(Copyright, 1894, by the Uuited l'ress.J
London, Feb. 24.���The submission of the
Lords od the Parish Council's Bill has beeu
almost complete. It amply satisfies the
moderate Liberals who do not desire to
hector or embarrass Mr. Gladstone into declaring war ngxii'Ht tne Upper House. The
Radicals who are opposed to the Peers, first,
last and all, are still eager for the fray. On
Monday, when ihe Parish Council's Bill will
be returned in iis newly amended form to
the House of Commons, the' Radicals will
insist, upon restoring ttie clause giviug the
Councils cor. t* 1 of local cliuntics. Therein
little probability, however, of a iiip'uie he-
tween the Houses over this point alone.
The Ministers do not expeot and will not
permit the precipitation of a crisis for whioh
the Radicals are longing. The Cabinet prepared at its meeting yesterday
the Queen's speech and agreed at the
same time on the order, in which the
governmeut measures will be introduced at
the next session. This sequence of bills
was determined on: Registration Reforms,
Irish Evicted Tenants, Welsh Disestablishment and Local Option. The difficult
financial questions which arise from the
budget are the edficit and the simultaneoui
inciease of naval-expenditure, which will fill
out the programme with Bills voluminous
enough to protract the session far beyond
* he ucii.ii 1 mita.
If lhe Government plana be realized, however, the dissolution will take place iu
September. Already the issues of the coming electoral campaign are iu the political
foreground. The retreat of the Peers last
evening will undoubtedly moderate the
popular movement to abolish them. Nevertheless, the whole Liberal .party, while not
showing the egeroets of the Radicals for
immediate action, have aow determined
that the power of the Pee*$s to control Parliamentary Legislation mnK cease. Out of
deference to Mr. Gladsto ie, the Liberal
party may continue to giv. Home Rule the
first place on iu program it*, but the question of the Peers will be regarded as tbe
most vital and urgent issue of the hour.
The Speaker this week broaohed a plan
whioh has been suggested by several Cabinet
Ministers and is approved by many Liberal
commoners. The plan is the power of the
House of Lords to veto bills, passed by the
House of Commons to cease. The House of
Lords may continue its revisory and suggestive functions, may even initiate legislation, but when a bill once amended shall be
returned by them to the Commons, the decision of the Lower House shall be final. In
the event tbat the Peers absolutely reject a
bill tent up by the Commons, the Lower
House may reaffiim ihe measure, by resolution, and thus over-ride the rejection of
the Upper House. There are five Peers in
Mr. Glads'one's cabinet, and none of them
would support a measure to overthrow the
Upper Hi.uae. Three of them, however,
whilo prepared lo stand by their class, are
known to be willing to reform the Peers.
The ministers in question are the Earl of
Roseberry, Secretary of State for Foreign
Atfairs, Lord Herschell, Lord High Chancellor and the Earl of Kimberly, Secretary of
State for India.
Pai-nell's Widow's Husband'
London, Feb. 24.���The receivers of the
affairs of Captain O'Shea, formerly the husband of the widow of the late Charles
Stewart Parnell, have issued a detailed
statement of ihe assets and liabilities of the
bankrupt Captain. According to the statement, Captain O'Shea owes ��8,000 which he
offers to settle at 7 shillings in the pound.
This offer the receivers advised the creditors
to accept.
The Hohenzollern Hailing Himself.
Berlin, Feb. 24. Emperor William went
to B'-andenbert! city to-day to attend the
annual h_quet ut the Diet of Brandenburg
Province. Dr. Van Aschenbach proposed
the toast to the Empeior aB Margrave of
Brandenburg. The Emperor expressed his
thanks for lhe president's assurances of loyalty, and then unveiled a large crayon
which he presented to the Diet. The crayon
showed the scene at the first hoisting ot iho
Hohenzollern standard in the Mark. The
Emperor reviewed the history of Hohenzollern rule in Brandenburg. The Margraves,
he said, had aimed ever at the welfare of all
classes. He himself had a warm heart for
all his subjects, especially for the peasants,
who were the backbone of the Mark.

What SUver Dealers Say.
London, Feb. 24.���London dealers in
ailver say that the fall in silver has been
over done. Unless the impending duty in
India be prohibitory, they think recovery
will be sure as India will still be allowed to
buy muoh of the metal, A prohibitory duty
however, would surely cause a still deeper
decline of prices.
An Anarchist of Letters.
Pakis, Feb. 24.���Jean Graves, an anarchist of letters, was tried in the oriminal
court to day for having published a book
entitled " Societe Mourante," which it was
oharged contained matter calculated to incite to revolution and to the overthrow of
existing institutions. Elize E. Reclus, the
famous geographer, testified warmly in favor
of the prisoner. Octave Mirabeau declared
that Graves had a superior mind and was
regarded as a literary authority. Graves
was sentenced to pass two years in prison
and to pay a fine of 1,000 francs.

and has nut been found. He nad embezzled
2,0*00 florins. One oi the money bags in his
care has been emptied of gold pieces and
filled with copper. Ferles ia believed to have
squandered all the money that he stole upon
the directress of a circus. He had been intimate with her for some time, and had
supported her in expensive style. His own
family lived more modestly, although expensively enough to make the impression that
Ferles was rich.
Victoria Martin vs. British Museum.
London, Feb. 24.���The trial of the action
brought by Mrs. Victoria Woodhull Martin
against tne trustees of the British Museum
for holding in their possession books libeling her character, was resumed in the High
Court of Justice to-day. Mrs. Martin took
the witness stand and retold in her vindication, the story of her relations to the
Beecher-Tilden scandal; how she was led to
adopt the theories of marriage she had advocated and many other incidents
of her life. Mr. John Biddulf
Martin, the husband ot the plaintiff, was
then called. He said that, before making
Mrs. Woodhull his wife,   he  was well ac.
?uainted with her writings, and had closely
ollowed her career long before she oame to
England. He had never Been one word endorsing the views expressed in the articles
attributed to her, but whioh Bhe has ex
plioitly repudiated; views which he believed to be distinctly contrary to tiers.
After further testimony, the case was adjourned.      	
The Anarchist World. '
Berlin, Feb. 24.���The anarchists Paul-
owolz and Petersdorf, charged with publicly inciting to violence, were to-day
sentenced to prison for nine and three
months respectively.
Paris, Feb. 24.���Leo. Lauthier, the anarchist, who stabbed and seriously wounded
M. Georgevitch, the special envoy of Servia
to France, in November last, was sentenced
to life imprisonment to-day.
Vienna, Feb. 24.���The trial of the anarchists Franz Hasps), Stephen Havel,
Mathias Stetka, Martin Stikul, Kail Kin
kal, Johan Wopateckio, Karl Nomwetz,
Joseph Suhnel, Michael Welli.er, Mathias
FleitMclihuUS, Joseph Komick aud Karl
Ke'Zel aud two i.tneis, charged with conspiracy against the life of Emperor Francis
Joseph, and were all supposed to be closely
connected with the anarchists of America,
ended to-day. Eight of the prisoners were
acquitted, Haspel and Havel, the leaders
were sentenced to ten and eight
years imprisonment respectively; two
were condemned to four years eaoh and the
sentences of the remaining two, who are
also believed to be members of the Omla-
dina, and ooncerned in the murder of Rudolf Merva, were deferred, pending further
inquiry. The morning newspapers correct
last night's reports as regards the result of
the anarchist trial. Six and not eight of
ihe fourteen prisoners were acquitted.
Haspel, Havel and six others were sentenced
to terms varying between two and four
years. The report thit two sentenoes were
deferred was false.
A   MEETING   OF   SPORTS.
Champion Corbett Boxes With  Mitchell
in Aid of the New York Poor.
New i ork, Feb. 24.���A large and appreciative assemblage witnessed the mammoth
athletic carnival at Madison Square Garden
to-night, gi ven in aid of the poor of this
city. The programme waa large and the
show first-class in every particular. The
first event was in the shape of an exhibition
of feats of strength by Prof. Attila, of Germany. The second event was a wrestling
match of one round between Wm. Muldoon
and Ernest Roeber. They wrestled ten
minutes Grieco-Roman style, without either
man getting a fall. The next event was a
bout of catch-as-catch-can wrestling between Hugh Leonard, N. Y. A. C, and
Prof. McFadden, of St. L- uis. This was
declared a draw.
Jack and Billy Slavin, brothers of Frank
Slavin, gave a fair exhibition of sparring. A
broad sword combat between Duncan C.
Ross and F. S. Costellano, was another
feature of the exhibition. The Italian was
no match for Ross, who simply out pointed
him in every way. A most interesting bout
was the contest between Eddie Loeper, ot
Brooklyn, and George Dixon, featherweight
champion of the world Dixon punished
him badly in the first round. The second
round was also of a spirited nature, but the
points were in favor of Dixon. The third
round was the liveliest of the three.
Dixon went in to put Loeper out, but
he found it no easy task. The both fought
hard and punished each other right and left
until they were very tired at the call of
time. Jerry Barnett was to have met
young Griffo, the featherweignt champion
of Australia, but failed to put in an appearance. Griffo announced that he would
.fight anyone in the house of hiB weight.
The challenge was accepted by Walter
Campbell, of Philadelphia, but before they
had time to gel them ready the band struck
up and James J. Corbett stepped upon
the stage. He was met with loud applause
He was accompanied by Billy Delaney.
Charley Mitchell, with Billy Thompson, his
manager, also get a hearty welcome. John
Kelly and Snappy Garrison were also intro-
duo d and applauded. The boxing, however, was far from being a repetition of the
Jacksonville contest, and the best, of good
fellowship existed between the two meu and
they made matters very interesting for the
spectators by sparring three light and scientific rounds. Hitting was not bard enough
to Bhow that they had ability to do hard
hitting were it necessajy.
Skating at Duluth.
Duluth, Minn., Feb. 24.���Tom Scott, of
Minneapolis, was defeated this evening by
R, J. McLeod, of Duluth, in the final contest for the Governor's medal and the Mer-
riam trophy. They will remain in Duluth.
The match was an interesting and exciting
one, and was one by the Duluth rink by a
score of 16 to 11.

Washington, D. C, Feb. 24.���After

effort to get a quorum to vote or consider
Mr. Bland's bill to coin the seignorage of the
treasury silver bullion, the House ad-
joured until Monday. One hundred and
fifty-ninn was the largest number that could
be rallied by Mr. Bland in support of his
motion, and at 3 o'clock he gave up the
battle for the day, sayiug it was evident the
bondholders meant to filibuster, The House

Toronto, Ont. Feb. 24.���An Ottawa
special says the city is greatly excited over
the alleged crisis in the Dominion Cabinet.

Works respectively, have resigned because
of tbe difference in the Cabinet over Manitoba's sohool question.
Official Peculators.
Detroit, Mich., Feb. 24.���The Journal
this evening says, that an investigation
which it has been pursuing at Lansing for
some days, shows that several state officers
have been guilty of extensive peculations
from the State treasury. The Journal.

Sti'e Treasurer Hamhitzer and Land Commissioner Berry have made charges for
mileage, hotel bills and other expenses
which the law does not give them the right
to collect from the State.

Liability ami Local Governments bills has
aroused a strong feeling of opp**i*i< on to hiB
course on the part of the Queen aud tbe
Prince of Wales. The reigning family, the
Chronicle adds, has always had a keen sense
of its own interests, and more than once has
exerted its influence to prevent the Peers
fiom engaging in a conflict which might
h��> <ib end in totally readjusting the con-
stiiu ton.

All About a Cheek.
San FRANCISCO, Feb. 24.���To-day Daniel
Meyer the banker, received from Havana
tor collection a check on the Bank of California, which was made payable to Herman
Schneider or order, and bore the alleged
signature of Thomas Brown, cashier of the
Bank of California, The check called for
$1,500 and the original endorsement in
Spanish indicates that it was paid to original reoipient for value reoeived. Two
subsequent endorsements merely stated that
the check had passed through certain hands
for collection. The signature in no way
resembles that of Brown, and the people
who paid money on oheck were very easily
duped. A similar forgery was recently perpetrated in Central Amerioa. 2

In the course of a lengthy letter to the

Kaslo will be the largest town in West
Kootenay, situated as it is at the eastern
extremity of Kaslo Pass. It is the first
town the Americans reach, and the majority
of the deals that are not worked up in
Spokane are arranged here. The chances
are that it will soon get ahead of Spokane
in these matters, and will also he the commercial metropolis of the country. In order
to prove what a large fuel or the American
element is, I may say that over three fourths
of the guests at the Hotel Sl**can register
fiom the States. I may say that a majority
of the Canadians who come here are from
Winnipeg, with Toronto a good second, and
that not a single name from Vancouver
Island or the coast has appeared on the
books for the last two months. If the Kas
lo-Slocan railroad goes into operation this
year Kaslo is all right.

SUNDAY, FEBRUARY 25, 1894.
THE U. 8. SENATE AND THE COAL
DUTIES.
The announcement tbat the U. S. Senate
has decided ao far to yield to the clamors of
the protectionists in the United States as to
have resolved to retain a duty of 40 or even
perhaps 50 cents a ton on imported coal is
not good news for the coal interests of
British Columbia. It is in faot greatly to
be regretted that the Senate has arrived at
this decision. It will hinder the people of the
United States on the Pacific Coast from
enjoying the privelege of being able to
purohase at the lowest price the superior
coal mined in British Columbia, and it will
also hinder the people of Eastern Canada
from importing free the anthracite coal of
Pennsylvania, so extensively use at this
season in that part of the Dominion, and it
may be added so necessary to the comfort of
the inhabitants of our eastern cities and
towns in winter. The Dominion Government will of course retain a similar duty on
eoal imported fmm the United States, to
that imposed by the Americans on coal
imported to the States from Canada. The
proposed amendment by the United States
Senate of the Wilson tariff, in the matter of
coal, will therefore be productive of
widespread evil on both sides of the
continent, for there is no reason to doubt
that if the Americans had placed coal on
the free list the Dominion Government
would have done the same when next month
they come to amend the Canadian tariff.
The incident also shows the wisdom of the
Dominion Government in waiting to know
���what changes the Americans will make in
-their tariff before proceeding to reform the
Canadian tariff. Sir John Thompson, the
Dominion Premier, is pledged to meet the
Americans step by step in the matter of
tariff reform, but he will not, and we think
he ought not to go an inch beyond that. It
is sufficient if the Dominion Government
goes as far in the matter of tariff reform as
the Americans. The latter have no moral
claim to expect privileges in the Canadian
market which they refuse to Canadians in
the American.
in'the summer of 1892, and that he did
nothing at all to check its progress. Dr.
Davie was appointed with summary powers,
only after Mayor Beaven had proved his incapacity, and in a very short time he succeeded in arresting the plague by devising
and enforcing proper sanitary regulations.
Mayor Beaven did nothing but raise objections about the expense it would be to do
anything to improve the sanitary condition
of the city which had chosen him for
its ohief magistrate, at the very
time when the smallpox was threatening the
lives of its inhabitants and seriously injuring its trade. He could simply be got to do
nothing. Dr. Davie, on the contrary, by his
vigorous methods soon stopped the plague at
very small cost, and saved Victoria and the
Province from the calamity with which both
were seriously threatened. Now the man
who did nothing turns round and for political purposes, in order to make a point
against the Government, attacks the man
who did so much to save, not the oity of
Victoria only, but the Proviuce at large
from the serious calamity with which both
were threatened. Mr. Beaven may be
assured that the people of British Columbia
are not quite so stupid as he supposes, that
tbat they estimate him at his proper value,
and despise his conduct both then and now
as it deserves. They will, he may be sure,
be in no hurry whatever to make a man who
could not discharge the duties of mayor of
Victoria with even common efficiency,
Premier of the Province. He does very
well to fill the position of leader of the Opposition, whose ohief duty it is to carp and
find fault, but they will take good care
never again to plaoe him or any of his followers in a higher and more responsible
position.
THE ATTACK MADE BY THE OPPOSITION ON DR. DA VIE.
Dr. Watt, during the debate on the
budget on Friday, drew attention to a
point which deserves notice. Speaking, he
said, from personal knowledge, he thought
that, since the appointment of Dr. Davie as
Provincial Health Officer had been so much
diBcussed in the House, he ought to point
out that the appointment of that gentleman had been made at the. instance
of a meeting of medical men held on the
9th of July, 1892, and the fact of
his being a near relative of the Premier had
nothing to do with the matter, Dr. Davie
being chosen solely on account of his ability
and fitness for the office, In the speaker's
opinion, the result had fully justified the
choice made. The only thing Dr. Watt regretted was lut D*. Divit* Mm! resigned the
office too *������ o i, Hi cmsilmeil that Dr.
Davie, so far in in !>��� iuk overpaid for his
services, had bee p.,d Ur too small a sum
for the work he had accomplished. He further thought that it was a very mean thing
for any member of the House to make an
attack upon a man, who had rendered unquestionable service to the provinee, merely
because he was a near relative to the Premier and because the parties attacking him
and objecting to the remuneration he had
reoeived hoped thereby to make a point
against the leader ot the Government.
There can be no doubt whatever that Dr.
Watt is right in his estimate of the whole
affair. Dr. Davie at a serious orisis rendered a very important service to the provinoe at large and to the city of Victoria in
particular. Every man of intelligence in
British Columbia acknowledges this and no
right minded and candid man will say that
lis was over paid for his services. The
leader of the Opposition and his organ, the
Victoria Times, in saying so and trying to
make political capital out of the affair have
���imply inonrred the contempt of every intelligent man in the provinoe. It iB especially
indicative of small-mindedness on Mr. Beaven's part to aot as he has done in this matter. It shows him to be envious and spiteful as well aa small-minded, for it iB not to
be forgotten that he was mayor of Victoria
when the smallpox broke  out in that city
Thk report from Monte Video that all
the vessels of the Brazilian Government
fleet, except the dynamite cruiser Nich
theroy, have joined the insurgents ought to
be decisive of the result of the war, if it is
confirmed by later news. It ia evident that
Preaident Peixoto is hard pressed aa it ia,
notwithstanding the stories circulated by
the Americans to the effect that the insurgents are practically on their last legs, and
that Peixoto is aure aoon to win. If lying
would win the fight, the Americans would
soon achieve victory for him. It is one of
the most remarkable facts connected with
the war, that the Americans, with all their
boasted love of freedom, should favor as
they do a tyrant like Peixoto, who haa been
tryinp to make himself absolute under republican forms, and who haa literally crammed the jaiU of Rio de Janeiro with persons who are only suspee'ed of being
opposed to him. He has also caused
many persona to be mercilessly shot to
death by his soldiers because it was
suspected, or it may be proved, that they
sympathised with the insurgents. If a man
with the rank and style of king or emperor
would dare to do such deeds as Peixoto has
been guilty of there is not a paper in the
United States which would not denounce
him in the most unsparing terms as o cruel
tyrant and murderer. But because Peixoto
is nominally the president of a repubiic, the
Americans sympathise with him, wish him
success, and are silent when the atrocities
he haa committed are reported. It is a
curious illustration of the old proverb, that one man may with
impnnity steal a sheep, where another man
dare not for his life look across the hedge.
The attitude assumed by the Amerioans in
the matter of the civil war in Brazil is not
creditable to their intelligence, especially
as it is not even known for cer'aiu I hat the
insurgents are fighting for the restoration of
the empire in Br��z*l. They msy be simply
fighting, aa they claim, to put down a military despotism. In any case, uo despotism
could be worse thau that set up by Peixoto,
and the rule of an emperor like Dom Pedro
would without doubt or question be tar
better.

Parliament Has a Protraeted Sitting
���Chairman Martin Makes a Novel
Ruling.
Victoria, Feb. 24.��� [Special]���After the
loogeat sitting on record the Provincial Legislature adjourned at half past one this afternoon, having been in continuous session
for only half an hour ahort of the twenty-
four. The latter half of the sitting proved
quite sensational, the Opposition party had
made up their minds to talk against time,
and so delay the passage nf the testimonials
that the government would be forced into
proceeding with ihe Redistribution Bill,
the most important of the session. Before
the supply had been voted, and yesterday
afternoou whon the committee of supply
was formed for the first time, obstructive
tactics commenoed. The Government took
the matter good naturedly uutil after midnight, when the inspiration came to some of
the more knowing members to apply the
cloture according to the late uaageaof the
Britiah Houae of Commons, which are the
same pattern as followed here. The attempt
to put thia plan into force caused a scene of
great disorder, and the ohairman of the
'Committee had three times to call in Speaker
Higgina to discipline the refractory mom-
era.
At one stage the Hon. Robert Beaven,
the leader of the Opposition, created a sensation by threatening Chairman Martin,
who had to be awakened from a sound sleep
in his ohair, that if he persisted in ruling
as he had done, he would advertise through
the length and breadth of the piovinoe that
the disorders were caused "by the introduction of something into this building whioh
should not be allowed within its walls."
Beaven is a cold-water man at 8 o'olock
S. m. j in the morning Beaven left in high
udgeon, denounoing the Government members as a lot of blackguards beoause they
would not consent to an adjournment.   .
The Government insisted on sitting
until all the estimates, inoluding two
batches of aupplementaries had been passed
and in the last few hours they were put
through with lightning rapidity. A new
ruling waa made by Chairman Martin in the
early morning hours. Col. Baker, Provincial Secretary, having aatounded the
House bv gravely asking the ruling on
whether it ia in order for a member to wipe
his nose on hia fingers. Mr. Kitchen, member from Chilliwack, having the floor, had
to ait down while the ohairman seriously
ruled that it was quite in order for Kitchen
to wipe his nose on hia fingers if he saw fit.
The city counoil has determined to reduos
by 15 per cent all official salaries over $100
per month, aud by 71 per cent, all between
��60 and $100. Trustee Marchant alao proposes to have a similar ont made in the salaries of city achool teachera.
J. Murdock, John Cooper and A. Hill
left thia morning for the heardquarters of
Peace river, where they expect to locate
rich placer claima. They go equipped and
supplied for two years.
PRENDERGAST SENTENCED.
Mayor Harrison's Murderer is Doomed
at Last.���A Fellow Murderer Objeets
to be Hanged With Him.
Chicago, 111., Feb. 24.���Prendergast,
who was to-day sentenced for the murder
of Mayor Harriaon, grew Burlier as the day
advanced after receiving his sentence. When
a reporter called at the jail to-night and
asked the assassin if he had anything to say
regarding his sentence, he oried out: "No,
not to reporters. I don't want to aee reporters nor to talk to them. The preaa has
no interest in me further than to get news
out of me. The newspapers of Chicago are
against me. No man is safe from vilifi-1
cation, abuse and personal attack from the
newspapers. I have nothing to ajty to the
press.   It has plenty to say about me."
Thomas Higgina, sentenced to be hanged
Maroh 23 with Prendergast, waa diaguated
when he learned the news. "I have a notion to commit suicide," aaid the murderer
and burglar. "When it oomes my turn to
shuffle off I want Irish hemp and a green
shroud, but I draw the line on being compelled to pass out with Prendergast. Somehow I can't appreciate that fellow's great.
ness. Perhapa I am obtuse, anyway if I am
allowed any voice in the matter I shall not
line up on the scaffold with the man who
killed Carter Harrison."

Sohool of Penmanship.
The young man with a bad handwriting
who seeks employment among business men
finds there is no demand for his awkwardness at any price. Everyone who uses a
pen should write legibly and attractively.
There is no excuse in these days for a young
person to write in a slovenly manner. This
should be left to thoae of a past gen* ration,'
who were educated before the daya of business training schools. Here all of ordinary
intelligence and application can acquire a
good Business handwriting, the value of
whioh is not easy to compute.
The Nanaimo Business College has a
speoial department of nenmanahip, at the
head of which ia Mr. J. R. Denneny, who
is acknowledged to be not only one of the
finest penman in the world, but one of the
best teachers and developers of good pen

LOCAL  NEWS.
Y. M. C. A. Last Night.
Last night the Wellington Choral Society
gave a most interesting entertainment at
the Y. M. C. A Hall there being a large
audience present. The aonga given by Mrs.
M. Harris and Miss Matthews, were particularly good and well deserved the encores
that they received. The vocal solos by Mr.
John Black and Mr. J. J. Thomas also
received recalls. Tho quartette given by
Messrs. J. J. Thomas, J. R. Barber, J. C.
Hughes, and T. Noel, was most heartily reoeived, and with different selections by
the Wellington Male Voices, were recalled
with great vigor. The instrumental selections were in each case well rendered and as
evidence of the appreciation met wiih, were
recalled. The large crowd that attended
the concert v as in all cases surprised at
the excellence of the programme brought before them Inst night. Whilst the careful
training of the voices present waB exhibited
in every instance during the evening. The
many friends of the Wellington Choral
Society, consider that they are to be most
heartily congratulated on their splendid performance.
Election Items.
It is proposed that the next Provincial
Government shall be a thoroughly representative one, where not only labor shall
be represented but every particular branch
of business.
In view of the fore *^oing, it haB been -suggested that Mr. Thompson of the I. X. L.
stable shall stand for the livery interests at
the next election
Mr. Hugh Dempsey of the Windsor House
will improbably make a platform in the
Hostelries interest.
There is a general consensus of opinion
that Mr. Brown of the Box Clothing Store
will out fittingly represent gents' furnishings,
and will not only improve the address of
the house but also its dress.
Barney, of the Cigar Box, and "Peanut
Charley," of the alfresco lunch buffet, have
also been mentained as probable candidates
for their particular callings, but, their views
on the matter have not yet been ascertained.
To accomodate all these suggested aspir
antB, there will be several ridings, and
riders, added to the city and district.

KASLO!!
KOOTENAY LAKE, B.C.
IS COMING TO THE FRONT WITH A BOUND
It is the center of the Silver-Lead Mining Industry of the famous Slocan Region, which is now
sending $75,000 worth of Ore to Kaslo per week for shipment to the American smelters.
Mining men from all parts of the world say that it is the richest silver district known. The progress of development work in the mines verifies this statement.
Thousands of men will be employed in these mines. The natural base of supplies is Kaslo, which
is admirably adapted for the purpose, being a beautiful townsite, situated on a bay possessing excellent
shipping advantages.
The right of way for the Kaslo-Slocan Railway has been cleared, and the bridge foundations
have been put in place, so that the work of grading and track-laying may proceed at the earliest possible moment after the snow disappears.
The growth of Kaslo last year was very considerable. It is now an incorporated town, having a
population of 2,000 people. That this population will be doubled before the end of the present year is
unquestioned.
Kaslo offers to investors a most promising field. The opening up of the mines tributary to it
must build up Kaslo. The development of these mines is now in progress. Many others will be worked as soon as easily accessible.   An investment in a Kaslo lot will pay you handsomely.

The space below is reserved for the latest news from the Kaslo-Slocan District.
LATEST, FEBRUARY 22nd, 1894:
KASLO-SLOOAliT.
(From the Kaalo-Slocan Examiner.)
Seventy-five teams are at present bringing down
an<i hauling out ore
The assessment roll is now complete. Tbe value-
ation of Ka-lo property is pUv-cd at the low figure of
$350,000, which at the assessed rate of 16 mills on
the do lar gives the city $5,250
S. S. Bailey, manager of the Payne group of
mines, is taking out 8 me fine oie from the Mountain
Chief claim. (This is not Ge* rge Hughes' Mountain
Chief.) Some assays show 250 ounces in silver, while
picked specimens have gone as high as 1,000 ounces
in silver. ���
Despite the drop in silver, everything goes on as
usual in the SI* can, and all speak hopefully of tne
future. Cameron and McDonald have contracted to
rawhide and bring down 500 toils of ore from the
Grady group on Four Mile Creek to the shore of 81o-
can Lake at Silvertown. They are now putting up
the necessary buildings for their outfit and making a
trail. A good rawhide trail has been made to the
Payne mine, and 100 tons of ore is being brought
down to the Three Forks. This mine was the fiist
located in the camp and the ore is very rich., the owners ai\i Scott, McDonald and S S. Bailey. .   i
The Noble Five mine is now sending down a ear-
I' ad of specially picked ore, which the owners claim
will exceed anything that has yet been shipped from
the camp. Th Nome Five is still owne*l and worked
by the original locators, Ji.ck McGuigan is the business manager, nnd ihe broth rs Hennesy are in charge
at the mine. They have certainly got oue of the biggest bonanzas in the camp, and unless they got a very
big offer indeed, it is probable that they will told on
to it.
It is reported that the Finch outfit has struck
four feet of rich ore at the Vi'ginius in White Water
Basn. They have run in an 89-foot tunnel in two
months. Owners of other claims in the White Water
are jubilant over it. The C. P. R. surveyors are now
surveying the towiisite of Three Forks. The snow is
making their work very laborious.

DELIGHTS OF DINING.
HOW mttmLY THK 8PELL OF SOLEMN
ENJOYMENT MAY BE BROKEN.
Dishes Tbat Mm Their Peculiarly Subtle and *Loo*ly Character Demand AW
teotlon. Bev��r.ncf and flHanee In Stpi-
���ure'a Serloua Affliction.
For my thorough appreciation ot a
large and good dinner I am, I believe,
b_��bted to my ftither. He was a great
diner, and it is well known that the finest qualities of the English race are hereditary. My father suffered from gout,
and the doctors, who are a mass of prejudices, tell nie that I also have got it.
However, I am thankful to say that I
know my own constitution. What U
really the matter with me to a sort of
cold accompanied by inflammation in
one toe. It arises, I should say, from
overwork.   Old port is good for it
A fine appreciation of dinner should
be accompanied by a large income.
When my father died of apoplexy
(brought on by a quarrel with hia cook,
who was a fair instance of talent as diir-
tuict from genius), I succeeded to his
Imsttion in the firm, and to an income
wuich even in the city is considered to
be fairly large. I lovo largeness. I love
large incomes, large houses, large appetites, large waistcoats, large dinners. I
can never be too thankful that 1 can well
afford large dinners. It was always my
ambition to be, like my father, a great
diner, and it would be but false humility
to say that I shall die without having
earned the reputation.
I distinguish between the diner and
the diner out I do not want to be uncharitable, but I have no high opinion ot
the diner out He does not, as a rule,
take the dinner itself quite seriously. He
is liable to show an interest in the
women whom he takes in or in the conversation. Now, life is too short for
that division of interests; we only have
time to do one thing well. Let dinner
be that ono thing. I say, dine���merely
���line. That to enough. Do that well,
und you have the best delight that this
world can give yoa. Aa tot cocversa-
tion, I despise it
Now, there waa tho caae of Charles
Nutcomb. He was with us at one time
and might for family reasons have come
into a small partnership. It would not
have been much���some ��3,000 a year���
but ample for a young and unmarried
man who is willing to exercise ordinary
care. Charles was a diner out, and for
family reasons I once asked him to dine
with me, although in a general way I
will not have young men at my table.
At the very moment when we were eating a vol-au-vent that from its peculiarly subtle and lovely character demanded
the eater's attention, reverence and si-'
lenoe���at that very moment. Charles
Xntcomb was tactl-fss enough to tell
a story. It caused noisy laughter. It,
if I may use the phrase, co::-;iletely
broke tho spelj. It was like whi.uiing iu
church. However, it was not in consequence of this indiscretion alone that 1
finally decided to get rid of Nutuoinb.
lie refused port A man who refuses
port���my port���to a fool and consequently unfit to .be a partner in Gorg-
bury & Pigge. A fortnight afterward I
managed to make some excuse for getting him out of office. I feel positively
certain that he would have embezzled
money if he had remained. His after
career only confirmed my low opinion
of him. He went completely to tbe dogs j
���became an author, in fact.
But 1 aui not iftiduly devoted to wine.
Indeed I sometimes wonder whether I
am more foml of that or of the solid part
of the dinner. Both aro good. Both
bring out all thnt is best iu a man. The
feeling of gratitude, for {instance, is com- :
meudahle. It is impossible to think
much about the commonest viands���asparagus, the simple oyster, or even a cut
from a perfect saddle of mutton���without feeling grateful. Then, too, dinner
promotes the kindly spirit. When I lie
buck in my chair after dinner, breathing
sterlorously, my temper b.koines kindly
to the verge of fatuousness.
When in the mon,:ng a clerk arrives
an hour late an*! makes some paltry excuse���that his wife is dead, or some nonsense of that sort���I of course dismiss
him at once. But if I were to defor my
decision until the evening I should very
likely confine myself to fining him a
week's salary. If it were his (listoff 'use,
ainl my dinner had been particularly
good, I might even let him off with a
reprimand. That is the reason why I do
no business under any pretext after dinner. It is all very well to feel kindliness, but one has to be careful that the
feeling Blmll not  influence one's actions.
How inseparable from our dearest delights are our deepest sorrows! I have
but one Berious affliction, the great soup
���the soup of the city���has not a real attraction for me. It is richly expensive;
it is hallowed by a thousand historical
associations; it has brought ecstasy to the
hearts of men with larger incomes than
1 shall ever possess, but to nie it iB almost a closed book. Sometimes when I ;
um eating it at a city banquet I feel as ,
if I couhl see afar off its perfect meaning and catch dim glimpses of its su- '
perb generosity. But that is all. lean-
not love it as I know that it ought to be
loved.
Heretofore I have kept my affliction a
secret, but last night, when Thomaa
Pigge and I were dining with the Fen-
denuakers (one of the 12 principal companies), I noticed that he was watching
me. He saw that I did not really understand that soup. However, 1 am not
afraid that Thomas Pigge will ever dare
to reproach me for thia He alao has his
weak point, and, as he is aware, I know
it He to quite unorthodox om the subjeot ef sauoe hollandaise. He has a theory M to the correct preparation of II
whioh oan only be characterised aa daa-
geroua and revolutionary.

EXPERTS 8AY THAT SLANTING SCRIPT
CAUSES DISEASE.
A Movement In Faror of Vertical Script
Backed by the Highest Medical Authorities���Results of Kxtenaive Experiments
With School Children.
The method of writing taught in modern schools and practiced by 99 people
out of every 100 has been declared dangerous and unhealthful by experts. By
the time the next generation matures it
will probably have been wiped out. The
script then will be vertical instead of
slanting, and writers will sit square and
upright before their work instead of sideways and stooped, as at present
The idea of this prospective reform originated in Germany and overspreads
England while reaching this country.
The following resolution was adopted
not long ago by the international congress of school hygiene in London by a
vote of 229 against 1:
Whereas, The hygienic advantages of verticil writing have been clearly shown and established both by medical Investigation and
practical experience, and
Whereas, Its introduction obviates those pernicious positions of the body which entail rachitic diseases nnd myopia.
Resolved, That we recommend the Introduction of vertical writing in tha school* of the
people.
The effect of so serious an action in a
country esteeming proper physical conditions as England esteems them to
readily to be imagined.
The corresponding movement in the
United States is led by Dr. Burnham ol
Clark university. His investigations
have brought the conviction that the ordinary position in writing is among the
foremost conditions of school life and
methods of training which must be
changed in the interest of health. The
vertical script, therefore, is strongly
recommended. From 80 to 90 per cent
of lateral curvature of the spine to found
to be caused in school life, the curvature
in a large per cent of these cases being
toward the right side, as a result of a
defective position in writing, and the
eyes at the same time are seriously injured by this slanted writing.
Tne practical advance of the ndwly
approved system in this country is illustrated in the Worcester normal school
and the Workinginen's school at Fifty-
fourth street in this city, directed by
Professor Adler, where the vertical
writing is used in the lower grades and
now carried on to the fourth and fifth
grades.
The observations of foreign physicians
showing that the prevalence of myopia
and spinal curvature is regularly increased in the advance through the
school grades are supplemented in this
country by work on novel lines. An energetic course followed by Dr. Shaw of
the University of the City of New York
has given additional proof that the cause
of the difficulty is to be attributed to the
desks which are generally in use, and
more especially to the bad position in
writing, the opinion being held with apparent unanimity by investigators in
this country as well as abroad that all
but two positions to be taken iu the
school practice of writing are improper.
One judged to be correct is the oblique
central position and the other the
straight central position, between which
in reference to final choice the controversy in Germany is said to be fierce.
The advocates of reform observe that
the child writes vertically when he first
goes to school, and that the teacher has
to work for the slant The vertical writing und the central -position at the desk
are alike naturally indicated. At this
stage the controversy hus led to the conclusion that the height of the desk and
that of the seat must be equally adapted
to the growth of the pupil. In some of
the progressive schools, as Felix Adler's
and at South Orange, N. J., adjustable
seats are being used.
The point in Dr. Shaw's recent experiments, made with the aid of several assistants on more than 1,300 pupils iu the
New York and suburban schools, has
been to seo whether, with the paper directly in front of the pupil and with the
eyes closed, there could be any tendency
toward vertical writing. The pupils
were first requested to take the customary position ;.i writing, and to write in
tho ordinary manner the sentence, "John
to flying his paper kite." This form of
exercise wns selected on account of the
number of long letters which it contains,
and as being one also that is easy for tlie
child to remember. After having thus
written the sentence, the pupil was directed to take the straight central position, dip his pen in the ink and with his
eyes closed to write the same again.
The dosing of the eyes was to eliminate from the child's mind the consciousness of the slant. The angle of Blunt in
all tbe long letters in the test papers wus
carefully measured, the angle of slant in
the usual writing in each ease being i.Ijo
found with the same precision. The
measurements and the calculations ran
ap to 8,000 items, and among other issues
of the work was the invention by a lady
of a machine for making the measurements.���New York Press.
