London, Doc. 5.���In a letter he haa
written on the Irish land question, the
Bight Hon. Joaeph Chamberlain, the Liberal
Unionist!)' leader in the Eouae of Commons,
declares that his views on the subject have
undergone no change. He does not seek,
however, to bind the Liberal Unionists to
his views. It is bis belief that the solution
of the question must be found through
purchase only. Dual ownership by means of
the tenant fixing authority, has no element
of finality. Tne suite ought to adopt legislation pioviding that when three fourths of
the tenants of any estate are anxiousto buy,
the landlords shall be compelled to sell, Iu
the case of landlords having to sell, if three
fourths of the tenants refuse to buy, the
state will purchase. The landlord will get
a fair value for his property, excluding any
thing for the compulsory sale of the first
grant allotted. The effeot of the operation
ought not to exceed ��33,000,000 as proposed
in the Balfour Act.

their intention to hold a meeting in spite
of ths authorities. They had upon

A Dangerous Sentiment.
Dublin, Dec. 5.���Timothy Harrington,
member of Parliament for the harbor divi
siou of Dublin, addressed a meeting of the
National League in this oity thia evening.
He said that since the Mathews commission
made its report, the Oovernment had shown
no internum to carry out the commission's
recommendations. lhe National League
wished to keep the country peaceable aa
long aa poaaible, but if peace was to be
maintained only by keeping the unhappy
evicted tenants in their preaent position, it
would not be maintained by them (ap
plause). When the proper time came the
league would not be alow in advising evioted
tenants to retake their holdings.
he held many public positions in St. John.
No Truth In It.
Ottawa, Dec. 5.���A recent Washington
despatch stated that the work of United
States immigration inspectors at. Halifax is
causing difficulty with the Canadian
authorities, the people of Halifax complaining that European paupers, cripples and
criminals are dumped into Canada by the
United States officials. Hon Mr. Daly,
Minister of the Interior, says there is not a
scintilla of truth in the despatch. There
has not been the slightest difficulty with
lhe Canadian authorities, because ihe examination of immigrants is made altogether
on shipboard. If the inspectors should eject
auy immigrant as ineligible to enter the United
States, he would not be allowed to settle in
Canada. No European paupers, cripplea
and criminals are allowed to land in Canada
under any circumstances. Only one immigrant has been rejected by the United Statea
officers since the inspection arrangement
came into force.
The New Italian Cabinet.
Rome, Dec: 5.���It is definitely announced
this evening that the new cabinet has been
constructed as follows: President of the
council and minister of the interior, Giuseppe
Sanardelli; minister of the treasury and
ad-interim minister of finance, Pietro
Vacchelli; miniater of justice, Calcedonio
Inghilleri; miniater of works, Alesaandro
Fortes; minister of war, General San Mar-
zano; miniater of agriculture, Franceso
Ecou Oitu; minister of posis and telegraphs,
Scipiune Dibhtsio; minister of foreign affairs,

Niccolo Galli; minister of marine, rear-
admiral Carlo Alberto Racchia.
A Chance for a Dime Novelist.
Paris, Dec. 5.���The naval tribune at
Brest began to-day the trial of Alexander
and Joseph Rorique, brothers, and another
man named Mirea, on the charge of mutiny
and murder. The defendants were members
of the crew of lhe Minoihati, a vessel belonging to �� Tahitian prince, in January,
1892. It is said they mutinied, shot the
native captain and the English aupercargo
Gibson, aud poisoned six Kanaka seamen.
Then they seized the veasel, loaded her
with various products, valued at 40,000
francs and changed the ship's name. They
landod at little frequented islands, impressed Polynesian natives into the orew
and disposed of the cargo at various prices,
finally arriving at Ponape, The Roriquee,
fearing that Mirea could not be trusted,
threatened him with murder. Mirea, who
is a half-caste, waa the cook of the Minor-
hati, aud it waa he who, at the suggestion of
the other mutineers, poisoned the food of the
Kanakas. The threats of murder so alarmed
Mirea that, he made confession to the Gov
ernment officials. The case haa caused a
sensation in Brest. The precincts of the
court were crowded throughout the day and
until 8 o'clock this evening. The actual accusation fills 16 pages aud reads like a
thrilling novel.

The Corn Duty in France.
Paris, Dec. 5.���M. Leyguea, a member of
the Chamber of Deputies for the Viileneuve
Surlot division of Loire et Garonne, one of
the prinoipal agricultural departments, of
France, said in an interview to-day that he
intenda to propoae in the chambi r au increase of duty from five to eight francs.
The proposed increase of duty, he believes,
would enable French corn growers to gain a
fair living, wheieas, at present, they are
verging on ruin. The inorease would not,
he said, augment the retail price of bread,
but would diminish speculators' and middlemen's profits. He does not think that the
raising of the duty would affeot importation
from Amerioa.

foreign branches to cash its checks, against

The Bye Elections.
Toronto, Dec. 4.���The reaults of the two
bye elections for the Ontario Legislature in
the ridings of Nori h Bruce aud East Lamb-
ton proved a great surprise to the Mowatt
Government, which received good majorities
in both constituencies at the general election three years ago. East L imbton returned
McCullum, the Protestant Protf ct.ive Association oandidate, by 403 majority, while
North Bruce elected McNaughion, the Patrons of Industry candidate, by over 500.
The Empire, commenting on the result of
the bye elections, says: "The elections go
to show what we have been contending,
that there was widespread dissatisfaction
with the Mowatt policy. The Province is
saturated with discontent with the men and
methods of the administration, and as the
general election can only be a few months
off, events certainly aeem to point to the
downfall of the Government in the near
lulure."      	
A Noted Cleric Dead.
St. Johns, Nfld. Deo. 6.���The most Rev.
Thomas Joseph Powers, Roman Catholic
bishop of St. Jobna, died yeaterday aged 63.
He was born in Ireland in 1830 and was
ordained priest in 1854. He was consecrated bishop of this diocese in 1870 and was
a man of great intellectual attainments
He accomplished wonderful results in this
diocese. He died almost suddenly, having
been taken sick ouly Sunday Bishop
Brennan, formerly of Dallas, Texas, was
appointed his assistant two months ago.
Troopship Tyne Arrives.
Halifax, Dec. a.���The troopship Tyne,
from Porimouth ria Madeira and Bermuda,
with drafts, arrived this afternoon. Besides
drafts for Halifax she brought 112 men and
three officers for H.M.S. Royal Arthur, now
at Vanouver, to go by Canadian Paoific railway. 	
More Arrests.
Dublin, Dec. 5.���Two arrests were made
yesterday. The men are supposed to ha.e
been concerned in the recent dynamite e n-
rage at Oldborough barracks.

Will Cause Suffering.
< New Yu. *, Dec. o.���J. J. Mollehauer of
the Mollehauer Sugar Refining Co., of
Brooklyn aaid to-day: "There are about
6,000 men employed in the refineries on the
Williamsburg water front alone. We could
not if the propoaed schedule became a law
pay these men half what they receive now.
They probably would not work at reduced
wages and we undoubtedly would be obliged
to shut down." It is admitted that 20,000
people would be affected in Brooklyn if the
refineries should shut down.
To Defend the Public School Question.
New York, Dec. 5.���The executive committee of the National League for the protection of Amerioan institutions has issutd
a oircular appealing to all loyal Amerioan
citizens to ou-operate in every feasible way
in the defence of the Amerioan free public
school system. The circular explains that
the reason for anxiety for the school system
just now ia that a movement with audacious
demands and specious claims has been initiated in New York state' for the division of
publio school funds on sectarian lines, and
it is announced that the same programme is
propoaed for all the states.
WIU Get More Money.
PhiladesVhia, Dec. 5.���Jndge Dallas, in
the United States Circuit Court to-day, confirmed the report of special master Crawford, wherein the latter approves of the
making of an agreement between the Reading railroad and the Finance Company of
Pennsylvania. By this arrangement the
Reading will be enabled to obtain an advance to the amount of $3,000,000 from the
company, instead of $1,000,000 under the
eld agreement.
attempt upon the part of the police to prevent them, but the attention of the House
of Commons was called to the fact that the
anarchists at the last meeting in Trafalgar
square openly advocated a policy of blood
and dynamite, and beld up for glorification
the dynamite outrages at Barcelona, Marseilles and other places. The result was
that the borne secretary did not dare to
allow any further rope to the reds of London, and the police that afternoon mustered
a strong force about Trafalgar Square,
while reserves were stationed in Regent
street, Waterloo Place, Charing Cross road,
Northumberland avenue and on the Thames
Embankment.
The anarchists began to muster at 3
o'clock. The display of forces caused many
thousands to flock to the neighborhood.
Male and female anarchists mixed among
the people assembled about the square and
began hawking anarchist literature, which
found ready sale among the people. Copies
of the Common Weal, the organ of the anarchists of London, found ready sale. It
contained an article which weloomed the
Barcelona outrage as "a great and good
act." Anarchist and socialist manifestoes
were also distributed broadcast through tbe
crowds. Gradually the number of socialists
and anarchis's waa so augmented that it
gaiued couragfc euough lo puth toward tbe
center of the square. Finally a large and
excited crowd of anarchists and socialists
collected inside the square. The police
compelled the reds to move on. This caused
lhe anarchista to wave hats and hoot the
police, while aome of the spectators cheered
and others hissed
At exactly 3:10 a number of anarchists
made a null for th.- steps at the foot of the
Gordon statue, and one immediately began
to malre a wild address to those who had
rushed up to the steps with him, but the
anarchist orator had hardly uttered his first
sentence before a number of policemen
charged up to the apot and dislodged the
reds from the ateps. The attempt of the
anarchists to hr.ld thia meeting wem followed
by similar attempts, whioh resulted in a
number of lively brushea with the police.
During the dispersing of these anarchist
groups a number of reds were pretty roughly handled by the police, who threw them
from the steps. Eventually the anarchists
on the square became so demonstrative that
a further detachment of fifty police was sent
to the square.
Suddenly an anarchist rushed through
the lines of the police, scaled a monument
and began to address the crowd around him,
but had ouly U' tired a few words when a
policeman eeiztd him and threw him bodily
into the crowd. As the anarchist still tried
to speak he was seized by two policemen
and hustled off to the station, followed by a
shouting' crowd. Shortly before 3:30 a
further detachment of mounted police was
summoned to Trafalgar Square, and, after
drawing up in line, charged the mob,
scattering them in all directions, after which
the horsemen took up a position on the
south side facing the square, and the police
on foot began to aisperse the mob, who
made but slight resistance. About 4:30
a large body of anarchists made
a rush down Parliament street with
the intention of reaching Scotland
Yard, the headquarters of the police,
said to have been left with only a small
guard of policemen, but the superintendent
of the division policemen promptly dispatched a strong force of mounted and foot police
to Scotlar d Yard, the horsemen reaching
the point before the anarchists, and with
the assistance of police on foot the mob waa
scattered after much scuffling. In other
parts of Trafalgar square the police had
their hands full keeping the crowd in movement. Additional policemen were aent for
and made several charges down Northumberland avenue, past the Yictoria Hotel and
Grand Hod. Mounted police aJsu i barged
through Pall Mall, diiviug the .narchists
before them. The police made a number of
arrests, the prisoners being followed to the
stations by angry and excited crowds of anarchists, who loudly cursed Home Sec-
retaiy Henry Asqutth.       g
The "Gazette's" Opinion.
London, Deo. 5.���The Pall Mall Gazette,
commenting on the President's measage,
aays : The President shows that his courage
has not been diminished by the inexplicable
reversal he has met with in his policy of
government. The statement in tbe message
in reference to Hawaii causes ex-President
Harrison to hang hia head and hide his
blushes. Referring in the tariff, it says, in
the face of deficit, it is courageous to advocate cheaper tariffs.
Another Infernal Maohine Scare.
London, Dec. 5.���Great dismay and fear
wsb caused this morning among sheriff's
fficers who had been sent to distrain on
furniture belonging to a man named Schneider, living at Hampstead. The officers
found a suspicious looking trunk in Schneider's apartments and on opening it discovered what is believed to be an infernal maohine. It was taken to Bow street station.
Schneider ia from America.
Against Caprivi.
Berlin, Dec. 5.���There is an increased
agitation against the Russian and other commercial treaties and against Caprivi personally. This angers the Emperor. Shonld
the chancellor be influenced to resign office,
the Emperor will not accept his resignation,
preferring rather to dissolve the Prussian
Landtag, whioh he considers the hotbed of
intrigue*. NANAIMO, B. C., WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 6, 1893.
THE  ASSIZE   COURT
Opened Yeaterday, Juattiee Crease Pre-
BucUng ��� The Grand Jur-fe Preeent-
nunt.
Ths Fall Asaizes opened here yeaterday,
Hon. Mr. Juatice Crease presiding. Mr.
Gordon Hunter, Crown attorney, prosecuted.
The following Grand Jury were called
and sworn: Fred. L. Fisher (foreman),
Thomas Bennett, John W. Bryden, E. W.
Bickle, J. H. Daviaon, J. 0. English, T. C.
Galloway, Alex. Hendersdn, Jamea Kennedy, John Love, Murdoch Matheaon, Louis
Mounce, William Pringle, Bertram Steven-
ton, Ernest Robertson, Richard Marshall,
John Teague, Duncan MeNiven, Archibald
McGregor and Edward Taylor.
Mr. Registrar Bray informed the court
that there were no cases to come before the
jury.    Hia Lordship then
Addressed the Jury,
nforming that body that the fact that there
were n> cases to come before them was due
to the new act which gave the prisoners the
opportunity of relieving the jury and casting the responsibility upon the judge. His
Lordship said he realized the great assist-
assiatance rendered the court by a jury in
trying cases of a grave nature, and said : *'I
shall be very sorry to see the day when the
jury system will be done away with and the
whole responsibility thrown upon the
judge." Judges, he said, were human, the
same as other mortals, and liable to similar
influences that affect other men. Besides,
the court and the jury working together in
harmony were better able to deal with a
case than the judge alone, Referring more
especially to the Speedy Trials Act, His
Dordship said: " 1 believe it a popular
mode of trial both with the prisoner ae well
as with the profession, aad consequently a
great aucceaB, though I should not like to
see it extended."
He congratulal ed Nanaimo and district on
the absence of serious criminal cases and the
obedience to law and order prevailing here.
The Grand Jury then entered when the
petit jury were called and dismissed but not
discharged.
The Judge remarked he was sorry indeed
to aee the absence of the members of the
Bar at the reading of the Queen's commission.
After adjournment the case of Joe Shuok,
a Chinaman, was called. Mr. Barker,
counsel for the prisoner, asked for an adjournment for half an hour. The judge enlarged the case until ten o'clock this morning in order to allow the council to consult
the witnesses for the defence.
In the meantime trie charge of larceny
against Francis Robinson, Henry Bradley
Joaeph Welsh and Sweatman for stealing
from David Spencer, on the Crescent, Nanaimo a quantity of silk handkerchiefs, was
proceeded with.
Mr. Spencer, jr. being called, deposed:
I am manager of my father's store in Nanaimo. I missed from our store sometime
within two weeks before the time Sergeant
Gibbs spoke to me of them, a quantity of
silk handkerchiefs, about six dozen. I
identify the piece of cardboard box by the
writing thereon, as belonging to our store,
being part of a box containing Bilk handkerchiefs. Silk handkerchief produced marked "J" is the same color and design as
some that were contained in the box. All
the others look like our goods bat there are
no marks by which I can identify them. I
have no doubt the handkerchiefs produced
are ours. I missed another box about
thirteen inches square which was filled
with Bilk handkerchiefs also. I also missed
a grey shawl, (not produced). It disappeared on the evening of the day on which
Sergeant Gibba came to inform me of the
handkerchiefs.
To prisoner Sweatman, the witness said
he haa never seen any of the prisoners in
the store.
Benjamin Baker being sworn, said:���I
live on Haliburton street, Nanaimo. Am
attending bar at the Dew Drop Inn. I
recognize prisoners Sweatnam and Welch.
I saw them on the 24th November of thia
year. They came into the hotel about 9
o'clock in the evening and asked for a drink.
I refused them, they having no money.
Sweatman offered me a handkerchief, upon
receipt of which I gave them a drink. He
left the handkerchief on the counter and
went out. Handkerchief produced looks
like the one he left with me. I saw Sergeant Gfbbs a day or two after; I gave him
the handkerchief,
John Hough, being sworn, said:���I live in
Nanaimo. Am an hotel keeper and proprietor of the Balmoral House, Haliburton
street. I have seen the four prisoners in
my hotel. They aaked me what I would
give for certain handkerchiefs which they
showed me; not like any produced here;
don't know if they were silk; did not buy
nor handle them.
Samuel Fox, being sworn, said:���I live in
Nanaimo and work in the International
Hotel. I recognize Bradley, Sweatman and
Welch; saw them in the hotel about the
23rd November; they bought a drink. One
of the prisoners (Sweatman) placed a handkerchief on the bar and wanted two bits'
worth of whiskey for it. Handkerchief produced resembles the one offered. I gave
them the whiskey; they left the handkerchief on the bar. Sergeant Gibbs came in
and I gave it to him.
To prisoner Sweatman���I am sure you
are the man who giirje me the handkerchief.
Alex, Johns, being sworn, said, by aid of
an interpreter:���I live in Nanaimo camp.
Know Robinson; met him near Mr. Robins'
house. He stopped me and pulled out of
his pocket a handkerchief and wanted to
sell it to me for fifty cents. He offered me
three. Hand kerchiefs marked "L"and "M"
now shown to me are two ot those carried
by prisoner. I bought the two for fifty
centa. Mr. Gibbs came to the oamp and
got them from me. I saw the other three
men selling handkerchiefs in ihe camp at
Nanaimo about two weeks ago. Asked
them where they got them; Sweatman replied from his friends. Saw Sweatman
tear a mark off one of the handkerchiefs.
Robinson was not at the camp.
Edward Mills Norton, being sworn, said:
I live in Nanaimo, know Robinson the
prisoner, I got a handkerchief from him, I
think the one here produced. He gave it
to me on the street I did not see him with
any other handkerchiefs. This occurred about
two weeks ago. A young fellow took it out
of my pocket.
Bill Sim Sim (Indian) being sworn said,
by aid of an interperler: Know Sweetman
and Bradley. ; The latter came into my
house to sell lhe a coat and handkerchief,
being the one here produced marked "L."
I bought the coat for $1; he offered the
handkerchief for fifty oents; I got it for
thirty five cents. I heard Sergeant Gibbs
was looking for these artioles end I gave
them to him.
Sergeant Gibbs, being sworn said: Am
sergeant of Nanaimo Police.     Being shown
the handkerchiefs in court, I found the
pieces of the box in the cabin wbereBradley,
Welch and Sweetman live, I arrested Sweetman and Welch m the cabin, Bradly in the
Crescent Hotel and Robinson outside the
Crescent on the street; Sweetman and Welch
about 3:30 in the morning, Bradley about
five o'clock in the evening, and Robinson
the following Tuesday. Fooud the handkerchiefs produced npon Robinson ; the
others I got from the former witnesses.
Heard prisoners Sweetman, Welch and
Bradley talking in the   cell;   one   of them
said, "that other son-of-a-b h gave ua
away." They made a statement in the
court house that Robinson got those handkerchiefs for wagea.
This finished the evidence for the Crown.
Tbe learned judge asked the prisoners each
to come into the box and be examined under
oath if they chose.
Bradley being sworn, said: I live in
Nanaimo. I found these handkerchiefs in a
cabin on Haliburton street, where I went to
live. Sweetman, Welch and I were there
together; we went out selling them; we gave
a few to Robinson. We were under the influence of liquor all the time. Have been
in jail twioe for drunkenness, in Nanaimo,
and once in Vancouver. Have been steam-
boating, fishing and sealing.
Prisoner Welch took the* stand and corroborated Bradley's statement.
Prisoner Robinson, being sworn, said:
Sweetman gave me three handkerchiefs for
a pair of boots, at his cabin, he took them
from a box under his mattress. I sold two of
those he gave me and kept the other, I
stole the boota I traded to him for the proceeds of his steal. I was in jail in Nanaimo
once, about six months ago.
Prisonei Sweatman being sworn, aaid he
was thirty years old, and corroborated
Bradley and Welch.
All the prisoners were found guilty, the
judge reserving sentence.
The Grand Jury yesterday afternoon made
their presentment to bis lordship, urging
that the deputy registrar at Nanaimo be
given power to issue writs of summons for
the Supreme Court; and that appropriations
be made by the Government for a new
court house in this city. His Lordship replied thanking the jury for their services
and assured them that he would urge their
requests before the proper authorities.

BETTER BUILDINGS WANTED.
The Assize Court now being held here
again recalls the necessity for better court
house accommodation. The Grand Jury in
their preaentment urged the construction of
better buildings for court purposes, also that
arrangements be made to transact all business pertaining to Supreme Court work
here. We hope that the recommendations
of the Grand Jury will receive proper consideration at the hands of the Government,
and that the necessary appropriations will
be made at the next session for these purposes. The need of a land registry office is
also greatly felt in thia city. Complaints
are heard almost daily at the inconvenience
which the public is put to from the want of
a local land and registry office; and the fact
that this is a large and important district
doing a very large, daily increasing business
should not be lost sight of by the Govern
ment, even though our representatives may
not have impressed the matter upon its
members.
The time has now arrived when steps
should be taken with a view to have the
proper records kept in this city aa the centre
of a district extending, aay from (Jowichan to
the north of the island.
Enquiries mide at the Government office
at the present time elicit the information
that a very large number of records are received there to be transmitted to Victoria
for registration, and that thia is in ali probability but one half of those sent down, as
many people, instead of bringing their
papers to the Government office for transmission, send them direct. Moreover, after
being sent down, months often elapse before
any return of a certificate is forwarded, as
these application for record have to take their
turn. Seldom is a return made inside of a
week. All this delay and bother could be
obviated by having a local land and registry
office attended by a properly qualified legal
. gentleman, and we feel confident that the
expense connected therewith would be more
than met by the increased satisfaction given
to the public in the transaction of their
business.
We hope that, in tho plans of the building which we hope the Government will
shortly order to be drawn, the necessities
of a land and registry office will not be lost
sight of. Nanaimo has grown considerably
in the past four years, and we are satisfied
its importance and requirements have only
to be properly represented to the Government to receive due consideration. In fact,
this is one of the matters that should have received the attention of local representatives
during the past two or thrre yeara, Had
this been done, instead of the time of the
House being taken up in ventilating personal
grievances or in opposition to the Government for the sole purpose of assistinl others
to secure their job, it would have been muoh
better for thia   city  and   the   country   at
large- ���_________
Powderly Will Give Them Up.
Nkw York, Dec. 6.���Three new members
of the general executive board of the Knights
of Libor���Mr. Jamea N. Kenny, of Omaha;
H. Ii. Martin, of Minneapolis, and C. A.
French, of Marlboro, Maas.���went over to
Elba Island yeaterday afternoon. The object
of their visit was to thoroughly inspect the
manner of landing and disposing of immigrants, and particularly the disposal of
those who were contract labor suspects. It
so happened to-day that many who had
come to work in the mines of the country
under contraot were barred. When the labor
men had finished their journey, Mr. French
was seen and expressed himself in terms of
praise of the method now in vogue, and
said that he thought it a great improvement over the old system at Castle
Garden, which he carefully inspected
a few years ago. He said the grand maater
workman elect, James R. Sovereign, had
intended being one of the party, but was
detained in the city. In speaking of the
reported refusal of Mr. Powderly to give up
the papers and documents in his possession
belonging to the order, Mr. French said:���
"I do not think it is his intention even to
make an effort to retain them. Before I
left Philadelphia he assured me that as
soon as he returned to Scranton, he would
collect together everything belonging to the
order and forward them to the proper party."
Still on the Rooks.
San Francisco, Dec. 5.���The'steamer
City of New York is atill resting on the
rocks at Point Bonita. The pontoons have
not yet been towed out to her and it is said
thatHhe delay is occasioned by the fact that
the workmen on the steamer have not stated
that they are ready for the pontoons. More
favorable weather the wreckers oan hardly
expect and if she cannot be made to float
she will naturally hare to be abandoned.
~"~~~ Wh"j Grow Old.
I And that if old people are put on a
food meat diet ia the way of strong
loup, beef tea and animal food, and only
just sufficient farinaceous food and fats
and sugar to maintain the heat of the
body, they increase wonderfully in energy and, as they often express it, feel
20 years younger. This is only natural;
it is a food of energy���the food that
builds up muscle, nerve and constitutional stamina.
The requirements of the system in old
age as a rule are not great, and more
barm is done by taking too much food
than by taking too little. I have known
people considerably over 70 to deri ve the
greatest benefit from a thorough change
in diet. It seems to rejuvenate them.
Of course in old age care should be taken
that the body is not subjected to rapid
changes of temperature. When tho nervous power is decreasing as the result
of age and the system is losing its power
of combating cold and strain upon its
energy, a stimulating diet invigorates
and is conducive to maintaining constitutional Stamina better than any other.
Any natural death but from old age
and general decay is an accidental death
���that is, it is due to causes which might,
and even perhaps could, have been entirely avoided and remedied in earlier
years.���Gentleman's Magazine.
Most Young Meu Are Afraid of Bablea.
"The average young l.ian," said a
traveler, "has no great fondness for
young children. I don't know bow
many times I have heard a mother who
was carrying a little child, and who had
halted in the aisle of a railroad car say,
referring to the vacant seat and addressing the young man by the window,
'Is this seat taken?' And I don't know
how many times 1 have seen the young
man's face lengthen as be answered politely, 'No.' The mother takes the seat
Hnd the young man begins to grow restless. He reads tho paper still, but he
keeps his eye on the baby, and you may
be sure the baby has its eye on him���a
beaming, good natural eye it is, too���and
the young man finds it not the easiest
thing in the world to appear wholly unconstrained with attention thus drawn
to him, but he makes a bluff at it and
does pretty well until tbe infant moistens one chubby fist in its mouth and
reaches out to make a print of it on the
lapel of the young man's coat. Then
tbe young man rises. 'Madam,' he
says, 'let me givo you this Beat,' and he
steps out into tbe aisle. And ho doesn't
look for another Beat in that car. Ho
makes a bee line for the smoker."���New
York Sun.
The Food We F.na.
Hardly a day passes tbat we do not receive some shock*, that wo aro not asked
to give up some favorite dish around
which clusters a host of tender early
memories, and after eating of which we
have for 20 years on end felt ourselves
grow fat and childlike and untlyspeptic.
But the modern hygiene says it must go,
and if we retain it on our list we do it iu
an anxious and guilty mood sure of itself to beget internal trouble.
Seemingly simple things like dry toast,
oatmeal and apples we have heard forbidden of late as hard to take care of,
and bananas, or, for example, the delicious, but as we supposed deadly, fried
bacon cried up as food for babes and
sucklings. This is puzzling���it goes
against personal experience, it upsets all
our dietary plans and pleasures, and it
awakens the shrewd suspicion that mere
fashion is at thu bottom of the change.

Cold Air In Plaee of lee.
I predict that 10 years from now tbe
familiar ico wagon will be a novelty upon tbe streets of a city, so general will
have been the adoption of arlit.'cial-rB-
frigeration. For a long time brewers,
pork packers and storage meu have been
independent of the ice crop, and the introduction of the cold air pipe lines down
town has supplanted the use of ice in ho-
t'ds, restaurants and barrooms except
wherein it is desired to make a displnv
of tbe crystal commodity, Intimetl.e
distribution of cold air will be as general
in cities as is gas or water, nnd the system will be perfected whereby the refrigerating gas necessary for attachment
to a family refrigerator will bo delivered
in a tank just like carbonated water is
to the soda fountains, once a month or
as required.���St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Duellnir In France.
Until within a few years dueling in
France was bo common that 5,000 such
encounters were fought every year. The
vast majority of these occurred in the
army, but in 181K) M. de Freyiiuet, the
minister of war, discouraged the practice and rendered it optional under oir-
cuinsiuncrs in which it hud been considered imperative. Among civilians, however, the game goes merrily on, being
chiefly sustained by angry politicians or
excited journalists. It was calculated
in 18H6 that since 1870 847 duels bad
been fought in France outside the army.
In only nine instances were any of the
combatants disabled, while 98 per ceut
of those engaged left the field unscathed.

The English marriage service was the
subject of conversation. Lowe said in
his dashing way tbat it was full of nonsense. "Why," he exclaimed, turning
to bis wife, "it made me say 'with ail
my worldly goods I thee endow,' when I
had no worldly goods wherewith to endow you."
"Ah, Robert," she replied, "but there
were your brains!"
"Well," he said, "all the world knows
that I did not endow you with them."���

Finally Awarded.
Victokta, Dec. 5.���[Special]���The Board
of Trade this afternoon endorsed the amalgamation of the provincial pilotage authorities and passed a resolution urging tho Government to take the matter in hand if satisfactory arrangements oannot otherwise, be
made.
The contracts for the construction of the
new parliament buildings were awarded today, six out of seven of the lowest tenderers
for the several branches of the work being
Victorians and the seventh a Vancouverite.
The aggregate amount will be well within
the legislative appropriation for the work.
The names of the successful firms are: For

work, Richard Drake; coppersmith's work,
W. H. Perry; plumber's work, H. T. Flett;

The steamer Viotoria to-day brings word
of terrific storms on the Japanese coast.
On November 10th a small steamer returning from Hierata to Mutsu was wrecked in
lower Shishido lake, the cargo ahifting and
causing the vessel to founder in five fathoms
of waUr. Thirty-five out of sixty-four passengers were saved. A prosecution has
been commenced against the engineer for
culpable negligence in tbe stowage of cargo,
which caused the disaster.
Their Opinion of It,
Washington, Deo. 5.���Senator Sherman,
Republican, Ohio, when asked his opinion
of the President's message, declined to talk
about it at all, saying that he had not been
able to pay close attention to its reading and
did not care to discuss a subject upon which
he could not talk intelligently.
Mr. Mitchell, Republican, Oregon, observed that the message in its foreign policy
and with special reference to Hawaii, waa
simply indefensible. "Its endorsement of tbe
tariff," continued Mr. Mitchell, "is the
endorsement of that Which strikes a death
blow to every industry of the Pacifio
coast."
Speaking for the Populist party, Mr.
Peffer, Populist, Kansas, said: "Tbe me-s-
age fulfils a prediction I made during the
reoent debate on the ailver question, and
that was tbat there would be no hope for
the financial legislation at this session of
Congress. Be} oud that simple statement I
don't know of a single thing in tbe message
that is worth talking about."
The views of Mr. Voorhees, of Indiana,
were naturally antagonistic to those of the
apoatle of Populism. "It is a strong, able
document," aaid tbe chairman of the finance
committee. "Of course, I have not examined it critically, and cannot speak with
any particularity. I believe it will be well
reoeived by the country."
Mr. Stewart, Republican, Nevada, one of
the most ardent free silver men, summarised
his opinion in this one sentence : " It ia in
favor of the gold standard and bonds, with
authority lodged in the President to negotiate with England, and make that system
permanent."
Mr. McGuire, Democrat, California, one
of the leading lights in the House from the
Pacifio coast, read the message thoroughly,
and, oommenting upon it, said : " I regard
it as an unusually good stale paper. The
treatment of lhe Chineae question is fully
satisfactory. The treatment of the Hawaiian
question is not as full as we would like to
have it, but the suggestion that there will
be a speoial message on that question, with
the papers bearing upon it, in a few days,
juttifiss its brevity in this message. Ths
treatment of the tariff question is full and
statesman-like and quite satisfactory to
those who believe in the Chicago platform."
A Destructive Fire.
Rome, N.Y., Deo. 5.���The New JTork
Locomotive and Machine Works, of this
oity, took fire at 8 o'olock last evening, and
most of the buildings were destroyed. A
waterworks main burst during the progress
of the fire, reducing the pressure from
eighty to fifteen pounds, and two ateam tire
engines were unable to cope with the flames.
The property was valued at {600,000 and
was insured for about $300,000.
A Championship "Hassle."
Cincinnati, Ohio, Dec. 5.���Evan Lewis,
"the strangler," the champion catch-as-
oatch-oan wrestler of the world, has accepted the challenge of Charley Whittmore,
champion Gneco-Roman wrestler of the
world to wrestle for the Cra-co-Roman
championship, and fixes February 3rd next
as the date of the matoh. Cincinnati will
likely be the place of meeting.

called for and the assistance of a disinterested expert be procured in the adjudication
of the beet design. Copies will be sent to
the oity oouncils of Victoria, Vanoouver,
Nanaimo and Westminster. The resolution
was the result of a biased award proved to
have been made by the Victoria School
Board in its selection of a design in a late
school building competition. Mr. J. J.
Honeyman, a leading architect of this city
was one of those called upon to form the
council during the ensuing year. Mr. R. P.

Responsibility Disclaimed.
New York, Dec. 5.���In an interview
Monsignor Farley, vicar-general of the diocese of New York and principal adviser of
Archbishop Corrigan replied to the strictures of Bishop Doane on Amerioan schools
and denied all responsibility for the Spel-
lisbey school bill whioh is to be sent to the
legislature in January. This bill will ask
the state for money in aid of parochial
schools. It originated with the editor of a
Catholic paper, who drew it up and presented it to the public for consideration
without consulting the bishop and clergy,
who alone have jurisdiction in such a matter. "The officials of this diocese," said
Monsignor Farley, "have never seen
this bill, and have not been asked
to sign a petition , in its favor.
They deoline any responsiblity for it, sinoe
it has been gotten up by irresponsible
parties. We have heard that a petition baa
been prepared and aent to the nine hundred
parishes in this state, to be signed by the
priests and people. This is simply irregular,
and no notice should be taken of it unless
the bishops give their consent." Monsignor
Farley scored Bishop Doane for his statement that the Catholic church was on trial
in this country, and refused to believe that
the publio school system would fall to pieces
if state aid were not given to church schools.
"Three fourths of the American Catholics
were borne on American soil," he said,
"and did their shire in the civil war and
they denied the bishop or any other power
outside the constituted courts any right to
try them."

To Help the Rebels.
Niw York, Dec. 5.���A Herald cable
from Montevideo says:���It is said in Rio
that Mello sailed for Santos with the intention of lending aid to the rebel forces in Rio
Grande do Sul. The insurgents left at Rio
Bay have fortified Caheas Island with the
guns and ammunition whioh they had time
to take off tht Javary before the sank.
The Hawaiian Polioy Critised.
Washington, Dec. 5.���The Senate's brief
session of two hours to-day was consumed
by a speech from Mr. Dolph, Republican,
Oregon, adverse to the administration policy
on the subject of the Hawaiian islands.
Hhe intimated that the policy was
the result of a desire on the part
of the present administration to discredit the action and policy of its
predecessor, and expressed the desire that
Mr. Cleveland had been little more explicit
as to how he proposed to undo ' he alleged
wromr and to restore the former status. He
assumed, however, that something more
than moral suasion waB to be used,
and he declared that no grealer crime
against civilization could be committed than
the restoration of a dissipated and corrupt
Queen. Even a foreign government would
be justified in interfering to preserve
the existing government of the islands.
He endorsed the declaration of Mr. John A.
Casson, made in a newspaper interview,
that the force to overthrow the present government of the Islands would be worse than
conspiracy, and would resemble asaussina-
tion. A resolution calling on the President for oopies of the instructions given
to the United States ministers and naval
officers on the subject of Hawaii, since 1891
was offered by Mr. Hoar, Republican,
Mass., and went over without aotion, Mr.
Sherman, Republican, Ohio, suggesting that
it should not be acted on in the absence of
the chairman ot the committee on foreign
relations.
It's Very Likely.
San Francisco, Deo. 5.���The United
States revenue outter Corwin sailed at 2
o'clock this morning. Her destination is
not made public, but it is believed that she
carries important despatches from Washington to Minister Willis and Admiral Irwin, at Honolulu.
The general belief is that the cutter is on
her way to the islands, all circumstances
pointing to the fact that she was coaled and
provisioned for a leng trip. Smuggling
operations in the north have become so extensive of late that it is justly possible that
the Corwin is going after illegal opium traffickers. From the time it was made knov.u
that the Corwin was to leave, a close watch
was kept on the vessel to asoertain if any
strange persons went on board. None were
discovered, and if a secret messenger has
been sent he was kept well under cover
while the vessel was at the dock. The arrival of the Corwin in Honolulu at a time
when the steamers have left there will be
beyond doub', and will oause some anxiety
until the state of affairs is learned. Although various places were visited along
the water front, it was learned that none of
the crew of the vessel had been ashore for
the last three days. The precautions taken
to prevent the men from communicating
anything that they might hear on board
were complete.

Barlow Brothers' Mammoth Minstrels.
Barlow Brothers' Mammoth Minstrels will
appear at the Nanaimo Opera House, on
Thursday, December 7th. This refined
oompany of merry minstrel monarchs needs
no introduction to the lovers of refined minstrelsy in this city. Both from the point
of view of numerical strength and artistic
ability, this is the strongest minstrel company that the patrons of the Nanaimo Opera
House have had an opportunity of witnessing.
The oompany in its entirety numbers over
thirty people. A number of specialists have
been engaged in Europe, and are said to
present something entirely different from
anything ever seen here. Among the principal members may be mentioned Billy Barlow, James Barlow, Howard Powers, "Sco-
field," the brothers Kennard, whose sensational acrobatic feats are said to be more
than marvellous. Special attention has
been paid to the vocal department; this
numbers eight carefully selected voices.
The sale of seats is now in progress. Seats
may be reserved in advance without extra
charge at Pimbury k Co's.
A Successful Entertainment.
A full house greeted Miss Sara Lord
Bailey at the Y.M.C.A. rooms last evening.
Miss Bailey's selections without exception
were good and showed ber to be a finished
and clever reciter. " Life for Life,"
"Prompt Obedience" and "Experience of a
Genius" were notably excellent, the last
being voted the best of the evening. The
vocal solos by Mrs. Jamieson and Mrs.
Davidson, "Golden Years" and "Bid Me
Discourse," were well appreciated, while
the piano solos, "Don Pasquinade" and
"Gaiete de Ca-ur," by Miss Watson, were
cleverly and tastefully played. ���

The Latest From Honolulu.
Port Townsend, Dec. 5.���American
barkentine Kilchikat, ,R. D. Culer, iu the
lumber carrying trade with the Sandwich
islands arrived from Honolulu last night,
bringing the latest advices, having sailed
four days after the steamer Almea. Two
nights before the Kilokikat sailed, on the
19ih, troops were ordered out under arms
on account of the rumors floating about of a
possible attempt being made to take the
palace. The source of the rumor could not
be learned, although the Queen was in the
oity and at home in the palaoe at the time.
Every possible precaution was taken, such
as putting on reserves in order to be ready
at instant oall, and suspending all shore
liberty to the crews of tne United States
steamers Adams and Philadelphia. Nothing, however, had occurred up to sailing
date, 18th November. No coneisi expression of opinion was procurable as the people
are divided in their views into three partus:
Those favoring annexation, others favoring
restoration, and the last wanting a United
States protectorate with the Queen on the
throne. Tha initial policy adopted at the
time of the overthrow is being adhered to
except by a few who are disgruntled at not
receiving offioe under the provisional
Government, and have now become fierce
Royalists,

j "1 taw nothing tne matter with him
i when we were conversing just now," replied Laura; "he manifested a most
kind interest in me."
"I trust you did not find him Intrusive. He had good reason for expressing
an interest in you."
"A special reason t May I know itt"
Willmore gazed into the deep blue
���yes raised so ingenuously to his own,
and his breath came quickly as he answer* 1 with suppressed emotion :
"He is my best friend."
Laura Kingdon was no coquette: lhe
���he did not affect to misunderstand him,
A wave of colour richer than the sunset
swept over her sweet face, like a Madonna's in its modest loveliness, and when
it faded there was trouble creasing
the smooth brow. Insensible, indeed,
must that man have been who did not
read in those signs a favourable augury
for his dearest hopes. All measures of
prudence were discarded. Lord Will-
more utterly forgot his father and
mother, all consideration of friends and
kindred; he waited not for Cecil Chester's
report, but flinging to the winds his
mentor's recent earnest counsel, poured
forth his adoration then and there. He
told how her silent sweetness had fascinated him from the first, how ever-
present she had been in his thoughts
and in his dreams, how far she excelled
all the women of this world, how restlessly he always longed for their next meeting, and how the time had come when
his happiness demanded that he should
see before him a prospect of meeting to
part nevermore.
In all that he said there was no mention of marriage, no direct proposal that
she should be his wife. But Laura
Kingdon either did not notice this, or she
was supremely indifferent to the omission.
She said simply:
"You make me very happy, I may
tell Muriel, may I not?"
Lord Willmore had been quiet prepared to scandalize his family by a mesalliance, but his passion did not blind
him to a sense of his social importance,
and he certainly had looked for the raising of such obstacles as a girl iu the dependent position of Laura Kingdon
might be expected to appreciate as standing between her and marriage with a
nobleman; and further, he had anticipated that this virtuous girl (as he fully
believed her to be) would at once detect
the hollowness of professions of love in
which the sacred name of wife was never
spoken.
But Laura's sentiment was one of such
unworldly, simple reciprocation that she
did not attempt to trine with love, and
insult her lover by the suggestion that
sordid and class interests could come
between them; nor did she dream that,
with a passion so true, to which her
soul freely responded, could be joined a
reckless selfishness, a brutal design to
destroy all that waa worthy of being
loved.
Perhaps had he met her in her parents'
home, instead of in a house that he had
entered upon a somewhat equivocal footing, he might have understood her
purity of mind. Unhappily, the influence
of his associates and the feverish experiences of his youth had led him to distrust all women, aud, where there was
any doubt betwixt good and evil, to assume the worst as a safeguard against
the terrible danger known aa "being
made a fool of."
He drew her into the shadow of the
atephauotis, and. as he kissed again and
again the fair forehead that stooped towards hia breast, he blessed his happy
stars that had given him so rich a prize
without the exaction of a serious sacrifice. -"
CHAPTER IV.
love's TALUK.
The sun had set, and the gray veil of
twilight covered the closing flower-
Lord Willmore and Laura Kingdon sat
together by the window, engrossed in
tbat tender converse which delights in
the gloaming,
She told him all of herself that she had
to tell: of her parents' early death, and
the necessity which had prompted her to
accept the position of companion; of her
several experiences in that capacity, and
the accident which had made her t'.te
bosom friend of Muriel O'Connor. She
told him of hor one relation, a younger
sister, dear to her as flesh and blood
could be, who was married to a sea-captain, now expected home from a long
voyage. To that sister she was going on
the morrow, to help her prepare for the
reception of her husband, and to welcome him home. She described a humble
little cottage in the unfashionable locality of Wapping, where Dorothy Dundas
awaited the return of her errant spouse.
"Wappiug does uot sound nice," said
Laura Uepreoatingly; "but the house is
really pretty and snug, and so nicely
situated ou the bank of the river. It is
most interesting to watch the craft passing up and down, and we don't notice
the mud when the tide is in. If you
would care to come to such an out-of-the-
way place, I should be so very glad to
introduce you to my sister and her good
husband. He is a rough sailor, butOI
so good and true-hearted, and he loves
Dorothy very fondly."
She gave Willmore the address, aod
told him how he could reach the place;
and as she was to remain at/ Wapping
for a few days, he readily agreed to visit
her there, for at the flood of his passion
a day's absence seemed unendurable.
They had scarcely observed how dark
the room had grown, when the door
opened to admit a stream of light from
the hall, and another visitor.
Laura and Willmore, enveloped In
shadow, were not noticed by the newcomer, who, standing in the radiance of
the hall-lamp, couldhiniuolf be very distinctly seen by them. He was a gracefully built young man of middle height,
clad in evening dress, with a cape-coat
flung*  carelessly'  across his  shoulders.
Hi.- face was partially concealed by the
shadow of his opera-hat, which he had
not removed. That Laura should hastily
wil.idraw her hand from Lord Willmore's caress was not unnatural, but
the lover subsequently asked himself
Whether the action wan not rather due
to recognition of tin* visitor than to the
mere intrusion upon their conference,
The young man, evidently supposing
the room to be unoccupied, began to
rate the servant souiio'lv:
"What's this V" No ikrhtsT All gone to
bed? Or not up yet? Come, light up,
light up, you lazy baggagel Is this a
room to show me into? Where's your
mistress? Don't know? Why the devil
don't you know? Light the gas, idiot,
and don't talk to me in the dark I Saucy
bundles of rubbish you servants arel
Don't have so much to say I"
The gas was lighted, nnd the servant
withdrew. The new comer found himself face to face with Laura Kingdon
and Lord Willmore.
"Hallo!" lie said, nodding to the lady
with insolent familiarity, 'Tiallo!"
"Good-evening, Mr. Kestrel; have you
called to see Miss O'Connor?"
"Called to see you, my dear; want
word with you par-ticuler-lar-lully.
Who's your friend?   'Duce me."
Mr. Kestrel had evidently dined. Lord
Willmore surveyed him witti disgust,
and frowned heavily as he noted that
Laura was trembling and appeared to
be strangely embarrassed,
"Who is this inanV"   lie asked.
Without waiting Cor Laura's introduction, the other replied with emphasis:
"Tliis geu'leman is RiilrJli Kestrel���the
Ralph Kestrel���Sir!   Who are you?"
"This is Lord Willmore," said Laura,
"a friend of Miss O'Connor's."
"What, another of em! A lord, eh?
My Lord Tomnoddy, glad to make your
acquaintance."
There was romething ineffably offensive to Lord Willmore in the intrusive
and drunken familiarity of thia numskull, and the Sneering suggestivoiiess of
the reference to Muriel O'Counor was
not lost uporj him. 'lhe thought flashed
through his mind that Chester must be
right, that his own first impressions
were correct, and this dainty little home
was the web of a human spidi r. And if
that were the case, what of Laura Kingdon, the intimate of an adventuress?
How could it be possible that she should
touch pitch and not be defiled? She
trembled in the presence of this intoxicated blackguard; she was palpably ill
at ease; there was most clearly an understanding between them, and he did
not hesitate to class it as blameworthy.
But if Laura Kingdon had so far lost
his good opinion, how much more was
he confirmed iu his evil surmises when,
having treated Mr. Kestrel to the
haughtiest of snubs, he (Willmore) invited her to withdraw with him, and
Was met with a request, conveyed in
agitated accents, that he himself would
withdraw, and leave her in privacy '"nth
this swaggering debauchee!
He was too much shocked and amazed
to offer the least opposition. With a
cold bow, the significance of which was
lost unon Laura Kinsrdon, he passed out
into the garden in silence.
But, once shrouded by the friendly
gloom of the bushes, he paced along
furiously, muttering between his teeth,
and frequently exclaiming aloud in passionate resentment.
Eage grew upon him as he revolved
the matter: rage at his own folly in loving such a creature; rage against her for
her saintlike face, her innocent voice and
manner, for the presumed corruption of
her life, and, above all, tor the affront
she had put upon him in preferring the
society of such a disgusting cad as this
Ralph" Kestrel.
His first impulse waa to quit the house
at once, and follow out his friend's advice to the letter. Their hostess had deserted them immediately after dinner
without explanation, and making but the
lightest of apologies,
Muriel's conduct was equally unaccountable. Had sh6considerately intended to leave him to asoliiu iu a deux, win
had sho not taken charge of (.Veil dies
ter, who would have been very much il
the way had he not taken hfmaelf ofi
Where, by the bye, was Chester*; ji<
had disappeared into the shrubbery.
Willmore groped his way thither, aii
called quietly for his friend. In th'
Utter stillness of the fallen night hi
voioe must have been heard all owi
the garden, but no reply came
and Wilimore concluded that Oheste
had left the house. 1-Vrhaps th.
best course would be to follow him
He sought the door with that in
tention, but on reflection there wai
something not only gauche but ridicu
loun in this running away, withou'
leave taking, of two guests wuo had eat.-.
a nearly dinner, ju.u because thehoste:*
was detained from them by some pro
bably unavoidable circumstance. Wl_
more could not run the risk of loolriiu
ill-mannered ami ibsr.rd. If Chester hat
gone, so much nie :,;'*re reason that In
should remain to carry out the formui
' ities of good Weeding.
This, he told ill ..self, held him back
from rushing from the place; but h<
was not quite candid with himself in the
matter. Love held him then- by:strong
er chains than etiquette. His feeling to
wards Laura flew to all points, like r,
weather-vane iu a veering wind. Now
he n.iled her for her frailty, now he
pitied her helplessness; now lie loatiieo
her for that he dared not formulate, yet
loved her throughout: it was inevitable.
The thought did enter his heart that ap
pearances might Wrong her, but ouly to
Le scouted by gusts of cynicism "and
Worldly self conceit. Upon ono thing
did he congratulate himself over aim
over again; he had not been dishonourer
by asking her to be his Wife. Lord Will
more, in common with most men of his
class, had a great respect for the sacred-
ness of the lharriage tie, and he conceived it to be the highest honour that a
man could tender to a woman.   Many a

"Animals do not Reason." '
If any man thinks that animals do not
reason we wish he could see what we have
seen times without number, namely, the
family cat turned out of the dining room
into the kitchen and the door shut between.
In about one minute she will go up the back
stairs to the second floor, come down the
front stairs and enter the front door of the
dioing room, usually left open.
All that has ever been written from the
beginning of the world to this day to show
that animals are governed by instinct and
not by reason is upset by this intelligent
action of our family cat.
When you visit Vancouver do not forget
to register at the Delmonico. Knerson
leads all others as a caterer. 8-U tf
