Lisbon, Dec. 14.���The British steamship
Nile, which sailed from Pernambuco, Brazil,
on December 5th, arrived here to day. She
was boarded ot once by the United r/ress
correspondent, who obtained this news
from the officers and mail advices just before the Nile sailed: The government had
the fifteen insurgent officers and the crew of
Anarchists Despondent.

day Herman and Weisenthal, two speakers
at laat night's meeting, were arrested and
condemned to three months' imprisonment
for anarchistic utterances of two months ago.
London, Dec. 14.���Joseph Chamberlain,
leader of the Liberal Unionists, spoke at
Braintree this evening. Home t*ule was the
sole aim of th"! Government, he said, and
British legislation was merely a counter
with which Mr. Giadstnue hoped to win the
game. Tho Governmeut did sot mean that
any British bills should pass. These bills
were put in the window merely for show
and no body should be sanguine enuugh to
expect, if he should enter the shop, to obtain any of them. The promoters of the
Britiah Councils' bill had deliberately overloaded their vessel with the intention of
BinkiDg it. The Government had found it
good policy to keep bills in smpense and
thus supply a motive for quarrelling with
the House of Lords.

independent Conservative member for the
northeaBt division of Kent, asked the Government whether anarohisla expelled from
France will be allowed to come to England,
if they could not lawfully be prevented,
and would the Government bring in a
measure to save the country from becoming
a refuge for avowed assassins? Mi. Asquith
replied that the existing laws did not provide for the prevention of the ' nding in
England of anarchists, and the ' ./.ci^i.e'it
was not prepared to alter the la* k.

London, Deo. 15.���The Lancet to-day
aays: " The influenza iB increasing in
virulence in Great Britain. It shows a
speoial tendency to attack the pharynx and
larnyx, theae remaining affected after the
other symptoms have passed off. There is a

Dublin correspondent of lhe Central Newt
says*���'The polios officials have uuravelled
a series of atrocious dynamite plots. It is
expected that these plots will be partly disclosed at the trial of Meara and Nolan."
The Standard on Hawaiian Matters.
London, Dec. 14.���The Evening Standard,
Conservative, Bays editorially to-day of the
situation in Hawaii: "The knot of merchants, speculators and office seekers who
planned the revolution in Hawaii naturally
are furious at Mr. Cleveland for declining to
accept the islands as the result of a nefarious intrigue by American citizens. No
other decision couid have beeu expected
from au honest and honorable man. The
group of adventurers holding the government are drfinn . but it can hardly be supposed ihat they contemplate resistance to
any warship, Americau or other, whioh may
be sent there. Doubtless an Amerioan
cruiser will soon be on the scene. The
British cm ise r Champion is now at Hawaii
waiting developements."
Tho New Arohbishop of Armagh.

Robert Samuel Cregg, D.D., Bishop of the

gave Count von Caprivi a long audience
to-day and discussed with him the political
situation, notably as regardB the recent outbreaks of the smirch ists. The Chancellor
said that he was opposed to imperial
measures against anarchists. He thought
that the present German laws were sufficient
to accomplish the punishment of anarchist
crimes The emperor urged that there was
need of punishing with exceptional severity
the agitators who in the press and at public
meetings incited men to crime. The emperor
congratulated the chancellor on his victory
in the Reichstag yesterday.
Sudden Death.
Montreal, Dec. 14.���Mr. Geo. Wilson, a
well-known boot and shoe merchant, died
suddenly last evening at his store.
For a Double Murder.
Brockville, Out., Dec. 14.���Charles J.
Lukey was hanged here this morning for the
murder of his father and stepmother in their
home at New Bliss, near Brockville, on
October 8ih, 1892. The weapon used was

Star from London Bays: The Right Hon.
Sir John Lubbock, Bart., F.R.S., M.P. for
London University, and president of the
City of London branch of the Imperial
Federation League, has issued a circular

Empire.
Premier Peters Ahead.
Cuarlottetown, P. E. I. Deo. 14.���The
Provincial general elections resulted in a
sweeping Liberal victory. The returns are
incomplete, but the Government waa probably sustained by from nine to ten majority,
Premier Peters and bis colleagues were
largely ahead. In Charlottetown Rogers
and Prowse turn-id the Conservative majority of 200 at last election to a Liberal majority of 300. Bentley, the leader of the
Opposition, was probably beaten as well as
other leading Conservatives.
Should be Investigated.
Toronto, Dec. 14.���The following special
cable appears in this morning's Globe: Dr.
Barnardo is sending vigorous proteats to the
press against the reports cabled from Canada
and appearing in the Canadian press reflecting on the boys sent out from his home.
He deals specially with the recent statement iu a Toronto paper alleging that a
murder in Manitoba had been committed by
a Barnardo boy. The boy concerned never
was ao inmate of any of the Barnadohomes.
The doctor reports that less tban two per
cent, of his young emigrants have proved a
failure and only a fraction of one per cent,
have joined the vicious criminal population
of Canada. The Canadian Gazette, in an
editorial urges that the Government ought
to take steps to thoroughly inveatigate the
whole question and definitely ascertain
whether the charges brought against this
class of emigrants are well founded.
Thurston Going to Hawaii.
San Fkani'Iscu, Due 14. ��� Hawaiian
Minister Thurston has engaged passage on
the steamer Alameda, Bailing for Honolulu
at 2 p. m. to-morrow.
A Hut t lo in the Sierra Madros.
Deminu, N. M.| Dec. 13. A courier
reached Las Palomas late last night bringing
news Irom below to General Hernandezein
command of the Mexican troops, who haB
been at Pulou.as for some days, making an
official investigation of the trouble on the
border. The courier reports a battle fought
last Friday in the Sierra Madres, near
L'olnia Juarez, between the revolutionists
under Santa Ana Peroz, and six hundred
troops. After making his report to General
Hernandez and the custom house officials,
the courier returned with despatches and
General Hernandez at once left for the scenn
with the soldiers stationed at Palomas. The
customs house officials admit the report to
be correct, but they refuse all information aud
place under arrest all who attempt to talk
upon the subject. This same course is being
pursued by officials in all towns near the
scene of battle, and the news is being effectually suppressed. Twenty-five rebels were
killed and over 200 soldiers. The rebels
were attacked in the mountains, where they
have been encamped since the Palomas raid,
but it is believed that the troops ran upon
them unexpectedly while bunting for the
camp. The battle began at 11 o'clock in
the morning, and lasted for several hours.
The troops retreated in disorder. The
rebels fought from ambush. Several officers
are reported killed. Details of this affray
will never be permitted 'o reach the outside
world as the authorities have so intimidated
the people that none of them will talk. The
scene of the battle is about 200 miles south
of tbis point, in the mounninous country,
offering to the rebels a safe retreat.
the marines are supposed to be still alive.
The publication of Admiral Mello's manifesto
has caused the troops in the province of
Pernambuco to revolt. At B*hia and
other ports, the men on the Nile say the
revolution grows in favor. The insurgents
have been strengthened greatly by the accession of Admiral De Gama and his friends.
A reign of terror is said to dominate Rio
Janeiro. More than a thousand meD of
different nationalities are missing in the
city. Some of them are supposed to be in
jail, others are said to have been executed.
Many foreigners are expected to have beeu
seized and impresstd iuto the military service of the Government. More of them
have been entered under false names and
therefore when consuls begin to inquire after
them, no trace of them can be found. All
tbe cities on the seaboard are infested
with spies. Every body feais to speak
openly against the government. Two of
preaident. Peixtoto's steam launches from
the military school, say the officers of the
Nile, stop all vessels entering Rio harbor,
that the president's men may examine the
passengers and crews. A general revolt of
the troops against the government was ex*
pected to take place on December 15'h.
London, Dec. 14.���The Lisbon correspondent of the United Press obtained to-day
a few additional facts as to the state of
affairs in Brazil on December 5!h, when the
steamehip Nile sailed General Gomerin
Doisara Ariva, the insurgent general, was
reported then to be marching northward
from Rio Grande do Sul with 5,000 men,
whom he had gathered from the cattle
ranches. His objective point is Rio Janeiro.
He waB expected to arrive in the neighborhood of the city abou*. the middle of this
month. Along the coast most persons
thought that an important engagement
would take place by December 15th.
U. S. Commerce WIU be Protected.
Rio Janeiro, Dec, 14.���T. L. Thompson,
United States minister to Brazil, announces
that whatever other nations may do, tbe
United States will protwet its commerce
frohi all encroachment* of the insurgent's
naval vessels. The withdrawing of tbe protection formerly afforded to merchantmen
by war vessels at this port is construed as
an attempt covertly to aid the insurgents in
their efforts to restore the monarchy. The
United I'rees correspondent has found no
trace of many of the hardships which have
been reported by persons in Rio since the
insurgent fleet anchored in the harbor. Provisions are abundant. The streets are kept
clean, and order is maintained without any
show of effort. The government has designated a new landing for the launches of
foreign warships, in the Sande district on
tbe north side of the city and near Morro do
Gamboa
More about Vaillant.
Paris, Dec. 14���A man named Sordan
was arrested this afternoon in the anteroom of the Palais Bourbon for expounding
anarchist theories, in company with another man, who escaped. A number of
anarchist documents were found in Sordan's
pockets. Several foreign anarchists were
expelled_from France to-day.
While Vaillant was in America he associated with an anarchist named Graillat,
afterwards lynched there. Vaillant last
week visited Abbe Lemiere, who was
among the deputies injured by the explosion of Vaillant's bomb. Abbe Lemiere
took Vaillant's name and address and gave
him a few francs. Vaillant almost admits
that he drew lots with other anarchists to
see who should undertake the murderous
work. Ten anarchists were with him in the
gallery. They are in custody. All have
spent a portion of their lives in England,
showing that the anarchists are affiliated
together and eventually will be found to be
subsidized by patrons who have brem generally regarded as apostles of less militant
doctrines.
In the Cau to of Science.
Columbus, Ohio, Deo. 14. ��� Members
elect "f tho Ohio General Assembly have received c pies of a circular letter from Dr. J.
S. Pyle, of Canton, Ohio, urging the enactment of a law appropriating condemned
criminals for medical researches. He
would have them placed under the influence
of opiates in order that t heir brains may be
laid bare to study and examination in living
form by physiologists and then painlessly
killed by opiates.
Smokeless Powder in the U. S. Army.
Washington, Dec. 14���The contract for
furnishing the first smokeless powder to be
used by the United States army, has been
awarded to the Leonard Powder Company,
and the California Powder Works, each to
furnish 5.000 pounds. The division of the
10,000 pounds bid for into the two lots was
made in order to test the relative merits of
the powders.   Deliveries will begin in thirty
days. 	
The Prendergast Trial.
Chicago, Deo. 14.���In the Prendergast
trial today Miss Sophia Harrison was witness. Her testimony was given with great
effort. Mr. Trude interrogated her a
briefly as possible in order to obtain from
ber the story of the killing of her father, ao
far as she could relate the circumstances,
from personal knowledge. Several times
during her testimony Miss Harrison faltered
and was on the verge of a breakdown. Miss
Harrison's evidence was given the closest
attention, and at the conclusion the defence
declined to cross-examine her. _���

NANAIMO, B. C, FRIDAY, DECEMBER 15, 1893.
GOTHAM GLEANINGS.
Resident Brazilians Want Redress Of
Those Who Fitted Out Ships For
Peixoto.
New York, Dec, 14.���The Herald says:
Certain prominent and wealthy Brazilians
who reside in or near this city and favor
the cause represented by Mello in the
present combat in the South American Republic have associated themselves together
for the purpose of obtaining redress against
the persons who have fitted out warships in
this port and dispatched the same to Brazil
in the interests of President Peixoto. This
syndicate of Brazilians also propose to restrain if possible the armament of further
ships for this purpose in the ports of the
United Statea. They assert that the United
States Government in suffering such ships
to be fitted out here has violated the law of
nations aud rendered itself liable to enorm
ous damages. This abuse of neutral power
allowing interested individuals to prepare a
In.-1 ili- fleet in its own waters is claimed to
be unprecedented and the action of the bo
interested parties is asserted to be in viola
tion of the statutes. It was impossible yes
terday to ascertain the names of tbcse
gentlemen, but they are seven in number,
and they will go right to work to test the
soundness of their contention in the courts.
Isaac Agente, a lawyer of high standing and
ability, as well as of a large experience in
the United States courts has been retained
to push the ii nits contemplated.
Ruy Barbos, Admiral Mello's representa
tive on land, telegraphs to the Herald from
Buenos Ayres as follows: "Do not believe
the official Brazilian news assuring you that
Admiral Saldanha de Gama issued a mon
archial manifesto. Remember the similar
report sent you about Admiral Mello follow
ing the placing of the son ot. Count Deu on
the throne of Brazil. It is the same fiction
in both cases."
The Herald's Lima, Peru, cable says: The
British Minister here, Colonel Sir Chas.
Mansfield, while returning from the cricket
field on Tuesday morning was attacked in
the Alameda grounds by a furious cow and
was seriously wounded in the body, throat
and head. He is in the hospital today, receiving the best medical attendance and
nursing they can afford. He was put uuder
tbe influence of chloroform last night and au
operation performed for the purpose of re
moving pieces of the skull which had been
crushed in and were pressing on the brain.
The patient's condition is considered serious.
A special from Mayaville, Ky., Bays: Perhaps a score of persons have become insane
during the religious revivals now sweeping
this state. The most sensational case is that
���of the Rev. A. Simmons, of Mount Olivet,
who became insane while preaching, and
. declared himself to be Christ. The wildeBt
excitement prevailed, aud a number of converts have proclaimed their faith in him.
A special from Omaha, Neb., Bays: Adela
Louise Stowe, a local literary woman, appeared in the district court yesterday aud
asked that her name be changed to Kohus
tamm, alleging that it was more difficult to
achieve fame with a common than an uncommon name. Her prayer was refused on the
grounds that her reasonB were frivolous.
BY WIRE FROM SAN FRANCISCO.
Sealerh Hurrying to Got Away   A Sailor
Stabbod by a Dago.
San Francisco, Dec. 14.���Sealers are
making haste to have all their vessi
cleared before January 1st. The reason for
this is that there is a well-defined fear that
the government is meditating some decided
step in relation to clearing vessels for sealing cruises. It is generally believed that
after New Year's Day n i clearance papers
will be allowed to at a lets.
Jack Welsh, a sailor, was fatally stabbed
by Thomas D. PapadacoB, a Greek candy
peddler, last evening. Papadacos wheu
arrested acknowledged the crime, but
claimed it was done in self defense, Welsh
and several other mm having brutally attacked bim on his way home, knocking him
down and eude.voring to steal his candy.
The dead mau was stabbed in the beart
with a small Midori clasp knife.
The Washington State Capitol.
Olymi'IA, Dec. 14.���[Special]���Up to 4
o'clock this afternoon seventy-five capitol
building plans bad been filed, with a promise
of no less than 100 to examine. One can
form an idea of the formidable amount of
work before the commission for the next
thirty days.
K. of P. Grand Lodge.
Olymi'IA, Dec. 14.���[Special]���Grand
Chancellor Ronald, Knights of Pythias, in a
letter to J. C. Rathbun, district deputy,
has expressed a desire that the next meeting
of the Grand Lodge be held in this city.
Capital lodge has appointed a committee to
raise funds for the entertainment of delegates, which committee will reported on
Thursday next, when it will beasoertainedif
Olympia can secure the meeting.
Nancy Hanks Rotires.
Richmond, Iud., Dec. 14 ���For the first
time Bince, aB a three year-old, Bhe broke
the race record for trotters of that ago on
the half-mile track, Nancy Hanks withdraws from the public gaze. She ia already
domiciled at her owner's farm in Massachusetts, and the announc.-ment has been made
that next spring she will be bred to Arion.
The turf has Been the last of her. Her winnings, exclusive of several purses for exhibitions iu 1S91, for which no figures are quoted, reach $61,954.
Indian Sealers Fitting Out.
Port Townsend, Dec. 14.���The Makah
Indians, of Neah bay, are fitting out a fleet
of ten schooners for sealing voyages in the
North Pacific ocean. The vessels are worth
over $20,000, and are owned, officered and
manned by Indian crews. Under the present law, as laid down by the Behring sea
tribunal in Paris recently, the Indians have
a considerable advantage over the white
hunters. FirearmB are strictly prohibited
in hunting seals, and this causes the Indians
to adopt their old custom of hunting with
spears, at which a largo number of the tribe
are adepts. Practical sealers claim that
the Indians will fare much better than
either the English or American sealers.
The fleet will leave in about three weeks,
and meet the herd at the mouth of the Columbia river. They will cruise up along the
const as far as Alaska waters. Then, if it is
deemed advisable, the vessels will return for
fresh provisions and a white navigator and
sail for the Japan coast.

anxious to buy the landlords will be

desiring to sell where three-fourths of the
tenants will not buy the Btate should purohase. The landlords ought to get a fair
price for their property. The cost of the
operation ought not to exceed ��33,000,000
sterling, as estimated in the proposed Bal-
fuur act. This would be a fair settlement
of the question, but we fear it would not
suit the views of the Irish nationalists, one
of whose main objects is confiscation of the
property of the landlords when they get, as
they hope, an Irish parliament legislating
in Dublin. 	
THE PREMIER'S VISIT.
Premier Davie will visit Nanaimo on the
twentieth or twenty-first and will remain
here for a few days, visiting the Poultry
Show and renewing old acquaintances. During his visit he will be pleased to meet business men and others in reference to any
matters affecting this district and coming
within the jurisdiction of the Provincial
Government. We are pleased to note that
the Board of Trade at its meeting yesterday
appointed a committee to meet Mr. Davie
on his arrival here, and present him with an
address. Mr. Davie has always manifested
a willingness to meet the various sections of
the Province on a reasonable basis and to
take into consideration any reasonable requests for the benefit of the community
making them.
SOCIALISTS AND ANARCHISTS.
Socialism in France, und indeed throughout the all Europe, has fallen ioto disgrace
just now, owing to its supposed alliance
with anarchism. Properly understood, there
iB nothing in common between the theory of
socialism and that of anarchism. But as a
matter of fact there is a certain sympathy
between the two parties. Both are working
to change the existing order of society. The
socialists wish to establish a cut-and-dried
system of their own in place of the existing
eystem; the anarchists to tear down and
destroy the existing system, careless of
what may take its place. Both aim at
change���radical, complete and revolutionary
���but that is, in fact, all there is between
them. But popular opinion, never much
disposed to draw nice distinctions, clauses
them all together. The socialists, says public
opinion, are collectivists, that is, men
who hold that all the property of a
nation should be held in common for the
general good, and so are the anarchists-
They are collectivists too io a certain Bense.
Hence the conclusion that the socialists are
anarchists and the anarchists, socialists,
that it is six of one^and a half dozen of the
other. It is in vain that the socialists protest that it is not so. They are Bimply not
believed, They find them��elves in bad
company along with men of infamous character and worse principles, also to a certain
extent share their views, and are classed
accordingly. Hence Le Temps, a leading
French paper, is correctly said to voice
general opinion when it says that the protests of the socialists that they do not espouse the anarchist cause are insincere.
"Collectivists," sayB Le Temps, "generally
do not hamper themselves with scruples as
to legality or moderation." They regard
such outrages, as that committed by the
miscreant Vaillant in the French Chambers
"with complaisance if not sympathy."
There may be and probably there
ia much; truth in this. Party business in
France, like poverty everywhere, makes a
man acquainted with strange bedfellows.
The socialists Bhould clear themselves of all
suspicion of connection or alliance with the
anarchists. The latter appear to be made
up moatly of criminals and desperate characters like Rav&ohol and Vaillant, whose object is murder aud robbery aud the overthrow of society, including both religion
and morals. The socialists have a possible
if not a practicable Bysteni, well thought
out in all its detaiU, and which perhaps
could be established, if the majority thought
fit to establish it, without bloodshed and
crime. The better forms of socialism, too,
are quite consistent wiih the maintenance
of the Christian religion and of Christian
ordinances. But anarchism is simply crime
and the worst forms of immorality and infidelity rampant. If established it would destroy civilization and introduce the
rule of hell upon earth. If need be the
anarchistB must be destroyed as mad dogs
and venomous serpents would be destroyed,
in order to secure the safety of the human
race and all that it holds dear. If the anarchists bring down this fate upon their heads
.they will have themselves aud their own in-
human crimen and execrable theories to
thank for it.
Mr. Balfour, who was Secretary of State
for Ireland in Lord Salisbury's administration, has published a letter on the Iriah land
question. IIih opinion is that a fair solution
of the question can be found through purchase only. Dual ownership haB no element
of finality. The State, he says, ought to
adopt legislation providing that when three-
fourths of   the tenants of  any   estate   are
Our Victoria despatches this morning
announce that tbe Provincial Parliament
has been called to meet on the 18lh of
January next. This will be the last
session of the present parliament. An
election will follow shortly after its dismissal.
It remains, therefore, for every elector to
think over the situation carefully and aee
that fit aud proper pei8ona are elected to
represent them in the next parliament.
Men who go to Victoria for the sole purpose
of ousting the government of the day and
thereby obtain comfortable positions for
themselves and friends regardless of their
fitness for the offices they stek are not the
men to elect as representatives form any
community. There are a few of thote
gentlemen in the present House, who
have made it their business to oppose every
action or measure of the government regardless of merit or reason. These men should
be elected to atay at home in the next contest.

CORRESPONDENCE SOLICITED
Want Corbott Arrested.
St. Louis, Dec. 14.���A special to the
litjittb/ic. from Jacksonville says: It isatated
today that a few anti-fight people here have
perfected arrangements for having Corbett
arrested when he appears here Thursday.
The law aud order Icsgue is very reticent,
but it is alleged that a committee has
already had the necessary legal papers
drawn and will have an officer arrest Corbett when he steps from the train Thursday
morning. Should the pugilist be arrested,
friends will be ready with a writ of habeas
corpus. This would get the matter before
the courts, whioh would suit the sydicate,
for it is sure of a decision in its favor.

Cleveland's message on Hawaiian Affairs-The Flans Arranged���The Message Hold Baok.
Washington, Dec. 14.��� The correspondent of the Baltimore Sun aays: The
president's message on Hawaii will be a
complete review of the whole question. The
president will Bhow that the queen's overthrow and other acts were sanctioned.
Stevens haa received the approval of the
United Statea and he considered it unjustified and unfriendly and must be undone.
The president will probably say Willis was
instructed to first decline formally the proposition of annexation, then announce that
the United States demanded tbat the queen
be restored to power peacefully, but that if
she was unwilling to be seated without tho
assurance of this government that she would
be protected from harm and retained in
the United States, then take no steps but
await instructions from the United
States. The president says the miniater
found the provisional government much
stronger and their power increasing eaoh
day. All conditions were Buch as to prevent the carrying out of his instructions
und now the president haa exhausted the
prerogative ot his office to bring about a
settlement in Hawaii without calling upon
ihe naval force to assist it. There is uo
other resort for the president but to leave
the questiou for further action of Congress.
It is believed the president will not diverge
from Inn present policy. It is certain, however, that he will hardly urge that force be
resorted to.
It ia understood that the president's message on Hawaii will not be sent iuto Congress to day, but will be held back uutil
after the cabinet meeting to-morrow.
A prominent member of the house committee of foreign affairs is authority fur the
statement that the correspondence in the
Hawaiian matter, called for by Congreaa,
will not be sent to lhe capital lu-day.
Without discussion the bill was passed
which Cotchiogs brought in on order from
the committee on rules, setting aside the
time after the second morning hour, beginning to-day, continuing each day thereafter
until concluded, for considering the bills
admitting Arizona and New Mexico to statehood.
The House bill reporting on the Federal
Election Law was reported back favorably
and it waB placed on the calendar. The
Senate joint resolution relieving the employees of the record and pension divisions
of the War Department, injured at the Ford
theatre disaster from operations of the law,
restricting the amount of sick leave with
pav was passed.
No Hawaiian news is now expected before
Monday   next,   unless   perhaps  something
may come by   the Australia   on   Saturday.
Buth   houses of Congress having   called   on
the president to communicate   io them   the
insliuctions given to   Minister   Willis   and
Commissioner Blouut,   it   is   now  officially
announced that a formal reply   is all   ready
for transmission,   but   on   equally   official
authority,   tho   statement   is  made that it |
was not deemed compatible with the  public
interest! to give publicity  to   those   official j
documents in time to have   an unauthorized j
synopsis of their   contents   telegruphed   to
San Francisco by press despatches,   and   ao I
conveyed to Honolulu   by the   steamer Alameda, which, as originally intended,   was lo
have nailed from that pott for the Hawaiian '
Islands to-day, but   has   bein   delayed   till
to-morrow, cuns-quently it is said lhe mess- j
age wm withheld today and as the   Senate!
has adjourned till Monday there iB   no   pro- j
liability of its being   seut  iu   till  that day
unless the president   should   act   upon   the !
House request alone  and   should   lot themi
have the first glance at the papers, which is
extremely unlikely.
'lhere is another reason which has been !
assigned for the delay in transmitting the!
Hawaiian correspondence and which has j
much attention in Congress, where it is
asserted that certain official despatches
assumed to have been wri'ten by Secretary !
Blaine, in correspondence with Minister
Stevens, are missing from the rejords. "They
are instructions to Minister Stevens and his
reply thereto, which was never received,
and are important in the light of subsequent
events. It was not included in the published volume of "Foreign Relations" for 1892
sent to Congress. A very noticeable fact,
which will be made clear when theptesi-
dent'a message and other documents are
made public, ia that very many important
atate papers relating to Hawaii are now for
the first time disinterred from the secret
archiveB of the division of Rolls and Indexes
whioh holds its solitary state up in the state
department library.

Chris. Evans Imprisoned for Life.
Fresno, Oil., Dec. 14.���The jury in the
case of the outlaw, Chris EvauB, charged
with the murder of United States deputy
marshailB Wilson and McGuinnis at Samp-
sou Flat disagreed this morning. Alter
being out sixteen hours the judge refus d to
discharge them and sent them back. About
half an hour later they returned with a verdict of guilty of murder in the first degree,
fixing the penalty at imprisonment for life.
When the jury brought in its verdiot Mrs.
Evans fainted and tbe children all broke
down and cried. Chris took the sentence
with little concern, walking out of the
court-room smiling. At 11:30 Mrs. Evans
had just been restored to consciousness but
she is completely unnerved.

Stevens Talks About Hawaii.
Portland, Maine, Deo. 14.���Stevens delivered an addreaa at the Portland Club last
night on Hawaii. Among other things he
said the natives of the island, numbering
34,000, ��ere decreasing at the rate of 1,000
per Minimi, and will soon be extinct. No
greater evil oould be inflicted on them than
restoration. The charge of missionaries
having unlawfully taken lands iB unjust.
The islanda have been fairly won by 70
years of work by Americans. Blount confined himself to a limited field of observation of a large body of influential men. He
c��red not to obtain information. Stevens
concluded by saying he believed his hearers
would prefer the policy pursued towards
the islands by Jefferson, Jackson, Grant,
Blaine and Cleveland of 1889 to that of
Cleveland of 1893.

THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL
Tbe Legislature  Summoned���A   Popular
Pastor Resigns.
Victoria, Dec. 14���[Special].���The Provincial Legislature has been summoned for
January 18th, about the usual date. This
is the last session of the fifth Parliament.
The Rev, J. E. Goombes resigned the
pastorate oi Calvary Baptist church this
evening, and in his resignation states that
he regrets to find that the pastors of this
city are not in the ministry for the souls
they can save or the good they can do. He
does not think he can serve the Master
effectually in continuing the pastorate,
hence the step taken. A protracted meeting
of the congregation is being held tonight to
deal with the resignation, which is bound to
create a sensation.

Distress in Vancouver.
Vahcoovkr, Dec. 14���[Special]. ��� The
oity ministers met to-day and formed them
selves into a committee with one member of
each congregation to relieve the distress in
the city. This coursn has been rendered
imperative by the large number of families
here, that, owing to the lack of work, are
almost destitute. There is no diminuiion
in the number of unemployed. Prospects
for the new year are not bad, several new
buildings, it is said, being projected, and

A great meeting was to be held at New

no difficulty will be experienced. When

Messrs. R. P. Rithet k Co., Ltd., of Viotoria in their monthly freight and shipping
repirt, thus review the transactions of
November: "Dullness and declining rates
have been almost the only features worthy
of notice during the past month, und quotations at the close show a weak market.
Grain freights have suffered most, rates in
the lumber market beinc little ohanged.
This, however, is mainly owing lo the fact
that they are already sounremunerative that
owners would rather allow business to pasB
than accept less. To'bur last iBsue we attached i list of the Canadian sealing fleet,
with the catches of the various vessels during the past season.' In order to make the
record complete, we now give tho catches
of the American and Russian vessels, landed
at different points ou this coast. These figures show a catch of 60,038 skins, which,
added to our Canadian catch of 60,741 skins,
makes the total catch for the season 139,-
679 sealskins. This number is subject to
final revision, but it may be taken to be
substantially correct as it stands."
THE FEDERATION OF LABOR.
Resolutions  Looking to the  Betterment
of Laboring Classes Adopted.
Chicago,  Dec.   14.���W.   B.   Prescott, of
Indianapolis, president of  the International
Typographical   Union,   called   the  fourth
day's session of   the   Union   Federation of
Labor to order this  morning, and  the delegates   settled   down to a solid  day's work.
Chairman Thomas Morgan, of the committee
on resolutions,   presented   a big   batch   of
favorable reports.    One of these, deolaring
in favor of government  ownership  and control of  the telegraph system of the  country
and instructing the officers of the federation
to   inaugurate   an   energetic   campaign  in
favor   of   this   project,   waB    unanimously
adopted.   By a majority vote it was decided
to invite   John   Burns, the   English  labor
leader, to visit  the  United  States  and deliver a  series of addresses,   with  a view of
securing a greater   unity   of effort   in   the
direction  of  ameliorating  the  condition of
the       laboring     people.        It     was     deoided   to   petition   Congress  to   raise   the
wages of seamen  to $30  per month, and a
resolution declaring in favor of the   election
of Hi'iuii ni'i, by popular vote was  adopted by
acclamation, as was also a   request   to Con-
greBB for the speedy enactment of a   law establishing postal savings banks.    This latter
was a substitute for a long resolution pledging support to any  political  party  opposed
to   their   continued   existence.     Free   und
compulsory education waa endorsed und the
incoming council was instructed   to   draft a
bill to that end for presentation to the legislature in every stute^iud territory   where it
is not in  force.    It   waa   further   declared
that evening schools should   be   established
throughout the country in   ennnection with
day   Bchools   aud    in    which    free    hand,
ornamental      and      mechanical     drawing
should     be     tauirht      and     supplies     to
be       free.       It       waa       resolved      that
the  humane  effort  that  prompted  private
relief of the unemployed should be  duly acknowledged, yet insisted   that   it   was the
province and duty of the city  or   state government to afford relief.   Another resolution
was adopted which read as follows: "Thuta
system of society vihich denies to the willing
man an opportunity   to   work,    then treats
him as an outcast, arrests him us a vagrant,
ami punishes him as a felon, is by the convention condemned aa inhuman and destructive
to the   liberties   of the   race.    Thereforo���
resolved���that   the   right   to   work   is the
right of life���that to deny tho one is to deny
the other, that when lhe   private   employer
cannot, or will not, give work, the   municipality, state, or nuliou must."
The next resolution to be fuvorubly reported from the committee plunged the
federation into a warm debute on political
action. It set forth M at the convention approved aud endorsed the movi ment of the
trude unions of Great Britain toward independent labor politira as an auxiliaiy to
their economic action, und that the Biiciah
programme und the basis of its political
labor movement bo submitted far the favorable consideration of all labor organizations
identified with the federation, with the request that the deleg-ites to the next convention be specifically instructed on the
subject. The debate waa still in progress
when the convention adjourned.

A Moonshiner's Death.
Parkekkhuk'!, N. Va., Dec. 14.���Lewis
Davis, a Lincoln moonshiner, who was
being chased by tbe excise officers, fled
into bia houae and barricaded the doora.
The officers broke down the doora and
forced an entrance. When Davis escaped by

He began shooting at the officers, who in
turn tired at him, killing him instantly.
The Discovery Still in Its Infancy u. Tortious Process.
We have constantly deplored the want
of reliable information regarding Lippmatic's
process of obtaining color photographs and
the recent modifications aud improvements
of Valenta, Lumiere and others. The process has been given and the results shown
before the recent Pho'ographic Coi (tress of
the Photographic Society of Great Britain.
Mr. Warnenke describes the procesB aB
folio ws:
Two years ago Mr. Lippmann succeeded
in producing an image of the solar Bpecirum
in its true colors. This was done by a gelatine bromide plate, so weak in il 8 composition as to be almost transparent. The sensitiveness of tbe plate was increased by immersion in a bath of silver nitrate, and
dried. The plate waa inserted in the oamera
glass side toward the lens, and the film
in contact with mercury. The projected
rays of light were thus met by the rajs reflected by the mercury,and the phenomenon of
interference���upon which the whole process
is bused���was produced.
Six examples were shown from nature
and one from a chromo-lithograph, refleoted
on a screen by means of a beam of eloctrio
ight, and caused considerable sensation. Although the red wus defective the colors
were, without doubt, very similar to the
natural ones
Taken as a discovery this is one of the
most important of the nbeteenth century,
but there must be many improvements
mad.- befnie it can be of any particular utility The exposure, although now reduced
to four hours, is bo long us to make it. impossible to photograph but few subjects.
Then, again, if we desire to hang such pic
turea in our room it would be neoessary to
have a special lighting arrangement to see
them by. Now that the process has been
made public improvements should follow
rapidly, und it iB not utterly mpossible
that, the wild dream nf the photographer
since the daya of Niepce will be realized,
and we shall bo able to pho ograph, with
*U the tranecendunt beanties of color effect,
the glorious sunset, the rainbow and harmonious nature herself. ��� Photographic

The idea of caste and class extends

This is iMnstrated by arecent occurrence
in Broad street.
An Irish shoe polisher has a stand in
front of Delmonico's old restaurant. Not
long since he entered a broker's office to
render professional services, hi his absence a dandy young negro seated himself in tho chair and awaited his return.
When  the bootblack again appeared
on the scene, he was horrified.   Aa he
approached  hia  stand the negro said,
"Shine 'em  sp, please, and be  quick
about it."
"Not if I know myself," replied the
bootblack, with an oath. "Get out of
that chair," he continued. "It's bad
enough for me to be shining boots all

shined shoes but for ono of mjr own color."���New York Herald.

The Return from the Chase.
Messrs. Peck, Donnelly and Worden have
returned from a hunting trip on Texada
island, and report meeting with fair success.
The weather was not favorable for hunting,
being foggy with flurries of snow, making it
difficult to track game, but with all the
drawbacks they did not come back empty-
handed, having shot three fine deer, as well
as a large quantity of geese and ducks. The
island is very rough and hard to travel over
and the deer are shy, making it difficult for
any hut practised hunters and good shois to
be successful. They made their sloop the
base of* operations, sleeping in the cabin
each night, and going out in ihe morning to
the hunting grounds. They moored the
sloop in a beautiful sheet of water named
Gilles bay, which they left with regret on
Saturday morning, and touching at Lasqueti
island, arrived home, safe, sound, and with
the opinion that they had thoroughly enjoyed themselves.

for the sole purpose of making people laugh.
It is safe to say that people who enjoy that

"Aud yet���and yet"���the wide blue
eyes wandered perplexedly���"and yet it

"No, dear no. What is the matter
with you? Why do you tremble so'.'
Come, rest beside me on the sofa here,
and tell me all about this horrid dream."
"Tell me first���is there���do you know
a man named Ralph Kestrel?"
Laura turned away and arranged thi*
cushions on the couch as sho answered
lightly:
"why, of course I dol What ha:-
Ralnh Kestrel to do with your dream?"
"Everything, everything! Is he���is
he dead?"
"Dead? Ralph Kestrel dead? Whv
no, dear, no; of course not. What an
absurd fancy!"
"Are you sure? are you sure?"
"I saw him alive last night.''j>
.   "Last night I"
"Yes. lusl night. I give you my word.

"Yes, dear, indeed I did."
"Then it mu.-t have been a dream���an
awful dream, sent by God as a warning
t<> me���a warning to keep me back from

"Ah, Dorrie my sister!"
"Listen: I will tell vou what Idreamt:
I will tell you. I dreamt that 1 loveii
Ralph Kestrel���no, I didnot dream tnat;
I did really love him, Do not interni; ;
me, Laura. This is what I dreamt: -

then to uetimes he was cruel���oft- n
cruel. But I thought of him always. 1
could not oat, n*u* sleep, nor rest; my
life seemed drawn to his.
"Well, my dream; yes. I thought that
I was to meet him at a railway-station,
on the platform underground, I went
there: yes, I did go. 0, it cannot, cannot be a dreaml"
"Dorothy!"
"But tins is what I saw���or dreamed

ing over horribly! Only bin i eel���no
more; the face turned upward���I saw
that; den I���dead, quire tKai!"
The uniiappy woman crouched down
shuddering, her whole form trembnh
like an aspen-leaf.    Laura drew ciu.se
to hor side.
"My poor Dorrie, it was a dream; in
deed it was. Think no more of it except
as a warning sent by (iod against rue
temptation to wickedness. Forget this
man. Pin min away out of yoinlife for
ever. N< vet let yoargood husband suspect that your thrmghts have been for a
moment unfaithful io him. lie is com
ing home now, hi:* heart full Of love for
you. Make him happy. Be a true, loving, contented wife, and thank (Iod who
has saved you from sin and hi6 bitter
punishment."
Laura Kingdon paused, and rose to
her feet.
She seemed to ba l_teniog to some
distant sound.
"What do .vou hear?" asked Dorothy
anxiously, as she observed her.
Laura held up her hand for silence.
"Hush!" she cried; then throwing
open the door of the bedroom, "go in
there instantly, Wash the tear-stains
from your face. Lie down on the hoi,
and caby yourself: sleep i; you possibly
can. He must not see you until you are
more composed. I will explain th.:i y in
have been ill.    He shall not suspect���"
Dorothy had started up in great agitation.
' 'Of whom are you speaking?"
"Hark!"    cried    her   sister;    "there
again!"
"Dorothy, ahoy!" came along, distant
hail from the rive*.
" Merciful heaven exclaimed Dorothy
'it is my husband!"
"Yes," replied Laura, waving her
handkerchief from the bay-window,
which, at the side of the house, com*
ma.i*led a view of the down stroiwi bend,
"itis Captain Dundas iu his ship's boat.
They are pulling him straight fur the
landing .tail's with mighl and main. 11 *
is standing up. waving his hat frautically,
and urging the sailors on as if they were
rowings race. He will be in the house
in live minutes, yuick! do as 1 told you,
nnd trust to me."
"One moment, sister!" cried Dorothy,
as Laura attempted to force her into the
bedroom; "there is om* thing I did not
dream. A letter! I wrote a letter to
him���to Ben, my husband: 1 laid it here
���here on the bed. Where is it? He
must not have it now, and 1 cannot find
it."
Laura was already tearing the letter
into a hundred fragments.
"Fear nothing, Dorrie dear. All that
is at an end.    Trust to me."
She flung the morsels of paper into the
kitchen fire as she hurried to the door
opening on to the river to greet���Captain Bedjamin Dundas.
CHAPTER XV.,
THE HOMEOOMINO.
From the door of the back kitchen or
scullery some half-dozen stone steps descended to a tiny garden made gay with
a hollyhock, a sunflower, and a few
marigolds, geraniums, and eanterbury-
bells. At times in the winter a flood-
tide would cover this little plot of
ground, leaving behind it an offensive
but fertilizing mud, which helped by
the sheltered southern Mpect, produced
flowws of remarkivhle siw and beauty.
As Coptaiu I luteins aV-iv n����r his
little hi *iin* he thought that in ail the
quarters of the world which he had
visited never had he seen so inviting &
spot as this quiet nook on the Wapping
river-shore. The neatness, the sweetness, the picturesquenees of that combination of red aud white and green, the
cosily-smoking chimneypot above, the
gay fragments of flower-garden below,
the flight of wooden steps���which he had
himself painted Navy blue by way of
variety of colour before he went away,
and which seemed now to extend a welcome to him as they stretched down
from the garden to the water's edge-
formed a picture which, to the honest
sailor, excelled for downright beauty
the most glorious palace he had ever set
eyes on. Nor would he have been so
well satisfied to have an empress in "full
rig" descend her marble staircase to receive him, as this graceful girlish figure
that came tripping out of the scullery-
door, across the tiny garden, and down
the clumsy tide-washed wooden steps.
He thought it was his wife���the sisters
bore a remarkable resemblance���and the
sunshine, and a little mist of his own
dibtilling blinded him somewhat.
"Dolly, ahoy!" he roared out huskily
but heartily. "Hilli-hoi lioi-hoi-ahoy!
There's my wife, lads! There's my own
true little woman standing ready to hug
me! God bless her! Halloa, Dolly!
Hallo-ho-ho! Steady lads! Easy, now!
Port a little I That's so. Ship your oars I
Here we are, home at last 1 Thank God
for it I"
The boat ran alongside, and Captain
Dundas, preoccupied with landing, and
with the sun and mist still in his eyes-
more so, in fact, than before���leaped on
to the stairs, and threw his arm around
Laura with ultra-fraternal cordiality.
But even as he caught her in his embrace
he saw that it was not Dorothy; and the
honest tars, who had contended with
their mates for the honour of pulling the
Captain home to his "missus, ' and now
were taking their reward in a good stare,
unhindered by any false delicacy, were
taken aback by the sudden check to the
husband's transports. He paled visibly
under his bronzed skin, and the gladness
died out of his face as he released Laura
almost brusquely, and stammered:
"Why, where's Dorothy?"
Laura hastened to reassure him Dorothy was indoors, fast asleep; she had
had a sleepless night with a dreadful
toothache, and had just "gone off." The
rest would do her good, for her health,
though not seriously affected���yes, yes,
she was unite sure of that���had not been
strong of late: Captain Dundas bad been
so long away: he and Dorothy must
never be parted any more. Recovering
his joyful spirits, though subdued by
concern for his wife's delicate health and
the necessity to avoid awaking her, the
honest sailor gave Laura a hearty buss
all to herself, and bade her go into the
house and fetch some liquor, in which
the Jacks might toast their Captain and
his lass. Then, under his direction, the
men brought up from the boat a number
of chests and packages���some strangely
heavy for their size, some very fragile,
all apparently precious���and deposited
them in the kitchen with the tenderness
of a mother and the noiselessness of a
cat; for, Lord love vou! wasn't these
tilings intended for the Captain's pretty
little "missus"? and she, bless her bright
eves! out of sorts and upstairs, trying
to get a wink o' sleep for once in a way!
It was fully twenty minutes before the
boat departed to return to the ship.
Laura was thankful for the time thus
afforded Dorothy to prepare herself for
Hie kindly-meant deception.
She now. urged by Dundas, who burnt
witli eagerness to behold his wife, yet
would not for the world break in selfishly upon her needed repose, went upstairs to see if Dorothy were "awake."
Sho found her cowering in the bed,
cold, and trembling with fear. Each
moment she expected the coming of her
husband, and a sense of guilt and shame
filled her with such dread as a condemned criminal may feel when awaiting the
executioner.
"Is he coming, Laura? Is he coming?"
she whispered in agitated accents, rising
from the pillow and stretching out a
white arm when she found that only
her sister had entered the room.
"He is below in the kitchen, so eager
to see you! But he thinks you're asleep,
and he is so good, he won't disturb you
li 'cause I told him a story���that you had
had such a bad toothache all night. But
vou can shake off your toothache and
wake up as soon as you like, dear; the
sooner the better for Ben. Let me open
the curtains and look at you. Humph!
You don't look your very best, Dorrie, I
must say. Here bathe your face again
with the cold water. I'll hold the basin.
There, let rue hold the towel���so. Now
i jionge away while I tell you how he is.
I Dorrie, he looks so well and quite
handsome, with his bright, fresh, good-
humoured face and hia big curly beard.
He took me for you when I went down
ihe steps to meet bim, and 01 you should
have seen how disgusted he was when
hi> found he had got hold of me by mistake! And he was so anxious about you,
and asked so many questions, and he has
brought you heaps of wonderful things
from all the ports he's visited. There,
you're nearly all right now. I'll tell you
what I'm going to do. I'm sure I can't
keep him away from you much longer,
so I'll just let down that blind, and cut
Lhe cord so that he can't draw it up
again. Then I'll send him up here to
vou���yes, yes, he must come; don't be
foolish and wicked, and unkind to me
after all the fibs I'm telling. You must
see bim, and, what's more, yon must be
glad to see him. For all our sakee do
oot be cold, or show any fear of huu. He
is so full of love for you."
"How can 1 meet him? How __�� I
look him in the face?"
"Thero! the half light will make tha*
easy. He can't see your face distinctly
now, and when you are dressed you will
bo more yourself. What, crying again!
Now, thisis too bad, really, sister!   Dry

THE NEW YEAR DAWNS
"We refer to our 20 per cent, reduction sale, which is the town talk just at present. Everything we promised in the way of re-
ductionsit has been proven we have done. Misrepresents ion may draw trade to-day, but it hurts the trade of the future. The most
careful and judicious buyers in the district have informed us that when they require a first-class article, at a low price, their experience has been that it saves a great deal of time aDd worry by coming direct to us. We make a specialty of Fine Goods, and
have imported material into N anaimo which it was heretofore impossible to procure outside of the large Cities. This means a bigger
outlay, and necessitates our carrying a stock of between $35,000 and $40,000, but we have to do it to get the assortment.
We have received another shipment of goods from Scotland to-day 'I his lot of cases contains Flannels, Black and Navy
Serges, Meltons, and a large variety of Black _ igured Dress Goods. We ha e also received a half dozen of White Blankets, as a
trial order.   These goods are really something choice, and as there is only a few pair we expect them to sell very quickly.
While you are figuring what you will have for your father, mother, sister, brother, or someone else's brother, for Christmas,
we would suggest your calling and taking a look through our Immense Stock, when you will readily find something to suit you.

STREET GOSSIP.
The latest novelty in Nanaimo in the way
of an eatable is Australian mutton, of which
Mr. Quennell the popular butcher now lias a
supply and which will add greatly to tbe
attractions already offered at his meat store
to housekeepers or others requiring good
meat at a low figure.
Mr. Ellis Davis showed a Tklkoram man
a beautiful dock of hens and chickens of the
brown Leghorn and silver-spangle varieties,
which, were they shown at the forthcoming
poultry exhibit, would make a record for
themselves, but unfortunately Mr. Davis
had to clip their wings owing to his removal
to new premises, and bo spoiled them for exhibition purposes.
Messrs. Hemaus and Wameley have
added another attraction to their share of
meats and are now prepared to supply to
their customers au unaccustomed luxury
from across the sea, namely, Australian
mutton, the first consignment of which has
just lately arrived. It is expected Ihat
meat that has stood an ocean voyage will
soon be a popular article of diet.

It is proposed to establish a weekly publication in Y. M. C. A. interests shortly.
The "^heet will have at loast the merit of
originality, even though its circulation be
limited to the precincts of the Association
reading room. The first number will appear in about a week's time,
It is suggested by many citizens that the
Board of Works in the exercise of its discretion might lay down a plank crossing
from Leigh ton and McBain's corner to the
door of the post-office. It would be a great
convenience to those having business at the
postoffice. The bit referred to is often in a
very muddy and Bloppy condition at this
season.
Messrs. A. R. Johnston k Co., have a
new currant cleaner at their warehouse,
which is very effective. The machine consists of a slanting hopper into which the
currants to be cleaned are poured and which
flow through the lower end into an cylindrical wire sieve, within which four brushes at
right angles to one another revolve, the
cleaned currants paBsing out of the lower
end into the receptacle placed to receive
them; and the refuse being oaught in a zinc
trough placed under the sieve. The maohine
ia capable of cleaning 300 pounds of ourranti
in an hour with ease.

An Interesting Periodical.
"The December number of MtClure's Magazine contains an interesting aud copiously
illustrated account of Archdeacon Fanar,
bis house, the neighborhood, and old St.
Margaret's church at Westminster, by
Arthur Warren. A paper by Professor
Henry Drummond, on Manliness in Boys,
setting forth the work and methods of the
Boys' Brigade, should possess considerable local interest, and is very attractive

decidedly creditable one.

A Succoasiul Ball.
The Masquerade Ball given by the Diamond Dancing Club last night was in point
of attendance and in every other respect a
great success. Thar* must have been over
30 couples of masks on the floor, while a
large number of spectators were
also present and thoroughly enjoying themselves watching the gay
scene. The music was good and the dancing
very pretty to watch, the many different
costumes giving it a kaleidoscopic appearance from a little distance. Common characters were thoae of negroes aud uegresBea.
There were also soldiers, sailors, a vivan-
diere, Red Riding Hood, Night, Morning,
football player, fireman, pantaloon and many
other costumes that were very pretty but
to which it would be difficult to give any
particular character. There were some very
good female diameters made up hymen
who hardly betrayed their sex till uum .skid.
The Diamond Dancing Cub is to be con
gratulated on the excellent way in which
the whole affair waa conducted. The unmasking took place at about 11:30 when
many surprises were occasioned by seeing in
place of particularly ugly masks some of
the prettiest faces in the room. An excellent supper was provided after which the
Greater number returned and continued
ancing until early this morning.
