e
The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.���No Ammonia; No Alum.
Used in Millions of Homes���40 Years the Standard
(Copyright 1893, by the United Preaa.)
London, Feb. 17.���The Liberals' plan is
to triumph over the Peers by compelling
them to abandon their amendments to the
Parish Councils bill. They are hopeful of
success, but they may receive a sharp setback next weeK. It is not improbable that
the Peers will declare their adhesion to certain points which the Government considers
impossible. The Conservatives in the House
of Commons have surrendered much, but
not all questions concerning the control of
Charities, the Allotments, the Poor Law
and Boards of Guardians and tbe reform of
the London vestries; they are still bones of
contention between tho Government and
Opposition. '1 lii-be (juration* must bo set
tied in the Government's (avor before the
Liberals can truthfully boast of compelling
tho assent of the Peers to the programme of
the Commons.
If Lord Salisbury should concede everything involved in the disputi, he would do
so probably in deference to the personal
wisheB of the Queen, who is known to dread
an open conflict between the two Houses.
She is convinced that suoh a conflict would
cause universal clamor for tbe abolition of
the hereditary lawmakers, and the same
conviction has ere this caused her to inter-
fere, notably in 1884, when tbe two Houses
quarrelled seriously over tbe redistribution
of -*e*itq under tho Frauohise Reform. The
Que* u then suiumoued the Duke of Rich-
nii'iid aud mad.* him an intermediary for the
settlement of the quesiions at issue betweon
Lord Salisbury and Mr. Gladstone. Since
then, popular dislike of the hereditary
piiviieges of the upper House has b,c_ie
inimmitied, and the Royal Family fears that
if an attack upon these privileges be once
fairly organized it will soon affect the prerogatives of the Crown. For these reasons
the Queen's influence has been exerted already to induce the Tory Peers to act with
greater prudenoe.
Whatever may be the rertlt of the
Queen's interference, many Liberals and all
Radicals feel that the time is ripe to limit
the power of the Lords to veto the decisions
of the Commons. No surrender of the
Lords on existing issues is likely to modify
the determination of these men to deal radically with the Upper House. As the Tories
have perpetual control of the Peers, they
hold and will hold the power to wreck all
LiliL il legislation. They have not hesitated to reject the Home Rule Bill; they
have made every effort to deairoy the Employer's Liability and Parish Council's Bills;
they have already made their preparations
to defeat in the next session the Welsh 1).
establishment and Registration Reform
Bills. With such a Tory oligarchy per
mauently ruling'he couniry, the Liberals
ask how it will be possible lo proceed with
any reforms.
The Speaker voices the opinion of the best
minds- iu the Liberal party when it demands
that (he Piers power of veto shall be abol
lBhed, while iho "House shall be allowed to
��: aim as a venerable ruin, continuing sunn
customs as are completely harmless."
The Radical Stat; T. P. O'Connor a daily
suggests: "The Cabinet ought to end the
trouble by adding to some important bill
the declaration of the House of Commons
that it is m, unst good Government that the
House of Lords interfere therewith." Another proposal is that the House of Commons shall refuse to vote the salaries of the
officials of the Upper House, thus giving the
Peers summary notice to quit.
The explosion near Greenwich Observatory on Thursday eveniug has caused a vast
amount of newspaper talk concerning the
��� 'ai^iis f iwit'ivhiMii in England. An official well acquainted with the methods and
personnel ot the anarchist colony here told
the United Press correspondent, however,
tl at iht'ie whs hardly one dozen militant
anarchists ot English birth directly. The
(Joloi.y was made up, he said, of squalid no-
bodys, wretchedly poor and without organization as a party. These men, he thought,
were powerless to do much harm. The
French, Swiss aud Italian anarchists, he
said, did not constitute, either individually
or collectively, suoh a daujeroua social factor in London, as sensational police reports
had indicated.
Commander Hodgett has brought out a
new three-koehd boat at Cowes. The first
trial, which was made yesterday, excited
the interest of yachtsmen throughout the
country. As the wind was light it waa
hardly possible, however, to test the ability
of the new model to counteract the tendency to roll in heavy sea. The result of the
test yesterday was to notice the absence of
sidewash. She ran wslt, waa quick in stays
and tuined in her own length. Among the
other advantages claimed for her is increaeed
at ability, greater carrying capacity, higher
apeed and greater ease in handling and
steering.
The Queen haa ordered the court officials
to take Btrict precautions to prevent the
sale of iu* reductions at court by men of

presentations from which the chaperones
reoeive money will be cancelled publicly.
Hereafter but 200 presentations will be allowed at each drawing room.
THE  RUSSO-GERMAN  TREATY.
Grain Measures Cause Discussion���The
Agrarians Are Opposed to It.
[Copyright, 181M, by the United Press.]
Berlin, Feb. 17.���Yesterday and to-day
the Bundesrath or Federal Council debated
the Commercial Treaty with Russia and
practically gave ita unanimous approval to
the measure. The Treaty will be placed
before the Reichstag on Monday and the debute on it will begin on Thursday. It wi ���
reported that the representative, of Bavaria
I in the Kund'Sraih mads tber a ������sent to the
Ueal.y couili*ion��l ii,i"n ih* abolition of
uncap grain tariffs on the railways of Eastern Prussia, but a little inquiry proved that
the report wasnot true. Negotiations are proceeding between the governments of Prussia,
Bavaria aud Wurtemburg, with a view to
arranging a modification of these tariffs, but
as Prussia admits that the demands of the
western and southern states on this -question muBt be met, there iB no likelihood of
any dangerous dispute arising. Under the
present system, grain rates from East
Prussia decrease in ratio as to distance. A
reduction in the duties on Russian corn
which would lead to an influx of grain
from Russia, would expose the agriculturists
of Bavaria and the southern afitea to the
disadvantages arising from graduated railway ratea. As the time draws near for influencing tho members of the Reichstag,
either for or against the Russian treaty,
great activity is d splayed by those interested. Resolutions in favor of the treaty
ae pouring in. Every Chamber of
Commerce and Industrial Society in
the Empire has Bent, or is preparing
to aend,memorials to the Reichstag. Special
delegates will be sent to the Reichstag from
Berlin, Crefeld, Leipsic, Frankfort and
other centres, to work in favor of the
measure. The Agrarians who are bitter
opponents of the treaty, are actively conducting a campaign to influence the Reichstag against thi meaaure. An immense
mass meeiing at which, it is estimated,
5.C00 members of the Agrarian party were
present, was held to-day in the Feen Palace
here. Resolutions were adopted declaring
against the hill and much enthusiasm was
shown. The Semites present at the meeting, assured lhe app oval of a resolution de-,
clariug that eveiy member of the Agrarians
must belong to some Christian body.
KASLO-SLOCAN NEWS.
The Ores are Working Well���One of the
Biggest Bonanzas in the Camp.
Kaslo, B.C., Feb. 17.���[Special]���Despite
thu drop in silver, everything goea on as
usual in the Slocan, aud all speak hopefully
of the future. Cameron and McDonald have
contracted to rawhide and bring down 500
tona of ore from the Grady group on Four
Mile Creek to the ehore of Slooan lake at
Silvertown. They are now putting up the
neoessary buildings for their outfit and
making a trail. A good rawhide trail has
been made to the Payne mine and ICO tons
of ore ia being brought down to Three Forks.
This mine was the first located in the camp
and the ore iB very rich, 'he owners are
Soott, McDonald and S. S. Bailey.
The Noble Five mine is n**w sending down
a carload of specially piked ore, which the
own -s claim will exceed anything that has
yet been shipped from the camp. The
Noble Five ia atill owned and worked by the
original locators, Jack McOuiean is the
business manager and the brothers HenneBy
are iu charge at. the mine. They have oer-
tainly got one of the biggest bonanzas in the
oamp and uulesa they got a very big oiler
indeed, it is probable tha, they will hold on
to it.
It's reported that the Finch outfit haa
struck four feet of rich ore at the Virginius
in White Water Basin. They have run in
an 83-foot tunnel in two months. Owners
of other claima in the White Water are jubilant over it. The C. P. R. aurveyors are
now surveying the townsite of Three Forks.
The snow is making their work very laborious.
Kaslo haa now daily bulletins of the price
of ailver, which are eagerly watched for by
all the mining men. The weather ia keeping fair and temperate. The outlet to
Nelson is quite clear of ice, and the proba-
bilty is there will be no interruption to
navigation.
German Currency Commission.
Berlin, Feb. 17���The acheme of Chancellor Von Caprivi to bring about an abatement of the hostility of the bimetalliBta, by
appointing a currency commission, is likely
to fail. Instead of relaxing their opposition the bimetalliats have intensified it.
Out of the sixteen membera of the currency
commission six are silver meu. Thia iB
rhought to be a large enough minority, considering how they rank in the Reichstag.
The silver supporters, however, waut to
have eight of the membera of the commission. Four of the ablest Bilver meu have
been appointed membera of the commission.
These are Herr Arendt, Hen* von Kardorff,
Count von Mirbach and Count von Schorle-
meialst. They may, perhaps, decline to ait
aa membera. The conviction growB, that
the inquiries of the commission, like similar
ourreuoy inquiries made in other countries,
will result in nothing of benefit.
A Reconveyance Demanded.
Washington, 1). C, Feb. 17.���Commissioner Lamoreaux haa been directed >*y the

The Mexican Fell Dead.
Santa Ana, Cal., Feb. 17.���George Emerson, who shot and killed Louis Yerba, a
Mexican at Santa Argo canyon early this
morning, gave himself into the custody of
the officers at Santa Ana, claiming to have
done the shooting in self defence. He Baid
that himself and his brother, Louis Emerson, were taking a load of lumber and tools

Buffalo, Feb. 17.���Leroy Harris,
Wm. H. Clark, undergoing examinatim
United States Commissioner Faircluld'a
fice in the Federal Building, held up com
miasioner United States District Attorney,
speoial post-office Inspector Latimer and
Deputy United Slates Marshall Watts, st
the point of his revolver and then bolted
and made goo 1 his escape. Harris was arrested in .the postoffice at noon to-day by
special agent Latimer on the charge of forging the name of Wm H. Clark to a money-
order for $100 in Valparaiso, Ind., some
weeks ago. Everything was going on
quietly at the examination, when Harris
jumped to his feet and pulling his big gun,
yelled, "Hold up your hands   or   I'll blow
your  d d  braina   out."     Harris  then
backed toward the door, and with hia revolver still covering the court officials, he
slipped the bolt with his left hand, and
opening the door, bolted iuto the
oorridor, locking the door after him. Quick
aa a flash, Inspector Latimer threw open a
window and fired his revolver into the air,
to attract attention, and then shouted,
"Stop him, stop him!" A orowd quickly
gathered, but Harris had got safely out of
the build ing and was gone before the police
arrived. Harris was for many years an employee of the New York postoffice.
Silk Weavers' Strike in New York.
New Vork, Feb. 17.���Thia afternoon
shortly alter the striking weavers' committee, which had a conference with the manufacturers at Steinhard's mill, had made its
report, the follow iug circular was issued:
"Since many years the silk ribbon weavers
of the Unit id States have found themselves
in a very deplorable condition, inasmuch as
their wages have been constantly reduced.
They have scarcely b��en able to meet the
demands of their families, and aB the crisis
of last September alao had its subsequent
disastrous effect, the weavers were unable
to stand the strain any longer, bo, a good
mauy were forced to the degradation of accepting public charity.
Under all these conditiona, it is to be
noted that the Bilk ribbon indue ry, through
the tariff of fifty percent., iB most pro ected
of all others. Now, in order tn improve
upon our miserable existence aud to be able
to earn a respectable living and shake off
the shackles of starvation, we have formulated a price list which we have submitted
to ,|' the manufacturers of New York, who
wiih ut exception have refused to recognize
it. The weavers were, therefore, forced to
strike in a body, and moat emphatically resolved, as a matter of principle, to rather
starve in the streets thin in the mills.
Comrades and fellow-workmen, everywhere, we appeal to you and enlist, your
sympathy so as to morally support ua in our
aupreme effort and implore you to likewise
take the position with us so tha' we cau
make and earn a living such as b;*co* ies the
standard of manhood. As citizens of the
United States, we do not desire the luxuries
iu which the manufacturers indulge, who
look "ti calmly and with indifference and
see our wives ami children on the verge of
starvation. Therefore, fellow-workmen,
arise and organize, help ua in our struggle
to improve the deplorable condition in
which we find ourselves. Yours fraternally,
The General Strike Committee."
While the committee waa in session Edward Feeney, of the board of mediation
and arbitration, called and asked to be allowed to address them, offering his services
aB arbitrator in the matter between the
manufacturers and strikers. Mr. Feeney
was refused admission to the meeting, but
the chairman stated the object of hia visit
to the committee, after about an hour's discussion, the chairman announced to Mr,
Feeney that the oommittee had no authority
to accept him as an arbitrator.

SAMUEL M. ROBINS, Superintendent
MILD   AUTHORITY.
The Autocrat  of the  Club  lu  the City ol
London.
The police regulations in England are
very different from those common in
this country. The policeman there i.s
not nearly so autocratic as he is here,
and would never think of using- a club
or striking a man except in self-defense.
J. Oilman Speed gives this story of their
mild sway in Frank Leslie's Weekly:
Upon one occasion a man came into
my office and created a disturbance. I
ordered him out. lie declined to go, so
I sent for a policeman. A sergeant
came.   I said to him:
"This man does not. belong here, and
refuses to leave my office. Will you
please take him out?"
I expected the sergeant to tell the
man he must go, and then, if he did not
move on, I expected to see the officer remove him by force. Not at all. The
sergeant said: "You had better leave
here, sir;" and his tone was as respectful and civil as though he were asking a
favor.
The man manifested no intention of
leaving, and the police officer began an
inquiry as to his reasons for wanting to
stay. This so exasperated me that I put
the man out myself, greatly to the astonishment and apprehension of the of-
���flcer.
He explained to me that I had no
right to interfere in the matter I had
brought to his attention; and that
doubtless the intruder would get out a
warrant against me and have me arrested for assault.

HINDOO WOMEN.
Beraarkable   tor Their   lleuuty.   Though
Having llarbaric C'UHtniiis.
The women of the dark-skinned Hindoo race are remarkable for their physical beauty. Below the medium height
(from a European standpoint) their carriage is erect and exceedingly graceful
Tho long, swinging motion which they
affect in walking is produced by their
habit of carrying all kinds of merchandise on the head. The Hindoo head is
small aud the face is refined, with delicately chiseled features. The hair,
"woman's crowning glory," is blue-
black and very abundant. It is worn
parted in the middle and drawn down
straight behind the ears, being coiled
at the back of the head in a heavy knot.
They practice the barbaric custom of
piercing the nose, through which a
gold or silver ring is inserted. The
fingers of the small black hands are
usually covered with rings of various
kinds, while silver bracelets adorn the
slender wrists. Rings arc worn also
frequently on the toes, and the women
are seldom seen without heavy silver
anklets. .
The single gafrment worn by the
Hindoo women consists of a long scarf,
always of some white material, which
is dexterously woven about the body
until it forms a skirt, and what looks
like a sleeveless jacket.
Their caste is denoted by the color of
the mark which the priest of the Brfth-
min religion places each morning on
their forehead. fj-

THE REDISTRIBUTION BILL.
Hon. Mr. Davie presented the redistribution bill in the Legislative Assembly on
Friday. As we stated yesterday the total
representation remains the same, viz. 33
members. Of these 19 will represent the
mainland and 14 the island. This is as
nearly in accordance with the principle of
representation by population as iB practically possible. If the total white population of British Columbia is divided by 33,
the number of members, the quotient, which
is 1,938, is the number of white persons
who at present are entitled to one representative. Indians und Chinese, who do not
possess the franchise, are not taken into
account. As stated above the number nf
representatives given to tho mainland is 19,
and to the island 14 This by a similar process to that above for the whole enfranchised population, gives one representative
for every 1,963 white persons on the mainland, and one for eery 1,999 on the island.
Alberni and the islands lose their representatives. On the other hand the New Westminster district, which had heretofore three
representatives, will henceforth have four.
West Kootenay also gets another member.
An additional representative will be given
Vancouver city. The representation of the
other cities of the Provinoe, Victoria, New
Westminster and Nanaimo will remain uu-
altered.
The bill has evidently been carefully considered by the Government, but no one expects that it will give satisfaction to the
Opposition, especially to the Independent
branch of it. In point of fact there is every
reason lo think that the gentlemen composing both branches of the Opposition do not
want to be satisfied, and consequently could
not be satisfied by any bill that the Government could introduce. But we think the
new bill will give satisfaction to the electors
generally, and that is a more important
matter than trying to give satisfaction to a
number of disgruntled jjoliticiuna who nfu**e
to be satisfied, because they covet aud cannot get the positions occupied by the members of the Government. ThiB is in fact the
secret of the whole business. The leading
men in the Opposition, and especially the
. self-appointed leaders of the Independents
who regularly vote with the Opposition,
want themselves to form a Government; but
we think the country at large does not
want them, and won't have them at any
price.
The bill will undoubtedly undergo a severe and searching examination, and auy
anomalies it may leave unredressed will be
sure to be pointed out and criticized unsparingly. This is at once the duty and
privilege of the Opposition, and if it is done
in a spirit of fairness and candor no one will
have a right to complain. It is to be feared,
however, it will be one of carping and
fault-finding, not of legitimate criticism.
This from past experiences is doubtless expected by the Government, and will have to
be met as best it may. As we have said
above, we think the bill will give general
satisfaction, but that it will satisfy everyone, or the claims of every district, is not to
be expeced. The most that can be done is
to try and satisfy reasonable claims, and to
remove glaring anomalies in the representation. This, we think, has been doue, the
reasonable and just claims of the Mainland
and its increasing importance have *"been
recognized, and impartial men. generally
will see that the Government proposals are
about the best that could be made. Hence
such men will accept   tbe bill aiuj''support
of the Republican party, is to the advantage of Canada, and to the disadvantage or
rather the ruin of the farmers, miners, and
lumberers of the United States. With
respect to coal the Seattle Post-Intelligencer,
the leading Republican organ of Washington State, says
"In the matter of free coal with present
duty of 75 cents a ton on bituminous coal
the American producer and miner have
never been sufficiently protected. Nova
Scoria coal has always been burned in New
England, and the British Columbian and
Australian mines have dominated the Pacific
coast trade and the California markets.
The passage of the Wilson tarilf bill will
enable tho Whitney Nova Scotia syndicate
to market all their coal on the Atlantic seaboard and will add largely to the value of
the British Columbia mines."
Not a syllable is said of the advantage it
will be to the people of the United States to
get cheap supplies of coal and lumber from
Canada, but the jealousy and greed of
American workmen is being constantly appealed to by every argument that can be
devised to incite them against the Democratic administration for introducing a tar'F
bill that will be in any way favorable to
Canadian interests. Such is the line of
argument now being universally adopted by
the press of the Republican party in the
United States, by the press of the party
with which tbe Grits cf Canada
maintain friendly relations, with
whose leaders, the Grit leaders associate,
with whom, unless they are much belied,
they take council how best to bring about
the annexation of Canada to the United
States, and who are often associated with
them in addressing public meetings in Canada. In return the Grit leaders never fail
to address Republican audiences when they
go south, often uttering sentiments of very
questionable loyalty���sentiments that are
neither British nor Canadian���and doing
their best to inculoate the idea that if the
Americans continue to refuse to* trade on
equal terms with Canada, Canadians will at
last be forced iu despair to cast themselves
nto the arms of Uncle Sam, and humbly
ask for the annexation of Canada to the
Union.

A OOLOSSAu
SCENIC   CREATION!
As PRE-SUPPOSED in the Saturday issue
of this paper, the Opposition press is not,
may nol, be satisfied with the redistribution bill. The local organ growls, but in
such manner that under presume it will be
able without much compromise, to "take it
all back." This is subtle policy, but it
stinks iu the nostril* of staunch and honest
partisans of either side who like to hear a
man with a defined policy, and see any
press organ with thu courage of its convictions. As one uf a quartette the local
sheet makes a very pour sounding, and in
no ways a good accompanist to either the
wind-cracked coruet of the Royal City, the
clamorous'cello at the Terminal town or Ihe
constant sawing of the lirst liddle at the
Queen City.
The London polioe, it appears, raided the
Autonomic Club ou Friday night and arrested all the members to be found, some
80 or so. The men arrested were mostly
Germaus and Bohemians. The police
search**, d the premises and also the lodgings
of several of the anarchists, notably that of
Pourdin, finding a quantity of anarchist litem* me, a few explosives and many copies
of a manifesto printed in red ink and headed
"Death to Carnot!" in French. Thousands
of similar manifestoes have been circulated
in France lately. All the prisoners were
liberated shortly after midnight, the chief
objert of the police having been to examine
them and the premises where they harbored.
We do uut tcz what good this vull accomplish. The auaichistn will simply laugh at
the English police aud their milk and water
methods. They should have held the anarchists when they had them, aud banished
every one of them who could not give a
good account of himself and prove it.

THE WILSON TARIFF BILL.
The Wilson tariff bill is likely to be passed
by the Senate without material change.
The rage of the Republican party nod of the
protectionists thereat is unbounded The
Republican papers claim that the bill haB been
passed by the House of representatives in
tbe worst form possible, because it places
ooal and lumber on the free list, and reduces or abolishes the duty on most sorts of
agricultural produce.    This, say the organ
DR.
A, TERRIBLE accident to the German war
ship Brandenburg is reported. The particulars, so far as they are at present known,
were given in the despatch published in our
issue of yesterday. It is stated that 41 men
were killed instantly, and nine more fatally
wounded. It appears that new boilers had RESIDl^lVT1
been put into the ship, and that she had
been sent on a trial trip from the port of
Kiel to test them. From some cause or
other the boilers exploded, killing and
wounding 50 of the crew, and doing much
damage tn the ship. The cause most likely
was scamped work in constructing the
boilers. Instances of such work often occur
in England, and t be Germans, who work
cheaper than the English, are certainly not better workmen. The
Briiish Government in their rage for free
trade and cheapness have sometimes given
contracts to German makers for swords and
bayonets, and have found when the articled
were delivered that the swords would not
cut, aud that the bayonets would bend like '
pieces of hoop iron���that they wore in fact
perfectly useless. A rigid investigation
will DO doubt be ordered by the German
Emperor, and the guilty parties will have a
good chance to be punished as tbey deserve,
if bad workmanship or defective materials
was the cause of the trouble.

A parly is experimenting in Quebec in
compressing peat for fuel purposes. The
peat makes good fuel, but its bulky nature
is a disadvantage. In its compressed form
the peat resembles a block of anthracite
coal, and is of about equal weight. If the
experiment results successfully it may help
to solve the fuel question, It is said that
there is plenty of muskeg in the West from
which this fuel oan be manufactured. Specimens of thia compressed subBtauce obtained
trout peat secured near St. Hyacinthe, Quebec, had the appearance if ordinary hard
coal, aod if it can be produced cheaply
enough, it would no doubt make good fuel,
and is cleaner to handle than coal.

WELLINGTON AND NORTHFIELD.
Danl. Nicholson returned from Nova
Scotia last night, his old home, which he has
been visiting. He is in good form for work
and will no doubt get in some good work in
the oarpentering line.
The sooial that waa to take place at the
oolored A. M. E. churoh, is postponed till
Monday evening, no doubt on account of its
interfering with the concert iu the Masonic
Hall in aid of the organ fund for the publio
school.
Mr. Ross, merchant tailor, of Northfield,
has moved into the store lately occupied as
a bakery by Mr. Dudley, finding it a more
commodious and central place for hiB business. Mr. Dudley dispenses hiB bread now
at his boarding house direotly opposite.

The bs. Wellington left Departure Bay
last night for San Franoisco having on board
five pieces of coal, shipped by the Dunsmuir Co., to the Midwinter Fair. One
block weighs 6.000 lbs., and another, which
is braced up to prevent its breaking, weighing something over 5.000 lbs. The biggest
block came out of No. 5 shaft.
A meeting was held a few nights ago by
the miners at Northfield to consider oertain
charges laid against Dr. Campbell. They
were not proved, however, and by vote of
two, his services are to be retained. The
meeting waB a hot one, endiug with angry
words on both sides. There is still going to
be another meeting today, the oomplaiuing
parties not being satisfied yet.
Our Wellington correspondent writes:
That the people of Northfield are indignant
at the item whioh appeared in yeaterday'a
issue of this pap**r, that the Northfield
mine is working again with a full run. He
further adds: That it is uot bo. Tho miners
are laid off again to-day and lhe prospeots
are that they will only he on and off for a
month. Suoh statements lead people to
think th-it there is lots of work and meu are
coming around seeking work while really
there is not enough to employ the resident
population.
In answer lo the foregoing, this paper regrets having been misled iu the matter. The
news giver of the item was oarefully questioned, with the result that it waB vouohed
for aa perfectly true In view of tho present
state of labor, The Telegram would, if it
knew, be the last to spread false reports of

An Answer to the Free Press,
Editor Tklkuram:
Sir,���Since the Free Press has taken the
liberty to bring my name into public print,
allow me through your columns the favor of
an explanation.
Iu ihe firat place I lay no claim to being a
political Liberal, but in visiting the meetiug
the other night I heard two very able orations, afier which, for the clearing up of a
point, I asked Mr. Marchant if I could ask
a question. Certainly, he said, and he got
up asking if it could be allowed. To the
orator of the evening oame the answer "No!"
I have no criticism to make as to whether
the reply showed a lack of courtesy to that
gentleman, but I do criticise the act of asking any person to elect officers and sign a
document before he knows exaotly what he
ia doing.
What would a limb of the law say to that
let alone an ordinary business man?
The shoe of foolishness must surely be on
the other foot.
Yours truly,
J. E. Halton.
Sohool of Penmanship.
The young man with a bad handwriting
who seeks employment among business men
finds there iB no demand for his awkwardness at any price. Everyone who uses a
pen should write legibly aud attractively.
There is no excuse in these days for a young
person to write in a slovenly manner. This
Bhould be left to those of a past g n rat ion,
who were educated before the days of business training schools. Hero all of ordinary
intelligence and application can acquire a
good business handwriting, the value of
which is not easy to compute.
The Nanaimo Business College has a
speoial department of penmanship, at the
head of which is Mr. J. R. Denneny, who
is acknowledged to be not only one of the
finest penman in the world, but one of the
best teachers and developers of good penmanship in others.

Nanaimo Swifts Defeated.
The swamp had a large number of sightseers present to view the match between
the Nanaimo Swifts and the Wellington
team. The result of the match was rather
a surprise as during tho first half two goals
were eoored for Nauaimo, yet in the second
hall the Wellington team made three goals,
thus becoming victors. The Nanaimo
team played well throughout aud had
amongst their numbers aeveral youthful
players who, notwithstanding their diminutive size, played with the rest a hard and
fast combination game. Tho two goals
scored were by Messrs. Drummond aud Mc-
Cann. The Wellington boys played their
best yesterday and scored their goals within
a marvelously short period of oue another,
They returned last evening jubilant to
their homes. It has been suggested in connection with this match that a few of the
flowery remarks used at times by a few of
the players would have been bettor left out.
Spider and Fly.
Thia spectacular burlesque on being presented at thu Vancouver Opera House last
evening, was met with a crowded house, at
7:45 not even standing room being obtain
able iu the gallery. Since last here the
"Spider and Fly" has been re-written, and
a number of adequate changes havo been
made in the cast. The scenery, too, is new
and appropriate, and as a whole last evening's produotion was a credit to the management. The audience was very exacting,
Buch a large number of encores being awarded that the French ballet did not have an
opportunity to show what they could do.
Last night, the Putnam Sisters, Katie
Marcellus and Bertie Crawford carried off
the honors in their respective parts, while
Will Mandevilie and J. A. Kiernan kept
the house in roars of laughter by their antics
and clever business. The novelties introduced were new to these parts and were
well staged. To-night the "Spider and Fly"
will couclude thiB engagement with changes
as B'.ated above. It is well worth seeing.
The company will remain in town till Monday, when they go over to Nanaimo.���Vancouver Newt-Advertiser (Saturday).

< atimdtion in which Mr. Newton 'yraa
held, lint aside from this the intrinsic
worth ot the young men and their capacities for guiding and organizing volunteers made them a most valuable acquisition whero raw troops were liable
to Lo called into immediate action.
In the excitement and hurry of this
startling call for volunteers Euotace had
not forgotten to arrange his business securely, and to leave also in case of his
i'*:ll a will by which his property was
placed under Mr. Newton's care in trust
for Lillian, his wife.
A clause in the will was also executed,
linowii only to Lillian and placed iu her
hands, securing the Montgomery property to Mr. Newton and his heirs in case
of Us present owner's death.
Lillian, immediately after her marriage, assumed the entire care of little
Jennie Le Barron, and with her hus'
band's approbation withdrew her from
the city school and placed her in an institution near her father's.
Of Estella Le Barron little was known.
It was supposed she had embarked for
Europe immediately after her ill advised
marriage without learning of the desolation of her parents' house. Some weeks
after her father's death a draft from
Paris on him had been received at the
bank where he had so often done business and of course rejected, by which it
would seem that up to that time De
Courtney still supposed that his wife way
a, millionaire's daughter. A report was
also current that Do Courtney was but
an obscure adventurer, and when he
found how he had been overmatched in
duplicity by the crafty Estella he bad deserted her, saying that his wealth and
high titles wero but imaginary and that
a wife and children waited for him in
America.
This information had been communicated to Mr. Newton by Freeman, the
former partner in the old busiuess, and
anxious to ascertain if there was any
foundation for the report he made inquiries.
Nothing satisfactory could bo learned,
however. That Maud had received some
tidings of hor sister was apparent, but
equally so that ber husband waa quite
unwilling her former 'friends should
learn anything from them of her condition. On this point for once Maud coincided with her husband. She cherished too bitterly the memory of ber sister's dishonorable desertion to allow one
emotion of pity for her disappointment
to find a place in her heart.
The splendid equipage, costly furniture
and magnificent attiro with which Varney had bought his bride lost their value,
and her heart cried out for the love sho
had so madly thrown away. And other
sources of unhappiness opened before
her. It took not many weeks for her to
learn that an imbecile and superannuated
husband was not so safely scorned and
Blighted as she had fancied. Hor extravagance ho conld well afford and
easily ovorloo1:, but contempt and insults
unhesitatingly cast upon him he would
not brook, and the misguided woman
was shortly made to feol that an old
man's unrestrained exhibition of vindictive wrath was not the least miserable
part of her existence.
Already had the call for hospital stores
readied every town and village, and
many active and energetic women were
banded together to work for the sick and
wounded among our brave defenders
who might soon bo needing this aid.
The le.i rs that comforted our friends
from their absent*, ones almost daily
kept them very thoroughly informed of
the privations of the soldiers, and evt-'y
moment they could be spared from necessary labor was conscientiously devoted to preparing articles for those so well
deserving the cure.
One evening when the ladies were
quietly at work sewing, scraping lint or
knitting am y mittens and Alfred Ciii-
gontly improving the precious hours ia
study Mr. Newton came in from the
village with papers and a letter from
George, saying:
"Our boys will not complain much
longer of inactivity, I think. Thero is
every Indication of some important movements, and if our generals had tbe men
into tho field efficiently wo may hope
that this sad rebellion will soon be
quelled and peace once more bless the
land."
George's letter was written in the hurry and excitement of preparing his men
for action tho next day. It was short
but full of zeal and courage. He spoke
in high praise of the men under his command.
"You will have no cause to blush, dear
ones, if we bear ourselves half as gallantry on the field as these privates will
do. A set of moro earnest, determined
men I never saw.
"It would be glorious if our generals
were as ready to give themselves aa unselfishly to their country's service as aro
our common soldiers, but I greatly fear
that nt tho beginning our work will be
retarded and the war protracted for
months, when weeks should end it, by
the maneuvering of those in commann,
some of whom appear to be thinking far
more of their own petty political ambitions than of the glory and honor of
our country.
"My dear Lillian, if all our leaders
were as kind, yet firm, as trustworthy
and pure hearted as your noble husbaud.
I feel that a very short time would suf-
jOLQ00ClC_<CrasMMPC��
fice to bring peace and good will once
more to bless our l%ra."
Tears were falling idlently when the
letter was ended, but Rose's eye alone
was undimmed. After a moment's pause
she stepped softly to her mother's side,
saying:
"I waited but for this, dear father and
mother, and now I must reveal my intentions and crave your blessing, feeling
sure you will raise no objections to that
which I solemnly believe to be a call of
duty. I wish to offer myself as a nurse
and secure a place near my brothers, and
if possible I would be there beforo any
battle, that I may be near whatever be
their fate. Will you let me leave tomorrow?"
"Why, my dearest Rose," exclaimed
her mother, "you could not be ready
even if it were wise for you to undertake
such a mission. Think how little you
know of nursing, my dear girl; how
little you have been accustomed to such
deprivations as you must meet in that
situation; how little you have seen of
wounds and pain and agony."
"More reason, mother, that I should
now learn. As for deprivations, have I
noj known as much as have my brothers
before they left us? Our men must risk
life and limb in this struggle, and have
our women no sacrifices to make? For
some time I have been trying to find
something that I could do, and for a time
I felt my sex shut mo oil from every earnest manifestation of love for my country
that required any self denial. But within
a few weeks Lillian made my path clear
beforo me when she so earnestly besought
her husband and parents to allow her to
do what I should have done before and
would do now. The reasons that sustained her will not hold in my case.
Some must 'stay by the staff at home,
for we all know that work absolutely
necessary to the comfort and strength of
those who go out from among us is to be
done here as well as in the field."
Rose had spoken clearly and without
excitement, such as was visible among
all lier listeners. All were much surprised, and after she ceased they remained silent for somo moments. Then
her father, turning to Mrs. Newton, saidi
"I do believe, my dear wife, that Rose
is right, and hard as it will bo to send her
from us, yet I am impressed with the
idea that God has put it in her heart to
do her part in this great work."
"But, my dear Edward, our child has
no experience in a sickroom���not the
least���and has she, so tenderly nurtured,
so lovingly shielded���has she nerve to
witness the shocking scenes that must
meet her eye daily?"
"Ah, my child, you could not bear it."
"Some one must, mother, and why
should I be exempt? I seek It not for
pleasure or to gratify my taste, and yet
I may find more satisfactory and abiding peace in this holy work than X ever
experienced before."
"Again, wife, I must say I think our
child judges correctly.   I do not fear that
sho will bo injured by the mission."
"What  says  Lillian?   Does  she oj***-
] prove of her sister's plan?"
"Most decidedly, and I would gladly
join her myself could I gain yours and
my husband's consent. I have been
longing to repeat my first petition every
hour."
"No, no, your mother must not be left
without one daughter. We cannot spare
you both unless there are more emphatic
calls than we have yet had for assistance."
"Dear Rose," said Mrs. Newton, with
some reluctance, "you must pardon me
if beforo I give any answer I remind you
that should you take this step you may
have your feelings sorely tried by hearing or seeing more of Grenville than
will be for your peace of mind.'!
A deep flush overspread her face for a
moment, but she answered calmly: "I
understand you, my kind mother. I
have thought it all over. I make no
boast of coming through this trial unscathed. There is a sore spot still at my
heart. I havo been for some time making
all needful preparations to start at a moment's notice, and now, mother, give me
your blessing and permission to start tomorrow."
"My darling child, I dare not refuse if
your heart is so moved toward this work
lest I be found fighting against the direct teaching of Providence. I have tried
to give up my children cheerfully to this
| good work, but I have not thought that
my daughters might bo called as well as
my sons, not but what my sons are as
precious," said the mother, her eyes resting lovingly on Alfred.
"But^Rose, you cannot take this journey alone, and there are some preliminary steps to be taken at Washington before you will be allowed to go as nurse to
your brother's camp."
"I will go with our girl and see that
all is safely arranged before I leave her,"
said Mr. Newton. "But on second
thought, my child, I do not see how you
can leave as early as yon desire. You
will need money. I have but little."
"No, father, you need not trouble. You
know I have not used my pony for months
and shall havo uo further use for her. I
told Alfred some time ago to try and find
a purchaser for her. He has sold her for
.$800." �������
"But, sister," said Lillian, "this sacrifice must not bo made. You surely will
not hesitate to let your brother Eustace
defray all your expenses."

THE ART OF SHOPPING
The art of shopping is not nece-sarily to make at all times a good bargain, but to secure a fair equivalent of ihe money spent, and to be able to do
this with the least expenditure of time and tr uble.
__v   GOOD   B^IRGkA-IIN-
Is distiiig ished from a cheap bargain, but in these days of bargains and bargain-days, when from one end of Canada to the other���yea, and the
United State.-1, too���the newspapers are ���rying bargains���and we read about bargains in this thing, and bargains in that thing, when bargains are by
many more to be sought afier than wisdom, and when every dealer in the country from the "peanut vendor" to the "merchant prince" call everything
a bargain���in these days it is not so easy to distinguish a good bargain from the cheap one.
THE   DEHESTXLT   O-F   SI^OIPIPIIsrG-
Should be a feeling of satisfaction with the goods purchased. A rpiisc of having accomplished what you set out to do, and that in a reasonable
and sensible manner.    Not a tired-to-death feeling, and an uncertainty as go whether that forty nine cent article was worth fifty cents after all
"WIS   S^IT  THAT   THE   "WC  3_C_^_.__T
Who desires to make an art of shopping will fasten her faith to the store that proposes to give her always the cash value for her money. It is for
the tr ide of all who desire good bargains, as we distinguish them, that we work.
