LONDON, Dec. 21.���Mr. George C. Bart-
ley, Conservative, called the attention of
the House of Commons to-day to a public
speech made by Mr. Edmund F. Knox.anti-
Parnellite, to the effeot that shares of the
British South Africa company had been
given to a number of members of the House
of Commons for the purpose of influencing
them to sui port the company. Mr. Knox
denied that he had said the shares had been
given to members for corrupt purposes. It
was an ordinary commercial transaction. It
anything he had said implied that members
had boe;i bought he withdrew the remarks,
and apologized for them. Air. Bartley was
not satisfied with the apology. He said it
did not. go fa:* enough, and propostd that
the matter ought to be dealt with as a
breach of privilege.
Mr. Gladstone held that the matter could
not be made the subject of a motion declaring it to be a breach of privilege. He said
further that Mr. Knox had absolutely withdrawn the statement.
Air. A. J. Balfour, leader of the opposition in the House, suggested that Mr. Knox
ought to be asked to specifically withdraw
the statement that "several members of the
House had been allotted shares, ��3 being
payable on the allotment, which they could
sell next day for ��i."
Mr. Knox paid he declined to withdraw
what he knew to be a fact. He only withdrew the inference that members had been
influenced in the*r publio conduct, by the
allotment of shares.
Mr. Balfour then said that it was the
most serious accusation that had beeu
brought against the house during the whole
of his parliamentary experience. He re-
commeuded that Air. Knox's apology be accepted, but moved that the statement be
placed upon the record that the words were
a breach of privilege.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt, Chancellor
of the Exchequer, said he ,J.*,i!,ced that anything could be gained by ! i.lopaog ho motion. The motion was negatived without
division.
the Privy Council has declared that the
warehousing clauses of the Dominion Banking Act are constitutional. A question as
to their validity arose in a case in which the
Union Bank was appellant.

A Gladstonian Wins.
London, Dec. 21.���At the by-election in
the Accrington division of Lancashire today, Joseph Francis Leese, Gladstonian,
was elected over Herman Hodge, Conservative, by a vote of 5,822 to 5,564. At th
last general election Mr. Leese received
6,019 votes and Mr. Hodge 5,472. Mr,
Leese succeeds himBelf in the House of
Commons. He was obliged to contest the
seat again because he recently accepted the
recordership of Manchester. The Conservatives expected to defeat, Mr. Leeae. They
prophesied that the men who voted for
Home Rule last year had become disgusted
wiih the oau**e since *,he discussion of the
bill aud would bang back the constituency
to the Conservatives who held it before the
last general election.

London, D<c. 21.���The Timet published
this morning a four column story of the
Matabele campaign, written by Gerald
Paget, a scout who served with Captain
Williams and the Ifah brothers in the forces
of the chartered company. He left Buluwayo on November 13th, after narrating
with great miuutin* the events already published. Paget tells of captain Williams'
dea*h, which occurred while the scout was
on the sick list. He says : "On the evening of October 26th, Ifah and the other
Si'ou's galloped into camp. They were being
pursued by the lusukamiui impi, who surprised them, burning the kraal. They had
to gallop for life. All returned except the
captain,whose horse bolted down the natives'
line. The captain escaped, but met another
party of Matabeles." Grett efforts were
made to find Williams or learn of his fate,
Paget says, but Dot until days later was the
truth ascertained. Wounded Matabeles
who were brought in related that the captain's horse galloped until it was dead beat.
The captain then dismounted and rau ahead
into the open field There he stopped and
waved his hat at his pursuers, inviting them
to come on. He emptied his repeater, killing two Mat alleles, and then used his revolver until he was shot in the forehead.
The Captain Williams referred to was Captain Gwy��ood Williams, whose death was
leported two days ago. He was leading a
pursuing column northward from Buluwayo,
when tho fight mentioned by Paget took
place.
A Sad Affair.
Halifax, Dec. 21.���A quadruple drown
ing a icident occurred on Chocolate lake,
about three miles from the city. A lot of
boys ��nd girls had been skating on the bike
for several days past, but the weather had
been very mild and the ice gradually grew
weaker, aud, giving way, Mary Doyle, seed
20, her brothers, James, aged 13, and Johnnie, aged 12, children of Peter Doyle, quar-
ryman, and Charles Neal, a sixteen-year-
old boy from the Industrial school, were
drowned.
The  St.  Lawrence  Not  Frozen Dp Yet.
Montreal, Dec. 21.���There was a big ice
shove last night and the water at the pumping stations took a sudden jump about 10:30
o'olock last night.    From  12 feet above the
river datum  it went up to 16i  feet.    The
gates have  to  be ��hut and  pumping commenced at 12$ feet.    The  rise  was first announced by the automatic bell  at  the Craig
street pumping works, where steam waa already up  ready  to  begin.    At Hochelaga,
the Hudon   cotton   mills'  engine-room   was
flooded and  work  had  to  be stopped.    At
Mills street the rise was  from 12 to 17 feet.
Here they begin to pump  at  15 feet.    The
water    is      now    stated    by    the     road
department   to   be  ouly two   feet   below
the     revetment     wall.      All     chance   of
crossing     the     river     before     Christmas
is   now  gone.     The  water   may   rise yet
higher, especially with so much water coming down from the west, where much of the
recent snows here fell as rain.    The  rise in
temperature    proved   a   veritable    church
steeple on the  temperature chart. At seven
last evening at   the city   hall it  was  three
degrees below zero, at six  this morning 25
above, a  rise of   thirty   degrees   in eleven
hours.    At noon ,'12  degrees (when thawing
commenced) was reached.    By measurement
at Allan's   wharf at   noon   the   water was
found to  be two  and a half  feet  below the
revetment.    The river is again  open  in the
vicinity of the bridge,  and a broad stretch
of the St. Lawrence  blue is to   be seen near
Windmill point.

Sentencod to Banishment.
Paris, Dec 21.���The socialist Moore,
who wounded M, Lockroy with a revolver
on August 12th, was sentenced to-day at the
Seine assizes to six years' banishment from
the country. Moore denied that he intended to kill M. Lockroy. He denounced
the existing state of society as inimical to
the working people. M. Lockroy pleaded
for clemency towards Moore, whose mind,
he said, was undoubtedly deranged. Moore
repeatedly interposed with "That's a lie!"
and "I don't want your pity."
A Terrorized City.
London, Dec 20.���Letters received by
London commercial firms from agents in
Rio Janeiro give gloomy descriptions of the
present state of affairs. The letters are
dated November 27. The employes of the
houses on the Nictheroy side of the bay
were hardly other than prisoners. During
the day they were afraid to go out in the
business part of the city. From dawn to
nightfall cannon were booming and small
arms kept up a rattling tire. Shot large and
small dropped in the streets, making everybody who was obliged to be abroad fear constantly fur his safety. "After nightfall,"
wrote one correspondent, "soldiers stop and
rob people iu the streets, and the police
assist the soldiers in st'ippiug and searching
pedestrians, as they s��y. for arms, which is
but another name for robbery.

American Ships Must Help Themselves.
Washi.nijton, Dec. 21.���A cable message
from eight commanders of American merchantmen at present anchored in the har
bor of Rio Janeiro, protesting against
interference with their rights by the insur- j escort
gents was received by secretary Gresham
yesterday, and by him sent to secretary
Herbert, as it concerned the authority of
the war vessels of the United States. The
merchants contended that they were prevented by the constant firing between
the insurgent and government forces from
landing their cargoes at the custom house,
although the regular government had given
them permission to do so, and they asked
that the commanders of the American
cruiBers be instructed to see that they were
not debarred from this privilege. Secretary
Herbert has decided that he has no authority to instruct Captain Ticking in the premises and that attempts to land cargoes
from American ships by means of lighters or
otherwise, must be made at the  risk of the
commanders, notwithstanding that these, preparing for the banquet and reception to
privileges are secured for the British and : Nanaimo s visitors, and it is confidently ex-
Germau vessels. i pected that they will have a royal welcome
Visitors from the Capital.

to make the reception a Buccess and give

The party will visit the Poultry Show in
accordance with the invitation of the Society
during the afternoon. The party will stay
until Saturday. During their stay a

BY   THE   MARIPOSA.
News From Honolulu- Excitement on
the Corwin's Arrival The Provisional
Government WiU Resist the Resto-
ration of the Oueen.
San Francisco, Dec. 21.���The arrival of
the United States revenue cutter Corwin on
the morning of the 14th at Honolulu, according to interviews with the passengers of
the S.S. Mariposa, which arrived here today, occasioned considerable excitement.
Rumors as to the purport of her mission
were freely circulated and speculation was
rife as to the instructions to Minister Willis. The supporters of the queen confidently
contended that President Cleveland had
finally decided upon an aggressive move
which would speedily result in the restoration of the monarchy. The adherents of
the provisional "government, confident in
their ability to maintain their ascendancy,
waited patiently for definite information.
All attempts to gain possestion of San Francisco papers were unsuccessful, and the i 111
cers of the revenue cutter refused to impart
auy information as to the state of the Hawaiian contioversy when they suiled from
port. Excitement increased when it became known that tho Mariposa would be
detained pending the completion of advices
for Washington. As it was, the steamer
was detained five hours until the bulky correspondence for President Cleveland had
been sent aboard.
Nicholas Wolf of Chicago, in an interview
with a United Press representative, said he
had visited the provisional government's
defenses, aud he characterized them as
effective for offensive or defensive tactics.
The barricading of the government buildings has been continued with uniuterrupted
activity. One httudred and fifty picked
provisional troops Blept on their arms. Arrangements have been so perfectly made
and such thorough discipline is enforced
that on the slightest aggressive movement
of the royalists or their sympathizers fully
1,500 men, thoroughly equipped, could be
called into the field in ten minutes. Around
the palace two heavy Krupp guns, purchased by the late King Kalakua, and two
Galling guns have been stationed, in addition to nineteen smaller pieces. When the
Mariposa sailed, a detachment of the provisional soldiers were digging rifle pits. The
principal parts of Liliuokalani's regalia has
been stripped and relegated to the government museum. All monarchial decorations
of the throne, through and about the palace,
including the throne itself, have been dismounted. In fact, everything pertaining to
the insignia of royalty has been taken down.
The feeling of the adherents of the provisional government is one of positive determination. So much so as to be generally
accepted as a conclusive sign that monarchy
in Hawaii is a thing of the past.
E. A. Williams of this city, who has been
on a visit to the islands, said there was
great though unostentatious excitement at
Honolulu on the arrival of the Corwin. In
view of many conflieting rumors, and a general feeling of uncertainty as to how far
President Cleveland would carry out his
policy of restoring the queeu, the excitement among both parties was intense. The
provisional government, he said, was sanguine of its ability to resist the queen's forcible restoration and was fully determined to
meet force by force. It was generally
understood by all parties that the Corwin's
mission was the carriage of special instruc-.
tions to Willis. The nature of these instructions was unofficially known during
the afternoon of the day she arrived, their
purport being understood to mean that it
was impossible to resort to force in an attempt to place the queen on the throne.
The provisional government and its supporters were not at ail surprised by this turn of
affairs, as they all along contended that the
employment of force was altogether out of
the question unless sanctioned by Congi'i ks.
The present situation was accepted as a
matter of fact. The possibility of the lauding of marines from United States ships has
never had any disturbing influence upon the
provisional government. There were some
rumors of disaffection among the marines,
and in fact it was suggested that in the
event of matters reaching a crisis, this disaffection might be found to amouut to insubordination. From the very nature of
the rumors, it will be exceedingly ditlicult,
to run them to ground. Iu conclusion,
Williams said that to any one having any
interests on the islands, the benefit of a continuance of the preseut government in
power is apparent aud conclusive. Tie return of the queen, he satd, was absolu ely
impossible without the employment of force,
and a stroug force at that, too.
The theory of the government, bo fur as
they can adopt any, is that the administration intend Willis to do all he can to restore
the queen without using actual force, but
that for the use of force, the sanction of
Congress will be asked. In an executive
session at 2 p. m., of the day the Corwin
arrived, president. Dole stated that minister
Willis had persistently declined to impart
to this government any knowledge whatever of his instructions, and that t heir-
ignorance continued to be complete as forany
knowledge derived from him was concerned.
The government has framed an ultimatum,
in which it declines to negotiate for the restoration of the crown and declares that it
will resist with military force any and every
attempt to overthrow the provisional government. This ultimatum was held ready to
be sent to minister Willis, should he enter
upon a fulfilment of his instructions.
Chief justice Judd made a public denial of
the ex-queen's published statement to Blount
that he expressed assent to her observation
that "the present constitution is full of
defects." By the sailing vessel Washington,
papers with dates to the 27th November
were received with Liliuokalani's Btatement
to Blount. Americans laid hold of this
document and tore it to pieces with eager

Women Voters in New Zealand.
San Francisco, Dec 21.���The SS. Mariposa brought very little  general  news from
Australia   or   New   Zealand   and    Samoa.
There haa been  a general  election in New
Zealand and the  government   was  restored
by a handsome majority.    It  waB  the  first
election since womens' suffrage  became law,
and ladies were conspicuoua  at all the polling places.    Nearly  5.000  women  voted in
the north   island   alone.    The  steamers of
the  MesBageries  Maritimes   company   will
probably aoon be coming  to  San Francisco.
At present the vessels  ou  that line run between Sydney and Marseilles.    When the
Mariposa was at   Sydney, Comte Douville
Maillefeuwas  at  Brisbane arranging for a
line of steamers to  run  between Brisbane
and San  Francisco, calling at Fiji, Hawaii
and New Caledonia.    If this line is put m
operation there will   then be  three lines of
steamers between the Pacific coast and Australia.

The Shot Process of Drilling.
In this method of drilling through rock
steel shot are poured inside of the drill
pipe, into a ring or channel made in the
ruck hy a few revolutions of the pipe. The
pipe hears ou this ring of shot, and when
the pipe ia revolved it causes the shot to
revolve also and cut the channel in the
rock deeper. As boring large holes through
hard rock by means of diamonds (which
are now costing from three to four times
its much as they did a few years ago) is
very expensive work, tho new process of
drilling by means of steel shot will.it is
expected, be used in many cases instead of
the diamond drill. Popular Science News
reports the putting dowu of a test boring
8 inches in diameter and 890 feet deep.
Fireproof Paper.
The adaptability of paper is regarded as
likely to lead to a solution of the problem
of rendering dwellings and business structures fireproof. The industrial World says
it is now found that paper can be made
perfectly fireproof while remaining amenable to the same treatment iu the matter
of color, polishing and handling ns most
woods. Such a material oilers all of the
advantages as an ideal substance for floors,
and it can boused equally well for the walls
of buildings. Besides this, it can be used
in the finish and furniture of houses and
would unquestionably do much to reduce
thu peril of fire, against which inBuflicient
provision is but too often taken.
The Best Way to Clean a Clock.
In washing a clock movement, a tolerably stiff brush should be used, and in wash
ing tho plates, if care is used in manipulating the brush, very little if any pegging
out of pivot holes will be needed. Of
course, any and all repairs must be done
previous to the washing. Tho use of benzine for clock cleaning, except for removing gummy oil from the mainspring, is of
questionable service. Let any person give
warm water and soap aud benzine both a
fair, square trial, and according to The
Horological Eeview there will be but one
verdict, and that will be for the soap and
water.
The Ioe Railway at Chicago.
The ice railway and the inspiring Jingle
of sleighbells in summer time on genuine
ice and snow represents one of the surprising features of the Midway plaisance. It
may be mentioned that the powerful agent
that reduces the temperature in the manufacture of ioe and snow is anhydrous ammonia.

THE FRENCH FLEET.
It appears that there are naval alarmists in
France as well as in England, ready to raise
an outcry over the condition of their navy
on very small occasion. Mr. Gladstone's
speech on Tuesday in the House of Commons seems to have afforded an opportunity
to some of the French alarmists to air their
notions and display their patriotism. M
Clemenceau, the Radical leader, has led off
in a letter published in La Justice, in which
be quotes the statements made by Mr.
Gladstone as to the superiority of the British fleet. La Marine de France, the organ
of the French navy, in effect supports
Clemenceau by maintaining that the French
torpedo boats in the Mediterranean are
faulty, and cannot be worked as planned.
It also says that the newest French ironclad, Magenta, built at a cost of 2,500,000
francs, inclines at an angle of eight degrees
when turned, even in a dead calm. In consequence of this defect the French admiral in
command of the squadron in which the Magenta is, has issued orders to her officers
never to turn her when going at full speed.
It seems certain that the next great war
will develop lots of faults in the gre*��t ironclad fleets of all the powers of which at
present the world knows nothing. At all
events it is to be hoped that the discussion
will give pause to tho Freuch, and lead
them to think that aftc* all they are not
quite so well prepared for war as they had
fondly imagined, especially for a naval war
with England. To challenge the latter in
addition to a war on laud with Germany, as
the French of late have seemed disposed to
do, is nothing Bhort of an act of national
lunacy. If the French convert the triple
into a quadruple alliance, by forcing Great
Britain to join it, they will have achieved
the worst piece of diplomacy from their
point of view which it is possible to
imagine. But that is in poiut of fact
what the French have been laboring at
for months past. We certainly think the
British Government would do well to take
them at their word, and join the triple
alliance without any more delay Then it
would remain to be seen what the French
and Russians would do about it. We do
not think they would do or dare do anything. The alliance would be too strong
both by land aud sea to be attacked with
any hope of success Thus we think that
by this st��p the peace of the world would
be secured, and that, therefore, it ought to
be taken.
of events now current in the heretofore prosperous cities of the United States. It is
elear that the Americans have not yet, any
more than the nations of the old world,
solved the problem of the ages, how to protect the masses of the people in hard times
from destitution and suffering. And it iB
to be feared that as this continent fills up
with population the problem now to be faced
will become year by year a harder one lo
solve, viz., to fill with food the mouths of
huugry multitudes calling aloud for bread.
It is usual to represent democratic institutions on this continent as a triumphant
success. On the contrary democratic in-
stitu* ions even in the northern half of the
continent are only on their trial. In the
southern half, from the Isthmus of Panama
to Cape Horn, they must be regarded as
practically a failure. It remains to be seen
whether in the northern half democratic
principles will teach the people patience
aud self-help in times of suffering, from
which it is evident that no political institut-
liotiB yet tried will save them. It is to be
hoped however that at the worst democracy
will at least do better than the military
autocracy of the Cztr has done under like
circumstances in Russia. At any rate it
anuotdo much worse.

The talk about Canada's mammoth cheese
having proved a failure is mostly an exaggeration. Diiry commissioner Robertson
states that a few inches on the top of the
cheese are damaged, but that the bulk of
the body of it is as sound as ever, and that
he means to hold the contractor who purchased it to his bargain.
DISTSESS IN THE UNITED STA TES.
It appears that there is at present distress and destitution, to the point of actual
starvation in several parts of the United
States. New York and Chicago are especially mentioned in this connection. The
Chicago Tribune of the 13th instant says:
"The number of destitute persona in this
city iB appalling. Those who have no
homes, neither place to sleep nor food to
eat except what is furnished tree of cost to
themselves, are numbered by thousands,
and doubtless these are but a small proportion of all those who are threatened by the
wolf at the door. The dullness of business,
which is felt all over the country, is emphasized painfully here by the cessation of
many avenues of employment that closed
with the Fair. The list of sufferers includes
not only great numbers of those who found
regular work here a year or two ago, but
many of those who were attracted by the
Fair excitement and now find themselves
stranded with little hope of being able to
earn wages and no ability to go elsewhere
except on foot."
This is a distressing state of things to be
found existing, by confession of the American press, in a city of the size aod importance of Chicago, heretofore one of the
busiest and most prosperous towns on this
continent, the scene during the past summer of one of tha greatest and most successful industrial exhibitions ever held. It
illustrates aB nothing else that we have seen
doea the extent and severity of the businesa
depression that has overtaken our neighbors.
As stated above the distress is not confined
to Chicago. There are famine districts also,
we are told, in Michigan, Buch as the
Gogebic range where it is said that an outlay of at least $100,000 will be needed to
aave the people from starvation during the
winter. In Minnesota, in New York state,
and in New York oity there are thousands
out of employment, who during the next
few months must depend on charity for subsistence. Even on the Pacific coast there 1b
distress, and in the city of San Franciaco
there are at present many unemployed. It
reads more like a story of Irish distress thaQ
It appears that all danger of trouble between France and England in Siam is not
yet over. British warships are collecting at
Bangkok, and by latest news received from
the Orient affairs in that quarter appear yet
to be in a decidedly disturbed condition.
The French will do well not to push matters
too far in the further East, or they may
force the British Government to join the
Triple Alliance, and thus bring on a great
war both in Europe and Asia, for which
France and Russia might after all find
themselves but ill prepared At any rate
the policy of France in thus almost forcing
England to join the number of her enemies
is not wiBe. For our own part we think
that under the circumstances there ought to
be no hesitation on the British Government
what course to take. The pretensions of
the French in Siam ought to be lowered at
all hazards.

IS   YOUR   LIFE   INSURED?
A POLICY OP LIFE ASSURANCE is the Cheapest aud Safest mode of making a certain provision for one'a

The  Great  West  Life  Assurance  Company  offers an exceptionally favorable Policy, at low

CincAfio, Dtc. 21.���An important movement looking to the supervision of municipal
affiirs under religious, auspices and a
movement which will be watched with
interest throughout lhe country, was inaugurated here to clay. At noon prominent
clergymen, representative of every religious
denominal ion, as weil as theSalvation Army,
assembled at Willard's hall, in the Women's
Temple, and formed a Central Union religious body for aggressive work in municipal
affairs. It iB proposed to divide the city
into districts and to bring about the enforcement of each of the laws tor the suppression
of gambling, the regulation of the liquor
traffic, of houses of ill-Umeand the suppression of professional prostitution. The ministers propose to go to work in earnest and
to adopt the most, radical methods An old
law has been unearthed which gives the
power to any ten men to call upon the police
for aid in suppressing houses of ill-fame.
Ten r* preaentative dtvineB, it is said, have
banded themselves together to enforce this
law, ami have pledged themselves to shut
up every house or die on their doorsteps.
The indications are that within a few weeks
ten Parkhurst crusades in one will have begun in Chicago.
A Paris dispatch says that the laws for
the repression of anarchism aeem to be proving effectual. Anarchist suspects have disappeared swiftly from the city, and the tone
of the socialist and anarchist press, cowed
by the prospect of prosecution or suppression, has been moderated greatly. Several
pronounced anarchist sheets, among them
the notorious La Sevolte, have ceased appearing. One has published a notice that
hereafter its editors will be obliged by prudence to abstain from making apologies for
bomb throwers, as then the police officers
would step in and punish all concerned,
"Hereafter," saya the editor, "we shall not
be free to express the opinions that we advocate. ' Their orators, too, are proving
themselves to he as tame as their papers in
the preaence of the new law.
The San Francisco Chronicle thinks that
the gunnery of the Brazilian sailors, bad as
it is, is not much worse than that of their
neighbors. It Bays: "There will be much
sport made of the gunnery of the men who
manned the artillery in the Brazilian forts
of Santa Cruz and St. John and who failed
to hit their target, which happened to be
another fort, more than three times out, of a
total of sixty shots fired. Auy witticisms
made should be carefully guarded, and no
reference should be made to race deficiencies,
as they might suggest an inquiry into the
performances of other peoples. The bombardment of Alexandria did not cover England with glory, if all the stories told are
true, and there ia reason to believe that
there was a rjood deal of chance work in the
recent performances of the French in the
Orient. The truth of the matter is that
modern artillery is not sufficiently understood to make the gunners proficient. In
other words, it costs so much to practice in
real earnest that the drills at the gunB are
largely theoretical. Formerly a gun could
be discharged an indefinite number of times
at a moderate cost; now a small fortune is
blown away at every discharge, and not only
that, but the life of the piece is measurably
shortened. Let us be respectful in our
criticism uutil we do some effective work
ourselves to which wo may point with
pride."
A Well-Known Scoundrel.
New York, Dec. 21.���Walter Guy Furn-
ald, who ia reported aa having been arrested
in San Francisco for an alleged attempt to
swindle the bankB there, is well known in
this city. He first came into notice here on
October 27th, 1892, when he was arrested
on a charge of paasing a worthless check
for $500 at the Murray Hill Hotel, about a
year previous. With lhe proceeds he went
to Europe, taking with him the wife of a
Boston hotel keeper. On the trial hiB
father, who is a wealthy citizen of
Manchester, N. H., testified that he authorized his son to draw the check on which the
charge was based, but, on hearing of his sou's
elopement stopped payment. Furnald was
discharged, but was immediately re-arrested
on the complaint of Mrs. Cathetino Post, of
Chicago, who claims that Furnald, who had
formerly lived with her in Chicago, had
Blolen $3,000 worth of jewelry from her and
disappeared. Upon the promise of Furnald
to return the jewelry, Mrs. Post withdrew
the complaint.

PROVINCIAL   NEWS.
Application to Record Gold Claim at
Esquimau ��� Salmon Fishery Regulations.
A stock company is to be established in
Victoria at the Imperial theatre.
Oity engineer Tracy of Vancouver, is demanding an investigation of the charges of
incompetency brought against him by Aid.
Franklin.
Vancouver is reported to bo infested with
vags snd bums. Two tough characters recently attempted to hold up a citiz"n as he
was goini? home. The police aie workiug
hard to free the town from its unwelcome
visitors, and have met with tome measure
of success.
Drafts of the new fishing regulations re-
centl) issued by the Department of Marine
and Fisheries at Ottawa, governing the
British Columbia fisheries were to have
been submitted to the various boards of
trade of this Province before being finally
adopted. Mr. D. J. Mui*n, a well-known
Westminster salmon canuer, has frankly
stated his belief that tbe boards of trade
were not consulted in the code at all. Co u-
missioner Wilmot had played a lone hand
in the game as far as British Columbim
canning interests were concerned, aod
tbe provincial boards were not even indirectly consulted.
Captain J. G. Cox, president of the British Columbia Sealers' Association, has returned to Victoria from an extended visit to
England and eastern Canada. Captain Cox
reports tbat owing to the present condition
of the market, he was unable to sell his
skins. Tbe prices offered are 15 per cent,
less than last year, and the outlook for next
season is, in his opinion, very gloomy.
Captain Cox interviewed both Cuuadi&ti and
Brii.i* h minibtei'B and auuionfcuo, aud luund
tiiat Vuiy little 6eemed to bs known about
future regulations concerning the sealing
industry.
Application for record was made in Viotoria on Wednesday for a gold claim in No.
2 section, Esquimalt district. The claim is
described by the parties interested as on the
harbor front, on Imperial Government property, and very close to Victoria. The locator is John Sandercock, who has two or
three other Victorians interested with him
in the discovery, all sharing the opinion
that their claim will prove one of tho greatest finda British Columbia hus ever known,
The circumstances of the discovery, which
was made hint summer, are for the present
withheld. One of the syndicate said that
he waa confident that there is "millions in
it." "The lode," he continued, "contains
gold, silver and copper in quantity; there's
nothing to beat it in the province, unless
perhaps the Silver King. That ia what the
��BBay shows." No development work has
been done, of course, hut a company is now
in formation to proceed on an extensive
scale. The ledge can be easily worked,
being very accessible and near the surface.
There has reached this office a paper with
a long name: The Banffshire Journal., Aberdeenshire Mail, Moray, Nairn and Inverness   Review   and Northern  Farmer.   The
isBue of Nov. 21st contains a deUiled account of the great storm which prevailed
along the British coast at that, date. Part
of it has an interesting local connection and
r.'ads : Wreckage driven ashore the duy
before was also got, which, owing to tbe
great masses of foam that covered the coast,
could not previously be discerned. Yesterday morning a sailor's box wus cast up with
the name Krefft cut out on it with a knife,
and there waB also a hlue summons, sea
drenched but intact, belonging to the same
sailor. It had been issued in the Province
of British Columbia summoning John Krefft
on board the ss. Grandholm, aa a witness
against the captain, John Masson, for pay
ment to Alexander Urquhart of the sum of
860, to appear on Thursday, the 10th Sept
ember, 1891, at the court houae, Cambie
street, Vancouver, and bore the signature of
M. A. McLean, J. P.���Vancouver World.
Washington  Wirings.
Washikoton, Dec. 21.���The resolution
introduced in the house to-day by Mr.
Blair (Republican, New Hampshire) instructs tbe committee on foreign affairs to
inquire fully into the late revolution in the
government of the Hawaiian Islands and the
connection our government and its officials
had in the matter, especially aa to the
charges of th* president, made in his
message to Congress, concerning the
action of Captain Wylla and Minister Stevens. If found necessary
in the judgment of the committee to make
the investigation in the Hawaiian Ialands,
they are to apply to the House for authority
to go there. A preamble to the resolution
reviews the statements recently made regarding Hawaii and quotes that section of
the president's message in which he says he
believes that a candid and thorough exam
ination iuto the facts will force the conviction that the provisional government
owea its existence to an armed invasion by the United StateB. The
honor and welfare of the people of the
United States and the prudence and veracity
of high officiala, tbe preamble aays in conclusion, are called in question.
The case of Commodore 0. F. Stanton,
who was deposed from the command of the
United States squadron at Rio Jonoiro, for
saluting the insurgent Admiral Mello, was
disposed of by secretary Herbert to-day by
an order restoring Commodore Stanton to
duty, although strongly disapproving of his
aotion.
America's Coal Trade Will Suffer.
Washixoton, Dec. 21.���The minority report on the Wilson Tariff Bill, which was
presented to the House to-day says: The
Canadian coal deposits along the line of the
North Pacific Railroad are sufficient in area
and near enough in location to supply our
northwestern states. Transportation by
way of the Great Lakes gives foreigu co*,s
easy entry to the Mississippi valley. Foreign
vessels bringing in coal as lallaat to New
Orleans and other southern ports even now
compete with the coals of Pennsylvania and
West Virginia. '*%""'��� arB extensive
Mexican coal measuxtvj just across the.
Rio Grande already opened up and coal
mines extensively operated only seventy
miles away, ready to furnish all the the
fuel Texas needs for its locomotives,
steamers, factories, and houses. So lar as
the Pacific coast i8 concerned, it already
feels the effects of importa of coal from
Australia and British Columbia. It thus
appears that on every aide peculiar facilities
are afforded to foreigners to seize our coal
trade if the duty be put down, and
thia simply by reason of the difference between foreign wage ratea and
our own. The difference in cost to the consumer from the removal of the duty would
be slight in the first instance, the loss to
American labor and American capital would
be incalculable and the loss to the whole
people,in the last analysis, beyond measure.
To put coal on the free list is without
reason and against icaaon; and finds no
semblance of defence save in the unjustifiable desire to exploit a theory at the expense of the American people. The minority conclude their exhaustive report by
expressing their disapproval of the changes
proposed in the  administrative  part of the
act.

laco flounces which used to be worn are
now placed at the edge of the skirts, often
festooned with ribbon bows. They also
are Introduced round the hips, while triple flounces are made to cover the entire
skirt. Almost any shaped pleoo of lace ��*���-

to the capes, which aro of every form, but
mostly surround the yokes or taper from

Very dressy and at the same time femi-

render even a plain dress picturesque arid
attractive. In the cut is shown a particularly graceful affair in velvet and pearl
lace. As may be seen by studying tbeillus-

headed by a straight collar composed of
two folds of velvet, finished with an earlike
bow at the back, and thesmall tippet fluted
on the shoulders.
Tho fancy continues for translucent materials, such as laco grenadine, gauze and
the like, in black, to be worn over colored

Galloway and second assistant Miss Hart.
Remarkable proficiency in the pupils was
shown by their ready answers to the questions put to them iu the different subjects.
Mr. Shaw at the close of the exercites, on
behalf of tbe Nanaimo public schoolteachers,
presented Miss Pool on the eve of her departure from the school, with a beautiful
marble clock, accompanied with an address
in which the teachers expressed their appreciation of the recipient's good qualities,

THE PENGUINS.
The Peculiar Habits of These Queer Amphibious llirds.
These amphibious birds, found only In
southern latitudes, present to the spectator
a very singular appearance from the fact
tbat the leys, which are very short, are
placed so far back tbat the bird sits in a
perfectly erect position, while the wings
(quite destitute of feathers) are modified
Into paddles, useless indeed for flight, but
capable of being employed as an extra pair
of legs when the creature is iu haste to es-
capefrorn pursuit. At such times so rapid
:*re its movements that it might easily be
mistaken for a quadruped. Its general
mode of progression, however, is to sbulile
-���-���-      -~Mp.ll.W-gS
Vi>'VPii*i>*:"
THE PENGUIN,
along on the feet alone, the wings hanging
down like broken arms, tbe body giving a
half turn at every step aud the feet crossing each other.
Where penguins are found at all, tliey
are found in prodigious numbers, as at the
Falkland islands, where their dee]), re-
iw.iiant cries add greatly to the dreary desolation of the place. While on land their
habit of sitting together in long rows, with
their bluish backs contrasted with the
white breast, gives them a ludicrous resemblance to an infant school of white
aproned children. The female bird lays
only one egg, large anil of a grayish white
color. If disturbed during incubation she
will sbulile away at a rapid rate, rolling
the egg along between her feet till she
reaches a place of safety.
The solitary young bird is covered with
fluffy gray wool nnd is so abundantly fid
by both parents that it soon becomes almost too fat to move. They feed on cuttlefish aud various crustaceans. There are
many species of this bird, the crested variety being really handsome, its bright,
golden topknot, which can be erected at
pleasure, giving it a very conspicuous appearance. It abounds in dreary Patagonia
and is, like all penguins, a very noisy bird.
A City of Dullmakers.
At Sonneberg, which is in tbe heart of
Germany, all the Inhabitants are in the
business ot dol making���12,000 people are
all more or less dollmakers���and among
them they produce no fewer than 25,000,000
dozen doll babies every year. It is bard to
realize what an enormous quantity that is.
After this it sounds odd to say .that in
Sonneberg it takes bO persons to make a
doll. Vet such is the fact. In Germany
labor is subdivided as much as possible, or,
iu other words, a dol hunker does one little
thing from year's end to year's end, and
thus it conies about that it takes 8U people
to make a doll.
Little boys, when they enter the Sonneberg factories, spend a long time iu painting nails on dolls' fingers, for which they
are paid about 25 cents a week. Some girls
do nothing but fill bodies with chopped hay
or straw. Men puss their lives in painting
Dolly's lashes and brows, and others in putting rouge on ber cheeks. So it is with other
parts of a doll; each is done by one person.
The dolls' wigs are made by girls at Munich, ami their eyes come from a little town
only a few miles from Sonneberg and are
made by men in their own homes.
Endless are t.be varieties of dolls. Every
Sonneberg manufacturer has about 10(1 designs. Taste varies, and besides in exporting dolls many things have to be taken
into consideration. A wax one cannot be
sent to a very hot or a very oold country.
In tho former it would melt, in tbe latter
crack. Then if a doll has rubber joints
she cannot be sent a long sea voyage, for
on arrival at her destination she would lie
armless and legless, A sea journey also
takes the curl out of Dolly's hair and the
starch ont of her clothes. Fashion, moreover, is ��oustantly changing. A doll which
everybody, buys one season is not looked at
the next.
A Mysterious Disappearance.
It is reported by a gentleman who has recently returned from the locality that sis
Chinamen, who were washing gold on a
oreek at the south end of the island,
opposite Cape Flattery, have mysteriously disappeared. Their tools and
other property were found iu the camp just
as they left it, but nothing is known of the
cause of their disappearance. It is suspected that they were murdered and robbed,
and the bodies afterwards made away  with.
The Cowichan River Fatality.
Although a party kept up the search all
day yesterday the body of King, the logger
drowned on Tuesday evening in the Cowichan river, has not yet heen recovered. The
manner of tho occurrence seems to have
been that King was helping other men with
him break up a jam of logs. He got his
pike so firmly imbedded in one that he could
not extract it readily. As the jam began to
give the other loggers got ashore, and shouted to him to come bIbo, as the jam was
breaking. He still remained, trying to disengage his pole, and in another moment the
jam broke, and by the hurtling of the logs
King was thrown into the water and crushed under by the driving timber.

purpose of deciding the most momentous issue of his life. His private cab
was waiting at the gate ia the garden-
wall, but he did not dare to trust his
all-important despatch box there. He
brought it, with an apology, into the
drawing-room ami placed it by the side
of his chair, explaining the nature of its
contents. This was not lost upon Donovan, who, as usual, was in concealment
where he could hear every word.
Chester was pn Bsed Cor time, hi.��mind
was made up, his brain confounded by
tie new charm of a pale, suii ting mel-
ahcholy look upon Muriel's winning face.
He spoke out hia love frankly, passionately, madly. He pledged to this woman,
whom he had known but a little while,
and whose life was a sealed book to him
still, his name, his loyalty, his faith.
He knelt at her feet in the delirium of
his pa-siun, and implore*! her to take all
he had to give, ami return him ouly the
promise of her love. His sincerity was
so palpable, and she had seen so clearly
to what his constant visits tended, that
she felt neither surprise nor distrust,
She caught the ardour of his feelings,
and, though calmer than he, she underwent some moments of deep agitation.
Did she love him'.' No, not yet. Her
heart could not so soon be divorced from
the unworthy dead. But in time, in
brief time, she must respond to the intensity of his devotion, and love as he
loved. She realised this, she believed in
her soul, and her impulse was to take
this goodly gift from the hand of Heaven.
But she paused, and thoughts came to
her of things concerning her which he
���should know.
She rose, and, going to her secretaire,
took from a drawer a petition praying
for the release from prison of Thomas
Murdoch, then undergoing a term of
penal servitude for treason-felony,
"I am the daughter of Thomas Murdoch," she said as she placed the petition
in Chester's hands. "If you love me so
truly, save my father from this living
death. Give him back to me, and, 5
you still desire it, I will give myself to
you."
She told a sad story of the "distressful country;" she told of her inherited
sympathy with the down-trodden peasants, and exalted her Fenian father into
a patriot as meritorious as Garibaldi,
Kossuth, or William Tell: she told how
her life was dedicated to the liberation
of her martyred parent, and how her
mission in that house was to advance
the cause of her oppressed countrymen.
And Chester, delighted to have the
mystery cleared up with an explanation
consist,-a', with the lofty estimate of her j
character which he had formed, flung ;
away from him all political prejudice,
and undertook the forwarding of the
petition  for her father's release.
The petition was voluminous and nam-
erously Bigned, and seemed at first too
bulky to go into bis despatch-box. She !
left him for a few moments to get it
bound up in a convenient parcel. While
engaged iu this somewhat difficult task
she was joined by Donovan,
She knew that he hail overheard all,
and expected some upbraiding; but he
remained grimly silent, merely offering
to prepare the parcel for her. She surrendered her task to him. ami returned
to the drawing-room, eager to have a
few words with Chester alone.
And there again  they pledged their
lives to each other, the condition of the
bond  being her   father's  release,   upon  I
which she would abandon to him the *
present object of her existence,  and be- !
come a simple, domestic, loving English
wife.
A servant brought tho package to the
drawing-room.      It    was   remarkably j
weighty,   but   admirably   compressed.
Chester got it easily into his despatch- '
box, and turned the key upon it and its '
precious companions.    He then took a
tenderly passionate leave of his betroth-  <
ed, and started in haste for the House.
Muriel wandered back thoughtfully to
the drawing-room.
This step which she had so impulsively
taken was a breach of the covenant she
had entered into with the brotherhood,   j
and the confession of   her mission to .
a political  opponent  might���probably
would���entail   upon  her   some serious
consecpieiices.  Donovan wa* there as the   ,
representative of her masters.    He had
not protested against   her action.    He  j
had   even    assisted   it.      From  that it   !
might be hoped that ho���and through
him the society���might not disapprove.
Hut his manner had been strange,  and
she felt it desirable to discuss  tho question without delay.
With this intention she passed into the
library, where, as she had expected, she
found tho conspirator immersed in poli-
ticiil atl'airs.
He affected to bo excessively occupied,
and returned but short responses to the
remarks with which she endeavoured to
start the conversation. He would express no opinion upon her conduct. She
knew the nature of her pledges to the
brotherhood. They might see fit to strip
her of home and means, or they might
not. It was in their power to do so. He
must make his report. His tone was so
quietly sinister that she grew heart-sick,
and rose to leave him. As sho did so
her eye fell upon some folios of signatures lying by tho side of his desk. He
would have prevented her from taking
thum up, but she was too quick for him.
A glance told her that those folios were
a part of the petition she had confided to i
Cecil Chester's care.
A quick question, and from Donovan
an evasive reply, accompanied by a peculiarly fiendish smile, and her dark misgiving was confirmed. Like a whirlwind sho rushed from the room and
from the house, and was soon speeding
towards Westminster, to save her lover's
life.
CHAPTER XXIX
TIIK I1KSPATCH-BOX.
Chester bowled along towards
Westminister in ins private hansom at
a "spanking" pace, an 1 arrived in good
time at the members' entrance. His
thoughts had been occupied so exclusively with Muriel O'Connor that it gave
him tc surprise, a-s he stepped out upon
the pavement, to see a veiled and cloak
ed w** nan's figure that borea strongre
���semblance to her in form and hearing
It seemed only a continuance of bis
dream that every object should, to his
fancy, bear some suggestion of her.
But he st ired in amazement when the
cloaked figure approached him suddenly,
and die dosed itself as Muriel.
She greeted him with a kind of forced
gaiety that ill conccalu.l an excitement
whi'-h Seemed to have deprived her of
self-possession���almost of reason.
His Ni-toiiishuienl at finding her there
w��Ib surpass.',! by the bewildering im-
pressioti made by her strange manner,
so utterly different from that of the
calm, frank Irish trirl from whom he
had so reci ntly parted.
His first impulse was to conceal her
from the public eye, and the readiest
asylum was presented by the open door
of his private cab He simply handed
her in, closed the door, and begged her
toexcusehim while he went into the
House. He then instructed the driver
to drive into Palace Yard andawait him
there; then plunged hurriedly into the
corridor that led to tne lobby, intent
upon ascertaining how many moments
he could spare to his betrothed
Muriel O'Connor found herself driven
away in the cab, alone with the despatch-
box that contained the object which
Dennis Donovan had substituted for the
petition in favor of Thomas Murdoch.
Presently the cab drew up in Palace
Yard, here was an opportunity. Scarcely pausing to think, conscious only of a
spurring eagerness to shun questioning
and explanation, she took the despatch'
box beneath the folds of her cloak,
alighted from the cab. and, making some
explanation to the man, walked rapidly
across the road to Westminster Station,
and Bed home with her prize by the first
train that came along.
Meanwhile Chester had encountered
his chief in the lobby, ready for the momentous debate that was to take place
that night. The Right Honourable
Thomas Cruikshank'was highly primed
upon the ensuing question, and proposed
to lead tin' debate with a speech of
startling importance. He anxiously inquired of Chester whether certain notes
which had been prepared were ready to
hand. Chester replied that they were
safe in his despatch-box. He was requested to produce them without loss of
time.
Remembering that be had left the box
in his cab, Chester rushed through the
hall to Palace Yard, his mind torn between anxiety about the debate and
solicitude for the woman he loved.
There stood the cab according to orders,
the high mettled gray impatiently pawing the stones. With an apology for delay upon his lips, and bis mind hastily
preparing explanations and excuses for
the inevitable postponement of an interview. Chester looked into the cab.
It was empty.
Muriel i 'Connor was gone, and a
second glance told him that the despatch-
box was gone also.
He paused thunderstruck; then turned
to the coachman and made breathless
inquiries. The man was startled by his
master's pallor and extreme discern iture,
and gave quickly and concisely an account of the cloaked lady's proceedings.
"0, it's all right !" cried ( he: t ir.with a
sickness of misgiving at his heart. He
darted "fl in pursuit of the fair rubber.
Rushing like a ma . . in E ��� in , oiiit to
point, he traced Muriel to the Westminster Station, and returned, staggering
in bis distress, like a drunken man, to,
the presence of his chief.
Mr. Cruikshank Heard with feelings of
the utmost dismay and indignation that
the documents upon which he relied for
the opening of the debate had been mislaid, lost, stolen by some unknown hand.
The absence of these papers was aserious
matter; to their aid he looked for some
of the chief points in his speech, and,
knowing till opposition to beeneounter-
ed, he trembled for the fate of the Bill if
it were badly introduced.
With calm severity he requested
Chester to seek for and recover the
papers at all costs, hinting, as Chester
knew full well, that if they fell into the
hands of the Opposition it would be a
very serious matter to the .Ministry.
Chester professed to have a clue; let him
follow it without a moment's delay.
Crushed and mortified, the young
secretary left the House, and was borne
at a furious pace back to the villa at Regent's l'ark.
Muriel had got the start of him by
some five-and-twenty minutes, and her
horse was an iron one. its breath of steam.
But tbe train rumbled tediously from
station to station, and as she sat contemplating the fast looked d tspatoh-box,
a new horror took possession **f her.
A young mother and several sweet little
children got into the compartment. One
little'baby-girl toyed waywardly with
the horrible thing, With a shuddering
impulse .Muriel thrust the child away,
and its mother drew it to her bosom in
resentment of the seeming unkindness
of their fellow-passenger, With staring
eyes and a soul shaking with apprehension, Muriel journeyed on, watching
with a terrified fascination this simple
structure of leather aud metal.
It grew before her gaze into hideous
proportions; it seemed to her a veritable
thunderbolt of doom, threatening a desperate death to herself and many, many
joyous and innocent oreatu es; and of
thus*' who entered and who departed
from the carriage, not a few thought her
insane lis they watched hor draws and
ghatUy features.
That box! that bax!   Her heart  b
furiously; her tongue clave to thi   'oi
her  mouth; her eyes   Beeined  .-	
from their sockets.    Should she leave it

At the meeting of the Debating Club in
the Y.M.C.A. rooms last night the following members were present: Capt. Dempster, C. Dempster, T. VV. Haslam, P.
Harper, A. Anderson, H. Aitken, J. Dodd,
E. Freure. The paper under discussion
was "A Chinaman's View of Christianity,"
which was read by Mr, Haslam in place of
Mr. Sinclair who was not present. The
paper iu itself aet out very lucidly the
reasons why the Chinaman objected to
Christianity and very clearly picked to
pi* ces the different sections of Protestantism, finally arriving at the conclusion that a
heathen was a considerably better mon than
the average Christian. Sides were taken iu
the debate and the discussion was both interesting and amusing. The next debate
will be on the resolution that our legialators
be paid, and will take place next Thursday,
