The Provincial eleotion campaign is now
fairly opened in thia city. there has been
a strong feeling existing amongst many of
the representative miner* IU business men
for a long time past that our interests have
been sadly neglected heretofore by the pre*
tent representative, a*>d that a chinge was
imperative, if this place is to hold that posi
tion in the Provinoe whioh tier importance
demands. With this objeot in view a preliminary meeting was oonveaW on the 20th
of February in the Forester**'.*, Hall for the
purpose of organization.' An adjournment
was made till the 27'h, whe^L'hn following
executive officers weie a'ppo'*rtteil:
President, Mayor Quennvll; Vice President, E. McKinnell; Secretary Treasurer,
F. MoB. V oung; Executive --Oommittee, H.
A. Simpson and W. Dick (Middle Ward); C.
McCutcheon and Aid. J. Dobeson (North
Ward); G. Churchill and, A. McGregor
(South Ward).
The above meeting was largely attended
and represented every branch of trade and
labor in the oity.
Laat Night's Heating
was the outcome of the previous meetings,
and called together for the purpose of perfecting the work of organization and selecting a candidate. The attendance was much
larger than that of the previous meeting,
each Waul bring ilioi **ug"ly represent! d.
After the appointment of Ward Committees
and other routine business, the question of
selecting a candidate waa next discussed.
Mr. Gilbert McKionell proposed, seconded
by Mr. John Freeman
Mr. James MoGregor
as the candidate of the association. The
motion was received with prolonged applause, and when put by the ohairman waa
made unanimous by a standing vote, Mr.
McGregor thanked tbe meeting for the
honor conferred upon him_��nd promised to
���� fctltehfa^m^v^-hfcSOw Ms ��1eetion,
Although Mr. McGregor ia well known to
the older residents of this city, a ahort
aketch of hia career will be of interest at
the present time. He has been known as
one of our most enterprising citizens, and
has conducted a successful business for
neariy three years past.
About 34 years ago Mr, James McGregor
was born near Victoria, and has been a
resident of Nanaimo since be was six years
of age. He is thus a native of the place and
soil, which in itself is an advantage, as no
man feels for another country as he does for
the place be is born in. He naturally identifies himself with his birthplace and considers its in'crests as a birthright.
Fiom an early age Mr. McGregor has
worked in the mines in different capacities,
rising from minor employments to those of
the most responsible position. He passed
an examination before the authoized board
und -a a certificated underground manager
of mines. Fur eight years he served as underground manager of the Sou'hfield mines,
and in that time gave every satisfaction,
both to employers and employees. Upon
his leaving the position with whioh he was
so long associated, his fellow workmen presented him with a very handsome and costly
gold watch and chain as a memento of their
affection aud regard.
The kindly feeling whioh waa then evidenced, still remains, and Mr. McGregor is
regarded as both a personal friend and a
friend of labor, by those worthy workmen
who form the majority of the population of
Nanaimo. HiB popularity amongst his fellow
men remains un .bated. Some three years
sinoe our new and popular candidate for
parliamentary work,*i<not honors, entered
iiiiii business on his o*n ccuuut. The sue
oess which has attended him in his new
venture, is token enough of a business
ability and geueral commercial grasp which
eminently fits him tn represent the interests
of au industrial city like Nanaimo.
To not know Mr. J. McGregor ih : his city
is to argue oneself unknown. He is known
personally to almost every voter in the com
munity, whether miner, trader or of any of
tbe professions. He is looked upon yet by
the working miners as one of themselves,
and to this he responds with fraternal feeling.
It is seldom that the choice is made of
such a suitable caudidate iu any community.
Mr. McGregor is not extreme, neither is he
an all round man���that synoymity of utter
uselesBness. That thoroughness which has
carried him to preeminence amongst the
citizens of Nanaimo, will enable him to most
fitly and capably represent the constituency,
in which he has made his own fortunes and
whose fortunes he haB helped to make.
Under the wing of Mr. McGregor in the
Provincial Parliament, the interests of
Nanaimo will not be allowed to flig nor its
prospects to suffer. He has lhe innate
knowledge of the requirements of the community���a knowledge and experience, which
ia now submitted to the voters of  this city.
In passing, it may be mentioned that the
candidate's brother, Mr. William McGregor
is now the manager of the New Vancouver
Coal Company's Mines. From hard practical experience as an underground worker,
and later aa a thriviug merchant, Mr.
Jamea McGregor possesses the qualifications
whioh it would be hard to find in any other
candidate platformed for the majority and
sensible portion of the constituency.
A glance at the committee lists published
below, will convince auy thinking man that
Mr. McGregor has the support of tbe lead
ing men in Nanaimo. It is impossible for
any other candidate to come forward with
the practical and common sense backing
whioh the new candidate haa.
Mr. McGregor starts to win aud there
will be no uncertain voioe about bia intentions, purposes and endeavors which will all
be concentrated to the ultimate advantage
of Nauaimo.

PASSED ITS SECOND BEADING.
By a Party Division of 21  to 10���Grant
Votes With the  Government���Beaven
Finds But Little Fault-Kitchen, Cotton and Sword Dumb as Oysters���No
Prohibition in tbe Honse.
Victoria, March 2.���[Speoial}���The Redistribution Bill passed its second  reading
in the   Legislature  to-night,  on  a  party
division of 21 to 10, with Grant included in
the  majority.    The  second  reading  was
moved by the Hon. Mr. Vernon,  who  very
clearly   explained   the   main    principles
of       the       bill.       With       respect    to
cities,       he     showed    that   it    having
been decided that when a fair proportion ,of
representation   was   nine members, it had
been distributed on a basis ot one for every
4,000 of the population, the   other 24 were
divided amongst the rural  cons'itue* c!es iu
most   equitable   proportions.     He invited
suggestions from both sides of the House as
to improvements in details of the measure.
Beaven had very little to say in criticism,
his main argument being that the bill perpetrated the power of  majority.   He, and
those who followed * oo   his* side, devoted a
good deal of criticism to the provisions for
the collecting of votes. V
The  other   Opposition    speakers  were
Brown, Semlin and Milne.
On the Government side, Baker, Pooley
and Turner also spoke.

GLADSTONE'S RETIREMENT.
The G. O. M. Has an Audience With tha
Queen at Windsor.
London, March 2.���Before leaving Downing street to go tu Windsor,   Mr. Gladstone
received Sir William Harcourt,   Chancellor
of the Exchequer, John Morley, Chief   Secretary for Ireland, and a few other intimate
friends.     Throughout    his    drive   to   the
station he spoke but little, and after   entering the railway carriage he leaned back in a
oornor, leaned his   head   on   his   hand and
closed his eyes.    He   seemed   to   be lost in
meditation and gave only laconic answers to
Mrs. Gladstone's remarks.    A   orowd   had
gathered at the   station   and   workingmen,
railroad officials, small pol i I ioians   and   reporters filled the platform.    All showed the
deepest respect  for   the   eld   man.    Those
nearest the train stood uncovered and silent
watching him intently.    Hardly a word was
utteied until the train began to move. Then
everybody     on     the     platform     cheered
and    waved     his     hat.      Mr.    Glads one
started from   his   corner   and   bowed and
smiled from the window as the  train  drew
away.    The 2,000 or moi e persona who had
assembled at the   Windsor station  oueeiod
repeatedly when Mr. and   Mrs.  Gladstone
alighted.    Mr. Gladstone smiled and bowed,
then entered the royal   carriage  with   his
wife   and   proceeded to   the   castle.    The
streets through which the oarriage passed,
were   filled   with   men   and   women   who
greeted the Premier with cheers and waving
of hats and handkerchiefs.    Mr.  Gladstone
had an audience   with   the   Queen   before
dinner and told her of his intention to retire
from office.    The formal act of resignation,
however, may be delayed   until  after   the
meeting of   the   Council, which   the Queen
will hold to-morrow.   All the Ministers will
attend this   Council, at which   the   formal
prorogation of Parliament is to be enacted.
There are but  two  topics in the  political
clubs, and   journal   reports  this  evening;
these are, the retirement of the Premier and
the choioe of   his   successor.    Rumors  and
surmises   of  all   sorts   are   repeated from
mouth to mouth, but news   with any noteworthy   foundation in fact, is very   scarce.
The newspapers   are   printing  columns of
varied speculation, but most of this matter
is the result   of  palpable   guesswork   and
throws no light on the Cabinet situation.
The Daily News says editorially thia
morning: " We most deeply and earnestly
deplore that Mr. Gladstone should have felt
it incumbent upon himself to resign. No
Liberal desired it, and nobody could see any
necessity for it. The whole party would
have preferred retainiog him upon whatever
terms he might have suggested to substituting any other man, however, able and
eminent." The News discusses Mr. La-
bouchere's letter to Mr. Majoribanks, and
refutes every objection of the Radical leader
to the choioe of a premier from the House of
oloeethe-deUtoaftwfcitonen;
Sword had delivered themselves, but think-
ing to compel them to g.t up, and  as   they
would not rise, the question   was   put  and
the bill passed its seoond reading.
Keith's motion to forbid the introduction
of liquors into the Legislative Assembly was
voted down this afternoon. The members
taking ground tbat it waa altogether un
called for, the matter being within the
Speaker'a juriadiction. In this meantime
Government having had its attention called
to reports of abuses in this connection, had
already given orders to ensure that no in
toxicants shall be sold or supplied in the
lunch room.
WORLD'S FAIR JURY.
Grants  Highest  Award  to  Dr.  Price's
Cream Baking Powder.      ,
Chicacio, March 2.���Ou the analysis and
recommendation of Dr. Wiley, Chief United
States Government Chemist at Washington,
and greatest living au'hority on food products, the World's Fair jury today gave
the highest award to Dr. Price's Cream
Baking Powder for-strength, purity and excellence. This conclusively settles the
question of superiority. Dr. Wiley rejected the alum powders, stating to the
World's Fair jury that he considered them
unwholesome.

presence at the embassy will be interpreted
undoubtedly as evidence of tho increase of

The Russian Gorman Troaty.
Berlin, March 2.���Count von Doenhoff,
Conservative deputy for an East Prussian
constituency, addressed an electoral meeting
in Ku*nig��burg this evening, concerning the
Russian German treaty. He said that the
treaty should be passed to relax the strain
between Berlin and St. Petessburg, if for no
other reason. Prince Bismarck has told him
recently that the rejection of the treaty
would mean war with Russia. The Reiohstag commission which is to oonsider the
treaty waB organized this evening with Dr.
Hammacher, National Liberal, in the chair.
Dr. Hammacher said that he hoped the
work on the treaty would be completed in
five sittings. The second reading of the
treaty will take plaoe on Maroh 12th.

sensible," says the News "to reject a good
premier because he .happens to be an Earl.
The News says it has information that there
is no reason why Mr. Gladstone should not
recover his eyesight entirely in a few
months. Advanced age, it adds, is no
hindrance to the oure ot such a complaint as
his.
Tbe Daily Chronicle says: "Mr. Gladstone informally resigned last evening. The
formal procedure will follow immediately.
The Queen offered him a peerage, which he
deolined. Lord Rosebery has received a
formal summons to Windsor. He will have
the loyal and enthusiastic support of the
overwhelming majority of the Liberal party.
The attitude of the Irish leadera has been,
strictly proper and scrupulous. They declined the urgent solicitations of the promoters of an abortive revolt, but at the
same lime they have given everybody to
understand that their support will depend
upon the attitude of the new leader, whoever he may be. As regards a successor to
Mr. Morley, who, it is generally believed,
will vacate the Irish secretaryship, they
have very strong views. Their tint choice
will fall upon Herbert Gladstone; their
second upon Mr. Aoland.
The Daily Chronicle says of Mr. Labouchere, he has alienated the confidence of every
man who has a steady conception of Liberalism. He is doing his party an eminent
disservice
The Times welcomes the prospect of Lord
Rosebery's succession, saying that no other
member of tbe government is equally trusted. The writer predicts a friction between
Lord Rosebery and Sir William Harcourt
in case the latter consents to serve under
the new premier.
The Standard says: "Such a farewell as
Mr. Gladstone is bidding to-day, appeals
with singular force to general sympathy.
One of the greatest and most interesting
figures of the century is passing away from
public life. His opponents, with unfeigned
cordiality wish him the peaceful enjoyment
of honorable repose."

Siwash Ancient Art.
There has been unearthed from the ancient
Indian burying ground at Lytton, B.C., two
orookery plates, with scenes of Siwash life
rudely painted upon them. The Siwash
cemetery is prehistoric. The Iudians in the
surrounding country state that their most
ancient traditions do not tell of a burying
ground in that vicinity. The city of the
ancient dead is white with human bones
that the ages have turned to lime, but jaw
bones witb perfectly preserved teeth and
human skulls are abundant. One skull has
been found running to a point from the
bridge of the nose to the crown of the head,
and measuring nine inches from the brow to
the crown. The countless arrow heads are
of agate, beautifully formed and very large.
Many stone bowls have also been dug up.
Some with human heads carved upon them.

Paris
The Trinatarian Arlthomanlac,
A victim of a curious mania, was
sented at the last meeting of the
Sooiety of Biology by a member, M. Mag-
nan. A "degenerate arithomaniac" is what
the unfortunate man is called by the learned. He is the slave of the figure 3. In
order to avert some terrible misfortune conjured up by bis brain, he feels compelled at
all times to group by series of threes his
acts, and all the things and events whioh
concern him. If he has a toothache he goes
and has three teeth pulled out. The other
day he purloined, ai one of the open shops
called bag tars, threi- coi kscrews, and having
pocketed them, he crossed three streetB and
threw the three corkporews into the third
sewer grating he came across. He would be
a .noBt expensive individual to ask to "take
something."
The Highest Authority in America.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper authority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Teleoram:
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of The Daily
Teleoram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
why it is that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo."
The Teleoram job plant is now in position to do all kinds of job printing on the
shortest notice. We have a large stock ot
all kinds of papers on hand and will guarantee to suit our customers in stock and work.

_ Tribute to tho An* tore Training Which
Produced a Man Llku Tryon.
���flo our minds the charm of Admiral
Try-on's bearing in tho hour of hia fnte ia
the perfection of the sysfpui which for
Centuries has bred meu c*n;ai;1e of his
conduct and hia death. They have not
had hia opportunity of being visiole, not
his strangely scenic surroundings, not
perhaps the temperament which could
have inspired them tc that farewell in
the moment of disappearance, but there
have been hundreds oilmen in the navy,
and even in the merchant service, who
wonld have died as bravely as he did.
It is the tradition of both services���
not, we think, the order���that the highest in rank on a ship in peril must be the
last to quit the vessel; that, aa occurred
a few years ago, even a stowaway, who
ia almost a criminal in sailors' eyes, must
take precedence of the captain in securing safety. The origin of the rule is, we
fancy, policy���that the state or the owner be protected by the captain's authority to the last���but it has become an etiquette and a pride, and in the records of
hundreds of wrecks you will find few in
which it waa ever broken. "The captain was the last to leave the ship" is the
end of almost every telegram ot marine
disaster.
In other words.disciplinehas oontipned
for centuries under the pressure of the
same necessities, and the same ideas, haa
extinguished in a class by no means devoid either of faults or vices, a most natural and tempting form of selfishness
has induced a whole series of men, many
of them hardly educated, to face a slow
���nd painful form of death rather than
fell in the performance of a professional
dnty. That is a wonderful result of training, and it is one which makes those who
see it clearly doubt whether the modern
world is altogether in the right path.
The old ideal for the formation of
character was discipline, hardship, pressure, alike from the law and from teachers aud from opinion, and it certainly
produced many of the virtues, especially
that one of obedience, which the world
everywhere but on shipboard���whoro
there are few unrealities and men carry
their lives in their hands���has taken to
despising. The modern idea ia that discipline even for children is an oppressive
thing; that it turns men into machines,
and it quenches individuality���that it ii,
in short, unpleasant, whereas pleasant-
ness is the end of life.
We see the result of ttie change in the
disappearance of many forms of oppression, and a lighter atmosphere for men
to move in, and we see it also in the
slow disappearance of many noble elements in character. The old system,
working with good material, produces
as its perfect result Admiral Tryon. The
new, working also on the right material,
produces the British agitator.
Admiral Tryon was no doubt a brave
man and gentleman without help from
the service or ita traditions, bnt the
service had annealed his character into
what it was, something for a nation to
be proud of, which would hardly have
been exhibited or have existed amid the
indiscipline and softness of civil life.
When one hears oi such a man so meeting such aa end, it is difficult not to
doubt whether liberty as now interpreted ia such a perfectly good thing;
whether instant obedience to command
is not better training; whether pressure
from all sides, from service rules, opinion and hardship together, does not weld
men into something worthier of tbe aspirations which, while men hare *9C��-
���elsnces, they never quite gsm rid <A���

THS SILVER QUESTION.
News, it is stated, has been received by
the Mexican eovernment from its representative in London, that England, Germany
and France and about to take the initiative
in convening a monetary conference to determine the future status of silver, and to
arrange for each nation to buy a certain
portion of the white metal every year for
coinage purposes. It is assumed that all
tbe great nations of the world, and especially the United States, will be represented.
This iB important news, if true. We said
some time ago that the British Government,
in consequence of the financial difficulties of
tbe Government of India, arising from tbe
continued fall io the value of the rupee,
would soon be compelled to take action
looking towards the international remone-
1 isttion of silver. If the news from Mexico
referred to above is well-founded, it would
appear that the Bri'ish Government has
begun to take act ion in the matter sooner
than we anticipated. It seems to us, however, that the proposal, that each of the
nations represented at the conference shall
agree to purohase every year a specified
quantity of Bilver for coinage purposes, is
nnnecessary, and only likely to lead to disagreement. What the conference ought to
do is to agree on the international remone-
tization of silver, after fixing its value in
terms of gold, and also consent to the
re-opening of the state mints to tbe free
coinage of silver in any amount, leaving the
various governments free to buy just what
silver they needed every year for coinage
purposes, and no more. If silver were re*
monetized by international agreement, after
fixing by similar means its value in terms of
gold, and if state mints generally were
thrown open to its free coinage in any
amount desired, all the rest would follow as
a matter of course. It is hardly necessary
to say that this would be of very great advantage to the mining interests of British
Columbia. It would also, we think, restore
prosperity to farming interests on this con
tinent and throughout the world at Urge,
by gradually increasing the prices receive,!
for farm produce of every sort, and by putting a stop to the continual increase in the
value of gold, which benefits none but capi
talis te with money out at mortgage. The
existing state of things is ruining farmers
who have borrowed money on mortgage of
their farms, and who find it harder every
day to pay the principal and interest thereon in consequence of the continued fall in
the market price of their produce, chiefly
through the slow and subtle enhancement
in the value of gold, which has been proceeding for thirty years past and more.
There onght to be a stop put to this without
more delay, and nothing but the international remonetization of silver and its free
coinage will do so. The restoration of
the prosperity of the farmers throughout
the world would also be followed as certainly as day follows the night by a universal
revival of trade, and commerce. When the
farming in'er'st, droops all other interests
droop with it. There houM h'so bo a great
revival in th, il* n and for lab,.r, and better
wages would I e p * 11, I he silver question,
that, is the question of the international
remonetization of silver after its value in
terms of gold has been fixed by mutual
agreement of the nations, aud the opening of
the state mints to its free coinage in any
quantity, ia by far the most Important
question of the day to every interest that
could be named, except perhaps the interests of capitalists who have money out at
mortgage at long terms.
The Presidential election in Brazil took
place on Wednesday, and appears to have
been conducted in a very orderly manner,
without excitement or riot of any sort. M.
Morales, the president of the Senate, waa
the leading candidate. It is not yet known,
outside of Brazil at any rate, what the result was. From the sensible way in which
the election was conducted, there is still
hope that republioan institutions, and an
orderly government under them, may yet
be established in Brazil. It is to be hoped
also that the eleotion of a new president
will be followed by the cessation of the civil
war. The outbreak of yellow fever at Rio
de Janeiro is developing to serious proportions. The number of oases per day is
stated to average about 200. The attack of
Yellow Jack is likely to be a much more
serious and fatal than a bombardment of the |
As official high in the service of tbe
German Government has written to the
burgomaster of Gottingen, saying that the
emperor is desirous of being associated with
the project to build a tower at Gottingen
where Bismarck studied before he entered
the army. The tower to be named after
Bismarck and is to be a monument in bis
honor. The emperor has transmitted 500
marks, equivalent to about $100, to be
devoted to a memorial tablet. The reconciliation between Bismarok and the emperor
seems to be a genuine one.
Tub annual meeting of the directors of
the Colonial Institute was held on Tuesday
evening last. The report presented states
that the movement for increasing the trade
between the mother country and the colonies is taking a firmer hold on the merchants
and manufacturers of Great Britain. It ia
further stated that the promotion of com*
merce between Australia and Canada evokes
the deepest interest and approval. The
proposed British cable across the Pacific,
between Canada and Australia, was also referred to and most heartily endorsed. The
Colonial Institute promises to be exceedingly useful in promoting colonial interests in
Great Britain, and in making the colonies
better known to the British people.
Mb. Kitchen on Thursday moved the
second reading of the Wide Tires Act
Amendment Bill, whioh had already been
voted down, but had on motion been restored to the order paper. The motion was
lost on a division of 10 yeas to 16 nays. As
it seems desirable for the sake of the roads
of the Province, which are made worse than
they need be by ihe use of narrow tires,
that these should gradually be abolished, we
would suggest that the House pass a short
bill providing that all wagon wheels made
after a certain date, aay the 1st of May
next, shall be provided with tires of a proper
width, but that owners of wagons, which
now have narrow tires on their wheels,
shall be at liberty to take out permits from
township clerks to use such wagons on the
public roads for a further fixed period, say
of five years, which in most cases would be
sufficient to wear the wagons out. In this
way in a few years all the wagons in the
Province would he provided with wide tires,
and all loss would be avoided in making the
change.
It appears that the Daily News, the
leading Liberal organ in London, still insists
that the cabinet situation is unohanged. If
the News means that Mr. Gladstone has not
handed in his resignation, and that consequently no change in its personnel has yet
taken place, it is quite correct; but if it
means that a change is not impending it is
wrong, and is only trying to mislead the
people. It is cot denied that Mr. Gladstone's sight aud hearing are both failing.
If only his sight was affected he might, if
willing to sacrifice that important sense,
continue to hold the position he oocupies
for an indefinite time; but he cannot do so
with both sight nnd hearing gone. Besides,
it is not lilt* ly that he will be willing to
sacrifice his sight even to his ambition. If
the doctors advise, as they appear to have
done, that if he is to recover snd retain
his sight an operation must soon
be performed to remove the cataraot on his
eye, he will no doubt submit to the operation, and this of itself will necessarily involve his retirement from the premiership
and from public life also for a time at least.
As for the effect of his retirement on th.
fortunes of Home Rule, no man of sei
among the Unionists supposes that the
Liberals will in consequence abandon th
measure. All the branches of the Gladstonian party are too deeply commit ed to
it to do ao. Besides if they di 1 they would
inBtantly be deserted by their Irish allies
and turned out of office. The danger for
the Liberals is that without Mr. Gladstone's
personal assistance in the approaohinggeueral
election they may be defeated in spite of all
their efforts, and the ministry that will succeed Mr. Gladstone's be forced to resign.
This is no visionary danger,and this is what
the Liberals have now to face if, as seems
inevitable, Mr. Gladstone is forced to retire
even temporarily. As for the News' foolish
advooacy of Home Rule, it is only another
instance of the party madness which has
'taken possession of the Liberals, chiefly in
consequence of Mr. Gladstone's folly in
making himself the ally and practically the
slave of the Irish Home Rulers. Personally
he may be ao amiable man, but history will
not forgive him for hia want of patriotism
to England.

INQUEST    EVIDENCE   ON    THE DEATH OF MB.
VATER.
The inquest on the unfortunate death of
the late Mr. Ohas. Vater was held on Thursday at 1 o'clock at the court house.
Engineer Brennan was the first to be
���worn. He testified that he was in charge
of the engine that day, 24th Feb., 1894. He
was running at the rate of five to six miles
an hour. Was not sure bell was ringing
when deceased was atruok. He had noticed
him approaoh the track, stop and look in
an opposite direotion. It seemed to him
(Brennan) as if deceased was looking towards the company's weigh scales. He then
turned his head, at the same time stepping
on to the track. Cross-examined by coroner
���He believed it possible deoeased could
hear whistle. By juryman���I oould not say
if the bell rang or not. I am so accustomed
to it not to have taken any particular notice. Any ordinary man should have been
able to hear whistle from company's coal
track crossing. I saw him approaching and
kept my eye on him and oould have stopped
the train if I had known he was going to
walk on the truck, I am not justified in
stopping because a man is approaching.
To Coroner: I stopped the train within
tbe length of three box curs.
Dr. Eberts gave evidence as to the injuries received. His opinion was that
deceased died from fracture of the skull
-base.
Fireman James Clark said he did not see
Vater, as he was looking towards the
machine shop. He rang the boll at the ooal
crossing and oontinued ringing it to the
Comox road crossing. He did not see deceased before he was struck, seeing him for
the first time after the train had stopped.
He did not see anything ahead.
To Constable Stephenson: I was looking
toward the maohiue shop to see if coal train
was coming it waB my duty to do so. Could
not have seen deoeased coming towards
track at right angles only if in a direct line.
To juryman Rooney: Will not swear bell
waB ringing when he was atruok. I am
supposed to ring when going through town
or over crossings. I have known several
people to endanger themselves.
Walter Jones deposed as to having sold
deceased some shoes a few minutes previous.
He noticed nothing wrong. Deoeased was
in his usual health and was not deaf to the
best of his knowledge. Had known him
about six years. He was not drunk. Always knew him to be a steady man.
James Shaw, painter, sworn: I saw the
accident. I waa on Comox road between
crossing and meat market. I do not know
whether I knew deoeased or not. Not sufficiently to recognize him. I saw acoldent.
I was od the Comox road between ths meat
market and orossing. I saw deceased standing close to the track. He seemed to me to
jump on to the front of  the  engine.   He
was holding on to tho signal staff with his
left hand and had a parcel in his right. He
seemed to be swaying to and fro as if either
getting on or off. It was all I saw till I
saw him on the track.
John Belyea, provincial constable, said: I
was coming down from Nanoose. I was
just at the turning of the road by the section house and saw deceased coming from
Jones' store towards the track as the train
was orossing over the coal traok. He waa
looking toward the train and had a parcel
under his right arm and saluted me with his
left Baying, "hello Jack." I answered
"hello Charlie." He was about 100 feet
from the crossing. I turned toward the
Wellington Hotel and saw no more of him.
To Juror: Whistle blew opposite Diver
Lake and bell rang till train reached coal
crossing. Could not say if it waa ringing at
wagon crossing.
To Constable Stephenson: I am confident
he saw the train coming. There is a switch
turning to the left, coming from Nanaimo
between ooal crossing and wagon crossing.
I am of an opinion he must have thought
train was going that way to station.
Jury returned a verdict accidental death,
adding a rider exonerating the engineer
from all blame having dor.c his best to avert
the catastrophe.
COMOX ITEMS.
A Clever Customs Swindle.
Quebec, March 2.���One of the moat clever
customs swindles ever perpetrated has just
oome to light in this city. For the past
eight months, oases, supposed to oontain
merchandise, have been arriving at the
custom house here in bond, addressed to
"Charles Hartmann, Quebec, Canada." No
one ever called for them und no clue to
their ownership oould be obtained. Recently, Amerioan Consul Speuce took the
matter up, and when the oases were opened
nothing but a lot ot old paper with a few
bricks were found. Some one had been
shipping goods to a certain New York address in bond. When these goods arrived,
the contents of the cases were changed and
the cases resbipped to some other address in
foreign parts. In this way, thousands of
dollara' worth of gooda have been -received
in New York or other states, and no duty
paid on them. The trick must have been
performed with the knowledge and assistance of some of the United States officials.
Comox will revel in a calico ball after
Lent. Meantime, and during Lent, it had
a very successful maiquerade ball, which included personations of all nationalities, races
and conditions.
Mr. Fraser, ex-Customs officer, who lately
imperilled his life by swallowing some car-
bolio acid, is now out of danger and in a fair
way to recovery.
THE PBOVINCIAL CAPITAL.
Great  Sensation   Over  Bank   Failure���
Petitions From Plumper's
Victoria, Maroh 3.���[Special]���As an
outcome of the case of the alleged poisoning
at Plumper's Paaa the investigation into
whioh resulted in the oomplete vindication
of post master Collinson against whom
suspicion was directed, two petitiona are
being circulated amongst the residents of
Mayne island. The one to Supt. Hussey,
asking that officer McNeill be removed from
the island; the other to Premier Davie requests that William Robson be divested of
bis little authority aa a justice of the peaoe.
This city had its biggest sensation for
Borne time, thia morning, in the fact of the
doors   of  bankers   Green,   Woriook k Oo. *
being dosed, and a notice posted saying ihat *
payment had been stopped.    It is saiu  that I
the failure is largely due to the  withdrawal
of some   $200,000   recently, by   one of the'
partners.   The statements show an excess of
assets over liabilities   and   expresses   confidence that tbe full amount of the assets will
be realized, if the firm ia given  time.   The
poated notioe reada aa follows:
Owing to the reflecting aotion of the late
financial depression in the United States,
followed by the steady reduction of deposits,
together with the refusal of the local
chartered banks to render us any assistance
regardless of tbe securities offered, we find
ourselves unable to realize upon our securities and investments quickly enough to
meet the oall upon ua by our depositors.
Our asseta are $610,510 and our liabilities
are $444,900. We believe that our assets,if
got in with care and without undue pressure
will oover all our indebtedness and leave a
surplus. We request our creditors and
friends not to embarrass the settlement of
our affairs by taking legal proceedings.

Greevy and Connolly Released.
Ottawa, March 1.���The following statement was handed by the Governor- Genera
at 2:30 o'clock to-day for publication: "His
Excellency, the Governor-General, has, on
the recommendation of his Ministers, approved an order for the release from custody
of Messrs McGreevy and Connolly."
This aotion on the part of the Ministry
and the Governor-General is baaed on the
official medical repcrts of Dr. Church, insisting on the serious consequences to
the health of the prisoners which
might arise from their further
detention, and a further medical
opinion, whfch, at His Excellency's suggestion, the Ministry decided to obtain from
Dr. Wrieht, corroborating the report and
recommendation of Dr. Churoh.
At 2:40 o'clock both men were liberated
and left for Montreal by the 4 30 train.
They looked fairly well; They were 100
days in jail to-day. Neither cured to Bay
say anything to the preis. Tbey were well
used by   the  prison   officials   and   citizens

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

Sohool of Penmanship.
The young man with a bad handwriting
who seeks employment among business men
finds there is no demand for his awkwardness at any price. Everyone who uses a
pen Bhould write legibly and attractively.
There is no excuse in these days for a young
person to write in a slovenly manner. This
should be left to those of a past gen' ration,
who were dueated before the days of business training schools. Here all of ordinary

A lawyer who had been overworked
rose in his sleep, went into the hall of
hia house and discharged a pistol. The
household hurriod to the place aud
found him at the head of th*? stairway,
awake, but much bewildered. He had
dreamed of burglars and had gone to attack them. One member of the family
slept through the noise. When he came
into the dining room���before he had
heard of the events of the night���he complained that his sleep had been much
disturbed. He bad dreamed that he had
been condemned to bs shot, that he had
been led to the place of execution and
had fallen senseless when the guns were
fired.
A lady dreamed that a man came into
her room, poured some water into a basin, carried the splashing water to her
bedside and began to sprinklo it over her.
She awoke and heard a loud splashing.
At first she was motionless with fear,
but presently she lighted a candle and
went to the basin, where she found a
mouse making frantio efforts to get out
of the water.
Another dreamed that she had a severe earache, that she rose, unlocked a
doorthat separated her room from one
in which two children slept and went
to a shelf where was a lotion which she
applied to her ear. When she awoke,
she found herself in her own bed and
without pain. Ths door was still
locked, but in a few minutes one of ths
children began to cry that his ear ached*.
And she rose and want to the shelf for
the lotion.
A young man dreamed that ho was in
his office, busy with a troublesome estimate, when a woman came in with a
screaming baby and began to walk rapidly up and down the room, so that it
was impossible for the calculator to remember his figures. Presently the woman thrust tho child into his arms, and
he was so startled by thia that he awoke,
but the screams still troubled his ears,
for a mother in a neighboring room waa
walking about vainly trying to quiet a
'"Ting child.
Another incident appears to be a case
of thought transference. Several years
after the death of her husband, a widow,
lying awake one night, recalled vividly
6ome scenes of her husband's hist illness.
Presently her daughter, who was beside
her, awoke aial said, "Oh, mamma, 1
have been going over in my dreams all
the scenes of papn's illness." She then
told Iipt dream, in which the scenes wore
almost the counterpart of those that had
beeu recalled by her mother.
Dreamers sometimes answer questions
and carry on more or less coherent conversations.
A lady had a summer cottage oa an
island in Muskoka. One night her sons
were stortnstaid on the mainland, and a
young English visitor went to sleep full
of apprehension that Indians might visit
the house while their protectors were
absent.
In the night the hostess was suddenly
roused by some one clutching her arm.
and when she opened her eyes she saw
her guest standing by the bedside.
"Oh, Mrs,Laughton, Mrs. Laughton."
exclaimed the girl in a nun ise whisper,
"there's a man at the window*���an Indian
He's gone to get something to climb in
by."
The next moment Eva waa fumbling
about on the floor.
"What are 700 dotagT asked Mm.
Laughton.
"I have some liniment in my valise,"
was the answer. "I'm going to get it
out, and when he puts his head through
the window again Til throw it in his
eyes."
Mrs. Laughton, who was not nervous,
began to laugh, but Bra paid no attention aud presently asked, "Where's the
button hook?"
"What do you want, it for?"
"Why, Mrs. Laughton," said Bra
aloud, and in a very indignant tone, "do
you think I would allow myself to be
seen anywhere with my shoes unbuttoned? No man would respect thut kind of
girl."
In the morning when Mrs. Laughton
awoke and looked across the room to
Eva's bid she saw the gi'fl ultting up.
gazing villi dismay at Iter urookiitlly buttoned sl.io.^iin which sue hatl slept. She
had no recollection of the remarks she
had intuit* in tho night, and it was evident tuat she had been asleep all the
tips.
One night in camp I heard a peculiar
sound near the middle of the tent, and
by the dim light I saw one of the campers apparently trying to climb up the
tentpole.
"What are you doingf' I asked.
"There's a snake in my bed," she answered, "so I'm going to sleep up there."
"Up therel"
"Yes, why not* It will be more oom-
tortable."
Then, with a sudden change of tone,
she exclaimed, "I forgot to say my prayers." Lnt instead of kneeling sin* picked <
her way through the tent to the foot of
eoe of the beds and lay there till morning. She did uot remember tho conversation of the night, but told us that she
had a habit of talking in her sleep, and
that she had often conversed with her
sisters while she was sleeping soundly.���

8TEAMB0ATING'ON THE OHIO.
It Was at the Height of Its Prosperity
Half a Century Ago.
It was from 1840 to 1835 that steam-
boating was at its height. Fortunes
were made in those years by men who
owned and ran 'boats. There were lots
of steamers on tho river then. The embryo industries of that period Ct fended
on the river entirely, for railroads had
only been proposed���not built. About
100 steamboats were built at Pittsburg
annually to run on the Ohio and Mississippi rivers. This city was noted for
the trim crafts it placed on tho water, as
some of the biggest and best running
steamers were built at the headwaters of
the Ohio.
The boats of the early steamboating
days were all side wheelers. It was not
until late that the advent of the stern
wheel boats occurred, and when it did
they were not looked upon with favor
by the denizens of the side wheel crafts.
The rivermen regarded them as an inferior kind of boat, on whose decks it
was beneath the dignity of a first class
steamboatman to tread.
The packets were of good size and
stoutly built. They were not supplied
with swinging stages and steam capstans, and their engines were of sure but
not so graceful movement as engines
now, and electric lights for steamboats
were not even dreamed of. But they
served their purpose in making big money for their owners.
There was but one organized packet
company running boats down the river
from Pittsburg. It was the old Pittsburg
and Cincinnati Packet line, and it owned
about 25 steamboats, some of which left
the Pittsburg wharf daily. Among them
were the Buckeye State, the Hibernia,
Pittsburg, Crystal Palace and Pennsylvania. These boats were all stoutly
built and especially adapted for fast
running. The laws relating to racing
were not so stringent then as now, and
exciting contests of speed on the river
occurred daily.
One of the swiftest of the packets was
the Pennsylvania. She was the largest
of the Cincinnati boats and made some
splendid records on the Ohio. She was
210 feet long and 31 feet beam. Another
fast steamer was the Alleghany. She was
not so large as the Pennsylvania, but
was almost as speedy. Some of these old
Cincinnati Packet line boats were stink,
a few burned, and the others wore out in
the river service.
E'sides the Cincinnati company's pack-
els thcro were several steamers, most of
Uiem owned by Pittsburgers, which ran
down the river and which had no regular trades, but made trips whenever and
wherever there was occasion for their
���services. They were chiefly to St. Louis
and New Orleans, the trip to the last
named point being completed in about
20 days. There were a few boats running up the Monongahela and Alleghany
rivers. Brownsville was as far up as
the slackwater improvements extended
on the Monongahela, and Franklin was
the head of navigation on the Alleghany.
���Pittsburg Post.
A Dnrdlstan Legend of a Bear.
Two women, a mother and her little
daughter, were one night watching their
field of Indian corn���"makai"���against
the inroads of the bears. The mother
had to g'o to her house to prepare the
food and ordered her daughter to light a
fire outside. While she was doing this
a bear came and took her away. He carried her to his den and daily brought her
to eat and drink. He rolled a big* stone
in front of the den whenever he went
away on his tours, which the girl was
not strong enough to move.
When she became old enough to do
this, he used daily to lick her feet, by
which they became swollen and gradually dwindled down to mere misshapen
stumps. The girl eventually died, and
the poor bear, after vain efforts to restore t/ter to life, roamed disconsolately
about the fields.���Dr. Leitner in Asiatic
Quarterly.

THE ART OF SHOPPING
The art of shopping is not necessarily to make at all times a good bargain, but to secure a fair equvalent of tbe money spent, and to be able to do
this witb tbe least expenditure of time aud tr uble
J��  GOOD  BAEG-AI1T
is clistiag isbed from a cbeap bargain, but in tbese days of bargains and bargain-days, wben from one end of Canada to the other���yea, and the
United States, too���the newspapers are crying bargains���and we read about bargains in this thing, and bargains in that thing, when bargains are by
many more to be sought after than wisdom, and when every dealer in the country from the "peanut vendor" to the "merchant prince" calls everything
a bargain���in these days it is not so easy to distinguish a good bargain from the cheap one;
THE   EESTJLT  OF   SHZO^^IlSTGh
Should be a feeling of satisfaction with the goods purchased. A sense of having accomplished what you set out to do, snd that in a reasonable
and sensible manner.    Not a tired-to'death feeling, and an uncertainty as to whether that forty nine eent article was worth fifty cents after all.
"WIE   SAY  TIBLJ^T  THE  "W(  _vdl^_.lsr
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
