British Sailors Gives Cheers for Uncle

Piper���British Officers Reported to
Have Refused Assistance��� One Refers a Merchant Captain to Admiral
Benham De Mello on Board the Republiea is at Bay���Pope Loo Tries a
Water Cure.
(Cop) right 1893, by the United Preaa.)
Rio Janeiro, Feb. 21.���The merchant
vessels st thiB port are suffering extremely
tor want i>f witter, because of the refusal of
the insurgents to allow a waterboat to go
around the buy nnd supply such craft with
freBh water. The captain of the British
Merchantmen J. A. Smith, made application to the commander of a British man-of-
war, for assistance necessary to enable him
to obtain a supply of water, and was contemptuously refused. The merchant skipper
proposed applying to Admiral Benham for
aid, whereupon the Commander of the war
vessel Bnee'ing'y answered that he might do
aB he liked. Thee.pi iu of the Merchantmen then appealed io Admiral Benham,who
assigned Lieut. Kilbourne to guard the
waterboat under the American flag. Vessels
of all nations are seeking protection of the
United States flag. British sailors are
openly cursing English officers, who they
declare are sacrificing commerce to Admiral
DaGama. The evidence of the existing feeling in this respect is given in the fact that
at the principal landing yesterday, the
British flag was trampled in the dirt by
British Bailors, whose officers expressed no
word of disapproval of their act, which was
accompanied by cheers for "Uncle Sam."
Leo Tries Kneipp's Water Cure.
Rome, Feb. 21.���The Pope held a oon-
eullu iou yealeiday with Fulher Kneipp,
the Bavarian prits , who originated a well-
known water cure and came to Rome at
Leo's request. He explained to the Pope
the state nf his health generally, and spoke
pai ticularly of the intestinal troubles from
which he has suffered. Father Kneipp assured his Holine��s that his ailments were
not serious aud predicted for him several
years more of lite. He advised the Holy
Father to try cold water bathing, and this
morning, by order of the Pope, Father
Kneipp made his first trial of the treatment.

Rio Janeiro says: "The forts have prevented the insurgent warship Republiea, with
Admiral de Mello aboard, from entering the
bay. Three officers, Buspected of treason,
have been shot at Santos. Foreigners are
still forced to serve in the army, despite the
energetic protests of the consuls. Many

PARIS IS PANIC STRICKEN.
AU the  Parisians Have  Bombs  on the
Brain.
Pakis, Feb. 21.���The police arrested today an anarchist named Rivoli, who had
just arrived here from England. Five other
anarchists were also arrested to-day, on
suspicion of having caused an explosiou in
avenue Saint Ouin. The explosion was attributed to the discharge of a bomb, but it
was subsequently learned that it was caused
by the ignition of gas. The police, hoAeve*,
found eleven shell bombs on the premises,
n'd th"��e were taken to he'ii'ip triers fir
,'Ar.iiiinatiuu, viuii u vitw of ascertaining
whether they were really intended to be
filled with explosive material. The discovery of the so-called bombs has greatly
agitated the residents of  the neighborhood.
M. M. Calbers who was wounded by the
bomb explosion at No. 9 Rue St. Jacques,
died to-night. Police commissioner Dutch,
who arrested Ravachol, and has been persecuted ever since by the anarchists, is tired
of his office and has asked to be transferred
to a country district- The revelation of the
plot to kill him yesterday has convinced
them that he is too carefully watched. A
tin box, supposed to contain an infernal machine, was found in the corridor
of the Comedie Francaise this evening.
It was sent to the municipal laboratory for
examination. Several glass and iron tubed,
that looked like bombs, were found in the
corridors of some city buildings to-day.
Most of them had beeu placed by practical
jokers and were found to eonl.'iin oily harmless powders. i.ioof them have not yet
been examined. Paris is panic-stricken.
Everybody carrying a parcel is suspected
and watched by the police. Metal boxes
are regarded as presumptive evidence of evil
intentions. Count Laveaux was arrested
this evening as a suspicious character, because he was carrying a tin box under his
arm and declined to open it at the command
of a policeman. Wheu ripened the box was
found to contain paints.
The Greasers' Revenge.
San Dieiio, Cal., Feb. 21.���William Far-
lew, a poundkeeper at Fiaguana, on the
Mexican border, was assaulted and nearly
killed last night. Farlew had impounded
some cattle that had strayed over from the
Mexican side and his assailants are believed
to be Mexicans actuated by revenge.
No Foundation for tho Rumor.
Philadelphia, Pa., Feb.21.���Ex-minister
to Hayti, Durham, who resides iu this city,
to-day reoeived a letter from Minister
Smythe, at Port au Prince, denying that

United States legation and the Haytian
Government. He says the whole thing is

Phelps In a Critical Condition.
New Haven, Conn., Feb. 21.���Ex Minister E. J. Phelps !b quite ill. Dr. Gilbert,
his physician, Bays that the ex-minister's
oondition is such as to call for o.ireful treatment. The trouble from which he suffers is
liver complaint, complicated with other
troubles. At 11 o'clock to-night it was
said that Mr. Phelps w.is in a critical condition and gradually growing weaker.
HiB condition was such that Dr. Gilbert,
the physician, decided to spend the night
with him.
Untold Agony for Six Hours.
Rino, Nev., Feb. 21.���From Dr. M A.
Phillips, who hus just returned from Ver-
dina, near which place a snow slide occurred
on Monday, sweeping the cabins of Michael
Warner, Tom Thrasher, M. S. Wheeler,
Ede and Leonard Nelson down the mountain side, the following is learned: The
camp, where the slide occurred, is two ..ilea
northwest of the State line. M. S. Wheeler,
who had a road contract, with four of his
men, Ede, Tom Thrasher, Michael Warner
and L 'onard Nelson, were iu their cabins
and several other men were occupying a
cabin eight rods above. On Monday at 1
o'olook, the men in the upper cabin
saw the slide go past the cabin, but
thought nothing about it. Ede, the
only survivor, says they were all in the
cabin as usual. He heard a roar, and was.
knocked senseless. When he reovered
consciousness he found himself down beneath the snow, wood and dirt. He could
only move one hand, and a spike was driven
into the back of his neck. He was held in
thiB position, suffering untold agony, for
six hours, and probably would have died
had it not been for Joe Rideau,
who returning from Reno had the
mail for Wheeler and started for his cabin.
He heard Ede's cries and summoned help
and released him and carried him down to
the State Line mill where he was well taken
care of until the arrival of Dr. Phillips. He
was very comfortable this morning and will
be brought to Reno on the first train. A
large force of men are working to find the
bodies of the other four. As the snow is
forty feet deep, it is thought the bodies will
not be found before the spring It iB heart-

he suffered during lhe six hours of
cap'ivity in the sr*o�� and ice.

The Spellln' "B."
Last night the spelling bee attracted quite
an attendance to the rooms of St. Alban's,
and a goodly number took part in the competition. The Rev. G. H. Tovey read out
the word "roe," gradually increasing the
number of syllables. The prizes were won
by Misses Lawson and Haarer. "Collapsible" was the last word given, and on which
the final failuie occurred, the competitors
having all been outspelled with the exception of the winners of the two prizes.
The words given, though appearing eauy
and simple to spe'l were catchy and
well chosen, set to p*. e ihe different capacities of those preseni in spelling winds correctly at once. The audience evidently
thoroughly enjoyed the proceedings anil applauded heartily as an appreciation of the
efforts, when any person who had made a
good stand eventually suffered defeat.
At the close of the I* e, refreshments were
served to those present and the proceedings
became of a social character, finally terminating with a hymn. The next spelling bee
will take place in about a month, when the
value of the prizes will be increased and the
whole proceedings he on a much larger
scale. The Church of England Temperance society, in conned ion with which
the evening's entertainment was held,
added freBh members to their list last night,
their number has steadily increased since
the first starting of the branch in Nanaimo.
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 should 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 educated before the days of business training schools. Here all of ordinary
intelligence and application can acquire a
good business handwriting, the value of
which is not easy to compute.
The Nanaimo Business College has a
special department of penmanship, at the
head of whioh is Mr. J. R. Denneny, who
is acknowledged to be nnt only one of the
finest penman in the world, but one of the
best teachers and developers of good pen-
manship in others.

ERASTUS   ICHABOD.
Erastus Wiman  Has Been Annexed by
the Tombs in New York.
New Yokk,  Feb.   21.���Erastus  Wiman,
formerly manager for R.    U. Dun   k   Co.'s
Mercantile Agency, builder   of   the   States
Island Rapid Transit railroad, and a   prominent advocate of annexation of   Canada   to
the United   States,   was   arrested   to-day,
charged with forgeries amounting to   $229,-
000.    He was arraigned before Judge Mar-
tine uud committed to ihe Tombs in default
of $25,000 bail.    The arrest was made at the
office of Mr.   Wiman's son-in-law,  Norman
S. Miller, in the Washington building, on a
bench warrant   issued   by   Judge Martine.
Soon after, the grand jury h-tuded down two
indictments, charging Wnn u with   forgery
in   the   second   dtgree.    Mi*.    Wiman   expressed aome surprise at his arrest, and then
asked if there would be   an   opportunity to
get bail.    He said he ought to  have   a lawyer and would   like   to   be   represented by
counsel.    Ao effort   was   made   by  friends
to     get     bail     late    in      th.-    afternoon,
but     without      success.       Neither     did
Mr.    Wimon    have     couusel     when     he
was     taken      to     the     general     sessions
by the detectives.    As Boon as it was known
that Mr. Wiman had been arrested,  Assistant District Attorney Lindsay made known
' he complaint   on   which   the indictments
were founded.      In opening he says :     "I
have taken great pains to investigate   these
charges for the purpose of satisfying myself
whether auy successful   explanation   or defense of them can be made, and I think yon
will agree with me that clearer  cases, more
easily proved by reputable   witnesses   have
rarely, if ever, been submitted to tbe   authorities."
The association known as the   firm of   R.
G. Dun & Uo , with   which   the defendant
Wiman was connected,   during   the   period
covering the act complained of, was   formed
on January 1st, 1889, but Wiman   had   for
many years prior to that date had  business
relations with Mr. Dun.    Wiman was not a
partner of Mr.   Dun   in   the   usual   sense.
Under the articles of the association he had
nn right, title or interest in the proper*y or
go .1 will of the busineai or profits   thereof;
for while it was agreed that   he should   reserve a certain percentage of   the I'rnfi'n,   it
was sptcully   provided tnat he   should   receive only suoh sum  for salary,  for faithful
service rendered, and   that the   amount   of
profit should be the basis of determining the
amount of salary.    It was also   provided in
the articles of the association that he should
not employ tho name of R. G. Dun  k Co.,
excepi in the regular aud proper business of
the said   Mercantile  Ageucy, and   that   he
should not use the name ot the said asaociation in issuing, miking, drawing, or endorsing   any   note, bill   of  exchange, draft, or
other   obligation, except   only in   endorsements of such papers for the acoount of the
aosooiation.    His   also   had a right   to sign
film checks for firm purposes only.    Wiman
was a salaried  manager for Mr. Dun, with
such po�� ois only as the contract gave him,
with      additional      power      to       draw
cheoks.    The   property   of   R.    G.    Dun
k Co., was not his   property   in  any sense.
The moneys of R. G. Dun k Co.   were   not
his money in any sense and the profits of R.
G. Dun k Co. not his   profits   and   yet   by
various acts of embezzlement  through   misrepresentations,   concealments,   breaches of
his agreement, misuse of   the   powers  with
which he was trusted, he succeeded   during
the years 1888, 1889, 1890, 1891    1892, and
up to February, 189.1, in stealing from   Mr.
Dun   the   enormous   sum   of   $229,018 :>0.
This sum he owes Mr. Dun today.   In view
of his relation to the property of Mr.   Dun,
which Wiman helped to manage under   the
name nf R. G. Dun k Co.,   he   is   guilty of
the crime of having embezzled the whole  or
the grea!er part ot this sum.
Mr. I bin ouly timkes t*o specific   charges
in his complaint, though he sj*ys many more
e u'd easilv    be brought if  desirable.    "In
February, 1893," ihe   complaint  says, "R.
G. Dun k Co. owed   upwards of   ten thousand dollars to E.   W.   Bulling*.i*,   Esq., of
this city, for   materials   purchased   on the
6th of   February,   1893.    Wiman being in
urgent   straits   for    money,   directed   the
cashier of   R  G. Dun k Co. to   make out a
check to   the order of   Mr. Bullinger, and
instead of   transmitting   it   to him in part
payment of his account, deliberately forged
the name of F. W. Bullinger on the baok of
the   check, and   deposited   it   to   his own
credit   in his   owu bank.    The account  of
Bullinger   on   the   books of   the firm was
debited with that house in the usual course
of time.    These acts of Wiman were wholly
without the knowledge  of any   member   of
the firm, and since then they   have paid   to
Mr. Bullinger, the sum which   Mr.   Wiman
on the day named appropriated bj means of
forgery to his use.    On the 20ih du) if January 1893, it is further alleged,    K. C    Dun
k Co., owed the Campbell   Printing Press k
Mfg. Co , the sum of $5,580 fo* two printing
presses purchased   in   May   1802.    Wiman
piicnret from the cashier of   R.   C. Dun &
Co       . Iieck to the order of   Ogdeu Brower,
tin.,*! tr (of the Campbell's,) on the pietext
that he desired to pay the accouui. Ho then
went to the Campbell Co. and telling t hem that
R. G. Dun k Co. were short of funds, asked
them whether   they   would   like  notes for
their   account   instead of   cash.    Ou   Mr.
Brower   acquiescing io his*   proposition,  he
made two notescovering the amount   in his
own nameand delivered them to him.   He then
forged the name of Ogdeu Brower,t'easurer,
on the back of the check  aud  appropriated
it to hie use.    All of  these fuels   were concealed from the   knowledge ot   Mr. Dun, or
any of his -asociates, but ihey subsiquently
paid the Cumpbell Oompauy tbe amount of
their acoount.    Wiman a   crimes   were first
Buspected in February 1893, but   could  not
be proven until uu examination of the firm's
books was made, and this has only recently
been     competed.     Mr     Dun,     however,
put   an    end    to    their      business     relations a year ago, when his   suspicions  were
first aroused.    Ou learning that his   crimes
had been detected, Wiman offered to transfer to Mr. Dun oertain real estate of Staten
Island to his account,   of   doubtful   value,
but Mr. Dun refused to receive any preference  over   his   other, creditors.     Wiman,
therefore, made a formal assignment for the
benefit of his creditors, but his assets have
amounted to almost nothing.    A feeling   of
sympathy for Wiman's family, au imperfect
knowledge of tbe extent   of   his   embezzlements and fears for his other creditors (s me
of whom would be more  seriously   injured,

(' ontinued from page one.)
thougli not to ao large an extent, than Mr.
Dun), are the considerations Mr.
Dun gives for not bringing the matter
into court before. The compluint concludes
aa follows: "In view of the foregoing facts,
and npon the conviction that a man of
Wiman's bad character ought not longer to
be allowed to masquerade as an honest man
in this community, and as an adviser and
exhorter of youth, and out of a sense of
obligation to the mercantile world, with
which he iB so closely identified, he has
decided that his duty requires him to expose Wiman's conduct and to hand him
over to the authorities, that he may be
dealt with as the law directB." There was
no signature to the complaint, but its authorship is credited to ex-District
attorney Delancy Nicoll. The names of the
witnesses Bigned were R. D. Douglas, W.
W. Bullinger, Ogden Brower, Treasurer
Campbell Printing Press Co., and the
cashier of R. G. Dun k Co. On being arraigned before Judge Martine, Mr. Wiman
was infoitried of the nature of the charges.
He was then asked whether he wonld furnish bail to-night. "No sir," said Mr. Wi-
man, "I do not intend to." Judge Martine
then held him in $25,000 bail and he was
committed to the Tombs prison. Before
going to jail, Wiman sent a despatch to his
counsel, Benjamin F. Tracey.
Harris Dun Wiman, a son of Erastus Wiman, was seen by the United Press reporter
this evening. He Baid thut upon hearing of
his father's arrest, he went immediately to
the Tombs, but as it was after the hour of
locking up the prieon, he was "lily permitted to send in a note. He said: "I received
, message in reply, in which my father
staled that he was getting along all right.
He said that all was serene; that he was
conscious of no guilt and has committed no
crime. If he had blundered, he is willing
to stand the consequences. He said that
several friends wanted to obtain bail for
him, but he declined to allow them to do so.
He also said that he haB an engagement to
deliver an address at Grammercy Hall in
East 42nd street to-morrow evening, and
that hs is going to make every effort to keep
the engagement.." Mr. Wiman, jr., said
that he waB not sufficiently familiar with
hiB father's affairs to attempt lo make a
reply to the charges, but he believed his
father will be able to answer the charge of
wrong doing satisfactorily.
Objective Education.
The Nanaimo Free Press is wrestiing with
the Redistribution Bill, but instead of taking the census as a basis for its contentions
it accepts the voters' lists as correct and
thereon builds a very flnisy superstructure.
The voters' li ts do not cut any figure in
the matter, and the free Press should be
aware of that fact, for tbe very good reason
that they are euti. ��� ly inaccurate and misleading, many names being on the lists of
persons who are dead, or who have been out
of the country for years, whilst those of
minors have been placed the eon as well as
numbers duplicated. To show Ihe fallacy
of the contention of our contempory, it ia
only necessary to refer to the cities in the
east, or in Great Britain, to show that the
city representation is placed at a higher per
capita ratio than is that of the rural municipalities. Take for instance Toronto with a
population close upon 200,000 and a votora'
list of over 30,000; that city elects but three
representatives to the Local Legislature.
So it is with Hamilton, Linden and Ottawa,
and a similar condition of affairs is to be
found in Montreal and Quebec and the
Maritime Provinces. A larger percentage
of representatives is given to the rural constituencies everywhere than to the cities.
The Redistribution Bill now before the
House bases the representation for the cities
upon one member for every 5,000 inhabitants
as returned in the census and a greater
ratio is given the rural or suburban districts.
It is really a matter for surprise that the
Free Press is not better informed in respeot
of these matters, which at present are of
such vital importance to the whole community.��� Vancoucer World.
Chinese Language.
There is no such thing us a Chinese language any more thau there is au European
language. A Canton man cannot understand
an Amoy man, and I hive seen two Chinamen sitting together wiih a third one acting
as an interpreter. Pigeon English is the
common tongue of commerce. It has a
vocabulary of less than 1,000 words, but is
sufficiently flexible to answer any purpose.
Were China but an island or a seriea of
islands instead of half of a large continent,
and thuB open on all sides to the omnipresent language carrying British steamer,
it is within the bnunds of probability that
pigeon English would ere now have replaced
the national tongue to such an extent as to

For two or three days the waiter at

At noon one day a young man took

me on the buck seat with "judge." 1
didn't say anything until 1 caught him
on the veranda two hours later. Then
I observed;
"George, up to this noon you were
calling me general."
"Yes, sah."
"But as soon as that young mail came
in you gave him my title."
"Yes, sah; had to do it, sah."

"Bekase I seed dat he was a real gineral, sah, an' yo' wasn't. Sorry, sah,

Bow ia Young Man's Name Caused Him to
lie  Avoided.
Salzburg is one of the most charming
summer resorts in German Austria. The
other day a young man arrived whose
appearance was so strikingly beautiful
that all the mothers of marriageable
daughters tried to outdo each other In
their attentions to him. But this friendly intercourse had not lasted many days
when, all of a sudden, he found himself
shunned by everybody. When he made
his appearance at a public hall of any
kind, he found himself the sole occupant of the place in a minute. One
evening all the fashion of Salzburg had
met at a concert hall, when the stranger
made his appearance, sitting down in
one of the reserved seats. His neighbors right and left jumped up and in a
few minutes the hall was almost empty.
The stranger stopped some of the fugitives, asking for the reasons why he
was thus shunned by everybody.
"Why," they said, "you are from Hamburg, that hotbed of the cholera." The
young man burst put laughing, and
said: "I am a Vienna man and my name
is John Charles Hamburger." Then the
Salzburgan produced a list of arrivals
in which was printed the name, John
Charles, Ilamburgan. The mistake was
rectified and on the day* following the
' young man formed the center of attraction again.

many instances. In the clam it is found

THE BUDGET DEBATE-THE
MIER'S SPEECH.
PRE-
Oa Monday afternoon last Hon. Mr,
Davie resumed the debate on the budget.
He considered in the words of Artemus
Ward, that it was about time to give the
old man a show, and so much having been
heard from the Opposition against the Government, the House ought next to hear
what was to be said on the other side. The
Premier directed his remarks chiefly in reply to the speech made by Mr. Beaven, the
leader of the Opposition. The hon. gentleman had said that the Province would lose
upwards of 8600,000 in converting $1,700,
000 six per cent, and four and a half per
cent, bonrls into three per cent , that is
that more than urns-third of the total
amount would be wasted in the operation.
This remarkable croak, however, was not
fulfilled. It was a false prophesy. But so
far as could be observed, neither the House
nor the country had been in the least alarmed by the hon. gemlmau's wild statement.
He had cried "w**lt ! wolf!" so often that
the cry had ceased to cause any alarm. No
one paid any attention to it. His efforts
had come to be correctly appreciated. In
the same manner no one can believe the
foolish statement made in his speech un the
budget, that the Province was on the brink
of bankruptcy. It was all mere croaking,
undeserving of serious attention, but none
the less croaking of a sort that waB eminently calculated to damage the credit of the
Province abroad.
Mr. Davie next referred to what the Opposition members are pleased to call the
Pooley scandal. It was a scandal in the
estimation of no one but the scandal mongers themselves. The Opposition ought to
be prond ef their dignified position in assuming the role. The subject matter of the
alleged scandal is that Mr. Pooley, who
holds the honorary office of President of tbe
Council without salary, and is at the same
time a barrister with a large and important
practice, bad gone into court in a case in
which his clients of the E. k S. railway
have a dispute with the Government. Now
it is an admitted principle aud rule of the
profession, that it is the privilege of any
man who happens to be a barrister, when
he is called to Her Majesty's council, to
retain his private practice, otherwise no
lawyer whose services were worth having
oould enter the Government, because he
simply could not afford to do so if he had
to relinquish his practice. It would be
monstrous to expect that he should abandon
his private means of livelihood, more *
pecially as a position in the Government is
not permanent, but is subject to the contingencies arising from the results of popular
elections. He might be forced to retire
from his official position if the public for
any reason or no reason demanded a change
of Governmeut, or he might himself for personal reasons desire to retire. Then if hia
practice was gone lm might find himself in a
very awkwa d posi'ion He would, in fact,
be compelled in oontmence his professional
career over again. Hem:** a lawyer who
enters ill* (iuvmrniieut cannot htl'nid
to throw away his practice unless
he happens to be possessed of a competent private fortune. Even the Attorney-
General, Mr. Davie claimed, might feel in
duty bound to appear for a private client
against the Crown. How much more, then,
was Mr. Pooley, who holds simply an honorary office without salary, entitled to exercise bis privilege ae a lawyer to appear
for his client to argue a dry point of law
which involved no secrets of the Government, and in which nothing that he had
learned as a member of the administration
could be of any use to him. The Premier
also pointed out that lawyers of the Imperial Government often exercised a similar
privilege, and proved conclusively that Mr.
Pooley in appearing for the Esquimalt and
Nanaimo railway violated no rule of propriety, or honor, or professional etiquette.
The Premier also replied to Mr. Beaven
on the subject of travelling allowances to
ministers when sent on a public mission, or
engaged on publio business which makes
travelling from plaoe to place necessary.
On this subject both Mr. Beaven and his
organ of the press, the Victoria Times, have
spoken in a most unbecoming and inconsistent manner, having in mind certain proceedings   of   the  Government  of   which   Mr.
Beaven was himself the leader. In June,
1874, it was decided to be necessary that
the Attorney-General in Mr. Beaven's Government should go to England, and on the
16th of the month he drew out $2,500 for
his travelling e xpensfcs. Lateronhedrew upon
the treasury for $500 more, and when
he returned he repeated the operation for a
balance of $510.99, making a total of $3,-
510.99 for travelling expenses, without any
particulars whatever. It is not on record
that Mr. Beaven made any objection to this,
which certainly seems to be a pretty smart
bill for travelling expenccs to England even
in 1874; but the leader of the Opposition
and his organ, the Victoria Times, have
made loud complaint because Mr. Davie
s'nee he became Premier in July, 1892, had
charred the province $1,900 for travelling
expenses when discharging his duties as
Attorney-General at several important
public trials, at which he appeared for the
crown, not to mention two journeys across
the continent on public business. Mr.
Beaven made no reply to this. We need
not follow further the Premier's very able
speech in its details, Liet it suffice to say
that he met and successfully confronted tbe
complaints and objections ot the leader of
the Opposition at every point, and showed
that there was nothing in them. It is sel-
dem indeed that an abler or more convincing speech is heard in the House than tbat
delivered on Monday evening last by the
Hon. Theodore Davie, speaking as leader
of the Government. He literally did not
leave the Opposition or its leader a leg to
stand upon in the various controversies they
had raised.
An Ottawa dispatch says that the Supreme
Court on Tuesday decided by a majority of
three to two that the Roman Catholic minority have no right to appeal to the Gov-
ernor-in-Cnuucil against the provisions of
the Manitoba School Act of 1890.
Evaxs, the California bandit, who was
again arrested a few days ago, has been
safely committed to prison to serve the life
sentence passed upon him. There was
some talk in Fresno that a number of men
from Visalia would join together and
lynch Evans, but it all ended in
talk.     No     such     attempt    was    made-
As THE Government refused to accept the
amendments by the peers in the Employers'
Liability bill, Mr. Gladstone on Tuesday
moved in the House of Commons that the
bill be discharged. His Radical
followers were much disappointed because Mr. Gladstone did not improve the
occasion by making a fierce oratorical attack upon the House of Lords. They had
crowded the lobbies to hear it, but had to
depart disappointed. Why do they not
insist on Mr. Gladstone dissolving Parliament, and bringing on a general election
without any more delay? This would settle
every question in dispute, including Home
Rule, which is so dear to Mr. Gladstone's
heart, and it is the only thing that will
settle them. But Mr. Gladstone is in no
hurry to dissolve. Is it because he has
reason to fear the result of a general elec
tion?

THE PBOVINCIAL CAPITAL.
Kitchen's Motion Lost���Foster Favor*
Government Railways.
Victoria, Feb. 21.���[Special]���The Budget debate was continued in tbe House all
this afternoon, and stands adjourned on the
motion of the Hon. Vernon. Mr. Kitchen's
amendment was lost on a division of 10 to
-21. Mr. Foster spoke favoring the construction of the Canadian Western railway,
if the Government first acquired the
lands on island through which the
railroad will run. He thought the road was
required and would pay after a few years.
He favored Government ownership of railways, and in the oasn of the E. k N. railway thought that it should be purchased by
the Government at a generous though not
.exorbitant price.
Likeness in Great Hinds.
Lord Wolseley, like Osoar Wilde, disclaims all sympathy with the iconoclastic propaganda of the Thirteen Club.
Writing, in reply to an invitation to
the recent dinner of the club, "our only
General" sa>s: "I not only believe in
many superstitions, but I hug them with
the warmest atTeoion. They link mo, if not
.with a spiritual world of which I know
nothing, at least with a glnrioiiH and anistic
and picturesque past, ot which history has
.told me much. I believe in ghosts and in
amulets; I have worn out the rims of several
hate siuoe I have been in Dublin through my
salutations of single n agpins���that mystic hil**! abounds in Irelarrl���and I woud
not on any account walk under a ladder, kc.; in fact, 1 am prone to adopt
any superstition I am told of whioh I
dnd others believe in. How, therefore,
eould I express sympathy with the objects
,ot your club?"
Endless "Altohes."
It is surprising how many writers, both
American and Canadian, misrepresent the
Englishman, and the Cockney more p irticu-
larly, in the matter of miapronounciation.
In a recent rhyme, anent a supposed Londoner, there occurs these three words, "hex-
tent hi ham." Now the purest speaking
linguist of English, finds it difficult to properly and easily emphasize two aspirates
following one upon the heels of the other.
Just try "hextent hi ham" and realise how
hard a rendering it is for "extent lam."
Neither the Cockney proper nor the average
Englishman drops so many h's as he is supposed to, nor does he aspirate all the vowel
sounds. To say that he does, argues ignorance of the subjeot, accompanied often by
an inventive faoulty. At least he ia not
guilty of aspirating the letter itself, which
so many Canadians and Amerioans do, when
priding themselves upon never lapsing the
"haitoh."
When you want a first-class job of printing remember the Dailt Tbjmram oan
supply it.
"Patti Rosa."
Patti Rosa, the charm and clevernots of
whose work in soubrette comedy characters
nave made her a popular favorite, comes to
the Opera House next Saturday night in
"Miss Dixie" and it can he safely foretold
that she will furnish as delightful and exhilarating performances as the most exacting
oan demand. She has made a great hit in a
new song entitled "Shootin' Craps." It is a
vivid vocal description of the game as
played by southern darkies and the action,
movement and expression given by
the ' little comedienne, in singing it,
are true to life. She will be
seen in "Miss Dixie" her most successful
play and will have ample opportunity to introduce all the merry quips, hoydenish
ways, and clever by-play that are part and
parcel of her individual work. Her com
pany is of excellent composition, The jolly
German oomedian Joe Cawthorn is still
prominent in it and has some new selections for his conoertina playing. Bert Coote,

SAD DROWNING   ACCIDENT.
A Miner Loses His Life   at  Wellington.
The Drowning Man's Last Words.
Wellington was yesterday overshadowed
by a fatal accident. About 3 p.m. Pete
Beyer and his cousin Emil Nauman, who
are both Germans aud miners, left their
homes to start .* ork ou the afternoon shift
at tbe No. 5 shaft. During the frosts, when
Diver lake is frozen over, some of the
miners, lesidiiig on the New Townsite, have
made a practice uf taking a short, cut aciuss
the frozen water when it was at all bearable.
Emil Nauman proposed taking tne short
cut, but Pete Beyer preferred walking
round tlie shore. When the latter had got
as far as the dancing platform, Emil, bis
cousin, had broken through the ice aud was
calling for help. Pete immediately went to
his ifscue, but broke through himself when
within fifteen feet of his cousin.
Emil Nauman, beiug used to the water
and a good swimmer, waB able to sustain
himself fur abuut ten minutes, thouyh he
says lie cuulii uot have managed to do ao
one minute longer, if help had not come.
Pete Beyer meanwhile hud managed to get
one leg uu the ice, and his right shoulder un
the oppusite side of the hole, and held un
there, till his cousiu Mat Beyer pushed a
2x4 scantling towards the men iu danger.
Emil Nuumau managed to gel huld of the
scantling and was Baved, but Peter, just
when saving himself Has within his grasp,
lust his hold, slipped from his position mm
went under. His cousin sujs that his last
wurds were, "Lord have mercy en me."
The Rev. T. H. Rogers, of the Presbyterian Church, and another gentleman took
a boat and ventuied un the ice, pulling the
boat after them, getting to tbe fatal spot
very (juickly, but were too late to save the
man's life. Tbe reverend gentleman fell in
himself, but managed to get out all right by
the aid of ihe boat's chain, 'ihe people
speak highly of his conduct.
Constable Stevens with two or three
others made a determined headway I 'trough
the ice with a boat aud after much laborious
and praiseworthy effort tuceeeded in ic-
ccveiing the body ei the drowned man. Di
Eberts was on hand and prouuunced that
life was extinct.
The deceased was a number of the A. 0.
F., Robert Dunsmuir Lodge, the members
of which are taking care cf the remains. He
lived in a cabin close tu the lake, Nothing
much was found, hut a few papers including
a deed fur some pruperty at Furt Simpson
and a string of beads, denoting hiB religious
belief. He lived in Wellingten for two
years and was generally liked by all who
knew him. His father and mother are living in Germany.
The A. 0 F. are already called upon to
attend Ihe funeral this afternoon at 4 p. in.
from the I. 0. 0. F. Hall. The Rev. Father
Heyland will read the burial services ; Mr.
R. Fitzpatrick has charge uf  the interment.
A brother of the deceased lives in the
Statea.
Accident to Constablo Brown.
About 12:30 this murniug, Constable
Brown, owing tu the severe frust, slipped un
Commercial street aud dislocated his elbuw.

The Highest Authority in Amerioa.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper au-
thority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Teleoram:
"Did yon ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Viotoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising oity and
believe that your looal daily paper is first-
class, write to tho publisher of The Daily
Teleoram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of Mb paper, and when
you obtain it compare it with yunr home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
why it is that he can't print angood a paper,
or obtain aB good a local patronage, or have
his paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo. '

"Well, he understands me now, my
���dear parents, and will neyer, I am sure,
pjitertain so wild a hope again. That he
toilers I do not doubt, and for the Buffering, lliOUfjh deserved, I am sorry. But he
chose t-tiia crooked path against all our
C'litieiitieg and has no one to blame but
Jliruself. We will not waste this short
n union by any more words of him. I
tli'iutrht it best to toll you this at once
that all tho rest of our time might be
���undisturbed. One of tho old good night
hymns, papa, if you please, and then we
will go to rest that wc may be prepared
for great pleasuro tomorrow."
While Rose and Ralph wore on their
visit home Dunbar hud been sent with a
strong force to disperse an encampment
cf rebels who had stationed themselves
inconveniently near our lines. He was
fucoessful in his mission, had routed
1 hem completely and taken many prisoners. During the tiu��j that this parly
waited about tho union station they had
with thorn many females of the baser
sort, who had often been surprised in at-
tetnpting to lure our men outside the
lines, hut great watchfulness and strict
regulations had given them little encouragement.
On their way back to camp the next
day, having scattered the rebel*, a women, feeble and ragged, came out from
tho wood near the roadsido, holding a
carty rag on a stick as a flag of tructt.
George, who first noticed her, halted.
S'.io advanced and stood before kin:,
earnestly gazing into his face. Sho coul 1
not have been more than 22 or 23 years
old and must have once been handsome.
Meeting no look of recognition, she
dropped her eyes for a moment, then
raising them a;c;;in with a half despairing, half defiant look she said:
"I would speak witli your colonel. I
have something to say to him."
George galloped to where Dunbar rode
and reported this request. The refji-
ment halted at a sign from their cori-
znander, who rode back with George to
whoro the figure still remained like a
Elt.tue, immovable. When they reached
ber, t'.ie searching look which hnd so disturbed Gcorgo was fastened on Duiibai's
face und wit h tho same result. The nun
gathered near with looks of wonder,
mingled with suspicion, that she might
be acting as n decoy to some rebel ambush. She heeded them not nor turned
her eyes from Eustace's face as if to
compi 1 a recognition. He remained si
lent, wondering to what this would tend,
till, her strangely earnest gaze becoming
irksome, ho spoke abruptly:
"Well, woman, what do you wish! I
have no time to loiter."
"Well, woman, what do you irtshP*
"And do you not know me, Eustace
Dunbar? Am I so changed by misery
that you do not recall Estolla Le Barren,
���or aro you so proiid and scornful yon vf ill
not stoop to notice mo iu my misery and
:uinr"
The men with natural delicacy fell
back, for there were some among
George's company who came from their
home nnd lruow of tliuLe Barron tragedy,
"Oh, Estella! And is it thus I find
you? And how came yon, with all youi
faults, among the enemies of your country?"
"I have no country, no friends. The
villain for whom I forsook both has citft
ino out to destruction."
"Estella," interrupted Dunbar whei
he saw how, reckless she was of exposing
her own shame, "come with us to our
camp, and when there I can procure yon
a safe and respectable shelter where you
���cm secure kindness and friends even ye!
if you choose to deserve them. I can n<
longer remain idle here. Will you com*
and trust an old friend?"
"I know not where yon propose taking
me, but lam sick, homeless, starving���1
have no choice but submission to youi
direction."
bhe was really famishing nnd too fee
ble to walk. Eustace saw that food wiu
given her and had her comfortably seat
ed in an ambulance, then hastened the) t
return to camp. To his great joy he
learned that Rose and Ralph had jnsl
arrived. Rose at onco assisted him to
convoy tho wretched woman to the hos
pital and placed her immediately under
the physician's care. The cold, hungei
and exposure of tho last few days had
made fearful inroads upon her constitu
tion. A fever was already upon her, and
when tho excitement and danger of hei
wanderings was over she 6auk under it,
aud there teemed little hope of her recovery.
Many feya of hrnnlnwd dsoosr and
B83A
waraea Dy any symptoms of convalescence, and then, though broken in spirit
and weak as a child, her heart was apparently softened and ready to receive
the good seed.
One pleasant morning, when first able
to converse, she unfolded the history of
her course after leaving her father's
house. It was a sad and painful story,
hut unfortunately so common that it
needs no repetition. Le Barron's supposed wealth had been De Courtney's
attraction, and the same mistaken idea
of his high position, dignities and unbounded riches had lured her on to that
fatal step. Love had had no voice' in
this wicked compact. Not until they
reached Paris and his draft on Le Barron camo back protested did the fortune
hunter learn the deceit that she had
practiced upon him.
The stormy scene that might have been
expected ensued, and tljen De Courtney
informed her that their marriage was all
a sham, and that his wealth and titles
were equally fictitious. Thus deserted
by the man with whom she had fled,
not for love, but for selfish ambitions,
and left to bear her troubles and disappointments as best she might, her fall
was rapid. The money and jewelry she
had so wickedly purloined from mother
and sister that terrible night she had
carefully concealed from De Courtney.
For a short time it enabled her to lead a
gay life, but with no protector in Paris
her associations must of course have been
of a class that opened the door to every
kind of temptation, until at last she sank
into abject ignominy und dishoner. In
this condition Eustace saw aad rescued
her from the lowest depths ot degradation.
And now, though she rallied for a few
weeks, her days were numbered. The
physician from the first gave no encouragement of recovery, and after a short period of comparative ease a speedy termination of her ill spent life was certain.
When first compelled to realizo her precarious situation, she was overwhelmed
with terror and despair. The chaplain
visited her daily. Under his unwearied
teachings and Rose's gentle ministrations
the darkness was gradually dispelled, and
the hope that she. the most guilty, might
find mercy through that atonement so
freely offered to all, even the chief of
sinners, began to comfort her.
As this hope brightened her heart
yearned after friends and kindred. She
had only heard vague reports of her
father's death and was entirely ignorant
of the condition of the other members of
her family. It was a great trial to be
called upon to reveal to the poor sufferer
all the sorrow and shame that had overwhelmed her former home, but after her
heart, so long cold and hard, was brought
into a better state she would not rest -until she had heard every particular. Her
gratitude for the kindness that had
shielded Robbie and Jennie from temptation was very touching, but Maud's
perilous situation weighed keenly upon
her mind. Feeling thut her own reckless and unprincipled conduct from earliest childhood had led her sister into by
and forbidden paths, which had now so
blasted her life if not ruined her soul,
she begged Eustace to seek out Maud
and beseech her by her dying sister's example to seek the better life.
The Newtons, after leaving the city,
had vary little opportunity to hear of
Maud's life. From the first she had
steadfastly refused to see her little brother and Bister and was even unwilling to
receive any message from them, preferring, she said, that all memory of theii
father's family should die out of their
young minds.
They now felt it important to see Maud.
if possible, while Eustace was with them,
and therefore, acting at once in accordance with their views of duty, Mr. and
Mrs. Newton, accompanied by Eustace
and Lillian, wont next day to the city.
They barred from a friend that after
two years of strifo and bitterness, death
had at last separated this miserable pair.
Mr. Varney had been dead but a short
time. At his marriage ho settled a liberal sum upon his young wife and then
made a will leaving her solo possessor of
all his wealth at his death. Hiul she
treated the foolish old man with even
common kindness he was so infatuated
with her beauty he would have made no
change. But though she had sold herself and bartered all her hopes of happiness for riches she could not sufficiently
control her loathing and contempt to secure that for which she had risked so
much.
With his violent temper It took but a
few short weeks to open her husband's
eyes to bis folly and to destroy all affection for and pride in her, and so his
maudlin love turned to tho bitterest hate.
In his dotage he had become like some
fieree animal in his anger, and her lift-
was wretched past description. His
cruelty she met by biting taunts and the
most exasperating language till at
length she so outraged him that for her
own safety she left the house and went
to reside at some fashionable resort.
Mr. Varney had long been falling, and
when the excitement of her presence was
over he sank rapidly. One of his las*
acts was to destroy the old will and inakt
a new one, by which he deprived her of
everything but what she could legally
claim. So when summoned to bia dying
bed it was to find that the palatial home
with its royal furnishings, the spacious
grounds  and  splendid   equipages  had

THE ART OF SHOPPING
The art of shopping is not necet-sarily to make at- all times a good bargain, but to secure a fair equivalent of the money spent, and to be able to do
this with the least expenditure of time and tr uhle.
A   G-OO.T3   _3_^_I^Gr_A.I__T
Is distiiig ished from a cheap bargain, but in these days of bargains and bargain-days, when from one end of Canada to the other yea, and the
United States, too���the nev.spt.pers are rying har^ains���and we read about bargains in this thing, and bargains in that thing, when bargains are by
many more to be sought afier than wisd< m, and when every dealer in the country from the "peanut vendor" to the "merchant prince" call- everything
a bargain���in these days it is not so easy to distinguish a good bargain from the cheap one.
THE ORESTTLT   OJE1   SBCO^^IISTG-
Should be a feeling of satisfaction with the goods purchased.      A sense of having accomplished what you set out to do, and that in a reasonable
and sensible manner.    Not a tired-td-deabh feeling, and an uncertainty as co whether that forty-nine cent article was worth fifty cents after all.
"WE   S-A-^_T   THAT   T__��_U  "^^C   II__I___.__T
Who desires to make an art of shopping will fasten her faith to the store that proposes to give her always the cash value for her money.      It is for
the trade of all who desire good bargains, as we distirguish them, that we work.
