Growing Feeble.
London, Dec. 16.���Conservative reports
have it that Parliament is about to be dissolved on the issue of the Local Government bill. The ministers are riding for a
fall, say the op posit ion. Several reasons
are given for this polioy. The cabinet have
been pressed into a close corner, owing to
the hopelessly backward state of parliamentary business. They dread the bad
budget which the Chancellor of the Exchequer is about to present; they are torn
by internal dissensions, in short, they are in
such a deplorable condition generally that
they will welcome U.e end in preference to
further attempts to cat ry out their legislative programme.
Mr. Goshen, Chancellor of the Exchiquer
in the last Salisbury cabinet, s*id in a speech
at the United Service Club last evening,
that he believed the Liberal Unionist and
Conservative organizers were acting upon
the conviction that the general election
would be held in February. There is little
doubt that the campaign leaders of
the opposition are in a ferment of preparation for an appeal to the conntry, yet all
this bother has not the smallest basis.
There no indication on the ministerial side
that a dissolution is contemplated,and nothing occurring in public or private justifies
the expectations of the unionists. The
Liberal elect01 ate executive is in a a'.ate of
comparative inaction. All the Liberal whips
are forewarning the members that the
House, upon resuming work after the
Chiistmus recess, will sit until the Parish
Councils bill will be passed, and then, after
the briefest rest will take up tbe rest ol the
Government programme.
Mr. Gladstone's statement concerning an
increase of the navy will not go beyond announcing his recognition of the necessity
that England's superiority on the sea shall
be maintained. The amount of the extraordinary naval credit to be demanded by the
Government has uot yet be*; determined.
It will not be less thun ��8,000,000 and according to surmise ae to the admiralty
reports on lhe subject, is likely to approximate ��12,000,000. It is certain at all
events, that the cabinet has decided upon
stalwart measures.
The Unemployed.
The unemployed have changed their tune
since the Trafalgar square crowd chased
them away last Sunday. At Tower Hill
yesterday, Williams meekly advised his
hearers to say nothing about the bombs, as
these v,ere not needed in a free country.
The unemployed, he added, ought not to
transgress the limits of the law. This language both surprised and displeased his
audience. The French government is consulting with lhe Foreign Office as to the
expulsion of anarchists from France, and
Scotland Yard detectives have been despatched to lhe large ports to co-operate
with French officials in identifying and
watching the exiles.
Nihilism Not Anarchism.
Stepniak, the noted refugee nihilist, rebutted in an interview to-day the charge
that nihilists were the same as anarchists.
Russia was the only great country in
Europe, he said, where tnere was neither
freedom of speech nor a pretence of representative iustiiutions The nihilists were
constantionalists. They wished to get rid
of Russian autocracy aud obtain representative government through which reforms
could be carried out in a lawful parliamentary manner. He added that while disapproving of the recent dynamite plots, he
felt it was not right to restrain in any way
freedom of speech, as the restrictive laws
created an atmosphere of discontent in
which violence thrived.
In the case of Nolan and Meara, suspected
of complicity in lhe last dynamite plot in
Dublin, the police will rely on evidence
given by au informer who suspects he has
been associated with dynamite plotters who
have been al work in New York. The law
obliges the Crown to corroborate an informer's statement* and the police are having
such great difficulty iu fulfilling thia requirement, that they were obliged to get the
prisoners remanded. The identity of the'
informer has beeu kept secret, but ho is
believed to be one of the Dublin police who
was dircharged and went to New York,
where he remained several years before
returning and entering the secret service of
Dublin castle.

Germany Having Trouble With  French
Spies   Kaiser Wilhelm's Doings.
Berlin, Deo 1G.���The sentences of the
two French spies, who were tried in Leipsic,
were known here at 5:30 this afternoon, and
were approved generally by military men.
Some sympathy is felt for the prisoners, as
their frankness throughout the trial has
shown them to be no h'red spies, but men
acting up to their ideas of duty. The emperor will prohalily remit part of each sentence, especially if the French departments
of war and manre are serdir-.g spies to Germans, ^s i* !*���, bVei cli ��pies are discovered
by German officials almosL every week, and
are hunted along the frontier and eventually
driven back. Some older hands, still unknown to the German authorities, have
supplied the outlines which the prisoners
had of the fortifications, and tilled in.
Franco seems to have perfected a system of
skilled espionage.
The fdalle Gazette, some time ago, officially inspired, s.ys that Prussia will intervene in the federal council in favor of the
proposal to repeal the law against the
Jesuits. The Prussian ministers maintain
absolute tileuce on the subjtel aud it ia
understood are still negotiating with the
clerical leaders as regards the conditions of
repeal.
The emperor has drawn up a plan of the
winter manoeuvres, and has invited Prince
Regent Leopold of Bavaria and the kings of
Saxony and Wurtemburg to accompany him
in observing their execution. The garrisons
in and art uu't B rlin will be alarmed and
will be hurried on foot and by rail to
bivouac in the fields. All the movements of
the troops will be within the boundaries.
The officers and men who have heard of the
plan are not pleased with it.
While hunting in Barby, Prussian Saxony,
this week, the emperor had the men of the
26th regiment act as beaters. Six men followed him, handing him loaded rifles as fast
as he fired.    In two hours he ahot 385 hares.
Iu a concert at the new palace in Potsdam
this week, the trumpeters blew through
their new seven-foot tubes. The emperor
himself conducted the orchestra, when it

Ottawa, Dec. 16.���The appointment of a

will be considered at once by the Cabinet.
It is likely that. Judge Palmer nf the Supreme Court of the province will get it. At

No Confirmation.
Montreal, Dec. 16.���A special cable to
the Star from London says: Enquiries in
official circles fail to confirm the well authenticated rumors of a large shipment of
ateel rails arouud Cape Horn to British Columbia. There is no official record of an insurance policy yet 'taviog been opened.

teulay Cordiugly's handsome brown tand-
stone bb ck, on Cumberland street, is to-day
a mass of smoking ruins. The fire broke
out about 4 a.m., aud as it started either in
the basement or tirBt story it was impossible

valued at $10,000, aud was insured in the
North British f���r $4,000.
A REPUBLIC TO BE ESTABLISHED
In Hawaii  and   Thurston Goes   to Help
It Along.
Oakland, Cal., Dec. 16.���The Enquirer
this evening says Hawaiian Minister Tours-
ton sailed yesterday on the Bteamer Alameda for Honolulu for a more important
purpose than to report "no progress." Last
Thursday Thurston was a visitor in Oakland, spending the evening at the house of
a gentleman who has heavy interests in the
Hawaiian islands. There was assembled to
meet him quite a company of gentlemen,
former residents of Hawaii, and Thurston
unbosomed himself, r-peaking with perfect
frankness about his mission in going
there. Perhaps he thought that the time
had couie when he no longer cared to make
a a'.cret of it. To put ii iu the briefest
form, Tnuision is going to Honolulu to
assist in another revolution. That is to aay,
he is goin^ to aid in substituting for the
present provisional or temporary government, a permanent government with a
written constitution, which shall make
Hawaii a republic, and a free and independent nation. All idea of seeking annexation
is to be abandoned for the present at least,
and the republic of Hawaii ia to be established, thus ending uncertainty in the
Islands.
The gist of confidential information which
Minister Thuraton carries back to Honolulu,
no doubt is that nothing is to be expected
from the government at Washington, and
that, therefore, the wisest course for the
provisional government is to utilize its present strength and popularity to establish a
form of government which shall be a permanency. This might not be so easy to do,
if delay and uncertainty were allowed to go
on until dissensions creep in and sap the
strength of president Dole's administration.
As an illustration of hie spirit, Thurston
said: "I don't know but what it would be a
good thing if there should be a little fighting down there. It would unite the people."
By this he was understood to mean collisions between the United StateB forcea
and the provisional government. He was
asked if he thought the royalists
would come over and unite with the pro-
visionalista if the government were
made a permanency. and to this he replied: "No, the royalists must be stamped
out, aud kept in ignorance aB to the details
of the new constitution or how it would be
promulgated." Thuraton said nothing, but
he admitted that the serious obstacle was
the suffrage queition, the natives being
friendly to their queen. He referred to the
Portuguese settlers, of whom there are
seven or eight thousand who might be voters,
aud said he thought tney would stand with
the new governeut, and that the Japanese,
if admitted to suffrage, would do the
same. He seemed to think that by the help
of theae and other foreign born elements, it
might be possible to hold the natives down,
even if they were given the ballot. One of
the company present was a prominent lawyer and wiih him Thurston had some interchange of views about the method of promulgating the new constitution and organizing
a form of government which would secure
recognition from foreign powers. Both
gentlemen (Tnurston himself is a lawyer)
agre d that if "the provisional government
made i; clear that it was only a de facto
government, that its power in the islands was
absolute and undisputed, any constitution
promulgated in its name and any officers,
chosen under it would have a right to recognition uudcr the principles of the international law. Another interesting fact
which came out during the evening was
that Thurstou wanted to take back with
him to the islands as many Hawaiians
or holders of property interests iu the
islands who were trustworthy, as hs
could get to go. Mr. Castle, who
left Ann Harbor, Mich., to accompany
Thurston, was present and not only coincided with what Thurston said, but avowed
that he would take part in setting up the
new form of government and implied that
he was going home for no other purpose.

Charlottktown, P.E.I., Deo. 15.���In

Blount Annoyed.
Macon, Ga., Dec. 16���Mr. Blount is
very much annoyed over the report that
President Cleveland intends to throw the
onus of his treatment of the Hawaiian
ijueBtion upon himself. He said: "It is untrue that 1 have had any dispute with the
president because I was not continued in
the diplomatic service. I went to Hawaii
as commissioner representing the president.
When I was appoiuted minister, 1 immediately resigred it, and my work being done
returned home. The statement that Minister Willis found the Dole government much
stronger than I reported it, is nothing
strange when you recall that 1 left Honolulu in August and that Willis did not
reach there until November, Dole thus had
over three months in which to strengthen
himself, and it is only reasonable to suppose
that he mado good use of the time. I parted with President Cleveland on the beBt of
terma and am now completely out of public
life."
A Female Desperado.
North Enid, Oklahoma, Dec. 16 ���"Tom
King," the notorious female horse and cattle
thief, who escaped from the El Reno jail
last week, witn the aid of a deputy who
eleped with her, stood off five deputy
United States marshalls and sheriff on Wednesday night, who had tiaoked her to her
lair. She escaped, as she haB on every occasion when hard pressed by the law. The
Yukon blood hounds that were placed on
her track were killed by her unerring rifle,
and she had plenty of time to stop arid pin
onto the body of one of the lifeless btutea a
note saying the sime fate would be meted
out to all who attempted to capture her.
The woman is a dead shot with rifle or
revolver and tides astride with the ease and
grace of an accomplished horseman. She
haB Cherokee blood in her veins and to that
is attributed her success in eluding her pursuers. Riding and roughing it out doors
and undergoing hardships few men could endure have given her rather a hardened appearance, but despite this she is quite
comely aud has tine eyes. She is an intelligent woman and speaks English and several
Indian languages fluently. She is 2'J years
old and was reared near Springfield, Mo.
Excitement in Honolulu.
SaK Francisco, Dec. 16.���The Australian
brings advices to Deo. 9th. The excitement
iB at fever heat, but up to that time no
change had taken place in the situation.
The United Press correspondent at Honolulu, writing under date of Dec. 9th Bays:
Since the fifth no material change haa taken
place in the military or political altitude of
the different parties. The ijueeu's adherents
are being secretly armed. Marshal is satisfied that over two hundred new Winchester
rifles have been worked into Honolulu in
small lotB from the Island of Maui
during the paat month and distributed to royalists. Tho police force, under
the marshal, is now larger and in
a higher state of organization than ever
before. Vigilant watch is kept on the movements of royalists. One hundred men of
the citizens' reserve are selected aud will
reinforce the station house at a moment's
call. The royalists ex press feeling that on
the arrival of the Alameda on the 22nd
Minister Willia will carry out Mb ordera to
reinstate the queen and her government. It
ia not believed that they will make any independent or premature attack upon the
strong position of the government. After a
hearing of two daya in the oaae of Wunden-
buge the cupreme court ordered Mb removal
from office. The court found that Wunden-
buge had violently denounced the provisional government and its chief offioers,
and stated that it was impressed
with a view that he had done so becauae of
hia disappointment at not having been made
marahal. In his testimony he denied ever
having been an anexationiat. It ia certain
however, that he vehemently favored annexation at tho time of the Aahford and Wilcox
conapiracy for annexation nearly two years
ago, when most of the reform party oppoaed
it as premature and hoped to be able to induce the queen to be reasonable. The leading political event of the week ia the decision of the government to proceed to remove
all employes not diBtincly loyal to them.
Thia decision was arrived at by a vote of
the advisory council in regular and open
seaaion on the 7th.

Bamboo Furniture.
Few things are artistic and desirable for
furnishing, especially in summer, as bamboo. It is a truly wonderful material, combining strength and lightness in a manner
Unequaied by either metal or timber.
BAMBOO BOOKCA8*.
Hatstands, newspaper racks, fancy baskets, music stands, cabinets, fancy tables,
flower stands, writing tables, lamp stands,
Roman chairs, overmantels, screens, etc.,
are produced in bamboo work, and the
manufactured articles are characterized by
the admirable qualities of lightness, artistic grace and utility, as will be seen from
our illustration, reproduced from The Decorator and Furnisher, which is simplicity
itself. Bamboo furniture ia usually finished in gilt or lacquer.
Hints From Country Gentleman.1*   ���"*
Food spoils much more quickly in damp,
muggy weather than in a much higher
temperature, if dry.
Open vessels containing charcoal placed
In a refrigerator or other closet where food
Is kept will do much to keep it dry and
���weet. The charcoal should be renewed at
least every fortnight.
An open vessel of drinking water placed
In the ice chamber of a refrigerator is sure
to absorb odors from the food below. Put
the water in bottles, or, what is more convenient, in glass screw top fruit jars.
Water pitchers and all dishes in which
drinks or food are to be served cold should
be placed in tbe ice chest an hour before
they are needed.
All fruits should be served aa cold and
fresh as possible and with granulated
rather than powdered sugar.
The down on peaches is poisonous tosome
people and should be carefully wiped off.
This fruit looks far more tempting oot in
halves than in small pieces.
Meat and other articles of food that are
Samp or juicy should never be left in paper.
Refreshing Drinks.
Lemon Beer���Cut half a dozen lemons
Into slices and put in a jar with a pound of
���agar and a gallon and a half of boiling
���rater. Let stand until cool and add half a
rap of fresh yeast; let ferment; bottle and
eork very tight.
Soda Beer���Take 2 pounds of white sugar,
I ounces of tartaric acid, 3 spoonfuls of flour,
the whites of 10 eggs, the juice of a lemon
iod 2 quarts of water, boil three minutes
u��l bottle when cold. When wanted for
use, put 2 spoonfuls in a glass, with half a
teaspoouf ul of soda, and fill with ioe water.
Daked Omelet.
Heat *8 tablespoon fuIs of milk and melt a
small piece of butter in it. Do not let it oil.
Take t) eggs, beat the yolks with a teaspoonful of salt, a dash of pepper and a table-
ipoouful of flour. Stir into the hot milk,
adding last the stiffly beaten whites, a little
parsley and pour into a well buttered iron
spider. Put into a hot oven. In a few minutes it will be rieen firmly and delicately
browned. Slip on a platter, folding it in
the middle.

MUNICIPAL AFFAIRS.
We again draw the attention of the citizens to the fact that the time for holding the
municipal elections is fast approaching, and
that arrangements should be promptly made
for putting euitable candidates  in the field.
The matter ought not to  be left to the  last
moment,   under   the   impression that  any
candidate that offers is good enough for the
position, that one candidate is in tact pretty
much the   same  as   another if   only he is a
man of decently   respectable   character and
plain common sense.     It is not so, the position of a municipal  councillor is in reality a
most responsible one, and the council ought
to be filled with the best men available,men
of energy and intelligence who will have the
best interests of Nanaimo at heart, who will
understand   what   those interests   are, and
exert themselves to promote them.    We do
not want  demagogues   representing only a
class, or pretending  to  do bo,  aud  who, if
what they choose to   regard   as the  special
interests    of    their   class   are   promoted,
do    not   care     what     becomes     of     the
rest.    We   want    men   of    reliable   character,    not   adventurers,   men    who   have
a solid interest  in   the   town,   aud   whose
prudence and success in managing their own
affairs would be some guaiantee  that   they
would manage well those  of the   city   also.
Many important  works  and  improvements
will have to bo undertaken next year.    Take
for example the  condition   of   the   streets.
Would it not be for the benefit of   the   city
and for its credit to   improve   them?   It  is
not too much to say that the   condition   of
our chief business thoroughfare   all   winter
has beeo disgraceful.    Give us a good council and it will after a   while   give   us   good
streets and keep  them   clean   aud   decent.
Other matters could be]mentioued.    Give us
the right men in the City Council  aud Nanaimo will before long blossom into a   model
city, instead of being as at   present   one   of
the dirtiest, most neglected, and most backward looking in all British   Columbia.    No
doubt much has beeu  accomplished  in   the
past but the much more  that   should   have
been done but which has been left undoue is
what has let other cities in the province out
distance Nanaimo in the  race  of   progress.
We want manufacturing-iuduBtriea  here  to
work iu hand with  our   great   coal  mining
industry.    A live board of   aldermen  oould
do much to promote   the  starting   of   such
institutions here.    Nanaimo in  the past has
been too apathetic to her importance, or as a
prominent business man remarked last evening, there is not enthusiasm euough here.
possibility of legislation favourable to silver.
The silver men may proceed with their
plans for future campaigns, but in the
present state of public opinion it will be
wise not to aim at too much. It might be
possible to obtain the remonetization of
silver, but more than that would not be
practicable. The Sherman Act practically
gave the silver men a bonus, which had to
be paid by the rest of the community. The
American people, though many of them
would like to see silver again made legal
tender, will have no more Sherman acts. It
will be wise of the silver men not to Beek
any special privilege for their commodity,
but only fair play. If they consult the
counsels of moderation they may before long
be able to secure the right of silver to its
ancient privileges as a mouey metal, but we
do not kuow that the advocates of silver
will ever again be able to tax the rest of the
community at large in order to keep the
silver mines going.

ohoniB was particularly gooi!    Tho tinkers'      now KNOW YE, that for divers causes and consid-
chorus was good, aod the business of Messrs.
Chariton, Field, Bate, Johnson, Fowler and
Charlton in this item is to be commended.
Mr. Charlton in the armorer's song was
decidedly successful. The quintette following went well, and the closing chorus
went with a vim and harmony
that merited the applause it gained.
OuriDg the interludes Mr. Newman did
good business with a clever parody on After
the Ball, entitled When Will the Ball be
Over? He also gave another song besides
and recited the Wreck of the Hesperus.
The makeup in the choruses, considering
the material at hand, waB very creditable,
aud the stage business well carried out. St.
Paul's choir, its assisting friends and Mrs.
Davis are to be congratulated, on the success of their efforts.
The Y. M. C. A. wish to thank the
membere of the choir, and all thoso who
took part in the entertainment, for the success of the evening.
A bill has been passed by the French
Chamber of Deputies granting a credit of
800,000 francs, equivalent to about ?3*J,000,
to the police, to enable them Btill further to

roused every government in Europe, against
anarchism, and its only effect has been to
place fresh weapons in the hands of its
enemies.
Refused tbe Application.
Toronto, Dec. 16.���The government refused the application of Samuel Luckey for
the possession of the body of his brother
who was executed at Brockville yeBtorday,
having ruled at the time of too B:ichall case
that where there is room within the jail
walls the bodies of exeouted prisoners must
be buried there.
A Cbicf Justice Dead.
MONTREAL, Dec. IB.���Hon. Wm. Austin, the late chief justice of the Bahama
Islands, whosa conflict of authority with
Sir Ambrose Shea, the Governor of the
islands, created much comment about four
years ago, died iu this city to-day at the
age of 68. He had been living here in retirement since he left, the Bahamas.
Lagrippe was the cause of his death.
That, advanced aud zealous advocate of
republicanism and democracy anil professed
friend of the workingman, Andrew Carnegie,
is preparing to make another big cut in the
wages paid to his men. Skilled workmen
Betting $4 to 85 a day will be reduced 40
per cent., and ordinary mill operatives now
paid ��2.SO a day will be reduced to ��2. Mr.
Carnegie will be likely to see another strike
in progress and more shooting.
Admiral De Gama, who now commands
the insurgent fleet in the harbor of Rio, has
issued a proclamation to his followers, complimenting them for their bravery aud full
of the usual florid references to liberty.
President Peixoto, on the other hand, has
put forth a proclamation denouncing De
Gama as a traitor. In the meantime unhappy Brazil continues to suffer, and the
miserable people, over whose fate these warlike politicians are contending, without any
regard at all to their true interests, may
well exclaim "a plague of both your houses,"
and pray earnestly to be delivered fr >m
both of them.
Prominent silver leaders have been holding a meeting in Washington oity for the
purpose of raising money and devising
means to secure a silver majority in the
next Congress. It was expected to raise
$100,000 to begin a silver propaganda. We
have not seen it stated what the
result of the meeting was, but it is admitted that the anti silver majority in the
present congress is so large as;to preclude all

THE PROPOSED AMALGAMATION
Ol   Provincial   Pilotage    Boards - How
Shipping Men in Vancouver View It.
The following lengthy despatch to the
Victoria Colonist, from Vancouver, apropoi
of the recently proposed amalgamation of
pilotage boards in the province, may be of
interest to local shipping masteis and men:
Marine men are talking about little else
than the proposed amalgamation of the
pilotage boards. C.Gardiner Johnson and
the aea captains in port were interviewed by
your correspondent. Mr. Johnson is secretary of the local pilots, and was very obliging in thoroughly explaining the present
pilotage system.
Producing a score of charts, and going
thoroughly into details, Mr. Johnson consented to be quoted as saying the proposed
amalgamation scheme seemed to him impracticable and unreasonable aa he understood it. According to his ideas there
would be no pilot station at Point Atkinson
where compulsory pilot dues could be
charged fur this port, but the entire fourteen
pilots would cruise in a cutter between
Cape Flattery and Race Rocka. He asked:
Could oue cutter attend to ail the shipping?
Could not vessels easily escape them? Would
not pilotage dues have to be increased to
meet the extra expense occasioned by the
building and running of a new cutter, if said
duea could be collected? As pilots are
obliged to own not lees than three tons in a
pilot bbat, would not the government be
obliged lo make this up to the pilots, iu
case of the proposed change coming into
effect? Ia it possible to compel a vessel
signalled at Cape Flattery   to pay  pilotage?
These   questions   Mr.   Johnaon   thought
should be well considered before any action
waa taken.    He did uot think they could be
satisfactorily answered.    As far as the Vancouver   board   was   concerned,  they   were
satisfied   with   the present  system,   which
had but one flaw���vessels were  not obliged *
to pay half pilotage if  the   pilots   failed to
signal them off thu bouudary between Point |
Atkinson   and   the   rod   buoy off   Spanish I
Bank.    Some United States  vessels  taking j
advantage of this had put out   their lightB
on a dark night aud slipped arouud Spanish j
bank unseen, afterwards reporting they had
not been signalled and therefore  would uot
pay   half   pilotage,  about   $2 a foot.    Mr.
Jobusou thought that if a compulsory fee of
$3 was   charged, pilot   or   no   pilot,   there
would be no  more playing 'possum  around
Spanish bank on a dark night.
The following captains were interviewed
in the haudsoniely furuished cabin of the
ship Benjamin Sewell, of Boston:���Capt.
Sewell, ot tbe Benjamin Sewell; Capt. Sundae, of the Germauie, Norway; Capt. Gibson, of tbe Colorado, San Frauciaco; Capt.
Lee, of the Templar, San Faiucisco; Capt.
I'lliiiini, of the W. H. Talbot, San BVan-
cisco; Capt. Petersou, of the Kclipae, San
l Francisco; Capt. Markinsoti, of the Snow
aud liurgeaa, San Francisco; I apt. Bastaiu-
son, of the ship Bfaconslield, England.
The opinion expressed by tbe pilots in
session is: 1. If the Province of British
Columbia is determined to txact compulsory
pilotage fe-ja to its own disadvantage, any
variance from the present system would not
be desired by the captains, particularly
from San Francisco, as il would entail more
expense. This would oblige them to give
British Columbia a wide berth, takingSouud
porta in preference, where no pilotage ia
charged, or even Portland with its high fees,
which, everything considered, ia not more
expensive than here. As an average of
$4,000 is spent by each ship while in port, it
is felt that British Colmbia should be slow
in increasing the dues, for as it ia oue captain
among those present had notified his owners
not to load here on accnuut of high pilot
fees, which average about $200 a ship, an
amount that would buy considerable meat
for a long voyage. 2. Towboats are all that
are necessarv from Flattery to Vancouver,
Victoria or Nanaimo. The captains said ihey
fell Bafe wheu they were steering after a
tow boat. Pilot service should be optional.
3. It would be well to put lhe pilots on the
tow boats, if a change is contemplated. 4.
If the pilots rates are increaaed an understanding between United States vessels will
no doubt be the outcome, and the authorities will be forced to come lo time or the
vessels will go elsewhere for their charters.
5. The system of charging by the boat is
preferred, as a boat coming m ballast geti a
fair show.
From aa much as can be ascertained of the
working of the proposed amalgamation of
pilot boards the old pilotage boundaries arc
to be wiped out, and the fourteen  pilots are

to cruiae in a cutter off Flattery, between
Rase Rocks and Flattery, and apeak incoming veasels, for the purpose of collecting
compulsory pilot fees This is juat what
American captaina would benefit by. They
would be signalled, "Where aro you going?"
Answer, "Port Angeles." They would sail
in United States waters to Port Angeles,
thence to Vancouver or whatever British
Columbia port they desired, quite unmolested by the pilots, but if the old boundaries are to be retained, aud the compulsory
fees increased under the proposed new system, then American vessela will atop coming
here, entailing a large pecuniary loaa to each
port.

Winter Weather East.
Montreal, Dec. 16.��� Crossing on the ice
opposite the city before Christmas is now
almoat a certainty, unless there be a decided modification in the weather. The firat
crossing last year was made on the ice with
loaded sleighs from Longueuil to Montreal
on Decemher 31st. The first crossing in the
winter of 1891-2 was not made until Febru
ary 2nd.
The city's water revenue will be larger
this year than ej'er, despite the reduced
rates. Official8 consider thin due, firs':, to
the growth of the city, and, secondly, to the
general interest displayed by all sections iu
the approaching election contest.
Collecting Canceled Stamps.
What is apparently more useless than
canceled postage stamps? And yet there
is a store on Michigan avenue where
they seem to be in demand. One of tho
windows is entirely heaped up with
present day United States stamps, mostly of the 2 cent denomination. There
must be thousands of them, and the observer can only wonder what in the
world can be their value. They cannot
possess any particular Interest to the
stamp collector, for they are neither
rare nor valuable. To the ordinary person the canceled 2 cent postage stamp
seems a worthless thing indeed. Prices
paid for such Btamps, however, are 10
cents per 1,000, $1 per 10,000, and $13
per 100,000. Many au industrious lad
will probably be moved by this offer (as
the appearance of the window indeed
testifies), and yet tho immense labor of
collecting 100,000 Btamps can be appreciated.
Vet during the Centennial Btamps'
wero bought in tho same manner, and
those who purchased them are today
reaping a handsome profit, for th** Centennial postage stamp haa increased won-
derfully in value in a canceled condition during the last few years. A> time
Hies mi stamps increase greatly in value,
* pecially stamps issued for om* year
only on a special occasion like the Centennial or fair. To show how vain:! 1*9
a stamp may become, the writer nf thia
may mention the fact that eight yeara
ago he purchased a first issue English
envelope stamp in London for $7.50, and
it was at that time worth a great deal
more in this country. Now it has probably increased still more.���Detroit Free

A Matter for Regret.
It will be remembered that at the A. O.F.
celebration at New Westminster on July
23rd last, Messrs. Albert and James Deeming of this city won respectively first prize
in the mile obstacle race; second prize in a
two-mile handicap, and first in a race for a
purse of $25. Although nearly five months
have elapsed Bince then the Messrs. Deeming have not received their prizes, and have
now, as a last resott, placed the matter in
the hands of Messrs. Yarwood k Young,
their solicitors, with instructions to collect
the amount of the prizes.
Football on the Swamp.
An interesting local football match took
place yesterday afternoon on the swamp
between the teams captained by Messrs.
Fisher and Bamforth. The match resulted
in a tie, each side scoring a try; Bamforth's
team securing the point in the firBt half, the
ball being touched down by Mat Duffy: and
Lister's team scoring after the change of
ends. The two teams were very evenly
balanced and the play throughout was excellent, the three-quarters on both sides
showing up well, whilst the forwards played
in good form. The game was a fast one with
a lot of loose scrimmaging, and some very
good dribbling by both sides.
Little Puck.
That droll comedian, Frank Daniels, who
is to appear at the Opera House, Wednesday next, is one of ihe most popular low
comedians on the American stage, and hus
earned the distinction by good, hard, conscientious work. His scenic revival of Little
Puck is said to be a great improvement over
the old version. Mr. D.niels has been seen
so many times in the character of Packing-
ham Giltedge that the pen splashes in endeavoring to record a new Bensation which
he inspires. The impersonation is certainly
one of the drollest to be seen in this last
decade of the century, rich in theatrical
drollery. It is one of those few pieces of
nonsensical acting which may be seen over
and over again without satiety. Reserved

A New Theory of Sleep.
Some discussion has been going on
concerning Herr Rosenbaum's recently
proposed theory of sleep���namely, that
the anremic condition of tbe brain is aue
to an excess of water in the brain cells
of that body. The supposition, as stated,
is that sleep is essentially a matter of
nervous action, and the direct cause is
thought to be fatigue of the nerve cells
which communicate with the heart and
bring abont some change in the circulation. The nerve cells are thus supposed
to be full of water when sleep comes on,
and this water during sleep passes into
the venous blood as waste, and the nerve
cells then receive nourishment from
fresh arterial blond. Then when the process is entiri ly over the sleeper awakes.
According to this theory, sleep is not
solely healthy because it rests the body
and brain, but also because it invigorates them. It is also to be inferred
from Rosenbaum's theory that tin* nerve
cells ami brains of infants who sleep so
much must contain more water than is
to In* found in those of adults, and that
thi effectiveness of brain cells is in inverse ratio to the water contents.���New
York Tribune.
Odd Insurance.
There is in existence a legitimate
"graveyard" company, It is a company
operating entirely among the very poor
and insures a man against pauper burial.
The agents of the company put it in less
disagreeable terms and offer simply to
guarantee decent burial.
The company engages to furnish a
grave in a cemetery and see that the insured is respectfully interred therein.
If any member of his family dies before
him, lie is given a deed to a lot in which
he may bury his dead.
Some of the large companies issue a
policy covering losses from defective
title, defalcations by partner, agent or
other employee for which a firm may be
liable, damage by storm, losses caused
by accident to or by steam boilers, engines, lifts, steam pipes, automatic sprinklers or other specified machinery, including all kinds of machinery in use.���
Boston Globe.
To Stop a Trolley Car Instantly.
A Rochester man has devised a plan
by which a trolley street car can be
stopped almost instantaneously, or within a space of three feet, while the car is
going at full speed. His device is operated by a lever in the niotorman's cab.
It is, generally speaking, a steel shoe,
upon which the rear wheels of the car
ride, the under side of which is corrugated so as to produce great friction
upon the rails of the track. On the top
of the shoe is an arrangement which, as
soon as the wheel rises upon the shoe,
clamps the outer rim of the wheel and
at the same time grasps the inner edge
of the rail. The simple weight of the car
crowds down the shoe upon the rail and
at the same time clamps together, as in
a vise, the wheel and the rail, and ail
this by a single movement on the part of
the iuotorinan.���New York Telegram,
Simple Words tho llest.
The following little story is told of a
citizen of Port Chester, N. Y., whose education was somewhat superior to his
wife's, a fact regarding which she was
very sensitive.
On one occasion the man drove over to
White Plains to inquire regarding the
health of his sister-in-law, who was dangerously ill. Upon returning he was
met by his wife, who asked of her sister's condition.
''She is convalescent," replied the man.
Immediately and in the most emphatic
manner the woman cried out: "I want
none of your soothing words. I want
facts. You tell me this minute, Is my
Bister dead or alive?"���New YorkHerahj.
The Farmer Was Forgetful.
The Berwick man who took several

lie sure of that. Wot deserve my love I
Why, what in thunder���"
"I'll vouch lor her. Ben," struck in
Laura hastily. "Dorothy will always
deserve your love."
"I mean," said Dorothy explanatorily,
"that yon show it more than I can. Yon
give me all; 1 have given you so little���
nothing, not even���"
She faltered, turned crimson as she
felt Laura's warning glance, and stammered on:
"All the while yon were away yon
���were thinking of me, and���and loving
me."
Ben Dundas nodded encouragingly.
"That's down in the log. Aud wasn't
you always a-thinking of me, and amoving of me? If not, tie me up at the gangway and give me twenty dozen with a
new rope's end!"
"Indeed you have always been in her
thoug'i.'.:-," said Laura, hating herself for
the equivocation, hut impelled to justify
her sister, and hinder the useless and deplorable avowal which she saw trembling upon Dorothy's lips.
"It's no small thing for an angel like
this, that all the world's envying me,"
Dundas went on, "to track her rough
husband on the chart of the Southern
"SHE'S STRUCK IT! LOOK,LAURA I"
Seas. Why, folks wouldn't believe that
all the time I ve been away my Dorrie
here was longing forme, praying for me
to come back safe, as if there weren't no
other man alive.
"A lubber says to me says he: 'Why,
Captain,' he says, 'your wife won't want
you back none .too soon. A sailor's got
a wife in every port, and a sailor's wife,
when her husband goes to sea, ain't long
without consolation.'I drove the words
down the liar's throat and three of his
teeth with 'em for company.
"I knew my Dorothy would be true as
the needle of a compass, and to prove
my trust in her I've brought my lass
these pearls, which I've heard tell must
only be given to the good and pure."
As he spoke, he sought to clasp the
necklet round Dorothy's throat. It was
too much. A heart that was all too vulnerable to such stabs could contain its
agony no longer.    With u wild burst of
grief the remorseful wife thrust the gift
from her and sank down at his feet,
"Take them back I Take them baoki
My God! pearls are not for me!"
CHAPTER XVIL
SCARLET T
Bon Dundas recoiled in amarement.
Under the weather-beaten ruddiness of
his face he grew pale as the pearls in his
hand.
For a moment Laura believed that the
dreaded destruction had come upon that
home, and her heart quailed within her.
Then, with the presence of mind often
born of a critical emergency, she rushed
in to the rescue:
"Hush, Belli don't notice her. She
has beeu hysterical lately. This is nothing to the fancies that take her sometimes. There is a superstition, you
know, about a gift of pearls. It means
misfortune, tears, sho thinks. She has
been reading a story about that, and it
has upset her, 1 suppose. Come, Dorrie,
Dorrie!  don't be so absurd."
Ben Dundas was a man of simple unsuspicious nature. He did not long
hesitate to take this clue to the maze
of his bewilderment, It seemed to him
a reasonabe explanation. What else
could account for his wife's distress?
The remorse that she felt he never
guessed. To doubt his littlo Dorothy
was not possible for him.
s With a woman's tenderness he raised
her in his arms, and laid her, still sobbing^ upon the sofa.
"There, there!" said he, with many a
fertile caress: ' 'lay to a bit, and rise easy,
'orgive me, little women, for being so
thoughtless like. I have beared tell of
some such rubbish, but I'd clean forgot.
Durn the stupid things for making my
lass cry! There ain't nothing in it,
Dorothy; but, howsumdever, we won't
have no plaguy bad luck aboard our
craft. There goes the lumber over the
side!"
And, true to his words, he tossed the
valuable pearls from the window into
the river-mud as indifferently as if they
had been nuts or peas or any trilling
thing.
Laura, deeply cencerned for her sister,
made no attempt to stay him.
"Leave her with me, Ben," 'she whispered; "she will soon be more oalm aad
���ensible."
With a good humoured wink and
chuckle, Dundas reached for an old favourite pipe that had hung by the fireplace
all through the eight months of his absence, and rolled quietly out of the room.
When ho was out of hearing. Laura
expostulated bitterly and passionately,
but in suppressed tones, with her trembling sister, who, impressed by the
narrow escape she had had, and grateful
for Laura's timely service, grew calmer,
and gave somo attention to her words.
"But how could ; listen unmoved to
such reproach wv" Doro hy plea ii 1 at
length.' "(Jfh ty wt re I , '".. b������- -yes,
again and again he btabbeii me with the
kind things he said. Ofcoursi be could
not undersiand how guilty I felt���bow
guilty 1 :��� ..*���' tlwi-.ys feel so long as I
hide my ivjiiifi Uiess from him."
"Bui vou will uot confess.'1
"I i.>ni-i confess."
"What! T '���'��� i im fchatyoti- ihttyou
have���* Iod knows what wiokedne: a you
have to confess! I have not ba I your
confidence, i do not ask you for it now;
but 1 entreat you to consider well
whether any good can come of your destroying all his happiness and trust in
yon���whether whui /ou have to confess
can ever be for;,-iv?n."
Tiiere was lupe iu Laura's breast, an
earnest faith iu her heart that tlie eino-
tiuiial temperament of her erring sister
m**'ght have exaggerated evil thoughts
into the iii leor.Mitts of guilty acts; that
after all there mignt be extenuation,
pity, piircloh for hor sin.
But an icy chill struck through her
soul as Dorothy turned away from her
with bowed, iiead, and murmured in accents of despair:
"No, no, I cau never be forgiven!"
CHAPTER XVIII.
the Ds'QmsrroRS.
The day wore on, and peace reigned
���Undisturbed in the sailor's home. By the
advice of her si; ter. Dorothy had not imparted to Captain Dundas the knowledge
which would work such havoe in their
future. Nothing had transpired to disquiet her further, and, busied about the
house, she had recovered in a few hours
much of her old spbrtiveness. Urged by
Laura, she made an effort to thrust
away all that stood between *her and a
calm enjoyment of the present hour.
And Dundas, occupied witli decorating
the house and spuming many a yarn
about his voyages, :-��� rue I to have banished from his mind ml uneasiness.
Laura breathed freely, ami took some
comfort from the prospect of the success
of her labours to preserve their happiness. What mattered the enforced
duplicity? The aim was a just one.
The result must be good, she persuaded
herself: "He who is robbed, not wanting what is stolen, let him not know it
and he's not robbed at all." And with
this specious reasoning she set her conscience at rest.
But with that ease of mind came other
thoughts that dismayed and tortured
her. She loved Lord Willmore. The
sight of her brother-in-law's devotion to
his wife brought this conviction freshly
to her heart. Aud how had they parted?
What cruel doubts of her bad-she left
to rankle iu his mind? Was it not clear
from his sudden departure without
leavetaking, and from the subsequent
repulse she had received frOm .Muriel,
that both friend and lover misjudged
her relations with Kestrel'.' Aud had not
her lover's friend, Cecil Chester, actually seen her bestowing an endearment
upon that man'.' Would not Chester
surely confirm Willmore's suspicion, and
must not ttie result be that her lover
would loathe and forsake her?
She felt that she could better bear to
lose him than to be condemned in his
thoughts. But how could she protect
herself from misconstruction���how dispel the cruelly false impression she had
made? Her sister's happiness she must
guard at all costs, and the secret once
told would imperil it from thai moment.
As she gazed into the streei through a
veil ot tears, picturing the bitter sacrifices which seemed forced upon her,
Lord Willmore's love and good opinion
the confidence and affection of Muriel
O'Connor, a cab came rattling up to the
door, and Laura gave forth a big "Ol"
and turned as crimson as the front of
the cabinet piano; for Willmore himself,
in faultless visiting-dress, sprang forth
on to the broken pavement, and contemplated No. Ill Shore Street.
Laura, hidden behind the window-
curtain, watched his face. Would he be
displeased with this humble abode? No,
he seemed rather favorably impressed.
Indeed, he had anticipated finding an
unsightly, perhaps squalid, hovel in such
a quarter of the town.
But the red and the white and the green

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

The lacrosse club holds a meeting in the

It is probable that official engagements
may prevent Premier Davie from attending

A pleasant social evening was spent by
Mr. H. Smith and friends at his residence
on Front street last night.
A miner at Northfield had his leg broken
by a fall of rock on Friday. The case was
attended to by Dr. Bell Campbell.
Two black Sumatras have been refused
entry to the Poultry Show as they were not
entered till after 8 p. m. on Friday.
A Bick horse belonging to Aid. Quennel
waB shot yesterday, and towed outside tbe

The Aberdeen livery stables at Wellington have been sold to parties in Vancouver,
Mr. E. M. Yarwood acting as the local

Henry McKenzie, aged 19, died at the

The turkey shoot at the Beaven Park

Another conference was held yesterday
between the management of the New Vancouver Coal i ompany and representatives of
the Northfield miners in reference to the
nontinucd working of the Northfield mine.

field miners to-day, when some conclusion
may be arrived at.
It is generally hoped by a good many of
the townspeople that a system of fire alarms
will be established in Nanaimo, and a very
simplo plan lias been suggested, entailing
but little expense, as the number of alarm
boxes that would be requisite would not be
great, six or eight being all that are needed.
The plan mentioned was to have each box
fixed on oue of the wire poles already up,
and connected by wire with an indicate- at
the fire hall, each box having a key left at
an adjoining bouse, and the box having
either a push or handle which would ring
the electric bell at the fire station by completing the circuit.

Arrears Want   Paying Up.
At a meeting of officers and committeemen of the Y. M. C. A., held on the 13th
inst., it was resolved that all members of
the association who are in arrears be interviewed to ascertain what amount can be collected; and that they be urged to pay up,
so that the treasurer, Aid. T. Dobeson,
might be able to close the hooks satisfactorily ut the end of the year. If each member
would do his share, this very desirable state
of things would obtain. There is no reason
why some new members would uot be added,
as well aB all the old ones renewed.
