London, Jan. 12.���[Special.]���The report
stage ot the Parish Councils' bill was finished at midnight and Henry Fowler, president of the Local Governmeut Board, who
has had the bill in charge, moved at once
the third reading. Mr. Goschen, Chancellor of the Exchequer in the laat Salisbury
cabinet, said for the Unionists that only the
jaded state of the House caused the opposition to refrain from debating this reading.
He predicted that the Lords would scrutinize the bill closely before allowing it to become a law. The bill was passed amid loud
Liberal cheers and the House adjourned
until February 12.
In an interview concerning the recent
battle of French and English forces near
Warina, Sierra Leone, Sergeant Major
Lamprey Long, an authority on Sierra Leone
affairs, said this evening: "The Sofas,
against whom the British expedition was
supposed to be sent, were not opposing
British interests nor was Captain Lendy,
with his frontier police co-operating with
the French against Chief Samadu. Th*
emissaries of Samadu are actually now in
Freetown, seeking to place his territory
under British protection. Tbe motives behind a British expedition against the Sofas
would therefore be quite inexplicable."
Ninety-four Radical members of the
Hiiu-ii of Cuiiiiniins have signed an address
requesting Sir William Harcourt, Chancellor
of the Exchequer, to revise the present
methods of taxation. They propose
graduated scale of death duties, exempting
estates of less than ��600 and increasing t he
rate on larger estates. Thus while estates
of ��4,000 would be taxed 4 per cent., those
of ��500,000 would be taxed 10 per cent.
According to the Radical plan, real estate
and personal property would be subjected
to tbe same rate of taxation.
The Priests Had a Hand In It.
Rome, Jan 12.���[Special]���Mail advices
from Sicily indicate t hat in several district*
the priests took an active part in promoting
the agrarian movement. In Balla franca
near Catanisetta, the canons of the cathedral rung with their own hands the bells to
summon the people and then exhorted them
to resist the exactions of the officials.
Postal Officials Arrested,
Berlin, Jan. 12.���Special
from Warsaw say tbat the postal officials in
Praszeka, as well as in Rudnik, were arrested for forwarding Nihilist circulars
which emanated from the students' revolutionary society iu Warsaw. Many citizens
of Warsaw and Praezeka who have been
compromised are said to have fled to escape
arrest.
Letter From His Holiness.
Baltimore, Md., Jan. 12.���[Special.]���
The Catholic Mirror in its issue of to-morrow will publish an abstract of the Pope's
recent letter to Bishop Perrault of France,
in which his holiness reiterates his former
cautions to French Catholics that they remain loyal to the Republic. The holy
faiher says: "Since the meroiful providence of God has instituted us the sentinel
of Hia church it is just that enlightened by
Him, we claim the power and recognize our
duty to choose the means best suited by the
circurhstances of time and place to seoure
the good of religion among the
people, whether in defending it where
it is oppressed or in making it
flourish where it is peaceably cultivated.
We are happy to note that the double duty
of love and obedience is fulfilled by many of
your countrymen in almost filial fashion,
hut, while with love we congratulate those
who by words and aots seoond with enthusiasm our exhortations, we cannot conceal
the pain we feel in noticing that too many
openly object to our counsels or pay no heed
to them. They imagine that they have the
proper filial piety for our person
when they shirk the necessary duty
of submission." The Pope proceeds to
show how desirable it is that divisions and
domestic quarrels should cease throughout France in the presence of anarchism.
He writes that his s*>ul is seized with horror
when he beholds the audacity of these lost
men, who, trampling under foot all sentiment for religion or humanity and respect
for law, do not shrink from crime' even
though it be assassination, in order to ruin
the foundation and majesty of public unity.
"Theae are reasons more pressing than
ever," he adds, "why our couutry should
heed our counsels and renounce party divisions in order to defend our supreme God."
Deputies Protest.
Rome, Jan. 12.���[Special.]���The deputies
of the extreme 1. ft.presented to-day to the
president of the Chamber a protest against
the arrest in Palermo of the Sooialist
deputy Giuseppe de Felice, at the same
time reserving the right to interpellate the
Government as to the rest upon the reopening of Parliament. Premier Crispi
consulted today with finance miniater Son-
nino concerning the expediency of affording
the Sicilian peasants ihe use of the uncultivated lands on the islands.

Tne Schooner Mary Brown.
The little schooner Mary Brown, as has
been stated often, left Sand Point, Alaska,
October 3, 1893. From that day to this not
a word concerning the vessel has been heard.
Whether the men who started with her are
at the bottom of tbe northern sea or are
awaiting tardy relief aB they battle with the
cold on some desolate island is a matter of
oonjeoture, says the Examiner. Friends
li/����; that the latter may be the true solu-
ton of their long absence.
Of the teu ��ho sailed iu tlio Mary Brown
only three are known here by name. One
i-Jaiuen L O'lii'ien, a in.iiij t o.* i.l* UieLvuue-
iiuugh (Juiuuiciuiai Company; a second is
Capt. Gaffney of Lake county; and the third
Capt. Brown, owner of the craft. That
they undertook the long voyage from Sand
Point to Victoria in this small vessel has excited some curiosity, and perhaps a little
adverse comment. The Czarina sailed from
Sand Point after the Mary Brown, and
weeks ago reached this port in safety. Mr.
Brown and his associates might have come
on the Czarina. That they did not constitutes an element in the story.
Mr. O'Brien had expected tbe Arago, but
plans were changed and it was determined
that his men should come down by the Czarina, Captain Schmeltz. When the Czarina
reached Sand Point Captain Schmeltz said
that he would not call in again, but after
making a tour of Ihe islands would start direct for San Franciauo. If O'Brien aud his
meu desired lo travel with him he said they
would have to get on board at once. This
would ine*n the loaa of several weeks' time,
during which the idle men would have to
be paid their salaries. O'Brien refuaed to
go with Schmeltz, saying, as he explained
in a letter to his sister, that he was coming
home somehow, and would "get there just
the same." He said that the Mary Brown
was 3C0 miles away and oould probably be
chartered to Victoria, which port he desired
to make.
So Captain Schmeltz put to sea. The
captain has an interest in tbe McCullom
Company at Pirate Cove, between whioh
and the Lynde-Hough company a rivalry
had existed. O'Brien's letter mentioned
this fact,hut did not specify its significance.
But the weather proved bad, and after being out ten days, Captain Schmeltz did return, anil, as O'Brien expressed it,in a more
reasonable frame of mind. He was willing
then to take O'Brien and his men, but as
arrangements had in the meantime been
made with the owner of the Mary Brown a
compiomise was agreed upon. The Czarina took the men, and O'Brien and Gaffney
elected to go by the Mary Brown. They,
however, sent letters by the Czarina and
Mr. O'Brien's belongings. Thete are now
at the family home of the O'Brien's.
For some reason little has been said about
the loss of the Mary Brown, and yet there
are many in this city anxious to know her
fate. The probability of organizing a relief
party and searching among the islands is
growing. The belief tbat the Lynde-Hough
Company will not permit the present mystery to continue is general, as O'Brien had
long been a trusted agent, and Jan. 27th
last became a member of .the firm. Captain
Gaffney was an old employee, though comparatively a young man, and was to have
succeeded O'Brien as manager at Sand
Point.
The theory that the Mary Brown was loaf
among the islands off Alaska is strengthened
by the fact that Captain Brown intended
visiting the islands on the way down, to engage sealers. The islands are numerous and
many of them large. If the vessel was
wrecked among them it is reasonable to
presume that at least a part of' those on
board reached land. And if they did, how
did they fare? The suspense is getting to
be more unbearable to their friends than a
realization of the most sombre truth.���
Times.
Sin Francisco, Jan. 12.���About two
weeks ago information was brought to Victoria that Jas. O'Brien and Captain Gaffney,
two passengers by the sealing schooner
Mary Brown, which is supposed to have
been wrecked on her way home from Sand
Point, Alaska, had been landed on an island
between Victoria, B.C., and Sand Point.
The owners of the Mary Brown immediately
communicated with the treasury agent asking for the use of a revenue cutter to rescue
the two men; nnd after waiting two weeksfor
areply yesterday wired Senator Perkins, what
action had been taken as to the proposed
rescue. He promptly replied that the
matter was in the hands of special agent
Stephens and Captain Healy of the cutter
Bear" und that he could not obtain further
information from the department. The
owners of the schooner say the information
received as to the landing of ihe two men is
authentic, and console- 'hat prompt action
should be taken by the government for
their relief,
quiet tip tbat there was likely to be
cons derable difficulty in effecting an
arrangement between the United States
and England thia year, and officially notified
him to keeji clear of the sea until May 1st.
If l*y that date no English orders have been
issued to the effect that the sea is closed
ground, Captain Strong could consider bim��
self at liberty to invade it and go hunting
in the hitherto proscribed limits. These instructions, Captain Strong says, have been
issued to all the British sealers clearing
from Victoria, and arrangements have been
made to receive news at Hakodate or Yokohama on the date specified. No such information has been confided to the American
sealers, who have no knowledge of a probable rupture of the agreement. Such local
owners as heard of Captain Strong's instructions were considerably excited, and a long
telegram has been framed asking for information from Washington."
Two Rogues Sentenced.
Berlin, Jan. 12.���[Special]���Harden and
Glover, the Americana who were arrested
last May for stealing a quantity of gold and
precious stones from jewelers in this city,
were tried to-d**y at the Berlin assizes. Both
were found guilty. Harden was sentenced
to imprisonment for two and one half years;
Glover to imprisonment for one year. Eaoh
heard his sentence with assumed indifference. Harden pleaded guilty. He said that
he had a good business in the United States,
but his partner absconded wiih a large
amount of the profits to Europe. He had
gone to London to search for the fugitive
and there had met Glover, who had suggested the plan of plundering the jewelers'
shops on the continent. Harden sat.I he
consented reluctantly to help execute the
plan. Glover deolared that Hardeu's testimony was a pure falsehood. The crown
proseoutor spoke of both as members of a
dangerous international gang of thieves.
Behring Soa May bo Open.
The following item appears in the San
Franoisoo Examiner of the 5th inst: "Hopes
of the sealers that there will be no embargo
on ihe Behring sea this season have been
raised by the report of Captain Abel Strong,
of the British schooner Arietas, which ar-
arrived here from Victoria yesterday to fit
out for the season's cruise. He oleared for
the Japan hunting grounds, but hag hopes
that May 1st will see the Behring spa open
and this hope he bases on the instructions
he received at the Victoria custom house
when he took out his papers. The charge
d'affaires  at that institution  gave  him  a|
British Columbia "Bad Man Country."
The Westminster Columbian, of Thursday evening, contains the following well-
timed expression of editorial opinion:
"It is, and has been from ihe early daya,
our excusable boast and pride in this Province that the criminal law has, with but
few exceptions, been firmly and effectively
administered, that life and property are
safe on this side of the forty-ninth parallel,
that the emblem of British authority which
waves over us is also a terror to evil doers,
of the overt and rampant sort at least.
There ia one portion of the Province, however���a difficult one, it must be admitted���
which is a standing blot on our escutcheon,
a weakness and a disgrace to the adminis-
tion of law and order in the country. This
is the coast portion. Here, among the archipelagoes of beautiful islands which adorn
and enrich our seaboard, a veritable carnival of whisky-smuggling, lawlessness, buccaneering and darker crimes holds almost
unbroken sway. No adequate efforts have
been made by the Provinoial authorities to
remedy this disgraceful and dangerous state
of things, which has reached the condition
graphically described in the following communication in the News-Advertiser, from G,
W. OeBeck, a gentleman whose experience
and observation in the district in question
will qualify him to speuk on the aubject:
'I notice in your issue of the 5th instant,
an item in which it ia suggested that a gunboat be sent into the northern coast waters
to ca'ch whisky traders and other desperadoes. There is no doubt but that a good
percentage of these gentry are renegades
from the Amerioan side, still I think Britiah
Columbia has furnished a fair share of these
toughs. However, that doesn't matter.
What I want to call attention to is, the
utter uselessness of sending a war-vessel to
hunt that kind of game. In the first place,
as we all know, the whole coast as far up as
one likes to go, is a perfect network of
channels and passages, running in every
direction, many of them being unsurveyed.
So numerous are they,that one might travel
half a life time among theae islands 'in a
small boat and never go twice over the
same stretch of water. The men engaged
in whisky trading are not tenderfeet, by
any means, some of them to my
knowledge having been in the business
for years, and know every cove, blind
channel and hiding place along the coast.
What show would a gunboat have to catch
one of those fellows among those islands!
One might as well set a bear trap to catch a
weasel. What is required for that busineas
is a good staunch, handy little steamer,
with accommodation for five or six men.
She should have good machinery, and be
able to carry coal to steam a thousand or
twelve hundred miles and run from eight to
ten knots per hour. She should have a
Maxim or other quick-firing gun on deck,
and every man, from the captain down,
should be a sworn police constable. The
captain should be well acquainted with the
northern waters. A craft of this
description, well manned, would make
short work of the whiskey trade
(which is tbe source of nearly all the
'rouble) and, instead of our northern
coast being a rendezvous for all the
murderers and cut-throats of every description from all parts of the Pacific coast, it
would, in a very short time be as safe to
travel through as any other portion of the
Dominion. It is far from beiug that at the
present time. This is really getting to be a
very serious matter. Every little while we
hear of some butchery taking place up there,
and there is no doubt that there are other
cases that we never hear of, especially
among the Indians, who are something like
Chinamen in th* respect that when anything of the kind occurs among themselves
it is generally hushed up. Something ought
to be done, and immediate'}*, if only to protect the Indians who (if such a t lung were
possible) are becoming more demoralized
every day,'
"The question of taking some steps for the
maintenance of law and order among the
fiords and islands of the provincial seaboard,
it will be remembered, was brought up in
the Legislature last session, and tbe
Government proposition to provide a
small naptha launch, at a cost of about
$2,000, for police duty in these waters, was
put through. The member for Westminster
pointed out at the time that such a craft
would be almost useless for the purpose,
that a considerably larger, a better equipped, and more seaworthy vessel was required for tbe service. The short experience
since has pretty well demonstrated the correctness of that view and the practical uselessness of the Government's toy launch,
aud Mr. OeBeck's specification of the
sort of craft required is a final and very
important piece of evideuce to the fact
that the steps so far takeu to provide
protection of life and property among the
islands, and to put down the wholesale and
illicit whiskey peddling���which is at the
bottom of a very large part of the disorder,
demoralizatwm and crime���are disgracefully
inadequate aud inefficient.
"In the interests of the ever 'increasing
white settlers on these islands of the gulf
and the moro northern coast, whose lives
aud property are constantly imperilled, and
not seldom sacrificed, as things are���in the
interest of the unfortunate natives, who are
being completely demoralized and turned
into demons of lawlessness and crime by the
illicit whiskey traffic oarried on, almost unchecked, by renegade whites and half-breeds
���for the good name and fame of the Province���it is to he earnestly hoped that the
Legislature may, at an early date, take up
this important matter, and take effective
action thereon." NANAIMO, B. C, SATURDAY, JANUARY 13, 1894.
THE HAWAIIAN TROUBLE.
Further Details More or Less Official.
H.M.S. Champion Preparing for Business.
New York, Jan. 9.���The World hasile
following    soecial    coiresuondence,     dated
Honolulu,  January   1,   via Victoria, B. C :
After the airival of the  Corwin had thrown
the p-ople into a nervous convulsion, everyone expecied momentaiilv   that  an attempt
would lie made to restore tlie queen by force
of arms.    It waa I hough'   bj   the   royaln-ls
and   provisional  government   people alike
tbat the revenue carter had Lr< ui*ht insi ructions from   Cievelai d to that   eH'e t.    Thnj
felt sure   that   the long   period  of  waiting
would no'V be broken by something decisive
But foi ti e ilaya Willis   made   no fign.    Il
was a fact i hat they were re uly ou the morn-
ing of tne 19 h to land.    All the officers had
been called ou   board   the **hips,   arms au*l
ammuni* ion were ready aud guns were I rained
on the palace.  Willis will s,.y nothing ah**u
this, but. lhe officera on b *uid   the Phlla el*
phia und Adams and the   Bii'ish   gunboat
Chauipion are the   World  oorresp'iudent's
authority for it.    Admiral Irwin  ��as asked
abnu*   this   subsequently.     "When  Cleveland's   sp cial    message  on   the   Hawaiian
question came," aaid he,"we had men ready,
not to attack  the  piovisional  government,
but to protect   citizens iu caae  if riotiug "
Captain Rooke, of the    hampion, is  aaid 11
have told some  ladies at a p.rty  the Dight
before that American, British audJapuu.se
marine   were to be landed the next day and
res ore the queen the same night.
The Herald correspondent met Hatch,
rice (jresidem of the||provisional government, in Emma Bquare, where a baud was
playing. Hatch said it was the understanding of himself and associates that marines
were to be landed in the morning, and i he
provisional government was ready. Bui
Willis evidently changed his mind. On the
moruing of the 29th he sent Consul Geneial
Mills to the palace and informed the government that he would like to call upon
them at that building with a communication
of importance. Dole and his cabinet said
they would be glad to receive Willis, aud
they set 1:30 o'clock in the afternoon.
Willis arrived at the appointed time, came
alone and was received with due gravity by
Mr. Dole. What transpired has already
been published.
Washington, Jan. 8.���The sub committee of the senate committee on foreign
affairs which is charged with the Hawaiian
investigation met this morning and proceeded promptly to business. Lieutenant
Lucien Voung was the priucipal witness
examined, and, like all others before him,
was pledged to secrecy. Lieutenant Moore,
executive officer and hydrographer of the
Boston, followed Lieutenant Young. Both
Heutenanls are understood to have sustained Captain Wiltse in all essential particulars concerning Hawaiian affairs in
which the Boston and its officers and men
took part. During the session of the com
mittee Blount sent iu his card and was
promptly admitted, but remained oniy a
short time. Mr. Blount said that Friday at
10 o'clock was set for him to appear.
The cabinet meeting today was longer
tban usual, and was undoubtedly largely
devoted to the Hawaiian question.
A surprise was furnished in the Hawaiian
matter by the action of the houBe committee on naval aflairs this morning, which
voted unanimously to favorably report the
Boutelle resolution to the house. This resolution is ironclad, calling upon the secretary
of the navy to inform the house by what authority instructions were issued placing the
naval forceB under the orders of Miuister
Blount, and furnish copieB of all orders or
suggestions issued by himBeH or any officer
of the navy since March 4, 1893, concerning the naval forces at the Hawaiian
islands. An amendment was made
changing the date to March 4, 1892,
so that the operations of the navy in
Hawaii under the Harrison administration
would be included. The secretary of the
navy is instructed to furnish information,
and is given no option to withhold documents
which he might consider secret or the publication of which at that time might be re
garded as contrary to public policy. Chairman Cummings, of the naval committee, will
report the Boutelle resolution to the house
immediately, but Bays it cannot be considered until the debate on the Wilson bUl
is finished.
The definite news from Hawaii by the
Warrimoo, published this morning, brought
a flood of inquiries to the state department.
JameB H. Blouut, ex-commissioner to
Hawaii, who called at the department, declined to discuss the news from Honolulu or
talk on the Hawaiian question at all. Later
Mr. Blount went to the house of representatives and mingled among his former associates before appearing before the senate committee of inquiry. He chatted on Hawai an
affairs with Representatives Waite, Tarsney
and others, but confined his viewB to an in-
terestingdescription of the featureBofhistrip
to Hawaii, and had nothing to say on the
merits of the case or the situation at the
present time. In response to a question
Mr. Blount told of his visits to the ex-
queen. The first visit lasted only five
minutes and the queen hid little to aay, apparently desiring him to do all the talking
and evidently not having a clear idea of the
situation of affairs at that time. Mr. Blount
aaid that among the people there was a
good opinion of the queen, and sensational
stories concerning her fouud little credence.
To one of the congressmen who asked Blount
if he attached much significance to the rumor
that Britiah forces had been landedat Honolulu for theostonBihle purpose of protecting British in teres ts.heaaid it. was probably for the sole
purpose of protection. Some members referred to Blount's report, whereupon its
author aaid he had been compelled to make
it muoh longer than he wished. There was
a very general desire among the people at
Honolulu to say something on the subject,
and they made constant applications to be
heard, bo that mnch care was necessary ',ia
avoiding prolix statements and cumulative
evidenoe. Mr. Blount was asked for a statement on the present situation. "I have
nothing to add to my report," said he, "and
in fact 1 have no information whatever on
the condition of affairs since I left the
islands and my report dosed."
Frank P. Hastings, Hawaiian ��� charge d'
affaires, also called at the state department
this morning, hut did not see the secretary.
The legation reoeived no word from the
Warrimoo this morning, but confidently expected a telegram. The relations between
the legation and the atate department remain undisturbed in any particular.
At the White House this morning there
was evidenoe of speoial activity in the rooms
of tho secretaries and clerks. It is expected
that another Bpecial message will go to con
ureas in a very short time.
Honolulu, Jan. 1���On the evening of
Deoember 16 Attorney General Smith
visited Minister Willia. During the interview Willie eaid:   "What I Are  you to re-
sisb the wb-h. s of the United States'..Either
nf these -Japanese or JJritish ships could
crush you If they assume a h' siile aiti-
Hide you would he compelled to apply for
our pi mention/' Smith iniimaei that hie
government could wait for a Republican administration to grant annexation. Willis
declared the Democratic party was assured
of twenty years of power, and that the will
oi Pie-Wen' Cleveland would prevail.
New York, Jan 9.��� The Press says the
key to the Hawaiian riddle comes in a
p ivate letter daied Hono ulu, Decembe*

Od'rwin, The letter is from Dr. M B.

time going through gun drill and taking
sigh's on all the provisional goverumem
buildings where troops were stationed, ..m-
munition sto ed aud public offices established. The Champion then Bt earned a little
further out and hud some shell practice,
returning to the harbor late in the day,
but not a man from either the Britiah
or Uniiid States ships was allowed to go on
���hore. The memorandum from on bo*rd the
Bii'ish gunboat which Dr. Grossman in
closes ia as follows: 'H. M S. Champion is
preparing io hoist the British em* gn over
Hawaii. Tuesday, December 7, when off
shore, Bhe had guu drill and sigh'ing on the
buildings where * he provisional government
troops are Btationed, on the ammunition
stores and police headquarters. It ia the
intention that as aoon as the queen is restored by the United Sates troopa and they
may retire, the qu* en is to appeal to the
British minister, Maj. Wodehouse, for protection. The English fltg is to be hoisted
and a protectorate declared over Hawaii.
Troops from the Champion will be landed
under protection of British guns.'"
tfrossman writes that such plans would
not be a surprise to anybody, because quite
in accord with all previous ideaB of British
seizure, and neither more nor leas than execution of ideas for many years oullivated by
British interests. It is well known . that
Theophilus H. Daviea haa been intriguing
for more than twelve months to attain Buch
a result, and it is evident that subsequent
to the queen's first recusal to Willis to submit to restoration of the throne unless sustained by force of American
arms, her British friends have
been advising her to accept Willis'
proposal and thus gain restoration by the
power of United Statea diplomacy and arms,
after which, the provisional government
being out, she could promptly apply io
Great Britain for support and turn the
islands and dependencies over to Great
Britain. This could not be regarded in the
light of an affront to the United States by
Great Britain, because President Cleveland
had for the United States withdrawn the
treaty and rejected all overtures for annexation. Grossman states that hia information
is derived direct from a British naval officer.

He Wont Do It Again.
Men who persist in smoking while in a
barber's chair may prrfit by the experience
of Henry Hallenstein, who was frightfully
burned ab-*ut the faoe, head and neck in
Alfred Otto's barber shop at 2 o'clock yesterday afternoon. He is now at his home,
454 West Congress s'reet, swathed in hand-
uges, and vows he will never again attempt
to light a cigar while a barber is putting
tonic on his hair. Fritz Hortz, the barber
who was catering to his customer's wants,
fared almost aB badly as Mr. Hallenstein.
His right hand was burned and one-half of
his long blonde mustache was singed in such
a manner that he was obliged to trim it
short.
After Mr. Hallenstein had been shaved
the barber said:
"What will you have on your hair!"
Mr. Hallenstien knew that Fritz wanted
him to use Mr. Otto's tonic and he consented. The barber had doused a considerable amount of this liquid on Mr. Hallen-
stetn's head when the latter decided he
wanted to smoke. He pulled out a cigar
and asked for a light. There were no
matches at hand so he took a piece of shaving paper, folded it up and lighted it from
the gas jet. As he brought the burning
paper close to his oigar the alcoholic fumes
from the tonic ignited. There waB a sudden flash of flame and Mr. Hallenstein,
screaming at the top of his voice, leaped
from the chair. Fritz grabbed a towel and
aa quickly as possible smothered the flames.
Mr. Hallenstein waB burned badly about
the face, ears and neck. T:.e akin all peeled
off. His eyebrows, mustache and hair were
badly singed. He was taken to Dr. Jewett's
office, where his wounds were dresaed. Fritz
himself had not escaped injuries, His right
hand was severely burned. One-half of hia
long mustache was burned away. When
one of his fellow barbers took a pair of
ahears and clipped the other side to make it
match Fritz almost cried with grief. During his excitement he threw away the bottle
containing the mysterious tonic. It struck
square on the back of Elsworth Hawley, the
barber who was cutting a man's hair in the
next chair. The man jumped up and ran
outside and did not return for half an hour.
There was a great deil of confusion in the
barber's shop, and during the afternoon
curious people peeped through the windows
tn see what was the matter.
Mr. Otto, the proprietor, was not in the
shop when the accident occurred. He is a
German. When he saw the barber's hand
in bandages he inquired what the trouble
was. When informed of what had happened he became excited and could say nothing.
He would not say of what the tonic waa
made, and ran out of his place over to the
doctor's office.
Later in the evening Mr. Hallenstein was
seen at his residence. He oould not speak,
as every movement of the mouth irritated
the burned flesh. His head and neok were
covered with bandagea. All that could be
seen were his eyes and lips.
"His face and even his lips are burned,"
Baid Mrs. Hallenstein. "He Buffers a great
deal now, but of oourse no one is to blame."

(Continued from paife s^ven.)
in unmoved majes'y at the '-astern end of
the basin, fr"*m thi* grand piazza in front of
the AdminiMia'inn building, between the
Agricultural building on one side and the
great Manufactures hall on the other, the
view out. over the blue waters of Lake
Michigan is unobstructed, and what was
yesterday a perfect architectural whole is
now an unsightly and sorrowful aggregation
of unbalanced architecture. Thus does one
little change mar the symmetiy of the
artistic whole, and thus is shown with what
inspired knowledge of artistic unity the
builder of the World's fair v, orktil. Tne
beauty of the grand court iB completely
taken away as an artistic whole, and the
plans for its preservation are put completely
to rout, unless it shall be determined to re
build the destroyed portion, a thiog not ut
all likely.
But the flames did not stop at tho peii-
���tyle, Music hall and Casino. They leaped
to the World's Fair giant, the great a died
hall of Manufactures and Liberal Arts, and
before the most strenuous efforts of the fire
department could check them in eating
away the lofty roof a vast hole was made
therein and firebrands from above falling
upon the boxed and crated goods below, together with the thousands of tons of water,
did a vast amount of damage. One of the
great arched girders, forming the largest
span of any building in the world, was un
buckled overhead by the lapping tongues of
flame and fell to the floor below, crushing
tbe beautiful French pavilion in which was
housed what remained of the valuable exhibit. The damage of the Manufacturers
building is mostly confined to the south half
of the roof and to the exhibits yet unre-
moved beneath that portion. Over a space
of 5(10 feet on the east side and 350 feet on
the west Bide the roof is entirely burned
away. Beneath this portion were the
Frenoh, Belgian and Russian exhibits and
they suffered most.
It is impossible as yet to estimate the loss
on exhibits, as tbey were all boxed and will
have to be unpacked before it can be known
what damage was done by water to textiles
and by breakage to ceramics and other
fragile exhibits in the work of hasty removal The heaviest loss, however, waa in
the French section, whose exhibits were
originally worth $1,500,000. Among the
losses io that section are the bronze- statue
of War, the Sevres china exhibits, the
Gobelin tapestry exhibit, the mosaic and
inlaid furniture exhibit, tbe Dure bronze
vase, the costume exhibit and the French
publishers' exhibit. The loss on the burned
buildings is total, as the insurance had expired, The Manufactures building cost
$1,700,000, Music hall $200,000, tht- Casino
$200,000, the peristyle $150,000. These
figures, however, cannot be taken in estimating the value of the destroyed buildings,
as they were practically worthless, the cost
of demolition and removing iu i lie cane of
a llexcept the Manufactures building being
equal to, if not greater, than the salable
value, and the value of the Manufactures
building being chiefly confined to the great
steel arches, which were ruined, with the
exception of the one mentioned aa still
intact.
It was about 3 o'olock this morning before
the fire was thoroughly under control, and
the firemen continued to do duty many
hours longer, turning atreama upon smoking
or glowing timbers here and there to guard
againBt tne possibility of a renewed outbreak.
The French commissioners and special
agenta appraiae the total loaa in tLei section
by last night's fire to be $40,000.
A despatch from London says: Th Daily
News, commenting on the fire at the ' 'urld's
Fair grounds, Chicago, aays, wiih re irence
to Higginbotham's remark that the f. e was
the cheapest way in which the Casini peristyle and Music hall could be got . il of:
"Fire was the oheapest way of removin * the
fair buildings; but this does not app.y to
the destruction of the Liberal Arts building,
iu which was stored a large portion of I he
foreign goods exhibited at the fair. Tue
loss of the gooda will cause serious uneasiness in many parts of the world, and is a
great misfortune for several reasons. The
chief duty of the monster exhibition is not
to get ita fair burned. It owes so much to
the generous sacrifice of those who contributed to it that it is under peculiar obligation to take care of their goods. They
spend money freely to bear the cost and
risks of transit, and they ought to be able
to feel that all uncertainties end there."

THE MUNICIPAL CONTESTS.
The municipal contests throughout the
Province are practically over, and in most
cases very great changes have been the result. In Nanaimo the complexion of the
new council does not differ materially from
that of the old The oity has been fortu
nate in securing the services of so many of
our best men on the council board for the
ensuing year. Although some of the newly
elected aldermen are comparative strangers
to municipal affairs, they are good business
men, and have been successfully conducting
their own affairs, which is a sufficient guar
antee of their ability to look after the interests of the city. We trust that as soon aB
the new aldermen are properly installed
they will take steps to have the in tin business streets of the city put in a proper state
of repair. Some system of permanent pavement should be adopted at once, otherwise,
if the matter is let run on from year to year,
it will eventually coit three timeB the
amount that would be required now for the
work. Thera are other important matters
which also require the attention of the
mayor and aldermen, but the question of
street improvement is of the first importance.
In most of the other municipalities of the
Province provincial politics were introduced
to a greater or lean extent, with the result
that the Oppositionists and so-called Independents have been completely snowed
under. Mr. Beaven, the late mayor of
Victoria, and leader of the Opposition in
the Legislature, was defeated in his old
stronghold by nearly 500 of a majority;
in Vancouver the candidate of the self-appointed leader of the so-called Independents
was also defeated, while in Chilliwack, the
nominee of the redoubtable Thos. Kitchen,
M.P.P., waa defeated by an overwhelming
majority. The late municipal contests may
therefore be taken as a fair index of public
feeling on provincial matters and a practical
endorsation of the present Provincial Government.
THE QUESTION OF MUTUAL DIS
ARMAMENT.
In the House of Commons on Thursday
Mr. Wm. Bvles, a Liberal, and doubtless a
Gladstonian, asked if the Government,
before it embarked upon costly naval expenditures, could see its way to communicate with the other European powers with
a view to establish a policy of mutual dis
armament. Mr. Gladstone in replying said
the question was one of great importance.
He did not Bay that the Government proposed to take action in the direction Mr.
Byles suggested. It is not Mr. Gladstone's
way to give a plain answer to a plain ques
tion if he can help it, as he generally can.
He usually takes refuge in a cloud of words,
of which he always has an unlimited supply
at hia command. And when the House has
listened to his words the members, as a rule
are as wise and no wiser than before he be
gan. It was so this time. Mr. Gladstone
referred to a proposal made by the Kirl of
Clarendon many years ago when he waB For
��ign Secretary, that there should be a general
disarmament by all the European powers.
The occurence took place so long ago that
Mr. Gladstone did not remember whether
the proposal was made in a strictly official
sense, but presumably it was not, for it had
not been made the subject of a document
communicating the fact to parliament. The
Earl of Clarendon, it appears, received an encouraging answer from one of the great powers, whioh of them Mr. Gladstone did not say,
but waB not able to carry the matter further.
Mr. Gladstone added that he was bound to
say that he was very doubtful whether the
present occasion waB one when such repre
sentation could be advantageously made.
So it appears that nothing is to be done,
and Mr. Byles.like many others before him
has failed to get anything but words out of
the old parlimentary hand. In these circumstances it is hard to see the great importance of Mr. Byles' question. It would
certainly be of very great importance if the
various European powers could be got to
consent to a simultaneous disarmament, and
to earry it out in good faith. Russia, Germany, Anstria, France, and Italy, are all
beinp crushed, and their inhabitants impoverished, under the excessive weight of
their armaments; and if Mr. Gladstone
conld do anything to induce these powers to
disarm even in part he would confer an almost priceless benefit on all Europe.   But
Mr. Gladstone does not intend even to make
the attempt, and the overgrown armiments
of all the powers go on increasing without
cessation or any apparent limit. England
too must undertake further vast expenditure for her navy. It is well that Mr. Gladstone did not give Mr. Byles a*y promise
that this would be deferred till an attempt
had been made to induce Russia,
France, Germany, and the other
powers to disarm. If England
waited in the hope that they would consent
to do so, her navy would not be streng h-
ened at all, and in a short time she wou'd
be at the mercy of her enemies. Russia and
France are constantly pushing on the construction of new battle ships, cruiBers, gun
boats, torpedo boats, etc, with almost
feverish eneigy; and while they continue lo
do so Great Britnin must not neglect her
navy, upon the strength and efficiency of
which her very life depends. It is all very
for Mr. Byles and men like him to talk of
disarmament by the great powers; but it
would be utter madneBS of a British Government to neglect to strengthen lhe navy while
it eugaged in further and perhaps protracted
negotiations for such a purpose. Mr. Gladstone deserves credit for practically refusing
to promise that he will do so. It must be
admitted that Mr. Gladstone is not quite so
foolish as some of his followers seem to be.
He knows what can be done, with Borne degree of safety, and what cannot. Even
Home Rule would not be aa dangerous aB to
neglect the navy in the present
position of affairs in Europe, and it
muat be admitted that Mr. Gladstone
did not take up Home Rule till he had despaired of holding power unlesB by the help
of the Home Rule party. If the British
people had answered his appeal in the general election before the firBt Home Rule bill
was introduced, to give the Liberal party a
majority that would make them independent of the Tories and Home Rulers combined,
then it iB morally certain Mr. Gladstone
would never have taken up Home Rule. It
is much to be regretted that he had not firm-
nesB of mind enough not to do so in any
case, but if not possesaed of the highest degree of political virtue Mr. Gladstone has
not yet abandoned, like Mr. Labouchere,
and perhaps Mr. Byles also, every principle
that ought to guide a British statesman.
This may by some be considered cold praise
of Mr. Gladstone, hut we think it quite as
much as he has of late years merited.

THE WILSON TARIFF.
The Republican press ot the United States
is opposing the Wilson tariff bill furiously.
If it becomes law it will, according to the
Republican papers, ruin every industry that
could be mentioned in the United States.
The farmers were the class that suffered
most under the McKinley tariff. It raised
the price of everything they oonsumed fiom
about fifty to seventy-five percent., in some
cases more, while the protection it pretended to afford them was in most cases illusiue.
It helped to keep Canadian farm produce
out of the American markets, but that was
about all it did for the American farmers,
while taxing them beyond endurance. This
was the real secret of the revolt of the
farmers from the Republicans at the last
presidential election. Now some of them,
owing to the hard times prevaling
everywhere in the United States, which the
Republican press does not fail to saddle on the
tariff policy of the Democrats, repent them
that they deserted, "the grand old party of
great moral ideas" and voted the Democratic ticket. If they had to do it over again
just at present, many of them would vote
for Benjamin Harrison and protection, not
for Grover Cleveland and free tr de. What
they will do next presidential election, after
the tariff has been remodelled, and the new
policy has had a trial, it is impossible at
present to say. It will depend very much
on how the revised tariff affects the farmers'
interests. That is still to be seen. In the
meantime the Republican papers all over
the union are doing their best to persuade
them that the Wilson tariff, if it is passed
by Congress, will literally ruin the farmers
by exposing them to Canadian competition.
The Post-Intelligencer of Seattle is a good
example of Republican prints in the course
it is pursuing with regard to the Wilson
tariff. We quote as follows from an editorial in ita issue of Thursday last:
"Mr. Wilson boasted in his speech on
Tuesday that his new tariff bill will emancipate the farmer. On the contrary, it
bears heavily ou the farmer. In our northern frontier states it gives Canada the best
of us in our home market for competitive
faun products and farm animals. The market for barley, oals, butter, eggs, hay, hops
and potatoes will in the frontier states lie
commanded by Canada; so will the lumber
and coal market, and the farmer will be the
first to feel the effect of a cut in the wages
of the logger and miner, for with the extinction of industries, a cut in wages or a re-
duct ion in employees the consumption of farm
products will be less. Men out of work or
working for low wages will not only buy
less of i he farmer and manufacturer, but
will be sure to invade the ranks of agricul-
culture, increasing its produotion and reducing its profits. The wool growing farmer
will suffer, of course, for free wool will de
stroy the sheep raising industry."
��#*#''.#���<
"Mr. Wilson is wrong eternally wrong;
the farmer and the manufacturer have both
flourished under fair protection to both producer and manufacturer, and you oannot today take away protection from competitive
industries, whether raw material or finished
goods, without hurting the farmer, for you
obliterate his home market when you cut
the wages or destroy the industries of miners,
loggers or manufacturing operatives who
consume the farmer's product.
These are the first and concluding paragraphs of the Post-Intelligencer's article on
the subject, one example out of many. Our
Seattle contemporary goes into hysterics
over the terrible things that will happen to
American lumbermen, farmers, miners, and
we know not whom besides, if the Wilson
tariff becomes law, and American working-
men are exposed  to  ruinous  competition
from Canada. What terrible fellows these
Canadians must surely be, when the mere
idea that they will be allowed to compete
on free terms with lhe Americans in their
own markets creates suoh -larm! The
Post-Inlelligetictr ought to be ashamed of
itself to keep ou bowling as it does for fear
of Canadian competition.
Wilson's claim that his tariff, if pasBed,
" will emancipiie the farmer " is not the
empty boast that tlie Post-1 tttelligencer represents it to be. It will relieve him from
at least half the heavy imports that lie had
to pay under McKinley's precious tariff for
everything he had to buy, from a hoe to a
self-binder, and every article of clothing for
himself and his family. The Post Intelligencer is not ashamed to say that "the farmer flourished under protection"���meaning,
of course, protection of the McKinley stamp.
Moderate protection is one thing, extreme
high protection such as the McKinley tariff
established is quite another. Manufacturers
in the States already had high protection,
but it was not, high enough. They got the
Republicans to pass the McKinley tariff and
the farmers, and many workingmen who
found that it did not raise their wages in
the same proportion as it raised their expenses, revolted against it and voted the
Democratic ticket. Now the manufacturers
are likely to be treated to a much lower
tariff than that in force before McKinley
arose to fame, and they and their backers
of the Republican press are furious. If the
farmers of the United States were prosperous under the McKinley system of high
protection, as the Post-Intelligencer
alleges, how comes it that hundreds
of farms were literally abandoned
all over the New England States in the east,
and how was it that in all the western
states mortgages were increasing, and the
farming population bitterly discontented?
All this is notorious and cannot be denied.
The fact iB that the Republican leaders had
accepted the money of the manufacturers
for campaign purposes. The latter with
blind greed called for more protection, and
the Republicans had to yield to the demand.
But the people could not bear the high
duties which they, had to pay on every class
of goods, some of which went into the treasury, but the greater part into the pockets
of the manufacturers. They arose and
turned out the Republicans, and now the
Wilson tariff is the reply made by the
Democrats to the demand for tariff reform.
It will be in vain for the Republicans and
their organs to oppose it. The people have
demanded reform of the tariff, and will
have it.

ALBERNI   NEWS.
On the first appearanoe of snow in Alberni
great exertions were made by some of the
residents to get their sleighs in readiness,
Mr. Armstrong having four men employed
on his sle*gb whilst Mr. Saureautt, of the
Alberni Hotel, was in such haste that he
had nine men working on his double-seated
cutter getting it ready for use.
Matthew Ward, a rancher from Sproat
Lake, is having a new hotel built in Alberni
opposite to Saunders' stables. The hotel
will be a frame building 72 by 40 feet, three
storeys high, and capable of accommodating
30 or more guests. The foundations
now being laid and George Forest has charge
of the building.
Mr. Armstrong, of the Alberni stage had
a most uncomfortable trip from Alberni on
Thursday. There being fifteen inches of
snow and expecting snow for the whole
trip, he started in a sleigh, which after the
first eighteen miles histeam had to haul on the
muddy roads, as the snow had disappeared
from this end of Cameron Lake on. He
eventually reached McCarter's at 9 o'clock
on Thursday evening, in a pouring rain, and
came on here in a borrowed rig yesterday.

THE WORLD'S FAIR BLAZE.
All Awful Sight-Heroism of Firemen���
Loss of Exhibits Comparatively Small.
The fire in the World's Fair buildings,
Chicago, on Monday uight, started in the
Casino, j ibt east of the Agricultural building
and south of the peristyle. The Casino waa
quickly devoured, aifl the flames surged
north on the top ui -h- peristyle and, dropping, made a secinti lire of fire along the
base of the columns. The flames then
���prang througn the Music hail, which corresponds to the north eud of tne peristyle to
the Casino at the souih While the lire was
burning there oue of lhe most singular aud
fascinating sights of tlie uight was witnessed. Aloug the top of the peiisiyle were
scores of heroic statues Tue spectacle tor
those people on the moving sidewttlk east of
the pens*yle was that of a succession of
gigantic human beings plunging oue after
Another headlong into the woteis of the lake
below. The origin of the fi* e is s.ml lo have
been in revenge on the part of a duple of
tramps. L'he solitary guard iu th- Mus c hall
said that jusi before ihe flames liroke out he
kicked two vagabonds out of the building.
They left in the direotion of the Casino, aud
soon after that the fire broke out aid terror
and contusion ensued. Fears of looting
added to the honor of lhe scene.
At 10 o'clock, with a po.-silile loss of
about $10,000,000 by fire in the Manufactures building alone, the authorities began
to lealize that a large element in the crowd
was composed of idlers, who once started in
lawlessness, would be difficult to control.
Such prepurttlious us could be were hurriedly
made to remove goods and guard other
buildings, but all such efforts were the
mei' st cmld's pay. L'he utter hopelessness
of such attempts on such short notice wus
made apparent at once.    The few officers on
guard could do no more thau hope that the
aines would be speedily stayed, i he spectators at this lime, partly for safety and to
prevent wholesale robbery of exhibits, were
driven back by the police and lined up
against the Elcctriciy building. Here they
could see gr>*a - blazing fragments dropping
upou the exhibits below, crushing and burn
ing the exquisite French section, and threat
ening to destroy the Ru����i��u and British
aectiuns. By this time the fireboats aud
engines had succeeded in subduiug the
flames in the ashes of the peristyle and on
the lower southeast side of the Liberal At Is
building, and hopes were entertaiued that
the tire would be subdued, but shortly after
11 the flames got beyond control upon the
top of the promenade of tbe Liberal Arts
building and the main aisle of the building
became a mass of flame*).
Remorselessly the fire hurled itself
through the interstices of the big iron arches
of the dizzy heights above. The flames
wound like boa oonstriotors in and around
the mamnio t h electric wirea, and salvage forces
with heavily loaded trucks were plunging
through the aisles not loaded with wreckage
or drenched with falling cataracts of water,
most of which fell short of the flames. Tbe
clouds of smoke and vapor that every
moment or so shut out the view of the fire
were colored in the most fantastic fishiun.
The opinion seemed general that the loss by
water was even greater than by fire. About
10:45 a great iron arch gave way directly
above the French section, and falling heavily, buried the French wares beneath the
burning pile. Around the Japanese exhibit
adjoiuing . clustered a crowd of scared and
frantic Japanese. This, like many exhibits,
had not been released from   bond, and   the
foods could not be taken from the building,
ut were carted to the doora and there
guarded by the natives. All the American
exhibits were long ago removed, but the
custom house detained the goods of foreigners
Superintendent Graham, of the Manufactures building, said the loss could hardly be
over estimated. "I have feared thit ever
since tbe fair closed," said be, "and now it
has come worse than I ever dreamed." All
through the great structure fi antic exhibitors rushed, seeking to save their goods. The
fire department fought with energy and skill,
but the conditions were against them. A
fierce wind came over the lake, flinging fiery
embers everywhere, fanning them into life
every moment. The huge billows of flames,
which were manfully com batted by the men
on the roof, rolled northward. The firemen
were handicapped by lack of water. A
heroic effort was made to get streams to tbe
top of the giant structure, but the water
supply was fearfully inadequate. Fiuding
it impossible to reach the roof, the chief ordered the engines into the building. With
clanging gongs and clatter of hoofs steamer
After steamer rattled through the smoke,
down the firelit aisles uutil the centre of the
building was reached. There the last struggle of the firemen was taken up. Streams
of water were hurled upward, but with
little effect. From above the fiery hail ol
embers poured down upon the firemen, And
the heaps of blazing merchandise grew more
numerous, and foot by foot the engines were
forced back to either end of the building.
At midnight Piesident Higginbotham
telegraphed the general manager of the
Associated Press saying he had been iu the
burning building over two hours, and that
the roof had fallen, but fortunately few exhibits were in range ol the embers. "I
should say," said he, "that the loss by
water would be much greater than by lire.
The total loss to the exhibits will not exceed $100,000 Of course tliu loss is serious
enough, but the fire is now fairly under control and there is no more to fear. All told,
the contents of the Liberal Arts building
did not exceed in value $1,000,000. As to
the casino, peristyle aud music hali, the.o ia
no loss. iU should not regr.il their burning as it is the cheapest way to remove
them." Three days ago the number of puck-
ages awaiting shipment was; Manufacturers' building, 11,97*1; Midway Plaismoe,
1,300; Fine Arts, 780; Woman's, 919; Horticulture, 1,00; Transportation, 600; Mining, 1,50; Electricity, 1,657; Agriculture,
1,800; and 1,686 scattered in other buildings; total, 23,654. Less than 14,000 packages had been shipped away prior to December 20. The climax of interest was re tched
shortly after midnight wheu a company of
50 men could be seen edging their way
along the roof of the Manufacturers' building. A cry of horror went up as a large
section of the roof almost under the feet of
the firemen gave way and fell with a crash.
The. firemen did not waver, and by 1 o'clock
it looked as if their heroism wouid not be in
vain.
On Tuesday morning, the scene at the
eastern end of the Court of Honpr of the
World's Fair this morning was one of utter
desolation and destruction, where at sunset
last night gleamed the white columns of the
peristyle, flanked by Music hall and the
Casino, and capped and ornamented by the
imposing quadriga over the central arch and
rows of figures along ita cornice. The peristyle is no more, and Music hall and the
Casino are heaps of ashes. Save for the
great golden statue of the renublic. standing

What is the cause of all this noise and bustle around our Bargain Counter ? We ha e had, and other people have
had Bargain CouDters before, but i ot on the same scale. What constitutes a Successful Bargain Counter, anyhow?
Just simply this���make every article on it so Low in Price that it will cause an exc amation of Wonder and Surprise in
every instance where the price is given.   J t is no trouble then to make sales.
See the Costumes we are selling at Half Price. 1 here's not an objectionable one among them. We have already
sold eight or ten and expect to clear every one of them out this month.
We believe in keeping our stock clear, eo as to be ab e every Season, as it comes round, to give our customers nice
clean goods in all the latest novelties the market produces To be able to do this we have, of course, to slaughter some
stuff at Ridiculous Prices.
We almost forgot to mention that we intend clearing out our balance of Ladies' and Children's Waterproofs, at
prices that are certain to sell them.   The "Bretagne" Lacing Gloves take the lead.

mostly farmers, are having a hard lime of it
now. A gentleman iu town who recently
heard from there states that some of the
fumiliea can hardly get enough to eat una a
good many live ou only two meals a day
though they are all looking forward to good
times in the spriug.
At about I o'clock Thursday morning,
owing to two of the bars ou the commutator
of the dynamo supplying the electric light,
incandescent circuit having raised, the machine was shut down for a short time, shrouding Btoresand otlicea,notably The Tei.ei;ham
establishment, iu gloom, causing some hindrance to the work of the stall, who were at
the time busy preparing the morning paper.
