Report to Gresham. An Honest Unbiassed Document���Minister Steven's

Office as U. S. Minister. Tricks of the

Private Character Vindicated.
Washington, D. U., Nov. 20. ���Seoretary
Gresham today made public all the correspondence between the Secretary of State
and James H. Blount, Commissioner and
later Minister of Hawaiian Islands. Mr.
Great-am, in giving this voluminous printed
matter to the press, explained that it in-
eluded everything connected with Mr.
Blount's mission to Hawaii, with the exception of statistical tables relating to the
islands. The matter consists of three parti,
the first beginning with a copy of the instructions giveu to Mr. B ouut on March
11th, 1893, prior 10 his departure from
Washington for Honolulu; ttie last part
ending with a brief letter under the date of
July 31, 1893, in whioh he takes his conge
as follows: -The condition of all parties in
the ialauds ia one of quiescence. The
aotion of thu United States is awaited by all
aa agmatler of necessity. This condition it
can be assuisd, will remain until the proposition to annex is accepted or rejected.
In the latter contingency no sudiion movement is likely to oecur. Ths present Government can only rest on the use of military
force as it is possessed of must of the arms
in the islands with a small white population
to drsw from to strengthen it. Ultimately
it will fall without fail.   It
May Preserve Its Existence for a Year
Or two, but not longer." Then ho adds that
he haa done his duty as well as he could,
"considering that he was surrounded by
persons interested in misleading," and that
his private affairs necessitated his return
home. Secretary Gresham's letter of instructions to Mr. Blount, dated March 11th,
defines clearly how far in the opinion of th*
President the use of armed force is permis-
sable by the United Si ate* to pull down or
set up governments. Mr. Greaham says:
"In the judgment of the President your au-
thoiity, as well as that of the commander of
the naval forces in Hawaiian waters shall be
and is limited to the ills of physical force to
such measures as are necessary to proteot
the persons and property of our citizens,
and while abstaining from any manner of interference with the government of the islands, you should indicate your willingness
to intervene with your friendly offices in the
interest of peuceable settlement of the
troubles within the limit of sound discretion
Should it be necessary to land an armed
force upon Hawaiian territory on an occa
sion of popular disturbance, when the local
authorities may be unable to give adequate
protection to the life and property of citizens of the United Statea, the nssent of suob
authority should first he obtained, if it can
be done without injustice to the interests
involved. Your power in this regard
should not, however, be claimed to the exclusion of similar measures by the representatives of other powers for the lives and property of their citizens or their subjects residing in the islands. While
The United States Claim No Bight to
Interfere
in the politic or domestic affairs or in the
internaal conflicts of the Hawaiian Islands
otherwise than herein stated, or for the purpose of maintaining any treaty or other
rights which they possess, this Government
will adhere to its consistent and established
policy in relation to them and it will not
acquiesce in domestic interference by other
powers."
In a letter dated April 6th, Mr. Blount,
announces his arrival at Honolulu and tells
of his refusal, against the strong urging
Mr. Stevens, to accept a house and the use
of servant-*, carriages, horses, etc., furnished
hy the Provisional Government, paying
"whatever I wanted forit. from nothing up "
He also notes the refusal of tenders from the
ex-Queen and others. Appended to a letter
of April 8th, iu which Mr Blount deploreB
the perverted influence of Minister Stevens
and Consul General Severance, to which he
ascribes the existence of the Provisional
Government, is a stenographic report of au
Interview Between Mr. Blouut and Admiral Skerrett.
In whieh the following occurred:
Admirrl Skerrett���I called at ths Navy
Department on the 30th December to ask
Mr. Traoey if he had any fiual instructions
for me, as I was going to liars th* next day
for San Francieoo to ��>auiu* oammand of the
Paoific squadron. He replied:���"Commodore, I have no instructions to give you.
You will go there and perform your duty, as
I know you will, and all will be satisfactory." I remarked:���"Mr. Traoey, I want
to ask you about these Hawaiian affairs.
When I was out there two years ago, I had
frequent conversations with the then United
Stales Miniater, Mr. 1'ierce, on the subject
of the islands. I was told then that the
United States Government did not wish to
annex the islands of Hawaii." He replied:���
"Commodore, the wishes of tbe Government have changed. They will be very glad
to annex Hawaii." And said as a matter of
course none but the ordinary legal means
can be used to persuade these people to
come into the United Stales.
On April 21st, Mr. Blount says he was
called on by Claus Sprockets. "But," said
Mr. Blount, "how much or how little Mr.
Spreokela   knows   about this  matter I am

ia generally regarded
here as being a plausible, unscrupulous person," and suggests that if the administration
should receive any proposition frrm Mr.
Neumann in couneotion with contraots between the Queen and Provisional Government, in the matter of her abdication, it
would be fur better to decline to entertain
anything. Mr. Blount says he called on
th* Ex Queen and informed her that no
person was suthorized by President Cleve
land nor himself to place the Government of
the United States in the attitude of desiring
any adjustment between herself and the
Provisional Government, and the Queen replied that she did not intend to enter into
any negotiations until the Washington
Government had taken sctson on Mr.
Blout's report.
On May 4th., Mr. Blount wrote "At thia
time the indications are unmistakable that
a large majority of the people of the islands
are utterly opposed to annexation. I do
not look for any change from thia situation."
In the third jjpart of tbe correspondence
is printed a statement of Mr. Volney, V,
Ashford, dated March 8th, 1893. In it he
says he has put in writing certain inform
ation iu regard to Hawaiian affairs, at Mr
Blount's request. This statement to th*
Queen as reigning sovereign who had at
least twios striven to supplant her brother
even at the expense, if necessary, of
Walking Over His Strangled Corpse
to the throne: "A woman notoriously
loaded with the grossest social vices such as
had contributed so largely to the late King's
downfall in 1887, but still strongly upheld
by th* majority of the native people who
believed her professions and promises to
restore them to an equal franohise." In
another part of his communication, Mr.
Ashford says: "Wilson's pull on the Qm-o
consisted in the fao that for many years he
has been her favorite paramour (she has
several). The Queen had a private gateway
cut through the palace wall immediately
contiguous to her apartments in the bungalo
that he might alone enter by a near and
more convenient way. The pair openly
lived together in the Queen's cottage at
Waikiki, a suburb of Honolulu, during and
auooeeding the sandbag episode at the
palace, just preceding the descent upon tbe
league. This place was formerly an assignation house, built by the Queen, and openly
used fin* -that purpose, under the personal
charge of her buain^ss manager, formerly
her native coachmau. All these and many
other equally soandalous acts are matters of
publio notoriety at the capital and have been
aired snd commented upon by the native
press of Honolulu, but the English press
were either gagged by the palace party or
kept silent to avoid the effects of the scandal
abroad."   These statements
Against  the  Deposed   Queen   are  Discredited
by Mr. Blount. Mr. Blount's conclusion of
the facts are embodied in hia report to Secretary Gresham dated July 17th. It is a very
long document, tilling thitty-seven large
priuted pages, and indicates very clearly
that he understood that he was tu confine
himself to a plain statement of fuels for no-
where does he make the slightest suggestions, or recommendation lefusing all proffers of hoapiialily. On his arrival on the
islands, he says, he took up his quarters at
the Hawaii tn hot :1, where he passed several
days in calls and soon beoame aware that all
minds were quietly and anxiously looking to
the action of the United States Government.
The troops of the Boston performed military
duty for the Provisional Government, with
the American flag floating over the Government building, and, says the Minister, within it, the Provisional Government eonduoted
its business under an American protectorate
according to the avowed purpose of the
American Minister during tho negotiations
with the United Statea for annexation."
This brings the story down to the
incident of hauling down the American flag
which created such a stir and which Mr.
Blount describes as follows: "My instructions directed me lo make inquiries which
In the Intorest of Candor and Truth
Could uot be done when the minds of thou.
Bauds of Hawaiian citizeua were full of uncertainty as to what the presence of the
American troops, the American flag and the
American protectorate implied. It seemed
neoessary that all thesa influences must be
withdrawn before these inquiries could be
prosecuted in a manner befii ting the dignity
and power of the United Stat -.��. Inspired
with such feelings and confident no disorder
would ensue, I direoted the remo al of the
United States flag from the Government
building and the return of the Americeu
troops to their vessels. This was accomplished without auy demonstration of joy or
grief on the part of the populace. Tbe afternoon before, in an interview with President
Dole, in response to my inquiry, be said
that the Provisional Government was now
able to preserve order, although it could not
hare done so for several weeks after the
proclamation establishing it."
A Japanese incident which is both new
and interesting, is then related. Mr. Blouut
says:���"On the evening of the day when
the flag was hauled down th* American
minister called with Mr. Walter G. Smith,
who said he desired lo make an important
communication to me and whom he knew to
be very intelligent and reliable. Thereupon
Mr. Smith, with intense gravity, informed
be that he knew beyond doubt that it had
b**n arranged between the Queen and the
Japanese Commission that It the American
flag and the troops were removed, the
troops from the Japanese man-of-war Na-
niwa

Mr. Smith was the editor of the Hawaiian
Star established by the annexation club for
ths purpose of advocating annexation.    The
ordered away,
Continuing his narrative
Mr. Blount says, the Provisional Government beinij left to its own preservation, the
people freed from any fear of offering to
converse with him so far as his action could
accomplish it, and peace prevailing, the way
was deafen1 for his investigation.    He tells
The Story of the Revolution
In this manner. "On Saturday evening,
the 14th of January, a large body of men,
Germans, natives and Americans, t->ok upon
themselves the task of dethroning the
Queen and proclaiming a new Government,
with a view to annexing the islands to the
United States. The momentous question
with them was how to devise some plan to
have the United States troops landed.
Mr. Thurston who appears to have been
the leading spirit on Sunday sought two
members of the Queen's Cabinet and urged
them to head a movement against the Queen
and to ask Minister Stevens to land the
troops, assuring them that in euch an event
Mr. Stevens would do so. Failing to enlist
any of the Queen's Cabinet in the canse, it
was necessary to devise some other mode to
accomplish this purpose a committee of
safety consisting of thirteen members had
been formed from this little body of men
assembled in W. 0. Smith's office. A deputation of these informing Mr. Steven's of
their plans arranged with him to land the
troops if they would ask it, "for the purpose
of protecting life and property." It was
further agreed between him and them that
in the event of their occupying the Government building.
And Proclaiming a New Gov -
he would recognize it. The two immug
members of the committee, Messrs. Thurston and Smith, growing uneasy as to the
safely of their persons, want to him to
know if he would protect them in the event
of their arrest by the authorities, to which
he gave hia assent. Mr. Blount comments
upon the failure of the revolutionists to inform the mass meeting on the 16th of their
purpose, which he attributes to fear of the
Queen. H�� quote* the application of Jan.
Kith to Minister Stevens for protection,
and says: - "The response to that oall
does not appear in th* files and tha
records of the American Legation,
and I think, therefore, oeunot speak
for itself. The request of the committee of
safely was, however, consented to and the
troops were landed. A meeting of the committee held that night at the house of
Henry Watterhouse, next door to Miniater
Steven's house, determined on the dethronement of the Queen and selected officers. At
this* meeting ii waa assented to by all that
Mr. Stevens had agreed with the committee
of safety that in the event it occupied the
government building and proclaimed a provieional government he would reoogniza it as
a de facto government.
A Great surprise burst upon the town.
when the troops lauded Jan. Kith. Stevens
informed Parker and Watterhouae that in
the event of the Queen's forces assailing the
insurrectionary forces he would intervene.
Mr. Blount says that on their way to the government building to proclaim the provisional
government the mob separated for fear of
observation and arrest. There was no sign
of an insurrectionary on soldier the street.
The committee of safety sout to tho government buildings, a Mr. S. Wilcox to see
who was there and on being informed that
there were DO government forceson the ground
proceeded in the manner I have related and
read theproclama'ion. Jus< beforeconcluding
the reading of this instrument a troop of
fifteen volunteers appeared. Within half
hour afterwards some thirty or forty more
made their appearauoe. The report
d��i .ils the circumstances attending the
abdication of the Queen and states that she
yielded because it v. as pressed upon her by
the ministers and other persons that it was
useless to contest with the United States,
that she could file her protest and be entitled to a hearing in Washington. Says
Mr. Blount, "all this was accomplished
without the firing of a gun, without a demand for surrender on t he part of the in
aurrectiouary foroes, until they had b'en
converted into a dej'ae/o Government by the
recognition of the American miniater with
American troops, then ready to interfere in
the event of an attack."
Attempt to Blow up Nelson's Monument.
Montrkai., Nov. 20.���Three young men,
Honor* Mercier, a son of ex-premier Mercier and Alfred Loland and Paul Demaut-
igny, students, were arrested this morning
charged with a conspiracy to blow up the
Nelson monument ou Jacques Cartier
Square. It leaked out recently that a plot
had been arranged to destroy tbe monument
and the polioe receiving notification, captured the three at an early hour this morning on Jacques Cartier Square. A large
pieoe of dynamite was found in the young,
men's possession. Tbey were liberated on
bail and will have an examination to-morrow. For some time past a portion of the
French press has been advocating the removal of the statue from the French to the
English part of the city. Some of the
papers referred to Lord Nelson in anything
but complimentary terms.

Resigned Because of the Landing of
American Troops.
New Yobk., Nov. 20.��� The Herald's
Washington correspondent telegraphs as
follows: Commissioner Blount's report on
the Hawaiian question will Bhow that
Minister Stevens landed the troops from
the Boston long before there was any valid
excuse for their presence on Hawaiian soil;
that he declined to remove them when requested to do so by the government, who
informed him that the authorities
were willing and fully able to preserve
order and protect American interests; that these troops were stationed
across the street from the government buildings in which Minister Stevens knew the
revolutianists were about to read their proclamation and that the revolutionist committee relied upon the American troops to
protect them in this act of rebellion; that
Minister Stevens recognized the Provisional
Government had obtained possession of the
departments and military power at Honolulu, and that the military power was
surrendered, as the Queen surrendered,
only through awe of the superior power
of the Uuited States. Many depositions
by a number of well known gentlemen in
Honolulu were taken before Commissioner
Blount, indicating that Queen Liluiokalaui
surrendered her throne and her ministers
resigned because of the landing of the
American troops at Honolulu. In the disposition of Mr. S. A. Damon, president of
Advisory Council of Provisional Govern*
ment, he was asked if the Queen was advised by her ministers to surrender because the sympathy of the
United States was with the revolutionists. I know that it was the Queen's
idea that Stevens was in sympathy with
this movement. The Queen was reluctant
to sign the abdication, but did so on the
ground that it would all come up for review
at Washington. I told her so myself It
was the beat terms of settlement we could
get. I took it to President Dole and he received and endorsed it.
"Was any message sent to the Queen
after that or anything rejecting the proposition tor a settlement of the dispute at
Washington?"
"No.*7
"The surrender was then made on that
proposition?"
"Yes. Then the Queen sent down word
to the station house that they should surrender. That wound up the whole affair.
We took possession. It was not delivered
up after this conference."
Scores One for the Ladles.
Now York, Nov. 20.���The Independent
has the following special cable: Constantinople.���Judge^Terrell, the United States
Miuiater, has just gained a notable diplomatic victory. For several years the number of female physicians in Turkey has been
increasing, notwithstanding the fact
that the Turkish law refused to
recognize them as legitimate practitioners. Foremost among them have
been the American missionaries who have
repeatedly won the highest praise for their
self denying work. They have, however,
been greatly hampered by the faot that they
could not secure regular Turkish diplomas,
and the various foreign embassies have been
very earnest in their efforts to gain for them
official recognition. Hitherto they have
failed entirely, but at last Turkish conservatism has yielded, and to the American embassy belongs the honors of securing what neither Russian, Frenoh,
British nor German ambassadors could gain.
THE   FINANCIAL  WORLD.
Nkw York, Nov. 20���The week opened
with a quiet oondition of affairs at the stock
exchange by the bond department. It can be
said that the great plethora of funds is leading to a re-awakening of the interest on the
part of financial institutions and individual
capitalists, who are dissatisfied with the
small returns afforded by the loan market.
Not only are the leading issues dealt in at
the stock exchange improving in
price, but bonds whioh are dealt
in outside of the exchange proper
are also in better request. The fact
that private bankers are bringing out new
loans attest the better tone for investments.
The dealings in stocks, however, are confined almost entirely to the professionals.
The rally which set in after the publication
of the bank returns on Saturday, made further progress this morning and was assisted
by moderate purchases for London
account. The "bulls" made efforts to
force a covering movement and were
partially successful; they advanced
J to 1J per cent., General Electric, sugar,
the Grangers, Atchison, Lackawanna, I), k
H. and Western Union leading. Subsequently distillers broke suddenly from 30}
to 28, but the several last was not affected
to any important extent. When cordage
broke 3J to 304 end General Electric
2*1 to 'Mi, the early buyers became
timid and finally started in to un
load. The result was a drop of 2} in
sugar; Ifj in Burlington and Quincy,
14 in Lake Shore and $ to 1 in other shares.
There were vague rumors of a firm or institution in trouble, but they oould not be verified up to a late hour. The strike of the
Lehigh Valley employees had little or no
effeot outside of Reading, which dosed with
a net loss of a point. The total transactions
were 169,460 shares of which 42,338 were

ajritest Somewhere uptown there is a very

One and expensive way. The drawing room
Is Louis Seize in every detail, from the polished floor to the least curve ot the fretted
ceiling. The ball room is purely Grecian,
the family room is Holland to tbe last bit of
delft ware and the smallest painting on the
walls. Then there is a Japanese room so
truly Japanese that in crossiag the threshold
you feel yourself at once to have got into a
"world before perspective���Lamb," as Dr.
Pangloss would say it. And you catch
yourself looking about for the mountain!
that o'ertop the moon and the lady who is
Just stepping into tbe tiny boat that floats
up the mountain side on tbe bosom of the
small brook, and all the other delightful Ir.
responsibilities of this world before the
chaos had all got out of it. And then there
are other rooms. One is Elizabethan and
one Italian, aud every one is Something���or
���Other and belongs to some very definite
age. And as you look about you want to
ask, "But what of all this is just American
and nineteenth century I"���like the bewildered little girl whose relatives fell to classifying ber as "Smith" iu so aud so, and "Jones"
in so and so, until she could stand it no
longer and burst out in a perplexed howl,
"Isn't none ot me just Met"
Why isn't "none of it Just Usf" Why'oan't
we be something more than mere collectors
and imitators of the past) Are we never to
he done bringing the centuries agoue, bock
to dwell under our ridiculous imitation-
imitation��� anoleut roofs? There's a delightful humor about it ull, to be sure,
when one gets done feeling concerned over
its vulgarity. There are the smart, new
Colonial mansions set along our avenues,
with beautiful stained glass windows,
shaded from within by the costliest of laces
and with the evidences of tbe latest sanitary plumbing coming up out of the roofs.
And then there are those other houses with
"Queen Anne fronts and Mary Ann backs,"
and the Renaissance uhd the Qotbic, and
heaven knows what other specimens ot
architecture, sltotildiiriug each other on the
well-paved and electric-lighted avenues of
ot this smart new America of ours
And to say nothing mure of the incongruity of all this, think for a moment of the
anachronism of such an inside as tbe one
we have just spoken of, where a dozen different centuries sre collected under one roof.
Imagine the strain on the mind of a sensitive person who flnds himself trying to
"compose" with each new surrounding.
Taney having to jump when you had just
got yourself to the point of believing that
you were looking out of almond eyes and
tottering about in the folds of your celestial
gown, by simply crossing a threshold, plump
into the court of Elizabeth t And pity the
discomfiture of the sensitive person who
finds himself standing with umbrella and
mackintosh at the door of a Louis Qninse
reception room.
Besides all this, what are we going to
leave to stand for ourselves and for tbe
nineteenth century! Surely there should
be something dignified enough and worthy
enough in our time to be prepetuated. Is
is objected that there really is nothing
original to hope for���that there is no opportunity for creative thoughtl Well, there
may still be the new expression of an old
thought���that ia creative. But we ore
only trying to syllable the old thought, not
to assimilate it ami then give it out stamped
with our own individuality.

Flowers for Farmers' Wives.
How many farmers' wives love flowers and
yearn for them, yet go without them year
after year, having or believing they have no
place in which to keep them and no time for
their eti tivution. I am reminded that flowers are possible for most hard-worked wo>
nmu, by a remark my wife mode recently:
" Plants do better in a kitchen or in a bay
window connected with a kitchen than anywhere else. More roses and other plants
needing high temperature will thrive and
bloom with lees care, and the steam from
cooking nnd washing only seem ft> benefit
them." The time plants take is largely imaginary, and could not lie counted if the favorites were in or next to the kitchen where
the tired wife could turn to them and rest
while watering or admiring them. Many
have shelves or boxos at the kitchen south
windows with excellent results, Where lock
of room forbids this, au alcove or bay window may be built onto the south side at small
expense, removing the house wall so the addition forms part of the room. This will
improve the sanitary condition of the kitchen
nlsr. by making it more sunny. If the work
can be done now, home genius may be employed aud the carpenter's pay saved.���Farm

HOME SULE.
There is reason to believe that the Unionist party in  the  Imperial   Parliament  will
introduce a Home Rule Bill before long to
take the place of the crude and ill consistent
measure which lately received ita quietus in
the   House   of   Lords.    That   it is necessary   to     relegate   some    of    the     petty
matters which so largely occupy the time of
the Imperial Parliament to local bodies, is a
faot recognised  long  Bines   by the   Couser-
ative and Unionist  sections   in the   House.
The larger interests of the���Empire are too
often  sacrificed   to discuss   matters   which
oould be better dealt with by a council,  or
call it parliament, acquainted with all the
details    and    more   in     touch   with    the
people,      thuu      the       Imperial      Parliament     can     possibly    be.       A   Parliament   each   for   England,    Scotland,    Ireland and Wales, with their po wers well defined and limited to local aff.irs exclusively,
with all the safeguards thrown arouud them
which may be deemed nesessary for the  absolute safety of the Empire would relieve the
Imperial Parliament of much that now makes
it not only distasteful but  wearisome to the
members.    Matters of a purely local character could be much better   attended   to by a
local parliament, and the time gained devoted    to    subjects    of    a     wider    range.
To       the     great       majority       of       the
members   a   Scottish   matter   is   of  very
little   importance.    The   Irish,  Welsh and
English members will vo'.e on strictly party
lines, irrespective of the  merita of  the case
from a local point of view, or how it nuy be
regarded by those directly concerned.    The
miserable bantling  whioh has  been shelved
in no way met the  case and seemed only
designed^to dismember the Empire.    But it
by no means follows that a better one cannot be   framed, which   would   be more in
unison   with   the  interests   of   the whole
country.      	
Export Duty on Logs.
Ottawa, Nov. 20.��� The question of the
re-imposition of the export duty on logs is
again attracting attention. In an interview
in this connection to-day Finance Minister
Foster said:���"The hardship complained of
by the Canadian people is that while United
States lumbermen come to Canada, buy up
our timber reserves, and export free of duty,
the material for the manufacture of lumber
and pulp, the Canadian produce of lumber
and pulp is met in the United States with
a very high duty, and at the same time
this country loses the benefit of the manufacture within its boundary of the commodities. There is also a widespread feeling
that our timber is being rapidly lepleted
and that our future supply is being jeopardized without any corresponding advantage
to the United States. The Dominion Government iB making a full investigation in regard to the whole matter and if it reveals
the necessity, therefore, and for a change
being made in the United S ate-s timber
duties the Government must take the matter up and deal with it in the light of existing facts and conditions.
GALLAGHER ALL RIGHT.
He WIU Not Be Releaaed-England WIU
Have Ten New Battle Ships Afloat In
1894.
London, Nov. 20.���In the House of Commons to-day Mr. Herbert Asquith, the home
secretary was asked a question by Mr. John
Nolan (Parnellite) member for North Gal-
way regarding the constitution of Or.
Thomas Gallagher, the alleged dynamiter,
who ia 1883 was sentenced to penal servitude for life. Mr. Aequith aaid that Gallagher had been in nowise injured by a
recent operation that he had undergone for
his eye sight and that he waa in no danger
of becoming blind. The home secretary
added that the Government had no intention
of releasing the prisoner.
In the House of Commons to-day, the
Right Hon. Sir U. KayShuttleworlh,
secretary to the Admiralty announced that
ten battleships had beeu provided for under
the Naval Defenoe whioh would be completed early in 1894. Mr. John 0. Mscdon,
Conservative member for Rotherhithe, asked
for information as to the truth of the statement that there were four hundred derelicts
afloat in the Gulf stream. He also wanted
to know if the Government would join the
United .States Government in blowing up
dereleots and (clearing the ocean ot these
dangers to navigation. The Right Hon.
John Mundell, President of the Board of
Trade, said he would not vouch for the accuracy of the statements and had no information on the subject from Washington. The
Maritime Couluience recently held, had
dealt with the subject of derelicts The subject involved complex questions that are now
under consideration.
Telegraph Operators on Strike.
R<imk, Nov. 20.���All the telegraph operators iu the civil service declared a strike today because several persons had been dismissed without sufheient cause by the directors. Thia evening telegraphio communication is partly suspended throughout the
country. The Government has summoned
the military operators to all the places of
the strikers.
The Druid's In Session.
Prosperity Grove No. 1, United Ancient
Order cf Druids had a gala day yesterday,
beintr the occasion of the annual visit of the
Noble Graud Arch of the Grand Grove of
California F. Carraguaro accompanied by J.
H. Knarstou, Grand Secretary. The grand
officers upon arrival were taken in charge
by officers and members of the local order
and driven around the city. In the evening
a meeting of the order was held which was
followed by a grand banquet at the Royal
Hotel. The chair was taken about 10 o'clock
when about forty members gathered round
the festive board. The entertainment part
of the programme waa introduced by a short
address of welcome by the chairman, ex-
Mayor Hilbert, to the visiting officers, who,
he said, were on their annual official visit to
the Sound and British Columbia cities.
From here they would proceed to Comox to r
open a new lodge there. The toast list v>aa
then taken up, that of "Ihe Queen" being
first which was received by those present
singing the National Anthem. "The President of the United States" coupled with
names of the visiting officers was then proposed and briefly responded to by the
Noble Grand Arch and Grand Secretary.
The former requested that he might be permitted to make his speech later in the evening when he would ask permission to address his Italian friends, as there were
many of them present, in their own language The Grand Secierary following gave
an interesting occount of the progress of the
order from its inception, which was highly
appreciated. He traced it back to the
original order of Druids and the progress
made as now constituted. The society as it
is now known first made its appearance in
England in 1781, and in America in 1830.
There were now seventy-three groves nn
the Pacific coast with assets of over $132,.
000 and a total membership of 4,000.
During the past year the large sum of $24,-
��00 had been spent in relief.
The next toast "The Noble Grand Arch
of California" was responded to in happy
terms by that officer first in English and
then in his own language, Italian.
He complimented the local order
nn their progress. It was his first
visit to British Columbia and he
was charmed with the scenery here. Nanaimo, he said, was a beautiful city and he
hoped to be able to spend hia summer vacation here next year. Tbe part of his address
delivered in Italian was highly appreciated
by those who understood the language.
He is a fluent speaker and a jolly good-fellow. The Toast "Prosperity Grove No. 7"
was responded to by Bro, James, Distriot
Grand Arch, and Bro. Rivers who thanked
the Grand Officers for their visit and briefly

a most pleasant evening of festivity and

WELLINGTON
BRANCH OFFICE.
The people here are wondering why it is
that the laat week's issue of the local weekly, the workingman's friend, that advocate
for Wellington to the exclusion of all others,
has not yet been delivered to subscribers
here, while it was sold in Nanaimo on Saturday last.
The funeral of Ben Lombard took place at
three p.m. yesterday to the Wellington
cemetery, and was largely attended, despite
the inclement weather. R. Kilpatrick, who
has lately added undertaking to his business,
had charge of the funeral arrangements.
W. J. Cuaaok paid us a visit to-day.

THE CITY COUNCIL.
The regular meeting of the City Council
was held last evening in the council chambers.
Present��� His Worship Mayor Haslam and
Aldermen McKinnell, Dobeson, Craig, Hilbert, Quennell, Cocking, Ganner and Nightingale.
Communications.
From Chief Thomas O'Connell, which on
motion was adopted.
From J. J, Wilson, asking for a crossing.
Accounts  were sent in from Craig, Hey-
land, lUwson   and   VV. H.  Ganner,  whict
were referred to the Finance Committee.
Aid. Cockiug presented a report from the
Sanitary Committee, in which they recommended tha the appointment of scavenger
be deferred for the present.
The usual report from R. Prowse as to
the number of men employed in the streets
and tbe work done was submitted for the
consideration of the Council.
Mayor Haalam informed the Counoil that
the City had been served with a writ on the
part of Mr. Vipond claiming the Bum of
$51*10 for extra work and damages suitaincd
in his contract on the .Newcastle townsite
and suggested that a motion should be passed that the City Clerk be instructed to retain Counsel in the interests of the City.
On motion Messrs Yarwood and Young were
retained. The profile of Viotoria Road was
submitted for the examination of the Council and on motion was referred to the Street
Committee. Aid. Hilbert called attention to
the bad state of the South end of Kennedy
street. Those engaged in building operation
there lately could not get to their homes
without stumbling over a lot of rubbish
which waa inconvenient to say the least
of it. He thought the Street Commute
should see that they had better facilities of approace given
them. It was ordered that the corporation
workmen be immediately orderel to make
the premises approaohable. It was reported
that a large body of water ran down Prid-
eaux street which would require a culvert at
ths crossing of Wentworth street to carry it
off.    This was ordered to be constructed.
Aid. Cocking said a pond of water was
lying on Nichol street putting the street in
a very bad condition and it could be easily
remedied by taking dirt from the other side
of the atreet and filling it in. This suggi ���-
tion led to a long disoussion on the best kind
of gravel suitable for suoh pui poses. It
waa finally decided to take beach gravel as a
trial which oould be reported upon after the
repairs were made. The grading of the
Fire Hall was stopped for want of gravel
and it was suggested that suitable materiel
oould be obtained from Mr. Robins' lot for
the asking and its removal would do no
damage to the lot. The City' Clerk was instructed to take ths necessary steps to obtain permission from Mr. Robins.
Ala. Cocking enquired whether t;.e horse
now in corporation stable had been purchased. Aid. Nightingale said the pries asked
for the animal was excessive but it had since
been offered for 1150. The horse they are
using now is a first class one for the purpose
and is owned by Mr. Copeland. He wanM
a good prioe for it but on the other hand it
is an excellent animal. No action was taken.
A letter waa read from Mr. Taggert asking for a contribution from the Counoil to
assist the Poultry Show to be held in Nanaimo next month. ,
On motion of Aid. Quennell, seconded by
Aid. Nightingale, thesum of $50 wa�� granted.
Chief O'Connel's Successor.
The question of the appointment of a
Chief of Police to fill the vacancy caused by
the resignation of Thomas O'Connell was
then taken up. Mayor Haslum pointed
out that this question must for the present
lis in abeyance as the third commissioner
had not as yet beeu appointed. The Counoil
might recommend some person for ths
position but no more. He had no doubt
but that the recommendations of the Counoil
would have its necessary weight with the
commissioners. His Honor Judge Harrisen
had declined to ait on the Licensing Board
yet he might conseut to sit as commissioner
on this case. Aid. Hilbert moved that
applications for the position be called for
but subsequently withdrew the motion on
the understanding that the question be
dropped for another week.
The Fire Hall.
The Frost contraot, the subjeot matter of
which was pretty well threshed ont at last
. meeting of the Council, came up once more
for disoussion. Aid. Nightingale reitera ted
his argument that as Mr. Honeyman had
-been appointed by the Counoil to inspect
and pass the work his certificates must by
respsoted. It was too late to remedy the
error, if error it was. Aid. Hilbert said
that the contraot was as good as the general
run of work in the oity. Aid. Cooking said
that that might be perfectly true, yet there
were many deficiencies in the work and
that the agreement had not been adhered to.
It was then on motion deoided that ths
fire hall be handed over to the firemen,
which was a virtual acceptance of the contract.
The Counoil then adjourned.
On the Beach.
The Richard III, (Howard), has been on
the beaoh, Departure Bay, having some repairs done to her bottom and leaks stopped.
She is awaiting a favorable tide to get off

Mr. Harry and Jim Dunn will leave for

making a match with some local aspirant
for wrestling honors. <

THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL
Tenants Must Vacate the Belmont Farm
Sealers Have a Lock-out and Strike
Combined���Flnlayson Still Absent.
Victoria, Nov. 20.���Considerable interest
oentres in the announcement first, made that
the tenants of the Belmont farm have received their notice to vacate, the estate having passed into the hands of the Government
of Great Britain. The Belmont farm, comprising some two hundred and thirty acres,
extends along the further shore of Eequimalt
harbor, opposite the entrance and almost in
a line wi h the dry dock. It is here that
the largest guns of the new forts will be
mounted, so as to sweep the Straits and
command the sitnation. The price paid for
the farm is said to have been $26,500, a very
moderate sum.
The seal hunters of British Columbia,who
have hoped to have everything their own
way next season, are it is apparent fated to
disappointment. Though they have organized and set their scale of wages first as they
want it the vessel owners know a trick
equally good and are prepared to play it.
The result will be a combination of strike
and lockout. The old brigade of hunters,
holding out for high wages will not ship on
the schooners which begin to leave
about Christmas and their plaoes will
be taken by less experienced men,
expert shots, however, imported from the
Atlantic provinces. Mr. William Munsie
has been one of the first to move in this
matter. He is now in Nova Scotia, where
he has signed crews for all his fleet of
schooners, six or seven in number. It is not
known to be a fact, but it is generally supposed that he is also commissioned to sign
crews for other owners in Victoria, who
hope thus to foil the scheme of the men.
The latter are too greedy. They have been
paid small fortunes in the past, and had
none of the risks or losses to bear. They
still are unsatisfied, however; $000 to $2000
they consider not enough for six months'
work, "everything found."
The sensational story of robbery told recently by Ernest Recarati, who keeps a
little restaurant almost opposite the city
hall, now proves to be a fake of the worst
description. Highwiymen had been making
their appearance in all parts of the oity, and
working upon their known presence in the
town, Recarati wove a charming fabric of
fiction concerning the robbery of his establishment, two men having, he said, threatened him with a revolver and carried away
his valuables���and this with half a score of
police not a block away. Recarati has since
skipped the town, greatly to the disgust of his partner Escalati, who now
freely asserts that the absent one
pooketed the cash and imagined the robbery
to make a good case. He is considerable of
a loser by Recarati's departure and will try
to bring him back.
Yeaterday was the time appointed for the
return of young Mr. Finlayson to his bride,
whom he left under circumstances already
related, on Tuesday last. He did not come
however, and his failure to materialize increases the interest in the Stearge case in
which he is so prominent a figure. The
mysterious bride still maintains her icy
reserve and will talk to no one. She says
Mr. Finlayson will be home sure on Tuesday,
The owners of the coast'ng steamer Mystery, which went ashore in Stump Bay,
West Coast, have received word from Capt.
Anderson that she is badly strained, though
not showing serious injury. It is expeoted
Sunday's gale will not have helped her condition, though it was thought that the high
tide would releaie her on Sunday and that
she could come home for repairs under her
own st:am. If ahe does not make her appearance this morning relief will be sent, as
the owners ais becoming anxious.
The private detective who recently secured a police court conviction against dentist Parker for practicing without registration, has been employed by the Medical
Association to work up cases apainst looal
druggists wbo pressribe simple remedies to
patrons instead of referring them to the
doctors. The latter of course lose fees in
consquenoe���hence the action.

LOCALS.
The Laat Rites.
One more haa been laid in bis last earthly
testing place and will ao remain until the
great architect shall call tbem from refreshment to labor. Archibald Cowie waa born
in the ehire of Lanark, Scotland, 54 yean
ago. While comparatively a young man
hearing of the belter condition of labor in
tbe western hemisphere he left the land of
his birth and came to California, where he
worked some time in the mines at Mount
Diablo, not mauy miles from San Francisco.
It will be ri membered by those who attended the enquiry held on the disaster in the
No. 1 ehaft in this city in 1887, that the deceased gave very valuable evidence as to an
explosion of coal dust which occurred while
he was working there, and at a time when
eoal dust was little known as a prominent
factor in coal mine explosions. After working there for some time he left and came to
Wellington and entered the employ of
Messrs. Dunsmuir, Doggie k Co. This was
in the early seventiei. Circumstances
arose which led to his having
Wellington and settling down in Nanaimo,
where he bout*lit a lot and erected a comfortable residence. Here he served the
Vancouver Coal Company as a miner until
two years ago, when he was prostrated wiih
a serious lesion of Ihe heart. His physician
strictly forbidding hia further continuance
at underground employment, he obtained
a responsible position upon the company's
wharf, which he faithfully attended to until
a little over a week ago. On returning on
this the last day of his appearance on tbe
wharf, he complained to his wife of feeling
unwell, and laid himself down on the sofa
in the hope of soon getting over
the spell. The next day, becoming worse,
his regular medical attendant, Dr. Walkem,
and Dr. Sloggett, as consultant, were called
in who pronounced him suffering from acute
Etieumonitis, or inflammation of the lungs,
verything that could suggest itself in a
medical way was done to aupportthe system
and guide the attack to a successful issue.
His wife minded him both day and night
with womanly devotion,but the constitution
could not stand the strain, and at mid-day
on Saturday last the drawn out thread of
nature'! force was broken and Archibald
Cowie was no more. The news of his death
was received with general regret and by
those who were intimately acquainted with
him with genuine sorrow. He had
many true and staunch friends in
the community and was generally well liked.
It is enough perhaps to sum up his merits
by saying he wai a "good Mason." Yesterday his remaius were interred in the ceme-
try, the funeral being held under the auspices of his beloved mother, Ashlar Lodge of
A. F. and A. M., Rev. D. McRac performing funeral service also of the Presbyterian
Churoh.
A number of beautiful floral tribute! were
deposited upon the coffin of the deceased
from lorrow stricken friends.

Pigeon Shooting.
A shooting match at live and clay pigeons

Realism on the Stage.
There has been a great deal done of late
years toward realism on the stage. We
have had real fire engines, real water, real
burglar!, real horses, etc., but it never
seema to enter the head of the average manager to produce real life, or natural acting,
Nine-tenthi of the playi require the moat
exaggerated style ot acting, and aa the common people are in the majority this style of
work will alwayi have a large following.
The refined class living in the small cities,
that can not really enjoy this sensational
class of plays and playen are compelled to
go to the large citiei to lee the best noting
or stay at home and wait for the really good
artists, which sometimes visit the one-night
stands. Madeline Merli, who will appear
Friday evening, is a first-clasi actress, and
aa such, her engagement in our city should
bs encouraged by a large audience of our
bast people. Reserved seats on sale at Pinv
bury k Co'i.
An Evening With Longfellow.
Wallace Street Epworth League will have
an especially interesting meeting th,is evening.
The Programme will be "An Kvening with
Longfellow," and consist of readings, recitations and songs from the works of the
poet, illustrated with tableaux. There will
be no admission fes and everyone will be
heartily welcomed.

Applications made by settlers to the E.N.
B.R. Co. in Victoria for land about Englishman's River are answered to the effeot
that the land is now on reserve for the possible contingency of a railroad line to Albs-mi.
ARTISTIC HORSEMEN.
The Wild Cossacks of Russia and
Their Marvelous Feata
After Centuries of Marauding:  They Have
Become Disciplined Soldiers and
Have Few Superiors aa
Riflemen.
A' tribe of people known centuries
ago as the wild Kazaks of Dnieper and
the Don, freebooters, as the name implies in the Tartar tongue, lias gradually been brought under rigid military
rule, so that at the present day the descendants of this restless, warfaring
raee furnish the Russian empire with
one of the most valuable elements of
the national army. Their career as
freebooters came to an end under the
reign of Ivan IV., and since then they
have rendered excellent service as
scouts and skirmishers, and their g*ood
offices in the protection of the frontiers
from the Caucasus to China are almost
invaluable.
They are light-armed soldiers, and,
according to a writer In the St. Louis
Post-Dispatch, above all, artists on the
horse. They ride their horses as easily
bareback without saddle or bridle as
with the usual equipments, and always
at the briskest trot or the wildest gallop. The "Djighitovka," as they call
their military code, which prescribes
the many hazardous exercises practiced by the Cossacks, is calculated to
tit the young cadets, the "Djighites,"
for the hardest and most perilous
service rendered by this branch of the
Kussian army. When the cadet has
gone through the intricacies of the
Djighitovka, at which time he has attained his twenty-first year, he has lost
all sense of difficulty or fear and enters
upon his active regimental service for
four years.
Among the most commonplace exercises which the code prescribes are hurdle racing on the part of the men armed
with sword and gun; shooting in every
imaginable position, as turning backward in the saddle or using the horse as
a bulwark to fire from behind. The
latter exercise is particularly interesting. The Cossacks approach at a mad
gallop, come to a sudden stop and jump
from their horses, while the latter,
trained as carefully as the men, lie
down without a word of command and
protect their riders with their flanks.
The Djighitovka is divided into two
kinds of exercises, the arbitrary and
the voluntary. The latter embraces a
line of feats of which the best professional circus rider need not be ashamed.
The men jump to the ground and back
on their horses as they gallop madly
along: they bend away down and lift
objects from the ground as they tear
over the open fields; they jump from
one horse to another while the latter
goes at full speed, or they ride along
standing upright in the saddle and
throwing the spear. In the latter case
the Cossack stands really in his stirrups, which have been previously
crossed back and forth to bring them on
a level with the saddle. Standing on
their heads while charging over an
open field is by no means an unusual
exercise.    One shoulder pressed against
the saddle, the Cossack maintains his
equilibrium by clutching the stirrups
with both hands.
The ambulance service with the Cossack regiments is limited to mutual
help. Two mounted men on horses will
hold a wounded comrade between them
to remove him from the battle field.
Besides these wonderful feats of individual horsemanship the Cossacks execute exploits in groups, showing a daring rider carrying a comrade on his
shoulders to fire at high range.
Cossack military training comprises
two chief branches, that of handling
a horse, and using either sword or gun
with equal facility and to the greatest
disadvantage of the enemy. While the
regular code exercises are hazardous
enough, the voluntary ones are always
accompanied by great risk and danger,
and energy and dauntlessness are as
necessary elements as suppleness of
limb. Much depends also upon tjie
horses, and because men and animals
differ materially iu ��� point of natural
aptitude, the latter exercises are not
required generally but can be chosen at
will, although the hardest and most
vigorous cadets are encouraged very
liberally to go through them and personal rivalry has much to do with developing marvelously fearless Cossacks
for his majesty, the eznr.
Accidents, which arc bound to occur
now and then, do not diminish the
number of candidates for that course of
military training. A Russian proverb
says: "Those who cut wood must not
mind if the chips fly," and Gen. Zey-
dlitz's reply to his royal master has become proverbial among the Cossacks.
"How is it," asked the king, "that so
many men in your regiment break their
necks?" "Your majesty," answered
Zeydlitz, "if you desire it it shall be
stopped, but in that case I will not be
responsible for the conduct of the regiment when it faces the enemy."

tome Fool light Favorites ITiif-raeious In
Seeing Reporters��� Others Who Never
Refuse to Talk for Awhile With a
Member of the Press.
HERE ure few people who are interviewed as frequently
as actresses. As a
rule they are willing
to submit to sews-
paper inquisition, but
there are exceptions.
When an actress baa
reached the highest
pinnacle in public favor she is very apt to
decline to see the
newspaper representative.
Mrs Langtry used to be gracious to the
interviewer. She would allow him to writ*
S:i interview and read It to h��-i*, and then
she would give her assent toil.- publication.
But of late years the Lily has avoided the
reportera. She is atill gracious and pleat-
ant, however, wham she does receive them.
Miss Kosiua Voltes is a charming subject,
Bhe never says no to a request for an interview, and she makes the time pass so pleasantly that the reporter's "few moments,"
have lengthened out Into as many half-
hours. Rose Coghlan avoids tbe person who
seeks her armed with interrogation points,
although if by chance she can not avoid an
interview she submits with the best grace
possible. Fanny Davenport is also a variable subject. Sometimes she will submit to
questioning and sometimes she won't. She
shows that she is anxious to have the interview finished quickly, yet she is courteous,
although a little stiff if you are a stranger.
As Patti is the greatest songstress in the
world it necessarily follows that ou a tour
she is very inaccessible. You may send up
your card, but unless you are personally
known to her, or unless her personal agent
has arranged the affair in advance, you will
never see her. But it is worth perseverance,
end after you have reached the presence of
"la diva" you are rewarded. Patti is exceedingly gracious and affable. She welcomes you with a bright smile aud chats so
pleasantly that tbe interviewer is soon at his
ease. No one can be more winning in her
ways. Vivacious in manner, chatty, and
pleasant, she manages to say many bright
things which read well in print.
Christine Nilsson Is less vivacious than
Fatti. She will laugh and jest, but she can
not lead the conversation. She waits to be
questioned. Wheu Gerster first came to
this country she was very cordial to tbe
newspaper people, but in the in'erviewiug
itage she was shy snd reserved. Like Nils-
son ahe rarely suggested a topic, but waited
until tbe question was put to ber. Then her
replies were brief.
Bernhardt ia a good subject She likea ths
interviewer, and sue is always ready to give
him something to wiite about. In Jher remarks she is witty and incisive. She will
receive clad in a house dress, with her hair
disheveled.   She is thoroughly bohemian.
Georgia Cayvan, who spends her leisure
in practicing gymnastics, will tell you that
"the reporter is a bore," but she will make
this remark with an air which says quite
plainly that she only half believes what ihe
says. As to Mine. Cottrelly, that busiest of
all busy women in the theatrical profession,
let the reporter catch her if he can���possibly
he may get a few moments' conversation
between tbe acts, but he must not expect
more. To her duties as soubrette, stags
eosturaer, and director she adds a not hor���
that of reading the librettos submitted to
tbe McCaull company. Naturally the time
she can devote to her interviewer is limited.
Marion Manola will take the reporter
into her confidence and assure him that she
had originally a higher ambition than that
of appearing in comic opera. "I wish very
much to sing iu Italian opera, but the day
of Italian opera seems to be over for the
presuut. I am just as fond of acting as of
lingiug, and I feel sure that I should make
no succeas at all ia a concert where I should
be obliged to keep still. I am very superstitious, and I think tbe members of our
profession generally are. I have worn a
four-leaf clover incased in a glass around
my neck for tbe last two yeurs, and I
wouldn t take it off for anything."
Minnie Maddern will chat pleasantly with
thereporter and give a good many interesting points. One story of hers in regard to
the "discrimminating public" is worth repeating: "I remember once, several years
ago, when I was playing some very bad
plays, (and very likely playing them
very badly), a certain celebrated baud honored me with a serenade after a performance. A tremendous crowd assembled in
the streets beneath my window and there
wss cheering and shouting. I was very
young and consequently wild with delight
over my triumph, and I remember that I
threw some flowers to the musician!. A
lady occupied the room next to mine���a
great singer and great artist. Nobody paid
any attention to her and on the following
evening my audience was far greater than
the one which greeted her. In glancing
over the account hooks later I discovered
that my manager had paid a pretty sum for
that serenade."
Juetly Indtg-nant.
Every right-minded woman resents any
reflections on her bonnet. Here it an Illustration in a story from open-car time: A
director of a horse railroad line was riding
on a car when a woman near him was robbed of her bonnet by a .gust of wind. Off
jumped tbe woman after her bonnet without waiting for the oar to atop, while the
director sat helpless and angry with visions
of a suit for injuries from the relatives of
the bareheaded woman dauoing through his
own head. But back she came unhurt with
the rescued bonnet on her head, and got
upon the car, which had now stopped for
her. "That's right," said tbe director.
"That's right; risk your life for a two-dollar
bonnet!" The womau'seyes flashed fire, and
she retorted sharply, " 'Tain't a two-dollar
bonnet; it's a seven-dol lar bonnet I"
What Kind or Light.
"I understand," said the private secretary
to a stockholder iu tbe gas company, "that
Sir Edwin Arnold got $25 ,000 for his 'Light
at Asia.'"
"You don't tell mel" was the reply.
"What was it; gas or electricity!"

A Great Increase Over Last Year's Trade
���The Prices Which   Prevailed���llny-
ers Claim to Have Lost Money���Ocean
Disasters.
When the last ship leaves this season 123,-
187 cattle and 42,263 sheep will have beeu
exported. The ocean freights for these cargoes for the season is $1,740,240. There
have been 37,469 more cattle shipped thia
year than last. Many of the steamship companies admit that if it were not for the -attl��
trade their ships could not be run at a profit.
From Quebec only 2,714 cattle were shipped,
iu spite of the energetic efforts of that city.
Many shippers claim that the season has
been disastrous for them, yet they continue
sending cattle forward, aud many hold
that the claim was only a pretence for
hammering down prices. They afflrm
that prices in the British markets
were between ��3 and ��3 less than last
yenr, but they havu to admit that ridiculously low prices were paid here, and where
the disaster occurred is hard to make out,
e.-pee ally since ocenn freights were lower.
They claim an average loss of from ��5 Ri
��10; but are forced to admit that of late
they ore recouping themselves for these
alleged losses. Of ranehe cattle there went
forward 8.820 bead, against 4,200 last year.
Much attention has been given to this
branch of trade by the railways, and live
stock cars were freely provided for the comfortable transportation of tbe stock. The
only serious loss this season has been that of
the Linda, which lost 380 out of 504 head,
the rest being landed in an almost unsaleable condition.
Manitoba  Wheat.
Mr. Duncan McArthur, President of the
Commercial Bank of Manitoba, made the
following wheat estimate for his own guidance; That an average of twenty bushels to
the acre would be harvested in safety, but
that fully four or five bushels would be left
upon the ground. Of the grain saved in
Southern Manitoba 25 per cent, is No. 1
bard, 50 per cent, good marketable grain,
which will fetch from 70 to 75c, tbe balance
having been damaged more by rain than
frost, as it was a season without precedent
for'rain. Mr. McArthur considered that
after deducting what wheat is required to
keep the mills going and for seed purposes
the amount for export would be at least 12,-
000,000 bushels, and might exceed this. Mr.
Baker said that his road is at present moving 100,000 bushels a day of good, marketable wheat, and the average in the Northwest section is 27 bushels, with not more than
2 per cent, damaged. He remarked that the
eastern men in speaking of frozen wheat did
not take into consideration that there will
always be a certain amount run in late on
chance. For instance, a farmer may make
his calculations for 100 acres, and he has
time to put in a few acres more, and as he
has the seed be runs the risk; and if this
extra patch is frosted he is uot surprised,
but eastern men hear of it aud condemn at
least half the crop.
Why Hens do Not Lay.
Oue of the puzzling questions that often
arise in the experience of persons raising
fowls, is why their bens are not laying so
well as their neighbor's, who is far more
fortunate iu the weekly additions made to
his egg-basket. Many persons start out
with the confident expectation of uninterrupted success in raising chickens and
eggs, to find at last that the business has for
some reason become unprofitable. Tho
Southern Farm, commenting ou the above,
advises: "In purchasing bens for laying,
particular attention should be given to the
solor uud appearance of their combs, which
-hould be bright and red. Whore the comb
has a dull, sickly color and a kiad of flatten'
ed appearance, no amount of breeding or
care will force the laying of the eggs as long
as these conditions exist. Again, the legs
should be smooth and clean aud free from
scales and the appearance of spurs, both of
which indicate that the hen has passed tbe
laying age. The cock should be brought
out of a different flock and be as purely bred
as possible. The principal causes of failure
iu egg production are believed to be, first,
keeping heus that are too old; second, breeding iu aud in, or a failure to introduce new
blood from sources entirely outside of oue's
Bock; and third, keeping the flock too long
in the same runs."

DAILY TELEGRAM
The Experimental Farms.
Last year some 2,760 three pound bags of
seed grain were distributed throughout tbe
Dominion, through the Dominion's experimental farms, of which number 1,067 were
sent to farmers in the Proviuce of Ontario.
During the last spring, and for the purpoaei
of the harvest 'of 1800, the distribution exceeded 12,700 three-pound bags, of which
number 4,544 went to farmers in Ontario.
These distributions are carefully recorded,
and each farmer receives these samples of
grain on the express condition that he reports his experience and results to Prof.
Saunders at Ottawa. It will be seen, therefore, that by means of luch a far-reaching
���ystem the problem of suitability may, in
�� series of years, he satisfactorily solved.
Tree Culture.
If a majority of trees in the wood-lot are
young, growiug and valuable timber, it is
better to give up the ground entirely to
them than to try to seed with grass for ths
little pasture that may thus be got. Whatever vacancies exist plant in new trees, aud
thickly enough so that they will grow
up tall with few sido branches. An exception to this may be made where the tree is
a sugar maple, and to be used for sugar
making. Other things beiug equal, a maple
that has a broad, bushy top makes the
meet sugar. It generally also, if not on
too wet ground, gives the sweetest sap.

The Windsor.
Assaulted a Sheriff.
A Victoria firm having a claim against the
barque Dominion, which lay as long in difficulties at Departure B*y, put the matter in
the hands of Messrs. Belyea k Gregory, who
after obtaining a judgment sent a sheriff up
to seize her until some settlement of the
debt was effected. He arrived in thia city
on Saturday last at noon, and in his capacity as marshal of the Admiralty Court,
proceeded to Departure Bay, expecting to
take peaceable possession. He boarded the
vessel and at once announced his errand,
but the party in charge, John Ferguson,
ordered him off the vessel, and worried in
mind, injudiciously assaulted the representative of the Crown. Sheriff McMillan, who
at all times is a quiet, discreet gentleman,
at once returned to shore and telephoned
from the East Wellington wharf to this city
for police assistance. Constable McKiunon
was at once despatohsd to the sheriffs assistance and on his arrival put Ferguson
under arrest. To aecommodate Mr. McMillan, who wished to return to Viotoria by
Sunday morning's train, Ferguson was
brought up before Stipendiary Magistrate
Planta on the grave charge of assaulting a
sheriff in the discharge of his duty. In defence Ferguson stated that he had for the
moment lost his pretence of mind, He was
laboring under great excitement caused to a
great degree by the fact of the vessel being
indebted to him in a corsiderable sum for
wages and he feared any person getting in a
claim before him. He expressed sorrow for
his act which had due weight with Sheriff
McMillan who, with his well known good
nature asked the presiding magistrate to
deal as leniently with the offender as he
could. The decision was reserved until
Wednesday next.
Make it a point to call on Sloan k Scott
to-day and get in on their big discount sale.
They have still an elegant line of Jackets in
Sealette and Cloth which are really tho
finest ever imported to Nanaimo.    16-11 -3t.
