Berlin, Feb. 8.���In commenting on the
possible consequences for Germany of rejecting the Russian treaty, the G-rmania, a
Roman Catholic organ, says: "The present
position is not one of which Germany can he
proud. If the nation be oblige'! to adopt
treaties for fear of a neighbor's anger, what
becomes of our boast, thai Germans fear
God, but nobody else in the world? We
protest ugiinst the pressure exercised upon
the Reiohstag by threats of war."
The Munich Ailtjemaine Zeitung, an irreconcilable Bismarckian organ, siy**.: "No
more mistaken i eans could hive heen found
than to place the Reichstag under pressure
of Russian war threats. All parties, even
the friends of the treaty ought to join in a
protest against this course. What purpose
does the Triple Alliance serve, if the rejection of the treaty will expose Europe to the
chance and fate of battle?"
The Hamburger Nachrichten, Priuce Bismarck's organ, says: "If we ever mentioned
the Czar's wishes as arguments for the
adoption of any measures we were taunted
with cringing before Russia. Io the preseut
case an attempt has been made to intimidate the Reichstag."
The Fveisinnige Zeitung, edited by Eugene
Richter, the Radical leader, says that the
EmpTrr William ppoke thus to Herr Von
Lovoizo*.*.*, at Chancellor Von Capiivi's
dinner party: "I am far from dedring toin-
tluenoe anybody's convictions in thiB matter,
but just consider how the Czar would look
upon the rejection of the treaty. We would
be unable to understand how men who frequent my court, and wear my uniform,
could vote against me on a measure of such
far-reaching importance."
The Coreon Pronounced Fit.
London, Feb. 8.���The Allan Line steamer
Corean, was examined to-day at Kilrush,
on the Shannon river, Ireland, by a Board
of trade Inspector and was pronounced fit.
She sailed to-night. The Borean put back
last week after a difficult experience in a
storm and was pumped out at Kilrush.
Some of her passengers feared to embark in
her, for the United States before she had
beeu examined, and a Board of Trade Inspector was summoned to satisfy them of
her seaworthiness, All the passengers acre
in good spirits when she sailod.
Limiting Wheat Binding.
Paris, Feb. 8.���Al a cabinet council held

Germany and Russian Insolence.
Berlin, Feb. 8.���The Kier Zeitung to-day
in an article on the Russian-German Commercial treaty, says that the German people
will not allow themselves to be intimidated
by Russian insolence. It adds that if
Russia wants to gain the throne by force of

Da Gama's Ultimata.
Lisbon, Feb. 8.���The steamer Magdalene,
from Rio Janeiro, January 24th, has arrived
here. From advices brought by her, it is
learned that a meeting was held on January
23rd, on board the American fWship San
Francisco, between Rear-Admiral Benham,
the American commander; Admiral Da
Gama, eoinmanditg the insurgent forces at
Rio Janeiro, and President Peixoto. Previous to the meeting, Admiral Da Gama
insisted that his official rank be reoognized,
but waived the right of being saluted on
being met. Admiral Benham, it iB said, reluctantly agreed io ihis. At the meeting
Admiral Da Gama set forth his terms for a
settlement of the war. Tho substance of
these terms were, that a civilian president
of Brazil should be elected, aud that the
membeis of the army and navy should not
vote on the elections. To these terms President Peixoto rofused to agree. The advices
further show that the insurgents aim to
capture Samoa, the Government's base of
supplies for Rio Janeiro. The insurgent
warship Republiea and four transports are
said to have been pushing to land troops
there. Half of the force under General
Saraiva will go to Santos from Sao Paolo, in
order to co-operate with the other insurgents there. The other half of General
Saraiva's forces were it is Baid, going to invest  Rio Janeiro.
Benham Visits Peixoto.
Rio de Janeiro, Feb. 8.���Thoma
Thompson, Uuited Slates miniater, and
Renr-admiral Benham, commander of the
Uuited Slates fleet, aud his Btaff called
upon President Peixoto, at the palace, this
afternoon. They were escorted, both going
and coming, by a handsome company of
Brazilian Lancers. The Minister of Marine,
the Minister of Foreign Allans and many
officers of the Brazilian army and navy
assisted the president at the reception.
Peixoto made a favorable impression on the
minds of the visitors. He wus inviied by
Rear-admiral Benham to visit the American
fleet and he promised to do so in the near
future. Manuel Victorine Pereira, of Bahia,
has bejti named as a candidate for the vice,
presidency in tho election to be neld on
March the first. Like Dr. Prudcnte De
Moares, the nomiueo for the presidency,
Pereira is a civilian. Both wero nominatod
by twenty senators under the chairmanship
of Thomas Delfino. The fact that President Peixoto approves of this nomination of
civilians shows the falseness ofjthe insurgent
statements, that he desires to continue
military rule in Brazil. All communications
between the Amerioan naval crews and lhe
shore has been forbidden on account ot the
yellow fever.	
An Admiralty Lord on the Navy.
London, Feb. 8.���Mr. Edmund Robertson, one of the Lords of the Admiralty,
addressed a meeting at Dundee today. He
said that the naval programme **f the Government, for 18114 and 1895 would snow no
intention to forfeit or even risk in the
slightest degree, Great Britain's position of
supnrio ity over othei nations. The estimates that wouiii soon he published would
satisfy the advocates of a siroug navy.
These estimates would only be for a year,
though part of the programme for a period
of years had been claboialed in all its
details. There was good reason, Mr. Robertson added, for tho refusal of the Government to publish all the details of its programme. When the last naval defence act
was announced, France aud Russia immediately increased their expenditures to keep
pace with Great Britain The net result
was that Great Britaiu had beeu left in a
position relatively the same as Bhe had before occupied England, lie declared, could
always build quicker and keep the lead in
completed ships, besides choosing types of
vessels that would outclass those of other
countries.

CORBETT*S CHANCES
Considered by an  Expert���Daly Voices
His Opinions.
Buffalo, N.Y., Feb. 8.���Talking of the
chances pugilists have of dethroning cham-
pion Jim Corbett, Jim Daly said to-night
that he had no fear of Jackson or Fitzsim-
mons, but he does believe that "Denver"
Ed. Smith would have a remarkably good
chance against Corbett. Daly says he knows
what Corbett can do and Ed. Smith as well,
having fought the Denverite to a finish in
this city Borne years ago.
Of course Mitchell's reputation is lost
aud smaller than it was before the Jacksonville fight," said Daly. "But compare
Smith with Mi cheil whin the Englishman
waB good and you will find he has a pretty
good second. He fought Mitch a 43 round
draw with hare knuckles when Mitchell waB
in his prime. Mike Cleary fought two
draws with Mitchell. Smith whipped
Cleary in two minutes, and he defeated the "Marine" in two minutes just after
Dampsey's defeat at the "Marine's"
hands. Then Smith fought Jackson a
five-round fight iu Chicago, and he had the
advantage all through. In the fifth he had
Jackson over the ropes and nearly out, and
it was only by an accident that Jackson was
not whipped. Smith has a chance against
anybody living, I tell you. If the now
talked oi match between Jackson and Smith
is arrangeu, i w.ii hoc* *__t_* ii. batlUwl
should be even, too. Iu all his fights Smith
has fought in the style of his opponent and
defeated him each time. I don't ithink
Jackson ever intends fighting Corbett, if
they do meet it is 3 to 1 Jim will win. He
should have whipped Jackson in San Francisco four years ago, but he had no encouragement from his friends and no confidence in himself. At that time he fought
Jackson a 67 round draw, and you know
how he has improved since hia fight with
Sullivan, and what confidence was worth
to him in his battle with Mitchell."
Russia is Anti-Catholic.
London, Feb. S. ���A despatch from
Rome sayB: "The Russo-Papal entente
exists only ou wanlly. The position
of the Oatholios in Russia is intolerable,
! but FruncH, supported by Cardinal Ram-
polla, strongly opposes any action likely to
offend Russia. Bishop Zerr, who remains in
R .me, was not, allowed when in Tirraspol,
Kussia, to write to the Vatican except
through the Imperial officials. No Catholic
cleric in Russia may leave his diocese without
the government's consent. Catholic newspapers and confraternities are forbidden. A
Catholic priest baptizing the child from a
mixed marriage is liable to punishment."

A Nogro Escapes Banging.
Columbia, Miss., Feb. 8.���Win. Purvis,a
young negro, was sentenced to be hanged
here yesterday for the alleged assassination
last July of William Buckley, of Marion
county, by a gang of white caps. Purvis
wsh convicted on circumstantial evidence.
He acknowledged being one of the party,
but declared he did not tire the shot which
killed Buckley. His case was appealed to
the Supreme Court, and sentence was affirmed Purvis was accompanied to the
scaffold hy Sheriff M.iogeo and several
deputies. He had passed the night in
prayer and protesting his innooence of the
murder of Buckley. . A strong guard of
deputy sheriffs had beeu drawn up
around the scaffold to prevent a
rescue by the whi'ecaps. The black
cap was placed over the condemned
man's head ami the drop fell at 12:35 p ni.
As soon us the drop fell, Purvis, instead of
being hurled into eternity, was precipitated
to the ground. The noose had parted and
Purvis' neck instead of being broken, was
only slightly abraised by the rope Ho fell
on hia back and remained perfectly still for
a fow minutes. A man rushed forward aud
bending over the negro, said: "Are you
hurti" From under his black cap, Purvis
replied: "For God's sake get me out of
this." Others came up and Sheriff Macgee
made ready to conduct Purvis back 'o the
Bcaffold for a seoond attempt. There were
four of the Board of Supervisors present aud
they called the sheriff into the court house
for a conference. Rev. Mr. Silbey, of the
Columbia Methodist Church, made an impassioned plea to the spectators and it was
decided by a unanimous vote that the execution be postponed. The negro was to-day
taken to Moridan and the faot telegraphed
to Governor Stone.

The Highest Authority in America.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper authority in America, speaks thus of Ths
Daily Tklkokam:
"Hid you ever hear of a place called
Nanainiu? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider au enterprising oity and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of Tub Daily
Tbleoram, Nauaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it * ompare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
why it is that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may bo learned from Nanaimo."

Mrs. Onequi's Reply to Professor Cozens.
Bonos Tklkoram:
Sib,���Professor Cozens has said the magistral ��� would not even look at his diploma.
Asl understand, the magistrate was uot
there to 'race up the past events of tho pro-
feasor's life, but to hear evidence on a charge
that he had broken a law of this city. On
the fly leaf which the professor gave me it
gois on to sav, I will make a musician, a
poet, and will lead in social life; to be happy
I must marry a certain described man, and I
must have children, but nol many; also that
there are great possilnli'ies within my reaoh.
He also acknowledges in the fly leaf that he
toi.i me a great deal ihat was not written
down. I consider the professor a fortune
teller from my interview and fly leaf, al-
thoilgh I think he understands phrenology.
It h,** would practice with the same zeal he
exl ibits in fortune telling, he surely would
meet with great results. L. Onequi.

CURING   A   "TANTRUM.1
How Mrs. Mordoe  Started Out  Hot aad
Came in Cool.
Mrs. Murdoc had one of her peculiar
attacks the other day. Sho felt it coming on all the afternoon, but restrained
herself until her docile spouse came
home at six o'clock, when she got the
word and started off on a kite-shaped
track. She went to the quarter, says
the Detroit Tribune, without a slip;
turned into the backstretch at a ballbearing- gait: passed the three-quarter
pole proing* smooth and was going down
towards the wire like an old campaigner, when Mr. Murdoe, who was
feeling unusually brisk, attempted to
call her back with a mild protest. That
started her off again and she trotted
another heat. As she came up the
stretch again the old man began to feel
a sort of pneumatic tire and ventured:
"But, Eliza���"
"Don't talk to me, you miserable
brute," she shouted.
The old man sighed apologetically.
"You know you're a lazv, (food fer
nuthin'���"
"All right, 'Liza���"
"Ole varmint without oue spark o'
manhood."
He did not question the statement.
"You'd let your wife work 'er hands
off an' die in the poor-'ouse."
There was no protest filed.
"You great hulkin',round-shouldered,
lop-sided, lantern-jawed, knock-kneed
���Ooo-oo-ooh!"
She clenched her hands as if she
longed to strangle him. He didn't
seem to mind it now. He was waiting
for the storm to subside.
"Oh, you bald-headed���"
"See here, now, 'Liza," said the old
man, solemnly, "see here���-now who 'n
thunder's to blame fer thet?"
And Eliza did not answer.

Alleged Beaeon of a Man's Dream About
Snakes.
"I had a dream a few nights ago,"
said a well-known young man to a St.
Louis Republic reporter, "and I have
not recovered from the effects of it yet,"
and he drew a long breath and sighed
wearily.
"I had gone home in the 'wee sma'
hours' (my business is such I cannot do
otherwise) and laid down on the sofa,
where the stiff cold breeze that was
blowing that morning fanned me into
insensibility and caused a most unpleasant dream to come to me. I thought
the ground was covered with snow, and
as I stood watching the flakes come
down I saw a small snake of the garter
variety run from a pile of rubbish and
wiggle through the snow. 1 could not
believe it hardly, for I never heard of a
snake running in the snow. I looked
closer���it was a real snake and was
darting its tongue out at me.
"But I knew that garter snakes were
not dangerous, so I tried to catch it,
but it ran under an old pair of steps.
I started to move them and got down on
all fours to do so. I started to pulling
at the steps, but on looking up to see
what was causing a peculiar sound I
saw a big red scorpion coming down the
steps. I tried to back away, but the
scorpion kept coming. I attempted to
get up and run, but something held me
down and I kept backing. That scorpion was malignant. He would run a
few feet backward, then stand on his
front feet and throw his tail over at me,
trying to hit me with the. sting on the
end of it. Then he would laugh, or
give himself, the appearance of laughing, and would wink his eyes and lick
out his horrid forked tongue. I backed
till something stopped me. My hair
stood on end and I could feel my eyes
bulge out. A cold sweat broke out on
me. Finally with a double somersault

SOME CUfllOUS  PHOTOGRAPHS.
Pictures Which Are   fulsilili-   Until They
Have Beeu Smoked.
A late curiosity in photography is a
photograph that is developed by tobacco smoke. Nothing is seen on the paper, previously prepared, until it is held
in the smoke, when the picture grad-
iittlly comes out in strong black and
white.
The process of preparation is very
simple. 11 consists in preparing a .small
photograph on chloride of silver papei
and dipping it into a solution of bi
chloride of mercury, so as to bleach i(
and cause it to disappear. It is necessary to prepare the photograph without
gold.
The bichloride of mercury changes
the photograph partly into proto-
chloride of mercury,which is also white,
and thus renders it invisible on white
paper. The image may afterward be
made to appear by the action of hypo-
chloride of soda or that of ammoniacal
vapor.
Tobacco smoke, which contains
vapors of ammonia, succeeds very well,
as we have above noted, and colors the
magic photographs black.

FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 9, 1894.
KITCHEN'S   MOTION.
Mr. Kitchen's motion to the effect that
a false statement was made in the document
entitled "British Columbia's defamers answered," which waB printed as a state paper
at the.public expense, viz., that the number
of votes cast at the last general election for
candidates who avowedly support the Government was equal to the number of votes
polled for both the Opposition and Independents combined This statement Mr.
Kitchen endeavored to prove was false; and
in order to do so he has counted in the votes
cast for Messrs. Home, Punch, Kellie and
Wilson, who, for a long time p-wt, have
habitually voted with the Government, and
added in the registered vote of Nanaimo
city, where Mr. Keith, a member of the so-
called Independent branch of the Opposition, who, like all his fellows that follow
the lead of Messrs. Brown and Cottou, is iu
fact more virulently opposed to the Government than those candidates who ran
as avowed Oppositionists, was elected
by acclamation, and, therefore, the
registered vote for Nanaimo city should not
be added on either side.
Assuming Mr. Kitchen's figures to be
technically correct, and to be correctly
added, he finds as the result that 11,403
votes were cast lor the Opposition and Independent candidates and only 8,177 for
those candidates who ran as avowed supporters of the Government. But as stated
above, the votes cast for Home, Punoh,
Kellie and Wilson, who are habitual supporters of the Government, are wrongly
counted in, and the registered vote of Nanaimo city added, where Keith was elected
by acclamation. If the votes cast for Home,
Punch, Kellie and Wilson, are deducted
from Kitchen's sum total of the Opposition
and Independent votes, and added to those
cast for the Government candidates, as it
is only fair should he done, and if the
registered vote of Nauaimo city is not
added to either side, since no votes were
oast in Nanaimo, Keith being elected by
acclamation, a very different result is arrived at. The total vote polled for the Opposition and Independent candidates, according
to Mr. Kitchen, was 11,403, and for the
Government, 8,177. The number of votes
cast for Messrs. Home, Punch, Kellie and
Wilson, who invariably vote along with the
Government, and did so long before the
paper entitled, "British Columbia defamers
answered," was written, was 1,795. Deducting this from Mr. Kitchen's total of
11,403, which does not include the registered
vote of Nanaiino, and adding it to the vote
which Kitchen allows was cast for the
avowed supporters of the Government we
have the result, for the Government, 9,972
votes, for the Opposition and Independent
Oppositionists, 9,608. This fully bears out
the statement made in the pamphlet entitled,
"BritiBh Columbia's defamers answered,"
whioh Mr. Kitchen objected to as false.
The registered vote of Nanaimo city ia not
counted on eii her side, as Mr. Keith was
elected by acclamation, no votts being oast
for him or against him. Therefore Mr. Kitchen's claim that the
great majority of the votes oast at
the last general election for the Province
were cast against the Government is proved
when analyzed to be without foundation.
Moreover many of the votes oaBt for those
candidates, who, calling themselves Independents, have since joined the Opposition
and vote with it against the Government on
all occasions, were obtained ou virtually
false pretenses by men who said they would
support all good measures of the Government, but who instead have opposed all
alike, both good and bad. The game of "the
so-called Independents, who are really Oppositionists, and very virulent and unscrupulous ones at that, is, we think, about
played out. At the next general election if
they come out at all, it must be in their true
oolors. Everyone will know them to be
virulent and determined opponents of the
Government, and it will be vain to oall
themselves Independents, though some of
them, who.have a speoial love for hypocrisy
and sham, like their leader, Cotton, will be
sure to do so. It will be seen what votes
are cast for them, and it will be fair to
count these votes as cast against the Government, at all events in most cases.
GLADSTONE WILL  NOT RESIGN.
It is reported in a despatch from London
that Sir Algernon E. West, an intimate
friend of Mr. Gladstone, who was his companion at Biarritz, has arrived home. Sir
Algernon says that Gladstone is in excellent
health, enjoyed his visit to Biarritz, and has
no intention of resigning. Resignation in
the sense of stepping down and out of office
is not a virtue of Mr. Gladstone. He can
be depended on always not to resign as long
as he can help it. The man among the
Liberals, who hopes to be Gladstone's successor, will have to cultivate the virtue of
patience for some time longer. It may
even be that the people themselves will have
to decide the matter, by leaving Gladstone
in a minority at the next general election,
before he makes up his mind to resign. If
they give him a majority, however small,
when the elections take place, he will hold
on to office and power, in all probability,till
death steps in to close the scene. If the
British want Gladstone out of offi ie, before
he and the Home Rulers succeed in disrupting the United Kingdom and ruining the
empire, they will have to tell him so plainly
by leaving him in a minority at
the general elections. Nothing short
of this will do. Mr. Gladstone,
who haB a very high opinion of himaelf, believes that he is necessary to the good government of Great Britain���that, in faot, he
is the only man living who is fit to be
Premier of England. It is probably this
notion, as much as love of power, which to
him is as the breath of his nostrils,
makes him cling to office, with all its toils
and responsibilities, at his advanced age.
He even seems to have persuaded himself
that Home Rule for Ireland, and the disruption of the United Kingdom, would be
for the benefit not only of Ireland but of
Great Britain also, by substituting a union
of hearts for one maintained by force. But
in cherishing this idea, Mr. Gladstone probably stands alone among educated men,
both in Great Britain and Ireland.
Irish Home Rulers know very well that
home rule would be the firBt step to separation, which the Celtio and Roman Catholio
Irish have long ardently desired, which Parnell said they would never rest till they
had accomplished; and they are simply taking advantage of Mr Gladstone's hallucination about a union of hearts to accomplish
their purpose. While Mr. Gladstone fondly
imagines that he is using them for his political purposes, they are iu reality using him.
Tho Briiish people have been blind io their
own interests to permit the game to proceed
so long; they will be incurably and hopelessly
blind if they do not soon put an end to it
altogether.
Shcretaky CARLISLE is reported to be
disturbed over the Bland Bill to coin the
seignorage silver in the treasury. He finds
that the Bland Bill is what we said yesterday it was, virtually an inflation measure,
that under it not only would about $55,000,-
000 of silver certificates be isaucd immediately, but it would put in circulation 28,-
000,000 of Bilver dollars that have been
lying in the t reaaury vaults for years. It is
understood that Carlisle will prepare a substitute for Bland's Bill, that will permit the
coinuge of the seignorage and its use as fast
aB practicable. It is believed that Bland
will uot accept Carlisle's bill, but will persevere with his own.
Tiik London Times, which ia publishing
a series of articles on Canada, published one
on Wedneaday which is attracting great attention. It thinks that the vaBt coal resources of the Dominion will ultimately
make Canada i.hn kiy-stone of Britain's
naval position. 1' advocates the fortification of Nauaimo, in addition to the worka
at Esquimalt. It also deals with the questions of independence and annexation, and
holds that the carrying out of either idea
would be auch a blow to Britain'a naval supremacy, that Englishmen oould not treat the
subject lightly. Englishmen will shortly
come to understand Ihat Canada is by far
England's most valuable dependency, the
loss of whioh wonld grevously maim, and
even perhaps destroy the empire, and that
British power in the Dominion must be
maintained at all costs and against all
enemiea, both domestic and foreign.

Kaslo, Feb. 8.���[Special]���Business in
Kaslo continues good and a number of
people are coming in from the outside by
every boat, some being moneyed men,
others being prospectors and miners, who
are tired of living in Spokane, because of
the dull times there, and come here because
there is more life in the town and better
chances in the hills. The mines are all
holding out very well. The men
working on the Northern Belle have
come into a big body of ore
and on the Idaho also, a new large shoot of
ore has been unearthed. A tunnel 80 feet
long has been run on the Virginius and a
body of ore has been struck which runs
about 170 ounces in silver and 60 per oent.

new names and altogether nearly 300 new
names have bcon sent in for registration

LOCAL  NEWS.
Tbe Fire Company's Plea.
Finding their liabilities considerably in
excess of the assets of the exchequer, t he Fire
Company has petitioned the City Council,
asking it to have the apparatus cleaned at
the city's expense, so as to curtail, for a
time, the expenses of the brigade.
A Canine Capture.
The poundkeeper was on the warpaUi
yesterday nnd numerous tykes were roped
in to the disgust of their owners when they
discovered their losses. It is generally
hoped that the poundkeeper will bestow
���ome of his attention on the many curs
loose in the streets. These appear to have
no owners, tags, or anything else, except a
pernicious desire to quarrel and get iu the
way, and ,'they'd never be missed."
Tbe City Re-Survey.
It was intended last night to hold a
special committee, meeting io connection
with the throwing out of the city's re-survey
by the Government. It has, however, beeu
postponed for a while, when the matter will
be thoroughly thrashed out. It appears
that several citizens have writteu to the
Government objecting to some features iu
the new survey v. hich delimited their pio-
perties tco closely. In face of this, t lie
Government could not pass the bill without
having a notice of 60 days iu the Provincial
Gazelle.
m	
Tbe Ill-Starred Estelle.
It seems no longer possible to reasonably
hope that the Kstelle has uot become
wreoked, either by an explosiou or by being
caught in the treacherous whirlpools of
Seymour Narrows. The more recent reports
have all been confirmatory of the first. Il
seems that a man called Holston waB the
first to discover the two bags of chopped
feed and the life belt marked
EsteUe, which he brought to Comox
with a letter from Mr. John Piercy
whioh was the first report of the matter.
This alone, however, would not have been
conclusive evidence of the EsteUe having
foundered, if it had not been followed up by
other findings which render it altogether
unlikely that the tow boat should be s.ife
and sound.
The latest news brought down by the ss.
Joan was to the effect that the pilot house
had been found and other wreckage of an
identifying kind. This renders it impossible to longer hope for the best.
The boat was valued at about 8-20,000 aud
is insured for $15,000. It is only just within a short time that Mr. Norman MeDou-
Sall the brother-in-law of Mr. A. Haslam
ad purchased a half share in the Kstelle,
and this was his first trip ou her.
It was the first trip r.lso of her
captain, Christanson, who thus went
to an untimely doom. No occurence
of recent event has eo much raised the
sympathy of all classes as this unfortunate
catastrophe. Nanaimo extends its condolence to all the  sufferers and bereaved   ones.
 ���	
A Fashionable Fcminino Fad.
Drawn work is coining greatly into fashion
among the ladies of Nanaimo, as a means of
passing away the time aud beautifying the
appearance of the material worked upon.
Tea cloths, pillow slips, counterpanes,
anstmacassars and pincushions, are some of
the many household goods made aud ornamented with this particular kind of embroidery. On first viewing the work, when
in its primitive stages, it seems hard to
imagine how the delicate filigree of the completed article can be accomplished But
after carefully watching tho skilful fingers
of the practised workers, a revolution is
soon brought about, whilst the attention of
the interested watcher is kept riveted iu
silent admiration of the deftness and skill
displayed. All that is required
for this work in the way of
tools are a couple of light wooden
rings, one of which fits closely into the
other, on which the material is stretched,
and a needle, scissors, thread, and a piece of
linen or calico, with fingers oapable of doing
delicate work, such as tying knots and
drawing single threads, etc (hence the
name) out of the cloth. The portions of
work on which it is iutended to form a
design are in the fir..t plaoe, by drawing the
threads in oue direction, made practically
skeleton, aud then it is that by the innumerable tying of knots and twisting of ti.reads
in different directions that the beautiful
designs that are turned out gradually become formed. The app-iarai.ee of drawn
work greatly resembles, in fact it is a variety of laoe; and it was first invented and
discovered by an Italian. Further particulars of this subject can not be given on
account of the objections of the staff who
manifest a too eager curiosity as to the best
methods of studying this subject, thus
seriously interfering with the thought and
reflection necessary to continue the ancient
history of this interesting theme.

a plpea as plovrboy. You could manage
to ride a sober far?n horso, couldn't you?
Ami riow, Mr. Newton, if this place can
be made of use to you, will you not give
ir-c 1 ho opportunity of placing it in your
ban* ��, li'.aviug you to arrange all tho
prehii.tmries to your own -satisfaction,
ouly stipulating that you will not make
a bjisinees arrangement of it between
us aa with a stranger, but give me my
place as a son in the matter."
Again the parents' eyos mot, and this
time there was no mistaking the meaning that long, earnest look revealed.
Pride in the filial affection of one they
had so lung loved, and inter so satisfaction that ������ac.h day's development of his
noble* nature gave increasing assurance
of their daughter's Happiness. Lillian's
���approving smile was ample delight fur
her lover. Ralph was longing to banish
tho momentary silence by some waggish
remark when his father said:
"I wish, Eustace, you conld roalize
how truly we regard you ns a son. But;
before I reveal your mother's thoughts
an.1 wishes and my own, or reply at all
to your suggestions, I must bespeak your
patience while we, as is most just, listen
to a word from all. George, my son,
what have you to offer now?"
So the various members of the Newton family agreed to the plan summed
up 1 * Ralph,
" *>-, ell, I vote for the country, the farming operations," said he. "and we will
malic our Hose a true, genuine Yankee
housewife, Jasper, a burning and shining light among our southern dames.
Whew I No offense, my lord, I trust!
You surely can put up with a little sport
without such portentous frowns."
"I am not conscious of frowning," said
Jasper moodily. "But I own I do not
understand tlie spirit there can be in
speaking of your sister as doing hard
labor, nor will I tamely listen to your
sneers against my countrywomen."
"Nor will I hoar you, Jasper Grenville, speak in that tone to my brother.''
said Rose, laying an ice cold hand on her
lover's arm. "You strangely forget yourself to Imagine an implied insult from
one who has ever been a true and loving
friend."
"Pardon me, Rose, I bare no wish to
imagi-ie an insult, but it sounded very
like it."
"Yon are in a strangely suspicion and
cap: i nue mood tonight. Juajier, and could
I believe for one moment tbat our reverses"	
"Say it not, Rose, doar Rosel Tou
know perfectly well you havo no cause
to believe mo capable of any but the tend-west and truest sympathy."
"Pardon the interruption," said Mr.
Newton firmly, "but this must cease.
In my presence disputes or unkind re-
nis*r!-j cun never be ./.orated. It is un-
looked for, my friend, to see you so disturbed by a simple remark, which, although it may have soonied ill timed, a
short, time since you would h.ive been
the hint, to laujj'h at and enjoy."
CHAPTER Va
Mr. and Mrs. Newton wore tmable during the evening to forget the intimation.-
Geon-e had given them respecting Jumper's predictions. They strugglod faithfully against suspicion and v.-uuld have
rejoiced to ba convinced I .... laoy h...'i
been mistaken. But that Grenville had
come tj tliei.i that evening laden with
Wine clisquios which ho was anxious to
conceal wan too apparent, and that Ho.-.*.-
was disturbed and made uncertain by it
was also equally manifest.
After all were seemingly calm Mr.
Nov.-. on again referred to Dunbar's proposition and acknowledged that they had
always indulged the hope that some time
they might retire from tho city and devote their last days to just such pursuits
us were now open to them.
But present indications portended a
year of strife, nnd any day might Bee our
country involved in all the horrors cf
civil war. Was it wise, therefore, to
enter upon an occupation ttvit would 1 I
difficult to manage, pariiutUnrly . .*. al',
Duclt a c.ilnmity come upon u. ? ..* i* i
acknowledged that every guIihuiu * * ich
had risen beforo his mind as .. ��� ���<rabid
had been chicked in the o;us .*. i y ti.e
steadily increasing conviction that the
arrogance of tho south was fast taking
such shape as would compel tn*.* nun.,
to meet it with the strong arm of law, if
not with military force.
For a moment Grcnville's faoo was indicative of such intense and passionate
emotion that it very nearly mastered
him, but his eye quailed before Mr. Newton's steady look, and George's attitude
greatly disconcerted him.
Most fortunate for him, Rr.lnh ha ,
drawn Rote's attention to binuu���, an..
���neither remarked his strangee-cUemei.',
but it was a sad confirm ivtion ef tl.o p;ir-
enta' fear for their daughter's future.
Nor conld they fail to notice that while
Dunbar's countenance evinced sorrow
there was no mark of surprise. Lillian's
fears were also awakening, and George's
indignation oould hardly be control] fl.
A sign from his father of warning���almost of entreaty���restoredhis composure
sufficiently to escape Rose's notice assno
suddenly exclaimed:
"Ralph says ho will accept Eustace's
offer of a plowboy's place, only, by the
way, until he sees if our country ahull
need him in a less peaceful field."
"Oh, my ohildren," said Mrs. Newton,
"do not give utternnoe to such a thought.
Wait, hoping that God will restrain the
folly of our misguided brethren and keep
us all in peace. Should our country need
any of yon there will be no withholding
the moat procioua. But tha time is not
yetl"
"No, my dear wife, not yet, but any
week, any hour, the storm may be upon
ns, and it is wise in whatever form it
comes that we are not found unprepared. Still my impression is that we
may manage to bring the farming
scheme into some definite shape. Of
course, Eustace, you and I will enter
more fully into details after I have had
a day or two to think upon it.
"One week will bring everything to a
close here and leave us free to enter upon othor labor; therefore you had bettor
take Lillian and ber mother out to tho
place on Monday and learn if all is in
habitable order and bring back a full
report. Should everything be favorable
you and I will have an agreement drawn
up that will be satisfactory to both,
guarding my pride and your affection
from collision.
"Of course this is but a rough draft
and very crude. Reflection may greatly
modify and perhaps compel us to relinquish it altogether, but as I have roughly sketched it how does the idea of this
'new life' please you all?"
"I would ask nothing better, my husband. If I remember aright, we cannot
fail to moke labor a pleasure in such a
spot."
"I am sure it will not take long to
make my hands acquainted with real la-
Dor," said George, "and I would seriously propose, father, as soon as you can
decide that you allow me to begin the
work preparatory to moving the family."
"Indeed you may, my boy, and I shall
cheerfully find you activo employment
in a few days, for we oan afford no loitering now."
"Well, father, yon may aa well find
work for Alfred and me at the same
time," said Ralph. "We have no intention of being the idle ones, I assure you."
"My son, I cannot yet bring my mind
to allow either of you to leave your studies till your full course is finished."
"Excuse me, father) I cannot oonsent
to that delay. I mean to begin with you
at tho very begiuning, and I believe I
love study sufficiently to promise that
my evenings and leisure hours shall be
employed in continuing the oourse I am
now on."
"I am rare jwn oould, bat I ant very
reluctant."
"That is to aay," said Rose, "seating
herself on a footstool by her father's kuee
and smiling roguishly up into his face,
"our good papa has to battle with his
pride a little on this point also."
"No, no, sister," interrupted Lillian.
"I think it is affection, not pride, that
disturbs our father."
"Well, Lilly, that ia the most respect-
fnl way to state it, and I must own the
most correct one too. But, father, you
will not insist on Ralph's returning to
college when he cannot help knowing
that now, if ever, is the t*no when we
should all co-operate. I know if it wore
me I should study to no purpose."
"Well, dear, we will think of it. Perhaps you and Ralph are right. But I
don't like to think so."
"Yes, father, I am sure they are
right," said quiot, thoughtful Alfred.
"And let me beg you will not separate
mo from this work and insist upon my
remaining in college."
Tho young man had spoken timidly,
but his face was glowing with deep feeling. Ho was at once interrupted by a
simultaneous voic from all. They were
fully united on that subject. Alfred's
education must be finished. Ho listened
with attention and heard each objection
to his wishes, and then all timidity vanished, and one of those changes so peculiar to his face transfigured him. The
earnest, manly .dignity with which he set
aside the objections raised commanded a
respectful attention.
He modestly reminded them he had
heard with great interest, but in silence.
all that had been said of future plans,
because being so young he felt his part
was to work whenever the mode of operations was defined, but he surely had
not deserved to be severed from all he
loved and trained for a different sphere.
With a tinge of Ralph's humor he reminded them that they wero always urging him to be lesB sedentary and live
more in the open air, and now a way
wos open to make that a duty which
they had only set before him for idle
amusement.
How proudly all listened to the young
lad's manly words, and his father could
not but admit that he was really not in
circumstances to carry out their earnest
desires for their youngest without an
outlay that wns scarcely warrantable.
"And in acknowledging this, my children, which I own I do with very great
unwillingness, I show to each of you
that it will take time and very olose

ODDS   AND   ENDS."
A Short Story, by Sloan & Scott.
Duriiig the month of February we are always busy taking stock, and naturally come across a large number of Odds
and End��. Now you know yourself���or at least most people know���that it DOES NOT PAY to carry goods over from
one season to another. You see, those goods that lay on the shelves from year to year, until some of them are almost
old enough to vote, are eating themselves up in interest, and interest is one of those things that increase at a most alarming rate, especially if you are not watching it pretty close.
Now, this is what we are going to do. Commencing Thursday, February 1st, we shall institute an immense Remnant
and Oddment Sale, and shall surprise everybody by the insinuating manner in which we shall throw stuff out over our
counters and tables. You can't but admit that we have given you some big surprises, one way and another, in the past
year.   But THIS TIME we shall cause the most incredulous to exclaim, " Well, I don't see how they can do it."
Remember, this Sale is only for February, and as there are only 24 working days in that month, you will require to
get around about every day while it lasts, so as to reap the full benefit.
