Victoria, Jan 23.���On the Legislature
resuming to-day Mr. Brown, (New Westminster) cuntiuued the debate on the speech
from the throne. He first referred to the
agitation for separation on the Mainland, at
the same time dealing with the official
document entitled "British Columbia de-
famers, and the reply to them," laid on the
members desks the previous evening. He
objected to this as an instance of a government usiug an official document for furtherance of party ends. Proceeding to the subject matter of the Governor's speech, he
found fault with the Governor for having
three rows ou with the Dominion.
As he termed the friendly suits instituted
in ihe courts to determine the important
questions relating to the minerals, govern
rnent lands and fisheries, now pending be
tween the Province and the Dominion. As
to the succession duties, he hoped in imposing them, the act would exempt estates up
to say $10,000.
The Hon. Vernon following, thought it
strange that Mr. Brown should lecture the
Government for raising the Island and
Mainland issue, when the whole burden of
his speech was on that subject. It was apparent from their speeches that Mr. Brown,
and ihise who were with him, were in full
sympathy with the seoe-Bion petition, though
they were careful to deny signing it.
Mi*. Biohu interrupting said the speaker
was mistaken. He had signed the petition
aud had never denied it.
The Chief Commissioner remarked this
was a noteworthy admission, and proceeded
to refute the charges' that had been laid
against the Government in the mismanagement of the finances of the country and in
the method of road extension and improvement.
Figures were freely quoted in proof of the
proposition that British Columbia to-day
stands iu a better position as regards
material progress, together with financial
-strength, than it ever has been before. Railway construction was next
referred to, and the Chief Commissioner
closed with an expression of opinion that
the public would condemn the unfortunate
agitation raised against lhe general inteiest
for the aggrandizement of a few individuals;
and that they would come to the conclusion
that they could not do better than intrust
the government of the Province to those
who had administered it faithfully and well
Mr. Semlin (Yale) was the next speaker.
His address was as usual temperate, and it
closed the debate.
The address was then read for the first
time.
Mr. Beaven wished the second reading to
be taken clause by oiaife, but his motion
was negatived on a division.
The address then passed the second and
i bird mini inns aud was referred to the usual
u'liiiinitiee for presentation to the Lieuieu
ant-Governor.
Lodgers relief bill to exempt goods of a
lodger from distraint for landlords liabiliiy
was read a tecond time, to become commit-
teed to-morrow, no opposition beiug offered.
The standing committees for the session
were named as follows:
Private bills and standing orders���Premier
Davie, Eberts, Smith, Hunter and Martin;
Beaven, Semlin, Kellie and Milne.
Public accounts ��� Martiu, Croft and
Rogers; Beaven and Cotton.
Printing ��� Anderson, Fietoher, Hall,
Brown and McKenzie.
Railways���Bool h, Hunter, Rogers,Eberts,
Stoddart, Adams, Punch, Croft, Home,
Watt, Anderson, Sword, Forster, Brown
and Keith.
This waa the last business of the day.
To morrow Colonel Baker's bimetallism
resolution will be taken up.
A coroners inquest will be held to-morrow
'in the body of Mrs. Muusou, whose husband, k Hudson's Buy Company pioneer,has
long been in the bribit of abu-mg her She
died cm ly this morning, mul marks on the
ni.iy led the police to suspect that the systematic cruelty of her husband might in
S'lino way be the oause.
Geo. L Brown, of Nanaimo, charged with
tending threatening letters to Lord Han-
uingtou to-day, elected for a speedy trial.
Tim hearing of the oaae being set for Monday next.
This memorial, which is addressed to
President Cleveland, starts out by sayiog:
"The Hawaiian people are moved with tht*
deepest concern in view of the delayed and
uncertain condition of affairs in Hawaii, and
also to active hostility that seems to have
been sud lenly developed iu lhe United
S aies against the policy of your excellency
and the American administration concerning our uunappy little country, aud thi. just
restoration of our national monarchy."
It then "reproaches toe newspapers of
Ameiica for their unchivalrous and untruthful ahuse of ou;* qu*-en."
It aBserts 1, tlia through Minister St* veus'
conspiracy, th- Hawaiian ))**-**pie have   been
Ut*|'l'V-.l nf t   e '   |��th   (Oil n/- t*.
2. I'hal the inhabiiauis ol Hawaii are uow
living under an arbitrary rule.
3. Tbat the people have lost all confidence
in the administration of justice, as the
Supreme Court is now filled wuh adventurers.
4. The funds have been squandered for
the maintenance of an unnecessarily large
army composed entirely of aliens.
5. That all the native and foreign royalists
have bi-en disarmed.
li. That foreign clubs and leagues, composed mostly of Germans, Portuguese and
Scandinavians, have beeu called into existence for the support of the revolutionary
government,
7. That these clubs have threatened
murder, violence and depredations against
those not'in sympathy with them.
The u.emoiialista say that though the
principle of monarehial government may be
distasteful to the Radical democracy of
America, it is the Chosen ai.d preferred
form of the Hawaiian people. Therefore,
they say, in conclusion: "We now pray the
God of a common faith that right, justice, and
honor prevailing, Hawaii, our home and
country, be again allowed to enjoy the
blessings of an independent autonomy and
oonstitutioual regime which was so infamously subverted on the 17th day of January last."
This is signed by J. A. Cummings, honorary presideu ; Joseph Nawahi, president,
and seventeen others, including John E.
Bush.

A Plain Statement.
Editor Telkorau:
Sir,���lu consequence of reports having been
circulated iu this city, to the effect that the
printers employed on the Dailv Telegram
are acting contrary to the principles of the
International Typographical Union, which
are likely to injure their reputation in that
union, and among union men generally, we,
the undei signed printers and pressmen,
think fit to make the following statement:
At the time Mr. Gallagher first proposed
to start a paper iu Nanaimo, and when he
engaged the majority of the hands now employed, the Wages paid to pn.itrert in this
city, wc were given to understand, were 45
cents per thousand ems, and the printers
were Minted to 5,000 ems per day, which
amouuud to $13 50 per week.
The scale offered by The Telegram was
.'-17 i cents per thousand, but the men were
to be given union rules as to time, that iB,
not less than aix and a half hours' composition; and all over seven hours to be price
and a half. These rules, together with certain oilier technical specifications, allowed
of an average workman making at least $18
per week���$4.50 more than was then beiug
paid.
As there was uo printers' union at the
time iu Nanaimo, aud the wages offered beiug leas than iu other places iu the Province,
communication was bad with Mr. C. E.
Haukts, District Organizer of the Inter-
national lypo^i uphica. Uuiuu lor this dis
tricl, sta<ing ill- ciicuuiaLaucea and asking
his aUviUi.' l'he following ut'e extracts Irom
his ie( *y :
"li other things are salief .ctoiy, it- would
be well to accept Mr. Gallagher's proposition. I do not think it would have any
material effect ou the scales of other towns,
there being no uuion there. The fact that
they have been paying $13.50 per week has
had no effect ou other towns.
"I believe it is advisable for union men to
secure every outside aituation possible, at as
high wages, of course, aa they can: but a
rate below the established scale should not
deter men from accepting work iu the
country provided they cau make enough to
satisfy themselves. Our members must be
provided for, and at preseut the only outlet
tor (he unemployed is iu the smaller towns,
where they must of necessity accept less
than city rate8.
'Iu case ihe paper is started there, a
chapel Will douhtl" * h" organized in accordance with disu.i. union law, and 1
should like you to con.ult with Mr. Shake-
Bpeare of Victoria .union, supervisor ot
chapels for that district."
Acting upon this advice from tl a author-
lzi'd otlicet* of tlio unii'ii, aa soon us the plant
was ready for slarli* g * *' formed a chapel,
a body subordinate l** tl e Victoria Typographical Union, to ngu ate affairs among
ourselves, and received a further comniuni-
caiiou from Mr. HawkeB, in which he says:
"Outside of the scale of prices, your chapel
has the s- me powers as chapels under the
juiis'l ciiou of Victoria Union, but you are
more independent, and can take independent
action."
All the printers, both compositors and
pressmen, employed in the olliee are union
members.

Sir. ���Will you allow mo to say, through
the medium of The Telegram, that I.do
not think the St. Alban's branch of 0. E.T.S.
has any sympathy with many of the seuti-
mints expressed at laat Sunday evenings'
temperance meeting, reported in your
pages. For myself, 1 will say, that if I
thought such expressions truly represented
our temperance societies, I should withdraw from any connection with them.
Yours faithfully,

JAPANESE   ENTERPRISE.
American Machinery Enable* Tliem to Do
Ilemarkillilii Things.
Japan has recently given a striking
example of what can bo done in the development oi water-power, with the aid
of electricity.    About seven miles from
the City of Kioto is Lake llhvu, having
an area of 500 square miles at an elevation   of   143   feet.    From   the  lake   to
Kioto a navigable canal has been cut
involving two miles of tunnel and a
long aqueduct.   On reaching the city
there is a sharp decline of lis feet.  The
(inference in level is overcome  by inclined plane ways 2,100 feet in length, on
which boats   are   raised  and   lowered
from one canal to the other. These plane-
ways are operated by electric motors,
which are driven by turbins using the
fall  just mentioned.    The  wheels  arc
supplied with water from the high-level
canal    by   three    lines   of   thirty-six-
inch pipe, 1,300  feet in length, delivering the water under a head of 100 feet.
Not only do these water-wheels furnish
power to run the electric generator for
the planeway  motors,  but  they   also
operate another dynamo whose current
is distributed to motors which run rice
mills, spinning mills, a watch factory,
etc., and also drive an arc and incandescent lighting plant.    The whole work
cost about $1,500,000.    It is interesting
to note that while the enterprise was
planned  and executed  by the eminent
Japanese engineer, Tenabe, the water-
wheels are American, the dynamos are
American and the motors and lamps are
American.    Our Japanese  friends have
always shown great partiality for electrical apparatus from tlie United States,
and do not seem to care to buy anywhere else.
FROM   THE   MOON   TO   IOWA.
An Aerolite  Sold to  tlio llrltish Museum
for 80,800.
I believe it is now pretty generally
admitted that aerolites or meteorites
come from volcanoes ou the moon.
One of Lhe most remarkable of these
falls of stones from the upper region of
the air occurred in May, 1870, the stone
falling upon the farm of Mrs. C. 11.
Perry, of Kmmett county, Iowa.
Eftorts were made to have the stone
removed to the museum of Lhe Davenport (la.) Academy of Science, but as
such a proceeding would entail an expense of something like #200 the moss-
backs of that institution let tin: scheme
fall through, the attempt to raise the
money having resulted ill a flat failure.
Finally a Mr. lierge, of Keokuk, made
a trip to Einmett county for tlie purpose of inspecting the curiosity, says
the Philadelphia Press.
After giving it a thorough chemical
examination he came to the conclusion
that it was wholly unlike anything in
the aerolite line that had ever been
attracted to our globe. Hy a line system of chemical tests he found that it
was composed of earth, triolite, iron,
nickel, cobalt, gold, silver, magnesia,
alumina, soda, lithia and potassium.
Berge bought the oddity of .Mrs. Perry
for **J1U0, and gave the tenant of the
farm $o0 more for his "right" and his
help.
It   was   removed  to  Keokuk and exhibited there for some  time.     At  last
the curators  of  the   British   museum,
who had learned of the  odd  combination of minerals in the stone's make-up, ,
sent  an   agent to purchase it.    After j
much   bickering the royal  institution!
gave Mr.  Berge *?0,500 for his ''moon-'
stone."   It weighed 481 pounds.
* Roosting ifirda.
The mechanism of the leg and foot of !
a chicken or other bird that roosts on a I
limb is a marvel of design. It often
seems strange that a bird will sit on a |
roost and sleep all night without falling \
offi, but the explanation is perfectly j
simple. The tendon of the leg of a bird '
that roosts is so arranged that when
the leg is bent at tbe knee the claws
are bound to contract, aud thus hold
with a sort of death grip the limb
round which they are placed. Put a
chicken's feet on your wrist and then
make the bird sit down and you will
have p, practical illustration on your
skin that you will remember for some
time. By this singular arrangement,
seen only in such birds as roost, -they
will rest comfortably and never think
of holding on, for it is impossible for
them to let go till they stand up.

THE SPEECH FROM THE THRONE
AND ITS CRITICS.
It was amusing to read the comments of
the Opposition and so called Independent
press on the speech from the throne, read
by the Lieutenant-Governor at the opening
of the session of the Legislative Assembly
last week. The editors of these prints
seem one and all to have taken Bottom's
declaration aB their motto: "I will roar
you as gently as any sucking dove; I will
roar you an't were any nightingale." This
was the vein in which their comments were
written They commonly roar loud enough;
this time they roared gently as the cooing
of a "sucking dove." It was indeed a re.
markable exhibition. There was nothing
that they could really find fault with; their
remarks showed only au undertone of discontent, an inc'iniition to find fault if the
writers had been able to do bo. Not oeing
able, the hope is gently expressed that the
performance of the se-sion may cijual the
promise of the speech. It must, however,
be admitted that the writers are by no
means confident that it will. The Government are to be congratulated that their programme has been so well received aa it has
by opponents io vigilant and it must be
added bo unscrupulous. But let all whom
it may concern wait till the redistribution
�� bill is brought   down,   and   we   are   much
* deceived if the Opposition and their allies,
the Independents, do not make up by the
loud fury of their clamor for their present
moderation. However there isnouse in anticipating trouble. It will be lime enough to
meet it when it comes. Our present purpose is merely to note the gentle temper
displayed by the opposition press of every
sort, including the organs of the Independents so-called, and to express our thankfulness for small mercies. The din of battle
will begin soon enough, and unless we
greatly err, the signal for it will be the appearance of the redistribution bill, for which
the enemies of the Government of every
name and cluss have bi-rn s ��� very ui.xi. us
for several niro'hsp-isi If the Gp eminent succeed in bringing down a bill whi h
will satisfy both the Opposition and ihe Independents, as they delight to call themselves, then its memheis may hereafter
safely lay claim to the honorable appellation
of tlmumaturgi, or wonder-workers Even
the most obstinate sceptic will then have
reason to admit that the age of miracles is
not past.
THE TELEGRAM A  UNION OFFICE.
An effort has been made by interested
parties (luring the past few weeks to create
an impression amongst union men in this
city that the Tki.khuam is not a union office.
In fact some of our employees have been
openly charged with not adhering to union
principles. We are fully aware of the
source of all these ifforts to injure the progress of Tub TBLKORAM and will deal
with them in due time. In the
meantime the eight union printers employed
in this office have felt it their duty to make
a Btatemcnt injustice to themselves and
Thf. Tklkuram of the exact state of affairs
as between themselves and this company.
As a matter of fact Tiik Tklkuram is the
only newspuper office that has ever been
conducted in this city on strictly union principles. While we do not pay as high a, scale
as that in force in some of the larger cities
of the Province we are piying a scale which
permits our employees to make fair average
wages ���in fact all the business will stand,
anywhere in thia Province. Tiik Tklkuram
scale iB the Bame aB that paid in Winnipeg
which is higher thau the rates paid in any
other part of Canada except Victoria and
VancouYer.
As far as the working rules in force in
the office are concerned we refer the render
to the letter of our employees published in
another column. Ai further explanation
we might say that until THE Tklboram was
about to start the rate paid printers in this
city was $13.60 per week. Then a change
was made to a rate for piece work whioh it
was said would fairly paralyze this paper, a
seeming increase in itself on the old arrangement hut accompanied by such restrictions
that the average man is no better off than
before.
We regret having to take up the time of
our readerB with personal grievances but
this is a matter in which a large   section of
the community is interested and we believe
there is sufficient of the spirit of fairness in
this city and especially in the business community to stand by us under such circumstances.
The Teleckam has given Nanaimo a
splendid advertisement all over this continent, and every day almost we receive com
plimentary letters from parties in different
pirts of the east, asking for copies of this
puper. It may be found on file in every
first-class hotel in this Province and the
east, and is as eagerly looked for by the
travelling public and others as any other
city daily published in the Province
Mr Sandfobd Klemtng, the distinguished oivj] engineer, has returned to Ottawa
from London, where he had bien prosecuting hia Pacific cable project. He Buys thnt
the Australian conference, which is to meet
in Ottawa early in the summer, will cer-
iiiinly take up and consider the Pacific cable
scheme. He thinks that his mission to
Australia, and then to England, will ho the
means of preventing the cable from passing
into the bands of a foreign power.
THE MESSAGE which the London Daily
News, Mr. Gladstone's organ, says has been
sent by Sir Henry Lo -h, the Governor of
Cape Colony, to Lo Bengula, the Matabele
king, in the Queen's name, that if he,surrenders, his life and interests will be assured,
shows lhe merciful disposition of the British
Government. It. is proposed to give Lo
B*Tgula a tract of land south of the Orange
River, and to allow him an income to live
upon. Lo Bengula will be very foolish if
he rejects the offer, It. was not thus that
the Americans dealt with Sitting Bull, the
Sioux Chief, who slew Custer. They drove
him iuto exile in Canada, and when they
permitted him lo return they took the first
opportunity that presented itself to kill him.
Sit'ing Bull may have deserved his fate; he
was undoubtedly a cruel savage; but the
British method of dealing witti the vanquished seems better.
The meeting ot the Legislative Assembly
on Monday afternoon appears to have been
lively. The mutterings of the coming storm
are already heard. Mr. Beaven, the leader
of the old Opposition, co'hfined himself to
criticising the Government's financial policy,
and was replied to hy Mr. Turner, the
Provincial Minister of Finance. Mr. Cotton,
who aspires to lead tho Independent branch
of the Opposition, commenced an attack
upon the Go-ernment on his favorite subject of redisttitiut.ion. The senior member
for Vancouver is only wasting his powder.
He had better wait till the Redistribution
Bill is brought down; then he can go ahead.
At present he can do nothing but repeat the
old complaint, which has been so often
answered, that the bill was not introduced
last ses-ion If ii had the Brown-Cotton faction of the Independents would have found
their occupation gone. They have flourished
for a whole year on the postponement of
the Redistribution Bill alone. What they
will do when the matter is settled we do
not know, except perhaps to clamor that it
ought to have been se tied in some other
way than that in which it will be settled.
The public have not heard lhe last of the
Redistribution Bill, and will not, we think,
for many a long day to come. Mr. Davie
replied to Mr. Cotton, whom he twitted
with the Kamloops fiasco, and the demand
made by Cotton and his friends for
separation nf the Mainland from the Island.
This, however, is only a preliminary skirmish. The real battle will begin when the
Gnvrnment tibles their redistribution bill,
and debate u  on it emmences
insurance:

Ice Made with Oas.
A Canadian living at International
j Bridge, Ontario, makes a remarkable
| announcement; he has discovered n
method of making artificial Ice by the
use of common illuminating gas. After
use the gas may be returned to the
mains, uninjured as far as its illuminating qualities are concerned, not being
deteriorated in the least. Experiments
made at the gas plant at International
Bridge gave a temperature of eighty degrees below zero���this with the use of
gas and water alone���no chemicals of
any kind having been added to the solution.
A Droll Law In Paris.
Paris papers have frequently ridiculed the fact that notaries public are
never seen in a street ear of the gay
capital. Any other lawyer uses these
public conveyances like other mortals,
but a notary never does. Why not?
The rules attached to the license granted to a notary on his appointment eon-
tain the ludicrous rule that the dignity
of notary prohibits the use of any conveyance used by the common plebeian
public. And the liberal administration
of the republic has never yet found time
to abolish the obsolete instruction.

*    FULTON'S   NOT   THE   FIRST.
James Knmsey, of West Virginia, Built a
Steamer In the Tear 1785.
It is not generally known that the
.first steamboat ever built in the United
States was partly constructed in Frederick  county,   Maryland, in the year
1785.   The vessel  was built by James
Rumsey    at   Shepherdstown,   W.   Va.
Robert Fulton, with his Clermont, was
anticipated   by    Rumsey    twenty-two
years.    Ths  steamboat  was  fitted up
with machinery  partly manufactured
at the Catoctin furnace of the Johnson
Brothers, near  Frederick.   The boiler,
two cylinders, pumps, pipes, etc., were
manufactured in Baltimore.   Some portions of the works were  made at the
Antietam iron   works.    On   March  14,
1780, a public experiment, the first ever
undertaken   in   America,  according to
the Frederick News, was made on the
Potomac river.    Rumsey succeeded in
attaining a speed of four miles an hour
against  the current.     The steamboat
was eighty feet long.    It was propel led
by  a  steam engine,   which   worked a
vertical pump in the middle of the  vessel, by which the water  was drawn in
at the  t*.).v and discharged  through a
���horizontal   trunk   at   the   stern.    The
boat  bore  a   load of three  tons.    The
weight of its machinery   was six  hundred anil sixty six  pounds.    The whole
of the machinery, Including the boiler,
occupied a space but a little over four
feet  square.   Two  distinguished men
were patrons to Rumsey's experiment'���
George  Washington   and Gov. Thomas
Johnson, of Maryland.   The experiment
was made in the interest of the proposed   Chesapeake    and    Ohio   canal.
Rumsey    clearly    and    satisfactorily
demonstrated that a boat eould be propelled up stream against the current.
Thus we find that tlie first steamboat
was propelled on the Potomac and a
portion of the first machinery made in
Frederick county one hundred and
seven years ago.
A  YOUNG   MAN'S   CHANCE.
Business Men Never More Willing to Put
Large Trust* Upon Tholr Shoulders.
A mother who now sends out a son
into the business world launches him
at a time when the chances are all in
favor of a young man. Business, men
were never more'willing to put large
trusts upon the shoulders of young
men than they are to-day, says the Ladies' Home Journal. "Young blood,"
as it is called, is the life of the modern
business world, and is everywhere
sought. In New York the demand for
the right kin 1 of voa:i*r men in  all ca
pacities is far greater than the supply,
and what is true of New York is true
of all the large cities. Bear ip mind,
however, I say the right kind of young
men, and by that classification 1 mean
young men who arc willing to work,
and work hard. The day of the young
man who works by the clock, eagerly
watching for the hour when the oflice
shall close, has gone by, even if it ever
existed. Hundreds of young men are
energetic in a new position until its
novelty wears off, and then become
mere machines whose places can be
filled at a clay's notice.
No mother need have undue anxiety
for the success of a son who this autumn
or winter stops out into the business
world, so long as he bears in mind a few
essential points. t
He must be honest above all things,
and allow nothing to convince him that
there is a compromise between honesty
and dishonesty.
He must be an out and out believer in
the homely but forcible saying that a
man cannot drink whisky and be in
business.
He must, too, decide between being a
Society man or a business man; he cannot be both.
lie must make his life outside the office the same as in it, and not be possessed with the prevalent idea that, his
employer has no business to question
his movements, outside of office hours.
An employer has every right to expect
his employes to be respectable at all
times, in the office or out of it.
Drinking from m Lady's Shoe.
In London a century ago it was no
uncommon practice on the part of the
"fast men" to drink bumpers to the
health of a lady out of her shoe. The
earl of Cork, in an amusing paper in the
Connnoisseur, relates an incident of
this kind, and, to carry the compliment
still further, he states that the shoe
was ordered to be dressed and served up
for supper. "The cook set himself seriously to work upon it; he pulled the upper part (which was of fine damask)
into fine shreds, and tossed it up into a
ragout, minced the sole, cut the wooden
heel into thin slices, fried them in batter and placed them round the dish for
garnish. The company testified their
affection for the lady by eating heartily
of this exquisite impromptu." Within
the last score of years, at a dinner of
Irish squires, the health of a beautiful
girl, whose feet were as pretty as her
face, was drank in champagne from one
of her satin shoes, which an admirer of
the lady had contrived to obtain possession of.
Some men marry because they are
young, some because they are old.
| some because they are busy, others because they have nothing to do. There
is but one valid excuse for marrying���
because you want to.

LOCAL  NEWS.
The Doctor Wants Some Law.
One dootor Walkem, who for Uie space of
of thtee thort weeks, waa fcug-igid as reporter on The Teleobam,-yesterday issued
a writ, thuugh the luw fiim of Mclunis &
Molnnis, of this city, fur a balance claimed
to lie clue, amount ing to the sum of S'27.
The writ had soareety been in lhe shenlf's
hands before the enterprising doctor or
some one else, informed as manj people a.9
possible of the fact, and for a time it was
even hinted that this Mtabluhmeot would
be closed up in constqueuce of tb:6 acli"U.
It is true, that like many others, we h��ve
felt tlie strain of the prevailing
I'm ancial depression, and have foUnd
it ui*. essary at times to have to postpone
payments, but in this we have uot beeu
situated differently fiom hundreds of others
as our books will show. However, as iheiu
is a systematic effuri In foic*.- at ihe pteseni
time to injure ihe prospeots **f thia p��pt* ,
we are compelled to make thia BXplanati *n.
As a matter of fact Doctor Walkem's
account with us stands as follows:

The chief scheme in this matter wus to
garnishee uu account due this * dice by the
city, with a view, no doubt, to give the
man er publicity. However, to cur many
friends aud customers we would say that
our business has heen prosperous and profitable from the start. As we said before, we
have not been able to make our collections
in many cases as close aa we would like to,
in couaequerce of which, and starting a new
busiuess 'it..; Thb Tkl,ei;iiam, it has taxed
our renou o  t   preity well  at tunes.    How
ever.ii    *    icspeot   we   have  nol  fared
woise '. many others, and live io the
bnpe that *t,er times are dawuing upon
the buaineat community. What we ask is a
fair field aud equal chances with our neighbors. Tbe doctor made the statement to an
employee, when leaving this office, tbat he
would break the concern up in three
mouths. We sincerely hope his efforts will
not be succeasiul. It is pretty well known
that he haa other associates in the matter.
Going after the doctor, under the ciccum-
stancea, is like shooting at a akuuk over
the back of a jackaes.

A meeting of the Police Commissioners
waa held this afternoon to consider tbe appointment of a conatable. There was ouly
oue name before the commissioners, that of
Mr. Brown, who for some time pa-jt has
been acting iu the capacity of oonstable, aud
he was accordingly appointed to the position. Mayor Quennel ind Magistrate
Planta were present. The commissioners
understood that Sergentt Gibbs wished to
fetire, so that they did not lake him into
consideration for the post.
The Cutch in a Snowstorm.
The steamer Cutch, which made a very
quick pissage from Vancouver to the lighthouse near lhe entrance to Nanaimo harbor,
was delayed for quite a time from the light
to the oity, owing to a heavy snowstorm,
but by the skill and care of Captain Newcombe she arrived in safety. The passengers
were warm in his praise, as bin few men
could have accomplished such a difficult
task as threading the tortuous channel leading to the wharf on such a dark night, amid
a blinding snowstorm, without some accident.

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(By Erie St. C. K. Rcm.)
CHAPTER VIII.
(continued]
"A thousand pardons, my dear Alfred,''
cried Smooth; "urue'y lepique ���ten cards���
game!"
"Game!" said Evelyn, passing a note tn
him. "Before we go on, one qnestiun. This
is Thursday���how much do yuu calculate to
win off mc before Tuesday next?"
"Ce cher, Alfred!" cried Smooth. "He is
BO droll "
"Lzt me see,'' proceeded Kvelyn, writing
in his pec el-book. "Forty games a night
���four nights, minus Sunday���our usu*.
stakes���that would he right, I tliiukl"
"Quite!' returned Smooth, glancing over
the account; "if I win all���which is next to
impossible."
"J*, sh ill he possible to win twice as much,
on one condition," said Evelyn. "Can you
keep a secret?"
"My dear Alfred, I have kept myself!"
returned the Cap ain. "1 never inherited a
farthing���1 never spent hs* than ��4.000 a
year ���and 1 never told a soul how 1 managed
it.,'
"Hark ye, I hen���a word with you," exclaimed Alfred; "it's a n*at*er to me of vast
importance." And the gentlemen continued
to whisper for some time.
At this moment some difference of opinion cans 'd a little comtnolion at the oilier
card-table, aud a number of members wtnt
over to discover the cause, and this was
esteemed by the very old member a very
excellent opportunity for recovering the
8null-ii"x, so he shouted for the thiid time���
"Walter! the snuff-box!"
The waiter having recovered it from
Blount, and placed on lhe table beside the
old gentleman, matters gave promise to go
smoothly for a brief period, when Sir John
Vesey made his appearance. As he approached, Evelyn said (o Captain Dudley
Smooth.
"You understand."
"Perfectly���anything to oblige."
"It is for you to deul," proceeded Evelyn,
cutting the cards.
The waiter approached a member wiih a
note on a silver salver. That gentleman
scribbled a reply and banded it to the man,
who nearly had a collision with Sir Johu
Vesey, who at that moment appeared to be
greatly moved by the sight of his prospective son-in-law.
"There's my preciom son-in-law that is to
be, spending my consequence, aud making a
fool of himself," he murmured, and in his
disgust he took up the snuff box, to the
great, aiiuoyai.ee of I he old gentleman.
"I'm out flat," cried Sir Frederick Blount.
"A pony on the odd twick. Thai's wight,"
he proceeded, counting up his money.
"Well, Sir John," he went on���"you don't
play," and he left the table, another taking
his place.
"Play���no. Confound him. Lost again,"
oried Sir John, watching Evelyn.
"Hang the cards," exclaimed tbe latter,
"double the stakes."
"Anything to oblige," returned Sm.oth.
"Done."
This caused another murmur from the
surrounding groups of members.
"Done," echoed Sir John. "Done, indeed."
"Waiter," shouted the old gentleman,
"the snuff-box."
Games might be lost, and games be won,
but he never altered his demands. The
waiter took it from Sir John, and handed it
to the old gentleman.
"I've won eight points, and the bets,"
said Sir Fiederick. "I never lose���I never
play in the Deadly Smooth set."
As he spoke he took up the snuff-box, to
the unspeakable wrath of the poor old gentleman.
"Lord hive mercy on us," cried Sir Johu,
looking over Smooth's hsnd and fidgeting
backwards and forwards, until he has
walked all round the table.
"Smooth has seven for hiB point! What's
the stakes?"
"Dou't disturb us���I ouly throw out four.
Stakes, Sir Johu? immense!" cried Evelyn.
"Was ever such luck?���not a card for my
point. Do si and back, Sir Johu���I'm getting irritable!"
At this exoh.mation, general attention
was turned to Evelyn. The members
crowded in gicater force than ever around
the players, aud the waiter came forward
with fresh cards. Ouce moie the old gentleman was i'i|iial to the occasion with a
demaud for the snuff box, and it was supplied to bim on the spot.
"I say," said Blouut, advancing, "one
hundred pnttuds on thi next game, Evelyn?"
"Nonsense���nonsense���don't disturb him!"
cried Sir John. "All Ihe lishes come to the
bait! Sharks and minnows all nibbling away
at my son-in-law!"
"One hundred pounds, Blount?" exclaimed
Evelyn. "Ah! tlie finest gentleman iB never
too fine a gentleman to pick up a guinea.
Done!    Treble the stakes, Smooth!"
"I'm on the rack!" cried Sir John, seizing
the snuff-box, and crossing back to Evelyn.
"Be cool, Evelyn! take care, my dear boy!
���now don't ye    now don't!"
"What���what?' shouted Alfred. "You
have four queens���five to the king Confound the cards���a fresh pack."
Aud iu a state of extreme irritation he
threw the cards over his head, where they
fell in a shower over Sir Johu Vesey, and
the old gentleman, whose pet fauey was the
snuff-box.
When new cauls were brought, and order
was again restored, the interest in the play
increased, and the members gathered round
the table in greater numbers.
"I never before saw Evelyn out of temper," mid a geul Ionian. "He must be losing
Immensely." ���
"Yes," oried another, "this is interesting!"
"Interesting!" exclaimed Sir John,
"there's a wretch!"
"Poor fellow!" murmured Blount, "he'll
be ruined in a month!"
"I'm in a cold sweat," said Sir John.
"Smooth is the very devil," drawled a
bystander.
"The devil's a joke to him!" remarked Sir
John.
"Ah!" said Lord Glossmore, slapping Sir
John on the back, "a clever fellow that
Smooth, Sir John eh? ��100 on this game,
Evelyn?"
"Ha!" cried Evelyn, half turning round.
"You! well done, the Constitution! yes,
��100!"
"Waiter!-the snuff-box," the old man
shouted again.
"I think I'll vonture," said Sti.ut, "f 100
ou this game, Evelyn."
"Ha! ha! ha!" laughed Evelyn, quite
turning round. "Enlightenment and tho
Constitution on the same side of the question at last! O Stout, Stout!���greatest
happiness of the greatest number���greatest
number, number one! Done, Stou*!�����200!
���ha! ha! ha! -deal, Stout. Well done,
political economy��� ha! ha! ha!"
"Quite hj.terical��� drivelling!" groaned
Sir John. "Ar'n't you ashamed of yourselves? His own eoti-i **! ���all in a con-
splrACj��� n perfect gin** <-f them."
Aod ihe baronet took snuff with great,
agi'iition, while lhe members who overheard his ioeau ious utterance thought
pr* per to be v. ry indignant, and to express
themselves to that effect.
"Hush, cried Stout to certain members,
"he's tn marry Sir* John's daughter."
"Oh!���excellen*!" i xclaimed one.
'i'Oh, d'lir!��� oh, dear!" muiiLed Sir John
Vesey.
"By heaven, there never was such lock,"
shouted Evelyn. "It's enough to diive a
man wild! This is mere child's pl��y.
Double or quits, Smooth, ou the whole
amount?" "Anything to oblige," murmured
Smooth,
"Oh, Evelyn," cried everybody, "ibis is
madness."
This was the signal for genera] excitement, and lhe attention nf the whole room
was now concentrated upon Evelyn, and
Evelyn's play.
"No mor*;���no more," he cried at last, intensely agitated. "I've done quits enough
f.lossiiinre, Siout, Blouut, I'll pay ynu tomorrow. I���Death I This is ruiuOUS," an I
he seized lhe snuffbox 10 suddenly, ai he
rushed up lhe room, that the old gentleman
rose and glared after him like a maniac.
"Ruinous!" cried Sir John, taking up
Evelyn's last word, "I daresay it is, W'hai
Inis he lost?���what has he Inst, Smooth?
Not much���eb? el,?" and the membi in all
gather* d round to hear what the answer
wou'd be.
"Oh ! a trifle, dear John," returned
Smooth. "Excuse me, we never tell our
winnings. How d'ye do, Fieri?" he con-
liuued, addressing Blount. Then he added
tn Lord Glossmore ��� "By-the by, Charles,
don't you want to sell your house in Gros-
venor Square.    ��12,000 eh?"
"Yes," returned the peer. "And the
furniture at a valuation. About ��3,000
more."
"Um!" murmured Smooth, looking
over his pocket book. "Well, we'll talk
of it."
"12 and 3-��i5,000," exclaimed Sir J**hn.
"What a cold-blooded rascal it is!�����15,000,
Smooth?"
"Oh, the house itself Is a trifle," said
Smooth, "but the establishment���I'm considering whether I have enough to keep it
up, my dear John."
"Waiter, the snuff-box!" cried the old
member, scraping it round with a wry face.
"And it's all gone!" And he gave it to the
waiter to fill.
"And it's all gone!" echoed Sir John,
turning round, but thinking of Evelyn's
money.
"Ha! ha! ha!" Evelyn, starting up and
laughing hysterically. "Not a bit of it.
Smooth, this club is so noisy. Sir Johq,-you
are in the way. Come to my house! come!
Champagne and a broiled bone. Nothing
venture, nothing have! The luck must turn,
and by Jupiter we'll make a night of it!"
explained the reckless dupe of Smooth,
"A night of it!" shouted Sir John, as he
followed Evelyn about. He seized his aim
and then his coat-tail, but at last Evelyn
succeeded in shaking him off.
"For   Heaven's     sake,"   he  continued,
"Evelyn, Evelyn! think what you are about!
think of Georgina's feelings! think of your
poor lost mother! think of the babes unborn!
think of "
"I'll think of nothing!" shouted Evelyn.
"Zounds! you don't know what I have lost,
man; it's all your fault, distracting my attention. Pshaw, pshaw! Out of the way,
do! Come, Smooth. Ha! ha! a night of it,
my  boy���a night of it!"
Aud Smooth and Evelyn hurried out, followed by Sir John Ve.ey, crying���
"You must not! You shall uot, Evelyn.
My dear Evelyn! he's drunk, he's mad! Will
no one Bend for the police?"
There was a general chorus of laughter
among the members as the baronet disappeared, some of them crying, "Poor old
stingy Jack." In the midst of the uproar,
then, the old member was seen rising for the
second time, and in a great rage. So angry
was ho that he could scarcely articulate
"Waiter! the snuff-box!" Th** demand was
received with derisive ci ies, but the waller
calmly and promptly obeyed lhe order, and
(he old man became happy ohco in re.

"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write io the publisher of Tim Dailv
TELEGRAM, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it compare 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 aB 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
mav be learned from Nanaimo."

"Tin* prettiest women in the world
are those of northern Ituly," said a St.
L'ouisian, who has just completed a trip
around the world. ''Pretty is not exactly the word to be used in describing
tliem. A wax doll may bu pretty. The
women of northern Italy areg-loriousl.y.
maddeningly beautiful. They are a
mixture of the French gentry and the
old Italian nobility, and inherit the
vivacity of one country and the voluptuous, half oriental beauty of the
other. If you want to understand
what the poet meant by the 'dark
eyes' splendor' go not to the Vale
of Cashmere, not to Cadiz, but to
Milan. Ureece in her palmiest days
eould not produce such perfect figures,
nor Spain such coquettes. Add to* unrivaled beauty of face and figure the
sWBet cadences of the Italian tongue,
and 1 defy any youngster to get away
from Milan without regret Someone
has said that Italian is the mother
tongue of the Goddess of Love; certainly there is nothing sweeter���it is me'*,
