(Copytinht 1893, by the United Vress.)
London, Feb. 20.���The debate in the
House of Commons to-day or. the Employers' Liability Bill developed no surprise or
disappointments for any except those who
have given undue regard to the statement
which emauattd from the Radical group of
the National Liberal Club. Hail they been
verifitd, it could safely have been predicted
that the Cabinet had resolved upon immediate dissolution of the House; of Commons,
with reform of the House of Lords as the
sole finale of the election. Mr. Gladstone's
well known strong constitutional bias, how-
e vt-r, ought io have kept him from the suspicion of -prilling upon the House amotion
which implied ihe light o ',))�� Commons to
ignore the ameudmeulB of tho.Housu of Lords.
Mr. Gladstone followed the usual proceed-
ure in simply moving that tbe Bill be discharged. Every part of thu House was
packed, aud the space outside was crowded. Although experienced members expected no departure from the regular pro-
ceedure of business the Liberal interest was
stimulated by the hope of an oratorical
deliverance from Mr. Gladstone against the
House of Lords. The effect of his short
restrained speech, therefore, was rather
chilling. Mr, Balfour, on the contrary,
livened up the House, especially when, in
touching the real core of the question, he
accused the Government of using the Bill as
a weapon of attack upon the peers.
T* is evening, the H u;-e * f Commons re-

In Favor oi the Duchess.
London, Feb., 20.���It was decided by
Justice Sterling to-day that the house, No.
3 Carlton House Terrace, in this city, is ihe
property of the DucheBs ot Marlborough,
formerly Mrs. Hamu.ersley of New York.
The Duchess purchased the property with
her own money and sub��* uuently atsignod
it to the Duke. Alter iho letter's death it
was claimed that the property io question
belonged to the Duke's estate, but the court
holds otherwise.
Franco-Russian Treaty in Danger.
Berlin, Feb. 20.���The Frankfort Zeitcntj
is the authority for the statement that
Russia and France have exchanged notes
respect ing the duties imposed on Russian
grain imported into Franoe, "Russia," the
paper says, "while disclaiming any right to
interiere with the internal affairs ot another
power, declared that she most protect
Itutit-ian interests, and if the Fr ion duties
on Russian grain resulted in a derangement
of the Russian export trade, she must and
would notify France of the termination of
the Franco Russian commercial treaty.
France in reply, said that she must respond
to the popular feeling for protection,
but the duties on Russian grain would be
limited to the minimum provided for by the
new tariff." This reply according to the
Zeitung was not satisfactory to Russia, who
replied that "notwithstanding its receipt,
she would oontinue to adhere to her previously adopted attitude on the subject.
More Bomb Business in Paris.
Paris, Feb. 20.���A bomb was exploded
this morning in a small hotel. It was left
in a room whioh two strangers engaged yesterday and who did not return. The landlady discovered the bomb and sent for the
police. In the meantime the landlady and
two ot her ladies entered the room to investigate, when the bomb exploded. The room
in which lhe explosion occurred was completely wrecked and every window of the
house shattered. The two lodgers and landlady were badly injured. News of the outrage
caused great excitement in the vicinity.
There is not the slightest clue to the men
who left the bomb, the excitement this outrage caused was added to by finding a metal
tube supposed to be loaded with dynamite
near the entrance of Foreign Offioe. A
bomb similar to ihe one that exploded in
the hotel on Rue St. Jacques was found in
another small hotel at 47 Faubourg, St.
Martins. It was removed before any damage wns done. It. is believed a plot is being
cut ilea out to causj an .xplosionof holeln
in the different parts of the oity. A close
search of the hotels are being made by the
police.
Latkk.���M. Girard, the chief of tho Municipal Labaratory, made a proposal this
afternoon, that the bomb found by VI.
Dresch be exploded by eleotricity in the
pUoe where it was found, iu order that he
might study Ihe elfeots of the explosion. All
the residents of the house left immediately,
fearing that the experiment might be carried
out while they were in it. M. Lepiue, Prefect of the Police, decliued to assent to the
proposal, until he consulted with M. Ray-
nal, Minister of the Interior. M. Rayual
referred tho proposal to the Cabinet, and a
council was held at the Elysee Palace lo
consider the matter. The result was that
M. Girard was authorized to oarry out the
experiment by placing a dynamite cartridge
on eaoh side of the bomb, aod exploding
them by meaus of an elcciric battery.
When everything was ready for lhe explosion, every window of tne surrounding
homes was packed with spectators. The
police, having driven the people out of the
street in the immediate vicinity, Polioe Pre-
feet Lepine gave the order to torn on the
current and there was a sudden detonation
like the explosion of a cannon. The room
was found completely wrecked, and filled
with the odor of picrio acid. Projectiles,
hobnails aud bits of steel were aoattered all
over. M. Girard says that the bomb was
evidently splendidly made.
Madame Calabresi was injured mortally
by the explosion in her hotel in the Rue de
St. Jacques. She received a terrible wound
in the stomach.
Gladstone on Da Gama.
London, Feb 20.���In the House of Commons to-day, Sir Ellis Ashmead Baitlett,
asked the government whether in view of
the fact that the Brazilian insurgents had
now maintained for five months a successful
blockade of Rio Janeiro, and had occupied
a large portiou of Brazilian territory, the
British government would recognize them as
Belligerents. Mr. Gladstone replied that
there was no evidence that the insurgents
constituted a government of such character
as entitled them to recognition as Belligerents by Great Britain, or that would justify
any other government in giving that recognition.
Da Gama Still Holds Out.
Rio Janeiro, Feb. 20. ��� The United
States cruiser Detroit, which has been
oruising south has returned to Rio Janeiro.
The government is in peaceable possession
of all southern points except D'Eateiro,
where Admiral Mello has appointed a president and two ministers. The Detroit was
unable to find Admiral Mello at each port
she visited. Admiral Da Gama, who is in
command of the insurgent forces here, has
told the representative of the United Press
that he has countermanded the orders he
had placed for supplies in the United
States for the reason that the war
will be ut an end before the orders
could be filled and delivered. The
chur. h leaders, .viio had contracted with
Mie insurgents, should they triumph, for
the restoration of the church privileges that
were abolished upon the establishment of
the republic, and who have supplied the insurgent leader with laige sums in gold, have
notified Admiral Da Gama that the supply
of money furnished by them will cease, unless decisive progress is made.
Admiral Da Gama, who w,<s wounded in
the neck and left arm during the
recent attack on Armacao, expects
that it will be necessary for his
arm to be amputated. His general healih
is good and he will probably survive he
operation. He promised to push the fighting, but he is plainly unable to do so. He
seeks an honorable road to escape from the
consequences of the insurrection, but it is
probable that he will not be able to find
one. Even some of the younger officers
among the insurgents who have hitherto re
fused to listen to anything but warlike proposals, are now anxious for the struggle lo
be brought to an end. The insurgents deny
that there has been any revolt among the
sailors on Eugen Island. They say that the
fighting that gave rise to the report, grew
out of an attack upon the island by Govern
ment troops. ThiB story, however, is not
generally believed. It is thought that there
was a revolt among the insurgents ou the
island.
BY WIRE FROH SAN FRANCISCO.
The Dora Bluhm Reoovered���A Verdict
of Suicide.
San Francisco, Feb. 20.���To-day the tug
Vigilant towed into thiB port the schooner
Dora Bluhm. In November last she went
ashore in tbe vicinity of Topolambpo on the
Mexican coast. She had a cargo of lumber
from Gray's harbor. At first it was thought
Bhe would prove a total loan, but she was
final ed and the Vigilant waa chartered by
the insurance oompany to bring her here.
She will be repaired. Her cargo had an insurance to the amount of $3,000, and on the
hull there was an insurance amounting to
17,800.
The inquest on May Brookyn, actress,
who took her life in bu tragic a manner last
week, was held today. Tim coroner's jury
returned a verdict of suicide. Nothing new
was elicited io evidence.

Important Opinion on Chineae Exclusion.
New    Vork,   Feb.   20.���An   important
opinion on the proviiious ot the law affecting   the   exclusion   ot   Chinese   from this
country was   handed   down   by Judge Laoombe, in   the United  Stales Circuit Court
to-day.    Chung   Kuug Sen arrived al   this
port on a Ward line steamer  from Havana,
Cuba, about a week ago, armed with a passport signed   by the Chinese   consul, saying
that he was a merchant engaged in busiuess
in Hong Kong.    Chung   Rung  Sen alleged
that he was   concerned in a firm at  Somer-
ville, NJ., but an   examination  failed to
disclose the location of the firm or the name
of his partner.    Judge Lacombe says that if
the question presented  waB  simply a determination as to whether  the Chinaman was,
at   the     time   of     his    entry   into   this
country interested in business in Somerville
or not, he would be inclined to sustain   the
decision of  tha  collector   acd keep  Chung
Rung Sen out.    But, he does   not sca from
an examination of the statutes that there is
one requirement that I he Cliiti .mm shall be
actively engaged in bu�� ii**sb in thia country;
or shall have   oapi nl   invested   here.    He
may be a merchant an*! still have nothing to
do, nor ever had   anything   to   do   with   a
mercantile firm hero.    The   statement  that
he is a partner in a business house in Sinner
ville, N. J., is   superfluous.    The essential
requirements o'. the sta ute are that he shall
bo certified as a ine* uh uu. and that the value
of  his   business,    prior   to,   and    at   the
time    of    his    application,      shall      be
stated.    There   is   nothing   in the decision
to divert the fact that he was interested to
the extent of $1,000 in a Hong  Kong "-tore,
or that tlie statement in the certificate that
he was a merchant was untrue.    There two
being    the   only   essentials    require!,   it
makes no difference whether the Chinaman
had $1,000 invested in a firm in this country
or not, for   that   reason   inasmuch   as the
Statute makes the certificate   primary   fact
evidence of the facta set forth   therein, and
the   certificate ia correct in  form   and   haa
been produced to the collector iu the proper
way,and. is not disproved; there ia no reason
why the man should not be allowed to land
The   decision of the   collector ia   therefore
re"eraed.      	
Bhe Died���Be is Charged.
San Francisco, Feb. 20 ���Margaret Bor-
nemann, the woman who waa cut last Friday night by Thomas Bowen died thia afternoon. Bowen has been charged with
murder.      	
A Ponderous Plurality.
Philadelphia, Pa. Feb. 20.���Returns
from 39 counties, including Philadelphia,
ahow a majority for Graw (Republican) for
Congressman at 110.000. Thia will be
largely inoreased by the returns from the
remaining 29 counties. This oity will probably give Graw a 60,000 plurality.
Be Bombed His Brother-in-Law.
Angeles Camv, Cal., Feb. 20.���Deputy
Sheriff B. Decamp last night arrested four
Austrians aud charged them with the
crime i.f blowing up the Austrian ho.rding
house, owned by Magud.yesterday morning.
Their names are, Anton Bacounaoh,
Magud'B brother-in-law, Lizard Tuctip, F.
Banger and John Tarace. Suspicion rests
mainly on Bacounach, who it is said on
several occasions, has threatened to kill the
whole Magud family. It seems the custom
with this class when holding a grudge
agaioat one another, to reaort to giant
powder aB a means of revenge. It is not a
year ago that a house In thtB town, containing eight men, was blown up under the
same circumstances. The escape of Magud
and his family from instant death was due
io the f*ct that their sleeping room was out
of the direct Ire of tlio explosion. Magud
is impioving. The child which waB found
in a barrel of wine in the cellar waa stunned
and will not suffer a serious injury.
Important Judicial Decisions.
Ottawa, Out., Feb. 20.���In the Supreme
Court to-day, Chief Justice Strong delivered
a long and elaborate decision in answer to
the different questions submitted to the
c* urt by the Dominion Government In regard to the Manitoba school question.
There were in all, six questions submitted,
hut they virtually amounted to one and that
was: Whether the Governor-General in
Council, had the power to make declarations, or remedial orders, which are asked
for on certain memorials aud petitions,
assuming the material fact to be as stated
therein, or if the Governor General in Council has any other jurisdiction in the matter.
To all the questions submitted, tha
Chief Justice gave answer in the
negative, which in effect means, that no
appeal lay with the minority to the Governor in Couucil. Justices Fournier and
King answered iu the affirmative all the
questions but the third one, which
asked whether the decision of the judicial
committee of the Privy Council in the case
of one Barn tt vs. the oity of Winnipeg disposed of the application for redress, to
which they replied in the negative. Justices Taschereau and Gwynne agreed with
the Chief Justice on all questions but the
third one, to wnich they replied in the
affirmative.
Evans Senteneed for Life.
Fresno, Cal., Feb. 20 ���Evans was taken
from jail to the Superior Court at 10 o'clook
thia morning. Court announced that the
hour for passing sentence on Evans had
arrived and asked the prisoner if he had
anything to say. His attorney made the
customary moiion for a n**w trial which waa
denied. He then a*-ked that Evans he aent
to S *.* Qiien'in instead of Folsim but the
judge disregarded the request aud sentenced
him to be incarcerated at Fnlsom for life.'
Ev.ns -^ i 11 leave here on the noon train for
Folium under a str* ng guard. There was a
crowd of 2,0tX) people at the depot to see
the bandit depart. Scott refused the offer
of the railroad people to stop the train just
nut of town to take him aboard and putting
Evans in a hack they drove into the depot
to take the noon train. A dozen officers
with shot guns were there ahead to be prepared against any violence for it had been
reported that men from Visalia would join
one another and lynch Evans.
However, this was all talk,
hut there were 2,000 people
frantic to see Evans. At the depot, Scott
opened the hack door and Evans jumped
out smiling. The officers had trouble in
making a path for them to get aboard the
train and the good natured sheriff, still considerate for Evans,11 i. d lo hold an umbrella
over him to protect his head from the rain
which wa9 falling briskly. Bul the umbrella was no go. Scott was glad to get
Evans along in the wet and out ot the wet.
Embarkation was made without accident,
and Evans went away leaving Fresno to re-
laps* into its natural state of peace and
quiet.

"Patti Rosa."
Patti Rosa long since gained the favor,.
good will and affection of that portion of the
theatre going public that looks to the stage
for diversion and entertainment pure and
simple. , She has no superior in the line of
work to which she devotes herself and her
constantly growing success is proof that her
aims have not beeu misdirected. She stands
almost alone in the style ot work in whioh a
former generation were wont lo give their
favor to Litta and Maggie. Mitchell, and she
his won her aucoess by giving the right
direction and impetus to her woik, which
has always been wholesome, clean and
worthy. Her company is an excellent one,
as judged by the names of those
composing it Joe Cawthorn, Bert Coote
and Maurice Darcy are prominent comedy
factors in it, and in conjunction with the
star they offer Borne especially clever work
in the realm of song, dance and specialty;
and others aid in the performances. Patti
Rosa's latest, song, "Shooting Craps" has
nude a deoi led hit and waa whistled on the
atreeta of San Franciaoo the morning after
the firat aang it there recently. "Miss
Dixie" will be played at the Opera House
next Saturday night. It ia the best play
Patti Rosa has ever had. Reserved seats on

NANAIMO, B. C, WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 21, 1894.
MAY BROOKYN.
Ber Stage Career When a School Girl���A
Fair Young Life.
In our despatch columns, will I e seen tbat
a verdict of "suicide" was brought iu at the
coroner's ii quest on the body of May
Brookyn. A history of the fair artiste, who
so lamentably shortened her life, will be of
interest.
The followirg sketch of Miss May Brookyn appeared tome time ago in the Illustrated
American:
When a woman will, she will, men say,
and iu this respect, above all oiheis, Miss
Brookyn ia a woman. To her wilfulness is
due her choice of the theatrical profession,
and to that same good trait we owe her
presence in America.
Born in Cornwall, England, where the
rugged country is bound to aet its mark
upon the people, Miss Brookyn ipent her
childhood in a home where an atmosphere of
culture and comfort softened her naturally
pronouncad and determined character. She
displayed wide observation and icute insight into the whys and wherefores of all
she saw. She was always fond of the
theater, and went to the play whenever an
opportunity offered.
When only a girl of 15 Miss Brookyn was
staying in London with Mra. OdoardoBarri,
wile ot lhe musical composer, her parents
being on the i ontinent. Seeing her enthusiastic over the play, Mrs. Barri laughingly
remarked, 'Why don't you go on the
stage?" The girl began thinking aud shortly
announced her determination to become a
player. Mr. Barri advised the operatic
stage. Opera, however, needed years of
study and waiting, and Miss Brookyn,
anxious to begin at once, obtained a comedy
part at Henderson's theatre, which stood at
Charing Cross. For six months she appeared in comedy and pantomime. At the end
of that time her horrified parents returned
to England and obliged their daughter'to go
back to Cornwall to her books and pinafores.
Those six months, however, had done
their work. At the end of two yeara, sieing
some of her former fellow-actors in a play in
London, the old-time fever returned, and
going honestly to her mother Miaa Brookyn
annonnced her determination to adopt the
stage as a profession. Her family made no
opposition, and the young girl entered a
���took company which supportedstarsin legitimate drama. Her firat part was Jesxica in
"The Merchant of Venice." She played her
part after one rehearsal, and returned home
delighted with heraelf. But in the morning
the papers ignored her, and a friend calling
offered to shape her. "But why?" asked
the girl. "I apoke all my lines," She bad
spoken them, yes, but inaudibly. From
the front she made a pretty picture
with moving lips; the audience imagined
the rest. On reaching the theatre the manager informed her gently that her alternatives were improvement or dismissal.
Then it was that the kindness of actors
to one another was shown in her
behalf. The old man of the company
offered his services aa a coach, and
with hia aid Miaa Brookyn improved
rapidly. But the work waa hard, and
many a time in the gray dawn did she
wander into the dimly-lighted kitchen and
ask advice from the old Scotch cook. No
doubt the sympathy was sweet, but the aid
was slight, the answer being the aame: "I
dinna ken, chiel, I dinnaken; but you're
doing bra'ly."
For five years Miaa Brookyn followed thia
line of work, gaining power with every
play, atudying the artists whom Bhe supported, learning what she could by seeing,
and questioning when she could not under'
stand. She was lucky enough to have
clever friends, men like Barry Sullivan,
Charlea Reade and Henry James, and their
appreciation gave her courage.
Miaa Brookyn'a first departure from the
old school drama was to take tbe part of
Nellie Denver in "The Silver King,* with
Wilson Barrett in the title role. She had
set her heart upon the part, and one morning, in fear and trembling, sought Mr. Bar
rett. He waB amazed at the audacity of
the timid little blonde, but gave her the
part to read on trial. Two speechea settled
the question. She was presented to I he
author and the contra t was signed. But
the matter went no farther than a rehearsal.
Miaa Brookyn heard that some friends were
coming to America; she muat join them.
But contracts are armor-clad, and
a woman's pleadings, touching though
they be, make but small impression on a
manager whose interest it ia to be deaf to
them. A few daya of fretting wrought so
upon Miss Brookyn'a nervous organiam that
a physician's care waa needed, and Mr, Barrett decided that, rather than have an invalid in his company, he would grant the
release from the contract. And so it happened that she joined her friends and came
to America for a brief visit.
Miaa Brookyn became the leading lady of
Richard Mansfield's company, playing Marcelle in "A Parisian Romance." In her next
season ahe was the leading support, of the
elder Salvini, and from that engagement
went to A. M. Palmer, under whose management she has remained ever
since. She created the part of Mra.
Page in "Alabama," and played Mrs.
Ralston in "Jim the Penman." Her triumph in her present part of Mra. Erlynne
in "Lady Windermere's Van," which enables
her to show her control of the emotions and
her fine dramatic sense.

SAMUEL M. ROBINS, Superintendent
TEN   YEARS   IN   BED.
A Spiritualist'*! Hallucination Takes Freak
Hold Arter an Intermlaslon.
One of the queerest women in New
York state is Mrs. Anna liallock, of
Wayne, Schuyler county. She is a
spiritualist, owns one of the finest
farms in the country, is wealthy and
has more than ordinary business abilities and intelligence. She is a sister-
in-law of Colonel Crane, of Hornells-
ville, the well-known politician and
lawyer. Her hallucinations have made
her the talk of the neighborhood. A
little over ten years ago she claimed to
have received a message from the spirit
world, directing her to go to bed and
stay there for ten years. Meanwhile
She was not to allow any water to touch
her body. She went to bed and, the
New York Recorder says, no persuasion
or argument could make her get up.
She would not allow people to wash her
under any circumstances, although she
accepted clean clothing. She was apparently strong and healthy, had splendid color, ate heartily and never complained of being ill.
When clergymen called to urge her
te get np she was deaf to their entreaties, and said the spirit ordered her
to stay in bed for the purification of her
soul. She continued the management
of her farm, kept herself posted on the
market prices of farm products and did
% great deal of writing, but nothing
could persuade her to arise. Recently
the ten-year limit expired and she got
up and dressed herself. She was slightly bent from being in bed so long, but
was seemingly in good health and
spirits. She received another message
from the same spirit. She declares she
was ordered to go back to bed and remain there until her death. She immediately complied. All sorts of arguments are being used to make her get
up, but ahe is steadfast in her refusal,
and says she will stay in bed until she
dies and will not allow herself to be
washed.     	
HE STARED TOO  HARD.
mmt the Old OantUman WU1��_ Ha BsstWt
Bpokan About It.
An elderly man seated in a Sixth ar*-
nue elevated train the other day, when
a pretty young woman entered and took
the vacant seat beside him. She was
followed by a man who took the seat
opposite.
Now, this elderly man, says the New
York Recorder, was reading his paper
when this young wom%n entered, and
he continued to do so, but his attention
was attracted to the man opposite, who
was staring at her as only men can
stare. The young woman seemed annoyed and bit her lip and looked in another direction.
"How insolent of that manl It's a
shame she should be so annoyed,"
thought our friend beside her. At
length the good-hearted old man could
stand it no longer and he exclaimed, indignantly:
"Don't you know any better than to
���tare at a woman in that mannerT"
A peculiar expression came over the
"starers'" face, as he answered: "I don't
know of anyone who has a better right,
sir���ahe ia my wife."
_a Apparent Injmtlsc
Hollie had been to church for the first
time, and on her return home her grandmother asked her whtit she thought ot it.
"I liked it very much," she replied, "but
thare was ana thing I didn't think was
fair."
"What was that, dearr
"Why, one man did all the work, and

THE   WJLSON  TARIFF AND   THE
LUMBER  TRADE.
The lumber trade of the United States,
which the Republican press claims will be
transferred bodily to Canada by the Wilson
tariff, under whioh Canadian lumber will be
admitted to the States free, is a very extensive and, of course, most important industry. It has also been increasing rapidly
during the last decade under the fostering
influences of protec ion, which taxed for the
benefit of tbe lumber men every man who
had even a shanty to build or a board to
buy. In 1880 the number of operatives employed in lumbering in the United States
was 147,956; in 1890 they had increased to
286,197. In California, Washington and
Oregon the number of men who in 1880
found employment at lumbering was
616, and 831 in 1890. The
capital invested in the business in
these States increased from $10,489,043
in the former yem- to 842,821,900 in the
latter, and the afrg-egate value of the products from $8,194,155 to 829,416,506. For
the whole country the value of the annual
product inoreased from $233,268,729 in 1880
to $403,667,675 in 1890. The annual wages
paid to the men employed was of course on
a similar gigantic scale. In California,
Oregon, and Washington, it inoreased from
$1,538,429 in 1880, to $7,715,467 in 1890;
and for the whole country from $31,845,074
in the former year, to $87,784,433 in the
latter.
These figures give some idea of the vast
extent and importance of the lumbering
trade in the United States at large, and in
partioular in that part thereof which is
nearest to us, viz., the States of Washington, Oregon, and Califo*(pia. The opening
of the American market free to lumber cannot but have a most favorable effect on the
lumber trade of British Columbia, which
has been in a depressed condition for a considerable time past. We do not agree with
the Republican press in saying that the
Wilson tariff will transfer thin v st, trade to
Canada. It will ouly * ransfer some of it,
by opening the American lumber market to
Canadian competition. The American lumber men are not going to be crushed in their
own market; they are far too good business
men for that, and will soon adapt themselves to the altered conditions. But they
will have to share the American market with
Canadians, and the American people at large
will reap the benefit in cheaper lumber and
in the conservation of theirforests whioh under
the system that to a great extent shut out
Canadian lumber and unduly stimulated
lojiberiu.j in the United States, were rapidly disappearing. The new system which is
about to be introduced will in fact be found
better, not only for Canadian interests, but
for those of the Americans themselves, although under it American lumbermen may
not grow rich so fast, nor the men employed
in the industry in the States be paid quite
���o high wages as heretofore. This will be
the chief differenoe.
It remains to be seen whether the Amerioan people at large, who will benefit by
cheaper lumber, will continue lo support
the new system, or revert to the old odo by
placing the Republicans again in power
after the next presidential election. Of
oourse the Republican party and their preBS
Will leave no stone unturned to accomplish
this. This too is the secret of the hostility
now being shown by the Republican press
of the United States to Canada. These-
papers want to arouse the jealousy of
American workingmen of every sort against
Canadian competition, and to secure their
votes if they can in favor of their party and
against the Democrats, who by introducing
a lower tariff than the one enacted by the
Republicans have made Canadian competition in the American markets possible. It
is a rhrewd policy and may be successful, if
the American people at large who have felt
the pressure of the McKinley tariff do not
arise and by their votes deolare that it or
one like it shall never again be enacted.
No furthkk outrage by the anarchists is
reported from London since Pourdin succeeded in blowing himself up instead nf the
Royal Observatory at Greenwich.
It is now said that Henry, the bomb
thrower, of the Hotel Terminus oafe, intended to throw his bomb in the theatre
Comedie Francaise; but the house was so
crowded that he could not obtain a seat,and
so had to throw it in the cafe instead. Two
of his victims have died.
Thk friends iu England of the proposal
to lay down a cable across the Pacific,which
shall be entirely under British control, are
actively promoting the scheme, and there is
reason to think that something practical
will soon be done in the mater. Tbe
scheme seems to be quite as popular in
Australia aB it is in Canada.
The official inquiry into the death of
Elizabeth Roberts, of Plumper's Pass, made
by Dr. Walkem, district coroner, was concluded on Monday, when a verdict of death
from natural causes ^was returned by the
jury.. The public analyst testified that he
had not been able to find any traces of
poison in the viscera of the deceased, which
had been submitted to him for examination.
Alcoholic poisoning, the witness said, would
produce the effects met with in the post
mortem.
It appears that next week the Dominion
Cabinet will consider the petitions sent to
the Governor-General, praying for the release of Connolly and Thomas McGreevy,
who are now serving a year's imprisonment
for conspiracy to d> fraud the Government.
The Premier, it is Baid, is prepared to report
to the Governor-General in Council, recommending that a pardon be granted to the
men on the ground that they have already
Buffeted sufficiently to satisfy justice. It
would be better far to let the rascals serve
out their term of imprisonment.
Home Secretary Asquith, it is reported, haB written a letter in which
he declares that the Government will insist
on the House of Lords passing the Employers' Liability Bill in the exact form in
which it was sent up from the Commons.
This is all very well, but how is the Government going to do it! Tall talk is not of
much account in Englond. All the Government can do is to refuse to accept the Peers'
amendments, demaud a dissolution, and go
to the country on the issue. The Conservative party will theu insist on making Home
Rule the chief issue of the elections, and on
making the Employers' Liability Bill and
its amendments a mere secondary issue,
nor can they be prevented from doing this.
It will then be seen whether the country at
large will support Mr. Gladstone's Irish
policy. The decision of the electors, whatever it may be, will settle   the whole busi-

Don't forget the Italian Band dance on
Saturday, the 24th inst! There will be
merry musio and a -general good time.
The Knights of Pythias intend turning

The Wellington Building Society held its

The Wellington United Football team has
-reoeived an invitation from the Captain of

that the boy's will accept.
A movement is on foot to induce Mr.
John Bryden to offer himself as a candidate
for the Provinoial Legislature in the coming
contest. Should Mr. Bryden accept the
nomination it is confidently asserted that he
will be elected by an immense majority.
On Saturday last the Finlanders had a
masquerade dance in their hall. Some
comical and effective dresses were worn.
The dancers unmasked at 11 o'oh.ck, and
dispersed at 12 o'clock. These dances are a
periodical feature of the Finlanders'Temperance Society.

The initials B.C.B.B.A, stand good for
British Columbia Bud and BloBsom Association, with Mr. Cavole as general manager,
and Mr. John Jefferson, musical director.
The foregoing gave an entertainment and
supper in the A.M.E. Church on Monday
eveniug. Miss Mamie Clark, a young lady
of eight summers, sang very sweetly "1
have no mother now," and in response to an
encore, gave "Still I'm weeping." Mr.
John Shalers acquitted himself as Eud man
((or funny man) in good style, leaving the
impression that he has beeu there before.
The supper was pronounced by ihe visitors
to have surpasaed anything in that line in
Wellington before, for whioh all praise is
due to Mesdames Clark aud Harris.
GRAND CONCERT.
A very grand concert indeed, was given
by the loading musical talent in Wellington
at the concert  on   Saturday   evening  last
- whioh was in aid of the Sohool Organ Fund.
The evening was certainly a sooial success
. and will probably prove a financial benefit
to the fund.    There were over thirty num-
' bers in all, and the execution of eaoh,
whether vooal or instrumental, was very
creditable and far above ordinary average
talent. Among the performers were the
following:
Soprani, Mrs. D. Patterson, Mrs. M.
Harris, Miss L. Mathews; Tenori, J. J.
Thomas, A. Sharp; Baritoni, T. R Barber,
J. C. Hughes; Bassi, A. Ruasel, T. Noel;
Instrumentalists, Miss Fisher, Master A.
Hugo, and F. Fisher. Also the Wellington
Male Voice Party, under the leadership of
Prof. T. R. Barber, A. G, Tonio Solfa College, London, England. Accompanist, Mr
Harry Jones; chairman, Mr. A. Sharp.
In view of so muoh talent it seems invidious to particularise, but mention must be
made of the sweet singing of Miss Ti. Mathews who ia the veritable nightingale of Wellington. Mrs. Morgan Harris too, was
quite a vooal star in the midst of a singing
constellation. Little Miss Fisher and the
Masters Fisher and Hugo proved themselves
to be musioal prodigies, snd the native
Male Voioe Party fully sustained its already
. excellent reputation.    Altogether the con
. oert wm a deoided suocess.

Collinson  of   Plumper's  Pass  Unjustly
Aoonsed���Will Carry Stone.
Victoria, Feb. 20.���[Speoial]���Mr. W.
T. Collinson of Plumper's Pass returned
home this morning, well satisfied with the
outcome of the inquest, which cleared him
of all suspicion in connection with the death
of Mrs. Roberts, whom it was believed he
bad poisoned. The highly sensational stories
connected with the death of former members of Collinson's family, and his love for
chemical experiments, were all from Mrs.
Collinson, who now says she cannot prove
anything she charged. On the other
hand Collinson says she is really
not his wife, having married
him, well knowing, but carefully concealing
the fact that she had a husband living. He
will now take aotion to have ' the marriage
set aside and punish his wife, from whom
he has long been separated, for the crime of
bigamy.

Postponed.
Owing to the short notice given and a
number of lodge meetings and other matters
taking place last evening, the meeting
called to organize an association in the interest of the present Provincial Government
with a view to making arrangements for the
coming campaign, was not as largely attended as its promoters desired and it was,
therefore, considered advisable to adjourn
till eight o'clock on Tuesday evening next.
Everyone anxious to see this city properly
represented should attend the meeting on
Tuesday night next.
Another Candidate Mentioned.
Mr. James McGregor, the geuial proprietor of lhe Crescent clothing and furnishing store, it is said will be a candidate for
Nanaimo city in the interest of the present
Provincial Government in the next contest.
The "Cons"  Conquered.
The debate held last night at the meeting
of the Epworth League on, Resolved: "The
punuit. of an object gives more pleasure
than the attainment of it,!'was of a most
interesting nature and the arguments used
by the champions of both sides were remarkably interesting and clever, being
plentifully garnished with trite and witty
remarks. Owing to the gentlemen from
Vancouver not having materialized, the
negative ride of the question was taken
most ably by the Rev. Maitland and
Mr. E. V. Chambers, whilst Messrs.
Proctor and Aitken took the affirmative. At the cloBe of tbe debate
Mr. Hunter summed up the arguments of
both sides in a most masterly style and
eventually decided that the debate was won
by the negative representatives. There was
a large and interested audience to the discussion, all of whom seemed to thoroughly
enjoy the proceedings, and appreciated the
utterances of the different orators. At the
close of the debate, refreshments were
served and the evening developed into a
social. At the close all g**ing home very
pleased with the evening's entertainment.

crept back into the harbor on Saturday
night last. Her owners had supposed her
to be still in the possession of the United
Slates authorities at Alaska. She was
taken in charge by the warship Corwin in
September last for alleged violation of the
modus vivendi. Through tht colonial office,
her owners had demanded $30,000 damages.

School of Penmanship.
The young man with a bad handwriting
who seeks employment among business men
finds there is no demand for his awkward-
ness at any price. Everyone who uses a
pen should write legibly and attractively.
There is no excuse in these days for a jouDg
person to write in a slovenly manner. This
should be left to those of a past generation,
who were educated before the days of business training schools. Here all of ordinary
intelligence and application can acquire a
good business handwriting, the value of
which is not easy to compute.
. The Nanaimo Business College has a
speoial department of penmanship, at the
head of whioh is Mr. J. R. Denneny, who
is acknowledged to be not only one of the
finest penman in the world, but one of the
best teaohers and developers of good penmanship in others.

horse tho men had cheered so heartily,
but they now stood anxiously waiting for
a nearer approach to recognizo the rider.
"It wus hut a moment's suspense before, without checking his headlong
speed, he stripped the rebel coat from his
shoulders, threw it from him anil raising
the cap from his head tossed it high in
the air to fall in the ditch beyond, with
a full, joyous 'Hurrah!' which was answered by the most deafening cheers.
We all recognized that voice. Rosa
sprang forward, crying 'Ralph! Ralph!
my darling brother!' as he dashed into
our midst flung himself from the panting horse and clasped her in his arms."
The letter still, further explained that
on the first night of Ralph's capture
those who had charge of the prisoners encamped in a wood not many miles from
Bull Run, being unable to proceed farther and confident that our army had
been too greatly dispirited to rally sufli-
���iently to regain what they had so needlessly lost. From the first Ralph was
determined to escape before he reached
their prison house. A guard was placed
over him, who abused and insulted him
in the most heartless and unnatural manner. He assumed meanwhile a weary,
dispirited manner, and at last appeared
to sink into the heavy sleep of great ex-
ezhuustion. This after a time relaxed
thMr vigilance, and they yielded to fatigue and whisky, which soon completely
overpowered them.

A guard was placed over Mm.
When all was quiet and deep sleep settled down upon the captors, slowly and
painfully, stiff from many blows ami
bruises, Ralph succeeded in dragging
himself clear of the slumbering guards,
passing one who had thrown cap and
overcoat near where he lay in his drunken stupor. It took but a moment to
disguise himself in a rebel's uniform, and
greatly rejoicing to find a loaded revolver in the pocket silently passed beyond
the guarded tent. Then the rash boy,
remcinberiiig that he had seen a number
of captured horses fastened near by us he
marched to the prison tent nnd sure that
ho recognized Eustace's horse anion**;
them, delayed till he could judge by liif
ear of the petition, then crept skillfully
among the trees to the spot where tliey
were tethered. Prince's lnw, wolcominn
whinny revealed him before Ralph, by
the fitful moonlight, could be sure of
his exact locality. Instantly unfastening the halter he sprang into the saddle,
which remained as the master had fallen
from it, and dashed fearlessly away.
Evidently the sentry was half asleep
or had not distinguished the little noise-
he made from the stamping and restlessness of eo many weary and unfed horses
wound him, but leaving tho swamp
where they were tied and passing, as he
must, the tents a guard sprang forward,
presenting his ni...;ket, and demanded tho
countersign. Not daring to vise his p.'s-
tol lest he should too soon rouse the
slsopers within, the only answer ho returned was a well directed bio'", which
staggered the man, giving Prince froq***

random shots wero fired, hut the good
steed carried the brave boy galbntly,
and ho was soon beyond their pursuit.
Early iu tho morning after t;.*i.*i dark
and perilous ride Ralph onco ventured
to halt at a house by tho wayside and
ask for a piece of bread aud a cup of
milk, which were given him, whether out
of respect for his borrowed uniform or
from a kindly heart ha oould no; judge,
and twice he stopped to give the faithful
Prince a good fet d of grass and draft
of pure water. When at last the camp
with Eustace's regimental colors flying
opened on ! is sight, it waa the happiest
moment of his life.
Twice had Dunbar la the midst of a
furious assault been brought face to face
with Grenville, The firat was but a
passing glance as in the rush of buttle
they swept past each othnr. The lost
was only a few moments bef * ire Eustace's
fall. A rebel aimed full at him while
giving an order, but in a moment a cavalry officer dashed to tho Boluierf side,
threw up his arm by a quick movement
of his sword, as if by accident, and with
a sad look raised his cap to Eustace and
wheeled off in an opposite direction.
That officer waa Jasper Grenville.
Ralph had alao seen him, and burning
with indignation, guided only by the
impulse of the moment, endeavored to
reach him and in that rash attempt waa
surrounded and taken a prisoner.
Mr. Newton and his daughter returned
to the farm, and time sped on, bringing
weekly reports from absent ones and
meting out full measures of quiet enjoyment for those at home, crowning their
toil with great success and more than
the hoped for remuneration. The harvest had been carefully garnered, and
the sales were rapid. The family Were
beginning to look forward to the winter
as a period of less revere toil, bringing
leisuro for much reading, and, of more
value than all else, a reasonable hope
that their childreir might be able to secure a few daya for home, as the slow
and seemingly sluggish efforts of the
rarious corps and divisions to recruit
would indicate there was little expectation of active service during the winter.
One cold and snowy evening the family wero gathered around the cheerful
fire, when without a word of warning
Roso and Ralph Walked in and were
clasped in their parents' arms. Some
minutes of joyful greeting and glad surprise passed before Lillian could gain an
answer to her inquiries after her husband. Then she learned that neither
Eustace nor George could be' spired, as
their regiment was ordered to join the
army at Vicksburg, with 10 days for
preparation. The brothers had urged
Ralph to obtain a short furlough and accompany his sister on this visit, bearing
their loving greetings, while they tarried
behind to expedite arrangements.
A. real home supper was prepared for
the beloved guests, and while seated at
the familiar board all care and anxiety
was dismissed from their minds. If Lillian's heart yearned for her husband's
presence and the parents missed Georgo's
thoughtful attentions, it was carefully
concealed during this meal. Once more
gathered in tho cheerful parlors, questions flowed continually, but not so absorbingly as to prevent tho parents from
giving Rose's looks and words careful
attention. They were soon satisfied that
no corroding sorrow was preying upofc
their.darling's peace. True, she was in
many respects greatly changed. The
strange, sad experience of her hospital
life had given u maturity of thought
and e-pression that was singularly contrasted with her bright, girlish face and
figure. Years of home life could never
have developed the strength and enthusiasm of her character aa th* last two
jnonths had done.
The bond between herself and twin
brother was even stronger than when in
their home life. No shadow of concealment ever came between them, and
without words they seemed to understand each other's hearts instinctively.
When it was time to retire, Rose said:
"Stay a moment longer, please. I have a
few words to say before retiring.
"I know, my dear parents, you have
had much anxiety on my account and
many fears that I might not be able to
rise above the cruel disappointment that
came so suddenly upon me. I do not
pretend that I have not Bufferod very
bitterly. But it was the pain of misplaced confidence, the knowledge that
what I had thought a priceless treasure
waa worse than dross, a thing to loathe
and Bcorn. It takes time to banish regrets for such impoverishment, but the
love so unutterably squandered can
never be renewed. From the hour that
Jasper Grenville joined himself to traitors against his country his power over
me ceased. He is now a prisoner, taken
by a scouting party in the rash attempt
to obtain a clandestine interview with
me. I am thankful that it did not fall
to my brothers to capture him, but it is
well that his efforts against our country
are ended, at least for the present.
"Lillian, my sister, you look at me in
sad surprise that I speak of him so coolly.   You think me hard and unfeeling!"
"Ah, no, Rusio! But I cannot understand how a love so strong as yours waa
can be so totally annihilated, even if the
object prove, as Grenville has, utterly
unworthy."
"Ah, dear sister! If this had been of
the common order of sin or worthless-
ness, there might have lingered some
Bhades of tenderness, but for the eon
who would trample upon his mother,
the traitor who would betray and destroy his country, there can exist no
feeling but entire indifference. Yes���a
stronger one than that���detestation."
I "And what," interrupted Ralph, "do
yon imagine that Grenville hoped to gala
by a disguised entrance into my sister'!
presence? Why, to persuade her to leave
us and allow the first rebel chaplain to
marry them and then convey her to his
southern home! Or, if she thought that
was asking too much, to secure her promise to be his when the south had subdued
us."
"How did yon learn tttUT asked hie
father in amazement.
"When captured, he was marched close
by our camp and urged hiB guard to pro-
cure an interview with our colonel. Etu*
face met him and brought back an earnest petition for ono word with Rose.
Suspecting Grenville imagined our "sad
reverses had somewhat disheartened us,
and that he might also flattA himself
that a Bight of him would revivo her love,
our little heroine consented to go with
Dunbar. It was well that I was off on a
scout. I could not have borne his aa.
suraneo ao quietly aa Roaa and oot Eo*-
toce did."

THE ART OF SHOPPING
The art of shopping is not necessarily to make at all times a good bargain, but to secure a fair equivalent of the money spent, and to be able to do
this with the least expenditure of time and tr uhle.
A    GhOOID   JBM&.TlGrM^TJST
Is distiug ished from a cheap bargain, but in these days of bargains aud b<trgain-days, when from one end of Canada to the other yea, and ihe
United States, too���the newspapers are crying bargains���and we read about bargains in this thing, and bargains in that thing, whon bargains are by
many more to be sought after than wisdum, and when every dealer in the country from the "peanut vendor" to the "merchant prince" call- everything
a bargain���in these days it is not so easy to distinguish a good bargain from the cheap one.
THE   EESTJLT   ���>JLT   SHO^iPIlsTGh
Shouhl be a feeling of satisfaction with the goods purchased.      A sense of having accomplished what you set out to do, and that in a reasonable
and sensible manner.    Not a tired-to-death feeling, and an uncertainty a.s to whether that forty-nine cent article was worth fifty cents after all.
WE   S-AT5T  TIE_:___.T   TDEIB  "WC IMIAJN"
Who desires to make an art of shopping will fasten her faith to the store that proposes to give her always the cash value for her money.     It is for
the trade of all who desire good bargains, as we distinguish them, that we work.

It is reported that Colonel Baker has just
purchased 10 acres in Alberni district in a
spot suitable for the erection of a smelter to
be used in connection with the Golden Eagle
mine.
Whether the pursuit of an object or ita
attainment be the most pleasurable, was
thrashed out last night at the Wallace
street Methodist Church.
There was a small game dinner party at
the Windsor lam night, the participants
being members of a shooting party who recently went out and made a bag.
It is understood that Mr. Saunders of
Victoria has recently bonded a copper mine
in the Alberni district, which haa air ady
had considerable work done on it.
A Bleighing party went out last night and
though travelling through the town was
fraught with difficulty owing to the snow
haviug partially disappeared, on the outskirts the road was as could be desired.
The fines of both colored ladies oharged
in the polioe court yesterday were paid last
night. May joined Alice outside and both
were advised that in view of their future
comfort it would be better to leave the
town, which no doubt they will.
A halibut, weighing 200 lbs or more, was
on exhibition in the fish store of Mr. Marsh
on Commercial street bridge yesterday afternoon. The fish was caught in the Gulf and
with a number of ood, etc., was part of
quite a large catch freshly brought in.
A duck hunting party lately found a pillow thiowu up ou Snake Island, which it is
presumed came from the steamer EsteUe.
Theie was no mark on the pillow or anything to signify to whom it originally belonged, but its being found there indicates
its probable starting point.
A certain resident on the Newcastle
Townsite rushed wildly into town last
night under the impression that the fire bell
was ringing. The uouno was from a gong in
Chinatown which can be heard distinctly at
certain times on the townsite, but its notes
do not rea ch the town proper.
A lover of birds, and seabirdB in particular, iu the person of a prominent citizen of
this town, might have been seen feeding the
gulls from Commercial street bridge yesterday, causing considerable amusement to a
number of email boys, who could not appreciate there being such a virtue us kindness
to dumb creatures.
Patti Rosa, who appears at the Nanaimo
Opera House on Saturday evening next, in
"Miss Dixie," is au Euglish girl, and her
father was one of England's most famous
pantoniimists. It was he who gave Lottie
Collins, of "Ta-ra-ra" fame, her first lessons
in dancing. Patti Rosa's latest song is entitled "Shooting Craps."
The lady manager of Messrs. Sloan &
Scott's millinery department left Victoria
for Sau Francisco yesterday morning, Mrs.
Harder has gone to San Francisco to secure
the latest New York and Paris patterns iu
hats, bonnets and all the incidental novelties
pertaining to millinery. It iB well known

and keeps pace iu the matter of confections
with the leading cities of the world.
Two racial brunettes were brought before
Magistrate Planta yeBterday on the charges
of being an inmate and keeper, respectively,

till next Thursday. May Smith, aB an inmate of aaid house, was lined $10 with costs
beiny unable to pay, she was retained in
oustody. There seems, however, to be a
prospect ol her speedy release.

The Highest Authority in America.
Printers Ink, the highest newspaper au
thority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Telegram:
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It ia 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 iB first-
class, write to the publisher of The Daily
Teleoram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of hia 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 as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
hia paper as free from deadhead or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
mav be learned from Nanaimo."
