DRUGS,   LAW   AND   BREAD
At Cast and Free of Charge, Furnished
by Socialist Establishments.
Paris, Deo. 6.���The latest socialist hobby
has developed iu the hotbed of socialism,
Roubaix. It is the creation of municipal
drug stores, selling at cost; of municipal law
offices, giving legal advice free, aud of municipal bakeries, distributing bread without
charge. Jules Guest, the socialist leader,
claims the credit of this eleemosynary combination, which has been approved by the
Roubaix city council and will be submitted
shortly for the sanction of the Chamber.
Vive La RepubUque.
Paris. Dec, 6.���The most pronounced of
all the papal utterances in favor of the republic are to be found in the allocution
given by Bishop Pierraud, of Autun, just
home from Rome. He says : " I am proud
of the services and glories of France. The
Pope suffers with France's tribulations aod
trembles at her perils. He studies with unceasing solicitude to penetrate all the phenomena of the republic's life. He wishes to
see Fiance unittd under a rule free and
strong, and capable of retakiug her plaoe in
the front rank of the world. Hitherto
France has been occupied in pursuing the
mission of justice aud peace with which
Providence visibly has endowed her. To
obtain most rapidly the desirable fruits of
this illusion, the Pope implores all French
and all good citizens to cease weakening her
powers by internal dissensions ; to discontinue their quarrels on political
of secondary importance, to
their sectional differences and
unitedly for general harmony."

London, Dec. 6.��� Seadook Outram, Mr.
Gladstone's valet aud trusted factotum for
23 years, has vanished mysteriously. He
left Downing street on the evening of
November 30th to meet a young woman
whom he expected to marry suoa. He did
not meet her and he did not return home.

Vibnna, Dec. 6.��� The Fremdenblatt donies

of truth.
The Situation Unsettled.
Berlin, Dec, 6.���The United Press correspondent here has received official assurance aa regards the reports of trouble between Wurtemburg aud the Imperial Government. The manoeuvres which were to be
held iu Wurtemburg were omitted. Should
Geo. Weicker, Wurtemburg a minister of
war, resign, his action would be in no way
connected with anything said or done by
Emperor William, who recently appointed
the general an officer of a royal Prussian
regiment. Herr voo Moser, Wurtemburg's
minister to Prussia, has been on excellent
terms with the Berlin government. His retirement was due to his disagreement with
the premier. From other sources the United
Press correspondent learned that the situation is somewhat unsettled. Premier Mitt-
uach is in great disfavor iu Berlin, and steps
are beiug taken to replace him with Herr
von Moser, who is amenable to Prussian influence.

The King summoned Signor Farini, president of the senate, this evening, aud had a
ioug conference with him
Sanardilli's decision to retire was hasten
ed by Depu y Sonnenos' avowal rliat he
would put new lifo into ihe Centrist op
position. Sonnenos' opposition to San
ardilli arose from his demaud to revive the
com impoit duties, which were abolished
by Magliani. Fears of a popular agitation
impelled Sanardilli not to comply.
A Midnight Scars.
Paris, Dec. 6.���A dynamite cartridge exploded last night in the Place de la Revolution, at Aisle department of guard. The
noise of the explosion was great, and as it

London, Deo. 5.��� The Daily Newt, referring to the stories about the Bank of Eng.
land, says: "The false and exaggerated
gossip about that bauk soon falls away,

estimates do not exceed ��150,000, including
the loss by transactions with the
Murietas ana others, and the amount realizable by the securities pledged being
doubtful." The Newt adds that to appoint
a Government official for ths purpose of
dictating to the directors, thus disencumbering them of responsibility, would be a mistake. "As now constituted," it says,
"tbe bank may be a lumoenug old coach,
but it is eminently safe which is the first
necessity."

San Francisco, Cal., Dec. 6 ���The Examiner's Washington correspondent telegraphs
that he has succeedediu securing some inside
information iu reference to the administration's plans iu dealing with the Hawaiian
question. The purpose of President Cleveland and Secretary Gieaham now is not to
restore the Queen by force, but to lay the
entire quest.uu before Congress, snd seoure
the sanction of that legislative branch before
making any new move on the Islands. Definite instructions have beeo sent to Minister
Willis not to take auy decided action until
further instructions are sent him. It seems
certain that the new instructions have
been sent him to this effect by the Corwin. It is believed uow that tbe President

Pauncefote Doesn't Know.
Wasiiincton, Dec. 6.���The revival of the
rumor to-day that Sir Julian Pauncefote,
Minister to tbe United States from England
was to be transferred to one of the European
courts was the occasion of inquiry at the embassy of this city as to the truth of the
story. The reply to the question was that
Sir Julian knows nothing about it now.
The post assigned to him by the latest
report is that of ambassador to Turkey,
which, by reasuu of the relations between
that country and Egypt and the vast
extent of British interest in tbe latter
is one of the most important on tbe Britiah
list. The position was tilled for many years
by Sir Wm Arthur White and the salary
attached is $40,000. When the rank of Sir
Julian was raised to that of ambassador, it
is understood that his salary was increased
from $40,000 to $50,000 per annum.
Sam No Longer a Regular.
New Fork, Dec. (i.���A speoial from Atlanta, Ga,, says: Rev. Sam P. Junes is no
longer a regular preacher of the Ajethodist
Church. He has been filling an appointment
from the North Georgia Conference, the
duty of which fell on some substitute while
Joues "tu travelling over the country. The
conference, now iu session, is presided over
by Bithop Haygood. He decided that there
was no law uuder which a preacher could
resort to evangelistic work as a specialty,
and that it Mr. Jones wanted an appointment he would have to fill it. The result
was that Mr. Jones decided to sever his relations with the conference, and to resume
his place in some church ss an ex-preacher.
Resolutions of confidence in his Christian
integrity were passed.

NANAIMO, B. C, THURSDAY, DECEMBER 7, 1893.
UNORGANIZED  LABOR IN VICTORIA
A Council Appointed to Meet Tho Gof
vemment In Company With Union
Delegates.
The City Ball at Victoria was crowded on
Tuesday evening, in response to the advertised invitation for a meeting of all nonunion labor for the consideration of the advisability of forming a deputation representing the different branches of trade aud labor
to wait upon the Government for information
in reference to the working of ths bureau of
labor statistics, and councils of conciliation
and arbitration.
Aid. Bragg took the chair.
W. P. Winsby explained that his object
in getting up the meeting was to re-unite
organized and unorganized labor.
Hod. Theodore Davie Ihen took the platform. The Premier said he would refrain
from explaining the bill himself, as Hon.
Col. Baker, who was the author of the
measure, was present and could give a much
better explanation. The Government bad
been criticised in some of the newspapers
for having singled out organized labor to
attend at this conference, and thus ignored
the workingmen who were not organized.
This was a wrong assumption. Tbe intention of the Government waa to have an informal, friendly chat with members of the
working classes. As the men who formed
unions were the easiest to get at, the invitations were first sent out to them, but
the intention was to afterwards confer with
those not represented at the union conference. A letter from W. P. Winsby,
secretary Court Northern L'ght No. 5935
A. 0. F., addressed to the deputy commissioner of labor statistics on the 29th
November was read, asking permission to
be present at the conference, aB a representative of the non-union laboring men who
were members of the A. 0. F.
In answer to this letter, tbe deputy commissioner wrote saying that tbe Government
recogaized that a large portion of working-
men were Dot represented through trades
unions, and the executive expected to meet
that class later to ascertain their views on
the question; but the Government would he
pleased to have a delegate from tbe A. 0. F.
attend.
This letter, said Mr. Davie, was written
four days before the conference, and plainly
stated that it was the intention of the Government to confer later on with those outside the unions. A further communication
from Court Northern Light stated that W.
P. Winsby had beeu appointed a delegate
to represent the A. 0. F. at the conference.
He wished to correct the statement that he
had resisted the admission of reporters, and
quoted the statement made by the representatives of the delegates, that, at bis (Mr.
Davie's) suggestion, the reporters had been
sent for when the meeting expressed a desire
for the attendance of the press. He thought
the public had not lost anything by the lact
that the discussion, or rather the statements
made after the resolutions were presented,
had not been report ed, for these statements
were not such, he thought, as would meet
with general approval. It was declared,
for instance, that it would be a good thing
for the Government to adopt the resolutions, and that, if they were not adopted,
the Government would be turned out. It
did not take the executive long to decide
upon their answer, for they recognized that
ihey were not in office for the benefit of one
class���that they were to employ their energies for the benefit of the masses, and, having this conviction, they were quite prepared to stand by it. In introducing the
bill establishing the Bureau of Labor Statistics aod the Council of Arbitration aod Conciliation, the Government had no political
design whatever, and aimed solely at the
welfare of the workingman.
Hon. Col. Baker gave a comprehensive explanation of the origin of the act under discussion, and of the steps taken since its passage to make its provisions known to those
whom it was intended to serve, and to obtain their views upon it. He deplored the
introduction of politics into the discussion
of the measure, aod said that he was not altogether surprised that no good result had
followed the recent conference when he
found that the chief speaker there was a
leader of the political Opposition iu the
Legislature.
B. H. West expressed satisfaction at the
brief explanations of the act given by the
Premier and Col, Baker. It was not the intention of this meeting to divide the labor
interests, but he and many others like him
who were from force of cireumBtanceB outside the pale of organized labor, believed
that they had just as much right to be
heard.
Col. Baker entered into au explanation of
the manner in which the labor statistics
were to be gathered and the use to be made
of them. As to tbe council of conciliation,
it was intended to have represented in it
every industry in the Province, and with
that end in view he intended at the next
session of the Legislature to introduce an
amendment enlarging the' council to make
this possible. He explained why the act
did not make it compulsory to accept the
result of the arbitrations, but as it would be
next to impossible to compel either workingmen or employers to accept the decision
of a board of arbitrators, it did not seem to
be important what the act provided in that
respect. Uuder the operation of such acts
in England and elsewhere there had been a
diminution of strikes, the worst evil of the
workingman. He suggested that in the
resolution about to be put there could be inserted a clause providing for the co-operation of organized labor as well.
Arthur Duttoo explained the reason why
organized labor demanded that they should
have control of the collection of statistics
in the cities. They wished to send the
figures to Eastern Canada and the United
States, so that people there would be fully
posted as to the state of the labor market
before coming out to settle. He favored the
demaud that no alien labor should be allowed on government works, because no British
subject would be permitted to work on
government contracts in the United States.
He contended that organized labor would
never receive a benefit in this provinoe
that unorganized labor would not share.
He believed that the resolutions of
the union labor conference were right, aud
had in his possession documents which
showed that the unions were going
to stand by them. Temperance meu might
just as well send distillers to Parliament as
workingmen Bead " dudes and doctors aud
lawyers" to make laws for them. The
workingmen had only two representatives in tbe present Legislature ��� Mr.
Keith and Mr. Forater from Nanaimo. The
bill, if not administered by workingmen,
would be of little benefit to them. If the
returns were to be oompiled by representatives of the merchants, what was to prevent
them from fixing them up to sttyt the merchant's interests only. If there was an
honest workingman in charge, he would resign rather than carry out such instructions
should he receive them, and would tell the
public why he resigned.
Mr. West, said that some remarks of the
last speaker seemed to call for correction.
He reminded this meeting that many of the
best friends that labor ever bad, had been
born aristocrats. Workingmen should take
a man as they found bim, and according to
what he endeavored to do for them, instead
of rejecting his assistance because he belonged to any particular class in society.
Hon. Mr. Davie took strong exception to
some of the remarks made by Mr. Dutton.
He had been suprised to hear his language
respecting the members of the legislature,
and the slighting way in which he had
spoken of "dudes, doctors and lawyers."
Aa to the "dudes," whatever they might be,
Mr. Dutton might be right; but as to the
doctors and the lawyers, each of them had
in society a place just as useful as that filled by anyone, and there was not
a workiogman in the audience who would
uot be glad at some time to claim their
services. "Wheu he says," continued Mr.
Davie, "that all the virtue in the world is
monopolized by the workingmen, or that
they or any other class are lhe only honest
men in the place, I say he is a demagogue.
(Applause) He tells you that if a man belonging to any other class were appointed
to compile the returns, he would falsify
them, and he says that if a workingman
were appointed to the office he would resign
the billet if dissatisfied with the instructions
of his chief. I want to know whether
Arthur Dutl on, if he had a Bnug $100 or
$125 a month, would be the first to hand in
his resignation?" Mr. Davie reminded the
meeting that al the opening of the labor
conference the Government stated that it
was the intention to apppoint to the bureau
one man from the ranss of labor and possibly two, but tbey had been met with the
demaud that the whole staff should be confined to that one class.. The Government of
course could not grant any such demand.
They were prepared to give organized labor
fair play, but could not give them everything exclusively.
Mr. Dutton inquired if it was not so that
he had asked for a representative of the unorganized workingmen.
Hon. Col. Baker said: "When Mr.
Dutton came to my office the appointments
were under consideration then���he assured
me. 'You will have no difficulty with
labor; it will be with the employers'. He
was very friendly, and promised that he
would always be glad to help in connection
with the act. I asked him how I could get
at some representative men amongst unorganized labor, and lie said, 'It is no use
trying; you know they won't come.' I see
to-night they will come," Col. Baker proceeded, looking at the great gathering before him. He believed it was at the instigation of Mr Dutton and of Mr. Keith, M.
PP., that the labor union conference had
presented a Bet of resolutions which they
well knew no Government could adopt
The question having been asked from the
audience while Col. Baker was speaking,
"What has the Govornment ever done for
the workiugman?" Hon. Mr. Davie rose to
reply, enumerating a number of measures in
a forcible speech. In this he stated that he
hoped to have au opportunity to satisfy his
hearers as to the poricy aud performances of
the Government.
The chairman then put the resolution
handed to him, which read as follows:
"That in the opinion of this meeting of unorganized labor the act respecting the
Bureau of Labor Statistics nnd Councils of
Conciliation and Arbitration, if carried out
would conduce to the interests of society
generally; therefore be it resolved that a
committee of five workingmen be appointed
to confer with the Government and make
such suggestions as they may deem necev
saiy for the effectual carrying out of the act,
said committee to consist of J. Croker,
plasterer; W. J. Cleave, sealer; W. P.
Winsby, cabinet maker; W. Harris, bricklayer, and W. Turnbull, fireman."
Hod. Mr. Davie suggested that some representative of organized labor should be
added, but Mr. Winsby explained that it
was the intention that the committee named
should confer with the union representatives so as to work in harmony with them.
The chairman then put the resolution
which waB carried on a show of hands.

LEARN HOW TO REST.
Nothing So Becoming to Both Flesh matI
Spirit as Complete Fallowmi,
The art of good looks is a fins art indeed,
and one that deserves the encouragement
It seems to be getting on every side. Even
those "aids to beauty"���in the shape of
lotions, lemon water and skin soaps���so enthusiastically urged upon womankind from
tho back pages of every magazine and
pamphlet in the land, are not to be treated
with topping scorn; they have their place
and use in the general struggle for loveliness. But, continues a writer in Harper's
Bazar, why not back up these efforts for
comeliness by common sense conduct
throughout each day's wear and tear?
To begin with, women sit too much, and
women stand quite too much. Nothing is
so wearisome as "standing about," even to
the well trained body that has been drilled
into good poise, and sitting is not resting,
however cleverly women may delude themselves on this point.
Tbe young girl who desires to keep away
crowsfect nnd that jaded look we all know
so well, snd to retain the suppleness and
Adorable bloom of extreme youth, should
when off parade or off duty, as the case
may be, and in her own room make a couch
or tbe floor her habitual restinR place.
Absolute repose comes to the tired muscles only when the body is in a reclining
position, and absolute repose comes to ths
overstrung nerves only when the muscular
System is perfectly at rest���relaxed.
Thu middle aged woman could, I am positive, woo back much of the freshness and
lithcsonieness of girlhood if she would be
at a little pains to learn how to rest.
Five minutes of rest flat on one's back on
the floor or on a hard, smooth couch are
worth half an hour of so styled "rest" In an
armchair or in that unrepossful tempter,
the rocking chair.
Some one has said to the women of today, "Never stand when you oan sit; never
sit when you can lie down." This exhortation, applied with some elasticity, Is tha
best recipe for beauty I know ot
While I have little sympathy with the
gospel of laziness preached so consistently
by some lives, I do recommend frequent
daily lapses into complete fallowness.
Eleetrloltr For Lead Poisoning.
Professor Semmola of Italy has used ths
electric battery with splendid success in
cases of chronic lead poisoning. Based
npon the well known fact that electricity
promotes assimilation, he used the battery
and found that under the influence of ths
current the lead residue was thrown oft
and passed away with the secretions. ' At
tha end of three months nearly all bis patients could be dismissed as cured.
An Original Remedy.
The idea has been suggested that In certain well known conditions of hysteria a
Judiciously administered pinch of snuff
might have a beneficial effect. Familiar to
���very one is the perverseness with which
anoh hysterical attacks resist ordinary
means of cure, and it is Just possible tbat
the queerer the remedy the more suitable
it may prove.
Dyspeptics Should Try This.
��� grower of pineapples claims valuable
medicinal properties for the juice of that
fruit, confidently asserting tliut it will curs
indigestion, no matter how severe, and has
proven itself to contain wonderful tonic
and restorative qualities for a weak stomach. It relieves and, so to speak, warms
and nurses tbe distressed organ.
PULPIT AND PEW.
The Southern Presbyterian church, with
km than 300,000 members, hue UO inission-
ssies in the field.
San Francisco has a population of 800,-
000 and churcli sittings for 65,000, aud these
are not all occupied.
John Kaufman, a middle aged Amish
preacher residing near Klklmrt, 0.,nrea���"r-
ss while asleep or in a trance.
The Rev. Dr. Edward B. Palmer of Boston has attended every commencement celebration of Barstow college since he graduated from tbat institution in 1858.
Bishop Walker of the Rpiscopal diocese
of North Dakota is a giant in stature, and
many stories are told of his muscular
Christianity. Ha is one of tha eloquent
speakers of the church.

A Monster SundialL
A large promontory in the JEgean sea,
known as Hayon Horoo, extends 8.000
feet above the level of the water. As
the sun swings around the shadow of
this mountain touches one by one a circle of islands separated by regular intervals, which act as hour marks. It is
the largest sundial in the world.���Bt.

WILL ASK ALD.  QUENNELL.
A petition is now in circulation
Aid. Ed. Quennell to consent to be a candidate for the mayoralty. A number of other
names have been suggested, but, bo far as
we have been able to learn, Mr. Quennell is
not likely to have any serious opposition,
should he eonsent to run. Many friends of
ex-Mayor Hilbert have urged that gentleman to accept the nomination, but without
success. A few days ago Mr. Hilbert informed a representative of this paper that
he would not be a candidate this year for
any publio position. This is to be regretted,
as Mr. Hilbert has had a large experience in
municipal matters, which would be of great
benefit to the city at the present time.
Although Aid. Quennell does not desire to
accept the responsibilities of chief magistrate, we understand he is prepared to abide
by the wishes of his friends. As Alderman
he has served the ratepayers faithfully and
well for a long time and deserves the honor
of election by acclamation.
This city requires good men at the head
of its affairs for the next few years. W hile
the former councils have rendered good service and our affairs may now be apparently
all right the ratepayers must not rest on
their oars.
Owing to the late smallpox outbreak and
other important matters, the effects of which
have scarcely yet disappeared, public improvements have not been given that attention which they would no doubt have otherwise received. The incoming council,
therefore, will have to deal with the question of better streets through the central
part of the city and a proper sewerage system. All these matters should be considered by the ratepayers in selecting representatives in the council for next year.
An Untimely Death.
At the City Hospital yesterday morning,
the death occurred of Dr. W. J. Young, from
typhoid fever. The deceased physician first
entered the hospital on Nov. 26th, then
having been fighting against the disease for
a week. Though his oondition seemed to
improve during the first few days, yet he
grew weaker and steadily sank until the
end.
Dr. Young, a member of several orders,
including the AT. and A.M., C.O.O.F.,
I.O.O.F., and K. P., was a native of Seaf orth,
Ontario. He graduated at Queen's College,
Kingston.and after visiting Europe practised
in Wingham, Ont. Then, comiDg to Britiah
Columbia, he located first at Lidncrs' Landing, then going to Comox and Union. Lately he came to Nanaimo, and took charge of
the practice of Dr. Davis, during thelatter's
absence, and while in the discharge of his
professional duties was stricken down at the
early age of 30. He had many friends
here, and will be sincerely mourned.
Last evening Mr. Thos. Comerford received a telegram from Mr. Wm. Young, of
Goderich, Ont., brother of the late Dr.
Young, authorizing him to ship the remains
to Goderich, from which place they will he
taken to the village of Auhurns, the doctor's
old home. Mr. Comerford will accompany
the* body and will start from Nanaimo tomorrow morning.
INSURANCE
Unemployed Hen In San Francisco.
A representative of the Telehram saw
Capt, Blackburn of the 89. MontBerrat yes-
terdiy. The captain said that lie had very
fair weather the whole trip up, which waB
made in ,'IJ days. He saw no other vessels on
his voyage. The Montserrat started loading last night and will probably leave tomorrow.
Capt. Blackburn said that San Francisco
hus a great number of unemployed meu at
present, both in the city and round the
warves. This is nothing unusual there, for
during the winter time numbers of men who
in the summer and the fruit season are
working in the country, gravitate to the
large cities in the fall of the year doing anything they can to pass through the winter
months. The whaling fleet alone leaves
some 1500 men unemployed at the end of the
season.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Interior,the great Presbyterian newspaper published in Chicago, 111., U. S. A.,
aays: "We are not so anxious to annex
Canada aa we are to see some of her good
ideas transplanted to this side of the border.
Throughout the whole extent of her vast
western dominions you will not find an outlaw, or hear of a case of lynching. It is not
because she has to deal with a class of
frontiersmen so different from those of our
own western states, but because she has
Uwb and executes them. You can go nowhere, not even in the fastnesses of the
Rockies or the isolation of the Selkirks,
without finrling the scarlet uniform, of her
mounted police. You feel everywhere the
presence of protecting law. You are made
to realize that you are in a land of order,
and that your person and property are under
the care of the commonwealth, in too
many of our own communities we are fast
relapsing into that barbarism in whioh
private revenge becomes the miserable substitute for public justice, In so far as we
do this we are centuries behind our age."
The November number of the Wes'ern
World contains an ably-written article descriptive of Mr. Acton Burrows' reoent trip
through British Columbia. Special mention
is made of Nanaimo and its industries, particularly the collieries. The following extract from the paper will be interesting to
all those who came in contact with Mr.
Burrows while in Nanaimo: " The editor
desires to take this opportunity of expressing his hearty appreciation of the great courtesy and kindness he received during his
recent visit to British Columbia. On every
hand he was afforded exceptional facilities
for looking into the resources of the Province and forming accurate opinions of its
capabilities. One of the most pleasant portions of the trip waa the visit to Nanaimo,
where, through the kindly offices of Mr.
Robins, superintendent of the New Vancouver Coal Company, he was enabled to make
a most thorough inspection, both above and
below ground, of that enterprising com
psny's property."

THE PROVINCIAL CAPITAL
The    Stroebel   Murder    Case-Trouble
Among Foresters.
Viotobu, Deo. 6.���Spec'a'.���The sensational Stroebel murder trir-l, transferred
from New Westminster, was ��� pened at the
Assizes here ibis m<'riling, and will probably
not be concluded this week. A little
difficulty presented itself when the esse was
called heir, the original indictment having
been list, and this necessitating the calling
of a new grand jury. The evidence against
Stroebel is purely circumstantial, but strong.
The society of the Ancient Foresters is in
a great commotion, owing to the fact that
W. P. Winsby, the secretary of Court
Northern Light recently attended the conference between tbe Government and labor
representatives. One section of the Court
shows this as an interference in politics and
asserts tbat it is liable to cost the Court its
charter; others stand by Winsby, maintaining that the interests of labor, not poliiical
interests, took him to the meeting. The matter will be referred to tbe highest tribunal of
the order.
It's a Tough Road.
Burlington, la., Dec. 6.���Engineers from
this seotion who went to take the places of
the strikers on the Lehigh road, are coming
back. They say they went uoder a promise
of $4.50 a day, hu* they got, only $3.25 for
14 hours' work. Many of them were put to
tiring. They were U.^ed in depots, fed on
poor food Mill given wire oots to sleep on.
They say the rolling stook is in poor condition, there being uoaroely a good engineer
on tbe system. They are willing to work
almost anywhere, 1 hey say, but the Lehigh
Valley was too much for them.
ACHINESE PIRATES
.  Maltreating and Murdering Europeans-
Latest News From Tonquln.
Victobia, Dec. 6.���Latest advices by the
SS. Victoria say that the depredations of the
infamous company of cut  throats known as
the Achinese pirates, who received a partial
check after their attack upon the station of
the Chinese consul at Amry two months or
more ago, have been resumed  upon a more
extensive scale thau Captain Kidd or Black-
beard ever   dreamed   of.    Emboldened   by
their successes   upon ihe   seas, the pirates
are now trying their  hand ashore,   and the
glittering promises of plunder they hold out
Cave   drawn   many  beneath   their banner.
Their organization also has its romantic side
for the leader is an ex-officer of the Siamese
army and his forces have lately been largely
recruited by   Siamese soldiery who,  sworn
to vengeance against  the   French   in   particular, are prepared to butcher  all Europeans   indiscriminately.    Hence   it   is that
all the Tonquin coast, as well as the island
of Sumatra and the shipping frequenting the
contiguous waters, are in a state  of terror
which is daily  intensified   by Ihe apparent
inability of the   Dutch   authorities to deal
with the enemies  of  order.    The  pirates
could   have   been   suppressed   easily had a
firm hand undertaken the work before their
organization gained   sympathy   and   consequent strength.   Now the Dutch have a not
informidable war upon their hands and are
forced  to the issuing  of bulletins warning
those wbo look to them for   protec. ii n  that
they  must   protect   themselves.    Says the
Tonquin Courier: , "All Europeans in Bade
have been notified by the military authorities that exrteme caution'must be exercised
in every direction.     Work   has   been suspended on all roads, bridges,  clearings etc,
as everybody is afraid  of being kidnapped
by the terrible pirates.     These people at .11
in   the   morning   of  October   12th made a
raid   upon   the   Yoshiwara,   a   mile out of
the    oity    of    Bade,     presumably      in
tbe    expectation    of   finding    some   few
Europeans there to be oarried  off, but they
were disappointed.
"The latest news is that the captors of
M. Boyer have put him in the oangue���
a heavy block of wood which is locked
around the neck and sets upon the
shoulders���during the daytime-M. Roby has
been tortured in order to hasten the payment of hia ransom. C. M. Fritz has written
his friends for food as he has beeu given
little or nothing to eat by the pirates."
A later item in the same paper says: "It
is rumored in Haiphong that M. Boyer has
been murdered by his captors. An European
i'ust arrived from Pulangthuong states that
ioyer tried to escape but failed and was
then tortured and hanged by tbe pirates.
Following is a condensed statement of the
latest incidents, taken from the Batavia
Nieuw sblatt.
Another post has been captured by the
Dutch troops: Tuku Utnais has surrendered
a deserter from one of the Dutch warships;
a Chinese fort on the Surratte passage has
been destroyed by artillery fire.
The Tuku Umais allies no longer push the
enemy hard, owing to dissensions about the
distribution of plunder and supplies. A
chief named Tung Chut has fallen out with
his confiderates on this account and it seems
that unless he shares in tbe dollars, thjs
headman will turn upon his friends.
The Chronicle's Comment.
San Francisco, Dec. 6.���In its editorial
oommenton the Hawaiian situation this
morning the Chronicle says: "All that we
can see and judge is that Mr. Willis has
found that he cannot carry out his orders
and is awaiting further instructions. But
it was Mr. Cleveland's duty to have told
Congress as much, and to have communicated ihe nature, if not the text, of his instructions and for his neglect in this regard
he should be called to account.''
McKlnley and Alger Chummy.
New York, Dec. 6.���A Times Cleveland,
Ohio, epecial says: The coincidence of
Governor McKinley and Governor Bussel
A. Alger being here tocether during a good
part of Thanksgiving week and dining and
chumming together much of the time has eel
afloat the rumor that the very interesting
topio under discussion was the presidential
nomination of 1896, and that the governor
and Alger were considering the advisability
of pooling their strength
Wants Arbitration.
New York, Dec. 6.���A cable from Lim
says: The legation of Ecuador, as well a
the consulates of that republic here and at
Callao, have been closed, and the minister
of Ecuador and tbe consul of Lima have
taken refuge on board the British ship Hya-
cinthe. Citizens of Ecuador now in the port
are placed under German protection. Tbe
determination of the frontier of Ecuador and
Peru will be submitted to arbitration,

The Strike Settled.
Bethlehem, Pa., Dec. 6.���The Lehigh
Valley railroad strike has been settled and
correspondence between president Wilbur
and theatate board of arbitration whichaettlsd
the difficulty is published. The state board
of arbitration in communication wiih president Wilbur promised to terminate the
strike at once if the company agreed to take
back ss many of the old men as thsy had
places for without prejudice, ao aa to divide
available tims among those omployed in
such manner as to make them feel they were
in the service of the oompany and self supporting; to make no distinction in future
promotiona between those now employed in
the service and those re-employed, and confirm the rule posted by Voorhees on Aug,
7th last. In his answer Wilbur agrees to
the propositions of the board and promises
to abide by them in case the strike is declared off.
Making Reasonable Progress.
WASHINGTON, Deo. 6.���The annual report
of attorney-general Olney statea with gratification that the Supreme Court ia making
reasonable progress in overcoming the arrears of business. Two cases of the greatest
consequence to the Government have been
decided by the Supreme Court during the
.past year. What ia known aa the Chineae
exoluaion case brought into debate the quei-
tion of the constitutional law. The second
of uo less gravity and far reaching results is
dependent upon its determination. The attorney-general says the comparatively small
number of French solicitation oases disposed
of during the last year is explained by the
failure of Congress to appropriate for the
payments already rendered on   the subject.
Protesting Against Official Frauds.
N��w York, Dec. 6.���A Herald's Montevideo cable says: There was a civic demonstration this afternoon to protest against, the
official frauds at the recent election. While
the government was denounced there were
no disorderly outbreaks.

THE FAU. ASSIZES.
His Lordship   Justice   Crease Criticizes
tne New Criminal Code.
The Assize Court resumtd yesterday
morning at ten o'clock when the Chinaman
Joe Shuck was placed in the box charged
with stealing about seven ounces of gold
dust from one Jim J. May. Ah Fung bunq
called as au intrepreter, after burning the
customary paper, proceeded to question the
prisoner.
The prisoner being arraigned pleaded not
guilty. George Kenney being sworn, said:
Am a miner; live iu the Cassiar district.
Am a justice of the peace. I know the
defendant, saw him working on the Discovery claim belonging to James Jasper
May or the Discovery Company; saw him
about six o'clock ou that day. I own the
Skeena Company claim. Prisoner was
standing in the sluice boxes with a gold pan
in his hand. Auother Chinaman was working with him, but below him; he was sweeping the dust. Saw prisoner look
around the locality towards the
oabins; seeing no person watching
him he drew the pan in his hand, containing
gold dust, around to the right hand pocket
in his overalls and look therefrom a handful of gold dust and placed it in his pocket.
Mr. May) and two other men were Btanding
further down the stream looking into the
box, their heads hent down. I saw Logan,
one of the men, and told him to tell May
Joe Shuck had gold in his pocket, as it was
about time to finish work. May, Logan,
the prisoner, the other Chinaman and I went
down toward the cabin in which the Chinamen lived. I told May the prisoner had the
gold dust in his pocket. 1 detained the
prisoner and asked him for the gold. I told
Logan to empty the Chinaman's pocket into
a pan which another Chinaman had brought.
Logan emptied the pocket; I held the pan.
Not more than ten minutes would elapse
from the time I saw the prisoner take
the gold until we recovered it
When the gold was weighed there was found
to be nearly eight ounces, valued at abont
(125 at the mine. I left them, and told May
and Logan to take charge of the gold. I
recognize some of the pieces produced as
those found upon the prisoner. Logan
- brought the prisoner up to my cabin. I put
him in charge of the prisoner, whom he
locked up for the night in a store-room, it
being Saturday night. Nothing more was
done until Monday morning, when the prisoner was brought before me charged with
stealing the gold, aud I committed him for
trial.
Mr. Barker, counsel for the prisoner, objected to the depositions taken before the
justice of the peace at Tom Creek. The objection was sustained.
To Mr. Barker���One man was working
with the prisoner, but three others were
lower down the creek. May and Logan
were about 25 or 30 feet from the prisoner
Have known the Chinaman for three or four
years. Have heard that the company owed
the prisoner money. Never heard May tell
the prisoner to pay himself out of the gold.
This being all the evidence presented,
counsel addressed the court. The judge
found tbe prisoner guilty of larceny.
The prisoners Robinson, Welch, Bradley
���nd Sweetman tried on Tuesday, were then
charged with stealing twelve coats from the
Pioneer Co-operative Society in Nanaimo.
The prisoners were not represented by
eounsel. Several Indians were examined,
testifying to the prisoners having brought
the coats to their camps for sale. Mr.
Powers, manager of the store, identified
the goods produced as belonging to the
society.
Dr. Stuart Macdonald, being sworn, deposed as follows: Recognize the prisoners;
saw Robinson in my store on Haliburton
street on the 14th day of November. He
handed me a card now produced from an
eastern house. I told him I did not want
anything in his line. I saw the other three
outside. 1 knew Sweetman; he aim into
my store the day before and pocketed a
bottle of jam, which he put back wheu dis
covered. Robinson said he had a dozen
overalls which were left on his hands. He
said he had to go to Vancouver
in the nibrning and offered thorn for
$9 and would take an undershirt and
drawers in trade, which I gave him and
16.80 iu cuah. Sergeant Gibbs came in and
described the man, and I said 1 bought the
pants and handed him the man's card,
gave bim the pants when he sitid they were
stolen. I came to the court house and recognized the whole lot.
Sergeant Gibbs being sworn, said: I arrested the four prisoners. Robinson tirst,, on
the charge of stealing these coats produced,
found in his cabin, also the rubbers in the
cabin where Robinson was eating;. Coat
marked "C" I got from Billy Sim Sim, the
witness. I got the overalls from Mr. Macdonald. When arrested, after caution,
Robinson admitted his guilt, but the other
men made no statement.
The prisoners, being sworn, each with the
exception of Welch, admitted their guilt.
Welch admitted his knowledge of the fact
that the other prisoners were selling the
stolen goods.
Hia Lordship, in passing sentence, ex-
pressed his strong disapproval of the privi
lege given in the new code to prisoners of
being examined under oath. "It is a benefit to innocent parties, but it certainly is
distressing to Bee the name of the Almighty
taken by such hardened criminals as a bait
to oommit the most outrageous perjury."
He paid a high compliment to the energy
and ability of Sergeant Gibbs.
Thomas Gray (Indian) being called, Mr.
Hunter moved for the sentence of the court
for stealing money from O'Dooohue, which,
however, was restored. His Lordship
sentenced the prisoner to nine months at
hard labor.
Joseph Shuck, Chinaman, for stealing
gold from Jim May, was sentenced to two
years in the penitentiary.
Charles Robinson, was sentenced to 18
months' hard labor in the jail here. His
Lordship said, "I believe yoa are the only
one in that orowd who has told the troth in
the box and I shall mark the difference by
the lightness 1 th. sentence." Weloh was
sentenced to three years in the penitentiary
and Sweetman and Bradley eaoh to fire
years in the neaiteotiery.

time had he dallied with love, imagining
himself its victim; but he had ever been
ohary of offering his name to the objeci
of his passion. He now thanked the pru
dent teaching of his father, aud congratulated himself ou his own self-control
that had held him back in the moment
of insanity from profaning that precious
gift which he yet hoped to lay at the feet
of a worthy woman. But if he dreamed
for a moment of abandoning his pursuit
of Laura Kingdon, he quickly cast the
thought aside.
With redoubled ardour he coveted the
girl who could only have become his wife
at cost of grave family dissension. He
felt himself free to possess her, and
liberty gave vitality to passion. And a
fiercer flame was added to the fire that
burned in his heart: he would be revenged upon her falsity, upon the class
of birds of prey which site represented.
Litt���' he recked of the suffering his conduct might coat her. The cruelty of a
jealous passion is almost inhuman. If
his knowledge of the world's sad picture*
ahowed him a vision of wrecked womanhood, lost beauty, broken heart, aud
mind degraded, he closed his eyes against
it callously, and crushed pity with some
���ach judgment as:
"What does it matter? It will be all
tbe same a hundred years hence."
CHAPTER V.
COMPROMISED.
As soon as Willmore was out of hearing, Ralph Kestrel approached Laura,
and asked abruptly:
"Is this true?"
"Is what true?"
"This coming home ot your sister's
bosband?"
"Captain Dundae is on hia way home."
"No humbug?   True for a fact, eh?"
"I believe his vessel will be reported
���My hour. Why do you doubt my sister'.'
It is she, I suppose, "who informed you.
Why do you ask me? How does it con-
ewrn you?"
"Your very good at asking questions,
I_ura; be discreet in answering any
that may be put to yon���for your sister's
sake."
"What do you mean?"
Laura Kingdon asked this question
Impetuously, with a tremor in her voice
and a wild look of apprehension in her
large blue eyes, turned up to him in the
glare of the gasalier.
The other stared at her with drunken
impenetrability, and shook his head
���lowly several times; then, trying to put
her oil the cheek, an attention which sho
evaded, he hiccoughed;
"You'll know all about it, my dee���, in
good time���in good time."
She caught him by the asm m >��
torned away.
"Ralph Kestrel, if you obntemplnto
any wickedness against my sister; if you
have forced yourself upon her again, and
���he has been weak enough to receive
you, in spite of my warning, in spite of
ber solemn promise to me 1 implore you
to desist from this persecution. I warn
you that the time has come when she
will be no longer without a protector,
and your attempts to corrupt her, while
they may ruin all tho happiness of her
life, may bring about your own destruction."
- She stood like a challenging angel before him. She towered up like a prophetess delivering an oracle of doom. Her
small nature became majestic, and, as
she looked him through and through,
the Dutch Courage with which he had
fortified himself deserted him, and he
quailed like a chidden cur.
"Who says I mean wickedness? Who
���ays I've seen her, or know anything
about her? Mind your own, business,
my dear Laura, if you please. Dolly
wrote me t' say confounded husband
coming home���I must keep clear.
Thought it was humbug���put me off
trying to see her. You say it's true;
that's all right. That's all I wanted to
know."
As Laura Kingdon watched the man's
half-closed eyes, and listened to his
shuffling pretences, suspicion of some
imminent danger to her sister through
him rose fiercely in her mind,
"I do not trust you, Ralph Kestrel,'*
���be said scornfully; it is my bitter
sorrow that I first made you acquainted
with Dorothy while her husband was at
aea. I have'learnt some part of the disgraceful proposals you have made to her
in defiance of all the restraints of courtesy, manhood, and honour. I know
that you have visited her again and
again; how often and with what success
you have urged your infamous suit I do
not know, for I fear that Dorothy has
not told me all. But this I Uiiove���for
my sister is not bad; she is only weak,
lamentably weak and foolish���I believe
that she may yet meet her husband
without shame, and rest upon his heart
in the blessed consciousness that she has
not forfeited her right to his devoted
love. If I thought otherwise I would
not implore you, as I do now to abandon
the vile purpose which I know too well
you have entertained. If you have now
or ever had one spark of devotion for
Dorothy, be chivalrous, and blot yourself entirely out of her life. Captain
Dundas is a true and faithful man. His
love for my sister admits no distrust of
her. He would stake his soul upon the
purity of hers.   One little rift  in ths
parthly canopy of his trust and a tempest
would follow thr.t would destroy not
nnlv a happiness which has hitherto
been perfect, but life itself���his life, her
own, and that of the wretch whose
* -unity and brutality came between
them."
Tho girl's vehemence seemed to sober
Fnlph Kestrel. He replied with indignant protests and denials.
"Why, Laura," said he in a reproachful tone and with great seriousness, "I
can't think what has put such fancies
into your head. Dorothy's a very dragon
iif virtue.. I own I was a bit of an ass
with her. but she pretty quickly sent me
SUSPICION.���WHAT   IS    THERE    BETWEEN
YOU AND LAURA KINGDOM?"
to the right-about; and you know,
Laura. I'm sweet on Muriel, and Muriel's
���sweet on me. That's where the love lies.
We shall be man and wife one of these
days, as soon as���(is soon as���certain
things have happen d. A fellow can't
be sweet on two girls at once. I don't
'���are a rap for Dorol hy, upon my honour
I don't, and in proof that ull is over between us I've brought you her letters,
-���illy letters they are. Don't read 'em.
Burn 'em up, burn 'em up."
He produced a little bundle of letters,
and dangled them tantalisingly above
her head. Laura sprung at them with a
cry of joy.
"O, thanks! thanks! A thousand,
thousand thanks!" she exclaimed; "and
what lias passed between us shall be
utterly forgotten."
'���Utterly?"
"Give me the letters.
"There!" He uropped the packet iuto
her bands.
In her delight and emotion Laura
caught his hand as well, and pressed her
soft lips to it, unaware that the library
door had opened; and that Muriel O'Connor. Cecil Chester, and Donovan stood
watching her.
CHAPTER VI.
"MENS SIBI OONSCIA RECTI."
It wm scarcely possible that a girl
caught in so compromising a situation
could avoid some snow of embarrassment
A hot blush sweptover Laura Kingdon's
face as she looked up and saw Muriel
O'Connor and her guest gazing in at her
amazedly.
"She has some shame, at all events,"
muttered Chester to himself. "This is
the old love evidently, and she is 'off'
\iith him for the sake of being 'on' with
.ioor Ernest."
And his deluded friend was hugging
himself with the fond imagination that
tiiis siren, with the Madonna face and
calm gaze of purity itself, had been
hitherto a stranger to passion, and possessed no past which she would wish to
conceal! His immediate surprise gave
v. ay to a cytiici'.l smile, and ; hen his face
hardened into auger as he reflected, and
alized the absurd position of his friend
..itis duped,
Laura noted his thoughts with swift
Instinct, and caught a dark impression
upon Muriel's face which she hail never
seen there before. And beiiitid those two
Bred the malevolent   countenance of
Dennis Donovan, a man of   whom she
ad a rooted dread and abhorrence. But
o(5 strong was she in her own innocence,
so stimulated by tile loving triumph she
-Mid achieved for her sister,  tbat these
sinister looks gave her self-) iossessiou in-
!ead of increasing her embarrassment.
iiie said  calmly to Kestrel,   "Here fs
.,iiss O'Connor," and, turning to Muriel,
made some quiet  remark   about Lord
Willmore having gone to seek her and
his friend in the garden.
Nobody spoke. Ottester, for one, was
astounded at what he took to be her cool
audacity, a conclusive sign to him of a
practiced intrigante. The silence did
uot seem to effeot her in the slight est degree. Announcing her intention of
.ecUing Lord Willmore, she glided out
into the darkness through the siephan-
Otis brandies with perfect grace and dig-
niiied com po. tire.
Then Kestrel approached Muriel, and
began some incoherent explanation
which she cut short by introducing him
to Chester. The latter bowed somewhat
t-tifly, and Donovan drew Kestrel ul once
into a distant corner of the room, where
lie seemed to subject him to a severe examination.
Muriel sank down at the piano, and
jliyed some soft strains, conversing
i trough the music with the golden-
jeardea Chester, who leaned over her
ad watched the while fingers straying
nver the keys. Why did he linger there?
. Zero idle curiosity, he told himself, in-
.lueed him to do so. He could not deny
that there was a fascination about this
woman, a magnetic witchery around
ber, which made his very nerve tingle
with an intoxicated delight; but he
would not admit even to himself that he
v;iB at the very mercy of her enchantment. No, it was curiosity that held
;....i there, the interest of a study of human nature, in which ho niighi compare
: ;e signs, which the science of physiog-
.inny declared Infallible, with the actual
n :!iu*e of thesubjec; under examination,
...s he, in the self suaieieucy of his judg-
���tent, believed it to be.
Her eyes, those 'windows of the soul,"
were undoubtedly irridescent; he saw
tiiem clearly in the light of the candles
yn the sconces of the piano. Yellow
eyes of a deep orange tint, strangely
uecked with blflp. He tried iu vain to
.. Hociace them *,vith some evil character-
. tic, to justify his prejudice against her.
(TO US I'OXTMI'KD)
CHINA PAINTING.
A Short ���esson Illustrated With a Simple
Working Design.
One of the banes of tbe beginner in china
painting is that the painting may become
full of little specks, although there is apparently no dust in the room. The hard
glaze of the china absorbs none of the
paint, and each particle coarser than the
others draws them to it. If fired in this
way, your work Is spoiled.   Learn to work
CDT'WITH VI0LIT DECORATION,
smoothly with the least possible medium
after your paints are prepared, and they
will not "crawl." When they do, dry your
piece in the oven, then with the needle remove the specks and carefully fill up the
white spot with the point of your brush
very lightly and matching the color perfectly-
If your colors remain dull and are liable
to rub off, it must be that on each occasion
the china was uoderfired, and the colors
were not fused into the glaze. If tube colors are too thick, a little lavender oil,
which partakes of the nature of spirits, is
as good as anything for thiuning. Turpentine also answers the purpose, hut has the
disadvantage of drying up too quickly
through rapid evaporation.
Art Amateur, to which the foregoing
practical advice is due, furnishes the dainty
working design here given. A pale tint of
either ivo.'.v yellow, Chinese yellow, yellow
brown or yellow green can be used for the
bat kground. When dry, the spaces for the
flowers can be removed. For tinting the
flowers use violets of gold, carmine and
purple, with bleu riche and occasional
touches of bleu fouie, mixing yellow and
black, atcoi-ding to the depth of tint desired. As all violet tones appear redder
after than before the fire, make necessary
provision for the change by adding blue.
When two firings are proposed, this ad-
dhion is reserved for the second firing.
Pure tints of red and of blue touched in
separately produce" the most vivid of purples. Dull secondary tints are obtained by
mixing violet of iron with blue, but care
should be taken not to mix this red with
the oxides of gold. The inner aud outer
edges of this design can either be filled in
with fluxed gold or a mere line of gold can
be used to separate the ground tint from
a deeper shade of the same. _������

Nothing New.
Mr. S, M, Robins, superintendent of the

Mr. Robins said tbat there was nothing new
aa regarda the Northfield difficulty. The
foundations are being laid at Proteotion
Island for a hauling engine, whioh,
though placed ou the surface, will do tbe
hauling down below. This is a new departure, utilizing the steam with greater effect
than when the engine is below, as considerable power is wasted by the steam losing
heat in having to travel from above ground
