London, Nov. 13.���After the Employers'
Liability Bill had been debated in the House
of Commons for several hoars this evening,
Mr. Gladstone rose just previous to the ad
journment and made a statement concerning
the great miners' strike. The dnration of
this strike, be said, had been watt bed by
the Government as by everybody else wiih
painful anxiety. Matters had now reached
the point at which he thought steps might
be taken by the Government with advantage
to all concerned, He had, therefore, ad
dressed to the employers and miners respeo
tively, a duplicate letter, containing this
passage: "It appears to the Government
that advantages might accrue from the
free discussion of the points at issue
between the parlies under the chairmanship
of a member of the Go vim merit who it
shewed will not be unacceptable to either
side. Lord Boseberry has consented at the
request of his colli agues to undertake the
important duty which the position involves.
It therefore behooves the miners and employers federations to send representatives
to the Conference to be held for that purpose under his chairmanship. It is not
proposed that Lord Boseberry should assume the position of arbitrator or that he
himself vote in the proceedings, but that he
confine his action to offering his good offices
in order lo assist the parties in arriving between themselves at a settlement."
The Sealing Question.
Washington, D.C , Nov. 13.���The President and Stcretary Gresham have within
the past week received several lei tera from
prom nent merchants on the Pacific Coast,
���nuking inquiries as to what action had beeu
taken by ihe Government to tarry out the
provisions of the Paris tribunal in the
Behring Sea case. A representative of the
commercial interest had aa intenitw with
| tbe President and Secretary G ret ham to-
I day, in which he urged immediate action by
I this Government. He stated that the diet
of Bchoouers that infest Behring Sea during
I the scaling season and rendezvoused at Vic-
| toria, B (I., are already preparing for next
season's work and some are aiieady on their
way lo San Fiancuco to lay in their supplies of provisions, ammunition and nets.
The Behring Sea sealing fleet is composed of
about 150 of the finest nchooners afloat, employing from 20 to 50 men each,
and carrying from five to twenty
small boats for scaling purposes. The
amount of money tied up in them is
very large and the uictrtainty as to next
year's operaiions is giving much concern to
those engaged in commercial and marine
business on the Pacific coast. It was represented to the President that as far as known
no action had been taken by this government to obtain the concurrence of other
governments to the Behring Sea agreement,
and without such concurrence Behring Sea
would be thrown open to the vessels of all
nations except the United States and Great
Britain, and the preaervation of seal life
and the United States property interests in
the seals destroyed without, benefit to this
government. It was also pointed out to
tbe President that unless the concurrence of
other nations was obtained, the probabilities
were very strong that the vessels which this
year floated the Stars and Stripes and the
Union Jack, would next year sail under the
flags of Germany, France, Italy or Japan.
The President promised to give tbe subject
his personal attention as soon as other
pressing matters were disposed of.
The Situation in Brazil.
London, Nov. 13.��� Members of the Brazilian legation here have heard nothing from
Bio Janeiro as to President Peixoto's reviving martial law or Admiral Mello's preparing to bombard the oity again. They discredit the current reports on both subjects.
A dispatch from Paris says that the Brazilian Miuister there declined to day to make
any statement as to his latest advices from
Bio Janeiro. A. N. Feitosa, secretary of
the legation ia Paris, said to-day that he
discredited all reports of Admiral Mello's
receiving financial aid from the Count Deu,
Dom Pedro's son-in-law. . "Alt tbe
Orleans princes are skinflints," said
Senor Feitosa, "The Duke de Nemous,
Deu's father, would never advance
his son money with which to attempt the
conquest of Brazil. I am convinced that the
Count has no hope of the restoration of the
Empire." Senor Guonabara, formerly Brazilian Deputy and at the same time editor
of the Journal Do Commercio ia Rio Janeiro
said to tbe United Fress correspondent in
Paiis to-day, "I should not be a bit surprised if Aumiral Mello began the revolution on his own account. He has no support iu the country and has obtained nu
money from persons ia the Republic S noe
he opened hostilities he must have been
supplied with funds from monarchist committees in London and Paris. His go between in such a transaction is Hermano
Rumos, one of his relatives. If any proof
were wanted of Mellos monarchist affiliation
his nomination of Silveira Martins as foreign
minister of the provisional government,
ought to be sufficient. Martins headed the
revolting South Brazils some months sinoe
wiih the express object of res oring the
monachy. "The return to the monarchy is
impossible, however in Brazil. If Mello
should take Rio Janerio, and try to restore
the old Imperial Family all the richest provinces would deolare themselves indepeud-
ant states under the Republic forms of
Government. The rioh provinces have
prospered greatly under the Republic. The
restoration of the monarchy wonld mean a
decline of their prosperity and they would
refuse to make the sacrifice".
Policy of the Admiralty to be Adhered to
London. Nov. 13.���The Associated Chambers of Commerce recently addressed a
memorial to the Admiral urging the Govern.
ment to put the navy in a thoroughly efficient state to meet the demands of possible
war. Earl Spencer first Lord of the Admiralty in his response to the memorial says
that the fundamental policy of the admiralty
will be strictly followed out, but that if the
Associated Chambers of Commerce Jewish to
point out special dangers which the mercantile marine will incur iu time of war, their
communications will receive careful consideration.
A Big Scheme.
Liverpool, Nov. 13.���Mr. James Kisr
Hady, socialist member of the House of
Commons for the south division of West-
ham, addressed a meeting of Socialists at
Liverpool to-day. In the course of his
speech, he announced that he would shortly
introduce in Parliament a bill providing for
tha nationalization of mines. Fifty millions of pounds, he said would represent ths
capitalized value of the coal pits in Great
Britain. The state could raise a loan of
this amount at 2J per cent, and take over
tbe mines.   	
Woman WiU Vote.
London, Nov. 13.���Mr. Gladstone writes
to the Woman's Emancipated Union that a
clause will be introduced in the Parish
Councils Bill giving the right to women to
vote for and be parish councillors.
Has removed from the old place to the
new stand, near the Nanaimo Opera House.

Baron Penedo on Admiral MeUo.
Paris, Nov. 13.���The representative in
this city of the United Press to-day had an
interview with Baron Penedo, who was
Brazillian Minister to the United States for
several years during the regime of the Emperor 1),im Pedro. Baron Penedo disclaimed all knowledge of the movements or policy
of Admiral Mello, who is in command of the
rebel Bruzillitn fleet and said that he bad no
information as to tbe truth or falsity of the
reports that the object of the rebellion was
to restore the monarchy ia Brazil. He
added that tho rebellion was no child's play,
on the contrary, it was a serious
movement. It was difficult to forsee
what the issue would be. Admiral Mello appeared to possess tbesinews of war, although
Baron Penedo deolared that he could not
say where be obtained them. Unlike President Peixoto, the insurgents have no state
treasury at their disposal, yet they are
spending large sums of money. Baron Penedo'further said that he knew Admiral
Mello and considered him strong intelecual-
ly and tenacious of purpose. He is a good
man, the Baron concluded and he knows
just exactly what he is doing. He is not
the sort of a man to embark upon a chimerical enterprise.
Examination of Admiral Skerett.
Washington, D. C. Nov. 13���With the
arrival in San Francisco, this morning from
Honolulu of Commodore and Acting Rear
Admiral Skerett, recently transferred from
command of the U. S. Naval force in Hawaiia waters, to the command of the Asiatic
Naval station, a board consisting of the
three highest officers available. Rear Admirals Gherardi, Greer and Brown, met at
the Navy Department for the purpose of
determining the mental and moral fitness of
Admiral Skerrett, for promotion to the
Actual Rank of Rear Admiral. A board of
medical officers will also meet in San Francisco and conduct the physical examination
The Gherardi board will conduct its branch
of the examination on ihe record of Admiral
Skerrett on file at the Navy Department.
After ihe physical examination in Sin
Francisco lias been finished Admiral Skerett will sail for Yokohama to assume charge
of the Asiatic station.
Preparing to Secure the Fight.
Indiai'OMs, Ind., Nov. 13.���The heroio
effortB made by the Roby Columbian Athletic Club officials to incorporate under the
state laws, has downed upon the state
othciils us a shrewd move by which the
Corbett-Mitchell mill can be secured ia case
the complications issue that seem bound to
prevent 'he light recurring in the east or
south. The articles of incorporation are
adroitly worded, and provide that the incorporators may turn the management of
the club over to an agent for any length of
lime not exceeding six months. The attorney-general has decided that no law
exists which can prevent the club from incorporating, but the state officials firmly
bolieve that hidden back by this provsion, is
a determination to secure the big fight.
Should such be the case the government
may attempt to stop it in proceedings. Two
of the incorporators telegraphed the state
secretary from Chicago that while they did
not wish to be put down as interested in
the afT.iir, the stability of the organization
would not be affected thereby.
Wants to Join Canada.
St. Johns, Newfoundland, Nov. 13.���All
the election returns in Twillingste, St.
George's and St. Barbes, were received today. Twilligate elected 3 members, returning one Government and two Opposition.
Lesser, one of those, received three votes
above the Government candidate. St.
Barbes and St. Georg's were each won by
tbe Government. The next Legislature will
consist of twenty-four Government and
twelve Opposition supporters as four of the
Government members will requro re-election
on their acceptance of the offices and emoluments. The Opposition will oontest these
teats and hope to win two of them. The
belief is general here now that the Govern
ment will introduce resolutions next sess on
favorable to confederation with Canada,
The Government supporters are largely in
favor of such resolutions and they are likely
to pass. If ths question were submitted to
the people for deoition at the polls it is
doubtful if it would receive endorsement.
|    Something Would Be Heard to Drop.
San Francisco, C*I.,  Nov.   13.���Several
passengers of ihe China just arrived,   when
intcrvieued said that the Queen   could  not
be  restored to the  throne  without serious
trouble    and    that   now     that    the    provisional government   was well   established
and   bad   well   drilled   troops,    a   change
could   not   be 'made   without    bloodshed.
Secretary   Gresham's   communication   will
, prove a bombshell in Hawaii t,    Tne papers
\ which support  the Provisional Government
| assert  that iu order to take  a  vote on the
! question of annexation or restoration of the
i Queen, the United States would have to use
foice.    In  reply to this  the Bulletin says:
There is no pirticular necessily,  however,
; for any dictation  or "foro  bill"  business
1 about it.    The United Slates will doubtless
; in the most   suave   language cf diplomacy
I suggest   that the Provisional  Government
| take   means   to    ascertain   if  it   is   duly
authorized by the people  of these islands to
triiisfer their title aud   should  the provisional government   be   silly   enough   not to
take the gentle pointer there would then be
something    heard   to   drop   which    would
create    the   greatest   sound    ever   known
to enter the ears of the Provisional  Government as a Provis.onal Government   or   any
other   kind   of   a   Government.      At   tbe
Hawaiian Consulate  in   this   city no news
was received by the steamship China further
than that contained in the United Press advices.    Consul Wilder said   to-day   that he
had no official communications by the China's
mail and his   personal   correspondence   left
him as much in the dark as any   one else retarding the course of events on  the Islands.
WU1 Change Their Tune.
Washington, D.C., Nov. 13.���A gentleman entitled to speak ex cathedra for the
administration on the Hawaiian situation,
told a United Press reporter today that
when all the facts in connection with the
policy outlined in Secretary Gresham's
letter were made public there would be a
revulsion of the present unpopular criticism
of the administration's course, and that
many of those who are now engaged in
making bitter commrnts on the President's
intention would be obliged to admit that
the restoration of Queen Liluckanlani is
necessary to satisfy the demands of right
and justice. "I do not know positively,"
said this gentleman, "whether or not it is
the intention to make public Blount's report, but if that be done, I can aeeure you
I hat the people will see the wisdom
and foresight of Mr. Cleveland and Secretary Gresham iu doing as they have done.
These criticisms that we see in the newspapers were expected. They are based
simply on what tne Secretary of Slate said
in his note to the President, without knowledge of the facts by which Mr. Gresham was
guided in giving his views. He considered
the whole rnatler carefully, judiciously and
dispassionately, and he was forced to tbe
one and only conclusion that a wrong had
been done in displacing Queen Lilioukalani
and that it should be righted.
WIU Retain His Place.
Londo ���, Nov 13,���In tbe House of Commons to-day' Sir Charles Russell, the Attorney-General, stated in reply to a question that the Duke of Edinburgh, who is
now the reigning Duke of Saxe-Coburg and
Gotha, and who, prior to his accession, was
an Admiral of the fleet of the British Navy,
is not now entitled to perform active service
in the British Navy, therefore he received
no pay. He had made no claim for pay.
Mr. Gladstone added that the Duke would
be allowed to retain his place on the Navy
list without pay as a mark of honor for his
long and distinguished services. His heart,
Mr. Gladstone further said, had always
been in his profession and it would be a
matter of great pain if any change should
occur that would in anywise mar his relations with Great Britain.
WIU Increase the Price of Coal.
Philadelphia, Pa.,Nov. 13.���The Financial News Agency reports: "Agent Lenmn,
who seems to have good information on
Reading Railway affairs says the Vander-
bilts have oontiol of reading and are only
awaiting >n opportunity to accumulate sufficient stick to enable them to take possession of all its lines. It is believed Vander-
bilts will control 54 per cent, of Anthracite
output and that the next two years will
show a very material advance in the price of
coal. The same agency also says considerable comment has been cauBed here by the
organization of the Anthracite Coal opirat-
ois, who control an output tf nearly II,-
500,009 tons. It is said that the primary
oljoct ot the association is to regulate production. The associaiion will have close
relations wiih the lending coal companies
and will be conducted in harmony therewith." 	
The Remains of Two Explorers.
London, Nov. 13.���The crew of the
whaler Aurora, just arrived at Dundee and
report that they discovered in Bathos Bay,
the wreck of the schooner Ripple. This is
the vessel ia which two Swedish men of
Scienoe, Blorlfg and Kalvahnius, lefi St.
Johns, Nfd., in June 1S92. Thoir purpose w as to collect speciment of the flora
and fa una of Greenland, along Davis' Straits.
After search along the shore the crew found
two cairns along the spot where the Ripple
had gone to pieces. On was covered with
the remains of human bodies. Under the
other cairn were found manuscripts and
note written in English asking the finder to
to send the papers to Baron Nordonskjold or
the nearest consul. Near this cairn lay a
skeleton, supposed to be that of either
Bjorlfg or Kalvennius.
Want Peace,
London, Nov. 13.���The colonial offioe
has received dispatches from Accra, Gold
Coast Colony, dated Nov. 10, saying that
the ABhantees, who were recently reported
to be threatening the British prelate, want
peace and have no desire for war with the
Fought Against Arrest.
Southampton, Nov. 13.���Frank Floyd
and Philip Scheig, who, with Louis Floyd
robbed the bank of Minneapolis, of S90,O0O
arrived here on the S. S. Salle, this evening.
Detectives went out on the tender to meet
them. Floyd and Soheig boarded the tender and were at once placed under arrest.
Thty   fought  the   detectives desperately. NANAIMO, B. C, TUESDAY, NOVEMBER 14, 1893.
Yesterday at Both Morning and Evening
Services His Sermons Wero Listened
to With Great Attention-The Music
In the Evening Particularly was of a
High Order: Mr. Spear's WeU Trained
Choir, assisted by Mrs. Leighton and
Blrs. MoKecal' did Themselves Great
Credit-Mrs. ;McKec^-'s Organ Solo
was Highly Appreciated.
In the morning Mr. McLaren chose as his
text: "When the Son of Man cometh shall
He find faith on the   earth?"   Luke xviii, 8.
Some Christians, poor despondent pessimists, join with the enemies of Christianity
in answering this question in the negative
���nd the world in their opinion is steadily
growing worse, progress in knowledge
means increasing distance from God; and art
and science are simply ministers of vice and
Christianity was never meant to be a numerical success and when the Lord comes at the
close of the present age He will find faith
almost extinct; the flood gates of wickedness wide open; vast multitudes reokless,
defiant; only a small minority
loyal to God, aud walking in
the paths of truth and righteousness and
even their "heart failing them for fear."
Now this pessimistic view of the present
religious condition of the world and this
dreary forecast of its future are not warranted either by a correct interpretation of
the text or by the actuil facts of the case.
The question contained in the text is simply
a warning against faithlessness and discouragement and we have no right to torture it
into a prediction of the decay of faith. A
survey of the past history and present condition of the Christian world furnishes no
better excuse for hopelessness than a correct
interpretation of the text. Religion has
had its reverses. That's admitted. But
what of that? The waves of faith, like the
waves of the sea, may recede for the moment but they always return with accumulated energy. Taking the latter half of the
last century by way of illustration of the
temporary eclipse of faith, and the revival
of evangelical religion in this century, what
do we see? Hear the predictions of infidelity
of that period. Paine said his "Age of
Reason" would displace the Bible. But
while the world has] almost forgotten that
his book was written the Bible since that
time has been translated into some 300
languages and nearly 150,000,000 copies
have been issued by a single Bible society
���lone. Voltaire predicted that the beginning
of this century would witness the ex-
tic tion of the Christian faith, but
the truth is that this century has seen a
greater increase iu Christianity than the
whole previous eighteen centuries combined.
But is faith delining in these later days?
To properly answer this question, it is
necessary to distinguish things that differ.
Changes in religious forms and usages do
not in any sense affect the essence of Christianity itself. The characteristic of the
present age is not denial but enquiry. As
evidence that faith is not waning look at the
number of ohildren attending our Sunday
school's the liberality of Christian people in
the erection and support of churches; tha
large part faith plays in the ordinary life of
the world and the forces that it holds in check.
The few of timid friends will be largely
���Hayed and the boasts of aggressive foes will
be largely silenced, if due weight be given to
such considerations as these. The magnificent results already aohieved are the
best guarantee for the future; and those who
study the past most carefully will be most
ready, as the years roll by, to echo the mag-
nificient words of Robert Browning when he
"The year's at the spring
The day's at the morn
God's in Bis Heavsn
Al.'s right with the world."
Ia the evening Mr. McLaren's sermon
was on David's victory over Goliath, and
the large audience was captivated by the
eloquence with which be presented a most
masterful discourse more particularly addressed to those who are in the formative
period of life. The collections and subscriptions of the day amounted to about
9400, which shows a great deal of liberality
in these hard times. This amount will be
supplemented by tbe prooeeds of the con-
cert, bringing the amount up to nearly 9500.

Chas. L. Davis will occupy the Opera
House Friday night with his ever popular
play "Alvin Joslin," which has played with
uniform success for nearly sixteen years.

Alvin Joslin, a Vermont farmer, and Edwin
Milton his nephew, a New York broker, are
both married. A step-uncle of Milton's and
half uncle of Joslin's dies and leaves much
property. It is to go to the nephew in case
he don't marry, and if he does, to Joslin in

"Not As I Will."
Blindfolded and alone I stand,
With unknown thresholds on each hand;
The darkness deepens as I grope,
Afraid to fear, afraid to hope;
Yet this one thing I learn to know
Each day more surely as I go.
That doors are opened, ways are mule,
Burdens are lifted or are laid,
By some great law unseen aud still,
Unfathomod purpose to fulfill.
"Not as I will."
Blindfolded and alone I wait;
Loss seems too bitter, gain too late;
Too heavy burdens in the load,
And ton few helpers on the road;
Aud joy is weak and grief is strong,
And years and days so long, so long:
Yet this one thing I learn to know-
Each day more surely as I go,
That I am glad the good aud ill
By changeless law are ordered still,
"Not as I will."
" Not as I will," the sound grows sweet
Each time my lips the words repeat,
" Not as I will," the darkness feels
Moro safe than light when this thought steals
Like whispered voice to calm and bless
All unrest and all loneliness.
" Not as 1 will," because the One
Who loved us first and best lias gone
Before us ou tho road, and still
For us must all His love fulfill,
" Not as we will."
Children and Fresh Air.
Dr. Felix Oswald says that a large proportion of tbe deaths of children is caused
by lack of fresh air. "The first idea of au
average city uurse," says the doctor, "in
taking charge of a sickly infant, is tbe impulse of shutting off every faintest draught
of out-door air. Tho consequent decline of
the poor little martyr is ascribed, not to
its true cause, but to 'that crack in the
window frame,' 'that wretched big key-
bole.' If a child, by diut of marvelous
constitution, survives the misery of its pest.
don, the result encourages a continuance
of tbe time-honored custom. If the vital
principle succumbs after a desporato ��'niggle, that 'draught through tho door' has to
bear all the blame, and the key-hole is
plugged up all the tighter. In the Black
Hole of Calcutta the death of the victims
would be ascribed to the loophole iu the
wall that admitted a faint draught ot night.
What Science Ia.
The term science is often used as synonymous with knowledge; but practically there
Is a wide difference betweon the meanings
attached to tbe words science and knowledge. A man is often spoken of as one,
of wide knowledge, who yet knows no
science, whilst a scientific man is frequently
pitied or blamed for bis lack of knowledge.
Yet science is knowledge, though, perhaps,
one could har.lly be justified in saying that
knowledge is science. Why that Hesitation f
Probably because when we speak of a man
having a wide knowledge, we mean that hs
has a memory stored with facts; and when
we speak of a man of science, we mean that
be has not only a memory stored with facts
but also with principles; that he has the
power of arranging his facts in groups, and
of deducting tbe princigles or laws which
govern or concern these facts; that he has,
in short, tbe power of deduction and co-or-
diuutiou largely developed.

was esteemed a great luxury among the
Romans. They have always boon kept as
an ornament about baronial dyvollings and
well-kept lawns. In India, the train feathers of cue peacock have been used to embellish Hindoo temples and shrinea
of Hindoo gods. Tne world renowned
peacock throne which Shah Jehan erected
in tho Tay Mahal, in love and devotion for
his lovely and accomplished wife, was valued
by Taveruifir at oue million pounds sterling.
Although pea fowls have many faults and
are nowise useful to the owner, yot to the
man of taste mid handsome surrounding]
they aro the most beautiful and ornamental
birds iu existence. Our engravings show
front and back view of tho male bird.
Beauty and Its  Photo'.
Sir Thomas Browne says, "Nature hatb
made one world and art another," a dictum
which many admirers of the female face are
quite read,- to indorse. The reluctance ot
some young ladies to be " talion" on the suu-
plate is thus accounted for.
In regard to beauty, a photograph tells
nothing beyond form or face. Au Au'ciicnr,
physician, explaining his wife's antipathy to
thu camera, said:
"Her features aro not regular, and she
takes a horrid picture. Hor beauty rests in
her deep liquid eyes, coral lips, rich auburn
hair aud lovely complexion, qualities which
��� camera cannot reflect. On tho other hand,
a lady dull of eye and faded of hair van make
a capital photograph, if she has a straigth
nose and a tolerably good outline of features,
without the least expression."
A Story With a Point.
Jay Gould tells the following little story,
whioh is not without a moral: Daniel Drew
onco went into a tabernacle where sinners
wero confessing thoir crimes. There yvas ouo
man thumping bin chest and accusing himself of so many awful offenses that Dreyv become horrified. Turning to the Wan next to
hun he inquired:���
"My friend, who is this man who has done
these awful tilings!"
���'1 don't know who he is," tho stran jer said
to Drew, "Out I guess frn s account of

There is a class of papers whoso support ia worth having, and is, iiuloed,
in these times indispensible to success.
It consists of those which owe no duty
to any man or set of men, which owe
nothing, in fact, to anyone except to
the country, the public and their own
reputation for fairness, intelligence and
truth. These papors gather information with the single purposes of present*
ing accurate, authentic, and pertinent
facts. They pursue inquiries and lines
of reasoning with no other object than
to learn, state, and illustrate the
true needs of the country in the broadest sense. They keep sharp watch of
political leaders lest they may place selfish interest above the public good.
They speak the truth unhesitatingly
with regard to either of the two parties
as they offer themselves to praise or expose themselves to blame. They are
equally quick, without fear or favor, to
condemn the acta of a party when they
are bad acts, and to commend them
when they are good. Such papers have
a real influence in politics. The people
have confidence in them. They study
their information, follow their reasoning, and accept their advice when it
appeals, as it usually must to their own
good sense. The support of these papers
is, therefore, valuable.
But it cannot be bought; it must be
commanded. The party that seeks such
support, and through it expects to get
votes, must take care that its policy is
such as disinterested intelligence can
approve, and that its methods are not
open to fair and honest criticism. Then,
and under no other conditions, it will be
able to get its cause advocated before
the public through agencies in which
the people will have confidence.���Providence Journal. t

.The Grand Trunk.
The statement made by Sir Henry Tyler
at the half-yearly meeting of tbe sharehold-
ers of the Grand Trunk railway is exceptionally interesting. Sir Henry reports an increasing volume of tralHc aud a continual
outcry for more engines and curs. There
has been an increase in the receipts and of
tbe profits. Passonger truffle has, however,
fallen off slightly. This is attributable to
"la grippe," whioh prevailed so generally
last spring. The complaint with the French
name deprived tho railwav of traffic aggregating ��33,383, or ��117,000.' Tha work of double tracking the lino between Montreal and
Toronto is rapidly progressing. So far as it
has gone it has bad an excellent influence
upon business, tor it has reduced the uelays iu
the movement of traffic by 43 per cent. Sir
Henry does' not look for injurious consequences from the McKinley Act. On the
contrary, its effects, will be to drive some
Canadian products, formerly passing to the
United States, to the European and VV est
Indian mnrknts. The consequence of this
movement will boa longer haulage for the
Grand Trunk. There is ouo cl-md, however, on the horizon. This is the low rate
nt which through freight is now carried.
The president ot the Grand Trunk attributes
this to the presence in the field of the Canadian Pacific. Tbe latter company has recently opened its line from London to Windsor, and has made a contract with the YVa-
bush road by means of which it reaches
Chicago. The first result of the Canadian
Pacific competition was a reduction of the
rates on dressed meatshipments. Formerly
railways carried dressed meat from Chicago to tbe seaboard at sixty and sixty-five
cent? per hundred. Now, under the Canadian Facfic agreement, it is carriai at
from thirty to forty-five cents. ���Toronto

OU on the Breakers at Dangerous Bars.
The steamer Moxico appears to have solved a marine problem which may bo of great
use to navigators along certain portions of
the Pacirle coast. Ou the 33nd ult. she was
detained outside the Columbia River bar,
aud could not cross it. Tho detention was
caused by the heavy breakers which render
passage of vessels impossible at curtain
phases of the tides. Capt. Patterson states
that he waited outside ten hours for a favor-
ulile chance to cross tha bar, and at last do-
aided to try oil.
A large quantity of -'waste" was placed iu
the closet pipes, and oil was allowed to drip
slowly through to the water. The oil spread
with astonishing rapidity over an im-
inoiuo are* of water surface, and it spread
inshore over the dangerous bar. The result
was that the comb of the breakers was
broken, and the Mexico passed over in safety,
without shipping any sea. The experiment
proved such a success that it will be tried at
.������eve? 11 '��� bar -bound harbors along the north
coast .���>> vessels that usually suffer long aud
unprofitable detention.���From the San

Exercise For Ladies.
fthirloy Dare says: Moderate outdoor exercise���that is, fast while one is about it, but
not prolonged to exhaustion���is the best
medicine for digestive trouble, especially for
the queasy stomachs left by la grippe.
One of the very best exercises for this is
the very essential one in most gardens of
picking out stones from the borders aud
throwing them in a heap. There is no brain
wear about it, but shoulders and arms cow*
in play, and the bending and rising call tiie
muscles of the back and abdomen into action,
strengthening them and the organs they
contain. It is valuable for reducing the
girth of the waist, and better than horseback
riding for contracting paunchy outlines.

As will be observed by our London dispatches this morning there is now a prospect of the great coal mines strike in England being brought to an early settlement.
No conflict, we believe, betweon capital and labor baB ever taken plaoe
which lias been fraught with such great
disaster to those directly concerned
and the nation at large. The proposition
just made to the mine owner's and miner's
federations by the British Government if it
does not bring about an immediate settlement will no doubt open the way to direct
government interference at an early date
with the result of settling permanently the
struggle which has  been   so long pending.
We think a grave error has been committed by the Government in deferring action so long. Any question which involves
the prospeity of a nation properly comes
within the sphere of Government interference and especially is this the esse when the
issue affects the public at large. And in
this connection it to be hoped that the
Government of this Province will take,
steps at the next session of the Legislature
to put the Arbitration Act passed last session in workable shape. The day may not
be far off when the services of such sn Act
might save the country aa well as individual
interests a vast amount of trouble and expense. 	
An exhibition of mining machinery aud
mineral products will be held in Chili in
March next. The Chilian Government will
pay exhibitors expenses.

Lord Lansdowne has ordered from Canada
twenty tons of timothy hay. He has not
forgotten Canada, nor her productions,
during his sojourn in the land of the Great
Mogul, which he has governed wisely and
well since he left Canada. It speaks well
for this country that as soon as the want
was felt he knew that it could be filled here,
and it is only another instance of the kindly
remembrance with which the Governor-
Generals since the days of Lord Dufferin regard Canada.
It seems that the unfortunate sealers, deprived of their papers and ordered to Yokohama, are now liable to further trouble because of their inability to produce those
same papers in accordance with the harbor
requirements. AU vessels coming to the
port are compelled to send a copy of their
papers and a harborage fee of $2.1 to the
Custom House within forty-eight hours of
their arrival under a penalty, iu default, of
960. This penalty has not been demanded
yet, and probably a provisional certificate
will bt arranged. ���Hyoijo News.
All reputable news papers, observes a
conttinj-orary, excercise more care than
people give them credit for in the endeavor
to have all the news published accurately aud
honestly. That reporters are now aud then
deceived is inevitable, but were they less
shrewd and discerning than they are, the
deceptions would be much more frequeut.
They aim only to get the facts and get them
from sources supposed to be reliable. The
wonder is not that they are so frequently
mistaken, butthat in the hurry incident to the
preparation of a daily paper the erio.-s ate
so few. In almost every instance of unreliable reporting the informer not the reporter is at foult.
According to the Washington Iron Aye
a prominent member of the Ways and

said he, "will bo plaoed on the free list. I
do not see how we can do otherwise. Oi.e
of the cardinal features of the tariff revision
is free raw material, and these two items
are prominent in that category. I believe
it will be done by s striot party vote in
Tbe The New York Times, in commenting
on this statement, says: "The oommittee
should provide for the removal of the duties
on wood, coal and iron ore at the beginning

New Yokk, Nov. 13.���The Stock Market
to-day was entirely iu tho hands of ihe professionals, who advanced and depressed
prices according as it served their purposes.
London did little or nothing and probably
three thousand shares would more than
cover the omount of stock traded in foreign
account. Iu I he early hours of business, the
market was heavy and lower especially for
the indus'riils, Tha decline except in
special cases was considered merely the continuation of Saturday's Bear movement.

Mang Yu and Gresham Communicate.
Washington, Nov. 13. ��� The Chinese
Minister, Mr. Mang Yu, is not satisfied with
the action of the United States Government
in regarding as conclusive evidence certificates issued by the Chineae Consul General
at Havana, Cuba. Secretary Gresham is
the medium through whom he has made a
complaint. Several communications have
within the past ten days passed between the
two Governments on the subject. As far as
can be ascertained, the Chinese Minister objects to the certificates issued by the Chinese
Consul General at Havana being questioned
on presentation by the United States authorities at New York. Chinese inspectors,
it is alleged, have done this on several occasions, infact, tosuchanextent as to practically
deter Chinese with or without certificates
lrom landing from Havana. It is alleged in
justification of Mr. Scharf's action, which,
it is said, has so far met with the approval
of the Treasury Department, that, to put it
mildly, tho Chinese Consul General at
Havana is not as particular as he should be
in issuing certificates. Recent investigations have proved that Chinese who have
presented at New York certificates stating
that they were "actors," "students" and
"merohants" were not what they were represented. The residences given by "merchants" were unknown to local city directories. "Actors" were those who performed
with a flat iron. "Students" were those who
desired to learn the English language in the
Chinese laundries. Most of the Chinamen,
it is alleged, who come by way of Havana,
originally entered at San Francisco, bound
for Cuba, and under a liberal construotion
of tho Chinese Exclusion Act, are permitted
to paBS through the U.S. to Havana. There
they obtain certificates, and armed with
them enter the U. S, by way of Key West,
Florida and New York. The assertion by a
government official connected with the execution of the Chinese law, for many years,
that of the 110,000 Chinamen now in the
U. S. more than half of them have come
into this coun'ry since the Chinese exolnsion
law was passed iu 1892. Secretary Gresham,
will on Monday, transmit, to tho Chinese
Minister, a letter just received by him from
the Treasury Department, explaining certain acts of which the Chineae Minister

Wonderful     Guardians    of   the    Hiimua
Any physician with the least smattering of microscopic, knowledge will tell
you that hundreds, thousands or even
millions of deadly microbes enter the
human body every day by way of
the respiratory organs and the esophagus. "But why," you ask, "are these
deadly midges comparatively inoxious?"
Because they are caught, killed and devoured by minute guardians placed at
every vulnerable point throughout the
system! In one sense of the word these,
watchful guardians are simply blood
cells, but they are called phagocytes
and seem to be endowed with an extraordinary amount of reason. They have
independent power of motion and not
only wander inside the veins but often
make their way outside the tissues and
pursue, devour and digest any bacilli,
whether poisonous or otherwise, with
which they come in contact. So long
as these phagocytes remain on guard
the body is safe ifrom attack; but,
should they relax their vigilance, millions of invading parasites would p:uss
into the blood and destroy life, either

Rugby Football.
Tbe following  notes  on  Rugby  football
have been handed in to this office by an old
football player which will no   di.ubt   be appreciated by those interested   in the welfare
of the game in this city: The following criticisms, if taken in the  same  spirit  in which
they are made, will   most   assuredly do the
Hornets no harm.    To begin with they have
making of a  first   elms   Rugby   team, who
would do honor to any  city   whether in the
Old Country or America.    It is on   account
of the high estimate held   of   the   club that
these   criticisms   are   offered.    In the commencement of Saturday's play  for iustance,
one noticeable feature was  the   tendency of
the wing three-quarters to press in upon tho
centres, i.e., they  would   not   line out sufficiently to  have   their   wings   close to the
touch line.    15y not  doing s > the speedy as
well as effective passing of tho   bull   to the
wing      man      ia      destroyed.      Passing
is   speedier   than     running    and     when
tne men are well lined out the ball is carried
to the man at the touchline in the speediest
manner.    More especially ia this lining  out
necessary when the scrum occurs in t'ie opponents twenty-live on either   side   of the
.goal and near the touch line.    On Saturday
if this pissing had  been   carried   out Vancouver would have been beaten by u,  larger
score." Another poiut noticed waB the  wild
"dropping" at goal by all of the three-quarters with the exception of Hawthornthwaito.
""Dropping" at goal is not to be encouraged
in a team; it savours too   much of  "Grandstand'' play and loses more   than   it gains.
Very seldom has a wild drop at goal turned
into a try and what ground has been gained
by careful play is thrown away and wasted.
It was apparent that in Saturday's game the
Hornets had so much of the play that a lot
of the wild play may be laid to that account;
they not thinking it necessary   to   play as
close a game as they would have,  had they
been harder pushed, but they must   remember that if wild play, as above, iB enoouraced
it is liable to ocour when it   is   not wanted
and may have the result of losing a match.
In these days it is a   team   not  individual
play that is to be encouraged,  fifteen years
ago it was different, three-quarters in  those
days not being supposed to pass.    When four
threequarters aro played, the t�� o wings should
be at least six feet  behind  the  cei.tros;  so
that they can if necessary, come up to  the
ball with their speed on, whereas when they
are abreast of the centres  th?.y  most probably have the ball passed forward to them
and what ought to be a gain ia a loss.
The forwards on Saturday played a magnificent game but if they are going to play
Rugby up to date must beet out quickly, as
soon if possible ��b the aorimmage ia forward,
when in their opponenta twenty-five. It is
passing the ball from hand to hand and
dribbling that win Rugby games nowadays,
especially dribbling when there only remain
the opponents backs to heel with. Doubtless, however when next the Hornets line
up, the above offensive points will be
emitted they will be a mat oh for any
twenty men Jn British Columbia at Rugby."

"OldCaptain Coffin," well known throughout British Columbia and the Puget Sound
country aa the skipper of small steam smuggling crafts, was buried in Ross Bay Cemetery yesterday at the city's expense, he having died a pauper. The captain was around
town as usual on Friday, though not feeling
quite himself, and in the evening complained
of severe pains in the stomach, and died in
the arms of his wife while she was endeavoring to relieve his pain. Dr. John A. Duncan, who was called in shortly afterwards,
did not believe the man dead and simple
tests seemed to show that he was right in
bis opinion. The closed fingers when held
to tho light showed a trace of color between;
the skin blistered when touched with a
candle flame; a small vein of the arm waa
opened and the blood flowed, though sluggishly. In the morning it bad ceased to
flow and post mortem staining was plainly
visible in evidence of death. Heart disease
ia said to have terminated the Captain's
career. There was no inqueat, although

was furniahed on Friday nigh. is moat extraordinary���in fact a parallel caae had

the writing haa became pretty well obliterated it ia no easy t sic to find out to whom
the property ahould be sent. Some of the
letters contained money, one from North-

money checks, drafts and other valuable

The Architect Being Held Responsible
for Alleged Deficiencies in New Fire
The regular weekly meeting of the City
Council waa held in the council chamber last
evening. Present: His Worship the Mayor,
Aldermen McKinnell, Dubeson, Quennell,
Cocking, Garner and Nightingale.
A petition was read from Joseph Alliscn
and several othera praying for a crossing on
Victoria Road near the end of Prideaux
street. Referred to the street committee
for action.
A communication in the form of a certificate waa read from Mr. Honeyman certifying that Mr. U. H. Frost had completed the
building and painting cf the New Fire Hal!
on the corner of Commercial street and
Victoria Road. Deferred for discussion. A
letter was read from Andrew Haalam M. P.
for permiasion to lay a drain across Wallace,
Comox road, and Mill streets to connect liis
new residence with the salt water. Permission granted on usual terms.
The following accounts were presented-
G. H. Frost, balance due on Fire Hall,
$281 35; E. McNeil, $2.75; Pay Sheet, $652.-
20; Free Press, $18.35. Referred on motion
to Finance Committee for payment.
Reports of Committees.
Aid. Ganner, chairman of the sleet com'
mittee stated that very little work was
being done on streets, aa only a small force
was employed. The necsesary grades had
been given and agreed upon for the new
butchers shop in connection with the cooperative store, and also for the new fire
hall for a distance up the Victoria road.
The grades had been asked for two lots near
the E- & N. R. R. for Mr. Davis but these
were difficult grades to t;ive and aotion
thereon would have to be deferred until Mr.
Heyland returned from Victoria, but in any
event on account of its position te the track
great care would have lo be exercised or
tronble would be likely to ensue. The report was ordered to be received and filed.
Aid. Cocking, Chairman of the Sanitary
Committee asked for a weeks further time
to report in the case of scavenger.  Granted.
Mayor Haslam said he had had a case of
scarlet fever reported to him by the health
officer, Dr. Praeger. He had seen the
parties in whose house the case had occurred
and they had most solemnly promised to
oarry out a complete state of isolation.
Subsequently, however, on thinking the
matter over he had come to the conclusion
that if he agreed to this it might establish a
very dangerous precedent and tint another
case might arise in the future which, if not
treated as far as quarantine was concerned
in a similar manner, might cause a great
deal of trouble and diasatiBfactios. He had,
therefore, instructed the city clerk to see
that a watchman was put on during the day
to keep a guard on the house. He had the
most implicit faith that the people would
carry out their promises but, aa he said before, it would be unwise to create a precedent.
Corporation Work.
R. Prouae road superintendent reported
that the corporation workmen had been employed during the week in putting in a box-
drain on the Meakin property, repairing the
sidewalk on Victoria Cresent, clearing and
filling in drains on Milton street, repairing
the side walks on Nicol street, doing work
on tbe school house, putting in a crossing on
Faruuhar street and handling gravel and
grading Grace street.
The deferred communication from Mr.
Honeyman on the fire hall contract waa tben
taken up.
Aid Nightingale said that he would move
that the report be received and Mr. Frost
paid the balance lying to his oredit on the
contract. There waa nothing else in his
opinion to do as they could not go
behind the architects certificate
the architect was the agent of the Council,
and all the Council could do under the circumstances was to accept the report and
pay for the work. The painting had not
been altogether what it ought to have been,
but in the face of the ceitificate it was too
late to take exception.
Aid. Dobeson seconded the motion.
Aid. Quennell asked Aid. Nightingale if
the architect's attention had been called to
the defects.
Aid. Nightingale said it had, and some
alterations had been made in consequence.
Aid. Ganner said the fire wardens had
taken the precaution to warn the architect
of their dissatisfaction with aome of the
painting and atriping before the scaffolding
was taken down, but in the face of this
warning on the part of the fire wardens he
had allowed the work to pass. Besides this
there was part of the hall which had not
been painted, and now the sidewalk was
laid it lay below the paint and had a bad
Aid. Quennell said he was'nt in favor of
paying for this work if it had been unprop-
erly completed. This was a strictly business proposition and it cut no figure at all
whether Frost made anything on it or not.
Aid Cocking said that he had met Mr.
Honeyman last week and told him that
Frost would not be paid unless he made the
differences good. On fault being found with
painting it had been repainted and the
remedy was worse forono color was deep red
and the other was light. If he had been
warned of this after the scaffolding had
taken down it would be a different thing.
Aid. Dobeson said he could appreciate the
difficulty in re-painting ana it oould only be
done at a great expenee.
Mayor Haalam aaid that in his opinion the
council had nothirg to do with the matter.
They had appointed an agent to look after
the work and an architect's certificate in a
court of law waa the very beat of evidence
and very difficult evidence to refute. He
didn't see how they could refuae to pay the
amount on the face of the certificate.
Aid. Quennell said he would move in
amendment that the matter be laid over for
one week ao as to have an explanation from
the architect.
Aid. Cocking said that he was unable to
see why the Council should be compelled to
pay this account. The contractor had given
bonds for a due performance of his contraot
and that contraot should be carried out.
Aid. McKinnell said that he would sup-
fort the main motion to pay the contractor.
here waa no other alternative in the face
of the architect's certificate. There waan't
really much to find fault with in the building.
Aid. Quennell aaid he knew nothing of the
building, but he was simply going on the
word of two of the street committee, Dobeson and Cocking.
Aid. Nightingale said he had spoken to
Mr. Honeyman and he said distinotly that
he had seen Frost put on three coats of paint
but he had seen three coats of paint put on
before this, for instance on the Trustees'
Hall, where two of the coats were put on at
once, and, as far aa   the  striping  went, he
could aay that it was as good as the general
run in the city, but in face of the architect's
report what could they do ? Moreover Frost
had made little or nothing out of the contract.
Aid. McKinnell aaid that he found that a
balance of $100 was due the architect and
that should be held to make good the deficiencies.
Aid. Queenell said what the contractor
made cut no figure in the dispute but would
withdraw hia amendment on condition that
the architect waa held good for it. The
amendment waa then withdrawn and the
main motion carried.
A motion waa carried to notify that bills
be sent to the proprietois of the different
buildings who have been connected with the
Bastion-Commercial street sewer. The
crossing at the corner of Dickson street
and Victoria road was ordered to be
attended to.
The Council then adjourned.

extensive scalo iu England, and the results
obtained point to the development of an
efficient and economical system upon this
In one case London sewage was used, mid
in another the sewage from Salford and
Pendleton, in the latter case the problem
was to reduce the sewage to a degree of
purity that would permit tho passage of tha
resulting liquid into the Manchester Ship
Tbe method consisted in passing the sewage through a brick channel 200 feet long,
V feet wide and 18 inches doep, in which
were placed large cast-iron plates connected
with dynamos.
The passage of a current of electricity
througli the cast-iron plates precipitated
from 70 to 80 per cent, of the organic
It was estimated that 1.0,000,000 gallons of
the sewage of Salford and Pendleton could
be purified daily at a cost of about 833,000,
A New   Wrought Iron Method,
Dr. Stephen H. Emiuens, of Emmons,
this State, who is known to fame as the inventor of the powerful explosive that bent's
his name, assarts that he has worked ous
into practical shape aprooss of direct conversion of pig-inm into wrought-iron by
menus of electric.ty.
The process is pimply an elaboration and
adaptation of existing methods of electrical
deposition , and by this means Dr. Eminens
claims to bs able t> produce from any gradj
of pig-iron a ductile malleable iron of almost chemical purity which only needs
washing, heating and rolling to make ic
equal to the best quality of Swedish iron.
Tho inventor of this novel procesi claims
that he call produce wrought iron by this
method at a lower cost thau the ordinary
process of puddling, and that still further
economy results from the use of low grades
of pig-iron made from ores that are too
impure to be used by exiting processes of

Railroad men have given considerable
attention in late years to tie plates ns a
means of prei-er^ing the bearing 6Ulfr.3e��
of railroad ties, and at tbe same time
lessening the labor required to keep the
track in line and surface.
Ill addition to theso results the value of
tie plates in preventing th�� spreading of
rails,is being generally recognized. Test* on
this point recently made by the Illinois
Bieel Company showed that a lateral pressure of 11,230 pounds upon a rail was required to lift the inside spike when a tie
plate was used.
Without tho tie plate a pressure ot 5000
pounds spread tbe guage of the track oue-
hnlf an inch.
Iu similar tests with cedar ties at ths
Watertowu (Mass.) Arsenal, a rail fastened
with two spikes was moved by a. pressure
of 2107 pounds, while a tie plate and two
spikes gave a resistance of 7910 pounds.
A   New .'�� .esti#   Mine.
The wonuSrful aabestos mine found near
Hamilton has been uncovered in a ledge fill*
a distance of seventy-live feet, and at the
cropping, or as far as the discoverers have
beeu able to go iu this brief lime, tho ledge
proved to be eight feet in width.
Tbe rock takeu from tho ledgo, after the
surface crusting was removed, is pure asbestos ore, as white as chalk and Hue as silk,
the feathery libers being as long as tha
pieces of rock from which they are puled,
in come cases rcachuig the entire Isngl h of
eighteen inches.
Tbe value of the mine is almost beyntid

discovered may be formed from tho tact
that asbestos ore of this high grade readily

About what
The Butterick
Publishing Company
Say about
Their Patterns
Purchasers of our Patterns
will uote that, beginning with
the issue for the present month,
a material reduction has been
made from the prices hitherto
charged, this reduction having
been determined upon in view
of the present financial and
coirmercial depression, which
is affecting every class of
society, but particularly the
wage-earners, who are nece3
sarily the least able to with
stand any condition which for
a time decreases or wholly
withdraws their income.
The enormous circulation of
"The Delineator" (the com
bined first American, English
and Canadian editions of the
present number are over 560,-
000 copies) is proof that it
srtisfies a very general need,
and our aim for the future will
be to merit an ever increasing
share of popular favor by main
taining a continual improve
ment in the quality and scope
of the magazine. In reducing
the prices of our Patterns we
have been actuated by motives
of regard for those who Lave
contributed, by their constant
patronage, to our own success.
The demand for Butterick Pat
terns is now larger than ever
before, and we are confident
that by diminishing their cost
we will lessen the financial
pressure in many a household,
and at the same time introduce
our goods to women who have
heretofore been unacquainted
with their merits.

' CIIRISTMAS tree ought

one with branches firm,

the strands that ci mrine the upper branches of trees as prepared for market, then

popped-corn, strings of cranberries,
glittering ornarients, etc., etc. The

brilliant effect, it is a good plan to hang

The Ouiananiche.
My first experience of Ouiananiche
fishing in 1890 and a copy of verses I
wrote down in niy note-book as a tribute to my new finny friends:
You are sailing along
Softly singing a song,
"Whilst admiring the view
And the heavenly blue,
Deftly casting a fly
And hoping soon to spy
A bright Ouiananiche,
It begins to feel dull,
When, Ohl there's a great pull
And the reel cries swish.
.Splashing, dashing, flashing
Plashing, lashing, mashing
Here, there, everywhere;
Leaping into air,
Moiling, toiling, moiling,
Tackle straining, spoiling,
Fighting strong and fair
Every trick to dare,
Pluckiest of all the fish
Is the noble Ouiananiche.
Air���When we wore first acquent.
The first thing this fish does when he
is hooked is to shoot up into the air and
bo he continues on most of the time
until he either frees himself or is landed.
One fish leaped twelve times before he
went into the landing net; another ten
times, and these are fair examples. I
do not think that they are more plucky
than black bass, nor do they make such
runs, but they pull just as hard and leap
a great deal more and consequently the
sport is more exciting. A number of
four pounders were caught this year
.and one of 5 3-4 lbs., but it is rare to get
them over 4 lbs and very many do not
go over from 1 to 2 lbs. I think that on
the whole they are the most lively fish
I ever caught.���Brone, in Montreal Star.
Meat Fur the Bermudas.
The Imperial Government is advertising for a supply of animal food for the
Bermuda Islands, and is asking for
tenders for the same. So far New York
has had a monopoly of the business,
which must be a profitable one. Some
years ago Aid. Frankland tendered more
than once to the Imperial Government,
anxious to introduce Canadian beef into
the islands, but New York influence was
of 6i oh a character that they had the
"inside track," and his representations
to the British Government went unhoed-
,ed. Surely the time has come, in the
face of McKinley bills and Behring Sea
seizures, when a country so hostile to
British Imperial and to Canadian interests should cease gaining by Imperial
patronage at the expense of Canadian
loyalty. Canada can supply the British
garrisons at the Bermudas with both
live and dead meat equal to anything
, shipped from the United States and quite
.as cheaply. If some of those interested
in the meat trade of Canada would draw
the attention of the High Commissioner
of Canada and of the Minister of Agriculture to the necessity of making an
effort to secure this trade to the Dominion, through their efforts the Imperial
Government would no doubt withdraw
its American advertisements and give
people loyal to it   a chance.���Toronto

An Empress ol Marked Crlglnollty,
When the Empress of Austria was at
Naples, a little while ago, on board the
beautiful yacht (,'liazalie, she caused
much astonishment to the ceremony-
loving Italians by the way she went
about almost unattended and unrecognized, and chiefly on foot One day she
was observed entering the Cafe de' Europe with only one other lady, and seen
eating her brioche and drinking her
coffee like the very humblest citizen in
Naples. Strange, too, the imperial lady
.appeared to enjoy the change from the
pomp and ceremonies of State, and to
look happier (if she can now be said to
look happy at all) than when she was
the cynosure ol every eye in ths
Austrian capital.
Who la the Strongest Man In the Wurld J
���A Question Yet Unanswered���A
Mighty Man of Afasole��� The Ami of
Who is the strongest   man in the world?
There are at least a dozen before public
notice to-rlav who claim to be that man, and
each performs certain feats of strength
whteh would see n to warrant, his ri^ht to
that title. It is difficult to determine, however, which one of the lot is superior in
physical ttrength, because, invariably, each
is able to preform some particular feat
which another cannot.
This popular regard for physical strength
is inherent and uiidyin?. It was manifested by the people of the time of Jlilo of
Croton, twemy-five centuries ago, and is
shown to-day at all athelelic games.
The Samsons of modem times are mee
who have lieeu naturally endowed with
great muscles and enormous strength, but
who have increased and added to botii hy
constant training and practice. Attention is
given particularly to their strongest muscle,-, and these actually become abnormally
developed. Other muscles are neglected,
so that the spectacle of a giant's arms and
trunk upon an ordinary man's legs is very
commonly presented. Few of the "strong
men" of to-day are physically well proportioned, for they have given all their attention to the development of certain muscles.
The most remarkable of all the strong
men is Louis Cyr, of Quebec, who is now iu
New York. He ia a giant in strength and
stature, as will be seen by u consideration of
his measurements. He is only 27 years of
age, ,but he weighs 823 pounds. The tups
showed his physical dimensions to be as follows: Height, 6 feet 10}�� inches; chest, (inflated), 58 inches; waist, 48 inches; biceps,
21>�� inches; thigh, S3 incbes;calf, 24 inches;
neck, 22 inches. Cyr's specialty is the lift-
in? nf heavy weights and the puttine up of
big bells.
He can take an ordinary man and toss
him about es if he were nothing more than
a bag of oats. He scarcely knows his own
strength. An idea of ths enormous piwer
of bis arms can lie gained through ths
statement that ho lifted a dumb-bell, weigh-
ing 2U5 pounds, with one hiu.l from the
ground to the shoulder, and then slowly
pushed it up from the shoulder to arm's
length, usiug only the one hand. T ere is
probably not suct'ier man in the world who
could do this. Another time he tried a pair
of bells together, which weighed 440 pounds,
attached a string three feet long, and then
lifted this great weight from the ground
with one finger.
He also put up a 109-pound boll with one
hand twenty-seven times in succession. His
greatest display of strength was made at out
a year ago, in Montreal, in a lifting match
with a man named Harre. On a small platform weighing 140 pounds were placed seven
dumb-bells, weighing 789 pounds, a barrel
of Sour aud seven heavy men. Cyr put his
giant arms urouu 1 the platform and lifted
the lot. Thu aggregate weight was 2H2S
pounds. In another way he lifted S:'M
pounds of pig iron at Berthirville, Que., on
October 1, 1888. The iron was placed on a
plauk, which rested on a trestle. Cyr got
under the plunk, and pushing: up with his
back, arms aud legs, raised the weight clear
of the trestle. No other man in tbe world
hus beeu able to approach thia performance.
~A Greeu.Halred Girl.
A pretty Irish girl who arrived in New
York recently ou the White Star steamer
Britauic, set tbe employes of tbe barge office in a commotion. She was toll, well developed, rosy c) eeked, blue eyed and
cherry lipped, and a mass of wavy sea green
hair crowned tier stately head. She was
Emily Maud Higgina, twenty-one years
old, of county Ualway, Ireland, and she
came to set employment, not to pose
an a museum freak. There is nothing peculiar about Miss Higgina except the shade
of her hair. When she waa Tory young
it was of a sulphurous hue. At the back
of her head bur parents noticed that
when she was standing in certain positions
the hair had a greenish tint. As time rolled
on another discovery waa made. On a
auoiiy, bright day Miss Higgim's hair was
always light. When it was foggy, frosty
er rainy her hair always became darker
���nd greener When seen under thu gas
light the hair is ot a nice chestnut. Father
Cahill, of the mission, says that in Ireland
there ia an old tradition that any one who
goes to tho Lakes of Killarney and stands in
a certain position just after midday will
have hair of emerald hus. The color is
caused by the reflection of ths mountain on
tbe lakes. Tbe belief is held by everyone
there. ...i
How Stanley Won HIa Wife.
Speaking of Mr. Stanley's courtship,
Mrs. Tennant, mother of Mrs. Stanley,
said: "Henry wooed a long time before
he won. I did not give my consent at
once. When he came to me and pleaded for Dolly's hand I said:
" 'No, Henry; Dolly is all that I have
left and I cannot, shall not, part with
her. The mother-in-law in England
plays a lonely part. She is not welcome
toiler daughter's household; her visits
must be few and brief. They have taken
my other daughter away���I caunot part
with Dolly!'
"Henry pleaded long and eloquently;
at times he would almost weep. The
tears would fill his eyes and he would
choke with emotion.
"One day he said: 'I am alone in the
world; I have neither father nor mother,
brother nor sister; I am perishing of
loneliness. I know nothing of and care
less for the customs of tho country. I
want your daughter to be my wife; give
her to me and do you at the same time
become my mother, father, brother, and
" 'Henry,' says I, 'do you mean it?'
" 'I do,' he answered, firmly, and I
saw' determination flashing from the
same eyes before which the ferocious
barbarians of Ujiji had quailed and
under which the hostile hordes of inhospitable Njandja had melted' away like
mists of the morning.
*' 'She is yours!' I cried, and then I
added, 'and so am II' Now, that,'1
continued the proud mother-in-law, "is,
in brief, the story of his wooing. I am
his as inseparably and indissolubly as
Dolly is. I shall never leave him. I regard him as one of the noblest and most
lovable men on earth, and I have no
other ambition than to aid him with the
benefit of my counsel and experience.
Knowing this, he is ever the paragon of
affection and gentleness, and I am certain that no woman���at least no English
woman���ever had a more tractable or
more obedient son."���Chicago News.

Dashaway (to hostess, after the evening party)���I want to ask you if I may

the prettiest girls in the room.
Hostess���Certainly, my dear Mr.
Dashaway; I was just about to ask you
if you would be so kind, for there is
such a scarcity of gentlemen. But
(archly) it is rather awkward for you
that there are two of them.
Dashaway���Oh, that's all right (a
moment later, to the elder Miss Curtis),
���My dear Miss Curtis, I am
going to escort your sister home;
I will be back for you in half an hour.

Col. Baker, Minister of Minea, returned
Sunday evening en route to Victoria from
China Creek Minea whither he had been as
agent for the Duke of Montrose. And had
been making arrangements for the opening
up of the China Creek Minea Col Baker reports that difficulties existed at the start in
getting in supplies. The men aent knew
nothing about packing and the horses used
for the purpose also lacked an appreciation
of their work. The men's cabins will be
built in the immediate vicinity of the mine.
A large quantity of provisions had beeu
packed up to tho situation of these proposed
cabins under great difficullios on account of
the bad trail and depth of biiow. It is the
intention of the owner should
the mine turn out profitably to
build a smelter on a piece of property which
they have purchased at the mouth of China
Creek. The necessary tunnela will it is expected be completed by the end of March.
Nothing can or will be done on the proposed
new road to Alberni before the meeting of
the Legislature. A gentleman lately arrived
from Alberni states that a road can be built
from the head of China Creek to connect
with the Alberni road near Cameron Lake
which will save some twenty miles of travel.
Thia would of course not connect with Alberni except from the minea direct thereto.
Mr. Armstrong of the Alberni mail who arrived in town last night states that F. P.
Saunders a brother to Henry Saunders of
Victoria received a contract for supplying
ten thousand pounds weight of provisions to
the Golden Eagle outfit.
He also reports that the six year old aon
of Mr. Valentine Ingram had met with a
painful accident by breaking his leg. He
was attended by the resident physbian.
A large number of pack horses left for the
mines yeaterday. A large number of men
also left for the improvement of the road to
the mines.

The large audience which assembled in the
Wallace Street Methodist Church to hear
the anniversary concert last evening had
not time to grow impatient before the Rev.
R. R. Maitland, the pastor took the ohair
at 8:20. The programme aa advertissd.Jwas
not airiotly aChered to, some numbers being
omitted, while the many encores insisted on
by the audience caused the curtailing of the
second part considerably, it being 10:30
when the audience joined in singing the
National Anthem. The programme opened
by a well rendered chorus by the church
choir, followed by a solo from Mrs. Wads-
worth. Mr. Gus Bate ia a special favorite
with a Nanaimo audience, and his rendering
of "The old organ Loft" called forth an
enthusiastic encore. Mrs. Leightone solo,
"Heart b," waa especially good, and she responded to an en core. TheorgansolobyMrs.Dr
McKechnie was a revelation to the music-
loving people assembled. One would imagine she made it into a speaking pipe organ
in her rendition of "The Pilgrims Song of
Hope." An interesting ten-minute address
by Rev. F. D. McLaren of Vancouver, on
"Manhood" brought the first part of the
programme to a close.
Part second opened with a selection on
the piano by Misa Roe, which was encored.
A solo by Mr. Johnson and recitation by
Mibb R. Tanner were well received. Mra.
Davidson's aolo "Sweet Spirit Hear My
Prayer," was given with great pathos, and
she responded to an i ucore. Another organ
boIo by Mrs. McKechnie was even better
received by the audience than her first and
enthusiastically encored. "Only a Tangle
of Oolden Hair," solo by Mrs. Leighton,was
the last number rendered, and called forth
an encore from the audience, but she did
cot respond,owing to the lateness of the hour.
Altogether the concert was a most unqualified success, and the proceeds amounted  to
