London, Nov. 28.���In the House of Commons to-day Mr. .Sidney Buxton, Parliamentary Secretary of the Colonial Office,
responding to questions, said the Houae
would be glad to learn the viewa of the
Earl of Aberdeen, Governor General of
Canada, on the recant attempt to blow up
the Nelaon monument it Montreal. The
Governor-General had telegraphed that the
affair was a freak on the part of three ex-
excitable lads. It had been the subject of
regret and complete disapproval in the
French as well aa the English papers of
Canada. Mr. Edward Caison (Conservative), member for Dublin, asked it the Gov
eminent had auy information regarding the
dynamiters* in Dublin. Mr. Herbert Ab-
quith, the Home Secretary, said that there
had undoubtedly been an attempt made to
cauae a dynamite ezploaion at the Aid-
borough Barracka. It remained to be seen
what, if any, connection there was between
thia affair and the murder of Patrick Reid.
The Government preferred to aay nothing
in the meantime.
British and Canadian Opinions on the
Changes���Viewed from a British Columbia Stand-Point.
London, Nov. 28.���The published provisions of the new U. S. tariff bill has caused special surprise in the cutlery, steel and
electro plate industries of Sheffield. A representative of the United Press to-day
interviewed the principal Sheffield manufacturers trading with the United Statea to
ascertain their opinions of the Wilson Bill.
Some said that the reductiona made were not
as large as they expected. Othara aaid
they were satisfied with the bill, and expressed the hope that it would lead to a revival of ordera from the United States.
These manufacturers wbo expected larger-
reductions baaed their hopes upon reporta
which their agents in America aent early in
the year. They now expreaa the belief
that the tariff bill waa modified in
consequence of the results of the
recent elections. Manufacturers generally
wanted to know exactly what kind of cutlery will be allowed to come under the 35
per cent, tariff, because if this rate covers
medium goods, they see good prospect of
their American trade reviving. A' tha
same time, they think that the low tariff
will allow German manufacturers to fiood
the American market with cheap products
to the serious detriment of good American
manufacturera. Getman makers, they say,
expecting tariff reform, have been piling up
enormous stocks ready to pour into the
United States.
What the "Globe" Thinks About It.
Toronto, Nov. 28.���The Globe commenting on the American tariff says: "Apart
from the financial effects of the propoaed
measure, which will be important, not only
to Canada, but to the commercial world at
large, the fiscal, revolution ia intereating in
itself, aa a more important event than any
change in Government forma or systems.
The protective featurea have not been entirely removed from the tariff and there ia
some protection philosophy in Chairman
Wilson'a report. The free liat, however, ia
most comprehensive and so advantageous to
Canadians, that they can readily excuse the
occasional cropping up of the old fallacies."
The Mall Also Heard From.
The Mail (Independant) says: "It ia de
aigned purely in the int irests of the American people. The new tariff ia calculated, if
accepted, to be beneficial to them in more
waya than one. Certainly it will liberalize
the commercial conditions, and by improving their productive powers will increase
their outside trade. But it opens up new
problems for the Dominion Wovornment.
With the sugar duties cut down one half
and with binder twine and all agricultural
implements free on the other side of the
line, the pressure for tariff reductiona hare
will become stronger than ever".
As the "Empire" Views It.
The Empire (Couaervative) saya : " The
Democrats, on the whole, have acted wiaaly.
They have adopted the Canadian system
and free raw materials. They have neither
reduced the duties on or freed entirely moat
of the food producta in the intereat of the
American conaumer. In theae respects the
ory for change haa been partly met. We de
not prophesy what the outcome may be, but
certainly, so far as Chairman Wilaon outlines the tariff, it ia a reduction, but not
by any meana free trade."
The "Gazette" Sees Good in It.
Montreal, Nov. 2S.��� The Gazette (Gov-
ernment organ), commenting- on the new
American tariff bill, aays:���"The measure aa
given to the country ia a fair fulfillment of
the party'a pledgee to the country. The
effect of tho measure will be mutually beneficial to both Canada and the United
"Herald" Thinks It Drastic Enough.
~The Herald (Liberal) says: "Wilson has
done a work  which   the   Canadian Finance
Minister should emulate.   The reduotion is
quite drastic enough   to   acquit   the Demo-

crate of the charge that in passing it tli-'j-
will not fulfil their promises of Tariff Reform. Our trade with the Uuiteil -States,
which has been fulling off rapidly for the
past ten years, will pick up wondei fully if
this bill b,-cunies a law, to the great mutual
advantage of both countries, since, if ��e sell
Americans more good, we shall certainly
buy more from them in return."
Mr. S. M. Robins Expresses His Views
On the Subject.
List evening a representative of the Tklk-
j gram called on Mr. S M. Robins, Supenn-
I tr-ndent of the Now Vancmiver Coal Com-
pany, anil m-keil that ^.-mli-nian his opinion
on the abolition of the coal duty. Mr.
Robins said as yet it would be difficult to
say how il would affect the British Columbia mines. Our chief competitors were
from Japan, Australia uud latterly Euglish
coals were finding a market in San Francisco, and being sold there as low as five and a
half dollars per ton. There coals are being
brought out as ballast and, therefore, can be
delivered almost as cheaply as in the countries where they are mined. No change
need be looked for from i his direction until
an improvement iu shipping rates takes
place. The Australian and Japan coal ia of
a very good quality and, therefore, finds as
ready sale in San Francisco aa the British
Columbia product.
Mr. Robins said that such benefits aa we
may derive from the change in the American tariff will come from our being able to
hold our own againat the cheap coals from
Puget Sound. While the changes are in the
right din cticn we cannot lope for any immediate benefit. In consequence of the new
act not coming into effect before the 4th of
March next, large coal dealers will withhold
their orders until they see what the result
of the tariff reductiona will be. No liveli
ness in the market will follow at present
and as far as is now known, next month will
be and excessively dull one. Of course one
cannot tell what changes a few days or
weeka may bring about but the prospects
for the immediate future are certainly not
very bright.
The Strike Broken.
Bethlehem, Pa., Nov. 28. The Lehigh
division of the Lehigh Valley railway to
night shows no signs of the strike. More
than two thousand cars of coal passed east
of Packerton, while nearly as many passed
west. Passenger trains make all connections. Preaident Wilbur aays:���"Bu(i-
nesa is improving at all points along
the line. There are a large number of collieries now in operation.
I do not Bee but that the strike is over. 1
do not mean to say that things are in altogether as good shape now aa before the
strike began, but we are running traina on
all diviiiona without inconvenience. We
have closed the employment office in Philadelphia, and have more applicants for
work than we require.
Senor Mendonca Don't Believe the Report
Washington, Nov. 28.���The report in
the London Times this morning to the effect
that the state of Para had joined the revp-
lutionary forces in Brazil, is not credited at
the Brazilian Legation in this city. Senor
Medonca, the Brazilian Minister, Baid today that no dispatch which he had received
from hia Government made mention of the
defection of Para, and if auch had been the
oase he would certainly have been notified
Senor Mendonca, when asked whether or
not theie was anythiug in the political
condition of affairs in Para that would
lead him to believe such a movement in that
state probable, he said: "On ihe oontrary,
the Republican sentiment iu Para, as indicated by the termB of the congratulatory
despatcnes from the Governor to President
Pcixoto, at his inauguration, is stronger
lhan that of any other State in Brazil. On
that oocasion, the Governor, Dr. Lauro
Sodre, telegraphed to Feixoto: "If you
fall, I fall with you. I consider you the
true represent at ivt of  Republican  interests
iu Brazil."	
Still On 'ho Rocks.
San Francisco. Nov. 28.��� Lhe Bteamer
City of New York is partly on the rocks
and partly on a sandy beach of Point Bonita.
From her smoke stack aft she is under water,
and either that portion of the vessel has
broken away or else rocks have come up
through the hull and allowed it to sink till
the stern is resting on the sandy bottom.
The waves had gone down considerably this
morning, but still the awell waa too great to
permit of a tug lying alongside. Every one
ou the water trout, except the Pacific Mail
Company, have given up all hopes of saving
the ship. 	
Pacific Cable to British Columbia.
San FbAHOUOO, Nov. 2S.���Tho Bulletin
says thia evening, iu the course of an editorial article on the proposed Paoific cable
to connect Australia with British Columbia,
the London Times remarks "The principal
statue of the cable from the Imperial point
of view, is for political purposes, and it ia
evident that the line which paaaea at any
portion of its courae entirely into the handa
of a eoreigu power might become perfectly
useless in the event of complications
arising in that power. The significance of this remark lies in the fact that the
propoaed route of the cable is from New
Caledonia lo Fiji Islands, thence by Samoa,
Honolulu and the Fanning Islands to Vancouver. It ia clear that English interests
are opposed to the annexation of Hawaii by
the U. S. An admiral has pointed out that
ths Islands are of the greatest importance
to either Great Britain or the U. S., from a
Naval point of view. Their possession
would certainly be a strong point for thia
oonntry in the event of war with England".
Tired of Being a Princess.
San Francisco, No. 28���Richard Day,
confidents! secretary to John McKay, when
seen i his morning about the despatch from
Loudon, sta ing that Princess Colonna,
daughieruf Mrs. McKay had applied for
separation from her husband, said
the news was quite a surprise to
him, being the first he had heard
of the matter, but, he did not wish
to eay anything further than that Mr. McKay, who ia at, present in New York, will
doubtless be able to give the public whatever Informal ion ho deemed desirable. The
news oaused quite a surprise to society people, many of whom, however, expressed
themselves as gratified at the action of the
Princess, who has endured the cruelties of
the Prince for so long a time.
Trouble In the Spanish Cabinet.
Paris, Nov. 28.���A despatch to the
Tempt, from Madrid, eayi that new differences have arisen in the Spanish cabinet.

other ministers, oppose Senor Moret, Foreign Minister, and Senor Puigcerver, Minister of the Interior, on aakiug the Cortes to
approve the treatiea of commerce modifying
the protective tariffe.
Duke of Lelnster Dangerously III.
Dublin, Nov. 28.���The Duke of Leinster
il dangerously ill with typhoid fever. This
evening he was said to be dying.
She Shonld Have Done so Long Ago.
San Francisco, Nov. 28.���Several of
John W. McKay's associates of early days
when spoken today in relation to the
Colonna separation case expressed the opinion that his step daughter had taken a wise
step and that it was one that the unfortunate woman should have taken long ago.
One of the evening paprs has ths to
say; "Whether the experiences of thia
California girl as the wife of a nobleman will serve as a lesson to other
American heiresses, whoseonlyambitionis to
wed a tilled foreigner is a matter of considerable doubt,for the habit is too firmly fixed
to be easily cured. One thing, however,
there can be no doubt that the Princeaa
could have found far more real happiness in
the quiet little town of Downieville, where
she first saw the light of life, than has ever
been allotted to her in the gilded lulls of
Italian Royalty."
Infer.ial Machine Sent the Emperor.
Berlin, Nov. 28.���It has been learned
that the infernal machine which was sent to
the Emperor William consisted of a wooden
box such as ia used for dominoes, at one end
of which, near the bottom, was fixed a brass
case charged with nitro-glycerine and so
arranged aa to be fired by an ordinary percussion cap when the box
should be opened. The remaining
apace in lhe box was tilled with loose gunpowder. Anarchist placards have recently
ueeu posted in Orleans, the authors of
which are believed to include a number of
German Socialists who are regarded as the
probable senders of the boi received by the
Emperor and the Chancellor. The police of
Orleans are busily engaged in searching for
anarchists who may have been guilty of the
Will Reinstate Evicted Tenants.
London, Nov. 28.���Mr. Gladstone
writing to the Mayor of Cork in response to
resol Jtion -vdopted at a recent.* meeting aayr,
that he is conferring With Chief Secretary Morley regarding the re-instatement of
evicted tenants, i'lns is taken as an indication that a bill floating with the matter
will be iiitm luced in Parliament.
Must Enlarge His Parllamentry Bases*
Rome, Nov. 28.���This evaning Signor
Zanadelli had an interview with Signor Son-
nino, the leader of the centre, with reference
to the formation of a Cabinet. Signor Son-
nino, asked that Signor Fortia, the Radical
be excluded from ihe new ministry aud that
an increase <d taxatnau to the amount of
fifty inii'ion lire be made an item of the
new Government's programme, Signor
Fortis on being interviewed this evening by
a representative ot the United Press said
"I Bhall remain true to my expressed principles. If Signo, Zauadelli wishes to obtain
aocord with the Right Centre through Signor
Sonnino an arrangement is not possible. To

parliamentary basis".

of senators this evening. It is believed that
the new cabinet will not be definalely formed for several days.
The Dead Lock Continues.

M. Raynall and conferred with him for an
hour. It was rumored that they were forming a Cabinet, but this laoks confirmation.
In the lobbies of the Chamber of Deputies,
this afternoon, there is a strong feeling in
favor of the recall of M. Constans. This, it
is said by mauy, would be the best course,
but l'resulent Carnor's personal animosity
against the e\-Minister renders recall unlikely. The Chamber fm half an hour today debated ttie contested elections. It
then adjourned uutil Thursday.
On tho Rtght Track.
DUBLIN, Nov. 28,���The polioe have obtained evidence connecting the dynamitera
with the murder of Reid. The dynamitera

go to America, giving him seven pounds to

up ia the streets until they reached the
lonely spot where Reid's body was fonnd
by the police.

While the industrials were declining, the
operators in the room were quietly
picking up the other stocks, and
even London bought a little. When the
selling of Sugar ceased, the market began to
move up, and in the afternoon was decidedly strong. The favorable October statements of the St. Paul and Chicago, and
Burlington and Quincy, proved powerful
aids to those operating for higher prices.

Making* the Beat of Theae Glorious
Autumn Days ��� other Notes - Fresh
Do you wish to be healthy?���
Then keep the house sweet;
As soon as you're up
ISuiike each blanket and sheet.
Leave tbe beds to get fresh
On the close crowded floor;
Let tbe wind sweep riirht through-
Open window and door.
The bad air will rush out
Ax the :; n al air comes in,
Just us ^' ii ln-'ss is stronger
And better than sin.
Do this, it's soon done;
In the fresh morning air;
It will lighten your labor,
And lessen your care.
You are weary���no wonder,
There's v eight and there's gloom
Hanging heavily round
Iu each over-lull room.
Bs sure all the trouble
Is profit and gam,
For there's head-ache and heart-ache,
And fever and [min,
Hovering round, settling down
In the cloi-euess and beat:
Let the wind sweep right through
Till the air's fresh and sweet;
And nv re cheerful you'll feel
Thro,' tho toil of the day;
More lvfresli'd you'll awake
When the night's passed away.
Autumn Floral Study.
The most glorious days of autumn are
With us. The sky sheds a mellow light over
the yellowing hills and the gorgeous, red
crimson, bronze and yellow tinted draperied
Tbe red alder berries are now asking us to
gather their branches for storage in a cool
place, that they may be preserved to brighten
our evergreen decorations at Christum-:.
Clematis should aw gataered soon as it is in
full bloom and draped about ourroaaaa tLere
to ripen out in its fleecy beauty; mat wo fob
ripens out of doors does not "hold itself" as
long nor as well as that plucked earlier.
Golden rod and other   immortelles, with
linli huod leaves from the now radiant fo i��
���at, will brighten rooms for months.
The garden flowers must now be saved
from an early death by frost, by removal
to sheltered corners on the piazza, or into the
green-houses, or the windows of the rooms
they are to adorn the coming winter.
Re pot the smaller coleuses in rich earth?
out back each branch, and give them the
sunniest windows and a m -derate amount of
water daily. Shade and too much moisture
will ruin tbe beauty of tbe choicest folia.a
If one has a handsome tub full of thrifty,
healthful plants and ivies, it can be taken into the house as it is, without re-potting, and
with proper care oan be kept as thrifty
all winter as it has been In summer; to do
this, first cut off the end of each ivy vine, aa
far as it looks delicate and the leaves somewhat infrequent.
Then remove every bud from the geraniums and other flowering plants in the tub;
this checking of the blooms for a few weeks
gives tho needed rest to the roots, and they
cantuus irive all their time and strength to
the strain placed upon them, while they are,
as it were, becoming acclimated, adjusting
their habits to the change from an outdoor
to an indoor atmosphere.
After taking off each bud, go carefully
over the tips of every branch and stem; if
the blanch is short, say four inches, cut it
back one inch; if long, two, or even three
inches may he nipped off, If then, tho plant
is not symmetrical, cut off, if need be to make
it so, whole branches.
If a plant does not grow shapely naturally, make it so by daily pruning. No plants,
except calla-i and other water lilies, will do
well in mud puddles. When the florist says
certain plants "need to be kept moist," lie
does not mean that the earth in the pot sh ould
be kept in a state of mud.
Except "water-babies," plants need to
really dry off occasionally; not enough so
that the leaves shall wilt, but to become
moderately dry.
A careful observation of Nature's treatment is better worth observing than the
reading of the ways and method. If thought
aud common sense are brought to the nutter,
then one can learn from, rather thau blindly
copy, their neighbor's methi-d.
As tbe ooleus must have sunny windows,
so must, the lovely ferns and mosses have the
cool, shady ones.
11 there are no sunny windows, do not attempt impossibilities by trying to have beautiful foliage plants. If there is not a oo d,
north window, do not try ferns and mosses.
Figs will not grow on thistles, norcoleus hold
its rich crimson or bronze tints in a northern
t-xposui'e; nor ferns keep green and fresh in a
Flowers, like children, will display ao unkempt stamp if neglected; oi* what is m bad

The Woman who does either of these will
be seen looking in idiotic despair at oither
plants or children on occasion, and will lit
hoard saying over tbe tl' st and to thu latter,
"I never have any luck with my plants."
Aud to tho children willsay, weakly, "You
surprise me!" when the intermittently trained little ones forget that to-day "company

SAMUEL M. ROBINS, Superintendent
Luoretia Borgia Rehabilitated.
The distinguished art critic and historian
of the Renaissance, M. Charles Yriarte, haa
attempted in the Figaro what may be called
the rehabilitation of Luoretia Borgia.
Thanks to Viotor Hugo and Meyerbeer, the
public in general has not a very high opinion
of the daughter of Pope Alexander VI, anf
the sister of Csnsar Borgia. But all through
so-called history runs a strong current of
legend, which is apt to sweep away the
facts and leave a substratum of fancy,
"Was Lucretia Borgia really a Messalina
and a Julia)" asks M. Yriarte, "holding
the cup of poison with one hand and the
poniard with the other? If we study
the annalists of the period���Gregorovius,
for instance���we find no trace of poison or
poniard; no,more than of improper love���at
most seven love letters, written to Bembo,
poet and Cardinal, which English misses may
read without the use of a fan, in the glass
case of the Ambrosiana of Milan, where also
is preserved piously the lock of hair before
which Byron went into ecstasies. Lucretia
Borgia was married at 13 to a nephew of the
Sforza, Giovanni, Lord of Pesaro, who was
SM. Owing to the irruption of the French
into Italy, soon after their union in 1493, the
course of politics caused an annulment of the
marriage, to which the Vatican lent itself
with the cynical morality of the epoch.
To revenge himself the outraged husband
launched against Luoretia's father a frightful accusation, which may be regarded as the
foundation of subsequent legends. The
young beauty became henceforth the shuttlecock of politios. Being in need of the alliance of Aragon, who was reigning at
Naples, the Pope made a union between
his daughter and a natural son of Alphonse
II. King of Naples. He was reputed to be
the handsomest prince of his day in Italy,
being at that time 17 and his wife 18 years
of age. Owing to the jealousy of Luoretia's
brother, Ceesar Borgia, the handsome
Alphonse was strangled in the apartments of his father-in-law, Alexander
VI. In 1500 Lucretia wedded for the third
time another Alphonse, son cf Hercules,
Duke of Ferrara. At that time she was 20,
and remained to her death, seventeen years
later, the "pearl of spouses," Apart from
the fleeting breath of scandal, which attributed to the Princess two lovers at the
court of Ferrara, the chroniclers find nothing
whereof to accuse tho gulden-haired beauty.
Ho (says M. Yriarte) that we are forced to
the conclusion that all her manifold wickedness must have been committed betweon the
years of 13 and 20, a supposition not easily
credible even in that precocious epoch.���St.
James' Gazette.
llie Food of the Coming nan.
The World's Advance-Thought is a monthly
periodical published in Portland, Oregon.
One of Its advanced thoughts is that mankind should not live on the "products of
slaughter." It says: "Festering animal
carcasses, displayed and eaten, produce the
bacteria of most diseases; and tbe animal
thoughts such food generates develops increased energy in the bacteria." "In tbe
generations to come the physical organism
will become so refined that the present kinds
of solid food will be too gross for it to assimilate. "

A Itemnrkable Dog Story.
John Templeton is a blacksmith who owns
a fine specimen of the English mastiff. Recently Mr. Templeton was working at his
forge, putting a new steel in a pick. The
new steel was slightly burned in tho heating,
and, instead of welding, flew in half a dozen
One piece struck the blacksmith just above
the right eye with such force as to fasten
itself firmly. The blacksmith staggered and
fell backward.
How long he was uncoivseious he does not
,know, but when he revived the dog lay almost in the middle of the shop crying almost
like a human lieing, and rubbing his jaws in
the dust of the floor.
The piece of steel that had struck Mr
Templeton "ay a short distance from the dog.
The faithful brute had seized the hot steel
with his teeth and diawn it from the frontal
bone of Mr. Templeton's head. The dog's
mouth was found t, la tally burned.

Look out for the new serial story which
will appear in The Daily Tet.kgram in a
few days. We want to give everybody who
does not now take the paper an opportunity
to do so before starting the story.
At last the committee on Tariff Reform at
Washington have handed into Congress their
report, and the public may now feast upon
one of the most startling pieces of legislation ever enacted in the United States.
During the late Presidental contest the
public demanded and Cleveland promised
that the tariff should be reduced and reformed, but the most ardent free trader
could not have hoped for so sweeping a
change as the committee's report recommends.' The Canadian Tariff Bill of
1879, promised by the late Sir John
A. Macdonald on the hustings of
1878 amply fulfilled the trust con-
cnutidcil in him by the people of Canada.
But the consternation caused at that time,
affecting aa it did, not only the people of
Canada but those of the Mother Country as
well, by the increase of import dutieB from
an average of 174 Per cent, to one of 35 per
cent., must sink into insignificance on the
appearance of the bill presented at Washington on Monday. Uncle Sam haa put on
his coat, the eagle has ceased to scream,
and no longer will they stint themselves
upon the products of the land waved over
by the stars and stripes. Tho United States
has for a quarter of a century been the most
highly protected nation on the face of the
globe. With a duty averaging about
85 per cent. upon the price of
goods imported from foreign lands,
she has sought to live within herself and
Bhut out trade with other nations but has
now succumbed to tbe inevitable.
The report reduces the bounty from 85 to
35 per cent, on dutiable imports, placing
the goods used by the great mass of the
people on a rate even lower than that, while
bread stuffs and the actual necessaries of
life are hereafter to be admitted free, except
in the case of bread stuffs imported from
countries putting duties on like products.
Here is where Congress oomes begging to
Canada. During the past three years the
Canadian Government has sought to meet
the powers at Washington half-way and
aeveral timea have our Ministers journeyed
to the Capitol to confer with ths American
Government as to the placing upon the free list
just auch articles as the Committee here recommend, but "for ways that are dark, and
tricks thatatc vain the Yankee Nation is peculiar." Instead of coming out manfully and
saying as the Canadian Government did, if
you remove the duty on breadstuffa we will,
they school boy like say if you keep the
duty on our goods you oan't Bell yours in
our market. They now parctically ask
Canada to reciprocate in the tariff just what
Canada haa asked them to do many timea.
Rastus Wiinaii and other Grit orators will
no longer weep for the Canadian farmerforlo!
and behold! the fruit of the Canadian hen
is to cross the lines a free passenger. The
framers of Ontario will Benefit considerably
by the drop in the duty on barley and horses
which since the McKinley Bill, have been
practically shut out from their neareat
The miners of tho Sudbury diatriot will
be delighted to learn that the prndncta of
the niokle minea will go into the American
Union free, while the people of thia Province will eventually greatly profit by the
removal of the coal duty and the placing
npon the free liat silver-lead ores so abundantly found in the Kootenay district. The
Eastern States will profit by free bread
stuffs and cheaper Canadian barley, while
the States on the i-acinc coast will reap
their benefit from the rich coal fields of
British Columbia. Thus does international
trade work to the benefit of all people so
well demonstrated by farmers at a threshing
Tbe Canadian National Policy haa been
mainly instrumental in causing the downfall
of the American tariff wall aa waa anticipated by Sir John A. Macdonald and hia
Government fifteen yeara ago. All thinga
come to thoae who wait.	
The conference held by the Government
with the labor delegatea at Viotoria on Saturday has ended. This being a meeting
held with closed doors, the views expressed
by the delegates are not at hand, and of
course cannot be divulged by the representatives, else tbe doors would not have
been closed. While in some cases the press
may be unduly excluded from meetings the
report a of which ought in the intereat of the
public be given to the press, we admit the
advisability of the public being excluded
in cases of this kind. This was a hearing
by the Government given the representatives
of labor in order that they might the
more freely express their views upon the
difficulties and disputes between employers
and employed. The Government it must be
presumed ia anxious to meet such difficulties
with a Bill formed after hearing the true
fact from both parties. In order to obtain
auch true repreaeneations, it is undoubtedly
necessary that the greatest secrecy should
prevail, until        all        the        details
can be arranged and a measure agreed upon
which can be submitted to that wider discussion which it would necessarily get after
publication in the newspapers. It is an old
and true saying that " too many cooks spoil
the broth," and an opportunity should
always be given in matters of this kind to
produce a well-cooked dish of soup, before
the public are aaked to taate it.
Although the despatchea of laat night say
the conference ended in naught, we cannot
but hope that the Government having been
taken into the confidence of the Labor
Union, will profit by such discussion and
enact such legislation at the next session as
will meet this momentous question.
While we sincerely regret that any fric
tion has arisen between the delegates and the
Government, we could not? expect any satis
factory result from the hearing of only one
party to the question.
So far as we can learn the Government
has not as yet consulted the employers in
regard to f he matter and we would impress
upon the Premier not to loose sight of the
fact that there are two sides to be heard
and when the employers are taken into con-
consultation and a consensus of opinion
formed upon the facta presented by both
aidea, then only oan a satisfactory plan be
framed to meet the difficulties which employer and employed, daily have to contend

Among the number are Philip Dwyer, Dick

White five times in one hour.
Strike Nearing an End.
Jkh-sky City, Nov. 28.���The atrike is apparently fizzling out here. The officials
olaim that the men are beaten and the
Booner they accept the fact the better for
themselves. Some old switchmen have returned to their places. Tha engineers' and
firemen's places are being rapidly filled.
Passenger trains are running nearly
on time, and freights are moving
slowly. All the latter are guarded
by police. Two coal traina arrived during
the night. No trouble has occurred and the
officials confidently expect the strike soon to
be declared off. The engineers on the Jersey Central complain that the safety of their
traina is impeded by the way in which the
nonunion engineers of the Lehigh road die
regarded signals when running over the Jer
aey Central Railway.

Trial of Carruthers for Murder ��� The
Labor Conference Comes to Naught.
Victoria, Nov. 28*���The murder trial of
Arthur Carrutbera, member of the Salvation
Army, who killed a Chinese fellow-worker
on the 6th inat., opened thia morning and
will be continued to-morrow before Judge
Walkem in the Aaaize court. Mr. Davie
Attorney-General, ia prosecuting, assisted
by Bod well k Irving, who are retained by
the highbinder order, to which the deceased
belonged.    Tho plea ia Belt-defense.
The conferences between the Government
and representatives of labor have come to
naught. The Government thia evening,
answering the resolutions paased by the
delegates laat Saturday with the information that, while they are disposed to meet
them in reaaon, ao long as labor organizations adopted the despotic aod arbitrary
tone maintained in the present interview,
neither the Britiah Columbian nor any other
government oould treat with them.
Her Navy Far Below the Point Ensuring
Absolute Confidence.
London, Nov. 28.���Tho Marquis of Salisbury delivered an address before the National Conservative Union  iu Cardiff this evening.    Referring to the coal  strike,  he said
he   rejoiced   over   the   settlement   of   the
trouble as the conlliot was  digging a chasm
between classes   without   whose agreement
the prosperity of the nation waa impossible.
News from foreign count riea, he  continued,
ia always euch aa must make England reflect
upon her position, duties and dangers.   Two
nations were without  s* .vernmenta   and an
other waa bankrnpt.    It was a matter of the
first importance for Englacd  uot to depend
for her eafety   upon   the  good government
and good will of other   nations.   She   must
be in auch a condition that,   whatever happened, ahe would always be able to depend
upon     her     own   fleet    and    her   own
strong     arm.       It    ought    not    to     be
imagined that England's  position   was   absolutely secure.    As a matter   of   fact,  her
navy was far below the point   ensuring absolute confidence.    He pictured the effect of
an unforeseen foreign combination   securing
St. George's channel.    The calamity resulting to English commerce would   not be recovered for generations.    He drew this picture without any purpose of   alarm   to  the
people.    In view of such facts it   was   with
feeling of deep dismay that he saw that the
Government was spending all  ita   foroe   on
measures which  nobody heard of ten years
ago and the importance of which was only a
fioton  of   tho   imagination.    The   politioal
situation was, he did   not   doubt,   one   of
great complexity, but regarding  the parish
councils   franchise,   he   had   never   heard
of any movement of the   rural   population
showing    that    they    desired     it.     The
only   construction he oould   place   on  the
aotion of the Government was that they desired to obtain the opinion ot  the  electors,
not upon Home Rule, but upon half a dozen
measures of different kinds at the same time
That being the case, he hoped the  House of
Lords had already virtually said:    "We believe the English people are against  Home
Rule, and until they obtain the approval of
the country, you will not overcome  the resistance of the House of  Lorda."    In  concluding the speaker aaid that  the country
waa in as much danger in being surprised as
in being openly overcome.    The cause of
the integrity of the Empire had not near
been won.    It behooved them, therefore, to
be constantly on the alert, lest Gladstone;
seeking to fulfill hia numeroua pledgea, succeeded in wresting from Parliament his will.

coal, lumber, salt and iron ore on the free

also provides for the extermination of
bounty by degrees. As a rule the tariff has
been made the lowest upon oheaper goods
of necessary use. No duty higher than 45
per cent, has been left on manufactured
wool. A gradual reduction is to be made
on the woollen schedule, so that at the end
of five years the highest duty will be forty

cotton schedule. Metals on the schedule
are largely cut. The duty on steel has been
reduced more than 50 per oent. Agricultural implements are also placed on the free
Chairman Wilson of the congressional
committee says there is no truth in the report that the President offered to pr ovide
him with a luorative judicial appointment if
he should be defeated for congress at the
Autumn elections aa a result of placing coal
on the free list. Wilaon baa had no consultation with President Cleveland regarding the
Chairman Wilson, in hia report issued

features are firat, the adoption  where ever
Sraotioable of advalorem inatead of specific
uties; seoond, by freeing from taxes those
freat materials of industry that lie at the

In the chemical schedule a number of articles are transferred to the free list; the
most important ia aulphurio acid. The duty
on castor oil is reduced from 85 lo 35 cents

Rome of the Fashionable Trips Which
Are Now In Popular Favor.
"Just let a woman stop dancing for
even a season, and she will find that
she is completely out of the running so
far as new steps are concerned," said a
society girl who, being in mourning for
the last year, discovered when she once
more entered   a   ballroom that  styles
change in dancing as rapidly and completely as in gowns. "Now, there is
the two-step, something altogether
new, which is a perfect mystery to me.
How anyone manages to do it
with any grace whatever is a wonder, for two slides one way and
two slides another in perfect time
to the music is not as easy as it sounds.
But have you seen the Oxford minuet?
It is perfectly lovely; so quaint, you
know, and it is stately and hoppy at
the same time, for it combines the
principles of minuet and polka. It is
danced by two, man and woman, of
course. They take hold of the hands
and in four times do the steps of the
minuet. After the bow that is part and
parcel of all minuets the time changes
to a much more rapid measure and away
they go helter skelter in a mad polka.
Oh! it is just lovely," she sighed, though
it must be confessed the description,
though very fetobinjj. did not convey to
the uninitiated mind of the New York
World man any idea ot anything so ravishing; still one never can tell how a
thing goes until he tries for himself. Therefore, it may be all its
ardent admirers claim for it.
Other round dances that are popular
favorites are the Yorke, Berlin, Esmeralda and military schottishe; all pretty,
graceful dances, and then, of course,
the never dying yet frequently murdered waltz survives in different phases
of hops, skips, jumps and glides, but
ever the most prominent feature of any
ballroom programme, notwithstanding
the little eccentricities of its would-be
dancers. The lancers have passed into
oblivion, but the polka quadrille, which
permits of the Oxford minuet and Berlin being introduced into the figures, is
to be the sole square dance approved of
this winter by the fashionable dancing
Times change and we change with
them. Dances take on new phases, but
as long as music and young people exist there will be no prettier or more
popular diversion than dancing, no
matter what form it chooses to assume.
Siamese Anlmnla wit It stranire Peculiarities���Fellm^ Fight with �� Hon.
United States Minister Boyd was
recently home on a leave of absence
from Bangkok, "The American legation at Siam was composed of very
curious members," said he to a San
Francisco Examiner man as he stroked
the tawny coat of his three hundred
dollar a pair Siamese cats in the Occidental basement. "You see the government makes me no allowance for a
corps of secretaries and under dignitaries like the tony missions receive,
aud 1 had to force a little style with the
best native material on hand. So I
drafted into the service of Uncle Sam
an assortment of cheap but sagacious
assistants, who helped to furnish
dignity to the establishment without
auy severe strain on its exchequer. You
can do this sort of thing readily in
Siam, where the freest sociability
prevails between the people and the
gifted menagerie that Inhabits the
island. For a watchdog, in ease 1

hud an intellectual little dog from the
king's kennel. He comes of a family
trained for untold generations to play
this role, and when placed on sentinel
duty he could be fully trusted, night or
day. to cover his charge with entire
success. Nobody but myself or wife
eould approach my desk or anything
that he was left to guard without having a severe attack of remorse. Then
came a marvelous pair of cats. They,
too, came of lofty pedigree and are extremely rare, but their most practical
value in Siam comes from their
merciless warfare on snakes. Bangkok
is a crowded capital, a sort of Venice,
largely built over the water.
"The entire country back of it is infested with enormous boas, from fifteen
to twenty-five feet in length. When
their country board gets unpalatable
these monsters stroll down into the
Bangkok in search of supplies. Their
pet dainties are pigs, chickens, geese
and eats. No, their bite is not venomous, but they do swift and deadly ex-
eution with their giant coils. Instinctively, therefore, the cat recognizes bis
arch enemy, but you don't know what
a ferocious prize fight is until you can
seen one of these small, tawny felines
make an unerring spring aud fasten
himself to the back of the boa's neck.
To this vulnerable point he holds like
grim death, scratching meanwhile with
the wildest tiger-like fury, till the huge
monster throws up the sponge. They
are gentle anil good natured, these amber-eyed beauties, until Mr. Boa comes
around, when they suddenly develop
the ferocity of ten devils. It was a
reptile seventeen feet long that one of
this fighting species laid out in my legation yard one day. You must understand that Siam is an outdoor and open-
window clime, and this leads to sociability on a very democratic scale. You
never can tell the mixed character of
angels, four footed and otherwise, you
are liable to entertain at night. For
instance, we had a pair of baby sun
bears, gentle as kittens, on the legation
pay roll in some position of honor.
They passed the day in the banyan
trees and dropped down about midnight to call on their friends. We
found them under our bed one morning,
and then Mrs. Boyd thought the hour
had arrived to draw the line on beasts.

One of die reminiscences which the
<Juee:i loves to relate is of the time
when Louis Napoleon was her guest
aboard the royal yacht Victoria and
Albert. The French monarch praised
the sumptuous furnishings of the vessel,
aad confessed that he had never felt able
to afford so great luxury. "But for you,
madame,' said he gallantly, "you are
queen of the seas!" This compliment
tickled the Queen mightily. The title was
a new one, and it hit her fancy. Victoria
is a great stickler at formality; she will
not tolerate anything like a breach of
custom. Thy custom is that whenever
the queen visits a town she shall before
leaving that town knight the Mayor
thereof. The form of dubbing a knight
is exceedingly simple. The candidate
kneels before Her Majesty; she asks his
name; he gives it simply "Andrew
Jones," or whatever it may be; the
Queen touches him with a sword and
says: "Rise, Sir Andrew Joues." On one
occasion the Queen was about to knight
the Mayor of one of the si-aller cities
she had been visiting. The poor fellow
was scared almost out of his wits. He
was so nervous that when the Queen asked his name he answered. "Mr Thomas
Hopkins." Whereupon Her Majesty, incensed at his breach of custom and making no allowance for the poor man's
trepidation, exclaimed. "Rise, Mr.
Thomas Hopkins," and throwing the
sword aside, sailed indignantly^out of th*

The Ideal Sanitary House.
Tbe picture of the ideal sanitary house ia a
pleasing one. Tbe bouse will stand facing
the sun, on a dry soil, in a wide, clean, amply
sewered, substantially paved street, over ���
deep, thoroughly ventilated aud lighted
cellar. Tiiu floor of the cellar will be cemented, the walls nud ceiling thickly plastered
and white-washed with lime every year, that
the house may uot act as a chimney to draw
into its cli.iaihiirs micro-organisms from tbe
earth. Doors aud windows will be generous
In size, so as to admit of pleuty of air. The
outside walls, if of wood or brick, will be
kept thickly painted, not to shutout the air,
but for the sake of dryness.
The inside walls will lie plastered smooth,
painted uud varnished. Interior wood work,
including floors, will be varnished, Movable
rugs, which can be shaken daily in the open
air���not at the doors or out of the windows-
will cover tho floors. White linen shades,
which must bo clean or they become unsightly, will protect the wiudovs. The furniture
will be plain, without U*. -ot jry. Mattresses will be covered with oiled silk; blankets,

will constitute the bedding. There wiil be

The Girls Who Hide.
Tbe riding masters say that the sudden
���nd unusual popularity ;>f equestrianism
���mong women can be traced directly to
the physicians. A very few years ago
women were ;r vned upon wheu they
suggested hoiseoick exercise to their
doctors. Even the most advanced physicians
considered that riding was too wearing and
violent for women of frail physique, and tbe
horses that sold best were small, gentle and
broken to a "single-foot" gait.
After animals of this type had been ridden
extensively for five or six years physicians
generally learned that riding them waa a
little more wearing on women than lolling
in a rocking-chair. Gradually "single-
footers" were abandoned and horses broken
to a trot were taken up. Nine- Unit lis of the
women iu Central Park nowadays ride
horses that have a gait which men would
find irksome.
The result justifies tbe violence of the
exercise. No more striking groups of women can he found in town thau the straight-
backed, II* he, clear-skinned, bright-eyed,
healthy ami athletic horse-women who meet
at tbe riding-schools aud start out for a
morning trot in the park between the hours
of 8 and 11 every day but Sunday.���New

A ni-r-crmnn'a eraser Idea.
A listmguished clergyman has recently
Mndftinncd ull social and polite fictions.
When, for instance, a stupid bore calls upon
you, he thinks you ought to tell him that you
are not glad to see him, but that, on the contrary, you are sorry to see him, and tha
you wish he would go. This sort of brutal
frankness would not do in th* pulpit, as ���
critic of the clergyman has pointed out. A
clergyman might as well quit preaching who
should begin his sermons as follows : " My
���elfish, mostly ignorant and despicable
hearers, I should like to call your prayerful
attention to my text, but I know most of
you are thinking about other matters and
that you do not come hsre te learn piety,
but rather to show your good clothes and
maintain   a  social   position."���New York

"I need a pair o' ,.boon.

Then Sandy hi tfcc.-e words, replied:
"I'm sure I can no spar'd,
.Sae come wi1 me to my aiii house
Until I mow my beard.
"It wadna' do to gang from hame,
Just like a tousy tyke,
It's best when meeting unco folk
Aye to look purpose like."
���So off they went to Gaudy's house,
His wife, Meg, said, "I'm willing."
When he got ilress'd quo' she "Ye look
Far brighter than a shilling.
"Now gang awa���Just gang your ways

Is whiter than the snaw.
"Guid guide us a', he looks sae braw,

4nd then she laiurhed as if she'd gane
Upon the road     sterical.
* *   *
The twasome now have ta'en Scotch leaw
And here I may relate
That Sandy had for years lived in        ���
The matrimonial state.
His wife, Meg, wns a canty wife,
And he did ne'er complain,
Although she kept her teapot prim'd
A' day on her jamb-stane.
Hut Deacon Smith ne'er had a wife,
He lived wi' Jean, hi3 aunty,
Though she was auld, yet I am tauld,
Her virtues were not scanty.
Jean aften said, "I might been wed
Had I not been sae nice."
But that is false; for deil a man
Had ever spiered her price.
' And now to catch a man," she said,
*'I wadna' cock my cap,
Although he poured a mint o' gold
And silver in my lap."
Joan further said the sight o' men
Did nothing but provoke her.
And now at last she had become
A most habitual smoker.
To prove this fact, when I was young,
And had but little sense,
I saw her smoking amang reek
Voluminous and denso.

Now when our heroes reached the towi.
They wandered here and there,
They saw the sights, and they agreed
They were beyond compare.
Chey walked 'long Princess street, and tMt
Stood rooted to the spot,
When they beheld tbe monument
To our Sir Walter Scott.
The deacon took his bonnet off;
I would have done the same;
He said, "He stands the Giant-King
Upon the hill of fame. "
They next stood on the castle rock,
And when they looked around
They saw the hills of Lammermoor���
My own, my natal ground.
They saw the Forth glide on and on
Unto the German ocean.
And then they stared at auld Mons Mep��
With wonder and devotion.
The deacon said:   "Look at. her mouti-
She must have been a roarer I
When she weut eff I'm unco sure
Pd hate to stand afore her.
"Some folk  may   brag  'bout  knowledasj-
But on this monster scannin'
We may conclude that power is far,
Far greater in a cannon."
They climbed up Arthur's seat, 6yne the*
Called in by Hollyrood,
And saw the spot where Rizzio fell,
And where Queen Mary stood.
At length the deacon said: "I'm tires".
And fairly fagged outright;
I think we'll gang and take a rest
And no gang hame this night."
Quo' Sandy: "Man, I'm just as tir'd
As if I'd louped a linn,
Sae faith we'll gang and rest till mor��
Doon at the Harrow inn."
Sae off they went unto the inn,
And after they were fed,
The landlord struck a light and they
Soon jumpit into bed.
The deacon soon began to snore
And make his lips play poof,
That frigliten'd e'en the very cats
That gamboled on the roof.
These sounds made Sandy turn and twist
And made his pores perspire,
He started up then drew a breath
And bellowed out "Fire! Are!"
The deacon bounded out of lied
And half asleep roared, "Aunty,
Oh, woman, where in a' the earth
Have ye put my portmanteau?"
* ���   ��
Now when the deacon reached his aunt
Upon the verge of morn,
He roared: " I've got a fright, the wars*
I've had since I was born."
The deacon's aunty was in bed; ,
She cried: " Hand me my frock
And I'll get up, and deacon, dear,
We'll ha'e a rousin' smoke."
When Sandy reached his home he eris��*>
" Meg, Mag! the deacon's lost I"
" 0, never mind," quo' she, " sit loon
And we'll ha'e tea and toast."

Fanners must get out of the runs their
ancestors were iu. They are forced to do
this to keep up with the times. Co-operation
is one of fiiese methods. There are to-day
nearly .**��� creameries in successful operation
in the State of Connecticut. With private
dairies six times the capital aud labor are required that are needed by these Co-operative
creameries, aud most dairy butter sells for
from two to five cents less per pound. The
creamery enforces system and cleanliness in
all particulars. By this means a more uniform
article is produced. The lower grades of
butter are being rapidly driven from the
market, and some first-class grocers will
handle uo dairy butter. Tho day for fancy
prices for butter is past and fanners must
sottJedown to business and work together.
Butter-making is hotter calculated to bring
up our farms than keeping stock. The pre-
sent price of land is such that any young
man who is willing to deny himself as he
would iu the West can make farming a success here, and not may miles away from advantages eastern fanners can enjoy almost

this authority simply impracticable owing
to the marked difference in the requirements

The Nanaimo Pilots are principally
needed for the steam vessels engaged in the
Coast Trade, and they do not desire a Pilot
till after passing Race Rocks Light (inward)
while the deep laden sailing vessels
bound for Victoria from Great Britain,
require to take a Pilot noarer Cape
Flattery. It will therefore be apparent that one pilot boat could not do
justice to both services. The Straits below Race Rocks will average twenty miles
in width so that it would be difficult for a
steamer to know the exact locality of a
Pilot boat, especially at night, as there
would be very conflicting lights.
2. The Nanaimo authority is keenly alive
to the improprietory of vessels going
close to the entrance of Victoria harbor
although it has been done for many
years without an accident occurring. However to prevent a possible recurrence of the
San Pedro disaster thia authority has instructed their licenced pilots to board and
leave vessela in their direct route between
Race Rooks and Discovery or Trial Island,
which will be distant four to five milea from
Victoria. To effect this the Nanaimo pilots
have now a well-equipped pilot sloop to
cruise in tbat vicinity, aud the obtaining of
a suitable steamer for the use of the Nanaimo pilots iB now under consideration."
Your Commissioners are of opinion from
the above facts, that an attempt to operate
a joint boat would be inimical to the best
interests of shipping and would compel
many of the Nanaimo steamers to do without a pilot, aa there would be too much
delay and uncertainty of picking up the
pilot boat in the wide stretch between Race
Rocks and Cape Flattery. The present separate system ao far aa Nanaimo shipping is
concerned has given very general satisfaction, as no complaint haa been lodged with
this Authority."

The Olympla's Trial Trip.
Santa Bakbaua, Cal., Nov. 28.���Tbe
Ulympia made her third unsuccessful attempt to make the official trial trip in the
channel this morning, as yesterday's fog was
the cause of failure. Early in the day the
aky was clear in all directions, and the
cruiser got up steam to go over the courae.
After taking a 30-mile warming up spin
down the coast, she returned, aud just as
ahe waa about to cross the line a
bank of fug was encountered shutting
out tho beacons. The Olympia then
came iuto the harbor. Mr. Scott
aaya that the coal aupply is about exbauated
and tho veasel will have to go to San Fran-
ciaco to reooal. He ia much plaaaed with the
cruiser, and when the Olympia returns in
ten days, he says the public oan look for
atill greater speed than has already been attained. Tha vessel will reach San Franoisco
ou Wednesday morning.

Captain Wild Dead.
Portland, Mains, Nov. 28.���Captain
Marshal Perry Wild, known to almost every
actor of note in this country, died to-day
very suddenly. He was 02 years old. He
was in the employ of the Portland Steam
Packet Company as advertising agent.
Captain Wild, for a time, was on the Mis-
siaaippi River, first as pilot, then as the
commander of a steamer. When Charles
Dickena made his Amerioan tour he asked
Mr. Wild to go with him and to take the
management of the thousand and one minor
details. So well was Mr. Dickens satisfied
that ht sent him a personal letter at the
close of ths tour and added a very handsome
check to the salary he was to pay him.
The Accused up for Hearing���Case Postponed.
Montreal, Nov. 28.���The three young
French-Canadians, Mercier, Demontigny
and IVlland, charged with attempting to
blow up the Nelson monument in this city
with dynamite, were up before Judge De -
noyers this afternoon. The prisoners were
repreacnted by ex-Premier Mercier and
other counsel. They entered a formal plea
of uot guilty, and on the application of Mr.
Mercier, who appeared for his son, postponement was granted until Saturday next.
It is now reported that one of the principal
witnesses against the accused has left the
city, and a strong effort will be made to
delay the oase until public interest in it has
M. Raynall Declines.
Paris, Nov. 28.��� M. Raynall, has declined the request of President Carnot to
attempt to form a new Ministry. His refusal ia the general topio of conversation in
political circles this evening. M. Raynall,
leads the moderate opportunists and it is
fairly certain that he could command a good
majority. His refusal, therefore, is assumed
to indicate that President Carnot imposes
upon those whom he requests to undertake
the formation of a Cabinet, the condition
that the policy of concentration shall be
maintained in order to conciliate the Radicals, whereas M. Raynall and the other possible premiers look upon it as imperative
that the Ministry shall be a homogenioua
Thought to  Be the  ex-Bank Examiner.
San FitANi'isuo, Nov. 28.���Word haa been
received here by the United States Marshal
from the DiBtriot Attorney of New York
City asking for a minute description, as well
as a photograph, of the body now in the
morgue and supposed to be that of
August M. Scriba, the ex-bank examiner. The reason given for the request was that Scriba was wanted in New
York in a very important case in United
States Courts. The body was examined and
a photograph taken but the only mark of
note found was a large and dark mole about
an inch in diameter on the right arm just
below the elbow. The body is being embalmed in accordance with telegraphic instructions received last evening from Montrose, New York, and it ia presumed it will
be sent East for interment.
