Lord Aberdeen on Loyalty.
Montreal, April 20.���Lord and Lady
Aberdeen visited the Dufferin school this
morning. The children sang "God Save
the Queen" as the party entered the hall,and
Lord Aberdeen delivered a brief address,
explaining to his young hearers the significance of the word "loyrtty."
La_Pretse, a French paper, says that
Mgr. _inari has secured a document, signed
by all the Roman Catholic bishops of
CamA, containing an appeal to Her Majesty lilting that the imperial Parliament
shall amend the Manitoba School Act. Mgr.
Tache and the other bishops, it is added,
have come to this decision because they believe that the Canadian Parliament, owing
to its partisan nature, is powerless to do
anything for the Manitoba Catholics.
Dominion Capital Notes.
Ottawa, April 20.���The annual report of
the Militia Department, presented to Parliament to-day, speaks in commendatory
terms of the British Columbia artillery.
General Herbert is far from satisfied with
the militia generally. He makes important
suggestions tor improvement. He wants
forces on naper to be reduced and made
ffioieut, Pending the completion of the
E-quimal: wurks, to which they are alloted,
the modern heavy guns loaned by the Im-'
pei ial Governmeut will be used for drill
purposes.
Colonel Turnbull, of tbe Toronto cwalry
school, has been granted six months' leave

The Senate committee on the insolvency
bill appointed Hon. Mr. Bowell chairman.
They will meet next Thursday to hear representatives of the Board of Trade.
The House of Commons railway committee has decided to require all railway
promoters hereafter to file the plans and
maps of their proposed lines.
The whole day was wasted in the House
discussing whether or not all witnesses before the Public Accounts Committee Bhould
be sworn. Sir C. H. Tupper's amendments
favoring a limited application of the rule
was carried by 46 majority.
Sir John Thompson announced that the
Government would make representations to
the Manitoba authorities regarding certain
Roman Catholic petitions which asked the
redress of grievances.
Mr. McKay, M.P. for Hamilton, has declined to present a petition to the House of
Commons for the submission to the popular
vote of the question of Imperial connection
and annexation, aud has written a letter to
the labor organizations iu Hamilton whioh
sent the potiiion to him for presentation, in
which ho says: "I am too loyal a Canadian
to wish to change our connection with the
British Empire, and further, think the poo-
ple of Canada bj***. a most overwhelming
majority are of the same opinion as myself,
and t hat it would be a lasting reproof to
their loyalty to ask them to vote on the
question."
British Canadian Steamship   Service.
LONDON, Apt il 20.��� Referring to the proposed new fust line of ocean Bteamers bo-
tweeu England and Canada, the Pall Mall
Gazelle, says: "Already a Canadian line is
employing British-built ships in the Pacific
to maintain the communication to Japan
and China. If we have a demand from
Canada for first-class ocean steamers for the
Atlantic trade we shall have little to tear
fiom the hostile legislation of the Uuited
States. The new scheme is remarkable aB
combining for the first time the energies and
interests of two most important parts of the
Empire, namely ���Canada and Australia. It
will be a thousand pities if the United
Kingdom does not seize so rare an opportunity and accept the invitation to become a
third member of the partnership."

Poles on Strike Causing  Bloodshed and
Murder.
Detroit, April 20.���Wayne county's
sheriff lies iu a precarious con ition, his
body lacerated by the shovels of infuriated
men. Two laborers are dead and the number wounded is not yet definitely known.
These unfortunate conditions are the result
of a conflict which occurred at noon to-day
between 400 Poles anil Sheriff Collius and a
number of his deputies. The riot was
brought about by differences of opinion over
wageo to be p_l laborers by the city water
uun.mission for digging trenches for pipe-
laying in Grosse Pointe township, just east
of the city limits. The commissioners decided to pay by the cubic yard, but for the
past day or so 300 Poles had hung around
lhe vicinity declaring they would not work
nor allow others to unless paid ��1.50 per
day. No outbreak was anticipated, but as
a precaution Sheriff Collins aud five deputies
went to the scene to protect those who
wished to work. Work progressed on a
small scale during the morning, but Engineer Williams, becoming alarmed at the
aspect of things, consulted some of the com
missioners shortly before noon and was
instructed to quit work for the time being,
Before he returned, however, rioting began.
Sheriff Collins and Deputy Styskal, after
telephoning for reinforcements, began to
address the mob to pacify them. One of
the Poles began an opposition harangue.
The crowd thereupon started to annihilate
the officers and the handful of laborers at
work. At the advance the officers drew
their revolvers and fired over the strikers'
heads, but the mob came on and the next
volley was directed into the orowd. Then
the officers retreated slowly, firing as they
went. StiU the mob followed, one man
dealing the sheriff a vicious blow on the
lead with his shovel. Other officers,
laborers and a reporter escaped, all being
more or le-s pounded with shovels, but the
helpless sheriff was brutally attacked. The
mob then scattered, leaving the sheriff unconscious.    Two of   the Poles   were found,
Johu Piylat and a comrade, name unknown,
dead.      ''
Sheriff Collins, regained consciousness
shortly after 2 o'clock. He had a had gash
on the head, several cuts and bruises about
the body aud almost bled to death from a
lacerated leg. His doctors say to-night that
he will probably pull through.
During the afternoon twenty Poles were
arrested, which intensified the bitterness,
and the situation is being di cussed by
crowds of Poles in various parts of the city.
Extra officers are on duty to preserve the
peace.
Another shooting affray took place in the
rear of the municipal court building. A
orowd of Poles had congregated and Deputy
Sheriff Borneman recognized one of them as
one of the rioters. He started to arrest
him, when some one in the crowd fired a
revolver, hitting the Pole in the leg. Borneman couid not learn who fired the shot.
The C. P. R. Had to Pay.
Boston, April 20.���A queer case was
heard in the Supreme Court here.
"In July, 1893, Merton E. Brown was
killed near Seattle, Wash., and the remains
were sent home to Dexter, Me., in charge of
a cousin, H. B. Whitten. The remains
were first taken from a small town called
Mount Vernon to Seattle.
"At Seattle Whitten purchased two first-
class tickets for Dexter and started for home.
"At Huntingdon, B. O, the Canadian
Pacific road was taken, and, in the night,
tbe car containing the remains was switched
off and started for Montreal.
"The Canadian Pacific always requires a
permit beside a regular ticket for a corpse,
but of this Whitten was unaware.
"A change of cars was made at Montreal,
and, as Whitten could not be found easily,
the agent telegraphed to the Maine Central
agent at Dexter not to deliver the remains
until the fare had been paid.
"The remains arrived at Dexter and the
relatives were astonished at the presentation of a bill for $100, to be paid before they
could secure the remains. All arrangements
had been made for the funeral and the
funeral and the hearse were in waiting.
"The father of the deceased was greatly
enraged, and much indignation was caused
in town.    The funeral was postponed.
The railroad was to-day obliged to pay
damages. The Maine Central was only
agent of the Canadian Pacific, and lhe latter
will have to settle finally."

ANOTHER CHEMICAL DISCOVERY.
It   Promises  to be  the   Wonder of the
Ago.
Little Falls, April 20.���Leonard H.
Miller, who has for a year and a half been
engaged in experiments in organic chei
istry, has discovered a fluid which is so
paradoxical and mysterious in its properties
and powers as to constitute it a chemical
wonder. It is obtainable by infusion or distillation from a substance of vegetable origin, and has solvent power upon all sub*,
stances except those of a vitreous and fibrous
character and living animal tissues Iu the
form of an infusion but little concentrated
it attacks fteely all the base and fine metals
and their alloys, and completely dissolves
sulphur, kerosene, gluten, btcswax, graph-
i'e, bitumen, "ats and oils
I* is believed thut the action of this new
solvent up u sulphur will prove of the utmost importance in therapeutics, and there-
foie that it may be worth while to describe
the penomeua exhibited. Sulphur when
acted upon by this solvent rapidly parts
wiih its characteristic color and odor, and
upon evaporation is found to be largely
soluble in cold water, but upon decantation,
a residuum is discovered. Applying boiling
water to this residuum a very pungent solutionis obtained and a final residuum discovered, which has not been subjected to
experiment; it is of a clear gray color nnd
gives indications of metallic character. The
boiling water solution, upon evaporation,
exhibits a salt which rapidly deliquesces,
and which attacks metals, notably silver,
almost as freely as nitric acid.
One or two illustrations may be given of
the paradoxical propcities and aotion of this
solvent. Though it freely decomposes gold
and silver, beeswax and the vulcanized
rubber corks used for stopping vials of the
strong acids, it does not irritate the skin,
and insects falling iuto it make their escape
without apparent injury. But lhe most
surprising Faot developed iu experimentation with this chemical fmce is th ,1, il seems
not. to have nor to need anything iu the
nature of a reagent. Indeed iu the treatment of some substances, under certain conditions, the addition of an alkali, in small
proportions, is observed to facilitate solution.
The material from which this singular
chemical is derived is very abundant, and
the proctsses for its production are comparatively rapid and inexpensive. Mr.
Miller is willing, under proper conditions,
to submit thi* substance to investigation by
competent chemist***, who have better facilities for its examination thau are at present
at his command.
Cure Wrought Through a Saint.
Montreal, April 20.���Madame Joseph
Brucheei, a lady well-known in the west
end, Montreal, aud sister-in-law of Rev.
Canon Bruchesi, of the archbishop's palace,
claims to have been quite recently miraculously cured of a terrible illness by the intercession of a favorite saint.
Underground Transit for New York.
New York, April 20.���A syndicate of
rich New Yorkers is reported to have
offered to build and operate an underground
railway wholly with private capital. Mayor
Gilroy opposed both bills now pending in
the Legislature.
Prince Alfred as a Farmer.
London, April 20.���The Duke of Saxe-
CoburgGotha apparently findB that the
duties of his position are not onerous, and
has made extensive purchases of high-class
cattle and sheep with the object of carrying
on farming on a large scale. A valuable
consignment of large white Yorkshire pigs
were sent him, and a number of prize ram
lambs out of a celebrated flock of Shropshire
sheep.
Nanaimo Poultry Sooiety, Limited.
A well-attended meeting of those interested iu the promotion and general objects
of this society was held last evening in the
City Council Chamber. The chair was
taken by Dr. R. E. McKechnie, and among
those present were E. M. Yarwood, W. K.
Leighton, Geo. Williams (Bank B.C.), J. E.
R Tagart, Geo. Norris, J. Scales, Henry
Shepherd, Aid. Cocking, R. Jarvis, J. W.
Graham, Jos. Thompson, T. Craig and F.
VV. Teague (secretary).
The chairman explained tbat the meeting
had been called for the mail purpose of
enabling the trustees to guage the amount
of support an immediate issue of stock
would meet with. Tne capital stock of the
company was $25,000, divided into 2,500 ..
shares of $10 each, and it was proposed to
place on the market ��10,000 of stock.
Mr. Tagart mentioned that he bad
privately ascertained the feelings of many of
the largest capitalists in the city as regards
their intentiou of subscribing for stock, and
that while they were animated with every
desire for the fullest success of the enterprise, they would like to see the support
promised by those more immediately concerned iu the poultry interest, but that beiug satisfactory they would come forward
liberally with applications for stock.
Mr. F. W. Teague the society's secretary
gave a very interesting account of the extraordinary growth of the poultry industry
iu this district and ventured to say that
Nanaimo was already well to the fore, and
had a name over the entire American continent for its energetic pursuit of
this busiuess. He was at the
present time in correspondence with Vancouver, Tacoma and Portland with a view
to arranging a circuit uf shows next winter
and bringing out a couple of the most
notable judges from the east to give the
awards at the^e * xhibitions.
Before the meeting broke up more than a
thousand doiUrs of BtOQK was taken up, and
the secretary was authorized to undertake a
vigorous canvas lo raise the rest of the
capital considered necessary to erect at once
a suitable exhibition hall.

Links in the Lynu Evidence..
Lynn's boat, in which he left Savary
Island after the murder of Green and his
companion Taylor, is being taken down to
Victoria on the Joan to-day. Constable W.
B. Anderson, of Comox, is in charge of the
boat and different articles which il is supposed will lend material aid in the evidence
against Lynn. \\ ith the const able is a witness named Caher, who found the boat in

Women the Same as Men.
Tho London k Lancashire Life Assurance
Co., have decided to insure women at the
same rate as men. Hitherto an extra of five
dollara per thousand was oharged and is
still charged by other companies. No
doubt a large number of our Nanaimo ladies
will take advantage of the reduoed rates
and thus secure a competency in the shape
of an endowment policy. They also insure
miners on endowments and tontine plans. 2a

UN THE STAGE AT LAST.
PALMER    COX'S    FAMED    BROWNIES
MAKE   THEIR   DEBUT.
Th* Wise little EItm aod Valrtes **���
Be Aotuatly Seen la a Three Aet
Musical Spectacle���Something ot the
Manner of Its Presentation.
Real live Brownies behind the footlights;
that is what thousands of ohildren, old
and young, who freight the mails to Palmer C**x, asking nim to send them a "real
live Brownie," will soon have au opportunity to see.
Let me tell you how I found out all
about it. I dropped into Brownie land
last uight. At my approach little brown
elves as usual scampered out of sight and
I was left with the manuscript of a drama,
entitled "Palmer Cox's Brownies." Near
by was a contract which the father of the
Brownies had just signed, and which will
entitle h.ui to tbe highest royalty yet paid
a Canadian playwright.
The first venture of Mr. Cox into dramatic writing is a three act musical spectacle. It will be put upou the boards with
a magnificence seldom, if ever surpassed iu
this country. Malcolm Douglas has written
tbe music, which is described as fresh,
original and catchy.
Fairies, elves and evil spirits are introduced. The evil spirits are bent upou
thwarting the union of the Brownies with
a band of fairies. They meet in a forest,
but the Brownies in the end, despite all
objections, come off victorious. In dissolving views the Brownies will be seen in a
snipwreck, iu a volcanic eruption and in
the dark chasm of a mine. At tbe climax
of Act I. they are clinging to a raft; the/
sing as the storm comes on:
Goddess of myth, we pray
Guard us upon our way. *jjN
?7atch o'er a Brownie crew, ���i
oss'd on the waters blue. **
Speed thou the raft we've made
Unto our sweet queen's aid.
Help us undo the wicked spell
Of terrible DraKonfaL
Neptune, in a gold barge filled with
nymphs, calms the sea and the Brownies
clamber on board. Sad to relate, the
dude, whose popularity with Brownie
lovers is he who is rescued in a remarkable
manner. I would like to say juBt how, but
I promised not to tell. In this act. also,
there is a May-polo dance, iu which the
dude again meets with a mishap, and the
jollity is interrupted by the presence of
strange uuests, who abduct the Queen,
with whom the prince of the Brownies is
iu love. The Brownies, in a tally-ho coaoh,
now make off for the seil-hoie.
In the second net the Brownies reach an
enchanted land���the kingdom of Dragon.
fel. the monster who aoducied the queen.
Here they nieel witn sur]*ri>e�� that baffle
all their cunning, ho wonderfully strange
and beautiful is tbe monster's kingdom.
By a ruse they try to enter Dragout'el's
palace, but are recognized.
One hundred characters are in the cast,
fifty Brownie- aim fifty fairies. It will be
played t*y professionals. Europe and the
United States are now beiug searched in
quest ot actors and actresses of undei'sizc.
To heighten the lilliputian effect, the scenery will be on a gi^a.nic scale and tbe fair
ies oversized men and women. Various
specialties will be introduced, not the least
of which will be n quadrille danced by bears.
The whole presentation will be under the
supervision of Palmer Cox himself. The
costumes will be made from his drawings, and every art will be bent to impart
to these live Brownies the life-like personality of Cox's creations. Iu the finale
there will be it 6erits of Mr. Cox's famous
pictures, in which all the Brownie ventures
will pass before the audience iu dissolving
views to reveal at length the "real live
BrownieB," united with the fairies in their
own happy land.���Lida Rose McCabe, iu
Buffalo Express.
Women on the Prairie.
The winter season is a particularly hard
one for women on the prairie, especially in
the cabin homes of the settlers. The walls
are bo thin and ttie blizzards so sharp that
there is required all tne patience of a s tint
to endure ihe discomforts and sufferings
without complaining. The men can get.
out of the house���indeed, they must to
care for the stock and bring the nee. ssary
supplies from the far away settlement.
But the wife and mother must remain inside the pent-up walls, and long for a ohat
with the neighbor three miles away.
The desolation of the prairie for those
thus situated is something like that of the
ocean for a lighthouse keeper. Shut up in
a tiny space, with miles of untraveraable
acres around, one seems but u prisoner.
Yet women endure it, and smile and wait.
Some day the olaim. they hope, will become an addition to the town, or tine smoke
of locomotives will blow over the low roof.
Then there will be ea-*e and comfort and
happiness. That iB a long time com ng for
most of the watchers, and the eyes grow
dim with looking forwurd. Iu the meantime they are exhibiting the stuff of which
heroes are made, for the women of the
plains have an abiding covenant with faith
in the future and expect to realize their
fullest anticipations.���St. Louis Ulobe-
Democrat.
The Mfwi-of-Wmr.
The modern man of-war is a little world
in itself, or perhaps more properly, a floating city, with itH inhabitants of many
trades and professions. Not only Is there
a doctor to dose you and chaplain to care
for your spiritual welfare, but many cooks,
several carpenters, skilled machinists, electricians, tailors, musicians and barbers.
There is at least one clever Bailorman told
off as ship's writer, which officer corresponds closely to the old-fashioned scrivener. It thus happens that one can have
almost anything made aboard ship, from
an engrossed copv of a complimentary resolution to a complicated piece of machinery or cabinet work.

How to Care Fovorty.
Mr. Burnett thus closes a recent article
in The Fortnightly Bevi*-w on "The Un-
uiiipln* ed:" "If to-nii'iii'W even- oue who
cares tot the pour wonhl become the friend
of one poor person���m.sakiii*,' all <*111.��� i*s
���there would next week by no insoluble
problem of the unemployed, and London

becoming a city of happy homes." Iain
uot so sanguine as Mr. Harnett; I tliinli
that there are other social and industrial
remedies to be applied; but) this personal
friendship of the well-tndo fur the poor is
fundamental. Out of It all other remedies
would grow; without it all other lemedies
would be in vain. A basket of eiml accompanied bjf a grip of the baud will carry
more warmth than two baskets of coal seut

Deu Stanley ou Spiritualism.
Into the question of modern spiritualism
I haro not entered. But it seems to me
that people somewhat complicate the matter by regarding it from a religious side.
It may be that particular persons���perhaps
all people in some degree���nre endowed
with a sort of magnetic power which causes,
or enables them to cause, these impressions, which.is no more preternatural or
religious than the power of musin. on-oent,
or poetry, ami any oilier llitural though
extraordinary gift. Tiie o dy point of view
from which it is theologically interesting
is that it may have been the outward
human or natural instrument through
which in former times revelations from a
higher moral world were made.���Frothero's
Life of Stanley.
A Railroad Incident.
"Wh'M did yon pull the cord forr asked
the indignant conductor of the passenger
who had brought the train to a stand-still
by jerking at tha rope.
"My wife's new hat flew out of the window." replied the excited passenger.
"Do you mean to say you stopped thia
train for such a trifle us that?"
"Trifle!" Innvled the jia-*senuer, "I guess
you never had tt> pa for a fashionable lady's
hat, or you wouldn't talk sncn blank foolishness." replied the indignant passenger.���

WE NEED MONEY.
Up to tbe present we have not pressed

tion in any shape, and that the decision of
the royal commission mnst be adverse to
them. Hence their policy now is to belittle
the commission, to represent that its scope
ia so limited that it can be of uo possible
use, that it is in fact a mere bluff on the
Government's part, aod will only serve to
waste time and public money. This is now
the argument of the Opposition press on the
question, and this the sorry predicament in
which it is placed by its leaders, in being
forced to advance such an argument, as if
the real question at isime was not, whether
the Government has been guilty of corruption as the Opposition had in-inuated. But
this is nevertheless the question which the
royal commission will try, and the decision
rendered, we are confident, will prove the
Opposition and their press to be no better
than slanderers. The enquiry into this
question is surely no empty bluff on the
Government's part, nor will its cost be a
mere waste of time and money, showing as
it will the true character of our public men
on both sides.
The Welland canal was opened for navigation for the season on Thursday. ThiB is
an early opening.
A max and a lion are announced to fight

well as questionable attraction. The managers say that the tight will certainly take
place, and that there will be uo police interference.
Heavy rain on Wednesday and a snowfall
ou Thursday have caused several small
creeks in the western part of Winnipeg to
oveiflow their banks, flooding the lower
stories of many of the houses in that part of
the city. The Red River is rising, but not
much danger of a flood is apprehended.
Several poor people liviug in shanties have
been driven from their homes.
TIIE  NEED OF A  HOi'AL   COMMISSION.
The Opposition ami their organs are in a
sorry predicament. The leading members
of it went about.whispering and insinuating
the charge that the Got ernment had iu
some way been guilty of gross corruption iu
the arrangement made with the Nakusp ami
Slocan Railway Company���that other motives than the public welfare influenced tne
Premier and bis colleagues in advising that
a guarantee he given to the company to aid
them in the construction of the line. Alter
making every demand that they colli*.! think
of for papers, and after a vigorous search for
something on which to base an accusation,,
they could find nothing, and were afraid
openly to advance a chTirge of corruption;
but they weie not altogether silenced.
Thoir political position was such that unless
they could contrive in some way to damage
the Government in public estimation, they
would ha"e absolutely no chance at the
general election. If a charge of corruption
could be successfully fastened on the Government, all would he well with them; they
would surely thou he able to drive the Ministry from power, and would themselves attain to it and its coveted emoluments. Bul
the search through the papers they had
called for regarding the Nakusp and Slocan
railway having failed to develop anything
on which a charge of corruption could be
based, they dare not make any such charge
openly, and were reduced to the necessity of
making it by hint aud inuendo. These, if
they had not been interfered with, would
havo served their purpose almost as well, by
creating a feeling of distrust and suspicion
in the public mind against the Government.
But Hon. Mr. 1 lane's motion for tho appointment of a Koyal Commission toenquiro
into the question of the alleged corruption
grievously disturbed their calculations, j
They wanted no enquiry, would not themselves demand one, and when the Premier
moved tor tlio appointment oi a royal commission, the leader of the Opposition did his
best to side-lrauk the main enquiry and have
it directed, not to the question whether the
Government or any member of it had been I
guilty of corruption in connection with the
arrangement made for building tho Nakusp
and Slocan railway, but whether the Government hud exceeded their authority under
the Railway Act of 1803. This was not the
churge which the Opposition had made; they
had insinuated and suggested over and over
again that the Government had beon guilty
of corruption in some way which they did
not openly specify. Therefore the Premier
I was altogether right in holding them to this,
and in insisting that the question to be enquired into by the royal commission was
whether the Government in advising the
guarantee given to the Nakusp and Slocan
Railway Company had been influenced by
P corrupt motives, not whether they had ex-
* ceeded their authority under the aot of 1893,
'��� or whether anything was wrong about the
Three Forks township site, a charge w hich
had not even been hinted at in the House.
iBut the Opposition is not prepared for
this square issue. They know that they
cannot make   good ttuir   charge of  eon up-
Lokh SALISBURY, in an address delivered
at. a meeting of the Primrose League on
Thursday, said that, personally be was not
opposed to reforming the House of L-irds,
whioh he thought could he done by appointing moro life peers. He said that if the
Government believed that the action of the
Lords in rejecting the Home Rule bill was
against the wishes of the people, they
should at once dissolve and appeal to the
country. He did not wifli to he understood
assaying that t *������ Government ought t<*
dissolve every time a difference betwei-n the
two H"Uses arose, but upon a difference
affecting the lelati'iis between two parts of
the Kingdom, '���* hich had subsisted for seven
centime-*, it was manifestly the duty of the
Governme'ut to appeal to the electors. Referring to the registration bill, Lord Salisbury said it would disfranchise thousands oi
the best people, and give the right to vote
tc many who were practically vagrants.

London's Latest Craze.
A World's London, Eng., correspondent
writeB as followB: "Ta-raraboom-de-ay and
Daisy Boll are out of date in the capital of
the Empire, but that another ditty has taken
its place, which everybody is singing and
which nobody seems to weary of. It ia, he
says, the latest craze in the metropolis, and
tbe expectation is that it will not be long
bef -o it leaches the Pacifio coast. The
now historic expression of 'A Bicycle built
for two' has been abandoned in favor of 'Ye
don't know where ye are,' although the 'ye'
is wrongly used, as the words of the refrain
run:���
'Since old King Cole had a little bit of cash
Fe don't know where he are.
For he don't know where he are
He had the impudence  to call his mother a
W
And he don't know where   eare.'"

"Did you ever hear ol a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
claBs, write to the publisher of The Daily
Telegkam, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
auk for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down and talk with the
publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
why it is that he can't print as good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronage, or have
his paper as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements! A useful lesson
mav be learned from Nanaimo."

(Extract from "Colonist," April 13.)
The deputation of Kaslo oitizens and civio
officials who arrived in the city several days
ago with the objeot ol interviewing the
Government in respect to the Kaslo and
Slocan railway���asking that it be put on
as favorable footing as the Nakusp and
Slocan���returned home this morning, evidently satisfied with the outcome of their
interviews with Premier Davis and his
colleagues. The members of the deputation
were muoh pleased with their courteous
reception aud the distinct disposition shown
by the Government to deal fairly and
squarely with them. The amendment to
the Railway Companies' Aot, introduced by
the Government and whioh has just become
law, iB pronounced entirely satisfactory,
and construction will now proceed at once.
When the delegates left Kaslo the people
there were waiting for the assurance that
the railway was a "sure go" ; now that
they have reoeived the welcome news, the
burnt distriot will be immediately rebuilt,
much finer struotures in every way replacing thoBe destroyed by the fire of a few

All men look upon housecleaning as an evil derived for their special discomfort by the other sex. All women look
upon housecleaning a3 an evil likewise, but they know it to be a necessary one.
Housecleaning is unes apable. It must come to all���rich and poor, high and low. Twice a year does every grade
of womanhood meet upon common ground.
Festivals and vacations and journeys and other human happenings may be postponed - even done away with altogether. But housecleaning! Fate itself is not lesa unavoidable, and with the budding and falling of each year's leaves
does it as certainly locm before us, the great twin horror of the year.
Draperies require renewing, lounges and chairs recovered, etc., etc. Now we carry an immense line of House Furnishing Goods, and only yesterday opened up another shipment of Lace Curtains, which we have only added charges to���
when marking���so they are therefore very cheap Then we have Art Muslins, Cretonnes and Fringes, Table Linnens and
Napkins, and a big stock of Sheeting and Pillow Cotton.
