Biudokville, Pa., Jan. 27.���Tne rioterta,
Hungarians, Slavs, Poles and  other foreign
[era who thronged this town today, spreading ruin and destruction in their path, have
all disappeared, but there is no tefling when
they will return.     The citizens are still in
state of terror; and armed men stand guard
on street corners and  challenge all  comers
The ruins of lhe Schulte Coal Typple. which
was fired, is still smoking,  and crowds of
indignant, spectators  stand  around discussing what is to be done.    The rioters seemed
to have had a
Systematic Plan of Operation.
They started in about noon, in the Toms
Run tiisrriul, where ate lucaed rile Pitis-
burg Fuel company's mints, the W. J.
Steen mines; lhe Ghartier Block Coal Company's mines numbers 1, 2 and 3; the H. K.
Wick and the Heechmont mines. At most
of these places the tracks were torn up, the
mules were turned loose, hundreds of loaded
coal cars were dumped and the wheels
broken off so as to make the job complete.
Sections of the Typple's were also torn
down. The band then proceeded down
Tom's Run, and across the hills to Bridge-
ville. They passed through the main streets
towards the A. J. Schulte Coal mines. Aa
they passed C. P. Mayer's general store
here, they made an onslaught on his place,
sinarshing the front windows. The occupants all
Fled From tbe House in Terror,
thinking the purpose of the mob was t*
burn l hem up. But all they wanled was
several cases of pick hondles that stood
within. The boisterous clamor announced
the satisfaction of the rioters as they distributed the spoils. They went straight to the
Sehulte Typple, which extended from the
hillside out over lhe Panhandle railroad
tracks. There were several Typple men
preseut at the time, but they find, except

as the horde of foreigners approached. Au
attempt to address litem ouly called forth
terrible threats. Pick handles were wildly
brandished aud several weapons were
levelled at Layton. At the demonstration,
he, too, tied up the lull, while the rioters
scrambled to the typple. A dozen matches
were applied to the typple structure and it
was soon a mass of Haines. In a moment
the
Entire Community Was Abroad,
and at the scene of the tire. The rioters fied
over the hills. Brave hands set to work to
save the works, but nothing oould be done.
The big Typple, valued at ��3,000, was
-doomed. A railroad train, which was
blocked by the flames, was hitched to the
s uremic, aud it waB hauled to the ground.
Twelve telegraph wires were broken, and
the railroad was so covered with debris that
all trains wr-re delayed. Tlio wreck crew
was summoned from Mansfield, and the
gnat in is* of burning timber, twisted rails
and irons were re noved from the tracks.
Fifteen Hundred People
surrounded the place, and amid the most
exciting scene there occurred an incident
that eclipsed even the disaster. A man's
voice rang out through the silent air. All
faces were turned to see who it was. On a
freight car, a few paces from the burning
Typple, stood C. P. Mayer, one of the leading business men of Bridgeville. It was his
store which had been invaded by the robbers. In words trembling with fervor, he
pleaded with his fellow-citizens to avenge
the wrong just committed in their midst.
The sentiment was greeted with cheers, and
within ten minutes a

which was on [la way towards the Painter's

DEADWOOD, S.D., Jan. 27.���A train robber natinod John Dal ton was captured by
oue of the Northwestern Express messengers to-day. Dalton had himself expressed
on the inside of a stuffed buffalo, but his
game was spoiled by his removing one of

The track caved in and he nr* pp- rl oo he
robber inside and sat ou him until he next
station was reached, when he was turned
over to the authorities. The safe contained
��50,000. Evidently Dalton had confederates, who were to aot at his signal. They
have not yet been apprehended.
they were sought by
many who simply desired a safe, easy and
tranquil life, rather thvn for a life nf penitence, self discipline and devotion. In thia
way there very soon arose the need of reformation, and with the necessity arose the
man S. Benedict, well called the patriarch
of the Western Church, and specially honored by the Church of Iv.gland ou March
21s'. Then followed a very interesting
life of this Saint
and of his famous
rule which the lecturer produced and gave
ilhrstrai.il extracts from.
A large portion of the lecture was taken
up with the variations of the general principles, that prevailed through lhe middle
ages down to its genera' overthrow in England by Henry VIII. Tne speak-r seemed
to attach great value to the work of the
mendicant orders of the Dominicans and
Franciscans in grappling with the problems
of that age. Of the latter order tho lecturer
said they soon became popular, their disinterested devotion to the needs of the people commended them every where. But
this very popularity was their ruin, as it is
of so many modern religious movements.
At first they were tempted to court popularity and to cultivate little money getting
tricks, as popularity increased so did riches
until the mendicant orders became really
very wealthy.
A most interesting account was given of a
visit to a modern Trappist monastery near
Louisville, Kentucky. Some excellent
photographs of Fountains Abbey, Yorkshire, were inspected, while an account was
given of that Cistercian community. The
lecturer concluded by saying: My own
opinion is, that we shall not live to see die-
endowment accomplished, but if I am mistaken, and if the Church of England be
disendowed, it will be impossible for the
Church lo carry  on her  Divine mission ex-

Men who will for the love of Cud and the
souls of men, vow themselves to obedience,
poverty and celibacy; meu who will be
content to live in couveutual brotherhood
and go out into the highways and byways of
our towns aud valleys to preach the Gospel
and administer the sacraments of  life.
1 am quite aware that those v. ho are la-
boricg to bring about the disendowment of
the church would find iu this result the last
thing they desire, but it will be the results
of their rrwr work. Tbe chtH'.'h oan never
si and by aud allow that country to lapse
into heathenism; and if she is robbed of her
rr.eaus lo rlo the work, or if she finds insufficient means to do it in other ways, she
must Uo il without means; and the Franciscan and Dominican machinery stands ready
to her hands showing how it might be done.
I firmly believe that those who live to see
the disendowment of the church in England
may live to see monks and friars as plentiful
in English citiea as they were in the thirteenth century. But 1 think we may trust
both the spirit of the nineteenth century
and the wisdom of the church to provide
trgatust the perils which 1 have hinted at
and which brought about the downfall of
the monastic system.

ecclesiastical authorities; e, g, Leo the

preach or intrude themselves intoother cler-

monasticism had begun to decline from its
original simplicity and purity just, in ratio
to ilB bold upon popular favor. Aud at this
time monasticism dividos itself into two

Texada Island.
Texada Island's resources in mineral
wealth are considerably greater than are
generally imagined, the island itself has an
area of al) *ut. 150 square miles, of which uot
much more than Hires square miles have
been prospect"!. A few details of the
ir.i.nr.g operaliona that have been carried on
iu the islaud will probably surprise many by
their magnitude. There have been eight
tunnels driven from 40 to 70 feet long in
copper, gold and silver lodes; also seven
shall * sunk on the same from *J."�� lo 45 feet,
all of them having been iu solid rock or
quartz.
The No. 1 lode has been proved for 15,000
feet in length by no less than 2(1 opeu cuts,
linnets and shafts, aud free gold can be obtained from neatly every prospect,. The
width of thia lode varies from two to SO feet.
No. 2 lode has been proved by twelve
open cuts, luunels and shafls for a length of
1(1,011(1 feet and free gold'has been got at
every prospective examination of it, as
much as half an ounce of the precious
metal having been found in one Iu up of the
rock. Assays of the above have I* r n taken
and aro kepi ou file by the ownera who will
uot, make the results public.
Tire copper veins known to exist are six
or seven and a grial deal of work and
money has beeu expendeil on them. The
assay- of lhe copper veins show 15, 22 aud
37 : " "i"rt. copper and from 4 lo Iti ounces
ofsil'cr per tun, which results are con-
sideied remarkably good, considering the
work done.
The returns for the next few months will
be anxiously looked for, as they will prove
the permanency of the lodes more definitely.
During ihe winter months from six to ten
men have beeu employed working on the
claims at Texada and ou the re-opening of
the spring season a much larger number it
expected will be engaged irr mining operations ou tim different ledgvs.
Ti xada, besides its mineral wealth, has
fiue f,fining lauds also, which have been
passed by up till now, there being a number
of large swamps iu different porr.iorrs of the
island, many of which would make good

the island, where lire limber is not, very
heavy, have been found to posse is a soil
���plendidly adapted to fruit growing.
Texada has about 20 permanent settlers
all of whose occupations arc mining or connected wiih it.
There is a wharf on the north end of the
island, and thu portion of another by the

pat lially destroyed by the recent heavy

A VICTIM TO SOAP AND WATER.
The Digger Indian Performed an Unusual
Act nnd Died from Its Effects.
Chatting' with a reporter [or the Chicago Tribune a few days ag*o an old
array officer who has served all over the
country gave his opinion of-the Digger
Indian as follows:
"This Indian, a native of northern
California, is the most degraded, no-account creature in the United States. He
is swinish, dirty, indolent and sometimes ugly! He does not possess a single good characteristic. Occasionally
he kills a comrade, but American law
never descends to his sphere, as it merely views such matters in the same light
as when one mule kicks another, lie
lives on horse meat, abandoned shin-
bones, grasshoppers, pine nuts and
acorns. He will go further to see a circus or to steal a watermelon than any
other human being. He will sit for
hours in tho sun with the mercury tit a
hundred, the laziest, freest, happiest
and most independent thing* in existence. He luxuriates in frrurth nf July
processions and other spectacular demonstrations without obtaining any idea
of their meaning. His head, always uncovered to the sun, bears a black mane
thicker than that of a horse. He
lives and lives and becomes more
shriveled and drier and drier, but still
he lives until he is a hundred and over
���no one knows how long, for his un-
doetored vitals are so tough and so
strong that they keep to their work
until the last drop of blood in his veins
is fairly dried up.
"And this reminds me," eontiuued the
army officer, "of a story that Gen. Sheridan delighted to tell. A Digger, while
out near the upper Klamath prospecting, came across one of those saponaceous deposits which abound in northern California and Nevada, aud which
he mistook for something more argentiferous. He obtained a chunk of it and
waded into a neighboring creek for tlte
purpose of washing it. He was surprised to find that it changed the color
of his hands, and it felt so good that he
rubbed himself from head to foot with
it, dived three or four times into the
water, and then made for home. As he
approached his camp a score of his
friends dashed at him with clubs and
knives, and, although he screamed in
their tongue and declared himself one
of their tribe, his exclamations of identity and cries of pain were received
with anger and derision, and he was
literally hacked and stoned anil clubbed
to death. Even the squaw of his bosom
and his children failed to recognize him.
and his own dog barked at him. Vou
see he was the only Digger Indian that
ever washed with soap and water, and
he fell a victim to the unfortunate application."
K. C. McDONALD
AN   ECCENTRIC   AUTHOR.
One of His Visitors  Spent  the  Night In
the Ill-ranches of a Tree.
Dr. Frith, in his "Reminiscences," relates a story of the late Mr. lieckford,
the autor of "Vathek." This eccentric
gentleman lived at Fonthill abbey, a
few miles from Bath. Every picture in
the abbey was a gem and the gardens
were unrivaled by any in England, but
the owner was a recluse antl this palace of art was surrounded by a formidable wall seven miles in circuit, twelve
feet high and crowned by a chevaux-de-
frise, and the gates were kept carefully
closed. At last Mr. Friths cousin, an
ardent connoisseur in art, foun,d them
unguarded, lie slipped in and wandered about the enchanted domain till
he met a man with a spade in his hand,
presumably the gardener, This personage politely showed him over fruit
gardens, hothouses, etc.,then the house,
with its pictures, bric-a-brac, suits rrf
armor and other glories ami
ended by asking him to dinner. "No, really, I couldn't think
of taking such a liberty. I am sure
Mr. lieckford would be offended."
"No he wouldn't. You must stop and
dine with me. I am Mr. Beckford.*"
The dinner was magnificent, served on
massive plate, the wines of the choicest
vintage, rarer still Mr. Beekford's conversation. They talked till a tine Louis
Quatorze struck eleven. Then Mr.
lieckford rose and left the room. The
guest waited for his return till he
Started to find the room in semi-darkness and one of the solemn, powdered
footmen putting out the light. "Mr.
lieckford has gone to bed," sairl the
man. Tin* guoist rose and followed tlie
footman to the front door. That functionary openerl it with* and sairl: "Mr.
Beckford ordered me to present his compliments to you, sir; and I am to say
that, as yon found your way into Font-
hill abbey without assistance, you may
find your way out again as best you
can; anil he hopes you will take eare to
avoirl the bloodhounds that are let loose
in the gardrins every night. I wish you
good-evening." The guest spent the
night in the branches of the first tree,
that promised a safe shelter and it was
not till the sun showed itself that he
made his way, terror attending each
step, through the gardens into the park
and so to Bath.
Explosive Celluloid,
As the mail train was running between Pierrelitte and Villiers recently,
says a Paris letter, the clerks in tbe
postal van for Cologne were startled by
the noise of an explosion, and discovered
that a parcel addressed to Berlin was
in flames and threatening to set fire to
the other contents of the sorting
tender. The box was therefore thrown
out of the window on to the line and a
telegram sent to the nearest station-
master to look out for it. On being recovered it was found to consist of a
cardboard box, which was completely
carbonized and the contents of which
had entirely disappeared. It was dispatched to ISerlin by a manufacturer of
combs, and is supposed to have contained articles made of celluloid, which,
being placed at the top of the van near
the. lamp, became heated and caused
the explosion.

Only Upon Advice Can She Withhold Her
Aesent to Legislation.
The queen of England has no veto
power, but her assent is necessary before a bill becomes law. Unde�� the
British constitution there are what are
known as the three estates of the
realm, "the commons, the lords and
the king." It requires the cooperation
of all these to make a statute, according to the Seattle Telegraph. A bill
must pass both houses of parliament
and be assented to by the sovereign lie-
fore it becomes an act of parliament.
The sovereign, lords and the commons
together constitute "parliament." In
practice the house of commons is spoken of as the parliament, and the expression "dissolution of parliament" is
used when the dissolution of the house
of commons only is meant. Parliament never is dissolved. Bills which
have passed the commons and the lords
are in due course submitted to the sovereign for her assent. If she withholds her assent the bill becomes inoperative. It is to be understood that
this assent is given or withheld by the
queen, not of her mere motion, but as
she may be advised by her ministry.
She could refuse to act upon the advice of the ministry and thereby compel
their resignation, but she would be
powerless to act until a new ministry
would be formed, and everything would
remain in abeyance until one was
formed, and the new ministers would
have to take the whole responsibility of
her assent or refusal. She cannot act
without this advice. Therefore, the
the queen can only refuse her assent to
legislation when advised by her ministers, and her ministers would not so advise unless they were sure of beiug sustained by a majority vote of the house
of commons or by the people on an appeal being made to them at a general
election. On the rare occasions when
the queen's assent has been withheld
to measures she has acted with the full
concurrence and advice of her ministers
for the time being and has never refused
to act on their advice. The difference
between this and a veto power is that
under the latter the bill comes law if
not vetoed within a specified time. An
act of parliament requires the queen's
assent to become a law.
THE   CHINESE   OATH.
An Extroortlluu*$ Ceremonial Among; tho
Celestials.
One of the strangest judicial proceedings, perhaps, ever witnessed is that of
the Chinaman taking what he is pleased
to call the "yellow oath." The "oath"
or declaration is always written on a
piece of "sacred" paper, and is as follows:
"This is to call the spirits, both good
and evil, to descend and watch over the
trial of ������, who is charged with murdering  .    If I swear falsely and tell
one untruth, or do not make statements
according to the facts in the case, I
humbly   beg   the  celestial   terrestrial
spirits to redress the wrong done to	
and to punish me immediately for having been a false witness; to arrest my
soul in its flight; to make me perish
by the sword, or to cause me to die
while on the sea far from home. This
is my true and solemn oath, uttered by
my own lips, and signed by me this, the
 day of tho month in the	
year of the reign of the Emperor ;
and in proof of the earnestness of my
declarations, may my soul be destroyed
as I now destroy this paper, by fire."
Immediately after the witness finishes
reading his "yellow oath" a lighted
candle is handed to him and the paper
is given as food for the flames. To the
writer's certaia knowledge this form of
oath has been administered but oner* in
an American court of justice���during
the trial of Wong Ah Foo, who was accused of murdering Loi Ah tlou at San
Francisco in 1S85. In China the candle
used in this extraordinary ceremonial
is made from the fat of criminals who
have undergone the death penalty 1

THE IMPEIIIA L DEFENCES.
The r*!jestion of enlarging and strengthen
ing the British navy continues to occupy
attention in England. The Right Hon. A
J. Balfour, leader of the Opposition, referred
to the sulijecl on Monday last in a meeting
at Manchester. "Any nation or combina
tion of nations," said Mr. Balfour, "that
could wrest from Great Britain her suprem
acy of the seas, could bring her to her knees
without, landing a single soldier on Krrglish
soil." What Mr. Balfour meant waa that
the nation or nai ions which had obtained
the maalery of the seas could cut off Great
Britain's food supplies by sea, and in a little
time Btarve her out without the expense of
placing an invading army on British soil.
Great Britain would be forced to make
peace on any terms she could get if lier supremacy by sea was lost.. Hence lhe great
importance of maintaining tbe strength of
the navy at such a point, that no European
combination, likely to be formed ugninst
.Great Britain, would he able to overcome it.
The chief danger that Great Britain has
to apprehend just now ia an alliance against
her of France and Russia. The latter is
England's rival in Asia, and ever since the
Crimean war, which waa wugerl without
necessity by a Liberal Government, nf which
Mr. Gladstone himself Wao a member, haa
lost no bppnrtuni'y to thwart British policy
as much as poafible'n that quarter of the
globe, and, indeed, everywhere els*i. Russia's desire for revenge for the check she
suffered iu the Crimean war sterna to be as
great to day as it was when Sebaalrrpol fell.
She ia bound sooner ��� or later to try and
gratify her revenge by waging another war
with England, either in Europe or Aaia, it
matters not which. Hence Great Britain
must keep herself prepared for the contingency of another Russian war, no matter
what lhe cost. Hence, too, the danger of a
Franco Russian alliance, which would be
quite as much aimed at Great Britain as at
Germany.
Mr. Balfour, who is admittedly th" ablest
of the younger '"err amn* g t* *��� stt.t* sim-i of
England, docs not believe thai any Government would be just ill* *l i** expecting a long
era of perce. In support of 'his opinion 'he
pointed in his speech at, Manchester to
France and Russia, England's most dangerous enemies and rivals. Even when there
Were indications, be said, that France and
Russia were earnestly bent on peace, their
main arrangements were prompted bj the
assumption of a conflict with England,
sooner or later, singly or combined. We
have pointed out above what bus been
Russia's feeling towards Great Britain ever
since the Crimean war. Mr. Balfour, with
great regret, recorded hia conviction at
Manchester that the French were hostile to
England, despite the fact, which does not
admit of question, that the English penple
are and have for a long time been amicably
disposed towards France. But it muat be
admitted even by their greatest admirers
thai the French aie revengeful. 'I hey have
not yet forgiven the British for Waterloo,
any more than they have forgiven the Germans for Kediii.
Therefnre ���r. Balfour argued in hia
speech at Manchester for the neccasily of
keeping the British navy strong enough to
cope with the combined navies of France
and Russia, if need be; and pledged lhe
support of the Opposition in every effort
made by the Government to strengthen
England's naval and military power. This
is as it should be. In such a matter aa the
maintenance of the national defences aguinst
the attempts of possible foes, both the Government and the Opposition ought to be of
one mind. But, unfortunately, it is not so ;
at least, as far as Mr. Gladstone is concerned. He treated Lord George Hamilton's motion, that it wae advisable to
strengthen the navy, as a strictly party
question; and made a deceptive speech in
reply which it is becoming more evident
every day waB believed by nobody, notwithstanding the fact that Mr. Gladstone's followers voted on Lord George's motion aB if
they believed in the Premier's sincerity.
But, although Gladstone's followers in the
House of Commons would, we believe, vote
that black was while at his bidding, all his
colleagues in the cabinet are not equally
submissive. The lords of the Admiralty,
with Earl Spencer at their head, a few days
after the debate on Lord George Hamilton's motion was  defeated,  tendered their
resignation in a body. They would not continue to hold office and be responsible for
the results if the navy were Dot strengthened. Mr. Gladstone and Sir William Vernon Harcourt, his Chancellor of the Exchequer, had to yield. Sir William Vernon
Harcourt had asserted in the House on December 19th that Great Britain's naval supremacy was assured, thus echoing Mr.
Gladstone's argument. Two days later,
after the Lords of the Admiralty had tendered their resignation, he retracted the
statement and explained in a bungling way
that the estimate of the naval experts, on
which he and of course Mr. Gladstone had
relied, related ouly to the present moment,
and not to the prospective increase of the
French and Russian navies at an early date.
This is how the Admiralty haa beerr permitted to proceed with the construction of
certain line-of battle ahips, cruisers, torpedo
bruits and gun boats, as stated in recent
news from England. Ir, is to be hoped,
however, thai England will not bo involved
iu a serious war during Gladstone's time.
He was ill fitted at his beBt to direct the
councils of the nation during the crisis of a
great war, and is now far too old to do so
with success.
A DISEASE, resembling typhus fever aud
very fatal, is raging at Grand Forks, Dakota,
nnd elsewhere in that neighborhood. There
have been '2,400 cases of the diaease in
Grand Forks alone.
An APPLICATION is to be made to the
Dominion Parliament next session to incorporate the Boynton Bicycle Electric Railway from Winnipeg to Louisburg, Cape
Breton. So, at least, it ia reported from
Ottawa. But what is a bicycle electric railway, and what purpose will it servo?
A TEERIBLB blizzard took place laat week
in Oklahoma Territory. Several persona
were frozen to death, aud the aickness and
Buffering among the new settlers was very
great. We may congratulate ourselves that
although there arc plenty of poor people in
Canada, and although the climate in winter
ia cold enough, such a thing as a person
freezing to death, unless in the case of a
drunken man wbo pei haps went to sleep in
a snow-drift, is never heard of. The Canadian climate, except in part of Manitoba
aud the Northwest Territories, is at all
events free from blizzards in winter and
cyclones at all times.
Mil, Loiii.N A. THURSTON, the Hawaiian
miniater at Washington, and his secretary
of legation, Mr. Frank P. Hastings, were
present ut Mis. Cleveland's reception on
Friday evening. This is looked upou as a
si'^u thai President Cleveland means to
recognize the Provisional Government.
1'erhaps Mr. Cleveland Is tired of acting the
part of a virtuous ruler iu his dealings with
Hawaii, ami that he is going now to let the
Provisional Governmeut and the natives
settle matters to their mutual satisfaction,
as best they can. Certainly he Beems to
have got but little thanlra from the majority
of Americana for Ins efforts to do right in
the Hawaiian affair.
The National Board of Trade at Washington, D. C., has passed a resolution in
favor of the Nicaragua canal. It would be
more to the purpose if the members of the
board subscribed for the company's stock.
But it costs nothing io pass resolutions ; it
might coat something to subscribe for stock.
If tall talk would make tho canal, it would
have been made long ago. The Americans
would *lo nell to stu,r talking and passing
resolution, atmut the Noaragu i canal, aud
to put their bauds d wu into their pockets
anu bring up money enough to p.y for tire
making rrf it. Then, after 11 was made, tlruy
could do the bragging about it at their
leisure.
The Minister of Aurioultiire has issued a report in which he strongly recommends the farmers rrf Manitoba and the
Northwest Territories lo go in for mixed
farming, The Minister of Agriculture, we
think, ia right, for if prairie farmers once
thoroughly exhaust the soil by growing
wheat on it year after year,without manure,
or auy system of scientific rotation of crops,
lliey will in a few yeara turn the prairies
into a barren wilderness, capable of growing
nothing but a scanty ciop of weeds. But if
mixed farming is in* reduced in time, and a
proper system of agriculture adopted which
conserves anil restores lhe fertility of the
toil, part beiug kept in pasture and part
cropped and manured, the fertility of the
land may Ire preserved, juat as in England
and Sootland the fertility of farm land has
been presorvud for humlredB of yeais, and
even increased, by a proper system of cultivation, manuring tho laud ut frequent in[
tervals, und rotation of cropB. It will
require centuries to restore the fertility of
soil that has beeu exhausted by growing
wheat upou it year after year, without
manure, till it will produce no more, and
then throwing out of cultivation to grow
weeds or what it will. The Americans
have exhausted millions of acres of their
beBt lands by this process, till they are good
for nothing.and will be good for nothing for
centuries to come. The example ought to
be a warning to the farmers of Canada to
pursue a wiser system of cultivation, that
will couserve for all time the fertility of tho
soil. Mixed farming, manuring, and proper
rotation of crops will do this, and nothing
else will.

The Caledonian ball on Thursday last is
pronounced ou all sides to have been a grand
success. Great praise is due to the different
committees who worked hard in securing
the comfort of their guests. The music was
very good and the supper most excellent.
In securing the services of such a good
caterer as Mrs. Blakely, the management
should be congratulated.
Once again Englishmen were put to the

Spencer or a Shakespeare unnivei>arj?
Where iij Wellington is there a St. George's
society or a Irnlye nf the Sims of Eogland to

Buried for ever are the old feuds and

Saxon, as well as the Gael, making the
world aware that, he is nol unmindful of the
mighty deed of his nation.

Uncle Tom's Cabin.
The Oregonian of January 4, 1894, Bayr* :
Despite lhe imrlenreul weather, a crowded
house greeted Sutton's "Uucle Turn's
Calrirr'' eoni[riny at Cor dray's last night. An
excellent performance of tbe old favorite
was given. From the first ri*se till the final
descent of the curtain there was not a
moment's waiting, catchy specialties tilling
the intervals between acts. The drama
itself was rendered interesting by Lhe
Btudied aet ng of Harry Singleton, who appeared in the title role. Misses Maud
Suiton and Edna Graham, as the mischievous Tupsies, appeared to excellent advantage. Sympathetic tears followed little
Lillian as Eva and Miss Large us
Eliza, while great applause was the
response to the speeches of \V. H. Davidson
as .Marks. Mrs. Davidson, as Aunt Ophelia,
made a deoided hit, aud she is certainly the
best in that part who has yet appeared at
Ci'irlray's. Tire other characters acquitted
themselves very creditably, aud, taken altogether, it was au excellent presentali*.u
of the play that never ages.
Between acts the Sutton sisters sang and
danced iu a taking way, and tbe Silurian
quartet, one of the best ever heard in this
city, rendered Southern melodies, and received repeated encores. The play concluded with a grand transformation scene,
"Beautiful Uates Ajar."
"Uncle Tom's Cabin" is on for a week's
run, with the usual Saturday matinee.
Tne above company will appear at
Mahrer'a Opera House on Wednesday and
Thursday evenings of next week. Reserved
seats ou sale at Pimbury k Co's.

A Simple Preventative of La Grippe.
Mr. Angel!, of Boston, referring to the
epidemic of (Jrippe, stated that he had
caused Inquiry to be made a few days since
at Byam'a Matoh Factory, and tound that
none uf the fifty girls and ten men employed there had ever had the Grippe, and
that the bonk -keeper there was the only
person out of his family of eleven who escaped ir. Mr. Angell suggested that wearing a little powdered sulphur in the stockings oould nut do much harm and might
prove as effective aB it is aaid to have proved
in yellow fever aud cholera, and that an oc
caBional tcaepoonfu) of the old remedy,���
sulphur. cream of tartar and molasses,���
might give an equally good or even better
protection.

Printers Ink, the highest newspaper au

Daily Telegram:
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 mileB from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of Thi Daily
Teleokam, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, and when
you obtain it c ompare 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 Iree from dead-head or objec
tionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo."
The Teleoram job plant is now in position 10 do all kinds of job printing on the
shortest notice. We have a large stock oi
all kinds of papers on hand and will guarantee to suit our customers in stock and work.
The  Daily  Tilboram   is  prepared  to

THE LOVERS' STRATAGEM
(By Erie St C. K. Koss.)
CHAPTER XI.
(continted)
'���Not wuined';" exclaimed Blount. "Aha,
now I understand! ��10,000! Gad! my
blood is up, and I won't be treated in this
way wer.r he fifty times S'ingy Jack! So!
bo! Stay, let me see she's to meet me in
the square," aud he pulled out one of the
smalles'. watches ever teen. "Ah\" he said,
after consulting the tiny timekeeper, "jubi
in time."
"I must be off to the vestry," exclaimed
Mr. Stout, p riling out a watch which was a
complete contrast to that, of the young
baronet, and as he spoke he also made u
dash for the door,and came in collision with
Sir Frederick, who was not at all pleased at
the "disarrangement' consequeut upon the
shock. In fact, they left the club quarrell
ing as politely as it was possible under the
circumstances.
CHAPTER XII.
"doubts and fears."
We must now return to a comfortable
sitting-room in Sir John Vesey's house. Il
was the first of the suite occupied by Lady
Franklin, and waB elegantly and tastefully
furnished. No oue appreciated this fact
more than Mr. Graves, who was saying on
this occasion���
"Well, well," cried Graves, "I am certain that per Evelyn loves Clara still; but
you can't persuade me that she cares for
him."
"She has been breaking her heart ever
since she heard of his distress," Baid Lady
Franklin. "Nay. I am sure Bhe would give
all she has, could it save him from the consequences of his owu folly."
"She would only g ve him his own money,
if she did," cried Graves. "I should like
just to sound her."
"And you shall," cried Lidy Franklin.
"I take so much interest in her, that I forgive your friend everything but his offer to
Georgina."
A servant entered.
"Where are the young ladies?" enquired
Lady Franklin.
"Miss Vesey is, I believe, still in the
square," returned the man, "I attended her
to Drummond's the banker." And at a
sign from her ladyship the attendant retired.
"Drummouds!" echoed Lidy Franklin, as
Clara Douglas entered the room.
"Why, ohild," cried Lady Franklin,
what on earth could take you to Drummond's at this hour of the day?"
"Oh, I���that is���I���Ah, Mr, Graves,"
stammered Clara, and added. "How iB Mr.
Evelyn? How does he bear up against, so
sudden a reverse?"
"With an awful calm," cried Graves. "I
fear all is not right, here!" and he touched
his head. "The report in the town is, tint
he must go abroad instantly���perhaps today!"
"Abroad!���to-day!" murmured Clara.
"But all his creditors will be paid;" Baid
Graves, and he only seems anxious to know
if Miss Vesey remains true in his misfortunes."
"Ah, he loves her ao much, then!" cried
Clara.
"Um!���That's more than I can say."
"She told me last night, that, he said
��10,000 woulrl free him from nil his liabilities���that was ilia suin, was it nol?" asked
Clara.
"Yes, he persists in the same assertion.
Will Miss Vesey lend it?" asked Graves, in
his turn.
"If she does I shall not think bo well of
her poor dear mother," said Lady Franklin,
"for I'm sure she'd be no child of Sir
John's!"
"I should like to convince myself that my
poor friend has nothing to hope from a woman's generosity," exclaimed Graves.
"Ci*il!" cried her ladyship. "And are
men, then, less covetous?"
"I know one man, at least, who, rejected
in his poverty by one as poor as himself, no
sooner came into a sudden fortune than he
made his lawyer invent a codicil whioh the
testator never dreamt of, bequeathing inde-
Eendence to the woman   who   had   scorned
im," said Graves.
^'And never told her?" cried Lady Franklin.
"Never!" cried Graves. "There is no
euch document, at Doctors' Commons, depend on it! You teem incredulous, Miss
Clara!    Good-day."
"One word," cried Clara, following him,
"for mercy's sake! Do I understand you
right? Ah, how oould I be bo blind? Generous Evelyn!"
"You appreciate, and Georrjina will desert
him,'' Graves went on. "MUs Douglas, he
loves you still���If that's not just like ine!
Meddling with other people's uffairs, as if
they were worth it���hang them!" and he
left the room indignantly.
"Georgina will desert him," moaned
Clara.    "Do you think so?"
"She told me, last night, that she would
never see him again," said Lady Franklin.
"To do her justice, she's less interested than
her father, and as much att ached as Bhe can
be to another. Even while engaged to Evelyn she has met Sir Frederick every day in
theBquare."
"And he is alone���sad���forsaken���
ruined," murmured Clara. "And I, whom
he enriched���I, the creature of his bounty���
I, once the woman of his love���I stand idly
here to content myself with tears and prayers! Oh, Lady Franklin, have pity on me
���on him! We are both of kin to him���as
relations we have both a right to comfort!
Let us go to him���come!"
"No! it would Boarcely be right���remember the world���I cannot."
"All abandon him���then 1 will go alone!"
"Alone," oried  Lady Franklin.    "What
will he think?    What but "
'. "What but���that, if he love me still, I
may have enough for both, and I am by his
side!" Clara went on. "But that is too
bright a dream. He told me I might call
him brother! Where, now, should a sister
be? But���but���I���I���I tremble! If after
all���if���if���in   one   word���am I too   bold
The world���my conscience can answer that
���but do you think that he could despise
me?"
No, Clara, no!" said her ladyship. J: our
fair soul is too transparent for even libertines to mi-construe. S nr.eihing tells me
that thit meeting may in ke the happiness
aflyoth! You ciurioi fi alone. My presence
justifies all. Give rr e y*ur hand ���we will
go together!" and the good lady conducted
Cara from the room.
CHAPjER XIII.
"TOO LATE,    too late."
Evelyn was lounging in that elegant
saloon briefly described in the tenth chapter
of this veracious history. Ho was murmuring to himself���
"Yes; as yet, all surpasses my expectations. I am sure of Smooth���I have managed even Sharp: my election will seem but,
uu escape from a prison. Ha! ha! True, ir
cannot last long; but a few hours more are
all I require, and for that time at least I
shall hope to be thoroughly ruined."
He rose promptly aft, Mr. Graves entered
the room.
"Well! Graves," he continued, "and what
do people say of me?"
"Everything that's had?" was the reply.
"Three days ago I was universally re
spected," proceeded Evelyn. "I awake
tins morning to find myself singularly infamous.    Yet I'm the same man."
"Humph! why, gambling���"
"Can't; it was not criminal to gamble���it
was criminal to lose;" said Evelyn. " Tut !
Will you deny that, if I had ruined Smooth
instead of myself, every hand wouM have
grasped mine yet more cordially, and every
lip would have smiled congratulation on my
success ? Man���man ? I ve not been rich
and poor for nothing. The vices and the
virtues are written iu a langu *ge the world
cannot construe ; it reads them in a vile
translation, aud the translators are���Failure
and Success.    You alone are unchanged."
"Them's no merit in that," cried Graves,
"I am always ready to mingle my tears with
any man. I know I'm a fool, but I can't
help it. Hark ye, Evelyn? I like you ; I'm
rich; and anything I can do to get you on1
of your hobble will give me an excuse to
grumble for the rest of my life. There, now;
it's out."
" There's something good in human
nature, after all," said Evelyn, touched,
"My dear friend, I will now confide in you.
I am not the spendthrift you think me. My
losses have been trifling���not a month's income of my fortune," he proceeded, and
Graves shook him heartily by the hand
"No; it has been but a stratagem to prove
if the love on which was 11 rent the happiness of a whole life were given to the monoy
or the man. Now you can guess why 1 have
asked from Georgina this one proof of confidence and affection. Think you she will
give it?"
" It is in vain to deny that I etill love
Clara," Evelyn went on. "Onr last conversation renewed feelings which would task
all the energies of my soul to conquer.
What then? lam not one of those, the
Sybarites of discontent, who deem it impossible to conquer love, once convinced that
the love is criminal, and invoke the conscience to Bupport the heart. No; the heart
was given to the soul as its ally, not as its
traitor."
"What do you tend to?" aBked Mr.
Graves.
" ThiB," returned Evelyn. " If Georgina prove by her generosity that Bhe loves
me for myself, I will shut Clara for ever
from my thoughts. I am pledged to Georgina, and I will carry to the altar a soul
resolute to deserve her affection and fulfil
its vows."
" And if she reject you ?" cried Graves.
"Ah !" cried Evelyn joyfully. " If she
do, I am free onoe more ? And then���then
I will dare to ask, for I can ask without dishonor, if Clara can explain the past and
bless the future."
Toke here entered with a letter on a
salver, and having delivered it retired.

There was a very good attendance at. the
entertainment lust night in the Y. M. C. A.
hall, the per forniaiice. being thoroughly appreciated by those present. Mayor Quennell
presided, and tne entertainment opened
with u piano solo by Miss Fiddick und a
song by Miss Hums, after which u lecture
on " The Humorous Side of Life'" was
given by the Rev. R. R. Muitlaud, who congratulated the Mayor and Couucil ou their
election aud hoped that they would prove
to be the lust body that had ever graced
the municipal board.
The lecture was one of absorbing interest
and was delivered iu a most masterful manner, going into many humorous descriptions
of well-known satirists and their sayings,
and many "bou mots" and their origin,
alluded to the power of wit and sarcasm on
even the affairs of uutious, and showed by
explanation, how from the absurdity of
their conjunction of words, the rapid sentences of the descriptive showman become
humorositiec. The lecturer quoted portions
frorrr Dickens und other well-known writers,
and gave a shower of short, humorous und
satirical quotations, constantly eliciting the
laughter and applause of the audience. He
also gave many witticisms of Siduey Swift
and others, ol whom may be mentioned
Voltaire, Rabelais and Sheridan.
After the applause tendered to Mr. Maitland had ceased, Mayor Quennell came forward and in u few well chosen Words expressed his thanks lo Mr. Muitlaud for what
lie hud snid regarding the Council, he then
culled on Miss Barrett lor u piano solo
which did not mature, the evening then
closed with a song hy Miss Burns.
