The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.���No Ammonia; No Alum.
Used in Millions of Homes���40 Years the Standard
London, Dee. 19.���In the House of Com
moiis to-day, Lord Georgo Hamilton, formerly Firat Lord of the Admiralty, made a
motion rela'ive to Great Britain's navy.
The motion declared that it was necessary
that large additions should be immediately
maJu to the navy, and that the House
therefore demanded to be informed what
the intentions of the Government were iu
regard to strengthening it. Speaking on
his motion, Lord George said that nobody
could serve a term of office in the Admiralty
without being impressed with the disparity
between the naval expenditures of the different nations. The British nation, cum-
pared with liieotheis. lemained alums', nta-
tiouary. Great Britain's former distinction
as a sea power equal to hold ber own against
an European coalition had gone. It the
British fleet was to be kept in condition to
meet the combined fleets of any two nations,
larger expenditures coupled with prompter
action would be necessary. He did not
desire that the House should consider his
motion a parly move for voting a censure of
the Government It was made with a
view to giving the Government a chance of
explaining its policy to the House aud also
with a view to eliciting a statement to allay
the anxiety of the country.
When Mr. Gladstone roBe  to  respond to
Lord George  he  was  loudly cheered.    The
Prime Minster, wheu quiet  was restored,
e*id that it inns', have  as'onis'ied the house
to hear the right   honorable   member  from
Middlesex, (Lord George) describe  his motion as oue of a  private  member free from
party character and standing entirely apart
from a vote  of   want  of confidence in the
ministry.     A   motion   implying   that   the
house should take  out  of  the hands of the
executive of the Government  one of its pri
mary duties certainly amounled to censure.
It was now too late for  the right honorable
member  to  shrink   from accepting the full
responsibility    for   his    motion     concerning     the   condition    of    the    navy.      It
was   not   upon   a   chance   debate  nor   in
response to  assertions  which, even if  they
were true did uot embrace the whole aubject
that  the  House   could    pronounce a   reliable   judgment.    It would    be premature,
dangerous even for the Government to make
full statement as to its views concerning the
navy,   but  to   contend that the situation of
Great Britain   to-dav  was   one   of   emergency   and   danger   was   to   pronounce an
opinion which was   irrational   and  absurd
Ureat Britain remained notably advanced in
all her preparations for future contingencies
In the work of coustructingvesselsrequired,
the conn try was so far before othi r c 'Untries
that     it     could   justly     be     said    that
the strength of lhe   British   navy   excelled
that     of     any     two     other     countries.
To   compare    tho   relative     number     of
British warships with the French   and Russian   vessels   was   a   fallacious   test.    The
British ships were larger and of   better material than those that could be   set   against
them.    Great Britain at this moment had in
battleships 5o7,000 tons of fighting material
against France and Russia's combined  318,-
060 tons. Great Britain has nineteen battleships and France and Russia only   fourteen.
In war ships of all classes Great Britain was
stronger than any ihree   powers.    (Cheers.)
Eight of the ships   figuring   in   the Freuoh
and Russian navies were old wooden armored
ships of the style discarded as inefficient for
the British navy.  In every class of warships
the British  had   larger aud more power,'ul
vessels than the French  or Russians, (Cries
"Hear, "Hear").    It was  therefore absurd
to describe   the   present as  a  moment   of
danger   culling   for   premature settlement.
Great Britain's superiority in the  power  of
constructing warships was still   more  striking than her superiority in existing strength.
As to the future,   supposing   no new  ships
were laid down, he believed  that  in   1807,
although   France   and   Russia   might have
eight more battleships, they   would  still be
in     tbe     minority,     as     regards     'onu-
age.       Of       course,      Mr.        Gladstone
added, there   would   be  additions   to   the
British navy.    The Admiralty was engaged
in considering plans 10 strengthen I ho navy,
but thore wai  uo   ri asnu   for   prematurely
disclosing   what was  contemplated.     When
the   opportune   time   an'ived,   the   House
would learn of  these  plans.    In   th?mean
time the  Government should not be asked
to depart from the usual methods hy which
the vast, expenditures of  the  country  were
yearly provided for.    Mr, (Hailstone in conclusion expressed the hope   I hat   the House
would   not   lend   its   countenance   to   the
mot on, which, he   declared, marshalled the
party forces on   th*   qu�� stion   of   Imperial
defence.    It   was   a bad example  that   he
trusted   the House would  not  follow.    As
the Prime Minister   took   his   seat he was
again heartily cheered.
Arthur J. Balfour, Conservative leader in
the House of Commons, complained that
Mr. Gladstone afforded no information as to
what v�� u* 'he naval policy of the Government. The Opposition, said Mr. Balfour,
had carried patience to tlio extreme iu abstaining from p essiug the Government to
make a slaleineut, yet all information
had been refused. Now they were
tauuted with retting their parly above
their country and wiih Irving to make
party capital out of Lhe subject that ought,
to he kept nai ional. The only envenomed
party feeling yet perceptible in dealing wiih
the subject had b��en the   remarks   of   Mr.
emergency
moment
the
because     at.     me   p t-
seut        moment        the       Bn'ish        na*y
was   equal   to    the   French   and Russian
navies, would not hold.    There  was never
an emergency unless it was too  late   to  re
pair.    The anxiety felt was not in regard to
the   present but in   regard  to the   future.
Every mouth now was wasted and   Ihe  loss
resulting could uot bo repaired   by  sudden
effort.    Now was the appointed time.    The
Prime Minister in arguing thit  the  British
navy   now   was   not   inferior to what   the
Russian   and   Freuch   navies   would be in
IS!)7, had not taken acuouut of the ships for
coast   defense   which   Frai ce  and   Russh-
had   in process   of    construction.      Those
dowers were now building ships,   which,  it
was true, could not mu.ke long voyiges,  but
which from their   construction   and   armament, were capable of taking  part in a contest with battleships.    Takiug  these things
into consideration   Great   Britain, in   IS97,
would he inferior   to  France and Russia by
eighteen ships  capable of tilting pirtiua
great naval battle.    He (Balfour) could   not
make   out   why   the   Prime  Minister  had
selected     1897       for     the     comparisen,
for J 896 would be a more critical   period.
The Government, do what  it   could, would
not be able to place the navy on an equality
with the   French   and   Russian   navies bv
1896.    The Prime Minister had   not   said a
single word showing that he   understood or
was   ready   to   take   Bteps   to    meet   the
danger,     which      was     a      subject     of
overwhelming importance.    In future naval
conflicts England would play  against opponents staking nothing, while England would
stake all.    No question of domestic   policy
compared in importance  with   the  tremendous issues   raised   by  the   motion of   the
right, hoa. member for  Middlesex.    If  the
Jovernment   did   what   was     asked,   the
country would not   feel   that the House of
Commons had   betrayed   the   trust imposed
upon them as guardians of   an   interest far
above historic party consideration.

do nothing, and as they had no firearms

her to the horses, placed her on one and
tied her to the saddle. They then led the
horses into the mountains.

Yates on the Political Situation.
New Y'ork, Dec. 19.���Following is Edmund YTates cable dispatch from London to
the Tribune : "There is no doubt that the
prospect of an early dissolution has become
more imminent within the last few days,
but this iB one of those cases in which the
ministry is aB much influenced by what people are saying as by their own decision, if
anything so positive can be predicted of a
combination headed by Mr. Gladstone; and
there are excellent reasons for doubting
whether what would be a nocturnal exit from
an impasse were auy one but the present
premier in command will be chosen. In
the first place the prime minister's
greed for office must be taken into account. He boasts to bis friends that
he will end his political life in power
and that it does not look like an appeal
to the country, except in a dilemma of even
more desperate than the present one. Then
the nature of his following must be reckoned
with. It is freely admitted on both sides
that for the present at all events the Conservatives are uot prepared for a struggle in
the constituencies. As I have already said
they say they could win without the Liberal
Unionisls, and in London alone it is stated
latterly they have increased by 50 per cent,
since the election **bf 1S92. Now the Glad-
stonian cliques are convinced they have ouly
one chance, aud that ia to keep the "old
man," as they elegantly phrase it, where he
is. In a word they are prepared at all costs
to hang together.

Gresham's Letter to Willis.
Washington, Dec. 19.���The material
points contained in Secretary Gresham's
letter to Willis of Oct. 18th are as follows:
The provisional government was not established by the Hawaiian people or with their
consent. Tne queen refused to surrender
her powers to the provisional government
until she was convinced the minister of the
United States had recognized it as a dt facto
authority and would support and defend it
with the military forces of the United
States, and that resistance would precipitate
a bloody conflict with the forces. She was
advised to surrender by her ministers and
by the leaders of the movement for the
overthrow of her government, and was assured that if she surrendered, her cage
would afterwards be fairly considered
by the president of the United States.
The queen wisely yielded to the armed
forces of the United Stales at Honolulu,
relying upon t he States good faith and honor.
The president when informed what had
occurred, tried to undo the action of the
minister and reinstate her iu her authority
which she claimed as the constitutional
soveigu of the Hawaiian Islands The
president is satisfied that the movement
against the queen was encouraged and supported by the representative of this government in Honolulu, that he promised to
advance and aid ber enemies to set up their
government aud that kept this promise by
causing a detachment, of troops to be landed
from the United Slates steamer Boston aud
by recugui/.ing the provisional government
next d y when it was too feeble to defend
itself, and the constutional government
could successfully maintain its authority
against any threatening force other than
that of the United States, already
landed. The president has, therefore, determined that he will not send back to the
Senate for its action on the treaty, which he
had withdrawn from that body for further
consideration on the 9th of March last, ou
your arrival at Honolulu. You will take
advantage of an early opportunity to inform
the queen of this determination, making
known to her the president's regret at thu
reprehensible conduct of the American
minister and the unauthorized presence on
the island of a military force of the United
Slates whioh obliged her to surrender the
sovereignty for the time being, and rely on
the justice of this government to undo the
flagrant wrong done to her. You will at
the same time inform the queen that when
reinstated, the president expects she will
pursue a magnanimous course, granting full amnesty to all who
participated in the movement against her,
including all persons who are, or have been,
officially or otherwise, connected with the
provisional government; depriving them of
no rights. Having secured the queen's
agreement to pursue thiswise humane policy
you will then advise the president of the
provisional government, his ministers, of the
president's determination in the question
which their action and the queen's devolved
upon him, and that they are expected to relinquish to her promptly the constitutional
authority. Should they decline to pursue
the liberal course suggested or should the
provisional government refuse to abide by
the president's decision, you will report the
facts and await further instructions.

At Aut'imn Weddings.
High corsages are preferred for bridal
dresses, especially at church weddings. The
front can be rounded low or cut square in
the neck. A low corsage may be worn at a
home wedding in the evening. It will be a
compliment for the bride to wear her wedding dress at the wedding of a relation a
month after her own wedding. Of course
the orange flowers will be taken off and
merely lace or ribbon trimming used.
Gray brocade or violet satin will be handsome for the dress of the bride's mother at
a September wedding. Pale primrose yellow dresses of glace surah or of taffeta silk
will be pretty for bridemaids' dresses In
September.
White satin will be used for wedding
gowns in tho autumn, with chiffon and
pearl galloon trimmings. A maid of honor
in November should wear a white French
felt hat laden with white plumes. One little
flower girl is sufficient. Puce color and the
purplish red petunia, also dark green, will
be fashionable colors for brides' silk dreams
this fall, says Harper's Bazar.
Iteuia In Ilairdresslng*.
For evening wear with certain styles of
���ornaments it is necessary to dress the hair
high, and there also appears a great disposition to form the front hair in curls with
a decided point in the center.

NOVEL COIFFUHB8.
Some hairdressers have brought out tho
'1880 style of hairdressing with upstanding
loops of hair in ' front, which have found
favor with certain ultra fashionable women, but not with the world in general,
though certainly the hair is dressed higher
at the bock in the evening than in the daytime.
For elderly women the hair is becomingly arranged in soft wared baudeaui on
either side aod gathovd into a low soft coil
at the back.

Rainy T>ny Dress.
The long rain cloak is considered by many
ladies distinctly a mistake, as it clings
round the legs, making petticoats and
stockings muddy and sopping. The mackintosh is very hot. In place of either of
these not a few women adopt an entire
rainy day dress. Have a short lined skirt
of course blue or black serye and turn it up
with leather. The skirt should not be too
full, aud wear with this a single breasted
Jacket, with collar which will turn up or
down as required. Good strong boots, gaiters and a hat to match costume, or a plain
sailor, will complete a most sensible and
pretty rain dress. You will always be perfectly dry and avoid the hideous appearance of the ordinary woman In the rain.
Fashion's Echoes.
White is a prevailing color of the season,
And black, also very fashionable, is especially suitable for women who are no longer
In their first youth.
The colored drill and brown holland class
of dress, with shirt aod sailor hat, are now
prominent.
One is beginning to grow a trifle tired of
black satin and lace insertion as trimmings.
Radiating lines of ribbon starting from
the waist, near toget her and brought down
to within a few inches of the hem, where
each ended in a small bow, funned the
Unique and charming trimming of a young
girl's dress in blue and pink shot chiffon,
Some of the dotted colored muslins are

UTAH TO BE MADE A STATE.
We see it stated by the American papers
that Utah will shortly be admitted by the
present Congress to the rank of a State.
There is no doubt the bill will pass the
House of Representatives. There may be
Borne opposition in the Senate, but it will
pass there too in the end. The Democrats
want to increase their majority in the
Senate, and are looking to Utah as a means
of doing so. The Democrats therefore will
vote the bill through; any opposition there
may be will moBtly come from the Republicans. In population and resources Utah
is entitled to become a State; the objection
to making it one rests solely on the fact
that the majority of its people are Mormons.
This of itself would of course he no valid
objection, but the danger it involves is twofold. The Mormons, it is feared, may contrive hereafter to realize polygamy, notwithstanding their present professions of
willingness thit it shall be forever prohibited. It is further regarded as probable,
if not indeed quite certain, that, the new
state when create 1 will soon pins under ecclesiastical control, that is to say,
under the control of the authorities of the
Mormon church. It is feared that, this control will be absolute, secret and irresponsible, a veritable spiritual despotism exercised
through the officers of the Mormon church.
As to polygamy, the Mormons now say they
do not want it, and are or profess to be quite
willing that it should be prohibited by (J.ingress by special clause in the bill creating
the state, but a state once it is created is
sovereign and cannot be prevented from
amending its constitution by resolution of
the state legislature at any time, if a maj'*r-
ity of the members decide to do so. The
matter therefore will be entirely in the
hands of the Mormons once the hill creating
Utah a state is pissed. As to ecclesiastical
control by the heads of the Mormon church,
that, we think, is inevitable. But party exigencies make the erection of Utah into a
state more or less desirable, and therefore
it is to be done, no matter what the ultimate consequences may be.
They seem to be making some progress in
the demarkation of a buffer state between
the French and British possessions in
further India. The French have appointed
commissioners to settle the business, and no
doubt the Rritish Government will at once
do the same, if, indeed, it has not been
already done. Then the next thing will be
a meeting of the commissioners, to he followed by a treaty. Afterwards will follow
disputes about the meaning of the treaty,
what was intended on both sides. In diplomatic work of this sort with the French,
the British usu illy get the worst of it, and
a war commonly ends the business, in
which the French in their turn get worsted.
This has been the ordinary course in Buch
cases iu former times, aud it will very likely
be the ultimate outcome in the present case
too. The French have no business in further
India at all, except to act as a thorn in the
side of the British. It would be just, as
well lo take the hull by the horns at once,
and drive them out forthwith. This might
be made one condition of the British joining
the triple alliance, It would doubtless
cause a great war, but to all appearance
such war will come shortly anyway, and it
would olearly he for the interests of England to h ive allies in it and not to stand
aloue.

Monte Video, Deo. 18.���Word has just
been received here that Gen. Hipnlito, with
his division of troops from Uruguay and
Brazil, encamped last Friday night in the
desert four leagues from Sau Enjonio, on his
way to Santa Ana. Gen. Daniel Martine
has more than a thousand men iu his division, as has been ascertained, and is marching against Hipoliln to give battle. The
steamer Santos, which is being used in the
service ot Minister Menteiro, Brazil's representative here, arrived to-day with more
ammunition for Peixoto's forces. The government of Rio GrandcdoSulhas contributed
the steamer Solio to the loyal fleet, gathering here, and that vessel lias reached the
bar of the Rio Grande river with four thousand nflcs and a million cartridges. The
New York Herald's correspondet at Rio
sends woul that the Nictheroy, now at Pernambuco, which was purchased in New
York by Peixoto, is changing her crew whioh
she enlisted in that city for a crew of
native Brazilians. Peixoto has revoked his
decree for the expulsion of foreigners from
the capital.

They are having awful weather in Toronto. There was a great rain storm nt; Monday. The rain froze as it fell and, by the
weight of the ice thus produced, the
branches of trees were broken all over the
city, a'most blocking up the streets in some
parts. The losses of the street cat* company
owing to the storm are set down at $25,000.
Telegraph and telephone lines are down in
all directions. The winter olimate of Ontario may be healthful for vigorous people,
but it mus'. be admitted that it is sometimes

Prendergast Proves Himself Sane.
CHICAGO, Dec. 19.���Dr. Dewey, for fourteen years medical superintendent at the
insane hospital at Kanakee, was a witness
for lhe defuuse iu the I'lendergaBt trial today. He was presented with a typewritten
���ut of hypothetical propositions embracing
the circumstances, aud after reading them
said: "Assuming the facts as set forth here
are true, 1 should say he ia not meulally
sound ���that he was insane. I examined
him four Limes. He is uilltcied with a sort
of mental defect due to imperfect development of his faculties known as paramo I
reached the conclusion that he know the act
he did was contrary to the law of the land
and contrary to the moral law." "Was it
possible for him lo have refrained from the
act if he had the will lo do so?" "1 think
ho was impelled by his delusiou to do the
act."
A sensation came on the cross-examination. A dramatic scene was created by
Prendergast, and turned against him by
Trude, Tne expert became a witness for
the prosecution before he left tho stand,

President Peixoto hopes shortly to have a
navy that will be able to match that of Admirals Mello anil ita Gama. The America
and Nictheroy are on their way out from
the West Indies to Montevideo, where the
Tiradantee aud Bahia are, and where a rendezvous of l-'oixoto'a warships is expected to
take place. The Ni :l heroy, i*. appears, ia
armed with dynamite guns, and is expected
to do great execution; but if ihe Brazilian
sailors don't improve much in their gunnery
they are much nioio likely to hurt themselves with their dynamite guns than the\
are to hit the ships of the insurgents. The
Brazilian civil war seems mainly to have
demonstrated what wonderfully bad gunners
theBrnzilian sailois are, and how good for
nothing war ships manned with such crews
can be.

We take the following information regarding the strength of the British army
from a contemporary: "Sir Clnrles Dilke
has been lecturing on the strength of
European armies. The pay in the British
army is about twice as high as in the German army, and nearly twice as high as in
the French army. In fact, while the British
army is not half so strong as that of Germany, France or Russia, the annual outlay
upon it is about ��88,600,000, against ��83,-
500,000 for the German army and ��28,000,-
000 for that of France. There are under
the British colons about 850,000 men. This
includes 137,000 regulars on the home establishment, 55,000 first-class reserve, 113,000
militia, 3,000 channel island militia, 11,000
yeomanry, 224,000 volunteers, 74,000 European regulars in India, 125,000 native
troops in India, about 80,000 militia in
Canada and Australia, and other bodies
which make up the total."

eventB|whioh led up to the revolution in the

into it, and the connection which the United
Siatishad witli the Hawaiian imbroglio.
After a brief discussion thi-n resolution was
refotred to tho committee on rules.
Mr. Boutelle of Maine, ofl'ored a resolution
of which he asked immediate consideration.
The resolution staled that the president iiad
ignored the rights and prerogatives of Congress aud had assailed its dignity. Mr.
Boutelle t^poko io support of his resolution
and appealed to the House, us one of the coordinate branches of tho Congress which the
president had ignored to assert its rights.
The point of order was frequently mado
that Mr. Boutelle waB not speaking to a

finally referred to the oommittee on foreign
affairs.
The uvgent deficiency bill next cropped
up and tbe paragraph providing for pension

Jcllet, alias Butler, who was convicted of
trying to pass a forged draft, for 5500(1 on the
Bank of Montreal at New Westminster, has
been sent up for live years in the peni on-

Rev. J. E. Coombs, the retiring pastor of
Calvary Baptist, chuich, Viotoria, has decided that his resignation must take i il ot
lhe last day of this year, though willing to
supply the pulpit for a few weeks longer, or
until a new pastor is engaged in the interval.
Concerning the weather for the winter,
Captain Reele, New Westminster's well
known weather clerk, says: "We have from
my observations, three hard winters uu*. of
five. Now we have had the three hard
winters, if the law of compensation exists, I
leave the thinking mind to make a ping ios-
tic for this winter."
A meeting of the capiaius of the sailing

Many pedestrians and others passing between Port Moody and New Westminster,

The Victoria Colonist is responsible for
the following dismal wail: "We trust that
the report that the Canadian Pacific Railway Company has contracted  for a steamer
to put en the route betweeu Victoria and
Vanoouver, in opposition to the Canadian
Pacific Navigation Company's steamers, is
not true. The Canadian Pacific Navigation
Company at great expense and very considerable risk has established the trade between the two places. It has done the
people good service. The company is only
now beginning to reap the fruit of its enterprise aud its energy. It is too bad for the
Canadian Pacific Railway now to step in and
reap where it lias not sown. The big company should not only live; it should let live.
It should not want the earth."
Last Sunday evening, for the second h'me,
a meeting wus held in St. Leonard's Hill,
New Westminster, by the congregation of
Holy Trinity Cathedral, to discuss ways
and means to cope with the church's financial difficulty. Fully a hundred ladies and
gentlemen were present, and listened with
much interest to the financial statement
read, which showed that the church owes
$900 to Rev. H. Irwin for stipend, and
some thousands of dollars to the Bank of
Montreal. Unless the interest on money
due the bank is forthcoming at once, a large
amount of church properly will be sold by
the sheriff to pay off that institution. It,
was also hinted that the church, too, might '-
be seized and sold. The outcome of the
difficulty will be looked forward to with |
much interest.
Travellers arriving from the east during I
the last few days report having passed!
through oue of the worst blizzards ever ex- ���
perienced on the lino of the Canadian Pacific
railway. On one train, which came in 29
hours overdue, the passengers had a rather
trying time when stalled between two
stations on the prairies, as for 24 hours they
had nothing to eat excipt some very light
refreshments obtained at a section house,
and the supply of coal for the engine run
ning very low before help arrived there was
a good deal of suffering from cold. The
storm raged so fiercely that lhe snow found
its way into the sleeping cars even through
the double windows. The fall of snow iu
the mountains is said to have bsen already
this season nearly as great as the usual
average for the entire winter.
The British Columbia correspondent of
the Canada Lumberman,in the current issue
says : Tho shingle manufacturers and dealers of the Puget Sound district have, I
understand, formed an organization, which
they hope may be worth more to them than
some previous efforts in a similar direction.
All must put up a forfeit, dealers and manufacturers, and this factor in the combine is
expected to keep possible refractory members in the traces. A canvass is to be made
of the whole trade ill Washington and Oregon so tbat there may be perfect unanimity
in the step. Conditions of the agreei'imnt
arc to go in force at the first of the yenr
when prices for 1894 will be adopted. Shingle
men of British Columbia will watch with
some interest the outcome of this combine.
Prices here have been anything but satisfactory, but. there has been nothing approaching the demoralization that has existed
among the cedar shinglemen of Uncle Sam's
domain. A strengthening of conditions
there will no doubt be helpful to conditions
bete if they can be made to prevail.
The Coast Seametis' Journal of San Fran-
oisoo of a recent date has the following:
"Under the caption of'A Plucky Captain'
an evening paper of last week tells the story
of the ship John A. Briggs which left Nanaimo, B. C., shorthanded because the
captain refused to pay the going wages of
that port. The Briggs is a 2033 ton ship
and her icgulnr oompletment is eighteen
men, and little enough, too. On Ibis trip
she arrived with only seven men before tbe
must. And this is what the evening piper
rills pluck! If anything serious had happened t'* the vessel ii is likely the underwriters would have oalled the captain's ho'.
by another name. As it happened,
tho Briggs encountered rough weather,
which, if we may credit the log book, came
nuar being tho end of tbe plucky captain
and his scab crew. For a whole week it
said the crew had not an bom's sleep. "It
was risky work, but I knew my ship and
knaw I could handle her like a yacht," said
the gallant skipper to a newspaper man,
and, of course, the safe arrival of the Briggs
iB proof of what he says (?). And he says
further that he can go to sea in any weather
with Beveu good men aboard. Very likely
he can; but. he should remember he has one
life only, and that if anything happens he
is not likely to live to change his mind
about the ability of seven good men to
handle u 2000-ton ship. Tho captain
"squared it" with his seven good men
hy the promi8r of $20 extra among
them, aud, being good men, of
course, they accepted it. The question here
arises: Is i?20 a fit stake against the lives
of seven good men? Leaving out the opinion of the men themselves, does not this
sound like the arrangement of a suicide
club? All things considered, we think it is
time somebody in au'horlty called the
plucky captain down and gave him to understand that lives and property are not to
bo wantonly risked for the bauble reputation of being able to defy the Sailors' Union
and to get men under wages. Where were
tho authorities whoso diity it was to see
that ships do not go to soa shorthanded?
Wero they "in it" for a share of the munificent $26? Hereisa revelation for people who
write about '\merican ships being manned
at the rate of three men for every200 tons!"|

THE WELL BRED GUEST.
Hints For a Pleasant Visit���The Complimentary Utterances at Parting.
And now to the guest a word in season,
stiys Good Housekeeping. To be the charming and welcome visitor, be punctual at
meals; of affairs of an unpleasant character
happeningin the household take no heed.
To interfere with nr order the servar.' ��� Is
very bad form. Above all, corn tnoto er
people's children. Mothers invarial
sent t his, and one taking t his liberty is considered a very interfering person, Al the
family bedtime exprt >..,*i willingness to retire. Never monopolize the conversation
at tabic. There is a valuable addition to
every home and its Inmates in tbe ready
listener, who is sought for and appreciated.
In England a visitor is alio wed the morn
Ing to himself. He can drive, walk, ramble in the woods, .study in his own room
and do whatever his predilection dictates,
recollecting that the dinner and evening
belong to his host and hostess.
Do not make a false start in going, either
from a brief call or a lona sojourn. In the
former case simply rise, say such few parting words as are Decessary���and go. Do
not keep others waiting while you rattle
on, nr think of other things which might
be siiitl. When the time fixed for the end
of a visit ha-i arrived, act upon the same
principle.
Tho hostess will doubtless say, "I wish
you eould remain with us longer," anil iu
doing so will indirectly testify to the pleasure whioh the visit has afforded. Hut this
kindly utterance should not be taken as a
request tu the Lvui'.-t to break up ber own
plans in order to tarry longer. Likewise
when the latter responds: "Thank yuti. The
time really seems vary short, as it has been
so happily sp.'tit,''she has made a return
of courtesy in kind which will be much
more pleasant ly recalled in after days than
a too literal compliance with the complimentary utterance of the hostess. It is always desirable in parting from our friends,
whether for an hour or fur an eternity, to
leave with them agreeable impressions and
recollection*.        	
A Hint For Young Visitors.
A person visiting a house should never
confine bis or her attention to any one particular member of the family; kindness,
attention, courtesy should be extended to
all, and cure should be taken by any young
person who is the friend of younger members of the family that deference be paid
particularly to the hunt aud hostess.

Yesterday was a busy day for the Show
-wOmmittee. Up to a late hour last uight
birds were arriving and being weighed and
placed in their respective pens, Mr.
Walker and Mr. Teague having their
hands full all the time. On viewing the birds they present in their
excellently roomy pens a very interesting
sight, all the birds being in nice condition
and scrupulously clean, and varying as they
do in size from the Cochins, nearly as big as
a goose, to the Bantams, one of which
weighed only seven ounces, aud which are
not much larger than pigeons. There are
also several varieties of pigeons on exhibition, and several fine turkeys and geese.
The management is to be congratulated
upon the excellent arrangement of the peiiB
and all their appurtenances.
Some exhibitors have been unable to
arrive as yet with their b ids, amongst
whom is Mr. Sturdy of Plumper's Pass, who
will arrive to-day with his ,'iti exhibits.
Some of Our Mineral Woaltti.
A fine display of minerals and gold bearing rock is on exhibition ai Mr. Raper's
store on Victoria Crescent. The foundation
is a piece of Nanaimo coal with some Texada
Island iron ore, Hanked by coke from Union.
Above these are soverallarge piecesol cbalco
pyrites from the shaft on Texada Island.
Tho ledge from which this was obtained
averaged in width three feet and is owned
among others by a number of Nanaimo
people. Among the other samples are zinc
ore, gold ore, galenas, terra cotta clay,
auriferous sulphates and pyrites, with some
pieces of variegated marbles.
Little Puck.
Frank Daniels is to make his annual bow
to a Nanaimo audience to-night. The engagement of this favorite comedian and his
big comedy company is for one night only.
Daniels will be seen again in that furiously
funny fantastical farce, Little Puck, but in
bo different a form us to practically make it
a new play- Spectacular Little Puck 1b
what it is called now, and a carload of
scenery is to be used in the production to
carry out this promise. In this revival of
Little Puck, Mr. Daniels will sing, among
other things, several coster monger songs,
one of whioh will be en'irely new to our
theatre goers. The company will arrive tonight on the steamer Cutch. The management guarantee the performance to be first,

had been indeed only a dream begotten
of the fierce pressure of Ralph Kestrel's
personality upon the tempted woman .*-
imagination, aud the truth of that dr. a* ,
was simply an instance of tin ise strange
forebodings which are not uncommon in
general experience.
Her task was, therefore, to keep Dorothy in oblivion; bo she wrote to Muriel
O'Connor, excusing herself from attendance on her, and remained by her sister'a
Mile, to keep from her all knowledge of
me sensation of the hour. It was no
easy task, but "love will find out a way,"
and she succeeded in her purpose.
Five days passed.
The happiness of Dundas and his wife
seemed confirmed, and in the contemplation of their peace Laura found the
reward for her part in it.
Nor had she been without the comfort
and delight of reunion with her lover.
Willmore had written the kindest of
letters, and subsequently they had met
again and again, he always refraining
with true generosity from exacting any
confidence she did not voluntarily bestow. And, sorely as it pained her to
have secrets from him, she dared not
breathe a word that night by chance
imperil her sister's happiness. A secret
*, is no secret when it is no longer locked
fast in one person's bosom. For herself,
she would trust Willmore with her
honour and her life, but the safety of
Dorothy was surest while the past lay
buried and Laura herself held the key
of its tomb.
So Willmore waited in rain for relief
from the vague anxiety which oppressed
his love for this girl with the eyes of
truth and the face of purity; and the assassin of Ralph Kestrel went still un-
tracked, while the ri iferenoes to the crime
gradually faded out of the newspapers.
The time seemed to have come for
Laura to return to the house in Regent's
Park. She had written several times to
Muriel O'Connor, but no reply or message of any kind had come from her,
and Laura felt an increasing desire to go
back and banish all misunderstandings,
so far as regard to Dorothy's secret
would permit. But Dundas was very
loth to have Laura leave her sister. The
good ship Wanderer which he commanded had received a new cargo, and her
sailing-papers were made out for New
York. It would be a short voyage this
time���his last in the Wanderer���and he
I, thought it best that Dorothy should once
more be left at home, if Laura would
stay to keeii her company.
"You see, little wife," said he, "tbe
Wanderer ain't kinder fitted for womenfolk. She's a tub to the Neptune, which
1 shall be part-owner of when I return
from America, and I wouldn't have my
lass take a grudge against the life she'll
have to share with me for many a long
year. You wait for the Neptune. Dolly,
and I'll have such a stateroom rigged
up for you as'll beat for prettiness and
snugness any home ashore."
Bui Dorothy felt a singular dread of
seeing her husband set sail once more
without her���a dread that surpassed that
which as a landswouian she held for tho
cockroaches, which the Captain freely admitted would he found in swarms on
board the old Wanderer.
She referred the decision to Laura,
who was at work in the little flower-
garden below. Looking down from the
bedroom window, Dorothy called softly
to her sister, who was standing motionless by the group of hollyhocks and sunflowers, contemplating a gleaming object she was holding iu her hand which
she had found in the flower-bed.
"Laura, Laura dear!"
Softly as the summons came, Laura
started with strange agitation ; instantly
she hid the treasure trove in the folds of
her gown; her back was turned to the
window from which her sister had
spoken. She answered without turning
round or looking up:
"Yes."
Her voice sounded strangely hoarse
and hollow.
"The Wanderer sails to-night. We
want to consult you whether I shall go
to America with Ben."
Laura answered nothing; she neither
looked up al the window nor turned to
enter the house and join Dorothy.
Captain Dundas put his great red face
by the side of his wife's pretty one, and,
with one arm round her neck, hailed her
sister through what he called the porthole.
"Itain'tany use, Laura; I ain't got
the heart to persuade her not to come,
and she kinder don't know her own mind.
She hates the blackbeetleH, but, by
thunder. I do believe she loves me! You
shall take an observation for us, my
dear.    Shall she go or shall she stay?"
Then Laura spoke again in that hoarse
hollow tone.
"Take her with you," she said.
Then, turning, she raised her eyes and
saw the fond picture smiling upon her
from the window above: the soft cheek
of the .pretty little wife nestling in
t he sailor's great curly beard, and the
afternoon-sun dancing in the 'happy eyes
of both: and she repeated:
"Take her with you, Ben," this time
with a ring of passionate entreaty in her
voice.
Presently she crept steathily to the
attic where she was accustomed tosleep,
nnd there, with the door locked and
barricaded against interruption, fell to
cleaning and polishing a rusty dagger of
Oriental workmanship, concealing it at
length in a crevice where no one would
find it���no one would seek to find.
And in nervous haste, crept silently
and with a face of stone, she prepared
all things for her sister's departure on
the Atlantic voyage.
And when Dorothy and Dorothy's husband remarked upon her taciturnity and
depression, she once or twice glanced
mournfully at her sister, and strove to
say some words attributing this gloom
lo the separation that was about to take
place. But the effort did not well succeed in deceiving them.    There were no
��� iger questions as t" their return; in-
.. 1. it alum ' * eeui id that Laura would
hfive been content never to see her sister
again, She would nor accompany them
on board tin* .-hip. and her last embrace
was so cold thai Dor ��� hy wi ui away in a
stupor of astonishment, and. thinking of
ii as bIic wns being rowed down the
river, broko * uddi i .   into tears.
"You   ain't   quarrelled   with Laura,
have you, lass?" whispered the  Captain
as he drew his sobbinir wife to his side.
ile had le. u a pained observer  of the
. ter's altered manner.
"No, Lei*, no.'.-n.-wored Dorothyvery
earnestly. "She is the best, the dearest,
; .-��� kindest sister in the world; she always has been. But something has come
. cween us. I feel it, but I do not know
wiiat it is."
Dundas did his best to comfort her.
"Cheer up, little one," Baid he. "Women have their fads and fancies. This is
only a shadow."
He guessed aright: it was only a
shadow that had come between these
t ..!*, but it was the shadow of a crime.
CHAPTERXX
AN ALIBI,
In the early hours of the morning immediately following the tragedy on the
Underground, a constable, tramping
heavily along the road that skirted the
house at the corner, cast the gleam of
his lantern upon the gate in the wall,
tested it with his hand, and passed onward upon his beat.   Scarcely had he
turned the corner when a muffled figure
approached that gate with swift, silent
steps, and, after furtively glancing
around, let itself in with a pass-key.
Choosing the dew-spread lawn and the
sheltering darkness of the shrubbery,
Dennis Donovan���for it was he���crept
steathily into the arbour, and was lost in
its opaque shadows,
The blackness of the night slowly
turned to gray, and from gray to a rosy
mellow dawn-radiance. The birds twittered among the opening blossoms and
in the branches that swayed gently in
the fresh morning air. The day grew
stronger, bolder, happier, and the risen
sun struck its gay beams slantwise upon
the windows of the room where .Muriel
O'Connor lay in restless slumber upon
the couch where she had flung, herself
some hours before, to sob out her humiliation, bitterness, and despair. As the
hours passed, and the house remained
closed and lifeless. Dennis Donovan,
peering from a recess of the garden
arbour, grew more and more impatient
and apprehensive, and raged against
the sluggard habits of Muriel's household. At length, however, there were
signs of awakening. An upper window blind was drawn, and a little
later there were sounds of bars and bolts
being withdrawn. Presently a maidservant threw open the drawing-room
windows, flung some mats on to the
lawn, and passed round the house to the
kitchen premises. As she disappeared,
Donovan glided from the arbour and
entered the drawing-room with a wolf
like stealth and celerity. Unnoted he
ascended the staircase, and, opening a
door ilium the floor above, found himself
in Muriel O'Connor's boudoir. He turned the key in the lock inside, and tapped
several times at an inner door. The
sound awoke Muriel. She started up,
and for the moment wondered at having
lain there fully dressed, But the tap
ping was renewed, and she responded to
it by going at once to the door.
It was not without amazement that
she stood face to face with Dennis Donovan, and beheld him mul stained, haggard, pale, and unkempt, with a glare of
mingled f( focity and terror iu hi*- eyes.
"What has happened?' she exclaimed
with a horrified misgiving ar her heart.
"Justice," he answered simply, and
placed in her hands tin* letter written
by Kestrel on the railway-platform, she
read a denunciation of 1; rself as a woman of treachery and intrigue���one who
fur treasonable stratagems would abuse
hospitality and make a neck of an honourable, trusting man, She read Kestrel's
warning to Cecil Chester, that she would
win his love only to disgrace and destroy
him.
In truth she had been nncons lions that
her conduct or designs had borne so evil
a complexion in dealing with ( Hiester, or
with any other man who h i i fi* i juented
her drawiu;; room. Her senl ui'til was
on** of high indignation agiinst the
traitor whom she had befriended. How
did he dare write thus of her V What
lies, what foul, cruel lies were these!
"Is this justice?" she asked of Donovan.
"It is treachery," replied he; adding
significantly: "justice has been done."
"You have denounced him to the society?"
"i have anticipated the sentence."
"You have killed him?"
"Hush1   Yes, I hive killed him."
Muriel s( ire 1 at I he i *s; win in horror.
"The society will ;io ipholdyou. You
had no righl t" nil1 R dpi) Kestrel without an order from the council."
"There is exception for emergency
cases. This man was dangerous. It was
my duty to stay him from doing mischief."
"But not to kill him."
"Yes, to kill him."
"I tell you, no! I am a member of
the society; I am on the council. I know
our law restraining private vengeance.
You must have the consent and authority of, at tin least, one member of the
council to entitle you tostrike down even
such a wretch as this."
"Sure, 1 had that same consent and
l authority.''
"lla I From whom?"
"From your own self, for sure?"
*!' "nn me?   From me?"
"Sure, you towld me, when you let me
out in saycrot, to follow him and take
care that he did no harm. I was to act
foryiv, as seemed best to Dennis Don-
* ovan, for sure "
