correspondent of lhe Uuited Press I'oi wards
tho following mail advices brought from
Brazil by the steamship Clyde: Rio de
Janeiro, Dec. 27*h. An important baLtle
haB beeu fought in the state of Sao Paulo, in
which the government troops,under General

There were 16,000 troops engaged in the
battle. Five hundred of the Government

tween the goverumeub aud Lie insurgent
forces is going on all the time. The government intercepts all communications. Santos
has been blockaded since the begiuuing of
December by the Republic* and other insurgent warships. Tbe troops under the insurgent General Sariva are eight or ten days
march from Sao Paulo, making a movement
to the west toward Italaire to fetch horses
and forage.
Pkbnambuco, Dec. 31st, 1893.���The English officerc and sailors who brought the
torpedo boat Auiora from England for the
Braziliau government sail for home on the
the steamship Clyde. The warship Parhyba
left Pernambuco on Dec. 27 th. It is said
that she was bouud for the convict island,
Fernando N ronha, to complete her cmv
from among the convicts. It is also said
thai, Admiral Mello, with tbe Aquidaban,

Lisbon, Jan. 9.���An American merchant
and an officer who were passengers on the
steamship Clyde from Brazil were interviewed this evening. They said that the
government warships Nictheroy and America were at Pernambuco on December 1st.
The torpedo boats Teiscen, Javali and
UeBtroyer were being towed to Pernambuco,
and were expected to arrive about January
10th. The United States cruiser San. Francisco entered the harbor of Pernambuco on
December 31st. The British and French
residents of Pernambuco   favor  the insur-
fents, the Americans are on the side of
'eixoto and the Germans remain neutral.
New York, Jan 9.���Sailor Muehieck. of
the steamer Herscheil from Bio, refused to
talk about the Stanton affair, but on the
back of his diary and apart from the consecutively dated entries, there waB one
which he had perhaps overlooked, when he
placed the book at the disposal of a reporter.
If it states truth it adds an interesting and
hitherto uutnld chapter to the story of the
Stanton episode. Here it is: "October 22nd.
The admiral's orderly reported to Admiral
0. F. Stanton that Admiral de Mello was
approaching aud about to board our ship.
The adrnir.il at once dressed in full
dress to meet Admiral de Mello
at the starboard gangway. They met
with smiles aud pleasure. The admiral
showed Admiral de Mello to hiB stateroom.
They stayed within about one hour. Aa
they were going toward the gangway, Admiral de Mello requested that no salute be
given him, but Flag Lieutenant Smith had
already given the word to the officer of the
dock to salute Admiral de Mello. The admiral was just leaving when the salutes
were given. Captain Terry, after the first
shot, give orders to stop firing. The
second and third shots followed, and the
full salute was fired. As tho third shot
was fired, Admiral de Mello stopped his
launch and took off his hat till the salute
was finished.
"October 23rd ���Between twelve and one
o'clock    Admiral    Sainton    told    Captain
Terry on the quarterdeck, that he
wonted him and 1*lag Lieutenant Smith
to accompany him at 2 p. m. io visit Admiral de Mello, aboard the Aquidaban.
Captain Terry said he would be d ���d if he
would. They then pari ed. At 1:30 p. CO,
the admii al called his orderly and asked if
his boat, was ready. The orderly told him
it was just being manned. Tne Admiral
came out and was met by Captain Terry.
They had a few words, when Admiral Stanton requested the captain to put on his full
dr* BS) aud be ready at 2 p. m.     The captain
said   ho   would   bo  d d   if he   would.
���'Then," said Admiral ittantnu, "I shall
take ateps to force you to " They parted,
the admiral going tohisstateroom.anutelling
his orderly lo let him know when it was teu
minutes to two. Caplain Terry walked
about the quarter deck, ihou to his room.
At about teu minutes to two o'olock, Admiral
Stau on, Captain Terry and flag Lieutenant
Smith met ou deck. Words were exchanged
between them, wheu Captain Terry remarked that Admirul de Mello was "a d���d
sooundrel " Then the admiral said he waB
no such thing: that he was a good educated
gentleman. They then went to the gangway and got into tho boat. The visit lasted
half an hour. When they were leaving the
Aquidaban they were saluted. They
arrived about fifteen minutes later."
A Disgraceful Affliir.
Halifax, N. S , Jan. 9 ���The inquest on
the bodies of the four men drowned in the
gold mine at Montague was a disgraceful
Faroe. The foreman of the mine which was
the scene of the disaster was the foreman of
the jury, and four other members of the
jury were relatives of the victim, a proceeding in  direot   violation   of   the   law.    The

S-ll tH
cororer, Dr. Weeks, was under the influence
of liquor, aud he frequently left the jury
room for more drink; he announced that he
was the representative of Queen Victoria,
and therefore above the mere local laws of
the country. When H. Mclnnes, who appeared for the relative of the Victims, and
C. S. Harrington, Q.C., who appeared for
the management of the mine, protested
against the intoxicated coroner's action,
that official threatened them with arrest
and refused to hear them. Inspector of
mines Gilpin suggested that the evidence
should be taken'y a ihorthand   reporter,
but the coroner replied thai tie never allow-

Clancy, one ot ttie underground bosses, to

replied: "There is no danger. We are too
busy getting gold now to look out for that."
The counsel retired long before the farce
ended, and the jury finally brought in a
verdict of accidental death.
A CABLE EXTENSION.
Eastern Business Men   Want   Communication With Jamaica.
Halifax, Jan. 9.���[Special.]���The busiuess men of eastern Canada are awakening
te the great necessity for the extension of
the Halifax and Bermuda cable to Jamaica
and the other West Indian islands. Imperial naval and military officers on the
North American station fully realize the absolute want of the cable for Imperial purposes. Though adverse to expressing their
upiuibns for publication, th**ydouui< ut-at-
tate lo privately express their amazement
that the Imperial Government should be so
blind to Imperial interests as lo still continue to neglect to secure direct cable connections with their West Indian colonies.
A couple of years ago tbe war authorities
woke up to the importance of the islands,
and approved au elaborate scheme for their
defence, but strangely appeared to forget
the fact of first importance, viz., that Britain was dependent upon the whims and
fancies of two foreign nations, the United
States and Spain for cable communication
with these important outlying coloniea. It
is exasperating aud humiliating to Imperial
officers here to know that every message to
Imperial officials in the West Indies from
London goes through New York,Key West and
Cuba, instead of via Halifax and Bermuda.
But it is not for Imperial purposes, however, that the business men of Canada demand the extension. Ic is for purely Canadian commercial purposes.
Interviews with A. G. Jones k Co., Mus-
grove & Co., Pickford k Black, J. A. Chip
man & Co., and others who do a large business with Jamaica show that the extension
to Jamaica and the other islands is absolutely essential to the development of Canadian trade. Four steamers a month are
now running from Halifax to these islands.
Thes*�� boats are now carrying direot the
large trade that formerly went from Canada
nia New York and are also developing many
new lines of business, hut exporters are
greatly handicapped by the inefficient service and the exorbitant cable rates, $1.45 a
word, charged by the American and Spanish
companies. Canada long monopolized the
fish trade of the West Indies, but met with
serious competition from the American
direct steamers aided by daily cable quota
tions. To enable Canada to hold its trade
the Dominion Government pays $50,000 a
yoar subsidies to direct steamers. At the
present time the West India Islands buy
nearly $4,000,000 worth of flour s.uffs and
other products of tlie United -Stales to the
value of $35 000,000 per annum.
This could nearly all be supplied by Canada, but New York has the tremendous advantage of having the daily quotations of its
market published in all the West Indies
while not a single Canadian market price is
quoted. An extension of the Bermuda
cable would not only enable Canadian market quotations of flour aud all other products to be published in the West Indies
deily, side by side with the American prices,
but as we have equally frequent steamer
communication aud *\ ould have the advantage of 50 per cent, cheaper cable rates, the
beuefit to Canadian trade cau hardly be
estimated. Besides, though the West
Indies are intensely British, all its
news is filtered through United States
channels, an.l Canadian news, no matter
how important, is a rare commodity there
With the extension of the cable, the West
Indies would get its news from Canada, ami
would the,elore be still more drawn to this
country by being brought into daily eom-
muuication. J. A. Chipman, a Hour merchant who has devoted ppeoial attention to the
possibilities of the development of trade be-
tween Canada and the West Indies says: "1
regard the extension of the Halifax and
Bermuda cable to Jamaica as of very great.
importance to Canadian commerce. 1 believe Ihat the possibilities of future trade
between Canada and the West Indies
cannot be fairly estimated. We produce
in large abundance very many of the
B'aple articles, winch they require, and
��Inch we can furnish i hern cheaper than any
otiior country; therefore the extension of
the cable service seems to be one of the
lacking complements lo the direct linm of
steamers running to these islands. The
extension of the cable, with tho lower rates,
will bring the t"'o countries into immediate
daily contact for business. I cairn >i con- I
ceive of anything which would be of greater
assistance in aiding growing trade so essential to Canada."
W. A. Black, of Pickford & Black, who
are running fortnightly steamers lo Jamaica, I
regards the cable extension as of the greatest
importance. Their boats are working up an
entirely new trade in butter, all kinds of
canned goods, boots and shoes, clothes,
carriages, all sorts of live stock and farm
products generally. List week iliey shipped
three thousand barrels of flour in one vessel.
Trade in these lines could be developed to
an almost unlimited extent if aided by a
direct cable. Mr. Black thought the business between the two countries was assuming auch proportions that would insure the
cable being a good paying investment to any
country.
The Pacific Cable.
Montreal, Jan. 9.��� [Special] ��� Sauford
Fleming, CMC, will sail for Canada by
the Cunard steamer Etruria on Saturday.
He and Sir Chailes Tupper yet hope to meet
Lord Pvipon, Secretary of State for the
Colonies, who has been ill. Mr. Fleming
says he haa drawn up a strong memoranda
in reference to his Pacifio cable   scheme for
the Imperial Government, allowing practically the unanimous support which the cable
haa received in Australia, where it is ex��
pected the Imperial Government will do
everything in its power to encourage the
project, fne strongest kind of pressure,
however, is being brought to bear against
the Pacific cable in the press and with th*
Government, by Sir John Pender and tho
Eastern telegraph monopoly. The Colonies
will probably have to carry through the
scheme themselves and Mr. Fleming figures
that it is quite feasible for them 'odoao.
Il i.< i oped that the Canadian-Australian
conference at Ottawa in June will awaken
the Imperial Government to tho keen colonial chagrin aroused by Imperial apathy.
PREPARING FOR ACTION.
The Hawaiian   Provisional   Government
Getting Ready for Trouble.
Victoria, Jan. 9.���[������special.]���The Honolulu Bulletin, organ of the queen's party in
Hawaii,announces that the Provisional Government are preparing to resent hostile action by the United States or any other
power, by distributing r.fles and ammunition to all citizens who will give receipts
theiefor. The palacie, now knowu as lhe
executive building, is also being provisioned
for siege, aud four large tanks of water have
been placed in the basement, this being
taken us proof positive that the government will fight. Already President Dole is
having trouble wiih his hired battalionB.
The police, who coustitnte the most formidable force,are resigning in dozens and scores.
Lieutenant Kealakai, of the first watch,who
was one of the first to strike, explaining
that while quite ready to assist the existing
government in the main'enance of law and
order they had not enlisted to make war
upon the United States or repel attack by
that or any other foreign power. Complaints
are frequent of insult to native women by
the imported riff-raff aoldiery, and theae in-
cidenta are doing much to strengthen the
cause of royalty with the whites aa well as
confirm its place in tbe hearts of the native
element.
The misconduct of the men while on
liberty is also a cause of alarm to the peaceful inhabi'ants, who have frequent collisions
Willi them and generally get the worst of it.
The provisional government's mercenaries
may siioi tiy become unmanageable, and securing dominion by force ashore, inaugurate
scenes of violence which the intervention of
the warships in the harbor will be required
to terminate.
A note of December 29th ia to ihe effect
that at a meeting of the American Citizens'
Leagua held lhe previous evening, a resolu-
iion i>as ail'.p .al that "if Congress decides
on tho res'.orati'.u cf the queen the members
of the league will lay down their arms and
aid in the restoration." On the other hand
the newly-organized corps of German sharpshooters known as the International Schr.lt-
aeh League will support "good and stable
government in Hawaii and the provisional
-government in particular, to the death if
required." This club is under the presidency of t'n -rlcs Klemme, and includes 56
members.
As to the attitude of foreign powers represented ou 'he scene of di**quiet, Captain
Rooke, of the British warship Champion,
announces that his ship will remain at Honolulu throughout the next few months for the
protection of life and property. No force
will be lauded unless necessary. The Japanese gunboat Naniwa has promised to pursue a similar C"urse, although the Japanese-
lean to the monarchy, knowing that the
provisional government is ii"t disp*sed to
grant them eufiai chisemeut. The missionaries are lending their weight against the
deposed queen, pointing lo the dethronement an an act of God lo which resistauce
would be worse than useless.
The latest sensations spruDg by the annexation papers are concerning the operations of two Plnkerton detectives injthe pay
of the royalists, (who *ire engaged to spy
upon f'resident Dole iu return for his dismissing i.Il the government employees
reading the Bulletin) and concerning the
declaration of Prince Albert Nunuikea, a
descendant of Kamehumeha the Great, for
annexation. Had not Queen Emma been
beaten iu her contest for tho crown by
David Kalakaua, Al**ert would now be the
reigning king. His letter to the press is
writteu iu good English. Says he: "Permit me, as the last representative of the
royal Kamehameha line, to say that the
course of your paper (lhe Star) ia in the best
interests of the Hawaiian people and that I
am with you heart and soul. My name
will be added to the roll of the Annexation
Club at once and in case of trouhle I will
join your forces with a rifle, To this the
royalists simply reply: " Sour grapea,
Albert isn't tho king."
Fiom the Advertiser[s, provision il government organ I it is learned ihat a new scheme
haB been developed by certain of the royalists :o transfer the capital lo Hilo, there
rally the forces ot the queen, aud then proceed to deeds of arms with Hilo as the baae
nf "p 'rutiona,
A Talc of tho Doldrums.
VlOTORIA,  Jan.   9���[Special]���Held   for
nearly four months   in   an   equatorial calm
until her provisions were exhausted and her
crew on the   verge   of   starvation   was the
terrible experience   of   the   American  ahip
Edward O'Brien, which had long been given
upas   lost.    Siie   left   the   Hastings   Mill,
Vancouver, B.C., early i*i   December, 1892,
wi'h a Itimner cargo, and nothing was heard
of her till   June   22ml   last,   when n'.te waa
s-ighied by the Australian   steamer   Gaelic,.
flying sign Is proclaiming that she was short
of food.    It was learned that   the   ship had
made     a     fine     run   down   the    Pacific
and     around     tbe     Horn,     but     when
near   the   equator bad been caught in one
of   the   dreaded   calms    there   prevalent.
F"r three mouths she remained  within  half
a mile of the spot  where the calm   waa first
struck, and during all that time there was not
enough wind to fill the lightest of her   sails.
Finally a email current, probably caused by
a storm many miles away,  served   to   send
her slowly out of the locality which   had  so
long threatened to be a place of  death   for
all aboard.    On thia current the ahip drifted
for another month.    Then a welcome breeze
| carried qer back into   the   patha   of   navi-
| gation.    When the Gaelio was encountered
I the O'Brien's water supply  waB   exhausted,
and foid down to 'he last ration.     In a few
' hours more thoie aboard would been beyond
| help.    After   receiving   supplies   the * ship
| proceeded on her way to London. NANAIMO, B. C, WEDNESDAY, JANUARY 10, 1894.

Toronto, Jan.* 8.���Qwing to the action
taken by the Britiah publishers, Burnett &

W. J. Gage & Co., a prominent publishing
firm of this city, have issued a circular to
retail dealers throughout the province, giving notice that they have takeu steps to
compel the publishers of high school readers
to withdraw that book from the market, it
being an infringement of the copyright held
by the Gage firm.
Rev. Dr. Pdtts has received a despatch

whom influenza has progressed into an affection of the lungs or heart or digestive or

not seem to be so deleterious now aB during
the first month ot the epidemic, still the
amount of sickness is much greater. Old

it is severe.

THE MAPLE RIDGE MEETING.
The Vancouver World of Saturday last
published a six-column report of the meeting at Maple Ridge on Thursday, called by
Messrs. Sword ami Kitchen, and attended
aUo by Premier Davie. The meeting was
presided over by Reeve Laity, wh i took the
chair a few minutes after 2 o'clock p.m.
The attendance was not numerous, only
about fifi.y electors being preseut. Mr.
Sword was the first speaker. His remarks,
as reported, were brief and not of much
importance, He referred to the forthcoming redistribution bill, and expressed his
belief that the New Westminster distriot
Would be divided into ridings. TV*e speaker,
of course, censured the Government for its
action in connection with the census returns,
and for not bringing down the redistribution bill last sesiion. He referred io the
petition of tin Constitul iooal Leigtte, v hieh
he had signed, and claimed that there was
nothing in it tit t could justify the assertion
that, they desired separation. He indulged
in the usual criticisms about the new parliament building) al Victoria, whioh he said
tho Government tan hurrying on wiih
undue haste, when notl.i g was likely to he
lost by delay, lie complained about the
state of the roads iu live district, and expressed his belief that the re boij why the

his friend Mi*. Kitchen  were in opposition.

would not h ve made so candid, and we
tniy add, bo truthful an admission,
Mr. T. E. Kitohen then addressed the
meeting. He began by alluding to thu redistribution bill, which he said ought to
have been introduced last session, Mr.
��� Kitchen was less candid than Mr. Sword.
He said he had beeu elected as an Indept ml -
pendent, and claimed that he had supported
the Government when it brought down legislation which he deemed tr be good. Ii I
must be confessed, however, that, he deemed t
most of it to he bad, for certainly plain men !
like Mr. Sword and ourselves can only class
him with tlie Opp 'silionitts, and if thel
naked truth must be told, with the mosi
extreme and virulent branch of them, who
can see no good in anything the Government doeB or proposes to do. Mr. Kitchen
treated hiB hearers to the usual rehash of
figures ahout the population, the voting
power of each distric', and the number of
representatives elected. He said that his
constituents were not satisfied with the appropriation which their district received
from the Government, but thai neither he
nor Mr. Sword could help that. They had
made out and sent in a memoranda of what
waB required, but they were not allowed a
voioe in the matter when the estimates were
prepared. It appears that these gentlemen
are not of so much importance in the eyes
of the Government as they are in their own,
and when they found this out they went
over to the Opposition. Mr. Kitchen expatiated on the great importance of the
New Westminster district, and then proceeded to criticise the Government's man
agement of the finances and ot things in
general.
Hon. Mr. Davie, on coming forward to
reply was reoeived with applause.
He said that the last speaker
had been discussing some matters
which required reform. He referred
particularly to section 18 of the
Municipal Amendment Act of last session,
which he characterized as  pernioious legis-

lation of the very worst sort, and promised
that the obnoxious clauses would be amended. He was free to confets that he was not
aware of the objectionable features of the
act when it was going through the House,
as his attention was engrossed with other
matters. The previous speakers had referred to the appropriations, and, as they
claimed, the unfair way they were dealt
with. He held in his hand a document, the
correctness of which could not be called in
question, which showed how this was.
There had been spent on Vancouver Island,
in 1890, $173,840; in 1891, $163,263: and in
1892, $208,088 -or a total of $545,191. On
the Mainland, iu 1890, there was spent
3337,203; in 1891, $335,402; and in 1892,
$433,362���a total of $1,11*6,117, or more
than double what waB spent on Vancouver
Isla d. During that time the revenue ob
tain-d from the Island, including land sales,
was $585,642.01, leaving a balance over expenditure of $40,401.01 to go to the general
purposes of the Government. Upon the
Mainland the revenue was larger; it was
$1,249,0(10 19. Taking from that the
amount expended, a balance of $142,943 19
remained for the general purposes of government. The correctness of these figures
had not been questioned. The land s lies on
the Mainland for the last three years
amounted to $491,310. Taking this from
the gross revenue we get the net revenue,
$757,74!).39. This shows that the expenditure on the Mainland exceeded the net
revenue by a sum of $348,307. On Vancouver Island the revenue was $585,572 01, the
land sales being $149,659 82. Deducting
this from the gross revenue we get the net
revenue of the Island, $435,912.19. The
expenditure on the Island during the past
three vc-ars, as stated above, amounted to
$545,191, Deducting from this the net
revenue on the Island, we have an excess of
expenditure on the Island over revenue of
Si 19,278.SI. Hence the municipalities of
both Mainland and Island have received
back during the past three years a sum
very considerably more than their contribution of taxes to the general revenue of the
province, This disposes of the argument of
the Opposition mid Independent members
so-called, like Mr. Kitohen, that the municipalities do not get fair play from
the Government. Men who go to the people
with statements representing that the
municipalities either on the island or the
mainland are pot fairly treated by the government, Mr. Davie, in view of these figures"
justly pronounces to l**e misohief makers.
Mi*. Davie next referred to the insincerity
of Messrs, Cotton and Brown, who aspire
to lead the Iudipoodeita so-called, In the
House of Assembly Mr, Brown and Mr.
Cotton claimed to wish to aot with the Government in bringing down a fair measure of
n distribution, They say, let us have representation .iccordirg to population. They
��ttnl to cut off the country dislriols���p *i*ket
boroughs a< they ual! them. The two
smallest oi ihese are Alberni and lhe Islands.
Bat bo h Mr Brown and Mr. Cotton in the
Legislative Assembly advocated Alberni
and he Islands' retaining their represen-
i i nt s, ft 'i the same th C iboi . Their
in i ��� n ity was patent. Mr. Divie observed
that w ; en the rodisi ribution I>:*1 was brought
do i ii would be found to do justice to all
sections of the country, fie .Iso deult
briefly with the parliament buildings' question, e^nd poiuted to the oxoelleut position
of British Columbia in the money markets
of tho world. Mr. Davie read to lhe meeting the not* f mou icoeBsion manifesto, in
uliich the Gov ��� or-G neral wns urged, if
he did nol veto the new parliament buildings act, to ." * il the prayer of the petitioners to separate from the island Mr. Sword
h d Baid tl* i i,,, such construction oould be
I ii ti| on the petition, but the people afior
i, e i g it read could judge  for  thamselvts.
(i a space will nol permit us to follow iu
detail tho remainder of Mr. D.vie's rep'y
to Messrs. Sword and Kitoben'a stricture.-'.
Lei i' suffice to sty that it was equally conclusive aud convincing with the specimens
given above, The meeting, though oalled
by their opponents, wai in reality a great
success for the Government, and we doubt
not will obtain for them the votes of  every
candid man present, who listened io Mr. j A MIDDLE-AGED WOMAN ns 1
Davie's reply. The meeting concluded with '
a vote of th'nks to Mr. Davie for his explanations of the Government's policy to
MecBis. Sword and Kitohen, and to the
chairman who so anly presided. Mr. Davie,
we think, cannot do better than attend all
Ihe me itings that M*'ssr- S vord and Kitohen
shall hereafter hold, and repent his explanations of the Government's policy.

family. It is a strange anomaly that men should be careful to insure their houses, their furniture, their ships, their merchandise, and yet neglect to insure their lives���surely the most important of all to their families, and far more subject to loss.
The  Grsat West  Life  Assurance  Company offers an exceptionally favorable Policy, at low
rates,'the security being proportionately aB good as the older companies.

A   CONVIVIAL   GATHERING.
Nanaimo's  Firefighters  Spend   a   Royal
Time at tlio Crescent.
Laat night the members *>f the Fire   Brigade collected iu a body at tho old lite hall,
and after the roll call, to the number * I   10
or so they marched lo   the   new   hall, from
where, at il o'olook, they   proceeded   to lhe
Creeeent Hotel, i" lhe excelli nt spread pro
vided hy Mr. Bennett.    After ample.justice
had been done to   the   liberal   provision of I
edible.1-, glasses weie til!* cl and cigars   light- i
edjaml Mr. .1. H. Pleace, ap chairman, proposed the health of their * xcellent host and
hostess  Mr. and Mrs.  Bennett,   whioh was
drunk with musical honor-.
Mr   II imeit in reph hoped that they had |
all enjoyed   themselves   aud ������wiulied every
BUCCeas to * he File Brigade.
Mr.   Picao.    then   proposed   Mr.   W.    T.. ;
Ogle,   the   visiting   representative   "f   Ihe
GuttaPereha  and    Rulilier   Manufiti.'lnniig
Company of Tot onto.
Mr. Ogle, in reply, remaiked that be had
little expected it hon invited to the banquet
that it Would be nn mi ,*li a splendid scile
and attended by such a number of firemen.
He was always glad to *�����; among Gremen
and believed there was a (sort of fieeinas.'ii-
ary among them that, exis'id no wheie else
and woUld always help one another in ease
of necessity. He gave Irs own experiences
in that respect, and an to his universal reception among the 'boys of I ho fire brigades
he had visited. He drew t.itention to tho
difference between present lire brigades aud
old brigades of our fathers' days, and gave
some humorous recollections of the old time
call to work the hand liru engines. The
6reman's life, though as hazardous as thai,of
a soldier, yet was not appreciated as soldiers'
were after having done their du'V well. He
thanked all present for his kind reception,
and complimented the brigade ou its tun:
out, and chief Scales and o'her officers for
its effeotivo organization, winding up with
an adjuration to the firemen to stick together im if they wuu ou uui It, nhich .hey
pi'aotiually were. Mr. Ogle's remarks
evoked hearty applause several times.
Mr. Raper responded to the toast of Captain J Crawford, the first, promoter of a fire
brigade iu Nauaimo, aud was referred lo
old days during which Mr. Crawford first
came forward and was mainly responsible
for the inception of Nanaimo's present system of fire protection.
Mr. J. H. Pleace then humorously referring to his authority as chairman, called on
Mr. Steve Wilkes for a song, which was
received with hearty applause.
Mr. T. Dixon next sang and was also rendered enthusiastic applause,
Mr. W. J. Gallagher of Tiik Tkleiskam,
ou request next responded io the toast of
the Provincial Government, and explained
that it was a dangerous matter to speak on
Solitics, but he believed that at the present
ay there were at the head of the government the very beat men in the country.
The speaker alluded briefly to the measures for the benefit of Nauaimo district that
were now in hand by the Government. A
aocial meeting was scarcely the place to
go deeply into politics. It was best to hear
both sides of the question; aa from him they
could only hear one aide, that presented by
the Colonist, The Telegram and other
papers. Thanking the assembly for the
honor and coupling his name with the toast,
the apeaker coroluded his remarks amid
applause
After song by Mr. B. Homo, the toast of
Mayor and Council was responded to by Mr.
Lawrence, foreman of the hook and Udder
truck, who hoped the brigade would have a
record similar to that of the hose team.
Messrs. Cheatwood and E Imuoda then
furnished songs, wt*ich being ended, the
next toast, ''The Chief and his Assistants," was drunk with full honors
It was reFp mded to by Mr. Cocking who
agreed with the seutimeuts expressed in the
sou?���they weie all jolly good fellows and
were a particularly well selected body of
men. They could be congratulated on theie
neve*" having been any discord among them.
The Mayor and Council had always, and he
belii-.ved always would, do all they could for
the firemen. In concluding ho acknowledged the kindness of the ladies' committee
in having got a hook and ladder truck for
the brigade.    (Applause.)
Mr. Ogle said that he had never yet in
his experience seen a town in which the
ladies had done so much for the brigade as
to get a hook and bidder truck through
their own exertions. H>* ongra'ttlated the
boys on being backed by such fair promoters
of their interests.    (Applause.) j
Messrs. Langham, Robertson, Savage and
Garrard here enlivened the proceedings with
choice v cal "elections.
The toast of the.ladies  Mas responded  to
by Mr.   Dixon,   who   then   tang   "Maggie
Murphy's Home" by  r'fquest.   Songs were
then given ou   request   by   Messrs.    Riley,
Winters,      Lewis,     Wilkes,    Chetwood,
Dixon, Lingley,'Jo es, Canard   and Riley.
Mr. Gallagher then in a  fevv  well-chosen
words asUeri   them  all   to fill   their glasses
and drink   to the   chairman,  coupled  vfil.lt
Mr. Cockint/, both of wl o:n he hoped would
. bd eleOied at the coming municipal e'ect.iou.
!     Mr. Pleace in reply said that since he had
I beeu a  fireman,   he   nad   advocated   their
interests,  and   would   always  dn ao, aud
knew   Mr.   Cocking   would   do   the   same
(applause).
Mr. Cocking then complimented Mr.
Plei.ce on his ability ns a chairman He
(Cooking) had as a member of ihe couucil]
always done his utmost for the firemen, and '
would do so hereafter whether elected or uot.;
He ivtfs sure thai, Mr. Pleaoe would lie elect- j
eil and know that when he was he would do !

Hawaiian Aft'airs in Washington.
Wasiiimiton, Jan. 9 ���Almost without
j exception Democrat*!* senators refuse to talk
for publication concerning the news of the
latest developments in Hawaii, ulth**ugh
some of [hem discuss the matter in private.
The news has caused them to express themselves privately, perhaps mon* freely thau
heretofore and all *.,',oir expressions are
based upon th'e supposition that, the
news ia authentic. Republicans naturally are freer to ciitieii'.e the policy
ot the Administration. Mr. Dolph,
(Republican, Oregon), Baid that it was unnecessary for him to say how he looked
upon the subject, for he wns already ou
record. Mr. Perkins, (Republican, California), said: "If I were President Dole, I
would give Mr Willis his 'papers and send
him home. During the previous administration * f M *. Cleveland, h" sent Sackvillei
West, hfine for writing a letter on
poll iuul ei'tinmy       to        a       piivaiu
ciux-m     and      1      believe       Mr.       Dole
Would have a Rood  precedent  for  his act if j
he were to give  Mr. XV Hi*   his papers, and *
ask him to   go   homi."    "If the  ne>��'a   b�� l
true," saitl Mr.   Peffer  (Populist,  Kans.e),
"it  is an   outrage.    Tf   tronpt   have   been1
landed, by  the  Amen ���un,   Kuglish   or any
other nation, they should bn tepolled."
The Seuate foreign telaiioiit. committee
to-day in contiouanue of lhe investigation of
Hawaiian relations, examined three naval
officers, Lieutenants Lucien, Young, K K.
Moore and paymaster Hobbs. They were
at Honolulu during the revolution in charge
of United Slates uaval forces and after describing the movements of the troops they
denied any knowledge of the conspiracy by
which these troops were to be used to Bub-
vert the monarchy.

Clean Off the Sidewalks.
One ��� f ' lie most notable tilings id Nanai
mo at tho uTetneut aeason of dangerously
slipper) sidenalke and (footings, i�� the in-
diff* reuce exhibited by ihe municipal
authorises to the necessity *f compellii g
householders to clean lhe snow from the
sidewalks in front of their ptemise*. Aaid.-
from the onmfort of pedestrians and the
easement of pjb.senger traffic on the business
thoroughfares, such a necessary work un.y
save the city an action for damages for injuries reoeived from slipping on a snow-
covered sidewalk. This indifference to public s-if* ty is exhibited in all cities of the
Province, aud pariicularly so in Nanaimo,
where the sidewalks in weather
like the present are io a disgracefully dirty, not to say diugerous
state; a condition of things that need
not exist, if, aB is presumed, the municipal
couucil possesses power to compel property
owuers and house-holders lo clean the sidewalks liefote their premises. Public safety
and convenience should always he the first
consideration of a oity council. This fact is
well appreciated by eastern municipalities,
who, warned by the records in Canadian
courts of law of heavy damages obtained
from municipalities by those injured through
slipping on sidewalks in such condition as
are now those of Nanaimo, have sense
enough ' o compel the dwellers within their
boundaries to clean their tide-walks and
keep them clean, under penalty of a fine, or
having the work done by the corporalion at

sake of public safety, aside from considerations ot convenience and good appearance,
the governing powets of Nanaimo should
take some measures to promptly remedy
this winter time evil, before some unfortunate is injured and claims compensation at
the expense of the city.
County Court.
Th**?ease of Arthur Emory, charged with
housebreaking, was heard yesterday before
Judge E. Harrison, under the Speedy Trials
Act J. H. Simpson prosecuted and F.
McB. Young appeared for the defence. The
information charging Emory with housebreaking was dismissed, on the ground that
the evidence would not support such a
charge. The case was then proceeded with
on the charge of attempting to steal money
and liquor, the property of R. Hindmarsh.
The evidence for the prosecution showed
that Emory wus seen by Hindmarsh in the
rear of his premises, endeavoring to scale
the fence separating them from Philpotts'.
Hindmarsh, on going into Philpotts' yard,
caught Emory climbing the fence, The
police were informed and Emory arrested.
On his person was found a large case knife
on which was found putty and white paint.
On examination of the premises it was found
that part of the glass had been removed
from oue of the windows and the sash cut.
The prisoner made a statement denying
that he either broke the window or cut the
sash, or that he waB on the premises. The
evidence being all in, the case was adjourned till today at 11 a.m. for argument.
The examination of defendant in the case
of Marshall and Philpotts will come up today; Yarwood and Young for the defendant,
Simpson aud Simpson for the plaintiff.
The examination in the case of Bickle
against Weeks will also be heard to-day,
Yarwood and Young appearing for Weeks,
and Simpson and Simpson for Bickle.

HUMOR IN THE SCHOOL-!!.
BY   JAMES L.  Hl'OHES,
Inspector of Public Schools for lhe City of Toronto.
Forty yeara ago st'-i*nM'*8*3 was the moral
force used by teai-li is in controlling their
pupils. To smile ��a* a grave offence; tu
laugh was a flognbl<* c. line. Iu school hs in
church, girls and buys had to be solemn, or
else be sorry they had not been solemn.
When ghosts, ogres and other monstrosities
had lost their terrors, then children were
threatened with the living embodiment of
all horrors; the schoolmaster.
But even the terrible schoolmasters could
only restrain nature and not destroy it.
Mirth sometimes asserted its divine right to
rule even in the gloomiest, schools. Boys
laughed, however, against orders. A smile
was a stolen luxury. Merriment was sinful.
80 far as the master's influence moulded
character, boys became sly and secretive,
and lost frankness when they smiled, because they were made conscious of the fac:
that by smiling they were breaking the law.
Still there were many boys and girls who
broke the law even though they kuew tin-
penalty was a whipping. Sometimes ihe
master was agreeable enough to ele* p in
achool. Those were golden moments. The
happiest imes we had in sohool were the
times ihn master was asleep or out of the
room. We enjoyed his reiiremeut better
than his resting periods, because when he
WaB asleep we had to confine ourselves tn
smiling lest we should wake him. While
be was out of tbe room tbe merriment was
uproarious. While he dozed we had to develop self-control, and this waB about the
only opportunity we had to develop self-
control from a positive motive.
One day a ten-year-old boy was smiling
unspeakable sentiments across the room to
a responsive, blue-eyed, yellow-haired lassie
while the master dreamed. Suddenly the
master's eyes opened, and when the little
fellow's heart was fullest and his smile
broadest, he was start led by the thundering
command: "Come here sir, and I'll learn
you how to laugh." The boy crept to his
desk as though he felt this to be a totally
unnecessary lesson, snd stood dreading its
commencement. "Which would you rather
be whipped with sir, the rod, the ruler or
the strap?" We were all amuzed at the
master's consideration. *��� At length the boy
made his ohoice in favor of the rod. "On,
you'd like the rod, would you? Then I'll
use the strap." He took the strap accordingly and proceeded to "learn the boy to
laugh." Judged by results, his lesson was
not a success. His method was evidently a
very bad one, but it was nearly as logical as
his method of leaching anything else.
So common were whippings in schools in
those days, boys were trained to regaid
school as a place of punishment, and whipping as one of the regular psrts of the programme. A little boy walked straight up
to his teacher the first morning he ever went
to Bchool, and after the preliminary questions had been asked regarding his name,
age and residence, he resolutely held out his
hand and s.��id: "Well, lick me and let me
go to my seat."
Sometimes the fun became hilarious when
the culprit declined to take hiB punishment
and preferred to run around the room instead. It was no uncommon thing for every
other boy and girl to stand up and sheer
the boy who was successfully dodging the
master. The excitement on such occasions
was intens', and if the muster, in hia undignified rush after his intended victim, fell
or hurt his leg against the corner of a desk,
a wild cheer from the entire school showed
that the hoy had the sympathy of his companions. On rare occasions���too rare���we
were treated to an unexpected entertainment, when a large boy rebelled against the
injustice of the teacher, and gave a whipping instead of receiving one. Such an event
enabled us to bear the evils of our condition with resignation. Humor would assert
itself even under the most unfavorable conditions. We would laugh when a boy cried
in a new key, or rubbed the injured part of
his body with unusual energy. Agony became so common that we laughed ut any of
its unusual characteristics. The schoolroom humor of early days wus grim in character and restricted in quantity. The boy
was excusable who called his poem on the
departed teacher, "The Loss of a Whaler."
Probably the best story of genuine humor
associated with the rod is that told of a boy
whose master, hearing a noise behind him,
turned suddenly and seizing the boy whom
lie suspected, proceeded to give him a severe
whipping. The more vigorous the blows
were administered the more heartily the boy
laughed. At length the irritated master
shouted, "What are you laughing at, sir?"
"I was laughing at the joke ou you; ha! ha!
hal you're whipping the wrong boy."
Fortunately for the boys, whipping is not
now regarded aa the only disciplinary agent
or as the best, except in peculiar cases. It
was hardening in its general effects on character. The attitude of the hnya toward the
master and his administration of punishment were fully and graphically expressed
by the reply of the little fellow who, when
hia teacher said, "Do you know why I'm
going to whip you, Bir?" replied, "Yea, I do.
It's because you're bit/ger'n I am."
The spiiit of the schoolroom has changed.
The wise teacher encourages pure fun, and
laughs heartily at every oc mrrence, or remark, or humorous story thai, comes properly to enliven the life of I he school. Children ai*" trained to stand up h-f**re the class
and tell good humorous stories, and thia exercise is infinitely more developing than the
old-fashioned means of cultivating the power
of oral expression.
It might naturally be supposed that, next
to the physical allliotiou periods, the most
unlikely time for humor to come into a
achool would be during the religious exer-
ciseB. The natural seriousness of these exercises ia sometimes disturbed, however.
"Who made you?" asked a primary
teacher. The littl" girl addressed evidently
wished to be aocurate in her reply: "God
made me so long,"���indicating the length of
a short baby���"and I growed the rest.
Tbe word altar occurred in the Soripture
selection. "What ia an altar?" said tbe
teacher.    "A   plaoe   to  burn insects," re-
Slied an honeat boy. "Who were the fool-
ih virgins?" brought the prompt answer
from a wise little girl, "Them aa didn't get
married." The Mormons were preaching
in an English village, and the teaoher properly directed the moral. teaching of hia
aohool to the prominent evil of tne time.
Aa a basis of hia remarks, he deoided to ask
a few preliminary queationa. "Uoya," aaid
he, "oan any of you quote a verse from the
Soripture to prove that it ia wrong for a
man to have two wives?" He paused, and
.after a moment a bright boy raised hia
hand. "Well, Thomas?" aaid the teaoher,
encouragingly. Thomas stood up and said
solemnly: "Noman can serve two masters."
ended   there.    A teacher
'Whom do you especially
��"   "(Jar.
The questioning
said to her class,
wish to see when you go lo heaven?0 "(jer-
liah," was probably the most candid answer
she received. Theie was no hypocrisy
in the boy who longed to see the great
giant who tud been ilefeSted by young David.
The religions teachings of home and school
seems to give a flavor to answers on very
different subjects���especially when religious
teaching ia mad- a matter of memorizing
words that uie uot understood. The gin
who aaid, "A republican ia a sinner mentioned in the Bible;" and the boy who wrote,
"There are a good many donkeys in the
theological gardens," had evidently received
a religious training. At an examination in
England the pupils were asked to explain
the difference between the religious beliefs
of the Jews and the Samaritans. One answer was: "The Jews believed iu the Synagogue and had their Sun ay on a Saturday,
but 1 he Samaritans believed in the Church
of England and worshipped in groves of
oaka; therefore the Jews had no dealings
with the Samaritans."
The words, "his Satanic Majesty" occurred in a story read in one of the Toronto
public schools. "How many know who his
Satanic Majesty is?" said the teacher. Several hands were raised aud the tiist pupil
named promptly replied, "The Inspector."
It is encouraging to know that she was a
very young child. Histiry and Scripture
were never more thoroughly mixed thau by
the boy who wrote, "Titus was a Roman
emperor���supposed to have written tbe
epistle to the Hebrews���his other name was
Oatea."
The ridiculous answers given at written
examinations would fill many volumes.
Sometimes they are the result of impmper
questioning, sometimes of mental piculiar-
lties in pupils, often iu poor teaching, which
is satisfie I with giving words, instead of
ideas, to children.
The ecliptic had beeu taught as "an imaginary line representing tbe apparent path
of the aun through the heavens," but, at the
examination it was defined us "on imaginary line going round the equator; it seems
to be the path, which the earth goes round,
but it ia really the path to heaven." A student preparing to be a teacher wrote: "The
aim of geography ia to fit a man for the
business of life and lead him to prepare for
death and the other world." Another be
liever in the uplifting power of geography
wrote: "A person ignorant of geography
is wrapped up in hit own narrow sphere of
ignorance and is generally a bore." An
English girl wrote: "Oliver Cromwell was
a man who was put in prison for his interference in Ireland. When he was in prison
he wrote 'The Pilgrim's Hrogreaa' and married a lady called Mrs. O'Shea." A Canadian historian informed the examiners that
"The Whig party waa an army that tried
to skirmish every town." Another pupil
answered, "The Whig party is the Conservatives," aud still another said, "The Whig
party are the oues that wish for progress,
and they don't in general dress so gay as
the Tories." It must have been a very radical aon of a. Radical who wrote, "Perkin
Warbeck raised a rebellion iu the reign o'
Henry VIII. He claimed to be the son of
a prince, but he was really the aon of respectable people." A young churchman
wrote. "A Prime Miniater ia one who atops
at thu same church all the time." Free
trade is a question that always developes
original theories in the mind of youthful
economists. Here aie a few apecimena:
"Free trade is carried on without any monev
to pay for it." "Free trade ia the trade
for fishing along the shore^or selling whatever they like, or can do what they think
beat." "Free trade is, tbat a man buys a
piece of land, and pays for it, and receives
a deed for it, and is subject to nothing but
the taxes of the country."
When hygiene was taught in the form of
notes dictated by the teacher, to be repeated
orally by the pupils or be written down to
be committed to memory, the anawera given
in thia aubject were often very amusing on
account of their incongruit ies. Reading a
few of th-m muat convince even skeptics
that we are "fearfully and wonderfully
made." "We oall the kidneys the bread
basket, because it is where all tbe bread
goes to. They lay up concealed by the
heart." "The food passes through your
windpipe to the pores, and thus p issea off
your body by evaporation through a lot of
little holes in the skin called capillaries."
"We should die if we eat our food roar.''
"The food ia nourished in the stomach."
"We should not eat so much hone-making
foods as flesh-making and warmth-giving
foods, for if we did we would have too
many hones, which would make us look
tunny." "Sugar is an amyloid; if you was
to eat much sugar and nothing else, you
would not live, Because sugar h is not got
no carbon, hydrogen, oxygen, nitrogen. Potatoes is another amyloid." The poor boy
who wrote that will not live long if he
crams hia atomaoh aa badly as his teacher
crammed his brain.
A young temperance advocate wrote.
"Alcoholic beverages greatly obstruct the
breaking down of the body," and succeeded
in saying exactly the opposite of what he
meant. A constructive anatomist volunteered the sentence "The eyes are set in
two sockets in a bone which turns up at
the end snd then becomes the nose." One
of the large class that ventures to give general remarks at an examination as a substitute for accurate knowledge wisely wrote
the philosophical statement: "The apine is
quile an important bone." Another gave
the equally profound answer: "When you
have a illness it makes your health bad, as
well as having a dis uso." The girl who
wrote the following had doubtless associated with very selfish, grasping people.
"The body is compose*! chiefly of Wutor and
near y one half of it is avaricious : issue."
A few answers relating to oth. r subjects
will close my "examination department."
"Prose tells things that are true right along
just as they nre, and poetry makes it up as
you go along." "A oitcie is a round straight
line with a hole in the middle." "Things
which are tqual to eaoh other are equal to
anything else." "The chief products of the
United States is earthquakes and vole-
noes." "The rapids of the St. Lorence is
caused by the canoea of the Indians." "In
Austria the principal occupation is gathering Austrich feathers." "Tho two most
famous volcanoes in Europe are Sodom and
Gomorrah." "Climate lasts all the time,
and weather only a few days." "John Bun-
yan lived a life of scantity." "John Locke's
works are full of energy and lack no little
want of thought." "Julias Cttsar was quite
a military man on the whole." "By the
Salic law no woman or descendant ol a woman could occupy the throne." "Columbus
knew the earth was round because he bal
auced an egg on the fable." "Alfred the
Groat reigned 872 years. He was distinguished for letting some buckwheat cakes
burn, and the lady scolded bim."

What is the cause of all this noise at)d bustle around our Bargain Counter ? We ha e had, and other people have
had, Bargain Counters before, but r ot on th* same scale. What constitutes a Successful Bargain Counter, anyhow?
Just simply this���make every a'tide on it so Low in Price that it will cause an exclamation of Wonder and Surprise in
every instance where the price is given.   31 is no trouble then to make sales.
See the Costumes we are selling at Half Price. There's not an objectionable one among them. We have already
sold eight or ten and expect to clear every one of them out this month.
We believe in keeping cur stock clear, so as to be able every Season, as it comes round, to give our customers nice
clean goods in all the latest novelt ies the market produces To be able to do this we have, of course, to slaughter some
stuff at Ridiculous Prices.
We almost forgot to mention that we intend clearing out our balance of Ladies' and Children's Waterproofs, at
prices that are certain to sell them.   The "Bretagne" Lacing Gloves take the lead.

Knowing your earnest and well directed
efforts to advance our City's iulereBts during the past, we again call ou you lo take
the direction of our City's affairs. Having
full confidence iu you, we will use our best
endeavors to elect you for the ensuing term.
Homing that you will accede to our request,, we remain, respectfully yours,

consideration, and consulting a number ot

for me to do justice to the City, as it requires a great deal of time, as well as money,
which I cannot spare at present without
neglecting my own business, which will require my whole attention during the present year. I hope, however, at some
future time to again be in a position to devote myself to public matters.

Yours respectfully,
