Current Events and Opinions.
Dispatches from England convey
tho assurance that a movement of
British men-of-war toward Halifax
is neither significant nor important.
The Belleroplion is said to be there
in   accordance   with   the   regular
course of orders issued long ago.
Among other vessels soon to reach
there are the Dido, Garnet, Emerald
and   Lily.    What the others are
which these tire among is not stated.
The Mallard hns been ordered to
St. Johns, New   Brunswick.     Of
these ships ull are unarmored cor-
vottes except the Bellerophon, which
is an ironclad cruiser of 7,550 tons,
having G-inch armor, carrying ten
12 ton and five 6-J-ton guns.    Not a
first-class ship, but capable of knocking into kindling-wood our North
Atlantic Squadron, with a little assistance from her light consorts.   Of
course we accept tbe assurance that
the presence of  the fleet in close
proximity to the sceno of our fishery
troubles is in accordance witli routine  and  has no bearing upon that
question, still we may be permitted
to express surprise at the coincide tice.    Our collating coal schooners
have lately been very successful iu
ramming and sinking United States
dispatch   bouts, and Cunurd  liners,
but we fear the result of a contest
between one of them imd a British
ironclad in case any unpleasant ness
should grow out of the fishing business.    But it may be assumed with
certainty that thp mutual interests
of the two nations are too great to
permit a collision to arise from such
a comparatively .small matter as the
Canadian fisheries.   The boating of
the tom-tom, however, on both sides
is quite frequent.*—S, F. Bulletin,
Escaped Death to Die.
From tlie Blaine Journal we learn
the following particulars of an attempt
on tho part of sume one to poison John
McS weeny, who has since been murdered by Wm. Pollard: "Somo cowardly would-be uasasiu a few weeks ago
poisoned a can of soda for John Mo-
Sweeney, a Point Roberta fisherman,
and caniB near succeeding in hii mur-
dproiu tit-signs. It .seems that ttoroo
time ajfo McStveeney had some trouble
with hia partner, a man by the name
of McMullen, and' the latter loft disposing of hia interest in the fishing
tackle to John Gun. Shortly afterwards McSwecney made a loaf of
bread, which, because of ihi bitter taste
lis gavo to liia dog. Tlia animal soon
died in.convulsions,- Ne further attention was paid to 'the matter, however, until last Thursday when Mc-
Sweeney madu another loaf of bread,
using soda from this can, It was also
bitter. In taating from different parts
of the'loaf McSweeney swallowed
enough of the poison to cause spasms
like those of tlie dog. This awakened
suspicion of the truth, and after drinking freely uf dog-fish' oil, be Started
with attendants for Semiahmoo. The
bay was it little rough, and soon the
motion nf the boat, together with the
oil, caused the expulsion of the poison
from tlie stomach, undoubtedly saving
the niiui's life. Dr. Dement waa summoned oh McSweeney's arrival at
Sum j,-lum ui, and -pronounced it a caso
of strychnine poisoning, but the danger' waa over when ho aaw the man,
and by the. next day.McSweeney was
nearly as well na ever.

New. Westminster, R C. apffltc
The government is to be commended for so promptly taking action to protect our saw-milling industry. A mouth ago we commented on tho design of certain
Michigan    lumbermen    who    had
bOUght    lllrgo    trucks    of   t-tandiiig
white-pine in the Georgian Bay district, to carry thoir logs over Lako
Huron, and saw them in Michigan.
This they could do to advantage,
because, while the United States
import duty on sawn lumber wns
(2 per M,t the Canadian export
duty on logs wns only §1 per M.,
and the consequence of tho diligence was that, as these gentlemen
boasted, while the Canadinn saw
mills were in ruins, the American
mills were employing thousands of
workmen. The attention of tho
Canadian public was, however, called
to this state of things by Mr. William Little, of Montreal, who, in a
letter to the Gazette of that oity,
reproduced from tho Bay City Lumberman's Gazette tho statement of
one of the lumbermen—(who alono
had bought 2,000,000 feet of pine
lumber, with a saw-mill, iu the
Georgian Buy district) — that ho
proposed carrying the logs over
Lake Huron and sawing them in
Michigan. And this matter having
been urged on the attention of the
government also, a prompt, nnd we
hope an effectual, remedy was applied on Thursday last by un amendment to thc tar ill", raising the export
duty on pine logs to $3 per M., ov
spruce logs to $2, and on sliinglo-
bolts to $1.50. This, though not
quite as high a rate us that recommended by Mr. Little, may yet
answer the purpose; for it turns thn
scale, and gives lumber sawn iu
Canada a protection of tho full
amount of the export duty. For
that, we believe, will be tho real
effect; the duty boing uow for the
first time oporntivo, is wholly so.
When the Canadian export duty on
logs was lower than the United
States import duty on lumber, the
difference in favor of importing logs
in preference to lumber into the
States was sufficient to ensure the
importation of logs instead of lumber; but now that the scale is
turned, the advantage will lie in
importing lumber instead of logs,
unless—which however, is not at
all likely, the Americans, instead
of taking off the present duty on
lumber, ns is proposed by the tariff
bill before congress, should raise it
to $3 or over, in which caso the
Male would be oven, or atrnin turned
against Canada, Uut iu suoh a
war of tariffs both parties mny engage; and at any rato, in case Canada Bhould not succeed in promoting
the interests of her saw-milling industry, sho will derivo n very considerable revenue from the now
increased duties.—The Week.

Most will swing the blacksmith's hammer at Black well'a Island for one year,
TIjoii hn will pay a fine, or swing the
lythimor COO days more. , When Most
reaohed Black well's Island he was
taken tu tho bathroom. Whon he had

ment loft him when ho was put into
thu hands of the barber; but ho appeared more frightened thau ever
when hia repulsive blonde beard waa
removed by a few deft clips, and the
hideous deformity of his faco was revealed. The left side of Most's lower
jaw Jb entirely caved in, and the most
of his chin iB gone. He says a mule
kicked him. .Standing in hia" convict's
garb, shivering with fright, a hopeless,
forlorn look on his face, with his eyes
wandering, unable to bear the gaze uf
the bystanders, his upper lip falling
down over his lower one, the bomb
dynamiter aoemed completely broken
down and cowed. The Times uyi editorially: "If erer a man earned death
on, the gallows Most has earned it."
•    ' ' ' "■■—
Isothermal Lines.
Isothermal lines aro lines laid down
ou the map to connect places of the
■amo mean temperature. Baron von
Humboldt wns the first to put theso
systems of linos on maps in 1817* If
the surface of the earth wero uniform,
if there woro no great inequalities of
land and water upon it to modify the
temperature, it Is plain that the isothermal lines would a«reo exactly with
tho parallels nf latitude. But since
there aru su many causes that affect
climato in the formation of the earth's
aurfaco, theso linos do not at all correspond tn those of latitude. Id the
isothermal lines, as given on the map,
tli.t local influences nf elevation of
land aru olitniuatud nnd the temperatures reduced tp what they would bu
were nil places at tho level of the sea.
Thuao liue-i aru namud according to the
mean tuinpuraturu which (huy indicate,
according to thu Fahrouhuit thermometer, ai tho line of 50 degrees, the
line of 00 degrees, utc. The isothermal line of northern Minno-sota is 40
degrees. Thu im thermal lines are not
parallel with each other but show
gruat deviations uf curve that seem to
indicate two northern and two southern poles, ur centers, of greatest oold.
Thuae curvatures are greatest in the
extra-tropical parts uf tho northern
hemisphere, The northern Centura of
cold nru Hituat-.nl in tho arctic regions,
ouo tu thu north of Siberia, nearly in
the meridian of Vakutik, and the
other to the north uf America, nearly
in thu muridian uf the wus turn part of
Hudson's B-iy. The Isothermal lines,
guttural ly in tbo northern hemisphere,
descend tu a lower latitude in the eastern part of the two grent continents,
wbilu mhi- to a comparatively high
latitude ou iho Western coast of both.
Thu lino of 50 degrees Fahrenheit,
for Instance, which passes through tho
north of England, doscends bulow the
latitude of Now York, on tho east
const of America. Tho great differ*
onco in mean temperature between
western Europe and thu eastern part
of North America, Is tu be ascribed
mainly to tho tempering influence of
the warm waters uf tlie Gulf Stream
upon the coasts of the former country, and to tho southwesterly trade
winds which blow on it for nearly two-
thirds of the year.

Saturday Morning, Jan" '»■ ""■
It seems that the effort of the
oppoeition party in Viotoria to capture the vote of the workingmen
has failed. By some means not
made publio a sort of understanding was brought about that if the
workingmen would support tho two
opposition candidates, the opposition
would support any two candidates
nominated by the workingmen. In
accordance with this arrangement
each of these organizations nominated two candidates for the city,
and everything looked lovely. But
it turned out that the opposition
required the workingnien's candidates to pledge themselves to oppose tlwgovernmeivt unconditionally.
This the workingmen refused to
atand, and proceeded to nominate
two more candidates of their own!
should, under ordinary circumstances, let his vote be an endorsement
or condemnation qf thc ^government of/:the dayy? It wi|\ beun
order, therefore, to'' consider, at .the
present time whether the govein-
ment of Britisli Columbia has discharged tho duties entrusted to it
in such a way as to entitle it to
public confidence. If it has, then
it would clearly be an act of ingratitude and positively unfair to
support a candidate pledged to. oppose the government. ■ J"iet tho doctors bring to the consideration of
this matter a spirit of perfect candor, nnd let thein lay aside prejudice, and compare the actions of
tlie present government with those
of the governmont that preceded it,
tint members of whioh now soek to
be restored to ollice. Let thein also
compare tlie men who are leaders,
of the two political parlies ami de-
terminc wliich of the two sets ought
to be. trusted with the management
of public affairs. While this journal has endeavored to occupy a position of independence in political
ftt*airs, it hus not surrendered its

that onght to be decided by a prac;
tical test, us it is of very great public interest. Jf walnut can be:sue-
eessfWly growii, it would prove to
be a source of immense wealth to
the country. On this coast growth
is very roueli more rapid than in
the east, because the growing seasons are so much longer. The supply, of black ..walnut is every year
becoming less, ahd it will soon be
wholly exhausted unless steps are
taken to increase it by artificial
means. It is estimated that in 10
or 1*2 years a walnut farm would
begin to make returns in the shape
of nuts, and ih, 25 yeats the timber
would be worth a great deal. The
rich flats in the valley of the Fraser
onght to produce magnificent walnut trees.

No previous administration 1ms ever
done ns much for the mainland. . In
another issue we shall give some
reasons why we tlfiflJt-the electors
ought 'Cb see thnt1 ine present gov
ernmeut is sustained in its appeal
to the people.
Another False Alarm.
We are informed that the Canadian government has decided to
present a Jree |iomestead to every
persoj| wh3 -wai settle and mnke
certain imjpov|^n»nts on the lands
handed over to the Dominion by
thii province undor the. settlement
act. This information will be gladly
to be capable of producing quite as
abundantly as the lands in the
Canadian north - west, bi\t tliese
lands Ue so remote from the settled
portion ol SHKsh Columbia that it
would be most difficult to'administer them from the provincial capital The giving .up of.- these lands
ia one of the things for which the
pntent government is blamed by
the straight' opposition press and
politicians, but, even if the transaction Of itself had been objectionable, the result will be beyond
question of great advantage to tlie
country. A person listening to.the
opposition campaign music would
suppose it to be Che intention of the
Dominion government to take these
lands ahd carry them, out of the
country. But there is every reason
to expect that they will be administered with even more vigor and
success than if they had remained
the property of the province, and
there will be no loss of revenue to
British Columbia. We have not
yet heard an* opposition cry in
which there was reason, and even
those that have been used aro
crumbling away one by one. The
Peace Kiver "give-away" can,.no
longer be used as a cry by atay per
son who values his reputation.
From Lnln Island.
(C'orrespQiHtonee of the Columbinn.)
Although there has never been a
"boom" at Lulu, and perhaps nover
will be, this place isauroly moving forward. Land is being constantly reclaimed, and proves rich whenever
brought undor cultivation. Where not
long ago nothing but reeds and wild
nature could be seen, thero nre now
beautiful farms; blooining with thc
fruits of husbandry. A few days ni-o
Air. Steves arrived with three thoroughbred' Holatein cattlo from Now York
jitate, and two Berkshire pigs from
Oregdn. ' The cattle have registered
pedigrees, and come from stock possessing the greatest number of points
necessary for all purpose*, having both
milk and beef qualities.
From Maple Hldge.
A grand entertainment in aid of tho
public school was held hero on Tuesday evening. As this was tho first for
that object the success attending it
exceeded the moat sanguine expectations of ita promoters. The school
house was crowded, over 120 being
present. The interest of all was kept
up to thc last. Tho music, judging
from the eclat with which it wns received, reflects credit on all who took
part, but especially on Mr. J. D.
Working of Port Haney, who took n
most lively interest in tbo concert
throughout. Headings and recitations
were interspersed and had a pleasing
effect. The stage, was tastefully decorated and presented a very neat appearance. After a programme of 25 selections had beon exhausted, a vote of
thanks to the. promoters -of the concert was moved by Mr. John McKbii*
ney, sec, of the board of trustees,
seconded by Mr. Ferguson, and carried
unanimously. The; national anthem
waa then sung and all repaired to
their several homes after having spent
a very pleasant evening.
The Doty of the Hour.
It will be the duty of the people
of British Columbia at tbis time to
consider well whether it is in the
interest of the country that tlie
present government be sustained or
defeated. There is a disposition
manifested sometimes to ignore
completely the claims of govemment
und vote for men on their merits
without stopping to ascertain tbe
nature of tlieir political platform
or whether they have any platform
nt all. In some circumstances this

until next Thursday nfternoon.
Tho Vancouver News was the tint of
tho papers to appear since thc tiro. It
came out on Wednesday on the half-

The proprietors, Messrs. Harknoss &
Ross, deserve credit for thoir enterprise, The News is issued every day.
The Vancouver News of yesterday

The concert next Tuesday night is
to bo given by the ladies of the Choral

some timu e_o organized a ladies' class

(his concert is one of the results of

At the mooting held on Wednesday
night it was decided not to cancel thu
Dominion Day snorts. Several persons who had subscribed towards the
celebration strongly objected to nny
interference in the nrrnngements, and
expressed thomaolves willing to subscribe equal amounts to the Ynticouver
relief fund,
TnE First Train.—On the 26th or
28tliinst.( tho tirst regular passenger
train is expected to leave Montreal for
Port Moody.
More Candidate. — Mr. Henry
Dawson announces that he is a candidate for the district at the coming election for the provinoial legislature.
Statutes.—We havo received from
the government printing office a copy
of the statutes passed during the last
session of the provinoial parliament.
The volume is well printed and bound,
us indeed, the statutes of British Columbia invariably are.
Thanks. — At a meeting of the
Knights of Labor of Vancouver held
a few days ago the following resolution waB passed: "That the secretary
be requested to tender our brothers of
Assembly N. 5507, New Westminster,
tho sincoro thanks of this assembly
for the vory prompt manner in which
they came forward to our assistance,
and that we recognize in their conduct the true principles of knighthood. Be it further resolved that
this resolution bo published in the
New Westminster papers,"
New Buildings,—We understand
that quite a number of those who purchased lots at the last city sale intend
to begin building at once. Messrs.
Turpin and Stride, of Victoria, who
bought some property on Agnes st.,
opposite the new Baptist church, will
erect four houses thereon. Mr. H. L.
DoBeck will build on his lot, and Mr.
Cowper will probably do the samo.
The Masons, who purchased a lot on
Mary st,, contemplate the erection of
a fine Masonic Hall. It is also reported that Mr. A. M. Herring, who has
just completed four excellent houses
on Mary st., will build on his latest
purchase.
The Hot Springs.—On Wednesday
the Btr. Reliance went up to Harrison
Lake with a barge containing 80,000
feet of lumber for, the Hot Springs Co,
of tlmt place, Tho company (of whioh
our enterprising citizen, Mr. J, C.
Armstrong, is a member) expects to
have tho new hotel completed and
ready for guests in about 5 weeks. The
hotel will contain 00 bod-rooms, and
will be provided with splendid accommodation, the baths being ample and
elegantly fitted up. There have been
several persons at the springs this season already, and some of them are said
to hnvo received great benefit from the
water.
Oan it he Possible ?—It jb stated
that tenders • have been asked to carry
the mails between Ladnora and this
city and between Lulu aud Ladders in
a boat ur canoo or on horseback three
times a week! Tho only object of
suoh a service would be tn send the
through mails by way of Vancouver
and do away with the subsidized
stenmors on the lower Fraser, Ib it
possible that the Dominion government
contemplates such an outrage! We
referred tu the possibility uf this some
timo ago, nnd advised energetic aotion
on the part of tho city, but the advice was not tuken. Perhaps the people  will begin to move when it is too
Corns cause intolerable pain. Hollo-
way's Corn Cure removes the trouble.
Try it and see what an amount of pain is
saved.

Not True.—A paragraph appeared
in the last issue of tho Guardian reflecting most unjustly upon Dr. Bentley and the management of the Royal
Columbian Hospital. Dr. Bentley was
at Vancouver wheu the fire occurred,
and as there was no other physician
tliere to attend the burnt people he
roiltitiued in (he interests of humanity
aud did what he could for the sufferers.
Thero were nbout half a dozen dootors
in this city from among whom surely
one could nave been had to attend the
new nationt» brought to the hospital
from Vnncouver. The reflection on
tho management of the hospital is entirety contrary to tho facts, and wholly
unj ust i liable.
Vancouver Relief.- Mr. Laidlaw's
subscription lilt in this city has reached
over $700, and we believe the mayor
has received $150 in voluntary contributions. Besides that the city and
tho K. of L. have contributed about
$700 in supplies, -fcc. Victoria sent
3500 in cash and more than that in
supplies. Ladner's Landing hai raised
$150. The Hastings Mill Co. gave
$2G0, the C. P. R. $3,000, Mr. Abbott $500, D. Oppenheimer $100, the
city of Toronto $1,000, oity of Hamilton $500, tho govornment of British
Columbia $1,000, besides a lnrge number of other contributions. The 0.
P. N. Co. has been very generous in
its dealings with Vancouver.
- —-       m     —....
PoLtcx Raid.—Shortly before the
fire, the polico of Vancouver made a
raid on that part of tho city known as
Chinese terrace, and arrested 5 Chinese
women of bad reputation, and une
man, nnd carried them off, to the lockup. Commenting upon this raid the
News said: "This move to clear1 out
these dons is a praiseworthy one, Hnd
it is to be hopod it may result in the
total suppression of Chinese resorts in
this city." To this we heartily subscribe with the remark that we hope
the police nf Now Westminster may be
stirred up to action in the ssme direction. Iu this city prostitution never
seems to bo molested by the authorities, nnd it flourishes nnd spreads to
our eternal disgrace.
Election Announcements.—One of
the gentlemen running for this district
writes to this paper giving the reasons
which induced him to become a candidate, and urging his claims. Such a
letter, under the circumstances, can
only be received as an advertisement.
The columns of this paper are always
open for the discussion of publio questions, but candidates wishing to promote their own candidature by means
of addresses or letters cannot expect to
make use of the columns of a newspaper without cost. If any letter
should appear in this paper reflecting
upon a candidate, that candidate will
have the privilege of replying in the
usual way of correspondence. All letters relating to candidates during the
campaign must have the name uf the
writer attached for publication.
More Extradition Wanted. — A
young fellow by the name of Harry
Longfellow, who recently committed
some burglaries in Skagit county, has
boen loafing around Dan Barlow s just
across the British line for the past
few days. It appears that after ransacking a house on the Skagit he borrowed a boat of Mr. Gillis, of Cottonwood Island, in which to transport
the booty to British soil. Mr. Gillis
nut approving this plan of loaning
boati started in pursuit of the fugitive
for the purpose of having a better un*
derstanding in the matter, overhauling his man at Nesselroad's old logging
camp. There the borrower, leveling a
rifle on the borrowee -with a reserve
force in sight of another rifle, a shot
gun and a revolver—negotiated en
tirely to his owu satisfaction for the
further loan of the boat, agreeing to
leave it ut a certain point when done
with it. He did so, and the boat was

Police Court—On Wednesday a
man oame up charged with exposing
his person. After undergoing a medical examination he was pronounced insane and taken tu the asylum. Nelson Coon, arrested on information from
the police uf Vancouver, was charged
with theft. It was made clear to the
court that a mistake had been committed, and the man was discharged. The
man wanted by the Vancouver police
was subsequently discovered at the Indian rancherie at the Inlet. Mr. Cochrane for the prisoner. On Thursday a
d. and d. was fined $2.50 and costs.
Joe, an Indian, was charged by his
step-father, James Houston, of Langley, with stealing 130 sheep, The Indian claimed that the sheep were his,
having been purchased by his mother,
whom Houston married. It was shown
in evidence that Joe had been in the
habit of selling sheep from time to
time with the knowledge of his stepfather, and on this ground a claim of
right was set up. The case was dismissed on the ground of want of jurisdiction. Mr. Richards for the prosecution; Mr. Bole for dft, YeBterday
there were 6 men brought up for d.
and d., and fined each $1.60 and costs
or 48 hi uw. Their names were J.
Grmiin,-C. Parker, Mike Richardson,
C. Lang, C. Raymond, and Jas. Tobin.
Kitty, an Indian woman, paid $3.50
for a spree, and Jno. Donnelly paid
$61 for having supplied lhpior to Indians.

The Campaign.—There wns a large
attendance at tho provincial secretary's
mooting held at Surrey Town Hall on
Thursday. Before addressing the electors the provincial secretary held a
conference wiih those present with a
view to arranging fur the allotment of
the district appropriation iu such a
way as wuuld bust meet the requirements of tho settlements in Surrey.
This wns done, apparently, to the satisfaction of nearly all present. The
provincial secretary then addressed the
meeting on the polioy and conduct of
the government. He was followed by
Mr, Jas, Orr, who made a regular opposition speech, retailing the cry of
"give-away" so much indulged in by
that party. The provinoial secretary
mado a brief reply, disposing completely of Mr. Oir s statements. He
said ho was very glad Mr. On-had
openly declared himsolf on the opposition, beoause he could nuw be plaoed
where he belonged. Dr. Kent spoke
briefly, but as it was getting late the
audience soon dispersed.

Notwithstanding the completeness of
devastation at Vancouver on Sunday,
great activity is already roported in
building operations. A large number
of buildings are in course of ereotion;
one hotel three stories high is to receive ita roof to-day. The tint outside
rolief to arrive was the supplies sent
by the mayor of this city (nut by the
K.ofL. as reported bythe Herald),
These supplies were sent iu wagons,
in charge of Mr J. J. Owens,
who personally saw to their distribution. On Monday Mr. Owens says he
fed fully 1000 people. Mr. H. Abbott, O.E., besides subscribing $500,
announced thut every one who wished
could get wurk at $2.25 to $2.60 per
day, with wages paid daily, A great
many availed themselves of this offer,
and are now earning steady wages. It
is reported that all families are now
sheltered, and most of the meu,
Sprntt's cannery was thrown open, and
is crowded with men. Somo of the
hotels and stables beyond the burnt
region also kept open to all who wished shelter. It is said the resources
are at present equal to the necessities
of the place, but funds will be wanted
for some weeks to come, as there are
families destitute of any source of income. Tho Herald of yesterday gives

The District Election.
Editor Columbian.-vis Mr. *W. H,
Ladner lias announced tliat he will be a
candidate at thc approaching election
for tills district, allow me to .place before
your readers a few reasons-wliy he should
be rejected by the electors:
). His own evidence, givon in court,
in a trial for perjury, showed that he did
not recognise the difference between administering a solemn declaration and
merely witnessing a person's signature.
So much for his intelligence ana fitness
for liis position of a justice of the peace,
'J. As reeve of Delta he has been
guilty of removing a ratepayer's name
from the assessment roll, iii direct violation of the law, and for the purpose of
scouring his friend's election.     * *
3, Ke has, in direct violation uf hiB
duties as reeve, allowed (if not connived
at) the placing of names of persona on
tlie voters' list of the municipality who
were not .entitled to vote, and most
notably in the ward for which his brother
is councillor.
4. Ke hus, as reeve of Delta, favored
the illegal granting of large sums of
municipal money to assist Ins friends in
their private enterprises.
I think, Mr. Editor, that these facta
ought to be sufficient to show any thinking man that Mi*. Ladner is not a tit or
proper person to represent this district
in the provincial legislature.

New York, Juno 10.—A Herald cable
special from Avignon, Franee, ofthe Uth
says: A mule bitten a few weeks ago bv
a mad dog wus seized tbis morning with
rabies and caused m panic in this city.
Thc infuriated beast broke loose from its
stable, attacked its owner biting him on
tho head, and seizing his hand in its
teeth, dragged the man two hundred
yards, until the hand was nearly severed
from tho arm. Tho mule then charged
through the streets, attacking every per
son and every object it met. Tne Inhabitants took flight and fer half an hour
the brute remained the complete master
of Avignon. Five peasants were bitten
on the legs nnd baok, and one had bis
foot nearly bitten off. The gen d'armes
finally kilted the animal. The wounded
will bo sont to Pasteur,

to Goat island at Niagara falls. When
half way across he removed his hat and,
with a short run, sprang over the railing
and disappeared in the tumbling waters
below, To several hackmen, who a few
minutes before solicited his patronage,
the man replied that he was tired and
had conic a long distance by rail, He
also mnde tommies about tlie depth of
thc water at tlie bridge, the swiftness of
tho current, whether a man who jumped
into Die river from tho bridge could be
saved, etc. Being apparently satisfied
on this score, lie walked oat, jumped
over nud was swept over the falls. From
a card found in the discarded hat it is
supposed the man was Hiram B. Wads-

JiiMc Pharmi*lrt,K,W„B,C*, Slaves to Cocaine.
ELMjni.N. Y„ May,24.—Tho attention of thc polico waa this morning
called by the proprietor of tho Dela-
van Houae to a man antl woman occupying rooms in that hotel who wero
carrying on like a pair of maniacs.
Xhey had turn the beda to pieces, and
■ scattered the movable articles nbout
1 pimmiiouooriy.     The  oflicers found
rather a fine looking man and his
daughter, both of whom showed plainly
that they were under the inlluence of
some drugs. Physicians were called
and it was soon established that the
pair were Dr. A. S. Hnzen and daugh
.ter of SharuavUle,- Penn., aiid that
they were addicted to tho habit uf
bypoderraically injecting cocaino. They
were removed to the city hospital nnd
the supply of tho drug was taken from
them. The miu became almost frantic,
while tho woman foil asleep. After
trying for some time to rouse her, the
doctors only succeeded in doing so by
giving her, us her father directed,
large doses of cocaine injected hypo*
dermically. She then rallied and ate
heartily, and fifteen minutes after
Hnzen had been grunted his customary
dose he was apparently, himself again.
He is a well-educated mnn and has
been practicing medicine nt Evuub-
ville, Ind. He acquired tho habit
through experimenting on himself nnd
has taken as much as forty grnins a
day. He is on his way to Sharp-mile,
his home, whero, he says, he will put
himself under treatment and break
the habit.       $ ffiM    .     ^QJ
Vicissitudes ol* un Old House.
Sam Jones recently raised §7,500
here fur the Holcombe mission, established and managed by a reformed
gatnbler whose* name it bears, and tonight the tniwion moved into what was
a grand old place in slavery days,
which was purchased with the money.
The residence was built in 1842 for
Ben Smith, a Mississippi planter. The
walls are of brown stone, the doors of
ash. On the lower floor are fifteen
doors of solid mahogany, two and a
half and three inches thick. Tho front
_, windows are, tilled with imported
Frenoh plate' glass of double strength
Snd dear as distilled water, and tho
same luxury Was shown in nil the finish
Within and without. The .wholo was
Vor Smith's daughter, Misa Fanny, who
had recently mado her debut and was
the reigning belle in Louisville. Here
the family spent the summer with their
wealthy southern friends. Miss Smith
here married Alexander Bullitt, editor
of the New Orleans Picaijnne, about
the beginning of tho war.' The plnco
has since fallen into decay and gained
the reputation of a haunted house,
probably from glimpses by late passers
of statuary that for several years with
* the rich furniture remained in the
1 houn.    She spent 8100,000 <cn the;
■ plaoe.   It cost the mission 912,000.—

Ambassadors for (jurist.
Supposo that in Nowgntu jail, in
London, thero is a prisoner condemned
to death; ho is to bo executed in a
week. Suppose 1 were near llic Queen
nnd she were to say: "Would you liko
to tnko a message to that man, a free
pardon r "Yes, 1 would liko it-very
much." '• Woll, but he is a very ubsti-
•rikte- hmn, and if you go-yoir'nTirtt'-yn
in my nnme, nud beg und beseech him-
to accept the pardon." So I agree tn
this, and f got the pnrdMi signed and
sealed up nil right. I take the train'
tu London, and get into a coach to
drive tn the prison. On the way i
stop lit- a florist's and buy the iincst
bouquet of flowers I can get; then I
go to nnother shop and say: "Have
you nny nice new songs, nice cheerful
ones?"
"Yes, we have smut) vory nicotines.1'
Well, 1 buy hnlf a dozen, and so
with the beuuliful flowers in one hand
and the songs in the other, I go to the
prison gale. 1 knock; ttio turnkey
says: "Whnt do you want?" I show
him iiio Qaeen's order for admittance*,
and ho lots ine iu, and takes me to
the condemned criminulYcuIl, hu opens
the door, and lots me iu. beside the
nmhneled prisoner, aiid he tolls me
1 havo only a short time, say thirty
minutes to stay there.
Well, I begin to B..y lo the poor
man, "My friend I have seen the
Queen." "Havo you?" ho says.
"Yob." And then I begin to tell him
nbout the Queen, about the palace,
and to describe the pictures nnd the
gardens". ' Then T toll him of the
Queen's kindness tn me, and su the
time passes nwny. Then 1 say:
"Hore'a n nice bouquet of flowers 1
have brought you." Ho stretches out
his hand -with the clanking irons on it
and takes the flowers. . "Now! have
some, nice songs; shall .fling1 them?"
"You may if you'Hke." So I sing
one 'after another,' and by aiid by,
when I have nearly finished tlie last
one the turnkey comes and says,
'-Time's up, You cannot slop another
minute." "Well," I say, "haven't 1
entertained you nicoly!" "Oh, yos,
you have." Then I go out, the dour
is shut, the great iron gate is closed
after me; nnd all the time I had tho
pardon iu my pocket. .1 was to have
brayed and besought him to accept tt,
nut I lu^TO never mentioned it. I
have entertained hiin nicely; but 1
liave not given the message. 1 whb tp
havt) begged and reasoned with hiin
to receive tho pardon; but I hnvo not
Bpekcn of it. Hnvo I been faithful?
No, I have not. Am I not us bad as

A Battle-field Love story.
Apropos of romantic marriages, there
ia prpbiblyino tun in congress who
can show a b»tt(* record than representative William J. Stone of Kentucky. The story of Stone's terrible
wound on the battle-field waa told not
long ago, but the best part bf the atory
was left out.
The battle where he lost his leg was
near Cyrithiana, Ky. He was in the
confederate service, und after the hat-
tie was lying on the field, gasping for
water, with hia leg shot away almost
to the hip.. A federal soldier saw him
and asked him if 'he was not thirsty.
He replied that he was, and the Yankee went off and brought bnck a canteen full of water.. .He raised the
wounded man and gave him a drink,
and then in kiudnes* left his own canteen by tho side of what he thought to
be the dying rebel.   He said:
"I will leave this, as you may want
to drink again after a while."
Mr. Stone lay upon the battle-field
for some time, hugging the canteen to
him. The troops had now all left ihe
field and none but the dead and dying
remained. At this time a number of
young ladies from the town of Cynthi-
ana came to visit the battle-Held. They
had gathered up the ramrods scattered
among the dead, and ono of them finding Mr. Stone still alive nnd the hot
sun beating down upon him, took a
bundle of these ramrods und stuck
them into the earth, making a half-
moon of palirgofenoe about his hend.
Uver this ahe spread her shawl and
did what she could to ease him. This
young woman ia now Mrs. Stone, one
of the accomplished women of our
congresaional society. Stone fell in
love with her on the battle-field and
after his recovery he succeeded in winning her.—Cleveland Leader.
The Dark Ages.
The Dark Ages jb a nnme often applied by historians to the Middle Ages,
a term comprising about 1,000 years,
from the fall of the Roman Empire in
the fifth century to tho invention of
printing in the fifteenth.   Thd period
ia called "dark" bocauao of the gen
erally depressed state of European society at tfaie time, the auhaerviunuy "f
men's minds tb priestly domination,
and the general indifference to learning.   The admirable civilization that
Rome had developed and fostered was
swept out of eaistenco by the barbs;
ous invaders from Northern Bump-,
and there is no duubt that the first
half of the Medieval era, ttt least, from
the year 500 tri 1000, Was ono of the
most brutal and..ruffianly epochs in
history.   The principal characteristics
' of the middle ages wero the feudal system and the papal power.  By thc lirst
the common por pie were ground int■> a
condition of almost hopeless slavery,
by the second the evolution of just und
-equitable governments by the ruling
classes was rendered impossible thrmigh
the intrusion of the pontifical authority
into civil affairs.   Learning did not
wholly perill?, but it betook itself to
the seclusion of the cloisters.   Tho
monuUtfol were the resort of many
earnest scholars, and there were prepared the writing* of historians, metaphysicians, and theologians.   But during this tinie bari 'hvw. m the historian Hymonds says, ••onvelooed in »
cowl"   The study of nature was nnt
only Ignored but barred, save only ns
it ministered in the forms of alchemy
and astrology to the one cardinal medieval  virtue — credulity.   Still  tho
period saw many great bharactci** Arid
•rente fraught with the greatest importance tn the advancement of the
race.   We have not space to give even
a synopsis of  this lung period, but
wonld advise any one who desires to
get a clear ahd comprehensive viow of
the medieval  era to read1 'HHllMn'a

Privileged Publications,
Tho question ns to how far the publication in newspapers of articles otherwise libellous pet se Bhall be deemed
"privileged" bocause they are intended
for the public benefit und are in the
interest of public morals has long been
the subject of interesting discussion >n
the law courts of the United States, if
not in ours, lu the estimation of soun
of our. Canadian judges the grant thing
apparently is to devise means whereby
things which aro per 'se not'Ji hell ous
may .be brought within that category
and bo so characterized where newspapers aro involved. It iB quite different among our neighbors. For instance, the proprietor of the Philadelphia News was lately prosecuted for
libel by tho owner of a den of wretchedness, which the Nen's had described
and denounced. The judge, in giving
tho ohnrge to tho jury, said:—
"In matters of public interest it jb
the right, and not only tho right but
the duty, of public newspapers to call
uttcntion to evils which concern the
public, and certainly such publication
is the strongest remedy ever discovered
in n freo country to correct public
evils. Now, if there is anything which
concerns the public it {lithe habits and
morula of the young met) who are now
growing up, and who will at a future
day be the citizens of .this country.
Therefore, the aubject matter of thia
article is one of the greatest importance, and the publication is wlmt is
termed a privileged communication,
and' if it be a fair comment and justified by tho circumstances, it is not
only justifiable hut meritorious as a
public service.!'
Another cabo, in whieh the New
Vork Tribune was defendant, was
treated by anothor judge ih much the
same wny. In the description given
by thu Tribune of "Jhinaticis turned
loose," by an inadvertence of the reporter the delusion of one of these
lunatics whb attributed to another, uud
a demand for ."•20,000 damages wub
mule accordingly by the injured lm
tic. The judge, unlike somo we could
mention, instead of mousing abuut to
find indications of malice, where malice there could he nonersaid:—
"I haVo to 6harge you that the occasion of this article and of its publication are bucIi as to give it a condition
ally privileged character. I menu thut
the facts which evoked the Inquiry,
and the character, purpose and surroundings of the article nro sueh iih t-
require the plaintiff tn pruve iH-nddl
lion to the falsity which results from
thnt inaccuracy—actual malice, existing against him at the time of the publication. Ordinarily ihu luw infers
malice from the publication ,of any
article which attacks private character
—which is false in itself; but where
thb occasion of the publication, the
object wliich was designed, mul the
circuinstnnces surrounding il remove
thnt inference, tlft plaintiff must provi
t-xprcfiB malice. .1 churgc yon that,
under the circumstance* attending the
publication under consideration, eau-
aidering the character of the article,
thc person.who was sent to procure the
information, the person t'i wh-un ho
wont*'-ftar sued information, the fuels
which actuated tho inquiry mid the
piirpoto„dealgned, the words charged

to tho plaint ill, being uninioiiiiminlly
attributed to him, arc not per' se muli
oious, and thnt in order t« es<nblisii m
intention to injtiru bim the plaintiff
must produce evidence ot ncliinl
malice."
