(Cbrresponrlcnco of the Colrrmlilnn.)
Halifax, Jan. 9.—From tliis
city, within the sound of the billows of tho "deep-voiced neighboring ocean," of "Longfellow, I send,
at this late date, tho greetings' of
the Atlantic to the Puuilic and
wishes for a prosperous and bright
n^w year to tbe Columbian und its
subscribers; Dalhousie College
dosed for vacation on the 22th of
last month. During tho "evening
the students attended a musical and
literary entertainment in the college, after which they paraded the
streets with horns, whistles, and ull
kind of queer musical instruments
from which they drew such soul-
stirring strains as only students can.
They saluted a great mnny of tho
professors, somo of tho newspaper
offices, and the polico station.—
Well, the Shelburne election is over
ana the victory lieswiththe tory candidate, Major General Laurie. His
majority was seven, but on a recount it was raised to eight; so the
greatly boasted strength of the tory
party in Shelburne, of which we
heard so much, has dwindled to a
small majority. The grits account
for the result by saying that a number of their voters, about 13, were
away tishing und that the whole
strength of the conservatives was
present at the polls through the
help of the government.—There is
an old saying that thero is nothing
like going away from a place to
find its news. Wo havo had a practical illustration of this adage.
Some of the Halifax correspondents
of the American papers seem to
have a strong-imaginution and great
aptitude for the invention of "canards." Not long ago, two or three
drunken men landed on "St. George's
Island in the horbor, and tho American papers immediately had it that
an attempt was made by the Fenians to blow up the forts at Halifax.
But the latest one is a graphic account of an embreyo meeting among
the soldiers of the York and Inn-
coster regiment, during which thoy
attempted to set fire to their barracks. The report goes on to say
that three of them were sent to the
guard house, on suspscion, and the
sentries doubled. Tho writer of these
stories ought to drop news-gathering
and take up novel writing a la
Haggard for which his genius seems
moro fitted than for truthful newspaper correspondence. It is needless to say that tho second story has
if possible less foundation than the
first.—J. W. Longley, the Attorney-General of Nova Scotia, and
chief champion of commercial
union, is, at present, in Boston attending a meeting of those interested in the subject.—About two
weeks ago, McNeally, tho Saco bank
robber, was caught hereby Detective
Power. Since the arrest the detective has been detailing some of his
shadowing movements. Amongst
the number who fell under his surveillance were two young men from
British Columbia who registered ono
ovening this summer at tho Severe
Houso on North street. Power had
beeninformedthatMcNeclly.whohad
a companion, with him, wore glasses
and was a youug man about twenty
years of age. Ho"shadowed"tho pair
to a town on the Windsor and Annapolis Railroad, but just when ho
thought he had his game bagged he
found that he was mistaken and
that they instead of being JIcNrally
and his chum were, as ho says, "two
young professors from New Westminster, British Columbia." Thoy,
however, were quito ignorant evon of
the existence of McNeally and knew
nothingof the afl'air until itcarne out
in the Halifax Chronicle,—TheTom-
perauce League havepreforredcharges
against Mr. MaoKasey, the inspector of licenses for laxity in the discharge of his duties. So fnr the
commission hnve given no judgment
in the matter. Tho charges aro
very general and will, in all probability, fall to the ground, but Mr.
J. T. Buhner, tho prohibition ohani-
pion, is urging them for nil they are
worth. Tho Halifax License Law
does uot allow tho selling of less
than a pint of liquor, nor tho drink-
,ing of it in tbe shops; yet one man
gave evidenceof beingin nearly twenty liquor shops whero ho bought less
tlmu a pint which ho also drank on
the "premises.—Lieutenant Colonel
Milsom, formerly of tho 02nd regiment, died on tho 3rd inst., and
was buried last Friday, in tho soldiers burying ground at Fort Massey. Tho plumed hearse, tho dirge-
beathing bunds, the reversed rillirs,
tho regular step of tho long Hues of
red-coats, and the solemn burial service all combined to increase tiro
solemnity of the occasion, and to
make ono reflect seriously on the
words of Addison, "surely, 1 said to
myself, man is a shadow nnd life a
dream."

NOT ROOM ENOUGH   KOIl   TWO    WOMBS
IN" SPAIN,
London, Jan. 20.—The virtual if
not actual, expulsion of the ex-Queen
Isabella from Spain, is due, it is ascertained, to the discovery of a pint to
place her upon the Spanish throne as
Regent, pending the arrival at the age
of majority, of her grandson, the baby
Itint! Alfonso XIII. Queen Christina,
the present regent nud mother of the
King, upon the discovery of the in
tl'igue, insisted that there was not
enough room in Spain for both Isabella
and herself, and being very comfortably situated in her official .rind domestic "establishment, she would prefer
that the ex-Queen should do the travelling necessary to place the. boundary
lino of Sp.-iiiir.between them.
BBRESFOItD's   RESIGNATION    CAUSES   A
CLAMOR.
London, Jan. 20.—The rosignatifm
of Lord Charles Bores-ford has nosed
quite a breeze both in political and club
circles and in the columns of the press.
A portion of the tory press condemn
tho action of the intrepid sailer aa reflecting upon the naval administration.
But othor conservative newspapers are
Bitfiiciently outspoken as to declare
their bolief that the present system of
currying oil the naval department of
tho government forced him to resign
ns tin** means of disclaiming any responsibility for tho bungling methods
and tlie short-sightoti economy just
now prevailing in the'admiralty office.
Foremost among tlio news-papers supporting Lord Bercsford'a action is the
St, James' Gazette, which assorts that
the reasons given hy the admiralty for
Lord Bereaford's withdrawal arc insufficient, adding that the country
must know more of the truth of the
reason impelling his notion, and the
sooner the butter, both for the country
ami for those responsible for the country's loss of Lord Chin lea' services iu
tho naval department. Lord Bereaford's popularity with tho masses*, by
reason of his conspicuous gallantry
during the bombardment of Alexandria,
his disregard of tradition on the occasion of the last naval review nt Spithead, that a man may nut he a man in
the presence of the queon, and Iih independent criticism of the naval ad-
rainistration during the lust few years,
is enormous, and public opinion is
largely in his favor. Even in the ab-
sciico of anything like an explanation
of his course in the present instance,
tho people generally condemn Mr,
Gosohens opposition to Lord Bores-
ford's schomos for increasing tho efficiency of the navy and strong'honing
of England's defences ostensibly on
tho Bcova of economy,' and it is likely
thnt tlie ohancellor of tho exohequer
will find himself confronted with tho
necessity for a more lucid explanation
of his promises than ho has hither-
to ovinotd a disposition to vouolu&fo,
THIS MORNING'S DESPATCHES.
COWARDLY BOUIHBRNBRS,
Barkesbubo, \V. Va. San. 21.—Tho

How doctors do sometimes differ
may be seen hy perusing the report
of the political meeting hold in Victoria last Wednesday night as reported by the two leading newspapers. The meeting was held in
the interest of Mr. Williams, the
opposition cundadute. The Colonist
says:.^ "ilr. Williams made a miserable effort last night. Thero was
no enthusiasm, and the audience
seemed to be about three-fourths
supporters of the government." The
Times says: "The old walls of
Philharmonic Hall havo seldom resounded to more rousing and convincing speeches, or contained a
more enthusiastic assemblage than
on the occasion of tho opposition
rally last night." Of course one of
these organs must be lying (under a
misapprehension), but we have no
means of knowing which of them it
is—indeed it is quite possible both
of them have gone beyond the actual truth. This is one of the beauties of tho party system. Persons
at a distance who peruse these two
reports will be greatly puzzled to
know what sort of a meeting it was.
If there was a really independent,
reliable newspaper in Victoria, more
concerned about its reputation as a
newspaper than its allegiance to a
political party, we might havo received a report of what actually
took place, without varnish or disfigurement.
The contest in Viotoria for the
seat made vacant by the resignation
of Mr. Prior promises to be conducted with a good deal of vigor and
with quite a few heavy weights in
the foreground. At the meeting
held in the interest of Mr. Williams
on Wednesday night addresses were
delivered by Mr. Beaven, leader of
the opposition, Mr, Humphreys.
ex-Mayor Fell, and Mayor Grant.
Among tho audience were Hon.
Robt. Dunsmuir, Hon. Theo. Davie,
and other prominent government
supporters, lt is announced that a
meeting in the interest of Mr. Duck
will be held to-night, and Hon.
Theo. Davie, among others, will deliver an address. Mr. Davie will
doubtless be backed up by other
leading government supporters. He
is a pretty hard hitter himself and
will hold his own against either Mr.
Humphreys or Mr. Beaven. One of
the chief accusations brought ngainst
the government at the Wednesday
night meeting was its squandering
of the public funds and the public
lands. One of tho speakers intimated tbat the province would bo
bankrupt in two years, and another
declared that the present government was the most corrupt that
ever existed on the faco of theeartb!
Tonight it is probable some light
will be thrown on the financial situation, and it needs no prophetic
vision to assure us that when all
tho facts come out the showing will
be very much changed from that
which was presented at the opposition meeting.
A writer iu the Victoria limes
of Wednesday, speaking of the mail
service between Victoria and San.
Francisco, points out that the stipulation originally mado by the Dominion government had already been
broken, and that the chango had
been in the interest of a better service. The clause in the agreement is
quoted as follows: "The Dominion
will provide an efficient mail service fortnightly by steam communication between Victoria and San
Francisco, and twice a week between Victoria and Olympin; tho
vessels to be adapted to the conveyance of freight and passengers."
Every person knows that tho service between Olympin and Victoria
was long since abandoned, and u
service from Seattle substituted.
Moreover, instead of this service boing twice a week, it is daily. If
the federal government, therefore,
holds the province to the letter of
the agreement, it may withdraw the
Seattle subsidy nnd substitute for it
a by-weekly scrvioo from Olympia,
which would be a great misfortune
to the province. It is to be hoped
the whole matter may be amicably
arranged, and that in any modifier!
tion of the original terms agreed
upon the interests of British Columbia may be secured. This province
has suffered a great deal because of
its isolation from the other provinces of the Dominion. While its
natural market lay beyond the na
• tional boundary, the Canadian tariff
has forced us to do a great doal of
our trading with eastern Canada at
a very heavy cost in freight charges.
In proportion to our population we
have contributed a great deal moro
than any other provinco to the federal revenue, and are entitled now
to special consideration. Our mail
Borvice is undoubtedly expensive to
the federal government, but our connection with the confederacy has
been very expensive to us. If the
San Francisco mail subsidy is withdrawn (and, perhaps, it could be
withdrawn without any injury to
the commercial service which, after
all, i» the.only one of any importance now), this provinoe ought to
be compensated in some other way,
either by receiving a lump sum from
the federal government or an annual
grent to the provincial treasury for

Shun the First Drink.
"I'll take  juat one glass, only one;" the
youth said;
"Forearely one glass I liavu no need   to
dread."
Oh you foolish young man; how I wish
you could hear
All the devils in hell, how they laugh
and they cheer;
For they know very   well   if   with one
you begin
Vou may yet bo a slave to their aide-do-
camp, "Gin."
That glass welds a links in Ids terrible
chain
To break which all your struggles  perchance will be vain.
They know the beginnings are all   with
"just one;"
But  'tis with the  first-glass   that the
thraldom's begun.
So shun that first-glass if you wish to be
free,
'Tis baleful and  deadly,   like the dread
upas tree.
Oh be wise,   put it   down;  don't   taste
e'en a drop.
If you never begin you will  never need
stop.
You think you are strong and could Htop
you are Bure,
But prevention, dear friend, is far better
than cure. 1>.
For What Aru They Fighting;,
They aro fighting for the personal
liberty to make the liquor dagger drink
the precious blood of our noble motherhood.
They nro fighting for liberty to Bend
your son, or brother, or kinsman to a
felon's cell.
They are lighting for a traffio that
thrives best when most human hearts
are crushed.
They are fighting to dynamite Christian civilization.
Thoy are lighting to depopulate
happy homes and people the abodes of
despair.
They aro lighting for tho privilege of
crowding asylums and prisons with
wrecked spirits.
They are lighting to tux public
wealth to harbor and support thoir debased and improverished product.
And shall they light for victory? Uo
up and astir, my countrymen. No
holier wnr ever nerved a human aim,
or stirred a human soul. Mako this
year register an advance movement
for private and public righteousness.
The uge is on tip-too, anxious to place
humanity upon higher ground in life
work. Will you not be a co-worker?
—Issue.
The Liquor Trade Is Doomed.
Tho liquor interest has made its own
bed and determined its future. A
sober second thought may reveal tho
light it has long needed. That interest needs to comprehend that there is
silently maturing in the land a conv c-
tion that excessive liquor drinking ts
the greatest of all evils tlmt afflict the
country, and tlmt it has becomo necessary to deal wilh the question accord
ingly. Tho process by which this conviction is ro ichod is silent, but anru
It is operation iu thdu-iands of families,
where nre closets tenanted by skeletons. It is accelerated by every day's
experience, and the rensojis are seen m
the taxes which examination of publio
expenses arising from liquor drinking,
ns well as of graver consequences, at
once discloses. There is, there can be,
nothing personal iu this. It n solemn
reality which cannot bo disguished.
Tho London Times, as far back as
1858, stated: ''It is a peculiarity of
spirit drinking that thu money spent
in it is in the best thrown away. It
neither supplies the natural wants of
man nor oft'ew an adequate substitution ***** No way so rapid
to increnso the wealth of nations and
tho morality of society could he devised ns the utter annihilation of the
manufacture of ardent spirits, constituting, n* thoy do, an infinite waste
nnd an unmixed ovil.' At a later dale
it said; "The u-je of strong drink
produces more idleness, crime and misery than all othor crimes put together.
* * :f* Drinking Iw files us, con*
founds us, shames Ua, and inooks us at
every point. It outwits alike the
teacher, tho man uf business, thu patriot, tho legislator. Every other institution tb'unders in hopeless difficult ieti,
the public house holds its triumphant
c-urec."
Over a century ago, in the British
House of Lords, Lord Chesterfield, in
spenking of prohibition of the traffic in
ardent -spirits, amongst other things
said these memorable words; "Let us
crush thca-j artists in human slaughter, who have reconciled their country
to sickness and ruin, nnd spread ovor
tho pitfall of debnuchory such a bait
as cannot be resisted."
During a single year there wero
shipped to the west coast of Africa,
from Germany, 7.130,230 gals, of rum;
nnd from Great Britain 002,328 gals.;
from tho United States whiskey uud
ram to the amount of 1)21,000,412
gallons. Grand total of whiskey and
wino supplied to heathen Africa by
threo Christian nations, 7,050,070 gallons.
The saloon-keeper depunds upon tho
day laborer for the bulk of bis patronage, ond tho toiler's hard-earned dollars make his bank account to swell.

doubt, tlwroliva with me?.
"\t>,   ihe barely whispered.   "You
Iknow nil, and I will not disguise the
'truth.   1 loved Mm."
Then she lifted Iter (ace, all her vole*
coming biiek.
"Life in valueless to me now.   Kill me,
'■ too, an! so complete the work ol venge-
anrre."
"I will," was my answer,
i  And drawing a knife, I plunged it Into
her bosom.
I She expirod with scarce.» sigh. A.
smile ol heavenly sweetness seemed to
hover shout per lips as she Hli back
upon the grass,, her life-blood mingling
its stream with Royal Itayne's. Ah,
.Heaven! how beautiful she was—lovelier than ever in the icy embrace of
death I The fatal beauty that had been
'of those two the bane.
I was stunned for a while, but finally
'iny senses returned. Something must be
done to conceal the crime I had committed.
1 liaising Vera'slifelcss body in my arms,
I bore it to the rear of the suttimer-house,
kwbere some stories forming tbe foundation wall were loose, and thrusting it
through the aperture, replaced everything precisely as I li id found it.  After-
I ward ' returned to the house, mingling
| freely with the guests,   No one seemed
L to notice anything unusual in my appear-
*%nce.
As the evening wore on, sly whispers
and significant glances were exchanged.
The continued absence of Vera and
tltoyal Wayne was being commented on,
[ and one of the elder ladies said, in an
Liudihle whisper:
r "Of course, thoy have fled. It is strange
how Mr. Delmar can renrainigoorant of
•what is Bo patent to everybody e|so."
The next morning Knyne's body was
discovered near the summer house, where
|I had left it; but'there could be no uncertainty as to how he had met his fate.
Tlie imprint of Tiger's teeth was all too
visible in bis purple throat.
Everybody wis startled, and there was
e great commotion.
Then the natural query arose: What.
Ihad become of Vera? The gossips were
"not long in stepping to the front with a
theory, she had Keen crazed by the
sight of her dead lover, they said, and
.was  wandering aimlessly   about the
pbountry.
I   To encourage this bolief! I scntscout-
_tag parties in every direction j the wholo
lejghborhood joined in the search.
From all sides came expressions of
lympathy and condolence.   I was looked
upon as a martyr.
Bnt oh! the long, dreadful days and
Porrible nights!   Often did I wakon from
oubled dreams, a cold sweat bedewing
forehead, to seo   * rrra's uu..* imso
listing at inn out of the darkness.
rAn indefinable fascination dtew me
laily to tlie spot where 1 had concealed

lnld her ns un and mark the changes
I lentli lind wrought
One morning, unable longer to resist
:he impulse, t stole secretly to the sam-
jier-liiniHir, aud, removing the stones,
irarigad forth the body of mv victim.
I ha I scarcely done this when a strong
, land clutched my arm. An officer of the
aw w. s standing at my elbow.
"I suspected you from tho first," he
aid, with a leer. "How there can be no

P1 sta ted and nibbed my eyes.  Tbe
luan's face seemed to be transformed all
ht once.   It was Royal Bayne who stood
y.'sirle me, shaking me vigorously.
I "Wake up, Delmar, anil trill ua what
'on think now of the East Indian drug."
I flung him off with a shriek of hos-
or, and looked around in uttet bewilder*
nent. J'(j
1 was sitting beforo the fint ta. the
io.vny hall, with the storm still howling
BuisUo. 1 saw my darling wile coming
To war I me, an expression ol deep coneern

'uic.r aroused me as from a trance. "Oh,

Perfect Hair
Indicates e. natural and healthy condition ol the scalp, and of the glands
through which nourishment is obtained.
Wbsn, In consequence of age and disease, the hair becomes weak, thin, and
gray, Ayer's Hair Vigor will strengthen
tt, restore Its original color, promote Its
rapid and vigorous growth, and Impart
to it the lustre and freshness of youth.
I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor lor a
long timo, and am convinced ot lta
value. When I was 17 years of age my
bait began to turn gray. I commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
the good effects tt produced. It not
only restored the color to my hair, hut
so stimulated its growth, that I have
now moro hair than ever before.—

U too abe siotebiiio from debility
and loss of appetite; if your stomach is
out of order, or your mind confused;
take Ayer's SarsapariUa. This medicine
will restore physical forco and elasticity
to the aystem, more surely and speedily
than any tonic yet discovered.
For six months I suffered from liver
and stomach troubles. My food did not
nourish me, and I became weak and
very muoh emaciated. I took six bottles
of Ayer's SarsapariUa, and was cured,

Found Head.
This morning about 7 o'clock ns
Thos. Cusnerley, stable foreman of tho
Royal City Mills, was going to work,
ho oamo across the body of an ludiuu
woman lying on the sidewalk, n short
distance from the stables. Tlie body
was almost naked, having nothing on
it but a chemise, with a jacket tiyound
tho head and a pair of boot on the
feet. In course uf a fow minutes some
of the stable men came along und the
body was carried inside and wrapped
in blankets in caso some life might yet
have remained. Tho precaution wns
useless as it soon became evident tho
woman was quite dead. Tliu police
wero notified of the occurence and cm
enquiry it was ascertained the name of
tho unfortunate was Susie, who had
boen a resident of theswamp fnr a long
time, She has lived with a white man
for somo yours and by wlnnn sho had
one child, a littlo boy, who ii lit ing
with the dead woman's mother. The
father is at prc3cnt on Bute Inlet where
he is employed as n logger. Susie
was seen In3t night in the
company of a white man and it is supposed sho wenttoiiis shanty, got drunk,
and then wandered away in the almost nuked condition in which she wat
found. It is supposed she-slipped and
fell, and, not being able to get up,
filially died from exposure. The coroner has been notified and an inquest
will likely bo ordered. This case should
be thoroughly and minutely investigated into and. the guilty party, who
furnished the liquor, givon the punishment which is his due.
Allot Hide.
Yoatcvday afternoon au enterprising
littlo chap, who wanted to join his
companions in coasting, but didn't
possess a sleigh, procured a steel shovel on which to mako the intoxicating
descent. Tho shovel proved to bo all
that was expected in the way uf speed,
but an extra was furnished which unfortunately was ni>t taken into consideration before llie start was made,
Getting a fair start the shovel went
gaily forward with increasing speed
at every yard, and for three seconds
the boy was happy for in that timo ho
had passed several sleds steered by
boys who but a few minutes beforo
had refused him a slide. But lm
pleusure Boon vanished as the shovel
became warm from the friction with
the ice, and when five short seconds
had elapsed, that bny could have taken a solemn nffadavit that his breeches
had never felt quite so warm before,
uot oven when tho maternal slipper
was beating the ' "devil's tattoo*' on
them. The speed soon became terrific and the samo can de mid of tho
heat. A look of unspeakable agony
settled on tho boy's face, there wasa
thousand tortures at every bump, but
until tho bottom of the hill was reached there was nothing to do but grin
and bear it. When the Bpeed bouon
to slacken tho youth took the earliest
opportunity of rolling oil'thu shovel
and striking n boo line for home, in
cheerful anticipation of feeling his
troubles aggravated by another visit
from the maternal slipper for baring
destroyed tho seat of his Sunday pants.
An Evening Wllh Auric nt tlrtsoury.
Almost overy master mason iu the
city was presont last night in
Union Lodge to listen to the discourse
of Dr. Rob Morris, poet laureate of
Masonry. The lecturer, unfortunately, wns suffering from a severe cold,
and the strain in reciting his poetry
and giving an account of his Masonic
researches, must have heen great, but
in spite of this draw back the evening
proved a very valuable one to tho
members of tho craft, whose interest
was undiminished from boginning lo
end. Dr. Morris gave a very short
history of Masonry in the United
States from tho dato of the unti-
Masonic movement in 1822 up to the
presont time, and also compared Iho
moral and social standing of masons of
to-day with that of tifty years ago. It
Is needless to say tho standing of the
order to-day U very much superior to
what it waa fifty years ago. Thu account of the lecturer's researches in
thu Holy Land, anil the discoveries lie
made whilo there, were especially interesting, and to most of tho oreihorn
present the discourse proved the key
to many points in Masonry they had
not yet mastered. Dr. Morris has
c-trriud his researches into many countries and has spent many yoars in
proving what he always believed to be
a fact—thu antiquity of Masonry, and
ho has succeeded in bringing to light
conclusive proofs that thu Ancient
Order of Masonry dates back to tho
huilding of King Solomon's Temple,
During tho locturo Dr. Morrii rootled
several beautiful masonic poems of his
own composition, which elicited the
warmest applauso from his listeners,
At the conclusion of tho loot uro Dr.
Morris coufenvd upon all prbsotit the
degrco of the "Pilgrim Knight* ef the
Oriental Order v of tho Palm Shell."
This degree was brought, frmn llio
Holy Land by Dr. Morris, who was
tho first to confer it. in Amcrici. At
Iho conclusion of the ceremony AI. W.
Bro, Clute, D.G.M,, seconded by V.
W, Bro. Bis Lordship Bishop Sillitoe,
Grand Chaplain, moved a vote of
thanks to Dr. Morris for tho very interesting and instructing lecture he
had favored his audienco with. The
motion was carried unanimously.
