The new Level gun which is to be
used by the Frenoh army is described as a very effective weapon. It
is a repeating rifle, throwing a small
stcol-pointed ball, which is propelled
by a newly-invented smokeless powder of great power. The balls revolve at the rate of 1,000 revolutions a
minute, and are effective at a distance of a mile and a half. In recent tests bullets at five hundred
yards penetrated a brick wall eight
inches, and it is said that at a mile
they will pass through a man as
easily as at ten paces. The cartridges are so small that a soldier can
carry two hundred! rounds.
Mr. Josh Wood, of Halifax,
states that he has made arrangements for building two fine composite steamers at Dumbarton, on
the Olyde, for performing the mail
service on the coast of Newfoundland under a contract with the Newfoundland government, and also for
carrying mails and passengers in
the winter months between Halifax
and Newfoundland. The vessels
are to be of 740 tons gross register,
and will be built with all modem
improvements and strengthened in
the best manner for contending with
ice, at a cost of $75,000 each. The
mail contract with the Newfoundland government will extend over
twelve years.—Mail.
Despatches from India say that
the Governor-General's recent journey along the northern frontier of
that country was undertaken with
special reference to the project of
building a railroad from Kurrachee
to the upper provinces. It is believed in India that the construction of such a road would enable
producers to place Indian wheat in
London at Is. per quarter less than
the present price. This is a matter
of some interest to wheat growers
in the United States. Another
statement which deserves their attention is one made by the Austrian Consul-general, at Venice in
a report to his government concerning the rapid increase of Italy's
wheat imports. The greater part of
this imported wheat comes from
India. He says:—"The Indian
wheat is the best (as compared with
that of Russia and other exporting
countries), and produces the highest
quality of flour. It is so cheap
thut competition by European producers is out of the question." Heretofore it has been said that the
growth ot the Indian wheat industry was impeded by the poor quality
of the grain. It iB reasonable to suppose that the quality will improve
and that the supply will increase.
It is high time for our wheat growers to procure a reduction of their
expenses and of the cost of transportation by means of a reduction
of the tariffi—N. Y Times.
"The wedding which wo announced last week would take place at
the residence of Judge Plunkett,"
says an Idaho paper in its society
column, "came very near being marred by an awkward occurrence. It
happened thus:—The bride, Miss
Duckie Plunkett, nnd her intended,
Mr. Frank R. Ellsworth, the enterprising young rancher of Pizen
Point, had just taken their places
under a large floral six-shooter, and
the Rev. Pendersnort was beginning
tho simple but impressive ceremony
when the proceedings were suddenly
interrupted by the unexpected arrival of the efficient Pizen Point
Vigilance Committee, which promptly lynched the groom to a large tree
in front of. the house on the Judge's
well-kept lawn for being implicated
in some horse-stealing operation at
the Point. Everyone, of course,
supposed that this would break up
the wedding, and regHrs were being
expressed on all side., when Miss
Duckie, with rare presence of mind
and commendable courage, stepped
forward and announced her intention of marrying the Rev. Pendersnort himself. This was received
with shouts of enthusiasm by the
assembled friends, and the ceremony
was performed by Justice Woolly,
who happened to be present. Thus
it will be seen thnt the decision and
promptness of the yound lady avoided a vory unpleasant termination of
the leading social event of the
week."—Chicago Tribune.

-    lARnCCLABfi OF THE   COLIISIOS.
London, Nov. 20.—It was the
Nctherlandsline of steamship Scholten,
from Rotterdam for New York whioh
canto into collision 10 miles off Dover
at 1 o'clock last night with tho steamer
Itrrsrr Mary, she sunk almost immediately. Tho Scholten had on board passengers and crew to the' number of
230, and of these only 90 aro known to
have been saved. Of tlie remaining
140, 27 havo been landed at Dover
dead, and fears are entertained that the
others were also lost, though a few of
them may have been picked up by
passing vessels. As soon as the news
of the disaster reached Dover, vessels
were sont to the rescue, but it does not
yet appear that, with the exception of
90 persons rescued and brought here
by the steamer Edre, and the 27 dead
bodies also landed here, any lives have
been saved. The steamer Rosa Mary
is lying off Ramsgate with her bows
badly stove and her timbers strained.
The heads of the Scholton's masts are
visible above the water from Dover
pier. A dense fog prevailed when the
collision occurred and the Scholten
was moving at half speed. No warning of the collision waa given, the sudden shook of the contact on tbe port
bow having heen the first intimation
to the officers of tho Dutoh steamer of
the proximity of another vessel. The
ship carried five boats, but only two of
thorn wero available, thd other three
being unseaworthy. The two sound
boats were lowered, and at the same
time it was reported on deck that the
ship was making water rapidly and
must soon go down. The scenes which
followed were terrible beyond description. Shrieks, prayers, groans and
curses mingled with 'the hosrse voices
of the oliicers giving orders, and the
ories of children clinging to their mothers' skirts were rendered still more
heartrending by the terror-laden
shrieks of the latter. The officers displayed admirable coolness, and remained on the bridgo and all the other
posts of duty until the last, several of
them who were provided with life belts
remaining until the vessel settled, and
leaping into the sea as she went down.
Within twelve minutes after the two
ships came together the Scholten was at
the bottom of the channel. All of the
passengers and crew who had been
fortunate enough to procure life belts
floated, and wero picked up by the
Edre's boats, which cruised around
until 4 o'clock this morning. There
is scarcely a person among the rescued
passengers who does not mourn the
loss of a wife, husband, brother, sister
or child, and in some cases only one
member of a large family is fouud to
have been saved. The survivors were
supplied with clothing by the officers
and orew of the Edre ns far as possible,
and additional garments were furnished to the unfortunates upon their arrival at Dover. The Scholten was a
first-class Clyde-boilt steamship, 14
years old, her not tonnngo wns 1,710
tons, nnd she was valued at about
$260,000. She hod accomodation for
00 cabin, 40 intermediate, and 500
steerage passengers.
THE rtSHBllY   COMMISSION.
Washinoton, Nov. 21.—Tlie fisheries commission held its lirst meeting
to-day. Around the heavy mahogany
tables six chairs were in readiness for
the British and American representatives, the seats of honor being reserved
for Mr. Chamberlain upon one side
and Mr. Bayard upon the other. At
noon the British representatives entered the elevator and Mr. Chamberlain,
Minister West, and Sir Charles Tupper were shown to the council chamber, where Messrs. Angell and Put-
man awaited them. Tho room adjoins
the office of Secretary Bayard, and he
promptly joined the party. It was
generally understood that to-dny s session was to be devoted tu a preliminary discussion of the nrrangemeuts as
to time and length of sossinns, tire
mode of procedure and ns to the reports or notes of tho procoodings to be
taken. When the conference was assembled, tho doors wero till closed and
guarded, and the distinguished six
proceeded with all possible precautions for secrecy nnd freedom from intrusion. The first formal meeting will
be hold to-morrow at 2 p. ni. No
stenographer will be employed, but
Mr. Bergno will act as secretary for
tho British members, and Third Assistant Secretary of Siato Moore as
secretary for the American govornment. As tho formal agreements nre
from timo to time reached, they will
be reduced lo writing, bur otherwise
nn fnrninl rooord of the proceedings
will be kept. No organization by election of a chairman or otherwise has
been or is likely to bo made. The
procoodings will consist simply of a
formal discussion, iu which the view
of each gentleman, ob advanced, will
be considered, A brief protocol, or
memorandum, of any formal agreements will be kopt and signed at tho
close of ench day's conference. At tho
meeting to-day tho commissioners
voted to keep the proceedings entirely
secret. It is quite probable that thia
action will prevent the secretaries
from making public even the memoranda of the formal agreements reached
from timo to time.

friend of the deceased. Ha saya Ban-

In speaking of the oxecution of
the Chicago anarchists the othor dny
we expressed a fear that tho event
might not have the effect of putting
an end to the pernicious doctrines
of those agitators. Full particulars
of the anarchist funeral have now
iromo to hand, and they confirm this
fear. The funeral was attended by
upwards of 50,000 people, and n
large proportion of these people are
said to have been in sympathy with
the principles and objects of the
men whom they had assembled to
honor. Thousands of women as
well as men wore the red and scarlet badges which are a symbol of the
order, and many gave fearless expression to their belief in the
patriotism of the men whoso scheme
was to destroy all authority, and
confiscate all property. Tho execution of these men will doubtless exercise a wholesome restraint upon
this lawless organization, inasmuch
as it shows a determination on the
part of the authorities to deal firmly
and relentlessly with the threatened
danger; but it is to be feared there
are many Billy people who will still
permit their emotions to run away
with their judgment, and persist in
clinging to a doctrine which promises nothing but discord and disaster.
In consequence of the resignation
of Mr, Muir, principal of Victoria
public school, the trustees some time
ago advertised for a person to fill the
vacancy. "We are informed that a
number of graduates from eastern
universities determined to apply for
the position, but when it became
known that they would be required
to pau an examination in this province, they withdrew their applications. If this information is correct, it seemi to us evidence that a
mistake has been made in the recent amendment to the school act
which requires graduates from universities of well known standing to
undergo an examination by the local
board. The result of this regulation will be to prevent our provincial ichools from obtaining graduates u teachers. It may be remembered that when the amendment was introduced it contained
a clause exempting graduates from
the provincial examination, but this
clause waa assailed by Mr. Beaven
and others with such success that
the amendment prevailed and the
clause waa modified in such a way
as to place graduates exactly in the
lame position u persons who have
never entered a university. Because
a man holds a university degree it
does not follow by any means that
he will make an efficient teacher.
Some graduates are utter failures
not only as teachers but in everything; but, other things being equal,
a person who has successfully gone
through the curriculum of a well-
conducted college is undoubtedly
better qualified to impart instruction
than one who has not enjoyed such
advantages. It ought to be the aim
of the educational department to
get the best teachers available; but,
aa a rule, good men who hold a
university degrte will not submit to
an examination by a local board.
Our very excellent cotemporary of
the Toronto Mail asserts that the
British Columbia government has
been censured because it sent no
representative to the interprovincial
conference, quotes from the Victoria
Times what it assumes to bo publio
sentiment, and concludes that this
neglect may be made use of by the
opposition to defeat the administration. Our Toronto ootemporary
seems to have left out of the ques
tion'entirely the character of the
organ from which it quotes. The
Mail has lately risen from the position of a party organ to one of independence. It now expresses sentiments which in the days of its
party bondage it dare not utter, and
advocates principles whicli it then
emphatically condemned. In view
of these things the Mail ought to
have ascertained, before quoting the
Titaat as an authority in politics,
whether or not it was a free agent,
or bound by party fetters. If it
had made enquiry it would havo discovered that the Times is a thorough-going party organ, and one
that seldom loses an opportunity to
misrepresent the government of
British Columbia. It is a matter
of regret that this province was not
represented at the conference, but
to lay' that the omission is regarded
with sufficient seriousness to make
it the instrument of overturning the
government is simply ridiculous.
We have no lyrapathy with the position taken with respect to the in
terprovincial conference by the Victoria Colonist, which dubs it is a
"grit" conolave, and, therefore,
something to be shunned. It was
not by any meant a grit conference;
and if it had been we are not sure
that this would have been sufficient
reason for avoiding it We believe
there are some good lessons to be
learnt from grits as well as tories,
and the man who blindly rejects
everything because it dots not come
with the particular coloring suited
to hit eyes is not a safe loader of
public opinion. We think the
scheme of the conference was an ex-
txotllent one, and it hu resulted in
k programme which may well enlist
I publio attention.
A Creaking Hinge

after which it moves easily. When the
joints, or hinges, of the huily uro stiffened

by its action on tho blood, relieves this

Working ordor.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases whieh battled tho efforts of tho
most experienced physicians. Wore it
necessary, I could givo tho names of
many individuals who havo been cured
by taking (Ids modieine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relioving mo of

after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impuro blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's SarsapariUa.—R. H.

Heiinm emcutrt—A Realistic Eaoct-WIg,
for Womon.
Tlicre ir a great deal mote to a wig
(linn iipneiirs lollro untutored mind even
of a Imlrl man. There, are ready made
iiinl mado to order wigs of almost as
riiniiy similes and styles as there are bald
n on to wear tliem. Tho prioe. vory from
a three dollar cheap mat of hair to hide a
raining Im.U sin.t to beautiful combinations Unit cost lm iiilrcds oi dollan. The
lirnt thing to be .lone in getting a frig is
10 deride how much you want to pay.
An ordinary plain weft wig, as it is
called, costs SIS, unless tho bald headed
man wants a gray one, which will cost
Si more. This wig will cover a bald
head as well aa a $50 ventilated wig with
game scams, btit the owner of it would
not feel as well or look as pretty as he
would with a wig with all modern improvements.
After the plain weft wig comes the
weft wig with gauze fearns. Thia wig
costs So n ore, and if extra quality hair of
tine looking gray dr, other rare color is
wanted its value may be as high as $30.
In a muze seam wig the parting of the
hair is on gauze, end the wig is more deceptive. The gnuze shows up white in
imitation of the natural scalp. It takes
more art to do this, and extra artcosU
money,
WITH ItAIB KIT SEAK.
Ambitious bald heads may buy the
wi ft wig with hair net seam. This is an
improvement still over the gauze seam,
rtiiil sveh Improvements cost $5 each—
gray hair extra rates. Wig manufacturers desrriho this ns "tlu highest perfec-
itiiuytt rallied in the wigmaker's art,
fur it In impossible to distinguish it from
<li' linriiiiiil purling, nnd hence this wig
imssirsses tho vii nahle desideratum ol
r nmbinliig naturalness nnd durability."
Wigiunkurs always spell wig with a big
VV, nml use Latin words in describing it,
lu s :OW their kmrwlcrlge of tbe antiquity
anil rlign ty of concealers of baldness.
The vcntilatr d wig, with the hair net
rreain, in tlic-top notch in wigs, and costs
from $:;."> up. It in an invention in which
|in jii'r wig niaiiiifacturera take great
j riile. A special crochet needle has been
invented for the making of this wig and
tin' haira nre crochetted in. The wig
with hair net seam, ventilation and all,
weighs only an ounce and a quarter for
mndei'ut'j sized heads, and an oimco and
a half for biir heads.
Five measurements are to he made to
hnve a wig a gooil Ut, and if the bald
man's head is lopsided, or if the bumps
are improperly developed, moro measurements will have to be taken. Measure-
in, nt No. 1 is around the head from the
tup of tho forehead, where the-roots of
ihe primeval hair were, down over the
i ais, and around the base of the skull.
The next measurement is from the remnants of hair roots on the forehead to the
base of tno bead, in a straight lino, back
over the expance of baldness. The tape
line is then to he run from ear to ear over
the forehead to fix tho longitude, and
from car to ear over the top of the head
to make sure of the latitudcot ths ears.
I rom temple to temple around the back
of the head fixes the dimensions of the
rear forehead. With all these full investigations must Iw marie as to whether
the person's hair was straight or curly,
irs color, where it was parted, long or
hurt, and thick or thin. Bald headed
p, ople usually prefer to have their new
l n r like their old, btit if they are not
particular and none of their old hair is
lelt to betray them, they can change the
part and shade and try innovations. It
ih not good form, however, among the
best families of bald heads to wear a
curly wig one day and a 'straight haired
wig the next, though the part may be
transferred from one side to the other U
attention is not called to it.
A BIAUSTIC XrnCT..
Eome bald headed people with consciences do not cover ill their boldness
hut leave a little exposed, thereby adding
to the realistic effect of their wigs.   For
such and for the mighty host of partially
Imlrl toupees are made.   The plain name
ior toupees is scalp wigs.   It is easier to
inter, a toupee than a wig,   Here are lull
i rcctious that people out in the country
in take advantage of:
Ciit a piece of paper the site of the
rrald surface on the top ol the head, then
uy it on this surface and plait the edges
at bo that Ute paper will fit close, and
over the bold part completely, thus giv-
ng tho exact shape of the head; then
raw a line with a lead pencil where you
rind parted yonr hair.   Now secure th*
: laits with a needle and thread'so that
rlitry will not come out; after which you
nn fold yonr paper pattern and Inclose
rith trample of hair, traJMher with in-
slriictiotu in envelope, for transmission
by post.
Instructions and •cheek for payment
arc safe things to send with the measurement. The checks run bom $10 up, according to the site ol the bald spot and
tho hair orthe bald man. Atoupeecan
be stuck to tbe head so it will not loll off
or be affected by raising the hat It
should be takeu off ereiy night and
rcBtuck the next morning. The plain
weft toupee costs $10, the game seam $2
extra, and the ventilated gante seam $3
more. Gray toupees cost extra. Toupees
with hair net team and game or imitation hair net foundation, which are considered In the manufacturer's catalogues
to be "thejTery^ga* of perfection In'
All flaw wigs ahd iodpeea ita for
men. For women they cost more, as a
woman's wig takes mors hair, and the
price runs up to anything women want to
l«iy, though the usual prices range from
; ,n to $100. Woman an measured the
Miino as men, and the directions printed
iilinvo for men will do for women just aa
< well. Women'a wigs are ln far greater
varieties than metfs. Besides the foil
ulg and thi tOUpess they hsve innumerable stylos of false fronts and half and
quarter; wigs. -Tw false fronts oan be
made to elaborate as to comb hick on
tho head and conceal partial baldness.—

NEW YORK TENEMENT SCENES.
Tho History of One Block-Evolution ot n
Tougli~ A Landlord.
Could the history of this single block
be written, say for the past yenr, it would
make strong men turn faint. Women in
the agonies of child birth on tbe ban
lloor, with tlio stench from cesspool r
rising unchecked to grout tho new born
infants, children of lender years coopci
up iu narrow c.ila with tliorr" siitlering
from contagious diBuiiit-H.; littlo .on m
!.'oinjr blind'rrirlr the terrible infootii'iis
ophthalmia which runs riol throhgii tho
poorer quarters, thu sick anil tho agc.l
turner! out into the street for daring to
complain of their vile quartern—in short,
a thousand terrible happenings to maker
freople wondoc if there isu Gorl in heaven.
,et it not he supposed that all of tlioso
houses are bad. iSomo—the greater piirfc
perhaps—are to bo classed as good in
themselves, but all are contaminated hy
tbe bail ones, and tho best suiter from
the outrageous, Illegal, inexcusable overcrowding.
Suppose you were born in a rotton
tenement, would not you bo a tough?
Ten to one that you would. iScarcly out
of your mother's arms you would lind
the whole world ngaiiist you. Your
father, if you had one cinl'iring tho title,
would get so sick of his nasty surroundings thut he would rush out mil accept
inebriation as relief; then lie would como
home and kick and bent you. Older
companions would bully you, teach you
to swear and steal, "tump" you in tin
neck when opportunity ottered. As you
grew up evil companions would cle'nvo
to you. No good influences would touch
your poor little life. You would have to
shun tbe filthy home and seek the solace
of the beer saloons. You would learn
all things evil nnd learn to ju lge evil as
good. You would be a tough jusTt as soon
as nature allowed you to. But the landlord is not to blame, his apologists say.
He makes a place for people to livo in
that they perforce shun. It drives them
to rum holes aa to a refuge. Yet the
landlord is not to blame.
Here's a lovely place for a civilized
city—the best oity in the world. Filthy
hallways, cellars with low ceilings rr I
damp lioors, bedrooms without ventilation save what conies through the doorways, and those of the top floors having
no ventilation. Thero are the delightful
apartments which are supposed to hatch
out the creine de la creme of inhabitants.
Hone ia one of them recently looked up:
Sho is a 25-year-old widow, comes from
Germany and has been six years in this
country. She ia a laundress. Maximum
wages $2 a week; minimum, fifty cents.
No other honest resources. Two 'children, aged 2 years, and 15 months. Kent
of two rooms, $4 per month. The bedroom is perfectly dark, the only light in
it entering by the door. There is no
window savo into the hall. Tbo young
widow is extremely pale and nervous.
She suffers from frequent attack* of
rheumatism. And she is put down as
immoral. Think of it! A women enjoying these luxuries immoral! How
perverse is human nature! The bouse is
full of Italians. It is never cleaned unless by tho tenants. The privies nre
never cleaned. And two innocent children, with such a mother, have got to
Slow up and face the world if thoy do not
ie in the growing.
The landlord who owns a big tenement
on Batavia street nas had put up a sign
saying: "So ball playing or other games
in thia yard. No lounging, and nobody
but tenants allowed in the yard." Aa a
tenement house boy renrark.nl recently:
"I'm tired of livin'. There's no place to
go; there's no place to plnv; there's no
use lu bavin' a holiday, anyway. If you
play ball in the park the cop chases you
off; if you play hall in the street youget
arrested. I'mtirodof livin'."—New York

The Street Car Conductor Talks.
Tho callow conductor poked his head
into tho car and aaid in a loud, distinct
tone, "Fourteenth street, station."
"when that young fellow knows his
business ho'll say,-'Fourteenth street,'"
commented the veteran of the road, who
had just mlormed the pansjiigorx that
the street they had reached was
"Teenth."
"Know any funny stories? See that
gentleman in the second seat there?
He's a broker, and a great covey lor
practical jokes. He's getting fat now,
and will die of apoplexy ono of these
days laughing ovor his own fakes. When
he goes irom his-house or olllce to take
a train, he will walk vory leisurely until
lie is within a few yards of tho station,
when he will suddenly break into a run
and rush up the stairs. If there's one
thing more than another that a man
hates to miss it is an elevated train, and
when tin fellows behind him seo tho
broker bogin to run, every Tom, Dick
and Harry of them within live blocks
rushes p llnicll to the station. Tbo broker appears to enjoy it. I've liear.l say
that running was good exercise; but is
seems to moke some men swear a great
deal. Haven't they got onto it by this
time ? Young man, when you hove lived
as many years in the world as I have,
you will lind out that nothing that appeals to tlio gullibility ,o. Iiuuuii uiituro
ever becomes a chestnut.
"Yes, I'm somewhat of a philosopher,
but it was tha profession that iiiii.Ij nu
so. You will notice that a woman nevor
gets out of this end of the car. It docsu t
matter even if she is in the rear seat,
whon she wants to get out she will push
her way right through tho car, though it
ia picked like a sardine box. Is it superstition or fashion ? Well, that's hard
to say. In a lioras dtr ihe will always
wa.lt out the other way, but perhaps in
that caso she is afraid of the horses."

Karl* Antola-te's Diadem la Bnflalo.
A well known Buffalo man, living on
the west side, has just returned home
from a trip to Europe. Among other
souvenirs he brought with him a diamond
made for and worn by Marie Antoinette.
The 'Mot is a plain band of Soman gold,
inlaid with a mosaic of opals, turquoises,
rubies anil sapphires, depleting incidents
In the lives of Helen and Dido. Above
this rises a spray pattern of beaten gold
exquisitely wrought, supporting a border
ol flour de lis composed of roso diamonds
and pearls. Three of the diamonds an
fro n the famous Golconda mines. The
monogram of the unhappy queen Is engraved on the inside of the fillet. This
so liehow escaped the notice of the
auctioneer, ol« it might have brought
much more than was paid for It, 50,500
trancs. ' The jewels alone are worth that.
Such a souvenir would excite great
interest if its possessor could be induced
to place it on exhibition.
Tho consumption of German beer In
France is rapidly diminishing. Tho imports amounted in IM to 7,l)->0,lll R gallons. In the following year they fell lo
7,1' 2,!>:-,U gallons, in IW to 6>il,v<n
gallons, anrl In 1888 to 5,143,754 pilous.
The diminution is largely attributable
tortile vexatious regii.atioiiB to which
German beer it subjected, especially in
Paris.      .

All Jim Recaptured.
It will be remembered that about
three weeks ago a Chinese prisoner,
named Ah Jim, escaped in a mysterious manner from the jail. Ah Jim
was committed for trial, at the assizes,
for stealing blankets from an Indian.
While in jail he was detailed to look
after the wants of the insane inmates,
lodged in that institution, and had the
run of the kitchen, which iris duties
made necessary. On tho morning of
Nov. 1st he turned up missing and a
seach was immediately instituted, but
without any fruitful results, and it
seemed as if Ah Jim hnd covered bis
trsil very skillfully. Mr. Moresby did
not give up tho chase, but quietly wont
to work and laid a sohemo to catch the
runaway, and it worked nicely in the
end. Yesterday morning word was
received from the junction that Ah
Jim, or someono very much like him,
was working iu the Chinese camp
there. Mr. Moresby, accompanied by
Ohief of Police Devlin, took tho 4:30
train and went up to tlie junction,
where they were joined by Constable
Armstrong, of Port Moody, who had
received instructions to be there. Tlie
officers then proceeded to the Chinese
camp, and so well had their plans been
arranged, that they camoupon Ah Jim
and nabbed him before anyone in tho
camp knew the officers were among
them. The prisoner was hand-oufted
and taken away quietly without disturbing tho camp, nnd by 8 o'clock the
wily celestial was once more behind
the bars. Ah Jim informed Mr. Moresby that ho escaped by jumping out
of a second story window to tho ground
and as there is no wall round tho jail,
he had no further difficulty in getting
away. Mr. Moresby deserves much
credit for ferreting out tho whereabouts of Ah Jim and bringing him to
justice, as it is a rato case when a Chinaman is captured after making his
escape.

boat to keep tbo ice from forming in
the lower part of the Frasor river.
That he bo informed that this council will take all precaution for the safety of the boat, and will be responsible for any damages incurred and for
expenses therewith. Also that the
member for this district be requested
to support this request.
Coun. Duncan supported the motion
strongly, and considered tho council
could not spend inonoy to better ad-
vantoge than tho little it would cost
to koop tho steamer moving during tho
short time the ice lasted. Tho motion
was then put and carried unanimously-
Moved by Coun. Jacques, seconded
by Coun. Duncan, that the council give
the necessary notice in tho local papers and British Columbia Gaiettt that
they will apply to the legislature of
this provinco at its noxt session for an
act to authorize it to bring water fo r
domestic, fire and other' purposes into
the oity. from.the,, Oop,uit!ara river or

8 o'clock.   Carried.
Coun. Duncan said he thought the
woollen mill by-law should be amended to grant tbo bonus on the same conditions ns the provincial grant, It
would bo unfair to the company to
forco them to bind up their whole
proporty for 81,000.
Coun*. .1 aequo, thought it wns unfair to expect ao much from the company, ond immodinte action should be
taken to relieve them from mortgaging
tho proporty for 01,000.
Coun. Bonson asked if there was
anything in the ferry by-law to force
the owner to put on a more suitable
and less dangerous steamer than the
K de K. Copt. Grant had promised

he did not think theso conditions hnd
ever been required.
Couns. Reid and Shiles were both
of the opinion that the charter was in
good hands and safe for tho oity.
Coun. Jacquos thought it was not
.afe in private hands, it mlght.be uied
for private purpose., and ho wanted it
in tno hands of the council.
Coun. Dunoon called attention to
tho largo amount of last year's taxes
yot unpaid, Thev amounted to nearly
81,000.     He thought   aome action

Mr. John Magwood, Victoria Road,
writes: "Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable
Dlscovory and Dyspeptic Onro Is a splendid medicine. My customers say they
never used anything so effectual. Good
results immediately follow its uso. I
know Its value from personal experience,
having been troubled forO or 10 years
with Dyspepsia, and since using it digestion goes on without that depressed feeling so well known to dyspeptics. I have
no hesitation in recommending it in any
caso of Indigestion, Constipation, Heartburn, or troubles arising from a disordered stomach."
H. F, MaoCarthy, Wholesale and Retail Druggist, Ottawa, writes: "I was afflicted with Chronic Bronchitis for somo
years, but have been completely cured by
the use of Dr. Thomas' Eolectrio Oil in
doses of live drops on sugar. 1 have also
pleasure in recommending it as an embrocation for external use.?'
