Tlw oprttirn In tht wotlltmand
cotton mills of tkls country, who
ara paid by pieon work a, most of
thorn are, ai* pnid ten per out or

tlio tonus of tho paym.nt.may be,
ployed in EngUsJi mills. Instead of
bringing in lo th.m higher wages,
tho tariff secures to theni, if itny-
thing, lower wagon than they
paid in England. That they receive
mora at the end of n Week is Sue
to the performance by them, of a
larger quantity of vfork.— Boston
Herald.
The laat advice from the British
minister at Washington casts a
gleam of hope on the unblessed fisheries question; but wo fear the
gleam will prove delusive. Tho
ditKoulty is not diplomatic, but political. The American senate being
Republican will bio ft any treaty or
arrangement nude by a Democratic
president. Recijroiiiy is blocked
in Ihe same way, while domes'ic
legiriatipn at Wiishiugtoii is b|ookad
by tlie antagonism between the
house, whioh is still Democratic, and
the senate, whioh is Republican,
Moreover, tho government itself be-
gins to feel tlie infl jauce of the coming, presidential election. Mr.
Blaine's programme is . a spirited
foreign policy; tint is, a policy of
insult ami menace to Great Britain.
Of oaurae h» wat dun the negotia.
tions on, the Ballerina question yrjr.li
malignant vrsrittnte, and would
pounoe at on se juoii anything liko
concession to Great Britain. The
disposition of tliu president and of
Mr. B yard is undoubtedly friendly
to uu hotimubk- Hittlement; but
ovon they cannot euinn;ip»t» themselves from the tyranny of faction.

Lessons from the Fire,
With all the appliances of modern^ inlSetftioii^it seeuisimtostrous
that three human beings.should be
suffocated and burnt right-in the
city and almost before Uie eyes of
the citizens. Yet this very thing
occurred at 2 o'clock this morniug,
and tjie. .citizens found themselves
powerless" to' render effective assis-
tanfe:'From these painful events we
ought' surely to gather some lessons
that will' enable us to prevent the
recurrence of suoh a. catastrophe.
It is time for the citycouncil to
relati%i t*. '■■.iAjtwy mffch. more::
stringent than any that are how in
existence;.. These re>julatir*s;should
relate to the construction of public
buildings and the means of escape.
from them as well as to the conduct
of citizens generally.. The Arling
ton'ftotei- was a very old building,
and - the means of escape in case of
tire, do not seem to have been of a
character to meet the requirements
of Such fire .regulations as ought to
exist.. The council last yeur took a
most."importiintstep-in the right
direction when it passed a law preventing the erection of inflammable
buildings within certain limits: ihe
council of this year ought to earry
the '■ principle ol prevention* still
further and lay down certain rules
whieh must be complied with in the
erection of all houses intended for
public accommodation or entertainment. It is of very great impoit
ance to guard against the destruction of property by fire, but it is of
vastly greater importance to adopt
every 'ap'plinhciT thait may tend to'
protect life in. such emergencies,
Every,' publio House" ought to be so
constructed as to afford reasonable
facilities for escape in the event of
a sudden conflagration. ' It often
happens tliat this consideration
never enters the minds df those who
build them, or even of those, who
keep them. There should be provided, also, for each, upper room in
a hotel .JioJMt,;»iWhV kinlj,^. fire-
escape. A rope, properly secured
at one And, and that could be readily
thrown out pf the window, is sometimes sufficient to save life. If
sueh a thing had been in the rooms
of the Arlington; in all probability
Thomas .'.McKay, would not have
been killed this morning. Tho fire
also-demonstrates the necessity of
better arrangements for giving the
alarm and, getting-the fire brigade
in readiness for Work. Only a comparatively small portion of tlio peo-
. pie heard' the firo alarm at all tliis
morning, and several prominent off!
cers of the fire company knew nothing of ■the-Threatrflplie until it was
,11 over. The result of this wus a
long ^and unnecessary delay iu getting j$qsteam dre engine to work.'
We are told that electric bells could
be placed in the houses of the chief
fire officers J|t a cost of .about $30,
and whenever the alarm was sounded every (tee-iif' these belts 'would be'
ret in motion.. If this be true, by
all means let us have the electric
bells without an hour's delay. It is
also suggested that three other fire
alarms should- tie provided, two ih
St. Patrick's ward and one in St.
Andrew's, and that, communication
be e*t»bJWhed between them and the
engine nouse. when a fire occurs
at any considerable distance from
the engine 'house,* the time lost in
reaching the alarm Is very serious,
and the establishment of the three
alarms suggested would often be the
means of saving a great deal of
property., it is desirable that the
engineer, or the assistant engineer,
of tho ateam engine should sleep in
the',' engine Inline or "very near it.
He would then catch the first strokes
of ttutkUtaii.tiell, ana1 would be ready
to *|f|h^''**#-ittgltijSjtire? and have
evenrthin^' prepared for work when

A Heart-rending Scene. -
A disastrous fire, which"brolt« out ot
an early hour this morning in the Arlington Hotel and whioh was attended
with the |oss of throe human livoe, has
given d painful shook fo the whole,
community. Many heard the alarm
aud camo to the lire, but: tlioso who
were not aroused or who were mistakena» to tho: oxtont of ;ihe conflagration, or for otlior reasons, did not
go out, wero  dumfounded this morn-,
- ing at the news of tho terrible death
of threo men,, two of whom wore well
known citizens. ' The fire started about
2 a.m. Mr. Campbell, the,proprietor'
of tho hotel, had not closed the bar at
that hour, but a vory short time before the alarm sounded had gone with
a couple qf friends to an oyster saloon
for refteslimenta. A lodger, Mr. Jno.
Owens, wns ouo of tho first to arrive
at the building after the firo broke out,
and but for his prompt steps to arouse
the sleepers  we, should have had a
-much more terrible calamity to record.

sight: was   actually horrible,   Iu
scene waif one which none who law
would care to witness again. Tfie deceased, Thos. McKay, was a native nf
Osgoode, Ont., which province ho
left 20 years ago and went tu, California. He camo to this province' 11
years ago, and has moat of the time
sinon carried on tho business of contractor in this city. Several of the
best buildings in tho oity have been
erected by him, and at the time of his
death he. was engaged in. completing
the new hospital. He waB an enterprising citizen, and his terrible death
haa
OAST A (ILOOH
over the city. He has two brothers residing in New Westminster, Jaa. Mo-
Kay, a teamster, and Steven McKay, a
carpenter. The deceased ltufiis E.
.Brown, it is learned, was a son of Andrew Brown, of Hastings, Quebec. A
brother, Cyrus A. Brown, i. living on
Puget Sound. He generally worked on
the railway, and with a partner, Thos.
Williamson, who furnishes this information, recently took a contract - for erecting five miles of fencing along the C.P.R,
He was about 28 years of age. He is
well spoken of by those who- knew him,
and is, described as a sober industrious
man, Geo. Campbell was a native of
Shcrbrooke, Que. He oame to thia city
.about fourteen months ago to superintend cloth manufacturing in the woolen
.mill. He was about 00. years of. age.
He had no friends in the province except
those whose whose friendship he mado
since he came here. The remains of
Campbell and ' Brown, burned to a
crisp,-, wero .picked, up from among
the -ruins - thi. morning,' - placed iu
coffins and taken in charge hy
undertaker Lord. The body of McKay
was removed to Wintemute & Calbick s
premises pending an inquest. The escape of some of tne lodgers was narrow
enough. In two oasea partitions were
knocked down to make an exit,
escape through the door being
OUT OFF BY THE FLAMES.
Mr. Owens, whoso promptuess and
efibrts to arouse tlio sleepers cannot be
too- highly praised, was unable to
.reach his room when he had awakened
ithe others, and in consequence'he lost
-money and valuables to the amount of
9800. dn the alarm being given most
of the firemen turned out with great
promptness, aiid in a Bliort time hud
the hand engine pumping water onto
the fire from a tank under the engine
house. The Roland was stationed at
Ellard's tank, and did good exeoution.
It was a hard fight, as the fire in a few
minutes after the alarm was belching
forth from every window ond door of
the building, cteating intenao heat)
and that[tho firemen were able to savo
the adjoining wooden buildings without a scorch, ia to their credit. The
new ohief and assistant engineers made
a very gcod beginning. Tho building,
a large 3-story structure, was ono of
the oldest in the city, having been
erected about 2d years ago. It was nt
ono time known as the Columbian
hotel, and a largo amount of money
was, brought \n to its proprietors, uuder that name. At the
time of the tire - it was owned
by Mr. W. H. Burr of Ladners, who
had it insured for $1600. Mr. Camp-
boll ' had' $2000 on tho hotel stook and
furnishings, The origin of tlie fire is
unknown. Police Constable MoBrootn,
who sounded the alarm, says he saw
two men run away from the vicinity of
the building and turn up Church st.
when the fire broke out. Mr. Owens
remembers that when.going to the
"hotel he saw two men going up Church
street, but he dues not know if thoy
.wore running. The circumstance has
created some suspicion.
INOjt'EST.
An inquest on the body of Thos.
McKay commenced beforo Coroner
Ferris at 11 a.m. and waa concluded at
4:30 p.m. Mr. Corbould appeared on
behalf of the corporation. The following were the jury: T. J. Trapp
(foreman), Oeo. Milden, Chas. Murray, Frank Stirsky, W. B. Pall,
Daniel McMillan, Frederick Crake.
Sever 1 witnesses wero called and
lengthy evidence taken, in which nothing startling or important beyond what
is given elsewhere was brought forward. Following is the verdict: -
i "We, the jury summoned to enquire
into tho cause of the death of Thos.
McKay, find tliat tlie said Thos. McKay met with his death by falling
from the third story of the Arlington Hotel to the sidewalk
below on the morniug of Jnuuiry 16th,
1887. We respectfully dosiro to call
the attention of the publio to the
heroic conduct of Mr. J. J. Owens,
who at the risk uf hi. own life entered
the building in order to arouse the inmates, Who were all sleeping at tlie
time, from certain death."

The Now York Star's London correspondent on the 7th inst., cabled
tliat "there is a slight scare here arising from tho mobilization of tlfo two
English army corps, anil officers on
furlough, belonging to regiments, not
on the roster for foreign service, are
stated to havo been warned to hold
themselves in readiness to report for
duty, indicating that preparations-are
advancing for the formation of a third
army corps; It haa further transpired
that the war ofllce is pushing forward
arrangement, pointing to the army and
navy reserves and auxiliary forces being called out. Tlie activity of the
admiralty is still moro ominous. In
Liberal circles it is believed if these
reparations really mean war, they
ill lead to the fall of the ministry,
and Churchill would bu the first to
join, the Liberals in denouncing an interference by England in a continental
quarrel. The authorities of the fighting departments explain tho formation
of the two army corps and othor movements ou sea and laud as part nf the
arrangements for celebrating tho
Queen's jubilee. If this be so the
Queen's jubilee is going fai cost the
country as much aa Beaconfield's preparations to fight Hiissii at the close
of the Turkish war, when the Russian
forces were marching on Constantinople.

Early Sales of City Lots.
Eiiiioh Columbian i—In your issuo of
last ovening in giving aome accountof the
eale of city lots at the first salo of lands
in the Royal City,1 you inform your
readers that, the .prices realized wore from
$110 to $2000. Thit is pretty nearly
correct, though I find on reference to the
documents in my possession, to which
you allude, that at the lirst sale there
were no lots wlitoh realised quito that
figure,-hut as high as $1925. Tho pur-
enaaers of that lot were. D. O. F. and A.-'
D. Macdonald. You say, "this astonished everyone." Doubtless.it did, but if
people wore astonished at the high prices
realized at the first.sale, what must liave
beeu their astonishment- at the second
sale held in May, 1860? Mr. K. Dewdney acted as auctioneer, and prices
ranged from J105 to 93925, the purchasers being Mayer & Co., Victoria.
This lot brought the highest .figure of any
Bold, and is numbered lot 8, block o.
Lot 1 in the same blook brought 83000;
lot 1 in block 6, $2100; lot 4 in same
block, $3570—Thomas Harris purchaser.
In the revised assessment roll for th.
oity for 1S0O sovoral lots in blocks 5 and
0 were assessed' at £600 each. Yours,

J. 8. M'liachlan's Insurance.
Til. San Ule Company has Palil II. Policies, but oilier Companies Wnnt
Proor or llealh.
Fiom tbe Montreal Star.
Thero is every likelihood of litiga-
tiou concerning tho payment of the
policies of assurance held ou the lifo
of the lato Mr. J. S. McLachlan. One
company, the Sun Life, has paid ita
policies, but it is stated the others resist payment. It may be-that the
matter will be amicably settled, but
such is not the present appearance.
There was, as has been stated, a total
of ¥42,130.70 insurance on his life,
placed as follows: Iri thc Sun Lifo,.on
his life 97000, with a bonus of $130.-
70, and an accident policy in the samo
company for $10,0X10, making a total
of $17,130.70. Of thu accident policy
for {110,000,; (6000 of it wus reinsured
with tlie Citizens' Insurance Company.
Tho Sun Lifo lias-paid tlio §17,130.70
to the heirs.' Tho Citizens refuse to
pay tho Sun Life, add tho latter company will enter suit. Tho Sun Life
on paying the claim to the McLachlan
heirs, took from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with, 6' per cont. interest
compounded yearly ahould Mr. J. 8.
McLaohlan' ever -turn up alive. The!
other insurances wero $11,000 in London and Lancashire Life Co,, (2000 in.
tho -Etna Life, $2000 in tlio Dominion
Safety Fund and.a partnership polioy
for $10,000 in tho Accident Company
of North America. Thero waa a personal accident policy iu the latter company, and when J. S. McLaohlan left
Montreal some time ago, the unearned
portion of the prerniuhi was returned
nnd the policy cancelled. The, partnership polioy for $10,000 is contested by
the North America Company on the
ground tliat Mr. J. S. McLiichliin wns
not a registered partner nt tho timo of
his death. The partnership polioy
wna on the lives of the Messrs. Mc-
Loolihihs, Mr. Radford and Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In case of death by
accident of any of them the policy wns
payable to tlio survivors. llVien Aft-.
Brophy retired J from the Intsiness his
name ivas removed /rom the policy and
'another put in his place btitltecompany,
who never was and it not nine a partner.
While the Sun Life has paid its policies, tho others have expressed the desire to receivo moro satisfactory proofs
of death than have beon furnished
them, .Thu Citizens' Insurauce Com-,
pnny claims, first, that they wore not
notified of a desire for renewal, nnd
second, tlmt the premium for the second year, whioh began in August last,
linu not yet been paid. Tho polioy of
tho /Etna calls for the production of
tho body. Mr. W. McLachlan haB

The Origin of Meteorllles.
(By Richard A. Proclor.)
M. Danbree, who ia porhaps the
highest living authority on the subject of uioteiiriii.., bu recently made
an atiii.'iiiiceiiictit re.peoling theae
bodies which open, out the moat interesting idea, concerning their .ig-
niftciince. At the., idea, converge
fr"ih"«st. unexpected direction upon a
iho'iry-wliieh Lhiivolong entertained,
I tawa ajiecisl interest in discussing
them iind ] jfcetieve the reader) of
Harm's W'Msht, whether they accept
nr reject M. Danbree'a id... and my
own kindred theory, will find the
»'udy of the matter well worth their
while.
The inquiry, from M. Daubree'.
ui'iut of view, may be said to have
beggaiiwitk th. diacovery of th. cele-
bratiBO.ifak meteorite, (u they
wereMlM) bmught to E imp. by M.
NorJensilfold (pronounc J Norden-
aliield) from the western .hore. of
Greenland. In 1818 Sir John Rou
brought baok from hia arctic voyage
s'.me kauri with blades mad. from
nieces if irM. fnand by the Esquimaux near Diipo Vork. Aa nickel wu
found in thi. iron a meteoric origin
tai attributed to it. M. Norden-
■kjuld'. atlcntiun wa. attracted to
a ime specimen, of the aame iron deposit-id in the iConenh.g«n iniueuni;
and during hit voyage to Greenland in
1871) he Bought for the iron ina.Mi
which the Esquimaux described as
present In large ouantitics at Ovifak.
near Di«co; .lifcnd. Ho collectod
twenty niaaae., containing not leu
nric. Bui M. Sbenstrop, who wu
a.nr*jt;iWB.IiWi.ltoyfrft|i»iil: to find
nut und.»'"*h« condition, the iron
occurred, diwoverad n.ttve iron actually Imbedded in Ihe twultiorooks.tlie
blooki previou.ly found. It waa thu.
inconteatably demonstrated that in
matter ejected from the earth's interior there ia present at timo. iron alloyed with nickel, like meteoric iron,
and having the ;oryBtolline texture
supposed to be an exclusively meteoric
characteristic.
Now, M. Daubree had a year or two
before thia Indicated numerous feat-
urea of resemblance between meteorite, and the deeper terrestrial rocks.
He had even shown that bodiea not to
be distinguished [rom moteorites oan
be imitated by partially deoxidizing
these rook.. " Moat of the eruptive
rock.," he remark, now, presenting
hia full present knowledge of the matter, "differ considerably from meteor-
ItM.... A great difference alao appear.
In comparing meteorite, with the
muaet on whioh the sedimentary
•train immediately rat. Thu. we
never Snd granite or any of the mineral, associated with it in meteorites.
The analyais of meteorites muat be
uught in Ihe silicate rocka, which
originate in deep region, belom the
granite. A striking example of thi.
aimilitode i. afforded by the lavu
formed from the association of two
silicates, pyroxene and anorthite fold-
•par, and which correspond exactly
with the meteorite picked up at Jon-
xac on the 16th of June, 1819, and
with one which fell at Juvenu on the
13th of June, 1821."
This naturally auggcata the idea that
meteorite, had their origin under auch
conditions as exist deep within the interior of the oarth. Only, if meteori c
masse, were originally au situated, the
difficulty naturally ariaea, how did
they ever got out thence t Oan we
for a moment imagine the occurrence
nf eruptive action aufficiently energetic to propel masses from the interior
of a planet like our earth with velocities to great that the maun so expelled could never return to their
parent orb. When we tea that the
Ovifak iron mu.es were ejected, at
any rate, with tremendous energy,
though the date of thoir expulaion
waa comparatively recent—certainly
following the primary and secondary
eruof the earth', life (which were
themselves recent in her history as a
planet)—the idea seems certainly rendered admiasiblo that when tha earth
wu full of that fiery energy which belonged to her early youth auoh abac-
lute ejection, or practically inch rejection of muswi from her interior
might well have been effected. Rather
perhaps by geyser action, having it.
aourecBof energy deep down below
the glowing surface, than by auch vol-
eanic action u now take, place, would
the process of ejection have been
effected. The muse, ejected, though
many ot them would have weighed
perhap. hundred, of pound., would, of
coune, hare bean absolutely u nothing compared with the mighty man
of the earth.
Tlie aame reasoning applies to every
other planet, to the pant planet. Jupiter, Saturn, Uremia, and Neptune, and
to planets .mailer than the earth, to
all tne planet* of our .un'. family, and
alao to all the planets attending upon
the other aum. •
But alu the ume reasoning applies
with apecial force and directness to the
•un himself, and to liis brother tuns,
the atari. The sun, indeed, we can
examine, and he haa been actually
caught in the act of expelling matter
from hia interior with velocities ao
great that the expelled matter can
never have returned to him.
Observe, the evidence is not speculative. A mineral indicate, by ita
structure the circumstances under
wliich it was formed. Thus, then, we
can uy with confidence that meteoric
masses were formed under such conditions of temperature, pressure, and
combination ns exist only in the interior of large orbs in a sunlike atate.
We can reason out their origin then
quite satisfactorily, and thia is how the
reasoning proceeds: We muat suppose
silicons and the metals not combined
with oxygen, u they are now in the
earth. This implies intense heat preventing them from combining. When
eventually or locally oxygen came into
action, it united firat with silicon and
magnesium, for whioh it Jus greatest
affinity; then with iron and nickel.
If the gas were nll taken up by the
former substances, iron and nickel
would be left free, disseminated among
the stony silicates. This is what is
observed in meteorites, and M. Daubree hu been able to confirm tho interpretation of thu faot by experiment.
The interior of our earth telle us the
ume story. The meteoric musses, of
which some few may, but the majority
cannot, hnvo come from the earth, tell
us, then, in effect that the interiors of
the stars, or of auoh other orbs not
now stars, but once sunlike, us they
proceeded from, are akin in structure
in the interior of our own enrth. Iu
analysing a meteorite wo ore in fact
analyzing a apecimen from tlie interior
of a sun. Millions, nay, hundreds uf
millions, of yeurs have passed since
that meteoric body was elected; many
journeys it may have made from solar
system to solar system before, reaching ours, it came into cuual conflict
with our earth, and so brought its interstellar career1 ta au end. But
though it tell, us in reality of the condition of some sunlike orb, not u suoh
orb is now, but as it was millions of
years back in the past (an orb now perhaps opaque and life-supporting like
our earth, or add and long since dead
like the moon), the record may be accepted ua tolling us what is the structure and condition of probably every
orb in space—sun, planet, or satellite
duting the time when it is passing
through that sunlike stage whieh is
the early youth of every orb s career.
How strange are tho thoughts, then,
which are suggested by a meteorio
mass iu one of our museums! That
small mass hus pussed through regions
of space so vast that by comparison,
not the sun only, but the whole solar
system, uems minute. It lias been
known to us terrestrials for but a few
years, bnt ita birth in the celestial
•paces must bent millions of yean
back; and lastly, that cold, dull lump
of metallized stono tells of the intense
heat of a sun's interior, of overwhelming pressures, of inconceivable disturbance, nnd of noise so tremendous that
in companion with it all forms of uproar known oil the earth seem like
dead silence.
