The increase of the Kussian armies on the frontier against Austria
and Prussia, reported by telegraph a
few days ago, was effected at the
beginning of the month. The encampments near Vilna, opposite tho
cities of Koenigsberg and Gurabin-
nen in Prussia, were increased by
considerable numbers of all kinds of
troops. The 13th division of horse,
composed of twenty-four squadrons
and sixteen cannon, was, in a body,
moved from Moscow, its former
quarters, to Lublin, in Poland, north
of Galicia, or Austrian Toland, All
these movements of troops were
made previous to the Czar's visit to
Berlin.—Ex.
The eleotion of M, Sadi-Oarnot to
the Presidency of the French republic, like the election of' M. Grevy
before him, is a triumph of moderation. In one way it is a disappointment, for it is a very natural feeling
whioh requires that the most eminent citizen of a republic should be
its chief magistrate, and it would
be absurd to pretend that the new
president answers to that description. In our own history it has not
been the rule to elect the most distinguished American to the presidency, nor even the most distinguished member of the prevailing party.
"Washington was no doubt the first
citizen of the country, and John
Adams and Thomas Jefferson wore
the leaders of their respective parties. But since the earliest days of
the republic eminence and personal
strength have not counted for
everything, If they had, Webster
and Oalhoun would have been candidates for the presidency and Henry
Olay would have been a successful
candidate. The test that has been
successfully sustained by M. Sadi-
Oarnot is the same that has been applied for two generations to American aspirants. It is the test of
"availability." Into the application
of it there enter many considerations
quite irrelevant to the ability, the
force, and the character'of the Men.
N. Y. Times.
Ths meeting to hear the views of
the members of parliamont who
have come to this country to promote arbitration as the means of
adjusting international difficulties
was n very significant and important
meeting. In Boston a similar
meeting has been held, at which
the gentlemen spoke, and at whioh
the Governor of tlie State, Senator
Hoar, ex-Governor Long, the Mayor
of Boston, and the colleotor of tho
port cordially responded to the ob-
ject and spirit of the English mission. Its reception by the president
has* been equally hearty, und the
significance of themission is the more
impressive because of the negotiations between Mr. Ohamberlain and
his associates from both countries
which are now proceeding in Washington. Ther ■ is a universal feeling that any scr ous difficulty between this country and 1. /;land
would lie a kind of unnatural and
fratricidal quarrel. Our civilization
and our institutions are at fault if,
honestly desiring peace and goodwill on both sides, we do nc equitably and honorably secure peace and
good-will whon troublo arises.
Where documents are uncertain,
and arrangements obscure, and
different understandings justifiable
and natural, thore must be of course
concession and forbearance tolecurc
mutual intelligence. The object of
fair negotiations under such circumstances is not victory, but settlement Now as this is tho strong
and permanent feeling on the part
of the gnat mass of sensible Americans and Englishmen tho mission of
Sir George Campbell, Mr, Stewart,
and Mr, Creamer, whose colleagues
have returned to England, is most
timely and itasonable, Its object
is to secure what we all wish to have
secured—a settlement by arbitration of all differences between tho
countries. This purpose they would
effeot by a treaty providing for suoh
settlement, which they hope may be
speedily negotiated. Another great
meeting is contemplated in Philadelphia, and we shall take duo note
of the progress of the good work. - -

TEBKIBLE REVELATIONS.
Montreal, Deo. 13.' — Constable
Plant waa arrested yesterday as an
accomplice in detective cases. Two
additional charges of burglary were
laid against Detective Nagle. Evidence has been obtained pointing to
the prisoners having perpetrated a
robbery of $2,500 from the Grand
Trunk paymaster 8 years ago, and
suspioion rests against them for the
mysterious disappearance of L. C.
Rose, the wholesale clothier, who hss
not been seen since the 17th of last
mouth, when he was in a house frequented by the prisoners. At the
time Rose had nearly $1000 in his
possession. Detective Flynn, of the
Grand Trunk, says thut most astonishing revelations are yet to he brought
out and that it will be proven that
a coterie of criminals were in league
with members of the police and even
•higher officials in tile robbery of 815,-
000 worth of diamonds from Melvin
Smith's house. The abduction of his
child and even cases of murder are
laid at tho door of tho arrested detectives.
TriTER   ON   TUB FISHERIES QUESTION.
Chicaoo, Deo. 13.—Sir Charles
Tuppor, Canadian minister of finance
and representative on the joint fisheries commission, has arrived hero
from Washington ou his may to Winnipeg. Be inclines to the belief that
thero is little loft now of the feeling of
irritation that inspired tho non-intercourse and retaliation movement last
winter and entertains tho hope that
tho more tranquil condition of publio
sentiment now prevailing on this side
of the lino and the often expressed
willingness of Canada to make any fair
and reasonable concession may enable
the commissioners to bring their labors
to a satisfactory close and secure for
the result the approval of the treaty
making authorities.
Peter Kicffer, Buffalo, saysr "1 was
badly bitten by a horse a few days ago,
and was induced by a friend, who witnessed tho occurrence, to try Dr, Thomas' Eclectric Oil. It relieved the pain
almost immediately, and iu four days
tho wound was completely healed. Nothing can bo better for fresh wounds."
See that you get the genuine Dr. Thomas'

Tncsdar Evenlni, Dec. 13, issi.
Christmas foils oh Sunday this
year, and somo of our cotemporaries
are leariiedly wondering whether
Saturday or Monday should bo kept
as Christinas holiday, or whether
there will be nny holiday at all.
The uuiversnl practice in this country has been to observe Monday as
a-holiday when the holiday comes
on Sunday, and wo presume that
practice will not be departed from
in tbe present instance. Some
people whose lives have been filled
with business, and who know nothing of recreation, seem to think that
holidays are an unmitigated nuisance, and ought not to be observed
at all. We have no sympathy with
this sentiment. There are thousands of our fellowmen whose only
chance for recreation lies in tho observance of a holiday, and who hail
with unspeakable satisfaction these
green resting-spots in the desert of
toil and strife. If an engine is run
constantly for months, there conies
a time when it must be stopped for
overhauling and cleaning up: and
how much more must the human
organism require periods of both rest
and recreation. The Sabbath is
given us for rest and the strength;
ening of the mental and moral
powers: let us once in a while take
a secular day when mind and body
shall be freed1 from enforced activity and devote it to physical and
mental recreation. If properly
spent, such days will be written
'down aB gain and not as loss.
A few days ago an item appeared
in this paper, taken from the Colon-
ist, relating to the arrival at Donald of some young girls who had
been brought out from England un-
der contract to take employment in
a saloon. A correspondent of the
Oalgary Tribune, writing from Donald, gives some additional particulars of the affair which take nothing
from its repuisiveness. It is a disgrace to our civilization that such
thing* should be suffered to exist in
thi* country. It is evident that
those girls were entirely deceived by
the agent who engaged them, and
had very little idea of the character
of the place to which they
were coming or the kind of service
they would be expected to perform,
tnd there ought to be some way of
punishing those who aro guilty of
such inexcusable misrepresentation.
It is to be hoped the respectable
people of Donald will see that justice
is done. The character of some of
the railway and mining towns that
have lately sprung up in the interior is bad enough at best, but we
shall be very sorry if there are not
found even in Donald a sufficient
number of respectable people to save
the place from becoming forever disgraced, The law very properly
gives considerably discretionary
power to those who administer it as
to the extent of the penalties to be
imposed, There ii too much disposition, we think, to exercise leniency towards really bad men.
When * roan coolly premeditates and carries out a scheme that
is thoroughly bad, and an offense
against public decency, he ought to
get about as much as the law will
allow. The imposition of heavy
penalties is the only way in which
such men can be brought to respect
tha htw and realise the evil effects
of wickedness.
It is believed that political affairs
in Manitoba are rapidly drifting to
* crisis, Mr. Norquay seems quite
unable to obtain the. confidence of
the people; and notwithstanding his
ability to command a majority in
the house hitherto by virtue of his
being a thorough-going conservative,
thero is reason to believe that even
ths house will no longer give him its
confidence. A demand was made
on the lieutenant-governor lately
uking him to call a meeting of the
legislature for the purpose of rectifying certain matters in which, it is
claimed, the government lias been
guilty of a breach of the law, and it
a now intimated that tbe house will
be called together early next month.
Apparently Norquay will find himself unablo to maintain his position
before the house, and will probably
bs forced to resign. Although
seemingly most sincere and earnest
In his endeavors to secure immediate construction of the Bed River
t*»lfejr Railway, Mr. Norquay had
tlie misfortune to be unable to obtain tither the confidence or synr
pnthy of these who may be regarded
** leaders of public opinion, This
is, perhaps, hot remarkable, for Mr.
Norquay's public career has not been
such u to inspire confidence, and
he hu been merely reaping the re-
wtrdi of hi* inoonsiatendes. Sooner or later the man without prinoi-
pls must give tny before the em-
balTasstnents arrising from his own
orookeduMs. Some of them do
manage to cover up their trans
actions m a* to swaps the advene
verdict until the time eome* for
them to resign voluntarily; but theso

—K Sorquay has played a double
part in connection with the railway
negotiations it is difficult to say, for
it will be extremely difficult for a

Your Children
Ate constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to tbo throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayor's
Cherry Pectoral, promptly adminia-
tcrcd, affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, wo used, during the post winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation tho most efficacious of all the medicines which have
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst, Preceptress, Home for Littlo
Wanderers, Doncastor, Md.
My children have boon peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
nnd any effective remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures tbe complaint.—David G. Storks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Poctoral
tn iny family for many years, and
havo found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to tho lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, Plainvfflo, Mioh,
I find no medicine so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, on Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. It saved the lifo of my
little hoy, only six months old, carrying
him safely through tho worst case ot
Whooping Couch I over saw.—Jane

The last of December we kill pigs for
the year's supply of lard and bacon. Instead of killing threo or four 300-pound
lioR-r excessively fat, as was the former
custom, we kill twice the number of pigs
that will weigh 150 each net, and have
been fed but a few weeks on corn. Instead of putting down a barrel of fat
middlings as my father did, we fill a
three-gallon stone jar, as the only use
wo make of pickled pork is to cook a
small piece with vegetables to season
them. Our pigs are all made into lard
and sausage, except the hams and shoulders, which are trimmed closo and put
into sweet pickle for six weeks, and then
cured with liquid extract of smoke. The
sausage is put into cloth bags three
inches in diameter, and all, except what
we shall use in two or three Weeks, is
treated with the smoke, which will keep
it sweet and good until warm weather.
The shoulders of these pigs are almost as
lean and good as the hams. I like the
new method of curing much better than
smoking, as it does away with the risk of
Are ana thieves in the smoke houso;
for the meat can be hung in the garret
In the house, and insects will not disturb it
To cure tho meat, we sponge the liquid
on it twice, at an interval of a week, and
it is well to make a third application aftor
the weather gets hot in May or early
June. We are just using the last of our
hams at this date (Aug. 1.), and they
have hung all Summer in the wood-house
loft, with no canvassing or protection
from flies or other insects, and have kept
perfectly. This the second year we have
cured our meat in this way, and it has
given excellent satisfaction.
My receipt for sweet pickle for either
hams or beef, is one and a half pounds of
salt and one pound of brown sugar to
each gallon of water. Good sorghum or
New Orleans molasses may be used in
place of sugar, but the weight should be
the same as that of the salt The meat
should be sprinkled or rubbed over with
salt, and allowed to lie a day or two, to
extract the blood, before the pickle is
applied. The pickle should be boiled
and then allowed to cool beforo it Is
poured over the meat
-,♦        Adulterated Milk.
Tho presence of water in milk waa
onco thought to be easily detected by
the lactometer. This instrument showed
the Bpeciflc gravity of the mixture, but
it was found that cream and water were
so nearly of the same specific gravity,
that milk could be skimmed of part of
its cream, and by adding a certain
quantity of water, be brought to the
specific gravity of full milk. There are
in use some simple methods of analyzing milk to detect the presence of added
water, coloring matter, etc,, but the
general tendency now is to make laws,
requiring all milk to contain certain
percentages of solids, made up of fats,
caseine and sugar, ranging in totals from
eleven and a half to thirteen per cent
The former is the Knglish, and the latter
the Boston standard. It has heen found
that milk can be adulterated in the cow
quite as easily as in the can, by obtaining cows that naturally produce large
auantities of poor milk, and by feeding
tern poor, watery food. Under former
laws, if it could be proved that the milk
had not been tampered with since leaving
the cow, it was merchantable no matter
how poor it was.
rattening Early.
There are advantages and disadvantages in beginning the fattening' of swine
or other animals early in tho fall. If the
process is not begun until late it must be
inirriod Into tho oxtrwmn cold weather,
when a considerable percentage of the
looil is required to produce bodily heat
By fattening the animal earlier, the percentage of food required for bodily heat
is reduced. During severe weather the
appetite of the animal is lees vigorous
and its digestion leas nearly complete,
due to the effect of the weather upon its
body in general. Aa the profit is increased by rapid fattening and good digestion, we increase the profit by fattening while the weather is mild. Also, tho
Work of attending to the animals can be
more economically done in mild than in
severe weather. But on the other hand,
there is greater risk of disease, especially
anrong swine, by fattening in Warm
weather. This, however, is not great
when the animals are given a variety of
wholesome food, pure drink, and clean
Quarters, and these produce the cheapest
ttesh as well.
treed ot salt
All kinds oi, itock need salt, says an
authority, but It la especially'necessary
for milch cows, and It is important that
it be given regularly. If left where they
can get it under shelter, they will only
eat what they need, a little almost dally
to supply, the small percentage of salt
found in milk. As long as a calf gets
milk aa even a part of ita diet it has no
craving for salt, and probably does not
need any. Regularity in salting cows
increases the flow of milk, but if obliged
to eat more than they need by having
salt mixed with food, there will be at first
an increase in milk production, followed
quickly by a decrease, and often seriour
injury to tho cow.
Working of Stud Hone*.
There are not many ownersof valuable
■tud horses who care to run the risk ol
accidents which might arise from working them, causing a blemish of some sort
"wt would materially affect the demand
t their fuWre services, Few breeders
.Iter to pnt mares ti;horses having a
blemish, no matter if lt Is caused through
accident There Is no occasion to pamper
.unions during the winter. Exercise is
essential to health, so by all means let
them have plenty of oxercise. Few
entire horses in this country but have
been broken to harness, and those which
have not should be. They can then be
driven a considerable distance each day,
at regular hours In a light rig, to harden
their muscles and aid their digestive
organs,
Cars of Sheep.
On many farms the sheep are regarded
as better able to take can ol themselves
than the other stock, and, consequently,
ire left to pick Up most of their living as
best they can. while lt is true sheep

food without perhaps, showing the effects

Prompt Work,
There is reported to be a big snag
in the river between Sumas and Chilliwhack, which is very dnngcrrius to
navigation. Whv is the snag boat not
sent up to elear it away! Sinco writing the above Mr. Ohisholm, our
member, has succeeded in getting tho
snag-boat ordered out to remove tlie
dangerous snag. It is probable Capt.
Grant will leave to-morrow morning
to proceed with the work. There is a
promptness about this affair that
smacks off business.
TkeV. M.C.A, Koinns.
In consequence of the retirement of
Mr. Turpin, Mr. A. E. Baud has been
appointed general secretary of the Y.

to the reading room, which is open irs

Messrs. Greig and Clow have boon appointed to conduct the religious ox-

supplied with papers and books, and
strangers are cordially invited to call

Onr Dirty Streets.
The city has a gang of men at work
making the crossings passable and raking up some of the surplu, mud. If
the city would put in a few new crossings on Columbia stroet it might be
possible for' ladies to make a crossing
without soiling their skirts or wetting
their feet. If the present counoil wisher; to carry with it, at the expiration
of its term, tho gratitude of a long
suffering and slow to wrath people,
these crossings will be renewed before
tlie end of the year. The disgraceful
condition of Front street also calls for
the attention of the council.
The Bailway Break*
The running of the C. P. B. trains
is still very irregular and uncertain.
An eastern train arrived lost night
about 10 o'clook, bringing delayed
mails; but to-day's Pacific express has
been cancelled. The washout near
Nicomen still prevents the passage of
trains, an * passengers and mails have
to be transferred over the river there
by means of a rope bridge. A large
gang of men are at work constructing
a truss bridge over tbe break, and it
will probably be a week or more bo-
fore the road will be in running order.
At a meeting of the ball committee
last night the secretary reported that
Capt. John Irving, of Victoria, had
tent the committee 70 flags for decorating the ball-room, Capt. Irving
has also promised to bring up the orchestra from Victoria free af any expense to tho committee. The fare
from Victoria has beon reduced to
82.00 for the round trip. Tho work
of decorating will be commenced tonight and everyone who has an eye

A New Project.
There i. considerable talk round
town at present of forming a sealing
company to operate in tho northern
waters. Some of our citizens who are
alive to a good thing don't seem to
relish the fact that vessels are being
tent all the way from Capo Breton to
engage in the fisheries, nnd show more
enterprise in benefitting by our resources than we do ourselves. Oue of
the promoters of this scheme has made
a model of the sort of vessel required
and he is of the opinion that two such
vessels car be built for 810,000.
There is lots of room for making money in the seal fisheries, and Westminster should have enough enterprise to
get up the proposed company.

Bal It's a Pael.
A few days ago we published a
statement of what occurred on board
the str. Princess Louise during a recent trip between Vancouvor and Victoria. In its edition of Saturday the
Vancouver Herald asserts that Capt.
Leech pronounces the Coumiiian'h
statement without foundation, whilo
Purser Smith thinks it extremely unlikely; and it concludes that as the
item contained a "sorious reflection
on Capt. Leech and his officers," tho
Columbian ought to tako it back. Our
information was obtained from a gentleman who was an eye-witness to the
facta stated, and we have no hesitation
in accepting his statement us absolutely correct. There was no reflection
on Capt. Leech, and under the circumstances wo realiy oannot withdraw
anything—even to obligo our saltwater
cotemporary.    ,. *

Olivet HnpllHl Church Anniversary.
Lust ovoniug a fair and appreciative
audience assembled in Olivet Baptist
Church in this oity, to celobrate the
first anniversary of the opening of this
cominodiouB and beautifully furnished
house of worship. A short but interesting, programme culminating in a
spirited discussion of tiio (tgood things"
provided by the ladies of tho congregation in tho lecture room of tho
church, mado the evening pass pleasantly and profitulbily for all. Bev.
Mr. Lomiio, pastor of the church, occupied tlie chair and opened tho meeting with prayer. On tho platform
with him wero Revs. J. B. Kennedy
ofVaucouver; J- H. Whito, Thos.
Scouler, and Thos. Hadden. The reverend gentlomcn, in tho order mentioned addressed the meeting, in varied and felicitous style, congratulating
tho pastor and congregation on their
fast attainments and future pruBpocts.
uterspersed between the addresses
were choruses by tho choir, and tho
following solos: "Child of tho king,"
by Mr. Holden; "Why do summer
roscB fade!" by Miss Holden. Tho
choruses were well rendered, and the
solo by Miss Holden elicited a well
invited encore. Taking part in the
choruses were Misses French, Miss
Mamie De Beck (who also played some
of the accompaniments), and Messrs.
Holden, Kelly, Prentice, Hill and
Cunningham. During the evoning the
chairman laid before the meeting a
short resume of the financial history
and condition of the church, which reflected considerable credit upon the
enterprise and devotedness of its supporters, and ovor 8100 was subscribed
on tho spot to assist in liquidating tho
comparatively small dobt still remaining upon the building.

Deo. 8th. The mail steamer Ancon
arrived last night with a large mail, a
small passenger list nnd very liltle
freight. The weather for the last week
has been clear with fresh gales from
tho north-east.
The U.S. district court has been in
session for the last week, and there
has been considerable excitement in
town on account of tho soveral murder
cases to be tried this term of court.
The trial of the man Fuller, who murdered Archbishop Seghers last winter
on the Yukon, bos beeu going on for
several days. It was given tu the jury
some 48 hours ago and up to the present timo they have uot agreed on a
verdict, but it is understood they report eleven for murder in the first degree and one for manslaughter.
At Juneau it has been very cold for
the last ten days with heavy gales from
the north.
The cold weather has frozen up tho
water used by the Alaska Union Milling and Mining Co. so that they have
had to close dowu work for the present, and the eold weather reduced the
Bupply of water so much that they have
had to start up their largo engine to
1*n the stamp.
It is reported they have struct very
rich ore in one of tlie tunnels of tho
Treadwell mine. Thoy have struck a
large body of ore In Tunnell mine between the Treadwell and Bear's Nest
mino whioh mills 13000 to the ton,
and everybody in the camp is going
wild over the strike. There is almost
150 men wintering on the Yukon, and
there will bo about 500 going in from
here in the spring. Thero is considerable ezoitemont here about the strike
on the Yacatal. There has been some
people around hero this week with
some black sand which assays bb high

there is a very large quantity ot it. and
there are several persons putting for
