On Friday last tho Chicago and
North-Westnrn Bailway Oompiiny
mado a series of experiments with
an airbrake on freight trains. A
stretch of road was selected for the
purpose, with a grade of about
twenty-four feet to the mile, and
nine difibront tests were mada with
entire success. It was found that
it was possible to stop a train 2,-
000 feet in length, weighing 2,000,-
000 pounds, and travelling at the
rate of forty miles an hour, within
500 feet and with very little jolting.
The result of the experiment is interesting not only ta road men but
to the travelling public. The airbrake has lessened the dangers of
collision between passenger trains,
but the latter are as yet liable to be
run into by freight trains, the momentum of which the ordinary
brake is often insufficient to check
in time to avoid collision. The successful application of the sir-brake
to freight trains would be a great
step in advance of present methods.

The truth is there is no "grit"
about our American variety of the
Anarchist. Tha more austere and
determined members of the sect do
not seem to come tb this country, or
else the climate und surroundings
makes them chicken hearted after
they get here. We have apparently no such determined cut-throats
as the Russian Nihilists, who, when
they are caught, instead of whimpering, and whining, and appealing,
and raising points of law, wait
silently and cheerfully for the hangman. When they throw bombs,
they know that they stake their
own lives on the result, and when
they lose, pay the forfeiUjke men.
Spies and Lingg and tlie'rcst ought
to try to imitate them. Nothing
would do more to spread the anarchical creed and make in respectable
in this country than a readiness to
die on the part of the chiefs of the
school. Nothing does more to
discredit anarcy than any display of a
desire on their part to live among
the capitalists and their slaves, and
witness the daily robbery of the
laborer by the employer. A good
anarchist ought to have, in fact, a
certain longing for the gallows, as a
conspicuous place in which to testify his faith in his own hideous
creed.—Eveniny Post.
. Greenland, tho great Arctic island,
about half the size of Australia, is
perhaps the most barren tract of
known land on the face of the earth;
yet it is extremely interesting as
presenting to us the best existing
picture of the condition of tho northern half of Europe, Asia, and
North America in the glacial epoch.
The date of this epoch is not yet
satisfactorily determined. It has
been recently supposed that its
maximum point was about 200,000
years ago, that it lasted for 100,000
years, that the ice-sheet then began
to melt oil' at its southern edge,
that Ureal Britain was clear of it
about 80,000 years ago, and tlmt
some 20,000 years later the present
condition of tbe northern hemisphere was reached. Professor
Frestwich, of Oxford, contends,
however, that these figures are about
four time too large, that the maximum was not more than 50,000
yean ago, and that it is not more
than 20,000 years sinco the front
of the ice-sheet stretched across the
southern counties of England. The
present glacial condition of Greenland has been recently investigated
with some care. The central ice is
probably some 2,000 feet thick. It
covers an elevated table-land, which
slopes away to the sea on all sides,
and from which rise a few rocky
peaks. The coasts are rocky and
precipitous, with valleys and gorges
between the loftier preoipices, down
which the ice-sheet is continually
sliding into the sea at the rate of
about two miles iu a year. Tlio
front of this ice-sheet is from 100 to
500 feet high, and theliuge fragments
which break oil' as it reaches the sea
float away as ice-bergs down tho
Atlantic, while tlio supply is con
stantly kept up by the fall of snow
on the central table-land. During
theglacial epoch'thir'niain ice-capover
Northern Europe cannot have been
less than a mile in thickness.—I'x.
Skin iliHiintres cannot Ire successfully

LAST NIDIIT'8 DESPITCHKS.
IIIH CONUKMNED   T.tl.K
New Yobk, Nov. 2.—Herr Most,
when asked what he thought of the
anarchist decision said: "I am not
surprised. Those follows (meaning
the judges) arc in tlie pay of the monopolies" Most declined to say anything
further. Editor Shevich, tlie Socialist said: "It is possible that the
court had legal grounds for its notion,
but the decision proves that tho .constitutions! rights of the citizons have
practically become a sham and a lie.
I am used to Russian despotism, but
an execution of this kind would be
impossible in Russia. Vera Sassali-
licli, who killed General Trepoft*, was
acquitted by a Russian jury. Here
seven innocent men will hang, not for
what they have done, but for an opinion they have expressed."
HYXAMITEKS AT   WORK.
Loniiiw, Nov. 2.—An attempt was
made this afternoon to blow up the
Carlton Club. The explosion took
place in the basement, and blew out
all the first floor windows and injured
four persons. The Carlton club is in Pall
Mall, and is considered the most
beautiful club house in London. Its
members include most of the members
of the Houses of Lords and Commons.
The streets are filled with excited people, and the police are driving all away
from the ruins. Nothing can yet be
learned as to the cause of the explosion.
BLAKE AS AN AOITATOB.
Dubiet, Nov. 2.—Mr. Blake, ex-
miuister of the Canadian cabinet, in a
speecli at Glen Sharrald, the scene of
of the evictions from the estate of the
Rev. John Delraage, a rich landlord of
County Limerick, said, the evictions
enforced by Delmage were shameful
in overy detail. It waa a burning
shame and humiliation, he said, to find
a man living in luxury while his tenants were in such . misery, such as
should invoke God's curse upon its
author. He earnestly advised his
hearers to combine against the landlords, declaring that they had everything to justify them in that course in
tho tight of God and man.

San Francisco, Nov. 3.—Advices
this morning from Alaska stato the
schooner Grace, an English ship, has
disappeared. Sho was chartered by
the district court to convey the seized
sealskins from Ounalaska to Sitka. It
is feared sho has decamped with her
valuable load worth S100,000. At the
time the Grace was chartered Sitka
harbor was full uf American ships,
the captains of which protested against
tho employinont of u foroign vessel.
A UTILE MORE LIMIT.
San Francisco, Nov. 3. — Win.
Winter, all artist of this city, has
mado n most striking disclosure in tho
Benhnvon mystery. Ita tendency is
to throw light on Dimming, the book
agent's, connection with Dr. Bowers.
Dimming, according to Winter'spositivo
statement, woro diamonds on an evening uot long prior to Benlmyon's
death, nnd his appearance attracted so
much comment that ho retorted in answer to some jocular talk thut ho
oxpected thirteen moro soon and
enough money to buy n sloop. A few
days Inter ho repented to Winter,
according lo tho statement, substantially the same remark. Dimming denies this and ho even denies ho knew
Winter. Tho lattor's testimony is,
however, explicit nnd full ns to details.
It comes with reluctance apparently,
as Winter held it hack as long ns he
could possibly do so from a mistaken
desire not to bu connected with the
ease in any manner. The value of the
information may bo judged from the
fnct thut Dr. Bowers has a largo numbor of diamonds, or what were supposed to bo, but which later wore ascertained to bu pasto and imitation.
Tho theory suggested from Winter's
statement is that Dimming obtained
his diamonds from Dr. Bowers us a
reward for some service actually performed or soon to he performed.

The Victoria Times, whilo professing for political purposes to doubt
the provincial secretary's denial of
the correctness of the report of his
utterance respecting the Southern
Railway, has the honesty to publish the denial itself. Not so with
our local ootemporary. It would
rob him of one of his most delightful grievances if it should come to
be accepted us a fact that the provincial secretary was misrepresented; and he intimates that any one of
his readers who is silly enough to
suppose that the offensive report
was not entirely correct is weak-
minded and a proper object for universal contempt. Our cotemporary
is of opinion that if the provincial
secretary did not say something
that would damage him with his
constituents, he ought to hnve done
so for the purpose of affording Ihe
organ a fresh opportunity of proclaiming its implacable spite, it is
a case iu which the wish is lather
to the thought. It is not true, as
stated by our cotemporary, that the
provincial secretary has never denied the statement in the Ottawa
Free Press. The editor of the 1'ree
Press telegraphed to Mayor Diokin-
son that the statement was denied,
and that telegram was published. If
our cotemporary had a desire to be
just and fair he would havo given
his readers the opportunity of judging whether or not the telegram
contained a sufficient reply by publishing it.. But he did no such
thing. Ho published the garblod
report with singular alacrity, but
refused to mention tbe denial of its
cottecthesa. The Southern Railway
has no better friend than the provincial secretary, and no one knows
that better than the editor of the
Gnanlian.
There is a dreadful state of things
in Victoria. The steamship Parthia
called at (or rather came within
hailing distance of) Victoria on her
inward voyage from Ohina, but she
landed neither mails nor freight!
There were 2 second-class passengers and 13 Ohinamen who wanted
to get off, and were permitted to do
so; but although the assistant postmaster went on board and insisted
that all the mails must go to Victoria
for postoffice for distribution, Oapt.
Webber would not consent, and the
assistant postmaster was obliged to
return empty handed. The Times
howls to the extent of a column.
We have not seen the Colonist yet,
bnt its condition will doubtless be
even worse than that of its evening
cotemporary. It seems that there
was some misunderstanding—somc-
.vJtj    t(__l*._1. Iv    „AA   UUU.-10I.II1AI
that the steamer would call at Esquimalt, as had been arranged, and
discharge whatever freight and mails
end passengers might be found
booked for Victoria or the sound,
and then proceed to her destination,
Vancouver.. Oapt. Webber, agent
tor the steamship line, and Mr.
Brown, passenger and freight agent
for the 0. P. R, had gone to Esquimalt where they were awaiting the
arrival of the steamer. When
boarded by the pilot, however, the
captain said that as he had neither
mails nor freight for Victoria he
saw no reason for calling and proposed to proceed to Vancouver at
onoe. The agents were informed by
telephone that the steamer lay off
Beacon Hill, and came up from
Esquimalt to board her. The health
officer went on board, but wus told
that his services might be dispensed
with, as there was nothing to be
taken off there. Finally, it was
deemed best to let the 15 passengers
go on shore, and the steamer then
headed for Burrard Inlet. Now,
this sort of thing is gall and wormwood for the press of the capital,
whioh has beon for weeks shouting
that Victoria was the terminus of
the Ohina steamship line nnd the
distributing point fnr the mails. It
is only a few days ago that tho
Colonist contained nn elaborate argument to prove that the telegram
announcing that the Ohina mails
would be distributed nt Vancouver
really meant Victoria, because Victoria was identical with Vancouver
in the minds of the British authorities. After such things tho conduct
of the Parthia is most inexcusably
shabby. If it had no passengers or
freight (or Viotoria really, the captain might have permitted some of
the passengers and freight for other
destinations to be taken off and Ire
put on again. This would havo been
a pretense of calling and would
have been sufficient ground upon
whieh to perpetuate the delightful
delusion that Victoria is the terminus of (he Ohina linel If only the
ateamer had entered at Victoria
custom house, it would have been
something, but the steamer has left
the people of the capital absolutely
without a peg upon which to hung
a testimonial to themselves, The
Timet, says it is. just too awfully
awful for anything, and that something will certainly bunt somewhere
if somebody doesn't get up and stop
this trifling with the Sacred inter
etU.ot "British (Victoria) Columbia!

Generally the eye lirst rests upon one
it tho numerous beggars, who are nl-
rvaj's ut banil, muttering their words
of jirniso lo tho donor of a penny, or
their (rumen to the unheeding passenger.
Tho majority aro blind, or protend to bo
so. and each one has his preferred spot,
where lu sits iu his rags, perfectly oblivious to nil hut his own wants. Others
are hideously maimed and the offensive
gut is always hold up to view in the
ope of uxnilrg.pity. These are mostly men. Tlu \. 11 in and children havo
their beaten mil*, over which they fol-
loir people and implore alms. They
ioem to go no further, and often by the
smphatic repetition of "hiddy git" we
leldom see them rewarded, except by
Turkish subjects, nnd it is said thai thoy
give freely, as tho Koran requires it of
them. They are particularly generouB
on all days of special religious observance. A t such times theso beggars con-
gregnt) in the most attractive places,
and doulitloss make Urge sums. We
learn that inriiiy of thesj pitiable-looking creatures uro in reality very wed
oil, and only don their poverty lor tho
sake of trade. They have meeting, uud
thero decide wliere to take up their
positions and how to divide thelrspoiw.
The peculiar tread of a mini s heavy
feet excites our 'wonder, and wo look
only to be horritied at seeing a human
being bowed under a load' thut would
make n horsii. groan. I .litem, too, three
or fourof these "liamnls'1 work toc'ethor,
carrying their burdens by mentis of
long polos. Thoy hnvo their restriii!-
ploeu ubout half way across the bridge,
and to us it is a gr.nt relief to see them
there hiiviru a littlo breathing spell,
and what an irrrmenso relief it must be
lo Ilium. I, i.plo hero consider thorn
tv.it riiru-h lniir.- ibon beasts of burden,
and thus th .r life is so much tbe more
pitiable. They dress in a very clumsy
manner in loaWj loos.' clothes and-the

or iiitiry p.-rsoli. Ma.ii locality hns its
iruinpiiiiy oi brrninls, und they all livo
tugt ther oil a i-ouimoji fund and hence
nork into eaeli other's hands. Kor
in-trriiee, we enii not get just one of
them to..i'iiiv'wiiter beeuusn the others
want to c.rrrv it fro.n ai distance and
have us pry them by Ihe load. If we
wish til ii liamnls to work for us they
make it great fuss and want the whole
company to come and bother, for the
wuges are to be divided no matter how
many or how low do the work. They
have one head man who does all the
managing.
They are not allowed to bring their
families from the interior, and they
seem to lose nil their individuality living huddled together so, without any
of tlie eoniiorls or pleasures of a home.
Wu can not imagine harder physical
work than they do, and yet their pay
seems lo be in* tho inverse ratio, for it
is. very little each one gets when a
whole company shares it.   Articles that
are too bulky lor them to handle are
transported on the hacks of horses and
donkeys.   What would we in America
think of seeing bricks, sticks of wood
and even long pieces ol lumber tied
together and carried this way instead ol
ou wagons ? f have seen a donkey so covered with boxes thut tho animal itsell
wss entirely hidden.   Tho venders of
bread, meat,  fruit, etc,  carry  their
wares on their heads or on donkeys, ae-
cor iiijg to Uio quantity they have to
dispose oi.   Their cries can be hoard
almost from one end of the bridge to
the other, but ono must know what
they sell before their utonotono can be
gu ss'd. The most picturesque of these
veiirleis is the Persian, with his long,
lurlined cloak and one shoulder covered
wilh his rags and skins which are always so attractive.

flie King or stum's Anuuoim.
A London correspondent derives the
following curious facts from the Prince
of Slum, mother to tlio king, now on a
visit to England: Uo gavo us some
curious information about tho King's
Amazons, tho Koynl Guard being composed entirely ot women. This battalion
consists oi lour hundred women, chosen
among the handsomest and most robust
girls iu the country. They receive excellent pay, and tlieir discipline is per-
foet. They are a'dtnitted to serve at the
age of thirteen, and nro placed in the
army of reserve at twontv-llvo. And
from that period they no longer serve
about the king's person, but aro employed to guard the royal palaces ami
crown lands.
On entering tho army the Amasons
make a vow of chastity, from which
there iB no -exemption, unless any ol'
them should attract tho king's attention
and ho iidmitte.l among his legitim..te
wives. Tho king's choice seldom (nils
ou the most beautiful, hut on tho most
skilled in military exercise. Tho costume these women wear is very rich.
Thoir full dress is composed of a white
wollen robe, embroidered with gold.
The cloth is extremely line, and descends as far as the knee. It is covered
with a light coat of mail and a gilt
cuirass. The arms are free, and tliu
bond is covered with a gilt ensquc.
When wearing this dress on state occasions, their only weapon isa lance, which
they handle with wonderful dexterity.
With their undress they are armed with
a musket. The battalion is composed
of four companies, and each company
of one hundred women, commanded hy
a captain of their own sex. Should the
captain die, tho company is drilled
during three days by the king, who appoints the most competent to succeed to
the command.
The King of Siam never undertakes
nny expedition without being accompanied by hiB female guard, nor does he
over hunt, or oven ride, without an escort of tbe same guard, who are devotedly attached to his person, -very individual of the battalion has live ne-
gresses attached to her service, and
having thus no domestic occupation,
she can devote herself exclusively to
the duties of her profession. There is
a parade ground near the city, where
one company is stationed tor two dnys
overy week to exercise themselves in
the uso of the lance, the pistol, and thu
rifle. The king attends once a moiiili
at those exercises, accompanied by irs
brother, who shares, in some degree,
the sovereign power, and distributes
prizes to those most deserving. When
tho death of one of the' parties ensues,
tho deceased receives a magnificent
funeral, and the high priest pronounces
a panegyric, declaring that the deceased,
by her valor, has merited eternal rest
iu tho abode of tho blessed. Tho survivor receives the congratulations of
companions; but, as a measure of discipline, sho is sentenced to jrnsi two
mouths away Irom her company iu
fasting and prayer. The military organization of this battalion is so perieet
that the ontire army endeavois to imitate it.
Marring, From Earliest Tlnics.
The earliest and universal blood relation was in Arabia, as, indeed in ull
primitive societies, kinship through
the mother, the latter being considered
the most sacred trust of evory stock-
group. The oldest marriage system in
Arabia, as elsewhere, was polyandry u'
tho so-called nair, in which tlie worn r<
remained among her own people , it,
lee.-ivud suitors from other irlli.-s,
irlioiii she could choose nnd dismiss a:
will, being on an entirely oqlurl io 'tin.:
wilh her partners and iu win,ni nil in-
i.~uu of such looso marriages beioiigeii
exclusively to the mother's stock. '1 he
husband either remained with his ow.i
km and visited his wife at iutcr-vuU
only or ho joined his wife's stock alto
gellior, being liable, however, to dismissal nt any time.
'ihe transition from female kinship
to that system of male biuship whie.i is
the oiiiy'legitimato one in the time ot
Islam began when nalr polyandry wus
gradually superseded by thnt oi th ■
Tibetan or ba 1 type, in whicli group oi
kinsmen brought a woman from all-
other clan into their own us their common wife, and naturally reduced her
from the position of a sadicu, witii Ihe
free disposition of her favors, to that ul
a ba'uluh, a possessed or captive woman.
It is obvious that this custom must
originally have been established ly
capture in war. and that ba'l mnrrliirjc
by convenant developed at a much lut r
p.-rio'l. Hero again monandry look ly
degrees tho placo of polyandry, the
more powerful or wealthy member of u
clanship being naturally desirous lo
hnve a wifo to himself instead of Blurring her with all his brethren', and
therefore we are fully justiiied in saying
that individual uiaiTiage wits not the
result of line feeling, but of a gross state
of society, and that the more civilized
ideas of conjugal iidolity followed, an I
did not precede, tho new state of
things..,.

In tho yoar 1200 chimneys wero
scarcely known in 1'nglmid, an I one

a manor home, and ouo in lire great
hall of a castle or lord's house, but in
other houses tho amoko found lis way
out as best it could. The writers or thu
fourteenth century seem to hnve considered them as the newest inventions
ofluxury. In tho reign of Henry Vill.

laid to the wall, and the smoke issued
out of the door, roof or win :ow. Tire
houses were walled and plastered over
with day, and all the furniture and
utensils wore of wood."
Kerosene.
The lowest safe point of kerosene n'l
is one hundred degrees; for domestic
use it ought not to be lower tlitm on '
hundred and twenty degrees. Tot-.t
it, put a smnll quantity in n sail -or or
till vessel nnd float it in writer libute I

after which it moves easily. When the
joints, or hinges, of lire body are stiffened
and inflamed by Khouuiatism, they cannot bo moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's SarsapariUa,

condition, and restores llio joints to good

Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, In our

The Calgary Errrcarsloulrils.
Tho correspondent of the Calgary
Herald ill his report of the trip mado
by tho Caltrarians to tho 1'ncitio const
has tbe following to say uncut our city
and tha down-river excursion tendered
the visitors by our oitizons: "After
leaving the Delta mid proceeding op
stream wo enjoyed an excellent view of
that charming little city, perched upon
its sunny hillside, unquestionably the
handsomest oity on our western coast,
destined to be, as it long ainco should
have been, one of the unavoidable
stopping places of all who visit the Pacific coast. A trip lo Victoria or San
Francisco should take in this place
either on the outgoing or return trip,
and the O. P. R. can In no way stimulate ita new foundling, Vancouver,
more than by affording a view of hor
beautiful sister city and tho prominent
publio buildings we visitod the previoua day. On the return to the city
Ooun. Shelton expressed tho thanks nf
our party for the courteoos attention
we received as well as the varied pleasure and information of the trip."
Multitudes or Pics.
The pie social given by the ladies of
the Baptist Church last night was iu
everyway a success. The ohurch,
where the concert was held, was well
filled, but we are sorry to say tho fair
sex outranked the sterner sex by long
odds in numbers. Xt must not be inferred from this that the fair sex are
more fond of pie than the men are, for
judging from the numerous pieces of
pie indulged in by the young men it
was evident they wero able, in the pie-
eating contest, to hold their own
againet treble numbers. Bev. Mr.
Lennie opened the evening's programme with a short speech iu which
he .chiefly dwelt on the usefulness of
women and of woman's proper sphere
in life. The subject did not suffer nt
hiB hands and all the compliments paid
the fairer sex by the rov. gentleman were
certainly deserved. Tho programme
was well chosen and the whole was
carried through to a finish without a
hitch of any sort. After the audience
had sung " God Save tho Queen " an
adjournment was mado to the bnso-
ment to partake of tho refreshments
there provided. The tables ranged
down the room wero covered with pies
of all kinds and discriptions; it would
be hard to wish for nny particular pie
and not have that wish granted. It
must be said the pastry in every caso
was excellent, and if the bakers of
these pies provide similar ones for tho
home table the number cf good house
wives (or daughters) must be exceedingly large in the Royal city. Everyone seemed to eniny themselves and
when 10 o'clock caino all wont home
much the happier fer tlio evening's
entertainment.

Mining News.
A Bit Strike Reported on I'ajUNM'rt-rk.
Clinton Exellcd over 11,
Mr. T, M. Hamilton, of 100-mile*
post, arrived from tho interior yesterday. He reports the strike of an ex-
traordinrtry rich quartz ledge on Cay*
use Creek made by a man nnmed Gould,
and his partner. For a long time past
nuggets of gold has been found, iu
pieces of quartz, in tlmt vicinity,
Oould msde up his mind theio tmifit
be rich ledges thereabouts and prospected the country thoroughly. Ono
day he came across some moss covered
rook, and acrapiuv tlie moss away,
knocked n piece off the rock with his
hammer. The result was surprising,
for on examination thin threads of
native gold were to be Been running
all through tho stmio. To make sure
that there oould bo no mistake a hole
was drilled at hft-nni itithelbrlgannri ihe
borings washed in it g<>M miner's pan,
A line of gold visible to tht? naked oye
was left in the pau nftcr the* washing,
and aa this operation was performed in
the presence of Mr. Dell of Clinton,
there can bo but little doubt as to
genuine wealth oftho ledge. There is
much excitement in Clinton over thin
find and a rush has been made for
Cayuie Creek. The Island Mountain
mine is spoken of vory favorably and
It is yet expected to yield ita owners a
handsome profit on the investment.
Another rich discovery of gold quartz
is reported from Black Jaok Gulch in
Cariboo, but full particulars of it had
not come to hand when Mr. Hamilton
left home. The Horse Fly mine,
which has boon closed down for a long
time ji being opened up by Mr. Hooper, who has unbounded confidence in
its ultimate success. He has now 14
men building a sawmill, nlso a number
of men working on the claim building
wing dams and making other preparations for active operations in the spring,
Mr. Hooper has shipped about 80,000
pounds of machinery, etc.. to his claim
during the past summer, whioh shows
he has every confidence bis mine will
pan out well, There is generul activity in mining circles all through the
interior and the operations next spring
promise to be on a much larger scale
than ever before. Mr. Hamilton will
remain in this city for a few days
visiting some old friends whom ho has
not met for a long time,
