The African Danger Circle.
Colonel Long's charge that Stanley's pretense of going to the relief
of Emin Bey is simply a mask to
the real purpose of establishing
Afrioan colonies on behalf of England may or may not be true. It
can make little difierenoe with the
interest arid importance of the move-:
ment that Colonel Long does not
approve it; nor will it surprise any
one if England, following her traditionary custom, should seek to
profit by the energy and enterprise
of one of hor subjects who has the
intelligent courage to connect a section of no man's land with civilization. That which will attract the
admiring notice of the world is the
promptness with which England
goes to the rescue of Englishmen or
English dependents when they call
for aid, be the cost what it may.
Stanley has accepted a mission that
must be attended by the greatest
danger, and there is) something in
the oool heroism of the man that
commands respeot, Emin Bey is,
as Mr, Stanley puts it, "environed
by breadths of unknown territories
populated by savage tribes," and is
in continued, peril of having these
tribes, whom he Iihs greatly harassed,
cirole upon and utterly annihilate
him. He has with him an army of
about 6,000 men, equipped with
Remington's ahd less erSoienturms,
and the object pf the expedition, us
Stanley represents it, is to curry
to Emin the ammunition of which,
ut last accounts, he was greatly in
iiend. It is not intended to rescue
Emin, for it is liy no means certain
that he desires to quit the country.
Indeed ho wrote some time ugo, "I
am too much needed here to quit
ray postj Time is .wanted; but
from the seed I have tried to sow
doubtless good fruit will spring up."
To reach Emin Bey either of two
routes may be traversed, the Zanzibar route and the Congo. The first
is impracticable, because it entails
a march of a thousand miles under
u torrid sun, and means the decimation of the forces if not the defeat
of the expedition. The Congo route
has no suoh difficulties, the journey
being comparatively easy by steamer, food is plentiful, and the men
can be landed on the edge of the
"danger circle" fresh, active, and in
good condition. The region between
the great equatorial lakes, Tanganyika, Victoria Nyunzu, and Albert
Nyanza, is within what Stanley
terms the savage circle, where are
located some of the best fighting
men in Africa, more thau 200,000
of them. It is at this point the
great danger to the expeditiou will
begin, tho power of McWanga and
' Uganda. The latter the son of
Stanley's old friend, MoTesa, ox-
tends over this great tract. Stan
ley hai declined to divulge his plan
of operations after he strikes the
edge of the circlo. It is apparent,
however, that he will rely chiefly
for success upon previsionary precaution and conciliatory measures.
He will go well furnished with beads,
oloth, wire, etc., for traffic with the
various tribes according to their understood preferences, and will be
ruled by diplomacy rather than by
force, well aware of the folly of
fighting when it can be avoided.
Tha full strength of the expedition
will be 1,000 men, of whom eight
besides Stanley will be Englishmen,
th* rest Zanribaris. The estimated
cost is 1100,000. Each porter will
oarry sixty pounds, and the party
will depend for food upon what the
Tillages supply or the guns fetch
down. Mr. Stanley says lie has no
fear of going up to the Stanley Falls
Station, for his personal relations
with Tipoo Fip are extremely
friendly. He thinks that station
was lost by bad management, entirely the result of a refusal to turn
orer a slave girl who had escaped
from the Arabs. This was n humane course, but very bad policy,
the consequence of whicli was fire
and desolation und the opening of
a sore that wus haulm;, if the
expedition is successful Emin Boy
will be reinforced for a long stay, if
he ii not disposed to oome out of the
oircle, and Stanley will bring away
with him the fifty women and children of the Cario Arabs who are
with Emin. There are also accumulations of ivory to be thought of.
England will doubtless be welcome
to whatever physical advantage sho
may gain from Stanley's hazardous
pilgrimage. — Chicaj/o In'er-Oeean.

The Two Candidates.
When Mr. Ohisholm's address to
the electors appeared we took occasion to say that it contained nothing
with which we eould find fault, but
that it should hare contained some
things lor whioh we lookod in vain.
One of these omissions is the question of temperance and moral reform, and another is the Chinese
question. Mr. Ohisholm's silence on
both these questions springs from
the motive of self-interest. The reforms whioh he promises to support
in his address are such as any member would necessarily support if he
proposed at all to represent the distriot, They are in the direction of
general progress and development,
and touch the interests of no one.
But where Mr. Ohisholm's interests
come into collision with the public
interest, he remains silent. It is
in the public interest, undoubtedly,
that something should be done to
mitigate or remove the grievance
arising from the presence of such
large numbers of Ohinese in the
"province. But Mr. Chisholm has an
interest in the canning business, and
the canners find it cheaper to engage
Chinamen than white men, and because liis personal interest comes
into collision with the public interest in this matter Mr. Chisholm remains silent on the Chinese question, and we need not look to him
for any reform in that direction. It
is'true of him, as it is unfortunately
true of a great many men, that
Where the treasure is there the heart
will be. Again, it will be admitted
by every person in the district,
whose personal interest does not prevent the admission, that there ought
to be a radical reform in tho laws
regulating the liquor trallic. Mr.
Chisholm has made a great deal of
money by selling whiskey over the
counter of his saloon in this city,
and ha is not apt to concern himself now any mora than he ever did
ts to whether the results of the
traffic upon which he grew wealthy
have been good or bad. He represents tha saloon interest, and does
not, because he dare not, pretend
that ht will give his influence as
representative against that pernicious business. In his speech at
the' nomination he dismissed this
question by saying that in his opinion the time for prohibition had not
come because we could not afford to
do without the revenue now derived
from the manufacture and sale of
intoxicating liquors. The same
principle would lead Mr. Chisholm
to resist any restriction on the
opium traffic, or. any. other traffic
tluffu^AnyrnlCn'sxoaiesand souls,
because wa couldn't lose the revenue!
Tht same principle carried out would
make it the fluty of all statesmen
to encourage the extension and development of the degrading traffic
because in this way they would be
increasing the public revenue. If
the principle were carried into pri
vate business, it would lead to the
most horrible results, and the under
taker would be found scattering
about the seeds of disease because
every victim of death would mean
another fee for himself. We are
not sure that it would be wise at
tht present time to pass a prohibitory law in this provinoe, but we
are quite sure the regulations under
which the liquor traffic is being carried on need material revision. For
anything in this direction we need
not look to Mr. Chisholm, any more
than we maylook to him for relief
from the Chinese grievance. It is
'not hit interest to touch either of
these questions, and he evidently
does not. mean to go in the fuce of
hit own interest Turning to Mr.
Trapp's address, we find that lie
deals with both the subjects omitted
by' Mr. Chisholm, and we are glad
to find him in accord with what we
believe the publio interest to be. On
tht Ohinese question lie says: "I
consider it an unmixed evil. I
deem it of vital importance that our
legislatures, both federal and provincial, should do their utmost to
. discourage this traffic, and at the
same time um all legal means within their powtr to get rid of those
Ohinamen who are already amongst
«•.'•' This, we art sure, is the opin
. idri- of at least three-fourths of the
people of thit district. But it is
not tht opinion of Mr. Chisholm, or
if "it it, hit self interest will not permit' him to say so. It is of great
importance that we should send to
tha house of commons a representative whose sympathies are heartily
in favor of measures for tha mitigation of tht Chinese evil, and whose
ptraonal interests do not interfere
witli hit duty to the public in that
rarptct In Mr. Trapp wt seem to
'Iti** inch a person, while in Mr.
Chisholm wt have not. On the sub-
jtot 'of the liquor traffic Mr, Trapp
Sfcjlis' "Upon thit question I feel
.'tnjrJr.'-Tnnnly tnd sympathize most
.'httjlily with all those who are aux-
! louK.to (Jo away with the evils oaused
' by tht liquor traffic, and shall (if
eUeiid) fit* my btnMy support to
tan Djlaturtt that may be introduced
to advan'oe thit vtry datirable ob-
'j&t*'.'"* Ii Mr. *ft»J>P l» tlnoerein
thit (tnd wt h*rt no reaton to question Mt tstn-ts-Of) kit attitude on
the temperance question is all that
could be asked by any temperance
reformer. On most other pouts the
two candidates are agreed: on these
two points, however, they seem to
differ widely both in opinion and
interest, and the difference is sufficiently conspicuous to form a substantial reason why the ono should
be rejected by the peoplo of this district, and the other made our rep
resentative.

New Westminster District,
GENTLEMENs-I lmvo already un-
noucL'd mysi-'lf ns a unndlditto for tin-- seat
mado vacant l-v lliu death of our Into ro-
jircsoiiifltive, ninl ns no election has taken
plncti to lill that vacancy, [ now oiler myself nt this, the Goneral Election,
As it In my intention to visit and hold
public meetings In every settlement of
the district beforo election day, I Will
merely In tills address refer to tlio differ*
cut .subject** Hint aro vital to our interests,
ns n district nud province, wliich will he
discussed al length on the puhllc platform,
when] hope ali aspirants for the honor
of representing you in tho Commons will
he present and take part In the discussion,
of which due notice will be given
Tho following are some ofthe most Important questions, that will have my serious consideration:
The Improvement of Ibe Navigation et
rrast-r Hlver*—Xlje New Westminster
Hoard or Trade have, with tho assistance
of our lute representative, been successful
In obtaining a small appropriation for
tills purpose, which hns been expended
the past fall; und It will he tho duty of
your representative to secure such annual
giants us will suftlco to complete this lm*
port nn t work, which will enable ships of
the heaviest draught to navigate the Fraser river at all stages of the tide, and nil
seasons of the yenr.
HquntferV (Inlm*.—With reference to
this matter there has been gross neglect
on the pnrt of tho Dominion Government,
nnd I am of ttio opinion that thoso sot*
tiers who located their land under instructions from what ls known ns Mr.
Trutcli's pamphlet, should secure the
title thereto froe of chargo—and the fact
tliat settlers have been unable to secure
their titles has acted very detrimentally
to the Interests of the province generally,
und (If eloeted) I will be unceasing tn my
efibrts to secure the adjustment of evory
claim In the district.
Hnll wny Month.--Another very Important mutter ln connection with our dlstrlet is railway connection with our neighbors south of the line. Several charters
io connect this city nud district with the
American system of railways hnve been
granted by our local legislature, but wero
unfortunately disallowed by the Dominion Government (doubtless through the
iiilluetice of the (.', P. H.) Tlie position
hitherto held by t lie Dominion House Is
now untenable, and the monopoly clause
of the C. P. H. will huvo to be dono away
with. Should this be dono there ls no
reason why railway construction should
not commence ln the nour future, ns our
American cousins are ready und willing
tocomiwonee work us soon as tlie way is
open, I need only say Hint I shall uso my
hest. endeavors to obtain said railway connection uud the abolition nf the monopoly elnuse. 	
Hnllwny Grievances.—Tho c. P. It. hnvo
maintained excessive rates for local trilfltc
In this province and to points as far cast
us Wlnulpcg. Tills is not as It should be,
and Is one of the reasons why that great
corporation should bo taught that it Is not
the only power in tin* land, but that It
must ho made tmbsf-rvlont lo the Interests
of the people.
Ti'h-grtiph* nud Utilhv.ij*.-I am of the
opinion that nil telegraphs and railways
should ho owned uud operated by the
government In the IntorostHOf the people,
us Is partially the caso in England, Geir*
munvandelsowlK'rcandsliali (If elected)
do all I canto bring about tliis very desirable state of thine-.
Tbe M«IU.—I shall use my best efforts
to liavo all settlements <ni the soulh side
of the river supplied rognlarly with thoir
mulls from Liuliier'.s Ltuidlng liy wuy of
Iho Grand Trunk road toC'lillllwliaekand
any oilier places not already supplied with
mall aceouimodatlou.
Tbe Teuiperamie l|ncsilon.-Upon this
question J reel yery warmly and sympathize most heartily with all thoscwhoaro
anxious to do nwny wiili the evils caused
bv tlio llnuortrnfllound shall (if elected)
give iny heartv support to any measures
Hint mav he introduced to advance this
veiy desirable object.
Tbe Chine**- attention,—With regard to
to this question, I consider it an un mixed
evil, yet. itl the sumo time one ot the hard-
problems Uml this nation lias to deal
with. I deem 11 of vltul Importance that
our Legislatures, holli Federal and Provincial, should do tlitilriumnst lodiseour*
nge this trallic, and nt tlie same time use
nil login means lu their power IO get rid of
those Chinamen whoarc already iimongst
The last, question thut I wish to bring be*
fore you is thai of Independence. I uga n
reiterate tho statement made by myself in
the papers—
''In Polities, I nm nnd nil! be llier*
mutiny IiiiH-im-iiiIciiI."
.Several of tbe 11.0. pnpeis havo'taken
up this statement and havo suld n great
many uncomplimentary t nines concerning ine, such as " being on tlie feuce," " a
Grit in disguise," and so forth. I thereforo
deem it necessary to explain whnt I menu
by being IhoroiiKlily Independent. Icon*
shier any member sent to Ottawa from this
Provin. -o pledged td supportany particular
parly 1ms allowed himself to bo fettered.
The greatest- ovils whioh threaten the usefulness of tho governments of the United
States and Canada spring from party politics, und In thc United Hiatus ut tho last
Cresidential election u number of tho
est men of both parties voted Independently, and tor what they considered the
best Interests of tho country regardless of
party.
As an Independent I ahull endeavor to
voto and aot (if elected), first, In tho Inter*
tub of my constituents; secondly, Irt tho
interests of the province, nnd lastly for
the general good of tho Dominion, pledging myself neither to Grit nor Tory, but
clnlmlng the right as a free born Hritlsh
Hubject to use my Influence nnd vote on
tho side whore I consider your Interests
nnd tho Interests of the nation He.
I tako this opportunity of soliciting the
vote and influence of all, und while I shall
fool vory much honored if you elect me as
your representative, 1 trust thai Hmo will
prove i hat your confidence has not been
misplaced,

To the Electors ofthe Electornl District of New Westminster.
GENTLEMEN:—Shortly ufter tho lamented dtnth of our lato Representative,
Mr. Homer, I was Solicited by a number
pf my friends, to allow myself to be nominated as a Candidate for the Uepresenta*
tion of the District of Now Westminster In
tho House of Commons of Canada. Tho
fiei'soual solicitation of friends, wassliort-
y followed by requisitions so numerously
signed, by prominent and Inllucnial Electors of the City and District, tlmt I felt It
to be my duty to plnco my services at their
disposal. It is not therefore. Gentlemen,
ns u self-nominated candidate, that I ask
for your support, but I do so In response to
the request of over four hundred of your
number.
To many of you, Gentlemen, who havo
known me for a long time, lt is unnecessary for me to say, that I am perfectly
familiar with the great and varied resources of this Provinoe. My knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
Commercial advantages has been derived
from actual experience, nnd will (If elected) enable me to placo prominently beforo Parliament, the great resources of
this Province, nud the means necessary
to bu employed to nld In their further
development.
It is impossible, Gentlemen, ln an address such as this to do more than allude
to some of tho quostlons of Interest and
Importance to you, whieh as your representative, I would consider it to bo my
duty to bring to the notico of Parliament.
I will, however, enumerate a few matters
of great Importance to us all, ln regard to
which lt wilt bo my earnest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation.
I will endeavour to have removed from
tho mouth of our noble River, every Impediment to its free navigation, and huvo
necessary lighthouses erected.
I will endeavor to secure to settlers and
squatters an immediate titlo to their
lands. This I consider to bo a matter not
only of justico, but ulso of expediency.
Heretofore great Injustice hns been done
ton valuable mid deserving elass of our
population, tn whom, had Justice been
done and facilities afforded for acquiring
homesteads, the results of their Industry
would, ore this, have dono muoh to devel
op tlio agricultural capabilities of this line
district.
I um aware, Gentlemen, that tho num-
bci of representatives to which eaeh province of the Dominion Is entitled is li .sod
upon population,yet I believe that, <>>-ing
lo exceptional circumstances, such us the
fact that this provinoe contributes to tho
roTcntic of the Dominion n much larger
percentage, according* to population, than
any of tiio other provinces; and also to
the fact that large centres of population
arc rapidly being formed In this district-
that It is entitled to a. larger representation In the purl lain cut of Hie Dominion,
nnd wlileli as a mailer of Justice I will endeavor lu obtain.
1 will also endeavour to obtain for tho
residents of this Dlslrlet hetter postal
facilities, to which they are Justly entitled.
1 will use my Iii*-'.! cttorls to secure eqult-
oblo rales on all railway ulltl (olograph
Hues, and to liave I he sumo llxed by luw.
The interests of Hritlsh Columblu demand that every impediment in the way
of constructing railways to our Southern
boundary and other portions of this dis*
trlil be remoVt'd to aid in the development of our resources, 1 will endeavor to
have tills accomplished, und also to obtain aid for the construction Of (tonals nnd
the improvement of navigable streams.
I will also consider it my duty to render
all possible aid to any legislation which
seeks to simplify and nnder less costly
the administration of justice, especially
us between Individuals and corporations,
My 'political platform is, in the first
place, Ibe interest of itrltisii Columbia,
which ,* believe cun bo best served by my
giving an Independent support to the
present government, which has not In tho
past lieen unmindful of tlio interests
of Uritish Colnmbia, and to whom we
arc indebted for the early completion
of tho railway, whieh hns brought
us Into communication Willi the Eastern
Provinces und Europe, and through
lhe agency of which, we will ln the
noar future, bo plnced In direct communication with Australia,China,Japan,
and tho Groat Eastern Empire, which
must provo to bo of Incalculable value to
this province, and to this district lu particular.
In conclusion,inenllonicii, T havo only
to say, thut I am prompted by a sincere
desire to benefit ibis district and to aid In
promoting its varied Interests, and 1 ask
your support only upon theso grounds.
It Is my Intention tosoonsmnny of you
previous to tho election as time and circumstances will admit of In the meantime.
I remain, Gentlemen,
Yours very trul

A Gioantic Evil.—After detailing
the enormous sums 'expended on intoxicating liquors in New York and
Brooklyn, the New York Independent
odds: The drink bill nf this nation is
more than {2,000,000 a day for every
day in the year. This enormous annual expenditure for intoxicating liquors is worse than wasted sinco the
consumption of those liquors brings
upon the country a long train of
crimes and miseries, and adds greatly
to the other expenses of society. The
drinking usages of the American poople, as shown by the quantity of liquor
annually consumed, constitute far the
most serious evil in tho whole land.
Who, upon looking at the figures and
tho facta, will say that a temperance
reform is not among the very first necessities of our times, and also one of
the imperative dutios of patriotism
nnd philanthropy! Tho pulpit and
tho press ought to speak in thunder
tones, and. do their utmost to arouse
the public conscience to n proper realisation of this monster ovil. The task
of banishing this evil from the land is
a Herculean one, nnd this is a conclusive reason why all good men should
combine their forces and net together
to break down tho rum power in this
country. The friends of temperance
should not fight against each other,
but should fight the common foe.

VERDI'S NEW OPERA A SUCCESS.
All musical Europe is exoited by the
production of Verdi's new opera
"OtelhV'at the Teatro alia Soala,
Milan, Italy, A splendid audience attended tho first representation. The
production nf the new opera is the
more interesting as a current event in
thst " Otello" i. a vigoruu. protest
against Wagner and a return to the
simple purity of Italian opera in ita
best school.
Giuseppi Verdi, the leading living
Italian anmpi'ssr, was born in 1814, in
the duchy of Parma, where hia father
wus nn innkeeper. Ho reoeived his
musical education at Milan. In 1839
his fint work, "Obirtu di San Boni
fnp.ii'," wns prnduced in the scale of
that city. Other works of tho omioent
man nin " Erunni," " Masnadieri,"
" Ln Tr.ivinti," "II Trovatore,"
" Montezuma," and "Aida." Verdi
regard. '' Otello," which is probably
his last, as his greatest work. The
libretto, which follows Shak.pere's
tragedy a. closely as possible, is from
Ihe pen of Buito.

A Bonding Society.
Editor Columbian.—With your permission I desire, being requested by a
few persons, to direct the attention of
the publio to an Institution which, if
established in our midst, would, I think,
prove a great blessing to tbe city. As
there Is now quite an immigration to this
province and city and it is likely to continue, and u the house accommodation
is very limited, a building society should
immediately be established for the purpose of building houses for those who
may oome, and also for many already in
the city who are desirous of huving homes
of their owu, but are unable to build
through lack of funds. If wo desire tho
city to become what it ought to be, a
greater publio spirit must be exercised;
and our earnest efforts should be pat
forth at ouce, as quito au effort is being
made at present by rival cities of this
province to attract immigration, aud lt
would be a pity if we should lose our
share through want of enterprise. You
directed the attention of our council the
other day to the importance of borrowing
and spending money for publio improvements, .o that strangers would b - favorably impressed with the surrounding,
and thereby influenced to become citizens. You did well to do so, and I
think the counoil will act oh your sug-
Eestion; but I think an institution, simi-
ir to the one proposed, established for
the purpose of building, would be a pub*
Ho benefaction. There is, I understand,
a flourishing on? in Victoria, and another
In the new city on the Inlet; end, in fact,
iu every large city you will find a Building Society, and the beautiful, growing,
Boyal city should not bo without one.
It would not only help those of limited
means, but it would build up the city,
enhance the valuo of property, and enrich tbe present pronerty.holJnrs, so that
it would benefit all around. I know of
a few persons in our midst very desirous
of having an institution of this character
established, but it would not lie wise to
organize unless a largo number of our
citizens are willing to support it. If
such a desire bo general, and if any of
your readers are in a position to know
and will communicate with you, I will
be willing to give an outline of what I
consider the best aud most heneficiul
mode of conducting such nn institution.

Whitk BitoszB Monuments.— White
Bronzo is a comparatively uew substance,
and has come into largo use, rapidly, for
special purposes hi this country. Ii |ias
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some lime established nt
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, end St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has bam found that
the material will stand exposure for an
Indefinite period—it 'is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, Band being blown against tlio
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but does not adhere to it, A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronzo is indistrnctiblo by
the elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot'ponetrato it, although tho film is so thin as to bn immeasurable. No corrosion, it is nlfirmed,
can take place.— Button Journal of Commerce, Chns. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze

Halifax, N.8.. special says: The nominations of candidates for thd Canadian
commons, whioh took place yesterday,
was the occasion of largo gatherings
in shire towns in Nova Scotia. The
overshadowing feature of the day was
the nomination of liberals and repeaters who are pledged to do tlieir utmost
to secure the separation of this province from Canada. In 17 out of 18
coanttes in Nova Scotia, liberal candidates ara in full accord on secession
raaVNtents. As .in the provincial
election, ef last June the secessionists
wfH undoubtedly score a tremendous
triumph snd the representation of
Nova Scotia in the next Dominion
parliament, numbering altogether 21,
will be composed almost entirely of
opponents ef the union. At the nominating proceedings throughout the
country Cedey, liberal candidate, delivered speeches, denouncing confederation as an accursed yoke which tho
people of Nova Scotia would uo longer
endure, and predicting tho country's

DmvEa, Feb. 17.—A light windstorm set in over the entire western
portion of Colorado at 10 o'clock lost
night Its velocity steadily increased
until 4 o'clook this Homing .when tho
gale reached 10 miles per hour and
continued till 2 o'clock this afternoon.
In Denver many buildings were unroofed, smoke-stacks, telephone and
telegraph poles leveled to the ground
and plate-glass windows broken, causing damages of several thousand dollan. , Ootside Denver the casualties
nftsttsji are considerably greater than
in tie city. On the Denver nnd Rio
Grande railway, four miles north of
Colorado Springs, every coach of the
north-bound Salt Lake express, consisting of two sleepers, two passengor
coaches, baggage and mail car, were
blown from the track about 3 o'clock
this morning and the mail cor with
contents destroyed by lire. Had the
accident happened while the train was
un the embankment a short way
ahead, the loss of life would have been
great, hutfortunatoly the ground was
perfectly level and no one was injured.
A freight train bf 20 cars side-tracked
near by, waiting for the express to
pass, was also derailed by wind and the
cars badly damaged. A passenger
tnin of 3 coaches on Denver & South
Pacifio mad, which left the Union depot br Morrison at 8 o'clock, was lift-
od torn the track by a terrific blast
and hurled down an 8 foot embankment when about 12 mUes from the
oity. One passenger had his log broken
and several others badly bruised.
Near Come, on tho same road, the
Leadville express was blown over a
bridge and nearly all the passengers
and train men severely wounded and
coaches badly wrecked.

Apaches have become dissatisfied nnd
are leaving their reservation in southern New Mexico in large numbers for

little or no influence in tho matter and
two companies of cavalry hnve been
ordered from Fort Lewis to Amago to

Dip thk Irish Discover Ambiiica?
—Abbe Bnsseur de Bourbourg says
in hia "Popol Vuh," a book on the
ancient people of Mexico and Central
America: "There is an abundance of
legends and traditions concerning the
passage of the Irish into America, and
thtir habitual communication with
that continent many centuries before
the time of Columbus, We should
bear in. mind that Ireland was colonised by the Phoenicians. An
Irish saint named Vigils, who
lived in the eighth century, was
accused to Pope Zacharv of having
talked heresies on the subject of tho
Antipodal. At fint he wrote to tlie
Pope in reply to the charge, but afterward went to Some in person to justify himself, and then proved to the
Pope that the Irish had been accustomed to communicate with a transatlantic
world."—Pittsburg Dispatch.

A Deadly Vessel.
The American navy department will
complete early this week lhe drawing
of a contract with the Pneumatic Dynamite dun company, of New Vork,
for the construction of u dynamite
steel cruiser, to bo completed by Juno
1. If this vessel is nil that ls claimed
for it, then tho harbor of Now Yoilt
will be safe from uny foremn Dent.
The work ou this vessel will ho hastened on account of possible complications between this country and England. Congress authorized thu con-
struotion of this vessel last year, but
very little has been said about it, and
the fact that the department has completed the arrangements for the building is not generally known.
The vessel is to carry threo dynamite guns, each cayahlo of throwing
with accurasy 200 pounds of dynamite
a distance uf one mile. The contract
provides that oach gun shall be capable of boing discharged onco in tno
minutes. Those are to be guns of ten
and one-half inch calibre. The company has promised to make them
twelve inches. If the guns are mado
of that capacity they will be capable
of throwing 400 pounds of dynamite,
which would be sufficient to blow op
the largest vessel known to any modern navy. The contract specifies that
the vessel shall have a capacity of 20
knots an hour, whioh means 23 miles
of speed. There are very few vessels
of great capacity capable of making
any suoh speed. None of the heavy
armored vessels of modern times will
be capable of running away from this
new cruiser. She is to be 230 feet
long, 20 feet breadth of beam, with
71 feet draught and 3,200 horse
puwer.
The government contracts to pay
for her 8360,000. The company has
given bonds to carry out this contract.
If the vessel does not reach the speed
named she will not bo accepted. The
contract alao specifies that these guns
are to be fired with safety and accuracy at objects one mile distant as another condition of acceptance. The
company is confident it will be ablo to
fulfil the rigid letter of the contract.
The plan of tho boat has been favorably reported ou by a uaval board and
by the secretary of the navy. Although the contract was made with
the Pneumatic Dynamito Gun Company, the boat will be constructed by
the Cramps, of Philadelphia. Naval
oflicers think this vessel will revolutionise tho naval system of the world.
If the experiment of her construction
is successful modern navies will be
rendered useless. A fow such vessels
would protect our coast against the
combined navies of tho world.
Tallest Nan or Modern Times.
There appeared at the London Pavilion last evening (Jan. 10th) for the
firat time, the tallest man whose
height has been recorded in modern
times.
The now giant is au Austrian named
Winkelmeior, and his height is 8 feet
0 inches, which is over one foot more
than that of Chang, the Chinese giant.
Winkelmeior was born at Freidburg,
near Salsberg, upper Austria, in 18G5,
his parents being in an humble station
in life. He is the youngest of a family of five children, none of whom are
of abnormal stature,nor are his psrents
or grandparents unusually tall. His
lingers span two octaves on a piano,
and the stretch of his arm. is enormous,
Ho showed nn development of this
extraordinary growth up to the age of
14, but since then he has besn growing
rapidly, and medical authorities in
Berlin and Paris have expressed the
opinion that h. is likely to increase
till he is 25.
The young man is healthy, strong
and intelligent. Beyond doubt he is
one of the greatest curiosities of tho
day. A huge bed was constructed fur
him in the building of the Pavilion,
which will he his home for sumo lime
to come.— London Standard.

deres, Luna, Peru. Thanks fur good
