Veueral Christian (.'onftrr.ncr,
PiiiiiDELiiniA, Nov. 8.—At a
meoting hero yosterday of the clergymen and laymon of tliovnrioui: religi-
ousdeiiomina tions to name representatives to attend the general Christian
conference under the aupices of tho
Evangelical Alliance for the United
Btates, to be held in Washington
the first week in December, an explanation wus made of tho purpose
of the .Washington conference by
Rev. Josiah Strong, President of the
Alliance. He said: "Thoughtful
men are convinced that the closing
years of the nineteenth century constitute a momentous crisis in the
history of the nation. The necessity
of planting christian institutions in
the formative west and of strengthening them in the older States, the
duty of overtaking the rapid growth
of our cities with adequate church
provisions, the importance of closing the widening chasm between the
churoh and tlie multitude, and of
bringing the regenerative power of
of the Gospel to bear upon every
character andlife, demand the instant
attention of the christian church
and the full exercise of all its energies. The three things needed in
order that the masses shall be reached are, first, the desiro to
do that work; second, a knowledge
of conditions and needs, and, third,
personal efforts and contact with
people."
Cladslone's Advice.
London, Nov. 14.—Gladstone, replying to the secretary of a London
radical club, writes as follows to-day:
I think you will expect me to meet
your request by an explicit answer,
expressing the best judgment which
while adsent from the spot, I am
able to form on the deplorable disturbance of yesterday. As I understand the matter the home secretary
states yesterday forthe information
of the public that ho intended to
prevent yesterday's meeting in Trafalgar square, and he believed prevention to be within his legal power.
The question is one of great moment
to the inhabitants of London, particularly to those at present unemployed and in circumstances of distress. It will be felt that the state
of the law iu regard to this matter
ought to be promptly tested and ascertained. Until such a decision
ean be had it is the duty of every
oitizen to refrain from all resistance
to the determination ofthe executive
branch of the grovernment which is
clearly entitled to administer the
laws to what it may be advised is
their true construction. Such an
abstinence is, I think, due to the
high character of the peoplo of London for the maintenance of public
order and respect to the law and
mode in which it is applied through
the medium of the admirable police
of tlie metropolis. But I must add
that an appeal to parliament and
the nation of the grave and solemn
issues now raised by the proceedings
of the government in Ireland would
stiller a disastrous prejudice wero
the appeal to be associated in any
manner by those who mako it with
the metropolitan disturbance.' It
is the general opinion that Gladstone's advice not to make a party
issue out of the notion of the author
ities will be followed. In raforenoe
to yesterday's disturbance at Tin
fnlgar square the Telegraph says:
Tho history of the metropolis has
presented few sadder pictures than
that which yesterday's riot presented. The rioters must be speedily
checked or anarchy will spread.
The Chronicle praises the forbear-
tuice of the police and the good work
thoy did, but censures the authorities for provoking a conflict with
the peoplo by tho invasion of a long
cherished public right. Tho Times
hopes that tho rioters who were arrested yesterday and are held in
custody, especially the ring-loiiders
will receive cxomplary treatment
and bo dealt with sternly. "Behind
these," it says, "stand greater criminals, who by means of the press and
in other ways labor to convert the
English Sunday into a carnival of
blood, for which the despicable
brood ought to be shot summarily."
Si'venty-tivo charges were entered
to-day at tho Bow street police court
against the Trafalgar squaro rioters
of yesterday. Most of the prisoners
escaped with a Hne, but some wero
sentenced to four to six months'
imprisonment at hard labor.

THE TOPE'S DISAPPROVAL.
London, Nov. 15.—-Tho rimes says:
" It is reported in Rome tlmt the pope
has expressed bis entire disapproval of
the la wit Bailees and political fanaticism
iu the riots, and has Bent instructions
to the Irish clergy with regard to the
relations .between the landlords and
tenants."

London, Nov. 15.—In referenco to
yesterday's disturbance at Trafalgar
Square, the Telegraph aay^this: "The
history of the metropolis haa presented
few sadder pictures than that which
yesterday's riot presented. The rioters
must be speedily cheeked or anarchy
will spread." The Chronicle, praises
the forbearance of tho police and the
good work they did, bnt censures the
authorities for provoking a conflict
with the people by tho invasion of a
long cherished publio right. The
Times hopes that the rioters who wero
arrested yesterday and are held in
custody, especially the ringleaders,
will receive exemplary treatment and
be dealt with stonily. "Behind those,"
it says, "stand the greater criminals
who by means of the press, and in
other ways, labor to convert the English Sunday into a carnival of blood,
for which the despicable brood ought
to be shot summarily."
Seventy live charges were entered
to-day at the Bow st. pohc court
against the Trafalgar square rioters of
yesterday. Most of tho prisonors os-
caped with a fine, but eome were sentenced to four and six months imprisonment at hard labor.
MR. GLADSTONE  CRITICISED.
London, Nov. 15 —Conservatives
generally regard Mr. Gladstone's viow
of the Trafalgar Square riot, as ex*
pressed in his letter, as altogether paradoxical, in that he encourages tho
wish of the people to resist tlio the action of tho govornment, and praying
English conservatives to submit to such
restrictions as may be offered. He
docs not, of course, say this in plain
language, but they maintain that he
does so by implication. From the Brst
to the lust lino of his communication
they maintain there is justification for
such inferences though it is not apparent to others.
Mr. Bradlaugh has suddenly become
peaceful, and is out in a public statement declaring the story that he had
announced his intention to lead an attempt to hold a meeting in the square
on Sunday to be wholly unfounded,
and pronouncing the published account
of his remarks as n garbled report of
what he really did say. Mrs. Besant,
too, claims to havo been incorrectly reported, and rushes into print with a
letter explaining certain of her alleged
utterances, and repudiating others.
The defiant leaders of the mob are
cooling off rapidly, and it certainly is
hourly becoming more apparent that
there will bu no parado in or near Trafalgar square next Sunday, nor for a
long time to come.
THIS MORNING'S DESPATCHED
A FIENDISH  TRICK.
Columbia, S. C, Nov. 16.—Word
has just reached here that Stephen
Bailey, an old man, and engineer of
the steam mill noar Duckpond, killed

threw her body into tho furnace. Next
morning his wife's bloody garments
were discovered in the engine room,
and tho charred remains of the woman
in the furnace. Bailey was arrested
and made a confession. List flight he
cut his throat with a knife, but is still
living.
KILliKD UY DYNAMITE,
Nashville, Teiin., Nov. 10.—Fivo
negro laborers were killed by a dynamite explosion in a cut ou the extension of tho Nashville A* Florence mil-
road ou Friday. Tho bodies wore
buried under tho debris of tho wreck,
and have only just been rocovercd.
The calamity occurred near Wnylaud
Springs, and was the result of a misunderstanding. The foreman hud sent
his hands away to a place of Bafety,
with orders not to return until ho sent

tomoy Grill noil to-day filed, in the superior court, an information in tho nature of quo warranto against tho Peninsular Loan and Trust and Savings

TWO CHAMPIONS.
Boston, Nov. 16.—The fight between Jack McAuliffe, of Brooklyn,
and Jem Carney, of England, for the
lightweight championship of the world
and $5,000, came to an end long after
daylight this morning. Seventy-four
rounds had been fought, and neither
appearing to have the best of the straggle, the referee declared it a draw. Instantly there were howls of indignation
which resisted in a general fight.
Both men were badly punished when
the referee declared it a draw, but
were able to continue and would hate
done so had not the excitement been
too much for the spectators, and caused tliem to engage in a general row.
In the first rourd McAuliffe planted a
blow under C.rney's chin, which sent
t'io Englishman to the floor. Up to
tho end of the ninth round the battle
sec vied to be going all in McAuliffe's
favor. He fairly rained blows upon
Carney's eyes, jaws and ribs, and the
Briton seemed to have become very
angry, but recovering himself, used
more cautious tactics. At this point
odds of two to one were offered on Me-
AulifTe, who had, so far, shown himself to be in as prime
a condition as his antagonist, notwithstanding his recent illness. Carney
becoming desperate when the twoltn
round opened made a savage rush at
McAuliffe, who met it with a hard
blow on the right eye and followed
with a terrific right-hander on the
bridge of Carney's nose whioh caused
blood to fly. The claim of- first blood
for McAuliffe was then allowed. The
fighting after this was heavy and both
men wero badly punished. At the
end of the twenty-fifth round Mo*
Au)iffe appeared somewhat winded and
Carney's friends claimed the fight,
which was not allowed. From the
twenty-fifth to the forty-second round
Carney had something the best of it.
In the sixty-seodfid round McAuliffe's
loft ear was cut open. The sixty-
eighth round was marked by terrific
exchanges of blows and both fought
like demons and stood their punishment like men of iron. In the sixty-
ninth round Carney butted McAuliffe
in tho breast with his head and forced
him to the floor. McAuliffe's friends
became greatly excited and repeatedly
cried " foul," many of them breaking
into the ring. Quiet was restored and
the fight went on, but the next round
round McAuliffe's friends claimed that
Carney had kicked his antagonist in
the abdomen and sgain claimed a foal.
Great excitement followed and the
claim was not allowed, bitf the same
frightful slugging that had so far
characterized most of tho struggle.
In the seventy-fourth and last round,
after some heavy exchanges the' men
clinched and both fell to the floor with
Carney on top. The friends of both
parties rushed into the ring claiming
the fight for either man and everybody
claiming foul. When the referee could
be heard ho declared that as this was a
fight to finish and neither man had
beon knocked out he could not do
otherwise than postpone the fight to
another time.

Wnmsdar CvwUw. Nov. 16,
To-morrow the people of Cunadu,
from the Atlantic to tho Pacific, uro
asked to unito in a service of thanksgiving for tho mercies of the year.
This thanksgiving dny has come to
he recognized as an established holiday, nnd io observed as such very
generally throughout the Dominion.
It is quite proper that wc, as a
Christian nation, should publicly
acknowledge our allegiance to the
Creator of the universe, and our dependence upon Hira for all good
things. The year now drawing to a
close hns been one of progress and
development throughout the Dominion. Crops in the east have not
beon abundant, but there has boon
no widespread failure, and tho wealth
of the country has increased. Jn
Manitoba and Ihe Northwest tlio
harvest has been exceedingly plentiful, and tho food-producing powers
of that region have been clearly
demonstrated. The people of British Columbia know very littlo experimentally of poverty. This is a
province singularly rich in resources,
and it yields a competency to any
person who is willing to expend an
ordinary amount of energy. The
passing year has been one of extraordinary development in British Columbia. It is the first year of railway operations, and a large part of
the province has felt directly tho
stimulating influence. In the interior, along the railway line.new towns
have sprung up, and tho two terminal cities, on the Fraser and the
inlet,, have made wonderful strides
forward. For this progress wo
ought to be thankful, and we ought
not to neglect to recognize the
source from which prosperity comes.
It has been a year of pence and
plenty, a year of building up and
strengthening. While war and turmoil and famine and pestilence have
been abroad in the world, Canada
has heen. saved from any of these
scourges. Since the government has
set aside a day upon which the people shall be free to give appropiate
thanks for the blessings of the year,
we hope it may be observed by all
as a glad day, when the thoughts
will go out to a review of the situ-.
ation, and we shall give expression
to our gratitude in a practical way
by ministering to the wants of those
upon whom fortune has been less
profuse in her smiles. "He that
giveth to the poor lendeth unto the
Lord," and we have every assurance
that the loan will be repaid with
interest.
The San Franoisco Bulletin thinks
it quite possible that the Panama
canal may be finished after all within the time specified by DoLesseps
—the year 1890. In this evont a
great many wise people will find it
necessary to take back statements
they have made with a great deal
of certainty. The impossibility of
completing this great waterway,
on the plan projected by DcLesseps,
has been over and over again declared by engineers and men of undoubted standing, but as soon as the
publio begin to believe these pre
dietious, DeLesseps jumps up serenely and repeats his promise that
there is no serious obstaclo in tho
way, and that it will certainly be
opened upon a certain date. The
Bulletin thinks that perhaps tlie
opinion of an engineer who has successfully completed one canal, and
has carried another well towards
completion, may be worth a good
deal more than the opinion of a
bushel of engineers who never built
a canal at all. If the work should
really prove successful, it will be the
crowning triumph of ono of tlio
greatest engineers thu world ever
produced. When the Suez canal
was in process of construction, it
was hampered by the same distrust
which now assails the Panama. But,
as everybody knows, the Suez cnnnl
has proved a splendid success, and
is one of the best investments of
modern times. It has lately been
asserted that DeLesseps was by no
means the original projector of this
canal. Away back when ancient
history waB being written, tin; work
of connecting the lied Hint and the
Mediterranean was not only seriously considered, but is believed to have
been actually undertaken and partially executed. It is said to have
been abandoned on account of the
belief that if the wators of the Mediterranean were once admitted to
that, region, the difference of level
would ereate such a rush as to do
serious damage. There is, practically, nothing impossible to modern engineering. The only weak point in
projects of this kind is the lack of
funds. Give an engineer unlimited
resources, ana he oan accomplish almost anything. The shareholders in
the Panama canal have certainly had
many opportunities for oxcreising
their faith in the genius and resources of DeLesseps, and they have
passed through theso crises with unshaken confidence. Without doubt.
the canal .will oost a sum vastly
larger than the original estimate;
but after the expenditure of so muuh
money, it is scarcely possible to suppose that the scheme will he absolutely- abandoned. That would
ineah ruin to hundreds of thousands.
If the sinews of war aro furnished,
it is probable the canul will be ultimately completed.

'Bow to Enjoy a good ulgliti rest.
According to Dr. Granville tho pofrl-
lion Hll'ecte Bleep.
A constrained position generally pro-
TC11I3 repose, whllo a comfortnblo one
woos sleep.
He says:
Lying flat on the back with the limbs
relaxed, would seem toaecuro the greatest amount of rest for the muscular
syrrtrnri.
Vliis is the position assumed in the
1.lost exhausting diseases, and it is grrn-
1 rally hailed as a token of revival wlu'n
tin patient voluntarily turns on tho
ri [0; but there are several disarlvan-
tirrvsin he supine posture which im-
p.i r and einlntrr.isH si ep.
Thus, in weakly »tatos of the hivrrt
nnd blood vessels, nnrl certain mor.iid
riiiirlitions 01 the brain, tho blnod
*iimis to gravitate to the back of tlie
head and to produce troublesome
thuams.
In persons who habitually, in their
work, stoop, then is pro rahly some
rlis:rcss consequent on Btralghteuing
the spino.
Tlioso who have contracted chests,
especially persons wh < nave nn I pleurisy and retain ndli sioin oi tho lungs,
Uo not sli'ep well on the (rack.
Nearly all who are inclined to snore
do so in that position, because tbo soft
palate and uvula hang oh tlie tongue,
and that 0:121m falls bnufc so as to close
the top ef the windpipe.
It is better, therefore, to He on the
aide, and in the absence of special discuses rendering it desirable to lie on
the weak side, so as to leave the healthy
lung free to expand, it is well to use
the right side, because when the body
is thus placed the food gravitates moro
ens. iy out of the stomach into the in-
t siuies, and the weight of the stomach
1.0 » not compress tho upper portion of
tho intestines.
A glance at any plate of the visceral
an rtomy will show how ibis must be.
Mnny persons are deaf-in one ear and
prefer to lie on that particular si le; but,
ii possible, the right Bide should be chosen.
Again, sleeping with the arms thrown
ovor tiie heart is to be depreciated : but
His portion is often assumed during
trici-p, bee ruse circulation is then free
in tbe extremities, and the head and
ii-ck and muscles'of tbe chest nro
r.r.rwn up and fixed by the shoulders,
an I thus the expansion of the thorax is
easy.
Viie chief objection to these positions
nre that they create a tendency to
cramp and cold in the arms, and some
li 111 s seem to cause headaches during
s.eop and dreams.
'1 uese small matters often make or
mar comfort in sleeping.
Our world dollar dates back to 1783,
when a resolution was passed in Con*
. gress which provided that it should bo
the unit of monoy of the United states,
Amrtlier resolution was passed in 1875,
August 6th, providing that it should
weigh ''75.04 grains of pure silver.
The mint was established in 1702
ami was then required to coin silver
10 lars containing 371.25 grains ot pure
» Ivor. This was due to the influence
uf Alexander Hamilton. No dollars
were coined until 1704, ahd then irregular. They are worth now $11)3 each.
In Tilt the coinage of regular dollars
Ir -ijrin. Our coin was an adaptation oi
Iho Spanish milled dollar, a coin very
] ;i .mr wherever the Spaniards trnv-
t.'l. The coin was called "pinsrre,"
1: .Miiini a flat piece of metal; it is syn-
1 uy inis with piaster. It is supposed
I ni tbe Spaniards: took the German
",. lor" and called it by tho name of
•'Jl rstor."
I'he word dollar is entered in Bailey's
1 .glish Dictionary of 1745, and was
11..-il repeatedly by Shakspeare at the
Inhuming ol the Seventeenth Century,
ep dally in Macbeth, ii, 2,62: "Till
trhe disbursed . . . $10,000 to our general use." (See alio the Tempest fl, 1,
1. r. The question Where Shakespeare
found the word dollar Is answered by
tli.s iact that the Haoaeatic towns main-
I riiiiid a great establishment called the
■ I el Yard in London. The Steel Yard
1 .ion bants were mostly Nortli Germans,
who would call the German thaler as it
w s sp.-lt, "dah-ler."  The same mer-
■ hints occasioned the word sterling, an
1 ..reflation of the word "estorflng."
As the Hanseatic trade was particularly
1 rialt on the Baltio and in Hnssiatlio
1 rn rlard coins of the H«ase merchants
v i-■ called esterlings, and sterling came
t r mean something genuine snd desir-
r'rl'. The word dollar is the English
I 1 thaler, the first of which was coined
ni rout 1480, and corresponds quite closc-
I ■ to our present American silver dol-
I vi. The Word thaler moans "coming
rr 1:11 a dale or valley," tho flrst dollars
r- rving been coined in a Bohemian val-
I y called Joschimsthol. Itwasnnder
1 nrles V., the Emperor of Germany,
1. ng of Spain and lord of SpaniBh
America that the German thaler became the coin of th. world.

ftTeare told to keep our eyes ever
opon, but it is often well to keep them
thut. One of the chief causes of nervous disease is the straining of the eyes
nnrl the constant tension of the mind.
When stretched out ln the barber's
chair do not try to read a newspaper,
but close your eyelids under the soothing undulations of the lather brush or
Iho dreamy sensation ot the shampoo
with the dafky's big hands gliding over
your pate. In a railway carriage, instead of staring out of your sockets at
the landscape that is being torn into
shreds before yon, fold your arms, bow
your head and listen to tho whirr ofthe
wheels that make an accompaniment to
Hie wordless song crooning in your
heart.   Again, in tne concert room, in

y or watthing th. beauty of the singer
behind the footlights, shut your eyes
once more and let the music sink into
your soul rflcking it on waves of emotion and wafting it Insensibly Into the

TERMS ui- Ur.^ull'.
Tho Tlmo Allowoil by tho Various Conn-
trios o£ tho World.
Tho following data regarding tho
terms of credit allowed m various countries aro derived irom reports of United
States consuls published by tho Govornment.
It appoars that in Germany tho crodit
system is very widespread, nnrl that the
tune allowed pureliasors to settle their
accounts is generally much longer than
in Franco nnd Kngland. Nearly every
commercial ami manufacturing branch
of business hns iti own particular terms
of credit, and there is no uniformity iu
this respect.
In England, a payment of tho price of
the gooi'lBilelivr-re I is required at the
end of three months, dating from tbo
dav of shipment.
In l'riince, a iour-month's acceptance
is require I to be sont in settlement of
the invoice.
In Italy, but littlo crodit business is
dono nnrl nono without good security
being given.
In Spain, four-fifths of tho transactions arc dorro on n cnsli basis, while in
Portugal great liberality is shown, aud
quite along credit is usually olluwi'd.
In Austria, it is scnrcoly possible to
do business without allowing a very
long credit, which is nearly always ono
of six months.
Iu Turkey, even objocta of primo
necessity nre sold on credit, and in tiris
country, as well ns in liussin, the time
allowed is in most cases twelvo months.
In Canada, settlements are made at
tho end of thirty dnys, witii a discount
of five per cent Sometimes n credit oi
from threo to six months is allowed but
in this case there is no discount granted
upon payment of the account.
In Mexico the largo commercial
houses willingly givo crodit of from six
to eight month's, nud in tlio retail trade
long terms are given customers in which
to settle tlieir accounts. In Costa Kica
a credit of from six to twelvo months
is given in caso of merchandise imported from Europe, in order that tho
goods may be easily and quickly disposed of. But since this svstem of credit has often led to losses it is now being
givon up.
In Cuba tho timo fixed for payment
is generally from four to five months
after delivery of tho goods.
Tho consul general of tho United
States at Kio stares that one of tlio
greatest drawbacks to commercial intercourse with r.i-arril resides in tlie necessity of allowing too lon^ a credit. At
Kio Janeiro, ns in Buenos Ayres, tho
minimum credit is six mouths and often more.
In the Bermudas, accounts are settled but once a year. Tho r'.otlr of Juno
is tho day usually fixed for tho payments.
In Asia Minor, a credit of but two
or three weeks is in most cases all that
isailowea.
In China, it is not customary to give
credit Money is obtained from Tenders, who exact an interest oi from 8 to
12 per cent. Business is nearly always
conducted upon a cash basis.
In Australia, a credit of six months
is generally allowed.

Pad. It costs less than a single prescription and is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal
Medicinal dosiny. Worn Immediately over
the seat of Disease, Its curatlvo properties
become absorbed by the diseased nnd enfeebled Organs, continuously and directly,
as required to insure ln return their healthy action and original vigour. It Is comfortable to the patient and plensnnt In Its

The Victoria Times publishes it
Tuesdays issue, a comparison of tho
rainfall between Victoria aud Westminster, which comparison it tikes
much care and trouble to prove is altogether in favor of Victoria. Tho
article also points out, particularly to
peoplo outside of the province, that
the precipitation is fifty per cent less in
Victoria than "on the most favored
section of the Mainland," Nobody
for one moment denies that the rainfall in Westminster is greater than in
Victoria, but had Victoria our rainfall
Beacon Hill and other localities would
not bear such a parched appearance
and possibly the Island crops would
comparo favorably with tlioso of
Westminster district. The argument
used by the Times against our district iB a very poor one and goes to
show how eager our island cotempor-
aries aro to decry the mainland to
their own advantngo. By the way, 2.05
inches of rain fell in 24 hours at Victoria last week; during tho same time
2,13 inches fell in Westminster.

Whilo the police wore on the lookout
for a Chinese chicken thief thu other
day thoy met with a piece of knavery
which we can safely say has never been
resorted to by tho almou-eyed ccloBtial
in thia city before. One of tho Chinamen, who is charged with having a
stolen one-eyed hen in hia possession,
in order to clear himself offered to pilot
tho police tu the abode of the true
thief. The .searching party reached
the alleged thieves residence, but to
their groat grief found it untenanted
except by a negro with straight hair.
As the difference between a negro and
a Chinaman i.i so great the detectives
passed him liy without a second glaitco
and proceeded to another rendevous
equally notorious for the doubtful
character of its inmates. Nothing
however wasfomidiu this plnfteand tho
searchers returned to thet bad Chinaman's house in hopes that he had returned, and here a surprise awaited
them. Tho supposed negro turned
out to be uo other individual than the
missing celestial, but nlas, he had
taken flight, leaving nothing but a
blanket behind as u souvenir to his
puMuers.

Gilbert Laird, St. Margaret's Hope,
Orkney, Scotland, writes: "I am requested by Bcvoral friends to ordor another parcel of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric

been tested in several cases of rheumatism, has given relief when doctors'
medicines have failed to have any effect.
The excellent qualities of this medicine
should be made known, that tho millions
of snfferora throughout the world may benefit by its providential discovery."
