PROVINCIAL LE8ISUTBM.
. On Tuesday petitions for the regulation of the liquor traffio vera pre
seated by Hon. Hr. Robson from
New Westminster, snd by Hr.
Beaven from Victoria.—A resolution was passed for the introduction
of a bill to regulate the width of
wagon tires. It was pointed out
that narrow tires did great injury
to the roads.—Ool. Baker introduced
a resolution asking the Dominion
government undertake the Kootenay
Kailway as a'naiioriiil work.' In
presuming this motion he drew attention to the vast extent and resources of that important district
If the whole of Vancouver Island,
he said, were placed in Kootenay,
one could still ride 300 miles in
length and 100 miles in width with
out finding the island. Along the
valleys of the Kootenay and Oolumbia rivers the bottom lands were
very rich, while the benches also
have an excellent agricultural soil.
There are large tracts of timber
lands also, and the mineral wealth
of the district was enormous. At
present there were 90 agricultural
settlers, in the district, and many
hundred miners. If the cost of
provisions and machinery could be
materially reduced by means of railway construction, there would be a
boom in quarts mining.—Hr. Prior
seconded the resolution, which received the support of the attorney-
general, and was passed.—Hr. Theo.
Davie introduced a bill toameud
the homestead act.—Hr. Higgins
introduced a resolution requiring the
rules relating to sheriffs' sales to be
amended so as to ensure due notice.
—Hon. Hr. Robson presented the
public accounts for the six months
ending 31st December last. He
said that a few days ago, when complaining of delay in bringing down
the accounts just presented, the op
position leader' had attacked the
printing department, and inferenti-
ally the treasury department, insinuating that there was lets efficiency
and greater cost than under his own
administration. To meet that insinuation he would submit some
facts. In 188182, the last year of
the Beaven administration, the number of vouchers passed through the
various stages and paid was 6,519:
in 1885-86 it wat 10,065. The
number during the six months ending with last December was 5,285,
or nearly as many as during the
whole of the last year of the former administration. In the printing department the amount of work
had increased 60 per cent, since
1882; and on comparison he found
that while the receipts had increased
300 per cent., the increase in expense of operating had been 25 per
cent. Hr. Beaven had been fond
of boasting of the alacrity with
which he had brought down accounts so much earlier than they are
now brought down; but as a matter
of faot the publio accounts were
brought down earlier than they had
been under the former administration, and (his in spito of the fact
that they had increased from 44 to
68 pages! And whereas the accounts of 1882, amounting to 44
pages, were in the printer's hands
16 days, the accounts now presented, comprising 68 pages, were only
11 dayt in the hands of the printer!
—Hr. Beaven still contended that
the efficiency ot the department had
decreased while tbe expense of it
had materially increased.
In reply to questions it was stated
that the late J. 0. Hughes bad
made application for N. W. 1 of sec.
4, Texada Island. The application
was refused because it had been sold
in 1873 to Henry Trim, though under a wrong designation. Hr.
Hughes paid $120 purchase money
for the lot, ahd the government
agent at New Westminster had issued a certificate of purchase in
error. Instructions had been sent
to the agent to return thit amount
on surrender of the certificate of
purchase. In reply to Hr. Orr, the
attorney-general said an action had
been commenced against the O.P.R
for recovery'of the $250,000 bond,
and was going on.—Hr. Theo. Davie
wished the house to adjourn till
after the elections, but the wish
was not granted.—-Hr. Higgins introduced his bill to amend the ballot
act, in which it was proposed that
ballots be counted at each polling
place where they were cast. After
considerable discussion the bill passed its second reading. During the
debate Hr. Orr said he did not
think it safe to have the ballot boxes
packed nil over the country and
stored in some government building
till the last box came in. The attorney-general thought that as the
polling divisions in this provinoe
were in some oases very small, the
seensy of the ballot would be endangered by the change.

THE GERMAN PARLIAMENT.
Berlin, Mar. 3,—There were 250
member, preaeat at the opening session of the reichstag, among them
most of the National Liberal., including V«n Bennigaen and Miguel. Prinoe
Louis ol Bavaria occupied a seat in
the imperial box. The members of
tbe Bundesrtth entered the chamber
headed by Von Boetissher, representative uf tne chancellor, who read the
emperor's speech. The concluding
pasasges of the speech referred to
Germany's future polioy, appealing to
the reichstag fur unanimity in voting

feld proposed three cheers for the emperor, aud led the demonstration in

TBI GARRISON REVOLT.
Sotia, Mar. 3.—The loyal troops of
Ashurana garrison suppressed the revolt at Slleataria. Tho engagement
was brief, almost bloodies.. The insurgents occupy the citadel at Ruat-
chuk, and are shelling the loyalists in
tht barracks.
OMINOOS IF TRUE.
Paris, Mar. 3.—A sensation ia
oaused by the publication in Le Temps
of a dispatch from Cairo stating that

THE QUEEN'S JUBU.EE.
London, Mar, 3.—The first queen's
jubilee drawing-room was held to-day
in Buckingham Palace. Her majesty
ia in Ihe enjoyment of line health.
She took an bour'a drive before the
time sppoipted for tbe event. The
attendance was greater than at any
preceding affair ot the kind during the
long reign of the queen. The number
of debutantes was unprecedented.
The wstth.r was fine, and the crowd,
congregated in the park, and roadway,
around tht palace numbered many
thousands. Court officials say the reception was the most brilliant they
ever attended. It ia aaid un itoud au
thority thst tht pope will take nu
other thin tha most ftvurtble attitude
towards Cardinal Gibbuiisuud the
American bishops regarding Ihe
Knights of Labor. Statements drawn
up by the papal obligate, letters from
otrtain American Callolio statesmen
to the pope, and the personal opinion
of Cardinal Manning, all support Cardinal Gibbons. The pupa himself, it
is said, favors the a>pir*ti. i uf mod.
trn labor.
THE REVOLT.
Bucharest, Mar. 3.—The leaders
of tha Silesteria revolt did not cron
tho Danube, but passed into Dabra-
iara. The garrison at Rustchuk split
in two factions. Government troups
attacked tbe rebels sheltered iu lhe
barracks. Many wert killed anil
wounded. Nobody lt allowed to leave
Rustohuk. Gen. Brialmont, who has
been experimenting in Belgium with
the explosive melinite, baa been advised by the Roumanian government
to .uspend labor un the defensive
work, around Bucharest, aa it will be
neeesury to devise new plan, tn with-
ttand the new explosive.
DILLON GOBS FOR THE OOVERNMENT.
London, Mar. 3.—The government
intends to oall the attention of Uie
Vatican to archbishop Croke's letter
advising the non-payment of taxes in
Ireland.
In the commons to-night Dillon,
commenting on the vote of £300 for
the Irish police, pointed out that tho
claim wat in addition to £02,500 already voted for extra pay and travel-
ting expenses. The greater portion of
this money has been spent ia endeavoring te suppress public meetings and
carrying on the work of eviction. Tlie
government avoided Indicating the
sums spent on evictions. If the English people knew how their money waa
spent they would  rise in rebollion
against such a system. He was informed that the cost of the Woodford
evictions amounted to £1300, while
the total amount in dispute between-
the landlord and tenants was only £25.
No amount of expenditure would ever
suppress the plan ef campaign or public meetings. He warned the government that meetings would continue,
and if bloodshed should follow, shame
and crime would bo on tlie head of the
government. (Hear, hear). He had
been accused of not denouncing crimes
in Ireland. He had done better, he
appealed to the people to abstain from
crime. It was tho action of the government tliat led to the commission of
outrages.

Mr. IMHHlwaf* IMlOTMt.
Editor Columbian.—In your weekly issue of the 23rd inst., just to hand,
appears a leader from your pen, settmg
forth the reasons why, at the eleventh
hour, I retired from the present politi
cal contest. The public in reading the
said article would infer thnt I retired
on my own account, vfliich you are
aware is not the case; therefore you
will pardon me for setting myself right
on this particular point. You will remember when in caucus that-two
gentlemen, member, of the committee,
reported that they interviewed Mr.
Trapp and that he said he would not
entertain any compromise with the
view of having one of us retire in order
to insure success and that he must go
to the {voil.
It was* decided by the oommittee
that I should remain in the field if the
people of Chilliwhack approved. The
next day I started for home and visited
Chilliwhack, aud the goneral opinion
there was that I ahould remain in tbe
field; so, on Saturday the 12th 1 sent
a telegram to the secretory of the oommittee stating all right, sua commenced
my canvass. But to my surprise, oh
the Monday following I received a
telegram from tho secretary setting
forth that a committee meeting haa
been held and tho majority decided
that I should retire from the field.
I have reason to believe that tome
members of tbe oommittee strenuously
opposed this decision, but the majority
prevailed, and as I bad placed myself
entirely in the hands of the committee
I could not honorably do anything elae
but to graciously retire. 8o you will
perceive Mr. Editor that the honor
and responsibility of my retirement
rests entirely with the majority of the
committee.     Tours respectfully,
D. McGlLLIVBAY.

over the laud. Sonie of nur neighbors
on the flats were thinking of building

thero being a large number present.
The proceeds amounted to about $40,

took exception to the ttory of Jacob's
vision of the ladder. "I [ought angels had wines," he said. " So they
have," said his mother "Why did
they walk up to heaven when they

gave it up. " I'm sure I don't know,"
she said. He thouuht it all over for a

In spite of the great extent of
railway constructed on this continent during the post three or four
years, it is said that thore aro no
less than 12,000 miles projected for
the year 1887. It has beon estimated that the manufacturing establishments of the United States
will not bo able to furnish sufficient
rails for these lines, and that about
250,000 tons will havo to be imported. Most of this will probably
come from Great Britain, whence,
in spite of the heavy American
duty, considerable quantities have
been imported for American consumption already.
Some of the military authorities
and statesmen of Europe are speculating upon the probable plan of
campaign in the Franco-German war.
In 1870, after the declaration of war
by France, German troops immediately moved towards the provinces
of Alsace and Lorraine, then belonging to France, and the French
forces were speedily concentrated on
the frontier. Within a few weeks
the fate of the contending forces
had beon decided, and what followed
wns ii mere working out of details.
It is said that Gen. Boulanger has
information of tho most complete
kind respecting the German army
nnd fortifications, and that the whole
scheme of attack and many of tho
subsequent movements have been
thoroughly worked out. The French
have a splendid army, and they are
very confident of their ability to
wipe out the disgrace which hns
clung to them over since the crushing humiliation of 1870.

About Frogs.
Among the new industries which
havo sprung up of lute years in
order to supply new habits of the
people, is the "froggery." The demand for well-nourished frogs was
once confined almost wholly to
France, nnd very much to Paris;
but as the flavor of the delicate
morsel fell upon the palate of other
peoples, the practice of frog-eating
became more general. It is said to
be quite common now-a-days to find
preparations of frog on the bills of
fare of many of the best American
hotels. In Europe the frog supply
is not so extensive as in America,
and there has sprung up a demand
aoross the Atlantic for the American frog. Not long ago a company
was organized for the purpose of
establishing an extensive froggery
on Lake OayUga, in the state of
New York. The prinoipal product
of this establishment will be the
bull frog, which grows to an immense size (weighing 24 ounces)
and whose flesh has been pronounced
superior to that of any other species.
It is almost a universal opinion
among those who havo eaten these
animals that they are most delicious,
and they are pronounced on excellent authority to be extremely
wholesome nnd nourishing. The
hind quarters are the only part used,
tho rest of the body being always
rejected. In New York they fetch
from 40 to 50 cts. per pound. The
flavor of an approved frog is described as somewhat similar to that
of the wing of a spring chicken,
mingled with a suggestion of smelt,
and just a suspicion of cucumber.
Considering the very mixed nature
of froggie's diet, one need not wonder at thc variety of flavors found
in his flesh. Frog culture ought to
be successful on many of the low
lands between this city and tho gulf,
but hitherto the demand for that
dish has been quite limited in this
province.
Tlie Vancouver Situation.
Our cotemporary of the Vancouver News thinks the interference
of the government nnd the liouso
with special legislation for the protection of Chinese in that city is
unwarranted and outrageous, and
that a large proportion of the people, even outside of Vancouver, denounce it. We are afraid our co-
temporary has not drawn his information from reliable sources. We
have heard many expressions of
opinion on the subject, and we have
yet to meet a person who does not
approve of tho steps taken. Tliese
expressions of opinion have not by
any means been confined to this
oity, but they oome from the outlying settlements as well, and from
Viotoria. It is useless for the Nam
to protest that the civic authorities
of Vanoouver were able and willing
to protect the Chinese. The faot is
they did not protect them, nor did
they nuke a requisition upon the
government for help. That the Ohinese were shamefully treated cannot
be denied, and it is also undeniable
that onr laws os well as the common
dictates of justice, have been violated by theae outrages. Moreover,
the friendly relation) between Great
Britain and Chine were endangered.
If no pnblic protest had been mado,
and if the perpetrators of the outrages had been permitted to go unpunished, what guarantee would
there be any more for the safety of
British subjects in Ohina! Tbe aotion of the government will ehow to
the outside world that these excesses
am not committed with offloial oon-
nivance or approval, and the prompt
punishment of tho lawless agitators
will provo that British law is no respecter of persons. The News does
not- seem able to discriminate between the Chinese labor question
and justice to the Chinese. There
are very few who would not give
consent to any measure looking to
the exclusion of Chinese by nny law
ful and honest process, but tliere are
lots of poople who will not stand by
and see the Ohinese abused.

THE CONSULAR BUREAU.
Bom. Chapter, of Mystery From th. Stat.
Dapart-nent at Waabington*
A coriMpondent writing from Washington to the Pittsburg Leader says few
wonld imagine thut there was anything
under the roof o( the State Department
that oould excite the softer emotions ol
humanity.
One of its branches is commonly
associated with awesome international
score's, diplomstio dignity and primeval
silence; the othor with consular reports
and monotonous mercantile transactions.
Bat in the room of Or. St. Clair,
chief of Consular Bureau, there is a
cabinet the contents of whioh suggest
tears tnd sorrow, deaths in strange
lands, man's waywardness ud woman's
devotion. The collection isdmply that
of the effeots, trinkets and papers of
American citisens who have diedabroad,
their abode and relatives in this country
being unknown.
Ihe United States consuls send these
records to the Consular Bureau. It
institutes searches for heirs or friends
of the mysterious deceased.
Some curious cases have been developed in the endeavor to establish the
identity of Americans who have died at
consular stations without removing the
veil of mystery enveloping their past
Some years ago Mark Hamilton died
at Nice, France. He had lived there in
the opulence of a retired life, in questionable intimacy with a woman. His
name wu presumed to be an alias.
After his demise and the usual effort
had been made to trace his heirs, the
publio administrator of New York came
to the State Department and demanded
effects whioh the Nioene consul had
sent over.
The gold ooiu, gold watch and personal papers were turned over to him
after proper authentication of his official
Sosition.    Ho had himself secured in
ew York city #12,000 belonging to the
estate of Hark Hamilton,
Afterward letters came from persons
in Pennsylvania, Illinois and Ohio claiming kinship with him. They were all'
transmitted to the publio administra
tor.
Hen waa a man whose papers disclosed the faot that be bad extensive
stoek dealings with brokers in New
York, Chicago and St. Louis, He had
even Imd bis orders for the purchase of
$25,000 worth of stocks honored, and
yet bis death had been a complete extinguishment of self, either as a memory
or un ever existent fact
It is not known whether any distribution waa ever made among those who
asserted heirship.
In one corner of this cabinet is a small
package, which comprehends the entire
estate, "devised and residuary," of S.
Banders, alius Isaao Landers, of the
British ship Robert Pearoe.
Tbis seaman died at Havana in 1881.
In the Package are $26, a Testament and
some letters. Upon the fly leaf of the
Testament is written: "Presented to
Isaac Landers to commemorate a solemn
vow—flattie." . I
Who could not guess that ihat tot
was abstinence from grog?
The letters are from bis slater, Hattie
Landers, who writes from Bradford
street, Lawrence, Mass,, and also from
IJjston. And yet she has never been
fonnd by advertisement.
In the common wooden box are some
of the "estates " of unknown Americans
who died at Shanghai
The handwriting upon most of the
paokages is that of Burg Bawi* Lewis,
whoso tragic fata wu at sad at thtt of
tliose fellow-countrymen whom in death
l.o sought to befriend,   fWf!f IT$!
Lewis waa summoned to thii eity
from China as a witness in the George
P. Seward investigation. When he was
Bent baok be was penniless.
though tbe ordera were explicit for
liis reinstatement it was delayed, Finully poor Lewis wat restored to bis
],laoe, but tbe debit contracted during
, u forced idleness go preyed upon his
mind th.t he ended an oppressive Ufa
byabnUetinUtbrain.
In thia box is an ordinary black muslin-covered portfolio. In it is an enrol*
ope with no enelosure.
Upon it ii written in t plain, bold
rand, suggesting high intelligence:
"Mymother'taddnssle MrsTjRthan-
iei Buggies, ear* of Mrs. Ii D. Taylor,
Evanston, Cook oounty, Illinois. I
leave thia to that ahould sudden aocl-
lent overtake me some kind soul may
•rite my mother."
The writer of this pathetic memorandum wu Jonathan Boggles, who died
at Shanghai. Dee. 19, 1889. Sixteen
years have pasted; years, may be, of
iltornate hope and dispairina mother's
breast brooding ont aeon's waywardness.
Iu a pasteboard box are tome trinkets
that indicate feminine ownership,   A
' velvet rata encloses the daguerreotype
of a man whose features suggest the
libertine.
This wu what Leonora WUliama left
. when a depraved lifeondedat Shanghai.
There are more of these personal effect, of wanderers and fugitives. They
an uot relics of the saints, rather souvenirs ot mysterious sinners.
When, the work of tracing personal
histories is begun by tht Department
officials it prootedt almost invariably
through details of liaisons, aliases,
flights from justice, dispositions to
roam, and all the thadowa that fill upon
human life.

HOW A DWARF CAPTURED THE SUN.
An Attractive tied Indinn Fairy Story.
■',■■ Onco upon a time thero was a dwarf,
so very small in, size that whoa ho
killed a wren—all by himsolf, too—
he thought he was n hero in tbe first
degree, and strutted mound in tho grass
us proud as it ho hud slain several
braves of anothor tribe in single combat.
Ho hod one-half of the wren—a
fair bait; none of your irregular fractions—cooked at onco for a foust for
tke whole lodge, and had a mind to
mako himself a feather cont. And by
and by he did another wren to
death, and then he got his coat.
But happening to go to sleep one
day in the sunshine, the heat mado
the birds' skins shrivel up so that
tboy I ecame . quite uncomfortably
email, nnd tbe dwarf was furious,
Uo vowed ho would pay the sun out,
So ho got. his sister to plait a rope
out of hair, and, having mode a slipknot in it, ho pegged it down on the
side of the hill, close to the top
of it, just where he had noticed
the snn was ncoustomed to get
up. And, sun enough, when the
sun rose next morniug, it ran its
head right into the slipknot and got
caught. , .
The consternation in nature wu
prodigious until the dormouse, remarking what was the matter, went
and nibbled tlie plait through and
released the luminary, whereupon
everything went on just u if nothing
had happened.  '•'  v'\; T
But the dwarf oame home to bit
sister in High dudgeon. He was not
going, he said, to bother himself about
suns any more. It wm not worth his
while. Ho had moro serious matters
to attend to. And so be began making preparations for going out on another wren bunt.
Suoh, in the bald outline, is A red Indian "fairy story," whioh seems to me
to illustrate fairly well the tone of
the humor of the aboriginal Amerioan.
The hero is a dwarf—ond this is an
ossentiul point in the folk jests of a
■ icoplo who consider a fine physique tho
limb qiinlillcution of manhood—and in
liis pompous pursuit of verysmoll birds,
nud Bulwoijueut inflation when ho is
successful ih tho chose, the leading
characteristics of the red man are slyly
bnrlesquod.
Uo suoceeds in nn impossible exploit,
and in the true spirit of a hero, mokes
no fuss about it, bnt when the sun
is let go by tbo dormonso, bo affects to
think that such trifles as sun-catching
are beneath, him,- and sots himself seriously to the task of killing another
wren.
There is a novelty in the flavor of this
fooling and a freshness of Boeno and
circumstances that, so it appears to me,
make tbe absurd story attractive,—[Son
Francisco Chronicle,
The Old Family Turnout.
The vehicles of a place that has long
been in one family possession become
historic. The wheels and axles of the
present " milking cart," relegated now
to tbe farmer's transits over the fields to
pastures fair, why, theso wen once
the sparkling belongings of the froggy
that went a courting.

geological periods mon accurately

inseparable belonging of your family;

H you cannot the Presidents, each of
whom taught you more evil than yonr
careful mother could punish out of
you—oh, "tales ot my grandfather,"
told to you on that box seat as you rode
outside, and your mother and sisters
made party calls.
How If ng you stood drowning before

Caviar tn, Tight aVadng.
The great naturalist, Curler, wu
walking oue day with • young lady who
wu a victim of tight lacing, lo, a publio

an elegant plant drew from her an
expression of admiration.
Looking at hor pale, thin face, Cuvier
laid:
" You wen like thit flower once; tomorrow it will be tt you in now."
Next day bo led her to the aame apot,
tnd the beautiful flower wu dying.
She uked the cause,
"Thisplant,"replied Cuvier, "is an

what is tho matter with it."
He pointed to a eord bound tightly

Tim Yorick Club.—The members
of thia club have decided that the
club sball 'continue to exist during the
coming season. Lawn tennis and outdoor amusements will be the substitute for dancing.
Another Ttio.—J. M. Cowper, of

Interestinci Reminiscences. — On
Wednesdny evening the members of
the preBbytery of Britisli Columbia,
wore entertained by the congregation
of the First Presbyterian Church, Victoria. Rev. R. Jamieson, of this city,
presided, and in his remarks said that
25 years ago last Sabbath he had
preached to tliat congregation hiB tirst
sermon in British Columbia.
Presrvterv of Coiumbia.— The
Presbytery of Oolumbia met at
Victoria on Wednesday, tho Rev. Mr.
Jainienm, moderator, and Rev. Mr.
Thomson clerk. Among other items
of public interest, the Rev. R. F.
Burns, D. D., of Halifax, NjS., was
nominated for the moderatorihip of
the General Assembly of the .Presbyterian church in Canada, to meet in
Winnipeg in June. The following
were elected as commissioners and
representatives from the Presbytery
to attend the Oeneral Assembly at
Winnipeg: Rov. Mr. Jamieson, Rev.
Mr. Fraser, Rev. Mr. McRae; Messrs,
J. C. Brown, New Westminster, Walter Olark, Victoria, and — Saunders,
Vanoouver.
Island Defences.—It is now definitely announced that the guns for the
defence of Victoria and Esquimalt
will be twenty-iix in number and of
large calibre. They will be distributed along the coast and will command full tweep cf the straits. At
Signal Hill, Esquimalt, will be a fort
containing three heavy guns. Near
Fisgard lighthouse, Esquimalt harbor,
on land owned by Henry Saunders,another fort will be plaoed. On Sang-
ster't Plains a large fort will be erected. Oo McCauley's Point two forts
will be placed. Here it it also proposed to erect the barracks, and eight
or ten acres of land will be secured
for this object. It is also thought
.ume portion of Mount Douglas will
be utilized. Engineers are now surveying a four-mile radius around Esquimalt and Victoria for Military purposes. It will thus be seen tbat it is
the intention of the imperial authorities to amply tecure the protection of
their Pacific naval atation and the entrance to the straits frnm any attack
that may in the future b. made on

Customs JIevenue.—Customs collections at tbe port of Victoria for
February amounted to 825,452, of
which $22,408 was for duties. This
is a decrease off819,140 compared

and of $26,180 compared with
February 1885. While the collections at the port of Now Westminster steadily increase, the port of Victoria continues to show a large decrease

and here he waved his hand through
the nir and glanced at the sky. Don't
attempt to quiz that man about the
"beautiful" weather to-day. Ho has

Accident.—Dr. Cooper was called
out of the city yesterday to attend to
a youni- lad living on the North road.
It appears the boy had just leaded a
gun with the intention of going hunting when it exploded at the breach,
carrying away a couple of his fingers
and mangling his hand badly. Tho
doctor removed his thumb, but it is
expected thc whole hand must bt amputated. The boy and his people
moved into the country recently, and
his name cannot bn learned.

run the mails across the continent in
timo to catch tho first steamer from
New York. This is a masterly stroke
of enterprise, and ia done, it is said,
with a view to outgeneral the oxpected competition of the Canadian Pacitio
Railway, which proposes to run a lino
of steamers to the colonies and is bidding for tho contract to carry the
mails.

Game Protection.-"-Mr. Vernon
haa introduced into the legislature
a bill for the better protection of certain animals and birds. Thit uct
ohanges the close season in some respects, and adds new clauses. It proposes to terminate the close so.son for
grouse earlier, so that thete birdt may
be thnt between the 12th of August
and the lst of February. Ben pheasants mutt not be killed at al). Deer,
elk, etc., may be killed from Sept. lst
to Jan. 10th, California and Virginia
quail may be thot from Oot. lst to
Feb. 1st. The season for wild duck is
from August 12 to March lit. The
penalty for killing out of, teaton it
from $10 to $20 ior oach bird or animal. We are lorry Mr. Vernon did
not insert a clause prohibiting the
Rilling of insectivorous or singing
birdt for the purpose of tecuring their
wingt or tkint for decoration of female headgear. It is a cruel and inexcusable practice, and aught to be
forbiddtn.

The Confederation Lift.
The annual report of tbis solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in tbe aooounta and tbe Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ocomiums which
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to tl<o resolute
manner in which the Company bu declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the work*
ing expenses of the company bear to the
total income he very small utio of between 17 and 18 per eent. A point attesting t'.ie toandoeasof the finances of
the Company li the faot that tbe interest
income is sulicient to pry tho death
claims—which in a company oE the age of
the Confederation Life te something to be
proud of. The ass. ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of 9282,190
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in the last year'
was $260,300. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what thc
President defined as the true polioy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, un*
wise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

White Bronze Monuments.—White

8pec:fl! p*-**- oot ?n {n this country.. It has
been found to uo bo well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have bsen for some thno established at
Bridgepo-t, Conn., Detioit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, t»rd Si. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of aU kinds
aud styles. From experiments trade by
these companies, it has bean found that
the roaieiial will stand exposure for on
indefinite pe-Jod—it is practically indestructible. Wiiite Bronze being non-
corrosive rnd unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which thiows off a vevdigriB. The monuments are enst from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high p 'ensure of steam,
whioh cuts the surface, but does not adhere to it. A thin film of. oxide whioh
