current Events and Opinions.
Tho difference betweon a newspaper tiiid an organ ia that a newspaper publishes important news for
the enlightenment of the country,
while an organ conceals facts or reveals them according to tho requirements of the man or the party whose
organ it is,—Halifax Mail,
That there is an uneasy feeling
now pervading the English communities in India thoro cannot be tho
slightost doubt. It may be exaggerated, or it may arise out of conditions not permanent, but it is
necessary to erect Btrong forts or
refuges everywhere for women and
children in case of anarchy and revolt.—Saturday Pernio.
Tlie root of the canvassing business is the unwillingness of many
electors to vote for anybody, however worthy and well qualified, that
does not solicit their votes. This
unwillingness is expressed in the
current idiotic phrase, "If my vote
is worth having, it is worth asking."
Why should any elector expect to
bo asked for his vote? Is it not Itis
duty to voto for tho best candidate
without. being asked 1 Is not tho
franchise a trust, a sacred trust ?
Why should a man expect to be
nsked to discharge the duties arising
out of this trust more than the
duties of any other trust ? The
whole canvassing system is a nuisance, a curse to society, and tlie
curse is inflicted mainly by the people who want to he asked for thoir
votes.—Stratford Beacon.
The increase in tlio case of England of tho exports of domestic produce since 1840 lias beun from about
•£50,000,000 to £240,000,000, an
-.■increase of .£190,000,000. In the
United States in the same period it
has been from about £20,000,000
to £170,000,000 (the exports of the
United States were actually £20,-
000,000 less in 1883), or £144,000,-
000—tho total exports of tlie Unit-
States at tlie present time being
thus less than the increase in th*
exports from England since 1840 ;
in France in tlio same period the
increase is from £43,000,000 to
£140,000,000, or about £100,000,-
000; and so of other nations. In
amount of increase there is no nation to be compared with England.
As regards Germany, wliere wo can
only go baok to 1872, tlie amount
of the domestic exports is still only
about £160,000,000 per annum, or
less than the total increase in the
United Kingdom iu the last 40
years. The percentage increase may
be greater in countries which forty
years ago liad little or no foreign
trade, but those who would endeavor
to prove by using tho percentage
mode of argument that any great
country has progressed relatively as
fast as England would but seek to
deceive.—Globe.

qtlin, litis not only a grip on Formosa, but is fighting for territory in
Madagascar. Italy holds Tripoli
in Northern Africa, antl is seeking
one or more points on the Red Sea.
Great Britain practically holds
Egypt and has a strong fighting force
in tho Soudan. Rumors thioken
from day to day. Many of them
are probably false. There is little
prospect that Great Britain will abandon Egypt at present. None of the
powers, except Turkey, roally want
any such step to be taken, Russia
could not be better suited than to
have Great Britain absorbed in the
Egyptian business, and Franco at
tho samo time with hor hands more
than full with the Tonquin business
and the increasing magnitfi'dtnrf-tno
war in China. Theso are some of
tho European complications whicli
are so many thin clouds along the
horizon. They do not portend immediate war. But tlie complexities
are increasing rather than diminishing. A month or two henco theso
phases may change essentially for
better or for worse. At present
these complications create an uneasy
feeling in Europe. There is a'fresh
inventory going on of war resources,
a, natural result when there is a
war feeling in the atmosphere.—A*
P Bulletin.
Mr. Cleveland's letter to Mr.
George Curtis on tho subject of
civil servico reform must gladden
the hearts of all reformers. It
shows that tho president-elect is
truo to tlie principle of tho Civil
Servico Act, and purposes faithfully
to enforce the law. It further shows
that ho is personally the hearty
enemy of tho spoils system, and that
he is determined to confine the
changes of ofiiee, ou tho accession
of hiB party to power, within tho
narrowest limits whioh the necessities of tho caso will permit Active
and violent partisans of the other
sido must, of course, oxpect to be
removed. Mr. Cleveland evidently
anticipates trouble with the more
extreme and self-seeking members
of his own pnrty. Trouble he will
havo; but if he stands firm, and the
country sees in him its deliverer
from tho spoils system, he will win
no ordinary crown. Aftor ti long
lino of more partisans he will lie the
first national president. It is not
pleasant to feet that Canada at tho
same time is celebrating the culmination of a system whicli immolates
everything to party, which has turned the nominations to a branch of
tho national legislature into n more
bribery fund, and now threatens to
degrade to the samo uso the appointments to tho bench of justico.

So much has been said about silos
and ensilage in this and other journals within the past few years, that
it is surprising the subject should
have escaped the notice of any one,
yet here is u new subscriber in Indiana who asks in efl'ect tlie above
questions. As there may be others
to whom the matter is equally new
we answer our enquiring correspondent in brief. A silo is a contrivance
for preserving green fodder, in the
fresh state similar to that used .in
the cunning of vegetables and fruits
for human food—by exclusion of
air. A silo—literally a pit—is an
air-tight receptacle. It may bo built
of stone, of brick or of wood, It
may be constructed entirely below
ground, entirely above ground, or
built into a bank and bo partly covered and partly exposed. The important point being that its walls
shall bo air-tight. Green forage of
any kind, especially Indian com
stalks, is cut small and closely packed in tho silo, treading it down
firmly. The fodder is covered by
boards or planks, upon which heavy
weights aro placed, tlio cover following the fodder as it settles. Tiie
weights may bo heavy logs, stones
or boxes filled with earth, When
tlie fodder is taken out for feedim
during the winter, it may be quite
unchanged, may havo an alcoholic
odor, or oven a' strong odor of vinegar. Iu cither case tho animals aro
fond of it; but as the alcoholic or
acetic odors indicate that thero bits
been some loss of nutritive matter
hy fermentation, these conditions
aro not desirable, and recent experiments tend to show that they may
be avoided. Several power outtcrs
are now made for the purposo of
preparing tho fodder for storing '
silos. The torm ensilage is applied
to tho method of preserving fodder
aud to tho fodder that hus been thus
preserved. The term ensilo is short,
and well suited for the first uso of
the word ensilage. We ensilo the
corn fodder, and it comes out of the
pit as ensilage.—American Agricul-
rrovlminl Legislature.
After finally disposing of Iho Jurors'
Act and the Inkeepers' Act, tlie school
consolidation act was taken tip. Mr.
Duck moved that "no prayers skull be
used imleaa approved by a majority of
the trustees." Tho motion elicited a
long and hot discuwiun. Mr. Wilson
wns the only member who supported
tho proposal to abolish prayers in public schools. It was opposed by Mr.
Allen, lien. Mr. Robson, Mr. Hoh*e-
son, Mr. Tlico. Davio, and Mr, Galbraith, and was finally withdrawn.
A short discussion took pkco o'J tho
Metlakahtla Indian troubles, which wns
adjourned till Wodncsday, aud sovoral
members, undor a question of privilege, mado corrections in tlio published
reports of thoir speeches, after which
tho houso adjourned till
WEDNESDAY.
Mr. Galbraith moved for correspondence rot-peeling tho grants of lund mndo
in Kootenny to Mr, (.minium. He
said that lnrge additions had boon
made to tho original grant.
Mr. Raybould, in moving tho second
reading of the bill to regulate coul
initios, went into various details respecting tho working of the initios.
Ho said that during the past 0 yoars
there had boon 65 accidents in. tho
coal initios, nnd 37 lives lost bv explosions of gns. Tho minors wero not
satisfied with tho condition now existing, nnd the bill was intended to meet
the objections raised. Mr. Dunsmuir
strongly objected, to the bill, because
while it practically Wok tiio management of coul mines nut of tho hands of
tho ownes, it did not sooiire safety to
the miners. It proponed to mako a
board of miners oxumiuo tho fireman
for tho purpose of nsoertoinimi whether
he was competent. Dut not one miner
in ono hululred understood the nature
.of tho diflbnmt gases of the coalmine,
Nearly evory accident had boon caused
by tho carelessness ot the miners them-
lelvos. Mr. Then. Davio moved tho

Wednesday   Morning.   Fell. 4. iwo.
Although an impression prevails
everywhere that the British forces
in Egypt are safe, news is looked
for with very great eagerness. The
junction of the forces ought to bo
brought about now witli very little
delay, aud the relief of Khartoum
accomplished. What Gen, 'Gordon
may propose when he is released no
one is able to guess, but it will undoubtedly bu something entirely
original and worthy of consideration.
The very foolish effort of tlie
liquor dealers of Seattle to boycott
and crush out the Post-Iutclligencer
seems to have been a complete failure. Boycotting is a game at which
two can play, nnd tlio intelligent
people of Seattle made up tlieir
minds that the patriotic utterances
of an independent journal upon the
iivils of tho liquor trafflo and Sabbath violation would not subject it
to loss and starvation. We con-
gmtulute our Seattle cotemporary
most heartily upon his fearless criticisms and his triumph over Forces
which ought not to prevail.
wiih
O'Donovan Rossa, tbe dynamite
(lend, has been treated to a slight
taste of powder. From despatches
published elsewhere it will be seen
that he has been shot by a woman,
and many patriotic persons will sincerely regret that the pistol was not
aimed to better purpose. A man
who boasts openly in the destruction
of innocent human lives, end who
lives and grows fat on the contributions of fanatics whose worst passions it is his constant aim to keep
inflamed, cannot expect sympathy
when he, the assassin, is attacked
by assassins. His life has been a
curse ami a blotch: if ho were wiped
out of existence tho moral atmosphere would, become so much the
more pure*
Discouraging Possibilities.
There will certainly be great disappointment throutrhout the country if it happens by any chance that
the negotiations between the govemment and the C.P.lt. syndicate
for an extension to Coal Harbor
should fail. During the past season
there have been no investments or
improvements of auy extent at Port
Moody in consequence of doubts
which existed respecting the fluid
terminus. Hundreds of thousands
of dollars would have been spent in
permanent improvements if this uncertainty had not existed, and the
whole country would have felt tlie
stimulating influence of that expenditure. If the agreement should
fail to receive the approval of the
legislature, the country will go on
for years experiencing the dreadful
influence of this uncertainty, and
industry nnd enterprise will be
paralyzed. The C.P.lt. syndicate
people declare that they will erect
temporary works at Port Moody
nnd remain there until the Hastings
Sawmill Co's. lease expires, and then
go down to Coal Hnrbor. The lease
has yet nbout two' years to run, and
these would be two years of depression nnd stagnation in this district.
People would not enter upon any
extensive improvements at Port
Moody .when tbey know tlmt the
. ultimate destination of the road is
Coal Harbor, People would not
invest at Coal Harbor two years iu
advance of railway operations at
thnt point. Building operations,
which were confidently looked for
would be nil, nnd there would be
neither boom nor even a steady
development, investors who have
lieen for months waiting impatiently
to put foreign capital into terminal
improvements, would become discouraged and abandon their projects.
The railway connection botween
this city nnd the C.P.R., towards
which the people of this city liavo
been looking with so much expeci-
nncy, would probably not lie built.
It is not likely the syndicate will
construct this line under any circumstances until the final terminus
has been reached, There will be
no part of the country benefited
by the rejection of the agreement,
except Port Moody, and tho benefit
it will derive would be extremely
small and temporary. Indeed, the
failure of the legislature to ratify
the bargain would lie a positive injury to the whole country, from the
consequences of which it could uot
hopo to escape for many years. We
cannot believe that such a misfortune is in storo for us.

High licenses.
ft is claimed that high Hcojiho
regulations have generally been successful* in reducing the evils of the
drinking customs, uud at the same
time increasing tlio revenues derived
from that source, in Minneapolis
high license reduced the number of
saloons from 517 to 274. In the
state of Illinois the revenue derived
from the liquor traffic hns been increased under high license from
$700,000 to $4,500,009 and at the
same time the number of drinking
places was reduced from 13,000 to
9,000. In Michigan, where a license of $300 was imposed, the
number of licenses fell from 4,600
in 1875 to 3,874 in 1883, although
the population had increased by
400,000 during the same period. In
Missouri the licenso revenue hns
been increased by high licenso from
8358,000 to $1,404,000 whilo tho
number of licenses has fallen front
7,070 to 5,265. In this state the
license fee ranges from $550 to $1,
200, and it is asserted that the high
license has produced a decided decrease in the quantity of liquor consumed. Considered abstractly tho
whole license system is undoubtedly
bad. Jf the traffic in intoxicating
liquors is an evil,, mid no one will
deny this, the stato cannot be justified in licensing nn evil even for
revenue purposes. But in the
present state' of society and public
sentiment it seems most difficult to
secure or enforce legislation founded
upon correct ethics. Progress towards reform must sometimes be
gradual, and in the temperance reform it has been remarkably slow.
In the absence of more effective restrictions we should be glad to see
the high license plan adopted in this
province. We have a conviction
that if the license was plnced at
$500 the number of drinking places
would be greatly reduced, and the
evils of the traffic considerably
abridged,  Tt is worth a fair trial.
New Developments.
Since the release of the Ticliborne
claimant from prison, there has
been a decided revival of rumors
relating to this remarkable case,
Tiio latest coines from New Zealand, and we find it in the Littleton
Times, published in that colony. It
will be remembered that the claimant stated at the famous trial that
he was wrecked on the ship Bella,
off' the South American coast, and
picked up by tbo ship Osprey which
conveyed him to Australia. If this
statement had been proved it might
have gained him his suit, but after
carotid investigation it was reported
that no record could be found of
any vessel named the Osprey having
touched at Australia during the
period mentioned. It is stated
that some years ago the department
of defence nt Now Zealand removed
some stores from Mount Cook barracks, and among these' stores they
fo.und some shot and cartridge cases
bearing tho name of the ship Osprey. She circumstance does not
seem to have attracted any particular notice at that time, and was
forgotten. Last summer, howevor,
another lot of old stores was being
removed, and among the articles
were a number of cases marked
"Transport Osprey," dnted variously
1844, 1846,1854,1856, nnd labeled
"Por Melbourne," '"For Hobnrt,"
ite. Tliese fresh discoveries, coming about tbe time of the release of
tho claimant, attracted considerable
attention, as they seemed to supply
a most important missing link in
the evidence brought forward by tho
claimant. A cab proprietor in
Littleton has also come forward
with the statement thnt in 1840 a
ship named tlie Osprey brought to
Manukau, New Zealand, a quantity
of machinery for a saw-mill. He
visited the ship several times, aud
does uot think it possiblo that he
could be deceived respecting her
name, li the statements brought
out by the Times are footfl, thero
can be no doubt that a ship called
the Osprey did trade to Australia
about the time when tlie claimant
professes to hnve been picked.up by
such a vessel and carried to the
south seas. Tf this should provo
to be the case, possibly another attempt may be made te bring iuto
possession of his estntes a man who,
half the world believes, in the genuine Roger Ticliborne.

From Cheam.
(Correspondence or the Columbian.)
Cheam, Jan. 20.—The little people
of Cheam Band of Hope will always
have a pleasing remembrance of their
sleighing on Saturday last. Two
sleighs, ono driven by Mr. John Ryder
and tho othor by Mr. P. Greyell,
storted for SumaB at 9 a. m. After
driving 12 miles tbey arrived at the
residenco of Mr. McGillivray whore
tho children with thoir teacher, Miss
Andrews, nnd several of their parents
and friends, spent an enjoyable afternoon. After partaking of lunch the
timo was pleasantly and profitably
spent in listening to recitations, readings and songs by the children who
did remarkably well, showing that their
teacher has not labored in vain. Mrs.
McGillivray helped to enliven the afternoon with some choice music. Altogether it was a happy scene. The
bright amiles on the eager faces of the
children wero surely ample reward to
thoso who so kindly devoted the day
to their enjoyment. But all pleasure
glides swiftly away. About 3 p. m.
the party left for Cheam. Beforo going tho children formed a line and one
by one shook hands with Mr. and Mrs,
McGillivray. When tho last smiling
goodbye had been said, and all were
comfortably seated in the sleighs,
three hearty cheers wero. given by the
lusty young voices, which was responded to bv those on tha verandah. Then,
amid tlie.merry jingle of bells and
song away they went * with happy
hearts over an event which will be a
plonsuro to recall in distant days.
This is the fint excursion of the kind
iu this locality.   We trust it will not
bo tho last.

six-mouths' hoist. The proposition
contained in tho bill he considered the
most monstrous hu had over heard,
After somo further discussion the six
months' hoist was carried on tho following clivisioii: Yeas, Allen, Cunningham, Davie (Hon.), Davie (Theo.),
Dingwall, Drako, Duck, Dunsmuir,
Grant, Galbraith, Martin, McTavish,
Pooley, Smithe, Wilson,—15. Nays,
Beaven, Cowan. Helgesen, John, Me*
Leese, Orr. Raybould,—7.
Mr. Raybould presented a petition
from Robt, O'Brian and others for a
bill to construct water worts at Nanaimo. Mr. Cunningham presented a
petition for a bill to incorporate the
Now Westminster and Southern Railway.
On a question of privilego Messrs.
Theo. Davie, W. Raybould, J. Orr,
Hon. Mr. Robson, and Hon. Mr.
Smithe, all corrected in is reports of
their speeches.
A long discussion took placo on Mr.
Pooley's resolution asking the government to settle local claims against McNameo it Co. out of tho @10,000 forfeit
money. Hon. Mr. Robson explained
thnt it had beeu proposed to hand thia
sum over to the Dominion government
iu consideration of its undertaking to
settle tbe claims against McNameo &
Co.
It wns moved by Mr, Wilson, and
seconded by Mr. McLeesu, that copies
of all correspondence relating to at-
temps to arrest Emia, the Chilcotin
Indian, be presented to tho house. It
was stated that Emia was known to
have been connected with the Poole
murder, and that he had killed a Chinaman, and tho government was blamed for negligence in not securing his
arrest, Hon. Mr. Davie defended tho
course pursued by the govemment,
und showed that it had not beon negligent iu the mattor. If Emia had boen
guilty of murder, the government had
not been mado awaro of it, and if any
person had evideuce of*his guilt it
should havo boen communicated to
the proper authorities.
Mr. Drake moved the house into
committeo of the wholo on the Metlakahtla Indian enquiry. Ho said the
evidence taken by tho commission
showed that the Indian missionaries
wero more or less responsible for the
troubles. Several clauses of the evidence showed that Mr. Duncan waa
more or less responsible for the opinions held by the Indians. Thoro were
othor clauses that showed tho Indians
wore told that not this government nnr
the crown itself had any right over
their landB, The few lines he had
road showed thero was a serious case
here. Thero were two courses boforo
the government, one was to turn over
to tho rosorvo tlio two acrea of land
on which tho' church wns situated; second, by force of arms to
compel them to respect the law. The
subject was no doubt causod by ecclesiastical dispute, but it had now gono
further, and if it was so, it was a mat-
tor that the provincial government had
no power to deal with, but it waa a
question for tho Dominion authorities
to deal with. Thero was a fooling
among tho Indiana that they hud got
the best of tho government on several
occasions, and tho nows of any facts in
connection with it' spread. over the
whole nort-h-wost coast with groat rapidity. Thoro was a suggestion by
tlio commissioners that thu wholo Indian lands should be handed over to
tho provincial government. Such a
proposition ho felt quite sure'would
not ho acceded to. Thoro was thu
lamentable fact, ho thought, that the
whole Indian troubles had been caused
by the Indian missionaries. ' They
wore really in that part of tho coast
su tiering under a reign of terror by tho
way tho Indians were ucting in reference to the white population.
. Mr. Orr suggested that thu committeo also deal with Skeena river and the
Babine country, as miners had had
thoir horses nnd provisions taken aud
only escaped with tlieir lives. It was
urgent that immediate steps be taken
to protect tho whito'populatioii.
Mr. Grunt suggested thnt tho locnl
government shuuld be placed iu a position so as to take immediate action in
case of any disturbance occurring. The
cummissioners might have reported
more fully on tho matter and placed
the blame on individuals. Mr. Drake
had referred to Mr. Duncan. He hud
been informed by competent parties
that not only Mr, Duncan but llevs.
Woods, Crosby and Green were also
concerned in the mutter. The way to
look at matters was to find out the
cause and remove it. Mr, Clifford hnd
givon evidence thut thu Indians on the
Skeena had told bim that thoy hud
been told thuy had Iho sympathy of
the Metlakahtla Indians, who condoned the olloncu of killing Yeomans and
had a right to arrest nny while man
who came on tho reservation. From
this and other evidence it would stem
that men in that parL nf tho cotmtvy
would live in a stato of fear. The
samo opinion was held by every white
man having interest* iu that purt of
the country. A great many coses could
be cited to show the ideas of the Indians. Tno men who inculcated such
ideas into tho minds of the indians
should be shown that they would be
reached by tho law in backing them up
iu their efforts to break tho laws of
the country. The provincial secretary
had very properly said tho Dominion
government acted slow in matters connected with this provinco, yet lie
thought this government should take
some action in the matter to convince
the Dominion government of the

The Hydas are distinguished for
thoir superior skill, above that possess*
ed by nny other aboriginal people en
the continent, in carving and mecaui-
cai nrts and contrivances generally.
Besides their great columns, 30 to 76
foot; in height, oovored with figures
from top to bottom, nearly every arti
cle used by them is used to represent
either their totem crests, or somo animal, bird or'fish familiar to their sight,

Their designs aro often grotesque,
many evidently purposely so, and their
workmanship commonly rude compared
with that of our best white carvers;
yet their skill, in so curiously and accurately shaping some things, considering their few and inferior tools and
Bomi-savuge state, is quite remarkable.
Desiring to possess some article of Hy-
da manufacture, I gave a young Indian
jeweler a two-and-a-half dollar gold

instructions to make from it an eagle.

Tho Hydas livo chiefly upon fish,
though of lato years they consume also
considorablo quantities of other supplies, especially flour, rice, sugar, coffee, crackers, &c, purchased from the
traders. Of lish, halibut and salmon,
dried nnd smoked, are mainly depend
ed oh, though many other varieties
are eaton in their season— herring,
flounder, trout, rock cod, true cod,
clams, muscles, &c. Pollock, called
by the Hydas "skill," are caught off
tho wcBt coast, principally for their oil,
which is extracted by boiling them in
large wooden tanks, by means of heated stones. Dried herring spawn,
salmon roe, sea and birds' eggs, chitons and octopus nro favorito artices of
diet. Berries and crabapples aro gathered in large qualities and eaten, both
fresh and dried, frequently mixed with
oolauhau grease, their choicest condiment, obtained from the Naas Indians,
Potatoes, generally of an inferior size,
aru raised, chiefly by the old women.
Many wild roots, bulbs and plants, are
also eaten : the lily, epilomum, hor-
acleum, Ac. Bear, wild geese, * duck,
and grouse also contribute to their food
supply, although the present generation of Hydas are not very successful

IIYDA   VILLAGES.
There aro seven inhabited, and fifteen deserted villages upun the islands,
which will bo briefly noticed
in tho order reaohed in circumnavigating the urchipeligo from
North Island, proceeding eastward.
They are situated upon the immediate
shore, the bouses generally standing in
a row, facing to the south or east, with
from one to three tall carved poles in
front. Kah-oh and Ki-oos-ta, both in
ruins, the former containing six houses
and ten pules, and tho latter fifteen
houses and eighteen poles, nre situated
near each other on Parry Passage, on
Moresby Island. On the north side of
the Passage, on the south end of North
Island, opposite Lucy Island, lies Ta*
dense, with its six small houses—still
occupied by hunters and fishermen
during tho suminer—and only one
lonely carved polo. On the rooky exposed shore, just east of Klas-kwun

StJohns, N.P., Jan. 28.—Telegraphic
advices to-day from the channel and
Rose Blanche report a terrible blizzard
on the. weat coast, beginning at four
o'clock yesterday afternoon. A large
number of fishing craft went to the fishing ground early in the morning and
were overtaken by the storm. Twenty-
three skiffs are missing, and many of the
survivors are badly frost-bitten. One
skiff in sight went down with its crew.
The crews of the missing vessels aggregate about fifty men. There are grave
fears tbat the loss of life will be heavy.
San Jose, Jan. 28.—The sensation of
the day is the discovery in a Chinese
brothel of a pure white female child,
aged 16 months. A Chinese woman, who
has possession of the little one, says she
;ot It last Thursday from her sister in
Ian Francisco, and that her sister bought
It when it was six days old. The first
story told by the Chinawoman vvas tliat
her sister was the mother of the ohild by
a white father, but she afterwards stated
that the child hnd been purchased.

relating to discriminations which may be

As the amendment now stands discriminations may be made iu favor of the
coastwise trade of Nicaragua. Vance
made a speech, arguing that the Clayton-
Bulwer treaty was still an obstacle to
the ratification of the Nicaraguan treaty,
and he offered a motion that further
action be postponed until after the 4th
of March. This motion was the subject
of a long debate. Senators Bayard and
Saulsbury and others upon tho Democratic side spoke in favor of the motion,
and Senatois Morgan, Iapham, Conger
and Miller of California opposed it. A
motion was made to adjourn at 5 o'clock
and defeated. A 7 p.m. tbe question of
postponement was pressed to a vote, and
half on hour was consumed in efforts to
secure a quorum. The absentees were
sent for, but pending the vote another
motion to adjourn was made at 7:110 and

New York, Fob. 2.—At twelve minutes after five this afternoon Jeremiah
O'Donovan Rossa, the Irish dynamiter,
so-called, was shot by a woman on Chambers street, near Broadway. At that
hour the streets were filled with people
homeward bound, making their way towards tho Brooklyn bridge. The ex-
oitenicut over the shooting, although the
man was recognized by very few, waa
intense. The first shot fired took effect
iu O'Donovan's body and lie felt to the
sidewalk. The woman continued to
shoot until Bhe hod emptied a five-chambered revolver, but only the first shot
took effect. City Marshall Jas. Mc-
Cautey seized the woman, who still had
the smoking pistol in her bond, and told
her sho was under arrest. The woman
offered no remonstrance, but allowed
herself to bo taken through the moss of
citizens to the city hall station. When
tlie woman ceased firing O'Donovan rose
to his feet and made an effort to find his
way to the office on Chambers street
which he had just left. Ho said "I am
shot," trying to place his hand on his
back under tiie shoulder blade. After a
fow steps iomebody in the crowd suggested tliat lie should go to the Cham-
bers-st. hospital. A couple of men lent
their arms.and O'Donovan did as suggested and walked all tho way there.
The distance is nearly a quarter-mile.
He bled considerably on tho way. He
was undressed and examined by Dr,
Damiimi,' - It was found the bullet had
entered the baok directly below the left
shoulder-blade. The doctor pronounced
the wound not of a dangerous character
and liegan to probe for the ball.
Meanwhile tho woman had been taken
to the station house with a crowd following her. She was placed before Sergt,
Ross' desk, She is a good looking wo-
rain, dressed neatly in plain dark clothing and woro eye-glasses. She appeared
like m school toucher with an intellectual
face. Hor manner was entirely composed
and sho answered some of tho questions
put to her promptly and without embarrassment. To others sho simply shook
her head and smiled, with a look which
said, "I shall only answer questions t
know you have a right to ask, McAuley
handed the pistol, of small, calibre, to
the sergeant, and Baid he had seen the
prisoner shoot a man on Chambers street,
volunteer witnesses assented to the stated foot of the shooting. A citizen here
asked, "Do you know the man you shot?"
"Yes," replied the prisoner, cooly, with
an English accent, "I Bhot O'Donovan
Rous*. The further questioning by ths
sergeant elicited the statement: that her
name is Youoll Dudley, aged 25; that
she is a nurse and married, and lives at
60 Clinton place. She was asked why
she shot ODonovan, how long she had
been in America ami other questions to
which she mode no answers. After her
pedigree had been taken down she was
escorted to a rear room and the crowd
slowly dispersed. As there were no ac
commodations for prisoners in the city
hall station Mrs. Dudley was removed
to Oak station at 7:15 p. in., and placed
lu a cell. Her entire demeanor Is tliat
of a rational person and n cool-headed
one at tliat.
and ut almost every street comer was a
group of men jubilantly discussing the
event. Passing pedestrians who stopped
to hear what the excitement was awut
were told "O'Donovan Kossa has been
shot." The response was invariably a
cheer or some other expression of delight.
Many men became almost frantic in the
exuberance of tlieir feelings. Strangers
embraced each other effusively and shook
hands with tho fervor of life-long friends;
then they would link arms and rush off
in squads to the bars of the. nearest
hotels, shouting as they went "Rossa is
shot!" Many thousand toasts were
drunk to the health and happiness of
Mrs, Dudley, who is lauded as a heroine,
LoNDON.Feb. 3.—The .Dotty Telegraph,
commenting on tho shooting of Rossa,
says: "It would be idle to pretend that
there is the smallest sympathy for Rossa
ia Kngland. He iB not a bold patriot
willing to die on behalf of his country,
but has always been ready to cheer others
into danger whieh he himself avoided.
From the Beginning of his career there
never has been a speck of nobility or
courage or patriotism iu his conduct."

the fact that some of her boiis have denounced the dynamite outrage, and calls
upon Parnell alao to Bpeak.

Nhw York, Feb. 3.—Another sketch
of Mrs. Dudley, given by a woman who
says she is an intimate friend, makes the
prisoner a Canadian, and a native of
Montreal. Sho came to New York 8 or
0 months ago, and wns employed as a
nurse ut the New York hospital. While
there she sang sometimes, and had an
unusually fine voice. She was considered
"strong minded." Her father holds a
government position of a petty nature in
Montreal. Otlicr relations ara prominent
in government circles. Her cousin, Dr,
Van Norman, was physician two years
ago to a company which built a large
hotel at Rockaway, Another family of
relations named McPherson, or McPliee-
ters, hold influential positions in Quebec.
This branch, when in New Yock, showed
invitations they claimed to have received
to tlie Princess Louise's reception, Tlie
entire family are wedded to English customs to a remarkable extent, and by
their bigotry in English ideas have alienated several persons who wore otherwise
inclined to be friend y. Mrs. Dudley
left my hospital 4 months ago and returned to Canada, whore she has been
connected with tho English government
secret service, • She returned to New
York-only recently.
New York, Feb. 3.—The head quarters of O'Donovan Rossa's paper have
been temporarily removed to the Cham*
bers-st. hospital, wliere the editor-in-
chief lies with a bullet from Mrs.
Dudley's pistol still embedded in
his back. Rosbu's office on Centre et. is
closed to-day. The physicians at the

Raising Church Funds.
A correspondent seems greatly exercised '>vcr the best and most legitimate
menus to be employed for raising the
funds necessary for carrying forward
all tlm different departments for general and congregational Church work.
Wu don't wonder at his anxiety, for a
good many of tho plans hit upun and
referred to can bo justified on no high-
minded, self-respeot ing principle whatever. They not only bring tho world,
but the worst part of the world, ahd
the world's ways, into the Church, and
think by such means to accomplish,
with comfort and efficiency, some important part of the Church's work.
The story of tho Roman Emperor
and hia tax ou dung has been often
told. Tlie gist of it lies iu this, that,
when remonstrated with by his sou for
imposing such a disreputable tax, he
simply held a coin to the young man's
noso nud bade hiin smell that. The
coin, no doubt, had no bad smell, aud
yet it was "filthv lucre," all the same,
iu more senses than one. A good
many Christian poople and " runners"
of churches seem to have Vespasian's
ideas exactly. All money that comes
into the Church coffers is, in their estimation, "goud," through whatever
channel it comes, and given from whatever motive.
Even that part of tho world that
does not think itself, aud ia not thought
by others, in any great dogreo squeamish, does uot beliovo in " raising the
wind " by lotteries nnd gambling. Experience has shown them that such
means are ton demoralizing to be reputable. Uut the "lucky bag" and the
lottery ticket flourish more or less hidden under one pretence or another,
sometimes not hidden at all, when the
glory of (lod nnd tho good of the
Church are concerned, "(trnb guinea"
abound. Votes on tlie prettiest girl
or the wisest statesman are made actually Iho moans of grace, if uot subjects
for uctual prayer, when they range

used ns instruments for replenishing
"the treasury of the Lord." Indeed,
it would take more timo than we
cI>oodo tn expend on the matter to enumerate all tho kinds of tomfoolery resorted to when funds aro low and
claims uro many.
Is such work healthy ? Can it be
reasonably expected to succeed? Whnt
is reasonably to be expected from
"necktie" or "apron" socials, and
much elso I Church socials, no doubt,
when rightly conducted, and when
meant to meet the social element of our
nature, aro all very woll. But, after
all, when money is wonted for religious
enterprises, is it not the true, manly,
Christian plan tor those who believe in
tho necessity to supply the " needful"
in current coin of the realm, and not
to try to induce those who care for
none of tlioso things to contribute a

High Class Organs..
From the Toronto Globe.
Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. Tho
erection of this building, which cost
about 91)000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by tho Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has be^n rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase provm
beyond question that the public approve
tho provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd ihay be
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
tlie success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted witli tlie business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretory and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and Vf. S, Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus wob
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, aud the establishment was increased, until it now occupies n leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
pianos per month. These are produced
by 2i>0 hands, who receive in wages
about $15,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, oud
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St, Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos thore are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wnll of u room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
Bqusre grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. Tliese
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick nnd easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos.
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere, lhey nre
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample organs aro shown in the pavilion.
Tlie largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, ib at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected hero nt the
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
beeu placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument, The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
Sarlor favorite. The coses show won*
erful variety. Many of these aro of
rnre beauty and skilful workmanship.
Tho case which secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition nt
Philadelphia-is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured, CaseB for parlor organs are chaste in design and artistic in execution. Tho musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweet*
nesB of tone and. elasticity of touch they
are model instruments* while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the coses,

UEMliSlTOM,
(Continued, 1
"Sho is moro at home with those
sort of persoiiB than sho is with tho
county," Lady Freomnhllo snid.
Mrs. Merridew waa deeply llattorod
with tho confidence, and gave a must
cordial nssent. "It does give a sort of
unfeminiue turn of mind, though dear
. Miss Vernon is so universally respected,1' she snid.
This little dialoguo would have given
Catherine sincere enjoyment if she had
heard it. She divined it from the conjunction of Lady Freonnintlo's diamonds with Mra. Morridow'a lace, its
they leaned toward each other, and
from the expression of their eye.*.
On her Bide Mrs. Brown drew oon-
clusions quito as fallacious. "Miss
Vernon is well awaro how much the
young gentlemen owe to Brown," that
young lndy said, afterward, "und how
devoted ho is. Sho knows his value to
tho business, uud I am sure she sees
tlmt a share in the bunk is what he
has a right to look to."
This delusion, howover, Catherine
did not divine.
It was willi a reluctance and ropug-
uaiice indescribable that Hester had
come; but shu was there, by tho side of
her mother, who, a little alarmed by
the crowd, did not know what to do
with heraelf, until Harry Vornon interposed and led hor to tho corner of a
sofa, in tho very midst of the lino people, which poor Mrs. John, divided between the pride wliich was too proud
to tako a chiof placo and the con-
sciousuoBS that this placo was hor right,
hesitated greatly upon.   -
"I think I should like to bo further
off," she Baid, faltering ; " down there
somewhere," und sho pointed in the
direction of the Mrs. Browns, "or anywhere," she added, getting quite confused
"This is your proper place," said
Harry, out of hia niouatnche, with persistence.
The poor lady sat down in a nervous
flutter, in her black gown, which looked very nice, but had lusted iv long
time, and, though it hud beeu kept, so
to apeak, within sight of the fashion
by many frequent alterations, was
very different from tho elegant mix-
tur of velvet and sntin, fresh from tho
hands of a court milliner, which swept
ovor the greater part of the space. Mrs.
John hud a little cap made of a piece
of fine Mechlin upon her hair, whicli
was still very pretty, and of tho dark-
brown-satin kind. Her ornaments
woro of tho must modest description,
whereas tho other lady had a set of
emeralds whicli wore the admiration of
the county. Hester stood beside her
mother, vory erect nnd proud, in her
white muslin, with her pearls, looking
like a maid of honor to a mild, discrowned queen. A maid of honor in
such circumstances would stand a great
denl more upon her dignity than her
mistress Would be likely to do. This
was the aspect they presented to the
lookors-ou who saw them in that unusual Bininenco. When Catherino perceived where her poor pensioners were
placed she gave way to a momentary
impatience.
"Who put Mrs. John there?'' she
said to Edward, almost with auger.
"Don't you seo ho* thoroughly ont of
place she looks I You may think it
shows a fino regard for tho fallen, but
ihe would have boen much more comfortable at tho other end, among the
peoplo she knows,''
"I had nothing to do with it. I havo
not spoken to thom," said Edward,
with n certain sullcmiess. He was
glad to be able to exculpate himself.
and yet he despised himself all tho
more fiercely.
Catherine was vexed in a way which
she herself felt to be unworthy, but
which she aaid to herself was entirely
justified by tho awkwardness of tho
situation.
"I suppose it is Harry that lias done
it," sho said, her voice softened by the
discovery thut Edward, at loast, was
not to blame. "It must bo said for
him, at least, thut ho is very faithful
to his family."
Did she mean that he was not faithful ? Edward nsked himsolf. Did even
sho despise him '. But he cuuld not
now change hia course, or stoop to follow Harry's example, that oaf who
was inaccessible tu tlio fluctuations of
sentiment around .him, nud could do
nothing but cling to hiB one idea.
It cannot be said however that either
Mrs, John or Hester were nt their
case in their present position. It was
true, as Catherine had said, that with
the curate's wifo Mrs. John would
have been much more comfortable, and
this consciousness wounded tho poor
lady, who felt now that she wus out of
.place among tho people to whom she
was allied by nature. Sho was accustomed to tho slight of boing put in a
lower place, but to feel horsolf so completely out of her old position went to
her heart. She looked timidly, poor
soul, at thu great lady with tho emer-
ulds, rem em boring when she, too, used
to bo in the order of great ladies, and
wondering if, in those days, she had
ever despised tlie lowly. But when
sho thuB raised hor eyes, alio found
that the lady of the emeralds was look,
ing very fkedly at hor.
"Surely," she said, after a little
hesitation, "this must bo Lucy West
wood."
"Yob," said Mis. John, wistfully,
investigating the stranger with her
timid eyea.
"Then you have forgotten'Bridget
—Fidget V " snid tho other.
It wus a acl. - i name, and it brought
a glow upun Mrs, John's pule fiilo.
An old school-fellow ! She forgot all
the painful past Mid her present embarrassment, and oven hor daughter.
Hester stood for some timo in tho
maid-of-honor attitude bIio had been
in and contemplated tho conversation. She heard her mother sayt"This
is my girl, tho only one I have,''and
felt herself crimsoning, and courtcsy-
ing to some one she scarcely saw; then
the stranger added:
"I hnve threo here ; but I think thoy
lire all danoing.''
Yos, no doubt thero was dnncing going on, but Hester Vernon did not
tako nny part in it. She becamo tired,
nfter a while, of her post of umid-of*
honor. Her wonderful, indignant
carriago, the poise of her young hoad,
the proud air of independence which
was evident in her, called forth tho
admiration of many of the spectators.
"Who is ihat girl 1" said the older people, who only came once n year nud
Were not acquainted with tho gossip of
Redborough, "John Vernon's daughter? Oh, that was tho man who should
have married Catherine—ho who noar-
ly ruined the bank. And that is her
mother ? How good of her mother to
have them here." If Heater had heard
these remarks she would have had few
questions to nsk about hor fathor. But
she was unaware of the notico she was
attracting, placed thus nt the head
of the ureat drawing-room. The fold
ing*doors bad boen removed and tho
two roonii made into one.   The  girl
was in the iuust conspicuous place,
without knowing. Hev whilo figure
stood out against the wall, with lior
littlo mother in tlio foreground. She
stood for a long timo looking out, with
large oyes full of light upon tho crowd,
hor varying emotions vory legible inher
face. When a creature bo young and
full of life fuels herself neglected and
disdained, and sees others about her
whom lior keen eyes cannot help but
seeing are inferior tu herself, promoted
fur abovo her, enjoying what ia forbidden her, finding pleasure whero sho haa
none—yot is bound to tho spot and
cannot uscupo, it is natural that indignation should light fires in her oyes,
nnd that her breast should swell and
her young counteiiance glow with a
visionary scorn of all who seem to scorn
her. Thia sentiment is neither amiable
not desirable, but it gave a sort of inspiration to Hester—her hend so oroct,
slightly thrown back, her nostrils a
littlo dilated, her mouth shut closo, her
eyes largo and open, regarding in full
faco the world of enemies against
whom, wholly or singly, she felt herself ready to stand. All this gave a
character and individuality to her such
as nothing in thu room could equal.
But by and by sho got tired of standing, shut out from everybody, bidding
up her banner, Bhe stole away from
her mother's side, behind tho chairs, to
get somebody sho knew and could talk
to. Flesh and blood cannot boar this
sort of prido forever.
An old man was standing in her way
who mnde a littlo movement tn stop
Hester as she passed. "You will ex*
cuso an old friend, Miss Hostor," he
snid; " but I must tell you how glad
I am to seo ynu and yuur mother. I
have been looking at you both uver
since you came. She is very much
changed since I used to seo her, but
her sweet expression is the same.
That is a thing that will never
change,"
"I think I know you," said Hester,
with a shy frankness which was so unlike her liOBlilo attitude. "Did I not
seo you nt Captain Morgan's ; and yuu
said something to me about my mothor?"
"I hnd not much timo to toll you
then. I should just like to describe it
to you," Baid tho old clork. "I havo
never forgotten that day. I wns in a
dreadful state of anxiety, fearing that
everything waa coming to nn end ; and
tho only placo I could think of going to
wns the Whito House. Tliat waa where
your parents wero staying at the time.
No, no, they wore uot your parents
then; I think there was a littlo bnby
thnt died—"
"I waa born abroad,'' said Heater,
eager to catch overy word.
"Yes, yes, to be suro ; and she wns
quito young, not much older than you
are now. It wns in that long room in
the Whito House, with n window at
each end, which is tho dining-room
now. Yon will excuao mo for boing a
little long-winded* Miss Hester. It
was beautifully furnished, ns we
thought then ; and there waa a harp
and a i'iano. Docs your ninmnia ever
play tho harp now ? Nu, no, I ought
to remember, that hns quite gono out
of fashion. She hnd hor hair high upon
her hoad like this," said Mr. Rule* trying to give a pantomimic description
on tho top of his own grey head of the
high bows which had onco adorned Mrs.
John's. Sho hnd a white dress on, far
shorter thaii you wear them now, and
little slippers with crossed bunds, sandals they used to call them. Oh, I remember everything like u picture!
Ladies used to wear littlo short sleeves
in those days, and low dresses. She
had a little scarf around hor over one
shoulder. Whnt a pretty lady she was
to be sure ' I had been so wretched
and anxious, that the sight of her, aa I
came rushing in, hnd the strangest effect upon me. All bnnk business and
our troubles nbout money and the terror" of a run, which was what I waa
frightened for, seemed nothing but
ugly dreams, without uny reality in
them. I dure say you don't know,
Misa Hester, whnt 1 mean by a run ?"
"No, indeed," said Hestor, a little
impntiont; "but I should liko to know
what happened after."
"A run on the bank," said the old
clerk, "is the most terrible thing iu all
creation. A battle is nothing to it ;
for in a battle you can, at least, fight
for your lifo. It happens when the
partners or tho compnny, or whatever
they muy bo, have had losses, and n
rumor gets upngainst the bank. Some
limes it may be a long time threaten
ing, sometimes it mny get up iu a sin
ule day; but its soon as thu rumor gets
the length of a pnnic, everybody that
has money invested comes to draw it
uut, and every one that has a note of
tho bank comes for . his money. In
those days the Vernon's issued notes,
like all the other great country banks.
I wus in mortal terror of arun; I nover
wna in such n stnte iu my life. And it
wns theu, na I told you, Miss Hosier,
that I went to your mother. Of course
wc had not money enough to meet it—
the most solvent cuuld scarcely hopo
to hnve that nt a moment's notice.
Noxt day was the market day, and I
know, that us suro as life— I have
passed through many n troublesome
moment, but never one like, that."
And, as if cyen the thinking of it
was more than he could bear, the old
clerk took out his handkerchief and
wiped his forehead. Hoster had listened with great interest, but still with a
little impatience, For though the run
upon the bank would have interested
her at another time, it was moro thnn
hor attention was equal to now,
"But wns not my father here ns well
us my mother I'' said Hester, in her
elenr voice, uiicoiiscioub of any neod to
subduo it.
Mr. Rule looked at her with a s.tur
tied air, and expressed n half-involun
tury "Hush !"
"Your fathor?" he Baid, with a tone
of consternation. "Oh ! thu fact was
that your father—did not happen to bu
hore at the time."
Hestor waved her hand slightly, nsa
token for him to go on, Sho had a
feeling that these words wero of moro
importance than they seetned to be, but
thoy confused hor, and ahe did not as
yet seo what thia importance waa, Sho
remembered that she had thought so
when ho told her this incident onco
before.
"Whore wns I?" said Mr. Rulo,
"Oh yes, I remember ; just going into
the White House with my mind full of
trouble, not knowing what to do. Well
Miss Hester, when I found thnt your—
—I mean when I discovered thnt your
—mother was alone, I told her the
dreadful condition I was in—nobody
to say what to do, no chief authority
to direct, and market" duy to-morrow,
and a run us suro as futo. Now, you
know, wo could have telegraphed all
ovor tho country, but thore was uo
such thing as a telegraph then. I had
to explain it to hor just ns I have explained it to you, and I feel aure sho
didn't understand mo in the vory loast,
Sho only know thero wns money wanted."
