A' New York despatch to tli* St.
Louis Globe-Democrat give* a most
interesting account ot * very singular case. Martin Hogan was * carpet layer, and like bis cooperatives
he had a habit of carrying tacks in
his mouth while at work On several occasion* the** tacks injured
hi* tongue end mouth, but a* tbe
injuria* ware s.ight and of brief
d-u-OiM* Hogan did not abandon hi*
dangerous habit. About two years
ago, he had a tack wound in the
right side of his mouth, but, as
usual, he applied to it a large quid
of tobacco which he usually had in
his mouth, and supposed it would
be all right in a few daya- But
the tongue began to swell rapidly,
and became intensely inflamed and
painful. It soon increased so in
size that it completely fllled the
mouth, and began protruding from
the lips, and kept on growing. Tbe
direction of. the growth was upward.
If it had been the other way tbe
patient could have lived but a abort
time. Food waa given through the
mouth in liquid form by depressing
the upper portion of the tongue and
passing ic in slowly. There was
some interference in swallowing, and
at time* it wa* painful, and more
frequently so as time passed. Before hi* admission to th* hospital
Hogan had taken a large amount of
iodide of potassium, and leeches hod
been applied to the tongue, but they
showed a disposition to let go their
hold before doing any good.. The
tongue had been punctured ih **v
eral place* and blood flowed freely.
The growth had been stopped by the
nae of Lugol's solution and pyrolig-
nooua acid, but these speedily spent
their force and the growth continued. Upon admission to the hospital Hogan wa* greatly emaciated
from lack of nourishment, and ha
had a strange feeling or presentment
that he was dying all the; time and
could not be reasoned out of it His
tongue protruded eight and one-half
inches, aiid wa* about lire timn a*
large ai* the normal sire. Several
experiment* were tried to reduce
the swelling, whioh had changed
the entire appearance and struetura
of the tongue, without any particular benefit resulting, and it wa* determined to remove the hypertrophied
mas* close to the lip*. The patient
was taken to the operating room and
ether was administered. When
properly anseathetised a large pair
of tong* with saisntefl edge* were
looked on the tongue near th* tin,
and an - assistant drew it so tbat it
was on a line with the patient's
mouth. Dr. Heifer, the operating
surgeon, stood' at the right side of
the patient. The chain of an ecra*
seur was passed around tbe tongue
near the entranoe to the mouth, and
the screw was gradually tightened
until it cut clear through the tiuu*
on a diagonal line. Paiising to the
other aide the chain was again applied to the tongue diagonally and
the left ride was cut off.' Th* two'
diagonal lines thus met at a point,
and the shape of .the tongue wu
roughly designed. 'Bnt'thi* did not
avail anything. The patient rallied from the operation, and in a
week tiie tongue had decreased in
aise to permit of an examination inside of the mouth. On the upper
part of the stump deep ulcer* were
found, and' aome of the tissue having been (craped off and submitted
to a micro*copical examination it
demonstrated the existence of an
epithelial oanear. The total extirpation of the tongue wa* all that
could be of benefit. The patient
waa again ansssthetiaed. S Ah incision, was rnade in the middle of
the lower jaw and oarried under th*
point - of the chin to the windpipe,
The flesh was removed from the
boa* and the lower Jaw wa* divided
iri the middle with a chain saw.
Than by separating the jaw hon*
atld using the knife carefully th*
baa* of »etoagu**>—erpos*d. The
tongue 'wa* drawn forward with a
prolonged forceps, and while the
tension was upon it an incision wa*
made in the flesh just above the
hyoidal bone at the hue. When
the blood spurted from the uteris*
as the cutting proceeded the vassal*
were pioked up .and ligatured, so
that there wa* but little hemorrhage.
The entire tongue wa* removed. The
disease had not extended to the bs**
and the tiuue appeared to be healthy. After the atump of the tongue
had been thoroughly waahed a pla
tinum wire, white hot, wa* applied
to it to check the (light oonng of
blood by sealing the exposed end*
of tha bleeding veml*. The jaw
bone wa* then joined where it had
been sawed through and th* wound
in the ehin and neek wa* closed
with oat-gut suture*, tha operation lasted nearly two hour*. Th*
shock  wa* unusually great, and for
several hourr after the patient had
been taken to the cot the indication!
were that b« would net'rally from
it. - A liberal supply of stimulants,
however, itrengthaned th, vital organ* and brought th* patient out of
danger. The wound is now healing
nicely. The patient shows a disposition to talk, but it requires a practiced ear to tell what he ssys. It
is expected h* will be able to leave
the hospital in about a week. The
hypertrophied s-trtioh of the tongue
thit wai removed i* nid to be the
largest on record.,

An IBportant Erent.
When the matter of efBcient armament came before the United
States congress for serious consider*
ation it was found that the nation
was not only destitute of heavy
a*s*e-.aad venoli, but without the
means of produoipg them. There
ire no works in the United States
capable of casting heavy steel gun*
or of producing tbe heavy steel
plate* neoeanry for a first-class
ironclad. The government, or,
rather, the secretary of war, haB
just taken a step that promises to
remove out of the way the chief
obstacle to tbe production of heavy
armaments. The cost of erecting
the naoestaiy works snd machinery
would, he tuch that no firm would
undertake the task without an assurance thst the appliance* when
provided would be kept in employment. The war department asked
tender* for the production of a very
larg* quantity bf steel, 1,300 tons
for the heavy guns and 4,500 for
armor plate*, and • Pennsylvania
firm, has obtained the oontract. It
was stipulated that the plant must
be ready for operation within SO
months, bnt the firm intimates that
it will he ready in a year and a
half. When thi* establishment has
been completed the. Utiited States
trill have within itself military resource* which will enable it to become independent of the vast establishments of Europe.

No one will suspect the people or
pren of Victoria of being led away
by patriotism from a contemplation
of their local interests. Throughout tbe length and breadth of the
province Victoria enjoys the reputation of being the moat selfish and
ungenerous place on earth. -And
thi* reputation is not confined by
any meu* to mainlandera, nor is it
•ven confined to persons who reside outside of the capital itself.
In the provinoial legislature not
mtay days *go Hr. Robt. Dunsmuir,
M. P. P., who is himself a resident
of Victoria, made the following
statement: "Viotoria has done nothing for the 0. P. R, and although
he lived in the city he knew it ws*
the mart sectional and (elfish plats*!
in the provinoe.    It want* to oet
■VIBTTHIHO   AXD   OIVK   NOTHING."
No words could more accurately ex-
preu the existing fact. It is honest,
unvarnished truth; and it is a truth
for which the whole oountry, and
above ahove all other place* the oity
of Weitminiter, has lieen made to
inner. One of th* latest development* ot thi* inordinate greed has
juat cropped out at the, capital - It
will be remembered that during.last
session of the bouse a resolution
wu passed requesting the government to use iti influence for the
purposa of compelling the transpa-
' ciflc iteamshipi ot the O. P. R. line
to call at Victoria or Esquimalt on
thtir outward and inward trips.
During the discussion on that resolution it wat stated that if the object of the motion oould be obtained,
Victoria would become practically
th* terminus of the steamship line,
beoause the freight *nd passengers
oould ba transferred there tothe
ialand' railway and ferried from
Nanaimo across to th* 0. P. R.
Everybody laughed at th* proposal,
which could have emanated from
no other source but the brain ot a
Victorian. In the Standard at
yuterday we observe an editorial
article which may, perhaps, reveal
the true purpose of the effort to
make, the steamships call at Victor!*. Th* Standard bu seen the
Bteu-shin time-table which appeared
ia thia journal a few days ago, and
it ta all broken up at th* discovery
that Viotoria does not anywhere

Printing  Company
IXiZicxxais.)
ON THB 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tha  CoiDRStAi,  Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company compessd of cltiseni
cf New Westminster, to be known as the
"British ColimWia Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern hu been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The objeot of
the new eoinpany ia to continue the publication of the BsYtniK CoMMhUH newspaper anil carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose Individual Interest It will be
to promote the development, sspecially
of tbe Mainland. Then will be no
slackening of thi, energy hitherto displayed ln the managtmnit of the establishment, and iti patrons may rely upon
receiving full valui for thoir money,
Tbe CoLunaua will oontinue to be entirely Independent ln hoth Dominic -nd
provincial politic*, and wUl devote Itself
to the advancement of snch schemes ai
may he oonsldend in th* pabllo Interest.
The concern Is now entirely separate Irom
any other business, the book ' and
stationery establishment In thii city
having been taken over by Itr. T. R.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
In hit own name ind for hll own benefit.
It is desirable thit a dally newspaper
ahould be maintained In this city, and
tha new company asks tor public patronage o* the ground that It I* eagaged In
au enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Coi*
nniax be judged on It* own merit! and
•upported only «o long as IU policy Is
•neehiUttwMhitt professions. Inconsequence ol thii buslnss* change atl accounts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that the book, of thi
former oompany may be adjusted ani
closed. Address all communications and

1873. GRIP! m
CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.  '
rpHE AIM OF" GRIP" is to set forth, in
1 In an Impartial andlndopenaentman-
ner, tho passing events of Canadian political and soolni life. Its Cartoons speak
moro definitely and moro pleasingly than
whole columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artlstlo style
of presentiiiga jiubjoct, tho whole situation is revealed at a glance, The success
of Grip shows how well this faot Is appreciated—Its Cartooimon the passing political events af tho country being even
more eagerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letterpress of the paper,—
though tho latter is equal to thalof any
similar publication on the continent.
The publishers of Grin are making ox
tensive Improvement:* for 1886, The old
cover Ih to fie discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprlso 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy tonod and calendered
pafor,—ovory number being so artistically
executed ae to compare favorably with
the best papers on tho continent. The
advts. will bo compressed and more systematically arramrod; while similar lm
provemonts will be made as to the letterpress, A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while tlu. Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
improvements ln the artistic department.
The price of Grip will hereafter be 93 a
year, which Is lower than that of any
paper of Its kind In America-most of
them selling for 15,-. Single numbers of
Grip will be 10 cents,
Twice a year, at Midsummer and Christ*
mas, a beautiful speoial number will be
Issued, the number bf pages being Increased, and pleasing features Introduced,
particulars of which will bo given In preceding Issues. These numben will be
presented to subscribers without extra
charge.
