In the midst of tho unhealthy
excitement of the times, sufficient
attention has not boen bestowed on
tho energetic und hold resolution
taken by M. de Lesseps in publicly
informing M. Rouvier of tho absolute nocossity under which tho Panama Canal Company is placed of
procuring, on reasonable conditions,
tho funds necessary to complete tho
gigantic work undertaken under his
auspiceB. In clear terms M. do
lesseps has informed the government
that the permission to issue lottery
bonds seems tohiiu the only means
of procuring the money which he
requires to make the canal naviga
ble, under conditions which will
save him from ruining the entor-
p.'ce bo'orehand with the crushing
ciiarge3 imposed by the rates of interest at which ho has until now
been obliged to borrow. In fact,
at this moment tho.Panama Canal
is burdened with an annual payment of intorest of 74,000,000f
(which, at 4 per cent, would indicate a debt of §370,000,000). If
the undertaking wero to continue to
borrow on these terms it would have
to pay for the wholo capital necessary, as estimated at the present
time, H0,000,000f ($28,000,000)
annually—that is to say, that even
in completing the canal to the extent of making it navigable the enterprise would for long years not be
in a position to meet the payments
of interest falling upon it In these
circumstances what M. do Lesseps
asks is that he should bo supplied
with the means of borrowing at a
rate whicli would reduce the annual
interest on the whole capital that
must bo borrowed lo make tho canal
navigable by 50,000,000f (810,000,-
000), a year. The lottery bonds
could be issued at 4 per cent, and
an extra half per cont would provide a liberal Lottery and Redemption fund. Tho great question for
M. de Lesseps is to borrow easily
and cheaply, instead of with difficulty and at ruinous rates. M. de
Lesseps thinks that a lottery loan
is the only means. If, in fact, M.
de Lesseps issues obligations with
quarterly drawings and with prizes
as large and numerous as calculations allow, his future loans have
great chances of success, and he
may oven convert existing loans into lottery loans at reduced interest.
Lottery loans, then, would not lnore-
ly bringinto the company's cofl'ers
tho monoy necessary for the completion of the canal, but would considerably reduce the annual interest. Now M. do Lesseps has just
publicly declared that the French
Government and Parliament have
in their baiuirr the fate of tho enterprise, whioh has become a national
one. Tho failure of tlut enterprise
would bo a crushing nioi.il defeat
us well as an incalculable (iurincinl
disaster, and the shipwreck of ono
of tho two greatest glories of France.
If M. de Lesseps has beon forced to
borrow on ruinous terms, this, as he
says, is because a section of the
pross hus carried on n hitter, perfidious, and ofton derogatory compaign
against his undertaking. He now
calls on tho Government and Parliament to decido for the ruin or
success of the work. If the lottery
loan is refused, the canal, as his
letter virtually admits, recoives itr
dor.th blow. If it is accorded, everybody beliovos tho canal will bo made
and ho navigable in 1890. It seems
impossible that French statesmen
and politicians should incur the responsibility for a moral, material
and national disaster. The 110,000,-
OOOf (§22,000,000) uvailnblo on tho
1st of January suffico for only the
early months of the yoar. Thoro is
thus no timo to bo lost, for every
day's delay renders tho situation
more dillicult.—Paris Correspondence London Times.

LETTER OP THANKS.
Beklin, Dec. 20.—-The Crown
Prince Frederick William has written
a letter to tbo Prussian Grand Lodge
of Masons thanking that body for its
expressions of sympathy.
THE  LATEST THEOEY.
London, Deo. 20.—The lutofltpppu
Inr theory with regard to the hurried,
and in somo respects, covert consultation between the (ionium and Austrian
loaders, .is that Princo Bismarck is determined to forco Russia to show her
hand by tuking advantage of tho discrepancy between the czar's extensive
military preparations on the Austrian
frontier and the assertions of the Russian officials that no aggressive movement is intended. Whether this
theory bo correct or not, thore is certainly good ground for the belief that
somo scheme is on foot to precipitate
mutters to the end of prolonging the
season of peace or bringing about almost immediate war, and that the Cut
mau chancellor is its master-spirit.
FRIGHTENED JJY A GHOST.
Caledonia, Dak., Doc. 26.—Calo-
donia is terribly wrought up ovor a
ejhostly appearance which resembles
the body of ouo of the departed pioneers of that place, Chet Clarke. He
died a yean ayo, loavmg considerable
property, including a mill and a saloon. The spirit ia frequently seen
around tho mill. A sober, rcspecta-
b!o citizen met the ghost upon the
bridgo the other night and was so
frightened that ho jumped therefrom.
Another has seen tho spectre four
times in different places. The bartender at Mr. Clarke's old saloon saw
the spirit walk in tho door the other
night, pass diagonally through the
room, turn, and go along tho bar, then
disappear through the wall whero thore
wns neither door nor window. Everybody is badly frightened and vory few
venture out nights. Mr. Clarke wns
ono of Traill County's most respected
nml reputable citizens.
PEESIDRNT AND l'Or-E.
BALTiMOKE.Md., Dec. 27.—A special
despatch from Romo to tho Snn says
tho presont from President Cleveland
to the Pope arrived last night. The
present is a copy of the United States
constitution, beautifully engrossed and
richly bound in book form. It was
forwarded to Romo through Cardinal
Gibbous, who received it in Baltimore
from President Cleveland about
three weeks ayo.
THEKAFT BBBAKHCP.
New London, Conn. Dec. 27.—The
U. S. steamer Enterprise, which was
sent out by tho navy department to
search for tho abandoned timber raft,
returned to thia port to-day. Commander McGill reports that on Friday
lie came upon remnants of the raft 135
miles off Nantucket Shoals. The raft
had broken up and tho sea was covered with separated logs. He sailed
through tho floating timber all Friday
and Friday night, but could not find
enough of the raft holding together to
tow into port. Ho thinks thete is no
danger to navigation from logs an thoy
will soon drift apart and out of the frequented track of vessels. Logs wero
found 135 miks southeast by south uf
the Shoals and aro not in tlie route of
trans-Ailautic steameis.
OHtTROmLl AND THE CZAB.
London, Dec. 27.—-Lord Randolph
Churchill paid a visit to the czar at tno
Palace of Gatschma to-day. He wao
vory ostentatiously received, and spent
a considerable timo in.pRvafce conversation with the emporor. Tho object
of Lord Randolph's visit to Ihe Russian capital is still a mystery, but 'despite semi-ollicial denials and disclaim-
ors here, tho general conviction is that
he is charged with nnofticin! mission.
To-night being boxing night tho
theatres are, of cotirso, crowded to
their full capacity. Pantomimes are
produced on a moro costly scale tlinn
ever beforo, those brought out at Co-
vent Garden and Drury Lnne theatres
being simply gorgeous. At these two
theatres, as also at many of tho others,
a lurqe number of Amcriuans occupiod

LUCKY DESCENDANTS.
Dovek, N. II., Deo. 27.-Dr. W.
Weber stilted to-day that thoclaim of his
father, William Wuber, as one of tho
heirs to a plot of land, (ill acros in extent, valued at S20.000.000, located in
New York city south of Canal st., lias
boon proven. Tho said plot ia now
studded with massivo block* and buildings. It was bought in I65ti by Wilfred Weber, of Holland, who settled
on Manhattan Island a short timo previous. In 1674 Wobor leased tho land
to a kinsman, Wilfred Webor, jr., for
200 years. Dr. AVeber's father is of
tho soventh generation of Webor, sr.,
who originally owned the land. On
tho expiration of tho lease in 1870 the
land naturally reverted to the descendants (if the original Wilfrod Webor. For a few years past William
Weber and tho other descendants havo
been busily engaged in proving they
were direct descendants of the first
owner. Now that it is pmvod there
will bo a meeting of tho heirs in New
Yolk, ondanumy 20th, to complete arrangements for got ting possession.

run ht flail}* fritish Columbian
lVclnrHilay Ercutng, Ih'tr. 28, 18S7.
The president of the American
Security Co., New York, has been
figuring up the amount of lroodla
that has readied Canada safely during tho year from over the border.
The sum is $3,840,fr70. Looking
nt this vast aggregate of dishonest
spoil, it is no wonder tiio guarantee
compnny urges tlio U. S. sennto to
have the extradition treaty so
amended as to catch these scoundrels.
It is a shame and disgraco that they
should bo protected by law, or by
tho absence of law; but the fault
lies wholly with the American
government. Canada does not
want American boodlers or American boodlo. Sho has always been
anxious to have tho extradition
treaty enlarged so as to inolude
men of that class, and the obstructions which have prevented its enlargement have been interposed by
the United States congress.
The New York Sun estimates
that, on an average, 1500 fraudulent divorces are granted overy
year in the city of New York alone,
whereupon tlie Chicago Inter-Ocean
exclaims against the laxity of tlie
divorce laws throughout the United
States. It is well that the American press should vigorously discuss
this subject. It is n shame for a
great nation to provide such facilities for dissolving a contract that
ought to be regarded as most sacred,
and to this cause may be traced a
great deal of the social infelicity and
rottenness that prevails in that
country. If people know that the
marriage bond may bo dissolved on
payment of ""*2*> to a lawyer, nnd
that society will regard tlie act as
proper, they are apt to be careless
about making the contract. 1'roiu
one end of the country to the othor
may be found thousands of people
who have gone through the divorce
courts and married a second or third
time. In Canada divorce can bo
granted only by the senate, and,
consequently, divorces in this country aro rnre. Wo have always
thought that the laws rolatiug to divorce should be federal laws, applying jqually in all parts of tho nation. The American constitution
gives power to each state to make
its own divorce laws, ana the result
is great diversity and looseness.
What would be valid divorce in one
state is not divorce at all in another.
It is to bo hoped the good souse of
the republic may be roused to the
danger of theso things, and that
such laws may be passed as will put
a stop to the wretched practices
which are threatening to work ruin
to the commonwealth.
Ono result of President Cleveland's singular message has heen a
very freo discussion of tho present
American tariff. This discussion is
bringing to light many eccentricities
which have hitherto almost escaped
public notico. It is pointed out by
a correspondent of tho St. Paul
Pioneer-Press, for example, that the
millers of the state of Minnesota
alone pay annually nearly half a
* million dollars for jute grain bags.
The duty on juto is 30 per cent.,
notwithstanding which there is only
one jute mill in the United States,
and the duty is not sufficient to protect the mill from tho competition
of the Scotch manufacturers. It is
estimated that the millers of the
United States pay annually a tax of
about $500,000 to support this solitary jute factory, and the great bulk
of the bags is imported. Another
correspondent has been studying up
the question of wool. Statistics
covering a period of forty years show
in a very remarkable way that in
those years when there was a duty
on wool, the production of wool in
tho United States showed a great
falling oil'. The explanation of this
singular phenomenon is perfectly
simple Fino wool is not grown in
the United Stntos, but it is absolutely necessary to tho manufacture of
tine cloth. During high tariff
periods American manufacturers
found that they could not nll'ord to
pay tho duty on the line wnolo
which it is necessary for them to
import to mix with the native product, and tho manufacture of lino
woollen goods went into the hands
of foreign makers where a high
tariff did not exist. In tho tariff of
tho United States will bo found
other absurdities no less striking,
and the same eccentricities may bo
discovered in the tariff of our own
oountry. An honest and equitable
protective tariff is something that
yet remains to be invented. It is
quite impossible to adjust matters
so as to give every industry the proper amount of protection; and unless
this is done, some manufacturers aro
paying taxes for the purpose of putting money into the pockets of
others who happen to be in a business less favored by the circumstances of the country. And even if
all manufacturers shared alike the
benefits of protection, the cost must
come out of the people's pockets. It
Is a question open to discussion
whether the cost of maintaining industries that requiro high protective tariffs is not greater than all
the benefits that como from them.

saved.

Tho n.uHliromo Women of Sovosls,
Tlioro ia no better way to gctn view of
como really good-looking women tlinn to
cut a r-orosis lunch at Delmonico's, if yon
aro of tbo right sex to do eo, somo bright
afternoon.
s-'orosis, from its position as a pioneer
among the women's clubs of the country,
has been the butt of overmuch ridicule,
but as a plain, ordinary, everyday mutter of fact, it comprises m'its membership
somo of the prettiest and some of the
best-dressed women of Now York. Of
tire younger set, Jennie Juno's daughter,
VitlivUfbly, is afresh and fair example,
Willi one of the most attractive faces t lint
on.r ovorsees in tlio metropolis. Mme.
lici.ioi-irst'syoungordaughter's another
vory beautiful girl, aud Mme. Dcmorest
herself is a fino specimen of tho stately
dame.
Mrs. Lizzio \V. Champnoy, Ttifo of tho
artist, nml herself a well-known writer, is
u member am! a vory pieasant person to
look on, irnrl tieorgiiiCayvau, the actress,
is not accustomed to have hor beauty
cnllr'd in question.
His. Hammond, wlfo of Br. William
Hammond, is a handsome woman, nnd
M is. May iiiley .Smith, ono of tbo sweet-
cst-voiced oi tiro minor poets, bus an ovni
, faco ihat wits an artist, with soft brown
hair and tho most winning of smiles.
Tbo hrmhtest and pleasnntest thing nt
nny session nt which she is present is
foh. t.eorgo Hofimac, with her flmilihg
eyes anil wnvy gray hair, who has been
widely known in philanthropic work in

Wellington and ulury.
It has been said that in all the twelvo
I ;'•,- volumes containing tho "Wellington Despatches," tho word'"('lory" nevor
-e . tua. It was by n Frenchman, M.
toinienin, that thia remark waa first
Ulli'lO,
The Duko. hearing of it; thus reforrcd
to tire remark:
". omo Frenchman has said that the
word Duly it to be found in every page
ot my Despatches, and the word Glory
not once. This is meant, I am told, as a
reproach; but the foolish fellow does not
seo that if mere glory had been my object,
tlie doing of my duty must havejieen
tlio litmus."
This is rather hard on the Frenchman,
who probably intended no reproach in
hio remark, although he hod formed no
very high idea of Wellington aa compared with Napoleon, who lived in an
atmosphere of glory, and breathed snd
wrote the word continually. M. Conge-
nin thought that Wellington's loftiest impulse was the love of his country, and
summed up his character by calling him
"Pitt on horseback," Tha nearest approach to the use of the word glory, that
we remember, isin the letter written bj
the Duke to Sir John Flint, at Brussels
at threo in the morning of Juno lett
kit*.   This is the letter:—
"What do yon think ot the total defeat
of Ponaparte by tho British army? Never
was thero in the annals of the world so
desperate or so hard-fought an action, or
such a defeat. It was really tbe battle ot
tho giants. My heart is broken by tho
terrible loss I have sustained ot my old
frionds and companions, and my poor
soldiers 1 And I shall not be satisfied
with this battle, however glorious, if it
docs not of itself put an end to Bonaparte." .

Tho sensation of the hour in the city
is tho doings and sayings ot the tody of

In a few weeks she has achieved won.

Secretary of the Stock Exchange. She
has shown her latest finds to admiring
Archbishops and Bishops at the Mansion
Houso. -She has convinced Mr. Bryant
that gold-scorching is mora profitable
than watch-making. She bas held her

sire hns Successfully floated a company
Which rejoices in the familiar name ot
lli.lns. Wss Cornwall is generally sup-
poud In Victoria to have a heaven-born
genius for mining. The miners of Bal

Fool nud unanimously named her the!
representative In England. In Australli
alio has generally contrived to find ore
where everybody else failed.
In London the charming and astute
lily-minor bids fair to attract a large

A remarkable instance of heredity is
observed in the Young family in Salem,
Go. William Young, a carpenter by
trade, was born with middle and right
linifirr of his right hand together. Tho
jo.irts are perfect. His little baby was
born with the snmo two fingers grown
toother. Mr. Young has nine brothers
who hnvo natural fingers. Neither his

such mark, yet tlieir only sister has tbo

Tlio whisky element in this country
has been rapidly ascending in power,
and is Ihe one great peril threatening our
nation, but it is my opinion thnt neither
Democrats nor Republicans' can bo pro-
served in whisky. In ono section tlio
liquor syndicates bold the Democrats by
tho heard, in another Ihe Republicans by
the beard. Unless cheeked the grasp
will finally bo upon tho nation's throat.
Before their power can reach so far let-in
tako them by tlieir throats and break
their necks.
By acting together now it can bo dono
without bloodshed,, possibly only n few
streot riots. If delayed until the population grows it will becomo amousler too
poweiful to be put down.
High license entrenches itsolf behind
the cupidity of taxpayers.
Driving along a Btreet in Now York I
noticed an elegant building with a saloon
below and brightly lighted rooms abovo.
I asked tbo driver what the rooms abovo
woro used for. They wero gambling
rooms and apartments whero tho strange
woman dwells.
Low license asks for your son; high
license for your daughter. I will nover

Littlo Bessie was dying.
Hor father had struck tho child a blow
on tho spine, whilo insane from tho influence of rum, and confusion arid terror
overwhelmed tho frantic household, for
little Bessie was loved by all.
Among those of the neighbors who had
gathered in nmid the exeitomont wns tho
rnm-sellcr who had dealt out the poison
In that neighborhood for yenrs. He drew
near tlie death-bed, and heard a wntelier,
who was wiping tho death damp from tbo
child's'beautiful faco say: "That blow
has killed her." Littlo Bessie caught tho
whisper, and raising hor eyes, that were
growing largo in death, she fixed a dying
Srtze iiiion tho rum-seller und said, "You
id it!" and in a few minutes was dead.
That group novor forgot tho dying
child's charge, nnd tho rum-seller says
thnt it haunts him day and night; mid
yet ho continues to doal out tho fatal beverage to his victims. Every ono of us
who does not rise up ond assist in crushing tho brazen serpent is guilty hol'ore
God, and tho ruin-seller will say of us:
"They who nre not against us uro for us j"
and more than ono "Littlo Bessie" will
sny to us, "You did it."
Yes, tho wholesalo murdcrof innocents
will not cease until this traffic ceases nud

It must always bo a noteworthy fact
that tho great Book of the world is a story
of a life. Tho New Testament is n biography. Mako it a moro book of dogmas
ond its vitality is gono. Mako it a biography, and it is the true book of life.
Mako it tho history of Jesus of Naziirclli,
acd the world holds it in its heart for-
over. Not simply his coming orgoing,
not simply his faith or his death but tbo
living. The total lifo of Jesus is the
world's salvation, and tho book in whieh
his life shines orbod and distinct is the
world's treasure. Phillips Brooks.'

The substance of religion is tho substitution of Christ for tlie sinner. Christ,
currying our sins on His shoulders, nnd
burying thorn in tlio depths of tho son-
blotting out every sin; tho complete
adoption of tho soul; the setting the feet
on a rock—keeping the spirit safe—despite
hell and Satnn, till Uio duy Christ shall
come In tbo clouds of heaven, to take to
Himself nil for whom His blood was shod,
and who on His namo believe, and put
their trust in Him. Spuryeoii.

Is a common expression, often heard
from thoso who havo realized, hy per-
eonal use, tho curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. ** I cannot say enough.
in praise of Ayor's Cherry Pectoral, ho-
lieving as I -do that, but ror Its use, I
should long since havo died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
Abont six mouth 3 ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
-without obtaining relief. A friend advised mo to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at once. By continued uso
this medicine cured my cough, and* I
am satisfied, saved my lifo.—Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pootoral
for over a year, and sincoroly boliovo I
should have been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicino. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of tlio lungs,
for whioh Iliad almost despaired of over
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled ou my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies thoy
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayor's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicino
completely restored my health.—Lizzie

bloom iu tho gardens every month in

Black cut a beautiful rosebud from a
bush in hor garden, and several othor
people in town are said to have dono
tho samo thing. Other kinds of garden flowers aro still in bloom, in spots

is quite probable tho same will be llio
case during tho en tiro winter.
Incorrectly Kciiorlcd.
Tho Hon. Robert Dunsmuir states
that the interview copied iu tlio Times
of Saturday from tho Portland News
does him u great injustice. What tho
houorablo gentleman really did siy
was that it was a great pity tho diplomacy of 1840 lost to Britain such it
tino state as Oregon and the Territory
of Washington. Ho expressed himself
ns hostile to an unrestricted commcr
cial treaty, but favorablo to u reciprocal ono for tho freo interchange of tho
natural products of the soil of both
countries, as well ns animals—a treaty
similar to that in force from 1854 lo
1806. Such an one hu was suro would
largely benefit Vancouver Island. It
is well known that thoso arc Mr. Duns-
muir's views, and thnt ho has often so
expressed himself. He is a thorough
loyalist in overy ropeefc.—Times.
