SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Prtrtially successful experiments
in signalling by means of olectrio
lights flashed on clouds hnvo been
made by British officers at Singapore. A message of four words was
read from an out-going vessel at u
distance of sixty knots, but tho reply
escaped notice.
SfcAVE-Blil'ISXlJliNT I.NSECTS.— TllO
curious fact has been demonstrated
by Sir Jolm Lubbock that certain
kinds of ants are. unable to exist
without keeping other ants as
slaves, though why this is so ho has
not found out. On removing the
slaves from a nest of fifty slave-
holding ants, ho found thnt the latter immediately commenced to die
off and were speedily reduced in
number to six, when the slaves
were returned,   and  the mortality
A Germinating Science.—According to Horatio Hnle, ethnology,
or "science of the races of man." will
become a true science only when tbe
tribes aro grouped by the evidetico
of language. A scientific treatise
on ethnology will commence, like a
treatise on chemistry with the pri
tnary elements, which are the linguistic stocks. It will determine,
as far as possible, the mother-tongue
-and the orginal geographical center
of each stock. It will describe the
moral and intellectual traits and the
physical characteristics of the people. It will ascertain their mythology, their social system, their industries and arts. It will trace
their migrations, their intcrming-
lings with other septs and tho moral and physical changes caused by
these wanderings and mixtures, and
by climate, soil, food, manner of
life and all other influences. And
Anally, from ascertaining what has
been, it will seek to determine what
is to come, and to show us something of the future which the human
species, in its various divisions, mny
expect to attain.
Seals with Ballast.—Tho seals
are carnivorous mammals divided
into two classes—the Phocae, or
common seals, with rudimentary
ears, and the Otariae (sea lions,
bears, elephants), which have tho
ears developed. In a late paper
before some British naturalists, hr.
A. J. Harrison stated that the
Otariae, which inhabit tho waters of
the Southern hemisphere, aro supposed by the fishermen to have an
internal pouch in which rounded
stones aro carried to enable the animal to sink below the sea's surface
when fat. Observations havo shown
however, that tho so-called "ballast-
bag" is only tho stomach. To account for the presenco of the stones
in this organ it has been suggested
that they are intended to aid in tho
trituration of food, while other persons believe that they have been
accidentally introduced with the
food or in play. Similar rounded
stones havo been found in seals
sea-lions which have been confined
in London, and tho stomach
of a Newfoundland seal which died
at Olifton in 1886 continued gravel,
nuts and pieces of stick.
The Organic Cycle.—The idea
oftho indestructibility and ceaseless change of matter leads to curious reflections. Sir Henry Thomson has remarked that when an animal body decomposes, whether the
process occupies four hour,
four months, four years, or
even four thousand years,—any one
of theso periods being quite possible,
—those elements which assume the
gaseous form mingle at once with
tho atmosphere, and aro taken up
from it without delay by tho eveu-
open months of vegetable life, liy
a thousand pores in every leaf the
carbonic acid which renders tho atmosphere unfit for animal lifo is
absorbed, tho carbon being separated and assimilated to form tlie vegetable fibre, which, ns wood, mattes
and furnishes our houses and ships,
is burned for our warmth, or is stored up under pressure for coal. "All
this carbon has played its part, anrl
many parts, in its time, ns animal
existences from monad up to man.
Our mahogany of to-day lias been
many negroes in its turn, and be'fot'e
tho African existed wns integral
portions of many a generation of extinct species. And when the tnblo,
which hns borne so woll somo twenty
thousand dinners, shall be broken
up from pure debility and consigned
to the firo, thonco it will issue into
tho atmosphere onco more ns carbonic acid, again to bo devoured by
tho nearest troops of hungry vegetables—green peas or cabbages in a
London market-garden, say—to bo
daintily served on the tablo whieh
now stands iu that other table's
place, and whore they will speedily
go tho making of "lords of creation."
And so on, again and again, as long
as tho world lasts.

HUSH AUTONOMY INEVITABLE,
London, Jan. 22.—The cabinet, nt
its meeting this week, had nlso under
consideration the Lund Transfer Bill,
Tho Lord Chancellor urged a further
amendment embodying L rd Uiudolph
Churchill's Sunderland proposal for
abolishing tho powor of settling lands
upon unborn persona. But it was dismissed, nnd the bill will.bo introduced
substantially iu the form in which it
left tho House of Lords last yenr. It
was agreed, however, that the government will, if necessary, accept such an
amendnit-nt upon pressure in the
Houso of Commons rather than place
a provision in the bili now. Tho liberalization of tho elective clauso uf tho
Local government Bill nud tho enlargement of the scope of tho Land
Transfer Bill aro regarded as the dangerous passages of next session. One
of the oldest and certainly one of ihe
Bhrewde-it Liberal Unionist members
of the House of Commons, who for obvious reasons does not wnnt hia nnme
or constituency mentioned, said in au
interview to-day regarditig the Home
rule speech of SirMipluiel Hicks-Beach:
"1 now consider Irish autonomy as inevitable, nud think that its precise
form nnd tlio moment ut which it is to
arrivo are iho only points still left
open to question. 1 consider it inconceivable that wo can ever return to tho
position with regard to Ireland in
which We stood before Mr. Gladstone
produced his memorable bills. The
controversy of tho lust two year* hns
mado some great change in the Irish
government unavoidable, and the time
has como when acrimonious personalities on boih sides should give place to
dispassionate reasoning on the admitted evils of tho existing system, and
tho merits of the plan by which it is
proposed to replace it. Whnt, to judge
by my experience of half a century,
Beems highly probable is that unless
the liberal party can manage either by
a general oleotion or otherwise, to reestablish its- hold upon Irish policy,
tho Tories will repent tho experiment
of 18(17 and dish the Radicals as in
that memorable year thoy dished the
Whigs."

■.Hilar Ivearlw. Ju. S3, IM,
The Times says it is rumored that
Oapt. McCallum, the stone mnn, will
contest the commons election with
Mr. Prior in Victoria. A rumor
has reached this city that Hon.
Amor DeOosmas will also stand for
the seat. Not long ago it was believed that Mr. Prior would be unopposed, but as time goes on, candi
dates seem to be becoming quite
plentiful. According to the Colonist
Mr. Prior is the certificated tory
candidate; Capt. McCallum will run
on the liberal ticket of course; and
if Mr. DeOosmos runs at all, ho will
probably bo an independent.
Details of a most heartrending
kind keep coming in respecting the
results of the unprecedentedly severe
weather which has been prevailing
in Minnesota, Dakota, Nebraska and
other frigid states. The number of
people who have lost their lives by
the cold is alarmingly great, lu
some instances whole families have
perished together, and school houses
have been found in which were the
corpses of the school mistress and
her entire school stark and stiff in
death. And the end, it is feared,
has by no means been reached.
Thero are regions lying at a considerable distance from the routes of
travel from which no report has yet
been received. In many places the
supply of fuel is nearly exhausted,
with scarcely any prospect of its
being replenished. The weather,
too, remains as cold as over. Tho
middle of winter, as winter is reckoned in these states, has scarcely
been passed, and tho unfortunate
people who have to endure the priva-
tionsandsufferings of the seasonlook
forward to a month of winter yet.
The situation is one of peculiar sadness, and must surely affect perceptibly the future drift of immigration.
It is worthy of remark tbat in Manitoba and the Canadian northwest,
some of which is a long way north
of the regions so blasted by excessive cold, there have beon scarcely any deaths from freezing at all.
There seems to be considerable
conflict of opinion respecting the
fate of the present government in
Great Britain. Undoubtedly there
hu been a disagreement between
the regular tories and some of the
liberal-unionists who have been supporting them. The liberal unionists
left the liberal party because that
party's Irish policy seemed, in their
opinion, to threaten the dismemberment of the empire. They believed
the majesty of the law should be
upheld at all cost, and that Gladstone's scheme of homo rule would
certainly result in absolute independence for Ireland. But there
was only one alternative. If the
liberal polioy did not meet the views
of the unionists, there was nothing
for them but to aecept the tory
policy. Many of them now regret
to find that the tory policy, whioh
they have been supporting, has accomplished nothing at all for the
pacification of the Irish people.
The only way to pacify Ireland is to
remove the grievances which exist
in that Unhappy country, and. until this has been done we apprehend
that Ireland will continue to be a
source of weakness to the empire instead of a source of strength. The
dissatisfied liberal-unionists are beginning to perceive that the tory
polioy will not accomplish what
they expected of it; and unless tho
policy undergoes considerable modification, it is quite likely the government will be forced to resign.
Notice has been given that at the
coming session of the provincial
legislature application will be mado
for a new city charter. If this
notice is followed up, wo hope the
charter will not bo prepared without very careful reflection, so that
It may be as free as possible from
objectionable features. We think
the time has arrived when the limits
of the oity should be considerably
extended. The suburbs have been
filling up rapidly during the past
few yews, and now contains quite a
number of families who are, in overy
tense except in municipal govern
ment, a part of the oity. A large
number of suburban lots have
been divided up into town lots during the past summer. Peoplo living
beyond the present limits often complain that while they are regularly
paying taxes, they reeeive scarcely
anything from the government in
the way ef roads or other local improvements. Their interests being
entirely identified with those of the
city, t£»y would receive very muoh
greater consideration from it than
they may expect to reeeive while remaining beyond its limits. Tho
time will come when some of our
handsomest residences will be found
oa the top of the hill, and there will
be > lively demand for streets and
gas and water. The extending of
the limits would enlarge the revenues of the eity, which are now
quite unequal to the demands made
upon them. While changes are
being made, we hope the name of
the citjr will be shortened by drop,
ping tbe "New." Some time ago
the Coiumbiak adopted the praotice
of writing limply "Westminster,"
and the suggestion has met with a
great deal of-favor. The name is
long at but, and absurdly long as it
now stands. The change would
create no confusion, and we hope
this matter, although of comparatively small importance, may not be
overlooked in the new charter.

i Camp IlaldedatNiiht-An Elephant ta
i An instance ol elephantine ferocity,
combined with stealth and shrewdness,
uDi't'nrre.l on our trip. Six of US were
ii'iittcrnl through a wood In search of
, j'ikiih ol' the presence of elephants, when
s ''solitary" sneaked out of a 'mule
whore lur hnd been hiding and rushed
uprrn nry liorsr*. 1 was two miles away,
Imt one nf thu natives saw the performance. He said the elephant broke cover
ns stealthily as a. man, carefully approached the lrorsrty and .was only a few
yards away wh'n discovered. Then he
trumpeted and' inadt* a Irush. His sudden appearance seemed to strike the
horse with terror, ahd he made no move
to escape. The gnat trunk, held aloft as
the beast charged, struck the horso a
"side wipe" and knocked him flat, and
lie wns no sooner down than the elephant
knelt npon him and kneaded him into
bloody nnlp. When his vengeance was
satisfied ho rose np ud' retreated to the
same thicket, sneaking along as If he
was sedan]*, to hide his trail. It wns an
hour later when I reached the spot, and
I wns so nngry over the death of my
steed thnt nothing the men could say
would sto' ine from entering tbe thicket
iu search of the destroyer.
.lire follower! roe, hearing a gnn, and
both of irs were ready for any trick the
beast mi'lit be up to, bnt we were too
Into. We found the spot where he had
sto nl for hours, and from which lie had
' arl'ieil out to attack the horse, but he
j iiriil quietly sneaked oS. The elephant,
when pursuing an ordinary course
through the forest leaves a broad trail
behind him. He breaks down branches,
uproots small trees, and the prints of his
, big feet could be followed on horseback
nt n gallop. This fellow had gone off so
roitly that we were hill an hour in pick-
iiii! up histrnil. Tliere was not a broken
bianch, and he had-set his foot down
, wilh the utmost care, and selected the
hardest soil. After getting a quarter of
a mile away he had selected a rocky
ridge to travel on, and we soon lost him
entirely.
Our camp-was about threo miles from
tho spot where the horse was killed. We
always hnd one guard and a couple of
tires, nndas there was only tha wild beasts
to look out for, we had slept in perfect
content.
On this night, soon after midnight, tho
feuard awokome, and stated that some
■langcr menaced the camp. He had
heard what he believed was a body ol
men lurking about, and the bullocks
' seined greatly excited. The camp was
r roused as r;uietly as possible, the fires
u ei e allowed to burn low, and in ashort
Millie I hu statements of the sentinel were
veiilied. .Somebody or something was
linking about. We were iu the lion
"ountry, but tho movements were too
Aicavy for tho king of beasts. The noisn
passed clear around tho camp and back,
nml theu ull was quiet. We were under
.inns for half an hour,and then, all being
still, we lay down, and all but the sentinel were soon asleep. An hour later,
he suddenly, as if shot from the gun, the
old solitary of the day charged into our
camp, truinpetinglike the blasts from a
locomotive, and evidently in a neat
rage.   It was he who had been lurking
! .ibout lor two or three hours.   He had
..ipproached the camp as carefully as a
man could walk, and had passed around
it to locate everything and decide on a
,' :nt to diarize from. When we got the
Mai in, lie placed himseil in the shadow
oi some bushes, and the natives, who
examined the spot, said ht stood there
lm nn hour and a hall without moving.

Uloody and destructive work followed
tire charge of the elephant He stepped
on and crushed a sleeping native, picked
ii s i ond up and dashed bim tothe earth
n Corpse, ind broke tht back ol a third
v.ho was trying to aet out of hia wsr,
I lo waa soon among tht bollocks,koock-
ing tliem right and left with hit terrible
blows, and just then I got my gnn ready.
II is charge had been totuddtnand&rrce
that we were all demoralised Jor two or
three minutes. Fortunately tor ut all,
some one had the tease to throw light
brush on ont ol tht dying Arts ind
started a big blase. ThitMeatd to disci riicert tht elephant aod ho .showed
signs of retrtatiof.  lolbiakt .was «n-
. rouruged by two of our outlooks, .who
'■ .lashed at him for* fight,and raked him
>/ severely with their stout horns.
fi I waa dancing atontwilting- to get a
shot, and l'U tell you .what I saw tbat
elephant do.  Ht picked up a bullock
..cigliingatlaast 900 pounds, and Ibat
with his trunk alone, and twang him
I .iloit aa easily as you can lift an axeovtr

minute, and then flung him clean ovtr

AmiA' the great excitement caused fa
thia section over the recent discovery
of gold, It now happens that fuel is to
be added, to the llauies try a Mr Novels
who found' while 'Crossing a goose,
several' particles of pure gold in its
craw.
Tke gooso was ono of a pair that
Mr. Walter Sevels. a substantial citizen of Lewis County, hail recently
brought from. Oregon uml .placed on his
ranch here.
lta mate from somo enuso died, and
this one being valueless alone, was
killed, and whilo Mrs. Novels was
dressing the fowl, uotireil some bright
substance in tho contents of the
craw.
Calling her husband, nn Investigation
was mado, and the shining  substance
proved  to bo particles■ of gold, whieh
' amounted In value to about one dollar.
And what now troubles Mr. Novels
Is to find the place whore tho goose
cot tho gold, while nmnj- ot Iris neighbors wonder it this Is not tho veritable goose that laid Iho goldon egg.

Phonographem I'oinjr.ain'tlirit scarcely
rjno I'nglish word in a thousand is spelt
correctly—that is, all its letters are not
sounded precisely as they are in the
alphabet. And such criticism is perfectly just, though from the force ol habit,
we seldom notice the faulty orthography
of common words. But if we meet
proper names, of persons or places, their
eccentric spelling is more observable,
and sometimes even puzzling. Highly
educated persons often hesitate in pronouncing a proper name which they see
for the first time. This remark especially
applies to some aristocratic surnames, as
will he seen by the introduction of the
sulr oinr'd, with tlieir recognized pronunciation:—
Clanranalrl must be sounded as if written Uanronald. Derby, in speaking
either of the peer, the town, or the race,
should always be called Darby. Dillwyn
is pronounced Dillon, with the accent bn
the lirst syllable. In lilyth the th is
dropped, and the word becomes Bly.
l.yvudeu is pronounced as Livden, and
1'epys ns l'epis, with the accent on the
first syllable. In Monson and I'onsonby
tliu lirst o becomes short u, and they aro
called Munson, Punsonby. In Blount
the o is silent, and the word is spoken as
Blunt. Brougham, whether referring to
the late illustrious statesman or the
vehicle named after him, should not be
pronounced as two syllables—Hrawham
or liroohaiu—but as ono—Broom. C'ol-
quliaun, Duchesny, Jlar'orilrnuks, and
Cholmondely—four formidable names to
the unitiated—must bo called Cnboon,
Dukarn, Marshbanks, ami Chumlev,
Cliolnieley is also called Chuinlay,
Mnnnvaring and M'l.eod must be pronounced Monnering and Macloud.
The dual x in Moivneux and Vaux is
sounded, but the final x in Devereux
aud Des Vaux is inuto. Iu Ker tbe e
becomes short a, and the word is called
Kar; it would be awfully bud form to
pronounce it Cur! In Wnldegrave the de
Is dropped, and it becomes Walsrnve,
with the accent on tho first syllable.
Berkeley, whether referring to the person or place, should be pronounced
llarkley. Buchan is called Bukun;
lieauclerk, or Beauclark, is Beauclaro,
with tlie accent on the lirst syllable; and
Beanvoir as Ueevor. Wenivss is pronounced as Weems, and Willoughby
D'Ereseby as Willowby D'Eieshy; Mt.
John must bo Sinjin ns n surname or
Christian name; when"applied to a
locality or n building, it is pronounced
as spelt, Saint John. Montgomery, or
iUotiUuinerie, is pronounced Mungum-
ery, with Ihe accent on the second syllable. In Elgin g takes the hard sound
it has in give; in Gilford and Gifliird it
lakes tbe soft sound as in gin—as it nlso
does in Nigel. In Conyghiitn tho o becomes short u, and the name is called
Cunningham. In Johnstone the t Is
silent. Strachan should be called
Strewn; Heathcote, Hethcut: and Hertford, Hartford.
The av is dropped in Abergavenny,
-which is called Abtrgenny; and the n
ln Penrith, which is called Perrith.
Beauchamp must be pronounced
Beocham, Bourne, Bum; and Bourke.
Bulk. Gower, as a street, is pronounced
as it is written, but, as a surname, it becomes Gor. Eyre is called Air; and Du
Plat is Du Plah. Jervis should be pronounced Jarvis; Knollys as if written
-Knowls, Menziesasif written Mynjes;
and Macnamara must be pronounced
'Macnnmarah, with the accent on third
syllable, Sandys should be spoken as
one-syllable-Sands; ft. Clark is also
on" wnnt-Sinclair- nnd St. I.eoer Is
called Selleger. Vaughn ta spoken ss
one syllable—Vawn; and Villebois ta
Vealbwoh. Villiers is called Villors,
with tlie accent on the first syllable;
Trywlrit is called Tirritt; andTollemaehe
is pronounced Tolltnash, with no accent
on either syllable. The pronunciation
of a dead Conservative Premier's title it
Beckous'e'd, Bethune should bespoken
as I'i'ctoii, and Milnesas Mills. Charteris,
by those moving.in wlmt Jeemet rails
the "Hupper buckles," is pronounced
, Charters, and Glamis is called Giatns.
ttieoghegan is always spoken as Gugan,
anil Uuttaven Is pronounced Itivon.
It will be observed that most of the
al ove names are much abbreviated iu
their pronunciation, as recognized by
"society"—a fact which forms one of tbe
many protests against the cumbrous
nature oi English orthography.
Come time In the sixteenth century
there flourished a Queen of Scotland
called Mary Stuart, Rumor savs that
she was good looking, but such detailed
information as can lie obtained tends to
throw a doubt on the point. If ahe had
lived in the present dav ahe would probably have figured in the divorce court,
and might have been indicted as an accessory to the murder of her own husband. Sho harbored designs avowedly
hostile to the Government of her country; which was nlo a woman, having the
luck to get hold of her, clapped her Into
firison. She continued to plot against
lie said government, and was put to
death. The Dowager Marchioness of
Huntley Is now running a Women's Tercentenary Offering to tire-memory of this
exemplary female, ami invites subscriptions of from one shilling to ten shillings
forthe purposo. I don't krrow why any
Englishwoman of the nineteenth century
should contribute to such nn object; but.
if iiuy'do. I hope, with llie light ol
another Women's Offering upon us, the
testimonial will tako the form of a statue
of Lord Darnley.
Mas. Waldo (of Boston)—"I have a
letter from your Undo James, Penelope,
who wants us to spend the suininor on
hie farm."
Penelope (dubiously)—"Is there any
society In tho neighborhood'.'"
Mrs. Waldo—"i'vo heard him apeak ol
tlio Hotsteins and Guernseys. 1 prcsunu
thty are pleasant people."
Win (to husband)—"Motboe wants tc
coma and make us a visit, John; but 1
havo written her that just ut present,
while baby is teething, it wouldn't be
.convenient. It I give you tho letter will
you think to mail it?"
Husband (with an air ol perfect confidence)—"Well, I should say I would!"

Is a common expression, often board
front thoso who havo realized, by personal use, the curative powers of Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral. ** I cannot say enough
In pralio ot Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing U I do that, but xor its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About bIz months ago I bad a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me ot sleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Peotoral.
I did so, and am happy to say tbat it
helped me at once. By continued use
-this medicino cured my cough, and* I
am satisfied, saved my life. —Mra. E.
Coburn, 16 Second St., Lowell, Mass.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicino. It haa cured
me of a dangerous affection of tho lungs,
for whlchlnad almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Provinco of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
whlon settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayor's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health. —Lizzie

Thero is no reason why the steamers
should not resume tlieir trips from Victoria to this city. The ice has almost
disappeared from tho river and the
odd pieces floating round are in a very

A well known contractor says thero
will be much more done in the way of
building operations this coming summer than during the past season.
Several very fine brick blocks on Columbia street will be among tho lirst

Tho steamship Parthia arrived in
Vancouror yesterday, from Yokalmmti,
with freight and passengers. Slio did
not cast anchor at cither Victoria or
Esijuimalt on the road up, but mcrt-ly
whistled for a pilot who soon went on
board. Neither mails or passoiifiors
were landed at cither places. Thu
work of discharging commenced this
morning and is being rapidly accomplished. Tho cargo for the return
trip will bo composed principally of
flour.

A Steamer To>Morrow.
The ateamer Dunsmuir will arrive
in port'.o-morrow, wind and weather
permitting. On Saturday sho entered
the month of the river but tinding the
buoys had boen moved out of position
by the ico, gave up the attompt and
ran into Vancouver. Tho marine department should loso no time iu getting
tho buoys placed iu their proper position again, as navigaiion cannot be resumed with safety until such is done.
Tho Weather.
Tho weather yesterday morning was
quite cold and it scorned ns if nnothor
frosty wave was about to blow down
from tho mountains, Towards evening
the thermometer began to rise and
abuut dusk snow commenced to fall.
About 9 o'clock the snow turned to
rain and tho thermometer roso to It2"
but subsequently fell soveral degrees
below freezing point, and in a short
time trees, bushes and sidewalks wero
covered with ico. This evening tho
thermometer registrred 35° with every
indication of a chinouk before morning.

One of tho most remarkable feats in
telegraphy is announced in our despatches to-day. A cable from Mr.
Norman, special correspondent of the
Pall Mall Gazette, was received yesterday at the office of that journal in
London, Eng., four minutes from tlio
timo it had been handed into the Vancouver oflice for transmission. The
distance travelled by wire and cable is
in tho neighborhood of lu,000 miles,
and the message was required to bo
repeated twice on tho way. This is a
record that will be very hard to bent
and is really a wonderful performance.
Another Bunjlnrj*.
Sometime during last night Millard's
provision Btore, in Webster's block on
Front street, was broken into and burglarized. The robbers effected an entrance from tho rear of the building,
by breaking a window through whieh
they passed into the store. The amount
ofgoodsstolcnU not-procisoly known but
a quantity cf baonn, some candlos and
canned lobsters are missing. When
tho rohbery waa discovered this morning the foot prints on tbo snow near
the window were quite fresh, but the
thaw had rounded off the corners
which spoiled the chances of using
them as a clue. Who ever tho burglars were it is cortain they aro not old
hands at tho business, and tho probability is that somo starving Chinamen were promptod by hunger to commit tho robbery.
 •—*--•>	
The Company Dltibamls,
a short time bnck two mon named
Dinearand McGenry, formed a grand
combination fur the purposo of giving
legerdemain performances to the untutored settlers who inhabit the banks
of tho Fraser. Tho scheme lonked
bright to commence with, there was
lots of room in the country for such
exhibitions, but somehow tho groat
wizards came to grief, either through
incompetency or lack of moral sup-
porti Mr. McOeary, who by tho way,
formerly flourished under the windy
namo of Startweather, acted as advance agent manager and treasurer for
the company, Dinear being magician.
The peaceful little village of Langley
was the lirst place visited by thoso
gentlemen, but tho weather was in-
clemont aud tho villagers pcrferred tho
cosy fireside an 1 bleesful joys of home
to the dark and uncanny ways aud
tricks of the necromancer. The result was that financial failure stared them in the faco on tho tirat night
of their adventure, Soveral other
points fworo visited but with liko success, or-rather failure, until Port Hammond wus reached, and there tho luck
changed. The citizens turned out
nobly tn witness tlio sleight of hand
tricks, and thu result was that tho
handsome of @2 was taken at tho door.
This was the oxact amount required to
bring tho wizards back to Westminster,
so boarding tlio train they returned
homo and went into wintor quarters
at McOeary's mansion in the swamp,
highly disgusted and dejected with the
outcome of the onco promising venture. Dinear owned a considerable
amount of bedding, blankets and other
traps which he moved into McOeary's
shanty, and mnde a permanent residence there himself. Everything went
merry aB possible until yesterday when
Dinear was presented with a board bill
for $5.50, which, boing a little short of
cash at tho time, he wns unable to pay.
McOeary who would stand no trifling,
politely bowed Dinear out of the houso
and kept tho bedding to recoup him
for tho amount of provender his boarder hsd demolished. Dinear complained to tlio police to-day of tho omrago,
and wished the *Jm*f to bring McOeary
to account for his actions, hut as such
eases do not come under tho jurisdiction of tho polico ho wns advised to
consult a lawyer on tho subject.
The -Kunrillati Libel.
Tlio libel case, Hon. Jno. Robson
vs, J. K. Suter, was heard in Victoria
to-day. Hon. Theo, Davie appeared
for the prosecution, nnd Hon. A, N.
Richards for the defence, At the
time of goiug to press the jury had
not agreed upon a verdict.
The British Columbia Edition,
Tho special edition of the Ban Fran*
cisco Journal of Commerce, devoted to
tho interests of British Columbia, has
just arrived, and we confess that it
greatly disappoints us. In form it is
most unwieldy, and is not likely to be
preserved by anybody who receives it.
While it contains a groat deal of interesting and useful information respecting a portion of tho province, tho
illustrations aro simply disgraceful.
This is one of tho features to which
Dr. Gray gavo special prominence. Ho
assured tho people that tho illustrations would be quite superior to those
usually found in a commercial journal.
As a rule they detract very much from
tho value of tlio issue, for thoy aro
neither accurate nor attractive. Somo
of the illustrations iu tho Colonist's
Wostminster numbor were bad enough,
bnt theso nro outragoous. If there
had been no illustrations at all, the
paper would havo boon very greatly
increased in value. Wo hope* this iB
the lust timo our city council, or any
other corporation in the province, will
bo foolish enough to invest in one of
these stupid ventures. The value of
these special editions of outBido advertisers, whose solo object is to make
money, is very small. They are known
as "dead advertisements," and as snch
very seldom result in increased business. We notice that the Journal of
Commerce makes a special attack upon
the local prosB of Nanaimo and Vancouver. This attack was doubtleBS
promptod by tho hostile attitude of
tlie press of those cities tothe journal's
special edition. Such conduct is mean
and contemptible, and unworthy of a
journalist.

Coroner's Inquest.
Before Coroner Ferris, J P.
On Saturday night at 8 o'clock the
inquest ordered by Coroner Ferris, on
tho body ot tho Indian woman Susie,
who was found dead on the sidewalk
near the Royal City mills, took place
at the Cleveland hotel.
Chief of Police Devlin watched the

A jury waa empanelled with Mr. Ed.
Port as foreman, who, after viewing the
body, returned to the hotel and heard
the #ithessos produced.
Lily, an Indian woman, swore that
on Friday evening sho and Susie were
nt the Royal City mills storo wherothey

a short conversation and he then pulled
out a bottle of whisky and asked them

Susie took sonic. Tho man and Susie
thon sat down on n box and Lily went
away and left them, Sho did not see
Subio again until sho was brought

whom Susie stayed with,
After hearing the evidence of Thos.
Casserley, Wm. Henderson and Wm.
Hall, as to tho finding of the body, tho
jury brought in a verdict of "died
from exposure whilo under the influence of intoxicating liquor."
Strong efforts aro being mado by the
police to aacerlain who tlie white man
was that furnished thu liquor, and
should he lm discoyerod tho full force
of tlio law will be directed against him.

Correspondence of iho Columbian.
Naas 111VKit, Doc. 10.—It is really
tio bad something is not dono to kcop
the Indians In those parts from going
to Victoria, Puget Sound, and other
southern places wliere they got a great
deal of harm. A lot of them went last
summer and got in a heap of troublo
tltruUijh whiskey-—lost a great part of
thoir Hummer's earnings at Viotoria nn
their way homo. But, worst of all,
many of them took their families with
them, and some of them took scarlet
fever and died on their way homo.
Tho disease was brought here where it
quickly spread, and up to thi* date it
hns carried off CO children and young
poople. From ono heathen village
thoy brought two large canoes full of
children to the Methodist mission at
Greenville. It is Baid that all those
brought there recovered; but the
mlaaiomtrv himself was taken very ill,
he had so much work attending tho
sick day mid night, nnd had nlso bIx of
his own ohildren down with the disease
at one time. When his youngest child
died ho was notable to follow him to
the grave. The plague is now abating.
Perhaps it has gone through nil tho
trihes nud loses its energy simply be-
cuuao there nro no more victims.
