The Cermaii Crown Prince.
Berlin, March 3.—The imperial
family has ceased to hope for the
recovery of the crown prince. The
lirst result of the microscopic examination by Prof. Waldeuiar as communicated to the emporor are unfavorable, disclosing traces of cancer. A full official report will probably be delayed until Dr. Beckeing-
housen makes ah analysis of the
part. From the results of the examination a court dispatch confirms
the progress of the symptoms tending toward a fatal issue. Occasional
appcarancesof improvement followed
by a renewal of tho gravest apprehensions are indications that no
immediate crisis is expected, but it
is recognized that a sudden change
for the worst may occur at any
moment, involving death. If the
discaso is permitted to rim its full
course the crown prince may be
able to return to Berlin in May
and pass his last days there. He
has stated to the emperor his wish to
return to Berlin as soon as possible,
and the emperor, coinciding with
the crown prince, has relinquished
his proposed journey to San Remo.
The respites from suffering the
crown prince obtains encourages the
confidence that he will be able to
return to Berlin. If he is fated to
die suddenly in San Bemo, he has
everything ready. He has written
his will and prepared a political testament for his successor. The presence of Prince William at the villa
has cheered his mother and the
prince. Comments adyerse to Prince
William continue to be heard in Berlin society. Signjficaj(ie,is oft^ed
to the fact that none of the family
met him at Sari Remo station when
he arrived from Genoa in company
with Prince Henry, his brother, and
Prof. Bergmann. He was received
by the perfect, the mayor, and the
German consul. This arrangement
was due to the crown prince, who
sent instructions to the prince at
Carlsruhe that Princes William and
Henry, with Dr. Bergmann, meet
him, the obvious object being to enable him to gain a full knowledge of
tho condition of hiB father before
seeing his mother and sisters. The
crown prince with the princess
awaited him within the villa. It is
understood he received the warmest
welcome, and tha't many tears were
shed during the interview. Twenty
minutes after his arrival the crown
princess alone accompanied him to
meet his father. During yesterday
and to-day Prince William has been
with the crown prince nnd there was
every appearance of cordiality between father and son. The reports
of coolness in their relations are
chiotty traceable to French sources.
French papers vie with each other
in malicious inventions. During the
journey from Carlsruhe Prince William obtained a number of French
papers, and was excited to anger by
the stories in them of his selfish intentions to the crown prince, and
his callous disregard of his father's
sufierings. Throughout Germany
public interest in news from San
llemo grows intense. The people of
Berlin await dispatches with the
same eagerness and agitation as if a
campaign involving the fate of the
nation were in progress. During
thu week Bismarck had a long conference with tho emperor, it is supposed with reference to the proposal
to grant Princo William tho power
to sign, in the event of tho temporary incapacity of the emporor, concurrent with tho prostration of tho
orown prince. The crown prince
dil!'ers with Princo Bismarck on a
question of a regency of this character. It is reported that the emperor
accedes to the proposal, admitting
the force of Prince Bismarck's plan
that the simultaneous illness of himself and the crown princo might
create confusion in the management
of publio atliiirs. Tho emperor is
enrnful to show himself overy day,
either driving out or appearing at
tho windows of the palace. This
helps to calm tho general perturbation. The relations of Prussia with
tho allied powers arc taking developments exactly as was forecast. Tho
diplomatic proposals of Russia havo
resulted in nothing definite. What
is definite, however, is tho frantic
eagerness of Russia to obtain a war
lonn, nnd her coaseless preparations
for war. The revolutionary organ,
Scabodvi, declares that war rapidly
approaches, and predicts the conquest aud ruin of Russia, and the
submission of the slavs to Germany
unless tlio policy of iho czar is replaced by a free national management of public n'iatrs. However
much ho may bo averse to war, the
Internal discord of Russia will soon
force tho czar to risk the future
Romanoff dynasty by challenging
the central powers.  l    *'l u|l('

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
A NEW LAND CO.
London, Mar. fl.—Tho Canadian
Pacific Colonisation -Corporation is just
registered with a capital of £500,000
in 50,000 £10 shares fo: acquiring ihe
lauds of the new Canadian Crown
Lands syndicate in Alberta, for settlement purposes. The Rev. Oalton Hay-
den, is the leading promoter, supported
by others of no note. Two agents of
the company sail for Canada next week
to negotiate with tho Canadian Pacific
aud the government. It is understood
that the issue of a prospectus is intended to follow a successful result of
their mission.
THE PANAMA CANAL.
Paris, March 6.— M. DeLesseps, in
his report to the extra meeting of tlie
Panama Canal Company to-day, states
that the ill will of the opponents of the
caiiiil, which resulted in compelling
the company to borrow money at a
higher rato of interest than was expected, is the only cause of tho increased coat and of the intimidation of
certain of the company's contractors.
Referring to the number of cubic metres excavated in 1887, the report
states that owing to the prevalence of
tho rainy season and the difficulty in
procuring workmen, M. DeLesseps
can hardly insure the completion of
the canal in 1800. Tho directors have
been induced to agree to the construction of locks, by means of which vessels of the largest tonnage may traverse
the canal in 1890, before the work is
absolutely completed. The statement
shows that 10,000,000 francs wore
in hand Jan. 1, 1888. Pending the
decision of tho government regarding
the lottery loan it has been decided to
proceed with a third issue of bonds of
1,000 francs each to the value of G00,-
000,000 francs, the repayment of whicli
will be provided for by the creation of
a guarantee fund invested in rentes.
In conclusion M. DeLesseps expresses
his absolute confidence in the completion of the canal. The report waa adopted.

HOPELESS LOVE DID IT.
Cincinnati, O., March 7.—Herman
Abbes, aged 27, the junior member of
a wealthy bankers' firm of Bremen,
Germany, suicided here yeaterday by
shooting himself in the mouth with a
revolver. His hopeless love for Mrs.
Emma Pattison, a young married society woman of this city, was the cause
ofthe rash act. Abbes loft a will in
which Mrs. Pattison is bequeathed

PUGET  SOUND FISHING.
Gloucester, Mass., March 7.—Allen
McDonald, a business man of this city,
who visited Seattle a few weeks ago
to inspect the fishing there, has written a letter in which he Buys in regard
to the establishment of a fish business
in that city: "Fishing on Puget
Sound is not what it is cracked up to
be. If I would believe what they told
me, there are halibut on the coast line,
but it will require a man of energy and
with big capital to develop the business. Ice is $8 per ton, salt is dear,
and anything connected with fishing
vessi-ls is not to be found. To get an
outfit you have to go to San Francisco.
The Gloucester fishermen who came
here some time ago in a small craft
and went down to Wear Bay, near
Cape Flattery, to fish, found some halibut, but they Bpoiled beforo they got
them to market. 1 havo no doubt that
if a person had a small steamer to explore tho grounds and witii plenty of
vim and capital, and waited some timo

W« tint ndny KvciOns, March 7. 1HW.
Tlie Sunday Closing isy-lm.
It is not probable that any of our
readers.wero much surprised at tlie
action of the council on Monday
night practically repealing the Sunday closing by-law. It was well
understood that tho municipal election contest at the beginning of tlie
year turned mainly on that point;
and when the candidates known to
be in favor of Sabbath observance
wore counted out by tho courts, it
was fully expected that tlio by-law
would bo repealed. Tlie excuses offered by those who are opposed to
such a measure seem to bo the apparent inability of the council to
enforce any by-law aimed at restricting the liquor traffic. It
amounted simply to a confession
that it is not safe to meddle with
the traffic; because if an attempt
were made to enforce the law against
it, the liquor sellers would resist,
and in the end tho city might be
saddled with the costs. To others
it is plain enough thut any government conducted upon such a principle cannot stand. If tho fear of
resistance from ono class of men is
deemed sufficient ground upon which
to suffer the existencoof anevil,othcr
classes may combine to resist law
until wo shall land in anarchy. If
the liquor sellors demand unconditionally the privilege of carrying
on business on Sunday, why should
other merchants be deprived of equal
liberty? It was stated at tho council meeting that excellent legal
opinion pronounced tlie lute by-law
bad, and in face of that opinion it
would not be wise to proceed with
the prosecution winch had been entered against a breach of it. If the
law is bad. of cour.se tlie wisdom of
stopping proceedings under it cannot be questioned. It would certainly be foolish to go on and incur
additional expense in the face of
ultimate defeat. But this does not
at all dispose of tho principle involved. The question first to be
determined is whetlusr it is right
and in the public interest that bars
should be kept open on Sunday. ]f
it is not right, it ought not to be
permitted; and thero is really no
obstacle in the way of preventing it
except an unwillingness ou the part
of the councillors themselves. From
remarks made at the council meeting it would seem that every one of
the councillors is in favor of Sunday
closing. The municipal aet clearly
gives power to municipalities to
close sajoons on Sunday; and if tho
present by-law is defective, all tlio
council needs to do is to frame an
other which shall not be defective.
But it does not seem that anything
of tho kind is contemplated by a
majority of the councillors. They
profess to be in favor of a provincial
act. But a provincial act could not
accomplish the object any more effectively than a municipal by-law;
and if the object is admitted to be a
good one, can the council escape the
responsibility of refusing to exercise
the power which an act of the provincial parliament has expressly
delegated to it? It lias boen stated
that if bars were closed in this oity
on Sunday, some persons would establish a saloon adjacent to the city
limits, and the traffic would bo carried on all the samo. This is not a
plea that will stand examination.
The territory adjoining this city is
not under municipal jurisdiction,and
before a license could be granted it
becomes necessary to obtain a petition signed by two-thirds of the residents in the vicinity of the proposed
license, and even then it is competent for the license court to refuse.
This being the fact, we apprehend
no license could be obtained adjoining the city limits. But peoplo
might cross the river where there is
now a licensed house in the municipality of Surrey! So they might;
but does any one really suppose that
any large number of persons would
do this! It has been found else-
whero that when tlio opportunities
for obtaining liquor have been removed to a distance, the amount of
drinking is greatly lessened, and we
have not the slightest doubt but the
same result would follow the closing
of city bars on Sunday. We nre
afraid there is room to doubt the
sincerity of some of those councillors
who professed themselves so heartily
in favor of a provincial Sunday
closing law. Actions speak sometimes louder than words, and when
a man distinctly puts himself in opposition to a principle of which he
professes to approve, he must not
complain if we pass by his words
and judge hiin by acts. It is very
much to be regretted that this latest
effort to redeem from the stigma of
Sabbath desecration the fair name
of our beautiful city has failed; and
we hope those who nro responsible
for its failure may seriously reflect
whether it is safe in the long run to
let their conduct be guided by considerations of expediency and selfishness whon more noble principles
are being pressed upon their attention.
Mr. Thomas Ballard, Syracuse, N. Y.,
writeS: "I havo been afflicted for nearly
a year with that most-to-bo-droadod disease, Dyspepsia, and at times worn out
with pain and want of sleep, and aftor

MONEY FOR REPORTERS.
low Editor Storoy'H Opimstnon to Ifroo

Mrs, Storey, widow oi the celebrated Chi-
iflgo Editor, delights to tell of an liii-hk-nt
iviiloh ooeurred some yen. ago, before tliu
leath of Mr. .Htorv.
A prominent Democrat, a friend of tho
iditor of the Times, v,us ntiin'ng for ofllce.
)f course Storey. Ii'lped him out The
taper contained a few rlitoriat paragrnph-j
musing ilio eiindiduH*, l-titwh it pleas ■d'tiio
•eiitlcnian'most wus tlio handsome reports
if his speeches which appeared in Uie eiiy
•olumns.
According to the reports in tho Times,
ho candidate was an eiutyumt orator who
lightly stirred tho passions aud won tlie
pplause of his hearers. The candidate folt
ery grateful to the Tunes people for tlieir
uudliuoss, and one eve ing when lie wit-.iu
lie oitice to seo Story the thought occurred
o him that it would bo a good (liliig to
endcr the reporters, who had done such
lotiderful tilings for his speeches, some
okenof his appreciation.   So he marched
mo me managinguuiiora room, tJiianiDor-
n wus managing editor at that time—uud
ild to tlmtgciitlemaii:
i "Mr. Chamberlain, I wnnt to make n little
resent to the repor eis of your stall'. I sup-
oho vou have no objections?"
Nevermind (hat," replied Mr. Chamber*
...i; "it's not necessary, aud I am afraid
Ir. Story wouldn't tike iU"
"Hut tlio reporters havo really done very
'Wly by me, Mr. Chamberlain, and I want
'make them feel that I appreciate their
illness. Here's a *?10 note; I wish you
mid take it, Mr. Chamberlain, and divide
among the reporters with my compll-
cuts."
"Oh, that won't do," remonstrated tho
ljtor,J"and you must really put away your
oney or Mr. Story will bo mre to get
ngry about it."
So the candidate folded up the $10 noto
lite unable to underhand why it had beeu
Alined. Of course Kditor Chamberlain
id to turn his head iu order to avoid
j.n:hing the candidate iu the face, nnd tu
leaking of the incident afterward, Mr.
humbarlain said:
"We had twenty-four reporters at that
me, und tho $10 would hnve given them
'ist forty-one and two-third cents each."
Spurious Viuegnr.
"A great deal of the vinegar now sold Is
mile from oak and hemlock chips treated
ith u mixture of tartaric acid, sal soda, uud
liter," Baid a wholesale grocer recently.
A quantity of the chips is cast into n stout
invl, which is lilted tothe brim with acid
id water, und left with open bung in a hot
filar or apartment, to ferment, or woik, us
he manufacturers term it, nnd at the end of
ivu weeks tbo contents uf tho barrel are
\i ns formed into 'cider vinegar.' Vinegar
i lie kept up to proof must be of at least
arty-iM'uin lest, but the test tube of tlio
luegiir man is much thesume us thut of (lie
qiior dealer, nud tells merely the strength
f tho lluid, without indicating any adultcru-
on.
"Tho manufacturers uro about tho only
nes who can really tell pure vinegar. They
re expert samplers, nnd enn readily tell the
lU'orence between thespuriousumi genuine
riieles by tusting them. There is uu euorni-
us profit on vim-gar, nnd wholesale dealers
.equcntly make startling cuts iu prices to
miersell their riv.tts, und this sometimes
wakens the suspicions of tho buyer that
hing? aro not what they seem.'
"Another way to iniike vinegar, which is
nrgely practised by 'mannfablnrers is
trough the vinegnr plant, commonly called
he 'mother.' The most of this will stand
ny test that can bo applied. Two pounds
f it placed in n bill re, of water will in two
r three months' time iiMiisiortu tbe. liquid
uto as good cider vine urn? cun be bought
ny where. This is readily sold at wholesale
er 15 cents a gallon."

Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to tho throat and

Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered;- affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for 'Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children wero
afflicted, we used, during tho past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For thia affection, we
consider this preparation tho most efficacious of all tho medicines whioh have
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-

I have used Ayor's Chorry Pectoral
in my family for many years, and
havo found it especially valuablo in
Whooping Cough. This medicino allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to the lungs, nnd quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.

How to Detect AduUeriitod olive OU.
The rclininr' of cotton-seed oil is now carried on to suoh a degree of perfection, and
so dear is the color thus insured, that in
using it for the adulteration of olive oil there
is no longer any reddish tint to indicate its
presence, wliicti can ouly bo proved by
ctieinictil umdysis. Tho extent of this nd-
mi*>tnre is Himetinics found io reach, nml
even exceed, ■.evonty-live nor cent. Ono
mode of readily testing tor this udultemtioii
is by the use ot nitric protos de of mercury,
the yellow simple basic suit of this chemical
combination being employed. About one-
seventh lo one-sixth of an ounce of this is
dissolved in a cylindrical test i^lnss, in ubout
one-sixth to ono-tifth of on ounce of nitric
ncid. On this solution the oil to bo tcstud
is poured in such quantity thut the lest
glass is about two-thirds full: the two fluids
are then Shaken together for about live
seconds, the otuingo in color being at once
no;iced. Tnaicd iu this solution, eotlon*
sced oii becomes dark brown or almost black,
but Hilar u short time the solution becomes
(oorless and clear. Pure olive oil has a
greenish or light yellow tinge, while the
idlution under the layer of oil Assumes a
ri;..*. ted or brown color. Mixed with tifly
por (.cut. ot col ton-seed oil, the olive oil assumes in tula process a brick red to a brown-
ish red tinge, und a mixture of twenty-live
per cent, makes orange yellow to red yellow.

Indian All u Irs Report.
The following facts have been learned
about the contents of the roport of the
department of Indian affairs: In I Stilt
tlie Indians, who were wards of tho government, numbered lSj'ISl. By the
census return published in the report the
number now is 1*28,000. The reserve:!
have in the same time increased from 5ti
to 1,147. In 1803 there were G3 schools
iu operation, there arc now 198, There
has been little friction except in Kootenay, where Chief Isadora's band rescued
an Indian prisoner. Tho Indians of Port
Simpson became disaffected and made
extravagant demands. A treaty was
mado with the Crow Indians by which
it is hoped cattle stealing will be stopped. The expenditure during tho fiscal
year is §321,7S0, being an increase over
tlie previous year of $30,6S8.

open a fund for the purpose of relieving the widows and orphans of those
who wero killed in the lute colliery
disaster in No. fi pit of the Wellington
colliovies on Jan. 24th. Communications have been sent to tbe mayors of

John Matthews (chairman), A. U.
Anderson (seorotary), W. A. Lind jay
(treasurer), .John Robson, Jas. Wark,
W. J. Bailey, Wm. Pringle, D. Moffat
and H. Cruston. The committee hopes
that this will meet with tho approval
of the public generally throughout the
province and that nil will respond with
1 hat generosity which has been extended so liberally on past occasions.
Tlie ArtCMltiti Well.
The meeting called for last night to

water and minerals, was attended by a
number of gentlemen who take an inter.
est in these affairs. Anion'' those presont
were Messrs. Whiteside, Wilson, Town-
send, Shirley, McKenzie, Kankin, McNab, Wintemute. Band, Stroet, John*)
fou and Read.
On motion Mr. James Wilson was
elected chairman and Mr. K. A. Band
secretary.
Mr. Whiteside, by request of the
chairman, explained his object in calling
the meeting, und also furnished much
valuable information as to thu probable
results of sinking the well. The cost of
sinking the Well, price of machinery and
other matters of importance were also
explained by the speaker Moved by Mr.
Witcniutc, seconded by Mr. Townsend
and carried:— That a joint stock company be formed, with a capital of sio,-
(100 with powor to increase the same, for

The house of commons lias got fairly at ita work, and discussions have
turned upon important matters affecting the interest of the state From a
statement mado by Sir Hector Langevin it appears that the Intercolonial
railway is still operated at considerable
loss to tho country. In reply to Mr.
Mara, ia was stated thnt tho federal
government intended shortly to appoint additional county court judges
in British Columbia, Bills have beon
introduced incorporating tho Chinook
Belt and Peace Rivor Railway, and
tlio Port Arthur, Duluth & Western
Railway. The fishery treaty debate
is expected to open shortly. As an
amendment to a motion to go into
committeo of supply, Mr. Mills movod
that in the opinion of the house the
government should bring forward
measures for the better enforcement,
of tho Scott net. Aftor considerable
discussion tho amendment was l->nt on
a voto of b. to 109. It wus neither a
party role nor a temperance voto.
Many of the speakers, whilo expressing themselves in favor of tho Scott
act, protested against making it a
party question, and tho debate brought
out the fact that Mr. Mills had moved
his amendment without consulting
cithor his party or the temperanco
people,

England's defenses,
London, March 5.—Mr. Stanhope,
secretary of war, has issued a memorandum relative to tho army estimates
and to tho report of tbo committee lio
appointed to consider tho condition
for defense of the military and mercantile porta of tho kingdom. Ho admits
that after a caieful inquiry it has been
ascertained that deficiencies exist in
the defenses of Portsmouth, Plymouth,
and the Thames, which render England's position dangerously insecure.
This condition of affairs, ho says, is
mainly duo not to tho misspending of
credits, but to the rapid increase of
tho offensive power of the navies. Mr.
Stanhope proposes that active measures bo immediately passed by parliament in order to remedy thia weakness. Ho further Btates that the system oEorgapizatiou recently prevailing
at the war oflice appears to him singularly ill-calculated to promote a comprehensive and critical examination of
the whole subject. Ho explains the
various reforms that havo already been
mado or are meditated.
Tho Standard, in an article praising
Mr. Stanhope's courage, urges tho government to give up thoir pretended
policy of economy and aak parliament
for money that is really indispensable
for the due protection of thu empire.
Tho Times commends Mr. Stanhope's
vigor, which it Bays promises the dawn
of a now era of businesslike efficiency
in the war office.
