There are several groves of big
trees in California. The most
famous of which are the Calaveras
grove and the Mariposa grove. The
Oalnverns grove occupies what may
be described as a band or belt 3,200
feet long and 700 in width. It is
between two slopes, in a depression
in the mountains, and has n stream
winding through it, which runs dry
in the summer time. In this grove
the big trees number 93, besides a
great many smaller ones, which
would be considered very large if it
were not for the presence of these
monarchs of the forest Several of
the big trees have fallen sinoo
the grove was discovered, one
has been cut down, and one had the
bark stripped from it to the height
of 116 feet from the ground. The
highest now standing is the "Keystone State," 327 feet high and 45
feet in circumference; and the largest and finest is the "Empire State."
There are four trees over 300 feet
in height, and 40 to 61 feet in circumference. The tree which was
cut down occupied five men twenty-
two days, which would be at the
rate of one man 110 days, or nearly
four months' work, not counting
Sundays, Pump augers were used
for boring through the giant. After
the trunk was severed from the
stump it required five men with immense wedges for three days to topple it over. The bark was 18 inches
thick. The tree would have yielded
more than 1000 cords of 4-foot wood
and 100 cords of bark, or more than
1100 cords in all. On the stump of
the tree was built a house, SO feet
in diameter, whioh the Rev. A. II.
Tevis, an observant traveler, says
contains room enough in square (eet,
if it were the right shape, for a parlor 12x16 feet, a dining-room 10x12,
a kitchen 10x12, two bed-rooms 10
feet square each, a pantry 4x8, two
clothes-presses 1*. feet deep and 4
feet wide, and still have a little to
spare! The Mariposa grove is part
of a grant made by congress to be
set apart for publio use, resort, and
recreation forever. The area of tbe
grant is two miles square and comprises two distinct grr.vcs about half
a. mile apart The upper grove contains 365 trees, of which 154 are
over 15 feet in diameter, besides a
great number of smaller ones. The
average height of the Mariposa trees
is less tban tbat of the Calaveras,
the highest Mariposa tree being 272
feet; but the average size of the
Mariposa is greater than that of
Calaveras. Tlie " Grizzly Giant," in
the lower grove, is 94 feet in circumference and 31 feet diameter; it
has been decreased by burning. Indeed, the forests at times present a
somewhat unattractive appearance,
as, in the past, the Indians, to help
them in their hunting, burned off
the chaparral and rubbish, and thus
disfigured many of these splendid
trees by burning, off nearly all the
bark, llie first branch of the
"Grizzly Giant" is nearly 200 feet
from the ground and is six feet in
diameter. The remains of a tree,
now prostrate, indicate that it had
reached a diameter of 40 feet and a
hoight of 400 feet; the trunk is
hollow and will admit of the passage
of threo horsemnn riding abreast
There are about 125 trees of over
40 feet in circumference. Besides
these two main groves there are the
Tuolumne grove, with about 30 big
trees; the Fresno grove, with over
800 spread over an area of two and
and a half miles long and one to
two broad; and the Stanislaus grove,
in the Calaveras group, with from
J00 to 800. There should be named
in this connection the petrified forest
nrar Cal'i'oga, which contain por
tions of nearly 100 distinct trees of
great size, scattered over a tract of
three or four, miles in extent; the
largest of this forest is eleven feet
in diameter at the base and sixty
feet long. It is conjectured that
these prostrate giants wero
Bilicificd by the eruption of the
neighboring Mount St. Helena,
which discharged hot alkaline waters
containing silica in solution. This
petrified forest is considered one of
the grout natural wonders of California.

A lady stepped into a sleigh on
Wabash street the other day, and,
taking up the reins, talked to her
horse like this: "Got upl" "Go on,
Billyl" "Gotupl Get upl" "Billy,
why don't you gof "You horrid
brutel" "What a stupid!" The
horse, despite all this, stood stock
still. Then his mistress spoke to a
gentleman who had beon watching
her, "Can you make this animal
start, sir!" He politely bowed, came
forward, untied the horse and patted
him on the neck. Then the animal
started.-*. Paul Globe.

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
COLUMBIA. BIVEI1 IMPROVEMENTS.
Washington, Jan. 31.—The legislature of Washington Territory has sent
a memorial to congress, asking that
$30,000 be appropriated to Impfove the
Upper Columbia and to remove from
the stream obstacles to navigation, especially between that part of the river
where Colvillo river empties into the
Columbia, and Snake river, a distance
of 300 miles.
DRAFT OP THE FISHERY TREATY.
Washington, Jan.' 31.—TlieFishery
Commissioner and the State Department have furnished a surprise. Only
yesterday a member of the Commission stated absolutely that no agreement had beeu reached. However,
late last night a message was presented
to the Senate in executive session containing a draft of a treaty relative to
the fisheries. The nature of this draft
cannot be stated from any definite official knowledge, but it is believed that
the draft proposes to refer the subject
in dispute to arbitration,
the best on record.
Milwaukee, Jan. 31.—In a match
game of billiards between Schaeffer and
Carter last night, Schaeffer made the
largest run on record, scoring 284
points in the seventh and last inning,
Balk game. The largest run ever
made by Schaeffer before was 230
points. He beat his own record by 54
points.
revolutionists sentenced.
St. Peibrsdoro, Jan. 31.—Recently
seven persons, including a nobleman
and three women, were sentenced to
death for belonging to a secret revolutionary society and having in their
possession a quantity of bombs and a
concealed printing press. To-day the
sentences were commuted to terms of
imprisonment varying from eight years
to life servitude.
TRIAL OF DYNAMITERS.
London, Jan. 31.—The trial of Cal-
Ian nnd Harkins, the alleged dynamiters, will begin on Wednesday. Col.
Majendie, tho Inspector ot B,plosives,
haa concluded a series of experiments
with ihe dynamito found among the
effects of Callan, and on the promises
occupied by both of the prisoners, with
the result of ascertaining that it is of
the most powerful kind known among
the various grades of the compound.
Had there previously been any doubt
of the conviction of these men, this
discovery would remove it, since the
strongest point of the defence made by
the prisoners' counsel at the preliminary examination was that the ao-called
explosive found in their possession waa
really harmless.
THE   UNEMPLOYED.
London, Jan. 31.—Lord Salisbury
will receive on Wednesday a most important deputation to represent to the
premier the condition of the working
classes. Cardinal Manning and Lord
Herschell will be among the speakers
presenting the case of the starving unemployed, and the scarcely more fortunate ill-paid employed, and it is expected that the Premier will intimate
his intention to recommend some aotion on the part of Parliament to alleviate these sufferings.
SMITH AND SULLIVAN.
London, Jan. 31.—The backers of
Jem Smith have accepted the challenge
of John L. Sullivan to defeat the English champion in six rounds or forfeit
£200, but surrounded the acceptance
with many conditions. It is likely,
however, that Sullivan, who would
gain nothing but the satisfaction of
demonstrating his superiority by
knocking Smith out, will overlook the
provisoes, and the contest may take
placo at an early date.
A REIGN OF TERROR.
Duui.iN, Jan. 31.—Edward Fitz-
mrurice, a farmor living a few miles
from Tralee, has been boycotted for a
longtime. He was a imihI Irishman
and supporter of Home Rule, but had
committed the unpardonable offence of
occupying a farm from which his
brother had been evicted. Ever since
he has lived in fear for his life, aud
found it extremely difficult to dispose
of the products of his farm, or even to
obtain the necessaries of existence. All
his motions were watched, and he was
often obliged to call for police protection. Yesterday morning Fitzmaurice
started for Tralee fair with a drove of
pigs, and, not daring to leave her
alone, he took his daughter with him,
and, having asked for protection, was
given a smnll escort. After passing
the village of Lisnau, the police turned
baok and loft the man and daughter to
proceed without further protection.
His brother, who had been watching
for him, then approaohed, shook hands
with him and suddenly the evicted
brother drew a revolver and shot and
killed Fitzmsurioe.
THIS MOBNIJfi'S DESPATCHES.
A FEUD ENDED.
Cheyenne, Feb. 1.—NearHartville,
in thia county yesterday, Thomas
Eubanks and George West, ranchmen,
met on tbe prairie and exchanged
shots. West was instantly killed. The
tragedy ends a feud of fire years standing, arising from the courtship and
marriage of West's niece by Eubanks.
West had on two previous occasions
attempted the life of hiB slayer. Though
no reliable particulars are obtainable at
present it is believed the killing waa
done in self-defence.
dominion revenue and debt,
Montreal, Feb. 1.—The Dominion
[recounts just published.show that Uie
net debt of the Dominion was increased
last year by $4,154,803, being |227,-
313,000 at the close of the year. The
revenue last year reached $35,754,993.
This has been exceeded only once.
SCARCITY OF COAL,
Reading, Feb. 1.—One of the large
furnaces of the Croken Iron Co., at
Birdsborough, went out last night,

A telegram will bo found among
our press despatches to-day which
shows the injustice and hardship
Buffered by some Irishmen who do
not go nltogothcr with the national
party. Tlie boycott is a very powerful weapon in the hands of peoplo
who msSf-A an unwarranted and unprincipled uso of it, but in the case
of the man referred to in our despatch the boycott was, perhaps,
less dreadful than the fear of secret
assassination which accompanied it.
The spectacle of a perfectly innocent and inoffensive man afraid to
bo seon in public without polico protection is a very serious reflection
upon some of tlio methods pursued
by the so-colled liberators of Ireland.
O'Donovan Kossa preaches dymi-
tnino in New York, and in Ireland
a man who has committed no crime
and offended against no proper custom lives in dread of the application
of these doctrines,
Our local cotemporary. having
satisfied himself that "there can be
no doubt as to the nppointnient of
Mr. Robson to the vacant senator-
ship for this province," observes that
there is a growing feeling in favor
of abolishing the senate. "It seems
to be a sort of alms house," says our
cotemporary, "for decayed politicians, and a burden on the public
funds." We agree with our cotemporary to a certain extont. The
senate, as at present constituted,
we have long regarded as an institution of very doubtful utility. The
practice of filling it with partisans
of whatever political party happens
to be in power is most objectionable.
By this means it becomes a political
machine intended merely to record
nnd confirm the will of the government. But the funny part of it is
that our cotr-mporary never discovered how absolutely objectionable
the senate is until he heard thnt
Mr. Robson had been made a member of it I
It is asserted on good authority
that no bill involving a considerable
change in the tariff will pass the
United States congress. Since the
publication of President Cleveland's
message a great tariff discussion has
boen going, on, and the protected
manufacturers have been very actively working against the change
of policy suggested. As a party,
the republicans will largely vote
against any modification of the tariff',
and the democrats are by no means
unanimbuB. It may possibly happen that such a compromise will be
agreed upon as will result in a slight
reduction in some cases, but nothing
satisfactory to those opposed to high
traiff need be expected. The uncertainty that has been existing
during the past few months is said
to have peroiptibly disturbed certain industries. Persons in the iron
business, for example, hesitate to
undertake contracts, for if any substantial reduction should be made
in the iron duties, prices would undergo a very considerable change.
When monopolies become powerful,
it is most difficult to escape from
the effects of them; and of late years
monopolies have grown in the United
States to a very alarming extent.
Taxes taken out of the pockets of
the peoplo in the shape of customs
duties would soon become intolerable if they appeared in the form of
ordinary taxes. They nre like
sugar-coated pills, disguised for a
purpose but having the same effect
upon those for.-, whom they aro intended as if the sugar was absent.
Few people wilt find fault with
the miners of Nanaimo and Wellington who have resolved not to
enter the mines again until a thorough investigation has been made
respecting the causes of the late explosion. The object of this investigation is, of course, the discovery of
something that will prevent the recurrence of similar disasters. Two
explosions within a year are certainly enough to fill the minds of
the miners with distrust. The shaft
in which the explosion took place
last week was believed to be one of
the best regulated in the mines, and
the explosion is a profound mystery. Tho men have become thoroughly alarmed, and not without
cause. Life is one's most precious
possession, and no ono can be sure of
his life for a moment in theso mines.
One of the results of the action of
the men is that the supply of coal
has been suddenly cut off. There
is no coal to be had for any purpose whatever. This will cause
great inconvenience to consumers,
and will also be a serious loss to the
owners of the mines; but we are
Bare all will cheerfully submit to the
inconvenience under the circumstances. The determination of the
men is reasonable, and dught to be
respected. We are glad to see that
Mr. Dunsmuir has intimated his desire to cooperate heartily with tho
men in endeavoring to mako the
investigation productive of good
praotical results. He has promised
every aid, and has even placed one
of the trains of the Nanaimo railway
at their disposal for the purpose of
facilitating the work. We earnest
ly hope the enquiry may discover
the causes whicli have led to such
painful results so that effective rem-
ldies may be applied against future
Accident*.

For a number of months I was

I suffered from Constipation, and, consequently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and Piles, for years. Ayor's Pills, which
I took at the suggestion of a friend, have
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and

"I've no patience with the girl I" said

Bob, however,   took things mora

"let her alone," aaid he; "we have

"Ob, plenty of it! But ol course ne
couldn't stay all night. And it's past

up at the clock, all embowered in a mist
of redberried asparagus—"and he told
me he knew ot a short cut across lbs

under the elms."
"He's not going home that way,
Alice?"
"Of course ho is I" she replied. "It

he says," 1
"But that road is not used now."
"He is going to use it, stall events; tonight"

"About fifteen minutes," said Alice.

Boii paused, to make no answer, but
rushed out of the door, neglecting, in his
haste, to clnss it behind htm, so that a
gnat of rain and wind blew in, fluttering
Dulv's newly laundried curtains and
touching Alice's forehead like a chill
hand.
Hhrr ran out inlo Ihe kitchen.
"Hilly," she cried, "bas all the world

Dilly dropped her half-finished work,

"Alice!" cried she, "what did yon ssy

"Nothing. I Just told him that Mr.

"There is no short cut," declared
Dilly.
"Yes. there ie-thst dark road under

dead tree, where, the lightning struck

"He has gone that way?" cried Dilly.
turning deadly pale. "Didn't you tell
him?  Don't ho know 7"
Alice's lovely, liquid eyes opened to
their full extent.
"I always thought that place looked aa
if it were haunted,'.'said she. "But—•"
"Haunted? Nonsense!" sharply interrupted Dilly. "But it's a shaking bog
—a regular morass. No one passes over
it now, no one has used it since the night,
five years ago, when a wagon and two
horses were ingulfed in it. Don't you
understand? It's a sort of a quicksand

midnight when Hubert Ro ,; -
ingham came hack with Mr. Manfred
Harper, both of them very pale and
mud stained.
"It was a narrow squeerre for it," said
the city young mnn, who had a startled,
panic-stricken 1'iok in his eyes. "I was
sinking in that trench nous hole, with the
lightning blazing in my eyes, and an
owl shrieking like a doomed spirit overhead. It aeeiu.rrl exiietljf as it there

sensation it was » ben I heard Rockingham here hallooing to me. How he
pulled me out 1 don't know, \ think

"Here he is," said he. I've saved his

"I am very glad, I'm sure," said Alice,
hurriedly.   "But-Bob!"
"Yes, I'm going up-stain at once, to
get dry things for him," said Hocking-
bam.
"Oh, yes, I know I but-but can't you
speak to me ono moment, Bob?" pleaded the soft voice.
Mr. Harper and tha Inflexible Dilly
were left standing rather awkwardly out-
aide, while Robert obeyed Alice's summons, She abut the door, and then
threw herself sobbing on his breast.
"Oh, Bob! oh, Bob! I am so thankful I" she sobbed. "I don't know what
to say. but—"
"Take care," he said, gently. "You'll
get your pink frock all muddy.
"I don't care for frocks. On, Bob "
"I understand it all, Alice. You love
him; and you are grateful to me because
I have boelt lucky enough to save his

"I don't love him I" cried Alice. "His

him, "that you have not discovered before this that I love you ? Where have
your eyes been, you blind Bob ?"
Mr. Harper returned to tbe city .next

snares and pitfalls of country lift
Alice Ames remained, the atnianced
bride ot Robert Rockingham.
•But why didn't you .tell him before
that you loved him 7" said plain-spoken
Dilly.
"How could I." said Alice," when nobody asked me?"

The Alaska Salmon Pack.
Through the kindness of Mr. Thos.
Mowat, inspector of fisheries, we are
enabled to give our readers tho following detailed account of tho Alaska salmon pack for 1837: Arctic Packing Co.,
17,000 oases; Bradford & Co., 15,000
cases; Alaska Packing Co., 10,000
oaBes; Karluck Packing Co., 72.000
cases; Cutting Packing Co., 30,000
coses; Olomack Packing Co., 5,000
cases; Berry Packing Co., 8,000
cases. Total pack 103,000 cases.
Other returns give a larger pack, but
this is probably the most correct yet
issued.
Plaeiimlnatlng against Victoria.
Tho Times has discovered another
grievance against the C. P. R. China
steamers, and we must admit that it is
not by any menus groundless. In ihe
schedule of passenger rates published
by tlio agent of the steamers in China
the following prices are given: To
Vanconver, 9100; to Victoria and San
Francisco, $175. It appears, therefore, that passengers for Victoria are
oharged ? 15 more than for Vancouver,
although the regular fare between tho
two places is only 93. It is difficult
to assign a valid reason for this discrimination.
lri»Buiind on Ihe Colombia.
The extent of the cold dip may be
gathered from the following paragraph,
taken from a late San Francisco paper:
" The Oregon Itailw ry and Navigation
companies steamers State of California,
Columbia and Oregon are all ice-bound
iu the Columbia river, the two formor
attempting to get to Portland and tho
Oregon bound from that city for San
Francisco. Tho latest news received
by the agents of the company, Messrs.
Goodall, Perkins & Co., gives no hope
of the immediate release of the vessels.
Tho Oregon should have sailed from
here to-day, but as it is the company
have no steamer to send."
Onstavu. Levlvk Drnninllc Company.
Speaking of tho Levick Dramatic
Co's performance at Portland, the
Oregonian says: *'In the strongly
emotional scenes, Mr. Lcvick displayed much art, and wns uot lacking in
the pathetic. Ho was complimented
with three cells before the curtain.
Miss Celia Alsberg played the dual
role of Nanoy Yeulett, the wronged
wife, and Jess, tlio outcast. The latter waa a very fine, artistic bit of work
indeed.   Mr. John Armstrong ns tbe
fypsyandas Kridge. Mr. F. M.
'age as tire country blacksmith, and
particularly Nina Maitland as Kit,
were excellent. The audience was
large, and the applause hearty and
frequent." This coinpsny plays at
Herring's Opera House Monday and
Tuesday nights.

Onr Choral Union al Vancouver,
Last evening Hart's Opera House
was crowded with the most cultivated
people of the city, who went to listen
to tbe concert givon by the New Westminster Choral Union, whioh was
highly successful.   It consisted of two
Sarta—Handel's   masterpiece,    "The
Icssialr,"  part  1,  and   Macfnrren's
cantata, "May Day."
Of course, it is not to be expected
that in the comparatively young communities of this provinco voices can bo
found to do full justice to tho very
difficult solos of that boautiful oratorio,
but last evening the various parts
were rendered iu a manner highly
creditable to tho performers. The
choruses were sung with the greatest
accuracy and precision of attack, and
in the most perfect harmony, and the
wholo performance was as nenr perfection as careful truining, excellent
musical Insto nnd conducting ability
could make it, reflecting great credit
on tho pains taken by Bishop Sillitoe
in training, and on the talent and
efforts of all concerned. Special praise
should be given to Miss Hill and Mr.
Morey, who presided at the piano and
organ respectively. Never obtrusive,
yet ever sustaining and supplementing
the vocalists, the instrumental music
was as near the acjoinpanyist's idea)
as oould be. The charming Pastoral
Symphony from the Messiah deserves
speoial mention for the feeling way
it was rendered. The soloists, Mrs.
Sillitoe, soprano, Miss Sutherland and
Miss DeBeck, contralto, und Messrs.
H. L, DeBeck and Polly, tenor and
bass, are entitled to great crodit, while
the chorus deserves the greatest praise
for their accuracy and precision. His
Lordship, Bishop Sillitoe, wielded the
conductor's baton like a true musician,
and a large portion of the euccnas of
the concert is duo to him. All who
attended mus* hnve been thoroughly
gratified, and must wish thnt Vancouvor mHy often again be favored
witii suoh musical treats by the amateur artists of the Royal City.—News
Advertiser.
The Contested Election.
Argument waa heard in chambers
tin's morning in the contested election
oase; aud this afternoon was devoted to
a scrutiny of the ballots and further
argument on the points raised. By
some mistake Thos. Cunningham was
credited with James Cunningham's
voto and this threatened to mako tho
petitioner's caso worse by one vote.
Cnpt. Peele was placed in the
box and his explanation of the
mistake was accepted by HiB
Lordship, who allowed Mr. Jamea
Cunningham's voto to stand good.
When this point had beon decided His
Lordship wished to proceed with the
case aud finish it immediately, but the
couiiboI asked for an adjournment on
the ground that tho rnom was too cold
for delicato constitutions. Tho case
was adjourned  until 8 o'olock this
evening.

The Hatchery Bcporl,
Mr. Thomas Mowat, inspector of
fisheries, hus forwarded to the depart-
ment of marine and tisheries tho
hatchery roport for 1887. The report
is vory interesting and contains many
important matters connected with tho
deposits made of salmon oggs in the
various lakes and rivera, and the results that have been attained since tho
hatchery was established. During the
year 1887, 5,414,000 fry and semi-
hatched ova wore deposited iu lakes
and rivers on Vancouver Island and
the mainland. They were distributed
as follows: Nanaimo River, 500,000
sockeyeB; Cowichan River, 600,000
sockeyes; Coquitlam Rivor, 376,000
Bookoyes; Pitt Lake, 702,000 sockeyes
and 200,000 quinnnt; Harrison Lake,
858.000 sockeyes ond 150,000 quinnatj
Sumas River, 300,000 sockeyes and
100,000 nuinnnt; Stave River, 450,000
quinnnt; Mountain Creek, 40,000
quinnat and 101,000 sockeyeB. During tlio season of 1880 7,310,000 salmon eggs wore laid on the trays, and
during the season of 1887 about 10,-
000,000 eggs wero laid on the trays.
Since the hatchery was established
9,839,000 salmon fry have been deposited in the various lakes and rivers
along the coast. In hia report Mr.
Mowat recommends the establishment
of another hatchery which ho thinks
almost necessary, taking into consideration the immense quantities of fish
taken yearly from these waters.
O. K. Comstock, Caledonia, Minn,
writes: I was suffering tho most excruciating pains from inflatrmatory
rheumatism. One application of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil aflbnled almost
instant relief, and two bottles effr-rjed a
permanent cure.
iM
m
will pais without war, snd there are
many straws showing the tendency of
events to be in the direction of an
armed conflict. Already the uncertain
state of continental affairs has had a
great effect upon the fiscal polioy of
the English government. All ideas of
retrenchment, bo industriously advocated a few montha ago, have been
abandoned and the present temper of
the Ministry may lead them todemnnd
u vote of credit before Parliament is a
month old. Vienna press also takes a
pessimistic view of tho situation, notably the Tagblatt, which says, "Let us
hope for peace, but in the meantime
get ready for use of all good bayonets in Austria, und also get ready to
use them." The members of the military council have been summoned to
resume their sessions, and aU tlie available force iu the various Austrian gun
factories and other sources of military
supply, is kept constantly at work to
satisfy the demands of the  war office.
Like all Stjcklinci IIka-edies, Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable Disco-'ory
and Dyspeptic Cure deserves a fair trial.
It would be absurd to suppose that this
or any other medicine of kindred nature
could piod'ico mstauianstor.s effects.
For the thoi'OU3li removol of Chronic
Dyspepsia. Constipation, Liver Com-
plaint, and other aliments to which it is.
adapted, its uso should be continued
some time, evm aftor the chief symptoms
are relieved.., Thai; it thon effects complete cures is a fact established by ample
and respectable evidence.
Personal.
We are glad to hear that Mr. George
Wise, registrar of the supreme court,
who left for Viotoria a lew days since
by the advice of his physician, for
change of air and a cessation from official work, seems to have much benefitted by the professional advice given,
and that there is a good prospect of our
seeing him amongst us again in a few
weeks' time.
Mr. C. K. Riggius, Bcamsville, writes:
"A customer who tried a bottle of
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Biscovery says it iB the best thing he ever
used; to quote his own words, 'It just
seemed to touch the spot affected.'
Abont a year ago ho had an attack of
bilious fever, and was afraid he was in
for another, when I recommended this
valuable medicine with such happy
results."
Late Despatches.
o'bki-bn's continental visit.
London, Jan. 30.—Despite the announcement so industriously circulated
that O'Brien has left Ireland for the
south of France, where he will remain
some time endeavoring to recover his
health, it is strongly suspected that his
reported departure is merely a subterfuge to escape arrest, Mr, O'Brien, as
well as his friends, believing that a
Becond term of imprisonment coining
so soon after the hardships he endured
in Tullamore jail would be fatal to
him. It has been even given out
semi*officially that O'Brien will not be
molested by the authorities for anything he may have-eaid or done prior
to bis arrest for speaking at the Mitchelstown meeting, and his subsequent
conviction and incarceration through
any infraction of the crimes net, of
which he may be guilty in the future,
will, it is said, be followed by immediate punishment. But the Frecmon's

SWINRFOilt) TALK!-) OF KKsHlNINii.
Detroit, Jan. 81.—Gov. Swiueford
is very likely to resign tha chief magistrateship of Alaska within a few days.
He is tired of the official cures of a
territory which has such crude laws
and he is unablo to got, Congress to improve them. Since going to Alaska
he has dabbled in mining properties
whioh have panned out rich. He says
it would be to his advantage tn give his
exclusive time to mines. lie says: "I
have made up my mind to ask President Cleveland to relieve me unless
Alaska is given a proper system of law.
We want a local legislation or council
there to form local laws, and we need a
system of land laws eo as to insure titles
to occupants. Unless I am sati •
I tl that Co.igr- U will recognize
Alaskan wants, I will tender my resignation before I leave here, The prospects for legislation, which the governor wants, are not very bright, and
his resignation may result within a
week or so. In this event Michigan
would undoubtedly name his successor.
