Current Events and Opinions.
The despondency of commerce
over tho temporary stagnation in
trade in England is probably deeper
than the facts justify. The complaint is of decreased business and
diminished profits, of production
.outrunning demand. At each recurring season of dullness, the coni-
plaint is true, but in spite of periodical drawbacks the general increase in foreign commerce has been
very great. In 1840 the exports
per head of the population amounted
to only £1 8s,; last year they had
risen to £6 lis. M, If profits have
been reduced, thrift is grenter j for
capital continues tb accumulate.
Tlie deposits in tho joint stock banks
rose from £4,21,000,000 in 1874, to
£475,000,000 in 1884. This accumulation of capital is the combined
result of production and saving;
and, while these processes continue
to go on the nation cannot economically be in a very bad way. It may
be that in the future the supremacy
of England's manufacturing industry may cense to he what it hits been
in the past; but she still has an
enormous advantage over many
other countries in tho command of
practically unlimited capital and in
the trained skill' of her workmen;
in. the immediate prospect of her
commerce there is nothing to cause
despondency, though there may be
cause for anxiety.—Tke Week,
The British Columbian.

square inch more than Bessemer
steel. Patents have been secured
in most civilized countries, and the
new process. is to bo controlled by a
monopoly, which will regulate supply by demand. The new discovery
seems important, but whether it is
as much so as many imagine may
be doubted. A process essentially
similar to Fushmuth's wns applied
in the manufacture of aluminium at
Birmingham about six years ago,
and the product wus as cheap as
that produced by the Philadelphia
chemist, yet nothing of account
seemed to come of it,-—-Globe,
The Liberal and Independent
press of Great Britain give abundance of testimony justifying the
assertion made in theso columns
(hat the depression in Great Britain
is local nnd not general; and a fleets
only two great industries and not
tho whole. The ship building aud
iron industries are the only two industries considerably depressed, and
strange to relate, the iron industry
though depressed in certain localities is buoyant in others. An excessive supply of Bhips—an enormous over-production in the past
two years—has brought about the
depression in'that trade combined
with the decreased supply of freights
throughout the world. A pause in.
the railway building has decreased
the demand for iron temporarily,
but the development of Africa is expected soon to give that industry
. another enormous impetus, A high
English authority deel . is that the
woollen and worsted, the leather
and the chemical, trades are all active. The cotton manufacturing
though not buoyant yet, is far from
being depressed. The farmers have
a, good harvest though low prices.
The low quotations for all classes
of food, a loial result of free trade,
is in itself the great reason why the
depression is not general throughout
England, as the very cheapness of
raw material and food tends to maintain consumption at its normal proportion. Lord Beaconsfield remarked ouce that the price of chemicals
was the barometer of t *ade; and ~o
too must the activity of tl chemical trade be accepted as nn nation that the commercial wot i
seen the worst side of the preset ■
depression.—Ottawa Free Press,
gidcnlific jB&elhmg..
A discovery which it is said
promises to effect what can be considered little less thau a revolution
in economical arts has been made at
Philadelphia by a German chemist
named Fushmuth, • Aluminum is a
compound metal of immense tensile
strength, very hard and durable,
and not liable to tarnish. It is
moreover so very light, bearing in
relation to silver a proportional
gravity of 2.79 to 10, that it is in
use in tho French army for buttons
and buckles, Us substitution for
these purposes allowing the soldier
to carry 30 or 40 more cartridges
without increasing the weight which
he formerly had to carry. The great
obstacle to its employment has been
its cost, whioh is about $16 per lb.
Fushmuth, by the employment of a
vapor generated from common baking soda, is enabled to extract tho
alumina from clay and combine it
to form aluminium, at a total cost
not exceeding $1.25 per lb. The
oxide of alumina, from which the
metal Is made, is as abundant as
iron, existing in clays all over the
globe, and easily extracted. .The
discovery it is thought will lead to
the substitution of aluminium, either
pure or as au alloy, for iron And
other metals, in the construction of
domestic utensils, cannon, telegraph
wires, and in fact everything iu
which lightness, combined with
strength, hardness, nnd untamish-
abillty, is desired. Aluminium
brotfte, which is made of 90 parts
copper and 10 parts iiluminirm, has
a tensile strength of three tons per
The Theory of Vaccination. —
Prof. Tyndall sugf-eita that, just m
the anil may be io effectually robbed
of some essential ingredient by tm*
abundant crop as to be incapable ot
producing another, so in the human
system a parasitic disease may sn completely exhaust the blood of si-nie ingredient necesiary to the growth and
propagation of the parasite that the
production of a second crop in fatal or
considerable quantity may be impossible. It would thus appear that protective vaccination or iimoculatiun is
simply tha introduction into the blood
of weakened and comparatively harmless disease germs tu consume the material which might become food for
similar serins in a more vigorous and
dangerous condition.
Wind Work.—A gale at-East St.
Louis in 1871, nccordinif to Mr. 0.
Shalor Smith, overturned a locomotive,
exerting a force of uo less than 03
pounds per square foot. At St, Oharltts
a jail was destroyed in 1877, tlie pressure required being 84 pounds per
square foot. At Marshtield, in 1880,
a brick mansion was leveled, the force
necessary being 58 pounds per square
foot. Below these extraordinary pressures, Mr. Smith has instanced numerous cases of trains blown off rails, and
bridges, etc., blown down,' by gales of
24 .to 31 pounds per square foot.
• Successful experiments in distributing the electric light tn great distances
have been made in connection with
the Turin Electrical Exhibition. A
Siemens machine of 30 horse-power
generated a current which was simultaneously used by several electric light
systems spread over a circuit of about
25 miles.
A motor driven by small charges of
gun-cotton is au English novelty. It
Ib said to bo applicable wherever small
powers are required.
A German botanist has given instances of the modification of plants
by insects so as to produce new varieties.
Great Worms.•—According to Mr.
F. E. Beddard, a London geologist,
earthworms, two' feet in length have
been found in the British Isles, and
various species as large or larger are,
known to exist in South America,
Western Africa, Australia and New
Zealand. The .largest species known,
however, inhabits South Africa. Forty
yer>vs ago a specimen was described
wliich moasured six feet two inches in
length, but it seems to bave been nearly forgotten until the other day, when
a gigantic creature of the same species
was sent to the London Zoological Gardens from Cape Colony. The longest
measurement of this worm yet taken
reaches six feet five inches, its diameter
being nearly half an inch.
Money Vegetation.—A short time
since Paul Reinsch discovered several
kinds of minute plants- including two
algae which had before been unknown
growing upon coins after having been
long enough in circulation to receivo
thin incrustations of organic nutter.
A Hungarian' botanist, Jules Sehaar*
schmidt, has more recently found the
microscopio(;iowths upon paper money,
even the cleanest specimens uot being
free from thom. He has detected seven
species,. including-'; although they nre
rare—the two new algae described by
Reinsch.
Pictures o* Sound.—Some remarkable' photographs of a nistobbullet in
its flight—under the illumination of
an electric spark—have been secured
by Prof, E. Mach, of Prague. He hu
also photographed the' Sir streams
whioh one may see over a Bunion
burner placed in sushine; and has even
obtained pictures of waves of sound,
these last being made visible by a
method in which advantage is taken of
the irreitiilar refraction of light by air
set in vibration by, sound.
A French astrouomer has found reasons for believing that a circular protuberance — presumably a volcano—
which exists in the southern hemisphere of Venus has an elevation of not
less than seventy miles. He regards
such a vast, mountain as not incom*
patihlo with the planet's volcanic naturo.

In New York they have an association called the "Gnimercy Park
Tool-House Association.', Although
virtually formed and managed and
supported hy parents, it is ostensibly a boy's concern. The object is
to provide a well filled tool-house
for each of its young members so
that he may find intelligent recreation and be put in the way of useful
development. Not only arc tliese
younj; boys taught to rely upon
themselves, thus opening the door
to originality and invention, but
they become accustomed to the mim-
agement of company concerns and
receive correct notions of individual
responsibility and self-govenmient.
The plan seems to us worthy of all
commendation, and one the adoption
of wliich would probably save the
members of the association and their
parents from a thousand regrets.
For ways that are dark it is generally supposed that a Chinaman is
peculiar; but, if reports be true,
there are some distinguished opera
singers who might get away with
even a Chinaman. Not long ago
Mile. Emma Navada was to appear
Iwfore a New York audience, but
didn't. The reasons given out for
her failure were that she had a cold,
and that she had quarrelled with
Col. Maplesou, her manager. Navada denies the quarrel, and Maple-
son says she could have sung if she
wished. In tlie face of such statements the public became anxious to
know really why tlie prima donna
didn't sing as she should have done,
and an explanation to tbe following
effect came from some operatic veteran who knows: Navada did not
sing because tlie sale of scats had
not been large enough, and she
would not appear before a thin
house. Furthermore, this authority
imparts the astonishing-.information
' that "tfheh1 d, 'jtfima donna is announced to sing, she gets hourly
bulletins from the box 'office advising hor of the sale of seats. If it is
not good by 2 o'clock, she has a
tickling of the throat,[ivith slight
febrile symptoms. If 'it does not
improve by 3, she coughs, and at 4
her pulse is high and she gets out
her certificate. It will not do to
sing for a slim audience, for then \\
would he said she did not draw. If
the explanation is correct, its publication will scarcely be regarded
with favor by the stars.
Some Nice Distinctions.
It is said that the judges in the
Mignonette cannibal case manifested
a great deal of horror for the act
for which tlie prisoners were convicted. They scrupulously avoided
anything that could be made a precedent for assuming that the taking
of human life, even under such extraordinary circumstances, would be
justifiable. It is believed, however,
that a pardon will lie granted, hut
the case may have a wholesome influence upon others placed in similar
circumstances. The yacht Mignonette was foundered in the Atlantic.
There were in one boat Capt. Dudley, tlie mate, one seaman, and a
. lioy. When nenr the point of starvation Capt. Dudley ordered the
boy to be killed so that the others
might lie saved. Upon reaching
England lio was indicted for homicide, convicted by the courts, and
sentenced to death. The result has
awakened widespread comment, A
majority of people seem to hold the
belief that the circumstances were
such as almost to justify the act,
Tliese three men were starving,
without any apparent prospect of
relief. As far as they could see
every one of them, including the
boy would soon perish. But if the
boy were killed to provide food the
others might survive and escape.
It is not likely that many persons
placed in the same circumstances
ns Capt. Dudley would havo taken
the same responsibility. It is a
• most serious thing to take the life
of a fellow-heing, even under the
most extreme circumstances. The
boy had as good a chance to escape
the horrors of starvation as Capt.
Dudley; and one life is as precious
as another. Some scientific authorities assert, howover, that men who
have come near the point of starvation have passed beyond the point
of moral responsibility. Theplocess
is of necessity one of both mental
ond physical decay. The body
maintains its heat by a process of
burning, and tho materials of this
fuel are contained in the food we
eat. "When these materials are wanting, the animal heat soon begins to
diminish and the vital force goes
with it. It is asserted with every
appearance of probability that in
the process of starvation actual decomposition begins long before
death. It need hardly bo said that
the physical and intellectual powers
are so intimately connected that one
cannot suffer without producing
sympathetic emotion on the other.
It follows of necessity that when
decomposition is going on in the
body, tho mind is undergoing material destruction, and cannot apprehend with any clearness the difference between right and wrong.
Tho moral perceptions become blunted and the man is capable of an act
which, while in a sound condition,
he would not dare to dream of. It
is difficult to see how, under such
circumstances, a starving man could
properly be held guilty of homicide.
Onr City Fathers.
It' is now* time-'for the people
of this city to be concerning themselves about the council of 1885.
We aro afraid that too little serious
thought and too much humbug sometimes become mingled with municipal elections, and tho result is
seen in the material out of -which
corporations are made. There is no
privilege conferred upon the people by the municipal act of greater
importance, and carrying with it a
greater responsibility, than the
privilege of selecting the persons
who are to make our municipal
government. Without competent
men at the head of affairs there can
be no intelligent expectation that
affairs will be managed with economy or judgment. But this matter
has been placed by the legislature
so fully in the hands of the electors
themselves that if unsuitable men
happen to be returned to our municipal councils, the people are not
only the sufferers, but the persons
who ought to suffer. It is important that men competent*" to fill
the position of councillors should
be selected early and that their
names should be published so
that the people may have a
full opportunity of discussing
their fitness. This would prevent the embarrassment which sometimes results from finding that there
are fewer candidates than offices;
and it would greatly lessen the
chances of having a candidate
sprung suddenly upon the eloctors-
without giving them time to con,
sider his claims or qualifications.
It is to be hoped that none of those
who are fit for the position of
trust will shrink from the duty if
asked by the people. It frequently
happens that the best men exhibit
an unwillingness to enter either the
municipal council or the legislature.
This should not be. The world lias
need of men, good and true, and it
never needed them moro than now.
Events are hurrying us forward
with a rapidity which our forefathers could never have dreamed
of, and by the aid of invention and
accumulated knowledge one is now
able to accomplish in a day what in
the last century would have been
the work of a month. Tlie need of
wise councillors and wise administration becomes great in proportion
to the interests over which they
have to preside. We hope the people will select the very best men
for "the municipal council, and that
these men will not let self interest
or convenience or modesty forbid
them to accept the proffered honor.
These observations apply with equal
force to city and rural municipalities. It may be said with truth
that with all of them the coming
year will be one of special importance. It is oxpected thu4. the im-
miirratiou of 1885 will be. unusually large. The completion of the
C, P. R. will - greatly change the
avenues of trade, and bring into
existence interests which are not
now to be found. There will be
new roads wanted and uow facilttes
for the accommodation of increased
population. In this city especially
there will be need of judgment and
prudence. Ever since 18J59 wo
have enjoyed the distinction of
being the largest city nud the com-'
mercial metropolis of the mainland.
That distinction we enjoy to-day,
but next year our right to it may be
disputed. , There will undoubtedly
spring up on Burrard Inlet a city
which will be in many respects a
rival. Thoso iu whose hands are
entrusted the management of city
affairs will have to make uso of
every legitimate means to prevent
the magnitude of the terminal city
from overshadowing our own. ■ We
havo faith iti the- future of New
Westminster, but at this critical
moment sho may suffer inestimable
damage from & false step on the
part of her constitutional governors, With respect to the present
council, it is one of the best the
city ever  had.      With very few
exceptions its members have devoted tlieir energies faithfully and
honestly to what thoy regarded as
the best interests of the city. Unfortunately some of the most important schemes put forward by them
this year havo failed, but they are
not by any means alone responsible
for those failures. They have also
made some mistakes, but the wisest
heads are liable to err. There is no
person who can at once become
familiar with the corporation business, and we believe it would be in
the city's interest if at least a majority of tho present councillors
were returned to the council of 1885.

rticlos in the French, Belgium and
Dutch papera have appeared catling attention to the*advantages that British
Columbia offers to'suitnble immigrants,
and detailing tho great future in store
for the colony, when it is opened up
by tho Canadian Pacifio and Island
Railways. Owing to'tho enlightened
polioy pursued by the government, the
province is no longer a term incognita
to the Old World, and .you can always
rely upon my best efforts being directed to tho permanent progress of the
province."
Railway Progress,—Major Rogors,
who hns just returned from tho upper
country, reports that there'arc not
now more than 225 miles of traok to
be laid to connect tho lino from Burrard Inlet to Lake Superior. Ho be
lieves the road .will reach Kamloops
next April, and Siokmnouse Narrows
in July. ..From there to the Columbia
River is only 43 miles, and he thinks
tho two ends wilt meet near the Columbia. Mr. Sohriober, who went over
the route not long ago, wrote to Major
Rogers that in hia opinion the rond
might bo completed in August. There
is a large force of ■ men atill at work,
and operations will be continued
through the winter wherever pruoticn-
ble.
Halifax to tub Terminus.---The
road north of Lake Superior will be
finished by April noxt. There will
then be a complete line of (all rail)

tourist, sporting, and other traffic.

 ♦       ——
The Mail Service —The mail clerk
on the O.P.R. informs us that In tht
Columbian bundles right names some*
times get into wrong packages, which
causes delay in delivery. He claims
that if pnokngos aro made up with caro
they wilt be delivered promptly, It
is quite possiblo that mistakes may
sometimes occur iu making up the
packages nt this ofllce. According to
tho present arrangement al) papers
going by the railway must be delivered
at (he post offloe by 0 o'clook on Tuesday nnd Friday nights. It often happens that in ordor to catch the mails,
great expedition is necessary, and
w here there is hasto there is sometimes
error. In so far as these mistakes in-
t erf ure- with tho prompt delivery of
papers, of course the mails' nre not
responsible; but this ■cannot explain
awny the irregularities which have
sometimes been reported to ub, At
Johnston's' Landing, for example, we'
woro informed that for two or threo
weeks no copies of The Columbian
were received. Wo have never doubted that tho ninil clerk was doing the
very bost ho could with tho service as
now arranged. Our controversy was
not with the mail clork, but with the
carrying arrangements. The south
side of the rivor cannot be satisfactorily served so loug as the mail is
carried by railway on the . north side.
In winter thoro aro always great difficulties and dangers in crossing thu
river, and tho only way the south side
settlements can bs served is by the
wagon road and the rivor.
Locatiko thk Extension.—Major
Rogors and party nrrived from tho interior last Friday night for the purpose of locating tho C. P. R. exten-
tion from Port Moody to Cont Harbor, Tho written instructions luive
not yot nrrived. but tho major will go
on iu accordance with a telegram roceivod from Mr. Van Homo asking
him to locnte this line. It is intended
to run the lino from Port Moody
down the south shore of Burrard Inlet to Conl Harbor. Iu reply to a
question Major Rogers said the locating of this lino did not imply tho
abandonment of the middle route at
nll. In his opinion tho railway bom*
puny would need ut least nino miles of
wharves on tho inlot. Tho wharf and
harbor accommodation nt Port Moody
wero altogether insufficient, aud thero
would be wharves constructed from
Coal Harbor all the wny up. The
peninsula between the inlot and the
Fraser River would eventually ho like
the mouths of tho Mississippi —
branches would shout out from tho
main line of railway touching overy
harbor that was worth soeking. There
might be a branch via Burnaby Lake
to English Bay, nnd one to Now Westminster. He did not think there was
nny probability that tho syndicate
would leave this city and harbor without railway connection, Major Rogers' present headquarters uro 'at the
end' of ttie North Road, and he intended to begin operations yesterday.
He is accompanied by Mr. E. J. Rob
erts, C. E., aud a pnrty of 10 or 12.

printed at thia offlce on Monday and
now being circulated for signatures,
beforo Bonding it to. Washington, D. C,
Please sign it. A copy of tho petition
may bo found at the City Drug Store,
and else where ou the Sound, already
signed by a large number of persons :
The undersigued resident* of* Puget
Sound bog leave to represent: That tlie
completion of the Northern Pacific Railway, aud proximate completion of the On-
nadiau Pacific, nlong with tho attendant
developments from influx of immigration
into ttie mainland counties adjacent to
the national boundary line, demands the
spoedy establishment of Custom facilities
nt either Whatcom or Semiahmoo. and
the .extension of the first-class steamer
service of the Trunk Mail Line of the
Sound, uow terminating at PortyTowu-
tsend, along the mainland shores otj Skagit
and Whatcom counties, touching at'An
acortcs, Gueuies, Satnish, Bcllihgham,
New Whatcom, Whatcom to Semiahmoo,
(ou the boundary lino) situated near New
Westminster, nnd the terminus of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
It is easy to understand what benefits will accrue to tho generalipublic
from this, nnd it is to bo lio|fcd tlio
departments nt Washington will act
upon it without hesitancy. During
thu last session of congress a bill was
presented, and which is now ponding,
asking that Semiahmoo be mndo a port
of entry and clearance. Owing to the
completion of the Canadian Pacific
tho traveling publio and business interests demand bettor customs facilities commercially, and the entire Sound
country should work to secure easier
communication with the Canadian
Pacific terminus. We can all afford
to work together to secure what tho
above petition asks for.—-Whatcom

800 Hydah Indians, a vory remarkable race of poople. The most common type of the adult unmixed Hydah is about five feet, seven inches in
height, thick-set, largo-bonud, with
fairly regular broad features, coal-
black liair and oyos, and* a bronze
complexion. They have generally—
both men and women—finely developed breasts and fore-arms, caused by
their almost daily use of the canoe
paddle from infancy. A fow have
well-formed legs, though the greater
number are defective in this respect,
resulting from much sitting, or rather
squatting in their canoes, in and
around their lodges, with but comparatively littlo walking. Their foet
are so short, broad and thick through
the instep, that shoes are made by the
manufacturer expressly for them.
Some of the young men wear a moustache, and a scanty beard is occasionally scon upon* the fnco of the old
men, though both generally eradicate
such hnir as it grows. Only the women
nud medicine men permit the hair of
tlio head tu grow long. They walk
with a springy light tread and agiln
stop, though T easily outran a young
Indian of Massett, who matched himself against me. Some of them are
very strong, in the arms, an Indian of
Skidegate beating me at "tug of war.''
Many are expert swimmers, sometimes
diving from their canons into the rough'
sea, und bringing nut wounded seal
which have sunk to the bottom. One
of my men performed suoh n feat,
springing from the ton of n great rock,
where the ocean was breaking. Thoy
are intelligent and quiok to learn from
observation.
There nre, probably, more well
formed and featured people among tho
Hydahs thnn any other aboriginal
taoe, though thore are none which can
be considered handsome; indeed I
have never soon ah Indian bonuty, nor
an adult Indian woman of graceful
movement. Black hair* nnd oyes.
white teetli nnd occasionally n rich
olive complexion am thoir chief attractions. The Indians ngo rapidly
nnd aro shorter lived than tho whites.
Thoy suffer most from pulmonary und
venereal diseases, the races of many
being scarred by the latter in its worst
forms. Small pox has also destroyed
them by tho hundreds.— From Prof.
Chittenden's Report.
Spouting Oil-Wells In Russia.
The principle oil-wells of tho Baku-
district He at Bataxiuno or Bnlakhani,
about nis miles to tho northeast of the
town. This is an oil-field about threo
nnd a half miles in length by ono and
a half in breadth. To the south'lies a
smaller field called Bebebat. One
fountain nt Balnkhina, ninety-eight
foet in depth, is noted as hnving been
flowing steadily for upward of two
years, nnd still continuing to yield 800
barrels a day. Another well not fur
off, 400 foot deep, commenced its career by throwing up n jet thirty feot in
tho air, and thon flooding the land
with oil for n considerable distance nil
around, overflowing other wells and
several small refineries, so as to effectually stop their work. Tho roar of the
rushing oil aud gas could bo heard a
milo from thu spot.
Various flowing wolls uro said to
yield 0,000 barrels a duy, nnd some far
moi'o ; but, from the fact that those
quantities t.ro generally stntod ill the
Russian measure of poods, it iB not
vory easy to realize what is meant.
Ouo pood, wo learn, is equal to thirty-
six puuuds English. Henco one thou*
sand poods represent somewhere nbout
sixteen tons. Accounts have just
reached England of nn oil-fountain.
which was struck last December, aud
flows at tho rato of from fifty to sixty
thousand poods daily, gushing forth
with such force as to break in pieces a
three-inoti cast-iron plate whioh had
been fastened over tho well in ordur to
divert tho How in a particular direction. In tho same district n lingo heap
of sand marks the spot where au oil-
spring, on being tupped, straightway
threw up a column of petroleum to
twice tho height nnd size of the Grent
Geyser in Iceland, forming a huge
black fountain two hundred feet in
height—a fountain, however, due solely to the pressure on the confined gas,
for thoro is uo tracu of volcanic heat.
The fountain was visible for many
miles round, und on tho first day it
poured forth two million gallons, equal
to fifty thou'nud bnrrels.
An enterprising photographer who
wns on tlie spot secured a photograph
wliich places this matter beyond cavil.
The fount nm continued to play for five
mouths, gradually decreasing week by
week, till it finally censed to piny,
leaving its unfortunate owners, an Armenian o'jinpnny, well-nigh ruined by
the claims brought against them by
neighbors whose lands were destroyed
by the flood of oil—Popular Science

Chinese Arguments.
HOW THE RESTRICTION UWU EVADED.
New York, Dec. 1.—The Executive
Committee of the Chinese Benevolent
Protective Brotherhood of this city
hold its annual meeting on Mott streot
yesterday, tlie principal business be*
iug action on tho reports of the committeo presented on Saturday on the
subject uf Chinese immigration. During the discussion Quong Long said
that ho had consulted two tawyers.wlw
advised him that the law restricting
Chinese immigration whh very incomplete and could be easily circumvented. Merchants could immigrate
without trouble. . It applied to citizens
of'tnu Chinese' Empire, not those of
othor nationalities. Any Chinaman
could, after procuring naturalization
papera from othor countries, outer tho
United States without molestation. At
Hongkong papers can bo obtained for
£2 10s. French papers cost 40f, Peruvian $5, Spanish $8, and Chilean
$10. Most Consuls would issue papers
of.mtroftui.hi order to increase their
HMfMiSj undor the treaties of thu
United StatoB, tlio officials would pass
thu holders of tlm same. Thu imist of
these papers were fraudulent, but at
present thero wns no legal way of going behind them to prove fraud. Five
weoks ago 'thirty-eight Chineso with
Spanish papers unme to Now Yoik from
Havana, and pasted tho custom houso
in' no time. Another way of evading
any Chinese Inw wns to come to this
country by way of Victoria. In British
Columbia there is no law in tho Dominion against them, and once landed
they can cross the frontier with great
faoility.
Jung Fro Tain said the way to beat
the wicked law was to tight fire with
fire. Americans can hardly tell one
Chinaman from another.' It was vory
easy to buy a certificate iu China from
a returned laundrymttn or merchant,
and como over here under Iub name.
At Hongkong and Canton there wore
American brokers who sold forged certificates at 816 each. With these a
man could come over under his owu
name.
Yul Shift Kee made a speech, in
whicli he said : " The troublo is uot
with us as a race, but with the contract
labor'system, Americans are beginning to soe it applies just as well to the
Germans, Swedes, Bohemians and
Hungarians as tu our race. I am
strongly opposed to the system, and
hope the law wilt remain iu forco, Justico demands that it bo extended to all
races, nnd not confiiiod to the Flowery
Kingdom. More hai in is caused by
importing skilled contract labor for tbe
mills nnd factories of this country than
by importing coolies who enn only dig
nnd farm.' Au intelligent Chinaman is
liko nn intelligent Amorican. He
works for as much money as ho can
get ; is always scheming to get more ;
takos ntlvnntago of n rise or a fall iu
the markets, besides the trades unions
and new inventions. Were it not for
absurd prejudice and unjust laws, he
would Blny hero and mako this hind his
homo. It ia a good country, and when
the use of liquor U discountenanced,
and educational restrictions aru put
upon"the ballot, wid public offico, it
will be as good as ours."
Tho committee agreed to memorialize Congress to extend the restriction
laws to other nationalitics, so as to
prohibit all enntruct labor ; also disqualifying all citizens who cannot rend
or write.

NEWS FROM AU. PARTS OF TNE WMU.
Pams, Dec. 3,—The first results of the
Congo Conference will contain small satisfaction for France, as all recent French
acquisitions have been placed under the
International Association's regime.
Edinburgh, Dec. 3.—Mr. Stanley addressed the inaugural meeting of the
Scottish Geographical Society, discussing
the Congo Territory. He said although
the British actually possess the greater
portion ol the Nile basin England was
likely to loose a portion of the trade, because the stout-hearted, persistent Germans had planted their standard and had
proposed to found a colony upon tlie
) southern edge. Tho Berlin Conference
had signed, scaled and delivered what the
British voluntarily abaudoncd. Although
to-day British enterprise and skill were
unsurpassed it must continue to advance
or the day is not far distant when England will be outstripped.
New York, Dec. 5.—Beecher, Bpeak-
ing of ttie death of Francis D. Moulton,
wliich was announced yesterday, said
to a Commercial reporter: "I oould say
many kind tilings of Moulton, and some
things uot complimentary. His hand
was turned against me, but he could not
help it; lie had committed himself in the
conspiracy against me, and was compelled
to take tho stand he did. I know from
good sources that he has regretted his
action since. The real truth of that gre«t
conspiracy against me has never been
given to the public. Moulton held many
papers, documents and letters that have
never been produced. I know full well
the underlying reasons for this conspiracy,
but, iu evidence, 1 could not prove them.
I may speak more fully of Moulton later.
I may tell what I know some day."
New York, Dec. 0.—Sir John Mac-
Donald, Prims Minister of Canada, arrived from Europe yesterday. Being interviewed, he said: "The Canadian Pacific railway will be completed fcoin tlie
Atlantic to the Pacific beforo the end of
1885, and be fully opened for traffic in
the spring of 1886. Tho company will
havo a line of steamships running to
China from Port Moody as Boon as the
railway is open, and this line will probably receive a mail subsidy from tho government of Canada, as well as England.

Dayton, O., Dec. 10.--Last evening
Barrett's circus passed through tills city
on its way East, but was stepped hy a
burnt C. C. C. k 1. Railway bridge near
Eton, 17 miles from Dayton. A monster
jaguar escaped from a cage, and ita escape
was not heard of by the owner, J. L.
Shoemaker, until this morning. The
beast, finding itself released, fled rapidly
across the country, alarming poople who
were up late last night, stampeding cattle, wounding many, killing many, and
sucking the blood of others. About midnight the beast had reached the vicinity
of Dryden's mills, five mileB south of
this city, where farmer William Lesber
was awakened by a grent commotion in
his hog pen. He got up aud with a neighbor, a gun and a lantern, found a dead
hog and the jaugar killing another. The
rest were Btpiealing and dashing about
the pen trying to get out. He shot the
animal iu tho hind parts, It jumped at
tho men, chased them into the house,
took a drink and fled down the pik«.
The whole country was alarmed and hundreds of men with rifles and Bide arms
searched all night. At daylight two
women signalled distress and the men
hastening to their relief found and shot
the jaguar dead in the outhouse of Dr,
Wenat at Alexanderville.

London, Deo. 14.?-An explosion at
London Bridge occurred at about ii:40 o'*
o'clock last evening. 'I be public think a
boat containing the explosives and burning a fuse was nicely timed to cause an
explosion when half way beneath the
bridge. The damage is slight though the
darkness prevented a thorough examination. The explosion was heard 10 miles
out of London, and at Woolwich Arsenal
the gates were shaken. Beyond the tin-
deniable fact of au attempt to blow up
the bridge tbe publio have uo information. It is uow supposed that the dynamite used in the explosion was dropped
over the bridge and alighted on n hut-
tress. Tlie damage done consists chiefly
of broken windows in houses in the vicinity, A bootblack relates his experience
of the explosion as follows : I was cleaning a gentleman's boots when suddenly ]
felt tlie^-arth shake around me. Immediately afterwards there was an explosion and I was stunned. When I recovered consciousness the gentleman had
disappeared. The buttress on which the
explosion is supposed to have alighted is
only slightly damaged. Persons crossing
the bridge at tbe time of the explosion
were thrown down, and many gas jets in
the vicinity wero  extinguished by the
concussion.

A Pretty Woman's experiment.
I hold it to bo a truth constantly
solf • evident that ' overy man will
defend a woman against all women except himself. If you haven't
noticed it already, you have only to
look for it in an hour or su in any
place of mixture of the sexes. Clap
your eyes oa a pretty woman without
mhle'escort,'!und twA phenomena will
become obvious. Firstly, there will be
a large amount of open und covert
sturing nt her, to nll of which her obliviousness is, of course, only assumed.
Secondly, if one of tho staters happeiiB
to realize that others are at tho same
game, he will manifest plainly Iub disgust at such treatment, of an unprotected beauty, utterly ignoring his own
offence. A husband and wife got into
a street car. The man was somewhat
dudish in dress, The woman was under twenty, and as pretty as nature
nnd art aro in the habit of combining
to produce. Thoy were chatting on
the very subject that I havo here introduced.
"Percival, dear," said she, "I will
prove to you that I am right, and will
take only ten minutes to do it, if you'll
promise not to got angry about it"
Ho closed the contract. Then she
drew herself up, as though the hus*
band sitting beside hor was an entire
stranger, and waited for the car to fill
with-passengers ut Union Square.
"Now," sho whispered behind her
fan, ''observe how I am ogled when
aloiio."
Within fivo minutes he saw that half
a dozen masculine passengers from
hoary n«u to callow youth eyed his
brido with more or loss audacity, and
sovcr.il manifestly would not have
needed the smallest beginning of a
wink on her part to seize upon her then
and thero. That part of tho exhibition
was a triumph for the wife, but the
must curious feature of hor experiment
remained to be tried.
"You certainly do mean to attract a
good deal of admiration," said the hus-
baiid, supposing that tho protended
HtrnttgoueBB was at an ond. She lifted
her eyebrows iu simulated surprise, as
though nu impertinent follow had nn*
uiirroiitedly accosted hor, and pointedly turned her faco from him. Ho understood her now, nnd did not speak to
her further. Next shu drew her shoulder away from contact with him. By
this time*the speculators wore Miev-
ing that ho was annoying ber dreadfully, aud scornful glancos wero aimed at
him. A man arose from ttie opposite
side, "Will you exchange srata with
me?" he .very politely and gallantly
said, lifting Iub hat ino-t deferentially.
Now he had been foromoat among
the original oglers—tho veriest simpleton of them all.
"Thank ynu, Btr," sho replied, "bnt
I prefer to sit beside my husband."
Thus with tho same stono sho* killed
that vulture bird and tho dove mate
whom she had undertook to instruct
as to the ph.losopliyof male gallantly.

A REMARKABLE STORT.
(Continued.)
"What do we want with tho old
things' here V she said, "they would
much rather be in bed, and the best
place for them. I don'fc supposo you
mean to do anything wrong, any of
you girls, and if you did they wouldn t
stop you. If you can't tako care of
yourselves, if you want a chaperon,
there1! mo. And there's Fanny Wil-
loughby, and Lilian Melville and Maud
Setonj they've all been married as long
as I have. Wliere could you iind
Btoadier married women l and ain't we
enough to chaperon a couplo of dozen
girU? I never pretend to ask old people, unleBs it waB just to lot them ace
how everything looks, poor old things,
once in a whilo."
This being tho creed of thn miBtress
of- the feast, it is not to be supposed
that her disciples wero moro catholic.
And there was no limit to the fun
which the young people promised
themselves. To do them justice, it was
very innocent fun. The groatost sin
on the conscience of thu wildest romp
in the place was that of having danced
ten times with a partner, bcaidos sitting out aU the square dances, of which
there were only two, lit his company.
Algernon himself had insisted upon
two. He said it was respectable ; and
lie danced buth with tho least popular
of tho fttur ladies, tlmt they might not
feel themselves alighted, for ho was a
very good fellow. (   #
'•Did you ever see such a muff," his
wife said, who nevor condescended to
tho Lancers, "I do believe ho likes to
hop about with tlio ugliest thing he
can pick up. I thought I had kept
out all tho ugly girls, but I haven't
Bucceeded. If there is one, Algy is
■   Bure to find her out,"
"To show you that you have no
need to ho jealous," some ouo said.
"Oh, jealous I" cried Ellon, with supreme disdain.
The young Merridews, brothers and
Bisters, thought her the most wonderful creature that had ever been born.
Her light hair wns iu curls and frizzes,
newly come iu and extremely captivating, all over her head. Her drcsa was
a sort of purple, a color nobody but
heraelf ventured to wear, but whicli
threw up her fairness with tho most
brilliant effect. She had all hor jewelry on, from the diamonds Harry had
spent all hia available money, under
her own directions, in buying for hor,
tu the little bracoletcontributed bythe
clerks at tho bank. Her arm was
covered nearly up to tho olbow,and the
sound sho made when they fell over
her hands And she had to push them
back again was wonderful. It was liko
a whole concert of fairy music, tho
bangles representing the higher notes,
tho big golden manacles furnishing a
hass. She liked to hold up her. hands
nnd shake them back with a protty cry
of "Tiresome ! Why is one forced to
wear all this upon one?" Ellon said.
And Mra. John had accomplished
her wish. She had got, if not throe,
at loast two now dresses for Heater,
one upon hor shoulders at this moment, the other, the black one, laid
up all ready in the box. Wliite, of
course, was tho first... It had. tho silk
slip upon which Mrs. John had sot her
heart, which was so much moro thrifty
than anything else ; which could be
covered over again and again, as she
pointed out to her daughter, and which
at the present moment waa veiled iu
floods and billows of tarlatan. Tarlatan waa the fashion of thoso daya; anything that was limp, that took, as people now love to say, "nice folds," being considered utterly dowdy. Aud
when Hester appeared iu those crimp
puffings, with her pearls round her
throat and white flowers in the hair
which her mother called auburn, even
young Mrs. Merridew herself held hor
breath. She turned her cousin round
aud round again to examine her.
"Well, I call that a beautiful dross,"
sho said. "Who put itinto your head
to get a dress like that ? Why, it ia the
height of the fashion! Those ooinV-
lonees are just the right thing to wear.
And do you menu to say these are real
pearls 1 Oh go away, or I shall kill
you ! Why have I not pearls 1 They
are far more dintiiujne, oh, far more,
than my paltry bits of diamonds. Oh,
take her away, ur I shall not be ablo to
keep my hands off hor! And such
flowers ! They muat havo come from
Forster's. I am certain they came
from Fursler'a. Mine aro French, but
they are not so pretty," Ellen said.
Hester st'jod and smiled while these
enmments were made, though with a
half sense uf Bhame. Sho thought it
annoyed her very much to bo subjected
to such a survey, and so, no doubt, it
would have done had tlio result uot
boen so satisfactory ; but it ia hard to
be really displeased by approbation.
As for Ellen, sho whispered behind
her hand to Harry. "Thu old lndy
must have a great dual more than we
think for. She must have been saving
up. You don't get a dress like that for
nothing."
"It's not the dress; sho always looks
nico, whatever alio puta ou," said tho
faithful Harry.
His sister contemplated him with
eyos full of contempt. " What is thu
use of •talking to euch a silly ?" shu
said, Not tho dress? She nover looked one leii-thousaiidth part ao woll in
all her life, and that you know juat aa
woll as I."
No, she had never looked so well all
hor nineteen years. Her dress was
simple indeed, hut it was perfect in all
its dotails, for Mrs. John had lomeni*
berod everything. The flowers were
artificial, which also were tlio fashion
then, but they woro from Forster's,
procured by Roland Ashton and then
brought down by his sister Emma,who
had arrivod that sumo afternoon.' Tiio
pearls were beautiful, more beautiful
than any other urnnment iu tho room,
Hestor stood beside hev cousin to receive tlio guests with a sense that thero
woro nu imperfections about her. In
the days of tho washed muslin there
was always a fear that the flounces
wero not quite even, the bows wero
U»i quite (irmly sowed on,or something
else whicli at any moment might como
to pieces and betray tho huine-made-
VfM of the gauuont. But she stood
up in her virgin robes with n sense of
delightful security—a knowledge thnt
all waa complete, wliich whb exhiliarat-
ing to her spirits. Sho was not the
one white swan in this little provincial party. There wero faces quite ns
Idvefy as Hester's, which, as a matter
of fact, waa not quito ns perfect aa hor
drew, but thero was no one to whom
the anticipated pleasure was so entirely ideal. Her mind did not como
down to practical delights at all. BIio
wm going to be happy. Was sho going
to be happy ? How does it fuel to bo
happy 1 Theso wero tho questions iu
her mind. Sho had boen so, sho wns
aware, h children are, without knowing it; but (hia would be conscious,
what ever it was.
The dancing began.   It was a very
pretty sceno, and Hestor, not in her
self so overwhelmingly gay as tho others about hor, waa caught upon that
stream of careless youth and carried
with it in spite of herself. An atmoa-
phoro of pleasure was about her, eyes
lookod upon her admiring, almost caressing, overy glunco was pleasant; tho
rougher part of the world had disappeared altogether. It was as if tliere
waa almost nothing but merry dancers,
laughing engagements, an interchange
of enjoyment all about. Happy!
Well, ahe could not aay that this was
not happiness. It might bo so, for
anything bIio could tell. There was
not much that was ideal about ifc, but
yot— Just as she wits thinking this,
sho felt iu a moment of repose hor
hand suddenly taken, drawn into somo
one else's hand ; and, looking around
suddenly, saw Edward closo to her,
looking at hor With a subdued glow in
hia eyes, a look of admiration and wonder. It was quito a steady, straightforward gaze—not furtive,'not flying.
She Blurted at the touch and. look, and
attempted to draw away her hand, but
it waa held fust. Uut he had not lifted hor hand, iio had taken it where it
hung half veiled by hor furbelows, nnd
ho had turned his back toward tho
company, isolating her in a corner
whilo ho inspected hor, Ho drew a
long breath, uppnrontly of satiafaotion
and pleasure.
"I am late," ho said, "but thia was
worth waiting for. Cinderella, where
liavo you loft your pumpkin coach ?■!
Hosier's brow grow dark ; hor heart
seemed to bwooh away in her bosom altogether, then camo to itBolf with a
rush of heat and indignation. Sho
wrenched liorhwid out ot that hold—
a Hood uf color came to her chocks.
"I suppose you moan to ineult mo,"
sho said; "but this ia not a placo to insult mo; I am among friends here."
"Why do you say so, Hester? Insult you ! What an ungenerous thing
to any. As if I was in the habit of doing so, and must not horo because you
havo friends. What a cruol thing to
Bay." ,   .
"Would you rather have it m your
power to insult mo always ?" said Hester. Her lip began to quiver a littlo.
What nn odious thing it ia to ho n woman, to bo always ready ivhon you
would rather not, when you want to
show yoursolf moat strong and angry,
to cry. Sho olinohod her hands tightly
to keep herself down "I am no cinder-wench, Mr. Edward Yemen," she
said. "I ave giv.on you no reason to
call mo so. It isa'pitiful thing fur a
man to notice a girl's dress. If 1 am
dressed poorly, T am nutashamed of it-
It is not a sin tube poor."
"Heste-1 A 1 of yuur sense to bo
so foolish. Hun could I mean that?
What I mor.iit was, that you have como
out glorious, like the moon from th?
clouds, Nothing could be swoeter than
that littlo house-frock that you wore
on the Common. I liked it bettor than
all the finery. Uut to-night you are
like a young princess. Why did I say
Cinderella I Heaven knows. Just because I was dazzled and bewildered,
and because you are a princess, and the
pleasure of seeing ynu mado my head
go round. Havo I made i. j peace ?
Well, then, there's a darling, now turn
round aud let mo eoe you, that I may
soe all tho finory, and everything that
makes you so lovely, in dotail."
"You may have made it a little better," aaid Heater, "but why du you go
on talking liko that 1 1 am neither
lovely nor a darling, and yuu ahall not
aay so; you, that would uot seo ine if
this.instoadof boing Ellen's house.were
tho Grange."
"You have me at your mercy thore,
Baid Edward.   "I confess you have mo
at your mercy there."
Upon which Heater molted a littlo,
and perceiving the abashed look wliich
he had put on, began to falter, and
presently found horself guilty of the
commonplace oxpedient of asking if ho
did not think it a pretty scone.
"Oh, very pretty," said Edward ;
that is to say, I don't know anything
about it. I lookod fur one individual
when I came in, and as—as soon as I
found her she began tu bully me violently, ao I fool a littlo muddled, and I
don't know what to think. Give me a
little time."
By this time, as was natural, Hoster
began to think heraelf a monster of
folly and unkindii03S,atid to think that
ahe was ready to sink through the
flour with shame.
"I did not moan to be cross," alio
said. "I thought—that is, I had been
looking—that is"
Here sho stopped, fooling herself got
deeper and deeper into difficulty, Her
countenance changed from tho girlish
freshness of complexion which everybody admired into a burning rod, her
eyelids unable to keep up, her heart
heating as if it would burst through
silk slip, and tarlutm honillonec and
alb
Come, let us havo this dunce ; I
like tho music," Baid Edward, drawing
her hand suddenly through his arm.
"Hut I am engaged."
"Oh, never mind if yuu aro engaged.
You wero engaged to mo before ever
you came," ho said, lightly, and drew
hor into tho whirl. Hestor was at tho
age, in society, when, to throw over a
partner, looks like tho guiltiest treachery. . Sho could not tako any pleasure
in tho danco for tlio thought of it.
"I must go and ask his pardon. I
am Bure 1 am very sorry. I did not
intend to he ho false ; and then: lie is,
poor man, not dancing."
Those words Boater said breathless over tho shoulder uf thu enterprising intruder, who had carried her ulf
undor tho victim's oyes.
"Poor man," Edward echoed, with a
laugh. I um glad ho has nobody to
danco with. What right had lm to engage you ? And you regret him, and
you don't want ino."
Hero Hester rebuked her cousin.
"You hnvo no right to say so. I
might want— I mean I might liko vory
well to danco with you when you condescend te ask me, hut uut to be run
away wilt) without a word and mado to
do a fnlso thing. Falso things nre what
I hate."
"You say that with auch moaning.
Yuu must bo thinking of more than a
danco. Am I ouo of tho faUe things
you hale ?"
"I I do not hide you," said Hoster,
aa thoy came to a pause, looking
doubtfully into his fnce. "But I do
not think you are vory truo."
j'You mean I don't blurt out everything 1 moan, and am capable, nuw
and then, of keeping something to myself, 1 can keep my own counsel, nut
liko that fellow thero," Edward permitted himsolf tu aay, which wns »
mistake, for Hestor looked up and saw
thu gaze of honest Harry dwelling upon
hor with somo rugrot nnd much tender*
dess, nnd wns touched nt once with
sympathy and indignation.
"If you mean Harry,one cuuld novor
doubt him," said Hester, lu the warmth
of her compunction. "If ho is your
friend, he is always yuur friend. Ho
is nut nfrnid of whnt i-:*y ono says."
