current Events ana Opinions.
Lord Randolph Churchill started
out to shake up the dry bones in the
Tory camp. The work suits hint
and even the sneers and snarls of
the mugwumps fail to stop hiin.
Churchill has the courage of his convictions and is strengthening, the
Conservative party in its weak
parts. Conservative leaders who
"take" with the' masses cannot be
spared. Further they cannot be
bounced. Churchill has missis to
stay.—Canadian-A wiei-ifsan.
Sir Francis Hindis lived a good
life. He rose to high oflices by tho
.force of his own talents. He was a
most active public man for forty
years und did a vast amount of
work in moulding political opinion
in thc old provinces, and later on
the Dominion felt the force of his
statesmanship and keen political
thought As a writer on tinnncial
matters be had not his peer in the
country, His active brain and
great energy kept him before the
people up to within a few days of
his death. His seventy-eighth year
found him the chief editorial contributor of the. Montreal Journal of
Commerce, a powerful financial
newspaper—made so by Hindis'
ability. The solitary funeral of
Thursday should bo followed by an
agitation for the erection of a statue
to Hincks in the parliamentary
grounds at Ottawa. The lifo of a
nation is seen in its monuments and
as ono who was for many years
closely identified with the history of
tho Dominion tho departed statesman should bo honored in this manner. —Canadian-American.
Whatever its ultimate value us a
business enterprise the. Canadian
Pacifio Railway is certainly going
to provide liberal things for tho public who will get the benefit of its existence. It is thoroughly a modern
American railway of the best class,
in construction nnd equipment. Its
builders have had tho benefit of tho
combined oxperience of the railway
world, and starting uew, without
old patterns and old methods to interfere with their design, thoy aro
able to proceed upon the plan of
getting the bost of everything. The
equipment of tho Canadian Pacific
is remarkably excellent and beautiful. Locomotives, sleeping cars,
dining cars, coaches of all classes
und all other equipment and appliances show the results of the adoption of high standards, followed by
lavish expenditures of money. Perhaps tho most sumptuous and expensive sleeping and dining curs in
existence are those which lire about
to commence doing duty betweon
Montreal and Winnipeg. Amorican
railway men hardly appreciate the
magnitude of the Canadian Pacific
enterprise or tho influence which it
iB destined to exert, and this hasty
glance at its present status may
are a useful effect by suggesting
practical reflections. It is only an
outline of a subject on which volumes might be written.—Ghicaijo
HaiUmy Aye,
Port Hamilton is a model naval
station. Its grand natural harbor,
entered by one deep channel commanded by high ground ond capable
of easy defence, is enclosed by two
small islands, about eighteen miles
south of tho point of the Corenn
peninsula, 850 miles from Vladivos-
took and 1200 miles from Hongkong. Uorea exercises none of the
functions of government over the
few hundred fishermen who inhabit
the island, and is unable to prevent
its subjects from murdering shipwrecked sailors. Thus thero is no
power which could offer legal objection to the occupation except China,
whieh claims a sovereignty over
Corea. Negotiations with China
have doubtless taken place. As for
protests on high moral grounds, the
only other powers affected are Russia and France, both of which have
placed themselves out of court by
their own proceedings in these seas.
After the acquisition by Russia of tho
valuable island of Sagltalieu, and
tho recent determined effort by
France to annex Formosa, the occupation of Fort Hamilton is scarcely a ground for remonstrance. The
annexation, if it has taken place, is
no real increase of Imperial responsibility in timo of peace—we arc not
undertaking to govern another Ireland—while there js a positive decrease of responsibility in time of
war, Port Hamilton can be cheaply
defended, and held by a small garrison. Failing any station nortii of
Hongkong, there would bo tho
greatest difficulty iu protecting
trade in the ovent of war. Tho
mero multiplication of defended
ports is on all accounts to be avoid-
ed. The possession of a strategic
point is a definite* increaso of naval
strength.—I-omlon Times.

Seizure or the Carolines.
WILL SPAIN AND GERMANY FICHT?
MAmun, Sept. 5.—A Bensntion was
caused here this morning on receipt of
important news from tho Oarolme
Islands. ■ Two Spanish war ships
reached Yap, ono of tho islands, on
the 21st, and prepared to occupy it in
the name of Spain. The Spanish officers wefo dilatory in landing' troups,
and uu the 24th of tho same month a
German jrimboat arrived. Although it
was 7 o'clock iu tho ovening, the German commander instantly landed a
body of marines and Bailors and hoisted the German flag .over, the jsland.
Tho Spanish officials made ari energetic protest against tho act of the Gorman commander, and tin thoUtter's
refusal to recede from the position he
had taken, telegraphed to Madrid for
instructions, A conflict between the
Germans and Spaniards at Yap is
feared; An important meeting of
leading liberals was held to-day at the
residence of Seignor Sogasti. After
discussing the Carolines question it
wns resolved that the occupation of
the island of Yap by * German gun-
boat, should: .be considered'equivalent
to a declaration of war, and if a crisis
iu tho govornmont should occur aud
the liberals bo called into power, they
would withdraw Count de Benumar,
Spanish ambassador at Berlin, and
hand Count Von Solms-Sintipwalde,
German ambassador nt Madrid, liis
passports. The resolutions also declared that the liberals would alio
order the Spanish authorities at the
Philippines to recovor tho territory uf
the Carolines taken possession of by
Germany, and to use force if necessary
to gain it. The adoption uf tho abovo
resolutions haa created a f*rcat sensation, Tho government has dismissed
from servico the* commanders of the
two Spanish men-of-war stationed at
Yap.
New Yoiik,! Sept. 5.--A Madrid dispatch aays: "List night official dispatches wero received by the govern*
incut that a Gorman gunboat had landed troops on tho night -of ihe 24th of
August and hoisted a German Hag
thero. The Spanish vessels San Fuorta
aud Manilla were at Yap at tho time.
Tho captains of tho Spanish vessels and
the Spanish govornment protested
against tho occupation. The Spanish
gunboats cleared their decks for action
and the Manilla wan about to open Hr*
on the German putibunt when she wai
signalled to desist, which ahe did most
reluctantly. A third Spanish vessel,
the Valestoro, has arrived at Yap bay."
This nows caused the wildest excite'
ment throughout Spain. Crowds gathered in thu streets of Madrid nll night
long, frantically gesticulating and calling the Emperor William, tho Orown
Prince, and Bismarck the viloBt names.
Several thousand peoplo shouting
"Death to Bismarck,''and "Viva Eb-
puna," mobbed the Gorman ombussy,
amnshing tho windows, breaking Into a
thousand pieces the German arms on
tho embassy building and trampling
tho fragments under their feet. Tho
embassy was completely mobbed, and
tho furniture nud mirrors were dashed
to pieces, thu peoplo almost foaming nt
tlieir mouths with frenzy. After vent*
ing their spleen thore, tho mob pro*
ceeded to thu French embassy and
cheered frantically.
Madhih. Sept. 5.—Later dispatches
respecting the German occupation of
Yap stated thnt tho governor of thut
island wished to resist the lauding of
tho Gorman marines and Biiilurs, hut
that the commander uf tho Spanish
man-of-war San Fuoutu, whieh wai
tho only vessel of that nationality in
tho harbor, refused to agree with .the
governor its to the adoption of such a
course, or to loud the latter assistance.
It is generally believed that the commander of the Spanish man-of-war
fiasco, which was expected at Yap
on tho 2lith of August, carried with
him energetieurdors. The ministers
and civil and military authorities met
King Alfonso at tho depot on his arrival in the city. Large crowds of
peoplo lined the route taken by the
royal party in going from tho depot to
tho piilnce, and shouted "Long live
Spain." Tho king waa repeatedly
greeted with cheers, Notwithstanding tho excitement tlie must perfect
order prevailed.
Hkiiun. Sopt. 5.—Tho National
Heituntj, commenting on the scenes
enacted in Madrid on the receptiono
tho tiowa of the German occupation of
Yap, saya that Spain must givo Germany necessary satisfaction for tho
events of last evening. The other
papers are silent-in regard to tho affair.
Mamui), Sept. 5.—The situation is
vory gravo. The council of ministers
has aconptud a proposition to court
martial the governor of Yap and tho
commanders of the two Spanish war
ships which arrived thero on the 21st
for negleet of duty, tho latter in not
immediately garrisoning the island
with Spanish soldiers ull thoir arrival
there, nntl the former in not hoisting
ttio Spanish flag and proclaiming tho
sovereignty of Spain ovor tho island.
Tho report that a Gorman squadron
had sailed for tho Caroline Islands is
confirmed.
Madrid, Sept. B.—An offioiul report
has been made concerning tho cabinet
council hold this afteruuon presided
over by King Alfonso. Tho report,
says that tho govornment camiot now
make public the measures decided
upon, but that the country may be
assured tlint they wero of au energetic
character, Tho report further says
Lhat the government hns decided that
negotiations respecting an outrage on
an integral part of the Spanish territory aro impossible
London, Sept. 5.—The Stnndard's
Berlin correspondent snys that Spain
has Anally nnd decidedly declined to
submit the Carolines affair to arbitration. Spain argues that tho question
of Spanish jurisdiction over the
islands has beon a fact too well known
to admit of discussion. German govornment ofHciala atill scout thu idea of
wnr.

Tbe Spec of War-
it does not seem possible that
Spain and Germany will be foolish
enough to light nbout the Caroline
Islands. Spain is not in a position
for war, nntl Germany has nothing
to gain from a contest with a nation that is on the verge'of bankruptcy, But events have become so
threatening tlmt the public miiui at
once seeks for information respecting the strength and standing of
two nations thnt are facing each
other with anger and hatred in their
hearts and arms in their hands.
Spain, we have snid, is on the verge
of bankruptcy. She carries a debt
of about §2,500,000,000, upon which
she is not able to pay full interest.
fler revenues do uot seem susceptible of any large increase, antl a halt
in the extravagance of her administration it would be foolish to expect
tit present Spain has an nrmy
nominally 152,895 strong, wliich
could be increased to 400-000 in
cose of war. But her navy is perhaps her greatest source of strength.
She has a number of really fine ironclads, and her war vessels number
124. She is probably more than a
match on tlie sea for her adversary,
Germany has only 91 war vessels,
and her navul forco is 15,400 men,
against 21-G78 in the Spanish service. But the German army is
vastly superior to that of Spain in
numbers and resources. On a peace
footing* it is 445,402, but it is capable of being expanded to 1,492,104.
Besides, Germany has almost unlimited credit and resources, and
her army is much better in hand
than that of Spain. In a campaign
of any length Spain would have no
show whatever with sueh an antagonist : in a naval conflict she might
come-off victor. Spain is not easy
of access to Germany. She could
only be reached by sea, and could
defend horself successfully against
attack from that direction by so
inferior a naval power as Germany.
The Germans, however, would have
little difficulty in taking possession
of the Spanish colonies, including
Cuba, and it may be that this is tho
very thing Bismarck is after. The
standing grudge of Prance against
Germany might afford a hope of
allies to Spain, and if that hope was
realized the area of beligerent activity might extend until every important European power would become involved. Such a contingency
may not be so remote as some people suppose, but it is i>ot probable.
Most likely the hostile attitude of
these two nations will give place to
better counsels, and the horrors of
a European war will again be avoided   So let us hope.
The Flsb Hatchery.
On Wednesday we referred to the
interference of the Victoria Board
of Trade with a view to preventing
the establishment of the military
barracks at the entrance to Burrard
Inlet for tlie defence of the mainland. There is another brief sentence in the published report of the
transactions of thc Victoria Board
o£ Trade to which we ask the attention of our readers to-day. The
sentence is as follows: "The ineffective character of the fish hatchery
arrangements has been represented
to the Dominion authorities." Now,
the Board of Trade, and the person
who reported its proceedings, and
the Colonist in which that report
was published, may all have lieen
perfectly innocent in giving to the
public such a misleading declaration; but we submit that under the
circumstances it iB most unjust to
the butchery management. We
venture to Iwlieve that every person
who read that sentence, and did not
know the facts, would instantly
conclude thnt there had been mismanagement of u serious kind in
connection with the hatchery. The
evidence given at the investigation
seems to us clearly to warrant a
very different conclusion, and with
that evidence before it the Board of
Trade should not have allowed a
statement so improper and misleading to reach the publio unexplained.
What the board failed to do, we
now propose to undertake. Some
time in February last a communication was sent to the Victoria
Board of Trade . making serious
charges against the superintendent
of the fish hatchery and its manage
ment This letter purported to
have boen written in consequence of
a statement wliich appeared in the
Cobnut to the effect that about two
million young fish had been hatched
at the hatchery und were ready to
be sent out. The writer asserts
that the system of reckoning has
been defective.   He estimates the
number of eggs put into the hatchery at 2,412,000, nnd the number
hatched at 942,500, showing a loss
of 1,469,500. This, he declares, is
the best showing that can be made,
giving tho hatchery thd benefit of
evory reasonable doubt, and allowing 2,000 eggs to each tray. But
ho gives it as his opinion that the
trays would not average more than
1,600 eggs each, and he states that
the trays of bad eggs thrown away
were sometimes piled up with probably 5,000, whereas they were
checked as only 2,000. Besides, he
had seen thousands of bad eggs
dumped out without being counted
at all. But tlie complainant has
worse things to say about the hatchery than a large shortage in the
output of fry. He declares that
Mr. Mowat, the superintendent, has
continually neglected his duties, and
that Ins brother is worse than useless. Moreover, he asserts that
most of the eggs hatched wero of inferior fish, known as white salmon,
and that, consequently, the results
are altogether most unsatisfactory.
In proof of this he asserts that the
eggs of a salmon are always the
color of the flesh of tho parent fish
at its prime, and that a majority of
tho hatchery eggs were white, and
could not be eithor sockeyes or
spring salmon, which are red.
'With the exception of a few
suquias" he says, "the rest are either
all white salmon ov half-breeds."
He goes on to say that this is well
known to the Indians, and that the
Indians employed in gathering eggs
at Harrison River for the hatchery
were laughing at Mr. Mowat's folly.
When they came across a red salmon, he says, they would call out
"Yalta pil," meaning "this is red."
It must be confessed that the accusations made by this person against
Mr. Mowat and the hatchery are
very serious; but it seems tliat he
refused to let his name become
known, and we can only guess his
identity. The Victoria Board of
Trade, instead of making enquiries
about this matter, promptly forwarded tlie anonymous letter to Ottawa, accompanied by a resolution
asking for an investigation. The
minister at Ottawa sent copies of all
the papers to Capt. Pittendrigh, inspector of fisheries for this province,
who naturally applied to Mr. Mowat
for an explanation. The explanation is given in a letter to the minister of marine and fisheries in which
evory charge made ngainst the
hatchery and its management is distinctly and emphatically denied.
Mr. Mowat maintains that the count
of eggs has been grossly misrepresented, that every precaution was
used to secure tho proper kind of
eggs, and tbat the theory put forward by the complainant with respect to the color of fish and ova is
not sound. It was his purpose to
propagate spring salmon, and he
asserts that these fish turn to a
greyish-white color before spawning,
and that the ova partakes of tho
same color, and is often almost
white. He denies that tho Indians
either laughed at him for taking
white eggs or used the expression
"yak-ka pil." The investigation included an examination of four Indians who assisted in taking fish at
Harrison river for the hatchery.
These Indians made a declaration
before Mr. J. C, Hughes in which
they deny emphatically tho assertions of the anonymous complainant. They further say that their
experience teaches them to believe
that all tho varieties of salmon
known as sockeyes turn either
wholly or partially white about the
period of spawning, and that "such
is the universal Indian belief, founded upon long experience, observation and tradition." They distinctly
deny that they laughed, or heard
anybody else laugh at Mr. Mowat
for taking white eggs, or used tho
expression, "yaka pil," and they declare that thoy know of no means
by which the color of the flesh of a
salmon can be ascertained from its
external appearance. Among the
papers produced in this investigation there are also declarations from
Caleb Windsor nnd Arthur O'Connor, employed at tbe butchery.
Windsor certifies that he counted
the eggs in several trays and found
the average as follows : spring salmon, 21,000 to 22,000; sockeys, 3,-
700 to 3,800. (It will be remembered that thc complainant averaged
1,600 eggs to the tray). Mr.
O'Connor's statement is minute and
lengthy, and goes over all the
ground. Both these men testify to
the care and judgment exercised by
Mr. Mowat in the management of
the hatchery, and O'Connor, who
has had some previous experience
at fish breeding, pronounces tho
Fraser river hatchery a great success. The whole evidence is a complete and full vindication of the
arrangements and management of
the hatchery, aud one wonders that
the Victoria Board of Trade would
permit itself to become the medium
through which such a set of ground'
less charges reached Ottawa, resting upon no better ground than the
anonymous utterances of a person
who had not the courage to let his
identity be known. We are not disposed to accuse thc board of an intention to mislead, but we charge it
and tho Colonial- with the responsibility of .placing bofore the public a
sentence whicli is undoubtedly calculated to put Mr, Mowat and
others connected witli the hatchery
in a false position before the public.

Port Moody, Sept. 7.—Great dissatisfaction bus prevailed among the
Moodyites at the way tbey havo been
treated about their mails the post
week. First, there came no mail via
Westminster on Wednesday; but it
arrivod by express late on Thursday.
People mado reasonable allowance for
the delay, it being known that the
mail steamer from Viotoria had been
detained in the Fraser river on Wednesday, by fog and smoke. But tbe
next complaint was not one of mere
delay, but of receiving no mail at all.
None came on Friday night; nono on
Saturday, although on the latter day
the acting courier camo over from
Westminster to Port Moody with his
nearly empty team; of course; none
came on Sunday; nnd none can .now
bo oxpected beforo Tuesday morning.
A pretty Btate of affairs!—Mr. Cotti,
who has just completed the erection
of two neat and capacious cottages
upon his lots ou the corner of Clarke
and Charles streets, is now commencing two others on a portion of the
same site. The work is to be pushed
forward with all possible speed.—Since
writing the above, the Port Moody
acting mail courier has again arrived
from New Westminster with team.
He snys he called at the post ofiiee for
the delayed mail, but it was refused
him! The way Port Moody is habitually treated by the Now Westminster
post master is a perfect outrage, and
cannot be much lunger endured.—
The ship James Drummond finished
discharging cargo at the close of last
week. Tho barque Gerard 0. Tobey,
the only remaining rail vessel, will
not probably hare finished unloading
within ten days to come. If there bo
no other rail ship on the passage, there
must soon be a dearth of rails on this
end of the line, if the rapid progress
from both moving termini is to be
continued.—The latest news from the
front are that, going east, the road is
graded to Griffin Lake, half-way
thruugh Eagle Pass, and the rails laid
to Eagle Landing, or ShickamouBe
Narrows. Coming west, about as
many men as can stand upon the
ground are employed in pushing forward the work, It was rumored hero,
on Sunday last, that, somewhere above
Yale, a band-car was run over by a
locomotive train, and that of its occupants ono man was killed and others
injured. Full particular* have not yot
come to hand. It is a wonder there
have been no more serious accidents,
considering the state of the atmosphere of late. No railway conditttor
could see over fifty yards ahead 'is a
rule, whilst in the night even headlights nnd lauterns were of little benefit to outsiders.—The curtain of fog
and smoke is uow so far withdrawn
that wo have a wider horizon than
has beon seen before for. nearly n
month past.—There are now no less
than four daily stuge*coachcs plying
between Westminster and Port Moody
—somo of them twice a day. Still,
the old prices are kept up; and so
many passongers walk, [Our correspondent's statements respecting the
mail service with this city seemed to
us so extraordinary that we applied tu
the postmaster for an explanation,
which he  ives bolow.- En
Dear Sir,—Referring to complaints
of mail irregularities from a Port
Moody correspondent of your paper,
whieh you have been good enough to
refer to me for explanation, I beg to
say that your correspondent has allowed himself to be seriously misled.
The fact is that Port Moody haa received during the past eight days all
the mails provided for in the contract
and one more; aud but for a misunderstanding it would havo received
another. The Wednesday and Friday
malls (notwithstanding your correspondent's emphatic assertion) were
sent as usual, and, the contractor assures me, wore promptly delivered.
The mail which, he says, arrived late
on Thursday, I know nothing about—
it did not go from this office; but on
Friday evening the contractor kindly
took out an extra mail, containing
matter received the previous afternoon
from Victoria. Friday evening again,
tho regular mail went out at tho regular timo. On Saturday, no mail went
out, first, because no mail was due,
secondly, because there was nothing
to send, ns the delayed ninil from Victoria did not reach this office for some
hours after thu contractor's stage had
gone out to Port Moody, I arranged
for the dispatch of this delayed mail,
as an extra, on Monday morning; but
unfortunately, whon tha contractor
culled for it, early in the morning, he
mot tho caretaker, who, knowing liim
to be now to the work, supposed ho
had mado a mistake about thu time of
dispatching the mail, and sunt him
off with tho statement that tho Port
Moody mail did uot go out until thu
evening. Vour correspondent's concluding statement about my "outrageous" treatment of Port Moody is
simply incomprehensible to me, 1
have racked my memory in vain for
any circumstance which ho could torture into even a shadow of foundation
for auch a chnrge.   Yours, Ac,
John 0. Brown, P. M.
Post Offlco, New West'r, Sept. 10:'85.
Port Moody, Sept. 10.—This deleo*
table town has, these times, all the
appearance of being in the enjoyment
of a chronic Sunday. All the men
white and yellow—who woro engaged
on the railway works, except a few
gangs of section men necessary to the
working of the road, havo of courso
lieen discharged, aud have scattered to
thu four winds—it being assumed, by
a llction, not of law but of engineering, that Mr. Onderdonk's contract is
completed.    Then  tho  Slmilkameen
?;old excitement has, within tho lost
ortnight, caused another and a gradu-1
ally increasing exodus; for nearly
everybody who could raise the wind
and wbo was not tied at home, has
made tracks for the "diggings."—The
last of tho rail ships, tho Gerard C.
Tobey, will have finished discharging
cargo by the close of tho woek. She—
or he—together with tho James Drummond, tho only other ahip remaining
in harbor, will then soon take tboir
departure, when Port Moody will look
more Sunday-like thau over. This is
thu lost we shall see of rail ships for
many a day. It is understood that
ull the rails on hand will full short,
by some eight or ten milea, of boing
sufficient to lay Onderdonk's syndicate
contract, which terminates at Griffin
Lako, Eagle Pass, nnd which is about
all graded. Consequently tho rails
for that portion of Mr. Onderdonk's
last contract will have to be brought
from Winnipeg and the east.—It seems
there are still enough peoplo left in
the place to acquit themselves of
means for social enjoy in ent. Weather
permitting, what is left of tho population of Port Moody expect to assist
to-morrow (Friday) at a water-party
and pic-nic up the North Arm. This
is at the kind invitation of the American sea captains in port. Much enjoyment is anticipated—weathor always permitting,—On tho morning of
Monday lost we nil found ourselves in
the condition of a blind man suddenly
restored to Bight. The heavy rain of
the previous twenty-four liours had
brought us out of thu mist and darkness into light. There wero suddenly
revealed mice more the mountains,
hills, woods, waters, and other surroundings, once so familiar, but which
we had not seen for a month. How
familiar and friendly-like all looked 1
and how everybody seemed to enjoy
the exhibition!—The steamer Western
Slope, from Viotoria, duo here, according to programme, on Tuesday, arrived
here at 7 o'clock this morning. It is u
pity that tbe proprietor of these
steamers could not be impressed with
the indisputable idea that, if it ib expected of thom ever tu build up a
traffic betwoen Port Moody and Victoria, they must be punctual to sail on
the day and tho hour appointed and
advertised. In that case, such traffic
would grow rapidly; but as things are
nobody places thu slightest reliance
whatever ou these Victoria steamers.
It would seem that thoy only just
come to Port Moody when they have
nothing else to do.

Atopic Rltigre.    '^   •
Editor Columbia!*.— I hope yon will
not deny a new correspondent apace in
your widely circulated paper. Tlie re*
marks about to be made arc of publio
importance and should not be suppressed,
Your regular correspondent at Maple
Ridge (if you have any) has been guilty,
I am afraid, of a neglect of duty. Perhaps he thinks his Interests nre better
served by keeping silent on some points.
This supposition finds credulity in the
minds of the best residents of the settlement, and the wish is often expressed
that some one would manifest courage
enough to speak out through the medium
of the public press on subjects whioh
vitally affect the welfare of the community. In obedience to this wish, and
actuated by a love for humanity, your
correspondent wishes to state the follow-
iu-g.feets* 'With the -hope tliat some means
of redress may be discovered:
It is a notorious fact that within a fow
miles of New Westminster tlio provincial
and municipal license laws, notwithstanding their stringency, ara heeded no
more than the defunct laws of Louis
Kiel. At least two houses publicly vend
intoxicating liquors, and as a matter of
fact neither house is licensed. Your
correspondent is surprised to think that
a community in other respects law-abiding would tolerate in their midst those
open haunts ot iniquity. If those haunts
of vice (as they aro not worthy to be
called anything elso) had even the semblance of law to protect them there
■night be some excuse for allowing them
to exist. It is certainly difficult to conceive what apology can bo put forward
by the municipal authorities tor allowing
their license laws to be dishonored and
utterly disregarded. Ono thing is evident, tbat ts, the whisky ring is feared.
Not many weeks ago, in another part of
Canada, a gentleman suffered personal
violence for putting the legal machinery
in force for the suppression of tho whisky
curse. Tho fear of boing similarly bandied by tho whisky men nnd iheir associates here if any proceedings aro tnken
ngainst them seems to have a direful
effect on many minds, l'ublio opinion
is all but unanimous for the rooting out
of the evil, but the courage to take action is nowhere to be found. We must
surely be drifting to a state of serfdom
worse than tlmt of slaves.  Law is giving
iriaco to anarchy, and the last vestige of
rccdom is likely to be surrendered to
the demon alcohol.
Let me express tho hope that the people will buckle on their armor, if I may
so speak, and stand in defence of their
laws and liberties, and that uo lawbreaker will be tolerated at Maple Ridge.
The Trite Philosophy of Medication
is not to dose for symptoms, but to root
out disease. Northrop k Tyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, the
Great Blond Purifier, has proved itself
equal to this tnsk. It is a most searching without being a violent remedy for
Constipation, Biliousness nnd Indigestion. It is as woll adapted tn the needs
nud physical temperaments of delicate
females as to the more robust sex, nnd is
n fine preventive of* disease as well tut
remedy for it.
Will Riel be Hanged.
THE SENTENCE OF DEATH CONFIRMED.
CniiiAoo, Sept. U.~The Daily News
Winnipeg Bpecial says the full court of
Manitoba, composed of Chief Justice
Wallbride and Justices Taylor and
Killnmn, to-day gavo judgment on
Kiel's case, disallowing the appeal and
confirming tho doath sentence passed
hy the Northwest territorial court.
All held that according to the evidence
the jury could not come to any other
decision than they did, and by dominion statute, confirmed by the imperial
parliament, the Northwest torritorial
court clearly had jurisdiction, and that
while tho prisoner acted strangely at
times, he was a clever, designing man,
who sought to ndvanco his own interests by using the half-breeds as tools.
There is a growing conviction in Winnipeg that Kiel will bo banged on tho
18th.
Chicago, Sept. 10.—Tho Daily
News' special from Winnipeg says over
one thousand of Kiel's sympathizers,
embracing   half-breeds   ana Frenoh
Canadians, for twenty miles around,
held a mass meeting last night at St.
Boniface. Speeches were made by
Kiel's counsel and prominent French
residents. During the addresses there
was intense excitement among thu listeners, a number of whom shouted
they would fight before they would see
Kiel hanged. The speakers declared
the name of J toil, if ho were hanged,
would be handed down in history as
that of a martyr, while the names of
bis accusers would rot iu oblivion.
Tbe unity of tbe French in Canada
was strongly urged in order that such
pressure might be brought to bear at
Ottawa as will securu a reprieve for
Riel. Lemicux, Kid's counsel, described a scene in tho cell. The two
little children and aged mother clung
to the prisoner, and he hy ball and
chain was prevented from moving.
Great indignation followed. Juhn
Carey, a lawyer, said if Riel hanged
tho confederation was at an end.
Canada wanted no more of it. Other
meetings will probably soon bo held.
A. B. Des Koohers, Arthabaskavllle,
P* Q,, writes: "Thirteen years ago I
Was seized with a severe attack of rheumatism in the head-, from which I nearly
constantly suffered, until after having
used Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil for nine
days, bathing the head, ko,, when I wus
completely cured, and have only used
half a bottle."
NEWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORU.
London, Sept. 5.—At a-meeting of
Catholics at Munster, Prussia, Dr. Windhorst, the Prussian Catholic leader, said
the Pope still ruled the world. Tlie
holy chair must be made independent of
the pewers. We now, he said, stand
steadust for the Pope through life or
death, Thc speaker asked for three
cheers for Pope Leo, which were given
with enthusiasm. Several resolutions
were passed demanding tho unconditional
repeal of the Chief May laws, especially
those dealing with religious orders and
die education of thc clergy.
, London, Sept. 6.—Advices from Alia*
liab.id say it is believed that Gen. Roberts will urge the increase of tho Indian
aimy by 10,000 British troops and 17,000
natives.
Caiuo, Sept; 5.— Information has beon
recsived here that hostilities have been
suspended at Kassala. The garrison still
holds its arms and have possession of the
town, which is fed by friendly Halinkas.
Caiuo, Sept, 8.—Osman Digma was
shot) by an Arab while trying to coerce
four Sheiks to attack Kassala.
New York, Sept. 9.—A torpedo boat
tliu: has been building for several mouths
off Fort Hamilton, was launched yesterday, At first tlie boat moved slowly on
the ways, restrained by tho holdback.
Suddenly she gathered headway, and in
a flash the holdback was torn from the
hands in charge of it, and the mass sprang
forward down the incline. A lurch to
thc loft, a crash, a snapping of cables and
splintering of planking and the now candidate for aquatic honors was afloat. As
thc staging broke beneath her weight the
ram careened to the left; and in tliis
position she struck the wnter. She righted at once, however, and Bitot out of the
channel, ber bow slightly elevated and
her stern deeply submerged. Little by
little the turret, at first wholly out of
water, begun to disappear. Four minutes later she proved her qualities ns a
submarine boat by going to thc bottom
like a plummet, iu ten feet of water.
Examination showed that the fall from
the ways liad stove in one of her planks.
The damage is slight, and she floated,
until filled with water, in exactly the
right position. She will Im raised today.
London, Sept, S).—Telegrams from a
gentleman who was recently seut toiler-
many to enquire into the alleged wholesale expulsion of Russian subjects fully
confirm nil previous reports. In a dispatch dated at Konigsburg he says:
Many thousand persons have been ex*
polled from towns in the eastern provinces, aud thousands of Russians havo
been ordered to leave by the lst of October, on the ground that they have uot
obtained formal naturalization, although
many of those expelled performed tier-
man military service at Dantzio. The
chief 'sufferers are merchants, artizans,
workmen, and.even musicians, some of
whom have been settled in the country
twenty years. At least 500 personB in
Dantzii: at present are under notice to
depart. At Konigsburg the same harsh
state of affairs exists, and the suffering
likely to be cauced by the forced removal
of so many people from the comfortable
homes which they have, by their industry, succeeded in making for themselves,
excites tlie keenest sympathy of the natives in these cities, who are indignant at
the prospective loss of so many wealthy
producers. The municipal. council of
Dantzic has Bent a petition to Bismarck,
setting forth in forcible terms tlie injustice and injury which will result from
the enforcement of the order of removal,
and requesting that it be rescinded, The
sufferers themselves have thus far' appealed in vain to the provinoial authorities for amelioration of the decree,
St. Pktesburo, Sept. 9.—The Russo-
Afghan question will be speedily embodied iu a protocol defining the main
points of the frontier. The Afghan
frontier commission will then define tho
boundary line iu detail. Russia has
abandoned lior claim to the whole of the
Zulfiknr pnss proper. Mnmcbnk is also
left to the Afghan frontier. A line will
bo run eastward to Kedjaaelh on tlie
basis of tlie agreement of 1883.
London, Sept. (I.—Capetown advices
state that Congo cannibals have attacked
several stations of the African Association and roasted aad devoured a number
of whites.
Madi'iii, Sept. 9.— Germany's demand
for reparation for the insult to the German embassy here ou Saturday was received to*day. The note is couched in
vory reasonable terms. Spain's note in
reply, whieh was dispatched to-night,
expresses deep regret nt the circumstances of thc incident, and snys that thu
offenders will bo prosecuted nnd that
tlioso responsible for the safety of the
embassy nave been arrested and dismissed from service, aud thnt Spain condemns the notion of the riotous mob.
Meanwhile preparations for the event of
war continue, nnd orders have boen
given to report all troops available for
service. The commander of the Spanish
man-of-war Velnsco, who was expected
to arrive nt Yap on the 28th, was under
ordors to regain possession of that island.
News from Yap is anxiously awaited.
ItBKLlK, Sept 10.-Tho Official Gazelle
says that on August 19th thc government received a note from Spain protesting against Germany's occupation of
the Caroline Islands; that Prince Bismarck's reply was handed to the Spanish minister of foreign affairs on September 4th. In his reply Prince Bismarck
pointed out tliat German traders who had
resided for many years on the Caroline
Islands, believing tho islands to be unclaimed, had demanded the protection
of Germany; such protection, tbo chancellor said, would have neither been solicited nor granted if thoy had thought
Spain claimed the archipelago, Official
inquiries showed that the only interests
represented on the islands wero Gorman
nud British, the former largely prtdoimS
nuting. Iu view of the fact that Spain
had made no objection to Germany's
note of March, 1875, in whieh Germany
was justified In regarding tho islands as
ownorlcss, the annexation had been
effected iu good faith and Germany was
willing in a friendly spirit to examine
iuto thc claims now put forth by Spain
or to submit the mutter to arbitration.
The chancellor, in concluding his reply,
said the question was too trivial a one to
imperil the friendship existing between
Spain and Germany.
Madrid, Sept. 10.--The government
has just dispatched a special messenger
to Berlin with an additional note to Germany in regard to the serious questions
at issue between the two governments.
Tlie note was approved at a council of
ministers held to-day. It requests Germany to renounce all intention of establishing a sovereignty over the Carolines
and Pollew islands. Without such
guarantee Spain must decline to give
satisfaction for recent insults to the Ger-

The Dreaded Tarantula.
The following story is from a Hacra-
monto journal: "A party of Sacramen-
tans returned home last evening from a
trip to the mountains, bringing with
them two deerskins, one wildcat skin
and u few other trophies, including
two tarantulas—dead ones. They had
a little incident attending the transportation of tliese specimens which occasioned considerable alarm. It occurred iu Cache Oreek Canyon, as they
wero returning home. The tarantulas,
for lack of a better receptacle, were
inclosed in a cigar box when caught,
about ten days previous, and this box,
carefully tied np, was deposited beneath the seat of the vehicle.
While they were jolting through the
canyon the seat slipped, and the two
meu occupying it found themselves
dropped suddenly into the bottom of
the wagon. Ono of them struck the
cigar box, crushing it, and immediately
felt that something bad hurt him. A
glance showed him that he was resting ou the tarantulas; and, with a yell
of 'Tm stung! I'm stung!" ho
jumped from tlm wagon, and dashing
his hands behind him, as though desirous of lifting himself out of his
boots, ho bounced wildly along tho
rond, then turning made for the wagon
shouting to bis amazed and alarmed
companions: "Whisky! quick! I'm
dying! Why don't you hurry?" Tho
other three mon—there were four in
the pnrty—reached simultaneously for
the demijohn, broke off the cork in
tlieir haste to pull it out, and in their
efforts to knock off the neck of tho
demijohn to save time, broke the en-
tiro concern, und nearly all the contents were lost. About a pint of tho
liquid wns saved, however, and without saying so much us "Hero's luck,"
the party that waa bitten swallowed it.
Soon hu began to fool better, and
eventually felt so remarkably well thut
it was evident that tlio poison had been
furi'i-d to succumb. Theu the work of
slmiglitouing up tho contents of the
wagon commoucod, and the tarantula
box was carefully lifted out and examined, when behold! the ''bugs"
were found perfectly lifeless, and so
dry nnd stiff lhat it wns evident that
they hnd been dead moro than twenty-
four hours, whilo u couple of tacks in
the broken cover of the hox convoyed
n very good hint as to the nature of
thu injury which thu bold hunter hnd
suffered."

High Class Organs.
Prom the Toronto Globe.
Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is tho pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Ilowmanville. It is moreover pne of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
bad been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, Inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may he
Been listening to test performances oa
first-class instruments mado by leading
city and country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It bad Its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, tho atock being
at that time largely held by parties unae
quainted with the business. About ten
years go Joha Wesley, tbe present secre
tory aud treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing depart*
mont; and W. S. Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business haa
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by tbe admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment waB increased, until it now occupies a leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
Eianos por month. These are produced
y 250 hands, who receive in wages
about $15,000 per mouth. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, end
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zeulauil; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
Thc instruments ou exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there aro two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the aide
wall of u room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. Tbe
square grand is finished on all sides, ore-
touts a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. Theso
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
.superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for liours. The touch is
quick and easy, tho tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance thoy are equal to tlie best
American pianos.
The orgaus made by th^Coinpany are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, aud at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the paviliou.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, in at
presont at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here nt tbe
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been plnced in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. Tlio organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite. The casos show wonderful variety. Mnny of these nre of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
Thc case which secured for tbo Company
a pri/e at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design and artis
tic in execution. Tho musicians who
tested the organs aftirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; whilo visitors
can themselves judge as to thc beauty
and style of thc cases.

Nobthfield, Aug. 9.—In the religion history ol the last half of our
nineteenth century the name of Dwight
L...Moody will have a unique place.
Up here among these green hills, which
stand as sentinels guarding the winding course of the placid Connecticut,
in the little village of Northfield, Mr.
Moody's great personality has stamped
itielf upon everything connected with
the life of the community.
The great evangelist lovos his native villago and all its people, and to
an unusual extent ho has thoir lovo
and reverence. One middle-aged
citizen from the Emerald Isle loves to
tell how he and Moody "hoed potatoes together," years ago. "And if
ye'll ask him he'll tell ye so," he adds
with evident complacency. He takes
much satisfaction in having been so
honored. Very different from the
spirit of that townsman of Vice-President Hannibal Hamlin, about whom
the story is told that when Mr. Hamlin was nominated on tlio ticket with
Lincoln, on bearing of the fact thin
man exclaimed: "Han. Hamlin vice-
president of the United States! Pooh!
Why he and I used to go in swimming
together!"
,On the principal atreet, not far from
tbe station of the Now London Northern Railroad, is the house of Ira D.
Sankey, whose naino is so inseparably
connected with that of Muody. Mr.
Sankey has recently bought here, and
here he will maki- bis home in the
future. A littlo further on you'll
maybe meet a burly man on a bicycle.
You are struok with the brawny arms,
aun-burried face, heavy black iiiub-
tache—coal. black. There ia something nbout the man which, under
circumstances, BuggeBts "Tbe Village
Blacksmith" of Longfellow. "A
heavy man for a wheel," you remark.
"That man," says your driver, "don't
you know that man? That's Pentecost" And so it proved. Kov. Geo.
"F. Pentecost of Brooklyn, N. V., is
out for his nfternoon spin, a favorite
pastime and exercise with him. You
pass his summer cottage a littlo further
on, a modernized farm-house with
broad and breezy verandas. As you
drive along, somo half-mile farther,
you reach the.northern extremity of
the village. In the held beyond you
see standing near some workmen a
broad-shouldered, short-necked, corpulent man of Borne 250 pounds, with
full heard, straw hat aud working-day
clothes, evidently superintending some
work which ia going on. "That's
Moody himself," says the driver, "and
that's his house," pointing to a spacious, and inviting edifice near by, tho
last on the right of the village street.
At the sound of your carriage wheels
"the man turns and greets you by raising his hat and giving ouo of his characteristic, nervous, businosa-liko nods.
Yes, it is Muody. There is no mistaking the great preacher. If you
had never seen him you might take
him for a farmer. But it is Moody
the evangelist, spending his summer
here at his homo, getting ready to entertain hundreds of hia friends and
admirers, in the convocation of Christian workers. Ynu havo aecn this
man when he has been swaying with
his homely, rugged eloquence im*
menae audiences of people. You have
followed him in his unprecedented
career in two, continents, addressing
and moving with his wonderful power
large audiences in more cities and
towns than any other American, living
or dead. You havo read his published
utterances and acknowledged his real
greatness. You now look upon him
in i new character. Here you see
him at home. Here he was born.
Here he passed through those early
struggles, -ffith poverty. And here ho
has returned, crowned with honors and
dearly loved by hundreds of thousands,
to make his home and spend the resting hours of a busy life. About twelve
years ano he bought the house and
farm which he has made into a home
for his family. Mr. Moody haB
changed somewhat in the last ten
years. He is grayer and much stouter,
bot just as alert and vigorous. The
yean sit lightly on him. His executive ability is very groat. Perhaps it
shines more conspicuously than anywhere else in the groat educational
work in which he has engaged. The
world thinks of Mr. Moody as the unparalleled evangelist. In after years
Mr. Moody will be remembered also
as "Moody, the educator." This will
appear the more strange to many who
remember him as the preacher of all
preachers who could successfully defy
science .literature, systematic theology,
and the rules of grammar. Yet Mr.
Moody does not undervalue education.
On the contrary, the very fate which
doomed him to an ignorance of books
in his early years makes him more diligent in study in his later years. Il»
is called the man of one book, the
Bible, and this is, in a sense, true.
Yet he does not despise othor books.
In his comfortable home hore among
his native hills, Mr. Moody has collected a library of considerable extent;
and what is more, busy as he is, be
reads his books, This samo respect
for knowledge, and the memory of his
early struggles and privations havo
led Mr. Moody into what perhaps will
hereafter he considered the crowning
work of hia life. Some years ago,
tiding through the country in tlie
vicinity of this early home, Mr.
Moody saw two young girls sitting in
the door of their humble cottage
braiding baskets. Tbe sight of their
almost hopeless poverty, aud tho memory that such povorty ia often coupled
with a lofty ambition to do and be
something, aet Mr. Moody thinking.
Tbe result was that he took a fow girls
of this class into his own family to be
supported and trained. The movement grew. He built a wing on his
houso for the girls. It overflowed,
and soon Mr. Moody found himself
launched upon the sea of a great educational enterprise. This was the
origin of the Northfield Seminary.
ft is said of Mr. Lincoln that one
of his great qualities was his powor to
get the great men of the nation around
him to assist in his work. Mr. Moody
has this power in a remarkable degree.
When he mot Mr. Sankey for the fint
time, this quality appears. After
hearing him sing ho sought an introduction to him. His first word was,
"Where do you live?" That waa
quickly followed by, "What is your
business/" "Are you married?" etc;
and then tho sentence, "I want you."
Upon Mr. Sankoy's remonstrating,
Mr. Moody said, "But you must. I've
been looking for you for the lust eight
years. Now I've found you, you must
go, you know." And Mr. Sankey
went; and it was the best thing he
over did. When Mr. Moody was huld*
ing hii meetings in Boston in thu winter of 1876-77, a young merchant waa
converted. It Boon came to Mr.
Moody's ears that thii young mini
immediately upon hii conversion had
refunded 130,000 nf "conioiouco mon
ey.'' Mr. Moody said at once, "I
want that man," and he has him today. He is H. N. N. Marshall,
treasurer of the Northfield Seminary,
and the man upon whom Mr. Moody
leaua more heavily than upon any
othor man. He is the executive officer
who attends to the finances, builds
the splendid buildingB which aro
Bpringing up here as from tho ground,
and attends to tho practical details of
things. On the list of trustees appear
other names also, of men distinguished
alike as business mon and philanthropists. Among these are Ool. Julius
ii. Estey of the groat organ firm of
Brattleboro, Vt.; Franklin Fairbanks
of the wealthy firm of Fairbanks
Bros.; D. W. MoWilliams of Brooklyn, N. Y,, whose gift to the seminary
is tho splendid Marquand Hall, and
many others.—-?'. Louis Globe-Democrat.
A Grand Old church.
The Church of Notro Dame, Montreal, Canada, is ono of tho finest edifices in the world, and has a history
dating back to the middle of tho seventeenth century. It was begun in 1042
by DeMaiaonncuve, a pious layman
who had been sent ovor from'Paris at
the head of fifty colonists, by tho Sul-
picians, to lay the foundation of both
the church and colony. Tho Sulpi-
cians themsolves Boon afterwards followed. They received a grant of the
whole island of Montreal from tho
French king, and established a Catholic colony, but they did not cloao tho
doors against othur cqmers but Catholics, although the chief mission of early
French colonists was the propagation
and maintenance of the Catholic faith.
The church has developed from this
start, and now stands without a peer
in British America, nnd with a very
few outside of that domain. With it
and its order of priesthood are associated some of tho brightest incidents of
American history, as well as Canadian.
It waB with this ordor that La Salle,
tho father of American western colonization, made hia home while perfecting plans of western exploration, and
these Sulpicians tirst aided him and
encouraged him in his first enterprise.
The church and residence stand upon
the very spot where La Salle knew
them, and the present church edifice
is the fifth since tho humble bark
structure of 1042 was built. It was
commenced in 1823, and completed
and dedicated six years later. The
outside ia of plain Gothic architecture,
and is built of the native gray atone of
which Montreal is chiefly constructed.
The interior is magnificent. The
paintings, gildings, statues, Boulpturo3
and ornamentations are varied and exceedingly costly. The grand altar
alono cnBt upward of §100,000. It
contains six magnificent groups of
statuoB, acnlptures, nnd several angelic
choirs and bas reliefs. The design of
this altar represents the sacrifice of
our Lord on thy cross. Besides this
there are 12 sido altars, which aro alao
richly decorated, and it contains many
magnificent sculptures and statues.
The regular Beating capacity of the
church is twelve thousand, and it frequently accommodates fifteen thousand people, by utilizing the aisles and
side recesses. The cost of the entire
structure if built to-day would be about
$1,000,000. Attached to the church
iB probably tho largest convent in the
world. It contains 850 regularly ordained nuns and 150 novices, and had
ou its annual school roll 25,000 pupila,
two-thirds of whom nre educated free.
—CViMugo Paper,
Are Women Fools?
First—Isabella of Spain comprehended and sympathized with the plans
of Columbus, and aided him to accomplish his discoveries; thoreforu, "Wo-
men are fools. Thoy cannot grasp
great theories."
Second—Caroline Herschel performed prodigies of calculation to help her
brother, and also made independent
discoveries; hence: "Women are fools.
They cannot have truly scientific bins."
Third—Lucretia Mott preached the
gospel of "liberty of the individual"—
bodily, mental, spiritual—to tho last
hour of her grandly courageous life;
ergo: "Women are fools. They aro
bound by priestcraft and superstition."
Fourth—Fanny Mendelssohn composed many of the works attributed to
her brother Felix; so: "Women aro
fools. They cannot grasp musical
principles." [N.B.— I think Fanny
was a fool in thia case not to take all
the credit that belonged toher.]
Fifth—Mrs. Stowe did more by her
pen than auy ten men by their speeches
to abolish African slavery in this country, whicli proves that "Women nre
fools. They are not capable of judgment mi great questions,"
Sixth—Charlotte Uronto wrote an
immortal novel while toiling in the
gloomy kitchen at Hn worth; hence:
"Women are fools. They can only
think of one thing at n time,"
Seventh—Mrs. Roebliug, during hor
husband's illness, carried on the stupendous calculi-tii .ns without which
tho Brooklyn bridge could not have
been built. Evidently "Women aro
fools. Thoy have uo bead for the
higher mathematics.''   Q. E. D.
Eighth—Anna E. Carroll planned a
vast campaign during the American
Civil War, whieh threw victories into
the hands of the Northern generals
and virtually saved the Union; hence:
"Women are fook They have no
military genius."
Ninth- Mary A. Livermoro, in the
aame way, did priceless work at tbe
head of the Sanitary Commission, thus
showing that "Women are fools. They
have no executive talent."
Tenth—Mrs. Frank Leslie paid ufl'n
$50,000 debt in less thnn six months
after assuming control of the great
publishing business luft by her husband; whicli makes it plain that "Women are fools. They havo no financial
ability."
Ohristophor Talbot is the only member of tho House of Commons who sat
in it prior to the Reform bill of 1832.
Fifty-five yean ago ho was returned,
at the age of 20, for Glamorganshire,
and the connection thus formed has
been continued uninterruptedly up to
tho present day. The only member
who can be said to rival Mr. Talbot is
Mr. Gladstone, who was born in 1800,
and has been a member of the House
of Commons since 1832, with an interval of two yoars from 1845 to 1847.
