New Bailway Projects/1
It has been reported that the Esquimalt and Nanaimo Bailway
company intends to soon apply for a
charter from the legislature of
British Columbia for the purpose of
building a line to the Straits of
Fuca, opposite Port Angeles, W. T.
This company abeady has a short
line in operation from Nanaimo to
Esquimalt on Vancouver Island.
From Esquimalt to the Straits of
Fuca is but a short distance, but by
means of a train transfer boat it is
the intention to connect with a line
to be built from Fort Angeles to
Portland, Or., whieh is to run
through Olympia along the coast.
This scheme will bring Victoria in
direct communication with the
American roads. There is also a
plan on foot that will place Vancouver in close connection with
Portland. The Bellingham Bay and
West Shore Bailway company is at
work building from Seattle northward, with the intention of running
a line through Whatcom and thence
to a connection with the Canadian Pacific road at Vancouver.
When this is done connection can
easily be made between Seattle and
Tacoma, and at the latter place the
Northern Pacific already has a line
running south to Portland. With
these two pieces of work completed
a grand trunk system will be in existence, reaching from Vancouver
to Portland, this city, Los Angeles
and San Diego.—S..F. Examiner.
The announcement that T. F,
Sinclair & Co., of Port Haney, had
received the contract to build the
extension of the Seattle railway to
the boundary line, a distance of
eighty miles, simply proves that the
C. P. B. are determined to have
another field for freight distribution.
It will be remembered that Van
Home, wheninterviewedby the board
of trado in this city, was asked his
opinion on the disallowance of the
Manitobia road, and also in regard
to the toad running from Westminster to the boundary line. Beferr-
ing to the latter he stated that he
thought it would be in the interests
of Victorians as well as the railway
to oppose such a scheme, and Van
Home's suggestion was received
with favor. However, far from the
0. P. B desiring to oppose tho
building of such a road it is stated
on pretty good authority that thoy
are the main movers in the matter
and that Sinclair <fc Oa really represent Andrew Onderdonk and
the 0. P. B company, and that the
line being built from Seattle to the
boundary is simply for the purpose
of connecting with an extension of
the 0. P. II., and thus furnish the
latter with an entry by rail into
Washington Territory, Oregon and
California, Tho contention is quite
reasonable, for the road will be constructed by the issuance of bonds to
tho contrators, and although Mr.
Sinclair has amassed be hard work
and good management a considerable
fortune, and "A O." is blessed with
plenty of this world's goods, yet it
is quite certain that they could not
attempt the buildiag of so costly a
work without substantial backing,
and the latter is represented by the
0. P. B syndicate. So far as the
0. P. B. is concerned tho move is
undoubedtly agoodonc,and will open
up to them unrestricted communica-
cation with the growing Sound
country, and by the various railways with all portions of Washington Territory, Oregon and California. It will be as great if not a
greater blow to the Northern Pacific than the hitter's entry into
Winnipeg by the famous Bed
Biver road, for it will strike nt the
terminal point of the Northern
Pacific system. However, the lut
ter road is not in tho habit of remaining passive whon its interests
are being jeopardised, and it will in
all likelihood hasten the building of
an extension of that rond to some
point on the Strnits of Fuca, probably Port Angelos, thus giving it a
terminal harbor of capacity and excellence, and nearer to tho ocean
than any of its rivals. With the
building of the Island railway extension to a point opposite that of
the Northern Pacific station, and
the operation of a transfer boat
across the straits, the Northern
Pacific would also have another desirable acquisition in being enabled
to run its trains into Victoria.
Whatever way matters may turn
we cannot fail to bo benefited directly and indirectly when tho  presont
unrest in railway circles has finally
settled and some of the mnny
schemes completed. Our position is
assured.—Colonist.

A FLASH IN IHE PAN.
London, Bee, 8.—Russia's.action in
massing troops along-'tba'^rontier is
considered, as regards the agitation
caused thereby, as only a flash in a
pan. No serious consequences are
expected to arise from it. The Military council held by the Emperor
Francis Joseph nt Vienna was uneventful, with the exception of its resulting in Bonding a warning to St,
Petersburg.
Advices from St. Petersburg state
that well-informed circles in that city
say Russia's movement on Austria's
frontier are made merely for the pur-
poseof despatching adivision of cavalry.
That no aggressive idea is entertained
but that the present gathering of
troops is ouly for the protection of
certain-localities. It is stated that
the predictions of an approaching conflict with Austria are unjustifiable.
A telrgram from Vienna says that
the Austrian War office is taking measures, to permanently increase the facilities for mobilizing troops, and to
place Gnlicia in a hotter position for
defence in the event of a war with
Russia. Preparations are actively
being mado to enable a large force to
be thrown into Gnlicia at the shortest
notice. It is not intended, however,
to station any extra forces in Qalicia
at present. The Military council over
whioh the Emperor presided, decided
not to summon delegations for the present, as Russia has apparently ceased
her menacing movements. Measures
have been arranged which will be
adopted if Russia should continue to
collect her troops on the frontier.
THE IIOVAL   THROAT.
Bekmn, Deo. 8.—The Crown Prince
Frederick William at San Remo still
continues to improve in health, and
tho German physicians, or at least
some of them, are now trying to persuade people that the Prince's affection
is not the sorious one that has been
stated. The best authorities, nover-
the less, see no reason to reject the
cancer theory.
WONT HAVE HIS   WIFE KISSED.
Boston, Dec. 8.—A special from
Neward N. J., states that much comment is occasioned there by tho rumors respoctiong tho relationship
between Mrs. James Brown Potter,
now pitying at the Miners' Theatre
in "Mile, do Bressior," and her husband, caused by the lattcr's jealousy.
It grew out of her marked aversion,
since her arrival in America, leadiug
to unconcealed dissatisfaction of Kryle
Bellow, her leading man, who has
lately protested vigorously against her
squeaniishness, thus spoiling the most
dramatic pans of the play. This, it is
said, led Mrs. Potter to disagreo with
her husband, and lost night she acknowledged, in answer to publio criticism on the matter, that upon her return from Europe Mr. Potter annoyed
her so thnt she had to promise him
nevor to allow herself to be kissed on
the stage. This concession led to other
exactions which becaino so ridiculous
that sho hnd to make a dotcrmined
stand. Mr. Potter's relationship iB
consequently given out as very strain-
od with his pretty wifo, and he may
loso a prise, because it spoils u play to
leavo out tho kissing.
A NICE LITTLE nOMANCE.
Clyde, N. Y., Dec. 8. — John G.
Manire, n wealthy middle-aged banker of Oakland, Cal., wns married yesterday to Miss Mary Wost at the
bride s home. Miss West was riding
on tho cars on tho way homo from Albany last June, and at Syracuse found
Bhe had lost her purse. Tho conductor
refused to believe her Btory and was
about to put her off when Maniro paid
her faro. After ho reached Oakland
bo received n lcttor from Miss West
enclosing tho amount of tho fare.
Corrospondonce followed, ami in threo
months ho proposed nud was accoped.
The cou|ile will visit in Now York
and thon go direct to Oakland.
According lo Sir Chas. Dilko, who
is a good authority, RtiBain can put
4,000,000 trained men into tho field
within ;»0 days while the combinod
nrrnies of Germany nnd Austria would
show not quite 3,000,000. If Italy
eoutd muster 800,000 she would do
woll, so it appears tlmt the Csnr has
nothing to four from Germany after
all, nml is not to bo frightened by the
Gorman Chnncellor.   -

Berlin, Deo. 8.—A dispatch to the

in which thero wns sorious bloodshed.

II0II1.ET FAIIS TO FOItJI A MINISTRY.
Paris, Deo. 8.—M. Goblet has
struck a snag in his attempt to form a
cabinet and leaves the task to othen.
His defeat came about by the refusal
of M. Ribot to remain in the cabinet
in which two portfolios were given to
members of the extreme left, M. M.
SilUmund Lacroix and Menard Donsn
held a prolonged conference to-night
with President Carnot and M. M.
Goblet and Ribot. The foot that Uw

identofthe union of the left ku
joined the discontented Ribot in refusing his services in the cabinet. M.
Goblet regards the matter as a refusal
of the union of the left to oo-operst.
with him, aud will probably resign his
task. This Sill lead to the recall of
M. Roitfter to head a modified nin-
istry.

AN APPEAL FOB JUSTICE. .
Montreal, Dee. 9.—A most important movement is on foot in connection with the Protestant education
in this province. Sir W. Dawson will
make a final appeal at the next saaaion
of the local legislature for justioe for
the minority through Dr. Cameron,
member for Huntingdon, and should
the minority's demand be refused tht;
matter will be carried before the Do-'
minion government Failing aatiafac-
from them on appeal will be taken to
the foot of the throne. Then toa
good deal of feeling on the question
and it is expected to give rise toa bitter controversy when it comes before
the legislature.
It is reported that the large convent
at Terrebonne is totally destroyed by
fire. The converterwhhnai splendid
building, and tbe loss will be heavy.
Mr. Van Home has returned from
the west. Things, he said, wen looking up in the northwest; the Bad
river croze had spent itself and he believed the counter was settling down
to an era of steady progress and prosperity. The business of the road
showed a great increase, so muoh in
fact that more rolling stock would be
at once required. The line is now in
first-class order throughout

nlSMARCX PLAYS A GAME OF BLUFF.
Lonon, Dee. 9.—Numerous theories have been adduced and explanations have been offered in regard to
tbe alleged forged letten that found
their way   to the  ctar,   suppoasd
from the hand of Bismarck.   A mat
many people have been accused of
writing them and nearly every day
some one discovers that the ' poor
Orleanists are the guilty parties and
lay  tho sin at their doors.    The

Petersburg, has been selected as one

Tho rapid changes which aro tnk-
ing place in this province will certainly make it necessary to have
the constituencies rearranged in the
near future. The only equitable
principle of representation is representation by population. If this
principle were adopted and fairly
carried out, it would be found necessary to give Westminster district
at least two additional representatives. Vancouver has now a population considerably larger than Nanaimo, and about equal to that of
this city; but while Nanaimo aud
Westminister have each a representative in the legislature, Vancouver
has none. The district of Westminster outside of the cities has increased so rapidly in population that,
if population is to be tbe basis of
representation, it will be entitled to
four members, instead of three.
There are other places where a readjustment of the representation
will doubtless be found necessary,
although nowhere else has the increase of population been so marked.
In view of existing inequalities, the
government will have to consider
this matter very soon, for those who
feel that they are deprived of their
rights will not remain content. It
may be worth while, in view of impending changes, to consider whether the representation might not be
readjusted without an increase in
the number of members. The house
is large enough already, and every
additional member adds to the expense of government. In a province
whose white population does not exceed fifty thousand, twenty-five
members are quite sufficient. It
might be in the public interest,
therefore to reduce the representation of such constituencies ns have
more than they proportionately deserve, and allow the others to remain
as they are. One member for every
4000 would probably be a fair average, This would give Westminster
district three members, with one
each for the cities of Westminster
and Vancouver; and it would give
Victoria two. There are several
constituencies on both the island
and mainland which, under this
regulation, would be reduced to one
member. It might not be fair or
politic to wipe out any constituency
now in existence, although the population might be found to come
short of 4000; but no constituency
should be entitled to a plurality of
members except on the 4000-per-
metnber basis. It is not too soon
to discuss this question. The interests involved are considerable,
and free discussion may result in a
scheme which shall meet the circumstances without doing injustice
to any portion of the province. If
discussion comes, it is earnestly
hoped that all party considerations
will be laid aside. Let us address
ourselves to tht consideration of
public questions with a spirit of independence, and for the sole purpose of promoting the public good.
Our ootemporary of the San
Francisco Bulletin is usually well
informed and fair in argument. In
a late issue he discusses the subject
of annexation and commercial union, and says some things which
display a considerable lack of both
information and fairness. He states
the population of Canada to be
about 4,000,000, whereas it must
beat least 5,000,000. He maintains that the fishery treaty is vigorously enforced by Oanada for the
purpose of compelling the United
States government to concede reciprocity, and refers to some of the
provisions of the treaty as regulations calculated to recall barbarous
times. Our cotemporary either does
not know the circumstances or does
not state them fairly. The conditions of the Atlantic fisheries are
suoh that if American fishing ves
sels were to enjoy the privileges of
landing, buying bait, and procuring
supplies, they would be placed on
an equal footing with Canadian
fishermen with respect to taking
fish, while Canadian fishermen are
virtually excluded from U. 8. markets in consequence of the high tariff, The result would be to hand
our coast fisheries over to the American fishermen. Our cotemporary
forgets to state that the treaty of
1818 was signed voluntarily by the
United States, and that treaty defines in the most explicit way what
privileges are conceded or denied to
American fishermen. If it is deemed to be of advantage to them now
to have the treaty modified so as to
give them the same rights as are
enjoyed by Oanndian fishermen,
they must be prepared to give
something in return, such as the
admission of Oanndian fish free of
duty. This they absolutely refuse,
and the Bulletin asserts that even
partial reciprocity with Oanada
could not be eonoeded without "causing a political upheaval" which no
American government would care
to face, fiat, Oanada may not be
able to concede any modification of
tin treaty of 1818 without danger
ot k political upheaval, and in tlmt
caw it leems as if American fishermen will have to put up with things
kt thfflt'&P'' ^j*!*' recifirocity,
our optoinporary thioks, would be
ruinous to a number of the states,
and complete reciprocity, or commerce Wity-vi** wholly impossible.
Under  commercial union, onr co-
temporary seems to think, British
goods would have to be admitted into Canada at a nominal duty of sny
10 per cent, end it would require a
whole army of customs oificcrs along
tho boundary to keep these goods
out of the United States. This is
an entire misapprehension. Under
the present traffic, goods from Englsnd pay the same duty on entering
Oanada as American goods; and under commercial union the same
principle would remain. One of
the immediate results would be the
removal of every custom house all
along the American nnd Canadian
boundary from Montreal to the
Pacific Ocean. Customs ollices
would then be noccssary only at suoh
places as received foreign trade.

streets of the city are running over at all
times of tlie year with people from the
country, people from the West, from tbe
South. The men are down town on
'business' all day; the women make
their little excursions alone, or sometimes
make them not at all. Fanny lias observed their habits, their wants and their
ways. She, has marked them for her
own, They fall an easy prey. She
calls in the morning. She sends a card
to the new-comers. She ia at their service for the da)'. Aro they planning the
buying of the season's hats and gowns ?
She has studied the counters and can
take them straight where the most
fastidious shopper would go. Aro they;
artistic? She knows what galleries aro
open and has the run of a studio or two.
Are they bookish ? She can take them in
quest ol any volume at any price. If
they are adventurous she will climb with
them into the gallery of the Stock Exchange, or conduct them through the
tenement district, or give them a sight
of the relics of Shanty town. She knows
(he city's ins and outs, its turnings and
twisting-*, and she will make her knowledge yours—for a moderate fee. Sho

face, you are apt to like her company.
Her liands are full of business, ana she
wonders that sho taught school so long
before she struck her bright idea."
Tho banana ranks among tho moat
nutritious fruits, a pound containing
mora nutriment than three pounds ol
meat or many pounds of potatoes, whilo
ws food it is, in every sense of tha word,
far superior to tho best wheaten bread.
Although it growsspontamrously throughout the tropics, when, cultivated ita yield
is prodigious, for'an acre of ground
planted with bananas will return, according to Humboldt, as much food material
us thirty-three acres of wheat or over
one hundred acres of potatoes. Tha bar
nana, then, is tho bread of millions who
could not well subsist without it. In
lirnzil it is the principal food Ot the la-
luring classes, while it is no lesa prised
in the island of Cuba. Indeed, in the
latter country, the sugar-planters grow
orchards of it expressly for tho consumption ol their slaves. Every day
each hand receives his ration of salt flsfi
or dried beef, as the case may be,' four
bananas and two plantains. The banana
-it should bo called plantain, for until
lately there was no such word as banana—is divided Into several varieties,
ull of whioh aro used for food. The
l'latino mantanila fi a small, delicate
fruit, neither longer nor stouter than a
lady's forefinger. It is the most delicious
nud prised of all the varieties o! tho
plantain. FA filantino yuiheo, called by
ua the banana, is probably more in demand than any kind. It ia subdivided
inlo different varieties, th* principal ol
which are the yellow and purple Dana-
iiiih wo see for aale in out markets: but
tho hitler are so little esteemed by
the natives of the tropica that they are
H'lilnm eaten by them. Elptaiino yrandt
—known to us simply as the plantain-
is also jubdiiidod [Into, mrieuea, which
are known bK theipaMand Use. The
kind that reach*..iur market is almost
t-ii inches long, yet on the Isthmus of
Dnrien there are plantains that grow
from eighteen to Vrenty-two inches.

"I saw an item the other day about
clam juice being a tip-top 'bracer,' " said
a reporter to a bartender, ".Suppose
you can't get clam juice, what then t"
"Well, foneo had a customer who used
to drink a big goblot of hot water with
the juice of n lemon squeezed into it. lie
said it stirred up his liver, and you
couldn't convince him that there was
anything to beat it as a 'bracer' either.
According to my experience the habit of
drinking; hut water a short time before
meals, isn't indulged iu us much as it
used, to be. Not long ago I was in New
York nnd I dropped in Hudnut's. There
was a man at the counter drinking n cup
of very hot wator into which tho rlerk
had just poured a halt' teaspounful of
tincture of gentian. 'That drink gives
me an appetite; that's why I take it,'
said the man. So you see every rounder

An Old Story Revised and Amended.
A good story to tell the children on
the value of politeness is going lire
rounds about the monkey "when al out
to be assaulted by a dog, lifted his hal
politely, as he had been taught to du,
whilo the abashed dog slunk away with
his tail between his legs.
This is a good little story, and it has a
good little moral, but it isn't the way we
used to hear it in the days when we
played hookey and our beuriug torvur.l
yo ancient pedagogue was not exactly
Cheserlieldion. As the original version
had it, the monkey jumped nimbly on
the dog's back and hod him whipped
before the pup knew what had hold of
him.
But this was in tho good old days
when if a boy didn't look out sharp
for number one, de didn't cut much of a
figure in the community,
St. Peter Found Him Out.
St. Peter—I am ready to assume charge

"Thank you. But see here; what did
you send those five bad men up to the
highest seats for?"    •
"They aro millionaires."
"Humph I Who ore thoso peoplo
crouching back against the wall?"
"Oh, they're nobody; just ordinary
folks. 1 told them I guessed they would
not be put out if they kept quiet."
"Well, welll Why yon have refused
to allow quite a number of good lo runic
in-nt all, I aee. They are poorlv niti-oil,
lo be sure; but their records aro stainless.
What were you on earth, anyhow ?"
"I was church usher."
He Fall Down Stairs.
A handsomely dressed man, much tho
worse for wine, in endeavoring to walk
down a fli;rht of marble stairs leadinj to
the olllce of ono of our big hotels, fell to
the f.mt and battered his new silk hat,
lore his clothes and cut and drsligu al
his faco in a frightful manner iu his

tendered him by a dozen sympathetic
peoplo he was much disgusted nnd
wared them .away. He would not
acknowledge by the acceptance of a <
helping hand that he was iu a condition
calling for aid, but kept his dignity mid
independence intact by exclaiming: "Uu

A Sluggish Liver
Causes the Stomach nnd Bowels to bo-
come disordered, and tho wholo system
to Buffer from debility. In all such
cases Ayer's Fills givo prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I havo finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Tills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their aotion, and their occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition.—Kalph Weemun, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy aotion by taking Ayer's Fills.
Since that time I have never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and Increase the appetite, more surety than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer's
Fills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen montka. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Pills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohlo.a
Ayer's Fills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and Invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting Dom

Freight Bet urn*.
The freight receipts uud aliipiiieiits
for the woi-kendingUei*.7thfall donriil-
erablybolovvthoseof the previous week.
The principle cause for this falling oil*
is the various interruptions which iho
freight traffic has boon subject to at
several points along the lino during t,he
past two weeks. Amount of freight
forwarded 275,300 lba.; charges on
same, $1,226.52 Amount of freight
received, 670,010 lbs.; charges on
same, $5,480.12. Total numbor of

on same, $6,706.64.
The Frozen Salmon Output.
The amount of salmon packed by
the freezing companies on the Fraser
river thia year reaches a total of 3(10,-
000lbs. Nearly oneholfof this has been
marketed and the greater part of what
remains in stock will be shipped east
by the middle of next month. The
demand for frozen salmon in eastern
cities is constantly growing nud when
the Lenten season begins it ia thought
the demand will more than double.
The freezing companies have mot with
so much success this season that they
will double the pack next year.
The Trains.
The train to Vancouver went out on
time this morning und got through

further east than Nicomen it seems
strange that the Atlantic express went

simply because they are not provided

be hoped they will change their minds
aod by their presence add to the success of the occasion.

Fair Trade.
London, Dec S.—A meeting was held
iu St. James' Hall to-day for tho purpose
of advocating fair trade. Mr. Howard
Vincent asserted that a majority of the
Tories favored the adoption of fair trado,
aud conceded the necessity of finding
employment for the increasing population. The speaker said that other nations enjoyed the advantages of fair
trade, while England was at a disadvantage in this respect. Resolutions were
adopted favoring moderate import duties
and the revisiug of tho free trade laws.
President's Cleveland's message has made
politicians rather more thoughtful than
usual concerning the condition of England's tariff laws. A feeling is undoubtedly growing in England in favor of a
moderate duty ou imports, and popular
sentiment points in tlmt direction. At
the large fair trado meeting which was
held at St. James* Hall this afternoon,
Mr. Howard Vincent, M. P. for Sheffield
said that tlie cause in England that was
uppermost in the minds of the people
was this question of duties. He said
that England for a quarter of a century
had been the victim of other countries,
owing to her persistence in holding to
free trade. Referring to President
Cleveland's message, he said that he
viewed its suggestions aud recommendations with alarm. Mr. Vincent stated
that a resolution had been adopted by
the Fair Trade party to place the food
producers of England on an equal footing with those of othor countries. Mr.
Poynter, who moved the resolution, contended that thj, present cheapness of
bread was au unmitigated curse. Mr.
Albert Muntz, M, P., supported tho motion and spoke to the same point.

People who Read and Reflect, aftor
reading, npon tho many published testimonials regarding Northrop k Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure,
can scarcely fail to perceive that evidence
so positive aud concurrent could not be
adduced in behalf of a remedy of doubtful efficacy. The facts proven by such
evidence arc that it roots out impurities
of the blood, restores digestion, enriches
the circulation, and regulates tlie bowels
and Hvcr.
Hurt in tit uu on tUc Irish -QhcmIIou.
London, Deo. 8.—Lord Hartington
presided to-day at a conference of dissidents: held" -at"- Westminster Hall.
There wero GOO delegates present and
many Indies were seated on the platform. Lord Derby offered n resolution
favoring increased exertions for tho
purpose of strengthening the dissident
party. Ho said thnt many constituencies, especially in Scotland, showed a
marked increase of feeling in their
favor. The Irish question had been
so prolonged that the people might
Bay that it must be settled somehow,
but they wero slow to understand that
the granting of an Irish Parliament
would be no settlement, but only the
beginning of an agitation as violent
and troublous us any thut Ireland has
ever experienced. Lord Hartington,
replying to tho vote of confidence
which was taken nt the meeting, denied that the dissidents had deserted
Liberal principles. They woro told
that the modus operandi iu Ireland
has been changed ('Wing to tho-sympathy expressed by Englishmen. For
his part ho could not seo any great
change. Boycotting, intimidutbn, resistance and evictions, uud hon payment of rent continued as before.
Thuae acts had tho open Biippurt t,f a
portion, and the toleration of the
whole body of English Homo Rulers.
"Remember Mitchelstown)" had been
flying about hither nnd thither to animate tho passions of the people in tho
struggle uguinst law and order. In
fact, every method of open resistnnco,
short of actual rebellion, hnd been resorted to with the tacit consent of Mr.
Gladstone aud the Liberal leaders.
Tho-MissidentB, however, having come
to a Batisfact'iry understanding with
the Conservatives, would continue to
co-operato with them. In reference
to the tariff question, Lord Hartington
said that it was impossible to sptak
too strongly of others who hnd ndvo-
cated a return to protection. Uo hoped
that the Conservative leadois would
weigh well the cousuquoueus of supporting such a policy. Tint would
certainly load to a disruption of the
Unionists. In conclusion the spanker
Baid that the advocates of Fair Trade
must be responsible for tlu; consequences of their doctrine.
Henry Clement, Almonte, writes: "For
a long time I was troubled with chronic
rheumatism, at times wholly disabled; I
tried anything and everything recommended, but failed to get any benefit,
until a gentleman who was cured of rheumatism by Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil,
told me about it. 1 began using it both
internally and externally, and before two
bottles were used IjTM radically cured.
We find tt a household medicine, and for
croup, burns, cuts and bruises, it has no
equal."
