Wednesday Evening, Jan, 4, 1888.
Onr Washington Letter.
(From Our Regular Correspondent.)
Wasiiingtox, Dec. 27.—Mr. Mc
dreary, of Kentucky, will ut tbo
lirst opportunity re-introduce into
the house the bill requesting and
authorizing tho president to "invite
tho several governments of the republics of Mexico, Oontral und
South America, und the empire of
Brazil to join the United States in a
conference to be held it Washington, in the United States, for tbe
purpose of discussing and recommending for adoption to their re-
pective governments some plan of
arbitration for the settlement of disagreements and disputes that may
hereafter arise between them, and
for considering questions relating to
the improvement of business intercourse between the said countries,
and to encourage such reciprocal
commercial relations as will be beneficial to all and secure more extensive markets for the products of
each of the said countries." The
bill provides that the president shall
appoint six commissioners who shall
attend the conference on behalf of
the United States, and shall report
the proceedings thereof to the president, who shall transmit tho report to congress. An appropriation
of $50,000 to pay tho reasonable excuses of tho conference is provided
for. After the adjournment of the
senate last week the fourteen pages
began celebrating the beginning of
their holiday noisily. After a few
minutes they were summoned to one
of the cloak-rooms, to which they
went reluctantly, expecting ■ to receive a lecture upon decorum. They
were drawn up in line and Oapt.
Bassett, tho doorkeeper, handed
to each one a $5 note, which he told
them was a Christmas gift from
Senator Stanford. A good story is
told of one of the fair dames of the
diplomatic corps who recently called
at the residence of a government
official whoso wife is noted for her
domesticity. The husband, himself,
chanced to be at home and pending
the descent of nradamc from the
nursery, went into the drawing-
room to greet tho lovely foreigner:
The following conversation ensued.
"Ah, monsieur, you have one very
homely wife!" The host, whose
bettor half was really not distin
quished for her beauty of face,
which, however, was more than compensated for a superb figure, a graceful carriage and charming amiability,
stammered in reply. "Ah, Madame! why really—-do you know—I
—" "Yes;" innocently explained his
visitor in her pretty, broken English, "Yes, she very homely. In
faot, she stay at home all tho time."
The public buildings bill, already introduced in the senate, calls for
thirty-six new buildings at a cost of
$8,500,000. To this is to be added
money for enlargement of buildings,
etc., the grand total asked by senators amounting to $10,241,000. A
strong combination can be formed in
the house for a butch of bills of this
character. The south, as usual, is
not very modest in its requests in
this direction. It is said that a
tariff bill will be reported to tho
house in February. It will take n
little time to determine how much
timo can be allowed for debate
before amendments nre introduced,
and with that question settled the
house can in all probability get well
under way by March and havo tho
tariff bill ready for the senate to
pass t-pon. It will, I think, reach
the president some timo in the
Spring. The republican members
of the ways and means committee
are making inquires in advance as to
the effect of the expected administration tariff bill. As to wool Ihe
reported treasury tariff bill by taking $10,000,000 off tho pri-sent re-
venue from woollen manufactures
would cut the duties down one third.
The duty collected on woollen manufactures in the last fiscal year was
$29,729,717, or 67 por cent on$14,-
235,243 of imports, tho largest imports in value since 1875 and the
heaviest duty on record.
In Ootober, 188C, there wero
723,600 membors of the Knights of
Labor organization, and in October
of this year 300,000. It is now
stated from headquarters that thero
nro but 200,000 persons members of
tho order. This shows an alarming
decrease, and it is probable that the
once great organization will soon
fall to pieces. Alleged corruption
of tho officials and gonornl dissastis-
fnction nre said to lie the principal
causes of the stampede.
The doors of all the great Russian
universities, with tho exception
of tho University of Moscow, hnvo
boon closed by order of the czur, on
account of tho riotous conduct of
the students.

the orowd below, severely wounding
three of thoir number. A rush was

■»l if gailj) $ ritish Columbian
Wednesday Evening;, tan. 4. 188S,
.The revolution whicli took place
nt Honolulu some months ago was
of such n thorough character that
most persons bolieved there would be
no further attempts on the part of
the officials to defy the rights of the
people. This belief seems to have
been scarcely justified. Late advices state that King Kalakaua is
at his old tricks. He does not like
the   new   constitution,   which   de-
firives him of absolute power, and
las begun to veto such measures as
do not meet with his approval.
This has brought on a conflict between the legislature und tho king,
the former maintaining that the
sovereign has no power of veto at
all. It is not likely the people will
consent to go backward, and Kalakaua may ns well make up his
mind to yield the point or look out
for his kingly office. Tlie probabilities are that beforo long the Sandwich Islands will have no king at
all, but Will become a republic in
which American and British ideas
will very largely prevail.
It seems that the professional
opinion of Dr. Mackenzie, the
eminent Scotch specialist, is likely
to he confirmed by results in the
case of the German crown prince.
Br. Mackenzie was of opinion that
it was not cancer. When tho caso
became alarming, a number of German physicians wero consulted, and
a report was circulated in the German newspapers to the effect that
Dr. Mackenzie's diagnosis had been
imperfect, and tlmt the crown prince
had cancer. Dr. Mackenzie was
censured greatly, and the German
royal family was blamed for putting
the crown prince in charge of a
foreign physician whose accomplishments had, they thought, been
quite overrated. For a time every
body believed the trouble was cancer; but Dr. Mackenzie, although
greatly puzzled over the case, never
really accepted this theory. The
princo has improved greatly, und at
present shows signs of recovery.
The cancer theory is decidedly losing ground, and the Scotch doctor
seems very hopeful of ultimate
triumph. Wo are not hearing a
great deal from the German papers
just now about Dr. Mackenzie's
failure.
It was announced some days ago
that the Grand Trunk had obtained
possession of the Northern it Northwestern Railway of Canada. The
announcement is very probably correct. The Northern & Northwestern runs from Hamilton to Colling-
wood, on Georgian Bay, und from
Toronto to Collingwood, Meaford,
Barrie, Fcnetanguishcne, and the
Muskoka region. The road is in
good condition, financially and
otherwise, but it-always labored under great difficulties inasmuch as it
had no satisfactory railway connection beyond its termini. For many
years it has been expected that this
road would fall into the hands of the
Grand Trunk or the C. P. R. Tho
wator route from Duluth and Fort
Arthur, at tho head of Lake Superior, to the southeastern part of
Georgian Bay, has come to bo one of
great importance. Large quantities of grain are carried over that
route, and shipped by the Northern
Railway to Toronto, whence they
are sent by vessels to American
and Canadian ports. The 0. P. R.
got hold of the Toronto, Grey A
Bruce Railway, which terminates at
Owen Sound, and this line has been
used vory oxtensively for the company's summer traffic. At Collingwood there is a bettor harbor than
at owen Sound, and it is the term-
inusof two or three steamboat lines
which havo been running iu connection with the Northern A Northwestern. Tho people of Owen Sound
were greatly delighted when tlieir
railway came into the hands of tho
O.P.R., and the people of Collingwood will doubtless rejoice at the
announcement that tho Northern it
Northwestern has fallen to tbo
Grand Trunk. That powerful road
has now a regular net work of trucks
with termini on Lake Huron. It
lint touehes the lako at Sarnia,
where it has two lines, then at
Goderioh, Kincardine, Southampton, Meaford, Collingwood, and Pen-
ptanguithene. It is expected thajt,
with the advantages of an excellent
harbor at Collingwood, tho Grand
Trunk will make a big push for the
lake and through trade. This year
the Grand Trunk will probably have
its Sault Ste. Marie branch finished,
which will give it a new connection
in the middle states and enable it to
reach Manitoba. It it quite apparent that the old road does not propose to surrender anything to the
C.P.R. The latter, however, pos-
sesses several most valuable advantages. It hu the shortest lino, it
absolutely owns the wholo rood
across thl continent, it has been
heavily bonused and is, comparatively, tree from debt, and it can Ire operated mora cheaply than any other
transcontinental line, We nre ot
opinion that tho time it not very far
off when the western terminus of
the Grand Trunk will be on the Pacifio coast. When that time cornea
the traffic advantages of Britisli
Colombia will be greatly increased.
With two transcontinental Canadian raids terminating at our doors,
we shall have comraerciul facilities
second to nono on tbe continent.
Thero are, practically, but two railways in Canada, tho 0. P. R. and
the G. T. R., and tbey scorn destined to absorb all tbe small lines that
remain.

_ SARAH'S NEW YEAR.
Sho was taking a littlo bit of comfort
boforo she dressed hersell; a great lovely
bunch of clematis, that she had gathered
yesterday from the decorations, clasp'd
. lovingly in her hand, lt was the only
Sow Year's presvnt sho expected, nnd
that s!ic had given herself. Hho had but
a fow minutes to love it, for a clear voico
sounded from tho foot of tho stairs:
"Come, Sarah, what makes you so lato
this morning ? Wo havo boen waiting
for yon thii long time." Then Sarah
flew around; she know It would bs a
busy day. In fpet all days were busy
ones to nor. Poor lonely little Sarah I
Three years before, her father sailed
away in his ship, leaving her at Mr.
Smith's, to be boarded lor a year, leaving money to pay for her board. Tho
year passed, and then another year, and
then another, and tho father nevor came
back! Neither did his ship; it was
' iost on tho ocean.
Poor Sarah stayed on at Mr. Smith's;
but there wns no moro money to pay for
hor hoard, or buy hor rlothus, and Mr.
Smith trad daughters of his own and not
a very Rivat deal of money; so, from
'.rein;* u boarder, Surah had gradually
boiromo a littlo maid-of-all-work whoso
on ness was to run hither and thither
all day lonrr, wherever Mary, the kltcl'iMS
girl, or Mamie, tho grown-up daughter,
or Louise, tho twelve-year old daughter,
or Howe, or Harry, the sons chose to
s.nd her.
They wero not unkind to her; Mrs.
Smith often mid, "Poor child" In talking
about her, anJ they gave hor decent
cloth: s that kept her warm in Winter.
But nobody kissed her, or planned for
her pleasure, or gave her anything pretty;
and Louise, without really meaning to he
ugly, often reminded her that sho must
wnrk for her board and clothes, and
should therefore do without fretting
whatever she wu told to Jo.
Sarah shed a few tears over the silver
she was polishing that morning. She felt
more forlorn than usual; she always felt
worse on holidays. Besides, she was
dreadfully disappointed.
A Miirilny-sehool sleigh-rirlo was to be
takon that afternoon, Sarah's class being
anion:; tho number. At tho hr. akfaat-
tabli;, S.rrah passing In and out, brin.'ing
fieri) plates of buckwheat cakes, heard
the talk. "It won't be possible for me
to let Sarah go this afternoon; the poor
ihild hns no clonk, und her old sank
really do.'B not look suitable; they will
ill bo dressed in their best, I am sorry;
E wonM have got her something respect-
ibie if we cirnld have altordud it. Louise,
,mu must bring ber some of the calce and
.'iindies, nnrl she will have to content
Uor eit ut home."     ;
Now Sarah had resolved on being n
mimyr, and wearing the ugly-looking old
sack, two years to small for her, for* tlie
snlro of the sleigh ride. No wonder tho
tears fell.
I inner was over, and Louise was fluttering upstairs and down, trying to got
drriwi.1 to her satisfaction.
Sarah, with a pale, aod face waa doing
her bidding hen ud there, when the
door-bell rang.
"There I" said LouIm, "I do believe
they have come, and I'm not half ready.
Sarah, wby dm t you hurry and button
my boots ? I do believe you are as slow
aa you can be, on purpne."
Harry went to the door, before
Sarah could get diwuAit**/ Hhltway
down, she heard a loud, ringing voice:
"Well, my hearty, do yon live hrro?
Yes; woll, where is my little SnraiWdo
you know? She must bo—-In loo! I'vo
got her:"
And behold little Sarah with ono wild
_ uliout that was eithor a lan.f.i or u i ry,
tlir.rw hurself into the rrtroin urns nf li, r
father, nnd waa hugged uni kisjud, and
inrrled through tho hall to the dining-
, ro.r ri.
Then whit talking and exclaiming
. t'loM will "Got shipwrecked among
i .w*> jabbering natives end couldn't get
word anywhere nor do anything; had a
fever, too, that laid ma up for a spoil."
I bis was In brief ths sailor's itorr. In
tho mi Ist of tho talk, cam* word tbat
tlie nleigh-riders would not bo ready for
half at hour.
"What's thlt?" laid tho sailor; and
it was rill explained to bim. Ho uked
more questions, and Mrs. Smith, with red
clucks, explained about tho bad-looking
shawl.
, "Oh, oh I" he aid, "flaw we c*n it
I that Of conns she must go sleigh-riding. You. two boys lend i hand and let
nuget my box In at tho kitchen door,
i i ood thing I brought that one instead of
tlio others. There!" u after a llttlo
tugging ho drew out o heavy package.
"1 guess that wiU covsr up the faded
gown. Bather too short thlt gown is
nud not aa pretty a color as it might be.
but we'll lix it all right now that fatbsr
has como." Bsbold, in lea time than It
takes mo to tell it, Sarah was arrayed in
a long fur sack that almost covered her
dress, a dainty little fut cap, to match
Ihi sack, perched on her hood, ud
Louise, looking on, uid, "Al truo as I
l.vc, that is seal Ikial"
"It's ill thit," Mid ths milor, nodding
his head in pride ud pleasure over
Sarah. "I didn't get wrecked and bring
up m the gold regions for nothing. Mora
than that, while Iwas about it, I've got
something else here that belongs to
.Sarah to do what shslikas with;'"ud
lie drew out another tick and cap as
much liko Sarah's as possible, onfr •
triilo larger.
"Oh father I" ths ssid, with sptrUiDf
eye, "I think it wiU just Dt LouissT"^
"All right, my birdie; if you want it to

both for good and evil, cannot bj undone;
tho mistakes that we have made cannot

A Sluggish Liver
Causes tho Stomach nnd Bowels to bo-
come disordered, aud the whole system
to suffer from debility. In all such
cases Ayer's Pills give prompt relief.
After muoh suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles. I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Fills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their aotion, and their occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condi-
tion.—Ralph wecman. Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, -whioh was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I have never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and increase the appetite, more surely than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Havorhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer's
Fills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dys-
pepsls, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes ot Ayer's Pills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invig^
orate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I have used these
Wis ta my family, for years, and they
never fail to give entire satisfaction.—

spit mllil Showiua fur tin* Chief4-mlirs
of Provincial Trade.
The improvements carried to completion in this city during the year just
closed aro of tho most satisfactory and
permanent character, Especially during the latter part of the year, Ihe
sound of the hammer and the trowel
hus beon heard in all diroctions, and a
wonderful change is perceptible iu the
appearance of the business streets of
tha city. Wondon buildings have boen
torn down, and in their place have
been erected somo of the finest and
most costly structures to be found
anywhere in tlie province. From the
summary given below it will be seen
that quite a numbor of largo and expensive buildings have gono up, nud
although the total expenditure is very
large for nn old city with a small population, it may be said that the buildings are almost without exception the
result of private enterprise. We have
had scarcely any public buildings or
works at all during the year. And
this is but the commencement. It is
understood that the managers of tho
Douglas estato have plans prepared for
more brick blocks on Columbia and
Front streets in the spring, and those
who own unsightly wooden structures
in the business part nf the city will
soon be forced to substitute brick or
lose their tenants. It is believed thero
will bo quite as much activity this year
in tho building line as there was lust.
Attention is invited to the following
list, which embraces most of the principal structures erected during the
year:
Masonic & Oddfellows block, corner
Columbia and Lome atroets. 08x120
ft; built of brick 3 stories, height 60
ft. Contains 3 stores en the gronnd
flats, 10 cilices nnd public hall (31x100)

is tho finest in the province. U. \V.

The building operations at Victoria

Vancouvor has supplied no statement so far, but is believed buildings
and improvements to the value of over
$1,000,000 have been made in that city
during tho season.
Nanaimo reports the number of new
buildingB without giving the value of
them. Chief among tho improvements
in that city are the gas works and
water works. The total expenditure
on permanent improvements in the
black diamond city will probably reach
about $75,000.
Kamloops made very satisfactory
progress both in population and local
improvements. The Sentinel claims a
population of 1100, and gives a list of
about 70 now buildings of various
