The "high licence" system in
America seems to bo a very prosperous thing for tbe revenue, for a contemporary states that when Omaha
had a liquor licence of $100 for each
saloon the city had U0 saloons, and
the revenue derived from licences
amounted to $14,000 per year. The
licence was raised to $1,000, and
the number of saloons was reduced
in a fow months io aevrnty, and the
city obtained a revenue from licences of $70,000 per year. The experience in Minneapolis was similar.
Under the low licence system there
were 800 saloons in the city. The
The licence was raised to $1,000
and the number of saloons has been
reduced to 200, while the revenue
has been increased to $120,000 per
year.—Bracer's Gazette.
A plain-spoken country preacher
in Texas was called upon to make a
few remarks at the grave of a man
who was somewhat unpopular and
who daring his life, was much addicted to drink. The preacher fulfilled his task in the following word:
—"With what shall I compare the
deceased's remains! Shall I com-
pare him with the sun! No, never.
The sun blinds people with its brilliancy. The deceased never blinded
anybody with his brilliancy. Shall
I compare him with the stars! No,
not with the stars that can ouly be
seen at night. Our late friend
could be seen both day and night at
the saloons. I think, on the whole,
we had better compare him with
tbe moon. The moon gets full
every once in a while, and so did
the deceased. I'veheardthatthemoon
borrows its light and so did the remains, for he smoked a great deal
and was always letting his cigar go
out Feaee to his ashes."—Texas
Sittings.
The unfortunate holders of Panama Canal shares and bonds must be
in a puzzled frame of mind. A few
days ago De Lesseps proclaimed
that no further loan would be needed by the company, Now he appeals to Premier Rouvier for authority to raise a'new loan by means of
an issue of lottery bonds. The loan
of last August was procured by  in-
is no surer sign that that way lias
been lost than the dishonoring approval of the bitter enemies of such
ideas. When, for instance, tho contemptuous opponents of the president's known views smile with
scornful patronage upon his course,
the president may know that he has
goi.o wrong.—Harpers Weekly.

There is a pleasant coincidence in
the arrival of Mr. Chamberlain to
conduct, with his associates and
the United States commissioners, a
negotiation for the adjustment of tbe
pending fishery trouble with Great
Britain, and the arrival of Sir Lyon
Playfair and hiB associates to urge
upon our government tho adjustment of all international difficulties
by arbitration. The latter delegation was received respectfully by
the president, who heard the od-
dreises of Sir Lyon Playfair and
others, and made a reply which, if
necessarily general, had the unmistakable tone of sincerity which characterizes allhisspeeohes. He said that
he was glad that the effort should
be made by the two countries which
claim to be in the van of civilization
and progress, and that a country
whioh, like the United States, at
once demonstrates the advantages of
peace and illustrates a military power which removes all suspicion of
fear, is in a most favorable condition
to consider the proposition. He
alluded to the touching support of
the plan by English laborers, who
feel in the increased cost of living
the consequences of war, and who
furnish an illustration which American laborers will naturally ponder.
Practical measures, however, the
president said that he had not considered. But in the administration
of government, he said, with a significance which will be generally understood, "difficulty often arises in
the attempt carefully to apply ideas
which in themselves challenge unqualified approval." The very task
and test of statesmanship is to apply
such ideas in a manner which commands general approval and pro
motes the general welfare; and there

LAST KIfiHT'8 DESPATCHES.
GERMANY AND RUSSIA.
London, Deo. 3.—Tho Moscow Oa-
tette, in an article on the relations between England and Russia, continues
the attack upon Germany, and invites
England to abandon her jealousy of
Russia regarding India, come to a
thorough understanding with Russia
upon all questions, and turn her attention lo Germany as a dangerous
competitor cf England by land and
sea. ,
The recent order of Prince Bismarck
to the German Imperial Bank to refuse
further advances on Russian stocks is
now asserted to have been issued solely to check the active speculation, not
only in Russian, but other foreign securities, which has for some time been
goiug ou in.Germany, and was not a
political move designed to teach the
Czar the importance, from a financial
point of view, of preserving the goodwill of Germany. As has been recently published, there is much to be said
in favor of theformer assumption, and,
if it be correct, it gives support to the
fear entertained in some quarters of
the approaching monarchical crisis in
Germany. It is stated recently by apparently well informed correspondents
at Berlin and Vienna, that the failure
of the Leipsic Discount Company has
drawn attention to the extensive transactions and investments of German
banks in joint stock industrial enterprises, and it was asserted by a Berlin
writer in tho London Economist that
besides a furthej^continuance of the
practices would.na^.in a disostiai '
i BnMicihl'crisisfittsaermnuy. Inquir
ies since mru'iitjllirw that this opiuiun
is not shared by' leading financiers at
the German capital. It may be nevertheless, that the German Government •'
sees good reasons to discourage speculation in the Fatherland. There are
certainly some grounds for "such precaution. There are also strong symptoms of financial troublo in Italy and
France. In Rome, speculation in
stock exchange securities and in real
estate has lately been increasing, and
in France thero is much anxiety
among the holders of Panama Canal
shsres.
TOE GERMAN CROWN TRIKCE.
Lonoon, Dec. 3.— According to
court reports the Crown Prince declined to see Prince Bismarck regarding the formal act of renouncing the
throne, and writing a letter to the
Emperor which stopped Brsrmirck's
goiug to Snn Reino. The relations between Prince William and the' Chancellor are strengthening. The Prince,
under tho assent of Ihe emperor, is
about to be instructed in tho routine
business of the foreign'oihee and finance department. Count. Winteriield,
upon returning to-pay from a visit to
San Rerao, presented a report upon
the Crown Prince's condition to the
emperor. Regarding his general condition the report is favorable, but no
improvement of Iris malady is indicated.
A resident of Breslau hns written to
the emperor offering his own larynx
as a substitute for the Crown Prince's,
if the surgeons are willing to perform
tbo operation of transplanting it. Private information reports'that there has
been no decided improvement in the
condition of the Crosu Prince. His
physicians are doing all they can to
prolong his life under the circum-
staucss, and admit that there is no
chauco of removing the disease except
by an operation, leaving the chances
of curing tho patient but small, and
risk of hastening his end very great.
His most sanguine physicians state that
burring accidents, suoh as colds, etc.,
the Crown Princo may livo five years,
while others hardly venture to prognosticate his term of life. In any
case it almost oertain he can never be
Emperor of Germany in anything but
name. Prince William has not had
the grim experience that his father
and grandfather have had, and this
fact increases the general feeling of
apprehension. The situation at the
present moment is not such as would
make the succession of a young inexperienced, and at the same time belli-
e-rec emporor, a matter of indifference.
Tno danger of "revanche" has iu-
crensed rather than diminished of late,
and in the event of war it now seems
ss though Franco would secure an im
portant alliance. The anti-German
tendencies whioh Bro at all. times st
work in Russia, appear to have boon
strongly reinforced within the last few
months.

MONTREAL NEWB.
MowrkKAL, Dee: 5.—It' irgenerslly
beli^sedi.'here that negotiations ia
NrnrSmj torlhe new Quebec loan of
$3,500,000 hsve entirely collapsed.
Tho belief is strengthened by word received from New York that the authorities of tho Chemical bank, when th*
loan was stated to have been deposited,
know absolutely nothing about any
such matter. This ia generally regarded as» ?ery serious matter, aad
indicates tbat'the whole scheme is a

The San Francisco Bulletin says
that all the transcontinental railways are crowded with immigrants
coming to California from the east.
A careful estimate places the number of arrivals at about 1000 per
day, exclusive of ordinary local und
business travelers. This great volume of immigration, says our cotemporary, is taxing the resources of the
railways to their utmost extent.
Freight trains have to lie sidetracked, and locomotives are so scarce
that the ordinary traffic of the roads
is everywhere delayed. Most of
these immigrants are destined for
Southern California, attracted thither by stories of fabulous wealth and
incomparable attractions whioh havo
been- industriously circulated far
and wide by tho real estate boomers.
Thousands of thorn are Canadians
who, for various reasons, have sold
out their homes in the east and havo
determined to seek milder-climes
where they think the chances for
advancement are better. California
is a very nice place; but thousands
of the people who are now flocking
thither under the impression that it
is a Paradise, will soon find their
mistake, and they will then drift into other regions where their fortunes
may be made better or worse. From
the overflow British Columbia will
doubtless receive considerable accessions to her population; and, through
her, Canada will receive back hundreds of her former citizens.
If the fishery commissioners fail
in adjusting the fishery dispute, they
are going to have a good time anyway.' A Washington dispatch says
Mr. Chamberlain has become the
social lion of the hour at the capital Every night a dinner, or ball,
or reception, or entertainment of
aome sort is provided for the distinguished English commissioner.
Secretary Bayard has had his dinner
in honor of Chamberlain on the 25th,
and on the same evening the British
minister at Washington "gave a reception at the legation, which was
attended by all the commissioners.
Thete entertainments were very
"elaborate in detail, and such as to
impress the British fishery commissioner with both tho resources and
the benevolence of the American
people. We are not told percisely
what sort of diet comes before these
commissioners, but it is to be hoped
they are well provided with fish,
which is said to be a food peculiarly
fitted for tbe development of brain
power. Sir Charles Tupper hails
from a region where fish are plentiful, but it is doubtful whether Mr.
Chamberlain's circumstances in this
respect have been equally fortunate.
As a rule, the Americans are fully
a match for the representatives of
Great Britain in a contest of de-
plomacy. They generally get away
with the big end, and leave us with
a fruitful crop of fruitless regrets.
Through their shrewdness and our
stupidity the map of North America
haa been shockingly disfigured.
Maine and Oregon and Washington
Territory are striking examples. If
Mr. Chamberlain is taking lots of
fish, let him have a good time; but
we don't want him to repeat any of
the distinguished blunders that have
perpetuated the memories of his dis-
The time for electing a mayor
and oonncil for the city is now near
at hand, and wo understand that
candidates are already preparing for
the contest. It would greatly simplify tie work of canvassing, and relieve the embarrassment of many
electors, if all candidates would make
a publio announcement of their intention. This has come- to be the
regular practice elsewhere, and the
person who neglects to issue his
card it commonly regarded with more
or lett suspicion, as he is supposed
to avoid a public announcement in
the belief that his success lies in
what it known as a "still hunt."
By all means let us know who aro
in the field, and the electors will be
able to make an intelligent choice.
Wd hope the ohoice will be intelligent, -the power of choosing municipal representatives was placed in
the hands of the people under tho
supposition, that it would be exercised trKk judgment, The elector who
casts'his ballot for a man whom he
would not trust as a counsellor in
the management of his own estate,
it guilty of inexcusable folly. The
material from which to choose eight
- capable men to manage the affairs
of the city* next year is not, unfortunately, as plentiful as one might
wish:- A great many citizens who
would make excellent councillors
either lack the necessary legal qualification, or are unwilling to givo
their services to the city. But we
have no doubt a sufficient number
of honest and capable men may be
found, and out of these we hope the
electors will choose the best, without feaf or favor. Sentiment and
peraonal obligation ought not to
oount for anything in t civil or political eoihteet Persons who have been
intrratted with the franchise should
remember that their ballets are in a
•ean publio property. A man who
votef for an unworthy oandidate be-
cauaei h» It aader personal obligation
to hfth foifg*U that he, as a voter, is
under obligation to the public to
-*. hit ballot for such candidates
as in his opinion will best promoto
the public good. Although every
community is composed of single individuals, no inomber of it possesses
such absolute independence us will
justify him in overlooking tire interests of others. If the partnors
in a business firm were so to act, the
affairs of tho firm must speedily go
to ruin; and voters in a municipality
aro under vory similar obligations
with respect to the exorciso of the
franchise. W'tr shall best promote
the interests of the community by a
faithful and honest exercise of our
rights as citizens.

A Virginia Legislator1, Etoqueaeo.
I recently heard' a good story told ol a
wellkuowii Virginian, who was a member
of the' general assembly ol 1870 or '73,
und it was related as an actual fact. The
house had under consideration a bill iii
reluiion to internal improvements aud
the legislator in question was opposing
the measure, and strongly expressed bim.
self in opposition to having a "perfect not
work ol railroads in Virginia.' He had
a fondness for appealing to the traditions
ol the past, and urging hi, confreres in the
house to stick to the old landmarks. In
tlio debate he savud his brst sentence lor
the last, and aimed to put all the dramatic
power ho could control in his peroration
Those who have been in the hall uf the
house'of delegated will remember that
there is a large portrait of Lord Chatham
lo lire liirht of the speaker, and that a
life-size painting ot Thomas Jefferson is
to the left. When the peroratiou was
boing delivered tlie (gentleman from —
comity exclaimed, with all tbe eloquence
and 'vehemence at his command, as he
faced iho portrait of Lord Chatham and
pointed his index linger at it "As I ber
hold the immortal Jeffenon looking
don ri Upon me lioiu yonder gilded frame
I gather Iresh inspiration and appeal to
you patriotic sons of Virginia with al I Iho
force at my command to stick to the old
stage coach ot Jefferson and stand by llie
traditions ol our lathers." ilelore Ihe
gentleman from — took his seat be was
told that he not appealed to tlio portrait
of Jefferson, but had invoked the image
ot Lord Chatham, and tho houso laughed
aa it had never laughed before.—Sit*

of Pullman coming to St Louis to locate
his shops ? Well, ho had settled on this
city In his mind, and even the rapacity
ot the real estate ownen did not terrify
hiui. I know Irani what he told me that
he conaiderorl St Louis the most central

Ui change his intentions by a mere accident lie ran down from Chicago one
very hot day. lt was a regular morvhor,
ana the old timer was sipping his sherry
cobbler, with its tropical trimmings,
; Wltli great gusto. Pullman had not ro.no
prepared lor a Saharan expedition, and
when he ventured out on Fourth stroet
in a plug hat, black Prince Albert and
htr.ivy suiting, he imagined himself
•lauding on a thin crust that separated
the city from the tires of Tophet
George M. wits a practical man, and
he ihstantly began rlaiiriiig on the effects
of the climate on tliu human system. He
eventually concluded1 that a man en-

After much suffering from .wor an

cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic PillB.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their action, and their occasional use
keeps me In a perfectly healthy cbinii-

Twenty-five years ago I sufforod from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I have never been witii*
out them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and Increase the appetite, more surely than any other iiie-Ji-
cine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, ll.n-is.

I know of no remedy equal to Ayor's
Pills for Stomach and Wvor dlaonlers.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dys*
pepsla, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, Buffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Pills, takeu in moderato
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Milea, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I have used these
Pills In my family, for years, and they
never -fall to give entire satisfaction.—

What Phyiioiams Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption has for some
time been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and effectual meana
of conveying to Diseased Oigans, "Curatives," but in caaes of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment wns practicably impossible until the Introduction of the Starr Kidney
Pad. it costs leu tban a single prescription and Is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of -infernal
Medicinal dosing. Worn Immediately over
the seat of Disease, Its curative properties
become absorbed by tbe diseased and enfeebled Organs,continuously and directly,
effects, and cures when nothing else can.
The Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A more valuable
discovery as a true remedy for Kidney
Diseases was nover made.—Medical Gazette
The Starr Kidney Pad. manufactured
ln Toronto, Is a permanent sure cure for
diseases, disorders and ailments of the
Kidneys, Bladder and urinary secretive
system, or attendant complaints, causing
pain In the small of the back, sides,etc.,
producing urinary disorders, such as too

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' Eclectrio Oil,
told me about it. I began using it both
internally and externally, and before two
bottles were used I was radically cured,
We find it a household medicine, and for
croup, bams, cuts and bruises, it has no
equal."
