A Brussels paper says that lute
advices from Zanzibar urn to tbo effect that the Britisli East African
Association has concluded a treaty,
under which the sultan of Zanzibar
cedes to the association 50 years
sovereignty over the territory between Port Wanga, at the mouth of
the Oumba Kivor, and Vita, n distance of over 35 kilometres. This
will facilitate the opening of a route
to Victoria Nyaiizu, and show that
England is desirous of founding u
colony which will extend her influence to the sources of tho Nile.
It is probable that when Stanley
returns he will bo asked to undertake this work of extending civilization.
A London despatcli says: Lord
Randolph Churchill's trip to Russia
has proved a grand success as an
advertising tour.. His departure
was surrounded with mystery. Surmises as to his object were plenty,
and since his interview with the
czar on Monday, there is absolutely
an element of excitement in the
thing. The story which is going
around, and which is believed,
is that, although Lord Randolph
Churchill started without any mission, one has grown up for him on
the route. The czar, says tlie theory,
knowing that Lord Salisbury is
anti-Russian, and that Lord Churchill is against Lord Salisbury for having continued to run the government without him, has seized upon
the opportunity presented by Lord
Churchill's presence for communicating directly with the Queen. Tho
czar has offered, according to good
authority, to give England any
guarantee sho might require for the
non-interference of Russia with
English affairs iu Asia, if England
will keep aloof from the triple al
liance and agree not to oppose
Russia in Bulgarian matters. The
bait would be a rather tempting
one, only it is difficult, to understand what guarantees Russia could
give that any sane government
would accept as solid, und it is also
difficult to imagine what pretence
English diplomacy could devise to
excuse the failure to abide by tho
Berlin treaty as regards the enforcing of treaty rights. It is learned
that this much is certain: Lord
Churchill has telegraphed both to
Lord Salisbury and tbo Queen.
The despatches were sent in cipher.
Interesting news may result from
Lord Churchill's wanderings.
Our Washington correspondent
says: It is probably as certain as
anything in the futnro can be tbat
a tariff bill will puss the house this
session. There will be a fight. It
will begin almost as soon as the
holiday recess is over. The " plan
of campaign " adopted at Oak View
will bo carried out. It consists of a
series of sharp battles ana retreats.
The majority of the democrats will
start out to get as much tariff reduction and ns littlo protection as
they ean. But they are prepared
to retreat sooner than take a defeot.
Whenever they find they can not
get what thoy would like they will
compromise, taking the best they
can get. ' They will follow this plan
throughout, compromising as to
every detail until they have secured
a bill that can pass tbe house.
While starting out with the avowal
of antagonism to protection as a
principle and maintaining tbat position to the last, they will go so far
in thoir concessions probably as to
accept a bill for which Mr. Randall
and his followers can voto without
doing violence tr) tlieir protection
theories. Yet it is expected to get
a bill that will make a considerable
reduction in tho revenue. Tho proposition going into tlio committee
will bo for protty stiff-backed tariff
reform without any recognition of
protection principles. Its management, it is understood, will bo
directed by Mr. Carlisle ns much as
if ho were the chairman of the ways
and moans committee. The committeo go into their work with their
courso already marked out for thorn.
Mr. Gay will go on the committee
to represent Mr. Randall, unless tlio
speaker changes his mind, and the
two factions of the party will probably come to an understanding of
what is to bo done beforo they get
into the house. The bill will brr
taken up item by item and un agreement or compromise reached at each
step. Probably no onu reduction
will lm mnde just as at lirst proposed, but eaeh item will probably
remain in the bill in a modified
form. A groat effort will Ire made to
consider tlie matter impassionatoly
nnd not lo insist upon anything
that would cause a serious disagreement.

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
WELL  DONK .STANLBV.
Bki-j.lv, Jan. 10.—Dr. Schwemfurtli,
a German traveller and naturalist,
writes from Cairo under dato of Dec,
30th that tha news announcing the arrival of H. M. Stanley at the camp of
Einin Bey, had reached Cairo on Dec.
22nd. C
BEHIOUS TROl'DLK   WITH TH^ OH'OPTEBS.
LoN-noN, Jan. 10.—Tho conflict
winch took place yesterday between
the crofters of Lewis. Island and the
police and troops was, it transpires,
much more serious than at first reported. Hitherto the trouble with tho
crofters has been cunfined, to a great
extent, to Skye, the inhabitants of
Lewis contenting themselves with
muttoriiiga of discontent and expressions uf sympathy with their brethren
to the southeast. But quite recently
the police of Lewis have observed
symptoms of a concerted resistance to
the laws protecting the occupants of
what tho crofters regard as common
land. Included in tho large number
of persons wounded in the em-minti
fight were tho proprietor and fiscal officer, who wns in command of tho
troops. Eleven of the leaders uf the
crofters were arrested. Tho police
have beon largely reinforced today and
the military and naval forces in and
about the island have been strengthen
ed. Intense excitement prevails, and
further conflicts are feared. Almost
simultaneously with the reports of the
crofters riot comes tho information
that a renewal of tho anti-tithe riots in
Wales is imminent.
THK CROFTER TltOUDLE.
London-, Jan. 10—Tho riots in the
Highlands are claiming the earnest
attention of the government, it being
urged on nil hands to take prompt
stops to repress tho disorders while
iill'irding the means for the emigration
and settlement of the Crofters in the
Cnlonies. The Times declares that
the government must aid an effectual
scheme of colonization. Tho government is still waiting the reply of the
British Columbia government- to  tho
{imposition it mado respecting ihe
oall, Meanwhile, tho previous proposals for the settlements of tho Crofters iu the Northwest nre in abeyance.
The Highland, Lansdowne and Canadian Land C> nijianics all declaro that
they nre unable to advance any funds
to promote emigration until the Crofter Colony in the Northwest yields a
reasonable financial return.
AN AGREEMENT REACHED.
Shamokin, Pa., Jan. 10.—The Enterprise Coal Company and its miners have
reached an agreement, Tlie miners will
receive the eight per cent, advnnce over
§25 basis, and tho company agrees to use
the Pennsylvania Railroad engines in
hauling the coal, so that non-union men
will not handle tho product of the
mines.
MATTERS GETTING WORSE.
Tower Citv, IV, Jan, 10.— The
strikers at Brookside Colliery have considerably strengthened their position by
adding the colliery locomotive engineers
of sonic of the hoisting endues, and the
breaker engineers to tlieir number.
Scarcely any coal Is being shipped,oxcept
the Buckwheat coal from Stookbank.
It is reported that a special effort will
be made to get foreign labor to run this
colliery, as the coal is considered the
best iti the Schuylkill region.
THIS MORNING'S DKSFATCHKS.
RBFrSED THE ADVANCE.
Mount Carmei., Pa, .Inn. 11.— Oon-
grc*sman Scoi t's 800 miners refused
but night io rcsumo work at -I instead
of 8 per cent advance, pending tbo settlement by the Reading road with its
miners.
MORS GOOD  INDIANS.
Poplar River, Mont. Jan. 1*1.—
Epidemic has broken out amoiing tho
Indians at thia sgoncy. Tho doctors
pronounce it erystpi las and o lutugimm.
About twenty have dir-d ut Wolf point
and many are ilok tit this place, The
cause is closo couliucinciit and bad
von Illation.
I'El'EAT ITIITAIN
WiNNit'iai, Jan, 11.—A most important election was held yes'erday,
resulting in thu utterroiitinguf the government candidate. Duncan McArthur, who has been tho leading
Bplril in thu agitation fnr completing
tlio railway tu the bniiodnry, was tno
victorious candidate, Thero is no
longer any doubt about tho defeat nf
tho government when tbo Honao meets
to-morrow.

Washington, D. C.Jan. It—Chairman Springer, of the committoe on
Territories, has received a letter from
David Dudley Field urging him iu
ease any provision shall bo made for
the ndinilflioil of Washington Territory
into the union to have tho namo
changed. Ho suggests Tacoma in
place of Washington aud declares that
the latter is inadmissible on any
ground and "would make confusion
worse -confound."

were burned to the ground. Three
persons perished in tho flames. Numbers of the paupers, who were forced
to flee from the buildings, suffered
severely from exposure, having had no

A SWINDLER IN   THE TOILS,
Washington, D.C., Jun, 11.—U. S.
Marshal Franks, of San Francisco, ar*
rived in this city last evening, having
been summoned by Attorney-General
Garland. He is expected to leave today for Copenhagen, Denmark, to take

fraudulent land surveys in California.

months ago and traveled under the
name of Pomeroy. The government
cabled his description to all parts of
thu world, and when he reached Co*
penhagen he was recognized and arrested by the police. The Danish
government at once notified Secretary
Bayard and signified its willingness to
givo him up.

Wtdnesilaj Evening, Jan. II. 1888.
Particulttn of tbe wayoralty contest in tho oity of Toronto, now to
liomt, until one to supposii thnt it
w«« Et Very warmly-contested battle.
Oar readers already know that both
candidates professed to be in favor
Bf temperance) but it seenis that
there were some doubts as to tlio sincerity of Mr. Clarke's professions,
While there were none at all with
inspect to Mr. Rogers. Both are
very respectable men, however, and
not at all destitute of such qualities
as are necessary to make a good
chief magisirote for a jrn-eat city.
There is something very remarkable
in tho spirit and conduct of the
Rogers party when the result of the
contest became known. "Under such
circumstances the usual practice is
to put out the lights and go home
by such streets us are least frequented. But the Rogers party did
nothing of the sort. They assembled
in a public hall and indulgod in a
lot of speeches and a great deal of
enthusiasm, and expressed a determination not to let defeat discourage
them, but tokeop in view tlie chance
of winning- at the noxt election.
Ex Mayor Howland, who supported
Mr. Rogers, was there, and spoke
many words of encouragement to
Ihe assembled crowd. Sir. Rogers
was received with the wildest enthusiasm, und declared that he
would a thousand times rather be
defeated with the company ho was
in than be victorious with the other
crowd. It seems that the defeat of
Rogers was accomplished principally by the workingmen. The Clarke
party had successfully persuaded
theso men that Rogers, who is a coal
dealer, had been a party to the
raising of the price of coal—a charge
which Roger emphatically declared
to bo utterly without foundation.
It served its purpose, however, and
if ever the actual truth is known it
will be known too late. The liquor
interest went solid for Clarke, although ho declared himself opposed
to the saloon. When the Rogers
crowd had finished speechifying,
Ex-Mayor Howland proposed that
they should sing the Doxology,
•which they did with great enthusiasm and then departed. Those who
remember the incidents which occurred on the election of Mr. Howland last year may not have forgotten that on tho occasion of his triumph he mado a similar proposal.
In the hand of such men as these
the government of a city is safe.
There are many good men who believe that Mr. Clarko will not be
led into error by that portion of his
supporters which look to him for
the fulfilment of selfish expectations;
and it is a fact worthy of remark
that at least 20 out of the 3C aldermen are strong temperanco men.
Our wonderfully elastic local co-
temporary is evidently much embarrassed over provincial politics.
In his editoral article of this morning he goes for the provincial secretary in the usual orthodox style,
without waiting to consider the import of his statements at all. We
are told, for example, that "Mr.
Robson, in choosing his colleagues,
had too great regard for the C.P.R.
and Vancouver;" and the rest of the
article assumes that Mr. Robson
both formed the provincial cabinet
and has been running it. This is
entirely at variance with the organ's
previous attitude towards tho provincial Becretary, for ho has been represented as a man of no ability
whatever, capable of "stringing to-
gether a lot of words which had no
meaning," and altogether without
brains or influence. Our cotemporary then goes on to prove (so he
thinks) that the present government is (to use his own stereotyped
expression) "in extremis;" and his
proof consists in the declaration that
it is afraid to call the house together. "We have beside us at this
moment," says our cotemporary,
"the names of 14 members (a majority) who are pledged to vote
against the government." With
these 1-i members under his individual thumb, our cotemporary thinks
the way "to victory and to spoils"
is perfectly simple, for he intimates
that besides these I i there are "several" who are just waiting to jump
with the 11 just as soon as our co-
temporary's thumb is lifted! Under
such circumstances he has no difficulty in explaining why the house
has not been called together, for,
he lays, "they know that with the
meeting of the house their existence
comes to a close," This editorial
article was evidently written some
time ago. As long ago as Saturday
it was officially announced in Victoria that the house was called together for despatch of business on
the 27th inst, and the same announcement appeared in the Daily
Columbian of Monday. Indeed,
we should not wonder if it is the
very same article that appeared in
our enterprising cotemporary just
about a year ago, previous to the
meeting of the house, It may have
been limply revised ao as to give it
an appearance of freshness. The
■econd page of our co-temporary's
Issue of this morning says the gov-
eminent dare not call the houso together, while the third page declares
that the house has been called to
meet on the 27th inst., and this announcement, the organ says, has
taken everybody by »urprise.    No
doubt it greatly surprised our co-
temporary and his 14. Possibly the
14 believed tho thumb undor which
they had takon shelter would bo
able, by some magic, to transform
them into full-fledged ministers with
fat portfolios, but when it comes to
be known that the house is to meet
at so early a date, they may begin
to lose coniidenco. Our cotemporary had better keep these 14 woll
in hand. "There's many u slip,"
etc. Ho has regularly every mouth
prophesied the overthrow of tlio
provincial secretary; but instead
of going down, that gentleman seems
to be going up, and now he occupies
the highest place in the provincial
cabinet. It may bo the old story
of Hamuli and Mordecai, with our
local cotemporary in the garb of
Haman!

Proper Core of Brood Sows.
Our observation teaches us that half
the bad luck, so-called, with spring nigs
is bad management of brood sows. Tlie
cause of bad luck is allowing brood sows
to run with feeding cattle. In this way
they get too fat before service, and are
liable to be daniagediny being kicked or
run over or otherwise injured afterward.
Another cause is too high feeding with
corn. This is especially the ease with
thoroughbreds. A good many fanners
think nor hing is too good for a in ood sow
th.rt cost them $:'U or fi!5. They want to
keep tliem in show fix and give them
plenty ul corn, and the result is barrenness ur milk fever or some other trouide.
'iho better breed of pig the less it requires in the way of feed. Tho proper
way is to allow ihem to get, not poor tint
th n, before the time of service, and trie
more grass thoy oat and the less corn llio
betrer. IJerore sorvice give Ihem better
feed and have tliem growing and feeling
tir.-t r.ite. After thoy are safe iu pig,
gradually increase the feed and have
them in good condition beforo farrowing,
but ou grass or oats or bran rather than
on nn exclusive corn'diet. For the lirst
three days after farrowing feed little if
aiiythiug. A little warm water with
some bran in it or skim milk with it
quart of oats the second and third day is
all they need. After that you can feed
about as much as you like with a mixture of torn and oats, half-and-half, and
about as many pounds of oil-meal aa you
do corn, nnd corn and oata being ground
and then mixod with oil-meal, Study
nature in feeding. The brood sow that
goes otr in the brush near a spring or
creek and hides her nest comes home
about the third day and nearly always
with a full litter. She has more sense
than the owner who puts her up in a pen
and takes everybody that comes arouud
see his litter of pigs ami tempts
wilh corn tbrep,tinifs n .my. In
wants to be near water atid dfln.'s kc .1
down tho fever that is naturally uu tne
th.r.l day.
Wo have outlined in the above Iho
methods followed on our farms .or years,
nnl wo are entirely sulis.ied with our
success. Whenever jwe^ftWe 'failed, it
has beon by following some other plan.
We put out old brood sows off by themselves, give them good board shelter and
let them aleep on dirt floor, and feed
them as above.
Washing rrolfc Trees.
There are insects common to all trees,
and it is only by constant care that we
ran get satisfaction from our trees. On
the pear and apple there is a scale insect
which attaches itself to the bark and injures the trees if allowed to remain. It
Is known that any greasy matter is death
to insects. Thus there are many compounds of this naturalised for washing
trees. Kerosene oil for hard wood bas
been used with success by many persons, but it must not get on the foUage.
Ono form of wash is made by adding one
pound of whale oil soap to three gallons
of warm water, stirring well and applying
with a stiff broom or brush. The trunk
should be rubbed thoroughly and bard
to remove as much as possible of loose
bark, so that the liquid may reach every
part of the surface.
Another good wash Is * weak ljrs torn
wood ashes.
A third wash Is made by adding two
quarts of soft water to one gallon of oil
soap. Place these in ■ vassal over the
fire, the soap and water readily combine
by Stirling, and should be applied like
the Whale oil application. The best results are obtained by washing Uie tree
about three times during tbe season, applying the first in March or April, the
seeond in June, the laat in August. Tha
insects, as well aa moss, will be effectually removed, leaving the.bark in a healthy
condition.

Uat.ii.i-iurf .ii.iii, JlulrUcr. '
Of all the resins so abundantly yielded
by the sombre and luxuriant forests of
the tropics, caoutchouc is by far the
mnsti iportsnt; for so wonderfully is it
ad pted forthe needs nnd tis-sof ivili-
t " m that nothing can take its p aire.
1 i. rrront societies o' arts havo attempted
to increase tho worlds supply of In lia
rubber by offerhig grent rewards for n rw
entires of supply, but the world has still
to depend on caoutchouc, the n-iiive ror-
ests or which itpperrr to be nearly inex-.
It  tlrtil'lc.    CllirUt'-hOUC,   Usually  kn<r . II
as India rubber, Is a substnnce found in
the milky juices of a great variety of
tropical trees, the most remarkable being
the cnohucil, native to Brazil and Centra'.
Ainericn. Sometimes, in the more ligbt-
sone spaces of tho caoutchouc forests,
the traveler comes upon the camps of
tlm serin neiros, as tho India rubber
garherers nre called.
Yiio Mme nf operation is just at the ho-
pl'iiiirii! of ihe dry season. Holes are
olnri'.e 1 in the Imrk. ami tho in llty sap
is ir'ri'i' e I tliiuu.'li conduits of bum roe
iiiln cl y bowls., When these nre full, a
bund ree is lierl over llio worm I to ]rrr-
v -nt tire precious Slip from misting. After rr ml ri. I lit q'lil city bis been r-'rrtller-
ed lu iill n great bowl of turtle shell, t re
new o.iei-tiiuu of smoking the sap begins
witlio.it delay.
An crib n jnr, without bottom, and
wilh a narrow nock to servo as n chimney, is set over it fire of pal'ii nuts of a
peculiar variety. The smoko of theso
nuts .urnislioa the peeuliur oheinieiil ole-
rfietit needed, siiiro.l by no other fuel.
Tb ■ va|iour instantly coagulates them-
outelio ie sap until it resembles rich yellow cream. Travelers describe tlie onor-
nli 'ii, which is usually performed at
nr lit, as p'euliarly pietitres pie. Tho
so .i to depths oi the tropieal forest in
lb hack ground, lighted up by the glow
of .li' lln ire, tlie tawny Indian ben ling

t-o! '.'nil, ins clipper skin glistening with
tlio Lent, and brought out in clear reiief
t,y t'to lig.it of the tire, while he anxiously watches the process of coagulation—
tier pi lure as if ono wero viewing tlio

From his calabash tho seringneiro
pours a little of llie caoutcho'ic iinik on
a Unlit wooden shovel, distributing tho
viscid fluid deftly over tho surra ro, to
insure rt uniform action of the sino!ce.
Thrusting tho shovel into tlie thick vapour over llie nock of tlio jar, ho twirls
it w th jreeat rapidity till the milk con-
solr Intra and assumes tho whitish yellow Ijnrje which denotes the close ofthe
process. In this way lie puts layer on

o. the shovel reachos several inches in
thir'knoss, it is then cut off nnd suspended on a Iroe. When it feels the
oflecl of ibe snn, the wnter all evaporate;', nu I thi pores becoruo solid, wlulo
tire color changes to tho well known
dark brown of rubber, as it is exported.
Japanese Swords.
The swords made by the Japanese
prove, saya-a correspondent, thnt, with
ill its bo sted excellence of manufacture,
die Western World has still Something
to learn from the Ivist. Neither Sheliield
nor Birmingham, with all their skill, is
lble to turn out fl sword blade which
:an be compared witii tho wonderful
iwonls of Japan. For lin-ness of temper
uid keenness ol edge, they are une.pi lied
n the modern world, and ean s.arcelv
be matched by tho blades formerly
forged in Pntnnscus and Tole lo. A
comoron feat for a Japanese sol iier is to
cut a nig in two at a sin.de blow. nnd
bars o'f lead, and even of iron, h i e boon
divided by theso weapons without a
notch or imperfection being visili.tr on
the blade. While not possessing the
marvellous dexterity of Iho Sikh
swordsmen, the Japanese would be most
formidable adversaries in hand-to-luud
fighting. On tho occasion of the murder
of Kichflrdson and his party—a fate,
which according to the correspondent,
they brought on themselves—a horse's
hind I g was completely served from the
body by a stroke from ono ofthe terri do
two-handed swords. A sword of superior
cxr ellence is preserved as an heirloom
in the Satsttma family, nnd with this
blade a leaf floating o'u the stream lias
been cut in two by merely being allowed
to drift against its edge. The fact is the
Japanese understand the tempering of
sword blades better than any other
people.
Tho Barkers,
A certain circuit judge was always sure
of meeting somo cutting or sneering remarks from a self-conceited lawer when
ho came to a certain town in his rounds.
This was repeated one day at dinner,
when a gentleman present said.
".in lite, why don't you squelch that
fellow?"
The judge, dropping his knife and fork
and pacing his chin upon his hands and
his cl' oivs on the table, remarked:
"Up iu our town a widow-woman has
a (log that whenever the moon shines
goes out upon the stoop and barks, and
arks away at it all night."
Stopping short,  he quietly resumed
eating.   After waiting somo time be was
asked.
"WeU. .fudge, what of the dog and the
moon?''
"Ob, tht moon kept right on," he said.
A Un for Old Walla,
In the village of Meyrin in the canton
of iieneva, .Switzerland, some disused
wells, it is said, have been hermetically
sealed aud devoted to tho purpose of
serving as barometers to the people. In
this arrangement an orilice about one
in. li in diameter is made iu tbe cover of
tho well, by means of which tho internal
air is put in communication with the
external. When tho air pressure outside diminishes on tho approach of a
Btorin, the air In the well escapes and
blows a whistle in connection with tho
orifice, and in this simplo way notice of
a storm's approach Ib duly given to the
inhabitants. But if, on the contrary,
the pressure increases, a sound of a
different and well understood character
is produced by the entry of the air into
tbo well, and the probability of tine
weather is announced.
Fnnntng Honor/.
At a meeting of the Physiological Poo-sty of Herlln It was given as a fact that
when the bee has tilled his cell and has
completed the lid a drop of formic acid,
o■darned from the poison-bag connected
with the sting, is added to the honov by
perforating the lid with the sting. This
iorinic acid preserves honey and everv
other sugar solution from ferineniri'inn".
Most of the insects that have a stinging
apparatus similar to that of tho bee ere
col lectors and storers of honey, so the
sting has a double function—it is a
weapon and a pickle.

Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered, affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past winter, with muoh satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all tlie medicines which have
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst. Preceptress, Homo for Little
Wanderers, Doncaster, Md.
My children havo Leon peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
nnd any effectivo remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. Thia preparation relieves the
difficulty of brfiiUiiing and invariably
cureB tho complaint.—David G. Starka,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral
In my family for many years, and
havo found it especially valuable iu
Whooping Cough. Thia medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to tlm lungs, and quickly subdues anv tendency to Lung Complaint.
-,T. B. Wellington, Plainviilo, Mtoh.
I find no medicino so effectivo, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, oa Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. It saved the life of my
little boy, only nix months old, carrying
him safely through the worst case of
Whooping Conch I ever saw. —Jane

A Terrible Accident.
Tho Vancouver News today contains
an account of a gun accident which resulted in the death of ono man and
the serious wounding of another. It
appears thnt four young Indians were
tofng through ths woods near English
Bay. making for Jcr oho, and on tho
road found a rifle. Coming to a house
occupied by a man named Dnlglicsh
they required of the man's wifo if she
knew tho owner of th»gun. Mrs. Dalg-
lieah said itwasherhusbiiud'sandtaking
it from the Indians placed it in tho corner of tho room. Thu IndiatiB usked
food which was provided them and
they sat down to eat it. Mrs. Dalg*
loish took tho gun from tho corner intending tn put it away and while so
doing llio riflo wns accident ly discharged, tho bullet passing tlit*' ugh tho
head of one of tho Indian** and lodging
in the.back of another. Tho Indian
who was struck in tho hend died in
about 20 minutes, the othor, who wns
not seriously wounded, returnod to
Vancouver wliere Dr. Met iuigan dressed the wound.
An lee Breaker.
Dr. Kent, who hits given somo study
to mechanics, suggests that a very
simple contrivance might bo attached
to one of our river steamers by means
of which river ico could bo broken up
without difficulty. Ho proposes a
wooden shaft supported by two arms
extending on each Bide of the stoamer
to a distance of 10 or 12 fuot in front
Into the shaft arc to be fitted a number of heavy iron arms, liko sledges, at
intervals of a foot or two, and in spiral
linos. Tins shaft will bu made to revolve rapidly by means of a chain belt,
or othor contrivance, connected with
the steamer's engine. In revolving tho
iron arms or sledges would strike tho
ice with great force, breaking it into
small pieces and alio*ing tho 'toamor
to pass through without hindrance.
Through this channel the broken ice

The Leadership.
We understand thnt Hon. John
Robson will tako tho leadership of the
house in the absence of the attovnoy-
gmiei*al,.tho latter gentleman and his
colleagues havillgurgently asked him to
assume the position. The honorable
gent Ionian's skill as a debater, and his
intimate acquaintnee with every question in the provincial calendar, will
enable him to perform the onerous
duties of leader with exceptional credit to himself and general satisfaction
to tho parly. During the enforced
absence uf Premier Davie, tho Honorable Provincial Secretary has attended
tu the various offices of the leader, and
thero could have been no happier
selection made for tho coming session
than that ho should load tlio house.—

A. question of interest in tho Alaska
controversy relates to the probable
number of seals in and around Behring
Soa, A computation last spring by
Agent Neva gavo 0,557,750 as tho
total of breeding seals on tho two
islands of St. Paul and St. George.
Agent Tingle's report estimates this
number at fewer than 5,000,000. Tho
Commercial Company employs a licet
of four steamers and fifteen sailing
vessels in its operations, and has stations on tho Aleutian Isles ns well as ou
the mainland. It is charged that they
kill ovor 200.000 seals a year, or twice
ns many as tho lensc allows; but its official reports insists that only 104,820
woro killed for the year in procuring
its 100,000 skins. The highest reasonable estimates of skins taken by poachers during the year is 30,000.— Alas-

A Daring Robbery,
For some timo past petty robberies
havo beon perpetrated in different
parts of the city. Strung effort! were
made by the police to discover the
robbers, but owing to tho slimline****, of
the force and the largo extent of
ground thoy are obliged to cover it
was almost impossible to find any clue
to the evil doers. Last night a car at
tlie railway station was broken into
and a caso of whisky and a number of
other articles stolen therefrom. The
company employ a night watchman in
tho station yard, but he saw nothing
of what was going on and the robber
made good his escape with the booty.
This morning when tho broken car
was discovered tho police wero immediately notified and took action without
loss of timo. Chief of polico Devlin
lias had his eyo for somo timo past on
a man named Patrick Kane, a resident
of the swamp, who bears a very bad
character. Suspecting that Kane
might have been mixed up in the
affair tho chief went down to the
swamp and searched his cabin, which
resulted in a quantity of the whisky
being discovered and a number of
othor missing articles in the shape of
blankets, socks etc.. being brought to
light. Kane was arrested and is now
lodgod in the lockup. Howill he up for examination to-morrow morning. This
arrest is most fortunate and it is to bo
hoped wo havo heard tho last of tho
petty robberies which have proved of
so much annoyance lately.
G. A. Dixon, Frankville, Ont., says:—
"I was cured of chronic bronchitis, that
troubled me for seventeen years, by the
use of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil." See
that the signature of Northrop k Lyman
is ou the back of the wrapper, nnd you
will get the genuine Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil.

Nkw Yobk, Jan. fl.—Dr. MeGlyint,
In an address to the At.ti-l'overty Society Inst night, made a bitter attack
on tho pope. Among other things lio
said: "Who shall so fid-gut his manhood ns to offer to kiss Ins foot? Ho
could bo as good a popu walking down
Broadway with a stovepipe hat, instead of wearing a hat about five him-
died years >Ut of fashion. That figure that looks like an old woman was
piled high with flattory until it wns
made to think that it was holding tho
balance of power of the world. The
flattery has been piled on an inch
thick nil over that poor old sovonty-
Bix-year-old bug of bones. Poor,
absent-minded old man who is made
to think that ho is the greatest of pontiffs. Why is it that Ityly ib so bitter
against thu pope I Boaause he Ib in
politics. He is a more politician in
the lowest dense of that word, and all
bocauso of tho accursed clinging of tlio
pnpo to his accursed temporal throne."
