Ostrich Farming.
A late number ot tlie San Franoisco Bulletin contains some interesting facts respecting the California
ostrich form. Tha farm lies not
, very far from Anaheim. It consists of 640 acres of alkali soil, on
the edge of an alkali desert. In its
natural condition this soil will pro
duce noibing. Dr, Sketchloy, however, has succeeded in making it very
fertile. There is a well on the land,
with an abundant supply of water.
The ground waB ploughed up and
thoroughly flooded with water, which
wu allowed to stand for some days,
and then drained off In this way
a great deal of the alkali was taken
off with tbe water, and the land became fruitful. Dr. Sketohley began
bis ostrich farm planting on tie 12th
of April last, and has taken off the
ground four good crops of alfalfa.
There are '21 birds on the farm, and
since April 12th they have laid 270
eggs. The birds are not allowed to
hatch their own eggs. As setters
they are only a partial success, and
the hatching is done by artificial
incubators. So far no chickens have
been hatched on the farm, but tho
doctor was quite hopeful of ultimate
success. Dr. Sketchley has for several years been engaged in ostrich
farming in South Africa, where by
the same process as many as 88
chickens have been obtained from 90
eggs, He expects to have at least
600 chickens within a year. The
feathers of these chickens, when aix
months old, are worth $10 per bird.
When the birds reach the age of 3
or 4 years, they will yield $250
worth of feathers each per annum.
Birds live te a great age, some having reached -nearly 100 years, and
ago does not impair their value, A
pair of good birds 30 years old will
bring about $5,000. The ostriches
have many peculiarities. They are
exceedingly vicious, and always en
the lookout for an opportunity to inflict punishment on some one. Their
mode of attack is by kicking, and if
one is fairly struck by nn ostrich
the blow is almost sure to be fatal.
They kick forward, and will knock
tn inch board into splinters. Dr.
Sketchley declares that the popular
notion about an ostrich thrusting ita
head under cover and believing itself hidden is nonsense. An ostrioh
will run in a semi-circle, and will
sometimes make 40 miles at a
stretch. Tho only way to capture
them ia to run them down. Thia is
done by means of fresh horses which
are posted at convenient places on
the route which the bird takes. If
tbe bird has a fair chance, one horse
"can never overtake liim. ThB doctor says it ia also a mistake to sup.
pose that ostriches leave their eggs
in the sand to hatch. They sit on
their eggs, both male and females
taking turns. They are terrified at
the sight of a dog, and will run from
him if there is nny possibility of es-
cape. Tbe climatic conditions of
California are said to he very favorable to ostrich farming, and if tho
venture of Dr. Sketchley proves
successful others will doubtless go
into the business, If successful it
must be immensely profitable. Dr.
Sketchloy abandoned hia ostrich
farm iu South Africa on account of
the Boer war. He was a loyal Britain and entered into the combat.
But tho ostrich farm was ruined,
snd this is why the doctor determined to try the experiment in
Southern California.

NUMBER 36
Adroit smuggling.
So long as tariff exists, just ie bng
will men be found who will riskthe
chances of detection and punishneiit
for the great gain accruing to succesf ul
evasion of Custom officers. The latkt,
most adroit and successful aroittyce
of duty we havo noted is reported f»ra
Ogdensburg, N. Y., a city situate on
the St. Lawrence river near the northwestern extremity of that State.; The
duty on diamonds is 10 per cont. Carrier, or homing pigeons were imployed.
As is well known these birds fly high
and are therefore little exp-Med to the
shots of hunters. It is also Tell known
that, taken from the place there they
have been reared to a distance and let
free, tbey will return lo thehomo nest
as directly and as fast al possible.
Taking advantage of these Iraits some
adroit and astute evadors lof Uncle
Sam's Tariff conceived the nHAJdea
of transferring quantities of thsslrvnK
uable gems froin Oanad" 'wten the St.
Lawrence to Now Vork State, They
ehose a Bonded spot on the banks of
Beaver Greek, a tributary of Oswogat-
chie ritxir, erected dovecotes, built a
little jnbin and bred p;?eons, From
time to time these were taken across
intr Canada in coveys of half a dozen
or more. The large part of a turkey
-mill was filled with diamonds, and
tnen secured to a bird's leg by a strong
silken string. On being released the
pigeon at once flew home, where after
being relieved of its precious burden it
remained until again needed for another trip. The trick was discovered
by an accident. A boy shot one of the
pigeons, found the quill on its leg with
the diamonds and informed a Custom
officer at Ogdensburg. After muoh
search the home of the smugglers and
the birds was discovered. The men
however had grown suspicious and
fled. It is said that the business has
been. going on for two years, during
whioh timo about $800,000 worth of
diamonds have been smuggled across
the river, involving a profit to the contrabandists of 980,000, arid qf course a
like loss to the government. We have
read of an almost infinite variety of
methods employed in ovading Customs
regulations and duties but fail to remember one more ingenious and successful, or accompanied with su little
danger of loss or detection.
It Was Sent.
"There?" called out a woman who
was a passenger en a Bay City train
leaving Detroit a day or two ago, "I've
went and gone and loft my satchel in
the depot! Somebody call the conductor?''
A benevolent man, with a bald head
and double chin, volunteered his services, and after a time the couductor
was brought in.
"Can't you stop and run back?"
asked the woman,
"No, ma'm, but I'll telegraph to
have your baggage sent on. What is
it?"
"A satchel."
"Very well," he said as he began to
write. "It is an old satchel, with ono
handle off and the lock broken, of
course."
"Y-yes, sir, but it's none of your
business if it is! You don't buy mv
satchels!"
''No, ma'am—of course not. Let's
see. I'll telegraph them' to open it,
The first thing on top is a nightcap."
"S'posin' 'tis!", she blustered up.
"1 .guess there ia no law agin wearing
nightcaps 9"
"No, ma'am; and the next thing is
a pair of blaok woollen stockings,
which have been darned in the heels.
What next?"
"The next thing is that if any man
in this 'ere State of Miohigan dares to
open tbat satchel and go to pawing
over the contents I'll make n corpse of
him!" she exclaimed as she untied her
bonnet.
"But I must telegraph?"
"Then you coll it a black satchel
kinder busted in on one side aud kinder
busted all to Goshen by you railroad
wretches on both ends, and let it go at
that! I won't have it pawed over?"
"But, madam, you "
* "Not another word," she said, as her
spectacles danced on her nose. "Vo
as I tell you, and if they can't find it
I'll come back and stir things up and
bounce folks around till they think It's
a bad year for hurricanes. Just say a
busted black satchel, and add that if it
comus al
pulled oft'
this railroad flicker!"
The busted blaok satchel left on the
next train. —Detroit Free Press,

have been issued from the headquarters
ef the Northern Pacifio Railroad to
tho effect lhat all employees on trains
and at stations over the line must appear in uniform. A tailor is uow going
over the road taking measurements of
the employees fur Iheir now suits, who,
in order to expedite matters, sends the
following diHputch to all agents: "Take
off everything but your pantaloons and
shirt, and bo on the platform when the
train arrives, tu be measured for uniform," Arriving at mm nf the new
stations he jumped frum the train,
tape-lino iu hand, and shouted fer tho

announced that the lady was the agent
and he was her brother, and demanded
an explanation of his dispatch. Tho
tailor explained as bsst he could, i.nd
boarding the train telegraphed from
the next station: "How many agents
have you got that don't wear shirts
and pantaloons, and where are they
located? Answer quick."

The Standard Is Dumb.
The Viotoria Standard does not
seem at all disposed to discuss the
settlement bill with fairness.    Recently we referred to the advantages
whioh that bill has secured to the
province, nnd mentioned the failures
whioh had attended all previous attempts at   settlement.    We asked
the Standard to point out how a
bettor arrangement could have been
made.   The organ shirks this question entirely upon the absurd plea
that it Is not its business to instruct
the government 1    Of course this
must  be  accepted as a confession
that it has no policy to suggest.    It
is surely the duty of any public
journalist  to   make suggestions in
the interest of the country when it
is able to do so.    If the Standard
is aware that better terms could be
made with the Dominion than those
embodied in the settlement bill, and
refuses to state what these better
terms are, it is manifestly prepared
to sacrifice thu welfare of tho province for party considerations: if it
is not awaro of aiiy such terms it
should have the honesty to say so.
There are some facts whicli seem
to  us sufficient to justify the position taken by the Columbian on
this settlement question.    During
the   long    period   in   which   the
Standard's   political   friends   held
office   no  progress   whatever   was
made towurds a settlement of the
difficulties between the two govern
ments.   When the government enme
into the hands of the present min'
isters  they immediately set them
selves to accomplish  that in which
their    predecessors  foiled.      They
fonnd that compensation for delays
in  railway construction could not
be obtained, and that if n settlement
was   to ho brought  nbout within
reasonable time the hopo of compensation   must be abandoned.     The
federal authorities would not admit
responsibility   for delays, and the
only  way  in which compensation
could have been obtained would be
by compulsion.   In view of the position we occupied, and tho immense
loss we were suffering by having the
• lands locked up,   the  government
decided that it would be better to
abandon tho claim for compensation
and secure a settlement otherwise
favorable than to enter action against
the Dominion at great loss and expanse  to  the  province.      Acting
upon this principle they have agreed
to a basis of settlement which every
fair-minded person  will   say is of
great advantage to us.    The Dom
inion government were not bound
to take the dry-dock off onr hands;
but they agreed not only to do so
but to repay every dollar expended
on that foolish scheme by the province.   They agreed also to open the
railway lands to settlement, and to
see  that  the island railway   was
built.   Not until after this settlement had been virtually made did
the Standard discover that it was a
ruinous arrangement for the provinco,   Ws have asked it why tho
previous government did not make
a settlement more advantageous, if
it were possible to do so.    We have
asked it also what better arrangement it had to propose, bnt it makes
no reply.   But it persists in asserting  that  "a better bargain might
have resulted" if  tbe government
had possessed more brains snd made
greater efforts.   If the government
of whieh tho Standard was a sup.
porter hod brains, how does it happen
that they remained in office so many
years without accomplishing what
we are asked to believe was simplo
and easy!   Tho Standard agoin displays its want of honesty in making
the CoLiMBiAN say what it did not
say at all.   It is a poor cause that
must be sustained by misrepresentation.   The organ may consider such
tactics elever, but they are certainly
not honorable, and they are very
muoh calculated to make one look
with suspicion upon everything coming (rom the source from which they
emanate.
Temperance Reform.
The Liverpool Mercury of Sep.
tomber lst contains a full report of
Hr. John Bright's speech at Birm
ingham on the question of liquor
licenses, ud also an editorial on the
aamo subject, Tlie San Francisco
Bulletin of October 17th publishes
a long letter from its London correspondent devoted exclusively to
the same subject, Both in Britain
and on thia continent the question
of temperance reform has occupied
prominent place for many years,
and it seems to be increasing in interest as civilisation and Christianity inorease,   The London correspondent  of   tho Bulletin makes a
remark which contains a great deal
of truth, and   illustrates  to  some
extent a marked difference between
the United States and Great Britain in the mode of adjusting public
grievances.     He  admits that the
United States is far ahead of Britain in tomperanee leform, but points
out that in Britain the enforcement of
the regulations, governing the sale of
intoxicating  liquors  is very much
more perfect.    In his Birmingham
speech Mr. Bright makes some statements which show that England lus
yet   much   to learn, and that she
might with profit look to this continent for useful information.    He
frankly adinitB the great evils of the
liquor traffio, and the inadequacy of
the present licensing system.    At
present the licenses are grunted by
the magistrates, who have absolute
power to withhold or grant as they
Bee fit.   It has also been determined
through   the Darwen   case, notice
of which was taken in the Columbian some1 months  ago, that the
magistrates1 may refuse a renewal of
liconses whenever they choose to do
so.   Against  this arbitrary power
Mr.' Bright lifts his voice.   He declares  thai  it is contrary to the
spirit of justice to deprive a man of
a right which has beon given him
by   law, aid refuse compensation.
The law of (England does not recognize any claim whatever for vested
rights in connection with the liquor
traffic.  - Mr.   Bright does, and he
declares that this principle must be
recognized   by   the   national   law
makers.   In this respect we seo the
difference in public sentiment between   the   two   nations.     When
Great   Britain   determined   to get
rid of the slavery curse, she bought
ont all the slaves: the United States
simply declared the slaves free, and
offorcd   no compensation whatever
to the masters.    The circumstances
under    which    the   two   nations
achieved    emancipation   were,   of
course, very different, but the principle   was  different  also.   Wo do
not know of any case where compensation has been given ou this
continent because of the withdrawal
of a license.   The law provides fur
no such compensation.    The vendor
of liquors receives his license with a
full knowledge of   the conditions,
and he must take the risks involved.
Mr. Bright favors a gradual reduction in the number of licenses, and
compensation to those who aro cut
off.   He proposes that tho fees received  for  licenses  bo held as a
fund  out of  which compensation
could be made.   He thinks that the
system of granting licenses through
magistrates should be changed, and
that the license boards should be composed of a certain number of common councillors elected by the people,     In making  this suggestion
Mr. Bright shows how far behind
the  people of  England are.    For
many years the power of granting
licenses in this country has been
vested in  municipal councils, and
the  system   was found to work so
badly that the Ontario government
made a very sweeping change.   A
law was passed about five years ago
in Ontario taking the licensing power
out of  tbo hands ef municipalities
and placing it in the hands of com-
missioners appointed each year by
the government.  This plan is a vast
improvement on the one it succeeded.
It  was found that  under the old
system the whole municipal machinery fell under control of the liquor
dealers, whose interests  led them
to  use  every   possible  means  to
keep out of the councils all who
favored tomperanee   reform,    The
influence of publicans at election
times is undoubted, and it soon became  evident  that the system of
putting the control of the licenses
in the hnnds of the councils was a
complete failure.   And yet  this is
the   very   plan   proposed  by Mr.
Bright to-day, apparently in utter
ignorance that the experiment has
already been tried, and has failed.
The  Loudon correspondent of  the
Bulletin  says   that the laws regulating the salo of liquors in England
are   very   stringent, and they are
enforced with great firmness.   It is.
recognized   by the authorities that
a vendor  who knowingly violates
tho law  must be punished, and a
second offense almost certainly can
eels his license,   He ssys that convictions for violations of the license
law are very rare in England.   It
is the interest of license holders to
observe  the law.   Any breach of
it is recorded in the license register,
and   may be, nt the discretion of
the magistrates,  endorsed  on   the
license   itself.     Two such endorsements invariably cancel tho license
and disqualify the holder from en.
gaging in the business for 6 years.
The correspondent concludes: "The
fact is undeniable that the English
publicans, as a whole, show a great
respeot for the laws of the land.
Such a thing us out nnd out defiance of any statute is never attempted for a moment. The parliament
of Great Britain does not make laws
to be spat upon. Tho regard shown
for existing regulations is a sheet
anchor of hope for the future. Rapid
progress is being made. The next
few years will develop the most ad
vanced legislation; and tho cheering
thought to temperance people is
that the decree when once issued
will be carried into effect; for far
behind tbe United States as this
country is in some aspects of temperance reform, it cannot be denied
that in securing 'the enforcement of
laws regulating the traffic she is a
long distance in advance of us. The
liquor traffio in England is falling
off. The decrease in the revenue
last year, as compared with the year
before, was, on spirits and beer over
(11,000,000."

A REPORT THAT NEEDS CONFIRMATION.
Winnipeg, Oct. 30.—After the Canada Pacifio had laid the track to within
thirty-five miles or so of the summit of
the Selkirk range of the Rocky .Mountains it hns been discovered that it may
be impossible to cross via Kicking
Hone Pass. The engineers on tlie
work have gotten into a dispute. Some
claim that it is impossible to go that
way and advise crossing the range via
House Pass. In order to go into House
Pass it will be necessary to elevate
considerably and seven or eight miles
of mountain track already laid would
have to be lifted. The dispute became
so serious that the engineers wero recalled and tlie matter laid boforo the
general manager and other officials
when it was Been there was but little
prospect of an agreement among the
engineers and that it was best to stop
all work for the year. Between 4000
and 0000 workmen have been discharged, -The most efficient engineers will
be put to work at once to ascertain the
best route.
Reported Robbery of $3*800,
Amongst the passengers who arrived
from the mainland on Saturday last
was a Chinaman named Yu Tong, who
alleges that he brought down with hiin
the sum of $3,800 in gold dust enclosed
in sn oil-cloth sack. This, hu says, he
deposited with a Chinese merchant
named Kuong Tong Sing, who resides
on Cormorant street. Kuong admits
receiving the package and alleges that
he placed it on a shelf upstairs, intending afterwards to put it in hia strong
box. On proceeding to got the dust
with that object iu viow it was found
that it had "leaked out." Tho sock
was there with a hole cut in it but not
a color could bo found. Kuong s wife
states that Bhe saw a man leaving the
premises by the rear, at about 8 o'olock. But who the man wna or what
he was doing on tho premises she cannot explain. It is not a little strange
that if the ''robbery" was a genuine
affair tho police wore not at once communicated with. But no complaint
was lodged, no information laid, no
Solico officer sent for. and up lo a late
our lust evening the matter wns veiled
in mystery, The affair has a "fishy"
aspect and some, doubt exists as tu
whether the dust was really stolen or
diverted from its legitimate channel.—

THIRTV THOUSAND DOLLARS PLOUGHED UP.
The telegraph informs ub that un a
farm in Kansas, formerly occupied by
tho celebrated Bonder family, J. C.
Murphy on Wednesday ploughed up a
sealed can containing 930,000 in greenbacks and coin. This caused considerable excitement and other parties
axe tearing up the soil in nil directions,
hoping to make similar finds. This
revives a memory of tho Bendor horror, whioh has probably never been
surpasted in the criminal mnmls of ttio
country. The farm iu question was
occupied some years ago by the Bender
family, which consisted of four puraons
—old man Bender, his wife and a
grown-up son and daughter. It was
noticed thnt traveling strangers wero
disappearing nt a rapid rate, and (hey
could be traced as far ns tho Bender
farm and there wero lust sight of. This
led to nn investigation, and tho remains of about forty murdered victims were discovered iu various por
tioiiB of the fm in. Previous to this
discovery mother Bonder had died.
Old man Bender nnd his daughter,
Kate, it is said, learning that thtir
crimes were found out hy some means,
made their escape. Tno son was the
only one of the miscreants that waB
punished for 'his frightful crimes. It
is supposed tliat Kate Bender, who
was a very beautiful woman, was used
as a decoy and lured her intended victims to the farm house, where they
were robbed and murdered hy the nid
of other members of this blood thirsty
family. For several yeurs aftor the
escape of the two Bonders arrests continued to be made in various parts uf
the Union of parties suspected to be
thom, but they succeeded in eluding
justice. A rumor prevailed nt ono
time that Kate and. her fathor wove
captured nnd hanged by n mub a short
distance from tho farm, but this story
has never been fully verified.

Three new settlers came into Hall's
Prairie lately with their families. Mr.
D. W. Brown hns been living Uro for
0 years with a family of 9 children.
He has several times been promised
that a school would be established,
but these promises have so far been
unfilled. There is every reason to
believe, however, that his patience
will soon be rewarded.

Russia's Attitude.
DESIRES PEACE, WHILE PREPARING FOR WAR.
New York, Out. 21.—A cable special from London says: Since the
Czar's return tu St. Petersburg Russian
agentB have liecii- exciting thoir influ
ence on tho press and vepurta aro current that the Czar is ilusiruui of joining the AuBtro-Geiiiiau peace league.
These reports are' associated with the
making of arrangements for a Russian
external loan . of £14,000,000 with
Frankfort, Berlin and Amsterdam
bankers. Independent advices contradict tho reports of. both German and
Russian peace anus. The Cologne Gazette states that 160 regiments of Cos-
Backs of the Don are being placed on
a war footing. It is certain that orders have been given to restore Sobas-
topol immediately oa a first-class for-,
tress and that a standing garrison of
5,000 men is to be stationed thero.
Dock-yards capable of floating the
largest ironclads are to be built. Six
new gunboats and twelve sea-going
torpedo vessels are in course of construction for the Black sea fleet.
Forty Russian naval officers havo been
drafted to form a Bulgarian flotilla and
more officers will join the contingent.
There are now 250 commissioned officers in the army.
From Kanaka Creek.
(Correspondence of tbe Columbian.)
Kanaka Cheek, Oot. 22.—The action of the government in opening up
ronds through tho new settlements is
ono which must commend itself to all
who take nn interest in the progress of
tho country. It will also greatly assist the work of the immigration
agont whoso efforts to locate new-comers have hitherto been greatly impeded. Intending settlers have been unable to penetrate through tho thick
bush, and have sometimes turned their
backs upon the places indicated by the
agent, and in some cases have even
recrosBed the boundary line. When
roads have been opened up these difficulties ami drawbacks will disappear,
and those who tako up land will find
the conditions much more encouraging.
I notice that thore is a great deal of
talk About coal at Viotoria and on various parts of Vancouver Island. Why
not come to Kanaka Creek 1 On both'
branches thero is coal, and good coal
nt tbat. I hnvo heard of people who
cntiie hero looking for coal and. couldn't
find it. They must have been tike the
hog that couldn't Uud any water at the
sen, for any person may see large
blocks of coal sticking up in tho bed of
the stream, and seams by the dozen.
Now that tho water is low those who
want to see coul should como. I ain
informed that thero nre indications of
coal all the way up to Stavo River,
Concert, Ladner's landing.
{Reported for tbo Columbinn.)
Taking our place, with somo forty
others, on the steamer Adelaide at
Ewen's wharf, on Wednesday evoning
last, wo started at 6:30 for the scene
of festivity. At 7:50 our stoamer
camo alongside the Landing wharf and
we wero soon within the walls of tlio
"net Iioubo," wliich had been cleared,
seated and thoroughly decorated for
tlio occasion. The nets, lines, floats,
&o., were festooned along the beams
overhead, giving a very peculiar appearance to tne ceiling, Tho walls
nnd their monotony broken by wreaths
placed at intervals, while the stage was
made to represent a handsome parlor,
furnished with carpets, mats, stands,
lamps, easy chairs aiid piano, the walls
being hung with sevonu fino pictures
and exquisite!*/ wrought wreaths,
leaves and borries of whito and red,
tho maple leaf of autumnal tint being
prominent. At the sides of the stage
were Hags, one the-grand old Union
Jack ana the other the colors of tho
Delta Canning Co., supported respectively by the legends, "Welcomo!" and
"God Save tho Queon!" The concoii
was well attended and passed off vory
pleasantly. Tho chair was occupied
by the Rev. W. J. Dowler, B. A.,
who presided with grace and dignity.
The singing, by Miss Arthur and
Messrs. DeBeck, Pearson, Calbick and
Henderson, was excellent and enthusiastically encored. Miss Ladner's
piano solo was rendered in superior
stylo and tho violin nnd piano duets
by Mr, Yoomans und thu Missus Ladner wero exquisitely good, Tho readings by Messrs. Pago and Dickey were
tremendously applauded. Mr. Dickey
was compelled to respond to a most
persistent encore by giving a second
piece. During tho evening, thero wns
an intermission of ton minutes for mutual recognition, congmtulntions and
animated conversation, and nt tlio
closo of tho programme, aftor thanks
IircBented to tho various committees of
adios and gentlomen, who had so
kindly and successfully prepared tho
evening's entertainment, and, with
emphasis, to tho friends from New
Westminster, all adjourned to the
"cook house" whero an excellent nnd
abundant repast was furnished, undor
the presidency of Mcsdames Page,
Kirklnndand Ladner, ably assisted by
gentlemen, among whom wo noticed
Messrs. Lyon, Aduiv and Campbell.
Tho New Westminster contingent wero
»oon * 'all aboard" tho exoursion Bteam-
or and were greeted by round after
round of eheera by those on tho wharf
aa they moved off. All seemed to be
thoroughly pleased with the trip mid
the cordial manner in which thoy were
received by the peoplo of tho Landing.
The homeward journey was occupied
by singing, occomimnied by Mr. Yeo-
lnaus on Alio violin. Tho only casualties to report in connection with tho
occasion were the result of too great
politeness on tho part of somo of the
young gentlomen, ono of whom, giving
thu wholo crossing to a young lady,
liko a born hunter, "took tho ditch"
himself. In the othor instance tho
victim Burrondored tho narrow passage
on tho steamer to his girl, and, in attempting to break his way through tho
port sido of the cabin, lost his hat and
tho redness from his nose.
-   Chinese Complaints.
THE 0AU8E8 OF THE RECENT OUTBREAKS.
New York, Oct. 24.—Tho Herald's
Hongkong special jays: I have just re*
turned from Canton, where 1 had an
interesting interview with Vicercy
Chang Shu Shin. He received me in
tho audience chamber, pleasantly. He
recoived ine in the audience chamber,
ploasantly. He had heard interpreted
the interview with Li Hung Chang,
which was published in New York the
day after it occurred on tho other side
of the world. His desire, as well us
that of the other, officers of the Government, was to make the relations of
China with foreigners satisfactory aud
agreeable. When asked if he feared
an outbreak, ho Baid he would do all
in his power to suppress ono, but he
was greatly hampered by the action
taken in the cases of tho Hanon and
Hankow murders. The first caso was
that of an English Bubject, who killed
a boy and wounded a man and woman,
He was sentenced to to seven yoars'
imprisonment. The second case wai
that of a foreigner, who killed a man
and was removed beyond tho Chineso
waters without trial. By this tho Viceroy referred to tho cose at Sheiman on
the occasion of tho riot of tho 10th of
September, when a Portuguese sailor
of tho English steamer, Hankow,
caused the death of - a Chinaman, and
tho English Consul refused to arrest
him. The crowd wus quiet until the
steamer began to move from tho wharf
with tho accused on board; then, with
a sense of tho injustice of this course,
thoy set fire to the wharf and finally
attacked the Foreign Concession, and
burned and looted several buildings.
He said that if the English Consul had
mado tho arrest there would-liavo been
no riot. When asked what provisions
had boen made to pay the indemnities,
he said he thought that ho would ask
for the mediation or assistance of the
American Minister, who was expected
to arrive in Canton soon. Owing to
tho-excited feeling in Canton, it is contemplated to establish a foreign office
near tho Foreign Concession, so as to
transact consular business, and prevent
tho necessity of passing fthrough the
city and avoiding another outbreak,
and further indemnity chums, Tho
Viceroy said that in tho Hanon case
ho would make a- protest against the
inadequate punishment, and a similar
protest concerning the removal of accused in the Hankou affair, on the
ground that if foreigners assume tho
right of trial over their own subjects
committing a crimo against the Chinese, they should see a fair trial and
absolute justice. He hoped that I
would publish tlie story to tho world.

On the Congo villi Stanley.
STRANGE CUSTOMS OF EQUATORIAL AFRICA.
The apecial correspondent of the
London Telegraph writes of an incident among a strange tribe of savages
on the south bank of the Congo:—
The people here were handing round
Bait to one another in a large leaf.
They eat it alone, and with extraordinary gusto. One of these Bayansi
men that I had previously met nt
Msunt-a becamo bo affectionate after I
had givon him a few pinches of table
salt—to them nn indescribable delicacy—that ho implored mo to become
his "blond-brother."- I halMaughingly
consented, and he took his knife and
with the point of it gently scratched
my skin (on my fore-arm) as if he
woro going to vnccinato mo. When a
few drops of blood had appeared on
the scarified flesh ho greedily sucked
them, and then, repeating the samo
process on his own arm, invited me tn
apply my lips to the wound. I mado
a show of doing so, nnd the ceremony
was then concluded by our exchanging presents and mutual protestations
of eternal friendship. I havo novor
seon this blood-brother of mini* from
that day when I left bim smiling at
me as our canoes glided off from ttio
shore, nnd I confess I should bo curious to know whether hu would roinem-
bur me should wo over moot again.
Speaking of Stanley Pool, he says:
Wo rowed into the Pool towards thu
afternoon, and I was more struck with
its imposing aspect than on first viewing it. I can quite imagine that
Stanley, on descending tho Congo in
1877, must have thought himself entering here -oi some great lako or inland sea, as he saw the clear Horizon
of wotor expanding beforo hiin. The
vegetation that clothes the precipitous
shores on the south Bide of Stanley
Pool, near the ontrnnco from tho Upper River, is vone of tho most magnificent spectacles that the Congo
offers. Rising nearly perpendiculudy
from tho water, the forest climbs the
hillsid'js higher than the eye can reach,
without a Binglo break iu its luxuriance. Tho variety of colors, too, at
this Benson, when most of the
trees are in blossom, is particularly
striking. Oho tree-top will be coveted
with scarlet flowers scattered with a
liberal hand, another has pendulum
flowers of a pinky whito banning
gracefully by their Ion;; stalks nntitl
the Bombro masses of fnliuye, while
errant creepers tn oxubernut growth
trail their yellow blossoms over, tlie
victims they entwine. Thero is every
note struck in thu gamut nf green,
and the trees that form this mnsB of
foliage may. vary in tone from blue-
green to greenish-yellow, nnd from
greenish-White to russet-rod, and they
will differ equally in form and aspect,
Whilo somo are compactly mnsscd in
their loafnge, others grow erratically
and in disordered tufts. Beautiful
mimosas dominate thoir fellows, clothed
in folia«e of dark green velvet, drac-
conaa raise their spiky heads here and
there from out of the soft verdant
muss. The large fiat leaves of a fig
alternate with the feathery palm
fronds, while many stems are completely disguised by the network of
graceful creepers which mask them
like a vegetable cobweb. A climbing
pulm makes a sort of lattice work
fence, rising straight up from the
wnter's-edge, and seema effectually to
forbid trespassing in these fairy forests, while along tho river's brim lines
of whito lilies ata**d like sentinels to
soo tho barrier is not passed.
NEW8 FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Toronto, Oct. 19.—Sir John Mac-
doiuld has resigned the ministership
of tie Interior to becomo President of

Superintendence of Indian Affairs and

Sm.psoii lino, went ashore on the
North Beach, nbout ten miles above
Capo Hancock at threo o'olock thia

San'Fkancisco, Oct. 30.—Edward
Hanlan, champion oarsman, has telegraphed his acceptance of the invitation to take part in the boat races to
bo held at Vallejo on Thanksgiving
Day. Ho asked for a guarantee of six
hundred dollars, whieh was immediately deposited. Hanlan will row against
Austin Stevenson of Vallejo, the champion of tho Pacifio coast, for three

Paris, Oot. 30.—The Gaulois says
that in view of the contingency of war
botween Franco and China several
French ironclads have been ordered to
be put in readiness to reinforce the
French squadron in Chinese waters.
Paris, Oct". 30.—It is stated that
the French government in viow of the
warlike attitude of China, will ask the
chambers for a much larger credit for
the expenses of the expedition to Tonquin than was originally intended.
Even should China only remain on tho
defensive a larger reinforcement of
troops will be required in Tonquin,
The government does not expect defeat in the chambers on its Tonquin
policy.
Hongkong, Oct. 30.—War is generally expected, but it is thought that
thu fighting will be confined to Tonquin for some time. Hostilities will
eventually extend to China through
the French reverses in Tonquin, They
will bu fraught with serious results to
foreigners. Advices from tho interior
show that political excitement is

London, Oct. 31.—At eight o'cloek
last evoning a terrible explosion occurred near Praed street, in the underground station of the Metropolitan
railway. On the first alarm a strong
cordon of polico was summoned to preserve order and convey wounded
people to tho hospital. Passengers
on the train at the sceno of the
explosion say there was suddenly a
loud roport liko a- -cannon, then sudden darkness, the gas jots from foot
to roar of tho trains having been put
out. The glass was broken und
splinters of wood flow about the cars
cutting and wounding many passengers. Tho refreshment saloon was
wrecked and tho windows of the
other rooms were broken. About 30
persons wero injured, sonic fatally.
At tha samo time an'explosion took
placo on the underground railway between Charing Cross and Westminstor
stations, but little damage wns done;
It is believed theso explosions wure
caused by small glass balls iill.'d with
some highly explosive material, aud
that tho work was done by Fenians.

wero tho work of tho Fenian brotherhood, of whoso movements hu is apprized. Loudon would bu in nslies,
ho said, before long unless England
gavo up Ireland. New developments
might be expected any time for it was
now the purpose of thu brotherhood
to reduce England to submission.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(ContlDuotl.)
I had never heard turn speak so
strongly before, and I waa very sorry.
"Tie fault is your own," said Herwald, carelessly, "you have refused
tbe remedy,"
"Quixote," and Dudley waxed red
U fire. Herwald folded his hands
demurely.
"Pax, Pax."
"Not if you breathe another word.
Oome, now, let a fellow enjoy a
grumble quietly for once."
"Alas, alas! it is for mo to grumble,
not you rich busy creatures going
home to pleasant faces and loving
greetings; look at me!"
We did so, he waa no bad objeot to
regard, sitting there with tho morning
tun streaming full on his fair boyish
face, as he thoughtfully tilted his
spoon on his cup.
"Just as you are crossing the
threshold of Sunnyside -dear, bright,
happy Sunnyside—I shall bo sitting
down to my solitary dinner, staring
blankly at silver epergnos and curious
orchids instead of human faces; by
Jove, I don't think I can stand it tonight; Morrison's bland attentions
will drivo me wild; I'll go over to the
Willoughboys', and get up a lark with
the boys."
Dudley leaned his elbows on the
table, and looked long and earnestly
at his friend.
"My dear fellow, why not como
home with us? you are your own master, and have no one to dictate your
movements.    Bid Simpson pack your
Fnrtmanteau, there's ample time, and
11  telegraph  to  Louio  to  prepare
your room."
'Herwald smiled dubiously, aud
shook his head.
"Don't tempt me Dudoly, for, I don't
know how to refuse, but I cannot
come; I must not; our tenants Havo
been Badly neglected, and 1 havo work
enough to hut me to Christinas; only!
the workman is worthy of his reward,
and I could not enjoy my promised
holiday if I had uot buckled on my
harness and made a littlo fight before
the waning year draws quite to a
close. I have been but a sad idler
hitherto—nn idler, and a dreamer of
dreams, but I have determined to
make an ond of all that."
As he threw up his young head
with the quick impatient movement
peculiar to him, ho reminded mo of a
picture I had seen in my childhood of
Christian arming himself in the Palace
Beautiful.
"Promise me one thing, Nellie," ho
said, laying hU hand with his old familiar way on my arm, "'make mo one
solemn promise."
"Nay, I will hot pledge myself to
anything blindly: name your behest,
Sir Knight."
"Promise mo that nothing may
happen—aud who can tell what theso
months can bring forth?—nothing
shall prevent my coining to you nt
Christmas; remember I am your adopted brother, and am to be treated
aa auch, and tho new year must find
me at Sunnyside."
I promised gladly.
"And, Nellie, may I bring Allan?
I can't do without him, and he ia a
great admirer of yours,"
I hesitated confusedly.
"Don't think me unkind, dear Herwald, but Sunnyside is so different to
Hurst Hall, and I don't know whero
to put him."
"Not know where to put him! why,
you had two or threo unoccupied
rooma on the third floor; what's become of tho yellow garret, or Dusty
Dan as we called it?"
"Oh, I don't mean his Bleeping
quarters, wo have ample accommodation for that; but what am I to do
with his meals? He can't dine in the
kitchen, nor yet with us iu the dining-
room, and hardly with Lucy in the
nursery."
"Oh, I see," and Herwald set himself to consider gravely. "Why,
what's become of the Oak parlor,
where we learnt our lessons, mado
our feast suppers, and talked round
the Bre?"
I clapped my hands. "What a capital idea! I never thought of it, He
shall have the Oak parlor."
"And comfortable quarters, too
and, Nellie, one more thing—I may
bring my dogs?"
"Dogs! how many?"
"Only Leo. Max, and Sprite; may I
I?"
How could I refuse him, looking up
in my face with that coaxing smile? So
I cheerfully acquiesced, and asked
what more I could do for his pleasure.
"You must let me have my own
room. Don't shake your head, Nellie.   I won't sleep in any other."
"Please, Dudley, make him hoar
reason; I want him to have Bruce's;
it is larger, more comfortable, better
furnished, and everything."
"Oh, as to that, Mrs. Housekeeper,
we can manage either way; you know
we havo agreed to have a little renovating process at Sunnyside, new
drawing-room carpet, kc, and of
course we will du away with aU that
spare room rubbish."
"If you aro going to put yourself to
auy expense I won't; nnd as to turning Bruce out of his room, I should
have the nightmare every night I spent
in it. No, I'll have my own dear old
room looking over the orchard, with
its faded moreen hangings, and all-
do you know, I havo every article of
furniture iu it by heart?"
"I can hardly believe that,
"Can't you, old fellow? here, I will
ffive you a summary, gratis, for noth*
ng. First, it had green paneled walls,
very worn, I won't say dirty, and the
corners and edges partially peeled,
and pared by mischievous boy's hands,
yearning for its crisp brittleness; next,
it had a window-seat of some dull
grained color, and two corner cupboards painted mahogany, and piled
up with dusty hooks and parchment.
Tne bed and window curtains were
moreen, of a yellow green with knotted fringe; nnd there was a heavy
cumbrous sola nt tho foot of the bed,
covered with the samo, which creaked
when any ouo sat on it, and liad a
Holding nap, and three deop drawers,
alwaya full of string and paper."
"Oh, Herwald, how can you remember such trifles?"
"Trifles? can't I seo at thia minute
the unsightly patch ut the right-hand
side made by Dudley's muddy hoots,
when he lay on it, nnd talked tu mu
after our .twelve miles' walk to Fnni-
ham Hollow; and let ine see, what
eomes next? oh, tliere was a spindle
legged' table, and a high-backed chair
covered with eeedy velvet, and a great
black wardrobe, almost touching the
ceiling. Just over the mantel-shelf,
George the Third simpered in his coronation robes; I remember that, be-
cauae Bruce and I used to shy blotting-
paper pellets at him, and try whieh
should hit him in the note; and a
heart-rending   picture   of   Nelson's
death, over the wash-stand, with a
pleasing vis-a-vis in Gainsborough's
'Blue Boy.' I think that's all, if I
mention the two tall china pots of rose
pourri, and the shell-patterned quilt,
and tho beautiful linen sheets, smelling so sweetly of lavender,"
I think he deserves liis room after
this, Nell."
Our discussion was ended by Allan
abruptly entering.
"I And sir," he said, addressing Dudley, "that the trains for thii month
are altered, and I havo been obliged
to order the carriage an hour earlier,"
"An hour earlier! then, my good
child, you have only time to tie on
your bonnet and Kill's."
"All right," answered Herwald,
"don't flurry her; go quietly up-stairs,
I'll attend everything, Bill in tho bargain."
In three-quarters of an hour from
that time we were standing in the
shabby little station of Whalley, exchanging the last greetings and inevitable good-byos.
"Kiss Uncle Herry for the last
timo; a good one—that's right; and
now Gud bless you, Nellie; you hardly
know what good you hare done me,
perhaps some day you will, Good-bye,
old fellow; no, I won't bo thanked.
Confound your soft speeches—no, I
did .not mean that; Gcd bless you all;"
and ho wrung Dudley's hand and
walked away to whero Allan was standing with tho patient dogs.
Tho train moved slowly along the
platform, the hounds panted aud
strained in tho leash, Allan put up a
military salute, and Herwald waved
his straw hat, and in anothor minute
wo were stanming away for the south,
aud our happy visit already became a
thing of the past.
'udloy, Dudley," lisped Rill, from
her Beat on my knee. Dudley, whose
face was settling into gravity, turned
towards his baby sister with a smile.
"Uncle Herry sends you thiB,"'at
the same time dropping from her let
ringers something . that lay sparkling
and blazing on the carriage very like
a ray of light., Dudley picked it up
eagerly and placed it on his finger; it
was the magnificent diamond ring that
Horwald always-wore, and that we had
once innocently admired.
'There," he said, stretching it out
for mo tn soe; 'lit hardly becomes my
hard-working brown hand, aftor his
slender white ode. What do you say,
Nell?"
"That yours is well-shaped and gentlemanly, and that I liko it ten times
better than his which is characterised
in my mind by a certain languor, I
will not say effeminacy; I don't caro
for white-handed men. But surely,
Dudley, you do uot mean to accept
anything so costly? it ia a princely
gift."
"It is, and worthy of a princely
heart; Nell"—and a rare happy smilo
played round his mouth as he spoke—
"I dare not refuse this; I would not
so wrong tiis generous nature; Heaven
knows I havo refused enough already."
My eyes questioned him; ho hesitated a moment, then continued—
"Well, I did not moan to betray
him, but I suppose iny sister-friend
is to be trusted. My dear, you cannot imagine what Herwald has beon
urging on me day by day; truly, if I
had chosen, 'the good of all tho land
of Egypt' might have been mine; I
had but to admire to havo it instantly
offered me. One day it was a picture
from the library, any I might choose,
with the exception of the Guido and
his mother's portrait; then a brace of
silver-mounted pistols worth their
weight in gold, a hunter valued at two
hundred guineas, and lastly " here
Dudley colored up, so that I waa
afraid he was uot going to tell me;
lastly, Nellie, he earnestly besought
mo to accept a large sum of money; I
won't tell you tho amount, but onough
to settle me handsomely in any profession or business I might choose,
and sell out my share of the factory
to Bruce—which he will have is in-
juring my health. We liad our first
quarrel about it. I flatly refused to
take a penny at his hands, and he
stormed up and down the library,
carrying his head like a young king,
and confounding my independence,
pride, and want of friendship. It was
a tong time before I could calm him
down at all, he was so excited. Don't
you call that worthy of Quixote?"
"Give him a better name than that,
Dudley!"
"Well, when I had made him understand that I would be beholden to no
man, not even to my own brother for
what my two handa could bring me,
ho'shifted his ground, changed his
tactics, and then and there, in perfect good faith, propound the strangest
proposition that could ever come from
a young man of three and-twenty.
He told mo with sad, serious eyes,
that he should never marry, and
prayed me if I loved him to let him
have one of our boys to adopt and
educate nnd make his heir, and he
fixed on Charlie."
I cried out in sudden pain, "Oh,
my dear, don't think of it,"
"We could not spare one of our
children, could we, Noill least of all
our pretty loving Charlie; it was not
to be considered for a moment. So I
just walked up to him, chafing on his
own rug like a young lion, and put
my hands on his shoulders, and said,
'Quixote, you are tho most generous
fellow breathing, but I wero worse
than a fool or knave if I wore to accept this ut your hand. Ten years
hence, when you havo lived a littlo
longer in tho world, and learnt more
of its wisdom, you may enter again
ou this subject if you choose, but till
thon I will not entertain such a pro-
posterous notion for a moment. And,
mark my words, Herwald, for all your
morbid and visionary ideas, I predict
that long beforo the time I namo,
your own son and rightful heir shall
bear witness to tho justice of my
nv/tivaa, and shall strengthen your
hands nnd heart in the hall of your
fathers.'"
