Freleellea la Germany.
A special correspondent of the
London Economist, writing from
Berlin, gives an interesting account
of the progress of the protectionist
movement in Germany, and of the
results whioh have followed the
adoption of the policy inaugurated
by Bisraarlc in 1877. Odd as it
may seem, that polioy was the outcome of a sudden influx of wealth
in the shape of the Trench war
indemnity. Prior to the war German industries had been making
comparatively slow but. steady progress. In order to compete successfully with English and French imports, the German .manufacturers
were compelled to devote as much
attention to the quality as to the
quantity of their goods, and thus to
bring their industries to as high a
state of perfection as possible. When
the French milliards began to pour
into the country, however, a new
state of affairs followed. Immense
sums of money were invested in
manufacturing, and production was
enormously increased. Thousands
of new industrial concerns were
created, with the result that when
the indemnity was spent, it became
apparent that there was a tremendous over-production.. The banks
found themselves in possession of
great quantities of shares and bonds
of industrial establishments which
were on the verge of bankruptcy.
Moreover, large numbers of men
and women who had been led to
forsake agricultural for industrial
pursuits were out of work and in a
starving condition. The situation
was a critical one, especially as Socialism was then beginning to make
itself felt as a power in tho land.
At this juncture Bismarck inaugurated his protectionist policy, and
succeeded in securing its adoption,
one reason of his success being that
many influential men who were at
heart opposed to protection aaw in
it a means of escape from their financial embarrassment. The agricultural classes, moreover, who had
no direct interest whatever in protection, and who constitute the bulk
ofthe Conservative party in Germany, committed the "stupendous
blunder" of allowing the Government to shape its policy in the interest of the industries alone. "Had
they, in 1878," we are told, "insisted on obtaining tariff protection
first for themselves, it is very likely
that they would have become sooner aware of its inefficiency, and
thus would not have been with the
majority of the German people."
They did not do so, however, but
allowed the industries to secure all
the protection they wanted, with
the result that the latter have been
combining amongst themselves in
the creation of monopolies, from
whioh the "agrarians" have been
the ohief sufferers. Public sentiment, however, ii beginning to
change, and, seeing this, the industries are endeavouring to quiet the
"agrarians" by promising them a
rise in the import duties on cereals,
in return for which they are expected to consent to an export bounty
on iron. This is the old story, with
whioh both Oanada and the United
States are now familiar, and it illustrates the dangerous tendency of
the protectionist policy the world
over. On this continent we have
learned how diffioult it is to keep
protective tariffs from rising. Some
interest is ever clamouring for increased protection on tho plea that,
it is placed at a disadvantage as
compared with others, and in the
effort to satisfy all, the tariff makers
are continually increasing the duties.
The result of suoh a polioy is well
shown in the Uuited States, where
the few have been enriched by the
unnecessary and unjust taxation of
the many; and an immense sum of
money, withdrawn from circulation,
is lying idle in the Treasury.—Mail.
Thirty million people crossed the
Brooklyn bridge this year and not
an accident happened. Good management. The men that jumped
off didn't count.
The big trees of California have
several rivals on the west coast of
Australia. The tallest of the California trees is 325 feet, but a tree
in Australia measures 600 feet to
the top.
The export season of Canadian
live stock, whioh has just closed,
was the greatest known, the total
number being over 65,000. In
sheep the number was only 35,000,
being the smallest on record since
1878.
Mr. Henry Marshall, Reeve of Dunn,
writes: "Some time ago I got a bottle of
Northrop b Lyman's Vegetable Discovery from Mr. Harrison, and I consider it
the very best medielno extant for Dyspepsia. "This medicine is making marvel-
lout curat in Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, .to., in purifying tho blood and restoring manhood to tall vigor.

1 TORONTO SENSATION.
Toronto, Dec. SO.—A case !s now
pending at Osgood Hail before tha
official referee, which will probably
prove the most sensational one tbat
hss been known here tor many yean.
The case is that of Monoghan vs. Mo-
noghan. Thajilaintiffis Miu Catherine MonoghaH; a young lady of good
appearance about 22 years old, andth.
defendant is her father, who ia an attache of Toronto post offioe. On
January 9.1887 Miu Monoghan's
mother died luring her an aatate
bringing her an annual inooma.
Her complaint is that her estate
was not properly administered
and that she wu the victim of a eon-
apiraey by whioh she waa detained ist
a lunatic asylum in Buffalo for two
weeks, when she wu discharged by
the visiting doctors tiftha institution.
In April she was staying at a New
York hotel with another Toronto lady
when a telegram from Toronto called
the latter home and Mr.  Monoghan
Erocesded to that city to bring haa*
isdsughter. This is uid to have
been part of the plot. Whan hlhsr
and daughter got to Buffalo they engaged rooms at a hotel and stopped
several hours waiting for tha through
train to Toronto. During ths afternoon they went out for a drive and
made a tour of the eity, stopping at a
large building, which they entered,
the young lady supposing they
going to visit it The plaoe wa
uylum where she wu detained

Columbian
^twetnt ago the air was
..edwitfc warlike rumors. Russia
was reported to be hurrying troops
with astonishing speed to points
along the frontier of Oermany and
Austria, and the tone of semi-official
journals at St Petersburg seemed to
indicate mischief. The Germans
and Austrians were fairly howling
at theae unmistakable evidences of
hostility, and the war departments
were making hurried preparations
for anything that might happen.
The stook market began to show
signs of disquiet in sympathy with
the oircurastances, and half the peoplo were just holding thoir breath
waiting for something to go oft*. But
it hasn't gone off at all. Russia
• explains that it was all a joke.
She didn't intend to disturb anybody, and the thing wasn't loaded
anyway. Then Germany said it
was no matter: sho never had
any doubt of Russia's peaceful intentions, and only hoped the cordial
relations existing between the two
countries would continue undisturbed. Then the Russian czar chuok-
led quietly in the seclusion of his
bomb-proof palace, and made a
mental note of the fact that with
all her vast resources and preparations, Germapy was neither ready
nor willing to light. Bismarck,
meanwhile, gets the German newspapers to say that the alarm was
quite premature; there was really no
serious cause for immediate disquiet;
the situation had been reported as
critical not because it was so, but
because there were certain measures
wanted by the military authorities
to which the German people would
probably not consent without some
special Btimulous. This is all right,
but we hope they will not do it
again. War is too serious a thing
to make sport of; and it is an old
and true saying that one might as
well be killed as frightened to death.
These old war horses may find lots
ef comfort in playing with weapons
they know to be harmless, but
whioh other people ♦ipposp to be
loaded. The incidents just transpired show how little j is sometimes
required to precipitate great conflicts. During the excitement, if
anybody had inadvertently fired a
blank cartridge, the whole of Europe would probably have jumped to
arms, and the din of awful battle
would have reached the ends of the
earth.
Fftth a communication whicli appeared in the Columbian yesterday
it will be seen that an effort is being
made to secure better communication between the North Arm settlement and Vancouver. At a meeting of the Vancouver city council
held a few days ago this question
was discussed, and it was stated by
Aid. Hamilton, the O.P.R. land
commissioner, that if the city would
build a bridge diver False Creek, and
the municipality of Richmond would
secure the completion of the road to
the delta lands, the railway company
would construct it through the railway lands. This proposition, he
said, would involve the expenditure
of about SJI0.000 by the railway
oompany. The construction of such
a road would undoubtedly be a great
advantage both to the people of
North Arm and Vancouver. The
principal market for the produce of
North Arm has hitherto been Westminster; but since Vancouver has
come to be a city of some importance, a large demand has sprung up
, in that direction. Westminster is
almost surrounded by agricultural
settlements. Tbe line farms of
Chilliwhack, Sumas, Mount Lehman, Alder Grove, Langley, Clover
Valley, Mud Bay, Ladners, Maple
Ridge, and North Arm, are all within euy reach of us, and most of
them are easy of access by the river.
The only agricultural district that is
nearer to Vancouver than to Westminster ia that of the North Ann,
•nditis quite natural, therefore,
that steps should be taken to bring
the two places into communication
with each other. Vancouver is now
a city of about 4,000 inhabitants,
and it has within itself absolutely
nothing in the shape of agricultural
"produce. It is of great importance
to the district that the great supplies necessary to meet the requirements of that eity should be obtained from local resources if possible.
In this way the money paid by the
consumer will be retained in the
oountry. It is important also to
'to the people of North Arm that
they should have a choice of markets, and to thia end we drew attention not long ago to the necessity
of having a wagon road constructed
from this city to the North Arm
■ettlament. The construction of
thia road would not involve a larger
nth than is within easy reach of
the resources of the government It
ia a work that haa been under dis-
cation and contemplation for many
years, and we think the time has
now come to have it carried out.
With a good road to Vancouver and
Weatminater, the people of the
Ntrth Arm will be able to reap the
Ml advantages of their splendid
Wwition and the magnificent lands
dl whioh they are the fortunate pos-

A Sluggish Liver
Causes the Stomach and Bowels to become disordered, and the wholo system
to suffer irom debility. In all sucb
cases Ayer's Fills give prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Fills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
ln their aotion, and thoir occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition.— Ralph woeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Fills.
Since that time I have never been without thorn. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and increase tho appetite, more surely than any other medicine.— Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass,
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayor's
Pills for Stomach ana Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia) for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Pills, taken In moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health,—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive, organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I havo used these
Pills in my family, for years, and they
never tall to give entire satisfaction. —

"You are ill, old man," said tho police
reporter to tho Old Importer last night,
alter casting several anxious glances toward tho veteran as lit bent over his
work.
"What makes you think so?" said tho
Old Reporter, with a tremble in his voice
whicli showed that he was touched by
bis ti-icnrl'a solicitude.
"Why, your lips are as blue as awhot-
stono.   You are goinrji to have a chili."
Tiio old man smiled a leeble smilo
and looked out of the window, but said
nothing.
"it is a bad sign when your lips get
blue," said the mortuary reporter, looking
Irom his work.
"Woll, I should say so," chimed in tho
marine reporter. "Better knock off and
go'homo.
"The veteran continued to gaze thoughtfully out of the window for somo moments as II he did not boar tho gentlo
words of his associates. At length ho
said, as if thinking aloud:
"They got ripo early this yoar — nover
knew 'em to como en co oarly botoro."
"What's that?" said tbo com-, ru.

"Ob, I mean elderberric-.," said Iho

the same color all the way through."
"Do you mean to say that you have
fallen so low as to eat elderberries?" exclaimed tbe railroad reporter in amazement and all ol the others seemed to bo
equally surprised and pained.
"Yes—1 have to eat 'em. All ot tho
boarders have to eat 'em. I can't understand the secret of that woman's power
over us. Wo submit like slaves to every
outrage and seem to be powerless to
make a stand for our rights aud our
manhood. Manhood I Bah: we haven't
any. Wo ate vassals—dogs, every ono.

I that call myself a man I" And the Old
-Reporter bowed his held upon tho tablo
while his ancient frame rockorl with the
tumult of his emotion.
"Wby don't you kill your landlady?"
suggested the police reporter, who is accustomed to tbo contemplation of deeds
ol blood.
"Alas! there isn't a man of us tbat has
the nerve to do it," replied the old man
with a deep sigh. "We eat elderberry
pie, and slewed elderberries, and elderberry jam, and elderberry pudding and
plain elderberries in every form that the
inneiiuity of woman can invent, aud not
ono of us raises bis bond in revolt. It
was the ssme last summer and the summer before and it will be so to the bitter
end.: <0b, no's I'm not going to have a

to kick himself in the small ol the back

It m«y not be generally known that
important mining operations are carried
on within tlie Arctic Circle. Cryolite la
brought from Greenland to Philadelphia
bv tbe ship-load to bo used in thu limning
of candles. At Alton, near the North
Cone in Flnmark, extensive copper
mines have been worked for a long time.
When it it remembered that most of
the work has to be done under ground,
aud that heat is whar* the workmen suffer most from, it becomes apparent at
one j that mines may be almost as profit-
nolo in those high latitudes as they
would be on onr coast The main thing
is to have communication open once a
year Tor bringing supplies .and .carrying
away the ores.

Tke Civic Elfellnns.
Very little public interest seems to
be felt in regard to the approaching
civic elections. The average citizen
appears to be perfectly indifferent ns
to who the coming councillors will bo,
and if there is going to be any excitement raised over the elections the
present state of feeling do not indicate it. A number of the old counoil
have fully determined not to try for
offico agsin; they will retire perfectly
satisfied with the honors already
achieved. A number of mimes are
spoken of as possible candidates for
the vaosneies, but up to tho presont
they have not made sny formal announcement of the fact.
Physicians prescribe Ayor's Saisaparil-
la incases of scrofula, and in every form
of chronic disease, because this medicine
is safer to take, and is moro highly concentrated than any other preparation. It
can always be depended upon as an effective blood purifier.
That Cow Again.
There is a ted haired cow, of medium size, with a sort of a Mobile, Alabama, . expression of countenance
which is allowed to roam the streets at
will and consequently is a source of
trouble and terror to overy householder in the city. During tho past summer it spent most of its spare timo in
destroying vegetable gardens and tramping down flower plots. Chewing up
a hammock or digesting a harness,
carelessly left within reach, was also
another favorite amusement of the do-
geaate animal. Many attempts were
made, forcible and otherwise, to bring
the snimal to a proper sense of its depravity, but to no purpose, all efforts
at regeneration proved useless and
finally the task was given up as hopeless. On one occasion when this cow,
after devastating the beautiful garden
of one of our most respected citizens,
was being coaxed along Roysl avenue
with a bludgeon, the noise awakened
another citizen who immodiatly sallied
forth and wentin chase. A mostexciting
and amusingthree banded race followed
which resulted in this errant animal
coming out, ns it always does,
ahead, Since vegetables have been
stowed away in the cellars and flowers
have been removered to winters quarters, life has been without pleasure to
"poor bossy," who has felt that since
the departure of summeralloarthly joys
have vanished. Latterly it haa taken
to promenading Columbia street, inspecting the displays of holiday pr rods
in the shop . windows. This
morning while making the usual
round'it stopped in front of James
Ellard & Co's. windows, tho attractive
dressing of which immediately caught
its eye. After gazing at the rich
goods for a few moments, and making
several remarks on tho vanity*'rof:■■,hi)*
man nature in wrapping themselves up
in suoh gorgeous apparel, il was about
to pass on, when, through the open
door, itespiodalargelotof artificial flowers, buttercups and daisies on the counter. Hesitation was never a part of this
animal's naturo, so without stopping to
think of the consequences in it walked,
intent ondevouring tho luscious looking
repast. Visitors to tho London Houso
are invariably well treated, but tho reception this cow met with was probably the warmest yet accorded. When
it is said the animal got oot ativ-c,
though unrecognizable, the visit can
be better imagined than described.
Bossy has moved up town again and
will retnaim in obscurity until the
"flowers bloom onco more."
Thomas Robinson, Farnham Centre,
P. Q., writes: "I have been atilicted
with rheumatism for the lost ton years,
and have tried many remedies without
any relief. I got a bottle of Dr. Tho-
mas' Eclectric Oil, and found it gave instant relief, and since then hare had no
attack.  I would recommend it to ail."

RUMORS OF WAH.
London, Dec. 29.—Rumors of war
and financial disaster circulated in the
stock exchange this afternoon, and
produced a genuine scaro among the
holders of foreign bonds. All the
rumors were chiefly directed towards
Russian military movements and n
panic io the St. Petersburg Bourse.
Russian bonds fell two per cent., and
other securities sustained a considerable decline in sympathy with the
Russians, The true excitement, how-
aver, was ssid at a later hour to be the
failure of a large bank in St. Petersburg, and the Russian Embassy was
beseiged by interested persons anxious
to learn the truth about it. The attaches profess to be ignorant of anything relating to suoh reports.
BRUTAL   OFFHrERS.
Losdon, Dec. 20.—Captain Paymaster and second mato Fisher of the
barque Campbell'on which has just ar-
rived at Sunderland ou a voyage from
San Francisco have been arrested on a
charge preferred by the crow. The
officers are charged with the grossest
cruelty toward the men, three of whom
it is claimed, jumped overboard to
escaped a beating and a fourth died of
his injuries, whilst a fifth was landed
in an almost dying condition. The
officers were remanded for a hearing.
The foreign office semiofficially announces that the presence of Lord
Randolph Churchill in St. Petersburg
is entirely without the knowledge of
the government.

Guy, of the Canadian PaoWo railway,
was buruod to death in bis house, north
of the C. P. R. track, last night. The
origin of the lire and the cause of
Guy's being burned ia a mystery.
Guy wss living alone in the houso, his
wife boing absent on a visit to her
parents at St. Vincent, and tho conjectural cause of Ilia death is that ho
was sleeping in bod when a lamp or
something; else on tho premises exploded, stunning him and salting fire
to the house. He afterwards partially
revived and attempted to make his escape by the window, but was overcome
by the smoke before he could do so and
thus burned to death.
