A Wunilfrful Preacher.
The Frenoh and Italian papers
urt* giving glowing accounts of the
immense crowds which lire being attracted daily to the Duouio nt Turin
by father Augustine, of Muntefel-
tro, a Franoisiiuh monk, whose extraordinary eloquence is said to be
equal to his humility and unaffected
piety. Many uubelievors are »t-
traetcd to the Cathedral. A letter,
says: "At the Duouio on Wednesday, four hours before the father ascended tho pulpit, all the chairs and
all the benches were occupied. The
precincts of tho vast ohuroh seemed
transformed into a sea of human
heads. The divine word coming
from the mouth of the humble
brother electrifies the congregation.
.Several times the sacred associations
of the piace were powerless to keep
back the applause, which broke
forth with irresistible force. At
Pisa the university closed two hours
before the sermon begun, and the
professors and students ran with one
accord to hear the illustrious Franciscan. On coming out of the church
the thousands of persons greeted him
with their cheers and huzzas. They
wished to carry him in triumph
through the Btreets. The railway
directors, in order to ineot the demands upon their traffic, had to organize on each day speoial trains
from Lucca and Leghorn, and from
several other neighboring towns and
villages. Strangore arrived by
thousands and all the hotels were
full." The father is 40 years of age;
his face is open and full of intelligence; in his eye burns the flame of
apostolic fire; when he preaches his
face is transformed—He seems like
an inspired and commanding prophet.
His subject is "Truth." and he has
exposed with withering sarcasm the
foibles and unrealities of society.—

The intelligence of animals, and
more particularly man's best Jour-
footed friend, the dog, has been the
subject of almost numberless stories
nnd legends, both ancient and modern; but it is an occurrence as rare
as it is wonderful, that a dog has
been brought into court, before judge
and jury, to give evidence in hie own
case, SJioh,a^e.„that <f .Burton
vs. Go-JhriagBf; roceurred in the
Hennepin county district court
laatey. Two years ago H. Burton,
of the Plymouth clothing house, lost
a valuable Gordon setter dog. He
was as intelligent as he was handsome, and Mrs. Burton had taught
him many entertaining littlo tricks,
A couple of weeks ago Mr. Burton
ran across Sport on thu street and
took bim home. At this juncture
Chris Goehringer, a Bridgo Square
saloon-keeper, appeared on the scene
and claimed tho dog as his own, alleging that ho had bought him two
years previously. A lawsuit was
tho result. Mr. Burton produced
witnesses to show that he had
owned the dog sinoo his puppyhood.
(loi'liringer brought in the person of
whom ho had purchased Sport, a
man of unblemished reputation, who
on his part produced witnesses equally as trustworthy as Mr. Burton's
to prove that he had owned the dog
as a puppy, and there appeared to
be a case of mistaken identity somewhere. Judgo and jury alike wero
in a terrible quandary. At this
juncturo Mr. Burton aaked tbe court
if he might be allowed to introduce
the evidence of the dog, No objections were made to this novel notion.
Mr. Burton, mindful of the accomplishments which his wife had
taught Sport in his youth, turned to
the dog and said in a careless tone
of voioe—" Oome Sport, go and shut
tho door." Without a moment's
hesitation tho intelligent creature
trotted over to the door, whicli
happened to bo ujar, shoved it shut,
and then trotted back to his master,
looking expectantly into his face.
The latter then took a bone out of
his pocket, and, laying it on tho floor
nt his feet, said: " Well, Sport, that
was well done, and now would you
like your dinner 1" Tho dog's head
nodded an emphatic affirmation, but
ho seemed to be in no hurry to take
the bone. " Do you!" said Mr. Burton, " but you must remember that
it is necessary for a good orthodox
dog to say graco before eating."
Upon tho word the dog dropped
down on his stomach, extended his
head along the floor, and reverently
covered his eyes with his paws. In
a moment Mr. Burton called out
" Anion," und Sport sprang to his
feet like a flash and seized the bone
without any more ceremony, crunching it between his jnws. Mr. Burton then hnd llio dog du his famous
"gallant" aot. In this Sport sat
upon his haunches with a hat upon
his   lifirul.      When asked how  ho
Children Cry ibr. Pitcher'-fCntorta
saluted a gentleman when meeting
him, he deftly touched the edge of
his hat, with his right paw;.but
when asked how he saluted a lady
under the same circumstances, he
brought up his paw and knocked the
hat otfhis head. All concerned were
perfectly satisfied, and the jury in a
few moments brought in a verdict
for Mr. BurtQi)ii*M*{ Sport followed
his triumphant master out of the
court-room.— Knglish Paper.

BROUGHT TO TIME.
San Fkancbco, April 16.—As a result of th. arrival nf the pioneer steamer Parthia of the Canadian Pacific line
yesterday, the Pacific Mail, the Occidental and Oriental and Ihe Canadian
Pacific companies have made a simultaneous reduction in the freight on

'arthia.
SUKFHISED NATIONALISTS.
Dublin, April 16. — Tho various
Natiunal League meetings held in
County Clare today in spite of the
government's proclamation, displayed
no noteworthy feature beyond the fact
that they were slimly attended. The
success of the New Ross meeting, however, has surprised Ihe Nationalists
greatly. They could not have expected
otherwise than that it would be proclaimed, and the fact that the police
and militray wen kept within their
bsrracka while the meeting proceeded
without molestation, has completely
mystified them as to Mr. Balfour's
present tactics.
NEARIDO THI BSD.
Bkmjn, Apl. 16.—A conference of
the emperor's doctors, which was held
last evening, resulted in a unanimous
decision that the fever and bronchitis
from which tho patient was suffering
has undergone no change. Dr. Mackenzie 'suggested that the presence of
an access in the vicinity of tho trachea
was the cause of the excessive fever
which had heretofore baffled the skill
ot the physicians to account for. This
morning Dr. Mackenzio expressed his
belief that tbe end wss nearing, and
upon imparting his fear to the empress
the latter sent an urgent summons to
the members of the royal and imperial
families to the bedside "of tho kaiser.
The Crown Prince William was the
first to arrivo, he having ridden on
horseback st top .peed from Berlin immediately upon receipt of the message llie Empress Augusta and the
other members uf the household quickly followed Princo William,und Prince
Bismiir.'k, the last to arrive, wus ut tho
bodsido within an hour. There is a
■narked increased expectoration of
bloody mucous from the emperor's
throat uud tho swelling is making unmistakable progress downward.

Tuesdar Evealat, April II. 1888.
An Injusl Inslminlloii.
A few days ago wo published a
brief extract from Ihe Chi rcli man's
Gazette referring to the now license
bill presented to tho provincial legislature by thn provincial secretary.
While- cordially endorsing that bill,
tho Gazette makes some observations
which should not pass without
notice, because we think they are
unjust, ungenerous and impolitic.
It may bo assumed that the editor
of tho Gazette is favorable to temperance reform, -inasmuch as ho
gives the new bill an unqualified
support, but in nlmost the sumo
breath he endeavors to throw doubt
upon the sincerity of the provincial
secretary in bringing forward that
reform measure. " We wish," says
tho Gazette, "wo could feel absolutely certain that it has not been proposed rather with a view of satisfying a certain section of the community than ns a bona fide endeavor
to deal with the liquor traffic. If
the measure should pass; we should
heartily congratulate ourselves and
the whole community; and we shall
see occasion to modify considerably
our estimate of the hon, proposer.
If it should fail, wo shall find it
difficult to convince ourselves that
the proposal had ever had serious
inteution." It is much to be regretted that an insinuation of this
kind should havo found expression
in the editorial colums of a periodical published in tho interest of religion and moral rofoi'iu, because
we believe it is entirely uncalled-for
by the circumstances, and a misrepresentation of the facts. The
license bill was very carefully prepared by tho joint efforts of the
temperance organizations of Victoria, and embodied such provisions
as were believed by them necessary
in view of the serious evils resulting
from tho traffic and the utter use-
lessness of the present law, Not
only did it receive " serious attention," but we may fairly assume that
it commended itself to a large number of tho leaders of the church of
which the Gazette is the provincial
organ; for nt the time it was being
prepared, temperance petitions bearing the sanction of high ecclesiastical dignataries of the Church, of
England in Victoria and Westminster were circulated throughout the
country That the bill was prepared in good faith and presented
in good faith we have the best
of reasons for believing. It wus
certainly a sweeping reform measure, and, in our judgment, it would
have been better to have introduced
o bill at the present time less
revolutionary in its character. Reforms, as a rule, are not completely
accomplished at a single step; and
we are of opinion that a liquor law
prohibiting Sunday traffic, curtailing
the houn during which bars could
be kept open during the night, preventing the issue of any new licenses
except on petition of two-thirds of
the residents where the proposed
license would be located, and embodying a few other safeguards,
would have been wiser under the
circumstances. But this is merely
a matter of opinion, and does not
touch the question raised by tbe
church paper. We have yet to discover any facts that would justify
the declaration that any one connected with tlie preparation or
presentation of the bill might justly
be suspected of insincerity, and we
think the Gazette will find some
difficulty in bringing forward reasonable proof to establish the position
it has (we charitably hope) taken
without mature consideration. It
has already been said that the bill
wu prepared by persons to whom
the task had been committed by the
temperance organizations of Viotoria,
whose sincerity there can be no
room to question. It was presented
to the house by the provincial sec
retary, who for some years has been
a zealous and consistent advocate of
temperance reform—both bj precept
and example. Has the Gazette any
facts to present in proof of his insincerity! The bill met with disaster, but we have abundant reasons
for believing that this fate was not
for a moment anticipated by any of
those who had interested themselves
in its success. It was only at the
last moment that the speaker of the
house discovered the constitutional
difficulties which made it necessary
for him to rule it out of order. We
hare said the course of the Gazette.
is both unjust and unpolitic. Its
nnjustness we have already shown;
and we think all temperance workers
will agree that it it impolitic publicly to question the sincerity of any
person prominently engaged in temperance reform unless the suspioion
oan bt shown to rest upon a very
tun .foundation. It is certainly
disheartening when one, who almost
tingle-handed has stood up in the
interest of temperance in the house,
finds hit motives and hit sincerity
called in question, without reason,
by a paper from which  he had
Late Canadian News.
Quebec, April 12.- A syndicate is

WiNNirEO, April 14.—According to

A lady from Syracuse writes: "For
about seven yeara before taking Northrop b Lyman's Vegotablo Discovory and
Dyspeptic Cure, I suffered from a complaint very prevalent with our sex. I
was unable to walk any distance or stand
on my feet for more than a few minutes
at a time without feeling exhausted, hut
now I am thankful to say I cun walk
two miles without feeling the loast inconvenience." For Female Complaints
it haa no equal.

Thero have leen vary nigblan 1
Marys but one oi them nil, as every! ody
knows, wns the pretty lassie, the sailor's
daughter of the-Flrtlrirf (.'lydr, who wos
early betrothed to the |ro-1 ' i.rns.
Mary Campbell is an instance of the
endnring fame a single short po -ri by a
gifted man may givo to a person obscurely born, and oth-rwise Irkcly to remain unknown. *-ho was oilly a Slrvant
girl, and she died youii'rT, Imt t'.n* Ihhm to

nnd it was on the hunks ol the Ayr that
they plighted their vows to each other;
und' it was thero she bade bim good-bye
before going home to Campbelltown,
across Ihe 1 ii'lh.
I turns ever loved his native river, but
he loved it more lor her sake, whom after
that day be never saw again.
To Mnry, at (umpbeTltown, he wrote
bis song, "My Highland Lassie, 0,"and
wlren discouraged at his ill success in
farming, nud by his family's misfortunes,
be decided to sail to Jamaica, ho sent
her auother:
"Will yo go lo the Indies, My Mary,
And leavo uuld Scotia's shore."   -,*. ■
fo the following autumn Maty accompanied her brother to Greenock, where
ho was to bo apprenticed to a ship
builder. Shu fell sick with a fever thore,
and died near the middle of October,
1780.■
The famous poem, through all the
country, hns kept her memory green,
and still preserves it so; and it was ber
association with bis name tbat prompted
the liertirtitul nir!!''..lo monument that still
beers her short and simple record.
Tbo lines "To Mary In Heaven" wore
penned one lovely evening in barvest
timo (the anniversary of her death), after
l'tirns bad heiome a celebrated man.
Tbe poet composed them while lying in
the open air in his farm-yard, gazing up
in the sky. __.
"Thon lingering star of lessening ray."
It is tot familiar to «ccd quotation.
Ilie niied.UUn Problem.
"I worked as a hired man for several
years, sometimes alone and sometimes
with three or four other, says a writer in
tho Hural Acre York:; "and my experience as a hired mnn convinced me that
tbo usual farm medio I of treating hired
men, that is taking th-m into the houso.
as members of the family, is.radically
wrong. And expcr'i-nco with hired men
since that timo has. only served to
strengthen that conviction.
"When all hired men aro provided
with nn outhouse whero they can sleep
mid live, ono which tlioy are required to
keep clean nnd in order, the same as
soldiers keep tlieir barracks, then the
average Innuendo wid be as near the

They should be provided with fnel and
lichts, pails, wash-bowls, mirror, comb,
etc., etc., so thoy can perform their
toilets, put on coats and come to meals
liko gentlemen. The agricultural and
other papers taken should be sont to
them, and they will be.eertain to read
them quite largely. The farmer should
givo tliom to uuderstmd by deeds, not
words, that ho is mindful of their health
and comfort, and he will be well repaid.
They should be required to put tbeir
washing out and their fcod-clothef should
be put out at the same time. Neither
should undor any circumstances, bo
washed by the farmer's wife or hired girl.
The cost of having their sheets and
pillowcases washed will bs trilling compared with the saving in work and time,"

The great feature of interest last
evening, apart from tho salvation
army parade, was tho chess contest
between Mr. Hogben, of Chilliwhack,

engaged the almost silent attention of
a large crowd of intoreated onlookora,
and lasted over an hour. "Scotty"
beat "Pat" in the last departure, and
the latter surrendered with true Irish
grace, but not ns a vanquished fue.
We hope Mr. Hogben will havo more
success in the next contest.

AlUonntalnoKioM!
The usually quiet littlo town of Hopo
is just now greatly excited over what
may be one of the most important discoveries ever made in this country. Ou
Tuesday last Mr. Geo. McCombe, nn
old miner, started out from Hope to
prospect a timber limit. He had not
proceeded far when ho happened to notice a good -look ing fragment of quartz
near the bottom of a gulch. Believing that the rock might bo auriferous,
he looked carefully ns he proceeded,
and his watchfulness was presently rewarded by more similar quartz. He
followed the traces along the ravine,
and finally discovered the source of
them—a mountain of quartz iu which
there is believed to be a fair per cen-
tage of gold 1 This is Hope Mountain,
a most picturesque elevation, which
forms a kind of background to that
charming and historic mining town.
Being within stone-throw of the town
and the Fraser River, thero is no obstacle in the way of economical mining; aud if the oro is found to contain
even ten or fifteen dollars to tho ton,
it will be a bonanza, for there is practically no end to tho supply. Several
claims have already been taken up,
and pieces of rock have been sont away
for careful analysts so us to determine
accurately the size of the fortunes of
the fortunate owners. It need not be
said that this discovery is likely to
prove u boom iu thu old mining town,
once famous as the centre of one of the
liveliest mining camps on the Pacific
coast. In tho early days the Fraser
River about Hope yielded millions of
gold, and it would not bo remarkable
if a connection should be established
between the rich crop of nuggets takeu
from the river banks and the auriferous mountain discovered on Tuesday.
We shall await further developments
with very great interest.
A perfectly sound body ami mind unimpaired aro possible only with pure
blood. Leading medical authorities in*
dorse Ayer's SarsapariUa as the best
blood purifying medicine in cxistcnue. It
vastly increases the working and productive powers of both hand and brain,
Dr. €1* Hamilton GrlRln.
Many of our readers will remember
a person who arrived in this city in November, 1886, claiming to be a member of the great''Imperial Staff of English, French and German Physicians,
Surgoons and Professors.'" He ranis-
terud at tlie Holbronk House as Dr. G.
Hamilton Gritlin, and was accompanied
by his wife. Tlio doctor had a tine
physique and a pleasant address. Hia
complextion was dark, indicating a
percentage of Negro blood. A large
number of circulars were issued announcing that tho great medical combination to which ho bul.mgect had determined to establish a permanent business in this province, the headquarters
of which would be nt Victoria. After
remaining here a few days, newspaper!
began coming from eastern Canada
with articles denouncing ns a fraud a
certain Dr. Grifiiu, whoso description
answered exactly to his own. He then
left, and hus probably passed out of
recollection. A few months ago a person whoso namo and description leave
no room to doubt that it is tho same
Griffin, turned up ut Nanaimo with
much pomp uud succeeded in persuading the people there that he was representative of influential capitalists in
Loudon, Eng. Having established a
claim to public consideration, he bonded the Cedar District coal mines for
three months on condition that nt tho
end of that time he would purchase
the lands at $90 uu acre, in the mean*
time a despatch arrived from Los Angeles, Cal., otKjuiring for a Dr. G. H.
Griffin who had got himself into trouble
there about various schemes, was arrested for ombezzleinent, aud skipped
out after securing bondsmen in tho sum
of 82,300. When last heard of, Griffin was lecturing in aid of the cathedral nt Victoria. Ho seems to be a person uf considerable resources, but is
apparently somewhat careless about
his mode of conducting business.
Mrs. Celesto Coon, Syracuse, N. Y,,
writes; "For years I could not cat many
kinds of food without producing a burning, excruciating pain in my stomach. I
took Parmelee's Pills according to directions under the head of <DysnepsiAor
Indigestion/ Ono box ontirefy cured
me. I can now cat anything I choose,
without distressing ine in tlie least."
These Pills do not cause pain or griping,
and should housed when a cathartic is
required.

Late Despatches.
A PROFOUND OAT).
London, April 10.-—Mr. Thomas
Power addressed a densely crowded
meeting at Liverpool, and in the course
of his remarks announced thu arrest uf
Mr. O'Brien in Ireland. Tho announcement created a terrible uproar, aud for
a timo it seemed as though the indignation of the crowd would culminate
in some serious act of disorder. Quiet
wbs finally restored, however, und Mr.
O'Connor resumed his speech, paying
his respects to Mr. Balfour iu scathing
terms. Among the epithets applied to
tho Irish secretary by the indignant
member of the Scotland division of
Liverpool was that of " profound and
unutterable cad."
