SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Electric slaughtering of cattle has
proven successful in St. Petersbuug,
dentil being instantaneous.
The scent of bloodhounds is dull
compared with that of certain male
moths. Mr. C. H. Piesse, in a late
work, states that if a newly emerged female Saturnia euopini is placed
iu a closed box, the males will come
from nearly a mile away, though
hills and buildings intervene, and
have even found their way down a
chimney to the object of their
search.
A New Law.—In recent experiments alloys have been formed by
pressure, but Mr. Wm. Hallock, ef
the IT. S. Geological Survey, finds
thut alloys may be' produced from
tlieir powdered constituents, without pressure, at a temperature above
the melting point of the alloy, but
below that of the constituents, the
molecules simply being allowed to
lie in contact. In this curious discovery he claims a new law of physics, which he proposes toon to verify
further.
Gkeat Rehiactohs. — Of the
world's refracting telescopes nine
have apertures exceeding twenty
inches, viz.: Lick Observatory, Oal.,
thirty-six iucbes; Fulkova, Russia,
thirty inches; Yale College, twenty-
eight; Littrow, Vienna, twenty-
seven; University of Virginia,
twenty-six; Gateshead, Eng., twenty
live; Princeton, N. J., twenty-three;
and Buckingham, London, Eng,,
twenty-one, Six of these instrument!
are the work of the American firm
of Alvan Glark b Som.
Electric Power in Switzerland.—Two electric motors at Solo-
thurn, Switzerland, are driven by a
current generated five miles sway,
where two dynamos reeeive thirty
horse power of energy from a waterfall. Tests of the efficiency of the
system were made last Ootober, and
the report of the committee of eminent experts has lately been published, showing that, with both generators and both motors running, tlie
Ices of power in transmission was
only about twenty-five per cent.
With one generator and one motor,
the loss was thirty-two per cent.
Coffee in Java.—Disease of the
coffee-plant caused many successive
failures of the crops in Ceylon, ruining many planters and producing
great distress, and ultimately led to
the growing of tea in place of coffee.
A liko revolution in planting may
have been averted in Java by a recent timely discovery. Sr. Burck,
of the Botanic Gardens at Buiten-
zorg, has found that an attenuated
solution of chloride of iron prevents
the disease when applied to the under side of the leaves, while touching with strong sulphuric acid kills
the germs in the spots that may be
seen on the plants already attacked.
These specifics will be somewhat ex
pensive, but, if successful, will prove
an inestimable boon to Java planters.
Uninplamable Wood.—At the
instance of the Belgian Minister of
publio works, Messrs. Boudin and
Donny have investigated the subject of rendering wood fire-proof.
They report that the resistance of
wood to heat may be considerably
increased, though absolute incombustibility cannot be secured. The resisting materiul must take the form
of an injection into the fibers of the
wood or of a coating, and it must be
not too expensive, non-corrosive,
speedy in becoming fixed, easily applied, neat and unalterable. An in
jection of a concentrated solution of
phosphate of ammonia is recommended as the best treatment for small
pieces of wood; but a more generally
available plan is coating with cyanide of potassium or asbestos paint.
Electrical Measures. — Electricity is no longer used in a haphazard way, as it was a fow years ago,
but it is accurately measured out
for the work required of it, its quantities, according to Prof. Wm. A.
Anthony, being comparable to those
of more ponderable gas, oil, or water.
Its quantity, measured in units called coulombs, may be considered as
analogous to pounds of a gas or
liquid; potential, measured in volts,
analogous to pounds per square inch
of fluid pressure; capacity, measured
in farads, analogous to cubic feet of
a vessel for holding fluids; while the
strength of current, measured in
amperes, finds no close analogue in
fluid measurements, though this is
[icilnrprr the most important of all,
lind furnishes the fundamental unit
rrf the whole system. Another very
important quantity is the resistance
of bodies to the flow of electricity,
which mny Ire compared, qualitatively, to the frictional resistance
which fluids cxperieuce in flowing
through pipes, aud is measured in
ohms,

Berlin, March 20.—The Emperor
Frederick is luffering greatly from
fatigue and exhaustion; he hu overtaxed hit strength ever since hi. return to Berlin and especially did'so on
the day of his father's funeral. His
doctors urge the necessity of his taking
absolute rest from state matters, and
advise outdoor exercise at Weisbaden,
for which place he will probably leave
within a fortnight.
WANTED A PEEBAOE.
London, Mar. 20.—The statement
published this morning that Lord Salisbury offered to confer a dignity upon
Mr. Chamberlain, which the latter refused, tells only half the story. It is
true that the offer was made, and also
that it was refused, bat not for the
reason implied, thlt Mr. Chamberlain
was too modest to accept the honor.
The fact is that the premier offered
the Birmingham statesman a baronetcy,
which Chamberlain declined because
he didn't think it sufficient to requite
the services he hsd performed.

FRIGHTENED OF THE ESOUIMA F.T STATION.
Washinoton, March 21.—In reference to the resolution presented in the
senate a few days ago by Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, providing for the appointment of a commission to be composed of three competent naval officers,
whoso duty it should he to make a
careful examination of the north Pacific coast and select a site for a naval
station, Porter, fint admiral of ths
navy, has written a letter to Senator
Mitchell indorsing the proposition to
establish a strong and complete navy
yard and station at Port Towusend, on
Puget Sound. "The British, who are
quick to improve important positions,"
he writes, "have of lato years given
much attention* to their naval eatab
lishment at Esquimalt, on Vancoursr
Island. The value of this station has
been muoh enhanced by the construction of the Canadian Pacific railway.
Every large gun that has heen sent
sent from England for the heavy fortifications now being built, have been
transported over this road, All stores,
implements of war, machinery, in fact,
everything wanted for a navy are no
longer shipped around Cape Bom, but
are transmitted via tbe Canadian Paoific. This gives Great Britain a vast
preponderance along the whole lino of
our northwestern possessions, and
command of the Straits of Fuca, Gulf
ot Georgia, Puget Sr.untt, Admiralty
Inlet and Hood's Canal, placing at their
mercy all that msgniucent chain of
islands, inlets, bays aud riven for
whicli this region is so famous. Here
we permit a great and grasping rival to
establish a powerful naval station right
between ns and our possessions in
Aluska without taking irnv steps ourselves in tbe Bruno direction. Alaska
cannot depend for protection upon a
navy yard ns far distant as that st
Mare Isluul. Indoed, our whole coast
from Han Diego to Behring Straits
may be considered ns wholly unprotected." The admiral believes thnt ns
a strategic pint a navy yard nt Puget
Sound would be more valuable than
the old one at Mare* Island navy yard.
This is an absolute necessity if we wish
to maintain our position as a naval
power er show any disposition lo defend our territory against encroachments. The secretary of the navy,
whilo approving of the manner in
which Ihe work is to be done, gives
little encouragement to it.

WMatsdv Evening, March Jl, ISSS.
Blizzards and IillzKards.
The snowstorm which occurred
last week along the northeast part
of this continent seems to hove been
one of tho severest and most extensive ever known. At Quebec, Mon-
real, Ottawa, Kingston, and along
the 0. P. R. as far west ns Port
Arthur, thii storm raged furiously
for days. In some places large quantities of snow fell; in others the fall
was light. At Quebec the wind
blew with an average velocity of 71
miles for a whole hour, and produced
considerable devastation. On the
north of Lake Superior the 0. P. It.
was blocked for several days. But tho
wont of the storm seems to have
struck Kew York and the Kew
England states. With the thermometer st 5 above zero and the wind
blowing 50 miles an hour in the
city of New York, one need not be
surprised to loom that the devastation was appalling and the loss of
life considerable. The official record
shows that two feet of snow fell in
the oity during the storm, and the
drift was such as to block up the
streets and produce an almost complete suspension of business. Kew
York depends largely on the railways
for its daily supplies. For days the
roads were blocked in all directions,
and there was much suffering in
consequence of the lack of provisions snd coal, East River was so
full of ice that the ferries were compelled to lay up, and all street cars
in both Kew York and Brooklyn
had to stop. It is already known
that over 30 persons lost their lives
in this remarkable storm, and the
monetary loss is placed as high as
$30,000,000. When reports of the
catastrophe reached the west, it was
deemed a fine stroke of policy for
Dakota to open a relief fund for "the
blizzard-swept Atlantic coast."
Hitherto Dakota has been described
as the home of the blizzard, and
Kew York papers havo not lost
many opportunities for advertising
the fact. But the people of Dakota
have not been permitted long to enjoy their revenge, for our despatches
yesterday intimated that another
blizzard was at that very time playing about the state! The eccentricities of the weather are beyond explanation ; but while we read of
such disagreeable, experiences in the
east, there ought to be a perpetual
smile on-the faces of all British Columbians. The Pacific aoast without doubt can double discount the
rest of the continent in the matter
of climate.
Commercial Union.
The willingness of the United
States congress to enter into a
scheme of commercial union with
Oanada is »fact of considerable importance. It was hardly expected
that this scheme would have been
received so cordially in that quarter.
The principle of protection has for
many yean reigned supreme in the
United States, After the war it
became absolutely necessary to im-
pwe heavy taxes so as to put the
nation on a sound financial footing.
When the tariff framed for that
purpose had been in operation a few
yean, it occurred to certain manufacture™ that under its protection
they might combine to enrich themselves at the expense of the people.
Rings and trusts and other combinations wen the result, aud so many
people of influence were made to
participate in the enormous profits
that the work of reform seemed almost hopeless. When the oivil war
began the millionaires of the United
States might be counted on one's
fingers, but since high tariff doctrines began to prevail, the wealth
of tbe country has found its way into
the hands of a comparatively fow.
Millionaires may now be counted by
the hundred, From the favorable
reception with which the tariff reform bill has met in congress, we
an inclined to believe that the day
is not {sr off when better counsels
trill prevail. There are many persons
who, while they believe that com
menial union would be an excellent
thing for Oanada, resist it under the
plea that it would be an act of disloyalty to Great Britain. But it is
only taking a step further than we
have already taken. Thero wns a
time when Canada hod a doublo-
barreled tariff, one for goods imported from the United States, and another for British' goods. But the
present tariff gives no advantage to
the British exporter: he is met with
precisely the same duties as the exporter irom the United States. If
it was not considered disloyal lo readjust bur commercial affairs in that
way, why is it disloyal to go a step
further and aocept commercial union)
Ai far as British trade is concerned,
we believe commercial union would
not make it leu. Great Britain
now exports a largo amount to tho
Unit** States as well aa to Canada,
and commercial union would not
materially affect that trade. But if
it did, Canada has perfect liberty to
buy wh*ie the best markets an, and
if it ii to her advantage to buy in
the United- States, Great Britain
has neither the power nor the disposition to interfere. Commercial
uniftn would giye Canada such a
boom as it has never before experienced^ and this continent would
continue, as it always has been, one
of Britain's best ouitomert,,,.

marie no note of it. Flo was shot in tiro
right leg, midway between tho hip anrl
the knee. This' happened two .hours
before dark, and considerably nearer our
lines, and he managed to craw! twenty
rods to get to Ibe shelter of the tree. It
was only a ilesh wound, ond could ho
have beeu taken into the lines thai night
ho would have beeu fit for dirty niilnn
■thirty days.    Pome men would have 'al:

Tbe incident up3et me considerably;

whirled on mo with a sort of scream.
You see, it all came so suddenly that 1
was confused, anrl when he came at mo
I was still on my hands and knees and
helpless. He held the gun at "charge

through the back of my blouse, and the
lunge pushed me over and the steel went
into the ground almost to the intuvrle of

fell across uie, uttering a groan of pain as
he came down.
My position was such that I could not
free myself Ior two or three minutes, and
when I did the man waa dead for sure.
,He had probably been unconscious for a
king time before tho frenzy of death
caused bim to attack me in the singular
'manner he did. So firmly was I pinned
to the earth that I had to "skin" ont of
my blouse to get free, nnd it took a stout
twist at the butt of the musket to pull
the bayonet out of the hard baked soil.
HE MAID WHO SMILES.
When She's Awake and Aftleep, and
-ffh.B she Crl...
A large pathetic case has como to tha
Listener's knowledge lately. It is that
pt a young woman who, in early life, was
burned upon the cheek hy slipping and
lulling upon a stove. The wound healed
so that the (car that was left is now
scarcely perceptible, and does not bv any
means amount to a blemish) but in
healing the mouth on the lelt side of the
face wai shortened somewhat and the
comer slightly turned up. The youug
lady Is a pretty brunette, with a nose
-slightly aquiline, a face of tho French
type. But thia odd, involuntary smile
gives her ho* an expression of slyness
which does not in the least belong to her
character. If she eaten a'sl rec t car, sits
down, and begins to look ont of the opposite window, some male person of light
disposition sitting oppoiite her is altogether likely to say to himself: "Aha,
sly one I" and he immediately proceeds
to lay the foundations for a* flirtation,
Tlie young woman Ignores him completely. Bnt there Is thot sly look nil
the timo, that engaging smile, which she
nover abandons lor a uiomont. What is
i hu to make of it ? Ho hasno knowledge
of the fact that she fell on a stovo when
she was 0 yean old, and had that smile
engraved indelibly upon her countenance
with blistering iron. He Bees the pretty
simper, that is all; and there are chances
that ho may mako tho occasion a very
il sngrceable one for the young lady.
The attractive deformity has, Tn fact,
bran the occasion of no llttlo persecution
to her; and she has acquired the habit,
.., 'It. JtiS.twnojilljle for her to avoid go-
.ng out alone ijuite frequently, of never
.unking at anybody at all. Yet that, as
we hnve seen, does not spare her. Wherever ahe goes that same sly smile goes
with her. It is a torment und a heavi-
i ness of heart to her.
It is impossible to imagine that onco or
twice she may have said to herself i
"Mnco, with the world, I mutt have Ihe
name ol being a sly llirt, why not quietly
amuse myself n little In that direction. '*'*
il sl.c had yielded to such a temptation
tl e excuse might be woll urged for her
Unit her accident, and not herself, wns
> responsible; that fate bad been too much
(oilier. She wonld be a clear example
ol a llirt In spite oi herself. She has,
i.owever, done nothing of the' sort. Sire
! a patient and long-suffering victim ol
a fate which has marked her without
marring. _^ _

It ia an uid saying that one lias to go
from homo to hoar tho news, ThoBlaino
Journal says that a large railway meeting was- held in this oity on Tuesday
night, and two delegates wero appointed
to go to Ottawa in the interest of the

railway at all, but to consider steps for
the improvement of the navigation of

the delegates were appointed.

A Gtwl Time.
Programmes will bo issued this evoning for the concert to be givon on Monday night, in Horring's opera houso,
in aid of the library. A glance at the
list of those who are to take part will bo
sufficient to convince all the concert
is going to be something abovo tho
average. Capt. Scoullar has requested
the members of the rifio company to
attend in uniform and it is understood
the artillery will do the same. A really
enjoyable evening may be looked for.
A Scliool fur Hniuirrlon.
A meeting of tho residents of Sapperton will be held to-night in the dinning room of the Brunette Sawmills to
discuss the question of establishing a
publio school in that suburb. It appears the government have promised
to furnish a teacher if the residents of
Sapperton will erect a suitable school-
house, and it is for the purpose of finding ways and means tlie meeting is
called. Atony season of tho year, and
even in the best of weat hor, the walk
from Sapperton to the school in this
city is too far for children, and it is to
be hoped the meeting will be successful in its results,
A Tclcieope Transaction.
A short time ago a man named Conrad went into W, H. Vianen's storo
and offered a telescope for salo, placing
the price at §8. Mr. Vianen purchased it, paid the money and laid it away.
A few days afterwards tho man called
again, and in speaking of the telescope
Mr. Vianen said ono of the lens was
broken. Conrad said ho knew whero
he could gat it fixed for n dollar and n
half if Mr. Vianen would allow him tu
take it away for that purposo. He
took tho telescope awny and that was
the last seen of it till found in Roidt's
pawnshop. This happened in February, and it was only yesterday Conrad
turned up again and was arrested on
oharge of obtaining goods under falsi)
pretences. He came before the police
magistrate this afternoon and was sentenced to two months in jail with hard
labor.
Provincial LeglHtatnrc.
On Monday Mr. Beaven moved for
all orders and papers connected with
the proroguing of tho house, etc.,
since 15th December last. The mover
contended that tho wholo procedure
had been irregular and illegal. The
provincial secretary hnd nover been
properly made premier. Hon. Mr.
Robson moved that tho resolution be
amended su as to include returns covering 1880, when an exactly similar
thing was dono by the administration
of which Mr, Heaven was member.
Mr. Heaven replied thut the statute to
which he referred was paused in 1880.
The resolution passed as amended. Mr.
Orr moved for a committee to consider
the quostion of protecting workingmen.
Thero were several bills of the kind
before the house, und he thuuglit they
ought to be boiled down. A petition
was presented from over 1200 people
of Victoria nnd Comox praying that
the coal miners' amendment act might
be passed. In moving tho second
reading of thia act, Air. Thomson said
it was probably tho most important
measure of the session. Hon. Mr.
Robson supported tho bill, hut took
exception to the clauso excluding
Chinaman from tho mine!, Whilo hu
would be glad to see all theso peoplo
excluded from the mines und from the
country, ho believed such a clause to
be unconstitutional, aud to pass it
would be foolish, as it wonld omlnnyer
the whole bill. Mr. Mason took similar ground, and contended that it was
nob truo that tho Chinese wero an
element of danger in the mines. From
official returns he showed that from
1870 to 1888 tho number of fatal accidents had been 238, and of non-fatal
248, and the number of these accidents
caused by Chinamen was only about 1
per cent of the whole. Tho expulsion
of Chinese was neither lawful nor politic, for their places would have to be
.filled by other classes far more dangerous. Mr. Fry also spnku against the
clause. Mr.Humphr-.tys contended that
tho opinions of practical miners were
worth far more than tho opinions of
those who had no knowledgo of mining. The miners believed tho employment of Chinamen to be dangeroui,
and he did not think a clause excluding
them would be unconstitutional. It
might be passed anyway, nnd if the act
was disallowed nt Ottawa we couldn't
help it. Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir said the
exclusion uf Chinamen would not promote the safety of tho miners. The
real minors did nut want Chinese excluded. If a ballot were taken to-morrow among the minors, n majority of
them would be found opposed to tho
clause. It wns simply n movement
emanating from tho Knights of Labor.
Be explained the circumstance of so
many miners signing the petition for
exclusion by saying that the miners
were afraid to resist the knights. They
were afraid a lighted powder can might
be thrown into their nouses. Such a
thing had been done already in Kauai-
mo. Hon. Mr. Davie said he would
support the exclusion olnuse if he
thought it would aid in protecting the
lives of the miners, but ho did not
think so.   The debate was adjourned.
On Tuesday Hon. Mr. Robson moved
for the consideration of the new liquor
license bill, and explained ito scope.
He said he introduced it at a private
member and ic was not a government
measure. In consequence of some informality the resolution was laid over,
and tbe debate was resumed on the
minea regulation aot,
Tbo superiority of Mother. Graves-
Worm Exterminator is shown by its

Late Despatches,
A WEnTIOO.
Edmonton* *N. W. T., Mar. 19.—Last
spring it was reported that, owing to
hunger, during the previous winter several cases of cannibalism had occurred at
Little Red river, on the Peace river, bo-
low Vermillion. It is now reported that
the cannibalism was not caused by hunger, but was the work of a woman who
had turned "Wchtigo" sevoral years ago
and who has since killed and eaten
twelve persons, members of hor family
and others. She was alive at last accounts.
1USMARCK  APMIOVES,
Bucharest, Mar. 10.—At a private

Balliano read a telegram from Prince
Bismarck expressing an appreciation of
the judicious manner In which Brataiano
has conducted tlie affairs of Konmania for
the past twelve years, requesting him to
reconsider his resignation in view of the
existing crisis. Bratdiano described tho
situation as very critical, and said he desired to respond to Bismarck's request.
TASCOTT IN MONTANA.
Hklesa, Mont, Mar. 19.—Word
comes from Boulder, ou the Wickes
branch of the Northern Pacifio, 30 miles
from here, that Tascott, murderer of
millionaire Snoll, was recognized there
to-day. According to the report, a man
who new Tascott a few years ago thought
he recognized him, and spoke to him,
Tascott at first denied his identity, but
afterward acknowledged it, as he saw
from his friend's manner that lie know
nothing of the murder. Shortly after
Tascott's friend, who has been un the
range for the past two months, picked up
a paper and saw the advertisement offering $10,000 reward. He immediately
started out to find Tascott, but discovered that be had left town. A party of
twelve has been formed to scour the
neighborhood, which is quite inoun-
taiuons.
AN IMPORTANT DECIHION,
New York, March 10.— The Times'
special cable says: The completion of
tho C. P. Railway has caused a great
change in the administration of tha
affairs of the English navy on
the Pacific. Hereafter, according to a recent decision of the admiralty, they will cummiuiiiu and repair sbipa at tho western terminus of
tho railway on a larger scale than
either at Hong Kong or Malta. The
railway hus to carry tho storos, machinery, ships' crews, etc., very cheaply. Heretofore every ship on the station came homo onco in three years to
bo ropaircd. Hereafter they can remain out, thus saving, it is ustimatod.
£50,000 sterling annually. Another
result wilt be the creation of a reserve
English vessel in tho Pacific to use in
case of emergency.

LOCAL OOVERNMKNT IN ENGLAND.
London. Mar. 20.—In the honse of
commons this evening, Mr. C. T, Ritchie, the president ofthe  local  govern-
Children Cryfor Pitcher'sCastoria
ment board, Introduced the local government bill for England and Wales. The
bill proposes the establishment of a
county council to be elected directly by
the ratepayers and to havo control of tho
tbe county police aud to exercise tlio
powers now held by the local authorities
over gas and water works, artisan dwellings, the sale of food and drugs, sanitary
conditions, etc., and to make advances
iu uid of emigration when there is
reason for so doing. The bill does not
interfere witii Ihe judicial work of magistrates, but confers upon tho now councils the administrative powers of tlie
justices respecting county rates and financial business. Mr. Ritchie made a
long statement of the powers and importance of tho lull, Mr. Gladstone called
attention to the exclusion uf Scotland
and Ireland frout tlie provisions of the
bill. Their side, he said, would treat the
measure candidly, but the proposals were
altogether too large to admit of immediate criticism. The house must retain
absolute liberty of judgment ou both the
mass and the details of the bill. Leave
was then formally given to introduce the
bill In the house by a vote of 144 to 85.
Under closure,  the houso adopted tho
Sroposal to fix the salary of Colonel
jng-Harman as undersecretary for
Ireland. A discussion in tlie lobbies of
the house to-night disclosed u general
approval of the local government bill on
the part of the opposition.

Hulllvnn'i Defeat.
Sullivan's defeat might be endured with
better grace if he carried the sympathy
of his countrymen. But if he could hear
the general expression of satisfaction
over the defeat of the big brute who beat

that one J. L. Sullivan was ever born.—
