The Ottawa Mlsslca.
Hon. John Robson, who arrived
at Viotoria from Ottawa. last Sunday, was interviewed .by a representative of the Colonist with the following result:
Rep.—Would you have any objection to state how far and in what
Earticular, your mission to Ottawa
as been successful!
Minister—I do not feel at liberty
to give a specific answer, inasmuch
as the subjects and results are necessarily of a confidential character,
and must come before the executive,
if not befere the legislature, before
they can, with propriety or advantage, be given to the public. I feel
free to Bay generally, however, that
very important results have been
and are likely to be attained.
Did you find the government
at Ottawa favorably disposed towards this province!
1 found the ministers wilh whom
I was brought in contract, apparently anxious to meet the provincial
government in a fair spirit and to
adjust existing differences, and the
impression I received is that the increasing importance and great possibilities of our province are beginning to receive due recognition at
the federal capital.
Do you think it probable that the
policy of disallowance will be enforced, as against the New Westminster
Southern Railway*
I entertain strong hopes that it
will not. I am confident Sir John
Macdonald is anxious to see his Way
to avoiding such a collision, as he
is now convinced disallowance in
that oase would provoke. Both Mr.
Ohisholm and myself did our best
while at Ottawa towards averting
any difficulty of that kind, and I
venture to think not without good
results.
In what way do you think such
a collision will be avoided)
I do not feel at liberty to say, but
I am aware that tho matter is occupying the serious attention of the
ministers and that a way out of the
difficulty is likely to be found. It
is pretty well understood now that
the railway in question would not
be antagonistic to the 0. P. R interests, but the reverse.
Am I right in assuming that
there was no ground for the newspaper statement to the effect that
you said the people of New Westminster were willing to forego their
right to their railway out of a spirit
of loyalty to the 0. P. R!
You are quite right in assuming
that, and more. So far from doing
anything of the kind, as already
stated, 1 made every effort in my
power to clear the way for the avoidance of any obstruction to that- railway, and it would have been strange
and unnatural had I not done so.
Apart from my duty to my own
constituency, 1 have a large personal interest in seeing that road built,
and have always been a strong advocate of it both in and out of the
legislature.
I understand you were consulted
when nt Ottawa upon the subject
of the international fishery quostion,
with especial reference to the Behring's Sea outrages. Is it your opinion that the commission will deal
with that branch of the subject!
It is my own opinion that Oanada
will object to the Behring's Sea
matter being, so to speak, "thrown
in," with the fishory dispute proper.
The Behring's Sea dispute is now
involving the rights of all maritime
nations upon the high seas, and for
Oanada to consent to ita being mixed up and considered with the Atlantic fishory dispute might be regarded as an admission that it is a
fitting question for comprise as between the two nations only. I think
it likely that Canada will prefer to
stand on her undoubted rights and
thus have tho empathy and support
of all maritime nations. Meanwhile
I am aware that the Dominion government is pressing the claims for
indemnity of our people who became
the victims of the Behring's Sea
outrages, and up till the time I left
Ottawa there had been no official
denial at Washington of the right to
compensation.
Did you observe much improvement iu Ontario since your previous
visit!
Yes. The improvement in many
parts of Ontario is very marked indeed. There are to be seen in most
of the towns and oities untnistake-
ablc indications of greatly increasing
wealth, while in the country the eye
meets everywhere signs of improved
farming and increasing comfort.
This being your first trip ovor the
O. P. R, whot are jour impressions
respecting the road and the country
traversed by it!
The road itself is undoubtedly a
marvellous feat of enterprise and
engineering skill. Its appointments
and management elicit unmeasured
praise from all who travel iti "nd
for grandeur the mountain scenery
simply beggars descrption, while the'
civility and assiduons attentious of
the officers, present to the traveler
a pleasing contrast to what one
meets with on some other roads.

LAST NIBHT'S DESPATCHES.
Mil. owdstone's apolooy.
London, Nov. 22.—Mr. Gladstone
has written.a letter to Col. Depping,
Donegal, the landlord from whose estato some especially brutal evictions
were recently enforced,' apologizing
for the inaccuracy of the statements
he made concerning the. Gweedore
evictions, reflecting upon the colonel.
Mr. Gladstone says tbat he had no intention of imputing to Col. Depping
the use of loaded guns npon that occasion, and regrets that the latter
could have so construed his comments.
Col, Depping has consequently aban
doned his intention ot seeking legal
redress for the strictness of the ex-
premier.
THE SCHOLTEN   DISALTEH.    THE   CHIEF
MATES STOKT.
London, Nov. 22.—.Chief Mate
Wells of the Rosa Mary states she left
Hartlepool on Friday, in command of
Captain Websters and with a crew of
lli men. On the night of collision'
there was a shifting fog, sometimes it
was dense, while at the intervals it wm
was clear. At about 8:30 o'clock, he
says the collision occurred. "Wo had
been at anchor since S o'clock, myself
and thecaptain were on the bridge.
The sea was of the calmest, our lights
were burning brightly and the fog bell
was sounding constantly. I first saw
the colliding stoamer off the starboard
bow. We could not shift our position
being anchored and tbe tide being ebb.
The steamer soon ported her helm and
attempted to cross our bows, the tide,
however, not being rightly judged,
settled the vessel on to our bows, out-
ting her to the water's orlge. I oannot
taw whether it was the W. A. Schulten
that collided with us. Whatever vessel it was, she proceeded on her
course and soon disappeared in the
darkness. We remained at anchor
during the night, and were piloted to
Dover at 7 o'clock in the morning.
There we were docked." Capt. Webster states that the weather during
the voyage was hazy. Oh Saturday
morning there waa a hoary fog, and
tho Rosa Maryauchored forthree hours
off Halfurdnesa. She procoeded at 1
o'clock, and passed the East Goodwin
lightship at 7 in the evening. The fog
became so thick thst she was compelled to anchor again at 8 o'clook, the
vessel being then from 7 to 8
miles south-west of the East Goodwin
light. The collision occurred at about
1:30 a.m. The forecastle lookout wns
the first to intimnta the approach of a
vessel.

THE FRENCH CRISIS.
London, Nov. 23.—The French
crisis hns reached an acute stage.
Olemoncio'a refusal to form a ministry
is final. He told M. Bravi in ao mauy
words that he considered the crisis
presidential, not ministerial, arid
that meant that he would not
take ofllco while Grevy remained at
the head of tho states. His refusal
was civil in form but it was none tho
less a deadly affront to the president,
and it is nlso a meiinnce. French
publio opinion seems nnw to favor but
ono solution: Grevy'B ptvsideiicy is to
be made impossible by the impossibility of finding a cabinet to serve under
him. The chamber is in a mood to
overthrow at once any ministry accepting office under Wilson's father-in-
law, in
SUIT0.1KH TO PS INCENDIARY.
New York, Nov. 23.—A roward of
(1,000 has been offered for the dia-
covery of the man who fired Barnum's
winter quarters in Bridgeport, Conn.,
on Saturday night. A'story has been
floated to the eli'ect tlint' on Thursday
or Friday evening lust week three men
were overhead talking in a liquor store
about greivances thoy had against the
show and their determination to «et
oven. One of thorn said he had not
been given a fair chance, and proposed
firing tho winter quarters' building to
obtain satisfaction.
Whon asked to-day what tho Bridgeport fire had cost him, Barnum said:
" I think that $200,000 will till up the
gap. Of couno we will have to got a
good nnny more animals tlinn those
we1 havo lest, because they will'have
to go throuph a sort of survival of the
fittest, a process that will kill off many
of them. Of the 180,000 insurance
the circus wns carrying, (35,000 was
on what was lost." Barnum estimates
the worth of advertising thoy will gain
by the fire at (60,000. Hutchison
put it nt (100,000. Soicntists wore
busy yesterday nt Bridgeport carving

THE   REPUBLIC   OF LrtEBIA A   FIOLE,
Philadelphia, Nov. 23.—Charles
H. Taylor, Uiiittd'States minister to
Liberia, who has returned a this city

immigrant, from the United States
nearly ill are'dead, and there an
never nny children of immigrant families iu the third generation. There U
not' a carriage or w«gon or mm

THIS AFTERNOON* DISFATOUS.
THE   PURIFYING   SYSTEM   COUHBNOXD.   .
San Francisco,  Nov.  23. Tha
county grand jury presented its final '
report to-day. The offices of auditor,
treasurer, district, oity and county at-r
torney and fire department are oom-
mended forthe excellent manner in
which they have been conducted. Tha
publio is to be congratulated on theep- .
preaching completion of the oity hall;
many enrages against the police department have been examined and
some of them found not to be without
foundation; the dismissal of a clerk of
ono of the police courts is recommended, as he has been guilty of many
grave offenses. Tbe charges of jury
bribing have been investigated, and
the jury find thst it has been carried

Chicaoo, Nov. 23.—When the rait

this morning, the attorneys for the
plaintiff, moved to have the case dis
missed at their coat, and the conrt so .
ordered. The trust ia credited with

case was the Hoffman estate, of New

We are sure many of our renders
will be gratified to learn from the
statement of the provincial secretary which appears in another column that there is overy reason to
helievo that tho Ottawa government
will not disallow the Westminster
Southern Railway charter. It must
be perfectly plain to all that there
is no plea upon which the government could justify a disallowance
of this charter, lt interferes with
no public interest, it conflicts with
no federal law, nnd it is absolutely
necessary to the completion of the
railway system of the Pacific coast.
Since tho government of Britisli
Columbia mado no provision to have
this province represented in the interprovincial conference, we think
it would be an excellent plan for it
to lay before the legislature for consideration a minute embracing such
of tho resolutions adopted by the
conference as meet its approval.
We feel sure that if the government
were to adopt this suggestion, its
action would meet with tho hearty
approval of a large number of the
people of this province. Those who
have carefully observed publio
events must know there are serious
dangers threatening the stability of
our institutions, and that if there is
any remedy to be had it ought to be
sought out and applied without delay. In the resolutions adopted by
the Quebec conference there mny be
some that will not recommend themselves to the judgment of our legislators, but there are doubtless many
that would be heartily and almost
unanimously endorsed. A resolution might be passed containing such
endorsement, und forwarded to the
secretary of the conference as an
embodiment of the view of the people of British Columbia. It may
suit the inclination of those who
feel themselves unequal to the task
of grappling with great public questions to sit idle and let the crisis
oome before seeking for remedial
measures, but it is the part of a wise
statesman to avert disaster by the
timely application of. such remedies
as experience and judgment may
■uggest.
There seems to be no doubt at all
that Ayoub Khan is actually alive,
and that he did not perish of hunger on the desert as reported.
Ayoub's nine lives havo, therefore,
been of great service to him, and he
may live yet for many years to
bother or to aid the British government. It will be remembered that
at the lord mayor's banquet in London Lord Salisbury made a speech
in whioh he stated that Ayoub had
surrendered to the Indian govern
ment. This statement is now supplemented by what seems to be
authentic information to the effect
that the surrender of tbe Afghan
chief was brought about by the
diplomacy of the British government. It was felt that his influence
among the wild Afghans constituted
a continual menace to the nation,
and as the friendship of Afghanistan was believed to be necessary to
the security of India, the imperial
government mode certain proposals
to the Khan which resulted in a
friendly arrangement. Ayoub really has a legal claim to the throne,
and he would doubtless have been
permitted to occupy it but for his
decided pro-Russian proclivities.
The Khans and other nabobs of
Afghanistan have of late years been
constantly in tho market, offering
their services and their allegiance
to the highest bidder; and as Russia
has not been slow to provide subsidies for such of the mercenary
crowd as came within her influence,
it hu been found necessary for the
British government to adopt a similar polioy, The present occupant
of the Afghan throne is kept in the
traces by British subsidies and promises of active support in case of
emergency. But he is a feeble
ruler, and in the natural course of
event* he will probably die before
long or become the victim of assassination. In view of the circumstances it is said that the British
government ha* covenanted with
Ayoub that he shall havo the throne
when vacated by Abdul Rahman.
Doubtless in the meantime he is to
receive an adequate pension, and to
use his great influence in favor- of
British ascendancy. Since his
forced exile Ayoub Khan has, of
course, been most hostile to the
British, because it was British influence and power which prevented
him from coming into possession of
the throne. All this is now changed, however, according to the report, and he is hereafter to be tho
firm ally of the queen. The arrangement seems satisfactory enough,
if It keeps; but the present ameer
ha* a eon and heir who, upon tho
death of hi* parent, may set up a
olaim to the ameership. If be does,
and his claim obtains the support of
Russia, the affair* of Afghanistan
may suddenly relapse into hopeless
confusion.
H. V. MaoCarthy, Wholesale and He-
tall Druggist, Ottawa, writes: "I was afflicted with Chronic Bronchitis for somo
years, but have been completely cured by
the use of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrio Oil in
iotet of five drops on sugar. I havo also

lȣaaavM7. RAPID PENMEN,
Telegraph Operators Who Average Forty.
Ore Words a Minute.
Telegraph operators, taken altogether,
can probably write faster than any other
class of men who use the pen. It is also
true that the telegraph operators of
America aro much faster and in every
way better than those of England or any
of the continental countries. This is
probably due to the fact that in England
the telegraph is conducted by the govern-
ment, uud thero is little competition or
inducement of any kind to lead the operators to improve or excel.
In America it Is just the reverse. The
salary is in accordance with the work of
the employe, and a lirst class man need
never be without work at good pay.
Before an operator can securo a berth
in any first class olllce he must be able to
"take" on a text at nn average rate of
sending, and make a "clean" copy of the
message. A single glance at a "copy" is
suHicirriit to inform the manager whether
the applicant is an old operator or not,
for there is a peculiarity about the penmanship of telegraphers that is unmistakable. From necessity there is very
little llourlsh in the writing, and the pen
is pulled rather than pushed over the
paper, and is very a ldorn lifted from the
page- That accounts for the frequency
with which dill'erent words in messages
an) connected by hair lines. Very often
an entire line is written without the pen
leaving the paper.
"I'll tell you how It is that telegraphers
becomrr fast penmen," said an expert
operator. "It is not because they are
any quicker in moving their fingers than
other penmen, but because they must
keep up with the instrument from which
they are receiving. Operators will not
'break' n sender if they can possibly help
it, and they keep their pens moving as
rapidly aa possible in order to avoid
breaking. Very few telegraphers can
follow more than five words behind the
instrument, and the majority cannot drop
three wor.Is behind ana not make a 'bull'
of it Since they must keep up tbey do
their best, and the result is they improve
in speed. Another fact:—Operators cannot write nearly as fust when they are
not recelvinrr as when they are following
the instrument. They are many telegraphers who can make a legible copy at
the rate of forty-five or even forty-eight
words a minute while receiving who
could not put forty words on paper at
other times.
"I knew an operator who made a wager
of on oyster supper for a dozen men,
several years ago, with a reporter, that he
could write legibly live words more a
minute, for three minutes, than the reporter, who was a fast penman. The reporter succeeded in getting down 114
words In three minutes, a friend reading
to him Irom a newspaper article. The
average was just thirty-eight words. The
operator then invited the party to a telegraph office, and got one of the fast men
there to 'send' for him, taking the same
article from which the reporter bad
written. The operator copied forty-six
words the first minute, forty-four the
second and forty-five the third, winning
with ease. He then tried to do the same,
having a man to read for him, and only
averaged forty words."
During the great Boston fire an operator.
in New York received 248 messages between seven o'clock aed noon, and sent
216 during the afternoon of the same
day. The messages, including the addresses, signatures, dateline and "checks,"
averaged thirty words. Thus, during the
fivo hours he was vielilinr the pen, he
co;.ru.l over seven tltuusaml live hundred
words, or fifteen hundred words an hour.
There ere a dozen operators in Philadelphia who could beat oven that if they
wero called upon to doit. These men
would probably not break the sender
once in an hour, if the latter was a good
operator, and, when through, it is doubtful if they would ramVmber a word they
had penned. The operator is simply a
machine; the oound of the Instrument'
enters bis ear and runs out of hla urn to
the nib of his pen to the paper. The
writing becomes almost involuntary.
DecldedlraFuleluIdea, _
Paris hu Ht npon a new idea in cafe
chantants. The spectator to fint Introduced into a pretty cafe, carpeted,
elegantly furnished and lighted and With
the gas dimmed by blue glass, which
gives a soft And mysterious appearance
to the surroundings.
From the drawing-room cafe one ia introduced into another room, or rather a
sort of passage or gallery, perfectly dark,
along which an ranged comfortable
chain. Seated in one of these the spectator finds before him a long ledge, into
which ore set framed pieces of glass about
a foot square, one before each person.
Looking closely there an aeen in the
glass the exact nprewntion of the stage
of a theatre; the eoenery, curtain, etc.,
etc. In this miniature stage appears a
performer three and a half Inches high,
who sings and dances in the usual cafe
chantant style. This little stage, and indeed the stage itself, is simply a reduced
copy thrown by some arrangement of
light or reflection on the glass of an
actual stage and an actual performer who
is singing on the other side of the partition. Every word is heard with perfect
distinctness in the natural voice ot the
singer. Every expression, every color,
the slightest jewels, even to the rings on

three and a half Inches high. Every
facial expression may be seen aa clearly

performer. They are excellent variety

this way, singers, jugglers and dancers
all being in miniature. Fifty-six reproductions of .the stage an made In the

Strange Weddlif leeae la Italy.
The Marquis Cantlno, of Italy, recently fell in love with a young English millionaire, Mils Ada Rutland, and arrangements wen mode for the marriage lot the
pair. The day came, the guests wen all
gathered, the clergyman waa ready. All
at once the bride appeared. A thrill of
excitement,, mingled with admiration,
rail through the party. The white dress
wore by the lady WU seen to be decorated with garlands of white doves too
numerous to be counted. The face of
the Marquis darkened ss he asked:
"When did you get these T"
"Oh," was the quick response, 'Thit
upon this splendid idea myself, and gave
instructions to the farmers on my English estates to catch all the dovee they
could and send them to ma."
"Anrl you Suppose," coldly said the
Marquis, "ibtf. I can take you to my arms
with that murderer's dress about yon t
Never! I dospiso you I" Thus speaking
the horrified bridegroom darted from tha
room and took the next train for Paris.
KIU.INQ THE OR1SAT AUK,
ow an Interesting Bird Wns Destroyed-
Other Enttnct Creatures.
Sixty or ssvonty years H30 tho great,
auks were exceedingly common tilonj;
tho northern coast, comln-r as far south
as Nabant. But warfare was commenced
upon them, and, though it hardly seems
possible, their extermination is doubtless rompletrr; Uk* last living b!rd having
beon kilfe 1 In 18+4, on a group of isliuiils
called Fung anker, off tho snuth-wrsl
coast of Iceland.
In the last century theso birds, which
were large, handsome aud striking in up
ltf'riritriee, were common at the Faro1
Islands, and, as they wore foirrd to lit'
good eating, thoy wore slaugiit red by
the boat-load, not only fur Immedinto
uso, but to Ira tlr-i rd ond preserved. Tlrey
wero finally driv n to a desolate roi-l
that wn r ronsirl 'rod inaccessible; bul
one calm day a luroeso vessel succeeded
in making a landing, and the crew de-
stroyed nearly tho cntiro rookery. A
few birds escaped to sea and returned
after the departure of tho men, and for n
time wero safe. Then, as if nature bin-
self wero in league against them, the
rock, a fow years later, was engulfed by tr
sub-marine eruption.
The fow remaining great auks now assembled and formed a rookery onaror-k
called Eldey, wb to, for fourteen years,
they lived a precarious existence. Dnr
ing that time sixty of tlieir number were
taken, and finally tho Inst pair was destroyed. Their history in oilier localities
is very 'similar to this. That the birds
were once common on the M.iine co.ist is
shown by tho fact that thSlr'bonJs are
found in the oystjr-shell heaps at various
parts of the shore.
At the samn timo and in tho samo locality with the great jink lived tile Labrador duck, quite rare even in collections,
and now totally extinct. The last known
living spocimen was killed by Colonel
"tVoddorburn, of Halifax, in 1852.
Ih a similar way the curious dodo
which was a great pigeon, was externiin
ate 1. The sailors who visited the Islrtiur
ot Mauritius used to kill them in mere
wanton sport.
The notornis, a beautiful rail of New
Zealand, has become extinct probably
within tbo memory of some of our read".

buffalo being crowded further an Ifurlb
into the mountains and almost exterminated from our Western plains.
Two Kinds of Temper.
"IV'then two days tho Listener witnessed a couple of incidents on Washing-
Ion street, which illustrated admirably
the difference there is iu people. Pass-
in;! along near the corner of Temple
place he saw two stout elderly ladies
standing sido by side—ono facing onu
way, howover, and the other the other
way, glaring at each other with furious
eves. There wns a little grinning crowd
about them, and when the Listener came
quite up to them he saw what was tlie
matter.   In meeting and undertaking to
frass, tho clothing of these two elderly
adies bad come in contact and a projecting button upon the dress of one bad
caught in the lace on tho garments of the
other. Their strain to disentangle them
selves had drawn them into a regular
snarl; tbe wrath of each had boen roused
to the boiling point, and each woman
seemed to be exclaiming, in the language,
of Scripture, "Who shall deliver mo
from this body of death ?" Instead 61
leaving the disentanglem mt to on r of
tlie two to be managed with deliberation
ant discretion, each was tugging awiv
spitefully at the point of jointure. Thero
seemed to be livelihood of nil o -cash r
for the interference of the police presm:
ly, for the faces of the two ladies wor r
growing redder and roller, and their
eyes snapped more and moro furiously.
I'reseutly ono lady gave a desperate tug,
the lace gave way and the tio war
severed. But imagine the feelings ui
the lady whoso lace had beon lacerate I!
Next day, passing over al uo.it tlu
same ground, tbo Listener saw a pretty
g rl, brown eyed, rally cheeked an I
short haired, and a stout Irish woman
In bonnet, a red and black shawl an I a
groen poplin dress, who were walking in
opposite directions, stop alt at ori.'o,
caught fast, just as tho women of tin day
befur-o had been. The young girl smiled
faintly and good naturedly. The Irishwoman took in tho situation and cour-
teiieJ.
"jure, miss," Raid she, "an' it's a sign
that we'll meet In heaven I"
The young lady smiled mora pronouncedly and said:
"Wait a moment and I will unfasten
It."
With half a minute's work she dis-
entangled the snarl.
"Ah, miss, remember it," said the
Irish wo nan, as she moved away, radiant
with smiles, "we're to meet in heaven,
sura!"
In a Tiger's Month.
As a young officer, doing duty with a
Madras cavalry regiment, Sir Edward
Bradford was a keen sportsman. One
day, when tiger-shooting, be "missed his
mark," and soon found himself In the
tiger's clutches. It was an anxious moment, few of his friends being at hand.
As a sportsman of experience, Sir Ed.
ward knew well that Ins best course was
to lie quietly ami sham death. The
tiger surveyed his prey, looked around,
and, thinking all was safe, set steadily to
work to make its meal. Taking tbe officer's hand in its mouth, it was steadily
disposed of, an tho arm chewed to the
elbow before Sir Edward's companions
came up ami released him. The cool
resolution of tho mail in feigning death
hud be-.'n the means of saving what has
since proved to be a most valuable life,
for had he moved or uttered even a
groan, the tiger would have put an end
to lus existence before going on with his
repast.
"Sin, I hear you using the word donkey very [roaueiitly in your conversation." "Yes, y'our ears do not deceive
you." "Am I to understand that you
apply the word to ino ?" "Why, what
makes you harbor such an unjust siu-
uiiiou? Don't you, know that there are
lots of donkeys in tbe world besides
you?"

Tho Maud Granger oompany begins
its engagement this evening in the

Railway Passes.
The Toronto ilfnil of the 17th inst.
says: " It may be consoling to Senator Melnjios, of British Columbia,
whose bill providing far the granting
of free railway passe, to legislator, ana
judges was ignominiously slaughtered
last session, tn know that a scheme
somewhat similar to hi. is in oporation
in Viotoria, Australia. Some time
ago the board of railway commissioners
abolished tho "dead-head" ticaet system, exoept in tbe case of members of
parliament, but tho legislature recently
passed a resolution to tho effect that
all members who hare served a, suoh
for 7 years should be entitled to free
passes over all tho railroad, of the
colony. Tho colonial press donounces
this move as being dishonorable and as
tending to affect the revenue of the
r-rilrrrails. The average annual value
of each pais is estimated at £100, and
as there is about 200 members who
would be entitled to tho privilege the
annual loss to railroad., whioh are government properly, will be about £200,-
000. The fact that tho railroads aro
owned by the government makes the
cue leu objectionable than it would
otherwise have been, but the principlo
iB wholly wrong nevertheless.

Ah Ye,o Chinaman, waa charged with
supplying liquor to an Indian named
Johnnie George, nnd pleaded not
guilty.
Johnnie Oeorgu gavo evidence to
the effect that he was standing on
Front street when An Yo accosted him
and wanted to know if ho liked whiskey. Johnnie acknowledged that ho
often had a hankering that way and
that the tire-water tickled hia palate
immensely. Ah Ye said if that whs the
case he would provide a bottle of real
good gin for 81, Johnnie jumped at
the tempting offer and without delay
handed the money over to the Celestial who departed to make the purchase. Coiistfthle Carty had his weath
er-ere open and got an inkling of what
was going on, so he determined to lay
low and catch Ah Yo. It was not long
before the Chinaman returned and
went down to Vianen's slip where
Johnnie was in waiting. Constable
Carty followed close, but Ah Ye had
caught sight of him and tried to hido
both himself and the gin. Both attempts were unsuccessful and tho bottle wos found behind one tub nnd tlio
Chinaman behind nii->ther.
As the evidotico wus complete ugaiiiht
Ah Yo, tho m-igiatrates, after consultation, sentenced him to pay a tine of
950 and go to jail for a term of 8
months with hard labor.

Toronto, Nov. 18.—-The more tho
failure of tho Central bank is -looked
iuto tho more it becomes apparent it
was duo to mismanagement, lack of
experionco and poor judgment on the
part of the directors. They offered
fivo per cent on deposits; two more
than othor banks, which brought in
92,000,000, but left little margin for
profit. With a capital of §500,000,
they wero not able to stand tho pressure of big accounts, und theso are
likely to be taken hold of by other
banks. Among tho loans were ?000,-
000 to tho directors. Another nttempt
to keep the bank afloat was tho forced
circulation of notes, but this didn't do
any good. It is believed other banks
are jealous and will not help to restore
the Central to its former position.
Among the heavy depositors were tho
Great Northwest Telegraph company,
H. P. Dwight being n director of tho
Central, and it is a significant faet
that the telegraph company refused to
accept the bank's bills on any account.

MSMAKCK AND THU CZAR.
Berlin, Nov. 22.—The Nortli German Gazette, tho official organ of
Prince Bismarck, in its issue of to-dsy
states that tho interview recently held
by Bismarck with the czar wns of n
most friendly character. The czar
complained of tho policy of Germany,
especially that pursued with regard to
Bulgara, which he declared was directed against Russian interests, which
was conclusively proven by tho letters
received by tho Russian foreign office.
Prince Bismarck in reply to this
declaration of the czar, indicated that
Germany always regarded Bulgaria as
lying within the sphere of Russian interests and always maintained this
spirit whenever no strictly German interests wero involved. Bismarck also
expressed his desire to see tho letters
mentioned and formulated at length on
Germany's complaint against Russia.
The czar was very attentive during
Prince Bismarck's recital, and promised on his return to St. Petersburg
to inform himself better in the matter
discussed and arrive nt tt decision accordingly.
