Taesdar Evening, Dee, te. IMT.
Nover handle firearms carelessly.
I used to do it, but of late years it
makes me boil to have anybody
point a gun or pistol toward me.
Two events in my life have done
more to inspire within me a wholesome respect for firearms than anything else that ever happened to
me. When I was about 15 years
old I borrowed a shotgun of a chum.
"Is it loaded)" was the first question
I asked. "No," was the reply, and
I, like a goose, believed what he
said. On the way home with it I
met another boy, who began dodging
behind the shade trees as I approached, Indian fashion. I, of course,
must do my part of the tragedy, so
cocking the gun, I began to skulk
too, until, when we finally met, to
show that he was plainly in my
power, I put the muzzle of the gun
up olose to his nose and pulled the
trigger. I thought no more of the
circumstances until evening, when
I began cleaning the gun, and found
that it was dogged up so I could
not blow through it Procuring a
cap, I placed in on the nipple, and,
going to the front door, pulled the
trigger, and away she went, with
a report that awoke the neighbors
for blocks around and filled the
leaves of a cherry tree near by as
full of holes as a skimmer. Then I
though of Tom, into whose face I
had snapped the gun. The fact that
the oap had become damp alone
prevented the gun from being discharged and blowing Tom's head into smithereens. Though his after
life was a fizzle, and he filled a
drunkard's grave at an early age,
yet how my life would have been
blighted if, through my boyish care
lessness, ho had been killed! I vowed
S vow at that time never to be care-
loss with firearms. One more circumstances occurred after I had
grown to manhood, I was standing
on a pile of lumber, busily engaged
in measuring it, when, hearing a
"cliok" behind met* oil tanwd, and
there stood a boatman pointing an
army musket squarely at my head
and sighting along the barrel. The
muzzle of the gun was only six feet
from my head, and he had just
snapped it at me. He was a man
50 years old, and, under the first
angry impulse that came over me,
I said: "You old fool, you ought to
know better than to snap a gun at
a fellow's head in that careless way."
"Aw, pshaw!" said he, "it isn't
loaded." "How do you know that!"
"Because it hu been lying around
my boat for more than six months,
and I know it isn't." "That's just
the reason you don't know anything
about it," said I. "Wall, now you're
making suoh a fuss about it, I'am
going to get a cap and. show you.
Here, hold the gun till I come back."
While he wu gone I ran the ramrod
down the barrel and found that it
was loaded. When he returned
with a cap I removed the old one
and replaced it with a new one.
Pointing the gun upward I pulled
the trigger and a report followed,
thd recoil from which nearly knocked me off the lumber pile and raised
the boatman's hair on end. "What
do you think now)" I asked. "Well,
said he, "that's the lost time I shall
point a gun at anybody if I live
100 years." A damp cap alone
saved me that time, and though I
should not have been to blame, yet
this event would have blighted my
life still moro effectually than the
first one, for it would undoubtedly
and a man who finds himself in that
condition ean but acknowledge that
his lifo is, in a measure, blighted,
and his future plans and prospects
somewhat interfered wilh. Don't
fool with firearms. If a gun is
loaded, and everybody knows it is
loaded, there is little danger. 'It is
the gun and the revolver which is
not loaded that goes off and kills
folks or maims them for life. So the
only safo way is to handle them at
all times as though they were loaded. Oet into the habit of so doing;
then it will become natural aud easy
to you, nnd you may be spared the
agony of gazing upon the mangled
form of some friend through whom
you have let daylight. Always
keep behind a gun yourself, and
point the muzzle away from other
people.—Sunsliine.
It has been sometimes stated that
there are 2,000,000 Unionists and
3,000,000 '-Nationalists" in Ireland;
but a careful estimate seems to establish the figures at one and a half
million Unionists only out of the
five millions inhabitants of Ireland.
In Ulster the proportion seems to
bo nearly one million Unionists to
670,000 'Nationalists."— The Week

RESOLUTION.
Washington, D. 0., Dec. 20. —
Special agent Tingle, who was sent by
the Treasury Department to the seal
Islands in Alaska waters laat year to
supervise the taking of seals, has made
his report. He says few seals perished on drives and fewer were killed
by clubbing than formerly. He recommends that more natives be employed
and educated by lessees of Islands in
the work of killing seals. He recommends that a twenty ton steam yacht
be sent to the Islands provided with
one small rifled gun. Such steamer
could run into Lagoons in search of
marauding schooners.
ln reply to the senate's resolution
introduced by S. Frye, of Maine, secretary Fairchild has sent that body all
the correspondence in the treasury
department relating to the recent bonding of the Pacific Const steamship oompany, and traffic agreement with the
Canadian Pacifio railway company for
the transportation of goods, wares and
merchandise between San Francisco
and Canadian points. Frye was asked
last night what was the object of the
resolutioi., ho replied: "I wanted to
see if the secretary had allowed Canadian goods to come into any point in
this country while Canada refuses to
permit our fishermen to ship their
fash in bond from Canadian points te
places in this oountry."

How II Works.
Our friend of the Seattle Post denounces the suggestion of President
Cleveland that there should be a reduction in the customs tariff* with .a
view to the adjustment of the fiscal
system of the country. The revenues, now exoeed the expenditure
by at least $100,000,000 a year.und
one of the most serious problems before the government during tho past
two year! has been the reduction of
the national- income. Protection
has created so many powerful monopolies that the road to reduction
of the tariff is obstructed all along
by those whose self interest rises up
against any change that may loosen
their grasp upon the consumer.
The president does not propose free
trade, but such a readjustment of
the tariff ss will lessen the burdens
of tlie consumer, while a reasonable
margin of protection shall be maintained.' The Seattle Post, being a
party organ of the Republican
stripe, and a thick-and-thin supporter of Mr. Blaine, is quite unable to
perceive anything either ornamental
or useful in Cleveland's message or
his administration. It asserts that
reciprocity in ooal and lumber would
prove fatal to the industries of
Washington Territory, ahd that reciprocity must, therefore, be firmly
resisted. The coal of British Columbia, it says, is superior to any
coal found in the Pacific states or
territories, and it can be placed in
San Franoisco at less cost than tho
American coal. Miners in this province, it says, get smaller wageB; and
the distance from the mines to the
place of shipment is very much less.
The federal government must, therefore, prevent the free introduction
of British Columbia coal, orthe coal
mines of Washington Territory will
be dosed up. The duty on coal entering the United States is 75 ets.
per ton, and so the people of San
Francisco and the whole American
Pacific coast pay a tax of 75 ets. on
every ton of ooal thoy use, and this
tax is for the benefit of Washington
Territory coal mines. If these minos
happened to be still farther away
from the coast, the expense of bringing the coal to the point of shipment would- be greatly increased.
In that case, following out the
itatesmanslike principles adopted by
the Post, it would become necessary
for,the.federal government to increase the tariff on coal tp such a
figure u will enable the Washington
Territory mines to compete with
British Columbia coal. It might
be found necessary, perhaps, to
mako the tariff |7 per ton, instead
of 75 ets., for one could not easily
determine where the line is to be
drawn. Our Seattle cotemporary
assert* (hat lumber can be monu-
faetumdmore cheaply in British
Columbia than acmes the line, because lajbor and supplies are cheaper
here ' than there. It maintains,
therefore, that free trade in lumber
would paralyze the lumber trade
of Puget Sound. We see no reason
why lumber cannot be made just as
cheaply on Puget Sound as in this
country. Labor ought to be equally
cheap, and so should supplies. If
they are hot, it is certainly not the
fault of Uie country, but of its fiscal
system. The U. S. tariff is in many
respecti a great deal, higher than
the Canadian tariff, and for that
reason some things cost mon in
Washington Territory than in Brit
ish Columbia. If we had free trade,
the mills of Puget Sound would
have an advantage over those of this
provinoe, because the resources of
the cotintry are far greater, and
nearly all articles of food would be
cheaper. But high tariffs produce
monopolies, and monopolies usually
put np prices; and'in order to on-
able certain industries to exist under the artificial prices additional
protection mult be given them to
shut out foreign competition. And
so the multiplication of artificial
props goes on, and for all these
things the consumer has to pay. If
then was free trade in coal and
lumber and iish, British Columbia
would be enabled to enter into competition with Puget Hound in tho
San Francisco market, and the coin-
Setition would probably bring prices
own toa fair margin; but every
dollar taken off the ' market price
would be another dollar in the pockets of consumers. If the competition wai sueh u to prevent the
profitable production of' lumber and
ooal at places for distant from points
of shipment, it Would be unfortunate
for thjiie places, It if questionable,
however, if the polioy is sound which
requires a whole nation to be heavily
taxed for the sake of developing a
tingle local induitry. What does
the development of Seattle's mines
of inferior coal amount to compared
to tb* hundreds of thousands of
dollin paid every, year as' a bonus
to that Indiujtfj by the sixty millions^of America! The principloof,

Rosalie and I wero Boated ln tha cosy
back parlor looking over ou wardrobes.
I had un array of failed old dresses that
I had turned and mado over and dyed
until thero was nothing could be done
with them.
Rosalie, who was the pet ot the family,
exulted in the possession of ■ new white
muslin,* and 1 must say I vas a little
jealous.
We expected a visit from oar cousin.
Dab Aruavan, and were rather ashamed
of our poor little house and surround-
in«s. fiosalie always appropriated him
for herself, as she Had done everything
since I wis a baby, but I liked the big?
manly fellow just the same.
If Dale noticed our shabbtness he uid
nothing about it when he came. I saw
very little ot him, as I taught tho village
school, but he was generally on hand to
speak a kind word when I started out
Koaalie and he spent whole days together, and it looked very much is tliough a
match would result.
One morning as they wore starting oS
to go to a picnic he stopped me with an
earnest look on his faco.
"Why will you work yourself to death?"
be said. "Better come with ua to the
woods."
But I shook my head. I could not tell
him that mother and Rosalie were de-
Eendent on my efforts.  All day in the
ot school room his kindly eyea Mowed

In the afternoon, lust aa recess was
over, a terrible storm came up and I bad
all that I could dote reassure the chll-•
area, who were crying around me. I began to pray, for I was terribly frightened
at the thunder. The next moment there
was a flash of lightning and the root of
the school-house fell in.
I can remember being picked up In
some one's strong arms and feeling turn
upon myttcfc and lips,pressed to mine;
then all was blank again.
But one moming-ohl sweet, blessed
relief!—I opened my eyes on our own
homely little room, never before a panto me.   everything was still, so very

.den In his hands, was Dale Ardavan,
"Dale", I said,:Ih a thin, weak voice,
Burely not my voice, "come here."
He started forward, but checked the
words that rose to bis lips, and came and
knolt quietly by the bedside, and I am
quite sure that there was something
moist on thepitilul wasted bands he bent
over, but he said never a word.
—"Dale," I went on questioning!;-, scarcely positive yet as to my own identity, "I
have been very ill."
-"Yes, very ill, my—Miriam; but you
must not talk, not ever so little. Yon
are better now, so much-better, but quiet
la essential." -
'Tell me then, everything, all about
it, for I can never rest until the dreaming and the reality are separate and distinct."
He told me then of how he and Rosalie,
seeing the storm, had returned from the
picnic and he started toward the school-
house intending to bring: the home, and
found nothing but a frightful mass of
brick and mortar, of how the village had
congregated, and me. women ana children to, had worked as never beforo in
an agony of fear, for it was their own
flesh aud blood tbat lay buried beneath.
"You escaped better than most of
them, Miriam?' said Dale in conclusion,
"and had it not been for the fever raging

Suffering in Silence,  0! Foi $
Brother's Life,
Ida Gray was an orphan living with
her sister's famllviu a Western village.
The lllottsons hod welcomed her lo their
homo and her sister's husband, Herbert,
had tried his best to make her comfortable In time Iris brother Ralph iell in
love with her, and it was decided that as
soon as the house he was building wu
completed they should be married.
It was about this time that a great
trouble fell upon that peaceful household.
Herbert Illottson had bad some troublo
with a notorious character named Fallin,
and in time a bitter enmity grew up between them. .   , .
Illottson found his cattle dying off by
poison, and one day when he heard that
fallin had shot his pet dog Juno in malice, he took down his gun from the well,
saying:
"I'll settle Fallin if I catch him."
Ralph felt alarmed, knowing his brother's temper, and soon followed bim to
see what happened.
The next day u the family were all
sitting down to breakfast the Sheriff of
the county appeared in the doorway and
announced that ho had come to arrest
Ralph Illottson.
The man Fallin had been found murdered and something of Ralph'anear by.
A curious pipe tbat had been given him
.by Ida Gray, hiB betrothed.
"May I speak to my brother a moment," Uked the prisoner, and the
Sheriff, who disliked his task, readily
consented to give the permission.
Ralph drew his brother aside and said:
"For God's sake keep still about lut
night You've got a family and I haven't.
I'll bear the punishment*"
"But why should you. Neither one of
Us should suffer for the crime. In a few
days you Will be a free man I" and there
wu no fear in his face,
Ralph looked wonderiagly at the other's
face u he wu led away.
He had resolved that he wonld make
no defence in the cue, and maintained
silence throughout bis trial.
The jury brought him in guilty, with a
recommendation to mercy on account of
his hitherto blameless character.
Ho was sentenced to imprisonment for.
lite instead of hanging.
When the prison walls closed about
him, in all probability for the whole of
bis remaining days, it can be imagined
that thero wu deep mourning within
the family circle at the farm house, of
which he hod been the light and adornment
Ida—his betrothed bride—had ono
secret hidden within her heart which
kept her from sinking entirely under the
blow.
To her alone had Ralph broken his
resolute silence; but it wu under a
promise of secrecy which she would havo
died rather than break.
"I will cue my heart by telling it to
you, Ida, because, out of all the world,
you are the one who has a right to know
the truth. I am as innocent of the crime
as you are, but I choose to suffer in place
of the real offender; and If you are the
loyal little woman I think you to be, you
will abide unquestionably by my decision."
And Ida raised by his confiding belief
and trust in her to the lofty plane of
self-abnegation upon which Ralph himself stood, made no outcry.
She accepted the situation In the same
light u Ralph, and if any suspicion as to
the identity of the real sinner ever entered her mind, it went no farther.
She with the remainder of the afflicted
family, went on in the round of daily
duties quietly and uncomplainingly.
Sheriff Kendeli wu not satisfied with
the result of thn'. case, and did his best to
try and find a way to help the prisoner.
A few weeks after Ralph bad entered his
prison a burglar in a neighboring town
was shot down one night The Sheriff
was given charge of tbe man's effects.
What wu his delight to find in an old
portmanteau a paper from which had
been torn the gunwads found near the
spot of Pallia's murder, and the amber
mouthpiece of the pipe.
Thore wu little delay in making out
the paper to set Ralph free, and then
Kendall went to him with the good news
that the real murderer had been found,
and tbat be wu declared to be innocent,
and was no longer a prisoner.
"Ralph listened to him in a dazed sort
of way at first and then heutonished
Kendeli .by exclaiming:
"Then Herbert did not kill Fallin, after
all? How I have misjudged html I,
In my way, have been u unjust to him
u ray fellow-men have beon to me."
"Then that wu where the trouble lay,
was it?" uid Kendeli. "You sacrificed
yourself for HerbJrt, did you ? Well, no
one need to tell me there ia no aSection
in the world, after this. But come, we
will go and carry ourgladnews to Herbert
aad.to the rest"
e    ~   •
Alter the first rejoicing at Ralph's
return were over, he turned to his bro.
ther.
"Herbert," he said. "I must make a
confession before I rest contented. I
thought yon gave Fallin hie death-blow.
Will you forgive me for misjudging you
so cruelly?"
"You haveumuohtoforgiveulhavo.
Ralph, for I thought 704 Sad taken revenge upon him for killing Juno, And,
instead, you allowed yourself to be
stamped a criminal to shield tho brother
you thought guilty. How can I repay
you Ralph?" s   ™
"By cheering up and trying to look
like yourself again, Herbert You have
grown ten years older since I have been
In prison." ■, {    ':
'■I shall grow young again now, Ralph.
For I feel so happy and light-hearted at
teeing you again that it takes mo back to
my boyish days."
"And, Ida, come here and listen to me.
I want my faithful little girl to promise
me one thing.   Will she?"
"What is it, Ralph 7" uked Ids, blushing and: trembling at the .words which
the knew by intuition were tol follow.
"Let Us celebrate the happy day of my
release by another event which is of u
great importance to my happiness. Let

Moodyville are always foremost .in

will reap a rich reward.
More IJglil Wanted.
A complaint was sent into tho council last night that the lamps aro turned
out several hours beforo daybreak.
That this has been done quite frequently ii a well known fact. During these
dark mornings ' when work-men nre
required to be out shortly after six
o'clock it ia scarcely fair to thorn to be
forced to grope their way along dangerous sidewalks at tho risk of breaking a limb. If the gas company is
paid to lighten the darkness it ought
to be kept to ita contract We hope
the lamp committee will take the matter in hand and act with decision.
.Baseless Manors.
It waa currently reported on the
itreet yesterday that the provincial
seoretary was about to resign his sunt
in the cabinet and accept a senatorship.
Tho Victoria Tt'twa of Saturday odi-
torially puts forward a rumor to tho
effect that the provincial secretary will
retire from the government and is
seeking for the position of immigration
agent, now held by Mr. JosBop. We
are not in the provincial secretary's
confidence with respect to those
matters, but it is scarcely necessary to
say that both rumors aro absurdly
ridiculous.
The Bell Blngers.
The renowned Royce & Lansing Musical Comedy company and Swiss bell
ringers are coming Dec. 24th. Thia
company comes endorsed by prou and
public of the entire west, During
their eight successful years on the road
over one million people have witnessed
their entertainment. Aud hulls and
theatres have beon found utterly inadequate for the accommodation of the
people eager to gain admission. This
is accounted for by their strict adherence of presenting a strictly rotined
entertainment composed of the best
artists, and the best vocal and instrumental music. Remember thoy re-
lnniu hero but ono night.

A Ghastly Mud.
Yesterday afternoon while oue of
our molt roipectod op town citizena
was taking a walk serosa some vacant
lots near Royal avenue he discovered
what appeared to be u newly mado
grave. HiB supiciotis being aroused
by the grave-like look of the mound
he determined to investigate the mystery and, with hid cane, commenced
probing the newly turned clay, -The
earth was soft und yielded readily to
theforceuaod inpressingthestickdown-
ward. At the depth of about 24 inches
the cane came iu contact with something soft and rubber liko, which
yielded before tho stick but into which
it would not pass. Horrified to find
that his suspicious were not groundless,
our respected citizen, after noting the
spot, hurried down town to inform the
police of the crime he was about to
unearth. Meeting Constable Peurse
on Colombia atreet our R. C. dragged
him into Slopers alley and with shaking limbs and trembling voice unfolded the awful talo. As the constable
listened hia eyea began to brighten,
here waa a chance to distinguish himself, the chance ho had sought for ao
long in vain. There was glory in it,
he would uncover tho body, find a clue
and follow in until tho criminals were
run In earth. The talo concluded, the
constable leaned against the alley wall
wrapped in thought. He waa laying
out hii plana, the web was already
boing woven. "I have if he said,
"meet me at the ruins of the old lockup at 8 o'clock aharp, mums the word
and be secret aa the grave wo nro
about to open" and us our R. C. was
turning away he added in a husky
voico "bring along a pookot pistol with
you, three stars, V. O. get the best,
we may have dangerous work ahead of
us." , At 8 o'clock last night the mild
rays of the new moon showed tho form-
of a man reclining againit ono of
the ancient pillars of the ruined lookup. Something bright shone on his
breast) it waa the badge of office, and
it wai on the constable i breast it shone
A few minutes later our R. C. accompanied by a friend appeared on
the soono. They wore both well fortified for the awful ocenssion. The constable disappeared for a few moment!
snd on his return was loaded with a
pick, shovel, axe and dark lantern.
Dividing the implement! nmuig them
they prooeeded noiieleuly by the way
of back street! hnd lanes until they arrived st the scene of the hidden crime
Grasping tlie pickaxelirmlyinhii handi
and bracing himself up tor the first
blow the constable propared to strike.
But ho did'nt, he only winked, the
pickaxe was lowered, the pocket pistol
brought outan in silence and passed from
man to man. Work then commenced
in earnest and in a fow minutes the
body waa hauled out of ita resting
place, the dirt carefully brushed from
the tace aud tho light of the dark lantern turned full on it. Quick aa
thonght the lantern waa dark again
and ten seconds later three dejoctod
looking men without ai much ai saying "good night," turned In different
directions and were aoon out of eight,
Thoy had unearthed a rag baby which
lome ohildren had buried at s mock
funeral the previous dsy.
Christmas Cheer.
Tho prudent housekeeper is making
early preparations for the Xmas festivities, nnd as a coiisonuotico tlio ilrr-
niniid fur everything in the shape ot
fruits, confections, poultry, game, Iish
and lleali nre in extensive demand.
From indications obsorvablo to nnyono
it is evident that the dinner tables
throughout the royal oity, on Xmas
day, will fairly groan under the weight
of gatno and good things thoy will be
loaded with. A casual glnuco nt tlie
counter of nny grocers shop informs
us that tho most expensive condiments,
delicacicH ritul dnintios will also be
found at the Xinns dinner, along with
tho cheaper but more suhatnutinl items
on tho bill of fare. (Inino seouis to bo
in greator demand tlinn any other
kind of meat, and orders much lnrgor
than thero is nny hope of filling have
boen received from Victoria and Vancouvor. The white breasted turkey,
boiled aud served with oyster sauce,
or,roasted aud Btuil'ed with lino herbs
served with cranborry sauco sufficiently
tart to tempt the appetite to greater
exertions, is nlso being eagerly sought
nfter by tho disciples of Epicurus. A
few of tlie old school can be seen daily
wandering from one shop to the other,
uoso tilted just a little higher in tho
air then usual, trying to ferret out a
bird or a haunoh of venison of the proper age to tickle tho educated palate.
"Straws show how the wind blows,"
and those indications toll very clearly
that there will be somo rare old feasting on Christmas day. In the midst
of the feasting nnd in looking ovor the
well covered hoard it is not out of
place lo remember tho poor, and to remember them in deed na well as in
thought.

Wonderful Consistency
EniTon Columbian.—An Albany N.
Y., distillery waa prohibited by law
from allowing its refuse liquids to flow
into the Hudson, because the nuisance
killed the fish: but tho manufacture of
alcoholic poison by tho samo distillery
for the murder of human beings, is
licensed and protected by law. This
is a romarknble case of inconsistency.
It is matched by a case in Chicago,
where the proprietors of a distillery
were prohibited from feeding tho refuse of the distillery to cattle, but
protected by law in their work of
supplying their vile products to thoir
fellow being.. It is surprising to note
how tnudi creator value is placed by
some peoplo upon tho lives of fish and
cattle than upon humun beings.

Editor Columuian: Without wishing to provoke a foolish und unpleasant
correipundeuco iu your paper, Mil.
Bowman foels roluctantiy trailed upon,
in Mr. Bowman's absence, to correct a
fow miistatomonts which appeared in
a letter publiahcd in your weekly issue
of Doc 7th. Then statements wero
to the effect that somo hay nnd limbers
belonging to oue of Mr. Bowman's
neighbors were in the barn at the time
of the fire. There was not at tho time,
nor ever had been any hay in Mr.
Bowman's barn belonging to any other
than himeolf, nor were there any timbers thero belonging to any other person. It is true thero were in the barns
ot the timo ten tons of hay which h id
been mowed and snicked in one of'Mr.
Buwiiian's Holds by Mr. CiimiibeU's
hired man. This waa dono during
MrB. Bowman's temporary abronco.
The fences wore broken down, anrl
the hay moved against tho protest of
the persons left iu charge by Mrs,
Bowman. Thii hay having been cut
and slacked in Mr. Bowman's field, on
Mr. Bowman's land, waa hauled into
the barn by Mis. Bowman's order, aho
having first consulted her lawyer, and
acting by his advice.
It is also at that time Mr. Campb.ll
sent a message to Mrs, Bowm an in
theso words; "Tell Mra. Bowman I
will tear down any fence she builds,
and will get the hay." Mr. Wm.
Campbell however, iB a Justice of the
peace, ao it is to be presumed that
auch littlo liberties are allowed him in
light of his office. All these statements Mn. Bowman ii roady and willing to prove if necessary; meantime,
aa beforo stated, she docs not intend
to be drawn into a disagreeable correspondence,      Anne O, Bowman.
