LAST MfiHT-S DESPATCHES.
THANKS TO CLEVELAND.
Richmond, Ta., Dec. 30—The Catholics of Richmond last night held a
mass meeting in celebration ol the
pope's jubilee. A resolution was
adopted thanking Cleveland for the
honor which he had paid the holy
father on the occasion of his golden
jubilee.   i
TOKDS AHKANOED TOR.
Paeis, Dac. 30.—It is stated that
the Panama Canal Company has arranged with the Credit Lyonaise to
provide the company with funds until
the issue of their new obligations.
THE COMING   WAS.
London, Deo. 30.—The conviction
is rapidly solidifying that the already
slrained relations of the various European powers with one another are fast
becoming unbearable and tbatirksome
ties and barriers must soon be swept
aside with tlie inevitable consequence
of bloodshed. The Standard, discussing the situation in an exceedingly
serious strain, concludes that there
must be'an armed struggle on the continent in the near future or else there
must be o n the par t of t he weaker power.
an abject submission to the will of the
stronger. Nothing in the nature of a
middle course, tbe Standard believes,
will suffice, while a continuance of the
present state of things must necessarily
lead to the bankruptcy of the leading
European powers both in bone and
sinew and Unance. Sir A. Paget.the
British ambassador at Vienna, who
has been in London for several days,
paid a visit to the foreign office this
afternoon and spent three hours in
consultation with the various prominent officers of that department, ono
hour of which time was devoted to a
private conference with Lord Salisbury. The ambassador is on the eye of
his return to Vienna and will bear with
him to-his post of duty important dispatches particularizing the views of
tbe British government on the presont
crisis. These documents are understood to convey to the Austrian govern
ment an intimation that England will
support the Triple alliance against
Russia, but they also stipulate that the
integrity of Turkey must remain inviolate.
THIS MOBSINfl'S DESPATCHKH.
VESSEL BOBNED.
SanFkancisoo, Deo. 31.—Early this
morning the bark Charleston arrived
from England, having on board the
captain and seven of the crew of the
German bark Johanna, burned off
Cape Horn on Sept. 26th. The other
nine of the crew were lost.
A OHASTLt DISCOVERY.
Pierke, Dak., Dec 31.—A most
sensational discovery waa made yesterday at Uio ranch of John Lablant, a
Sioux half-breed. The ranch was a
stopping place in the Black Hills for
travelers some years ago. A few days
since Lablant waa detecting stealing
cattle and the aheriff and posse proceeded to the ranch but found Lablant
had escaped. In one of the rooms was
found a trap-door hung on hinges so
that it would drop when a cord was
pulled. The cord extended from a
bolt under the floor to Lablant'a room.
Beneath the door was a cave, which,
on being examined, revealed tha skeletons of twelve grown human beings
and two smaller ones. The ranch ia in
a lonely apot on Banks Creek, 10 miles
from any human habitation.
HONORING COLUMBUS.
Madrid, Deo. 31.—Spain has invited representatives of the U.S. and
all Spanish American republics to cooperate in the Christopher Columbus
celebration. All geographical societies
are invited to send delegates.
CRUSHED BETWEEN SAW LOOS.
Fort Bragg, Cal., Deo. 31.—John
Beyer was instantly killed in Fort
Bragg woods last evening. He wss
alone on tho side of the hill sawing
logs. A loose log lying above him
was shaken loose, by a jar from the
log he had just sawed off, and rolled
down upon him catching him between
tho two. lt required ihreo jairkscrews
to lift the log from his mangled remains.   Ho was aged 19 years. ';    '
THIS AFTERNOON'S DESPATCHES.
ADMISSION to the union,
Washington, D.C.Deo. 31.—The
annexation of the northern part of
Idaho to Washington Territory is exciting somo discussion here. It is
pretty well settled now that Washington
Territory and Dakota will be admitted
into the Union after the next presidential election, and nu act will, in all
probability be passed at this session of
congress providing for that. Whother
the northern part of Idaho is to be annexed to Washington Territory is a
question whoso settlement will naturally preclude any aotion upon the admission of Washington Territory.
The delegate from Idaho is opposed to
the annexation of the panhandle of his
territory to Washington Territory, and
Senator Stewart announces he is opposed to the division of Idaho. Senator Mitchell, of Oregon, says he will
vote according to the wishes of the
people in that territory; he thinka it is
a matter which they should settle
themselves. If the people in the
northern part of Idaho preferred
being annexed to Washington Territory lie would voto for it, but ho would
not voto for the destruction of a whole
territory by annexing the southern
portion of it to Nevada.
A CLAIM JUMPER LYNCHED.
Pittsburg, Pa., Deo. 31.—Tha
report comes from the Blade Hills
that John Jennings, a former prominent and wealthy resident of Westmoreland county, was hanged not long
ago by a vigilance committee of miners.
Six montha ago he went into the Book
Hills to prospeot for gold and coming
across a claim that aeemed to hav.
been started, jumped it. Soma weeks
afterward the original owner returned
and in a quarrel over the property Jen*
nings is alleged to have shot and killed
the man and for which he wu lynched
by the infuriated miners.

A NEW ELDORADO.
Sait Feanoisoo, Dec, 81;—The V.'
S. man-of-war, Iroquois, haa arrived in
port after a six yean cruise in the Pacific Ocean, looking after the Intacasts
of the U. S. The Iroquois readied
Topolobampo on Deo. 1st, and Captain
Leary, commander of the Iroquois, reports that there are about 160 colonists
living in tents, there being but one or
two permanent buildings in the place. -
Upon the land cultivated, watermelons
and awe'et potatoes were growing
.luxuriantly, hut little else waa cultivated. Gonzales City, ElSuffraigo and
Mendono were examined. "In all
these places," said Oapt Leary, "we
were satisfied of the richness of the
soil and its capabilities for supporting
a large population. Tha countty ia a
paradise. Without irrigation it will
produce two or three crops a year,
while with irrigation there is not a
month in which crops cannot be planted and gathered. The climate ii
magnificent, never reaching extremes
of temperature. The harbor of Tom.
lobampo Bay ia one of the finest. The
condition of those remaining waa far
from being distressing though supplies
had grown short during k recant
period. There were none who were
suffering or appeared te be in want
I made the offer, as I wu directed, to
remove sny of those who wen desirous of leaving, but not a single one
accepted the invitation, and aU; tit.
pressed themselves u satisfied tot*-.
main where they were." The statements of Oapt. Leary are entirely con* n
tradictonr to thoSe wWchhajebeen
frequently telegraphed, i ....-,— —

1887.
This day closes the year 1887.
It has been a year without any conspicuously remarkable event, if wo
may except tho Queen'a jubilee.
That was an affair that challenged
attention throughout the known
world. There is no nation with a
fame and an influence so far-reaching us that of Great Britain. Her
subjects may bu found in every
corner of the globe, and her ships of
war and of commerce swarm upon
every sea. It has always been the
policy of Great Britain to protect
her subjects wherever they may be
found; hence her power has made
itself felt for and near. Tbo jubilee
of the reign of Britain's best Queen,
therefore, came to be known everywhere, and it was made the occasion
of immense enthusiasm, endless congratulations, and numerous costly
gifts. Every true Briton will join
in the hope that our queen may continue to grace tho throne of the
greatest nation on the face of the
earth. The year has been almost
wholly free from war. No conflict
of importance has taken place. The
attitude of the nations of Europe
has not been such as to give promise of continued peace, but an
actual outbreak has, fortunately,
beenavoided by careful management.
The leading powers are just now
watching each other with anxious
solicitude, armed to the teeth for
any contingency. Bulgarian affairs
seem t* be no nearer a solution now
than they were at the beginning of
the year. The sad affliction which
has fallen upon the crown prince of
Prussia has come to be another disturbing element among the nations,
for if the throne should pass into
the hands of bis son, nobody knows
what eccentricities the young man
might be tempted to endulge in.
Although disturbed like the rest by
the unsettled condition of public
affiurs, Great Britain has enjoyed a
year of peace and prosperity at
home and abroad. The one great
political question that has occupied
the attention of her statesmen is
the pacification of the Irish people.
Ireland is still employing every
legitimate means (and some that are
not legitimate) for the purpose of
forcing the imperial parliament to
grant her local government. Par-
nell and his party have found in
Gladstone a powerful ally who continues to adhere imflinchingly to
his programme of home rule. The
old liberal party is divided against
itself, and there seems to be no
reasonable hope of healing the
breach. While Gladstone lives, he
will lead the liberal party. When
he dies, it is quite possible a new
leader will be found who may bring
together the unionists and liberals,
making a party against whioh tlie
tories would find themselves entirely helpless. Gladstone will not
recede from his present scheme of
home rule, which is objectionable to
the. unionists; but a new leader could,
and it is quite possible the scheme
could be so modified under these
circumstances as no secure its adoption and at the same time satisfy a
very large majority of Irishmen.
On this continent there have been
no conspicuous political developments. There was a general election for the Dominion parliament
in February, but it resfiltcd in no
change in the government or polioy
ofthe country. The conservative
party carried the country with a
majority considerably reduced, it is
true, but amply sufficient for all purposes. In the United States the
state elections have not been of such
a oharacter as to indicate clearly
what will be the result of the presidential contest next year. It is
pretty certain that Cleveland will
be the democratic candidate, but it is
by no means clear that Blaine will
receive the republican nomination.
The fight promises to be a lively
one, with the chances slightly in
favor of the democrats. The principal question between tbe parties is
whether the customs tariff shall be
reduced. In Oanada two questions
of polioy have been prominent during the year: (1) the question of disallowance, and (2) the question of
commercial union. There is n widespread feeling thoughout the country tbat the veto power of the federal
government has been exercised in
such a way as seriously to endanger
confederation, and itis proposed so to
change it as to secure greater independence to theprovinciallegislatures.
Commercial union has occupied a
great deal of attention during the
year, and some resolution bearing
upon it may be looked for during
tha coming session. Oanada has
enjoyed a fairly good year in commercial affairs. The crops in Manitoba have been exceptionally large,
the wheat harvest aggregating nearly 12,000,000 bushels, doming to
our own province, we find the year
to have been one of exceptional
prosperity. Crops have been good,
and the market for all kinds of produce has been very aotive. The
population of the province hu been
very largely increased, Several
new towns of importance have sprung
Up, and the leading cities have grown
wonderfully. The growth and improvements in Westminster have
been imprecedented. lt has been to
this eity anna of brick building,
and our blocks are second to none in
the province. The outlook for the
future is very bright every where, and

Better for the Boys.
Tho admission tlmt prohibition does
not entirely prohibit is no argument
against prohibition. It docs prohibit,
and at tho right placo. Tho dealer
who is compelled by virtue of tho
sweeping prohibitory law, to which
ponaltios are attraohed, and which
penalties are enforced when tbe crime
is brought; home and fastened, may
and will sell to confirmed drunkards,
but what is he going to do with the
boys and young men who are not confirmed drunkards? He dare not sell
to them, and much loss entice them
into hia place. The claws of the hyena
are pared and its teeth extracted,
Aud, besides, it is not constantly in
the way of the boy. The gilded saloon, with its light, and warmth, and
glitter an show, la not on every corner,
furnishing him a more than comfortable lounging place. There is no
{rlace open where he can hear the
augh, the song, the jests born of rum,
which amused him more and more as
he heard them. To get rum he must
go in search of it, and he must undergo the severest kinds of test before
the seller dare commit himself to the
chances of furnishing it to him.
The rum-soaked wretch who must
have it can always get it because his
appetite seals his lips and makes him
an unwilling witness, but the boy is
not so prudent.
 «■	
He Died Through Drink.
What of it) That ia a common occurrence, more than four thousands
of such deaths occur every hour, sixty-
six every minute, one every second,
in these Uuited States. We are used
to seeing them, hearing of them, reading about them, why should we be
startted at the announcement tbat
another has occurred) If it had been
death from cholera or yellow fever, it
would be atartling and fill us with
alarm; but it is not from these it is
only death from drink. It is true that
drink slays moro than cholera, moro
than yellow fover, moro than both
combined; but it slaya more deliberately, and solects its victims moro ex-
tendedly, and is an every day occurrence. We have become familiar with
slaughter by drink by seeing it going
on constantly in our midst. It ceases
to fill us with surprise, and only at-
tracta our special attention when it
occurs in our own families or ia a
specially aggravated caso among our
own neighbors.
Prohibition.
Prohibition has achieved its final
triumph in the highest tribunal in the
United States. Thia settles the legality of the prohibition principle, and it
now remains with the people themselves to choose between whisky or no
whisky. Our own state supreme court
has decided in favor of the local-
option principle, and no reasonable
man can ask more, Now let the decent, law-abiding, whisky-hating people work up the temperance sentiment
in their own locality until thoy win
over a majority of the voters nnd then
kick the saloon-keeper out. He has
exhausted every legal quibble and device that ill-got money and prostituted
legal talent could suggest, and he now
finds himself without a leg to stand on.
Give him no dime, and give him no
quarter.—Am, Ex,
Burning Dp.
A patient said to a physician: "Doctor I must have some kind of stimulant; I am cold and alcohol warms me."
"Precisely," answered the doctor. See
here, tills stick is cold, (taking up a
stick of wood from the wood box and
tossing it into the fire,) now it is
warm. But is the stick benefited)"
The sick man watched the wood first
send out little puffs of smoke and then
burst into a flame, and then replied:
"Of course it ia not. It is burning
itself." "And so are you, when you
warm yourself with alcohol." Young
men, you who drink this burning,
damming stimulant in secret, be not
deceivers or deceived. It is stealing
your brains; destroying your heart,
and ruining your precious souls.
How She Knows It.
Tho Hon. J. B. Finch relates the
following story : " How is your father getting on now?" I aaid to a little
daughter of a man formerly a drunkard, hut whom, aome montha before
I had persuaded to sign the pledge.
" He is getting along very well," was
the reply. " Has he kept his pledge!"
" 0 yes," she joyfully replied. -'Are
you sure he has)" " Yos.sir, I am quite
sure." '.'How is it that, you are so
positive on this point)" I asked.
"Why," she said, and her face was
radiant with joy, "he never abuses
mother any more; we hare always
plenty to eat; and he never takes my
shoes off to pawn them for a drink now.
This is why I know it, sir."
A minister, with a rather florid complexion, had gone into the shop of a
barber, one of his parishoners, to be
shaved. The barber was addicted to
heavy bouts of drinking, after which
his hand was, ill consequence, unsteady
at his work. In shaving the minster
he inflicted a eut, sufficiently deep to
cover the lower part of the face with
blood. The minster turned to the
barber and said, in a tone of solemn
severity. "You see, Thomas, what
comes of taking too muoh drink."
"Ay," replied Thomas, "itmak'sthe
skin verro tenner."
Perfeot Hair
Indicates a natural and healthy condition of the scalp, and of tho glands

When, in consequence) uf ago aud disease, the hair becomes weak, thin, and
gray, Ayer's Hair Vigor will strengthen,
it, restore ita original color, promote its
rapid and vigorous growth, and impart
to it the lustre and frcshnoas of youth.
I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for a
long time, and am convinced of its
value. When I was 17 years of age my
hair began to turn gray. 1 commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
the good effects it produced. It not
only restored tho color to my hair, but
so stimulated its growth, that I have
now moro hair than ever before.—

A Close Call.
Five Chinamen, who live in a amall
houso on Front atreet, came within an
ace of ending their lives laat night.
The night waa oold,and, not having
a stove, they lighted a ooal fire in an
old oil ban and then laid down to
steep. About three o'olock thia morning a Chinaman living next door had
his attention attracted by groans,
which issued apparantly from hia
neighbors apartments. Thinking all
waa not right ho proceeded to the room
where tho Chinamen wero, and, to his
surprise, found them almost dead from
the inhalation of the gases from the
coal. Without lose of time the poor
oreaturea were taken into the open
air and after considerable exertion
were restored to sensibility.
Flensing en Cntanerelnl Italon,
An Ottawa despatch states that Mr.
Sanford Fleming, O.M.G., at laat
nlght'a meeting of the Imperial Federation League, speaking on the relation
of commercial union to imperial fed,
oration, aaid if commercial union with
the neighboring republic could be had
on terms favorable to Canada, Cona*
diana would welcome it with aatisfac
tion. All deaired free commercial relatione with that country. They desired it not only in Canada but in
every British possession. Throughout
every part of the British empire there
existed most cordial aud friendly feelings towards the Unitod States, and
the universal desire was that such feelings might be perpetuated. Such
being the cue, the commercial union
movement which had boen brought
under notice was much too narrow in ita
aim. They wanted one broader and
farther reaching. It might well be
aaked, why should not commercial
union embrace every flag under the
British flag! (Applause). Thb consideration of commercial union would
in no way interfere with the federation
of tho British possessions. It might,
however, tend to widen the discussion
and influence the consideration of a
greater question—tho union of the two
great English spooking nations. (Ap
plause).
