The Alaska Selsures.
WAsumaTON, Oct. 24.—Tho talk
about s, rupture in the cabinet on
account of the misunderstanding
between Secretary Bayard and At-
torner-General Garland on the Alaska fishery seizures is purest fiction.
Seoretary Bayard authorizes an
emphatic denial of theso reports.
He has recently assorted that this
government has not, through its
diplomatic representatives, assorted
its right to jurisdiction more than
three miles from the Alaska shore.
Ho has intimated that he does not
believe such a claim could bo sustained, and that a similiar claim by
Great Britain to Oanndian waters
will not be conceded. Secretary
Bayard's position being pretty well
known, it has also been seen that
Attorney-General Garland takes
opposite ground, and has maintained
the right of the revenue marine
vessels to make seizures more than
three miles from the Alaskan shore.
The President's only interference
thus far has been to direct the release 'of vessels seized in opposition
to Seoretary Bayard's viows. No
matter how radical the difference of
opinion between the cabinet officers
a confliot of authority is not inevitable. As to the foreign policy and
diplomatic claims of the administration, Mr. Bayard is supreme unless
the President over-rules him, in
which case he would doubtless resign, but this prospect is so remote
that it is not even to be considered
in the light of possibilities. By virtue of his position, Secretary Bayard oan afford to be indifferent to
the views of the Attorney-General,
but the difference is not of a hostile
character, and it is not even apparent that the secretary of state has
provocation for a row or a resignation.
A   Boyal Bailie.
London, Oct. 23.—Early this
morning there was a fearful and exciting battle ii) the Jubilee exhibition at Liverpool. Delmonico, that
most plucky tamer of beasts, has
been exciting the nerves of the visitors for a long time by trifling in
the cage with three big forest lions.
Five more lions of a different kind,
but very large, arrived from Africa
yesterday, were put at once into the
big cage with the three already at
home there. They had no training, but
Delmonico went iu among them, and
thrilled the crowd that filled the
menagerie by an unusually sensational perfarmance. When he had
done Mlle.Kora, his partner, went
in with the lions and took a dog.
This was repeated four times during
the day, and the five new lions were
too much stunned by the huge, noisy
crowd about them and the repeated
visits of tho lady, gentleman and
dog to think of anything else.
Their astonishment had not worn
off, and they were still quiet when
left alone for the night by the attendants at 10 o'clock. Shortly
after midnight, however, the menagerie was filled with frightful roaring and snarling, and the watchman sleeping on the promises rushed
in to findthetiig ironcage rocking, and
eight lions lighting furiously, rolled
up into a huge dark bull from which
blood-stained fur was flying in all
directions. The huge beasts rolled
over and over, dashing madly nt
the sides of the cage and biting
pieces out of each other with a ferocity that was sickening. All, the
sights organized to gratify man's
fondness for fighting would have
seemed tamest child's play in comparison. After a while it became
evident that there were two distinct
sides in the battle, and the new arrival were pitted at unfair odds
against the lions who had been in
possession. The efforts of the wait-
oi's to separate them only inoreased
tlieir fury, and at lost he rushed off
for Delmonico, who was asleep.
The tamer arrived half-clod and
found bis lions bleeding fearfully,
but still fighting. The battle was
narrowing down to a duel between
the two biggest lions, which were
rapidly biting each other to pieces
in the middle of tho cage. Occasionally the brittle became general,
and for u few seconds there would
by a jumljlo of snarling lions, with a
savage crunching of teeth, to tell
how flesh was being torn. The appearance of Delnionioo with a rod-
hot iron produced the desired effeot,
and all but the two chief combatants stopped lighting, and crouched sullenly down,licking their bloody
wounds and snarling encouragement
to tho two loaders in their terrible
light. The hot iron was useless
even when applied to the raw flesh.
The lions responded to tlio burning
sensation only by tearing each
other more fiercely. At last Delmonico, fearing that he should lose
his two greatest actors, took resolutions which would probably not
hare occurred to tiny other  man  if
the existence of tho ontire animal
creation had been threatened. Ho
entered tho cage half-clad as he was
and shut himself in. He next opened a door communicating with the
second cage nnd drovo into it like so
mnny sheep the six lions thnt had
been looking on. Meanwhile the
others lions wore still fighting, although much weaker. Delmonico
attempted to separate them, but
they paid not the slightest attention
to him; nor was the contest finally
given up until one had been   killed.

THE FISEEUY COMMISSION.
Wasuinutox, Oct. 29.—The joint
fishery commission will be in session
in Washington early in November.
The American members are now at the
Arlington Hotel, and Mr. Chamborlain
and Sir Charles Tupper aro expected

The best quarters at the Arlington
have been reserved for them by Minister West. One will occupy the Sumner House and the other the Johnson
House, annexes on eaoh side of the
Arlington.. The ample quarters that

quite a number of persons in their
party.
chamberlain's departure.
London, Oot. 31).— Upon the arrival
of Mr. Chamberlain at Liverpool the
station wns cleared; the public were
not admitted. The station was strongly guarded by policemen and n number of detectives followed Mr. Chamberlain from the station to the dock,
whero ho took the tender for the
steamer Etruria, it being expected an
attack would be made upon him in
the streets. Ho was cheered and
hooted ns ho passed along.
CHANGES IN THE MINISTRY.
London, Oct. 30.—The cabinet will
hold two meetings before Lord Mayor's day, the first on Wednesday next,
at which the subj'ect of taking precautionary measures against riotous demonstrations on the part of the socialists and idle workmen will bo discussed. Rumors arc again current of
changes in the ministry, but nothing
definite is stated as likely to be done
in that direction.
Tho Prince of Wales has rented a
house at Brightwood for his daughters,
the Princesses Louise nnd Maudo, who
will be brought from Copenhagen to
spend their season of convalescence
near home.
IN   INVESTIGATION. BY THE  SOBRANJE.
Sofia, Oct. 31.—A largo section of
the deputies has decided to arraign M,
Karaveloff nnd other prominent Bulgarians before the Sobranje to unswer
for their connection with tho deposition of Princo Alexander. Their arraignment will create a great sensation
Und probably result in the development of startling disclosures, implicating persons hitherto unBuspeoted.
t'.Oll SAVE IRELAND.
Cork, Oct. 31.—Tho streets were
literally packed with people to-day
when O'Brien arrived in the custody
of the police. A strong police force,
fully armed, was disposed in tho vicinity of tho prison to prevent any attack
on tho prisoner's escort, nnd a force
equally strong was stationed about tho
railway station. O'Brien refused to
voluntarily lenvo the car wheft the
train arrived hero, and compelled the
polico to use force to remove him. He
was- accompanied to prison by the
mayor of Cork and followed by a tremendous crowd. Tlio vice-chairman
of tbo poor law guardians attempted
to mako a speech, but the police prohibited him from doing bo at the
point selected by him. He therefore
removed to another place, followed by
the crowd, and delivered his address
without tuolcBtntion. Tho crowd then
paraded tlio streets, singing "God save
Irelnhd.

various cities. This will be the rate to
Philadelphia, and the rato to Baltimore and Washington will be 2E cents.
To these points rates of both companies
will be identical. Throughout tha

Union rate hereafter will be 60 instead
of 60 cents.

'Taesaar t'ttkea. Nov. 1, 1881.
The Week (Toronto) thinks Sir
KichardOortwright'sIngersollspecch
on commercial union is a "singularly
masterful treatment of the subject,"
nnd one of the most important public declarations that has been made
for some time. While frankly stating the difficulties standing in the
way of the new proposal, Sir Richard is of opinion that it is the best
raiuedy that has yet been proposed
for the embarrassments with which
this oountry is beset, It is the less
of two evils, one of which miist be
chosen. Sir Richard is opposed to
making it a party question; but the
Week thinks that if he declares in
favor of it earnestly it will be accepted by the liberal party, and
will be the plank upon which that
party will be carried into power.
The people of Comox have, apparently, determined to choose a
resident of the district as their representative in the legislature. This
is a wise decision. There are instances when it might be considered
judicious to elect an outsider. In
some cases it might be difficult to
find a local man with such qualifications as would fit him for an efficient legislator, and there are to be
found men outside tbe district whose
experience is such as to make them
much more successful than one who
has not hod similar advantages.
Bat the contrast ought to be very
striking before it would justify u
constituency in preferring an outsider to a resident. In the case of
Oomox, we have not a sufficient
knowledge oi the abilities of her
local men to compare them with
outsiders. Our knowledge of the
record and qualifications of Mr.
Humphreys is sufficient, however,
to justify the assertion that the local
material must be wretchedly poor
indeed if the people of Oomox would
be acting in accordance with the interests af the constituenoy in choosing him as their representative. To
a considerable degree a constituency
is judged by its representative. If
he happens to be a fool, one is apt
to conclude that those who elected
him are fools also, If he belongs to
ths class of men known as machine
politicians, and is without principle,
hit constituents are judged to belong
to tile same class. A constituency
is supposed to put forward as its
representative the very best material
within its reach; and if the representative is unworthy, those whom
he represents may expect to be regarded us even more unworthy. As
a matter of fact, however, the representative is not always entitled to as
muoh respect asamajority of thosewho
eleoted him. There are to be found
everywhere persons anxious to wear
cheap honors, and constantly on the
lookout for an opening. These men
are not troubled with principle, any
more than they are troubled with
principal, and they will swallow any
doctrine or any pledge that'may
whitewash them in the eyes of those
whom they wish to deceive. Such
men ought to be avoided* and
shunned by every honest constituency.
Some leading French papers express the Opinion that the signing of
the conventions between Great Britain and France relative to the Suez
canal and the New Hebrides Islands
will result in the establishment of
very cordial relations between the
two countries. The Suez canal is to
be kept open in time of war, but
no power is to be allowed to engage
in hostile demonstrations at or near
iti entrance or anywhere along its
course, and the embarkment or dis-
emburkment of war material or
troops shall be forbidden. The responsibility of enforcing thene regulations il laid upon Egypt; but if
tbe khedivo finds himself unable to
maintain the convention, an appeal
is to be made to Turkey who, with
the signatory powers, must respond
in such a way as to compel obedience. If it be true that Russia,
Germany and Austria have signified
their approval of this agreement between Britain and France, the thing
may be made to hold water. It is
to be feared, however, that the convention may prove to be merely a
fair-weather concern. If a great
war Should, unhappily, involve some
of the mott powerful nations of
Europe, one of them will probably
find it to her interest to seize the
canal and hold it in spite of conventions. It has been too much a
habit to repudiate irksome treaties
in time of war, and declare that
the new oircumstances brought into
existence by new relations were
■uch as to dissolve all previous entanglements. In times of peace the
signatory powers might agree to
compel obedience to treaties, but in
times of war conjoint notion is some-
times quite out of the question,
and tin strong powers will drive
whole regiments through treaties
th—i tund in the way of their am-
bitiotts deiigns. It may be that
the settlement of these two matters
will prepare the way for a better
understanding between Great liiit-
ain and France, There is certainly
.room for improvement in the rela-
ttont brtwora these two countries;
but/the French are ao impulsive and
to fickle, and their jealousy of Britain it so deep-rooted, that one cannot  hope  for a dote and abiding
friendship; It is not probable that
France and Great Britaiit will ever
engage in war, but it is doubtful if
they will ever become such cordial
allies as they were during the Crimean war.

After all he was a very harmless

He was'poor. Oh, very poor, evidently.

which stood near his bed they heard

"They searched the mattress and the
cupiroards and found more napoleons.
Altogether 100,000 francs were stored

The following is from the September

■wived a Scalleriitg tribute from other
delegations. But all these compliment!

Counting ihe HciUtcrlim votes, 405 ballots had been cast, anil i'!l:l were necessary to a choice; only 11 votes mora
were needed to make n nomination.
"A profound stillness suddenly fell

it was only a question of seconds who

and reported a change ot' four Ohio
votes from (lirrso to Lincoln. There
was a moment's pause,—a teller wovc.l

announced the iroinliirilinn to' t're

Iu the convention the Lincoln rhvr.
now became an inundation. Amid the
wildest hurrahs delegation nftcr did 'gallon changed their vote to the victor.
"A graceful custom prevails in orderly American conventions, thnt the
chairman of tho vanquished delegation
is first to groct the nominee with n
short address of parly fealty and a
promise of party support. Mr. I'varts,
tire spokesman for New York, essayed
promptly to perform this cbur.imits
office, but was delayed a while by lire
cntliusiusui and contusion. Thc-ihii at
length subsided, und the presiding officer announced that on the third ballot
Abraham Lincoln, ol Illinois, received
H<l I votes, and 'is selected us your candidate for president of the United
Slates.' Then Mr. I'varts, in a voice uf
unconcealed emotion, but with admirable dignity and touching eloquence
speaking for Seward and for New Yor k,
moved to mako the nomination unanimous.
NATURAL CAS FIBLD3.
Discouraging Result, from Welts Drilled
la Western States.
The sinking of a largo number of test
holes for natural gas and oil in various
parts ol Illinois, Missouri, Kansas, Iowa,
Texas, Colorado, Arkansas and Nobrn-ka
will determine ill the near future the
extent and value ot these deposits.
Thus iar the results in most of the
stales named have not been encouraging. Outside of the twenty or more
countiesin Indiana, south of the Wall ish
river and. west of Indiana, nothing
worth mentioning has been discovered.
And if tbe opinions of experts are
worthy of consideration, the productive
territory in Indiana turd Ohio has been
quite thoroughly determined, Outside
the territory mentioned, the Trenton
limestone either comes too near the
surface or the other conditions whicli
appear to be necessary for the finding of
large quantities of gas do not exist. A
considerable amount of drilling in Kentucky has failed of its object, with the
possible exception of the recently reported strike twenty-five miles down
the Ohio river from Louisville.
From various parts of 'lliuois, particularly tho central portion, come almost
daily reports of the discovery of natural
gas in shallow wells ranging from 50 to
am feet in diqitb. Whether this gas

the' wells at Litchfield the drill has

Illinois,
'ibr results In Missouri have not been
any inure encouraging than in Illinois.
In the southwestern part of the state
five or six deep wells hnve turned nut

nolably St. Charles, Mexico, I'ldmyra
und Sudnlio—test holes are now Ir 'ing

In eastern  K nsas there are several
filac s where natural gas is utilized for
icaiing and uianufao'iirim purposes.
The Colorado oil fields have been
worked in a mild way for nearly fifteen

Norwegian Families.
The Canadian &t:rt!f'e(Loiidoii,Eiig.)
of the 13th Sept., refers to the establishment of tho Norwegian colony at
Squamish River, and says: "The
party forming this latest colony went
out under the auspices of Mr. Dyko,
the agent of the Canadian government
at Liverpool. They left the Mersey
in May last and decided to settle on
Squamish River, some 30 miles north
of Vancouver on the mainland. So
well satisfied are they with their location that they have sent for their
families, and theso sailed last week.
One of tho leaders is this week returning to Norway, and will rotnain thore
during the winter, returning in the
early spritm with Iris relatives and a
largo party of friends."
The Fraser River Salmon Pack.
Although tho exact returns of the
salmon pack by the canneries on tlie
Fraser River havo not boon fulfy completed up to the present, still enough
is known to make public tho fact that
the total pack will he iu tho neighborhood of 132,000 cases. Jt is thought
it will possibly run slightly over theso
figures bnt it is not expected to run
under them. It is estimated that tho
wholo pack, with the exception of
about 10.000 oases, hns left tho canneries either for tlio eastern provinces or
for Great Britain. Of tho cases yet to
be shipped, Ewen's cannery has abuut
5,000 and the balance is scattered
among the various canneries along the
river. One of our leading packers
said to-day that another week would
see every case of this season's pack nf
salmon clear of the river.
Improvements to Navigation.
Speaking to a Winnipeg repnrtor on
his return from this province, Mr.
Perley, Dominion engineer, said ho
had " visited the mouth of the Fraser,
where a heavy work is being carried
on tending to enclose tho Bouth channel. Not only hns tho north channel
been straightened lint deepened a
couple of fcot as well, which is it great
advantage to tho tiavlgsliqtt, of the
lower Frasor to Westminster." Ue
said he had also " made urrniigeuieuts
for the commencement of work fnr the
removal of the Nicklo rock in Nanaimo
harb.r. This work will be similar to
the removal of thu Hell Goto rock at
the entrance In New York harbor.
The Nicklo rock is about 1C0 feet lung
by CO feet wide, and 0 feet under
water at low tide. It is proposed to
remove sufficient of tho rock to leave
18 feet at low water, and this will be
done by drilling and the use of nitroglycerine. The work will take nearly
three years tn accomplish, and will cost
in the neiithbnrhood of (50,000.

IWorc T. 0. Atkinson, 1'. M.
.Jennie, an Indian woman, charged
with stealing a watch and chain and
with hooping a house of ill-fame. Sho
pleaded mrt guilty '.rr the first charge,
but acknowledged tho Ifiilh of Iho latter.
l'Yodoriok Melrose, sworn, Bnid: I
went to tho prisoners house at 0 o'clock
in the morning; I undressed and wont
to bed, leaving iny cost and vest in
tho kitchen. My watoh and ohain was
in my vest pocket. Whon 1 got up
and dressed I found theso urticles
missing nud asked the woman for
them, but sho doniod having them. I
went out, got a policeman and took
him to tbo house; Jennie told him she
had the watch and chain and that I
had given it toner and she would tint
givo it up. I then went to tho police
station and informed the chief, who
went tn the hntue and got my property.
Chief Devlin testified to arresting
the ttpman and finding the watoh and
chain in her houso. Jennie told the
chief Melrose had given hor the articles mentioned.
His Honor said as regarded the
watch stealing esse he put as muoh reliance in what the woman said as he
did iu llio mau's statement The
complainant went to her house without
money and no doubt it was possible
he hud given her the watch. He would
therefore dismiss this charge.
As to tho chargo of keeping a house
of ill-fame His Honor thought it was
inconsistent to punish the woman and
not tho frequenters, the latter should
bo punished also. After Bumming up
tho evidence a duo of $50, or in default throe months in jail, was imposed.
Mr. Farpetus Boilean, Ottawa, Bays:—
"I was radically cured of pileB, from
which I had been Buffering for over two
months, by the use of Thomas' Eclectric
Oil. I used it both internally and ox-
ternally, taking it in small doses before
meals and on retiring to bed. In one
week I was Clival, and hnvo had no
trouble since. I believe it saved my
lifo."

Maple Ridge; Nov. 1.—The "Now
Era" is apparently the harbinger of a
new ora in temporanco reform at tho
Maplo Ridge. Tho membership of
the lodge is increasing largely, the probabilities are that beforo next Spring,
few if any of the settlers will bo found
displaying tlio banner of king alcohol,
by way of a suffusion of redness in the
faco. By tho way, the noso is usually
selected for carrying the banner and
when tho soldier is loyal to his king
(alcohol) the redness of the nose presents a bluish tint. There is no other
monarch so mindful of his subjects aB
thia, mid fow subjects are moro loyal
to a loathesouio vice than his victims.
But hia majesty must send a large
detachment of his army hero if lie
manages to stem the tide now setting
in against his powor. One of those
pleasant gatherings which occasionally
dispel the monotony of country life,
tcok placo nt the rosidonoo of tho late
Mr. Penberely, 0. E, Upwards of 50
the neighbors met to bid tiio family farewell, on Wodncsduy evening. After

Rev. Mr. Hemlaw was called upon to
occupy the chair. Mr. Murray was
then called on to rend a farewell address to Mrs. Penderely and family,
signed by all presont. Miss Penberely nt tho sumo time wns inndo tho
recipient of a gift in tho shape of a
