avenues leading up to the Arch of

asphslt in Paris is very slippery,

reajpli January
M, last.
Stanley is' preparing tor another
expedition into the heart of Africa,
and this time, ulso, he goes upon
a mission 'of philanthropy. Since
the day' this young man unexpect-
-dlpajMabsevted Dr. Livingstone in
the interior,of. the dark continent,
his oareer 'has been a most remarkable one. It has been romantic in
the Sttrenie, and. full enough of
adventure to satisfy the wildest
dreams of the wildest fancy. Everyone will hopB for the success of
Stanley's latest venture. If it
should fail by any means, the hero
on whose, behalf it is undertaken
will probably fall a victim to the
cruelty of his enemies, but he will
hardly regret it more than Stanley
himself. We need not speak of
failure, howevor, for it-is scarcely
possible. to presume that the great
African explorer wouM fail!
A MnclvNeefleo* Work.
A .peLitiiUn has been circulated in
this city asking the government to
construct, ji road between this city
and the North Arm settlement on
the FSsery The petition has re-
wived, the signatures of about 180
persons lisjtw bilyjand among
these names may be found a majority of our most prominent citizens.
The construction of this road is a
work': which has more than once
been advocated in these columns.
During summer the Nortii Arm settlement-may be reached without
much trouble by steamer, but it
does not take much frost to close
the north' arm of the Fraser, and
then .the settlement is almost com
pletely cutoff from this oity. We
hope the government will be able
this yenr to make provision for the
constructionofthisroad. Unquestionably this peninsula will be the scene,
during'the coming season, of such
activity as was never before known
in this part of the country, and as
the government still holds a considerable quantity .of land;between
Buriirf Inlet, aad;' the .north arm
of tlfc fraser, 4h«t land will become
valuable-land the construction of the
propossflgftad wilf«d to its value
and hettt io place it in tho market.
In colinjrlyinf with the prayer of the
petition, therefore, the government
will be enriching its own possessions
and at the same time building a
road whioh is greatly needed.
;.'   Is It Genuine?
The latest declaration of independence, bjfcjie Xojfnto Hail seems to
have produced oraiast as much of a
sensation" asthe first.' While the
honesty qf ;tW<,'deel*»tioa is freely
questioned by many people, especially by those who do not see political issues through its spectacles,
there are some who think that the
disagreement between the Conserva-,
tive liAmM'its organ' ia a real
disajnVSiiWiUand that tie professed
independence of the organ is genuine. Among these is Uie Week, itself an independent journal whose
principal contributor is Prof. Gold-
win Smith. The Week hot only professes to have confidence in the sincerity of tbe Maits new departure,
but welcomes it aa ah evidence of
the gwwth of independent sentiment in the country. It regards
the proprietors of the Mail aa sensible business people who would not
be guilty of the folly of adopting a
course in which they could not
count upon receiving support. Tlie
inference is, therefore, that the pub
lie mind is going ih the direction of
political independence, an inference
which, if correct,'should bring solid
satisfaction to all who put country
before .party. Among the candidate! spoken °' fer tl'e co,ning con-
teat argllaWsl'of^kuowa independence and ability, such as Goldwin
Smith, . Hon. Wm. Macdougall,
M^or^*tf(r^^iT/uT»)», Md
other*.* vWlese are "the ineh who
ought W receive popular support, because they are free from party entanglements, and are, consequently,
free to support auch ineaaureB, and
only Batch measures, as they deem to
be in *the pablio interest. They
may be counted on, therefore, to
oppose - all trickery and corruption
in the administration of public
affairs, and all measures and schemes
whose object is the advancement of
SU'WWWM delated from
the power of party should encourage this spirit of indepeiidence, and
they shedd also endeavor as far
as possible to secure as candidates
persona -whose patriotism la above
their party allegiance.

The Nn Om Hall.—The following is the .full text of tho resolu

counell lut Monday evening in reference to the proposed city hall: Moved
by hia worship the mayor, seconded
by Obanclllor Curtis, and resolved,
That this municipal council having on
Oct. 4th, 18M, passed a resolution
asking the govornment for a grant of
the site of thi old gaol, containing
thre9-fiftha of an acre, and on the 9th
of November, 1886, the conncil having received an official letter refusing
their request, be it therefore resolved
that the government be respectfully
uked to reconsider the matter for the
following reasons: That after having
granted uid squares to tho oity, the
government desired a suitable site fur
a new gaol, conrt houae, eto., and it
wu found that tho only practicable
site wm two reserves on Sinicco streot
containing 71 acres, and although
these reserves had been among those
handed to the city for railway purposes, the counoil on application of
the government conveyed them back
for the purpose indicated; that
through the apparent failure of tho
nilway acta giving the O. P. R. power
to run branch lines; the council had
to purchase the right of way at largely
increased prices, and find that it will
take the whole of tho valuable squares
tojpay for the same as well u tho
council's share of the bonus of -37,-
600; that the only aultable site tor a
town hall, lock-up, quarters for polioe, eto., is the present lot on which
tho old gaol stsnds. For this and
other reasons the oouncil respectfully
uk the governmeut to reconsider
their refuul to give the council a

The Murder at Ladner's.
FURTHER •MTIOUUli  OF THE NOMIILE
TtMIIY,
As far u can yet bo learned, no
due hu been obtainod to tho perpe-
tnton of the dastardly murder of
Harris at Ladner's. Coroner Trew, of
this oity, held an inquest on the body
yesterday afternoon, and from the
evidence there given the following
facts are obtained: The murdered
man lived by himself in a oabin abont
a quarter of a mile from his nearest
neighbors and about fire or six miles
from the Landing, On Friday last
he oame down to the Landing, pre
sumably on business matters, and wu
aeen going home alone that afternoon
for tho last time alive. The fact uf
thero being no stir around his cabiu.
for tho next two or three days, to-
Sether with the appearance of his little
og at his neighbor's house, led them
to decide all was not right; and after
some consultation among themselves,
two of thom, Freund snd Lee, derided to go over and investigate. They
found the door locked with two padlocks, one inside the hasp and the
other outside, and both
FASTENED SECURELY
in the staple. Stooping down, one of
them looked through a small opening
in the bottom of the door and ssw the
body lying on the floor. They immediately set off in search of Constable
Green, who, returning with them,
broke down the door. They found
Harris lying on the floor near the
stove with a deep aie-cut in the back
of his neck, another in tho throat, the
head being almost severed from the
body. There were alao two smaller
wounds on the side nf the head, a
part of the ear having been out off,
Baok of the door stood an axe clogged
with blood and hair. No signs of any
struggle wero found, und it appeared
that the murderer had struck his victim while he waa in the act of putting
a atick of wood into the stove. The
house had been thoroughly ransacked.
Harris's watch had been taken, and
his papers were
STB.1WH ALI, ABOUT IHE BOOM.
No clue could be obtained to the murderer, and after a verdict of wilful
murder had been obtained Coroner
Trew handed the cue over to Offioer
Moresby and the polioe authorities,
who are at present in Ladner's making
further investigations. The body was
brought up to this city about 0 o clock
In the evening by the tug Senator, and
wu taken this morning to the Oddfellows' burying ground for interment,
the deceased being an Oddfellow. The
following residents uf Ladner's acted
a. pall-bearers: Wm. McKee, Hicks,
Bain, P. Kirkland, Jno. Kirkland,
Thot.MoNeely.
Mr. Henry Marshall, Keeve of Dunn,
writes: "Some time ago I got a bottle of
Northrop A Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
from Mr. Harrison, and I consider it tbe
very best medicine extant for Dyspepsia. This medicine is making marvellous cures in Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia,
etc, in purifying the blood and restoring

Berlin, Jan. 30.—Attention has
been drawn to the fact that the French
government is buying large quantities
of timber in Alsace and Lorraine with
the apparent purpose of building
wooden barracks at various points

that she wishes to facilitate the invasion of German territory.
Cleveland, Ohio, Jan. 20. -Information of a triple murder has juat
been received at the central station.
The report says a woman killed her
three children. She then attempted
to murder the remaining two and then
suicided. The affair occurred at Bry-
ley's park, about four miles from the
central police office.
Washington, Jan. 20.—Henrv W.
Elliot, agent in this eity of the Alaska
Commercial Co., says the published
statement credited to Governor Swine-
ford, of Alaska, to the effect that the
Alaska Commercial Co. has opposed
the extension of the land laws to that
territory, is without foundation. The
Alaska Commercial Co., lie says, does
not desire to opposo it and has not
exercised any influence either way, for
or against the extension of tlie land
laws to that territory. But he, himself, has favored such extension, because from his knowledge of Alaska,
he believes it to be, as Governor
Swineford also believes it to be, necessary to the development and settlement of that country.
Cl en eland, Ohio, Jan. 20.—A horrible murder was committed here this
morning between 7 and 6 o'clook. Jas.
Cahalekis is a well-to-do carpenter living
on Independence street, near the city
limits. He has employment all the
winter and his eldest son worked for
him. This morning he aud his son went
to work. Shortly before 7 o'clock tbe
mother, Antonnete, who had been out of
temper at the breakfast table, sent
Henry, her 18 year old son to the grocery
near by, and still another son tothe milk
depot. Wheu they returned they could
not get into the house. Going into the
back yard they saw James, 13 years old,
in the water closet bleeding from 16
wounds in his left sido. They hastened
away and called their oldest brother
who had gone off with the father. Returning, tne three Itoys forced an entrance to the house. They discovered
Tony, tiie 18 year old girl, bleeding from
a dozen wounds in her left side
on the floor. Near by were Fannie, S
years old; Antonette, 3 years old, and
Ellis, 3 months old, all dead from dreadful stabs near tho heart. A bloody pair
of shears told the story. A search was
made for the mother. She was found in
the cellar, hanging from a rafter, dead.
She bad killed her three children, mortally injured two others, and had then
suicided. The two children who were
still alive were removed to a neighbor's
house, but they will die. No cause for
the terrible deed is given. The husband
does not think that hia wife was, insane.
Mr, W. Maguire, merchant, at Franklin, writes: "lwas afflicted with pain in

From the Montreal Star.
Tliere ia every likelihood of litigation concerning the payment of the
policies of assurance held on the life
of the late Mr. J. 8. McLachlan. One
company, tho Sun Life, has paid its
policies, bnt it is stated the others resist payment It may be that the
matter will be amicably settled, but
suoh is not the present appearance.
Thore was, as has been statod, a total
of 812,130.70 insurance on his life,
placed aa follows: In the Sun Life, on
his life $7000, with a bonus of (130.-
70, and an accident policy in tho samo
company for 910,000, making a total
of -.17,130.70. Of the accident policy
for 110,000, (6000 of it was reinsured
with the Citizens' Insurance Company.
The Sun Lifo haa paid tlio $17,130.70
to the heirs. The Citizens refuse to
pay tho Sun Lifo, and the latter company will enter suit The Sun Life
on paying the claim to the McLaohlan
heirs, took from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with 6 per cent, interest
compounded yearly should Mr. J. S.
McLachlan ever turn up alive. The
other insurances were (11,000 in London and Lancashire Life Co., (2000 in
tlie JStna Lifo, (2000 in the Dominion
Safety Fund and a partnership policy
for (10,000 in the Accident Company
of North America. There was a personal accident policy in the latter com-
Sany, and when J, S. McLachlan left
lontreal some time ago, tbe unearned'
portion of the premium was returned
and tho polioy cancelled. The partnership policy for (10,000 is contested by
tho North America Company on the
ground that Mr. J. S. McLachlan was
not a registered partner at the time of
his death. The partnership policy
was on the lives of the Messrs. Mc-
Lachlans, Mr. Bndford and Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In case of death by
accident of any of them the polioy wns
payable to tho survivors. (IVieii Afr.
Brophy retired from the business his
name teas removed from the'policy and
another put in hisplacc by the company,
who never vsas mid is ml now a partner.
While the Sun Life has paid its policies, the others have expressed the desire to receive moro satisfactory proofs
of death tlian have been furnished
them. Tho Citizens' Insurauce Company claims, first, that they wore not
notified of a desire for renowal, and
second, tliat the premium for the second year, wliich began in August last
has not yet boon paid. The policy of
the ^Stna calls for the production uf
the body. Mr. W. McLachlan has
written a lotter to Mr. Mocaulay, of
the Sun Life, certifying to the honorablo ami liberal manner in which thnt
company has acted with regard to the
olaim. [J. O. McLeod, is agent for
the Sun Life in this city.]  djnl4w2

A Trijjitv op Evils. Biliousness,
Constipation and Dyspepsia usually exist
together. By disciplining the liver aud
toning the stomach simultaneously, they
can be eradicated. The promptitude and

The annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts aud the Directors' report
justify the ecomiums which
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
tlie management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has de*
clined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring busiuew, tbe working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of be*
tween 17 and 18 per uent, A point at*
testing,the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the faot that the interest
income is sufficient to pay tho death
elaims- -which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities are
set forth In minute detail, and tbe tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $282,190
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets In the last year
was 8260,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

White Bronze Monuments.—White
Bronzo is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
speoial purposes in this country. It has
beon found to bo so well adapted for sta*
tuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, lowal find. St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has hem found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non*
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronse,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work uuder a high pressure of steam,
whioh outs the surface, but does not ad*
here to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements; it .cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is so thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take placo.— Bonton Journal of Com*

and that a number of others were fatally injured. The scene during the attempt to return to the hall was painful ui the extreme. The bereaved remained at the doorways all night waiting to have their dead restored to
them, and^tte lamentations Of the
women wptgj^rtlneoking. The pa-
lice give a number of contradictory
stories about the cause of panic. One
statement is that thieves started the
ery of fire for the purpose of getting a
chance to despoil many rich Jewesses
in the hall of the coatly jewels they
bore on their persons to the entertainment.
The JudljHto-(ey resembles a disordered fuvign nSom. Broken furniture,. aWihea. toys, children's caps,

the Bottom oTthe stone stairs leading
to the gallery. Here a terrible struggle 'took place between the front of
the crowd rushing from the main floor,
and the throng which rushed down
the gallery stairs. The dead lay most-
ly'in two opposing rows. The faces of
the dead wendutorted with agonized
exprejsjEftalanf clothes wore completely Mi from th* bodies of some.
During the performance some boys, in
order to obtain a view of the stage,
climbed -ipkaexpaed gas pip* Axed
along the Wall." This strained and
started to leak. Goldberg plaoed a
handkerchief over the leak, and some
one shouted ''»* off the meter."
This shout wu raised simultaneously
with ery of alarm by th* actors on the
stage. Then the people IA Ui, gallery
rose and rushed headlong down the
stairs. Goldberg's wife was torn away
from him and trampled to death. His
0-year-old son jumped up on the heads
of the packed mass and escaped by
runningaiui^bem.

New and apparently rich and extensive gold-fields have been discovered
in Mysore, a native state of southern
India! The country is an elevated
table-land of largely granitic formation. Tho Dowan of Mysore, in his
recent budget speech before tho representative assembly of the state, announced that although only a . beginning had beon made . of opening the
minea, already 33,368 rupees had been
paid into the government treasury aa
royalty on the gold extracted. History and tradition point to Mysore as
a country which in a remote past produced groat quantities of gold, and the
remains of extensive ancient workings
are found- scattered throughout the
country. East Indian authorities
affirm tliat the Ophir of King Solomon
ia now identified as apart of Mysore.
It might be easier to take that assertion for granted than to find the proof,
but if noh and; extensivt gold-fields
can be developed in a country having
a healthful climate and communication by rail with British India, the
miners can afford to leave the question of identification, while working
this welcome addition to tho speoio
resources of the world for nll it is
worth. Still later come advices
through consular channols of gold discoveries in Britisli Guiana. No ledges
have been discovered, but abont,3,0O0
persona, mostly colored and inexperienced in'gold mining, took out about
8350,000 last year by wuhing iu the
water-courses, and thia year the output is expected to rea ah $2,000,000.
ill* climate is very insalubrious, especially to whites; but the thirst for
gold will lead thousands to dare the
most pestilential clime if it promise
fortune. It is opportune that when
the decrease of the product of California and Auatralia creates a fear of
scarcity of gold for thc wants of business, these discoveries, in connection
with others in Colombia, Bolivia, Patagonia, South Africa, China, Alaska
and elsewhere, seom likely to maintain
the neaded supply.—Oregoaian.

An Adventure with Wolves.
In former times wolves were numerous in Norway, and committed enormous depredations upon sheep, and
consequently were much feared by tho
owners of flocks, whoae only weapon
for destroying them (before the introduction of firearms) wu thc axe. It
was dangerous for a man to travel in
lonely placet for thete ravenous beasts
had been known to attack human beings when very hungry. It was dangerous for a man to travel iu lonely
places, for these ravenous beasts have
been known to attack human beings
when very hungry, tn these days
they are seldom seen, and both wolvec
and beara have been well-nigh exterminated.
The story is told ot a Norwegian
farmer of seventy or oighly years ago,
whb wat conveying one of his swine to
another estate in tho night. His road
lay aoross a pond which was frozen
'over. Upon his sled he had fastened
a very strong, high tub, in which ho
plsccd the weighty animal aud covered
it. The tubs which ere in common
use for wuhing aa well u other purposes, are nearjy four feet deep, and
supported by three feet.
The middle of tho pondwas reached,
when in tbe stillness was heard the
faint patter of feet and the distant
howling of a pack of wolves, and the
farmer knew they wero pursuing him
with swift direelness. Now wu his
time to exercise the coolest bravery
and the most adroit skill. He at once
loosened hi. horse from the harness
and let him go. The voracious oroat-
ures were dmost upen him when he
threw them the fat porker. Ho then
overturned thc tub and hid beneath it
u his onlv refuge, his axe his sola
weapon. After devouring the delicious booty the wild beasts tried to
get at tho man and make him their
prey by thrusting tlieir pawa or their
noses under the tub, But he wielded
his axe with energy, and his well-aimed
blows cut off the intruding members
steadily. The ferocious animals fell
back on the iee. one afier another,
bleeding and helpless, but the farmer
remained imprisoned until daylight.
When he knew by the silence thst he
was alone and safe he crept forth to
view the scene and mark the result of
the adventure. It appeared that
eight or ten of his-foes had beon destroyed, and tho bloody traoka upon
the ice allowed that others had been
wounded and had crawled away. By
the bounty whieh he recoived for killing the wolves and the sale of the
skins taken frnm them the farmer
gained a round sum, although he lost
the animal he had set out with. The
horse had trotted back to his stablest. Ionia Republican.

What Phwoians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption has fdrV'<me
time been recognized by Medical Mui to
be the most simple and effectual means
of conveying lo Diaonsed Oigilmv'Oiira*
lives," but in cases of Kidney Disease ami
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment was practicably Impossible until the Introduction of ttie Hiarr Kidney
Pad. It costs less than a single prescription and Is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity tif Internal
Medicinal dosing. Worn Immediately over
the seat of Disease, Its curative properties
become absorbed by the diseased and enfeebled Organs, vouttmiously and directly,
ns required to Insure In roturn their healthy action and original Vigour. It Ib comfortable to tlio patient and pleasant ln Its
effects, and cures when nothing else can.
Tho Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A more valuable
discovery ns a true remedy for Kidney
Diseases wns never made.—Medical Gazette
The Marr Kidney Pad, manufactured
In Toronto, Is a permanent-sure cure for
