A new tanning agent, called
pyrofuscine, has been extracted from
coal-dust by means of caustic soda.

cent cheaper than the alum process.
Br. I*. Nansen, ofthe Bergen Museum, proposes crossing Greenland's
interior next summer on the snow-
runners which gave such remarkable
progress during Nordenskjold's last
trip. Baron Nordenskjold is himself confident of the success of this
attempt to traverse Greenland's
ice.
There is said to be much illfeeling
yet botween the pope aud tho Italian authorities, and no prospect of
a peaceful adjustment of the difficulties. The pope clings to the hope of
some day ruling over an earthly
kingdom, but Italians are quite determined that no suoh toftfeigraty
shall be permitted to exist on their
soil.
Three now vessels of tbe Italian
navy Be Umberto, Sicilia and Sar-
degona, are each to bo provided with
engines to develop the enormous
force of 22,800 indicated horsepower. Previous to 1871 the greatest power put into ono ocean vessel
was about 8000 indicated horsepower, but the Italians now have
two vessels of 18,000 indicated
horse-power each.
It isn't always safe for a girl to
marry a man without a pedigee. An
escaped convict from Sing Sing succeeded in gaining the affections of a
French Canadian girl in Montreal
and married her undor an assumed
name. They lived happily together
about three years, and moved to the
United States, where tho man was
recognized and taken back to servo
several years longer in prison. It
should be said for him that he behaved himself iu tho most exemplary manner during his married
life.
Lord Lytton, the new embassador
from Great Britain to France, is
said to be preparing to entertain
the aristocracy of Paris in a princely style. The embassy is being
thoroughly refitted and adorned
without regard to cost. It is a fino
building, and no oue knows better
than Lord Lytton how to turn it to
the best account. His first public
reception comes off shortly, and for
somo time the fashionable people of
the French capital have been full of
expectancy. Jt is expected to be
one of the most brilliant nfiUirs
that ever took place.
The Antartic exploration society
of London is offering inducements
for explorations in high southern
latitudes in the hope that important
discoveries may be mado in that
direction. It is not proposed to fit
out an expedition, but to encourage
private efforts by offering a bonus to
any one who will penetrate boyond
certain points. With a view to this
tho Australian government has promised $25,000 on condition that an
equal sum is given by the imperial
government. One of the objects in
view is said to Ire the possible discovery of valuable fisheries in the
Anturtio Ocean.
At its annual meeting held on

States and the Dominion of Canada,
either by commercial union or otherwise, which may be deemed mutually equitable and advantageous, and
whioh would at the same time harmonize tho diflorences whioh now
exist in regard to the fishory question." A large number of other representative associations in tho
United States havo oxpressed simi-
linr sontiments.

THIS MOHKIKfi'S DESPATCHED
AN OBKOXIOUS   1AW
Ottawa, Jan. 19.—Telegrams from
all parts ol the Canadian Northwest
report nheat ia permanently down 10
cents a bushel below prevailing prices
in the markets ou the' American side.
Tho loss is having serious effect on the
Canadian Northwest and is due almost
entirely tu the refusal of the Dominion
authorities to allow re-entry certificates
for wheat sent over American roads to
Canadian and eastern points. The restriction of shipments haa had the effect of confining farmers practically to
home markets. Tho ruling of the department rigorously shuts off from
Canadian territory all cars sent over
rails laid down to connect with the
Northern Pacific.
THE BELOIAN STRIKES KENEWED.
Biu-ssels, Jan. 19.—The troubles
among the Belgian minora are being
renewed and many miners have already quit work. 10,000 men in a

London, Jan. 19.— Jack Davis'
challenge has evoked replies from both
Kilrain and Smith. Both eipress
their willingness to fight Davis, and

the stake money £100 that he will
knock him out in six rounds.
ATTRACTING GENERAL ATTENTION.
Ottawa, Jan. 19.—The duty on
American fresh fish imported into
Canada is attracting general attention
in connection with the fisheries commission sitting at Washington. An
opposition paper to-day points out
that while Americans admit fresh fish
from Canada duty freo the Dominion
government collected a duty on fish
coining into Canada from  the United
ttales. This way of proving tho al-
gTO desire of the government for
reciprocity in natural products will be
made the baiis of a vigorous attack on
tho polioy of tho ministry, in connection with American relations, early in
tho next session of the Dominion
houso of commons.
EVIDENTLY A  BAD 30V.
Boston, Jan. 19.—Tlie executive
council yesterday denied tho last appeal in behalf of Nowlin, the boy
murderer of Somerviile, and there is
nothing now to uavo him from the
gallows to-morrow. The boy is perfectly stoical, and his manner ia not
that of bravado but a genuine indifference to his fate whicli has not
changed since his arrest.
A NEW DEPARTURE IN MASONRV.
Montreal, Jan. 19.—Notice of motion has been given for the next communication of the Grand Lodge of
Quebec A. F. and A.M., excluding

Thursday Evening, Jan* 19,
It will be remembered tlmt a bill
granting fomale'Suffrage was passed
in Washington Territory about two
years ago, and after having beeu in
operation somo timo was declared
unconstitutional. A new bill of a
similar kind has just passed tho
territorial council by a large majority, and, it is said, will certainly
pass the house. In tho former bill
it was.provided that women should
not only possess the right to vote,
bus should nlso be subject to serve
on junries. The now bill exempts
them from jury service, which is,
perhaps, better. Thero is much rejoicing among tho women of Wuh-
ington Territory.
Several of the provincial newspapers have been discussing the proposed withdrawal of the subsidy for
a steamboat service between Snn
Francisco and British Columbia.
One of the conditions' on which this
province entered tlie confederation
was that the service should bo maintained forever by federal subsidy.
But such changes have taken place
since then that the continuation of
the mail sorvice by that route is
manifestly absurd. -Mails have,
therefore, been sont by mil to tho
sound, and thonce by steamer; and
no one will deny that as a mail
route this is infinitely better than
the other. But the people of Victoria kick against the withdrawal
of the subsidy because, they say, it
may result in tho withdrawal of the
San Francisco steamers. If there
is danger of such a result, the kicking is not without reason. It would
be a mistake to take away any of
the commercial advantages we are
now enjoying. But we do not apprehend any such result. It pays
the steamship company handsomely
to call at our ports on their way to
the sound, und traffic is so large
that they are actually giving a
more frequent service than the cc "-
tract calls for. There is very little
darker oftho route being abandoned,
and so long as it is maintained, and
the mails couie over a quicker
route, all interests tire served. But
it must be perfectly understood that
the federal government is bound to
see that tho San Francisco steamers
nre not taken off, whether it requires a subsidy or not.
Two cases havo been before the
courts in Victoria for some days
which bring to light some additional
facts respecting the peculiar habits
of the Chinese. A China woman
named Ah Quoy was found dead in
one of the Chinese dens on Fisgiird
st,, and two celestials were nrrestcd
on suspicion of having been concerned in ber death. At the preliminary enquiry it was stated in evidence that the woman was compel 1
ed by force to remain in tlie house
where she was. Ono Ohinnman
testified that he had bargained to
buy her for §500, but when ho went
with the money, her keepers demanded 8920, which ho could not
pay. The woman told him she did
not know what would bocoiiio of her,
and she was crying bitterly. The
case has not yet been concluded, but
the facts already brought out aro
sufficiently startling. The other
case is that of conspiracy. It will
be remembered that some time ago
Mr. Vrooman-tlardner received a
number of letters threatening him
with death if he did not stop attempting to rescue China girls who
were being imported for improper
purposes. Two Chinamen, Linn
Hip and Lam Lap Fong, were arrested on a charge of conspiracy.
In his evidence in this case Mr.
Gardner stated thut these men were
in the habit of meeting steamers
which arrived with China girls on
board, and they were agents of tho
Ohu Kung Tong, or Highbinder
society. This society, he said, was
a sooiety of blackmailers nnd murderers, and was a very powerful
organization. Among other things
found on one of the prisoners was
an agreement between the Ohu
Kung society nnd Lum Hip in which
he is styleda "salaried soldier" of the
society, and his instructions nre sot
out with considerable detail. He
agrees to go to all boats which reach
Victoria with China girls on board
for the purpose of bringing them
into the possession of the society.
In order to carry out this mission
he is enjoined not to flinch in the
face of danger, and to "injure or
kill" whenever it was thought to be
necessary in the interests of the
organization, "It is further stipulated," the agreement says, "that you
thai), in common with all members,
exert yourself and injure or kill any
one at the direction of our society."
As a reward for his services Lum
Hip was to receive $500, and in
the event of his falling into tho
hands of the authorities and suffering death or imprisonment, his family wa« to receive a yearly pension
of 1100. The discovery of this
document shows beyond doubt that
there exitto in thit provinco n society whote operations are of the
mott diabolical character, and whoso
members are prepared to murder
right and left whenever there is
danger of their plansfalling through
on account of outside interference.
This is a state of things which calls
for the most prompt and vigorous
action. If the men now under ar-
rest c»n bo proved to be tho agents
of suoh nn organization, the utmost
limit of the law should be given
them. Not only are young girls
bought und sold like cattle under
the very noses of . the officials of a
Christian nation, but this highbinder society has desperate men roiii-
missioned and paid to commit murder upon those who, in the interest
of humanity, dure to interfere with
its operations! Such things cannot
bo suffered in tills country. If our
laws nre not uble to meet such cases,
it is timo the statute books wero
enlarged by such measures ns will
enable tho authorities to deal effectually with such rascally combinations. Among the Oliineso, ns
among the whites, tlioro are good
and bad. Somo Chinamen in this
country are honorable and worthy
of all esteem, but there are some of
them vory bad.

hurst, Out., writes: "My customers who

To the' student of ethnology few

different views hold by the Eastern
and Western worlds on tho subject of
corpulence.
Iu China, corpulonco Is considered
to be ono of the most Important qrtal-
UlcaUons for the holding uf any publlo

virtue which imparts dignity to the
appearance, weight to tire judgment,
anil solidity to tlio mlrnl.
In China the thin man Is always

obscurity, nud shuus tho gaze of his
felUnv-r'iiizon.rr.

great criminals, Is unknown in China.
Tlie most popular grids in tho Chinese

When, in consequence of age and dis-.
esse, the hair becomes weak, thin, and
gray, Ayer's Hair Vigor will strengthen
it, restore its original color, promote its
rapid and vigorous growth, and import
to it the lustre and freshness of youth.
I havo 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. I commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
the good effects it produced. It not
only restored the color to my hair, but
so stimulated its growth, that I have
now more hair than ever before.—

to run through Boundary pass, which
is located almost directly on tlio international boundary between between
Washington and British Columbia, and
the best route north of the Columbia
river.--Blaine Jottrnal.

Lee Sam, the Chinese murderer,
was brought over from Viotoria yesterday by Officers Kirkup and Miller
and delivered tu Warden MoBride, of
the penitentiary. Leo Sam, along with
Ah Fat, was found guilty of murdering a Chinese woman and sentenced to
be hanged. Leo Sam, who turned
Queen's evidence, has hud his sentence
commuted to imprisonment fur lifo,
but tho law will take its course in tho
case of Ah Fat. Warden MqBrido
has now 70 convicia under his charge,
all of whom, with a couple of exceptions, are in the boat of health.
A Musical Family,
Wo learn that Mr. C. W, Jordrmj
brother of Mr. G. W. Jordan (Goodwin & Jordan) has been appointed head
of tho tuning and tunc regulating department of the celebrated piano and
organ manufactory of Mason it Hamlin, Boston. This is a very important
and responsible position, and is assigned only to first-class men. He ro
coived his first lessons in piano tuning
from his brother as far back as I8(iti,
and has proved himself an apt learner,
Mr. G. W, Jordan has another brother
in the tuning business at L03 Angelos,
Cal. It is evident that a voin of music
runs through the Jordan family.

that was all. To-day the mercury

A Sow Election Ordered.
His Lordship Mr. Justice McCreight
gave his decision this morning in tho
St. Andrew's ward contested election,
The election in that ward is declared
void on tho grounds that numerous
irregularities occurred in conducting it.
The costs in connection with thu case
aro given against Messrs. Hoy and
Roid. Tho St. George's ward casa

petitioners, withdrew hia objections t<>
allbut 7 of tbofiiaputedballots. Tho ballots wove then gone over by His Lord
ship who decided the disputed points as
they came before him. Atthe oluseof the

mora than Mr. Pearson, out of tho
votes allowed. Several votes were
being argued on as wo go to press, but
it is not expoctcd tho above result will

St. Andrew's ward.
Weird and Willi,
Mr. John Wilkinson, who hud just
returned from Sitka, was interviewed
in San Francisco a few days since, lie
said: It is a weird, wild placo up
there. It is not so awfully cold, but.
it is pretty nearly all tho time night
there. You can't see tlio sun till 11
o'clock in the day, aud it goes down
again behind thu mountains almost immediately. Thero is just a narrow
strip of day in a great big ocean of
night. Lamps have to be kept burning most all tho time, and men can't
accomplish anything much trying to
work. It is rather worao 75 miles
farther north at Killisnoo, where I was
for a littlo while. Snow was about'8
inches deep, and tho lowest 1 saw Ihe
thermometer was 5C above zero.
There are only about 300 people now
at Sitka, aud nut over 000 or 700 at.
Juneau. It is tho same way at Fort
Wrangle. Tho population has shriveled up a great deal. Many pooplo have
come away. They hate to spend tho
winter there, it is so fearfully long and
dark. A lot moro people would liko
to get away, but thoy have not got the
money to come on.

The Telephone Service.
Editor Columbian,--In your issue
of yesterday I notice a paragraph
iu regard, to the tolephono lines
in this city, whero you state, "some
have givon up their instruments altogether and many others threaten to dp
so unless the service is improved."
Tho lirst part of this statement I am in
a pesition to know is a direct untruth,
for only two instruments havo beon
taken out iu the last four months, ono
through death and tho other giving up
bu-di less, on thu other hand wo hnve
put in over twenty new ones; we cannot supply the demand fast enough. In
regard to complaints, theso have been
very few lately and are rectified as soon
aa possible, 1 am unable totracoyour
sudden change of opinion, for
in your issno uf tho day before, in
speaking of tho wires, you say "this
reflects great credit on the management." To an outsider 1 think, to say
the least of it, this will appear very
childish. In etuicluaion I would ad-
viso you before making statements calculated to do injury, that you tind out
the true Btate of affairs and thereby be
able to write mure truthfully and intelligently.    Yours truly,
War. MoOoll,
Sec. N. W. & B. I. Telephone Co.
[We cettuinlybad uo intention to
njuro tho company by tho paragraph
which appeared yesterday, but the secretary is very much mistaken >f he imagines that tho statement was made
without duo consideration. In saying
that only two instruments have been
taken out during the past four months,
he avoids the question: wo made uo
mention of four month's. Every statement made in the item yesterday was
perfectly true. Because we complimented tho company on Monday_for its.
promptness in getting up the wires, it
does not follow that we had no fault to
lind with the service. It is our policy
to compliment this ot any other company where it deserves compliment,
but to censure where there is failure.
But-this is what tho secretary considers
"childish !"—Ed.]

Washington, Jan. J 8.—Speaker
Carlisle rented very woll during the

uouuees-the speaker will be unable to

A SAOHELIOIOUS   PROCEEDING.
Paris, Jan. 18.—A disgraceful
scene occurred in tho cathedral nt
Rouen to-day, caused by a sacruligiuiie
attempt of a priest to work upon the
superstition of the people through tho
arrangement of a bchio in which hu
impersonated God and carried nn a
dialogue with another priest representing, in ep*tunjo and sentiment, the
devil. The * congregation hissed iho
performance,und finally drowned the
voices of the speakers by Binging tho
"Marseillaise* and "En revonanfcde
la revue." Tho police wore summoned
aud attempted to clear the cathedral
but were unable to do so, They arrested several of tho congregation,
however, and tho disordor was finally
stooped by tho termination of the
farco which provoked it.

FATHER RYAN'S I! Ii LEASE.    ,
Durlin, Jan. 18.'—A scene of wild
excitement was occasioned by the re-
loaso of Father Ryan at Limi-rick today, and the pidico woro ouly able by
tho moat str-jnuous efforts to prevent a
riot, Father Ryan, after a brief stay
nt a hotel iu Limerick, proceeded to
Herbertstown, whither ho was essurled
by a largo crowd. A force of polico
followed tho procession but wero delayed at a point midway between Limerick and Herbertstown by a disahlod
car, which had boon placed across tho
road in such a way as to make its removal necessary tor further progress.
This obstruction enabled Father Ryan
to arrive at Herbertstown sufficiently
in advance of the police to make a
speech at that place, which was con-
eluded beforo tho polico got there.
The released priest reiterated his belief iu the legitimacy and efficacy of tho
plan of campaign, which ho declared
was both mural and Jwt» despite tho
opposition.made tft,it '*>' the spiritual

which it was proposed to hold fit Bally-
