Figures Oo Lie.
The Winnipegers have had an
interesting bibnio over their election
of mayor, j The' candidates for the
citrio chair were Aldermen Pearson
tui Jones, and the contest was very
close.' On the evening of the day
of election it appeared , at the close
of the count, that Alderman Jones
had been elected, and bis friends
forthwith hoisted him on their
shoulders, carried him to a platform,
and made htm give a speech and
afterwards "set 'em up" for the boys,
There was great enthusiasm among
the Jones party and they showered
congratulations on one another over
ttelr hard-earned victory* Before
the rejoicers had separated, however, their joy was turned to mourning by the announcement that
there had been a mistake in the totalling up of the count, and' that
Alderman Pearson was elected beyond all doubt by a majority of six.
The other party then had its'innings, and the mayor-elect for the
time being made bis speech and returned profuse thanks for the honor
conferred on him, and he likewise
treated the boys. But these also
were doomed to disappointment.
The friends of Alderman Jones
' decided to demand a recount
of the. votes, because whilo a re
count might place then, in a better position, it could aot make their
case worse. The result was that
Alderman Pearson lias been counted
but, ana* Alderman. Jones counted
in with a majority of five votes.
The defeated candidate in this case
no doubt realises that the uncertainties of election business are
verygreat.
: The Toronto Election.
Details of the municipal contest
in Toronto show msny remarkable
foots. Mr. Howland's actual majority was 2,167, which is 449 over
hts majority last year. The total
vote polled was 16,099, an increase
over last year of 2,231 votes, When
it ut remembered that Toronto has
been-the headquarters of Toryism
and the stronghold of the liquor interest for many yean, it will strike
one as remarkable that the mayor
and a majority of the city council
this tear are. temperance men and
Liberals.' Mr. Howland has long
been a leader in the crusade against
intemperance and immorality, The
political complexion of the council
is summed up as follows: Reformers,
gljvOonservatives, 15.   But it was
Mart as well as the Globe, and even
more than the Globe, favored the
election of Mr. Howland. The issue was that, of clean government
and moral reform against crookedness and iniquity. As soon as the
result became known Mayor Howland went to Shaftesbury Hall whioh
wu packed withenthiisiastiofriends.
When he entered, the vast assemblage stood up and sang the grand
Doxology, "Praise God from whom
all blessings flow." What a contrast to tiie usual reception of a
party candidate by his victorious
caucus! In his address|Mayor Howland said the hymn just sung ex-
Sressed bis own feelings. This vie
>ry, he said, wai one which gave
the temperance party paramount
control of the city against such influences as had controlled it It
was not a victory for the Reform
ry or.thc Conservative party,
Protestants or Catholics, but a
victory of tho people for the people.
He felt personally very humble in
the hour of triumph, recognising the
greatness of the principle and the
smallness of any man compared
with' the great issues whioh had
tteri settled by this victory. Other
spamkors .give utterance to similar
sentiments, and the Globe declares
that the election has brought into
office ''the best oouncil Toronto ever
had." It may not be possible to
point, out, accurately the causes
which have brought about such a
change in the pnblic sentiment of
Toronto, but no doubt it is greatly
owing to the persistent and faithful
efforts of some princely men and
women who have been for years de.
"tStsflfcf JaSihsiires 'fo the work of
reform. The visits of the evangelists Moody and Sam Jones and Sam
SmaH has also exercised _ powerful
influence, because these men attracted great crowds and set people
fo thinking of better things than
<«)»/'-'accumulation of wealth by
doubtful means and the devoting of
omi'i.!telf..to personal ambition and

A misapprehension,
Editor Columbian.—I learn that the
teacheri of our public school have boen
greatly disquieted by garbled reports of
the few remarks I made atthe Methodist
church last Thursday evening. I am
sure that no word fell from my lips that
ought to disturb anyone's feelings. None
who distinctly understood what I said
could find any fault with the remarks I
made on that occasion, as they were altogether of a general character and bad no
application to our schools more than to
any other.   Yours, ke.,

Cincinnati, Jan. 11.—The conjecture
haa been made that Prof. 11. Schaff, who
took morphine in the jail yeaterday and

Chicago Haymarket riot. This is based
on the faot that hia friends in jail were
anarchists, and that two of them ssy he

before the riot. It la thought he feared
trial in tho police court here, would re

rard,
limns, Jnn. 11.—The reichstag was
crowded to-day, .ho occasion being
the calling urj of the government military bill in iU amended fui'iii Tin-second reading, Oon. Ymi Moltke (ipetiiHl
tlie debate in favor of the second reading on behalf of the government. He
said he did not believe that any states
should assume tho responsibility of increasing tlie supply of combustible
material which at present existed in a
greater or less degree everywhere.
Strons; governments, he contended,'
were the best guarantee of peace, while
the danger lay in the ambition of party leaders and their influence on publie opinion. "If any Btate," said Gen.
Von Moltke, "oan work effectively to
preserve peace it is Germany, who
aims solely on the defensive. For this
she must be strong and prepared," he
continued, "to be involved in war.
If this bill is rejected we shall most
certainly have war. To-day's voto in
the reichstag on tho measure will not
fail to have iU effect abroad. The
army alono renders possible protection
to all other political institutions whieh
must stand or fnll with it. A grant
for a short time will not be acceptable. The oyes of Europe are
Hied on this body. I appeal to your
patriotism to adopt the bill and show
tho world your readiness to mako any
sacrifice, even of your own adverse
opinion, if the welfare of the fatherland is nt stake." Baron Stauffeuberg
followed Von Moltke, and while he
was speaking Bismarck entered. At I ho
conclusion of Baron Stanffenberu's
speech Prince Bismarck rose. He
said tho desire of nil the military authorities of the empire is only opposed
by Herr Richter, Herr Windtnorst,
and Herr Grilledborger.. It wus diflicult to conclude peace at Frankfort,
uml it is still more diflicult to maintain. A degree of intimaey aud mental confidence exisU between Germany
and Austria sueh ns never existed at
any period of the German federation.
We are bound to maintain peace for
this quarter of the globe, but for this
u strong army is required Our relations with all the powers are of the
best, and our good relations with Russia are beyond all doubt. I should
havo considered entering upon war on
account of Bulgaria as an act of treason
against my country.

The Confederation Lire.
The annual report of this solidly proa*
perous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts aud tho Directors' nport
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks tothe resolute
manner in which the Company has de*
clined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the work*
ing expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of be*
tween 17 ami 18 per cent. A point at*
testing the soundness of the finances of
tbe Company is the fact that the interest

prifyaeat. Lord Iddelsleigh denies
that the condition of hia seat debars
bim from accepting officu.and bo withdraws from oflico for life under a
strong sense of having boen ill treated. His personal frienda explain that
he preferred his resignation to enable
Lord Salisbury to form a ooalition
cabinet. When the prime minister's
efforts in that direction failed Lord
Iddlesleigh considered himself entitled
to hold the leading portfolio. His
lordship in a letter contradicts his al*
leged ill-health and aaya hia father,
family, friends and medical advisers
concur in the opinion that the interesting duties of the foreign offlco have
bad a beneficent effeot upon his health
and that he is now stronger than at
any time since he left the house of
commons. Lord Salisbury's support*
ers state that they are glad to get rid
of Lord Iddlesleigh, aa he was of no
benefit to the foreign office. Lord
Iddlesleigh's son Henry, who is surveyor general of ordnanoe, threatens
to resign, but it is thought unlikely
that he will abandon an office whieh
yields him yearly an income of £1500.
Negotiations between Mr. Chamber*
lain anal Mr. Morley are tending toward an agreement nn the land bill on
the basis of Mr. Ohumberlnin's former
proposals to limit the operations of
the bill to the purchaso of smaller
holdings, thus requiring a total capital
guaranteed by the exchequer of £15,-
000,000.
Rord Randolph Churchill, replying
to an address of confidence from the
Primrose League, expressed gratification and satisfaction that the signers
of the addrefsjaie more generous in
thoir judgment than many conservative members of parliament wlio have
condemned him, although they havo
no information as to the causes of his
resignation. He says he cares little
whether such hasty and adverse criticism modifies or not after he has been
allowed to make a publio explanation,
the approval of such persons being as
worthless as their disapproval.
Tho Tehjraph lays stress upon the
many rumors of war. Now Russian
influence favors the Franco-German
conflict in order to enable her to carry
out her own eastern plans.
Henry Stafford Northcote, son of
Lord Iddleseigh, has contrary to expectation resigned the office of surveyor general of ordnance.
llrltlsh   Columbia's KxlUDit.
A Montreal paper says: It is a
common thing to have Britfsh Columbiana described as wanting in enterprise and as being antiquated in their
mothods. Those wbo bave been educated to hold such opinions of our
brethren of the Pacific coast would
have such ideas very much disturbed
by visiting the British Columbia exhibit which is now being shown by
the Canadian Pacific Railway Co. in
New England. The newspapers of
Now England aro loud in their praises
of this exhibit. The Democrat, of
Plymouth, MaBs,, says: "It ia very
much the best agricultural exhibit
we evor saw." This ia pretty
strong testimony hs coming from a
Massachusetts Yankee. Wo cannot
name all the exhibitors, although
everyone deserves special menlion, be*
cause many of tbe specimens arrived
without the sender's name attached;
whether it had been rubbed off or
never put on we cannot say, but it is a
great pity, for among these are some
of the finest specimens. We saw. a
sample of spring wheat grown by Mr.
A. B. Knox, Okanagan, very bright
in color and very plump and large,
which was pronounced at the Toronto
and Sherbrof.ke exhibitions to be somo
of the finest lnokiug wheat shown. Mr.
Reece sent what was perhaps tlia best
wheat where all was so good. To describe the apples, pears, vegetables,
etc., the only adjective we cau use iB
colossal. Golden russets, baldwius,
Northern Spies and 20oz. pippinsgrown
by S. W. Kirkland, of Ladner'sLanding;
russets by Mrs. Evans, of Chilli*
whiok; desert apples by Wm. Dowle-
han; gloria mundi, gravonsteius, norther spies, and Dutch magnolias by A.
C.Wells; white oats from Chilliwliack;
enormous beets, carrots, 20-oz. pears,
mammoth potatoes, some weighing 41
lbs., very fine Indian corn aud well-
cured specimens of bunch grass, sender
unknown, among the exhibits. There
was also n box of minerals from Ilie-
cillewuet. Tho specimens aro very
rich and lead one to suppose that
money could be profitably invested in
Mr. D. W. Corbin'a neighborhood.
Mr. Corbin sent these minerals. A
small box of quarts from the Quesnelle
Mining Co., sent by Jas. Reid, of
Quesnelle, is most attractive and hus
been pronounced by judges to be of a
vory profitable kind, being very soft.
It is gold und silver bearing
quartz and comos from Hixon
Creek, sixty feot from tho surface. All these fruits, vegetables,
and minerals were exhibited at
tho exhibitions of Toronto and SIut
brooko, and they nro now visiting iu
the C. P. R, exhibition car all the
Now England towns. The enterprise
shown by the worthy farmers aud
miners in sending tlieir products so
groat n distance is commendable and
will have as a sure result the bringing
to their fertile valleys a number of
the very best class of settlers, both
from tlie eastern provinces of Canada
and from the Now England States.
We wish we had space to quote more
of the comments of the New England
newspapers. Suffice it to say tlmt
none but the most favorable opinions
woro expressed concerning the exhibits from British Columbia.
A friond, who hud just returned
from a country boarding-school examination, told me of an answer a child
gave the examiner, whioh I think too
beautiful not to bo recorded. The examiner asked the cluss tho meaning of
