The Galistogian gives this prescription its warmest endorsement: If
vou have a horse that is in the habit of kicking, put him in a narrow
stall thst has both sides thickly padded. Suspend a sack filled with
hay or stray so that it will striko
his hoels, and lot the horso an sack
fight it out. Be sure to have things
arranged so that the horse cannot
hurt himself. Ihe sack will be victorious every time, and in the end
the bona will absolutely refuse to
kick the sack or anything else.
A Frenoh opera manager was in
despair at the prospect of having to
produce "L'Africaine" with white
negroes in the ballet, because the
dancers refused to black their faces
for fear it would injure their complexions. He issued an order, however, that all the young and pretty
girls must color their faces, because
it would do them no harm, while
the old and plain onesu wold be
allowed to appear without black
faces, because they had more need
to take care of their looks. Tbe result was that every blessed one of
the girls tried to get on more blaok
than any of the others-, and
when the ballet was on the stage a
half dozen extra calciums had to be.

An hour previous to the banquet
to President Cleveland ih this city
about 20 ladies succeeded in getting
into the hall to obtain a private
view While the colored waiters
were arranging the tables about 10
of the hand painted menu and toast
eards disappeared. Some of the
visitors are leading society belles of
the west side, and the members of
the Merchants' Committee waxed
wroth when they heard the fact. As
each of the programmes * htoVAoat
$1.50 the minimum number had
been ordered and there were none
to spare, lt was found that there
was not even one left for Mrs.
Cleveland when she went into the
balcony to retain as a souvenir,
Ool. Krez, gallantly contributed his
for this purpose, and other guests
somewhat reluctantly gave theirs to
be presented to the ladies of her
party. They were much pleased tto
get them, and laid them on a chair
during theprogressof the banquet. The
chair was near the balcony door, and
while they were listening to the
toasts somebody grabbed them and
fled unobserved.— Milwaukee Sentinel *
Under the title "Ohinese Allianc
es" the Chinese Times of Tientsin
publishes an article discussing the
possibilities of alliances between
Ohina and western powers, especially GtMt Britain. The latter is, the
writer says, an idea whioh fills the
mind with an alluring sense of
soundness and completeness] but he
argues tbat in the present condition
of Chinese statemanship such an alliance is not within the sphere of
practical politics. The scheme, lie
acknowledges, has its roots in the
nctual circumstances of the two
Empires, and it needs no special perspicacity to see that the fundamental interests of India and Ohina are
united iu substantial harmony. As
it may be predicted of any country
that it will ultimately do that which
its material interests require, it may
be argued that a common policy will
eventually promote the common interests of tho great Southern Aniri-
tie Empires, Before such a policy,
however, can be formulated, it is
necessary that the statesmen of
both countries should not only be
convinced of the community of in-
terest between the two, but also see
clearly how the fusion may bo developed without producing more injury than benefit. "If there be any
Chinese stateman morally capable of
laying down a far-reaching policy
for his country, we have yet to make
acquaintance with him. Intellectually there are many who could mas-
tor the problem, und who have
Knowledge of human history sufficient to enlighten them as to the
probable issue of new combinations.
Boti,udging from all that lias taken
place under our eyos, we should say
that any abstract resolution whielr
might bo formed overnight would
be completely overwhelmed in the
morning by some petty concern of
tho passing hour. It is not the
way of Chinese statemen to provide
against eventualities which can only
be definitely conceived by a disciplined imagination, Sufficient for
tho day is the evil thereof, in their
opinion, and tlie questions of the
day aro always sufficiently pressing
to expel from the mind the consideration of what is as yet remote,"—

THK TORIES CONFIDENT.
London, Oct. 29.—The present attitude of Mr. Chamberlain and of Mr.
Bright, together with that which Lord
Hartington has assumed in his speeches
this week, has dispelled much of the
premature speculation as to the result
of the next general elections. The
Tories are very confident of their ability to get successfully "through the next
session. Nor do they see any reason
parliament should not have,at least.au
average endurance. Among the few
Liberal politicians now in London,
none can foresee a ministerial crisis in
thu course of next session, although
aome of their leaders, including Gladstone, believe next spring will Bee an -
other general election. It is admitted
in Tory circles that the two months of
the severest difficulty for tbe government will be in regard to the Irish
land purchase bill, and the main provisions of the local government bill.
But, at present, those dissenting
Liberals who have sat in the house of
commons know their own mind, and
are thoroughly agreed to avoid an
election as fraught with supreme disaster to their little party, and so long
as they remain of that mind and by-
elections aro not sufficiently numerous
to effect the majority, the Conservatives will continue io office. Upon
both of these subjects as to which
difficulty may arise, it is certain that
Lord Hartington will be consulted by
tho government before the opening of
tho session, and it is not likely that
circumstances will arise after the bills
aro framed to affect tho views of these
with whom Lord Hartington acts.
Lord Hartington iB no nearer to a
junction with the government than he
ever was, and there is no probability
of this taking office unless events in
Ireland should place the government
in serious peril.

- ' V4e rora against home bole.
London, Oct. 31.—The correspondent's! the Cnroutcfe at Rome denies
emphatically that the Pope holds the
same views in regard to Ireland as does
Gladstone. The Pope believes iu the
settlement of tho Agrarian question
but not in home rule. '
TERRIBLE GAMS';**''
London, Oot 31.—A Terrible gale
raged in tho south of England ou Saturday night, many buildings were unroofed and there were numerous shipping casualties in the Channel. A
boat with a party of 12 persons which
loft Weymouth fur a nights trolling was
capsized and ten of the party drowned.
A sloop was wrecked off Dunkirk and
four men drowned.
Canada's claim
Boston, Mass. Oct. 31. Ex-minister Days of tho Dominion cabinet, will
lay before the fisheries commission the
question of the intcrntional boundary
settled in 1848, claiming that Canada
was bodly worsted. Tlie Dominion
will claim a largo postion of Northwestern Maine traversed by tho Canadian Pacific. The Monti-eul Gazette
says to-day, tho right of Canada has
been clearly demonstrated by published documonts. The controversy is
of much importance in connection with
tho short lino 'railway from Montreal
to Halifax und St. .John.
A VALUABLE VALISE.
Los Angles, Cal. Oct. 31.—The
police announced to-day thnt a fortnight back, a drummer, for u Now
York jeweliy houso had his valiso
stolen from n sleeping car whilo eating
Bupperin SatiBernadino. It contained between $12,000 and $111,000 worth
of diamonds and Jewelry. Three hard
character nre in custody on suspicion
of being the robbers.
poisoned 11Y CIIISASPN.
Louisville, Cul. Oct. 31.—There
wns a post mortem examination held
last night on tho body of Homer Hal-
lock reported yesterday as dying of
heai-t disease at Briggs' ranch. Doc-
ror Bales examined tho body thoroughly but found nothing indicating heart
disease nnd upon dissccing the body
found traces of poisoning and is now
nnnlyzing tho stomach which showed
this morning evidence of poisoning.
Thoro is strong suspicions of foul play
as Hultock was seen well on Saturday
night at 11:30 ou his way homo. It
has bo ascertained that about 12
o'clock ho waa nt tho cabin of somo
Chinese employed on the Vineyard
also that he bad considerate trouble
with tho Chiucso, and the supposition
is thoy havo poisoned him for rovengc.
Much indignation is expressed to-day
and trouble is fearod.
STIAMSHir LOST.
JacksoM'Iile, Fin., Oet. 31.—The
str. Panama, whioh left New York on

all passengers wero saved. Tho Panama whs a new vessel.
THE  FRENCH MUDDLE.
Paris, Oet. 31.—Figaro says to-day
that Friday next tho ministry will
proposo a vote of confidence in connection with the Wilson investigation.
A ministerial crisis is imminent and
Fliiuvet is reported as saying that the
ministiy* can bo upset in 48 hours if
tho oppositiou so wills. There ia no
longer any talk of Grery's resignation
in advance of tho Wilson investigation.
For Grevy to resign now would be
even more of a confession than Wilson's restitution. It is believed that
tho investigating commission will protect Wilson, but the entire Boulanger
crowd will do all they can to keep up
public excitement and secure the
downfall of the ministry.
APPEAL TO RESCUE.
Chicago, Oct. 31.—The sheriff and
police were considerably agitated yea?
terday by the circulation from on unknown sourco through the moils of a
circular without signature, or other
iitdentilication, calling upon working-
men to eli'ect tbe rescuo of the condemned anarchists on the day of execution.. It closes in the following
words: "The independence of ths
United States was brought about by
the use of bombs and firearms. They
are effective. Forewarned ia forearmed. Any action that may be definitely determined upon should be
kept secret until the proper time.
It is not at all probable that the miMtio r
will be on the scene of any attempted
execution. Further notice will bo
given later on,"
GRAIN DESTROYED.
Chico, Cal., Oet. 31.—A fir* ooeur-
red ou the ranch of D. II. Roeveo,
four miles west of this place. It destroyed on immense granary when
was stored about 350 tons of grain.
Total loss, (13,000; insurance, 17,000.

o'clock on Saturday night Ule watchmen, Indian William aod Indian
Oxinie, attempted to arrest one
Alexander Potsa.a half-brted,for being
drunk and disorderly on the Indian
reservation here. He resisted, and

The Disallowed Road.
If it be true, as stated in a telegram whioh appeared the other day
in this paper, that arrangements
have at last been concluded for the
completion of the Red River Valley Railway this fall, the fact will
be very gratifying to a large majority of the people between the Pacific Oeean and Ontario: There is no
doubt but the struggles of the people of Manitoba to secure additional railway facilities have enlisted
much publio sympathy. It is almost universally admitted now that
the monopoly clause of the C. P. R.
charter cannot be applied to either
Manitoba or Britisli Columbia, and
it is, moreover, certain that the
people of Manitoba at least had
good reason to believe thut there
was no intention to apply it to
them. The very language employed
in the monopoly clause bears out
this view. It is therein stated that
no railway to the boundary shall be
authorized by the "Dominion parliament," and that in the establishment of "new provinces" a condition of the constitution will be a
restriction on the construction of
competing railways. It is held that
the right of chartering provincial
railways could not be taken from
local legislatures by the federal parliament, and, therefore, parliament
oould not impose the monopoly clause
on provinces then existing. This
was the view put before the house
atthe time the charter was ratified.
Sir John. Macdonald said: "In order
to give them (the C. P. R.) a chance
we have provided that the Dominion parliament — mind you, the
Dominion parliament (we cannot
check Ontario, we cannot check
Manitoba)—shall, for the first ten
years after the construction of
the road, give their own road,
into which they are putting so
muoh money and so much land, a
fair chance of existence." At the
same time (February, 1881) Hon.
Thos. White said: "There is nothing
to prevent Manitoba granting a
charter from Winnipeg to the boundary line. The provision does not
take' away from Manitoba a single
right it possesses. * * * There is
nothing to prevent the province of
Manitoba chartering a railway from
Winnipeg tb the boundary to connect witii any southern railway.
* * * Then is nothing to prevent
a railway being built in Manitoba,
within the province, that would
carry the traffic to any railway that
may take it from, the American
side." Speaking in Winnipeg on
the 8th of last March Hon. Thos.
White reiterated these views when
he addressed the following words to
the Conservative association: "As
you are aware, the contract with the
0. P. R. in no way interferes with
the right of the legislature of Manitoba to glint charters within the
boundaries of the province as they
existed at that time." From these
official statements it is plain that
the province'of Manitoba was quite
within its powers when it granted
a charter tb the Red River Valley
Railway, and that the federal government was under no obligation by
reason of the monopoly clause of the
0. P. R. to disallow it. While seo.
92 of the B, N. A. act declares that
provincial legislatures have power
to construct railway lines in the
respective provinces, it expressly
excepts among other things railways
connecting two or more provinces,
or "extending beyond the limits of
the province," The question has
arisen whether the Manitoba railway" comes under this exemption.
It does not oross the boundary of the
province, but goes to the boundary,
and there meets an American railway. On this point a deoision has
been given by the courts which
clearly makes the road a provincial
work, fn 1871 the supreme court
of New Brunswick pronounced
judgment in the case of the North
American Railway Oo. which sought
to extend its line to the United
States boundary. In this judgment
Chief Justice Ritchie (now chief
justice of the supreme court of
Canada) said that the claim had
been set up that, because it was intended, that at the boundary this
road would connect with an American line, it was, not within the power of the provincial government.
"B«t," said he, "we think we have
no right to look to intentions or anticipations, or doings of parties out-
rid* the provincial legislature * * *
snd. that tbe intention of the legislature, as expressed in the act, atone
can control tu. * * * As to any
possible or probable connection of
tho railway with a line of railway,
not under the authorities of these
acts, in the United States, we have
nothing; to do." In the opinion of
the chief justice all the other judges
of the supreme oourt concurred. Sir
John Macdonald himself seems to
hold a similar view, as appears from
his sugirestion to the Winnipeg deputation that they might build their
road up to the very boundary line,
but leaving space enough to drop a
shilling: between its rails and the
rails of its American connection!
Havior shown thst tlie federal government. WmiHrt legally veto the
R. B.iV,i?l,9harter under the monopoly'dlaaae or under tho clause
relating to roads extending beyond
the provincial boundaries, the only
remaining ground  is  the general
{lower of Veto lodged with the executive with respect lo all provincial
legislation. It is evident, wc think,
thut this power wus never intended
to be exercised iu such cases us this.
The powers of tho federal government in this respect aro precisely
tho sumo as those vested in tho
imperial government with respect
to federal legislation; and every one
knows that the imperial government
never oxercises this power as a mutter of policy, bnt only whoro tho
legislation is clearly unconstitutional or conspicuously unjust. It was
manifestly never supposed thut this
power would be used to deprive a
province of ■ any right expressly
guaranteed to it by the- constitution.
Sir John Macdonald himself said:
"The rights of self-government heretofore conceded to tho several provinces are not in any wiso impaired
by their having entered into u federal
compact." In 1876 Lord Carnarvon said that if the federal government "could be said to have the
power of controlling tho enactments
or operation of provincial acts, tho
consequence would be a virtual repeal of the section of the B. N. A.
act which givos tho exclusivo right
of legislation in certain matters to
the provincial legislatures." It is
clear, therefore, that the exercise of
the veto power by tho fedoral authorities against the R. R. V. R. is
an exercise of authority not contemplated by the constitution, and subversive of tiie rights guaranteed to
the provinces. Under these circumstances tho provincial g overnmont
is justified in resisting tho veto by
every lawful resource within its
reach.

Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since wat timo I have never beon without them. They regulate tho bowels,

II iw na; sceniorl tho Mcolot valley

mil iicr ii e of the heavy drops of

cxlo/ ted from me an the rord to Visp,
hin b cause of the desir j lo push lor-

'iho truin nt Visp was reached in
time ninl arrived in Hern at eleven
o'clock tit night. Tho reports which ro-
c ivcil th-rc loft liltle to doubt thnt tho
si; missing ones hud really perished.
I Injur led the lirst train for Tliun and
liitcr.ukt'ii, und .from Iiiterluken to
l.riiiu-rbriiiin n whero I arrived at two
o'clock. Hero I met relatives and
friVnds of the unfortunnto travelers:
Messrs Wottstcin, hither and son; a
IntlrcrW Mr. Zieglcr; Kleiner, editor
of tlie "Xeiie Zuricher Xeituny"; Rev.
Strainer from Grindclwald; Rev. Weber
I rrhof from Winterthur, all in great
desfiondencv.
The weather, which up to this tlmo
had bicii very doubtful, meanwhile improved materially, so I concluded to
commence our journoy for "Roththal
Hut' as soon ns posible.
My two guides Frits Graf—father and
son — nn I myself started for the
Ptccki'Hicrg; our conveyance took na
there iu one hour. From thia point wo
trenail ut once to ascend the Roththal.
After mi hour nnd a hnlf we reached
the Hut of Alp Stufenitd- Here we
refresh d ourselves with milk, which
wns |<r pared for us by tho kind in-
huhitunt of tho hut. He is the last man
who saw the unfortunate victims alive,
un I conversed with them. Ho told na
that thev had called upon him ut the
hill, nn I that in view of tho wretched
- wcul her- hu endeavored to get them to
nhiililirn their undertaking; but despite
lit'1 rain uud everything they continued
their journey upward to Roththal-
Shelter.
At eight o'clock in the evening we
riniclioil the Roth-thal-club-shelter and
hero we found eeven guides who had
been sent thither from Lauterbaeh tho
duy before. Two carriers, who bad just
brought provisions for the guides, were
also there. So thero wu .a full doien
of us in the small hut; ita accommodations were really intended for only eight
men. But thia did not annoy us.
Were not all of u» willing to crouch toil. Hut audio get «l6nju well as pos-
sil.le? Three of ill ti6w prepared bed;
on the floor and the remaining nine
prepared to rest as well aa waa possible
In the Bunk.
At a quarter of t*o In Uw morning
while the world around us waa wrapped
hi deep sleep, Grit Junior, my guide,
made our coflee; at half past two we
were nil ready to start; but we waited
for the. "hour of three! before leaving:
by that time the sun would be Mar
rising.. We proceeded .briskly up the
ns out; the consciousness of a long
journey ahead and, still more, tbe desire lo solvit the problem of our underlining on the same day, hastened our
steps and soon we bad left our last
niuht's quarters far below us. The
mud from the Roththal shelter over the
> oritb- West rib to the top of the "Jung-
fran" has been repeatedly described, so
il shall not be done here again. I do-
si re however to allude to It to tbe ex-
lent of saying tbat it is certainly preferable to the former route, the dangers of the new route being,visible, and
readily overcome by skilled, cool-head-
t'd roririsis, while the old route, conceals
mis isper ted dangers which cannot at a
given moment be avoided. My profer-
eriv. however is baaed on the condition
thnt the rock*are.balij that la, not covered wild. Oil,, btherwiie I could nil
commend the new route at all.
We reached the snow which came
across onr route tor traces of the de-
c aseil, Contrary to expectations ws
v ere sue esaliil and to such an extent
Hint ufter reaching a certain height, we
were enabled to trace the path of the
P risiVd men atop for step, In thia
way we must finally reach a root which
would substantiate tlieir death, This
i niislilerutloit had led me to choose tbe
way from Sferlnaft to Leuterbmnnen
mill hot io Kggtshorn, although the latter route is the shorter.
Folio ling 'ho footprints, we.at laat,
nt drill a.m. reached tbe steep snowy
uscelit that separated ns from the summit of the mountain. Four of the
glider), wtiq had accompanied ua so far
left us here to investigate the Sobaflau-
ener-gliicier, and we continued our aad
journey. ■      _,   ..   \
Ariivinfitffo Obhear tb* summit
wo found to our surprise a stone eh-
closure, a sort of shelter consisting of
four walls about two feei high, where
we found a pocket case with blue lining,
iirnrtait "It J)." and containing the
Irmly of a marmot wrapped in hay,
« bleb my giiWBfiiok with him | rtfn
case wilh sonre morsels of preserved
ment; u piece of omelette u Dig ai a
miiu's luiiiil, wrapped In a piece of
pii|Kir | and four playing carda of Ger-
nun pallcm, spread about on the
ground. Wo regretterl there were no
wr.Hon commiiiilcationi anywhere.
I This enclinuru is about sixty feet
l?niilli\V'iJ from the summit, at a barren simi where Iho wind does not permit the hiiow to lie. ,.
\W-ailvlseil ihe four guides that bad
remained below of this discovery by
Calling to them and they in tnfn informed us tbat the Grimlelwald people
had found the bodies at the foot of the
North-East descent of the "Jungfrau."
We now hnstened to tlio top of tbo
mountain but returned speedily, for wo
were anxious to reach the spot where
the unfortunate men were lying. Moreover tlie weather ami the heavy clouds
in the South and West, urged us to lose
no time.
Pospito tho haste of our descent, we
mutually oxchnnged our respective
ideas as to the probahlo events of tbo
disaster. We nil eamo to the conclusion
thut tliu six men wero surprised by a
tempest, and passed the night in the
"Jungtrau.".
The construction of tho shelter
under the surrounding circumstances
involved considerable labor and was
only undertaken aftor tbe men found
themselves compelled to remain nt
this elevated place for somo time. According to the story of tlio innkeeper ut
Trncbsullucnen, they probably reached
the summit about noon. The construe-
toin of tire .shelter, at most, required
half an hour's time. But we must not
infer that tlie construction was begun
immediately after their arrival. Th -re
is no doubt that they spent somo timo
in the enclosure ns may be inferrrrd
from tho presence of the above n tiutrd
articles. And finally, they cerlain'y
must hnve concluded that the hour
was too fur advanced and the prev.nl-
ing weather to hostile to permit ihe
venture of descent on the same evettin.'.
The men know very well thst it woiit.l
bo Impossible to reach the "Concordia
Shelter" and they hurl proven their
competency in Alpine matters by finding the way to the summit.
I am convinced thnt the disaster occurred on the morning following, the
dny of the ascent, while the men were
descending toward tbe "Koththal-
eaddle."
On the last named route tor a part of
the way, there were found traces. At
ono spot, not far from the summit, the
truces were more numerous and uiurked.
Then they disappeared in tho direction
of the "Jungfrau'.
But knowing that the bodies had been
found we lelt the traces nnrl male,
straight for the "Roththal-saddle''; tlm
guides especially were in a hurry. A i>
riving sufoly nt the siiddlo we w to
surprised to bo confronted on the si I r
of tho "Jungfrau firn", by a vertical
rupture about fifteen feet deep und six
feet wide.
But this was no place for reflection;
we must go down and over. Pitching
down our alpine stairs and knapsacks,
a strong leap forward carried us over,
tbe erovnss and to the glacier. Fortunately for us the latter was covered with
anpw. We continued our journcv lo
the scene of death,-? Most difficult
undertaking, not because of distance or
local conditions but by reason of the
softness of the snow; often wo sank into
tbe snow to our knees.
Soon we noticed, half way np tho
hill, an Upine stall' lodged In n snowdrift; then wo saw a second stall' lixcl
upright a few feet from the bead of one
of the dead men; and directlv we saw
tho six lying within a space of some 50
feet around. Their heads were turned
away from the mountain and the faces
turned down towards the ground. TJiu
position of the bodies left liltle doubt
that not one of the men reached the
glacier alive. The bodies were not
mutilated and were partly without
visible injury. As they were, for tlm
greater part, covered with snow, I'm
tic ne did not appear so liorr Irlo ns one
might think. Knapsacks nn I huts la.'
n air the bodies. The hals hnd I't'cn
fastened to their heads wilh stlii.snn I
must have been severed by lire lrl'.
Thu six corpses wero conncelc.l wi li
eaeh other by a rope, which in so.tie
jiluces wus torn. Before the face of one
of Ihe bodies lay a watch or rather Ihe
case of a watch with a chain; the works
bad dropped out from the case.
The piece were the dead Iny is in the
roiitinuution of a "snow couloir" which
lewis down from the rib lo the mi Idle
of ill j bill. Abovo, in the contnir, there
were traces such as appear iu the snow
nl'ter the passage of snow shoes wh mi
t u crus thns broken through. Kvi-
rleiitly the detrouscd went too much
towards the left in descending to the
Kolhsuttel. Most probably tin lirst
man ofthe line fell and dropped tlio
others ufter him—the work of n moment
—a shriek, and then the silence of
death.
The bodies themselves showed that
the descent must have been very rapid
ami lli:tt,iii their passage the bo lies -lid
not receive many blows hccunsir the
rbckB below tbe couloir project very
Utile. Uno of the men must have fall ii
very heavily because wo cou'd at lirst
count only five. I-ntor iny guide dis.
covered that Ihe shoes of two legs,
which see tiingly were of the same person, hud different nails iu theiu.
Iu the meanwhile we left tbo bodies
ns we had lonn I them ho ns not to
interfere with ths official inquest ut a
future time. With a lust glance at the
lifeless bodies of these once promisin:,
companionable men, and we proc "de I

lots of Fog,
The str. Yosemite, which was due to
arrive horo yesterday, could not got
out of Victoria owing to tho donso fog
that hung over the harbor all day.
Thia morning the fog had partly
oleared away and the steamer left at 7
o'clock for thia city. In tho gulf sho
encountered anothor fog bank which
also hung over the mouth of the river,
and as it would be dangerous to try
and eli'ect an entrance Capt. Budlin
ran up to English Bay and into Vancouver, the fog not being so denso in
that direction. The passengers who
came over on the train from Vancouver expeoting to take the Yosemite
here for Viotoria were obliged to return as the steamer leaves to-night on
the return trip. Arrangements were
made to take our mail matter over by
train to Vancouver. Tho Princess
Louise haa not reached Vancouver yet,
and it is not known at the office hero
if she has returned to Victoria.
Tke neatkea Chinee.
About half-past three o'clock yesterday morning, ns Policeman Cnrty was
making hia rounds at tho eastern end
of Columbia st., ho met a Chinaman
with a auspicious looking bag on his
shoulder. As tho hour was rather
early for a Chinaman to be up, and
remembering thnt chicken roosts had
been Buffering of Into in that vicinity,
the policeman halted him and inquired
what was in the bug. Tho celestial
without a moment's hesitation said ho
had chickens which had been given
him by the people he workod for. On
being asked where he worked the
heathen pointed to a light and said
that was tho place. As the case
seemed to require investigation Carty
asked the Chinaman if ho would be
kind enough to walk back to the house
and prove his story; he agreed to do
so, snd they walked back together.
On reaching the houso they rapped ut
tile door, and just aa it was being
opened the Chinaman darted off like a
shot down the street towards Chinatown, leaving the chickens with the
constable. Carty threw off his heavy
great-coat and started in pursuit, mit
the Chinaman was fleet and escaped.
As might bo expected, the people in
the houso mentioned knew nothing
about Uie Chinaman or the chickens,
and it was only a ruse of tho wily celestial to throw tho policoman off hia
guard. The chickens arc in possession
of tho chief of  police awaiting an
Tbe Late Dr. Trew.
Coaslgaed to the Grave with Military
Humors—A Large Turnout,
The funeral of the Into Dr. Trow,
whioh took place yesterday afternoon,
was probably the largest ever Been in
the city. The widespread feeling of
sympathy for the bereaved family, and
the general respect the deceased was
held iu showed itself in tho manner
in which the whole populace turned
out and honored hia memory. Shortly
after 1 o'clock the people commenced
to gather in the streets between .Mis.
Trew's residence and Trinity Church,
and before the hour set for tho funeral
to leave, fully 1500 persons must hnve
been assembled iu tho vicinity. At
2:30 o'clock the firing party, composed
of the N. W. Rifles, under Capt.
Scoullar, the Artillery, under Capt.
Bole, and a gun carriage, hauled by
four horses, marched to the house of
the deceased. The tiring party opened
ranks und when the coflin was brought
out the order was given to present
arms The coffin, which was wrapped
in a Union Jack, wus placed on tho
gun carriage, and headed by the firing
party the procession proceeded lo tho
church. Tho following gentlemen
wero pall bearers: 1). Springer, It. If.
Alexander, O. E. Corbould, A. Mo-
Bride, Geo, Turner, 1. B. Fisher. The
ordor of procession was as follows:
Firing Party, N. W. Rifles.
Band.
Gun Carriage Carrying Deceased.
Nn. 1 Buttery Artillery.
Retired and Visiting Officers.
Independent Order Odd Fellows.
Citizens on Foot.
Citizens in Carriages.
At Holy Trinity HU Lordship
Bishop SHlitoo, assisted by Archdeacon
Woods, read the beautiful und impressive burial aervioe of the Church of
England, after which the procession
reformed and marched down to Columbia Btreet, and thence to the oom-
etery. The band played the Dead
March in Saul at intervals during the
march and the military escort carried
arms reversed. The funeral procession waa about a third of a milo in
length, and the street was lined with
spectators the whole distance to the
oemetery. On reaching the gates the
firing party halted and rested on their
arms revorsed whilo the gun carriage
bearing the coffin passed between its
ranks. Bishop Sillitoe read tho last
words over the grave, at the conclusion
of which threo volleys from the firing
party finished the obsequies over the
departed friend, brother and comrade.
The troops were then reformed and,
headed by tho band playing lively airs,
marched back to the Drill Shod, whero
they were dismissed. As the Oddfellows filed passed tlie grave each member dropped a sprig of evergreen upon
the coffin in token that the virtues of
their dead brother would always remain green in their memories.
