THE   MOROCCO   AFFAIK.
London, April 1.—There is much
speculation in the American colony
over the press despatch from Gibraltar
announcing the departure from that
place for Tangiera of a detachment cf
British engineers to-morrow. No one
is able to say why they are going, and
in the event ef an attack on Tangier.
by the American war veisels, the presence of English engineers would still
further complicate matters. Americans
here do not expect that the issue of
Morocco affairs will be very serious;
they deride the quarrel and its origin,
but are unanimous in the belief that
the only course left open to the United
States authorities in the circumstance
has beon taken. They regret, however, the weakness of their country's
naval demonstration and greatly fear it
may prove inadequate to the end
sought It is now. believed that the
Moors are determined to yield to nothing short of irresistible force and
Americans and Englishmen alike express the hope that England's move in
sending a detachment of engineers to
Tangier* is net intended to interfere in
the dispute between tbe United States
and Morocco, or in any way of its settlement.
CANADIAN POWDER.

match on good Friday between a team
from the local battery and one from
the "0" battery, the former used the
best English ammunition and the Utter Canadian ammunition. Tbe "C"
battery defeated the local team at
every range and on the total score by
46 points. The local team being a
strong one, makes the evidence very
favorable to the Canadian ammunition.
IRE FRENCH RIFCBUO.
London, Apiil 2.—The St. Peters-
burg Idfe, a weekly publication regarded as reflecting the opinions of the
Russian government, expresiei the
fear that the French republic may fall
during the crisis which it believes bas
only just begun. The completion of
the cabinet selected by II. Floqeet,
points to the almost absolute certainty
that the new premier has stipulated as
a price of the support of aome of his
colleagues that the French parliament
shall be dissolved, and it is equally certain that if a dissolution is not brought
about, the ministry will be overthrown
by combination of the Right—Moderates at the first opportunity that presents itself to such a coalition to accomplish its manifest purpose. The
Germsn press believes that theFloquet
cabinet will in nowise improve the situation.

QUAR11VMEN ON STRIKE.
Younostown, Ohio, Arpril 3.—Nearly 300 employees at the carbon quarries, in Limestone county, uf which
John A. Logan, jr., is general manager, and part owner, went on strike
yesterday because uf a reduction in
wages. At ono of the quarries about
50 men went to work, and the strikers
al tempted to drive them out, but the

strikers. The mob were told to disperse, and they stopped for an instant

the two oflicers remained in their position and fired point blank. An Italian
named Nozero tumbled to the ground
with a bullet in hia knee. This stem-
peded the mob, which became thoroughly frightened and fled. Ten of
Ihe leaders were captured and locked
up. All is quiet at the quarries to-
dsy.

THE STANDARD ON BOULANOib
London April 3.—Tht Standard
says:—"Whatever we may think of
Gen. Boulanger, Boulanger ia a concrete fact that stares the new cabinet
in the face. There remains prosnecU
of agitation for the restoration of Ua
demogogic general. ' Such a deniand
would be irrational, it is tmf. WWt tt
pretty certain to be formidable, Ml it
would be folly to assume that thon
who detest General Boulanger will not
take hip part, if, by doing so, they can
upset the ministry which they dislike
only in a leaa degree."
TBE SMALL-TOX SCQUROE.
. Noqales, Ariiona, Apnl 3.—Small
pox is raging terribly in the small
town of Bacoach, Sonora, in Aritpe
district. The authorities have taken

complete quarantine about town.** It ia
not likely that the disease will spread
to the lsrger towns in that part of tha
state.
THE SANTA IE.
Kansas Dm, April 3.—At a
general and secret meeting of switchmen in the yards here, hut night,
reliable information was presented to
the effect that the Santa Fe Company
would not force the men to handle
"Q" freight. The meeting thereupon
ordered that if such be the cat* the
yard men on that road, who went ost
last evening, would resume work this
morning. In accordance with thia tht
men all took their places sgsin thia
morning. The Santa Fe has posted
notice that the road will receive no
freight whatever, of any kind, to-day.
All other roads are working all right
excepting the Burlington.

THE MICHIOAN CENTRAL TIED Vt.
Chicago, April 3.—Not a wheel
turned in the Michigan Central yards
after seven o'clook this morning,
snd, while no strike was declared, tht
Chicago end of the road wat completely tied up, the engineers, Bremen, and
switchmen all having deserted their
potts. The cause was the pretence in
the yards of a Q freight train, whieh
wu delivered yesterday, and the announcement by the Michigan Central
that they would handle all freight delivered. The statement that no work
was done in the yards after 7 o'clock
this morning, as explained by tha company's representatives, does not men
that the Michigan Central psasf|er
service was interfered with. AB passenger trains thia morning arrived and
departed on time aa usual. The strike
was confined to switch engineen, firemen and switchmen in the local freight
yards of the company.

While the tinited States government is paying off its national debt
at the rate of about $100,000,000 a
year, it is estimated that the debt
of Great Britain will bo entirely
wiped out in loss than sixty years.
According to the financial statement
submitted the other day, tho surplus in tho British treasury nt the
closo of the fiscal year amounted to
nearly tl 1,000,000, After paying
$37,000,000 towards liquidating the
national debt. The total revenue of
the nation last year was about $450,-
000,000, of whioh 8100,000,000 is
obtained from customs duties, and
■580,000,000 from income tax. It
requires about 8150,000,000 a year
to pay interest on the national debt
Canada does not teem to be following the example of either the mother
country or thb great republic across
tho way, for Whilo both of these are
steadily reducing their indebtedness,
she seems to be increasing hers as
steadily. It may be said that tho
increase is chiefly for the extension
of important public works; but, all
the same, the debt has assumed such
proportions as to cause some alarm
in the minds of those who uro not
responsible fdr the increase. It is
o be hoped we have paid all we
shall be called to pay inconsequence
of the O.P.R, and that the time is
not far off when we shall begin to
make substantial reductions in tho
public debt of Canada.
It has been been claimed by The
Columbian that the extinguishment
of the monopoly clause of the 0. P.
II. ngreeniont would probably do
thnt road as much good us harm, inasmuch us it would cause grent expansion in the northwest. This
opinion has just been distinctly endorsed by Mr. Van Homo himself.
In au interview with the premier
aud attorney-general of Manitoba at
Montreal tho other day Mr. VanHorne is reported "to have told
them franaly that he had always believed and strenuously contended to
Messrs. Smith and Stephen that the
monopoly in the northwest was a big
curse to the company, as well es to
the country. He acknowledged that
it had resulted in a great loss to the
company, and said the oompany
would always be able to hold its own
in the country, and the result of
freedom in building roads would
have caused increased progress and
resulted in great benefit to the C. P.
K magnates. They expressed themselves as most desirous of cultivating
the most friendly relations with the
province." We think thero can bo
no doubt but this is the correct
view. The C. P. R. has no reason
to fear any rivalry in the northwest,
and it has every reason to believe
that the development of the country
will be immensely stimulated by the
surrender ot the monopoly; and this
development cannot mil to bring it
a large increase of traffic. So man
has had better opportunities than
Mr. VanHorne to form an opinion
of ths sentiment of the northwest
with respect to monopoly, or the
effect of it on the prosperity and
trade of the country, and he ought
certainly to know what effect the
abandoment of it will have on the
business oi the C.P.R.
own powors before knowing the consequences. A few days ago several
boys were found lying drunk in this
oity. Some of these boys wero tbe
sons'of very respectable parents, and,
it is-presumed, have been carefully
brought up. But they wero able to
procure liquor and under its influence they made beasts of themselves, to the shame and sorrow ot
their parents. We hopo a demand
will be made for stringent legislation for tbo protection of our youth
against those destructive practices.
So long us the laws remain lax, no
parent can tell how soon his own
children mny become victims of the
temptations by whicli they are surrounded. If young people do not
acquire n taste for liquor or tobacco
until they become of age, very few
of them will over acquire it, and
they will be saved from a thousand
ills through life. Every parent
especially ought to be alive to tlio
importance of this question.
Not long ago a dispatch was published in this paper stating that a
bill had passed the U. S. senate
nuking it unlawful to givo tobacco
to any person under legal age. Laws
of a somewhat similar character are
in force in some of the countries of
Europe, and there is a general tendency among legislators to make
stringent provisions for protecting
young people from the evil influences
of this and other pernicious customs.
Persons who oppose prohibition on
the ground that it is an interference
with the liberty of the subject (for
getting that all restrictive legislation
does the same thing), are ready to
admit that young people, whose
minds have not the strength which
comes from maturity and experience,
ought to be surrounded with every
possible safeguard until they came
to the tine of life when they can
makar i their choices intelligently.
Whatever pleas may be offered in
defence of the use of tobacco by those
whole physical and mental powers
have reached maturity (and there is
a difference of opinion on this subject*) every one who has taken the
trouble tb inform himself must know
that it is very injurious to young
people, It weakens both the physical And mental powers, and tends to
produoe« race cf inferior beings
who are incapable of enduring the
burtens of lifo whieh commonly fall
to the lot of man. The same is true
of the use of intoxicating drinks.
We have already expressed the opinion thlt new legislation in this dl-
rectioti il greatly needed in our own
country. One frequently meets
young boys about the streets with
cigars or pipea in their mouths, following the footsteps of their par
enft« grown oji'tMlociates.   "''■--

"   Scrofula
Is one of tlio most fatal scourges whioh
afflict mankind. It is often inherited,
but may bo the result of Improper vaccination, mercurial poison, uncleanllncas,
and various other causes. Chronic Sorea,
Ulcers, Abscesses, Cancerous Hnmore,
and, ln some cases, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of tho blood. This disease can Im
cured by the uso of Ayer's SarsapariUa.

Teacher*' Meeting.
The Kew Westminster Teachers' Institute held its last session yesterday
afternoon. Mr. H. M. Stramberg, B.
A., occupied tho chair. Mr. McKinnon, M. A., rend a very able paper on
"Raising teaching to tho dignity of
divinity, law and physic.'' The writer
claimed that teachers did not receive
tbe rewards to which they were entitled, although the merits of teaching
were oot inferior to that of any of the
above-named professions unless that of
divinity. A lively discussion ensued,
lasting over an hour, after which Mr.
M. Potuieyer read an excellent paper
on " Education in Germany." The instructive and ever eloquent utterances
of Mr. Potuieyer teemed to be greatly
appreciated hy those who woro presont.
After a number of "drawer " questions
were disposed of, a voto of thanks was
given to the chairman and secretary,
and the metting adjourned sine die.
Juvenile Opera.
The Juvenile Opera Company will
play in Herrings opera house on Monday night. The company has played
to crowded houses in Portland, nnd
received unstinted praise from the
press. Tho Telegram, referring to
the" presentation of Olivette, snysj
"The three principal young ladies,
Misses Julia Martin as the Due,
Cainille Cleveland as Olivette, and
Emma Berg as the Countess, the eldest
being scarcely seventeen years of age,
are remarkable in the manner they
handle their respective roles; and besides that they are pictures ot youthful loveliness. They give groat
promise. For Miss M-irtin it can be
said that, if she husbands her voico,
in a few years she will be greater in
male character than Miss Jennie
Winston was in her palmiest days.
Teddy Gamble promises to be a greater comedian than was the famous late
John Howsou, George Began also
promises great things; and for that
earnest, fascinating littlo elf, Stella
May, nine years old, wonderful possibilities aro in store."
Teacher*' Institute Enter!nlnuienl.
The publio entertainment giveu last
evening in the stealing rink, in connection with the tenchers'B institute,
was very largely attended, the room
being filled to its utmost seating capacity. In the absence of the president,
Mr. D. Wilson, B. A,, who is suffering
from a sudden attack of illness, Mr. T.
J. Trapp took the chair. He read a
message from the Rev. Thos. Scouler,
and announced an apology from the
Rev. R. Jamieson, both of whom were
expected tu take part in the proceedings, but were unavoidably absent.
The programme was opened by the
singing of "May Day," iu chorus, by
Mrs. Grant, Mrs. Lyal, Miss Rankin,
and Messrs. Lyal utid Cunningham.
The Rev. Mr. White gavo an address
on the topic, " Why children are sent
to school," and was followed by a sole
from Mias McBride, "When the
Flowing Tide Comes in," which was
very sweetly sung and loudly applauded. The Rev. Mr. Lennie gave an address on " Parents' part in tho child's
education." Next followed a song,
" Lassie," by Mrs. Lyal, which was
very well received by tlie audience,
being loudly applauded. The Rev.
Mr. Haddon addressed tho audience on
tho question, " Why should teachers
be students." Miss Edith Robinson
sung "The boy's best friend is his
mother,1, accompanying herself on the
guitar.    An encore was loudly and
fieraistently called for, but the young
sdy declined to respond, " Ye Gentlemen of England," sung hy Mrs.
Lyal and Messrs. Lyal and Cunningham, was followed by a duet, " When
the Wind Blows in From the Sea," by
Messrs. Lyal and Cunningham. Dr.
Kent, Mr. H. M. Stramberg, B. A,,
and Messrs. Coatham and Dockiill in
succession gave a fow suitable remarks.
The choristers thon sung, " See Our
Oan." It may not be considered out
of place to remark that the latter was
a favorite glee in this province, about a
quarter of a century ago, and that it
Was frequently given with good effect
on a primitive stage. Miss Holden ao-
companiod the singers on the piano,
and performed that task very nicely.
"God Save the Queen," by the wholo
audience, brought the proceedings to a
dose. _________________

tractions hat evening, a large and select audience gathered in Herring's
opera house to enjoy the entertainment
given by Mrs. McCrady and her pupils, assisted by a number of ladies
and gentlemen. The first piece on the
programme was a part song by Mrs.
McCrady and her pupils, which was
rendered very correctly and was much
enjoyed by the audience. "Ah S'estino
ancov mi vuci," sung by Mrs. McCrady,
was rendered in excellent voico and
taste, and was loudly encored. Mr.
^Wing's tlute Bolo was a decided treat,
and merited tho encore demanded.
The piano duet by Miss Hill and Mr.
Tuck waa a very {.'rod recital. "Bond
of the River," a song by Miss Wise,
was very nicely rendered and received
a well merited encore. Tliu "Bells of
Lynn," by Miss Major, wus sweetly
sung; an encore waa demanded nnd responded to, Tho duet "Whon tho
Wind Blows in from the Sea," by
Messrs, Rickman and Hamber, was
well received, and the song "Best of
All," by Miss Homer, wob exceedingly
well rendered, and deservedly encored.
The instrumental quartette, by Mrs.
Beecher and Mi&Bes Dickinson, De-
Beck and Hill, was a splendid performance, executed most gracefully and in
perfect time. "The Boys in Blue,"
