THE   RUtES OF   I'BOOEDUHE   ADOPTED.
London, Feb. 24.—In the house of
commons this evening Mr. W. H.
Smith moved that the houso should
take into consideration the  rules of
Sroceedure in preference to all other
usiness. Mr. Gladstone regretted
that the government should hare seen
lit to propose urgency for the rules of
proceedure, but since they have done
so he would assist in expediting the
discussion of them. Mr. Bradlangh
moved an amendment exoluding Wednesdays from the operation of the
rules, which was defeated by 247 to
to' 150. The house decided to meet
hereafter at 3 p.m., and to close opposed business at midnight and adjourn
at 1 a.m. Provision was made, however, to carry the consideration of important business beyond midnight.
The reforms were adopted and voted
into immediate operation.
PROTECTION IN EN0LAND.
London, Feb. 24.—English journals,
especially the provincial papers, view
with increasing alarm the possibility of
the surrender of Great Britain to a
policy of partial protection in the shape
uf a tariff on imports. Lord Salisbury's
avowal, made a short time ago to a fair
trade delegation, that he thought a
tariff might safely be put upon a few
articles which now enter the English
ports free, ia taken as a legitimate
ground for the feeling that the government may be induced to think a, it
doe,, and that the country may soon
be committed to a sort of fair trade, if
not to a moro extensive tariff policy,
HUNTING   POACHERS.
London, Feb. 24.—In the caso at
Ipswich, between a gatekeeper and
poacher, in which the poacher wu
charged with asaulting the gatekeeper,
Judge Dentnan held that gatekeepers
had no right to arrest him and to hunt
poachers ns if they were wild beasts.
He said that poaching was only a misdemeanor. The jury acnuitteed the
poacher who had severely wounded
the gatekeeper claiming it was done in
•elf-defence.
; .Advices from Lake Nyanza atate
that the Arabs had attacked the-Scotch
mission at that place in December,
1887, and set fire to the buildings.
The white residents took refuge in the
mud fort and remained there for five
days when a force of friendly natives
arrived and the Arabs retired.
A OOOD MOVE.
New Yobk, Feb. 25.—The Spanish
consul-general received information
from Havana today that the Spanish
customs officers were about to take
effective measures in regard to thl
opium frauds. They will arrest all of
the consignees who snore before thl
U. S. consul they had received thi
opium, and will also seise and libel all
of the vessels upon whioh opium wot
reported to be shipped to Havana.
Bl'SSIA ADDBESSES THE POWERS.
London, Feb. 25.—Thi Times has a
dispatch from Paris which states Russia has sent to the treaty powers two.
notes embodying ber proposals with
reference to Bulgaria.
THE UNION PACDIC  SETTLEMENTS.
Washinoton, Feb. 25.—Charles
Francis Adams, president of Union
Paoific, and Storey, counsel for the
company, to-day were heard by the
senate committee on Pacific railways,
in support of the propositions made by
the Union Pacific for settlements of its
indebtedness to the government. The
arguments are practically the same as
made to the house. The senate committee next Saturday will hear Anderson and Littler, special Paoific railroad
commissioners, and Joseph Johnson)
railroad commissioner, on the same
subjects.
WENT TO THE   BOTTOM.
New Obleans, Feb. 26. — Th«
French ship De Marthe sunk here yesterday, carrying down with her the
Valletta dock and entailing a loss of
$200,000. The vessel was formerly
a steamship, but some years ago the
machinery was taken out of her and
she was fitted up as a sailing vessel.
The change made her top-heavy and

The first important fuct that
strikes ono on opening tho report of
tlio minister of mines for 1887 is
that gold mining in Britisli Columbia is surely passing into tho hands
of the Chinoso. Of • thu 2312 men
employed in the gold mines during
the past season, 495 were wllite
men and 1847 were Ohinese and Indians. Tho next fact is that tlio
totolproduct of gold reported amounts
only to $693,709, which is the lowest since 1857. It mny bo said,
howovor, that there is vory groat
difficulty in ascertaining tho amount
of gold taken by tho Chinese miners,
ns many of thcin carefully conceal
their earnings. This may account
partly for the smnllness of the
amount reported. Hr. Uowron,
gold commissioner for Cariboo, intimates that another cause which
operated against gold mining in
many places was the unusual dryness of the season, many of tho hy-
draulio claims being forced to shut
down during a great part of the season for want of wnter. There were
also & large number of men employed on quart?, claims and in prospecting, none of whom have produced
any gold to speak of during tho season. The propecting of the season
has not developed any new diggings
of striking richness. Oayoosh Creek
has produced a good doal of gold,
with excellent prospects for the future, while in Cariboo, Kootenay,
and other localities the field of operations has been considerably extended, and tho belief is confirmed
that the country still contains enormous wealth in gold. The results
of operations on the various quartz
ledges have not been ns practical as
it was hoped they would be. A great
deal of labor and money have been
expended on quartz ledges during
the year, and in Cariboo alone 100
new quartz claims have been taken
up. In Lillooet, Kootenny, Kamloops and Similkameen districts,
also, many promising quartz claims
have been located. The Illecillewaet
division of Kootenay district has
become famous for its rich deposits
of argentiferous galena, of which
our readers have already heard a
great deal. But there are very few
private individuals with means
enough to utilize tho valuable ore,
as large expenditures will be neces
srvry to profitable mining. A good
many of those who held claims here
have sold them at very moderate
figures. The largest transaction recorded is the sale of a two-thirds interest for 1516,000. The value of
ore shipped from theso mines is estimated at about $21,000. Home of
the companies are spending a good
deal of money on their claims.
Several new discoveries of gold, silver and lead are reported from Kootenay, but tho actual yield has not
been large.. In part of the Kooky
Mountains known as the Crow's
Nest, lying within Kootenay district, very valuable seams of coal
have been found. Gold Commissioner Vowell reports that there are 15
seams in sight, three of which are
respectively li, 25, and 30 feet in
width. These are all situated on
one hill. The coal has been classified by Mr. Dawson as a species of
anthracite. The approximate value
of gold produced in the principal
gold producing districts is reported
ns follows: Barkerville, §79,373;
Lightning Creek, $30,700; Ques
nellemouth,$51,000;Keithley Creek,
$66,600; other places, $20,000; total
for Cariboo district, $247,673. Cas-
siar, $60,485; Kootenay. $37,900;
Lillooet, $106,000; Omineca, $13,-
000; Yale, $158,200, of which $90,-
000 came from Granite Creek, and
$128,000 from tho Similkameen
district. The ooal mines of the province show a larger yield than on
any previous year, namely 413,360
tons, nn increase of 86,724 over
1886. The amount exported was
334,839, and about 96,855 tons
were used in the province. Three
mines were in operation, employing
777 whitp men, 525 Chinese, 2 Indians, and 11 boys. Wages paid to
white men, from $2 to $3.75 per
day; to Chinamen, $1 to $1.25.
Value of machinery and plant, $719,-
000. The explosion which occurred
on May 3rd interfered considerably
with the out-put of coal, and resulted iii Uie loss of 147 lives. It was
thought by Borne that the importation of anthracite coal from Anthracite might affect the demand for
British Columbia ooal, but this has
not been the case. The anthracite
coal hns not given satisfaction, and
if no accident should occur the
out-put of our mines this year is
likely to be for in excess of 1887.
Jas. Shannon, Leaskdale, writes: "For
many years my wife was troubled with
chilblains, and oould get no relief until
about two years ago; she was then not
able to walk, and tho pain was then so
excruciating that she could not sleep at
night. Your agent was then on his regular trip, and she asked him if he could
cure her. He told, her Dr. Thomas'
Boleetrto OU wa» a sure cure. She trierl
It, and judge of her astonishment wlrra
ln a few days the pain wm alt allayed
and the foot restored to its natural condition. It is also the best remedy for
burns and bruises I ever used."

Elkanah Watson on Temperance.
Elkanah Watson, in his "Memoirs
of Men and Times of the Revolution,"
speaks of temperance as follows:
"In my travels in Europo I found
the northern nations much addicted to
intemperance, but the southern almost
free from the fatal vice. In evidence
of this truth, it is said that by the laws
of Spain no man can give testimony
who has onco been detected in liquor.
"1 can truly say, aud say with groat
pleasure, that during a residence of
five years in France I saw but two men
disguised by liquor, and they were of
tho very dregs of society. No decent,
men could be thus exposed without
being banished from all female society
without indelible marks of disgrace.*"
Mr. WaWon attempts to traco the
national habit ot intemperance to our
origiu as colonies
In tlie yonr lT'-'l my destiny curried
me by water from Schenectady to Sen-
oca Lake, lt was then like a voyage
to tlie Enst Indies; few had made it
except Indian traders. I went iu an
open bateau to spy out tho wilderness
and to ascertain the practicability of
canals to oonnect tho great western
waters with tho Atlantic Ocean, was
compelled to uec impure wator,and had
for six weeks no covering but the bluo
canopy of heaven, spangled with stars
except an occasional shelter. Under
these circumstances 1 for tho tirst time
contracted tho habit of grog-drinking;
fortunately forme and mine it wns but
temporary. On my return to my family I regularly took my 4 o'clock grog,
then 4 and 0 o'clock, nud soon 4, ti and
8 o'clock. Whon 1 reached this point
my best friend, justly alarmed, gave
me a gentle wrap over the knuckles.
I instantly put my foot down, determined that tho love of liquor should
never be my muster. It is in this way
by indulgence in tho habit that drunkards are made."
There is a vory important remark
Mr. Watson made ill tho abuve in which
he states that it is his belief that tho
national habit of intemperance came
over from England with the Puritans.
Mr. Watson was a descendant from an
old Puritan.
The Power of Example.
At a large boarding-house in tho
south, u guest was asked at dinner if
sho would have some plum-pudding
with wino sauce. "I will havo some
of the plum pudding, but none of tho
wino sauce," was her reply. Her
friends laughed at her, and insisted
that she should take some, but she replied, '*I declino upon principle; I
take no alcohol in any form."
The conversation turned to other
topics, but after dinner a young man
whom slio had noticed sitting opposite
her at dinner, approached her, nnd,
requesting a word with her said : "I
want to tell you how much good you
did mo to-day by your prompt and decided rejection of the wine-pudding
sauce. 1 had been deliberating what
I would do, being strongly tempted by
the smell of it, which reached me. I
think I should havo yielded to my de-
siro and tho solicitations of my friends,
who called my reBoluticn a whim, if I
hnd not hoard your refusal. That gave
me the courage to resist tho temptation, i have an inherited appetite for
liquor, but by tho grace of God I havo
been enabled to control it; but if I hnd
got a taste of wine to-day, I feel confident 1 should have fallen again."
' It was a very light thing for that
woman to put aside an indulgence
which cost her no sacrifice whatever.
But by so doing she gave strength and
courage to one whoso feet had well-
nigh slipped. We need not look at
these things, not merely in tho light
of personal desires or personal experience, but with reference to the condition and dangers of others around us.
We know not who may bo benefited
or injured by our notions. Our decision, which may bo but a passing,
transient choice, may forge the fetter
whieh shall bind eome other soul in
bonds never to be broken. "It is good
neither to eat flesh, nor to drink wino,
nor anything whereby thy brother
stumblcth, or is offended, or is mode
weak" (Rom. xiv. 21). "Wo then that
are strong ought to bear the infirmities
of tho weak, and not to please ourselves" (Rom. xv l).
Ool. W. F. Cody, of the Wild West
show, is a teetotaler, and says that all
the members of the company aro abstainers generally,their hazardous work
requiring complete self-possession at
all times. All the great marksmen of
the world are abstainers, the "-"
of stimulants being fatal to a
aim.
Scrofula

"As soon as the recruits, attracted by tho
nrinlfold consideration set forth ou the
pokier oulsidc, come in to us," tho officer
ta;d, "they are examined by our physician
' who'test tneir constitutions in every possible
■Aiii-.nati*. In case they pass this ordeal, which
W.^ Vi'i'V severe, tliey are examined as to their
iiioiinu qiiiilllmitiiitis, to ascertain wlietltcr
they are able  to read  and write, as re-
quired,   Those who eome through this are
i tuiii allowed tn enlist for five years' service
in tbe corps."
"Pn any of the men rc-cnliet after serving
tho full period?" asked the reporter.
"Oh, yes," was the replv. "I should say
that a majority of tlinn do so. You must

Young Mim-leil Folk.
In this country, many matrimonial
engage inonta are broken off because the
'ami.ies aiv antagonistic. The young
iubplo may love each other, but ono
utato mother-in-law hates the other,
and hencj there is quarrel, discussion,
and separation, "My daughter shall not
live with Mrs. Ho-and-so," says Mrs.
Tins or-that. They manage this thing
better abrond, by deciding that the young
rotiplu shall live in their own house,
irivu their own income, and be not dependent on either mother-in-low. While
.he f unity relations are kept up with
even greater vUor than with us, yet the
imlepetidence of the parties to be married
is inspected.   In this one respect the
Ktlijtiette of engagements abroad ia far
utter than ours, It is a sensible outlook, perhaps lacking that wild romance
■whii h is supposed to accompany a true-
love match, but it has its advantages in
tbe happiness of security. Nothing is
left to ohiiheo or caprice, and the "too
much mother-in-law, which sometimes
wrecks thu happiness of young people
both bufore and after marriage in America, is carefaUy ganvded agaiujfc.	
H« didn't want tu bu a CWC
Two trlcyclers chanced to halt by tho
roadside for a brief rest just as a group
ol Irish laborer.'! wero passing on their
way home from work. Attracted by the
bright new machines, two of tho men
pausud a moment to look ut tliom.
, "If you only had u tricycle, Pat," ba\A
one of the'eyelets to the nearer of tho
iinen, "you could ride to and from your
employment,"
"Hide is it yo say, thin ? said Pat, with
a contemptuous look at the combination
of man and wheels. "Do yo think I
cam' from the ould country to drive a
donkey-cart, bedad, and be mo own
horse?"
Tablc-Covcr.
The Ingenuity of woman is taxed to the
utmost to invent some new way of bordering a table-cover. Hero is a pretty
and simple way: Suppose the cloth is ol
dark enmson or cardinal; cut the edge
(enlarge scallops,nml pink tho scallops,
then around the edge and below it, so
Hhat it mny bo seen for about four inches
In-low tlio cardinal scallops, put u ptrip
of bluo either of felt or tlannel. Scallop
kind pink the edge of this. The strip
may be of velveteen if you choose, 'i'lw
'corners of thu spread may bo em.broid*
eroil, an i for a square tablo this makig
an elective covering.
An Bsecllent Kwrloe*
Onions nre about tho best nervine known,
o medicine is really so efficacious in case
if nervous prostration, as they tone up a
row-nut system in a very short time. Their
|l:sr rliout powers are also most valuable,
specialty in times of epidemic. Ithas been
■cpeatcdly observed that an onion patch in
'be immediate vicinity of a house, acts as a
frtield ngainst the pestilence which is very
ipt to pass over the inmates of that house.
Hired onions in a siok room absorb nil the
-erms of contagion. During nu epidemic
'.ie confirmed onion-enter should, however,
,'H'liew his usual diet, as the germs of disease

"It Saved My Life"
Is a common expression, often heard
Irom thoso who have realized, hy personal use, tho curative powers of Ayer'a
Clittrry Pectoral. ** I cannot say enough
ln praise ol Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, tailoring as I do that, hut (or its use, I
should long since havo died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six montbs ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Gough, which deprived
me of Bleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at onco. By continued use
this medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. B.
C'oburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I havo used Ayor's Cherry Pectoral
lor ovor a year, and sincerely bolieve I
shonld havo been in my gravo, had lt
not been for this medicine. It has cured
mo of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
Ior which I Trad almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—P. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Provinco of Ontario.
Ayer's Chorry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Peotoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely rostored my health.—Lizzie
M.Allen, West Lancaster, Ohio,     tt

The most interesting part of yesterday's performance was the presentation of u report from the committee
appointed to investigate the charges of
disloyalty brought against Hon. $Ir.
Dunsmuir. The report stated that
Mr. Dunsmuir hnd appeared beforo
tho committee and proved to its satisfaction that he was innocent of the
charge, and it recommended that the
impeachment resolution bo oxpunged
from the printed proceedings of the
house. Tho speaker asked to be allowed aday'dr two to decido whether
tho houso had such authority. Mr.
Humphreys did not go before tho committeo. The resolution to remove
Hon. Mr. Turner from the cabinet because he signed the Duncan letter was
voted down on a division of 8 to 15.

It is a good rule to accept only such
medicines as are known to be worthy of
confidence. It has been the experience
of thousands that Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral
is the best medicine ever used for throat
and lung diseases.
The Atlantic express ran into a mud
slide on Monday about 10 miles east of
Donald. The engine jumped from the
track and would have plunged into the
Columbia river but for the strength of
the coupling link, which held it fast to
the train. The slide caused a delay of
24 hours.
Everybody needs a spring medicine.

Mr. Jenkins wishes to correct the
statement made in yesterday's issue that
he was chasing a cow on Front street,
and endeavoring to secure a hold of its
tail. Mr, Jenkins says it was a steer he
chased and that he would scorn to chase
a cow, but as he was unable to stcei a
particularly straight course at the time,
we hold the first statement correct.
Complaints keep coming in nbout the
dangerous condition of Vedder's Creek,
where the bridge wu carried away
about a year ago. There is no way of
crossing the place, nnd lately some persona who attempted it came very near
losing their lives. We hope prompt
steps will be hken to have a bridgo
built across the creek.
Chief Engineer Corbctt, of the fire department, called a meeting for last night
fn Hyack Hall for the purpose of organising ft hook ftnd ladder company. The
chief, assistant chief, and a member of the

and it seems rather strange if out of alt

The  banquet tendered Mr. L. L.
Doane at the Colonial last night was a
perfect success in overy way, and it is
safe to say the house never contained
a more jovial or enthusiastic gathering
than on this occasion. The gentlemen
present represented almost every profession and branch of business in the
city, and few of Westminster's representative citizen's wore absent from the
board. The table, which ran the
length of tho dining room, was most
artistically laid out and fairly groaned
under the array of good tilings set
upon it. Tho menu provided embraced
almost every imaginable luxury, and,
without exception n better dinner wns never sat down to
in Now Westminster. Mb. I. B.
Fisher graced the head of tlio table
and performed the duties of chairman
in a very able manner. On his right
sat the guest of the evening, Mr.
Doane, and on the left Mr. Townsend,
inspector oF the Bank of British Columbia. Capt. Scoullar filled the Vice-
chair, and wns supportedon the right by
Mr. J.C. Keith, of Vancouver. At the
request of the chairman all militia officers were in uniform, it being probably
the last occasion on which Mr. Donne
would appear as an officer of the rifles.
"Tho Queen," propoaed by the
chairman, and the " Governor-General" and "Lieut.-Governor," proposed by tho vice-chairman were the
first toasts of the cveniiig, aud received
the usual honors.
" The Canadian Militia " was proposed by Mr. Peter Grant in a very
witty speech, in which he made reference to his own services on behalf of
the country. Capt. Scoullar, Lieut.
Mowat and Lieut. Glover responded,
after which Mr. Rickman sang, "Old
King Cole " in rattling style.
Tho toast of the ovening, "Our
Guest," was proposed by Mr. J. S,
Clute in an excellent speech iu which
he referred to Mr. Doane's popularity
and the general regret that he was
boing removed from Westminster. ' As
a proof of the estimation Mr. Donne
was held in, the speaker alluded to the
petition, signed by every prominent
citizen, requesting that lie be allowed
to remain. The toast was drank amidst
the greatest enthusiasm and "He's a
Jolly Good Fellow" wns conoluded
with three times threo and a "tigor."
Mr. Donne Baid no ono regretted his
leaving Westminster ns much as he did
himself, but as the change meant promotion and he wns trying to reach the
top of the ladder it was fur the best
that he should go. In n very feeling
speech Mr. Douno referred to his many
pleasant associations in Westminster,
and the c-rdial way he had been treated in both business nnd social circles,
He also referred to his connection with
the rifle company and Union Lodge,
both of which he parted from wilh the
deepest regret. In conclusion the
speaker expressed his thanks to the
gentlemen assembled for the banquet
gwen in his honor, and took his scat
amidst much applause.
Mr. Keary sang a song in excellent
style, after which Mr. Grant proposed
"The land he loaves and tho land he's
going to."
Mr. Townsend responded in a very
happy speech, and explained that
though he had given tho petition on
Mr.,Doane's behalf every consideration
yet he could not grant the petitioners'
request, for the change meant promotion; and when tho bank had an offi-
cer so deserving as Mr. Doane, he must
be pushed ahead. The directors were
aware of Mr. Doane's efficiency and
his interests would bo well watched.
Songs were sung by Dr. Smith and
Mr, Rickman, and npplnudcd to the
echo.
"The Learned Profcssi -ns" brought
out speeches from Mr. McColl, Mr.
Eckstein and Mr. Armstrong, and the
Indies were most lovingly mentioned
by Messrs. Parkea, Eckstein und Ogle.
Tho healths of Mr. Fisher nnd Mr.
Keitli werB received and drank vory
enthusiastically and neat speeches were
mnde by both gentlemen. Song and story
followod until two o'clock, when "Auld
Long Syne" and a hearty good-bvo
to " Our Guest,■" brought the banquet
to a close.
tipper Nicola Mines.
Tho Nicola mines are haying n big
boom at present. Messrs. Marks nnd
Rutledge arc among the first to take
stops to develops their most promising
quartz claim, which is in the vicinity
of Mr. G. Henderson's "Star" mine,
which is, without doubt, the best mine
on Mineral Hill. Judging by the gang
of men and plant employed by M. and
R, they will b-jou know what is nt the

A special meeting of tho city council
was held on Thursday evening to consider
a communication received from W. N.
Bolo, M. P. P., recommending the council to take immediate steps to define the
limits intended to he included In the new

DRAWING ROOM.
London, Feb. 24. — The Queen'a
drawing room held at Buckingham
Palace to-day was rather slimly attended, owing in a great measure to the
fact that the weather was about as
disagreeable ns it could be. Tlie principal feature in the affair of any interest to Americans was tho presentation to hpr majeBty by Mrs. Phelps of
Miss Louisa Bonynge, of Snn Francisco, whose dress and diamonds attracted general attention.
A RADICAL BLACKBALLED,
London, Feb. 24.—The action uf
tho Athtencum Club in blackballing
the Radical Cnuon McColl on political
grounds, despite the influence of his
aristocratic supporters, has created a
good dual of talk and stir, if not a littlo bad blood. The lords and gentlo-
men who voted and worked for his
election wero of all Bhades of politics,
it Is understood tlmt a great stress was
laid, as an argument in favor of his
becoming a member of tho club, upon
his fame in connection with the Bulgarian atrocities agitation, his eminent
services in the cause of humanity upon
that and other occasions powerfully
appealed to Mr. John Bright and
others who, have for many years posed
as philanthropists pur sang. But tho
Birmingham statesman's breadth of
viowB has in these days become woo-
fully contracted by the fog cf intolerant opposition to Home Rule aud the
Canon fell a victim to the purblind
prejudice of himself and his coterie.

urging thorn to hold back their wheat

as it is believed they will be able to
realize better prices.
