English Politics.
The situation in English politics
in very interesting.   Ite most striking phenomenon is the evident tendency toward a reunion bf the Liberal party, and consequently to a
reconstruction of  party lines.    It
seems clear, however, that Mr. Glad
stone will mak,e no serious ohange
in   his   Irish  policy, and equally
clear that neither Mr. Bright nor
Lord Hartington will accept that
policy.     Meanwhile Mr. Goschen
goes into the Tory administration,
and  Lord  Randolph Churchill is
thrown over, and Lord Iddesleigh,
a  very liberal Tory, pushed out of
the aabinet liy Lord Salisbury, dies
suddenly, and his death, under the
circumstances,  oasts   an   eminous
gloom upon the situation.     Lord
Salisbury finds the arrangement of
his ministry u very difficult task,
and Mr. Chamberlain has evidently
discovered that his position is ex
tremelr unsatisfactory.   Lord Hart-
ington's contention is untenable that
he and his friends have as good a
right   as   Mr.   Gladstone   and his
friends to call themselves the Liberal party,     He holds that because
tliat party has never uoceptoJ the
Irish policy of Mr. Gladstone, while
the country has rejected it at the
eleotion, it cannot be made the test
of Liberalism.    It is untenable bu
cause the great mass of the party
did support that policy in parliament and at the polls.   Mr. Bright,
indeed, may say with truth that he
is a Liberal in every sense of the
term, but that he does not acknowledge   home   rule  to be u Liberal
principle.      He cannot, certainly,
become a Tory.   But neither oan he
deny that what the great majority
of the Liberal party approves must
be accepted us the Liberal policy.
Mr. Bright is therefore a Liberal
who ditloiw  with Jtigufmi-tVj u,pou a
most important public question. He
occupies s position like that of revenue   reform   Republicans in this
country.     The result in England
cannot be forecast.     There is undoubtedly a"general impression that
the ministry is not strong or durable.   Mr. W. H. Smith uan hardly
be a capable leader of the house of
commons, and Mr. Gladstone, who
is the master of debate in parliament, will have a moral advantage
over Mr. Goschen, because, although
an exceedingly able wan, and ad
mirably equipped for debate, Mr.
Goschen is in the difficult position
of a Liberal in a Tory government.
Should the Irish question become
one of coercion in the sense of suspension of the ordinary course of
law in Ireland, which is the practical significance of that word, the
anti-home-rule  Liberals   would   bo
drawn more and more closely to the
Tow camp.    That the Tory view
leads  to the policy of coercion in
the sense of extreme measures is
evident from Lord Salisbury's recant speech ut the Oity Conservative Club.     He said that the Nationalist   "plan   of   campaign"   is
simple swindling and fraud; it is a
concerted repudiation of legal debts,
and the beginning of anarchy,   The
question, he said, is not one of the
mercy of landlords, but of the obligations ot debtors.    In it word, the
Tory   ground   is thnt there is nu
Irish grievance whatever; thai the
laws are equal for the wliole realm;
that Irishmen are as much bound to
obey them as Englishmen or Scotchmen, and that if they refuse the
government must compel obedience,
or be practically overthrown. Whatever limy  be the ultimate practical
remit of the Round Table conference, and tlmt can lis disclosed only
gradually, it is hardly possible tint
the Tory ministry, which would full
from  its own weakness except, tor
the prosfiicc of a Whig Liber.il,
oan   long  endure.      The   Liberal
Unionists  ate  not satisfied   with
tlieir own pmspects, and  lliey can
hardly   organiae   a   third   parly.
While the  Irish question  is open
they   must  eitln-r  return   tn  the
Liberal   ranks  or  vole   with the
Tories.   Some of them will probably take the former course, and
the tendency of the latter will lie,
like   Mr.   Goschen, BriutluiiNy to
identify themselves with the Tories.
It icrtiinly seems not improbable
that Mr, . Gladstone may be once
moro i j prime.. minister. — Harper's

The Fishery Fight.
It is unfortunate that so many
men whose Irish extraction makes
them the natural enemies of Great
Britain and Iier possessions occupy
prominent and responsible positions
uuftr the United States government. Whenever an Irishman gets
a fair chance he generally comes
well up to the top of the pile.
In our own country Irishmen and
their descendants have played no
insignificant part. They have often
filled the..highest positions within
the gift of me people, and some of
our most distinguished and-successful governors have been sons of the
"ould sod." But Irish-Canadians,
as a rule, have been loyal to the
Dominion and the empire, and the
achievements of their genius and
industry have afforded unalloyed
gratification everywhere. But Irish-
Amepjanir'itTe a very different sort.
They as,, thij kind ist stuff out of
wKidk'Mians and dynamiters and
Molly Maguires are made, and thoy
never miss a chance to give practical shape to their traditional hatred
of tjhe Bptish, All Irish-Americans (are n$|tj$o, but a great many
of tfeem ara, and it is unfortunate that
thesethaVe got into official positions
whtjjt they can find.opportunities
to disturb the public mind in the
gratification of their own personal
animosities. Just now there is
muoh bad blood between Canada
and the United States over the fishery question, and it cannot be de
nied that this embarrassment is to a
great extent the result of meddlesome Irish - American politicians
whose hatred of everything British
has suggested the possibility of embroiling the two nations in acts of
open hostility. These men know
how inflammable a thing public
opinion is, and how easily the eyes
may be blinded by self-interest.
They know, also, the power of Irish
prejudice and the strength of the
Irish, rote jn America. It is not
their first wish to see the fishery
dispute amicably settled, but rather
to see it widen from a dispute of
words to one of blows. If the
United States and Great Britain
coujct by" any means be drawn into
hostile" corfflict over the fisheries,
what a grand opportunity for these
haters of British rule to unfurl the
flag of rebellion in Ireland, and
with sword and dynamite dissolve
the union! Tha. fishery dispute is
not a controversy of our seeking.
Under the provisions of the Washington treaty, American fishermen
enjoyed privileges in Canadian waters almost" equal to those of the
Canadians themselves. It was not
Canada, tout the United States, who
gave notice that the fishery provisions of that treaty were to end.
When that notice came into effeot,
American fishermen seem to have
found that the privileges secured
by that treaty were very much more
valuable than they had supposed,
and they were not willing to let
them slip. They proceeded, there
fore, to carry on their operations
just as they had been doing under
the treaty of Washington. The
Canadian government claimed that,
having surrendered the fishery
clauses of the Washington treaty,
American fishermen could now claim
nothing beyond the provisions of
the .treaty of 1818. It is the enforcement of that treaty which has
produced the present trouble, and
out of which these agitators hope to
perpetuate discord. Long ago President Cleveland recommended the
appointment of a commission to adjust'the fishery dispute, but the
Democratic house refused its assent
to so reasonable a proposition. It
was not a settlement they wanted,
as we Jiave said, but a casus belli.
Having struck out the fishery clauses
of th'e Washington treaty, and refused to appoint a commission to
adjust the matters iii dispute, the
American house now proceeds to
pass a bill ih which it empowers the
president to pursue a policy of re
taliatujh tpwafds Canadians. Re-
taliatitfh ortre* ordinary 'circiim-
stancfi may be justifiable and politic; but the action of the Canadian
government with respect to the enforcement of the fishery laws is
based upon the treaty of 1818, and
as long .as the, JT. S. government
refmis to negotpte for a modification of fthat' treaty, it must be content ;tjb vccept the consequences nf
its own folly. The retaliation bill
gives the president power to close
American ports to Canadian vessels,
and to prevent Canadian railways
Mm carrying goods through American territory whenever he thinks
the eiroumstances justify, Of course
the object of suoh a measure is to
force the Dominion government to
make concessions on the fishery
question, but we are afraid no such
result will follow. Either the treaty
of 1618 njust, form the basis of
aotion, or another treaty must be
entered .into;; but it is manifestly
unfair and unreasonable to expect
Canada to give Amerioan fishermen
privileges to which tbey nre not en.
titled so long as they refuse to permit Canadian fish to enter their
market!. It hns already been intimated that the Canadian govern
ment is willing to consider proposals for reasonable modifications in
the treaty of 1818 if desired by the
United States; but so long ns the
American proposals come in the
shape of bluff and bluster they will
end in nothing but irritation. If
our neighbors really seek for an
amicable and just settlement of the
affair, let thein adopt the recommendation of their own president and
arrange for the appointment of a
joint commission; or lot the matter
be submitted to arbitration.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LI'MITED.)
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known aa tho
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tho Britisli Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster.
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
the new company is to continue the publication of tho BiVrisn Columbian newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thoro will be no
slackening of the -energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving fnll value for their money.
The Columiuan wil! continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered in the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, thc book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over hy Mr. T. K.
Pcarson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable tbat a daily newspaper
shonld be maintained in this city, and
tho new company asks for public patronage on thc ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
consistent with its professions. Iu consequence of this business change all ac*
counts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that tho books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

To tho Electors or the District of
Sew Westminster.
GENTLEMEN.—In oflerlhg myself to
the Dlstrlet of Westminster to represent
you lu tbe Commons this coming opening of the House, I do so lu till sincerity,
believing that I can do moro tor your Interests than any of the gentlemen that
have come forward so tor, I a*m a thorough
Conservative and In ontiro sympathy
with the present government, who have
proved themselves the friend in need and
In deed to British Columbia.
Gentlemen, I imve my private feelings
and opinions on most of the questions of
the day, but if I go to thc House by your
sanction to represent you, I shall submit
to your commands uud directions whieh
you can send mn uk tlie different-quest ions
of the day present themselves and ns circumstances, iiitcrestsnndopinlonschangc
on tlio spot, to be represented} for I hold
that In going tu parliament by your vote
and pleasure, I go as your trusted agent
and notns your lord, und master,as some
have thought and acted accordingly whon
out of your reach.
Temperance, gentlemen, Is ono of the
questions thnt, trouble tho district at the
present time. Now, gentlemen, when the
right time arrives for us to recelvo prohibition nono will bo found to work for that
measure with more sincerity or energy
than I, nnd no government on earth will
bo more happy to grunt thut measure than
they; but the time hus not arrived yot, I
am sorry Io sny, and I say further, that
the time for prohibition entirety rests
with tho temperance people themselves,
for as soon ns they provo tbolr'slncerlty In
tbe causo by petitioning pari Inmontto put
u tax on teu, coffee and other articles, and
on Income if nocessnry, thereby providing
revenue to carry on the govornment, then
and then only can they succeed In their
enusc, then and thou only enn the government comply with their wishes. Money
Is the root of all evil, so parsons'tell us,
nnd money Is the mighty lever thut Is going to lift ynu Into i imt haven of temper*
ance you all so desire and dream of.
Gentlemen, I fully realize the Importance of your selecting a good and proper
man to represent you nt Ottawa, and I also
fully realize the fact that I at so great distance am working to n great disadvantage; but, gentlemen, I trust to your Intelligence and tothe friendship of my old
friends, und feel satisfied you will do Justice to yourselves who nre to bo benefitted
or Injured by your selection.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I undertake
to Bervo you sincerely nnd faithfully In
nil things if sent to tho Commons to represent you there, and If yon do not I enn
stop at homo, help you when I can, and
sincerely wish you may be as well served
as 1 would liko to serve you myself
Gentlemen, you can givo mo my answer
nt tbe polls, and whether I go or stay I
slinll always remain
Yours truly and sincerely,
(Ie2t-dlew-wtc        JAMES CODVILLE.

GOVERNMENT DEFEATED ON THE SPEAKERSHIP
(Special per (J. P. R. Wires.)
QuiDEO, Jan, 27.—The provincial
legislsture met st 3 o'clook thii afternoon. There waa a tremendous croud
of spectator! aud great eicitemenf.
Taillon met the house aa premier, but
his cabinet has uot been completed.
When Ross resigned his resignation
carried wiih it the resignation of the
wholo cabinet, and Flynn, one of tbe
ablest members of the Roas government, hus not entered the. Tailless
cabinet. After the session opened tbu
lieutenant governor withdrew till ai
apeakor had been elected. Taillon
moved that Fauoher be apeaker. Mer-
cier rose to move in amendment that.
Marchand be spssker. Meroier was
received with tremendous applanso
from all parts of the house. His
amendment was carried by a vote of
SO to 27, giving a majority of 0'
sgsinit the government. There was.
interne excitement when tho. remit
became known, and Marchand took
ths ohair. Mereier then demanded
explanations from the government,and.
asked whst it proposed to do about iti.
defeat. Taillon declined to mako any
■tat.ment, and moved an adjournment, Meroier opposed adjournment,
until explanation! were given. Tail-
lon'i motion wu defeated by 7 votei.
Mereier denounced the government,
for having retained offlce two months
sfter detest at the polls, and declared
it an act of usurpation. Gannon ac-
ouied tho government of clinging to
office for Ilie purpose of helping the
Dominion election., Taillon wai repeatedly hilled and hooted by the
galleries,   Speaking continued till 0
o'olock, when the house adjourned till
3 o'clock to-morrow.
Quebec, Jan. 28.—Tlio Taillon administration has gone the way of its
predecessors. The defection of the
Nationalist-Conservatives, originally
ministerialists, haB accomplished thia.
Beaten on the election of sneaker the
government last night resolved to resign, and the intimation of tho fact
was conveyed to his honor the lieut. -
governor at Spencerwood last evening.
Mr. Mereier himself confirms the story
that he has been entrusted with the
task of forming a government. The
whole day yesterday was one of intense
excitement. Crowds of anxious-looking men hung about the parliament
house from early morning. Not much
is known aa to tho course to be adopted to-day. Before going out to tl.e
state dinnor at Spenccrwood lust night
the ministers met their supporters iu
caucus. It is understood that the
resignation was resolved upon and this
is not denied by the leaders. Some
say that the resignation of Mr. Taillon
and his colleagues was placed in the
lieut.-governor's hands last night, and
that his honor lost no time in sending
for Mr. Mereier and intrusting him
with tho task of forming a new government. It is therefore probable that
the lieut.-governor will not come down
to the house to-day, and if lie does
thero will be no speech from the
throne. His honor may Bend ft message down to tho house or Mr. Taillon
may be authorized to mako the necessary explanations. At all events Mr.
Mereier, by accepting office, vacates
hia Beat in the house.
Quebec, Jon. 28.—After routine in
tlie house Taillon moved the adjournment until Wednesday next. This
was carried and the house adjourned.
Tho governor was down at 3 o'clock
and stated ho would deliver the speech
ou Feb. 2nd.
Quebec, Jan. 28' -Premier Taillon
this evening resigned, and Hon. Mr.
Mereier, the Liberal leader, has been
called to form a cabinet. The following is the outline of the new cabinet.
Mereier, premier and attorney-general;
Duhamel, solicitor-genoral; Sheyn.
provincial treasurer; Turcotte, provincial secretary; McShano, crown lands;
Hon. Mr. Garneau will be given a
portfolio with a seat in tho legislative
council. Cameron, of Huntingdon,
will probably be taken in to represent
the protestants.
Ottawa, Jan. 28.—It is generally
admitted among Conservatives that Sir
John is to retire from politics after the
general eleotion and Sir Chas. Tupper
will assume the leadership. At the
cabinet council yesterday Sir Alex.
Campbell resigned on account of ill-
health. McLolan was sworn in as
postmaster-general and Sir Charles
Tupper as finance minister.
Montreal, Jan. 28.—Sir Donald
Smith has signified his willingness to
stand as an independent in Montreal
West, supporting the national and
general policy of the government.
Reoina, Jan. 28.—Job. H. Ross,
member of Northwest council for West
Assiniboin, has decided to oppose
Nicholas Flood Davin in the approaching elections.   Both are Conservatives.
The Revolt which I. eaased in a dyspeptic stomach by a meal digestible by
one whioh ia in average health, can be
permanently subdued and the tone of tho
organ restored by the systematic and persistant use of Northrop k Lymin'i Vegetable .Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure,
which imparts tono to the digestive vis
cera, and removes all impurities from the
Uood.
A Telephonic Burglar).
[From Fourth Page.]
"Well, well; henceforth I am silent. Let ui by all meant gel through
with thii buiinen. You have thoroughly learched my house, and yon
have piled up auroral armfuli of
kindling-wood in the hall, with kerosene on it, ready to touch off in a minute; and here we are, ai you say,
quietly talking Ihe matter over.
What comes next?''
" What come, next ia an alternative. The burning of your house,
Mr. Bradley, leems quite needless, as
well as diiadvantageoui to us both.
Here ii the caie. On tlu one hand,
if you refuse to givo up the money,
snd compel me to burn tho house,
you'll lose both the honse and the
money. On the other nand, if you
sensibly tell me where the greenbacks
are hidden, you will lose tht money, it
ii truo, but you will savo the houie.
In either ease, the money is lost; you
cannot save your employers' funds
whatever you do, and you haro limply
to put that question aiide. Well, put
it aiide. It now only remain! for
you to decide whether you will >nvo
your house or loso it, nml I offer you
that alternative. Does it nppesr a
very difficult one.to decide upon 'f
" Smith, you were made for a loui-
oian, not a burglar. Your statement
of the cue quite resembles n lawyer's
brief, and before we go any further I
should like to oak yoo, if I mav, whether your occupation hns nlwtiyi* been
what it ia at present, for yon do not
talk like an—an—"
" An outlaw ?"
" Yei, that's it—in plain language.
What ii it that haa brought you to the
pais of piling up kindling-wood in
other people'! honso. and threatening
them with conflagration after a thirty
minutes' statement of alternatives f"
" A sense of humor. Did the ab-
surdity of the wurld and it. convention! never striko you? I wa. horn
with sn unusual doso nf tlml."
"But there i. imprisonment for
lifo, and tuch littlo mattera."
"That strikes mc ns humorous toil.
Think of the ooncsit of linking a per-
■sen up tot lite '. Of course it m n justifiable «*rdship, but just think of the
vastmss of the conceit implied in ono
man's walking up to another and dipping him into prison for all hn born
day., Merely aa vnatneii of conceit it
ii very humorous. This ia a ridiculous bubble of a world."
" It ii a ridiculous bubble nf a
world; only I fear you underestimate
the dludvantagei of laughing on the
wrong llde."
" I leein to be nifu ut present. Aro
you not going to answer my nlterm-
livei"
" Yei—the alternative; I was forgetting it. The trouble with thut tl-
tamative, Smith, i. thai my mind sees
sunnier. Al you lay, tlio borilliig of
tho thouao seems entirely medio., and
dtaafamtageous  to  us both, but I
should put it on different grounds.
You assumo that the money is out
there, but I assume that it is in hero.
Here, then, in my case. On tho one
hand, if you insist on burning the
house, you do not get the money, and
you mako yourself guilty of the crime
of arson; on the other hand, if you
sensibly go away with empty pockets,
you leavo the house for mo and are a
guiltless men. In neither cuao can
you have the money, for it is iu here,
and you haro simply to put thnt question aside. Let us suppose you hare
put it aside. It now but remain! for
you to decide whether you will voluntarily make yourself-liable for arson.
What could be simpler?"
" Your argument !b atl sophistry—
hollow sophistry."
" Sn bad ai that?"
" Yes; and will tell you the little
fact that will prove it. It ia that I am
becoming tin impatient man, nnd liave,
in fact, just taken a bunch of mutches
out of my pooket."
" Then you really intend to do it ?'.'
"The matches, 1 lellyou, ore in iny
hand."
" Don't take the fatal step quite yet;
there is a question I want to ask you.
Ynu remember my inquiring for some
evidence that you really wero in iny
houso. Now, how do you know ihut
1 am in my office?"
" I do not care whether you are or
not."
"Thstseems to me a rather cnreleas
opinion. Hero we aro, Smith, talking
ovor this burglary, und while I know
exactly where you are, you have not
tho remotest idea wliere I am. Now,
suppose I am ill Boyd's houae, across
the street from you. Thero is a telephone thore."
" Yee, and suppose you are not."
"But lam. Here, iu fact, we are,
talking with ench other at a distance
of fifty yard., instead of many miles,
as you supposed."
" It iB a likely story!"
'"Oh, of course you areincredulooa.
But listen, und 1 will explain it to
you. Understand, in tho fint place,
that I do not carry large Bums of
money nhout with me without keeping
my eyes open. 1 have known for several weeks that I was being followed
by someone, and my employers have
therefore aet a watch, so that while
you were waiting for me to trip, we
were watting for you to do the same.
Yesterday evening the fatal hour
came. Yon were discovered looking
through my window, and then we
knew what to expect to-day. Accord
ingly we arranged duriug the night
that I should watch to-day in Boyd's
house, with two policemen. It was to
have been a busy day iu the city, and
I could ill spare myself from tho office,
bot I told the telephone clerk to send
all calls forme out hero to Boyd's,
und to this precaution I owe our conversation, which certainly, has been a
very extraordinary one. Unfortunately I cannot offer you nn alternative, Mr. Smith'; 1 must c>me over
with an officer right awuy, nnd carry
you off to the city. Bllt you believe
I am here now, do you not ?"
" I believe it ib all a weak fable."
" Will you look across tho street ?"
At this point Smith opened the
blind heaide the telephone at which lie
had boeu talking, and waB not a little
astonished to see Bradley leave the opposite honse and cross the street in
the oompany of a very competent locking policeman. In a few moments
they were at his side, and Bradley wns
saying, after a look at the burglar's
undismayed countenance, "You now
have an opportunity for even
more direct communication with the
owner of thii houso than you have enjoyed heretofore. Here I am, as you
see, and here is the policeman."
" Yea, we are all very much present.
It resembles a sceno in the pantomime."
" Ab, if it only were pantomime.
So niry and ingenioul a spirit as yours
— Bot I will not waste words. Will
you tell me where that pile of kindling
wood is? I think I should like to get
it off the carpet."
" That ? Ob, that was an invention
of mine."
" Aud so you did not intend to
burn tho house, after all 1"
" Perhaps not. At all events, I
shall not do it now."
"I am inclined to wish, for your
sake, that the whole affair were an invention. Ynu have made a bad bargain with deitiny, I fear, this time."
" Never mind about me; I am lost
in admiration of your cleverness.
Gome on; I'm ready. Well, well, it's
a ridiculous bubble of a world."—Har-

Mr Henry Harding, ofToronto, writes;
My little daughter, 7 years of age, has
been a terriblo sufferer this winter from
rheumatism, being for weeks confined to
her bed, with limbs drawn up, which
oould not be straightened, and suffering
great pain in every joint of limbs, arms
and shoulder!. Tho best of physicians
could not help hor, and we wero advised
tn try Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil, which
we done, and the benefit was at onco
apparent; aftor using two bottles the
pain left, lior limbs awinicd their natural shape, and in two weeks she was as
well as ever.   It has not returned.

J. 8. M'Lachlan's Insurance.
Tlie Snn Lire Company has Paid It. Policies, bnt Other Companies Want
Proof or Death.
From the Montreal Star.
There is every likelihood of litigation concerning the payment of the
policies of assurance held on the life
of the lato Mr. J. S. McLachlan. One
company, the Sun Life, has paid its
policies, but it is stated tlie others resist payment. It may bo that tlie
matter will be amicably settled, but
Buch is not the present appearance.
Thero was, as has beon stated, a total
nf $42,130.70 insurance on his life,
placed ns follows: In the Sun Life, on
his life $7000, with a bonus of 8130.-
70, and nu accident policy in the same
company for $10,000, making a total
of $17,130.70. Of the accident policy
for $10,000, $5000 of it was reinsured
with tho Citizens' Insurance Company.
Tho Sun Life has paid tho $17,130.70
to the heirs. The Citizens refuse to
pay the Sun Lifo, and tho latter company will enter suit. The Sun Lifo
on paying tho claim to tho McLachlan
hoirs, tuok from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with 0 por cent, interest
compounded yearly should Mr. J. S.
McLachlan ovor turn up alive. The
othor insurances wero $11,000 in LonJ
don and Lancashire Lifo Co., $2000 in
the JCtna Life, $2000 in the Dominion
Safety'Fund and a partnership policy
for $10,000 in tho Accident Company
of Nortii America. Thero waB a personal accident policy in the latter com-
Sniiy., and when J. S. McLachlan left
tontreal some time ngo, the unearned
portion of the premium wns returned
and the policy cancelled. The partnership policy for $10,000 is contested by
the North America Company on the
ground that Mr. J. S. McLachlan wob
not a registered partner at the time of
his death. The partnership policy
was on the lives of the Messrs. Mc-
Lachlans, Mr. Eadford and Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In case of death by
accident of any of them the policy was
payable to the survivora. When Mr.
Brophy retired from tlie business his
name was removed from the policy and
another put in his place hi the company,
who never was and is not now a partner.
While the Sun Lifo has paid its policies, the others have expressed tlie do-
sire to receive more satisfactory proofs
of death than have boen furnished
them. The Citizens' Insurance Company claims, first, that they wore not
notified of n desire for renewal, and
second, that the premium for tiie second year, which began in August last,
has not yet been paid. The policy of
tho /Etna calls for tile production of
tho body. Mr. W. McLachlan' has
written a lottor to Mr. Macaulay, of
the Sun Life, certifying to the honorable and liberal manner in which that
compnny has acted with regard to tho
claim. U. O. McLeod, is agent for
the Sun Life ir. this city.]  dja!4w2

A Telephonic Burglary.
Mr. Bradley wus standing not more
thau a foot from the telephone when
it began ringing. Instantly applying
the instrument to his car, and calling.
"Hello!" he heard'somo one voico
faintly back:
".Hello! Is that Mr. Bradley ?"
"Yes," he replied.  "Who are you?"
"Is it Mr. Henry A Bradley, of Col-
ton HiU!"
"Yes, sir, that is my namo and residence.   Who are you!"
"You must not bo surprised, Mr.
Bradley, but I am a burglar in your
house on Colton Hill."
"What on the living earth do you
mean!"
"Just what I say—a burglar in your
house on Colton Hill, and talking
with you here at the telephone. You
are necessarily excited by this information, but try to compose yoursolf,"
the squeaking voice went on.
"Great Heavens! Compose myself!
You infamous scoundrel, what are you
doing in my house!"
"Precisely what I have said, Mr.
Bradley. I am a professional burglar
—I really hope you will take this
quietly. It will be to your advantage,
you know; I will show you that."
"I shall take it quietly, you poor
sinner, by starting a squad of police up
the hill after you in less than ten minutes. Say your prayers for strong legs
for you will need them more thau ever
you did before."
"You cannot do it, sir. Listen to
me, and 1 will show you that I know
all about tlie situation. In the first
place, your house is the only one on
the hnl, except Mr. Boyd's, immediately across the street, and he is away
in the country for - the summer. In
aecond place, the nearest inhabited
house is half a mile distant, at the foot
of the hill, and the nearest telephone,
except the one in your neighbor
Boyd's, is at Winchester, five miles
oft Now I know you might ring up
the Winchester telephone, but it is a
long way off, aud besides, there iB no
squad of policemen there. I should
not wonder if the town's single guardian were asleep somewhere in a corner
Don't you see that I know all about
the place, and that you had better bo
persuaded to take it quietly!"
"What in the deuce do you want,
anyhow!" queried Mr. Bradley, ignoring the question with which the
burglar had ended.
"For one matter, to assure you that
I am perfectly well posted in all your
affain, which will take but a few
wnrds. You are at present occupied
as treasurer of the Nouontuuk Woollen
Mills-"
"That's correct enough."
"—And the 30th of overy month
you go out to the mills with ten thousand dollars in greenbacks done up in
a bundle, like groceries, for pay-day."
"Yes; we pay our employees nionth-
ly."      '"'f      ,
' "You need not be nt the trouble of
answering; 1 will go right through
with the facta of the case. Well, the
30th came yesterday; but you missed
the Lowell express, which you usually
take, and had to postpone your trip
until to-day. So you took the local
train instead, and you came out to
Colton Hill, bringing the money homo
with you. Then in the evening, when
sitting at supper, you told vour wife
that yob disliked carrying the green
backs so much about, and that you
would leave them in tlio house until
this afternoon, when you would call
for them on the way up to the mills.
Have I been correct!"
"Possibly; but I must tell you that
money is not there. It will be a great
disappointment to you, but I brought
it into the offlce this morning,"
"Well, well, I will try to bear it.
But listen to the rent of my tale. After
.. supper. you appeared to hide those
greenbacks in some place upstairs, and
this morning, for some reason, when
you started for Boston with your wife,
you did not have the bundle which you
brought home with you yesterday.
How am I to understand that ?"
"By the use of your reasoning faculty. There are many ways of carrying
money.."
"My reasoning faculty is juat what
troubles me. The more I reason the
more I am convinced that the money
is in this house. Of course you will
never admit it without aome inducement, and I therefore have a plan to
propose for tiie adjustment of this
whole inatter—on a basis of mutual
benefit, I mean. I will now state it.
My name is Smith, by-the-way."
"Very well, Mr. Smith. 1 cannot
say that I am glad to make your acquaintance. I must say that your
present relation seems to me very unconventional."
"Unconventional, Mr. Bradley, yos,
but uot without its conveniences. Just
see, Though a burglar iu this house,
I am able, by means of the latest ro
linement of civilized invention, to converse witli the vory owner himself,
who knows all its nooks and corners.
And you also, the owner, aro, presont
at an occurrence of great importance
to yourself, instead of remaining ignorant until all is over, as usually Happens."
"Oh, well, if you talk in that way.
Pray how and when did you enter my
house, Mr. Smith, and how am I to
know that you are, in fact, talking
with me from there, and not from some
other point on the line V
"I entered at the rear kitchen window as soon as I saw you and Mrs.
Bradley start down the hill. You can
easily make sure of my presence here
by asking me some question about the
room."
"Very well. There isasmallpio
ture over the telephone. Oan you describe itf
"I can. It is an etching—three
mice in a trap.   It's by Bajon."
"You are,undoubtedly on the premises,   Yes, there's no question but
that you are. in my west sitting room
on Colton Hill.   And being sure of the
impossibility of interruption, since the
nearest telegraph station is five miles
distant, you have a feeling that you
can asks matters comfortably.   Do I
■aoowdln grasping your view of the
situation?"
"Admirably; perfeotly."
"You say that you are in communication, by means o! the latest refinement of civilisation, as you express it,
with tht owner of this house, and that
I, th« wrier, am^iwigood as prosont nt
an affair of great importance to myself
—though I don't seo yot whore tho
benefit to mo comes in. But you havo
aome plan to propose about that."
"Just so; it delights mo to hear
you tako tho matter bo sensibly. The
truth is, the uiTnngemont that I have
in view will be quite as much for your
advantage as for mine; the money that
is her—"   ,
"No, no; you aro mistaken."
"Oh, of course you must protest,
Mr. Bradley, but I know that it is
here, and—"
"Allow me—we cannot both talk at
onco, and I pay the rent for this telephone It is true, indeed, that I did
not bring in a bundle this morning,
but I carried in the greenbacks quite
the samo, in one of iny boot-legs, and
they aro in the safe now; so that if
the plan you liave to reveal relates to
them, I fool quito suro that it will be
disappointed."
"We shall see--we shall see. Did I
understand you to say that you carriod
the greenbacks to tho city in ono of
your bootlegs ?"
"Yes, sir, in one of my bootlegs—
the left one."
"I don't want to be inquisitive, but
what sized boots do you wear ?"
"TeiiB."
"Tens. I suppose you have threo
or four puirs of tens ?"
"I suppose I have."
Now, Mr. Bradley, hefore entering
on this conversation with you, I spent
some timo iu makingi*. thorough search
of yuur huusa, and as I was ou the
lookout for hiding places, I ran my
hands into several pairs of shoes, but
curiously enough I did not find a
Bingle pair of boots."
" Ah, T see the inference. But I
cannot find them myself half the time.
You are a married man and can understand that."
" What I understand is that you
avoid the point at issue. The time is
passing, and here wo are, no nearer a
settlement. Had you not better
acknowledge the boots, to save time?"
" Never, air. I tell you I brought
them in my hoot-legs."
" Well, well, we must compromise
this, and get on faster; it is half-past
ten already. Suppose we say that by
the necessities of the case I am convinced the money is here in the house
and that you by the necessities of the
case arc compelled to believe that it
is in the city. But, to Bavo valuable
time, you agree to waive the point in
dispute on my assurance that if you
will listen further you may see reason
to modify your belief, and I agree nut
to aak you any more questions about
your boots or to draw inferences from
tho answers you hare already given
about them.   Do you accept that?"
" I accept it, though I must  say—"
" For the love of brevity, make no
more excuses; time is flitting too fast.
Can you not allow me to say what I
havo to say, and you remain quiet,
and then you say what you have to
say, and I remain quiet?1'
" Very easily. It waB you that interrupted me, you remember. But let
that pasa. I am listening with a hundred eara."
" Oh, very well, then. Here we
are— But I had better begin at the
(.nt. Your house, nn I have intimated, has been putty thoroughly
searched. I entered it, Mv. Bradley,
soon after you loft it, and have been
at work uver since; and L was not
afraid of MrB. Bradley's returning,
because the habits of your family
have been a subject of quite close
study to me for some months, and I
knew that wheu Mra. Bradley weut in
town Bhe always spent tha day there.
I knew also that the children were
away in the country, nud that your
wife waB herself keeping liotisu during their absence. Ymi perceive that
I am posted."
"Very much so."
"Yes. It is a good part of a year
since I began watching your monthly
trips to the factory. Some slip waB
sure to come, for that is human nature. At last human naturo repaid
my trust, and I caught you napping,"
"How guilty you make um feel! I
suppose that you deem yourself an instrument appointed by tho angelic
powers to find out wicked cashiers."
" Not so bad as that. I will call
myself simply a burglar, and loavo tho
angelic powers to the modern husinuua
man. Well, ud I was sayitiif, I searched
•your house pretty thoroughly. I could
find no money, nnd was nhout to renounce my task, whon, my eye resting on this tch'iihoii*!, i lio conception
of consulting you alwut the matter
flashed through my mind. ' It seemed
a venturusomij experiment, hut I runu
up the central otlice, got connected
with you, ami hero we m<i talking the
matter over ijuiutlv. I shall snon be
through now. Will ynu continue listening?"
"I am all attention,"
" Good. I knew ymi ware u man of
quick with), and that probaMy yuu
would refill".* tu admit that the money
is here, so I made a fuw preparatory
arrangements before culling you at the
telephone In fact, I foresaw I
slmuM have tu compel you in some
way to reveal thu hiding-place of that
money, nnd this, Mr. Bradley, is the
disagreeable part of my task, I never
burned a house down before, hut iny
mind jb mado up to burn yours down
now unless yuu reveal to me right'
awny where that money is hidden.
Yes, sir. I have just brought up several armfulB of kindling-wood from the
cellar, and have piled it in tho hallway and wet it with a can of kerosene, bo that it oan all be touched off
in a minute. Now, without multiplying words- "
" Without multiplying words,
Smith, I defy yon. Light the house
if you want to. You havo got hold of
the wrung man this time—yes, indeed."
"Fiddlesticks! How you jump nt
conclusions! Can't you let me finish
before ynu explode? Perhaps I'm not •
as dreadful as you think."
" Finish!—yes, if you over will.
Are you aware that you have been
half an hour coming to the point?"
11A half hour of interruptions."
