Our Washington Letter.
(Prom Uur Regular Correspondent)
Washington,   Nov. 2.—Ah tbo
time for tbo assembling of Congress
JAM**** iitlri->-rrn.liliigtMlj||argfte?BeJl
from her summer siesta aud is
in the midst of an era of preparation
for the advent of assembled wisdom
atthe capitol. The dawn of the
approaching "season" is unusually
radiant. It already reflects its
glow over the whole city, and is
prophetic of the reign of politics
and gayety such as will cast a
shadow over remembrances of proceeding congressional sessions.
Many of tie people . who possess
Wealth, culture, and leisure, and
make Washington their winter resort
have already returned, They will
soon be followed by a ..general rush
from all parts of the country. Then
the ball begins. Congress and society will vie for supremacy. The for-
met|willinterest, the Utterwill dazzle.
The power of society in Washington
has to be seen to be appreciated. It
exerts a- strong control even over
official life, and its power cannot
be broken or dissembled. It reigns
over congress, in that it lures
both representative and senator
away from their duties at the capitol, Not infrequently does the
house of representatives await a
quorum until its truant members
can.be arrested in the enjoyment of
a "high ten" or a ball at Mrs., Secretory so-and-so's, and returned captive by the serjeant-at-arms. The
monarebs of this power
THE SOCIETY  LEADERS
will strain every nerve this
season to increase its magnetism,
and they promise a succession of entertainments on a scale that hal not
heretofore been attempted. Gossip
is the ambassador and minister
plenipotentiary of the social world.
Thia year ihe tells of the mysterious
costumes and surprises that will astound the oldest inhabitants, and
add greatly tb the splendor of tho
display. Between vanity fair and
tlie national legislature, there will
be nothing dormant in Washington
the coming Fall and Winter, from
the first whirl after Monday, December 5th, to the intermission
whioh ensues when the mantle of
Lent is thrown over society. All
Washington, and by tbat I mean
the combination of social and official
life at the capital, has been to the
races the past week. The race season is indeed a gala time here.
Fashion, with its modern tastes; is
a great patron of the turf, and fashion nowhere rules with greater
sway than in her stronghold at the
capital of the nation. Here a comparatively great proportion of the
population can afford to enjoy
themselves without regard to coat.
Ergo, they all go to tho races and
lose their money. Heads of departments, chiefs of bureau, down to
tlie ()900 clerk, may all be seen
hovering about the book-makers, or
posing on the quarter-stretch for the
admiration of the ladies on tlie
grand stand, whilo the
DIPLOMATIC DUDES
promenade with usually wont in
front of tho crowd. As they
strutted up and down the past
week, they scorned to feel that
every eye was npon them; nor wero
they mistaken. The cut of their
trousers, the shape of their collars,
and their kaleidoscopic neckties
usually afford much amusement.
The diplomat must be classed in the
eccentrio family of the genus homo,
for both in his face and dress he
seems to present in conbination the
fashions of Paris, London, Berlin
nnd St. Petersburg. Apropos of
the races, the fact is lately developed that there are as many fine
itoiiis tthd handsome equipages in
Washington as are to be found anywhere. Time was when a handsome
turnout or linn span of horses was a
rarity upon the streets of tho capital, and one involuntarily turned to
look after the unusual sight.
Now, however, such u state of things
no longer exists. The miles of asphalt nnd smooth pavements are
fairly alive during the winter, the
elegant teams driven for tlio best
paii by their respective owners.
General Bcall, on his tine farm just
outside tho city limits, keeps so
many lino horses that, where tie so
minded, it would be possible to appear with a now team every day
for a considerable length of time.
TUB PlIESlDgNT
lias a handsome team of blacks, and
Sucretary Bayard's favorite steed is
a large powerful bay, mounted npon
whioh it is no infrequent sight to j
see him riding quietly along some
unfrequented country road, half the
time with his own thoughts for sole
companions. The Preidsent is engaged in the preparation of his
annual message to congress. It
goes without saying, that his chief
topic will be the tariff problem and
the question of a reduction of the
surplus. It is also probable that
there will again lie something said
upon oivil servico reform. While
the present civil service reform laws
have diminished the howl nf the
office-seekers ayd ujade life endurable at the departments, they are
.Btill rogordod on very imperfect, and
iiilbi'd many loop-holes through
whioh the wily office-seeker manages to crawl.

PROHIBITION DEFEATED IN OKEOOS.
Portland, Or., Nov. 8.—Prohibition is defeated by about 8,600 in the
state. Only two counties are known
to have voted in ita favor, The salaries amendment is defeated. The
amendment changing times of election
is probably carried.
THE ABYSSINIAN COMMISSION.
London, Nov. 8.—The British commissioners en route to Abyssinia were,
according to despatches received this
afternoon, compelled to return to
Monkuello, owing to the fact that thoy
wero deserted by their guides, and
compelled to find their way as best
they could. After travelling 25 miles,
without water and without finding
signs thereof, they retraced their steps
and finally mode their way back by
the route affording facilities for relieving tho burning thirst that was upon
them. Yesterday the commissioners,
under the guidance of reliable pilots,
again started for King John's capital,
and are expecting to roach there without further mishap.
CONDITION OP THE CROWN PRINCE.
Bebun, Nov. 8.—Reports from San
Renio state that Dr. Mackenzie has
declared that an operation on the
Crown Prince's throat is almost impossible, owing to the position of the
newly discovered growth.. A consultation of specialists »ill bt held tomorrow to decide what course to pursue. The Telegraph says the consultation of physicians in the case of the
Crown Prince Frederick William held
to-day waa the result of the growing
apprehension among the physicians
that the growth in the patient's throat
was of a malignant character. In this
view Dr. Mackenzie will remove a
portion of the growth to-morrow,
which will be examined by Professor
Virchow, Another despatch from San
Bemo says, the present symptoms of
the Prince's trouble became apparent
on November 1st. Tho performance
of the operation will be delayed until
the opinion of other experts can be obtained by Dr. Mackenzie. Meanwhile
the patient will take medicine designed
to compose his nerves and allay the
pain. Dr. Mackenzie says the Prince
is in no immediate danger.
CIll'RDII liGUUTABUSHVEXT.
Lofdon, Nov. 8. — The English
clergy as a rule begin to feel some
alarm over the question of church disestablishment, and are preaching
niriiinst it very widely. The selietno of
Gladstone to disestablish the Welsh
church is regarded as a remote attack
upon upon their own venerable institution, an assault upon the outposts of
the main citadel, of which they are
guardians and defenders. Some of the
clergy iu speaking of the matter feel
that the first attempt would be to take
away the endowment of the church in
Wales. A prominent churchman referred to the fact that the agreement
would be based upon tho church being
in a minority thero. -'But," said he,
"thnt nriiiinieiit would hardly stand
now, hs lately the Welsh ohurch has
been gaining ground vory largely, and
is still rapidly regaining ground, lt
now probably contains forty tier cent,
of tho population, and if it increases
at this rate, the church establishment
can hardly be called a failure. The
trouble is," continued lie, "thnt comparatively few men hold largo livings
in the ohurch, while the, poor vicars
aud nutnorous curates uro obliged to
exist on next to nothing. This is
what hurts tho reputation of tho endowment system. 1 think that there
call bo a very radical change made in
this particular, and perhaps in some
other directions. The church is pulsing through a period of apathy, and
before long she will be culled upon to
give an account to tho tuition why she
should koep the place whioh for centuries has been assigned to her. That
the attack will be determined and prolonged, anil that it will, to a large extent, move on other lines than tho
consideration for the rights of prop-
porty, or the interest of the nation, is
probable enough. Thero are two imperative things to bo done. One immediately, while the othor must bo
effected gradually. The first is a fairer apportionment of the church's endowment from the state, that nieu
may sec a more just spirit toward each
other actuating tile men who are working together for tho samo cause. Tho
second is that the clergy must sec that
their Master's work is better performed. This is the rook upon whioh
all church defence must stand. Let
these two actions be taken, and you
will find disestablishment far olf from
us, and all agitation of it will cease." j

Mr. Gladstone's latest declaration
respecting the disestablishment of
the Episcopal church in England
litis produced considerable commotion. Scarcely u year passes now
without this question coming to the
front in some form or other, ond
thero is a widespread belief that it
is only a question of ti,i,e when the,
national church of England and
Scotland will bo placed on the same
footing as other churches. It is
estimated that the church of Eng-
hnd now receives about $20,000,000
annually from tithes, but it hns
been demonstrated by actual experience in this conntry and tho United
States that it loses none of its vitality when divested of its state aid
and character.
There seems to be no doubt now
that the report of Stanley's death
was without foundation. The courageous explorer is still pushing on
with his expedition, and even now
may have accomplished the object
for whicli he set out. If he should
return in safely, which we all hope,
Mr. Stanley will undoubtedly bring
luck with him much additional in
formation respecting the interior
regions of the dark continent. He
will also have familiarized the savages with European expeditions and
taught them to believe in the peaceful intentions as well ns the wonderful power and resources of civilized nations. Stanley's visit will
protxtbly be of great advantage to
the missionaries who havo taken
their lives in their hands nnd penetrated these strongholds of heathenism,     i	
Severalof our provincialexchanges
have lately been calling attention
to the practice so largely prevailing
of supplying liquor to Indians. The
consequences of this unlawful prac
tice are iu inany cases most serious
and often fatal. It is bad enough
to give whiskey to whito men, for
it has proved to be the destruction
of thousands of them, but it is worse
to put this murderous drink within
the reach of the natives, who seem
powerless to resist the fiendish impulses which it stirs up within
them. The recent murders at Kamloops were undoubtedly the result of
this practice, and besides the lives
lost, before justice has become satisfied the cost to the treasury will be
' very great. People plead for tho
license system because of the rev-
fij'enue it brings, but we are not sure
* ' that the wholo licenso revenue will
more than pay the cost of punishing crimes which are the direct result of the use of intoxicating
drinks. We are glad to see a disposition on the port of magistrates
to impose severe penalties on persons supplying liquor to Indians.
If the utmost limit of the law were
invoked, the evil would soon be
stamped out
Our friend of the Vancouver
Herald manifests great satisfaction
because, as he thinks, the Red River
Railway scheme has failed. As a
matter of fact it may not have
failed, and in that event our cotem-
porary's satisfaction is somewhat
premature. The latest reports from
Winnipeg are to the effect that Mr.
Holt, the contractor, has signified
hia willingness to consent ta such a
modification of the contract as will
meet the objections brought against
it by the citizens' committee, und
that he has gone east to consult his
colleagues on this point. But our
cotemporary indulges in some reflections which we think aro not in
the direction of sound statesmanship.
He thinks the failure of the scheme
"will be a lesson to other provinces
not to engage in undertakings not
sanctioned by the Dominion parliament;" and adds that "if the provinces are to have the power of set.
ting aside Dominion authority, confederation is impossible." But the
government of Manitoba has committed no act against the constitution as interpreted by Sir John Macdonald himself, who is higher authority than our salt water cotemporary. Both Sir John and other
members of the cabinet have declared that Manitoba possesses the
legal right to construct railways
within the province; and they have
■aid, in effect, that it has a right to
build railways to the American
boundary. The granting of a charter to the R. R. It, therefore, was
not a defiance of federal authority.
The only remaining question is the
right ot the federal government to
disallow the charter. Technically
it possesses this right; but Sir John
has laid down the principle, as we
' showed yesterday, that the federal
government "had no right to interfere so long as tho different provincial legislatures acted within the
bounds of the authority which the
constitution gave them." This disposes completely of the Herald's
contention. With respect to the
danger to confederation arising out of
the attitude of Manitoba, wa quote
Sir John again, who declared that
to assume that the federal government had the right to revise
provincial riots passed in accordance
wilh tho powers vested in the lagis,
Inturcs, and to disallow such of them
as it Chose, would be to "alter the
spirit of the constitution,"   Further
comment would bo superfluous. If
tho Herald wishes to let its readers
kuow Sir John Macdonald's views
respecting the exercise of tlio veto
power, let it publish the speech delivered by him on the motion to disallow the New Brunswick school
act in 1873, extracts from which
appeared in our issue of yesterday.

SECOND-HAND CORKS.
Tlie danger Which Mar Attend Their Use.
Tho Boston Journal of Health alludes
to a subvert whieh was discussed in tho
lflBt Issue of the American Analyst in
the (ullinn.r.: terras, under the heading
ol "A I'rmiiiioii Abuse:"
Wo do not recall ever having seen
ntiontlo.ii drawn to tlie fact that very
ninny of tin so-called "bottlers" are
utr.114 S'ltron I linnd corks, which are
emliere I up from saloons, ash-barrels
at the I'ditiiip'-, tind elsewhere. Theso
corks a. e fo'n I by scavengers to dealers,
who in turn rl sposrr of them to bottlers.

coura.r wishu.i thorn, and probably in
nirid; lut those who are familiar with
the Iris ties, know thoy are not thorough y cleaned, nor Is it possible to
clean "1 hem by the means used. It can
rcnilily be seen how touch mischief to
healt.r may be done in this way. During tin summer season, especial y,
there is 11 givntsalo of carbonated drink*B,
such ns niuger ale, cidur, lemon soria,
"tonics," etc., and . very inuny bottlers
ol these beverages use, as stated, the
second-hand corks. That poisons and
germs of iliscuse maybe transmitted by
. them all must ugree who aro familiar
-With the ease with whieh such virulent
agents iim transported. Take, for in-
sUiirre, corks whieh have heen used in
bottles containing i-roton oil or liniments strong with aconite. Sulticient

hud been washed in toe wayGotller.r

of a bottle stoppered with a cork which
had oniv been thrown into the filth,

In which ti c.iil I had been ill and died
with diphtheria, or other infections dis-
ortsu. Those wtio buy bottle-goods from
many dealers rire'snlijicteil to just such
an indignity. It is hard to realize that
.there are brutes so fiendish, they will
run the rink of polso ring their fellow
men for tlio sake of saving a fow pennies. Is there. no limit to human
greed?
Tke fNMuijr «nd the Money Markot.
Those who nre engaged in large business operations, and especially speculators In stocks, and who hence noed to
be borrowers to huge amounts, are, of
course, constantly watching the state of
the money market. The question
whether the market is "tight" or "easy"
is to them one of cardinal importance.
Unfortunately, under our present fiscal
system, tho money market in this
country is not self-regulating. What it
is to be at any given time depends
largely upon the policy pursued by the
Treasury Department of the Government. When the Government by
customs dues and other taxes takes
from the people a much larger sum
than it disburses, and holds the excess
in tho Treasury in tho idle state, the
necessary result is a decrease of-money
in circulation for business-purposes',
and this, of course, tends to make the
market "tight." Such is precisely the
pres"iit situation. What will Congress
do, when it meets, to reduce the surplus in tho Treasury 1 What will the
Keretary ol the Treasury do, beforo
tire meeting of Congress, to get a part
or' this surplus back into the hands of
the people7 These are thu questions
t nit have been and aro still asked in
business circles.
We have long been of the opinion
that the intimate relation between the
Treasury Department of the United
Mates tnd the money market of tho
country it a very abnormal one, tnd
that it would be far better for the people if the money market operated under
the general law ol .supply and demand,
without any reference to the polioy of
the Treasury. The ordinary laws of
trade would then govern the supply of
money; just ta flieydo the supply of
anything else; and the Treasury would
simply collect and disburse the public
money, which is quite enough for it to.
do. Under our present flsctl system
we ire confronted with this fact: That
whon business is most active, and tho
people most want money for its transaction, the Treasury abstracts the largest amount of moneyirom popular use.
The tendency ol snob a system is to
embarrass trade, MpeMally if the money
thus withdrawn Is not'speedily returned to the channels ot trade.   .    ..

The Use of Failures.
' Tho first thing, then, to do with a
failure is to find out the reason of it.
In this-ihatter men mnv sometimes
learn from 'boys. Readers of Turn

Tom gained'his skill iii wrestling. It
wat in the school of hard experience;
Tom was at first rr poor wrestler, and
had to work his way up 'from tlie very
bottom, but nftcr ovory fall he set himself to find out tlie particular thrust or
trip that had sent him ou his back, and
when ho was apparently foiled he did
not give up, .Hit thought abont tbat

lay awake iu boil, in his dreams.' Such
study of one's failures can never Ire
fruitless, but, unfortunately, such study
is not so common as it ought to lie. N ot
many days ago a .lady, whoso work oi
years hod been overthrown by lack of
ordinary caution, said to a-visitor: '1

and failed, and now I have dei hied just
to take lifo as it comes and cujoy it us

As a remedy for Whooping Cough,

My children have been peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to

Our attention has been called to

amongst the Indian children on Humboldt street, lt is stated that a strange

stated, swells to enormous proportions,
whilst tho paluto becomes inflamed

type of diphtheria. It may be ono of
another form, and equally dangerous,
for already several fatal coses hnvo
occurred.—Pic. Times.

A (loot! Scheme.
Mr, Joseph Armstrong hu devised
an advertising scheme for tho oity and
and district of Westminster which is
likely to prove the most beneficial yet
attempted in that line. Tho idea is to
get out a folder, something similar to
the Railway Co.'s folders, with a
birdseye view of the ci.y nnd district
on one side and facts and figures, in
short and pithy style, on Iho other
side. Onr manufactures and industries will be given a prominent place,
also all landt settled on and all remaining to be taken up. Every possible piece of information will bo
boiled down to the solid extract and
given in plain words and figures, Tho
scheme is to got 60,000 of these folders
printed and then lettered broadcast,
over llio Dominion nnd in fact anywhere they may be liable to do good.
The plan it to be put before the council for approval on Monday night and
it ia to be hoped it will bo well received.
The expenae of getting up the folder
is to be borne conjointly hy ovory
municipality in the district.

be wat aggravated1, he had no money
or clothes and his family were desti

said the prisoner could be found guilty
on the 4 counts of the chnrgo, but all

to be on unfriendly tonus with Harris
resulting out of a dispute over tho
right to n c-.-rtain piece of laud, Crawford was at tho Landing on (he niglit
of the murder nnd he was iiwitrit that
Harris had received a lettur with
money in it. The blows on the body
were made with an axe and tho axe
was handled by a loft handed man,
Crawford is left handed. After the
murder Crawford attempted tu It'Bte
