roi'KOSSS DATS IN PRISON.
Dublin, April 14.—Mr. Dunlaaiy,
editor of tbe Clare Independent et Ennis, who was arreated and afterwards
discharged last Sunday night for having, participated in • meeting at Ennis,
declined to come up for judgment on
the charge of assaulting the police
when called upon to do so to-day. He
was forthwith sentenced to 14 dayB'
imprisonment. Messrs. Healy, O'Brien
and Redmond, member, of parliament,

Ross to-night.
O'BRIEN ARRESTED.
Dobiin, April 14.— Mr. William

and cheered him repeatedly as he arrived in custody of the constables who
arrested him at Kingstown, alternating the cheers with groans for Mr.

O'Brien who was escorted by 7 policemen until ho wu put on board the
train and taken tc Ballintaloe, where
he will remain in jail until Monday.
Detectives are searching to-night for
Mr. Dillon.
THE IMPERIAL  BDDOET.
London, April 14.— The liberals
will gravely criticise the relative dealing in the budget with real and personal property. Mr. Goachen guards
himself on the question of the accession duty by aaying hia proposals are
not final. Mr. Gladatone ia strongly
of the opinion that Mr. Goschen'a
dealing with this part of England's fiscal system is very imperfect. Mr. Gladstone's views are as follows: The successive duty hss for years produced
only about £820,000 annually, while
the probate duty has approached 87,-
000,000. Mr. Goschen proposes to
add the paltry sum of £500,000 to the
succession duty. He will quntion the
statement that tho gross annual value
of the real property in the kingdom is
more than £190,000,000. Under the
existing system a successor to a bequest, if real property, pays no more
than if he had a iife interest in it, although he might sell the proporty before the duty became payable. The
inequality may be illustrated hy a comparison. Suppose that two men receive equal bequests, the capital value
in each cose being £100,000, but the
first one getting his in cash and the
other in land. The one who receives
the money will pay £20,000 of duty,
whilo the one who gets the lnnd will
pay only £1054. This is a point to
which the attnek of the liberal leaders
will bo directed. The ingenuity displayed in tho proposal of linking the
Sues Canal shares with the payment
for the fortifications of England's coaling stations meets with high praise.
This proposal is regarded as the gem
of the Budget. The change in the
carriage tax is not a large matter, yet
it has hit n class which is not going to
suffer with patience. Thore is not a
perfect agreement oven in tory circles
as to i his or ns tu Mr. Goactreii'a proposals with lvg'ird to horses nml horse
dealers and wines, other tlinn, chcr.p
wines. A certain popularity will attain! the remission of jiawkavs' licenses,
but tho tradi'smen nre nun' up in arms
sguinst ir. The reduction nf 'the In-
oome tnx was to all an acceptable con-
oluaiun. The imposition of severnl
new taxes ia evidently regnnled with

The house committee appointed
to consider the procedure which
governs sheriffs' offices in this province has mode a report. It recommends that the sheriffs' districts (or
bailiwicks) be readjusted so as to become coterminous with the county
court districts as established by the
act of 1883, u»d that they be called
counties. It is also recommended
that sheriffs receive salaries without
fees, the present system of fees and
salaries being considered injudioious.
J?or tho nino months onding on
tho 31st ult. tho revenue of the Dominion was $25,709,313, which is
about $620,000 more than for the
corresponding period of the previous
fiscal year. It is gratifying to find
that during theso nine months the
expenditure was only $23,670,286,
showing a surplus of $2,039,026.
It is stated that the public debt of
Canada was reduced by $1,193,693
last month. It is to be hoped this
rato of reduction may be kept up.
Our present debt is very heavy.
Most of it has been incurred by
much-needed publio works; but it is
to be hoped that now, since our
most expensive and most urgently-
needed national works have been
completed, we may be entering a
period of greater economy. The
public debt ought to be reduced
$10,000,000 a year for some time
to come; and with economic administration it may be done.
ability and the right to deal with
the charter in the same way that it
deals with other business. Technic
ally it has; but the occasion}**™** not
an ordinary one. We don't-, have a
new,charter e\jery year, and^the occasion waspoV exceptional, that it
called for exceptional procedure.
If it should turn out thnt the now
charter is not in accordance with
the views of a majority of the ratepayers, the council will not be nlrle
to defend itself against tho charge of
having noted injudiciously under
circumstances which furnish it with
no valid excuse.
We learn from an eastern exchange that British soldiers are
shortly to be armed with an improvod magazine rifle, which, according to the accounts given of it,
will bo a most effective and deadly
weapon. It is rilled on tho Met-
ford system, and combines numerous
modern Knglish nnd American
patents. The bullet is light and
long, and, it is claimed, will kill at
a distance of 4,100 yards. It has
been virtually decided that the rifle
will be adopted by the British government as the weapon for both regulars and volunteers, and machinery
has already been set up at the government small arms factory for its
manufacture. The only objection
made to the new arm is on account
of its weight, which is nine pounds
and a half without bayonet. On
the other hand, the weight of the
ammunition is decreased, and n soldier can go into action with doable
the usual quantity.
A few days ago our Vancouver
morning cotemporary intimated that
Thk Columbian must have been
sleeping because it profeasc-d to be
unaware of any considerable discussion on commercial union previous
to the last general election. In a
letter reoently published, Prof. Gold-
win Smith gives an account of his
statement before a committee of
congress. He says: " My first object waa to obviate the inipre.-. inn
that the rejection of Sir Richard
Oartwright's resolution by the Canadian parliament would be the
rejection of commercial union by
Canada. I explained that the question beforo the country when the
present parliament was elected was
not commercial union, of which
there had at that time been no mention, nor indeed commercial policy
at all. Mr. Blake declined that issue." Now, this is precisoly the position taken by The Columbian.
If this journal has been sleeping,
therefore, Goldwin Smith must hare
been sleeping also—but we rather
think our salt water cotemporary
has been dreaming.
It is stated that the new charter
tor this city has been referred to a
Select committeo of the houso for
examination, and if the committee
reports favorably on the measure it
will,'probably be adopted by the
house without receiving more than
a formal consideration. From tho
first we hare been of opinion that
this measure has been carried
through without sufficient consideration. It is a measure very largely
affecting the future interests of the
city, and we think it is to lie regretted that the people have not
been permitted to make themselves
familiar with its provisions before it
became law. The charter was for
some time before the city council,
and we presume it received there a
careful perusal and consideration;
but we think it is a great pity the
publio had never an opportunity of
seeing it For ourselves, we have
not even seen a copy of the new
charter, and we presume very few
of our readers beyond those who
happen to be members of the city
council have been more widely
privileged. It would have been
very easy for the council to obtain
a few extra copies of the charter,
and to place them where the publio
might have had access to them, and
in this way all who chose might
have been able to become fairly sc-
quainted with the document. We
hop* It it aU right, but this is the
best we can say of it; for of its provisions we are as profoundly ignorant as the, rest of the ratepayers,
Some members of the oouncil seem

J.Mnro-.lt.rn.le. CONCERNING CLOTHES.
Men nml Women lYlro Give All Their
Thoughts to Dress.
If it were Uot (or clothes a {-rent part 61
the world would have nothing to do, and
noihing to think about. Clothes are to
some what boohs and pictures nnrl bric-
o-bric, music, poetry and convei'snlion
nro to othetB. They tako the place of
■ ni t:ii»liysU's, nsti'Tiroiny and psyirholog-
ii'irl v. sirari-h. 1 oraibly it mny nrr|niro
as much .thought to plan a reception
' gown itB to I'iili'ulrrtii nn eclipse, especially when tlie ).ur.sa i;i rrienilor : to iiiinaine
a now slmpy for n i 'irriurt, n now drapery,
a new tri'tiiinin**, irs ,n invent a philosophical Kolution of tlio universe or to compost! a symphony ; but tho mind is moro
cu1iir*eu mid ouVicln'd by tho one than
by the other. Wo do not exactly want
to live for clothes, to satisfy our souls
wilh such material things, although
iniriiy nre appivrrntly fonteuL to give nil
tlroir leisure'and thoughts to theui, nnd
lire nosooiior oil' will thn oirl tintlnM
tlinn they lire on wilh tho new. They
nlwnys bava nilro.-sniaker in lite hi'rltso
anil shopping on hand. Their literature
is tush on ropM'tn. Tlioy llrivo no irrtr-r
ests lo spr'rik of apart fro'tri this frivolous
pursuit, or nono so great, so alnoriing.
Kappine.-s for Hiich people consists in a
wardrobe where no omission can be detected.
llut let it not bo supposed thnt this
adoration of clothes is a peculiarly feminine trait, although many behave so.
Are not fop and coxcomb both in the
masculine gender, and is thero nny fern-
inino synonym for them'.' Of lonraj it
may 1)b urged tlmt men have noblo;- occupations which rousuimi tlieir ti r.e, that
their minds ore not so niiiTuw as to inr
ogitntod liy the shape of it collar, bnt this
is pr-rhaps only an argument in fnvor of
the higher education of women. Ir their
minds were ch ilfgintiy rind suitably
furnished m those, of tlieir lirorlters,
would thoy not hnve something uiore
interesting io devote iliemselvas to?
Iress is a kind of recreation, like
poetry or music, not the tilisoi'bing interest of a lifetime:, although one r islit
suspect quite thf r.-vei-re. Too profound
attention to it is debilitating to tire mental libre; like sorrre puisous, it hns an
accumulative cliect; ono can not trille
with it or It assarts itself, and becomes
an intoxication in one case, a fetich iu
another.
It is always a p'e"Bure i0 sae Wl-
dressed people; a gown thnt tits badly,
colors ill assorted, tawdriness, depross
ono like bad drawing, liko "sweet bells
'angling out of tune"; b*ht those who put
their soul into tlieir clothts, into Un:
a*ang of a skirt or tbe set of it sloevo, have
generally very littlo elso to recommend
tliem, and one soon exhatisUi their lo-
sources.
"A sweet disorder in tho tress" may
ae advised for artistic eli'ect; it relieves
primness and gives a touch of piquancy
.ontoilette; but tho disorder must not
apse into a disease; onu is not moro cer-
ninly born with a genius for music, for
iteraturo or art, than another is born
ffith a tnsto for dress, knows what to
vear and how to wear it.

Whito fro Aztecs, who ruled Mexico
lrofora tbo Spanish conquest, had some
l.j*..iwioilge or iUo arte, and taught their
(Irilriieir somo excellent maxims, mania :■; ; nd morals, yet thoy wero great
idolulors.
They believed in the existenco ot tho
soul, anil iu its immortality, and in future
rewards aud punishments; hut tlioy
worshipped a multitude of gods and goddesses in ninny ways that were very
cruel and revolting, as well as wicked.
Thousands of human beings, usually
yo nig men oryoun: women, nnd sometimes boys and girls, wore slain as a sacrifice to ttieir cruel rjotls.
Tho Aztucs had a vague Idea of a supreme boing,called 'leotl," or "God,"
whose greatness they described by tho
BtrongCst and most expressive terms, but
they nover represented him by images.
Ho was called by titles which meant,
"Ho who gives us life," or, "Ho who
embraces everything." The great evil
spirit was called by a name which means
"Iho reasoning owl |" he wasopposedto
Teotl, aud was the enemy ol tho human
race.
Next to Teotl was a god whoso
name means, "i'ne shining mirror;" his
images always representing him as holding ti mirror iu las baud, it was an idol
inii.le of brilliant black marble, and having u hideous face, ln its ears were gold
rings, a tube of crystal hung from its
lower Up, tho hair, was bound with a
to.d .cord, the hrrias^. and arms wero
covered with gold, in one hand wasa
gulden fan ornamented with feathers in
tlie  lonn of a mil ror, tho  body was
tiniiilcd black, uml it was seated on a
euch, with a mantle of red cloth on
which wero embroidered skulls and
human bones.
This is one of tho prayers which the
worsbipp irs oJoro.I to tbo god:
".MigniyGud, ih.u who girest mo llfo
nn I whose, slave I run, grant me the supremo graco of tiring mo moat- uml
drink; grnnt mo ihe enjoyment of thy
clemency, that it mny support ine in
mv labors aud my warns, havo pity on
ine who livo sad, poor, and abandoned,
nu 1 slnco I serve theo by sweeping thy
temple, open lo ino the hands oi thy
niercy."
Tho Aztecs addod to the great number
of their gods by milking guds of the sun
nml the moon. They regarded tobacco
nlso as an incarnation ot female deity.
Tbey had a god ol liro, of the air, of tho
so.i, a go.l of tbe year and of verdure, a
goddess of tho oitrih and of maize, a god
of hell, u god of wnr, u god of terror, of
tlio chase, of litr.irng, of medicino, of
wine, a goddess ol dentil, of dowers, ol
trick' ry, ol old w.inieu, and two hundred
aurl sixty to throe hundred others which
need not bo named.

at Chilliwhack, defying the law and
laughing at the ordera issued by tho
court, but he must pay New Westminster a visit mid air his smartness to a
larger audience, Ho arrived yeBterday
afternoon and without loss of time tilled himself to tho brim with forty rod
whisky, after which he sallied forth
and related his adventures to auy ono
who would take the trouble to listen
to them. He went a little further
than was necessary in his statements
and was particularly severe, nnd not
very choice, in his language towards
all concerned in his arrest He has
been arrested and will probably come
up for a hearing to-morrow.

Mr. W. B. Wilson, one of our must
well-known citizens, has just completed the sale of a large quantity of property in this city and Vancouver, also
somo farming lands in different parti of
tho district. The valuo of the sale

000, and it is believed to be about the

The -Ureal Valine Affair.
Mr. Hogben has favored us with a
communication on the recovery of his
lost valise, in whicli ho says Constable
Carty worked to the best of his ability
and intelligence, coupled with all possible legal and magisterial aid. Everyone will bear witness to this statement,
for it is well known that Constable
Carty worked night and day on tho
case, and lost so much rest from overwork and mental anxiety that his
weight was reduced eleven pounds in
four days. Mr, Hogben furthor states
that the valise was not discovered until
the arrival of his own private detective
This must be consoling to Mr. Hogben
and very satisfactory and flattering to
the private detective, for these gentlemen, as a rule, are not particularly
noted for getting at the bottom of
suoh intricate affairs as was this great
valise transaction. The valise has been
found, Constable Carty won muoh renown, the detective did his work skillfully, and Mr. Hogben is satisfied with
the final wind-up of this mysterious
caso.
Mr. J. Leist, warehouseman for Lautz
Bros,, Buffalo, N. Y., says lie had a

A Hnlrbreadlli Kxcnitc.
The train from the west this morning and the paaaengera aboard had a
very close call about three miles on
this side of Anthracite. A now Howe
truss bridge is being put in across the
Bow in place of the old bridge. Owing to a sudden thaw there was a big
rush of water, which played havoc
with the supports of the old bridge.
When the train struck the west end of
it the driver, Lou Patrick, noticed that
thero wss something wrong and he,
quick as thought, reversed his engino.
This gave the passengers a little jerk,
which was almost immediately followed
by another, and then eamo a stop so
sudden that they were huddled one
against another, but no ono was injured. When an examination was
made iu tho morning, all on board
realized what a narrow eBcapo they had
experienced. The engine was partly
on a rail which inclined down to the
water, the tonder was almost over on
its side, und a car of silk, which was
next, was in an equally bad predicament, while tho baggage ear was also
somewhat off tho level. Had the engine gone six inches further she must
have dropped into tho river, and would
havo dragged the train with her. But
the prompt and bravo action of the
driver, who stuck to his post like a
hero, averted the calamity, and the
passengers have him to thank for their
almost miraculous eaoape. — Calgary

Geo. Dodge, sr., a well-known citizen
of Emporium, writes that ono of his men

day. ______
