A writer asks: "Does it pay
to be good!" Woll, thero are a
large number of clergymen in thia
stole alone whose salaries are not
over $500 a year each, while John
L. Sullivan, the slugger, often makes
a few thousand dollars in less than
an hour. Draw your own inference.
It may pay bo'.ier in the rext world,
however.—Norris:own Herald.
The Bank of England doors are
now so finely balanced that a olerk,
by pressing a knob under his desk,
can dose the outer doors instantly,
and they oannot be opened again
exoept by special process. This is
done to prevent the daring and ingenious unemployed of the metropolis from robbing the bank. Tbe
bullion departments of this and
other banks are nightly submerged
several feet in water by the action
of machinery. In some banksth beul-
lion department is connected with
the manager's sleeping room, and an
entrance cannot be affected without
shooting a bolt in the dormitory,
which in turn sets in motion an
alarm. If a visitor during the day
should happen to knock off one from
a pile of half sovereigns the whole
pile would disappear, a pool of water
taking its place.—Ex.
The union between New England and the maritime provinces of
the Dominion is already a pretty
close one, and it is not a commercial
union, exactly, either. A Boston
authority Btates that New England
has already annexed a large and
very desirable part of the maritime
provinces of Canadian Dominion.
He refers, as he is kind enough to
explain, to the Nova Scotia and
New Brunswick youngwomen who
have come to Boston or other towns
in New England, to earn a livelihood
in one way or another, or merely in
company with their parents, and
who have subsequently married
Yankees. The Atfmllir' St ""NeV
England men with Nova Scotia women for wives, this sociologist says,
is something very surprising. He
says that the eventual marriage of
Nova Sootia girls to Americans has
become so common that the thing
oftenest said in the provincial villages, when a young girl starts for
Boston to earn her living, is, "Well,
will you come back this way on
your wedding journey)"—Buffalo
Commercial.
Dr. Morell Mackenzie, of London,
lately made "Sir" knight by Queen
Victoria, is the physician the most
talked about everywhere at tho
present time. At an early stage
in the illness of the Crown Prince
of Germany, Dr. Mackenzie said
that if his disease were not malignant he could euro it. Previously
to this time Professor Virchow had
declared that the swelling in the
Prince's throat was of benign character. On the strength of this re-
port Dr. Mackenzie expressed the
confidence that the disease could be
cured. Tho contrary opinion is
held by eminent German physicians,
and the Englishman lately has soen
reason to change his mind. He
thinks the life of his patient can bo
prolonged about two years. Probably an operation will be undertaken from the outside of the Prince's
throat, severing the windpipe to admit of aocess to the diseased surface. Sir Morell Mackenzio will
not be an actyal participant in this
projected operation. As a matter
of course, his method of (ratting tho
Prince is severely criticized by
other physicians. That "doctors
differ" is abundantly demonstrated
in professional dealings with the
Crown Prince. Sir Morell Mackenzie, as long ago as 1858, became
a member of the Royal College of
Surgeons. He took the degree of
M, D. in the University of London
in 1862, and was elected a member
of the Royal College of physicians
of the same city in 1864. Dr. Mackenzie has long enjoyed high reputation for his special knowledge of
diseases of the throat and vocal or-'
gans. This was the reason why he
was called in to treat the Crown
Prince. It fell to the lot of Dr.
Mackenzie to disclose to his patient
his dangerous condition, Speaking
of this occurrence he stld recently:
"My message was received with
most perfect calmness. The Prince,
after an instant of silence, put out
his hand with his usual winning
smile, and grasping mine, aaid: "I
have been lately fearing somothing
of this sort. I thank you, Sir
Morell, for being so frank with uie."
At dinner that evening he was the
most cheerful of tho party. In all
my experience I have never seen a
man bear himsolf under similar circumstances wilh such unaffected
heroism, Dr. Mackenzie visited
this oountry in 1882. While in
Washington he was the guest of Dr,
Carroll Morgan, of that oity.—

FATAL COLLISION.
Los Angeles, Dec. 12.—A collision
last night, between two flat car trains,
killed Thos. Rose aod fatally injured
Jas. Gilbert, Frank' Garret- and Ju.
Kelly.
THE   FISHERY   COMMISSIONERS   ACREE.
New York, Deo, 12.—A special
from Washington this morning says:
A rumor prevails here that the joint
fisheries commissioners-have actually
agreed upon a treaty and that the adjournment to January 8th, was only
to keep tho fact from getting out before the treaty was sent to the senate.
The administration was 'anxious to
forestall criticism on the policy by
having something to lay beforo the
Benate,*,but reports leaking out about
the negotiations have all been to the
effect that the hitch waa with tho
Canadians. Early in the weak George
Foster, had boen counselling with the
British commissioners. It has been
no secret that the Canadians were
anxious to drive a bargain for the sale
of privileges in the shore fisheries
whioh the New England fishermen did
not want. These propositions were
not satisfactory and the Canadians
have been stubborn about shifting the
basis of negotiations.
THREE MEN   KILLED.
Stanton, Va., Deo. 12.—Two
freight trains on the Chesapeak &
Ohio railroad havo collided near
Clifton Forge. Both were wrecked
and three men were killed.
THE CONCESSIONS SOLID.
New York, Deo. 12.—The World
today publishes a. three oolumns interview with Metkiewicz, in whioh the
latter insists that tho Chinese concession il solid and valuable ahd says that
all reports of rescinding on the Port
of China cminnto from the houso of
Russell & Co., American commiaaon
brokers in China, tho members of
whioh are directors in tho Hong Kong
and Shanghai bank.
WANDEEINO WILLJE ON COMMERCIAL
, tmiON.
New York, Deo. 12.—Wm. Mo-
Dougall, a member of  the Canadian
Karliament for a number of years, and
[amtoba's first lieut.-governor, is in
the oity. In an interview last evening
he talked at great length in favor of
commercial union between the United
States and Canada, and made plain the
fact that he would put forth his best
efforts to secure suoh a treaty. The
feeling of a large mass of the Canadian
people it not properly represented by
the present Canadian government.
Sir Charles Tupper, member of the
cabinet, differs very materially in his
views from tho mass of tho people.
Especially since the passage of the retaliation bill the present government
and its representatives were elected by
the Canadian manufacturers, and look
at commercial union from tho manufacturers point of view, us does alio
Joseph Chamberlain, the English fish
commissioner. The manufacturer's
view is necessarily hostile to the introduction free of American goods.
Looking at the matter from a liberal
and the people's standpoint McDougall
said: "There waa only one way for
Canada to attain perfect development
and it is always by breaking down the
wall botwoon the United States and
herself. Ho favors a treaty based on
the projected treaty of 1874, and he
thinks this will yet be brought about
and perhaps very soon." Referring
to the fishery dispute he said he believed tho treaty of 1818 related to the
fisheries and fish alone and that commercial privilogcs rest entirely with
later trontios. This view is in opposition to the opinion of Sir John Mao-
douald's government.  Halifax Herald.

Melday Evening, Dee. IS, 1SST.
And now it is not rats, but rabbits! It seems ufter all that some
person who thirsts for I'nino is
seriously contemplating the intro
duction into this province of a colony
of rabbits. It may turn out that
this tnistukon philanthropist is only
joking, but a large portion of the
press has taken the intimation in
dead oarnest, and there has been un
almost unanimous protest against
the threatoned invasion. Pictures
havo boen freely painted representing tho devastation produced by
rabbits in Australia, and from all
quarters comes the warning to
British Columbia—beware of tho
rabbit! A, few days ago a letter
appeared in oue of the Victoria
papors stating that the alarm was
needless. The writer declares that
the conditions in this country are
not at all so favorable to the propagation of rabbits as in Australia, and
that there is no danger of their ever
becoming a pest. Perhaps not, but
before taking chances we think it
would be wise to settle the question
thoroughly. The fate of Australia
is too dreadful to contemplate with
equanimity. It has suffered to the
extent of millions of dollars, and has
spent hundreds of thousands in
fruitless efforts to exterminate the
plague. If any person wishes to
cultivate rabbits in this country, let
him first experiment in a safe way
where there will be no possible
chance of the animals escaping. If
it is then found that rabbits do not
take kindly to the country, and may
be trusted not to monopolize things,
let tnem be turned out to roam at
their own sweet will. There must
first be a guarantee against disaster,
however, for the people of British
Columbia do not propose to take
chances in a matter where the consequences are so serious. We have
managed to get along very well these
thirty years without rabbits, and
we are not suffering to any great
extent even now because of their
absence.
Every few days fresh evidence
comes to light showing the extent
and shocking character of the
Chinese slave trade carried on in
thi, provinoe and the adjacent states,
Not many days ago a Ohinese girl,
about 18 years of age, was bought
ih Victoria and brought to this city,
the sum paid for her being over one
thousand dollars. This young woman became the property of the man
who bought her; but he had learned
enough of civilized ways to know
that his possession would not bo secure in this country. He proceeded,
therefore, to the government agent,
procured a marriage license, went
before a clergyman who knew nothing of the circumstances, and wus
properly married. This is a trick
which is commonly resorted to now
by those Chinamen who wish to
cover up their villainy and put on
an appearance of honesty. It so
happened that the young woman
mentioned above had previously belonged to a Chinaman in Victoria,
who also had gone through a form
of marriage for the purpose of retaining legal possession of her. This
man is said to be in Seattle. When
the circumstances were brought to
the notice of the authorities at Victoria, a constable was despatched to
this eity to get the woman; but it is
said that her new owner gave the
officer $20 and persuaded him to
return home without his prisoner.
It may be proper to observe here
that the Victoria police force is
commonly reported to be shockingly
eol.-upt in as far as its dealings with
the Chinese aro concerned. We do
not say that every member of the
force ia open to this serious charge,
but we do say it is commor'y believed that many of them are in the
habit of accepting bribes from
Chinamen and closing their eyes to
the very thing they are expected to
see. This is a stato of things that
ought at once to be made tho subject
of earnest and exhaustive enquiry.
Rottenness in the administration of
justice is a matter of too serious n
character to be tolerated. It will
speedily take away the safeguards
whioh, at suoh great cost, have been
placed around life and liberty. If
the authorities were as much alive
to their duty as they ought to be,
we .are inclined to think this Chinese
slavery, and other Ohinese abominations, would not flourish to the same
extent as they do now. It is really
time some very effective measures
were Bet ih motion for the suppression of thia illegitimate traffic in
human beings. It has always been
found most diffioult to deal with the
Chinese because " for ways that are
dark, and for tricks that are vain,
the heathen Chinee is peculiar."
Thoy oannot be trusted. They will
perjure thenuwlves whenever it is in
their Interest to do so. They have
a re— oomplete secret system of
terrorism which enables them to
keep the mouths of their victims
closed when required, or eompells
them to give evidence to suit the
exigencies of the oue. These girls
who are bought in China nnd sold
si chattels -in 'We country are
forced,-under pressure of this terrorism, to He Whenorer it becomes ne-
oeesary to screen their masters, end
they dare not tell the truth oven
under oath. Such a State of things
is a disgrace to our civilization. Let
a breach be made upon it nt once.
Your Children
Aro constantly exposed to -danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar tu tlio tliroj.it and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered, affords speedy relief and euro.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past win-
tor, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, wo
consider this preparation tho most cili-
caclous of all tho medicines which have
come to our knowlodge.—Mary Park-
hurst, Preceptress, Home for Little
Wanderers, Doncastor, Md.
My ohildren have boon peculiarly sub-
Jeot to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
ind any clTocMvo remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves tho
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint.—David Q. Storks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
In my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicino allays
p,U irritation, prevonts inflammation from
extending to the lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, Plainvillo, Mloh.
I find no meilicluo ao effective, for
Croup aud Whooping Cough, as Ayor's
Cherry Pectoral. It saved the life of my
littlo boy, only six montbs old, carrying
him safely through tho worst case of
Whooping Cough I over saw.—Jane

3t£axiag--BX. DEATH BY GUILLOTINE.
The Dead and Body Immediately Aftei
Decapltatlun.
Tho l'niyrrss Medical, jmblishes a paper
by I'rs. l't'gnard nnd I.oyo on the examination of Ihe hend and body of aconvict
immediately after hia decapitation by the
guillotine.
Tbo prisonor was calm to tha last and
not pale, even when his neck was fixed
riraily to receive the fatal knife. Two
9.-co Us after decapitation the cheeks
were Klill rosy, tho eyes wide open, with
ir oderatoly dilated pupils, the mouth
tlnnly closed. W lien a finger was placed
close to one eye no change of expression
took place, but on touching an eye or tho
tips of tho lashes during the first five
seconds, the lids closed just as in life.
This reflex action could not be excited
from tho sixth second after decapitation.
The jaws were tightly closed and could
not lo opened by manual force. No
similar contraction could be detected in
tlie trunk or extremities. One minute
after death the face began to turn pale,
. the trunk remained Aacld, the carotids
continuing to throw out blood remaining
in tho circularory area. At the end of
four minutes the face was quite pale, the
upper lids were half closed, the jaws less
lirnily clenched than bofore. Tho knlfo
inrssed through the lower port of the
fourth cervical vertebra.
These researches show that not a trace of
consciousness remains two seconds after
beheading; that reflex movement of the
cornea can be excited for two seconds;
thst tho heart may beat for an hour, tho
auricles continuing to pulsate alone for
over half that period, and that, putting
aside the reflex movements of the eyelid,
tho contraction of the jaws and the jots
ol blood from the carotids, it seemed In
this cose as though a corpse hod been decapitated, so inert Here the remains of
the convict. Dig. Hegnord and I.ttye
note how calm and free even from
physiological death-struggle symptoms is
death by the guillotine. -There Is not
even asphyxia.
Japancso Man-tod Womon.
There is not a single feature of Japanese woman Hfe but'appears most ob-
It'Ctlonnble; and, like the laws affecting
wo.neii generally, the code of Japanese
female etiquette requires radical revision.
Take Hint nasty practice of blackening
the tecih, the sign of a married lady,
of course, thore are numbers of lato
rears Who have adopted European
fiislrioiin, wives and daughters mostly of
.Inpanew, who have become imbued
wilh occidental ideas, orof men educated
abroad or having traveled in Europe.
These have given up the practice, but in
the ens •« of the volt majority of young
girls, no sooner does "Mr. Flkoyemon"
make an oiler of marriage—which is done
by fastening a branch of a particular
shrub lo the house of her parents—then
the damsel, if Ihe gentleman is accepted,
becomes entitled to dye her molars and
grin lent and pluck ont her eyebrows.
Ami the compound emploved to dye the
teeth is a most villainous mixture, often
corroding the lips and gums and "making tho gangrened mouth of a Japanese
Indy look Ilka the sepulehro of all
beauty."
No less objectionable is tha custom
which compels a young beauty of i'lran
to dye her lips a furious redf and hide
the natural carnation ot her cheek beneath a layer of violet point. It is unnecessary to say that there Is much in
.liipnnesrr etiquette and custom, which is
Illumined in iho character of tho peoplo,

fiBhoriuB 1i*j.b bemi »mitly iuoruaHorl by
visits from British Cuhuubitiiia to Halifax and othor ports of Nova Scotia,
purchasing vussula to ongngu in thoso
fisheries. Tlio latest arrival is -Captain
Dan McLean, who has juBt purchnetd
the ox-fishing cruiser Triumph, for, il
is reported, tho sum of $5,000. Capt.
McLean is a young Capo Bretonian,
not over 35. Eleven years ago ho wus
sailing out of Sydney before the mast.
Joining an American vosboI, he sailed
on the Pacific coast, and being a wide
awake man, as nil Cape Bretonians
abroad aro, he quickly comprehended
the future importance cf British Columbia and settled down in Victoria.
Then he sont for his brother. Four
years ago thoy engaged in tho seal
tisheries. This year they own two
vessels. Ono waa captured by Yankoo
pirates in the interestsof the Alaska fur
monopoly for fishing in the high seas
and is now rotting on tho shores of that
barron territory; the other is commanded by Captain McLean's brother.
The Triumph will mako tho third
vessel of their little fleet. The Pacific
seat fisheries are the richest that an
enterprising man can engage in. Laat
winter he caught 4,500 seals. Thoy
are worth from 87.50 to $10 each. The
largest catch iu one day was 375. During tho past four years ho has caught
12,000 seals, yielding 845,000. Those
valuable animals frequent certain
waters, islands and shores of the Pacific. Seal fishing on the Pacific ia
altogether different from Newfoundland. In the waters of the latter
place tho seals are all caught on the
ice. The fishing is attended of ton with
great danger, privation and risk. In
the Pacific it is a sure thing, and the
fishing is a sporting picnic. The seals
float on the wator, usually in small
groups, and aro shot by white men
and are harpooned by Indians from
their canoes. The supply is practically
inexhaustible. Every shot or spear
thrust is worth 88 to 810. Of tho
seals fired at, 95 per cent, are captured.
Whenever it is fine enough for a boat
to float, the men are suro of catching
a' fare of seals along tho shores of the
Pacific. Thero are plenty of those
marine animals there without going to
Behring sea. But western Canadians
are fond of adventure, and hence
sometimes go to Bohrings and othor
far oft' waters. Of the 35 vessels
engaged in tho Pacific seal fisheries, 22
are American and 13 are Canadian.
There is a great future for this
fishery; there is room for almost
any number of enterprising men;
and there's lots of money in it,
Cape P> re toman s aro already to the
fore-aa thoy always uro when opportunities for adventuro otfor. Already
this year nine Nova Scotia vessels have
been purchased to engage in these
fisheries viz: Tho schooner's Pathfinder, Sapphire, Viva, L. Houlotte,
MnggioMac, Annie C. Moore, Arau-
nah, Ariel; and Triumph. The Ariel
is a St John vessel; the other eight ire
Nova Scotinns. Threo of these were
employed in the fishery protection service, viz; the Houlette, Annie C.
Moore und Triumph. The Triumph,
built and owned by A. S. Hood, of
Shelburne, 105 tons, seven months
old, is ono of the prettiest, fastest nnd
best schooners ever built in Nova
Scotia. She was commanded last season by Capt. Lorway, and showed her
heels to every craft iu tho Canadian
and American fleets, except one, the
new fishing yacht Senator Morgan,
147 tons, carrying a large area of sail,
which beat her half a mile in a 25
mile race. It was largoly upon Lor-
way's recommendation thut McLean
bought her. She will leavo for the
Pacific in about three weeks. Moan-
while, McLean will visit his Cupe
Broton relatives. Among tho well-
known Cape Bretonians who havo gono
to the Pacific this season to fish seals
are Capts. Dodd, Kerr and Hackett,
Captain Grant (who bought tho Houlotte) and tho two McLeans were previously in the business. When tho
Ahaka fur company's monopoly ox-
fiires two years hence, a great boom is
noked for._
Peter Kiefler, Buffalo, saya: "I was
badly bitten by ti horse a few days ago,
and was induced by a friend, who witnessed tho occurrence, to try Dr. Thomas' Kclectriu Oil. It relieved the pain
almost immediately, und in four days
the wound was completely healed. Nothing can be better for fresh wounds."

Editor Columbian.—In your weekly issue, complaint is mado of what
"seems nn extortionate" fruight rate
of tho C. P. R. Co., on tho ground
that 81)210 was charged for carrying
42,000 lbs. of frozen salmon from Now
Westminster to Montreal. Tho charge
amounts to 2 cents por milo for every
ton of flab carried, and would make
an addition of 3 cents per lb. iu Montreal, to the value of the fish. But
suppose, in their laborious effort;* to
"oxtort" 2 cents por ton, in oue
particular mile ih the Selkirks or olso-
whero, the fish got jammed. What
then! why, Sir, instead of earning
81210 gross, the company would bo
mulcted some 810,000 net. In brief,
if the charge of tlie company be extortionate, considering the distance to bo
traversed, tho character of the journey
aud the nature of tho fishy freight,—
what in the name of reason would be
fair?   lam, etc,, Inquirkk.
