A despatch from London intimates
that many peoplo in Great Britain
are beginning to regard commercial
union between Canada and tho
United States with considerable
favor. While apprehensive that it
would somewhat diminish British
exports to _ this country, they are
of opinion that it would result in
such increased development here as
would increase British investments
in this country which now amount
to a vast sum.

on the Bourse and bulled or beared
it by a smile or a frown. It is too
bad that tho welfare of over three

that the lists which opened this morning closed ut noon. Tho subscription
amounts to no less than five million
pounds sterling. Somo journals this
morning were inclined to question the

said that the jbsuo price is not cheap,
considering the socurity. This gratifying success is a complete answer to
all theso criticisms.
FIGHTING IN THE SOUDAN.
Suakim, Jan, 17.—Digna's hostile
forces were on Sunday dispersed by a
body of friendly natives, but rallied
und subsequently compelled their adversaries to retreat towards Suakim.

destroying tho fences on tho sheep
farina. Tlio crofters charged upon the
police with fences rails and st'iiies and

Tho wildest excitement prevailed towards noon when tho market became
little better and quotations showed
87 cents.
A CRUSADE AGAINST THK K.  OF L.
Ottawa, Jan. 17.—A movement
against tho Knights of Labor, headed
by capitalists of the province of Quebec, has been organized. It bas beon
decidod to introduce, at tho coining
meoting of tho IcgUla'uro at Quebec,
a bill to regulate tho Knights of Labor
nnd all combinations having for thoir
object tho compulsory ami arbitrary
stoppngo of industrial nnd mercantile
shipi ne tits.
A  MULTITUHK OF ARRESTS.
St. Petkhsiiurg, Jan. 17.—On tho
night (»f tho 12th there were 887 arrests of nihilists and [jeraons suspected
of being nihilists. All are believed
to hnve been connected with tho recently discovered plot ag-iinst ihe czar.

confirmation of the story told by Wilfred Blunt alleging that Mr. Balfour
hnd expressed his determination toim-
prisi.n a number of homo rule leaguers
who wero physically unablo to survive
their incarceration, hns hnd the effect
of cotivorting a largo number of por-
sons to the bolief in tho truth of
Bluut's statement. That ugly -story
ought te be told to every Knglishmnn
with the utmost circumstantiality of
detail, am), i. the earliest possible moment, laid beforo parliament. It has
also moved numbers of member* to efforts to hnve the Irish secretary arraigned bofore the houso of oiiiumons
and it is likely that Mr. Balfour will
be confronted at tho outset, of the coining session with tho present ense,
against which a general denial will be
of no avail. A great many torioa havo
nlroady put themselves upon record »a
having condemned Mr. Balfour's indiscretion, not to characterize hiB utterances iu strongest tormB, and without the BUpport of those gentlemen it is
dillicult to seo how the chief secretary
is to clear himself of tho charges of
gratuitous vindietivenoss.

A BIG STRIKE  AHEAD.
Beading, Jan. 18.—Public opinion
is gradually gaining ground in the
Scheykill Valley that the present strike
is only the beginning of a great struggle botweon capital and labor, the coal
pool on one side and tho K. of L. on
the other. Conservative businessmen
see nothing but gloom ahead, tha
stoppage of coal mining continues and
only 75 cars came down laat night
The miners all over this region remain firm believing they have the
company at their mercy., The reti*
cence of the company has encouraged
the bolief that the ooal pool engendered the strike and is now combined to
crush out the organization of the employees, and that president Corbinwas
recluctantly compelled to join in with
tlio pool and that he is now between
two forces, his employees and the
othor members of the pool.
NOTABLE REUNION.
Ottawa, Jan. 18.— A meeting at

examination. One day a chubby faced
ruddy youth called at the office and
said lie wantod to study law. He wtt
taken in tho ofllce at once; and his
name was Oliver Mowat. Never since
the oflice in Kingston was broken up
hnvo the threo had a private conversation. Yosterday Sir Alex, suggested
a reunion and communicated with
both. Tho three had a good old fashioned talk ovor days past and gone.
Politics woro eschewed but the three
old men hnd an enjoyable threo quar*
tors of nn hour together.

Wednesday Evening, Jan. lfl, 18SS.
Not many of our readers, perhaps,
are aware of the extent to which
tho manufacture of cheese lias de-
volopod in eastern Oanada. From a
statement just published we learn
that during the past year no less
than 1,250,000 boxes have been exported, representing a value of over
**8,000,000. About 1864 tho first
co-operative cheese factory was established in Canada, and ten years
ago the export was about f)00,000
boxes. The manufacture still goes
on steadily increasing, und tho demand for Canadian cheese never
seems to woakeu. Tho cheese export from tho United States is comparatively small for two reasons: (1)
Tho consumption in that country
increases more rapidly than the production, and (2) American cheese is
not equal in quality to the Canadian
product. It is said tho geographical situation and circumstances of
eastern Canada are peculiarly favorable to cheese making, which gives
Canadian makers a very decided
advantage. Those who have given
attention to the subject are of opinion that this industry will continue
to grow, and it is believed the timo
will come when our exports will
reaoh §20,000,000. It is well known
that thero has been very little profit in raising grain in eastern Canada for soveral years. The tine soil
has been much exhausted, and if
liberal manuring is resorted to the
cost of production goes on increasing. While wheat growing takes
away the strength of the land, cheese
making increases its fertility, because the cattle furnish manure
whioh practically ' costs nothing.
The raising of stock, and the manufacture of butter and cheeso havo
come to bo among the most important and most profitable industries
of the east, and there is every prospect that wheat growing will con
tinue to decline. The competition
of the great wheat fields of tho west
ond of India is too much for farms
where crops arc small and uncertain,
and we believe the timo is not far
off when the older provinces will be
importing wheat instead of exporting it,
Last evening the snow had attained a depth of about 10 inches.
About 6 o'clock it grew very much
milder, ond shortly after a Chinook
.wind began to blow. This morning
the snow had been reduced to 3
inches. The loose ice which had
been floating about in the river for
several days, interfering with navigation, was broken up completely
and had nearly all disappeared.
After a cold dip, extending over
nearly two weeks, we have emerged
into a genuine thaw, and it is probable there will be no more cold
weather to speak of this winter. It
iprely ever happens here that we
have more than one period of cold
in a season. That period usually
comes to us about the end of January or early in February. This year
it has eome earlier than usual and
the low temperature has continued
unusually long. Tho lowest reading
was two degrees above zero, hut
during several nights it went below
12. Water pipes which never suf
fered beforo wero frozen solid, ond
considerable inconvenience has been
experienced in many ways. It may
be said, however, that excessive
cold has prevailed over a large portion of the continent. In Manitoba
ond tho Northwest the thermometer
has been away down ut 30 and 40
and 50 below zero. The same frigid
state of things has prevailed extensively in the northern states, and
severe frost lias penetrated away
south to regions hitherto supposed
to be beyond the line of frost altogether. Viewing rill the circumstances, the people of this province
will find much cause for thankfulness. If we have suffered more
that the usual amount of cold, we
have nevertheless suffered nothing
at all in comparison with other parts
of the continent, and now, while
others ore just in the middle of the
cold season, we may congratulate
ourselves upon having passed out of
it safely. Our telegraphic despatches yesterday give some particulars
of the terrible devastation wrought
by tho storms and cold elsewhere.
In every direction trains have been
snowed up, cattle have perished by
thousands, and thousands of people
have lost their lives or endured
great suffering. It is quite certain
that these experiences will have
the effect of sending many people
from the cold regions to the Pacific

Look Out for It.—If you are

l.urrkily it dooa not requiro long to
chorrso a witling ring. Thero Is not
irrrich variety lirtho plain, littlo gold
bands which aro the outward and visible signs of tbo matrimonial bonds.
Tiro young man chose a ring, it wns
shut up In a sweet, little velvet-liner!
box, and the prospective bridegroom
hurried  away.
. " An old fablo, a Action that almost
every man who buys a wedding ring
employs,'' said the jeweler aa th© customer disappeared.
"Of course he Is the man who will
put that ring on the linger of tho
brido, but lie says he wants It for a
friend. Thero are plenty of other
white Ilea told in front of this counter.   Snirio behind it you say?
"I tlr.ro sny, but a tradesman's lies
nbtiut In* wares are explainable If-not
excusable on business grounds, while
trome lit the lies of our customers are
I'riiiir'.rtt'c litis that one cannot account
for on n.ry theory at all.
"]lir;r.ii'nirii!3s, of course, Impels the
youth to [jiLirlnini that' the engagement
or t.'etiiiiiijt- riiig is not for him. But
1 have customers who tell lies deliberately, ami, so far as I can see, unnecessarily.
"For example there Is a resident
of tills city, wealthy and wise, and, It
persistent fabrication makes him' so,
wicked. He Is fond of Jewelry, and
bus good taste. Solltalro rings are bis
favorite.
"Ono day in almost overy month ho
rushes Into tho store, knocks over a
ptrnrl or two, perhaps scares some lady
customer nearly to death, and makes
lire instinctively reach for my revolver.
Then lie gasps out, ' I want to seo
somo diunioitd rings—awful hurry—
firtch train—start for Washington—half
hour.'
"This spasm generally lasts two
minutes. Afterward he settles quietly
rlowii und perhaps spends an hour look-
liig nt diamonds. He never varies his
formula, is always just on tbo point
ul going to Washington, and I happen to know he never goes.
" A remarkable romancer comes from
a good family.
"Sho Is a widow and has money,
and I often wonder she does not find
ii mate again, she Is- so pretty. At
intervals she comes and weaves a pretty story for my Benefit. There Is a
variety about her fibs whicli makes
them charming. They are as ingonl-
lous as thoy aro unaccountable.
" A month ago she came with her
little girl. She has some magnificent
diamonds—the' handsomest stones and
the best cut of any I have seen in
rittsburg. They were In her ears when
she entered the store.
" 'Mr. —, I want you to take theso
earrings,' she said, putting them down
before me, 'and' make the settings
lighter; they are too heavy and my
doctor says such a strain upon the
lobe of tho ear, la very Injurious.'
"The setting toWcrKit Well have
been made'lighter—a mere cobweb filigree. I knew my customer toe well
to tell her so. I took tho earrings
nnrl did have some of the gold ukcu
away, and sent them back to her.
" Yesterday she came again and lohl
mo that somebody had advised Iter to
Iruvo the diamonds moro securely eet
In her oarrlngs. She wanted them almost wrapped ln gold network. They
urtr being so treated now.
"You will hardly believe me whea
I tell you that In the last lew years
I havo set and reset those diamonds
twenty times, and every time my lady
hits had a new reason for making the
change. Why she should object to no-
knowledge that' she Is proud and fond
of her diamonds is awn than I oan
see.
" I could multiply these instances at
hnbltual mendacity by ten without en-
crirneblng upon tho ranks ofthe cranks
pure and simple with whom every
tradesman is more er lew acquainted.
I don't wonder at customers' stories
any more; I make lt a rule never to
believe them."—[Pittsburg Chronicle Tel-

Hy old brown dreoe, my old brown
dress,
You're past the days ot usefulness;
And I remember wilh, a sigh {
How fast the days and years go by.
You've boen a friend so tried and nue,
It Is so long sinee you were new,
That scares a tear I can-suppress
To say good-by, my old brown dress.
Poor old brown dress, poor old brown

You've learned. (THio many more, ao

Hut now, alas! 'tis all In vain;
You'll basque In sunshine ne'er again;
You're trimmed with frlnge-that'a not
enough,
I'll give you still UU» parting putf.
A varied life you've had; old dress,
For mnny times you've- gone to press,
Been mended, turned and ripped apart,
Have known the skilled dressmaker's
art.
And once you dyed, but looked so
new
That no one near mt- knew 't waa you,
While doubtless you " laughed in your
eleere"
To see how color could daoeiir*
Dear old' brawn drat, dear old brown
dress,
I smooth you* folds with tenderness.
So much has happened since the timo
I woro you In your lustrous prime.
The treasured friends .who knew me
then
Rave passed beyond "our mortal fcsoi"
I call them, hilt tbey do not oome;
Their hearts are cold, their lips «e
dumb.
And now good-by, old threadbare dress,
How long. I've worn you none oan rush.
You'll now be' laid upon the shell.
Just as I soon must be myself.
I'm but a speck upon the tide—

"LltTLE DEDE.*"
*A,
We call hor " Llttlo Dede." By we,
I mean her mamma and I, who am
her father, and the friends who know
her best. Her right namo Is Edith,
but when she was two years old she
nave us her baby version of " Litlir-
Edith," and we havo called hor by tin.
name of her own making ever since.
She lives ln New York, whero she was
born.
" Little Dodo" Is four yenrs old
now, and she is very proud of telling
folks so. Sho says very bright thlnijs
somotinres, and this l/> the reason wli.r
I now tell tho boys and git-Is somo o!
tho little speeches sho has made.
Ono day quito a loitj; time ago, she
wns moro quiet than usual, und I
missed her bitby singing.
"Won't you  sing for pnpa, Dodo?"
"I can't, pupa;   my mouf is locked."
On ono occasion when tlio letier-
miin brought a paper for mo, " Littlo
Dede " said:
" Lot mo tako tho skin off, pnpn."
Thnt was a busy timo for " Llttlo
Dede's" eyes wheir tho doctor came nr
vaccinate tiro baby. She wurched li'm
very closely as ho scratched Lire \\\\'..s
fat leg with his sharp lancet. AVnerr
ho hud gone sho looked all around,
and thon asked:
" Did tho doctor take Us blood-
picker with ln:n?"
Sho wns-two years and a quarter old
when taken on a visit to Erigirur I.
Whllo thero she lived In a big t'orvr,
and ono day was missed for houj-r.
, Peoplo went overy way to lind Ire.-.
Her cousin Eddlo met with her quit j
:a long way off. What do you thin:;
sho was doing? Sho wns at au open-
air meeting of tho Salvation Army,
her dear llttlo head uncovered fiorit
tho light rain that was fulling, turd
listening with all her might, her dully
bunging limply over her arm, to the
worship. Tito Army folks hud a band,
drums and clashing cymbals and noisy
brass horns, and hearing them pus r,
the littlo witch had slipped out and
followed them. Vory glad wns dear
Kililio to Hnd her, but he suid, as if
much hurt that sho had run away:
"Oh, Dede I   Why did you run away?','
" I wanted to hear the nroosic, Eddie," sold " Littlo Dedo " quietly.
I cannot suy that my treasure is always a good girl. Hor inumnm sometimes talks to her nbout her naught,'
doings; and I am afraid tire liliiii
culprit is ready as a lawyer to defend
herself.
Ono day her mother, speaking of
somo pretty little girls at a window on
tiro opposlto sldo of tiro street, snld
how good they were.
" So should I be, ma, tt I lived
there."
Nor is "Llttlo Dodo" always as
proper In what sho snys to older
folks ns I. desire her to Ire.
After hor uurso hnd put hor to hod
one night, thnt grave pot-son wus overheard to reprovo her, In a tone of
high scorn the youngster replied;
" Don't you talk lo inc."
Out shopping ono day with her mamma, a clerk said:
"Won't you give me your pretty
curls?"
He was a large, fat person—his head
ovor so big.
Looking up at him, "Little Dede"
spoke:
" Your head Is too largo and fat for
my curls."
The funnlost thing about my little
sweotheart Is that she speiiks quite
seriously oven when her words seem to
be port; and thero uro times whon
Bho talks about God and heaven so
sweetly that her silly papa thinks sire
is tlie best and wisest minister lie ever
heard.
She has just loft 1dm, and is sleeping iu her crib near by. Ton minutes
ago she lind hor arm round my neck
and was saying;
" Papa, I lovo you. I lovo you' all
tho day and when tho moon shlnrrj
I lovo you all tho tlmo, papa, dear.
Mo kiss you good-night."
And the tiny angel ln her night robo
slipped off my knoo to be placed in
her own little bod.
May God spare to us our "Llttlo
Dede."  Wo dare not think what our
homo would be without her.—[P. A.

A Diiguited Juror.
An old fellow who hod served during
soveral weeks on a jury created a sensation in court by arising during a trial
and addressing the Judge
"'Squr," eald ho, "Jos' listen to ino

tact that I have mado a big mistake.
I come horo an' hung round trylm to

"Well, what Is the matter with
you?" tho Judge demanded.
"Tm coinln' to that. I got thar,

Perfeot Hair
Indicates a natural and healthy condition of the scalp, and of tho glands
through which nourishment is obtained.
When, in consequence of age and disease, the hair becomes weak, thia, and
gray, Ayer's Hair Vigor will stmngthen
it, restore its original color, promote its
rapid and vigorous growth, and impart
to it the lustre and freshness of youth.
I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for a
long time, and am convinced of its
value. When I was 17 years of age my
hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
tbe good effects it produced. It not
only restored the color to my hnir, but
so stimulated Its growth, that I have
now more hair than ever before.—

would bring the str. Yosemite up the

obstruct navigation to-day.
The house of commons vacation was

the return of Mr. Johnston from Viotoria. The honorable members quickly
became cognizant of the fact that parliament had re-opened, and before the

The Weekly Columbian was issued

exciting and hardly contested that has

Biven a lecture aud recitation here on

that ho will give his lecture in this city
next Friday night, at the Masonic

night he will give a lecture on the
Holy Land in tho Vancouver Presbyterian church. The doctor has been
suffering from a severe cold.
Melted Away.
Want of Space.
Our local cotemporary, the Guardian,
solemnly announces to its readers today that owing to want of space "some
very interesting matter" was held over.
The interesting matter referred to
must be "Foreign Affairs," or that
celebrated "Washington Letter," [and
to spring a paper on an unsuspecting
public with neither of thoso interesting articles in it, certainly calls for tho
apology on tho part of our cotemporary which is so gracefully given. The
public nccept the apology, but hope it
won't occur again.
knight* of Lnlier,
Tho district assembly of Knights of
Labor met in this city on Monday and
Tuosday. The discussion of higher
education for the masses was one of
the principal subjects brought before
the assembly. Proposed amendments
to certain clauses iu the mechanics
lien law were drawn up and will laid
before the provincial legislature, by
the members from this district, during
the coming session. The local assembly entertained the district motnbers
to a dinner yesterday afternoon at the
Club. About twenty members were
present and a very enjoyable time wns
spent.
A Fnluful Case.
Complaints having been mado that
Mrs. Gerald, of Chilliwhack, had been
neglecting her children, an investigation was made which revealed a very
shocking state of affairs. The two
little children had boon shamefully
neglected, nnd tho mother seemed to
be entirely without natural feeling
towards them. Officer Moresby yesterday obtained an ordor from Mr.
Justice McCreight appointing tlie
supreme court registrar guardian for
the children. They have been sent
for and will be placed in the convent
here until provision can bo made for
their future wolfare. It is generally
believed that the mother ia not of
sound inind.
Tlie Telephone Service.
Under propor management the telephone soon becomes as much a necessity to business men as the newspaper
or tho mail. Very many complaints
keep coming to us, however, about the
servioe in this city. One must make
allowance for accidents, but such allowances cannot bo expected to cover
the defects that exist. Either tho implements in use aru defective, or they
aro not kopt in efficient working order,
and the dissatisfaction is almost universal. Some have given up their instruments altogether, and many -'titers
threaten to do so unless the service is
improved. It is a great pity that this
most useful appliance should not be
operated more efficiently.
ttcatelimen for British Columbia.
Alexander Begg, agen( of tho British Columbia government, has just arrived in Halifax from England. His
mission has been very successful. He
has induced the British government to
advance £150,000 sterling at 3£ per
cent, interest upon British Columbia
security for the purpose of assisting tho
immigration of Scotch crofters and fishermen to the Pacific coast. The British government, not wishing to favor
one class of emigrants more than another, fixed n commercial rate of interest. Begg's scheme is to advance
9600 to each family of fivo persons, to
be repaid with interest upon tlio sinking fund principal within 20 years.
He thinks that the loan will transport
0000 Scotchmen to tho Pacific const.
He wont as far north as John O'Groat's
Land, visited the Highlands and the
islands nnd eastern coast of Scotland,
and everywhere found the crofters,
fishermen and others anxious to emigrate and inclined to accept privileges
offered if they can be satisfied that
British Columbia is what it is represented to be. To assure themselves
on this point they will send out delegates of their own class, and examine
nnd report in the spring. Mr. Begg
is now en route to Viotoria to report
to the British Columbia government
the details of his mission, and if they
accept the British government's offer,
he thinks that 2,000 croftcr-i and fishermen will come out this year, and
that those etlbrts of British Columbia
will also swoll Scotch emigration to
other parts of Canada.
Yesterday's heavy Bnow storm was
followod by a Chinook zephyr which
aet in about 0 o'clock last evening, and
thia morning the snow had almost disappeared. Tho ice in the river has
been broken up and most of it has disappeared leaving navigation between
this city and tho gulf unobstructed,
The Chinook wind still continues with
the thermometer at 42 °. Tho Princess Louise did not venturo out of
Victoria yesterday owing to the snow
storm that raged there all day.

Rev. Thos. Scoulor has returned

Victoria a visit returned to day.

Tlie First Observation.
San Josk, Cal. Jan. 8.—The first
satisfactory observation through the
Lick telcscopo was made Inst night at
9 o'clock. Tho sky was cleary tho
weather cool, and no rain. The big
telescope was first pointed at nebula
in the constellation of Orion, which
appeared to Messrs. Clark, Swazey,
Keeler, and Floyd more magnificent
than ever before. About 11 o'clock
Saturn also was observed with satisfaction. Only medium power was
used. The observation closed about
midnight. The work on tho photographic lens will immediately proceed.
The British Army,
The British army now consists of 211,-
000 officers and men. There were 3,300
men added to it last year. This army
guards somewhat more than 2,000,000 of
square miles of territory. Neither
Australia nor the Dominion of Canada
is taken into this calculation. Of this
211,000 nearly 106,000 aro quartered in
the British Islands, which is 5,000 more
than there were a year ngo. There are
27,300 officers and men in Ireland, with
3,000 horses and 00 guns. This army is
under the command of Prince Edward of
Wcimcr. There are only 3,800 officers
and men in Scotland, 450 horses and four
field guns. In Egypt there are 5,000
troops, with 700 horses and no field guns.
There are 5,000 men of all ranks in Gibraltar, and 0,000 men in Malta. In
Cyprus there arc 500 men. In South
Africa the troops stand at about 3,500
and 000 horses. Iu Hong Kong there
are about 2,800 of all ranks, and in
Ceylon 1,200. There arc only 1.4C3
Imperial troops in Canada and thoy arc
Rationed iu Halifax. In the West
Indies tho number of troops is 2,300.
Sir Frederick Roberts has under his command in India 72,000 white troops. In
Burmah, there are 5000 men, whieh appears to bo included in the above number,
not nearly so many as there were last
year.
A. B. Dob Rochcrs, ArthabaskavHlc,
P, Q., writes: "Thirteen years ago I was
seized with a severe attack of rheumatism in the head, from whicli I nearly
constantly suffered, until after having
used Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil for nine
days, bathing tlie head, kc, when I was
completely cured, aud have only used
half a bottle."

BRIBERY ANIS   OOItRDPTION.
MONTREAL, Jan. 15.— The Glengarry
contested olectiun case, which was
tried yesterday at Cornwall before
Justice Rose, showed oxteii3ivo corruption, taking the form of loans en
notes, which do not now seem to have
boon presented for collection. Lirge
sinus wore confided to agents, who dis-
[.o-.od.of thorn in this way. One witness tostitied I hat he was handed a
S100 bill by tui unknown man. and
added that hu did not deem it a remarkable circuiusfrniico, nor did it
strike him that it had anything to do
with tho election, Monroe, Pun-ell's
finunciiil agent, testified to having
loanod between 825,000 aud 935,000
between October, 1880, and the 23rd,
of February, tho election day. Entry
books were stopped in March, 1887,after the elections. A. McNabb, one
agent testified that he spent $2,245,
which ho got from Mr. Monroe. Pur-
cell's evidence was of a most unsatisfactory character, and he was severely
rebuked by the judge. His answers
wero evasive, and liU memory defective, until tho facts wor.) thrust before
his notice. His testimony revealed
extensive indirect corruption. Another witness swore to having heard
Purcell say he had spoilt §30,000 on
the election. The defence was practically nothing, and the election was
voided. Thu personal ohm-gee for
