late British News.
Tlio Queen has just received from
the peoplo of Kimberly (diamond
field), South Africa, a gift consisting of a massive ivory casket, supported by four Corinthian pillars of
gold and enriched with plaques of
gold and crocidolite. These are
inscribed with the words "loyalty,"
"unity," "love," and "devotion."
Upon tho lid is a golden spray composed of the rose, shamrock, and
thistle, studded with 212 diamonds
—polished and rough—from the
four mines of Kimberly. An address to the Queen is contained in
the golden casket, which is lined
throughout with snowy ostrich
feathers. The question is already
being anxiously asked whether the
Prince and Princess of Wales' silver
wedding, which occurs.March 10
next, will be celebrated in semi-
privacy at Sandringham, or whether
it will form au excuse for giving to
London a brilliant winter season.
The latter is of course hoped for in
the interest of trade, and as tending to relieve distress. Great doings
in military circles have been the
order of tho day in connection with
the military jubilee of the Duke of
Cambridge. Hitherto the duke has
been only a field marshal commanding-in-chief, the Queen having, by
devolution, given up her rights, as
sovereign, to command the army.
George III, did so to the Duke of
Wellington, since whose death
there has been no commander-in-
chief, and the Queen now, by letters
patent, confers the dignity npon the
Duke of Cambridge, who entered
the British army in 1837. It is
generally believed in military circles
that the Duke will resign his newly-
acquired position next year. S(r,
Charles Dilke is said to have expressed his intention to endeavor
at the general election to take political honors once more, coming forward as a home rule candidate.
Baron de Stern, head of a leading
finnnclul firm 'in Xaiidnn, and nno
of tho weal thiestof the many wealthy
men in that city, has just died. The
extent of his fortune is estimated
$50,000,000. The extension of the
parliamentary franchise to women
is being actively agitated in different parts of tbe country. The
Marquis of Salisbury, through his
seoretary, says the report that the
government had arranged a scheme
for granting homo rule for Ireland
and restoring Grattan's parliament
is absolutely unauthorized, and that
he had never heard of it before the
announcement was made in the
newspapers. Lord George Hamilton, in a speech at Acton, said that
the association of Mr. Gladstone
and Mr. Pamell together commenced six years ago, when Mr. Gladstone imprisoned Mr. Pamell for
treason and sedition, In another
five years, said tho speaker, no
doubt Mr. Pamell would havo to
imprison Mr. Gladstone. Replying
to the letter of a Warwick correspondent, who called bis attention
to a recent protectionist meeting at
Warwick, Mr. John Bright says:
"The fair traders or protectionists
are in a muddle. During our great
agitation their arguments showed
a mass of ignorance and a confusion
of ideas. They snem no wiser now,
and facts and arguments are lost
upon them."

It seemed almost incredible that
probably one-half of llie cables now
lying nt the bottom of the ocean,
amounting to it value represented by
several millions sterling, had been
placed on the ocean bed, whilo those

totally ignorant of the bottom on

At a meeting of the society of
telegraph engineers and Electricians last evening Mr. Edward
Stallibrass read a paper on deep sea
sounding in conection with submarine telegraphy. Mr. Stallibrass
said the work of surveying with a
view to ascertaining the configuration of the ocean bed previous to
laying a submarine cable was of
vital importance. Between Cadiz
and Tenerifib alone, a distance of
about 700 miles, 673 soundings were
taken on one exdedition, resulting
in the discovery of two banks, two
coral patohes nnd four other shoal
spots. Some of the inclines near
these banks were remarkable for
their steepness. On the east side
of one of these the bottom fell precipitously for 450 feet, and on
a sounding taken by the Dacia
during her survey of the Seine bank
a precipice of 1,800 feet
was found. A map of the mouth
the Congo showed a most remarkable submarine gully, the contoser
lines of which were drawn from 202
soundings, many of these having
been taken at intervals of less than
ono mile. In the mouth of this re-
markableriver a depth of no loss than
1,452 feet was found, the Thames

New York, Dec. 5.—The .Yetcs,
whieh claims to be tho organ of the
laboring classes, says: "It is estimated thnt there nre 5,000 skilled
workers of both sexes out of employment in the city, and with the army of
common laborers and men who do all
sorts of odd jobs, it believed that the
total numbor of persons who are willing to work but cannot obtain employment is 10,000.
A TAN ANOLICAN SYNOD.
London, Deo. 6.—The Archbishop
of Canterbury has convoked a Pan-
Anglican Synod at Lambeth Palace on
July 3d, 1888. Its session is to
continue until July 23d, to enable the
committees to deliberate upon the
matters reforrcd to them. The synod
will, in nccorance with the Archbishop's call re assemble on July 23d,
and conclude on Jaly 27th. The subjects of discussion are designated as
follows: lirst, the practical work of
the church in relation to tomperance,
purity and tho caro of emigrants.
Socialism. Second, the definite teaching of the fnith to the various classes,
aud means thereto. Third, the Anglican communion in its relation to the
oastern churches, tho Scandinavian
and other Reform churches, the Old
Catholics and others.   Fourth,  poly-
famy, heathen converts and divorces,
'ifth, the authoriiativo standards of
doctrine and worship. Sixth, the
mutual rotations of the dioceses and
branches of the Anglican communion.
It is expected that two hundred bishops will be present.
LORD IliRTlNT.TOs's   ADDRESS.
London, Dec. 5.—Lord Hartington's
address to his constitutonts is thought
to indicate his definite severenoo from
tho liberal party. Ho declines to support the measure to abolish a plurality
of votes of one individual. This is one
of the planks of the liberal platform.
The abuse existing in this respect is
very serious. A gentleman holding
small quanties of land in different
counties boriBted that he had voted

local eelf-go/emment is full of danger,
nnd also at variance with the liberal
creed, which has always boen a recognition of the spirit of tho nation at
homo and abrond.
stances, a congested national treasury
and depleted monetary condition on
tho business of the country."
The tariff question is next discussed.
"Our present tariff laws," says the
president, "ought to be at once r»-
vised and amended. In the readjustment of our tariff interests American
labor engaged in manufacture should
be carefully considered, as well aa th*
preservation of our manufactures.
Tho American working men an entitled trr their full share of oar advantages. There are nearly 3,000,000
persons employed in mannfactoring
industries who are claimed to b. benefitted in high tariff- To these an appeal is made to save their employment
and maintain their wages by resisting
a change. The president deals largely
with the wool tariff, showing ill injury
and recommends its reduction in wt
revision of the tariff laws. Many of
the 4,000 articles subject Io duty under our presont laws do not in any way
compete, with our own manufacturer,
and many are hardly worthy of attention as subjects of revenue. No 'pro-1
tection or free trade theories art in.

whioh we.owe to the people is to reduce taxation to the necessary es,--;

which we hold in the treasury through

powers," Grover Cleveland.
THIS HOBKING'S DESFATCHK3.
THE PRESIDENTIAL MESSAUE.
Wasuinoton, Dec. 6.—The president's message to congress waa rend nt
noon iir-day. The following is a
synopsis: "You are confronted at tho
threshold of your legislative duties
with tliu condition of tho national
finances which impirntirely demands
immediate nnd careful consideration."
Tho presidont then refers to the recent
fears of financial crisis and operations
of the treasury department to avert
tho same, nnd continues: "Whilo the
expedients thus employed to release to
tho people money thon lying in the
treasury served to avert immediate
danger our surplus revenues have continued tn accumulate, tlie excess for
the present year amounting on the 1st
day uf December to $65,268,871, aud
it is estimated to reach tho sum of
$113,000,000 on tho 30th of June noxt.
Thero scrims to bo no occasion to
claim that logitiinnto means should not
bo devised by tho government to restore, in emergency, such money to its
place among tho people. The president objects to the proposition to de
posit government monoy in tho banks
throughout tlio country for the uso of
the people, stating among- other objections, that it would foster unnatural
reliance in private business upon publio funds. On closim? his remarks on
tho friiriiiciiil business he says: " If
disaster results from tho continued inaction of cnngrosB Iho responsibility
must rest where it belongs. The situation thus far it is considered, is
fraught with danger which should be
fully realized, and though it preionts
features of wrong to the people as well

and apparent cause, constantly reproducing the same   alarming circum-

A LOCOMOTIVE BOILER EXPLODES.   1 J
Halifax, N. S., Dec. 6.—An engine on the Intercolonial railway,
while standing at Stolltrton yesterday
attached to a train,exploded and killed
three men and seriously injured a
number of others. The train had jest
hauled up at the station, and the oon- .
doctor and driver were in the office

It is said that journalism in the
oity of New York never before occupied suoh an important position
U it does at the present time. Tho
leading newspapers of that city nre
paying very large dividends, und
tho amounts they spond in management and news-gathering are very
great. We are told that first-class
editors and reporters command salaries twice as large as were possible
ten or fifteen years ago. Managing
editors are getting as high as $12,-
000 a year, and city editors from $3,-
500 to 95,000; while specialists and
first-class reporters are rated from
93,000 to 95,000. Oity correspondents of largo outside papors Aceivo
sometimes as high as 95,000 a year.
The large sums paid by leading
American papers for special services
have greatly astonished journalists
from Europe. Rov. Dr. Parker, the
great London preacher, was much
struck with this during his brief
tour in the United States. Journalism is recognized now not only as
among the most honorable professions, but us one of the most important. Thero is probably no
other power so potent in influencing
public opinion or shaping the character of a nation, and a position of
suoh responsibility ought not to be
occupied by men without special
training or destitute of those qualities which command respect and
confidence.
Not long ago we referred to the
slave trade in which many Chinamen were engaged in this country.
The traffic in female slaves is carried on quite extensively. An instance, whioh is only one in a large
number, occurred lately in San
Francisco, which not only shows the
actual result of this unlawful and
inhuman traffic, but the tricks retorted to for the purpose of deceiving the officials. It has been noticed for some time that a large
number of Chinese girls have been
landed in San Francisco on the plea
of former residence. The readiness
with which these girls answered
questions respecting the oity could
hardly be explained. It was suspected, however, that there was
crookedness somewhere, and the suspicion seems to have been well founded. The laat China steamer brought
to Sin Franoisco an old woman and
three young girls. Among the baggage of the girls were found letters
in Chinese carefully instructing them
how to aet and what answers they
were to give when brought into
court! These letters were seized,
and the girls and their chaperon were
arrested. "When examined the girls
told stories in accordance with the
letters of instructions; but in cross-
examination they utterly broke
down and confessed that the old
woman had bought them as slaves
in Hong Kong for transport to America, One of them had been bought
for 9626,. but the others did not
mow what they cost. The purpose
for which they were imported is
well known. In this province China
girls are bought and sold as slaves
for similar purposes!
A good deal of dissatisfaction
seems to exist in Victoria on account of the manner in' which Sir
Adolphe Caron treated the review
of the local militia at Beacon Hill.
The companies went to considerable
trouble to present the best appearance they could on the occasion, and
as the review had been got up for
the express purpose of entertaining
Sir Adolphe, it was expected he
would take time to make a careful
inspection and say whatever he
could for their encouragement. It
is stated, however, that the minister
of war seemed more anxious to arrive on time at a banquet which
had been prepared for him than to
note the points of excellence presented by the citizen soldiers. After
regarding them briefly with that
"far off" look which is supposed to
have taken in the banquet, he excused himself and left without so
much as a word of encouragement
or advice. It is said he told Col.
Holmes before leaving that he was
very much pleased, and he left the
colonel to convey this morsel of approval to the gallant soldiers secondhand! While Sir Adolphe was hastening to the sapper, the colonel wus
left to close up the review with the
best grace possible under the circumstances; but the men naturally
received the second-hand compliment without exhibiting any degree
of enthusiasm, It is not stated
whether the war minister considered
the appearance and performance of
Victoria's defenders undeserving of
personal complements. It may be
that in bis opinion the public interest would be better served by his
doing justice to the dinner prepared
in his honor than by tarrying on
tht field of military glory. The incident1 seems to us unfortunate. If
the Victoria militia is up to the
standard, it ought to have received
better treatment from the head of
the department, and it is scarcely
pottiUe to suppose that this distinguished Frenchman would permit a
sense of his official duties to be Over
"shadowed by the smell of a ban-
3uet Those who voluntarily unci1*) the drudgery of military drill
for the purpose of preparing thein-
•alves lucoeeafnlly to defend their
country in the hour of peril s'lould
expect to receive encouragement
and sympathy from all, and expnciul-
ly from tho minister whose special
duty it is to maintain the efficiency
of the army. It Sir Adolphe could
not truthfully say that the men
who stood before him on Beacon
Hill wero a credit to the country
and an ornament to his department,
ho may be pardoned for an omission
whicli under other circumstances
could not bo ovcrlookod, and the
waiting banquet may have afforded
him a most convenient plea under
which to escape the embarrassment
of the situation.

heavily in his numerous ventures, hut
thero are few men in Leadvilio who
wouldn't trade even to-day for what
Tairor has got left. "Hull I" ono of
thjii said, "1 wish I wss as near broke
as Tabor is." The losses have not been
without their lesson to the once hielcy
investor. He has stopped indulging in
allsortsof speculations "on sight ami
unseen," as he bought mines in the
c.rriy days, and is devoting himself
largely to the rearing of n young un t
interesting family. He comes to Lead-
villo occasionally for a few days on
burliness, but spends most of his timo in
Denver. His mining property here returns him steadily from $10,000 to $15j-

up all i.lea of splurging as a speculator,
in short, Tulror isuow living his third

Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to

Since that time I have never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and Increase the appetite, more surely than any othor medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.

I know of no remedy equal to Ayer's
Fills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Pills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—

"Treatment by Absorption has for some

Pad.- It costs less than a single prescription and is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal
Medicinal doting. Worn Immediately over
the seat of Disease, its curative properties
become absorbed hy the diseased and enfeebled Organs,conti.-nously and directly,
as required to Insure tn ic'»rn their healthy action and original vigour, li is comfortable to the patient and pleasant in its
effects, and cures when nothing else ean.
The Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A' more valuable
discovery as a true remedy for Kidney
Diseases was never mnde.—Med teal Gazette

This. Association merits the
confidence the PuBlic is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
The Soouruy offered to volley holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, bnt the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, its cash statement show-
lug every Item of income and how expended.
Its position Is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation in which every Item
of liability Is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance in Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeltuble after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon an equitable Tjasis. The profits to one class of
—-"-- holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other olass. which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

not be present in consequence of the

Vancouver civic EImIIou*
The nominations yesterday for mayor and aldermen for Vancouver resulted iu the election by acclamation
uf every candidate proposed for tho
civic honors. It beams rather strange
that Vancouver should havo returned
a solid tioket by acclamation, but tlie
fact remains. The following gentlemen will decorate the council table for
the coming year:   Mayor, David Op-
Eenheimer; aldermen, Lefevre, Brig-
ouse, Humphries, Dougall, Clark
Bell-Irving, Mannion, Alexander, I.
Oppenheimer, Couth. The new aldermen are Messrs. Bell-Irving,Couth,
Dougall and Brighouse.

Capt. Webber says that until satisfactory customs regulations are enforced at Viotoria, the China steamers
will not touch there. Taking into consideration the fact that Capt. Webber
his about the wnole say to the touching of those steamers at Esquimalt, it
might be supposed that ho would receive r.t least tho courtesy due a gentleman.—Vancouver Herald. If thia
threat ia carred into execution, tho
people of Viotoria will have to do
their work over again, beginning with
a champagne supper to Capt. Webber,
and following the uid programme. We
are afraid it will be difficult to bring
over the permanent secretary of the
British postal department, however, at
a dinner.

Laat night aa the council proceedings were about to be commenced a
Norwegian named Carlson entered the
oouncil chambers in a high state of excitement. His face was bleeding in
several places and his whole appear-
anoe indicated a tumbling match with
something oJ somebody. It was some
moments before ho catch his breath,
but as soon as that waa managed hu
addressed himself to the mayor and
wanted to know if Chinamen wero
allowed tn pile boxes on the sidewalk,
on a dark night for people to stumble
over. He pointod out several nasty
wounds as tho result of his encounter
with them and said he thought he was
entitled to some redress. His worship soothed Carlson's wounded feeling! by promising to look into the
matter this morning and being the
offender to justice. The practice of
piling boxes on the sidewalks in front
of stores is too common in this city and
sooner the polico put an end to it, the
better it will bo fur tho citizens in general.      __________

Washington, Doc. 5.—A very large
crowd of visitor* filled thucapitol some
time before noon to-day in anticipation
of tho opening of Ihe 50th congress,
The galleries were full to overflowing
half an hour before noon. Tiro floor
of the house of representatives was
crowded at 11:45 a.ni, when the doorkeeper ordered it to be closed. Clork
Clark called the house to order at
noon, sharp, and immediately after, aa
the roll call was begun, a medium
sized man, about 42 years old, rose in
the midst of the crowd and sang in a
loud, clear baritone, "Praise God from
whom all blessings flow." ltwas impossible for the sergenut-at-arms to
reach tho crank until the d<>xology had
been sung to its end. The singer was
finally taken to the station, where he
was found to be weak-minded. At
the conclusion of tho roll oall, Mr.
Carlisle-was elected speaker. He said
in his speech uf acknowledgment that
one of the most important measures
congress had to consider was a moderate roduetion of the tariff, one that
would protect the workingman against
the effect of financial depression! and
at the same time not deprive him uf
the full rewards of his toil. After the
memben had drawn their seats, a commission was appointed to wait on the
president and inform him that the
house was ready to receive his message.
At 3:25 p.m. the house adjourned.
THE  SENATE.
Tho galleries of the seuuto chamber
were packed by a distinguished au-
dienco half an hour before the taps of
the navel announced tho opening of
the fiftieth congress. At 11:65 a.m.
Mrs. Cleveland, accompanied by Mn.
Folsom and Mrs. Kingsford arrived,
and took seats in the presidential row.
The diplomatic gallery now rapidly
filled with the representatives of the
the various embassies. Mr. Josoph
Chamberlain entered, escorted a strikingly handsome girl. At exactly noon,
the gavel of the president, pro tempore
Iugalls fell, and ho declared tho fiftieth
senate to have entered upon its sessions
in accordance with tho constitution.
After prayer the chairman submitted
to the clerk the credentials of the new
senators. The members were then
sworn iu, including Mr. Turpib
of Indiana, in. whose caso Mr. Hoar
filed a memorial of protest, which was
referred. Mr. Faulker was not allowed to take the oath although granted
theprw.-'egoof the floor, having had
his credentials read. At one o'clock
tho senate adjourned.
Henry Clement, Almonte, writes: "For
a long time I was troubled with chronic
rheumatism, at times wholly disabled; I
tried anything and everything recommended, but failed to get any benefit,
until a gontloman who was cured of rheumatism by Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil,
told me about it. I began using it both
internally and externally, and before two
bottles were used I was radically cured.
We find it a household medicine, and for
croup, burns, cuts and bruises, it has no
equal."

People who Read and Reflect, after
reading, upon the many published testimonials regarding Northrop & Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure,

so positive aud concurrent could not bo
