The Libers)! organs of Ontario are
justly ,pj(o)id of the M that of the
flftjr-etgit mtrabers of the local
assembly elected to1' support Mr,
MoW'egotemment, no fewer than
thirty are temperance men; of the
liberals in the Toronto oity counoil,
thirteen out of nineteen are tern,
perance supporters. The temperance element emong ihe Liberals jn
the. Ottawa! parliament is quite as
strong.. The trouble is that the
leader of the Liberal party has not
the courage of the convictions of
his party pn this great moral ques
tion, whioh has also become a political issue in Canada. — Montreal
Witness.
It will be an interesting fight in
West Durham- when Sir Charles
Tupper faces Mr. Edward Blake.
At present Sir Charles is without a
seat, being Canadian commissioner
in London. Doubtless he could get
one in Nova Scotia had he not long
since recognised the faot that the
leader of a party must be an Ontario man, and it is to the leadership of the Conservative party tliat
Sir diaries aspires. He was promised this position four years ago,
but Sir John, like all men of advanced years, is fond of the exercise of power and is loth to lay
down the baton. We may be sure
that this time Sir Charles will look
out for himself. At the last election in West Durham Mr. Blake had
a majority of 118 over, Mr. Bunting,
so the Conservatives entertain the
hope that Sir Charles will bo able
to convert the minority into a majority, which only means the changing of 60 votes. There is this fact
to be kept in mind, however, that
Mr. Blake standi higher in the estimation of the people of Canada
than he ever did before. For even
the Northumberland war hone to
"beard the lion in his den, the
Douglas in his hall" would be a
courageous thing. Sir Charles will
be a useful man in the coming campaign. The present ministers, while
gootl departmental men, will not set
the world on fire. Like the men
on the London press, "none nf
them nro nine feet high."—Toronto
Telegram.
The growers of opium in India
are much alarmed over the rapid
deerease in their exports to China.
The poppy fields of the flowery
kingdom are driving the foreign
product from the market. There is
a law in China forbidding opium
raising, but it has been a dead letter ever since England, simply because she was deriving an annual
income of 16,000,000 from the tax
on Indian opium, forced China to
reopen her markets to the drug.
Opium growing for several years
put has been rapidly increasing in
China. About one-third of tho cultivated land in Yunnan is now devoted to poppy raising. Travelers
describe the valleys ot southwestern
China as white with poppy blossoms.
China is now raising about two-
thirds of all the opium she consumes.
Other foreign opium it coming into
competition with the Indian product. The Mozambique opium company is patting 50,000 aores of land
in the lower Zambesi valley into
opium, and the African product is
already selling in the Shanghai
market. Meanwhile the curse of
opium smoking weighs more heavily
every year upon the people of China.
One-fifth of the population of Pekin
and Tientsin are opium smokers. It
is said that 3,000 of the attaches of
the imperial palace are viotimsof
the terrible habit in spite of the
fact that tbe Ohinese government
discourages the practice. There are
a number of native anti-opium societies, whioh are doing a work in
China similar to that of our temperance unions here The govern:
ment has also established a large
number of refuges, where victims of
the opium habit may go for treatment. Sedatives, stimulants, and
tonics are administered to cure them
of the vioe. Great Britain herself
is likely soon to suffer some of the
evils with which she has helped to
curie China. In parts of India the
opium habit is making alarming pro-
grew among the natives. The Mar-
S|uis Tseng- called attention to this
aet (ri a letter to the anti-opium
society of England the other day.
He added that if Great Britain
would put a stop to the exportation
of opium from India, China would
effectually stop the growing of opium
within Her territories, He said
China was willing to co-operate with
Great Britain in striking nt the
root of the evil.—AT. Y. Sun.

The Coming Contest.
Candidates for tho commons are
thiol; .as hops about Victoria, and if
half of them are elected it will ho
necessary greatly to increase the
seat jng capacity as well as the paying oapaeity of the house. Among
the new aspirants for honors in this
direction are Capt. Jno. Irving,
Mayor fell, S. Duok, Amor DeCosmos, T. B. Humphries, Cornelius
Booth, and Dr. Milne. We have
heard of no new developments in
this constituency, but if the four
candidates who are now in the field
enter the contest it would not be
difficult to predict the result. It is
to be hoped some better arrangement may be brought about before
the day 'of nomination. Now is
the time when New Westminster
district ought to send to parliament
its very best man, for it has interests at stake which cannot with
safety be left to inexperienced or
untrustworthy hands. A mistake
made now may be fatal and irretrievable.
San Francisco Coinage.
Coiner Gorhani, of the San Francisco mint, reports a coinage of $2,-
090,000 during thc month of December, 1886, ns follows: gold, $1,-
940,000; silver, $150,000. The
total coinage during the year amounted to $25,360,006, made up as follows: gold, $24,600,000, and silver,
$750,000; being an increase of $2,-
138,000 over 1885. The total coinage since the orgnization of the
mint in 1854 has been $802,087,-
799. The receipts of treasure at
Wells, Fargo it Co.'s express office
for the same time were $35,254,471,
obtained from the following sources:
From the interior, $30,791,226;
from the north coast, $3,016,531;
from Mexico (west coast), $,446,-
7U; total, $35,254,471. Tlie
amount from Mexico includes only
that by water. The receipts overland from Mexico were much larger.
The descriptions embraced in the
above "total were as follows: Coin,
$20,841,865; silver bullion, $9,433,-
751; gold bullion and dust, $4,978,-
855; total, $35,254,471.
About those Telegrams.
Our Church-street cotemporary
this morning actually claims credit
for having received a? genuine and
bona fide telegraphic despatch announcing the coming dissolution of
the Dominion house and fixing the
date of the general elections. Our
cotemporary likewise accuses "Mr.
John Robson's paper" (by which,
apparently, be means the Columiuan) of pronouncing the telegram
a fraud. Our cotemporary is entirely' mistaken, and states what is
not true.' It was the Victoria Colonist that pronounced the telegram
a canard. The Columbian regarded
it as of no importance whatever,
and pronounced no opinion on it at
all. When our Church street cotemporary claims accuracy for the telegram, however, he goes again beyond the truth. The tcl"gram of
our cotemporary waa dated at New
York, on the 7th inst., and read as
follows: "It is now fully decided to
dissolve the existing parliament
immediately. The elections throughout the Dominion have been fixed
for 9th February." If wo had pronounced this telegram a fraud, we
should certainly hnve been justified
in so doing. As will lie seen from
the despatch published in the Columbian of yesterday, and in the
Victoria papers of Monday afternoon'and yosterday, the government
liad hot decided on immediate dissolution until the 15th, eight days
after the date of our cotemporary's
despatch, nnd instead of Feb. Oth
being fixed upon as election dny,
nominations have been fixed for the
15th, and polling for the 22nd. On
the 10th inst, there appeared among
our regular press telegrams a des
patch from New York indicating
the probability of a dissolution and
general election very soon, but there
waa no date fixed for either. The
foot ii no date could be given for
the ample reason that dissolution
had not then been decided on, and
no dat* bad been set for the (lections.
We have no objection to our esteemed cotemporary's special des
patches aa • source of amusement,
but it cannot ba claimed that they
are worthy of the least credence.

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR IR87.
T
HE AIM OF " GRIP" Ifl to sot forth, In
___ In an Impartial and Indepemiont manner, ihe passing events o« Cunadlan political and social life. Ils Cartoons sp-jak
more definitely ami inoro pleasingly than
whole columns nf editorial. In this pungent, etills appreciable, and artistic stylo
of prcsc-n I Lik a subject, the whole sltuu-
tio i is revealed at v dunce. The success
of Grip shows how welt this fact In appreciated—Its Cartoons on tho pnsslng political events of the country being even
more eagerly sought after than tho chaste
and humorous letter-press of tho paper,—
though the latter i*> equal to thnt of nuy
slmllur publication on the continent.
Tho publishers of Grin arc making ex
tensive Improvements for 1886. The old
cover Is to be discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper,—every number being so artistically
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papers on tho continent. The
advts. will be compressed nnd more systematically arranged; while similnr Improvements will be mnde as to the letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title page; while thd Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
Improvements In the artistic department.
Tlto price of Grip will licrenfter ho £2 a

pnper of IU kind tn America,—most of
them selling fpr 85. Single numbers of
Grip*lll be 10 conts.

"We, the congregation of Erskine

deep regret we experience in having to

of His own Church, who in His love

hu in His providence given indication
both to you and to us that it is His
will that you should labor henceforward in another portion of His vineyard; we bow in submission to His

This Afternoon's Despatches.
Firm. De Hpnlrlim.
Piubbitbu. Jan. '10.—Tho baggage
car attached to the Kew York limited
express, whieh arrived here last night,
was almost blown tu pieces by dynamite or some other terrible explosive
a few milea east of Altoona, Pa. Baggage-master Harry Mingus, who was
in the car at the time, was badly hurt.
A trunk waa put on the train at Duncan, near Harrisburg, aud was checked
through to Pittsburg, While Mingus
was arranging the trunks in the car,
he picked up a small ordinary trunk
and threw it on tlio top of some other
baggage. Immediately nn explosion-
followed which lifted tlio top of the
car as though it was made of paper and
scattered tne fragments in all directions. The shock was terrible and
startled the engineer and train men.
It also attracted the attention of the
passengers and when it was found that
the baggage car had been almost blown
to pieces the greatest excitement prevailed. The train was Btopped and
the baggage transferred to another car.
Mingus was seriously injured, but will
recover. A brakeman who was in tho
car at the time escaped by being
thrOWn behind a stack of trunks. Tho
damaged car was side-tracked and then
the train proceeded on its way.' The
Penna railroad officials have determined tojsift tho matter to the bottom. The
owner of the trunk was arrested when
he presented his check for the trunk
at the baggage room this morning.
He said that lie was a Hungarian coal
miner; that his name was John Kag-
man; that he came from Hazelton in
search of work and strenuously denied
that there was any explosive iu tke
trunk. It contained, he claimed,
nothing but clothing with some
matches. It was ordered that, pending the investigation, he should be detained.
Chicago, Jan. 10.—Sheriff Matson
declares that he will not permit the
marriage of the condemned anarchist
Spies and Miss Vaozondt to occur as
long as Spies remains under condemnation,
Lokdon, Jan. 10.—The hall on Princess
streot where the fatal panic occurred
last night, was a favorite resort for Jews.
Entertainments had been .given there
every night for a long time past. Last
evoning a benefit performance was given
and the place was crowded. During the
progress of the play a man and a woman
quarrelled on the street outside and uear
tlie main doorway of the ball. The man
used violence, and the woman screamed.
Her ery was heard bv passeri-by who
misunderstood it and shouted fire. The
woman's screams and cries of fire were
Immediately heard inside, which at once
created a panic. The audience, numbering 600, instantly in a body rushed pell
moll for the main entrance. Strong men
attempted to pass them and women and
children fell at the doorway as stumbling
blocks. They tripped up others who
were crushed down by the rushing frantic
crowd, It took but a few minutes to
empty the house. The alarm was so
thorough that not a soul among tbe entire audience refrained from struggling.
When the people, after reaehing the
streets, ascertained the facts of the situation, a icene of great disorder of another
kind ensued, caused by the discovery
that a number were missing, They
then rushed baok but wero stopped
at the main entrance by police who had
arrived,. Seventeen corpses were found
inside the theatre near the door,
They wero all torn, crushed and disfigured. It was fonnd that of the dead 12
were women, three were boys, one was
a girl, and the others men. The audience was almost entirely composed of
Jews. The manager of the Hebrew
Dramatic Club was on the stage when
tho psnle began. He perceived at onee
there was no good reason for it, and did
all in hte power to allay tho excitement
and to afford all possible facilities for escape. The ball hu a number of entrances, and he had them all thrown
wide open and called oh the people when
they would not remaiu to divide and use
all the doorways; but they paid no at*
tention to him. Tue whole crowd with
ono impulse made for the main on*
trance.

Proof nf PfNlk.
From the Montreal Star.
There is every likelihood of litigation concerning the payment of the
policies of assurance held on the life
of the late Mr. J. S. McLaohlan. One
company, the Sun Life, hns paid its
jtolicies, but it is stated the others resist payment. It may be that the
matter will bo amicably settled, but
sueh is not tho present appearance.
There was, as hus been stated, a total
of $42,130.70  insurance on his life,
Iilaced ns follows: In the Sun Life, on
lis life $7000, with n bonus of $130.-
70, and nn accident policy iu the same
company for $10,000, making a total
of $17,130.70. Of the accident policy
for $10,000, $5000 of it was reinsured
with the Cltixona' insurance Company.
Tho Sun Lifo has paid the $17,130.70
to thu heirs. Tho Citizens refuse to
pay tho Sun Lifo, nnd the latter company will outer suit. The Sun Life
on paying tho claim tn the McLaohlan
heirs, took from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurauce witli 0 per cent, interest
compounded yearly should Hv. J. S.
MoLacIiIhii evor turn up alive. The
other insurances were $11,000 in London and Lancashire Life Co., $2000 iu
the Mtwt Life, $2000 iu the Dominion
Safetv Fund nud a partnership policy
for $10,000 iu the Accident Company
of North America. There was a personal accident policy in the latter company, and when J, S. McLaohlan left
Montreal some time ago, the unearned
portion of the premium was returned
and the policy cancelled. The partnership policy for $10,000 is contested by
tho North America Company on the
ground that Mr. J. S. McLachlan was
not a registered partner at the time of
Iub death. The partnership policy
was on tho lives of the Messrs. Mc-
Lachlnns, Mr. Radford und Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. In caso of death by
accident of nny of them the policy was
payable to the survivors. When Mr.
Brophy retired from the business his
name was removed from the policy and
another put in Hisplace bti the company,
who never ivan and in not now a partner.
While the Sun Life lias paid its policies, the others liave expressed tlie desire to receivo more satisfactory proofs
of death than have been furnished
tliem. The Citizens' Insurauce Com*
pany claims, first, tliat they were not
notified of a desire for renewal, and
second, tlmt the premium for the second year, which began in August lust,
has not yet been paid. The policy of
tho Mtixn calls for tho production of
tho body. Mr. W. McLachlan has
written a letter to Mr. Macaulay, of
the Sun Life, certifying to the honorable aud liberal manner in which that
company has acted with regard to the
claim, [J. O. McLeod, is agent for

The Confederation Lire.
The annual report of this solidly pros*
fierous Canadian institution will be found
n another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and tho Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which tlie Company haa declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuriug business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of be*
tween 17 and 18 per cent. A point at*
testing the soundness of tbe finances of
the Company ia thc fact that tbe interest
income, is sufficient to pay tho death
claims—which In a company cf the ago of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The nss ts and liabilities are
sot forth in minute detail, and tbe tables
show that, after mnking allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of (282,190
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in the last year
was 9260,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true polioy of
thc Company, viz:---"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."

White Broszk Monuments.—White
Bronzo is a comparatively new substance,
and has come* into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It hu
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn.} Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa v and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has bean fouud that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronzo being non*
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but does not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze Is indistructible by
the elements; It cannot be dissolved by
water, and. air cannot penetrate It, although tho film Is so thin as to Ite immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can tako place. '-Boston Journal of Com*

The Fishery Question.
Washington, Jan. 10.—Secretary
Manning to-day transmitted to the
house a reply to the resolution of the
14th of December, making inquiry in
regard to the interpretation now given
by the, treasury department ■ of the
Tariff Acta as far as thoy apply to the
importation of fresh fish. The secretary's reply makes a pamphlet of nearly one hundred pages, in which he
gives all the correspondence aud decisions of the department in relation
to this important subject. The point
which perplexes the customs'officers is
that the tariff Act of 1884 takes tish nt
our sea ports, our lake porta, and ou
the frontier by these words in the section for ''provisions;"
"Mackerel, one cent per pound;
herrings, pickled or salted, one-half of
one cent per pound; salmon, pickled,
one cent per pound; other fish, pickled
in barrels, one cent per pound; foreign-
caught fish, imported otherwise tlian
in barrels or half-barrels, whether
fresh, smoked, dried, salted, or pickled, not specially enumerated or provided for in this act, fifty cents per
hundred pounds."
A subsequent section declared that
the following articles, when imported,
shall be exempted from duty:—
"Fish, fresh, for immediate consumption; fish, for bait; oil, spermaceti, whale and other fish oils of American fisheries, and all other articles the
product of tuch fisheries, shrimps, or
other shellfish, lish sounds, or fish
bladders."
Concerning this section of the act he
says:—
"This fish clause of the tariff law
affords a pertinent illustration of the
need there is of revising our taxing
legislation. The draughtsman of a
great many of ita sections, apparently
unable .to set down clearly hit purpose,
and his own idea of the method of executing, lias thrown upon tho appraising or collecting oflicers the work of
ascertaining the intentions of importers, or the uses to which merchandise
can be, or may be, thereafter put,
which these officers are unable to perform in any reasonable time or in any
satisfactory way. To appraising and
collecting work in practical administration there is a limit which our present
law too frequently ignores, and then
customs' officers are unjustly criticised
or condemned for net doing such work
properly."
He shows in the appendices that the
efforts to discover and execute the intentions of tlie law-makors have been
entirely unsatisfactory, erer since the
act ot 1870 was passed, which admitted
free of duty, "fish) fresh, for immediate consumption."
Ht reviews the negotiations for
closer commercial relations and the
opening of the ports of the United
States to British vessels and of the
British colonial ports to American vessels, which have progressed during the
century, and deduces therefrom the
fact that a freer commercial intercourse
hss been of enormous benefit to both
countries aud says:—
"It is to be regretted that the British North American provinces impede
and impair the full fruition of this
beneficent system of international intercourse and transportation by unworthy and petty spite in their ports
against American deep sea fishermen.
During the past summer, while American vessels, regularly documented,
have been excluded from the hospitality and privileges of trading in
Canadian ports, Canadian fiBliing
vessels have beon permitted, freely, to
enter and •• use American ports along
the Ntw England coasts, nave been
protected by this department in such
entry and use, and have not been required to pay any other fees, charges,
taxes, or dues than have been imposed
upon the vessels of other governments
similarly situated. The hospitality
elsewhere and generally extended iu
Britiih ports to American commercial
vetsesi has not bten less in quality or
quantity, as I am informed, than the
hospitality extended to Britisli vessels
in American ports. But thero is this
marked difference, that while this department protects Canadian fishermen
in the ate of American porta tht Dominion of Canada brutally excludes
American fishermen from Canadian

Confession   Arter  Acquittal.
DRAMATIC 8GENE IH A MISSOURI COURT.
The career of Charles Foulk, alias
Charle Watson, the gentleman gambler
who was shot and killed at Hot
Springs by a negio policeman a short
timo ago, waB an eventful one. He
was tall and handsome, cool as an
icicle,, dressed in exquisite taste, and
his manner and conversation were
every inch the elegant, refined gentleman. His friends never wearied of
lauding his bravory, and his enemies
did not gsinaay them.
As an instance of his great nerve, a
sporting resident of Kansas City tells
a reporter of the Times the following
narrative: " Some years ago a soldier was found with a bullet in his
heart on a bridgo near Carlisle. He
was of gambling propensities, and an
avowed enemy of Foulk. The lattor,
with another gambler, was charged
with the crime and placed on trial.
The men were given separate trials
and Foulk was tried first and acquitted
on an undoubted alibi. By the way,
Foulk was a firm believer in the
Tony Weller doctrine, and in all the
scrapes in which he was concerned he
never failed to prove an alibi. The
evidence in the trial of Foulk's sup
poaed accomplice was damaging to the
prisoner at the bar. Ono lady, who
lived near the scene of the shooting,
identified the prisoner and sworo that
she heard a pistol shot, ran to the
door, and saw him running- halloas
from the scene of tho murder. She
was certain that it was the accused
man, because there was a lighted gas
lamp near her door which enabled her
to get a good view of hia features.
Other evidence equaily strong was introduced by the state, and a conviction
seemed assured.
" When the dofense opened no ono
believed that the caso made by the
state could be shaken. Fyulk was the
first witness for the defense, and aa it
waa well-known that he was to testify,
the court-room was crowded to suffocation. As he was sworn and took the
stand there was a perfect quiet.
Everyone had an idea that there was
something coming, but no one waB
prepared for what happened. As
Foulk took hia seat on tbe witness-
stand he turned to the stern, gray
haired judge, and in a clear, calm
voice that could he heard in every
part of tho room, said:
'"Judgo, before I testify in this
case T want to ask you a question.
Can I evor be tried again for the killing of that soldier?"
" For a moment the silence waa almost painful. People in the rear of
the room placed their hands back of
their heads in order to hear better,hut
no ons but the venerable judge seemed
to guosa what waa coming. He evidently did, for he replied, in aolemn,
severe tones, that were rendered all
the moro impressive by the deathly
stillness.
"So far aa'human law is concerned,
you are a free man. No earthly tribunal can try you agaiu- For any part
you may have taken iu this murder,
you will have to answer only to the
great Judgo before whom we must all
be arraigned. Between you and your
Maker this case now rests.'
" I heard theae words, and I shall
never forget thom. Foulk was Iho
only person in the room who was not
affected. As coolly as if t .Using to a
circle of friends, ho replied:
" 'Thank you, judge; you are a man
of honor and know tho law, nntl I believe you. I wish to solemnly swear,
then, that I killed that Boldier. You
have acquitted the wrong man.1
" The effect of this cool, deliberate
statement, made in a voioe that never
trembled and could be heard in every
corner of the court-room, may bo imagined. At once the silence was bro.
ken by exclamations of surprise and
indignation, whioh, however, were
quickly suppressed by the judge.
Then, aa coolly as ho had made the
confession, Foulk told the story of the
murder. He said that as he was
crossing the bridge he met the soldier
going in an opposite diroetion. They
wero old enemies and had recently
had a quarrel over the greeti cloth.
Foulk aaid that as soon as Ihe soldier
saw him he drew his saber and started
for him. ' Not wishing to kill him,'
Foulk continued,' I drew a little old-
fashioned pepper-box revolver and
shot at him four times, but as he still
kept coming at ine I jumpod off the
bridgo, drew my forty five and killed
him. I did it in self-defense. If I
had not killed him he would have
killed me.'
' 'The evidence uf the lady who swore
that she saw the prisoner at the bar
running hntless past her door was
easily explained, and furnishes another
evidence of Foulk's wonderful nervo.
When he jumped off the bridge his
hat fell off nnd floated down the
stream. When the soldier fell Foulk
ran up the stroet, but did not see the
lady standing at the door. When ho
had gone a little way he remembered
that his name was written in his hat,
and that if it was found it would be
used as evidence against him. Waiting for a inomont, nnd sooing that no
ono had heen attracted by the shots,
he deliberately returned to the scene
of the shooting, waded down the
stream, found his hat, and went up
town through nn alloy. That was
nerve. The lady was honest in hur
testimony, but sho was simply mistaken, as was afterward proved conclusively. Of course the defendant
was discharged. As to Foulk's alibi
--well, he could always get an alibt
when he wanted ono. His story of
tho killing was afterward proved to be
exactly correot. Altogether the scone
in the court room was a very dramatic
one, nnd I doubt if it has ever boon
equalled.
"After this episode Foulk lived the
life of a roving gambler, visiting almost
every great oity in the Wast."—Kansas City Times.
