Editors appear to have made as
good parliamentary candidates in
Ontario as they did in Manitoba.
They were successful In almost every
instance. We mention this faot
with some degree of caution, lest
the journalistic ranks in Winnipeg
should be overcrowded by lawyers
with unsatisfied political ambitions.
—Winnipeg Sun.
The firm of Armour & Co., of
Chicago, slaughtered during the
year 1886 1,101,200 hogs, and during the same time thoy sold of the
various products manufactured and
dealt in by the firm over (50,000,-
000 worth. This is entirely outside
of their immense speculations in
options, etc., on the Board of Trade.
Is there any firm in the United
States that oan show bigger figures!
—Inter-Ocean.

The year that is ending is memorable for two things. One is the
change in English sentiment toward
Irish home rule, and the other is
the labor demonstrations of the
year in this country. For the first
time the Irish demand for home rule
bag been adopted by a great Engliah statesman and party leader.
His action has practically dissolved
the Liberal party, which, before the
change, undoubtedly represented
the general political opinion and
tendency of England, The Liberal
schism is vory significant, "Society,"
the clubs, the great body of distinguished men of all kinds, most of
the chief newspapers and periodicals, have declared against the new
policy, John Bright, a life-long Liberal-leader, has parted with his
friend Gladstone. Lord Tennyson,
verging upon eighty, has sung the
antistrophe of "Locksley Hall," the
burning hymn of his youth to freedom and progress, and laments
democracy and the evil day. The
minister who was called the people's
William, and who, more than any
other, recently seemed to represent
tha conviction und gratify the pride
of the average Englishman, is denounced as an imbecile or a maniac,
a British statesman who closes a
gnat career by seeking the dissolution of the British Empire, an octogenarian madly emulous of "The
aspiring youth who fired the Ephe-
sian dome " No event in English
politics since the repeal of the com
laws has ao deeply excited the country. The spectacular inoident of
the delivery of Mr. Gladstone's
speech in April, and the debate that
followed, was aooceeded by a radical
breach in the Liberal party, the de
feat and resignation of the ministry,
a dissolution of parliament, a short
and earnest campaign, a signal defeat at tke polls, the return of a
large parliamentary majority ot
Tories and Union-Liberals, and a
Tory ministry, after the first place
had been oflered to Lord Hartington, the leader of the Liberal secession. The assembly of parliament
was followed by the hope, rather
than by any reasonable prospect, of
Liberal reunion, i But, as usual
when suoh a breach' occurs, it is
wider and more irreconcilable than
•ver, and the seceding Liberals support, and promise to support, ths
most strenuous measures to restore
order in Ireland. Meanwhile Irish
leaden have adopted a "plan of campaign," a scheme whioh provides for
the payment to agents of the Irish
nationalist league, as trustees, of
that amount of rant which tenants
feel to be a just payment under the
circumstances. This plan is approved
by the Catholic primate of Ireland,
on tbe ground that the landlord and
the tenant an parties to a contract
which, one side may interpret as
legitimately as the other, and that
ths law authorising certain courts
under certain conditions to regulate
rents is a declaration that tlie will
of one party to the contract; is not
to govern, But neither Mr, Gladstone, nor Mr- Parnell, nor the home
rule Liberal press in England, approves the "plan of campaign," and
the arrest of Irish leaders for con
spiraoy to defraud, the disagreement
between them and their English
allies, and the undoubted persistence
of the Irish, portends a Tory policy
of coercion and continued disturbance of the political situation. The
situation, as the year opens, seems
to muke more evident the simple
alternative of a rigorous subjugation, of Inland, or, some form of
home rule.—Harper1! WetMt/.

It is pronounced by the public "one of

President Grevy, of the French
republic, receives a salary of $240,-
000 a year, and is allowed $20,000
for beating and lighting his house,
and his servants; $60,000 for his
entertainments, and $25,000 for the
maintenance of his game preserves.
This' mates a total of $345,000 a
year for Grevy, while the president
of the United States manages* to
worry through on about $50,000.
But the United States has an annual surplus of about $100,000,000,
while France's revenue does not begin to meet htr expenditures.
We understand that a meeting of
the New Westminster Board of
Trade is to be held to-morrow night,
or at an early date, to consider matters relating to the New Westmin-
ater 4 Southern Railway. Would
it not. be.worth while' tor tho board
to take notice again of the foot tliat
no writ has been issued for an election in this distriot to fill the va-
oanoy caused by the death of Mr.
J. A. B. Homorl We have said
already that the delay is likely seriously to jeopardise the interests of
this constituency at a time when,
above aU others, they should be in
the hands of an able representative.
In- tome respects the interests of
' thit district are not identical with
those of some other districts, and
if we have no one in the house to
look' after bur interests we may expect to get left. The inexcusable
delay of the government ought to be
kept before the public until agitation has'accomplished its purpose.
Experience hat suggested the advisability of regarding with suspi
cion the Ottawa political despatches
which come by way of Newport
and Chicago. We suppose there is
no reason why the Ottawa telegram
in our afternoon despatches today
should escape the general distrust.
It may be that a dissolution of the
Dominion government is at hand,
but we are inclined lo doubt it The
best informed politicians in the east;
had concluded that if Ontario went
Liberal at the local elections, there
would be no dissolution until anoth
er session had been held. The Ottawa despatch to New York assumes
that there will be a dissolution, and
indicates that there have been serious disagreements in the cabinet in
consequence of the government having come to such a determination.
It hat been hinted in some quarters
that Sir John is afraid to meet the
house because there ita "skeleton
in the closet," but that) we presume,
is, merely a Grit rumor.
The steady increase in the revenue of Canada's two great railways
—tht Canadian Pacific and the
Grand Trunk—is evidence of in-
craating business in the Dominion.
The Canadian Paoific has all along
bean pursuing a very aggressive polioy, and has secured possession by
purchase or lease of a great many
mat that do not properly belong, to
ita system. The Grand Trunk man
agement hat been conducted on a
similar plan. It picked up a lot of
small toads in eastern Ontario, and
finally gained a monopoly of the
Canadian carrying trade by taking
over its only formidable rival the
Great Western. The O. P. B. hai
control of the Toronto, Grey It
Bruce Railway, tnd is generally
supposed to have the Northern &
Northwestern under iti thumb. It
would pot surprise any one to find
that the 0. P. R. and ttie Grand
Trunk, which virtually control the
carrying trade of the Dominion,
hod amalgamated, but We hope that
event it far distant.
, Thetejwve lieen rumors of « tori-
out nature circulated respecting the
raid which took place recently on
two houses on Blackie tt. It will
bt) remembered that when the houses
were: raided there wat no person
foand within except the female inmates. It is stated that th* keeper! of these houses had received
warning beforehand, and hod, consequently, declined to receive any visitors that evoning. It is further
stW*l 4*t a lawyer called on the
attertoon'before the raid and offered
his services as counsel in defending
the jatet when they came up. If
thesk? rumors nre true, they do not
speak very well for the police or the
ootnrtrittee of the council under
whose directions they were acting.
Under tlw circumttances the raid
wi* tittlt bitter than a farce; and
the hot that no visitors were found
it accepted generally at tuffleient
eWdtnoe that tbe thing bad been
given away. Tho oiroumstances are
such at yo oall lor enquiry and in-
vettigation by Uie police committee,

a (75,000 job of clearing. It was understood that these men were the ad-
vanco guard of a large number of

great dosl of feeling was aroused

crowd of peoplo collected, and a committee waited uu ihe cele.lials at their
camp aud quietly told thom they must
leave by the steamer that day. They
were assisted to the wharf and put on

At a meeting of the Hyack fire company held on Saturday evening S. H.
Webb was nominated for chief and W.
J. Oorbett for assistant engineer.
These were declared duly elected for
the ensuing year.
Tho nominations being closed there
was a call for Mayor Dickinson who on
mounting the platform was received
with loud applause. He thanked the
people of the oity for a renewal of their
confidence in hirn. His re-election he
regarded as an evidence that the actions of the present council were endorsed by the rate-payers and that tlie
latter were satisfied thoy had done their
best for the oity. Ho hoped this year
that all the debentures would be redeemed wben the city would have the
railway without having increased taxa-
ation. There was a great deal of business for tbe next council. Railway
matters had to be 'Settled and tho
building of a uew oity hall considered.
The council would likely nsk tho ratepayers to enable them to raise funds
for tins purposo. The establishment
of a market must also be considered.
He referred to the improvements made
on tho oity by the railwav, the gas,
whicb he believed would in time become ohenper, the prospects of starting the woolen mill, and the expansion
of tho fishing industry. Citizens were
urged to give, the woolen mill a helping
hand. In conclusion he thanked the
people of New Westminster for the
honor again conferred on him and retired amid loud applause.
Coun, Elliott being called for expressed his thanks for bis election to
the council for the 18th year (applause).
He would not give the rnilway company all tlieir own way and as there
was groat dissatisfaction with tho police
court he would go is for remodelling it.
J, O. Armstrong; do yoQ go in for
advertising our sins ana vices everywhere between here and Halifax I I
refer to tho cases ofthoso womon
hauled up the other day.
Coun. Elliott—I believe those women are altogether too publio. Thore
is a police oourt and police force to deal
with this matter which is a difficult
one. I am not one of the polioe committee.
Coun. Shiles spoke a few words to
the meeting. He had served the ci'y
a number of years, and hi. record was
before it. He wuuld continue to support, morally und otherwise, everything he believed in Ihe city's interest.
(Applause.)
D. 8. Ourtis, aspirant for honorrs in
St. Patrick's ward, being called upon
addressed the meeting. Hia motto
had been and would oonlinue to be
progress. He was in favor of selling
the city squares and reducing the city
debt and taxation. He would also reconstruct the police court. (Applause.)
Mr. Reid waa applauded, He would
endeavor to deal intelligently with all
questions coming before the council
and would bo always on the side of
morality, Tho interests of St, Patrick's ward would first receive his attention, altar that those of the cily in
general. ■»
W. 0. Duncan would go ■ for a oity
hall and more attention to St. Andrew's ward than it had boon receiving.
Tlie taxes he thought should be better
collected. There was now some 85000
outstanding and men who should bo
Sresent as voters or candidates were
ebarred by not paying thoir
taxes. Thia wsa not creditable
to either the oity or individuals
and in future there should be
an effort to remedy thia by charging
interest On overdue taxea. The way
matters were at pre.ent was not fair
to those who paid up. He referred
to the booking and filling of one of
tho candidates in his ward, whioh he
thought did not show much stability.
Concluding, he was applauded.
W. H. Burns addressed a few words
to tho rate-payers saying he would do
his best for the ward if elected.
The meeting dispersed with cheers
for Mayor Dickinson.

Sah Frahcibco, Jan. 8.—A boy
whilo strolling through"' Golden flute
Park this p. in. come ncross tho body
of a woman about 50 feet from tho
terminus of Gray st. road. Her face
was badly scratched and disfigured and
a few feet away wns a small revolver
with ono chamber discharged. 'The
body was clothed with a neat apparel
and was that of a woman about 20
yoars of Hgo. Investigation leads to
tlie belief that sho committed suicide
by taking poison and that the bruised
appearance ot her face wus caused by
contortions after sho had fallen to tha
ground. A small bottle found by her
side with a yellowish liquid in it was
judged to be prussie aoid or cyanide of
potassium, both violent poisons. An
autopsy will be made to-morrow. No
bullet wound on her person and the
pistol had not the appearance of having been recently discharged.
Rous, Jan. 10.—Mathilde Man, 18
years of age, and Miss Romaxo, wore

sensational reports that, the infant Isabella, sister of the late King Alfonso,
had been kidnapped or killed. The infant had gone out in a carriago to follow
the royslhantsmen In Praedo. She occupied her carriage alone, and was escorted by three aidos. In a remote part
of the great park ; tho carnage
broto down, throwing the infant into the ditch. She was
not hurt, although it wub found she was.
It was deemed prudent for her to remain
at the scene of the accident until assistance could be procured, and fur this a
lackey was dispatched. Much timo was
lost in thi., and in the meantime the
huntsmen Imd gone on a great distance
hefore they missed their royal mistress,
and whon they discovered she was no
longer with thein, became greatly frightened. They started a general alarm,
aud began a noisy search. Tho prolong,
ed absence of tho Infant from the castle
caused uneasiness there, aud finally the
polioe aud troops were sent out ill search
of her.

She positively refused to partake of
any food, and after 14 days of fasting
the work house officials sent her to the
hospital. There it wss the same way,
and she refused to eat or talk, and it
wsafbehaved her reason was dethroned.
Lsst rrlght she told her sad story, and
said nobody will have cause to regret
her death, as she had not a relative in
the world. She further stated that she
had starved himself to death.
KarnoH, Jan. 8.—It is stated that
the Russian govtrnment has made
proposals whioh are calculated to peacefully solve tlie Bulgarian difficulty.
Pitta Alexander of Battenburg, who
intends to make an extended tour in

rumors regarding his alleged purpose
of returning to Bulgaria, will start for
Egypt in a fortnight.
A strike of 30,000 miners in north
Cumberland jb o King to a dispute about
wages.  :
.Pshladslmha, Jan. 8,—The search
to-day of a house where the two old
miners, Joseph Perry and Richard
Price were found lying dead yesterday
brought tb light a large amount of hidden treasure. Berry was the one who
owned all the riches. He retired from
a firm of auctioneers several years ago
with independent means, and took
Price who waa his cousin and companion. They scarcely allowed themselves
the necessaries of life. ■ In an undertaking establishment the bodies lay
to-day ghastly in death. Their appearance waa revolting and showed a
frightful condition of personal neglect.
This afternoon a coroner's messenger
with three distant relatives of Perry
and* lawyer began a search of the
filthy fid house. They began in the
swond story, front room, and before
they proceeded far the hunt had unearthed substantial evidence of hidden
wealth. Uver 12000 in coin and bank
notes were found.   In addition great
Eiles of paper brought out of old musty
oxes contained deeds to property,
mortgages, bank books, insurance
policies, ground rents and other valuable documents.
Noeioli, Jan. 8.—One of the most
disastrous shipwrecks which ever occurred on the Virginia coast happened
this morning near. little Island life-
aavinj station. Not less than 20 and
possiHymore lives were lost, among
them 8 life-saving men, who, in the
discharge of their duty were drowned.
The morning fas bitterly cold, a snowstorm prevailed and it. was blowing
hard. | During a lull in the storm lif o-
sa'ving patrol From Little Island station
sighted a large ship stranded on the
bar about 900 yards from shore.
Rockets were fired to notify the crew
of the vessel that she had been aeen.
The most expert boatmen ofthe station
manned the boats and in a moment
were breaking the furious waves.
They reached uie ship in safety and
four of the ship's crew were-taken in
the lite-boat anil ten in the ship's boat
which, iras launched for the purpose.
The Wo boats were making good headway for the shore when a wave of great
power struck them, capsizing them
instantly and pitching their 22 occupants out: The drowning men were
carried southward by the sea and some
of them were washed ashore. As they
came within reach they were picked
Band endeavors were made to reive them and in two instances with
success. The vessel is the German
ship Elisabeth, Capt Halnordst, from
Hamburg to Baltimore and not oneof
the crew survives the wreck. Her
cargo is unknown ss the high seas have
thus far prevented any attempt to
reach her.
Biblih, Jan, 8.—Printed copies of
the amended amy bill will be distributed in' lie Beichstag on Monday.
The debate on the second reading of
the measure, on Tuesday promises to be
a stormy one. Prinoe Bismarck has
announced his intention of remaining
iavSerlia until the fate ei the bill shsll
ten. decided   in .government
 Leas confidence is felt ss to
the passage of the bill and there are
indications that Prince Bismarck is
open to compromise. It is believed he
would accept an amendment limiting
the operatMsui of the bill to live years,
but he wjPettaink rejeot the proposal foe i—tm ot three years and will
immediately dissolve the Reichstag if
that body presists in thus amending
dn btn.
The government relies upon ths
fean of a dissolution for influencing
the members of theoentre and progressist parties, aa one ol the results
of in election would probably be a reduction in their numbers. The temper displayed by Iho clerical members
of th* commission toward the olose of
ths debate showed no symptoms of
a itrnM^tSMitSost. Herr Wind-
hunt, clerical leaaer, had a .harp interchange of word, with Gen. Von
tJohelltadorf on remark, by  th.  fur
allTiaoe wlfli Austria snd Rout, while
she was msnaoed nowhere. Gen. Von

s
by voting for it again. Herr Wind-
thurst responded angrily that the
reichstag would make no concession
beyond what the commission recommend, even if menaced with a coup
d'etat. Further soreness was caused
by Gen. Von Sonellendorf 's refusal to
state or discuss what financial resources the government rolied on to
cover the extra expenditure. On the
whole the prospects are unfavorable to
the government.

The Snow Sheds.
CUCIERS OVER JM FEET IN 0EPTH.
A correspondent writing from the
mountains stives the following particulars of the snow sheds and slides. He
says: As it may be of interest lo your
readers to know how muoh limber it
takes to build cue of these snowsheda
per mile, I herewith give detaila: It
takes over 0,451,800 feet of timber
and 02,080 bolts 30 in. long, and 200,-
000 spikes 10 in. long. I do not refer to
the ordinary snowsheds such aS used
ou the Intercolonial railway; these are
used here also where snow is likely
to drift in, but in speaking above I refer to what might more properly be
called snowslides. They are built at
a point whero snowslides are apt to
ocour, always in the face of high and
steep mountains. The high side of
the shed is built up into the side of.
the mountain and has a slant over the
traok something- like a Bhed roof.
They are wonderfully strong, nnd you
may be suro none too much
so, as the accumulated enow of  many
{rears may start from the top of these
ofty hills and coiuo thundering down
in masses 60 or 100 to 200 feet thick,
with a force that nothing can resist
unless it is the mountain on the other
side of the volley from which tho slide
takes plsce. The snow in passing
down slides over the top of the snow-
shed and passes on down into the valley and on up, may be' several huu-
dred feet up the side of the mountain
opposite. One can imagine whst
would be the result of such a slide
striking a passing train. Certainly
nothing but pieces of 'the smashed-up
wreck would ever be found. Near
where I am one of these slides happened.   Tbe snow came
DOWN THE MOUNTAIN
ina body estimated to be 175 feet
thick. It struck the track and carried
it bodily down the mountain Io the
valley, across the river lhat flowed
through the valley, and up the opposite side to about the same height. It
was where the railway track was found
after the snow melted, and where it
waa struck. Seme cars were wrecked
at the same time, and were never
found. Probably the remains were
carried down by the melting snow to
the Columbia river, and then out to
the Paoific ocean. The location here
is a very beautiful one. A photographer is now out among tho mountains taking views. I send vou one
whioh will five you a very fair idea of
what the plaoe looks like. Tho mountain that you see to the left is over
5,000 feet high from the railway track.
The white spot between the higher
and lower peaks is snow, and lies in
that hollow plsce all the year around,
and that snow is supposed to be 250
feet deep, and is a glacier. It is full
of numerous cracks. The men have
dropped lines down some of these
cracks for over 100 feet without strik
ihg bottom. The sharp, high peak on
ths picture is rough and rogged and
difficult to climb' Thers was a rain-
cloud floated up against this peak
once snd hurst, let ting out a flood of
water that
BROUGHT EVERYTHING  DOWN
the mountains with it, Enormous
rocks and trees were apparently no
obstruction whatever. The course of
the water made a clean sweep, and the
peak ia easily seen yot. As it came
down the rooks and trees that it bore
would sometimes lodge in narrow
places on the sides of the mountain
and be piled up 120 or 200 feet high,
but the weight of water bohind would
soon be so great that tho dam would
give way, and down would come the
water again, and rooks, trees, eto.,und
so it kept on until it reached therirer,
whioh was raised by this flood unlit
the water stood 20 feet over the track.
There are some very interesting
things up here, and one need not get
very lonesnmo if hs has any taste lor
curious nsture, A little way from
here are soda springs and hot springs,
so you can hare both a plain soda and
a hot bath, one or both ss you choose,
and no thanks to anyone. Soda plain,
however No liquor is allowed up
here, which is a good thing, where ao
many and auoh different kinds of men
are employed away from sll law and
order. I have been up to the Roumanian, Bulgarian, and Thuringian
mountains, but the mountains here, I
think, are much grander. It is not
possible to picture them.—Times.
