If anv of oar cotemporaries who
have libel suits on hand contemplate making an apology, and have
not a suitable form at hand, we commend to them the following which
lately appeared in a Cape Colony
paper: "I, the undersigned, retract
hereby everything I have said
against the innocent Mr. G, P.
Bezrjidenhout, calling myself an infamous liar, and striking my mouth,
with the exclamation, 'You mendacious mouth, why do you lie- boI'1
I declare further that I know nothing against the character of Mr. 0.
P. Bezuidenhout. I call myself k
genuine liar of the first-class."
Mr. Simeon Jones, commissioner
to the West Indies, the Argentine
Republic, and other South American
countries, has been to Ottawa, and
received his instructions: His mission apparently involves the ques
tion of steamboat connection between Oanada and Bio Janeiro, and
Buenos Ayres, the principal ports of
Brazil and the Argentine Republic.
The Argentine Republic offered to
give $100,000 to any steamship
company that would establish a connection between that country and
the United States; and as the proposal was declined by the latter, it
might possibly be made to Oanada.
The Argentine Republic is an im-
portor of the products of the forest,
some of which we send there now,
and we may find there a market for
others.—Monetary Times.
The present session of the provincial legislature, which opened at
Victoria yesterday, should be taken
advantage of to press upon the attention of the government and the
house the importance of legislation
regarding certain necessary reforms.
The system of management now pur-
sued in relation to liquor licenses
and road construction, should be re-
moddled in conformity with the rapid
progress of the province in other respects. There are practically no
laws or regulations affecting the
liquor traffic, which in many sections
of the country results in a disgraceful state of affairs, and ia a sad reflection upon the people of British
Columbia. In this respect it is
generally admitted that the province
lags far behind every other portion
of the whole Dominion. Public
opinion is in favor of regulations
largely in the direction of the admirable system existing in Ontario,
known as the Crook's Act, or the
ably drafted McCarthy Act.—Kamloops Sentinel
After many years of experiment
ing, with the ohject of increasing the
speed of vessels and lessening their
draught by a change in the formation of the hull, a Pennsylvania inventor has succeeded in constructing
a boat which he claims fulfils the
desiderata solongsought,and is in entire accordance with true scientific
theory. This boat, which is some
36 feet long, is of the shape known
as the concave bottom, the hull being
built in a right and left hand spiral
form from the bow to the middle
section. The conformation of the
hull in this case is such as to displace water in a manner closely approximating to the wave-line
theory, beginning at the cutwater,
the displacement being accomplished
gradually until the oenter of the
boat is reached, when the reverse
action of displacement begins; the
concave begins where the convex
ends, The greater the speed the
greater the lifting power, the boat
rising on the water, and consequently moving with greater speed without any increase of power.
Whistling is the craze with New
York girls. Mrs. Shaw is the cham
pion whistler just now, and she has
scores of unsuccessful imitations.
Mrs. Shaw's flute-like notes are de
scribed ns simply phenomenal com
pared to the average young lady's,
and those who expect to emulate
her successfully must in the first
placebo assisted by natural aptitudi*.
Some years ago it was a rare thing
to hear a young lady whistling, but
now every household has a young
daughter that goes about the houso
trying to imitate the birds. There
was a time when it was considered
vory unrefined for a young lady to
wliistlo, and the mother always
chided her by repeating tbe very
trite lines about a whistling woman
and a crowing hen never coming to
a good end. All that is changed
now and the mother and father are
just as proud bf their daughters'
whistling accomplishments as they
used to be of their skill as musicians.
The mandolin, guitar and banjo for
the present are relegated to the back
stairs of unpopularity to make
room for the new craze.'

THE FREEDOM OF THE OUT.
Dublin, Feb. 3.—Lord Ripon and
Hr. Morley were presented with Uie
freedom of the city of Limerick'to-daf
and were tha recipients of numerous
addresses. Mr. Morley in his reply to
the,address said that the government
would not extend local government to
Ireland because it aaid that to decentralize was to nationalize.
EUROPEAN   FINANCIAL   AFFAIRS   IN   A
■    |        DEPRESSED   CONDITION.
London, Feb. 3.—The markets of
London and tho continent are depressed in a marked degroe by the influence
of the report that Russia has succeeded
in placing a loan in Paris and Amsterdam, to the-continued menace of the
peace of Europe furnished by the
changing relations of the various
powers. The postponement of Bismarck's speech on the military bill in
the reichstag, from Saturday to Monday, has'given a momentary respite to
the more anxious position of European
politics, as well as to* the continental
Statesmen whose future action will be
contingent upon the chancellor's utterances. But the fulminations of the
master-spirit of the German empire,
always fraught with admonition to the
fatherland and defiance to her enemies,
are awaited with more than ordinary
concern on this occasion, in view ofthe
slender thread which confines the German war-dogs to their kennels,
NO HOPE FOR THE LANDLORDS —IHE
CROFTERS.
London, Feb. 3.—The reply of Lord
Salisbury to the representatives of the
Irish landlords, gives them little hope
for the future, despite the fact that
the government claims to have no difficulty in governing Ireland, and predicts the oomplete subjection of turbulent elements in tbat oountry almost
immediately. Wh) then it cannot
grant to its only allies in Ireland, the
nibn in whose interests the country is
turned upside down, concessions equivalent to its exactions from the tenants
it is difficult to conceive. Concerning
the present situation in Ireland, the
O'Orrnnor Don, a scion of one of the
oldest and most influential Iriah houses
himself a landlord, declares that the
iute-ents of the landlords are daily
tending downwards, while the tendency of the tenants' interests is corres-
Eondingly upwards. In the same strain
i-rrd Aberdeen feels impelled to say
that tho margin upon which many of
the Irish tenantahave hitherto depended for their maintenance has vanished,
and a large number of those who were
formerly able to make buth enda meet
are now on the verge of starvation.
The trial of the second batch of the
second batch of the crofters, charged
with responsibility of the recent riots
at that place, has resulted hi their
conviction. Their sentences range from
6 to 12 months.
THIS MORNING'S DESPATCHED
THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.
London, Feb. 4.—Lord Salisbury's
cabinet met to-day and in less tban
two hours settled the terms of the
Queen's speech. It is stated that it
contains the announcement of a satisfactory result to the fisheries question.
This, however, is not generally believed.
A CRAZY POLICEMAN.
Mobile, Ala., Feb. i.—During the
primary election for municipal officers,
yesterday, a policeman named Cleveland became crazy from drink, and
shot and killed a laborer named Glen-
non as he was passing him.
2600 CIOARMAKERK ON STRIKE.
Boston, Feb. 4.--In accordance
with a meeting of cigarmakers last
night, 2500 men struck to-day.
SHIP BURNED.
San Francisco, Feb. 4.—A despatch

000.
WAR IN   FREIGHT  RATES.
Chicago, Feb. 4.—The Chicago,
Milwaukee & St. Paul railroad to day
made a cut of 2 cents on all classes of
freight tn Missouri River points; Today they alao cut _ cent in first-class.
This fun her cut is'met by the Southwestern Asflociutiun and also by the
Chicrig' and Southwestern as far as
Omaha and Council Bluffs are concerned. Tho Nrrrthwestern haa also
met the St. Paul cut of ten cents to
Minneapolis and St. Paul. No steps
have been taken to stop rate-cutting.

Marysville, Cal., Feb. 4.—Wm.
Dwyer, the colored man shot by Rev.
Mr. Washington on Thursday, died
this morning. The charge of murder
is entered against Washington. The
coroner will hold an inquest at 1 o'clook.
Washington takes the matter coolly.
A TOUOH CUSTOMER ARRESTED.
Nooales, Ariz., Feb. 4.—Late last
night one of the men who attempted
to rob the custom house was arrested
and lodged in jail. He is from Her-
mosillo and belongs to a hard gang of
robbers and cutthroats. The man re
fused to givo any information regarding his pals.
THE LANDLORDS CLAIMS.
Dublin, Feb. 4.—The Fretman't
Journal declares that the claims of the
Irish landlords are absurd, and that
their plans for compensation for losses
they have suffered in consequent** of
recent legislation cannot be carried
out,
THIS AFTERNOON'S DESPATCHES.
A HOW Foil THE  COURT HOUSB.
TofEKA, Feb. 4—Despatches gi»e
particulars of the oontest between the
towns of Eustis andGoodland for tha
county seat of Sherman County. The
latter town waa seemingly winner at
the election as the old officers who
were in Eustis refused to certify to the
new election, or surrender rteordi.
Then, the- Goodland people armed
themselves and forcibly seised the
records and are holding their rivals at
bay with revolvers and turpentine balls
with which they will try to bum the
town of Eustis if resistance is of-. -
fered. Upon appeal to Governor Mar.
tin he appointed General Wm. Dixon
and Oapt. McGrath of the state militia
to go to the Scene of disturbance and
enforce law and if necessary call out

THE COAL FAMINE IN 'FRISCO.
San Francisco, Feb. 4.—The coal
famine is becoming serious, and people
with limited means are unable to purchase any. A prominent dealer said
to-day: " We have no coal at all, and
nobody has any; we are all out You
can't get coal for lore or money, The
Wellington steamers are laid up and
can't get loaded. Some ships have
laid ninety days there aud haven't got
a load yet. Coal here sold for 110 a
ton up to about a week ago, for a long
time. Then it went up to twelve and
thirteen and now it is sixteen. Seattle
coal ia worth thirteen, but if you waa
to offer thirty I couldn't give you a
pound. There isn't any in the eity.
The Carbon Hill, or Willtosoh|mines,
belong to the Central Pacific Railroad.
It is fine, too, but they- ^YflijW*4H**£.
enough for their own use.. They are
burning Seattle coal all the time, and
I'm afraid if there isn't something
done in the next thirty days, no retail
yards in town will have any coal. They
nave next to none now, -and I don't
think I've got thirty tons in my yard
and, as I sell 20 tons a day, it looks
mighty like a coal famine. Prices will
go on advancing."

The dty Election.
Those who havo   been  watching
the progress of tho contested election
case in this municipality must have
como to tho conclusion   that   there
is great nntl urgent nccrl of n  wcll-
cousidered and siniplo election law
that mny take tho place of the cumbersome  and   crooked  enactments
under which wc have been proceeding.   The election in St.   Andrew's
ward wns voided because of tho   incomprehensible stupidity and   carelessness  of   tlie    deputy-returning
officer.    No ono could possibly  tell
who hnd received » majority of   tlio
legal votes; and   ns   objection hnd
been made to the return, there   was
nothing left but to order a now poll.
Messrs. Hoy and Reid were the per-
sons declared elected by the   officer;
and although  they  had   done  no
wrong, and  no   charge   had   been
brought against them, they are,
cording to law, forced  to pay  the
C03ts incurred   in unseating themselves who were perfectly blameless.
It must appear to every one   that
the operations of this law nre gross,
ly unjust.   If carelessness or wrong
doing had been found against these
two councillors elect,   there would
be nothing to sny; but   when   the
fault lay wholly and  unmistakably
with tho officer in whose hands the
conducting of the election had been
placed, that officer,   or   those   who
appointed him, ought in all justice
to pay the costs.   In the case of St,
George's   ward   the circumstances
were different.   In this ward   tho
returning-officer found  on counting
the ballots   thut   Messrs,  Herring
Shiles and Pearson had a majority
of votes, and Mr.  Elliott   was left
out.    But objection was taken   on
the part of Mr.  Elliott,  and a recount ordered.   The recount resulted in the judge declaring Mr. Elliott
elected, and Mr. Pearson left out.
It came out at this  trial   that the
returning-officer had, like his deputy,
been guilty of carelessness.     Three
ballots marked for Mr. Pearson, had
not been initialled, and were, therefore, thrown out.    But  although
neither Mr. Pearson nor any of the
other candidates were found guilty
of wrong-doing,  nnd the suspicion
of crookedness was not  even  mentioned against them,   the  costs  of
this recount were saddled upon Mr.
Pearson simply  because   he    had
been counted out.   Tho injustice in
this case is no less than in that of
St. Andrew's ward.    Believing that
he had received more votes than Mr.
Elliott, and that he was  fairly entitled to the seat, Mr. Pearson then
took proceedings to void the election.
This action led to a very long trial
and very remarkable developments.
The interpretations commonly put
upon the election laws, and hitherto
acted7 '"tip'ori  by   returning-ofiicers
were set aside by the  court,   and
principles were applied   which nre,
probably,  entirely  new   to   most
of our readers.    Wo are not  now
questioning the correctness  of the
judge, but in several particulars the
result of the trial seems to conflict
with   the  opinions  and praetices
which have hitherto prevailed with
respect to the qualification of voters
and the duties of returning-ofiicers.
It has been supposed, for example,
that the voters list, as finally revised,
was conclusive.    His lordship ex
pressed the opinion that this is   not
the case, and that an error or  oversight on the part of those who   pre
pare the list ought not to deprive a
qualified voter of his right to vote,
In the case of Mr. Rankin, his name
had been omitted from the list,  but
was put on during the election, and
was allowed to remain.   This point;
howover, was not disposed of exactly on its merits; but as Mr. Pearson
had consented to the name going on
at the time it was  held   he could
not now object to it.   It has hitherto been held byreturning-ofliecrs that
all ballots on which marks other
than the X hnd been mnde by   the
voter should be rejected as bad. The
conrt held virtually that where thn
intention of the   voter   wns quite
evident, and thero were no marks
which fairly could be tiken as intended to identify  him, the ballot
should be counted.     It  was  also
held that the "residence" of a person voting on trade license does not
mean where he sleeps, but where he
does  business  under   his  license.
The contrary view has hitherto prevailed.     The act provides that a
person  voting on a trado license
must havo paid his license for the
period. of three months   next pro
ceeding the election; but  the court
held that the license for the  current term, in which the election is
held, must also have been paid.   It
is to be hoped one of the effects  of
this trial will be the passing  of  a
new municipal act  whioh will  remove all doubts now existing with
respect to the mode of procedure and
qualification of voter;,   Such a law
is certainly Very much needed,  and
we hope the matter will receive attention without delay.   The voters
list should bo prepared with every
possible core, and should be final.

uT)o 1 believe in an inherited craving for alcoholic drink V says a writer
in tho Philadelphia News. "I do, I
believe we inherit from our parents
mental and physical vigor i r weak-
ncss, mural traits, the shape of our
nose and othor characteristics. A
good many years ago 1 knew a mnn
who gratified his every pns-sion. IIU
wife, a Christian woman, besought him
in vain to relorm, rightly pointing ont
to him that his vicious career was
bound to bring him to an untimely
grave. Hor ndvieo he indignantly rejected, declaring ttme and again that
he had no wish to load a correct life.
Upon his death-bed ho railed at the
clergyman his wifo induced to visit
him. And thus, with bitterness, ho
passed into the groat beyond, an oath
on his lips and scorn of decency in his
heart.
"Ho loft threo sons behind him.
In spite of thoir mother's prayers and
tears each son followed their father's
blighted example. Like their father,
at no period in tlieir lives did they over
t>how tho slightest desire to reform. So
reckless were they that not ono of the
three lived to be 25 years old. Two
of the brothers died unmarried. Tho
youngest took to himself a wife beforo
shuffling off the mortal coil. You may
claim that their depravity was nut innate but caused by their father's
example. I will not dispute th:s
point.
"But mark you this. Four month*
aftor tho death of the youngest brother a posthumous son was born to his
widow. Every care was taken to surround tho child with moral influence.
He know nothing of the dissipation of
his grandfather, father, and father's
brothers. They were dead. His
mother never spoke of them. Aa a
lad ho was brutal and vicious iu the
extreme. *I don't want to bo good I'
waa liis favorite expression if taken to
task for a boyiah misdeed. Beforo he
was 12 years old ho had run away from
homo eight limes to associate with
boyb of tlie gutter. He is now 21.
He is a drunkard, a thief (for ho stole
jewelry from hiB mother to pawn), and
a desolule reprobate. He declares
that if he knew of any vice into which
ho has not plunged he would straightway test it. He hia broken hia mother's heart. With the utmost complacency ho is watching her die of grief
for his depravity. Nothing affects
him. He is as indifferent to punishment as ho is to tenderness. If ho
lives ten years longer he will decorate
the gallows."
Never Despair.
Tho work in the temperance cause is
a great ono, but it cm be accomplished. The people of Holland who drove
back and abut out tho waves of tho sea
did not shiver in dumny at the great
work before them. They did licit sny
in despair " That's the Bca," and give
op hope of ri-straing its surging waves.
No. They brought great stones, and
backed those with Utile stones, nnd
these again with brancho-* of trees aud
sand and earth, till they raised great
solid dykes, against which tlie suit sea
waves dash and foam, but all is safo
within, guarded by tlmt vigilance which
ia the price of safety as well as liberty.
So we havo determined to resist the
tawny, seething, foaming tide of rum,
brandy, whiakey and othor intoxicating
drinks, and if you esteem youraelf
nothing but a cobble-stone, let us build
you into that wall and consecrate all to
the honor and glory nf Him who
"pleased not Himaolf," and freely
gave Himself up for all.
Hog xurtly tbe Same.
"Recently," Bays a temperanco advocate, " I bhw a drunken hog down
in tho lower portion of ihe city. (I
moan a hog with four leys; of course
most of us have seen two-leggod ones
drunk). He got drunk on stale beer.
tt waa very amusing to see tho porker
aa he would etasger along and occasionally put his uoso to tho ground iu
order to Inure himself and put on
brakes. It would bristle up nnd try
to fight tho largest hog that would
come near. Ho had all tho symptoms
the two-legged onca usually have. Aftor getting * braced up' he took a
solemn allidavit that ho would nevor
make a man of himself again."
A Baloou-keeper advertises that old
whiskey is tlie best and that li3 has the
most ancient whiskey in New York
city. Well, tho older it grows the
better for tlio customers. If all tho
whiskey in the country were allowed
to keep growing older and older till
tho yenr IflOO what a marvelous change
for good the 20th century would present in the homes, the habits, nnd the
happiness of our people. Besides, if
the whiskey is allowed to grow old
there will he a chance for its former
consumers to grow old too, instead of
filling drunkards' premature graves.
Tho leading insurnnco companies of
America will not insure liquor dealers,
because the averago man cannot resist
temptation nnd can't withstand the
constant desire to tip a little now and
thon, and nine out of ten become
drunkards nnd die before their time.
Look around among those wh'.m you
know and see how many of whom this
is true. No, it doesn't pay to insure
liquor-dealers.—Ev,
A few days a-jo a boat carrying.four
car-loads of beer was run down and
sunk in the Enst River, N. Y. Anglers are complaining of bad spurt there
since.
It is estimated that 8000,000,000 is
spent annually in the United Statei
for liquor.

A LITTLE MIOyH'3 dtiiTi
> Coining Ber Etui Alter Venrs of loll and
...   Prlrntiuir.         „
A determined little widow, named
BuHbrd, living in Washington county
fin.), after a quarter ol a century ot admirable peraever.rncir iiUrl sacrifice, has
accomplished no ordinary feat.
1 At the breaking put of. the WW, her
husband, an overs .'f'r in Macon bounty,
enlisted in a Qeorgii tegjment and left
hia wifo and cirrht small, helpless children with no l.mtls, oil a small estato
against which there wns an indebtedness
of $3,000. When her husband was
killed, a year or two later, tho oldest of
ber children was less than twelvo yrars
of age. She realized' that ihe responsibility of their maintenance andeducalton
devolved «I»u b T, and she did not!
ishrink from it
i brown entiroly on 'ler own rcroiuucs
rflio applied hei-Hr-11 to the spindle and
supported herfamilv upinnini^throad and
weaving cloth. Tlii.i slin did successfully until "atonr ijun^ht" goods forced
her to turn hor eiu*rjj.u s ih a moro profit*
aide direction. Unmhnratoil and without
capital there wan no oponini! for her but
tire Held. Mio run ed » rrule and some
n.-ir ected laud .nil begin farming, actually doing the laborious work incident
to farm cultivation, i ler eliildren could
tnot aid her, anil foi several years the
i brave littlo worn n plowed her ground,
■owed her seals, and reaped ber harvests. '',     ■
She waa eicedinily energetic and
economical, end flniiljv had saved lutll-
cient money to purchase n home.   Now
Rhe baa a well p tying estate, mules, oat-
le, and and other atoir and a comfortable liltle fortune lai I aside. Her children are grown np and command tho
(respect of the community. A few days
ago tbe successful '.arnier' made overtures to secure the ancestral plantation,
and the prosperous littio family havo
.returned to the home of a quitter ot a
•century aincj.

The history of the world Irai bex*
dotted along with th' lirr.ea oi tbre-j
who havo posrensed r\'ittani u.lo nieirin-
ries. As far buck as tli.' m.i rot > periods
of antiquity, we r.rj told there l.ved men
who were famous for their wo.rdcr.iul
powers of memory.
, It is said of Thoiulstocles, that he could
call by their name the people oi Athens,
which city then numbered twenty thousand inhabitants.
Georgo the Third, of England, though
deficient in education, never forgot a
name onco or a face once seen.,
r A school teacher of London whose
name was Dawson, possessed a remarkable memory. Hu could repent the book
of Job and the Psalms, and on a wager
nf tiro hundred pounls, ho repeated,
without the aid of a book, Spencers
H'cnei'io Queen," a poem of nearly four
thous rnri stanzas of nine lines each.
1 Parsons, the (ircek scholar, could re-
ipeat Milton's "Paradise Lost" backwards.
A monk who resided In Moscow in the
fifteenth century, could repeat tho whole
of the -New Testament.
It has been written of the Bourbons
that they never forget a man's name, nor
his faco, and that this hss been some-
thins considered as a true sign of their
royal natures.
lloiulin was onco invited with his son,
to t gentleman's house to givo a private
Seance, and as they wont up-stairs they
passed the library door, which wus
partially open,   in that single moment
Koung Charles Hoiulin read oil the names
I twelve volumes ant rccognirred the
position of two busts.
Tlie gentleman, during the seance, was
rrtfUlly led by the father to ssk some
questions relating to the library, and was
astonished by the accuracy of tiio magi-
rian's answers.
I'oone, the blind negro pianist who
has givon performances through ieveral
Statu, haa a most wonderful memory in
onnecfio* with hla'arts From once
learing it, he waa able to play LIzst's
relebrated "Hungarian Khapeody" with-
mt missing t note. .
Blind Tom also performed similar
eats.
Mozart, when only 13 yean old, played
'new opera from one hearing, which had
Ben composed expressly to test his
UU.
A writer, referring to this incident,
aysi "He not only reproduced tbe opera
rom momory—which was a vert dilll-
ult piece—without missing a single note,
rut on a second playing, threw in varia-
ions in such a manner that all who
ward him wen speechless with aston-
Ihment."
McKenzie tells tu ■ most interesting
tory about Carolan, a blind Irish harper
ind composer, who once challenged t
anions Italian violinist to a trial of skill.
The Italian'played the fifth concerto
if Vivaldi on his violin; then, to the
stonishment of all present, Carolan, who
lad never before.heard the concerto,
iiad never before heard the concerto,
tok hlsjharp and.plsved It through
mm begUnlaf to end without mining a

In the upper soils of Mercia, which the
iver has deposited in later times, there
ire Uinta carefully wrought and implements finely polished, showing tbat a
mpurior race had become occupants of
he land.
From tlielr habit ol choosing caverns
or their dwellings, when these could be
found, they have been distinguished as
Bivemen. Their haut.ts wero not conned to tho river valleys, but, though
hey spread themselves over thp hills,
hey still made no attempt to construct
ha nations, contenting .themselves with
hose which: nature offered. The same
leld at lllttham, whew the relics of the
iv r-drlft man lay in tho lower gravel,
ins yielded also three Hint celts of this
hitter race. One of these measures
uie in. ties In length, with a breadth of
me inches. A Bint javelin head nnd
mny other relics of the came character
iuve been found in the'fields and woods
rtTeplow.
Polished ue heads, oovon Inches In
I'pth and three in width, have been
riken from the river bed, one of croon-
roue at Taplow mills, and another of
lUartzite ji*Jt below at Maidenhead.
Here; alao. among (eaves' and sticks in
ii peaty soil a few yards front the river,
here was lately found, souie four feet
wow the sunsoe, tho small skull of a
irinritive woman, whoso antiquity issuf-
Ii'iontiy proved hy the thigh bone and
iroken antlers of t reindeer that lay bo-
' le it.
The Irish elk was In these days the
last survival ol the olr.er ottlnrt animals, and men had learned to (ish on
pieces of hs vast miller r fnr their iiisirn-
Knents.   A hammer of tb'.% character has
ately beon taken irom the river bed at

Ulcers, Abscesses, Cancerous Hnmors,
and, in some cases, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of the blood, This disease can bs
cured by the use of Ayer's SarsapariUa.

Coal Ontlooki
Unless tlie Nanaimo coal mines are
reopened very shortly there will be a
genuine coal famine, and it is likely to
esult in laying up a number of steamers along (he coast. Stocks generally
have been light for some time pnat
and another week will reduce the supply on hand to such an extent that it
mny become necessary to lay up a
number of our steamers.

The contest in St. Andrew's ward
came off to-day, Capt. Peele acting as

and several outsiders presented themselves at tlie ballot box. Tlio result

the returning officer to be as follows :
Hoy, 51; Ovens, 47; Roid, 36.
Messrs. Hoy and Ovens are, therefore,

Ken' Freight Rales.
A hew tariff for westbound freight
went into effect on tho Canadian Pacific railway on Thursday, tlio 20th
ult, Tho tariff operates from Winnipeg to Victoria, Vancouver, Westminster, Port Moody, Hammond, and
Port Haney, in British Columbia;
Tacoma, Seattle and Port Townsend,
in Washington Territory, and Sau
Francisco, California, und is ns follows:
1 2 a -15 0 7 8 0
2,80...-2.20.T..1.75.,..1.55...1.26.M.15..1.M...95...8fi
The rates for the 10th, Ilth, 12th,
13th and 14th-class freight are tbo
same, 80 cents. The tariff is governed
by Pacific coast classification westbound. Rates to Nanaimo, B. C,
will be 10 cents per 100 lbs. on all
classes in excess of abovo figures.
The S. S. Parthia cleared rum
Vancouver this morning at 7 clock
for Yokahamn, taking 8 first ss, 3
second clnss nnd 27 steerage passengers She will not stop at Victoria
this trip, all passengers and freight
from that city having been brought
over yesterday. The Parthia carries
away a full cargo, which is principally
composod of flour and cotton. The
vessel was due to sail on the 30th, but
owing to the detention of some important freight she was held until its
arrival. Capt, Webber has decided
that the China steamers will not call
nt Victoria or Eaquimnlt in future until some arrangements are mado which
will do away with the serious loss of
time incurred in entering and clearing
the vessels at these ports.

The Fort William Journal doesn't
scorn to like the idea of the C. P. R.
buying such large quantities of lumber
in Westminster and building warehouses, etc., with it in Fort William
and Port Arthur. It admits though
that British Columbia lumber is the
best that cun bo procured, and it is
perfectly right. The following is extracted from tho Journal: "A lurge
gang of carpenters and laborers are
engaged In . the construction of the
grain shed at Fort William. Its dimensions are by no. means small, as
Iho foundation laid is 100x500 feet,
and the building when completed will
have a storing capacity of 500,000
bushels. The timber used in tho construction is tho best that can be procured, and is brouuht all the way from
Westminster, British Columbia. Why
the company should look to B. C. fur
the timber they need is a problem we
are unable to solve. Our mill owners
here claim to be ablo to furnish as good
a quality of timber as enn bo found in
the Dominion, and at prices not to bo
compared with what it cost the compnny to procure their supply on tho
Pacifio coast and lay it down here."
Mr. C. E, Riggins, Beamsville, writes;
"A customer who tried a bottle of
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery says it is tho best thing he ever
used; tn quota his own words, 'It just
seemed to touch the spot affected.'
Abont a year ago he had an attack of
bilious fever, and was afraid he was in
for another, when I recommended this
valuable medicine 'with suoh happy
results,"
('. P. B. Blockade*
The remarkably mild weather of tho
last few days proves a more serious
obstacle to the C. P. R train service
than the stormiest weather of tho season. During tho heavy* snow storms
and gules of the past few weeks, which
blockaded nearly every road in the
western aud iiorth-westorn part of tho
continent, the C. P. R. was subjected
to very little irregulurity. But the
mild weather haB caused heavy snow-
slides, and on Thursday five trains
were reported blooked, two west and
threo east. At North Bend it was
stated that over fifteen feet of snow
covered the track and slid down as fast
as removed. Two engines were slightly damaged by a collision at that point
and five Chinaman aro reported to
havo been killed while riding on a
snow plow nottr Griffin Lake.—Kamloops Sentinel.
During tho pnst two weoks wo havo
sent out accounts to nearly all who
subscribe for the Webkme Columbian-.
A largo number have responded with
commendable promptness, and while
remitting the amount due not a fow
havo taken occasion to express their
appreciation of the newspaper, more
than ono declaring that it is without
exception the best weekly newspaper
published in British Columbia. There
are u few, however, who have failed to
respond at all, and we wish to remind
them thnt tho subscription (only ?2 a
year) is payable in advance and ought
to be sent promptly at the beginning
of the year. Our subscription list is
very large, and our renders are scattered all through the province, nnd the
only satisfactory arrangement is that
which is everywhere adopted by widely-circulated newspapers—cash strictly
in advance. We hopo those who have
not already forwarded the amounts due

Fears are entertained that if the winter is a long one, hay will bo very
scarce before spring ahd great suffering
aud loss of horses and cattle will result, owing to the stockmen trying to
have largo herds of horses and cattle
without providing sufficient feed for
winter, but allowing the stock to roam
on grounds already eaten bare. During the winter thero is no work dono
on the mineral claims in thia district.
Tho Bonanza Company on Cayuse
creek have had an offer from an English company to hond tho mine for six
months for tho sum of $250,000. Tho
company replied-to the proposal by
agreeing to bond tho mino for six
months for §350,000 nnd tho English
syndicate to put up a forfeit of 810,-
000. They havo had other proposals,
one of which was to put up a twenty-
stamp mill iu good running order for
one-seventh of two of their locations.
Tho compnny own six locntions. These
offers are the best yet made to any
company in British Columbia- so far as
board of, and thero is no doubt but
that considerable work will be done
on Cayuse creek quartz during tbe
coming season. Somo parties claim to
havo found another good ledge, bear-
ins gold and silver, ou Cayuee creek
about three miles from the mouth.
The discoverers of this ledge are old
quartz miners and feel confident that
they have a good thing. Tho more
good ledges found in the country the
better. — Sentinel Correspondence.

Ridgo intimates thnt there is no such

wero misled by the person upon whose

of Jan. 11. Now, sir, I Bay that there
are 22 places takon up, nnd, although
3 men out of the 22 do not reside on
their places, the remaining 10 are residents on their land. In justice to myself and tho rest of tho settlement, I
must say thut the person culling himself a subscriber either intentionally
misrepresents or knows very little
nbout the municipality. If I am not
mistaken "Subscriber' has boon a member of Ihe councillor tho last three or

and J. D, Edward gave evidence. Tho
tenor of the evidence is that the ex
plosion took place in the f.ieo of tho
east level, only one witness stating in
his opinion that it started in Horn's
airway. The committee of miners
havo just returned from tho shaft,
from fiuttting out tho coal surrounding
the drill hole in the face of tlie east
level nnd they state positively that tho
hole was fired. This evening the evidence in the inquest can bo concluded.
A mass meeting of miners will bo held
in tho Institute hall on Saturday after*
noon at 4 o'clock,

Wkllington, Feb. 3.—When all the
evidence had been concluded the jury
retired, and after being nut for a considerable time returned Iho following
verdict:—Mr. Coroner, we, tho jury,
according to the evidence produced,
unanimously agree that Robert Green-
well on the 24th of January 1888 came
to his death from tho effects of an explosion in east level, No. 5 shaft,
Wellington Collieries, caused by a
blown out shot iu Luuncelot Robinson's place, igniting the powder and
dust. We believe that No. 5 pit was
a well ventilated mine. We also agree
that the management of the mino was
good and attach no blame to tho managers. We would recommend that
doors in all mines be supplied with
"Whito" trapped, or that double doors
be constructed, and that the mining
act bo more strictly carried out in regard to crosscuts; that less powder be
used in blasting and that competent
men be employed to oversco tho tiring
of shots, Wo, the jury, beg to thank
and congratulate you ou the courteous
and impartial manner in which you
have conducted this inquiry. Signed,
Robt. Grant, foreman.
Mrs. W. J, Lang, Bethany, Ont.,
writes: I was one of the greatest sufferers for about fifteen months with a
disease of my ear similar to ulcers, causing entire deafness. I tried everything
thnt could he done through medical skill,
but without relief. As a last resort, I
tried Dr. Thomas' Eclctiic Oil, and in
ten minutes found relief. I continued
using it, nud in a short time my ear was
cured and hearing completely restored.
I have used this wonderful healer successfully in cases of inflammation of the
lungs, sore throat, coughs and colds,
cuts nnd bruises, kc, in fact it is our
family medicine.

Like all StERHNO Remedies, Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cure deserves a fair trial.
It would be absurd to suppose thnt this
or nny other medicine of kindred nature
could produce instnntancous ell'ccts.
For tho thorough rcmovol. of Chronic
Dyspepsia. Constipation, Liver Complaint, and othor ailments to which it is
adapted, its use should be continued
some time, even after the chief symptoms
are relieved. That it then effects complete cures is a fact established by ample
and respectable evidence.
