The Times' Libel.
It was unnuuueed some few weeks
ngo that an action for libel had teen
commenced against tho Victoria
Times for some comments passed by
it, rcltecting very severely upon the
supposed action of the provincial
secretary and the attorney-general
in regaiil to some proceedings connected with a trial whicli took place
recently. In its issue of Tuesday
last our cotemporary desires to withdraw the statements previously made
by it, as it linds that it had been
misinformed. We presume ihnt this
will lead to llie dismissal ot' the suit.
This action on the part of the Times
will of course clear the high officials
referred to of any imputation of improper motives in their action, and
to that extent will bo doubtless
satisfactory to them and to the public. But we hope the incident will
serve as a warning, not only to our
cotemporary, but to other papers ns
well, not to make statements unless
they hnve almost absolute certainty
that uny charges they may make
are well grounded. Thore is at
present, apparently, nn inclination
on the part of many newspapers to
be careless as to tho reports which
they give currency to concerning
the motives or actions of men in
public positions. A free and outspoken public press is a necessity
and corollary of free institutions.
But to let this freedom run into
license, especially when it altbcts
public servants, is an evil only less
serious than a servile and corrupt
press would be. We are well awuro
that sensational articles attract notoriety to a paper, and help to ill-
oreasu its circulation. We do not
impute this motive to our cotemporary in this instance, but thut this
has been so in many cases no ono
will gainsay. A properly conducted
journal whilst resolute in exposing
every abuse, will at the same time
be very jealous in excluding.4rom.jts
columns everything whicli it has not
the most substantial reasons for believing true.—Vancouver Sews.
A Sign or Ihe Times.
An agreement just entered into
by tbe distillers of the United .States
to limit the output of whiskey is an
interesting aud cheering sign of the
times. It appears that tho consumption of whiskey iu the Union
is steadily declining. In 1800
eighty four millions of gallons wero
used, but during the lasl live years,
though tho population has greatly
increased since 1860, the average
annual consumption was but 74,-
500,000 gallons. Based upon the
population, the consumption in the
former year was two and one third
gallons per head; while in the latter
period it was one and a half gallons
per head. As a result of the decline
the distillers iind themselves with
an excessive supply on hand, and
they aro reduced to the necessity of
combining, not merely to keep up
the prices, but to raise them so ns to
cover tho cost of holding their surplus stock nnd'of continuing certain
of their distilleries in idleness. This
condition of affairs indicates a steady
growth of active temperance sentiment. What is more, tho increased
price of liquor is calculated to still
further discourage its use, which is
a gain of considerable importance.
It is gratifying to noto that the de-
maud for liquor is weakening in
Canada as well us in the United
States. In 18C1 Canadians consumed a gallon and a half of spirits
por head; in 1874 they used nearly
two gallons por head. But last year,
188G, they consumed but seven-
tenths nf a gallon per head. The
actual consumption from 1881 to
1885 was four million gallons per
annum. In 1887 there only passed
into use 2,478,(198 gallons. In tho
matter of imported spirits there has
also lieen a decline. The 480,911-'
gallons of brandy imported iu 187G
have been brought down to 2111,790
in 1886 ; n reduction of lifty pin
cent, in ten years, though the population has increased. During tho
same period the gin imported has
been reduced from 474,411 gallons
to 408,247 gallons, and tho run from
144,506 gallons to 103,902 gallons.
Across the line tho decrease in tho
use of spirits has been accompanied
by t alight growth in the consumption of beer; but in Canada tho use
of beer has not bean increased. It
is apparent that a temperance wave
of admirable proportions has been
sweeping over the continent of
Nortli America. That it will continue to wash out the evil influonco
is very certain, for tho business of
trading in liquor is daily becoming
less pleasant, while the frequenting
of drinking places is no longer n sign
of manliness or respootability,— The

Some BtretcMng.
Ill their ellbrts to boom the salt
water terminus of the C. F. K., real
estate men are sometimes sparing
of the truth. It has been claimed
that neither a real estate man nor
an auctioneer should be held responsible for his utterances, and if they
are the record against some of them
will be quite serious. A paper was
issued a few weeks ago by E. J.
Clark, Toronto, called a "Sketch of
Vancouver," and is being very freely
circulated through the country. In
this document, comprising 4 pages
nf foolscap, we find some useful and
reliable information, and some that
is unreliable and misleading. The
fourth paragraph, for example, states
that Vancouver is about 10 miles
from Westminster (it is 12), and
that Westminster has a population
of 6,000. The fact is, our population is very little over half that
number. "The time is not far distant," says this fly-sheet, "when
street cars will maintain constant
communication between the two
cities, and the growth be so closely
connected to appear as one, like the
twin sister cities of St. Paul and
Minneapolis." With this we have
no fault to find, for it is not at all
improbable that the prediction of
the writer will be realized within
the lifetime of many of our readers.
A little further on it is stated that
during the past six months the
population of Vancouver has been
growing at the rate of 500 per
month,and is now 5,000. Asa
matter of fact the population of
Vancouver is not any larger
than that of this city, which we
have already said is very little over
3,000. But the same paragraph informs us that a year ago the terminal city had only 300 inhabitants.
When the great fire occurred on the
13th June of last year, the city
claimed a population of nearly 3,-
000, although no one believed the
claim could be justified by facts.
It had, however, not very much
short of 2,000, so that the increase
in the year has really been about
1,500. Thia is a large increase, but
it li insignificant compared to the
increase claimed by the fly-sheet,
from 300 to 5,000. It is not true
that 500 people are being added to
the population each month, or anything like it. The compiler of the
fly-sheet must either have drawn
altogether on his imagination, or
counted the people who came in
without deducting those who went
out. It is a pity the writer did not
inform himself better upon the subject before undertaking to instruct
the public.
The Two By-Laws.
Notwithstanding the unpropitious
circumstances under which the loan
by-law was passed, and the opposition to the tneasuro coming from
many quarters, a majority of the
council have seen fit to pass it finally. It is sometimes easier to commit an act than to undo it We
believe a majority of the council will
agree with us that it would be injudicious to attempt to float a loan on
the strength of the loan by-law just
passed, and it would have been better if the measure had been dropped
More it reuched tho final stage.
In saying this we do not wish to be
understood to have changed our
views respecting the loan. Nothing has transpired to lessen the requirements of the city onto indicate
a way whereby we may meet necessary demands without going into
the money market But where
serious doubts exist respecting the
validity of a by-law, and many prominent citizens have been unfairly
excluded from the right to vote on
so important a measure, it seems to
us better to hasten slowly than to
thrust ourselves unnecessarily into
trouble. Our opinion is that no
debentures should be issued on the
present loan by-law. There is an.
other by-law before the council
which has received a good dial of
public attention, namely, the Sunday observance by-law. This measure, we understand, proposes to
prevent as much as possible all ordinary and unnecessary traffic on the
Sabbath day, and to close all business places on that day. On the
expediency of such a law the council seem to be divided, although we
doubt if there is any difference of
opinion respecting the ethical principle involved. It was expected
the by-law would be submitted to
a rote of the people. At the last
meeting of the council, however,
was thrown out on the reading of the second clause, the
mayor unexpectedly voting against
it But the mayor explains that he
is not opposed to a Sunday law, but
is opposed to the one now before the
council because in his opinion it
cannot be legally enforced. The
judgment in the Victoria appeal
case makes it clear tbat such a bylaw, to he safe, should not come
into force during the current license
term. The mayor says if the bylaw ia changed so as not to eome
into force until the beginning of
next year, when the present licenses
shall have expired, he will support
it, but not otherwise. We think
he ii justified in taking thii ground,
and we hope the promoters of the
by-law wilt; Hake the change indicated. With the mayor's vote it
will then pas*

* JOHNHAUET'SSECRET.
Tho air WM clear and dry on the hill,
although tho mists pt an autumn twilight wero settling down on the busy little
town in tlio valley below.
Mr. Hallot hnd been an Invalid for tho
List week or two; not 111 enough to cause
any alarm, yet not woll enough to go to
tlio oity as usual; and thankful that he
had a shrewd, sensible son, both able
and willing to take his place.
Henry threw himself into the breach
manfully, and bad oven slept in town for
several nights, that he might sit later at
his books, and begin earlier.
Tho mother would have preferred to
stay and watch for her boy's coming; but
Mr. Hallet was calling, and she went to
him. He was surveying a doomed
honeysuckle,
"We planted It the year Henry was
born," he reminded bis wife. " I sup-
poso you think that would bo a reason
for letting it stand?"
Mrs. Hallet smiled as sho replied:
" Nay, John; it Is not I who give away
to sentiment."
Tho words wero no sooner spoken than
sho wished sho had not uttered them, for
a frown contracted her husband's brow,
and ho raised his oyos Involuntarily to
where a cotiplo of windows wero nearly-
hidden by the passion flower.
In the room those windows should
have lighted, John Hailet's father had
. spent the closing years of his life. An
accident rendered him incapable of leaving it, and when ho expired, his wifo soon
followed him to the grave.
From tho day ot the funeral not a
creature was allowed to enter this room
but old Llsheth, tlie trusty German who
had drifted into tho household of tho
Hnllols in her youth.
A shout from the children proclaimed
that Henry had come.
His first look was for bis mother.
A f ter sho had satisfied herself that he did
not appear to bo any the .worse for the
confinement and hard work of the week,
alio was content to stand quietly by while
business matters wero discussed. Sho
could have fancied that Henry was
rather rustless-under the questioning to
which he was subjected.
But at last Mr. Hallet appeared satisfied, and he would have led the way in*
doors, but now, in eager haste, the young
mnn poured forth tho tidings ho had
been burning to toll.
"Such news for you, father I Mother
dear, what do you think has happened?
Aunt Mary sent for mo tho other evening
—you will say that that is not a very uncommon occurrence," and Henry and
Mrs. Hallot Interchanged amused smiles,
fi >i- Miss Mary Hallot was one of tliu fus-
m'.;-*! of maiden Indies. "Shesontforme
Unit she might Introduce me toeomo now
rehitioiis from over the sea. You had a
brother, papa, who died not long after
my grandfather?"
Mr. Hallot did not Immediately reply.
Yes, ho had had a half-brother, whose
restless disposition had induced htm to
demand his portion and sail away with it
to America. After many wanderings he
iutd sottled In Canada and married.
Prido had induced him to be silent respecting the mistakes ho had made, the
11 lis fortunes thut had befallen him; but
just beforo tho clout li of tho elder Mr.
Hallot, a rumor roadied England that
Urn Canadian farm did not pay, and its
owner was struggling with sickness ns
well as an unfnvoi-ublu season, Offers of
help wero sont, but thoy were doolined;
those offers wero repeated to Tom Hal-
let's widow, and again, but moro gratefully, refused. Since that time, long
years ago, no intercourse had been kept
up between tho families; what, thon, did
Henry mean?
"It wns to my uncle Tom's elder
daughters Aunt Mary Introduced mo.
Tliey are tall, bright, handsome girls,
t - ny and frank and unaffected, yet quite
as ludy-llke as my sisters Eva and Emma.
Thoy havo led a busy life, working
wiI li their mother to free the farm of its
encumbrances. Thoir labors have been
successful; they are prospering at last;
nnd so they have felt themselves Justified
in taking a trip to England, to mako
acquaintance with their kindred."
" And crossed tho Atlantic alono!" exclaimed Mrs. Hallet.
"Oh, no, they eamo under the wing
of a friend, the elderly lady who took
Uiem to Aunt Mary's. They have fascl-
iir.ted her, and—'Henryturned to his
silent father, "and I think—lam sure
you will like your nieces, sir—they aro
charming girls."
But Mr. Hallet put out his hands, crying hoarsely; "Keep them away from
me!   I will not have them hero 1"
And so saying, ho went quickly into the
house, whither his wife would have followed If her son had not detained hor.
"Mother, what does this moan?" ho
asked. " Is my father worse? Is it possible that he knows what ho is saying?
lie never hod any quarrel with Uncle
Tom, did he? Then what oould have
made him speak so strangely?"
"I do not know; perhaps a sudden
spnsm.  I must go to him."
"Ah, yes, go, and bog of him to explain himself, for thoy are coming here,
these cousins of mine. I told them in
your name and my father's, that they
would be welcome; and so 1 thought
thoy would. How can I meet them
again? how tell them—"
And then, groaning in bis Impatience
and alarm, Henry hurried his mother in.
II.
On Monday morning Mr. HalMt pronounced himself able to go to business.
Thoy would have pitied him had they
known what a Sunday he had spent,
shutting himself away from his family
because every questioning  look they
turned upon him seemed to plorco his
huart and lay bare that which he Idd
within it.
Yes, the upright, honorable John Hal*
lit hnd a secret that he had burled so
deep down ns to be sometimes forgotton,
until a chance word or recollection would
bring it back to his memory. Ho had a
(rouble of which no ono knew anything
Uit old Llsbeth. and even ehe did not
Kiispoet Its nature.
In till honesty of purpose she had told
him. as he stood by his mother's coffin,
Hint Madam's dearest wish had beon to
sou her absent son Tom,
'' I think she had a message for him,"
Llsbeth added—" a written one, I know
Unit just betoro your good fathor died,
she wns talking to him of Master Tom;
and I hoard her say she was sure he
would come back If ho could come to the
old homo."
"Did sho wish my father to will this
houso to him?" asked John Hallot.
"I think so," Lisboth replied. "I
know lie gavo tho dear mistross a paper
(hat she cried ovor after he was gono;
but I do not know what sho did with lt."
Tlie paper hnd never beon found.
At first John Hailet's feelings with regard' to It had been of angry surprise,
lie wus the elder, brother, and had always
resided at tho Copse. With the approbation of his parents ho had brought his
bride hero, und his children were born
under tlie roof ho had oome to look upon
us his own*
He did not dellblfltely schemo to
wrong his brother, but ho never made
any search for the paper of which Llsbeth had spoken.
And so years had rolled on without
anyone disputing with John Hallett his
possession of tho home so dear to htm.
Llsbeth made no furthor allusion to tho
paper. She knew that Master Tom was
dead, and was not aware that it might
have beon of important* to, his widow
und offspring. .
And now, riter all this lapse of tlmo,
tho children of John Hailet's dead
brother had come to England. For what
could it be, he asked agitatedly, but to
claim thoir own?
Jolm Hallet started for town oppressed
witli a new fear. Llsbeth might have
found tho paper, and, suspecting him of
foul play, posted It to Canada.
How he got through the day no one
knew, for Henry pleaded a headache
and stayed at home.
Tlio disappointed youth would not risk
encountering his newly found relatives,
while ho wus unablo to account to them
for his father's extraordinary refusal to
receive them at tho Copse.
Mrs. Hailet's sympathies were with
her son, but sho was too dutiful a
wife to say so, and seeing that she
avoldod him, Henry carried a book
Into tho shrubberies, shunning the eyes
of Ids elder sisters, who, for lack of any
other reason for his doprosslon, decided
that ho must have fallen In love.
And so ho had. Already ids heart had
gono out to bright, capable, brown-haired
Nell.
At Ii t he went indoors to find his
mother He hurried to the morning-
room and had entered lt from tlie
garden, before ho became aware that
the maid was ushering tn some visitors.
It was too late to retreat,* thoy wero
actually fn tho room, Nell and Min
gazing around thorn with shy pleasure,
and Miss Mary Hallet, her broad face
beaming with smiles as she caught hold'
of her sister-in-law's hands, and kissed
her on both cheeks.
"My dearest Jennie, I have brought
. these dear girls to spend a few days with
you—poor Tom's daughters."
Mr. Hallet by a great effort composed
himself sufficiently to meet his guests;
but if his lips were palo and he turned
nwuy from them to shade ids eyes with
his hand, they saw nothing suspicioue
in it.
On tho contrary, their conviction that
ho was thinking of their father, of whom
tids gray-haired, stately gentleman was
tho living image, drew thorn towards
him. They hovered near his chair, they
left off speaking whon they heard his
voice, and, when complaining of fatigue,
lie roso to go to his room, moved by tho
same impulse, both girls ran forward to
put thoir arms about his necks and hold
up their fair young faces for a goodnight kiss.
It was plain that he had boon mistaken
when he fancied they had come to wrest
his homo from him, but he was nono
the happier for the knowledge Ho trlod
to appear calm and cheerful, to respond
to the affectum with which his, nlooos
were disposed to regard him; but when
they talkod—as thoy did freely—of tho
trials nnd struggles they and-their
mother had gono through bofore and
after their bereavement, his heart fainted
within him, and his remorse would bo-
coi.io overpowering.
Jolm Hallet would fain have mado
atonement. Ho thrust Into Nell's hand
n roll of notes; but It was promptly returned.
No, he was not to bo allowed to gloze
Ids conscience by this kind of compensation. Nolthorwasit nny uso protesting
that tho very net of leaving tlio Copso
away from him—tlio eldest son—wns
unfair, especially as Tom's portion had
beon justly muted out to him nt ids own
desire. As long as Tom's daughters
wore In his houso, keeping alive the old
recollections, how could he bo at peaco
with himself?
Four days elapsed—anxious ones to
Honry und his mother, who watched
Mr. Hailet's changing moods, but hesitated to speak of them even to each
other—yet very pleasant ones to the
young Ciuiudjans. Attributing to thoir
uncle's Ill-health tho shadow they saw
on Ids brow, tind-the troubled looks his
wifo und son would Interchange, thoy
were always gentle and sympathetic.
It was the only check on their enjoyment of their visit to their English relations. Aunt Mary, in splto of her fidgety ways, was a lovablo old lady. Mrs.
Halle;; was vory motherly; and as for
Henry, ah, Noll would sigh whenever
she reminded herself how soon their stay
in England would draw to a close.
One morning tho sisters wero on thoir
way to the garden, when they saw
Llsbeth In the act of unlocking tlie door
of tho closed chamber.
Thoy passed Into it with hor. Elizabeth opened a tall press and shook out
before them tho folds of their grandmother's wedding gown.
As sho described hor mistress Nell saw
that front the pocket of tho dress a morsel of tho bridal handkerchief wns peeping. To get a better view of tho line, old
laco that bordered lt, sho drew it out,
and with It came a folded paper,
"AhI" cried Llsbeth, "it Is tlio ono
my good master gavo to her boforo ho
dlod. Sho must have gono to tho press
and slipped it into the pocket of this
dress, instead of her ordinary ono; thoy
hung together then. Take it, young
ladles 1 I believe, nay, but I am sure, it
concerns your father.
Mr. Hnlletwns Just sitting down to breakfast when Noll and Mtn came to his
side with Uio paper.
'■We havo not oponod It, dear undo;
it is you who should read It to us. Perhaps It was to lot my fathor know that
his parents had quite forgiven him for
leaving them. He used to say hu hud
not noted woll whon ho deserted
them."
But John Hallet pushed the paper
from him.
"Tho hand of God Is In this," he
groaned. " Head lor yourselves, und
euse my soul of tho burden thai lies
heavily upon It. Llsbeth told me tlioro
was Btich a paper In existence, but my
search (or It wnsnhulMionrtud one. I
valuod my homo more than what Is
right, but If I am to lose it I will bear
the loss without murmuring, for 1 have
had groator mercies bestowed on mo
than I deserve"
Mrs. Hallot diow nonrer, aud laid her
cheek against her husbund's, while Min
rend tho linos the paper contained:
" I havo thought ovor your wish, dear
wife; it is hard to say you nny; but I
cannot lot compassion for Tom make mo
unjust to his brother. Do you know
that it John had not tolled early und into
nt tho time of that terrible crisis, we
must hnve boon ruined?''
So Uio Copso was tho property of John
Hallet niter all.
Nell and Min went bnck to Canada at
tho appointed tlmo, but thoy did not
rofu-iotho useful gifts their undo added
to their baggago, for they suw that he
would bo a happier man if allowed to
take tlio place of the futlicr they had
lost. Henry will follow them In the
spring to fetch home his bride.

of presentlvitfa subject, the whole situation Is revealed at a Rhince, The success
of Grip shows bow well this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons on tbe passing political events of the country being oven
moro tJngerly sought after than the chaste
and humorous letter-press of tlie paper,—
though the latter Is equal to that of any
similar publication on the continent,
Tho publishers of Gripavu making t-x
tensive improvements lor 188(1. The old
cover Is to be discarded, and the journal
will hereafter comprise ]'2 pages, and be
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper,—every number being so artisticallv
executed as to compart' favorably with
tho best papers on the continent. The
advts, will bo compressed and more systematically arranged: whllo similar improvements will be made as to the letterpress, A new and handsome design will
adorn tho title page; while tho Cartoons
will certainly not suffer from extensive
Improvements In the nrtlstlc department.
Tlio price of Grip will hereafter be $2 a
year, whioh ts" torpor tJiah-4h.it of any
fiaper of Its kind lu America,—most o'f

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LIMITED.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tho ColumiuaN' Newspapor and
Printing Concern wns purelinsed by n
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known ns tlio
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited,?' The concern lias been for
nearly a year owned nnd controlled hy
tho British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vanconver. Tlie object of
thn now company is to continue the publication of the British CoiA'MitlAN news*
paper und carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso individual interest it will bo
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. There, will bo no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion nnd
provincial politics, and will devoto itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may he considered in the public interest.
The concern is now entirely separato from
any other business, tho hook and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T, K,
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name, and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for publlo patronage on the ground thnt it is engaged in
nn enterprise calculated to promote tho
public welfare. It nsks that the Columbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its policy is
eucuusistt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all nc*
counts duo tho concern must hu settled
without delay so that tho books of the
former company may bo adjusted and
dosed. Address all communications and
remittances to

The Security offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business in Canada,
It lias no schemes of Insurance, bnt the
well-established lines, hence the policy

Its statements to the public can be readily understood, its cash statement showing every Item of Income nnd how expended.
Its position Is ascertained annually from

of liability Is included.
Its progress has been unexampled In

0aN4diakFailures.--The total failures in the Dominion of Canada for the
first half of the year 1887, according to
the returns of Dunn, Wiman & Co.,
foot; up to 721 in number, as compared
with C09 in the first half of 1880. The
liabilities allow a very marked increase.
For the first six mouths of 1887 thoy
amount to over $10.(i!>3,000, as compared with $5,600,000 in the first six
montha of 1886, The increase is largely attributable to tho banking and
lumber failures in New Brunswick.
Leaving these out, the increase in
liabilities would not be so marked,
though still considerable.
Pbomotiok.—The announcement of
Mr. H. B. W. Aikman'a appointment
as a member of the Dominion land
board at Winnipeg, has given general
satisfaction and that gentleman's many

province since 1882, and for a timo
waa a member of the legal firm of
Drake, Jackson and Aikman. He was
appointed registrar general for the province, which position ho creditably
held for many years. Being tendered
tbe office of Dominion land agent he
accepted, and has held the same for
over three years. Whon the offices
were removed to New Westminster ho
repaired thither with his family, much
to the regret of their friends. The op
pointment is a deserved one and Mr.
Aikman has our sincero congratulations.—Colonist.

In connection with tho above paragraph a reporter of the Columbian interviewed Mr. Ohisholm. Mr. Chis-

The Kootenay Indians.—Thogov-
eminent yesterday received advices
from Dr. Powell, Indian agent for
British Columbia, that the commission
whioh had gone into Kootenay in order
to inquire into and if possible amicably
settle the threatened uprising uf Chief
Isidore's tribe and other Kootenay
Indians, had arranged matters with the
belligerent Isidore. Tho commission
consisted of Dr. Pnwell, A. W, Vowel). S.M., and Col. Uerchimcr, uf the
mounted police. Dr. Powell nrrivod
in Golden on Monday and yesterday
advised the government that satisfactory arrangements had been made with
Isidore, whereby, among other things,
he bound himself to deliver up Cup-
Inn, the rescued prisoner, whenever
required. This obviates tho necessity
of sending in the mounted police in
order that the settlers might have protection and the uprising suppressed.
Dr. Powell is en route fur Victoria,
Judge Vowell remained at Wild Hor bo
Greek, and Col. Heruhiiner returns
home.—Colonist.
Horrible Discovery.- A dispatch
from Nashville, Tenu., dated the 30th
ult., says: "The people uf this section aro excited over a ghastly discovery made in a cave on Monday near
Cookville, on what was known many
years ago as tlio Kentucky stock road.
This was at that time tho principal
highway for traders between Kentucky
and Georgia or South Carolina. A
few days ago a parly proceeded to explore tho cave. At the bottom cf tho
shaft tho party found human holies,
and with a little digging in the debris
that had accnmulati'd at this.poiut unearthed about sixty skeletons of men
who had been murdered and thrown
into this hole. Some skull* wore
found with bulletliule* through them,
others being mashed with an axe or
instrument of that kind. Old citizens
sty that the keepers of these dens
would keep track of the travellers
when they passed through with stock,
and on their return they would be almost certain to disappear, Thero is
another cave 20 miles from Cookvillo
near one of the ancient inns, and an
exploration of it will be made.
Tub Loan By-Law.—Last night
action was taken before Mr. Justice
McCroight to quash tho loan by law
just passed by the city council, steps
to this end having been taken by Mr.
Smithera, for whom Mr. E. A. .Tonus
appeared as attorney. * Arguments
were continued until midnight, when
it was deemed best to adjourn the
case; and as the judge has to go to
Vanoouver this morning, aud has to
proceed from that oity to Victoria, it
will be some time before the arguments
can be completed. From remarks
made during the hearing it is inforrcd
that the judge believes tho amendment
to the municipalities act under which
the vote was restricted does not properly apply until next December, and
that persons otherwise qualified should
not have been exoluded from voting
under that amendment. Messrs. Corbould & McColl, who, with Mr. Atkinson, appeared for the corporation,
have advised the council to submit the
by-law again and to accept the votes
of all persons qualified under the old
acts. This, it is held, wilt remove
any doubts that may exist respecting
the validity of the by-law, and will be
the simplest way out of the difficulty.
Joseph Rnsan, Percy, writes: "I was
induced to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil
for a lameness which troubled me for
three or four years, and found it the
host article I ever tried. It has been a
great blessing to me." Beware of similarly named articles; they are imitations
nt Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil.

There is a Wide Difference between
medicines which affect merely tlie symptoms of disease and those which hfleet its
cause. Tho-first arc useful ns palliat.es,
the second, if of genuine efficacy, produce a radical cure. To the latter class

PROTEST FROM THE CITIZENS
To the Mayor and Council, City of New
Westminster ;
GENTLEMEN.-Wo, (ho undersigned,
bog most respectfully to protest against
tho Lonu Bylaw, 1887, being dually adopt*
td. Wo object to it on many grounds,
but It may bo stilllelent to say, among
other tliiugs. that wo strongly object to
the Bylaw being acted upon when so
many largo property owners wero, by
what we consider an erroneous view of
the law, excluded from voting. Wo are
very adverse to nny litigation, and shall
only resort to that when compelled to do
so. Therefore It is thnt we now request
that the Bylaw may not be further proceeded with.
We are. Gentlemen,
