rioh man were satisfied.—Philadelphia Bulletin.

the miners' strike.
Readino, Pa., Fob. 14.—The reports received to-day from the coal region indicate that the resumption of

and that notwithstanding the efforts of
strike leaders to repair their fences,
the men will avail themselves of the
of the openings whicli aro being presented to return to work. Eleven collieries of the Philadelphia and Reading
Coal and Iron Company are in operation, each with an increased force.
Tho policy will be pursued of only
starting up such collieries whero the
miners show a disposition to abandon
the strike. A large increase in the
working force of the Brookside colliery
has absolutely onded the ttriko in the
Williams Valley, nnd tho resumption
is expected to bo complete in a few
days in tho entire western Schuylkill
district. At Keely snd tho William

men havo applied for work than oould

is working uml shipping enni to dny.
Increased shipments nf anthracite coat

plained thnt in his recent statement to
the linua' that the government had not
{iledged itself to military aotion in be-
ralf of any European power, he also
wished it lo bo understood that no
nnval action hnd been placed beyond
the treaties known to tbo country.
He said none existed. Ho declined to
produce the correspondence which had
passed between tho English government and other European governments
on the ground that ho did not deem it
advisable to do so. In reply to a
question from Mr. Labouchere, Sir
James Ferguson snid ho could not say
at this time whether any engagement
othor than a treaty ono hnd boon made
by tho covorninent. Sir Georgo
Trevelyan, resuming the debate on tho
address, declared that tho conviction
of 12 members of the house of commons undor tho crimes act would do
more than anything else to effect a
settlement of tho Irish question. Tho
country hnd seen that Irishmen could
bo nrrested in England for crime
created by tho coercion act, n crime
which did not oxist, under English
law, nnd for which an Englishman
could not bo arrcstod nnr a foreigner
surrendered. The liberal unionists
who had formorly advocated local government in Ireland woro now silent.
Major Saunderson said that Mr. Parnell's attack upon the government last
evening, wss the weakest ht had im

was fighting. The Parnellites wet*
never law-abiding people, and never
could be. Irishmen did not naturally
sympathize with tho law, and that mt
one of the defects of the race to which
he himself belonged. Concluding he
asked whether tho moral law of tht
Gladatonians, "Thou shalt not steal,
except from the landlords," was likely
to educate tho moral sense of the people? Mr. Thomas W. Russel, member
for South Tyrone, spoko at great
length in favor of the Irish policy of
the government. He urged Mr. Balfour to go straight ahead, pay attention to nothing outside of the law, and
shut his eyes to the pestilential notion
that tho commoners and priests should
receive different treatment from that
given to peasants. Mr. Labouchere
made a scathing attack upon the government in connection with the Mitchelstown affair, and demanded a
searching enquiry.

Wednesday Evening. Feb. II, ISSS.
The Chler or Police.
The opinion seems to prevail very
intensively in this city that the
council has made a mistake in dis-
charging Mr. Devlin and abolishing
the office of chief of police. For
many years tbe city wns protected
by constables who acted more in tbe
Ciipiicity of watchmen then detectives, and every one knows bow
many times tbo city by-laws Were
set nt doiianUo with impunity.
The police committee last year decided that the polico system ought
to bo plunged. They combined tho
offices of lock-up keeper ami chief of
police, and were fortunate enough
to secure tho servioes of Mv. Devlin,
an experienced officer who then
held the responsible position of 0.
P. It. detective. The new arrange;
ment bas given great satisfaction to
the city generally. Mr. Devlin bus
made it bis duty to see that the by
laws were enforced, and in doing so
has doubtless brought upon himself
the displensUro of some people who
had come to bclievo themselves
privileged to break or keep tbe law
jast ns the circumstances suggested.
It is said that somo timo ago tho
chief ordered some wagons lo be removed which had been habitually
occupying n portion of Columbia
street; but thoso wagons happened
to belong to a councillor who wns
very active in promoting Mr. Devlin's dismissal on Monday night.
The plea put forward by the councillors in justification of their aotion
is economy. But is it certain tbat
the plea is well founded! Mr.
Devlin received ?80 per month.
In consideration of this sum he performed the duties of lock-up keeper,
chief of police, clerk of the police
court, and constable. The council
is now trying to secure a keeper for
tbe lock-up at §30 a month; tbe salary paid to tho clerk of the police
court was §10 u month; so that tbe
city will actually save only §20 per
month, for which it loses tbo services of n valuable detective and
constable. Moreover, Mr. Devlin
frequently acted as prosecutor in the
police court, and his knowledga and
experience in matters of thut kind
enabled him to conduct his crises
with much success. If the city had
provided and paid for counsel in
these cases the cost would probably
have considerably exceeded $20 a
month. It is one thing to be a
constable, und quite another thing
to be a detective. The two gentlemen left on the police forco may be
everything one could desire in as
far as the duties that aro laid upon
them demand; but surely it is of
very great importance that we
should have at least one man on the
force who has had some experience
and possesses a fair  knowledge  of
"""detective work. In this department
Mr. Devlin has mado himself most
useful, as the readers of tho Columbian know from events which took
plncoduringthe year. The police committee last year, we are informed,wns
unanimously and entirely satisfied
with Mr. Devlin's official conduct,
and both the mayor and Mr. Shiles,
who were members of last year's
council, protested against his dismissal on Monday night. If it is the
intention of tho council to relapse
into tho old usages, and permit the
by-laws to be broken with impunity,
it is just as well to dispense with
the chief. And, indeed, it looks as
if this might be the council's intention. We aro told that several of
the saloons were selling openly Inst
Sunday, notwithstanding the by-law
which still stands on tho books; and
the mayor intimated that he had instructed the city solicitor not to proceed in tho caso of Cumin for the
present! If a majority of the mem
bers of the council arc of opinion
that it is right and commendable
for the saloons to carry on business
on Sunday, lot them repeal the law;
but while the law stands let it bo
enforced. We venture to predict
that there will be no prosecutions
under the Sunday closing by-law
this year. Mr. Elliott took occasion to express the opinion that the
oity iB becoming too moral, and this
opinion he seemed to regard us sufficient justification for tbo dismissal
of the chief of police. There havo
beon very few cases before tbe police
court for a long timo, and tlie revenue from that source has greatly
fallen off. Porhaps Mr. Elliott has
perceived this, and he thinks if the
watchful eye of tho chief is closed
there may be multiplied inducements for evil-disposed persons to
commit breaches of law, and police
court business may improve. Mr.Elliott intimated that morality was not
good for business; and when a man
feel) that the moral tone of tbe community ia hurting his business ono
naturally begins to wonder what sort
of a business he runs! Will Mr.
Elliott be good enough so tell us of
a eity or an individual that was
ever ruined because of the practice
of morality! Such declarations are
limply childish, and they will be
applauded only by the wont classes
of moiety. There are two classes of
people in every community: ono
seeking to elevate public sentiment
and instill into the minds of men a
higher conception of their dignity
and destiny) the othor influenced by
nothing    b*i   telfithness—caring

A Texas Story.
In the summer of 18li0, on a hot night in
1 July, a herdsman wus moving ids cattle to a
. new ranch farther north, near Helens, Texas.
t As he passed dowu tlie bunks of it stream,
■his herd became mixed with other cuttle
[thatwere crazing in tho valley, nnd some
[ of them filled to bo separated.   The iiertr
i day, about noon, a band of Texas rangers
overtook the herdsman and demanded tlieir
cattle, which they said were stolen.   It was
before the days of laws and court-houses iu
' Texas, aud one hnd better kill livo men tlinn
steal a mule worth five dollars; und this
' herdsman knew il.   He tried to explain, but
they told him to eut his story snort,   lie
oflered to turn over all the cattle not bis
own; but they laughed at his proposition,
and hinted that tbey usually contiscuted the
whole herd in suoh cases, and that they
usually left the thief hanging on a tree as a
warning to others.  Tbe poor fellow wns
completely overcome. They consulted apart
• n few monienuj. atuUlfeu|j?ld bini, jf.hc liad
' any explanations to make or business to do,
1 thar would allow him ten minutes to do it
nml to defend himself.  He turned to the
rough faces aud commenced :—
"How many of you men have wives?"
Two or three nodded. How many of you
men hove children?" Two or three nodded
ueaiu. "Then 1 know you'll hear me," said
uiie frightened herdsman;."! never stole
your cuttle. I have lived in these parts
|over three years. 1 came here from New
LHampshire; I failed there in the fall of '57,
"during the panic. A ,h*»ve been saving; I
have Rved on hard nre, I have slept on tht
ground; I have no home here. My family
.stay Eut, while I go from place to place.
[Days Hem like month! to me, and months
Hike Tears; and, but for the letters from
drome''—here he pulled out a handful of
•well-worn envelopes and letten from his
wife—"I should net discouraged. I have
paid part of my debts. Here are the receipts;" and he unfolded tho letters of
[acknowledgement. "I expected to sell out
land go home in November. Here is the
'Testament my good old mother gave me;
were Is my little girl's picture," and he kiss.
\ei lt tenderly. 'Now, men, If yon have decided to kill me for doing what I am innocent of, send these home, aad send as much
as you can tram the cattle, when I am dead.
.Can't yon and half their value 1 ily family
[will need It,"
"Hold on now; stop right there!" aalda
rough ranger. "I say, boys, he's no thief,
That Hnd of man don't steal. Well take
our cattle asd let him go. Give us your
hand, old boy; that picture and them letters
did the business. You can go free, but
you're lucky."
"Let's do more than that," said a man in
Texan garb and carrying the customary brace
of pistols in his belt, "let's buy his herd, and
let him go home bow.';
, They did; aad, when the money wai paid
over and the man about to start, he wu too
weak to stand, Aa hour later, however, he
left on horseback for tho nearest itage
route; sad, u they shook hands when
bidding bim good-by, a happier band ol men
was seldom seen.

It Ii Ufa to lay that tht. sardines of
Ueislna art not to ho surpassed, though
they miy possibly be equaled. Like Green-
wich whitebait, they are rather a specialty
Df the place. The waiter breathes a shrill
whisper through the speaking tube which
communicates from tbe ground floor to tho
kitchen. A satisfactory response comes
rery promptly In the shape of a faint sound
Df moling. As the whitebait are merely
immersed for eome time in a wirework cage
in boiling oU, eo tht urdlaea are' sent up
with startling celerity, coutderlag tha
Italian habit ol procrastination. *
The tiny Hsh, delicately browned, are
lerved on a soft bed of frluled parsley. By
wiy ol condiment, thu* la simply a siloed
lemon, and the result Is ao tempting, so
fragrantly appetising, that you scarcely take
lime to disengage the fish from the bones,
Should you havo followed np the sardines
by the veil cutlet the welter will surely
tave recommended, or by what hole plowed
lo call a Met, you will have cause to repeat
it, though the mm Is aot to be blanieu for
luggesting them, as both dishes are popular
• ith the ordinary patrons. If you are wise
rou have ordered green peu or asparagus,
vhlch sum to flourish in the Sicilian gardens
ill the year round.
After these you cau hardly do better than
rail for macaroni a la citma or with tomato
auee, having taken the precaution pt waning Ihe cook to boll the macaroni sufficient-
y. Should the quails ohanee to be in, they
re sure to be plump and delicate; the
hlokens, which may be fried In sweet oil,

it i> no uncommon tiling to bent the
remark, "Thero iu no profit In poultry,"
but that should be taken with great al-
owunco. The various conditions that
rrssist In any such conclusion rutty bo
such as would bo vory likely to cause
failure in any othor branch of farming
operations.
In the flrst place, In order to socuro
success in poultry mining, there must be
the same degree of. attention.and care
that would be given to stock raising or
the growing of crops, with this very
distinct ana important dillcrenre, that
the best attention should in' paid ut the
season of the year when it cun best bo
dono, and when such attention secures
llie best results, i'oiiitry should be
provided with a warm house tlmt hus an
exposure to the sun during tliu duy, so
that on cold days thoy may enjoy the
luxury of its-rays. It sliou.tl hnve a dry
Door, over which, anrl cs|recinily under
the perches, should bo apiuml dry sand
or sawdust, in which they ennscrituh
und so get exercise. Kxcrcise is very
esseutiul to health, nnd to the production
of eggs, and so some scutior Knives so
that Kens are con::e!'ird to scratch for
their food. In the winter, when hens
are confined almost wholly to the houso,
the food should possess as great variety
as is possible, us this tends to tho best
production of eggs.
It is an indisputable assertion thut if
there is a prolit co niug from the cure of
hens it must bo largely trado up in
winter, and hence if tire teed is given in
variety, chopped .rppli'S,cal,l)iige, turnips,
etcv with scraps of iircrrit und grains of
various kinds supplemented witii skimmed milk warmed for their use aud broken
shells to assist digestion and form the
shells of the eggs, satisfactory results will
follow.
An occasional feed of scalded meat,
salted a little, with a good sprinkling of
pepper or mnslurd. will produce good results. Or let some corn ire sot over the
lire to boil awhile in water in whioh a
pepper pod has beta placed and the eli'ect
will be lelt in egg production.
The Secret at II.
An old farmer being asked why his
boys stayed at home when others did
not, replied that it was owing to tho tact
that ho always tried to make home
pleasant for them. Ho furniihed them
with attractive and useful reading, and
when night came and the day's labor was
ended, instead of running with other
boys to the railway station and adjoining
towns, they gathered around the great
lump, and became absorbed in their
books and papers. His boys were still
at home when the oldest was 21, while
those who were furnished with no reading at home, sought city life and city
dissipations as soon us they were seventeen or eighteen. All will do well to
heed this testimony of a fanner who has
known how hard the struggle for a footing on a froo soil without capital, is, and
how valuable and comparatively cheap
tire the aids which good reading brings to
him. In this age of general intelligence,
the mind must be catered to, and books
and papers furnished; ana, not only
this, but in this age of cheap and artistic
chromos, pictures ean also be bought to
use in making home attractive. The
farmer's life is the most independent of
any and there is no reason whv it may
not be as attractively surrounded.
Liming Meadows.
"Liming meadows or old pasture
with sav thirty bushels to the acr
an eltect upon tlio condition of tbe crop
of grass that few farmers would believe
without giving it a trial. In fact, we do
not know how the same amount of money
trim lie expended upon land with the
same profit. It is not only certain, nut
lusting. We have known farmers to
pasture meadows fifty years without being turned up by the simple application
of limo once in six or ten years. These
postures, which are regarded as permanent and mostly abound in clay mounds,
after being grazed down thoroughly, are
restored knee deep in from five to six
weeks. We do not hesitate to say that
nowhere has lime a more marked effect
and con be used with better result than
in the renovation of old pastures."
Galls on Work-Horses.
Theso are liable to appear on hones
newly put to work, or on those breaking
in a new harness, or saddle. A few days
rest until tho abraded parts heal and
harden should be allowed if possible.
Nothing will cause a fresh and bleeding
f;ull to dry up and cicatrise so soon as a
ittlo table salt sprinkled upon it' To
prevent white hair, a mixture of burned
leather, lard and gunpowder is valuable.
The introduction ol the ensilage system
not only increases the value of corn as a
special plant Ior that purpose, bnt it WIU
adil largely to the Interests of cattle,
probumy leading to the establishment of
tho soiling system in preference to
pasturage, over the whole country.
Tim horse which can plow an acre
while another is plowing half an acre, or
tbat which can carry a loadol passengers
ten miles while another is going live, independent of nil considerations of amusement ttiste, or that which is generally
called fancy, is absolutely worth twice as
much to hirowner as the other.
Tub following general rules will apply
in the selection of calves to be raised for
dairy cows r The head should not be over
large, the neck thin rather than thick,
anrl the akin possessing a soft feel that
cau ouly be judged by an expert. Look
to the escutcheon and milk veins. These
are as good indications of character as
tlie pedigree.
Mr. J. B. Lawm acknowledges tbat
greater fertility is Imparted to the land
by plowing under green crops than to
applving the same alter they bid been
led to stock, but thinks it more profitable
to adopt the latter method, Yet, where
there is but little demand for meat it
will be found an advantage to plow under
the green crop.
A wbitkk in a scientific journal ridicules
the idea that apples sweat, and thit they
must undergo a sweating process before
they are put in barrels in order to keep
well. He states that only injury comes
from leaving apples in piles in an orchard,
and that tne moisture found on them
comes from the atmosphere. He recommends placing them In a barrel as soon
as they are picked.
Whbn pullets aro forced to lay early,
by stimulants or highly concentrated
food, It is an injury, aa it taxes the vitality. A pullet that is forced will lay very
small eggs for a while, and when she
ceases, in order to nest, she will not begin
again as soon as n matured hen. She becomes prematurely old, and does not
proye on the average aa profitable as
when she is given ample time to mature
before beginning lo lay.    j_

Kilted by a Falling Tree.
During the heavy wind atorm last
week while two sons of Robert Gardner, of Johnson's Landing, were driving through the wodda n gigantic fir
tree was up-rooted by the force of the
wind and fell directly across the horses
backs, crushing them to death instantly. The boyB had a very narrow and
most marvellous escape from death
They were sitting in the sleigh with a
blanket over their knees and a hugh
limb fell between them splitting the
blanket and smashing the sleigh, but
the boya escaped without receiving any
injury. The team was a very valuable
one. and ono of the best in the town-
The t'liornl I nion Concert.
A small but appreciative audience
greeted the Choral Union last night at
tho opera house. The programme was
au excellent one, woll carried out and
gavo tho most entire satisfaction to
everyone. Except iu the matter of finances, the concert was the most successful yet given by tho union. The ballads
were excellently rendered, but tho singing of Mesdoines Moresby, Lyal and
Sillitoe, Miss Sutherland and Mr. Hamber deserves particular mention, all of
whom received a woll deserved encore,
"Slow in tho Eastern Sky" aud the selections from "The Sleeping Beauty," sung
by the entire-company, woro given in
excellent stylo and denoted the perfection of training. Tho general impression
loft by tho outer tain ment of lust night
was that the union showed to better advantage than ever beforo, the attack,
time'and finish were almost perfection,
and the voices seemed so nicely blended
that it would be diflicult to find fault
with them. Hia Lordship Bishop Sillitoe conducted the concert and must have
been highly gratified at the success attained by his pupils. After the concert
the floor was cleared and dancing indulged in by tlie young peoplo for a
couple of hours.
The Provincial Legislature.
Monday whs devoted chiefly to skirmishing. The speaker decided that
Mr Humphreys' motion of iihpreooh-
ment against Hon. Mr. Dunstnulr waa
entirely in the hands of tho house. It
was agreed tlmt Mr. Humphreys
should go on with it on Friday. Mr.
Humphreys then moved for a return
of all revenue warrants issued out of
the treasury during 1887, and up to
date. The government objected to
this motion on tho ground that it involved a largo expenso which was entirely unnecessary as these documents
would be placed in the hands of the
publio accounts committee where every
opportunity would be «iven to examine
them. Tho opposition endeavored to
make it appear (hat this was stifling
enquiry, and so on, but the resolution
was defeated by the usual vote 17 to 7.
Mr. Humphreys then brought forward
a stuck of resolutions callimr for returns, some of which wero carried and
some wero not. The member for Oomox
ia, apparently, anxious to make it appear that he is running the whole eon
oern, and aome of his motions wore of
the most frivolous kind. For example,
he moved for h return of "alldocumonta
whatever connected with the land recently surveyed by John Gray in Comox," to whicli the chief commiaaioner replied that " there had been no land
survuy in Comox 1" On motion of Mr.
Orr, seconded by Mr. Ladner, a committee waa appointed to enquiro
whether any bona fide or other occupants who have mado improvements on
Granville lots have received or been
refused to puroha-JQ tlieir locutions.
In the house yeaterday the finance
minister presented the public accounts
to the 31st December, and tho chiuf
commissioner uf lauds and works presented his roport for tho year 18S7.
Mr. Beaven naked tho government to
give tho house information in respect
to tho changes made iu tho cabinet
during receaa. Mr. Robson replied
that the cabinet was composed of five
members in accordance with tho policy
announced by the premier nt the last
session. Mr. Davie was an unofficial
member of the executive, performing
the work belonging to the attorney-?
feneial'a department. In apuaking
Ir. Beaven alluded to Mr. Vernon ns
the gentleman who would not support
the govern in out of which he wna not a
member. Mr. Vernon denied the
statement and Mr. Beaven produced a
letter aignetj by a party in whose presence the alleged statement was Baid lo
have been mnde, but Mr. Vernon still
still denied it and anid tho whole tiling
was childish und absurd. A bill to
prevent the spread of contagious dis
eattes among horses passed iis second
reading. Mr. Humphreys moved fur
the returns in connection with the actions against tho sureties for the C. P.
R. Mr. Dunsmuir has intimated his
intention of asking tho house to adopt
the British Mining Act complete.
P, Burrows, of Wilkcsport, writes
that he waa cured of a very dangerous
case of inflammation of the lnngs, solely
by the use of live bottles of Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil. Fools great pleasuro
in recommending it to the public, as he
had proved it (For many of tho diseases
it mentions to cure) through his frionds,
end in nearly every instance it was effectual. Do not he deceived by anv
imitations of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil.
Be suro you get the genuine.
CORRESPONDENCE.
After the Boys.
Editor Columbian.--The boys of this
city are becoming utterly unondurable,
in their rudness, impudence-—nay, downright blackguardism. Any daily frequenter of our streets will bear me out
in this sweeping declaration. If—as
seems to bo tbe case—their parents cannot, or will not, control thein, in the interests of propriety and decency, it is
Jigh time—more than time, for the polico to tako the matter in hand. Asa
sample of youthful rowdyism, look at
last Saturday. That day was the New
Year's Doy of our Chinese neighbors,
As is customary, many white ladies and
gentlemen called upon* their Chinese acquaintance. But these visitors found it
diflicult nnd dangerous to eyes, limbs,
and clothing, to pass along the streot in
the Chinese quarter, owing to the crowds
of turbulent young imps letting off firecrackers and insulting adult passers.
However, I suppose that boys will always indulge iu setting off crackers
whenever the latter con be had; although,
in most custom towns, the firing of
crackers in the street is strictiy forbidden. But this was not tho worst of it,
on Saturday. Then thero might have
been seen tho shops and residences of
numerous Chinamen invaded by noisy
and impudent hosts of boys, and highly
respectable and wealthy Chinese merchants pulled and handled by theirqueues
and clothing by these yonng outlaws,
clamoring all tho timo for drinks, oigars,
matches, aud confectionary. It waa
truly outrageous. Where were the
police? Where they usually arc on auch
occasious. But if one of these Chinamen,
thus goaded and tormented, had ventured to take the law into his own hands,
in his own defence, the polico would
soon have found him—never fear. Those
Chinamen nre entitled to the same protection and care as the white residents
of tho city; and it ia n scandal and a
shame that they do not receive it. As
for the boys of Westminster, they will
soon render the place uninhabitable to
adults.   Yours, H.
Westminster, Feb. 13:1888.
