England and Ireland,
The attempted enforcement of
the coercion law in Ireland recalls
the old and familiar story. It would
be wholly disheartening except for
the great and significant facts that
for the first time the Irish party is
an English party, led by able and
earnest statesmen, and that for the
lirst tjme also tho record of Irish
history is unrolled, before English
eyes. Nothing is more striking
in the debate—which is said to
have aroused as bitter and intense
unimousity as has been ever known
in England—than the frank confessions of Englishmen that they
had never really considered the
question before, and had accepted
the current tradition. as' correct.
The strongest arguments for home
rule are .drawn from; the writings
upon the condition and history of
Ireland of those who now ardently
oppose the Irish movement, -which
haa become almost an English rather than an Irish question. ■ Mr.
Parriell has been long silent anil
withdrawn. The Irish members of
parliament are heard from only in
opposing evictions. The general
publio discussion proceeds all over
England, and is conducted by the
chief English orators and leaders,
aud there is plain evidence that the
appeal to the judgment of England
is resulting favorably to Ireland.
The chief allegation against Mr.
Gladstone and his friends is that
they are practically seeking dismemberment of the empire. Their
reply is that, on the contrary, the
only way to maintain the union
peacefully is to remove the reasons
for hostility to it. They do not
deny that there is a section of Irishmen who desire separation. But it
is a small one. and has visibly diminished since the prospect of
favorable aotion- The bulk of the
Irish know that separation is impossible, and if practicable would
greatly injure their markets; and as
a question of policy the English
home-rulers ask whether the desire
of separation can be best met by
using the home-rule sentiment,
which, although nationalist, is con-
situtional and not separatist, or by
driving it to the extreme and irre
concilable side, Again, to the argument that Irish hatred of England is irreconcilable, and that the
concession, of home rule would
lead to its complete gratification, the English home-rulers
reply that Irish hate is exaggerated,
and springs from hostility to an
English official system. This hatred would necessarily decline with
the removal of the obnoxious system. Once more, the agrarian discontent is really due—and of that
there is no question—to the congestion or over-crowding of certain
districts. The only remedy is a
large emigration. But this, as Mr.
Morley says that his experience as
Irish Secretary taught him, can be
effected only by Irish authority
sustained by Irish opinion. Otherwise it would be only an Acadian
expatriation. But the strong practical argument lies in tho necessity
of recognizing the nutionul sentiment
of Ireland, and giving it fair and
adequate play. Government, to be
satisfactory, must be not for the
people ouly, but by the people.
Mr. Morley quotes the words of Mill
in his representative government,
which aro full of practical political
wisdom: "It is nn inherent condition of human affairs that on intention, however sincere, of protecting
the intersests of others can make it
safe or salutary to tie up their own
hands. Still more obviously true is
it that by their own hands only can
any positive and durable improvement of thoir circumstancesin life bo
worked out." Even Mr. Dicey, the
ablest and fairest of the opponents
of home rule, admits that England
no less than Ireland "has suffered
under a political arrangcinont hy
which legal union has failed to
secure moral union," and he concedes that "one part of the United
Kingdom" (meaning Ireland) is
ruled "on principles which no one
would venture to apply to the government of any other part of it." The
English liome-rulors of to-day seek
to secure the union by removing the
reasons of the hatred. The disappearance of Mr. Gladstone from
the scene would be a serious blow
to the home-rule cause, and there is
no present prospoct of any relaxations of the alliance between the
"dissentient liberals" and tho tory
government. But the leaven is
rapidly working among the English
peoplo, and it is certainly probable
that some sort of Irish home rule
will be adopter! before many i years,

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
ENGLIHH COMMENTS ON THE PRESIDENT'S
MESSAGE.
London, Dec. C—The Standard,
says tho measage is based on financial
principles, the soundness of which it is
impossible successfully to dispute. It
marks tbe revolutionary starting point
in fiscal controvetsinB in the United
States, but whether it will bring about
an immediate new departure in thoir
fiscal policy will depend upon tbe recaption congress gives -to the spirited
protest of trio president.
The Pod Bays; The message will
produce a profound sensation in
Europe equally with America and will
strengthen the cause of free traders
throughout the world.".
The Daily News says: "Seldom has
nn American president had a more important or impressive leBson to teach.
The fact is, though Mr. Cleveland
makes a pretence of shutting his eyes
to it, that the policy of protection has
been reduced to a practical and
theoretical absurdity. The stone is
now set rolling, and will not atop until the idol'protection' is broken to.
pieces."
The Chronicle says: "It is many
years since an important and suggestive message has been sent to congress.
If the policy of tho president ia adopted, its effect upon the trade of the
world cannot fail to be immense."
CABINET COUNCIL  MEETING.
London, Dec. C—The cabinet
council remained in session from 12:30
until 2 o'clock this afternoon, tho
timo being devoted wholly to tlio, discussion of Irish matters. Lord Salisbury and Mr. Balfour came down from
Hattiold together to attend the meeting and it is understood that the re
commendations of the latter were
adopted without dissent, though the
nature of tho suggestions has not yet
beon made public.
MASTER OF THE   SITUATION.
Pahis, Dec. C—President Oarnot
appears to be more than ever master
of tho situation. His insistance upon
tho cohesion of the ropulicans hat met
with general acquiescence on the .part
of the leaders of the groups, and the
pledgo of support to Uie new executive
by M. Olemoneau, removes any possibility of an opposition strong enough
to obstruct besinesu or cause tho
government to serve in the slightest degree from its conservative policy.
A LARGE    PURCHASE.
St. Paul, Dec. C- Charles E. Par-
ont, now in St. Paul in the interest of
a syndicate) of English and American
capitalists has just completed tbe purchase of a large tract of irons lands in
tho Lake Superior region. It involves the practical control of nearly all
the most valuable iron-producing
country on the Vermilion range. Besides the purchase money, which amounts to fivo million dollars, a capital
not only sufficient to develop the
mines, but also to construct a railroad,
if necessary, is gauranteed.
A BLUE NOSE MISSING.
New York, C—The government of
Nova Scotia offers a reward of $500
for information that will lead to the
discovery of Josoph Preston of Halifax, if he is alivo, and $100 for information concerning him if he is dead.
Preston is a relative of Monsignor
Preston of Now York Roman Catholic diocese, and son of a wealthy Halifax merchant. Ho is uot of strong
mind. He disappeared from a hotel
in this city whilo travelling. It is
feared that he was robbed and perhaps
murdered. He is 22 yenrs old, 5 feet
7 inches high, sallow, with small
brown moustache aud dark hair, and'
weighs 135 pounds.
DINED AND WINED,
Washington, Dec. 0.—Earl Craven
bas been in town for a week or two
past and bits been much lionized. He
is a plensatit, gawky English boy of
about twenty and accompanied by his
turor, tho Rev. Mr. Stinert. He has
dined at tbo British legation and attended, as did Mr. Chamberlain, a
meeting of a dancing clues at Secretary
Whitney's, lie also accompanied
Secretary and Mrs. Whitnoy on an
excursion to Mount Vernon on the
"Despatch."
A SUCCESSFUL TEST.
New York, Dec. 6.—Tho second
test of the new dynamite shell invented by Lieut. Gordon was made at
Sandy Hook yostorday. Five steel
shells were fired. Tho first penetrated
n fifteen-inch turret target and exploded, demolishing tho target. Four
wore thon fired to determine the range
and demonstrate that by Gordon's
method of dynamite shells could be
propelled by ordinary black powder
from service guns, so as to obtain satisfactory penetration and destructive
power. The nrdnance board was much
pleased with the result.
THE LICK OBSERVATORY,
San Francisco, Doc 6.—Tho stool
tubing for the great Lick observatory
ou Mount Hamilton was shipped from
the mnnufaotory of Warner & Swasey,
Cleveland, Ohio, tbe first part of last
month.    Alvan Clark, jr.,  with the
fihotocraphic lens, was expected to
eavo Cambridgeport to-day, so that
tlio prospects aro that within. a fortnight at least all the important parts
necessary to complete tho great work
on which the trustees have been at
work bo long, will be on Mount Hamilton. Then not mure then two
weeks, it is calculated, will be required
to sot tlie great lens and arrange all
the fixtures for astronomical work, bo
that by New Year's day it ia hoped
that scientists may have an opportunity to see through the great telescope
the mysteries of the starry realm.
LIGHTING TBE DEEP.
Washington, Dec. 0.—An exjperi-
ment with incadescent electric lights
at the New York torpedo station has
shown that lamps of 100-candIe power,
submerged at twenty feet on a polt,
will bo illuminate the water that objects within the radius of 160 feet ean
be seen. This is believed,to be of
great value in searching for submarine
torpedoes.
THE PRESIDENT'S MESSAGE.
Washington, Dec. 0.— While the
President's message was not of an entirely1 unexpected character, yet the
Protectionists could not help being
startled at its bold sentences. The
greatest attention was accorded the
reading, particularly by the Republicans. Satisfaction was shown on the
face of every tariff reformer in tbe
house, and some of the enthusiasts
were almost hysterical in their suppressed feelings. The reading of tbe
President's message in the Senate was
listened to with attention, but vert
many of the senators, after the adjournment, upon being asked for their
opinion of the document, said they
porferred to examine it more closely
before declaring themselves. llie
judgment of the Senate may be summarized generally by stating tbat
Democrats pronounce it an able state
paper, whilst the Republicans say its
free trade message is intended to influence the houso in behalf of free
trade legislation.
PRESIDENTIAL NOMINATIONS.
Washington, Deo. C—The president has sent the following nomine-,
tions to the Senate: Lucius Q. C. Lamar to be Associate Justice of tbe
Supreme Court of the United States;
William F. Vilas to be Secretary of
the Interior; Don M. Dickinson to be
Postmaster General; Charles S. Fair-
child of New York to be Secretary of
the Treasury; George L. Rivers, New
York, to be Assistant Seoretary of the
Treasury; Sigourney Butler of Massachusetts to be Second Comptroller of
the Treasury, and James W. Hyatt, of
Connecticut, to be Treasurer of Ihe
United States.
""       GREAT STRIKE AT HAVANA
Havana, Dec. C.-^Ninety-(fiveocigtr
factories here shut down to-day, owing '
to the demands of cigarmakers for an .
increase in wages. A committee appointed by the manufacturers will issue a circular to-morrow inviting the
operatives to name a committee with a
viow to conciliating all interests involved. About 12.000 men are thro#u
out of employment by tho shut-down.
Nn disturbances are feared.
STEEL FOR CRUISERS.
Washington, Dec. 8.—The Steel
Board mot at the Navy Department today and considered certain propositions
coming from the contractors for supplying steel for the new cruisers now building and from department officers looking
to a modification of the testa now prescribed for the steel. After some diicus
sion, the requirements were amended in
several particulars. The modifications,
it is said, will not admit steel of lower
quality than that used at present, but
will result iu a reduction in the number
of tests, which is one of the objects
sought by tho steel-makers. A milder
and softer grado of metal than was originally required will also be accepted ror
the heavy crank-shafts, upon the suggestion of the manufacturers that it will
prove moro serviceable than the harder
metal.
Mr. W. R. Lazier, Bailiff, Ac., Belleville, writes: "I find Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil tbo best medicino I hare ever
used iu my stable. I have used it for
bruises, scratches, wind puffs and cats,
and in every case it gave the best satisfaction. We use it us a household remedy for colds, burns, kc, and it is a perfect panacea. It will remove waits hy
paring them down and applying it occasionally."

Spiriting of tlm proposed railway
extension from Esquimalt to the
straits, and the construction of a
road from Kalama to Port Angolos,
we expressed a doubt whether it
would ever become an accomplished
fact. Our friend of the Victoria
Times snappishly resents this expression of unbelief, nnd declares
that tho thing will certainly bo done,
and that "it will be a cold day now
when Viotoria gets left." Evidently our cotemporary is laboring under the impression that the Columbian istostile to tic scheme—an
impression for whioh it would certainly puzzlo him to find any ground
whateve-. If t'le scheme is carried
out, and proves of advantage to Es
quimalt, or Victoria, or nny other
part of British Columbia, we shall
certainly join hands with our Victoria cotemporary in celebrating the
event with becoming enthusiasm.
Because Victoria is notoriously selfish and sectional it does not follow
that the rest of the province is effected in the snme way.
The United States congress being now in session, all eyes are turned towards Washington. There aro
many matters of public interest
which will come up for decission at
the present session, and prominent
among them is tho question of tariff
reform. The surplus revenue for
the year is estimated at over $100,-
000,000. One would suppose it an
easy matter to ndjust tho fiscnl
balance, but there are so many conflicting interests to be considered
that hitherto the administration has
refrained from the undertaking.
The manufacturers and producers of
the United States are, as a rule, determined to maintain a high protective tariff; but there is a growing
demand among consumers, especially
in the northwestern states, for a
substantial reduction in the taxes
imposed by the customs department.
Monopolies die hard, and if congress
yields at all to the demand of the
consumers, there is likely to be
trouble. It is a very singular spec-
hole—a nation with more revenue
than it knows what to do with, and
afraid to out down the taxes because
the manufacturers demand protection!	
The bitterness of feeling exhibited by the Quebec mob towards the
Salvation Army has produced con-
liderable of a sensation throughout
the country. Any person who has
had experience of mobs either in
Quebec or Montreal knows something of their relentless cruelty towards the object of their hate, but
it is, fortunately, a rare thing to
witness the spectacle of a Canadian
city practically given over to rioters.
The methods of the Salvation Army
are certainly open to criticism, but
so long as their performances are
within the law, and injure no one,
they have a right to ask and expect
legal protection. The French Catholics object to these parades on the
ground that they are ridiculous and
the outward exhibition of a religious
delusion. But every man has a
right to his opinion. When the
Catholics of Quebec and Montreal
parade according to the customs of
their own religious system, their actions may appear just as absurd and
obnoxious as the Salvation Army's
performances seem to them. But
one may be the victim of a delusion
as well as the other; nnd if the right
to parade is secured to one, it must
be conceded to the other also. This
is a free country, in which religious
toleration has been secured by long
years of patient endurance, and we
ah..U be turning back the dial of
progress when we deny to any the
religious freedom we claim for ourselves, so lo lg as the public interest
is net endangered. If the Quebec
mob is permitted to put down the
Salvation Army by heartless brute
force, it becomes the governing power of the city, and no one can tell
in what direction its excesses may
next be manifested. It will be nn
unfortunate day for Quebec when
the mob comes to be recognized ns
the authority whieh shall determine
what may or may not be done with
propriety in the name of religion or
anything else. It is never safe to
lose sight of the principles of law
and justice. If Salvation Army
parades are not a breach of the law,
or an encroachment on the rights of
the people, they cannot be left to
be dealt with by the mob without
loosening the foundations upon
which our cherished personal liberties have been built. This is a principle agoinist which mobs nsunlly
sot themselves. When the Chinese
residents in one ol our own cities be
came obnoxious by reason of their
competition with other labor, the
same unlawful force was employed
to drive them away, and the same
danger of mob rale was invited. No
one denies that the presence of large
numbers of Chinese in any community is a great evil; but one cannot
safely set aside law and endanger
the liberty of the subject for the
purpose of redressing a grievance
either real or imaginary. Under
existing regulations, which are in
many respects very imperfect, we
must often suffer great evils; but
impulses which lead to acts of violence are dangerous counsellors,

The description of a very strange being
Ib related in a recent issue of the Atlanta
Constitution, who, when the torrid breath
| of summer is at its fiercest, remains
clothed in woolens and experiences no
) inconvenience unless it be through lack
of warmth; while in tho moat frigid
winter weather ho becomes heated and
oppressed as tliough suffering this effects
of n torrid wave. According to (he account this peculiarity has been his form

utterly failed to devclopo tho cause at
his strange condition.
Trii; superintendent of telegraphs at
Home has just issued an order forbid-
ing the employment of women in the
olliees. Tho reasons for this backward
step are nut given, and are unknown.
There lias been no complaint against
the female oinploycs of tho telegraph
Iplati'ins. On the contrary they have acquitted themselves tor the' general satis.
; fartiun, showing great capacity and assiduity. In fact they have proved them*
selves model administrators, not justifying a single ono of the malign pre*
dii lions made when this innovation wag
adopted. It would seem that the Italian
Government has by no means freed itself of the elements of old-fogyism.
"F.d." and "radclliU."
A word that is often hoard in English
political talk is "fad". It has hardly yet
(omul its way into the dictionaries, hut
"rails" are many, and "faddists" and "fad-
mongers" abound. Mr. Sala has suggested that tne word is s corruption ol
"fuddle," to dandle—In French, dorlotor,
A "faddist" is continually dandling and
caressing his "fad." It Is more probably
a contraction of "fidhd, a word that has
been long in use with much the same
meaning as "fad." Edward Moore, writing In The World In 1754, applies tho
word lo n very precise person — "The
roungest who thinks in her heart that
her sister is no betterthanaslottern,runs
into the contrary extreme, and is, in
everything she does, an absolute fidfad."
From "fidfad" in this sense to the modem
"fad" and "faddist" is not a very violent
transition. The tendency to abbreviation is very general _ ifoiiw Journal,

"The reason why so many pugilists are

the pugilist ih attempting to accomplish

Sir Henry Thompson, an eminent English physician, says: "I havo no hesitation in attributing a large portion of the

Garibaldi'. Remains.
A remarkable controversy is being
fought ont over the body of Garibaldi.
It will be recollected that when the hero
and patriot died, his last will was found
to confirm his expressions in life in
favor of cremation. He required his
executors to seo that his body should
not be buried, but burned. The feelings
of some of the members of his family,
and not a few of his friends, were adverse
to such a treatment of hia remains.
From that time to this, the present head
of tho family, the Deputy Menotti Garibaldi, has been entreated again and again
by his father's admirers to carry ont the
great patriot's last request. Menotti,
owever, has always steadily resisted
these appeals. The wholo business has
now been put into the hands of tho Milan Cremation Society, which is about to
take legal proceedings against Menotti
Oaribaldi in order to compel him to lay
aside Iris personal objections snd comply
with the direction of bis fathor.

Bunyan's Gealu.
We hear that Bunyan's "Pilgrim's
Progress" has been translated into Japanese, nnd that it is illustrated In a very
curious \vay, by native artists. Christian
has a close-shaven Mongolian head, Vanity Fair is a feast of lanterns, with ail the
popular Japanese amusements, tho dungeon of Giant Dispair Is ono of those
large wooden cages well known to Eastern
criminals, and the angels waiting to receive tho pilgrims on the further side of
the bridgelcss river are dressed after the
latest Yokohama fashions in tbo gorgeous
costumes and head-dresses of great Japanese ladies. It is the best of proofs ol
Bunyan's genius, that his work is found
so truly human, as to adapt to tho sentiments and associations of men in all
lands and climes.

Mof o than one women, woll known in
society, persists in penciling her oycbrowt
with India ink. Tho fashion might be
condoned it it wore an improvement, bul
not one voman in ten can practice il
without making herself ridiculous. The
other dav I met at a reception a lady who
Is (he mother of grown children. She
had evidently made up in a hurry or in
a room insufficiently lighted, for one eyebrow was half an inch higher, more
arched and longer than the other. Il
gave this otherwise dignified femalo the
appearance of a diabolical wink with one
eye, which, to say the least was grotesque.

proposed to knit a "follow" for it; but

A Serious Charge.
In September a number of girls arrived at Donald from England, having
been engaged by tho proprietor of n
danco house through an agout to come
to Donald, paying their way out,
though, it ia stated, the girls did not
know the character of the place thoy
wero ongaged to serve in. On the
way out one of them met a young man
and was married to hiin. They both
remained at Donald, she to fulfil her
contract. With others sho was employed in giving a theatrical entertainment in the house, and after the performance the girls would enter into
conversation with the audience, who
of course were all of tho sterner box,
and some of a prettv tough character.
However, it was the duty of the girls
to entertain them until their money
was all squandered in drink, when Ihe
proprietor would closo up the house.
Late last month the husband started
for San Franoisco, leaving his wife at
Donald. Shortly after he left, ft appears, the proprietor of tho houso, ono
Ritchie, made a crimiual assult on the
woman aud accomplished, hia ovil desire. On tlie pretence' of going to
post a letter she went to the station,
boarded the train and eamo ou to hor
husband io Victoria, who had not yet
Bailed. Information wns laid before
the provincial authorities hero, ond
Officer Hussey, of Lytton, was ordered
to Donald to arrest the man, tha woman accompanying.— Colonial.

James Hardiston, a half-breed,
charged with supplying intoxicating

pleaded guilty.
It appeals that an Indian named
named George wanted to get a bottle
of whiskey and to effect that end took
council with a tillicum named Charlio.
Ways and meuns were discussed for
some time, and finally Charlie hit upon Ihe brilliant idea of getting Hardiston to make the purchase. Hardiston was easily persuaded lo assist his
friends in necessity, and being furnished with tho necessary dust procured a
bottle of cocktails. The wife of one of
the Indians having learned how the
whiskey wns procured laid information
beforo tho police, who speedily arrested
the guilty party.

hour last evening on tho life of his

boen drinking hard, during which
time he has repeatedly threatened to
murder his wife. The mother of Mrs.
Ponzel has been visiting her, nt which
he bitterly protested. Laat evening
he went home in a drunken, crazed
condition, and seizing a heavy pitcher,
dealt his defenseless wife sledge-hammer blows on the hend nnd face. Ho
struck her witii a large piece of tho
shattered pitcher, cutting the fainting
woman on the neck about three inches
below the ear, inflicting a ghastly
wound, and severing ah artory. Had
it not beon for the timely arrival of
medical aid she would havo soon died
from the loss of blood. Immediately
after he fled to the streot. The cries
of murder from the livo small children
brought tn their lumber's assistance a
number of tho neighbors, who kindly
miniotcrerl to the wants of tho terribly
mutilated woman. Penzel was taken

PiiOFLB who Read and Reflect, after
reading, upon tho many published testimonials regarding Northrop k Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure,
can scarcely fall to perceive that evidence
so positive and concurrent could not be
adduced in behalf of a remedy of doubtful efficacy. The facts proven by such
evidence are that it roots out Impurities
of tlie blood, restores digestion, enriches
the circulation, and regulates the bowels
and liver.
