We were driving past a Dakota
settler's house, when he came out
and said:—
"Surveying' 'nother railroad 1"
"No.','
'Ain't 1 Iaw'arltpld U»oW
woman we got to move the house
again."
"Had trouble with tho railroad
surveyors 1"
"Yes—been shakin' my house
'round all summer. First some men
come along in a buggy, set up some
long, slim barbar-pole-lookin' sticks,
stuck up a three-le^ed Mm*
humped it 'down aha squinted
through it, an' then says they: 'Old
hoss, you got to move your house
'bout four rods, 'cause we're going
to lay the track of the Dakota and
Gum-Weed Fork railroad right
through here I"
"So you moved it 1"
"Pulled her right out o'the way.
1 ain't tho man to hinder no public
improvements. Then some more
com? along an' squinted an' peeked
around, an' says they: ' Mister
Granger, we're sorry; but we'll have
to trouble you to yank your house
round 'bout six rods to the south.'
I mnde a bee line an' we yanked
hor."
"Didn't that settle iti"
"No. In 'bout a week I caught
some men a squintin' an' I called
the boys an' we put jackscrews under tho house, nn'then a asked the
fellers where we should go. 'Jes'
haul her 'bout a quarter of a mile
due west, old man,' says they, an'
'foro night me'n' tho boys had her
hauled. I left the wheels right under it that time, an' told Ike not to
unyoke tho oxen,"
"Vou didn't havo to move again 1"
"Yes, but I did. Next moriiin'
'fore we was up 'long come a committeo from town an' condemned the
house nn' ordered me to move it inside of ten minutes to make room
forthe Great Dakota an' North
Pole Route. Wc hooked up an' wus
snukin' it along while my wife got
brenkfust, when down come a big
fat man with half a dozen double
chains an' begun given' mo hail Columbia for driviu' 'crost the right o'
way of the Great Dakota and Osh-

managed to git my house od' onto a
piece, o' Govcr'ment lund ao' thon

"Didn't any of tho roads build!"

THE LEAGUE LIVES.
Dublin, April 11.—Mr. Timothy
Healy, M.P., presided at a meeting of
the National League held here to-day.
He maintained that last Sunday's
meetings disposed of the boast by Chief
Secretary Balfour that tbe league wss
dead. He said they proved that the
people were still adherents of the
league and that they were anxious to
rid themselves of the thraldom of the
British government If they once got
an opportunity they would rise in their
strength ana shake off tbe galling
yoke.
ROCOB OK THE PABTHIA.
Sax Francisco, April 11.—A telegram was received at the health oflice
to-doy from Henry Webber, agent of
the Canadian Pacific Steamship line st
Vancouver, to the effect that the stesmer Parthia had been free from disease
since leaving Chins, and asking that
the vessel be not subjected to quarantine rules in this port as the vessel
clears with a clean bill of health. The
health officer replied to thd communication that all steamers from China
will be placed in quarantine on arrival
horo regardless of where tbey have
touched.
DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, April 11.—There was an
interesting debate in the house yesterday in connection with tbe fisheries
treaty. In accordance with a previous
announcement Sir Chas Tupper moved
the second reading of the bill to confirm the fisheries treaty, and made a
splendid speech of about four hours,
dealing most exhaustively with the
question. He gave a historical resume
of the negotiations and their motive,
and referred to the circumstances leading up to the recent conference. He
dealt with the respective clauses of the
treaty, showing that while making conciliatory concessions to the states, no
injury had been done to the interests
of Canada or to Canadian fishermen.
Mr. Davies replied, and made a
speech full of exaggerated statements,
which were must effectively torn to
■*■*«*bj tie Hon. J. fl. D, Thompson.
LORD SALISBURY'S LETTER.
London, April 11.—Lord Salisbury
has written a latter to Earl Carnarvon
in which ht Bays he is convinced that
all the rulers of Europe are struggling
to prevent the calamity which would
result from a war into which circumstances might throw their people. Continuing, Lord Salisbury says: " Now
there is reason to hope that the life
of the Emperor Frederick may be continued to him, that life is pledged to
the advancement of mankind and the
maintenance of peace." Referring to
Mr. Chamberlain's mission, the premier says: "I sent Mr. Chamberlain
to America unfettered by any instructions beyond informing him of the
broad views of the government on the
subject of the fishery treaty and that
it would bo a monument which should
indicate the peaceful and cordial feeling existing between the two nations,"
Regarding Ireland Lord Salisbury
says: " I feel confident thnt prosperity
will never return to Ireland until her
people will realize the hopelessness of
attempting lo effect political ohanges
by a total disregard for the rights of
their neighbors' dues and prosperity."
1-KF.PARlSl! HOU THE KIliHT.
San Francisco, April 11.—The
Pacific Coast Steamship Company is
getting ready to fight if need be,
though it will not suffer as much as
the Oriental lines. The company already has u plan to prevent tho Canadian steamers from taking freight to
Vancouver for transhipment by rail-
wny to points in the cast, or from
points in thu United States to Vancouver for shipment tn San Francisco
by steamer. It is claimed thst this is
"cniir.ti.is t' iniffic under the same
rules tlmt steamer traffic to New York
is coastwise traffic. This i. the law aB
intti|rrirteil by the Pacific Cosst Company, and its agents will resist the
transportation of merchandise, for tlio
east in British bottoms. It will, of
cour.ro, be out of the question to stop

peddlers came to the house and wanted
to stay all night. After they had been
shown to bod Upstairs, John Hill earns
over, and Henry began to conooct a
plan to murder them. They told me
to keep quiet and fellow them. We
all went upstairs, and they compelled
me to throw a quilt over the heads of
the sleeping men. Then Henry thrust
a knife into my hand and told me to
cut their throats or they would kill
me. I did so, and caught their blood
in a dish-pan and threv-it in Aha road.

Children.7'' V\]p\'\^j§ §s,u_ fi ritish Columbian
Thunder I.i rains. April in, law,.
The Donald correspondent of the
Calgary Tribune says: "The pres.
fint license law is it disgrace to our
province." There nro a great many
people throughout the province who
will endorse thnt opinion. Tho
Churchman's GarscUc, published in
this city, and recognized as tho organ of the Ohurch of England, says:
"There are two bills before tho
local house, which, whatever bo
tlieir ultimate fate, wo are unfeigned-
ly thankful should at least have been
proposed and discussed. Tho first
relates to tho liquor licenses, and
has been introduced by tlio provincial seoretary. It is a thoroughly
satisfactory measure in many respects, but wo aio almost disposed
to bo afraid that it is too good a
iiiunsuio to pass." lt is certainly to
be regretted that the bill has failed.
It was ruled out of tho house on a
question of older; but it it had not
been so ruled out, we have every
reason to believe that it would have
boon defeated by a very heavy majority. In many respects it was an
excellent bill, and we should have
been greatly pleased to see it passed
with some modification.
The Winnipeg Commercial says:
"Thero is considerable rejoicing in
British Columbia over the decision
of the Dominion government to buy
out the C. F. II. monopoly. British
Columbia was in about the same
position as Manitoba regarding monopoly. Though the monopoly clauso
could uot apply to the province, yet
it was enforced by the disallowance
of railway acts passed by the local
assembly. British Columbia, however, could not feel the grinding nature of monopoly the same as in
Manitoba. The very great majority
of tho poople :in that provinco live
on tho coast, and they enjoyed unrestricted communication with the
United States and its railwnys by
wator. Still tho British Columbia
people were iinxious to have railway
connection with the Unitod States,
and a scheme has been on hand for
some years to build a railway from
Westminster to the boundary, there
to connect with a railway now under
construction, for Puget Sound points.
Disallowance has heretofore been applied to this scheme, but now that
monopoly has beon removed, the
Columbians will be free to build
their road. A few months ago the
lost link in the railway between
Portland and San Francisco was
completed. With the completion of
the road between Westmintser and
Seattle the entire Pacific const railway system will be connected. The
British Columbia members in parliament refused to assist Manitoba
in the fight against monopoly, but,
notwithstanding this, the Pacific
province will be greatly benefitted
by the result" Our cotemporary is
not precisely correct Mr. Chisholm,
the member for this district, opposed
. the disallowance policy and voted
against it.
In the debate which followed the
announcement of the Canadian government's intention to put on the
free list certain natural products
which had been made free by the
U. S, customs authorities, it was
officially declared by several members of the oabinet that the policy
of this country with respect to reciprocity of natural products had
never changed. This, it was stated,
was the common policy of both parties, and in this respect there was
no difference of opinion between the
two sides of the house It appears,
also, that the government is prepared to go still further in the same
direction. Sir Charles Tupper said
" the government had made every
article free that had boon made free
by the United States, and in nilili-
dition hod intimated to tho United
Statei that they were prepared to
go further." The same speaker declared that "no person could read tho
poit hiitory of Canada without seeing that the avowed policy of Iroth
parties had always been in favor of
the free interchange of natural pin-
ducts with th* United States." A
person reading the Conservative and
reform papers, however, would reach
a very different conclusion. Conservative organs make it appear that
reciprocity in natural products
would be ruinous to the Conudian
agricultural interests, aa well as the
cnl mines; while reform organs declare that the idea of reciprocity belong! exclusively to them and their
party, and that the Conservative
party's policy it always and only a
policy of protection. The announcement mad* by Sir Charles Tupper
wai received with great enthusiasm
by all parties, and it was quite ovi-
dent that reciprocity in natural pro-
duota, including fish, timber, minerals, etc., U considered generally to
be jurtthecorrect thing. Unrestricted trad* contemplate! another step
only, namely, the free interchange
of all product! of the two countries
—tha Mm* freedom of trade that
now eiiiti between the different
province! of the Dominion.

i Tho lir 1 driver 1 had o.erejmrgod mo in
BUt'li rt ttupuidous way that ho could not
keep h.a iaco straight when ho named
his price. Thou, niter lo.irlng <it his own
avarice, lie calmly lowtsred thu prlcohim-
nelf and nuiioum/ed that lio would lake
so much. I paid it to him, tolling him
that 1 knew it wns double his fare. After
he hnd received it ho burst out in another roar. "Vou aro rip-lit; it is about
double, but it isn't overy day wo get a
chance," and then went off in perfect
convulsions of amusomont over his successful strike at tho stranger. Tlio excessive volubility of tho drivers J3 marvelous. They won't driyo you well unless you let them talk. They g.l sulky
directly, and mako it up by extra charges.
They tire much Iklter-iiaturod to oach
other than the Knglish cabbies. The
tlrst night I was out" my driver ran tlio
shafts of his car full tilt* inlo tho back of
another car. I thought for a moment
that ho would take tho hack ot tho hen 1
car oil', but ho bucko t his' I ur-o o !', and
when the driver he I a I run into looked
angrily Lack at him l.o sail: "..ouk

hind wheti you are drfvim*." Ami with
this ho swung out lo tho right an I p isscil

_ Sackville street.   'J lib o-giji-lfved fellow
I grinned at tlio assurance ot his nssbeltlfco
and stopp.'d looking behind.
The lust man 1 hud continually called
my attention to tho bcautiiul black Irish
mare attached to hia ear. J hi toll mo
she could mako ton miles an hou- day in

made my drivor indi-uinl, * ud li spint

trying to tip mo oil', by whir, i..^ suddenly
around corners, or spin lina; his ear along
on one wheel down s uno dark street or
(slippery lane. But yet on the wholo
they wero so much iuoi*ti iAteVefetuig and
amusing than the I n-lis i cabbies, because they mot every possible Bttuatiou
with such wit and with such assurance.
On a recent afternoon/1 asked ono can
driver how much he would charge to
drive me out to the horso show aud back,
about a mile distant, lie promptly responded half a guinea, without a blink.
The next man was ready to go for two
shillings. This extraordinary drop did
uot discom.oso tliu first driver. Ue
st-pped for* ard as if I wero going with

h.iTfit lOi.tonumous way, in speaking of

As I v.as not engaged at that pavticulnr

figure, I went with the two shilling man.
A REMARKABLE TALE* _
fcyafc-H-Wjn Not Wye^oa Soli From the
" ~    Emoritldlsic.
James Fraricls'TToffap, in his book,
"Tiio Irish in Australian," relate? that
Vnuehise, one of the prettiest Bpota on
Sydney IIarbor, Mas a curious and romantic history. At tho beginning of the
cent ur v it was. chosen as his place of residence" bv Sir Henry Hay,-*, an Irish Baronet, who had tho misio.tuno to be
transported for-abducting t.io lady on
whom he had set his allections, but who
did not ate her way to ivciprocdto his
tender passion. Though teohnioally a
prisoner, sir Henry's rank and social position caused Win to be treated bythe
authorities as a privileged person,aud he
was allowed a lull measuM of freedom
on giving his word of honor that he
would mako no attempt to leave the colony nnl return to Ireland. 81r Henry
(ic-ptej his fate w.tli. philosbphcal re*
sigti:ttibn,aiul commenced to htuld anew

whioh be h,,d puren..so.! an 1 cadod Vuu-
clttso. JJut tlitiugh the placo was, and
sLiil is, one oi the lovulisl sj) 'ts on earth,
it had at that time oiu sjiious ahd an*
iioyinjdiMwback. It was infested with
snakes.
Uno day, however, a bright idea struck
Sir Honry as he was cojjU dliig on tlio
subject, and wondering it ihu/j iv.-ro nny.
practical means of rid ling hints a of
theso unwelcome inirudors. He resuu>l
to try a bold and remarkable experiment.
He would seo whether tlu virtue of .:t.
Patrick's prohibition of snulQs on Irish
soil would extend to the samo soil if
transferred to the other fault, of tho world.
Ho accordingly sent ho.nu for a number
of barrels of Irish sod, and they arrived
in Sydn 7 iu due coiiisu. Mr Henry then
spread this imported earth, as 1. r as it
wonld go, around his residence, with the
result, very gratifying to himself, that
his domeat c precincts wero never afterwards troubled by sna.vvs, although the
other portions of tho dstuio continued to
bo infested by the reptiles. Succeeding
occupants of Vauehwa, among them the
distinguished statesman, W. 0. Went*
. worth, all agree in testifying to the singular fact that a snake was novor known
to cross tho charmed circle of Irish earth.
ONE FORM OF SWINDLING.
How AUesort Theatrical Managers Manage
to Obtain Money from Dupes,
It Is a common thing to soe nn advertisement in some of tho daily news-
pap *rs for a treasurer or cashier of a
theatrical company, at a salary of fifteen
or twenty dollars a weok, who can "furnish a hundred or a hundred and litty
dollars cash as security."
It is a type of swindling akin to the
"grceu goods' business and bunco steering, only that it is more difficult to convict the swindlers in this line. Thoy are
well posted in all tho technicalities of the
law, and if pursued by a victim, which
.happens rarely, the most that can be
done with them is to compel thorn to
surrender tho money thoy have received
for security.
A man who catches twenty-five or
more victims a year, aud many more are
caught in much less time,, can make a
very comfortable living. Their modus
operandi his been described so often that
it dues not need recapitulation here. It
is oni/ necessary to say that the most
llattering inducements are held out to
the victim, who is invariably a young
man, he planks down his cold cash as
"security,-4 ho is sont off on a ficticious
errand and very soon finds out that ho
has been swindlod. The swindlers have
letter-boxes and addresses in various
parts of the city, and it is hard for thoir
victims, without polico aid, to catch
them.
Tho following is a literal copy of a
letter which came very near being In-
Mnuneutal in a young man parting with
$1(10:
Drab Sir: In reply to your letter regarding cashier of my company will
state 1 desire a young man to sell tickets
'in the box office of the theater and to
keep a strict lookout for all moneys taken
in, us it Is impossible for me to do so as
my time is all taken up on the stage.
Your duties aro simple and I can teach
you in a short time.   You siun a contract
with me for one yenr at a salary of $15
per week and I pay your hotel, railroad
and baggage expenses, salary to be paid
o:n e it week and on every Wednesday of
ench week.    The Slot) cash security will
bo hold by me until end of engagement,
or should you desire to withdraw bofore,
a two weeks' notice will be required ana
■ money refunded.   You hold a voucher
Irom mo for the amount, so.at any time
niter you have given tho notice you can
. draw from box-office receipts or from
ino.   You have my only terms, and if
jfyou can abide by them 1 willongagoyou
at once, if not save yourself nny further
trouble.  If you accept telegraph me on
receipt of this saying the exact time you
will call, as I am busy attending ro-
lioarsal and want to bo at home when
you call.

A Horso thnt Draws tho Water lie Drink a,
Tho sagacity exhibited by some of the
horses employed by the tire department in
New Vorii is very ro uarkat*ly,'and their
exploits havo been frequently described
in our daily newspapers; l>ut 'for the
first timu wo read in uno of our evoning
contemporaries of a liors ■ in the service
of tho ambnlance corps, wnich is uot far
behind any firo ongino iiarsa wo havo
read of in point ot intelligence. Tho
horse pulls the ambulance in search of
patients for the Now 1'ork Hospital) and
during tlu whole period of his philanthropic career as au ambulance, he haa
never once been riven a drink by any of
the stables hands. Ho believes in t.-.o
maxim that God helps those who help
thomselve3, and helps himself accordingly.
A Teleijram reporter went down t> soo
how ho quenched his thirst, aud was edified hy tho intellectual behavior of the
animal, which ho desmbod as follows :
There is an ordinary faucet with u pail
undor it in tlie stable*, and to this faucet
the horse made a boo line.
First ho dipped his noso into tho pail
te see if there was any water there, but
finding thero was none, hu proceeded to
open tho valve by turning the handle
\v th his nose. Ho Uiu not turn it on
i'lito enough at the first attempt, so he
li.tve it another nudge, and held his nose
tm lor the spigot while the water poured
Ivor it to his apparent immense satisfaction. "But what a lot ot wat r will bo
wasted when ho leaves it'running tho
moment he has had enough 1" ejaculated
tho reporter.
"Wait aud sec," answered tho driver.
And there was no water wasted, for
tho moment the horso had concluded his
drink, he went at the faucet again with
his nose nud shut off the flow completely.
"Does he always do that?" Again queried the newspaper man.
"Certainly," answered tho drivor, ns
ho patted his four-footed iriend on tho
shoulder. "As long as I've known him,
that hoiso hns never had a drink that he
did not draw from tho tap for himself
just as you havo seen him do this time."

"The Seven Clerks."
Herring's opera house was well filled
last night on the occasion of the presentation of (lthe Seven Clerks," and
'•Poor PiUiooddy," by our indefatigable and praiseworthy amateur dramatists. Tbe opera liouso itself has
been tastefully finished inside, and Mr.
Herring's new drop curtain was enchanting. Both the drama nnd the
farco were well put on and sustained
throughout by good castes. The stage
arrangements, under Mr. Bonson were
excellent, Mr. Fisher, as Claud Dar-
naud, the aged usurer and "denouncer,"
fairly lost hia identity iu tho character,
and was positively thrilling in some
passages, particularly in the last act.
Mrs. Moresby as " Victorine," his
daughter, fully maintained her reputation as a star amateur, and acted her
part in a truly artistic manner.
"Adolphe de Briancourt," by Mr,
Parkes, was good in get-up and figure,
and the part was well acted. The
" Three Thieves," Dr. DeWolf Smith,
Mr. Hamber and Mr. Falding, were
perfectly killing, as the unfortunate
"Simon Sigger," (Mr. Glover) the
chronically and comically hungry servant, found to his cost. Other minor
parts were well sustained by Messrs.
Wilson, Harvey and Moresby. During tho interlude Messrs. Keary and
Rickman sang with their well-known
taste and acceptance, and buth were
encored. Mr. Keary responded to an
enthusiastic encore by a comic son;'
full of local hits, which was appreciated by all those, nt least, who were uot
"hit." In tlie concluding farce, Mr.
Glover as " Mlicody," kept the audience convulsed. The bluff tar, "Capt.
O'Scuttle," -who refused to remain
drowned, was ably presonted by Mr.
Freeman, Miss Homer made a good
"Mrs. 1'illigbdy," and acted her part
very prettilfiand in good taste. Mra.
Moresby exalted as " Mrs. O'Scuttle,"
and Sarah,", the shop girl, hy Miss
Hill (who dttplayed considerable npti-
tudo and taUnt for a young dramatist)
was a piquaflfand amusing representation. Befonthe curtain fell Ml die
closiiiff scenf of _" T\is_ jtaflifflBfoJ
soveral bouqueu were showered upon
the stage, and Mr. Fisher and Mrs.
Moresby were called before the curtain
by tho appreciative and enthusiastic
audience. The " Happy Hottentots "
(Messrs. Keary, Rickman, Turnbull,
and Robinson) beguiled the intervals
with their sweet strains. This famous
musical organization never fails to receive the well-merited appreciation and
applause of the entertainment goers of
our city, who know good music when
they hear it. Obliging and gontle-
manly ushers conducted people to
their seats, during tho evening, nnd
perhaps the only excuse for tho
" chronic grumbler " was the regulation of tho temperature and ventilation. It was decidedly warm and
closo in the earlier part of tho evening, nnd later on the other extreme
was reached. The entertainment wns
given in aid of tho bell tower fund, of
Holy Trinity Church, and a very handsome sum was realized.
A Commendable Project.
Mr, B, Sanders, for many years a
member of the Toronto city council,
and ono of tho present directors of the
Toronto IndttutrUl inhibition, Ih ii!
tho city. Mr. Bfthdefa has been making a complete tour of the Pacific
coast, ou pleasure, and is now on hia
road home to Torontoi While in Victoria he called upon tho government
wltli tho view of procuring tlieir assistance towards sending uu exhibit
from British Columbia to the Toronto
exhibition this year. The Hon. Mr.
Robson promised to do nil in his
power to aid this really oxcellont project. A resolution was passed in tho
Victoria eity council, nt ita list mooting, favoring tlie prujoit, and a similar
resolution will bo passed in the Vancouver city council on Monday night.
Mr. Sanders hud au interview with
Mayor Dickinson to-day, who promised he would bring the matter before
tho council on Monday night and uso
his best efforts to.have an exhibit sent
forward. Ontario has thousands of
wealthy farmers who are anxious to
make a change, and a groat many have
already left that provinco and settled
in California, who might have been attracted to British Columbia had its
capabilities and resources been more
widely known. If tho proposed exhibit, which should be us large and
goneral as possible, is sent to Toronto,
it will be viowed by nearly half a million of people, among whom will be the
best and largest farmers in Ontario.
The project is worthy of consideration
and we hope this splendid chance of
allowing the eastern people the products and resources of British Colum-
unidiii, will not be lost.

A Legislator on His Ear.
Vktouja, April 11.—A scene
occurred in the member's room of tho
legislature to-day between tho leader
of tho opposition, Mr. Robert Beaven,
and Mr. W. II. Ellis, the editor of the
Colonist, the government organ. The
latter was conversing with several
members before tho opening of tho
houae, when Mr. Beaven came into
the members' room and rudely naked
Mr. Ellis to leave the room, claiming
that he had no business there. Mr.
Ellis parleyed with Mr. Beaven for a
few minutes, questioning his right and
requesting his reasons, and then stood
at the door talking to some members,
whon Mr. Beaven suddenly closed it
in his face. Mr. Dunsmuir jumped up
from his seat and opened it, and warned
Mr. Beaven not to close it again, threatening to throw him out. After somo
further conversation Mr. Ellis walked
out of the members' room, and wns
followed to tho door of the lobby by
Mr. Beaven. Mr. Martin brought the
matter before tho house on a question
of privilege, and characterized Mr.
Bcaven.s conduct as ungeutlemanly,
disreputable and inexcusable. Mr.
DnnBjnmr. Clolonel .Baker and othor
members similarly scorned the offender,
and Mr. Robson, the leader of tho
government, said it was the first case
on record whero such a gross insult
had been perpetrated by any honorable
member, and suggested that tho leader
of the opposition should offer an ample
apology to the man ho had insulted.
The members of tho opposition made
no defence of their leader's conduct.

Benvon'S action was probably caused

of his tactics, the ciifrytng.oiit of which
the ColonUl has successfully uid.d in
