Inree) From Ike Deal pel.
The details of a remarkable instance of supposed death, actual
burial and resuscitation, after being
dug up to serve the ends of science
on the dissecting table, were mads
known here to-day. Charles Mar-
tindiile died suddenly in this city
live or six yean ago as a result of a
stroke of apoplexy whioh came upon
him during a wrestling match with
a companion, He waa buried with
the usual forms. Imt night he appeared iu the flesh at the home of
his parents, rin the lirst ward, and
had the following story to tell of his
experience: He remembered distinctly that he was wrestling with
his companions, and then it seemed
to grow dark. He felt that he was
being lifted up and carried away,
but lie had no power to remonstrate.
His nerves refused to aet. He knew
that his parents were weeping over
him, and afterwards he was conscious that he was being laid out
Still he was unable to let anyone
know that be was alive. The most
horrible sensation came over him
when the coffin was lowered in the
grave, and as the clods fell upon the
lid he lost even what little mind he
had, and everything was a blank.
When next consciousness came to
him, he was seated between two
men a riding in a light wagon.
Although his eyes felt so heavy and
swollen that he could not see, he
heard enough to convince him that
he wus in the city, but the conversation of the men was what attracted his attention especially. "I tell
you," said one, in low tones, " we'll
give old Prof, a bigger scare than he
has had in many a day. I hooked
a good suit of clothes to-day from
the bouse, and when we get this
stiff fixed up lielimiMfhhtng;"
" It's heavy," said the other as
he pushed the body over towards his
companion, " Good subject," said
No. 1 in a whisper, and then Charles
began to realize that he had been
stolen from tbe coffin tor a medical
college. The thought was by no
means cheerful, but try ss he would
Charles could not get out of his
semi-unconscious state. Rather the
news unsettled him, and he again
lost all consciousness. When he
knew anything again he was standing bolt upright in a low, square,
dimly-lighted room. He could feel
something on every side of him
holding him up. He thought that
ho was in a dissecting room, and
realized tbat whatever was done
must le done then or never. Necessity is a creator, and the gravity of
his position seemed to infuse new
blood into his veins. Suddenly he
felt the throbbing of his heart, and
then the sense of touch seemed to
come to him. He could feel the
warmth from the stove, while sharp
pains darted through his whole
body. The sense of smell came
next, and he almost fainted from
the odors of a dozen medical compounds passed into his nostrils. And,
lastly, sight came to him nnd slowly
his eyes opened and he was able to
discern things about him. And
what a sight I He was not in a
dissecting room, but in a doctor's
ollicer, shelves filled with buttles
solved the origin of tho odors. A
bookcase well stocked stood in one
corner, while in another was a combination chair in which a patient
can be placed into almost any position. A skeleton strung on wires,
with the ghostly skull and pieces of
dried flesh still hanging on to thn
bones, was an unpleasant reminder
of his own situation. He knew now
how ho came there. The men wero
two medical students, who had
robbed his grave, and who proposed
to cut him up after having a little
fun with one of the professors. The
pangs of hunger made him faint, and
he searched tlio olllce for a morsel.
He found it behind the curtain,
where it had evidently heen placed
by the doctor's wife, who intended
it for her husband when he should
return home from a midnight call.
He never got it that night, for the
corpse did not leave as much as a
crumb behind. The meal despatched,
Charles felt less like a dead man.
Young Marttndale hnd more norve
tlmu the ordinary young man, but
even Inr shuddered as he thought of
what lie had passed through. The
next thing was to get aWHy. Now
thut hit was himself again he had no
idirn of being soused into a pickling
tub nor of ornnmeiitiiig a dissecting
table, lie believed that he had
another destiny, and then tho
thought of liis prist follies came to
him, nnd he almost wished that
Inr hnd not returned to this world,
which nt Irent has its unpleasant
side. Unmindful of his father's
Warnings, he had borrowed money
until lie irrrnld borrow no more, und
liii wns tisliamed tn go  Imck homo.
He went west and found employment, and has been there until his
sudden reappearance to his astonished parents last night.—Toledo

IHE BIBBIini SEA QCESTIOK.
London, March 26.—The under
secretary for the colonies, Baron De-
Worms, stated in the hr.uee of commons to-night that the Dominion government stated that it did not credit
the report from British Columbia that
a numbsr of Canadian sealing schooners
had been permitted to clear for the
Behring Sea to prosecute seal fishing
contrary to the Alaskan regulations,
carrying large Indian crews to wage
war upon the American revenue cutters if molested. Baron DeWurrai added that the question of a settlement
of the Alaskan fisheries dispute waa
now under consideration by the two
governments concerned, but that it
would be premature at this moment to
say more than tbat her majesty's government have no reason to doubt that
a satisfactory arrangement will be arrived at.
1TRITI8H   TAXES.
London, March 26.—The budget
which wob submitted in the house of
commons by Mr. Goschen, the chancellor of the exchequer, this evening,
possesses more novel features and creates a greater sensation than any similar presentation for many years. In
the expectation of something of this
character, thousands of persons tried
to gain admission to the galleries long
before the speaker took hia seat, but
the space allotted to strangers was already crowded to its full capacity.
Minister Phelps and several other
prominent Americana were present,
file budget separates the imperial
from the local taxation but the manner
of the division is not yet made clear.
New taxes are imposed upon all street
vehicles exoept those used in the pursuit of husbandry and hackney coaches. The taxes of the latter named
vehicles are, however, rearranged to
the end of lessening the rate of taxation. Pleasure and racing horses,
horse-dealers, choice wines and champagnes are inoluded in the list of increase, the latter paying 5 shillings a
dozen. New companies are taxed at
tbe rate of £1 per 1000 of their capital
stock,  and brokers' contracts pay 6
?Bnce instead of a penny as formerly,
he budget also remits one penny of
the income tax, removes all taxes from
street hawkers, and lowers the rate of
taxation upon land yielding a profitless
husbandry. The revenue of the Sun
canal shares is to devoted to the construction of new fortifications. The
increased penalty imposed upon brokers' contracts and new companies will
be certain to cause a disturbance in
financial circles, while it is doubtful
whether the remittance of the tax
hitherto paid by the street hawkers,
which was designed to catch tbe proletariat, will result aa favorably to the
government as the hotel vote at the
next oleotion as the ministry is led to
hope. The proposal to tax champagne
five (hillings a dozen was kopt vory
quiet, and only leaked out this afternoon through the misplaced confidence
of the ministry in one or two garrulous
memben.
NO NEWS   FBOM STiNLSV.  '

Tueidar EvonlH(, Jlareh 21, ISSS.
Tho Washington correspondent, of
the Chicago Inter-Ocean thinks the
new tariff bill wilKU' killed in congress. Large numbers of deputations, representing various protected
interest?, are haunting the American capital to protest against, tho
withdrawal of protection from tho
manufactures in whioh they are interested. Theppinion largely prevails among well-informed men on
thia side of the boundary, however,
that the contemplated tariff revision
will materially assist United States
manufacturers to compete with much
mora success in foreign markets.
Under tho proposed tariff the duty
is to be taken off a number of articles which are used as raw material
in American factories, which will
enable them to obtain a better pro
fit on goods for export than they cau
now have. But people who become
accustomed to protection are very
much like individuals who have been
receiving pensions from the government—they lose their independence
and believe themselves no longer
able by tlieir own unaided efforts to
succeed against competition.
A resident of Dakota writes to
one of the Winnipeg papers to the
effect that a large immigration from
that state to Manitoba may be
looked for as soon as the railway
monopoly has been abandoned.
Thousands of Canadians were driven
from the Canadian northwest to the
northwestern states (1) by the illiberal land laws which the Canadian government at first  enforced;
(2) by the high customs tariff; and
(3) by tho railway monopoly. The
land regulations havo been greatly
improved; and if the railway monopoly ceases, there will remain only
the high tariff as a grievance forthe
people north of the boundary. We
have always believed that the
abandonment of tho monopoly would
have precisely the effect promised
by this correspondent; and we havo
maintained that the impetus that
would be thus given to development
in that country would be worth almost as much to tho railway company as the monopoly clause. Every
additional settler in Manitoba and
the northwest is an addition to the
traffic of the railway, and we shall
be greatly surprised if the abandonment of monopoly does not result in
a much larger immigration this year
than has ever before been known,
Since the passing of the inter,
state commerce bill the American
trans-continental railways have
suffered greatly from the competi
tion of the C. P. B., and it is now
proposed that congress shall pass
such legislation aB will place the
Canadian road under restrictions.
It is not yet known what shape this
legislation may take. The presidents of the leading American railway companies have been invited
to make such suggestions as may assist in determining upon an effective
scheme, and several prominent lawyers are also said to be at work devising a measure that may accomplish the desired object without coming into conflict with international
laws. The 0. P. R. has several
American connections, and it carries
a large quantity of United States
freight in bond. It is quite likely
that congress may be able to effect
its purpose by taking advantage of
these circumstances. Quite possibly
the astute managers of the 0. P. R.
foresaw this movement and the anticipation of it may have hod something to do with bringing it into an
agreement with the Northern Pacific. There is no doubt but the
American government will do whatever it oan to coerce the C.P.R. into
an abandonment of tho policy of
cutting rates which it has been pursuing ao as to protect American
roads; and if this is successfully accomplished, it is very likely through
rates to British Columbia will be affected to a certain extent.
The people of this oity are about
unanimous in the opinion that the
proposed ch»nge in the publio sohool
aot which entails a large additional
expense upon the four cities is unjust and inexpedient, and ought not
to become law. The additional cost
that will (all upon this city in con-
sequence of the ohange will probably be about (1600. Itiswellknown
that onr revenue is now so swallowed
up by fixed charges that the balance
available for publio improvements is
not much over $4,000 a year, This
•urn is manifestly quite insufficient
for k progressive city, and if we are
to be saddled with an additional
sum of. 11600 * year for school purposes, without receiving anything in
the way of compensation, either
our publio improvements must cease
or we shall have to levy a very much
heavier tax. We are particularly
surprised that the cities should be
called upon to bear the burden of
publio school education, while the
high schools remain free nnd receive their support entirely from the
provincial revenue. If the govern-
menthrtd thrown upon alt municipalities the ooet of maintaining the
high tehooli within their limits, the
law wo«M hare had the merit of
being general at least, instead of
disonminating between different
nmntirflnMttyipl    "A*0**1 ought
to be free, but we have always held
that a moderate feo should bo
charged for high school education,
The proponed amendment begins at
tho wrong end, aptl leads to an unjust discrimination, and we hope it
will berwitlMrnwn. Either tax all
municipalities alike for school ptii*
poses, or don't tax them at all.

Canada has also an ample coast lino
both on the Atlantic and the Pacitic,
while Hudson's Bay and Straits will, in
all probability, shortly afford au outlet
forthe immense products of the great
North-West.
Our tisheries are the richest hi tlio
world. The deep sea fisheries of Canada,
including those ofNewfoundland, yielded,
iu 1881, the enormous product of $20,*
000,000, or about double the average value of the fisheries of tho United States,
and nearly equal in value to tho whole
rreduce of the British European fisheries.
n 1885, the fisheries of Canada, alone
yielded nearly 818,000,000. These fish-
cries, the heritage of our people, and ouo
of the principal sources of our wealth, aro
vorth protecting; and wo will protect
them against tbo encroachments of the
I United btates or any other power.
Our magnificent forests arc of immense
value, and contain no less than sixty-nine
different varieties of wood. In 1885 our
■exports of products of the forest amounted to $21,000,000.
I Our mines, which arc yot in their iu-
'fancy of development, give promise of
Vast wealth. Coal in abundance is found
in Nova Scotia, New BrutiBwich, British
'Columbia and the North-West Territories. Onr coal areas aro estimated ut
upwards of 100,000 square miles, not including areas known, but as yet quite undeveloped, in the far North. Already
coal areas to the extent of 05,000 square
miles have been discovered in tho North-
,Weat, while Nova Scotia and New
Brunswick contain: 18,000 square miles
of this important element of wealth.
When it is remembered that the entire
coal area of Gnat Britain covers only
11,900 square miles, tho extent of our
resources in this direction will bo appreciated. Our coal areas are, in fact, tho
largest in the world, except those of tho
United States. After these in order
come Russia, with 80,000 square miles,
and Australia, with 25,000 square miles.
Canada has also valuable mines of gold,
silver, iron, lead, copper and othor
'metals. Tho gold mines of British Columbia have yielded during the past
twenty-five years over 250,000,000 worth
of the precious metal, whito Nova Scotia
has, up to tho present, produced noarly
,18,000.000 worth.
We have alio an abundant supply of oil
to throw light upon the subject, and
make the whole machine run smoothly.
"A land that's rich aud free,
In heart, In bomo, in hope, in liberty.
An infant empire rising in the West,
Rocked by three oceans toa native rest;
i   A virgin soil, a freedom-loving land,
A race that guard it with an iron hand."
Although essentially an agricultural
oountry, it will be seen from the foregoing that Canada has the natural products
and resources to make her one of the
'groat manufacturing countries of the
world.
In agriculture our possibilities are
practically unlimited j aud the rapidity
of our development will be understood
when it ia stated that of. the single article
of cheese, which Ib but a young industry
in our country, we exported in 1885 over
160,000,000 pounds, in the Provinco of
Oatario alono, tho capital invested in agriculture, including farm lauds, farm
stock and1 Implements, amounts to the
enormous sum of $1,000,000,000, at compared with 980,000,000 invested in manufactures. The overshadowing importance of agriculture as the foundation of
our prosperity and the source of our
wealth, will bo understood from theso
figures,
When tho present premier, Sir John
Macdonald, entered publio life in 1844,
Canada had but fourteen miles of railway. At Confederation, in 1807, they
had increased to 2,400 miles. To-day we
have upwards of 12,000 miles iu operation, representing the enormous value of
over $025,000,000.
The rapidity of our progress may bo
Sithered from the fact that in 1868 we
ad but 8,500 miles of electric telegraph.
To-day we have ovor 00,000 miles, ta

Canada is the third maritime power of
the world, being oxceoded only by Great
Britain and tho United States,
The trado of Canada is assuming highly respectable proportions, and gives further evidence of the energetic and enterprising character of our people. In 1868,
tho flrat year of Confederation, our total
trade was S131.00O.0OO. In 1883 it had
grown to $230,000,000, nn increase of
:-> 100,000,000, or an average of nearly
S7,000,000 a year.
The press of Canada has kept pace with
our progress in other respects, and is au
institution of which wo have every reason to bu proud, Thore arc at present iu
Canada abuut 650 publications,—newspapers, magazines, etc., over seventy of
which are daily newspapers. The influence for good upon the people of a pure,
clean, healthy press, such as we have in
Canada can scarcely bo over -estimated.
Our school system, especially in Ontario, is tlie finest in the world, and its
good results arc shown in the intelligence
und progressive character of our people.
The banking capital of Canada, which
may bo regarded as a sort of thermometer
indicating our progress commercially,
was, iu 1870 §30,000,000. Today, including reserves, it amounts to §80,000,000,
an increase of ovor 250 per oeut. The
notes of chartered bunks in circulation
amount to about $33,000,000. In 1868
the deposits by tho peoplo in the chartered and savings banks were $37,000,000.
To-day they amount to no less a sum
than $148,500,000, an increase of over
400 per cent. In 1868 the discounts given by tho chartered banks of Canada
were £10,500,000. To-day they are
$165,000,000, an increase of over 300 per
cent. The bank of Montreal, a purely
Canadian institution, is the largest, wealthiest, most influential and widely-extended banking corporation in tho world
unconnected with Government.
Our public works especially evidence
tho pluck, energy and enterprise of the
Canadian people, The Canadian Pacific
Railway, that mighty trans-continental
line, recently completed from ocean to
ocean, binding tho scattered parts of this
vast Confederation together, is the longest railway in the world, and is the most
stupendous public enterprise ever undertaken and successfully accomplished by a
country of the population of this Dominion, The Intercolonial Railway, connecting Quebec with tho Maritime Provinces, covers 800 miles and cost over
840,000,000, while the Grand Trunk Railway was, until the completion of tho
Canadian Pacific, tlie longest railway in
tho world under ouo management, its
total length being 3,300 miles, Great
things are confidently looked for in the
way of Aaiatio and Australian trade by
tho opening of tho Canadian Pacifio Railway, Aand when tho projected line of
steamers on the Pacific connecting therewith is an accomplished fact this route
will doubtless becomo the greatest highway to the East.
Already the British Government, feeing tho benefits to be derived from thia
route by shortening the time and distance
to its Eastern possessions, has granted
the C.P.R. a subsidy of £45,000annually.
Canada has constructed 73 miles of
canals at a cost of nearly $30,000,000.
The noble bridge that spans the St.
Lawrence at Montreal, and named after
our beloved Queen, is a triumph of engineering skill, and is considered one of
the wonders of the world.
Tlie magnificent pile of Parliament
buildings at Ottawa is a monument to
the gooa taste aud the national aspirations of the Canadian people. The capital of Ontario, the Queen City of the
west, is oue of the most beautiful, aa well
as progressive, cities on the continent;
while Montreal, the commercial metropolis of Canada, for picturesque beauty of
situation and general attractiveness is
deservedly ranked with the most beautiful cities of the continent. The ancient
city of Qucboc, around which so much
historic interest clusters, as having formed the nucleus of civilization on this continent, ia at onco one of the most strongly-
fortified, as well as romantic and interesting cities of the world.
In no country is wealth so evenly
distributed as in Canada. Here we have
fewer very wealthy men, and less poverty
than are to be found in any other land in
proportion to population. Here any
person who is sober and industrious can
obtain tho necessaries and even the comforts of life, while our unrivalled educational Bpstem affords to the poor an equal
chance with the rich in tlie struggle for
the higher positions in life.
Wo aro deeply grateful for, aB well as
pardonably proud of, tho high position
occupied by our beloved country in regard to the various moral questions that
agitate the civilized world. In no other
country is the Sabbath more sacredly observed, or the sanctity of tho marriage
tie more rigidly respected. In no nation
lias the cause of temperance made greater;,
progress; and God grant-that to Canada'
may- belong. the glorious distinction of
being the first great civilised country to
totally banish and prohibit the baneful
and Boul-dcstroying traffic in intoxicating
liquors.
Canada has also an abundance of varied
and magnificent scenery, a bracing and
invigorating climate, n hardy, self reliant,
independent-spirited peoplo, unequalled
ou this round world for those high, noble
and manly qualities that go to constitute
a great, a free, and a progressive people.
And who, with tongue or pon, shall
attempt to describe the beauties or eiiu-
me.-utu the chu ma of tho gentle sex of
our fail- Dominion f As well attempt
'to paint the lily or to gild roflnod gold."
I therefore refrain.
I trust the increased interest which
has been displayed of late years in the
study of our country's history, and the
investigation of her immense resources
and glot-louB possibilities, may continue,
and that tho result may be the development of a strong, vigorous oiid healthy
national sentiment. Should this article
prove any stimulus iu this direction its
purpose shall have been attained.— I), E.

The Blclunond loan.
We learn that the $30,000 loan bylaw was curried iu the municipality of
Richmond yesterday by a vote of 38 to
7. This action on the part of tho
municipality will doubtless havo the
effect of stimulating tlio other concerns, some of which had begun to
show sirens of weakness, and we presume the improvement scheme will
now be carried out.

A Stihoiso Sjwsation in Throat

A Necessary Road.
Thero is scarcely a day that complaints do uot come from thnt section
of tho district cast of the Hall's prairie
road to the boundary, concerning tho
difficulties settlers oxporienco in getting supplies, etc., into their farms. In
township 7, east of the Hall's prairio
road, and from tlio lino between townships 7 and 10, thero arc no roads
whatever, uud settlers are obliged to
pack everything in on tlieir bucks,
which iB a very laborious and disagreeable task, it is impossible to get cattle across the country owing to tho
numerous streams Mocked by fallen
timber and beaver dams, which makes
the land so Boft and boggy that animals ore invariably mired if an attempt
is made to get them back to the homesteads off the rond. Almost every section has been taken up in this part of
the district, hut live settlors have lately
thrown up their claims, us they could
neither get cattle onto tlieir farms or
produce to market. A road built
through the township at a cost of
82000 would serve the present purposes, and the Bottlers would be well
pleased, but unless this is done a number more of tlio homesteaders will bo
obliged to throw their claims up, A
petition has gone forward asking the
government to make a road through
this section, and it is to be hoped they
will see the advisability of immediate
action in the matter.
The Library Concert.
Tho concert in aid of the public li
brary tunic place last night in Herring's
opera house; and was largely attended.
Tho programme was opened by the
Happy Hottentots in ono of their excellent selections, which was well received by the audience, Mr. Hamber
then sang "Kathleen Mavournoen " in
capital style, after which Miss Higginson sang " WiU you remember me,"
very sweetly, and was enthusiastically
encored. This was Miss Higginson's
debut beforo a Westminster audience,
and a most successful one it was. The
instrumental duet by Miss Rand and
Miss Hill was played in that perfect
style and feeling for whicli botli these
accomplished young ladies are noted.
Mr. Glover recited "The wrock of the
Julia Plante" and as an encore sang
"The Raffle for a Stove". The duet
"Maying', byMissMcBrideund Mr.
Keary was really an excellent performance, and was one of the best pieces of
the evening. . Miss McBride has not
appeared before tho public for some
time, but it iB to be hoped her sweet
voice will not again bo allowed to remain silent for so long n period.
"Ehren (rn tho Rhine," by Mr. Rickman, called for nn encore, buth of
which were given in that rattling stylo
for which this favorite is noted. NAt
this point tho curtain was lowered and
in a few minutes raised revealing tu
view twelve gallant volunteers with
Sergt D'Amour at their head. On tho
word of command the men advanced,
took position for bayonet exorcise and
then went through the different movements in 'a very cretlitablo manner.
Tho men were then divided into two
parties and advanced to the charge in
a very realistic stylo, crossed swnrds
and placed a couplo of mon hor* de
combat, on which scene the curtain
fell. The ''Happy Hottentots" onco
more favored the audience with a capital selection and in answer to tho encore gave "St, Patrick's Day" in
splendid style. ''The Quaker,"
by Mr. Keary, was awarded with
thunders of applause, and although
this gentleman tried to evade the on-
core demanded, it waa not allowed,
and he was obliged to respond.
Miss Sutherland sung " Take back the
Ring" with much feeling and sweetness and was most heartily applauded.
" Billy McQee," by Mr. Glover called
for an eneore which was partially given. An instrumental selection by
Miss DeBeck and Miss Rand was given
in a masterly manner and cannot be.
too highly praised. " Never to Part,"
by Mrs. Moresby was rendered both
gracefully, sweetly and in perfect taste,
and in responso to the encore demanded "The Flag that Braved" was givon
in a very taking style. The camp scene
followed, and was a most successful
exhibition. Several songs wore sung,
accompanied by a little side play ;
the wholo was pronounced a success.
The tent, camp fire, stacks ol. rifles
and sentries on beat were ail very realistic and gave general satisfaction.
Ool. McGregor wishes to publicly
thank all who favored tho consort by
their attendance, and also to thank
those who so kindly aided ita success
by assisting in tho programme.

From Okanagan.
Correspondence of the Columbian.
Okanagan, March 21.—Mr. D. Molntyre went to Cherry Creek two
weeks ago to resume work on his lead
there. He intends taking out a large
quantity of quartz this season, and
may erect a stamp mill before winter.
Messrs. J. Morrison & Co. have
three men at Chorry Creek, sinking a
shaft in search for the rich silver lead
believed to exist thero. If it be there,
it will be found by this company, without doubt, for they are well gifted
with perseverance and means. The
number of men will shortly be increased, and the work pushed vigorously.   May thoy find it.
Something over two years ngo a
towusito wns surveyed at Vernon. The
lots which composed it hsve nil been
sold; and lust week an additional tract
of land was Inid out in lots to meet the
demand. How is this for progress in
thu interior 1
The waaon road to Cherry Creek is
in a most deplorable condition; nnd it
was at great risk of life und supplies
that the above mentioned miners managed to reach there iu safety. It is
hoped the government will make it
passable at as early a date as possible,
and aho vote means to complete it the
distance surveyed last summer, nnd
thus enable thoso miners to take in
tho machinery which will soon ho required there.
Farming operations <*f an active nature may now bo seen on aU sides; and
this season will see u greatly increased
acreage under cultivation. Many wild
flowers are in bloom, and the (trass
shows a fino length fur this day of the
year.

8pepi»ltothoeoltimbiRUi
Vh-wkh, Mar. 20;—The q-setlng
of miners called :it Nanaimo (or BatUf-
day fell through on account of u poor
attendance. A large meeting ot
miners was held at Wellington this
morning, and largely attended by Nanaimo miners, who failed to induce
the Wellington men to quit work.
They decided to return to work ns
usual, and await the result of the bill
now before the legislature to prohibit
the Chinese being employed in tho
mines. If this bill is not pusscd the
miners will probably inaugurate a big
strike at all the mines in the district.
Tho troublo is gotten up by a fow agitators, who probably desire notoriety
at tbe expenso of tho miners. The
miners are woll treated in all the
mines, and well paid. In most cases
they were employers of the Chinese
themselves. Tbey receive so much per
ton for all coal raised. They put in n
blast, knock down several tons of coal,
and go up above after a few hours
work, leaving the Chinese, whom they
pay small wages, to load the coal on
the cars and send it up. Somo of the
white miners havo been, by this means,
making good pay,' said in some cases to
be ns high as 97 a day, and averaging
probably over #3. It is not believed
it is really the miners themselves who
are agitating for the strike, as it is
hard for the consuming publio to boo
what they have to kick about. A few
days will probably decido the matter
whether strike or not.
Nanaimo, Mar. 27.—At tho miners
mass meeting, hold nt Wellington yesterday, to discuss tho Chinese clause
in tho mines' act, all miners from the
V. C. Co's. mines attended. The
mines both at Wellington and Nanaimo
closed yesterday. A resolution wns
carried urging tho passage of the anti-
Chinese clause, A motion to stop
work if tho Chinese clause was defeated
was not carried. The feeling is against
taking any extreme measures, but
strongly urge the exclusion of Chinese
from underground. Tho meeting adjourned till after the bill eamo before
the house again. The mines at Wellington and Nanaimo are working today. No trouble is anticipated forthe
presont, at least.
Mothers!
Castoria is recommended by physicians
for children teething. It is a purely vegetable preparation, Its ingredients are
published around each  bottle.     It  is
tdousant to the taste and absolutely harm-
em. It relieves constipation, regulates
the bowels, quiets pain, cures dlarrhrca
and wind colic, allays feverishness, destroys worms, and prevents convulsions,
soothes the child and gives it refreshing
and natural sleep. Castoria is tho child-
reus' panacea—tno mothers' friend, 35
doses, 35 cents. dwmli20ml
As Parmelee's Vegetable Pills contain Mandrake and Dandelion, they cure
Liver and Kidney Complaints with unerring certainty. They also contain
Roots and' Herbs which have specific virtues truly wonderful in their action on
the stomach and bowels. Mr. K. A,
Cairncvoss, Shakespeare, writes; "Icon-
eider Parmelee's Pills an excellent remedy for Biliousness and Derangement of
the Liver, hiving used tliem myself for
some time."
