Tke III.ellllv.cl Mines.
Mr. J. H. Oollins, J?, (i. . who
spent some time at Illecilliwaet, to-
turned to Viotoria the other day
after visiting a number of mines in
the Pacific States. In an interview
with a Colonist reporter he gave
some interesting information respecting the Illecilliwaet mines. He
said the mines were situated at an
elevation of 2,000 feet, and are surrounded by mountains rising to more
than double that height. The
mountains recently found to be
argentiferous lie between the north
and south forks of the Illecilliwaet
river. They are composed of black,
highly carbonaceous slates, un-
fossiliferous so for as is known at
present and containing a good deal
of pyritous matter, These slates
dip at moderate angles to the west
of north, and they are traversed by
numerous quartz veins, some being
distinct fissure veins or "lodes,"
while others are veins of segregation, ramifying in all directions,
Most of the fissure veins are found
to be more or less metalliferous and
this is also the case with some of
the segregated veins. Not enough
is known as yet to establish any
hard and fast rules, but it would
seem that the veins yeilding galena
and running in a northwesterly direction are crossed by others yielding argentiferous copper, running
somewhat to the south of west.
The northwesterly veins seem to be
the largest, those running south of
west the best defined. It would
seem, too, that so far the veins
yielding galena are the larger, while
those yielding gray copper have the
higher silver contents; but, as already stated/the amount of exploration work done so far does not yet
warrant any very definite generalization. A great many claims have
been taken up on both sides of the
mountain, but as yet ores have only
been shipped from tjn-ee, viz: the
Isabella, the Oartmoney, and the
Lanark, tho first two yielding cupreous ores, while the latter has
yielded argentiferous galena. The
three mines have altogether yielded
during tbo pant acaaou Q60  ton.   of
shipping ore averaging, perhaps 1)75
to $80 per ton. A considerable
quantity of ore of lower grade has
also been extracted, but as the mines
are situated at groat elevations—tho
Lanark being more than 3,000 feet
above the railroad track—as to the
ore, it has to be brought down to
the station by trains of pack-mules
or horses at a cost of $7 per ton,
these low grade ores have to be left
on the dump for the present—such
portions at least as have not been
thrown over the dump and hopelessly lost A great deal of talk
has prevailed as to the asseys of ore
from these mines, and it is likely
enough that small samples of true
silver ores have been met with from
time to time. I have, however,
made the following assays myself of
ores whioh I oan guarantee to
be genuine products of the district:
No, 1, average of several samples of
best ore contained 75 oz. silver per
ton. No. 2, gray copper ore from the
Isahella, very pure, 308 oz. silver
per ton. No. 3, from a mine at tho
north side of the mountains, 80 oz.
silver per ton. No. 4, from an undeveloped vein with 40 per cent, of
lead, 20 oz. silver per ton. Those,
Mr. Collins said, cannot lie regarded
as discouraging results, although
they afford no warrant for the extravagant demands of some of the
"prospectors." Considering tho
moderate size of tho lodes hitherto
discovered, and thoir difficulty of
access, it is certain that thoy cannot
be profitably worked without the
expenditure (it must, too, be judicious expenditure) of a good deal
of money. Some consolidation of
interests will also be necessary,
more especially in the provision of
tramways or other means of transit,
and of mills for the concentration of
the ore. The construction of about
seven miles of road up the north fork
of the Illecilliwaet rivor is also a
matter of immense importance for
the development of tho veins on the
north side of the mountain, but this,
I understand, will probably be done
by the provincial government during
the coining season. But if the district is opened up as here indicated,
I bolieve it will prove to be very
important, and that it will at no
distant date contribute materially
to the mineral productions of the
province,

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCIIKB.
DR. 1IERIIV DECLINES.
Brooklyh, N. Y. Dec. 11.—Rov.
Lyman Abbott preached in Plymouth
Ohurch this morning, and at tho close
of the servioes read the following
cablegram from Rov. Dr. Berry, of
Wolverhampton, England, declining
the call to become Mr. Beecher's successor; Charles Albert Berry greets
Plymouth. Appreciates its confidence,
reciprocates its affection, prays for its
prosperity, but cannot accept tho pastorate. Home claims, inexorable duty
hero commands. Letter mailed. Ood
bless and guide you." The decision of
Dr.. Berry caused great disappointment.
PROHIBITION IN KANSAS.
Topeka, Kans., Dec. 11.—Judge
Brewer, of the United Supreme Oourt
yesterday issued a decree declaring
the Woodruff brewery at Lawrence a
common nuisance, and directing the
United States Marshal to abate the
same. The decree also perpetually
enjoins tlio brewery from manufacturing or selling any intoxicating liquors.
This is the first brewery that has been
declared a nuisance under the prohibition laws of Kansas, .and .the decree is
in accordance with the late decision
of tho United States Supreme Court
on tile prohibition question.
SULLIVAN AMONQ THE PRINCES.
London, Dec. 13.—The success of
John L. Sullivan in Ireland is quite
as pronounced as that whioh he met
with in England. Prince Edward of
Saxo Weimar, the Commander of the
Forces of Ireland, proved to be as potent a patron of the American pugilist
in Dublin a. tho Prince of Wales was
in London, and thoBostonianis reaping
a full harvest in consequoneo. Prince
Edward's reception of Sullivan last
evening was of n most fraternal character, and the lattor's - easy manner
clearly indicated that he had already
learned to comider Princes as rather
common place persons, Sullivan gives
an exhibition at Waterford to-night
whero almost tho entire houso was
sold in advance of his arrival.
THE DVKAMITK LEAODE.
London, Dec. 13.—The Ti'mes states
upon the authority of a Farnellite,
trhoflo namo tho pu>T>cr io undet - agreement not to disclose, that Dr. Hamilton Williams, of New York, will succeed O'Donovnn Kossa as lender of the
extreme Nationalists in New York.
Dr. Williams, the Times alleges, has a
fund of $200,000 at'his disposal, with
whioh to defray the expenses of organizing assassinations, dynamite explosions, etc., by sending to England Irish-
American agents who will, however,
not work directly, but will endeavor
to find men among the criminals in
large towns to assassinate public men
and to conduct dynamite explosions.
These men, the paper asserts, are already at work, and are well provided
with funds and everything else needful.
The Timw' informant also states that
200 pounds of dynamite is stored in
London in a locality kopt secret from
all, except those in the confidence of
the trusted agents. He, himself, professes not to be awaro of the hiding
place of the explosives, but expresses
a hopo that the police will be able to
discover ita whereabouts through the
medium of this statement
THE   UROFTER8.— 0.  P.   lt.    STOCK
ADVANCING.
London, Dec. 13.—Much satisfaction is expressed in Canadian circle,
hero over the cheerful tone of Sir
Charles Tupper's reported statement,
which he made at Chicago whilst en
route to Winnipeg, that the Commission would lead to a satisfactory settlement. A doubt, however, seems to
exist in general circles as to whether,
iu viow of President Cleveland's message to Congress, the United States
will bo willing to givo Canada special
reciprocity similar to which sho enjoyed under the treaty of 1854.
Aa regards tho crofters of the west
coast of Scotland, Mr. Alexander
Begg interviewed Mr. Goschen, the
Chancollur of the Exchequer. Mr.
Lothian Smith states thnt the Government distinctly offered lo advance
£150,000 to the British Columbia Government at 31-8 per cont. intorest for
the settlement of tho Croftor fishermen on Vancouver Island. The pro-
P"sri! is being submitted to the British
Cnlriinbin Govornment, but It is hardly expected tbat suoh high terms will
meet withaccoptnneo.
The Canadian Paciiic Railway stocks
cirntinuo to ndvnnco on the strength
of the reports of the Government's intention to extend the guarantee As
regards thia matter there ia, however,
no ground to ohnngo tho opinion expressed in your cable uf the 10th inst.

Ottawa. Deo. 14.—The supremo
court hns delivered judgment in the
case of British Columbia vs. Canada.
This was an action brought to decide
whether precious metals in and upon
public luud granted by the legislature
of British Columbia in aid of the Canadian Pacifio railroad were vested in
tho crown a. represented by the government of Canada. Tlie chum being
denied by the legislature of B. O., tne
case was brought to tht supreme oourt
on an appeal from the decision' of
Justice Henry who rendered judgment
in favor of the provinoe. The •uptime
court reverses thst judgment, there
being two dissenting opinions. Tht
Chief Justice and Justices Strong and
Gwynn were for reversal of judgment,
and Justices Henry and Fournier

NO REVOCATION.
Philadelphia, Dec. 14.—Wharton
Barker says: "Mr, Mitkiewiti represents no one in the matter but himself. He is not a director though ht
•till has some interest in the enterprise. We are going ahead with our
work. We have heard of no revocation in our concession, except through

It is not easy to determine what
will be the result of the fight now
going on between Mr. Balfour and
the home rule members of parliament. Mr. Balfour has fivo or six
members of parliament now locked
up because of breaches committed
by them against the stringent laws
whfch were passed for tho purpose
of suppressing the land' league. If
this system of wholesale incarceration is allowed to go on the danger
of a government defeat may disappear. The government may find
occasion to imprison home rulers
enough to keep its majority intact,
and it will come to be a question
how long it will take the arbitrary
power of tho government to provoke an effective protest from the
British people.
It seems almost certain that dynamite, that terrible agent of destruction, will play an important
part in the wars of the future.
The performances of the new dynamite gun have in every case been
satisfactory. At a trial held the
other day to ascertain the efficiency
of the new dynamite shell invented
by Lieut. Graydon,the mo3t successful results were obtained. We nre
told that the first shell penetrated
the 15-inch turret target and then
exploded, demolishing the target so
that it could not lie used again.
These shells are made of steel, and
nothing can save the ship which
they succeed in penetrating. It
seems us if offensive weapons,. in
naval warfare especially, are making
much more rapid progress than appliances of dofence. There are very
few vessels afloat that can safely
stand before the enormous guns that
are being constructed; and when
these guns come to be loaded with
dynamite shells, their destructive
powers will be vastly increased.
We have learned some additional
particulars respecting the case of
the young Ohina woman referred to
in our issue of Monday, who was
lately married to a Chinaman in
thit city. It seems that her former
husband, who is now at Seattle, has
to a certain extent renounced
heathenism, and on this account the
highbinders of Victoria stole his
wife from him and sold her to the
Chinaman who married her in this
city. The first husband would be
only too glad to recover his wife,
but he is afraid tp come to Victoria
for the purpose of claiming her, bo
cause his countrymen declare that
they will assassinate him. A threat
of this sort means a great deal mora
to a Chinaman than to a white man,
for these people have very effective
means for carrying such threats into
execution, jj Affer the young woman
arrived in this city she was asked if she wished to return to her
husband, to which she replied in the
negative. It does not follow that
this reply expressed her real wish.
To those who understand the ways
of Chinamen it il well known that
persons in these circumstances usually make such statements as they
have been instructed to make by
those into whose clutches they have
fallen, In the case of the three
China girls brought to San Francisco a week ago this fact showed itself. The girls, like parots, repeated the stories that had been taught
them by the old hag who bought
them in Hong Kong. It was smooth
enough sailing for awhile, until the
cross-questioning began; but the
girls finally got beyond their instructions, broke down, and confessed to
thefacts. Having squealed on thoir
owner, they were at once prostrated
by fear, declaring that they would
certainly be killed for disclosing the
devilish plot of which they themselves were the victims. When
uked if they were willing to return
to Hong Kong, they replied that
they were not, because when it be
came known there what they had
done they would bo killed. This
belief in unerring vengeance is one
of the secret influences by means of
which the cunning slave dealers ob-
. tain perfect control of their credulous victims. It may lie, therefore,
that the young woman brought to
this city would have gladly returned
to her tint husband if she had been
free to follow hor own will; hut she
war. living in constant fear of dreaded- evil, and dare not disturb the
programme laid out by her owner.
Her ntw husband, we are told, is a
gambler, and proposes to take her to
Kamloops. Is it not possible to
break up this organization—this
secret terrorism—by means of which
our laws are systematically defied,
and our most sacred rites made the
cloak under whieh shameful practical-may become lawful! If things
are permitted to go on thus, the
time may soon eome when no man's
lift Will be safe, be he Chinaman or
white man.

Your Children
Are constantly exposed to danger from
Colds, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs. For such ailments, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered} affords speedy relief and cure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children woro
afflicted, we used, during tlio past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all the medicines which have
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst, Preceptress, Homo for Little
Wanderers, Doncaster, Md.
My children have heen peculiarly sub-
ject to attacks of Croup, and I failed to
nnd any effective remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves tho
ditllculty of breathing and invariably
cures the complaint.—David 6. Storks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. Y.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
tn my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. Tills medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to tho lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, Ptatavfflo. Mioh.
I find no medicino so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. It saved the life of my
little boy. only six months old, carrying
him safely through the worst case of
Whooping Cough I over saw.—Jane

"Scarlet Latter." In Samuel Longfellow's memoir of his brother there is an
entry from tho poet's diary in which he
t 'lis how .1 "society woman," at whose
table he was dining oue day, aaked him,
"Oh, Mr. Longfellow, havo you ever
published a boot; ?" This was after two
thirds of his lifo stork was done. The
other day, a gentleman came into a barber's shop jufct as Dr. Holmes was going
out, and occupied the chair that the
autocrat had vacated, "Do you know
who that was that just wen*, out?" said
the barber Tho visitor was curious to
see what account of Dr. Holmes the bar;
ber would givn and shook his head.
"Why," said tho barber "that's old Dr.
Holmes." "And who, pray, Is Dr.
Holmes?' "Oh, he's been a doctor here
a great many years. I believe he ain't
practical' any more, but he's thought a

A Vraaelnuui'. Mowum of Death,
Among tho numerous colhnrtui. nf oiw
riosities ot every kind who abound in
hiris there is ono wealthy virtuose who
unuscB himself by collecting deaths'
heads and skeletons lantaBtioeBjr.oried
or modeled in marble, earthenware,
wood or precious atones. These he has
gathered together ih ■ kind ot museum
of death, which at first sight seems
hideona ud "macabre," but, on closer
Inspection, proves highly Interesting.
Some of tbe headshave been detached
bom those old mediaeval rosary beads,
which were usually ornamented on one
side with the profile ol a king or a saint
and on the other with tho grinning face
of a skeleton. One of the most hideous^
yet at the game time moat artistically ex.
ecuted, oi the flgires ia tL
engaged in taking IMMSltnli) bones the
"conqueror worms," which have been
claiming him as their own, The collector has given a lugubrious reality to the
objects in his museum by placing here
and there among them the skulls of dead
women. .

The keeper of * bird and pot anima
Store said: ....
Thore are some ladies tbat purebaso
lotliing but white rate. I osked one I.i 1/
a/hut she did with them. She blushed a
ittlo and said she let them sleep on her
lillow with her. She fondled them and
raught them littlo tricks. I have had
piite a demand for young alligators.
Host of the purchasers, curiously enough,
ire ladies. Vou would not think there
vas anything particularly likeable in an
initiator with a mouth running nearly
lalf tho length of his body, but some
adics think so. I have seen them throw
)its of meat into an aquarium containing
i six-inch alligator, and, aB hia mouth
lapped open and closed on the dainty,
hey would exclaim, "How perfectly
ovelyl" They use tbo alligators to look
it and feed.
An alligator looks very comical when
ibout to swallow a fly. Ho rushes at it
vith open jaws, and brings them togethor
ro violently that the water spouts out at
rach side of his mouth. He getshimself
n the most grotesque attitudes, and is
dways making unexpected moves. A
ady came from Hoboken, recently, and
raught a ten-inch reptile. Sho also
raught two dollars' worth of fishes. She
vent away apparently pleased with her
■urchasoB, Soveral days afterward sliu
ramo again and said that all her fishes
lad mysteriously disappeared the night
ihe took.them home, but tho alligator
still remained. She sold sho hud put
;hem all together in an aquarium. Of
nurse, I told her, the alligator had swallowed the fishes. She said, "Oh, my, tlio
nasty thing!" and vowed sho would
sell It.
An alligator over four inches long Is
dangerous in an aquarium. Most of
those 1 sell are from 1 lorida. It takes a
long time—more than two years, sometimes—for an aquarium-bred alligator to
grow two inches.1 If they were left to
burrow In a muddy pond swamp, they
would trow nearly twice their length in a
year.   Fresh water seema to hurt them.

Oregon salmon.
On the trip of the Alaskan to Astoria
recently there was a gentleman from
Maine, evidently a man of intelligence
and wide traveling. He was interested
in the canneries and the fishing, and, as
usual with strangers, asked questions of
his fellow travelers concerning the industry.
George Sheppard remarked to the
stranger that ours wero the largest and
finest salmon in the world.
"Thoy may be finer flavored than our
Kennebec salmon," remarked the stranger, "but they are certainly not larger."
"How largo are your big. salmon ?"
queried Sheppard.
"Well, the largest I ever heard of
weighed nineteen aud three-quarter
pounds," answered tho Yankee. "I did
not see the fish, but I have no doubt in
tho world that it weighed as stated, nearly twenty pounds."
Sheppard said nothing but whon tho
boat reached Astoria he took the stranger to Hume's cannery. It happened
that about two hundred extra line Iish
had been brought in that afternoon, ten
or mora weighing fifty pounds each, and
very few less than thirty. The strangei
looked at the lot auk remarked, good
naturedly : "Excuse me sir; I guess 1
don't know any thing about big salmon,"

A singular Instance of tho contagiousness of consumption is related by a
1'i'L'iirh medical journal. A young man
who had contracted bronchitis mnrric 1 n
lictiUhy- woluan. Wlttim r v.ur hit itiiid
of "consumption; not long iift'enviii'il his
willow's lungs were found to be fatally
diseased; and their child speedily followed them. One of their neighbors, a
robust young woman, was suddenly attacked with the same disease. Whilo
she had called repeatedly at the bouse of
tho consumptive family, she had never
remained in the sick room over night;
but sho had eaten chickens which had
been killed on their farm. As it was reported that several of theso fowls had
il ed prematurely, tho medical antliniites
decided to have other chickens kilio land
examined. It was then discovered Hint
the lovc'.s had contracted consumption
tlieir livers containing the bacilli now
recognized as characteristic of tho disease. These fowls had swallowed the
sputa of the Infected family uud contracted the disease; and tho unlucky
neighbor's daughter, who had eaten ono
of the fowl's liven, became a victim in
her turn.
It Wa. th. tbrifly WU..
When I was married—it was several
yean ago -I was in receipt of a comfortable income, for a young man, and we
went to housekeeping in very good style,
1- hsd saved up about $1,200 and furnished iny hbuso with ifchandsornely. 1 paid
$30 a mouth rent. We lived in a fashionable quarter of the city and traded nt a
market and grocery near by. I'aid cash
for all purchases. I kopt a little cash
book for the first year. We had a groat
deal of company at first. The beefsteak.,
chops, roast beef, and fowls wero frequent
visitors. * I bought closely, and wo wero
careful aud prudent. Never an ounce of
food was wasted. At the doje of the
first year I reckoned lip iny expenditures
for the tablo and struck an average. I
won't say I was not astonished at the result, for I was somewhat amazed to find
that I had spent an average of only
seventy-eight cents a day throughout tho
year. That is $5.40 per week. Kent, and
provisions are much cheaper, now. I
Will admit I cannot see why, with a
thrifty wife, a mat canhot get along with
t'.j a week.—Boston Record.
One day a gentleman entered a book
store and asked for "The Autocrat of the
llreakfast Table." Tho proprietor of tho
store looked through his shelves, and reported that he hadn't it in stock. The
stranger seemed disappointed, and in an
undecided Way remarked: "Well, I don't
know just what I will do, then. The
fact of the matter is, that a voting lady
friend of mine is going to get married,
and I want to buy her a present that
would be appropriate. Couldn't you
recommend me eome other good cookbook?" The bookseller wrote to Dr.
Holmes, telling him of the incident, and
roc ivod the response, "Why didn't you
suggest I'rofessor Cook's lectares?"

A Creaking Hinge
Is dry and turns hard, until oil is applied,
after which it niovos easily. When the
joints, or hinges, of the body are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot he moved without causing the moat
excruciating pains. Ayer's SarsapariUa,
by lta action on the blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
oity, many most remarkable cures. In
cases which baffled the efforts of the
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could give tho names of
many individuals who havo been cured
by taking this medicino. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
thia, and all othor diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's SarsapariUa.—E. H.
Lawrence, M. D., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer's SarsapariUa cured mo of Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It haa eradicated every trace ot
disease from my system.— E. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Belmont, Lowell, Mass.
I waa, during many months, a sufferer
from ohronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all the
remedies I could Hnd, until I commenced
using Ayor's SarsapariUa. I took aev-
eral Dottles of this preparation, and was
speedily restored to health.—J. Fream,

'Treatment by Absorption has for some
ae been recognized by Medical Men to
be tbe most Blmple and effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Otgans, "Curatives," butln cases of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon successful
treatment wns practicably impossible until tbe Introduction of the Starr Kidney

and effective than any quantity of internal
Medicinal dosing. Worn immediately over
the seat of Disease, Its curative properties
become absorbed by the diseased and enfeebled Organs.contlnnonsly and directly,
as required to Insure in return their healthy aotion and original vigour. It Is comfortable to the patient and pleasant in Its

confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS;-
The Boouruy offered to polioy holders is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business in Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the polioy
holden cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, its cash statement showing every item of Income and how expen-
Its position Is ascertained annually from

.Its progress has been unexampled In
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Ita policies are Indisputable aftor three
years, and nonforfeitable after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon an equitable basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other olass. which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

A despatch from, Ottawa published
elsewhere announces that the supreme
court of Canada has decided against
this province in the case involving tho
ownership of precious metals iu the
railway belt. This is a matter of considerable Interest to the province, as
there is every probability that the
mining resources of the territory lying
within the belt will prove very valuable. It will be seen that a considerable difference of opinion existed
among the judges of the court, two
being in favor of British Columbia and
three against. Under the circumstances an appeal  may possibly  be
taken to England.

Tbe Work ofthe Snag-bout,
The channel improvements at the
mouth of the river nre completed fur
this season, nnd the results from the
changes made will be looked forward
to with interest by all. As the whole
thing is really more or less of an experiment it ia diffioult to foretell what
degree of success the improvements
will result in, but from the deepening
of the channel in places worked on, in
the earlier part of the season, it seems
almost a certainty that the expectations of the most sanguine will bo realized. As an instance of what has
already been done it was found lust
Saturday that buoy No. 1 was floating
in 17 fathoms ot water; this buoy was
moored lust Spring in Si fathoms.
The snag-boat has driven a row of piles
over 2000 foet long ngainst which has
been anchored the mattresses, 20 in
number and 100 feet each in length.
After the high wator next Spring the
channel will bo surveyed fagain and
tlio results ot the work arrived at. it
is now almost a certainty that the
water in the channel before this time
next ytar will be of sufficient depth
to float any vessel that sails in  these
waters.

Onr Public Scbdols.
Tbe Christmas examinations in the
public schools of the city began this
morning. Tho first division examined was that of Miss Homer, wliere
40 promises of coming greatness were
put through various exercises a* a test
of the progress made during the term.
There were no visitors present except
three trustees, Capt. Pittendreigh and
Messrs. Geo. Turner, C.E., and J. A.
Calbick, Tho little ones acquitted
themselves in a very creditable way,
and to the satisfaction of the trustees.
Afterwards Mias Davidson's division
was examined in reading, spoiling,
grammar, geography, and arithmetic,
and the questions asked were answered
with a promptness which showed very
careful and correct training. The
proceedings wero varied somewhat by
appropriate recitations given by Arthur
Cochrane nnd Gerty Bobson. At the
close of the examination Laura Elliott,
on behalf of the pupils, went up to the
ftlatform and read a very affectionate
ittle addross to Miss Davidson and
handed her a very pretty work-box aa
an expression of esteem. The teacher
waa visibly affected by this unexpected
proof of regard, and thanked her pupils
very feelingly for their kindness.
Capt. Pittendrigh. Mr. J. A. Calbick,
and Mr, D, Robson spoke n few words
to the school, aud expressed much
satisfaction at the viaible evidences of
progress, after whioh the children were
dismissed. There were about 16 visitors preaent, most of them boing
ladies. There were 46 pupils in attendance. In the afternoon the department conducted by Miss Rogers
was examined. There were forty-
four pupils present, and about
forty visitors, among whom were
4 trustees, Rev. R. Jamieson, Dr.
Brown, nnd soveral other prominent
citizens. The pupils were carefully
examined in a wide range of subjects
and the responses wero given with a
promptness and accuracy indicative of
excellent training. At intervals reci
tations Wero given by the following
pupils: May Douglas, Ella Grunt,
Maggie Kenry, Maud Keary, Eva
Insloy, Stella Grant, Ethel Cunningham, Nellie Jackson. When the programme had been completed, May
Douglas read a very kind address to
the teacher, on behalf of the school,
and Murtio Ackerman presented her
with an elegant lady's companion, for
which Mias Rogers roturned thanks.
Capt. Pittendrigh presented the three
certificates won by pupils of the sohool
for entrance to the high school, and
after brief addresses from Dr. Brown
nnd Messrs. Geo. Turner nnd D. Robson, the school was dismissed.

for his induction in the event of his
accepting the call, us follows: Dr.
Fraser to preside, J. Oormack to

The remits from the assembly were
then considered; regarding the constitution of the assembly, it was amended
so us to reduce the number of commissioners from one fourth to one
sixth, and the articles regarding
payment of expenses adopted. Tho
remit ou marriage with a deceased
wifes sister was adopted and the presbytery discerned that discipline shall
not be exercised in case of those who
contract such marriages. The remit
in book of forms, were referred to a
committee consisting of Rev. D.
Fraser, D. McBae and Hon. Jno.
Robson. The presbytery then adjour-

Liwle Rock, Ark., Dec. 10.—The
north bound passenger train on the
St. Louis, Arkansas and Texas Bail-
road was boarded last night by three
masked men at Genoa, a small station,
10 miles from Texnrkana. They mounted the engine and compelled the engineer to stop at a dense wood, 2 miles
from the station. Tho robbers then
broke in the express  car door, over-
!lowered tho messenger and forced
lim to unlock the safe, from which it
isatated they  secured $40,000, nnd
turbing the passengers or the mail
agent. Conductor Nichols made several attempts to get out and protect
the.express matter but the robbers'
Winchesters soon drovo him back.
The Government has offered $200 reward and die Express Company $500,
for tho capture of the men. The
whole country surrounding the scene
of the robbery has been alive to-day
with a posse scouting for them. Tho
authorities are confident they will ultimately capture them.
