The free use of onions for the table has always been considered by
most people a healthy and desirable
vegetable, and but for their odor,
which is objectionable to many, they
would be found more generally on
our dining tables. For a cold on the
chest thore is no better apocifio, for
most persons, than well boiled or
roasted onions. They may not agree
with every one, btit to persons with
good digestion they wii! not only be
found to be a most excellent remedy
for a cough, and the clogging of the
bronchial tubes which is usually the
cause of the cough, but if eaten freely at the outset of a cold, they will
usually break up what promised,
from the severity of the attack, to
have been a serious one.. A writer
in one of our medical journals recently recommended the giving of
young raw onions to children three
or four times a week, and when they
get too large and strong to be eaten
raw, then boil and roast them, but
not abandon their free use. Another writer, advocating thoir use,
says: During unhealthy seasons,
when diphtheria and like contagious
diseases prevail, onions ought to be
eaten in the spring of the year at
least once a week, Onions are invigorating und prophylactic beyond
description. Further, I challenge
the medical fraternity or any mother
to point out a place where children
havo died from diphtheria or scarlatina nnginosa, etc., where onions
were freely used.—Scientific American.
fault is on the side of the lajty I
They give, ahd some of them give
loyally, but do they desire to withhold from giving and yet at tbe
same time appear to give! I hope
that something on this subject may
be said and something important
done to the putting down of this
scandal upon our sacred religion

BIYOND BBDEUmOK.
Chicago, March 23.—It is generally
reoognized here that the bottom has
fallen out of the Burlington strike,
thst the men are beaten beyond redemption, and that the brotherhood
will hereafter have no grip on the "Q"
road. The men themselves admit this
in private conversations, but Chief
Arthur says that the strike will never
be declared off so long as there is a
dollar in the treasury or that fends
can be raised by assessments. The
Burlington company, in naming advertisements, announces this morning
that it has surmounted its difficulties,
that its management remains in the
hands of its officials, snd that in fact
through trains will be resumed on
Sunday. The news comes from St
Paul that the brotherhood will hereafter move "Q" cars on the roads centering at that point, and so far as Chicago is concerned, the strike hss become a dead issue. It is probable that
the headquarters of the brotherhood at
the Grand Pacific Hotel will be closed
on Monday, and that Messrs. Arthur,
Sergeant and other grand officers will
return home.
A SEW BILL.
Dublin, March S3.—The Irish
fitnu says that the government is
•meditating the introduction of a bill
ttpunging arrears antedating a period
of two years. Estates upon which the
plan of campaign has been adopted
are to be especially exempted
and the tenants subjected to simple
bankruptcy for a legal moiety of the
arrears, other creditors are to share
equally with the landlords.

There is an evil, and though I
cannot say it is the only evil, yet 1
can and will say it is a great evil-
it is tho way that the church has of
raising money, It appears to me
that most of the existing churches
seem to think and aot on the principle that the end sanctifies the means;
and accordingly any means, from indulgences down to auction cakes, is
made use of to gain the end—money.
This certainly is an awful disgrace 1
To think that in this enlightened
ago, and in this emphatically religious province, the different religions to-day would so give themselves away as to sanction such
schemes to get gain I And to me
the worst part of the matter soeins
to be this: So many of the clergy
and laity ask the question, "What
harm is there in iti" Surely there
is something wrong somewhere, But
at whose door does the wrong lie is
tho question. I verily believe that if
the clergy of any particular body
should decide to shut down upon
these things the laity of that body
would chime in and co-operate with
them. Then from this standpoint
does it appear as though the fault
is on the side of tbe clergy! Are
they nfrnid to take the stand—we
will not have these things to reign
over us t What need they be afraid
of 1 But, however, the fault may
be nn the other side too. By the
use of these unscriptimil, unrighteous menus money is uurissed very
easily, and it saves the pocket.
Dot's it appear  from thia thtt the

New Yobk, Maroh 24.—Thero is
trouble in Northern Pacific and Oregon railway snd Navigation company

THE OATUNO OUN.
New York, March 24.—The announcement is mode to-day that tht

property of foreigners. An English
syndicate wants ft and is willing to
pay a large sum. Dr. R. J. Gstiing,
the inventor, said that hia company
had hopes for years that tht United
States would buy the gun. "Tht
United States doesn't teem to want
it," hs said. " We do not feel that
the United States government hat
shown a liberal spirit, tnd consider
thtt as our own government does not
seem disposed to secure control ef tha
invention, we on justified in seeking
porohasera elsewhere. Isn't sty
what will be the outcome of the negotiations with the English capitalists,
but it is not probable tS'ey will agree
to our terms for foreign, patents. The
gun may eventually become tht possession of a foreign government." I

London, March 24.—It would hardly be worth while to notice tht often-
repeated rumor of the critical mental
condition of Queen Victoria wen it
not so frequently reiterated in the last
few days, and did not circumtttnoet
give a certain air of probability to
aome of the assertions to evident tt
different periods since the death of tht
Prince Consort, It is now said that
recent events hare markedly developer!
Her Majesty's unfortunate tendency to
melancholy. The excitemtnt consequent upon the death of Emperor William, and the ascent of her daughter te
the proud position which she now occupies, have affected her visibly. Now
comes the probability of tbat daughter's widowhood within a short time,
and her relegation to comparative insignificance. At the marriage of tilt
Princess, 30 years ago, her prospects of
speedily attaining to a long reign were
felt to be excellent, but the exceptional longevity of the late Emperor stUli-
fiod all calculations, and it is generally believed that at the imminent death
of her husband the two widowed sovereigns will be again united, never
more to be separated in life: English*
men have been so tcdustoHied to co»- •■
tider their countrymen and countrywomen the superior df othisr peoples
that they can hardly realise the Unmans were not profoundly grateful for
the alliance ot Victoria's daughter with
the eldest son of their' m'orikreh. In
fact tho tutors felt (hat thit condescension was all on the other
tide. Bismarck, tt is well-known, wts
opposodtothe matoh, end even tht
Crown Prince William, who hat all
tho German dislike to the meddling of
women in politics, is inclined to look
upon his mother with disfavor; tnd
what little influence the mty now
possess in affairs of state will end it
iter husband's death. It it no stmt
that tbe queen's morbid fear that German physicians were conspiring with
Bismarck to put her son-in-
law nut ot the way wm ont
teason why the crown prince wtt Induced to withdrew to San Remo, and
only the most wttehful can hit prevented her from publicly expressing
her opinion to thtt effect. Many profess to believe that the Queen't tenancy of Villa Palmiere, near Florence,
will bo uf no ordinary duration. It ia
said by these persons that she will remain indefinitely with her daughter,
and that tht prinoe of Walt*] will hi
declared regent; ud it it furthw laid
thit wtt the inhject nutter of t parting conversation in Berlin between
Albert Edward and his brother-in-law,
whose excitement led him to disregard
the orders of his physloitnt, tnd who
spoke freely even to exhaustion (mk

•;■!* *«L* /flljc'r School Amendment Act.
The lion, minister of education
has presented to the legislature a
bill to amend the act relating to
public schools. The 1 Oth section of
this bill, which is the only ono of
interest to tho public, provides that
"the expenses connected with operating the schools in the cities of
Victoria,; -Westminster, Vancouver,
and Nanaimo, and one-third the
salaries of the teachers employed in
the public schools of the above-
named cities, shall be borne and paid
by the municipal corporations of
the said cities respectively." We
are afraid this elauso will not be received with favor by the cities which
are to be affected by it. We havo
held that the cost of maintaining
public schools in this province had
become so burdensome that the time
is not far off when it would be
necessary to place a part of the expense on the municipalities where
the public schools existed; but when
such a change waa made we supposed it would apply to all municipalities alike, or to all school districts whether within the limits of
a municipality or not. It does not
seem equitable to select four municipalities and declare that they shall
bear a portion of the expense of
maintaining their public schools,
while the schools of the other municipalities are to be maintained
wholly by the government. The
result of this arrangement in thnt
while "Victoria, Westminster, Vancouver, and Nanaimo pay nearly
one-half of the expenses connected
with their respective schools, they
will be forced also to contribute
their share towards the maintenance
of all other schools in the province.
Now, although the revenues of the
four cities named are larger than
the revenues of any of the rural
municipalities, yet the cost of keeping up a city government is proportionately great. Beyond the maintenance of our schools and an annual appropriation to the fire company, the government does not directly contribute anything towards
lightening the burden of city taxation. With the rural municipalities
it is different, for each of them receives an annual grant of $1000 or
more to aid in road-making. We
think the proposed amendment
ought not to discriminate between
municipalities; and if the government is of opinion that the rural
municipalities are not yet able to
bear the additional expeme, the law
should be allowed to stand as it ia
until all can be brought under its
operations. 	
On St Patrick's Bay the Irishmen of New York requested permission to hoist the green flag of Ireland over the city hall, and asked
Mayor Hewitt to review their procession. The Mayor declined to
grant either of these requests. The
American flag was good enough for
him, and he wat of opinion that it
ought to be good enough for anobody
in the oountry. Ht declined to review the procession because he was
engaged with more important work
ana did not consider the occasion
demanded his presence. " It is not
a legal holiday," said tlie mayor in
reply to the request, "and you ask
me to leave my work to review your
parade; and you speak first of the
vote cast by the Irish and by your
society, Now I may be a candidate
for mayor next fall, or for president,
and I may want all the votes I can
get Everyone knows that the Irish
vote is strong enough to elect any
candidate in this city for which it is
cast; but for the purpose of getting
thit vote I shall not get down to the
love) of consenting tp review any
parade, be it Irish, or Dutch, or any
other nationality. I shall review
no parades except those which I am
required as mayor to review." The
action of the mayor has caused
quite a sensation. The mayors
of New York have for years
manifetted a great deal more
nnxitty to conciliate the Irish
vote than to discharge their official
duties with becoming dignity. All
honor to the man who has the courage and manliness to do his duty in
the face of great temptations.
It is to bt hoped the reported arrangement between the federal government and the 0. P. R., by which
the Veto policy will be abandoned
all along the line, may be carried
out, Then it much doubt respect
ing the conditions of the arrangement, bnt -we should heartily approve of a considerable sum going
out of the public treasury In order
to secure ao important a concession.
It hii been very dearly domonstrnt
ed that the enforcement of the disallowance policy in Manitoba and
Britith Columbia wat contrary to
the tpirit of the constitution, and
that Uie syndicate charter did not
bind tha federal government to pursue luch a policy. - There seems to
be aome difference of opinion as to
tha actual benefits that may be expected from thit change. It is a
matter of dispute between tho railway company tnd the people of
Manitoba whether any great saving
of rttet can be affected by free railway competition. One thing is
beyond question, however, and that
is tb* fat that ao long at the monopoly clause remaini it will have a
tendency to keep immigrants out
of tha country, and in many other
wayt nttrd iti development. If the
monopoly it broken now we may
look for a boom in Manitoba and

Hon Women Begin to llrlnk.
Mr. L. M. Hall, a prison superintendent of Slrci'bounie, Mass., has written
a short artielo to the Church Uniun ot
New Ytrk, on " How womon begin lo
drink." Out of an examination of two
hundred and four inebriate women, he
says, that have como under Iris notice,
one hundred und twenty-eight began
their drinking by the use of beer,
thirty-seven by drinking whiskey (ns
punch at first usually), twenty began
with wino, eight with gin, and elovon
oould uot remember what beverage
was first used. Of these two hundred
and four inebriate women it may be o
interest to note that one hundred and
thirty-two were enmmittod to prison
for drunkenness, fifty-six for offences
against chastity and public order, and
sisteen for crimes against property.
Many of these could not tell how many
sentences they had received, showing
how useless the law is to punish these
floor creatures while temptations are
eft in their way. Mr. Hall also collected some information as to tho effect upon the children of inebriate parents. Of one hundred and eleven inebriate mothers, thirty-three of whom
had inebriate husbands, four hundred
and eight children were born. Of these
two hundred and twenty-seven perished in infancy and early childhood.
In mnny cases the deatliB of these
children Were indirectly due to the
carelessness and neglect of their inebriate patents. In connection with this
we may add the undeniable fact that in
ninety-nine cases out of a hundred, it
is impossible to reform drunken
women. Men you oan reform; but a
woman, steeped in vice and drunkon-
ness, it is almost impossible to reform,
It is horrible to know that female
drunkenness is increasing rapidly, and
we know of nothing that will stem the
evil, oxcept some extreme measure,
and tbe sooner it is applied and the
evil crashed nut, the better. To think
that at one time there were iu separate cells ih one of our English prisons,
for being drunk und disorderly, a
grandmother, a mother, and a
daughter, the latter with a baly at
the breast, is enough to make
everyone pause and think how best we
csn overcome the terrible evil. In
England and Wales, in 1884, there
were 5,188 males imprisoned for
drunkenness against 0,451 females.
The men bave varied only from 8.2 to
10.1 per cent, but the women begin
at 27.3 per cent, and steadily increase
up to 33.2 per cent, in seven years.
It is useless for persoiiB to uxcubo the
matter on the ground that it does not
concern them personally. We believe
it is a matter that concerns all uf ns,
especially the future generation. Our
mothers, wives, dauithtors and sisters,
are in danger of tho scourge, and who
can say how scon even one of ourselves mny becomo one of its victims.
From the experience of many, no person is safe from tho Bin of drunkenness. We have personally met with
men who for a number of years had
been active workers in our temperance
arrciotitir, and some uf whom have
since fallen victims to intemperance;
and, indeed, some have died frum its
effects.

Boiler Without  llrlnk.
Lieut. Groeloy—uf unfortunate Arctic notoriety—has an article in the
August number of The Foril. upon
the use of "alcohol in high latitudes"
as a practice to be deprecated, the
regular uso of spirits, even in moderation, under conditions of great physical hardship, continued and exhausting labor, and exposure to great cold,
being highly objectionable. Lieut.
Greeley thinks that the experience of
Arctic explorers should have the effect
of correcting, among any class of laboring men, the. mistaken idea that their
capacity for work is increasod, or that
their powers of endurance of exposure
and cold are enhanced by tho use of
alcohol. The English navy never
drinks white working, and the Esquimaux, without alcohol, endure unharmed the severest tomperatures
known to man.
Tke Drunkard la a Bobber.
Mr. Powderlyrecentlvsnid: "Why
do I so bitterly arraign the poor drunkard I For the reason thst he is a
drunkard, ahd because he has made
himself poor through his love of drink.
Did I, or any uther man, rob him of
the money ho squandered in drink, did
I make him poor, the vilest names thut
tongue can frame would he apply to
me. Must 1 stand idly by and remain silent while be robs himself ?
Did ho only rob himself it would not
mako so much difference. Ho robs
parents, wife and children. He robs
his aged father and mother through
love of drink. He gives for rum what
should go for their support, When
they murmur he turns them from the
door, and points his contaminated,
drunken finger towards the poorhouso.
He neit turns towards his wife and
robs her of what should bo devotod to
the keeping of her house in comfort
and plenty. Ho robs her of her wedding ring snd pawns it for drink. He
turns his daughter from his door in a
fit of drunken anger snd drives her to
ths houso of prostitution, and then
accepts from hor hand the proceeds of
her shsme. - 1 do not arraign the man
who drinks because he is poor, but
because through being a slave to drink
be hss mado himself and family poor.
I do not hnto the man who drinks,
for 1 have carried drunken men to their
homes on my back rather than allow
them to remain exposed to inclement
weather. I do not hate the drunkard
—he Is what drink hat affected ; and
while I do not hate the effect I abhor
and loathe tha cause."

hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
tbe good effect-) it produced, It not

so stimulated its growth, that I have

Beasalns ol a Volcano.
The recent discovery of the remains ol
la volcano near Mount Lamentation, the
[highest peak in the chain of Meriden
I bills, hsa eicited the keenest interest in
IscientiSc circlea.  It has furnished a new
key to the geological history of the Connecticut valley. The discovery was made
by Prof. N. 8. Davis, ol Harvard University.   He has been engaged in making an
enhaustive study of the trap-racks of this
state, and he made his happy discovery
of volcanio ruins while searching lor an
entirely different class of geological phe-
'nomona. ■
' Mount' lamentation haa been visited
by large numbers ef people during the
past few weeks. The various sclentidc
associations of tho state: and several
geologists of national repute, have care-
ully eiamined the interesting curiosity.
iNo volcanio cone or crater is mill visible,
but the phenomena of the place clearly
Indicate that in the Iriiissie ago violent
explosure eruptions of a regular volcuulo
type were frequent., Geologists have
long known that the trap-rock of the
Connecticut valley crime .tipin a molten
couiiitiou and afterwards solidified. Thia
molten mass sometimes solidified in fissures in the earth and sometimes 'overflowed the surface like lava streams, and
was eutae piently covered up by strata of
aanrletono.
Prof. Davis haa discovered what Is
clinically known as Ihe ash-bed. It is
a deposit formed when molten lava ia
thrown high into the air by violent explosions, and comes down in a confusod
inriss, cosrso and fine. In the trlassio
period when these eruptions occurred
there must have hern regular cones and
craters of the usual type, but these have
rail heen elln-od. It is very probable that
other ash-hods may exist In the range ol
Meridan hills. Tho geological history ol
this region haa always a.lonled a rich
field ler scientific rtrn.nreh, and the recent volcanic discovery baa given a great
■eelentlHc boom to it, —■ _

Aaether Correction.
Wo have boen requested to contradict an item in the Vancouver News of
this morning, which states that the
choir of Ht. Andrews church, in this
eity, has arranged for performances in
the opera house to raise money for the
purchase of a pipe organ for the proposed new church. There is not mi
atom of truth in it.
Accident.
At the rehearsal of "The Seven
Clerks " last night, Mr. I. B. Fisher
met with an accident which dislocated
the left shoulder. Br. DeWolf Smith,
was immediately sent for und and restored the shoulder to its proper place.
Tho accident was an extreme!} painful
one, but, we are glad to say, Mr. Fisher will be thoroughly recovered in a
day or two.

For the Franer.
Messrs. J. If. Todd & 8011 arc
building 11 new steamer at Colvin's
shipyard, Victoria, for use in connection with the Richmond cannery on
the north arm of tlio Fraser. Her
length will be 55 feet over all; 12 feet
beam ahd depth of hold' 5 feet. The
engine and boiler aro being built by
the Doty Engine Co., Toronto, and
will be very powerful for a steamer of
its size.
Another Cannery.
We learn that Messrs. J. H. Todd &
Son, of Victoria, have completed the
purchase, from Mr. E. Girard, of Bve
acres of land just below and adjoining
tho ivharf at Lutu Landing, south arm
of the Fraser. The land has been
chased by tho Messrs. Todd for the
purpose of erecting on it a large and
first-olass salmon cannery, whioh will
be provided with the most approved
machinery throughout to make it second to none ou the Fraser River iu all
its appointments. In consequence ot
the increasing demand for their
"Horseshoe" brand of canned salmon,
these gentlemen ure unable to fill all
orders at their present cannery, the
Richmond, on the North Arm, and are
iu consequence prompted to the erection of this new cannery on the South
arm. Such industries are of v.*wt importance to Wostminster and we
heartily wish this enterprising firm
every success, and at tho same time
congratulate them on the high favor
their canned salmon is held tn by consumers and the trade generally.
Provincial l.t-Klftluiiirr.
Yesterday tho Granville squatters'
committee presented its report. Tho
report states thai the following persons, having made substantial improvements on tne lota claimed by them, are
entitled to possession: T. J. Hayden,
Jas. Orr, C. C. Rulston, John Angus,
W. H. Jorth, J. S. Onderkirk, A. W.
Sullivan, John Jscklin, A. K. McCartney, A. H. By ram, J. B. Henderson,
William Masheter, A. McCrimmon,
Oeorge Preston, J. H. Gillespie, Alfred King, Juhu McGregor und C. A.
Caldwell. Among the burnt jide applicants are J. A. Webster, H. V. Edmonds, and Jas. Orr. On the second
reading of Hon. Mr. Davie's wholesale
license bill, the objection was raised
that it practically left the granting of
licenses in the hands of the superintendent of polioe. Tbe debate on the.
Chinese exclusion clause of the coat*
mining bill was resumed. Hon. Mr.
Dunsmuir said that unless cheap labor
could be obtained in the mines, the
work could not be earned on, as they
had to compete with other mines. He
was paying higher wages now than he
paid boforo the opening of the C. P. R.
Mr. Bole believed the clause unconstitutional and could not support it. Mr.
Humphreys maintained that, inui-i-uh
as we excluded women and children
from tho mines, we could exclude Chinese also. Debate adjourned till Monday.

(Correspondence of tho Colombian.)
The weather for tho past few days
has been excellent. The roads and
farms are fait drying up and giving the
farmers a chtuico to prncoed with their
spring work. Most of them have more
or less ploughing done. Mr. D. McKenzie sowed wheat on the 7th of
March. It sounds rather previous,
but is showing up in good shape and
to all appearance, will do well. Mrs.
Jno. Stewart, who has for some time
been very sick, is almost well and able
to bo around again. Mr. J. McLean's
brother paid him a visit the other dny.
He came from the ' east and is well
pleased with British Columbia, He
has not yet determined what he will
do, but it is his intentions to remain
in the province. Our worthy mer-
ehant, Mr. Huck, has a lanre stock of
goods on hand which he is selling
cheap, lt is reported that Mr. Richardson is about to move t» Vancouver.
Elgin has almost become a place of the

A few repairs wore put on the Hall's
Prairie road, which will in nil probability help it out considerably. The
election for a new councillor in Mr.
Watson's place, of Halls Prairie, is to

Mr. Wilton floating around. Miss
Jennie Jennings is visiting friends in
the eity. Mr. J. Parks made the sale
of a yoko of cattle the other day, for
$225. It ia understood there is to bo

THE INSPECTION.
A   Good   Tarnontx'Thc   Westminster
Corps Maintain Their Distinction of
" Hecond lo None.*'
Befor 1 o'clock the men of both corps
could be seen wending their way from
different directions towards tho drill
shod, and by half-past ono the muster
waa complete, only a few mon being
absent. Belts wero nicely pipe-clayed
or blackened und buttons and buckles
shone like gold. Tho men had gone to
unusual pains to make themselves neat
and soldierlike, and they succeeded
very woll in their efforts. Whon the
rolls had boon called, tlie rifles, under
'Capt. Scoullar nnd Lieut. Hickman,
showed a muster of U9 non-oommissioned officers and men, and tho but-
tery, under Lieut. McNaughten and
Lieut. Mowat, 34 uuii-coinmissioned
oflicers and mon. After a short preliminary drill, tho parade marched up
to tho cricket grounds and awaited the
arrival of the inspector, with ranks
opened. Tho Princess Louise was detained in reaching Vancouver, nnd in
consequonco the inspecting officer,
Major P«ters, did uot arrive in this
city till 2 o'clock, when he lunched and
proceeded to the parade grounds.
On tho cricket grounds were assembled several hundred people, among
whom were all the youth and beauty of
Westminster, who were present to see
how their brothers and sweethearts
distinguished themselves. It was after
3 o'clock when Major Peters and Capt.
Jones, accompanied by Capt. Peele,
arrived. On reaching tho flag, Major
Peters was received with a general
salute, the men presenting arms and
tho oflicers recovering swords. The
Major, accompanied by Capt..Scoullar,
then passed down thu ranks aud minutely inspected' tha men's accoutrements and general makeup. The companies were then wheeled into column
und the order for tho. "March PaBt"
given. Both companies passed tho
saluting point almost perfect inline,
length of space and carriage, and
Major Peters expressed himself highly
pleased with the manner in which the
movement was performed. Banks
were changed, and the corps inarched
past in quarter column, after
which they were wheeled into
line, tho ranks opened, und the parade
advanced in review order, a general
salute given, and the ranks closed.
The artillery were then ordered to the
butts to commence tho gun prrctice.
Lieut, Rickman put the rifles through
the manual and firing exercise, which
was performed in a highly satisfactory
manner. The company was then
marched to the drill shed and dismissed. As we go to press tho artillery had not finished the gun practice.

San Francisco, Mar. 22.—The
American Sugar Refinery Co. has
chartered the ship Arabia to load a
cargo of raw sugar to New York at the
rate of $4 a short- ton. It ia thought
the refinery in joining the New York
trust has found a market for the Bur-
plus this year, which iB estimated at
00,000 tons. Tho owners of American
vessels are anxious to carry sugar at
that rate to New Vork, as there is a
splendid chance to get u charter back.
At the presont rato a vessel will get
$12,000 for carrying a cargo to New
York.

About 1500 people were in the procession, which was composed of several
companies of Chinese societies in addition to the usual following of hired
mourners and intimate friends' of the
deceased.
TUB FISHERIES TREATY.
Washington, Murch 22.—The president sent a brief message to the senate
to-day in reply to a resolution introduced by Senator Frye on the* 16th
instant, requesting the president to
transmit to the senate copies of the
minutes and protocols of the meeting
of tbe commissioners who negotiated
the fiisheries treaty with Great Britain.
He enclosed a copy of a letter received
from the secretary of state on tho subject, und said he hoped the answer
contained therein was a satisfactory
answer to the resolution. The president requested that his message and
letter from the secretary be made
public, but the senate, after a perusal
of it, came to the conclusion that it
was not a publio document, and would
so consider it, and placed an injunction
of secrecy upon the whole of it.
EARNINGS WERE VERY SLIM.
Chicago, Maroh 22.—Tho reports
of the Southweastern railway association made public to-day show that for
the lirst week in March the Chicago,

tied up during ths first week of the
strike. Statistics for the subsequent
weeks are not submitted.

It is a remarkable fact that Dr.
Thomas' Kclectric Oil is us good for internal as external use. For disease of
the lungs and throat, and for rheumatism,
neuralgia, crick in the back, wounds and
sores, it is the beat known remedy and
much trouble is saved by having it always on hand. Jacob Loocknian, lluffitlo,
says he has been using it for rheumatism.
He had such a lame back thai he could
do nothing; but one bottle entirely
cured him.
