PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
The honso mob on Thursday,
when a discussion of tho speech
from the throne wus begun by Mr.
Wilson, who referred to the several
mutters continued therein. Speaking of the railway ho said we might
expect to reap greater benefits from
it when the extortionate charges
had heen modified. The whole
province was to bu congratulated
on the arrangement which secured
the completion of the graving dock
without cost to it. Ho regarded
mining us the most important industry of tho province.
Mr. Theo. Davie seconded the
reply to tho address and snid that,
if it were true thut tho revenue
had considerably exceeded tho expenditure, the surplus should not be
appropriated with a niggardly hand.
After referring to general prosperity of the country, and the signs of
distress, especially among the Chinese, lie replied to the cry raised hy
the opposition thnt large portions of
the province had heen given away.
The lands, ho said, were there yet,
and by putting them into the hands
of certain companies the liouso had
taken the best means of securing
their settlement and development.
The lands granted to the island
railway had been going begging for
14 years, and in giving them away
the present government hnd only
done what its predecessors had been
vainly trying to do. With regard
to tho dry dock, it wns simply giving away a liability. The house
would uot permit the Kootenay Oo.
to retain 40,000 ncres of thc best
Innd aud escape the payment of
taxos ou tho remainder. Referring
lo tlio Con! Harbor extension, he
thought the further the railway extended the botter it would be for
the country. The Chinese evil was
pressing upon our attention, nnd
the proposal to get rid of these
peoplo by exportation was not so
chimerical as some people imagined.
Tt would open the labor field to the
whites, uud if their passages were
pnid they would get no return certificates. Last August 1,300 Ohinese had voluntarily loft, and lie
wiib suro others would bo glad to
follow. He said it had become
necessary to have a centralized
court house for Victoria, und he
hoped the govornment would provide for its construction.
Aftor some brief remarks by Mr.
Beaven, who, it is gratifying to
learn, has so far recovered from his
ailments ns to resume his place as
lender of the opposition, Hon. Mr.
Smithe explained tho necessity for
legislation allectiug water rights in
the interior so its to protect the
farmers. With reference to tbe
revenue, he dispelled the notion that
the government proposed to limit
the expenditure for tho purpose of
laying up a surplus. It was believed that the wants of tho province were suoh ns to require large
expenditures, nnd the polioy thoy
had been pursuing was to meet theso
requirements as far as the revenue
would permit, Tho government, he
said, had beeu charged with being
responsible for the destitution now
prevailing iu some places because it
had used evory means to attraet
settlers. Tf these means hnd not
been adopted, tho government would
have beon neglecting its duty,
Thero wore always settlors who
would be dissatisfied, no matter
what happened; but there were also
Bottlers who found tho country ns
good as it Imd been represented, and
had met with gratifying success.
The government congratulated itself
upon the success of its immigration
policy, and could point with satisfaction to tho large increase in the
number of settlers throughout the
firovince, Tlie hon. gentleman ox*
libited a colored map showing that
since the passing of tlio settlement
bill more settlers had gone into
Cowichan than during tho previous
20 years, and claimed this as a result of railway construction. Roads
and other public works had been
constructed, including new gaols at
New Westminstor and Victoria,
additions to the asylum, costly
bridges, etc. They had doubled
the revenue, and by the practice of
economy in the departments they
had been able to spend large sums
iu publio improvements.
Mr. Galbraith dissented from the
\iews expressed by Mr, Davie on
tho Ohinese question, and suggested
that thuy should bu debarred from
taking, up mining claims to the exclusion of the whites, lio blamed
tho government for not sooner settling the dispute ahout the ownership of minerals iu railway hinds,
and expressed it hope that in the
consolidation of the statutes n wiser
course would lie pursued than hnd
been done in tho former consolidation, which was worthless,
Hon. Mr. Davio said the government had already been iu correspondence with tho Dominion authorities respecting the precious uiotals
iu tho railway lands, but it had uot
yet heen possible to reach a settle-
British Columbian.
VOLUME 29
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. 0., WEDNESDAY, FEBRUARY 3, 1886.
NUMBER 10
ment of the matter. This government had proposed that in the mean
time, pending a final settlement, the
mines be under provincial regulation. To this the Dominion had
consented, but under such conditions
ns could uot ho accepted by the
province.
Mr, Orr said the increase in population and wealth was temporary,
aud had been caused by railway expenditures. During the work of
construction Mr. Onderdonk had
discriminated, against the produce*
in this country in declining to take
freight at various points on the Eraser river, compelling all freight to
go to Port Hammond by steamers.
Under the new management the 0.
P. R. would doubtless enable farmers to bring their produce to market
cheaply, so that it would not need
to rot by the ton as. at present. The
railway lands were still locked up,
and would probably remain so unless the provincial government took
notion to have them thrown open.
Provincial surveys were ignored by
the surveyors sent out by the Dominion governmont, and there was
a danger that the great expenditures
made by the province in surveying
lunds would be entirely lost
Hon. Mr. Smithe said this was a
mistake—the Dominion government
intended to confirm the provincial
surveys as far as settlers were con
cerned. They had procured copies
of surveys-and records of provincial
settlers, and it was the object of the
Dominion government tnkt provincial surveys should be confirmed.
Mr. Orr said it was tbe object of
the Dominion government to re-
survey lunds outside of lands sold,
nnd ignore provincial lines. The
Ohinese question, he said, was more
serious than people generally supposed. The richness of the gold
mines had been greatly exaggerated
by the newspapers, and it wns ito be
feared there would be more destitute
people at the end of the season. He
had been over the mining region
and knew that the alluvial deposits
were confined to very limited areas,
but he believed that the Similka-
meen would become one of the richest quartz-bearing centres on thc
continent. He complained that
Americans had obtained the best
timber limits in the province, and
locked them up. Provision should
be made that would force persons
holding such lands to undertake the
manufacture of the timber. All
persons except British subjects
should he deprived of the privilege
of taking up mining claims. That
would exclude the Ohinese. In the
U. S. a British subject could not
hold a foot of mining land, uud the
same rule should apply here. If
the governmont were to introduce
such a measure it would prevent
:uiy further influx of Ohinese, and
clean them out of the mining regions.   	
The Opium seizure.
The ateamahip Idnho ii owned hy
the firm of Gondall, Perkins & Co.,
and the senior member nf tho firm, in
discussing the recent opium seizure,
said to u S. F. Gall report or:—
"Our stem ner," said ho, "makes
periodical trips between Alaska nnd
Portland, stopping at Port Townsend
both wnys for freight nnd passengers.
We were disturbed over the discovery
of a small lot of opium on board the
steamer some time ngo, and did all In
our power to discover tho guilty pur-
ties, that wo might turn them over to
the govemment. It ia an open secret
that smuggling noes on, but it is done
very quietly. We have discharged
some of our employees for complicity
in smuggling schemes. We had a case
to-day of a purser whom wo had to pay
off and discharge on this account. But
wo hare alwaya had faith in Captain
Carroll's Integrity, and will continue
to until wo got more authentic and
definite advices. At Kaasun Bay,
where this seisnre is alleged to have
taken plnco, there is a cannery where
aalmon is put nn. This was owned by
a man, bs I understood the story told
me by Capt. Carroll, who owed the
captain some money, and in payment
of the claim the mnn turned uver tha
cannery to the captain. Tho cannery,
I believe, was a poor investment and
the captain has been trying to sell It.
Our company of courae will make a
strict investigation into this matter,
and will du all in its powor to assist
tho govemment in bringing all oOeud-
ora to justice. If any officer in our
servico is guilty of smuggling we hare
no use for him. I oan say nothing
further in the matter until inure definite information has boen received."'
Turkey and Greece.
Nkw Youk, Jan. 20.—Tho Herald's
Constantinople special correspondent
says: I have juat received information
from suoh high sources aa lead me to
beliovo thnt war botween Greece and
Turkoy ia nearly certain. The only
chance for maintenance of pence would
bu tho cecoBHion of Znnilln by Turkey,
ns claimed by Greece, nccording to the
treaty of Berlin, or occupation of
Piraeus by the powers, as it was during tho Crimean wnr. Tho Oreok
government haa had toohoose between
striking a blow for establishing Hellenic supremacy In Macedonia or facing
dynastic troubles at home. The
Greek political leaders consider that
the latter would be most disastrous.
I have reason to know thnt tho Turkish govornmont fully expects hostile
demonstrations on the part of Greece
to commonco within tho next three
weeks, and evory effort ia being consequently made here for completion
of naval preparations; also for a system of torpedo defense in the Dar*
danellea, Tlie first blow would prubably bo atruok at the inland of Crete.
Greece is about to call out two more
clnuos of reserves.

I Wednesdny Horning, Feb. :i. 1H80.
I Gladstone has formed his cabinet,
lit the length of its existence is a
latter of considerable speculation.
is worthy of note thnt tlie Ptir-
fcllitfis have declared their inten-
Jon of remaining in opposition for
lie present. They nre very much
i the position of tho Irishman who,
Ihen nsked what his politics were,
Ipliod, --I'm agin' tho govornmont,
liy how." The Pnrnollites undoubt-
llly hold the balance of power in
lm house as it now stands, and mips nn arrangement is made by the
ltlier parties to make common cause
Lainst a common dntiger, the house
till have to yield to the Irish de-
lands or go again to thc eleetors.
Scrub Journalism,
"The opening day  wns a black
llonday.    A weak and worthless
Tiinistry felt their days numbered,
Ind opportunities for plunder pnss-
lig awny.   The lieutenant-governor,
poking almost as magnificent as the
lead le of St. Martin -In-Grand, read
Die speech iu a dreary monotone,
luggestive of tho elocutionary pow-
lis possessed by tliat gorgeous dig*
litttry.    Strange that the common
Irt of reading is, like common hon-
■sty, a scarce commodity."   These
Ire   tlie   opening   sentences   with
prhich the Victoria Times begins an
.iticlo on the opening of the provincial legislature.    It is not wise
lo curtail the liberties of the press,
Ir to limit the sphere of criticism
Ivhen   undertaken   for the   public
lood.    Legislative assemblies, governments, and public oflicers of nil
Inscriptions are  legitimate objects
pf  criticism   when   their acts are
euch as to call  for public notice,
[but we protest against the liberty
[of the Times when it undertakes to
Jridicule the personal appearance and
Binds fault with the voice of the
■highest   dignitary    iii    the   land.
■Let the organ make use of every
gitimate   means  for the embur-
Irassment and defeat of the goverti-
Iment, if ho thinks the pv.blic inter-
lest so demands, but  it cannot in-
ldulge in such unjustifiable allusions
■to thc lieutenant-governor without
(gaining a reputation for coarseness
which will bo anything but enviable.
I It is possible to conduct a journal
I with dignity even whon it ventures
within the arena of political strife,
I but one  must. never forget that an
I insult ottered to the chief magistrate
I is offered to the poople, and will bo
I resented.
Temperance Legislation.
A few days ago we mentioned
I that a local option law had been
passed unanimously by tho legislature of Washington Territory.   It
was rumored that a fear existed
among the friends of   temperance
that the governor would refuse to
sign the bill, as great pressure wus
being brought to bear upon him in
that direction.   The bill has been
signed, however, and becomes law,
Oregon   is   not   very far   behind
Washington   Territory in temper*
| mice legislation.    At the lost regular session of thc legislature a joint
resolution wns passed to add an additional article to the state constitution, in these words : "The manufacture, sale, or tlie giving away, or
tlio offering to give away, or tho
keeping for sale, of any spirituous,
vinous,  mult, distilled, fermented,
or any intoxicating liquors whatever, is prohibited in tliis state, except for medicinal, scientific, or mechanical purposes." Tliis resolution,
which doos not seem  to leave much
of a loophole through which people
may escape, passed tlie senate on a
vote of 18 to 8, and tho houso by
39 to 19.    No further progress can
ho made until next year when, if
the resolution meats with favorable
consideration, it will  bB submitted
to a direct popular vote.  Jf carried,
Oregon will he added  to the prohibition states.    In Iowa, where prohibition lias  lieen   tried for some
years, it has lieen found impossible
to enforce it in  the cities.   A new
bill is now  beforo the legislature
with a new proposal that is expected to meet the difficulty.    This bill
requires tho governor to make enquiries respecting the enforcement
of tho act in cities, and, if he finds
it is not enforced, he shall proceed
lo remove tho mayor of the city and
such other officers as  lie deems proper and appoint in tlieir places persons who will cause the law to he
onforced.    There   are othor provisions of a most stringent kind in
the bill, and as the house is decidedly temperance, the measure is almost sure to pass.    Ifc will be seen,
therefore, that while British Coium-
hia hM been tor wMiyyiMiiUnd'
ing still as fur as temperance legislation is concerned, there has been
remarkable progress all about her,
and she will soon be regarded as a
century behind tho reBt of the world
upon this most vital question.
Ever Retreating.
One can scarcely peruse a newspaper from any of the states or territories on the Pacific coast without
finding paragraphs relating to the
recession of the Chinese. It is not
long sinco several hundred of them
were turned out of the cigar factories and boot factories of San Franoisco,  nud  their   places taken by
hite men. They have almost entirely disappeared from Tacoma and
Seattle and places nearer the boundary line, The sawmills of the sound
and, indeed, almost every manufacturing establishment, are rapidly
tilling their places with other and
more welcome people. A few days
ago 24 young women from Scotland
were set to work iu the jute mill at
Oakland, where they take the places
of Chinese. For this express purpose they were brought to the country, and it is the intention of the
mill proprietors to substitute white
labor for that of tho Chinese entirely
aud speedily. From Sacramento it
is reported that tho Chinese are
leaving the city in vast numbers
because of the enforcement ngainst
them of the cubic air regulation,
and because they are being boycotted by the whites. While this
movement of Chinese expulsion is
assuming such large proportions in
the adjoining territory, there seems
to be really uo systematic effort on
foot looking to the mitigation of the
ovil in this province. Thero are a
number of works in contemplation
in the immediate vicinity of this
ity, and it is lo bo feared the Ohinese will manage to secure a great
part of the wages accruing from
these works, while white men will
be left without employment. At
Nanaimo it is reported that there
is every prospect that several of the
white miners will he forced out of
work on account of dullness in the
coal trade; but if tlie Chinese miners or helpers were all discharged it
is quite probable tliere would bo
work enough left for all the whites.
During the past few days the Chinese question has been freely discussed in the provincial house, and
the opinions of members were almost unanimous in favor of some
steps being taken to mitigate the
evil. But this sort of talk is cheap,
and there seems to be nothing practical coming out of it Let thc
members of the legislature address
themselves honestly and earnestly
to the Chinese evil, and if they
accomplish nothing more this session
than the production of a sehome
that will rid us of theso pests, it
will be one of the most profitable
sessions ever held in this provinco.
It is announced that for a limited
time there will he unusually choap
fares from this coast to China. It
is a question worth most serious
consideration whether the government would uot be acting for the
best interests of the country if it
arranged to send at least five or six
thousand of these people back to
their native rice fields at public
expense.
Sectional Jealousies.
A meeting was held the other
day at Cedar Hill, in the district
of Saanich, to discuss public affairs.
The principal speaker was Mr. John,
who represents South Saanich in
the legislature, nud one of his chief
complaints ngainst the government
wus its decision to expend the dry-
dock refund on the mainland. Mr,
John and some other island members contended that tlieir constituencies should have had a share of
this refund, and because tho government resisted their applications they
kicknd. It is curious to nolo that
the mainland opposition endeavored
to make a point against the government on this very question. Although it was announced by authority that tho dry-dock refund would
be given to the mainland, as thc
benefits of the 8750,000 railway
grant fiom the federal government
went to the island, there wero many
persons who declared thut those
who put faith in the announcement
would be deceived, and that it would
be found that the island would get
a share of the dock money In
view of this prospective injustice,
the peoplo were osked to vote
against the government. Hut Mr.
John had a grievance which touches
more especially the peoplo of this
district He complained that the
Hon. John Kobson, who was minister of finance hs well as senior representative cf this district, made
use of his position to got for the
district a larger appropriation than
(in his opinion) it wns entitled to
receive. Whilo Mr, John is making these charges, from almost overy
soction of this district are coming
appeal! for radi, bridges, schools,
and other things involving largo expenditures of public money: and
the local opposition press is doing
its best to persuade tho peoplo of
the district that they have not received anything like a fair shuro of
the revenue ! There is no doubt at
all that the roads and bridges in
this district require the outlay of
much larger sums than have been
expended, and there arc instances
where settlors aro laboring under
very great hardships in consequence.
But it must not be forgotten that
tho revenue of this province is limited, nnd not iit all sufficient to enable
tbe govornment to carry out as liberal a scale of expenditure ns it
might wish. It is a fact beyond
dispute, however, that the policy of
this government has been remarkable for its liberality to the agricultural districts. Compared with other governments it has made immense improvements in roads and
bridges and works.of permanent
utility. Iri this district (a district
which, more than any other, has
suffered through governmental neglect) tho appropriations have never
met thc requirements of the settlements, but they have been sufficient
to furnish material for comparisons
of which the administration need
not bo afraid. But because it has
done justice, as far as the resources
of the province would permit, to
this district, Mr, John accuses it of
robbing Saanich and the island generally, and it is by the cultivation
of such sentiments of sectional jealousy, that the opposition hopes to
embarrass thc nd ministration !

Tho report of the Toronto Mail's
■special correspondent in the northwest will be found among our telegrams, and it discloses n state of things
that calls fur the most prompt and
vigorous action. Tho policy of petitioning incapable and unscrupulous
political hacks by appointments in the
northwest is both dangerous and very
costly.
Tho legialuturo met ou Friday nnd
continued tho discussion on tho address. Tho discussion has grown
quite monotonous, nnd has really developed nothing uf importance in addition to what will bo found on the
1st page uf this paper. Mr. Orr, who

Customs.—For the month of January tho customs receipts nt this port
were us follows: Customs, $1,772.19;
other revenues, 934.44; total, 81,800.-
03, This is a decrease of 84,974.5!)
from the sume month.Inst year. Wo
presume tho interruption to navigation
and tho snow blockade on the American railways accounts for the very
largo tailing off.
Police Conn.—On Mondny a mnn
wns up before tbe police court charged
with supplying liquor to IndiaiiB,
but tho cuse was dismissed. Three
Indians, Peter, Capt. Jack nnd John,

Woolen Mills.—We are glad to
learn that the New Westminster
Woolen Manufacturing Oo, (limited)
haa beon organized upon what seems m
promising footing. The capital is to be
810,000. At a meeting held at the
office of Mr. W. Norman Bole on Monday nfternoon -the following gentlemen
were appointed provisional directors:
R. S. Cunningham, J. A. Laidlaw,
Jaa. Punch, Geo, Campbell, and J. G.
Crandle. Among the shareholders of
the company are: Geo. Campbell, 11.
S. Cunningham, W. N. Bole, D. Mo*
Lelund, Jas. Punch, Jno. Wiggins,
Chas. MoDonough, A. R. Dempster,
Jas. Turnbull, Jno. Hendry, J. N.
Draper, and others. We wish tho new
company every possible success.
The Buoys.—Fur several daya the
buoys at the mouth of tho Fraser have
been so muoh out uf place thnt they
afforded n very uncertain guide to
mariners. Telegrams and letters hnve
been passing on the subjeot between
this city, Ottawa and Victoria, but so
far the buoys have not been put into
their proper places. Oapt. Irving
states that unless the matter is attended to he cannot undertake to bring
the C.P.N. Co.'s steamers up the river,
as in case of fug or foul weather tho
risks would be very great. It is not
creditable to the department of marine
that n matter of such importance
ahould be allowed to remain so long
without adjustment. The means
should always be ut hnnd so that a
misplaced buoy might be put into position without tho loss of a day. The
risks of navigation are great enough
under the moat favorable circumstances, and nothing should be omitted
that would tend to reduce them. It is
expected that the suag-hont will be
ready to-day to look after the buoys,
but sho should bu ready always,
The Idaho Seized. — The steamship
Idaho, which has been the source of so
much comment of Into ou nccount of
her alleged connection with tho recent
opium smuggling exposures, nrrived at
Port Townsend yesterday morning^
and wns seized by order of Collector
BcBchor and plnced in chargo of Inspector E. A. Gardner, nfter which she
proceeded to Seattle in command of
Capt. Carroll, where Assistant United
States Prosecuting Attorney Hnuford
prepared a libel, which was tiled
ugainst the steumer nud Iter captain.
The libel contains four counts. The
first three sut out specific charges
against the captain for penalties incurred by reason of breaches of the revenue law to the amount of $175,000;
The fourth count is for unloading
goods from the steamer in the night
time without n permit from the proper
authority, tho penalty for whioh is the
forfeiture of the vessel. J. F. Evans,
late Bpeeinl agent of the treasury department, joined the vessel nt Victoria,
nnd is acting as attorney for Captain
Carrull and the ship. -After tho libel
was filed, Captain Carroll put in a
claim asking for an appraisement of
the -vessel so that bonds might be
given fur her. The court appointed
Captain F. J. Burns, Fred. E. Sander,
and A. M. Oilman as appraisers.
Later on the appraisers made a report
stating that a fair valuation of the
steamer wonld be 830,000, and the
Judgo ordered that tho bond be fixed
at that sum. It is stated thnt tho
bond will be furnished to-day and the
steamer released.— Standard,
A Remarkable Coincidence.
On Saturday we published un extract
from the inaugural address of (he
Mayor of Boston fur the purpose of
commending it as au evidence of reform very much needed and must welcome. Our attention has since beun
called to aome passages iu tho inaugural address of the Mayor of Victoria which arc so strikingly similar to
the Boston mayor's utterances thnt the
coincidence is most remarkable. The
passages are as follows:
The Boston Mayor

no countenance
from me, no matter
what party thoy may
he Identified with
for the time being.
It is hy yielding to
these men on account of tlio fow
voles lhey control
that m u n hi pal governments In all the
large eitlcs of the
country have become n synonym for
waste ami extravagance and corruption, Thin is strong
langiiage.but I know
that every word of It
Is true, [f political
parties mako comhl-
nations with men
whoso morality nnd
integrity aro questionable, such combinations should be
discouraged mid discountenanced hy every good citizen. If
no quarter Is given
to men who hnve no
moral principle behind thein,who connect themselvoE
with lending parlies
merely for plunder,
they will soon be
stamped out, nnd
the business of tho
city will bo conducted, tike any other
lnrge corporation,on
business principles.
Thc Victoria Mayor:

may he strong Inng-
uago, but I feel sure
you know there Is
too much truth lu it.
If unscrupulous men
nre pnt to tho front
they ought to be voted down, nnd If political parties make
combinations with
men whoso numility

Oitv Council. —Counoil met on
Monday night. Members all present:
tho mayor in tho chair. Communications were presented from the eity
solicitors stating that the council had
no authority to eut down trees on
private property, nnd enclosing draft
of by-laws fur gas works and woolen
mills. Several applications were made
for permission to place' building material on streets, A letter was read
from Mr. Abbott suggesting that the
eity debentures for railway bonus be
deposited in the bank subject to the
company's order on completion of the
work, and a reply from the mayor accepting thc suggestion. Also correspondence respecting lands at Sapperton required fur a flag station there.
In consequence of a requisition signed
by 70 citizens, a resolution was passed
withdrawing permission given to the
Chinese to use fireworks in celebrating
their Nuw Yenr. Tenders for coal oil
wero as follows: D. McPhadden,
93.94 per case; Jus. Cunningham
& Co., 83.00. The lowest tender
was accepted. The report of the
fire department wns recoived. The
appointment nfjmlicti magistrate was
laid over. Thu mayor reported that
there were about 80 tu 00 Chinamen
iu destitute uireumstances, but publio
opinion wns opposed to giving assistance. The lamp committee recommended that CO gas lamps he taken
und distributed as follows: Front st.,
7; Riehmd aud Columbia ats., 10;
Dallas, Provost and Carnarvon sts., 0;
Agnus at., 0; Royal Avenue 0. It was
irdurod lhat a box drain liu placed un
McKenzie si., and that the owners of
lots on ltoyal Avutiue must construct
sidewalks at mice, otherwise it would
be done by the ouuncil, The mayor
catted attention In the ferry aud the
need of a furry wharf, and Coun.
Douglas give notice uf inotiuii nikinir
tenders fur a wharf. Bonson gave notice uf motion for aped licit iom for
extension of Provost si.
principles.
The Boston mayor'a
above, is quoted frum Harper's Weekly,
and the speech of Mayor Fell is taken
from the Victoria Timet, If these persons were ordinary men, one might be
inclined to suspect plagiarism, but thuy
are mayors, and must be quite above
anything of the sort. It is, perhaps,
another striking illustration of the fact
that great minda run in a common
groove. It is said that among spiritualists there is sometimes a community
of thought and sentiment which begets
unity of purpose. If Mayor Fell were
a spiritualist, we might almost be
tempted to risk tho assertion that
Mayor O'Brien of Boston is a spiritualist also, and that thc snmo unseen
entity whispered iu the ears of these
gentlemen the noble sentiments which
found utterance in phraseology so exactly alike. But, at present, we nre
not suro that wo ure in possession of a.
true explanation of the remarkable

Dyspepsia.—This prevalent malady is
the parent of most of our bodily ills.
One of the best remedies known for Dyspepsia Is Burdock Blood Bitters, it having cured the worst chronic tonus, nfter
allelichad failed,
sale of liquor. Nnw I did not condemn
the late council as a whole, for two of
them fought for the right, but, of course,
lining in Lite minority, could not stop
tliu wrong tloing, Neither did I cau-
deinn tho reev for his opposition to the
illegal salo of liquor, i condemned liim
for spending the people's tuxes iu employing a deteotivp to hunt up cases of
selling liquor and have them lined when,
in fact, there wns no evidence to sustain
the charge, and he not only wasted the
people's money ns above but he refused
to lot the collet-tor take §25 for a restaurant license after paying for the beat
legal advice iu the province saying it was
a legal thing to do. Aiid he refused to
allow the collector to collect a trade license from another party after the council getting tlio best legal advice iri thc
province advising them to do so; nud
whon the council insisted on it, he vetoed the motion. The last mentioned
license was a wholesale license, and had
it been collected the two yenrs that he
has been reeve there would have boei
$200 more available for roads tban ther
is. S. Cawley,

and regularity of tlio bowel*; ia one of
tho most essentia] Ihwhoi health. Burdock Blood Bittors regulates thtt ho weds
in a natural manner, curing constipation
nnd preventing serious disease.
Port Moody Ice.
Editor Columiuan.—It waa hoped
thnt you hnd returned to something like
the realms of truth in referring to the
Port Moody iee matter, until you published the following last Saturday:
Fair Play mny mnke a note of this;
Lust. Wednesdny the summer Leonora
tried to reach i'ort Moody hut could not
get within two milea of Honson's on account of Ice.
I presume that in your next issue you
will state that your information proved
not to be reliable, as yon did recently
after making a direct false statement
concerning the Louiso reaching here.
Your statement quoted above is just as
false as the one referred to, and whicli
you acknowledged to bo untrue. The
Teaser camo here last Wednesday nnd
did not touch any iee, ns her oflicers will
witness. The Leonora could havo done
thc same, but a piece of iee a half of au
inch thick hnlf of a milo distant is sufficient to scare her out, as witness her
recent refusal to bring Walker's body up
here, when a row boat was successful in
flulling through the ice. Two miles be*
ow Bonson's would bo thc mouth of the
North Ann, where the oldest inhabitant
lias never seen ice. Take nll thc rope
you want Mr. Editor.        Fair Fuv
[We aro sorry that it is necessary to
return again to this subject, hut our correspondent seems to belong to that class
of people who suppose thnt nothing can
occur beyond the sphere of thoir observation, Our authority for tho statement
that the Leonora could not get within 2
miles of Bonson's was Mr. 0, G, Major
and Mr. J. C Hughes, As theso two
gentlemen happened to be on board the
steumer at the time, and "Fair Piny"
was not, we presume their evidence will
be accepted, especially by persons who
know thom. Mv. J, C Armstrong was
also on board, and his testimony aud
that of the oflicers of tho steamer Leonora may bo obtained if necessary. If
"Fair Play" is not satisfied with this,
advise him to select a nom dc plume that
will suit him better,—Ed*]

As the Hall's Prairie and const meri

it certainly looks as if there wero more

Tliere is no secret or patent in the production of "Myrtle Navy" tobacco. It
could be produced by iiny manufacturer,
but no manufacturer could make it pay

Ho could not sell bolow the present price
without a loss even if he could purchase

That is the reason why Messrs. Tuckett

they cnu retain it only by keeping tho

London, ; ,Tnn. 21).—Tho Fortniyhtly
Review publishes a political article which
is generally supposed to reflect the views
of Mr, Joseph Chamberlain on tho presont crisis. The writer expresses great
regret at tho "timidity of the Whigs,"
who seem to be afraid to fnce tho lnnd
Jiuestion. Their opposition, he Buys,
oiled a former attempt to settle this
great issue, and he urges them to reconsider tho wliole subject now. Tiie writer
snys he thinks tliat a few months will reveal dissensions, which lie maintains arc
now dormant, in the nationalist party,
and intimates that a falling off iu American donations to the league treasury will
bring Mr. Parnell to the poiut of conforming tiis demands to what Englishmen
may justly grant. In conclusion the
writer saysi "If England over yields to
tho Irish demand for a native parliament,
sho will havo no guarantee against au
eventual separation of Ireland from Great
Britain." The Queen hns accepted thc
resignation of Lord Salisbury and his
cabinet, and has summoned Mr, Gladstone for consultation. Previous to Mr.
Gladstone being summoned, it wus reported that the Queen hesitated between
the ex-premier nnd Lord Hartington, nud
had ordered the ministers not to surrender their seals of oilieo until Mondny.
Tfie Intest number of Nineteenth Century
contains nu article by Arnold Forster,
which hns created a sensation here. Tho
writer states that Irishmen wore at tho
bottom of the Molly Maguire conspiracy
in Pennsylvania, thut Irishmen plotted
ngainst the ollieials and Chinese in San
fr ranciseo, thnt thc Tammany ting wns
largely supported by Irish-Americans,
and the Huston police were tampered
with by Irish politicians of that city.
The history of the world shows, he says,
thnt the Irish engage in conspiracies
wherever thoy mny lie, and he advises
that tho Knglish government- should, exorcise firmness in its treatment of Ireland, os otherwise the rooonyuest of tlint
country will be necessary.
ATHIWIi, Jnn. 30,-TIih king of Greece
has refused the i-emicst of the Uritish
ministei to cancel the alloged fanciful
a.count published in scmi-ollkial newspapers which stated that the British ministei' in imparting to the Greek government Premier Salisbury's note, in informing Greece ef I5tiglaitd*s attitude, used
language tending to disturb the relations
existing between England and Greece.
The minister denies having made nny
offensive remark*-: on the Occasion* nnd
hns referred the matter to his government nt London. The official journal of
Athens denies that the attitude of tho
Greek cabinet has changed. Lord Salisbury has instructed Admiral Hay, commander uf tho English Mediterranean
squadron, to employ force ngainst thc
Greeks whenever they attack Turkey.
LOS DON, Jan. ;t0. -Ghidstono, who
was summoned by tho Queen to form a
cahiuot, will visit hur majesty at the
royal pnlnco nt Osborne on Monday.
Gen. Ponsonby, private secretary to the
Queen, presented to Mr. Gladstone her
majesty s mandate nt 12:110 o'clock this
morning, nnd Mr. Gladstone hod.a consultation which lasted hnlf an hour. The
ParnellileH fear Mr. Gladstone will be.
compelled to form n compi'omtsb cabinet.
Mr. Gladstone had a Conference this
evening with several prominent Liberals,
It transpired that Gun. Ponsouby called
upon the MarmiiB of Salisbury boforo
viaitiiui Mr. Gladstone, and hus sinco
consulted  with   Lord   Hartington   nnd
others. The Standard learns that Lord
Hartington will be a member of the new
ministry.
Montreal, Jan. ;t0. -Manager Van-
Home denies the report that the Canadian Pacific rond intends to make a demand upon the transcontinental association for admission and a percentage of
not less than SO per ceut. Prime minister Sullivan and Senator Howland, of
Prince Edward Island, are here to consult engineers regarding a proposal to
build a submarine tunnel between the
mainland and island. The distance is
six miles.
Toronto, Jan. 30,—George H.Ham,
special commissioner of the Toronto Mail.
in tho North-west, telegraphs that journal
from Fort Macleod, making serious aud
grave charges against Indian agents and
contractors of systematic plunder and
fraud. Hundreds of thousands of dollars have been plundered by these peoplo from the Dominion. Startling developments will now follow the expose of
Mr. Ham. Whito settlers are charged
with smuggling intoxicating liquors into
the North-west territory and supplying
"lire-water" to the Indians and others at
enormous prolits. Thc whites nre also
charged with carrying on an illicit inter-
ooitrso with Indian girls at from §10 to
§-20 per head nud taking them to the
frontier towns for immoral purposes,
where they aro disposed of at figures
such ns * will realize thoso who carry
them from their homes a handsome profit.
Tho revelations have created a profound
sensation, especially as they arc from an
authentic source and free from political
bias.
Scrofula is known by swelling of the
glands of the neck, abscesses, sores, a
pale countenance, low vitality, and general signs of bad blood. Burdock Blood
Bitters cures the scrofulous condition by
making pnre healthy blood.
SPECIAL DESPATCHES.
London, Jan. 31.*—Tho News believes
Lord Hartington will remain neutral and
will not seek to trammel Gladstone in
his efforts to settle the Irish question.
With the exception of Lord Hartington,
the News says, Gladstone will not find
any serious defection among his former
colleagues. The suggestion that Parnell
be given n place in the cabinet cannot
possibly be acted upon.
London, Feb. 1,0:30 p. m.—Mr. Gladstone has arrived at Osborne and has
received tho personal command of Her
Majesty the Queen to form a cabinet. It
is officially announced this afternoon that
Gladstone kissed the hand of Her Majesty on receiving her command. At the
railway station and along the entire
route he waB greeted with tremendous
cheering from the multitude who had
congregated to witness his departure.
Both houses of parliament met to-day
and adjourned until Thursday, pending
thc formation of a now cabinet.
Dublin, Feb. L—The Freeman's Journal states that it has reason to believe
that Gladstone has agreed with Parnell
to join forces in parliament for the passage of a bill which shall establish a
native parliament in Dublin to deal with
Irish affairs, legislation to be so constituted as to add to tlio present safeguards
for tho integrity of the empire nnd rights
of thc crown.
London, Feb. 1.— Mr. Gladstone has
defined his cabinet, but several of the
gentlemen lie lias named are not pleased
with the position assigned them, and it
is therefore probable that in ml iti cations
will be made delaying publication of thc
official list. The press association gives
the following as the latest forecast of the
new cabinet: Mr. Gladstone, first lord of
treasury and chancellor of the exchequer;
Sir Fnrrcr Herscholl, lord high chancellor; Sir Wm. Vernon Hartcourt, home
socrotary; Earl Granville, lord president
of the council; H, C. H. Childers, secretary of war. The remainder are liablo
to alteration, but they will probably be
as follows: G. 0. Trevetyan, president
of thc board of trade; A. G. Mundctla,
president of the local government board;
Earl Spencer, secretary for foreign affairs;
Earl Uoseherry, secretary for the colonies; Earl Kimherly, secretary for India;
Mr. J. Chamberlain, first lord of the
admiralty; Mr. J, M. Morley, chief sec-
rotary for Ireland. It is understood tho
Qnceu objects to Mr. Morley because ho
is pledged to home rule. Members of tbe
last Gladstone cabinet had a meeting
yesterday afternoon. The Parnellites
intend for tho present to sit with the
opposition in tho house of commons,
San Fra.vci.hoo, Feb. L—The Six
Chinese Companies nre sending circulars
to intorior points stating that they will
assist alt Chinamen to return home who
wish to take advantage of the present
reduction iu fares from nere to China.
AFTER DINNER.
Persons who suffer from Indigestion
cau arrest the progress of that painful
malady by the use of nn after-dinner
pill, so composed that it will give tone
(otho stomach, prevent heartburn, rouse
the liver to lieullliful uct Ion, invigorate
the kidneys, and thus, through the activity
of these organs, promote tho natural
movement of the stomach and bowels.
Ayer's Pills arc so compounded that
their action, though mild, effectually produces thc above results. They also, fn
curing Constipation, remove the causo of
Biliousness, Liver Complaint, Kidney Dis-
citso, Rheumatism, and many other serious
ailments.
AYER'S PILLS
contain uo mineral nor poisonous substance, and do not gripe unless tho
bowels ure Irritated, and even then their
influence Js healing, To continue their
clleet in constipated orHinmie eases, thev
need only he taken in diminishing Instead
of Ineri'iisiiig doses. Fon-f-mneii, and in-
haliitiinis or trutelcra in sparsely settled
countries wliere physicians nre not at
hnnd, lhey are of inestimable value.
Tliere is hardly u sickness thev will not
alleviate, and iu most cases cure, if taken
promptly, To young girls just entering
upon womanhood- and to women whose
poriod of ninternity Ib drawing ton close,
Ayer's Pills, In moderate doses, merely
sufficient to ensure regular action of the
bowels, will be found of
Incalculable Value.

Toronto Exhibition.
THE DOMINION PIANO & ORGAN CO.
Speaking of the great central oxhibi*
bition opened at Toronto on the 10th
Sept,, the Toronto Globe. Bays:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on the
grounds cannot escnpe the attention of
the most casual and careless observer, is
tho pavilion of the Dominion Organ Com-
fumy. This is a separate building but a
ittle distance from tho south cast of the
Main Building. This pavilion must be
about 50 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
iB handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to nll in broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that company, and
that Joseph Ruse, of 08 King-street
West, represents the company. Inside
no pains have been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No oue should visit tlio Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he will find a little paradise
of music. Here ure decorations, handsome pictures of tho Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ruse, and above all, pianos and organs
of the most artistic and unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to the
genius and skill of our Canadian manufacturers. Piauos and organs of evory
stylo and artistic design aro found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of roso-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut, A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces the visitor at tho extreme
end as tie enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every style and design to suit the purchaser. Tlie Company also exhibit with the degreo of
triumph and merit tho fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing tliat at a Grand
National Exhibition held there tho Company bad just carried ofl' the firat prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is coftainty remarkable, though
when the rapid rise of this Company to
publie favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as at first might soem,
Tho Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment ho paid
the Dominion Organ and I'iano Company
at the opening of the Loudon Fair. Iu
bis address from tho platform of tlie
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impe
tua Exhibitions gave to overy industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
oxliibit at tho Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited as an illustration of tho wonderful progress this
country is making, the bucccbs of thc
Dominion Organ and I'iano Company
there. He said that this Company (the
Dominion Organ and I'iano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, tbe very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and acquirements in mimical knowledge, but those judges, who
comprised some of their ablest and best
musicians, had declared further that the
instruments of this company wore superior to any they had evor seen, hoard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from such a source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content,

Klval Railway Hoiiles.
Sax Francisco, Jan. 20.—Interviews union** railroad officials yester-
dny point to a certainty that nothing
definite with regard to the proposed
relations of the transcontinental pool
and the Canadian Pacific will be accomplished at the coming railroad meeting in New York, A great deal of
attention is being paid to the subject,
however, and that matters will be
arranged for pooling the new line within six months there ean hardly be any
doubt. Transcontinental companies
are ofthe opinion that there will be
plenty of time for this after tho road
is opened for through traffic.
In view of all that has been said of
late regarding tho practicability of the
Canadian Pacific routo for transportation between this city ami the Atlantic
seaboard, a computation of comparative distances cannot fnil to prove of
interest. Canadian Pacific agents
claim that their route is the most
direct from tho Pacific coast to the
Atlantic, and havo already promised
shippers uf this city a steamer lino botween the western terminus and San
Francisco. On the other hand, ufficials
of the Southern Pacific Company represent tho Canadian Pacific to be the
must circuitous route fur overland
shipments. A neutral railroad official
furnishes a table of distances in miles
by the various routes from this city to
New York, by which it is shown tlmt
lhe Canadian Pacific is by no means
the longest, and the scheme for running a steamer lino between this city
and Port Muody is not a bad idea after
all. The following figures give the
number of miles in the various routea
between San Francisco and New York:
Vln the I'lilon Pacific 3',W*I
Vhl Atchison, Tn'n-kil A Sutltil l-V  *i,l*vl
Via Northern Pud tie :i,8!l."i
Viu Uiiiiiulinii I'jii-iile  4fV24
Vlu Southern Pacific  4,005
Considcrini! that the Southern Pacific ia now ablo to control 70 pnr cent.
of the traflic to this city out '.f New
York; Philadelphia and Boston, with
2,500 miles of steamship line, it wuuld
appear that tho Canadian Pacific, with
loss than 1,000 miles of ocean route,
will be able to mnke as advantageous
arrangements with New York shippers
as aro now enjoyed by the Southern
Pacific railway.
C. P. R. Prospects.
The San Francisco Chronicle of the
lllth ultt. says: Captain Newton H.
Chittenden, the noted explorer, naturalist and ethnologist, ia in the city,
en routo to London, England, whether
he is sent by the British Columbia
government as its commissioner to attend the great exhibition of Indian
and Colonial products which is to take
place there the coining summer: "My
lutes trip," said he a few days ago to
a Chronicle reporter, "has been over
the Canadian Pacifio Railway, 3,000
miles of road, besides its many
branches, which I have also traversed.
I fuund the ruad as a rule admirably
equipped, its passenger curs and uther
rolling stock being of the best possible
description. The company is very
aggressive, perhaps more so than uny
line ou this or any other continent.
It has already absorbed the must valuable traffic, both passenger and freight,
in the eastern provinces, It has done
so by virtue of superior equipment and
better service generally in all its departments. Of course the wisdom and
ultimate success of such a polioy is self-
evident."
"What do you suppose will be its
effect on the American transcontinental
hues I" (,A very aerioua one for the
railway companies. It will face thom
with a kind of competition which they
never contemplated having to encounter. It will do moro than anything
else iu the world cuuld dc to burst the
chains of monopoly with which, I hear,
tho people of California find themselves
hound. From the way in which it was
built- by successive subsidies from the
Dominion government—it is virtually
national property and therefore cannot
bo manipulated by tho pool managers
tu suit their private ends. It will
make a strong bid fur the bulk of tho
immigration into Oregon and Washing-
tun Territory. A line uf steamers will
bu run in the spring betweon Farwell,
at the second crossing of the Columbia,
duwn thut river for about 200 miles tu
Fort Colville, W.T., and there the immigrants will be landed at their destination without the tedious trip from
here to Victoria and Seattle, or tho
equally tedious, und in sume respects
even more disagreeable trip, overland
to Portland, Or."
■'Do yuu think, then, that the road
will pay?" "After a thorough examination of the region it traverses—extending my examination from 100 to
300 milea north nnd south of tho main
lino—I answer, unhesitatingly, that it
will. Between Winnipeg and Calgary,
a distance of 800 miles, extending an
unbroken stretch uf magnificent wheat
aud gruziug land which is being rapidly
settled up by the hardiest of our homo
and foreign elements, including many
Scandinavians. Then the guld quartz
discovered in tho Big Bend country,
abuut seventy miles north of thc line
from Farwell, aro very encouraging.
Very rich placer 'Jigging! were discovered late in the summer un tho Simil-
kameen, in British Columbia, abuut
300 miles uorthaait of Viotoria and
100 mites south of the road. Somo
000 mon are wintering there.11
"But will uot the rigorous climate
be  a  serious drawback/"   "I think
not, in fact I believe the climate tu be
superior to that of Northern Minnesota
and   Dakota,   being  less expusod to
blizzards.    I  tuok very careful  notes
from tbe old Catholic priests, who had
lived in that country from thirty to
forty years, and they confirmed me,
without  exception   iu   this   opinion.
There are G00 square miles of wheat-
growing country in the Saskatchewan
valey and the Territories of Assiniboine
and Alberta, where the frosts are not
more severe than in the great grain
region   of   Minnesota  and   Dakota.
Another fact I may mention wliich is
not generally known, vit»: that General
Van Horne, the manager of the company intends inviting tenders for build:
iug a railway bridge across the St,
Lawrence   from  Montreal,  with the
ultimate object of building u short line
through to Portlund, Me., or getting
possession   of   ono  uf   the   existing
American lines.   In this way he will
save a distance of about 340 miles and
havo a winter shipping point to supplement Halifax.   I think you will agree
with  me,"  smilingly concluded  the
captain, -'that I wos right in colling it
an 'aggressive' line."

A Word to ltoys.
Boys, you aro made to bo kind, generous, magnanimous. If there is a
boy in school who has a club-foot,
don't let him know you ever saw it.
If there is u boy with ragged clothes,
don't talk about rags in his hearing.
If there is a lame boy, assign him
some part in the game that doesn't require running. If there iB a hungry
one, give him part of your dinner.
If there is a dull one, help him tu get
his lesson. If there is a bright one,
be not envious of him; for if one boy
is proud ot his talents, and another is
envious of them, there uru two great
wrongB, and no more talent than before. If a larger or stronger boy lias
injured you, and is sorry fur it, forgive him. All tho school will show by
their countenancos how much better
it is than to have a great fusB.--

Chinese Religious Keller.
.lolm Russell Young, tho late minister to China, in a published interview
states that Confucian ism is the religion
of the ruling clnsses of China; indued,
it can hardly be called a religion in
any sense understand by Europeans ur
Americans, for it recognizes neither a
God nor a life to conic. Mr. Young
characterizes itnsuphilauthropicatand,
sentimental atheism. Confucianism
is a secular religion embracing a highly
developed ethical systom. The Chinese are said to worship their ancestors,
nut in the sense that we worship God,
but partaking more uf tho Roman
Catholic reverence paid to patron
saints. It is an exaggerated expression of filial affection. Tliu Chinaman
honors learning but he despises the
warrior. Should a change occur, and
a military chief over become as admirable in the eyes of a Chinaman as he
ia in Europe or America, what is tu
prevent tho myriads of Tartars and
Mongols marching from Pekin to Paris?
Mr. Young points out tho fact, that it
is tlio Tartar who has been the great
invader of other nations, as witness
Genghis Khan, Tamerlane, and Attilu.
The Chinaman is brave, docile and intelligent, and were a great leader to
appear, they micht overrun the civilized world by the mere furco of numbers. Happily their contempt fur war
and warriors has so far saved civilization from this peril.

That Hired Girl.
When sho came to work fur the
family on Cong reus -streot the lady of
tho house sat down and told her that
agents, book-peddlers, hat-ruck men,
picture sellers, ash buyers, rag-men,
and all that class of people, must be
met at tho front door and coldly repulsed, aud Sariali said she'd repulse
em if bIio had to break every broomstick in Detroit.
And she did. She threw tho duor
open wide, bluffed right at 'em and
when she got through talking the
cheekiest agent wus only too glad tu
leave. It got so after a while that
peddlers marked that house, aud the
door-boll never rang except for company.
The other day, us the lady of the
house was enjoying a nap, und Sariah
wus wiping off the spoons, the bell
rang. She hastened to tho dour, expecting to Bee a lady, but her eyea
encountered a slim man, dressed in
black and wearing a white neck-tie.
He wus tlie new minister, and ho was
going around tu get acquainted with
the members of his flock, but Sariah
wasn't expected to know this.
"Ah—um—is Mrs.—ah—"
"Git!" exclaimed Sariah, pointing to
the gate.
"Beg pardon, but I'd liko to see—
see——"
"Meander!" she shouted, looking
around for a weapon, "wu don't want
any fluur-siftcrs here."
"You are mistaken," he replied,
smiling blandly, "I called to '
"Don't want anything tu keep moths
away—fly!" Bhe exclaimed, getting red
in the face.
"Is the lady in ?" he inquired, trying
to look over Sariuh's heud.
"Yes thu lady's in, und I'm in, aud
you're out!*' sho snapped, "and now I
don't want to stand here talking to a
fly-trap agent any longer! Come, lift
your boots!"
"I am not au agent," he said, trying
to Binile, "I am the new "
"Yosj I know you—you are the now
man with a' patent flat iron, but we
don't want any, and you'd better g<
before I call the dog!"
"Will yuu givo the lady my card,
and say that I called ?"
"No I won't. We're bored to death
with cards and handbills and circulars.
Come, I can't stand here all day."
"Didn't you know that I was a minister V he asked as he bucked off.
"No, uur I dun't know it now; you
look like tlie man who sold the woman
next door a dollar chromo for eighteen
shillings!"
"But here is niy card."
"I don't care fur cards, I tell yout
If yuu leave that gate opon I'll heave u
fluwor-pnt nt you!"
"I will call again," he said, as ho
went through the gate.
"It won't du you any good!" she
shouted after him; "wu dun't want no
prepared food fur infanta—no piano
music—no stuffed birds! I know the
policeman on this beat, and if yuu como
around here again he'll suon find out
whether you are a confidence man or a
vagrant!"
And she took unusual care to lock
tho door.
Again Gladstone's wonderful power
has been exhibited. He hns just mado
a speech in the house of commons
which is said to have "disconcerted
tho Tories, won over tho Irish, and
pulled the Liberals together." It iB
seldom, indeed, that in all the annals
of mankind there havo been such exhibitions of the potent sorcery of
speech ub those of Gladstone; and the
real power of the man is attested, not
by occasional exhibits of brilliancy,
but by Bteady manifestations of power
during forty years. He is not a meteor of politics, but a great central
sun. Of all men who nave spoken
English in our day, Gladstone is the
greatest single powor.—Portlaml Ore-
