Tenanti, Defence Fund.
Dublin, Mar. 11.—The new tenants
defence fund amounts to £51,000.
Woodshed  May Itesult.
London, March 12.—The Telegraph
points out that congratulations concerning the reported agreement between Sir
Julian Paunceforte and the United
States regarding the Behrlug Sea difficulty are altogether premature. Canadians, it says, will never agree to any
practical monopoly of these waters by
the United States, and it predicts bloodshed will be the result of tbo latter
power endeavors to enforce Its claims.
lloulanger'H Friend.
London, March 12.—Ex-Senator Na-
quotte, lately elected to tbe Chamber of
Deputies after his first election was
declared void, has arrived here from
Paris to meet General Boulanger, who
has returned from St. Heliers, and remains here for the season.
Plgott and Salisbury.
London, March 12.—Mr. Sexton will
not make known the contents of the letter from Salisbury to Pigott marked
private." He holds the document
pending the efforts to fully explain the
relations between the Marquis and the
dead forger.	
The Mild Alligator.
Dublin, March 12.—The Freeman's
Journal commenting on lust night's debate in the House of Commons boars
down heavily on the support of the government by Mr. Chamberlain. It says:
"Joseph played the part of Judas to
perfection, and the mild-like alligator
was deferentially murderous."
Discontented Striken*.
San Francisco, March 12.—A number
of tbe striking moulders are becoming a
little discontented on account of the
delay in affecting a settlement with the
manufacturers, and are preparing to
leave for tbe east in hope of faring
better.      	
A Portal Thief.
San Francisco, March 12.—Post Office
Inspector Legbolt last night arrested
JosephT. Sanderson a warrant charging
him with having stolen postal notes,
registered letters containing money and
other valuable mail matter. Sanders
was post master at Plum Branch, Edges-
field County, South Carolina. He will
be returned to South Carolina at once.
The Military BUI.
Washington, D. C, March 12,—The
House committee on military affairs has
ordered a favorable report on the House
bill for the establishment of a system of
coast defences. It sets aside $4,000,000
for expenditure during the first year.
Favorable action has also been taken
upon the bill to establisd a frontier
reserve.
Wild (las.
Marion, IikL, March 12.—The Killen
gas well west of this city has escaped all
bounds. In digging tbe well a great
flow of water was encountered 300 feet
down which was eased off. An unusual
flow of gas was developed at 900 feet,
the force of which lifted out the casing
and let in the water. This was in a fair
way to be overcome, but yesterday
morning, George Jackson, an old man,
went into the derrick, which was filled
with gas, and struck a match to light bis
pipe. In the explosion which followed
Jackson and the well contractors were
blown about 46 feet, and all were more
or less seriously Injured, and the derricks were destroyed. There is now
issuing from the pipe a volume of fire
and water 100 feet nigh, which defies all
efforts to control it.
The Salmon Canneries Next.
New York, March 12.—The Herald
Pittsburg correspondent says: I hear
an English syndicate is trying to buy up
all the salmon canneries on the banks
of the Columbia River iu Oregon. A
Pittsburger. engaged in the canned goods
business, who has Just returned from
Oregon, said to-day; "J. W. Alderman,
who represents the English syndicate, is
in Astoria trying to negotiate with the
canneries. He has asked for a definite
statement and valuation of the property. The transfer is to include building plant, and real estate. I am informed he has ninety days option on every
cannery on the river, except three, and
I believe the thing is as good as settled."
February Fires. '
New York, March 11.—The fire loss
in the United States and Canada for the
month of February was $7,887,025. The
decrease Is about (400,000 from tbe same
month of 1889.
A Great Loss.
Cincinnati, Ohio, March 11.—Stann,
Mayer & Co.'s wholesale clothing bouse
was gutted by fire last night, causing a
Iobb estimated at (600,000. Partially
insured.     ■
At It In Winnipeg.
Winnipeg, March 11.—There were exciting scenes in the Legislature early
thiB morning In the debate on the School
question. Mr. Harrowey, the member
for Shoal Lake, making a vicious attack
on the Roman Catholics, He said that
he proposed to show the effects of Roman Catholic training on the people of
the province, and to do this began with
the old fights between tbe Hudson's Bay
Company and the North West Fur
Company. He had not gone far when
Mr. Prendergast arose and entered a
passionate protest against Mr. Harrowey
being allowed to make a speech, the
only object of which was to show that
the first bloodshed lu this country had
been caused by French-Canadians. The
Speaker said that Mr. Harrowey would
have to show that his statements had
some bearing on the question at issue,
or he would not be in order. Mr. Harrowey said that he was going to show
how the Roman Catholics had trained
up their adherents iu this Province in
the past. He then went on with his
ancient history, but after citing one or
two feuds between tbe French half-
breeds and the early Bottlers, tbe
Speaker ruled his remarks to be out of
order. Mr. Harrowey then began an attack on Archbishop Tocbe, but was
again squelched by the Speaker. The
debate will be resumed to-night.
, Rescuing the Entombed.
London, Mar. 11.—Tho search for the
victims of the Morsa colliery disaster is
being actively pressed to-day. So far
eight bodies have been recovered. Tbey
are horribly mutilated. The possibility
of the rescue of some entombed men is
offered in the fact that voices have been
heard by the rescuers, though tbe latter
England's Conditions.
London, Mar. 11.—Lord Salisbury In
bis answer to the invitation to tbe Berlin Labor Conference, transmitted by
Prince Bismarck, accepts, but sayB the
British Government cannot enter into
any engagment to restrict the liberty of
workmen to labor as long as thev please,
while willing to facilitate free engag-
inent between employer and employed.
The O'Shea Dlovrce.
London, Mar. 11,—Thero iB now a
strong probability that the divorce suit
of Captain O'Shea against his wife and
Mr. Pamell, will not reach a trial before
fall. Mr. Pamell has asked and obtained further and fuller details of tho times
and places of the alleged acts of adultery. He is entitled to three weeks in
which to file an answer, and will probably ask for un extension of time.
The   Dead  Hangman.
London, March 11.—In investigation
of the affairs of Mar wood, the dead hangman, have disclosed the curious fact
that he received only £25 instead of £50
promised for hanging tho Phwnix Park
murderers. Owing to his grievances
against the Government he was about to
sue for the full amount when he died.
PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
|Prom Our Own Correspondent.}
Tho Labor Conference.
Paris, March 11.—Tbe Cabinet has
decided to send Senators Jules Simon
aud Tolain M. Burdeau, members of the
Chamber of Deputies, and Mr. Under,
inspector of mines, and M. Delhaye, a
mechanic, as representatives of France
to the International Labor Conference
at Berlin. 	
Interesting Introduction.
Paris, March 11.—Oscar T. WilliamB,
tbe United States consul at Havre, was
presented to President Carnot yesterday
by William Reid, United States Minister. The interesting incident of the
visit was the presentation to M. Carnot
by Mr. Williams, of a cane, cut from a
tree shading the tomb of George Washington.     	
The MaCalla Outrage.
New York, March 10.—The World
prints at length tbe statement made by
Fireman Walker, of the United States
Corvette Enterprise, regarding the conduct of Commander McCalla toward
him. Walker, it will be remembered,
is the mail who was cut down by McCalla with a sword. Walker swears
that he was not drunk but that he was
put on watch in the place of a man who
wan drunk and was raising a big row,
when McCalla came on board. When
Walker was lying senseless and bleeding
on tbe deck, McCalla had him doused
repeatedly with salt water. Walker
says he was finally forced to desert the
ship to save his life, When interviewed
just after the first publication, Feb. 28th,
McCalla said the statement about the
cutting down of Walker with his sword
was true. Walker came on board drunk,
ran wild about the decks, and shouted:
"I wiib a rebel and fought two years in
the war, and I haven't got enough lighting yet. I'm not afraid of the biggest
man on board your blasted plug, and I
won't keep quiet; no I won't!" The
man refused to listen to reason and McCalla finally went to him himself,
Walker tried to strike him and McCalla cut him down. Tbe surgeon's record shows that the wound was on the
back of tbe head, an inch and a half
long, aud extending the bone. McCalla
entered a denial of several of tho other
reported incidents and said the story
about his being Lady Playfair's coachman was an absolute lie. He asked
whether bis action in censuring Engineer
Entwistle for using salt instead of fresh
water was not justified. McCalla allowed the reporter to go forward among the
men and they, with one or two exceptions, coincided with tbe printed statements that the voyage had been one iu
which there had been great brutality.
LADNERS   NOTES.
The Delta Town Looking More  Lively
than Ever.—A Keinarkable Sermon.
( From Our Own Correspondent.)
Ladnerb, March 12.—Ploughing and
building are the orders of tbe day at
Ladnors. Business is always lively at
the Landing, but iB uncommonly so this
spring. Several new residences are under construction, and tbe Methodists
are building a fine new church, which
will be a great credit to the denomination and a very desirable acquisition to
our little town.
As a rule wo are not referred to as
samples of professed piety at Lad-
ners, but we do admire pluck and enterprise, and the Methodists get there
every time. Let the good ,wp$? go on,
for still there is room.   >"■    '■ •
A remarkable sermon was delivered
at the town hall last Sunday, subject,
"The Besurection," The ideas advanced by the learned speaker were somewhat startling, to say the least, and the
sermon is causing quite a "read up"
among the old Bible students. It is surprising to find what a knowledge of
Scripture some of tbe old hands have
stored away to be brought to the surface by a brush of this kind. The gentleman contended that there will be no
redirection of the body; that the spiritual resurrection commenced with Christ,
and that tbe world Ib now living in the
judgment day; that there Ib no virtue
in tlie ordinance of water baptism in any
form or shape; that when a person dies
judgment is ended and his fate is sealed. Surely somebody is wrong, who is
it? for we have always heard a very different interpretation of the text. How
often we have listened to our good old
Catholic fathers warning ub of the everlasting fires of hell and tlie pains of purgatory ; yes, and the Protestants, too.
I once heard a good old Methodist minister say that the devil was a roaring Hon,
roaming around the earth, seeking
whom he could devour, and that he bad
horns and a tail, and that we must believe it or doubt the scriptures; some
others deny that. Now the people of
Ladners are anxious to know about this
for we are sometimes charged with receiving more than our share of bis Satanic majesty's attention, and if we can
only locate him, it would be a great re--
lief to ns, for we would surely take him
by tbe horns and run him out. Also,
with reference to the rcsurection: If
some of the learned divines of the Royal
City would kindly enlighten us through
tbe columns of Tiik Columbian, whether
the ideas we are being taught, in this
the beginning of what may sometime
become a genuine hallelujah community,
are truly scriptural, and if not what is
the truth about those matters,.
At the adjourned meeting of tbo First
Presbyterian church on Monday even-
ing a second ballot was oast iu tho matter of a call for a minister. Rev. T,
Chalmers Jack, of Maitland, N.S., got a
majority of two votes, and the calfwill
be submitted to the Presbytery to-day,
at Victoria, for approval. Tho election
has given rise to a considerable display
of feeling, aud opposition to tbe call
being confirmed Ib likely to be made at
the mooting of the Presbytery.— News-

Mr. Croft poesented a petition from
tlie residents of Cowichan in reference
to the lowering of SonionB lake,   Tabled.
Mr. Cuimingham presented the report
tigate in connection with the education
of the select special committee to iuves-
department. The committee had met
that morning and elected Mr. Cunning-
bam chairman and Mr. Croft secretary.
They requested that certain correspondence with which they would have to
deal, be printed. Report adopted and
the correspondence ordered to be
printed.
House went Into committee on tho
National Electric Tramway Co. Bill,
Mr. Semlin in the. chair. Committee
roBe, reported progress and asked leave
to sit again..
Tho reports of committees on the
News-Advertiser Co. and Westminster
and Vancouver Tramway Co. Bills respectively adopted, bills road a third
time and passed.
House wont into committee on tho
railway bilk Mr. Cunningham in.the
chair. Committee rose and reported
progress and naked leave to sit again.
Report of committee on Asheroft and
Cariboo Railway Bill was adopted, bill
will be road a third time on Wednesday.
The report of the committee on tho
Sheriffs Act was adopted, tho bill read
a third time and passed.
The report of the committee on assignments for benefit of creditors. Bill
was adopted, read a second and third
time and passed.
Mr. Cunningham moved the second
reading of tho Fraaer River Gold Gra-
vela Syndicate Bill, He entered into a
complete history of the Fraser River
gold bars during the past twenty-five
years; and said they had lain there all
that tiino because thero had not been
enough capital forthcoming to work
them. This was the first foreign company that ever invested capital in British Columbia and this was the initial
step to develop tho mineral wealth of
the province.
Hon. Mr. Davie said he could not support the bill, at least in the way in
which it had been presented, and he did
not think it ought to pasB without
amendments of some kind. He felt
sure that it would not commend itself to
the honorable members of tho House in
its present shape. So far as he saw the
bill was not in order and tho House
would require a great deal more information on the matter of this large amount
of acreage to bo given the company before
decisive action could bo taken. The act
proposed to give up to the company all
rights to the minerals in that section of
laud, but what about the royalties and
tho rights of the crown? How were
they going to get over that? Without
the amendment of the law it would be
quite impossible to grant a mining franchise of this magnitude. Besides, the
act proposes to give the company the
lease in perpetuity, but that, of course,
was out of all practice. He did not
think the government would be doing
its duty .if it allowed this bill to jmss in
its present condition, and moved the adjournment of the debate.
Mr. Semlin said the Private BUIh
Committee bad seen nothing wrong with
tbo bill and were quite willing to grant
this company the 600 acres mentioned.
This valuable tract of laud had been useless to the province for the hist 30 years;
the miners around that part of the
country had regarded it with envying
eyes, but there was no capital to work
it. But that difficulty bud now been
overcome; the capital was bore and the
company only awaited the passage of
the bill to permit them to begin operating. Had it not been for the London
dock strike a year ago the machinery
would have been on the ground months
ugo; the plant was detained on the London docks, but was now bore. The
company ask this hind ns a mineral
claim, aud nothing else, and they are
acting in perfect good faith. He hoped
the loader of the Government would not
place any obstacles in the way as tbey
bad gone to a great deal of expense4n
importing costly machinery .from England and m justice to the Province and
the promoters of this industry the Government should pass this bill.
Hon. Mr. Robson said the honorable
member who had just spoken seemed to
he under tho impression that there was
another claimant in tho field, but if so
this had nothing to do with tbe caso.
Certain constitutional points hud presented themselves to the mind of the
honorable the Attorney-General and ho
merely wished the postponement of the
debate to allow of proper consideration
of the said points. Nobody had suggest-
any thing detrimental to tho bill; all
that was desired was to delav this matter to see how those difficulties could be
overcome,
Mr. Cunningham was very sorry that
the honorable the Attorney-General
thought it necessary to postpone tbe
debate. He asked if it were posible that
thiB Government could be less liberal
than the Dominion Government.
Hon. Mr. Mr. Robson—That has nothing to do with it.
Mr. Cunningham—Bnt it baa a good
deal to do with it.
Hon. Mr. Robson —Tbe honorable
member of course takes a warm and
proper interest in this bill, but ho will
consult the best interests of that bill if
he will allow the adjournment of this
debate for the roaBons alloged. The best
thing he can do is to permit this adjournment to take place. .
Hon. Mr. Davie —This bill should
come in with tho full consent of. the
Government; the Government ought to
bring it' lu.
Mr. Semlin—When will the Government take up this matter?
Hon, Mr. Davie—At once, and lot tho
House know immediately.
Tho debate was adjourned for a few
days.
Hon. Mr. Beaven drew attention to
the urgent necessity of the Government
bringing forward tho long promised redistribution bill. He said it would not
be fair or light to bring in this bill in
the dying days of the present session as
tho whole country was anxiously waiting to know what tho Government intended doing iu the matter.
Hon. Mr. Robaou—The Government
has a policy, iUs a good policy and the
Government is not ashamed of it, (opposition smiles and, "hear hear. )
When tho honorable, the leader of the
opposition asks for such a measure before tlie presentation of the estimates
are brought down, he is surely not
speaking according to book. • There was

After a brisk discussion pro. and con.
on subtle points of order, rule 25 of the
parliamentary practice was suspended to
allow Mr. Martin to move tne second
reading of the Okanagon and Kootenay
Railway Bill. He said this would be
the shortest line of railway from the
coast to the farmers of Kootenay country. That district, he believed, was on
the eve of astonishing developments; its
boundless stores of mineral wealth waB
about to lie opened up for tho benefit of
the Province and of the world (hear,
hoar). This railway would prove of incalculable benefit and assistance to
miners in getting iu their supplies, etc.,
and he hoped the bill would go through
without delay. Bill read a second time

OUR VICTORIA LETTER.
An Uneventful Week, Disturbed Only
by the Chinese Bill In the Local Parliament. Professor Foster's Athletic
Contest.  Animals In Deacon Hill Park.
(Prom Our Own Correspondent.)
Victoria, March 11.—A most uneventful period of time was the week that is
just gone. Scarcely an incident worthy
of record in even the local papers trenched upon the somnolent monotony that
wrapped the city in its folds. There
waa one little typhoon, to use a Chinese
expression, in the House of Assembly on
Wednesday, which rather ripped up tbe
blissful serenity of the place and filled
the air with expletives, jeers and laughter. And the Hero of the fight was the
member from Westminster city, who,
like our old friend. King Lear, alone in
his grandeur battling with the elements,
faced the whole aaaembly of British Columbia. Metaphorically, he placed his
back against the Chinese Bill and hurled brave defiance at his myriad foes in
the language of Fitz James:
And the combat will probably be renewed with augmented vigor before the
end of tho session.
ATHLETIC EVENTS.
It may interest the Royal City sports
to know that Prof. Foster had a bumper
house to witness his athletic entertainment at the Victoria Theatre last Saturday evening. Boxing was, of course,
the great "card" of the evening, although there were exhibitions of skill
by the blue-jackets and marines from
it. M. S. Amphion, that were highly entertaining. The bayonet and cutlass
exercise was beautifully done and won
great applause. Some of the decisions
in the boxing competitions were very
unjust, but as one of the gentlemen acting as judges was suffering from a severe
attack of stimulants, of the "red-eye"
Bpecies, these erratic awards are not surprising.
MINOR   TOPICS.
The weather took a sudden turn on
Sunday and a heavy gale set in from the
south-west accompanied by blinding
snow falls. The thermometer dropped
'way down, and before night there was
quite an uncomfortable degree of cold.
The Victoria Y. M. C. A. building on
Broad street waa formally opened last
Friday, the president, Hon. John Robson, and a number of gentlemen making
appropriate speeches. The building is
neat and comfortable, the gymnasium
being very well appointed, There are
the usual cosily furnished parlors and
meeting rooms and offices, all well ventilated and tastefully decorated. There
is n large membership.
THE BEACON HILL ANIMALS.
Some benevolent citizens are drawing
attention to the wretched condition of
the wild animals kept at Beacon Hill
Park. There is wide ground for complaint from any humane person; the
animals are not only crowded into low-
roofed, narrow hutches, but their surroundings are miserably dirty. The
eagles sit moping on a stick all day, their
heads against the ceiling and their
feathers all wet from the driving rain
which searches them out even in the
centre of their prison. The wolf Ib the
personification of discomfort, and as far
as a lupine visage can express anything,
the countenance of that unfortunate
coyote expresses deep and bitter disgust.
His cage might be his coffin for all the
comfort there is in tbe place. The racoon is the cheeriest of the crowd aud
gambols around his den, while the owls
glare down at him in saucer-eyed contempt, Three small hawks don't seem
to see the fun of living at all, and sit
shivering with their feet in the mud aa
if they didn't cqre any more for liberty
or a roost in a forest tree. The bears
aoem contented in spite of the countless
umbrellas and walking-canes that have
been used in prospecting the depth of
their fur. The small cinnamon bear
looks not unlike the unfortunate Mac-
Ginty, as the collar has worn all the hair
off his neck and what is left has curled
up in tho style of whiskers known as
" Galways," and his face at a distance,
if one is not careful, strongly resembles
that of the submarine excursionist.
The electric tramway your correspondent humbly begs pardon until
an accident happens to them this subject, of course, is tabooed.
Several pieces of fitting required for
the repairs on the Amphion had to be
ordered from England and are now on
the way, A vast quantity of prepared ammunition was destroyed when the accident occurred, among other things, over
a million rounds of rifle cartridges were
lost. *^^^^^
Comoi  News.
Thursday was a gala day in court circles nt Comox. The entire day was occupied by two justices in listening to an
interesting pig case from Hornby Island.
The pig must be a valuable one, for at
the close of the proceedings which consisted of cross charges both parties were
fined $15 each and costs.
Chickeat, a hoary headed Indian
chieftain, charged with assaulting his
Indian Queen, was fined t)\b and costs
or one month in gaol. He was brought
down to Nanaimo on the steamer Isabel
but tbe sight of the Nanaimo gaol and]
martial appearance of the assistant gaoler were too much for the chieftan, for
ho. instantly paid his fine and costs.
The health of the settlement is remarkably good, in fact so much so that
Dr. Struthers has decided to leave and
practice in some of the Sound towns.
The prospects of the Union mines are
daily becoming more encouraging, and
already a large amount of coal has accumulated at the pithead.
The weather has been much milder
and the snow is gradually disappearing.

ADVERTISING THE CITY.
At the last Council meeting a communication was read from R. T. Wil
limns, the well known directory publisher
of Victoria, asking the Council to take
1,000 copies of his proposed Westminster and Vancouver directory, at80cents
each, which would mean a total expen
diture for the purpose of $800. We do
not question at all that Mr. Williams
has put tbe lowest possible price on his
directories iu this offer to allow any
margin of profit for himself—in fact the
offer strikes us as quite a . reasonable
and fair one from Mr. Williams' standpoint—but we do question very seriously the wisdom and expediency of expending anything like $800 in such advertising as 1,000 copies of a directory would
give the city. There cau be little question that the City, as well as the Province at large, needs advertising; but
with tbe same money the Council could
procure 10,000 copies of a more effective
advertising medium than the best directories would afford—to wit, the local
weekly papers, as already suggested by
our morning cotemporary, Truth. The
papers themselves, without any special
matter for the occasion, would constitute a very effective and taking advertisement for the city in which they were
published, and three times the amount
of special matter that a directory would
furnish could easily be published in one
edition of the local weekly papers, in addition to a large amount of the usual
general information and news. Besides, it is safe to say, the newspapers
would be read by those receiving
them, and it is not so certain that the
directories would he, except for strictly
business purposes. Then the newspapers are printed in this city, and, besides giving an idea of local enterprise,
which would be lost altogether in the
case of the directories, by advertising
the city through the local newspapers
instead of by the alternative method,
the money expended for the purpose
would be kept in circulation at home,
which, without desiring to be blamed for
sectionalism or hoggishness, we think Is
an argument worth mentioning.
Derby, as thoughtful a statesman as the
country baa, approves of the idea in a
modified form. He says: "Its obvious
tendency to weaken the House of
Lords, by drawing off the most distinguished and active of the young
peers, might be counteracted by the
creation of life peerages, such as have
been often proposed, and it would, I
think, only be reasonable to give to tbe
heirs the power of replacing in their
own House such members of the peerage as might have in earlier life abandoned it; in fact, this power exists
already, for they might be made peers
for a new creation, and would be
qualified to sit as such in the absence
of such opportunity of return, if the
abandonment for life of the right
to Bit in the Lords were made irrevocable. I doubt whether the permission
in question would be largely taken ad.
vantage of. No doubt a seat in the
HoUse of Commons is to an ambitious
and energetic man preferable to one
iu the Lords, but, if more desirable,
it is also more uncertain, and most
men, I think, would hesitate before
permanently sacrificing an assured
position in one House for the doubtful
proapect of obtaining one iu the other
at a general election."
FRANCE IN AFRICA.
THE FRASER RIVER FISHERIES,
As the salmon fishing season on the
Fraser River approaches—and the natural opening is now right at hand—the
many who are interested in this important industry are beginning to manifest
anxiety as to when liscenses will be is-
Bued and with respect to the arrangements which the Fisheries Department
intends making in regard to the limitation of licenses this year. As explained
in this paper yesterday, there is no close
season on the Fraser—merely a close
weekly time—and the reason why licenses have not been issued before thiB
time is that the Dominion Fisheries
Department has still under consideration certain charges effecting the license and other fishery regulations, so far
as thiB river is concerned, aud the Provincial Inspector, Mr. Mowat, has not
yet received instructions on these points.
It is to be hoped the fishery authorities
may appreciate tbe necessity of issuing
their regulations for the season with ns
little further delay as possible, so as to
prevent inconvenience and loss to those
interested in the business, the number
of whom is large and increasing with
every season.
The question of regulating the licenses
so that justice shall be done to the canneries, the packing and freezing establishments, and the outside or individual
fishermen, while at the same time affording Borne necessary measure of protection to the industry itself, is a matter which past experience, not only upon this river, but on other salmon producing rivers of the coast, has shown to
be ono of great difficulty and seriousness, and the Department should not,
as we do not believe it will, be influenced in Its regulations by any one-sided or
Interested representations. Without
going into the question thoroughly at
thiB time, we would earnestly deprecate
any action based upon incorrect and
reckless theories that would, flying in
the face of all experience, remove every
restriction from the river, and, for the
Bake of, perhaps, temporary advantage,
deal a death blow to the industry. The
salmon fisheries of the Province, and of
the Fraser River particularly, are of
sufficient importance, as we have on
several occasions pointed out before, to
warrant tbe Dominion Government,
which makes the regulations governing
the fisheries, sending a special commission to Investigate and study the
subject thoroughly on the grounds, and
this, we trust, will be done before another season comes round.
A MORIBUND INSTITUTION.
Like the body known as the Senate
on this side of the "big drink," tbe
House of Lords across the water is an
institution that is continually out of repair and in need of improvement. That
a reconstruction of the venerable concern is among the political problems of
the more or leas near future, thinks a
contemporary, is apparent from the
strong interest taken in the matter by
the leading peers who hold seats in that
body. The radical politicians threaten
to wipe the second chamber out of existence, as tbe only measure that will
satisfy them, but the strong inherent
conservatism of the English people has
protected the institution from these
iconoclastic hands so far. That changes
are desirable is admitted on all hands.
Lord Roaebory, who talks almost disrespectfully at times of the assembly of
which he Ib a member, favors allowing
peers to resign when thoy wnnt to do so
and enter the House of Commons. Lord
As the despatches have shown,
France has been exploiting in Dahomey
lately. Without taking the rather difficult preliminary operation of conquering
the country, remarks an exchange, she
has announced the annexation of the
kingdom of Dahomey to her other African possessions. The British army that
penetrated Coomassie, under General
Wolseley, it Is a matter of record, found
the country a hotbed of malaria, and its
capital a human shambles. The troops
committed the horrible place to the
flames and got back out of the nightmare land of unspeakable horrors, where
no European could live any length of
time, as Boon as possible. General Butler, who, aa a captain, accompanied the
Bed River expedition to Fort Garry,
has given in his book, "Akimpoo," an
account of Dahomey which shows what
sort of a paradise the French are about
to enter. This country holds the extreme of all that is revolting in man and
nature; horrible as the images of Indian
idols are the people of the land; hideous
alike in their customs, their persons and
their worship; eaters of human flesh,
full of cowardice and of cruelty; half
tiger, half monkey; without art, honor,
truth or justice. And the land where
dwells this hideous race seems as hopeless as its people. Half rainless desert,
half feverish swamp aud tropic forest;
its rivers teeming with monstrous reptiles; its forests filled with uncouth
beasts; malaria and poisonous vapor
ever rising from its myriad marshes
and its coasts aud mountains fanned
with withering breezes which carry
death and destruction on their noxious
wings. Not even the enterprise of the
Briton could prevail over the eternity of
the curse which hangs over Dahomey.
Such is the entrancing picture of this
lovely land where France is sending her
hapless soldiers. The abolition of the
slave trade on the west coast, which we
have been taught to regard aa a most
humanitarian exploit baa really Increased the horrors of life in the interior.
When tlie slave trade flourished the
slave was a thing of value and could be
sold. Now he is of no value and is
slaughtered by thousands on thousands
annually. At each recurring "custom,"
or other occasion, sometimes for a mere
whim, slaves in Dahomey, Haussa,
Benin, Wassaw and Ashanti are tortured and butchered by scores. Yet these
countries teem with people.
From the foregoing description of Dahomey it would appear that France had
got a very big and a very ugly handful
and is not at all to be envied in her
latest colonial acquisition.

Au old newspaper cutting which has
just come to light in New Haven, Conn.,
contains an announcement by the publisher which will have a familiar sound'
to rural localities of the present day. It
is from the Connecticut Gazette of July
5, 1706, and the announcement is as
follows:
"All kinds of Provision, Fire Wood,
and other suitable Country Produce will
be taken as pay, of those who cannot
spare money, if delivered at the Printer's
Dwelling Houae, or at any other place
which may accidentally suit him."
The Gazette was the first paper published in the New Haven colony, the
first issue having appeared in 1766, and
tlie publisher gives the following account
of the arrangements made by him to procure news:
"Besides the help he hopes to receive
from four correspondents in this colony
and elsewhere, the Printer has sent for
three sorts of English magazines, the
Monthly Review of New Books, and one
of the Best London newspapers; these
together with American intelligence
from Nova Scotia to Georgia inclusive,
and also from Canada, cannot fall to
furnish him with a constant stock of
momentous materials and fresh advices
to fill this Gazette.
Tho art of making newspapers has
greatly changed in the one hundred and
twenty-five years since these words
were written,
Speaking of the late influenza epidemic, a New York medical journal says:,
Epidemic influenza has been laughed at,
made light of, and the butt of jests, both
sorry and merry, as being but-an exaggerated form of an ordinary cold in the
head. On the principle that he .laughs
best who laughs last, no one laughs
now, and doctors and laymen alike have
ceased to regard itne "something simply
benign." . Its "benignity" is strikingly
exemplified not only in the fact that it
has greatly swollen the mortality from
pneumonia and other lung troubles, but
in the augmented death rate from heart
disease. It upsets the whole nervous
system of its victim, and it has hurried
to their graves many already Buffering
from valvular and other diseases of the
heart. A characteristic of the present
epidemic is the intense physical and
mental depression. Insanity and dementia have, in consequence, increased
alarmingly in the past three to four
weeks of the epidemic and many physicians fear that the scenes enacted in
Europe during the .influenza epidemic of
1847, will he duplicated in New York.
Among the various diseases and disorders which have marked previous epidemics of influenza in Europe is cerebral
paresis {paralysis) and wherever it has
appeared an epidemic of suicides has
followed. The epidemics of 1883 and
1837 were marked by great numbers of
suicides, due to cerebral paresis, and
within the last four weeks, this has increased in this city to such an extent as
to alarm the physicians both in hospitals
and private practice. Its spread Mas
first noticed at Bellevue Hospital, but
so little was known in this city about
the Russian influenza that no attention
was paid to the spreading brain disorder.

A clever young woman In St. Joseph,

man of her choice without his consent.
She managed to become maid of honor

of the ceremony advanced with the
groomsman, and thoy were pronounced

Some phases of poverty in all large
cities seem almost beyond the hope of
remedy by legislation. Numbers of girls
in Boston are working for fifty cents per
week; and it is said that there are many
infants at work. An instance was
cently made public of a widow with five
young children. This family earns only
$2.26 to $2,60, and amongst tlie bread
winners is a little three-year-old girl
who does basting, and some days prepares ob many as five pairs of pants.
An actress in New York has entered a

Tribune, which Ib authority for the above
statement, " the proceedings will be

The Russians, it is learned, are still
adding to their fleet. Two large iron
clads are to be built in England of great

largest Krupp guns in use afloat. Two
others are being built at the Black Sea
arsenals, a large belted cruiser of 10,000
tons displacement at Cronstadt, and
French company has under construction
an iron-clad of 9,000 tons displacement,
Besides these the Gnugut, an armoured
cruiser of 0,000 tons, and a protected
cruiser of 2,600 tons are well advanced.
The Russians are building also a new
armoured vessel of 1,000 tons, called tbe

St. Louis ascribes Its non-success in

WHAT WOMEN  CAN   00.
Odd Occupations Pursued by Impeeunloaa
Bat Untorprliinf Ladloi.
How often the vexed question arises:
•'What shall I do—either to earn my
own living or to add la some way to a
meager Income?" While I waa traveling around last summer I used my
eyes and tongue, I trust, to some good
purpose, writes a correspondent of the
Minneapolis Housekeeper, and hope
that some of the unusual occupations In
which I found women engaged may interest you. I trust also that to some
may be suggested the way to Independence.
While at one of the hotels in the Cats-
kills I was much interested ina bright
young woman who, at stated hours- was
always surrounded by a group ot girls and
boys. One morning off they would all
go for a tramp to some spot of interest;
at another hour she would be surrounded
by a younger company playing grace-
hoops, swinging them in hammocks or
entrancing thorn Into silence In some
corner of the broad piazza with some
charmingly-told story or bit of history
so skillfully disguised as to be rapturously received. After a few days' repetition of these performances I resolved
to cultivate her acquaintance and find
out, if possible, what relation she bore
to those bright-eyed, active children.
I found her original and clover, quite
willing to tell me how well she was succeeding In this new field. As a teacher,
she was accustomed to spend her vacations at this place in the mountains,
nnd had noticed how neglected the children were, the parents not able to have
nurses and governesses for them, and
too indolent, oftentimes, to amuse them
themselves, allowed thorn to wander off
at all hours and in all places to find
what amusement they might. So on
coming up thiB year our bright girl had
it announced that for a certain small
sum per hour she would amuse, Instruct
or guide the plays of the children, large
arid small. She Is well content with
this summer's work and has some new
plans already under way for next season. A new name will have to be coined
for her, but at present we will call her
the children's friend.
Tbere goes a little friend of mine
down tbe street, neat in attire, with a
business-like air. You would never
guess her odd occupation, so let us follow ber as she enters a beautiful house
and proceeds to the drawing-room. Evidently the Friday's sweeping has just
boon done, for the furniture is drawn
out into the middle of tho worn and dust
lies powdered over mantels and cabinets.
Our friend opens her little hand-sachol
and takes out an array of silk and
cheese-cloth dusters. Deftly she goes
to work, and soon all tho furniture is
dusted and In order; then the bric-a-
brac, too precious to be trusted to clumsy Biddy's hands, is taken from an adjoining room and arranged artistically
on mantels and in cabinets. Scarfs and
curtains are next gracefully draped and
then Bhe departs for the noxt house on
her list. She assuros me that she likes
the work of "professional duster" and
that her engagements fill thrco days of
every week, tine expects soon to be
employed by a large furniture house as
an arranger of furniture in their show
rooms.
I have in mind a young physician's
wife living in a large manufacturing
city not ten miles from where I am
writing. Bright, clover and ambitious,
gifted in letter writing; quick and accurate at figures and with a good knowledge of book-keeping, she determined
to turn her talents to account. So, half
in earnest, balf in the spirit of fun, sihe
inserted an advertisement in the evening papers somewhat llbo this:
"Business and love letters written,
books kept, bills made out and accounts
Bottled." Some six months after she
laughingly told mo of her succoss. At
first a few letters written for servant
girls, then keeping books arid making
out bills for a shrewd but Ignorant
Irishman who kept a little grocery store
on the block where Bhe resided, constituted tho oxtent of her busiiuias. But
now she tells me that she has all nho
can possibly do. She has furnished a
pretty little office of her own and is accumulating a nice little sura In tho
bankf this, too, without neglecting her
home or her husband'B interests.
A widow left without resources and
with two small children to support was
talking with a friend about the necessity of dolugsoinothing to earn her living, Said the friend: "Why not make
the waffles for which you are famous
and sell them?" Acting on tho suggestion she went to tho city, hired a small
ground flat on a business avenue and
opened the front apartment as a small
lunch room. She sold nothing but
waffles and ooffeo and soon became celebrated for the delicious golden-brown
triangles dusted with powdorud sugar
and the clear amber coffee that she dispensed. She Is known all over that
part of town as tbe "Waffle Widow,"
and she earns enough to support herself
and her ohtldren In comfort.
WITNESS AND JUDGE.
A Victim of tin! Law l'iin-d for Ulvlngthu
Court Oood Advice.
An amusing scene was recently enacted In a country court-room In Maine,
says the Lewiston (Mo.) Journal. The
trial Justice, a big, pompous official
with a voice like a trombone, took it
upon himself to examine a witness, a
little, withered old man, whose face was
as red and wrinkled as a smoked herring.
• "What Is your name?" asked tho justice,  — ■^«..-*.~-   ■   ■ *
"W'y. 'squire," said the astonished witness, "you Know my name as well as 1
know yourn."
"Never you mind what I know, or
what I don't know," was the caution
given with magisterial severity. "I ask
the question In my official capacity, and
you're bound to answer it under oath."
With a contemptuous snort tho witness gave his name, and the questioning
proceeded,
"Whore do you live?"
"Wal, I snuml" ejaculated tho old
man. "W'y," he continued, appealing
to the laughing listonors, "I've lived in
this town all my life, and bo's he,"
pointing to the justice, "an', b'gosh, to
hear him go on you'd, think—"
"Silencer thundered tbe Irate magistrate. "Answer my question or I'll
fine you for c dm tempt of court."
Alarmed by the threat, the witness
named bis place ot residence and the
examination went on.
"What Ib your occupation
"Huh?"
"What do you do for a living?"
"Oh. git out, 'squire! Just as If you
don't know that I tend gardens in the
summer season an* saw wood winters!"
"As a private oltlien I do know It, but
as the court I know nothing about you,"
explained the perspiring justice
"Wal, 'squire," remarked the puzzled
witness, "If you knowsomethln1 outside
the court-room and don't know nothln'
In It, you'd better get out an' let somebody try this cue that's got boss
sense,"
Tbe advice may have been well
moant, but It cost the wltneBS ten dollars, 	
Mm. Yaiulerbilt'a Necklace.
The diamond and pearl necklaue worn
on State ouuuslona by Mrs. Cornelius
Vandorbllt has excited the greatest
wondor and admiration. The striking
foaturo of this necklace is the diamonds
are plerood through the center and are
slrung alternately with the pearls, It
is said It required many woeksof patient
labor to pierce each stone.	
CARRIED HIS  POINT.
Dot Laedle Sherman Muilolan Geti BU
Inning* at a Funeral.
A funeral procession was moving solemnly through Houston street a few
days ago, says tho New York Sun, with
a straggling German band adding to the
woeful aspect of the scene by playing
low and wheezy airs. It was a brass
band of the order that requires gigantic
instruments and restful attitudes to obtain the best effect. The Instruments
were on hand, but the band was compelled to keep moving. The horses
moved forward at a speed far greater
than the regulation funeral march. The
last man in tbe band bad a complicated
brass instrument of a light and giddy
temperament that necessitated constant
watchfulness to prevent it from breaking into rollicking music. Between this
instrument and the pole of the hearse,
that frequently struck the poor musician In tbe small of the back, the procession aBsumed at times the festive appearance of a target company. Tho musician was a short, phlegmatic-looking
German who had devoted the greater
part of his life to playing such cheerful music as "Die Wachtam Rhein,"
and "Dot Loedte Sherman Pand," and
so seldom were the occasions that he
oaugbt such a snap as playing for a
funeral that he was totally unable to
grasp the truo spirit of the undertaking.
Occasionally ho would succeed in getting
his instrument down to tbe proper
death of woe, but then the pole of the
hearse would hang into him and break
tbo music up In a shrill, startled squeak.
At othor times the uneven puvlng-stones
would joBtlo the littlo square shoot of
music on his instrument upside down
and convort the air from a dirge to a
dance. This put all tho other musicians out, and many were the anathemas heaped upon the poor fellow. But he
bad truo grit and clung to his place In
Bpiteof all its dangers until Grand street
was roached, when the loader of the
band discharged him. This set him
free, and he dropped back behind tbe
bearso and turned his instrument loose,
A wild, exhilarating molody struck that
funeral and attracted a crowd of small
boys In a minute. Tho baud in the lead
with Its mournful notes had no show,
for their music was drowned in the
shrill notes of the solitary Gorman,
and a halt was called. Tlie funeral
drew up to the curb, and the leader of
the band, strengthened by a dozen
mourners, tried to bully the solitary
German. He drowned their threads in
music. Then thoy tried to arbitrate by
making lavish promises. But tlie solitary German Ignored thorn. Finally be
accepted two dollars, and the funeral
procession was again formed. It moved
on, leaving the solitary German sitting
in a boor saloon with his cherished Instrument in his arms, and, while he
sipped his beer, explaining to the proprietor that ho had been educated to attend on mirth undjoyousnossand not on
funerals ami rrrhjf,
FUNNY   BILL   NYE.
The Illi.fi.vitrei-  of tho   Grout   Humorist
Muk.'H Known lllii Cluluig.
The question is in active circulation
in tho Kast, "Who discovered Bill
Nye?" I lay claim to the distinction
and am ready to contest it with any
pretender lu the United States or
Missouri, Bays the curbstone editor of
the St. l*aul Honoer-Presa. Twelve years
ago I was hovot'ing ovor tho destinies
of a consumptive county organ in
Lone Tree, iN'elj., giving it the same
course of treatment I was myself tak-
frig—plenty of pitta ozono and promises.
BUI iS'yo worked his way from Denver
to Laramie, nnd iu conipitoy with a man
—just a plain man with no literary
frills to help him up tbe hill of distinction—started the Daily Laramie
Boomerang. The pnper dropped into
the journalistic clrelcsof tho wild West
like a nigger-chaser thrown into a
crowded street on Fourth of July night.
Such a journal was never before seen
nor since. From tho "kick off" it was
at once seen that the Boomerang stood
alone, not exactly grand or
gloomy, but peculiarly peculiar. It had
not a rival in the Union, and to every
ono it was palpable that something indescribable had dropped. It chanced
that tho same weok of the inauguration
of tbe Boomerang I published in my
Lone Tree Squib a fool editorial, "What
Are You Living For?" and leading off
with, "Young man, what are you living
for? Have you an object dear to you as
life, and without its attainment would
you feci life to be a mockery?" It went
on to dig down deep into pathos and
throw up big chunks of sentiment, and
as nobody kicked about It, as was usually tbe case with about every other editorial I chopped out, I soon forgot all
about it. But in glancing at Saturday's
isauo of the Boomerang an article struck
me as being somewhat familiar. I be-
oame interested. It commenced:
"Young man, what are you living for?
Are you a victim of mania a potu, or are
you prepared to wake up and crack your
heels together? Have you an object
dear to you as life, or do you propose to
lie down iu the furrow and let some Jim
river aristocrat chaw your name?" And
so on the article ran, taking up each one
of my flowery sentiments and turning
them inside out. I had discovered Bill
Nye. A correspondence ensued with no
reference to pistols or coffee; we became
excellent friends, and are liable to remain so.
AN  EX-SLAVE OWNER.
He Haw That «Dc 01c Man" Waa Hurled
Bealde Hli Children.
At the dinner station when we
stopped ono day on a certain Tennessee
railroad almost the first sight which
greeted tbo eyo of those who got off
was a rough burial box on the platform
and seated near It was an old black
woman with a handkerchief to her eyes,
says the Indianapolis Sentinel, When
kindly asked tho cause of her sorrow
Bhe pointed to the box and replied:
"Do ole man's In dar,"
"Your husband?"
"Yes; died two days ago back yeroln
de kentry."
"And what are you doing with tbe
body hero?"
"I wants to hurry it upatCharlestown,
but I hain't got money 'nuff to take it on
do railroad."
"What nonsense!" exclaimed a man,
as ho oame forward. "What's the difference where a nigger Is burled? Thoy
want her to bury it here, but she won't.
She's determined to take it to Charles-
town."
•'For what reason?" asked the passenger who had put all the previous
questions.
"Kaso, sab, all de fo'chill'en Is burled
up dar', and his mudder arid sister, an'
de poo' ole man will be lonesome down
yere."
"What bosh!" growled the kicker.
"Look here!" whispered the other, as
he went over to him. "I'd rather be a
nigger with her soul than to bo a white
man with yours! She's right Let the
family doad sleep together."
He entered the express office, paid for
the shipment of the body, bought tbe
widow a Moket for Charlostown and then
dropped a 910 gold piece in her hand and
said;
"Give hltn a decent funeral, mammy,
and thiB will put up a headboard to
mark the grave."
"Moy de Lawd bless you for—"
But he hurried in to snatch a bite to
eat. When he was gono I made inquiries as to bis Identity, and finally
found a man who replied:
"Why, that's Colonel Blank, of Alabama. He owned over three hundred
niggers when the war broke out."
THE MISTLETOE.
Enough of It Growing* In Thii Country
for All Feital Purpoiea.
There is mistletoe growing in our
own country quite good enough to answer all the festal purposes ot the
mistletoe descended from that which
the old Druids in their white robes cut
with a golden sickle just after the new
of the moon, and distributed for charms
against all evil to their believing tribes.
It is not, indeed, the true and ancient
mistletoe; but it takes a botanist and a
good one to tell you why not; and it is
quite as interesting in its appearanoe,
with the long, olive-like leaves and the
singular translucent berry with a gleam
of green in its whiteness, something between a moonstone and^ifale cat's-eye
quarts in tint It grows any where in
tbe Virginia latitudes, abounds upon
the mesqulte In Texas, and Is usually
to be found In the Washington flower
market through the Christmas holidays.
The plant is certainly beautiful and
curious; but except for its parasitical
origin and growth, which gave it a sort
of a mystery to the unlearned and primitive mind, Jt is difficult to see why it
ever attained such eminence as it had,
although It is true that the Druids gave
It veneration only when found growing
on the oak, which was Boered to the sun
—tho Druidlcal worship and that of the
old Persians having much In common;
hut it held with them, for whatever
reason, an important part in tho great
rltoB of the winter solstice, corresponding to our Christmas festivities. One of
the old northern myths makes the dart
which killed the beautiful Balder out ot
tbe mistletoe, which alone ot all nature
had not boon bound to do him no harm,
possibly ns showing that there is nothing in tho universe without significance,
and "with Him tbere Ib no great nor
small." Nowadays tho strange plant is
found loss often on the oak than on the
apple tree, where it kills out whole
orchards, being all but indestructible Itself, and living just as long as there is
any sap iu tbe tree It has chosen; in
some regions it has, indeed, become
more profitable to raise and Bell than
the apples would be. In England, and
in the wild state, it iB most often sown
by tbe mlssolthrush; but it is raised
artificially by crushing the berries on a
bough, to which their glutinous matter
adheres and where tbey generate; others
make a slit with a penknife on the
underside ot a branch, so that it may
not be observed by the birds, and there
insert the seed, and something of a
weird and mysterious character is Been
in a species of intelligence manifested
by it, since, in whatever direction the
seed Is pointed, the radical will turn
toward the surface, and fasten itself in
such manner as to draw the most nutriment It can, and it has even been successfully grafted upon another miseltoe.
That it should still have a part in our
Christmas keeping is owing to tho fact
that we always have a tenderness toward the customs of our ancestors.—

FORCE IN SILENCE:
How John Randolph Defeated Campbell,
the Scotch Logician.
In painting the great picture ot the
sacrifice of Iphlgenla the artist, it Ib
Bald, exhausted the emotions of grief
and horror in the faces of tbe bystanders.
"He has loft nothing unsaid. How
can he depict her father's sorrow?"
asked anxiously his friends who wero
watching the development of the
picture. He throw a mantle over Agamemnon's face. The blank silence was
more effective than any pictured woo.
One of the most extraordinary effects
produced by absolute silence is recorded
in the reports of a convention in which
the foremost men of Virginia took part.
John Randolph had a measure to carry
In which ho looked for the opposition of
Alexander Campbell, afterward founder
of a large sect, a man then noted for his
scholarship and power in debate.
Randolph had never seen the Scotch
logician, but he had heard enough of
him to make him and his partisans uneasy. When, therefore, tbe gaunt
stranger first rose to speak In the conversion, Randolph looked at him with
suob an air of alarm as to attract the
whole attention of the convention, and
as be glanced around seemed to bo asking for sympathy in his coming defeat.
He then composed himself to listen in
rapt attention.
Campbell, aware of this by-play, hesitated and lost the thread of his argument Randolph's face by turns as ho
listened expressed weariness, indifference and finally unspeakable contempt
He leaned back aud yawned. Campbell
Bat down hastily. He had lost the
whole force of his speech. Not a word
had been spoken, but he was defeated.

A Viefal Invention.
A very useful Invention tending to
lessen tho possibility of accidents in
factories is now being extensively
adopted in England. The breaking ot
a glass, which Is adjusted against the
wall of every room In the mill, will at
once stop tho engine, an electric current being o&ublishod between the
room and tbo throttle-valve of the engine, shutting off the steam In an instant. By this means the engine was
stopped at one of the mills-recently in a
tew Beconds, and a young girl, whose
clothes had become entangled In an upright shaft, was released uninjured.

The programme for Btreet improvements laid before the City Council on
Monday night has mot with general
favor on all hands. The opinions expressed on the streets in nearly every
instance have been favorable to the
plana of improvements, aud there Ib no
doubt that when the by-law is submitted to tho people for their vordlct, the
vote will lie almost ununiinous in Its
favor.
Some very desirable and valuable

The Kootenay Miner, a weekly news-
Gaper, will make its first appearance at
elson on or about April 15th. The
object of the new paper is to attract
the attention of capital and practical
minors to the mines and prospects tributary to Nelson. It Ib claimed that
tbo field for this venture is a good one,
and that tho people of Nelson have offered
lilwral inducement for the establishment of the paper. The publishers are
Messrs. Houston, Ink and Allen, all ex-
metnben of Truth staff. The Miner
should succeed, managed as it will be
by practical aud experienced newspaper
men. The Columbian hopes that it will
realise all that its promoters expect.
Children Cry for Pitcher's CastorlaJ
A Novel Joke.
The police officials atChemainus, says
the Free Press, received information
from one of, the residents there that a
certain party had been guilty of slaughtering deer out of season for the sake of
the skins. They immediately set to
work to investigate the matter and having occasion to go to the informant's
house for additional information, discovered (much to their surprise) a full
grown buck. The informant was taken
by surprise and endeavored to get out
of it the best way he could, but the
police concluded they had got the right
man and consequently took him into
custody. Mr. J. P. Planta, S. M., left
the city to-day to try the case.
The Y. M. C. Orchestra.
The Y. M. C A. orchestra had a good
practice last night, seventeen players
being present. Tlie new bass violin and
Mr, Geo. Cunningham's new trombone
were tried, and gave great satisfaction
The orchestra holds a practice every
Tuesday evening. The organization
now boasts twenty members, among
thoso who have joined quite recently
being Messrs, Falding, Wilson, Duncan
and Tunibull. A pleasant circumstance
to note about last night's practice was
the presence of Mr. Falding for the first
time since his late illness. The Y. M.
C. A. orchestra appears to lie attracting
to its membership some of the best
musical talent in the city, and under the
able leadership of Mr. K. S. Yeomans it
has a very promising future before it,
The Westminster Juniors.
A meeting of the Royal Lacrosse Club
was held at the City Hall last night,
when it was decided to do away with
the title "Royal" and be known iu
future as a branch of the Westminster
LacrosBO Club, undet the name of the
"Westminster Juniors." It was also
agreed that the juniors should have
their own officers and by-laws and constitution, which, however, are to work
in accord with those of the senior club.
It has been arranged that the junors
will have one member of the club a
member of the Provincial Association
Executive Committee. These changes
now place the new club on a satisfactory
footing, and instead of weakening tho
chances of both teams for a successful
season, as would have been tho case had
the organizations been distinct and separate, tlie effect will now be to strengthen
the whole.

With Masonic   Honors.
It has been arranged that the corner
stone of the new Pariah Building, to be
erected for His Lordship Bishop Sillitoe,
at the corner of Church and Clarkson
streetB, will be laid with Masonic honors.
This interesting and impressive ceremony will be conducted by tho officers
of Union Lodge No. 9, A. F. &. A. M,
assisted by the brethcrn, and all in ful
regalia. Mr. R. F. Bonson, the contractor for the new building, commenced
work on the foundation this morning,
and the laying of the corner stone will
take place next Tuesday afternoon at 3
o'clock. The last ceremony of this kind
iu Westminster was tho occasion of the
laying of the corner stone offtheMasonic
and Oddfellows block, and the general
interest manifested in that event will
most certainly be repeated in this. It
Ib to be hoped fine weather will favor
the day named.

The Warsplte.
The London Times of the 15th of Feb.
Bays: "The steel-plated ocenn cruiser
Warspite, 10, 8,400 tons, 10,000-horse
power, was commissioned yesterday iu
tho steam basin at Chatham Dockyard
by Captain the Hon. Hedworth Lamb-
ton (late commander of the Royal yacht
Osborne) as flagship of Rear-Admiral C.
F. Hotham, C. B., one of the late Lords
of the Admiralty, who has been appointed to succeed Reur-fAdmiral A. C. F.
Heneage as Commander-in Chief in tlie
Pacific. The blue jackets joined the
vessel from the Royal Naval Barracks,
and the Royal Marines from the Chatham Division, the Royal Marine Artillery arriving from Eaatney. The War-
spite, with all her stores, guns, and
other weights on board, represents an
expenditure of three-quarters of a million sterling. On leaving Chatham in
the course of a few weeks to proceed to
her station she will relieve the Swift-
sure, 18,6,010 tons, 4,010 horse power,
which was commissioned as flagship for
the Pacific iu April, 1888."
Saturday's Match.   -
On Saturday afternoon the Vancouver
and Westminster foot ball teams will
play a match on Queens park. Tho
Vancouver team has lately played
match with Victoria and since then has
practised steadily, with the result that
the men are in the very best form. On
tho other hand, the Westminster club
has not had a real good practice this
year, and but for the excellent material
that can be brought into play when occasion requires, and which can do good
work at any time, practice or no practice, its chances of victory on Saturday
would be very slim indeed. But tlie
Westminster men have a happy knack
of playing a most stubborn game on all
occasions, and have also a faculty for
defeating opponents who expect an easy
win. The game on Saturday may not
result in favor of the Royal city, but tlie
visitors will have to fight a hard battle
even to succeed in forcing a few minor
points.
A special train leaving Vancouver at
o'clock will bring the visiting team
and their fricndB. The match iB exciting the greatest interest in Vancouver,
and it is probable several hundred will
come over and see the contest. Every
Westminsterite who can spare the timo
will be on hand to witness the struggle.
If the weather is fine tho Indies wilt be
out in full force.
A Wonderful Story.
The Vancouver World is responsible
for the following yarn: Last year's was
the largest salmon pack in British Columbia and tlie run was one of the largest' ever known to have occurred.
Cayoosh Creek iB a small stream dropping into the Fraser about 200 miles
'rom Its mouth. For over three months
the salmon in trying to ascend the stream
were so thickly crowded together that
one might kill any number by pushing a
pitchfork Into the water. Old Indians
say they never saw such a Bteady run of
salmon night and day as went up that
stream for those three months, nor such
a mass of dead ones floating down. So
thick were they that when the water
receded the shores were lined with tlie
dead. About two miles up the river is a
lake, and at the foot of it the salmon
were piled a foot deep. The wind blowing up the lake dashed the water and
the salmon up on the shore, mangling
them into a confused mass, which
afterwards pu trifled, causing the
death of the other kinds of fish.
The wondorful part of the story
is that along Cayoosh Creek the cattle
have developed a taste for salmon.
Some cows have been known to eat bacon, but in Lillooet they eat salmon
with apparent relish, preferring them
to bunch grass, and thrive upon them.
So plentiful was the supply that the animals became choice in their use of this
strange viand. The salmon on the
shores were too dry for them. The cows
have been seen to walk into the stream
where it is shallow, catch live salmon
and eat them with relish, the latter
wriggling their tails lustily as they go
down to—the bottom of the cow's belly.
Several visitors to the creek have seen
the occurrence, but not wishing to secure the fame of being the boss fish
liars, have refrained from relating the
story. But the foregoing was given ub
by a reliable resident of the vicinity,
who vouches for its correctness in every
particular, and Invites any doubters to
visit the creek and inveatigate for himself. It is stated, too, that the lacteal
fluid is quite sweet and does not taste a
bit Siwashy.

Bykert'i Connection With the Cypress
Hills Timber Limit Deal Fully Ex-
posed.—The Heroes of Luuily's Lane
Remembered.
\From Our Own Correspondent.]
Ottawa, March 12.—The discussion
of the Rykert Cypress Timber Limit affair waa taken up thiB afternoon, Sir
Richard Cartwright making a thorough
exposure of the whole affair and placing
the member for Lincoln in quite an awkward position. He showed that although
Rykert claimed not to be an agent for
Sands, or to be personally striving to secure the limits, ne received nearly $75,-
000 for his services in the transaction.
The limits were bought at $5 per mile
and sold at $2,000 per mile.
A meeting of the agricultural aud colonization committee was held this morning. It was explained by the deputy
minister that the report that the Crofters in the North West Territories were
in distress was incorrect, and that they
were never in better condition than
they are at present.

He subsequently got it restored to the

POLICE   COURT,
[Before T. C. Atkinson, V. M., and Capt
Plttendrigh, J. P.]
The court house this morning was
filled with an eager crowd who had been
attracted by the report that a number
of horse owners and drivers would be
prosecuted for infringing the streets and
sidewalks by-law. The police court
clerk, Constable Smith, sat at his table
aud counted over the cash as each bylaw breaker entered the inner circle and
paid his fine. It was remarked that if
tlie constable had only been blessed
with a Hebrew cast of countenance, instead of an honest Scotch face, the scene
might have been mistaken for a Jewish
money changer transacting his business
in the synagogue.
John Ferguson, charged with leaving
a horse unhitched on Columbia street,
contrary to the provisions of tho streets
and sidewalk by-law, pleaded guilty and
was fined $2.50. Mr. Ferguson took his
fine most good-naturedly, and paid it
out of an immcuso leather bag as if to
intimate that he was prepared to pay
by the ton.
William Barr pleaded guilty to leaving his team without an attendant on
the street, then smiled nnd paid $2.50
into tho exchequer.
Albert J. Smith, under tho same
charge, pleaded guilty to the offense
and paid the fine without protest.
Marshall Sinclair, charged with leaving his horse unhitched on the public
street, pleaded not guilty through his
solicitor, Mr. Morrison. Mr. Sinclair
was not present in person, and the mag
ist rates hesitated before commencing
tlie ease iu the absence of the defendant,
Mr. Morrison claimed that tlie summons was not properly served, and asked that the prosecution prove its ease.
Chief Pearce said tlie summons was
proved by the appearance of Mr. Sinclair's attorney, and asked counsel for
tlie defence what reason he had to give
for Mr. Sinclair's absence.
Mr. Morrison decided to keep his reasons to himself.
Tho court ordered tho case to be proceeded with, and Chief Pearce took the
box. Ho said: Yesterday morning
about 9:45 o'clock I was standing on
Columbia street and noticed Mr. Sinclair's horse, attached to a cart, standing opposite the store. It was unfastened and I wont over and examined it
so as to make sure. I then went aud
laid an information and obtained a summons, which I left in Mr. Sinclair's store.
Mr. Sinclair was not in, but the man In
charge said he would give it to him on
his return.
To Mr. Morrison: It was not 8o'clock,
it was 0:45 o'clock; looked at my watch.
Don't know if Mr. Sinclair owns the
horse,- but he uses it to deliver goods all
over the city. It is not my duty to notify every Tom, Dick or Harry to tie
their horses. The horse was secured to
the cart, and the cart was secured to the
horse, but that was all the security about
it. I swear that the horse is frequently
driven by Mr. Sinclair's man and is constantly used by him. Have seen Mr.
Sinclair lending the horse to water
have also Been him feeding the animal.
Chief Pearce said the rules and regulations governing the police had been
placed iu his hand only a day or two ago
by the police committee, of which Mr.
Sinclair Is a member, with instructions
to enforce them to the last letter of the
law. In summoning Mr. Sinclair and
others he was simply doing his duty.
Mr. Morrison made an able and patho
tic appeal on behalf of his case, but the
bench declared the law had no respect
to persons and imposed a fine of $2.50.
Says The Colonies and India'. Tho
Chinese iu Australia hall from all parts
of the Celestial Empire, and the methods
of oath taking among' them are consequently various. The commonest form,
however, is that of simply blowing out
a match. The attesting Chinkie braces
himself up aa the match is drawn for
Btriking, and when the light has been
puffed out he has become a perfect
model of austere solemnity, evidently
determined to attest to nothing but the
petrified truth. In addition to the
match-striking feature, some of the
Chinese insist upon having a fowl's head
cut off; and where this practice obtains
a court room sometimes presents a
rather curious spectacle. On some of
the diggings in Queensland occasionally,
where the litigants, with all their witnesses, will be Chinamen, there are
generally two crates of fowls—one for the
defendants and one for the plaintiffs-
kept at a handy distance outside the
court house, to lie requisitioned from as
required during the progress of the case.
The custom which a Celestial in Calcutta
insisted upon having observed before he
would favor the court with the "truth,
the whole truth, dec," was that of lighting a 'fire, placing it on a saucer, and
then breaking the saucer to pieces.

THEY GOT THE SCENT;
How an Oshkosh (Wis.) Miser Rewarded
the Good Little Boys*  «
There is a misorly old lady living n
Oshkosh, says the Times of that city,
who, it is believed, judging from circumstances, has cheats and chests of
gold secreted in her house somewhere.
Sho is so penurious and hates to part
with her money so bad, that when she
Ib compelled from absolute necessity to
buy the necessaries of life she walks to
the store farthest from her house so
that Bhe can keep in her possession the
money that must bo spent for food a
little longer, and pays for her purchase
with more reluctance than iBaac of
York could- command while parting
with his gold.
It Is told ot this old lady that one
day, while counting over some money, a
five-cent piece dropped in a big wood-
box filled with wood, shavings, etc. She
searched for an hour In vain, and was
alnioHt distracted by the loss, whon a
bright thought struck her. Sho would
have a couple of little boys, who were
playing near the houso, Book it Accordingly she called thorn in and told
them that if thoy would find the money
which had dropped In the wood-box she
would give thorn each a cent. Tho
youngsters, eager to earn the price of a
stick of candy, wont willingly to work,
and after hunting for about two hours
gave a howl of delight whon they discovered the missing coin.
The old woman eagerly snatched it
from them and, after carefully depositing It In her pocket-book, called thorn
dear little chlldron and said they well
earned their reward. Sho then went
into another room, brought out a
bottle that had once been filled with
perfume, and gave each one of tbo boys
a scent of tho lingering odor, after
which she called them dear little darlings again and told them to run away
now and play. The little followB wero
so overwhelmed with gratitude at the
old lady's munificence that thoy kindly
thanked her in their abstraction
When Baby was sick, we gave her Castorla.
