Central African Complications.
Tlio situation of the Italian forces
iii Africa is not altogether us free
from peril as the excellence of their
Massowah fortifications woultl indicate. That city, to Iib? suro, is on
an island in a bay that is seven
miles across,, is surrounded by a
stone wall, and protected by Krupp
guns so that it ii iinpregnabje against
sav»ges. Indeed, a civilized foe,
with aU. tne munitions of improved
war, would encounter great difficulty
dislodging the 3,600 disciplined
troops quartered in Massowah. But
the patient sieges of which tho
African tribes have shown themselves capable may be more effective of the main purpose than forceful measures, and it is possible to
cut the Italians oft' from both food
and water in nourishing quantities.
The water supply in Massowah
comes from welis in n fortified village three miles from the bay, and
if that should be interrupted by the
demolition of pipes and causeways
it would be necessary for the troops
to rely upon condensers, thereby
limiting their water supply. The
road past Makulla,h, the fortified
village, is tho principal caravan
route, the trade over which hus already beon stopped by the disturbances, and it is not at all unlikely
that the Italians in Massowah may
be forced to abandon the place. As
nearly as may be ascertained, there
is u common sentiment, if no organized co-operation, among the various
native powers against the establishment of any foreign interests in
that particular stretch of continent.
It is not the Abyssinians under
King John alone whom the Italians
have to provide against. King
Menelek, tf Shoa, formerly ,tho
southern province of Abyssinia, but
now an independent state, has been
pursuing an aggressive policy to the
extent of taking possession of Egyptian Harrar and putting to flight
its Emir. This movement was actuated, solely by a desire to drive
nut the Egyptians, illustrating that
natred of foreign interlopers that
will concentrate the forces of King
John and King Menelek against the
Italians. Another element that
must, soon or late, enter into this
evicting warfare is purely Soudanese. The rebels who', under El
Mahdi, captured Khartoum two
yeurs ago have there established a
sultanry with Abdulla Khalifa at
its head, with an army estimated to
number 300,000. A flourishing
trade has been opened on the Nile,
thc coinage of silver and gold has
been introduced, and the government
is in a condition of substantial prosperity. Khartoum lies westward a
little to the south of Massowah,
and though the sultan has expressed
an intention not to interfere with
the Egyptians unless he is first attacked, he does view with jealousy
Italian or other foreign invasion.
So much is native empire the dream
of this people, their co-operation
with King John to drive out the
Europeans may bo counted upon
with a certainty proportional to the
probabilitios of suoeess, Abdullah,
moreover, seems to be ambitious to
extend his authority, and has, as
report declares, sent the famous
Osman Digma along the Abyssinian
frontier collecting troops to establish the Khalifa's power in Kassala,
tho Abyssinians having withdrawn
from tho siege of that place, A
successful movement against Massowah would clear the Soudan as far
nortii as lierber of foreign oocupa
tion, and should the three parties
named unite to that end the chances
an more thnn favorable to the accomplishment of their object What
bearing Stanley's expedition may
have upou the state of affairs in the
Soudan is purely coujeotural. The
position of Emin Bey, a long
distance to the south, cut off by the
intervention of 200,000 of .the best
fighting men in Africa, does not
seem to threaten the native interest
in the upper region; but English
strategy is peouliar, and with British provinces at the extremes it
might be possiblo to sap the commercial strength of the best part of
the African continent. Stanley
might do mush toward harmonizing
nativo differences by exercising his
influence with central tribes, and in
time - servo British interests operating from the north. It needs no
oracle to give assurance of the fact
that England is not.kindly bent toward Italian occupation of any
African point. — Chicago Inter-

If it ia not a declaration of independence it is the next thing to it Newfoundlanders tell the imperial government that they own their fisheries and
they do not propose to pay ths slightest heed to the French or American

that both tlie premier and Sir Ambrose Shea, leader of the opposition,

dangerous character of ths prwaUing
feeling in Newfoundland. Ths press

New Westminster District,
GBNTIVEMRNr:—I have already nn*
noticed myself us a oandidate for the seat
made vacant bv tlie death of our late re*
presentuti ve, and ns no election lias taken-
plnee to All that vacancy, I now offer myself ut this, tho General Election,*
Ar lt Is my Intention to visit and hold
public meetings In every settlement of
the district before election day, I Will
merely In this address refer to tlie different subjects that are vital to our interests
as a district and province, which will be
discussed at length on the public platform,
when I hope all aspirants for the honor
of representing you ln the Commons will
be present and take part In tbe discussion,
of which due notice will be given.
The following are some of the most Important questions that will have my serious consideration:
The Improvement ofthe Navigation of
Fraser Kiver.—-The Mew Westminster
Board of Trade have, with the assistance
of our late representative,, been successful
In obtaining a small appropriation for
this purpose, which has been expended
the past fall; and lt will be the duty of
your representative tOBecurc such annual
grants as will suffice to complete this important work., which will enable ships of
the heaviest draught to navigate the Fraser river at all stages of the tide, and all
seasons of the year.
Hqmattern* Claims.—-With reference to
this matter there has been gross neglect
on the part of the Dominion Government,
and I am of the opinion that those settlers who located their Innd under Instructions from what Is known as Mr.
Trutch'8 pamphlet, should secure the
title thereto free of charge—and the fact
that settlers have been unable to secure
their titles has acted very detrimentally
to the interests of the province generally,
and (If elected) I will be unceasing in my
efibrts to secure the adjustment of every
claim in the district.
Kailway South.—Anothor very Important matter in connection with our district Is railway connection with our neighbors south of the line, several charters
to connect this eity and district with tho
American system of railways have boen
granted by our local legislature, but were
unfortunately disallowed by tho Dominion Government (doubtless through the
Influence of the C. P. It.) The position
hitherto held bythe Dominion House Is
now untenable, and thc monopoly clause
of the C. P. H. will have to be done away
with. Should this be done there ls no
reason why railway construction should
not commence ln the near future, as our
American cousins are ready and willing
to commence work ns sonTi as the way ls
open. I need only say tbat I shall use my
best endeavors to obtain said railway connection and the abolition of the monopoly clause.
Sallway Grievance*.--The C. P. 11. have
Intalned excessive rates for local traffic
In this province and to points as far east
as Winnipeg. This Is not as It should be.
and Is one of the reasons why that great
corporation should be taught that it Is not
the only power in the land, but that It
mtist be made subservient to'the Interests
of the people.
Telegraphs uml Hall ways.- I am of the
opinion that all telegraphs and railways
should be owned uud operated by the
government ln the interest*of the people,
us Is partially the case In Kngland, Germany and elsewhere, and Khali (If elected)
do all I can to bring about this very desirable state of things.
The Nails-—I shall use my best efforts
to nave all settlements on the south side
of the river supplied regularly with their
malls from boulter's Landing by way of
tba Grand Trunk road to Chilliwhack and
any other places not already supplied with
mall accommodation.
' 'The Temperance Question.—Upon this
quostion I feel very warmly and sympa*
thlEe most heartily with all those wlio are
anxious to do away with the evils caused
 ~*     - • shall (If elected)
.      to any meiwira*
_._„„ „..™,r   ~-  uced to advance this
very desirable object.
The Chinese Qacalloa.—With, regard to
to tlila question, I consider It an unmixed.
evil, yet at the same time one of the bard-
problems that this nation has, to deal
with. 1 deem It or vital importance that
our legislatures, both Federal and Provincial, should do their utmost todlscour-
agei this traffic, and ut the same time use
all legal means in their power to get rid of
those Chi tinmen who are already amongst
ua.
Tbo lost Question that I wish to bring before you U thnt of Independence,   I again
reiterate the statement mnde by 1
the papers-

Several of the B, C. papers have taken
up this statement and have said a great
many uncomplimentary things concern*
lag me, such as " being on the fence," "a
Qnt ln disguise,'* and so forth. I therefore
deem It necessary to explain what I mean

tics, and In the United States at the last
Eresidential election a number of tba
est men of both parties voted independently, nml for what tbey considered uie
bast IntercjitN of the country regardless of
party.
A* un Independent I shall endeavor ifl
vote and aot (If elected), lirst, In tho Inter-
oats of my constituents; secondly, In the
Interests of the province, and lastly for
the general good of the Dominion, pledging myself nelthor to Grit nor Ton* but
claiming the right as a free bnm British
Subject to use my Influence and vote on
the side where I consider your lntemti
and the Interests of thc nation Ilo.
I take this opportunity or soliciting the
vote and influence of all,and while I shall
feel vory much honored If you elect me ru
your representative, I trust that lime will
prove that your con ltd en co has not been
misplaced.
I remain. Gentlemen,
Vours respectfully,

To the Electors ofthe Kleetoral District of New Weitminiter.
GENTLEMEN;—-Shortly after the lamented death of onr late Representative,
Mr. Homer, I waa Solicited bj a number
of my friends, to allow mysen to be nominated as a Candidate tor the ftepresenta-
tlon of the Dlstrlet of New Wfitmi niter in
the House of Common) of Canada, The
personal solicitation of frlednds.waiehort-
ly followed by requisitions wnumettrasly
signed, by prominent and Influenlal Electors of the City and District, that I fell lt
to be my duty to place my servlceiat their
disposal. It» not therefore. Gentlemen,
as a self-nominated candidate, that I aale
for your support, bat I do eo In reiponie to
the request of over four hundred of your
number. ' „ .    .
To many of you, Gentlemen, who have
known me for a long time, H is unnecessary for me to say, that I am perfeotly
 —,__. ..__ _„» —J vailed re-
knowledge
„. „, «,, -....jltnnl and
Commercial advantages hu been derived
from actual experience, and will (If eleoted) enable me to place prominently hefore Parliament, the great resources of
this Province, and the meant Decenary
to be employed to aid In their farther
development
It Is Impossible, Gentlemen, ln an address Mich as this to do.more tban allude
to some of the questions of interest and
Importance to you. which as your representative, I would consider it to be my
duty to bring to the notice of Parliament.
I wfll, however, enumerate a few matters
ot great Importance to ui all, in regard to
wbloh lt will be my earnest endeavour to
obtain beneficial legislation.
I will endeavour to have removed from
the mouth of our noble Itlver, every Impediment to Its free navigation, and nave
necessary lighthouses erected.
I will endeavor, to secure to uttlen and
squatters an Immediate title to.their
lands. Thlsl consider to be a matter not
only of justice, but aleo of expediency.
Heretofore great injustice has been done
to a valuable and deserving class of our
population, to whom, had Justice been
done and facilities afforded for acquiring
familiar with the great and varied re-
sources of thia Province. Hy knowledge
of Its Mining, Fishing, Agricultural and
homesteads, the mulls of their industry
would, ere this, have done much to devel
op the agricultural capabilities of this line
dlstilct ,   •
I am aware, Gentlemen, that the number of representatives to which each province of the Dominion Is entitled le based
upon population, yet I believe that, owing
percentage, according to population, than
any nf tho other provinces} and also to
the fact thnt large centres of population
are rapidly being formed ln this district—
that It Is entitled to a larger representa
tion' In the parliament of the Dominion,
nnd which ns a matter of Justice 1 will endeavor to obtain.
I will ulso endeavour to obtain for the
residents of thin District better postal
facilities, to which they ure justly entitled.
I will use my best cftorlH to secure equitable rates on all railway and telegraph
lines, and to have thesame fixed by law. ;
Tho Interests of British Columbia demand that every Impediment ln the way
of constructing railways to our Southern
boundnry and oilier portions of this dlstrlet be removed. to aid In the development of our resources, I will endeavor to
have this accomplished, and aleo to obtain aid for the const ruction of canals and
the improvement of navigable stream*.
I will alao consider lt my duty to render
all possible aid to any legislation which
seeks to simplify and render leas cosily
the administration uf Justice, especially
as between individuals und corporations.
My 'political platform Is, In the first
place, the Interest of British Columbia,
which I believe can be beat served by my
giving nn Independent support to the
present government, which haa not In tho
past been unmindful or tbe Interests
of Britiah Columbia, and to whom we
are indebted nir th* early completion
of the railway, which baa brought
us Into communication wllh the Eastern
Provinces and Europe, and through
the agency of which, we will In the
near future, be plaoed ln dlreot communication with Australia,China, Japan,
and the Great Eastern Empire, which
must prove to be of Incalculable value to
thia province, and to this district In 'particular.
In conclusion, gentlemen, I have only
to say, that I am prompted by a sincere
desire to benefit thia district and to aid In
promoting Its varied Interests, and I ask
four support only upon these grounds.
tis my intention to see as many of you
previous to the election aa time and clr-
eumetanoeawllladmltofln the meantime.
I remain. Gentlemen,
Yours very truly,

OIL ON TROUBLED WATERS.
Beporta or Decent Experiment, of lea
Captain. In Heavy Storm..
_! The hydrogjrapnio offloo of the Navy
Department, in view of the evidence of
the value of oil to lessen the dangerous
effect of heavy sons, and desirous of disseminating tacts as widely as possible, I
recently prepared a circular to pe issued
to commanders of deep-sea vessels sailing front this and other ports, requesting experiments with oil when the
opportunity occurs, and reports of the
result to one of the branch offices of the
Hydrographio Office.
Tho use of mineral oil is not recommended, while tho importance of oany-
ing a supply of animal or vegetable oil
for tin in emergencies, the ohief of tho
bureau Bays, cannot be overestimated.
Among the reports Died ih one from
Captain Avery of the schooner Jennie
A. Ohoney, in connection with a severe
hurricane off the Florida coast He
says he used oil with very satisfactory
results, and adds:
"After the sails were blown away,
finding it necessary to do something to
save the ship ana the crew, I took a
small canvas bag and turned about five
gallons of linseed oil into it, and hung
it over the starboard quarter. The wash
of the sea caused a little of the oil to
leak out and smooth the surface, so that
for two hours no water broke aboard. I
consider that the oil used during the
last and heaviest part of the hurricane
saved the vessel and the crew."
Captain Frost, of the ship St. David,
spooking of his experience in a tempest
on September 23d, says:
"I got up throe canvas bags, oakum
and somo old fish oil that had been in
the.chip for a long time; oakum balls
wore placed in the bags after being saturated with oil till each bog was half
full; thon one and a half gallons of oil
wore poured into the bag on top oi the
onkum, and the bags sewed up, pricked
and lashed one in eaeh weather channel, so that whon the ship rolled to the
windward they wonld go nnder water.
In this way the oil dripped out gradual! v and spread over to windward as tho
ship drifted to leeward. After this ho
wave broke ovor." .
Captain Dawson, of the ship Halloween, used paraffins and colza to smooth
the soa down, and asserts that he thus
saved his vessel.—[N. Y. Commercial
Advertiser.
A Mink Farm la the West,
" There are tome mighty green men
in the world," said the passenger from
the West, "an' I struck one of 'cm a
woek or two ago. HI hadn't Iwouldu't
be here now.     '
'' Last spring I went out into western
Nclniiska an' hoinesteaded a quarter
tactic*-. I hadn't seen the land, bnt took
it, snii-Kwin' it was all right. But whon
I £ot there I found it already inhabited.
About 150 acres of the 160 were covered
with a prairie-dog town,
" Woll, I concluded to settle down
and seo whatlcould do, an'Iam mighty
gl:ul now tbat I did. About two weeks
ago I was up to the railroad station,
trying to get trusted for soma beoon and
flour an' terbaoker, an' feelin' right
smart discouraged. I was out of money
an' grub, an' I couldn't soe my way out
of it but to est prairie dogs, an' they're
mighty hard to catch,
"But that day was tha turning point
in my luck.
"While I was at the station an Englishman got off the oars, an' said as how
ho was out West lookin' for a place to
make an investment. Said he'd heard
o' tha fur business, an' wanted to know
if he waa out in the fur oountry yet.
• •« 'Fur,'says 1, 'there hain't no'—an'
jnst then an' idea struck me, an' I
changed my tune. 'Furs,' says I, 'there
hain't no better for country than this
on'artb. Justoomeouttomyplacetill
I show yon my fur farm.'
"And he went out with mo, and I
showe I him the prairie-dog town, an',
as lnok would have it, it was a bright,
sunny day, an'the dogs was out soootin'
around by the hundreds.
" 'Talkin' about furs,' says I, 'what
d'ye think of that* I've been six veer
growin'those mink, an' hain't sold a
hide. It's all natural increase. Oness
they's -bout 7,000 of 'em now, an' thev
double every year. How many will
thore be in ten years?'
" Yon ought to tea thtt Englishman's
eyea open aa he took ont hb penoil an'
figured it np. He made it 7,168,000
mink.
"' Well,' says I, ' call it 6,000,000 to
be on the safe side. It won't eost$lto
keep 'em, either, an", if they're worth a
oent, they're worth llapieoe. There's
millions in it.'
"Then we got right down to business,
ah'in leu than in hourlhad told ont
for (7,000 cash, an' tha next day I paid
{320 for the homestead at the land offloe,
got my patent, transferred it to him,
and took, the first tnin for the East.
Step into the buffer with me,_partner,
and take a drink. "—[Chicago Herald.

He never shears his sheep, bnt allows
the wool to grow on-their backs until it
drags on the ground. People traveled
for miles last summer to seo hii flock
of shoep that Md not been thorn for six
years. From a distance the sheep
looked like hayihooks in the field. The
wool was 18 inches in length.
His geese are never picked, nor doea
he over brandish that woeful weapon,
tho razor, on his own face, which it hidden in a Kip Van Winkle riot bf beard.
"God puts the wool on tha backs of
the sheep, and it is sinful to dip it,"
says the Buckeye philosopher, with

The Track.—A dispatch from the

large stumps. A gang of men operating on tho Vancouver extension was

shovels.
Bursted.—A large water pipe burst

the pipe at closo quarters. When

Navigation.—Thero is nothing in
the river between this city and the
straits to interrupt navigation. The
atr. Adelaide arrived from tlie gulf today, and the tug Iris went out. Mr.
J. C. Armstrong returned yesterday
from Harrison Lako. He reports very
little ice between this place and the
Mission, and thinks there will be no
more trouble from ico this winter.
The Weekly Columbian.—The
publisben are desirous to make all
subscriptions for the Weekly Columbia* end with the year. This will
enable subscribers to know precisely
when their subscriptions expire, and
it will greatly simplify the book-keeping. Persons sending new subscriptions during tho year wiil, therefore,
be good enough to send, as far as possible, the amount thst will pay to the
end of the current year. The psper
costs, as nearly as may be, 17 cts. a
month, and the sum required to pay
to the end of tho year may be easily
calculated. If it is not possible to obtain the correct amount, send $2, and
the change will be returned in stamps
from this office.

The R*-Uiiiox.—There was i Urge
•ttendance of ladies and gentlemen at
the reception given by the W.C.T.U.
to the members of the Y.M.C.A. in
the Skating Rink last nipht. After
ample justice had been done to the
excellent refreshments, Mr. Turpin,
secretary of the association, took the
chair, and announced the musical pro-
?;ramme, which was carried out ss
ollows: Opening chorus; duet by
Mias Sutherland and Miss DeBeck;
piano solo by Miss Hill; duet by Mr.
H. L. DeBeck and Mrs. Major; solo
by Miss Sutherland; quartette by Mrs.
Lund, Mrs. Major, Mr. H. L. DeBeck
and Mr. T. R. Pearson; closing chorus.
With tho exception of tho first chorus,
all the pieces were well rendered/and
received with hearty applause. A
considerable part of the evening was
devoted to social conversation, and it
wu tpent mott pleasantly. The Y.M.
C.A. may fairly be cougratuUted upon the entire success of its first publio
entertainment, a tuoces. for which t
is largely indebted to the members of
the W.O.T.U.
