-current Events and Oplnlons.
Tlie unnexatioii of Burinuli to the
Indian Empiro will be a hnppy
event for tho inhabitants of tho
former country, who have boen
groaning for years under the intolerable tyranny of King Theliaw.
History does not record a creator
monster than he, if, indeed, it records his equal. He is a Nero
without the graces which relieve
the blackness of Noro's character.
He is the personification of cruelty.
If the stories of his excesses aro to
bo believed, he hns been in a state
of intoxication almost continuously
for soverul yours. In that time lie
hns caused almost all the nobles in
his kingdom to be executed. He
has also extended the same mark of
attachment to such of his own relatives as were not fortunate enough
to escape to India. His story is
like a page torn from the history of
Media or Assyria, and surreptitiously inserted in tlie annals of the
nineteenth century. The removal
from the earth of such a horrible
anachronism as Thebaw would be a
blessing to Ins miserable subjects.
It is doubtful whether Europe, and
especially Russia, will look with
equanimity upon such an extension
of British territory as the annexation of Burmah would mean. It
would thrust the English power,
like a wedge, further into Asia; it
would bring the English face to
face with tho French in Anam,
and would in a great measure restore brilliancy to British prestige
among the peoples of Asia, which
has been bnilly tarnished within the
past year. lt is not likely that
any nation would interfere forcibly
in support of such a wretch as
Thebaw, but it is not improbable
that Russia would answer a British
advance in Burmah by n further
advanco into Afghanistan.—Seattle

VOLUME 28
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, OCTOBER 28, 1885.
NUMBER 35
A very curious and signilicant
document appeansd in tlie London
Jlcconl of tho llth September. It
is   a   list   of nil   Uu* Liuullilittoc fg-r
parliamentary honors in the coming
contest throught the wholo of Great
Britain. This list has been compiled with great cure. Much labor
has been expended upon it, and
everything has been done to make it
as far as possible accurate. Of
course it is not entirely so. This
was scarcely to be expocted; and
accordingly letters are appearing in
the London Times and other papers
from those who think they have
been misrepresented, in which they
seek to put themselves right
with the public. Iu a general way,
howover, it is understood that tho
list is an accurate ono, and that
though, of course, the liecord is
strongly anti-disestnblishmeut, tho
very best has been done to get at
the actual facts. What then are
thoso facts? So far as ascertained
thero aro 1.061 candidates for election in England, Scotland, and
Wales, Of these, 403 Liberal candidates are iu favor of disestablishment, and only 37 ugninst, whilo 33
refuse to give nny information.
About the views of the remaining
106 Liberals, no information had
been received, though tho likelihood
wns that tho majority of them
would rather favor tlio disestablishment viow, Of tlioso declared in
favor of disestablishment, 3 would
havo it in Wules only, 14 in Scotland only, and 10 in Scotland and
Wales only. There are 482 Conservatives before the electors, and
thoy are to a man against disestablishment. This shows an amount
of progress in the direction of disestablishment which even the most
sanguine could not a few years ago
have anticipated, It also fully confirms thc statement mado by Mr.
Gladstone in his recent manifesto,
that the question is surety moving
forward into the region of practical
politics, and will, at no very distant
day, have to be met and answered.
Indeed it is already iu the region of
practical politics, and though it may
bo delayed for a few years is as certain as anything in the future can
be, to como to tbo front before long
and to continue thero till it is finally
and satisfactorily disposed of,—
Globe.      ■
The Irish question under the
leadership of Parnell moves steadily forward. Its real object becomes plainor, nnd circumstances
undoubtedly favor its accomplish-
ment. Mr. Parnell's fundamental
conviction throughout tho controversy has obviously beeu that England would grant nothing to Ireland
except upon compulsion, that no
English party is really friendly to
Ireland, and thnt, according to tho
occasion and its power in parliament, Ireland must play ofl* one
party   against the other-  nnd   by
every  kind of  parliamentary obstruction force redress for Ireland.
At   the  dinner to Lord Spencer,
John   Bright said that the Irish
leaders   had   shown   "a boundless
sympathy for criminals and murderers,    from   their   lips no one
sentence of emphatic condemnation
for them has passed.    There has
been no word of pity for their victims."   The sting of this assertion
lies in the undoubted fact that if
Mr. Parnell had firmly denounced
and   prohibited   the   crimes, they
would have stopped.   If he did not
take   this  course because of  the
feeling that they were provoked,
his judgment was at fault.   If he
did not take it because he feared to
lose control, he buys hiB leadership
at too high a price.   The present
important events in the Irish discussion are the recent address of
Mr. Gladstone, representing the conservative Liberals, and the speech
of Mr. Chamberlain, representing
the radical Liberals, and the Wick-
low speech of Mr. -Parnell.    Mr.
Gladstone admits that there must
he un enlargement of local government, but he holds that the supremacy of the crown, the unity of the
empire, and tho authority of parliament   to   preserve   that  unity,
must be maintained at all hazards,
Mr, Chamberlain declares that Parnell's policy is in many respects a
good one, but that separation is a
calamity to which England will not
submit.   Mr. Parnell, in his Wick-
low speech, assumes that further
"forced  legislative   connection"  is
practically abandoned by England,
but that two conditions are held in
England .to  be, essential   to the
change: first, that there shall be no
separation, and second, that Ireland
shall not be allowed to protect her
own, manufactures.      To this he
answers that thc chief wrong to
Ireland  has beeu the destruction
of her manufactures; and if justice
is to be done, an Irish parliament
must be free to foster the few industries in which Ireland may excel.
In regard to separation, he advises
England to trust Ireland altogether
or not to trust her at all.     Since
eighty-five years of parliamentary
connection have produced the in-
tensest disloyalty, may it not he
supposed that with thc removal of
the cause the effect mny also disappear!    In Australia und Canada
disaffection has disappeared.    Why
should not a similar result follow
in Ireland?   This speech, with tho
address of Mr. Gladstone and the
Bppnnli nf Mr. Clmmtieriain, shows
how near the Irish question is to a
tentative solution.    How complete
is the ascendency of Mr.  Parnell
nppears in the fact that his candidates for parliament were'nominated
without a dissenting voico by the
convention,   and   each   candidate
signed a pledge that if elected he
would sit, act, and vote with the
Irish parliamentary party, and if
the majority of that party should
at any time decide that he had not
fulfilled   the   pledge he would instantly resign.   In the convention
a third of  the one hundred nnd
twenty delegates were priests, and
they cheered most loudly tlio selection of thc candidates.   The London Times says that the govornment
of Ireland has passed or is passing
out of the hands of the  English
ministers, and it seems to tell the
truth.    At this distance the situation appears to be one which requires that the question be settled
either by the reduction of Ireland
to a province or tho concession of
nn Irish parliament with powers bo
large as to be practically equivalent
to independence.    The radical difficulty with Mr. Parnell's plan is tlie
absence of that trust upon the part
of England  which is iudispensablo
to the arrangement, and it is not at
all  improbable   that   Mr.   Parnell
himseif would seo with profound
apprehension a substantial separation.   But tho situation is exceedingly interesting.—Harper's Weekly.

For somo time the commissioners appointed by the Ontario govornmont 1ms been at work laying
out and appraising tlie property
lying on tho Canadian side of Niagara Fulls with a view to the establishment of the long-looked-for
public park. It is snid that the
Canadian park will be wore extensive nnd complete than the one opposite, if the views of the commissioners are carried into effect.
It is to be hoped no difficulty may
crop up to prevent the accomplishment of the very desirable scheme
upon whicli the commissioners nre
engaged.
Worse ami Worse!
Tt was not our intention furthor
to pursue lhe question of military
defences at present. Time will toll
whethor our defences are to be posted in accordance with tlie recommendations of military men, for
military purposes, or are to bo used
as political patronage and placed
where thoy may be expected to do
tlie greatest amount.of political
good. So far, not one genuine military authority has beeu quoted in
favor of Victoria or Esquimalt—
they have invariable favored the
inlet. Onr readers must know that
a newspaper discussion of the question will not be likely to influence
those in whose hands the location
of the defences is but since the
Colonist returns to the matter with
assertions and inferences tliat are
misleading, we must be excused for
making a fow further remarks. We
do not propose to discuss the question of defence, but simply to correct the opening and closing sentences of our cotemporary's last
article on 0 Battery. Our cotemporary begins by stating that Thk
Columbian is guilty of falsehood
because it wade the Colonist to say
that if Victorin and Esquimalt were
protected "these were the only
places thnt should be protected in
the provinco." Now, our cotemporary certainly did assert thnt if
those two. places were protected,
there would be no need for further
protection on the mainland. And
if the protection was not needed, it
should not lie given, for it would in
tlmt   cuso   ho   Bliperfluouo.       Kill.
tho Colonist wust, therefore, have
advocated something that should
not bo done, or it did not advocate
protection for the mainland. Our
cotemporary may choose whichever
horn of this dilemma he thinks
best. In concluding our cotemporary snys: "We would remind
the Columbian that the civic address
presented at the royal city was
framed to draw his excellency out
on the Battery 0 question." To
this wo reply that the civic address
presented at tliis city did not even
mention Battery C, or anything
that could possibly be construed by
any sane person to refer in tho remotest degree to that battery. Our
cotemporary shows himself to be
utterly ignorant of tho subject upon
which he undertakes to instruct his
readers.
The Loan By-law.
In another column this morninj
will be found a copy of the loan
by-law to which reference was made
somo time ngo in this paper.   It
need not be said that the purpose
of this loan is to find means to se
secure the immediate construction
of a railway to connect this city
with the iiiuiii line of the C. P, R.
I n a letter addressed to Mr. J. A,
H. Homer, dated the 23rd of July
last, Mr. Van Home says:
D--.-.U Sui.— Itcplying to yonr letter on
the aubject of the New Westminster
branch, tt is our intention to send engi*
m-cis tu locate the branch as soon as they
•Mil lie spared from the work between
.Savona's Ferry and Little Shuswnp Lake,
which, from present appearances, will be
within from three to four weeks, As
Boon ai the surveys nre made, n plan
will be submitted to the city authorities
of New Westminstor covering our requirements as to depot grounds nud
right of way, and theso liuing satisfactory, and if tlie §37,500 to be contributed
by the city in rash and the similar
amount to be contributed by tlie provincial government be in n position te satisfy
our solicitors, we intend to commence
tho work of construction without unnecessary delay, and to complete it at ne
early a date as practicable; but we cannot agree to any specific date for the
completion of the work, because it is as
yet uncertain when tho government lino
will be turned ovor to tho company, und
the compnny is not iu a position to commence work on the Coal Hnrbor extension aud New Westminster branch until
they are in possession of the government
Pit,—Youn truly,
W. C VanHoune, Vlco-Prcs,
Since this letter was written ttio
engineers spoken of havo made a thorough survey of the brnncli line, and
the details of the plan for submission are nearly completed. Thn
gap in the main line, also, lias been
closed, or will be closed in a few
days, and everything indicates the
probability that tlie syndicate will
1* prepared very soon to go on
with the line to this city at an early
date. We publish Mr. Van Home's
letter because it sets out distinctly
one of the conditions upon which
tlie construction of the branch will
be undertaken. « The bonus from
the government, and the bonus and
other considerations promised by
the city, must first be so secured
as to satisfy the syndicate's solicitors, ft is for the purpose of complying with this condition that the
loan is now proposed. Tho government hns intimated that its half of
the bonus will bo forthcoming when
required: the city wust place itself
in a position that will enable it to
give a similar assurance. It bus
already been pointed out in these
columns that the loan now asked
is intended to be merely temporary.
It is asked simply in order to meet
the circumstances above mentioned,
and to prevent tho possibility of
delay in construction arising out of
unreadiness on tiie part of tlio corporation. If it is deemed best to
sell any pnrt of tho public squar
before the completion of the rond,
tlie money received from the sale
would bo applied to the railway
bonus of course, and the loan would
bo proportionately reduced. Ifc
way even happen that sufficient
money will be obtained by tliis
weans to obviate the necessity of
any loan. In that case no debenture? will be issued. But where
promptness is of such supreme importance the council could not be
justified in taking any risks. It
was intended to make,the loan $48,-
000, but upon examination it was
found that so large a loan could not
be legally taken upon the assessment
of 1883-84, which had to be adopted as tho basis of calculation. If
the sum now asked should fall short
of requirements, it can lie supplemented next year, if necessary, by
another small loan. But we do not
anticipate such a necessity. .We
are sure it is not necessary for us
to commend the by-law to the favorable consideration of every citizen
who desires tbe prosperity and development of this city.
0. V, It. Route and Terminus.
The Victoria Times of Friday
publishes an interesting letter relating to prospects at the 0. P. K.
terminus. The letter is dated at
Ottawa on the 15th inst, and from
it we make tbo following extracts:
"The company havo determined to
extend the main line by way of
Port Moody along the south sliore
of Burrard Inlet to Coal Hnrbor,
thus giving the company control of
the entire foreshore for over U
wiles, constituting Burrard Inlet
beyond doubt the finest harbor in
the world. Por Borne weeks the
company's officials wero m this city
obtaining information and data lie-
fore cowing to this conclusion. Instructions have beeu issued to its
engineers in your province to proceed at once with the survey and
location of the line along the beach
of tlie inlet so soon ns tho New
"Westminster line has been disposed
of, wliich will be oarlyiiiext week.
Being favored with a glimpse of the
plans and specifications of the terminal buildings and other facilities
at Vancouver for the company's
business, I enn assert that there is a
GHUAT SUBPBISB IS STOitl"
for British Columbians, who have
supposed theso would he of a trifling
character. Although not of arohi ■
toctural beauty they nre large, cow
wodious, and very substantial, intended to be ample for the requirements of tho company for some
years to come, and likewise capable
of extension without detracting
from their symmetrical effect. The
wharves are to be of modorn design and intended to aecommodali
an extensive fleet of the largest
ocean - going vessels, Mr. V
Horne, the company's energetic general manager is waiting the junction
of thc rails in order to proceed to
Vancouver to wake final arrangements for tlio locating of the several buildings and choosing the site
for tho docks and wharves. I. am
informed thnt he is confident that
he will accomplish the journey from
Montreal to Vancouver during the
first week of next month, as according to his last advices from the Sel
kirks di\,*siou there were only
twenty-one wiles to finish. Mr. L.
A. Hamilton, assistant land commissioner, has been instructed to
proceed with all expedition with the
preparation of the block plan of
the Oity of Vancouver, in ordur to
have ifc complete for the inspection
of the general manager ou liis arrival there, and to receive his approval ero it is registered.
LOCATION OF C I1ATTKIIY.
On excellent authority I have it
that the govornment has decided to
locate C Battery on the Coal Harbor peninsula. The military officials have recommended tbe selection of this locality and it will unquestionably bo carried out. Tiio
change will creato dissatisfaction,
but as no bill was introduced carrying into effect tho items embraced
in tho estimates, it is held by those
in authority that tbe change from
Victoria to the mainland terminus
is not only permissible but likewise
justifiable, in consequence of the
immensely valuable proporty that
will require protection at the tor*
minus. It is understood that the
government will erect buildings at
the terminus of a character in keeping with those of the syndicate and
likewise oxpend a considerable sum
in harbor improvements, all of which
will be deemed necessary in the
publio interest

since lhat time there haa beeu no

thnt this intrepid explorer of Mongolia
has failed again to penetrate into Tibet
over the Kerin Mountains, in consequence of tlio strenuous opposition uf
the Chinese. The latter have evidently taken fright at the scientific incur-
siiuiH of the gallant Kiutaian Colonel
and his largo military retinue; and in
ordor to stop tho further progress of
the Russian troups they barricaded nll
the available pathways with stones and
destroyed all the bridges.
It will be remembered that Col.

Loxnox, Oct. 24.—It is now evident
thut tlie parliamentary campaign will
not pilau off without serious rioting in
some quarters, as party feoling, which
already runs high, daily grows more bitter. The Marquis of Lorno, Liberal
candidate for Hampstead, went to Brentford town, seven miles west of London,
to deliver a campaign speech, and while
addressing the electors, was assaulted by
n mob with rotten eggs, ami some of
them gaining the platform smashed the
hat over his head. The supporters of
the marquis rushed to his rescue and a
fight ensued. The noble lord now became so thoroughly frightened that he
hastily departed from the scene and ran
th-ough the streets in a drenching rain
towr-ds a way station and immediately
departed for London, Meanwhile the
fight continued, the supporters of the
marquis being roughly handled, and be-
coming discouraged at their desertion by
their champion they retired, leaving
■tiie-V contestants masters of the field,
'lhey then seized the platform and passed
rcsohiti us condemning the policy of the
Liberals, Whon the Queen's son-in-law
made his appearance as thc Liberal candidate for Hampstead it occasioned considerable surprise, and when he put forward in his address advanced radical
opinions, tho surprise was greatly increased. He adopted Chamberlain's
programme of free education, and advocated immediate disestablish ment in
Scotland, He championed the principles
of tlio free land league, and the withdrawal of encouragement of the subdivision of land; s.iggeatcd that the sale
cf large estates, en Mae, should be subject to heavy taxation, while sales of
land to he divided into small lots should
b« left duty free. As to the house of
lords, he hardly went so far as tho Hamp-
stend radicals desired, being of opinion
tl at that venerable institution might be
amended by tho infusion of ejected
members. He favored the extension of
local self-government to Ireland.

European News Budget.
London, Oot. 24.—Addressing a
meeting of the delegations to-day, the
Emperor Francis Joseph said: "The
foreign relations of Austria uro of a,
most friendly nature, and the recent
meeting of the emporors at Kremsier
clearly indicated to the unprejudiced
that tho active and trustful relations
of Russia, Germany nnd Austria still
continue, which is a very important
faot at this juncture for the peace of
Europe. The powers who join ub will
maintain the legal status of the Balkan
state, guaranteed by the treaties of
Berlin and San Stefano- as a basis for
securing peace in future. The unanimity of the powers on this point is
nu important guarantee of thu success
of a peaceful solution of the Ruutuelinn
question, Tho signors of tho treaty of
Berlin seek to restore tho statu quo
which was so unexpectedly violated by
THE ROUMELIAN ltlSINO,
endangering thc peace und welfare of
the people of thu whole Balkan territory. Europe evinced her respect for
the treaties of San Stefano nnd Berlin
by tho confidence wherewith she gave
the Balkan states an independent political existence, Austria's first care
is to maintain pence among the nations
and to protect tbo interest of her monarchy. Bosnia and Herzegovinia are
making steady progress iu nu industrial and economical sense, nnd are able
to pay their own administration." If
the emperor's speech means anything
it means that Germany, Russia and
Austria are making united determination to secure the deposition of Prince
Alexander and complete the restoration
of that state which existed iu Balkan
affairs before tho exaltation of the
prince. Dispatches received this evening from Constantinople indicate that
England will take a decided stand
against the position announced for
Germany, Austria and Russia by the
Emperor Francis Joseph's private utterance. All tho powers have accepted
the porte's invitation to attend the
conference at the Turkish capital ou
tho Balkan question, and the representatives are all upon the ground.
It is to-night stated, unequivocally,
that the representative of England has
been instructed by his govornmont to
make a motion in tho conference to
maintain the union of Bulgaria nud
Ruumelin effected under Prince Alexander; and it is further declared that
the representatives of France and Italy
havo beon instructod by their govornmont i to support England's motion.
If this motion bo made the conference
will be at once divided—Germany,
Austria and Russia arrayed against
England, France and Italy. It is not
worth while to conjecture how Turkey,
the power chiefly concerned will stand.
Her attitude will be decided by force,
and it is strongly suspected that England possesses such relations with the
porte as to compel it ultimately to side
against Russia, aud if that is accomplished the difficulty would seem to he
Bottled. The way tliu matter stands
at present ia that in n conference called
by Turkey to take steps to settle tho
powerful revolution agiiiBt her authority,
TIIK THUKK tIMI'lltKS (IV KfKol'K
aro arrayed against England, France
and Italy; thu former triumvirate insisting on a formal return of tho rebellious states to their former allegiance
to the porte ns a preliminary basis for
thu discussion and settlement of the
question, nud tho latter triumvirate
insisting on the acceptance of the accomplished fact. To say the least of
it, the situation ia one fnll of dangor-
ous elements. In the meantime alliiin

 QiVewly   j.,. Are You a Christian?
It is an old story, and wo havo often
told it; nevertheless, it will bear repeating. We were holding a series of
evangelistic meetings in the city of
Providonee. The place or service was
iu the Music Hall. A largo number
were staying to tho after-meeting for
inquiry and conversation. Passing
down the middle aisle, speaking to
the poople ono by une concerning their
souls, we noticed a finely dressed,
handsome woman sitting on an end
seat, a few steps in advance of tho
position we hnd reached on our way
down the length of the hnll. As wo
approached her wo noticed that she
drew horself up and put on a haughty
nir as though sho would rebuff ".s before we ventured to speak to her. Nevertheless wo approached 'her, and in
courteous manner nnd address asked
her the usual question,
"Madam, are you a christian '•?"
"No, sir," was tho instant response,
"I nin an Episcopalian."
Now, the good lady did not mean to
say that whicli her reply implied. Sho
only mouut to say that being an Episcopalian, and unused to thc methods
of an inquiry room, sho did not esteem
herself a proper subject for our inquiry. But the suggestion the response
raised in our minds was that there are
many persons in tho Church of Christ
who aro not prepared to answer
promptly and joyously: "I am a Christian, who can, nevertheless, snap out
tho fact that thoy aro Methodists,
Baptists, Presbyterians, Congregation-
ulists or Episcopalians. Apropos of
this, we once had a man in tlie church
of which we were years ago tho pastor,
who, in all other things but spiritual
lifo, was an exceptionally good man.
If there was money to bo raised he
was the lirst to givo; if thero was any
enterprise on hand for tho advancement of tho church or tho denomination, ho was foremost in his interest to
help; but when spiritual matters wero
under discussion he was always silent.
He came to tho Sabbath service, but
nover to tho prayer-meeting, We
wore urging him one day to como to
prayer-meeting, pressing upon hiin his
duty as a Christian man to take a more
decided stand in spiritual matters.
. His prompt and frank reply was:
"Pastor, I agree with you, that
every Christian man ought to attend,
to the spiritual interests of the church
and cf his own life; but tho truth is,
while I am absolutely sure that I am a
Baptist, I have always been in doubt
as to whether I am a Christian; indeed, I don't think I am."
We are well assured that there are
many Congregationalists and Presby-
tcriuus, as well as Baptists aud Episcopalians, of this type.—Words and Weapons. 	
The Origin or "O.K.-"
In the lnngungo of the Choctaw Indians, one of the most frequently recurring expressions is the emphatic
oke, with whicli nn aflirinatioii or denial is concluded. This oke (pronounced with strong accent ou the last syllable) is oue uf the substitutes for thu
copulative verb to bo, which is wanting iu Choctaw. Oke, as pronounced
in Choctaw, has exactly the same
sound as the alphabetic pronunciation
of the letters 0. K. in English.
Tho meaning of the expression, as
nearly as it can bo conveyed in English, is: "That is true;" ''That is all
bo." A few examplos, out of many
that mii>ht be cited, will illustrate thia.
"Tho Ohoctaw Indian is a good follow"
is expressed thus: Battak api Iinina
Chahta achukniiih oke, in which hattak
api humu moans "Indian" (literally,
mun • body - rod), achukmnh moans
"good," and oke is the copulative expression, "it is so." In the llev, Cyrus
Byingteu's Chuctaw New Testament
tho first sentence of Matt. 5:13; "Ye
arc the salt of the earth," is: Gnkui in
huppi huchchia hoke; literally: "The
earth its salt ye; that is so."
To General Andrew Jackson is attributed the introduction of the Choctaw
word into our Antflu-American speech.
Before the war of 1812, in voyages up
and down the Mississippi and in trading expeditions overland from Nashville, Tenn., to Natchez, Miss.,
through tlie Choctaw nation, ho was
brought into frequent communication
with the Choctuws.
General Jackson, as ovorybody is
aware, was prone to the use of down
right aud energetic methods of assertion. Hearing this emphatic oke so
frequently uttered by tho Choctaw
people, he learned the moaning convoyed by it to the Choctaw mind and
appropriated it, out of haud, to his
own purposes. From him it passed
over to tho multitude. This account
of the origin of 0. K. has been current
in tho South for many years. If not
true, it is, to say tho least, ben trovato.
No one who has ever read nn autograph lotter of General Jackson's will
easily eredit tho story that he was in
thc habit, when ho wns President of
the United States, of indorsing, in
kultem blute, applications for office,
with the letters (J. K., under the belief that those were the proper initials
for "all correct." Jackson was no
scholar, but he was unt so grossly ignorant of English orthography as to
fall into a blunder of that sort. Ho
may have indorsed documents with the
letters 0, K. ns a jocular symbol of
his favorite Choctaw expression. Tho
story that those letters woro seriously
intended by him as au abbreviation of
"oil knrrect" was probably, ns Mr.
George Bancroft suggests, a posteriori
invention of the enemy—to wit, the
Whigs—during the hot political con-
'tests in tho days of the roaring '40's.
That tho abbreviation 0. K. was
coined by Jackson himself and used
by him long years beforo it passed into
current slang, finds curious confirmation in an extract from the old court
records of Sumner county, Tenn.,
quoted by Parton in his "Life of Jack-
snn," vol. I, p. 130:
"Ootober 0, 1700. Andrew Jack-
8011, Esq., proved a bill of snlo from
Hugh MoGary to Gnspor Manskor, for
a negro woman, which was 0, K."
["A common Western mistake," adds
Mr. Parton, "for 0. It., which means
Ordered Recorded, Hence, perhaps,
tlio saying 0. K."l
Is it not moro likely that tho 0. K.
of tins entry was suggested by Jackson
himself, as a brief way of Baying, after
thn Ghootaw fashion, that tho claim
had been legally mado mit? Ameriran

Emperor mid Prisoner.
In tho gray of an early morning,
during the reign of good Joseph XI, of
Austria, a Btrange scene occurred iu
one of the streets of the old city of
Presburg. Wo can forgivo history
much of its dry detail and stiff formality when it also -records for us heart-
touching incidents of real life liko this
that we havo hero to tell.
The nearly silent stroet, flanked by
its two rows of tnll houses, most of tlio
blinds and shutters still closing tho
windows at that early hour, was being
swept by a gang ef convicts, brought
each morning through tho prison gates
for the purposo. In the lino of prisoners was an old man whoso hair und
heard wero white ns silver, and whose
ugly uniform did not wholly hide a
certain statelinoBs of bearing which he,
however, did not allow tu hinder his
work. But in spito of his prepossessing luck and manner it was to bo noticed that only he, of till his wretched
companions, dragged at his leg a ball
and chain. Yot it seemed impossible
to beliovo that he excelled in crimo
the repulsive looking wretches about
him.
As tho work of cleaning tho streets
progressed tlio thoroughfare, in spite
of the early hour, came nt last to have
onu passer-by. A tall, elderly man,
very plainly dressed, but weaving a
kind of uniform, advanced iiIoul* one
of the pavements, and as he looked at
tho gang of sweepers his oyo quickly
singled out the old prisoner. This observer seemed soon to notice that
although the white Inured, aged man,
in spito of having the ball and chain to
drag, managed, by sheer exertion, to
keop up with tho others in his work,
the overseer was nearly nlwuys shouting at him in anger and finding fault
with him without causo. Tho spectator Btopped into tlio road to tho old
man's side.
"What," ho asked, "is your crimo,
that you are treated in this way ?"
The old prisoner, at the sound of a
voico which had in it a tone of pity,
looked up and stood still, resting his
broom upon the atones. It was a terrible story of persecution and cruelty
he had to veil. He belonged to a distant province, and his position there
answered to the olass iu England called "yoeman;" ho having been owner
of a small propertyeof his own. But,
most unfortunately for him, the farm
lay on tho skirt of the great estate of
 , -md this nobleman had fixed
an envious eye upon its scanty Holds,
as King Ahab did long beforo on Nu-
both's vineyard. Tho owner prizing
the spot as hnving been the homo of
his forefathers, rofusod to sell it to tho
count. From that hour began his
persecution. Ouo ■ legul process was
served on him after another, costs
being run up at every stage. In the
end he was fairly ruined, and was
forced to agree to sell the farm to tho
rapneious nobleman, but he bargained
that ho was to remain in the houso for
one year moro. One day soon after
tliis he was standing at his gate, deep
in grief at the prospect, A wounded
hair unexpectedly ran by, and, without
thinking what ho was doing, ho instinctively raised his stick and put the
poor creature out of its pain. At tlint
moment tho count's servant came up
and arrested him on the spot, and although he had not laid a linger upon
the haro ho was taken to prison. Thero
ho lay for six mouths before he was
tried, nnd when he was placed beforo
the judge tho influence of the wicked
count secured his being sentenced to
to two years' imprisonment. In the
meantime his wife and children were
turned out of the-houso nnd plunged
iuto uttor poverty.
"That, sir,' concluded the ngud
prisoner, "is my history."
"But can this persecution be possible?" asked his sympathizing listener;
"why is your emperor not informed of
it?"
"Oh," sighed the old' man, getting
his broom again in motion, "the emperor is far away; and, besides, in a
quarrel with a nobleman a poor man
like myself must bo in the wrong."
"I will seo tho govofnor of your
prison," was tho next remark.
"Nay, nay, sir," the prisoner hastened to say, in a trembling voice, "pray
do not try to interfere in my favor.
A person unco did so, and ns tho result
I suffered fifty lashes, and have had to
drag this heavy chain, Do not speak
for mo, or I shnll sutler for it."
Another voico now broke in, speaking in luud, harsh tones.
"There you are again, you lazy fellow, chattering away your time instead
of working. Have you found another
soft-hearted fool to listen to your
whining? Co you wish another fifty
lushes, and a chain and bullet .for your
other leg ?"
The brutal speaker was tho over*
seor, and he raised his stick to strike
the old man. But tho gentleman parried tho blow with his walking-cane,
sonding tho truncheon flying.
"Sirrah," exclaimed tho furious
overseer, "I will arrcBt you for daring
to interfere with an official. You ate
a prisoner, sirrah!"
Leisurely tho stranger unbuttoned
his fluitout, disclosing to view a glittering star upon his breast. It was
the Emperor Joseph himself. Ho was
accustomed, whon travelling, to walk
out alone, early and late, seeing things
with his own eyes.
"Mercy! mercy!" cried the terror-
stricken overseer, fulling upon liis
knees.
"Away!" replied tho emperor,
"Lead mo this moment to the governor!"
Tho governor Bank into a panic still
worse than that of the oversoor un
hearing that the emperor had entered
thu jail. He, however, stammered out
that tho blame rusted with the judge,
who was a great friend uf tho count.
"0 groat Gud above, what villainy!"
exclaimed tho emperor. "But woo to
him who now injures n hair of that old
man."
Hurrying back to his castle, tho
ompororordered tho judge to be summoned before him. Tho result wae
that the judge was put into prison,
where he lirst of all recoived fifty
lashes, answering to those ho had, by
his unjust sentence, inflicted on thn
old man; next the chain mul cannon
ball woro transferred from tho innocent prisoner's legs tu his own, after
which he was made to clean tho utroets
of Presburg liko other convicts. And
among his companions iu this task he
soon fouud out tho ex-governor and
the ox-ovorsoor; tho latter of whom
now found the stick ho had so mercilessly ill-used often coming down upon
his own back. Nor did tho good emperor stop hero in doing justice; he
Heut for the liberated old man and thus
addressed him:
"I will make you governor of tho
jail, believing that you, who have suffered tho barbarous cruelties of persecution, will show humanity to tho
prisoners undor you. Pare woll! Collect your family around you, and may
God bless you!'
Bofore thc amazed old man could
thank the just, God-fearing emperor,
tho door of the apartment closed upon
him.
