BY TELEGRAPH.
Robert L. Knox, who bail been
connected with the Panama railway
(or six months, has just returned
home, and gives a startling description of life and death among the laborers on tbe Panama canal. He
says that Panama comes nearer being Hades than any place he was
ever in, The laborers die off like
cattle when murrain strikes them.
"I went down one day to see-the
canal laborers at work," said he,
"and I never will forget what I saw.
The weather was soft that day, and
fifty or more fresh colored fellows
had been brought in. In the afternoon the heat and the air had their
effects upon them, and one by ono
thoy fell. I saw one man hit on the
head by tbe excavating jriuclrine.
He was killed. The body was immediately hoisted into the dumping tube, sent through the machine
and that was the last seen of him.
At night when the men aro through
work they begin a debauch on
smuggled whisky, and then they
fight with knives and kill each
other.—New York Sun.
Some time ago a committee of the
Frenoh senate was appointed to report on the increasing consumption
of alcoholic drink, its influence on
the health and morals of the people,
and the frauds perpetrated in the
manufacture of such liquor, whereby the revenues of tho state are dishonestly diminished, The report,
whioh was recently made, states
that alcohol is the enemy of labor,
of tlie home and of the moral and
physical health of the people. "Of
late years the number of retail
drinking places has increased very
rapidly—the nuniher JBiPfris beinj
now 30,000, and outside of that
city Nibout 400,000—and the consumption of alcoholic drinks has increased proportionately. It is estimated that the French spend about
l,600,000,000francsayear for drink
and the committee reports that a
thousand million of days' work, with
the accompanying wages, is lost by
reason of the saloons. Attention is
also called to the fact that intemperance is augmenting crime and
filling the prisons, asylum and hospitals. Nothing is likely to be done
by the state, however, to remedy
these evils, for the distillers and retailers have great political influence
and the party leaders fear them.
Canadians can fully appreciate the
situation.—Mail.

As the scheme of commercial
union with Canada is more thoroughly discussed the narrower protectionists on either side of the line
are beginning to range themselves
in opposition. There is no manner
of doubt that in each country certain proteated manufacturing operations which are disadvantageous*^
located would suffer from the operation of unrestricted trade. We can
imagine, for example, that the lumber business would be largely transferred to Oanada, nnd the cotton
manufacturing business to the
United States, with manifest advantage to both producers nnd consumers in each country when lrusi
ness should accommodate itself to
the new conditions. It would be
folly to allow the lumber operators
on this side of the St. Lawrence or
the cotton operators on the other
side to dictate a policy opposed to
the interests of the great mass of
people in both countries. There is
nothing compulsory in the project of
reciprocal trade. The Canadians
will not buy of us or sell to us unless they find their profit in so doing, and our buying and selling will
be carried on on precisely the suine
footing. Tlie objection that lies
against trade with Canada lies
equally against trade between Ohio
and Kentucky or Pennsylvania and
Now York. If we lie injured by
tho free exchange of commodities
across state lines we would also be
injured by Canadian reciprocity, but
not otherwise. The objection to
free trade is bottomed upon the
selfishness of protected monopolies.
One glance at the geographical relation ofthe Canadian provinces
and the states of the union which
border upon them is sufficient to
dissipate the argument of restriction.
Whatever barriers may bo raised
against the intercourse of the people
of the North American continent
by diversities of language, government or ownership will, sooner or
later, be broken down by the community nf interests, advantages and
reciprocal opportunities and utilities which are natural to lands and
waters undivided except by imaginary lines.—Philadelphia Record.

HBVOLUTIOXISTS   ROUTED.
Paris, Dec. 2.—Hundreds of the
revolutists and Socialists have taken
advantage of tbe disturbed situation,
and on the pretext that the republic is
threatened and in danger, to-day formed a parade. They started from the
Hotel de Villa and niarched towards
the Chamber of deputies, followed by
a big crowd. The police and cavalry

ranks. The mob retaliated with a
shower of stones, which wounded a
number of police. The rioters were

amended plan of reorganization will be
made publio next week, r The different interests have selected the Central
Co. its trustee undor the liew plan and
it will aot as a reorganization commission of one instead of the'prescnt commission of five. The details of this
plan have boen in dispute for months
and this result is a compromise in
which, however, Mrs. Green has carried her main point that the general
or third mortgage bonds, of which sho
is a holder to tho eston*. of about 81,-
200,000 of the total is;ue of {4,000,000,
should have a largor proportion in

THE   MISSING   ATHLETE — A
LETTER.
Montreal, Dec. 3 —There is no
clue yet to the whereabouta of Ross,
the missing merchant, but rumors of
foul play are current. The members
of the Montreal Athletic auoci.tion.of
which he wss a member, are going to
scour the country for bim this afternoon.
Mr. L. O. David, member of parliament for Montreal Centre, has sent a
letter to L'Mecteur, of Quebec, to protest against the attacks made on the
Saltation army. He says that the population of Quebec is as much opposed
to Christianity as to its own interests
and the national honor.- We believe
that the French Canadians ought
to show the superiority of their religion by serious works, and not by
throwing stones at inoffensive people
and especially at women.
THE    PRESIDENTIAL    ELECTION.— SADI-
CARNOT   ELECTED    PRESIDENT
OP FRANCE.
Versailles, Dec. 3.—First trial
ballot by the aenators ■■ and deputies of the left for candidate for
the presidency resulted as follows:
Ferry, 200; DeFreycinet, 193;Brisson,
81; Sadi-Oarnot, 69; General Saussier,
7. During the taking of fhS' Slit bat-"
lot M. Pelletan made an address to a
number of deputies who congregated
outside the chamber advocating the
election of Sadi-Carnot, thereby uniting all tho republican votes. Several
deputies rejoined that it would be the
first time the majority had lowered to
the will of the minority, and kUki-
that the attitude of Messrs. Brisson
and Sadi-Oarnot was unworthy of a
republican. They urged them to with,
draw in favor of DeFreycinet, who,
after Ferry had obtained the moat
votes.
On the third trial ballot 806 republican senator* and deputies of the left
voted, The vote stood, Ferry, 170;
Sadi-Oarnot, 162; DeFreycinet, IW;
Brisson, 52; Scattering 3.- The fourth
ballot resulted as follows: Sadi-Carnot,
185; Ferry, 35; DeFreycinet, 23;
Brisson, 10; only 253 senator, and
deputies voted. The senators of th*
right arc divided in their choice of a
candidate. The senators propose Gen.
Sautsier, while the deputies in not hi
dined to support him, and it Is certain
no members of the right will support
Sadi-Carnot The congress of senators aud deputies to elect a successor
to President Grevy was opened at two
o'clock by Seroyer, president of the
senate, who declared that the national
assembly was duly constituted to elect
a president. Deputy Michileu, an irreconcilable, asked leave to make a
motion, but the president refund to
allow him to do so declaring that the
assembly was an electoral ooflege. Paul
de Cssagnac observed that the assembly was sovereign. Gautier conteated

The Vancouver Herald ridiculos
the statement liinde a few dnys ago
that about 200 families per day were
leaving eastern Canada for southern
California, and proceeds to show that
this would amount to 100,000 iu six
months. The gentleman who made
the statement to us wns Br. Lindsay, of Strathroy, but wo do not
suppose he meant that this large ox-
odus would Ire kept up tlio whole
timo, or oven for six months. lie
is in a muoh better position to judge
than our Vancouvor cotemporary;
and it is worth while remarking that
just about the timo his statement
was published, a telegram from tho
cast brought tho announcement that
in ono day 50 families had left
Stanstead for California!
A Progressive Country.
Not many of our readers are
aware, perhaps, of the wonderful enterprise and development that
characterises the people of the South
American states of ITruquay and the
Argentine Republic. Until u comparatively recent period theso countries have been regarded as rough
and unpromising, valuable only on
account of their mineral deposits.
The descriptions found iu goo
graphics perpetuate this delusion.
A recent writer in Harper's Weekly
has thrown a great deal of light upon the present condition of this
portion of the continent, and we
propose to give our readers a brief
synopsis of the chief facts brought
out Tbe population of the Argentine Republic has increased 154 per
cent, during the last 25 years,whore-
as that of the United States has increased only 79 per cent. The city
of Buenos Ayres is growing faster
than Minneapolis. Last year it received no fewer than 124,000
European immigrants. Although
large areas of land aro being placed
under wheat and other grain, one of
the chief industries is the raising of
sheep and cattle. In 1885 there
were 100,000,000 sheep iu tho Argentine Republic, whereas the
United States had only 41,000,000.
In the United States there were
40,000,000 cattle to a population of
60,000,000; whereas the Argentine
Republic and Uruquay had 38,000,-
000 to a population of 4,500,000.
As a result of the large number of
these animals, and the small cost of
raising them, beef and mutton are
wonderfully cheap. A cow may be
bought for 85, a fat steer for $10 to
812, a yoke of oxen for $25, and a
sheep for 50 ets. The business of
exporting frozen meat from thoso
countries is immense. The London
& River Plate Frozen Meat Co. is
now shipping 7000 carcasses every
week to England. The Liebig Oo.
uses up 500,000 head of cattle a
year, Buenos Ayres is a progressive,
enterprising city that will compare
favorably with many of the most
modern cities of the continent. It
has 5 important railways, 122 miles
of street-car tracks, has a larger
telephone service and better electric
light than any other known city of
equal population. It possesses 21
daily newspapers, and banks with
capital that will compare with those
of any city. The bank of the Providence has a paid-up capital of
$37,000,000 o circulation of $22,-
000,000, deposits amounting to
$56,000,000, nnd $67,000,000 of
loans and discounts. The National
bank has a capital of $20,000,000,
and there are a large number of
other banks besides, The average
amount on deposit in the banks is
$64 per capita; in the United States
the average is $49. The republic
has 4,200 miles of railway in operation, and the extensions contemplated involve an expenditure of
about $50,000,000. Most of the
capital invested in these railways is
Britisli capital, and tho employees
are chiefly Irish and Scotch. Already one of the lines extends nearly
to the Pacific Ocean, and in a few
years there will be two railways
across South America from ocean to
ocean. We have said thnt there is
now a considerable quantity of grain
grown in this South America republic. Until 1884 both Uruquay
and the Argentine Republic imported grain for home consumption.
Last year the republic exported to
Great Britain and Brazil $7,500,000
worth of grain, and it is believed
the exports of this year will reach
$10,000,000. The climate and general features of the country are very
similar to those of tho United
States, and all vegetation of the
temperate zone seems to thrive. It
is believed that in consequence of
the rapid development of these
South American Slates, their largo
resources, the cheapness of food and
labor, they will before many years
become formidable competitors with
the United States and Canada in
the markets of Europe, Wheat is
said to average 22 bushels to tho
■ore, river navigation is easy, and
then are no railway monopolies.
O. Bortlc, of Manchester, Ontario Co.,
N. Y., writes: "I obtained immediate
relief from the uso of Dr. Thomas' Eolectrio Oil. I hav. had asthma for cloven
yean. Have been obliged to sit up all
night for ten or twelve nights in succession, I can now sleep souudly all night
on a feather bed, whioh I had not beon
able to do previously to using the Oil."

What a Saloon Did.
Whilo sitting iu my oflioo in Topeka,
Kims™, uno dny, Bays iho Hon. John
1\ St. John, a tall woman dressed in
doep black entered. I requested her
to bo seated, and asked hor business.
"Governor," Baid Bho, "I eamo to see
if you will pardon my husband," handing mo at the samo timo a bundle of
papera which atatod that her husband
had boen sont to the penitentiary for
14 yoars,for murder in the first degree,
and was signed by a number of citizens
of tho town, petitioning me to pardon
him. "Madam," said I, "if 1 consulted my own wishes, I would gladly
pardon your husband; but in my official capacity I feel it my duty to tell
you I oannot." She burst into tears,
and sobbing, said: "Govornor, will
you only hear ine a few moments?"
"Certainly," said I, "tell rao the whole
story if you please." "Wo woro married," she Baid, "in one of the eastern
states, and live together happily for a
number of years, when my husband
proposed we should move to Kansas.
I consented, and wo raised enough
money to come DO Kansas. My husband chanced to find a shop with tools,
etc., just suited to his trade in a good
locality, and rented tliem. Ho succeeded so well that at the end of the
year he was ablo to buy the shop and
and tools.
"The next year we built a houso,
and two or three more years saw it
paid for. About fivo years after wo
came to this state wo had reached the
zonith of happiness, it Eoemod, whon
the town licensed n saloon and set it
down between our beautiful home and
my husband's shop. Here he was obliged to pass it overy timo ho came
home to his meals. He was finally
induced by somo persons who called
themselves his friends to go in and
havo a social game of cards with them,
in an idle hour. From cards it eamo
to beor, and from beer to whiskey.
Finally in a drunken brawl, he
killed a man iu n saloon. He was
tried and sentenced to fourteen years
in the penitentiary. At the time I
was the mother uf bix childred. I sold
my house, my husband's shop and
took, and everthing 1 had, to pay the
lawyers' expenses of the defence, and
to support my children, ln tho cold
and cheerless homo whero I moved,
my youngest took cold and died, thon
my next youngest, and only about ten
days ago my son. who was out on tho
broad prairie tending cattle and trying to earn some money to help his
poor mother along, sickeuod and was
brought homo. Only four days sick,
and then we placed him, too, under
the aod! I wns broken down physically, and heart-broken, nud would
have no hope at all except that the
chaplain of tho prison told me that my
husband had been converted to Christ
We came hore to Kansas because your
laws promised to protect the
lives and property from this demon,
and see what a turn! O, governor, will
you not let my husband free?" "Madam," Baid I, "I will;" and I did.
Kum-Hclllng.
Hum-selling is the only business
based on purely physiological science.
Drunkenness is not vice as the religionists consider it. It ia not tu bo
-wondered at that they so place it, because its results are invariably vicious.
The man possessed of the alcohol habit
can do nothing good. Whatever ia evil
in him is intensified, widened, and
broadened by rum. It destroys his
power of making a living, and consequently ho becomes a criminal or pauper. If he is lecherous, rum makes him
more so, for it destroys tho prudence
that would keep him somewhere within linea. If he is blood-thirsty by nature, rum makes him a murderer, lu
short, it increases iu all men the desire for doing whatever is bad, and
breaks down all the safeguards of self
constraint.
it ia a deadly dJBcase. Tho man who
accuatoms himself to tho uso of rum
is in tho rapids, He diseases hia stomach, and in diseasing his stomach
breaks down his will power. He has
really no appetite for liquor, but he
wakes from his debauch weak, pur-
poeelesB. and thoroughly miserable.
He knows perfectly well tlmt hia
wretched condition, mental and physical, is due to rum, and that tho ouly
cure for it is total abstinence. Ho
knows thut if ho will keep away from
it a single day that he will bo eo recovered that ho will be ablo to sustain
longer, but ho is so sorely boset that
ho oannot resist the temptation to take
"just ono" to BUBtain him, and ho
takes it. Ho ought to know that this
one will lead to another, and still another, and then, rejoicing in the temporary strength it has given him, ho
does not care u straw fur any thing, and
will go on until he is in the same condition he was the night before. He
should know this, for ho has tried it a
hundred times; but it is one ot rhe peculiarities of a drunkard's lifo that he
cannot tell thu truth, either to himself or to any ono olse. Every man
addictod to rum practices un himself
the moat absurd deception.
And so tho pogr wretch goes on.
His drunks lap over from ono day to
the other, till stomach ull gono, will
power ull gone ororything.tlmt is-man-
ly all goue, he gives himself up to tho
appetite, and goes to tho devil by tho
shortest road.
According to Dr. B. W. Richardson,
if all tho public houses in the united
kingdom were grouped together, (hoy
would make a city of 180,000 houses,
with 000,000 inhabitants, and with
Attendants nnd frequenters a oity the
size of London.

"Well, Master Tommy, do you call thnt
mnnnirrs, to put a piece of cake in your
mouth ami then put it back on the
plate?" "Oh, no, papal I didn't bite it,
I only kisser! it."
Found in an album: "K one had to
pay to vet into lite, how many would
want their money back on leaving It?"
"In love, two sometimes become one;
but in 'friendship-neverI"
"It's a long time since we saw you at
the club." "I've been staying with my
undo." "Young millionaire uncle?"
"Yos." "Is ho III?" "Seriously bo, I
fear." "Alas, money doesn't bring hap*
piness." "Yes'' it does—lt brings happiness to othen."
In a l'nris saloon: "Inshort, Mr. Bio
rot," sail a mincing baroness, "il some
one should ask you my age what would
you sny ?" "Be easy, Baronne; I should
certainly tako off 50 per. cent."
lioMicr—b'orry to trouble you, sir;
poverty compels me to. Victim—Why
don't you work at some decent business?
Bobber—What! Would you have me
throw the police out of employment ?
lie Garmo (lirrrid of a boys' school)—I
assure you, Mis, De Peyster, it is u privilege to be with the dear boys day after
day, Miss De Peyster—Ah, yes; It must
be delightful to leach the young idea how
to shoot. De (iaruio—Excuse me, Miss
De Peyster; I do not conduct a shooting
school.
Actor—How did my sags go last night?
Manager-First-rate,. Some one sent one
to me to-day that he would like to have

Manager—A bottle ot cod-liver oil.

Hotel clerk—Where do Mr. and Mrs.
Euter live? He forgot to register his
place of residence. Proprietor—I heard

Customer—Givo me a quart of Ice
cream, please. Oh, by the way, Is It well
frozen? I don't like It Hit isn't. Dealer-
I should say it was. We've hired a

"Mr. Kelly," said a New Yorker recently, how do you like the literary air of
Boston?" "Pretty slow compared with
Chicago," replied the 1(10,000 man, "but
it shows signs of improvement."
What Oo Toa Know f
There Ia a man in town who never
meets you without asking "What do you
know ?" He long ago degenerated into a
nuisance. He nails you several times a
day, ahd each time asks you what you
know. He reaches ont a cold, clammy
hand, and wraps about yours, and pulls
you into a doorway tnd says: "What do
you know." One afternoon he met a
gentleman whom he bad met but ones
helore, and accosted him with the same
old question. The gentleman replied:
"I know that my redeemer livethj I
know that three and three make six;
that it is a warm day; that the Dutch
have taken Holland; that correspondents
should write on one aide of the paper
only; that they should sign their true
names, not necessarily for publication,
but aa a guarantee of good faith, I knov
that a hone's age may be told by its
teeth j that my grandfather's clock was
too large for the shell; I know sweet
songs I cannot ting; I know thero it no
place like home; thtt the wind bloweth
where it listeth, and we hear the sound
thereof; that none bnt the brave deserve
the fair; that children should be seen
but not beard; that Jamea G. Blaine It
in Ireland.. I know tha three Ushers
went sailing out Into the west; that the
word 'calipe' Is seldom pronounced correctly; Ihatitltawisetonwhoknoweth
bis own lathe?; that there It,a reaper
and his name is DMtbj that: the boy
stood on the burning deck; that liquor
has desolated many, homes and seared
the hearts ol widows ahd orphans; that
a corn-cob pipe Is belter than a wooden
one; that Cleveland will be left at the
next election, I know, that it'a a poor
rule that won't work both wayt; that,
guests should register npon entering the
hotel, tnd leave all valuables with the
clerk; that Mary had a little lamb; that
the reign ol Queen Victoria bu been
most illustrious tnd—" But the man
who asked the question had already fallen
to the earth, the warm life current gushing Irom his nostrils and ears, while he
who knew so much refused 420 invitations io liquor up, tod moved triumphantly away.

XImBmk Wat wall iterttf.
During tho course of a sermon in a
Dakota town one Sunday a harsh creaking was heard to proceed from under the
church.. "Alter tome time a movement
was felt in the building and several
memben ol the congregation got up and
slartod out, fearing an earthquake was
coming.
"Friends," uid the minister, at he
stopped his termon end leaned on the
pulpit, "pray bemtfi, there la no danger." „.'"' . ,■■"*  "*T
"But tho church It moving and there's
something wrong," replied a lady who
was very much agitated.
"Oh, that's all right, Sitter Brown.
You sne there are some workmen under
tho building with jack-screws, and now
they have hitched on to the back end
with leu yoko of oxen and ore snaking
the ediliiro over on to a back street. In
the morning, Ood willing, work will,
communal on this lot on the Suest opera
houso Wi si of Chicago, I tell you, the
boom hi this town is only nicely started,"
Mr, Etomtnce, in his book on "Mental
Evolution In Animals," gives some
curloiiB Illustration, of modified initincta
due tb early association or training. A
terrier pup, brought up with a kitten, began to bound like a cat, played with mice
by letting them run fnr a distance aud
poiiiiiicing on them, licked hit paws and
rulihwl them, over his eon. Miss Mit-
funt,' Jq her Letters, records similar
habits in a King Oharlee terrier, which
belonged to no less a personage than tho
venerable Dr. Routh, President ot Magda-
.ene College, Oxford. Thlt dog had
been suckled and reared by a cat, having
lost its own mother. He always showed
the proverbial cat-ltko dread of wet feet,
aud never wont out In rain; licked his
paws several times in thu day lor thu
jiiiruose of washing his faco, sitting tlie
while upon Iris tail ill the true euttisb
position; watched a mouse-hole for houn
together; and had, In short, all the ways,
maimers, and disposition! of hit feline
foster-mother.

What Physicians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption hns for some
tlmo been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple ami effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Oignns, "Curatives," but in cases of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment was practicably Impossible until the Introduction of the Starr Kidney
Fad, It costs less than a single prescription and is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of infernal
Medicinal dosing. Worn Immediately over
the seat of Disease, its curative properties
become absorbed by tbe diseased and enfeebled Organs.continuously and directly,
as required to Insure In return their healthy notion and original vigour. It Is com-
fortablo to the patient and pleasant in Its
effects, and cures when nothing else can.
The Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A more valuable
discovery as a true remedy for Kluney
Diseases wns never made.—Medical Gazette

A H0ME~C0MPANY,
This. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:—
The Securuy offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business ln Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the polioy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every Item of Income and how expended.
Its position Is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation In which every Hem
of liability Is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled tn
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeltatrie ufter two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon an equitable Imsts. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
tbe uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Chinese Free Hasons.
The following letter from a Chinaman is taken from the (Morn's'.' To
THE Esousit People: It has been
said that tho Chinese Free Mason society, "Cheo Kung Toug", hnrborsbad
characters. This is an erroneous opinion, and calculated to d>, much harm
to tho good Chinese residents in this
city. Our aim in life is to do good, be
just and kind to our fellow beings, nnd
help the poor, as societies of your race
endeavor to do. If a man dies and
his wife is living in this city we give
her money to go home to hor parents
and send the body of her husband
along too. When the explosion at Nanaimo, with such fearful results, took
place, and iu which so many of our
countrymen were killed, wo supplied
tho money, some ?300, for their burial. In the year 1885, when so
many were destitute, we supported
them and kept them from starving.
What wo have stated is true, and you
can easily see tbat the prevailing opinion is more a prejudiced one than anything else. Our Free Mason society
is exactly the samo as that of tho Ftis-
lish people Chee Kusq Toso.
The Indian shooting Case.
Mr. Moresby returned to-day from
Tumbo island, whore ho had becu ordered by the government to investigate
the murder of a five-ytar-old Indian
girl. On arriving on the island Mr.
Moresby immediately went to Ihe hut
where the dead child lay, and on examination found tho girl had been
killed by a shot through the breast,
which entered just above tho left nip-
Jlc. Tho wife of Sum explained ro
sane Tntton, a neighbor, that she turd
her husband wero quarreling and Sam
picked up the gun to kill her, but just
ns he fired she turned the gun aside,
the shots from which killed the little
girl, who must havo been peering
through a crevice in the door at tbe
time. When tbe child was shot she
turned and ran twenty yards and thon
fell. The woman picked her up nnd
carried hor to Tatton's house, whero
sho died two hours uftorwarda. Tho
Indian and his wife remained nrniind
for several hours afier tho child died,
and then left in a canoo, and nro supposed to have mado for Waldron island which lios about oight miles
nway. Tutton wob so confused and bewildered by the event that ho allowed
tho Indian to dopnrt iu peace, Tho
Indian was apparently in a state of bewilderment also, as ho departed leaving his gun nnd oven hie bouts bohind.
Tho.only witness in tbo caso is the Indian's wife, who, it appears, cannot
give or'idenco against hor husband
even if she wished to, which is very
unlikely. Sum was drunk at the time
the shooting took place.

Playing a Fine Game.
London, Nov. 25—The two salient
facts about President Grovy'B resignation ia that ho poraonnlly gainod by it
whilo Olomenjeou lost. Clemencenu
bus [ilaycd much too fino a game. Tho
nowiqiapers agree in saying that ho
ought to have accepted Grevy's invitation to form a ninistry on his old democratic platform, but Olemonceau's object was to drive Grovy into a trap
ami at the same time to play the Gam-
botta role of ministry breaker. Gravy's
oxpulsion accomplished, tho miBorable
intrigue will go uo further. Tho public service will not bo purified, an interim president will be chosen,and the
struggle will go on na before.
Meanwhile 1 hoar Irom Constantinople
that Fordinaiid'a government has accomplished n rrrrrst diplomatic stroke.
It hns decided to resume the payment
of tho Eastern lloumelian tribute. This
is a first-rato political move. It will
please and concilitate tho Turks and
probably securo tho Sultan's aoknow-
legoniontof Ferdinand. Tho Britisli
mission whioh iB now on its way to
Abyssinia has a letter to King Johnad-
vising him lo give up Masowah to the
Italians, nt the same time promising to
try to persuade the Italians to give
Abyssinia a freo passoge to the const.
This is precisely what in 1884 Englnnd
guaranteed, but Lord Granville flagrantly broke tho engagement by
inviting Italy to soizo Massowah,
Now our eagerness to retain tbo Italian alliance haa mado us responsible
for this gross breach of faith.

Timothy Harrington Arrested,
Dublin, Dec. 2.— Mr. Timothy
Harrington, member of parliament for
Dublin, was arrested hero to-day undor tho coercion ncl. Tho arreBt of
Timothy Harrington iB regarded in
nationalist cirolcs as an attempt on the
government to cripple the league,Har-
rington having beon the principal director of the affairs of the loaguo since
the arrest and incarceration of O'Brien
and tho extensive travelling of Mr.
Dillon, who has been stumping Ireland
at intervals during the past fow months.
Harrington will bo ablo to prove, however, that ho has bad no connection
with the Tralee Sentinel for the last
five years, and hia conviction, if accomplished, will only show that the uo-
cusation is equivalent to condemnation
in tho caso of any prominent home
ruler who may be arrested. It iB rumored that the government intends to
arrest Mr. Healy also. An immense
crowd met Mr. Harrington on his arrival at tlra <Tralee railway station tonight, and through tin ir demonstrative acts eamo into collision with the
police. When Harrington appoarod
in viow, bo was greeted with doafon-
ing cheers, and the polico came in for
a corresponding share of roproach and
vilifications. Tho crowd finally bo-
camo bo persistent in their condemnation of the government and its servants, and so menacing iu their attitude, that the order was given to charge
with drawn bayonets, which the polico
promptly obeyed, using thoir olubs
with groat vigor. The crowd, unable
to withstand, tho onslaughter, fell back
and finally dispersed, many of their
number being injured. Harrington
was taken before the magistrate and
released on bail.
Mrs. Bamhart, cor. Pratt & Broadway,
