The Narkerel and the Marplots.
Tho speeches made and the re
solutions adopted at the fishery
meeting in this city plainly betrayed
its character as a Blaine side-show.
There was nothing that the managers
of the side show seemed to desire so
little as a peaceful adjustment of
the fishery dispute. In one of the
resolutions President Cleveland was
called upon to make "peaceful exercise" of the embargo act of the
forty-ninth congress. That would
be settling a quarrel with a vengeance! While the most earnest
efforts are being made to finally put
at rest a dispute that has been in
existence for nearly a century, the
followers of Blaine are doing all in
their power to keep alive this sub
ject of international irritation in the
desperate hope of turning it to
partisan account. They would not
hesitate to embroil the county in
war with a friendly nation over a
miserable mackerel quarrel if they
could thereby accomplish their petty
personal ends. During the last
season, as everybody knows, no
cause of controversy or complaint
was raised by any action of the
Dominion authorities towards the
New England fishermen. On the
contrary, great care was taken to do
nothing that might tend to embarrass the pending negotiations. The
act of congress was prospective in
its purpose, and was designed to
give the president a discretionary
power, to be exercised in case of any
outrage upon American] frtajiea
in Canadian wators. But this aeei-
ing, in its resolutions, has asked
the president to put an embargo
upon the trade of Canada with the
United States as a retaliation for
old offences, which are now the subject of judical inquiry and diplomatic negotiations. The chief aim
of this movement is to throw
obstacles in the way of a peaceful
settlement of a question that ought
never to have reached the dignity of
an international quarrel, aud that
never would have been so magnified
but that the New England fishermen have been made the dupes of
designing demagogues.—Philadelphia Record.   •
8leans Vaehts.
Washington O'Connor, one of the
trustees of the American Yacht
Olub, says that' it is not unlikely
that an international- steam yacht
race will occur this year. He has
canvassed the matter thoroughly.
Scotchmen, after the Volunteer-
Thistle race, expressed a desire to
bring over a steam yacht, and Watson, the designer os the Thistle, has
dlieady drawn the design for a
steam yacht which he thinks
will average eighteen and one-
half to nineteen knots per hour.
Jay Gould's Atlanta, having shown
only seventeen and one-half knots, it
would be necessary to build a new
yacht to hold the cup in the event
of a race, should Watson's anticipations lie realized. Connor thought
tt likely that Watson's boat, which
will be about one hundred and
ninety feet long, will make the ex-
Gted record. Herreshoff, the blind
Ider at Bristol, R. I., is building
a yacht 135 feet long, which he expects, will develop nearly the speed
of Watson's boat. It is also reported that Halsey's ship-building
firm on the other side, who makes
torpedo-boats for the British government, has designed a steam yacht to
be SOO feet in length, with twins
screws, and a guarantee of nineteen
knots an hour. Should a contest occur it will be decided by the best
two out of the three races, the first
raco to be over the club course of
eighty knots, between the clubhouse at Milton Point and New
London, starting from the latter.
The second will be an outside race
in the vicinity of Cape May. if
the third race should be necessary
the terms of that will be mutually
agreed upon by the owners of the
contesting yachts. As to the time,
almost any time of the year will do.
ThechnllengehnBto be sentsix months
in advance of the contest. If Watson and his friends intend to try
this year, as it is believed they do,
we shall probably be so informed
by April. If it were doomed advisable, Gould would no doubt pit his
yacht Atlanta against all-corners.
The fact that the Atlanta has entered nearly all races has kept many
other boats out, so that we have
not a fair idea as to the capability
of all the yachts of the club. A
favorable opportunity will be given, j
now that Gould has presented a cup
to bo raced for and has barred out
the Atlanta, Other prominent
yachting men express the opinion
that there will be a race, and all
predict great improvement in steam
yachts as the result.—N.   Y.   Des-

London, Jan. 26.—A fresh and formidable up rising in Bulgaria is predicted as the result of the intrigues of

his wife came to this city and acknowledged a deed of property to Aoschlajr,
Since then the couple have not been
seen. Anschlag claims he brought
them in before daylight on Tuesday
morning to tako the train. A search
at their houoe proves that all their
clothing, trunks nnd jewelry, including
her gold watch are all unmolested or
not even packed up and put away.
Every indication leads to Iho guilt of

Robinson, who worked near each
other. A quantity of gas had collected where thoy were employed, and
thia had first to be removed. At fifteen minutes to noon Robert Robinson was discovered, and at 1:30 - p. m.
Lance Robinson waa also found, thus
completing the work of recovering' the
bodies of the white miners. At this
hour 37 Chinese Had also been taken
out, leaving 9 remaining, the Ohinese
bosses claiming that 4(i were missing.
The great majority of the victims were
fearfully mutilated and blackened,
their skins being burned off and their
heads especially battered. The terrible force that knocked them about
played sad havoc. Elisha Davis, t
young man found daring the night, wii
unrecognizable, except for a portion of
his shirt, of which a little wu (till retaining. His leg waa torn out of iti
socket and blown forty yards from
where, at last, hia mangled trunk wu
discovered. A portion of the head
was blown off and his body was crushed into a shapeless mass. Hia wu
the worst ease of all, and is accounted
for by the fact that he was engaged in
blasting some rock and had several
sticks of giant powder for that purposo. The concusssion must have ei-
ploded these, and the full force fell
upon poor Davis. Many other victims were gashed about tho head and
burned to the middle, while their
limbs were free from any hurt. One
Chinaman wu stripped of all his clothing, and the soles of both of hia boots
were blown off, leaving the uppers on,
Several white men were stripped en-
tirely of their clothing. A miner's
pick was blown up to the eye in the
solid timber. There were several
caves during the explosion ythHt1e_tee- '■
lnlly in that portion where the two
Robinsonltverefound, andit is thought
that it was from this quarter that tht
explosion came, as it waa at the extreme end of the level However,
nothing definitely will ever be known,
for all who were working in the eut
level are dead. The list of the dead
white men as copied into the register
is: Robert Williams, Alex. If. Ross,
Nova Scotia; Robert Greenwill, Cape
Breton, N. S.; Duncan McDonald,
Cape Breton, N. S.; James Jones,
North Wales; Jacob Kleinn, Germany;
Joseph Chanot, Belgium. John Stewart, England; Wm. Hurne, .Scotland;
John Brarkie, Italy! Jno. MaraJMll,
Cornwall; Vallerio, Italy; Xavier Rig-
ard, Belgium; Charles Tiller, Cornwall; Wm. Wilks, Northumberland;
John Whall, Illinois; Ezra Godfry,
Bedfordshire; John Bologna, Italy;
Leopold Rigard, Belgium; Frank McCoy, Iowa; David Gordon, Scotland;
James Morrison, Nova Scotia: Richard Vincent, Cornwall; John McNeil,
Scotland; John Williams, Wales;
EleshaDavis, England; William Fined,
Lancashire; Wm. Dowber, Robert
Robinson, Newcastle, England; Lance
Robinson. The greater number of the
above are young, unmarried men ud
two of the married men have large
families.
An estimate cannot be formed of the
extent of the loss to the mine owners,
but it is thought it will foot up to between f 25,000 and «30,000. All th*
pits were shut down on the day of the
explosion and will probably not recommence work before Monday. It will
take some four or five weeks to repair
the damage to the shaft and tbe engino and pumping connections, and to
clear out the mine ready for a renewal
of work. The accident to No. 5 wu a
surprise to all, for it wu considered
tho safest mine on the island. If men
could at any time exercise a choice,
they always selected No. 5 to work in.
There was every reason for this. The
air forced down the shaft was separated at its foot, one portion going in
the east and tho other to the west
level, and after travelling in the different directions through the mine it met
at the vent and ascooded. In other
levels the air is plarted through one
level only, and is divided by means of
brattices in ita course through the
mine to where it escapes to the surface. Great precautions have always
been taken in order to prevent the accumulation of gas, and dust wu kept
well damped. The shift that had come
up at 8 o'clock hnd been actively at
work blasting, and there wu not the
slightest fear of an explosion, Had
tbe mine not been distributed in districts and the air divided, it is more
than probable that many, if not al],
in the west slope would also have
perished. The foroe penetrated 200
yarps into the weat level, but returned
and took ita exit through the hoisting
shaft. The fact that the mine did not
fire, and also the immediate restoration of the fan, made it pouible to restore pure air, and the west slope
miners were all saved.

Newspapers published in the
blizzard region are now coming to
hand with iloniale ami apologies.
Each locality firmly repels the idea
that it is either the homo of the
blizzard, or thnt it is even n genial
field for the exploits of that festive
phenomenon. But it is going to be
tlitlicult for some of them to explain
away the effects which arc seen after the storm. Carcases of men and
women and horses and entile, sturk
and still', are being scattered over
tlie northwestern states, and are unmistakable witnesses to the severity
of the visitation. When one finds
the thermometer nbout 00 below
zero and the wind blowing at the
rate of 50 miles an hour, ono naturally jumps at tho conclusion that it
is a blizzard. Tho hair-splitting
definitions of the affected regions
rouy satisfy the minds of some people that it was merely an abnormal
combination of electrical and uiotcor-
ological phenomena, but such an explanation doesn't bring to life the
frigid eorpsc3 or recompense the
owners of herds and flocks which
lmve withered like tender plants before the icy breath of the "phenomena." As a rule, newspapers do
nut lio; but very few of them seem
to be possessod of that robust honesty necessary to the admission of a
veritable blizzard about the sanctum.
One of the most profitable, cards
of the stock gamblers in Europe
seems to be the war cry. While it
is quite possible there may be n
Huropennwar, it is more likely that
the warlike rumors which have been
agitating the country arc to a groat
extent the production of the brokers
who hope in tire excitement and distrust to make a big profit. It is
now commonly believed thnt the
fraudulent despatches to the czrtr,
purporting to have come from Bismarck, were prepared and sent by
the stock jobbers, who came near
precipitating a conflict between
Germany snd Russia in their
anxiety to scoop in a lot of shekels.
How much they made out of the
fraud we do not know; but, fortunately, the imposition was detected
and exposed before the two angry
nations came to blows. It is time
civilized governments adopted some
now regulation in respect to such
performances. There ought to be a
way of obtaining exemplary punishment for on ofi'ence so s?rious,
and the results of which might be
so widespread and so terrible. At
best, stock-gambling is a business
which might be abnndomd entirely
without injury to tire general public
interest. It is a moans of making
a few people abnormally rich at the
expense of a vast multitude who
lose. Its victims are often either
millionaires or paupers; and, considering tho circumstances under
which wealth is obtained, it may be
doubted whioh class deserves tho
more sincere pity. There should bo
a law against it, the same as there
is against any other form of gamb
ling. When men are able, under
cover of law, to squeeze large sums
out of the people withont equivalent,
and endanger the peace of the
world, there is something wrong
somewhere.
It is: to be hoped the Dominion
government will this year be prevailed upon to make an appropriation 'sufficient to bring to a speedy
completion tho improvements commenced some timo ago at tin* mouth
of the Fraser River. Thero is no
doubt but this work could be completed much more economically in
one season than by continuing it
from year to year over a considerable period. Each year it is necessary to provide now appliances for
the successful prosecution of tho
work, and the aggregate cost of these
will amount to a large sum. If a
man with a contract for the erect ion
of a house were to build only a
smnll portion each summer, and the
circumstances were such as to tntiko
it necessary for him to erect new
scaffolding evory spring, the building
would be a very costly all'air. Hut
this is just about the kind of a policy the government has been pursuing with respect to the rivor improvements. The result is not only
a costly piece of work, but it post-
pones beyond all reason the time
when the people of the mainland
will begin to reap the benefits which
are expected to come from the im
provement of navigation. While
the government has, during the past
few yean, done many things to give
increased mail and commercial facilities to Victoria and Vancouver,
very little has been dono towards
helping the people of Westminster.
We are not going to quarrel with
what has been done elsewhere; but
we think the interests of Westminster, with its large and important industries, are ontitled lo as
much consideration as those of any
other part of British Columbia. The
aum necessary to complete the works
referred to is so small that there can
be no reasonable excuse offered for
further delay, and if the coming
aessionof parliament goes past wii liout an appropriation sufficient for
thia purpose, thore will be a great
deal of disiatisfaction and disappointment in thii city ond district.

Greeley's Humor.
Mr" Greeley's humor was of a peculiar
soi% but it was allied to genius. So
many anecdotes have heen told of him
In illustration 0* rhis that one can hardly
expect to produe - any. now that some ono
has not repeated. Those w!ro tried to
joke with him In his disadvantage were
generally worsted, whether they did it
orally or throurli the press. One evening an aesociat editor of the -Tribune
accosted him as he came to hiB desk
With some such i{ueatir>n as this:
"Didn't you kno.iv, Mr. (Jreeloy, that:
you made a drr-nlfiil hlnnrl -r in one of
yous statistical u.litorialu this morning?"
"No; how was it?" said Mr. Greeley.
"Why, you sriiil sojiiuthing about
'Heidsieck' and iiump-rgno. Don't yon
know Heidsieck i.elutmp-gno?"
"Well," said ..Ir. llruel -y quietly, "I
am the only alitor nl' Una paper that
could mako that mistake."
On another oeV-ision a' person who
wished to have :r Utile Inn nt the expense
of hi-i consisteii y. snld in rt group wnere
Mr. Greeley was Handing;
"Mr. Greeley mil I, gentlemen, are
old friends. We have ilr.in r n great
deal of brandy and water tojMlier.
"Yea," sairi Mr. Greeley, "tn.il is truo
cnongh. You ilntiilt tlie branny, and I
drank tho water."
Tobacco was Iris sp-c'sl dislik-; and a
friend of mine, 'r.uOwTiirJ Uli.r w-.r.l, whilo
handing aroini. n li.rx nl cgnrs to a row
who were prea rn with Mr. Gruel.-y, tonic
special pains to 'rani htm the bux w.th
great ostentation.
"So," said Jlr Greeley,'"Ithankyoo.
I haven't got so ow down u that y*t. I
only drink anil swear."

of a charge that -rust have been much
exaggerated an I lUriKH-jly d.s.rirtt-d (ior

justriiable occasio.m, though, for objurgatory epithets aa any one I ever knew;
and, if he had n*-t sometimes spoken
vehemently ho wo ill have been truly
angell -. His liandwritrnji. in sp.tj of ail
that was said of it, was not the worst in
the world; hut it was very nearly tho
homeliest. It was fairly appalling to
look at. But it did have a anue-rhat
uniform alphabet. Almost a I the words,
like a certain on" ih iturua i'.io.itd's penmanship, looked Irk,- "ri,,.,irons struck

was not so very liar.i to read. Tho

"The funniest thing I ever ran acro.w
in the ten yean 1 have held this position
happened yesterday," said my friend,
the ticket agent. "A young man came
to the window and bought a ten-rile
family suburban Ucket. After pay,rig
for it he asked me to punch out seven
rides. I didn't exactly und r.-tan I what
he wanted, and told him the conductor
Would attend to that all right enough.
He then explained to me that his wife
had given him a ticket that morning containing four rid-a; he Ira 1 used oncoming in and lost the ticket during tho
day, and rather than admit having lost
it he bought the new Ucket an 1 had the
same number of rides punched out."

In praise of Ayer'a Cherry Peotoral, bo-
llettag u I do that, bnt for lta nw, I
should long since have died from lung
tronbles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
Abont six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
m» of sleep ana rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayor's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that It
helped me at once. By continued use
this medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. B.
Coburn, 18 Second St., Lowell, Moss.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have been ln my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
ma of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
for which Ihad almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. MoMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Peotoral saved my life.
Two yean ago I took a very severe Cold
whioh settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies they
prescribed, but foiled to obtain relief
nnttl I began using Ayer's Cherry Peo-
toral. Two bottles ot this medicino
completelyrestored my health. - Lizzie

Speech from the Throne.
Not the lieutenant-governor's speech,
but tho speech of the new mayu- of
Victoria, which ho delivered at the
first meeting of tho new council. It
occupies nearly throe columns in the
Times, and is more formidable thai'
any speech ever delivered at tho open
ing of tbe provincial legislature. Not
withstanding the length of it, however,
it contains vory little of general public
interest.
Olivet Bapilsi church.
It is with much regret that we announce the resignation of Rev. Robt,
Lennie as pastor of the Olivet Baptist Church in this city. Tho resignation was handed in last night, and
Mr. Lennie will preach his last ecr*
mons next Sunday na pastor of tho
church. The reasons for this change
wo need not refer to. It is quite
poBsiblo that although retiring from
the position of pastor, Mr. Lennie
may remain in the city with hia
family.
During the past week the wires of

lieutenant-governor's speech, and a report of the opening .ceremonies, but
all the wires were down. We presume everything came off according to
programme, however, particulars will

The Train*.
The railroad situation is apparently
getting worse instead of better. Instead of getting a train to-day as expected, it will he several days before
one arrives. Clearing away the slides
between Yule and North Bend has
proved a much greater undertaking
than at first anticipated. Every man
who ean he secured is at work shovelling away the snow, and the most
strenuous efforts aro being put forward
by the company to get the line clear
again. To make matters worse the
bridgo over Nicomen slough is said to
have been earned nway attain; if such
proves to be the ease, aud tho break is
a bad one, it mny be a week before
trains are running regularly. The passengers detained at North Bend aro
comfortably situated, and, barring a
fow, are happy and contented.

West minster Choral I nlon.
To many of our readers, who have
uot long beeu residents of the city, it
may be interesting to know that tho
choral union, (those concert gave so
muoh satisfaction on Wedhesday n'ght,
is now a little over seven years old It
wus organized oh tho 17th Novomber,
1881, miiinly through the efforts of the
Bishop of Now Westminster, who has
been its conductor from the beginning.
The original membership was 10: it is
now CO. During the period of its existence the union hits given 19 concerts,
of which that given on Wednesday
night was one of tho most successful.
Among the works rendered at those
concerts wo find Handel's Meuaiah,
Bennett's May Queen, Maofnrren's
Mny Day, Barnaby's Rebeckah,
Mendelssohn's Mutetts, Schubert's
Merriam, Pergolcsi's Stahat Mater, tho
Sleeping Beauty, etc. Those who are
familiar with these compositions need
not he told that some of them nro very
difficult, and thoir successful presentation requires not only a good knowledge of music, but considerable compass ol voice and much careful practice. The people of the royal city are
to be congratulated upon possessing so
successful nnd efficient a musical organization, snd wo hopo its concerts
will receive that patronage which their
merits deserve. The presont officers
of tho union are ns follows: Tho
Bishop of iSew Westminster, conductor; H. L. Bullock, president; N. A.
White, seoretary; T. R. Pearson, treasurer. J, S. Clute, jun., librarian,

CuiM.iWHAi.'K, Jan. 20. —On the
evening of Thursday, tlie 10th inst.,
nn entertainment was held iu tho
Methodist Church, Centreville. Ro-
citations, solos, duets nnd choruses of
a very high order were givon by the
young folks of tho congregation. A

teachers nnd others. At tho close of
tho programme Miss Gertrude E.
Kipp, organist, was made the recipient
of a very handsome gold watch, accompanied by au address acknowledging the indebtedness of the congregation to her for her labors, and expressing the gratitude and high regard entertained for her.
Jacob H. Uloomor, of Vigil, N. Y.,
writes: -'Br. Thomas' Kclectric Oil
cured a badly swelled neck and sore
throat on my son in forty-eight hours;
one application also removed tho pain
from n sore toe; my wife's foot Was also
much inflamed—so much so that she
could not walk about the house; she applied the Oil, and in twenty-four hours
was entirely cured."
