A Successful Trial.
Washington, June 27.—Capt. Henry
Erbnn, president of the trial board of
the cruiser Philadelphia, which made
her initial trip yesterday, telegraphed
Secretary Tracy this morning that it
was highly successful in every way.
Tho speed of the Philadelphia was uu-
exceptionally high and the vessel had
returned tn tho ship yard. No details
are given, but the navy department
officials are sanguine that the official report of the trial board will fullv confirm
tlif-briof despatch and published re
ports whiqh appeared in printthismorn-
mg.  _.
Tlie   Fastest  Afloat.
Pnii,Ai)i-:r.rniA, June 27.—The new
cruiser Philadelphia returned in triumph
this morning after having demonstrated
that she is tho fastest warship afloat.
She arrived at Cramp's wharf promptly
at 9 o'clock. Thus far she is shown to
have made MM! knots per hour over 80
miles of the official course. Her builders will consequently reajj a reward of
at least $15,000 as premiums over and
above the contract price. When the
corrected figures are made public, and
allowance made for the fact that wind
and tides were against a fair square test,
the sum will be increased.
Imllnii Trouble.).
Hiii.ENA, Mont., June 27.—News has
jnst come from Cheyenne agency that
Jules Seminole, tho agency interpreter,
has killed a Cheyenne Indian. It was
issue day and the Indians wore gathered
at the agency in large numbers. Seminole's discharge had been asked for by
the Cheyenne's, and they threatened
Agent Upshaw that if Seminole acted aB
iiiterperter at another issue they would
kill him and throw Upshaw off the issue
houBe. Upshaw knowing that Seminole
was guiltless of any offence and, fearing
if he discharged him at the IudiaiiB request they would then demand and inisist
on the discharge of every other employee
distasteful to them, refused. One of tho
Cheyennes had an altercation with
Seminole and the Cheyenne becoming
threatening, Seminole shot and killed
him. Seminole surrendered to Mayor
Carroll, and the Indians demanded his
return to them, and threatened to take
him away. As Carroll has three troops
of cavalry there is not much danger of
this. Thoso present at the killing say
it was done in self defence. A short
time ago a Cheyenne attempted to take
Upshaw's life. A deputy sheriff and
coroner have gone to the scene.
A Long Swim.
Independence, Iowa, June 27.—A
lunatic named W. J. Blackett escaped
from the insane hospital at this place
on Wednesday afternoon and going to
the river on the outskirts of the citv,
undressed and proceeded to take a licth.
This"waB about three o'elock, At7 o'clock
persons nt Quasquctou, about 20 miles
below here on the river, telephoned up
that a nude man had gone over the dam
at that place alive, and hnd then proceeded on his way down the stream and
that they hnd procured a boat and
captured him about a mile below the
village. Blackett was scut for uud
taken back the bbuio night. When
captured he was nearly exhausted aud
probably could not have held out half
an hour longer. He seems to be quite
rational aud aaid that he intended to
swim until his strength gave out and
then drown.
A Mysterious Affair.
Noitwicn, Conn., Juno 27.—A strange
night assault was perpetrated at Colchester village, 16 miles north of this
city, tho othor day, the motive for which
aud the identity of the ruflhin being still
a mystery. After Henry Miller, a well-
to-do and respected citiiton of Colchester,
had returned from town at about ten
o'clock, he left his wife at tho gate and
took the team to the barn. He had put
his horses in the stable and was closing
the stable door when he was assaulted
by a man secreted near the burn, who
struck him on tlie head with a heavy
club, several feet long. He was twice
struck, the second blow breaking the
club and felling Miller to the ground.
The blows mado two ugly gashes iu his
scalp. He got up and started to run
nnd when little more than half way to
tho house was overtaken by the
ruffian and knocked down again.
The man ran between him aud
the door of the houso shouting, "Xow I
will shoot you," fired a shot before Miller could got up. The ball, which was
of 32 calibre, struck his left arm about
five inches below the shoulder, and
passed upward and came utit below the
collar bone, making a track 5- inches in
length. As Miller rose and started to
run again he was fired at a second time,
the pistol being not more than two feot
from his head. Again ho fell and tho
shot missed him. It went through the
window of a workshop near by, lodging
in au ashe plank. Thon Miller ran for
the house, tho assassin following him to
the door. Miller pulled the door behind him nnd called for his revolver,
but the villain hnd fled, and was Been
no more. Mrs. Miller heard the cries of
her husband during his struggle to get
away from Ids assailant and rushed to
the door, asking what was the matter.
The assassin yelled back, "Stop your
noise, or I'll snoot you." This was just
before he fired at Miller, the shots following in quick succession. Miller bled
profusely from his wounds, which were
not dressed until the following morning,
when a surgeon was called. His nrm
was badly bruised and swollen from
warding off the blows. No motive can
he assigned for the murderous assault,
ami the assailant is not known.
Thu 1'nipn Hate,
Monthe.u, June 27.—Tho Uazette. says:
A gentlemen who has had a large experience in the Northwest gives it as
his opinion thut the Northwest crops
thiB year will be iu no danger from frost.
The observation., of tho oldest inhabitants is thnt frost only comes with tbe
full of the moon and ns hum does not
show the entire breadth of her countenance this harvest season till the 29th of
August thoro will ho plenty of time to
securo the crops bofore frost is to be
looked for.
A  Honry  Villain.
Nrwhaven, Conn., July 26.—Luclon
W. Sperry, not many years since one of
Nowhnvcn's most prominent citizens,
shot and killed himself this morning at
11 o'clock. He was 70, years old and
had Berved the city as mayor and represented it iu the legislature. He was a
descendant of one of the earliest families
of Ncwhaveu and was a brother of Post
Master N. D. Sperry. The suicide was
caused by financial troubles. Sperry,
some years ago; was appointed trustee
of an estate valued at $16,000.   Within
the past few weeks his relatives have
been trying to get control of the estate
and Sperry was ordered by the court to
render au account. He could account
for only $7,000 and was adjudged an embezzler and would probably have been
arrested had he not shot himself. Besides this he had cheated several men
in different ways to the extent of some
thousands of dollaiB and was under at
least $50,000 criminal indebtedness without a dollar with which to clear himself,
Sperry always lived in -.line style and
passed much of his life iu Europe. His
suicide caused a sensation, as he shot
himself in a house which is in one of
the most fashionable portions of Orange
street.	
Cruiser Suni-used to he Lost.
Sob'niASii'TON, L. I., June 20.—The
new cruiser, Philadelphia, which w
making a trial trip yesterday from a
point 8 miles off the rock to Block Island and return, over a course of 80
miles, made the full trip, so far as can be
ascertained. She left the patrol ship,
anchored at the starting point, nt 12;.10
yesterday. She returned again to the
starting point at 4:08 p.m. and then
steamed out to sea again and since then
has not been seen. She is thought to
have gone to the bottom.

CRIMINAL COURT.
(Before Ills Honor Judpi Bole.)    '
Regina vs. Radford.—Defendont had
been sent up for trial for assault and
highway robbery on Mr. Thos. Ovens n
few nights ago. *
Mr. Leamy, by. leave of the court, indicted the prisoner for common assault,
as that appeared to be the only offence
committed. Prisoner, through his counsel, Mr. Armstrong, pleaded guilty.
His Honor.—This is a case of an exceeding trifling nature, although from
the commitment one might wellsuppose
a very serious offence, namely, highway
robbery, had been committed on the
public streets of our city. On investigation of the depositions it appears clear
that if any offence at all was committed
ib was a common assault of a very trivial
nature and one which should have been
dentt with by the imposition of a nominal line, in the police court, It is
manifestly improper that cascB of this
kind should bc sent for trial, thus causing much expense to the country needlessly, nnd I venture to hope that this
will be the last time I shall havo to
make theso remarks. As while magistrates should never hesitate to send
every case of importance for trial to the
higher courts, it iB equally their duty
to try and determine summarily all
cases within their jurisdiction.' The
sentence.of the court is thnt the prisoner be imprisoned for one day from date
of committal.
A llonutlful Sultscrlptioti Pit-hire.
We have just received from Mr. Weld,
editor and proprietor of tho Farmer's
Advocate, of London, Out., and Winnipeg, Man,, a copv of his subscription

beautiful landscape. In the foreground
nro the portraits of nine celebrated
draught horses. Thu ownership aud
the particulars of each horse is
concisely given. The picture itself is a
very fine original cngriwiug. The best
animal artist iu the Dominion is said
to have spent the greater part of six
mouths engraving it. The excellence of
the tvork has certainly proved his ability
to be very good. The portrait of each
horse is true aud lifelike. All tho experts who have examined it pronounced
it a masterpiece. Mr. Weld has had
this work engraved to he used entirely
as a subscription prize. He has generously put it within the reach of every
farmer in Canada. TIiobc who wish to
obtain copies in frames, by sending five
new siibscribei'B to the Farmer* t Advo-

It is one of the most costly and finest

Liveiu'Ool, June 26.—The enquiry
into the recent accident to the Anchor
Line steamship City of Rome, at Fast-

judgment rendered is that the casualty
was due to the failure of the captain to
attend to warnings conveyed by the
sounding lead. No action has been
taken with regard to the captain's sailing certificate.
Imperial   Parliament.
London, June 26.—In the House of
Commons this evening Mr. W. H.Smith
stated that the Government, having
found that there remained no alternative, would withdraw its proposed Local
Taxation Bill. Mr. Smith said that at
a future day the Government would
suggest what disposition should he made
of the funds thus released,
The serious character of the proceedings in the House of Commons was relieved this evening by an episode which
afforded general amusement. A monster petition in favor of the Licensing
Bill, to which it originators, the publicans, had obtained 500,000 signatures,
was carried to tho palace of St. Stephen
a few days agot and deposited in a corner in Westminster Hall, pending its
presentation to Parliament. To-night
threo ponderous rolls of paper, each
measuring seven feet in diameter, which
the petition, comprises, were trundled
into the House with much difficulty and
placed in the centre aisle. They filled
the aisle completely, and it was impossible for members to see or hear anything across them. The Liberals kept
up a constant stream of objections to
the acceptance of the petition, and for
a time the howls, protests, peals of
laugliter and chaffing, in which tho
members indulged, bereft, the House of
all semblance to a deliberative body,
Order was finally restored long enough
to reach the result of ordering tho removal of the petition, and it was trundled back to its corner without being
presented.
In the House of Commons this evening, Sir James Fergusson stated thnt the
Governor of Newfoundland had cabled
that ho had no knowledge of a conflict
between the French and native fishermen.

Mr. Charles Victor Bating is an English barrister who has come to this
country to seek investments iu mining,

what was the precise object of his mission in this country, he replied that he
had heard of the immense resources of
the coal fields of the Northwest ond the
gold mines ' of British Columbia, aud
that he was on his way to the Bow
River district, where he will personally
inspect the mining interests of the district. From there he will proceed to
Sitka, Alaska, where largo leads of gold
are said to occur. His also his intention to see what the timber of the country amounts lo.' It has beon reported
that large forests of hickory, black walnut and oak abound there, and if this is
the case they will be bought up. Mr.
Baring is a member of the great Baring
family of England. He will probably

UnprngresNive   Vielorla.
The late decision of the Chief Justice
of British Columbia in the appeal from
A local Victoria magistrate iinent the
enforcing of a tax ou commercial travellers by a corporation by-law, has put a
new face upon this relic of barbarism,
the eommerical traveller's tax. His
Lordship quashed the conviction against
tlie appelant, not because he considered
tlie principle of taxing contrary to law,
but because the Act of the Local Legislature, under which, the conviction was
secured, did not allow of any discrimination as to tho amount of tax to he paid
by different classes of traders, and as
the local trader had to pay a tax of $50,
while the commercial traveller was only
assessed $10 for the half year, he was
compelled to quash the charge ou that
ground, while he admitted thnt the city
had a perfect right to impose a tax such
as tho conviction sought to enforce.
The result of this decision is that the
tax on commercial travellers in Victoria
is likely to bo raised to $50 a half year,
which will in most instances prove a
prohibitory tax. That a lax, which is
simply a relic of the old feudal dayB,
when civic governments "aped the overbearing of the nobles, bv imposing
tyrannical restrictions on local trade,
should be enacted and enforced in the
new Pacific province is a matter for
wonder. In a community of fossils and
bigots, such as the city of Quebec iB
largely supplied with, it would be uo
matter for surprise. Ideas of two bun-'
dred years ago have a firm hold there, j
But that a city council stupid and fossil-;
ized enough to impose a lax that pop-
uhir opinion wiped out in Great Britain'
a century ago, can be found in British
Columbia reflects adversely upon tho
progressive ideas of tho people of (hot

of more advanced views that sucii- nm-'

ideas of a past age, will have an ex-,

The StuileiiU of This limtltutlon Pass a
■favorable Examination—The Vubllc
Exercise** in the Opei-n House.
This morning at 10.30 the examination
of the high-school pupils under the care
of Mr. H.McIC. Strambcrgbegan. There
were present many Indies and gentlemen,
the clergy and the municipal board
being well represented in the persons of
Rev. Mr. Jamieson and Rev, E. Robson,
aud Aldermen Sinclair and Johnston.
Mr. Stramberg proceeded with the examination with as little delay us possible
and the display of erudition made by
his pupils is* the highest compliment
that could bo pain to that popular aud
effective teacher. The young ladies in
the class in, particular showed great
brightness and readiness in their replies,
although the boys made a fine showing,
After many departments of knowledge
had heen pretty thoroughly touched
uiioii several of the pupils read essays
of their own composition* Among the
young ladies who read those compositions were Miss Robinson, Miss Douglas, Miss Homer, Miss Ackerman and
Miss rititt followed by one by Master
Arthur Whiteside. These essayB were
surprisingly good and showed an amount
of intellect, brain, acumen that no one
could possibly have looked for in a bevy
of pretty young girls such as Mr. Strom-
berg's class undoubtedly is. The visitors were both pleased and astonished nt
the amount of knowledge thrown into
oaoh individual essay. To havo judged
which was the best would not only
have been exceedingly difficult but
positively impossible. The Rev. E.
Robson wns then cnlled upon for a
few remarks and in the course of
his speech he made a very encouraging
reference to the Messrs. Mclnnes who
were both present. He paid them a
well deserved compliment for tho noble
maimer in which thoy have upheld the
honor of their adopted Province in the
finest university in the great Dominion
of Canada. The elegant encomium was
fully endorsed by the expressions
of approval by all presont. The
rev. gentleman gave a most interesting account of the rise and
growth of the high school which ho was
mainly instrumental in founding. He
wished the pupils nil manner of good
things, prosperity, health and happiness and trusted that they would return
from their vacation with renewed energy
and fully re-invigorated for the duties
and studies of tlie next session,
air. Aid. Sinclair then spoke for
a few moments and eulogised the
students and thoir able teacher in warm
terms, Several other gentlemen were
called upon but the time had stolen
nway so pleasantly in the exercises of
the two hours, that they were reluctantly compelled to make,their excuses for
not speaking. Mr. Stramberg received
the hearty congratulations of his many
friends ou the successful issue of
his labors nnd the class dispersed to meet
in the Opera House in the afternoon.
AT THE Or&llA   HOUSE.
When the representative of The Col-
umhian "climbed the brow of mighty
Helvellyn" localized to spell Mary
street, and turned into Herring's Opera
House, he found that temple ot Thespis
and Apollo filled pretty nearly to the big
folding doors with a'vast audience of
ladies, bright, laughing, pretty children
in gala dressses and a fair sprinkling
of the sterner sex just to givo n sober
tone to the - gay scene. On the ample
stage in one grand shining phalanx was
grouped the tendor youth and coming
beauty of our Royal City. It was a
sight to gladden the heart of even Old
Diogenes and make him dance an Irish
jig on top of his lllthv old tub. In the
gallery a few wild spirits of juvenile proportions gathered and gavo a
free rein to their exuberant boyhood in
many a comical prank and laughable
trick. At the piano Mrs. Watson awoke
the strains of harmony in accompaniment to the children's thousand voices
blended into ono sweet silvery tone.
Mr. Watson, in his usual able manner,
conducted the singing and to him is
due the greatest credit for the
treat he and his charming vocal
orchestra provided. The exercises
began by the singing of Moody and San-
key's famous favorite hymn, "Precious
Jewels." The effect wus most delightful and gave one a very good ideaindecd
of what the poets call "tlie angel choirs
of highest Heaven." Nothing more
charmingly sweet could be Imagined than tho joyous voices of so
many beautiful children blending in one
grand sound of sacred harmony, nnd
more than one elderly eye wus moist before the sweet, pretty singers had finished. The chairman, Mayor Brown, then
called upon His Lordship Bishop Sillitoe
to address the children. His Lordship,
in his usual happy manner, spoke of the
pleasure it gave liim to sue so many
fresh innocent children betoro him and
to hear them sing so beautifully to-
together. He most emphatically
pointed out the inestimable value
of teaching tho children singing and
was glad to have this opportunity of expressing his thoughts ou this subject.
His LordBhip severely deprecated the
action of the Legislature in debarring
the clergy from participation in educational matters and advanced some
powerful arguments against such tt
system. He hoped the day would soon
conic when the clergy, who were so
much respected, would be allowed to take
a part iu didact it; science in this Province.
His Lordship wished his little lioarers
every blessing and was enthusiastically
applauded at the conclusion of his
speech. The children then sang the
beautiful hymn " Bringing iu the
Sheaves," and verv cleverly and sweetly
they did it.
Following this came the ''spelling
bee," which, after a most exciting contest was won by Mias Stella Grant and
Must or Gains Peck, who were duly presented with the prizes.
A recitation excellently done by
a pretty little Miss was most
henrtily applauded. The Rev, E, Rob-
sou then made an interesting address
and was followed hy Rev. Messrs.
IIaddon aud Jamieson. Tho prizes,
certificates and rails of honor
were thou presented to the successful students, Miss Robinson
carried off the gold medal presented by
His Excellency the Governor-general
Miss Homer won the modal this year
again, but by the rules was obliged to
waive her claim in favor of the next
highest pupil who was MisB Robinson.
All the scholar., seemed highly gratfied
as the coveted certificates and rolls of
honor were placed in their hands nnd a
prouder or happier band of little people
it would have been hard to find any where.
After a few amusing and complimentary
remarks hy Mayor Brown this highly
successful und pleasing gathering broke
up with the singing of "God save tho
Queen" hy everyone, standing.
, "The New Highway In the Orient" is
the title of a beautiful little work just
issued by the general passenger depart*
moot of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
descriptive of a tour to the Pacific coast
over tho trans-contiuunlal line. It i»
superbly illustrated with many full-page
engravings and its forty-five pages of

THE POLITICAL ROUND UP.
The result of tho elections on the
thirteenth is now public property. The
most tardy constituency lias been heard
from, and, with the exception of distant
Cassiar, which will have a little electoral
campaign all to itself some time after
the "dog days," it is said, the constitution of the sixth Parliament of British
Columbia, both ns to personnel and political complexion, has passed from tho
region of conjecture to the realm of ascertained fact. The following table,,
conveniently arranged, will show almost
at a glance who have been elected, what
constituencies each represent, and to
which of the three political divisions the
various members-elect belong. We
havo arranged the constituencies in n
general way, it will bo seen, according
to their importance, beginning at home,
and placing the cities first, O. standing
for Government, of conrBe, O. for Opposition, and I. for Independent:

Five and eight make thirteen, so it
will be seen that, leaving Cassiar out of
the count, theGovermnenthnsa majority
of six over the combined Opposition und
Independent forces. Should Cassiar go
Government, which is not at all certain,
the Government would, of course, have
a majority of seven. Should it go Opposition, the Government majority would
be reduced to five. The taking of the
Speaker from the Government sido of
the House will make the Government's
working majority, iu the one case six,
in the other four. This is the final and
absolute result, that in no event can the
Government count on a working majority of more than six iu the next House.
In the last House of twenty-seven members the only break in the Government
monotony was six lone Oppositionists,
thus giving the Government a clear, wo
might say, " thumbs-up," majority of
fifteen! And yet we have some silly
pap-fed organs, which appear to hove
lost their wits along with their honor,
proclaiming that tho Government hns
not been weakened iu the elections just
over! But what elso conld be expected
from those same organs, after the mendacity and self-stu Hi ilea tion which
characterized their course through the
campaign?
A second glance at the table above
will disclose some facts in connection
with the result of the general elections
even more significant than the figures
themselves. We have purposely arranged the most important constituencies, including the four cities ofthe
Province, first. It will bc seen, then,
that the four cities and the two important districts of Westminster aud Nanalmo, with u total representation of thirteen, only give the Government two I
Those six constituences mentioned contain the great hulk of tho population,
wealth, and commercial and political
interest), and influence of the Provinco
ut the present' time; so that, from an
impartial survey of the whole situation,
taking into account the actual figures
of the election returns, as well ns the
very important modifying facts called
attention to, and comparing the constitution of the new House with that of
the old, the conclusion is absolutely
forced that the Government holds its
position by u very slender tenure indeed,
nnd is wholly thrown ou its good behaviour, which is, perhaps, a good
thing for the Government; it undouht-
is for the country; for no Government
(composed as Governments are of "very
" human" mortals, to quote au expression of the Hon. Premier's) should be
so strongly entrenched behind a servile majority as to be able to do as it
likes, regardless of the public interests.
On the whole, we think we have very
good reason for congratulating the country on the result of the late Provincial
elections, and we confidently predict
that the tone and the legislation of the
next Parliament will exhibit lines of
marked and agreeable contrast to those
of the general run of its predecessors,
EMIN PASHA. ]
Edward Sciikitzeh, for that is the
correct name of the man known to all
the world as Emin Pasha, is a German
who has just entered his fiftieth year.
His mastering passion is love for foreign
travel, and for nine years he wandered
throughout the Turkish empire as an
attache to the stall of Hakki Pasha. In
1870 Schnitzer entered tho Egyptian
Medical Service, and served under General Gordon. In 187S that heroic and
chivalrous soul appointed Him Governor
of the Equatorial Province, and there
he remained until Stanley came upon
him and carried him back to civilization.
Ho took the name of Emin in order to
gain the full confidence of the Easterners.
Above all else Emin is a finished type
of the modern savant, A writer in a
recent magazine says of him: "Ho
"never can feel that politics are other
"than a disagreeable interruption to the
"much more important pursuits of
"beetle catching and bird collecting,"
Although a scientist, there is not in all
his writings a trace of anti-religious bitterness. Like Gordon, he is kindly and
good natured, "bat you always feel that
to him you are first and foremost an
anthropological specimen, whereas to
'Gordon you were a brother." Emin is
lacking in the sense of humor so apparent in Gordon. He has a heart, although above all he Ib the seeker after
scientific truth, no matter at what cost.
Although his letters are for tho moat
part wearisome reading for anyone but
a naturalist, he has a keen eye for landscape. HiB heroism is of the type of
Gordon. Long before Stanley reached
him he wrote: "The work which Gor-
'don paid for with his blood I will
'strive to carry on, if not with his energy and genius, still according to his in.
ten tions and in his spirit." As a ruler
he was a worthy disciple of the martyr
of Khartoum. He governed hiB province with firm yet kind discipline, he
equalized taxation, putdown corruption,
and had already, when rescued, placed
his grip upon the slave trade. Even
when deserted aud at bay, like Gordon,
he never despaired. He has all the enthusiastic admiration of Gordon for the
Chinese. "I cannot get over the conviction," ho wrote, "that, if it is possible for Central Africa to be opened
"up, it can only be accomplished by
"means of the Chinese." His opinion
of the negro is a low one.
When reached by Stanley, Emin's
position had become desperate. Power
had departed from him, and his own
troops were to all intent and purposes
his gaolers. His little daughter is the
one object of his devotion, nnd is carried
before him, where he can see her, upon
nil his journeys. Wiry and with a wonderful reserve force, he is animated as a
conversationalist and punctilious to a
degree. All through his inarch to the
coast ho insisted upon having a cloth
laid, with knives and forks, at every
meal. An amiable man, an accomplish
ed linguist (he speaks at least a dozen
languages, not counting those of the
African continent), courageous and in
trcpid, his great fault is his indecision
which, Stanley says, nearly cost him his
life. He iB going, if ho has not already
gone, back to " Darkest Africa," but it
is certain that his day is over, for his
eyesight is nearly gone. He suffers
from cataract in both eyes, and according to Dr. Parke he will be totally blind
two years from now.

JaptincHe seems to be a tolerably easy
language to learn, after nil. The following, under tlie heading of "Tlie Japanese Language in One Leuaon," is from
the Japan Herald: "'Ariium*' nieaiifi
everything. ' Ariinasen' means nothing.
Wakarintas' means to understand in nil
its moods, tenses, persons, etc. It iB ti
whole conjugation in one word. 'Wnk-
nrimasen' is the opposite of 'Walcari-
nifts.' 'Dekimas' means unlimited potentiality, past, present and future, and
can by mnde to express anything. It
also is a whole congugation in itself,
and can be applied to everything and
everybody (yourself included). 'Deki-
masen' means, of course, everything
that 'dekimas' doesn't mean. 'Ka' is a
vocal note of interrogation, nnd can be
tacked on to anything. 'Ano-ne' can be
thrown in anywhere to make conversation. After going through the above
course the student is competent to say
anything. When being spoken to or
answered it is advisable to exclaim Hoi
(long), hiti (medium), or lm (short),
which expresses surprise, wonder, assent, sympathy, absorbing- interest,
honor, in fact, the whole gamut of the
feelings, care being taken only to ejaculate it In a different tone every time
(minor scales preferable), with a varied
and appropriate facial expression, tlie
cue for which must be taken from the
face of the speaker. When the student
is not speaking, this word properly
played upon will keep the other rnaii
going all the time."
The Pennsylvania railroad has decided
to do away with the deadly car-stove,
nnd to apply continuous steam heat to
all of its 1,000 passenger cars, This
leaves only one eastern trunk Hue that
has not made this most necessary
change. According to the Engineering
News 7,301 passenger cars out of about
30,000 in uso in the United States are
now heated by steam pipes from the
locomotive. Ou 8,405 miles of line ull
trains worn thus heated last winter, nnd
on nt least 86,000 more miles this reform
will be effected by next winter. Nearly
two-thirds of the railroads in the
country are committed to tho change.
The terrible disaster nearly three years
and a half ago nt White Rivor Junction,
whtch resulted in thirty-eight human
beings being roasted alive, sealed the
fate of the" car-stove.

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, JUNE
27, 18iM>.
A REMARKABLE  GIRL.
She Can't Digest the Literary .Productions
ol the I'retient Dar.
There ta a remarkable young girl up
town, Bays the Woman About Town of
the New York Evening Sun. She ought
not to be so remarkable as sho Is, and
tbe very fact that ber reading habits are
worth chronicling is a sad comment on
tbe cheap and perverted taste for literature that is, alus! too characteristic of
the young people all about us.
She was recently asked if sho had read
a certain new society novel, of which
everybody was talking and ovor which
young women particularly grow warmly
enthusiastic.
She looked a little shamefaced as sho
replied: "No; I tried to read it, but I just
couldn't, and so I gavo it up." A discussion of books and writors followed in
which It transpired that the young girl
bad never read one of the Duchess' novels, nor of Hhoda Broughton's, nor of
Ouida's, nor of any of that school of English writors whoso heroines thrill, and
throb, and clutch, and hunger, as our
dear old autocrat would say.
"Nor Miss Alcott, nor Miss Murfee,
nor Honry Hayes, nor Marion Crawford?" was asked-
Sho lookod distressed, but shook her
head.
"Perhaps it is Howells, then, or Aid-
rich, or even Henry James?"
Still she shook hor head.
"Do tell mo, then, what you are por*
Ing over hours out of each day?"
"I have no business living In this
generation," sho answered. "I belong
to the past. I hardly know the names
of all these authors you havo been asking about. I read what my father and
mother did—Soott, and Dickens, and
Thackeray, and Bulwer, and Addison,
and Butler, and Macaulay."
"And no modern writers?"
"I've read George Eliot and George
Sand and a littlo of Balzac. I've tried
to read the present-day writers. I really
have. But I can't. It is liko trying to
drink Yin ordinaire with the flavor pf
Johannisborgor still on one's lips. 1
' would bear some book most lavishly
and enthusiastically praised. I would
send for it and begin the first few
pages. I seldom got further. It was
too much ot a wrench, and I would shut
the volume and go bad: to dear old
Thackeray, and Lamb, and Walter Sav-
ugo Landor, und the rest of the saints.
Tho first books I ever read were of the
old-fashioned kind; my father used to
read Dickons, and Macaulay, and 'Don
Quixote' aloud to us every night after
dinner, and I grew up in the companionship of these writers. Aftor that I
wus never ablo to form a taste for any
thing less. I do sometimes feel
ashamed when I hear people talking so
glibly about these new writers. I know
I ought to be up to date, and live in tho
century in which I was born, and all
that, but Z guesB I never shall."
MR.   LARKIN'S  JOKE.
Mark Twain and Bob Burdetto Outdone by
a Modest Young Man.
"I've got a first-class joke for ydu,"
romarked Larkin, cheerfully, as he
camo and sat on the corner of tbe
editor's desk, knocking soveral manuscripts into the waste basket.
"Havo you?" asked the editor, in
breathless anxiety.
"Yes, just thought ot it as I came in
on tho car, and as I know you are always on tho lookout for good things, 1
thought I'd come around and tell you before I forgot it. I'm awfully busy this
morning, too."
"Sorry," murmured the editor.
"Not at all! Don't mention HI Tho
oko was suggested by my seeing a man
.lick a dog three or four blocks away
Don't know why he kicked him, of
course. May lie tho dog snarled at him,
as dogB will, you know Fact is, there
are too many dogs—about !)0 per cent,
loo many, 1 should estimate. Now, 1
used to own a dog buck in tho 70's that
"Excuso me, but you are forgetting
your Joko," put in lho editor, apologetically. "I don't want to lose it, you
know."
"Of course you don't. You don't get a
joke like this every day. It's A
No. 1, now. And I'm busy, so I won't
keep you long. I expect you aro rather
busy yourself?"
"Well, yes, a little," replied the
editor, looking at the clock. "It's
nearly ten now. We have to go to preas
at twelve sharp."
"Then you won't be able to get my
joke in this issue?"
"I'm afraid not; but it will keep until
the next, won't it?"
"Oyes, I suppose bo; but I'm sort o'
anxious to see it in print. That's why
I ran around here to tell you bofore I
forgot It, notwithstanding I'm bo busy I
don't know what to do first when I get
to the store."
"But the joke," suggested the editor,
with one unxlous look at the clock.
"Yes, yes; well, this Ib it: When a
man kicks a dog be does it on purpose?
Pretty good, hey!" and Larkin jumped
off the desk and patted the editor between the shoulders with force enough
to dislocate a tooth.
"But I don't see the joke," gasped the
editor.
"Well, now, that's good! You'll laugh
when it dawns on you. Kick a dog on
purpose. See? P-u-r-p, purp, o-s-e, ub,
purpose; seo?"
"That is the correct way to spell the
word, but I would not divide the syllables In just that manner. P-u-r is tho
correct division."
"But that Is where the joke comes in.
P-u-r-p, dog; don't you seo?"
"No, I don't,    P-u-r-p doesn't spell
dog."
,    "Of courso not, but it means dog."
The editor shook his hoad mournfully.
"Do you mean to say you have never
beard a dog called a purp?"
"Never. When young, a dog is sometimes called a pup; but not a purp; at
least not by educated people."
"Well, I must go now, for I am afraid
I shall be lato,   I'll come In again when
' I think ot something elso roal bright,
whioh 1 very often do."
THE  NEW  OPERATOR.
[faa  Is Still Looking for the Coal That
Never Came.
"I remember when I was down In Las
LVegas somo years ago," suid an old-time
■ telegrapher to a Minneapolis Journal
■reporter, "the ofllce was short a press-
■report man. One day an operator, whose
Telethon hud seen better days, drifted In
bnd inquired if ho could find work.
iWhat kind of a-job do you want?' asked
Ihe chief.   'Are you a report man?'
JYch, sir,1 replied tbo new-comer, eon II-
I'ntly.   He was seated at the press
nre, and, taking a knife from his pock-
, leisurely began to sharpen a pencil,
9 while listening to the Instrument as
■clicked otf lho Items.   The operators
1 tlio room begun to wonder why tho
last man' did not begin to copy, and
Ihen ho asked a chock hoy whero thu
jit tor-cooler was, und had taken a drink
loin It, they thought tho now report-
perator was a 'good ono,' and was try-
ug to muko a record.   By this time tbe
fender at tho other end of the wiro wbb
trobably   fifty to   seventy-five words
Ehead, and while thoy knew tbat no operator In the world could copy that far
behind thought they must havo found a
holographic   phenomenon.    Then  the
f would-be pross man  asked where the
Lcoal-box was, picked up the scuttle and
Twont outside.   After waiting a few nitn-
f utos tho chief, who by this time con-
I eluded that tho operator was a fraud,
j stopped the sender.   The nbw operutor
I nevor returned, and It is supposed he is
still looking for  the coal    .

The True Ring.
Messrs. II. Morey A Co, laid on our
table this morning a new patriotic Canadian song entitled "Canada, land of
the Maple Tree." The words and music
are by Alexander Muir, B. A., and will
commend themselves to all patriotic
Canadians. The music is tuneful nnd
stirring, while the sentiment of the
verses is patriotic in the extreme, just
the sort of sentiment which should be
instilled into the minds of the rising
generation; and the accompanying
'music is of that stirring nature which at
once finds a place in the heart of tho
truly patriotic. Canada has long wanted
jnst such songs, and we nre glad to note
that the want Is being so ably filled.
Copies of the new song may be obtained
from H. Storey & Co,

facts, that Captain Rogers waB nbout to
withdraw the atodinor Dimaimiir from
tlie Westminster and Vancouver-Nnnni-
ino route, ou account of the reported
placing of a new steamer, the Catch, ou
the mute between Nanaimo and Vancouver. Captain Rogers hns asked
the correction of this misstatement by the Free Press, which
has not been done yet. The captain
authorizes us to state thut he hns not
the slightest intention of removing the
steamer Dunsmuir from her present
route, whether another bout is put on or
not.

Happily We title.I.
Five years ago Mr. G. A. Smith, the
well-known Warnock merchant, left his
home iu Scotland nnd came to America
to improve his fortunes. He left behind him the girl of his heart, a Miss
Roas, who had promised to become his
wife whenever Mr. Smith wns settled in
his new home and in a position to marry.
Mr. Smith first Visited the Western territories and finally came to British Co-
lumbiu, aud not long ago established iu
business at Warnock. Finding himself
in n position to bring his bride home, he
wrote the young lady and made her
aware of his readiness to receive her.
Miss Ross proved herself just as plucky
and brave as she had beeu constant, anil
undertook the long journey of OOOO miles
alone. On Wednesday she arrived safely
at Warnock nnd iu lesa than an hour
the happy pair found themselves man
and wife. Rev. Mr. Dunn performed
the marriage ceremony. The Coi.um-
niAN extends heartiest congratulations.
Signs of the Times.
It would appear that the demand for
high-class engravings and etchings has
become so great that our local dealers
in those nrtiBtic wnres have seen fit to
place rather heavy orders with eastern
firms for a large consignment of those
home-beautifiers. It is ti pleasure to
sec that the horrible "oil-painting
manufactory" daubs and the unspeakable chronograph and awful lithographs
are being steadily crowded out of the
houses of even our humblest citizens,
nnd their places supplied with masterly
copies of the must sublime works o'f
artistic genius. This speaks well for
the change that is coining- over the
people; when they scorn to have iu
their homes those vile conglomerations
of villainous color turned out by the
gross from German and Austrian factories, nnd demand a few good etchings
or engravings of the works of well-known
painters, it is u sign that refinement is
joining hands with pinched poverty and
that the legacy of coarseness bequeathed us by our beef-eating and beer-swilling ancestors, is fading out rapidly in
the light of modern advancement aud
education.

Supreme Court.
A case of considerable interest to renl
estate agents was tried in the Supreme
Court on Wednesday afternoon before
Mr. Justice McCrelght nnd a special
jury, between Joseph Brown, as plaintiff, nnd T. Martin, defendant. The
action wns to have an agreement carried
out to convey lot 11, block 5, iu this
city, to Brown. The agreement it)
question was made by Mr. T. J, Trapp,
us Martin's agent, acting on iusti uctlous
recolvcdby lotter from Mai tin. The
learned judge, however, held thnt Mr.
Trapp hnd not, under that letter, sufficient authority to make nn agreement
that would be binding on Martin, and
the phtintiir wns non-suited.
Somo complications have arisen about
thia property, owing to the fact thnt tho
plaintiff hnd previously obtained un
order in their favor through nn oversight in the registrar's office, where tho
very important notice thnt Martin Intended to defend this action, hnd been
passed over. On the strength of this
order, Brown has sold tho land to Mr.
Major at au advance of $1,500 to himself,
and Major hnd mnde n further sale to
Senator Mclnnes at an ndvnnceof $1,500
In his favor. Those Bales nre now, of
course, void. Messrs. Corbould, McColl A Jenns wore acting for Brown,
and Mr. F. G. Walker, for Martin.

LaxglryPhaiiue, June 24.—Langley is
once again leading the way in enterprise.
We have tbe best cheese 'factories,
dairies and creameries in the country,

people of the district Bee our products
and judge of their quality ami worth.
Well, we nre going to have an exhibition

will be a complete success in everv
way.
The Hon. John Robson is respectfully
requested to fork over some money for
road building. If ho will give Langley
tbe same municipal allowance as Delta,
the Government pocket borough, we will
be satisfied.
Mr, Morris, of Langley, is confined to
bed by rheumatism. He took a run up
to the Hot Springs for the good of his
health, but without experiencing nny
change for tho lietter.
The men working for the Government
on tho Yale road in this section fait to
obperve that the past election helped
them much. They were only allowed
two days work last week.
Mr. John Bois is busy hauling timber
for a large burn which he intends io
have erected before baying commences.
Crops nre looking extremely well except on the very low lands, where the
frequent rains had bad effect.
Mr. Riddle and Mr. D. Murray, of
Murrnyville, struck for the woods last-
week to " batch" it and improve their
farms. Johnny Ritchie has not got the
whole bush to himself now.
Haifa dozen new coiners from the
