SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Electric Vehicles,— Some five
years ago Messrs. Ayrton A- Ferry
showed that tricycles may be driven
by eleetrieity, but a new vehicle—
the electric dog-cart of Mr, Magnus
Yolk, seems likely to bo much more
suggestive of practically useful
ideas. In the experimental dogcart a one-half horse-power motor,
weighing forty pounds, gives a speed,
of nine miles an hour on asphalte
and four miles on soft macadam.
The accumulators, which might be
increased in other vehicles, furnish
current for a run of six hours.
Diaoiso in Sopt Places.—The
Poetsch method, lately applied to
making a tunnel under Stockholm,
has since been successfully employed
in Belgium in sinking a mining
shaft through some forty feet ol
moist sand, encountered at a depth
of about 225 feet. The process consists in freezing the troublesome
soft material, and then excavating
it like rock. In the shaft ten iron
tubes, about a yard apart and containing other tubes, were forced
through the sand to the ooal beneath,
A very cold liquid—chloride of
magnesium cooled by expansion of
ammonia—was then passed through
the inner tubes, returning by the
outer ones, when the sand was turned into a hard rock for more than
ten feet beyond the tubes.
Would Engubu.—The problem
of a universal language is not solved
by Volapuk, in the opinion of Prof.
A. Melville Bell, on account of the
difficulty of keeping in mind the
numerous endings which distinguish
number, gender, case, tense, mood,
etc. ' As a more promising system,
this eminent linguist recommends a
modified form of English for a world
language. English is free from the
objectionable innecti<jn8,'aitH St/ if
already reaching out toward universality. While the language must
remain substantially as at present,
a few simplifying changes would
better fit it for international use;
and if these were suggested by a
committee, consisting of one British
and one American member, Prof.
Bell believes that a simple and admirable tongue would be produced.
The Greatest op Creations.—
While the lowest estimate places
Sirius, the brightest though not the
nearest of the stars, as much as 50,
000,000,000,000 miles away from
us, "good authorities," says Mr. G.
P. Serviss, "regard the distance as
being not less than 100,000,000,000-
000 miles; in which cose the star's
brilliancy must be as much as 228
times greater than that of the sun!
And yet even Sirius is probably not
the greatest sun belonging to the
visible universe. There can be little
doubt that Canopus, in the southern hemisphere, is a grander sun
than Sirius. To our eyes, Canopus
is only about half as bright as Sirius,
and it ranks as the second star in
the heavens in the order of brightness. But while Sirius's distance
is measurable, that of Canopus is so
unthinkably immense that astronomers can get no grip upon it. If it
were only twice as remote as Sirius
it would be equal to two of the latter, but the probability is its distance is much greater than that.
And possibly even Canopus is not
the greatest gem in the coronet of
creation."
Insect Tillage.—The aotion of
earth-worms, as described by Darwin, is not the only animal work
that is being done in overturning
and breaking up the soil. Prof. N.
S. Shaler mentions that the operations of various other creatures appear to be quite important. In
America, some twenty or more
species of mammals burrow in the
forest, and overturn considerable
earth, though the quantity of this
is quite insignificant in comparison
with that acted upon by invertebrates. In the moist forests where
they abound, crayfish may bring to
the surface, over moderate areas,
material which may amount to a
complete covering two feet deep in
half a century. Ovor extensive districts, or at least throughout eastern
North America, the ants are evidently by far the most effective animal agents in preparing soil for
plant use, tho part they piny being
much greater even than that of the
earth-worms themselves. The latter are confined chiefly to cultivated
clayey fields, while the ants rapidly
overturn the soil material as well
within the forests as in the open
fields wherever that material is of
a sandy nature.

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
THE FRENCH NAVAL FORCE.
Paris, Feb. 7.—In the course of the
debate on the naval estimates in the
Chamber of Deputies. Admiral Krauts,
the Minister of Marine, stated that in
order to have a sufficient naval force
at home, it would be necessary to reduce the force abroad. The budget,
he said, provided for two additional
ironclad ships in the Mediterranean
and three in the English Channel. A ■
reduction of the naval expenditure
might be possible, but the question of
economy must be well weighed before
a final decision. The Committee on
naval estimates concurred in the views
expressed by Admiral Krantz.
BANK OF B. C. HALF YEARLY REPORT.
London, Feb. 7,—The report of tho
Bank of British Colombia for the half
year that ended on Dee. 31st, 1887,
shows an available balance of £31,184,
which the board of directors propose
to apportion as follows; £20,926 in
payment of a dividend at the rate of 6
per cent, per annum, and a bonus of
2*> per cent.; £5,000 is added to the
reserve fund, which will then amount
to £100,000, and £5,550 is carried forward. The dividend for Ihe past
three year, has been 8 per cent.
ITALY IN  ABYSSINIA.
London, Feb. 7.—The Italian gov-
erirmcn is adviseed that the Italian
troop, in Abyssinia will occupy Ailet
almost immediately, and begin an inland march from that point without
delay. Tho submission of the Ailet
tribes is regarded by those who know
littlo or nothing of the country occupied by General San Martans, as a
great victory, but others fail to see.
any other advantage than the doubtful one that may occur from the moral
effect of such a circumstance ou the
Chiefs'actions. The balloon service
adopted by the Italian commander has
proved tu be a great value for the purposes of observation, and ita enlargement is contingent merely upon the
arrival of additional apparatus.
SATISFACTORY TRADE RETURNS.
London, Feb. 7.—Tho returns of
the Board uf Trade for the month of
January, issued to-day, shows increase,
in tho imports by £9,760,000, and of
exports of £770,000, in comparison
with January, 1887. The statement is
generally sar isfactory, the only unfavorable feature being a decrease in the
volume of the cotton manufacturing
business, tho amount of raw cotton
imported and the manufactured goods
exported having been much less during the month of January than in the
corresponding month of last yoar.
NATURAL OAS EXPLOSION.
Anderson, Ind., Feb. 7.—A terrific
natural gas explosion, the third within
a week, occurred this morning at the
residence of T. M. Norton, proprietor
of the Anderson Brewery, blowing out
the entire front, completely demolishing the house, killing Fenton C.
Rogers, of Cincinnati, the bookkeeper,
who was sleeping in the front room
The explosion wu caused by a breakage in the mains of the Doxey Natural
Gas Co., and when Mrs. Norton went
to light tho gas an explosion took
place. The two daughters of Norton,
who were sleeping in a frout room
above, were not injured, and had a
wonderful escape, as tho room was
completely blown to pieces, Mrs.
Norton was severely binned and is in
a critical condition.
THIS MOBNINfi'S DESPATCHES.
SURRENDERED TO AVOID ARREST.
Cincinnati, Feb. 8.—A warrant was
issued this morning for tho arrest of
Win. Means, president of the Metropolitan National Bank, but before it
could be served Moans had surrendered.
AN OPERATION NEOBSSARY.
Berlin, Fob. 8.—Dr. McKenzie has
returned from Sail Heme. He finds
the Prince's larynx unchanged, but
thinks tracheotomy will be necessary
within a short timo on a .'count of the
swelling of the mucous membrane,
which causes some difficulty in breathing and which may load lo pari id
ohoklmr.
THE FRCIT9   OF   SIN.
Atlanta, G»., Feb. 8.—Early this
morning Bob Cloud, colored, way laid
his wife and another negro ranted
Phillips and fired with a shotgun, tnk-
iriK off the top of Phillips' skull and
killing him instantly. With the contents of tho second barrel he inflicted
a fatal wound on hiB wife. Cloud then
surrendered himself to the authorities.
MORE HORRORS OF THE BLIZZARD.
Plainview, Neb., Fob. 9.—Miss M.
Ruycc, the school teacher who lay on
the prairio all one night during the recent blizzard with three uf her pupils,
all uf whom died in her arms, had both
her foot amputated hore yesterday.
Her left arm was badly deformed by
large pieces of flesh dropping off, but
tho physicians say it will probably not
be necessary to amputate it.
ROVAL DEADHEADS.
New York, Feb. 8.—Henry La-
bouchore's London cable to the World
says: "I hear there have been ao-
enmonious discussions about the special trains so freely supplied last year
to royal visitors from abroad. The
Queen will not pay for them and the
treasury absolutely refuses to contribute a penny nnd tho guests themselves
nover thought of planking down their
railway fares. I suppose it will end
in the respective companies having to
write off the claims as bad debts."
Orders have boen reoeived at Ports*
mouth directing that the refits of the
royal yachts Viotoria, Albert and Os-
borne be completed by March 15th in
order that they may be in readiness
that day to convey tlie Queen to Cher.
bourg,
dilke's opinion.
London, Feb. 8.—Sir Charles Dilke,
whose judgment on foreign affairs is
considered second to no other Englishman's, thinks there is no immediate
danger of war. He says: "My view
is that the irritation caused in Russia
by the publication of the treaty will
be greatlyollayed by Bismarck's speech.
It is not unsatisfactory to Russia, it if
rather friendly to her. The weak spot
about Bismarck'a speech is that it
seems almost to invite Russia to attack
Turkey. He says practically the defense of Turkey is a question which
concerns Italy. He disinterest. Germany from the defense of Turkey and
lays it upon Italy alone. Therein is
hiB greatest danger to the preservation
of peace. I think a rush upon Constantinople is always possible. The
only thing that checks Russia is the
belief that Italy would then fight, and
a declaration of war by Italy would

Bunton, of Brooklyn, cousins of the Ute

BREAD OR BLOOD.
Shenandoah, Feb. 8.—Although tht
foreign miners have ceased their riotous
demonstrations, the coal company's and
and officials have not relinquished their
precautionary measures, aud there are
still on police duty at the mines 400
special officers snd citizens. The miners
are now determined to wage warfare
agafuBtthe company alone. Individual
colliers are working with their consent.
Nearly all outgoing trains carried away
women and children to places of safety.
There are fears that the crisis is at hand
and that there will be bloodshed within
the next 43 hours. A crowd of Hungarians and Polanders again paradM the
streets in the afternoon shouting "bread
or blood."   I .    re

ATTEMPTED MURDER,
San Jose, Cal., Feb. 8.—This morning S. A. Porter, foreman in tho street
csr stables, discharged a young man
known as Jim. Half an hour later
Jim entered the stable and stealthily
approached Porter and tried to ont his
throat with a razor. The men struggled and Jim cut Porter several slashes
across the face, one laying open the
ear, and inflicting several gashes on hit
hand. The would-be murderer escaped
and Porter is in a critical condition.
A   MAYOR   INDICTED.

Winnipeg, Feb. 8.—The annual re-
rrt of President Ashdown, read be-
'ore the Board of Trade, fiercely attacks tho Canadian Pacific road and
Dominion government. The illiberal
policy of the Canadian Pacifio Railroad, he said, had driven tens of thousands of Canadian settlers south to
Dakota. In conclusion he broadly intimated that a continuation of tht
present policy of the Dominion government might result in a strong movement towards annexation to the United
States.

MSMARCK's CONUNDRUM,
London, Feb. 8.—"Eminently reassuring," and " thoroughly pacific," such
arc phrases in which a portion of the En-
flisb press ilonote their appreciation of
'rince Bismarck's speech. AU molt
thoughtful journals, however, are as
much impressed by his reserve on essential point, as by his outspokenness en
others. Bulgaria is the spot where
European ice is thinnest. Bismarck
clearly considers it too thin to bear his
weight for he has uid what be thinks Is
likely to happen in overy quarter of the
continent where danger of hostilities Is
most remote, but ha hardly refers to
Bulgaria where the peace of Europe It
hourly threatened. Russia is little likely
to attack Austria inGallcla, but she may
at any moment turn her columns towards
the Balkans. The opinion among men
who are generally best informed, Is that
a secret understanding with reference to
Bulgaria exists certainly between Austria
and Germany, tnd perhaps between Austria and Russia.   .

Everybody will experience a feeling of satisfaction at the amicable
adjustment of the difficulties which
threatened to have interfered seriously with the coal mining industry
ut Naiiimo. Judging from the reports whiph have reached us, the
miners havo shown a great deal of
good -sense and moderation under
the circumstances, and Mr. Dmis-
niitii' seems to havo been anxious
only for tho welfare of those in bis
employ. The ■determination to exclude Chinese from the mines will
be commended everywhere, Tlie
employment of them has hitherto
been a cause of dissatisfaction to the
miners, whicli will now be removed.
It is said that Mr, Dunsmuir has
always been willing to dispense with
Chinamen if the miners would agree
not to employ them ns helps. This
they have now done, and the const
is entirely clear.
Wc hope the city council has
fully considered the resolutions
passed on Monday night respecting
the proposed new charter. That a
new charter might assist us in many
ways cannot be denied, but it may
also lead us into embarrassments
more serious than those under which
wc hnvo hitherto Ven laboring. A
scheme of this son, should not be
undertaken without the fullest lind
most exhaustive discussion: but we
are afraid that very few of our citizens at present have tire faintest
idea of tho sort of charter it is proposed to apply for. Tho motion
passed at last meeting, therefore,
ordering the charter to bo printed
immediately seems to us premature.
Would it not hnve boen much better
if the document had first been carefully prepared and presented in
some public way which would give
the people an opportunity to understand and discuss it i If the charter, is at all as longthy ns the one
obtained by the city of Vnncouv.r,
the cost of printing it will be a very
large sum; and if any considerable
changes nre found necessary after
the first printing, the second
copy may cost as much as
the fust. Wo aro afraid it
cannot be printed and ■ put through
the house for less than five or six
hundred dollars; and it is all the
more important that a measure involving such an expenditure should
be well considered and made us complete ns possible nt first. There are
a great many points which need to Ire
remembered, and we think it would
have been well if representatives
from the board of trade and from
the citizens had been given au opportunity to examine the document
carefully beforo it went into print.
From the spirit-manifested by the
peopleor Manitoba on the railway
question, it seems that nothing will
satisfy them but a heulthy competition. A proposal lately made by
the federal government, to abandon
disallowance in 1891, seems to have
been received with anything but
favor. So great is the dissatisfaction that it is said the whole conservative association of Manitoba is falling to pieces. Tho federal proposal
is said to be that on and after the
1st of May, 1891, that being the
date fixed by the C. V. R. contract
for the completion of the railway,
the government would cease forever
to veto railway charters granted by
Manitoba. In addition it is premised that the government will make
an appropriation immediately to
deepen Bed River from tho head of
navigation to the American boundary, and make the Assiuiboine navigable as far west as Brandon. It is
also agreed that the C. F. K. will at
once begin the construction of a
number of branches in Manitoba and
the Northwest. But the people of
Manitoba tire not content, apparently, to surrender the rights which
they believe to belong to tliem under
the constitution. It is very certain
that the federal government has
been exercising the veto power with
respect to Manitoba roads under a
false plea. It has been shown very
clearly that the C. P. Ji. charter
could not carry the veto power iu
provinces which existed at the time
it was granted. But the government
has been vetoing Manitoba charters,
not because they conflict with the
0. P. B. agreement, but because, it
is pretended, they are contrary to
. the polioy and interests of the country. - Now it is proposed distinctly
to abandon the veto power as soon
as the 0. P. R. gives its consent—
showing dearly that the veto has
been e*erciB6tl only in the interest
of tho 0. P. R. Having rejected
the proposals made by the federal
government, we presume the people
of Manitoba propose going on with
the construction of the Bed Biver
Valley Bailway Indeed it is stated
specifically that Mr. Greenway, the
new premier, will at once enter into
negotiations with the late contractors, Messrs! Ryan & Haney, for the
prosecutioh'of this work. But wo
pointed out yesterday that the
Northern Pacifio might be inducod
by the 0. P. R. to withdraw from
seeking Canadian trade. In suoh
an event it is not easy to see what
relief can he afforded, by the con
atruotion of the R. R. V. E. When
it reaches the boundary it will find
no outlet, and the ciroumstances
will become still more embarrassing
from the fact that a considerable additional expenditure has been incurred for nothing. There is only
ono hope left, nnd that is tho hope
that the (Iraiul Trunk, or some
of tlie other American roads/will
find an entrance into 'Manitoba,
When the Grand Trunk gets its
Sault Ste. Mario lino built, and gets
connection fiom Ste. Marie river to
tlie boundary, it will be in a position
to compete on very favorable terms
for the trade of western Canada and
the northwestern states.

for regulations compelling tbo ico companies to get their supplies where there
is no danger of contamination from tho
sewage of cities, would it not be more
si ..pie to follow a bit of advice which
writers on hygiene have often given ?
Ice, they say, sbonld never be placed in a
tumbler of water, but the water should
be cooled by placing the pitcher on ice
iu a small bucket or champagne cooler.
I, has been pointed out often enough,
too, that water thus cooled tastes much
better than ordinary'iced water, which
frequently has nn unpleasant flavor quite
apparent to a refined taste. For some
nnsteriouB reason, however, men and
women alike have always shown an ex-
Ir.roi'iiiiuiry iudiil'erence to tlie advice of
health authorities. They read it, approve of it, and then continue to collide
their noses against tire email

Chicken Stealing Begins.
Lust night brought the first intimation
of the approaching Chinese New Year.
Mrs. Armstrong, who resides on the
corner of Clinton aud Pelham streets,
found this morning that a dozen of her
fine poultry had been stolen during tiio
night. The stealing was done after midnight as the hens were known to bo safe
at that hour. The police were informed
of the occurrence and took the matter in
hand, but wero not successful in discovering the thieves, it being a very difficult
mutter to trace chickens when almost
every Chinaman in the eity has a flock of
his own. A sharp lookout should lie
kept over hen coops till tho fatal Now
Year's season is passed.

The Ilnoys ii ml Channel.
The snag-boat Samson relumed yesterday from the mouth of the river,
having finished tiie work of replacing
tho buoys which were swept from their
moorings by the ice. One of the buoys
that got loose from its moorings diift-
edasfur as Cowichan gap, where it
was picked up. Another of tlio buoys
ha-j disappeared, and nothing can bo
learned as to its whereabouts. Capt.
Grant says the inatlnssos sunk last
fall have stood the strain of tho high
water and Hunting ico without sustaining any damage, and from soundings
taken tho channel was found to have
deepened considerably. At low lido
there is 12 feet of water at tlie shallowest part of the channel, which would
give about 20 feet at Hood tide.
Another -t'ltlouy nt' I'lslirrim-ii,
Yesterday Mr. Thos. Mowat, inspector
of fisheries, received a letter from Messrs.
James Lowdon k Co., fish merchants and
ourors, Fraserburgh, Scotland, intimating their intention of undertaking the
settlement of a large number of Scotch
fishermen ii. this province. Tho firm
carries on a very extensive business,
having stations at no fewer than 10 different places in Great Britain. In the
letter it is intimated that a proposal lias
been forwarded to the government of
British Columbia respecting tlio colonization scheme, but we have no particulars
whieh would enable us to judge of ita
merits. Of the character of the men
who propose to eome out the writer says
they are of "a class not equalled in Grout
Britoin, all of whom arc hardy, fearless,
energetic men in the prime of life—men
ready to do anything or go any whore
where hard work and perseverance are
required." He further adds: *'I am
sure that such a colony, representing
nearly oOO people, has never been placed
at the disposal of any government." If
these people are an represented it is to he
hoped such arrangements may be made
us will result in their coming to this coast.
There is very littlo doubt that valuable
fisheries may be established all along the
coast of British Columbia, where fnr
more satisfactory results may lie obtained
than fall to the majority of the Hshcrmen
of the old counntry.

London, Feb. 7.--A deeper and
more careful study of Prince Bismarck's spooch fails tn reveal any now
light, and the opinion is general that
tho address may be regarded as a
specious argument in favor of tho personal plans of thu chancellor. Tho
astute German leader's assurances of
contingent peace certainly seem incompatible with his demnnd for incro
men,and money wilh whicli to arm and
equip them, and mature reflection over
his expressions of his pacific intentions
towards Franco and Russia fail to divest the in of their character as platitudes unworthy of a great statesman
earnestly desirous of averting war by
removing on the part of his own country every vestige of a cause therefor.
Reviewing the Prince's address, tho
St. James Gazelle is moved to remark
that the speech, as a whole, is very
mysterious, and the more ono reads
and pondors over it, Ihe more mysterious, it appears. 'Ihe prevalent
opinion of those who have studied the
German chancellor's langunge, says the
(nt.etle, is ono uf which the moat descriptive definition is thu word " biim-
boozlemont)" Tlie favorable consideration of tho emergency loan sought lo
be placed by Russia by a syndicate of
French and Dutch bunkers is a new
disturbing element, and will doubtless
Ve construed by the German press aB a
fresh menace tu Germany by the czar's
government, despite the inconsistency
that such a claim would display in view
of thu almost unanimous support given
by tho German newspapei'B to the military loan bill. Contrary to expectation, Austrian securities did not advance to-day, barely holding their advance of yesterday. The fact is undoubtedly due io the reaction following Bismarck's speech, which, in
Vienna as iu Loudon, appears to-dny
to convey le:*s p-sitive ussurances of
peace than it did yesterday.

"I have tested a package of Royal Baking Powder, which I purchased Id tlie
open market, and find It composed of pure and wholesome Ingredients. It ia a cream
of tartar powder of a high degree of merit, uud docs not contain either alum or
phosphates, or other injurious substances. E. G, Love, Ph.D."
•' It Is a scientific Iftcl that the Royal Baking Powder is absolutely pure.
.    "H.A. Mott, Ph.D."
" I have examined a package of Royal Baking Powder, purchased hy myself In
tho market. 1 find it entirely free fromnlum, terra alba, or any other injurious substance.      Hbnrt Morton, Ph.D., President of Stevens Institute of Technology."
" I have analyzed a pneknge of Royal Baking Powder. The materials of which
It is composed arc pure and wholesome..      S. Dana. Hayes, State Assuycr, Mass,"
The Royal Baking Powder received the highest award over all competitors at
the Vienna World's Exposition, 1873; atthe Centennial, Philadelphia, 1870; at tlio
American Institute, New York, and at State Fairs throughout tho country.
No other article of human food has ever received such high, emphatic, and universal endorsement from eminent chemists, physicians, scientists, aud Boards of
Health all over tho world.
Note—The above Diagram illustrates the comparative worth of. various Baking
Powders, as shown by Chemical Analysis aad experiments made by Prof. Schedler.
A pound can of each powder was taken, the total leavening power or volume fn
each can calculated, the result being as indicated. This practical test for worth by
Prof, Schedler only proves what overy observant consumer of tho Royal Baking
Powder knows by practical experience, that, "while it costs a few cents per pound
more than ordinary kinds, It is fnr moro economical, aud, besides, affords the advantage of bettor work. A single trial of the Roynl Bulling Powder will convince any
fair-minded person of these facts. , *    >
* While tho diagram shows some of tho alum powders to be of a higher degree
of strength than otiicr powders ranked below them, it is not to be taken as Indicating thut they have any value. All alum powders, uo mutter how high their strength,
are to be avoided as dangerous.
