Spreckcle, the sugar refiner, through bis

Sugar Trust, and against the Philadelphia refiner aud to his detriment to the
amount of $10,000 on each cargo he imported. He says, "I do not make a
specific charge against any officer of the
customs and I do not know a single individual having anything whatever to do
with tbe examination, or testing of sugars
in New York, but in face of the evidence
before me, I boldly assert that we have
been wronged. I call upon the honorable secretary of the treasury to protect
us in this matter."

'f rmilile Over Flugn.
Stkuiiknviuj:, O., June 20.—A riot
was prevented on Wednesday at the
small town- of New Cumberland, six
miles above this city, on the West Virginia side, by the decisive action of the
authorities. Eugene Robinson is the
owner of a show boat whioh moves up
and down the river giving exhibitions
at small towns. The boat while moored
at this village yesterday put up among a
lot of foreign flags the rebel flag. Inside
of ten minutes the whole village had
turned out. Aa the crowd was growing
menacing tlie town authorities waited
on the manager of the show and requested him to remove his flags. He
flatly refused at first, but after a long
discussion, during which lime the crowd
asked that the manager be brought
out and beaten, he consented aud
hauled the flags down, putting up small
flags of national colors.
Mount Sliiintn in Eruption.
New Yokk, June 20.—The Sun's
special from Reading, Cala., says: The
disappearance of Mount Shasta's peak
is still the eubject of discussion. At
tbe lower soda springs, .some 15 miles
distant from the mountain, the water in
the spring rose rapidly ou Monday,
overflowing the floor of tlie spring house.
A party that arrived from Pittsville yesterday said the mountain on tbo east
side indicates considerable commotion.
Large quantities of smoke and vapor are
rising.

not in tbe race. After the war Colonel
Ricketts bought llfty thousand acres of
woodlands on tbe mountain here for a
mere soflg. To-day he sold forty thousand acres of it to an English syndicate

ex-Attorncy-Geueral Palmer, left for
New York to-day and will sail for London to-morrow where they will complete
all negotiations. Itis understood that
Col. Ricketts will be elected president of

LANGLEY PRAISE ECHOES.
[From Our Own Correspondent.1
Tlie annual school meeting was held
at the school house ou the Hith inst. It
was a remarkable meeting in many
ways; for instance, not a word louder
than a hayseed was uttered. Mr. N.
Lartnon was re-elected • trustee by acclamation. This proceeding is looked
upon as a matter of reform.
Crops are suffering from tho wet weather, and the low lands have received a
set-back.
Langely Prairie electors felt rather
surprised at the election returns.
If a certain late candidate intends to
come before tbe electors of this section
again, seeking public honors, 1 would
advise him to bring a brigade with Min,
for if he comes single-handed he is
likely to he taken back home ou something sharper than horseback.
Nearly Escaped.
Sixo Sixo, N, Y., June 20.—Charles
Reese, a convict, made an attempt to
escape from the state prison this evening, Reese was sentenced in Brooklyn,
N. Y., on May 10th, 188t),toserve fifteen
years for robbery, and live yeara for assault, nnd occupied cell No. 100 in the
school gallery with Georgo Murphy,
another convict. When the men were
being looked up for the night and Keeper Jewell was counting the prisoners, he
saw two men, apparently, in the cell
occupied by Reese and Murphy. Ono
soemed to be standing with his back to
the keeper iu a stooping position with
one foot ou a chair, as if fixing hia shoe.
Keeper Jewell told this man to turn
around as the rules of the prison require
all convicts to face the keeper when being
locked up for the night, The figure did
not move, and Jewel made an investigation. He found that it was a dummy,
and that tho convict's outfit including
trowsers, coat, vest- aud shoes had beeu
used to muktt it. Tho trowsers and
coat had been cleverly stuffed and
keeper Jo well promptly notilled Deputy
Warden Connaughton and a search for
Reose waB begun. Ho was finally found
under a bench in the shoe shop and
waB locked up lu a dark cell. Murphy
will also be placed in a dark cell tomorrow. Rceae will forfeit threo years
which would have been taken off his
aontence for good behavior.
Swi.dl»l_ Int.,
Nbw Yokk, June 20.—-The Xorwoigan
bark Nomen, Copt. Pons, arrived from
Breoig, Sweden, to-day. Sho brought
a cargo of 98(1 tons of ice, and more is
coining from the same place. Breoig,
whoro the ice waa harvested, is a little
village where labor is cheap and the
cost of harvesting Binall. Freight rates
mo vory low, as trade is not brisk from
places like Breoig to this imrt, and
shippers nre glad to get a hold full of
any tfargo. The ice will save them from
coming over in ballast.

with the remains, an iron spoon eight
inches long, several tin boxes of wax
matches marked Loudon, now empty,
and a tin box of wooden matches still
holding its contents, a small oval look-
ing-grass frame, and a small reel of
cotton. It is not the usual way of burying Indians, and if a Cbinanuiu, why
are not his remains iu the Flowery?
The curios are lying on tho bunk.—

A   Smuggler ('iiiUnred.
A Port Townsend despatch, dated
June Hith, says: Tied up alongside the
sloop Annie at the custom house wharf
is a sloop of about four tons burden.
She was towed into port laat night by a
custom house aloop, having been captured in the Straits of Georgia Saturday
night. The authorities have suspected
for some time that a baud of smugglers
have beeu making Bulimia Island, which
ia in British terntorv, their headquarters, and a aloop ' b inspectors on
board has been out ever since the 5th
instant watching for suspects. Saturday
night two sloops were sighted in the
straits, going in the direction of the
United States. Tho Annie gave clinse
and brought the vessels to a standstill.
The sloops were manned by Japanese,
who offered no resistance. A close
search disclosed nothing of a contraband
nature, and one sloop waa allowed to
proceed to Whatcom, where the Japs
aaid they wero bound, but the larger
vcsael was taken in tow by tho customs
officers. Tho vessel captured is owned
by a colored man named King, who lives
iii Whatcom, and who is known to be in
league with smugglers.
King's vessels are unnamed and are
engaged in smuggling into British Territory contraband goods of all kinds.
There are three other vessels engaged in
illegal operations. Those vessels do
thoir travelling by night and are seldom
seen In the daylight. A test case will
bo made to ace if a vessel, even though
under tonnage, can go into a foreign
port without cloavinjJ. nt the custom
house. Saturna island is a regular smugglers' rendezvous. Being so near to
Sucia island, whioh belongs to the
United States, it ia ft favorite resort for
violators of the customs laws. Four
white mon are known to be interested
hi smuggling operations, nud their buntB
do work regularlv plying from this side
of tlte lino to British territory. The
men, who are all known, are being
closely watched, and will be brought to
justice sooner or later limes., the
abandon their illegal pursuit.
POLICE   COURT.
(Before T.C. Atkinson, 1*. M.)
William McDonald made a terrible
'disturbance on tlie streets yesterday
evening. The specific charges against
him Merc for being drunk and disorderly, using obscene and blasphemous language and obstructing and assaulting
the police in discharge of their duty.
Ou the latter charge he wus fined $15,
or in default one mouth's imprisonment
at hard tabor. On the other two charges
McDonald was remanded for a few days.
When taken to the notice station last
night it took the combined efforts of
several policemen lo control McDonald.
Tbe prisoner bit and snapped likea mad
! dog at the handcuffs ou his wrists. His
j language is described ns having been
j very bad. On the whole William is
quite cross when he gets fuddled with
whiskey, and is far better not meddled
with by any ordinary man.
Cioy Gum and Boo Kim, two Chinese
women,   were charged   with  keeping
houses of ill-fame.   The  police made a
raid on the Chinese quarters yesterday
and captured the  two  prisoners aud
three frequenters.    The two women
pleaded not  guilty, but the evidence
showed the contrary and they wore fined
$25 and42.50 costs each, or one month's
imprisonment.

Dirni.iN, Juno 20.—Tbe children attending tlie convent school in Tipperary
refused to-day to enter the building unless the children of the constabulary
were expelled. Five hundred children'
of uatiouafiats thon formed a procession
ami marched to the scliool house with
banners lo request the removal of the
obnoxious children. This demand being

till they were finally dispersed by the
police.
instead of being called upon to intone «
doleful jeremiad, be could cheerfully
sing a psalm of praise in honor not onlv
ofthe happy outcome of the Anglo-
German negotiations, but of the Premier
who had made the result possible. Continuing, Mr. Stanley said that the realization of the great dream of those who
had been nud were engaged in the- work
of exploring and civilizing the African
Continent from the Cape of Good Hope
lo Cairo, now became a possibility.
" God," he added, " had given the Premier the wisdom to net to this end, and
long might he live nnd flourish.*'
Imperial   rnrllament.
I.onoon, June 19.—In tlie House of
I-ords to-night Earl Roseberry enquired
if tlie Government, before arranging for
the transfer of Heligoland to Germany,
had consulted the naval and military
authorities, and also if the inhabitants
of the Island had been consulted, Lord
Salisbury said that the Government had
the assurance that the Island would not
be used by Germany exclusively as
a naval or military station. He also
thought that the transfer was satisfactory to the inhabitants.
In the House of Commons Mr. W. H.
Smith stated in reply to a question regarding the transfer of Heligoland to
Germany, that conditions bad been ill-
sorted in the agreements which removed
the inhabitants. Tbe bill, he said,
would be introduced to ratify the cession. Mr. Smith was asked to produce
the opinion of the naval and military
authorities concerning the transfer, but
refused to do so.
The House having gone into committee on the Licensing Bill, the chairman
moved that the first clause, applying
£350,000 to the purchase of licenses,
stand ns pint of the bill. Mr. Stovey
did not resume his speech, which was
interrupted on Tuesday, and the question was put without debute. A division waa taken, and the clause was carried by the narrow majority of four, the
voteboing228 to 224. The Conservatives cheered tho result, but their
cheers were drowned by tho triumphant
shouts of the Opposition ut tho narrow escape of the Government.
Mr. O'Connor declared that the
result indicated the decision of the
Houae against the bill and moved tu report progress. The Government ought
to be allowed a chance to reconsider its
position. Mr. Smith said that the Opposition certainly had the advantage of
a surprise, whatever that amounted to,
and they could have the credit of it. Mr.
Stovey said that he had not finished his
speech when the debate was last adjourned and it was thought that he
would continue. Therefore, the Government had not been prepared for au im-
CORRESPONDENCE.
A tkii' to I'oitr i>oh;i,as.
Editor Columuiax—Sir; On Saturday
last I went up to Douglaa by the atr.
Delaware, and in many respects hnd a
moat delightful trip. Still thore were
not a few passengers who grumbled, and
grumbled loudly. I must say I think
they had some cause; so'far as the
captain and his crew were concerned, I
have not one word of complaint to make,
indeed the magnificent way in which
the lioat was handled formed no small
part of my enjoyment of the trip. It
wus worth going all the way there and
back to see the vessel come down
through the railway bridge across the
Harrison. Saturday week there will be
n moon and it will be almost full. Last
Saturday there was no moon, and as if
to make up for it there was a heavy
canopy of cloud, a cold wind and a* very
good imitation of rain at times.
Now, Sir, the whole of my grievance
may be summed up in tho point that
you cannot take unlimited freight on a
mensure trip. When you have a number of ladies on board,'expecting to get
to a dance at 9 o'clock, it is no compensation to them to find that tbe steamer
has been delayed two hours-and a half
to laud 50 cents worth of freight here
and 30 cents worth there. The passengers are cold and hungry, more fit to go
to bed, perhaps, than any thing else.
There is one other point; don't waste
time taking on odd cords of wood where
they can be got. Let it .be distinctly
understood that the steamer starts at 2
p. m. sharp; let her havo plenty of fuel
aboard to make the run right through;
and, finally, let it be understood, that
she takes no freight except it lie for one
or two of the chief landings where she
is certain to atop, say Port Haney,
Langley, Chilliwhack aud Harrison:
nnd no bricks at Port Haney. She will
then reach Harrison easily between 7
and 8 o'clock, in time for a dance; and
should the present wretched weather be
at an end, as we may well hopo will be the
caso, Harrison Lake will be like a Para-
disc on earth.
Don't omit the chance of trip up to
the lake and the good steamer Delaware
will reap a rich harvest, as she well deserves. I am, Sir,
Yours truly,

Kimtok Columdian .—Str:—I have attended one or two political meetings
lately and have heard a good deal of
tulkee talkee. Amongst other subjects
that of the Chinese labor question has
been touched upon, and I ventured once
to make some observation; when I was

Stovey thought Mr. Smith was never
satisfied. Long speeches he regarded as
obstruction, and nospceches were taking
tho Government by surprise. In producing the Licensing Bill, he said the
Government would discover that the
people of the country would supriae
them. Mr. Gladstone advised the withdrawal of the bill. Mr. O'Connor withdrew his motion, and the House proceeded to discuss the second clause.
Tho scheme of the Oppsilum in securing the vote, while the Conservative
benches were sparsely occupied, completely surprised the Ministerialists, although they greatly feared defeat.

I ask of those who did understand it, or
imagine they do, one or two questions,
tho replies to which may somewhat enlighten my ignorance.
There is a tax of so much it bead on
every Chinaman who conies iuto British
Columbia from the Pacific. How much
of that tax remains in British Columbia
and how much goes away to the rest of
the Dominion? Suppose the tax is $60;
can it be shown that |5 remains hero?
Thon, we heard from Sir. Corbould
that the population of Quebec is, roughly speaking, quite ten times that of this
Province.   Are there

THE DAILY COLUMBIAN
ElirilAY  EVENING, JUNK 20, 1890..
AFTER THE ELECTION.
Tor last, election, ordinarily speaking,
of what has been a very busy and interesting election season is ovor. The
returns are all in, and the result places
Mr. Corbould at the head of the poll by
the large majority over tbe next
highest candidnte of 270 in a total vote
of 2018, nearly every rural portion of tho
District, ns well as the two cities, giving
an unmistakable expression of their approval of tho popular candidate. This
is eminently right and proper, and must
l»o as gratifying to the successful candidate us it is creditable and will prove
beneficial to tlio District at large. What
is worth doing at all is worth doing
wop, and since the electors have dig-
erneil in Mr. Corbould the Itpat mm
of tlie three for their representative, it
is well both for him and themselves
that they have strengthened his hands
by such a handsome und general expression of confidence. Even with three
running, and Messrs. Townsend and
Ladner being both popular men personally ," and having a considerable following for various reasons, it will he seen
that Mr. Corbould came within less than
a hundred of receiving half tho total
number of votes polled. Mr. Corbould
is thus the unmistakable choice of the
whole District, and not of any faction,
party or class. This fact is proved .by
the figures of the ballot boxes, and it
cannot fuil to give our member elect a
standing nnd a power nt Ottawa, which,
coupled with his personal abilities
and talents, will do much to further the
interests of thia important District thnt,
owing to unfortunate circumstances,
haB been practically unrepresented for
about two years past, and hns suffered
not a little accordingly. Wo are convinced that the many, varied and important interests of this, tho banner
District of the Province, will not suffer
in any respect in Mr. Corbould's hands,
and while the two defeated candidates
aro estimable gentlemen in many ways
we are happy to congratulate the electors upon having mado the wisest
choice, and Mr. Corbould for the handsome voto which ho haa polled throughout the District generally.
SOMETHING LEFT OUT.
The Colonist is wrestling with the
"single tax" ideas which came to the
front to a certain extent during the elec'
tion in Victoria, but it does not seem to
get all of its argument into one article.
For instance, it says that if one man
takes a watch or a horse belonging to
another man, the taker is n thief, which
is true enough; but when it adds that a
Government taking n man's land would
be a thief, it seems to be talking without sufficient thought, so far as the
principle of the thing goes. Does the
Government steal when it takes our
land (or the product of our land, which
is the same thing) iu taxes and other
dues? and. if it does, why does the Colonist support the N. P.? And did tho
United States Government steal when
it took the slaves from the Southerners?
For that matter, does the Govorninent
steal (or murder) when it takes from a
man the most valuable of all his possessions, his life, to wit? It seems to us,
although we do not profess to thoroughly understand "single tax," thnt our
venerable cotemporary had better sit
down and scratch its head and think a
bit about the rights of Governments and
individuals and communities, before it
wiggles its little pen any more on this
question. ^^^^^^^^^
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
aigued to prevent this by besmirching
his character and creating nn irreparable breach between him and the Emperor.
Tlie recent session of the Scotch-Irish
Congress suggests the fact, not generally
understood, that a great many races
may be found in Ireland between which
there has been little assimilation. In
Ulster, of course, there is a large English element, which has preserved its
purity of blood perhaps even more carefully than the English of England.
Along tho north-eastern const are to be
found numerous descendents of Lowland
and Highland Scots, white in tho southern portion of the island there is a population having a strong Iberian strain;
and here and tbere nil over there are
Irishmen who nre half Celtic and half
Anglo-Saxon, and right good Irishmen
they arc, too. Ethnologists alao claim
that there are Welsh-Irish, Danish-Irish,
nud, of course, pure Irish-Irish. Even
the Irish brogue is more English than
Irish, for it is said to bo largely a survival of the old West of England form
of speech, which hns long ago become
obsolete iu England .itself.—Ex.
It is rather suggestive, remarks un exchange, to find a stalwart old Liberal
paper like (lie Montreal Witness coming
out squarely against the Meicier Government. The reasons assigned for tho
action are contained in the following remarks: "Mr. Mercier haa imitated and
adopted the corrupt methods of Mr.
Chapleuu and Sir John Macdonald. He
does not care how much of the public
money he spends, or how deeply ho runs
the people into debt, as long as, by extravagant and corrupt expenditure, ho
maintains himself in power. Just as
Sir John Macdonald I*-*-** wiocui.ih.iui-
encies with railways und post offices nnd
harbors aud other public works, bo Mr.
Mercier bribes them with railways and
bridges and school grants and immunity
from the payment of their municipal indebtedness to the Province. The corruption which has surrounded public
contractors and their claims for 'extras'
ia of a piece with the Pacific scandal and
with the manufacturers' election funds
of the Dominion Government, but they
nre rather more shameless." Tho Witness concludes by supporting Mr. Tail-
Ion, the Opposition leader. Nevertheless, ns our renders nre aware, the Mercier administration has been returned
to power with a good majority. Politics
and political methods, it must strike one,
are very much the same east and  west.

People have been married itndor all
sorts of circumstances, but it. was left to
an Indiana couple to be married ou the
run, just as thoy crossed the State line,
pursued by an irate father, and accompanied by a short-winded justice, who
fell down fogged out just as the magic
words were uttered. Marriages made
in haste are snid to have been repented
at leisure, but it is to bc hoped that
this sprint-race matrimonial venture
will disprove the adage.
Mr. Stanley relates that one day
while conversing with u friendly tribe,
during his recent travels, one of the
chiefs present inquired how many wives
lie possessed. Upon Mr. Stanley innocently replying that he had none, nil
those present stood up like one man,
and unanimously exclaimed: "What a
Bplendid liar I" They Intensely admired the apparent calmness with which
he hod, as they thought, tried to pass off
nn them n wondrous traveller's title.

WORKING THE TAILOR.
-ri(l__l Scheme or a PllU-delphU SwIii
dler to Obtain a Salt of Clothe..
An ingenious swindle was reoontly
worked successfully upon a Chestnut
itreot druggist and a Chestnut street
;allor, says the Philadelphia Inquirer,
rhe criminal was a young man of lntel-
lgent address, whose somewhat shabby
rlothes were crushed clean and his
roots polished. Entering the pharmacy
io informed tho proprietor that the
ailor, whose name he gave, was suffer-
ng with dyspepsia, and had requested
hat some modioine be sent to him.
the druggist ordered a prescription, and
'bile it was boing compounded en*
ered into a ohat with the stranger, who
aid for the bottlo ot modioino, and,
etore taking it away, askod the drug-
ist to havo anothor vial ready, and
aid that the tailor would oall for it in
day or two. Then the swindler went
_ tho tailor and ordered a suit of
lothes, tho price of whioh wos fifty
ollors. Ho wonted tho garments
lode up in a hurry, and they
ere ready for him two days after-
ard. Bo put them on in tho storo and
ift his back-number suit to bo sont to
fictitious address. "Myfriond," ho
rid to the tailor (giving tho namo of
ie druggist) "has somo money of mino,
id if you will walk down thoro I will
ly tho bill." Tho tailor ond tho artful
idger reached the pharmacy. "I por-
dvo that wo aro all acquainted," tho
irlndler sold as thoy shook hands.
Slow,"   ho   continued,   spooking  to
;e druggist, "givo Mr.  what I
ft horo for him and excuso mo
r a moment." With that ho sllppod
Lt of a side entrance and tho druggist
indod tho tailor a vial wrapped in tho
stomary whito paper. "What do I
rnt with this?" asked tho sartorial
tlst. "That," responded tho master
the pbarmacoparnia, "is what your
.end said you wero to got here." "Not
alll" tho tailor ojaculated. "I undor-
>od that you hove tho cosh for the
rthos that ho got Irom mo." Thoy
rred each othor in tho faco for thirty
londs and mado a simultaneous brook
? tho door tlirough which tho mutual
end had disappeared. But he was not
sight.
H0 Hell Nothing to H.J.
_ well-known society girl had a queer
jorienco with a midnight marauder
t long ago, says the San Francisco
amlner. Sho was awakened at about
.o'clock in the morning by a noise
her room. Sho is a plucky littlo
ng, so sho sat up and said: "Who's
ire?"
lo answer.
'Who's thero?" she demanded again.
Silence was tho only reply.
Why don't you speak?" she orled,
■vously.
I ain't got any thing to say," camo
meek tones from the would-be thief,
Ire hurriedly slid out of tho door.

A alight squabble of a llstic nature
took place last night during the election

whether William Patterson or somebody
else still remains a mystery. The police
were not present on account of their
probably being somewhere else.
By ii report in one ol the Toronto papers of the recent law school examinations, we notice that Messrs. T. R. E.

honor, being well up iu their class.

The  My-Election Result). In a Complete
Victory   for   Nr. Corbould   by an
Overwhelming Majority.
The result of the Dominion by-election yesterday waa somewhat of a surprise, not that Mr. Corbould's defeat
was expected, but that his majority
should be so targe after the action of the
labor associations of Westminster and
Vancouver in throwing the whole
weight of their voting power in Mr.
Townsend's favor. That this action had
not the desired effect will he seen by
the returns below, which show that
Mr. Corbould headed tlie polls in both
cities. At all the principal trailing
places throughout the District, with the
exception ol Delta and Itichmond,
where Mr. Ladner swept everything before him, Mr. Corbould was given handsome majorities, making it clearly manifest that he waB the prime favorite in
both country and City. The result of
tlie election gives great pleasure to Mr.
Corbould's friends, who worked hard on
his behalf and felt confident of victory.
Generally throughout the District the
news of his election was received with
satisfaction. Following is the result of
the voting.

A Chilliwack Klopeninnt..
The only daughter of Mr. Geo. Ban-
ford, of Chilliwack, has eloped with a
man named Bromley. The pair were
married at 5 o'clock in the morning by
the Rov. Mr. Ross, of Chilliwack. Mr.
Ba.ifimi wa& opposed to the marriage
and had forbidden the young man to
visit Ids house, but correspondence was
maintained between the lovers, with the
result thut au elopement was arranged
and successfully carried out. The young
lady wns engaged to n well-to-do farmer,
and would have been married iu a few
days. Mr. Banford is incensed at the
action of his daughter, and will take
legal means to separate the couple, the
young lady lieing only 17 years of age.
Tlio matter will probably be ventilated
through the courts.
A Narrow Kficape.
Ycaterday afternoon a young man
mailed John Files, who Uvea in the
western part of the city, waa putting n
cartridge in tho breech of his Winchester
rifle, and by Home means the needle
(struck the cap before the cartridge was
' proporly placed. The cartridge exploded and lho ball flow upwards pier
cing Files' lower lip, grazing the front of
liis iiobc and then going completely
through tho ceiling and roof. The brass
cartridge-case also flew back and a largo
niece of it tore into the unfortunate man's
lip, whore it stuck, com pictely embedded
in thu flesh. Files' eyes were completely filled with the burning powder and
Bresented a shocking spectacle. Dr.
fall was immediately summoned and
was speedily on the spot. The doctor,
by the uso of cocoainc, was enabled to
work at the injured eyes and found them
in a terribly torn aud damaged condition. Many of the unbnrncd grains of
powder were burled deep in tho tough
i inetnbrano, known nsthewhitooftheeye,
and had to be picked out singly with
the sharp point of a lancet. The doctor
aaya It is the worst caso of accident to
the eyes he ovor saw, and it ia doubtful
if Files will recover the use his sight
again. The doctor, however, is hopeful
that this may ho accomplished. Every*
thinu that science nnd skilful surgery
can do has heen dono for the unfortunate man, nnd he is now progressing as
favorably nr. can he expected under tho
circumstances. Tho cartridge which
caused the accident was a large one, containing a twenty grain charge of black
Siowder. Files had a very narrow escape
or his life, as, if tho ball had gone half
an inch further in, it would havo pierced
his brain. The unfortunate victim suffered terrible agony from his burned
eyes aud the jagged fragment of brass
in his lip.

CELEBRATING  THK EVENT.
After it became known that Mr Corbould's election was certain his committee made immediate preparations for
giving him the usual triumph. The
City Band, which was in readiness for
tho event, came forth accompanied by a
little army of torch-hearers. Mr. Corbould, tbe successful candidate, was
Slaced in a carriage, iu which wero
[essrs. Punch, T. Shannon and W. II.
Keary, and the procession moved on to
Columbia street, headed by the baud
and followed by n large crowd of enthusiastic electors and others. Great
cheering and applause wero kept up
along the line. A stop was made opposite the Colonial Hotel and Mr. Corbould briefly thanked the electors for
giving him such a handsome majority. This showed what the
farmers could do; they had done nobly
iu placing him at the top of tho poll.
He would make it his special busiuess
nt Ottawa to work hard in the interests
of Weatminster City and District.
Mr. Punch then suid ho was heartily
iu sympathy with tho electors in placing
Mr." Corbould where they had. The
procession then proceeded to The Columbian office whero a halt was made
and cheers given for that paper. Thon
tlie crowd went around the comer and
halted in front of Truth office and cheers
were also given for that sheet. Ono of
tho staff mounted a pile of cord wood
and made a few remarks which caused
much amusement among the audience.
The Hue of inarch was then taken to
the Drill Shed, where the procession dispersed. -

clubs will take place. The Vancouver

to-morrow's match will tell whether or
not the Royal City men nre going to
take the lending place iu the series of

Untamed Steeds,
One of the most animated scenes thai
has taken place on the 0. P. X. dock iu
a long time happened on Wednesday
afternoon, when some " Voting, untamed, unbridled colts, fetching mad bounds,
etc.," wore taken away. One ofthe
colts was placed in charge of a Chinaman, arid the way the brute waltzed
John all over the place created more fun
than a first-class circus. John cursed
nud swore until the air was yellow with
Celestial expletives; the colt executed a
beautiful pus mil on his hind legs, the
Chinaman dangling at tho end of tho
halter howling maledictions as if his
heart would break. The colt came down
on nil-fours and gave John n gentle
swing round in a circle oil'his feet,
bringing up with a jerk and again hoisting him into mid air at the end of tlio
halter. John's efforts to kick the refractory colt in the stomach
were productive of - screeches of
laughter from the spectators, and
his face was a study iu seventeen
colors. Finally the gentle equine decided to stop "being excited anil submitted to be led off by the indignant
celestial, who cordially cursed Iho animal all tho way up the street, punctuating ench resounding oath witli a vicious
tug at the halter. Another of tlie colts
had to be lassooed and severely choked
before tho halter could be put upon him.
The young brutes were as obstinate
as army mules, and the wny they lushed
out behind witli their feet was sufficient
to carry awe to the boldest heart. The
animals came from some ranch  up the
Clever Police Capture.
Some days ago Chief Pearce received a
letter from Superintendent Sheppard, of
Victoria, notifying him that two notorious Victoria jail-birds, named respectively Sawyer and Craigic, had committed n
robbery in Victoria, stealing a large sum
of money, nnd n number of valuable
rings. Supt. Sheppard said tho men
hud gone to Nanaimo and might he expected to visit Westminster, and warning tho chief to look out for them. Mr.
Pearce made the facts known to his subordinates and a vigilant eye was kept
open on all suspicious-looking strangers.
Yesterday Officer Sawyer met a man on
tho street whom he felt sure was one of
the robbers, aud, stepping up to him,
enquired " Hello, Sawyer, when did you
como to town?" Tho downy ono wns
rather taken aback and made somo
shuttling nnswer. The officer then asked where Rawyer'B " pal," Craigie, was
and from somo hints dropped hy the
prisoner it was known that Craigie was
in hiding somewhere. Olllcer Sawyer
then took his name-sake to the lock-up.
Evory officer in the force then
sot to work, tooth und nail, to discover
the whereabouts of the missing'thief.
To Officer Carty belongs tho credit of
arresting the fellow. He was found in
a tent in a Si wash encampment below tho Crescent early
this morning, and was somewhat
surprised when ordered to como out and
inarch to the police station. Immediately after tho capture of Sawyer last
night bv Officer Sawyer, who, however,
is nn relation of the prisoner's, Chief
Pearce telegraphed Superintendent
Sheppard to the effect that one of the
"wanted" men had heen captured, A
reply came back that a Victoria officer
was coming up on the Islander thin
morning and would he in the city to
take the prisoner back to-day. The police of Westminster deserve the greatest

SCRAPS FROM   THE SEA.
A maciiini: for taking soundings has
been invented which does not require
that the vessel be stopped for the work.
The latest addition to the British
navy, the Victoria, is said to be tho
largest war vessel at present ready for
active service. She cost ovor SI,000,000,
and carries a crow of 580 officers and
men.
Experiments with tho 35,000 candle
power search lamps show that vessels
threo miles off can readily be detected,
and that, by throwing3tho light on the
clouds, signaling is possible at a ilis-
tanco of fifty milos.
Electric motors are now applied on
war ships for hoisting ammunition, instead ot using the "pony" steam engine.
Tho new method insures more of convenience, cleanliness, economy of space
and coolness of atmosphere.
It Is aaid that the first cost of building a fleet ot Atlantic liners is hut a
triflo compared to tho cost of running
thom. In lesa than tliroo years it- will
excood tlio cost of construction, so enormous is the expenditure in wages, port
duties and repairs.
La Nature gives an account of an
alarm girdlo for mon-of-war or harbors,
to protect them from tho sudden attack
of torpedo boats by night. Tho girdlo
iu mado of wire with floats, and is supported by buoys at intervals all round
the vessel. Whon tho enemy breaks
through tho lino a night light flares up
and indicates* tho spot.
From tho British Board of Trade returns it appears that overy fow days
throughout the year a vessel carrying
tho British Hag leaves port novor more
to bo heard of. h\ tho yoar ending
June, 1S88, tbe number of vessels under
lho British flag to which accidents happened of various kinds was 7,724, involving tho loss of 3,534 lives. This is a
melancholy record, but is less than the
avorago for ten years of about fifty lives.
Thoro were 900 total losses, of whioh
nearly one-third are reported as missing.
Successful experiments havo recently been mado In England with a new
nautical distress signal. The device is
in tho form of a metal cylinder, in the
base of whioh is the propelling charge,
above tbls being a charge of tonite, and
abovo this again a star composition.
The propelling charge is fired by pulling a lanyard, and tho signal is propelled upward at ono impulse until the
rocket has reached the height of 000
feet. The stars are thrown out, giving
a brilliant illumination, and the tonite
charge thon explodes, tbe noise being
equal to tho firing of a six-pound gun,
but being high in tho air la heard at a
great distance.

saw him kiss hor, and then heard hor

started to loave, but recognizing tho

was wltnoss to tho samo proceedings

so overpowered with grief that he sank

NUMBER 118.
TRANSPIRING  ABROAD.
Tbe five elevators in tbe Eiffel tower
made a profit uf $1,200,000 during the
French exposition.
The Watkin tower, which will be
erected in London and overtop tho Eiffel
tower by 885 feet, is to have six tegs instead of four, lt will cost about 81,200,-
000.
Since tbe first of January the French
Government haB theexolusivemonopoly
of the manufacture of matches within
its jur.siiiei.ion It has established seven
factories, in whioh it employs 1,700
workmen.
The telegraph postal card is a great
non venionco in Paris. Open cards df this
kind are delivered anywhere in Paris
within an hour after they aro mailed,
for six cents; closed ones, giving as
iiuch room as an ordinary letter, for ten
cents.
A French girl stole seven different
poems from Whittior's published efforts
and bad thom printed in Paris papers
and magazines as her own, and even
when an American showed up tho steal
she boldly claimed that VVhittler stolo
from her.
Tbe Czar of Russia has ordered that
a',1 clothes mado for himself and family
shall be of Russian material and made
by Russian hands. His wife iB muoh
annoyed at this decree. Her Majesty's
best dresses have always come direct
from Paris.
It is alleged that the falsification of
English coins by clipping and counter-
foiling has gone to a greater extent during the last few years than for a long
time before, and that such things, have
got to such a pass that it Ib hardly safe to
accept coins at all.
A conference held In Berlin has decided mat In Germany children shall
not be employed undor twelve yoars of
age, and then only for six hours a day
up to fourteen. Women and children
not to he employed in mines; and work-
in? Sunday is to be prohibited for women and children.
Thi attempt to start a Robert Elsmere
religion In London has been a partial
failure. It is much easier to make such
% negative creed a success in a novel,
wb ere disagreeable facts can bo Ignored,
than in real life. It seems that the
'enterprise lags because of tbo lack of a
"prophet." In the meanwhile the
none) sunk in it is a dead loss.
A lecture course known as the "Merchants* Lecture" has been given in London for 820 years. It was founded in
tbe reign of CharleB II. by merchants,
with tho professed design of "upholding
the doctrines of the reformation
against tbo arrow of popery, socialism
and Infidelity " Lecturers of to-day
are weekly carrying on the purpose of
the founders.
The widow of a merchant and her
daughtor arrived at tho Russian town of
Orel and put up at a hotel, registering
as follows: "Merchant widow from
Dmitrowsk, accompanied by her unmarried daughter, Jasha, 10 years of age,
1 '.OOO rubles dowry, of fair complexion,
with light hair and blue eyes, tumod
nuso. dimpled cheeks. No other, bodily
defects or special marks."
The cjueen, having been appointed
some time ago honorary colonel of the
Prussian Guards, has had a uniform
trade for her at Borlin, which sho will
wear on meeting tho German Emperor
at Darmstadt. The distinctive feature
of the uniform is a lady's jacket made
after tbe stylo of that worn by the
Prussian dragoons. !t is of blue..loth,
witb red collar, gold stripes and monogram.
Parisians were lately treated to a
■are effect of mirage. Tho Eiffel tower
was seen surmounted by an inverted
.mageot itsolf, vertical in the heavens
kail looking like a duplicate contlnua-
tion of the real structure. The base of
.'!•- image lost Itself in the upper mist,
while behind the tower was a low cloud
which gleamed like silver. The sun
was shining across tho haze to the loft
m tbe tower and contributed an additional effect of tight and shadow.
How Hr. McCuIIarIi Mmitltled a Man He
Had Seen But Once.
The fortunes of war are strange. One
day in the Southern Hotel at St. Louis,
a fow months ago. J. It. McCullagh, tho
editor of tbe Globe-Democrat, was Bitting reading a newBpaper when a gentleman walked up and, extending his
hand, said:
"How do you do, Mr. McCullagh?"
Tho editor put out his hand and said:
"How do you do, sir?"
"You don't seem to know me," tho
stranger remarked.
"Oh, yes, I do," Bald Mr. McCullagh.
"Well, who am I?" inquired tbe
stranger.
"I'll answer you in this way," said
Mr. McCullagh. "The last time I saw
you was in 1603, in the pilot-house of
the gun-boat (naming it) In the river
beforo Fort Dunolson. There wero
three of us in tho pilot-house—you, myself and the pilot—when a shell struck
us, oarrying away tho pilot bouse, and
killing one man and wounding another.
I was unhurt. Now, If it wus Morrison who was killed hy that shell, your
name Is Rellly; and if lt was Noilly who
was killed, yon aro Morrison. I remember your voice perfectly, but I can not
recall your name."
Mr. McCullagh was right. The man
who stood before him was Rellly, the
pilot, who was not killed
