The feeling in favor of forming
a Central American Confederation
seems to bo growing among the
pcoplo of the various States interested. The decree of the Oosti
Eicon Congress authorizing action
to bring about such n confederation
hus been very generally approved,
and thorc is a probability that a
strong and united nation may again
be established under the old Central
American flag.
A pretty, talented girl in Springfield, Mass., who hu just completed
her school course with credit, and
by reason of rather special talents
has received more attention and
admiration than falli to the lot of
most girls, was asked the other day
how she enjoyed her vacation. "Oh,
I'm enjoying it very much," she
answered brightly, "I'm doing the
housework now, and letting mother
have a little rest." "Your mother
is away on a vacation, then 1" was
the natural question, "Oh, no, she's
at home, but I'm giving her a
chance to rest in the morning and
to dress up and to sit ont on the
piazza when she feels like it. I
think it will do her good to have a
little change."
General Von Moltke, who has
beon placed upon the retired list of
the Gennon Army at the age of 88,
is succeeded by Count Von Walder-
see, a man of 66. The new commander has been in the army for
thirty yean, and served with distinction. In the Danish war, and, in
the later wars with Austria and
France. In 1881 he was placed on
the Emperor's personal staff and in
1882 became lieutenant-general and
adjutant to the Emperor. The
report from Paris that the choice of
Von W«fderaee'«'a'«ttjiffJof'tli.
war party seems to rest upon tlie
idea that r younger man is appointed to the head of the army because
work may be required to which the
vigor of the aged Von Moltke would
not be equal. Any change would
have probably drawn forth the same
comments in France, and there does
I n»t seem much cause for wonder or
immediate apprehention in the
retirement of a man with a career
so long and brilliant as that of Von
Moltke.—Empire.
When the great Liok telescope
was put into position at the observatory at Mount Hamilton it wis predicted that it would be the Weans
nf making some most important
astronomical discoveries, In the
San Francisco Bulletin of Aug. 6th,
Prof. George Davidson, who had
visited the observatory, stated that
the astronomers there had made
discoveries which would astonish
the world. He says:—"Some of the
discoveries they have made are, in
fact, so novel and wonderful that
Prof. Holden and hii corpi of assistants are really timid about announcing them to the world until
they are entirely satisfied that they
really do exist and are not illusions
of some sort. Important discoveries
have been made in .11 of the departments—- nobulw, double stars, planets,
etc., and questions which have been
subjects of doubt and speculation
for generations have been entirely
put at rest and accounted for. The
telescope exceeds my most extravagant hopes and imaginations." The
power of the telescope may be
divined when it ii said that its'total
length is 36 feet
We  have decided to announce
that we arc not open to applications
from European nationalities, largo
or small, which are now or may lie
looking for suitable persons to till
tlm   position of king or emperor.
As tlie salaries attached to  these
positions are generally liboral, wo
might possibly accept almost any of
them without much danger of pecuniary loss, while tho "tierce light that
beats   upon a  throne"   would   lie
likely to strike us as niodc.it and
grateful retirement, after the editorial chair; even the court ceremonies to whioh the poor people, enslaved by the effete survivals of a
barbarous pageantry, are nildictod,
would not greatly trouble us—by
cultivating  a small   cough nnd a
large pocket handkerchief we could
probably manage to struggle through
them without absolutely laughing in
anybody's  face; but there is one
thing which we could not stand,
Ijston:—"King  Christian.......
arrived this morning the Emperor and King kissed each other,
several times." No—though Bulgaria remain a thorn in the side of
Europe—though France be compelled to struggle on as a republic for
ever—we absolutely cant do it.
Applications will lie consigned to
the waste paper baskot. If it was
the queens, now, who went in for
this sort of thing, instead of the
kings—but therel some contrast*
are too painful for contemplation.

JOINED THE   1'KACE LEAlll'E.
Loklon, Aug, 25.—Tito oscorsivo
courtesy passing between the Czar and
the Emperor William respecting the
beautiful day. ot PeterliorV have alarmed Bngliih politician, of ill claeiei.
Those few English itateuneu who have
made foreign affain • dose itudyfor
yean lay thero was very little reason
for the recent optimistic declaration
of Lord Salisbury in hii survey of
foreign politics, and, with all duo deference, that it is not tbo funotion of an
English minister to echo the sentiments of Bismarck. In an interview
to-day a leading liberal, who hot been
frequently mentioned as tho only
itateimin of that party fitted for the
foreign secretaryship in the event of
Mr. Oladsone's return to power, lays,
"English interests and German interests do not always Coincido by any
mean,. All the world knows that if
not merely English interests, but tho
interest of tbo whole human race, outside of Germany, lay on one aide of
Bismarck's balance and purely German
interests on the other, the former
would kick the beam,. Bismarck haa
told the world over and over again
that his business is the welfare ol Germany, as, of course, he conceit ea it,
and he alone, and if Lord Salisbury
cherishei any illusions it is his own
fault. Lord Salisbury was delighted
because the German emperor visited
the czar, and apparently believes that
tlie policy of Russia has beon brought
into line with thit of Germany, that
Russia hu actually joined the peace
league which was in fact directed
•garnet herself and that the inillenium
ii on its way."

Halifax, Aug. 27.—Minister of
Fisheries Topper arrived here ycslor-
ilav from Ottawa. He regards tho
I'losidetit's mestngo as acain)iaiun document, and ns evidence i f this pointed
out that while the U, S, fishing vessels
have been prohibited from train-shipping their fish through Canada or from
puioliaaing bait, no mention ia made
ol licenses so freely granted for these
purposes during i ho present season, of
which nearly all American bank vol-
aoli avail thcniBcl ves. This ii done to
.how the ib sire of Canadians for •
fair and honorable settlement of the
controversy without any treaty arrangement requiring it, Canada ii not
dependent upon American porta; oven
now, westorn Canadian merchants
are ordering goods shipped through to
Halifax instead of Boston or Portland.
If the president obtains the power
asked for, Canada can stand it if the
IT. S. can. Tho unsettloment of trade
will be felt mora in the larger and
richer country than in Canada.

and Canada will damage American '
railway interests between two and
three dollars where it will injure the .
Canadian intereit one. On Canadiana .

slight. There il no money for ui in

pat, but several vessels were destroyed.
It was at one time feared the flame,
would cross the river through the shipping and communicate with vessels In
the docks, but hauling out the venela
and a change of wind averted the din-
ger. Tho loss of property on the dock,
and among the shipping is very heavy.
Six persons lost their lives in the fire.

tho Oceanic being first examined. Captain Metcalfe of the latter ateuuier in his .
testimony said; "At the moment I saw-
that a collision wu inevitable I telegraphed to our engineer 'Fall ipeed
utern.' He responded immediately and
just then we struck the Chester aft of
the port prow, or in reality the Cheater
struck us, for at thit time our propeller
had been nearly brought to a standstill.
I gave ordera for lowering the boat, ind
two of them wore alongside tho Chester
just aa she sank, which wu In about six
minutes, as near u I could guess."
Children C7.1V PPer>«k*to*l« gmlB $ritish Columbian
finds* Evealu, A.:. II.
The Y. Mj-3.,A. in this city is
an institution which deserves and
should obtain the support of our
business men and others. The management of this society, we understand, are about making a special
appeal to the public on behalf of the
funds of the establishment, which
require replenishing to enable the
society to carry on the various
branches of its work. The scope
and functions of the Y.M.O.A.
(Young Men's Christian Association)
may not be generally understood.
Besides its moral and religious work,
with which some may have no particular sympathy, the institution
furnishes social and educational advantages which are invaluable for
the young mon, especially, of a city,
as well as strangers who have no
home comforts and conveniences.
In the rooms of the association in
this city, which are open day and
night during the week, may be found
a free library of considerable extent
and variety, over 60 different periodicals and newspapers, including
all the local and the best Canadian
and American publications. Facilities are afforded for indulging in the
various innocent games. The rooms
ore neat and attractive, and as a
pleasant and healthful resort, physically, intellectually, and morally,
cannot be too highly appreciatad.
A branch of the society's work not
to be undervalued is what might be
termed its intelligence offico work—
bringing together, to their mutual
advantage, employers and those
seeking employment A great deal
of valuable work of this sort has been
accomplished by the association
here in addition to its praiseworthy
efforts in other directions. The society desire, very naturally, with the
increasingly hopeful outlook for the
future of the city, to enlarge their
borders and extend their operations,
We believe the intention is to add
baths and a gymnasium to the outfit of the institution, and as soon as
possible to erect an association building in some suitable lecation. The
C'"c support, however, has not
adequate in the post, and, instead of progressing, the society will
be forced to retrograde unless more
of the "sinews of war" is forthcoming. It il . to be hoped that our
buiiness men and others—all who
are interested in the true welfare of
the city—will take more interest iu
the future in the prosperity of this
laudable institution and respond, as
liberally as they can afford, lo its
claims for assistance, remembering,
among other things, that outsiders,
strangers, judge us as a city by our
attitude in such matters—by our
possession or non-possession, in a
healthy or languishing condition,
of the usual facilities and adjuncts
of a civilized community. No oity
of any pretensions in these days
can afford to be without a flourishing
branch of the world-wide and world-
honored Y.M.O.A.
With all bur boastful pride of race
we are forced occasionally to acknowledge superiority in some lines
of achievement in what we are accustomed to consider the inferior
races. The following from the
Scientific American is so interesting
in this connection that we take the
liberty to republish it: A correspondent of the Omaha Herald has
been among the Indians, and this is
how he tells of what he saw: "In
the Indian camp of the Arapahoe
chief Friday, we saw many curious
scenes and learned much of Indian
life. One day Friday said to me he
would like to show off his young men
and let me see how well they could
ride. At first I expected some
treachery, as tho whole herd of
ponies was in the hands of the
troops, The old chief,.however, was
so earnest and apparently honest
about it, 1 told the captain, who had
the herd in charge, he might let
Friday have fifty ponies for his
young men. In about an hour they
drew up before the tents in war
punt and feathen, and were as fine
a looking set of fellows as I have
ever seen. Hardly one but was six
feet in height and beautifully proportioned. They sat their horses
like centaurs, and were ease and
grace itself in the saddle. At a
signal from the chief they began
their movements with a yell that
Mat the blood curdling to the heart,
and was enough, if heard unawares
or in the night time, to make one's
hair stand on end. In a moment
they had disappeared over a neighboring hill to the right, and I
thought they had gone; but hearing
a mighty trampling of horses, I
looked to the left, and there they
came. I can compile it to nothing
but the wind, and they .wept by so
compact that they looked like a ball
ol horsei and men. Splitting in two,
one body .wept to the right and another to the left, and again disappeared. In about two minutes the
two bodies charged each other in
■olid line., and I waited breathlessly
for the shock, bnt, as the horses'
head, almost touched each other, the
files skillfully opened to the right
and left, and the linei passed through
the interval! without touching.
Wheeling to the right about they
raised hick in an instant, and again
disappeared over the hills. It was
about fifteen minutes before they
came in sight, and Friday informed
me that they were blowing their
bone*,   PfeMntlyontheyoimeand
wheeled by fours, formed columns,
and finally deployed as skirmishers.
It was now we saw the finest iu
dividual horsemanship. Some
would approach lying so close to the
pony's back that nothing but the
horse could be seen. Others stood
up and rode as circus men do. Some
would hang with one foot and one
hand on the horses and sweep by,
their bodies completely protected by
the bodies of the animals. Some
leaped upon the ground, holding to
the mane of the horse, and after
running a step or two would swing
themselves up on the backs of the
horses again as easily as any circus
man could do it. The positions they
assumed and the feats of horseman-
shin they performed were incredible,
ana I doubt if anything outside of a
circus ring ever equaled it. They
would throw objects on the ground
and pick them up again while passing nt full speed, the warriors hanging to the sides of the horses with
one foot and one hund. They drew
bows and shot arrows from underneath the necks and even the bellies
of their horses while riding at a fast
gallop. Our cavalry could not learn
to ride as well as these Indians did
if each man was trained for twenty
years. They exchanged hors«s while
ridin;,', and got behind each other.
One man would fall off his horse us
if wounded, and two others would
ride up beside him, and, taking him
by an arm und leg, swing him between their horses and carry him
off. The exhibition, or drill, as
Friday called it, lasted nearly two
hours, and tlie men and horses were
completely exhausted. I had never
seen such magnificent feats of horse,
manship in my life, and I freely said
so. At this Friday was much
pleased, and calling up the young
men, repeated to them in a loud
voice what I had said, and added a
few words of his own, complimenting
them. The young men were very
proud of the manner in which they
bad aoquitted themselves, and I
could imagine the feelings of their
parents and sweethearts. The performers were much worn out, some
of them being hardly able to stand
after their violent exercise, and all
the evening I saw them lying in the
lodges, where the Indian women
brought them food, bathed their
hands, arms, and limbs, and combed
their hair."

and inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot be moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Saroaparilla.
by its action on the blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
working order.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in

most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could give the names of
many individuals who have been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has workod wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with It for years. In
tliis, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer's Sarsaparilla.—R. H.

I^^H MM POTTER'S JOKE.
"Ton hive midline very hippy, Polly,
nnd I'noso vn nt th. day for Thanksgiving Day."
Miss Polly Pwklns looklxl lovingly Into
his eyes nnd anawered ifflrmatively by
leaning her head upon his shoulder.
They were sitting in tho pretty parlor
of a cosy cottage on the outskirts ol
Olenville.
Their courtBhlp hid not been a long
one—In fact, it hid been Ihort, earnest
am! decisive, »nd when Mr. Peter Potter
parted with his betrothed 'that Sunday
night he considered himself a very lucky
man in securing inch a prize as Polly
Perkins, the prettiest loss In Glenville,
who hud eaten more philopenas and
broken more chloken breast, bones than
any maiden for miles around.
True, she was only SO, while Peter was
a bachelor nway up in the thirties;-bat
lie was a man ot property, and carried on
a thriving grocery business in the village; nud there were some girls tn Glenville who would have felt very much
"put out" if they had overheard, the engagement, words spoken that Sunday
night. ■■*
Thanksgiving Day was now only two
months off, and Polly at once began to
prepare her wedding trousseau.
She was a poor girl who made her living by working in a cotton factory, and
she hail no relative In the world except
nn old maiden aunt with whom she lived.
She wala bright girl, Bomewlmt pert In
manners, and, on occasion, she could be
as tart as vinegar.
Mr. Peter Potter was a queer mental
compound. Ho was phenomenally unstable In his views on religion and politics; so much so, In' fact, that' he had won
the nickname of "Peter Changeabout,"
anil no one more faithfully observed' the
mux! in, "When you're among Romans
do as tb, Romans do," than he,
Iii politic! ho was equally (Icicle. One
year he was an ardent Democrat; the next
year he was a Republican, nud once he
jignrcd as a bright and shining light In
tlio ruuka of the Independent party.
Peter Potter was a man well liked by
the peo. le of Glenville. lie was not
i tinny. He was foremost In the works of
charity, and many a poor family, to
which enforced idleness or sickness had
brought privation, was the recipient of
bulmtantlal gilts from his store. .
He was always a cheerful j man, and no
social party in Glenville waa considered
complete without his presence. And he i
waa very popular with the gentler sex.
Moreover, he greatly enjoyed a practical
joke, eve:i If he himself were the victim
of It. In thla respect he could give and
take with equal satisfaction to his rlllbll-
lllca in either case.
Now, when the news got .roundthathe
had engager] himself to Mia, Polly Perkins the gossips made all sorts of remarks
about the matter not at all complimentary to'Mr. Peter Potter,
"I'll bet a watermelon to a punkln
seed," laid Bill Jackson, the postmaster,
"thit Peter Potter won't he on hand
when the time com... Of cimrsehenow
thinks ho loves Miss Perkins, ISut'le'i
likely to be smitten with the charm, of
Sallle Tweedle next week, snd with those
of Suslo Timkins the week after, and with
half a dozen other, before Thanksgiving
Day. Poor Polly Perklnsl She's too
nice a body to be trilled with and made
the jut aud jeer of .11 the girl. In thii
town."
And thil wis th. popular view taken of
the situation, and some ot the goaslpi
were not dilatory in saying eo much to
Miss Perkins. Nevertheless, sho had
faith iu her ufuanced, and received the
tattle of .tho busybedies wlthoiititllowiug
her gooil nature to become ruffled for a
moment,
"Why,4' laid Ihe to a neighbor on. day,
"do you suppose I'm going to go crazy if
he don't keep hii wordf Oh, no! There'!
Just ai good fish in the wa as ever waa
caught, you know." and then .he laughed
most heartily and went tripping along
. thoroidildihurnmlngaiebieryalr.
Ot course much of this gossip reached
the ears ot Mr. Peter Potter, who, however, went about his business as usual
and was not at all affected by the coldness whioh some ot the marriageable
girls of the Sewing Society manifested
when ho met them on the itreet or at
church. Aa for the gentlemen—those
fellow! who had declared that his Intentions to Polly were merely one of his prac-
tlcal Jokes— he laid:
"Let'em have their fun. I'll show'em
a Joke yet that'll make 'em Uugh on the
other sld. ol the mouth."
Well, it was now within a week of th.
time ait for the wedding. Invitation! to
the ceremony had been lent out with the
request that the recipients be at Mill
Perkins' Aunt Betsy's residence at 8
o'clock ot that oaytowltnes. tt. tare-
mony. '',. .'■''

Even the gossips who hid been most in-
ilnstriouilncritlolilng Mr. Peter Potter
wero there. The Rev. Philip Thompson
arrived a few moments before the appointed hour—ho wu to be the muter of
ceremonies—nnd whin the old clock

Then remark, wero sddremad to young
Lawyer Tom Kent, whose conversation
with a long-haired, bushy-whiskered and
heavily mustached gentleman had been
interrupted by them,

Ji' town.  I reckon this li on, of hi., Jokei,"
, saying whioh the Postmaster looked over
toward th. bride that waa-to-have-been,
and then turning to Mr. Spleller anil Lawyer Kent he said, laying Mi hand upon

"Vcayoubet.he.waiiahd—"
At this Instant the attention of tbe three
I'v was diverted to a group of young women
who had surrounded Miss Parkin, and
were mingling expressions of sympathy
tor her with ttelr denunciation! of her
delinquent betrothed. Polly's fad Was
burled In AuntBetsy'a lap and she seemed
to.bu wecplngf ,
"Mishtcr Kent, vUlyou okqunihtnnce
me uiako mit dot meenisterf" said Mr.
Sjiielli r.
"OiTtuinly, with pleasure," Bald the
lawyer, und the acquaintance was made.
Mr. Spleller took the Rev. Mr. Tliomp-
lon's arm and led him to a corner where
the two, tor several minutes, held a whispered .conversation. Then the guests—
nearly an hour had passed—were preparing to take their leave.
I '.'Ladies and gentlemen," said Lawyer
Kent, "as the friend nnd legal adviser of
Mr. Peter Potter, permit me to request
you to stay a little longer. He may have
been unavoidably detained, you see."
At this moment Mr. Spleller whispered
something In Lawyer Kent's oar, and the
lawyer then said something In a low tone
to tho dominie.
"Mishtcr Shackson," »nl,l Mr. Spleller,
addressing tho Postmaster, "I vill take
dot pet about dot vatermuillou uud dot
punkln seed."
"But you'll lose, sure," said Mr. Jack-
ion. ,    '   ,
"Veil, den I loose—dot'l nil," said Mr.
Spleller, "und I pet you dot hosi I got In

Mishter Potter vill pe here—urn I"
"Well, I'll go you," said the Postmaster,
"Vawr itnd peforo deso vitnesscsf"
asked Mr. Spleller. ... .
"Sure," answered Mr. Jackson.
There Vas fit this.moment a little flurry
among the guests, during which  Mr,
Spleller approached Polly and said:
"Miss Perklus, vill you ibneak mit me
In dothallvny von minyute'1'
-With herhnudkerchlef to ber eyes, Polly
'arose and accompanied the' gentleman to
the hall.
"It's worked ipleutUdly, Polly,dear,"
he said, "and I reckon I've taught 'em n
good lesson. There, now," and he tore
off his long hair and bushy whiskers and
gave her a kiss that, but for tho noise
made by the busy tongues In the parlor
might have been heaid there.
The next moment Miss Polly Perkins
returned to the company IrVullug on the
arm of Mr. Peter Potter, who was gen-
tcely attired In a dress suit, and In every
respect looked like a becoming and happy
bridegroom.
The guests were struck dumb with
amazement, which was greatly heightened wlieu Peter placed his hand in that
of tlm Rev. Mr. Thompson, and said:
"Vill you pe goot enough to make von
of us two—ueln, nein, I means vill you
make us two into von—uml"
Well, the ceremony was soon over, nnd
a right Jolly wedulng feast soon followed,
and when the company separated the
happy bridegroom saiil.us a purtiug remark to Postmaster Jacks,,u-
"Dotvosvon great priiutikeel.'shoke—

"Not much he didn't."
"Shakespeare didn't mako it entirely

"What author', work, did you over

"That's not history."
"Right you nn again. I'm a little rattled to-day. Verba and tensei have nothing to do with history. I didn't mem to

"What did yon Intend to say I"
"Geography, of course."
"That's uot geography."

The Meatie. Cue.
This notorious case which ho! occupied eo much attention in the capital
for the post two weeks, waa practically
brought to an end last Fridry, when
Mr. Justice Gray, before whom tho
case was tried without a jury, under
the "Speedy Trials Act, delivered
judgment, finding tbe prisoner guilty
of the offence of procuring, by false
pretences and fraudulent mean,, illicit intercourse between Ah Lin, a
Chinese girl and minor, and Ah Chee,
a Chinaman. The judgment wbb very
lengthy, lucid and exhaustive, after
which the prisoner, upon invitation
made a statement at considerable
length. Justice Gray expressed himself to the effect that the statement of
the prisoner threw new light upon the
caBO, and regretted that the facts, if
such, had not been brought forward before. After asking that a copy
of the atatement in writing should be
handed to hiin, his lordship deferred
aontence until Saturday.
Sundays Colonist lays;—The sentence will be pronounced in W. 11.
Menzies' case to-morrow morning. It
waa deferred yesterday in order that
hie lordship might rooeive some information regarding the prisoner's standing in the community during his residence here. Opinion wai freely ox-
preised yesterday that the greatest
amount of mercy should be exercised
in thii nutter, the belief existing that
Menzie, waa guilty of wrong in a technical tenie only.
A few dayi ago a young farmer named Athonoa Thompson, from Port
Hammond, wai brought to the city
Buffering from n very icvero attack of
typhoid fever and waa taken to St.
Mary's Hospital for treatment under
Dr. Fagan, the attending physician.
The fover reached its height on Saturday afternoon and two attendant! remained with Thompson all night
Yesterday morning the delirium abated somewhat and tho hospital steward
relieved the night watcher. Shortly
after the steward went on duty a patient in the next room called to him
to go in and pull down tho blind as it
was so bright in the room that
he could not aleep. Thompson
waa not showing any particular
sijiiB of restiveness and the iteward
ve...aired out of the room and on returning leas than n minute afterwards
found the patient balancing himself on
the window-sill for a leap. Bushing
forward the itewird grasped Thompson
by the arm, but was too late ib the
shirt gavo way and he fell to the
ground leaving a piece of the cloth in
tho steward's hand. In falling Thompson turned a complete summersault
and alighted on hi, feet, but the shock
threw him to tho ground. He got up,
apparently uninjured, vaulted the
fence and started in' thi direction of
the conyent, shouting and screaming.
The ateward Boon caught up with him
and took him back to the hospital. Dr.
Fagnn was tent for and on arriving at
the hospital found Thompson much
worse and bleeding from the kidneya.
Everything possible was done for the
sufferer, but without avail a. he sank
rapidly and died about 6 o'clock Inst
evening. Dr. Figan notified Mr.
Coroner Ferrii and the friends of the
de -oased, who considered an inquest
unnecessary.

.(Before T, O, Atkinson. P. M., and P.
, i   MoTlernan.AP..'.
\hrm, cn'ar,p,l*ith '.Wing liquor to Indians, waa fined 850 and
sentenced to six monthi in gaol with
hard labor.
James Kingston, charged with drunkenness, fined $6.00.
The information against Goodmur-
phy, charged with assaulting Ah Sing,
waa withdrawn hy the latter, who paid
colli.
Charley, a Bella Coola Indian,
charged with being drunk and having
liquor in hii possession. The charge
of drunkenness wii proved and a fine
of $5.00 wu imposed.
Joe, a Harriion River Indian,
charged with being drunk and breaking into the house of Samuol Bole,
waa fined $6.00 on the Ant charge and
remanded on the Becond. Joe ia a well-
known Indian and haa heretofore born,
a very good character. He wai a member of the Methodist Church and waa
a hard-working honest boy until he
fell into drinking habits and took to
gambling. Last night he was drunk
and attempted to enter the house of
Samuel Bole, with whole family he il
very intimate. The oxcuse he givei
for thii act is that he wanted to kin
one of Ihe children. Stealing into a
houae in the middle of the night to
kisa a little girl shows that Joe's bump
of amativeneai il well developed, but
doei not add anything tn his character. If Joe will acknowledge lo where
he receive! his supply of liquor it ii
probable he will get off with a light
sentence, if not it will likely go hard
with him.
A limner Story.
London, Aug. 25. — A strange
story cornel from Cairo, whioh,
if true, account, for tho effort
of the Cologne Gaelic to discredit the
exchange report!of pilgrims irriving
at Suakim respecting the White Paaha
in Bahr El Gazel. It ii to the effect
that the English officers in the Egyptian army fearing the iucce.1 of the
expedition under Lieut. Wisiman up
the Nile to affect a junction with the
White Pasha aud co-operate with him
for the release of the European prisoners st Kartoum, have succeeded in
prevailing on the Khedive to withdraw
bis promise, of support to Lieut. Win-
man and to dispatch an Egyptian force
from Wady Haifa to nmdurman io ui
to preserve the Khedive's suzerainty
in the Soudan from the possible encroachment of foreign power.. The
Khedive ii idviied that inch « force
would meet with mora allies than one-
mioi, u Khilifis influence is waning
and that the present moment is favorable for Ih. adoption of an active
policy in the Soudan.
