NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The manufacture of Honiton lave*
la falling off, owing to the failure in
the demand. The children in Honiton and thereabouts need to be
taught to make lace ns toon and aa
regularly aa they were taugbt to
read; but thii haa almost ceased, and
tie art leems in danger of dying out.
A respirator, with "goggle" attachment to protect the eyea, the
ule of which enablei the wearer to
get around comfortably lb. thick
imoke, hai been invented in England. Thil will be a valuable thing
for firemen, and people who live in
mosquito countries might find it a
handy thing to have in the "Imtrdge"
Smuggling—or rather illicit, making of whisky—is increasing in the
highland! of Sootland,' and some
amusing stories are told of the plots
and counterplot! of the law. breakers
and law officer*. The government
has been compelled to increase the
number of preventive officers, as the
staff was found insufficient to protect the revenue.
We find in an exchange a statement that the contract hai been let
for the construction of a ship railway across the Isthmus of Tehuan-
tepec in Mexico, the work to be
finished in live yean. This ii Oapt.
Ead'i scheme, and if there ii money
enough at the back of it, ships will
probably cross that way before they
float through the Panama caul.
Some of the English railway
companies have recently token to
decorating their carriages—as they
call them—with photos of building!,
and icenery belonging to the country thtdug^|iwhioli| ^Ijb, jigp roni.
The pictures are* Said to be very
good, and the effect is an immense
improvement on the old style of
plastering the panels with adverr
tisementa.
If we are to believe tbe telegrama,
the republican! are having nther
the beet of it, so far, in the presidential fight. But, then, we have
not got tie ."'Mide track" aa to the
politic! of the men who make the
■..^...m.. At all eventa, our nous-
Ins will have a good 'man at the

The latest work for the camera ii
the photography of lightning flashes.
You focus your machine for a long
distan.-e, point it at a thunder cloud,
and leave it there. Of coune, the
work must be done on a dark night,
when the plate can be '"expoied"
without spoiling. Then, when the
flaih comet, it registers iteelf. We
would not advise our photographers,
to go into the buiineii, It ii doubtless very attractive; but they w»uld
probably get tired waiting for lightning In thia part of the world.
Great minds don't alwayi look at
things in the lame way. The!
Daily Newt ot London, and the
Newt'Advertittrot Vancouver hold
radically different viewi about the
influence of Mr, Chamberlain'! presence on the fiilieiy commiuion. And
yet these great minda do run in
similar, or parallel grooves, for both
nre largely Influenced by their prejudices, and give their judgment
very little scope in the matter, The
loiidon paper has it that Mr. Chamberlain's appointment wai unpopular
in America, and in this it il undeniably right; although, of coune, if it
want, tu NttUllltl the wholo  IImscu on
poor Joe, it goes too far. The Van-
coiiver paper has it that Mr, Chamberlain was "perfectly utiifactory"
to both American and Canadian
people, and the Vancouver paper
must either know that it is telling a
fearful taradiddle, or else it ia io
blinded by iti ultra-toryiim that it
does not know black from white
where any political matter is even
remotely concerned, Chamberlain
ia, and deserves to be, a, badly discredited man, and if our friend at
the salt water wanti to pour the
aweet balm of hii tory sympathies
on any British statesman, we fnnoy
be could easily find a fitter object

Nuoaka Fails, Sept. 18.—After
many triala 0. A. Porcy made hii
•econd much talked of trip through the
whirpool npidi thil afternoon, Tbe
forenoon of to-day he .pent in 1 repairing hii bolt. At 2:25 it wai taken
(town to the oli,tlud of the Mfrt
>ndinjr ind lainch*l. 'At 4:18 p.m.
everylniin wai in readiness and Percy
descended in a rowing auit stepped in
•nd rowed toward the centre of the
river. At 4:20 he fattened the oira .to,
the boat, itood up md waved good-bye
to the oro'wdi of enlookeri." At. .4:23
p.m. he itepped Into the aft' air chamber. At '4:20 passed under, the
bridges. At almoat the fint ton the
boat went out of right and rote bottom
up.. It seemed in age before it righted
itself, but did so just as the crowd became very antioui. The trip wai very
limilar to one Percy made in Aug. 18,
1887. He arrived at tho whirlpool at
4:29 where he left his chamber and
rowed aoroai to the; Canadian shore.
He remained in the whirlpool until
5:30 when he wai towed acrbai the
lower reef and itarted on his trip to
the Lewiston Rapid! below • whirlpool
equally dangerous if not more so thin
thoie ibove. Just aa he was puiing
Foster'i Flati, about amilo below the
whirlpool; a huge breiker dashed in
the door of hii chamber, tilling it with
water; he wis compelled to tike the
centre of the boat, but before he could
properly secure himself he was thrown
out in the rapids. ' He managed to
catch the boat igiin to Which he cluni
for half a mile when he wat dathei
away juit where the npidi ire mott
fierce. Hiving a life', preserver to
-buoy him up he ifatrted for Lewitton
three milei below.. For two houn he
battled with the wavet. When he
reached itill** witer, levoral boats
Wen on the lookout for him. He wai
pieked up juit under old Lewitton
bridge by a aihermm named. Olllett,
brought Mhon and carried into the
Waggoner's Houis, nearly eihiuited.
Had it not have been for the life preserver he would hive been drowned.
The bolt hit not yet been pieked up.
Percy hu unintentionally performed a
feat never before attempted, that of
•wimming the Devil'i Hole Bapidi.
Nellis Diliworth, of Pittsburg, who
was to hits accompanied Percy hacked
out and thai uved her life.

" empire atate." When the full significance ef iuch an occurrence be-
■"PW:l*i4».ankoii one' couPlea' witd
the fact that fte., (JisgraQeful exhibition took place on the morning of
the " Lordi Day," among » crowd of
low professional "toughs," the smile
ii very likely to be congealed into a
mingled expression of amazement
and. disgust, If theie are othen
•till inchned to extract only mirth
out of the episode, they might oik
themselves if they would like to see
their "wives, daughters, or sweethearts," as tbe case might be, unsex
themselves in a similar manner. The
question, perhaps, does not affect us
in British Oolumbia very much, as
we never expect to get quite so low.
We may be sure we shall not, so
long as we keep onr the thin end of
the wedge. After that—human his
tory does not warrant us in boasting. Such a thing happening in one
of the two leading nations of civilization in this ago of the world is
neither edifying nor reassuring. Are
we advancing or retrograding I On
which side is the balance I
The scientists have been discussing the question, "Does excitement
shorten life I" and, as usual, the
"doctors differ." Of course it is
rather a difficult question to decide,
when it is necessarily complicated
and modified by different temperaments and conditions. One authority says general' physical development is necessary to prolong life,
while another insists this is not required if the day's employment does
not call for physical exertion. Dr.
D. B. Richardson, an eminent English authority, whose remarks before
the Sanitary Institute of Great
Britain on the storage of life have
been widely quoted, declares, among
many obvious though, scarcely novel
propositions, that everything that
quickens the action of the heart,
any kind of excitement, taxes and
reduces the storage of life. Commenting on this statement the
Scientific American says: " If this
were uid of..those naturally feeble,
or inheriting disease, or even of
these, leading udentary lives, and
living from day to day without the
invigorating benefits of fresh air
and exercise, it would seem reasonable, tor one does not have to be a
skillful physiologist to know that
excitement affects the nerves as well
ai the heart. But is the statement
strictly true when referring, as here,
to the entire human family I Surely loldiere engaged in actual warfare and sailors in peace as well as
war. live among excitements, as well
aa being notoriously addicted to in-
; dulgencei as to drinking ind smoking, and yet they are long-lived.
Statistic! showed it and observation
corroborate! them. The pension
Kit of tbe Britiih army, giving the
agei of the beneficiaries, men who
have served in all climates for from
20 to 40 years, and excluding those
pensioned sooner because of "wounds
received while in the performance of
duty," shows that soldiers.do not die
as other tnen do; so it is with the
naval J-atnsionen ol the Greenwich
Hospital, now scattered over. Great
Britain, because of its abolishment.
In'the meishant service to-day it is
no uncommon thing to find a man
70 yean of age in charge of a ves-
ial—a post requiring.activity of
body as well as,of. mind, Here in
New York we have the proof near
us, for at Sailor's Snug Harbor, on
Staten Island, are 800 aged but for
the most part hearty sailors. Most
of these are between 70 and 80; active old follows they are,, with clesr
Blinds and, good appetite!. They
,. will tell you they are not by any
muni the sole survivors of our one
time merchant fleet; that many, if
not most of their mates are yet living, but distributed.over the country, living with their grandchildren,
perhaps wherrying for a living or
engaged in other employments along
a water front. From this it would
appear that a Bound human body
ean withitand hunger and exposure
and even frequent excitemont, if
only there is plenty ot fresh air and
exercise of a vigorous kind thrown
in."
Ooldwin Smith has been spread
Ing himself " without our leave " on
British Oolumbia lince he got back
eut again, after hii late " flying
Itwek" through the country. "Brit
iih Columbia has hardly any agri-
eultunl land," he uyi. Of course
tie knowi all about it; he flitted
through tbe country, touching only
at Vancouver and Victoria, where,
naturally enough, he bv no agricul
toni land, and, travelling night and
day by rail, he surely couldn't have
expected to see much en route. The
'-only true and. original Smith" probably got prairie-struck by hii three
or four dayi' " sosot" over the illimitable pUini of the Northweit, and
wovtli so doubt argue in this way:
"Alligricultuml land is preirie; /
drdnot we much prairie in British
Colombia; therefore British Colum-
bi»aWh»rdly*ny agricultural land."
^ spite of Mr. Smith'i dictum, Brit-
ia* Arabia's agricultural land will

dimensions, and if Mr. Smith learns
to tell the truth before he dies, be
may sometime have an opportunity,
in company with Canada's illustrious
premier, of " looking down " upon,
this glorious province, when he„ivihf
see that its patches of "agricultural
land" ore far more numerous and
extensive than in the ignorance of
his flesh he supposed. " In both
places (Victoria and Vancouver), so
far as I could learn, commercial in
telligence recognized as essential to
the interests pf the colony the liberty
of tending her lumber, salmon and
coal, as well as the minerals which
tlie lives in hopes of finding (?) (the
italics are ours), to a free market
in the United States, and of buying
freely in that market at the same
time," Thii il not so far from the
mark. British Oolumbia would certainly be benefitted, and would have
profitted largely in the past, by a
very material relaxation of the trade
restrictions with the American republic; but she has sacrificed something in the past, and is prepared to
do so to a certain extent in the future, to the general good and to
national patriotism, while viewing
with favor an abatement or removal
of the present trade restrictions.
"British Columbia belongs not to
Canada, but to the Pacific coast, nor
will any number of political railways identify her with us or make
the connection anything but a desperate struggle against nature. Of
the'welding'efficacy of the Canadian Pacific Bailway there is as yet
hardly a sign. No British Columbian, any more than the maritime
province man, calls himself a Canadian or likes you to call him io."
The foregoing clause or two is a
pieco of unadulterated, oranky',' cus-
sedness," and could only result from
viewing tbe question through a pair
of ill-adjusted " annexation " spectacles. "The politics, they frankly
tell you, are ' government appropriations.' The truth is that there are
no Dominion politics in uny but the
two old provinces, in which and in
reference to the circumstances of
which, our political parties were
formed." It would be interesting
tehavea definition of "Dominion
politics" from this greatest of all
the Smiths. Perhaps it will be
found very much to our credit that
we don't take any stock in that article. Mr. Smith will probably allow us to consider ourselves as a
part of Canada, even if we do decline to mix ourselves Up with the
Liberals and the Conservatives, the
Grits and the Tories, the Bleusand
the Castors, the Rouges and the
Nationalists—tlie im and the outsat the two older provinces of the
Dominion.

A Creaking Hinge
Ib dry ant turns bard, until oil is applied,
after which it move* easily. When the
Jointer hinges, of the body are stiffened
and inflamed by Rheumatism, they cannot be moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Saroaparilla,
by its action on the blood, relieves thii
condition, and restores the joint* to good
working order.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla, bag, effected, fa our
city, many most remantauA cures, in
cases which baffled the efforts of tha
mc«eniierfeMed phmtotai, Were it
necesaory, I could.give tha, names ot.
many individuals whohava been cured'
by taking this medicine. In my case It
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
alter being troubled withit for years. In
this, 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.—B. H.
Lawrence, fit. D., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer's Sarsaparilla cured me of Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It lias eradicated every trace of
disease from my system.—-R. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Belmont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted me grievously, in spite of all the
remedies I could find, until I commenced
using Ayer's Sarsaparilla. I took several bottles of tliiB preparation, and was
speedily restored to health.—J. Fream,

conditions of tho battles wero about the
■■■■ same as our own. One thinir wai especially noticeable—the scattered condition
' of the men in going Into lialtlo and their
scattered condition while engaged.   At
- Gravelotte, Beaumont nnd Sedan the
meri engaged on both sides were so ecat-
tered that it looked like thousands of
men engaged in a deadly skirmish without any regard to lines or formation.
Thete battles were of this style of fight-

closing at night by the French always
giving up tAvir potition, or being driven
f**m tt iu «hts way by ths Prussians.

Whenever the correspondence between
Grant and Sheridan during the Reconstruction period is published, It will
prove all that I say. That correspond,
enco was secret; Grant's letters were nol.
copied in tlio ordinary letter-books; they
.were m.a'ii by none of the clerks and by
few of the officers at tho headquarters of
tho army. I retained single .copies of
lliem nt the time aud when Giuiit became
Prisiuont I copied Uiets-iuto a book,
which for SC1110. ri'usui mm not turned
over tu t'.io War Dppmnmttb.tthe drat
■ drafts or roBllll Mp'tt to Mi t,o'«i^ and
told me they ralgktict-e as Inntetlol fw
n political mensiw. All I list were of Importance I have already so used, but
Slierl. Inn's replies linve not yet heen given.,
to the world. They will deniniiitritte tlie
ultimate ciiiirncter nf tlio r.talloiis of
Grant and niiuridiiD, the colnplii* hiir-
mony In tlu-ir feeling and tlm accord In)
their judgment on a suliject. whluh they
had never discussed in apukrn Words; for
onewoiln Washington nud the .other.in
New Orleans bifiire Die I.-niisiiiiiii dlfll-
culty arose, mul they did not meet after
thil until Sheridan hud heen relieved.
Icoiitiilluil Sheridan frequently lit th.
eputie fit; my historical labor., arid he
gave me all tlieaBSiituiicelaskeal, butde-
Mrasd menot to name Mm as authority in
political matter., .He did not wish to hi
involved in polklcal controversies, ei-
peplally While hiv-Wii-icrvlng under a
Democratic adrainiitrstlon; but he prom,
lud to furnish me all the facts in hia poi-
leationi.ndhe kept hi. word. After thi
appearance of "Grant In Peace" he assured me that he weuld never oontraillut
or givi eiius, to cofiUtlillct any atate-
ment that H contained,
j When ho saw the picture I tried to
make of himself for my military htitory,
he pbjen' ed to my saying that he iwore,
and I struck out the statement; but he
allowed .mo to describe hlm aatislng In
his itirnlns nnd awlirghig his kat lu the
famous ride from Winchester.: He was
loath, however, to go down to history as.
a niero Murat, and naturally io,- for he
was much more than a cavalry leader.
Still, ho had all the passion, and magnetism that tire so lrre*lst!b!e with troops.
I have often been toldthftt-on the great
ride Ida face was fairly black with tlio
rage of butili', ind be crieil out again and
ngiiin;»' We'i| licit 'efti ctirtof their booti,
boyii! ave'll liiik'em-.rjut of their .boots!".
| He was nil the more a general because he
shared and Inspired the feeling of his lol-
diers.
I shall never forgot how ho looked on
the day.of the snirenrlcr'of I^e. -Hll
troops hud outmarched the great Southern lender, ami fairly surrounded him at
last; but when this was discovered Les
lent word that he win negotiating with
Grant for a surrender, and asked for a
suspension of hostilUlei. Sheridan had
heard nothing of the negotiations, aud
feared the report might bo n ruse of Lee.
At this moment 1 huppeued to rid. up,
and Sheridan sunnoilnir I hiid come front
Grant, asked eagerly If tho story was
true. He was pacing np aud down In a
piece of a farm yard that looked like a
pig-pen, and I Could hot but think how
like his action was to thai of n wild bent
tn a cage. His face flamed (and hs.
clenched his (1st, as he-isld'tome! "I've
got 'mi, damn 'em, I've got 'em like
that:" and his nails were doubled Into hll
palm,        " '"    ,
In March, 1885, wh. In Grant was known
to he near his end, I was at his houte,
and Sheridan wrote ine th. following letter, enclosing a proffer of a ourialat the
Soldiers' Rome, Tb.li I wai to preient to
the family when the sad moment camw, '

The letting schooner Viva, Captain
Biker, owned by Csrne & Mumie,
arrived in the harbor yeiterday afternoon at 3 o'clock, from Behring'a Sea,
and ii berthed at Welch, Rithet & Oo.'s
wharf. The Yivshulud a mott prosperous season, having on board 2,009
■kini, and with 800 taken nn a previoui
trip, mallei a total of 2,875 for the
seaion'i catch. All the ikins were
taken in the Behring'i Sea, and during
the whole time the vessel w»i in the
tea nothing wai seen or heard of the
American cutters. Five white hunters
and five boati were employed, and during the season not the slightest accident occurred, All on board are well,
and during the trip nothing worthy of
note took place. Tho trip down wet
made in twelve dayi, the weather being
rough all the time. On the 26th of
August the schooner Row Olien wu
spoken in Behring'i Sea with nearly
500 skins on board. On the 10 inir.,
when in Queen Charlotte Sound, the
Mountain Chief wat spoken md reported a catoh of 825 skins. - Tho wind
which prevailed yeiterday wai favorable for all the homeward bound seal-
en, and those due may bo expected to
reach port to-day Colonist.

The Black Cd Baikal.
The tchooner Theresa, Capt. Olson,
which went north a couple of monthi
•go for the purpoto of letting the black
cod banks, returned at ten o'olook latt
niglit with nearly 3,000 ttih inth.
ttiiks, many of them weighing from
twenty to twenty-five pounds each.
The black cod were caught by the In.
diam and bought from thorn It twenty-
live cents per fiih. The sohooner
fished on a bank about five milei off
shore of Queen Charlotte islands, and
in 210 fathomi of water. The black
cod oiiited in huge number, and eagerly devoured the halibut bait. Had it
not been that the. tanks leaked nearly
double the quantity of fish could have
heen lecured, A trawl having 200
hooka wai let down from the schooner
and 50 fiah hauled up in an hour. The
catch would have been greater had not
the hooki became entangled one with
another.
About a mile offshore halibut banks
are io be found where flsli, sometimes
seven feetin length, oan be secured'in
largo numbers.. A schooner load wai
recently taken In ono day. Any kind
uf bait answer tor halibut, though the
Indiana generally ute that ot the devil-
fish, aa the halibut seem partial to it.
The iuccbii of the Thereia hni demonstrated the foot that the west coast
fisheries, if developed, will become a
profitable investment to thoso who on-
gage in it.—Colonist.      ■'"
Ju. Shannon,. Leaakdalo, writes : For
many yean my wife waa troubled with
chilblains, and could get no relief until
about two yean ago! she was then not
able to walk, and the pain was then so
excruciating that she could not iloep at
night. Your agent wu then on hii
regular trip, and she asked him If he
could cure nor. He told her Dr. Thomu
Eclectric Oil wu a sure curl, Sho tried
it, and judge of her astonishment when
in a few days tho pain wu all allayed
and the foot restored to its natural condition. It ia alto the belt remedy for
burns and bruises I ever used.
Some weeki igo, many indignant
citizens, whoso nerves were apparently
in a rather disorganized condition at the
time, besieged thii offlce to have ui
enter a publio protest against the
steamboat whistle nuisance. The protest wai entered in emphatic terms,
and, barring one letter on the subject,
that ended the matter md those who
promised to support our action have
gently subsided, content lor the
time being, The different artiolei
which appeared in Till" Columbian
were not long in reaching Capt, Irving,
manager of the 0, P. NT Co,, Who hot
informed Mr, T, L. Bring, thit he il
quite willing to puts stop to the whittling if it it the general with of ths
Weitmimter publio that it ihould be
stopped. But the matter must be
brought before the council in a regular
way—by petition—md prompt notion
will be taken. Thui the matter itandi
and it remains with the public either
to pau it or to let the whole matter
drop until another bunt of great indignation ia accumulated. That the
whistles have been a great civilizor in
days gone by, among the Indiana of
the lower Fruer, ii vouohed for by
Harriion River Joe, an ex-chief md a
very old man, who had reached man-
hood'a yean before the fint white man
■ettled on the Fruer. He sayi thit
before the advent of steamboats and
steamboat whurtlei murder wu a very
frequent occurence amongtheSiwaihei,
and aa a chief it wat the mott difficult
matter he had to combat with. The
tlighteit offence or aome trifling wrong
done towirdi one another was considered a legitimate excute for a fight to
the death; or, more frequently, treacherous murder. But by and by the
Great Sololicum (Evil Spirit), ths
ateamboat whistle, came along and
wakened every iloeping echo for miles
on either side of the mighty Fruer.
And then a great nwe crept into, ths
hearts of the gentle Siwsshes, snd it
seemed to them that the Great ■ Spirit
wu angry for the many crimes committed and he intented to let tbe Solo
licum haunt and terrify them until
the murderoui orimei ceased. By degree! crimei became leu frequent and
finally murder went out of tho heart
of the Siwaih, and to-day they are even
more careful of life than their white
brothen. It will thui be ieen that
the whittle did better work than mii-
sionariea for a time, but now that its
mission is accomplished we think it
ihould be laid away to rest, ai far ai
the city of Westminster is concerned.
■ . A BIwaak-CMueM Bantuee-
It is not many months ago since a
handsome half-breed Indian woman
and a Chincaemerchantof Chilliwhaok,
named Ling Sing, happened to meet
by ohanoe, and immediately the flame
oflovo wu let burning. The light
wniimallatth-itibot'Sff'theiltihtimaoy
ripHlfcd it WeiV'iatvitned very reipeot-
able proportions, and at last the love-
lick Lang popped the question tn hll
beloved Elisabeth, which the latter
accepted as bluthingly and timidly u
the muit veteran flirt or the untutored
maiden of iweet tixteen, who bean for
the fint time the thrilling md puiion-
■te voice ol love. Lang .wore by the
bones of his anceston and the eyet of
Oonf uciui that he couldn'taad wouldn't
attempt to live without her, and if ihe
uid ho to hit tender .proposition that
he would order the mourners and have
the chlokeni routed It once' for the
lut lolemnitioi over hii eruihed re-
nftel Such ansppeal as thii wss too
much for thofefider'heart'iyf KBinbeth,
and murmuring in the iweeteit Chinook
"nawitkn" ihe fell lobbing into Lmg'i
outstretched and eager arms. But ont
obstacle stood in the wiy of the loving
pair, and that wai the mother'i con-
lent, which could not be obtained even
under promiiM ot Urge quantitiei of
flour, pork and other dainty muck-amuck, Detpiir wu upon them and it
■eernsd thit two loving hurts were
going to break owing to the cruelty of
an unnatural mother, whoio only objection to her protpeotivo ion-in-law
wai the length of hair he wore. When
all argument! md offen hid been
■pent in viin the couple wiiely repaired to the nureit clergyman, a Presbyterian miniiter, and were legally united in the holy bonds nf matrimony snd
then returned to the mother and obtained, rather reluctantly, the bleuing
whioh she previously rs'usedtobestow.
For. time ill went merry as a marriage bell, and it leemed oi if . veritable Chinook zephyr wai blowing peace
and happineti in the direction of the
loving pair, filling their livot with joy
and rendering them more dear to each
other every day. But the cruel
mother had only given an unwilling
bleuing. and wu watching hor chance
to ipoil 'the dream ol love in which
Mr. and Mn. Lang reposed. She commenced hy dropping into tho ihop during the husband's abience patting
uncomplimentary remark" on the per-
ion of Lang, and making unfavorable
nimnariaone between, hlm and nme of
the handsome young brsvei of the
Chilliwhaok tribe. Little by little thit
aort of thing did iti work, and Ling
wai not long in finding a change had
come over hia dream. Thing! went on
indifferently until yeiterday morning,
when, at the tolioitation of nor mother,
Lizzie ran away from herhuibtnd, and
both boarded the iteamer Irving, leaving Ling to discover hii lo»i a few
houn later. When Long found hii
wife had flown he did not sit down and
weep, but without lots of time telegraphed Mr. Moresby, who arretted
both mother and daughter when the
Irving arrived in the oily yeiterday.
The mother ia oharged with inducing
Elizabeth to desert her lawful husband,
and the cau will come before Iho police
court to-morrow morning.
