SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Dr. Hall, of Yokohama, has successfully treated opacities of tho

• It will probably surprise most
people to learn that both cessation
of respiration and of movement of
the heart are rejected us signs of
death by a French lecturer,' in considering the precise moment when
life ceases. Heartbeats have been
known to continue for an hour after
the body was beheaded, while on
tho other hand, tliey may temporarily cease in fainting.
OltADKS   Of    CULTUHK.   —   Prof.
Joseph Le Oonte declares that for
every grade of culture, whether of
the individual or of the race,. there
is a corresponding1 .■grhW of "handwork necessary for the best brain-
culture. In the child of pro-school
age, and in the savage and in
palaeolithic man, it is the simple
use of the hand, or assisted by rude
implements; in tbe school boy or
girl, a* alto in the next higher
grade of races, it is by then use of
those finer instruments which we
call tools j and in the university, as
in the most civilized races, it is hy
tlie use of scientific instruments and
machines.

Grunt Allen buries tome barrels of

M KTHonoLouY or Mans.—Plam-
iiiitiioii has pointed out to the French
Academy of tifiencei' that the varying statu of the polar ice-caps of
Mars has long been carefully observed by Maedler,' Schinparelll,' tnd.
others, the inference being that this
planet is not yet, like our moon,
permanently frozen up. On the
contrary, its temperature is equal to,
if not higher than, that .of the earth,
and its polar snows melt periodically to fur. greater extent than on our
globe. This disposes of tho theory
that the canals are glacial rifts.
Perrotin lias continued his, observations, and notes that the linml
which rcoently covered the equatorial continent of Libya has subsided,

mostly separated.
Dbatii Givmii Oxvukx.- -It is a
curious fact, discovered by Dr. li \V.
Richardson, that pure oxygen becomes devitalized by ropeatod inhalations. Animals confined iu n current of freshly made pure oxygen
were differently nlleotcd, but never
became sleepy; but whon the oxygen oiioo inhaled was freed from all
known impurities and again suppli-
oil, the animals invariably tieetime
drowsy, fell asleep, aud, under siic-
Uesslve inhnlatious of the purilkd

In breathing, the'oxygen had under'

charged it is revitalized, and will
again support life.

LAST NIGHT'S DKSl'ATl'HKR.
NOT   A KKKE T1MUKH.
. Lonuon, Aug. 17.~Mr. Wiiliaiu
Henry Hurlburt, formerly uilitin;-i»-.
chief of the New Yorlf IVoritt, has
written a long letter to,the Ttmcs repudiating the coutontioii of. Urn Republican party of the United States
that President Cleveland's policy is
anti-Aroerican and, especially..contradicts the assertion, of Mr.'Blaine in
bis speeches since his return to
America. Blaine, Mr. Hurlburt says,
is endeavoring to raise a false issue in
accusing the Democratic party of favoring England in its tariff policy-
President Cleveland, the writer do-
dares, is not a free'trader, in,the.
senso of completely abolishing tho
customs duties as some Englishmen
imagine from tho assertions of the Republican press aud orators and the
general misleading tone adopted by
the Republican party, but in tlie main
advocates a policy contemplating the
relief of the manufacturers from taxation upon raw materials nnd improved
machinery. No serious reduction of
taxation upon completely manufactured,
foreign articles is intended or desirnblu,
and this, Mr. Hurlburt coutsnds, .is
quite as well known to Blaine an to
every other person in the United
States who will take the trouble to
acquaint himself with the facts and to
speak the truth concerning them.

SUBSIDY TO DE WITIIDHAWN.
Washington, Aug. 1&—Representative Fdtoii of California called on tho
postmaster-general yesterday and stated
that the New Zealand and Australian
governments had decided to withdraw
all subsidies which they had been paying
tbe American steamship Hue which vans
from San Francisco ib Australia unless
the United States government joins in
paying its share to support the service.
Mr. l-olton urged tho adoption of a more
generous policy toward the line, Tlm
postmaster-general stated that he would
communicate at onco with the New Zealand and Australian governments, stating that the U, S. would give this Hue a
full sea and inland postage in order to
maintain it. This will amount to about
940,000 a year. Whether the Australian
and NewZealand governments will accept
this partial support is unknown.

had a good camp outfit. They were seen
crossing the river near Casper last week.

Saturday Evealat,  An. IS. M*
Our friend of the Victoria Times
is trying lo "kick back." This feat!
is pre-eminently the prerogative of
the athletic mule, who "gets there
with both feet" every time. Our
reoalcitrant island cotemporary appears to lack the mule's judgment,
while displaying his lineage. He is
kicking desperately "against the
pricks," and doesn't "get there" at
all. The fact is, he has got caught
at his little tricks, and a certain allowance must be made for frantic
and irresponsible squirming. We
are sorry for our otherwise amiable
cotemporary, but trust that he will
learn the wholesome lesson that his
present deserved embarrassment is
fitted to teach—never, no matter
what the temptation, to deviate from
the path of rectitude. There is a
certain pathetic ludicrousness about
the disjointed and evasive appeal
which our cotemporary makes, more
to his own conscience tiian to anyone else, that induces us to refrain
from further harrowing his lacerated
feelings, overburdened as they evidently are with self-reproaches.
When our cotemporary's perturbations have somewhat calmed, he will
no doubt thank us for this delicate
consideration.
K P. Thomson, state fish commissioner for Oregon, writing on the
subject of hatcheries in a lute num-
bar of the Portland Oregonian, says:
"The connerymen and lishermen
operating on all the rivers except
Rogue want hatcheries. Rogue
river has u hatchery which has been
operated oil and on since 1877, and
this artificial propagation is accountable for the three-fold increase in the
run. Rogue river is the only river
on the Pacific coast which has been
fished continuously for a number of
years and can still show an increased
run. 1 think we will he able to
furnish each of the other streams
with ,100,000 eggs annually, which
will be taken from the Sacramento
river. It will require ten days to
ship tho eggs from Sacramento to
either of the rivers, and upon arrival
there tbe fishermen and cannerymen
will take care of them and turn,the
young fish into the river when the
hatching is complete, Sacramento
salmon rank next to Columbia river
salmon in quality, and is superior to
the full fish in Coos bay, Rogue,
Coquille, Umpqua, or Simsluw
rivers. All want hatcheries, but if
wc can supply them with eggs right
ulong, hatcheries will not be necessary. It would cost about $2,500
a year to operate a hatchery ou each
of the streams," By the foregoing
it will be seen that fish hatcheries
are, to say the least, very valuable
auxiliaries in maintaining and even
increasing the fish supply of rivers
that are being constantly fished.
The Fraser river salmon hatchery,
which was established in 1884—the
first eggs being put in during the
full of that year -has not yet hid
sufficient time to practically affect
the catch in the river. Fishermen
state that a few young grilse are
taken in the nets this year, ranging
under 18 inches in length. As this
is the fourth year from the hatching
of the first salmon eggs, it is surmised that some of these young fish
are the product of the hatchery here.
Owing to their small site, the majority, of course, would pass through
the nets, and in view of this consideration the fact that thoy are caught
occasionally may be taken as a proof
that considerable numbers are ascending the river. In a year or two
more the grilse will have attained
maturity, and in succeeding years it
may be fairly expected that the
work of the hatchery since its establishment will continue to have a
beneficial effect on the salmon fishing industry of the Fraser. As an
example of what the hatchery is
doing, Inspector of Fisheries Mowat
informs us that over 10,000,000 eggs
were placed in the hatchery last
year. A large percentage of these
should eventually return to the river
as full grown salmon, and it is reasonable to hope that with the establishment of better regulations for the
protection of the salmon, a large increase in the runs may in due time
be brought about. The fact must
not be lost light of, however, that
there is an immediate and urgent
demand for the protective regulations we have referred to. As set
forth in previous numbers of The
Columbian, there should be a considerable reduction in the number of
boats licensed to fish, fishing outside
of or near the river mouth should be
prohibited or greatly restricted, and
the present close time—only thirty
hours a week—increased. We shall
not go into detail! and say just how
these different reform! should be effected, but trust that the*proper authorities will look into the matter
and judge for themtelves.

Our Catholic friends in the American republic are taking high
ground on tlie temperance question.
From an exchange we learn tlmt
the Catholic Total. Abstinence, union
Of America held its. annual session
at Boston about the first of the present month. There was a large attendance of delegates from all parts
of the United States, including a
number of ladies, who for the first
time appeared at a convention. The
president, Rev. Father Thomas J.
Conaty, of Worcester, Mass., in his
opening address, laid:
Our union sprang from a sense of the
dangers thst beset men. It had its
origin in the endeavor to be better by
practicising self-denial bulli for the
sake of saving one's self and helping to
save others. The pledge it exacts ia
only the manly, Ghriatian resolution
to shun not only the liu of intemperance, but its occasions; to shun not
only tho abuse which all men are bound
in conscience to shun, but even its use,
lest the abuse follow. Recognizing u
source uf danger in the social customs
which generally prevail, and which become the occasion of the ruin of weak
souls, our union maintains, us a principle, that friendship and hospitality,
joy and sorrow, do not demand the
social glass, and it raises its hands lo
break down such customs. Weuronot
afraid to say with Cardinal Manning
that the drink traffic is tho parent of
intemperance; that it is a national
shame, a national folly tnd a national
danger. It is a shame to our Chriit-
ianitythatsobrutalizing,sodetrading,si>
inhuman a vice should not only flourish
among us, but actually rule us. The
most notable expression of this traffic
is the saloon as one of tho destroyors of
man. Yes, the saloon blocks our way
intellectually, morally and politically.
It blasts intellect, saps morality and
defiles politics. It is the one thing in
our community which cannot allege
man's good as a reason for its existence. Our union means war on the
saloon, and calls on its members to
shun it and its influences as they would
plague spots which cast on mind and
in heart the greatest curse that can infect thorn. The must effective prohibitory law is that observed by men
who are resolved not to enter the saloon, for this resolution would most effectively wipe it out of existence.
Letters of encouragement from many
prelates, including the archbishops
of Halifax and Winnipeg, were read.
General Secretary Philip A. Nolan,
of Philadelphia, in his report for the
year ending Aug. I, 1888, states:
There are now affiliated to the general union 23 subordinate unions and
48 detached societies. The union of
New Brunswick has disbanded,
while that of Brooklyn, which was
withdrawn, has since been re-admitted. The diocesan unions of
Grand Rapids, Midi., and Pittsburg,
Pa., have been admitted. During
the year 120 societies were admitted
and 87 dropped, leaving now on the
rolls 701 societies. Of these two are
in Nova Scotia and one in P. E.
Island. There aro S50 adult societies, with 33,971 members; 174
cadet organizations, with 13,705
members; 55 ladies' societies, with
5,040 members, and 12 girls' societies, with a membership of 1,039.
An address to the Catholics of the
country appealing for support and
assistance was read. Bishop Keane
was present and made a speech. The
election of officers resulted in the reelection of Father Oonaty as president. Mr. Nolan was re-elected
secretary. The convention will
meet at Cleveland, Ohio, next year.
The union decided to pledge itself
to raise $50,000 to establish a
Father Matthew chair in the new
university at Washington, in celebration of the centenary of the great
temperance apostle's birthday—Oct.
10th, 1890.

FIVE PIRATES BEHEADED,      .
A Former Naval oaeer Tell, the (lory
y* of a Bloody Election In. China. r ■ i
I While attached to the' United Stttei
steamer Wachusett, then orulsing lo th.
waters ot th. Asiatle station, we happened to he lent to Canton to protect
some of tha American merchants who
fanoted that the Chinese, who had been
making threats, wire going to give them
trouble.
On one occasion we were ashore tinder
the guidance ot a Chinaman and teeing
everything'curious that was to be seen,
when through the streets came a large
body of troops guarding five men carried
lu flat baskets suspended on bamboo rods
from the shoulder! of coolies.
"Sam, what art they going to do with
those men!" we asked.
"Oh," said he, "th.yar. pirates and th.
troops are going to ont off their heads,"
We followed, and in a short time cam.
to an open courtyard just off one of th.
main tboronghfarei of the eity, Th.
soldiers filed in on each side, and tbe
mandarin, who wrote the blue button,
seated himself In A chair.
A great crowd of peoplo had followed,
and the sentinels at the gate had great
trouble In keeping them back, We were
tn uniform, and when we were seen by
the officer of the guard he called the attention of tho mandarin to tbe fact,   '
We were immediately escorted to a
place of honor beside tbe mandarin, who
rose and bowed his respects; and told our
guide to explain to m why he was then
and why those five men were to loso their
lira.
They had been caught in the act
of piracy on the high teas by an English
gunboat and turned over to the China,
authorities for trial aud punishment.
They had had speedy trial, the act of
piracy having been committed six days
before.   -
While this explanation was going on
tho five prisoners were made to kneel on
the ground In Indian file, their "queues"
were colled up on tbe backs of their
heads, and with a slight inclination th.
backs of their necks were made perfectly
bare. An officer was sent for the executioner, and lie appeared, making .the
salute to the mandarin,
The prisoners were kneeling, their
bands tied behind their backs, and heavy
bamboo rods weighted nt each end wen
laid across the calves of their legs.
The mandarin roae and raid the warrant of exeoutlon. The utmost stillness
prevailed. On the faces of tho people
who had Hooked to see the execution! an
expression of fear and anxiety was depicted.
A command wai given, tho executioner
walked to the side of the first man, and
drawing a long, narrow knife from under
hit rob. .wilted the Order. Tbe supreme
momint had come; five lives were to he
taken. Tht men In the rear could see
every movement of the executioner and
of the man In front of him. Tothe"out-
ildt barbarian" It waa a fearful moment.
A command waa given, and In an in-
ataut the knife wai in tin- r.'.r and la the
next momint a head lay on the ground.
A great fountain of blood spurted from
the neck, and the executioner was betide
tbe nut nan. Again the command, and
a beadles, body th. result, aud iu lesa
than th. time it takes to writ, this line
'tho Ave mm were beheaded.
We ran to the bodies In our curiosity to
tee if any muscular action was taking
place, but there was boo. beyond th,
slowly closing eyelidi. The law wai vindicated. Tht troopi formed Inline,tbe
bead, were put in the baskets that lately
carried the bodies of the pirates, and tho
march wai reaumed through tbe city.
The bodli. wen thrown into a cart and
taken for burial outtlde tho city. Im answer to ou quMtiou at to what would be
dona with the Ave heads, w. wen told
that thiy would be placed on thi wall! of
the city al a warning to all evil doeri.—

ABE LINCOLN'S OLD LOVE.
Th, Venerable Woman Who -Inclinedto
Man/ mm In Her Girlhood.
Mrs. William Brenaii, of Ilonej Grove,
Tex., said to a newspnrer man recently:
"I was born in Bingham county, North
Carolina, In 181(1, but when quite young
moveiT with my parents to Sangamon
county, Illinois, where I lived until, lu
1849,1 moved to Texas.
"I knew Mr. Lincoln .well—knew nud
played'with him when he wore knee
breeches and went barefooted with tbe
rest of lis.
"We attended the same school in an old
log schoolhouse, presided over by what I
now know to have been n very primitive
but good old man. He didn't know
much, u men are educated these days;
but, lah, mel we used to think him a compendium of knowledge. And Mr. Lincoln (simply'Abe'then, though) was a
very apt scholar, always ahead In hit
itndlei.
"Ai a young man be was most exemplary—generous to a fault, chivalrous,
kiud, honest and trustworthy! and he
loved bli good old mother.
"One littl. Incident I never will forget.
"We .11 wmt to church one Sunday, a
creek being on tht wiy, over which w,
crossed on two ftllen logs. Mr. Lincoln
wu not present during, clitii-uh — was
awny, I believe, In Spl'Higfleld. Several
of us girls hail walked, as It waa a beautiful day. But just belorj church wu
out, the sky clouded up and it commenced
to rain very hard.-  -
"We girls, at the conclusion ot the service, wen sitting in the church waiting
for the rain to cease, when Mr. Lincoln
rodt up, Hit mother had also attended
service, and on foot. After the rain wu
over, h, assisted Mrs. Lincoln' on to hi,
horse, saying be would walk home with
tbe girls, which he illil.- But when we
came to tho creek tlie* logs had been
washed away and tlio water was fully
three feet deep.
"What to do wedldu'tknow, but young
Abe did. He comuit'iiced with me, and
carried us all over in.safely, till the lust
one, a very Aesby girl, win only left on
the wrong tide. He waded through after
her and took ber iu bis arms, starting
noross,
"We werl mikltig allsorts of fun of
them, and, laughing gnyly, when she,
being ii mischievous body, anyway, whispered something to him Which caused him
to give vent suddenly to a loud peal of
laughter, when, somehow, the gli-l slipped
from his arms, and both fell Ant Into th.
water. But it didn't spoil our fun In the
least. Why, bless your son), when w.
saw the two wocbegoiie-lookingcrentttrei
riie and wade to the shore wc laughed all
tho mon, and so did they. Those wen
good old times, indeed,
jj "It wu early in Iho aprlnn of 1834, one
evening when wo were out walking; that
Mr. Lincoln inked mi- tb marry lilm, but
as I bad. ulreaily funned an attachment
with nnd had promised to marry Mr.
Dreiiau, of course I refused blm. He
teemed to be quite sorry, hut in hit genial
way uid: ...  ,_■■
" 'Well, Martha, anyway, w. un always be good friends.'
"And we wen. I alwayi thought a
gnat deal of Abe, and hated to nfue
him, but circumstances were such that I
wu almost compelled to,
"When he heard of our Intention to remove to Texu Mr. Lincoln came over to
our hous. on a visit and remained three
dayi, trying bit best to dissuade us. My
maiden name waa Matilda Wllaon."

BRUTAL MURDER
A Drunken Qnarrel raises a Harder
this Afternoon.
This afternoon between IS and 4
o'clock an Italian named Joseph Cutea
murdered a half-breed Chilian, known
us Basket!. The scene of the murder
was the small lane at the corner of
the Merchant's hotel on Columbia st.
It appears the two men had been drinking heavily during the day and were
continually quarreling, but did not
come to blows. The frequent disputes
beosme so troublesome that both wero
put out of the hotel and told not to
comeback. An eye witness to the
murder informed a representative of
the Columbian that after reaching the
itreet the quarrel waa continued
and finally a blow was ttruck. Cotoa
struck Baskott on the breast with sufficient force to knock him down nnd the
moment the unfortunate reached the
fround Cotea raised his foot and gave
laskettn terrible kick on the aide of
tho head. No snoncr had tho kick
been given than Basket! doubled
up, turned over on hi! faco
and never moved ogaiti. Death was
almost instantanei'US. Tho police
were informed and Cotea was arrested

The lire un.
Sells' circus last night was attended
by almost every one in town, and fully
1,000 people from tin; <: >mitry. Tho
cxciuo given by venerable parents1
forjbeing present whs "the children
wanted to see the circus." Thoy were
probably correct, but somehow' the
parents were ns well plumed 'with
what they saw as wore tho children,
The bare back riding was excellent,
considering the size of tho I ing, mul l Im
jumping, tumbling, and balancing
feats wero all first-class. The educated
donkeys were most amusing and afforded fun to the audienco, but tho
moat enjoyable part of the exhibition
was Sidney, (he elephant, This animal has been most perfectly trained
and acts in a maimer almost human.
The side shows were very interesting
and the attractions in the sbapo of fat
women, thin men, dwarf--, etc, wero
worth a visit. The circus left for Vancouver at an early hour this muniing
and will show there to-day.
The superiority of Mother (.'raves'
Worm Exterminator is shown by Its good
effects on she children. Purchase a Iwt-
tie and give it ft trial.
There was" considerable ' escitenient
yesterday morning in the vicinity of
the leather parliament buildings, and
tho doors were besieged with people
longbeforo tho usual hour for opening.
Countrymen were excitedly rushing
up and down enquiring of cveryoue
thoy met as to where auch nnd such a
member, lodged, fir when the house
would.meet and if there was any
charge for admission. To the many
enquiriessoveral veteran members, who
-wtfre enjoying their morning pitw* outside the house,' returned satisfactory
answers, and in cases where the visitors were known to bi men of importance and political influence, they
were furnished with tickets for the
speakers' gallory. The great circus
bad attracted number* of visitors to
the city who for . the most part ■ hud
determined to blend business with
pleasure and cdme prepared to press
their representative to gain some do-
sired ends for them. As tho members
began to drop iu by twos and threes
thoy wero instantly captured by delegations of their constituents who
threatened all sorts of dire calamities
if their petitions were not instantly
acceeded to. It was in vain the hon,
members explained that each mutter
must go through the regular course in
the house. The country gentlemen
would not beletve it, aud declared
open rebellion would result if oven
.their smallest wish was not granted.
A few of the veteran members, with
considerable diplomacy, directed the
steps of their delegations to a neighboring saloon, and by judicious conversation and a liberal supply of Canada's
national beverage managed to lead the
country gentlemen's thoughts in an
opposite direction.
It was some minutes after the speaker
took tho chair before order could be
restored, and the sergennt-at-arms
found it necessary to ejeot 3 Chilliwhack gentlemen, 5 voters from Port
Moody nnd 6 from Ladners in order to
show tlr;' tho dignity of the .hou.se
must not be trifled with.
Tho hon. member forWoatherguage
waa. the first to obtain the iluor and
rose to enter a protest against tbe
action of the Corean government in
charging missionaries with eating native children. The thing, he caid,
was prepostorous, but supposing it
were true he would like to know how
nmny missionaries the Coreans had
fried, Hluved and boiled. Ho Was a
lover of fair play, and if tlie mi&sion-
uriea tuund they held the winning
hand and wished to play even on the
natives, by eating an occasional youngster, lie thought they had a perfect
right to do so, and the government
should be witling to support them by
force of arms if necessary.
The hon. member for Matsqui agreed
with liifi colleague and expressed tho
miK't'ir hops that tho charge against
the missionaries Was true. The natives of the South Sea Islands had had
control of cannibalism too long and it
was time the tables were turned.
Fresh meat was a scarce article in the
south sens and it was rather hard on
the missionaries to compel theni by
force of circumstances to become vegetarians. And if an occasional child
was b;u'li'.H'iit-d the loss to Corea would
not be great, as the natural supply
was much larger than the demand.
On motion of the hon. member for
Hallerton the house adopted a resolution approving of the course latterly
adopted by. the missionaries, and promising them a hoarty support if their
feasts   should   be    interfered1 with.
The hon. member for Port Moody
skid he took raucK pleasure in informing the house that tho great circus waa
hourly expected to arrive, und ho
thought it waa only a matter of com*
mon courtesy that a deputation from
the house should await the. arrival of
the steamer at the wharf and give the
circus people a right royal welcome to
the city. - He said if this; course was
adopted the proprietors might be induced to grant passes to every member
of the house. Although no member of
the house cared to visit the circus on a
complimentary ticket, yet if the proprietors were generous enough to grant
complimentary tickets he thought the
dignity.of tho. house would.not be
compromised if it condescended to sic
cent them. t \
.The hon. member for Harrison
thought the deputation should bo. immediately selected, and, although no
member of the house desired a pass,
he thought it would be well to send
the deputation down the river to meet
the steamer so that the passes would be
ready for the members the moment the
circus reached tho wharf.
The deputation was appointed and
withdrew from the house to fulfill its
mission. •
The hon. member for Cemetery ville
introduced a deputation .of .country
gentlemen who curried a petition setting forth their various wants. The
partition asked that the tax on whiskey,
tobacco and cigars \>\\ abolished, tlio
price ofiwlieit fixed at gii.fiO per
bushel, Bflgi i>l. >i> cents par dozen, p<>-
fcatoes at3*-0.poi*.ton ami ali lines of
dry tff'Ou.'r at half o«Mt pric-i, . It1 sup-
porting this petition the li'in. member
mi id the demands were just and sh<nild
receivo the careful attention <>f tho
house. The majority should govern in
all cases, nnd as the farmers wore in the'
majority he considered they had a per*
feet right to arrange tho taxes to suit
themselves. He would ask the hon.
members present how they would feci,
if depending on hent for a living, if
uiy.a only brought 20 cents per dozen
and at the same time whiskey waa $3
por gallon. At this rate it would take
the united energies of 50 hens to keep
an honest man in whiskey, even supposing ho did not drink more than one
gallon por week, which every member
present would admit to be a very
small allowancofcries of "Yes 1 yea I
not half enough, etc.) It was aaerioua
matter and he thought a special committee should he solected to report on
the subject at the next sitting of the
house.
The hon. members for Scott's Road,
Matsqui and Cemetoryville were appointed a committee, with power to
add to their number, to consider the
petition, summon witnesses and ascertain thu possibility of reducing tho
price of liquors.
At this moment the circus deputation entered the house, flushed and
excited, bearing a massive bundle of
complimentary tickets for the show.
The speaker endeavored to get them
for the purposo of checking the numbers, but the boh. members ntshed tn j
and helped themselves so generously
that there was no ticket for the speaker when the deputation reported to
him. A considerable uproar was
caused by the speaker, and a fight was
soon in progress betweeu that gentleman and the sergeant-at-arms, who
had managed to corral two tickets.
Considerable confusion followed, during which the doors were locked and
the house hastily adjourned.
Mrs, Crawford ftktps.
At 3.20 o'clock this morning a lonely hackman drove down the Esqui-
malt road and turned into tbe avenue
leading to the Naval Hospital. He
drew up his steaming steeds at the
gate of a small farm occupied by Mrs,
Crawford (ot tlie notorious Menzies
case), the woman who waa charged
with enticing a young Chinese girl to
unlawfully cohabit with a Chinaman
named Ah Chee. The unprepoaing
widow emerged from the . house
and entered the hack which was
closed up and thu curtains drawn down.
The horses were then turned towards
the city and driven at a rapid rate to
the Alaskan; On arriving at tho
wharf the hackman purchased a ticket
for Seattle and took it to the comely
widow,, who remained in the hack.
When the steamer blew her last
whistle tbe woman stepped out of the
back and bid farewell to Victoria. She
stepped sprightly on board nnd is now
in the land of the free. This morning
her case was called in the police court
but at the request of Mr. Walls was
adjourned until to-morrow. She-is
out on her own recognizance in the
sum of 950, and her non-appearance
this morning to answer the charge or
renew, the bail shows very plainly that
she had no intention to appear for
trial. It will be in order f'jr the senior
editor of our morning contemporary to
take a trip and bring the woman back.

HnMwar,
This morning a team of horses attached to a heavy wagon, on the seat
of which was a child lets than 5 years
old, while standing in front of Mr.
Rousseau's store, took fright and dashed np Columbia street at a high rate of
speed. Numerous efforts wore made
to stop them, but without effect as tbe
cries seemed to add to their fright nnd
increase their speed. Tho position of
the child was most precarious und tlie
onlookers momen'arily expected to
see the little fellow thrown to the
ground, but he clung bravely to the
seat until opposite Dr. Mclnnes' house
when he dropped into tho box and remained safe.. Mr. D. McPhadden,
who saw the horses pass his store, instantly grasped tho situation, nnd
jumping on a horse's back, started
full speed in pursuit of the runaways.
He was successful in overtaking the
team when a short distance past Oapt.
Robinson's and riding along side
grasped the reins and managed to
bring them to a stand still, the little chap was found in the bottom of
the waggon, safe and sound though
somewhat frightened. Neither the
horses or waggon, which belong' to a
Pitt Meadow farmer, nainuil Wise,
were damaged.' Hitching posts are
quite numerous along the si roc ts aud
owners of horses', particularly firmer*,
should Becure themselves against such
accidents by making use of of them,
The Eloper* Caught.
Ou Sunday a man named Millard L.
Cantrell, accompanied by a, prepossessing looking young girl named Clara
C. Low, arrived by the train and took
rooms at the Central Hotel as man
and wife. Cantrell, who is a blacksmith by trade, obtained work at -the
V. C. Company on Monday. Everything went merry us a marriage bell
till the train arrived yesterday, bringing the mother and step father of the
young girl,! The parents brought up
a warrant signed by This. Shotbolt of
Victoria, for the arrest of Cantrdll on
a charge of seducing their daughter
Clara C. Low. who will not be 16 years
of ago till December next,, Chief Constable Stewart and Constable O'Con-
nell proceeded to execute the warrant,
but thoy found.that loth the girl and
her alleged paramour had left. It
seems that the girl, who appears to be
deeply infatuated with Cantrell, saw
her parents and at once went over .to
the V. C. Co.'a shop and gavo Cantrell
warning. The couple then tied in the
direction of Chinatown, but theargus-
eyes of Constable O'Connell were soon
oil their track and that, officer arreatel
the couple in tho woods near the railway track. | Cantrell was lodged in
jail, aud as ho was entering the jail'
door, the girl flung her arms around
his nock exclaiming "I luvo you and
will love you always," The girl was'
taken to ber parents and the man
languishes in jail until this morning;
when he will be taken to Victoria for
trial,
Cantrell is aaid tn be a married man
sued 35 years, and left his wife and
children in Washington territory. The
stepfather's name is Albert Anthooy
Benard, and he resides at Ellenaburg,
Kittates County, W. T.
