. Tho Ball Mall's Gazctte't Berlin
correspondent says: News has
been received from Egypt to the
effect tlmt the tomb of Alexander
the Gnat, which Dr. Schlicinann
sofcght in vain last winter, has now
been discovered in Alexandria.
Tho coffin is of marble, and is
covered with beautiful decorations,
Its breadth is about three feet and a
half, and its height three feet. The
skull of a man was found in it.
Thn coffin was found in a brick
wait, about twenty feet high, covered by about eight feet of earth.
The keeper of the museum at
Boulak is going ihortly to make .
thorough examination of the tomb.
A suit has been cowiowmced
ugainst James G. and Mrs. Blaine
'.whioh nmyh.ive some influence in tlie
politieal contest. Mr. Blaine's son
when aged 19 married Miss Nevius,
aged 10, a Roman Catholic. The
match was strongly disapproved on
both sides. The parents became
reconciled afterwards exoept Mrs,
Blaine, sen., who commenced a
course of eonstant nagging towards
her girlish daughter-in law, and
finally contrived to bring about a
separation. Mrs. Blaine, jun., now
sues, not for divorce, being a Roman
Catholic, but for damages caused
by the alienation of the affections
of her husband. A good deal of ill-
feeling is likely to be engendered by
the suit.
An exchange says: A convention has been called to meet in
Switzerland next year for the purpose ef discussing what steps ought
to be taken by Christian nations
for the suppression of immoral
literature. The discussion may do
somo good by directing attention to
what is generally acknowledged by
sociologists to be an evil, but there
is little likelihood of the convention'
coming to an agreement when the
question arises as to what classes of
literature are to be prohibited.
There are purists for that matter
who would put a ban upou Shakespeare. There is another set of
people who would object to the
interdiction of any works which are
termed classical. It will be difficult
to reconcile the differences between
these divergent opinions.

Impertinence uocasionnlly meets
with a signal rebuke. The following is a good instance of the kind:
Small man (on railway train,
writing letter to his wife)—"It
would afford you some amusement,
my dear, if you could see the freckle-
faced, long, lean, gamble-shanked,
knock-kneed, sneaking, impertinent,
ill-bred, hul'-baked specimen of a
backwoods gawky that is looking
over my shoulder as I write this"—
Largo man on seat behind (fiercely)
—"You lie, you little scoan ■"
Small man (turning around)—"Beg
pardon, sir; are you speaking to
met" Large man (confusedly)—
"Y—no ! No ! I didn't sny anything. I wasn't speaking. I—I
—" Small man resumes his writing.
Large man goes back to tho rear
platform of the last oar on the train
aad relieves hii mind by swearing
volubly at the flying landscape.
Mr, Gladstone has always taken
unintelligent interest in American
matters, and.when invited has not
been slow to give his opinion upon
subjects which were being discussed
in the United Stutes. The secretary of the National Divorce Reform League of the United States
recently sent him some statistics,
and Mr. Gladstone proved that he
had very deeided views' about marriage nnd divorce, He said that
the condition both of Uw and practice touching divorce in some of tbe
States of the Union, and the facts,
causod him some alarm us to tho
future of the great Republic. Ho
ndded that he held by iho law of
"the whole Western Church, which

The Cincinnati Enquirer snys:
A most interesting experiment culminated to-day in thn raising of
some wheat grown from seed as
old as the oxodus. The experimenter is Duvid Drew, who last year
received from a friend ill Alexandria, Egypt, some grains of wheat
taken from a mummy exhumed near
the ruins of Memphis, and belonging,
it is belicvi (1 to the period of the
ninth dynasty, which would make
it grow about 3,000 yean, B. 0., or
nearly 5,000 years old. He planted
ihe s«d early in tho spring and
carefully nursed it. It grew rapidly, und at the timo of cutting
measured from six and one-half to
seven feet high. The leaves alternate on the stalk like common wheat,
but the product of the plant il the
most singular part of it, for instead
of growing in nn ear like modern
oorn there is a heavy cluster of
small twigs in place of the spindle,
which bangs downward from its
weight, and eaoh twig is thiokly set
with kernels, each of which is in
a separate husk. From what is
thrashed a large crop will be grown
next year, as the result proves this
to exceed in quality anything
modern grain can grow,

THE CELESTIAL   CAIKIO.
San Francisco, Nov. 2 —The str.
Oity of Sydney, the first to leave Hong
Kong after the signing of the exclusion bill, arrived late last night bringing only 2G Chinese passenge», Five
of these are for Sau Francisco, while
only sii arc destined for Victoria, the
remainder going to Panama, Honolulu
tnd Havana. The str. brings the
following advices: Cholera has taken
a strong hold upon the native population in Pekin, and deaths are increasing daily.
It is reported that the Chinese
government has under consideration
a scheme of tariff reprisals as uii
offset for tho prohibition of Chinese
from entering the United States.
There has been n heavy typhoon in
the China sea and several vessels had
narrow escapes. One steamer was
blown 300 miles out of her course and
coal being exhausted for three days
used sugar fur fuel.
THE   STRIKE OVElt.
San Fiunolsco, Nov. 2.—A cablegram this morning states that the
great coal strike in Australian mines
has been terminated.
NEARLY   BLOODSHED.
Winnipeg, Nov; 2,—Bloodshed was
imminent inst night at the disputed
railroad crossing. The running up uud
down the -road uf an engine by the
Canadian Pacific people exasperated
the government forces and arranging
a train they watched their chance and
backed it up against the Canadian Pacific engine. The arrival of tho militia
at this moment with loaded carbines
and 35 rounds of cartridges each prevented n collision which was about, to
to take place between the opposing
forces. The government intends to
have Superintendent Why to arrested
for interfering with their special police
and obstructing a public highway with
an engine. Owing to the urgent representations of the Canadian Pacific
and the belief that the government
will spring a mine of some kind, the
military have been ordered into camp
at the crossing, and they will probably
remain there for some time.
A LARGE PURCHASE.

London, Nov. 2.—Gladstone and
Sir Wm. Harcourt will be examined
before the Pardell commission iu regard to tho statements in Capt.O'Shea's
testimony relative to the Kilmainham
tragedy. Harcourt writes that he will
take steps to contradict O'Shea's statements tn material particulars. Ho
says some of O'Shea's assertions wero
fictions.
POSSIBLY RIGHT,
London, Nov. 2.—The Star, T. P.
O'Connor's paper, says: "Lord {Salisbury is not likely to listen to the demand for the dismissal of Phelps, U.S.
ministor, in retaliation for America's
treatment of Sackville, Such a step
might do much harm and could do no
good. All are agreed that Bayard's
courtesy is scant but wo mnst
not forget that ho is technically
right. Lord SackvuVti indiscretion
warranted tho demand for hia recall.
If Salisbury's reply to tho demand
amounted to a refusal thero is a good
deal more to be said for the action of
America than Englishmen aro just now
LATE DESPATCHES.
THE FRENCH REPUBLIC.
Paris, Oct, Oot. 25.—In the chamber of deputies to-day M. Peytral, the
minister of finance, spoke indefenoe
of the budget. He said it was an imperative necessity to retain the extraordinary war budget for several years
longer. The war estimates for the
current year amount to 130,000,000
francs. The total sum asked by the
minister uf war is 918,000,000 francs,
of which amount 220,000,000 francs has
already been voted.
THE VATICAN.
London, Oct. 25.— Tho London
Telegraph, in a diBpatch from Rome,
publishes an interview of its correspondent with the pope, in which it is
remarked that the pope's health is
good considering hii age, and that the
learned protate is not himself writing
a history of the Roman Episcopate
In regard to the late visit of Emperor
William, the pope said: "I cannot say
that I wss either satisfied ur dissatisfied. I did not find that he resembled
his father, whom I personally knew
and likecU The Emperor .Frederick
was a wise and good prince, well-read,
intelligent, and large-minded; hi* manners were perfect. What he mid nas
always full of good sense and g- ud
will. The pope appeared to be satisfied with the present relations between
Germany and the Vatican. Prince
Bismarck, he said, was a reasonable
man, and was willing to accede to any
just requccta. Count Herbert Bismarck was also, in the highest estimation, a sensible and earnest man. In
regard to education the pope said that
he cuuld not. consent to Germany'a
keeping in her own hands the exclusive
education of Catholic children.
A MINISTER'S MINING SWINDLE.
Boston, Mass., Oct. 25.—About
three yean ago two colored men and
two white men came to this city to dispose of shares in the Alba Mining Company of New York, of which they said
thoy were officers. There wero 200.-
000 shares to be sold at $5 per Bhafe.
One of the visitors was a colored
preacher who was formerly connected
with a church in this city, and through
his efforts apout $4,000 worth of stock
was disposed of among tho colored
people of West -Bud. Some white
poople of this city also bought shares.
It has just beon learned here that
people of Cincinnati wno were also led
to buy shares through the statements
uf a colored minister, have found that
there is no Alba Mining Compnny in
existence. Tho Cincinnati minister
has pecn arrested, but tho alleged
swindlers have thus far escnped arrest.
OVER THE SEA.
Victoria Civic Ippetnlmenls.
The selection of a superintendent uf
police to fill the vacancy caused by the
retirement of Mr. Bloomfield was the
more important of the two appointments to bo made last evening. After
several ballots, Sergt. Henry Sheppard,
who has been temporarily acting ss
chief, was appointed to the position.
The action of the civic board will, we
think, be endorsed by tlie great majority of our citizensi Although among
the applicants there were thoee who
would have filled the post with acceptance, yet the fact that Mr. Sheppard has been for many years an efficient and painstaking officer, and has
proved himself well qualified to fill the
position, had its proper weight with
the aldermen. It is but juit, all
things being equal, that a member of
tho forco should receive promotion
when an opportunity occurs. Supt.
Sheppard has always shown himself
worthy of his place, and we have every
confidence that, as superintendent of
police, he will prove an efficient chief
and an excellent disciplinarian.
After several ballots Rov. J. Dowler
was elected city clerk. So far as civio
business is concerned, Mr. Dowler is a
novice, but that is no reason why he
should not develop into a first-class
official. He has a clean sheet to work
upon, and being a scholarly gentleman,
will, with experience, no doubt fill the
position with credit.—Colonist,
A Visiter from Ike Ceast.
Mr. F. G. Strickland, of Westminster, B.C., has been on a visit to the
old scenes of his early days In this district. He is a Gait boy, and an ex-
pupil of the Gait collegiate Institute,
and like almost every othor boy from
tho Little Manchester who has set out
to make his own way iu the world, has
dono well. Mr. Strickland, who is a
practical and experienced millwright,
saw opportunities for building up a
business in the new province in the
machinery line, and accordingly embarked therein. He how handles all
classes of machinery, implements, A*c,
manufactured east, and un his return
this time takes home with hiin tho
products of such ■■st-ihiUhments ns
Goldie & McCullough's. Maxwell's and
other well-known shopd. Talking to
tho Review, Mr. Strickland gives a
glowing account of the present prosperity and future good prospects of the
Pacifio province. It ia rich, he lays,
in everything tending to promote the
comfort and well-being uf its inhabitants. The climate is delightful. All
classes of grain, except wheat, grow
luxuriantly. Small fruits are raised in
great abundance and there is a market
for theao products in China aud Japan.
There aro vast tracts of splendid fund
awaiting settlement, and farmers, with
a little capital havo a chance nowhere
else, offered them in the Dominion.
Tho farms at present oecupied boast
fine houses and barns, showing Ihe
owners to be well-to-do. In a word,
Mr. Strickland declares that British
Columbia is the finest land under the
sun and that auy man with energy, intelligence and a little means can succeed there far better than in older and
more settled parts of the Dominion,—
Paris, Ont., Review,
Mr.  Henry Harding,   of   Toronto,
writes*. "My little daughter, 7 years of
age, has been a terrible sufferer this winter from rheumatism, being for weeks
confined to her bed, with limbs drawn

The Vancouver News lately had
an editorial article coniuionding the
provincial government at considerable length for the manner in
which they carried out tho rocent
sale of public lands at Vancouver,
and also for the very just nnd satisfactory arrangements which they
made with the 6011a fide squatters
on the land in question—who, our
readers will recollect, were enabled
to purohase the land on which thoy
had settled for the nominal figure
of $2.60 per acre. Tho Victoria
limes, ai a loyal opposition organ,
naturally goes for its Vanoouver
cotemporary, and propounds several
questions calculated to break the
Newt man all up. Incidentally the
Times takes the mime of Tim Oo-
lumman in vain, nnd asks the Vancouver paper: "What was the
nature of the 'arrangement' which
a mainland paper (The Columbian
in fact) states was made by tho government with parties at the sale 1"
The Mews answers tho questions
of its Victoria catuhiser (with tho
exception of the one above quoted),
to the satisfaction, we should think
—if discomfiture would not be the
better word—of the latter. The
query above it refers to this paper
In these words: "Probably the
paper which the Timet refers to will
itself explain what it meant and if
it does it will perhaps be found that
it referred to a statement in our
columns," etc. We cannot flatter
the Mews by saying that we "referred to a statement in its columns."
As a newspaper, we make it our
business occasionally to find out
things for ourselves. In this particular case we happened to be the
only paper that took up the cause
of the squatters, before the sale,
when we urged the government, in
justice to the bona fide settlers and
in the best interests of the province,
to contrive lome means, oven if irregular, to save this settled upon
and improved laud from the grasp
of the land speculators, and at the
same time to enable the actual settlers to purchase their homesteads
at the nominal price of $2.50 per
acre. This the government practically did. Tlie squatters themselves were naturally pleased, and
have publicly expressed their satisfaction; the province has benefitted
by the lands remaining in tho hands
of actual settlers instead of passing
into those of speculators; aud the
government deserve the commendation they have received in this matter, altogether apart from party con
siderations.
The following is of such genuine
and peculiar interest that we make
no apology for giving it space in
our columns. A Dennisville, N. J.,
correspondent of the New York
Times says: An industry the like
of whioh does not exist anywhere
else in tbe world furnishes scores of
people in this part of Kew Jersey
with remuneratiye employment, and
has made comfortable fortunes for
many citizens. It is the novel business of mining cedar trees—digging
from far beneath the surface immense logs of sound and aromatic
cedar, The fallen and submerged
cedar forests of southern Kew
Jersey were discovered fint be
neath the Dennisville swunips 75
years ago, and have been a source of
constant interest to geologists and
scientists ever since, There nre
standing at the present day no such
enormous specimens of cedar anywhere on the face of the globe us
ore found inbeilded in the deep muck
of the Dennisville swamps. Some
of the trees have been uncovered
measuring six feet in diameter, and
treei four feet through are common.
Although ages must have passed
since these, forests fell and became
covered innny feet beneath the surface, such trees ns fell, according to
the scientific theory, while tbey
were yet living trees are as sound
to-day us they were the day of their
uprooting. Such trees are called
"windfalls" in the nomenclature of
the cedar mines, aa it is thought
they were torn up by tbe roots during some terrible gale of an unknown past. Othen are found in
the wreck that were probably dead
treei when they fell, and to these
the minen have given the name of
"break-down!." Tbe peculiar
action of the wind and water in the
•wamp hai kept these break-downs
at the same stage of decay they
were in when they fell, as the same
agency has preserved intact the
lounduess of the living trees. The
theory of those who have made thia
mysterious collection of buried
cedar trees a itudy is that they, in
tome unknown age, formed a vast
forest that grew in a fresh-water
lake or swamp that covered this
portion of New Jersey, the properties of tlio soil of which were neces
aary to tho forest1! existence. Ac-
ling to Clarence Demning and
, .**W*gTto':*Ma*%, eminent geo-
W*"-™»H«esmMuthern New
Jen*-', the ___ either broke in upon
the swamp, or th. land subsided
-- .the'Mtwater reached tha trees.
»»stroyedtheUf. of many of
■ anil lutnequiniiy gome pre
historic oyclone swept over the
forest and levelled it to the earth.
The heavy trees gradually sank into
the soft soil of the swnnips until
they reached the substantial earth
or rock beneath it, where they reposed, unknown and undisturbed,
until their presence was accidentally
discovered in 1812. Ever since
then the logs havo been mined, and
havo been an important factor in
the commercial and business prosperity of South Jersey. The buried
forest lies ntvarious depths in the
swamp, and the uncovering of the
Wees or Working the "cedar mine" is
done in a very simple and easy
manner. The log miner enters the
swamp and prods in the soft soil
with a long, sharp, iron rod. The
trees lie so thickly beneath the surface that the rod cannot be pushed
down amiss on its testing errand,
for the prodding is not so much in
search of a tree as it is to test
whether the tree is a "windfall" or
a "breakdown." When the prod
strikes the log the miner chips off
a piece with the sharp point of the
tool, whioh brings the chip or
splinter to the surface when drawn
out of the muck. By the appearance and order of this chip the
miner can tell at once whether the
tree he has tested is a sound or a
dead ono. If the former, he quickly
ascertains the length of the trunk
by prodding along from one end of
it to tbe other. That ascertained,
he broceeds at once to raise the log
from its hidden bed. Ho works
down throughthe mud a saw similar
to those used in sawing out ice to
till an icehouse. With this he saws
tho log in two as near the roots as
he cares to. Tho top of the tree is
next sawed off in the some way, and
then the big cedar stick is rcudy to
be released from its resting placo.
A ditch is dug down to tho log, tho
trunk is loosened by cant hooks,nnd
it rises with tho water to the surface
of the ditch. A curious thing is
noticed about these logs when they
come to the surface, and thnt is
that tbey invariably turn ovor with
their bottom sides up. 'After mining the log is easily "snaked out" of
tbe swamp and is, ready for the mill
or factory. These ancient trees nre
of a white variety of cednr, nnd
when cut huve the same aromatic
flavor intensified many degrees that
the common red cedar of the present day hus. The wood is of a delicate flesh oolor. One of the mysterious characteristics of these long-
sunken trees is that not one has
over been found to bo water-logged
in the slightest. It is impossible to
tell how many layers deep these
cedars lie in the swamps, but it is
certain that there are several layers,
and that with all the work thnt has
been done in constantly mining
them during three-quarters of a
century the first layer has not yet
been removed from the depths. At
some places in the Dennisville
swnmp the soil has sunk in for
several feet and become dry, and
thero the fallen cedars may be seen
lying in great heaps, one upon tho
other. No tree has ever been removed from tho Dennisville swamp
from n greater depth than five feot,
but outside the limits of the swamp
they have been found nt a great
depth, whioh shows tho correctness
of the deep-layer theory, Near
the shore of the Delaware, eight
miles from Dennisville, white cedar
logs have been exhumed from a
depth of 12 feet. At Cape May,
20 miles distant, drillers of an artesian well struck one of tho trees
00 feet below the surface. It was
lying in an alluvial deposit similar
to the Dennisville swamp. Another log was found at Cape May
20 feet below the surface, and a
third at a depth of 70 feet. These
deeply-buried logs were among the
largest ever brought to light, and
their location so far away from the
Dennisville marsh indicates the
groat orterit of that ancient forest
area. The uses to which the cedar
logs are put n i; many. The principal use is thu making of shingles
and slaves. Tho longevity of articles
made from the wood is shown in
shingles, tubs, pnils, and casks
made from it over 70 years ago,
and which have yet to show the
slightest indication of decay. The
shingles and staves are worked into
shape entirely by hand, nnd tho
only machine work that is permitted
in manipulating the cednr logs being
the sawing of them into proper
lengths for the uses to which the
lumber is to bo put. The Dennisville cedar shingles command n
price much higher limn tho best
pine or chesnut shingles. What it
is in tho amber-coloured swamp
water and red mud at Dennisville
that preserves these trees so that,
after the lapse of conturics, their
fibre is as clean and smooth and
strong as it was when the green
branches of the cedar were waving
ovor the swamp is a mystery the
scientific men have as yot been
unable to solve.

J 'MARRIAGE IN JEST.
THE   LAW3   OF   NEW   YORK   MAY
MAKE THI8 A SERIOUS MATTER.
Rann.no. off - tho Olll-Owynne Affair
—Tb. Story after Nuptial. Told by an
Intimate Frlena-An Authentic Statement Mado for the lint Time.
taptrightim.)
It Is iafo to assume that not a year pastel ln the rec-d ol the amazing marriage laws oxistinc in tho Emptro State,
without some inchcplsodoaa that of the
tamed escapade ot V. Fearing GUI and
Edith OUT. Gwynnejonly then do not
aiaftlly lsiJc out. It has taken some timo
lo Ret st "the facts In this now f.-.mous
ease,whioh would never have atSaiaed its
extraordinary celebrity but that It happened at a time when the Metropolitan
press waa languishing from a dearth of
news, add ln a ripe condition to magnify
a mole-hill into a mountain. Tho accidental marriage ot a couple ln jest, and
their speedy awakening to the dangerous
serlousnesi ot such a diversion, is no novelty in the Stato of New Vork. Some of
the features ln thla case, however, now
for th. first time made known, are certainly exceptional. It haa only recently
been revealed how the news of tho alleged
marriage reached the New York papers.
It appeared flnt, through the breach of
confidence of a whilom bosom friend of
tbe bridegroom of an hour. This Judas
sold hia benefactor out for a pitiably
email mess of pottage It appears, and left
htm to the by no mean, tender mercies ot
the reporter! who All the columns of the
Metropolitan press. This wai the flnt
ihot ln the f uallade of sensationalism that
ensued. -Following It came the midnight
siege of the press haunted litterateur, his
rude awakening from bis slumber by tho
advance guard of scribe pickets, and their
defiant threat to publish a story that had
come to their newspaper through a "side-
door," unless their victim succumbed to
their coercion nnd yielded up the faota to
the.n. A near friend of Mr. Gill, assures
the writer of this article, and he Is in possession of all the facts, that nothing but
apprehension that a warped and distorted
tissue of lies compromising to nn estimable lady would bo publiihed, otherwise,
forced from him the reluotantudmission of
tbe civil marriage contract. Faced with
tho Issue that ho had been betrayed by a
false friend, mado evident .from the fact
that his houso address bad beon glvou to
the reporters by this Judas.li is only alternative then, was to give himself up as
a target ot public discussion rather thau
Imperil the name of a young lady. A
lecond chapter of this now celebrated case
was opened by the return of tho Viinder-
bllti, and society's curiosity was whetted
to a keen edgo, The conviction that some
inexplicable mystery existed, was deepened by tho knowledge, to uo small portion of the fashionable world, that tho
lady wai engaged at tho time of the announced marriage in Juno lost, to nn
Englishman, whom sho had met lnstsum-
mer at Narragunsett, and, in to Mr. Gill,
It was claimed by his friends that ho was
not a marrying man, nor at all inclined
to sentimental impulscsof suclilnteuslty.
Not moro than halt a dozen peoplo outside of tho Vandcrbllt and Gtryiine families knew that iho actual basis of tbo contract was a "mock marriage" supple-
minted by a brief und fanciful episode of
no more gravity. It waa thought, however, that whatever tlio IiukIs of tho accidental event, that tho sober judgment of
the Vandei-bllts might decide to recommend that tho civil contract be continued
by a church weddluc.
' Thii ooncluslen seems to havo been justified by tttk Mtlou as the Vnuderbilii
hav. takw atM. their return. Such n
termination, uowiver, of this nine days'
wonder wis nullified by tho nttttudo
taken by th. bridegroom-elect. He felt,
io his friends uy, that ho was, from clr-
euniitaiiMi beyond hit control, on trial
before th. Kctety world. He waa not a
free agent, anyway, nnd ahould he go forward ai Indicated, tlio misconstructions
that had beam placed upon his motives,
would be Indelibly confirmed. No material advantage possible would weigh ln
tbo balance, with a man of peculiarly sensitive temperninont, and bin decision was
anticipated by ull of bis intimates. This
conclusion was finally announced to tho
lady's family early in tho month, but a
serious accident to Mra. Viiuilorbtlt that
occurred at Newport,deferml any further
action until the present week. It appears,
now, that a couucll of well-known law*
yen hu taken place, that both Bidei announce that no ohurch ceremouy will on*
cur, and it only remnius for the legal ex-
amlnen to eomo to au agreement na to the
itstns of th. civil marriage of June lint.
Meantime, ai far oi it goei, th. coo.,
tract hu not been formerly annulled. The
momentous question remains yet to bo
settled; whether or not, should Edith
Gwynn.elect towed her devoted wn ot
Albion, who, alone holds* place in her
heart, ah. wonld chaHinge an action for
bigamy; or whither ornot, the over-chivalrous Fearing Gill'is free to follow his
Inclinations without a similar peril. An
eminent pillar of the law assures me,
that a divorce could be readily obtained
under the laws of Rhode Island, or an
annullment of the civil contraot without
a divorce In New York, bnt only upon
grounds which would not be ultimately
agreeable to the parties. Tb. hoped for
outcome ot the affair, ii now clearly defined. Eminent counsel hold that the par
tie. interested bad uo strioui "intent" of
being married; and even If they had,
' there wainocompletlon of tb. civil contract demanded by the law! of tho State,
and that, therefore, a duly appointed referee will hold that thi) marriage an*
. nounced, only under threat, aud unconfirmed by the after consent of either
. party, la not a legal marriage, even
civilly.
the comedy adjuncts of this much
talked ot epliodo have been numerous
and unique. For Instance, the ring used
at the "mock marriage," was an enormous "key-ring," attached to » bunch of
keyi. Neither Mr. Gill nor Mlsi Gwynne
remember what form of declaration they
used on either occasion; neither could
swear that any complete declaration was
made, but both would swear that no engagement existed between them previous
to th. burlesque marriage; and that
neither contemplated matrimony at tha
time. Th. whole affair seems ta be at
th. outlet simply « "high jinks." Perhapi, it th. newspaper! were to visit
ilmilor consequence! upon all "society
larki,'' New York society would be
tamer, even than It ii. The euitnined satire upon th. Sun kept np continuously
for eight weeks by Town Topics, li per-

Not less than thirty lite insurance
agents called during his first week in
town; he invariably referred them to the
city editors ot the sensational dailies that
had scarified him. A fiery blooded young
sprig o[ Western-chivalry—a devoted
champion of fair play—called to proffer
his services to "run-a-muck" through
the newspaper offices, picking a quarrel
aud "doing up" the Sun and Star in tnio
"Arkansaw" style. This would not bo
funny, were it not actually true, bub itls,
aud Mr. Gill has lived in movtr.l dread
for weeks, lest another chapter bo added
to bis volume of annoyance, by being
summoned to go on the bond of this bellicose young warrior In an assault and
battery case. Ono darln-*? city journal
cappedtheclimax of inquisitorial enterprise by hiring a room upon the same
floor as Mr. Gill's Rpnrtments and detailing a detcctivo to spy and eavesdrop for a
wholowcek. During this entire period,
the cunning scribe secured only enough
material by his novel methods to warrant
tbe publication a few days since of tbo
phantom "divorce proceedings" so widely
circulated.
But his object was probably secured, in
that Mr. Grundy got a second chapter of
this delectable scandal by the means—well,
all's fair in war and journalism! A recent issue of a French society journal
coutalns a luridly wild account, filling
two columns, in wlileh, as usual, all
names Bavo thoso of the Vanderbilts aro
complacently misspelled. Mr. Gill, lb Is
stated, bas offered every possible concession to expedite a friendly settlement and
relievo Miss Gwynne from the annoyance
of auy further publicity In the matter.
Miss Gwynno Is, according to reliablo
accounts', now lying very serioutfly ill at
her villa at Nnrragan* ctt, the recent sensational publication of the alleged "divorce proceedings," having, no doubt,
proved the one straw too much for even
this lady's rem.irk;* He endurance of the

The Canadians' Eyes Are Opening ami
with This Ii a Growli-fr 'Feeling of
.'llssnt-ulitcUon.
Canadians do not imprest- tho visitor as
being a happy people. There is a vast
amount, of annoyance in their government and they have to come to & point
where they aro resenting it with great activity ns far as talk is concerned. The
Dominion with nn area slightly exceeding that of the United States, has* less
than five million population, while wo go
by them thirteen times over without nu
effort; nnd aro growing while Canada Is
running down. What causes tbo most
discussion, however, after the retaliation
bill, In tho Dominion, Is tho fact that tho
footsteps of tho peoplo of Canada nre
steadily turned towards the United
Suites. Thn-o loyal aud enthusiastic
minister., of tha Crown in tho government of Maul toba who were recently released from oflice, picked up all their
goods and chattels and emigrated to the
States, and have since been peppering tlio
Canadian press with letters urging their
countrymen to do likewise. Tho British
em! .'rants In starting out from England
are going to America instead of Canada,
and with a decreasing population, tbo
taxation continues to grow in tbo Queen's
pviitMtt colony. From tho rising of tho
sun till it sets, tbe Canadian Is taxed and
robbed by the customs, and, he is beginning to think out political problems for
himself. Everything he bnys Is much
higher than It need be, and the action of
tho States has narrowed his market so
considerably, thnt Erastus Wiman's Idea
of commercial union is taking root and
tbogeneral f-- [_\$forannexutiouisgreat
in every dlftctiou. Under the lash of the
Tory whip tho papers are making great
ado about Canada's loyalty to England,
but most of it seems to be moonshine. I
have talked siuce I begun this tour
in Canada, with the most iirnminent
men in politics, with the cabinet ministers, with (ho railroad presidents,
great manufacturers, nnd tho virtual
leaders of public t'tmtlmeitt. Canadians
nro exceedingly shy when talking for
publication. Thin is partly because a tremendous shout of treason is rnlsed as
soon us a Kanuck speaks ill of Great
Britain nud partly because it bears upon
business, but in private conversation the
Canadians nre not loath to admit that
they are rather weary of bavins; England
pose as their protector and mother, without giving them any substantial proofs of
her regard.
The conflict ot .sentiment which one
everywiiere meets Is confusing. The people pretend to loyalty to Great Britain Iu
some lnstiiiices, and tu reality their nffee-
tions arc centered on Canada itself. It
seems rather odd to an American thnt the
Canadians should grow fond of n country
which Is theiro only by tolerance. Every
citizen of the United States knows that
he has a mat big interest in his country,
the lowliest of Frenchmen feels thnt a
good share of tho burden of government
rests on his shoulders, Hie German Is
willing to run any risk for the sake of bis
mighty Kaiser and the Englishman is
forever happy in contemplating the glory
of tho British empire. It is difficult to
seo what the Canadian has to thank England for. No sooner dovs the Dominion
get in a littlo squahblowltb n friendly
power like the United Statin than she is
suddenly corked up. body, soul and1 boots,
by an absolute order from the mother
country to observe absolute silence. No
matterwhat the tension of fcellnglaor
how anxious and worried the Canadians
mny be. they nre shut up like a lot of
school children and told to wait for their
instructions from that majestic nnd omnipotent diplomatic genius, Lord Salisbury. The Dominion has all tho misery
and none of tho fun of what Is sometimes known as diplomatic statesmanship, i blakklv Hall

A Wall Street Mun-s Advice To Folks
*    Who Think of Speculating.
Speculation Is a business that must be
studied as a specialty, uud though It is
popularly believed that any man who has
money can speculate, yet the ordinary
mah.without speoial training in the business, Is liable to mnke ns great*-*,' mistake
in this attempt ub tlie man who thinks he
can act as his own lawyer, and who is said
"to have a fool for a client."
Tho common delusion that expert
knowledge is not required in speculation
bas wrecked many fortunes and reputations in Wall street, and Is still1 very
influential lu Its pernicious and illusory
achievement-!.
Professional advice In Wall n( reet.n.i tn
legal affairs, is worth paying for, ami
costs far less in tho end than the chief
"points" that nre distributed profmrly
around the Street.thick as autumn leaves
In Vnllambrosa, and which only allure
the innocent speculator to put his money
where he is almost certain to lose it.
Myndvico to speculator*, who wish to
make money In Wall street, therefore, is
to Ignore the counsel of the barroom
"tippers" and "tipplers," turn their I neks
on "bucket shops," and when they wnnt
"points" to purchase, let them go to
those who know.—Houry Clews.

Loan Bylaw Defeated.
Yesterdsy wns voting day at the
Delta, to decide if the property holders of that municipality wished to
spend $8,000 on tho improvement of
tho roads already gazetted, and for the
purpose of opening up new highways.
The bylaw was badly beaten, only 23
votes boing recorded for it, while 63
woro giyon in the negative. It appears
from this that tho bylaw waa not popular and the vote seems to bear out the
expressions of our correspondents at
Ladners who appeared to think the
loan favored a few and was unfair to
the large proportion of tho population
of the Delta.

A Peculiar Occurrence.
Last evening a man walked aboard
the atr. Rainbow and posted himself
on the hurricane deck, leaning against
the cabin. Suddenly his foet flew
from under him and a second later he
shot between tho rails and dropped
into the water. A life preserver was
thrown to the man, who made no attempt to take hold of it, but lay contentedly in the water. Seeing the
man would bo drowned Capt. Gavin
hauled him on dock with a boat hook.
After giving himself a ahakc this
atrango personage quietly walked
ashore without saying "thank you" or
"good-bye."
Alderman Nightingale let off another
"blaafc" at Nicol Rock yesterday after-
noun. The ahock waa clearly felt
throughout the city. The uao of dynamite ia steadily removing this obstruction to the navigation of this harbor in
the immediate vicinity nf the loading
wharves of the Vancouver Coal Company. About four hundred pounds of
powder waa distributed in twenty-seven
holes, and the blast was one of the
largest yet fired, but owing to the high
tide the shuck was not so aeverely folt
aa it would have been had the tide
been lower, Thia ia the deepest blast
yet mado on the rock.—Nanaimo Free

A Mysterious Drowning.
Oa Wedneaday tho 7 year old son of
a farmer named Haggman, of Lulu
Island, (formerly a milkman' of Weatmlnater), waa drowned in a most mya-
terioua manner. Mr, Haggman and
some laborers woro working on the
bank of the river and an axe being required the little chap waa sent to get
it. The boy not returning in a reasonable time somewhat aurpriaed the father
who made immediate search for him,
but without avail aa no sign or trace
could be found. Tho conclusion is the
boy fell into the water and sank without uttering a cry. Mr, Haggman was
in the eity last night getting grappling
irons for the purpose of dragging for
the body of hia son.

The latest Freak.
There are many curious men in the
world who aro always doing strange
things and whose actions very often
throws a doubt on their sanity, West-
minster can boast—or deplore--the
presence of a man wbo is addicted to
one of the strangest freaks ever hoard
of. This man works on Gilloy's pile-
driver and has a mania for gotting
drunk on overy possible occasion, which
is generally every night. When sufficiently primed he stuggera down to
the wharf, and, not being able to trust
himself to walk the plank, cries "Man
over board I" and throws himself into
the water. Tho crew are up in an instant and the eccentric man is hauled
aboard, considerably sobered by the
cold bath. This is far from being a
a rare occurrence, but, ou the contrary,
happens quite frequently. Some night
the erew will happen to be all ashore,
and then a coroner's jury will brine in
a verdict to the effect that "thu dft-
ccasod came to his death while practicing an eccentric habit superinduced
by over-drinking and mental anxiety."

take a lively interest iu tho work of

Eight You Are, Bro. Kennedy.
Our esteemed cotemporary, the Columbian considers that a fish and game
protection club is something that is
greatly needed on the mainland, both
for the protection of the game that
abounds in the district and fur the introduction of species, such as quail and
pheasants, that have been bo successfully introduced on Vancouver Island.
A year ago a brace of quail was let
loose on the delta and now there are
several broods, but there Ib not known
to bo a single pheasant ou the mainland. Tho farmers of tlm delta, by
mutual consent, decided not to kill any
quail until they become quite numerous, and so far it is believed not one
bird has been destroyed. Fifty brace
of pheasants scattered ovor the district would grow to aeveral thousand
brace in three years and would furnish
aplendid sport*— Vancouver World,
Three or four times in tho last few
months, editorially and otherwise, we
have called attention to this important
matter, and we are glad to have our
salt water friend, Bro. MoLugan, reprint and*approve our sentiments, as

four now caaos have developod, making bix cases in all. On Wednesday,
beforo the quarantine oflicer arrived, a

left tho infected locrlity saying that
they wero going to Port Moody, Information was immediately conveyed
to tho authorities at Vunctmver and
Port Moody, and if tho parlies are discovered thoy will be escorted back to
the Squatnish and kept thero until tho
quarantine is raised. It is to be hoped
that they will be captured as there ia
no telling how far tho disease may
spread if they are allowed to roam at
large. Strict quarantine, js, now established and there is not much likelihood of future escapes. Nu deaths
have occurred up to date and the
disease seems to be of a mild form.

The annexed press noticea of Mr.
Georgo Woodford, who lectures in
Westminster some day next week, will
give an idea of the work he is capable
of doing.
"The largest and most enthusiastic
temperance meeting that Woodland
ever witnessed was held laat night at
the Opera House. It had been announced as Mr, Woodford's last lecture, and the house was thoroughly
packed. Aftor the lecture the house
proceeded to raise funds to carry on
the campaign through the county and
iu a little while reported about 81,700
amidst a deafening and continuous ap*

after listening to that plea, which played upon every chord uf the emotions

A formal announcement of the date
of Mr. Woodford's lecture will be
made in a few days.
Tlie past week has been a hard one
on steamers and steamboat men generally. During the storm on Tuesday a
scow belonging to Mr. B. Voting was
being towed across tho gulf from Cow*
iclmn but the soa got bo high that it
was iiecctBary to cut it loose nud
abandon it. Two scows belonging to
the Brnnette Saw Mills Co, wero
beached at Point Roberts, but wero
got off attain without sustaining serious
damage, A boom of logs belonging to
the same company, while being towed
from Mud Bay, waa broken up by the
heavy sea, and only a portion of tho
boom has been recovered.
Tho str. Clara Port on Tuesday
evening ran aground on Pitt Lake but
did not Buffer serious damage. She
was proceeding round a point at full
speed, when, without a moment's
warning, ahe ran on a sand bar and
keeled over. Tho accident was to sudden and unexpected that the engineer
wus thrown overboard and the captain
and pilot wero only saved from a similar mishap by the walls of the pilot
house. Tho engineer was aboard again
in a few minutes and with his bare
hands pulled the fire from the furnace,
whioh saved the boiler from being destroyed. The brave fellow's hands
were severely burnod but ho never
winced or complained although forced
to spend the night on the deck of a
scow and a heavy rain storm heating
down during that time. With the assistance of a scow and tho pile-driver
Hustler the Clara Port wai righted and
hauled off the bar. An examination of
heir bottom showed that the iteamer
had not sustained the slightest damage.
lovers Disappointed.
There appeared a young couple at the
auditor's office yesterday to secure a
marriage license. The young man was
evidently bo much in love that he forgot the laws of his country. Aro you
21 years of age ? demanded the official.
No sir, replied the youth, little deeming that he would be disappointed in
his early marriage. The promised
brido appeared as innocent as her
lover, and when aBked for her age she
did not hesitate to say that ahe was 10,
She waa accompanied by her father,
whose consent waa readily given, but
the youthful lover waa in a terrible
predicament aa he pondered over the
situation. His parents were in British
Columbia. The loving pair eyed each
other with an air of disappointment,
and the young lady waa probably,
thinking how little justice there was
in law, and both persisted and the
father of thia young lady explained
clearly how much needleaa delay would
be mado, how much time lost, how tho
beat portion of their Uvea would bo
brokon into needlessly, but the officer
explained: "I think you will both
think as much of each other if you
wait till you aie older. I cannot grant
the license. The law shall bo fulfilled."
With sorrow depicted on their countenances they loft the' oflice. It is
whispeied that an endeavor will be
made by the young man to obtain the
written consent of his parents.—Seattle Press.   Who are they ?
