SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
The sounds of tlie liourt lmve
been recorded and reproduced by
the phonograph.
i A i'Ventili subterranean river has
been explored for a mile or more by
M. Murtel, who derives from his
investigations a theory of the origin
cf canons.
"Prof. Ayrton estimates that the
power wasted at Niagara Falls exceeds that which could be produced
by the annual consumption of 150,-
000,000 tons of coal.
Tho microscope often reveals
impurities in diamonds, -particles of
organic matter and bubbles of gas
being common Quarts chrolite,
pyrite, hematite and topaz nave
also been seen.
The oldest rose-bush with an
authenticated record, is probably
that upon the old church at Helder-
sheim, Germany. It has grown to
the thickness of a man's body, and
the old writings state that a trellis
was built for it 800 years ago.
M. Spring, tho French physicist,
finds that the preservation of rails
in use is not the result of vibratory
motion, or of an eleotrio action produced by the passage of the trains,
but is due to the formation of a
coating of magnetic oxide by the
compression of the rust on the metal.
Hydrogen is shown by experiments of Dr. B. W. Richardson to
be neither anaesthetic nor hypnotic,
but if inhaled so as to be taken up
by the blood it quickly kills warmblooded animals, but suspends life
in cold-blooded animals for a long
time before actually destroying  it.
ErJiOTnio Coxdessatios op
Steam.—A variation of Dr. O. J.
Lodge's experiments on the electric
deposition of dust has been tried by
M. Sorefc, of Geneva. Steam submitted to eleotrio discharges was
instmitly precipitated • und when
the pole of the electric machine
wns sulliciently near the surface of
the water—the other pole lieing
attacln-d to the platinum cup used
for the boiling—tho steam was condensed us rapidly as formed, presenting the nnoraaly of steamless boiling water.
Leveuso Effect of Fiiost.—
A low ledge in western Norway
marks the spot on which nn extensive promontory stood until 1717.
During a thaw in that* year, the
eroviees in the rock were filled with
water, which was quickly frozen by
a sudden change to cold. The result was the rending of the rook,
and its projection, with its cultivated fields and farmstead, from a
height of 1500 feet into the neighboring fjord. The fall raised a
great wave, which not only destroyed tho fishing boats within two
and a half miles but swept away a
church fifty feet above the water a
mile away  from  the   promontory,
Geolocicat. Associations.—The
Geological Society of London wus
established in 1807, and now has
about-1450 members. The Geological Society of Dublin came into
existence in 1832: that of Edinburgh 18,'U ; of France, in 1830;
of Germany, in 1848. The first
International Geological Congress
met at Paris iu 1878, aud decided
to assemble regularly overy third
year in different cities of the world.
The geological section of the American Association for the advancement
of Science was formed in 1849, and
the organization of the American
Geological Society will date from
tho meeting at Ithaca, N. Y., on
Dec. 27, 1888.
WoBLD-ExaLnn.—The great advantage claimed by Dr. A. Melville
Bell for English as the universal
language, is the simplicity of its
grammar, which makes English im
measurably superior to overy form
of artificial language as well as to
other national tongues. The various
moods and tenses, declensions and
conjugations, which burden other
grammars have practically no existence for us. Dr. Bell advocates
further simplification, however, by
removing grammatical irregularities
—using "chillis" instead of "children," "gooder" instead of "better,"
oto.,—adopting a more orderly spoiling, and improving tho alphabet so
as to give a letter for each sound.
MoviNc, Towns.—The common
method of showing the slow changes
of level of the land is by recording
at intervals the height of marks on
sea-coasts as compared with the surface line of tho ocean. A . more
striking exhibition of the instability of the eternal hills has been observed in the Jura mountains, where
Hinges that were inyisible to each
other nt the beginning of tho con-
tury, or oven thirty or forty years
ago, have come into view through
the movement of the ground. The
roofs appeared first, then the upper
part of the walls, as in the villages
of Doucier and Marigny, near Iiike
Ohalain. Even within ten or fifteen years important changes have
been noted.

adviser of the king of Corea, who ia in

truth in the report that a Russian
protectorate over Corea has been arranged.
The European residents in the interior uf Java are arming themselves
owiug to fanatical disturbances.
The natives do not shrink from massacre and cause much uneuineu.
The Japanese papers are tilled with
rumors about Corea. One -says the
king hu received an authograph letter
from the Czar who is disposed tu lend
him assistance in throwing off the
suzerainty of China, aud thtt Corea is
trying to purchase a man-of-war from
Russia, tho payment for which will
be spread over four or tive years,
The American and German ministers in Pekin are reported lo have
submitted a propusnl to the Chinese
government that the necessary rep.tin
tothe great broach in the Yellow
River would be gratiuously undertaken
on tho condition tbat on completion of
the repairs a concession for. tbo construction of railways in China would
be granted.
THE  OLD STORY.
. St. Paul, Minn.. Jan. 5.--For the
third time iu its history the Second
National Bank is the victim of a de*
faulting employee. Paying Teller
0. U. Wright hu absconded. The
bank officials refuse to give tho amount
taken but it ia supposed to go into
thousands.' Wrights craukedneu lias
been known to the bank officials fur 2
weeks but was concealed iu hope of
settlement by Wright's relations.
Wright was in tho highest social
circles in the oity and a general favor*
ite. Wine, cards and women led to
his downfall.

ALL A no AX.
Cm- of Mexico, Jan. t.—Tho false
report, originating in Chilmuhuii, of a
clerical imprisoning iti this city, caused
great excitement hero. Many merchants iLiid bankora in oilier places

It is believed tho hon*. wna the work

SEAL FISHERIES OIHrUTBS.
Washinoton, Jan. 2.—Senator
Hoar to-day introduced a resolution
which was adopted, asking tbo prpsi-
dent t-j transmitjo congress any correspondence he had with Great Britain concerning the seal fisheries, Behring Straits especially, no the seizure
of any vessel of tho United Stntes or
any other country, and what resolu*
ti-Mis govorning the fisheries had been
aftopted by this government. Hoar
says there have been and are still widespread complaints of unjust discrimination mado against American vessels.
That while they are not permitted to
to take seals out of the sea, which is
perfectly proper nnd right, no interference is made with tbe operations of
vessels of other countries^ particularly
those of Great Britain, and ho wants
to know why?

Natche:;, one of tho iiucst passenger

Swindle in Years.

TUB LATEST BUBBLE BURST.
, London, Jan. 5.—Excitement con-
tho j tinuu here und in Liverpool on tho
great electric sugar swindle. Shares
are nuw down to 30s, Holders have
been running fiunctically around for
the last threo days trying to get rid of
them. Howard, promoter of the enterprise, hu been living, at the Adelphi
hotel in giimd style. Warrant* have
been issued for his arrest, and also for
Mrs. Friend, who suld her interest in
the discovery for £15,000. There was
a craze for these shares, both people
being most plausible in urging their
pretensions and impressing speculators
with the importance of the scheme.
Money was simply thrown at them.
Most of the shares are held in Liver*
fiool. The collapse of this bubble has
tad a depressing effect on many recently introduced American schemes,
some uf which are good and substantial.
The weak ones are going to the wall
and more failures will be heard of
soon. AH kinds of stories are floating
to*day about the losses sustained in the
electric sugar stock by well-known New
Yorkers, but iho only person whose
name could bo obtained as a positive
loser was Lawson N. Fullor. The
fact is nearly all the stock actually sold
was disposed of in Liverpool and
Birmingham. Here is a statement of
the actual outstanding stock: The
capital stock being 10,000 shares on
Oct. 1st, 1888. Held by American
stockholders, 7,207 shares; held by
foreign stockholders, 2,793 shares. Of
the 7,207 shares held here 5,250 shares
belong to Mrs. Friend, tbe boss
Bwindler, und 1,160 shares to W. H.
Ootterill, president of the company.
The foreign stock is divided
among 526 shareholders. Every
sugar refiner iu Liverpool is
said to have some of the stook,
as bave also many of the leading bankets and merchants. A telegram was
fead frum President Ootterill.f rom Ann
Arbor, Michigan, announcing bis ar-
i i val and that he had engaged one of
ihe loading legal Brum in the state for
tho company's interest. He added he
expected to leave to have Mrs. Freund
Mr. Howard, Mrs. Hownrd, the
former's mother and step-father, and
Gus and George Hals toad under arrest
before night, upon charges of swindling and obtaining money under false
pretenses. The company has received
altogether in round figures $350,000
for sharcs.which hns all boon expended

The new fishery regulations for
this province, authorized by Order-
in-council at Ottawa, on tho 26th of
November last, and which have already been noticed several times in
this paper, are arousing, as we havo
before intimated, tho determined opposition of the canners and fishermen, It is maintained that tho
regulations are so vexatiously inapplicable to the fisheries of the Fraser
that they will nob be respected in
many points, and cannot be enforced. With respect to the clause
providing that the minimum size of
mesh shall be six inches, the fisher-
state that, after an experience of
fifteen or sixteen years, thoy find
that a uniform mesh of 5 <- inches is
the best adapted for the capture of
the suckeye fish. When wet, the
size of mesh mentioned reduces to
5 J inches. A quarter of an inch j
does not seem a great affair, yot, it
is maintained, that in a run of fish
of so uniform a sizo as the suckeyo,
small as it is, it would mean the
difference between success and a disastrous failure in the fishing industry so far as tho suckeye run is concerned. Instead of the section providing that only one-third of the
river should be fished, it has been
suggested that the inspector of
fisheries should define the length of
the nets to be used—on the Fraser
River, especially, as the diversity
in width is so great that a conviction under this head could never be
secured by the fishery oflicer, whereas, if tho guardian had only to measure the length of the net, the matter would be quito simple. The
most damaging provision of all, tho
canners assort, is that contained in
clause (c) of section 3, making ' a
close time overy week of 48 hours—
from G a.m. Saturday to 6 a.m. Monday. This, it is stated, will close
the canneries from noon on Saturday till Tuesday morning, as the
baits- do not return to the canneries
for 12 hours. Thus the fishermen
can only work 5 days in the weok
and the cannery hands 4 \ dnys,uiak-
ing it hard to keep men at all, and
creating a fruitful source of trouble
und expense. A3 we havo stated
before, wc believe that G hours
added to the close time of the old
regulations—making 36 hours in all
—would be sufficient for the purposes of protection, and would not
bear too heavily upon tho fishing
interests, as the -18 hours close time
is sure to do. Tho recommendations
of tho canners, with respect to enlarging the mesh in tho latter half
of August and the first half of
September, and also with respect to
an annual close season from the 20th
of October till the 1st of February,
constitute additional and valuable
protection, whioh the authorities
would do well to consider and adopt.
It would bo advisable and proper
for the fishery authorities to model
their regulations at all points on the
recommendations of the canners, as
those are the careful conclusions of
men of long and varied experience
in the salmon fishing, who have their
capital invested in canneries and
fishing gear, and who would be the
greatest losers from a failure in the
salmon fishing. It has been sufficiently shown that the new fishery
regulations are notoriously inapplicable and vexatious to this provinco,
nnd the Fraser River especially, and
it is honed that no timo will be lost
in modifying them to suit, before
another fishing season sots in. As
already stated, the present regulations will not bo respected; the fishermen can woll afford to break them,
and pay all the fines into the bargain, which would be a trifles compared to the advantages gained by
. infractions of tbe rules. As there
are on this river from G5 to 70 miles
of fishing grounds, it will be seen
that an army of fishery guardians
cannot prevent tho fishermen from
breaking the law, if it is unjust, and
they are determined to do so—especially when a great deal of the fishing is done at night.
From a late number of Harper's
Weekly we get the  following full
particulars of the lituation  in  tho
state-prisons of New York, referred
to briefly the other day in this paper,
as bearing on tho subject of convict
labor.   These particulars are worthy
of careful consideration,   Harper's
Weekly rays, editorially:   There are
about thirty-five hundred  convicts
in  tho  full vigor of manhood, supported in complete idleness at an
annual expense of about four hundred thousand dollars to the people
of the itate.   The necessary  work
for the care of a prison itself can be
done by a very few  men.   Thirty
oat of the sixteen hundred at Sing
Sing would do the work of the
priwn.   What is the result of this
lituation t   It is an enonnoui cost
for the itate, and an  immenso  in-
create of luffering, insanity, crime,
and wretchedness.   It is a situation
without a single excuse or alleviation, and it is both a disgrace and
danger to  the community.   Itii
due, of coune, to the deference of
the legislature to what is called "the
labor vote;" that is to wy, the legfo- j
lsture believes that the great mass
of those who livo by daily wages in
this stato prefer that tho prisons
shall become festering masses of disease, idiocy, and every form of
physical and moral decay rather
than that the  thirty-five  hundred
Erisoners shall be' put at honest
ibor. This is the error of demagogues, not the conclusion of sensible men. It is the result of assuming the most contemptuous view of
the intelligence and humanity of tho
body of the people as the correct
view. It commits a crime against
the state and against humanity itself in order to catch a vote. Tlie
support by any public man or by
any party of a plan which reduces
the state-prisons to a condition which
is now threatened ought to be u conclusive reason with overy honest
voter "for inflexibly opposing tho
man or the party. Tho whole number of convicts, includiug those in
tho jails, is probably ten thousand
in tho state. Tho Yates bill, against
whose passage tho most enlightened
sentiment of tbo stato protested, but
which was passed at the extra aesslon, restricts convict labor to tlio
manufacture of supplies for publio
use, building and repairing prisons,
and reclaiming swamp lands, and
agriculture Tho bill is founded
upon no consistent principle. It
abolishes the use of motive power
and prohibits the manufacture of
any article for salo. The question
of prison policy is ono of the most
important of state questions. But
this bill was " rushed through " in
an extra session of a day or two, in
the height of a presidential campaign, the politician in the executive chamber and the politicians in
the legislature trying to outwit each
othor, and naturally the interests of
the state wero sacrificed. The New
York state-prisons aro now practically idle There has beon an enormous loss of "plant," and a very
much worse loss is threatened. There
ure certain fundamental considerations in regard to the subject which
no party exigency nnd no dema-
goguery can possibly alter. One is
that the convicts must be employed,
unless tho state is to suffer in every
way by making the prisons, at an
enormous expense, nurseries of imbecility and crime. Another is tbat
they cannot be properly employed
without competing in some degree
with labor out of prison. Tbo present Now York scheme is a desperate endeavor to disregard both of
these facts. It is unworthy of h
civilized community, and if tbe
prison association would undertake.
the circulation of petitions upon the
subjoct, there would bo a representation of public opinion to tho legislature so imposing that it could not be
disregarded.

A DETECTIVE'S STORY.
Why Bo Ib Not on the Force
Any More.
Two men sat together In tho rear seat of
a smoking cor on ono of our railroads and
chatted familiarly of the upa and downs of
a minor's life, tho topic being suggested by
a landscape dotted with coal-breakers and
furrowed with coal roods,
Tho freedom and interest of tbelr conversation did not scorn to be dampened by the
fact that the younger of tbe two carried a
revoWer( whilo hia companion wore a pair
of those nnco vetml articles of jewelry which
aro known in criminal circles as "braoo-
lots."
Tho fow persons who had observed them
lop. nied from tho coiilldcntialbrakeman that
thoy were a noted detective and his prisoner on the way to trial. As far as ages
wont tho pair might have been taken for
futhor and son, the fine gray bead of the
one contrasting strongly with the crisp
brown curls of his captor.
What crime hnd been committed the
brakeman did not know, but hazarded a
conjecture that it "must have been a pretty
bad one, or George Jluuson wouldn't have
took tho trouble to put them things on his
wrists,"
Presently the brnkemon and tho conductor satisfied the joint demands of etiquette
and curiosity by stopping to exchange a fow
wonls with the detectivo; tho former then
perched himself upon the coal-box directly
behind the prisoner, and the latter dropped
magnificently into tho seat iu front The
train waa sweeping aroundacurvo and past
u ruined trestlo on tho hillside at which'
both of the passengers looked with some interest
"I remember that place," sold the oldet
man.
"Bo do I," responded the youngor; "I was
born thore. Camo near boing buried thoro,
too," he resumed after a moment's pause.
"How was that!"
"It's a pretty long story," said* tho detective, "but I guess we'll havo timo for it
between this and tlie noxt station. Way
up thore on tho slope Is tho littlo settlement
whore I made my debut, so to speak;
from it to the) bottom of the hill thero used
to bo a gravity road—a long, winding track
reaching from tho settlement down to tho
top of a bank wall of earth whero a slido
occurred tho year X wns born. On both
sides of the track grow saplings that had
sprung up -since tho disaster (what I am
telling you occurred five yean later), and
thoy crowded tho rood and hung ovor the
old rusty rails on which tho coal can used
to' run. You must remember that the
houses wen built near the mouth of the pit
—that wu one of the first mines worked In
this country, and ono of the first to bo
abandoned. Time I am telling about, aome
men were walking up track, and a' lot of
children playing near the top, climbing in
and eut of au old car which had lain there
sinco it made its last trip with the broken
sprnggs still in its wheols.
"The meh were minors, all but one of
them, who questioned his companions about
tholr work and tho country they lived in.
He was evidently a stranger.
"Presently, as they talked, a shout from
the top of the slope attracted their attention, and they looked up just in time to see
tho car begin to move slowly down the
grade.
'•There wu on impatient exclamation
from the oldest man ln the party. Them
brats la always up to some mischief,' he
said. They have started that old thing oft
at last; I've been cxpeotln-to see it go at
any time this five year. They'll be breaking their necks yot with their torn-fooling.'
And another of tho group added: 'Wo
must dust out of this lively, unless we
' want to get our nooks broke; she'll olther
jump tho rail or go to pieces at the bottom ; lucky there ain't no ono aboard of
her.'
"Tho stranger was looking anxiously up
at tho approaching runaway. His quick eye
had caught eight of something round and
golden above tho car rim.
"•There's a child in that car,' he said,
quietly,
"It was ft aocond or two boforo his companions realized the awful moaning of tbat
statement A child! That was as If ho
had said, thtt In a few moments somo one—
perhaps one of themsclves-wouM be
childless;
"With one impulse they turned to look at
tho broken rails at the edge of the fault.
Shuddering, they fixed tholr eyos again on
tho approaching mass, then hopelessly at
each other. They could not dream of stopping the progress of tho car. But quick as
thought almost the stranger took hold of a
sapling and bent it down till it nearly
touched the track. 'Hold on,' he said to ono
of the men, 'It will help to check her.' A
rod further down another and then a third
and fourth were hold in thoi same
way. Bo four of the party waited for a fow
breathless seconds, while tho two remaining ones hurried furthor down; but one
more effort and tho car was upon them.
The flnt obstacle was whipped out of tbe
hands of the strong man who hold it and
the car rushed on to tho second with hardly
lessoned force. Again tbo barrier was
brushed asido, but tliis timo tho speod of
the old wreck was perceptibly less. By the
timo the fifth obstruction was reached the
newcomer waa able to clamber aboard and
throw the child into the urns of • his companion, but beforo he hod time to save himself the old truck had rogalnod something
of its momentum and was plunging on toward the precipice.
"Well, the man jumped just as thoy
reached the edge, juat before his vohldo
shot ovor into tho air, but ho had vory little
timo to chooso bis ground, and so landed, as
luck would havo it, oo tho only heap of
stones In sight The others ploked him up
for dead end oarried htm up to tho settlement, where the miners held a regular
wake ovor him.  But he came to lifo hi the
middle of the festiv— tho obsequies, I main
and fouud that he was only cripplod for
lifo.
'The miners—folks not easily moved,
-were enthusiastic about the affair, and
gave such testimonials as they cpuld to
show their gratitude, and appreciation.
Ono of these expressions took -the form of
a souvenir, signed by every man in tho
placo, and stating in very grandiloquent
language what the poor fellow hod dono.
His quick wit seemed to them more wonderful than his courage and devotion, in a
community whore neither quality ia unusual at all.
The man who takes bis own lifo in his
hand every day, and lias frequently to fight
for the life of somo companion values a
'brainy'action. In the box with tho testimonial was a purse of fifty dollars aud a
curious old gold cross, that had beon treasured by the brother of the lad who was
saved as his ono piece of flnory. On it was
rudely ongraved theso words:
'Given by the miners at the Notch to tho
man who risked his lifo for a child.'
That was all. The poor follow wont
away and would havo been forgotten, only
that tho old miners told the story sometimes
to their children."
The prisoner was looking out of tho window. The conductor rustled around ns
though ashamed of the interest ho hiul
shown in tho story—a story which ho did
no doubt was pure fiction. Only tho brake-
man gave way to bis sympathy, and asked
whethor tho man bad over been found.
" Not that I know of," replied the detective,
" And wu you the boy what he saved!"
"I was tho kid."
"And you nover hcor'd toll what became
of the man- what would you do if you shu'd
come aerost him aome timo!"- Evident!y
the brakeman had an imagination wUMi
was trying to assert itself.
" Oh I I'd try to even tho thing up some-
now. I suppose common decency would demand that. I'd treat him ob well as I know-
how."
"Look here," said the prisoner, turning
from the window with an apparent effort
to change a conversation which for some
reason had net seemed to interest him—
"look hero, old man, I've got a little keepsake that your story just reminded mo of,
and if I could get at it I'd ask yon to take
charge of it for me till—till this thlmr is
over. If you'll put your hand in thore and
pull out that bit of ribbon; so-"
The conductor almost jumped out of
his seat "Blamed if it ain't tho cross
that you've just been telling about," he
shouted.
A month later tho detective wat undergoing a cross-examination by tho conductor
and brakeman.
Tea, ho was a bad lot Ob, yes, he
didn't have a leg to stand upon. Tho facts
were all aa clear as day. AU true about
the orosB and the rest of itt Just as truo
u gospel. What had he been doing!

THE  MOTHER-IN-LAW.
An Earnest Plea  In llehalf of a  Much-
Abused Class of Women,
Perhaps to-day there is no relation in life
in whioh a woman ia so persistently abused
and misunderstood as in that to hor daughter's husband, says tho New York Prut. It
has been made tho thoino of the jest book,
the circus clown, and the topical songster
od nauseam. In tho vulgar and witless
warning against matrimony, sung by
Nadjy, it Is encouraging to note tlmt the till
at "mother-in-law" extract-* only tVi-ibiily
smile from tho audienco. No doubt £li{u I.
duo to tho stalouoss of tho subject, quito un
much as Its falso sentiment, but kit us hopo
it marks a revulsion in public tusto, notwithstanding that fair bride, Amulic Hives,
who makes Herod say:
Metbinks that Satan was a married man,
and hlB wife's mothor ogged him to rebel, soo*
Ing Heaven would not hold them both.
People aro beginning to- find out that
when a man vilifies his mother-in-law it in
generally safe to assume that ho ill-trents
his wifo. A young girl, when sho marries,
takes it for granted that hor husband's
lovo and devotion wilt continue to bo hors
u much as the sunshine and the air. The
mothor, from her wider observation and
perhaps bitter experience, is full of vague
fears and alarm. Whon hor daughter stood
at the altar Bhe trembled. Sho was liming
not only her child, but her power of insuring that child's happiness. Hor -uuturmd
eye, keen as eagle's, seeks to pierce the
future; but no, she must fold ber oroodi!itj
wingB and wait with beating heart to lQi.ru
if this marriage meant the highest tanppi*
ness or the greatest misery that comen to
woman.
In the former cue the mother joyously
feels sho hu not boen robbodof a daughter,
but beon given a son. Hor heart turns in
gratitude uud lovo to the man in whoso
huuds hor daughter's lot is secure; indeed,
it Is doubtful if she fools moro 'tenderness
for her own sou. AS to tho young huabim.l,
ho regards with reverence and illiul ixit-v-
tion tho mother of tho woman he udorus,
and who hu mado her what she is.
Ontho other hand,what intolerable nu*
gulsh comes to tlmt mother who, condemned
to see tho child she has so tenderly roared,
so carefully sheltered from every rou'-t'i
wind and word, now the victim, or tho servant, of a man whose "lovo" expired wiiti
possession, or whose cruelty or neglect is
sapping the life of the youug wifo. If the
mothor interposes to reason, remonstrate,
or save hor daughter, the floodguu-s of
abuse are opened, and in that portion ur society in which the master of ceronioni'-Mit
tho polico justice ho accepts the excuse i>*"
' mother-in-law," whon ho should ask:
" Why wu sho driven to interfere!"
Of course thero are weak, foolish and
even tyrannical women who would like to
rulo thctr sons-in-law u they do their husbands, with hysterics or rods of Iron, but
theso aro .the exceptions, not tho rule,
which should pormit a large class of women,
mothers in the first place, to becomo u i-.r-
get for ohoap wtt and an excuse for marital
brutality.     .

trip from Vancouver yesterday, was
exactly four hours and thirty minutes
from the terminal city wharf to the
outer wharf. The outer passage was
taken, off Discovery Island light, which
would make the total distance travelled
eighty miles, or eighteen miles por
hour. The gallant vessel cut her way
through the water in handsome style,
and in tho forward cabin and amidships the vibration wan scarcely noticeable. It is expected that sho will be
able to make thu aamo distance, when
pushed to hor utmost speed, within
tho four hours.—Colonist.

"Kerry •Bow."
There were no vacant places at the
Howard last evening. Manager Harris
had put out u bill that proved to be
magnetic, and every seat and available
inch of standing room whence a view
of the stage could be obtained was occupied. The attraction prosontod was
the ever-popular Irish drama entitled
"Kerry Gow." J. S. Murphy appeared in the charactor of Dan O'-
Hara, the Kerry Gow, and he was
warmly welcomed hack to the scene of
many formor triumphs. His wit and
humor was as rich as ever, and he
kept the audience in constant laughter by his funny Irish sayings. Miss Dilliati De tVoll appeared
as Nora Drew, the sweetheart of Dan
O'Haro, and she personated the role
in a manner satisfactory to her auditors and was persistonly encored. Tho
remainder of the performers played
their parts admirably. Tho -scenery
was all that could be desired by the
auditors. —itosfon Globe.

Teachers' Entertain turn t.
The entertainment given in tho Oddfellows' Hall lut evening in connection with tho New Westminster Teachers' Institute was a creditable success.
The hall was filled to its its *. tmost
seating cabacity with a very representative assemblage and the programme
wns well carried out. In the absence
of Mayor Dickinson, who was to pre*
side, Mr. M. Sinclair, one of tho school
trustees, took the chair. Tho entertainment was opened nt 8 o'clock with
an instrumental duct by Miss Rand
and Miss DeBeck who performed tho
task with their usual efficiency. A
recitation by by Mr. \V. M. Wood,
••Courtship/' given in tho Scottish
dialect, was well received. Tho Hov.
Mr. Baldwin gave a very able address
on "ThoTeachers'Position," A quartette, "Como Whero the Lillics Bloom"
by Mrs. Flandets, Misi Williams,
Mr. H. L. DeBeck and Mr. H. M.
Cunningham, was rendered with considerable taste and precision and received merited applause. Mr. W. T.
Kinney convulsed the audience with a
recitation, "The Smack in School" and
on being recalled gave "Tho Courtship
of Laurie" in his uiuat happy style.
An instrumental trio was then given
by Messrs. Holden, Yoomans and
Charters, which was much appreciated.
The Rev. Mr, Hadden gave an address
on "Parental Training and its Influence in tho School Room," giving*
many valuable hints to parents and
guardians respecting home discipline.
Tho Rev. Mr. White's address on
"School Life's Effects on Character" was instructive. His delineation of character as influenced by
school life was true to nature.
Miss Dickinson ontortained the audience with a charming instrumental
solo. Mr. John McKenzie then gavo
an address on "The Life of a Teacher."
Mr, McKenzie was well conversant
with his subject and spoke on it fluently and at considerable length, An
instrumental duet by Miss Margaret
Homer nnd Miss Millard was very
nicely performed nnd was well received. The singing of the National
Anthem by the whole assemblage
brought tho proceedings to a close.

Bpcclul lo I he Columbian.
Seattle, Jan. 4.-A riot took place
at .Newcastle mine to-day and William
Ruston, a miner, from Oilman, was
Bhot. The trouble arose over the employment of a miner named William
Doyle, a member of the Minors' Union,
The Knights of Labor quit work New
Years and endeavored lo f»rce tho
Union men to follow suit, Thoy refused, nnd eat-Jy this morning they
brought ovor several hundred Knights
from Gilniau to clean out the camp at
Newcastle. Tho Knights terribly beat
a lut of Union mon and during the
row Ruston, ono of tho riutnrs, was
shot. Sheriff Cochrane tuok a posse
from Seattle and took charge of tho
place. He h;is just telegraphed for 12
more men but it is not apprehended
that any other uprising has occurred.
Tho militia were held in readiness
during the day to visit tho scene in
case ot emergency. They stinted out
but were recalled.
Another and later account says:
Seattlk, Jan. 5.—Trouble which
haa been brewing at different mines
near Newcastle between members of
the Minors' Union and Knigh's of Labor culminated Yesterday morning in
a riut, resulting in the death of Wm.
Ruston, of Oilman, and serious injury
of n number of others. The initial attack was made on an agod miner named Robert Lowry, who was badly
beaten by Knights of Labor. A boy
named George Dobson was assaulted
by soveral men and severely injured.
Ho narrowly escaped being thrown
irom a high trestle by clutching to tho
dress nf hia mother, who was trying to
savo her boy, Telegraph lines woro
cut by tho mob and a railroad trestlo
destroyed. Upon receipt of the news

posse of fifteen men loft on a special
train for the sceno of tho trouble.
Shortly after Companies "A" nnd "D"
of the territorial militia were sent by
train. News received thia morning
shows everything quiet, the militia
having taken charge of the mines.
More trouble is anticipated when the
militia aro withdrawn. Thu trouble
was caunod by the refusal of tho

PUBLIC  OPINION.
Bourns te the Charge ou Ibe Convict
Labor Question. Decs not Unite Agree
wlih T ericas.
Very, very funny, Mr. Veritas ; hut
tho slur underlying your first paragraph is not bo funny as you think it
is. The positiuii of the mechanic is
us honorable as that of any profession,
but you would convey the idea that
tho convict might bo trained to work
and mix in society with the mechanic
but must not touch the saintly professions. You would mix him up
with tho working man and let his now
educated adaptability to crooked work
be exercised amongst them—casting
often clouds of suspicion on honest
men—but you would not let him join
the professions becauso his depredations amongst them would stain their
high and saintly calling. Now, if you
had taken the trouble to consider that
quite a largo percentage of criminals
committed to our penitentiaries in the
Dominion aro from the professions—
convicted tor embezzlement, forgery,
boodle-snatching, and procuring abortions—you would not hold the professions ao high that these convicts
should not touch them on gaining
their liberty. Public Opinion joins
issue upon your first paragraph, but in
ours of the 31at December wo ducus-fed
the principle of "convict labor," not
the "manufacture of criminals," nnd
if carefully and intelligently read, bore
the impress of a decided aversion to
their being put in competition with
mechanic or professions. Since Veritas
hns touched upon the cause of our
having criminals to deal with, Public
Opinion says emphatically that in-
temperance is tho main causo, but that
intemperance assumes mnny forms
other than you suggest. The intemperate desire to overreach the monetary standing of their neighbors causes
many to commit crime, The intemperance in dress cause mnny to steal
nnd others to sacrifice their virtue, in
the end committing tho grentost crime
of all—murder. The intemperance of
writing, as iu the caso of Griffin,
not to say anything about the intemperance of speech, which causes many
to bo committed for criminal libel.
Veritas, in writing, must have forgotten the quotation "bo temperate in
all things," or his reference to the
"devil's factory" and his "state ap-
painted agents" would have been
couched in other language. Tho fact
that our representatives in the legislature nre placed there by the majority,
and by their right enact laws, under
and by which our government officials
nre governed, nnd act in regulating tho
traffic which Ine large majority countenance and wish carried on, in some
way—to call theso officials agents of his
Satanic Majesty is veiy intemperate,
Mr. Veritas; but if you wish the existing law changed, so us to meet your
ideas, put them forth with n candidate to champion them at tho elections, nud romember that you and nil
alike should respect tho law of the
land in which we livo, nnd by sober,
temporato, constant endeavor, try to
improve and elevate it to a higher
standard.

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors of New Westminster City:
Lathes and Gentlemen,—
At the request of a number of friends I
have consented to place my name ln
nomination for the position of alderman
at the coming election, fully realizing the
Importance and duties of the office. If
elected I will endeavor to the best of my
ability, to place our city In tho front rank
of the cities of B.C. The following Important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. Railway,—I will use overy legitimate
means In my power to bring to n successful termination the building and completion of the Southern Railroad, and will
treat liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run into our city,
always carefully guarding the best Interests of the city. And It If, my opinion
If wo arc true to ourselves and bury any
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
Westminster the greatest railway center
and most important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Water Supply.—I am In favor of the
city owning its own watef works, for there
is u very largo revenue to bo derived from
this source, If properly conducted, and, If
elected, I will at once take up this question
and deal with it on business principles,
Water rate debentures whon Issued, bear
their own value and will not be one dol-
lai'.s tax on the ratepayers.
-*i. Sewerage.—This is ono of tbe most
Important questions that tho new council
will have to grapple with, and, as thore is
bound to be a largo emigration here this
year, it behooves us to be alive and get
our city well advanced so as to keep away
those dread diseases which wo ao mercifully escaped lost year. And I have no
doubt If you elect the right, men a scheme
can be got up whereby the city can be
properly sewered, and the revenuo derived
from the sale of water bo made to pay the
Interest and sinking fund for bolownter
works and sewerage.
4. Streets—Something must be done
ntnm-eto open up all streets in the city
so aa to glvo workingmen and mechanics
a chance to get to their lots and buildings,
uud, if elected. I will give this subject my
careful attention and hearty support.
JI, City Hall.—If any proposition Ib
brought forward for tho erection of a suitable city hall, nnd If tbe finances of the
city will allow It, I will give It my warmest support,
fl. Btreet Liomisn.-I will favor the
extending and Improving of our syBtem of
Btreet lighting, for there is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement,
7. Park.—In order to make the coming
agricultural show a success we must put a
portion of the city park Ina lit condition
with suitable buildings, etc If elected I
will do my best to make the grounds a
credit to the royal city. I am also In favor
of removing tho unsightly atumpa on
Albert Crescent and planting a few shade
trees to replace tho Htumps. Nature has
dono much for our city and It only wants
touching up a little to make It perfect,
& Public Library.—There Is no doubt
anew building Is wanted to replace the
delapidated one now occupying a valuable lot, and there Ib no doubt ln my mind,
but that a suitable one could be erected
with stores underneath and library above;
and the rents from said stores would more
than pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leave a balance for keeping the library in proper condition,
9. MAKUrACTURERB.~-I will encourage
any manufacturers that contemplate starting business in this city, treating them
in a liberal manner, and will use every
efforttoshow them tho Advantage of doing
business here. It Is well known that manufactures are the backbone of any city.
10. Communications.—I will urge upon
our representative tho necessity of the
Dominion government subsidizingaldnily
boat between here and Richmond and
also between here and Ladners Landing.
We must also get bettor connections with
tho surrounding district.
11. Letter Boxes.—Iwillalsoendoavor
to have the postal authorities supply and
put ln place letter boxes ln the suburhs
of Ihe city.
12.1 will also urge on our oity member
the necessity of having the local government place u sum of money In this year's
estimates to put the Nortii Arm road In a
fit condition for travel.
13. Street Naming, ano Numiierino.-
If elected I will urgo upon my colleagues the necessity of having our streets
properly named and buildings numbered,
as is always done In well-regulated cities.
In fact, any projoct that may bn brought
up for advancing the Interests of the city
will have my careful attention and hearty
support,
I remain,
