Quite likely. Decent folks have to

It was stated recently that the
firms of Anderson *fc Oa, and Green
it Co., of London, proprietors of the
Orient line, were about to renew
their offer to the Oanadian' government to carry the mails. They offer
to build three express steamers of
7,500 tons each, not less than 20
knots an hour, and make the pas
sage between Halifax and Plymouth
in five days. Modern applicances
are thus drawing tbe continents
very near together.

HENRY V. EDMONDS,
dnolto Land Agent.
Says the Empire: Senator In.
galls, of Kansas, st present acting
Vice-President ol the United Statei,
does not ignore the f aot that the
republic has at least one serious
problem to solve, "The race question at the South," he says, "remains as it has always been, and
for tho next generation will continue to be, the most important and
formidable in our politics. The
change from slavery to freedom has
complicated instead of simplifying
the situation." The tail-twisters
and shouters for annexation will
soon have to attend to home politics.
The late Emperor Frederick hsd
a habit in a foreign country of
noting down anything he saw which
struck him as being so good that ho
would like to introduce it in his
own land. On the day of the
Queen's jubilee, when he took part
in the celebration in London, he
Filtered in his note-book: "The
ambulance arrangements on the day
of the jubilco. The drinking troughs.
for horses and dogs. The cabmen's
shelters in the streets of London."
The willingness to learn, the kindly
heart and tho patriotic desire to
benefit his country are shown very
forcibly by these simple entries.

An exchange says : A Chicago
divine took for th« subject of his
sermon last Sunday the moral condition of the city, He reached the
conclusion that "Chicago is by no
means the godless place it is the
fashion to call it," A very favorable picture was drawn of the
amount of religious earnestness,
philanthropy and moral activity
existent therein. It thus appears
that Chicago is getting tired of its
somewhat bad reputation, and is
tlisposed to enter a claim to be considered ss good as its neighbors, and
remembering that ten good men
would have saved Gomorrah, there
is a faint chance for Chicago.
The fashionable craze in England
for expensive collections of orchids,
many conservatories being wholly
given up to theso plants, has been a
very costly custom, ss a recent law
suit shows, Mr. Sanders, a florist,
sued the Duchess of Montrose for s
bill of seventeen hundred poundi
for supplying her conservatory with
orchids. The Duchess thought the
bill too large, and the majority of
folks, to whom an orchid is an orchid
and nothing more, will be disposed
to agree with her Grace, But the
jury did not look at the matter - in
this light. They returned a verdict
for the plaintiff without leaving the
box, and awarded him tho full
amount claimed,
The Montreal Witness says: The
Northwest mounted police are
saving money. As nothing unfits
men for civic life so much as long
terms of polioe or military service,
they are right. Careful management by men on tuch a forco should
leave any of them with sufficient to
atock a farm after ten years' service.
As most of their polico duty is a
kind of military patrol, theie men
ihould know the country well and
ihould be able to choose good farms.
Wer. tho government of this force
as moral as it once wss, ana the
term of service brief, it might be
made a splendid machinery for
settling the country with stalwart
and self-reliant men.
Stories of Abo Lincoln always
pass us coin everywhere, says an exchange, and ic is not too late for one
told by his son to a friend in Washington. "My father," said Robert
Lincoln, "likely to stroll about
Washington without any escort or
show of distinction, and he some-
times strayed into curious company.
One day, as a lad, I accompanied
him down n back street, where we
encountered a regiment of soldiers
marching past. My father wus curious to learn what particular body
of troops this was, and as soon as he
camo within hailing distance he
inquired without addressing anybody in particular, 'Well, what's
this V Quick as the word . came a
reply from somewhere in the de
tnehment, 'Why, it's a regiment of
soldiers, you old fool you I"

HARRISON* WILL NOT MAY.
Indianapolis, Dec. 14.—Gen. Harrison when asked this morning about tho
report that Blaine had been offered the
position of secretary of state, refused to
say anything whatever about the matter,
stating he could not allow himself to be
Slaced In the position of affirming or
enylng reports as to his intentions.

anybody.
COULD NOT AIIRKK.
Boston, Dec. 14.—The jury In the
case of Gannon and others against the'
Allan Steamship Co., after an absence of
24 hoars, announced they could not agree
and were discharged. The suit was to

sanitary condition and construction of
the str. Prussian..
ANOTHER INFERNAL MACHINE.
Brooklyn, Dec. 14.—The infernal
machine episode which came near
causinc* the death of Airs. Wrestler and
A. Brabini a year ago, was recalled
this morning by a box of explosives
sent to Mr. Hugh McLaughlin, political boss of Kings county. Late last
night a boy brought tho box and told a
■errant that a note inside would explain who the sender was. The box
was about the size of a cigar box and
the note being unsigned aroused Mr.
McLaughlin's suspicions and he refused
to open it. A friend of the boss finally pushed the sliding lid; nothing happened and tha lid was pulled off, a
sharp explosion followed and one side
of the box was blown out and a quantity of glass and nails showered about
the room. No one waa injured. There
was sufficient explosives in the box to
have killed both men.

New York, Dec. 14.—The Tde-
gram publishes an interview with
Ex-Senator Piatt, with regard to the
report that Mr. J. O. Blaine had accepted the portfolio of secretary of
state, in which that gentleman characterises the report as "Kosh." Piatt
further stated, nccordinc* to tho Tele-
tram, that ho did not believe Blaine
lad accepted Ihe portfolio or that Harrison had tendered it to him. That
story hud been stated by the correspondent of a Cincinnati paper and
that it wns sent to every journal in
New York but only published by a
few.
T11R PORTFOLIO FOR BLAINE,
New York, Deo. 14.—Much interest haa been aroused here by tho explicit statement published in a morning paper that Mr. Blaine is to be
offered and will accept the portfolio of
lecretary of state in the cabinet of
Gen. Harrison. Despatches from
Washington say thnt the members of
congress from Blaine's own state,
Maine, while having no definite information on the subject yet are inclined to believe the story is true.
Joa, Manley, Mr. Blaine's political
lieutenant iu Maine, denies that tho
offer nan already been made, but be-
lieges it will be made and will be no*
cepted.

FUNDS FOR THE   FKlUT.
Quebec, Dec. 14.—Contingents of
politicians are daily going and coming
from Megantie and Dorchester, and
the campaign is becoming decidedly
exciting, A deputation has gone to

Battlbfqrd, N.W.T., Dee. 14.—A
young man named Poeha waa accidentally shot yesterday at a cattle ranch,
50 miles went of this town, by a boy of
Peter Taylor's. Inspector Chalmers
and the eorouor have gono out to investigate.	
fhgged Out.—None but those who have
becomo fagged out, know what a depressed, miserable feeling It is. All
strength is gono, and despondency has
taken hold of the suffcrorors. They fool
as though thoro is nothing to llvo for.
There, however, is a cure—one box of
Parmelee's Vegetable Pills will do wonders In restoring health and strength,
Mandrake and Dandelion are two of the
articles entering Into tho composition of
Parmelee's Pills.

HENRY HAWE8' CRIME.
Biruinohah, Dec. 8.—The crime
for which the mob endeavored to tako
the ltfe of Henry Hawos to-night was
tho supposed murder of his wife and
20 year-old daughter. The body of
the daughter was found about a week
ago, in a pond, with her throat out and
weights attached to  hor limbs.   Sua*
{doion at first attached to a negro who

Eondenee betweon President Van
[ome, of the C. P. R., and General
Manager Hickson, of the Grand Trunk,
relative to the attempt to combine

.reasonable to Canada,
ago it war aaid Hawes was about to
leave the country with nuothcr woman
with whom he had been siupeoted of
being on intimate terms, mul ho wus
arretted and placed in jail. From tliu
time suspicion was directed to Hwes,
and threats of lynching him on tho
slightest-proof cf hia guilt have beet-
made. The finding of the body of his
wife to-day inflamed the public mind,
and the attack of the mob on tho jail
was tho result.
Although there is nothing but circumstantial evidence against him, it
all points strongly to hiB guilt. It is
said to-night that another child of hia
has disappeared. It is feared it has
been murdered like the wife and oldest
daughter.

much liked by both the president and

MR, SMALLEY'fl   CABLE.
London, Dec. 14,—Lord Saliibury Is
taking a curious line with respect to the
Sackville businesa and the question of
his successor. Lord Randolph Churchill
asked yesterday afternoon in the houie
of commons whether any further communication on this subject had been received by the foreign office from the American government and whether, if ao, it
would be presented to the house before
the debate noxt week on the '"nJ-tmattt
vote. Sir Jamcn Fergusop admlftsi that
a statoment had been referred to Lord
.Sackville for his comments and aaid the
[ correspondence would be laid before the
house when complete. In other words
Lord Salisbury refuses to allow.the house
Id 1.:idw what the American government
says until after the discussion whether a
successor to Lord Sackville shall or ahall
uut he sent to Washington. If heper-
sists in his refusal to produce it Lord
Randolph and others will make It hot
for htm, when debate comes ou. The
feeling on this matter is growing stronger, and the policy of ''Sulks'' finds little
favor on either side of the houie.
ENCYCLOPEDIA BRITANNICA.
An interesting and even surprising
fact relating to America came out at Dr.
Robertson Smith's dinner to the Encycio-
Etedia Britannica contributors. Mr.
lack, one of the publishers, told, tha
company the entire circulation of the
ninth edition was 50,000 copies, of which
40,000 went to the United Statea.
Americans havo bought four times as
many oopies of the best Britiih cyclopedia as the English themselves have.
America has, in fact, absorbed a million
and a quarter volumes of this great work.
The American minister was. In'these
circumstances, a mott fitly Invited guest.
He wai unable to go, but sent a letter
ending, "tbe Encyclopaedia Brittanioa
is doubtless the most useful book In
tho world."
THE COST OF OCCUPATION.
London, Dec 14.—Edward Stanhope,
secretary of war, replying to a question
by John Dillon, said the coat for tho
army occupation in Egypt foi? the current
year would £100,000. Thii expense
would be borne by Egypt The Egypt-

DOUBLE MURDER.
New Albany, Ind., Dec. 10,—William
Benson, a farmhand, is under arrest for
killing hia employer, Jacob Mottweller,
and wounding Mrs, Moottwcller, pro*
bably fatally, late yesterday, on a
farm near here. The killing was the
result of a quarrel because Bonson wanted to marry a servant girl named Sally
Snyder,
MONSIONOR PERSICO'S REPORT.
Rome. Deo. IS,—The report of M011-
signor Penico, the special papal envoy
to Ireland, is almost completed. In
it he refers to the anomaly of tho governing authorities in Ireland and asserts that nil the Irish Protestants are
ill disposed towards the Catholics.
The Pope, ho believes, can do much in
the direction of restoring good feeling
in Ireland provided he is able to convince the Irish that he is not acting
under the agreement with the English
government. The people must be
brought to separate political from moral questions, and must not serve as an
instrument in the hinds of those, who
under the pretext of restoring their
nationality, lead them to commit acts
which nre contrary to morality. Mon*
signor Perscio seriously disapproves of
boycotting, but believes that the political aspirations of tho Irish must be
satisfi-a before pence can be restored.
Volumes of Bombast have been published about tho multifarious and irreconcilable effects of many proprietary remedies. The proprietors of Northrop A
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery content
themselves with facts susceptible of
proof. They state their Purifier to be
what it has proved itself to be, an eradi-
cator of Dyspepsia, Constipation, Liver
and Kidnoy troubles, and a fine general
alterative.

THB PARNELL COMMISSION*
London, Dec. 13.—Before the Parnell roinmtaion to-day a laborer named Buckley stated tbat ha joined the
Fenians at Tmlw in 1080. In 1832 a
man named Roach wn expelled from
the national league for causing the
arrest of a lea-juer. At a Fenian meeting it was arranged that the witne.-ra
with two men, whose names wen Fita-
geruld and Phc-mx, ahould shoot
Poach and revolvers wsn then gives
to them for that purpose. After several unsuccessful attempts to kill their
man, a meeting wr-s held at Carey's
house at which the witness tnn asked if he would shoot Roach if the
league provided funds tor his escape
to America. Witness consented to
this proposition and aoon after met
Roach while the latter was driving
cattle. Buckley ihot at his victim but
h;s revolver missed fire. Roach then
took to his heels and escaped. The
witness wai afterwards arrested and
charged with attempted murder but
spt off by swearing to an alibi. The
league gave him £50 with whleh to m
America. He was dissatisfied with the
amount but Phoenix told him that ha
could not expect any more seeing that
he failed to kill Roach. On cross-examination Buckley said that before
ahootinft at Roach he used to practice
with a revolver shooting at a stone
the size of a man's heed. This last
confession caused a sensation in court.

Iild-J EvenlBS. Dec. 14, 1888.
Several of our eotempornries have
been discussing, lately, the establishment of ii provincial press association ; but we aro afraid tho laudable scheme is going to coino out ot
the small end of tho hoi .1, owing to
the influential Vancouver press
being counted out in tho start, the
Sems and the World having already
black-balled each other for membership in the proposed association.
We suppose tho press association
could get on without these two
journals) butjConsidering that Vancouver is the salt water terminus of
the 0. F. R., and a blustering little
placo to boot, we would give notice
of motion to the effect that, at
the first meeting of the association,
the rules be suspended and the two
black-balled journalists be admitted
by speoial dispensation. We feel
sure that our other provincial co
temporaries would feel sorry to see
these two left out in the cold. There
is reason to hopo, too, that association with the other members of
the provincial press would have
suoh an educating and elevating
effect upon our gladiatorial Vanoouver ^temporaries that, in time, they
would be qualified for full membership and become ornaments to the
association.
Science describes   the experience
of a gentleman who placed himself
under the influence of hasheesh. He
smoked it until he felt  a profound
sense of well-being,  and   then put
the pipe aside.  After a few minutes
he seemed to become two   persons;
he wus conscious of his real self reclining on a lounge and of why he
was thero; his double was in a vast
building   of  gold    and    marble,
splendidly brilliant, and  beautiful
beyond all description.    He felt an
extreme gratification, and believed
himself in heaven.     This double
personality soon vanished, but reappeared in a few   minutes.     His
real self was undergoing rhythmical
spasms throughout his body; the
double was a marvellous instrument,
producing sounds of exquisite sweet
ness and perfect rhythm.     Then
sleep ensued, and all ended.     Jpon
another occasion sleep and  waking
came and went so rapidly that they
seemed to be confused.   His double
seemed to be tlio  sea,   bright and
tossing as the wind  blew,  then a
continent.   Again,   he  smoked a
double dose, and sat  at  his table
penoil in hand, to record the effects.
He lost all conception of time.   He
rose to open a door, and  it seemed
to take a million years.    He went
to pacify an angry dog, and endless
ages seemed to have   passed when
he returned.   Conceptions of space
retained their normal character. He
felt an unusual fullness of  mental
impressions—enough to fill volumes.
He understood clairvoyance, hypnotism, and all else.   He was not one
man or two, but several men living
at the same time in different places,
and with different occupations.   He
could not write one  word   without
hurrying to the next, his  thoughts
flowing with enormous rapidity. The
few words   he   did   write meant
nothing.   The foregoing is so like
the experiences of the preternatural
and supernatural sort of people that
we read about at times, that we are
strongly inclined   to  attribute all
such   extraordinary   conditions of
mind and body and alleged  spirit-
ualistiR'e.iperiences,inenable trances,
and indescribable visions, to more or
less  violent   nervous disturbance,
superinduced by a morbid physical
or mental condition, in some instances, but in many cases caused directly by indulgence in alcohol,  opium
in its various forms,   or  tho still
more   powerful drug    known  ss
hasheesh or Indian hemp.   Many of
onr oity readers will  recollect  the
startling statements made by Bev.
Dr. Nourse, during his  course of
lectures here in R«n*aa'«'a*>,. *«„.   re.
lating to the extensive indulgence
in these drugs by professional  men
and others, and even women, in all
parts of the civilised world, but in
the larger oentres particularly.   The
striking conception of "Sr. Jekyll
and Mr. Hyde" is, doubtless, more
the  picturesque  embodiment  and
presentment of a   world-wide fact,
rather than thn mere creation of a
vivid imagination.
and forty-second  cousins  are just
dying to got hold of the cooing, triumphant infant, so that  they can
pet it, give it paregoric, hug it   to
death,   while some of tho   moro
hungry  are just  "fit to eat" tho
bouncing babe.   Between the importunate  shrieks  of  the  annexationists a^d the more sober raono-
tcr.e of the imperial federationists,
.. „t and anon is heard tho wail  of
t!:a ;>aregorio fiend, "Canada should
Lava the right of making hor own
coiuu.orcial treatioS."   Tho Halifax
Herald, in a recent issue,  not inaptly answers (his demand, as follows :   "In the first  place Canada
at  present  enjoys,  under certain
limitations, the right. to negotiate
her own commercial treaties.   Is it
a treaty with Spain that wo  desire
to negotiate, so that wo may secure
for our produots a  more  favorable
admission to tho Spanish West India
Islands, then tho  imperial   government arm the Canadian commissioner with all the powers of a   British
plenipotentiary for tho accomplishment of this end.    Is it  a   fishery
difficulty with  tho   United   States
that demands  settlement,   then
Canadian representative is invested
with the powers of an imperial commissioner, so that Canada's interests
may bo  carefully   conserved; and
the treaty, even whon negotiated, is
subject to tlie independent .ratification of tho Ounn-lau   parliament.
What moro complete powers could
the Canadian  people demand; except, as one portion of the  empire,
they seek to share in the   responsibility of  selecting  imperial  representatives  in   all thoso  cases in
which  imperial  interests are  involved 1"   The fact that Canada has
raised a tariff wall between herself
and the Mother Country,  as  well
as against the outside world, would
also, seem to indicate that she had a
good deal of rope in regulating  her
own affairs, commercial and  otherwise.   Whatever may bo said about
Canadian independence, which  we
pmotically enjoy, according to our
capacity, at present,  it is certain
that we should be  bond-slaves in
comparison,    if   the  forty-second
cousins—the     annexationists—got
hold of us.   Then we  should lose
our identity altogether and be forced
to accept any  arrangements that
might bo made for  us; for what
voice would   6,000,000 have   with
60,000,000  in   determining commercial treaties or fixing the tariff
with the outside world. It behooves
the Canadian infant, too, just now,
to look a "leedle oudt," as the hungry American  cousin   appears determined to have it, either at one
mouthful, or, according to the latest
accounts, a limb at a time.    While
we believe that Canada's destiny Ib
to enter into yet  closer relations

Marquis of Lome, speaking at  the
Royal Colcnial Institute meeting in
London, Tuesday evening, that it is
"ridiculous to suppose that the empire is in a  state oi  spontaneous
combustion and must collapse unless
some cut and dried scheme   is  immediately adopted."   And the same
expression applies with equal force
to the Canadian  Dominion  in  its
present condition,

dnolyl THE JUDQB "OOT."
Bow B. CM *Jv««a 1. the Bad.
Judge Whlbbledon, of the Twenty*
ninth Judicial Circuit, is, while on the
bench,, man of aevere dignity, but in
private liie he ia known aa t sentleman
ot many admirable social qualities. Several days ago the Judge went out into
the mountains to rest and amuse himself,
and had Just dismounted from hia horse
when a peculiar-looking old fellow came
along the rough path that wound ita way
among the jagged rocks. The old fellow,
upon spying the Judge, stopped, looked
earnestly, and then en odd smile crept
about the corner, of hia mouth, and then,
as though seeking ambush, secreted itself
in the old fellow's whiskers.
"Good.taorning," the Judge pleawntlj
called.
"Hi."
"Do you live about here ?"
"Ah, hob."
"Any fish in thb stream 1"
"Dunno."
"Plenty ol squirrels up there, I suppose."	
"Dunno." ■> '
"Think we'll have rain ?'■
"Dunno."
The Judge, aomewhatdiagusted, turned
away and threw his lino into the water.
"Chag," a stone struck his cork. He
turned quickly, bnt saw no movement on
the part of tho old fellow, who sat on
a atone, with his hands shoved deep into
his pockets."
"What was that?" tho;Judgo demanded.
"What*"
"Something struck my cork."
"Don't know nothin' erbout It."
The Judge turned .way, and the next
moment another stone struck hia cork.
The Judge tuned quickly, but the old
fellow tat with his hands in his pockets.
"Look here, sir, I believe that's you."
"Yes, this fa me."
"I say I believe you threw those
"Which atones?"
"Thoso that struck my cork. Don't yon
do it again ?"
The Judge again devoted himself to his
fishing, but not without interruption, for
a stone came down and knocked his cork
off.
"You confounded old wretch I What's
the matter with you?
"Nothin'. Whut'a the matter with
you?"
"You good-for-nothing old rascal, you
don't know how to treat * gentleman,"
"Never had a chance to treat one at
tali."
"Don't talk to me that way. You don't
know who I am."
"Yat, I reckon I do." The smile
sprang from its ambush in his whiskers
and pranced over his face. "Some time
ago, said the old fellow, "I was a witness
Inyo' Cou't,an' white I wus thar you
let one o' them lawyers ketch me in a He
on'frowned at me an' rid over tne an'
hii me down an' ahuck yo' head at me
an' done everything you could to make
me wush that I wuz dead, an, now you
muat git."
"What do you mean?"
"Mean that you must git; mosey 'way
fruralicrc. It's my time to make you
feel mean.  Drop that polo an'git."
"I won't do it, sir."
"Won't you? Walt, well see."
He drew an enormous horse-pistol.

"Git I,'
Let mo get my hat and coot."
"Nevermind.  Gltl"        , ,.
The Judge got, and when he returned
home he told nia wife that he had given
hia hat and coat to t poor blind man
whom he had found in Che hills.
"Ah, Robert," she said, aa aho pnt her
nrma around his neck, "your
and benevolence will Im
rewarded, it not
in this world-"
"That'a all right,Mary. Thepoom
needed help."
"Why, you've torn your trousers and
lost the heel off one of your boots.".
"Yes, I jumped into the water to wye

A very funny acene, of wlileh the Rev.
Dr. Howard Crosby was tho central
figure, (occurred a few days ago in a
Fourth-avenue car, New York. The
"octor and somo ladies had just taken
their Beats when a man who was con-
liderably under tho Influence ot liquor
boarded the car and sat down opposito
them. His conduct soon becamo rather
boisterous, and two men who sat near by
began to swear at hlm and threaten to
pu( him off. This naturally did not improve matters, and Dr. Crosby, seeing
tbat the ladies were becoming frightened,
signaled the two sober men to stop their
tantalizing, while he went over and eat
down beside tho drunkard. After the
minister had spoken a few words in tho
fellow's ear be stopped bis noise, and tho
doctor went back to his seat. For nearly a mile further the man traveled without causing tbe least disturbance, and
then Dr. Crosby uw that he wanted to
get ont. He signaled to the conductor
and the car stopped. Th. drunken man
rose from his seat, but before going out
turned toward hll lata tormentora with
a most horrible frown, and then stepped
over to Dr. Crosby, white over his face
spread a maudlin, idiotio grin. Patting
the minister on the ahoulder two or
three times, h. taid In a very audible
tone,"You'ah a good feller, I guess you
know bow tis'h yourself,"    ,
The doctor told that story to apt .
ol gentlemen a day or two ago with *
great deal of relish, and said it waa th*
best proof of sympathy that he had ever
experienced. He followed it up with
the following, which happened several
years ago:
A plsca orlal friend sent him a hug*
ud palatable-looking salmon, the receipt of which greatly delighted the good
doctor'a heart. In hia generosity h*
straightway Invited hall ■ down gourmand frianda to ahar. his good fortun*
ud h.lp dlspos. of th* fish. Dinnw
Um. came, with all th* guest, on hand,
and they adjou-nad with great anticipations to tho table. For the tecond
coun. the ialmon wm served, and every
man's aouth watend. .The doctor
served to. dish, andth.y til fall upon it
The first ga.tleman who took t mouthful
slopped suddenly, his tae. turntd juit,
and with a quiok movement he raised
his napkin to his mouth. Tbe boat
noticed it, as did the other guests, but
toolate.
Astonishment wa* am. In *v*r-*
musele of Dr. Crosby', face, when *
abarp ring at th* door bell announced an
arrival. It was a boy with a letter from
the donor of th. salmon, who stated that
it was the finest sptclmen tbat he had
ever caught, and, aa he knew Dr. Crosby
was connected with the Museum ol
Natural History, he hid taken the liberty ol preserving It in alchohol, and—
Dr. Crosby haa never yot had the cour-
Se to read the rest ol that letter, but all
e guests present, with their numbers
augmented by tho person ol the donor of
thst fish, soon ate * dinner at the doe-
tor's house tor which that reverend
gentleman paid In hard cash.

Dan McGary, of the Houston Age, recently paid a complimentary visit to the
city of Galveston, which is tho great commercial rival of Houston. McGary, owing
to his many good qualities of heart anil
stomach, was invited to tho Galveston
Elito Clnb, where tho prominent Gal-
vestonians assembled to do him homage.
McGary waa asked what impression
Galveston made upon him. He r ilied
that it waa a very nice, quiet Utile town,
but that the people did not possess tho
intelligence that was noticeable in Houston, "present company of course excepted." He kept on making odious remarks
about Galveston and tho natives, always,
however, courteously excepting present
company. *
Among the Galvestonians present was
Tom Dealy, of tho Gulmton News. McGary asked Dealy if he had ever been to
HouBton. Dealy replied that he hod beon
there.
'How did you like the people ?"
'Very much, indeed," replied Dealy,
"they aro the handsomest and tho most
intelligent peoplo I ever saw, present company excepted.
Ten minutes afterward McGary had
sent a telegram to his managing editor to
strike the (laleetton New, from the ox-
change list of tho Houston Age,

"What have yon got there, John?"

"A roasted fowl, my lord." '
The nobleman Bald nothing till after
the departure of his friend, when he
called his servant before him.
"John," said he, "you would have dona
the houso moro honor if you had said
'roasted towels.' Remember that hero-
after."
"Yes, my lord."
A fortnight afterward tho nobleman
invited sevoral more friends to dinner.
Upon tho servant entering with an assistant, each carrying a dish, the master
•aid,—
" What have you got there, John ?"
The man had not forgotten the correction he had undergone, and replied,—
"Roasted oxen and calves."

CMIdrtfi Ciy for Pitcher1- Castoria
It waa announced a week ago that
a leap year ball would tako place during Christmas week, but it is learned
tho project has been nbandoned. As
soon as the intention of the ball was
mado public two gentlemen declared
thoy were forood lo visit Seattle, a cor-
tain society leador hud promised to go
to Agassiz, nnothor couple to Viotoria,
and so on until the object of the boll
was rendered useless. Never mind
ladiei, they may be glad four years
honoe to patronize anything in the
shape of leap year festivities.
The foot-ball matoh to-morrow
between tho Junior teams of the Westminster and Vancouver clubs will commence sharp at 2.30 o'clock. The following will represent Vancouver! J.
Dempster, baok: J. Rounsefell, L.

K W. Pugh, and A. N. Other, forwards. After the match tho viators
will be dined at the Greyhound Hotel.
Tho Times says: Mr. Hans Helftesen,

highly pleased with tho result of the
trip that he will probably embark in
the enterprise next summer. Mr. Hel-
geson and Capt. McLean took up
claims on Sydney harbor for use as
fishing stations; Bail, commonly called
blaek cod, red cod, halibut, dogfish
and many other unknown variotics,
were brought up on the trawls, from
two to three hundred fathoms, in great
abundance. Practically very little is
yet Irnoara «,'tho mrcfcIi ur our nsh-

to far acquired it will not surprise our
fishermen if the Pacifio proves to be
more valuable than the Atlsntic to the

A Charity Ball.
A charity ball is tho latest scheme
now on foul with the ladies, the intention being to devote the profits of
tho dance towards a certain charity.
Charity balls are all very well, bat
some people are ao small-minded as tu
think that if the ladies would forego
tho ball, and contribute the same
amount to tho charity thnt they would
spend on dress and adornment to
make a stunning appearance at the
same, thero would be a much larger
sum to aid the good work than half a
dozen balls would realize. Of course
people who speak this way nre naBtyi
mean things and regular bears who
never take fun out of anything and
try to spoil the enjoyment of others.

A long Consolation*
Sir Androw Clark, sitting in hia con*
sulatiou room in London, haa been
treating a patient in Victoria, Vancouver Island, The telegraph lines of
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company
were joined with the ocean cables, and
Victoria was thus placed in direct communication with London. At the for*
mer city Lord Enntsmore ia lying ill of
typhoid fever, and his physicians held
long consulationa by telegraph with
Sir Androw Clark, Minute details of
the case, iuoluding the pulse, temperature, and respiration, were forwarded,
and a general mode of treatmeut was
agreed upon. For three hours mes*
sagos passed backwards and forwards.
Some 6000 miles separated the gentlemen who were thus in couference.

Deserters from "c Batter**.
On Monday morning two men, named Graham and Hill, both belonging
to "0" Battery, R.O.A., procured a
horse and Buggy nt Barlows' livery

they were going to Saanich for a day's
shooting. Graham at one time held a
position on tho city police force, and
before that was in the naval service,
and on joining the battery was placed
in charge of the canteen. His companion, Bill, ranked as gunner in the
battery. Thoy were given a light,

Mr. Barlow becoming anxious instituted a thorough search yesterday for
tho missing turn-out, and finally found

were not to be found. It is supposed
that they visited the reserve at Saanich.

PUBLIC OPINION
Hunts Judge Bice over the Coals Cur
Tahiti t% About "PnnipereilAnd Felled''
Criminals and SBsaestmi Ihe more
Profitable Employ-neat or Convict
labor. 	
The despatches Wednesday contained Judge Rice's charge to the grand
jury at Kingston, in which he requested them to visit the penitentiary and
give an opinion as to whether tho convicts should be profitably employed or
maintained as a sort of "country
gentry," and suggesting that Canada's
penitentiaries be made a source of
profit to the Dominion by the labor
performed by the convicts. Those
who have visited, or read the reports
of, tho six establishments of this kind
that Canada possesses, will have como
to the conclusion that, while convicts
are treated humanely, they are neither
pampered arc petted as Judge Rice
elaims. Thia judge, who should respect tho rights of all classes, would
institute a system of manufacturing of
staple, aaleablo articles by prison labor
—a system that has been in vogue for
two decides in the penal institutions
of England, competing with the honest
mechanic, sucking the very sap out of
his wages, increasing the poverty of the
poor—thereby increasing their crimes.
Or, on the other hand, Judge Rice
would have our penitentiaries a veritable -'Siberia." The main purpose of
these institutions ia not to harden the
nature of the unfortunate who happens
to be an inmate, but to correct their
course in life while undergoing the
punishment of compulsory confinement,
It ii very apparent that Judge Rice's
experience iB vory limited, perhaps
only covering the district in which he
praoticed as a third-rate lawyer before
his political friends took pity upon
him, and procured him the scat upon
the judicial benoh he certainly does
not honor, when ho makes auch utter-
ancea. May all suoh narrow-minded
men have passed away and their names
and memory havo sunk in oblivion before any attempt is made to compel our
honest mechanic to compete with, and
hia family suffer on account of, convict
labor. Public Opinion.

Railway Bylaws Sustained.
By a special despatch in this paper
it will be seen that the attempt to
quash the "Workshops Bylaw," thus
striking at the root of the Southern
Railway scheme, haa failed, and the bylaw bos been sustained. This will be a
matter of rejoicing to all who have the
true interest of the city intelligently at
heart. On a legal technicality, the resolution of the counoil, making over
the debentures to a trust, has been set
aside. This is a comparatively trifling
affair, sb substantially the same ends
can be attained by similar means. It
is to be regretted that the city's
legal advisers did not guard
against even this trifling mishap and expense, but lawyers, like
doctors, ure always disagreeing, and in
this cose we have merely another instance. The city may fairly be congratulated that the injunctors
were defeated in their real purpoie
—the overthrow and repudiation
of the entire acheme—and merely won
on their stalking horse—the injunction
re the debentures trust.
Coroner's Inquest
The inqueit on the body of Jim, the
Chinaman killed by the train yesterday
afternoon, was held by Mr. Coroner
Feilis ut 6hs n*>-ff,l  Columbian     _tmt.pl
tal thii morning. A jury was chosen
with Mr. D, Lyal aa foreman. The
evidence adduced went to ihow that
the deceased had been deaf for several
yean, aud therefore waa unable to
hear the approach of the train or the
shouts of the people who called to warn
him of the danger. Tbe engine was
moving quite slowly at the time the
accident occurred—not more than three
miles an hour. When tbe Chinaman
was struck he was knocked clear of the
track and would have suffered no further injury than that sustained by the
fall had he not commenced to kick and
roll about in great alarm. It waa
while thus acting that he threw hia leg
under the wheel and lost his life. Under the circumstances no blame could
be attached to any one except, perhaps, to the railway and city authorities who permit suoh a dangerous pas-
sago being used by the general public.
The jury found the following verdict:
"The jury find a verdict of accidental
death in the case of Jim, a Chinaman.
The jury do not attach blame to any
person, but strongly recommend the
corporation to place a sidewalk and
hand rail across-that portion of Douglas street adjoining the railroad
property.
