EKpcrimonts have recently been
ni'ido ;.., g!iow the effect of cigarette
smdlte ifiibS mice. Dr. Dudley, of
.YnndcrUlt University, cooped up
some itiieo where t*iey wero obliged
toiiiiKtH the smoke of cigarettes.
The first mouse died in 22 minutes,
and tho second in 25, the third,
when tho supply of smoko was increased, in G minutes. It is thus
conclusively established that smoking cigarettes is a dangerously pernicious praotice—for raico.
BayB the Toronto Mail: Prom
every quarter protests come against
the present system of publio school
education as being unfitted ta givo
Oio youth of the country a practical
equipment for businoss pursuits.
The latest is from British Oolumbia.
Attention is called to the necessity
which exists thero for business
schools or commercial colleges, and
the British Columbian argues that
the school system of the province
should be modified as to embrace
both business colleges and industrial
schools.
A very interesting commercial
ease has just been deoided in Kew
York, Last session the state legislature passed a bill prohibiting
storekeepers offering gifts to induce
the publio to make purehases. The
court of appeals of the stato has now
decided that the law is unconstitutional on the ground that it interferes with the free sale of food, for
the condition is imposed that no one
shall sell food and at the same time
and as part of the transaction give
away any other thing.
The McLeod Gazette is authority
for the statement that the Oanadian
Pacific railway will build a road
through Crow's Nest to British Columbia, and will make it their main
line. It is said that the pass gives a
more direct routo from tho main
lino, say nt Medicine Hat, to Vancouver than tho present one, and
thut in the Crow's Nest, and subsequent passes ou the way to the
Pacific, the grades are scarcely perceptible. While ou the present
route immense engines can only
take four freight cars at a time up
some of the grades, by way of the
Crow's Nest un ordinary freight
engine could take a largo freight
train most of tho way alone. A
railway through tho Crow's Nest
pass would traverse the rich Kootenai country, the choicest part of all
British Oolumbia.
Au exchange says: Prof. Wiggins! se.-'ins determined to wreck
this old world of ours. He is now
greatly bothered about Enoke's
comet, which ho suspects of having
designs of rushing into Mars. Tho
effect of tliis conjunction would be
to so increase the attractive powers
oi tho little planet that the waters
of tho earth would bulge ont into
space and submerge the greater
portion of the present land surface
of the earth. Only the higher land
of the American continents vould
peep above the restless water of the
ocean, while Australia and such
low lying countries would disappear
altogether, thus settling once for all
the jack rabbit pest ou tint island
continent Perhaps the Dominion
government had better delay the
proposed conference with Australians until the professor calls off his
comet
Tennyson, saysu thoughtful writer,
can take a worthless sheet of papor
and by writing a poem on it make
it worth 85,000. That's genius.
Mr. Vanderbilt can write fewer
words on a similar sheet and mako
it worth $50,000,000. That's capital. The United States government can take an ounce and a
quarter of gold and stamp upon it
an "eagle bird" and "Twenty Dollars." That's money. The mechanic can take the material worth
$50 and make it into a watch worth
$100. That's skill. The merchant
can tako an article worth twenty-
five cents and sell it to you for $1.
That's business. A lady can purchase a comfortable bonnet for $10,
but prefers to pay $100 for one.
That's foolishness. The ditch digger works ten hours a day and
shovels out three or four tons of
earth for $1.   That's labour.

Fishing by artificial light is not
a new thing, but the way some
fishermen along the coast of Maine
aro using the electric light is new.
The old way was to plunge an in-
candescent lamp into the water,
the connection being made with
some souroe of electricity on board
tlie fisliing vessel, and tho mains to
tlm lamp often got foul of the fishing
tackle or the cable of the vessel,
destroying ita usefulness. Now a
Frenchman has discovered a better
way by adopting n lamp worked by
a primary battery, the whole of
which can bo thrown overboard and
regained when tlie trip is ended.
The battery consists of six Bunsen
colls, in which, however, chromic
acid is placed instead of nitric aoid,
formerly used. The cells are connected in tension with a twelve volt
Edison lump. The success of the
experiments lately had presages the
goneral adaption by east coast fisher-
mon if this now discovery.

move tliu corns root and branch, by the

who have tried it have the same ox*
pcrience.

GtlEAT BVUCOLING CONSPIRACY.'
St. Paul, Dec. 17.—Thero is every
reason now to believe that tho smug-
gl:ng conspiracy which wos unearthed
by United States officers here, by information of one of the band arrested
at Denver, and the subsequent seizure
of 800 pounds of opium e t St. Vincent,
is more far reaching and of vastly
greater proportions than at first supposed, It is certain that the operations of the smugglers were uot confined to opium, but that large quantities of silk and costly fabrics from
China have been landed in British
Columbia and brought to various points
on the Canadian Pacifio Railroad consigned to tho smugglers. The officials
are preserving the utmost seorecy in
hope of catching some of the smugglers.

Such demonstrations as occurred
in this city on Saturday night have,
like all manifestations or events,
some reason behind them—which is
another thing altogether from saying
that they are commendatory, or oven
excusable. Burning and hanging in
effigy, tarring nnd feathering, rail
riding, and lynching are nil lawless
and inexcusable actions in themselves; but they bavu occurred time
and again throughout tho civilized
world, and very often with suoh
strong reason as to constitute un excuse in the eyes of un impartial
public, "Served him right 1" is very
often the exclamation of tho popular
tribunal in such cases, .Sometimes
the popular verdict is right, but not
always. When a man has committed some revolting offence against
society, with which tho law is considered not to deal adequately or
with a decent celerity, and the offender is seized by his indignant
neighbors and put to public disgrace,
or the rope, according to tho enormity of his offence, public opinion, as
a rule, sanctions and approves tho
swift retribution, if it is considered
that the unwritten law of equity has
been vindicated, though the law of
the country may have been slightly
anticipated. It is not necessary to
recite instances, which everyone
must be able to recall. Happily,
though, such is the respect and confidence in the law and its adminis-
. tration in our land, that such instances as we have referred to are
rare or altogether lacking, and the
circumstances would have to be very
exceptionable that would excuse
them. Burning and hanging in effigy ure the most harmless, and, par-
haps, the most foolish, of all the
methods of popular punishment wo
have mentioned, and are usually
meted out to those who have offended, or are considered to have offended,
against the publio interests. It
cannot be commended, except as
operating as a safety-valve for the
popular indignation, and has no
value except as showing which way
the wind blows. The demonstration
on Saturday night, however, was not
necessary for that purpose even, as
the popular feeling on the Southern
Bailway matter has been apparent at
every stage of the proceedings.
The despatches of the last few
days would seem to leave very little
room to doubt the truth of the report that both Stanley and Emin
Bey have run their heads into the
Mahdi's noose and have been brought
up sharp. Although any definite
news from these veterans, who have
been swallowed up for so long in the
bowels of savage Africa, must be
welcome to a curious and anxious
civilized world, a general disappointment and regret will be felt that the
two bravo hearts did not emerge
from the jungles and shadows of the
Dark Continent under happier and
more glorious auspice.''—which they
certainty deserved, and would havo
gained, but for the treachery of
their black allies and escort, The
situation is not only a humiliating
und precarious one for the dauntless
two themselves, but galling and
damage-threatening to British interests und prestige in Egypt and
the Soudan. Ouptives of tho cruel
and perfidious Mahdi, with legions
of fanatical and murderous Arabs at
his back, their livo3 are in danger of
forfeit at any timo, and, unless England abandons her operations at Suakim, and even ubandoms Suakim itself, and otherwise accedes to every
demand of the Mahdi, who now
holds the winning cards, will not be
worth a moment's purchase. The
British government have got a problem similar to the one presented in
the case of the lamented and heroic
Gordon, who fell a victim to the
Muhdi's predecessor nt Khartoum
about three years ago, and it is to
be feared that a like sequel will ensue in the present case. Gladstone
has been unsparingly denounced for
having left Gordon to perish, although, before reaching hasty conclusions as to the extent of his
blameworthiness, the magnitude of
the difficulties that had to be encountered should be considered.
Salisbury and his administration
will now havo to exercise the utmost wariness, and even then British interests in the Soudan will havo
to be sacrificed to secure the safety
of Stanley and Emin Bey. Fnblie
opinion in England, which rose in
indignation at Gordon's sacrifice,
which it was believed could have
been averted, will not, we are convinced, hear of any compromise between material national interests in
the Soudan and the lives of the two
captive heroes upon whom the eyes
of tue eivilized world are fixed,
A lady from Syracuse1 write*! "For
about teven years before taking Northrop
ft Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cnre, Ituffered from a complaint
very prevalent with oar sex, I was unable to walk any distance or stand on
my feet for more than a few minutes at
a time without feeling exhausted, hut
now I am thankful tosay, I can walk
two miles without feeling ihe least incon-
veaitnee." For Female Complaints it
has no equal.
From their answers to questions
in the houso of commons,   says   an
eastern exchange, it is manifest that
the imperial ministry intend to  defer for a timo any steps as   to  the
appointment of a British representative at Washington, and   also  any
discussion as to tho present position
of the fishery question.   This  is   a
course which is plainly   in  accordance with the national dignity and
is also expedient in the interest  of
amicable    international   relations,
Though both great  parties
United   States  were implicated in
the  electioneering   insults   to  the
British Empire nnd the   Dominion
of Canada, President Cleveland and
his secretaries were the   official   representatives of their country,   and
to make an approach to them by replacing the British minister at Washington by  a  successor, while they
remain in office though  rejected by
the people, would be to condone their
deliberate  bad  manners und invite
further contumely.    The new executive will start with a clean slate as
far  as  any  official   record is concerned. . After it is installed will be
time enough for any steps   for  the
resumption by the British   authorities   of  tho  diplomatic position so
rudely interrupted.* The communications to the imperial   parliament
of papers as to the fishery question,
and a statement ,*f t/iu proposed  future steps in this mutter,   may   be
deferred with equal reason.    During
the presidential campaign the  consideration of this question   by   our
neighbors wus so   notoriously   and
openly complicated by electioneering
expediency that little clue to   their
real opinion can be obtained  from
their declarations when  partly   influenced  by   such  vote-influencing
manteuvres.    Nor can any new diplomatic action be taken   with   advantage till after the swoll   of  this
campaign storm has subsided.   It is
clear that the nations   must accept
tho condition that any civilized international communications can   be
carried on with the   United  States
only during the lucid intervals between  tho   tumult,    the    modern
Saturnalia, of two long  drawn-out
presidential campaigns.    If this  is
not  altogether  pleasant   to other
nations or promotive of friendly intercourse, it is only fair to remember
that if the United   States   become
periodically offensive to their neigh-
bora, tbey do not themselves escape
freely   from   the infliction.    If the
politicians of their two great parties
studiously insult other nations they
are quite as lavish in their insults to
each other and us   unscrupulous   in
tho devices on which these   mutual
attacks are based.    If   our business
relations with tho United States are
periodically obstructed and depressed,
their own internal business is interrupted to an extent whioh by  their
own   calculation  involves a loss of
many tens of millions of dollars, and
all their other affairs not immediately   bearing  on  tho campaign are
thrown into disorder or aro shelved
for the time, however urgent.   We
may be thankful for our happier lot
of having a system  of government
more reasonable, more efficient, more
truly popular and not subjecting us
to the evils  which  our neighbors
have to undergo at these frequently
recurring

Wc cut 190 acres of our own grain with a " Little Maxwell" Self Binder, purchased from F. G. Strickland & Co. during
the summer of 1888, with two horses. A large portion of this
grain was laying almost flat on the ground. After finish-
ing our own grain we sent the machine to one of our neighbors to
work along with one of the latest Osbornes, and the owner of the
Osborne pronounced tlie Maxwell a lighter and better machine in

'Many Mr.JJyflart ? That old man ?
Mfimmn, you are jesting!"
.Sho .stood at tho open window of the
eliaby littlo sitting-room—a tall, straight
young figure in a clinging black gown.
A girl with a fair, aweet faco, brown
eyes, and golden hair—Lucia Denello.
At the other window—both of which
opened upon great, straggling, unkept
grounds—a delicate-looking woman was
bending ovor a huge basket of darning.
AH sorts and conditions of garments,
nil of n diminutive size, bespoke tho occupation of the weary, toil-worn mother
of small children.
Mrs. Denello glanced up, with a pair
of tiny, dilapidated socks in her hand,
and her tired face grew moro careworn,
and she suppressed a weary sigb,
"Daughter, tbo very thought of your
boing forced into n loveless marriage
breaks my heart. If you do not—can*
not—learn to caro for Mr. Dysart"—
I.uciashruggod hor graceful shoulders
disdainfully— "then I will say no moro.
Uut ho is good and kind. He oilers to
(■tltlo a handsome income upon me, so
that the children can bo properly educated. Ho offers to lift tho mortgage
from this place, and secure it to mo free
of nil incumbrance; nlso to refurnish
nml beimtifv tlio houso. Roallv, my
dcjr, Woodlawn would bo a lovely
\>.u--p.', wilii Bomo necessary improve*
■ .ts, nud with means sufficient to
1 ,i tlio grounds in order. And when
/ icllect upon our forlorn condition
rice your poor father's death, and
' nee about me at tho six littlo ones—
ii I younger than yon, to be fed and
r.at lied and educated upon the mere
pittance whtch ia left me from youi
lather's lifo insurance—it makes my
heart stand still. And Mr. Dysart loves
you. His elegant home Is near enough,
so (hat I would not have to lose you altogether. Oh, Lucia, darling, I would
never consent for von to go far away."
"»Not oven to Italy, mamma?"
The girl's sweet faco had grown tender
and gentlo. She camo to ner mother's
side, and drew the unfinished mending
from her hands.
"There 1 Let mo do it, mamma.
Truly I am not tired. I've only given a
music lesson this morning. Now,
mamma"—with a mischievous smile,
which did not conceal the undercurrent
u -iiixioty in her heart—"answer me I
•Mayn't 1 go to Italy as Stuart Harland's
wife?"
"Good heavens!"
Mrs. Dunelle started to her foot, pale
and trembling like a leaf.
"Stuart Harland I A poor artist. Oh,
Lucia, this is madness 1"
".Mamma, I love him!"
"Madness-madness I" repeated the
mother brokenly. "Lucia, I would
rather seo you dead, Yon aro poor
enough now."
"Mamma"—the girl's faco was grave
and resoluto—"I cannot endure the
thought of giving you pain, but I do not
love Mark Dysurl, and I have given my
whole heart to Stuart Harland, and can
nrver marry any one else."
} is. Denello was wringing her hands
in I titter -sorrow. Neither ol them oh-
so ve I thu tall, dork figure in tho ovor*
crown groun.ls without, lying at full
hu th upon tho garden seat, hia hat
drawn over his eyes.
A man of middle age, with dark-
brown hair and beard just touched with
g n y, keen gray eyes, and severe ex-
pivtsion. Tlie two women went on with
the discussion, and never dreamed of
the listener without.
"1 would not willingly grlovo or cross
yon, Lucia," Mrs. Denello was saying
sadly, "but I shall never give my consent."
"Then" — rebelllonsly — "wo shall
either have to marry without it, or—
forgive me, mamma"—with a littlo cry
of [tain at sight of her mother's distress.
"No, I would never do that. Uut I
would bo doomed to a life of loneliness
and tinhappiness; and I know that that
would mako you unhappy, too."
Mrs. Denello mado no reply, and
Lucia went on with tho task beforo her.
All day long she worked; cooking, ironing, and mending for the noisy, mischievous six, lilted the timo of overflowing. But Lucia, pale nud patient, worked
away, and nothing was loft undone.
When tho sun had set and twilight
had fallen over tho green earth liko a
benediction, when tho last younrato?
was tucked away in his littlo bod, then
Lucia was at liberty. Sho throw a fleecy
white wrap about her shoulders, and
wont out into the dusky grounds,
A littlo later Stuart Harland joined
her. Tall and graceful was tho young
artist, with clear-cut features, large,
luminous dark oyes, nnd a dark mustache; a face to attract any woman.
And Lucia knew how good and truo he
was, and hor whole heart was in tho
keeping of this man, whoso only fault
was poverty.
In golden silence the two paced on
together down tho tangled garden path.
At last Stuart Harland turned, and his
dark eyes met Lucia's with a silent
question in their depths. She shook her
golden head slowly, sadly.
"It is useless, sweetheart," she said
softly. "I have spoken to mother.
I wisbod to prepar her for your intended
interview to-morrow; but*, Stuart, it is
quite useless—quite. Sho will never
consent to our marriage; and—I cannot
blame her. poor little motherl Itwould
be separation for us both, perhaps forever. Oh, Stuart, Stuart!"—tho golden
head wont down upon his shoulder, aud
the sweet voice broke into sobs and
tears—"I cannot glvo you up!"
"And yon shall not," he murmured
tenderly.   "We will wait, dear love."
"I shall be old and grey and ugly/'
sho was beginning.
Hut bo stooped and kissed the Bweot
red lips.
"You may be ai old as Methuselah,
and grey as a badger—ugly you nover
enn be under any circumstances, little
woman!—but you shall be my wife fust
the same.   I will never givo you up."
And so tholr troth was pledged anew;
and Stuart Harland went Lome through
tho silvery moonlight with a tender
smllo upon his lips, and his dark eyes
shining with a happy light.
"I wonder who this fellow can be of
whom Lucia told mo to-night," ho
queried, as he walked along. "It is a
new arrival here, who has purchased

A tall, dark form loomed up before

at Bight ot whom Stuart involuntarily
balled.
"Mr. Harland,Is It not?" began the
stranger, quietly.   "I would liko a few
ivord-* with you, sir,* if you please."
.Stuart bowed.
"As many as you liko, Mr, —"
"Dysart.   Mv name Is Mark Hyoart,
Stuart Harland, did you over hear that
namu before?"
"Never, to my knowledge, until tonight," the young man returned quietly.
"Can I serve you In any way, Mr.
Dysart?"
"Ves. I lovo Miss Lucia Denello* If
you were out of the way she might
learn to caro for me*; and I am sure
that onco my wifo sho would love mc,
for Lwould be so kind and tondor to
her that I could not fall to win hor in
time. Mr. Stuart Harland, I understand that you aro a struggling young
artist, poor and proud. Oh, you need
not get angry, I did not mean auy insult; I wiu* speaking for your good. I
will mnko you thla proposition; I agroo
lo pay all your oxponses to Italy, where
you can perfect, yourself in your art.
t will mako your unnio famous;.for, no
matter how lino an arttat you may be.
the world will novor bolievo ic until
some rich and influential man says so.
I will do all this for you; I will mako
you tho richest and moat famous artist
of the day upon one condition."
"And that?"
Stuart: Hartland'fl voice- WM trom-
blihg.: ,' ■*?
"is—that you resign all pretensions
to Lucia Denello's handi That you go
away and leave the coast clear. What
do yon say?"
Trembling like a leaf, pale as marble,
his great dark eyes blazing *****ith indignation, Stuart turned with uplifted
hand.
"Only your grey haire deter mo from
cbnstu'ing you. as you.deBerye!"—ho
ground tho words forth between his set
tooth. "Out of my path, Mark Dysa'rt,
or I shall forget myself, and striko you
down nt my loot!"
"Softly, softly, young man!" cried
tha ottier, lightly. "I meant no harm.
I was appealing to your worldly wisdom, but I seo Young man, givo me
your hand! I havo applied ft severe
test, mid I Und I was right in my beliof.
Como homo with mo, Stuart Harland.
I havo a story to toll you.;,"
» « * • e
Two days afterward Mrs, Donollo caw
upon Lucia's white forefinger a magnifl-
ieent diamond ring.
The rod blood rushed to the widow's
pah' eheek-i in a suddon flood.
Was Lucia going to bo sonsiblo, aftor
all?
"My doar"—a dubious glanco at tlio
ring—" I think you ought not to con-
coal anything from your own mother!
Is Hall'settled, Lucia?"
"Yi's, ma-iima—all settled: and I am
tho vory happiest girl alive.
And iho white arms went around
Mrs. DouL'ltoa neck, and Lucia's lips
wer-1 pressed against her mother's.
".Mamma, it is all so strange! I ran
scarcely believe it oven yet! But"—
she stopped short, blushing prettily—
"they aro coining!"
"'ihtiy" proved to bo -Stuart Harland
and Mr, Dysart.
Mrs. Denello looked profoundly surprised aa tho two men, arm-in-arm,
entered the cool, airy room where she
sat.
"My dear Mrs. Denelle," began Mark
Dysart, at onco, "I have wonderful
news to toll you! This young mau
hem, Mr. Stuart Harland. Is my dead
sister's only child, and, being next of
kin, ho will bo sole heir to my. possessions. I havo proved his worth. I
tempted hiin with everything that tho
human heart can crave—riches, fame,
power—it he Would relinquish huoUuiu

spurned my overy offer, and would
have punished mo for my audacitv had
I not been au old man. Mra. Denelle,
this lias all been a plot of mine from
the very first. 1 wanted to prove .Stuart
Harland's worth, I desired . to make
sure thnt ho was tho noble, honorable,
upright man that, Lucia believed him
to be—a man who cannot bo bought.
I oin satisfied. The wedding shall como
off aa soon as you are ready. I have
made a deed which gives Beechwbod
to Stuurt Harland, and the young people
can niovo there as soon as tho wedding
is over. He has been tried, as gold is
tested, by firo, and he is worth v even of
Lucia. What higher praise than that?
May they bo happy for many years together."
Aud they all said "Amen.'1

Notwithstanding the groat opposition to the Southern Railway project
the arrangements for its construction
are proceeding steadily. Tho contract
for some 50,000 ties has been lot ancl
a large number of men aro now employed cutting them. Mv. Loamy will
commence tn build tho half mile of
crib-work, ubovo tlio liatcliery, in it
few weeks, anil the g.-adingof the lino
will be got under way as boon ns thu
days lengthen; Fivo hundred men
nro engage*.! to boyin work on Jan. 3rd
if tlio weather will permit. Tho
Southern still lives, and work will be
proceeded with according to promise
notwithstanding all the injunction-,
which have, or may be, obtained.
A Pad Slate or Affairs.
Tho morality of Victoria must bo
getting veiy low indeed. Tho papers
an- continually publishing accounts of
disgraceful occurrences in bagnios and
in the streets, even tn daylight, and
now the Colonist chronicles the following:— "A gentleman on whose hands
time lay heavily amused himself yesterday afternoon by counting 37 drunks
passing n given point on Store street
m half an hour. They embraced almost every nationality and illustrated
every degreo of intoxication, though
all retained Benao enough to behave."
It is safe to say no city in the Dominion of Canada could show such a record, and unless steps nro tnken to
remedy the many existing evils in the
capital city, ita once fair name will bo
irrecoverably lost.
Tho result of the football match at
Vancouver on Saturday proves very
conclusively that whilo (he Westminster club has been resting quietly
on the honors it won ao easily, the
Vancouver club has been steadily
practicing and is now in trim to meet
any club in the province on equal footing. From being the worst playing
club two months ago it is now probable
tbe best, while the exact reverse of
theso conditions is the caae with Westminster. The return match with Vancouver will be played on Saturday
next and if Westminster expects to win
it must have at least two practices
during this woek. Westminster does
uot wish to Iobo the honors it has gained, and the football club, which has
done so well in the past, is expeoted to
maintain the samo leading place in the
future.
l'vangelht Cowboy.
Interest in the case of Rev. G. W.
Rasuro hns not at aU abated, and continues to be a prevailing topic of conversation on the streets and elsewhere
in the city. On Friday night tho
Baptist church was crowded, and a
large number was unable to obtain admittance, Mr. Rasuro waxed warm
in his own defence, and expressed hia
determination to stay right with them
nnd see it through. The matter, however, has evidently preyed upon his
mind, and sflectod him to no small degree. Saturday morning he was quite
out of eorls physicially, and lose night
was not at tho meeting. Rev. W.
Kennedy at tho close announced ns
the cause that Mr. Rasuro was seriously ill. Mr, Chamberlain, a co-worker
with the Cowboy Evangelist nt Windsor, Out., in religious revival, arrived

The work en the mattrasaes at the
sandheads will be relinquished for
somo time, the snag-boat Sampson
being needed on other work. The
suet-ess of the experiment of confining
the river flow to one channel has proved very gratifying, there being 17 ft. of
water at tho lowest tide, which with
10 ft. additional at high tide gives a
sufficient depth of water to allow any
vessel now plying to Pacific coast
porM to enter the river. This
must put aside any doubt thero mny
have been, as to the possibility of
ocean-going vessels orossing the sandheads at all seasons of the -/ear, and a
feeling uf confidence will stimulate the
lioynl City Planing Mills Co., Roas,
McLaren & Co., and others now engaged in the oxport trade upon the
river. Mr. Hill, C.E., is to be congratulated upon the success of the
work carried out under his superintendence.

Banted In EMg*-.
An occurence took placo on Saturday night, whioh, though it cannot
be commended, shows the intense popular feeling the citizens of Westminster
bear towards the Southern Railway
project. It was the burning in effigy
of four prominent injunctors. These
gentlemen are supposed by the general
public to be endeavoring to prevent
tho construction of the railway, nnd
tho popular manifestation againat them
on Saturday night was probably intended to bIiow that such a course was
not favored by the great majority of
the citizens of Now Westminster, Tho
eltigics were pelted with rotten eggs
and finally burned. Fully 2000 peoplo
were present and almost evoryono of
these seonied to bo friendly towards
tho umiiifostnlioii.

The Katie Putnam Company arrived
from Victoria yesterday and will bo at
Herring's Opera Houso to-night. Miss
Putnam is a prime favorite in America
from Bangor, Maine, to Sun Francisco,
nud it is aaid that the moro announcement of her name is enough to (ill nny
theatre in the United Status, "Dud's
Girl," a romantic comedy-drama, by
E. J. Swart--., in which Miss Putnam
will appear to-night, is n charming
dramatic play of which tho Helena
Montana Daily Record saya:—■' 'Dad's
Girl' is n pretty play," was thu expression heard last evening as the immense
audience emerged from Ming's opera
houso, nf tor witnessing the piny named
as above, as produced by the Katie
Putnam Company. And indeed it iB a
pretty play, far excelling any heretofore rendered by the company and
well merits its repetition as proposed
to-night. Its situations are extremely
touching, tho passages from the humorous to tho pathetic, being bo striking
aa to imbue the audience with a feeling
essential, leading to the success of the
play. Sweet Katie Putnam was at her
best, and as for the remainder of the
company, they were not one whit be
hind in sharing the honors of the star,
"Dad's Girl" is a play that must bo
seen to be appreciated; its surprise,
episodes and mountings beiug such as
to almost preclude description.
