A recent writer says that those
nations which are given to the
cultivation of vocal music are strong
nnd vigorous, with broad, expansive
chests. Vocal music is a good lui^
exercise; it increases expansion of
the lung tissue* it calls into action
the entire lun-j, thus making the
apices less likely to develop organic
disease,
A bill has been introduced in
Pennsylvania to make "treating" a
criminal offence, punishable by a
line of from fifty to a hundred dollars. Tf the man who wants to take
1 flrinlt could do so without inviting
vnryborty in Llio vicinity to join
!iim, nr.tl then removing the obligation by accepting a similar courtesy at tho expense of eaeh individual present, the drinking habit
would be enormously reduced of
half its torrors.
It is announoed that the church
of St. Pierre, in Geneva, where
Calvin preached, is in need of
extensive repairs. The northern
tower must be entirely rebuilt, and
the principal facade must be considerably altered* the interior also
will require to be restored. The
lowest estimate for these works is
set down at 5,000,000 f.; but the
cost will probably exceed this sum,
A society has been formed at
Geneva to raise the necessary funds.
It must be regretted that Mr.
Mills of Annapolis should hare committed himself to the buffoonery of
introducing inthe houso of commons
a bill for the annexation to Canada
of the New England States. Of
course suoh a piece of impertinence
and bud taste is universally scouted,
but it is disreputable that any member of the Canadian parliament
should emulate the bad examples in
that line of American politicians,
which have created so much disgust
in Canada. It might have been
thought that the very fact of our
having been the mark of such an
impertinence would have sufficed
to deter any Canadian legislator
from imitating it, at a time moreover, when it iB most desirable to
cultivate courtesty and friendly relations.—Halifax Critic
In a lecture on "Pygmy Races of
Men" Professor Flower referred to
the curious fact that the tallest and
shortest races in Europe are respectively the Norwegians and Lups,
living in almost the same region.
In Africa, also, tho diminutive
Bushman and the tallest race of the
country, the Kaffirs, are close neighbors. The facts indicate that climate, soil, and other physical conditions havo but small influence on
human staure, and suggests tho
question whether it is due to Bociijl
or moral ngency. The comparative
history of tho Lips and Norwegians
indicates that it may be so. The
Vikings wero always a fighting race;
the Laps certainly are, and bo far as
we know, always have been, an
exceptionally peaceful people, and
the Esquimaux, with whom they
ure so nearly connected, are tho
same. The Laps live on the snow-
fields of Norway, and the Esquimaux
on the bitterest parts of the Arctic
regions, just tho places to which tho
weakest would W drivan by coii-
querors who had appropriated the
moro fertile regions. Tlie eonsequent
hardship and semi-starvation would
probably stunt the growth of the
weaker people, while, on the other
hand, the conquering warlike race,
in the days of hand-to-hand fighting
with outsiders, and struggling for
chieftainship, would continually kill
ofl the feeble and short-armed, and
multiply the big men by the "survival of tho fittest" for such conditions.

San Francisco, Maroh 29.—It is
■aid that tho late southeasterly storms
have materially affected .the entrance

at best is difficult of access, and the
channel has been rendered more ao by
the fhualing caused by the long and
continued southeasterly seas. The

blow materially, and it is thought repairs will cost the government at least
$5,000.

WILL NOT AFFECT VS.
Ottawa, March 29.-In the commons last night Sir John Macdonald
said the government had not been
officially notified concerning the
Behring's Sea proclamation. He
thought it had been issued for the purpose of warning Americans, and did
not affect any Oanadian interest.
DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, March 28.— In the house
of commons thia evening Colonel Prior
aaked whether the government had received any official notification from the
government of the United States in
regard to the proclamation issued by
President Harrison closing Behring a
Sea to nil but American vessels. If so
whether the government had entered
its earnest protest against such action
ou the part of tho United States. Sir
Juhu Macdonald icnlied in tho negative to both questions. He read a
despatch from Washington to the
effect that the enactment of congress
assented to on March 21st last, provided for the issue of a proclamation
annually warning American fishermen
as well aa other fishermen from lishing
in Behring's Sea, The proclamation
as he understood it did not dispose of
the question as to what constituted
the limits to Behring's Sea.
In the senate to-day Hon. G. A.
Kirkpatnck'a bill for reciprocity in

and held tne houae for an hour. Col.
O'Brien's amendment camo to grief,
thoso voting for it as follows: Messrs.
Barron, Bell, Charlton, Cockburn,
Dension. Macdonald, (Huron), McCarthy, MoNeil, O'Brien, Scriver,
Sutherland, Tyrwhttt and Wallace
There were only 14 members absent.

TESTINO THE  ACT.
Washington, March 28.—The supreme court will take up to-morrow
the caso of the Chinaman, Chre Chan
Ping, appellant, versus the United
States. Thia case involves the constitutionality of the Scott Exclusion
act, approved on December 1st, 1888.
Ohio Chan Ping, who was a laborer, on
hia departuro from the United Statea
on June 2nd, 1888, received from the
collector at San Francisco a return certificate as provided for in the law of
Juno 2nd, 1887. On his return on
October 7th, 1880, he was refused admittance to this countiy on the ground
that under the Scott law his certificate
had become void. Ex-Governor
Uoudley, of Ohio, and Jamei C. Carter, of New York, will appear for the
appelent to-morrow, and Solicitor General Jenks for the United States,
while John F. Swift, S, M. White and
Attorney-General Johnson, of tho

Children Cryfor Pitchert Castoria
Harvey, the triple murderer, boa ar-
rivedatGuelphfromToronto. The train
ran past the station, where many
thousands of people had congregated,
to the crossing, near the police itation,
and Harvey was hurried thither. During the inquest on Wednesday the
prisoner maintained a dogged silence
and never lifted his eyes from the
floor. He refuses nourishment and
tobacco, although he was an inveterate
smoker. The murderer was for lome
time in the employ of E, R. Olarkaon,
Toronto, prior to going to Guelph.
The chief of police on going to the
house found everything as silent as the
grave. Ho succeeded in raising a
back window and setting inside. The
chief then passed through the kitchen
and dining and sitting rooms, looked
iuto the parlor and then went upstairs, where the first object he saw
was Harvey's fair-haired and lovely
daughter of 12 or 13 years, lying on
the floor of tho front bed-room with
her head in a pool of blood. A bloody
hole in the head told tho means by
which she had met hor death. The
chief raised the dead child's head from
its position and laid it on a pillow. He
then passed through the upper hall
and in the back bed-room found Harvey's oldest daughter lying beside the
bed, also dead. Sbe was a young
woman and a general favorite with all
who knew her. The officer now became thoroughly horrified. He went
down stairs and in a clothes room off
the kitchen he found Mn. Harvey,
stretched at full length, with a similar
bullet wound. Further search through
the house revealed nothing more, and
no traces was found of the author of
the dreadful triple niurder. Harvey
went to the Central School at about
11 o'olook Tuesday morning and took
hii youngest daughter home. He waa
seen driving towards the station, and
it was thought he had taken the train
for Toronto, and the authorities there
were notified. A detective found him
the same evening itanding on a street
corner in that city and he wu placed
in confinement, On his person was
found a five-chambered revolver with
three empty and two loaded chambers.

It is to be hoped that immediate
and decided notion will be taken by
the 'Dominion authorities in tlio
matter thut lias been brought to
thoir notice by tho board of trade
and city council of this city with
respect to the necessity for a hundred foot draw spun in tlie Mission
bridge, instead of only sixty feet, as
contemplated, and under construction even, by the O.P.U. This is a
matter of the greutesfc importance
to tins city and district, us we have
before shown, and as l In- resolutions
on the subject have pointed out.
The most important settlements on
the river, abovo tin's city, are
situated beyond the proposed bridge,
and for more than fifty miles above
that point the river is navigable
for the largest river steamers. A
large steamboat traffic, and one that
is increasing notwithstanding the
railway, is carried on between tins
city nnd settlements above the Mission principally, and this traffic must
not be interfered with by any artificial and gratuitous obstruction such
as the proposed narrow spnn would
interpose. As was pointed out by
Mr. Ladner in a motion before the
legislature on tlie subject, on Wednesday, some of the steamers plying
on the river being of forty feet
beam, nnd the current at the Mission being very strong, (we might
add particularly so during the month
or six weeks freshet season in early
summer), sixty feet of a draw span
is altogether too narrow for safe or
practicable navigation, and a hundred foot span should be insisted on.
So far as the C.P.R. is concerned,
it might not naturally be averse to
putting a bar to the navigation of
the river, so as to turn ell the traffic
into its own hands and do away
with steamboat competition; but, we
repeat, this must not be allowed.
The Frasor Eiver, us a noble natural
ohannel for commerce, was hero
before the C.P.R., and must be preserved inviolate from all unnecessary
nnd serious obstructions. As tlie
construction of tho O.P.R. bridge is
being proceeded with according to
the original design, it may be desirable, if not necessay, to procure an
injunction against the work, pending
the action of the minister of murine.
At all hazards, the sixty-foot span
as designed, must not be allowed to
be completed as part of the bridge.
As was anticipated, Ool. O'Brien's
motion in the Dominion house, urging the disallowance of the "Jesuits'
Estates Act," met with scant support, according to our despatches to-
. day, the resolution being defeated
this morning by a vote of 188 to 13,
leading Conservatives and Liberals
being at one on tho question. This
vote affirms nothing except that, in
the opinion of the vast majority of
tho Dominion parliament, the
Quebec legislation in the Jesuits'
matter was strictly iutra vires; that
in appropriating the large sum ho
did to tho Jesuits, subject to the
approval of the Pope, Premier
Mercier kept within provincial
rights and powers, and did not come
under the sweep of the federal veto.
How far political expendiency
influenced the opinions of members
on both sides of the house can only
be guessed at, but the question has
been settled on the only basis that
was possible before tho Dominion
house, that is, on the constitutional
issue of provincial rights. The
Grits or Liberals were quite consistent with their record as upholders
of provincial rights in voting as they
did; Sir John Macdonald and his
administration not quito so consistent, on the other hand, as they
havo framed n reputation for quashing provincial legislation, on grounds
good, bad and indifferent, The
obviousness of tho case from a constitutional standpoint, and a tincture
of political expediency, propnbly
deoided iho Conservatives in voting
against disallowance in this instance.
The proper place, of course, to have
discussed the morality of the
"Jesuits' Estates Act" was before the Quebec legislature, when
the measure was introduced; but
superior numbers, chicanery, and
"politics" wnn the day, and the forlorn minority hardly "squeaked."
It is not likely that agitation on the
question will cease with the verdict,
of the Dominion parliament; but,
on the other hand, greater watchfulness will be inspired in the future as
a result of the '.'Jesuits' Estates Act"
and the light thrown upon the subject by so much publio discussion.
The new law of the Stato of New
York for the execution of criminals
. by electricity in place of hanging is
now in forae/Md the state authorities are engaged in arranging the
details of the electrical apparatus
that is to be officially employed.
The New York fferald gives the following particulars of some experiments lately made in connection
with the subject i Half a dozen gentlemen Joarned in the sciences of
electricity and sui-gery had been"
deputed by state authority to visit
Mr. Thomas A. Edison's famous
laboratory at Llewellyn Park,
Orange, N.Y., und there experiment
on various lower animals, with the
object of ascertaining at what point
of a human body tho electrical current can most efficaciously be applied
in order to secure instantaneous
death without burning or disfiguring
the flesh of the victim. Several unlucky dogs and calves and one
equine quadruped were, on the 12th
inst,, sacrificed to science in this
manner, and the results attained
wore regarded as thoroughly satisfactory and as demonstrating conclusively tho utility and desirability
of tho alternating current as a means
of producing sudden and painless
death, whether applied nt the head,
tho arms, feet, side, spine or any
other point of the body. A large
Newfoundland dog was the first victim. V nconscious of its doom, the
poor animal willingly submitted to
the placing in position of tho fatal
wires, the end of one being fastened
to its right forepnw, while the other
was placed in proximity to its brain.
Thon the strength of the currant
was measured. All being ready, the
circuit was completed, and iu an incredibly short space of time the dog
was dead. It had taken 600 volts
of electricity and sixteen seconds of
timo to dispatch him. A calf was
Uio next subject. It was earned,
kicking lustily, into tho spacious
operating room and held while tho
deadly wires were arranged, this
time at the base of the brain and
near the heart. In fifteen seconds
from the completion of lhe circuit
the victim was veal. A big mongrel
dog, which had been selected for the
succeeding sacrifice, seemed some
what suspicious of the assemblage
and declined to approach the wires.
He was dragged into position and
stood shivering as if cognizant of his
rapidly approaching fate. A wire j
was affixed to his hind leg, another |
placed over his heart, and in less
time than it takes to tell it the poor
beast's anticipatory terrors were
over. It was decided to oiler up tho
horse next, and he was accordingly
led in and prepare;! for the slaughter.
He looked a despondent, played-out
sort of quadruped, and if he knew
what awaited him, he certainly did
not object. The same wires, several
hundred volts and a few fleeting
seconds led to his utterly painless
demise, and his carcass was dragged
aside to make room for more calves
and canines. Two medium-sized
mongrels died for science, and three
more innocent calves wero butchered
in a far more expeditious manner
than thnt in vogue at the shambles.
By that time tho experimenting
party had solved any doubts that
may have previously existed in their
minds regarding the certainty of
quick death by the alternating cur-
ent, and had gathered sufficient
material upon which to base an
opinion as to the best points for application of the current. So they
abandoned the roles of executioners
and turned their faces homeward.
Mr. Harold P. Brown and Mr. A.
E. Kennelly said the results attained
could not have been more satisfactory, but of course, not having yet
discussed the subject, they could not
publicly advance an opinion on tho
greater eligibility of one portion of
the body than another for the application of the current, Death, painless and speedy, had resulted in
every instance. The force of the
current used varied from five hundred to one thousand volts, alternating from two hundred and eighty
to three hundred per second, thus
emphatically disproving the contention advanced by certain advocates
of the continuous current that one
thousand volts of the alternating
current would prove comparatively
harmless, and that considerably over
one thousand volts would be necessary to insure death. The time occupied had varied from ten seconds
in the case of one dog to twenty-five
seconds. As for the bodies of the
slain, they so completely escaped
disfigurement that the veal was perfectly suitable for human food, und
it was returned to the butcher who
had brought the calves to tbe laboratory.

In evory city there are individual
examples of mon whose connections
with its business pursuit.**, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
nnd untiring industry, make them
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have we
in the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, through all tho vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trado, maintained the oven tenor of his way.
His transactions have increased
yoar by year, and tho circle of his
customers and patrons gradually
widening and his firm oxtending until he now controls a business unexcelled by any similar establishment in British Oolumbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged uud appointed. All this space is filled
with a completo and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oiis, glussM-nrc,
crock ory ware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, house furnishings,
iron pipe and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and docs overy variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
house in tho trade which carries a
more completo stock or whose facilities surpass thoso of this establishment for supplying tho trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of timo this gentleman'
has been in business and the success he has attained aro better
recommendations than the loudest
praise we could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yet becomo acquainted with tins firm, that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation for fair and honorable dealing.

I'm iiloai'd with so littlo,
My wants aro so few,
Tlmt earth seems a pasture
Whero all thlags aro new,
I feed on the blossoms
That wolcome the spring.
As well as the fruitage
That summer will bring;
I revel in autumn,
Tbat ripens tho year,
And even the winter .
Affords me some cheer.
I'm plcas'd with the shining
Of night's sliver moon,
As woll as the glory
Whioh robes golden noon,
The light or tho darkness
To mo is tho same,
For eaoh has a beauty
To which I lay claim;
I wulco In tho morning
With thanks to the night
For winging mo safely
Through Dreamland's delight.
Tm plcas'd with my brother
(rm spooking or mnn),
He's loving or hating   ,
As I choose to scan
His acting or speaking, .
For olthor has good .
That outweighs tho badness
That's nobody's food;

Asleep or awake,
Tho world contains treasure
Of whioh I partake.

THE M0B0CC0 MUDDLE.
Unole Sam's Trouble with Bultan
Sldl Muloy Hassan.
Imprisonment of a Man Claiming American
Protection—Abii-n-s oftho Consular Protection System Now in Force lu
Mohammedan Countries.
Our trouble with. Morocco grows out of
tlio manifold abuses of tho conaular protection system in Mohomedau countries, says
Ihu Ht. Louis Itepubttcan. Sidi Mulal (sometimes written Muloy) Hassan; tho Sultan
of Fez, Morocco, Tafflot and Sue, is a vory
dospotio mlar. Born In 1831, ho succeeded
to tho t-hvono September 20, 1878, on tho
death of Sidl Mulal Mohomet, and Ib tho
thirty-fifth ruler in descent from All, tho
unclo and son-in-law of   Mohoracd,   the
' prophet. Aftor ascending tho throno, ho
mado himself secure in his seat hy killing
off his brothers and nearest relatives generally in tho old historic way, still followed
in some countries. Ho is a firm believer in
tho divine right idea, and takes no Btook
whatever In stato constitutions, legislative
enactments and such things. If ho wants a
piece of property belonging to ono of his
subjects, ho takes it and pays for it, or not,
as ho chooBos, and if tho poor, follow growls
about it ho is locked up or gotten rid of in perhaps n still more effective manner. His subjects, of courso, know this and the richer
ones hido their wealth, or as much as they
ean, und endeavor to securo the protection
of a foreign Consul by entering into partnership with somo foreign merchant enjoying consular protection. Thus it Ib that
many of the merchants of Tangier act as
resident agents of foreign houses, or elso
aro under tho protection of foreign Consuls,
oach of whom ia entitled by law or treaty to
two or throe proteges, or cliouts among tno
native subjects, whoso goods aro thus protected from seizure. AU through Morocco—
ai Tangier, Totuan, El Arrish, Rabat', Assa-
mor and Mogador—there aro European Consuls, Vice-Consuls, or Consular agents,
who uot only protect born Europeans, but
extend consular protection, iu a somewhat
lax manner, to natives who can mako out
uny kind of a case that they are of
European descent, or have somo sort of
connection with tbo Wost. But this protection given these protected citizens has been
flagrantly and viciously abused, and the
conference at Madrid ia 1680 met for tho
purposo of reforming tho abuses that had
gathered round the system. Tho abuses to
which tho Moorish Government then called
attention were, however, not only not remedied, but havo sinco thon, Increased,
and a few years ago an American
writer said: "They havo now reached a
point at which bonost opinion demands on
oil sides the total abolition of the protective
system, Ono of its inherent evils is that
the justico or injustice of tho administration depends almost entirely upon tho will
of individuals. It was flrst instituted as a
guaranteo againBt tho arbitrary action of
Moorish law, but it has become, as a matter
of foot, scarcely less arbitrary. Protected
subjects are removed from tho jurisdiction
of tho nativo courts, thoy aro exempted
from military service and fiom almost all
direct taxation, and when money is owed to
thom thoir claims aro enforced by tho protecting power. Thoy enjoy, therefore, a
position which ie vory superior to that of
other subjects of tho Bultan, and it is within
tho powor of Ministers and Consuls to
.-runt protection with tho stroke of a pen.
Tho conditions under which this may be
done aro of courso kid down by treaty, but
thoy aro not always observed. These arc,
yory briefly stated, tho grounds both of geneml abuse and of tho Sultan's complaint
that his subjects are taken from him and
encouraged to defy his authority. ' American administration hore has not boon without reproach, and tho action of tho nowly-
ii.ipointcd American Consul (Mr. Lewis)
hns, thoreforo, attracted tho mora interest,''
Tho samo writer goes on to say; "If facts
aro looked Into as they sro, it must be ad-
. mit ted that foreign officials in Morocco havo
at various times used their public powers
for tho f urthoranco of private interests. I
have hoard prices mentioned which varied
from £200 to half a dollar, and a Hebrew
who described tho'system to mo was apparently unconscious, when ho namod a rogtu
lar tariff for tho consular stamp, that ho
wna speaking of a dishonest transaction.
The powers of protection which aro illegal*
ly obtained aro as illegally exercised. Thoy
nro mado tho warrant not only of resistance
to nativo authority, but of overy sort of
tyranny ovor unprotected natives, who, in
' tho interior especially, havo no appeal. A
common practice is te extort money by
making false charges and accepting a bribe
to lot thom drop. * * * Again, no law
prevents a protected nativo from going into
trade partnership with an unprotected nativo who is willing enough to givo half his
prollts for tho benefit of Uio protege's
namo. If an attempt is mado to collect tax-
SB from tho unprotootod mnmbnr of thu
firm, tho protected mombor complains that
his interests aro touched, and tho authorities of tho Sultan aro powot loss. Thero Is
another crying Injustice in connootion with
tho system. Tho Sultan Is rospousfclo that
nil claims mado against unprotected natives
shall bo paid. Tho result la directly to put
him lu the positionof goingsocurlty toovery
bankrupt ln tho kingdom, and tho effect
upon erodit may bo Imagined. All national
restrictions aro removed from tho dealings
of usurious Jews, who use tho foreign Ministers to collect their debts. Indirectly this
is tho causo of human sufferings inflicted
upon tho unfortunate natives. When tho
fjultnn has paid tho debts of any individual
he has to recover the money as best bo can.
Vim..! families aro Imprisoned and loaded
with fetters, the lash and tho dungeon play
tholr part, Innocent and guilty suffer together until, somehow, means of paying the
debt aro scraped up."
That Mr. Lewis, our Consul-General,
found upon entering upon his duties, that
tho consular protective system had been
grossly abused, seems probaolo from his
announcement aftor his arrival in Tangier
that "all proteetion papors granted prior to
this data aro hereby cancelled and annulled,
nnd lhat in the fuluro ihe protection of this
consulate wiU not be extended lo any person who does not produce proper and satis-
factory proof of his right to protection and
tho necessity for tho safety of his property."
,Ipn PerdicariBof that country said throe
yoars agoi "Thore aro oniy throo nativo-
born Americans residing In Morocco that
are not connected with tho legation or tha
consulates, yot thero aro moro than ono
hundred and fifty nativo Hebrews and
Moors who enjoy tho protection of the
United States flag." Thoso latter, Mr. Por-
dlcaris went on to say, claimed debts from
unprotected natives to tho amount of WOO,
000, and, in response to the demands of the
American proteges, "gangs of men, chained
together liko wild beasts,, have boon
marched through the country to endure tiio
horrors of imprisonment In tho totid-kin-
geom- of Moquinez.''
'Shortly after Consul Lewis' arrival at
Tangier, ho learned that In the district of
Laraicha a number of prisoners were con-
lined on American claims for debt, some
neing in chains. Ho notified the Pusba of
tho district that imprisonment for dobt was
not allowed in the United States and ho
aBked that all prisoners hold Ior thut cause
on American claims bo released. Tho request not boing granted, Mr. Lewis sent au
attache of his oflice to tho district to make
a personal investigation of the matter. Tho
official report to our Government says:
"Hank injustice was disclosed; it was
proved that tho claims were in a groatnum-
bor of cases urged on tho namo of a Hebrew
named Reuben Fcrgemann, who had no
right to American protection. Mr. Lowls
informed tho Pasha that the man was not
an American protege. Tbo manner in
which ho hnd boen acting under Iho ongis of
tho United States may bo Inferred from tho
fact that tbo instant the protection was
withdrawn ho was seized by tho Moorish
authorltioB and sent In irons to Tangier.
For Bixtcon yoars he had oppressed tho district in which ho lived, using his illegal
certificate as a warrant of extortion and
tyrnnny."
How Mr. Forgomann obtained his protection papers was not stated, but traffic iu
illegal passports is uot on uncommon thing.
During tho last Russo-TurklBh war a largo
number of Roumanians avoided military
sorvico by showing certificates of American citizenship issued without authority by
a Roumanian vice-consular agent, at bo
many dollars n pieco.
Tho treaty of Madrid gave tho right to
wholesale merchant-- to protect two nativo
brokers hi evory port or- town with whicli
thoy traded, and it Ib ono of those proteges, u Moorish Jow named Rabat, whom
tho Sultuu has refused to release from imprisonment at the demand of Consul Lowia.
Tho man, it is claimed, was cast into prison
on somo frlvolouB pretext by the nativo
Governor of tho place. A troaty between
tho United States and Morocco, • similar to
th03O existing betweou all European Governments and Mahommcdau countries,
provides that" disputes botween citizens of
tho United States and natives, or between
persons under the protection of citizens of
tho United Statos and natives, shall bo
tried before tho Consul of the United
States."
And it Is undor this troaty that Consul
Lewis claims jurisdiction in tbe matter.
The reports of tho troublo state that the
Sultan in his refusal to release Rabat is
backed "by the Spanish officials, who aro
jealous of United Statos Influence in
Morocco. He Ib assured that the United
States Ib a power without any foreign policy, and ono that has no navy to back up its
demands or sustain its dignity. Thoro is,
therefore, no terror In tho small show of
force mado by tho Enterprise. Lewis is
treated with contempt. Spain has a large
comparative interest In Morocco that looks
eventually to the conquest by diplomacy
rather than force, or by a combination of
tho two, of this ancient African State. Already Spain owns several islands on tho
Mediterranean coast and forts ou tho mainland. Sho would liko the opportunity of
giving aid to the Sultan in opposing the demands of the United States if insisted upon,
andthuB gain a stronger foothold in tho
country."
Although sadly behind the ago In most
things, Sultan Mulai is thoroughly civilized
in tho science of war. His infantry numbers about 40,000 men armed and woll
drilled in tho use of tho most improved
broech-loadors; hia cavalry carry Winchesters and several Krupp guns are to be
found in bis artillery.
GREEN  GEORGIA GIRLS.
How They Acted Whon Thoy Saw » Locomotivo for the First Time.
A few days ago, in tlio new town of
Rochollo on tho AraorlcuB, Preston &Lump-
Irin, a farmer walked up to the station,
leading a young Bteor by a rope uttnohod to
his horns, whleh ntonr was drawing a two-
wheel cart, and in tho cart sat an old lady
and two buxom young girls. They, tho
girls, says tho Americus (Ga.) .Republican,
had novor beforo seen a railroad, and hud
como down on tho quiet Sabbath morn to
see tho monster for the first time.
After driving the steer and cart ovor tho
road, tho old man drove up bytho side of the
track a few foot and halted. Just thon tho
whistle of tho euglno wus heard as it approached tho station, and tho rumbling
sound was heard for the flrst time by tho
two girls. Thoy both jumped up as the
steaming, shrieking engine camo rushlug
into viow, while Buck threw up his head
and began to back.
The oldman yelled: " Whoa, Buck I" while
the old woman said: "Sot still, Victoria
ElizuLoth, you an' Josephine Boarncrgus, it
ain't er gwino tor hurt yor. Mo an' yer pap
has rid on keora," and sho caught hold of
the dress of each ono; but tho engine gavo
another shriek, and seined to be dashing
straight on thom. Both girls jumped out,
ono on either sido of tho wagon, while Buck
gave a snort and started off at full
tilt. Pap held on to tho ropo and wns jerked
along at tlio rate of twenty miles an hour,
hollering: " Whoa, Buck, yor dern fool, it
won't hurt yor," whilo tho old wuman was
spilled, in a terribly mixed up stato with hor
clothing, calling first to tho one girl nml
then tho othor: "Victoria Elizabeth, yo'
nnd Josophine Boarncrgus stop there, Uut
thing can't run off the track."
But her entreaty wns in vain; tho girls
heard hor, but believed thoir salvation wan
in (light, and thoy ran about as fust ns
Buck, whilo tho old woman picked herself
up and started after " Victory." Josophine
was going at lightning. speed, and, approaching a fence, leaped ovor it liko ti deer,
but her dress caught on a stake, und thero
was a tearing sound, but uo stop-she went
flying over tbo field like a racer, whilo hor
skirts flow te tho breeze like a banner of
defiance.
The old woman with somo help caught
Victoria Elisabeth, whilo tho old man ran
Buck into tho cornor of a fence und soon
hod him securely tied; but Josephine had n
good half-mile start when tbe old man went
in pursuit. Baying: "Gosh, how that lectio
erector can hop. I'll hafter be mighty upry
to catch her in ten miles n- horo." And he
put out like a quarter horso. Tho old woman and two other parties wero holding
Victoria Elizabeth when tho train moved
off, but wo havo not hoard whether tbo old
man ever caught up with " Josephine Boar

Active Building Operallms.
A count of the residential buildings
now in courso of erection within tho
city limits, bIiokb tlmt 72 nro now bo-
iug constructed. Many of theso aro
almost completed and will de ready
for occupation within a week or two.
So great seems to be the demand for
houses that few buildings are completely finished beforo they nre occupied,
the painting and plastering in many
cases being performed after occupation.
It is said by tho first of May 125 new
houses will have been added to the
city since the beginning of the year.
A Fond Mother ©end.
Mary Jordan, n native of Dublin,
aged 80 years, died last evening. The
old lady will bo lung remembered as
tho persistent petitioner for pardon on
behalf of an unworthy son, who is now
serving a term in the penitentiary.
Her last moments were embittered by
tho thought of her unsuccessful efforts,
and the urgent appeals for a last look
on the face sho loved so well was the
only wish that could not bn gratified.
Mrs. Jordan has beon for many years
a recipient of tho charity of the good
sistors of St, Ann.— Standard of Wednesday.
A Ship's I'rcw Jailed,
Mr. Moresby, Governor of the Provincial gaol, returned from Vancouver
last night bringing with him seven of
the orew of the ship Princess Alexandra, now tying at Moodyville. It
appears tho prisoners had organized to
steal and dispose of the spare canvas
belonging to the ship, and wercsuccess-
ful in gotting away with a considerable
quantity. The doings of the crew
were discovered and Mr. Moresby
went over and searched the forecastle
with the result that stolen goods wore
found iu the dunnage of three men,
who were arrested and taken to Vancouver for trial. -Two were sentenced
to one month's imprisonment and tho
other to 3 months with hard labor.
The othor four got one month each for
for leaving the vessel without permission. __
Athletic Trnplilrs.
The return foot ball match, Mainland vs. Island, will not be played tomorrow and tho game will probably bo
postponed until Easter Monday.
While speaking of foot ball a word in
connection with tho lacrosse championship is not out of place. Two
cups wero presented last year for competition by Mr. H, Cole of the Greyhound Hotel, and this year tlio Al-
hambra Baloon cornea forward and offers a cup to be competed for by tho
lacrosse ctubs. It ia very generous on
the part of the donutora of theso gifts,
but it will eventually lead to a degeneration of our manly games unless
thoy are kept free and separate from
all outside influonces. If tho general
public will not contribute to offer
trophies to bo competed for the games
can be played with just the same ardor
for the honor of tho little word "victory."

A Dublin Boy,
At the police court this morning a
strapping young Irishman, named
John O'Farrel, was arraigned on the
charge of boing drunk and disorderly
and kicking the police. Tho evidence
went to show that ho took possession
of a Weat End hotel and no one dared
attempt to put him out. Chief Pearce
was sent for and asked him to go along
quietly to tho lockup, but O'Farrel
said he was a ''Dublin tough," and no
policeman in this country could put
him under arrest. Pearce thought
different and took hold of the Dublin
youth, when a struggle ensued during
which the chief's helmet waa Binashed
into smithereens and he also received
Boveral severe kicks from his antagonist. O'Farrel was finally overcomo
and taken to tho lockup with a pair
of bracelets on. Capt. Pittendrigh
and Mr. McTieman, the presiding
magistrates, promptly sentenced iho
prisoner to two months' imprisonment
with hard labor, tho former remarking
that- they "could not allow the constables to be kioked about by drunken
blackguards." When tlm sentence
was pronounced O'Farrel turned to
aome friends, who wero In court, and
asked for a loan of money, which wus
refused. For a few seconds he indulged in a vigorous "boo-boo," but
quickly dried hia tears and Bworo he
would "lather" them when he got out.
TRIED 10   ESCAPE,
O'Farrel was taken from tho dock
and in company with Constables Carty
aud Smith started to cross to tho lockup. When the middle of tho road
was reached he surprised the constables by making a sudden bolt in the
direction of Clarkson atreet, whicli he
followed to-Mary and thonce along
Columbia atreet to Blackwood when:
he was recaptured opposite the Catholic churoh by Mr. Robt. McBroom.
Many people took part in the chaae,
and excitement ran high for a time.
To-morrow O'Farrel will be up again
on the more serious charge of attempt*
ing to escape from justice, and it is
probable ho will regret his rashness.
PROGRESS,
It is very important in this age of vast

Tho four masted steam schooner
Jeaiinio arrived at Nanaimo from
Prince William Sound on Tuesday.
She took on a supply of coal and left
yesterday fut San Francisco. The ob-
ject of the vessel's trip to Prince William Sound was tho establishment of a
cannery for the Pacific Steam Whaling Company of Sail Francisco. A
suitable location for tho purpose was
found iu Whitcomb Bay, und material and men were left at the place by
the steamer, and tho work of erecting
a suitable cannery and other buildings
was actively begun. Capt. Gage sayB
that it is a wild and broken country,
and galea ure frequent and often violent during tho winter season. The location selected for the canning establishment, the captain Bays, is oxcallent.
Tho Alaska Commercial Company had
Bet thoir eyos upon it, having at one
timo had a trading station there, and
wero about starting a cannery when
thoy wore forestalled by tho Pacifio
Steam Whaling Company. The company intend to send up a steam tug
and steam launch for servico at the
new canning establish ment. They
anticipated a big catch of salmon, and
all arrangements nre being rapidly
made to put up the fish on the moat
