NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Glouclicster Advertiser saya:
A luun wbo is owing us a little bill
said he would oall last week and
pay us if he was alive. He still
appears on the street, but as he
did not call, it is naturally supposed that lie is dead, and ia walking about to save funeral expenses.
Says an exchange: The actors
of tho United States ask that the
importation of foreign actors be
forbidden under the foreign labor
law. Their request granted, a perpetual injunction against the critics
will then be in order. The date of
closing the theatres, owing to lack
of patronage, will be in sight.,
An exchange says : "We" would
coinmond to the sawmill owners
whoare wrestling with the saw-
dust problem the action of Maine
roillmen, who ship large quantites
of that material for use instead of
sand in mortar, as well as for the
making of moulding and cornice
work. If some enterprising Oanadian would enter into the business
of the economic disposition of the
sawdust that accumulates around
the mills of the Dominion he would
reap a fortune as well ss incur the
blessing of all concerned in the fish-
An exchange says: When the
Kew York Legislature passed the
law abolishing hanging and providing that capital sentences should
bo curried out by means of electricity, a section of the Act prohibited newspapers from publishing
details of the exeoution. Whatever
may have justified the adoption of
tho electricity scheme for inflicting
the death penalty, there does not
appear to have been any reason for
the provision affecting the press.
Iu the first place it is found to
violate the lnw granting liberty to
the press. It would also tend to
minimize the deterrent effects of
executions by doing away with the
exposure and disgrace. The Now
York Legislature must have had in
mind the popularizing of this method
of departing life, so that a man
tired of existence would come to
the authorities and beg to be quietly
and respectably taken in htind and
done for.       	
This is the way they intend to
"do us up," according to the Chicago Tribune: Canada has now a
debt whose weight is almost crushing on its small population and
scant resources, but it still shows
no signs fa desire to reduce it.
It even seems to eye with complacency the prospect of an increase.
The Dominion government has just
ordered two large guns, that will
cost a quarter or half million, which
it proposes to plant somewhere on
itssencoastfor "defensive purposes."
What an utter waste of money
this isl What power, unless it be
tho United States, would ever
attack Canada 1 But if war were
to come between the two countries,
it would not help our northern
neighbor if its entire seacoast were
ringed around with 500 or 1,000-
pounders. If there were a fight—
which heaven forbid—we should
not go trifling around the mouth of
the St. Lawrence, nor should we
fritter away our energies as in tbe
war of 1812. In a month or less
from the declaration of hostilities
we should have Montreal and Winnipeg. The possession of thoso two
points would cut tho Dominion into
three pieces, and we could pick up
the fragments when wo got ready.
The Canadians would save money
by melting their cannon down for
' larea.
li. L. Stevenson, in the December
Scribuer't, has tho following, appropriate to the season: To look hack
upon the past year, and soo how
little we have striven and to what
small purpose; and how often we
have been cowardly nnd hung back,
or temerarious and rushed unwisely
in; and how overy day and all day
long we have transgressed tho law
of kindness;—it may seem a paradox, but in the bittornos of these
discoveries, a certain consolation
resides. Life is not designed to
minister to a man's vanity. He
goes upon his long businesa most of
the time with a hanging head, and
all the time like a blind child, Full
of reward and pleasure as it is—so
that to see the day break or the
moon rise, or to meet a friend, or to
hear the dinner-call when he is hungry, fills hiin with surprising joys—
this place is yet for him no Aiding
city. Friendships fall through,
health fails, weariness assails him;
year after year, he must thumb tho
hnrdly varying record of hii own
weakness and folly. It is a friendly process of detachment, When
the time comes that ho should go,
there need be few illusions left about
himself. "Here lies one who meant
well, tried a little, failed muoh :"—
surely that may be hia epitaph, of
which he need not to be ashamed.
Nor will he complain at the summons, whioh calls a defeated soldier
from the field : defeated, ay, if he
were Pali! or Marcus Aureliusl—
but if there is still one inch of fight
in his old spirit, undishonored.
Give him a march with his old
bones; there, out of the glorious sun-
colored earth, out of the day and
dust, and the eoatasy—thore goes
another Faithful Failure t

THK  I'Ol'K'K  SPEECH.
Rome. Deo. 26,--.The Pope's speech
to the ssored college on Christmas eve
has renewed tho quarrel butween thu
Vatican and Italian -government. The
liberals are highly indignant at the
Pope's denunciation of the chambers.
They declare the speech was one of the
bitterest that has been uttered from
the papal chair for years, and that the
purpose is to array the whole Christian world against Italy and urge that
the only resource for government and
parliament to pursue is to meet his at-
tack upon independancy with measures
of increased stringency against the
clergy.
WITHDRAWING TROOPS.
London, Dec. 26.—The Scotch Borderers will leave Suakim to-morrow
and the second Egyptian battalion will
soon follow. The plan of advanoing
on Handoub has been abandoned and
General Grenfiell is confident Osman
Digma will not return to attack Suakim. The Egyptian stations on the
Nile are to be strengthened.
MR,   -SMALLEY'S CABLE.
London, Dec. 26.—There iB but one
opinion in Europe. There is not a
diplomatist or statesman who does not
regard with amazement the sluggish
supineness the American government
bave thus far shown in the Sackville
matter. It has long been clear that
Lord Salisbury did not mean thore
should be another British minister at
Washington during Cleveland's administration. He has successfully
evaded the repeated questions in parliament, but his answer to Lord Dun-
ruven in the houae of lords is considered equivalent to a flat refusal to appoint a successor to Lord Sackville.
Such a refusal is the well-known
method of expressing diplomatic resentment It would be followed in
any European country by an immediate withdrawal uf the ambassador, or
minister representing in Great Britain
the power to whom suoh an affront was
offered. If tho United States do not
withdraw theirs they will bo held to
have pocketed Lord Salisbury's provocation. To keep Mr. Phelps here is
to signify tho assent of Cleveland's administration to au act intended to inflict humiliation on his country.
CHAMBERLAIN   DECLINES.
London, Deo. 26.—Joseph Chamberlain has declined the mission to
Washington.
ANOTAEU   RALLY.
London, Dec. 26.—John Bright
rallied somewhat to-day.
TROUBLE IN THE COTTON MILLS.
London, Deo. 26.—A orisis is
threatened in tho cotton trade at Bolton. Dissatisfaction is felt by tbe
masters on account of the bad work in
the mills and partly a strike of tbo
operatives, and they say they will declare a general lock-out. The operatives haye ample funds and are confident they can make a long resistance
and a prolonged struggle is feared.
TUB PANAMA  CANAL,
Paws, Bee. 26.—There has beon a
reaction in favor of the Panama canal
shares and bonds this week Under
influence of Count Delcssep's successful appeal to holders to forego interest
until tho canal is finished, holders by
thousands are sending their consent to
the proposition and there is reason to
hope a suspension of the works at Panama will be averted.
ANOTHER SETTLEMENT NECESSARY.
London, Deo. 26.—The Time* urges
a speedy settlement ff the Newfoundland fisheries dispute betweon France
and England.
AN OLD OFFICER DEAD.
Nick, Dec. 26.— General Louis Meli-
koff, ono of the oldest officers in the
Russian service, is dead.
MILAN HIVES IN.
Belgrade, Dec. 26.-King Milan
has consented to tbe nmendment of the
constitution demanded by tho radicals,
viz: tho nbolntion of the death penalty
for political ofFencos oxcept ntlempts on
life, the cessation of arbitrary arrests
without a legal warrant and tho ratification of commercial treaties by the
nuembly.
BOMB THROWING.
MADRID, Dec. 20.—A bomb exploded
last uvoiiing in front of a conservative
member of tno chamber of deputies. Tlio
perpetiators of the outrage are tin-
known,
LATE DESPATCHES.
BRUTAL SLVOGING MATCH.
Nsw York, Deo. 21.—An unusually
brutal prize fight of twelve rounds
took placo this morning at Bay Ridi-e,
L.I., Detwenn Jack Mullen and Jim
Bates, both of Brooklyn, with bare
knuckles. Mullen had the beit of tho
fight to the last round, when he broke
his left wrist over the head of his opponent and was compelled to thtow up
the sponge. It wns a brutal slugging
match of the worst character and both
men were covered with blood.
A TREATY REPORTED.
WiNNiPHo, Deo. 22.—Perez Cavalier, late secretary of the Spanish legation at Yokohama, is hero on route to
Washington. Ho says that when he
loft Japan In was currently reported in
diplomatic circles that a secret treaty
had been concluded botween Russia
and Japan against England, for the
roason thnt Russia feared, in the event
of war with England, tho Japanese
would favor the latter.
DOESN'T  BELIEVE IT.
Washington, Dec. 21.—H. A. Glid-
den, agent of tlio treasury department
at Seal Island, St. Paul and St. George,
in 1882 to 1886, was a witness boforo
the house committee ou tbe marine
and fisheries investigation into alleged
outrages in Alaska. He said he had
read the ohaiges of outrages, etc., in
tho newspapers, but did not think
there was any truth in them. He had
never heard of any cases ot criminal
assault on the islands and no com-
Elaints of seduction had reaohed him.
[ there had been any complaints to
make he would have heard of them, as
the people looked upon him as their
protector. Men employed on tbe
islands by the Alaska Company were
kind to the natives and their presence
thero tended to elevate and civilize the
people. s ,
A YOUa-H HANGED.
Crockett, Tex., Dec. 22.—John A.
Johnson tfaa hanged here yesterday for
rape. He, protested his innocence on
the Bcaffold. He was only 19 years
old,
"MY LADY'S PAdE."
Washington, Dec. 22.—Fourteen
pages in the senate chamber were
made happy to-day by substantial re-
membrauce from Senator Stanford, of
California. He presented each with a
95 bill, with the wish that each might
enjoy a merry Christmas and a hoppy
New Year.
MILLIONS IN IT.
New York, Deo. 22.—Capitalists connected with the cotton seed oil trust are
making arrangements to secure a monopoly of the manufacture of bagging made
from fine needles. It is to be wed as
covering lorootton bales, and it Is said
will drive out jute. .Several millions are
ready to be put into It.
JUMPS THE TRACK.
St, Louis, Dec. 22.—A dispatch from
Arizona Bays a construction train on the
Arizona and Southeastern road, with
sixty laborers on board, jumped the
track near Coke siding on Thursday evening, and rolled down a high embankment, killing seven or eight, and wounding soveral others. No particulars received.
THB ALASKA COMPANY.
Washington, Dec. 24.—Chairman
Poindexter Dunn of the house committee on merchant marine and fisheries has summoned ton witnesses to
appear before the committee on March
7th to testify in regard to the Alaska
seal fisheries which bis committee is
now engaged in investigating. The
resolution under which the committee
is operating empowers it to enquire
into any Violation of tho contract with
the United States by the Alaska Commercial Co., and also to enquire as to
the moral status of the inhabitants incident to the almost complete control
of St. George and St. Paul islands by
the Alaska Commercial Co. These seal
fisheries, said Mr. Dunn to a representative of the United Press association to-day, are tho most valuable in
tho world and our investigation is as to
whether-tho United States can by any
means secure more revenue from them
and at the same time preserve the
fisheries. There wns at one time seal
fishing off Japan, but that is now
practically extinct So far tho United
States has received from tho Alaskan
fisheries about §7,000,000 from these
fisheries direct, besides the indirect
revenuo which amounts to §3,000,000.
Tho whole territory of Alaska coat tho
United States about $8,000,000, so
you Bee that the purchase bas been a
profitable one. The testimony so far
adduced does not show that a proper
state of morals exists among the people, and the committee hope to arrive
at some conclusion that will promote
tho cuuae of good morals and civilisation amongWe natives of Alaska.

Complete returns of agricultural
operations  in Great  Britain,  for
1888, havo recently been iasued,says
the Commercial.    The area of land
sown to grain crops shows an aggregate increase  in  comparison with
lait year of 50,297   aores.     Notwithstanding  the  belief  in  some
quartan that the British agriculturist cannot make wheat a profitable
crop, the returns show that a considerable increased area   lias  been
given to wheat, as compared   with
last year.   The total wheat area is
placed at 2,668,226 acres, or an increase of 280,708 acres as compared
with last year.   In barley, 2,204,-
448 acres were sown, being  an  in-
•  crease of about   9,000  aores  ovor
1887.   Peas nover 242,414 acres, or
an increase of about   12,000  acres.
There is also an  increase  in  the
acerage of rye of about 23,000 acres,
the total acerage of this crop   being
89,176 acres.   The oat crop is  ap
parently the moet important grain
crop, as 4,177,121 acres are given to
this cereal.   Oats, however, show a
decrease in the acreage of 241,826
acres.   About 344,000 acres   were
devoted to beans,a decrease of about
33,000 acres under   1887.    But
while the total acreage in grain was
greater than in 1887, there is a decrease in tho grain  area,  as compared with 1878, of about 1,250,000
acres, and a large portion  of thia
decrease is in wheat.   Ten yean
ago the wheat area was  3,381,701
acres.   Thus while thero is an  increase in wheat this year, the last
decade has shown it very   consider-
' able shrinkage in the area   of  this
crop.   Barley, next to wheat, showa
the greatest shrinkage in ten years,
The area given tn roots   und   vegetables also shows a decrease in the
ten years, of about 100,000  acres.
Turnips and potatoes are tbe principal root crops, the acreage of  turnips being nearly equal to  that Of
wheat, and tlio aoroago of  potatoes
1,406,384 aores.   The grand total
of land under cultivation is placed
at 47,876,814 aores,   but   this  includes pasturage land, to the amount
of  26,700,000  acres, the   balance
being given to grain, roots,   vegetables, hny, flax, hops,  fruits,  etc.
Live stock show a considerable  decrease in numbers as compared with
last year,  though  for  ten years
there lias not  been much   ohange.
Tlie  total   figures  for   1888  are;
horses, 1,936,702;  cattle,   10,268,-
600;     sheop,   28,938,710;   pigs,
3,815,643.      The      number      of
sheep lias decreased   3,632,000 in
ten years,   while  cattle  havo  increased about 500,000.    This brief
article will give some  idea  of the
agricultural wealth of  the United
Kingdom.   The figures given include Ireland and the Channel and
other islands.
American republic, annexation will
speedily follow; and wo can well
aflbrd to-wait for that timo to como,
and it is not far distant. The
Butterworth resolution will stir up
the matter, anil that is really all
that will be needed." If tbe object
of the Butterworth resolution was,
among other things, to draw out
public opinion in Canada on the annexation question, we trust that the
American annexationists are now
satisfied that the Dominion, both as
a whole and as different sections, is
very far from being "ripe" for falling into tho American maw. If
tho United States follows the wise
policy outlined by tho Chronicle, of
waiting nntil tho fruit is ripe, instead of going to tho infinite trouble
of shaking the tree, and, then, if
successful, getting only sour fruit,
the question of annexation will be
very much simplified—in fact, it
may be indefinitely laid under tho
tablo, and, with Butterworth's resolution, placed in the waste paper
basket. If, as the Chronicle affeots
to believe, the Liberals should tako
up the annexation cry, for want of
a hotter party fad, it may safely be
predicted that the Liberal kite will
be quickly dashed to tho earth
after having attached to it such a
tail, Wo have a hotter opinion of
the Liberal party, however, than to
believe them capable, ot deliberate
suicide. In view of recent developments und the utterances of prominent Americans and the American
pi-ess, tho "commercial union" cry
cannot oxpeot to be regarded in
Canada much longer as unything
but a blind for "annexation;" and,
having been repeatedly deolared a
hopelessly dead issue by those who
have the power to pronounce upon
it, the party in Canada who some
time ago adopted that cry, will do
itself considerable credit by letting
it drop.

Speaking of the famous annexation resolution of Congressman
Butterworth, of Ohio, the San
Francisco Chroxicle says; "Of
course this resolution is only a
fooler, meant to test the strength of
the annexation sentiment in the
United: States as well as in Canada,
and to pave the way, perhaps in the
near future, for political union. It
ia not entirely certain that the resolution will pass both houses of congress, but it will afford a favorable
opportunity for debating the question and finding out the opinions of
American people on the subject.
1 same may be . said as to. tho
I the resolution in Canada,
It will, as a publio man in Montreal sayi, bring the matter of an-
neetion to a focus and: 'elicit tho
opinion of the Canadians on the
question. A commercial union
member of the Dominion parliament snys that at tho next general
election the issue will undoubtedly
be annexation, nnd thst it is an
open secret that it will be tho lead-1
ing plank in the Liberal platform.
This corresponds with what was
asserted a short time ago, that the
French Liberals in the province of
Quebec were strongly in favor of
annexation, though it is bitterly opposed by Iho Conservative! of the
same nationality. As we have had
occasion to say heretofore, there il
bnt one thing for the United Statea
to do, and that is to stand firm in
rejecting all overtures for reciprocity
or commercial union between the
two countries.' Oar platform ihould
be that when the Canadians are desirous of political union we will
gladly admit thorn to shsro in our
burdens and our blessings, but that
to lone as they continue to be a foreign nation, wo will deal with
them at arrn'a length, using the advantage of our luperior wealth and
power and population for our own
benefit^, without any considerations
ol sentiment or unything of the sort.
Wo want: Canada; ot at least aome
ot the Canadian provinces, but we
nre in a position to wait till the
fruit ripens, when it will drop into
our handi, If wo go to work to
shake the. tne, all we shall get will
be the hsrd, unripe fruit, and even
thai only after a great deal of labor.
Jnst as soon as the great mats ol
the Canadian people nee that it will
to to their advantage to join the
S. C. Provincial Exposition
Subscription Fund.
For tho purpose of raising a fund to
contributo towards the patriotic and
worthy object of making the next annual provincial fair, to be held in this
oity, a grand and unprecedented success,
'the undersigned agree to contribute the
sums opposite their respective names (to
be paid into the association or to trustees competent to receive the same, on
or before 6 months from the date of the
last provincial exhibition, and to be
applied to preparing exhibition grounds
and buildings in this oity, for increasing
the amount offered in prises, and for furthering the exhibition In other ways):

, "W-l-nkleBl"
I Heads were thrust ont ol half a dozen
nlndows and grimy doorways.
I "W-1-nklesl"
.The shrill sound echoed through the
Jlusky alley and was tossed backand forth
■from one wall of blackish stone tenements
Tto the other almost meeting It overhead.
"W-1-nklesl"
"Lor't It almost glvo me a turn. Only
Polly Lupklnaaoallin' of Moll and Jem."
The heads dlsappeard and the alley was
buret, save for the hare feet ot Molly pat-
leering toward the outstretched tin plat-
Iter from the left, and Jem, who had his
pyes fixed on the utensil from the light,
Molly was a low-necked, short-sleeved,
whit, pinched child with a shock of light
'brown hair falling over a dirty face and
lobsourlng large, pretty, blue eyes. Jem
I was a smaller and masculine Issue of the
|same edition.
" It's goln' on A fortnight lenc. they've
I'ad winkles to their dinner. See'em
Irani" aaid tbe mother, watting their approach.
"You aee, I'ad an uncommon large
I bundle o' h' army shirts from the Pluillco
[Mores this week, and I told the chil'en,
*Bez I,' 'Ef I get 'em done fer you to take
f lack this alteruoon you shall 'ave a penn-
f'orth o' winkles for yer dinner afore
latartln'. Now then, you Moll and Jem,
I look alive and seo't they glvo you fresh
I ones."
Moll and Jem darted off to the winkle
I stand around the corner, aud Moll and
I Jem's mother led theway through adingy
I passage to a low, square dingy room,
| where the midday meal was   already
I spread, at least so far as the setting out
I of aloafofbreod.abowlof dripping and
I a knife and spoon for tho distribution ot
| those edibles constituted spreading.
The first of the series of Whitechapel
horrors was discovered on the morning of
August Slat, I had planned for the first
of September a round of afternoon calls,
but the great, black-lettered bulletins
trodden under foot where the newsboys
had spread them on tho pavements at
.very street corner deoided me to make
my visits in the Bowery ot London.
In tbe endless succession of dingy streets
and dark, narrow lanes, In the squalid
houses that wall In the blind alleys
snd dismal courts of the Whitechapel
district, in the more pretentious blocks
tbat front upon its main artery, the broad,
busy Whitechapel road ablaze with glu
palaces and the paradise of cheap shops,
there live more than half a million people, and,according to London estimates,
from 10to 13 percent, of the girls and
women nre, or at some time lu their lives
have been harlots. How there comes to
be such n colony ot prostitutes, snch a
glut of female degradation, such a swarming population of abandoned women for
Jack the Ripper to wreak his vengeanco
on In the very heart of the city was the
point which I hoped my afternoon calls
might clear uu for me.
It waa at the end of Buck's Row, an
eighth of a mile maybe from the spot
where poor Polly Nichols had been found
dlaembowled the day before that I bad
opportunely dropped one or two half
pence from my change pun-just abreast
ot Mrs, Lupklns calling for Jem and
Molly to go for their winkles, nnd in
course of the search for the coins had made
her acquaintance.
" Deed an' I'm ashamed," said she," aa
any lady wa'at knowa wa'at decent things
la should find me 'ere, for tlmei ain't
i this bad with me." And ah. glanced
around at the moldy wall paper hangtng
in patches, the ragged pitfall, for the feet
which constituted all that was left of tho
carpet, the baby lying asleep in a heap of
soiled bed clothes on the floor, the chair or
two which mado up the fur nl tttre.
Mrs. Lupklns herself wasn woman otSOor
37,with the lame tumbled brown hair and
large, pathetic blue eyea which were the
prominent features of the children. Two
or thne years earlier she must have been
an attractive figure, but now her front
teeth were gone, as well as most of tho
buttons other dress, audit seemed that
i a vory gentle push would shove her over
the brink ot th. pit ot hagdom,
"I've'ad to put nil my things away,"
the said In explanation of the soantness ot
the furnishings. By putting sway the
London poor always mean pawning.
" My 'usbnnd died lost winter. 'E was
a soldier and I've been to India with 'im
an'pretty near round ths world. 'Ewas
consumptive nn' 'ad to leave ths service,
ran' tor two years 'o was janitor to a 'abl-
tatlonof the Primrose League. Then'a
died wl' fo' abulia's In'is pocket and me
gone bIx months with Nellie there. The
ladles otthe League they sent me three
pounds to last over the confinement, but
said ui 'ow I waa never to ask them for a
penny mora. It was good starvin' till I
got so'a I could do aummut again, and
'taint so much better now. They 'ad to
give me work at the guv'ment stores, because I was a soldier's widow, aud they
can't refuse. They give out army and
navy shirts at Pimlico, but the pay is only
thrlppenca apiece an ef you ain't got a
sewln' machine it ain't many in a day yon
can do. Weeka w'en I'aye all I can mako
I earn maybe six shtllin's, but there'slota
after the work, and of tener'n uot It won't
go round. Bad weeki I don't 'ave to'
ahillln'a 'orth snd once ln a w'ile none at
all. Now thin, Jem an'Moll, did ye eat
them winkles on the way'"
Jem snd Moll produced the platter ot
•nollusks snd • allot ot bread thickly
spread with dripping wu out tor etch,
with two winkle, sptttsto punade tht
unattractive meal.
" You can't think what a comfort winkles Is, winkles sn' bloaters. Wo ain't
'ad a bit 'o meat sence winter and aummut macky yon oan bay tor a penny's a
treat now sn' than."
Mrs, Lupklns' rent Wis threat, shillings
t week for tht vary dirty room, tnd I
aaked her how ahe managed to teed herself snd three children on from ons to
three shillings, tbat la from twenty-five to
seventy-five oenta mors.
Remembering ths eemvUim school
law I asked how It hsppened that th.
children were st home. Bare feet and inability to pay the school fees were tht
reason., Moll andJem had no shoes in
ing much of the fact that a mangle was to
me an unknown instrument of music, I
bogged to be  allowed  an inspection.
While tha heavy press was grinding ont
coarse underwear 1 studied this aecond
specimen otthe Whitechapel woman. She
was a widow, like my first acquaintance,
older, neater, -thin, .probably consumptive.
'Bean tnlkln' to Mrs. Lupklns, aint yet"
she panted, turning the groaning handle
round aud round. "Ever see 'er before!
Not Then you can't think 'owshe'schaug.
ed. W'en she come'ere last winter she
was tbedecontest'oomanlnBuck'aRow.
She kep' 'erself nice an* tidy, an'them
children was slick as pins. Bnt she's got
discouraged an' fell Into low company an'
nex' time she's ont o' work she'll go on
tho street, I've Been fifty women go tbat
way an' I know the signs, Its 'er turn
nex' trust me."
To go on the street means inBucks Row
to starve on the casual hire of prostitution Instead of starving on the hlre.of
government shirts*
The woman with the mangle had three
children also and the four occupied one
room. She had supported herself for
three or four yeara by washing and mangling nt nine pence per dozen pieces. Sho
paid 4 shillings a week for rent of a room
a little larger than Mrs. Lnpkins's and
was able to earn about 7 shillings a week
ln summer ond 0 shillings a week when
times were good ln winter. She had been
doing, she considered, very well, but the
work was too hard for her, and she was
obliged to haveln sboy ones or twice a
week to turn th. mangle while she Ui It,
paying for his services» penny an hoar.
A charity doctor had warned her that she
was straining her cheat and that if ahe
wanted to live Bhe must give up the
work, but there was absolutely nothing
else she conld do to maintain her children,
and I shrewdly luspeoted, apropos ot her
comment on Mra Lupklns, that In spite
of her tidy room and efforts at respectability she waa weighing the choice between mangling herself Into a coffin snd
going on the street.
I saw women employed by umbrella
manufacturers to knit the tops of tassels
at 4 shillings ft pence per gross snd the
work was so fine that tht gross1 kept them
busy a week. I visited otber women making brushes a penny per hundred holes
filled with fibres of hair. I fonnd ono woman making sacksfor the navy. Shewaa
paid by the government 4 ahilllngsfor ten
large sacks, each of which had light holes
In It, four splices and two patches. Each
must be sewn, roped and marked with a
broad arrow. There were women making
neckties at 3 shillings a gross andglrli
wbo were paid sn pence per gross for
making tho covers and traya of match
boxes. I saw women making babies' boots
and earning about two penes sn hour,
women making paper bags, purses, life
belts, baskets, tobacco poucbea and twenty other things which are done st home.
Every day the pay for horn, business
grows less, for many men wbo aro ont ot
work take to these small occnpatlona and
undersell tho women who a few years ago
controlled tho home Industry market.
Whitechapel women sell themselves because tbey have nothing else left to nil.
The apprenticeship system of England
tells heavily against the squalid children
ot Whitechapel streets. "What will becomo of the swaima ot urchins lurking ln
every passage!" I asked an intelligent
woman who knows Whitechapel streets
as other women know Belgravla, " These
women can't apprentice their girls to milliners or dressmakers or other tradespeople, becauso they can't raise tho £25 ot
£30 premium. They have not the faintest
chance of learning any business that will
yield living wages.
"They will grow up aa strut Arab.,"
sho said," marry very yonng and without
30 shillings ahead. By and by work will
fail and they will be driven to the streets
for bread and lodging, If indeed their
mothers did not sell them before they
wero grown."
Wiittecbapel Is an awful fact, for many
of its women practically choose between
semi-starvation nnd harlotry.

The money spent upon politics In Now
York oity this year waa so great as to
stagger all belief. On election day alone
each Tammany captain was given 1115 to
"spend upon the boys;" each County
Democratic captain 1100; each Republican
$75, and each Labor leader 130;—a total of
$320 for each election district. This makea
a grand total of 1273,000 for tht autlri
eity. There were over S00 candidates for
local offlcea. Of these U0 belonged to thi
great political organizations, which meant
that they all paid assessment, to campaign committee., subscriptions tb clubs

('lirlstmns Carols.
The wim and peaceful Christmas
morn had scarcely been announced
when a number of young men sallied
up Mary Street uttering cries and
whoops so hideous that many quiet
citizens, rudoly awakened, imagined
that some wild tribes from the plains
wero raiding the town. Constable
Curly threatened to lock them up if
the noise was nut stopped, but they
protested that they were only singing
Christmas carols in native Cree, and, as
tho conatablo was not familiar with tho
poetic tongue, and could not prove
otherwise,  he allowed them to go.

queer that they are so very reluctant
to meet the local club. The captain uf
tho Rovors wired to Now Westminstor
to-day about tbo match and requested
them to wiro reply at once. Up to
tho time of going to press no unswer
had arrived. If no word is forthcoming tho Rovers will claim the cup,

The Tacoma Ledger of a recent dato
has n long article, from which wo make
the following extracts:
"Thomas H. Cantield and daughter Burlington, Vermont," is written upon tne register of The Tacoma under the dato of Sunday. An
old gentleman of quiet demeanor,
rather under the medium size than
otherwise, sauntered about the lobby
of the hotel yesterday afternoon.
Neither he nor the name upon the
register attracted much attention in
the ebb and flow of the crowd; few
recognized either; only an occasional
very old timer grasped the old gentleman's hand as though honored in being
able to recognize him. And yet this
old gentlemen, Thomas H, Canlield,
was the man who located the township
of Tacoma; it was he who made the
purchase of 2500 acres of land around
the head of Commencement bay in behalf of the railroad company for ita
terminus while yet tho end uf Ihe
tracks were more tlian a thousand
milea away; it was he who first recognized in the west shores of Commencement bay a most excellent placo to invest money in real estate—no wus here
ahead of any of us and he saw as clearly than as we do now, the great destiny of the northwest. And yet in the
crowd that came and went and jostled
MERRIT CHRISTMAS.
A Bright aad BeaMlM Day aad Enjoyed by All. How it was Hiwut.
A more bright aud glorious Christmas than wis yesterday has not been
since the day was first honored. A
bright and cloudless sky, a warm sun
and tho air cloar and slightly frosty,
with just a faint breeze stirring, was
certainly alt that could be desired to
make the Christmas perfection itself.
From early morning the streets were
full of people who seemed to be intent
on wringing each other's hands off,
while on every sido was hoard the exclamation, "A merry Christmas to
you," The churches were well attended and eloquent sermons wore preached
by the clergymen officiating. Few
peoplo wont out of town to spend their
Christmus, but many Victoria and
Vancouver people dined with friends
in this city. A number of driving
parties wero out during the afternoon,
but, tu thoso accustomed to eastern
weather, it seemed a little odd to be
riding in a carriage on Christmas day.
At the Royal Columbian hospital 16
patients Bat down to dinner with Mr.
W. H, Keary presiding at tho head of
the table. A splendid spread wus on
the board and all the patients seemed
to enjoy it exceedingly. Tho board of
directors acknowledge with thanks a
Christmas card for each patient and a
lino largo goose from Rev. Mrs. Scouler, a box uf apples from Mrs. Major,
a bux of oranges-from Mr. M. Sinclair,
a cake from Mrs. llarvoy, jam nnd
plum pudding from Mrs. J. G. Jaques,
and a cake from Kelly Bros.
At St Mary's hospital twelve sat
down to dinner and eight wore served
in bed. The dinnor was thoroughly
good in every respect and tho bill of
fare included oysters, chickens, game.
turkey, plum pudding and many othor
good things. Tho most cf those items
were presented to the hospital by
friends, and the sisters desire us to
express their sincere thanks for the
samo. Tho hospital was filled with
visitors during tho whole day.
At the asylum 81 patients wore
treated to an extra good dinner, and
at tho provincial gaol 45 prisoners
were served with roast beef and plum
pudding in their cells.
The members of the Independent
order of Good Templars enjoyed a
dinner nt thoir rooms yesterday after-
noun, and it proved to be a must happy
gathering. A free invitation had been
given the general public to be present
and many availed themselves of the
opportunity. The dinner was excellent iu overy particular and a good
time was spent by all.
A large number uf private dinner
parties were given last night, and all
appear to have been most enjoyable affairs, as we have yet to hear of anyono
who went home diasntisfied. Santa
Clans paid his usual visit to Westminstor and it seems he was moro lavish
than ever with his gifts. Tho children
were busy nil day exhibiting their
presents, und the wondrous pleasure
thoy ti.ke out of them moro than repays tho oust uf playing Santa Clnu*.
Taking thu day as n wholo it was certainly a "Merry Christmas" in Westminster.

A Critic Criticised.
Ekituk Columbia**:: — Would yon
kindly allow me space in The Columbian
for a few remarks on the strictures of my
critic, "Hntopayor." By what system of
reasoning thla gentleman arrives at his
conclusions as to my "ill-concealed malice" against him is known only to himself aud his coadjutor, It Is imposeible
to construe your correspondent's reference
to municipal matters in any other light
than that of straightforwardness. The
different topics were broached merely
for discussion, and had my oritio possessed the manliness of an honorable foe,
to combat the matter in hand which he
is pleased to dub "misleading and untrue," the controversy would, so far as I
am concerned, havo ended with his communication; but, sinco ho has deemed it
prudent to traduce me and refloat on my
moral character, your correspondent owes
it a duty to tho people "to whom," his
critic says, "ho is indebted for his stay
in Maple Ridge" and for "his bread and
butter in this settlement," to reply to his
scurrilous and contemptibly malignant
personal ctfiision. If my critic is correct
in his aspoi'sious, tlie majority of the people cannot fool otlierwiso than aggrieved
to think that they have thoso many years
been so successfully victimized by this
"scoffer and snecror." Granting tho
truth of his allegations as to my scoffs
and sneers, back-biting, false statements
in tho press, and the other calumnious
charges which make un his letter, does
he for a moment think that ho refloats
severely on tbe people's judgment and
power of discernment? Why, no on*
lightened community would tolerate the
Idea of contributing to the support of
such a mouster of wickedness! My
critic's microscopic brain had during last
week so abundantly elaborated what it
supposed my sins, that he found it expedient to consult hia deputy, and, after
mature deliberation their combined intelligence began to excrete from their
dormant chambers for the purpose of apprising tlio community of the character
of their supposed malicious foe and
silencing him forever. The expulsion of
tlio contents of my critic's brain in tho
columns of The Columbian, for tho sole
benefit of the benighted peoplo of Maplo
Ridge, it is hoped, may serve another
useful purpose, in as far as the critic's
mental calibre is concerned, for it may
lead to the growth of a less morbid
organ in place of his much exhausted one.
But I must revert to tho subject of
dispute. The matter of the municipal
deficit is patent to all, not excepting my
critic, who, by the way, admits of its
existence, but expresses tho hopo that by
tho end of the year it will be reduced
to ton cents. How a municipal deficit is
to bo reduced without a new assessment
is difficult to understand. It may possibly be reduced by a donation from my
oritio, which, at this time, would materially enhance hia chances of election.
Tho vote of consuro referred to was
not sprung on a purely temporanco meeting, Tlio question was submitted for
discussion to a mass meeting composed
of Good Templars and others. Of course,
tho object of the meeting waa tho promotion of temperance, aud valuable suggestions were made by Rev. A. Tait, and
Rev. M. .Stevens, Docs my critic suppose that the meeting should be postponed
to suit his convenience? The time and
placo of the mass meeting were amply
advertised. Tlie crowded assemblage
attested tlie fact that no undue advantage
over anyono was contemplated or desired. The resolution referred to tbe
evils resulting from tho salo of liquors off
the boats at landings. This sale was
stopped some years ago, as my critic, if
possessed of tbe faculty of memory, well
knows. Tlio licensing board, there
being no Good Templar lodge then, re-
quested tho municipal council to stop tho
Bale, Tho matter was taken In hand and
the salo for the timo stopped, Had a
similar course, or an equally effective
one, been pursued this year the action of
tbe mass im-cting in its resolution would
be uncalled for.
My critic knows that Maple Ridge always has been a temperance settlement,
and although liquor licenses were granted, it was contrary to the wishes of tho
majority of the settlers. The present
Good Templar's lodge is only 15 months
in existence, and although ft embraces
within its fold a large number of members, it by no means follows tbat the majority of the settlers are "good templars."
There arc many who will not join a
lodge, but aro nevertheless temperance
people. Tho allusions to my relation to
tlio temperance movement, which had
its inception prior to my coming here,
arc as every ono knows, charactcrestic of
"ratepayer a" own actions In tho promises. Trusting that I have not encroached
too much on your space   P. Mukuay.
