The Moravians not only give
more men and money to the missionary cause than any other body of
Christians, in proportion to their
numbers, but they show absolute
fearlessness and indifference to hardships in their selection of mission
ground. Of their sixteen missions,
one is in Greenland, one in MeBquito
const, a third among the Himalayas,
arid a fourth among the Esquimaux
in Alaska.
A Bowmanville doctor who went
to London, England, to consult Sir
Morell Mackenzie for n sorious affection of the root of his tongue, writes
that eminent authority is of opinion
that tho trouble was caused by licking postage stamps. Licking postage stamps is a pernicious practice.
It robs tho stamp of mucilage which
is bad for the stamp, and it puts
mucilage into the mouth, which is
bad for the mouth. Both these
evils can Ito avoided by moistening
tho corner of the envelope and the
ungummed side of the stamp. The
latter process prevents the stamp
from curling.
There will havo to be a change
in tho law regarding imprisonment
of debtors in this province. A case
of extreme hardship has just come
to light. A man who borrowed
thirty-live dollars at the usurious
rato of ono hundred and eighty per
cent, por annum, was proceeded
against and finally imprisoned, his
debt, including legal costs, then
amounting to seventy-eight dollars,
for which he spent two hundred
nnd nine days in gaol. The legal
proceedings seem to havo been
irregular, but regular or irregular
tho affair is an outrage upon good
sense, and the law under which suoh
things are possible should be altered.

Tho British military papers, in
speaking of Oapt. Henry O. Kane,
of tho Calliope, say that he is already
marked for promotion. They say at
the admiralty his escape from the
hurricane, whieh proved destruction
tb every other warship on the Apia
station, is regarded as a triumph of
scientific seamanship. Not only,
they say, did ho understand tho full
meaning of tho barometrical warnings, bnt he was prepared for the
worst, and he knew what to do
when the hurricane came. Recognizing the treacherous character of
equatorial meteorology, he kept a
lookout for disturbances of the kind,
had his bunkers well filled with
coal, and maintained a good hoad of
steam in the boilers. Then, whon
the warning camo, ho was ablo to
make for the only place of safety,—
the open sea,—without loss of time.
Capt. Kane is in his forty-sixth
year, and was appointed to the
Oalliopo in January 1887.
A popular young man who, despite tho fact that he does not dance,
is rather prominent in tho social
life of tho town, toldhow he managed
to transform his inability to dunce
into a new element of popularity,
says the Albany Express. "I got
the idea from a girl," ho explained
"and I havo frozen to it right along.
I met her out ono night, and observing lhat I was not dancing, sho
asked mo if I ever danced. 1 confessed that I did not, and went on
to sny that I wns constantly bemoaning tho fact. 'Undoubtedly,'
she said, you must find it annoying
at times; and yot if you know how
to tnako use of it, do you know that
in ono way you have an advantage
growing out of tho very fact that
you do not danco. Of course I
wanted an explanation. 'Why, it's
simple enough,' she said. 'Never
put your namo down for a dance until towards the ond of the evening.
Then put your name down for ono
danee with eaeh of the girls in whom
you are most interested. By the
time that your dances are due the
girls will havo heondancing for hours,
and will have become pretty well
tired out. Thon as you lead them
out on the floor, propose a promenade
instead of a danco, and depend upon
it they will mentally bless you for
your consideration—you will have
gained far moro than though you
had danced with them ever so gracefully.' "Well, I'vo tried thnt suggestion," continued the youth,
"und I nover knew it to fail. It's
a great idea,"

Tiacy to-dny completed negotiations

which the company's steamer Alameda
will touch at Apia, on her way up

Admiral Kimberly and remaining officers and men of the wrecked men-of-
war and eonvey them to San Francisco.
The departure of Admiral Kimberly
aud party from the scene of the recent
trouble looks liko ending the Samoan
difficulties.
THB O. F, R. COMPETITION.
San Francisco, May 27.—Superintendent Fillmoro, of the Southern Pa*
cifio Railway Oompany, complained to
a reporter this afternoon that business
was nut nearly aa good as it should bo
at this time of year. One of the chief
causei, he said, was the competition
of the C. P. R., wliich is not hampered
by the inter-state law, which makes it
so hard for the seaboard cities to keep
up their commercial supremacy. The
American roads disburse all their
earnings iu America, while this road
does not spend a dollar in this coun*
try. It sounds very nice to talk about
the benefits of a competing line, but
the benefits of a line that disburses
930,000,000 a year in the state In
whioh in man-wen live are of some
consequence llio,
LYNCHED THB BRUTE.
Pout Huron, Mich., May 27.—On
Muy Ilth a colored tramp entered the
house of John Gilles, 4 mileB west of
this city, and mado a brutal assault on
Mrs. Gilles.   A large pospe of farmers
scoured the country for him   but did
not succeed in finding him.   The Port
Huron police, however, discovered Iiini
hiding iu tho woods and lodged him in
jail.   Ho gave   the  namo  of  Albert
Martin and was fully identified.   Two
puttol shots startled the people in the
neighborhood of the jail this morning.
Tlio shots wero fired  by   tho  sheriff,
but the mob surrounding tho jail paid
no attention to the shots..   Somo had
already gained  an   entrance  to  the
jailer's room and   were   battering  on
tlio dour with heavy sledge hammers.
The locks and catches  offered   but a
momuntaty resistance  and  soon  tho
men seized the mulatto, who   was  in
bed, and fastened a  rope   round  hiB
neck.    Martin  resisted  desperately,
bracing hiB knees against thu eell door
while 20 men were tugging at the rope
aud others woro kicking  him  in  the
back of tho head.   He then grabbed at
a stone, which was jerked out of place,
and, just before reaching tho outsido
door, struggled to his   foet.   He   wss
struck a torriblo blow in the  back  of
the head by a waggon spoke and   waa

struck on tho head by a  sledge  hammer and fully 20 revolver Bliots  wero
fired at him, one taking offect  in   his
head and another in   his  back.   Ho
must have been dead before tho  mob
had gone the length of the first block,
but he wus drugged through tho sand
and over the pavement to the Seventh
Street bridge, threo blocks  from  the
jail, where he wan strung  up  to  the
iron si ringers.   Ho was cut down  by
the sheriff a fow minutes later, but he
was dead and mangled almost beyond
recognition.   The whole affair did not
occupy more than 20 minutes.   Only
the sheriff and turnkey were on duty
nt the time, although they were warned that an attempt would be mado to
lynch Martin.

locked and the blinds down, hut it was
littlo or no difficulty in getting admission to perhaps one-third of them by
private sido or back entrances. About
two-tlurds of the saloons that kept
open on Sunday are believed to have
been closed. There wero flvo arrests
by police of the moat defiant of the
proprietors of open houses. In one
case the proprietor was arrested three
times boforo he closed and the Liw

1NTKRE8TINO  EVIDENCE.
London, May 2ft.— Maurice Healy,
M. P., for Cork, was placed  in  the
witness box to-day at the sitting of the
Parnell commission.   He admitted the
national league of Cork had * received
an application from various branches
of the league for lists of names of merchants and members of the league in
order thnt all others might be boycotted.   In answer to' an interrogation,
Healy held this practice was legitimate.
Joseph Biggar, M. P., fnr West Cavan,
deposed he   was  expelled  from   the
supreme council of Fenians becauso he
advocated constitutional methods.   He
afterwards  joined   the league.    His
speech in 1886, in which he referred to
Hurt matin having imitators in Ireland,
had been misread.   He really only intended to warn whigs that  the disgust
of the people might result in the  use
of dynamite.    He subsequently advised the people to see to it that the land
was of no value to land grabbers.   He
alio admitted saying that while it waa
no part of the  league to recommend
shooting of landlords, it would defend
persons oharged with shooting them or
their agents.   Biggar said he spoke
thus because he had no confidence in
the administration of law in Ireland.
Moreover   ho    believed   the league
should defend prisoners when crimes
with which they were oharged  arose
from bad laws.   He  said that Egan
and he wore trustees of the league's
funds.   Ho was unable to associate
Egan with the Sheridan outrage,

tho money appropriated for road-*,
trails and bridges in tho west division

the gentleman also gave it as his opinion that the assistant commissioner of

to work on that waggon road, Truth
will give him the full measure of

As everyone knows, tho fisheries
question is one of tho points—the
main point—of friction between
l J vent Britain nnd Camilla on ono
sido itnd the United States on the
other. Tho Atlantic Coast has
hitherto been the scene whore tho
rival interests most clashed, but the
theatre of notion nnd of interest
appears to have been transferred to
our own coast this year, liy our
Victoria dispatches to-day, it will bo
seen that the peoplo of tho capital
are considerably excited over the
reported ordering north of four British men-of-war und two torpedo
boats to protect, it is expected, the
interests of Canadian scalers
Behring's Sea. As about an equal
number of American cruisers have
their prows set for the same objective
point, it must be confessed that
the situation is becoming interesting, Ab thore is a great deal of
mystery and uncertainty, however]
about the movements and intentions
of the vnrious high parties concern
ed, it will be time enough to throw
up our hats and hurrah when wo
hoar tho report from tho first broadside, a culmination which tho stapling and good sense of all part ind will
render very improbable, if not im-
The long looked for navigation
chart  of  the lower Fraser River
came to hand a week   or two ngo.
A committee of the board of trade
have sat on it and found it "a delusion and a snnro."   Great were the
efforts and  many the set-hacks and
disappointments of our indefatigable
board  of  trado in moving the Dominion  authorities    to   have   tins
chart   prepared,  so   that  shippers
might easily ascertain   tho  nature
and condition of   tlio channel as it
is.   But the chart us gotten up and
issued by the department of marine
is worse than useless, and, us will
have   been   seen   by a, report of a
meeting  published last week, tlm
board of trade have so declared it,and
have requested the ministerof marino
to have it corrected beforo sending
it out, or to withdraw it altogether.
The perverse stupidity, or somothing
worse, of the Dominion government
in failing to do ordinary justice in
matters affecting the navigation of
this river has been most provoking,
and in this last instanco more so
than ever.   The report of the committee of the board   on the chart
showes that, insteud of preparing
the chart from the most recent data,
whicli common sense and tho least
regard for its value to shippers and
the interests of this city and distriot
would have dictated, portions of the
chart are compiled from soundings
taken in 1886 and so long aa twenty-
one years ago.   As a natural consequence the present channel ia uot
represented at all on the chart either
as regards its course or the depth of
water.   On tho contrary it is fearfully misrepresented in both these
particulars, and the department can
not  do  less than comply with the
. reasonable request of the board of
trade and have a new and corrected
chart issued, which should be dono
without delay.
- One great secret of success in business, says a writer in the Christian
Union—the secret, in fact, of success on a large scale—is to conceive
of it as a matter of principles, not
merely as a series of   transactions.
There are great merchants as there aro
great statesmen, and there are small
merchants ns there are small politicians, and tho difference between tiio
great nnd tho small men is very muoh
the same in both professions.   Tho
small politician works by the day,
and sees only tho oue small opportunity beforo him, tho small merchant does tho same thing—ho is
looking for the next dollar.    Tlie
statesman, on the other hand,   is
master of the situation becauso he
understands tho general principles
which control events; this knowledge
enables hint to deal with large questions and to shape the future.   The
great merchant does the same thing,
his business is not a mere money-
getting affair, not a mere matter of
barter, but a science and an art, he
studies the general  laws of trade,
watches  the general conditions of
the  country, investigates  present
needs,  forsees   futuro  wants, and
adapts  his   business to the broad
conditions    of     his    time    and
place.    He  puts as much brains
into    his    work    as    does    the
statesman, and he ends by being
not  a   money getter, but a large
minded and capable man,   An eminently successful business man, of
the statesmanlike quality, said recently that the more he understood
of life, the moro clearly he saw that
it was all done on business principles.   By which ho meant, not only
that  the  universe  stands forthe
dollar, but that the universe is governed   by unvarying   laws,  that
promptness, exactness, thoroughness,
and  honesty are wrought into its
very fibre.   On those business prin
oiples all  life is conducted—if not
by men, at leut by that Power
which is behind man. It ought to
be the ambition of every yonng man
to treat his business from the point
of view of the statesman, and not
from that of the politician.
A plan to make house-tops useful,
applicable  especially  to   crowded
city tenements, is sketched  by Dr.
Gouverneur M. Smith, in a paper
on    "Wasted   Sunbeams—Unused
House-tops." Tho Oriental, says the
author, has no difficulty in the matter.   Ho  lives on the top of the
house   a conaiderablo part of  the
year   and  builds Ins roof with an
especial eyo to that sort of occupation.   Why may not we? By pitching our tents upon them, or by taking   them   us they are, except that
tho roof coverings would have to be
mado more solid, wc might mako our
roofs comfortable sojourning places
and inexpensive summer health resorts. Hoofing, continues tho author,
can be contrived suited to tho climate, nnd  enduring as pavement.
A pleasure  resort, might ornament
each   residence, its limits bounded
by the area of tho dwelling} neighborly consent could widen the range,
turf nnd flowers brighten tlie plan.
Iron-framed and glass-inclosed rooms
or cupolas  could   be added, which
would   prove useful during all seasons,   'artificial    heat    tempering
brumal inclemency.   If such adaptation of housetops would be an advantago  to  the affluent, who can
escape city life during the summer,
how much greater advantage would
be secured to the tenement houso
districts! exclaims tho philanthropic
doctor nitd nuthor.   For tho higher
graded tenement houses such fresh
air facilities would   be hailed with
delight liy the inmates.   The proximity of open breathing places to
their   t,ioms   would   endear  their
hum bio hnmes.   Summer "moonlight
evenings could have a new aspect;
uud ngain, round a family lantern,
gvoupn might gather to read, sew, or
engage in games, and thus a home-
felt   pleasure   would   quiet restless
spirits, craving questionable or illicit
amusements.   More true enjoyment
might be observed in such groups
than on the piazzas of fashionable
resorts.   Landlords   could   arrange
for the periodical sweeping of roofs,
as well us of the halls and stairways,
and, among a very largo class of the
respectable poor, prido would stimulate  -> a tidy and decorative care of
their home parks. By a little alteration  :n structure thi upper stories
of houses, now stuffy places enough,
could   be made light und airy, and
attractive us resorts or play rooms
in   inclement weather.    Evoryone
who has the remotest conception of
the discomforts, not to say miseries,
that aro the daily lot of  the   tenement dweller in the larger cities will
earnestly   hope   that Dr,   Smith's
beneficent  scheme may be carried
out nnd the realization of the bright
picture he draws become universal.

THE  PAWNBROKERS'  TRADE.
Onu of tho Landing Clorks Tolls of Strango
Thin-,*.-- Ho Sees.
Thoro are two sides to a pawnbroker's
counter, says tlie Now York World. On ono
sido thoro is always to lio found a woll-
drossed man with un air of perfect coolness
ubout hiin and a tone la his voice that tho
experienced know. If that voice says "S3,"
thero is no use arguing with hiin to niolto it
tQ.SH). To the othor sido of tho counter thero
como all kinds,"-lasses aud conditions of
mon, women aud children. The only bond
of union that touches thoso peoplo is that
thoy aro human aud all noed money. Tho
miseries of those who go at certain stated
times to thia counter aro woll known.
Thoro aro to ho found tbo well-to-do temporarily embarrassed, the onco affluent reduced to poverty by some had turn of tho
wheel of fortune, the wild individual who is
always "broke," tho poor uho go regularly
to pledge some Uttle article until tho weekly
pay conies in, and tho impecunious young
man who has squandered his week's earnings in a night and must live somehow until
tho next pay-day.
AU of theso poople aro well known, but
the man on tho othor sido of tho counter is
a stranger to ovory body. If his own
brother comes in to raise a littlo money on
some valuable, tho face of tho man behind
tho counter nover changes, and his answers
would be just as brief and emphatic and
that tono in bis voico would sound just as
unchangeable as thougli ho hod novor Beon
tho person beforo. This man behind tho
counter is a oharactor. At no othor occupation aro the popular requirements horo
coon needed so much. Behind his counter ho
i i not liko any othor mortal alive. Ho is
dead to sympathy, oblivious to pity and can
not bo insulted.
Reuon Uy a roporter mot one of theso seemingly heartless mon away from his oouuter
und ho appeared to be ono of tho most gonial
and gcnilo of men. His brevity and stoicism
bo had either loft behind in tho cash drawer
or Imd put a ticket ou and stored until his
rotuni, and ho willingly consented to toll a
very fow of tho things ho sees and explain
his position on the otber sido of tho counter.
"A clork in a pawnbroker's shop," ho
said, "is always thought to be hard-hearted, fond of tuunting tbo poor with whom ho
deals, and is frequently accused of refusing
i to givo a fair amount on somo artlclo of
il uo; but 3uch is ronlly not tho case. Why,
bless your heart! because wo handlo monoy
ami muko loans people sooni to think wo
loan it out becauso wo don't know what to
do with it. This Ib a mistake. Wo aro
only working for our omploycr, and are
ofton strapped ourselves. I know what it
is to go to somo rival pawnshop and raiso
money on my watch, aud it is no fun. Thoy
say that wo are hard-hearted, but such is
not tho case. I often got bluo at scoing so
much misory about mo, and when somo
young follow comes in with tho signs of
dissipation nbout hlm and offers for a loan
n watch which, by tho inscription, is a gift
from his mothor, I would, if I dared, try to
help him, but I can not. I havo soon littlo
gii'lav/ith wnn and pinched faces bring lu
the lust household god that sho might got
aoiuothiug to eat. If 1 dared I would givo
her more money than tho article was worth.
'■There is another caller, and that Is the'
temporarily embarrassed man who has it
in his power to soon arrange matters and
redeem hia pledges. I do not waste any
sympathy or aleuplcss . nights on him. I
could surprise you if I gave you tho names
of some of our customers. Tho peoplo wo
soo most aro tho sporting mon who havo
made some unlucky vonturo and have to
ralso what thoy call a stokofortho next
day. Thoy always redeem promptly, but
wc havo thom sometimes as often as twice
a wook. I'have in my ten years' oxperi-
/ onco behind tho counter loaned mourn* to
: lawyers, proaonors, actors ana morciiautn.
[ I havo soon society mon and broken-down
inebriates stand in adjoining hexes.    a
"Wo havo somo queer experiences, at
i times and are plucod in situations that require allot our coolness.   Aboutumonth
( ago a fashionably-dressed young woman
j camo in to pav tho interest duo thut day on
a diamond ring which sho hnd pawned a
year boforo.   I calculated tho interest and
■ she was about to bund mo tho monoy when
I a woll-known lawyer—quito a society mun,
I too, by tho wny—camo in to examine somo
.i goods beforo ho bought tho ticket. I saw
j tbo young lady turn palo and knew somo-
f thing had gono wrong. Tho lawyer raised
f hiB but politely, and did not conceal Im ns-
l tonishmont when he Baid: -Why, Miss —,
f what aro you doing herd Cun I do any
h thing for youl" When ho called tbo young
1 lady's namo I knew it at onco, and so would
\ you, and I saw that I had to got tho girl out
l of a scrape somehow, so I just called her
| familiarly by hor name, which I had heard
[ tbo luwycr uso for the flrst timo, for peoplo
j raroly glvo tholr roal names when thoy
* pledge articles, and asked hor to step into
| tho private offico and I would show her tbo
I goods she had asked about. She was clover
? and took up my cue at onco, and suid: 'I
I thought of buying a diamond ring. It is
I such a lovely thing and so cheap.' Our
f combined stroke of diplomacy saved hor. I
J showed hor hor own ring. Sho lookod at it,
j admired it and said sho would call the noxt
I day und got it. I put it to ono side and tho
\ next duy sho camo and paid tho interest.
"Thoro is not a day pusses but 1 seo somo
[ people moot In tbo shop who would havo
I given almost any thing if they could lmve
[ prevented it. Yes, wo have some vory
I funny things offered. I remember once
i thut a cowboy brought in a Bcalp-a relic,
[ ho called it—but wo declined tho loan. It
I hus got so now thut almost every body car-
| rlcs somo article of value in case bo runs
J short.''
During tho mst fow years tho number of
■ pawnbroktng establishments has greatly
), increased in number, and it Is a paying
[■ busl-ioss, Tho rates of interest aro simply
j enormous. It is vory raroly that any thing
: liko a decent value is given for an article
| pledged. It seems to bo nn unwritten law
' that one-fourth of tho actual valuo of any
t plcdgo is all that nny ono will offer, and in
I cukos where tho pledge iB not redeemed the
i pawnbrokers sell tho article for its valuo
I and obtain a handsomo return,
Bow Cane-HantH-ji Are Curled.
Many people wonder how the bandies of
tho' sticks mode from hiokory, nialncca,
hazel and a variety of other woods are
curlod. This is effected by tho application
of heat. Tbo workman Axes ono end of tho
cano firmly ln a vice aud pours a continuous
stream of Are from a gasplpo on the part
whieh is to bo bent When sufficient heat
has been applied tho cane is pulled gradually around until the hook is formed; it is
then firmly secured with string, and nfter
an additional application of heat ln tho form
i of baking the ourl Is permanently fixed.
Tho under part of tho hook, whieh is much
charred by the action of tho gas, is rubbed
down as muoh as possible and smoothed
with sand-paper before polishing.
The 1'Itraie <• Homo Kale."
Mr. 15. 8, Brundrcth, ono of tho sub-cdi-
\ tors of tho Now English Dictionary, has
boon nt great pains to find tho answer to
this question. Tho rosult cf his researches
i3 lo show that tho phraso "Homo Rulo "
was first used by tho lato Mr. A. M. Sullivan in tho Rattan of July 88,WHO. It did
not como Into ganornl uso, however, until
ten years later, whon tho Irish Fi*otontnnla,
disgusted with Mr. Gladstones Dlsestiib-
liclimont measure, founded "Tho Ilcno
Government Association -for Ireland.'"
Tho movement was taken up by tho anti-
landlord party, who revived Mr. Sullivan's
neat phraso and mado It their watchword.

■eal Estate*
Real estate transfers, though not so
numerous as last week, continue active,
and tho domand for both city and sur-
burban property does not appear to
havo lessoned perceptibly. Several
largo blocks of Biirburbuu property
havo changed hands during tho past
few days nt prices satisfactory to both
buyer and seller. Farming lands receivo considerable attention from intending purchasers, but tho movement
in this branch is nothing to what it
will bo within a very few months.
Prices remain lirm with un upward
tendency.
Ashore lu the Jim-rows.
Wo aro informed thnt tho C. P. R.
steamer Dnnube, that runs betweon
Vancouver, Portland and San Francisco, has gone ashore iu Ihe narrows,
near Vancouver, At the timo of her
striking the tido was nearly full, and
it is very probablo that it will be
neceaaary to discharge her cargo beforo
ehe will float. The extent of the injuries tho Dnmibo has sustained is not
known, It seems that that tho Danube
while entering the narrows at 4 o'clock
ou the morning of the 24th iuut. ran
nground mi the left bank. It is bu-
ilevud that she hnd no pilot aboard at
the time of tho accident.—Courier;
The Park Improvement. ('.*)
Tt ia becoming general talk about
town thnt tbo affairs of tho park improvement schemo lmve beon badly
inismnnuged. It is stated that only 21
amis have been cleared, instead of 'A0
ns at first reported, and that it will bo
impossible to burn the wood piles
without destroying all tho trees left to
ornament the park. If this turns out
to bo tho case, the cost of removing
tho timber will prove something enormous. It will not do to leavo the
park without shade trees, otherwise ita
value as a pleasure resort will not
amount to much. Over §3,000 have
been expended on tho improvements,
and, apart from the clearing of tho 21
acres, thoro is nothing to show for tho
expenditure of this largo amount. Perhaps some one will rise and explain
to tho public.

•■Everybody's School."
As will bo seen by an advertisement,
Rev. Dr. Ormiston, who ia on a flying
trip to tho coast, has consented to
speak iu the Presbyterian church in tliis
city on Thursday (to-morrow) night,
when lie will deliver his great lecture,
"Everybody's School—or Mnn the
Pupil of Mankind." To thoso who
have lived in tlio eastern provinces it
is not necessary to say that Rov. Wm.
Ormiston, D. D., L. L. D., is a moat
eminent preacher nnd lecturer and a
remnrkable man. Ho has long held
firat rank ns a preacher and divine both
in eastern Canada and the eastern
American states, whore ho has been
highly honored aa the pastor of some
of tbo most important churches.
Dr. Ormistou's personal presence
is described aa remarkable and
commanding, and his oloquence is
of a high order. No ono should misi
the opportunity of hearing the lecture
to-morrow night, as it promises to be
a treat indeed.
ThoMnrclior fU-Hizntlnri.
The wild and warlike savage of the
western Blope is rapidly coming down
to tho level of the whites, nnd fashions
and modea which a few years ago the
noble rod man looked upon with proud
disdain ho ia now toying with in a suspicious manner. It ia not nt all uncommon to ceo n Siwaah lolling nbout
his wigwam in tho cool of tho evening with a cImv hammer coat on, and
a dusky maiden, dressed in extremely
low decohtle, swinging lazily in a hammock made from a dolapidated liah
net. Of-course the cout may bu rather
threadbare, and may have adorned tbo
person of some dashing socioty man
for several yoars previous, uud also
might have been received in exchange
for a bucket of nulaclians, nnd the low
neck dress may have beon obtained for
services rendorod with a scrubbing
brush on tho kitchen lloor of some
palatini mansion, but still tho tendoncy
to shine oven iu Siwash society ia the
same, und reaches the aamo tall peaks
of absurdity that it does among the
whitfia, Does anyone imagine that
that Indian and his duaky ludy would
tolernto anything liko familiarity from
a couple of their Siwash brr.thein clad
bi common Hour sacks and cocoanut
'matting'" In tho classic language of
tho Chinook jargon the answer would
promptly come: "wake hyiu." The
bustle, the breezy "bangs" and tight
stays have all made their appearance
in the toilet of tho Chinoo'c maiden,
but the mlvnnco of civilization doeB not
mid hero. The mamma of a large and
interesting family, tired of packing
tho papooeo about on a board strapped
to her buck, has purchased a handsome baby carringe, and with it nnd
tho latest youngster, out-rounded by
tho rosti of iho family and a number tit
admiring nnd fawning neighbors,
make* the promenade of Oolumbia
street evory afternoon. All tliis only
goea to prove that our vaunted fashions
are snscoptible of imitation, and that
thi* Siwash far from being tho uu-
pwq.resaivo aud ignorant being which
bs in usually put down for, is, on tlio
contrary, progressive, enterprising nnd
full of adaptability to his surroundings
and tho calls of socioty.
ATTEMPT AT MUEPBU.
A Urn a tin Indian Deliberately Tries to
Murder Uto Kloochman, hat
Luckily raits.
Squamish Charley, a drunken nnd
abandoned Indian, who hns figured
many tiiueB iu the police court for various crimes, has at Inst committed an
action which will relieve the cily of his
presence for a few years to come.
Charley has a cabin in tho swamp
which lias long been notorious ns one
of tho worst in that classic precinct.
At this cabin congregated nil the bad
Indians in the city, for Charley waa not.
at nil fond of good company. Yesterday afternoon un extra supply of whiskey was obtained und all the neighboring tiilicums were invited Io drop in
and join in n friendly glass. The result was that a number uf Shvnshes got
very drunk, but porhnps tho most intoxicated of all was Squamish Charley.
When tho fun was at its height Charley
ordered his kloochman to perform
Borne action, which was evidently distasteful to her, and she refused. Picking up his shot gun and levelling it
direct ut tho woman's breast he ordered her tu do as sho wus bid or ho would
kill her. Sheagain refused, and he pulled tho trigger. The hammer fell
with a sharp click but tho chnrgo did
not explode, as luckily, there hap-
jioiied to be no cap oil the nipple. Failing to find iv enp be pulled tho trigger
several times, but iho gun would not
go oil', ln a transport of rage he lifted the weapon and attempted to strike
tho woman down with tho butt end,
but she sprang back in time to evade
the blow and the gun crashed to the
lloor breaking the stock and rendering
it useless for further execution. Tho
Indians who witnessed this attempt nt
murder becamo alarmed and left the
cabin, declaring they would inform
the police. Charley became frightened
and lett the cabin also, the kloochman
following shortly afterwards. It was
not long beforo constables Carty and
Mooro were on tho track of the Siwash, who, it was learned, was last
seen walking in tho direction of Sapperton. After a hot chase the constables arrived at Sapperton just iu
time to find Squamish Charley had
been ferried across tha rivor. Later
it was ascertained that the kloochman
had gone to tho Indian camp near the
woolen mills and procured a canoe
whicli bIio took to Sapperton ami paddled hot- would-be murdoror into safety on the Brownsville side. It is
thought that Charley is now in safety
on Point Roberts, but he will bo immediately arrested if hu happens to
visit his tiilicums in thia city again,
As thore wore a number of witnesses
to the murderous assault, there will be
no troublo in securing a conviction if
tho rascal is captured. The police
have possession of Iho gun, which is of
tbo old Hudson Bny patlorn. The
chargo in tho musket ia an exceptionally heavy ono.

Great Kxi-ileiuptit at the I'a-Jllnl—The
North    l-tii-ifle   Fleet   Ordered   to
iho su-Miif- Crouuds»»8erlo
ous Trim!) 11- I'ohslblc.
Spoolal to the Columiuan.
Victoria, Mny 29.—-Your correspondent stated briefly yesterday that
Admiral Hcneago had rocoivud orders
to proceed to Behring's Sen. Later in
tho day, this was confirmed. GroatoBt
excitement prevails in tho city ovor
tbo statement, and very littlo elso is
thought of or talked about.
The fleet will consist of the flagship
Swiftsure, warships Amphion nnd
Icnrus, two torpedo boats, and the
man-of-war Champion, which is expected to arrive about June fifteenth.
Particulars of tho proposed cruise aro
vory difficult to obtain, as the naval
officers, naturally reticent, tiio 'more
so now.
At Eaquimalt yesterday tho workmen in the navy yard were up to their
eyes in work completing the equipment
of the two now torpedo boats recently
brought from England by the Amphion
nnd which will be taken north by the
fleet. Tho ships are taking on a large
amount of patent fuel and are making
all the preparations for a long cruise,
and it is commonly believed the war
ships Ivivo been ordered north for the
purpose of protecting British sealers
and the interests of British vessel
owners.
The fleet will form a powerful ono;
nearly nil the ships took purt in the
Egyptian campaign. Tho Swiftsure is
a screw iron ship, iron plated, of G,-
910 toni, 4,970 horsepower, 18 guns.
The Amphion ia a twin screw steam
cruiser built of steel, 3,760, tonB,
5,550 horsepower, 10guns, The Icarus, n sctow composite sloop, 070 tons,
1,230 horsepower, 8 guns. The Champion, a screw corvette, built of steel,
ensed with wood, 2,380 tons, 2,340
horsepower, 14 gutis,
Ex*Govornor Swineford, who was
hore yesterday, says the opening of
Behring's Sea would mean the annihilation of the seas but salvation to
Alaskan commerce, as it would put
down the great Alaska Commercial
Company, which is a cumo to the
country.
Lyman Knapp, tho new governor of
Alaska, also here, states that America
will maintain her position, nnd that
nny si-alecs captured will be taken to
Sitka, and he haa orders to try nny
such sealers according to law. Tlie
question is will he have any to bo
tried.
Considerable anxiety as to the outcome of this pieco of business is felt,
nud tho departure of tho licet will bo
anxiously looked for. It is common
talk that, beforo lottving for Behring's
Sea, tho masters of the various scaling
schooners had definite assurances of
protection, With these assurances in
view, thoy cleared for Behring's Sea
direct. When its considered that the
departure of the fleet for Behring's Sea
may mean a serious breach between
Great Britain and the United States,
the importance of this event may
readily be seen. It is hoped, however,
when the American government sees
that the Imperial government ia de*
tcrmined to protect herowi. interests,
that tho former will qualify her assertion of ownership iu this largo portion
of the high teat.
3 p. in. : A gun bout has just arrived
ntEsquinialtandissalutingthe'Adininl.
It was thought the was H. M. S.
Champion, but n telephone message
from Esquimalt states she is Russian,
namo unknown, und it is believed she
arrived from San Franeisco.
Nothing new in the Behring's Sea
matters.
Later: The namo of tho Russian
gunboat is the Kreysser.
