For the benefit of such of our
readers as may contemplate going to
Oklahoma, we hare with much care
and circumspection prepared a list
of those agricultural implements
whioh the exigencies of soil, climate,
and society there suggest ss most
to be desired, Tho list is as follows:
Monoy enough to take you thore.
One pistol, Hoino whiskoy. Another
pistol. Some more whiskey. A
long box. Money enough to bring
you baok in the box.—Washington
Post. 	
It was not many years ago, says
an exchange, that the cotton-wood
tree was considered useless for the
purposes of lumber. To-day it is
crowding white pine out of the
market .for certain purposes, and
large fortunes aro being made all
along the Mississippi river out of
this wood, wliich -was once despised
as much in that field as a garfish
always has been among fishermen.
In Now Orleans white pine is worth
"""-' a thousand.while yellow cotton-
wood brings §65.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
"My dear," said Mr. Buggies,
"did you say this was a tenderloin
^teakl" "Yes." "Well, my dear,
maybe it was." And the accent on
the "was" was so strong that Mrs.
Buggies dissolved in tears.
Orinisonbeck—I see that they
toasted your friend Bacon the other
night. Yeast—Is that a faotl"
"Yes; I read it in last night's
paper." At the alumni dinner, I
suppose 1" "No, it was out in
Wyoming." "Toasted him out in
Wyoming!" "Yes; bnraed him in
efligy, you know,"— Yonhers Statesman.
Of the great "trinity of the anti-
corn laws league," Villiers, Oobden,
and Bright, only tbo first and oldest
survives. Of the three, Bright wu
always the most composed and
methodical. When Oobden was
anxious and speculative, and Villiers
sometimes fretful and impatient,
Bright, the youngest of the three,
and tho boldest and ealmest oharaoter of them all, was in council the
man  of  soundest judgment.—&
Everybody is interested in the
Bubject of hospitals snd their management, and Canadians will be
interested in the news that the
Royal Victoria hospital it Montreal
is likely to be one of the best institutions of its kind. Allowing for
the parental fondness of the architect
for this pet scheme, there is promise
in Ills words., "When completed
there will not be another hospital
in tbe world like the Victoria," The
bete noir of hospitals of several
storeys is the foul and infected air
which will persistently escape from
one ward and pestilentially walk in
darkness up the staircase to another.
Mr. Jlaxon Snell is going to obviate
this by* open air bridges to connect the wards. The development
of his design will be watched with
interest.—Ego. Those who will have
the planning of the new hospital to
be built in this eity before long
might profitably make a note of the
above
An exchange has this reminiscence
of an interesting incident in the life
of Michel Eugene Ohevreul, the distinguished French chemist who died
in Paris on the ninth of last mouth
at the advanced age of 102 years
and seven months: One day during the siege of Paris shells from the
Prussian guns began to fall near the
museum of the Jardin des Plantes,
where M, Ohevreul then had bis
laboratory. He sat down and wrote
King Wilhelm a penonal letter, in
which he protested in the name of
science against the shelling of the
garden and museum Under his charge
and that if continued it would be
an act of vandalism. The king
appreciated this appeal, and the
guns were immediately pointed in
another direction. Then the king
sent the letter to a scientific journal,
of which ho has been a subscriber
since its foundation. When the war
was over the letter, translated back
into Frenoh, was printed in 'Paris,
and great was the sensation whioh
it'    "
The following were recently
among the written answers in
examinations on the scriptures by
her majesty's inBpeotot-s of schools :
"Who was Moses I" "He was an
Egyptian. He lived ina hark made
of bullrushes, and he kept a golden
earf and worshipt braizen snakes,
and he het nothin' but awahles and
manner for forty years. He was
kort by the 'air of his 'ed while ridin'
under n bow of a tree, and he was
killed by his son Abslon as he was
hanging from the bow. His end
wns peace." "What do you know
of'the patriarch Abraham I" "He
was the father of Lot and had tew
wives. One was called Hismale
and tother Haygur. He kep one at
home and he hurried the tother into
the dessert, where she became a
pillow of salt in the daytimo
ana a pillow of fire at nito."
"Write an account of the Good
Samaritan". "A certain man went
down from Jerslen* to Jeriker and
ho fell among thawns, and the
thawns sprang up and choked him,
Whereupon he gave tuppins to the
hoast snd uid take care on him and
put him on his hono bass. And ho
passed on the hother sido."—London Timet.

A THURIBLE FIGHT.
San Antonio, Tex., May __..— NewB
has readied here to-day which confirms
the report of desperate fighting at
Guanayuata, Mexico, in whioh 30 soldiers and policemen and 200 rioters
wero killed. The trouble arose from
the imprisonment of five Jesuit priests
who have- been delivering seditious
sermons. The populace endeavored to
secure them, and a fight occurred. The
priests are still in jail,

A FRIEND AT COURT.
. San Francisco, May 2.—Congressman Morrow returned from Washington last night. Uo says that the Pacific coast will find a warm friend in
President Harrison. Regarding the
position of public printer, he thinks it
more than likely tbat Honry Z. Osborne, proprietor of the Los Angeles
Express, will be appointed. Mr. Morrow has no doubt that there will.be an
extra session of congress in October.
The extra session will be made imperative by the amount of preliminary
work the fifty-first congress will have
to accomplish before it settles down to
the actual affairs of the country.

San Francisco, April 2.—On the
arrival of the schooner Carrie A. Lane,
from Baltimore, last night, Capt. F. A.
Dyer swore out warrants for the arrest
of seven of his crew, on charge of insubordination. The seamen were arretted by the marshal and lodged in
the city prison. The sailors atate that
after the schooner rounded the Horn a
gale was encountered which caused
them to be on duty three dayi and
hights. They were conpletely worn
out and refused to work further unless
the captain consented to turn back.
The sohooner was rounded, but when
fino weather wai again encountered,
the captain again changed his coune
and headed for this port. The accused
seamen claim that they were treated
cruelly hy the mate, Thomas E. Moore.

Great excitement prevailed among the
students iu the college adjoining when
it was learned. Two brothers, Ignatius and Michiul Hillain, were in the

Ottawa. May 1.—Mr. Man left for
homo to-night. Tho passing of the
bill providing for the appointment of
three county court judges for British
Columbia is due to his energetic efforts.
Messrs. Prior and Barnard leave tomorrow.
The eondltion of Mr. Chisholm is
unimproved.

There was a rather lively debate in
tho house of commons to-day on the
Northwest land subsidies. Mr. Dewdney uid that the total number of
acres there granted to railway companies   reached   36,000,000.     The
area of the agricultural lauds in Manitoba and the North West he estimated
at 135,000,000 acres. The subsidies
were passed.
The bill authorising the construction
of the Canadian Pacifio Bailway short
line link by the government from Salisbury to Moncton, N. B., was given
tlio six month's hoist in tho senate tonight, Senator Miller's amendment
being carried by yeas 22, nays 11.
Senator Abbott in a speech declared
that the government was pledged to
build the line. Tho result caused almost a sensation.
In the house Mr. Mulock urged the
government to remove tho ill-feeling
throughout the country by referring
the Jesuits' Estate Act to the courts.
Sir. John Macdonald laughed and in
reply said to the effect that it was out
of the question for the government to
test the constitutionality of tbe Jesuits'
Estates Act in view of the overwhelm*
ing pronunciation of parliament on
this question. He felt confident, however, that an appeal would be mado
by other parties.

' The World is in a position to state
that Col. A Gibson, representing a
number of capitalists in England, has
made application to tbe proper authorities for permission to dredge the
Fraser River for geld for a distance of
45 milea. The part of the river bed to
which this application applies, lies between BoBton Bar and Cornish Bar.
Between tho points indicated, the
Fraser Biver passes—so the application
says—for about 20 miles through canyons in which it is impossible for any
machinery to work. A good doal of
English capital is being put into the
enterprise. This appears lo be only
one of several similar schemes to
dredge the Fruser. Another company

CROSS-EXAMINED.
Parnell Undergoes a Close Cross-
Examination To-day on Many
Important Subjects.
Sentences of O'Connor, Conlon, and
Br. Tanner and Father Manning are Confirmed.
The King of Holland's Health Improves and the Bulership is
Bestored to Him.
THE PAKNELL COMMISSION.
London, May 1.-On Cross-examination Mr. Parnell denied that tho Irish
World had ever collected money tor
the Irish parliamentary parry. The
paper, he said, !.ad been hostile to the
Irish party and  himself since  1888,
Sir Richard Webster here produced
extracts from the Irish World praising the actions of Mr. Parnell in' parliament after 1882. Sir Charles Russell produced extraots ttom the samo
paper adverse to Mr. Parnell. Mr.
Parnell admitted his aquaintance with
Mooney but did not know whether he
had contributed to the parliamentary
fund or not. He had no comumni-
cation with Patrick Ford since 1881.
Mr. Parnell emphatically denied that
his Irish scheme had ever included a
ooalition with the Fenians. The order
to expel the landlords, ho' said, was
certainly aimed to destroy landlordism, but not to drive individuals horn
the country. He had never had any
idea of resorting to illegal means. His
testimony throughout denied all knowledge of any manifestoes counselling
violence, but it was no part of his duty
to exclude sny ono from the league on
account of their antecedents. On the
contrary, ho wanted to include all
Irishmen.
DECUBITUS ADVANCING.
London, May 1.—In view of the
pending release of large amounts of
money by the British government in
repayment of the.old consols, Canadian
in common with other good securities,
are advancing in price, Dominion issues having risen from one-half to two
per cent during the past week. British Columbia and Quebeo securities
aro up 1J per cent. There is a similar
movement in Toronto, Quebeo city,
Winnipeg and Ottawa loans, Grand
Trunk Railway securities have advanced despite the bad effect of the Hamilton accident. Oanadian Pacific Railway. Btook is in strong favor and business done at 51£. Hudson's Bay Co.'s
shares have been bought oa rumors of
a pending division of,the capital into
two classes,'one secured on the lands
and the other on the trading business.
These rumors are at least premature.
PARNELL    CROSS-EXAMINED.
London, May 2.—In the special
commission to-day Sir Richard Webster continued his cross-examination
of Mr. Parnell, eliciting a number of •
positive denials which everybody was
expecting, and some interesting affirmations. The witness declared he
never knew of Nolan, the fenian, until
last year, and said that in the speech
be delivered in the house of commons
in 1883, in reply to Mr. Forster, he
repudiated evory fenian or dynamiter*
who olaimed connection with the - j
league.
tie cross-examination of Parnell
continued. Parnell admitted that
Condon was connected with the Manchester murders. Ho was chairman
of the reception committee at Washington. The witness bad always repudiated the* dynamite and physical
force party in America, and denounced
them in the house of commons. He
was not aware that the Cincinnati Commercial Gazette reported verbatim a
speech he made at Cincinnati, in
whioh he is said to have referred
to the severance of the lost link between Great Britain and Ireland, or
that the report was like that in the
Irish World. Parnell admitted
that ho had not found fault
with the past action ot the in vincibles,
but he quoted from his speeches and
his manifestoes of 1881 denouncing outrages and unconstitutional acts by
Irishmen.
DILLON'S GOOD WOEK.
London, May 2.—On Tuesday last
John Dillon addressed a monster meeting at'Melbourne. A thousand per
sons subscribed to the Home Rule

Buccess on his Australian trip.

spite of the opposition of the agent.

The Hague, May 2,—Both chambers of the Statea General to-day unanimously voted to restore to King
William his power to govern Holland,
which was placed in the bands of are-
gency while the king was ill and unable to rule. Cheers followed the announcement of the chamber's action.

I'.ni-i iSfitish (Mtnnbian
Ttiimit-iy livening. Hay '2, 1S80.
On the fourtoonth of Muy the
ratepayers of Victoria will voto on
two by-laws for city improvements,
pledging the credit of tho city for an
aggregate amount of $85,000. Ono
by-law provides for a loan of $45,-
000 to be expended in street nnd
bridge improvements and in enlarging the area of Ross Bay cemetery.
The by-law furthor details tlio
streets on whicli the monoy shall be
expended. The other measure, entitled "The Street Railway Guarantee
■ By-law, 1889," is for the purposo of
enabling the city to guarantee interest at the rate of lire per cent.
per annum on tho bonds of the
National Electric Tramway and
Lighting Company to the amount of
$40,000 for a period of twenty years.
These by-laws have the support of
the press, and will undoubtedly
carry. Neither Victoria nor Vancouver intend to stagnate, it is apparent, if a wise exercise of their
borrowing powers will keep them
"moving on."
Our American brethren just now
are celebrating in befitting manner
the centennial of the inauguration
"one hundred years ago" of the first
president and "father of his country," the immortal George Washington. With pardonable enthusiasm,
old reminiscences and associations
are being revived, tiuie-honored,
sacred relics and mementoes are
being "dug up" and paraded, and
the pure flame of patriotism is being
fanned into a blaze by poet, orator,
and penny-a liner. Tuesday was
the great day of the celebration, and
New York, where Washington's
solemn inauguration took place in
April, 1780, the central point of the
demonstration. Such an occasion
as this celebration is well fitted to
arouse the liveliest feelings of
national enthusiasm in the American breast, while we, wbo also delight, with all civilized nations, to
do honor to the noble memory of the
only and original Washington—tbat
grand patriot and lovable character—
are forcibly reminded that a great
nation has been ''born in t% dny,"
and, being our kinsmen, we are
proud and can rejoice with them.
If Washington were in the flesh today, it may be that he would witness
a "grevious falling away" from the
simple integrity that actuated his
own noble deeds; but it may be
questioned if he would have much
time to observe this amid the
astounding evidences of progress and
development which one short century has graven upon the face of his
country. In spite, too, of political
disingenuousness nnd personal lapses,
be would doubtless find in the
America of to-day millions of true
hearts, prepared to "do and die" for
their country, if the occasion required. The memory of a Washington, still revered and held in highest
honor by his grateful countrymen,
bespeaks as much,
According to the Winnipeg Commercial, a satisfactory state of things
with respect to. immigration, beginning with last year,   has  set  in,
which is doing and promising groat
things forthe "prairieprovince"and
its -.sister  territories.   For. a time
after the collapse of  the 1881-82
boom, observes the Commercial, the
difficulty of catching the "main ingredient . in the soup of progress,"
the settler, seemed almost insuperable.   Now, it is added, tbe tide of
immigration   from eastern'Canada,
at  least, is  sweeping towards the
Canadian Northwest   The cause, or
rather causes, of this tide of settlement turning in favor of tho Northwest may be looked for and found
in various directions, says the Commercial,   Tho following explanation
of these causes may bo marked with
profit by those in uny way having
influence or   responsibility in the
the matter of securing immigration
for this province and for the various
cities and districts:   "In  tho first
place,    M-ini tobans,    while    they
growled  and   fumed   plenty over
securing no reasonable share o* the
settlement^ which has been sweeping
to the west  for years, never, made
any direct  off'ort  to  secure -their
share until within   the   last  three
years or so. Of course tbe Dominion
government, the O.P.R. land department, tlie Cnnnda Northwest Land
Oompany and other corporations interested in the oountry, made efforts
in the direction of settlement, but
the people of the province were absolutely inactive, and could agree upon
no concerted action, while tho provincial   government then in powor
were as inactive as tlie people, and
tha head thereof openly stated that
Ibey, tho government, did not want
settlers, as they were no immediate
source of revenue to the province as
a province.   It was folly to expect
immigration   under   suoh   circumstances, and  a  great change was
necessary before it could be expected.
That change haa come, and some of
Its fruits are now being had in the
thousands of settlers who have this
located , in  the   province.
has, during the  past three years,
been working either as combinations
of municipalities, as organizations* of
districts, or  in   some   other way;
while the present local government,
wbatevor other promises they may
have failed to fulfil, have certainly
redeemed thoir pledge as to a vigor-'
ous immigration policy. It is beyond
ii doubt  that   this combination of
ellbrt  bas been tho main power in
turning  the  tido  of  immigration
towards  Manitoba, and tho power
bas been all the greater on account
of tho earnestness of the effort, an
earnestness which could not always
bo accredited  to   the  land-owning
corporations,   who   formerly   made
such efforts, as frequently speculation more than a desire for colonization was tho prompting power with
them,"    The Commercial further
adds:   "Another factor in favor of
Manitoban settlement k to be found
in the fact tbat the Northwest has
fewer  bitter  opponents  than formerly.   While   this  country  was
bound  down   by O.P.R. monopoly,
the Grand Trunk, Northern Pacific,
and other railway companies wero
interested in diverting immigration
to other fields.   Now they have an
entrance  to   tbo   Northwest, and
havo  not only ceased their opposition, but are to a great extent interested   in  drawing settlement here.
The cheap excursions to tho east of
last   winter, for   whioh we arc indebted  to railway competition, let
loose  over  eastern   Canada  hundreds of the very best immigration
agents,   namely the  formers, who
within a few years have made progress and  laid   the foundations of
wealth in Manitoba, and the result
is that in many portions of the east,
tlie youth and enterprise of the agricultural population comprehend the
great advantages this .country offers,
and the present season's arrivals are
only the beginning . of  a stream of
desirable  settlers, that will make
this province and the territories to
tbe   wost   in   a   very few years a
power in the population and wealth
of Canada.   Now that immigration
affairs are moving ,in the right direction, the aim should be to keep
them  so.     Our  local government
must not relax in tho least the vigor
of their immigration policy, and the
people  in local organizations must
second the provincial efforts.   Now
that we have  railway competition,
there  is   no fear but the railways
will do their share of the work, and
the  more railways we get to come j
into our country the more numerous '
will be the interests at work in our
behalf.   The   tide   is  undoubtedly
turned in the interests of Manitoba,
and   Manitobans   will   have themselves to blame   if   it   is  not kept
flowing freely in that direction." It
is  tho  old story:   "No pains, no
gains."   "Heaven helps those that
helps themselves,"   Iu the foregoing
very  reasonable   and   instructive
argument  from   effect  to cause is
much that we in British Columbia
should mark and inwardly digest, if
we wish to catch the "main ingredient in tho   soup of   progress," to
use  a  borrowed "figure.   Without
this  ingredient,   the   broth  must
inevitably fizzle.    Let us learn from
and   act  upon   the  experience of
others.   This   is  the part of  true
wisdom.

EMBALMING THE DEAD.
The Auoteut Method Far Superior
to That of To-Bay1.
. Prom tho point of pecuniary gain to uu-
dertakera embalming has no advantage
over the Icing methods commonly employed,
aays the New York Press. Its superiority
ovor tho icing custom is claimed because ot
the protection afforded to undertakers spc*
' dally and tho publio generally against infection of any disease with whioh the de-
; ceased may havo died.
Tho unquestionable adoption of embalming processes for keeping bodies during
transportation and of publio men whose
bodies are kept in stato for protracted
periods has within tho past few yoars become of pronounced frequency, and it is
somewhat pertinent testimony to tho truth
of tho,l nothing new under tho sun " adage
that this prehistoric praotice after lying in
oblivion for ages should be renovated and
clothed by modorn science and brought to
renewed activity beneath tho critical judgment of tho current century.
Even yet in common thinking wo havo
not learned to disassociate tho term from
its memories ns a lost art; and with the
mention of tho word tho fancy instinctively
pictures vague visions of shriveled mum-
' mics curiously swathed in discolored linens,
of pyramids ond obelisks covorod with
hieroglyphs, and of tho superstitious rites
anil ceremonies belonging to that dim and
mystorious past whon tho worship of Osiris
ami Iais and all the tutelary gods was flourishing on the banks of; tho Nile.
The imagination' flits through the long
vista of thirty-six centuries to tho time when
tho Sphinx and pyramids woro young, and
wo aeom to porceivo thoKolohyte and hiB
assistants, engaged in -their, gloomy and
Bomber occupation .within tho dread pre-
' eincta oftho Necropolis.
With tho ancient Egyptians thia artificial
preservation of tho dead was fraught with
dread importance, for, according to their
beliefs, the soul hold such relations with
its earthly envelope that although freed by
death, it would, after a eyolo of ten thousand years,- re-enter it, provided tho body
was ready; to receivo it, but if not tho
migrations of tho spirit wore endless, .and
it became a homeless wanderer in tho
netherworld.
The rite acquired further religious sanction with the Egyptians, who seem to havo
been tho innovators of tho art, by tho
legend of Osiris, whoso body was embalmed by his son Amebis, Isis having
found tho body after his death by tho hands
of Typhon. All classes woro embalmed
and also tho noered animals, though these
by simpler and loss expensive processes
than men.
' Among the peculiar and apparently unex*
plainable customs was that by which tho
corpso of a raalo was given at once into tbe
chnrgo of tho embalmora, while females
wero kept until decomposition had begun..
Thoso engaged in the work of mummy-
making formed a distinct caste, the calling
boing hereditary, and its secretsv transmitted from father to son; thoy had thoir
homos within the boundaries of tho como*
tories, and their society was shunned as
comiomning.
Tho lowest order of the class called paras-
chltic were regarded with particular malignance- and considered to be accursed spirits
predestined to their work in penance of sins
committed during a former existence. Thoy
wero hopelessly unclean, and to touch thoir
person or to enter thoir abode was defilement. Their duty it was to mako tho in*
anion In tho body preparatory to its disem-
bowolmont, after it had boon marked with a
reed pon by a scribe. Immediately upon
tho accomplishment of thoir duty they wore
pursued and polled with stones to tho door
of tholr hut by tho frionds of tho deceased.
A higher division, termed tarachcnt-io, removed tho entrails, with the exception of
the kidneys and tho heart. Tho removal of
tho luttor organ was supposed to destroy
all possibility of the soul's future residence
in tho body, and to sentence It to eternal
misery—it was the heart which was weighed
and judged of its sins when tho soul camo
oofoid Osiris. Tho brain waa drawn ont
through tho nostrils, and after the cavities
Imd been washed in palm wino the body was
steeped in natron for seventy days, after
which It passed to the charge of tho Kol-
chytte, tho highest order of embalmers, who
had ehargo of tho tombs and masses for the
dead, and woro regarded moro favorably
tban the parasohitm or tarachenUe; to them
belonged the really preservative work/
which was done by filling the brain and abdominal cavities with Bpicos, aromatic herbs
and various Ingredients, tho exact nature
and proportions of which were carefully
kept from general knowlodgo. Tbo Incision
was tbon sewed up, tbe body tightly bandaged and wrapped in linens, accural by
gums, aftor which it was ready for sepulture. But the mummies wero often kept in
their former homes. for long periods beforo
puM-and on occasions of festivity wei*
introduced into tho scenes of gayety to
striko an average and remind the revelers
of tho transient lot or man.
The elaborate process outlined abovo cost
a sliver talent, or about 92,000, and was
availablo only to the woolthy. Cheaper
methods in vogue among thb poor are recorded by Herodotus, in which Kedrion, or
cedar oil, was injected into the viscera, the
body washed In myrrh, soaked In a solution
of natron or salt petur for tho usual soventy
days, smeared with gum* and bound up.
to somo instances tho soles ot tha feet
were removed and placed upon the breast.
Tbls was dono that tho sacred halls of tho
judgment temple might not he defiled when
the deceased was called before OBlrls. As
the custom of profuso feet-washing was
not pt-Aolloca In Palestine, this perhaps, was
not altogether a superstition.
Tbo origin of tho art antedates historical
record. Mummies are referred to in the
hloroglyps by tho word ft'S«hu,» The
bodies of Cheops, Mycorinus and otberaof
the Fourth Dynasty, and UJs. recorded thlij
tho body of tho patriarch Jacob was thus
proparcd.
Embalming was also practiced' by tho ancient Persians, who used wax; by tlio Assyrians, who employed honey, and by tho
Jews, with whom spices seemed the popu
lar method, the body of Jesus being so
treated boforo burial.
Although tho art of thus preserving tbe
dead wob known to tho early Christians
who embalmed tho bodies of somo of tho
martyrs, and even later to the peoplo of tho
Canary Isles, aftor tho dissolutioiiof tho
Egyptian dynastyand the decadence of the
Aryan roliglons, it gradually faded from
tho knowledge of tho now civilization and
found placo among tho lost arts.
Through the ensuing ages it remained
in comparative oblivion until the nineteenth
century, when, in 1834, Gannai discovered
the preservative properties of equal partB
of acetate and alumina, and the- later development of arsenic by Tranchinl revived the
practice of embalming bodies requiring to
be kept for short periods.
Tho recognition of the sanitary advantages derived from the effectual destruction of tho disease germs gavo it favor until, with the introduction of tho chlorides of
zino, mercury, aluminium and other salts of
antisepio nature, togothor with solutions of
creosote, carbolic acid and eresylie acid,
various compound fluids woro formed, and
tho praotico of embalming bodies for transportation camo into common favor with tho
more reputable "undertakers, and to-day is
gaining favor as a genoral substituto for
tho former method of freezing.
The modern embalming methods havo littlo in common with tbo ancient processes,
which imposed so much mutilation of tho
body. Now, with instruments, et modorn
surgery, it Is a comparatively simple and
cleanly process, A simplo puncturo, sufficient to admit tho nozzlo of a small injector,
is mado abovo somo of tho principal arteries,
usually the femoral, and a quantity of fluid
varying according to tho length of timo it
is desired to prosorvo the body, is injected. Tho fluid enters Into tbo circulatory syBtem and penotrates tho minutest
arterial ramifications, forming wlththo tissues now chemical compounds whieh oro
imputresciblo. The effects are immediate;
decomposition is arrested and the germs of
contagion destroyed, and not temporarily
neutralized, as is tho caso when freezing is
employed.
The processes of to-day do not preserve
tho body indefinitely, as the ancient methods did, but as this is not required by modern sentiment It moots all tho requirements,
and its sanitary advantages placo it in the
field as a rival to cremation for the future
method of disposing of tho dead.
As tho modem method preserves in tho*
body all tho softness and flush of life, scientific onterpriso, if turned toward the subject, might effect a compromise between the
present and past by whloh.our dead might
bo forovor preserved with all of lifo's appearand to ornament the balls of their former residences and to replaco tho present
automatic figures with ones which have
history and once moro mako objects, ghost
ly to our forefathers, tho play things of their
children. Will this bo tho seed of this flower which bloomed before the Christian era
and has been transplanted in the present century, to tho soil of modern science 1    .
ORIGIN OF NAMES.
The Curious  Sources of Many Common
English Surnames.
Not only countries but counties and towns
were a fruitful source ot surnames, remarked Prof. H. H. Eglcston in a recent
lecture. John from Cornwall bocamo John
Cornwall or Cornish. Richard who lived
near a pieco of woodland was spoken of as
Richard at or near tho wood, originating tho
surname Atwood, or John living noar a hill
becamo John Hill. So with Undorhill, At*
well, oto. John living noar a clump of oaks
was John atten oaks, abbreviated into
Noakes, or William who had pitched his
tont or cabin near a notable ash tree was
known as William at tho. ash or William atr
ten ash, which easily drifted Into Nash. So,
too, Thomas who lived near a small stream
(or in Anglo-Saxon a becket) was Thomas at
tho becket, and thus was named tho martyr
fhornas a'Becket. Tho most common terminations of English surnames takon from
places are fora, ham, led and (on. Ford is
from tho Saxon faran, to go, signifying tho
placo' whore a stream oould bo crossed.
In- tho namo of Bhakspearo's birthplace
wo havo a memento of threo different
eras of English history, vis., tho periods of tho occupancy by the old Britons, tho
Romans and tho Saxons. Strut Is an abbreviation of strata (street),the name bywhich
tho great Roman *;oads word known. Ford
tolls us that one of these roads crossed a
stream, and Avon ie the name which tho old
Britons or Celts gave to tho streams.
Tho word lea, leah, or lelgh signifying a
partially wooden field, served as tho ending
for many surnames, suoh as Horsley, Cowley, Ashley, Oakley, Lindloy and Berkley,
or Birohley, Hay or haw moans a hedge, and
this has given us Hayes, Haynes, Haloy,
Haywood, Hawos, Haworth, Hawthorn,
Houghton, or Houghton.
Occupations, too, havo afforded an endless array of surnamea This method was
used by tho Romans In such names as
Fabrlcus (smith,) Pictor (painter,) Agricola
(farmer). In England a skillful hunter
would adopt that as his surname, and equally so with iho carpenter, joiner, sawyer,
baker or butcher. ..    '
Personal traits and complexions, too,
gavo rise to surnames. From tbe termor
wo havo tho names Stout, Strong, Long,
Longman, Longfellow; and from tho latter,
Brown, Black, eto. Some mental and moral traits were also used to denote surnames.
Richard the First, of England, was better
known as Richard of the hon heart. Tbo
noxt step would be to derive from this
quality tho surname lion.
EXPIRED FROM RAGE.
A  Newspaper Man Truthfully Describes
Bis Experience on the Prairie.
Snake stories are In season, and wo propose to tell ono literally truo, says tho Atlanta Journal Wo wero riding ovor tho unsettled prairies of Kansas with a companion, when wo camo suddenly upon a largo
prairio rattlesnake Tho growth of grass
all ovor tho prairio was rank nud thick, and
fully six or eight inches high, oxcopt In tho
littlo flat or depressed spots where tho wator had stood until late In tho spring; on
thoso it was short and scant It was ono of -
thoso partially bare places, perhaps thirty
feet square, that wo come upon the unulio.
Wo took out our rovolvor, and woro about
to shoot at it,..but our companion said:
" Don't shoot.'! Wo -hod wasted most of
our loads shooting at prairie-chickens, otc.,-
and might need what wo had loft for othor
aamo,
Thero was not a stick largo enough for a
riding switch within a mile, but there wero
Umcstono rocks hero and thero on tho
prairie, and he said If wo would koSptho
snako tn tho bare' placo ho would ride a
short distance baok and get a rock whoro
ho had seen several. Wo undertook tho
task, but tho snako was vicious, and bent
on getting out into tho high grass. Finding
that ho would got out If ho had to pass
undor our horso, wo drow back a
fow steps and flrod at him. - The ball'
struck and out up tho ground a few
Inches beyond hlm; but tho dischargo
scorned to chungo his ontiro disposition and
action. He Wriggled to a small "resin
wood" growing in tho baro spot, and coiie.l
himself tightly around It. By this timo
our companion had roturncd with a rock,
ahd, dismounting, we throw it at tho snako.
It struck tho ground a few Inohes beyond
him, and ho neyor moved. .
Anproaching cautiously we drew away
the 'stone with tho erookod handle of on
umbrella and again throw tt at tho snako.
This time It did not quite reach him, but
struck tho ground near him and rolled over
so as to touch him lightly. Still, ho hover
moved or rattled.
With somo tear of danger wo. quietly
touched him with tho ond of tho umbrella,
and as he still remained motionless and
quiet wo cautiously unwound him from his
coll around the weed. Ho was limp as a rag,
but entirely dead—dead all ovor; not even
his toil gave any signs of vitality. Thom
waa not a bruise about hlm, and cortitluly
wo had uot hurt blm with cither ball or
rook,* We could ouly conclude that In hiB
rage or fright when fired at he had bitten
and thus killed himself, .-*#

Weal te Headquarters.
This morning a drunken fisherman
climbed up to Mr. Thos. Mowat's
oflice, under the impression that the
inspector's office was a sort of fishermen's home, and lay down on the floor
and went to sleep. Hia slumbers wore
soon disturbed and he was ordered to
leave, which request was politely but
firmly refused. The police were called
and marched him to the lockup, where
he gave vent to tho large quantity of
whiskey stored in htm by singing "The
Sweet Bye and Bye," tn toneB loud
enough to disturb the officials in the
government offices across   tho   street
return the othor two left and shortly
after the defoudant discovered that a
{-air of pants and a watch were missing.
He thereupon found the complainant,
who accused the other man of
stealing them, and promised to
help to find him. After ao unavailing
Bearch he denied his former statement
and aaid ho knew nothing about it and
a quarrel ensued, during wliich the
alleged aBaault took place. Theso
shortly are tho facts, and aa far at11
know the woman haa nothing to do
with the case.
Mr. A. J. McColl, barrister, was assaulted last night by Edward (.old in a
seemingly moat cowardly manner. The
facts as related by Mr. McColl aro as fol- j
lows: He was returning home after a
hard day's works at tho asBizes, and
when almost opposite Mr. H. V.
Edmund's residence he was suddenly
struck from behind, the blow falling
heavily on the back of his head. Mr,
McColl was partially stunned by tho
blow, and beforo ho had timo to recover the blows woro repeated-follow*
hit* each other in rapid succession.
The night was dark and Mr, McColl
could not distinguish whether or not
moro than ono person waa engaged io
tho assault Thinking he wus assailed
by footpads he called for help and ran
in the direction uf Blackwood street,
at the corner uf whioh ho met Mr. J.
C. Armstrong and two men. A moment later Edward Gold came up and
attempted to repeat the assault, but
was proventod from doing so hy Mr.
Armstrong and (he other people wbo
had been attracted by the sounds of
the disturbance It was not until
Gold came under the gas light that
Mr. McColl learned who his assailant
wns. A warruut was immediately
issued for Gold's arrest, and Mr.
Moresby took the case in hand and
served it. At tho polico court this
morning Mr. Bole, Q.C., appeared for
the prosecution, and asked that the
caso be remanded till to-morrow, as
Mr McColl was busy with the assizes.
Oapt, Pittendrigh, tho presiding magistrate, granted tho remand aud Gold
was held in bail to appear. The assault arose out of a difficulty in Buttle-
in" some legal matters.
i'ol. Prior's KeqncMl.
Col. Prior, M. P., had un interview
with Sir John Macdonald a few days
ago and urged the granting of a Bub-
sidy to the Victoria, Saanich and New
Westminster Railway and Ferry Oo.
The proposed line will run from Victoria almost due north to Shoal Harbor, a distance of twenty miles; thenco
a ferry will run to Point Roberts on
the mainland, from which place lines
will extend to Vancouver, Westminster
and Blaine, Washington Territory.
Tlie company ask for a subsidy of $6,-
400 a mile for tho railway and 830,000
a year for twenty years to maintain the
ferry ByBtem.
A "Boom" In Canneries.
Dr. Rubs, who has been up north for
the past three years, and who has juat
returned to San Francisco on the U.S.
Bteamer Pinta, referring to the salmon
fisheries of Alaska, informed a press
representative that owing to the remarkable salmon catch a year ago there
it a veritable "boom" in canneries thia
year. At the mouth of almost every
rivor there is a canning establishment.
The rivers are almost alive with fish,
and iu all probability the catch thia
year will be an enormous one. ln
Ward's cove and Lnngow's narrows a
gentleman stated that the stream is
like a solid mass of salmon, they are
so numerous.
Huullicrn Bailway Grading.
The grading of tho Southern Railway line continues to make most satis*
factory progress, Seven and a half
miles of tho road bed are now ready
for the rails, and besides this a largo
amount of ditching haa been accomplished to drain marshy spots along the
right of way. Another engineering
party leaves on Saturday to work on
the section adjoining the international
boundary, and the graders will attack
this laat division ns soon as the work
is prepared from them. Mr. B. Douglas, president of the Southern Rait-
way, inapeoted the work on Tuesday,
and expressed groat satisfaction wi'h
25 tons ot tmgiu.   a  large  "«.«■;*•'I t£^

The water cart made its appearance
yesterday and kicked up a fearful dust.
The rain to-day ably seconded the efforts of the sprinkler, and if the contractor can manage with this assistance,

quieting the uneasy soil, will be con-
Mderered well spent.
Messrs, Bourehier & Higgins, in
December 1888, purchased six lots in

therefor the sum of $60 each, or a
total of $540. Yesterday they succeeded iu disposing nf theso identical

struck up for the first dance. Tho

misses who ran hither nnd thither
anxiously looking for a partner to
guide them through the terpsichorean
exercises. The littlo boya were more
shy, and it was only nfter some laborious coaxing that a fow of them were
persuaded to take tho floor. Tlio
May queen and ex-queen, who were
caviliered by the chief and assistant
chief of tho fire department, _ led off
the dance. Other dances followed in
rapid succession till 10 o'olook, when
the little ones were bundled home aud
the '-youth and beauty" of the Royal
City took the floor and continued the
ball with untiring energy for a few
hours longer. The manner in which
the wholo arrangements of the day
were carried out reflects the highest
credit on the executive ability of tho
Hyacks, and to them the publio generally are indebted. for the many
pleasures so heartily enjoyed. Well
done Hyacks!
The Opera House was generously
placed at the use «f the Hyacks, free
of cost, by Mr. A. M. Herring, the
proprietor. The Gas Co. kindly furnished the gas free.

Wednesdag, May 1.
Regina vs Hanley: G. D. Brymner,
agent Bank of Montreal, sworn, said:
The bills produced are not genuine,
J. C. Dockerill, accountant of the
Bank of British Columbia, also denied
their genuineness.
John McLaren of the Vancouver
police force, aworn: I arrested the
prisoner on the 12th of March; 1 fouud
certain chemicals in hia possession
which I here produce; a man named
Watson pointed out prisoner to me, I
had conversation with him with res*
pect to tho money; I took him to Mrs.
Franks' to seo if she would identify
him; she recognised hia pipe and his
pocket book beforo she did the man;
1 partly searched his trunk on that
night; 1 found these chemicals which I
produce,   and I   found  also  a  false
John Watson, swum, ssid: I saw
the prisoner previous to meeting
him in Franks' store; some time in
March; he passed a $5 bill; I gave
evidence in this case at the police
court at Vancuuver; the 85 bill waB
produced there, ahd I recognised it as
the one passed off on Mrs. Franks.
Moses Gibson, sworn: I know tho
accused; I have known him for nearly
nino years; I keep a hotel; the accused
lived at my hotel; he and I had supper
together on the 3rd of March; it was
about G. 15 o'clock; after tea tho accused
took a, walk out and returned about
9.30o'clock. ":"   "'""  " -'I
To McColl; I keep a medium class
house; I was on trial in tho police
court at Vancouver for a criminal
offence; 1 was found guilty of selling
whiskey to Indians; the accused lived
in my house about fivo months; he is .
carpenter by trade; he bore' a good
oharactor in the east; I knew him for a
number of years before he came to
British Columbia.
This concluded the evidence in the
case.
After a brief address by Mr. Atkinson, his lordship charged the jury at
some length. He remarked that forgery did not merely consist in putting
another man's name to a document,
but in endeavoring to give the appearance of truth to mere deceit and falsehood. "The first thing for you to do
iu this caso is to enquiro if this is a
genuine bill I If it is not a genuine
bill, did the accused utter it with a
guilty knowledge ° In all these cases
there are eoncomitant and surrounding
circumstances that must be taken into
account. There is nothing strange
about a man calling at a hotel about
dusk and asking for a glass of liquor
and thon asking to change a 95 bill,
but under certain circumstances it
might have important significance. If
the accused had a guilty knowledge of
come down that I wished to see him;
I ssid to him that if he did not look
after McNeill I would look after him.
Cross-examined by Mr. Atkinson:—
We played cards on several occasions;
I do not remember any other occasions
in particular; wo bogan to play cards
on 22nd March about 4 o'olock in the
afternoon; tho name of the game is
"stud poker;" I do not remember the
time of tbo day that I first saw Mo-
Neill; 1 nm sure I saw him at _ o'clock
p.m.; there were several others, in tho
room besides those who were engaged
playing cards; the table on which wc
wore playing stood at adistance of about
14 feet from the bar;. tho game wo
wero playing is sometimes called
"whiskey poker;" Walter Moore did
not Beem to havo nny money except
what ho received from McNeill; Mc-
Noill took tho bill from a pocket on
his right sido, inside his vest; I did
not seo whore Walter Moore got the
second bill.
The court ruled that the witness
need not answer that question;« charge
amounted to nothing, but if the priioner was convicted on any charge he
might bo oumpelled to snswer . question respecting the said oharge.
Mr. W. H. Falding, registrar of lhe
oourt deposed: Tho bills in quostion
have not been tampered with sinco I
took possession of thom, but they have
faded some since.
Mr. Moresby wss the neit witness.
He deposed: I recoived the bills from
Constable Pearoo and handed them
over to Mr. Falding.
A juror named Ining who wns not
present yesterday when the roll was
oalled was asked to account for his
absence. He explained that he had no
intention to treat the oohrt with contempt, but had simply forgotten the
date of the assises. His lordship said
as this was his first offence and probably nn unintentional one the oourt
would deal with him as lightly as possible. Mr. Irving was then dismissed
on paying the costs in the case, whioh
amounted to t6.00. ,
The court assembled at 1 o'clock.
Walter Moore, sworn, said ; Shortly
after McNeill gave me the bill he
came in and beckoned to me to go out
to the bar; I wont out; he gave me
another $5 bill; I lost the proceed, of
the first bill and a portion of the proceeds of the second bill; I had about
$9 of my own money when I began to
play; Garret Moore told me that tho
two bills I got from McNeill we-e not
good; 1 was arrested in connection
with this case; when I was changing
the second bill, Garret Mooro asked
me if the billB wero good; I laid that I
was good for the amount. ,
Cross-examined: 1 was londiug bar
about 30 minutes; McNeill asked me
if I could play poker; I said I could;
McNeill then said he would stake me;
he put hiB hand in his pocket and
brought out a roll of bills and gave me
tho ?5 bill and put the rest hack in his
pocket; Igavethebill to Garret Moore;
the two bills I received from McNeill
I changed with Garret Mooro. Garret
Moore said to me that he would give
a certain time to settle the matter; I
replied "how can it be settled;" he
said something about t)100; I cannot
swear whether he said itwould cost
8100 or thot he said ho would settle
the matter for $100.
Mr. Moresby, sworn: Ithinkitwas
about the 23rd of Maroh that I arrested the prisouer; he was shown one
note; he said he received it from,
party in Toronto.
Constablo Pesrce, sworn: J know
Garret Moore; I got one bill from him;
I gave it to Mr. Moresby; I was present at tho time McNeill was searched;
he said he got the bills from a man in
Toronto; the notea were here produced; I recognize tho notes produced
as the same taken from the prisoner.
Alexander Morrison, aworn: 1 know

tho game of cards was played; Walter
Moore passed something to Garrot
Moore and the letter said It was not

A Dlffcmat Statrment.
. In reference to the item in Thb Columbian of the 30th inst., headed "A
Bad Case," Ah Foo, whose name ap*
pears In It, supplies us with the following statement, whioh places the matter
as far as he is concerned in a much
different light:
The woman Ah Moy is not, as stated, a half breed, but is a China woman,
the wife of a Chinaman who is at preient away on a visit to China. Tho
information laid by me against her was
on account of her wrongfully keeping
certain articles and money given to
her to be given to her husband, to be
taken by him to China, and was only
withdrawn upon full restitution being
made, and riot u suggested because
the charge could not be proved. The
assault case at present pending arose,
as far as I am aware of the facts, as
follows: The complainant with another
Chinaman wu left in charge of the
fUtenaint't etore/ and npon the l*tt*r"i
off at that hour of the day."
The -Jury retired and in about two
and a half hours returned with a verdict of guilty. Tho prisoner was then
remanded for sentence and the court
adjourned until Thursday morning at
11 o'clock.
Thursday, May 3,
Tho court re-assembled at 10 o'clock.
Tho names of the petit jurors woro
called.
J. It. McNeill, charged with uttering
forged bank notes, was placed in the
dock.   He pleaded nob guilty.
Mr. McColl appeared for the prosecution and Mr. Atkinson and Mr.
Townley for the defence.
Garrot Moore sworn: I lived at
Langley before 1 came here about a
month ago; am a carpenter; I remember the day we wero playing a gamo of
cards in King & Keery's hotel; we
played along until about 2 o'clock in
the morning; McNeill was not playing
cards; lie was attending bar; Walter
asked McNeill for a 96 bill; prisoner
beckoned Walter Moore to the bar;
Moore then went to the card table and
put down the 95 bill and aiked me
to change it; he came in after a few
mpments with another 85 bill and asked to ohange it; I gave him good money
for it; I paid no particular attention
to the character of the bills at the
time; I said when I received the lirst
bill that I did not think that it was
good; he replied that he was not the
man that could not make that amount
good; I called McNeil to the card
tablo and asked him if the bills he
gave Walter Moore were good; he gave
me no satisfactory reply; I met Mo-
Neill again before going to bed; he
said that the bills wero not good; that
he got them up town and he was
afraid that he would get into trouble
about them; he said that he got the
bills from Walter Moore; I went next
morning about 6:80 and asked him to
John Uren, a photographer, on
being sworn, wai shown the bills. He
said ne believed them to have been
photographed, and he oould produce
bills very nearly like them by the process of photographing.
Simeon Huff, iworn: I have known
the prisoner for the past 13 years and
beforo he came to this province; he resided at a town named Madoc; lie kept
a hotel in Viotoria; Lwas in his omploy there.
The witnesses for the defense were
then called.
Robt. Keery sworn: lam a partner i
in the Eiokhoff houso; I remember tho
evoning of the 21st of March; asked
McNeill to attend bar for me; I -know
tho position in whioh the tablo. stood;
if McNeill waa standing closo to the
bar he oould not see Moore when sitting at the card table; Garret Moore
lived in the house about one, month;
he snid that he would attend bar for
me and play cards to rope the boys in;
told him I did not want any man to
play cards in my house for money,
Thoa. Levi, sworn, said he had
known Garret Moore about 3 years but
knew nothing of his character.
His lordship remarked that tho best
oharaoter a man can have is to havo
none at all.

known McNeill 13 years, and knew
nothing wrong of him,
A. Hill, C.E., testified he had
