NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tho late Benjamin B. Hotchkiss,
of Bridgeport, inventor of tho well
known quick-firing cannons, now
used in tho military and naval service:, of nearly all nations, acquired
an immui.se fortuno as the result of
his ingenious devices. He left an
estate valued at over twelve millions of dollars. His heirs are now
litigating about the disposal of these
millions, and the lawyers are likely
to reap a harvest.—Ex,
An exchange says: Tho king of
Siam, a young man of thirty, a
friend of the arts and sciences, has
hnd the misfortune to lose his wifo
in a tragic manner. He has sent
his brother to procure a New Testament from tho missionaries. The
king, he says, has lost faith in hia
rergion; Buddhism offers him no
consolation whatever. Now, Buddhism is the state religion of the
kingdom of Siam, and by embracing
Christianity, the king would risk
his crown and his head. But the
fnct of a heathen sovereign seeking
in the Gospel such hopes as his own
religion does not afford, is certainly
significant.
The publication of the Prince of
Wales' speeches lias revealed the
absence of humor from most of the
official utterances of the Prince.
A search for humor has, however,
disclosed some remarks at tho London Cabmen's Benevolent Association in 1879, which might be classed in that category. Tho Princo
there said : "I believe, at least it
is the popular belief, that there is
only one article a cabman never
returns, and that is an umbrella,
and I think this is, wo may consider,
quite fair, A gentleman having an
umbrella may not want a cab, but
without an umbrella he will be compelled to take n cab if the rain
comes on!"
Presidentelect Harrison is now
basking, or baking, rather, in the
"fierce light that beats upon a
throne." The most trivial detail of
his domestic life is dragged forth
nnd dished up to that insatiable
cannibal—the public. An American paper of good standing regales
its readers with the following tidbit : President-elect Harrison is
having a lively time with his grandson Benjamin, whoso mother is in
New York. The little fellow is
quiet enough during tho day, but is
certain to awaken in the small
hours of tho morning, and it is
gravely related that tlie only person
who can comfort him is Grandpa
Harrison, who is obliged to carry
the boy about in his arms and hum
a lullaby .is he walks.
The "Father of his Country,"
according to tho following, was ''bled
to death": George Washington
was of superb physieal development,
absolutely free from all tuint of
hereditary disease, a very temperate
mnn, nnd lived during most of his
life in conditions favorable to
longevity. Yet he died at the comparatively early ago of 67. When
wc rend of his biography that the
first action of each successive
medical adviser was to ask if the
patient had been bled, nnd then to
proceed to more bleeding to make
a sure thing of it, our wonder at an
early death may be moderated. On
the last day he was bled four times,
and the physician innocently says
of the last time the "blood did not
flow freely," One would suppose
not. 	
Kruegener's book camera is a
veritable detective,snys an exchange.
One might bo meekly walking along
the road, or mixing with the devout
going to or coming from church (on
a week day, of course), with this
innocent-looking, yet really formidable, apparatus in his hand or under
his arm, and no one wonld suspect
its nature, for to a casual observer
it is a book and nothing moro. Yot
does it really contain, stored awny
in its interior, uo fewer tlian two
dozen small plates, ljj inches square,
each of which can bo brought in
rotation to the focusing piano,
exposed, deposed into a separate
receptacle, nnd another plate made
to take its place, and all this by
the simple act of pulling out a small
handle, pushing it in again, and
pulling a string.
Coltharh and Brown, pluccr
mining on Snake river, near Salmon
Falls, Idaho, unearthed a complete
skeleton of a mastodon. It was
buried about 20 feet under the
ground. Tho place had at one time
evidently beon a whirlpool or eddy
of tho river. Many large bones
huvo been found there, but this last
discovery was a perfect skeleton, it
having without doubt been deposited
there while the hide was yet intact.
It was about sixteen feet long,
and it is estimated that the pile of
bones would woigh 3,000 pounds or
more. The tusks were between six
and seven feet long. The tusks and
some of the huge molars and other
bones wero preserved, but it was
impossible to Bave tho skeleton
entire, na soon nfter it was exposed
it began to crumble,—Ex.
Mr. Henry Marshall, Reeve of Dunn,
writes: "Somo timo ago I got a bottle of
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery from Mr. Harrison, and X consider it
the very best medicine extant for Dys-
pepsin," This modicino Ib making marvellous cures In Liver Complaint, Dyspepsia, etc., in purifying tho blood nnd
restoring manhood to foil vigor.

Ottawa, Feb. 14.— Sir -John Mac-
donnld ia credited with the statement
that the present session ut parliament
will witness thu most decisive act of
his lifo. This is understood to refer
to a amp d' etai destined to strangle

DEATH OF PATH Ell STACK.   *
Scranton, Pa., Feb. 14.—Tho
death is announced of Bev, M. P.
Stuck, at Luckawann hospital. He
will be remembered as the clergyman
whoso difficulties while pastor nt Wil-
liamaport, in this state, culminated in
the celebrated Stuck-O'Bara case, an
action nt law which waa well-known
ou both continents, especially in Catholic circlea of thia country, and which
was decided in favor of Bishop Ohnra,
who wn» sustained by Pope Leo XIII.
Although Father Stack made two visits to Rome iu his own behalf, he aud
afterwards became reconciled but the
latter would not reii_.__t._to tho priest
in a parish in his diocese. Tho bishop
directed two priests from the cathedral
to visit Fnther Stack daily, nnd when

TOO   MUCH MARRIED,
Cheyenne, Wyo., Feb. 14. —Gibton
A. Condie, n wealthy Mormon, leaped
from n rapidly moving train on the
Union Pacific yesterday, between
Weber and Pe'erson, Utah, aud will
likely die from Iub injuries. Condie
haa been suffering from dementia from
peculiar occurrences ol throe weeks
ago. This mnn had three wives nnd
lived happily until n dashing young
brakeman appenred on the scene and
ongnged in flirtation with Condie's
harem. The husband objected, but
was suppresud by the- .vomen. The
brakeman finally eloped with all three
wives, but abandoned two of them and
is now in Washiupuni Territory with
the youngest and prettiest. Tho other
two returned, but they were set adrift
by Condie, and Condie has seven children on hia hands, but they und his
property will be cared for by the
church.
THE SAMOAN AFFAIR,
Baltimore, Fob. 14.—Tho Sun's
Washington special saya:—,lIt now
looks probable that tho Samoan conference nt Berlin will not occur during
the present administration. Count
Arco, the German minister, called
upon Bayard yesterday nnd informed
him that hia (BaynrdV) answer to
Prince Bismnrck's proposal for a conference had been sent to Berlin by
mail. It will reach Berlin about the
20th inst. The German foreign office
will probably take aeveral days to consider Bayard's suggestions, nnd its
nnswer, if sont by ma 1, would hardly
reach this country before the beginning
of tho Harrison regime, Tho Sun's
cor respond ont htuta that tho reason
tho diplomatic corraspoh'dfthoo hns not
been conducted by v. irp is simply n
trick of Bismarck to gain timo in which
to punish the Samhaha before negotla*
tloua nt Berlin are begun. Ln well-
informed qunrters thero is a fitrong
suspicion thnt Germany has already
sent reinforcement.. 10 Samoa to seek
revenge for the killing of ollicers nnd

Baltimore, Md,4 Feb. 14.- A gang

terror in Frederick and Caroll counties. Over a dozen barns havo beon
burned, tho owners first receiving notice to lomovo the implements and

AN EFFORT FOR HARMONY.
Philadelphia, Pa., Fob. 14, -
Thero ia in session at one of the hotels
of this city a number of lenders of tho
prominent labor orgauiw.tii.mi of tho

New lioRit, Feb. 13.—Tho suit
brought against the government, before Judgo Lacombe, in the U, S.
court, by Lucke, Mover, Schefer &
Co., importers, to receive $250, excess duties, wus decided this morning
in favor of the plaintiff*. Grent interest was attached to the result of this
trial by the wool trade of the United
States, as it wns n test case. Tho
question nt issue wns whether woolens
containing a small amount of cotton
Bhould be charged ''all wool" duty,
the plaintiffs claiming they should
come under the classification of mixed
goods, that pay a duty of five cents
per square yard, while collccter Ma-
guira demanded the duty on all wool
dress goods, which is nine cents per
square yard. It is expected this decision will lead to many more suits
against tho present and past collectors
of the port of New York.
THE DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, Feb. 13.—Mr. Jainiosou
in moving his prohibition resolution
made a long speech. Ho wanted tbo
house to prohibit the snle of intoxicating liquors except for medical and
other purposes.
Mr. Ward moved in amendment
that tho following bo added to tho
motion : "When the public sentiment is ripe for tho reception and enforcement of such prohibition." Mr.
Taylor moved in amendment that tho
resolution bo adopted only after a
plebiscite hnd been taken nnd thnt the
liquor manufacturers should be compensated. Mr. Fisher supported main
motion aud the debate was udjourned.
Tho debate wns resumed this evening on Mr. Mulock's resrlution that
fertilisers bo placed on tbo freo list.
The conservatives opposed it. Two
hours of speech making followed aud
tho resolution on a division was defeated on a party vote by 30 majority. The houso adjourned at 10:40
p.m.
Iu tho house to-day Mr. Mam asked
whether it is the intention of the government to appoint county court
judges in British Columbia at an early
date. The minister of justice replied
und said that the government will nsk
parliament to sanction tho appointment
of throe judges.
Colonel Donison moved for tho appointment of a select committee to
enquire into the desirability of the
government acquiring all the electric
telegraph Hues in Canada. Hu spoke
at length pointing out tho advantages
to be derived from the syatem he proposed. Tho American telegraph
monopolists took an unfair udvantnge
in distributing certain despatches in
Canada, especially in mutters affecting
or dealing with the Dominion.
Sir Hector Langevin threw cold
water on the scheme. He thought
that the time for taking auch a step
had not arrived, and pointed out the
enormous expenditure of the undertaking.
Colonel Denison, who is a supporter
of tho government, withdrew his
motion amid shouts of "Discipline,
Discipline," from tho opposition
benches.

Thursday Evening, Feb. 14. 1888.
For the last two or three  months
the Tacoma Ledger   has   been   engaged in ti vigorous crusade   against
the vicious and disreputable elements
of  tbe   "city   of destiny" as  represented by low   groggories,   gambling dives, dancing bouses, jkc, ia,
and a corrupt chief and polico force
that countenances all the  abominations aforesaid.    Against "Gambler
Morgan," an influential dive-keeper,
and the   incarnation   und   embodiment, as well as the   champion,   of
all that is vilest in cities, and against
Ohief of Polico Thompson,   for   notoriously abetting vice   and crime,
have the attacks of tbe Ledger been
principally directed.    Our Tacoma
cotemporary lias taken tho   ground
that the material interests of a city
are  injuriously  affected   by a bad
moral condition, which does not require  much  argument  to sustain.
Tho better classes—those   who  aro
most desirable us citizens from every
point of view—naturally cannot   be
expected to select a placo to locate
permanently  and   bring  up their
families where vice nud its correlative, crime, are rampant.    Besides,
leaving out of account the growth of
population altogether, a city is just
so much weaker nnd poorer by   the
number of non-productive, vice and
crime breeding propagandas that it
harbors.    The Ledger, of course, has
had tbe " moral" support of  Taco*
ma's  best  citizens in its righteous
crusade.   It  has   also,    nuturully,
brought upon itself threats and damage from the class against which its
attacks were directed, a notable instance of retaliation   beiug   an   incendiary attempt, a fow weeks since,
to destroy the Ledger office,   which
happily   failed,   however, by being
discovered before serious damage had
resulted.   The Ledger succeeded in
having "Morgan's" license revoked,
but it will have tbe work to do   all
over again, ns tho wide-awake  and
and patriotic (1) city council of  Tacoma   have  just   granted n saloon
license for the same premises to oue
H. H. CHne, ostensibly the   successor, but, really, the tool, of Morgan,
und this in the face   of   a   remonstrance from 2,000 of Tncoma's  best
citizens, although ninety-one   business men were found to petition for
the grunting of the license.    For the
present, then, it would appear   that
the Ledger has suffered defeat in its
laudable effon to purge the Augean
stables of the "city of destiny," but
those endeavors will not have   been
thrown away altogether, and in the
civic  and   departmental   elections,
which come off in May next,   some
fruit will likely appear.   Vice does
not flaunt itself in this city so openly nor to the extent, as described by
tho Ledger, that it does in Tacoma;
but those who have listened  to, or
have read the published reports of,
Bev. Mr. White's recent sermons on
tbe   moral   condition of our city—
and the facts therein set forth cannot Vie disputed—will admit that, in
tbe   material   interests  of the city
alone, reform   is   urgently   needed.
Our city council will have tho   support ot the boat   sentiment   of   tbe
eitf in inaugurating such reforms,
There would appear to be no end
to the different stories and   theories
advanced to account for the sad and
tragic   de-ith   of   Rudolph,   crown
prince of Austria, on the   30th   of
January last.    The   following   personal particular? about the   hapless
Hapsborg, given by a writer in tbe
London Times will prove interesting:
Prince Rudolph was a familiar figure
in London, and plans for along visit
to England next May were made by
him when the Prince of Wales was
in Austria.    The friendship between
Albert Edward and   Rudolph   was
one   of  tho   elosest existing among
European prince:..    It originally had
a basis iu common dislike for young
William   of   Germany.   Thoso two
young heirs of Hnpsburg und   Ho-
benzollern won- as boys very fond of
oach other, being nearly of tbe samo
age and-purposely thrown   together
by their parents.    William us a lad
of fourteen spent nearly  thu   whole
summer of 1873 at Vienna  at  the
time of tho  exhibition  there,  and
played about with Rudolph like  a
brother.   It is related that there is
now a retired English police  dignitary in London who waa a sergeant
*   of the English section of  tho polico
of Vienna thon, und he tells a story
of arresting and culling  both  boys
for falling on a flower  bed   in   tho
exhibition garden, and being overwhelmed with horror when he learn
ed who they wore.   It was only in
recent years that  the  two young
men fell out, and, whatever was the
oause of their quarrel, it was so profoundly  bitter  that  it  had been
counted upon as a possible factor in
the European situation in the future
Rudolph until recently was regarded
Ma prinoe of exceeding promise.
Ho wai a great linguist, an excellent
musician, and wrote easily and well.
Ho affeoted tho society of  authors,
artists and statesmen and  married
one  of  the  prettiest and sweetest
princesses fn Europe.    Vienna was
•particularly  enthusiastic  over iho
yonng couple, and throughout the
empire Rudolph shared to the full
tho great affection his father is held
in.   But soon tbcro came a change.
He quarrelled with his wife and the
public took her side.   The tone   of
bis associations visibly   sank,  and
painful   stories   of   his habits and
doings began to be   circulated.    At
tho same time his health declined.
As a boy he promised to be strong,
but  when   seen by the Times' correspondent in Berlin last March he
bad a pale, sallow,   shrunken   face,
shrouded in black side-whiskers and
moustache,   and   was  prematurely
bald, and there wero suggestions of
bnd health both in   bis   expression
and carriage.    It was said thon that
epilepsy,   which   is   the hereditary
curso of tho   Hnpsburgs,   specially
nfHicted him, so that he had   to   bo
constantly watched as a precaution
against fits.   The question   of  succession will create tbe  deepest   interest   throughout   Europe.       His
only child is u delicate little daughter, in her sixth year, and would in
tho natural order of things be passed
over by the Salic law in favor of the
emperor's   brother,   Karl   Ludwig,
who is a man of 56 nnd  has  threo
sons   between   20 and 2G.    But in
view of Rudolph's poor health   this
question bad been discussed   somewhat of lato, and there is a  notion
thnt   some  such provision may be
made in favor of Rudolph's daughter, us the famous Pragmatic sanction of 1740 by which tbe Emperor
Karl secured tbe succession for   bis
daughter, Marie Theresa. The Archduke Kuri Ludwig is not a   notable
or popular man and   his   marriage
with tbe daughter of   Bomba   produced sons who aro even   less  admirable,   mentally     and    morally.
Hence some such plan to keep   the
dynasty in the line of the little girl
and carefully select the right  kind
of a husband for her may bo resorted
to.    The deceased Prince   Rudolph
was more noted for his scientific and
literary attainments than   for   nny
role in the political life of tlie   empire.    He ranked high as an   ornithologist, and for several yenrs   has
supervised tho publication of nn important work, descriptive of all tbe
birds and insects to be found in  the
Austria-Hungarian empire.    In 1880
Prince Rudolph mado a journey   to
Egypt, and went up tho Nile as far
as the second cataract.    During this
trip he killed with his own rifle  75
gazelles, 700 brace of   desert  partridges, and 4 2 hyenas,   He used to
get a dead donkey and place   it   in
the desert.   Prince Rudolph would
wait all night near the dead donkey,
rifle in hand.   Just beforo daybreak
a dozen hyenas would collect  about
tho carcass.    Tbe prince would then
let drive at them with his magazine
rifle,   nnd   kill   nearly all of them.
When   in   Egypt   Prince Rudolph
used to go out on tbo Lybian desert
ou a dromedary, accompanied by two
or three intimate friends.     He was
a great athlete, and could outrun the
most wiry Bedouin.    Ono day  he
went up the big Pyramid in Egypt,
and   reached the top in seven minutes.     The   Times'   correspondent
onco accompanied Prince   Rudolph
in a shooting excursion in  Eaysum.
The prince walked with his gun on
his shoulder for seven hours in a hot,
blazing sun without   stopping onco
for a rest.   While waiting for lunch
in   a  kiosque,   the property of his
highness  AH   Pasha  Oheerif, the
prince    remarked:    "Nothing    I
should   like   better  than  to be a
Bedouin chief and live in this glorious
climate and shoot all dny long," AU
Pasha Oheerif snid, "Certainly   you
would  have  no political cares and
anxieties."   "Ob," exclaimed Prince
Rudolph, "I bate politics, especially
court politics, and intrigues I abhor.
I don't liko European princes   as n
rule.   I like these Bedouins, though,
very much."   Then, after a   pause,.
Prince Rudolph added:   "After all,
things look now ns if thoro would be
no more princes in Europe.   Beforo
nnother   half   century   elapses  we
shnll all hnvo to get out of the way
to   make   room   for presidents and
deputies.    I am not sorry either.    I
shall be n literary man and a naturalist; and go shooting every day   of
my life."   It will bo seen that there
were many amiable and   promising
points about the unfortunate prince,
his known antipathy to both young
William of Germany and Bismarck,
as   well,   being rather in his favor
than  otherwise,   and   it seems tco
bad, for Austria, at any rate,    thnt
he should have met so untimely and
ignoininuous a fate.

JOE AND  CAPTAIN JIM.
.
There's More Than One Way of
Oolleotlnff a Bill.
"I hnvo collected bills in many ways and
in many plnccs; I hnve begged for pay-
in(.ni, bribed for payment, stormed for pay-
in; ■'.■■•; I hnvo wheedled, implored, flatterod
and -..biiied; I havo waked the heavens
above, tho earth beneath and the waters
under tho earth, but I never collected a
claim ns Joo Smith once dld-IUd Z don't
believo I'd over caro to." -
So said a Georgia merchant as he
stretched himself put in a big easy chair In
n Broadway hotel, filled as to body by the
comfort of an excellent dinner, and as to
mind hy the consciousness of a good day's
work woll dono. His trip to New York for
goode promised woll, his stay in the oity;
wii a nearly ended and ho had one or two
encouraging letters from the South. Naturally ho wns cheerful, and just as natural-
_ ly his talk drifted back to old days, when he
wus a dcnl younger than ho Ib now, and
when things In Georgia were vory different
Irom what thoy nro now. |
"Joo came to ub from Connecticut five
yours before the war broke out," said the
old gentleman, getting afresh light for his
cigar nud n fresh grip ou his story at the
snme time. "Wo wero ex-Nutherns ourselves, nnd wo -wero glad to got him. He
was u big, sinowy fellow, not pretty, by any
menus, but about as tough physically as any f
thing ever turned out by a diet of plo and a
landscape of rocks. Ho wasn't a boy even
in thoso days; ho must have been well on
toward thirty, and his lace wus so seamed
thut ho looked older. Ho looked strong,
und if a stranger ever doubted his
powers Joo's voico settled it. It was
one of those big, deep voices that
mndo you think of a bass drum
und cu.cuU.te that tho owner must be a
mighty hefty chap. Woll, we Uked Joe,
but it was very hard to get work to suit
him. Ho could sell goods sometimes, but
ho wns upt to frighten tho women with
thut voico of his. Then, too, ho was too
quiet to get iiloiif*. with some of tho young
bloods nmong our customers, who always
liked to talk cock-lights or shooting or
horses when they came iu to buy a bill of
goods. Joo wus willing to pleaso'om, but
ho couldn't. Ho'd roll out something in
th;; thunder voico of hi&, but what he said
never seemed appropriate. Thou wo sent
hilt! Nortii on a trip, but even thoro he
didn'tnhinonsa buyer. So finallyweput
hiin on making- collections iu tho hopo that
bo would prove a good hand at that, but
while he was a worker through and through
ho never got tho knack of wheedling people
out of their dollars.
"It was about,a year boforo tho war
when Joo camo ih from one of his cqllect-
ing trips about as empty handed as usual.
Whilo it was, of courso, a good whilo before tho beginning of tho hostilities, wo had
found thnt among some of our customers
thero wus growing up a feeling against
us, not so much becauso wo wero creditors
us because'wo wero known to be from tho
North. We woro, of course, getting n little
anxious over tho look of tilings, nud a few |
days boforo had got a piece of news which
increased our forebodings. It was that a
certain Captain Jim, who owed us a considerable amount, was preaching among
his neighbors tho doctrine thnt there wan
no need of settling up tho accounts we held
und thnt ho didn't mean to do so.
Now, as ho wns tho cock of tho walk in
his district, a big, burly follow, with lots of
assurance, aud had tho reputation of a
fighting man, his stand did us a great deal
of harm. Many of his frionda owed ui
money, and they delayed settling up, preferring to seo how we would deal with Captain Jim. Just how wo wero going to handle
him wns tho question wo woro discussing
the day Joo camo in. Wo had written the
Captaiu, and that morning had received an
answer from him that if wo wanted the
money 'we'd havo to send somebody to take,
it out of his hide.'
"' Well,' said Joe, coolly enough,' I guess
I'd better call on the Captain.'
" Now, as ho had nevor icon the Captain,
and didn't rculize what a tough customer he
was, wo tried to persuade Joo not to go.
But go ho would, for he seemed to feel that
lie ought to prove his usefulness in some
wny. Ho equipped himself with the biggest knife ho could find, a brace of huge
boi-so pistols, a long doublo-barrelcd gun
ami nn axe. I noticed that in choosing his
tools ull ho appeared to caro for was size.
Neither of tho pistols wero loaded, and I
doubt if ho knew how to charge the gun.
Long boforo starting he took care to lend
by ono ot tbo Captain's neighbors who
chuiicud to como to town news that ho was
going to go up to the Crook whero the Captain lived, and that nbont Friday morning
Uiui'c'd bo nbout the prettiest fight Georgia
had ovor seen If tho Captain wasn't ready
to settle. Tho Crook was a good two days'
ride distant and I couldn't understand why
Joo should take sueh precious caro to let his
enemy know ho was coming.
"'Well,'Joo explained,'look hore. If he
hears I'm coming he'll nover wait for me.
He's too fond of light for that He'll simply start out to meet me and I'll get him
off Ids own ground, where I'd havo no
(..inure, in the world. Ho will havo just
about timo to got to tho tavern at tho
Forks Thursday night and I guess we'll
kinder compose our littlo difficulty there
whero he won't have so mack show to use
his guns.'
"It happened that I had business not far
from tho Forks on Thursday, and, by hard
ridi.)g, managed to reach the tavern lato
that uight. The people about the houso
woro full of excitement, and 1 soon learned
that Joe nnd Uio Captain wero both on tho
ground. Thoy had ridden up from opposite directions about tho samo time nn
hour enrlior, and thoir armamonts, for tho
Captain's equipment duplicated-Joo's, burring tlio axe, had created a sunsntion.
Every hotly know tho Captnin, of courso,
but it no happened thnt nobody had ever
seou Jon boforo. Neither, man would talk
Of his errand, and ul) the loungers could
agree .tipitn was that there wero two
mighty bud-men in tho house and that tbo
next dny wns likely to seo somo fun somc-
whoi'ii ihcrcab'-ut. Looking into tho main
room of tho-inn I saw tho ehampioiiB, each
sluing nonr n glaBS nud surrounded by his
weapons. Hut it wus dear in nn instant
that It their relations wore formal thoy
wero not unfriendly-, und that tho Captain
hnd not discovered Joo's Idontity, In fuel,
wc nftoi-wnrdft lenrnod, he took the collector fur iiBherifCof ono of tho lower
counti.* i who hud a moro thnn local reputation, gained in a desperate. buttle with u
defip.T-!'... With nxon ns weapons. I took
cave not to show myself until the mon
wont to bed, nnd thon imagine my
surpriso when I learned that,.tho li_n.ll.i-d
had assigned them, not ohly.to th -v ,mo
room, but lo tho sumo couch. L.r,...y
I was given a sharo in tho room next theirs;
my companion waB sleepy, nnd there woro
cracks in tha partition, so that 1 had nn difficulty in finding out what was going on next
door. The moonlight streamed in, showing
both men iu bed. By the head of each wai
a stuck of deadly weapons, but tho roommates wero ovldontly getting acquainted
amicably enough. Tho Captain wns telling
Bomo story illustrative of his prowesa with
abowic. Then Joo took his turn, and re*
latcd tlio gory details of a littlo affray of
honor Bottled with axes and a funeral.
" ' I allfers prefers ujtee, sir/ ■ I heard Joe
•say. 'Thoy mSver missel. Mow, you can lilt
a mail withakiiifo and a button "may turn
the point, but nxes, sir, did you over hoar of
a button turning an axe, sir!'
"But tho Cuptoin was ready with an incident in which tho knifo figured most prominently, nnd then branched off into untie-
count of ii purnoy of his into Louisiana,
wlreh .ind l.ccn attended with considerable
mlscclluncous slaughter. Joo countered
with a t.ilc of nn enjoyable visit ho hnd lud
to California, whero ho had In ono day shot
a gambler, gouged tho eyea out of ft minor
und bn ken the neck of a tenderfoot with n
blow. Of courso tho Captain responded in
kind, but ho wus perceptibly weakening,
and tlie difficulty ho described had 1* d to
but two homicides. Joo was beginning another novelette which promised well," .vhoti
ho interrupted himself by suddenly rising
up iu bed, pulling his trousers frum
a chair, and fumbling fn ono of tlio pockuts.
Then ho began to bewail bis luck. It wus
bis invariable custom, ho explained, tu dig
out Iho bullets from the bodies of such victims us ho shot nnd koep them iu n cortuin
pocket. This should now contain eight, hut
as lie could find only seven one had evidently been lost. However, he was somewhat
comforted by tho rcmembranco that the
morrow promised to replace his treasure,
ns lie had promised somo •morciTutilo
friend!) of his to either collect a littl.-. dubt
or mnko their claim ono against nn astute.
"'Whati' gasped tho .Captain, 'iiint you
Sheriff-!'
" 'No, sir,' quoth Joe, 'I'm going to call on
a party, sir, they call Captain Jim. They
aay bo loves Bport, sir, and if you'll come
with mo you'll seo lomo fun. By the wny,
If you know this'ere Captain, just tell me
what kind of a lookin' chap he is, will you .'
"I did not hear the reply, for just then tho
landlord rushed in to toll mo that my horse
bad hurt himself in the barn and was iu a bad
way. Half an hour passed beforo I returned,
and thon all waa quiet in tho next room,
whilo both its occupants wero apparently
sleeping. I awoke tho next morning to find
Joo by my bedside, with tho broadest of
smiles on his face.
" 'But tho Captain.' I asked.
"'Oh, he's all right. He slipped out of
bod about four o'clock this morning, woke
tho landlord to tell him that he hnd business
in the next county, and then departed, after
leaving this envelope for me.'
"Joe handed mo tho envelope. It contained
money enough to meet our claim in full.
"Tho next timo I saw tho Captain no
called at our store. Joe was then ia South
Carolina, we told him as he bought a bid of
goods.
"'But he's coming back!' the visitor
asked, in n thoughtful way.
" 'Oh, yes, he'll be here next month.'
" 4I may as well pay cash,' tho Captain remarked, and as ho did so ho drew mo aside
uud whispered in my ear: 'There's ono
thing beon bothering my memory lately,
Was it six or soven men ho killed In California.'"-N.Y. Times.
OAN WOMEN  THINK?
Ono ofTli<mi Argues out...* Nogntlvo Sido
of tho Question.
Tlio most striking pnpor in u recent issue
oftho Vntvemd Review la entitled, "Onn
Certain Deficiency in Women," and written
by Mias Fletcher, tho author of "Ki-.i.n. t,'
"Vcatign," undone or two other don-_.hlf.il
stories, who vails her idontity under the nom
do plume of George Fleming. Tho problem
proposed in this paper is " Hnve women a
capacity for serious thinking."—a question
of which tho writer plainly cspousea tho
ncgutivo side. And tho one great reason
for tholr fnilui-o, sho alleges, is oue so full
of force, of unerring insight aud of actual
truth that It is impossible to deny it—tin.
reason that women are practically never
alone. " In tho present writer's oyes," she
says, "that disability consists almost entirely In tho feminine incapacity or radical disinclination (the'word matters littlo) for serious concoutrutcd and continued thought.
Aud thi.*- aguin derives in a groat mensuru
from tlio crowded lifo, tho gregarious habits, tho shcep-llko falling and halting of
educated women. Whether it Is imposed
on thom or neeopted by them, tho result, so
fnr ns art ami morals are concerned, remains tho same." Thero is a depth of significance in this. To a woman in what in
conventionally known as good society tho
lovo of solitude is utterly unknown. Sho is
chaperoned und escorted und companioned
till she tins hot only no clear idea of -.clown idoutity, but no very clear identity of
which to havo an ideo. To achieve this result is, under circumstances that vory fro.
quontly occur, n tax that becomes a serious
burden materially as woll as a constant clog
mentally. A man may betake himself to
any place or rosort ho pleases, bo*a spectator of its life, and yot retains, if he likes, tho
personal solitude of tho primmval wilder-
noss; but if a woman would go to tlio
mountains, to the sea, to tho oity—anywhere
sho will—sho must havo at least a woman
companion with her In the guise of a clinper-
ono, friend or maid.
Ottierwiso sho will require at best a
reputation for eccentricity, and, at worst,
something evon lots desirable. Aud liniB
sho never tastes the sweets of solitude.
Bho novor knows tho lilence other inspirations. "There is scarcely ono man In a
thousand," says Miss Fletcher, "who, at
some timo in his life, hat not felt and in.
dulgod tho Impulse to step out from tho
rank and file of his familiars and his con.
temporaries, and envisage his own uuturo
stripped of its forms nnd surroundings; not
a man worthy of tho name but bas searched
for and found himself, has hewn out ids
conviction and wrestled, like Jacob,
through tho long nights of hit youth, with
tho stern-browed angel of somo revelation. And all thin implies voluntary solitude*, it implies on impassioned interest in
tho Impersonal and continuous habit of the
mind. Aud aro such things, thon, finally
denied to tho largest half of our adult
population?" At society goos, thoy are;
and it la hnrdly an oxtravaganco to soy that
this denial of individual freedom is tho
most luimical intluouco to womon'i intellectual achievements. To a woman living
without members of ber own family this
unwritten law becomes a severe financial
tax. In at least half the affairs of her ine
sho must duplicate hor expenses. When*
over sho takes her walks abroad, so to
speak, she must Invito a lady companion,
nud, us her companion it hor guest, ahe
must bo entertained, both In the sordid
matter of bills paid, but in what is often
moro—in giving her timo and enorgy to her
guest. Thus sho is severely handicapped
for intellectual work. She Is cabined,
cribbed, confined. She can command no
conditions for aorious thought. And,
"without serious thought behind it-a
scriouB habit of thought"—at George
Fleming well nays, "talent of which tho
.world Is full loworB to tho morost monkey
triokof tho imagination; a tiling pli.i'.U- i'j
fashion, at. onoe reigning over uud do-
pendent upon the idlest whima of tbe
day." '

The H..rlli Arm Bond.
Tho want of n wagon road between
New Westniiuster und tho Nortii Arm
hns been keenly feltby tho farmers sinco
the regular steam service was suspended. North Arm farmers having
business in Westminster nnd only residing six miles distant, in u straight
lino, are Forced to drive a distance of
twenty miles in order to roaoh tho
city, Westminster cannot expect
much trade from tho North Arm farmers while it is necessary to take this
roundabout route. Tho establishment
of a daily steamboat service will do
much io bring tlie farmers back to
Westminstor, but tho road, if anything, is lhe most important of iho
two, ii3 it places no tax on the fanners.
The government will make many
friends on the North Arm if the road
is built.
St. Valentine's hay.
Weare glad to know that tho grand
old custom of sending loving tokens to
friends on St. Valentines Day is not
dying out. It is ono of those fond
pustoms which has been handed down
for generations, and ono which even
the rude mop of modern civilization
has uot beenablo to obliterate. We
have baen favored to-day — greatly
favored—and our composition is filled
with gratitude. Tho token sent us is
modest und unpretensive, not ono of
those costly affair.* scribbled over with
fulsome praiso nnd flattery, and which
brings vividly to ones mind tho many
perfections wo aro known to poscss.
On the contrary our valentine modestly
epiuts us in tlio role of the lato and
ighly respected George Washington,
of Virginia, U. S., with a little
hatchet in our hand, and u sinilo seraphic on our face which would inspire
confidence in the heart of a bankrupt
real estate dealer. Tho tout ensemble
of the chromo is rather flattering,
aud not undeserved, but our
beauty is Bomewhat marred by the
size of our feet, which wo must
confess have been over drawn—but we
overlook this defect in chanty to the
artist. The accompanying lines are
short, but to the point, and tlio sentiments contained therein are more nnd
better than we expected. Send along

verso: "Whether any do enquire of
Titus, hu is my partner and follow-
helper concerning you ; or our brethren be enquired of, they nro the thoa-
seiigera of the ohuroh and the glory of

and his obligations and motives. Those
being satisfactorily answered, Rev,
Mr. McRao pronounced as follows ■
"In the name of Christ and by the authority of tho Presbytery 1 induct you

The following account of a fatal
drowning accident on tho Skeena has
been received from Kev. CJ. l'\ Hopkins, Methodist missionary at Port
Essingtou : Au accident occurred ou
tho Skeena rivor, botween Aberdocn
and Port Essiugtou sometime during
the night of Doc. 19th, 1888, by which
Wm. Faulkner, who was employed by
tho British American Packing Company, and nn Indian named Henry
Muitlaud, lost thoir lives. They went
over on the Cariboo Fly from Port
Essinglon to Aberdeen to borrow a
Columbia river fish boat to take aome
pnekages from tho British American
Packing Company to Fort Simpson.
They left after dark the samo evening,
with little or no wind, but never nr-
rived ut thoir destination. The boat
was seen bottom up thu next evening,
but darkness closed down boforo it
could bo found again to tow it to shore.
Nothing has been found except part of
tho floor, an oar and a box of apples
which belonged to tlio Indians. The
cold water will likely prevent Iho
bodies from rising at present. The
general supposition is lhat thoy wero
rowing, but had both sails set and
made fast, nnd thut a gust of wind
came down the Uxstoll inlet and overturned the boat before tho sail., cnuld
bo loosed. Mr. Faulkner loaves relatives somewhere iu Nova Scotia, but
just where no one acinus to know. He
was a young man about 30 years
old.— Colonist.
Annexation Meeting.
A public meeting was held last evening at Sapperton to consider tho advisability of annexing that suburb to
tho corporation of the cily of New
Westminster. Tho city was represented by acting Mayor Curtis, and Aid.
Ewon, Jaques. Reid and Cunningham.
On motion J. B. Kennedy took the
chair and Mr, Polly acted as secretary. After a spirited discussion
which lasted about two hours, in which
the acting mayor, the aldermen,
Messrs. DeBeck, Laidlaw, McBride
and several others took part, the following resolution   waa  introduced.—
Moved by II. L. DeBeck, seconded by
Jas. A. Laidlaw, That wc, thu property-
owners of Suppoi ton. agree to betaken
into the city limits of IS. W. provided the
Southern Railway workshops are built
at Sapperton, or in the event of tbo said
workshops not being built at Sapperton,
that wc be exempt from taxation for nil
existing debts of tho city, nnd that a
clause be added to thu city charter to
that effect, otherwise we protest against
Sapperton being taken in as part of tlie
said city of New Westminster.
The following amendment to the
foregoing resolution was then moved
by Mr, A. li. McBride and seconded
by Mr. McKenzie:
Thntwotlieunder-ignedresidentsand
property owners of Sapperton hereby
expresB our desire to bo taken into or

After some discussion the amendment was put to the meeting und lost.

Tlio broad charge made by eastern
newspapers of the indifference of British Columbia in malting known to tho
outside world the incomparable climate
which it ia our good fortune to eujoy,
is not too strongly put, and applies
with greater forco tu us ns citizens, if
we desire tho outside world to know,
not only of our climate, but of the
other varied advantages in and around
our city as a place for settlement as
well ns profitable investment. Now,
to the eastern provinces nnd the European states, the special efforts in advertising seem to havo an amount nf tur-
gidity in them, and to overcomo this
feeling thorn U a very simple means in
tho hands of every aubscriber to Tin-:

round, you address your copy (when
read) to sonic friend or aquaintanco or
business house in the eastern provinces,

tho continual stream uf published facts
going out will do manifestly moro to

The statement made in the local

bo rife as to who will bo the lucky
cipients of thrsc honorable positions at

selected for their hterling worth or
their abilities 113 jurists, but rather
does the opportunity afford thu lender
of the party in power a chance to
shelve some of the "worn out" followers who have served his purpose nnd
for whom ho has no further use and
who must give place to men of moro
influcmeo and whose gerrymandering
will be new. Instances aro fow where
other than this oourae is followed, and
as the precedent is established in the
higher appointments, coming more
directly under the crown, of objecting
to persons who for various reasons are
thought unfit to (111 thom, so wo mny
not bo surprised that in the advancement of popular s-in imcut in this age
there should bu a desire amongst
our people to have something to say in
the appointmenti. to thu judicial bench.
Who will bo appointed it is impossible
to conjecture, but it is to be hoped thnt
those who' have shown antagonism to
certain sections of the law they would

Henry Clement, Almonte, writes: "For
a long time I was troubled with chronic
rheumatism, nt times wholly disabled;

until a gentlemen who waa cured of rheumatism liy Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil,
told me about it. I began using it both
internally and externally, and before
two bottles wero used I waa radically
cured, We find it n household medicine, and for croup, burns, outs and
