SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
A curious feature of tho artificial
teeth industry is the variety of colors
required for different countries.
Canada, for instance, demands teeth
for snowy whiteness, South America
those of a yellow color, and China
only black teeth.
In lute French experiments, a
pressure of several hundred tons to
the square inch reduced discs of
cork to one-fifth of their original
thickness, but the original bulk was
regained in ten minutes after the
removal of the pressure.
A race between bees and pigeons
lately took place inWestphalia. The
bees were marked by rolling in flour,
and the first reached home over the
distance 3 J miles 25 seconds before
the first pigeon, three other bees
arriving before the  second  pigeon.
A very singular new species of
marsupial mammal from ; New
Guinea has beon described by Milne-
Edwards under the name of
Daclylopsila palpalor. It is remarkable for the enormous length
of the fourth linger—more than an
inch longer than the two adjoining
digits.
Prof. Mosso, of Turin, finds that
tho blood of eels is poisonous when
injected into the veins of dogs and
other animals, and that an eel weigh-
ins; five pounds contains poison
enough to kill ten men. The blood
of the eel is inert, howover, when
taken into the stomach, and the
and the poisonous properties are
destroyed by heat.
Frozen Milk.—The Agricultural
Society of France has been shown
by lit. Guerin that fresh milk may
be easily transported to the most
distant places in a frozen state, the
freshness being retained for an
indefinite period. When thawed,
though days and weeks after
freezing, the milk is said to equal
new for cooking, yield of cream, production of butter and cheese, and in
all other respects.
An Undesirable Phoduot. —
Color-blindness seems to be developed by civilization. In examinations of 156,733 civilized
people Dr, B. J. Jeffries has found
4.27 per oent color blind. Of 4H
members of certain tribes of Algiers
examined by Dr. "Favre, only 2.6
percent were color-blind; of 161
young Indians examined by Dr.
Fox, only 1.81 per cent; and of '18
Indian pupils at a Kansas school,
only.9 per cent The use of tobacco
is suggested as a possible cause.
A Simple Motor. — A new
method of utilizing the power of
running streams has been devised
by M. Tayn, a Russian engineer,
His apparatus consists of an endless
cable carrying a series of canvas
cones which open and shut like an
umbrella. The cable passes over a
double drum on board a pontoon,
and at the other end over a pulley
suspended from a buoy. On the
lower part of tho rope the cones are
opened and forced forward by the
current of water, thus setting. in
motion a shaft or drum.
Ceylon's Hope.—This microscopic fungus which has preyed on the
leaves of the coffee-plant sinco 1869
has well-nigh ruined Oeylon, diminishing its exports of coll'eo nine-
tenths, Other products have been
tried as substitutes for the former
great crop, cinchona having been
produced to such an extent that the
market has been glutted and the
industry rendered unprofitable. In
the last dozen years tea has been
cultivated, and is now exported to
the value of $3,000,000 yearly,
promising to take the place of coffee,
and restore prosperity to the island.
World Buildino.—Laplace supposed that the solar system originally consisted of a mass of gas in
rotation, the cooling of this mass
causing it to contract and rotate
more rapidly until it became so flattened that a number of rings wero
successively torn off, which subsequently coalesced into planets, the
central portion forming the sun.
Tho correctness of this view seems
to be proven by a recent photograph
of a nebula in Andromeda. In this
nebula the shaping of a new world-
system from gas appears actually in
progress, the photograph showing
the central condensation, and the
successive rings and planetary
nebulae already formed. Researches
of Lockyer and other considerations,
however, now render it almost certain that the immediately antecedent condition of our sun and planets
was not a gas, but that they consisted of a swarm of loose stones or
meteorites. Considering this apparent contradiction between Laplace's hypothesis and the later
meteoric theory, Prof. G. H. Darwin
concludes that a celestial nebula
may be given a gaseous character
by the collisions of the stones, and
that we are justified in believing in
the substantial truths of the nebular
hypothesis while still holding that
stellar nebulae consist of swarms of
loose stones in frequent collision
with one another.
The Ozar of Russia has devoted a
million roubles, and an estate worth
$300,000 roubles a year to the
foundation and maintenance of a

Durfee and Prooassett Mills report a
larger number of looms running this
morning.than any previous-time since
lhe strike begun. At other mills the
situation remains unchanged. To-day's
mass meeting of the strikers showed
no change, as to attendance and sentiment. To Secretary Connolly's question "Shall we continue to fight on the
plan proposed by the executive committee," tho strikers responded with
shouts of "Yes" Connolly said tlmt
the strikers had the support Df all cotton operatives in the country and were
beginning to receive encouragement
aud assistance; be desired to impress
upon his hearers the necessity of standing firmer than ever, on Monday morning next as the manufacturers expect
to see a break in the ranks. Then
other speakers gave encouraging re*
ports of the results of the first day's
work of collectors. Another meeting
will be held Monday.
TO BE OPENED UF FOR SETTLEMENT.
Washingotn, March 22.—it is understood the question of issuing a proclamation opening to settlement the

MR  JUSTICE MATHEWS   BEAD.
Washington, March 22.—The supreme court met us usual at noon. As
soon as the court was opened, the
chief justice said; "The court hoe received tho melancholy intelligence of
the death of its beloved member,
Justice Matthews, in this city, at 10
o'clock this morning, no business will
therefore bo transacted and the court
will adjourn until Monday noxt at
12 o'clock," The justices afterwards-
met in the consultation room to perfect
arrangements for attendim. the funeral. Tho senato met in regular uo*aiou
and the chaplain in his opening prayer
made feeling reference to the death of
Justice Matthews. The vice-president
laid before the senato a note, from
Chief Justice Fuller, announcing the
death of Matthews, Baying that the
funeral would probably occur on Monday. The senate then adjourned oat
of respect to the dead justice.

DOMINION PARLIAMENT,
Ottawa, March 22.—Two hours
were spent in lively talk to-day in the
railway committee. Before the Oanadian Pacifio Railway bill was token
up olauae by clause everybody thought
there would be a row, and as a result
thi room was packed.   The bill with
amendments was reported. President
Van Homo was on hand early. The
bill as modified, contains a clause for
the appropriation for $330,000 to
build seventeen miles of road in
British Columbia to the international
boundary. The clause in the original
bill, provided for bonding the short
lino to the extent of $3,000 per mile
was dropped. Big opposition came
from the lower provinco members, who
took advantage of the opportunity to
urge the incorporation in the act of a
clauso providing for tho completion of
the 17 mile link still wanting to complete connection there.
Hon, G, A. Kirkpatriok explained
the object of the bill, which consolidates the entire debenture stook, includes all branch lines and allows an
issue of increased stock at the rate of
82,500 per mile to the extent of $12,-
600,000, the rate of interest being four
per cent, aB at present. The proposed
changes, though authorized by parli-
ment, cannot become law until the
consent of two-thirds of the shareholders is obtained. Upon Mr Foster's
suggestion the lands given to the company by the Dominion government are
omitti-tl by the -noufitioQ upon whioh
the loan can be affected.
The proceedings in the house to-day
Sroved very tame. On motion of Sir
ohn Macdonald, Sir Hector Langevin,
Hon. Peter Mitchell, Mr. John Charlton, Hon. G. E. FoBter and Mr.
White (Renfrew), were appointed a
committeo to confer with the Senate
committee appointed to enquire into
tho expenditure of the country in respect of legislation and the practicability of reducing it.
The bills relating to the exchequer
court and the supreme and exchequer
courts act were passed.
The militia estimates were then
taken, up. Sir Adolphc Caron announced that the government would
gradually improve the armaments of
the Pacific and Atlantic coasts by annual purchases of rifled ordnance.
It was arranged that the house
would not meet until Tuesday.

We venture the assumption that in all

ANOTHER GRAT  VICTORY.
London, March 23.—An election
was held yesterday in Gorton division *
of Lancashire to fill the seat in the
house of commons made vacant by
Mr. Peacock, a liberal member. The
liberals were sure of carrying the election, having had a majority of 457 in
'86, and of 1748 in '85; but they
directed their efforts this time to increase their majority of'86 and tried
to recover tbat of '85, in face of a
strong opposition on the part of the
government, whioh brought strong influence to bear by giving oot an army
contract in the neighborhood. The
olection was hotly contested and a
largely increased vote was brought out
on both sides. The result of the poll
was declared this morning as follows:
Mather, liberal, 5155; Hatch, conservative, 4300; liberal majority 846. In
'86 the vote stood Robert Peacock,'
liberal, 4592; Lord Grey De Wilton,
conservative, 4135, Liberal majority
457. Thus the liberals suceeded in
nearly doubling their latest majority,
and show an increase of 563 votes,
while conservatives add 164. The
liberals claim this as victory enough,
although they were unable to get back
the famous majority of 1885.

A NEW SCHEME.
London, March 23.—Acting under
the suggestion of a Lancashire gentleman, who promised to give a first donation of 1,000 pounds for the purpose,
Mr. Thos W, Russell, unionist member of parliament for South Tyrone,
is consulting his friends with the
view to starting a company to stock
boycotted farmers in Ireland with eligible tenants from Ulster or Scotland.
The money is to be advanced to these
new tenants upon interest of four percent, and everything done to enable
them to carry on their farms success*
fully. It ib supposed that the scheme
would break the plan of campaign
banks, and force a relinquishment of
that method of agitation. It is probable that the campaign will be formed,
and the idea put in active operation.
Several farmers of Ulster have already
offered to take holdings upon these
conditions on the Massarene estate in
the South.
IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.
London, March 22.—In tbe house
of commons this evening, Sir William.
Vernon Harcourt declared that Attorney-General Webster's identification with the proceedings before the
Parnell commission, had destroyed
the impression that the government
was impartial and added weight to the
charges made by the Tunes. The attorney-general, he said, would doubtless now tell how and when he first
learned of Pigott's character, and also
whether he waa informed when Houston burned Pigott's correspondence.
SirR. Webster said he had never
vouched to the government for the authenticity of the letters. Sir W. Harcourt ought to know that no counsel
ever vouohed for the truth of what he
proposed to prove by the evidence of
the accused. Sir W. Harcourt, he
said, was questioning him because he
knew that a certain section of the press
was only too ready to turn the suggestions to accusations. Regarding
Pigott, he arguod, that he had no right
to Iceep him in the witness box becauso he thought he oould not stand a
cross-examination. He (Webster) had
informed the commission of what
Pigott had said and put Pigott's letter
into the hands of Sir Oharles Ruiell
fire days before Pigott went into tbe
witness box. (Ministerial cheers).
Regarding Sir W. Harcourt's statement that the Tiiites' apology could
only have been written by a pettifogging coercive knave, he would say that
that knave stood before the house at
the present moment. (Conservative
cheers). He could assure the hon.
gentleman that the charges brought
against him had not made him anxious
in tho slightest degree. There wu
much disorder during Sir R. Webster's
remarks, and James F. X. O'Brien,
the member for South Mayo, wu aeveral times warned by the chair to cease
his interuptions. Mr. Parnell said he
should not have intervened in the discussion but for the foot that Sir R.
Webster's remarks gave a faint echo of
Lord Salisbury, equivocal language
respecting the forged lotters. If Lord
Salisbury choose to pin a relic of hii
faith upon those letten, the come-
Juences would be upon his own head,
n the witness box he (Parnell) had
testified under oath his entire lick of
knowledge of any of the letters, and
Sir R. Webster had not ventured to
put him a single question concerning
them. What member, he aaked,
would uot venture to expreu the
doubt that the letten were formdl
Mr. Fowler did not appear and Mr.
O'Oonnor said, "He's a coward." Sab-
sequently O'Connor withdrew this expression at the request of the ohair.

Saturday Evening. March 93, 1889.
In to-day's issue   we  print   tho
second and   last  instalment   from
"Progress" on "The Mill   and   tho
Bridge" question.   Tho first letter
of our correspondent, published yesterday, may bo summed up ns stating the extent  of  the operations,
and the consequent advantages   to
the city of the proposed mills, which
we will suppose, to avoid unnecessary argument, is not  drawn  from
our correspondent's imagination in
the slightest particular, but  is   an
exact   and   wonderfully    accurate
prediction of just what tlie mills'
operations will be and   their  effect
upon   this  city.   The   concluding
letter, to-day, has  for  its  points,
disparagement of the district south
of the river, tributary to this city ;
a statement of the difficulties which
the bridge  at  the  proposed  site,
opposite tlio oity, would throw in
the way of the mills, as an obstacle
to navigation,   and   a   declaration,
"with authority," that "if the bridge
be constructed across the river in
front of the city, as has been  proposed, the Ross, McLaren mills will
■not be built on the Fraser, in accordance with  their  first  intentions,"
This might be put in another way,
which is of  course  implied,   that
unless it is agreed that  tho  bridge
may be built three miles or so above
the city, the mills will not be built,
Ac.   Perhaps it would have been
better, in the interests of the mills,
if, instead of an anonymous communication on  the  subject,   some
one, for the Ross, McLaren Mills,
had written "with authority," over
his own name throughout.   This is
what wo expected when  wo   stated
last week that we wero willing to
give tho Ross, McLaren Mills Company tho benefit  of  stating  their
case through these  columns.   Tho
figures and the unsupported "say
so" of an anonymous correspondent
are of very little value in a mutter
of this kind, and we can not impose
upon our readers by  printing  any
more lengthy, unsigned, communications of the sort.   With reference
to   our   correspondent's    profound
acquaintance with tho bed   of   the
river, and with nautical terms, wo
have not taken any soundings lately
(we are sure our correspondent has
not either) nnd shall not   waste any
time on those points.   If  properly
stated, and it is   considered   worth
while,   those   questions    will    lie
authoritatively settled.   We    will
just refer to ono   more  point,   and
have done with "Progress."   In his
letter yesterday our correspondent
laid the foundations  of his   whole
argument on behalf of the mills on
certain   figures  taken   from    the
"folder" "which is official,"   he  remarked," and cannot to  gainsaid."
Keeping in mind that the "folder"
is "official, and cannot be gainsaid,"
we cannot help   thinking   that   if
"Progress"  had  dipped   a   little
heavier into that  interesting  and
veracious document, he would not
have   been  found   disparaging so
heartily and   blunderingly,  as  he
does in to-day's communication, the
districts south of the river, tributary
to the city  und  the  bridge,   By
reference to the "folder" we find
"Municipality of Langley, population
2,500; area 100 squure miles; quality
of soil unexcelled, being loam on clay
subsoil," eto.  "Surrey Municipality,
population, 2,000; area, 120 square
miles; most distant point from Westminster,  17 miles;  about half  of
Surrey is prairie land and the rest
Is timbered; the soil is excellent for
all   agricultural   and  horticultural
pursuits, and enormous crops invariably reward the labor of the husbandman;   daily   stages run from
Westminster,   through   Surrey,   to
Blaine and Whatcom;  good roads
throughout  tho   municipality  connect with the trunk road to Brownsville,   directly  opposite   Westminster,"    This trunk road, it should
be explained, runs through the municipalities of Surrey, Langley, and
Chilliwack, and beyond as far as
Yale, nearly a hundred miles from
this city.     -'Municipality of Chilliwack, population 5,000; area, 180
square miles; distance from Westminster, 50 miles; the soil is abundantly rich," Ac.   "Municipality of
Delta, population 3,000; area, 50,-
000 acres;  distant 13 miles from
Westminster; land equal to any in
the world;  crops have never been
known to fail on the Delta, or, in
fact, in the whole district of Westminster."    Those are a few statements culled at random from the
"folder" concerning districts which
are all tributary to Westminster by
. road, and the "folder-' ie "offii
and oannot be gainsaid;"    Every
year, too, it must be remembered, is
adding greatly to the population,
development,, and   importance   of
theae rich and flourishing districts.
If all   our  correspondent's statement! and ai-guments are on a par
with hfe blindly unfortunate disparagement of the district south of tbo
river, tributary to this oity, then he
might far better never have written
a word. .
Alexander Dumoulin was arrested

(-The heart of the CoUricr-fntu. of
the "city of black diamonds" is sad
within him, and he is moved to indite the following mournful truths;
It is a harder task than the aver
age layman can understand—publishing a newspaper in a town of
this size. To tho average person it
might seem as though the editor occupied a sinecure, and that all he
had to do was to manipulate his
shears with dexterity and despatch.
But then those who are, fortunately
for themselves, without the pale of
tho ceaseless nowspaper grind, can
know little or nothing of the trials
which besot the path of the newspaper man. He is abused for doing
things of which he is innocent; maledictions are heaped upon his head;
bis paper is pronounced as no good,
and yet he must bear it all and murmur not. And often after all the
calumny and reproach possible have
been heaped upon him if he sometimes wrings his hands in despair, at
the perversity of the world in geneml who can wonder1 If, sometimes
he questions tho eternal fitness of
things, who that knows tho troubles
and sorrows with which his life is
beset, can blame Mini And yet
people will expect that tho news
dished up to them must be the freshest and crispest; it must not be
stale and above all it ■■must be palatable. Each individual expects that
his own particular ideas on any subject must receive from the editor the
utmost consideration, and in fact,
ho is oftentimes expected to adopt
each man's views and sink his own
individuality completely. His light,
if he has any, must be put under the
bushel, and in short, like charity, he
is oxpeoted to hope all things, believe all things—and no doubt, about
it, endure all things. And truly
often it is no wonder that he asks,
with him of old, "Is there not balm
in Gilead?" Well, there is very
little in the newspaper Gilead. We
speak from experience." The Courier has got a rather tougli field for a
newspaper with patriotic, go-aheitd
instincts, but, as the continual dropping of water doth wear away, in
time, the hardest of stones, so, wo
predict that our indefatigable and
public-spirited cotemporary will yet
be a most important means in reanimating the "dry bones" in the "city
of coals." There is no reason why
Nanaimo should take a "buck scut"
among tho galaxy of coming cities
in the "gem of tho west." Just
liow near the front she gets and
how soon "gets there" must depend very much on the discernment, patriotism, end shrewdness of
her citizens. Westminster, Vancouver, Victoria, Nanaimo, and Kamloops, we look upon as eacli and all
cities of promise—every ono having
their own peculiar elements of greatness, and each enfolding tho pregnant germ of a metropolis. British
Columbia, it is well to remember
occasionally, is an empire in extent
il resources, and almost a virgin
empire as yet; but the fair maid of
tho western seas is being sought and
wooed by the wealth and people of
other lands: the banns nave been
published; the espousals are nt
hand; the fruition shall be great,
Each of the cities of British Oolumbia Bhould be stirring—should be up
and doing—should be sloughing off
the coat of sackcloth and ashes, and
moss, which has adorned (?) some of
them for years, and be preparing to
reap the harvest, which has been
long waited for, but which now
whitens the fields" — should, in
short, bo putting themselves in the
way of developing into cities in
reality as well as in name. What
nre our cities now? What is the
population of the largest, compared
with what that of the smallest will be,
say five years hence i As a matter of
fact wo have no- cities, except by
courtesy—merely some very healthy
embryos. But tho embryos aro
ripening. Events move swiftly in
"these last days" of tho nineteenth
century, and in five years' time we
shall not be able to recognize ourselves. So much tho more encouragement and necessity to "gird up
our loins" and "rustle." This is our
"critical period"; tho various cities
of the province are in "their 'teenB*'
as it were, Those that recognize
these facts, and act energetically,
and promptly will "arrive there":
those that do not will "get loft,"
compamtely speaking, at any rato.
Buckle np, then, brethren, for the
race. If we all du our best tho
chances are that wo shall all pass
the "judge's stand" at about the
samo time, and "with both feet 1"

In every city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unflinching integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, make them
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have we
in the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1362 and
has, through all the vicissitudes of
twenty-seven years' trade, maintained the oven tenor of his way.
His transactions havo increased
year hy year, and tlio cirele of his
customers and patrons gradually
wideniug and his firm extending until he now controls a business unexcelled by auy similar establishment in British Columbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space is filled
with a complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery wave, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goods, houso furnishings,
iron pipe and fittings. This house
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and does overy variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, roofing, etc. There is no
house in the trade which carries a
more complete stock or whose facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods at lowest quotations.
The length of time this gentleman
has been in business and tho success he has attained are better
recommendations than the loudest
praise we could possibly give. We
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yet become acquainted with this firm, that none
in the Northwest lias a better reputation for fair and honorablo dealing.

A Oounty-Seat War Ended by a
Resort to Oarda
One of the hottest county-seat" waw ever
... known In the history of Dakota Territory
' v.*as settled by a gamo of poker that lasted
seventy-three hours and caused the com-
uieto nuspension of business tn two busy
iuwii3, writes a Deadwood (D. T.) oorre-
opondent to tho Bt. Louis Globe. Democrat.
In tho spring ot '61 tho citizens of Minnesota, a live mining town in tho Black Hills
district, Lawrence County, mado a bid for
tho county offices which were at Spcarfish,
a burg much larger than Minnesota, situ-
uted' in tho midst of a rich agricultural
country. So cleverly, did Minnesota work
tho political wiros in' the spring oloctions,
that sho was declared tho county head of
Lawrence County by a meager majority of
fifteen votes. Tho citizens of Bpoarflsh did
not take kindly to this turn in affairs, and
whon a demand was made for tho transfer
of the county records to Minnesota, they re-
lusod to obey tho official ordor and declared
themselves ready to fight it out, not through
the courts, as it would take too long to settle it, but with implements of war, man
against man, and tholr challenge was
promptly accepted, for one night one hundred and fifty armed citizens of Minnesela
stole quietly Into Bpearflsh, and, breaking
into the court-house, bore away the county
records from under the very noses of the
sleeping Spcarfish belligerents.
There was music in tho air the next morning when tho county records were found
missing, and tho Bpoarflsh community sot
itself ubout planning an expedition againit
Minnesela to recover the lost or stolen documents.
The menof Minnesela wore not somnolent.
It was a mining town, and the citizens were
wide-awake, thntty dare-devils who, aside
from filling tholr leather bolts with freshly-
panned gold-dust, relished nothing better
than a hand-to-hand encounter with their
fellow-man; and so, when ono night Bpoar-
itsh citizens, 250 strong, marched into
Minnesota, Ibey mot a warm reception,
und n pitched battle followed in which two
mon woro killed outright and twenty-five
badly wounded. During tho melee Charles
Williams and Edward Fenton, two Spear-
ilsh merchants, broke into tho offlco of the
town marshal, whero the county records
wero kept, and securing them, started for
Spcnrflsh. Thoir fellow-townsmen, hearing
of thoir success, betjan a retreat, being hotly pursued by tho infuriated Minnesela mon,
who had discovered the success of their opponents' strategy.
Tho two towns wero about thirty miles
apart, and when half this distanco had been
covered the contending forces woro so badly
usod up that their loaders concluded to negotiate a settlement of tho affair, if possible,
without more bloodshed, tor by this time
moro than fifty men wero suffering from
serious bullet wounds or cracked skulls.
Tho two factions camped ou tho banks of
Minnesela creek, which ran through a rich
valloy and divided tbe auriferous bills from
the undulating sweep of agricultral land to
tho south.
On this spot Anton Rorapaugh, marshal
of Minnesota, in whose veins ran an evenly-
balanced mixture of French.and Indian
blood, and Peter HacStay, a sturdy Scotch
dealer in farming implements and.the mayor of Bpearflsh, met in consultation, while
their constituents rested on their arms and
glared'at each other across tbe muddy
creek, ready to fight at a moment's notice,
yot willing to abide by tbe docision of their
loaders, whatever it might be.
A Uttle past noon tho arbitrators mot, and
their negotiations lasted far into tbo night
before a satisfactory plan bad been decided
upon, end this was bow the question of the
right of possession of the county seat honors was to be determined.
Two weeks before the county seat emeute
James Carney, better known as "Roddy,"
because of the great shocks of blazing hair
tbat covered his head, and William Ed-
wardB, known as "Blind Billy" on account
of having had one eye gouged out in a.barroom fight, had been caught in tho act of
stealing horses, and they were lying in jail
awaiting trial, but they well knew that
whatever tho sentence of the court might
bo, thoy would be strung up by the vigilantes, who had a set sentence of death
againBt ovory man caught ia the act of
horse-stealing. "Roddy" was languishing
behind the bars of the Minne-iela Jul, while
"Blind Billy ".was incarcerated in tbe
Bpearflsh prison. These two horse-thieves
woro to Bettlo the differences between the
citizens oftho rival towns by playing a game
of poker. Each man, at the opening of the
gamo, was to be given ono hundred chips,
aud tho ono who succeeded in winning all
tho chips was to bring the county seat honors to tho town that ho represented. In
order to insure an interest in tho game by
tbo men who played it, it was agreed that
tbe man who won should be granted his
freedom from tho minute that ho laid down
tho winning card. -With this understanding
tho horso-thievoB wero brought to Minnesota creek.
On the morning of May 10, '61, tho game
began. A rough wooden Utblo had been
brought from Bpearflsh and set on a level
spot, on .the south sido of tho creek, about
fifty yards from its banks, and at this tablo
tho iuen wero seated, Threo men were selected as an arbitration committeo to settle
any dispute that might arise ovor tho gamo,
nml around tho players was stationed a cor-
press around the table. It was an exciting °J an Introduction would savo many uncontest, tw ^ F&lw_s.att^?^.^ irar*
and an exciting mob cursing when one of ^.^^[[^^I.^.^^JS-P^
them bold a losing hand.  The orowd fought
of tbe first day of the game, the banks of
Minnesela creek presented tbo appearance
of a smart young mining camp.
-Fires of dry prairie grass and buffalo
chips lit up the scone with a fitful glow,
while over them the women of tho two
towns cooked the evening meal; children
romped on the fresh green earth; excited
men drank, wrangled and boasted; the
guards leaned heavily on their rifles and
eagerly watched the players, who eyed each
other narrowly as they fought with tho cool
determination of tigers. Now aad then ono
would mutter an oath as the cards turned
againBt him, but further than this neither
mau spoke a word, and when tbo morning of
tbo second day broke tbe two men were fighting as cooly and as determinedly as tho
night before, and neither had yet gained a
material advantage over the other. Refreshments wero brought them and they played
a.
Three days and three nights the game
continued, the players never for a moment's
rest leaving their seats during that time.
Tho fourth morning found the ployors almost
exhausted. Thoy leaned heavily on the table,
but novor for a moment lost eight of a point
in the game. "Roddy" had managed to
cut down his opponent's pile of chips und
was In the better spirits of the two.
The citizens of Minnesela wero exuberant
ovor tho prospects of their man winning
and poured whisky down their necks in generous quantities as they rallied their Bpoarflsh neighbors on their inability to win a
victory cithor at tho polls or on tho card
table.
The gamo had grown very exciting, as
"Roddy" hod won half his opponent's and
had opened a jock pot for fifty chips which
would "tap" "Blind Billy" if ho stayed,
and stay ho did. Ho shoved up his chips
without a tremor, though ho well know if he
lost them his doom was sealed. Ho had
reason to foel confident, for he hold four
jacks. As soon as tbo situation Jhad becomo known throughout the.camp evory
man, woman and child rushed in' the direction of the players, and the cordon
of guards was soon broken through with
the weight of the struggling mass of excited
people,
"Roddy " held three kings, and his face
wore a satisfied smile as he picked up tbo
cards as he asked " Billy " bow many he
wanted.
"None," replied Billy.
"The smile left "ReddyV face as he
heard thia, and his hands trembled slightly aa hodroppod two cards in front of him,
Slowly he lifted tbem. The first was a
troy, tho second—a king. Triumphantly ho
laid the four kings down beforo "Billy,"
whoso faco grew ashen pale aa his eyes
foil upon them, and, with a curse, he threw
hiB four knaves in "Roddy's" race and fell
back in tho ohalr completely exhausted.
Minnesota hod won tho day and " Roddy "
his freedom after seventy-three hours of
desperate fighting. The records wero
promptly delivered to the victors and Minnesela enjoyed the distinction ot being the
county seat of Lawrence County for four
years, when tho offices were moved to Dead-
wood.
Ono morning about a week aftor the game
tho lifeless remains of " Blind Billy " were
found dangling from the limb of a cotton-
wood in tho outskirts of Bpearflsh, and thus
ended the history of one of tho most exciting poker games over played in the Territory of Dakota.
UNDER FOURTEEN   FLAGS.
The Remarkable Adventures of General
Ronald Maetver.
John W. McDonald, whose reputation for
veracity is only second to his reputation
as a journalist, has published, under the
title of " A Soldier of Fortune," a record of
the remarkable adventures of General Ronald Macivor, an American born, who sorved
under fourteen flags. Tho story of General
Maciver's lifo is so replete with stirring incidents and dramatic events that it bis por
trait did not confront us on the title page,
and his letter of approval on Mr. McDonald's work appear in tho profoco, wo would
easily imagiao that we wero reading a work
of Dumas.
General Maclver was born in Virginia and
camo of excellent Scottish stock, descendants oftho illustrious Douglas clan, from
whom ho doubtless inherited his fearless
courage and iron will.
At the age of sixteen ho began his career
in the Sepoy mutiny and later joined tho
red-shirt clans of Garibaldi. It was at tho
bombardment of Capua that ho flrst at*
tracted notico for dare-devil courago by
standing alone on tho breastworks then under fire and returning the enemy's shots.
Aftor enjoying this sort of thing for somo
timo ho lit a cigar and jumped back into tho
trench where his comrades wero watching
him with amazement and alarm.
At various other periods in bis career
Macivor fought for the causo of the Confederacy in America, for Maximilian in Mexico
and under the flags of Brazil, tho Argentine
Republic, Crete, Cuba, France, Don Carlos,
Herzegovina, Servia and Greece.
It is not to be wondered at that so gallant
a soldier should havo at various times attracted tho attention of the softer sex in tho
countries whoro ho fought, for It seems
tho lumiuous*oyed Mexican or Brazilian
sonorlta is quite as vulnerable to the charms
of brass buttons as tho Knickerbocker maid
who capers nimbly at a West Point ball.
Maciver's love affairs aro not the least interesting incidents in his warliko career
and tend to soften the severe aspect of the
story.
GIVING  INSTRUCTIONS.
An Important Social Formality Cheapened
by Care-le-MMM
"There Is a great deal of carelessness
nowadays in giving introductions," said a
society leader to tho New York Mail and
Express reporter. "Formerly an introduction meant considerably more than it now
does, It was not given lightly and almost
as a matter of courso to any applicant Of
late tho formality of introduction has been
much abused. Thero in no longer tho same
caution and discrimination in tho matter.
People will often unthinkingly Introduce to
their friends the meanest casual acquaintances, of whoso moral and social standing
they know absolutely nothing, forgetting
that by so doing thoy are pledging their
own honor for their conduct, Itls of course
principally owing to the,'easy ud matter-
of-course fashion in whioh introductions aro
asked and obtained that adventurers and
fortune-hunters are ablo to secure a footing iu good society so easily. If proper
caro wero taken to soo that thoso Becking
introductions wero what tbey professed to
bo, tho operations of theso gentry would bo
rendered much moro difficult.   '
"People ought at least to bo as careful In
maintaining the standard of social life as
they habitually aro in regard to their business transactions. No man of ordinary
prhdonco will enter into business rotations
with a stranger which put it ln the power of
tho latter to injure his credit or commercial
standing in tho community by misconduct
or negligence, without making full Inquiry
and assuring himself, as far as possiblo, of
tho reliability of tbo other. Shrewd and
successful merchants aro very careful as io
whoso paper they indorse, or whom thoy1
recommend to positions of trust and ro-.

The Mission Railway bridgo is receiving tho attention of Mr. Ladner in tho
local parliament. Mr, Ladner will
ask what will be the width of the spans
of the proposed bridge; will there bo a
draw to allow vessels to pass through 1
what height will bo the lower part of
the bridge bo above high water ? All
these questions are important audit is
tu bo hoped they will be satisfactorily
answered. The bridge across Falso
Creek at Vancouver is an examplo of
what tho C. P. R. will do in the matter of bridge building to hotter its own
ends, even to the detriment of navigation.

pretty correspondent of the Montreal
Star in this way: "It will be remembered that Garth Grafton, correspondent for the Montreal. Star, did not

hor way for Japan. It will not surprise thoso who questioned her taste,
and her judgement in her estimate of
Victoria, to learn that she ia about to
discard blue hose, aa the Hamilton
Spectator puts it, and marry a Japanese. The taste that could condem
Victoria would very probably find a
responsive soul in the leathery complexion of a Jap."

The Uncle Turn's Cabin Company
posted tho oity pretty thoroughly, but
tho work might -as well have been left
"undone as a spectacle and eye-glass
agent came along and covered the
whole with. his advertisements. This
waa neither generous or fair treatment.
The would-be pre-emptora of a portion of the foreshore ou the south side
of False Creek have, it is understood,
been notified to remove the piling with
which thoy were enclosing the land

will probably be much litigation over
the matter.

Tho Victoria Times say3: "Tub Col-

The "figgers" of the great financial
journal are slightly astray, but not
mure so in this case than iu many uf
its efforts in other lines. Tho subscriptions when carefully added up
make a grand total of §927.85, but
how the Times could make tho list total tho round sum of 3200 ia beyond
our comprehension, perhaps tho editor
was feeling dull and the junior "devil"
was given the financial chair for tho
day. That "devil" will aoniedny make
a grand editor for tho Times if ho
doan't happen to be cut off in tho flower of his youth by u brick-bat from tho
hack window of tho Standard oflice.
Uncle Tout's Cnblu.
In spoaking of McFadden's famous
Uncle Tom's Cabin cumpany which
holds the boards at Herring's Opera
House noxt Wednesday March 27th,
an exohnnge Bays: "This popular old-
time production was presented at the
Grand Opera House last evoning to n
large and a appreciative audience. This
combination is without doubt uno of
the best organized companies on the
road, and gives the best representation
of Harriet Beecher Stowe's "Uncle
Tom." Little Marcia Putman, ns Eva
showed considerable ability in both
her acting and flinging, the emotional
parts being rendered in a fine manner.
A brilliant future is predicted for her,
possessing as she does all the essential
qualifications that are uecessary for
her success. Miss Georgia Putman,
as Eliza, did some clever acting. Uncle
Tom found n good exponent in the
person of Mr. B. F. Payne. Mr.
Seniors was eflioientas St. Clair, while
the part of Aunt Ophelia was very
ablely sustained by Mies Lillian Drew,
The charming little Putman twins sisters, in their duets and songs and
dances, were recalled again and again.
The Bay City Quartet tendered some
selections in very fino style. Certainly no one could regret the visit to tho
opera houso last night."
Report of lhe Mlnlilcr of Mines.
The annual report of the minister of
mines was presented to the houso on
Thursday. It contains the usual statistics of tho yoar ending 31st December,
1888, which include tno reports of tho
various gold commissioners, together
with u lengthy and valuable lcport by
Mi*. W. J. Sutton, government nssay-
er. This latter embraces a description
of tho Nicola, Lillooet, Illecillewaet
mines, which the assuyer vUited during the year. A list uf economic ores
found in the provinco is obtained in
the assayer's report.
Following is the gold yield of the
various districts:

The Counterfeit Votes*
Shortly before six o'clock last night
J. King, one of the proprietors of the
Eiokhoff Hotel, was arrested on the
charge of aiding and abetting a man
named Sims to escape from justice,
knowing the said Sims tu be guilty of
uttering forged bank notes, contrary
to the fnrm of statute in such cose
made and provided. The principal
chargo against King ib that he attempted to prevent Garvet Moure from laying an information against Walter
Mooro, and offering to replace the
counterfeit notes with good money.
It is alio oharged that he assisted Sims
to escape. He was released on bail.
The three cases came beforo the
police magistrate this morning and on
the application of Mr. Moresby thoy
were remanded till Tuesday to allow
of additional evidence being procured.
After the arrest of King, Mr. Moresby
sent Mr. Keory across the river to
look for the missing nnti Sims (McNeill), who was supposed to have
made his way to the American side,
and whose escape King was arrested
for aiding. Keory took a friend along
and thoy fuund their mnn nt Elgin
without any trouble; and this morning brought him safely to the city nnd
delivered him tu the authorities. McNeill says ho was making uo attempt
to escape, and Keery says ho came
back willingly. McNeill alao says lie
can prove how he came into poseis-
ion of the notes, and in tlmt way easily establish hii innocence As the affair now stands it is rather complicated
but it will stand a thorough and minute investigation.

Tho new photographic studio, opposite tho Colonial Hotel, Columbia
street, is now thoroughly completed,
and being built aud furnished in the
most modem and approved style, and
equipped with tho beat and latest instruments, scenery, etc., is without
doubt ono of Iho finest galleries in
Canada. Within the last twenty years
the art uf photography has made such
rapid advancement towards perfection
that it is now a subject of interest to
almost everyone. In the oast hundreds of thousands of ponplo have
taken it up in au amateur way, and
derive a great deal of amusement and
inatructiun therefrom. Now that tho
amateur outfits are made bo compact
and light, and are not tho cumbersome
things of a few years ago, in many of
the great cities it is ns common to see
a lady carrying a camera as a gentleman a cane. Mr. S. J. Thompson,
lato of the firm of Thompson & Bo-
vill, and present proprietor of the
above mentioned establishment, has
invested in a new apparatus by which
a room can be more brilliantly illuminated than by the use of electrieity. By
means of this light interesting home
sceues can be taken in the drawing
room, in the evening quite as well as
under a properly arranged skylight.
The permanent bromide portraits
which Mr. Thompson makes will undoubtedly take tlio place of tho crayon,
or India ink work. Aa a picture they
are superior, aud certainly aa a likeness. In Ihe framing department can
bo found frames and mouldings in gold
gilt, German gilt, oak and walnut, so
that any class of picturo can bo framed suitably. A very pleasant half
hour could bu spent looking ovor the
beautiful selections of engravings, photogravures, etchings, oto., to be seen
at the studio.
CORRESPONDENCE.
"So Surrender" Talks.
Editor Columbian.—I don't intond
to inflict upon your typos such a long-
winded effusion as appears over the significant jiom de /.fume "Progress," In
your last evening's issue on that worn-
out subject the "R. McL. Mills." The
writer, who has borrowed the oft heard
beseeching whine of this great representative of this great enterprise that ia yet
on paper, reminds me very much of the
Btory of" the old married couple who indulged in a grievous crying spell over an
imaginary calamity. The old lady, as
was natural, had for a long time been
expecting to present her loving 'husband
with a son and heir to thoir little patrimony, bnt sad to say none had yet appeared, and one day, after a heavy rain,
when the littlo creok that ran through
tho garden was swollen, Jenny looked
ont of the window and Immediately began to ery, when John asked what was
the matter, Tho motherly-hearted body
sobbing said she had been thinking that
if they had been lucky enough to get a
bairn, it might have been unlucky enough
to get drowned in the swollen creek, and
John, through sheer sympathy, joined in
tho crying spelt. So, Mr. Higgins and
his friend "Progress" are borrowing an
imaginary trouble about those "120"
lumber laden ships, for fear they might
get the paint nibbed off in squeezing
through tho bridge opening. If, as Mr,
Higgin's friend says, Vancouver has
offered "much greater inducements to
build tho mill," then, why not build tho
mill nt Vancouvor. Only a few days ago
Air. Higgins told it round town that he
had sent "his mon to look up a Bite at
tho entrance to the North Arm, where
the advantages would bo greater and the
risks fewer, and atill Mr. Higgins keens
pegging away In the vain hope of balking tho municipality of WeatmlnBter in
an enterprise, compared with which, ten
thousand such talked of mills would only
be ns a drop in tho bucket.
No Surrender,
Im Mills and lhe llrlfl-xe.
Editor Columbian, — In my letter
of yesterday I attempted to show the
value the Ross, McLaren mills would be
to our city, But I, nor can auy one tell
what tho actual loss to tho oity would be
should they he built olsowhore, Thoughtful mon will agree with me that tho Toss
will bo vastly greater than if they had
never been contemplated. AU business
men know that when a centre of industry
is once established that all wants gravitate to that eentro to bo supplied, and in
tho very nature of things other Industries
will bo established to supply other needs,
and instead of any obstruction being
thrown in the way of the progress of our
city it should he the ambition of every
citizen to use every laudable means not
only to make it a desirable seaport town
but the centre of Industries for Rritish
Columbia. But this ean novor bo if a
bridge is built whero it will in any wiso
obstruct our limited harbor. Many of
our citizens seem to have quite Utopian
Ideas of the valuo of the bridge, Only
give us a bridgo, and the future of tha
oity is assured, they say. Now, except
a little strip of land in front of the city,
there is bnt very little land for ten miles
np or down the river, and fifteen milea
back tbat will bo settled by thoae who
oan afford to buy bettor. Thoso who are
familiar with the nature of the country
across tho river will bear me out In tho
statement. The soil ia very poor and
covered with huge fir trees or their remains that would cost as muoh or more
to clear than would purchase the belt
Delta land, of vastly superior quality.
What, then, I aak, will furnish traffio to
warrant the construction of a traffio
bridge evon if there wore no objections
to Its being built on the ground of its
being an obstruction to navigation. The
railway and rivor will always bo the
moat expeditious if not the cheapest
means of reaching tho city, and if tho
energies of the city bo directed towards
making it a desirable market for the
farmers of the surrounding country they
will do their trading hero, Now, I speak
with authority when I say, that if a
bridge be constructed across the river in
front of the city, as has been proposed,
the Ross, McLaren mills will not be built
on the Fraser river in accordance with
their first intentions, and withont doubt
those other enterprises that would naturally follow in their wake will also go
to add to the wealth and influence of our
rival, Vancouver, I verily believe that
were tbe bridgo constructed now, thore
would be but a slight increase in tho
traffio across the river. I grant you that
tho K. de K. ia but a parody of a ferry
boat,aiid our mayor and aldermen should
see to it that a safer and larger ferry is
provided. There has been an attempt
made on tho part of one correspondent to
show that a draw-bridge would be no
hindrance to the navigation of the river;
probably not for steamers and auch croft
as your correspondent lias been familiar
with, but it would certainly be for
that class of vessels that would be
likely to load for foreign ports,
say vessels from 500 to 2000 tons burden,
I am permitted to quote as authority
for my statement a well-known pilot
who has had an experience of 20 years
on tho rivers and coast of tbe Atlantic
seaboard, and is well-known as the best
pilot on tlie Fraser—he says: "No pilot
of common noise would attempt to take
a heavy laden ship down through a draw
bridge such as could be constructed in
front of the city}" "no ship owner would
take tho risk except at such an Increase
of rates, that consigners could uot compete with other miffs;" "no underwriters
would take the risk," Consequently tho
mill company would ho compelled to go
where they will not be handicapped in
their business. Just above the proposed
site of tbe bridge two channels' unite,
one following tho north, tho other the
south, shore of the river; the river
widens up in front of Sapperton, and between these channels is a sand-bar, which
at present has but 2 or 3 feet of water,
leaving no room for a pilot to "wind"
a ship to enable it to pass the draw, bo
that a loaded ship would need to back
down all the way from the place of loading, and then, should it pass safely
through the draw, there would not be
room below the bridge to safely "wind"
the ship, owing to the narrowness of the
channel all along tho front of the oity.
In the opinion of this pilot, a bridge
across the rivor anywhere in front of the
city wonld present an almost Insuperable
difficulty in the way of navigation for
that class of sailing vessels that would be
required for profitably freighting lumber.
Again, I understand that the Brunott
Saw Mill Co. intend to enlarge and put
in improved machinery, which will very
largely increase their output of lumber,
and as thoy too will expect to export
they will also be sufferers, so that thoy
will be compelled to either forego their
contemplated improvements, or follow
the Ross-McLaren Mill Co. to Vancouvor, whero thoy will be welcomed with
open arms instead of obstructions being
thrown in their way. Surely the oity
will not allow tho narrow-mindedness of
any one to drlvo*away industries of auch
vast importance. I have other arguments to present but the length of this
article requires me to stop. Tlie importance of the question discussed is my
only pica for presuming to trespass upon
your forbearance. Probably this will
be my last offence in that direction.—I
am, kc, Progress.
