A personal friend of Tamberlilr,
the fniiious tonor, sends to a London
newspaper the following story of an
incident which happened at Madrid,
where tlie artist lived for the last
12 or 13 years:—"One morning wo
were walking through the bird market, when suddenly he drew a bank
note for one thousand franca -from
his pooket, bought up all the little
creatures, opened the cages, and
shouted laughingly as the birds Hew
up into the air, 'Go and be free, my
brothers!'"
Although divorce has come to be
regarded as an institution of which
the United States has almost a monopoly, a return just brought down in
tho British parliament shows that it
has a far greater hold upon the
Motlior Country than most people
suppose, from the lime of the
foundation of the English divoreo
court in 1857 down to 1887 it has
had to deal with 13,345 petitions,
2,784 of them being for judical
separation, and 10,561 for divorce
or dissolution of marriage. Of the
former 985 wore successful, of the
latter 7,321. In the first year there
were 200 divorce suits, and in 1887
the number waB 450. The average
for tho thirty yoars was 171, and
the number is   steadily   increasing.
Was getting short—A policeman
came upon thn pair in a doorway on
Jt'il'erson avonue tho othor day. Ono
was a young man of innocent look
and stoop-shoulders, and the other
a keen-eyed antl complacent individual of 40. "Any trouble here 1"
queried the officer. "Oh, no—none
whatever," answered the complacent
mnn. "Not a bit, sir, replied the
young nran. "But I thought I heard
loud talking." "That was me,"
siid the young imm. "I lent §10 to
n man on the train, $7 to another at
the dopot und cashed a $15 cheque
for a chap down on the corner. This
gent wants me to advance him $25
on a 8500 bond, and I was telling
him 1 couldn't possibly do it as I
um running short of cash. I want
to oblige, you know, but he ought to
havo asked mo sooner."—Detroit

Somebody tells in the Stage the
fallowing regarding the dimensions
of noted actresses' waists: Ellen
Terry hns one of the largest waists
—twenty-eight inches. Mary Anderson's waist a few yenrs ago was 24J
inches, now it is 26 inches. One of
her favorite shades in dress is green;
she likes soft, clinging liberty silks.
She always wears her hair very loose.
Miss Eastlnke has 11 twenty-eight-
inch waist. Hersoft fluffy hair and
the soft easy-going silk gowns she
wears givo Iter a rather untidy appearance. Mrs. Bernard Beers
doesn't wear stays, and has a waist
twenty-seven inohes. Dorothy
Dene'.-! waist is twenty-four inches.
Mary f'orkc has a twenty throe inch
waist. Kate Vaughan has the
smallest waist on the stage. It
measures 2 U, inches. Mary Moore's
waist is twenty-two inches. Miss
Norroys has 0 twenty-two inch
waist. Graco Hawthorne's waist is
twenty-five inohes, And so on; but
we can't waste any more space.
A GREAT DAY.
New York Holds a Great Celebration in Houor of Washington'!*
First Inauguration.
Monster Military Parade, Speeches
by Great Men, and a Word from
the President.
Mr. J. J. C. Abbott, of Montreal,
Likely to be the next Minister
of Railways.
S.-iys the Missionary Review, of
Kew York and London : Ohurch
habits have much to do with success
iu evangelism. 1. A habit of accepting her mission to preach the gospel to nil men, una disposing all
things with reference to that divine
purpose. From the hour of organization -from conception of tho idea
of a new church, in all arrangements
looking to pastor, sito for building,
details of structure, administration,
oto., everything should havo in view
reaching the peoplo to savo souls.
Wo must not invest any "consecrated
building" with a faiso sanctity. The
only "tomplo" or "church" known to
the New Testament is the body of
believers. Our permanent model is
not the temple but the synagogue, a
place of assembly free from rij,*iil,
frigid lines of separation and a
cumbrous ceremonial. And any
place is to be preferred for purposes
of such assembly where the greatest
number can be reached and laved.
2, A habit of making even the poorest feel at home. The oftener the
people can bo got into tho ohuroh
building by any legitimate means or
attraction the better. To connect
the edifico with homelike associations
und frequent gatherings makes it
attractive. Hence all popular meetings on temperance, philanthropic
nnd benevolent work, and for innocent recreation and entertainment,
help to run the stream of popular
life through the church as a channel,
aud a stream will naturally flow in
its usual channel. People who go
to a church-building through the
week will naturally go thore on the
Sabbath. But if shut doors oompel
them to find some othor place every
other day, why should open doors on
Sunday find thom thronging the
place of prayer.

THK NEW YOltK CENTENNIAL.
New ioiiK, April 30.'--Long before
9 o'clock, tho hour appointed for  the
speoial service of thanksgiving   ut St.
Paul'fi church, Broadway and streets
in tho vicinity were filled  to overflow-
inij with sightseers  eager  to   (Jain   »
glimpse of the prem-lental party  ns it
came to attend the  services  to  upen
the Becond day V celebratioa of   the
centennial.   At trthb president arrived, and was met by a committee of
tho veatry, and escorted   to   the west
porch where the rector and full vestry
of St. Paul's received him.   The president was then escorted to the Washington pew, which ho and the cabinet occupied.   The church waa crowded with
distinguished  Americans.    After the
services the presidential party proceeded to the sub-treasury on Walll street,
where the literary exercises were held.
In front of the sub-treasury  building
a sen ot heads greeted the eye, and all
about the spot as  far as ono could see
was packed.   Before the president ar-.
rived the 22ud regiment band  gave a
concert.   President arrived  from St.
Paul's shortly after ten, tho procession
having passed through a wild ovation
aud every available space  along  the
route ocaupied by men, women  and
children.   The  president and cabinet
were esoortod to seats on   the already
crowded  platform.   When  all   were
seated Chtiirmnn Gerry,   said;—"Fellow citizens:—A hundred years ngo on
thiB spot  Georgo   Washington,   first
president of the, United States,   took1
the oath of office upon the Huly Bible;
that sacred voliiinohere to-day silently
attesting the basis   upon   which   our
nation was constructed, aud   tho dependence of our peoplo upon Almighty
Ood.   In tho words, thou, of one of
tha founders of tho government, with
hearts overflowing with gratitude to our
Sovereign Benefactor, for granting to
us existence, for continuing it to   tho
present psriodand forthe accumulation
ou us of blosBings spiritual ami temporal
through life, may wo  with   favor beseech Him so to continuo thom as best
to promote His glory and our  welfare "   Richard S. Storris, then prayed and a poem by Whittier followed.
Clmuncey M. Bepew   then  delivered
the  oration  ho had written for tho
occasion.        The    president     next
made tho   following   short   address:
"Fellow citizens: My task to-day is of
a very exacting character  and  makes
it impossible that I should deliver  an
address upon this occasion.   Foreseeing this, I early  notified  your  committee that your programme must enn-
tain no address by me.   The selection
of Mr. Depew as orator of this occasion
made a further speech not only difficult  but  superflous  (applause).   He
h-is mot the demand of this great  occasion on its own high level; he   has
brou-'ht before us  tho  incidents  and
lessons of  the   lirst  inauguration   of
Washington.    We seem to have  been
part of that admiiing and almost worshipping throng that filled these streets
two years ago.   We hnvo  come  into
the serious but always  inspiring   presence of Wa*Uh;,toii (applause). ' He
was thoincarnatW of duly, and   ho
teaches to-dny these great lessons that
thoso who would o-Kociato their names
with events Uut shall outlive a century
oan only ih> so by high consecration to
duty (applause. * Solf seeking has   ni>
pubhc   observanco   or   anniversary.
Washington -"coined to come  to   the
discharge-of the  duties of  hit  high
placo impressed with a sense  of   his
unfamiliarity   with  these  uew   culls
upon him.   Modestly doubtful of   his
own ability, trusting implicity in   tho
siiEtaiiiing helpfulness and  graco   of
that God who rules  the  world,   presides in tho councils of nations and   is
able to supply overy human  domand.
Wo havo made martellous progress in
material things, stately and enduring.
The shaft at tho  national  capitol   in
Washington symbolizes that ho is yet
the first American citizen, "(applnsie).
The  president    occupied    but    live
minutes in the delivery of his  speech.
The most impressive  feature  of  tho
whole day occurred when tho literary
exercises    at  the  sub treasury were
over.     The    presidential   parly   in
eleven carriages drovo over the routo
of tho pMco-sion up to the reviewing
stiiidoii Madi; nn S'junrc, between two
lines of tro ipa <ira\vti up at cither curb
of the itreet.   The president's carringe
wasdrawu by four hoises in silver harness.   It had two footmen.   Tho other
carringys wero drawn liy  two   horses.
Tho president did not attempt to stand
during tho  whole  of   llio   time   the
regiments passed  in   review,  but   nt
times he stood in front of the stanl, supported ou either side by members of the
committee of  tho  army.   Bands   of
mUMo    woro   distributed    profusely
throughout the parade, nnd each band
played ite most stirring and brilliant
music as it passed the  stand  of  tho
chief magistrate.   After tho last detachment passed thoroyiowing stand,
the president was taken in chnrgo by
the committee and escorted back to th
residence of vicfi'Prasidont  Morton.

Shuswap and Okanagnu Bailway passed the Houso to-day. Mr. Mara
drew attention to tho resources of tho
region proposed to bo opened up, and
said that it could raise enough wheat
to supply the province with Hour, It
is estimated to cost $25,000 a mile.
He dwelt on the rich mineral wenlth,
Mr. Mam said the promoters were
capable of carrying out the project.
Tlie Houso again got through a great
deal of work to-day. Orders for Bills
entitled "An Act relating to bills of
exchange, cheques and promisiory
notes;" "An Act respecting tho Militia
and defence of Canada;'' "An Aot to
amend the Act respecting the Rocky
Mountains National Park of Canada"
were discharged. These measures will

was passed.
The Houso went into committee to
consider certain proposed resolutions
to authorize the granting subsidies to
certain railway companies and towards
the construction of certain railways

Mr. APatullo', editor and proprietor of the Woodstock Sentinel-Review,
onu of the leading provincial papers of
Ontario* is at the Hotel Vancouver,
He wai: seen hy A News-Advertiser, representative, to whom ho expressed
the pleasure the trip to the coast had
offered to him. lio has been about
two months ou the trip, taking in
Southern California and tho const all
tho way up, his object being pleasure'
and information. One thing that strudk
him wss tho excellence of the newspapers in British Columbia ami all
over the Pacific slope. As an experienced and very successful journalist his opinion in this score may be regarded as of value. This fact is very
largely recognized by Americans, and
he observed that in western American
cities especially that those material
interests whieh were dependent upon
the growth of any place did all iu their
power to assist journalistic enterprise.
In Southern California, in tho orange
districts, Mr. Patullo found a great
man*/ Canadians, many of whom were
loading citizens und had contributed
very, largely to the success of' the various industries in whtch they had engaged. He thinks that Vancouvor is
splendidly situated and likes the city
very much. He also expressed him*
self pleased with Victoria aud.. other
parts of the province he had visited.
A series of letters from His pen concerning his trip is appearing. in the
Sentinel-Review, which will, no doubt,
contain some interesting chapters on
British Columbia. A brother of Mr.
Patullo was for four years in Cariboo,
from 1860 onward, uud -vi-i be remembered by many old residents. He
leaves to-day for the ea3t and will
make the return trip by easy stages.- -

A Slraage autcmenf.
A certain deeply read and highly
educated gentleman ef Victoria is a
firm believer' in theosophy, and he
has studied that'religion or science until ho has become thoroughly familiar
with its teachings. In a conversation
the other day, he said he believed the
time was not far distant when he
would be able to perform a most wonderful feat, whioh was nothing more or
less than to dernaterialize hims-jlf into
the chemical elements or atoms of which
everything is composed. Just how he
proposes to do it, is not explained, but
he says that when he succeeds he will
be able to do most wonderful things.
No prison or chains could bind him,
for by resolving himself Into atoms,
ho will bo able to pass through the
thickest trails. He says that nil sub*
stances, no matter bow apparently
solid, nre not solid; this para*
dox ho explains by Baying, what
is already woll-known to scientific
men, that everything is mado up
up of atoms, with distinctly defined
spaces between these atoms, the interstices I'cimt so infinitely minute, however, that it is hardly conceivable that
they are there. The gentleman says
thnt everything, even the human frame,
is made up of chemical elements (of
course all scientific men know this);
now ho proposes, by means of tho oo-.
cult knowledge he is to i-nin, to resolve
himself into the original elements, nud
thoy again-aro to be resolved into gases
which are to be so finely subdivided aa
to bo ablo to permeate and pass
through the most solid substance.
After passing through he claims to bo
able to materialize these gases and elements again, and instantly stand forth
a complete man again. To do this, ho
says, requires that tho hody bo iu a
perfect state of health, and to reach
this state requires a long course of
training aod special purifications, but
when thoy are complote, and the proper
state of perfection is reached, he says ho
will bo able to wslk up to a stone wall,
or an iron door, and: pass  through   it
i'ust as easily as though it woro but a
arricr of fog. Tho dcmnterializing
and materializing is done to quickly
that to su observer it would appear ht
though he juit walked throigh tho obstruction.' The gentleman is sincere
in hii belief, nnd in all matters is pre-
iumnhlyiane, and the clear and-Tucid
wny in which he explains, Iho way
in whioh this seeming impfissibility
oan bo dune would almost ptrsunde
anyono to believe in it as firml^-ty-he
docs himself. If he ever doits'succeed
in this, the-old saying of "bolts and
bars do uot a i:rison msko," 'etc., will
ccrtninly bo truer than eyat.-Sj^icforfo

A perusal of the council proceedings will ihow that; as was reasonably anticipated, a notice of motion
has been given for tbe introduction
at the next meeting of council of a
by-law providing for a oity loan of
|60,00*) for street  improvements
and $15,000 for putting the park in
shape.   Ihe former sum might well
have been larger, we think; but, if
judiciously expended, may suffice to
do all that tan reasonably be expected in the way of street opening
and improving this season.   The
$15,000 for the park is, unqualifiedly, a good proposition, antl one
whioh should have the hearty support of every citiien.   Incidentally,
some will, of cooney hy proximity
to the park, be sure benefitted by
thil   proposed   expenditure than
others; bnt the park itself is a city
institution, which, it put in proper
shape, -"-"-aot fail of being a boon to
every'citizen and enhancing the
value of all oity property, by adding
to the attraction! of the city and to
its consequent desirability ai a home
for incoming population,   Improvements once  made on the park, too,
will be of permanent value, and the
benefits will begin to be reaped by
the oity ae soon as the money ia expended.   If any  other argument
were required in favor of a vigorous
policy with respect to park improvements, it will be found in the fact,
whioh is well known, that the provincial, exhibition will be held in
thia city in October, and a portion
of the park grounds must be prepared  for this purpose without delay.
It goes without saying, also, that in
the  success of the exhibition the
entire city is interested.   Returning
to the subject of the proposed loan
of $60,000 for opening and improving  streets, we would repeat and
emphasise the suggestion made yesterday, to the effect that those sections which,i*-**n_ii. comprehensive
and disinterested survey of the situation, present the strongest claims
for new streets and improvements,
ihould receive the great bulk of the
expenditure.   Thia is, theoretically,
ef course, what will be done, but
every care ahould be taken that
good theories and intention! do not,'
as they are liable to, miscarry in the
practice.   In view of the park expenditure  incidentally  benefitting
the eastern  portion of the city, it
will not be amiss to suggest tbat, io
the apportionment of  the $60,000
for   Btreet  «-**-,< the preference
•hould. be given, other thing! beir-g
equal, to 'the western end ot the
city.

Nannimo Courier. The suggestion
of our cotemporary is, a good one
without doubt. Th* trouble, however, about a press, association in
thia province would: appear to be to
get the press to asiooiate. For instance, about six monthi ago, when
the aubject of the formation of a
press association was being discussed, molt of the provincial journal! expressed themselves in favor
of the abstract idea, but, in the case
of the Vanoouver contingent at
least, proceeded to anticipate the
blackballing process by reading each

'BIAN | haa been the experience of all coun
trieiwhoje early condition wo that
of forest,  Not only do annual floods
carry destruction antl ensuing disease
1 to the cities and farmsteads along
the river banks till either the river
is fenced out by dykei or the people
an driven from the shores.   That is
perhsps tife least part of  the evil.
The land that hai been denuded of
trees becomes denuded also in course
of time of soil, the rush of  waters
after heavy rains carrying, off those
qualities of the soil which fit it for
the food of vegetable life, and hills
that at one time furnished sustenance for happy villages become a
poor home for economical sheep and
goats.   The surplus of population
becomes a problem which can only
be settled by emigration.   In countries not peculiarly favored, as Great
Britain is, with near surroundings
of cloudy seas, the  evils  of  the
drought are greater than the evils of
the Hood.   In the absence of forests
which are the great reservoirs of
moisture, retaining it in the day of
plenty and giving it forth gently in
the  time  of  need, countries with
large land  areas  experience long
droughts.   The Mail take! a rather
melancholy view of the future of
Canada on account of the rapid de-
forestuation of its lands, in tbe following  expressions:   "Canada has
juit begun to know what droughts
mean.   She need not imagine that
these are merely occasional visitations against which no provision is
to be made.   We have been for a
century making preparations to welcome the droughts of Alia and when
they come they come to itay.   Then
for the watering of our how heaven-
moiitened  soil we ihall, unless wo
are wise in time, be reduced like tho
fellahs of Egypt to irrigation, a process whieh the pricei we get for our
products will not cover.   We have
taid  bare much land which it will
not pay to cultivate, but which will
bear trees as well as any.   Such
land ihould all be returned to forest.
In ume places it is sufficient to let
it alone, simply protecting it from all
destructive i*-lnences and thinning
the wood  as, it   grows.    In other
places it will pay to plant.    Though
the crop is not soon reaped, yet it
adds to the money value of the land,
and in any case it il a debt due to
the oountry and to posterity.   Men
may indeed hope themselves to profit
by the good to which, they contribute,   In  some of the western region! where  forests ware wanting,
the  land comparatively barren and
the rivers nearly empty, a change
fias  been   wrought  in   fifteen  or
twenty yeara which  haa even made
the riven navigable.   We need only
lay that  un ounce of prevention is
worth  a  pound  ef  cure, and far
oheaper."   The  -warning conveyed
in the above and the auggestions as
to the obvious remedy are both well
timed and worth*, of being marked
and acted on so, fax, at least, as part
of the eastern and middle portion of
Canada ia con-awned.   fa this province  the suggestion to plant trees
would savor rather of irony at present, but precautions should be taken
againit  needless   destruction  and
waste of our forest wealth.

■I'Uo Peculiar Kentliig-1'Iiico of tho Dead
of a Mexican Town.
" Don't you want to see Bomethlng lancy
In the cemetery line?"
It was Ur. Williams, the United BtaleH
Consul at Guanajuata, wbo spoke to a correspondent of the St. Louis Globe-Democrat.
Wo were standing in front of tho Hotel de
la Union, and had beon discussing tho National Cemetery at Washington.
"Woll,Idon,tcaro,l,IrepUed, and, suiting the action to the word, followed him out
in lhe utreet and to the place whoro tho
" burros " woro kept. Wo soon reached
tho cemetery, a half mile from the town. It
Ib on tho top of a hill, and only approached
on ono Bide, from every otber point you
looked down eheer precipices. Tho cemetery proper waa walled iu, and in this
wall, which is ten feet thick, are the vaults
for the coffins From tho inside it looks
moro liko an immense chest, with a thousand small drawers, tban any thing elso.
On tbe head of oach drawer was tho name
of Its occupant, with occasionally tho word
"perpituidad." That means the body is al-
I lowed to stay in that vault forever. But as
' it costs one hundred dollars to liavo that
word engraved there, it is looked upon as a
needless extravagance by tho average Mexican, and lie rents it for five years. After
tho live years aro up the bones aro taken
. out and dumped ln the vault beneath.
The body is novor burled in a coffin, as In
tho United States, except among tho rich.
The undertaker furnishes the coffin to carry
tho body to tho grave in, nnd it is there put
into tho Btone box. Whero tho family of tho
deceased can not afford to hire a coffin, they
uro allowed to use one of the city coffins.
There aro six of these, and they aro out
nearly nil tbo time.
If the people do not want to pay for tho
uso of a vault, they oan bury their dead in
tho vacant spaco in tho center of tho cemetery, Tho body is allowed to stay in tho
ground for awhile and is thon* dug up.
Underneath tbe cemetery is a large vault,
1,000 foot long, 14 feot high aud 0 foet wide.
This Is tbo llnnl resting placo. Here the
bonos are dumped for tbo last time, and although the cemetery at Guanajuata is only
■li years old, thero nro 20,000 cubio feet of
bono3 there. The vault in another year
will bo full. Thore are twenty-five mummies in tho vault
When wo got back among tho small
vaults once more I noticed a cabinet photograph of a young Mexican lady who was
killed in 1883 by hor lover. It created a
great sensation at the time, and when Bho
was buried hor parents vory kindly put hor
picturo on her head plate,
As wo were returning wo  passed  n
"Fanteon Municipal" funeral. The coffin
Is carried by two mon to tho foot of the
mountain and thoro transferred to the back
I  of a burro.
BRUNO'S  INTELLIGENCE.
How a Smart Dog Fooled His Mate anil
Secured a Warm Comer*
Tbo anecdoto in tho Now York Examiner,
relating to a knowing dog who could only
bo unseated from a favorite "chair by cries
of " cats," and at lust turned tlio ruse successfully upon his mistross, reminds the
writer of a true story told him, u few years
ago, by a Baptist doocon in Wbitosvillo, N.
Y., which may amuse some of the younger
readers:
Mr, C—was one of the early Bottlers of
Allegany County, and whito clearing up his
!und owned two largo Newfoundland dogs.
Theso wore not pormitted to come into tho
houso oxcopt In tho kitchen. In tho chimney corner was ouo particular spot which
in cold weather was tho favorite dozing-
place of tho dogs. As thero was only room
enough for one to lio down at a timo, tho
l placo was greatly coveted by both, and
whou onco in, nothing could Induco the
favored occupant to vacate until he was
-, ilrnos-cd to do so. On a cold day one of
w the dogs was asleep in this littlo nook,
when the other came in with Ills muster
from the barn, and immediately a sharp
battlo began for tho right of possession.
The now-comer barked, bit and worried his
mato, and oven tried to draw him out of his
enug quarters by main force, but all to no
puvposo. Bccing ho was not likely to succeed in that way, a now thought Boomed to
strike him, for he suddenly ceased hip attack
and darted for the door. Presently ho returned with a largo bono In bis mouth.
Thero was no meat on tbo bona It was
weather-beaten and bleached by exposure,
ond ns dry as a last year's stick of hickory
wooil; but Bruno crouched down on tho floor,
nud began gnawing it with groat apparent
satisfaction. This was too much for tbo caption of tho other. His oyos snapped; his
tail twitched; his tongue ran around his
[jaws j and at last, unable to contain himself
i.ny louger, he mudc a spring for tho bone.
Vina was just what Bruno scorned to expect and had planned for, because hb instantly droppsd tho bono and darted for tht?
chimney-corner. And whon master Jack
i aw how he bad beon befooled and turned
upon Bruno, no amount of teasing or worry
could induce tho latter to leave tlio warm
cornor, but ho held tho fort successfully
just as long ub he choso to remain thero.
CAUGHT NAPPING.
A Good Story Told at the Expense of Kt-n*
tuoky'i Junior Senator.
"Joo" Blackburn, as is well known, is not
a great stickler for ceremony or official oil-
quotto, Tho other day, says the Now York
Tribune1.! Washington correspondent, ho lay
strotohed on a loungo in one of tbe rooms at
llio capital, reviewing some committeo rp*
iioi't about to be submitted to tho Senato,
Tlio air was sultry, tboro was scarcely any
brcezo stirring, aud •-Joe" folt as If ho
would nover succeed in settling himself
comfortably on tbat lounge. Thoro was ono
consolation, howover, in tho thought that no
ofllco-Boekor would bo likely to disturb his
rest ou such a day. Ho was just taking
nuollior stretch on tho lounge, and was
about to tako up again tho committeo report
which ho had temporarily laid asido to bury
tils iiobo tn a bunch of mint, when one of tho
pn pus unceremoniously entered and' gavo
him a card. Without rising "Joo" road tho
nolo on tho card peevishly, withi
"Oh, the deuce! Sho hero again? Ztold
her last wook I couldn't do any thing for
her."
The visitor was a woman who had been
twice dismissed from tho Department of
the Interior, and reinstated after tho flrst
dismissal on tho recommendation of Sonator Blackburn, Ho was unwilling, how*
fevor, to interfere again, as he ytdn con-
fldotit that sho did not deserve it.' "
"Icun not see hor," ho said,impatiently,
"Get rid of her any way. Toll hor I'm
asleep, or any thing you like,"
Quickly returning to tbo woman in tho
entry, tho pago said:
-'Senator Blackburn told mo to toll you
that bo was asleep,"
"Ah, he says ho's asloop, ohi" sho ex
claimed. "Woll, will you bo kind enough
to return and ask htm when ho intends to
wuko up!"
It Is tbe flrst timo, I think, that "Joe"
jvns ovor oqught napping.
A Perpetual Railroad Pan,
A perpetual railroad pass Is a pretty rare
w thing te have, but a man living in Attles-
, borough, on tho lino of tho Boston & Providence railroad, possesses ono of theso
passes. In 1880, when tho Boaton & Providence was being built, Mr Joha C. Dodge
convoyed to it a portion of his land in consideration that ho and hia family should
rido freo1 over the railroad ps loiig as tbo
land was used for railroad purposes, A
grandson of Mr. Dodge lately claimed that
ho was entitled to tho privileges named
under tbe deed, add that the word family
jueant "doacendttnts" of tho grantor. Tbo
' railroad company opposed tho demand, but
tbo Supreme Court of Massachusetts decided that the railroad must carry free the
descendants of Mr. Dodgo for all timo.
■ A young gentleman of Frattco one ovon.
log aftor a dance made a bot whilo supping
that ho could swallow a raw ogg without
breaking the sboll, and he did so. A few
days afterward he experienced violent
pains, Tbe dootor administered a strong
emetic, the ogg camo bock, but broken, and
out sprung a young chicken. Tho warmth
of tho young man's stomach bnd produced
tho unexpected result, and if any ono
doubts tho truth of tho story. Miy tftosp who .
vouch for it, ho cah'go to Chalons and sec
the ohlotien that me hMefy_^ •■ '■:,< ■

Mr. D. McLaron of tho McLaren-
Rosa Lumber Company returned yesterday from a two weeks' irip in coin*
puny with Mr. M. King,, to the lumber
districts of tho northern part of the
island. Mr. McLaren expresses himself ss highly pleased with the line

His oompany will' include two large
saw mills in the provinco- one at New
West minster, while the location of tho
second Iub not been decided upon, but
Nanaimo is considered ns a favorable
point of location. Mr. McLaren will
remain iu tlio province about a month

Early this morning Mr. H.
Harvey's Btoro/on "Front street was
broken into, nnd goods to the value of
$40 stolen therefroiu. The thief effected the robbery by breaking a largo
pane of glass in the front window, and
passing his hand inside took all the
articles within reach. ■ Traoea of blood
on tho glass proves .that' tko robber
cut his hand more or less aeriously in
breaking the window. Mr." Harvey
Bleeps in rear of the store, and hoard
nothing unusual during the night. The
watchman passed the building about 1
a. tn., nt which timo nil wns quiet and
secure. The police hare'the caso in
band and hope to run the thieves, who
nro undoubtedly Chinamen, to earth.
It is just six months Bthco-the'nttempt

Mysterious Disappearance.
Somo throo weeks ego a man named
Daniel Savoy, a master logger, left for
Port Moody, was Bom thero the next
day, but has not bceu heard nf since.
SaVoy was a mr.n of sortie means nnd
there is not the slightest reason for
thinking he has left tho country. Mo
had a largo contract to cut tugs for tho
McLaren-Boss Lumber Cu, which
contract would extend-over a number
of years. On tlie date of h>s departure frohl Westminster Savoy wub
known to have §(100 in his noseasion,
and this fact lends strength to the
suspicion lhat he has met with foul
play. Savoy comes from Kew Brunswick, is a practical lumberman nnd
bears an excellent reputation. Mr.
Moresby haa tho case in . hand, aud
will do his utmost to'lind somo truce
of thu unfortunate man.
Tlir Mnnlr of tbr BellSi
Hear the musio of the bells; hang
cow bells; cursed chant their music
knells; bra-ten bells. Hpw they pound
on our tympanum, sounding harshly
strong, gol'dnrnum; blast the bolls,
Such is the strain of a communication
read atthe counoil meeting last night
frmi one of our most prominent citizens, who last year was. lined for allowing his cow to wander forth with
a loud-mouthed bell attached. The
uppeat'Of this citizen was not made in
vaiu, for liow the .police havo boen instructed to make war on all animals
with musical appendages, and orders
wilt be striotly obeyed. It has often
been discussed which was .the greatest
and most aggravating evil, the stenm*
bunt whistle at 0 n.m. or the tinkling
of the cow-bell under the bedroom
window just after the' baby has been
hushed to sleep by an angry father at
the end of a 13 mile tramp to the strain
of "Angels bright are calling thee." As
a rple the cowbell has been given tho
palm.   .

Hired    Lighting.
The Gas Co. has lately been running the street lighting, department nt
a profit, presumably, to the shareholders of that company, ut the
city's expense. In future the
light committeo will see thnt the
terms of the contract are pro*
perly carried out, or inducements will
be offered to nn electrio light company
to bring in nnd operate a plant. For
many weeks the upper portion of tho
city has only been partially lighted
each night, and even on tbe principal
business streets some of the lump posts
are frequently an obstruction rather
than a guide after nightfall. Tho lamp
extinguisher has also been at work as
early as 1 a. m, putting out the lights,
although the city pays for un nil-night
service. Tho freo nnd easy manner iu
which this department has been manipulated has given general dissatisfaction, except probably to the company,
and the citizens in general will be glad
to know that the council has determined to set the matter right.

Aa Impertaat Mining ftechln.
An important mining ncli-jn was
tried befuro Mr. Justice Walkout on
Monday last. Tho question iu disputo
was the right tu a mineral claim at
Stump Lako, Nicola, and the facts
were briefly as follows: In the early
part of this month Peter Hope saw
.what he believed to be a mineral claim
that had- boen abandoned, and he staked, put up the required notices and
recorded it as the "Whale." As soon
as he began to work Sam Scott claimed
the ground and alao began work.
Hope then camo to Kamloops and enquired into Scott's title and found the
following particulars: On tho 6th of
October, 1827, Scott took out a miner's
license, and on the Otli of Mny, 1688,
ho recorded the ground, after duly
staking ami putting up the required
noticos. Scott did not renew his

The Chinese caso Wong Wing vs
Kwong 11 ing, for assault, which was
mentioned in yesterday's issue, turns
out to bo u much more serious case
than wns at first supposed, Thu cause
of the assault wns some troublu over a
Chineso woman named Ah Moy, This
woman, who by tho wny is only a half
breed, her father being nn Englishman,
was arrested iu Yictoriu just beforo the
Chinese New Year, on the information
of Ah Foo, charged with Healing a
quantity of jewelry from him in Westminster. Ah Moy wns brought to
Westminster for trial, but Ah Fuo
withdrew the cusoas there wai plenty
of proof ready to show that the woman
had nevor been iu Westminster till
brought hero by the polico. It is supposed that the true intention in getting
the protty Chinoso woman to Westminstor was that she might bo used for
thepurpo3C of prostitution. After her
relcnsu Ah Moy vent to live with Lee
Coy, tho Chiueao merchant, who gave
her a home. Here she resided for a
time and then left and went to livo
with someone else in Chinatown.
Birfon; she wus released from (he gaol,
Mr. Moresby told her lo go back if
anyone illtreuted hur, and she would
liud protection there. On Sundny
evening about 0 o'clock ehe arrived at
tho gaol, crying bitterly, and stated
that she had been beaten by Chinamen
because she had refused to becomo a
prostitute. Mr. Moresby took her in,
and yesterday morning drovo her over
to Vancouver and left hor with Mrs.
E. Rob-urn, who will send the girl to
the Chinese homo nt Victoria.
Whatever the girl passed through on
Sunday evening wns tho cause of the
row botween the principals in this case,
and it is evidently considered serious
by them as tha affair is to be heard
before tho police magistrate on Monday..
Murder Will Out.
About8yeats ago n mnn named
Nicholls went iuto tho forest in rear of
Moodyvllle and never was seen or
heard of afterwards. There wero suspicions at tho time that he hnd met
with foul play, but ns no trace of the
body could bo found this theory, was
not verified, Nicholls worked for the
Moodyvllle saw mill company and was
well known both in this city and on
tho Inlet. It now turns out that
Nicholls was murdered by an Indian
familiarly known as whiskey Joe.
This information was given by aome
Indians a few days ago to constable
Calbick at Moodyvllle, nud they further offered to show the *■ pot where
tho body had been hidden. A man
who knew Nicholls vory intimately
went with the Indians and the constable, and when the skull was dug up
ho immediately identified it by the
gold filling in tho teeth. Whiskey Joo
was assisted in the foul work of murder by one or more Indians, who aro
atill alive and will bo sought after by
the police if their names can be learned. Whiskey Joe is dead and beyond
the reach of the law. He was on trial
a few years ago for the murder of his
kloutchman, who was found in the
woods one morning, near Hastings, almost cut up into mincemeat, 'file
jury acquitted Joe of murder
und he was relented, but before leaving tho gaol he informed an official
that he was sorry ho hnd murdered his
kloochman, aud would nover do it
again.
An inquest was held at Mondyvillo,
to-dny, ou tho remains of Nicholls,
but the verdict has not yet been learned. Mr. Moresby will follow up this
Cii-e as long ns there is uny chance of
Whiskey Joe's confederates boing discovered, and it may bo that after nil
theno years tho cruel death of Nicholls
will bu revenged.
