"What is talent to-day," says
Grant Allen, ''would have been
'genius yesterday ; what is genius
to-day will bo but talent as men
reckon to-morrow."
A Norwegian engineer locates
leaks in a ship, while in dry dock,
by filling the vessel with smoke.
The leaks are soon shown by an
escape oi smoke, the process usually
requiring only thirty or forty
'minutes.
' Prof. Pickering, of the Harvard
College Observatory, estimate, that
4000 or 5000 nebulae not yet found
by direot obwrvafpn would be
shown in photographs of the entire
sky. By photographio aid ho has
discovered a number of these
objects surrounding tho great
nebula of Orion.
Musical tones may be produced
from sand, concludes Mr, 0. Ourus-
Wilson, F. G. 8., if the grains are
rounded, polished, and free from
fino fragments; if they havo sufficient play to enable them to slide
one against the other; if they are
perfectly clean; and if they possess
a certain uniformity and range
of size.
The skin and digestion of minors
aro made delicato by lack of sunlight, but Mr. S. G. Nasmyth finds
that the air of coal-mines compares
favorably in chemical composition
with that of schools and workshops.
The temperature is much better-
even luxurious—the highest in an
English mine during three months
being 55 s Fahr., and the lowest
53o.
An official report gives the number of British boiler explosions for
the year ending with last June as
61, with a loss of 31 lives. Moro
than half of the explosions were due
to the use of worn-out or,damaged
boilers, seventeen to defective
designs end fittings or undue working pressure, seven to ignorance or
notdect of attendants, and six to
miscellaneous causes.
A Savaqe's Bevehaoe. — Tho
intoxicant of the Society and South
Son Islands has for its basis tbe
kava-root (Piper melhyslicum). The
root is chewed by women and girls
employed for that purpose, and,
when well masticated and mixed
with saliva, Ib ejected into bowls,
mixod with cocoa-juice, und left to
ferment. The drink is used as
wine is in many places, and is in
great demand among the natives
and some whites.
A German Exposition. — Tho
sum of 5,000,000 marks haa been
raised by the Export Society pf
Germany for a floating exhibition
palace in the form of a steel ship
564 feet long, with four engines and
foursorewa. It is expected that
this vessel will start from Hamburg
on its first voyage in 1890. If the
anticipated profit of. 2,000,000
marks annually is realized, floating
exhibitions will bo likely to become
common during the next few years.
WobkofthbHebmit People.—
An interesting collection of tho
productions of tho Ooreans hss been
brought to England, and is now in
Kew Museum. like the Japanese,
these little-known people make an
extensive use, in their few industries, of paper, whioh is made from
the bark of the paper mulberry.
This collection includes various
white or cream-colored papers for
drawing, writing, wrapping, etc.,
with fans and hand-screens of paper
and bamboo, oiled-paper tobacco-
pouches and hat-coverings, paper
kites with bamboo frames, sun-
blinds of bamboo split into threadlike strips, and fine olothing—such
as undershirts and cull's—of split
rattans. Very fine work is displayed in somo of the articles.
Disease Germs Must Go.—
Recent developments in bacteriology,
according to Dr. Austin Flint, give
increasing promise of results of the
greatest importance to tho whole
huuion race. A revolution in the
Science and practice of medicine is
being slowly, but surely, wrought;
and a bettor acquaintance with
bacteria must in time make preventable or easily curable a large
class of now formidable ailments.
Among the diseases in which the
presence of bacteria has already
been surely traced, and their influence lessoned or destroyed, to tbe
relief or euro of the patient, are:
Consumption, diphtheria, typhoid
fever, yellow fever, relapsing fever,
the malarial fevers, certain catarrhs,
tetanus, and nearly all contagious
and skin diseases.

Zakzibak, Jan. 12. — Insurgent
tribes of the coast attacked the German
mission at Barer-salaam, yesterday. A
stout defence was mado and the blacks
were repulsed, with losses in killed and
wounded heavy on both sides. There
has been continuous fighting for several
days at Lindikiellva between the boats
from tho German fleet and the enemy
on shore. The latter are in s*uh force
that the boats cannot effect -Handing.
The native village has been shelled.
BOULANOEH INTERVIEWED.
New Yohk, Jan. 12.—The Herald's
Paris cable this morning has an interview with Boulanger in which, when
asked his opinion of Panama canal affairs, he Baid: " I have no opinion to
express as to the ultimate outcome of
the enterprise when the canal will be
finished, and what the expense will be
are questions which I am incompetent
to answer. One thing I know, a few
months ago the chamber of deputies
authorized the issue of lottery bonds
for the benefit of DeLeasops great undertaking, and if the authorization
meant anything it meant that the
French government identified itself
with the interests of tlie canal and became sponsor for it. This same government would now shirk the responsibility it incurred recently, and it was
against such hasty and illogical action
I protested and still protest I believe
in keeping a promise and I believe in
being consistent, two points which
Floquet's government would seem to
to regard as insignificant detail in their
line of policy."
"Do you think the present government has compromised its chances at
the general elections by opposing the
wishes of so large a body of the electors?"
" Mais mon dieu, Us ne font que
ca, From the opening of the campaign against me Floquet and his advisers have done nothing but play into
my hands by their rofusal to sustain
the allegiance of the army of 800,000
shareholders. That is only one illustration of their stupidity. By their
ridiculous energy in the Baudin affair
in December in attempting to call out
the mob they lost the support of thousands1 Wftinis shopkeepers, whose interests are centered in the maintenance
of order in tho streets. Fortunately
for Paris Floquet's plan failed."
"Then you feel sure of defeating
the government in the approaching
contest!"   .
•* Sure of defeating thorn, why, my
dear sir, they will defoat themselves.
To obtain tho victory I have simply to
rest on my oars and watch them cut
thoir own throats. The other day
they increased their discomfiture by
refusing to vote a timo honored holiday in remembrance for the government employees. That alone will cost
them thousands of votes. Then thero
is the amnesty at Belieze by which
they have made enemies of numberless
laborers; and so I might go on indefinitely. I shall be elected by 100,000
majority, though machinations of the
Floquet government may reduce it to
80,000."
"Are you not afraid of thsir adopting violent measures against you?"
Tbe general drew himself up proudly
and replied with flaming eyes in ringing tones: "Let them dare to touch a
hair of my head and they will see the
result of such temerity in the sufferage
of 300,000 Frenchmen who would rise
up and demand me ss their representative. I defy the whole pack to do
their worst Msii noti, par exemple
Us noseraientpas."
'* Whot will you do for your election
in Paris?"
" That is too far ahead to speak pre-
cise1yt sufficient for the day is evil
thereof, but one thing Is certain my
election in Paris will sweep sll France
like an electric shock.    Nous verons."
FETAltD THUOWBRS.

The trouble at tho Wellington
colleries, culminating in tho lockout, by Mr. Dunsmuir's ordors, on
the 3rd inst, has been browing for
some time before it actually camo to
a head, It iB difficult to explain
the case intelligibly to the general
publio owing to the necessity of
making use of technical miners' expressions. The real grievances of
the miners can be best conveyed by
quoting hriefly from tho words ot "a
Wellington miner" on the subject in
a late number of the Nanaimo
Courier: "To give your readers an
intelligent idea of the trouble," says
the Courier's correspondent, "it is
necessary to say that for somo timo
past it has been a custom to pay 75
cents a ton for mining in tho "stalls"
and 65 cents a ton in the "pillars,"
but to induce the miners to work
for the less price certain privileges
were granted them, one of which is
known amongst miners as "free
turn," or, in other words, the
miners working in pillars get oil
the work they can do whether those
working in stalls were fully employed or not This system being
manifestly unjust to all concerned, a
resolution was passed at a meeting
of miners, on Dec. 9th, 1888, to request Mr. Bra/den, the mino manager, to pay tho same price to pillar
men, and no favors." Mr. Bryden
immediately forwarded tho resolution of the miners to Mr. Dunsmuir at Victoria, where, as is well
known, Mr. Dunsmuir resides, leaving the local management of the
mine to Mr. Bryden. On the Hth
of December the mine manager conveyed tho information to the minors
that Mr. Dunsmuir had declined to
give the "10 cents per ton moro
upon 'pillar' work." On tho 18th
of December the minors held another
meeting to tuke action ou Mr. Dunsmuir's reply, and passed a resolution
requesting Mr. Dunsmuir to "como
to Wellington to meet the men and
discuss our grievances." Mr. Dunsmuir taking no notice of this resolution, tho miners, on January 2nd,
1889, took an idle day, held a meeting, and sent a committee to tho
mine manager, Mr. Bryden, "to see
if he would not pay tho 10 cents per
ton to 'pillar' menus asked beforo."
Tho manager said ho could do nothing without consulting Mr. Dunsmuir, which ho did, and received
tho following reply, on January
3rd: "Tf miners aro not satisfied
shut down the mines." The minors
received this with some indignation
and passed a resolution notifying
Mr. Dunsmuir to "meet. us before
January 7th, 1889, or wo cease
work." Mr. Dunsmuir ordered the
following telegram to be handed to
a committee of the miners: "I
havo ordered my mines shut down.
Oan be seen at my office in Victoria
at any time." Other grievances
aro stated by the Courier's
correspondent to the effect that,
about three months ago, Mr. Dunsmuir had made an agreement with
the men for them to hare a committee of thoir own choice in each
mine, to arbitrate, and, if possible,
to settle any dispute which might
arise between the individual miner
end foreman, and failing to settle
with tho foreman or manager, to
write or telegraph him and he would
come immediately. The miners
assert that this agreement has been
violated by tho mine manager, who
refused to treat with a committee
about some trilling grievance, telling
them to "mind their own business,"
and also refused to re-employ a discharged miner, giving as a reason
that he referred his case to a committee. The conference at Victoria, on the 9th inst, between Mr.
Dunsmuir and a deputation of the
miners, a verbatim roport of whioh
has been published by the Colonist,
threw very littlo additional light on
the minors' grievances, which remain substantially as stated above,
but Mr. Dunsmuir's action throughout has been somewhat explained.
It would appear that at the time of
tbe last strike Mr. Dunsmuir gave
the men emphatically to understand
that no one participating in any
future strike should ever thereafter
work in his mines again. Hence
the look-out, ordered by Mr. Dunsmuir, who, foreseeing a strike,
wished to savo his own word and
himself the necessity of discharging
all his miners nt the same time. At
the conference, after the deputation
had been assured *>y Mr. Dunsmuir
that he would not grant the 10
cents per ton asked on "pillars,"
but vould see that every practical
miner made a full day's wages, the
deputation urged that the principle
of recognizing miners' committes
ahould be established, and also that
all of the. miners should be allowed
to go back to,work, which the depot*^ Jpiev*)d, tbey would be willing, to do, ond no more trouble would
be made. Mr, Dunsmuir's reply to
thi. requart-wa*, in effeot, that he
would ttoomite up "tending griev-
tm,mrWmM^ w"re ****
imMmWi/tUft'i^at,be ""*
ptirfq*-, f4imjm».,v4 breeding
trouble in the min** and that he
would not allow all tha miners to
to work, as there were some troublo-
somo oharactors among them whom
he knew to bo agitators and ringleaders, and it would be bettor both
for him and the rest of the miners
that they should bo discharged. The
sending up of special constables was
explained as a precautionary measure against possible lawless outbreaks. It was, then, on Mr, Dunsmuir's refusal on the two points
abovo that the miners, according to
our special despatches yesterday,
have concluded to strike. We are
inclined to the conclusion that, in
view of all the circumstances, the
strike is an unfortunate and ill-
advised one on tho part of the
miners, and that Mr. Dunsmuir
cannot fairly be blamed for the
stand he has taken, according to
tho ovidenco, and the matter has
been pretty thoroughly ventilated.

THE BET. G. G. PATTERSON
Afft-jat-i Cryftr Rttlwr'iCiritorla
Of tbilllwbnck, «n  Temperance and
Froblblllnn.
Wo publish tho following lecture by
I'ogiioat:
Henderson Hall, nt Chilliwhack, was
well tilled on Christmas night to hear
the Rev. G. C, Patterson's address on
temperance. After replying to several
questions that had beeu sent to him
on the day before tu answer at this
meeting, he referred to Col. Wood
ford's recent statement in tlio hall, and
said if the colonel meant to teach that
the separation of the Methodist body
from the temperance cause, would
take the "stuffing" out of it, it was
atill a matter for thankfulness that the
brains nnd heart and backbone would
remain; but Col. Woodford said thai,
tho "stuffing" would be knocked out
of the temperance sentiment, by the
withdrawal of tho Methodist body.
Now if this means anything it is that
the "stuffing" is that which gives
solidity, weight, value to the sentiment, and if this is removed then the
sentiment collapses. The rev. gentleman went on to say that he believes
that there are tens of thousands of
people not only in the United States
but elsewhere, outside of tho Methodist body, who are just sb loyal to the
temperance cause, and to every other
good cause as any who are within that
fold. If tbo Methodist or Presbyterian church perished the temperance
cause would still live, for the cause is
broader than any churoh, and it is extremely unfortunate that iu the discussion of this question sectarianism
should havo been introduced. One of
the questions that I have been asked
is: "If you are a temporauco worker
and in favor of such organizations as
the I. O. G. T. and W. 0 T. U., how
is it that all the Presbyterians lmve
withdrawn from these organizations?"
Have they withdrawn? If bo I am nut
responsible for their actions in this
matter, nor can I detenu ino their conduct. Tbe Presbyterian church is not
a mechanism, but an organism. These
are voluntary institutions. Neither
directly or indirectly have I sought to
influence them in the matter; they are
free; the cause of their withdrawal
mny be found in the organizations
themselves. It is not necessary to be
identified with either of them iu order to become true workers in the temperance cause. The statements made
were uncharitable; Buch statements are
not calculated to increase people's respect for these organizations. They
reveal a spirit of narrow-mindedness
and sectarianism that ought to be
crushed out, or it will crush out the
lifo nnd usefulness of these societies.
For, depend upon it, the narrow-minded, fussy, meddlesomo people are not
the greatest powers for good in any
community or in any cause. They are
fussy and troublesome just because
of their own littleness; noiip does not
mean strength, agitation does not
mean progress. The silent forces in
nature are tho most potent; tho shallow stream makes a considerable noise,
the mighty river moves on with irresistible powers, yet without noise. A
little army of these fussy individuals
swarm about the temperance cause
particularly when it becomes popular,
or when they have au axe to grind.
Dare to criticise their methods of work
and at onco a great shout goes up "he
is opposed to temperance;" dare to
suggest some improvement in their
methods, and with all their might they
cry out "heis acrnnk," "puthim out,
"he is opposed to prohibition;" dare
to say anything that is hot quite in
lino with their particular or peculiar
modes of thought, and they conclude
that you are a trator to tho cause of
temperance, and that you are in league
with the liquor party. What is the
explanation? It is not fnr to seek;
they think they are the temperance
cause; the only true temperance party;
in reality they aro so poisoned with
self-conceit that, as with a wasp, "you
are much better without either their
honey or their sting," They consider
anything said about them as aaid about
tho temperance cause; in fact they remind me of a very conceited student
I once knew, wbo spoke and acted as
if he were uncertain whether lie was
a part of creation or creation a part of
him. One of the most educated! men
in this country buttonholed him one
day and said, "John, there are three
things that you ought to know. First,
there ore a few things in the world
that you do not know; secondly, there
•re a few other things that you never
will know; thirdly, the sooner you know
this the better." So there area few
things about this temperance cause
that these people do not know, there
are a few other things they will never
know, and it is a great pity for the
sake of the good cf their cause that
they do not know this now, for it is a
painful faot, a humiliating foot, but
nevertheless ofact, that many of the
"out and outers" especially of this
olass, become so fanatical, so narrow-
minded, that they dig their own graves
and unconsciously do their level best
to dig the grave of the cause they have
at heart So far as intoxicating liquors
are concerned I believe in total abstinence, but I have no right to force
my opinions upon others, or to consign to perdition all who are not total
abstainers. The Law of God does not
demand It, If all who have used
liquors in moderation will beoxcluded
from Heaven, our hope of entrance
must be very small indeed; total abstainers though we may be, does not
the Bible teach us, that the evil is not
in the liquor, but in the man; somo
will say "That ii all the liquor party
requires, leave them some way of
escape, and they will stick to the traffic." I answer, must we suprcss Bible
truth in order to help on the temper*
nnco cause; if so, it is a weak and unholy cause. It Is not necessary, for
the temperance cause is divine iu its
origin, and has the well-being of man
in view; no truth need be sacrificed,

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors of New West>
minster City :
Ladies and Gentlemen,—
At the request of a number of friends I
bave consented to plaoe my name In
nomination for the position of alderman
nt tho coming election, fully realising tho
importance und duties of the office. If
elected I will endeavor to the best of my
ability, to place onr city in the front rank
of the cities of B.C. The following important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. 1Uim**ay.-1 will use overy legitimate
means In my power to bring to a successful termination the building and completion of theSouthern Railroad, and will
treat liberally any projected railway
which may wish to run into oar city,
always carefully guarding the best Interests of the city, And it is my opinion
If we are true to ourselves and bnry any
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, wo can make New
Westminster the greatest railway center
and most Important oity between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Wateb Supply.—I am in favor of the
city owning its own watef works, for there
Is a very large revenue to be derived from
this source, If properly conducted, and Jf
elected, I will at once take up this question
and deal with It on business principles,
Water rate debentures whon Issued,bear
their own value and will not bo ono dollar's tax ou the ratepayers.
3. Sewerage.—This Ib one of tbe most
important questions that tbe new council
will have to grapple with, and, as there Is
bound to bo a large emigration here this
year, It behooves us to bo alive and get
our city well advanced bo as to keep away
those dread diseases which wo so mercifully escaped last year. And I have no
doubt If you elect the right men a scheme
can be got up whereby tbo city can be
 ,-—"—-cd.andtherevenuoderived
f water bo made to nay tbe
 diking •*—-'*-- '■-*•-	
works and sewerage.
I. Streets—Something must bo done
nt once to open up all streets ln the city
sons to give workingmen ond mechanics
a chance to get to their lots nnd buildings,
and, If elected, I will give tbls subject my
careful attention and hearty support.
5. City Kali..—If any proposition Ib
brought forwnrd for the erection of a suitable city hall, nnd If tho finances of the
city will allow It, I will give It my warmest support,
0. SniKET LiGiniNfi.—I will favor tbe
extending nnd Improving of our system of
street lighting, for there is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. Park.—In order to make the coming
agricultural show a success we mast put a
portion of the city park ln a fit condition
with suitable buildings, etc If elected I
will do my bent to make the grounds a
credit to the royal oity. I am also In favor
of removing the unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent and planting a few shade
trees to replace the stumps. Nnturohns
dono much for our city and It only wants
touching up a littlo to make it perfect,
8. Punr-jo Library.-There Is no doubt
a new building ts wanted to replnco tbo
dclnpldntod one now occupying a valuable tot, and 1 ticro is no doubt ln my mind,
but that a suitable one could boo-octcd
with stores underneath and library above;
nnd tbo rents from said stores would more
than pny for Interest nnd sinking fund,
nnd leave n balance for keeping tbe library ln proper condition.
9. Man!*factci*-er8.-I will oncourogo
any manufacturers thatcontemplate starting business ln this oity, treating them
Ina liberal manner, and will useevery
efforttoshow them the advantage of doing
buslneis here. It is well known that manufactures are tbe backbone of any city.
10. Communications.—I will urge upon
our representative the necessity of the
Dominion governmcntsubsldislngafdaily
boat between here and Richmond and
also between here and Ladners Landing.
We must also get better connections with
tho surrounding district,
II, Letter B0XK8.-I will alsoondeavor
to havo tho postal authorities supply and
put ln place letter boxes in the suburbs
of the city.
12.1 will also urge on our city member
the necessity of having tbe local government place a sum of money ln thia year's
estimates to put the North Arm road ln a
fit condition ror travel.

How the Esqa^-fiai**- naa Australian Uush-
raou   Cuptu**o   *fheir   Brides - Tho
Asiatic Way—A Curlonr- Custom Observed In Holland.
Among tbo ancient Assyrians all marriageable young girls woro assembled at
ono place, and tbe public crier put them up
for salo ouo after the otber, says a writer
ln tho Epoch, Tbe money wlileh was received for thojfe who, were handsome, and
consi-qucntl^old-welli waa bestowed as a
wedding poi;'tjton,Q-J tlfpse who wero plain.
When lUo moat beautiful had been disposed
of tho moro ordinary looking ones were
offered for a certain sum, and allotted to
th03o willing to tako them.
Iu miciont Greece tbe lover was seldom
favored with an opportunity of tolling bis
passion ti) his mistress, and ho used to publish it by inscribing hor natno on tbo woHs,
on i\v_ bark of tbo trees in the public walkB
mill upon thb loaves of books. Ho would
decorate the door of her houso with garlands, and mako libations of wino before it,
in tho manner that was practised in the
tomplo of Cupid.       '      -    ■
According to Or. Hayds, courtship among
tho Esquimaux has not much tenderness
about it. The match Is made by the parents
of tbe couplo. Tha lover must go out and
capture a polar bear as an evidence of his
courage and strength. That accomplished,
ho snoulca behind the door of his sweetheart's house, and when aho comas out he
pounces upon hor and trios to carry her to
Iiib dog-slcdgo. Sho screams, bites, locks
und breaks away from bim. Ho gives chase,
whereupon all the old women of ttie settlement rush out aud boat her with frozen
strips of sealskin. Bho falls down exhausted,
. the lover lashes her to his sledgo, whips up
his dogs, dashes swiftly over tho frozen
snow and tho wedding Is consummated.
Tho Australian lover Is still more lacking
ln tenderness, If the statement made by
Mrui'i Deley is truo. The lover makes up
tlio mind as to which woman shall bo his
brides and thou hides in the bushes in tbe
vioiniiy of her dwelling. As soon as Bhe
cotpoji liour tho spot where ho is concealed
ho knocks her down with a dub, and carries
her oil beforo she comes to. If he does not
get her to his hut before she recovers,
there is likely to bo a lively fight in tho
bush, for tho Australian damsel is generally u vigorous one, and may have reasons
of her own for objecting to his attentions.
Tlio lover may then bo obliged to club her
op-urn, and as that is considered to be somewhat of a reflection on the ardor with which
his earlier effort was mode, he is apt to put
as much soul and muscle into Ids first love
pat as ho can summon.
In some parts of Asia the question of a
man's title to a bride must be settled by a
fierce fight between the friends of the contracting-parties. If his forces are victorious his sweetheart becomes his trophy.
If hor friends are victorious ho must pay
bucIi price as. tho victors demand. All over
that country somo ceremony of violence or
exhibition of physical power must precede
a wedding. Bomo native tribes insist upon
afoot race between tbo brido and bridegroom, to decide the question of marriage,
and othors require a long chaso on horseback. In some sections of Asia tho lover
must carry off his bride on his back. If he
reaches his hut with her thoro can bo no
protest against the marriage; failing in
that, he must pay hor parents for her in
cattle, ■ The willing brido makes no outcry;
the unwilling brido arouses tho whole village, the residents of which try to rescue
her. j,
In the Isthmus of Darlen either sex can
do the courting, while in tho Ukraine tho
girl generally intends to it. When she
falls in lovo with u man sho noes to bis
house and declares her passion. ' If nb declines to accept hor sho remains there, and
bu case becomes rather distressing. To
turn her out would provoke her kindred to
avenge the insult. Tho young fellow has
no rosort left him but to run away from
home until tho damsel is otherwise disposed of.
A curious custom prevails in OudBeior*
land, Holland.  October is the auspicious
month, and on tho first Sunday (known as
roviow day) tho lads and lasses, attired in
thoir best, promonade the village separately, stare each othor out of countouonoe, and
thon retire to make up tholr minds on the
second Sunday, which is called dooiBion
day.  Tho young mon go up and pay their
• .compliments to tho fair   onos of   their
j choice, to learn If thoy aro rogarded with
favor.   Oa tho third Sunday, or day of purchase, the swain is expected to snatch the
pocket Handkerchief of hi* adored one, and
if sho submits to it with good grace he
understands that his chances of winning
her are flattering.  Tho captured pledge.is
restored to tho fair owner on tho fourth
Sunday, tho "Sunday of taking possession,"
, and it rarely happens that tho damsel refuses the lover for whom she has indicated
a preference.- Ou tho Sunday following tho
', suitor, according to custom, calls at tho
houso of his Inamorata, whero he is asked
' to tea.  If a piece of the crust of a ginger*
i bread loaf Is handed to him, there is noth-
, ing loft for him but to retire.   If, on the
' other baud, the parents offer the young
, man a piece pf the crumb, ho Ib allowed to
come again Land he is admitted into the
family.      |      '.'•
PINNED  HER BARGAIN.
A Woman. Swallows » Merchant'! Bait* bnt
Ulev-rTly Avoids the Book*
Thero is a good moving story which has
just gained publicity regarding some rather
prominent  furniture-dealers  in Chicago,
' Bays tbe Herald of that oity. The firm alluded to had a very elegant parlor set of
solid mahogany and tho finest upholstering.
' It also had duplicates in veneered wood and
cheap plush in the store-room. Tho costly
outfit, which was worth about (200, was
j displayed ln the window and marked: 'This
elegant parlor suit only (27.-' One day a
mild, meek-looking woman came tn, examined the furniture and- invested. Sho took
a receipt for her mouoy, left hor address,
and was bowed out by tbe smiling salesman,
wbo assured hor that "the things would be
, sent right over." In due time tho wagon
arrived at the young .woman's house and
bucked up ln front of the door.
"Hold on," said tho purchaser, "don't unload yot,"
Thon she climbed on tbo van and made a
! very peculiar examination of tho load. At
last sho said to the driver and his assistant:
"I'll go back with you to the store. Theso
are not tbe goods I purchased." And baok
she did go, despite entreaties, protests and
assurances "tbat every thing was all right."
Whon she walked in sho was not tho mild-
mannered creature of two hours before.
"You'w trltfj toAwindle me," she cried,
"I bought one set of furniture and you have
I sent me another. Now, I want what I bave
paid you for. How do I know? Because in
every article of that set you sold mo I stuck
, a pin In while you were not looking. Now,
I'm going to pick out m** property and see

ALL ABOUT  RATS.
Tho Wholo Fatally Came from Asia, liul
Only the Gray Ones Survive**,.'-'.;
Tbo black and brown rats are particularly deserving of notice, and are, the most
widely distributed over §_o world, 'according to a writer in the Ban Franc|sco <&on-
iei>. .-It iauot known whore or how. they
were introduced into Europe first, but it
must havo boen in recent times, as tbo
ancients did not know tbem. They both appear to bo natives of tbe central part pf
Asia. The brown rat found its way to Europe In tho beginning of the eighteenth
century, and reached Britain and tbo western countries of Europe about the middle of
that epoch- Tbe Jacobites of Britain had
tbe notion that.they came with the houso of.
Hanover, qs they appeared about that time,
aud therefore chose to call them tho Hanoverian rat. They are sometimes erroneously called tho Norway rat.
The brown rat is larger and more powerful tbat tho block rat, and they are deadly
foes. Tho brown rat has succeeded in causing un utmost total disappearance of the
black rat in places where it i**a*> very numerous. According to Mr.; RodeivcU'e theory,
tbe manner in wbloh tbe brown tat has supplanted its black foe Is by lovo instead of
war. Tho browns being tbo stronger, carry
off the females of tbo blacks by force, and
thus he accounts for the curious kind of particolored offspring which may be found in
France. These rats infest ships, aud bo are
carried to tbo most distant parts of tbo
world, somo of them gettingashoreat ovory
port and establishing new colonies, Tbo
black rat Ib nearly sovon inches long, aod
tho brown grows to bo ten inches, with a
tall eight inches long. Both spaci^s are extremely prolific, producing f**om (t«-W to
fourteen at a birth. Whon thoy «e prefsed
by hunger they do not hesitate to ,dfjfour
the'weuker of their kind. v '
Tho rat's never-failing appetite is especially useful in devouring animal and
vegetable*substances, tho putrefaction of
which would otherwise .ho productive of
pestilence. It is said that tho visits of the
plague to Western Eurcpo and Britain havo
ceased from the timo when rats became
plentiful. *. '        I:*
Their sense of smoll is vory acute, so
much so that rat-catchers aro careful to
glove tbelr hands whon Betting their traps.
Tho professional rat-catcher in England
wears a-brass imago of a rat as a sign of
his business. Tbe ways and means pf
catching them are a professional secret
They procure them alive and sell them to
ratpit keepers. Theso pit-keepers have a
sort of hole where thoy let the rats loose
and dogs ore set on them, Crowds of boys
and men pay to seo this cruel sport, The
skin of rats is made into gloves In Paris,
and in Siberia there is a field mouse tbat
stores up such quantities of dried roots and
other food to last through the long winter
of that country tbat half-starved people
thero hunt their nests and carry off most of
the food for their own use.
A troop of trained rats, were exhibited
some time ago, dressed like . mon and
women. Thoy walked on tholr hind legs
and went through a sort of play, ono act of
which was to hang a cat and dance around
tho body.       ^
UNSKILLED  LABOR.
What Men Without a Trade Earn In the
City of Chicago.
"There Is hardly such a thiug imaginable
ob unskilled labor among men,'*' said an Lu-
tolligont mechanic to a Chicago iYcic* reporter. "We hear the term used very
often," he continued, "because It distinguishes tho common laborer from iho
skilled workman. It is a fact, howevur,
that no matter bow humble a man's occupation may bo he still must -have 'some skill.
Toe ono who shovols on tho street must
know how to use his shovel or bo cau not
perform tbo work to h« own odvantago or
that of his employer. A man can not chop.
wood with any profit unless ho can swing
tbe axo skillfully; noither cau ho carry tho
hod unless he kuoWs how to load tho brick
In It and how to climb the udder. Thoro
seems to bo no such thing among civilised
men as unskilled labor, but there ts such a
thing as a trade. It is not the Indepeudont
mechanic who needs the protection that is
afforded by a union half so much as the
helpless laborer who has no trade. Hois
at tho mercy of every body, and no ono falls
to tako advantage ot his weakness. I myself have seen strong, able-bodied Swedes
go into tho lumber-yards of Chicago and
got but nlnty cents a day, while men who
could not do half as much work as they got
$1,50, simply because tho Swede could not
speak English. Tho Swede bad learned to
do tbe work by serving a abort apprenticeship, but advantage wiw taken of his Ignorance."
The common laborer, who has only his
muscle to sell, has much to contend with
in Chicago. His moro skillful brothers have
sought to protect themselves from Ute avarice of capital by forming unions, and have
succeeded in dictating to what extent they
may bo imposed upon. Under these circumstances the burden of the common laborer has boon mado harder to bear s*jd tbo
avarice of capital falls upon his devoted
hood alone. Rarely Is tho common laborer
paid a sum sufficient to maintain bis family
and educate bis children. If he works upon
the railroad in any capacity his lncomo Is
never more than H.4Q a day; and when bis
board at tho rate of U a weok t» Mid uot
muoh remains for bis jfamjjy. In , the jail-
road freight bouses he K-oelyes from 11.25
to 9LS0 a day, and in. the barns of the street
railroad companies he gets 11.60 a day on
the North side and HMX on the West and
South Bides. In tho lumber-yards the pay
ranges from 60 coats to Sl.GQ-a day, old men
receiving even less than 00 cents. In tho
labor of unloading bouts the pay is never
moro than 90 cents an hour, and the work-
is exceedingly irregular. Men who work
about buildings in tbe courso of orection,
helping brick-layers aud stone-masons, got
an average of f 1.35 a day. lu the matter of
hours tho common laborer Ib again subjected to hardships, having to remain loug after
ho sees skilled workmen lay down thoir
tools aud go borne. With theso indisputable facts before him, every boy should tako
a warning and becomo muster of some mechanical art before hts maturity.

Then was considerable excitement
on the streets to-day concerning the
attempt to land passengers at Vancouver from the str. Premier. The public feeling was strongly with Vancouver.
In another column will bo found tho
requisition to Mr. ti. V. Edmonds to
stand for alderman, and his acceptance
of the same. Mr, Edmonds pledges
himself to support the Southern Railway.
It ia reported that small-pox has
broke out among tho Indians on Bute
Inlet and that many of the people are
already down with tho disease. > Mr.
P. McTieman and Di. McGliigan
leave for the Inlet to-morrow to investigate.
Some tnischevious persons, with the
bump of destruction remarkably well
developed, have broken aeveral of the

clue leading to the discovery of
the perpetrators of this Billy act can be
obtained they should be prosecuted to
the full extent of the law.
-'Dutch Bill" is tho hero of the
hour. He escaped irom the Islander
this aftornoon by a clever ruse--getting into a small1 fishing'boat nuob-
served, and proceeding with the fishing operations as naturally as if he
owned the entire outfit. He thus
disarmed suspicion, subsequently got
tn shore, and is now in this city,
tho only man who got off the steamer,
The attention of voters is called to
the following clauses in Now Westminster Incorporation Act;—Clause
6: Every person whose name appears
on the voters list used at the municipal elections for said city in Jan.,
1888, shall be entitled to vote at the
first municipal election under this aot.
Clause 8: No person in arrears for
taxes, and no Chinaman or Indian
shall be entitled to vote at any municipal election for the election of a
mayor or alderman.
On Monday lost a delegation of
farmers interested in the Surrey-
Delta dyking scheme waited on Mr.
Chiiholm M. P., at this city, and laid
the points of the scheme before him
and asked his assistance in bringing
the matter before the Dominion house,
which Mr. Chisholm promised to do.
We have described the advantages of
this undertaking before, and, as our
readen are aware, it is worthy of
every reasonable governmental assistance and encouragement.
We have it on good authority that
the Vancouver council have made
overtures to tho Surrey and other
municipalities on the south side of the
river, asking them to co-operate with
Vancouver in inducing the C.P.R. to
make their proposed connection with
Seattle through those municipalities to
Vancouver, instead of by way of the
Million, as announced recently, Was
the Mission scheme a blind, or is Vancouver awaking to a senso of injury,
without compensation, that connection
with Seattle at the Minion would do
to hor interests?
Vruni ihe aqaaailsa.
Mr. P. McTiornan, Indian agent,
returned from the Squamish last evening. He reports that the small-pox
haa been completely wiped out and
that there ia no further cause for alarm
as far as the Home Sound Indiana are
concerned. Tho Squamish Indiana, 35
in number, will be removed next week
lo Capilano creek and furnished with a
complete new outfit of bedding and
olothing. All tho old itkahs will be
burned as well as the cabins lately
occupied by the Indians nt the Squamish rancherie.

The Miners Htrlke llBChangfd.--The Victoria Footballers Try ta Explain.
Special to Columbian.]
Victoria, Jan. 12.—Alight snow
fell thia morning, but disappeared as
rapidly as it came. The weather cleared about oleven and Italian skies are
again to the fore. A heavy fall of
enow Ib reported along the island railway, a foot to eighteen inches deep at
some places.
W.Ward, secretary of tho Victoria
Football Club, referring to tho matoh
with tho Westminster team, said, "A
number of our men have boen injured
at lato games and are not sufficiently
recovered to play to-day. Othora were
unable to get away owing to press of
business. Notice, to tliis effect, was
Bent last Thursday, "We will play
Westminstor later on."
The situation at Wellington is unchanged. 	
Meal Bitale Aellve.
With tho beginning of tho now year
the real estate market, bo long depressed, lias hardened, und sales of
important parcels aro of daily occurrence. On Wednesday some $50,000
worth of town and Burburban land was
sold, and several other sales are in
treaty. This revival of confidence ii
most gratifying and iB probably indicative of a brisk and profitable market during the whole year. The application for a Bute Inlet railway and
the proposed construction of the electric Btreet railway, hai undoubtedly
proved an important factor in bringing
about this desirable change.—Colonist.
Hats Off, For the Verdict.
Mr. Hawthornwaite, captain of the
Nanaimo Rovers, and Mr. W. A.
Ward, secretary of tho Victoria Football Club formed themselves into a
convention and met at Victoria tlie
other day to consider the question of
where championship matches should
be playod. Every member of the convention took an active part in the discussion and considered tho pros and
cons of the question in a most liberal
and unselfish light. It was finally decided, by a unanimous vote, that na
tbe Vancouver ground is positively dangerous all matches for the championship must in future be played at Victoria. This mighty convention did not
pass a resolution of non-intercourse
with mainland clubs, probably for the
reason that tho decision already arrived
at would accomplish the end in view.
Machine Shops and Ship Yard.
The machine shop lately started by
the Royal City Planing Mills Co., aud
mentioned iu The Columbian laat
week, is going to prove n muoh greater
benefit to the oity than is generally
supposed. Yesterday, additional machinery, to the value of 915,000, was
ordered through F. G. Strickland &
Co., and when this new instalment
has been put in place the plant will be
complote. Tho Royal City Mills Co.,
has also ordered through F. G. Strickland & Co., a complete plant of ship
building machinery of the latest and
most improved type. When the shipyard und machine shops are in full
running order 150 men will be employed between the two, which means
several thousand dollars per month
to be expended in Westminster. Still
more improvements will be made by
the Royal City Mills later on.

.    The Sir. Premier.
As announced in The Columbian
yesterday the Btr, Premier was released
from quarantine and proceeded to Vanoouvor to land hor passengers. When
it was learned at Vancouver that the
steamer had been released before the
expiration of the usual quarantine the
health authorities decided not to al
low the vessel to tie up or the passengers to land, and, accordingly when
ahe reached the wharf Chief of Police
Stewart prevented a landing being
made. As was expected, this created
considerable of a row and a few pas*
lengen jumped ashore but were quickly captured and put aboard again, The
captain notified Mayor Oppenheimer
that he had a clean bill of health and
that he would hold the city responsible for the costs of the enforced delay.
At latest reports tho vessel was anchored in tho stream. It wai reported
on the street thii morning that the
Premier would come to Westminster
and disoharge her passengers and the
authorities were prepared to prevent
any suoh thing happening, but it is
hardly possible such a course was
thought of by the company.
The storm at Welland carried away
the new float bridge built across the
canal. Churches suffered considerably.
The old engine shed of the St, Catherine! & Niagara Central railway was
blown down. A heavy rain and wind
itorm prevailed in St, Catherines on
Wedneiday. Towards evening the
wind rose to tbe fury of a gale, and by
midnight a cyclone was raging. The
roof of the Merriton mills, a large
stone structure, and the roof of a stone
house attached to Riordan's paper mill
wero torn off and a large chironey.somo
40 or 50 feet high, at J. B. Henderson's
woollen mills, was blown down.
The peoplo of this country havo spoken. They declare hy thoir patronage of

From Our Special Correspondent.
Vancouver, Jun. 12.—Shortly after
10 o'clock thia morning Captain Irving
trasferred the passengers from the Premier to the Islander in the harbor and
then steamed to the Hasting's mill
wharf nnd attempted to land, but was
refused permission by tho mill owners.
The mayor and police with a number of
specials occupied tho O.P.R. and city
wharves lu force. Tho Islander returned to the C.P.R. wharf and attempted to effect a landing but was repulsed by police. Capt. Irving turned
tho hose of the Islander on the wharf,
and tho city retaliated by calling out
the fire department and turned two
streams on tho boat. Captain Irving
finally gave up tho attempt and the
Islander is now anchored off tho wharf.
Mayor Oppenheimer intends to resist
any attempt to land. Irving claims
that after tho Dominion quarantine
officer gave the Premier a clean bill
of health tho city had no right to resist tho landing, in which ho is sustained by the collector of customs here.
The matter will probably be fought
out in the courts. The blunder is
still hero and great excitement prevails. Among the passengers from
Victoria nre Mr. and Mrs. C. D. Rand
and Mrs. Keith and child. No word
from Ottawa yet, The Victoria passengers and mails are still aboard the
Islander, Capt. Irving not having
touched the wharf till after taking the
Premier's passengers aboard.
CORRESPONDENCE.
"Voter" and Mr, Cnnniughnm.
Editor Columbian: — Mr. Cunningham's communication of yesterday would
seem to indicate that ho is not a willing
volunteer, but that lie was pressed into
the service when he joined the ticket for
aldcrmanic honors. A pressed soldier is
not desirable. If it Ib going to bo such a
sacrifice to Mr. Cunningham to serve in
the city council as his utterances would
imply, much bettor to decline unwilling
service. The royal city needs at present
the help of citizens who will be able to
attend to their business; we have had
enough of "adjourned for want of a
quorum," we are not prepared to offer a
bonus for aldernianie services just yet,
Mr. Cunningham should have considered
his ability to servo on the council before
offering his services. His compliments
to those who have expressed then- views
publicly and also to the outgoing council
are not very prudent. They may hare
been led into mistakes, but I don't think
they can bo charged with "plundering."
I did not intimate that candidates should
be obliged to publish their address, but
that they should "step on the platform
and express themselves." It is too lato
after the nomination to declare intentions, for then the voters may be confined to the ticket. Voter.
Ratepayer's Views.
Editor Columbia!-:—Mr, Thos. Cunningham's letter of yesterday was a surprise, in that, whilo he would have us
reach out for and attain to a position
amongst the cities of the coast, he would
still keep up that old village style of
giving his views in his store or upon the
street. Now, if Mr. Cunningham were
to call a public meeting to state his
views, there are many who might not be
able to attend, but who would read hia
views, and, no doubt, be edified if expressed in the proper manner, through
tho medium of tlie press. An election
address is required, and it is to Mr. Cunningham's interest as a property-holder
to sit in that council, no matter how
meekly he sets aside bis claim to a seat.
The press, the acknowledged medium for
conveying the views, acta or intended
purpose ef one man, to many, should bo
used in Westminster, as it is in all cities
of importance, and for onoe I would have
rejoiced to see that old mossback principle give way to the enlightenment of the
age, and have Been this gentlemen and
other candidates state their views in as
manly a manner as Mr, E. S, Scoullar;
but, if they intend to follow this course
of silence in the council, they had better
not lay claim to a seat.    Ratepayer,
[From second page.]
for any moral perversion of this kind
must ultimately be productive of untold evil—an evil far more serious in
its consequences than the one we would
bo rid of. Daniel was a total abstainer, but he did not make any ipecial
noise about it, he did not insist on
everyone else doing as he did. If he
had, the attempt would have been a
miserable failure. Where the law of
God gives liberty, why should men
seek to impose bondage ? We aro all
members of one family; if one member
suffers it ia a detriment to all. We
should be deeply interested in one
another; there are those who are being
ruined by drink; if Christ died for
them cannot we in the spirit of true
brotherhood, in the spirit of Paul who
said "If meat make my brother to
stumble I will eat no flesh while the
world standeth," give up that which is
dragging him down. There is no dignity acquired iu resolving to use every
facility for self-indulgence, but abstinence* from a good motive, purifies
and elevates. If I wound my brother's
weak conscience I do more than satisfy
my appetite; 1 oppose Christ; freedom
without lovo generates bondage. With
reference to prohibition, I am in favor
of it just ai soon as the country is
ready for it, and as soon as the country is ready for it we will have it. So
long, howover, as a majority of the
people will insist on individual rights
will it be impossible; and so long as
an attempt is made to foroe it upon
the people will it be impossible. What
then are we to do in order to gain
prohibition? Are we simply to agitate?
Mere agitation never serves any good
fiurpose; the agitation must be intel-
igent, and must bo wisely directed
to the deaired end. Is it through politics that it Ib to be secured? Nol We
do not want politics in religion. If
the churoh in any of its parts becomes
a political organization its spirituality
is lost, its beneficient power is gone.
So alio we do not want politics in the
temperance cause, for if tho temperance party becomes a political machine
iti influence is gone—it has dug ita
own grave; the cause may rise again
but it will tako yean to gain what was
lost, No, we do not want politics in
religion, nor in the temperance cause;
but we do want religion in politics and
in tho temperance cause, and the more
the better, for there is a world of difference between the two. Some of
you will lay: "We have religion in
the temperance cause now." Yes, but
we want more of it; for when we get
religion more thoroughly worked into
the temperance cause, and worked out
through the lives of those engaged in
the cause, we ihall havo much grander
results. There muit be an inlay before thero is nn outlay, an involution
betoro there is an evolution, that will
be of permanent value here. The real
work, the foundation work, upon
which prohibitory legislation must
rest, cau only be dune, not by conventions or by acts of parliament, but by
individual effort under tho power of
truth. If thia cause is the cause of
God the weapons we must use are not
carnal but spiritual. The work that
ia most benefical to man, is most
glorifying to God; his desire is that
man should be free, not enslaved. If
we are to take any true part in this
great work, behind all our professions,
all our words, there muit be a life, or
they will be powerless for good. For
the evil is nob in the saloon, or in the
brewery, but in the mar. If the man
is healed at the centre of his being he
will be God's free man, temperate in
all things, and then, if never before,
he will understand that temperance
cannot be dwarfed into total abstinence,
or prohibition either, for temperance
is broader than these; it touches the
man at every point and regulates the
whole of life. If we believe in the
Cross and its triumphs, let us live and
labor in ita spirit, for God will be with
us just as wo are loyal to His truth—to
Him who is truth—and to Hia methods.
Our wenpons mual be spiritual.
In conclusion, allow mo to say I am
strongly againat the liquor traffic and
the innumerable evils In connection
with it, and I maintain that nny man
who has brains enough and bodily
vigor enough to make a success of business ia too good a man to spend his*
time and energies in this demoralising,'
and soul-destroying traffic I pity the
man who resorts to it as an easy means
of gaining a livelihood, but believe the
attempt to drive them out of it could
only result in evil. No, we must lead
them out of it on to better things. Not
by means of outward force; not by the
majesty of the human law, is the victory to be gained; it is by the strength
of conviction, the force of truth; the
nil-conquering power of lovo. This is
the method of the Gospel; and I would
say to all of you who are true workers
in tho temperance cauae, go on—you
have plenty of work to do on theae
lines, laid down by one wiser than ourselves; and if you do your best it will
bring rest, satisfaction, and reward.
The "Tocsin op the Soul, the Din-
ner Bell," as Byron calls it, suggests no
pleasing reflections to the dyspeptic, bilious sufferer, He partakes, of course,
but the subsequent torment is egregiously
out of proportion to the quantity of food
he eats, whioh lies undigested, a weight
like lead In his unhappy stomach. There
is a remedy, however, and its name is
Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure. No caso is entirely hopeless,
