A Wichita preacher delivered a
discourse last Sunday on "Lying,"
and when he went down town on
Monday morning not more than
half the people lie met would speak
to him.—Ex. That's generally
what happens in this wicked world
when preachers begin to get too
personal, which reminds us—
Onoe again the danger of overindulgence in tobacco, is brought
vividly before the publio. Edwin
Booth has been in the habit of smoking twenty strong cigars a day. It
may be that to somo men a email
amount of tobacco every day is
beneficial, but a man wbo lights a
frosh cigar every half-hour is flirting
with physical collapse.—Ex.
In 1880 some thirty young women
in Berlin started an Old Maids' Olub,
with a provision for a fine of 1000
marks upon every ono who married.
The club wus a great success, but
suddenly nn epidemic pf marriage
set in, and at the annual meeting
this year only one member was
left, and she found herself called
upon to dispose of 28,000 marks,
tho accumulation pf tho lines paid
by tho former members. Sbe took
tlio advice of the ex-members, nnd
it was decided that half the sum
should go to a hospital, and that the
solitary old maid should have tho
rest for herself.
Lady Hornby, wifo of the liriti.li
.Admiral, is a "character." Yeavi
ngo she was struck in the ey.1 by ■
shot from a catapult iu the
in Loudon and lost its sight, '
is, however, siiu. p as w nesri1 . and
her one remaining ey» amply do•■•:*
duty for both, She is ono of the
most courageous women alive, and
once saved the life of a favourite
cat by herself biting a mad dog at
the tail. Sho delights in nothing so
much us startling people, and once
sent a hotel full of dowagers into fits
by telling them the secret of her
plentiful supply of exotics was her
habit of going around the cemetery
every morning and snatching them
from the tombs. There nre endless stories about the sayings and
doings of her ladyship; and she does
aU sho knows to foster a character
of eccentricity.— -Ex.
The Now York Sun says: A
ropott comes from Germany that the
government is likely to invite France
and England to co operate in a movement to suppress the liquor traffic
on the west coast of Africa, This
news will be heard with concern by
some rum manufacturers in our own
country. It may not be generally
known that tho great centre of
culture contributes about all the
liquor from our land which is poured
down the throats of native Africans.
It is said that one firm within five
miles of the Massachusetts state
houso has a contract to supply 3,000
gallons of rum a day for seven years
for the African trado. This thriving business is doubtless a source of
great satisfaction to tho makers of
I rude ruin, but we see another aspect
of tho caso in such piteous appeals
as that of Chief Hama, who, in his
rocout request for protection oguinst
the liquor sellers, said : "I dread
the white man's drink more than all
tho assegais of my enemies."
An exchange revamps an ancient
but somewhat amusing "cheHuut"
ns follows: In an English country
church the curate had to give out
two notices, the first of which was
about baptisms und tho latter had to
do with a new hymn-book. Owing
to an accident he inverted the order
and gave out as follows: "I am
requested to announce that the
new hymn-book will be used for the
first time in this ohuroh on Sunday
next; and I am also requested to
call attention to the delay which
often takes placo in bringing children to be baptized; they should be
brought on tho earliest day possiblo.
This is particularly pressed oa
mothers wno have young babies.1'
"And for the information of tlio
who have none," added tlio recto:
in gentle, kindly tones, nnii who,
being doaf, had not heard whq s
had been previously said—./ttlia for
the informati- n nf thoso wbo .
none, I may stato, if wished, thoy
oan be obtained on application iu
the vestry immediately after norvi-qf
to-day. Limp onr-s, 1 shilling encli;
with stiff backs, 2 shillings."

THE LABOR COMMISSION.
Ottawa, April 10.—The indications
now are that the house will not be
prorogued until the first week in May.
Some time ago the adjournment was
ejtpeoted at Easter, but little progress
has been made lately. The banking
and commerce committoes to-day reported Mr. Clarke Wallace's combines
bill with a slight. amendment. The
report of the labor commission is issued. It is veiy complete, The investigations of the relations between
labor and capital have been of a most
elaborate nature. Wages in Canada
ara shown to be goneraliy higher than
at any previous time, while the hours
of labor have been somewhat reduced.
The necessaries of lifo are nlso lower.
Rents, however, have advanced,
especially in (he cities. The testimony
does not sustain the bolief that serious
immorality exists iu Canadian factories
in which operatives of both bc-xcs are
employed. Little evidence was found
of co operation in industry or trade,
and none at all of Ihe participation by
working men or in the evidence that
sailing vessels navigating inland waters
frequently undertake voyages under
circumstances which imperil the livos
of iho crews. Tho darkest pages in
the testimony are thoso recording tho
boating und imprisonment of children
employed in factories. The commission hope that the barbarous practices
may bo removed and such trontment
made a penal offence. The system nf
fining employees is found to prevail
very largely. They recommend the
selection of a holiday to be known ns
"Labor Day." As regards immigration, they do not favor pecuniary assistance being extended, but recommend a strict medical examination ut
the ports of landing and that persons
likely to become objects of charity or
those which have incurable diseases
should be forbidden to land, and that
tho importations of foreign labor under contract be forbidden. Also that
the contract labor be simply utilised
for government purpooB. The establishment of a labor bureau ib also 10-
conmiendod. The system of fining
employees is condemned, Boards of
arbitration to settlo strikes are suggested. The report also has n plea
for the nine hours' system. In conclusion it says that tho interests of
working people will be promoted if all
matters relating to them be plaoed under the administration of the ministers
of the crown, eo that a labor bureau
may be established, statistics collected,
information disseminated, etc.

MR. SMALLEY S CABLE.
Londpn, April 17.—Nothing has
been read here with more interest than
tho reports on the Samoan disaster.
The Telegraph says:—The cheer of the
Trenton's crow to tbe Calliope has been
heard in England. Consider the scene,
says the Telegraph, and the matchless
heroism and generosity of this Yankee
orew almost sure of instant death themselves. They could boo the. Queen's
ship fighting the hurricane and appreciated tho gallantry of tho effort with
the generous pleasure of. true mariners.
We do not know in all naval records
any sound which makes sweeter music
upon the oar than the cheora of the
Trenton's men. It was distressed
manhood greeting triumphant' manhood. The doomed saluting the saved.
It was pluckier and more humane than
nny cry raised upon the deck of a victorious line of battle ship. It never
can be forgotten, never must be forgotten by Englishmen speaking of Americans. That dauntless cheer to the
Calliope was the expression of an immortal courage." These are extracts
from a long editorial all in a similar
tone.

Oracle. "Split the liberal party exactly in two." "Tho election is worthless as a tost of tho progress of dissentient liberalism" says Mr. O'Connor.
A similar voice comes from Dublin,
declaring that this not a coer*
cionist gain. "Mr. Chamberlain has
had his way" says Yorkshire, but at

thinks no encouragement is to be

SUIT FOR DIVORCE.
Paris, April 17.—In view of the
conduct of his wifo, Clinton B, Ferry,
the milliouaro lumber merchant of
Tacoma, W. T., has filed a petition
for divorce this morning. The papers
today print tho wholo story of Ferrys
trouble, whioh was briefly mentioned
in last nights despatches. Ferry devoted the most of his lime to the col-'
lection of paintings, and to- hunting
up rare pieces of artistic bric-a-brac.
Sirs. Ferry spout most of hor time in
shopping, visiting friends and driving,
In the course of her shopping expeditions Bhe mado numerous friends who
had not the advantage of her husband's
acquaintance. Among the most welcome of hor daily visitors was oro
named Hippolyte, an English speaking
salesman. Mrs, Ferry soon boame
quite infatuated with tho young man
and her conduct with him gave rise
to much comment uf uncomplimentary
nature among tho Americans. About
10 days ago, Ferry returning somewhat unexpectedly from a search for
somo work of the Old Masters, overheard his wife nnd Hippolyte talking
together in a manner which denoted
more than ordinary intimacy and he
had him thrown out of the house.
Forry employed private detectives to
watch Mrs. Ferry and yesterday
afternoon the wife was tracked to a
fourth rato hotel whero she was surprised half an hour later by Ferry who
was acoompamed by a commis*
sory of the police and a number
of constables. Mrs. Feqpr sprang at
husband the very momM the door
had been burst open, and before the
police could interfere she had bitten
oft'a portion of hii nolo. Hippolyte
succeeded in effecting his escape. Carriages were then called and a procession was formed which was to conduct
the wife to St. Laiaro, the prison reserved for disreputable women. On ,
the way to jail, Ferry wu forced by
the ptinofhis noso to stop at a doctors.
When the police arrived at tho prison gates with Mrs. Ferry her committal wai refuied thore, In consequence of the absence of the husband.

The  latest crazo  in the United
States—and it is at fever heat just
now—is the Oklahoma land excitement.   The history of this affair, according to American exchanges, is
as follows:   Tho   new   territory of
Oklahoma, which will   bo  thrown
open to settlement on the 22nd of
the present month, embraces some
23,000,000 acres, while   Oklahoma
proper, which has been the scone of
the successive invasions and evictions of settlers ever since 1880, has
only 1,887,800 acres.   This original
tract of Oklahoma, which is in the
heart of the Indian Territory, was,
itt   1850,   given    by   congress  to
the  Creeks  and remained in their
undisputed possession until in 1856
they made a treaty with tho neighboring Seminoles, under which they
held  the country jointly for ten.
years, when they united in selling it
to  the United States for about 15
cents an acre.   A few months aftor
the salo congress granted the Atlantic & Pacific Railway a right of way
through  the  purchased   tract, together with   alternate   sections of
land for forty miles un either side of
the  road-bod.   The   road was surveyed but never built, for the company could not make it pay unless
fhe country was settled, and settlers
coutd  not  legally enter it.   Their
exclusion was owing to the fact that
the Creeks and Seminoles sold the
land to the government for the use
of other Indians and freedmen, and
that it could not be given to the use
of the whites without the consent of
the Indians and the subsequent proclamation by the president of the
United States that the land was
open to settlement.   This was the
state of the case when an Indiana
adventurer by the name of Payne
organized an Oklahoma town company with an alleged capital of $2,-
000,000 and, with twenty-five men,
succeeded in 1880 in escaping the
vigilance of the army and founding
a town, called Ewing, in   the  forbidden land.   But in about   three
weeks the town was summarily depopulated owing to the imprisonment
of all its inhabitants.   From that
time on^however, new settlements
have been constantly made by fresh
invaders—the largest being effected
by Payne in 1884, when he succeeded  in getting 600 people into the
-country and founding the town of
Bock Foils,   But this  rising city,
like its predecessors, soon fell a vie
tim to the irresistible' power of the
military.   The pressure of theboom-
- ers has been such as to force from
the Indians (so  says one of   their
number) a reluctant consent to tbe
whites entering the country. The latter nre now collected, it is estimated
30,000 strong, on tbe Kansas border,
nnd at tbe word "go," on the 22nd of
this month, they will make a mad
dash, on foot and by horse and team,
for the promised land of Oklahoma,
which the boomers have been industriously describing as "a land flowing with milk and honey."   A late
Kansas City despatch says that in
that city Oklahoma is the one topic
on every tongue and the one end of
every enterprise.   The local jobbing
trade is holding off ite regular custom to supply the one source of demand.   Hardly sufficient  for  tho
current needs of tho city is left in
the hardware stores and the imple
mentand general merchandise stores.
In Santa Fe the freight yards  are
crowded.   On the tracks and under
moving ordors are about thirty huge
trains freighted   with   anticipated
necessities of the coming community.
There are houses in sections   ready
to be bolted together  nnd   entered
for habitation within sixty minutes
after  their   delivery.   There   are
completed stocks of overy   conceivable sort of merchandise, and with
each carload of stock is packed away
the building required to harbor  it.
In this manner  drug   stores,   dry
goods, boot and shoe stores, saloons
and groceries are drawn up in readiness to be lie launched forward upon
a favored centra   It is estimated
that by May 1st there will be sixty
thousand eager land seekers jostling
each other for choice   locations  in
the   virgin   territory.   Fierce  disputes and unbridled lawlessons may
be expected to be the order for somo
time.
The common black boar is plentiful in British Oolumbia, and, as well
H  deer  and   other  game, can bo
bagged in season (and bruin's season
ii large and extensive in this balmy
clime—from March till November) by
the advenlfcrous sportsman who will
take an hour or so's stroll from any
one' of our oities.   Well, but what
of this,  some will Bay.   Nothing
muoh, exoept that boar hunting is
pretty good iport for those that like
that oort of thing, you know.   But
the point we are coming at is ono in
which the farmers, or, more strictly,
perhaps, the itock raisers, will be
interested.   Tho world is indebted
to ad ingenioui Tank in Northern
Wiiconiin for the disovery of a new
induitiy, which is none other than
a bear farm.   The Hippy thought"
and iti materialisation are thui given
to tfaa world by an American ex-,
clung.' "A gentleman in Northern
Wisconsin, engaged in supplying the
market with venison and bear meat,
found his supply of the raw material
running short; and, with true
American fertility of resourco, set
about replenishing it artificially.
Instead of shooting a few lean bears
at sight and selling thoir oarcasses
and hides for a song, he enticed
them into traps, took them home to
a pen, fattened them carefully, and
sold them, when in prime condition,
at the highest market prices. The
success of his experiment opens to
the enthusiast the vista of a new
industry which may one day divide
the field with stock raising, There
is something picturesque and seductive in the very notion of a bear
farm. It will appeal to the untram-
meled spirit of the northwest as the
mere oulture of tho shorthorn and
polled Angus cattlo can never do.
And it appears that the enterprise
is of extreme simlicity. Of course,
you must first catch your bears;
but, nfter tho business is onco woll
established, the natural increaso of
a herd—or should wo say "flock," or
"covey"—of bears will keep up the
establishment. Then there is the
keeping, which does not cost much.
Tho pioneer in the business, to whom
we are indebted for information,
says that corn meal is just the thing,
nnd that a grown bear oats only as
much ns a hog. As the pelt is worth
a good many dollars alone, and the
meat brings a high price in the market, the profits of the business must
bo very large. Keeping nnd attendance must, of course, be considered.
But your bear is a clumsy fellow,
and while a pit will hold him, a good
wire fence will also turn him. If, as
is suggested, the captive bears have
their claws clipped and their front
teeth extracted, they could be kept
with impunity 04 domestic animals,
As for their hugging piopensities,
the suggestion that the farmer wear
a spiked coat of mail when he goes
to feed them is hardly feasible. It
might be better to let tho ladies of
tho family attend to nnd keep thom
at n distance. Tho new industry is
evidently so feasible and tho returns
from it so large that wo may look
forward to the day when droves of
bear will blacken all our fields, and
the pensive bovine, as a domestic
animal and a food product, will yield
tothe juicy nnd succulent plantigrade." All joking apart, wo should
think that a syndicate might bo
formed in this city that would just
literally "bear" the market. We
to see the idea taken up. A
prize even might be offered for "best
grade bear" at the provincial exhibition. If the royal city docs not
move promptly in the matter, it's ten
to one if Vancouver's enterprising
mayor and council will not be out
with circulars calling for a meeting
at the "salt water terminus" for the
purpose of organizing a bear raisers'
association or some thing of tho
sort. Tho matter, seriously, will
bear looking into. If the Wisconsin
man can make money off of a bear
farm, the   same thing can bo done

GOING A-VISITING.
What M. Quad Saw and Heard in
a Rural Depot
Motile-!- Hayseed anil Her FalthfUl Husband   Bid  Each   Other   Farewell
—Auspicious Beginning  of  a
JJIoBt Important Journey.
Iwont down to tho depot two hours be-
fori; train timo because I had several er-
l-iiiKli to do thoro, writes M. Quad in tho
Detroit Free Press. Looking up tho broad
street wliich ran through the village, I saw
an old black horse, hitched to alight wagon,
coming down on the gallop. In the wagon
woro u man and woman. The woman waved
her hand and tho man piled tho whip, aud
in a couplo of minutes tbo gig turned in and
stopped at tbe platform with such suddenness tbat tho mud flew in all directions.
"Hus she gonol" shouted tho woman, aa
she begun to climb out.
••Who]"
"Tho train."
"No, ma'am."
"Well, that's a piece of good luck. 1
thought we'd bo about fivo minutes too late.
For mercy's sake get that trunk checked
nud buy my ticket!"
'•Yes, Mary, yes," he replied, as lie put
forth bis best effort, and he dragged the
chest down tho platform and asked for a
ticltet and a check.
"It's an hour and fifty minutes yet," ro*
plied tho agont.
"W-whatI Hear that, Mary I You've
beon fretting and stowing since three
o'clock Una morning, and hero wo aro two
hours ahead of timet"
"It can't bel"
" That's what he save."
"Well, William, don't you believo all ho
Bays I You remember how Aunt Harper
got left by taking iho word of a ticket
agent. Sometimes trains are ahead of timo,
and BometimeB behind. Kiss me good-bye,
William,"
" But there's lots of time, Mary."
Bho appealed to me to settle the question,
and when I put the time at an hour aud forty-
fivo minutoB sho consented to go into the
waiting-room. Bhe sat down on the edge
of a scat and nervously began an inventory.
"Here's my handkerchief, and here's my
wallet witti ninety cents in it, and hero's
my snuff-box and thimble and steel-bowed
glasses. Here's the recipe for making hard
KOiip I'm taking to Cousin Jane, and here's
(hat box of mutton taller to go to'Squiro
Johnson. WUllani, I'm all ritrbt—haven't
forjjotton n thing!"
"Do toll I"
- " And Ionlyhadave'wee'Eii to get roady
in I  Well, William, good-byo."
"Oh, pshaw, Mary—lota of timo yet."
Sho sat down again, took a second inventory, and then musingly said:
" I covered up the flour barrel, and hung
up that bag of dried pumpkin, and put that
jar of soft soap away, and lowered the curtains in tho parlor, and shut up the cook-
Btovo."
" Yob, Mary," roplied the husband.
"And I poured the water out of the tea*
kettle, carried that piece of butter down
stairs, sent homo Mra, Aiken's drawin' of
tea and oup of brown sugar, and put that
piece of pork back into tho brine."
" Yos, I'll swear to it."
"Well, good-bye, William. I'll be homo
in threo weeks."
" Ii. isn't time yet, Mary. It's over an hour
boforo tho train'll come along."
"Well, don't mako any mistake. You
know, Cousin Hannah dreamed that I got
loft, nnd I don't wont It to come true. And
now lot's ace: You aro to board at Henry's,
and to go over to tho houso onco a dayi"
" Yos."
" Bo careful to ebut all the doors after
you."
"I will."     "
" And don't build no firoa.'
"No."
"And don't lot tho swill-pail not frozen
up again."
"No."
" Well, William, good-byo. Itmustbetime
togo."
"Oh, now, Mary, but it's just an hour by
the clock., Don't bo so nervous."
" I am a little nervous, I suppose, but I
reckon it's because I'Vo forgotten something. Did you take the starch baok to Mrs,
Davis!"
"Idid.",,
"And carry the Wldder Smith's kettle
homo?"
"Yes."
" And did I scald the coffee-pot out and
hang it up behind tho stove!"
" Yes, I saw you."
" Ahd wipe out tho stove boiler and hang
it up hi tho cellar-way)"
"Yea."
" Well, that's all, I guess, and I'll kiss you
good-bye.  I'll write you on Sunday."
"Now, Mary, don't bo so oneasy. It's a
bod sign."
" Yos, I seem to be oneaay, but X hopo it
don't mean airthquakes or hurricanes, Now,
William, your liver medicine Is on tho shelf
lu tho kitchen."
"Yoa."
" It's the right-hand bottle. The other has
got goose ile in it, and If anybody Ib taken
with croup you want to send it right over,"
"I'll do it."
"You tako your liver medicine throe
times a day—half a tableapoonful—in water.
I loft out an old spoon."
"Yob."
"If you havo a pain in your chest mako a
mustard plaster. There's mustard in that
tin box on tho second buttery shelf, left-
hand corner, and you oan tear up one of my
old aprons."
"Yes."
"Let's sect You may have another bilo
when I am gone. Tho flaxseed is In that
yallcr box on the top buttery shelf."
"Yea.".
"And—why, for mercy's sake!"
" What is it!"
"Thero hain't no ink In tbe house for you
to write with! I knew I'd forgotten something 1"
"Thflt'B BO."
" Well, it's too late now. Put a littlo vine
gar and lampblack in tbe old bottlo, and I
guess you can mako out. Well, good-bye,
William. Remember, I havo chalked down
tho number of hens on tho woodshed door,
and you won't forget that we have thirteen
hogs, forty-six sheep, one horso and a yoko
of oxen. Lot tho clock run down and don't
try to wind it, and if you want tho lantern
you'll And it on tho hook in tho woodshed,
with candlo and matches all ready. Woll,
good-byo, William."
Perfect Appreciation.
Oellert was the author of some fables
whioh were very popular in their day; ho is
a man of whom tho following delightful
story is recorded. A Saxon farmer drovo
up to his door with a cart of fire-wood ono
day, and inquired whether the author of
tho fables lived there. On being answered
in the affirmative, ho unloaded his cart, saying tbat he intended it as a present,tho best
ho could give, for the man who had given
him no muoh pleasure.
An Undesirable Exposure.
The latest fad lu plumbing is to leave all
tho pipes in a house open to tho view. The
pipes are,as & rule, the same as they used to
be whon they were Inclosed, except thoy aro
made of polished brats or aro nickel-plated.
For Bomo reason, known only to fashion, it
is presumed to be very reassuring as well
as healthful for cranks and others interested tn sower-gas to bo ablo to see the pipes
. they are so muoh lu awe of.
Mugultude or tlio Kurtli.
According to a recent authority, tho circumference of the globe is twenty-five thou*
sand and twenty milea. It is not ns easy to
comprehend so ■bpuiidoua it cli-ole as itls
to put down its extent in figuim It becomes moro palpable, perhaps, by comparison, such as this: a railway train traveling
Incessantly night and day, at the rato of
twonty-five miles an hour, would requiro
■tx weeks to go around it The cubical bulk
3f the earth Is two hundred and sixty thousand millions of cubic miles. If tho mutorl-
ali which form the globe wero built up in
tho form,of a column, having a pedestal of
the magnitude of England and Wales, the
height of tho column would bo nearly four
nud a half millions of miles., A tunnel
through tho earth, from England to New
Zealand, would be nearly eight thousand
milei longt**""

i mining thu machine now nearly threo
months, and thcrd aro still wide fields
open for the exercise of statesmanship.
Moro than a mouth ago it waa announced, (and wo hailed the announcement with unmingled satisfaction),
that after April fools day all the
at roots were to bo cleared of rubbish
and other unsightly incumbrances, and
n system of orderly decency inaugurated. This is the 17th, and our naturally beautiful streets hide their comeliness under nil sorts of disfigurement.
Piles of old lumber, debris iii front of
buildings, brush that has been thrown
out of orchards, forsuketi oil cans, dirty garbage nud unsightly accumulations
of all sorts are resting undisturbed
wherever tho oyo is turned. When a
rat is caught and killed, out it goes on
to one nf the principal buBincRS streets
to lie and rot at-d poison tho uir with
itd pestilential nastinose. When a
bottlo or lamp or a piece of crockery
hns bceu broken, it is forthwith ejected into tho vicinity of tho rat, nnd its
ahnrp tdgos become a menance to both
men and beast. If a man cleans up
his back yard, the Btreet becomes a
convenient receptacle for tho refuse.
Is it not timo the governing powers became aware that thu character of a
city is judged by tho character of the
streets! The eyes of the peoplo are
upon thu nldormon, and if iho by-law*!
ngniiist streot nuisances bu not speedily enforced, there may come to many
minds the unwelcome conviction that
public f.iith iu personal sincerity has
been misplac-d.

Latest reports from the Mission
state that work on the railway und
traffic bridge is being hurried forward
with tho utmost vigor. The conductors have all as mnny men employed
ue the work will permit, and nn less
than 2-10 laborers and mechanics nro
constantly at work. Three pile drivers are employed driving tho piles
for the approaches and piers, and this
part of the contract is being mo-it rapidly accomplished. No orders have
been yet given to the contractors to
widen the main span, and unless
prompt action is taken by the board
of trade and city council the bridge
will be completed and further measures
againit it rendered useless. At the
rato tho work ia progressing at present
the bridge will be completed by June
l<t, ao there is little time to losi'.
Several stores have been opened at
the Mission, and all nre reported to be
doing a splendid business. Town lots
aro engaging somo attention. A few
enthusiasts are about to lay out n town
site and place the lots on the market.
D. Miller, for many years manager

Canmoro is to be the coming mining
town on tho cistern slope of the
Rockies, and it is already having a
little real estate boom. Tho coal
mines ai Cunmoru are n reality, and
the coal is pronounced by experts to
be a superior article for blacksmithing
and, also, that it will cuke. Orders
are coming in freely from San Francisco and other Coabt points. At present
tho output ia 00 to;is a duy, and thia

TUB UllITi.SH  BUDGET,
London, April 15.—The presentation of tho Budget by Mr. Goschen,
tho Chancellor of tho Exchequer, waa
thu distinguishing feature of the proceedings of the Houso of Commons
this evening. Contrary to expectation,
tho Budget does not in the least affect
any article of trade with America, and
is singularly freo from startling in-
novutiuiiB. The only new points Worthy
of especial mention are tho increase of
the death duties or the taxation of
legacies and a conaiderablo increase of
the present taxation on malt. Both
of these are liberal measures and the
first mentioned may bo aaid to be almost socialistic since the contention of
tho socialists is thut the right of a post
mortem division of property does not
exist and that, therefore, all property
not devised beforo death should revert
to the state. The taxation of legacies
already plays an important part in tlie
British revenue and tho proposed increase will without doubt rcceiye the
full support of the Radical members as
a step iu the right direction. Mr.
Goschen was interrupted by vociferous
cheering from the Opposition benches
when he mentioned tho fact that the
sale of coffee had largely declined owing
to the persistent advertising of their
wares in which the dealers in cocoa
had lately indulgod and which had resulted in the establishment of :. tremendous trado in that commodity.
Mr. Goschou occupied 2 hours und 42
minutes in the delivery of his speech.
Mr. Goschen, in his speech, said that
tho revonue would exceed the estimates of the budget by £1,045,000,
whilo the expenditures were £941,000
bolow the estimate, leaving u surplus
of £2,680,000. The revenue from
mult and spirituous liquors and tobacco
had decreased. That from tea showed
a small increase, and the income tux
had realized £1,210,000 over tho estimates. The Postal service revenue
was £30,000 more aud that from stamps
£490,000 greater than anticipated.
The rovenuo for the current year
would probably bo £85,000,000 und
the expenditure ubout £87,000,000.
The deficit would bo 'met by taking
£1,000,000 of the sum saved lust year
and putting an additional tax upon the
death duties on estates of the value of
£10,000 and upwards and adding one-
fourteenth of a penny to the taxation
on each gallon of beer manufactured.
CHAPLEAU'H HEALTH.
London, April 10.—Tho latest news
from tho Hon. J. A. Chapleau, who
left Quecustowu by the str. Etruria
yesterday is that he is in excellent
health and spirits. Dr. Guyon assured
him that ho is uow thoroughly restored
to health,
BOLD ATTEMPT TO UOH A HANK..
Minneapolis, April 10.—A bold
and nearly successful attempt was
made to rob tho State Bank. Two
men went into the bank when only
two employes were present, one cov-
eroed the employoB with n revolver
while the other jumped over the railing, thrust about eight thousand dd*
lurs into a valise. At this moment n
depositor entered and this forced the
uncovering of the nsst. cashier who
rushed to the safe to get a revolver.
The robber then threw the valise to
his accomplice who dashed into tho
president's room by mistake then
jumped through a window and fled,
meanwhile tho other man escaped.
There was a wild chase iu whioh threo
or four policemen joined and finally
the two robbers were captured and
lodged in jail. The names of the men
are giyen as Jaa. Henry and Fred.
Douglass.
