Another gem from the Jewelers'
Weekly: "No, Young Man," said
the jeweller, "I'm sorry, but I
can't give you an advertisement.
You see I'm troubled with heart
disease, and my physician has
ordered me to stop advertising, so
that I may enjoy  absolute   quiet."
fhe United States inspectors!
who have been investigating the
binning of (he steamer Katie Adams
have obtained evidence which
satisfies them that forty-two persons were lost, instead of fourteen
as reported, It appears that eight-
teen children among the deck passengers and ten of the boat's crew
perished in addition to the victims
previously noted.

When the Princo of Wales \yas
travelling in the Holy Land with
the late Dean of Westminster, says
an exchange, the royal party oauie
one day to the banks of Jordan.
As they sat at meat in the tents
they beheld a number of mounted
Arabs riding down to the ford, headed by their sheikh, Presently an
Arab messenger arrived at tho
tents, and his message was that the
sheikh desired to see Dean Stanley.
The small but courageous dean at
once arose and walked down unarmed to the interview. The sheikh,
who had dismounted, advanced
with dignity, laid both his hands on
tho dean's shoulders, and beholding
him steadfastly, said theso words :
"Arthur Penrhyn Stanley." The
astonished dean looked up and saw
that that Arab chieftain was Wii*
lianiGiflbrdPalgrave.
Says an exchange : It has become
trite to say that truth is stranger
than fiction, because the remark has
to be made so often. In the arrest
in England the other day, of Edward Bawdon, for persistently
annoying Lady Oonyers and her
daughter, the Hon. Miss Violet.
Lane Fox, a most curious case has
had fresh attention directed to it.
This man, who is about forty years
of age, has been pestering these
ladies, writing to them threatening
and otFensive letters, and endeavoring to gain access to their presence
at different times during the last
five years. More than once he has
been imprisoned and bound over to
keep the peace. The publicity given
to the case on divers occasions has
had no effect on the man, Rawdon's
motive does not appear to be any.
other than a cowardly desire to
frighten the ladies, especially the
daughter, into paying a, sum of
money, or, perhaps, marrying him:
Tho home secretary had the man
examined to determine his mental
condition, but physicians pronounce
Bawdon sane. Such peristent persecution has told on the young
lady's health, and it is extraordinary
that in a free country an offence of
this sort could not be punished
more severely. A good whipping
might have some effect.
An American paper has the following about Senator Biddleberger,
who will be remembered as the boss
"tail-twister" of the American
senate: Senator Biddleberger recently told the Washington correspondent of the Louisville Courier-
Journal that he would resign his
seat in the senate at once, adding
thnt his resignation would probably
bo presented beforo the end of the
Scar, His relations with hia colleagues, he said, were such that ont
of respect for himself ho must
reliro to private life. It is uot surprising that Mr. Biddleberger should
conclude that his relations with his
colleagues are unsatisfactory, since
there are but two or three of them
who are on speaking terras with him.
During the greater portion of the
Six years that he has been a mem
ber of the senate, Mr. Biddleberger
has occupied the position of an
Ishmaelite. His tongue has been
agaiust every other senator and tho
tongue of every other senator has
been against him. The republicans,
with whom he usually votes, hold
him in as great contempt as the
democrats, and even Mahone, his
former friend and benefactor, would
liavo nothing whatever to do with
hiin during the last year that they
served together in the senate, It
is added that the senator has lately
been in a state of almost chronic
intoxication and has grown very
coarse and abusive in his language
even in tho senate.
Gilbert Laird, St. Margaret's Hopo,
Orkney, Scotland, writes; "I am re.
quested by several friends to order another parcel of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric
Oil. The last lot I got from you having
boon tested ln aeveral esses of rheumatism, has given relief when doctors' medicines h.ve failed to havo any effect. The
excellent qualities of this medicine should
be made known, that the millions of stif.
fercrs throughout the world may benefit
by its providential discovery."

Mil. LAJfp 'UUJIKRB'H CAULK.
London, Jan. 10.—The additional
correspondence respecting the Sackville incident whioh bn just been published shows tbat Lord Salisbury is
really evading the sending of a British
representative to Washington in order
to punish the United States for having
packed off Lord Sackville. .The Marquis of Silisbury lays down the principle that the country ought not to recall a representative simply because the
f-overnment of the country to which
ie is accredited deems htm to be persona ingrata, and he bases this view
of international law npon the despatch
of Lord Palmerston. Theoretically
Lord Palmerston may have been in the
right, but considering that tho object
of having a representative accredited
to a foreign government is to promote
peace, amity and good feeling, the
knowlege that the person selected is
not likely to contribute to these ends
ought to be sufficient cause for his immediate recall The U. S. need not,
however, trouble themselves about the
follies of Lord Salisbury for tbey are
no doubt fully aware that the British
people would sacrfiice the whole peer-
ago than in any way compromise the
close and intimate friendship which,
thank heaven, exists between the two
great branches of the English speaking
race. Probably the main reason why
Lord Salisbury does not send a minis*
tor to the U. S. is that he is anxious
that Sackville, who is one of his relatives, shall enjoy for a few mora
monthi bis ease in Europe while drawing his salary as our minister at Wash*
ington,
Marlborough's orchids.
The Duke and Duchess of Marlborough have been entertaining a large
family party at Blenheim. The facts
about the Blenheim orchids are as
follows; The duke haa about forty
thousand plants of one sort and
another, but manages his hot-houses on
business principles and whenever a
rare flower turns up among the imported specimens be Bells it. He never
gives 60 guineas or anything like that
sum for a plant, as has been stated,
but sold one the other day for 190
guineas to Mr. Saunders, the famous
dealer. It need hardly be said that
the value of tho collection is a trifle
under 2 million pounds sterling, the
preposterous estimate put upon it by
some addle-pated scribblers.
THB QUEEN 8 MOVEMENTS.
The queen will leave England for
the continent, according to present arrangements, on Tuesday, March Sth,
for Biarritz, where she intends to reside for a month. It ia highly probable that tho Empress Frederick, who
entirely changed ner plana during latt
week, may go to Barritz next week, in
which cue sho will stay there until
the end of the queen's sojourn. The
empress is a most accomplished player
both on violin and guitar and not a
day passes but she amuses herself for
an hour or two with one of these instruments, which accompany her everywhere.
FROM   STANLEY.
Brussels, Jan. 10.—A letter has
been received here from Stanley, written Aug. 17th, to Tipnoo Tib. The
letter is dated from Bama, Banalya
Muretia and was bronght by a messenger to Stanley Falls and tent from
there to the coast and arrived here
last night by post. Thia letter is the
only one from Stanley that haa reached the cout aa yet. Tbe remainder
of Stanley's letters remain at Stanley
Falls and will not arrive in Europe for
two or three months. In the letter
Stanley uys he and the expedition are
in good health ami writes: "I hope
to see you face to face before many
days. I reachqd this place this morning with a hundred aud thirty-six natives belonging to Emin Pasha's forces.
It is now eighty-two days since I left
Emin on Lake Nyanza I hare lost
only three men on alt the way, two
drowned and one deserted. I found
tho white men who wore looking for
Emin Pasha quite well. The other
whito man, Casati, is also safe and
woll. Emin hss ivory in abundance
und plenty of food of all kinds. I
found him a very good and kind man
ahd his soldiers and followers blessed
pur black men for their kindness in
coming so far tu show them tho way
out of tho province. Many of them
woro quite ready and desirous of following me out of the country but I
nsked them to remain quiet for n fow
months and uid that I might return
and bring other men to fetch the goods
left at Yamabunga. Emm's men prayed God thnt he would give me strength
to finish the work I had undertaken.
Now my friend what are you going todo
in the matter? We havo gone over
the road to Emin twice and know it
well. We know where tho company's
places are and just where to And sleep
and rest. If you will go with me it is
well. I will stay here for ten days and
then will proceed slowly. Wo will
move hence to-Big Island, two hours
march from hero It is about this
placo and here aro plenty of shelter
and foot), Now whatever you may
have to uy to me my ears will be open
to hear it with as good heart as hss
always been Therefore if you come,
come quickly for on the eleventh
morning from this I shall move on, all
my white men are well but I left them
all behind except my servant who is
with me."

enquiry since proceedings began was
given to-day. Patrick Delaney, ono
of the Invincible-., hss turned informer

examination by Sir Ohu. Ruuell.

Lonuon, Jan. 10.—At the opening

concluded that O'Brien had not intended any disrespect to the court and
therefore he would inflict no punishment upon him.
THE FALSE   PROPHET IN DANGER.
London, Jan. 10.—Highly important news has boen received that Khartoum is threatened by an attaok from

of affairs at Khartoum and hence felt
it was safe to withdraw the British |
troops at Suakim.

well received by the French consul at
Obook he wu not permitted to land

on obstructions in the Columbia

In this number of The Columbian
will bo found Mr. Oulbiok's address
to the municipal electors of tho city.
It will be seen that Mr. Calbick is
sound on tho main questions, nnd
nnd such mon tho city wants. Mr.
Oalbick, as our readers know, is ono
of tho nine—called by some tho railway ticket—who declared themselves first as candidates for aldermen, by a joint card in tho columns
of this paper. We stated at the
time, from a consideration of the
known sentiments and general character of the men composing the first
ticket, that tho city could not do
better than return thoso nino candidates as aldermen. Sinco that time
we have seen no reason to materially
alter the first sentence. It is true
that -some able and good men have
taken the field besides, tand it rests
with the electors to substitute, if
they see fit, one or, at the most, two
outside of the first ticket proclaimed,
in the place of an equal number of
that ticket. In any event, we, believe that tho city's interests will be
conserved by the return of the whole,
or, at least, the great majority of the
first ticket. We would not answer for
this, if these men are ignored and a
selection made elsewhere. There
aro some of those who were nominated, rushed in at the very last
moment, whose sentiments and
leanings, although they have given
no adequate public expression before or since nomination, are pretty
well known, and in whose hands, to
put it mildly, the city's interests
would hardly be advanced. We
have no personal predilections or
prejudices for or against any of the
candidates, and no sympathy whatever for any clique or ring—if there
be such. What we desire is to seo
nine honest, progressive and sensible
men, who have no trace of moss on
their coat-collars, elected to direct
the city's affairs during a year which
must prove a ntost important—a critical—period in our history; a period
in which we shall cither take long
strides towards our rightful destiny,
or sadly and stupidly knock ourselves out of ten years' growth* if
indeed, the fate of Lot's wife does
not overtake us, and we be turned
into a lifeless and stationary pillar
of salt—or pyramid of moss—another dead monument to warn future
ages against "looking back" when
in looking abend and moving forward was tho only safety. Much
depends npon our choice of aldermen
at the olection now so near as to
which of these two pictures shall be
realized in our dostiny. The electors must make the choice. We
would suggest one test, at least,
other things being equal, that should
go far in determining who should
not, among the candidates, be returned to a seat in the council. Let
the electors inquire, who among the
sixteen seeking civic honors refused
to sign tho citizens' railway bond
(there are some that did refuse), and
govern themselves accordingly. Wo
do not wish to be understood as
holding that the few ratepayers that
refused to subscribe to the document
referred to were traitors to the city's
interests; but, in the absence of a
satisfactory explanation for their
refusal, we should certainly advise
that better and safer men, especially
when they are obtainable, should bo
placed in positions of responsibility
and trust with respect to our city's
affairs;
After ull the different accounts,
laterly so hopeful, concerning the
fate of Emin Bey and Stanley, it
seems not improbable that ono, and
perhaps both, have ere this fallen
into the hands of the Mahdi. In
spite of tlio return of Stanley to the
Aruwimi River, aftor seeing Emin
Bey, and of his messages regarding
the safety of that veteran, it is regarded as possible that Emin Bey
has been captured by the Mahdi, or
rather the Khalifa, as bis successor
is called. It will be remembered
that Osman Digma never claimed
that they had captured Stanley; he
only declared that Emin Bey and a
white traveller who was with him,
but whose name was unknown, had
been taken, Osman also enclosed
copies of letters, one of which was
from tho Khedive to Emin Bey, ordering him to retire with Stanley, a
letter whose existence was known
only to high officials, among whom
was General Grenfell, commander at
Suakim, who had, in fact, written
the letter for the Khedive. The
knowledge of this letter by the
Khalifa was sufficient proof that the
Mahdists had captured either the
bearers oi it or the person to whom
it had been sent The other letter,
a copy of whioh had been sent by
Osman Digma, was one from the
Khalifa's commander to the Khalifa,
reporting the capture of Emin Bey
and the white traveller. This letter
has been translated and published
and reads;
"In the name of the Great God, Ao,
This Is from the least among God's servants to hts muter and chief Khalifa,
Ac. We proceeded with tho steamers
and army. Beaohed the town Lado,
where Emin, Mudlr of Equator, to stay
ftur. Wc reached this place Sth Safer,
2806,   Wc must thank officers and men
who made this conquest easy to us before
our arrival.. They caught Emin and a
traveller staying with him, and put both
in chains. The officers and men refused
to go to Egypt with the Turks, Tewfik
sent Emin one of the travellers, whoso
name is Mr. Stanley. This Mr. Stanley
brought with him a letter from Tewfik
to Emin, dated Sth Jemal Aowal, 1304,
No. 81, telling Emin to como with Stanley, and gave the rest of the force tho
option to go to Cairo or remain. The
force refused the Turkish orders, and
gladly received us. I found a great deal
of feathers and ivory. I am sending
with this on board the "Bordain," tho
officers and chief clerk. I am also Bending tho letter which came to Emin from
Tewfik with the banners wo took from
tho Turks. I heard that thero is another
traveller who came to Emin, but I heard
that ho returned, I am looking out for
him. If he comes back again lam suro
to catch him. All tho chiefs of the province with tho inhabitants wero delighted
to ruceivo us, 1 have taken all the arms
and ammunition. Please return tho officers and chief clerk, whon you have seen
them and give the necessary instructions,
because they will be of great use to me."
An esteemed eastern exchange, commenting on the abovo letter, says:
It is not easy to discredit the statements contained in this letter in
view of facts which have been
learned since it was received and
which confirm its authenticity. At
the time this letter was received at
Suakim no nows of Stanley's having
reached Emin Bey had been received. Yet here it is stated that
he had reached him and the terms
of tho Khedive's letter to Emin Bey
sent by 8tanley are given. It appears not unlikely that that letter
created the suspicion that Emin Bey
intended to desert his people and
that this suspicion led to the revolt
of his hitherto faithful troops and
the delivery of the governor to the
Khalifa's commander. But the
strongest confirmation of all is the
statement of the Khalifa's commander that a white traveller who had
visited Emin Bey had returned and
the commander expected him to
come back to Emin Bey, in which
event he expected to catch him,
This coincides exactly with the news
concerning Stanley's movements, received by way of Zanzibar and the
Congo, since the above letter from
the Khalifa's commander was received through Osman Digma, The
Mahdi's followers have nover
been convicted of telling lies, and in
this instance they appear to have
confined themselves to facts, It is
not improbable, therefore, that unless
Stanley received news, of the capture
of Emin Bey and immediately returned to the Aruwimi that he nlso
has been, or will be, captured by the
Mahdi's forces.
Mr. John Magwood, Victoria ltoad,
writes: "Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure is a splendid medicine. My customers say they
never used anything so effectual, Good
results immediately follow its uac. I
know its value from personal experience,
Slaving beon troubled for 0 or 10 years
with Dyspepsia, and since using it digestion goes on without that depressing feeling so well known to dyspeptics, I havo
no hesitation in recommending it in any
case of Indigestion, Constipation, Heartburn, or troubles arising from a disordered
stomach."

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors of New Westminster City ;
Ladies and Gentlemen,—
At the request of a number of friends I
have consented to pluce my name In
nomination for the position of alderman
at tbe coming election, fully realizing the
importance and duties of the office. If
elected I will endeavor to tho host of my
ability, to place onr cits* ln the front rank
of the cities of B. O. The following important questions will have my careful
attention;
1, Railway.—1 will useevery legitimate
means In my power to bring to a successful termination the building ami com-
{iletlonof theSouthern Railroad,and will
reat liberally nny projected rnllway
which may wish to run into our city,
always carefully guarding tlio best Interests of the city. And It is my opinion
If wc are truo to ourselves and bury any
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder lo shoulder, we can mako New
Westminster the greatest rnllway center
nnd most Importnnt city between Seattle
und Alaska.
2. Water Supply.—I am In favor of tbe
city owning Us own watef works, for there
is a very large revenue to be derived from
this source, If properly conducted, and,.if
elected, I will at once take up this question
nnd deal with It on business principles,
Water rate debentures when Issued, bear
their own value and will not be ono dollar's tax on the ratepayers.
& Skwkiiaok.—This is one of the most
Important questions that the new council
will have to grapple with, and, as there Is
bound to bo a large emigration here this
year, ft behooves us to bo alive and got
our city well advanced so ns 16 keep away
those dread diseases wbloli wo so mercifully escaped last yoar. And I havo no
doubt if you ok-ct the right men nsohemo
can I)'1 got up whereby tho cily can bo
piop'-i-ly isewered, and tho revenue derived
from the stile of water be made to puy the
in'cri'si mul sinking fund for both wat or
works ami sewerage.
4. RntGKTS—Something must bo done
at once to open up all streets ln the city
so as to give workingmen and mechanics
noliurico to got to their lots and buildings,
and, If oleoted, I will give this subject my
careful attention and hearty support.
5. City Hall.—If any proposition Ib
brought forward for tho creation of a suitable city hall, nnd if tho finances of the
city will nllow It, I will glvo It my wurm-
est support.
0. Street Lighting.—I will favor tho
extending and Improving of our system of
street lighting, for there Is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. Park.—In order to mako tho coming
agricultural show a success wo must put a
portion of tho city park In a lit condition
with suitable buildings, etc. If elected I
will do my bent to make the grounds a
credit to tbo royal city, I am also in favor
of removing the unsightly stumps on
Albert Orescent nnd planting n few shade
trees to replace the stumps. Nature has
dono much for our city and it only wants
touching up a littlo to make it perfect.
8. Fonisic Libraky.—Thero Is no doubt
a new building Is wanted to replace the
delnplduted one now occupying a valuable lot, and thero is no doubt In my mind,
but that a suitable one could be erected
with stores underneath nnd library above;
and the rents from snld stores would more
tban pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leave a balance for keeping the library ln proper condition.
0. Manufacturers.—I will encourage
any manufacturers that contemplate starting business In this city, treating them
ln a liberal manner, and will use every
effort to show them the advantage of doing
business here. It Is well known that manufactures are the backbone of any city,
10. Communications.—I will urge upon
our representative tho necessity of the
Dominion government subsidizing a'dally
boat between here and Richmond and
nlso between here nnd Ladners Landing.
We must also get better connections with
the surrounding district.
11. Letter Boxes.—I will also endeavor
to have tho postal authorities supply and
put In place letter boxes ln tbo suburbs
of Iho city.
12.1 will also urge on our oity mombor
the necessity of having the local government place n sum of money ln this year's
estimates to put the North Arm road In a
tit condition for travel.
13. Street Naming and Numhering.—
If elected I will urge upon my colleagues the necessity of having onr streets
properly named and buildings numbered,
as Is always dono in woll*regulated cities.
In fact, nny project that may bo brought
up for advancing the Interests of tho city
will have ray»-ireful attention ond hearty
support
I remain,
Your Obedient Servant,
E. S. SCOULLAR.

A Thrilling Enoch Arden Cuso With
Joyous and Happy Ending.
A correspondent of the Atlanta Constilu-
(lo-ii hns recently bad tho pleasure of interviewing a Mr. James B. Whiten, who has
just returned from a thirty-years' stay in
the wild West. His experionco in frontier
life, wbloh is full of Indian skirmishes, bear
hunts, etc., is qaito interesting', but tbe
separation from bis wifo for a period of
thirty years, and what led to then* meeting,
Ib tho most interesting feature of tbo story.
In January, 1857, Mr. Wbitten was married to Miss Nancy Fowlor, a beautiful
young lady who resided near Westminstor,
S. 0. Young Whiten was very ambitious
to prepare Ids wife a commodious bomo,
both being vory poor at tho time of tbelr
marriage. Ho mado up his mind to try his
fortune in tho Wost The gold fever was
spreading through the West at that timo
liko a contagion, and Piko's Peak was the
objective point. Bo in tho following spring,
when winter's winds bad givon place to tho
breezes of spring, and before tho honeymoon had fairly waned, vows of everlasting
devotion and fidelity wero exchanged and
Mr, Whiten turned his face westward.
Aftor roughing it fivo years among desperadoes and Indians, and having gathered
considerable money, ho decided to return
to his Nancy, but not so to bo. The
civil war was then in full blast, and while
passing through the State of Texas Mr.
Whiten was called on for his services and
bad to respond. During his term many letters were written to the precious ono, but
no answer overcame Through nn acquaintance ho was informed that his wifo had refuged to parts unknown. In tho soldier's
camp, in tho Stateof Kansas, tho news of
Leo's surrender reached bho, Being destitute of means on which to travel, and having
learned through ab effort to establish a communication that tho one was dead for
whom it was his plcasuro to live, ho returned
to Colorado, there to spend tho remainder
of his days in tho solitude of the West.
"For twonty-twoyfiars,-' said Mr. Whiten,
" I wuudorad over 'the plains and prairies,
my thoughts ever carrying me back to the
pluco whero I kissed her good-bye." It
seems that his grief, instead of relaxing,
grew moro poignant. In tbe fall of 1887 he
met un old friend, Joe Steel, in Montana.
Mr. Steel told him that it was very likely
tlmthis wife waa still living; that he had a
faint recollection of a marriage in an adjoining county of a Mr. Southern to a Mrs.
Whiten, who had long since given up her
former husband for dead, and that Southern was (lend, so bo was informed, and that
the widow's post-office was Fort Madison, S.
C. Elated by theso glad tidings, Mr.
Whiten directed threo letters to Fort Madison, ono to Mrs. Southern, one to Mrs.
Whiten, nnd ono to Mr. —Whiten, a supposed son of his. Eagerly did bo wait for a
reply, but none came.
Tho letters remained in the offlce till one
day tho postmaster at that place was fixing
to make a legal disposition of them, when a
countryman, Mr, John Latham, chanced to
step in. Tho' postmaster" casually asked
Latham if bo knew any one by the name of
Nancy Southern or Nancy Whiten. Latham
happened to bo well acquainted with the
widow, and, by tho request of the postmaster, carried tho letters to Mra. Southern.
Sho answered him at once, explaining her
second marriage; that she had heard he was
dead, mul expressed groat anxiety to seo him.
Mr. AVhiten at onco took the train for Westminstor, ft. C, having been, by her letter, informed i bat sho lived at the same old place.
Arriving at Westminster, he proceeded tc
tbe old country homestead, where the part
inp t-iiik place. There underthowillowtree
In tbo yard, whero tbey parted thirty years
beforo, thoy met again. Timo and trouble
bad, of course, loft its impression upon both.
Btiki Mr. Whiten: "Though tho black curls
sho once woro woro streaked with gray, and
thu sparkling eye was dimmed, and tho tint
of the rose had loft tho cheek, yet sho was
as daar to mo as ever. Wo aro now living
together as happily as when we parted in
thu spring of 1857. My son camo to seo mo
last Christmas—tho first timo I ever suw
him—and we all hod a jolly time."
DANGER  IN  SAUERKRAUT.
A llnrrel of the Fragrant Stuff Explodes
and Nearly Kills a Man.
Another dangerous explosive bas been
discovered, says tho Cleveland Preu,  It is
sauerkraut  A Philadelphia man mado the
discovery.  Ho put a lot of frosh sauerkraut
In a barrel and then sealed it up tight. Somo
days Inter be wandered down collar to seo
how tho kraut was prospering.    Suddenly
tho family was startled b y a terrific rackot,
, and iho next moment tho man camo out of
■ the collar In a great hurry.    At least it is
* presumed that he was in a great hurry, bo-
causo ho did not wait to como up tho stairway, but camo right up through tho hardwood floor and nover stopped until he,bad
driven his head half way through tho ceiling. When ho finally dropped to tbo floor it
, was noticed tbat thoro was an irregular row
of barrel staves sticking out of hia side.
His   personal   appearanco   was    somewhat disccuroging   to bis best friends.
Thero was sauerkraut in his eyes and ears
| nnd whiskers.  In fact,  there appeared
i to be more or   less   sauerkraut   banging ont of every pore ot his akin, and he
seemed visibly agitated.   The  principal
' reason for believing that ho was agitated
>■ was because ho. yelled so loud tbat the
neighbor* dropped overy thing and came
rushing out of their' booses In a terrible
fright  After tbe caroitement had subsided
Buflli.-iently to make an investigation, it was
found tbat thero was a six-inch plastering
I of sauerkraut over tbe walls and every
thing else in tho cellar.  The barrel of
sauerkraut had exploded.  Since this littlo
incident took place, a German scientist,
wbo keeps a stand on the market aad outs
up nearly five hundred cabbages a day, haa
■ explained to a venturesome reporter that
when a cask ot kraut is sealed when very
frosh, there is suro to bo' more or Icbb
trouble. As the stuff ferments it swells,
and if It is in a tightly-corked barrel a cask
of gunpowder la hardly more dangerous.
, New discoveries are constantly revolutionizing old methods, and wo may yet live to
I seo tho war-like nations of the earth firing
sauorkraut at each other.

KING  OF  BUNKO-MEN.
Home of the  Successful Ventures of tho
Notorious Henry Weitbrook.
Engaging one of tbo most successful of
latter-day bunko-men ra conversation, a
Saratoga correspondent of the St. Louis
Ghiin.■ -Democrat asked him what were tho requisites for a successful bunko' operation.
Ho rophed:
" Three things are absolutely needful:
" 1. Tho bunko man must be dressed iu
tho height of fashion.
" 2. Ho must have unbounded faith in the
credulity and gullibility ot mankind.
" 3. Ho must be of genteel address and he
must have sublimo audacity.
" The rest is easy. I remember that'Hungry Joe,'who was finally ^sent up' byln-
spector Williams' of New York, used to
boast that ho sold a 'gold brick' to ex-Senator Gordon, of Georgia, and it is really
astonishing tbe number of victims a well-
dressed sharper can corral onto in a year."
A Philadelphia gentleman, wbo sat ou the
piazza of tbe hotel, spoke up and said: " I
can believe, sir, all you Bay, for McColgan,
who so long kept a pool room in Philadelphia, was bounced out of (3,000 by a young
man who met him in Cincinnati, and played
no nower racket tban the old one of being
IMr. Drexel's nephew."
My handsome acquaintance, who varied
tho monotony of his story by a visit to the
long bar room, remarked tbat be "didn't
think- thero was a 'professional' who would
stoop to so small an aet as to beat McColgan
out of 83,000, for a professional bunkoor always struck for higher game." Ho described with minuteness tbe success which
attended u celebrated crook who called him*
Belf Uyrusilaitaland, or Henry Wostbrook.
Putting his foot on tho piazza, and with, a
fifty-cent Flora dl Cuba between bis lips, ho
1 told tho story in tbeso words;
" Uyrus Muitalahd was the discarded son
of a great English manufacturer, who has
twico been a member of Parliament, and
who supplied his son's luxurious tastes as
long as that was possible. Cyrus was born
with'elegant desires, which nothing less
than Rothschild's wealth ' would gratify.
Crookedness of the crookedest kind caused
Cyrus to seek American shores.
" His first field of operations was Cape
May, whore he got away with a five thousand dollar cheok from a rich Baltimoroan,
who was so ashamed at being duped by ono
of his own, pretended, townsmen that ho
took care never to tell the tale himself. But
itho Jcrsoy authorities did not, take kindly
'to Muitaland or to his heathen Chineo
games. The police force could not bo induced 'to stand in with him,' as tho saying
gooB, aud ho was glad to get away from the
Cape.
Maitaland's favorite alias was Heury
Wostbrook. One cool morning in early July
tho register of tbo Cboptank House bore on
Its pages in a bold, clear, commercial band
tho name of'Henry WeBtbrook.' Ho brought
letters—thoy were in a good business band,
for ho had written tbem himself—from somo
of the leading people in Baltimore. He had
tho finest drag, pulled at a 2.40 gate on Atlantic avenuo by the finest chestnut colt iu
all Atlantic County. For a month West-
brook devoted himself to tho social graces
only, and happy the 'Cboptank' maiden that
had the afternoon 'call- for a drive behind
the high-stopping chestnut
-In August wealth and fashion hnd
poured into tho big city by tbo sea This
was Wostbrook's time. Ho rode loss in tho
afternoon, saying he was engaged in 'hanging somo valuable pictures bis uncle bud
sent him from Puris.' His first victim was
a Baptist deacon, who was accosted by namo,
'tho hotel register pf the Mansion disclosing
his identity. Ho examined Wostbrook's
'pictures' to his sorrow, and Beacon Rogers'
flrst hour -with blB swell friend cost bim
13,000 in cash and $4,000 in checks, ail of
which he paid rather tban be brought out as
a 'squealer' in tho publio prints. ,
"Still Weatbrook continued tho idol of tho
Cboptank' maids and dowagers, and a neb
ironmonger fell into his net uud left behind
#1,000 in cash and a chock for $5,000. Thu
iron man first took a hand at tbo game, ut
which the greenhorn is first allowed to
win, with a 'dead sure thing- tbat the next
timo ho puts up cash or check bo Is sure to
A not infrequent trick of Westbrook's
was to profess to tear up a large check aud
accept a small one, which always ended in
Mr. Bunko Man's keeping both checks,
which sooner or later turned up against
tbo victim's bank account, unlets tbo loser
stopped the checks.
The iron man did not worry ovor bis
91,000 loss, but the 16,000 cheek struck him
hard, and he telegraphed his bank in Philadelphia, ono of tbo strongest financial institutions in tho city, to stop payment.
This brought tho iron monarch's name into
tbo papers, and Weatbrook, oa tbo arrival
of tho ten a. m. train at Atlantic City, was
named as tho somewhat celebrated bunko
sharp of Baltimore and New York. Tlio
'Choptonk' maidens straightway out bim
dead, and tbe brightest of the fair bevy ot
beauty took an immediate train to Baltimore.
'But bold as aNumldiau lion and, strange
to say, entirely fearless of tbe eity authorities, Wostbrook determined to make a bold
dash for big gome before the city by the sea
got too hot to hold bim. At tno bathing
hour the quiet but well-dressed gontieinun
from Baltimore addressed Treasurer
Horner, of the P., B. & W. railroad, saying
be was an old friend of bis sons. Tho treasurer, a grand old man of seventy summers,
waa delighted with the frablniess of bis
now-made friend, and willingly accompanied bim to bis picture gallery on Atlantic avenue.
"By some subtle alchemy which tbe
young often exorcise over the old, tho
treasurer tried his luck, and went out; of
the 'picture- gallery leaving (200 cash in
Westbrook's pocket and a check for $7,000.
"The treasurer's son got wind of it, stopped
tbe cheek, and after a lively lawsuit, iu
which Lawyer Page and Thomas H. Dlohl
defended agonal tho check, tbo bunko mou
gave up the fight and gavp up tho check.
"Maitaland drifted, like so many of bis
class, to New York, and falling Into a bad
streak of luck, was found ono morning at
tbo Grand Central Hotel with the gas
turned on—and life's fitful fever was
over." __^___ .

The Louiso was called in at Plumper's Pnss un her trip frum Westminster
yesterdhy afternoon to tako on board J.
Robson, son of Mr. liobson, Mnyno Island, wlto hnd liis arm broken. The

of a cart which he was drawing, tho
arm being fractured above tbe elbow.
The arm was not set until after the
yonng man's arrival at St, Joseph Hospital, to which institution he was taken
last evening. —Colonist, Monday.
Another Brick Black.
Mr. Sheriff Aamitrong . ia leading
the way in buildiug operations for
1889. He has instructed Mr. R. W.
King, architect, to draw up plans nnd
specifications for a lino brick block
which will be erected on Columbia
street adjoining the Armstrong Block.
Tlie building will have n frontage of
40 feet nnd a depth of 02 foot, nnd
will bo two storioa high with a spacious
basement. Tbo cost of tbo biiildin-*
will be from 010,000 to $12,000. As
an instance of the demand for this
class of buildings it is worthy of noto
that Mr. ArmsLrong has nlrendy lensod
tlio ground flat**. Ae son ae fine
woather sots in operations will be commenced.
A large Deal.
A syndicate composed of Messrs.
Hunnebird, Glover and Phipps, of
Wisconsin, and Mncauloy, of Victoria,
havo just completed the purchase of
the Chemainus sawmill and the timber
lands connected therewith, from Croft
& Angus, the owners. At the samo
timo tho syndicate has bought from
tbo E. & N. Railway Co. 100,000
acres of land at a price not mado public, Tlio entire purchase will amount
to about 9700,000, and is one of the
most important ever made uti Vancouver Island, or for thnt niatter in the
province. The purchasers nre wealthy
and will enlarge the Chemainus mill
nnd build two new ones. Posessiou
will bo taken on tho 1st of March.
The sale of Island Railway lands is the
largest yet made, and if the price were
stated we believe it would be seen that
these lands are likely to bring their
owners large fortunes iu the near future. The transaction means the introduction of a large amount of capital
and the establishment of lumber-manufacturing on a much larger scale than
ovor before undertaken in tbe province,

Yesterday a Chinaman named Char*
ley wns murderously assaulted by two
of his countrymen, named Lee Young
Sick and Lee Yuen. It appean Charley had been gambling with these men
some days ago and had been fleeced of
all his spare cash and an I. O. U, for
a small amount. Yesterday in n house
in Chinatown tbe men met and Char*
ley was ordered to hand over the
amount owing. This ho declared he
could not do, not having tlie money.
Lee Sick and Lee Yuen thon assaulted
him and inflicted several cuts on the
headend an ugly bruise on the left
shoulder. One of the assailants used
a murderous looking skull-cracker,
which was produced in court this
morning. It is made of brass and
weighs over a pound, fits tightly on the
knuckles and has a large knob over the
centre. With this weapon it would
be a simple matter to crush a man's
skull at a blow. Constable Carty arrested the men and they appeared at
the police court this morning when
Mr. Atkinson adjourned the case till
to-morrow to securo additional evidence ugainst the prisoners. Tlio caso
will be pushed to the utmost limits of

A Citizen Abroad.
Our cuterpmingfellow-cilizen, Mr.
Wm. Reidt, is, it would appenr, mak-
inc.a tour of the Sound, nnd has extended his peregrinations na far ns
Portland, Or., from which city he
dntes the following letter on Jan. 11th,
1889. Tho letter is a complete surprise to us, and overflows with patriot-
Urn and contains besides some interesting information. We give it below
in full:
Kmtor Coli'miiun.— I have come to
the conclusion to let you know some*
thing about my trip, which I have been
through as fnr as Portland, Oregon, and
wish you would favor mo in printing
this letter in The Colombian. I remember a good many of my fellow-citizens' up
there aro always talking so much of our
"little burg." If they wero only on the
American side, now. I will tell you
something of - Port Townsend, which I
haven't Been for two years aud a half.
All the improvements I 'tnve scon since
that time in the prin •i**nl portion of the
town are about iour now brick blocks.
Talk about your streets in WeatmlnBter.
The only business street in this town ll
mostly covered with about fourteen
inches of mud. Mr, Cantield and I were
watching two itrangen climbing up the
heaven ladder to the upper portion of
the town. They kept going up till they
got about tho middle, then they stopped
and looked backward, thinking at the
same timo thnt they could not stand the
pressure through. They then came down
and tol'l us that they hod counted fifty-
three steps already, so they thought the
safest way would be to turn back. They
told us they did-not think it had half the
population of Westminster. Talking to
some of the citizens ti ey told us they
were selling lots on the Fettigrove estate,
one and five-eighths u a mile from the
businesa street, for from six to nine hundred dollars a lot. I hid a long talk
with Senator Cantield. He told me he
wen going to Whatcom the same night.
I asked him how the Southern Railway
was going on. He told me that they had
put an injunction some time ago on the
road, but he did not know it until two
days beforo ho started for Westminster
with the plans for the railroad ferry. He
says to me that they were going to push
tho road through as soon as possible and
everything according to how we need it.
He says there was some of them not satisfied the way tho road was going to be
built and paid for, and he thought there
would be some of them then that would
rot be satisfied, because they did not
want the road in the lirst place. And
let mo tell you what I found out about
the "man of straw." Mr. Calhoun and
several others from Port Townsend told
me that ho. was worth money, hud lots of
barking, and a good deal of influence, I
found out afterwards in Seattle, through
Governor Sr-uire and others, the same
story; so I came to-the conclusion to give
up trying to find out about the "man of
straw." 1 thought at tho same time, if
I was as well fixed ns Canfield I would
}iut Westminster, iu two years, as the
iead town of B.C, ■which it will lie yet.
I remain,
Yours, Ac,

I shall endeavor to glvo all questions
