Oar special dispatch from Vic-
tori* yesterday, referring to the
nominations which took place yesterday in that city for mayor and
aldermen, stated that a public meeting would be held to-night for the
discussion of questions at issue.
We hope to see ft good rousing public meeting in this city during the
W'-ek, at which all tho candidates
will be present. And the ratepayers should bo prepared to .subject them to a lively cross-questioning, and, if possible, get at tho
"true inwardness" of their intentions if elected.
Tho story in our despatches yesterday, if true, about a clever Irish-
American fooling thR Times out of
$500, on the strength of the infor-
ma^qji communicated to tho managers of tho great London "Thunderer" that ho (the Irish-American
aforesaid) knew of two Irishmen
who would make valuable witnesses
in the -ZYf-'es-Parnell ease, is, perhaps, the most amusing incident of
the whole affair to date, and illustrates very forcibly the feverish
eagerness of tho Thm management
to catch at straws in the hope of
bolstering up what it must now see
to be a desperate cause.
As wili have been seen by our
Victoria despatches yesterday, an
injunction has been granted restraining the civic authorities of
Vancouver from further interfering
with the steamers Islander and
Premier, and, also, the 0. P. N. Co.
has instituted proceedings against
Vancouver to recover 850,000 dam
ages. It has been expected that
such a suit would be entered, and
the progress of the case will be
watched with general interest, It
is very difficult to forecast the
result. Against Vancouver, we
might say, it is stated that the city
oxceeded its authority by preventing passengers from landing on the
wharves, which are outside the city
limits. The whole affair will be a
hue picnic for the lawyers, and the
foremost talent in the province will
undoubtedly be engaged,

America is down ou Sunday
papers, not without good reason.
It says, lutoly : What are Sunday
newspapers good for, anyhow ? It
has long been a favorite delusion of
u large class of merchants that they
are valuable advertising mediums.
Now comes John Wanamaker, the
great merchant prince of America,
who spends $5,000 a week advertising, and puys a man $1,000 a
ttftnnrtd loblfafteY"1t; and nays :
"I advertiso in every issue, except
Sunday, of every daily newspaper
in Philadelphia." Marshall Field,
whose business rivals, if it does not
surpass, that of Wanamaker's, never
advertises in the Sunday issues of
the Chicago newspapers, because he
does not believe in advertising on a
day when his store is olosed. And
so we have the greatest two dry-
gonds merchants in America
repudiating the Sunday newspaper
as an advertising medium. If it is
not good for this purpose, what on
earth is it good for.
The statement that a 12 by 12
inch beam built up of 2 by 12 planks
spiked together is stronger than a
12 by 12 inch solid timber will
strike u novice us exceedingly
absurd, says the Mississippi Valley
Lumberman. Every millwright and
curpi-nter knows it also, whether he
ever tested it by actual experience
or not. Tho inexperienced will fail
to see why a timber will be stronger
simply because the adjacent vertical
longitudinal portions of the wood
have been separated by a saw ; and
if this were the only thing about it,
it would not be stronger, but the
old principle that a chain is no
stronger than its weakest link comes
into consideration. Most timbers
have knots in them or are sawed at
an angle to the grain, so that they
will split diagonally under a comparatively light load. In a built-up
timber no largo knots can wcrtkon
the beam, except so much of it as is
composed of one plank, and planks
whoso grain runs diagonally will be
strengthened by the other pieces
spiked to it.
Says an exchange: Tho Adirondack guide and murderer, Oharles
Brown, must be enduring punishment worse than death itself. The
story of his crime reads like a page
from k sensational romance. On
tho 23rd June last a man named
Ucorge Berkeley, at Saranac village,
Franklin county, refused to sell
liquor to Brown, who thereupon
secured n Winchester rifle and shot
tlio hotel keeper while the latter
was unaware of his danger. Brown
lied to the forest with his rifle, and
liit!* traversed its gloomy shades for
scores of miles to avoid arrest. He
has been seen many limes, when ho
was compelled to ask for food or
supplies, but no ono had been bold
enough to attempt his detention.
So he wanders with his great crime
pressing upon him, determined to
die beforo surrendering himself.
Ho is so marked by a scar on his
under-lip that every ono in the
Adirondack region could recognize
him instantly. Snow has oovered
iho ground since the beginning of
Novembor, and no one knows
whether he is dead or alive, The
man's sufferings in his lonely vigils
in tho wilderness must be terrible,
and it would not bo surprising to
hear that ho has onded them either
by committing suicide or delivering
himself up to justice,
EDMUND YATES1 CABLE.
London, Jan. 15.—The Prince of
Wales and the prime minister hare
been in correspondence regarding the
position of the eldest son of the heir
apparent, hut what negotiations have
been made no one quite knows.
When parliament meets it is expected
the announcement will be made thnt
at soo a as Prince Albert Victor decides
to marry application will be made to
parliament for an allowance for him.
EMPEROR FREDERICK'** WILI.
Lord Cross waa summoned to Osborne laat Tuesday for a private conference with the queen and Empress
Frederick concerning the disposal of
that part of the Emperor Frederick's
fortune which was left to the trustees,
Her Majesty, the King of the Belgians and the Duke of Saxe-Oobourg-
Ootha, for the benefit of the widow
and younger children, with special
directioni that it be invested in British
securities. The lace emperor's fortune waa totally derived from his
father, Kaiser William, and he left a
large sum to the empress absolutely,
out of which her imperial majesty haa
expended about £40,000 for a residence and estate at Kronberg on the
Taunus.
THE ESTIMATES.
The ministry have decided the estimates shall be taken up as booh as
parliament meet*. Nothing can be
easier than to come to suoh a decision,
but a good deal is going on just now
that may just a little interfere with its
being carried uut.
JAILED MEMBERS.
It "-flema highly probable that before
parliament meets Messrs. \V. O'Brien,
Condon, Cox, Tanner, Long, Jno.
O'Connor and Sheehy will be iu jail,
while Messrs. E. Harrington and
Finuca 10 are already there. Mr.
Smith will resume his position as
leader of the house and this will be in
accordance with the general desire of
hia party. I hear Mr. Smith's health
is fully restored,
DISEASE AMONG SALMON.

FIELD   ARTILLERY.
The Italian government has ordered
250 new field pieces from Krupp, a.
Essen, and they are to bo deliovered
at Milan in April.
THE FRENCH VINTAGE,
The French vintage last year was n
larger one than there has been since
1880. But it is rather disappointing
to note that the yield was largest in
southern districts which produce the
common wine of the country, while
tbe Burgundy nud Champagne districts
were very badly favored both aa regards quantity and quality of their
vintage. It is true that the Bordeaux
vintage ia very muoh larger than it haa
beeu for somo time, but conaidering
that more than 150,000,000 gallons of
wine were imported into that part of
France from Spain the prospect of
getting pure claret, aa we call Bordeaux wiuud, is not much improved.
France has, since the appearance of
Phylloxera, become a wine improving
counUy ; for while fourteen or fifteen
yeara ugo the imports wero only 14,-
CC3,0"3 gallons and the exports 75,-
00,00 gallons, tho former exceed
250,0 ),CO gallons while exports
dropped lait year to less tlinn 50,000,*
000 gallons,
MR, AND MRS, CHAMBERLAIN*.
Mr. and Mis Chnmberhin have

are to be guests of the Chamberlains at
Highbury during their visit to Birmingham next week. They are to
arrive there on tho morning of Friday
tho 25th inst., in the evening Lord
Wolseley will deliver an address in
the town hall ns president of the Hnr*
borne Institute. Mr, Chamberlain's
visit to Dundee next month bids fair
to be a brilliant success.
HARRINGTON  RELEASED.
Dublin, Juu. 15.—A writ of habeas
corpus has beon grantrd conditionally
for the release of Edward Harrington,
editor of the Kerry Sentinel, imprison*
ed for publishing in his paper notices
of meetings of the supposed branches

granted on the ground that Harrington's certificate of publication under

case will be argued Friday.

Tacoma wants the earth and  all
that in it i..   It believes that it has
floored Seattle, is making arrangements to knock out  Portland,  and
now expect, to side-track Vancouver and—juat think of the cheek!
—be the saltwater terminus of the
Oanadian Pacific  Railway.     The
Tacoma ledger of the 10th inst. says
that   " for several days the rumor
hu been afloat that Tacoma is to be
made the terminus of the Oanadian
Pacifio Railway."   Says the same
authorityloftily aud   disdainfully:
"It ia a well known fact that  the
high officials ol that corporation have
long  been exceedingly dissatisfied
with their terminus on the straits of
Georgia."   Just fancy—"the straits
of Georgia" indeed!   The impudent
Ledger  man don't  even know, or
pretends he don't, where Vancouver
u  situated—on  one  of the most
noble   harbors of  the  world—on
Burrard Inlet.   Tlie Ledger thus
continues in tho same lofty and confident strain:   "Considerations of an
imperative character   have urged
the O.P.R to push their connections
to nme desirable point on American
noil, where business  could  be  ex-
changed with the great transcontinental lines of this country as well aa
with the lines connecting with our
southern coast and Mexico.   Tacoma is the natural point of junotion,
and if any is chosen, it will certainly be the one.   The rumor referred
to is  positive in character.   It it
elaimed  that  the  officials of  the
Northern Pacific and the  Oanadian
Pacific, will hold a conference in thia
city on the 15th of January to  ascertain if satisfactory arrangement!
can be nude to accomplish the purpose  in   view.     The   officials  of
the  Northern   Pacific   at this city
(Tacoinn) neither affirm   nor  deny
the truth of the report.   They  say
that they have no knowledge whatever on the subject; that the'  lioad-
?muter, of the company are in St.
Paul,   and  that   it would be quite
possible for the rumor to  be  true,
and  yet nothing be known of the
nutter at the offices  at  this  city.
The news, they say, would  have to
originate at St, Paul.   The fact that
auch  a  rumor ahould have gained
auch a general circulation, indicates
that it  must  have had a basis to
start from.   It  is  very  probable
that the Canadian Pacific has  been
carrying on some kind of a negotiation  which  originated  tbe story.
Wel| informed businesa men  have
long considered  it more than probable that Tacoma would eventually
become  tlie terminus of the Oanadian  route.   Our city  would  be
vastly benefitted  by the faot, and
the Canadian corporation would secure valuable advantages also.   In
the course of a week something
definite   may   be   known."    The
Ledger is probably indulging above
in a little quiet booming, to offset
the itory that Seattle ia to  become
a terminus of the O.P.R., though iti
rumored connection with that  road
via the  Minion.    Al  has  been
stated in this paper before, Vancouver cannot afford to look with favor
upon  the proposed tapping of the
O.P.R at the Mission by an American line terminating at either Seattle
or Tacoma; for, although we do not
believe  that either of those placet
would thus become if. facto the terminus of the O.P.R, it ii almoit
certain that Vancouver would  low
trade,  instead  of gain it, by the
transaction.   We have hardly given
credit  to  the itory of tho Minion
connection, believing that the 0. P.
R would not so jeopardise  Vancouver's interests.  The Ledger, however, lays that that corporation has
"long been exceedingly dissatisfied
with thoir terminus on the straiti of
Georgia."   These are itrong word.,
bnt there may be very little in them.
"In the course of a week something
definite may be known," concludes
the Ledger.   In the  meantime  we
can all hold our breaths and  wait,
and refrain from speculating in town
lots till we see where the aalt water
terminus ii actually going to be.
wind whistled and tore in mad confusion.   The storm   clouds   grow
heavier and louder roared the wind.
In  tlie  western sky a storm waa
seen approaching with a thundering
noise. The swath it cut wai narrow,
about 200 ft., but tho effect waa terrible. Persons residing along the track
of the storm say tbey saw the first
signs of danger in a funnel-shaped
maelitorm of wind and debris,which
seemed to gather up everything
within its reach and cast it right
and left.   The track of this destructive element was not more than 200
feet wide, but the execution that it
did was terrible.   Roofs were lifted
off of great blocks as if they  had
been paper, buildings crumbled into
brick heaps, railroad cars  blown off
the  track and rent into splinters,
and the loss of life was supplemented
by the large  numbers of horribly
wounded.   Directly in tbe  storm's
path, at the corner of Twelfth and
Marion streets, stood the  Reading
silk mill.    It  was  here  that the
storm accomplished its most dreadful
work.   In the  building  175  girls
were working.   The building was a
huge structure,  most substantially
built, four Btories high and basement.
It oocupied an entire block, the size
of the building itself  being nearly
300 feet in length and  about  150
wide.    It  was  surmounted  by a
massive tower fully 100  feet  from
the ground.    The   funnel-shaped
cloud  struck   the   building in tho
center on the broadest side,  whioh
faced west.   It fell to pieces as  if
composed of so many building blocks.
Nearly 200 human beings went down
in the wreck.   Tbe walls gave way
and the floors fell down, one on top
of the other, and carried their great
mail of human beings to the bottom.
The bricks  were piled up in the
greatest confusion, while amid  the
hurricane  and   whistling, rushing,
roaring wind terrible cries for succor were sent up to heaven.   It was
a moment that tried  men's souls,
and simultaneously with the fall of
tbe building came awful  cries  for
relief.   Girls with blackened  faces,
bruised and broken limbs,  clothing
tattered and  torn,  dragged themselves from the ruins.   From seventy-five to  one  hundred escaped or
were dragged out by friends. These,
of course, worked on the uppor floors
and were thrown near tho top of the
debris.   At some places bricks were
piled twenty feet deep, and underneath were lying human bodies  by
the  score.   About   250  girls and
young women were usually employed
in the mill, but at 1 p.m., about  80
were relieved for the day,  and ' ro
turned    to   their    homes    before
the    storm    came   on.    As    before stated, about 175 wero  in   the
building when it went down, and of
these  nearly   100 were rescued by
friends  or dragged themselves out
immediately after tbo accident.    It
is stated that the machinery in the
silk factory saved many from being
crushed to death, as a  space  was
thus preserved between the falling
floors.    However, it is estimated
that between sixty and eighty were
killed, besides  those  wounded,   in
the Reading silk factory alone.   As
our readers are aware, the area in
the United States subject  to  the
awful  visitation  of the oyclone is
comparatively large, while we have
yet to hear of a genuine cyclone in
any part of the Dominion, although
tornadoes and blizzards may occassional^  visit some sections,  but
never here.

trees to replace the stumps. Nature has

8. Public Library,—Tbero Is no doubt
a new building la wanted to replace tbo
delapidatcd one now occupying si valuable lot,and there Is no doubt In my mind,
but that n suitable ono could be erected
with stores undernoath and library above;

THE rFHUNDER-STOML
An Explanation of Its Origin and
Development.
A witer in tho St. Louis Post-Dispatch,
Bpoaklag ot tho dovolopmont ot thunderstorms, calls thorn immenso Loydon jars In
the sky, and supports his statement by ox-
plaining their origin. Lot ub, ho says, flrst
observe an average summer thunder-storm
as it is developing ovor us. The ntmosphero
is sultry and oppreBsivo. Tho heat of tho
sun seems moro penetrating than usual. It
wo look toward tho sky wo shall bo likely to
note a lack of its usual transparency.
Small inky-looking clouds will bo soon having an indistinct and ragged outline Tho
clouds will incroaso in volume Small ones
will unite, forming larger bodies, and theso
will rapidly grow in density and overcast
tho Blty. The heavy cloud masses will bo
scon to approach nearer tho earth. Occasionally somo section of tho cloud mass will
bo illuminated by lightning, and aftor an interval of twenty or thirty seconds a faint
rumbling ttiundor will becomo audiblo. As
tho storm develops nud draws nearer the
Intorvals botwocn the flashes of lightning
and reports of thundor will shorten, until,
when the storm is at its height, many flushes
will bo followed almost immediately by
doafening crashes of thunder. By this timo
probably a heavy rain will be falling, varying at intorvals in intensity. The storm will
continue from one-half to about two or
three hours, wlieu the lightning and thunder will diminish and disappear, and tho
rain-fall wlllgraduallycease. Whon wo now
venture out wo shall encounter u cool, refreshing breeze, which will at once have an
invigorating effect upon us. Tho rays of
the sun breaking hero and therethrough
tho clouds and falling upon tho rain-drops
on tho grass and trees, will give to tho surroundings tho most plcusing aspect.
Having briefly described the thunderstorm as wo all see it, let us now investigate what wo have scon. Whilo the thunder-storm was developing tho air wns oppressive aud wo felt languid and uncomfortable. This was duo to tho great amount of
moisture with which tho air was saturated,
togothor with tho high temperature. The
wr.rm, vapor-laden ntmosphero, expanded
by heat and risinc to u higher altitude, was
replaced by cooler air flowing iu under it.
This accounts for tho refreshing atmosphere
which we experienced. Tho great amount
of moisture in tho air during tlio dovolopmont of the storm accounts for tho lack of
Its transparency, and also for tho indistinct
outlines of tho clouds. As tho uprising air
reached a higher altitudo and encountered
cooler winds, its moisture was condensed
and wo saw it in tho form of clouds, which,
as tho action continued, precipitated raiu.
Tho most difficult phenomena to explain,
but which are at tho samo time the most interesting, aro tho lightning and thundor,
Nothing definite was known about lightning untilBenjariiu Franklin demonstrated
by moans of his well-known kite experiment,, that lightning and electricity aro
identical. His experiment Is explained iu
the following letter written by him on October 10,1762:
■ "Make a small cross of light sticks of cedar, tbe arms so long as to reach to tho four
* corners of a largo, thin silk hundkorehiof
when extended. Tie tho corners of tho
handkerchief to tho extremities of tho
cross, so you have tlio body of n kite, which,
being property accommodated with a tail,
loop and string,**-!!! riso in the uir like thoso
made of paper, but, being mode of silk, is
tatter to boar tho wet and wind of a thunder-
gust without tearing. To tho top of the upright stick of the cross is to bo flxod a very,
sharp pointed wire rising a foot or moro
above the wood. To the ond of tho twine,
next the hand, is to be tied a silk ribbon,
pnd where tho silk and twlno join, a key
i may bo fastened. This kite is to ho ruiscd
when a thunder-gust appears to bo coming
on, and tho person who holds tho string
must itand within a door or window, or under some cover, so that the Bilk ribbon may
not bo wet, and oare must ho taken that tlie
twine does not touch the frame of tho door
or window. As soon as tho thunder-clouds
come ovor the kite the pointed wire will
draw tho electric fire from them, and tho
kite, with all tho twine, will be electrified,
and tho loose filaments of tho twino will
stand out overy way and be attracted by an
approaching finger, and when tho rain has
wet the kite and twino you will find tho
electric firo stream out plentifully from tho
key on tho approach of your knuckle.''
Having found that lightning and electricity aro tho same, wo must endeavor to
explain in what manner this atmospheric
electricity is generated. Many theories
havo been advanced in explanation of this
question, and, while littlo is positively
known, the, theory, generally'accepted iB
that tjio electricity is generated by tho friction of tho;ilquid partiolos of vapor in tho
air against each othor, against tho earth
, and against the air. Some havo claimed
that evaporation is tho causo, but experiments havo shown that wherever electricity
was generated by .evaporation friction was
tho real oause.
Lightning flashes appear In different
forms. Zlgtiag lightning, (ts its name Implies, is a lqng irregular lino of light, and
Is the most comvnolx form. Ball lightning
is a round hall of lire, moving bo slowly
that tbe oyo can follow it, and explodes
with aloud report. Bheet lightning is a
diffused glare of light, which Illumines tho
edge or surface of a cloud. Zig-iag lightning ts caused by the discharge of a large
quantity of electricity passing through tho
uir, which, ou account of its resistance, bo-
comes compressed at various points and
turns the current aside. Tho zig-zag path Ib
sometimes four or five miles in length.
The phenomenon of ball lightning has
never been satisfactorily explained, although it is known to be the result of an
extremely intense discharge of electricity.
Sheet lightning Ib the reflection of zig-zag
lightning through the cloud mass, aud may,
sometimes, be duo also to tho passage of
electricity thin particle to poptiflo ot A
cloud, ivhipti U an Imporfodt conductor.
Occasionally, on a Bummer evening, lightning Is obierved near tho horizon, evon
when no clouds mny be visible. Thia is tho
reflection ot lightning from clouds below
the horizon, or too distant for tho thunder
to be audible. This form of lightning Ib
sometimes called heat lightning.
The actual duration ot tho illumination
produced by a lightning flash has beou
shown by praotlqaf demonstration lo bo less
thfin the ten*thobBh(idth part of a second.
To tho oyo it ■eetmi much longer, bocauso
the Hash loavoS its impression ou the retina
for somo time.
Thunder is produced by tho clashing of
particles of air displaced by tho oloctrical
discharge, and hetico always at tho samo
Uislant that lightning ts produced. The apparent interval between tho flash and tbo
report is duo to, tho difference In velocity
between light and sound." Light travels nt
tho rato of 185,000 miles per second, hence
wo see tlie Hash of lightning at almost the
same Instant that tho discborgo takes place.
But such in not tho case with Bound. Hound
in uir travels at tho rate of 1,120 feot per
second. It therefore requires some timo
for tho sound of thundor to reach the entailer tho discharge and report havo actually
taken place. The irregular rumbling sound,
as welt as tho duration of thundor, fs duo to
tho varying distances from which tho
sounds como while tho flash passes along its
courso. The rumbling sound Ib also duo to
tho effect of echoes. By noting tho interval of time between the lightning flash and
the beginning of tho thundor, wo can, with
an ordinary timepiece, roughly estimate tho
distance of tho thundor-cloud. For instance,
as sound travels at tbo rate 1,120 feet,
or about onc-flfth of a mile por Becond, if
wo look at tho timo-pieco tho Instant wo
perceive it flash, and find that tho report
follows, aay ten seconds later, wo know
that tho cloud is about two miles distant.
QUEEN  ALIQUIPPA.
An Indian Woman Who Wan Once Visited
by tioorgo Washington.
Probably few of tho hundreds of Pitts
burgh peoplo who hear the name of -*A"li-
quippa" pronounced, and road it in tho
newspapers almost daily, aro aware of tho
historical origin of tho word, says the Pittsburgh Dispatch. Yet, Allquippa was a numb
fnmoun throughout this ontiro region Hourly n century and a half ago, long beforo
Pittsburgh existed, and oven before Fort
Pitt was located at the "Forks of the
Ohio."
Allquippa was an Indian Queen, and a
woman of wide influence among her people.
Tho Father of his Country was once her
guest, und his journal gives a somewhat
amusing account of the visit .which ho paid
to her. It happoued lu this way': ' Washington, oft his roturn from his trip to Lo
Bamf iu December, 1753, was accompaniod
by the noted backwoodsman, Christopher
Gist,who had also acted as his guide during
tho (journey to tho French commatidnnt's
headquarters. Olst had settled during the
previous summer at a placo now known as
Mount Braddock, in Fayette County, Tho
ai'terwnrci-distingulshed Virginian and his
companion encountered many diffieultles
and endured many hardships during thoir
journey. On tho night of Decomhor 20,
just nt dusk, they attempted to cross tho
Allcgheney river on an improvised raft,
abovo an Indian vlllago known as Shan*
nopin-B town. Tho result was a nor-
row escape from drowning for both.
Thoy, howover, succeeded in getting
to nn islnnd, whero thoy passed tho night,
Buffering bitterly from tho cold ln their wot
garments. Tho next day they managed to
get from tho island to the main land, aided
by ice which had formed during the night,
and inado thoir way to tho cabin of a man
named Frnzier, nn Indian trador, who lived
at tho mouth of Turtle creek. Washington
says in his journal:
"As wo intended to tako horses here, and
it required somo timo to find them, 1 went
up three miles to tho mouth of tho Youghi-
oghony to visit Queen Allquippa, who hnd
expressed great concern that wo passed her
in going to the fort. I mado her a present
of a match-coat and a bottlo of rum, which
luttcr was thoughtjnuch tho bettor present
of tho two. Tuesday, January 1, we loft
Mr. Frazior's nnd arrived at Mr. Gist's, at
Monongnhcln, January 2, whero I bought a
horso and saddle."
Rome years prior to hor location on Turtle
■eel: Queen AHqulppa lived at a point near
Dallas, In Bedford County. "Aliquippa's
town" is mentioned in a patent ton pieco
of land locnted thero, and may have been
an Indian village of considerable Importance. A score or more of Indiou graves
marked tho stto of tho town at tho time the
region wns aettlod by the' white's. They
wero mound-shaped and covered |jy heaps
of stone. Somo of thorn were dug open,
and bones, beads, pipes and Indian weapons
found therein.
HINTS  ON  DRESSING.
Views of a Man Who nolle voi That "tho
Apparol Oft Proclaim*, tho Man."
I heard n successful eity man of business talk to his fifteen-year-old son about
masculine dross one ovemng lately, writes
tho Chicago Journal's sido-walk stroller, and
thoro wero soveral things said worth remembering. '• I am older than you, my
son," ho began, " and carry in my old
head a groat deal of experience whtcli I
wish I could convoy te yours for your own
good, uud what I havo learned about how
to dress successfully is ono of them. It
took mo n long timo to loam that it is
bard for n fop to gain tho respect or confidence of hi3 fellow-men who aro not fops;
bat i liavo loamed it in timo te save myself
and lay down n few of tho rules of dress
for u man who would win in tho world. In
tho flrst place, business men liko young
men who dress modestly. Thoy don't liko
t showy' youths. In tho next place, tho
average political loader andvoter'has no
uso for tlio dressy citizen who ventures
into politics. Very plain and simple clothes aro at a great premium in
politics. Silk hats, silk stockings and
silk underwear havo to ho 'worn very
carefully, if at all, by a political candidate. Tho silk hat will go through, all
fight on ono condition—provided it is never
brushed at all, or, If brushed, brushed tho
>vrong way, So important is this matter
of dress and its effect on tho masses that I
Would lay down for you a fow. simple rules
of dross which If followed will bear mo out
In tho assertion that in every lino of lifo
worth entering thoy will provo a groat aid
to popularity and success. First, never be
without ono good black sult-for Sundav,
weddings, receptions and funerals. This
suit whon no lougor now can bo worn for a
day suit in school or business. Second, always own ono good, dark-bluo suit for business, pleasure or genoral occasions nut
noted under the firBt head. It may also be
worn hy night, when It will look like nbltu-k
businoss suit This is all in thu line of
suits nocossary for a man except u full-
dress or Prince Albert for souio extraordinary party, which I trust will not como vory
often in your case. You can in this way nl-

Since tho Rev. Thos. Baldwin's
pastorate of Olivet Baptist Churoh, in
this city, began, about six months ago,
he has given the hand of fellowship to
51 new members, and 10 more havo
signified their intention of joining that
body. Such figures as these, and those
-that we have published in connection
with some other of the churches, not
only show that our population is increasing, ns a considerable number aro
admitted by certificate, but also speak
well for the class that are attracted to
this city to make their homes amongst
us.
The city council last night decided
to have the auditor's report for 1868
printed in pamphlet form, instead of
published in the newspapers ns in former years, considering that by so doing
tho cost would be less. Probably tlio
cost will bo less, but the council Bhould
remember that newspapers are of
much value to this city and that it is a
most unpatriotic nnd .small-spirited
proceeding to cut off in this way a portion of their just resources. Tho on-
coura-'umciH to the press is small when
a corporation begins such starvation
tactics.

Utterly False.
The Vancouver World stretches its
imagination considerably and distorts
the truth rather more than necessary
when it says the Westminster militia
were called out to prevent S. S. Islander landing her passengers at Westminster. This assertion so ridiculously and utterly false had not tho slightest foundation in fact, and that such
arrant nonsense should be given to (he
public as truth is a proceeding which
does not reflect credit  on  a  journal
Erofessing the high standard assumed

The latest newa from Perry Creek is
that the new tunnel has been run 35
fdet further tban tho old tunnel, some
550 feet in all. In olearing off the bed*

hoisted up to and run out through the
upper or old tunnel, whioh mado the
work proceed rather slowly. When
bedrock was reached, it was found to
bo as smooth as glass and sloping.

Wauled a CiooU Meal.
On Sunday a Chinaman was taken
to the lockup for acting in a strange
and unusual manner. Ho was poorly
and insufficiently dressed nnd presented a most woe-be-gone appearance
When dinner time came round he nte
a hearty meal and at its conclusion be*
hived a little better than he had previously done. Yesterday morning he
was remanded for a day in order to
find if his manner would indicate insanity. This morning howas discharged, completely cured, and somewhat
njore plump than whentakon in charge.
The police now think that the man
was suffering from starvation and was
on the point of suicide.
Tlie Great Carnival.
Tremendous interest is being taken
in (he approaching, carnival in Montreal. The governor-general is to inaugurate the festivities and give the entire week's programme his patronage.
State governors, .lout-governors and
prominent people from all parts of tho
world are to view the spectacles. Loiters are pouring in to tho committee
from Europe and the United States
enquiring for particulars, Tho committee are making extraordinary
preparations for a magnificent ear-
nival. Those who cannot go to Montreal for a week of wonderous merriment will, we hear, find the oventa in
all their marvellous beauty reproduced in tho carnival number of tho
Montreal Star, which it ia said
will be a perfectly stunning number.

Smallpox al Bale Inlet.
Mr. P. McTieman, Indian agent,
and Dr. McGuigan left Vancouver for
Bute Inlet this morning to investigate
the reported cases, of small-pox there.
If it is founol that small-pox has
actually gut a hold on the Indians a
strict quarantine will bo established
and competent nurses for tho caro of
tho patients will be appointed. A
Roman Catholic missionary accompanies Mr. McTieman and will remain
with the Indians to administer spiritual ooosolation to those ajTt-cted by
the disease. Should the small-pox get
a good footing among the Bute Inlet
Indians it is probable the whole northern coast will bo infected, as it
would require a small army to maintain absolute iion-mtercour.se with
neighboring tribes. It is generally
hoped that the reported cases will
turn out to be somo less malignant
disease.
Au Objectionable Practice.
The two rival dailies of Vancouver
have both devoted about two columns of
sickening guff ovor the execution of
Jones, the brutal and drunken murderer of Durant. Before this man's
conviction of the terrible crime which
ho has just now expiated, he was
known to be a depraved and violent
character. Since his condemnation he
has beon treated and talked of as a
hero, and even the last words and ex-
pressioils of the crime-stained wretch
are printed with all tho effusive un-
ctuotisness and with more attention to
detail than tho words of a good man
would have been. But a few ahort
weeks ago the man was crime-stained
with the blood of a murdered man, yet
ho walks to the scaffold and proclaims
that ha has beon furgivon and will
meet death bravely. Ib tlio chronicling of such scenes aud tho description
of tho pious beatitude of the murderer
likely to duter other criminals from
committing such acts as Jones was
hung for. Other criminals will road
theso descriptions and fancy that it is
quite hero-like to figuro a principal
actor in these scenes. The press
should keep auch descriptions out of
its columns, or else paint them in less
attractive colors, - Standard.
Notes From Ihe Interior*
We take the liberty of publishing
the following from a private letter of
an esteemed subscriber and occasional
correspondent at Rnderby:
Thore ia very little move here in any
business. The biiow has kept off wonderfully, it is only six inches deep now,
nnd foil this woek. Our river waa
bariod with ice in spots forafew days,
about tho 1st inst., but there is no ice
now. Stock nre doing well, and the
deer hnvo a grand timo. The hunters
of summer and fall have gone, while
tho Indians apply themselves more to
farming nnd civilized habit-*, so that if
the deer can cheat tho wolves they
must increase.
1 hope when the time comes that
our Okanagan and Shuswap railway
needs a kind word you will help ub
by your favorable views of the project,
and your hope of the important future
of this section of British Columbia.
There is a large area of country without an outlet, and the railway is essential to its development. All parts of
the country need this road, for it is
essentially tho wheat area, where the
best qualitioB can be grown and harvested. I tun sure it is n wise policy
to feed our own peoplo with tho products of our own country rather than
to import. If wo can reach your city
and the other cities, towns und districts on the coast with our flour, we
could develop into a large community,
nnd bo good purchasers in your city
wares. To be any benefit to ourselves

Beards! Trade.
It will bo noticed thnt tho regular
meetings of tho council of the board of
trade have boen changed from Monday
to Wednesday, at 4 p. in. Tho next
regular meeting takes place in the
board room to-morrow afternoon. At
tho last mooting a resolution was passed instructing the secretary to call the
attention of the federal government
to the importance of having a V. S.
consular agency established at this
city. There is no such agency now in
extstance, and when goods aro exported to Ihe United States it is necessary,
aftor placing them on board the ships
or cars, to send to Vancouver or Victoria hi order to procure the necessary
papers. This entails considerable de*
lay,' and after involves a good deal of
vexation and expense The establishment of a consular agency here is very
necessary, and the importance of it is
constantly increasing with the expansion of our export trade. When the
Southern Railway has-been completed,
and tho new milla now about to be
erected nre in operation, it will be
quite impossible to avoid such an ap*
point ment; and as it will coat the federal
government nothing, there is no valid
ground upon which an objection could
be urged against immediate action.
Our exports lust year amounted in
value to upwards of $100,000, according to tho customs returns; but in
consequence of the absence of a con*
Bular agency here, a considerable
amount of the exports from this eity
were entered at Vancouver and Viotoria. Thia ahould no longer bo neceaaary. The board alao instructed the
secretary to lay before tho government
the need of having a part of the harbor
dredged ao aa to allow vessols of deep
draught to reach the wharves. The
cost of thia work will be very small,
ns the government owns a dredger in
this province whioh oould do the work
in a tew days. It is to bo hoped the
representations mado by the board of
trade may lead to the accomplishment
of both theie very desirable improvements.
