JACK IHE lUI'I'EK.
London, Sept. lO.—Athalf past live
this morning a policeman found the
body of nn abandoned woman lying in
lho corner of tlio railway arch spanning Cabin Biruut, Whitechapel. An
examination of the body showed tho
head and lt'^a Imd been cut off nnd carried away, and .the Btonmch ripped
open leaving the buwels lying upon the
({round. Th*} n»lioe authorities iinmo*
deately placed a cordon of officers
iiround tho Kp<-tj, hut no arrests were
made. A policeman passed the place
where the body was found every fifteen
minutes throughout the night and saw
nothing to nroiiRO hii suspicions. Tlio
physiciiina who examined the body boliove that the murder occupied nearly
an hour, and that the murderer carried the head and legs away in a bag.
This murder is tho most horrible of
the wholo Whitechapel series. The
disBectiou of the body shows that the
perpetrator poGscsaed considerable
surgical skill. The murdered woman
was about 30 years of ago, and was
evidently addicted to the excessive use
of spirituous liquors. Her olothing
waa shabby. As yet she has not been
identified.
The murder haa created trcmenduous
excitement and a large crowd of agitated humanity surrounds tho morgue
where the body was taken. A further
examination reveals the fact that there
was no blood on the ground where the
body wns found, nor was thero any indication of a struggle. This confirms
the general belief that the woman was
murdered in a house and her body
taken to tho spot where it was discovered, The trunk was eut and torn and
a bloody chemise waslyingnearit. Experts are of the opinion that tho woman
was killed two days ago. Three sailors subsequent to the discovery of the
body were found sleeping in an adjoining arch. Thev were arrested but
convinced tho police thoy had neither
seen or heard anything of the murderer
of the body lying near them and were
discharged,
MR. YATE8' CABLE.
Lo-sdon, Sept. 10.—Princo Albert
Victor is to attend tho German autumn mniHBuvors next year, and also
thoae of the Austrian-Hungarian army,
Tlio Duoheas of Cumberland has arrived at Sohloss on a viait to the queen
of Denmark, having travelled direct
from Omundon, by way of Lubeck.
This is the first viait the duchess has
paid to Denmark for several years, as
she has uot been the guest of her parents since her Illness. I hear from
Copenhagen there have beon some
stormy scenes at Fredensburg since
tho arrival oftho czar, who has been
rendered furious by the projected be-
throthat of Prince Christian of Denmark, the eldest son of the crown
ptinoe, to Princess Margaret of Russia, tho youngest sister of the Emperor
William. Nu marriage could possibly
be more obnoxious to the Russian
oourt, as it will absolutely preclude all
hopo of Demniul* taking part against
Germany iu caso of war and the czar
has always boen accustomed to regard
Denmark as a portion of hia own dominions.
THE ROYAL YACHT,
The appointment to thu command of
the royal yacht Osborne, has not yet
been filled. It is no secret that Prince
Louia of Battenburg.hns been pressed
toaxopt it. Prince Edward Saxo*
Weimer is to retain the command of
the troops in Ireland until Oct, 1800.
He la exceedingly popular in Dublin,
and is, I hear, happy and comfortable
there. Although there have been
moro than once reports that he was
likely to resign his command of the
troops, nothing has transpired to jus*
tify thia rumor,
THE CZAR PANICKY.
We may hear any day, after the
German autumn mancouvers are over,
that the czar has left Fredensberg for
Potadam. Tho uncertainty and mystery about his visit are due to the fact
that, a rumor recently reached St.
Petersburg of another plot to assaesin-
ato his majesty, who consequently
is in a state of panic,
THE BAItniUOr.S  SHAH.
The emperor- uf Austria, tho arch
duko and his relations, would hnvo
been nearly mad, I am told, if the
Shah had stopped in their country for
another weok. His ostentatious in-
differonco was regarded in Vienna and'
Pesth ns downright barbamm.
OltE.VT  TIDES.
New York, Sept. 10.*—Tho greatest
tido ever experienced struck Cony Island at 0 o'clock this morning, and in*
creased in volume nnd fury until long
past 8 o'clock, Constornation reigned
supremo everywhere. Tho water
poured iu volumes underneath the
Manhattan beach hotel floor, and beds
were inundated fully a foot. All of
tho lamp posts which bordered the
path noxt to the aoa have been literally torn from thoir foundations and
bent nnd broken as if they wero straws
and dashed against tho music stand.
The concrete wall directly in front of
the big building was undermined and
torn away and the bulkhead haa been
torn ap and rent asunder. The cellar
of tho hotel at 8 o'olook this morning
had five foet of water in it, the little strips of land between the Brighton
nnd Manhattan hotels has been eaten
away, and the ocean and Sheepshead
Bny is conneoted by fully five feet of
water. The Manhattan and Oriental
hotels stand by themselves on a little
island that is fast boing eaten away.
WIND AND WATER.
Nbw York, Sept. 10.—Great damage waa dono by the winds and high
tides at Coney Island on Sunday and
laat night. The greater part of the
"Concourse" was washed away, and
the water got to the basement of the
Manhattan beach hotel. The marine
railway was iwept away laat night.
ANOTHRR CONFERENCE.
London, Sept, 9.—Negotiations for
the termination of the striko continue.
The only queition is the date when
tho termB shall go into effect. The
conference waa held in the Mansion
house; the lord mayor presided, and
Burns and 'fillet t wero present. Tho
meeting adjourned until to-morrow.
In the meantime the strike goes on
and the situation remains  unchanged.
WINUOM WILL EXPLAIN.
Wabhinoion, Sept. 9.—Secretary
Windom haa prepared a statement,
which will be made publio later, allowing the purchase of bonds by this administration with the prices paid therefor, aud also giving various reasons
for tho increase of publio dobt as shown
by the statement of August,
QORED BY A HULL,
Ottawa, Sopt. 9.—Yesterday aftornoon a fearful accident happened on
the exhibition grounds. Tho men iu
charge of Mr. Ruyburn's hurd of Jerseys, from St. Anne, Quobec, were
engaged in feuding thom, and onu of
them, namod Joe Elliott, wan iu thu
act of placing a pail of mash beforo an
aged bull, when the brute gorged him
in the Ride, the horn penetrating the
lung. Medical aid was immediately
sent tor and the poor fellow was conveyed to the hospital. He is still living but oan scarcely recover. Elliott is
an English emigrant, being with his
present employer about 2 years. He
is ubout 28 years of age.
the appointment op q. c'u.
Toronto, Sept. 9.—The question
whether the federal or provincial governments have the right to tho ap*
Sointment of queen's counsels, says the
fail this morning, is at least likely to
be determined. Mowat is said to be
considering a case that will bring the
matter to an issue, Although of
special interest to the legal profession,
tho aubject is one of far wider importance involving questions of local and
foderal jurisdiction under the B. N. A.
act of great moment to all the provinces.
A I'lLOMM CHOKED.
Quebec, Sept 9.—Jean Routland, a
Silgrim on the way to St. Anne, from

pioee of meat while eating hia dinner.

Between eighteen of the principal
oities of Great Britain a telegraphic
money order service went into operation the other day. The method
varies from the regular routine of the
mail money order system in that the
receiving olerk endorses the order "to
be sent by telegraph," At the post-
off co wltert) payment is to be made
tbo recipient identifies himself,
gives the name of tho remitter, and
at once secures the cash. This is a
great advantage in the postal service;
but we oan hardly expect Mr. Haggart to plagiarize it for our benefit
yot.—Mail.
Dr. Hammond, of elixir fame,
tells a pretty good story about himself. He had a wealthy patient
who imagined he had swalowed a
chicken bone, and that it had stuck
in his stomach, making it sore. Ho
know it was there. The doctor
knew it wns not; he also know that
ib must be removed or his patient
would never recover. He injected
apo-morphia hypodermically. In
two or three minutes the patient was
in the throes. The doctor had provided a chicken bone, and while his
patient was struggling the hardest
he dropped it just before him unobserved. Ho had "known that it
was there all the time." For this
tho doctor never received a oent,
though his enemies said ho got a
thousand dollars for his little deception. 	
One of Mr, Gladstone's conversational advantages is that he has
known every celebrated person for
fifty years, and has endless reminiscences of all of them. On one occasion at a dinner party somebody was
illustrating the Duke of Cambridge's
remarkable command of damnatory
rhetoric. The Duke has a fierce
temper, and at review ono day he
made a forciblo observation about
a certain officer's eyes. The officer
promptly rtqunated him to confine
Ins objurgation to his own eyes.
"Yes," said Mr. Gladstone, "but the
Duke of Cambridge is mild compared
with his uncles. 1 remember the
old Duke of Cumberland, who was
famous for his habit of garnishing
other people's remarks with his own
oaths. When the the first bill for
the abolition of churoh rates came
before the House of Lords, the Duke
was asked to oxpress to the Archbishop of Canterbury the wish of the
majority that he should move its
rejection. Off went the Duke with
this commission. Presently he returned, and in a loud voice, for he
was rather deaf, exclaimed : 'The
Arohbishop says he will be devoted
to everlasting fire if he does not
work the rejection of the bill,'" It
need scarcely be said that tho language which his Grace of Cumberland professed to quote from his
Grace of Canterbury has been some
somewhat softened,—Ex.
A Night of Perfect Enjoyment,
Brilliant   Speeches,   Popular
Toasts, and Good Songs.
The banquet to tbe Hon. Edgar
Dewdney laat night at the Colonial
Hotel wus indeed a grand success, aud
never in the history of the Royal
Oity did tho people turn out more
unanimously or more willingly thun
on the present occasion. It was to
honor an old timer, an old Caribooite,
an old citizen and an old and steadfast
friend of the province at large, that
the people of Westminster assembled
last uight i an^ the guest of the evening muit iwto appreciated the feelings, spontaneous and unselfish, that
prompted the many tributes of love
and respect he received, It was a
gathering long to be remembered in
the Royal City, and to the old pioneers of the province who graced the
board it wu a reminder of the dangers,
hardships, struggles and victories of
the glorious past.
Shortly after 9 o'clock the doon of
the dining room were thrown open
and Mayor Townsend, escorting the
guest of the evening, entered the room
followed by tbe guests, two by two.
The board was set ln most convenient
form, one table running the full
length of the room, while at right
angles to, and adjoining It, was a row
of small tables. On the right of
Mayor Townsend sat the guest of the
evening, Hon. Edgar Dewdney, and
Mr. LB. Fisher, and on the left Mr.
D. Chisholm, M.P., and Mr. W. H.
Ladner, M. P. P. Ex-Mayor Dickinson filled the vice-chair, and was supported on one side by Reeve Kirkland of Ladners and by Mr, B.
Douglas on the other. The scene,
when all were seated, was strikingly
handsome. Vases and pots of beautiful
flowers graced the tables in profusion,
whleh together with the pyramids of
fruit, moulds of jellies, dishes of
bright confections, and the many
other attractive features with which
the table was adorned, presented a
picture at once novel, pretty and
fascinating. The menu was large and
varied, the cooking excellent, and on
the  whole the spread   did   ample
had worked for weeks wo thought
fully a hundred tons had been out and
stacked, but when Mr. Armstrong
came down and measured it and only
found Iii tons you can imagine our
feelings (great laughter). Having met
with, so little success as a farmer, I
returned to Westminster. The second
sale of town lots was about to take
place and a Viotoria auctioneer came
op to do the business. But the people
of the Royal City were as loyal then
as they are now and they sent the
Victorian back saying tbey would find
a local man to conduct the sale. One
day while dining with Ool. &oody he
aaked me if I had evor been an
auctioneer; I said I had not but would
not mind trying my hand at it. He
recommended me to Goverm-r Douglas and 1 was appointed to conduct the
Bale. The sale was a sucoeei, for I
sold $360,000 worth of pre petty in
one day. (Great applause). With
the profits of thia sale 1 built an office
and went into the real out ito business, but this did not pan out Well
bo 1 lott for the mines and worked
there surveying. Business was so
good with me that I made 910,000 in
three months. Next I took contracts
from the government for road building, and built a portion of tho Yale
wagon road. After I was through
with tliis work I had a lot of lioraea on
my hands, so I went into tht paokinq
busiocss. from Yale to Cariboo, and I
never felt a prouder man in my life
than when I concluded a contract tu
pack goods to the mines at 75 cents
per pound; but I felt pretty miserable
later bn when I left 46 horses doad in
the snow. I returned to Westminster
and shortly left the province. Later
you sent me to parliament to represent this district, and I did a* woll as
I possibly could for you. While T was
still representing you I was offered an
important position in the Northwest,
and I accepted it. The Toronto Globe
said 1 had sold myself and my constituents (cries of not nol). As it turned
out my constituents were plensed with
my promotion. I had a difficult task
before me in the Northwest, but I ae-.
complished it. The Indians were then
fierce and warlike, but I went; among
them-unarmed and without -escort and
iu a very short time 1 gained their respect, I did sll I conld to better the
conditions of the Indians and they
knew it and appreciated it. These In*
disns are now all ln a prosper ms condition. Before my term of office expired I was offered the governorship
of the territories, whioh I accepted and
held until I was appointed minister of
the interior. When Hon. Mr. Whito
died it was generally thought that a
western man should get thu vacant
portfolio, one who knew the country
and the people, and who would there*
fore know how to deal with the busi-
justico to the well-known reputation I DeM 0t the department.   Sir John was
The Empire says the minister of
marine and fisheries has received a
despatch from Ool, E. G. Prior. M.P.,
of British Columbia, which states that
by the treaty of 1824 Russia had no
right to anything under parallel 54"
40'' latitude, and that when the
United States purchased Alaska they
purchased what wss above this
parallel. Both Ounalaaka and the
Aleutian Islands are below the parallel,
Col. Prior asks that these statements
be placed beforo tho imperial authorities.

the governor-general of Uauadaand the
lieut.-governor o! British Columbia,
rhich was receivad with "they ate
jolly good fellows." -  .
Mayor Townsend, amidst much enthusiasm rose to his feet and proposed
tho toast of the evening, "tbo Dominion government and parliament of
Canada," coupled with the lames of
the Hon, Edgar Dewdney and Mr. D.
Chisholm. fn proposing the toast the
chairman referred briefly to Hon. Mr.
Dewdney'a life in British Columbia,
his good work on our behalf and tho
great interest he haa always manifested
sn the province. Mr Chliholm's untiring efforts on behalf of hts constituents
were also handsomely acknowledged.
"They are jolly (food fellows" was
sung with gnat spirit, ending with
three timea three and a "tiger."
Heu. Edgar Dewdney on rising
was greeted with a tumult of applause,
and cheor after oheer made the air
ring again. When the applause final,
ly subsided tbe honorable gentloman
aaid: Mr chairman and gentlemen, I
have to thank you for the very kind
manner in whioh you have received
Mrs. Dewdney and myself on our present visit After the long trip I made
to-day I will not tu you with a lengthy
speech, more espeeislly aa my friend
Mr. Chisholm i, to follow ne, and
whose oratorical powers are greater
than mine. I am an old timer and
came to the province by way of Panama, aa many ol my old friends came
about the same tin,, If I recollect
right I arrived in British Columbia in
1859. Many others arrived a year or
two afterwards, eame overland, and
many of you who came across the continent by rail in a ccsmfortible palace
car can scarcely appreciate what the
brave and hardy pioneers had to contend
with. I well remember the day, now
over itO years ago, when I flrst landed
ln Westminster. There were only
three tents on tbe townsite then, and
theso gave little evidence of the greater tlsiugs in store. I take pride in
this oity because I came here in the
early days and took my part in building ita foundation of prosperity. (Ap-
plsuse). 1 assisted in the survey ol
the townsite, under Col. Moody, and
forthe time I wss under military
orders. For this work I was paid in
920 gold pieces, and I never was ao
proud in my life as when I walked
down from Sapperton jingling this
money—tbe first I bad ever earned in
my life (groat applause). Then I decided to go into farming and formed
a partnership with another green Englishman and an experienced Canadian
farmer. Ihad the capital and the
Oanadian had the experience, but
when the firm dissolved a little later
neither of us had any capital,
but both plenty of experience.
We left town one night about
10 o'olock in an old oanoe for
our farm, down on the Delta, and
had not proceeded far when our craft
ran aground and there we remained
until daylight, We reached our
destination all right and started
operations. The first thing done waa
to aet out a small garden, but we knew
nothing ol spring tides and one morning the water came up and overflowed
our vegetables. Then we wanted a
well for fresh water and we dug one.
It seemed strange that we did not
have to go far for water, for lota slowed
in and we (ound it to be salt chuck
Then we took a contract
from Ool, Moody t</ supply him with
100 tons of hay, at $100 per ton,
delivered at Fort Douglas, We
kedalong time on thia contract
•nd kept lending to Westmlnater for
supplies from Mr. Sheriff Armstrong,
then > leading merchant.   Aim wa
of this opinion, and although many
professional politicians pressed tbeir
claims, be said "No, a western
man must have the Vacancy."
I was given the portfolio, and
now, after one year's service, 1 havo
received thti'kindest and- most hospitable treatment at every point whero I
have stopped on my journey ,
across the continent. Mr. mayor and',
gentlemen, I will always remember .
the kindness 1 hare received since my
arrival here. I Juivo nlw.iys taken as
lively intorest in this city islsd always
will; and Iv. ill do all lean in Ins,
house to lsolp you. I uui glad to see
the prosperity tho city evinces on .
every side. Your Industrie., tt. all
in a flourishing condition. The government is only too glad to meet the
wishes of the people of British Columbia iu every way, and I will be baok
in Ottawa in a few weeka and ao, gen-
tlemiiii, if you havo any axea to grind,
ssow iB tho timo to apeak out. Before
concluding I may say if any constituents have a oonaciencioua reisrosenta-
tive, you have in Mr. Cbislu lm. Ho
works honestly and persevecingly in
your behalf, and never does he neglect oven the most trifling mi.tter that
affects your interest 1 hope to seo
him in Ottawa again noxt session renewed in strength and spirits. (Long
and continued applause.)
Mr. Chisholm on rising was greeted
with cheers. He ssid: I am glad to
see so many here to-night to honor
Mr. Dewdney. I am glad also to see
so many old faces present, for 1, too,
am an old pioneer of the province and
have packed my blankets like so many
more of you, Tho hon. minister of
the interior hu alwaya doms well in
the many important positions he has
occupied* I am satisfied he 11 a friend
of British Columbia, and I a suro yon
he ia a warm friend too. In sehulf of
the parliament of Canada. I tlsank you
for the toast, Canada may well be
proud of her parliament, w'sich is a
body of men as intelligent as that
whioh rules over the destinic* of any
nation, not excepting the imperial
commons (applause). The great work
that Canada has accomplished, under
the government of Sir John A. Miu-
donald, the construction of the Canadian Pacific railway, la tbe wonder of
the world. And credit must be given
also to the people who won bold
enough to support such a gigantio
aoheme. I support the pnsent government because I believe it to be the boat
we could have; it is a progressive
natty, and a party that iB rapidly
bringing Canada to tbe front among
the other nationa. Mr. mayor and
gentlemen, I thank you for the handsome manner in whioh you hare drunk *
the toast.   (Greatapplause.)
Ex-Mayor Dickinson proposed the
health of the provincial legislature in
a few complimentary remarks.
Mr. W.H. Ladner, M. P. P., responded in his usual pleasant manner.
He ssid it did his heart good to see
Mr. Dewdney; had it not been for
him the 0. P. K. would nevor have
come down the Fruer Biver canyons,
and had it gone elsewhere we might
as well have been in Calcutta for all
the good It would have done us (ap.
plauss.) Continuing Mr. Lsdnor aaid:
I have known Mr. Dewdney a long
time and the acquaintance has been a
plessure. What I want to uk him
now is: cannot the. Dominion and provincial governments combine and
build roads into somo of our district,
at pnsent almost inaccessible.   Th,
Srovincial government aays it has not
ie funda to do th, work, so an arrangement might be arrived at between the two cabineta. It is important that the settlements ihould hav,
a free outlet After again returning
thank, for tho tout, Mr. Ladner took
hia seat amidst hearty rounds of ap*
plause.

gmlg British Columbian
Taesday Evening, Kepi. IO, IMS.
Although Hon. E. Dowdney sits
in the Dominion Houso as tho representative of ii Northwest constituency, he is nono the less a British
Columbian—and u "pioneer" at thut
—and this fact would bu a sufficient
reason for tho compliment of n publio dinnor, whicli wtw paid him last
night.   Tho first British Columbian
who has attained u soat in tho Dominion cabinet, it is natural that hu
, should be honored by British Columbians, who, although the province is
only their "stop-mother," generally
develop a fair article of provincial
patriotism (if wo may so express it)
beforo tbey havo been long resident
on the  right  side of  the Kockies,
and  are   by no moans  slow about
hurrahing for their adopted country,
and for those whoso attainments and
achievements reflect honor upon it.
But while all this might be said of
any British Columbian who had won
his w*y into the central executive,
thero is an element hi New Westminster's compliment to Mr. Dewdney v. Inch is of a personal nature.
Among thoae whose recollection of
provincial affairs goes back tothe
middle years of tho 70s, ho is not
so muh the minister of the interior,
as the champion of Now Westminster's side in the long "battle of the
routes."   We  say New Westminster's side, because the Royal City
was then the only important centre
of population favorable to tho adoption cf tho Fraser route.   Outside of
thi.. city, but ono newspaper (the
Cariboo Sentinel) was published on
tho mainland, and the Sentinel advocated the Bute Inlet route.   To-day,
the large and influential communities of Vancouver and New Westminster, with their widely circulated
daily papers, backed by the vigilant
Sentinel of Kamloops, might well
consider  themselves   more  than a
match for any tiling inimical to the
inti-reats of the lower mainland; but
twelve or thirteen years ago, when
one   little   town with a  couple of
semi-weekly papers of small circulation; aided only by the sympathy
of a few inland villages,' hhrf to bear
the brunt of the battle against the
daily press and powerful influence
oi. the capital, such an outspoken,
able, and  thoroughly well posted'
champion as Mr. Dewdney proved
himself to be, counted for a whole
battalion in the fight.
Tho new paper has found its
tongue at last, and greetings come
irom Church street; but tho utterances aro a little hasty and incoherent, and display a remarkable ob
tutidity on some points. We havo
no intention of defending The Columbian against the stupid "chestnuts" whicli our original Q}_ cotem.
tires off, or indued. to notico any of
its utterances with respect to this
paper, but merely to correct a very
muddlod impression whioh is painfully apparent on a point or two,
and'wljich clearer brains and oven a
an mi I share of common senso must
hive saved tho editorial head from
becoming tangled with. We refer
to the insufferable stupidity of the
new paper, displayed in ita editorial
this morning, in supposing that any
remarks of Tuk Colum bun referred in any senso to tho person.,^
of tho morning journal. Wo vould
say once and for ull, and mtutoab as
emphatic ua possiblo, that Our-vnther
fresU eotem. fror*. th& mountains
Wy net repeat the palpable blunder,
that Tub Columbian knows nothing
nor uaros nothing about the religious
views nr private conduct of the per
sonntl \/% fehu Truth staff, from thu
c-diti.r-iii-chicf to tho dovil. The
paper itself is tho entity wo have to
doat with, and the Church street
print ought to havo known that,
and not to have made itself ridiculous, ai> it did this morning, by talking about the religious views of its
editor and defending its stall' from
imaginary imputations as to their
gentlemanly behavior. Thuy may
be aU gentlemen for all we know,
we trust they are, and are perfectly
willing to believe such to hn tho
case. Again, we say, it is with the
paper Truth and its utterances that
we hnve to do, not with tho individuals that may happen to composo
its staff, We would just Bay a
word aliout thu foolish parting fling
of lhe new paper, that of its staff
"no one of thom has obtruded himself on This Columman." This is
not so creditable to the stall' in question iu our cotem. imagines, and it
should have known better than to
have mado tho boast; for it could
only have been through ignorance
or disregard of ordinary journalistic
amenities that tho heads of the
staff, at least, failed to make a
oivil eall at this office, whore they
might have known they would have
beeu civily received. Wo havo no
quarrel with the staff of the . now
paper, but wo have treated tho paper itself on its merits, aud have
givon it some good advico, which we
are glad to note has not been alto*
gether thrown away, as there has
already been a toning down of some
"fresh" and obnoxious features.
There is still "room for improvement," however. Experience
teaches.
Boulanger,   like    last    season's
drowned   dog, to   plagiarize   from
Ourlylo, wo  believe it is, Continues
to float up and down with tho tido,
and will not disappear wholly from
tho public view, although his odor is
not now particularly savory cither
witli his compatriots or the great
disinterested world  at large.    The
bravo general, it is  said, declares
that ho will   return to France and
take part iu the general elections
this fall, even though a visit to his
beloved country may lose him his
liberty of person   This sounds courageous, but hitherto the genoral has
not been conspicuous for his bravery.
It is hardly probable, it is thought,
that Boulanger will carry his alleged intention into execution.    Tho
mau who   ran  away when ho was
about to bu tried will hardly hasten
back after his conviction, unless, indeed, tho   means of  whitewashing
him, provided  through a party success, aro at hand.    But it is difficult
to understand how, if tho electorate
has any conscience, tho necessary
victory can bo secured, remarks an
exchange, which gives tho following
comprehensive resume of Boulanger's crookednesses, for all of which he
has recently been condemned by tho
French  senate:  Boulanger's partisans claim, it is true, that their hero,
the man who is to place tho republic
upon a firmer and purer foundation,
is no worso than his cotemporaries
on the other side.   But this excuse
is a poor substitute for the plea of
"not guilty."   It happens, however,
that tho charges against Boulanger
have something more to back them
than mere hearsay.   They are not
all  politicians' stories.    Tako, for
example, tho evidence in the epau*
lette job.    Gen. Lewan, minister of
war, had issued an order abolishing
epaulettes in tho army,   Boulanger
was then in command at Tunis, and
he had for jackal, or "heeler," a man
named Buret.    When the order was
issued, a  certain contractor namod
Dupuy was left with a very large
stock of epaulettes on hand.   It was
therefore of the last importance to
him to get the order rescinded or
postponed.   So he applied to Buret,
and promised him two cents a pair
on all his (Dupuy's) stock if he influenced Boulanger to got the order
cancelled.   Buret undertook tho job
and wont   to   Boulanger, but. Boulanger was apparently, cautious, and
wanted a guarantee, or "anchor to
windward," bo I)npuy wrote Buret
the following letter: "I am sure you
personally lmve completo contidence
iu   my   word,   but  possibly   your
friend"—moaning Boulanger—"may
not havo that confidence, and I accordingly meet ull doubts by telling
you that  I am ready to write you a
letter making a positive engagemf nt
in any terms you please."   In another   letter   to   Buret  ho   Baid:
"Come and seo mo after your visit
to the groat chief [le grand nkef],"
aud in still another: "You know
thero will be twenty contimes a pair
for   you."    Then  G-en. Boulanger
went to work, and aa a res-alt of hia
mediation the order was postponed,
arid Dupuy was enabled to sell his
stock, the   general, it  is admitted,
enjoying the coaamSasion.   Then it
appears   that Boulanger shared in
another    co«mission-lS40.000   allowed   by a   contractor supplying
coffee to the army- tlmt, while minister of war, he maintained an advertising bureau which distributed
forty-ono difforent chromo-portrudis
uf himself  at the public exfttuct-;
that ho spent $00,000 of the. secret
service   money of the war tfepart-
ment   on party organs or. journals
engaged to puff him; thai;he-spent
$30,000 of tho secret service money
on a military club j that just before
leaving the war department he took
§6,000 for himself;, that lie paid off
while  in  offico  $12,000 of   debts
without any visible accession of fortune , that he furnished an apartment   ha*iidsouiely with the public
monoy •    that  he  conspired with
lloch'dferil  and others to get up a
ri'-t, ftt}. the Lyons station when he
T-«a* leaving Paris; that  he camo
secretly to  Paris  from   Clermont-
Ferrand   without,  leave* that    he
prepared a coup d'etat when M. Gravy
was going out of office; that  he got
up  a plebiscitary campaign   after
lea vine; the army;  and that he was
in possession of largo sums of money,
the source of which he dared   not
reveal,    Boulanger has denied somo
of the accusations;  but those relating to tho secret service  money he
practically admits, pleading  that it
is customary to steal, and further-,
that "part of the money was used to
procure the theft  by night  of  this
private papers of  the  military attache of tho  great  powers."   The
denials, where made,   however,   go
for little, as evidence in  support of
overy charge is adduced.  ,,   ...       \

A Few Modern Instances of Testamentary Booentrlcity. '"'
Toitators Who Left tegaolnfl lu the Shape
or Portions of Their Jtodlei-Aji Allotv-
anon Bequeathed to a Ont-A
Saddler's Trade Devotion,
Modern Inatanoea of testamentary eccentricity abound, and the United States tn
particular seems to be singularly prolific
of curious wills-writes Kidney Hcropo in
Once a Week. Some little timo since Mr.
Solomon Sanborn, of Hedford, Mass., left
his body to the late Prof. Agassis
and Dr. O. W. Holmes, to be prepared by
thom in tho moat scientific manner known
to anatomical art, and placed in the
museum of Harvard College. Two drumheads wero to be mado of the akin. Upon one
was to bo inscribed Alexander Pope's
"Universal Prayer," on the other tho
"Declaration of Independence;" and then
thoy were to be presented to the testator's
"distinguished friend," the drummer of
Cobasaet. This presentation was subject
to tbe condition that on the 17th of June, at
sunrise, every year, tbe drummer should
beat upon tho drumheads at the foot of
Hunker's Hill the spirit-stirring strains of
"Yankee Doodle;"
Another American, wbo died within the
last few months, by way of revenge on bis
relations, who had neglected him, be*
qiiesthod to his brother his left arm and
hand; to another brother bis right arm and
hand, to another his legs, nose, ears, eto.
He also loft one thousand dollars for the
dismembering of his body. <->
Among other tostators who have displayed this peculiar tendency to leave legacies In the shapo of portions of tbelr bodies
may ba mentioned Jeremy Bentbam, tho
English writer, who bequeathed his body
to the University College Hospital, with
instructions that his skeleton Bhould be prepared and cleaned, and that it should president themee tings oftho hospital directors.
Whether this provision was ever carried
out is doubtful, but it is certain that the
skeleton was preserved, and may be seen
to this day in the hospital museum,   i
A wealthy German who died the other
day bequeathed his effects to a poor man
whom he greatly disliked on condition that
ho always wore linen under-elothes and
dressed In white, and a short time ago
• Stanislaus Poltmorz, a Hungarian, left the
greater port of his fortune to a notary
nnmed Lots, forbidding him, however, to
tako possession until he had sung at La
Scuta Opera House, tbe parts of Verdi's
"Otollo"andElvirein"Somnambula;"while
John Reed, the gas-lighter of the Walnut
Street Theater, Philadelphia, directed that
his head, after being duly prepared, should
bo employed to represent tho skull of
' Yorlck in "Hamlet," ■*-*.     •     ■■-.*.
Lord Newborough, whodled In November,
1838, direoted that, after a certain period
elapses, his body is to be exhumed and rein terred in Bardsey Island, which is reputed
to have no fewer than twenty thousand
■ Bcinti burled in its soli, and Mr. John
Broiv-ne, of Bathbano County, limerick, re-
, quired that hia son, Rev. Peter Browne,
should under penalty of forfeiting a consiil-
erable estato, change his Christian name,
"Peter," for either "William" or "James,"
theold gentleman having taken an inveterate dislike to his son's namo, while a rich
saddler ordered In hiB will that his daughter
. should loso tho whole of ber fortune if sho
did uot marry a saddler. It turned out,
howovor, that she married the Earl of Hall-
{ fiij.-, who, in order to win the bride, .actually
i servi'd an apprenticeship ot seven years to
usiulUler. ■-..'•vyr*...-'",
i    Not long sinco a Mr. Harper settled a bun*
i dred a year on his "young black oat," the
> intcrost to bo paid to his housekeeper, Mrs.
Hodges, as long as tho oat remained olive;
and quite recently an old Parisian dame
left iiftoen hundred a year to her butcher,
whom she had nover seen; while ono man
chinked his will on a corn-bin; and
another inscribed bis on a bed-post.
Both    tha    corn-bin    and    the    bed-
i post are filed In tho will oflloe at Doctor's
* Commons, London. The whimsical will of
1 tho. Scotch gentleman, who bequeathed to
i onuh of his daughters her weight In one*
*} pound notes, has of ten been quoted. More
remarkable still Is the will of the New
y.-rker who directed that his enoandseven-
ty pairs of trousers should be sold at publio
auction without being examined beforehand. Tho sale was actually held, and tho
. ■ seventy-one purchasers found in tho right*
hand pocket the neat littlo sum of a thousand dollars ln cash.
Another peculiar legacy was that of
t Colonel Nash, an English officer, who bequeathed an annuity of fifty pounds to the
boll-ringers of Bath Abbey, on condition
that they Bhould muffle the clappers of tho
, be lis of tho Abbey, and ring them with dole-
"•ful accentuation from eight a. m, to eight p.
'• tn. on each anniversary of his wedding day;
', whilo a Mr. Luke, of Rotherlngham, aftor

loaves should be thrown down from the

RODENT AND FELINE.
Tho lint Climbs Upon Tom and Polls His
Bars and Tall. '--■*.
A .rat and a cat may bo seen playing to*
gr mer almost any day at a livery stable in
this eity, says a Louisville letter. The cat
** is a big black Tom, with long whiskers, a
short tail, and yellow eyes. The rat is a
sl.-sk and fat specimen of the genus rodent,
uud has a cunning but prosperous and con*
tented look. The oat Is fierceness and savagery Itself, and bears the scars of innumerable battles, not alone with rats and
Dt hor felines, but with dogs as well, and ho
bus nover been whipped and nevor been
known to decline a fight The rat was
o. iif-iitin a wiro trap one night last week.
ho was so uncommonly large and looked
so ugly aa ho stood upon his hind logs and
ruUlcd tho wires of his cage that his captors
resolved to have somo sport with bim and
Tom. Tho cat and he wore, accordingly,
taken ovor to a neighboring saloon, the
doors closed, holes stopped up and a select
few gathered tq witness tho flght
When the rat was turned loose from the
capo Tom was ready and pounced upon htm
UiBti-nter. To tho surprise of all, however,
ho did not hurt bim. Bis olaws were
sheathed and ho plainly invited a romp.
Tlm nit did not understand his advances at
flrat, i.utwas soon nassurod and wonld
finally run from tho men to the cat for protection. In a short time they became fast
friends. Thoy now play together constantly
andtioemto understand each otber perfectly. The rat climbs all over Tom's
buck, pulls his ears and tall, and treats his
big Iriend with tho utmost;freedom. Both
spend the greater part of their time under
tlio stove in the stable office, and large
nunilmrs of visitors go there to witness the
unusual friendship between such natural
enemies, '"*&&_&

Wooden Sole Leather
Tho following Is a description of the
wooden Bole leather invented by Dr. George
Theiilus, of Vienna. The material used is
red beeohwood. The best wood for the
purpose is taken from fifty to sixty-year-old
trees, out in the spring, wblch must be
worked up immediately, bark peeled off,
steamed, treated with chemicals in a kettle
under pressure, t and exposed to soveral
moro operationi which the inventor does
not mention, as he wants to have them patented. From the prepared wood strong and
thin pieces aro mado by means of heavy
pressure. Tbe Inventor Btates tbat a solid
solo louther can be obtained, which he
claims is superior to animal ln firmness and
durability, and oan be worked up in the
sumo way as animal leather, nailed and
sowed, ,,;.-- ■     ■ , ■   ,
Tho Palatka (Fla.) Herald is responsible
for i lm following! "A man at a small station
on the Florida Southorn railway tho othor
day took down the mall sack, which was
Kiii-i.. uded on the crane, and hung himsolf

THE   FRANKING   PRIVILEGE.
Throo Liidioa Wlm P» Not Havo to liiiy
Puslage Stamps.
Thero oro but three persons In tho United
States, othor than those holding public offico, who are allowed to receive and send
mail matter free of postage, writes a Washington correspondent. These threepersons
are tho widows of the Unto Presidents
Folk, Garfield and Grant. An net of
Congress is required to grant this prlviiogo
to any ono, and it has been so granted to
the widows of Presidents since 1830, whon
the first act was passed conferring tho distinction u.-.on Mrs. Dolly P. Madison.
According to tho United Btates Postal
Laws und Regulations, which is a compilation of the rules published for tho information and guidance of postmasters and
other officials, Mrs. Tyler was not entitled
to the benefits of franking mail matter, and
It Is truo tliat no law was ovor passed
iu hor caso. Sho was, ia a Bense, a victim of
ono of Lhoso peculiar oversights of Congrass
which aro of frcquont occurrence. Tbo
Post-Office Department howovor, appreciating tho factthatMrs. Tylerwas In oquity
entitled to tbo same privilege which had by
law been granted to Mrs. Polk, Mrs. Garfield and Mrs. Grant, accepted hor frank iu
lieu of pobtago and collected nothing upon
mattor mailed to her addross.
There is a rather peculiar fact connected
with the case of Mrs. Folk also. Tho act
granting her tho privilege of freo postage
was passed in 1830. Since that dato all laws
conferring tho frankingprlvilege havo bceu
onco or twice repealed; tbe last timo In
1873, and no aot has since beon passed In
favor of Mrs. Polk. There Is no law on tho
statute books to-day, therofore, entitling her
to tho benefits of free postage, but it is allowed ber arbitrarily by tho department,
and tho Postal Laws and Regulations namo
her as ono of tho persons legally entitled to
the benefits of tho franking law.
It Is not generally known that tho law extending tho franking privilego to those
ladies also provides explicitly that mail matter, including letters, newspapers and packages addressed to thorn, is exempt from tho
payment of postage, Tho only explanation
of this somewhat peculiar provision of law
is that when Congress passed the first of
these private acts It failed to notico that
free postage to thesenders of mail conforred
no sort of benefit upon tbo persona addressed. Mrs. Polk, for Instance, is not
benefited in the slightest degree becauso
some person who wishes to writo her a letter is not required to affix & stamp to it
Yet when tho laws Jn favor of all the President's widows who camo after Mrs. Polk
were passed, tho samo language was used
and stands upon tho statute books to-day.
A sort of fatality in the direction of making mistakes seems to havo followed tho
course of law-making on tho subject of the
franking privilego, aud tho most stupendous
blunder of all that Congress made In tho
flrst general aot passed has nover yet been
corrected. This Ib tho failure to provide a
penalty for a violation of the law. Although
thero have been as- many as fifty franking*
privilego acts passed'! by Congress since
1870, not ono of them-'provides any penalty
for their infringement or evasion. Thia
very singular oversight lsac'ftuso of much
inconvenience and annoyancoto tho postal
officials, and because of it very few arrests
have beon mado, although tho ono ur franks
by unauthorized persons and on uufniuka-'
bio matter is of very frequent occurrence.

FEMININE FOOT-WEAR.
Tight Siloes as Popular as Kvor-A Reform Nfio-lutl Badly.
"Why do women wefir tight Bhocs1"was
asked a leading State i tree _ boot-maker for
the fair sex by a Chicago Tribuno roportor.
"Becauso they nro foolish," he replied
"That Is tho only answer I can mako, but li
I wero to try to convinco my customers of
tho fact I would lose their trado. The ladies
aro particular about their pet vanity and
they pay a great doal of attention to anobby
aud snug-fitting shape."
"What aro tho affects of wearing tight
shoesV" was asked of another maker.
"The offects are corns and diseased and
crippled feet and continual misery. Women
buy tight shoot*, becauso thoy aro vain. Nine
outof ten of tho ladies who como in hero
tell the clerks they want shoos tliat nm at
least ono sizo too small for them. By dint
of strotching and the use of powdered soap-
stone many aro enabled to got on and wear
away shoes that aro halt a size or a bIzo too
'small for them; tuitoccaslonallyonoiscoin-
pelled to tako tho propor sizo for her feet,
but it Is at a sacritico of her vanity, and tlio
physical comfort onjoyod does not/socm to
compensate! hor for her apparent mental
discomfort, A great many 1 -idles insist on
having shoos from special lasts that in no
wiso match tho tslmpo of their feot, and, as a
rule, thoy aro the kind who want hlgii heels,
although the stilt-like underpinning has
largely gono out of fashion. Tho evils of
high heels are, of courso, well known."
"Most of our lady customers buy shoos
tbat aro too small for thom," sold another
dealer. "Tho babit of wearing tight shoos
is as bad as the Chinese practice of band-
aging and deforming tbe foot, of their female Infants. Tbe red Indium, of America
and tho uatlves of Africa can give civilisation instruction Iu respt-t-t, to proper eore of
tbo feot. The natives nover too out but
put their feot forward in n perfectly
straight lino when walking. Livingston-.',
in his writings on Africa, relates how the
natives laughed at tbe shape of the whito
man's feet which they attributed to the
boots they woro. Tho Crow Indians make
their moccasins to too in instead of out;
tboy walk porfeotly straight and have finely formed fret, Thero are ladies of my ae*
quaintance who are almost confirmed Invalids, and their ailments wero brought
about by wearing tight, high-heeled shoes,
which throw their body forward and
caused thom to toe outward ln walking.
Many of my lady customers aro such sufferers from corns that they do not like to go
out of tho house and are in misery all of the
time whon walking, yot thoy will not forego
their vanity and wear a sensible, easy-
fitting, broad-soled, low-heeled shoo. Some
of them do not venture to walk at all, and
only go out in their carriages or upon short
expeditions whoro tha streetcars can bo
utilised for almost the ontiro distance thoy
desire to travel, I notico that a great deal
is said about dress reform for women, aud
hopo all contemplated reforms include tlio
important matter of foot-wear. Of courso,
It makes no dlfforonco to us; tho prices
would remain the same wero the fashion to
change, but wo have to supply the demand
or go out of buslnois, and It is undeniable
that as far as the ladies aro concerned tho
greatest demand Is for tight shoes,"
The Hole In the Walt
A gentloman who has recently returned
from quito a long trip through "the land of
the Aztocs" has boon giving somo interesting details of his experiences to his friends.
Among other things ho sold that when he
was ln the City of Mexico be was shown
through some anelont buildings—convents
and jails—that were erected by the Span-
lards several centuries ago. In the wall of
one of tbeBO ancient edificos he saw a small

Another Interview*
A deputation composed of Mcasrs.
D. Dockatoador, N. Oliver and J. M.
Webster, representing Haney and
Wharnoek, came down and waited on
tho Hon. Mr. Dowdney yestorday for
the purpoae of placing before him
tho necessity of tho Dominion government oponing up a road from these
two centres, to the vast tract of agricultural land in tho Stave Lako Valley.
Mr. Dewdney said it waa the first request of the kind that had boen made
and he thought it was tho business of
tho provincial government to build this
road; but the deputation pointed out
that inasmuch as these lands woro in tho
20-mile belt nnd the Dominion government was Belling both lands ahd timber
it should build this road. Mr. Chisliolm
M, P., also acquised in this view, and
the hon. minister promised to give tho
matter his consideration and when in
Victoria seo if something oould not be
done by the two governments iu tho
way of undertaking the work. Thedopu*
tation loft woll pleased with tho courteous manner iu which thoy had been received and thu way in which Mr. Chisholm had assisted them. They will at
an early dato bring tlio matter before
tho bonrd of trado aud ask that body
to use its inlluonce to open up this
benutiful prairie section of the district.
A Woir In Sheep's Clothing.
Wm. Harvey, janitor of the Seamen's
Bethel, Port Townsend, has skipped
out with considerable funds belonging
to the organization. He was a man
of temperate habiti and his eonduct
appears all the movo strange because
ho identified himself with tho church
some time ago nnd professed to having
experienced conversion. Ho took an
active part in religious and temperance
meetings. Ho left Port Townsend
hibt Wednesday ostensibly to pay u
shot t visit to Victoria and to return
home on Monday. On that day, however, ho left on the Umatilla for San
Francisco, and It was on the discovery
of this that suspicion was lirst aroused
against him. Tho Port Townsend
Call saya: "A fow days boforo his
departure for Victoria a number of
sailors deposited about $325 with him
for safe keeping, and a guld watch
belonging to a citizen had been given
to him as security for a loan of $25,
tho value of tho watch being at least
885 ; it is also Btated that he had two
more watches in his possession, that
had been entrusted to his caro. The
monoy and the gold watches he took
with him to Victoria. Upon arriving
in Victoria he deposited $300 with
Airs. Mitchell, late of this oity, who
conducts a lodging house in Viotoria,
fur Aafo keeping. This monoy he
drew befure he departed for San Francisco Monday night on the Umatilla."
The chief of police in San Francisco
has been telegraphed to apprehend
him.—Times.

An Indian arrived at Selkirk from
Lako Winnipeg Sunday night and reported that he found two bodies that
had been washed ashoro, One ol the
bodies ho recognized ns that of Jamos
Burkett who had been working ai
Crowes'Mills, Fisher river, About
two weeks ago several of the mill
hands started for Winnipeg in tail
boats, accompanied by Rev, Mr. Mo*
HafBe, but up to the present havo not
arrived and it is feared they were
caught in a storm on last Sunday night.
No trace of lho Indian can be found
to get exact particulars and much
anxiety is felt Rev. Mr, McHnfllo in
tho Methodist missionary at Fisher
river.
Hon. Air. Dewdney proposed the
healths of tho mayor nnd corporation,
nnd asked everyone to fill his glass
and drink heartily, fur it was a woll
managed city, stood well in linancial
circles and boro an excellent reputation abroad.
Aluyor Townsend said it alForded
him great pleasure to reply to this
toaBt. Westminster had launchod out
pretty extensively this year, hut it
was necessary. Water works wero required and other improvements were
in progress which would result in the
city keeping pace with its enterprising neighbors. Air. Townsond said he
also was an old pioneer, having arrived in the province 32 years ago, and
he prided himself on being classed na
ono of tho old timers of the early days.
His worship was loudly cheered on
taking his seat.
Ex-Mayor Dickinson snid tho old
corporation of Westminster had no
reason to he ashamed of its record.
It had paved tho way for the improvements now t'oing on. Ho had always
worked hard for Westminster (a voico:
"you havo"), and would always inter*
est himself in everything tending to
tho benefit nnd wolf aro of the city.
Aldermen Curtis, Ewen, Jaques,
Cunningham, Calbick and Keary also
responded to tho toast
Mr. J, 0. Armstrong proposed thu
tonst "The pioneers of British Colum*
bin," coupled with tho namo of Air.
Dewdney. He said: But for ono man
tho Canadian Pacific Railway would
havo gono by the Bute Inlet route.
Victoria worked for it, the government engineers favored itand but ono
man held out iu favor of the Fraser
river route, and that man was the
Hon. Edgar Dowdney. He fought
what is known as the "buttle of the
routes," Bluck to his convictions and
finally had tho satisfaction to win tho
light. Had it not beon tor him where
would Westminster be today? It is
hard to tell. Ho fought that fight
alone and gave us tho road, aud now
the wholo world knows his theories
wero right.   (Great applause),
Hon, Mr. Dewdney; I thank  you
again,  gentlemen,  for drinking my
health, but thero are so many of  the
good old pioneers round  tho board
that I will leave it to them to  reply to
the toast.   I might say regarding Mr.
J. C. Armstrong that he is my old
Cariboo  partner—nnd  that  partnership was the only profitable one I had
in tho mines.   Wo owned a claim  together and it was not panning out well
and 1 was willing to part with my  interest in it for a few hundred  dollars,
Mr. Armstrong told me to hold ou and
not sell out, and I took his advice,   A
fow evenings afterwards  he  came  to
ine and drawing his  hnnd  from  his
pocket showed me a handful of nug*
gets.   "Thero," said he, "didn't I tell
you it would pan  out rich?"   It  did
pan out rich  nnd  in  13  months  I
cleared $15,000 from this  mine,   As
regards my action nt  Ottawa  iu  regard to railway mutters,   1  cau  only
uny I acted  eonsciontiuualy.   I think
thu time will come   whon  other railroads, apart from tho Southern Railway, will hu built   iu  this   province,
British Columbia is thu greatest pro- |
vinoe iu tho  wido  Dominion, nud  it
must be developed (cheers).    Tho only
wuy thu immense   tracts   uf splendid
country, lying to tho  north,  cau  be
laid open for settlement is by railroad
construction—that alone  will do  it,
and I predict that beforo many  yeara
you will have other huge railwny lines
running across the breadth of tlm -province.   After paying u glowing tribute
to tho district of New Westminster tho
speaker touk his Beat amidst thunders
of applause,
Mr. Jaa. A. Laidlaw ond Air. T. E.
Ladner also responded, tho latter iu a
very happy littlo speech.
Tho agricultural, mining, manufacturing, lumbering, fishing and hanking
institutions ol the country were pro*
poaed by Mayor Townsond.
Mr. W. H. Ladner, M. P. P., replied fur tho agricultural industry, Mr.
Jaquoa for tho mining iudustry, Mr.
Ewen for the fishing industry and Mr.
Brymner fur the banking inRtitutiuns.
The "Press" was received, and Mr,
Lidner favored tho toast with a cheer*
ful little song.
Tho toast wns responded to by Mr.
G. A. Kelly and Mr. F. R, Glover.
Tho "Ladiea" elicited an unusually
happy speech from Mr. Peter Grant,
and Mr. M. Sinclair also proved him-
Belf an able champion of tho gentler
BOX.
Mayor Townsend and Air. Moresby
ench favored the company with songs
which wero woll received.
Thu Army nnd Navy and Volunteers, brought Capt. Peelo to his feet,
and a very neat and appropriate reply
to tho toast was given by him. Lieut.
Mowat also did justice to the toast in
a fow well chosen remarks concerning
volunteer service.
A very laughable Bong, "Donny-
brook Fair," by Air. Levi, kept tho
company in roars of laughter for a
quarter uf an hour.
Cheers for Mr, Dowdnoy, "God
save tho Queen" and "Auld Lang
Syne" brought this most successful
nnd enjoyable banquet to an end.
