THE (iltEAT KTHIKE.
. London, Sapt. 3.— The Lowor Hill
strikers at a mooting this morning decided to contiuue the strike. It was
announced donations to the relief fund
had been received from France, Germany and Switzerland. John Burns
to-day acknowledged tho receipt of
£3,000. Threats have been made that
if Sir Donald Ourrie took his vessels
to Southampton steps would bo taken
to prevent a single skip from unloading. Tho mon engaged in unloading
vessels in the Medway, at Rochester,
were attacked by strikers and the police
wero called upon for protection.

MR. yate's cable
London, Sopt. 3.—Tho Welsh
papers express much pleasure at tho
queen's having spoken Welih on more
than ono occasion. Tho queen appro*
ciatoa tho value of her now almost elementary knowledge of tongues of the
many people, over whom sho reigns.
Fivo or six years ago, sho began to
study Hindustan assiduously, and her
knowledge of the language iB now considerable. She can converse, read and
writo in it with a good deal of fluency.
The Indian servants whom tho queen
has about her always speak it, and one
of thom gives hor lessons. While the
Duko nnd Duchess of Connaught wore
iu England nothing else was apokon
during certain hours of the day, and
tho duchess who is a very good Hindu*
stance Boholar, acted as interpreter
between the queen and her master
whenever a hitch occurred. There
oan bo no possible doubt that the visit
of tho queen to Walts will mark nu
opoch in the history nf tho principality. Tho order of knighthood con*
forred upon Sir Evan Morris is universally popular with all classes of the
community. Thu queen was delighted
with tho order displayed in the proceeding.- at WoRtham. Shesaid many
complimentary things to Sir John Pu*
lest'-m-, who was honored by a special
fiuinmoua tu audience and luncheon.
It is now generally known that the
idea of exploring tho coal mine originated with the Princess Beatrice. Nothing could be more popular than this
practical evidonco of sympathy with
the miners, who crowded the pit mouth
und greeted the royal party with donf-
eniiiLj cheers as they emerged from tho
durkmm in orthodox pit attire, nnd
with very black faces. Tho queen
spoko with much enthusiasm of the
healthy air and bright atmosphere of
Wales. By a happy coincidence tho
queen's visit to Sir Theodore and Lady
Martin, at Boyn Thelitis, occurred ou
the anniversary of their wedding day,
and what was more appropriate still,
this was also tho birthday of the
Prince Consort, to whoso poathumos
fame Sir Theodore has largely contributed. One of the objects in the
house which tho queen examined with
interest was the bust of herself,
modelled when she was but 8 years
old. Aftor a lapse of more than GO
year, it still bears a marked resemblance tohermajeaty. Thequeonsigned
her name in Lady Martin's album,
und greatly increased the interest
always attaching to the royal sign
manual by appending a short and
touching inscription.
THE miNOB OF WALES.
During his stay iu Hamburg the
Prince of Wales wont over one day to
Darmstoadt, and placed flowers on tho
gravo of his sistor Princess Alice. The
Princo of Wales is much bettor fol* tlio
Hamburg air and seems tu bu t iking
every thing more quietly this jour. Ilia
log is much better, and ho is barely
hinie nuw. He sens a guod deal uf the
Empress Froderick. Princess Christian is still with her parents. Christian
rarely shows herself in Hamburg,
-■ponding all hor timo with hor sistdr,
lilvuryonu in Suffolk is in a flutter over
thu rumor that has got on foot that tho
Duke of Fife is looking for another
house, Castle Rising, which he rents
from the trustees of tho lato Hon.
Mr. (ireville, being two small. It was
large enough fur him in his bachelor
days, bothe may want ft large one
(low, although Castlo Rising Is conveniently near Sandruigham, which makes
il more advantageous than a larger
house further nwny.

Prince Albert Victor will take up
his residenco about the end of April in
ii^iii'tuuiuts in St, James palace, whioh

the Into Duchess of Cambridge, and
previously for 40 years by Ernost,
puke of Cumberland, aftorwars king
of Hanover. They are to undergo
such extensive internal alterations that
tho houso will bo practically a nuw
one. All the mums are to be entirely
redecorated andreohristoiicd.
THE STUIKKHS   ENCOURAGED
London, Sopt, 2.—Tho principal
shipping companies huvo demanded
permission of the dook companies to
bad and unload their ships with their
own men. The directors will make a
reply to the application at noon tomorrow. The success of the Hyde
Park mooting on Sunday hn greatly
encouraged nnd inspired strikers and
they havo.ontorod upon work today
with redoublod vigor. Tho organization is boing improved, und bitter
methods adopted for tho collection of
relief supplies, nnd their distribution
among the strikora' families, Negotiations with the wharfingers and shipping merchant have been resumed,
but uo further proposals liavo been
mado to tho duck companies by the
striker.*. The actual numbor of men
of other trades in London who have
struck work in sympathy with the
dock laborers within the last three
wooks is 14,000.

nAVITT CONDEMNS THE ALLIANCE.
London, Sept. 2.—-Considerable dissatisfaction has beon developed within
the past few dnys in tho r-iuks of tho
Irish party ovor Mr. Parnell's compact with Mr, Balfour, by virtue of
which Ireland is to seouro the endowment of a Roman Catholic university.
Although nothing is positively known
of the consideration which Mr, Balfour was promised in roturn for this
concession, no Irishman believes that
the tory chiof secretary is influenced
by purely disinterested motives, and
that a quidjiro 5110 in the Bhapo of a
promise of Irish support in some Bhape
fur the tory plans exist-, is generally
surmised. A long letter from Michael
Davitt appears in the Pall Mall Gazette
this nfternoon, in whieh that gentleman very severely condemns tho whole
proceedings un tho part of Mr. Parnell
and those who acted with him, iu giv-
ing cuuntenp.uco to the Irish university
schemo of Mr, Balfour. Ils acceptance, ho says, by the homo rulo party,
places them in a ridiculously grotesque
light, and ihoy deliberately accept at
the hands of the imperial parliament a
measure which, whatever may be said
of the merits, deals with - a question
purely of local concern and one which
an Irish parliament alone is competent
tu settle. If such a question, he says,
aa the establishment and endowment
of a Roman Catholic university in Ireland is not a proper Bubjeet for legislation cm the part of a home rulo parliament, then there is no suoh *-ubject;
the dream of an Irish parliament is a
fantasy, and the home rulo party
should disband. To couplo with such
a proposal a promise of a measure of
homo rule fur Ireland only intensifies
the grotesqueneas of thu situation, for
it may woll be a*.ked what sort of home
rulo cau it be which excludes from the
subjects with which it i3 to deal a matter uf such purely local concern aa au
Irish university1? It ia only too evident,
writes Mr. Davitt, that the Parnellites have been entrapped by a cunning
enemy into affording them assistance
in thoir endeavor to drag a red hording athwart the coiirsu of home rulo
just aa it is coming within Bight of its

Columbia itreet u at present constructed.
Aid. McPhaden ttaid It was certain
that there had bean negligence some*
where; tho Qumo had cost $850, and
would likely cost $2,000 boforo It was
complete; ho wanted to know whoro
the blame lay, whether with thu chairman of tho board of work*- or some
other person.
Aid. Jaques said it was a pretty bad
job, Mid he was very sorry it had happened. Aid. MeFhnden was drawing
the long bow when he said 82,000.
The troublo was the inspector could
not stay and watch the contractors ull
the time, and that was how tho defective work happened.
Aid. McPhaden still maintained
It would cost $2,000 to make a good
job of it.
His worship thought the city hnd a
guod case against the contractors.
Aid. Shiles said the engineer's plans
wore perfect, but tho contractors did
not carry out the work according to
specifications; there hud been gross
negligence somewhere.
Aid. Reid was of tho opinion Unit
nothing could be said against thu engineer's plans; they were as good as
they could bo.
Aid. Cunningham thought tho contractor should he made to pay for tho
damage done, and ho hoped that in
future all contracts would b-• oarried
out in tlie strictest manner.
AM. Curtis did not want nuy patchwork on this flume; it had to be mndo
a perfect job or it would canso grot t
damage beforo the winter is ovor.
There hud beon gross cnrlcssuess displayed somewhere, and he wanted to
know how the board of works intended
to finish the job.
Aid. Cunningham explained that
the whole flume would hare to bo
taken up and relaid.
Aid. Curti**, seconded by Aid. Calbick, moved tho buard of works be instructed to make a thorough job uf the
flume.   Carried.
Eruin N. B. Gauvroau, ciiySiii-
gineer, enclosing report of amount of
work done on the Park lane improvements.
Aid. Jaques said there seemed to be
a burst up among the contractors, and
he did not know how the job was going
to turn out. The work so far was un*
satisfactory, but nothing could be done
until the time limit expired.
His worship said tho board of works
wuuld huvo to take the contract over
snd fall back on the bondsmen.
Aid. Jaques thought itwould boa
good idea to relievo the contractors.
On motion the clerk wns inst rutted
to notify tho bondsmen that they will
be held responsible if the work is not
finished,

We are making important changes
in both our daily und weekly editions
this  month,   particulars  of  which
will bo found olsowhoro, all of whioh
are in tho direction of improvement
and progress, and for tho benefit and
advantage of our readers ami advertisers,   Still further improvement!*,
as will be seen, aro promised in tbo
near future, and our intention is to
make The Columbian, both daily
and weekly, take tho lead in overy
respect, ns it has dono in not a few
particulars in the paat.   To carry
out the enlargements and improvements in contemplation will rtfquiro
a largely increased expenditure on
our part, and we confidently appeal
to the public,  which wo   cordially
thank for their liberal  support  of
the pist, for  n  continuance  imd
increase of the samo, corresponding
to the increased  value   which   wo
have determined to  givo   for  less
money in tho future.   With  our
increase of stall' and special correspondents  at   the  provincial    and
federal capitals during the winter
sessions (which promise to bo more
than usually interesting), and other
new features   that   we   intend   to
introduce,  added  to  tho. present
excellent status of The Columbian
asn newspaper—nnd especially as a
locul newspaper, in which particular
it admittedly   leads   the   province
i.ov*—This Columbian,  daily nnd
weekly, will be so valuable, and at
thesame time so reasonable in price,
thut no one oan.afford to  bo   without it.   Remember that Tm; Col-
l'.mdian is tho people's paper,  independent in overy respect, outspoken
on all questions affecting the public
interests, as well in the ethical ns
the material sphere, audi, not published bg ov in the  interest.,   uf ang
clique   or    combination.    For    tin-
news, local, provincial aud foreign
served iu the most attractive nnd
readable   style,    for    independent
and   outspoken   comim-nt--   on   all
questions affecting the publio interests, for nn  enterprising nnd   live
paper, and one that will ever keep
abreast of tho times,  The  Columbian can be depended  upon   right
through.   Our motto, ua  wo   state
elsewhere, is:   "First  or  Hurst,"
and that, will.be hard to beat.
modest, will ask for enabling acts
in tho" regular way, ..The cotemporary quoted above lias this to say
on the claims of two of the would-
be states: Tho territories which
have sufficient population under the
congressional apportionment to support ;i single representative in congress, namely, Utah and Now
Mexico, should not bo admitted for
special reasons. Fifty per cent of
the peoplo of New Mexico can
ucithur read nor writo tho English
language, while the introduction of
tlie American school system is popularly und bitterly opposed. The
bulk of the peoplo and the whole
social and moral touo of society is
upon a basis repugnant both to English civilization and American political ideas, In Utah it is uot a question of population, nor of schools,
but one touching a policy that
antagonizes the federnl government.
Utah has never been loyal to the
government except on compulsion.
Its population increases by immigration and in a natural way
quite rapidly. No territory has u
right to statehood by virtue of population or other qualifications. Thero
is no statute conferring on a territory the right of admission, There
are, of course, numerous precedents.
But the federal government exercises the sovereign right of both admission and rejection. It may
decide that no ono of those five
territories shall be admitted for tho
present, or it muy admit one or two
of those deemed best qualified.

Soma strange tilings happen in it
railway travel, it would seem from
the following nccount  of  n   very
melancholy occurrence in tlio east:
• On a dark   niglit  tlio   brakesman
walked through the car announcing
the name of the next stopping place,
whereupon a female passenger with
her young daughter mado ready to
disembark.     Suddenly   tho    train
stopped, the party  moved   to  the
door of tlio car, nnd the girl stepped
out and down the steps,  not,   however, on to tho platform of  u   railway station, hut into a river many
feot   below.   The  shrieks   of   tlie,
drowning    child    prevented     tho
mothor from following her  to   her
doom.    This wns an actual occurrence, snys n Oanadian .journal,   on
one of our railways   a   fow   weeks
ngo, mid llio explanation of it was
thnt nfter the brakesman had callod
tho inline of the station, and before
'rnwiiijj up nt   tho   platform,   tho
train -,,-:,. stopped nt  n   lank   thnt
the   Ipoomotlve   might  renew   its
wnloi supply.   Unfortunately  tho
pans-angers wero not awnro  of   tlio
cnus'.i of the stop, nor did they know
that the oars   Blood   on   a   bridgo
below   whioh   a   river   ran.    This
accident is liy no means a novelty.
Two similar cases havo   just   beon
discussed beforo   the Pennsylvania
courts.    In one   a   passenger   was
injured ; in the other tho nucident
wns fatal.   Tlio courts  havo   held
the companies liable, on the ground
that after announcing through their
agent tho namo of tho next stopping
place they were under nn obligation,
to inform the passengers if for any
reason   an earlier halt wns made'.
Henceforth, brakesmen   across   the
lino will have to notify passengers
of any  stoppage  to, be  made   in
advanoe of  arrival nt  the   noxt
station.
In arranging for the admission of
Washington, Montana and tlio two
Dakotns congress lias not  by  any
means disposed  of tho  territorial
quostion, says nn American cotemporary that ought to know ; for all
of the remaining live territories are
preparing  to  urge   their   claims.
They are i Utah, with a population
of 210,000; Now Moxioo, 160,000;
Idaho, 100,000; Wyoming, 85,000,
and Arizona,  50,000.    Idaho   unci
Wyoming have just prepared state
constitutions hy their own motion,
and will ask to come in this winter,

Tho Princess of Wales has beon
very stern nnd particular in tlio
education of her daughters. Sho
lias had good material to work upon,
as her girls are clever hy nature.
The Princess has taken great pride
in their accomplishments and. feels
that her ilisciplino hns been extremely beneficial.
One of the Astors is reported: to
have said that it is better to be
B'Ortli $50,000 than to lie rich. Tlio
popular idea'of wealth is diilereut
from this, but there is no doubt that
all above an amount whicli can be
taken euro of with comparative
sufety and ease is a serious and often
a dangerous burden, ami that it is
so felt to be Uy Us possessors.
The Philadelphio Times recalls
the pensi veiy iiK-rcstim* circumstance
tliat ''Tihorius diseouragod the
genius who discovered the secret of
mnlleablo glass by beheading him."
Ot course ono can never hn I'uite
certain, how the genius took tho snub
which Tiberius administered to him.
Owing to circumstances not under
his control, after being thus rebuked
bv the Emperor, ho failed to retort
what his feelings were. But very
likely he felt "discouraged,"' At all
events, he never made any more
malleable glass.

There is war against Hunduy trading in the city of Liverpool. The
practice of carrying on business op-
orations thereon Sundays has been
increasing within the last few years.
The stores of butchers and tobacconists stationers and newsdealers havo
all beon keeping open us a regukdi
thing. The law has lately beee. invoked ngainst the praotice, a stabuto
of the days of Charles II.(!)' being
relied on to obtain convictions,, and
on h. recent day thirty-fiyo tradesmen wero summoned, hr Sunday
selling. Tlie prosocutiona have
brought out some exceedingly inter-
eating arguments in defence of keeping open on.Sunday, and reveal un
ingenuity which is capable of local
applica (tion. The butcher's shops,
wo are told, ure essential to the
happiness of the poor man, who
wants to resort to tbem at tho hours
when the surplus stock of meat ia
hiring sold oft'at reduced rates ; tiban
of course tho poor man's pipe thukc
needs lie filled, and so busy h& ho
that his newspaper cannot UfehoUght
on Saturday. And so on and so
forth.- -K<s.    s
An interesting comparison is
made by tho London. Times between the equipment* of the fleet
which assembled; at Spitiicad tho
other day and that of the ships
with which Sfelisoa -won his victories. The Spithoad fleet had t>58
guns ih all- not Including the in-
num&mble 'xrat guns, quick-firing,
and; machine guns, In Kelson's
aime and for many years after each I
man-of-war carried whole tiers of
guns, tho t)uke of Wellington, for
instance, having no less than 131
on hor threo decks. Bui the tatter
were more toys compared with tho
giant breech-loaders of today. The
heaviest shot used on the Victory
was only 68 pounds ; the Victoria
fires an eighteen hundred pound
projectile. The change in tho
manning of fleets is no less marked.
Tho Spithead fleet had an aggregate
of 21,000 men, corresponding, we
aro told, to an aggregate of 80,000
in Nelson's day. Tho whole science
of naval warfare, in fact, has undergone .a wonderful change, and even
now it appears to have reached only
un experimental stage.

PIOUS SHERMANiTES.
S >fefc#*V#
A Pooulior Olaaa of Peoplo Living
In Alabama.
'l'h' y Are Honest-. Temperate. Wash One
A-iotlicr-s Feet, Bat Never Out Tholr
Hulr — Religious Enthusiasts "
Full of Quaint Conceits.
Tiio othor day a rough-looking countryman walked into a general supply store In
this city and stated to thopropriotor that he
wuu ted to purchase $100 worth of Roods on
credit, writes a Birmingham (Ala) cor-
rcKi'ondent of tho Cincinnati Commercial-
Gazette. The man wore his hair long
like a woman, aad his beard reached almost to bis waist. His clothes were all
niudeathome; they were ill-fitting and of
the cheapest material, and altogether he
wii* a strange specimen of humanity,     ■ i
"What is your namo!" asked the merchant, when the man stated hiB business.
"John Smith," answered the countryman.
"When can you pay for the goods)"
"I'll pay you in November, when I soil
my ootton crop."
"All right, Mr, Smith; you oan have tbe
goods,"
The goods wore soon loaded on Smith's
wagon, and he drovo away without giving
thomorchant a note or any kind of security.
"Do you know tho man?" I askea of the
merchant.
' 'Never saw him before."    .
"Will ho pay you for thoso goods!"
"Certainly."
"How do you know!" *",
, "Because he is a Shermanlte. Be is a
member of a remarkable religious society,
nn-Uf ho failed to pay a debt he would be
expelled from his ohurch, and driven from
tho community iu which he lives, ln dls-
graco. I may not see or hear of him again
until next Novembor, but if ho is living he
will como and pay me ovory cent he owes
mo. Tho Shevnmnites all wear their hair
long like this one, and they are easily rec-
ORiii<*ed any where." ..-i.,.-
Jn Leed'a Valley, ln the northwestern
pnrt of this county, thero is a colony of
tihcrmanltes. There aro about onehun*
(trod families, and a happier, more contented peoplo ean not be found in the wor'd.
Their religious rites and ceremonies are
peculiar. Who founded tho sooioty none of
thom seem to know, but it is very old, as
tlio fathers and grandfathers of the present
generation wero Shermanltes. Tbey claim
to follow tho teachings of tho New Testament in spirit and letter, and thoy believo
Mint only Shormanites will inborit the
Kingdom of Heaven. They have ohurohes
uud preachers and worship in a manner
simitar to many oShor religious sects, One
of their peculiar rites is tho washing of
feet. A foot-washing service Is held once
every month, at which the preacher washes
tlio feet of ovory member of tho church.
Tlio members then in turn wash tho feet of
tiio preacher and of oaoh other. This sorvico
usually lasts all day, being interspersed
with singing nnd praying.
Members of all other religious denomination'' they regard as heathen, and send
iniKiiionaries among them instead of sending them to foreign lands, Shormanites
never out their hair or beard, claiming that
Christ nover patronized barber-shops, in
every homo may be found ancient wood*
cutu representing Christ and HIb Apostles
as wearing long hair and beard. A Shor-
munite who falls from graco Is lost forever
and he must always livo up to certain moral
and business rulos which are very rigid.
To [iay all debts Ib a part of their religion.
Ni» man ean bo saved, thoy say, who does
not pay his neighbor what ho owes him.
They never charge one another interest on
a loan, and no written acknowledgment of a
debt, is ovor given. Tho word of a Sherman Ito is his bond, and It becomes his
sacred duty for him to fulfill overy promise
imtdo. They aro an industrious people bo-
cinit'o industry is a. part of thoir creed.
Tiio Shermanltes are all small farmers,
but most of thom own thoir farms and
some stock. Many of. them are compelled
to purchase a few supplies In this oity evory
summer, for whleh they are unable to pay
uaali. Whoro their peculiar religion is
known thoy have no troublo in obtaining all
the credit they want. Thoy givo no notes
or security of any kind, but merchants who
havo dono business with thom for yenrs
havo never lost a dollar due from a Shor*
manlto customer. Their preachers accept
no pay for preaching tho Gospel, working
on their farms during the week aa hard as
any member of the Church, Divorce
Is something unknown among theso
people, and tho women are all
virtuous. Drunkenness is another vloo unknown among those people, as they follow
to tho letter tho advico of tbe Apostle, who
suid: "Be temperate in all things." Their
homes are models of neatness and comfort,
nnd tho stranger is always welcome within
their gates. It would bo almost an insult to
tender tbem payment for food, lodging or
nny other favor shown a stranger. Tho
Shermanltes mako fow converts to thoir
peculiar religion, but they lose no members,
and seem happy and contented In simply
holding their own. *■*.■ ■$$#
Ono remarkable thing about thom is that
thoy will havo nothing to do with courts
and lawyers, A law-suit in whioh a Shor-
manlto was plaintiff ean not bo found on tho
court records of this country j Tboy nover
seek legal advico unless it is actually necessary. All their differences aro settled by
arbitration, mutual frionds boing the arbitrators, and tho civil courts aro never
undor auy circumstances resorted to. They
seek In every way possible to avoid jury
ditty or being summoned as witnesses In
miy oases. They take no part in polities,
nud a Shermanito was never known to hold
im office of any kind. Some of them vote at
ovory eleotion, but thoy have no campaign
■:. .bs in their community, and every man is
allowed to voto as ho pleases. Many of
tliom novor voto at all.
Tlio flrst settlors of this Shermanito colony camo to Alabama from South Carolina
uid Georgia nbout forty-fivo years ago, The
oldosti of them say their ancestors came
originally from Now England, but thoy are
ii mibio to say wbo was Uto founder of their
socioty,
IT WAS  A MOUSE.
Uut for ii Mumont Ite Thought It Was the
I.''iili--l*xt>vot'iil Ilui'ifl'ir.' .,
Of course yuu have boon aroused suddenly In tliu night by some mysterious sound
in your cluui.bct', jumped hastily from your
warm and comfortable couch and thon sud-
douly awoke with a bewildering sense of
mit knowing whoro you woro, This samo
tiling hiippoued to a West sido young man
thu other night, says the Chicago Herald,
W hen fully awakoned he sat .quietly on tho
odgo ef Uio bed and listened acutely for. tho
sound tlmt nt first had alarmed him. Soon It
came uguln. It was as though aomo one,
was tiptoeing softly across the carpet, The'
young man remembered that la tbe
further corner of the room stood a loaded
shotgun, It hod not been discharged since
tho war, but he realized that the charges in
war times wero much higher than
thoy are now, and he argued that
thero must bo onough loft to
kill a burglar, So ho cautiously
folt his way across tbo room until he hod
secured tho gun. Carefully cocking it he
suddenly lit the gas and turned to meet the
burglar, But thero was no ono in Bight
Laying tho illusion to his imagination he
replaced the loaded gun and crawled back
between tho warm sheets. Justus he was
dozing off he again hoard tho sounds of
footfalls, and again he solzed tho gun and
turned up the gas, There was no ono else
iu tho room. Thoroughly mystified, ho resolved to investigate. Ho sat ou tlio edge
of tho bed, allowing the gas to burn nt full
head, mid listened. Boon ho heard the
sound again. It oamo from banbath the
ciu'jjot. Weeing u wriggling lump In tbo
hi.-ldlo of a big pattern ho brought his gun
flown on it heavily. Thoro was a wild
squeak and all wus still. Tho mystery wns
solved, Beneath tho carpet was a pudding
of Btriuv, and a venturesome mouse had
heni pr.ling out single straws for bis nost
in Ids holo near.by, Iiiach jerk ho gave a
Bti'uwpi-oduoad tho sound of n tight foot
fall on tlio carpet-land as ho jurkod rogu
lurly tlio Illusion of a cautious burglar was
produced.        .*•«.-..■-■

Every curve of the gloaming whito
every lino of the slender body was rovailod
by the clinging, transparent folds, whioh
only heightened the ]ovoliuo3s they could

Women's chatter huBhod as tboy appr

girl. "I could bo always good if it hung in

boy camo banging into tho room with tibun
In one hand aud a greasy newspaper in tho

to your man, and ia ho any better, ho snys."
"He is worse," answered tiio woman,
apathetically, as Bho took up tho papor and
went into another tiny room whore, on a
ragged couch, a man with consumption was
watching hor with burning eyes. Sho
turned the paper to tho art notes, and, after
a littlo search, suid: "Tho picture has sold

ond it was so hard and mado ray arms ache

ONE  IN A MILLION.
But tho Man Afrul-1 to Dlo Tools Xt and
Saved Mouto.
As wo got down in tho neighborhood of
Capo .Halteras, writes a New York Hun
man, it oamo on to blow great guns, and tho
sous wore tremendous. Thesteamer pitched
and tossed and rollod in a way to fnghtou
ovory body, and about mid-afternoon a
3look-looking young man pitched across tho
cabin to tho oofa on which I was sitting and
asked:
"Do you think we can pull through!"
"It'a doubtful."
"Good cliaaco of going down, oh!"
"Bost in the world." .->-
"Woll, I hive a few dollars in counterfeit
money with ine—some that wna passed on
mo—and 1 guess I'll throw It overboard.'■
Ho pitched across to his Btutdrobra and
probably gob rid of it. In- about half an
hour ho como for mo again und asked:
"IFiiat do you think nf it now!"
J'Slto seams to bo luboritig heavily, ond
I'm oxpoctlng to hoar that she hue sprung
a Icr.ic."
"Is that bo! I havo two or thrcopadrs of
cards in my valise. That might count
iignli-.st mo in tho othor world, and I guosa
I'll heave'om out."
Ho was gone about a quarter of nn hour
this timo, and as ho staggered up to tlio
sola again tho steamer almost stood on
cud.
"It's growing worso, isn't it!" ho inquired.
"Much worse."
"And wo ought to prepare for death?"
"Wo had."
"I-lbo!lcvaI havo two or threo bogus
bonds with mo belcngrng to a friend who
sometimes works a ebnfldotice racket. I
guess they'll hove to go, too."
Whilo Ito was gono I Bb.ift.od my position,
and it, was half an hour beforo ho found
mo again, Tho Bteamer was rolling and
pitching, aud ho was very whito ns hom-
quircd'
"Wtmt arc tha chances now!" -.
"Ouo in ami.lton."
I did hot sco him again until wo wore
nearing Wilmington. Tbon I caught him
trying to work tho throe-card*raeIcot on it
South Carolina planter, and I called him
aside:
"You seem to liavo rocovored allyourlost
oheok, my friend."
"I lta ve—yos."
"Whilo you thought thore was danger of
our going down, you woro vory penitent."
"Just so."
"I thought you throw overboard every
thing belonging to your profession'"
"Not'qulte, I was uoiiig to,'but when
you said wo had ono chance in it million, I
took it, and saved monto-untl if you'll lut

SEARCHING FOR GEMS.
How the Work of Collection Is Carried on
.. lu Coy Ion.
A correspondent of tho Ceylon Observer
ln a recent issue of that journal describes
tho district in Ceylon in whioh gems have
hitherto beon most commonly found and
tho method employed by tho natives in dig*
ging for them. Uatnupurn, or tho "city of
gems," is tho center of a district twenty to
thirty miles squaro, in almost all of whicli
a stratum of gravel Bix foot to twenty feet
under tho surface exists. Throughout this
aroa gem pits nro to bo Boon noar tho
villages—somo being worked now, others
being abandoned. Tho natives work thoro
ln companies of six or oight, and pay a
rupee for tho privilogo of working a certain
allotment, whero thoy bogln by marking off
a squaro of about ten foot. After removing about throo feet of soil tho sounding-
rod—a piece of Iron about one-half inch in
diameter and six feot long — is used to
sound for gravel. If successful, tho digging is begun in earnest till about four feet
deep.--, On tho socond day gravel Is
takon "out by moans of baskets handed
from v ono man to another till ail
within the squaro is excavated. On
the third dny it is all washed in
wicker baskets by a circular jerking motion, whioh throws out all the surplus light
stono and rubbish, till a good quantity of
heavy gravel is loft in tho bottom, whicli is
carefully examined, Thoro is hardly n
basketful that does not contain somo gems
of inferior valuo, which aro usually sold by
tho pound for about nino rupoos. Should no
valuable stones bo found another pit Is
sunk, and so on till ono or perhaps two or
three rosily valuable gems nro unearthed,
when the work Is stopped, and the .wholo
party goes oft to Ratnapura with tho prizes.
If these are worth, say a fow thousand rupoos, thoy are kopt secret and only shown
to ono or two mon of monoy, who make tlio
owners on advance and look after tho safo
custody of the precious stones. Thoy then
-ramble and drink for some time till
inothor advance becomes necessary, nud bo
in till half the valuo Is obtained, Thon the
mrty, with the mortgagee, proceeds to Colombo, or Italutara, whero rich Moor trod*
■rs are summoned to purchase, and tlio
,'ems soon find thoir way to London. Tlie
-■■iioral publio know nothing about these
ransaotlons, and vnluablo gems aro never
loard of In Ceylon, and scarcely seo lhe
:Kht of day till they reach Bond stroot. The
mil ves have a great f oar of exposing their
indfl till thoy aro Bold, and thoy havo moid
ixtraordinary, superstitious ideas about
■flowing tbem. This systom hot boon in
rogue for centuries paBt.     i^w^

While Constable Smith was taking a
iiiViiii'i.L stroll lust night ho camo upon a S'ickeen Indian named Charley,
fho was spending the night alfresco
in an empty wagon. Charley waa well
loaded with gin inwardly, nud refused
to walk, ao the constable took him on
his buck und marched to tho lockup.
During tliu walk Charley fell asleep,
southed by the musicial voice of the
constable and on arriving at- tho
civic hotel tho noble Ktickeen refused
tu ivakiu. A sudden dump iuto tlio
sand, howover, roused him, and lio
consented to occupy berth No, 3 on
the lirst Out for which bo paid $5 this
murning.

Chief of Police Pearce has carefully
and minutely examined tho Salvation
Army big drum, patches, cords and
drumsticks, and, aftor boiling down
the results of his investigation, carefully skimming tho light aurface matter, and aoiontificully analyzing the
residue, he finds the thunders of tho
instrument a public nuisance- and declares it ahould be suppressor!. The
chief advises Iho council to consult the
legal fraternity ou the beat means uf
stilling the noiao, probably thinking if
the legal thunders nre put in opposition to the Salvation music, tho rhapsody of tho former will finltlly suppress
tho medley of tho lattor. Let tho figlil;
begin; it will bo a glorious contest.

The executive of the Dominion riflo
association met ut Ottawa on Saturday
night tu consider the protest from tho
president of tho British Columbia riflo
association ngninBt tho British Columbia marksmen being considered as a
representative team from the provinco.
It was decided there wns nothing on
tho rules of (ho association to prevent
tho men shooting; but if it wna true
that two wero not efficient, thoy will
not be coinpotont to compete for Wimbledon, It will bo impossible nlso for
thom to compote ns a provincial team,
as thu requisite number ia not present.
The Westminster riflo team did not go
to Ottawa ns n provincial team, so
there wna not tho slightest necessity of
the president of tho B. C. 11. A. getting excited and Bonding a protest to
Ottawa, If tho president uf tho B. C.
R, A. had taken tho troublo to inquire, lio wuuld have learned that tho
Westminster men wero proud to go ns
ainglo representatives of tho royal city,
claiming no higher honor thui this.
Under tho circumstances tho protest
was very ill-timed.

The World hm sifted again, on the
superintendent of provincial police
question, bub will not como out
squarely and acknowledge thu vacancy
must bo tilled, nnd that the fittest
candidate should receive tho appointment. The CoLr.MniAN supports Mr.
Moresby fur uno reason only, namoly,-
that ho ia tho best qualified by experience to hold tho oflice, Tho
World is a littlo astray concerning Mr.
Moresby's duties, Ho ia governor of
the provincial gaol, uud aa such in responsible for tho discipline if tho institution. But at the samo time he is
expected to do outside duty as well,
often being forced tu absent himself
from tho city fur a week or moro to |
perform the duties tho late chief of police wub unequal to. Mr. Moresby, on
more than ono occasion, haB been cal*
led into requisition to work up cases
on Vancouver Island, and had his
services been moro generally brought,
into uso tho onds of justice would
have been much better served, One
of the lust thinga Mr. Itoycroft did
beforo leaving waa to order Mr. Moresby to do no more outside work, a very
unwise move, us tho latter waa thon
ot work on an important Indian enso
that would certainly havo resulted in
bringing eovoral murderers to justice.
11 is not fair to expect a man to hold t wo
office*- nnd givo both all tho care thoy
deserve, and it will bo a bad day for
justice if Mr. Moresby ia shelved to
make room for a less competent man,

Tho lacrosse club meets this ovening
at the usual place to tako into cousid*
oration the proposed viait to Kamloops
on the 10th hint,, to tako part in. tho
tournament. It is important the team
should gu to Kamloops, providing Uio
first twelve will be ablo to get away,
but it will nut do to risk our laurels
with n team partially composed of boo*
ond twelve men. It is to bo hoped, if
it ia decidud tu send tho team, that
employers will bo patriotic enough to
put no ubstaclo in tho «ay of nny of
tho playors who may bo chosen for tho
tournament. Every member of the
club is expected to bu at thu meeting
to-night.
The annual mooting of the foot bnll

Tho royul eity is justly proud of hor

support from tliu citizens in general.
The Westminster clubs hnvo dono
wonders thia yenr, and thoy must bo
encouraged tu retain the proud standard of victory. Lot our citizens become honorary members of tho clubs,
