THE CHARLESTON A FAILURE.
Washington, Sept. 4,—Prom the report recoived to*day by the naval
bureau from tho chief engineeer, it appears thn now cruiser Charleston, built
by tho Union Iron Works, of San
Francisco, for the government, failed
to como up to contract requirements.
Tho report states tho horsepower developed by tho ship in the recent ulli-
cial run will probably not be reported
above 6,700 by the trial board in their
oftloinl report. During the run of six
hours, two hours more than required
by contract, sho worked in excellent
manner, no heating boing perceptible
in the machinery. During tho extra
two hours sho worked better than during tho required time. This is cited
asa proof of her excellent staying
powors, Should the figures of tho
official report agree with thoso of the
ono recoived by the steam engineering
bureau, tlio contractors will bo subject
to a penalty of 830,000, and a rate of
§100 for oach horsepower not developed. Muoh disappointment is expressed in naval circles at the failure of the vessel. Tho contractors
made unusual efforts to make hor
trial a success, even going so fur
as to import hand picked Welsh coul
for uso in her furnace, The vessel was
built on '.he plans of tho Naiuiiwnknn,
the Japaneso cruiser uf En ■•lish dcaign
which had 24 trials boforo sho was accepted by tho Japan government.

THE HUSTEDE AFFjVIR. ,
Ottawa, Sopt. 3.—Tho department
of justice has received .1 despatch from
Lieutenant-Governor Nelson, of British Columbia, reporting the action of
Admiral Houeage in ordering away
and removing the Gorman barque, J.
A. Hustedc, from her anchorage iu
Esquimalt harbor, and asking for instructions, No answer has beon sent,
ae tho mattor will be laid before tho
privy council. Hon. H. Tupper,
minister of marine, said tho question
which arises appears to be this ; "Are
or arc not tho ships of hor majesty's
navy exempt from tho instructions issued by the Canadian government's
harbor master? At present no vessels
aro exempted from these instructions,
nnd all aro treated alike. The ships
uf her majesty's navy and the ships of
the Dominion of Canada aro oxompted,
however, from paying harbor duos,
but theso are tho only exemptions.
Now tho question arises, nre her majesty's navy excepted from coming
under these rules and instructions.
This is a now point. It has nover
nriseu boforo, and now it will havo to
be settled." Hon, Mackenzie Bowell
said ho know that Esquimalt was a
customs port, but the cose 111 point
had not come under his notico up to
tho prosent time. Ho could not say if
the port was wholly under naval direction. Sir Adolpho Caron had not
considered the mutter, hut thought
the action of tho admiral waa extraordinary , ^^^^^^^^^^^
Growing It caul Mully less.
A Washington dispatch says: In
commenting ou tho status of the
Chiuose in British Columbia, Colonel
Stevens, of Victoria, in his report tn
the department, says: The number of
this race, formerly so great in this province, at one timo estimated at 10,000
or 20,000, lifts largely decreased, at
present tho Chineso population, as
given from an official quarter, being
8,000. Nearly one-half of them, I
think, are in this city. Their immigration hither haB practically ceased.
During 1888 and the last two months
of 1887, 537 arrived nt Vancouver on
Orient steamers, and probably two-
thirds of thom hold United States customs return certificates and entered
the United States mostly at San Francisco during that period. According to
the customs of this city, 040 arrived
in small numbers from various ports.
Thoro have boon no arrivals at any
port iu the province direot from Chins,
Bave those recorded abovo. Although
tho business of Chineso firms has, except in opium, greatly decreased there
according to tho directory for 1888,
still there are somo twenty linns given.
Of tho laboring class many find periodical work in tho salmon camierirs on
tho mainland, at the lumber mills, nt
gardening, etc. Some 400 or 500 find
employment ns domestics. Somo of
thom find their wuy illegally into tho
United Statea from time to time, but
not in any considerable numbers.
The Standard.
The ovening Standard has suspended publication. Ou Saturday last,
after tlio rogular issue of tho pupor,
tho employees wero notified thnt thoir
services would not bo required on
Monday, as no further issue of the
paper would .bo made under the old
management. Tho demise of our evening cotemporary has beeu expected fur
some time, and consequently the announcement of its doath will not take
tho publio by surprise. It hns bud as
an evening publication, a short but
useful enreer. It changed from a
morning to an evening paper about a
yoar ago for tho purposo of opposing
thu Times politically us woll us commercially, I hough it never succeeded
in winning the confidence of tho public, or in nlied iiig in tho slighest do-
giee tho standing and influeitco of this
papor. That it was a foolish undertaking tho stockholders who havo lost
all tho money Ihcyput into the enterprise will now bu prepared to admit,
and if tho lesson has boon well learnt
the lifo nnd doath of lho evening -Sfun*
dard will not have been in vain. It
is not our intention to say, "wo told
you so," or ovon to point a moral"
forthe benefit of thoso well moaning
but ill-advised persons, found in overy
community, who think it m only necessary to start a paper to moot with financial success. There will be others,
perhaps, just a. oagor t-> own a paper
who will try lho e x peri mon t again,
nnd it jb no business of ours to deter
them. Hat it must bo apparent to tho
reading nnd advertising public that
the field for two ovening papers is too
limited to pormit of both being successful, and that it is only a qut'Btmn
of the ultimate survival of the fittest.

STILL STUBBORN.
London, Sept. 2.—-A deputation of
prominent Bhip owners, headed by Sir
D. Currie, called upon the committee
representing tbe dock owners, to-day,
and again urged the adoption of the
proposals submitted by tlie ship own-
era yesterday for the settlement of the
strike, which was that Bhip owners
should engage and pay the men. Mr.
Norwood, chairman of the joint dock
committee, replied that the companies
could not accede, but were willing to
furthor discuss all questions with the
committee of ship ownen. Sir Donald
Currie said he regretted that the dock
company eould not give the owners a
definite answer, and expressed his
willingness to submit tho question for
discussion by the joint committees of
tho dook companies and ship owners.
He requested that tho companies express their views in writing to bo submitted to the ship owners at a meeting whioh would be held later in the
day. Norwood assented. This decision destroys all chance of arranging
the differences betweon tho strikers
and the dock owners to-day; meanwhile the temper of the mon is becoming hourly inure embittered and trouble is feared.

To thoso who are' interested in the
welfare of this provinoe, and more particularly lumbermen, a visit to the new
Ross-McLaren Mills will amply repay
them for the time spent in making it;
but to thoso who hare not the opportunity a description of the mill and its
surroundings may be of interest.
Tho oompany have started out with
the intention of building a modern
mill with all the improvements known
to mill men of the present diy, and
sparing no expense. When it appeared
to the proprietors that a liberal oxpen*
dtiuro of monoy would ultimately be
to the advantago of all concerned,
btarting out with this idea in view, it
maybo easily surmised the work is
being done in a solid and substantial
manner.
But in order that they might be
fully assured that their ideas would be
carried out to the letter tbey placed
the superintendence of their affairs in
chaigo of Mr, Isaao Kendall, of Ottawa, a gentleman who haa had long
and successful experience in mill building and operation on the Ottawa river.
To him belongs the honor of initiating
tbe design of the mill proper, HU
chief aim seems to be to secure the
greatest possible amount of strength
from all material brought into use by
the workmen, and excellence of workmanship is a suro passport to his favor,
To Mr, F. W. McCrady, mechanical
engineer, of New Westminster, is entrusted the drawing of plans and laying
of designs, nnd a moro competent or
thorough man In his branch of business
would bo hard lo find. His opinion
of an intricate piece of machinery is
au authority in British Columbia, his
decisions being seldom questioned; to
meet him is » pleasant treat. We
would recomend mill men to mako his
acquaintance.
There are in all about one hundred
workmen engaged in tho work of construction, tlio greater portion of thom
being millwrights and carpenters. The
charge uf the skilled workmen is entrusted to Mr. John Wilson, of Muskoka, a man well skilled in mechanical
trades. He seems to have won tho respect of all tho employees, judging
from the ready and willing way in
whioh they obey bis commands. This
gontleman has had charge of large enterprises of this kind in the cast, and
has established a reputation there beyond question, Mr. John McLaren
iu person takes chnrgo of the finances
and bookeeping, and devotes bis entire time to the management of his
department, which is no sinocuro
berth.
A full description of the mill and the
buildings in connection would take
up too muoh spaco for an article of
this kind, but we will endeavor to give
a brief history of the ooncern and a
general idea of tho magnitude of the
enterprise. The company originated
in the Ottawa Valley, and is composed
of some of the wealthiest nnd most
successful business men thero. These
gentlemen visited tho coast and took
up timber limits of vast extent in the
Now Westminstor, Chilliwack, and
other districts, and aftor mature consideration decided to locate one mill on
tho banks of the Frasor River, about
throe miles up the rivor from Now
Westminster, There thoy have pur*
chased a block of four hundred acres
of land.
At the time of purchase the land
was lying almost in a state of nature,
but the visitor to-day will find it well
cleared and improved. The location
seems peculiarly well adapted for mill
purposes, about one balf of it being a
NUMBER 66
level prairie. This will fund, li ample
room for a lumber piling ground, railway conveniences, stores dwellings,
and other auxiliary building*!, which,
we learn, it is tho intention of the
compnny to erect as soon as the mill
propor is thoroughly finished, aud in
operation, among them being a shingle
mill and sash and door factory.
The foundation of the mill la laid on
piles, the number of them being seemingly beyond computation—iho boiler
houso alone having more thai} six hundred in its foundation. On these are
laid timbers fifteen inches square and
seventy-six feet long, being the width
of the mill. Across these, for tho
whole length of the mill—four hundred and fifty feet—aro placed live
rows of streak sills; theso carry the
posts (for the lowor storey), ono hundred and eighty in number, hoy being
of tho sumo sized timber as ihu plates
nud sills, and fifteen feot 1 ix iuchoB
long. Thoy are braced and toe-braced
in every conceivable manner, and scorn
well able to carry tha upp>*r storey,
where the heavy machinery will run.
Thia storey is a model tor mill men;
the end down tno river is open on
threo Bides for 7C feot, and is support*
ed by a beautiful system uf truss work,
which :-i-pears amply ablo to support
any m eight that may bo placed upon
it. In faot, the wholo roof (whioh is
covered with iron) is a com],lei e truss,
the principal rafters being 10 inches
by twelve, with braces running up
from the beams and truss rods running
through in different places to make an
additional support to the be-ims below.
On the west end the sorting shedB
will be built, dimensions 64x80 feot,
running out on each side of the mill
and built up to Hb full, hoight, making
the whole building appear like tbe letter T-
The mill machinery will be all of tho
most improved kind, Mr. Kendall having travelled ovor the greater part of
Canada, Michigan, nnd the wost to inspect mills in those localities, and lias
adopted all improvements whicli ho
considered would bo of advantage here,
and some of his own inventions will bo
brought intu use for the first time and
will be something unique when applied as a labor saving machine. Tho
saws will consist of one twin circular,
with flaws 72 inches each in diauieiar,
one gang capable of sawing a piece of
timber four feet square, and a band
saw, the first yet introduced in British
Columbia. These will be fed bysleam
food, and the lumber will bo handled
by livo rollers. All refuse will be
burnod in an iron furnace of mammoth
proportions, ita diminsions being,
height 146, diameter 2G feet. The
motive power mill consists of threo
engines, with cylinders 24x36 inches
each, and ten steel boilers, each 14 feet
long, sixty-inch shell and 84 three-inch
tubes, combined- cA[facii*ty COO horse-
pi wer. The boiler house is of Btone,
size 40x70 feet—the foundntiou resting
on pilos, and each pair of boilers resting on a separate foundation.
The machinery building will bo firo
proof, and is entirely detatched from
the mill frame. Tho shafting, pulleys,
and small machinery will bo made ami
finished iu tho company'*- • i-i&chino
shops, they having now in operation
ono large planer, one turning Inthe,
two drills, and olio bolt cutter. This
machinery was'made by .Mm B-uttuni
& Co., Dundaa, nnd the mill machinery by Wm. Hamilton & Son, of Peterborough.
The company havo already commenced grading their siding from tho
C. P. 11., whioh will havo switches
running to all parts of their yard and
along the rlvor front, furnishing them
au outlet for their lumber by rail, as
well as by ocean, They expect to
have everything completo and in operation by February 1st, 1890, und thon
tho visitor will seo the handsomest,
best built, and most completo mill on
the Pacific coast, if not in  the world.

King Leopold of Belgium is not

An Italian savant, Dr. Malincon-

tho elixir of Prof. Brown-Scquard.
He has just discovered tho microbe

length of time that this hoary headed old microbe has been in conceal;
ment the value of Dr. Malinconioo's
discovery can be easily appreciated.
It is stated that Sir Morrel Mackenzie has deoided to set apart a

The disposal of The Columbian
Exhibition Fund by tlio meeting of
subscribers lust night will, wo think,
"   provo satisfactory to nil concerned,
ovon to those of thn subscribers who
wero not in attendance,   The different appropriations wero nil within
the moaning of tho   terms  of   the
subscription as  published  in  this
paper at iho head of the list of subscribers, and  fair  apportionments
wero made, it will bo admitted,  to
the sports, the  grounds,   and   the
exhibition propor.   Now thnt   the
disposition of the fund hns   beon
satisfactorily settled, the   subscriptions are being paid in quito rapidly,
uud thero is  no  reason   why   the
Bank of  Montreal,   which  is   the
treasurer for tho fund,  should   not
receive tho whole amount within a
weok or two,   Thero should be no
delay now, as tho exhibition will bo
held in less than n month, and the
various committees, etc., should not
be hampered in their arrangements
for lack of funds.   The   collecting
committeo for tho   celebration,   wo
are informed, aro meeting  with  u
liberal response from many   of  our
citizens,    although    the   licensed
victuallers  havo  announced  their
intention, we believe, not  to  givo
anv thing towards the   sports,   for
reasons of their own.   As soon as
the subscription list   for   the  colebration is a littlo  more  completo,
we shall  publish  the  names   und
annunts, which will show somo very
liberal donations on the part of some
of ou;* citizens.   As will be seen by
a   report  elsewhere, the  directors
antl   officers  of   the  Agricultural
Association  also   had   a   meeting
last  night,   and   transacted  some
important    business.     Ono   good
movo   that   we    must    commend
the d-rectors for was the resolution
reconsidering tho §50 license  for
sta is on the grounds, and making it
ius,e[d$25.   It will also be observe* t.'mt a supplementary prize list
is (3 :>e prepared and issued by tho
ass >ci ition, which will   be  a  good
thi lg in every way, and will supply
some deficiencies   thut   might   bu
found iu tho regular prize list.   Taking iuto covisiderution all matters in
conoc-jtion with tho exhibition nnd
celebration combined, a grand suc-
ocs  may now bo reasonably   tnitici-
paUd.
DAILY BRITISH OOLPMBUN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SEPTEMBER i, 1889.
Apian is on foot, says an oxchawe
Tho   Post-InteUifjcncer   takes    a
very sensible and fair view of tho
Behring Sea question, nnd   in  tho
following succinct but comprehensive
statement of the case it expresses
tho viows on the   subject   of fully
three-fourths of tho press and tho
peoplo of tho United States, who
aro by no moans in accord with the
preposterous attitude of the administration on this question.    Hays the
Intelligencer:   Thero   can   I ie    no
doubt that the business   and   ooro-
mercittl interests both of Alaska ami
the whole Pacific   coast   would   be
better served by removing all limitations from fishing und trading in
Behring Sea-   For twenty years our
government has practically enforced
its theory of absolute ownership and
control of these waters, chiefly because until now nobody has attempted to contest  its  claim,   und  the
result has beon to prevent anything
like  development   either  of  commerce in Behring Sea or settlement
of the lands in   its   vicinity.   The
whole region, an empire of   land ;
and ocean, bas been held as a gamo
preserve by n   fur  company.   The
arrangement with this company, by
which it onjoy3 monopoly privileges,
was wholly outside of the natural
and established lines of  American
policy.   In theory it wns Imd and
it practice it has boen no better, for
to maintain its side of tho bargain
the government has had to spend
annually double the amount of rental
it In 3 received.   It is claimed that
if the monopoly system   should   be
abandoned, it would involve annihilation of the fur seal, but we hear
nothing to support this theory.   The
system of protection which has been
employed in dealing with the Alaska
Oompany could easily be upplied if
the sealing privilege wore open to
competition like other kinds of fishing.   But if it be true, if to abrogate
the monopoly arrangement should
in fact destroy the fur seal, still tho
thing should be done.    We have in
the Behring Sea question a curious
set of considerations.   To  protect
'the fur seal, we set  up   an  absurd
theory of ocean dominiou heretofore
denied   by   our    government; we
create ■■. monopoly in  violation  of
established   American policy;   we
maintain this monopoly contract at
greatcoat; we deny our fishermen
the privilege of labouring  in  their
regular calling; wo hold a great sea
olosed against commerce and debar
a vast country, said to hold splendid- agricultural and other resources,
Irom  settlement.   The   thing   is
absurd.   Is the fur seal  more  important than- international  rights,
tban American privileges, tban the
development of a country and the
general; interests of commerce ?
to pierce the Simplon with . a railway tunnel, and it is said that tho
scheme has progressed so far as to
have tho routo laid out and to have
secured a guaranty of 30,000,000
francs. Tho tunnel will havo its
southern mouth in Italy, and that
country will contributo 15,000,000
francs. It is believed that tho
Swiss government will accept the
proposal, and that tho tunnel will
soon be begun. The scheme is of
great importance to Germany and
Italy, both commercially and
strategically. France, Switzerland
and tho Simplon valloy will bo
thrown open to the German government, to the detriment of French
commerce, and in the event of war,
Italy and Germany would bo enabled
to bring troops directly to tho
Franco-Swiss frontier, whioh is
almost unfortified. There can bo
little doubt but that Germany is
hack of this tunnel schemo, it is
thought, and that she is favoring
it chiefly from a military point of
view. A recent writer in onn of
tho English review*?, in an article on
"Swiss Neutrality," has pointed out
the faet that in case of war betwoen
France aud Germany the occupation
of Switzerland by France would be
a severe blow to Germany. 8ays tho
writer : ''Whereas in 1870 the
roctangular frontier which a Swiss
occupation would have given France
extended only from Constance to
Basel, it now extends thirty miles
farther west, to Ffetterhuusen. Tlie
advantages of operating from the
Swiss plain, and so turning the
fortress of Strnsburg and the Black
Forest, are thus clearly greater tlian
thoy were beforo tho treaty of Frankfort, and are in fact so great that
the temptation to profit by them at
tbe expense of Swiss neutrality
would seem likely to prove almost
boy ond tho power of Franco to
resist." In the same article the
writer, who has evidently studied
his subject closely, points out that
the Seventh, Eighth and Twelfth
Army Corps of the Frencli army,
aggregating over 100,000 men,
could bo poured into Switzerland
simultaneously as fast as trains
could be made available; that
within twelve hours after the first
battalion had been put on board tho
train, overy bridgo over the Rhino,
from Basel to Constance would be
seized; that from Pfotterhausen to
Constance the Germans have no
artificial defences and very fow
troops, and that this part of tho
frontier is entirely vulnerable to a
Fronch attack. It can hardly be
supposed that Germ-any is ignorant
of this situation or does not understand tho danger of a French
evasion by the way of Switzerland,
and so it is more than probable
that sho is using her present alliance with Italy for tho purposo of
Hireling this danger in another way,
A tunnel through the Simplon,
under the control of Germany or
hor ally Italy will be an effectual
check to French movi^mt-uts through
Switzerland, as it would give France
enough to do to defend the Franco-

S0TK8 AND COMMENTS,
The companies that use lightning
a;* their raw material do not like the
idea of placing their wires under*
ground, This is natural. Expense
is involved, and hitherto there have
been doubts ns to the success, from
an electrical point of view, of tho
experiment. Chicago has tried the
burial procesa, and the city electrician declares the result satisfactory.
The wpi'kuig rf the wires is good,
and the cost of maintenance is just
two per cent, of whi-t it is with tlie
wires strung c.pon poles.
Tho largest grizzly bear ever
killed on tho Pacifio Coast, says an
exchange, was shot June 22 by old
Trapper llondrix, near the source of
Uiittlo Crook, in Tehama county.
The bear was famous throughout
Northern California as old "Clubfoot," and was the terror of tho
Sierras, For twenty years ho has
seemed to bear a charmed life,
Many human being and hundreds of
cattle, sheep and-hogs liavo fallen
victims to his appetito. Many
parties started out to bag him, but
returned without his hide, Tho
beast weighed, when dressed, 2,300
pounds, the largest animal of this
species ever seen on the   continent.

Man of the Sierras.
IIi*i  Great Feats of Strength— Capturing
n Cub and Dispatching a Foro-
1 oloua She Bear-Death Bis
Only Conqueror,
Auborry Wills, saya tho Fresno (Col)
Expositor, has boen dead a dozon years, but
his phenomenal strength, coupled with his
, dariug exploits in tho Sierras, are fresh in
the minds of pioneers. Asberry was born
in Mariposa County, and at tho age of seventeen years stood six feot and four inches
■ high in hia stocking feet, and Waa at onco
entitled to and received the sobriquet of
the "Butterfly Whale." Tho "Whale" wns
unusually fond of explorations among the
rugged, snow-clad peaks of tho junglcd
. mountains. Ho wbb a man of fine physique,
- proportionately built, an eagle eye and a
clour-cut American profile. His hair and
buird were as black as the raven's beak, and
ho always woro a luxuriant growth of both;
his board, at twenty-three, reached his
wcl Willed bunting-belt, and J havo often
scon him, says tho correspondent, tie on
his sombrero with his mustache Ho bad a
spiu'lUo of humor about him, and bis comma-Kline; prison, bold, daring and aggres-
f-.vGnmko-iipmado him a genoral favorito
in camp.
Ho, like othor phenomenal men, had his
peculiarities, "Old-Holl-in-the-Brush" and
, "Hfiart-Deop" wore ever his companions in
' cunip and on trail "Old-Hell-in-the-Brush"
was a magnificent London twist, riflo-bore
■"■.juii which exactly chambered an ounce
bull It was an old-fashioned muzzle-loader,
woi^hlng eighteen pounds, but It never
wont back on its credentials, as Indicated
by its name, whon in tho hands of the
-Whale. "Heart-Deep" was a tremondous
steel two-edged dirk weighing eleven
pounds, which tbe Whale could wield as
uusily aB I a pen-knife. These two weapons which ho had thus grimly christened
wore his constant companions while traversing the mountain ranges from; Mineral
King to Mount Lyell.       •-     -a-*
Atony and thrilling were the daring encounters which could be related of blm during his twelve years of mountaineer lifo in
Fresno County.
On one occasion, whilo camped at a
meadow on tho south fork of Kings riyer,
ho found it necessary to fence off a pasture
> for his inustunRS. He and his companion
i wero felling trees for tbat purpose ."when,
by some miscalculation, a tree two feet in
diameter fell on his companion, crushing
him to the earth. But tbo Whale was equal
to tho emergency. Throwing his giant
strength into his arms he lifted tho leaden
trunk from off the prostrate form of his unfortunate friend. His friend died from the
injury, but his prompt action in removing
tba tree allayed muoh of his pain, and gave
tli- na who know tho Wholo on example of
Ills muscular strength, which won the
pl.'-dits und praise of the people throughout bho sparsely settled country.
Tlie Whale's lifting weight was nine times
hi'i own,or 1,SG0 pounds, Atanothertimoho
idi'jilayedevon greater strength and won-
di-L-iul presence of mind. He and Frank
Lewis wore oa tbo middle fork of Kings
liver prospecting for gold and silver.
Ono evening about dusk, when nearing
cumPi tho Whale espied a cub boar fully six
months old uud weighing upward of two
hundred pounds. Tho cub was asleep on
lop _ii a slanting bowlder. Wills determined
nt unco to capturo the beautiful specimen
alive.
"iJ-jttergivo him a little load morphine
and burn a littlo saltpeter behind it," re-
nni,rued Frank, "touiakohiniBlcopaoundcr."
Bub tho Whale wouldu'tllston toit. Frank
got on tho pinnacle of a neighboring tree,
iso, its he said, he coald seo just how Wills
anight hold of tho cub. Wills grabbed tbo
aiiiiii.il by both hind feet, and, startled thus
from its lair, tho Wbalo was soon convinced
thii! '.chad a largo and powerfulbrutoto
contend with. The cub set up a hideous
yelling, and, showing fight, summoned its
fyoung strength perhaps for tbo first time to
Lcope with its new-found foo. Tho bowlder
rwiii.; slanting and slick, making footing un-
[suro, and down its declivitous sido rolled
kuuu and bear. A thick copse of yerba
biiena and fern received the mysterious
'couple into its wild retreat-*- When ft foot*1
'ing was reached Wills *m«W top, but tho
r desperate animal by its orles bad warned
.the ferocious mothor of its peril. Frauk
■from his porch attempted to pour hot lead
[into tho approaching boast, uow not more
, than fifty yards away and nearing tbo spot
tweuty feet ut a bound.
, Tho Whale took in tho situation. It took
i both hands to overpower the cub,- what was
[he to doi Thore was no timo to thcomo.
'Swinging the oub as a boy would a cat, ho
(Struck tho mother full ln tho mouth with
the cub's head. The boar fell stunned to
iciirUi and tho cub slipped from tho W bale's
grr.sp bleeding and helpless. Quicker than
you could ovon think the circumstance in
rehearsal, trusty "heart deep" had dono his
work. The oub and mother had met tbo
enemy and they were hia'u.
Frank cautiously descended from tho upper
tier of thu wild amphitheater, and spent tho
romuindcr of tho night in trying to find tho
piacu In the animal's anatomy that the leaden messenger from tho rifle had penetrated
ou Us mission of death; but ho found only a
wide, deep gash through whioh eleven
pounds of stool, obeying the, influcnco of a
giant's muscle, had served notico of eject*
ment upon the ohaln of lifo.
'iho Whala mot with but one onemy to
whom lio succumbed. In tho spring of '73
mountain fever seized hia powerful framo,
his miud departed, and soon the reaper
wrapped his thick, mysterious mantle of
eternity about him and the Whale was no
moro; On tho left bank of tho groat Kings

A Story of Edwin Booth That Is Good
Enough to lie Truo.
-Onco during the days of bis early strug*
iIub, says tho Baltlmoro American, Booth
was "barn-storming" down in Virginia at a
place culled fjeo'a Landing, Tho improvised
■liioator was a tobacco warohouso.nnditwas
Y owded by tho planters from miles around.
wth und bis companions bad arranged to
Si tho weekly steamer expected to call
s at night, aod betweon tbo acts woro
fey packing up. Tho play was "ThoMor-
inut of Venice," and thoy wero Just going
K for tho trial scone when they hoard
thistle and tho mnuagor oamo running
m say the steamer had arrived and would
i'jtivo again in ten minutos. As that was
■ K'ivonly chanco for a week of gotting
away, i tbey wero in a terrible quaudory.
Tho narrative proceeds: &- .--j**-
"If wo explain matters," sold the man-
ngor, "they will think thoy aro belngchoat-
v'.l und wo shall bave a froe fight Tho only
U:Ing is for you fellows to get up some sort
uf u natural-like impromptu ending of tbe
piece, aud ring down tho curtain. Go right
ahead, ladies and gentlemen, and take
your oue from Ned here," and bo
hurried away to got the luggage
aboard. Ned, of courso, was Bas*
sanio, and ho resolved to rel;
the ignorance of tbo Virginians of'tbose
days to pull blm through (111 right, So,
whon old Georgo Ruf-glos, who was doing
3hylock, began to sharpen his knifo ou his
boot, Booth walked straight up to him and
■uiomnly said: "You are bound to have
your pound of flesh, aro youl"
"You but your life!" said Rugglos,
"Now, I'll make you ono more offer," continued Booth. "In addition to this big bng of
Uu-nts, I'll throw ln two kogsof niggor-
u-ad torbaok, a shot-gun and two of tho
jest coon dogs ln tho State."
"I'm blarmod If I don't do it I" responded
Unlock, muoh to tho approbation of tho
tii'Hance, wbo wore tobaoooralBors and
joon-hunters to a man,
"And to show that there's no Ill-fooling,"
ititln Portia, '-we'll wind up with aVir-

When they got on board of tho steamer,
be cupula, who had witnessed the oonclu-
ilon of tho ploy, renmrkod:

AN   EAST-INDIAN  GHOST.
[t Proved to Ilo a Doa-CoiistrlotorTwoiil-y
Foot in Length.
Almost ovory town or villaffo bas its
haunted houso and the little village settle*
ment of Wanda, in India, was no exception.
Hero a numbor of English officers and their
families live during the warmer months,
roturning to their respective coimnniula
latoron. Tho rumor that Captain Beau*
champ's house was haunted was .circulated
by a servant-a superstitious old English*
man who Imd followed tho Captain all over
tbo world, and wus, ull things considered, a
faithful servitor. Thomas had for somo days
heard curious sounds about tho bouse. At
first ho thought thero were rats or mice in
tho wall Ho waa awakened one night by n
most extraordinary noise. The door-bell
was ringing violently, and a struggling,
writhing noiso in tho wall of tho house-
not in ono pluce, but In several nt once
This wus followed by a complote silence,
and as Thomas sat up ia bed, his hair
threatening to stand on ond, ho was positive ho heard a long-drawn sigh. This was
tho last feather; So, leaping from the
couch, ho rushed to his employer's room and
aroused hlm, avowing thut tho place was
haunted, aiiA a few moments later tho entire household wus iutiio room.
Tho notoriety so cheaply oarned became
exceedingly disagreeable. First camo
strangers, natives uud others, who stood In
front of the houso day and night and looked
at it with wondering curiosity. Matters
stood In this Bhapo for somo daya, when ono
morning a party of jugglers passed through
tbe town and finally vouched tho haunted
houso. As thoro wore a numbor of children
Inthe family tho porfonnors wore invited
into thogroundsand gave nn entertainment.
Finally, as a winding up, one-of thom took
out a small oval basket, having an oriitco iu
tho top, und seating himself near it began
to play a quaint air upon a flute.
After industriously playing for a few moments, says a correspondent of tho Philadelphia Times, up through the holo In the
baskot came tho head of a cobra—ono of the
most poisonous of snakes—up came tho
hideous hoad with its hood that guvo n
malignant appcaranco to the roptilo, and
when twolvo or. fifteen Inches ubove tbo
basket it began to wave to and fro as if In
obedience to the moasuro of tho music.
After 'the snako dance—or tho snake
"charming," as Europeans are wont to call
It—tlio Indian snake-charmer walked around
tho house and among the bushes pointed
out a hole which might have been mado by a
rabbit. To one of the nativo attendants ho
said that for a small sum extra ho would
tako out a cobra which ho thought was in
tbo hole. The English oflicer did not-bo-
licvo It, but willingly submitted to tho experiment, and seating himsolf beforo the
holo tho magician began hia mournful
plaiut.
For fifteen minutes ho kopt up tlio noise,
and then from tha oponing there appeared
tho ugly, hooded head of a cobra. -Anothor
holo was soon found, this being directly at
tho base of tbo wull of tho house. The man
oxomincdita fow moments carefully, and
then began to play upon tho flute.
Hardly had tho group gathered about tho
performer before a most romarkablo noise
camo irom tho houso. First, thero wus a
sound aa of escaping steam; then a sound
of some great body striking tho wall and
rubbing against the timbers. Dust iu
clouds camo from tho holo tuul tlio
"charmer',' started back in terror, overturning tho mnn bohind him. Recovering
himself bo darted at tho holo and thru:.tiny
his arm in drew out, not a cobra, but the
tall of a much Jargorsnakc. Astonishment
was doplctod on tho native's face and hor-
m thoso of many of tno spectators, as
he stood holding the tip of the tail, uud five
foot of tho body wns visible.
For a second tho man hesitated, then regaining his eourago ho shouted iu Hindoo-
stance for the lookers-on to stand baok,
and taking a good grip upon tho tall ho
pulledgradually backward. Ontitcar-io, foot
by foot, inch by inch, fi, 10,15, ill feat-18,
was thero v.o end?—33 feet of quivering
snuko Ilculi us largo us a man's thigh.
A quick jerk now and tho entire monster
was clear—at loast twenty feet iu length-
big enough to swallow a door, and yet hold
by a single man. Tho nativo wna, howover,
not in tho least discouraged. Uo clung to
tho tail, nnd as tho huge reptile turned
toward him with un angry hiss ho gave it a
swinging motion by turning slowly. Gradually ho increased his speed, turning faster
and faster, until ho seemed tho center of a
wheel, tho spokes of which woro tho body
of the python. So rapid waa tho motion
thut . tho onako'o body was perfectly
straight, und it was ovldent that as long ns
the motion could bo kept up tho mnn was
nfo, but if tho monster could reach him ho
would in a moment bo crushed iu the hor-
rlblo folds of tho roptilo.
The lookers-on had long sinco flod, tho
natives had gone shrieking up the street,
tho Englishman alono standing by,but ovon
ho did not know what to do, as it was impossible to shoot the animal ns it waa Hying
around; so ho stood a fow minutos aghast
at tho curious position of tho man.
It booh became apparent I hat the charmer
knew what ho was aboul Not far f nun the
bouse Btood a stout flag-staff, u foot ond a
half through, of solid tcukwood, and toward
to£s ho woo gradually moving, whirling tho
snako faster uud faster. Now he was within twonty-flvoI foet of it, und suddenly it
dawnod on tho few spectators what ho wus
about to do. This was to striko tho bond of
tbo roptilo againBt tho polo. Nearer ho
camo, whirling faster and faster, until tho
replllo stood out liko a whip-lash, ami then,
with a quick step forward, he brought tho
head of the reptile agntnob tho wood Willi ;\
crushing sound. He released his hold uud
tho great roptilo doubled up iu convulsive foldB, digging up tho earth and Bouding
clouds of dust Into tbo uir, finnfly dropping
limp uud lifeless to tho ground.
A wondering crowd soon uurrountled the
dead bou, the now bravo natives expressing
tholr opinions as tn its alao. Ono tiling wns
ovidcnt--thut> hero wus tho "ghoit." The
big snake bad in somo wny obtained entrance to the house, probably'Uirouc'u the
hole in tho foundation, and hud produced
tlio mysterious sounds hoard by tho men.
Tho snakc-churmers bud, ub is their general
custom, placed a harmless cobra m the hole
and boforo thoy Imd ttmu to call It out It
had encountered tho big bou, with tho above

and St Helen's avonuo for tho purpose of
taking tho motor lino for hor bomo. Shu
has opotito and rather youthful figure, but
is about fifty yoars of ago and has been a

who was also a "masher,"., saw hor and approaching asked hor If ho'might not holp

hates dapper young nr-u, and especially
mashers; therefore sho told tho young man
ho might seo her bomo and carry her baskot.
Ho thought bo bad mado an Immense hit,
and be also thought In tho dim light that the
widow was n beautiful young lady, Tho
widow transferred hor basket to tho dap*

A Chineso peddler arrived from
Victoria a few days ago with a large
stuck of small wares, which he immediately o" in nienced selling from
house t > house iu the upper portion of
the city. The unfortunate Celestial
had the temerity to call upon Mrs,
Pource, and the result was that tho
chiof was on his track within a few
hours. Tho wily Celestial waB uot
so easily caught, howovor, nnd it took
Chief Pearce just throe days to locate
him. When asked to hand over hia
license fee Hoi Ping refused, aud it
wop not till ho had rusted in the cooler
for an hour lhat ho consented to hand
over §10, the cost of a peddler's license
fur one week. Tlie chief is determined that if peddlers insist on selling
their wares within the city limits, they
will have to pay the full extent of the
license fee in order to do business.
Urulu Nut Altogether lo Blame.
The health officer paid a visit to the
roynl city bear gardens this morning,
complaints having been mado of the
condition of his worship's surroundings. The owner promises to dispone
of bruin as soon as possible, nnd in the
meantime gives his word that everything shall be cleanly kopt The
health officer found, however, that the
disagreeable odors com plained of arose,
not so much from bruin's heudipiartera
as from a sewer in tbo samo vicinity.
This drain is in a disgraceful condition, and should at unco receive attention. In the rear of the hnur gardons
nud iu rear of the adjacent block is a
collection of garbage, old boxes, bar-
reis, etc., which, aside from Banitary
considerations, do not add much to the
cleanly appearance of tho locality. The
city should pass a stringent by-law, insisting on the removal of such garbage,
twonty-four hours after it has been
placed. Iu tho caso referred t-i, his
lordship bruin, although not adding
by his presence to the beauty of the
street or tiio sweetness of the air, is
not, by any means, tho chief factor in
tin-. Biiuroo uf complaint.

THE EXHIBITION FUND.
Tbe Moling   Lut Night Nnllx ruder ily
i'1-.-i,)-,,-', .>niu- Co l a in hin ti
Exhibition Fluid.
About twenty or twenty-five of tbe
subscribers tu Till* Columbian exhibition fnnd were present at the. meeting
ut the cily hall last night to determine
as 11 thu appropriation of the monoy
subscribed ou the fund.
His worship Mayor Townsend, who
wan-present, was unanimously voted
to tbe chair, uud Mr, L. P. Eckstein
chosen secretary,
The chairman stilted the object of
the meeting, and it was reported that
tho total amount of the fund was 81,-
162.35, which, nfter deducting the $20
subscription of Grant &_ Hagstrom
(wlto hud loft the province) made the
total available amount £1,142.85,
From this again had to be deducted
the $312,85 subscription per ex-Mayor
Dickinson, whioh, being an unexpended balance in Iub hands from former
celebrations, Mr. Dickinson rightly
considered should be handed ovor to
the celebration committee in connection with the exhibition. A final total
of $030 thus remained for tho meeting
to dispose of.
Mr. Thumas Cunningham moved
that §250 be appropriated from this
fund in aid of tlie firemen's tournament to be hold during the exhibition,
If any association wub worthy nud de-
sorving of encouragement it was the
Gremen, who protected our property
and gave ttioir services free.
After a little discussion as to whether the terms ol tho subscription would
admit of thia appropriation, the motion
was carried unanimously,
Mr. G. D. Brymner suggested that
$250 bo appropriated towards tho exhibition and athletic grounds, end that
tho remainder be handed over to tho
agricultural association to increase
their prizes, etc.
Mr. T. R. Pearson, secretary of tho
association, who was presont, stated
that on account of tho large expenditure made by tho city council on the
park nnd grounds, the usual grant of
§500 would not be made by the counoil to the agricultural association, and
that tho later would need all the money
thoy could got.
Mr. Brymner was of the opinion
that, ns tho sports would bo held in
tho exhibition grounds this year, tho
reooipts would bo quite large from the
25 cents admission fee to tho grounds,
Mr. Jas. Cunningham said there
would be probably from 600 to GOO
children at the exhibition, and he
thought somo special provision should
be mado for them, nud would ba in
favor of appropriating §100 from the
exhibition fund for that purpose.
Gn motion, it was finally deoided to
appropriate §250 for the grounds, and
the remain dor, $-130, to be handed to
the agricultural association fur the purposes of tho exhibition.
Mr. Cunningham's suggestion for a
special entertainment for tho children
was generally approved, and a speoial
subscription stinted at tho meeting, at
which $30 or 810 was raised, after
which tho meeting adjourned.
