NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Mr, Labouchere, of London Truth,
hints that Prince Rudolph was "removed" at the instigation of Prince
Bismarck, on account of his pro-
Russian opinions.
St, Paul und Minneapolis Pioneer-Press : Portugal appends her
nunie to the km-.' list of nations that
havo insulted tho American flag
and will probably nttver be any the
worse for it. 11' this thing continues
much longer, Uncle 8am may yet
hnvo to strike his colors at tho
behest of Patagonia or Liberia.
The free trade Chicago Herald
asserts thnt anarchy is the product
oik restriction, Whereupon the
protectionist Philadelphia Press retorts that "the Herald may reasonably be expected to turn up ono of
these days with the announcement
that the hairless condition of Mexican dogs is duo to the duties on
wool." The Chicago paper might
woll reply that the American consumer is in a fair way to be hairless
through worry over the prices he
pays for woollens in consequence of
the duties,—Mail.

The Mail (Feb. 7.) says : Some
of our exchanges are discussing the
question whether the olimate of
America is changing or not. Whatever may be the fact with regard to
this, it may safely be said that the
oldest inhabitant of Toronto will havo
to rack his brain to remember more
extrnnrdiuary weather than that of
the past fow dnys in this city—and
presumably throughout the province.
At midnight on Monday tho temperature at the observatory was two
degrees above zero; at eight o'clock
on Tuesday morning it was thirty-
seven degrees above zero, nnd at
ten o'clock tho same evening it was
three degrees below, This sort of
thing is apt to load us to believe
that the weather is trifling with us.

Alaska in the year 1867 was
purchased from' Russia by the
United States government for the
sum of §7,200,000. Three years
Inter the Alaska Commercial Com-
pany wns formed for the purpose of
embarking in tho sealskin trade.
It was obliged by law to limit tho
number of seals it destroyed yearly,
and to pay a tax on every hide. A
report of a committee of congress
calculates that in the twenty years
that have since elapsed a sum exceeding $8,000,000 has been paid
inttrtho treasury by the company.
Tills means that through a single
company, and by means of a single
trade, in the space of two decades,
Aluska has repaid the whole of tho
capital invested in hor purchase,
together with interest at tho rato
of about 11 per cent.
Tht! Montreal Witnesi is moved to
m^ke the following (jrpwl, and we
don't wonder at it: A great deal
of money is spent yearly in publishing "bluo books,:' and although in
these volumes are to be found tho
most interesting of facts regarding
tho position and prosperity of
Canada, yet, owing to tho red tape,
to a lack of reasonable common sense
in iirrnngement nnd to clerical
errors, these faots are usually buried
so deeply in unimportant detail as
tolo almost beyond resurrection.
Unless the civic service exists rather
for the maintenance and comfort of
its members than for the benefit of
the people of Canada, or unless its
issues are intended to hide rather
than reveal the actions of the government, is it not too much to expect
that these works which cost the
country so much should be clearly
and popularly arranged and decently
printed, Itwould take something
littlo short of a revolution to make
the blue books of Canada what they
should be in mutter, but for tlio good
name of tho country tho government
should at least see that their outward form is improved. The paper
is good nnd the ink is good but the
typo work is vile and they abound
in orrors which would disgrace u
country job otllce.
1 The Garden and Forest, in a leading article recently, suggested three
sensible and, to tho United States,
partly novel methods of forest conservation. It proposes, first, that
the work of guarding tho* forests be
entrusted to otlicera of tho United
States army; second, that a national
commission bo formed with power
to thoroughly investigate the present condition of American forests,
and report on the bearings of that
condition on the lumber trade : and
third, tlmt a school of forestry he
established in one of the groat mountain forests, The neighboring republic has already done not a little
for tho preservation of her forests
quito enough to shame us; but she
is still a long way behind Russia,
Germany, Franco, and even India,
in systematic and scientific modes of
forest conservation, and in making
provision for tho training of officials
therein. The Garden and Forest's
article comes at an opportune timo,
namely, at the commencement of a
new administration, whioh may be
expected not only, liko a new
broom, to sweep clean, but also to
sweep in new places. The article
has been commented on in tho
American papers, ono of them remarking that, "these suggestions
impress us as sensible and timely,
and as deserving the early and earnest consideration of congreu.
A BIG REDUCTION.

LECTURING THE SENATE,
Washington, Feb. 15.—In the
house to-day Mills, from the committee on ways and means, presented
the senate and house tariff bills, together with a long report arguing that
the senate, _ under the constitution,
cannot originate revenue bills, and
that its amendment to tho house bill
is in reality an original bill and not an
amendment. Accompanying the report is a resolution whioh tho houso
will be asked to adopt, returning to
the senate its substitute for tho Mills
bill, with the suggestion that section
753, article 131, of tho constitution of
tho U. S , vests in the house the solo
right to originate such measures, and
that the substitution of tho senata bill
nnder form of an amendment is in conflict with the true intent and meaning
of that clause of the constitution.
A FRIENDLY   WRESTLE,
Red Bluff, Cal., Feb. 15—A
friendly wrestling match between
Buck Davis and S. P. Byler, on a
ranoh 25 miles north of here last night,

Pittsburg, Feb. 15.—The firm of J.
B. Williams, Jas. Williams, John Williams, and Thos. Patterson, known as
the Grand Luke Coal Co., failed to-dny
for over a quarter of a million dollniB.
Tho assignment was mado to Isaac Van
VuorhiB who had a olaim of 810,000.
The causes of failure were heavy losses
by Ihe recent storm at New Orleans,
where 140 barges of coal were lost, and
investments in a local railroad. The
assets consist of a lame number of tow
boats, steam barges, etc., which wtll
be sold at auction by the U, S, mar-
shall.

not the intention of tho government
to bring in a bill amending the North
West Territories Act, so aa to secure
to the territories governmental powers
aa full us those of other provinces,with
the exception ol the power of borrowing money.
Sir Adolphe Caron introduced a bill
to amend the militia act. In effect
tho principal clauno provides for tho
guarantee of expenses from municipalities in cases whore troops are
called uut to aid tho civil power, nor
can the services of the permanent corns
be obtained without tho sanction of
the minister of militia.

Haldimand. The liberals greeted tho
new comer heartily, Messrs. Laurier
and Blake giving him a hand ahnku.
Mr. Lmiderkin paused in his speech to
declaro that tho election of Mr. Colter
was nu emphatic protest against class
legislation.

Kditor Columbian. — The bridge
aorofis the Fraser River near Lillooet village le open for traffic. Times nro very
dull in tho district just at present, but
strong hopes aro entertained that as soon
as the spring opens up there will bo considerable mining done during the summer. There ore a largo number of Chinese wintering in Lillooet, and last week
there was a great time with them in Lillooet village, since the death of the woman supposed, and wo think correctly,
to have heen murdered (whether intentionally or not) by a Chinaman, who
mado good his escape from Lillooet, after
remniniiig there until after his victim
was interred. Wo have sinco heard that
ho has been taken near Westminster, and
hone that justice will be done to him. as
well as to the littlo helpless girls, who
seem to bo the objects of grent solicitude
to certain partleB in Victoria. Would it
not be better to havo theso girls with
their own friends than have such a disgraceful show-off as they, the sheriff and
the stranger sent from Victoria after
them, succeeded In making of the children lost week. Just imagine two timid
girls detained in a desolate lock-up for
Weeks and brought out of the building
by the sheriff to the wagon that was to
convey thorn to Ashcroft. Iu place of
the girls obeying orders and getting into
the waggon, they simply bolted. The
oro .,'d that had gathered made way, ono
girl succeeded in getting through n cntc
and catered a private residence, where
she ■.vas sure of protection from her pursuer, thu other was caught and put bach
into the look-up. The other went back
of her accord to keep hor company after
the Victoria man had gone with her to
"the terrible waggon."
Now, what wo want to know is, by
wli.it right are Uicbo girls to bo taken
from their own friends nnd n-itu_-.il protectors nnd sent off with a strange man
to them- no friend with them- in fnct,
against tho wishes of nil tho friends they
hnvo! They nre simply prisoners, for
what else is their close coulhiemcut in
Lillooet jail ? If they had been kept for
witnesses, the Chineso friends would not
object to their confinement, but by whnt
right nro thoy to bo taken to e house of
refuge? Arc lliey iiot aliens; And when
they nsk, or some of their friends for
them, to be taken to a house of refuge,
it would he unite soon enough for the
law to step in to take care of thom. Why
should the country be put to tbe expense
of raising them against their will, when
they have friends who are quite ablo and
willing to protect them, and also to go
security for them to appear as witnesses
about the murder case, if they arc
wanted.
There is -something decidedly wrong
somowhere. If the slicrifl cnunot maintain ordor when taking victims or prisoners better than was done last week iu
Lillooet, the Chinese will be able to do
just as they like, for there is no doubt
that If the Chinese had not kept quiet,
under groat provocation, there would
have boon blood-shod. What could one

PARNELLS LETTER.'
London, _Feb. 15. — Parnell was
present at to-day's session of the Par-
noil commission. Soamos, solicitor
for thu Times, was further croas-
oxamiuod. Ho offered in evidence a
schedule of nil signatures of Parnell he
possessed. Ho said Parnell's writing
varied considerably, and produced a
letter in which Parnell's name was
written six different ways. Presiding
JuBtico Hannen ordered the letter to
bo photographed. Continuing, the
witness denied he heard that Pieott
nnd the league clerk ho interviewed in
Ireland had a grievance against Parnell. Pigott, he said, had made a,
statutory declaration that Solicitor
Lewis hud offered him £1000 if ho
would swear he had forged the letters
said to he written by Parnell. The
Times paid Pigott only £40 or £50.
Tho witness had Pigott watched nnd
traced him into company of Labouchere. Ho paid Houston, secretary of
tho Irish Loyal and Patriotic Union,
altogether £3,000. Upon direct examination Sonnies said no bargain was
made when the letters were first
brought to the Times, their geuuiness
was to be tested before any payment
was made
The witness swore neither he, Houb-
tin nor Macdonald knew whero Pigott
obtained the Parnell lotters. Ho never
asked because Pigott from the first declared ho would nevor reveal the oil-
cumstances of their discovery and the
means by which-he gained possession
of them except iu a court of law. All
that was known was Pigott received
them in 1880. Sir Charles Russell examined tho witness very closely as to
the various forms of Parnell's signature
which had been produced in court. It
wus found some were genuine nnd
some spurious. Tho witness was required to distinguish between and explain their origin. The interesting
fact was was elicited that Mr. Labouchere had offered Pigott a thousand
pounds if ho would outer tho witness
box and tell the truth as to tho author
of the letters.

THE SITUATION  IN  FRANCE.
London, Fob. 15.—Flouquot expected to be beaten, and, indeed, is
believed rather to have courted defeat
as tho safest way out of ministerial
embarrassment. His overthrow on
the question of tho revision puts him
definitely at the head of what is vital
in the Radical party in placo of Clem*
enceiiu, whom events seem continually
conspiring to thrust into tho background. Of late speculations as to
what the next ministry will bn like are
ull incoherent nnd in the air. Tho
most prudent guess is that Ciirnot wilt
patch together and make a shift cabinet which will coerce the chamber into
supporting it by holding over the heads
of the deputies the threat of dissolution, and aftur getting through the
budget all that remains for the session
to do will be to continue a passive
existence, As the exhibition cabinet
will have no purpose but to make tho
great fair a success, tremendous business and social pressure will be put on
tho deputies to permit this to be
done

" Public Opinion," in another
column, conies down flat-footed in
favor of the " Kingdom of Canada."
"Come, let ufj make us a king, that
ho may reign over us!" explaimpd
tho ancient Israelites nt onn eventful time in their history, nud in nil
ages., nnd among ull nftttons, humanity; has shown a decided penchant for
"kings and courts," although the
performance has been varied occasionally by cutting oil' u king's head
and experimenting for a while with
"government by the people, pf tho
people, and for the people." Tho
most successful experiment of this
sort so far has been wrought out by
the great republic adjoining our
southern border; it has braved a
hundred years, it is truo, but cannot be said to have passed altogeth
er beyond the bounds of a problem
yet. England furnishes, on tho
othor hand, the most illustrious example of a nation that has retained
tlio monarchical form of government,
and its institutions, and their practical operation, certainly do not compare unfavorably with those of
the greatest republic. But Canada
is considered by tho nation doctors
to be in an anomalous, an untenable,
position. .Many questions—all of
them interesting—present themselves. What shall she do? Remain us she is. That is not to bo
thought of (so, they say). Draw
closer the bonds with the motherland! There are objections to that.
Go over to Uncle Saml No, thank
you. Set up as an independent ropublic! Uncertain aha risky. And
then, this last coup d'etat, which
some inventive and, sensational
Yankeo makes Sir John propound—
Bloom out into the ''Kingdom of
Canada," with a royal prince on the
throne. Well, the plot thickens,
nnd unfortunate Canada will soon be
in the position of the much enamored
young man that could have been
so htippy with either, wero t'other
dear charmer nwny. The upshot of
it all will be that Cnnnda will remain a simple "Dominion" for some
time to come—a sensible conclusion,
too,
Au  American Pacitic coast co-
temporary talks in the following unfeeling way in contrasting tho eastern and western climates:   "They
are picking up dead peoplo all around
tho state of Kew York, just now, a
frightful blizzard having passed over
the  land.    It   was   the fashion, n
generation ago, to tench school children whut a terrible thing the simoon
was, lhat sweeps over  the   Sahara
desert whore nobody is expected to
live. Tlie simoon is a, pleasing zephyr
compared to tho  North  American
blizzard,     Divine   providence   intended   such   states as New York,
Iowa and .Minnesota for  the   occupancy of bears and Indians, and the
white people who live  there  now,
aro being annually punished for the
crime their ancestors committed in
driving the Indians and bears  out.
Let thom repent in   sackcloth   unci
ashes, and gather  their household
traps together and remove to Washington Territory, where blizzards are
unknown, where tho climate is   delightful and healthy, and where nature is in perpetual repose.   There
is room here for a   million   blizzard
refugees, and the richest soil in the
world only awaits culture   to   bless
and enrich mankind.    Knowing all
these facts, peoplo in tho cast who
havo   tlie  ability   to change their
placo of residence, and who, nevertheless, persist in remaining   there,
should receive no sympathy nnd deserve to freeze to death every   winter."   The writer of the ubove would
probably he one of the first to kick
if  any   Canadian   or British print
were' to declare that   " Now   York,
Io*a, and Minnesota" woro only
(it "for tho occupancy of bears and
Indians."    No one believes unything
of the sort, of course, not even the
reckless humorist who penned   tho
sentiment; but tho quotation above
serves   to   illustrate   how   thoy do
things soutli of the line, where   the
motto,   "All   is fair in love and in
war " not only has full swing in tho
politics  of  the country, extending
even to international  relations, but
constitutes one of the strongest cards
in the repertory of the city, district,
or state boomster.   Tho  patriotism
of such methods—decrying violently
a distant section of one's own country, for the purpose  of magnifying
the advantages and increasing the
prosperity of tho writer's immediate
locality—if indeed it could be called
patriotism ut all, is of the very lowest and hide-bound character, and
the absurdity of such statements  is
likely to shake one's faith  in   the
couleur de rose flights whon the obverse is being presented.   Just  imagine Thu Columbian getting so enthusiastic about  the  elimate   nml
other advantages of this province—
which,   goodness   knows, there   is
somo  excuse   for  doing--as to exhaust all expressions of admiration,
and then launch out  in  wholesale
denunciation   and   abuse of eastern
and central Canada, by   declaring,
for instance, that Ontario,   Quebec,
and Manitoba were only fit for bears
and Indians. But wo haven't got
gall enough to porpotrate suoh a
manifest and injurious falsehood,
even to boom British Oolumbia.
This province, however, does not ro-
quirc such methods to bring it to tho
favorable notice of the world. Without any exaggeration on the one
hand, or depreciation on tho other,
it will win its way to an enviable
prosperity on the solid basis of tho
truth and its own merits. It will
be sought by many, not becauso
other countries are not lit to live in,
but because this is litter. While
wc are forced to admire the Yankeo
"get up und get" in many things,
we do not wish to see some of their
methods adopted here, und, among
other things, we would draw tho line
ut tho unsorupulousncss und utter
selfishness of tlio American boomster.
Germany's " Iron Chancellor " is
getting shown up in rather an   unenviable light those times, not only
to the "fatherland," but to the world.
Tho   publication   of   tho  Emperor
Frederick's   diary in tho first place
dispelled n good ninny illusions and
scraped oft' some of the gloss  from
the   chancellor's '.scutcheon.   Then
Bismarck   got   mad,   as everybody
knows, nnd exposed his bad  points
some more.    His attitude   and   expressions toward the late Emperor
Frederick and his English wife, both
before,   but   particularly after, the
lamented death of tho former, havo
been neither becoming nor creditable
to Bismarck as a man, or ns one occupying tho high   position   ho   has
held for years in the German nation.
The fact hus been   made apparent
that   Frederick   was   too good, too
advanced and noblo a character  to
obtain favor or   receive   fair  treatment from the selfish, saturnine, and
despotic Bismarck,   The Morier incident,   too,   has involved not only
Count Herbert Bismarck in disgrace,
but has cast additional discredit upon tho "old block" himself.   Coming
on top of their self-inflicted obloquy,
the "Bismarck dynasty" havo   been
raked over the coals by  an  anonymous, but evidently notable, writer
in England who spares none of the
weak   points   in   the Bismarcltian
armor, but thrusts unmercifully and
with telling effect.   Not n German
newspaper,    however,   dare   copy
a  syllable   of thia arraignment, for
fear of the chancellor's iron rod that
would speedily descend and demolish
it.   As if in compensation  for the
stern repression of publio criticism
in Germany, fhe darkest stories are
rife abroad, some even going so far as
to charge Bismarck with "removing,"
by his secret agents, the   Austrian
crown princo, Rudolph, whoso tragic
death has already given rise  to   so
many and diverse rumors to account
for it.   In   support of this theory,
the death of the Austrian prince is
said to be but another of those dark
episodes which have occurred during
the past two decades, and which invariably have resulted in the  death
of great personages who had incurred the enmity of Princo Bismarck.
As examples the deatj» of Qambetto,
General Chanzy, General Skobelol.',
nnd   King   Louis   of Bavaria are
cited.   Prince Bismarck, it is said,
bus   numerous   and   unscrupulous
agents of overy rank and condition
of life, including such men as thoso
who, a few days after the demise of
Emperor Frederick, wero   shouting
under   tlie   palace windows, "Here
you nre, ono mark for a truo history
of tho amours of the English woman
with Count S.,"   :i filthy pamphlet,
containing   tbe    most   outrageous
statements concerning the stricken
empress and her  chamberlain.   To
what extent Prince   Bismarck   becomes blind to the sentiments of humanity when either his personal interests or what lm chooses to regard
as tlie national policy aro at   stake,
is exemplified by the statement that
at Paris, in 1867, lie was   notified,
eight hours beforo it took  place of
the attempt to shoot the Cur on the
way  buck   from Longchainps with
Napoleon.    By saying ono word, it
is said, lio might  have had   Bere-
zowski arrested und   have   avoided
tlie shedding of innocent blood. But
he remained silent, fully aware that
if tho attempt took- place   it would
put un end to all danger of an alliance between Napoleon and   Alexander, an alliance which would have
rendered the BVnnco-Gernidn war of
1870 an impossibility.   His conduct
in   tins   matter is desoribed as only
in accordance with the cold-blooded
calculation and cynicism with which
ho watched the dying  moments  of
Emperor Frederick, and in keeping
with the brutal persecution to which
he has subjected both tho widow und
all tho nearest antl dearost friends of
his dead mastor.

Reminisooncos of tbe Early Days
of tho Prairie State.
How Horse-Thieves Woro irnnlctl by the
Sturdy Wust-irii I'lonoers—Expeditions
That Us willy En doi! with n, Tragedy
—Kallro-ids and Civilization.
Tho depredations of horse-thieves in
Southern-Kansas was for a timo something
appalling, and kept tho wholo country
alarmed, writes W. B. Holland in the Detroit Freo Press. For tho pust thirty years
thclndi; nTorrltory has been tho rendezvous of many of the worst citizens in tho
West. Fugitives from Kansas and Texas,
as well as from tho Eastern States, flocked
In thero. where they woro sure to find protection and coiiRonial companions. A man's
social standing in this lawless community
dei>Liiiclc(loniiisi,BadinoBBwitha"guu,"and
thu numhiT and atrocity of tho crimes ho
had committed. Tha word "gun" referB to
a revolver, but those were of such an
enormous sizo that tho terra "gun" seemed
to suit better,
A residence of a few days with these people would make an agnostic argue the necessity of a hell and ho could easily show the
utility of such a placo. While the inhabitants woro banded togothor to resist the
law, thoy had no confidence in oach other
nnd no fear of any power, human or divine.
They would havo been unablo to have told
Sunday by tho aid of an almanac and the
entlro absence, of razors caused thoir facet
to havo a heavier hirsute adornment than a
boarded woman at a show.
It was an easy matter for one or moro of
tlieso outlaws to enter Kansas, steal ahorso
and bo back in the Territory boforo tho loss
would bo discovered. With such facilities
for horso stealing at hand, it is no small
wonder that tho farmers in Southern Kansas living closo to tho atate lino were able
to keep any horses at all.
Tho result of so much crime resulted in
tho formation of "vigilance committees,"
tho object of which was to cause a suspension of horse-stealiug by suspending the
thieves. Tho members of theso committees
wero called "Vigilantes," nnd tho beauty
of their method was found in the fact that
they never had to punish a man for tho second offense.
While a groat deal of fault may bo found
with mob law in general, there is no doubt
but tho vigilantes in Kansas had an elevating effect ou the horse-thieves.
When a horse was stolen, tho neighborhood was notified and men started out in
squads of from three to six. They all went
into tho Territory, each squad selecting its
own route. A uoticoablo part of the outfit
hf each squad would be a new halter rope
of a size sufficient to hold three or four
horses, and perhaps thirty feet long, Just
why such a ropo was necessary to hold a pony that at other tunes was perfectly gentle
did not appear, but tho ropowas taken along
at any rato.
Iu two or threo days the squads of vigilantes would bciriu to return. Finally one
squad camo in loading tho horso that had
been stolen, It might also be noticed that
while all tho other men had brought baok
tho massive halter-rope, tho squad that
brought the horse brought no rope,
*'Wo found tho horso, but tho thief got
uway," tho successful men said, apologetically.
"Did you soo tho thief!" some ono would
ask.
"Yob. wo saw him and the last we
noticed of him ho was going through the
brush," would bo tho answer, sometimes
varied bo as to havo tho man " drown while
croBSingarivor."
Thetruth was apparently told, but to the
farmer who hnd boon n member of a similar
squad tbe careless words told of a tragedy
and ho know that somewhere in tho wild
country juit south was a corpse hanging to
a tree, a not* -pinned to the bosom and fluttering In tho wind. He knew that a soul
hnd been hurried to its Maker; that one
despcratoman had struggled with others
as desperate and determined as himself
aud had succumbed to tho odds against
hiin. H.' Um .;• also that it was a horse-
thicr thn: had been hung and that his own
animals woro so much safer. Conscience
waB stilled by tho thought that it was his
duty; ahurnijio task, but nonetho lessa
bounden duty, duo to himself, to his neighbors and to his family.
When starting on such a trip, each man
hoped that it would not bo his squad that
should overtake tho solitary mad riding tho
stolen horso. Ho closed ills eyes to shut
out tho romembrauco of tho time when he
was a member of tho successful squad—
when ho was one of tho four who captured
' the sullen criminal on the tired aud worn-
out horso. Ho could still hear tho poor follow bog and plead for mercy which nil four
wore about to grant, until ono of them
whispered "our oaths," and from that moment tho doom of tho thief was sealed.
He hoped that ho would nover be a party to
each another hideous crime, but ho knew
that if ho caught tho thief ho would do
what his neighbors expected of him and
what ho expected of them. Dead men toll
no tales, and neither does a vigilante, so he
knew ho was Fafo from all human law and
punishment.
But all this is post and horso-thiovct and
vigilantes are almost unknown in Kansas,
Tho Missouri Faoiflc and tbo Santa Fo railways eaoh cross tho Indian Territory and it
is no longer a don of criminals. Tho pioneer farmer of Kansas speaks of the vigilantes with a far-away air as though dimly
remembering something of them and their
ways.
The scattering trees that have borne such
horrid fruit are still there and may bo
known by their names and local tradition,
"Dead Man's Tree," at the head of "Horse
Thief Gulch," la a well-known placo In the
Territory on the Arkansas river, Years
ago when going south from Wichita on a
stage tho horses would bo changed at a station known ns "Threo on u Limb," but the
railroads havo dono nwny with tho stago
just as civilization ended tho necessity for
vigilance committees.
A  STRUGGLE  FOR  LIFE.
Thrilling 1-j-.porJui.ee of a Hunter hi India
wi tli- a Deadly Constrictor.
A writer in tho Statesman, of India,
sign Ing'himself It. M., wbo was once head
of tho Crown Lands Department, in the
colony of Trinidad, says: In company with
a half-breed, who combined the vocations of
a woodman and hunter, I stumbled suddenly on a large specimen of tho crotalus
mutus, slowly winding its way among the
loaf debris of the forest. For souio timo it
was difficult to discern the scaly folds of the
snake through tho brown mass of decaying
foliage, but having reached a clear spot, tlio
roptilo coiled around a low stump and pro-
pared for notion. About a yard of tho body
next to the head was contracted Into numerous sharp curves not unlike a corkscrew,
whilo tho yellow eyes gleamed with a baleful light, Thoro was littlo fascination about
these orbs, and no mistaking tho malignant
intentions of their owner. A stick bought
within reach of that mortal coil was s I ruck
almost with the rapidity of lightning, no
matter bow swiftly withdrawn. Thla was
effected by tho instantaneous straightening of tho short curves into which
this portion of tho body had been
contracted. Even tho wily mongoose
would have needed all his marvelous
agility to avqid tho deadly stroke, If
onco within ran go. Tho roach was nbout
nyard, and the assault was delivered horizontally Homo six incbeB from tho grouhdj
directly toward the assailant. Tho hunter,
who hnd hitherto kept at a rospectful distance, us ho alleged the suakocould spring,
wns eventually persuaded to approach
sufficiently near to strike it with a ten-foot
pole. AtthofirBt blowtho heavy coils relaxed from tho stump, and tho crcnturo appeared dead or stunned. The writer at
onco grasped the neck, about two niches
from tho head, and raised the roptilo partly
from tho ground to examine it. As though
galvanized into life by the touch, tho cro-
talua seemed ut onco to recover its energies, and swiftly made a couple of turns
round tho thigh arid right arm of tho
would-be captor. Tho constricting power
exercisod was suoh that the hand grasping
the neck began to lose power, and the
writer, realized the awkward predicament
Into which his temerity had led him. Little
could bo done with the freo left hand, while
tho "scaly terror" .began slowly to withdraw its head from the relaxing graspof tho
right. For somo seconds the trembling
woodman appeared deaf to entreaty, aud
could not he persuaded to apply a
noosoor liana to the snake's hoad. The
largest serpents become paralyzed when
properly noosed, and are readily dragged
along tho ground helpless as a log. Just as
tho snako's hoad seemed about to ooze
through the numbed fingers, tho half-breed
screwed up his courage sufficiently to apply
tho liana as directed, with tho result that
the brute at onco relaxed its colli, and was
dragged down to a neighboring stream,
hung up and skinned. It measured eight
feet live inches, and was about as thick iu
tho largest part of the body as tho culf of a
man's log. Tho fangs, which woro carefully extracted, measured ono and u quarter
inches in length, and were hollow to within
a short distance of tho point, whore, ou the
Inner sido, lay the orifice through which tho
poison wns ejected by the action of tbo base
of tho fang on tho bag in which it was secreted. On squeezing the bag a small
quantity of poison, a yellowish fluid, passed
down tho hollow in tho tooth and gathered
into a tiny drop of concentrated death. The
stomach contained two wood rats about tho
size of guinea pigs, one partially digested,
the other recently swallowed.
GOLDEN  OPPORTUNITIES..
A  TAPE-WORM  TRAP.
The Peculiar Instrument Inventod by an
Ingenious Kentucky Doctor.
A prominent physician was conversing
with u New York Times reporter a few
nights ngo concerning tho curious instruments invented to aid surgical and medicul
science Scores wero considered as remarkable nnd the list was pretty nearly
exhausted when tho physician remarked:
"I'll toll yon of ono now that I'll wagor
you novor heard of. It was invented by a
Ken tin-It y physician, was patented, and tho
mod'.*! I-Tnowlu tho Patent Oillco at Washington. It wus invented as a means for removing u.pu-worins. Its description is as
follows: Tho affair is mado of platinum,
and is about tho size of a small hazel-nut.
It is spherical aud hollow, lu ono sido of it
isoutau opening about tho diameter of an
ordiuary lead-pencil, and within tliis ts a
set of springs somewhat after tho fashion
of it mouse-trap. Behind tho loop which
springs up to catch tho prospective victim
is ii tiny hook.
Tho patient is supposed to fast for two
days. This accomplished, tho tape-worm
becomes thin and wants some thing to ent.
Then is thu time for tho operation. A littlo
plecoof choose is hung upon tho liook within tho trap, tho springs are sot, nud aftor a
silk thread has been tied to a little hole in
tho end of tho trap, the latter is swallowed.
Tho worm is supposed to bo ready to tako
almost any thing. Ho encounters the trap,
and tho cheese becomes a rare opportunity
to hlm. Uo sticks his hoad in through tho
littlo holo and fusses with tho cheese,
when Biinp gocB the trap, and master worm
Is caught about tho head.
When two hours havo elapsed the trap
and its victim nro slowly pulled up by
means of tho silk cord, aud the monster of
the )abdominal cavity is removed. I am
not aware that many of these traps have
been used, inasmuch as tho tape-worm
Uvea not on solids, but simply upon absorption. Buttiio affair was a novel one for
a physician to invent, and actually te get a
patent upon.'j	
ABOUT  HOTEL "CHIPS."
That Is the Name Given to Food That Is
Left Ovor,
The steward of a big up-town hotel was
chatting with a reporter a few days ago,
says the New York Tunes, whon tho latter
Innocently Inquired: "What do you do with
tho stuff you do not cat."
•'fhat," was tho reply, "is something of a
professional secret, but I know of no reason
why it should remain so, Tho truth Is, tho
'chips,' tat wo term thom, constituto a very
considerablo part of tlie hotel's income.
Thoro is not ono of theso big places in town
whero tho proprietors manago to figure so
closely that there are not aeveral hundreds
of pounds of perfectly good food left ovor.
Tho result is tbat every hotel has a crowd
of persons who may bo called camp-followers, for thoy answer quite tho same description tu tho great originals. Threo times a
week thoy como to mo—as a rulo on Tues-
Bow Father Taylor   and    Henry   Ward
Beeaher Made Vee of Them.
Tho true preacher, tho "ono who lovos his
fellow mon," never falls to seize an opportunity of ministering to tholr needs. Any
occurrence of tho present moment furnishes
a text.  Hugh MoUullooh says in "Mon and
Measures of Half a Century" that ono day, ,       „..      , ,_.,., ,,
as Father Tavlor entered his chapel, a note ftffi "T?"*8 fn?h^ttt,ItayiT^d buy

: Than, in trumpet tones, he went on to
. enumerate tha vices whioh cut men off in
tholr prlmo, nud spoke of eaoh man's ao
coun lability for putting to noble uses the
tuleuts ho hnd received. Finally, he dwelt
upon tho dangers to which all mariners are
exposed, aod concluded ln, tones which
brought tears to overy eye. "God savo the

and moro dreadful than the seat"
As ho knell; to. pray his hearers knelt also, tear j streaming down their checks.

PUBLIC OPINION
DrcJarc.1 In   Favor of   llie "Kins-lout
<il I .Hindu."
I'lio Ottawa despatch yesterday contained the rumor thnt Sir John A.
Macdonald would in this session attempt t he masterpiece uf his lifo in tho
endeavor to check tho annexation
movement, by introducing a bill to
create "iho kingdom of Canada" under
tho ouzoranity of tho British crown.
Nnw, ns far aa the annexation movement is concerned, suc!rtr*(eoiy) ._'
dat is unnecessary, becauso tho very
fow who havo championed the movement havo been unablo to popularize
it by any means yet tried, and it would
bo very difficult, under Canada's present prosperity, to create enough of a
following to be at all formidable; so
that, on .that score, wo may safely say
the premior entertains no fears. But
thero aro other causes, which would
appear lo carry favor, and we believe
the time has arrived when tho creation
of Canada into a ..c.j>ara.e kingdom
would becomo popular iu thia couutry,
anil bo so popular in tho old laud, that
the queen und the imperial government would coiiset. First, wo have
become a power amongst the nations
commercinlly, and tlm continual development uf our resources and the
progress in onr manufactures—raising
aud manufacturing more than wo need
ourselves ■— has made it u matter of necessity for ua to look outside for markets, and in doing so we
find our commercial relations with
other powers need adjustment. At
present, wu have uot tho power to
make commercial treaties, neither are
Ihe members of the British cabinet
sufficiently versed in our peculiar needs
to makes treaties for us, so that commercial intercourse between Canada
and oilier powers is at a Btand-still so
to speak, and tho dead-lock can hardly
bu removed under tho present system.
Wo shall notice tho matter to-morrow
from a financial aud military point of
view.
