NOTES ASD COMMENTS.
A California paper, in corampnt-
in** on a concert, says that one of
the ladies sang in the German style
sobbing at each word with spasmodic
accents, and uttering abruptly loud
notes.
An instance of presence of mind
approaching to the horrible occurred
in the Grand Theatre, Glasgow.
Miss Rose Lee, whilo singing a love
song, saw a "flyman" foil head
foremost from the flies to the stogo,
n distance of twenty-two feet. Sho
not only continued her song, but
moved forward to the front of the
stage in order that the calcium
light which was directed upon her
might not reveal tho form of the
dead man to tho audience.
In the U.S. postal service thore
are 58,200 postmasters, 7,000 railway mail service employees, 7,000
letter carriers, 100 inspectors,
5,000 clerks in the post-offices, 600
clorks in the nost-offico department.
This gives a 'total of 77,900 employees. Every post-master averages
two assistants, and this, in round
numbers, amounts to 116,400
persons, whioh number added to 77,-
900 gives 194,300 persons over
whom the sorvice has control.
An Alabama man charged with
stealing a calf made tho following
statement: "1 was always teached
to be honest, an'most always have
been; but when I seed that calf I
caved. I never wanted a calf so
bad in all my life; an' you all know
that when a man wants a calf he
wants him." The jury returned the
following verdict—"We, (his jury,
nro satisfied that Stevo stold the
calf, but as the fuller that owned
the animal is considerable of a
slouch, wc agr:o to clear Steve an'
make the slouch pay the costs."
A ballet girl at the Olmtelet
Theatre, Paris, recently received the
visit of a provincial notary, armed
with the necessary documents to
prove her to be the only child of a
marquis recently deceased, and the
sole heiress of an estate worth
several millions of francs. The
child was changed while out at
nurse. The dying confession of
the foster mother and certain
positive proofs have established her
identity. Thus will a young woman
be mado wealthy by her father,
after having heen made famous by
her granile pat.—Ex.
A local industry has sprung up
in the Australian oolonios in making soft felt hats from the fur of
rabbits. Oony wool is now worth
7s. a pound. From the single
colony of New Zealand there have
been exported about 70,000,000
rabbit-skins, valued at nearly £75,-
000. But thn property destroyed
by theso rodents is estimated by
millions. Tho cheap linings of
coats and ladies' cloaks and many
of tho dyed articles of fur, are due
to rabbit-skins, home and foreign.
In the last ten years 28,000,000
rabbit-skins have been exported
from Victoria.
Judas has been officially abolished
in the island of Maderia. It has
been a time-honoured custom of the
natives to exhibit in one of their
numerous religions processions an
effigy of Judas, upon which the
opprobrium of the populace was
duly heaped, and at the close of the
day Judas was burned with vociferous expressions of triumph and
joy. Of late years it has happened
that the effigy of Judas has borne a
striking resemblance to some person
upon whom the general publio has
oeased to smile, and thus tho governor of tho island, the mayor of
Funchal, and tho foreign consul
havo been oaricatured in the processions aud burned in effigy. The
powers that be havo deoided that
the admixture of politics aud
religion is not wholesome, and so
tho edict has gono forth that hore-
after the peoplo must got along
without Judas.
It is popularly supposed, remarks
a correspondent of the London Daibi
News, thot the Authorized Version
of the Bible, ns wo have it to-day,
is entiroly free from printers' errors;
and it may be interesting to _ good
many of your readers to learn that
it contains anything of tho kind.
The following passage, however,
speaks for itself, and tho misprint
contained in it will be readily
noticed : "Woe to the idol shepherd
that loavcth the flock ! Tho sword
shall bo upon his arm, and upon his
right eye; his arm shall be clean
dried up, and his right eye shall
bo utterly darkened," (Zechariah,
chap, xi., v. 17). Curiously enough,
this error has been allowed to ro
main uncorrected by the Universities Press for nearly fifty years,
and possibly for a much longer
poriod; at any rate it will be found
in the editions of the Biblo for 1839
and 1883,1885 being the date of
publication of the Revising Company and it would seem as if they
wished to consign the fault to
oblivion, as they substituted a new
adjeotivo ("worthless") for that
misprinted — namely, "idle;" avoiding, moreover, any reference,
marginal or otherwise, to the
alteration made.

ALL QUIET IN SAMOA,
Auckland, New Zealand, March 14..
—A steamer hns arrived here from tho
Samoan islands with advices from Apia
to Maroh 5. Everything was tranquil
when the steamer left. Thero hnd
been no change of the positions of
Mataafa and Tamasese, The former
has 0,000 men in his entrenched camp,
and the latter only 700. The German
authorities had withdrawn their proclamation of martial law, and abandoned the right of searching vessels for
contraband of war. The foreign men
of war remained in the harbor of Apia
and there had been no conflict or dis*
turbanco on sea or land since the lost
advices. All wero awaiting instructions from Berlin and Washington.

London, March 14.—The Berlin
academy of science, with the co-operation of tho German government, has
organized an expedition for the investigation of the Pelagic Fauna of the
Atlantic, which is to commence with
tho examination of the American coast
from Greenland to Brazil. The expedition, which is to sail from Kiel in
June, h to bo under the direction of.
Prof. Hanson, the well known scientist

no allowance wasted.
Thero is no foundation for the widely circulated report tlmt parliament
will shortly ho asked to grant an allowance of 875,000 a year for Prince
Albert Victor. There is no intention
of making any Buch request until
Princo Albert Victor is about to marry,
except, of course, iu tho event of the
domiao of tho crown.
ON A COUltTINO TOUlt.
Princo Charles, of Sweden, Duke of
Wcstrogothia, second son of King
Oscar, and now in Paris, is coming to
England ahortly to stay for soveral
weekB, when he is very likely to be
heard of in the character of suitor for
the hand of the Princess Victoria of
Wales.
IIUDOLPH'S SCIENTIFIC COLLECTION,
The zoological and scientific collection of tho late Crown Prince Rudolph
are to be distributed by order of the
emperor among the museums of Austria and Hungary.
THE QUEEN,
Tho queen will leavo Biarritz on the
afternoon of Thursday, April 4th, and
is to travel direct to Cherbourg, where
she will embark next morning on board
the Victoria-Albert for Portsmouth.
She will reach Windsor Castle in time
for dinner on Friday, April 6th. The
date of the next drawing room will bo
either the 9th or 11th of April.
A HEAVY WIN.
"A young Englishman won £40,000
the other day at Monte Carlo." I have
read this nonsense in a dozen papers
during the last week. The real
amount was 40,000 francs. . So far
from the bank having been doing badly
this season I hear that the gains exceed
by Borne 8400,000 the profits for the
same period of lait year.
d'aumale'm rgtubn.
My correspondent writes of the reasons why the decree of exile against the
Duke D'Aumale has been revoked, is
the hope of playing him off against
General Boulanger on one side, and
against M. Clemenceau un the other.
Politicians who have been for the last
ten yean filling their pockets at the
cost of the country and patronizing art
in Boudoirs of Sylphs of the opera and
at the houses of pretty actresses will
find themeelvea high and dry. It ia
not pleasant for them to have to retire
into private life and they want now to
take a fresh departure. Some of them
oa regards reputation stand in need of
a bath of Eau de Cologne. They think
that by having tho Due D'Aumale in
their hands they would coase to be
thoght fishy. Un the whole, howerer.
the present cabinet is a respectable one.
There is no harder worker thanGuyot,
minister of public works, upon whom I
have had my eye for years. Ha is as
clever as he ia reliable, nnd has virtues
which frugal habits and diligence in
business originate and keep up. As
to the playingoif of the- Due D'Au-
malo aguinst Gcu. Houlanger my feeling ia it is ton late. If the Duu D'Aumale wero of tho age of tho general ho
might bo pitted ngsinst him with every
chances of victory, but (he Due Ib 68,
vory gouty and dislikes frivolous moths
and buttorilief}. He hns loit his relish
fur vain glory and for tho iucensu cf
what i3 called society.

Pauis, Mur. 14.—In Bourse the
oigan of the metal ring, declares the
crisis appalling, an announces that all
copper mines have consented to stop
production for two months.
DEBMANY TO   BLAME.
Berlin, March 14.—Herr Vohoen,
an officer of tho Gorman East Africa
Co., who has just returned from tho
African coast, throws the blame for
the outbreak and bloodshed at Bogo*
myo on the consul-general and political
agent of Germany at Zanzibar. A
German mission is about to start for
Morocco to open the markets of that
country to Germany. Dr, Peters, of
the Emin relief expedition, has sailed
for Zanzibar.
THE AHBLICAN BALL PAYEES.
London, Maroh, 14.—The American
base ball teams played to-day at the
crystal palace by invitation of the
directors. All America won by a
score of 5 to 3.
an unlucky institution.
Paris, March 14.—Thore is a rumor
on the bourse, which has caused great
commotion, that Mr. Pillot Weil, who
recently withdrew from the board of
director! ot the bank of France, because he disapproved of the advance it
made to the Comptoir des Cample, has
resigned his seat as director of (he
Comptoir des Compte and three other
directors have resigned with him. The
shares of Comptoir des Compte have had
a heavy drop to-day in consequence of
this report, and this tends to confirm it.
A SECBET TREATY.
London, March 13.—While it is pre-
bumed in London that the visit of Sir
Edward B. Malet, the British ambassador at Berlin to England is due to
family affliction (at least so it has beon
given out) it is asserted in Berlin that
he is the medium of a secret communicated from Prince Bismarck to Lord
Salisbury on the subject of forming sn
alliance between Germany and Great
Britain. Color is lent to the truth of
this report by tho fact that Sir Edward
held an extended conference with Lord
Salisbury this afternoon, instead of
devoting himself to family matters as
he would naturally do if the reasons
assigned here for his visit were true.
RECEPTION TO MR. PABNELL.
London, March 13.—St. James'
Hall was filled to overflowing to night
on the occasion of tho lone; heralded
reception to Mr. Parnell in recognition of the return' of what popular
esteem of whioh the new exploded
accusations of tho Times had robbed
htm. The hall was profusely decorated |
with flags, flowers, etc., and the gathering was remarkably enthusiastic. Mr.
John Morley presided, and upon taking
the chair delivered an earnest and eloquent speech. The absence uf Mr-
Gladstone, he said, was greatly regretted by all but he was assured, and in
return would assure his audience, thut
tbe great leader of the liberals would
be present if it were not for the fact
that he had been earnestly besought
and prevailed upon by his friends to
spare himself for another occaaion
when the cause uf Irelnnd would be advocated before a body competent to
take action on all questions to bo presented. Mr. Gladstone would not,
Mr. Morley said, spare himself of his
own free will, because he plainly
sees that the time is fast coming
when we will Burely get to the bottom

the entire courso of tho Times againBt
Mr. Parnell and his colleagues and rejoiced in (he downfall of tlie fabric it
had raised. Mr. Parnell, in rising to
speak, was greeted with a perfect bedlam of applause, the ovation lasting
many minutes. He was sure, he said,
his countrymen in Ireland, Australia
and America would be equally glad
upon hearing of his reception to-night.
He had, however, not much to say
and would reserve his last words on
lhe vital subject for tho witness-box
and the house of commons. The proceedings before tho commission had
involved a scandalous waste of money.
THE MISSIONARIES RELEASED.
Zanzibar, March 12.—The German
missionaries who were recently captured by tho Arabs have been released
upon a ransom of £6,000 being paid
and the surrender of twelve slaves
which the Germans had. Tho Arabs,

THE HMUCULINO CASE.
Bismarck, Dak., Mar. 14.—Tho

of intentional wrong doing, and the

opium was consigned, was sentenced to

TERRIBLE BOILER EPLOSION.
Pittsbubo, March 14.—A tubular
boiler at the West Point boiler works
of Munru it Sons, exploded to-day at
noon just as steam was shut off for
dinner. The explosion was terrific
and tho ruin was so complete that the
fireman could not get noar tho boiler
houao for some. time. It is unknown
how the acoident occurred as August
Dillenbaugh-tho engineer, and Michael
Connors, Chas. Allenbachor, Jacob
Ilinchart, Daniel Clark, and James
McCarthy, the boilor makers at work
at the time, were all killed. The
boiler was carried 50 feet without a .
break and knocked out all the pillars of
the building, letting the roof down entire and killing the men. Six othen
were injured, but not fatally.
Testimonial lo Hr. 8. T. Tlllcy.
One of tho heaviest losers by the recent fire at Vancouver was Mr. S. T.
Tilloy. Knowing the loss Mr, Tilley
sustained, several of his friends joined
together to assist him, and the result
has been that a handsome Bum has
been placed to his credit at the Bank
of British North America. The gift
wai made known to Mr Tilley by
Mayor Oppenheimer in a nicely-worded letter, containing the list of subscribers to the fund, and was feelingly
and suitably acknowledged by the
grateful recipient. It is such deeds of
kindness as this that give us a good
opinion of human nature, and make
life worth living.— World,
Coal Hear At-hcron.
Advices from Ashcroft aro to the effect that the coal claim which Messrs,
McNicholl and Finney have been
vigorously prospecting for the past
year iB turning out favorably. Mr.
McNicholl informs us that he has sunk
sixty-five feet on tbo claim, and that
the coal lays in strata ranging from six
to sixteen feet in thickness, the Btrata
being separated from eaoh other by a
thin layer of limestone rook. This
coal, which is pronounced of excellent
quality, lies to the north of Ashcroft
25 miles. Mr. Nicholl does not expect
to realize on his claim, immediately,
but presupposing the building of the
Cariboo railway he expects to figure aa
a coal baron, and possibly as a president of the council.—Times.
An OBtildeOplaloH.
Tho New Westminster paper is agitating for the dropping of the prefix
"New," in the title of the city, but
the council has hitherto objected on
the ground that the name was bestowed by hor majesty. . The name certainly is eumbrous, and therefore in popular usage amongst British Columbians
wilt soon he curtailed, as other names
in frequent use are shortened. Exactly what that law ii, or at least what
the reasonB are why long names are
not abbreviated, cannot be Btated
briefly. We have retained Nottawesaga
and Nassageweya in popular speech,
perhaps because these names have
about them romantic suggestions of
the wigwam, or because they flow out
smoothly and grandly, or perliapa becauso tho peoplo who live around the
beautiful townships so designated have
Slenty of timo. But on the other
and that mouthful spilling over, Pene-
tanauiBheno—equally euphonious and
pleasingly suggestive, has been shortened into Penetaug. Possibly tho
shortwindedncsB caused by the emphasis on the utang" mado the remaining syllables needlessly laborious. Tho
name of New Westminstor cannot
plead easy pronunciation for its intention. Tho breath labors through it
like a wagon over a half-floating cor-
duory road, or a Rod river cart
through a muskeg. Our agitated contemporary on the Pacifio may rest assured that in its immediate vicinityjnat-
ural law will get rid of the first syllable.
Wo in tho East who do not pronounce
it so often won't drop it without an
act of parliament, but in writing it
will employ a typewriter at three dollars a week rather than adopt the New
West, or New West'r which offends
our contemporary's correct taste.-—_

Thui-mlny Evening, March 14. 1889.
A vory distinct benefit to this
city nnd an important part of the
district, growing out oftho Southern
Railway, will bo tho bridgo connecting the city with Lulu Island.
This is contingent, it is understood,
upon the outcome of pending negotiations between the city and the
provincial government with the
view of a certain reserve at tho
head of Lulu Island being miulc
over to the city as a site for workshops, round house, Ac., for the
Southern Railway. It is confidently expected that the required concession will be made by tho government. To do the present, provincial
government justice, it's _members,
and particularly the senior member
for this district, the provincial secretary, have always shown a readiness to assist in furthering the interests of this city by making all
reasonable concessions in their
power necessary to the success of
our various railway and other enterprises. Westminster's application
for the reseive abovo mentioned,
supported as it has been by the
Richmond council, and favorably
considered by tbe government, may,
wo think, bo taken as granted, and
inside of six months, probably,
added to our present and prospective
advantages, we shall have connection, by a railway and traffic bridge,
with one of the richest and most
thriving agricultural districts in the
province.
An effort is being made again
this year, Vancouver taking the initiative, to havo the province represented at the Toronto exhibition
this fall. The idea is, of course, a
good one, provided the exhibition
can be made thoroughly representative and justice insured to the different localities and interests taking
part. It is a notorious fact that
strict justice was not done in this
respect last year,, but Vancouver
took tbe opportunity of glorifying
itself at tho expense of other sections of the provinco represented,
Tho small exhibit that went from
this city and vicinity on that occaaion was taken under the wing
of the "empire city" and swelled its
display. The exhibit throughout
was distinctly "the Vancouver exhibit." Of course that city
engineered the British Columbia
show, and was entitled, for its enterprise, to all the credit that it
could fairly get out of the thing. It
is to be hoped, however, that tho
British Oolumbia exhibit to tho
Toronto exposition may be run on
somewnat different linos this year.
If "Westminster ic going to take a
hand in the show at all—and wo
ee no reason why it shouldn't and
a good many why it should—we
must endeavor to work as far as
possible on the principle that what
is worth doing at ull is worth doing
woll. "While heartily co-operating
with our sister city, Vancouver, and
other cities or sections of the province, with the view of having tho
province creditably represented at
the Toronto exhibition this fall, we
should take enough additional interest in the matter to have a commissioner of our own to go witli the
exhibit from this city and district
and see that it is properly
displayed and credited in the
speoial department allotted to British Columbia. Our own provincial
exhibition will be held in this city
within n short time of the Toronto
exhibition—probably later. In preparing for the provincial show, intending exhibitors can keep in view
and devote a few choice samples of
products or manufactures for the
ToroDtn exhibit, Both exhibitions,
if properly turned to account, may
be made effectual means of advertising the resources and advantages
of the province, and bringing us
what is retjuirotl for their development and full enjoyment—-capital
and population.   .
Alive to the advantages and necessity of advertising their district, the
board of trado of Macleod, Alberta,
has recently made arrangements for
that purpose, but instead of publishing a pamphlet, us is the usual custom in circulating immigration   literature, has made a now departure,
and in its choice of an  advertising
medium hus   displayed  a   business
shrewdness thut might with advantage be copied by older  and   more
pretentious   bodies,    The   method
adopted to advertise the district was
a special edition of the local   paper,
.   ths Maoleod Gazette, published under
the patronage and, oversight of  the
board.    It   is   not  an   uncommon
thing on tliis coast to have a city or
a   district  advertised   through   a
special edition of aome foreign paper,
which succeeds very well  in  somo
respects perhaps.   It takes a  ooniiderable amount of money  out  of
the oountry and may prove a  moderate "spec" for the foreign publisher
thus bonused.    The plan 'adopted
by tbe Macleod, Alberta, board  of
trade, however, has advantages over
uny other that we  ever heard  of.
The Winnipeg  Commercial's comments on the subject are SO  appro
priate end to the point that we
reproduce them largely : "This is
n sensible move, and probably one
that will havo more inlluenco than
the circulation of the same matter,
in equal proportion, in pamphlet
form. Pamphlet immigration literature is becoming a drug in the market, and at any rate, immigration
pamphlets are frequently looked
upon os unreliable and overdrawn.
So many pamphlets havo boen
issued of an unreliable nature, that
it is no wonder this is the caso. A
paper published regularly has the
appearance of stability and in this
sense should be a better medium
than tho pamphlet. Tho publication of a good paper shows that the
district is progressive nnd prospering, while a pamphlet may mean
anything or nothing. A pamphlet
could bo written upon a district
which is entirely undeveloped and
without inhabitants, but n regular
local paper is prima facie evidence
of the condition of the district.
There is no better and more certain
indicator of tho progress and development of a district than a
properly conducted local paper.
Evory paper in the country is an
immigration agent, in proportion to
its circulation und worth. The
work accomplished by all the pamphlets and books ever published
about this country, has been in-
finitesimally small in comparison
with the attention drawn to the
country by the circulation of the
various papers regularly published
here, and circulated at home and
abroad. It may, therefore, be considered that tho Macleod board of
trade, in assisting iu the preparation
and wido circulation of the local
paper of the district, has made a
more sensible move than if the
same amount of money had been
spent in a pamphlet. Efforts are
being made by a great many municipal organizations, boards of trade,
etc., in Manitoba and the Territories
to set forth tho peculiar advantages
of their respective districts, with
the object of securing additional
settlers. This is right and proper.
Where such efforts are being made,
we commend the plan adopted by
tho Macleod board of trade. The
plan conld be followed up in something like the following way : Tho
publication of a very ordinary pamphlet will cost say §500. Now, instead of publishing a pamphlet, say
an arrangement is made with the
publisher of the local paper to circulate a certain number of extra copies
eacli week. The papers could be
circulated under the direction of
those interested in the immigration
movement, and several columns
of space could bo given each week
to matter prepared under the direction uf tlie immigration committee,
For S500 the local publisher would
probabably publish 500 extra copies
of his journal each week for a year,
and the circulation of the papers
would cost nothing. This would
give the circulation during tho year
of 26,000 extra copies of the paper,
at a nominal cost, in comparison
with the circulation of an equal
number of pamphlets, while the advantage to the district from tho
circulation of a good local paper
would be very much greater than
could be derived from the publication of a pamphlet at double the
cost. It would not be necessary to
circulate a certain number of papers
each week during the entire year.
The same number of copies could bo
circulated during six months of the
year, for that matter, or at other
limes ns might appear suitable, in
the discretion of the immigration
committee."

JAMES CUNNINGHAM.
Importer of   Hardware,   Agt-lcullnral
Implement . tie.
In overy city there are individual
examples of men whose connections
with its business pursuits, whose
prominence in all matters of public
enterprise, whose record for unllinch-
ing integrity, undaunted energy,
and untiring industry, make them
objects of special note, not alone in
their homes, but wherever exalted
commercial reputation is recognized
and respected, such a man have we
in the subject of this sketch. Mr.
James Cunningham established his
business in this city in 1862 and
has, thiough all the vicissitudes of
twenty seven years' trade, maintained the oven tenor of his way.
His transactions have increased
year ity year, and the circle of his
customers and patrons grnduo Uy
widening nnd his firm extending until ho now controls a business un
excelled by any similar establish*
ment iu British Columbia. His
buildings are large and commodious
and admirably arranged and appointed. All this space in filled
with a complete and extensive assortment of hardware, agricultural implements, paints, oils, glassware,
crockery ware, wall-paper, wooden-
ware, stoves, tinware, hollow-ware,
plumbers' goads, houso furnishings,
iron pipo and lilting-;. Tliis houso
also manufactures tinware of all
kinds and does every variety of
sheet-iron cornice work, gas-fittings,
plumbing, rooliiig, otc. There is no
house in thu trade which carries a
more complete stock or who-st. facilities surpass those of this establishment for supplying the trade with
first-class goods nt lowest quotations,
The length of timo this gentleman
has been in businoss and tho success he has attained are better
recommendations than the loudest
praise wo could possibly give, We
may mention, however, to our readers who have not yet becomo acquainted with this firm, that none
in the Northwest has a better reputation for fair and honorable dealing.

Dr. Shrady Discusses the German
Ruler's Disease,
Thoso who got places long ago are lining
crowded out and now ones are being talieu
Tin- Interbalanoe of 911 ml anil  Matter-
Can u Worn-Out Muii Become Now
—An Eiample of Tbls Kind
T of Recovery,
Tho only man in America who has boon
dully associated with alt tho problems ot
tho Gorman empire sinco the death-hand
h-13 been directed against tho most conspicuous members of tho Hobenzollorn
i ually has been Dr. Shrady, who in the
c :es of two Presidents, Gariield and Grant,
c cure, world-wido attention as the consulting physician and Burgeon ln thoso omor*
gciciso. Whon tae Crown Prince became
ai iiotod Dr. Shrady, through tho cable, was
couanlted on all phases of his disease aud
1 reatmeht. His opinions, published or otherwise, havo beon cabled constantly to the
other sido of the Atlantic, and if any thing
' this compliment exhibits a respect for
American advancement la modicino and
mirgoiiy not ofton paid to ub.
Dr. Shrady, in response to a New York
Mail and Ezpmi reporter as to the future
life of Frederic,*; III., said;
•' Tho poss ibilfties of his recovery of
courso no man can limit or define Tho na-
turoof his disease is still an uncertain ly;
and of courso, as my opinions are quoted
In Europe by cablo, often probably with
inaccuracy, I must bo careful what I say.
I must not go beyond what I know and belie ve."
"But, doctor, tho recent journoy to Berlin
from Ban Rcmo and its consequences, the
GlYcct ou tho mind and constitution of a man
lilto tho now Emperor—how would you estimate tho results']"
Tho doctor thought awhile, said tho question was a difficult ono to. answer haphazard ; but then, with an Intellectual illumination common to men of deep thought,
snid:
"From my knowledge and standpoint,
and from my experience, I have no hesitation in saying that Frederick III, will improve from now on, unless I greatly misunderstand his troublo and havo been misinformed about his symptoms. Now let me
toll you this. Tho Crown Princo has been
in the vnlo of depression; he has been one
of those unfortunate men against whom a
pitiless sympathy has been bombarded, and,
of course, thut is not always encouraging
to recovery. But lot me clto the caso of
Oeuoral Grant, which is entirely analogous
—certainly iu so far as tho grit of mind and
faith is concerned. He was low, low indeod,
whon ho began to write his cgrcat book
about the civil war; his disease
was in an alarming condition, but when
ho began to exercise his mind, te recall tho achievements of his versatile military, personal and political experience, tho frailtloB of tho body gavo way,
tho encroachments of fatal corruption of
tlssuo stopped, and his body became a passive instrument to tho mind. Tho period
when General Grant wrote his momoirs.now
admitted to bo written with a marvelous dl-
. redness, clearness and fairness of vision
und literary strength, was only the interregnum between the precipice of health and
tho gulf of death nt Mount McGregor. To
tho professional mind, to tho philosopher,
too, and also to the man who witnesses physical Buffering heroically in our profession,
But when his appointed task was done, the
work upon which he had sot his heart and
soul, and the interests of his family (ami his
own historic fame), when sufforing undor
. cruel misfortune, has been secured, thore
was tho ult mate collapse. Tho disease
which had consonted to halt whilo his tow*
(orlng mind wns active again asserted its
sway. His ilunl decline began. The doctors
tried to divert luui by reading, by investigations into all sorts of topics, but it was of
no avail, ho sank and he died."
" And tho anology exists in tho case of the
Crown Trinco, now Emperor I"
" I think it does—that is, if I am correctly
informed as te his physical condition. His
accession to power as Emperor, his genial
nature, his ambition as tho ruler of the
strongest erapiro of Continental Europe
twill, undoubtedly, have a powerful influence in staying the progress of his malady.
Imagine such a thing, ovon on a sluggish
imagination—a nation acclaiming him the
natural climax of a career achieved, yot hts
policies not yet declared. I tell you, many
forms of organic disease hnvo boon
known to givo way boforo loss formidable
forces than thesoj I think, withal, his
journoy to Berlin hns shown recuporalive
powers in tho direction I have named, and
his solf-consctousness as Emperor, a chance
of independent development as tho loading
European ruler, will havo a salutary effect
on tils general health."
" But uro thoro oxampleB of this kind of
recovery existing'"
■J Certainly! Recall tho cose of Napoleon
HI. Hurled from power iu September,
'IS?'), after u long and lingering disease well
known to our profosslou, ho only survived
a littlo ovor a your. But during tho many
yoars of tho empire, whilo ho lingered in
pain, ho was happy in dynastic achievement
and intellectual power. Tho moment ho
foil in rule, so he fell ln physique. This is
tho rulo, curiously enough, of men subjected to organic troubles on the ono hand or to
exaggerated mental strain on tho othor."
"Your conclusion,then, is, doctor, thnt
who succession of Frederick III. is a better
harbinger of his future health!"
' "I have no doubt of it," iald Dr. Shrady.
PRETTY TVPE--WRITERS.
L Business Man Hnyt That Tholr ITnyi
Aro Numbered.
Tho othor day I went to a type-writing
ichool und I witnessed tho neglect of a
iluiu girl who evidently found it difficult to
■oiiecal hor mortification, writes Clara Belle
n tlio Philadelphia I'rcts. I was in tho
-ooui with tho proprietor when lie asked her
o como In.
"I suppose thero is no uso my asking you,
Ir," sho said, "but Blnco I havo wailed I
vill sny I am seeking occupation us a type*
vrlter."
"Do you understand tho businesst" ho
wired,
"I nm said to be vory rapid," said she.
' I huvo boon livo yours at tho calling.
"Hill you accept 915 a week lo not ns
lienographor and typo-writer lo Vlco-Presi-
lotit HiMiiid'So, of the —oil company."
Hor oyefl changed color, Thoy brightened
sltuii&t into Hum-.'.
" Klftcen dollars!" sho said; "I only got
on dollars, sir, and thou only for a your ho*
oro iho firm I was with failed."
Tho nrrangeinant or bargain was quickly
nudo. Boforo sho loft tho girl asked: "Will
■ou toll mc why you nam me lust though I
■■ns t.!io (list to cornel"
" I'd lutlior not," Bald tho employer,
■'Old all tho othors secure places!" iho
eked.
" No ono but you wns taken," ho said,
Bho went away wondering. When sho
ud gone tho proprietor turned to rae ami
aid: "That Is both a sensitive and u sensi-
ilo girl. She thought she was left to tho
list becauso hor faco and droBs aro plain,
•iho is right. This Is tho day of tho homely
-[Irl, The beauty, tho belle, the dressy girl
ill aro at n discount in this business, nnd
I. e hnvo resolved nover to omploy another
pretty girl if wo enn omploy a liomoly ono."
" The reason Is as plain as tho noso on
your face,** ho continued; " tho wives havo
interfered. Evory married man Ib visited

BIG  TREASURE VAULT.
The Largest Construction of tho Kind In
the World.
The ono-hundred-milllon vault Is tho
larcrost construction of the kind in thb world,
writes tho Washingtoncorrcspondentof Uio
Philadelphia Times. As it now appear j it
looks like a modem improvement on tho
dungeons of tho old inquisition in Spain,
Italy und Austria. Descending into depths
'of tiio massive foundations of tho Treasury,
about thirty feot below the surface of tho
public thoroughfares outsido and crossing a
dingy, dimly-lighted bare apartment, a
grcut squaro of stool, standing partly open
In n stool casement, BUggosts tho cn.-.;ioo
to thu new vault. Tho door, about cit-lit fuel
high nnd six feet wide, is six inches thick
and weighs five thousand pounds, oi* two
and one-half not tons. To movo it on iia
tracks into its steel casing requires the desperate exertions of fivo mon. A ntech-tnieul
device is now being constructed to fessuu
tbo demand for this amount of mtu-.i■:-.'. in
handling tho ponderous portal. A lock ono
foot In diamotcr, resembling tno highly-
polished bottom of a dish-pan and npcr.. cd
through a combination of the most delicate
and intricate mechanical appliances by
menns of koy, a throws tho powerful hi 'It!-, into tho slots in the framo, and a time-lock
holds thom there against any thing oho1! of
blowing up tho building by tlie root a until
tho hour fixed for tho morning rounds of tlio
official custodian of tho vaults.
Pussimr tlu'ough tho jaws of this monitor, of human contrivance against burglarious attempts, tho chill, dump uir nml
inky darkness suggest tho strength uud
[solution of this vast tronsuro-box. It is
85 feet long, 50 feot wido and Iii 1'oot high,
surrounded by massive walls of nmsotii-y
and brick fivo feet thick, ffi'tho dini liglit
of a candlo tho weird lattico work of interlacing bars of stool whicli form tlio {.te-,
teen cells, each leu by twenty feet, muy bo
vaguely seen. Around the innorcng(* lends
a narrow corridor, whoro tho custodian of
tho vault may mako hiB rounds of Inspection, Upon a transverse central corridor
the cells open. Each door is fitted with un
ingenious device for fastening, whicli will
not catch until the door is entirely shut and
the koy removed.
Each of theso cells will hold six and a half
million dollars, or two hundred tons of silver dollars, or a grand totalof 8,500 net tons,
equal to 100,000,000 silver dollars. If tho
corridors were used for storage tliis aggregate could bo increased to tjl-»_,000,0i)0.
Some practical idea of the oxtent of this
treasuro may bo formed when it is realized
that te transport it would require at lcasi
wagons, which would extend tn a continuous lino from tho now city hull of Philadelphia to Norrlstown, or a truin of cars
which would oxtend from tho Broad-street
station to Fifty-second streot.

want to toll you that tho first and greatest
lono highwayman In this country lived in
Tucson, and his name was Bill Bnizlctou. It
has now been seven or eight years sinco he
was killed. Whilo ho lived ho was tho tor*
ror of Southern Arizona, and he did nil of
his work sinj-to-lmndcd. Ho used te work
In a Hvory-Btui'lo in Tucson. Ho was u
young fellow who did not sny much, but
wus nil iho timo practicing with his revolver whon ho was not at tils work. Ho was
tho most active, powerful young man I over
saw.
" Ho got bo ho could turn a somersault
with his pistol in his hand and as lio camo
uphitafifty-ccntploco ovory time twenty-
five yard* awny. Ho could shoot in every
position, whether standing, running or riding, and every timo ho 'plumped' tho bull's-
eye. Suddenly bo left town, and it-was no;
long till we hoard of his robbing stages ul.
ulono. Ho had nerves of steel, and did not
seem to bo afraid of auy body or any thin;*.
Tho greatest efforts wero made to capture
him, but bo eluded all of his pursuers. Ho
seemed to bo here, there and everywhere at
tho sumo time. Finally it was suspected
that a hostler working in the stublo whore
Bruztoton had boon employed knew something of bim. Ho was taken out to tho edge
of town and hanged up till ho was almost
dead, when ho agreed to confess bri condition that Brazlotou should bo shot on sight,
as ho would kill any man who betrayed his
secret at tho first opportunity.
"Tho hostler said ho wns to go out to
meet Bruzloton that vory uightand tako him
something to eat. Ho was te wait behind n
log in a certain piece of woods. A party of
six welt-armed men took the hostler und
went with him to tho place of rendezvous.
Thoy all lay dowu behind the log and waited
for Brazteton. By and by ho rode out of a
thicket into on open space and camo slowly
toward tho unsuspected ambush. Ho carried his pistol in his hand us if Buspcelmg
that things woro not all right. When within
thirty yards of tho log tlio wholo party
roso and fired, killing tho horso and rider
in au instantr It was ono of tho most dramatic incidents that over occurred about
Tucson in thoso troublesome days. Bra-
Milton's body was riddled with balls. Ho
was brought to town and the next morning ho was propped up against the adobe
wall and his photograph taken, and tho
local photographer has to-day in his showcase a ghastly illustration of tho triumph of
UU art"

Hov. Francis T. Russell, rector of St,
Margaret's Diocesan School for Girls, in
Watorbury, Conn., contributes to the
American of that city some roinintsceiu-os
of the Alcott family, among thom the tul-
lowing: " Ono of the marked characteristics of Mr. Alcott was bis kindliness of
feeing. It arose from sincere lovo to ull
mankind, and from a constant, thoughtful
regard for tho interests of othors. It was a
a fundamental principle, as laid down in Ids
lccturos,that to make intercourse withothors
agreeable wo must select topics upon which
wo are agreed, Ho-nlways judged mou ut
tholr bost, nud through this charitable regard drow forth thoir best feelings towards
himself, A young mnn onco called upon
him at his houso In Concord, with tho mendicant's common story of having beon
robbed on tho cars, and in soro need of llvo
dollars to onablo him to reach his destination. The applicant pledged himself to return tho amount the following wook. Mr.
Alcott said: 'I havo not got fivo dollars,
but I havo a twenty-dollar gold pieco which
1 will glvo you.1 It is needless to suy tlmt
tho offer was at onco accepted. Tho follow,
ing day the neighbors, on comparing notes,
found that thoy hud each been victimized in
the sum of llvo dollars, and could only find
comfort ln tho thought that tho philosopher's loss was four times as much as any
of theirs."

r-ilstiQfil by Wild rar_ilps.
Last Saturday night two half breeds,
who live near Brownsville- mndo a
very hearty supper on wild paisnips,
aud shortly afterwards were taken
alarmingly ill. An Indian brought thbin
over to Westminster and they wero
admitted into tho Indian department
of St. Mary's Hospital. By the time
they reached the hospital they were in
convulsions, and their lives were in
great danger. Dr. Fagan happened
tu bo iu attounaiioe at tlm time and
quickly set to work to Bave them if
possible. A stomach pump was used
with good effect, nnd their stomachs
cleared of tin; poisonous stuff. The
men had a., yarrow, esaapo and suffered
terrible pain, but they have now boen
discharged from the institution completely cured,
The secretary of the board uf trade
telegraphed to Mr, }>,. Chisholm, M.
P., nt Ottawa, last night, asking bim
to press upon the attention uf the government the necessity of having the
dredger sent to Westminster immedi-
y for the purpose of dredging certain places in the harbor, us the water
was now low and iu Juno tho water
would be high aud the work would
then bu dono nt a great disadvantage.
A reply was received from Mr. Chiaholm this afternoon, stating that the
minister of public works had ordered the dredger to go to Westminster at onco and perform the work.
This prompt notion of tho government
and Mr. Ohishohn, our member, is
moat commendable, and will be received with appreciation by tho people of
Westminster. The dredger is urgently required to deepen the river in front
of Borne of the wharves in order to enable
sen going vessels of deep draught to
discharge and take on cargo.
Serlons Accident.
At Mnplo Ridge, yeiterday, little
Georgie Dawson, son of ex Reeve
Dawson, met with an aceident which
caused him the loss of his right hand.
Georgie and a boy named Edge wero
playing together with an axe,
striking it into a chopping block for
amusement and probably to try their
strength. By some means, which cannot be explained, the boy Edge raised
the axe and struck at the block whilo
George's hand waa resting upon it.
Tho axe desended, struck George's
hand juat back of tho knuckles, in a
diagmial direction, completely severing from the rest of the hand and badly shattering the bones of the index
finger and thumb. The boy was immediately brought to this city and
taken to St, Mary's hospital whero he
received the necessary attention from
Dr. Fagan, the house surgeon. This
morning after consultation, Dr. Fagan
decided that the rest of the hand must
be amputated, aud he was assisted in
the oporation by Dr. I. M. McLean
and Mr. James Ellard. The amputation was successfully performed, and
the little chap stood the ordeal bravo-
ly and in now doing as well as might
be expected under tho circumstances.
Tbe Baptist -Toiii-crf.
The concert givon under the auspice?
of the Olivet Baptist church last
night iu aid of Ihe church funds,,
was a very enjoyable affair. Although
lhe weather, unfortunately, was rather
unfavorable for tho occaaion, tho edifice was fairly well-filled with un appreciative audience. Tho selections
wero all in nice taste and were very
well rendered throughout. Tho concert began at 8:30 o'clock and the following programme was carried out in
detail:
Pianoforte Duot--"Qui Vivo?"

singing of the National Anthem by thu

to a close. The concert wus given fnr tint

LOCAL PARLIAMENT

rial i-f'slnlnturr
Viorqau, March 13.—The speaker
took the chair nt 2:20 p.m. Prayers
were read by Rev, Mr. Starr.
The common standing ordors and
private "bills committoe reporled the
bill to incorporate tlio Viotoria Lumber
& Manufacturing Company ui completo
with an amendment. The report was
received.
The finance minister preson'ed a return nf all the assessments called for
by the house. Ho nlso presented tho
public accounts up to 31st December,
1888. On motion tho latter waa referred to tlio public accounts committee.
Mr. Grant presented a petition from
a number of the druggists of Victoria
with respect to tho bill now baforo tlio
house regarding poison bottles.
Mr. Grant, on a question "f privilege, said that the public accounts'
committee had not yet been called together, and consequently had as yet
been unablo to oxmiiitie nny aecounts.
It has boen the practice in the past for
them to examine tho accounts up to
dato. The Fiimuco minister would
soon be coming down with his budget
speoch, and it would bo woll if tho
committee could then bo able lo pronounce that all accounts were correct,
lie was sure that they would be found
so.
Mr. Bole moved the second reading
of the "Condition Sales Bill." He
wns proceeding to explain the necessity for and tho condition of the bill
when,. Mr, Allen enquired: "Whero is
the bill?"
Mr. Bole had givon duo notice and
oxpectcd that the bill would bo printed
and distributed. Ho did not wish to
have it left over for another week but
as tho houso had not nn opportunity
of examining the bill he was willing to
allow it to Btiind over till Thursday.
The bill accordingly slood over.
Mr. Anderson in moving tho second
rending of tho bill to incorporate tho
National Electric Tnunwny Company
dwelt upon the great benefit- to tho
public of city and district which was
certain to accruo from tho introduction
of an electric tramway. Ho proceeded to read an extract from tho Electric
World descriptive of nn electric tramway operated by thu Vonderpole system in St. Catharines, Ont. As tho
railway was successful and useful in
St. Catharines it might reasonably be
expected that it would work with
equal satisfaction in Victoria, where
the ereatest difficulties of heavy snow
nnd ice would not bo met with. Ho
movod tho second reading of lhe
bill to incorporate the Electric Tramway Company,
Tho bill wub read a second time and
committed for next Bitting of tho
house.
The houao wont into committee
upon the New Westminster Short Line
Railway bill, with Mr. Croft iu the
chair. The committee rose ut 4:30
p. in., and reported progreeB, and asked leavo to Eet ng-iii- at tho next sitting
of the house.
Tho h use again wont into committee upon tho Westminster Southern
Railway bill, Mr. Fry in tho chair.
The committee rose and reported tlio
bill complete as umtmded, the report
received to bu considered at tbe next
sitting of tho house.
Mr. Humphreys stated that tho adjournment of the debate on tlie second
reading of the mineral act was taken
so that the attorney-general might boo
if tho bill could not bo made widor in
its scope so as to benefit others besides
tho miners.
Tho attorney-general thought it
would bo well to accept tho bill as it
stood. Ho was uot at present pro-
pared to submit any amendment.   ,
Mr. Mason was of the opinion that
the bill would not work well in isolated districts if it wero made general in its application. He knew it
was badly needed in Cariboo- fie advised that the bill bo referred to the
select standing committee on Mines.
Mr. Grant advised that the gold
coin in i si un er in the settlement of an
intestates estato select two other responsible parties to act with him. He
thought his arrangement would givo
more general satisfaction.
Mr. Mason had no objection to receiving tho bill of committee on Mines
if Buch wns the wish of tho house.
However, he thought the bill simple
enough and could do no harm by passing it as it was, while lie felt certain
it could do no good,
Ou motion thu ordor for the second
reading of the mineral bill, uo. 31, was
discharged and tho bill referred to tho
select com in it tee on mines.
The house went into committeo with
Mr, Nason in the chair, upon the btil
to amend gamo protection net. Tho
committee reported the bill complete
with amendments.
Mr. Higgins did not approve of tlio
amendment re the Granville townsite
to the resolution moved by tho hon.
member for Victoria city. Tho matter
might very properly be left to r« select
committeo of tho house. Ho thought
if there was anything loft to the province in the matter of theso water lots
tho railway company ahould nut bo
allowed quietly to pnsse.'s themselves
of this valuable property.
Mr. Humphreys approved of the re*
marl's nf tho hon. mombor for Esquimalt. He could not reconcile what
tho Dominion government had eaid,
however, with the statements mado by
the hon. provincial secretary that there
was no ucceHbity for tho appointment
of tho committee. Tf what had been
said by the hon, provincial secretary
was taken from his actual knowledge
there was no need for a committee.
The provincial secretary aaid the
government had no objection to making a thorough investigation into the
matter or to the appointment of a committee bo lo do, if it were desired. He
thought the government could do more
than tho committee, but there was no
need of any investigation toy either.
The government had nothing to con*
coal and no interests to further, except
those of the people. If the house
wished to havo a committee appointed
there was no objection to be off-red by
the government. Tho matter was, us
he said, however. The lota wero under
the sea and ships sailed over I hem.
He intended supporting tho amend*
ment offered by the hon. member fur
Viotoria city, as he considered the
proposition contained therein the most
businesB-liko of tho two offered to tho
house.
Mr. Orr produced the map of tho
old townsito of Gnin ville nnd proceeded
to review what had been said in support of the resolution. The amend*
, merit to the resolution was adopted.
The Proprietors of Parmelee's Pills aro

following, which explains itself: Mr,
