Sugar on Salt.—Experiments
made for tho French Minister of
Agriculture indicate that sugar is
a better preservative of meat than
salt, It is more expensive, but the
powdered sugar forms a coating retaining the juices of the meat without loss, while tho nutritive qualities of the meat are considerable
lessened by the salt.
An Open-Aib Sasatobium. — A

The Fall of the Unfit-test.
Civilized man is creating an era of
extermination, and not only the
great quadrupeds and some human
species but even harmless birds
must go. No less than 500 birds,
belonging to 25 species, have been
lured to destruction in a single
night by the toroh of the statue of
ti'jerty in New York harbor. Some
places already report a scarcity of
birds, aud under tho influence of
augmenting adversities many species
may soon disappear altogether.
The Deepest Depths A sounding of 46,508 fathoms was obtained off tho northeast coast of Japan,
by the TT. S. steamship Tuscarora;
4475 fathoms, south of the Ladrone
Islands, by the Challenger; and
4561 fathoms, north of Porto Rico,
by the V. S. ship Blake. Tho British ship Egeria now reports two
soundings of 4430 fathoms and 1295
fathoms respectively, to the south
of the Friendly Islands — these
depths being more than 1000 fathoms greater than any previously
known in the Southern Hemisphere.
The Rainfall Problesi.— It is
by no means settled that forests increase rainfall, as is quito generally
believed. From an analysis of
many scrios of observations recorded in New England and on tbe
western prairies — regions whioh
have undergone radical changes in
respect to their forest-covering—
Mr. Henry Gannett has reached
-the conclusion that wooded areas
have no influence on rainfall though
they produce, notwithstanding, important economic effects. They aot
as reservoirs to keep book the rain
from the rivers, preventing floods,
but also, as muoh water is evaporated from the leaves without reaching the earth, permanently diminishing tho flow of the streams that
irrigate arid valleys. Thoy also reduce tho extremes of temperature,
act as windbreaks, and otherwise
serve useful purposes.
A Safe   Explosive Bellito,
tho new Swedish explosive, is a
compound of nitrate of ammonium
with di-or tri-nitro-bensolo, in the
proportions of about fivo of the former to ono of tho latter. It is mado
in the form of loose yellowish powder, or in compressed cartridges.
Its inventor claims that it is more
powerful than gun-cotton or dynamite; cannot bo exploded by shook,
pressuro, lightning, electrioity, friction, lire, or indeed under any conditions except by aid of a detonating cap; gives oft'no offensive gas;
is flamoless whon exploded; can be
uinnufaoturod without danger in any
climate; is absolutely safe in transport; and breaks up rock or coal
with less pulverising than dynamite.
It is affirmed that bellite shells
might be fired from ordinary cannon with no risk of explosion in tho
gun, British and American tests
show that, while some explosives
possess greater' power, bellito is especially adapted for mining and
probably for torpedoes,

OPIUM  (JONSl'lKACV  D18UOVKBBD.
St. Paul, Minn., Dec. 15.—United
States -secret service officers aro hero
on the track of a gigantic opium
smuggling conspiracy. They learned
that an organized and well equipped
band of smugglers has for years been
operating across tho northwestern border bringing into tho States the cuBtly
high tariffed drug. One of the gang
was arrested recently at Denver, Colorado, and made full confession. Acting on inform*.!'*,,-, ghmt hy Htm tne
deputy collector at St. Vincent went
west to a point on the Dakota line ou
Wedneiday and intercepted a wagon
lead of 800 pounds of opium in crude
form. The whole outfit was seized
and the driver of the wagon, a half-
breed, was arrested. The authorities
here maintain absolute silence when
asked for full details, but do not deny
the story of the arrest and subsequent
seizure at St. Vincent. They admitted the smuggling conspiracy but
will go no further. The case is in the
hands of officers detailed from the
secret service of tbe treasury department at Chicago. On the 800 pounds
already seized the smugglers would
have defrauded the government out of
$8,000 and would have pocketed 'that
mm on profit on the transaction.
A SHOCKING SCENE.
■ Tex,, Dec. 15.—Further
particulars aro received of the burning
of the King family near Oookville on
Tuesday morning. A reporter, who
visited the scene after the fire says the
remains of Mr. King, wife, and two-
months-old infant could be seen in the
ruins. In the corner of the same room
lay the remains of a 3-year-old boy and
near the door thoso of a 13-year-old
girl. Iu another room were forms of
three boys aged 0, 8 and 10 years, just
as they had gone to bed. The remains
of cl**ht victims were buried iu one.
coffin. It was thought at first that the
tiro was accidental but it iB now believed the family was murdered.

from Kingston, Jamaica, says that the
Haytian government has becomo alarmed over the announcement that U.S.
war vessels are on the way to demand

steamer to Kew York.
AFTER THE GOVERNMENT.
Toronto, Deo. 15.—The lumbermen
have taken another step in the pro*
ceodings against the tariff rates of tho
Grand Trunk Railway. Four weeks
ago they held a meeting and decided to
8resent their grievances to Hon, Mr.
Eowat and ask him to attempt redroci
through the courts. Tho premier, after a few weeks consideration, has accepted tho retainer and has instituted
suits, Tho lumbermen are sanguine
of the outcome of the coming struggle.
A meeting of tho lumbermen of tho
province will be held, probably during
the last week of this month, in this
eity, for the purpose of organization.
NO TRUTH IN IT.
Ottawa, Dec. 15.—Sir John Macdonald denies the truth of the London
dispatch announcing that the Oanadian
Pacific had formally proposed to t he
Dominion government to sell its transportation rights in Manitoba for three
million pounds. No communication
has been received from the Oanadian
Pacific sinco tho last session of parliament.
A DOMESTIC TRAGEDY.
Windsor, Ont., Dec. 15.—Farmer
Robt. McQunde, his sun and the hitter's wife lived in tho township of
Anderdon, near Amhertsburg. The
sou was married about two monthi
ngo to Miss Beat tie, daughter of a
neighbor. Tho union has not been n
happy ono, the wife very frequently
complaining of tho brutal treatment of
tho husband. Yesterday morning she
went to Amher.it burg after having had
a sceno with McQunde, nud he was
left alone at tho house. Shortly after
McQuadu's father entered and found
his son lying iu a pool of blood with
ono side of his head completely blown
off.   Close behind him was a  double*
Hayti thus expects to be spared the
disgrace of being compelled to deliver
the vessel at demand of a foreign man-
of-war. The government also hope to
escape the payment of indemnity.
UNCLE RABTCS IS RILED.
New York, Dec. 14.—Mr. Erastua Wiman, in an interview to-day on tbe But-
terworth resolutions introduced in the
House yesterday, said that Mr. Butter-
worth had made a fatal mistake in introducing his annexation rules. "Theie
are two parties to a bargain," continued
Mr. Wiman, "and in thia particular case
there are three, vizi the United States,
Canada and England, and if any of these
three aro unwilling a bargain is impossible, I stated some time ago in one of
my speeches, that the sentiment against
annexation was bo pronounced tbat its
advocacy by any political party in this
country would meet with that party's de*
feat. Die effect of this proposal for political union at the present timo in Congress will be to make it a very difficult
task for the Liberal party in Canada to
secure closer commercial relations. Indeed it will bo almost a hopeless attempt
if Congress should by its passage of these
resolutions persist in this effort, It will
take 60 years to achieve political union

Jamioa, Dec. 15.—Tho Haytlens
are -in a atato of terror over tho rumor
that tho United States vessels are on
tho way to demand the releaso of the
seized str. U.ytien Ropublic. The
government dare not fight and thoy
fear that to surrender tho vessel in
open poit at the demand of a foreign
man-of-war would make them unpopular and weaken thoir authority at
home. Hence they hnvo docided upun
a shrewd move. The Atlas Line str.
Aleno, Oapt Soiders, from New York,
last night brought a orow under contract with Minister Preston. They
sailed for Port au Prince at midnight
on tho str. Arran, also on the Atlas
line, which hss beon ohartcred for tho
occasion and will take possession of the
str.Haytien Republicon Sunday, They
will then leave immediately for Now
York before the Amoriosn men-of-war
arrive. Tho Atlas Oo. havo contracted
with Minister Preston to deliver the
Haytion Ropublic at New York and
they hope to accomplish it in thia way.

LATE DESPATCHES.
FIGHTING OVER FOOTDALL'.
Annapoiis, Dec. 8. — The football game at the naval academy between the naval cadets and the St,
John's college team resulted in a victory for the latter. About 30 college
boys, ranging ln age from 12 to 20,
grouped together and showed their delight at the second defeat this season.
The cadets, maddened by tho college
cries and the taunts of their opponents,
formed in a solid phalanx and marched
down on the St. John's bookers. The
college boys were rushed about 20
yards, when they made a stand, and a
regular set-to began, in which eyes
were blackened, heads knecked, teeth
went down throats, and little boys
were picked up and thrown polimell into tho struggling mass of their comrades. Superintondant Sampson, Commandant Harrington aud Watchman
O'Leono interfered and stopped the
melee. The better class of cadets
condemn the conduct of their schoolmates, and it is presumed a formal
apology will be tendered to the St,
John's students. An investigation of
the affair will be made by the naval
academy authorities.

must develop more serious disturbances. It is said that when any of the
strikers at Bevier go elsewhere to work
they are refused work, if it is known
they came from Bevier and belong to
tho labor confederation there. As
long as the strike is continued at Bevier
these strikers receive support from the
state confederation. It is said that if
the stato refuses to interfere there will
be more armed men sent to Bevier.
PAIS  THE   l'ENAMV.
River Heab, La., Dec. 11.—Francis Hawkins waa hanged to-day for the
murder of his mother, because she opposed his marriage to a young woman

much crookedness unearthed.
Chioaqo, Deo. 11.—It is said the
interstate commerce commission have
never before unearthed so much crookedness aa 1. revealed by tho present
investigation. It appears that all of
the roads have been employing scalpers
to sell their through tickets much below the regular rates, thus permitting
the roads to quote higher proportionate
rates for short distances. The commissioners have decided that this must
bo stopped. It is said that thoy will
rendor a decision that tho roads whioh
cut rates through scalpers aro guilty of
a violation of the law. Tho managers
of the roads will be called before tho
commission to-day, and will havo the
riot act read to tlieni,

will make a trip through tho south as
soon as possible, and a judicious distribution of literature will he mado.
The committoe, generally, felt very
much encouraged at the showing made
by the party in the recent campaign,
and it ia intended to make still more
strenuous effort, in tho future.
COTTON TIE TAX,
Washinoton, Deo. 12.—In the Senate thore was but littlo morning business so the tariff bill was quickly
taken up, tho question being on tho
amendment offered by Jones, of Arkansas, to admit hoop and band iron,
and cotton ties, free of duty, instead
of taxing it two-tenths of a cent per
pound additional. The question
whether or not this would be a tax on
tho cotton planter, and if so, how muoh,
was discussed at length by Berry and
Hiscock. After a long debate the cotton tie tax amendment was rejected.   -
ANTI-CATHOLIC.
Boston, Dee. 12.—Complete returns

BR. GLADSTONE.
London, Dec, 15.—Mr. Gladstone
made a speech at Lime House town
hall to-day and had an immense ud enthusiastic reception. Mr. Gladstone
■aid while he regretted the lot. to the
liberals by the withdrawal of Lord
Hartington. Tho liberal unionists had
better recognize the fact that political
union between them and the liberal
party was ended. He complained of
the behavior of the liberal unioniat.
sitting beside him in the honae, He
strongly condemned Salisbury's alias-
ion to Dada Bhai Naoraji as "a Hack
man," and said that unfortunate apMch
of the premier gave pain to millions ot
Indians and fellow countrymen."'
Gladstone protested againat the attempt to conquer the Soudan, and described the task as a hopeless attempt
to tight human nature.
TBEFANAK*.   CANAL.
Paris, Dec. 15.—The commission of
liquidators of the Panama Canal Co.,
appointed by the court, Messrs. Nor-
mandie, Bardelot and Hue, are well
acquainted with the affairs of the company and will enter at onoe on the
business of thoir settlement. It is
said in case the chamber of deputies
rejects the scheme proposed by th.
government to defer the payment of
interest, a syndicate having at it. hesd
the governor of the credit, Fonoier, is
ready to take up the enterprise and
complete it. Outside- ot France no
disturbance is shown in the financial
centres of tbe continent in consequence
of the Panama failure. The hourri.,
especially those of Berlin and Vienna.
are much more affected by the astonishing subscription for the Ruaaian
loan in Pari., which wu far beyond
their attention,
RUSSIA AProINTS A CONSUL.
London, Dee. 15.—The Ruaaian government has lost no time in availing
itself of the concession made by Persia
in allowing the appointment of a Russian consul at Meshed, near th. Afghan frontier. The Morn Ft-myn of
St. Petersburg notes that M. Uusoff,
experienced in Central Aaian affair.,
has been appointed to the poat and ordered to proceed thither without delay.

authorities there believed Emin Pasha -

SOUDAN AFFAIRS.
London, Dec. 15.—In the home of
commons to-day Lord Randolph
Churchill asked whether the announcement of the capture of Emin Pasha and
Henry M. Stanley by Oaman Digma
waa well founded and if the govern,
ment would negotiate for the release of
Europeans imprisoned at Khartoum
before beginning hostilities. Qoschen,
replying for the government, "aid It
was impossible to suspend th. proposed measures for the relief far Suakim during tho many weeka nocuary
to ascertain tbe fate of Emin Paaha
and Stanley. Morley urged the suspension of operations in Suakim until
Monday. Goschen declared th. government could not comply with fior-
ley's request but promised that the
government would refrain from giving
instructions to hurry operations ia
Egypt.
8TANLEV AND EMIN UT.
London, Deo. 14.—It J. •vid.nt
from the non-committal reply that Mr.
W. H. Smith gave in the house of
common, thi. afternoon to the questions regarding the capture of Hotta
Bey and Henry M. Stanley, that ttt.
government ia completely non-p1rjjf*4
and has no accurate information in th.
matter further than what is g.n.r.11*

that Osman Digma holds a trump out

Tho sun shines once more on tho
royal city, nfter the fray. Tho dead
and wounded have beon counted,and
both sides declare themselves satisfied. Tbe injunctors—some of thom
—mako their "solemn 'davy" that
they never wished to crush the bylaw. This is rcceivod with an incredulous smile by most; but, on
the whole, if tbe repentant injunctors really mean it now, thero
will be a general handshaking across
the bloody chasm, and all will henceforth work together for the city's
interests. As we remarked yesterday, the city may fairly be congratulated on the outcome of the whole
affair. The setting aside of the particular method of dealing with
the debentures—a method whioh
'received the sanction, co-operation,
and approval of our best citizens,
and including the vast majority of
thoso interested, demonstrated by
public expression—will prove a
temporary inoonvenience and delay,
but nothing more. The integrity of
the Westminster Southern Railway
enterprise, which was threatened,
has been preserved.and Westminster
rejoices.
We print to-day another communication from "Justice." The
signature would not be necessary to
identify the screed as from the same
pen that produced the effusion
headed "Half-a-Dozen Questions,"
in our issue of Wednesday evening.
Tho same begging of questions ; the
same libellous inuendoes; the same
general irrelevancy; and the same,
but in a greater degree, showing of
the hand—or, rather, the cloven
foot, in this last production. We
reiterate what wo said before, that
"the question of reconsidering tbo
action of the city council and tho
almost unanimous vote of the ratepayers is not a live one," and add
that it is now moro dead than evor,
and therefore decline to follow our
correspondent in his buzzard-like exploits amongst carrion. If that sort
of thing suits our correspondent, we
commiserate his taste, that's all;
but we dont like "dead things" ourselves, and don't intend to inflict
them upon our readers. Trying to
make a point against us for not taking up his six questions in order
(which we have already answered),
"Justice" says : "All that is involved in my six questions is strictly
to the point." Here is a sample
question:
4. If the arrangement ia illegal, and Is
simply a trap set by some adventurous
land boomers and ahrewd Yankee speculators, ia it not well for all loyal citizens
to try to get rid of tho whole business,
and start anew in a straightforward
manner with a company ot undoubted
standing and ability?
When our correspondent has proved
these sweeping and libellous assumptions, and proceedings are taken by
"all loyal citizens to get rid of the
wholo business," then will our correspondent's "dead thing" be "alive"
and The Columbian will deal with
it on its merits.   Our correspondent
must be an injnnctor of the injunctors, and something to boot; for the
real injunctors—those who have had
tho manliness to figure before the
public as such—profess to be satisfied with the setting aside of the
"debentures trust" resolution,   Our
pompous und fulminating "Justice,"
however (save the mark), wants to
fall upon both bylaws and "crush
them like  vipers" —"get rid of
the   whole  business."     "Justice"
says,   vain - gloriously,    that    he
amongst   others, will   not  shrink
from  the duty he owes  to   his
fellow-citizens.   Strange as it may
appear,    though, "Justioe" ' does
shrink most unaccountably, from letting his dear "fellow-citizens" know
who their    great. deliverer  and
mighty windy champion is.   Before
having  "Justice's" communication
of to-day put in  type,  we  waited
upon him and told him  that,   considering the nature of his effusion,
we thought it would be more manly
in him to sign his own proper name
at the foot of the letter,   Ho, however, definitely refused to do so, and
we stated that  we  would publish
his communication without it,whioh
we    bave dono—for  what it  is
worth (t)      Our    correspondent's
strictures on journalism are just
worth as much as bis other remarks,
and his impudent threat against the
editor of this paper—coupled with
his refusal to appear before the
publio aa the author of the  whole
screed- reminds us veiy foroibly of
thetactics pursued by heof the "Black
Hand."    "Justice" is possibly "ono
of the friends" who sent us a private
thnattning letter soma months ago,
beenem w. took a certain coune on
theSonthern Railway matter.   We
have that letter yet   "Eiderdown
and asphaltum'' would make a very
soft plaster for thou who resort to
suoh  tricks,  although  we   never
throateiwd nor would we advise any
suoh   procedure.     "Justice" and
everyone elsi* will fflid that The
Ooloiiwah    Ii    neither   to   be
wheedled nor bdldozed from what it
oonsiden to be its duty in the public
Intereats.
The News agrees with us that
there are good reasons why Vancouver should not grant a bonus to
a flouring mill, but fails to see anything in the case of Westminster
that makes tho condition of things
different. We thought wo had indicated the difference in the article
to whioh our cotemporary refers;
but we think, perhaps.that by going
more into particulars we can make
out a pretty good case for Westminster, either separately, or in conjunction with three or four of the
district municipalities (tho latter
preferably), bonusing a flouring mill
and elevator at this city, whatever
may be thought as to the advisability of Vancouver taking such a
course. Tho News will please make
a note of the fact, which it appears
to havo overlooked in some portions
of its article, that the establishment
wo considered it advisable to bonus
should "be of sufficient capacity and
odiciency to work to the utmost advantage, and Jirst-class in every respect'; and such a mill, we beliovo
tho city nnd rural municipalities,
working togethor, can appreciably
assist, to their own joint and several
advantage besides. Wo did, it is
true, make uso of the expression,
"a small bonus," and comparatively
small it might be, and yot bo more
than "a mere bagatelle towards tho
cost of a really first-class mill." Our
cotemporary appears to undervalue,
too, tho advantago which such an
establishment as we proposed must
be to the city where it is situated,
especially if that city happens to be
the central and distributing point
for a district like Westminster—
the garden of the province—having
easy access by land and water with
every part of the tributary district,
and unrivalled and constantly increasing means of communication
with the outside world. The number of hands employed immediately
in the mill, whatever it > might be
(the News only guesses at it at the
best, and we should settle that and
other points definitely before offering any fixed bonus), would not be
the only advantage, by long odds,
accruing to the city and district in
which tho mill, &c, was located,and
of this fact the News must be perfectly aware. Indeed, feeling convinced that it cannot plead ignorance for the argument which it has
sot up, that Westminster, as well as
Vancouver, should not bonus a flouring mill, we can hardly givo our
cotemporary credit for giving disinterested advice to this city on the
subject. We do not insist that
such is the fact, but it appears to
us that our cotemporary must rest
on one prong or another of a three-
horned dilemma; he has treated the
subject either ignorantly, carelessly,
or interestedly. We are perfectly
satisfied at any rate, however it
would work in Vancouver, that a
"really first-class mill," with storehouses, elevators, Ae., would, in its
construction, and subsequent maintenance (if run "to the most advantage," and business instinct and
foresight should be able to insure
that beforehand), prove an aggregate
advantage to Westminster, compared to which the item of the number of hands employed in the mill
itself is "a mere bagatelle." To
briefly touch npon the advantages—
which must be obvious—a considerable traffic and commerce, local,
provincial, and even foreign, would
necessarily be developed and centre
at this city as a result of the common operations of the mill; agriculture throughout the district and
province would receive a stimulus,
which would react favorably upon
this city at once; and the farming
communities would be sttracted.eveh
more than at present, and bound to
this, their natural centre, to the
mutual benefit of both—and the
News will admit that there is no
such sure foundaiton upon which to
build a city as ajthriving, prosperous
and tributary agricultural environment. If our cotemporary is judging
Westminster by Vancouver,however,
overlooking our particular advantages in the premises, his conclusion
is not so strange; for a flouring
mill at that place would be seriously
handicapped in comparison, on account of difficulties of aocess from
the agricultural centres of the district particularly. With regard to
any foreign trade that might be
done, Westminster is equally, if not
better circumstanced to handle that
to advantage, We would advise
our future councillors to give this
subject ofa flouring mill their best
study, before they take any one's
word—not even that of the News—
that "therein little value to be
derived from such an industry."

Tho following story comes to the List-
iner from a Maine city, and it strikes him
hat for once he may break, in its behalf,
he old rule never to call a story a good
no before it Is told:
One evening, not long ago, there was
ires ed in thia city an old gentleman of
osition and cheery habits. The police-
lan said he had found tbe old gentleman
n the street very drunk. The com*
ilaint was entered against him, but, as
e seemed to be able to get about, he
ras released on his recognisance and
ent home in a hack, which he paid for
rith great alacrity. When his case came
ip in Court the only witnesses summened
o prove his condition were tbo police-
nan and the old family servant of tho
raised, a faithful and devoted retainer.
The policeman had given his testimony, which waa unqualifiedly to the
act of the old gentleman's Intoxication,
'hen the old servant was called to the
tend. There was a mingled expression
f indignation and determination on his
ountenance. He testified flatly,tothe
urprise of the Court-room, tbat the old
tan waa sober when he came home,
'he Prosecuting Attorney proceeded to
uestlon.
"You say that Ur,-—tm Holier when
ie came home?" -,—
"Yes, air "

"Did you put him to bed?".
"Ye*, sir."
; "And ho was perfectly sober?"
'"Ye*,-dr."    ^
"What did he say when 70a put hlm

f^'Ho said, "Good nifjM."' "
["Anything else?"
"He said us how I wns to call him
iarly."
"Anythlnkelser'J**"""
■"Yes, sir."
"What was It? Tell us exactly what ho
aid—overy word."
"He said as now I was to wake and
all him early, for he was to he Queen ol
he May 1"
The court-room roared. And In spite

A friend told me an amnslng ex-
erienco the other day which illustrates
he ingenuity which a man when ho
rants a drink very badly will exerciso
a order to obtain relief for his inordinato
ppetite. It appears that a young man
pproached him on the street, aud telling
piteous tale of privation and woe, solic-
ed sufficient to purchase a meal. My
riend. who is peculiarly open to theso
ppeals, much to tho detriment of his
uree, gave the fellow all he had about
im in change, ten cents, telling him that
i'ould at all events keep him from starv-
og. Seizing the mony, the man started
fl, and was Joined by a companion who
ad beon watching developments from a
hort distance, nnd [the two made off at
round pace in earnest consultation, nnd
rere followed out of curiosity by my
lend. The two entered a saloon whero
ihlsky is retailed at ten cents a glass,
ud the first man, throning down hia
line, called for whisky strajglit. Seising
ie bottle, he poured out a level tumbler*
il, much to tne secret indignation of tho
artender, who muttered something
bout "taking a bath." Raising the glass
> his lips, tho fellow drank half the con-
ants, when, suddenly stopping with a
10k of disguBt, ho said, "what's tho mat-
sr with, this whisky anyhow ?" "Naw-
__.'," replied the knight ol the white
bron and the Alaska diamond head-
era*, "you must he off yer base j there
In't nnwthin' the matter with it."
."Let mo taste it," said the friend, and
iking the glass he drained It to tho
rega. "I don't see nothing the matter
rltn it." "Well, I may be wrong," said
ie other, and the two wero leaving tflo
.loon when tho bartender, whose anger
ad changed into admiration, said:
Look here, you two chaps, if ever you
re hard up tor a drink, come in hero
nd I'll stand treat. I've keen in tho
usiness for ten years and thought 1
new all the ropes, hut this takes tho
ike." - My friend was of the same
pinion, and said if ho had another dime
1 his pocket he would have bestowed it

Grip's Comic Almanac.
This well-known annual, for 1880, is
now in tho bookstores. For ten year.
Canada's "own and only" comic almanac has delighted her peoplo, and tho
new number is decidedly the best of
the lot. Tho calendar pages are unique
and ingonious; the double psge cartoon,
"Irrepressiblo Tug of War," is first-
class, whilo thero are soveral full-page
cartoons of no loss merit, and any
number of side-splitting illustrations.
Tho letter-press is capital reading. Ton
cents will secure tho book at any
newsdealer's—a modest tax for ao enjoyable a melange, surely.

La Blanche The detectivo showed
a number of letters and other documents which ho said were La Blanche's
private papers. Somo of them are
written in Greek, and all relate to
many of his swindling schemes. They
were dug up to-day in the yard in the

CORRESPONDENCE.
8u.Hl.lne aud Gloom.
This morning broke fino and clear.
The sun at the proper moment peeped
over the tallest peak on Mount Baker,
and, after taking a hurried glance to
observo if any injunctors wore about,
rose boldly and shed its beauteous rays
into many a smiling homo. But why
were a few blinds drawn close? And
why, when all else seemed bright and
cheerful, did a fow mortals slink along
the streets dejectedly, restless and apparently in deep gloom! The city sage
was asked the reason for a sight so
strange. "Look," said he taking a
Columbian from his pocket and pointing to tho word 'Victory,' "the injunotors have failed to shut out the bright
and glorious sun of enterprise and pro-
gross from Westminster, and consequently thoy are sad. Thoy love gloom
nnd thoir eyes cannot bear the happy
light of others'success.   Adieu,"

No one should miss the opportunity
to see Katie Putnam at Herring's
Opera Houso Monday night. The play
"Dad's Girl," is a romantic and picture-quo comedy on the order of the
"Pearl of Savoy," nnd has mot with
the most pronounced success every*
where presented. The following ia
from the Atlanta Constitution, which
is the leading journal of the south:—
"There must indeed be aomething extraordinary in this little woman to
maintain, us she does, so universal a
hold on tho affections of our people,
which is especially marked among the
Indies, whoso pet sho seems to bo. It
must be the womanliness thut is in
her. We do not know what else besides her incomparable excellence as
an actress; but there is something,
and, as said, it must be tlie woman
that is in hor—that is, all those higher
attributes whioh combine to make woman what our highest conception accords tho sex. Sho cannot go into tho
deeper emotions ot her plays without
weeping whenever it would seem that
teats should be, and so of the other
emotions. She is in sympathy with
her character, whether it bo pathetic
or revorse; therefore, when women
woep, or when strong men, aa they
often do, give way, thoy need not be
ashamed, for the little woman at whom
they look, and who sways them by ths
magic of her power at her own aweet
will, is just as deeply affected, and
would no doubt bo glad to exchange
place in order that she might for the
moment lealizo that what.ahe saw waa
not real. She feels it as if it wore ao,
and in thia hor wonderful power is ac>
counted for."
Jabcih Snow, Gunning . Cove, N, S.,
writes: "I waa completely prostrated
with the asthma, but hearing of Dr.
Thomas Eclecirio Oil. I procured a bottle, and it has dono me so muoh good
that I got another, and before it was
used, I was well, My son was oured of
a bad oold by the nse of half a bottle, It
goes like wild-fire, and makes cures
wherever it is used."

Editor Colombian:—In your issue of
tho 12tli inst. I was pleased to notice
that you promised to answer tlio six questions iu tlie communication I sent you,
because Z believe a reply to thorn is tlie
only means you havoof justifying, iu the
leant degree, the causo you represent,
and tho only way you can givo a reason
for the abuse that has been lavished on
the injunctors, and those who sympathize
with tliem. But as yon now refuse to do
what you promised, and to give information which many of our citizens and
ratepayers are anxious to obtain, I will
meet you on your own ground, (barring
the scurrility), and make a fow statements, which I challenge you or any of
your loquacious contributors to disprove.
1. You say that "tho question ot reconsidering the action of the city council
and tbo almost unanimous vote of the
ratepayers is not a live ono." Now, I
emphatically deny this, because any
action that is illegal and tends to fraud,
gives rise to a "Uve" issue, and ono that
has a right to live till tbo wrong tbat
called it into life is righted, and there*
fore all that ia involved in my six questions Is strictly to tho point,
2. Even if 206 ratepayers should vote
for a scheme that is illegal and bas a
semblance of crookedness, and one ratepayer vote against it, that one is under
no obligation to submit to the will of the
260, nay it may bo his duty to resist it.
The parliament and the King of England
could not make Hampden consent to pay
40 shillings of illetjal ship money, and
every honest man justifies his refusal, as
tho citizens of .New Westminster, ere
long, will justify the patriotic injunctors
nntf tiiuii fiiciiAr, Thftrnfore. neither
the enthusiastic resolution of tho 14th
ult., nor the disapproval of tho whole
world is a "signal rebuke" to men who
stand upon principle and right.
3. Although at first the injunctors may havo only thought of pre*
venting the effect of Mr. Shilo's
dangerous resolution, yet if on invos*
tigation they found the wholo arrange*
ment rotten to the core, they have a riant
to attack and quash tho by-law or bylaws, yes to crush them liko vipers, and
thereby save the city from irreparable
injury.
4. In this fume tho injunctors have no
"hand" that they wish to conceal; for
thoy hold all the trumps except tho knave,
and that card is not likely to win a trick.
5 So long as the Southern Railway
scheme remains as It is, a dangerous trap
to the future welfare of the oity, the injunctors and other sensible people who are
deeply interested in tho prosperity of the
place will continue their hostility to it;
oor sball)any loud-mouthed windy threats
of ''eiderdown and asphaltum" causo
thorn to shrink from tho duty they owe
to themselves and their fellow citizens.
It ill becomes the inexperienced and those
havingno vested rightsin the place to prate
about and dictate to some of tho heaviest taxpayers as to how they should act
in this railway question. Wc are all
anxious to havo tno Southern Bailway
built and tho 8150,000 bonus expended
on the works specified in tbo by-laws,
namely, steam ferry and workshops, and
no other.
Your delicate!) worded reference to
"tar and feathers" is a disgrace to journalism. Threatened to be tarred and
feathered for doing what the highest
tribunal in the huid declares to bo legal
and just. Threatened with mob law for
doing our duty and exercising our rights
as oitizens, God help the city if it has
come to this pass. Snch threats and
blackguardism iB only worthy of a maudlin savage, and I intend to tako such
steps as will punish and prevent you from
again publishing auch lawless productions. Justice.
