NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Tacoma ledger ot a late dato
makes the followingsonsiblc remark :
It is to be hoped that nn amendment
tothe constitution may some day
bo made by which the president of
the United States may be chosen
by'a direct vote of the people, there-
by abolishing the absurd electoral
college and its complicated machinery. ^^^
< alnicnoi says : The Italian senate has rejeoted, by a small majority,
the bill to extend political suffrage
to women. Italy is about the last
country in Europe in whioh the
women should becomo enfranchised.
The mon ure not intelligent enough
to. vote, and the women are even-
more ignorant than the men. Should
the franchise be extended to Italian
women, the priests would make successful politicians, and could easily
hold the balance of. tbe power by
exercising a little priestly influence.
Supersition would prove a powerful
vote-catching weapon.
The Grand Forks Herald says
that while the Manitoba buffalo
were en route to that city, "two
heifers aud a calf were killed in the
cars by their wild companions. The
animals were unloaded in the stock
pens, and a large number of peoplo
took occasion to see the genuine
buffalo in all their native glory. The
hide was stripped from the three
dead ones by J. H. Dobell. While
getting the animals back on the
cars, a year-old calf, three quarters
buffalo, was injured so that it had
to be taken out again, snd wu left
here in charge of Mr. Dobell." The
animals have been shipped south to
Kansas Oity from St. Paul
Says an ex.: The Osman Digma
who is the medium of peremptory
messages to the garrison at Suakim
is the same individual who has several times boen reported dead. He
does not stay dead, nowevrr, but
pops up every few mouths in front
of a large foroe, and as lively us ever.
The Mahdi believed to be at Khar-
mum bus nlwayB been regarded as
lilt1 successor of the Mahdi who put
Gcnoi'11] Gordon to death, but he
may too turn out to be the only nnd
original filso prophet of the
Soudan. Such is the uncertainty
of the news from that part of tlio
world, just like the Ottawa del-
patches in the Now York papers.
It is reported from Oonneeticut
that a teamster named Michael J.
Cavanagh. who was recently elected
to the Legislature, has become
insane on account of his political
success. As reported, '-one of
Michael's vagaries is that at the
next session of the legislature a
large amount of boodle is to be distributed among tho members. He
is already discussing the best way
to invest his portion," This may
be a form of insanity peculiar to
Connecticut, but America fears that
if legislators holding this hallucination in other statei were confined
in tho insane asylums, there would
bo numerous vacancies in the
legislatures.  	
A curious photographic apparatus,
in which a camera is raised by a
rocket and lowered by a parachute,
is being developed by a French inventor, M Amedee Denisse. In its
experimental form, the cylindrical
camera has twelve lenses round its
circumference with a sensitive plate
in the center, and it provided with
a shutter whioh opens and instantly
closes as the apparatus commences
to fall. The descent is eased by the
opening of the attached parachute,
which is drawn back to the operator by a cord attached before the
firing of the rocket For securing
bird's-eye views, tho photo-rocket
offers several important advantages
over balloon photography, suoh as
comparative cheapness in operating
and freedom from risk in case of
uso for military reconnoitcring.
A writer in a Halifax paper, concluding a lot of good advice to farmers, says: Uo generous in your
homes, and good to your boys.
Make farm life so pleasant that they
will want to be farmers, Give them
plenty of education, and loss land.
Fay thorn when they work. Why
not hire your own boy instead of
Btrangersl Don't get mod when
they ssk for the horse and a holiday,
but just think about the first time
you took a girl to a picnic. Just
remember you were young once
yourselves. Some men work the life
nearly out of their boyi, giving them
no pocket money, clothe them in
about four dollars a year, and thus
drive them off of the farm and out
of tho country, and then blame Sir
Oharles Tupper for it, Farmers
have driven more boys out of Nova
Scotia then politicians have, and I
would like to lee them Itop it.
Boys are getting too cuts to work
fifteen houn a day, wear home-made
clothes to meeting, and step around
all winter in green hide moccasins
which makes each foot look like a
three-year-old iteer; and then if he
wants to buy an ice-cream he hai to
catch two rabbits before he oan
afford it. Treat your boyi well
nnd they will stiok to the farm.
Is thoro anything moro annoying than
having yonr corn stopped upon! Is thoro
anything moro delightful than getting
rid of it! Holloway's Corn Cure will do
it.   Try it and bo convinced,

Washinoton, Deo. 28.—Secretary
Bayard when shown the despatch from
Philadelphia giving the account of the
outrages perpetrated by the Spanish
officials, at Porto Bico, on the American Brigantine Josofn, and of the captain being oompelled to pay tho illegal
fine of 94,000, whioh was not refunded
when the error was shown said:—"The
department investigated the case and
is satisfied that the owners and officers
of Josefa were wronged and that the
fine should never have been imposed
or collected. Spanish authorities have
been requested to refund the fino, but
no answer has yet beon received."
Secretary Bayard denied that he had
requested or intended to request that
tbe Galena and Yantio be sent to
Porto Bico. He could see no use for
suoh action uutil the Spanish authorities declined to refund the fine.
SERIOUS RES IN PORTLAND.
Portland, Deo. 28.—What promises
to be a very disastrous fire is now raging. The Old Bijou rink building on
Federal st. burst into flames which
burst simultaneously from scores of
places. PThe alarm of fire was at once
sent out but there was a mistake in
the signals and a long delay occurred
beforo tho engine arrived. By the
time the firemen reached tho spot
the rink was doomed and their
attention was directed towards
the neighboring buildings. The
rink waa opposito a row of valuable
buildings. The »ind was high and the
flames leaped from tho burning build*
ing to its neighbors. lVupte wero
driven from Lincoln Park Square, on
which tho rink fronted, by tlio intense
heat snd the rolling billows of fire. At
12:20 o'olook the fire had burned
through, from Federal st. tu Newbury
st, nml Ihoflkmos had taken possession
of the reiidence of Mr. Compton. Tho
house will bo a total loss. It was insured for $3,000. All that is left of
tho rink is a few timbers. It was used
for a military school snd the loas of
the proprietors will be very heavy, the
inaurance being light Tho houae of
Josinh Burnhnm, adjoining the rink,
is now burning but may be partly saved. The fire is supposed to be of incendiary origin. It is impossible, at
present, to estimate the damage done.

THE POPE'S ADDRESS.
Rome, Deo. 24.—Tho pope addressed
the sacred college to-day. He gave
thanks to God for tho blessings the jubilee had brought him. Ho affirmed with
much feeling his former utterances on
the question of temporal power, and Indignantly rejected the accusation that he
was on enemy of Italy. He urged Catholics everywhere to agitato In a legal
manner for the restoration of papal
supremacy, and spoke in deprecation of
tlio recent liberal enactments in Italy.
His address throughout was unusually
violent and bitter. Tho speech referred
exclusively to tbe Vatican and Italy. He
said tho whole world could see in what a
painful situation he was placed. One
could only ask, "How far will they go?"
At the present time a systematic war
was being waged, Even the person of
tho pope was exposed to the threats of
tho mob, The enemies of the holy aee
had weapons enough already to injure
the papacy, and if thoso did not suffice
tbey were prepared to manufacture fresh
weapons. It was persistently asserted
that the popo was an enemy of Italy, but
this was simply made to mask tho roal
objects of perfidious spite against the
ohurch, and that object was to render it
at once hostile to the papacy. To vindicate tho right of tho pontiff was in reality
to advance the prosperity of Italy. To
demand that the greatest moral power iu
the world should possess real sovereignity in Italy, where providence placed tlio
ohurch centuries ago, was not an aot of
hostility to the country. Tho fact that
the bishops In foreign lands were labor*
ing for the restoration of tho pope's temporal rishts proved that the interests of
the whole Catholic churoh wen bound up
in tho cause,

What weather wo nre having I
is an exclamation that is almost involuntarily breathed by everyone
And how enchanting is our incomparable landscape, under thoso
"Italian skies" and in the translucent autumn—for it cannot be
called winter, as it is more like
spring—air! The stranger from the
east, recollecting thnt this is December, must imagine himself in a
veritable fairyland, mid all who aro
so happy as to have their homes
here must thankfully exclaim, with
the "sweet singer of Israel," "Truly
the lines have fallen unto us in
pleasant places; yea, wo have a
goodly heritage," The slightest at
tempt at contrasting our situation,
climatically, with our brethren at
the east and in the interior of the
continent, can only increase our
self-gratulations. New Westminster,
lituated as it is on a gentle slope on
the north bank of the Fraser, is as
a garden laid open to the sun, and
in tho winter season gets tho full
advantage of its southern exposure,
while in the summer we know no
such thing as excessive heat. Our
climate and situation are assets'
that we have got so accustomed to
u to undervalue them, but they
will yet tel| mightily as factors in
the upbuilding of the royal city
that is to be.
The development of socialistic
ideas in Germany, says an exchange,
hss induced the state to enter into
competition with professional agitators. Within a few years legislation
has attempted much to ameliorate
the condition of the working classes.
In 1883 tliu reichstag passed a law
providing for the support of workingmen for n certain period from a
fund raised by employers  and  employees.   Contribution to this fund
is compulsory upon   workmen   employed in masses, and   thoso   working independently haw the option
of joining tho relief   societies.     In
1884 an act was   passed  providing
insurance against accidents and ox-
tending to  every   industry   which
involves any risk to workmen.    A
still more  comprehensive act  has
been prepared by the  government,
but has not yet passed the reichstag.
It proposes relief for all workingmen
when disabled by age or other causes j
not covered by the preceding acts
Every person  coming   within  its
provisions on attaining  his  seventieth year will be entitled to give up
work and receive a yearly pension of
$30 for the rest  of  his  life.   The
government, the employers and the
workingmen, each bear one-third of
the burden  thus  imposed.   Even
thii proposed  legislation does not
set the limit to which the government may go.   In his recent address
at the opening of the reichstag the
emperor announced his intention of
carrying out his grandfather's ideas
regarding soeial legislation.   Without hoping to abolish  poverty by
law, he considered it the duty of the
government to alleviate it as muoh
ns possible, and "by organic institutions to bring about a recognition of
. the truth that the manifestation of
lovo for one's neighbor is  tho duty
of the state us a public community."
This seems to indicate the intention
of tho government to meet  socialistic agitation by state socialism at
all points.   The enormous dispnrity
which exists, sido by   side,  in  the
conditions of the very rich and the
very poor in the great cities of the
^/Vorld—in London,   Eng.,  for instance, and even in many cities in
the United States—would seem  to
call, and loudly, too, for some recognition by other governments beside
the German, their duty to attempt
to alleviate poverty as for us possible, instead of adding to ita burdens,
as is too often done  by  legislation
having    in   view  the advantage,
rather, of the wealthier classes.   A
hint, at least, may be   taken  from
Germany's good intentions in  this
•natter.
In answer to tlie question, What
makes one town grow into a city
while others with good localities remain' villages tan exchange says:
"It is because in the one cose there
aro men of push and energy who
are not afraid to spend their time
and money to boom their town.
They erect -substantial buildings,
organize stock companies and establish faotories nnd seoure railroads,
work for public improvements and
use every means in thoir power to
induce peoplo to locate in their city;
they send newspapers and circulars
to every acquaintance whom they
think can be induced to visit their
place; then the attractions are
shown to him, and he is treated
with sn much kindness that he fills
In love with the city at once. A
town only tuooeeds when it begins
to work for itself." Just so, and
this ii what we sM> trying to hani-
mer into the oitizens of this "little
burgh" -right along. Too much
emphasis eannot be put upon
tliis
maxim, that "a town only succeeds
when it begins to work for itself."
We would  ask our Westminster
readers to peruse the above  quotation all over again, and then to  repeat the process till they get it  by
heart.   The quotation in question is
au American recipe for  making  a
village grow into a city,  ond, that
our    cousins are  adepts  at this
sort of business, and well  qualified
to describe the means by which it is
accomplished, no one will question.
Look at their cities on  this  coast,
for instance, and in this connection
it will   not   be  necessary to   cite
others besides Tacoma and   Seattle,
both of whioh have a population of
between fifteen and twenty  thousand, and rapidly growing, and a few
years ago  neither of  thoso  cities
were   larger    than   Westminster.
Seriously, we aro moro tyros—moss-
backs—at city building.   We mako
a little  splurge occassionally,   and
then, thinking that wo havo "cut a
hog in two," to use a vulgarism, rest
on our oars and tako a   snooze.   A
uniformly wide-uwake spirit, pervading every citizen, that despises no
opportunity,   howover small, that
will tend to advancement, and even
makes present sacrifices oocasiounly
fnr future advantage, and that will
bo turned usido by no  obstacle,   is
the only guarantee for  steady nnd
rapid progress and tho   successful
evolution of n oity from   a village
We hopo   that  our  citizens   will
recognize  these  facts,  and   make
them the  basts tot  their  general
policy throughout the coming year,
and give thoir earnest cooperation
and support to all reasonable measures that may be introduced by our
new council or suggested by the most
wideawake and enterprising of our
citizens.   Wo   cannot    expect to
progress  satisfactorily  as   a city,
though, if only  a fraction  of  the
citizens    aro   intelligently   doing
their best to that end, and dragging
the remainder like a dead weight at
their heels. If tho royal oity is ever
to attain to that glorious destiny
for which nature has so   eminently
fitted her, it will  only be brought
about by every citizen taking  his,
or her, part.     (Yes, we want the
ladies, too; once arouse tho ladies to
a patriotic interest in the  progress
and welfare of this beautiful oity—
in embroyo—and, who shall answer
for the results I   In this connection,
it will not be out of place to remind
the ladies that they have  votes in
the forthcoming munioipal election,
if their names were on  the voters'
list    used   at the   last   election.
Hereafter, every lady,   married   or
single, who possesses in   hor   own
name, or has a joint ownership   in,
property to tbo value of $100, nnd
will acknowledge to being   "of the
full nge of fcwenty-ono years"   and
take tho trouble   to  register,  will
havo n vote   So, it   will   be seen
that the ladies have an actual voico
in the future of the city, as well as
their undisputed moral influence, if
they choose to  exert   it.)     Westminstor finds herself in  a friendly
but keen rivalry,    with   go-ahead
cities on both sides of the line, and
"eternal vigilance" and ah unremitting turning to account of all opportunities, great and  small,   on the
part of individual citizens as well as
of our representative bodies, must be
the price of an honorable   advancement among onr sister cities.    Lot
all short-sighted  selfishness, then,
and all trivial differences, be laid
aside,   and   everyone    co-operate
heartily and intelligently toward a
common, and, if wo chooso, a glorious destiny.

'4 TWO NEPHEWS.
I At the parlor window of n pretty villa,
far Walton-on-Thanu's, ant, one ovi-nhig
■ dusk, an old man and a young woman.
■*'** age of the man im-*! t bo tome
lty; uhilit hiB companion had cer-
y not reached nineteen. Her heanti-
, blooming face and active, light and
bright figure, were in strong contrast
nth the worn coun tenancy and bent
lame of tho old man, but in his eye and
J the comers of his mouth were the in-
Ications of a gay self-confidence, which
do and suflenng had damped, but not
ktinguished.
J "No use looking; any more, Mary,"
'' 1 he, "neither John Moado nor Peter
ich will be here beforo dark.   Very
lard that when a sick uncle asks two
bphews to come and seo him they can't
bmo at onco.   The duty is simple in the
jstremo—only to help me to die, and
1 a what I cnooso to leave them in my
I.  Pooh I when I was a young man,
1 have done it for my uncle with tho
most celerity.   But the world's getting
uite heartless." '_
"Oh, sir I" said Mary,
j "And what does'Ohsir 1' moan?" said
, "D'ye think I sha'nt die ? I know
.ter. A little more and there'll bo an
1 of old Billy Collett. He'll havo left
Jiie dirty world for a cleaner—to the
Ireat Borrow (and advantage) of his
iffectionate friends. Ugh 1 givo me a
■lass of the doctor's -atuff."
1 The girl poured some medicine into a
tlass, and Collett, after having contemplated it for a moment with infinite dis-
ufc managed to get it down.
"I tell you what, Miss Mary Sutton,"
lid he, "I don't by any means qpprovo
t your 'Oh. air,' and 'Dear me,' and tho
>st of it, when l'vo told you how I hate
i be called 'sir' at all. Why, you couldn't
i more respectful if you were a charity-
il and I a beadle in a gold-laced hat.
[one of your nonsens •, Mary Sutton, if
ou please. I've been your lawful
[uardian now for six months, and you
' "i to know my likings and dislik-
''My poor father often told mo how you
Bislikcd ceremony," said Mary.
"Your poor fnthortold you quite right*,"
lid Mr. Collett. "Fred Sutton was a man
f talent—a capital fel low I His only fault
'as a natural inability to keep n farthing
l his pocket. Poor Fred 1 he loved me
-I'm sure he did. He bequeathed me
His only child—and it isn't overy friend
■vould do that!"
"A kind and generous protector you
pavo been!"
"Well, I don't know j I've tried not .to
be a brute, but I daro say X have been.
£>on't I Bpeak roughly to you sometimefl?
[Haven't I given you good, prudent,
' "ly advice about John Meade, and
nade myself quito disagreeable, and like
i guardian ?  Come, confess you love this
lonniless nephow of mine."
"Penniless, indeod!" said Mary.
"Ah, there it is I" said Mr. Collett
L'And what business has a poor artiBt to
'all in love with my ward?   Aud vthat
business has my wnrd to fidl In love with
i poor artist?  But that's Fred Sulton's
* ughter  all  over!    Haven't  I  two
phews? Why couldn't you fall in love
.. tli the discreet one—the thriving ono ?
IPeter Finch—considering he's an attorney
I—is a worthy young man.   Ho Is'fn*
Idustrious in the extreme, and attends to
lother people's busiu bs only when he's
■paid for it.    Ho despises sentiment, and
■always looks to the main chance,   tint
I John Meade, my dear Mary, may spoil
Icanvas forever, nnd not grow rich.   1 lo's
1 all for art, ana truth, and social reform
[ and spiritual elevation, and tho   Lord
| knows what   I'etor  Kindi will'rido in
I his carriage and aphis i poor John Meade
as ho trudges on foot!"   ' u -
j    Tho harangue was hero interrupted liy
L n ring at tho gate, nml Mr. Peter Kindi
was announced.   He had scarcely taken
his seat whon another pull at thu I ell
was heard, and Mr. John Mcado was announced.
Mr. Collett eyed his two nephews
with a queer sort of smile, whilst they
made speeches oxpreasivo of sorrow at
the nature of their visit At lost, stopping them—
"Enough, boys, enough," Baid ho.
"Let ns una somo better subject to discuss than the state of an old man's
health. I want to know a little more
about yon both. Unven't seen imi-lr
of you up to tho pn-sont'tltfe, hmT'for
anything I know you may be rogues or
fools."
John Meade seemed rather to wince
under thla address; but Peter Finch sat
calm and confident
To put a case, now," said Mr. Collett,
"this morning n poor wretch ofa gardener
came begging here. Ho could get no
/ work, it seems, ond said ho was starving.
Wellj I knew something about the fellow,
and I believe he only told the truth: so
I gave him a sMIling to get rid of liim.
Now I'm afraid I did wrong. What
reason had I for giving him a shilling?
What claim had he on ine ? What claim
has he on anybody? The value of his
labor in the market is all that a working
man has a right lo: and when his labor
is of no value, why then be must go
wherever else he can. Kh, Peter? That's
my philosophy—what do you think?"
"I quite agree with you, sir," said Mr.
Finch, "perfectly agree with you. The
value of their labor in tlio market is all
that laborers can pretend to—all that
they should have. Nothing nets more
perniciously than tho absurd extraneous
support called charily."
"Hear, hear!" said Mr, Collett.
. "You're A clever fellow, Peter. Go on,
my dear boy, eo on!"
"What results from charitable nid?"
continued Peter. "Tlio value of labor
Is kept at an unnatural level. Stato
charity ts state robbery; private charity
Is public wrong."
'■That's it, l'otci 1" said Mr. Collett.
"What do you think of our philosophy,
John?"
"I don't like it, I don't believe it I"
said John. "You wero quite right to
give tbo man a shilling. I'd havo given
him a shilling myself."
"Oh, you would—would you?" said
Mr. Collett "You're very genorous with
J' -our shillings. Would you fly in tbe
aee of all orthodox political economy,
you Vandal?"
"Yes," said John, Hb the Vandals
flew in the faco of Home, and destroyed
what had become a falsehood and a
nuisance."
"Poor John I" said Mr. Collett   "We
■ shall never make anything of him, Peter.
Really, we'd bettor talk o! something
else.  John, tell us about, the last new
novel 1"
They conversed on various topics,
until the arrival of the invalid's early
•bedtimeparted uncle and nephews for
tho night
Mary Sutton seized an opportunity the
next morning, after breakfast, to speak
with John Meade alone.
"John," aaid Bhe, "do think moro of
your own Interest-ofourlntercst. What
occasion lor you to be ao violent lut
night, and contradict Mr. Collett so
shockingly? I saw'Peter Finch laughing to himself. John, you must bu moro
careful or we shall nover bo married."
"Well, Mary, dear, I'll do my best,"
said John. 'It was that confounded,
Peter, with his chain of Iron maxims,
that made me fly out I'm not on iceberg, Mary."
"I am thankful that you are not," said
Mary; "but px. Iceberg* floats-think of
that, John. Komember—every time
you offend Mr. Collett yon,please Mr.
Finch>
"So I dot" aaid John. "Yes, I'll remember that"
"If you would only try to be a littlo
mean and hard-hearted," said Mary;
"just a little, to begin with. You would
only stoop to conquer, John—and you
deserve to conquer."
"May I gain my deserts, then?" Bald
John. "Are you not to be my loving
wife. Mary? And are you not,to sit at
needle work In my studio, whilst I paint
my .gort historical j>]ct\sre£ Jlg&'ojg
this come to pass if Mr. Collett will do
nothing for us V"
"Ah, how, indeod ?" said Mary. "But
here's our friend, Peter Finch, .coming
through tho gate from his walk. 1
leave you together," and eo saying, sho
withdrew.
"What, Meade?" said Peter Finch, as
ho entered. "Skulking in-doors on a lino
morning liko thia! I've been all through
the village. Not an ugly placo—but
wants looking after sadly, lioails shamefully muddy! Pigs allowed to walk on
tho footpath!"
"Dcadful I" oxd-dmed John.
"I say—you como out pretty strongest
night," Baid Peter. "Quite defied the old
man 1   But I liko your spirit'1
"I have no doubt you do/* thought
John.
"Oh, when I was a youth, I wasallttlo
that way myself." Baid Peter. "But tho
world-tho world, my dear sir—soon
cures all our romantic notions. I regret,
of course, to sec poor people miserable;
but what's tho use of regretting? Ub
no part of tbe business of the superior
classes to interfero with the laws of
supply and demand; poor people must
be miserable. "What can't bo curod
must bo endured."
"That is to say," roturnod John, "what
we can't cure, they must endure ?"
"Exactly so," B;dd Peter.
Mr. ColMt this dny was too ill toloavo
his lied. About upon he requested to seo
bin nephews in his bed room.
They found him propped up by pillows, looking vory weak, but in gool
spirits as usual.
"Well, hoys," said he, "hero I am, yon
Bee; brouglit to an anchor at last 1 The
doctor wiU bo her,' soon, I suppose, to
shake his hood and write recipes. .Humbug, my boys! Patients can do tn- mueh
for iliMuselve,-, I l-otiovo,as dflytfpra cau
do for them; they're all in the dark to
gcthcr-the only difi'erence is that the
patients gropo in Knglish aud tho doctors
grope iu Latin."
"You aro too skeptical, sir," said John
Meade.
'Pooh!" said Mr. Collett. "Let us
change the subject. I want your advice,
Peter and John, on a matter that con-
*i-ns your interests, I'm going to make
my will lo day, and I don't know how to
net about your cousin, iimma Briggs.
Kmma disgraced us by marrying an oilman."
"An oilman I" exclaimed John, i
"A vulgar, shocking oilman 1" Baid Mr.
Collett; "a wretch *.ho not only sold oil,
but soap, candles, turpentine, black-lead
and birch brooms. It wns a droadfu:
hlow to tho family. Her poor, grandmother never goto er it, nnd a maid< u
aunt turned Methodist in despair. Well,
Brings, the oilman, died last week, it
seems, and his widow has written to me,
asking for assistance. Now, I havo
thought of leaving her a hundred a yoar
in my will. What right had she tu
marry agninst the advice of her friends!
What havo I to do with her misfortunes 1"
"My mind: Is quite mado up," said
Peter Finch; "no notico ought to be
taken of her. She mndo an obstinate
and unworthy match—and let her abido
tho consequences!"
"Now for your opinion, John," said
Mr. Collett
"Upon my word, I think I must say
tbe same," raid John 'Meade, bracing
himself up boldly for the part of the
worldly man, "What right had she to
marry—as you obsorvod with great
justice, sir. Let her abido tho consu-
quences—as you v»ry properly rdiuarked,
Finch. Can t she cany un the oilman's
business? I dare say it will support her
very well."
"Why, no," s**id Mr..Collelt; "Briggs
died a bankrupt, and hia widow and
chi.diyn aru destitute,"
"That does not alter the question,"
snid Fetor 1 inch. "Let Brigga' family
do something for her."
"To bo sure!" said Mr. Collett.
"l-riggs* family aro tho people:to do
Bometiiitig for her. Sho inus'nt expect
anything irom US-must she, John?
"Destitute, IsSheV" Bald John. "With
children, too ? Why, this is another
case, sir. You surely ought to notico
her—to assist her. Confound it, I'm
for letting her havo tho hundred a
year."
"Oh, John, John! What a breakdown 1" said Mr. Collett "So you wove
trying, to follow Peter Finch through
•Stony Arabia, and turned back nt tno
soeond step! Here's a bravo traveler for
yon, Peter. John, John, keep to your
Ara'-ia Kolix, and leave, sterner ways to
very diliferent men. Good-bye, both of
you, I've no voice to talk any moro.
I'll think over all you havo aaid.
Uo pressed their hands and they left
thu room. Tho old man was too weak
to spoak tho next day, and, In threo
days after that, ho calmly breathed his
last
Aa scon as the funeral was over, the
will was read by tho confidential man of
business, who had always attended to
Mr, Callett's allairs. The group that sat
mound him preserved a decorous appearance of disinterestedness; nnd the
usual preamble to the will having been
listened to with breathless attention, the
man of business read the following in a
clear voice:
"I bequeath to my niece, Emma.
Briggs, notwithstanding thatahoshocked
her family by marrying nn oilman, the
sum of four thousand pounds; being
fully persuaded that her lost dignity, if
Bho could ever find It again, would do
nothing to provide her with food, or
clothing, or shelter."
John Mcado smiled and Peter Finch
ground his teeth -but in a quiet, respectable manner.
Tho man of business went on with hii
reading.
"Having always held the opinion that
women should bo rondered a rational
aud independent being—and having duly
considered the fact that society practically denies the right of earning ner own
living—1 hereby bequeath to Mary Sutton, the only daughter of my old friend,
Fred, Sutton, the sum ot ten thousand
pounds, which will enable her to marry.
or to roirain single, assho may prefer.
John Mf»db' gave a prodigious start
Upon   hearing  this,  and   Peter   Finch
?;round hit- teeth again—but In a manner
innllv respectable. Hoth, howover, by a
violent oiiort, kept silent
Tbo man of businesa went on with his
reading.
"I havo paid somo attention to tho
character of my nephew; John Moado,
mil have been grieved to find htm much
peWssed with a feeling of philnnthm-
phy, and with a general proferenoo ior
whatever is 'noble nnd true ovdr whatever Is base and false Aa theso tendencies are by no menus such aa can ad-

The Shower af Angleworms.
A communication in last evening's
issue of tho Vancouver World questions
tho truth of a shower of angleworms at
Westminster a few weeks ago. The
writer claims to havo studied the habits
of angleworms and feels certain no such
occurence, as related, happened. For
information of the If'orids correspondent it might be said that theae worms
have been found on umbrellas by
persons who were out during tho
shower, and that Captain Peelo haa
frequently found them in his rain
guage after a storm.
Vancouver Island Elghtbosae.,
It is probable that parliament next
session will be asked to vote an additional appropriation for the proposed
telegraphic system to Bonillu Point,
Vancouver Ialand, where a signal station and lighthouse ore to be erected,
so that the line may be extended to
Capo Beale, the extremo south-west
point of Vancouver Ialand, and which
is 30 miles from Bonilla. It is in the
vicinity of Cape Beale that most of tho
wrecks on that dangerous coast tako
place, and it is therefore a most central position for furnishing speedy relief. A lighthouse and signal station
will be erected at both places.
Mr. Ogllvle.
The many paragrahs in the newspapers relative to the whereabouts of
Mr. Ogilvic, the government surveyor
who went out to the Yukon in the
spring of 1887 with Dr. Dawson, and
wlro since thst time hus been exploring in the Mackenzie river district,
havo led to a good deal of apprehension for his safety on tho part of his
friends. At the depsrtment of the interior, however, no such apprehension
ia felt. It is understood that Mr. Ogilvie is_ now nt one of tho Hudson Bay
posts 'in the Athabasca district, and
that he and his party are simply waiting for the first fall of snow before
coming south on snowshoes, now that
the rivers are icebound.
To be Overhauled.
Tho steamer Yoaemito left for Victoria this morning and on arrival thore
will be docked and completely overhauled. It is the intention of the
owners to mnke a number of important
changes on her, ono of which will bo
the transformation of the ladies' cabin,
on the main deck, into tho dining sn-
loou. The new ladies' cabin will be
up-staira. Tho extensive changes on
the Yosemite will occupy some months
in completing and when she is ready
for work again she will be as well fitted
up rs any vessel on the coast. It ia
probable the S. S. Islander will bo
used an excursion steamer next summer and will make trips up the coast
to Alaska. If so, the Yosemite will
replace her on the Victoria-Vancouver
route for a few months. Tho C.P.N.
Co. deierves much credit for the determined effort, it is making to keep
the steamers of the line second to none
on tho cout.

■Mm Creek Mian.
Mr. James Tallyord arrived from
the Rook Crook mine, yesterday nnd
reports work as very brisk at that
bustling camp. In Douglas cross-cut
ledge, a good body of ore has been
found; and the tunnel is boing driven
rapidly forward, a depth uf over one
hundred feot having now been reached.
All the oro as yet taken out at the
camps looks well, and a shipment is
now ou the road to Salt Lake for tost.
Another shipment from the Carbonate
is also coming down for Mr. Tate, of
this city. The Alice ind tho Emma
claims have boon surveyed and the
main Cariboo ledge traced into the
Emma claim as well as into the Oknna-
son claim. The new claim on tho
Okanagon is looking better than ever
and the claims will bo worked all winter. Many American miners from the
Coeur d'Alone and Salmon river are
coming in, and about fifty minors in
all aro now making tho camp thoir

The riolh lOall.td.
Constable Pearce returned from Victoria yesterday and brought the two
web. of oloth with him which woro
seized from the Chinaman Ling Sam.
Tho gooda were taken to D. Drysdale
& Go. and proved, on comparing the
private maws, to bo soma of the cloth
stolen from that firm two months ago,
Ling Sam probably suspected that the
goods would be identified and choao
death to the term of imprisonment
which was auro to follow. Some weeks
ago Constable Pearce, having traced
the thieves as far is Vancouver,
wrote to the Victoria police aaking
them to watch the Chinese pawn shops
for certain webs of cloth which woro
likely to turn up there, snd Iho leisure
of these good, wu tho outcomo of his
instructions, it ii to be hoped tbat
this instance, as well as others, in
which our wily Polico Officer Pearce
hss proved himiolf "too many" for
his man, will, in the futuro, have a
deterrent effect on the heathen Chinee
when he may fool in a mood for perpetrating those vain tricks for whioh
he is peculiar.
Mr. Peter Vermott, Hochelaga, P. ().,
writes: "Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil cured
me of Hhoumatlsin after I tried many
medicines to no purpose. It is a good
medicine." Just think of it—yon can
rolicve the twinges of rheumatism, or tlio
moat painful attack of neuralgia—you
can check a cough, and heal bruised or
broken skin, with a bottle of Dr. Thorn.

Preferred Death t. lu.prlaonm.al.
The Chinaman, Lang Ah Sam, who
was yesterday morning charged iu the
police court with ha,ing stolen cloth
found in his possession, and who was
delivered over to the Westminster
polico to be taken to tho Royal City for
trial this morning, defeated the law by
suiciding in his cell yesterday afternoon. Tho successful attempt at self-
destruction was most determined and
deliberate, tho Chinaman having removed hia waist sash, and fastening it
to one of the bunk standards, hanged
himself by it, his feot touching the
ground. He hsd ovideutly curled up
his logs and deliberately choked himself
to death. Thoro being a raving lunatic
in tho opposite cell, any noise he may
havo mndo would havo been unheard.
The suicido was lost seen at four o'clock
and was found dead by the officer in
charge when ho brought supper to the
cell at half-past fivo o'clock. Dr. Milne,
who waa in the station at tlio time,
made an immediate examination, but
tho spark of life had lied. An inquest
will be held in tho police oflice this
morning at 11 o'clock.—Colonist,
lllrmpt'il Suleldr.
About 8 o'clock this morning T.
Thompson, gunmakor, of Johnson st.,
attempted suicide at his residence on
Albert st, off Cook. Tbo circumstances of tho case wero about as follows: Mrs. Thompson had prepared
breakfast and had culled her husband
twice, receiving an answer that he
would "he thero in a minute." As ho
failed to come, sho went into the bedroom and was horrified to discover him
sitting on a chair, razor in hand, with
an enormous gosh cut in his throat.
The poor woman wns almost paralyzed
by the sight, but recovering ber presence of mind she summoned tho aid of
a neighbor, and Dr. Milne was sent for.
The doctor on arriving found the unfortunate man in an almost exhausted
condition from lots of blood, and with
a gash across his throat six inches in
length, tho windpipe being completely
seyered. The wound was dressed and
it is possible with good treatment, and
providing nothing should occur to interfere with the healing process,
Thompson may recover. A demented
mental condition, cauaed by business
troubles, is said to be tho cause of the
rash deed. During last summer he
wus in Alaska, and at ono time was
loat for 17 days, during which timo
himself and his conipanions lived on
fish. When found Thompson was in a
half demented condition, and he* has
probably never recovered from the ef-
feota of the exposure st that time.—

tr As we are known to carry one of the largest and best assorted stocks hi the
Province, it will not be neceaaary to enumerate. An early inspection will convince
the public tlmt we mean business, and that the stock must be closed out before the

ever been offered before in this Province.
