Principal Grant says the Japanese
are abandoning rice in favor of
bread, and he can Bee no reason why
the fertile prairies of the Northwest
should not largely supply Japan
with the wheat she will require for
her thirty-eight millions of people.
Says an exchange : Pending the
ollicial announcement the cable
correspondents are offering the poet
of British minister at Washington
to almost every prominent man
whose services are not otherwise
engaged. Mr. Chamberlain is the
latest person mentioned for the
position, but he has married a wife

' 'The following ia not very encouraging for temperance people:
A temperance medal has been found
inside a crocodile caught in the
Daintree river, Queensland, The
medal ia one of the .usual kind
issued by the temperance societies,
and bore the date 1880. The name
on the medal was A. D. Edwards,
Enquiries have been made, but
nothing was known of the person
name is given.
An exchange says : A. E. Hathe*
way, a young man from St, John,
N. B., who was arrested and im
prisoned at Fort McKinney,
Wyoming Territory, on the false
charge of being a deserter from the
V. S. army, has obtained an
indemnity of $1,000, from the XT. 3.
treasury through representations
made by Oanadian an Imperial
governments, Even this is poor
remuneration for the loss of health
and property whioh Mr. Hatheway
suffered during this brutal imprisonment,
Tho Kew Haven Neios is responsible for the following: A professor
in the theological school called upon
a lady in this city and Bhe was out.
Her little son, about four years old,
was playing in the front yard. The
professor Baid: "My little man,
can you  remember  to  tell  your
mother that Prof. called to see
her?" Young America wrinkled
his brows and presently replied
unconcernedly: "There are so
many things I wan't to remember
and can't remember that I don't
think I shall trouble myself to try
to remember things I don't want to
remember."  	
Roman Catholic archbishops in
America, says an exchange, have
received orders from Koine to gather
statistics concerning marriages of
Catholics with persons of other
faiths. While mixed marriages are
forbidden as a rule, permission is
granted in certain cases, especially
when the non Catholic party is
likely to bo brought into the faith.
The stipulation is always made that
the children of the union shall be
brought up in the Catholic faith.
Circulars are to be sent out to
priests, with a list of questions concerning the mixed marriages in
their parishes, and the information
is likely to result in more stringent
regulations,   	
Ib is hard for the clergy to please
everybody nowadays, says an exchange. A Boston woman complains that her pastor never looks at
her when he preaches, but devotes
all his attention to the sinners on
the other side of the churoh. For
this reason she says that his sermons
do not have the moral effect on her
which they ought to have, On the
other hand, a Chicago woman
recently complained that her pastor
invariably looked at her when he
was preaching, especially when he
denounced humbugs and hypocrites,
and she wanted to know if it wasn't
an outrage to treat respectable pew-
holders in this way. When the
clergyman finally heard of her
grievance he laughingly explained
that he wasn't looking at the woman
at all when sho thought he was,
but at a certain pillar behind her,
tho sight of which, for somo mysterious reason, always seemed to
clarify his thought.
John Bright, on his deathbed, has
no warmer friend, it is said, than
the Empress Frederick of Germany.
She makes daily enquiries about the
state of his health, and has written
him numerous letters. The Manchester Guardian of December 17
says Bhe made Mr. Brlght's acquaintance when ho waited upon the
Queen in 1868 to' receive her
majesty's approval of his appointment as president of the Board of
Trade. Tho Princess, as she was at
thnt tinii', then said with enthusiasm
that sho read all Mr, Bright'a
speeches, nnd had long wished to
liecome personally acquainted with
him, She made many allusions of
tjruteful admiration as to a speech
in whioh Mr. Bright had defended
the Queen's habit of seclusion in her
widowhood. The G.iardianadAa:—
"It has often been told how some
courtier in attendance heard Mr.
Bright say that with her royal
highness'permission he would tell
her what Mr. Buchanan, the United
States minister, had said to him of
hor—'That wherever the went her
presence was hailed like that of a
beam of sunshine."

Chief Brown, together with his assistant

New York, Jan. 7.—Judge Beach,
in thu supreme court to-day, refused
to interfere with tho action of tho trus*
tees of St Patrick's cathedral in declining to permit tho body of old John
McGuire to be buried in Calvary cemetery. He practically upholds tho
action of the church, He dismisses
the cases and uys that the matter is
not one for judicial interference, but
for appeal to the church authorities.
McGuire died while attending one of
Dr. McGlynn's anti-poverty meetings.
His burial was refused on the ground
that he did not die in the faith.
CHINESE EXCLUSION AOT.
Washinoton, Jan. 7.—A motion
was made in the supreme court of the
United States to-day by ex-Governor
Hoadley, of Ohio, to advance for argument the case of Ohae Chin Ping, appellant, vs. the United States. The
appellant is a Chinese laborer who departed from tho United States for
China June 2, 1887, first having so-
cured a return certificate from the collector of San Francisco as required by
law. Ho returned to tho United States
in October, 1888, but permission to
land was refused on the ground that
the roturn certificate hod been declared
void by the Scott Chinese exclusion
act of Oct 1,1888. Chae Chan Ping
then sued out a writ of habeas corpus
in the United States circuit court,
which being refused an appeal was
taken to this court. It is contended
in his behalf that the Scott act declaring return certificates void is unconstitutional. It is sought to havo the
case advanced for hearing on the
ground that tho caso is one of great
importance, involving thousands of
certificates, many of the holders
of which have considerable property interests in the United States,
and that delay in the determination of
the case would result in great injury
to persons affected.

London, Jan. 0.—The board of trade
returns bIiow that British trade with
Canada for 1888, like the British

with 1887. The imports from Canada
nre £7,017,720, a decrease 11.65 per
cent. Tbe largest decrease in the exports occurs in cotton, woollen and
and worsted goods, probably due to
the enlarged Canadian home manufacture. Iron exports are about
stationary at £1,036,269; oattle decreased from £45,470 iu 1887 to £40,
364; Bheop increased from £45,738 to

A Victoria cotemporary, tlie Colonist, has an article in yesterday's
issue seconding The Columbian's
efforts to bring before the fishery
authorities the impracticability and
injustice of the new regulations with
respect to fishing in this province
passed by Order-in-Oouncil on the
26th of November last. The article
is principally a repetition of what
haa already appeared in this paper
on the subject, and so far wc have
no fault te find with our cotempor-
ary's arguments; but, in the excess
of its somewhat tardy real, tho Colonist slightly oversteps the mark
and goes beyond what, we are convinced, would.be in the best interests of the salmon fishing industry,
without proving a hardship to the
canners either. The Colonist says:
"A longer weekly cessation is not
necessary, as the thirty hours discontinuance has been quite sufficient
to permit of large numbers of salmon getting past tho portion of the
river in which thoy are in danger
of being caught in tho nets." Tho
Colonist's motive is good, doubtless,
but in making this statement it
draws on its imagination and ignoros
facts to a certain extent. Thirty
hours may scorn a considerable close
time, and so it would be if the fishing were confined to a certain point
on the rivor; but, whon it is remembered that tho fishing grounds
of tho Fruser extend over fifty miles
from its mouth (although the bulk
of the fishing is done within a limit
of thirty miles from tho sandheads),
it will be seen that the first salmon
to enter the river after the nets nre
taken up may not in many cases (us
theso fish do not ordinarily travel ut
express Bpeed up river on their way
to the spawning beds) succeed in
running the gauntlet of the entire
fifty, or even thirty, miles beforo
the expiration of the thirty hours.
Whilo we can heartily support tho
recommendations of the canneries in
all other points, and also with respect to increasing tho close time to
forty-eight hours (which wonld
operate very injuriously upon the
different fishing industries, as has
been shown in previous articles in
this paper,) wo are satisfied that,
by making the close timo thirty-six
hours—from Saturday 6 a. m, till
Sunday 6 p. m.—a substantial
protective advange will be gained
without causing hardship or loss to
either canners or fishermen.
It is reported that a revolution
has broken out in the kingdom of
Uganda, and that tlie king has been
deposed by his brothers. It is
thought that the new status of
affairs may permit Emin Pasha to
reach tbe coast. Uganada is a populous and powerful state, situated
around the northern and north*
western part of the Victoria Nyanza.
When Stanley visited it in 1876 he
found the reigning king, M'tesa,
well-disposed towards white strangers, and received either travellers,
traders or missionaries. Since then
M'tesa has died, and his son, M'-
wanga,a man of very different ideas,
has succeeded him. He dislikes
strangers, lias driven away, or held
as prisoners, the missionaries who
entered the country under the protection afforded by M'tesa's mildness, and as his territories stretch
across the line of communication
between the Upper Nile and Zanzibar, he has cut off his retreat' in
that direction. Northward the
Mahdi holds the country along tho
Nile, so that Emin has been shut in
except by the route taken by Stanley, via the Aruwimi, which is
through an unexplored country pre-
senting unknown difficulties to an
expedition. Should the reported
revolution in Uganda restore tho
status prevailing during the reign of
M'tesa, it would not only afford
Emin Pasha communication with
Zanzibar, by a well-known and coma
paratively easy route, but would
tend to open tho lake region of
Africa to trade. Uganda, with its
tributary states, hag a population
of 2,500,000. Its agricultural and
mineral resources are great. The
Victoria Nyunia is probably the
largest'body of fresh water on the
globe, having an area of about 40,-
000 square miles. Prom its southern extremity to Zanzibar it would
be easy to establish regular communication, and the whistle of a
steamer on the Nyanza would herald
the approach of commerce—the advance guard of civilization. The
existence of a powerful native state
on the lake, with which stable relations might be established; would
be muoh more favorable to trade and
progress than the occupation of the
oonntryby numerous petty tribes,
without coherence or head-ship, and
incapable of harmonious action
either in negotiation or commerce.
The people of this country have spoken. They declare by thoir patronage of
Pr. Thomas' Eoleetrlo Oil, that they be-
Hove it to be on article of genuine merit,
adapted tothe cure of rheumatism, as
wall as relieves the pains of fractures
and dislocations, external injuries, corns,
bunions, pile, and other maladies.
Childnn Cryfor Pitcher's Cutoria
Lord Salisbury made a speech
recently at Scarborough, England,
which threw considerable light on
the subject of England's persistent
holding of the little port of Suakim
on the Bed Sea against the repeated
attacks of Osman Digma and tho
fanatical dervishes of the Soudan,
without any apparent prospect of
carrying the war into the interior
and thus obtaining control of tho
whole region. Lord Salisbury declared, in the first place, that his
government had not tho slightest
intention of involving the country
in a new Soudan expedition, for it
realized fully that tho results which
might bo acliioved thereby, at great
cost of English blood and English
money, would be lamentably small.
At the same time, the government
was determined, for soveral good
reasons, not to abundon Suakim to
the Soudanese. Tho first reason
given by the premier was that it
was of tho utmost importance to England that sho
should fulfil her promises and maintain the continuity of her policy.
Mr. Gladstone's administration of
1882 had definitely promised tho
Khedivo that England would support him in holding the Bed Sea
ports as long as he desired, and the
present government felt bound to
fulfil that ptomise, not only for the
honor of England, but in order that
foroign nations might not bo allowed
to feel that tho foreign policy of
tho country was liable to bo changed
with every change of ministry.
These were the predominant reasons
why Lord Granville's promises
should be kept and his policy carried out. But, in addition, England, having swept the slave trade
from tho coast of West Africa, had
for some time past been making
groat sacrifices in ordor to achieve a
similar result on the east coast, and
with that end in view had been endeavoring to cut off the traffic between Africa nnd the markets of
Arabia and Persia. Now, Suakim
with its adjacent coast is ono of the
greatest existing outlets of this
traffic, and the go vermeil t has strong
hopes that, by retaining its hold of
the district in quostion, whilo at the
samo time co-operating with Germany further south, it will bo ablo
to kill the traffic in tho markets
that remain to it. It would, Lord
Salisbury said, bo the very acme of
feebleness to abandon the position
that had been already gained, and
England should rather redouble her
zeal in order that a finishing blow
might be given to the slavo trade.
For these reasons his government
was determined not to abandon
Suakim, and in this determination,
ho said, it had the support of the
governments of the Khedivo and
tho Sultan. Opiniou in England
appears to be greatly divided on the
subject, but much of the controversy in the press and in parliament has arison from the uncertainty
which existed as to tbe policy of
the government and the reasons for
its adoption. As is well known,
questions asked in tho houso of
commons previous to this speech
failed to elicit satisfactory replies,
and it seemed as if the government
itself had no fixed plan. Now that
this uncertainty has been removed
tho issue is clear and well defined
and satisfaction has replaced
suspicion and uneasiness in the public mind.

ELECTION CARD
To the Municipal Electors cf New Westminster City:
Ladies ANnGKNTLEiuitr*,—
At tho request of a number of friends I
hnvo consented to place my name ln
nomination for the position of alderman
at the coming election, fully realizing tbe
Importance and duties of tbe office. If
elected I will endeavor to tbo best of my
ability, to place our cily ln tho front rnnlt
of the cities of B. C. Tho following Important questions will bave my careful
attention:
1. Railway,—1 willuseevorylegitimate
means In my power to bring to a successful termination tho building and com-
filetlon of the Southern Railroad, and will
rent liberally any projected rnllway
which may wish to run Into onr city,
always carefully guarding tho best interests of the city. And Itls my opinion
If wo are true to oursc .ves and bury any
little differences that may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, wc can make New
Westminster the greatest railway center
and most Important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Wateh Supply.-I am In favor of the
city owning Its own wntef works, for thore
Is a very largo revenue to bo derived from
this source, if properly conducted, andjf
elected, I will at once takeu|> this question
and deal with It on business principles,
Water rato debenture!! whon Issued, bear
their own value and will not bo ono dollar's tax on the ratepayers.
3. Sewbraoe,—Tbls is one of tbe most
important questions that the new council
will bave to grapple with, and, as there Is
bound lo bo a largo emigration here this
year, It behooves us to oo alivo and get
our city well advanced so as to keep away
those dread diseases which we so mercifully escaped last year. And I bave no
doubt if you elect the right mon a scheme
can bo got up whereby tho city can bo
properly sewere tl, and tne revenue derived
Irom the snle of water bo made to pay the
Interest and sinking fund for both water
works and sewernge,
4. Streets —Something must be done
nt once to open up all streets In tho city
so as to glvo workingmen and mechanics
a chance to gel to their lots nnd buildings,
and, if elected, I will give this subject my
careful attention and hearty support.
8. City Hall.—If any proposition Is
brought forward for the erection of a suitable city hall, and if the finances of tho
city will allow it, I will give It my warmest support.
0. Street Lighting.—I will favor tbo
extending and Improving of our syHtem of
street llghtlng,for thero Is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. Park.—In ordor to make the coming
agricultural show a success we muat put a
portion of tho city park in a fit condition
with suitable buildings, etc. If elected I
will do my bcitto mako the grounds a
credit to the royal city, I am also In favor
of removing tho unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent and planting a few shade
trees to replace tho stumps. Nature has
done muoh for our city and it only wants
touching up a littlo to mako it perfect,
8. Pum.fr LinRARY.-There Is no doubt
a now building Is wanted to replace the
del ii pi dated one now occupying a valuable lot, and thoro is no doubt In my mind,
but tbat a suitable one oould be erected
with stores underneath and library above;
and tho rents from said stores would more
than pay for Interest and sinking fund,
and leave a balance for keeping the library ln proper condition.
0. MANUFACTUREHS.-I will encourage
any manufacturers tbat contemplate starting business ln this city, treating them
ina liberal manner, and will use every
effort to show them the advantage of doing
business here. It Is well known that manufactures are the backbone of any city.
10. Comu»iOATioN8.-I will urge upon
our representative the necessity of tbe
Dominion government subsidising aldaily
boat between here and Richmond and
also between here and Ladners Landing.
We must also get bettor connections with
tho Burroundlng district.
11. Letter BOXE9.-I will also endeavor
to havo the postal authorities supply and
put in placo letter boxes in tbo suburbs
of tbe oity.
12.1 will also urge on our eity member
tbe necessity of having the local government place a sum of money in this year's
estimates to put the North Arm road ln a
fit condition for travel.
18. Street Naming and Numbering.--
If elected I will urgo upon my colleagues the necessity ofhavlng our streets
properly named and buildings numbered,
as Is always done In well-regulated cities.
In fact, any project that mny be brought
up for advancing the Interests of tbe oity
will bave my careful attention and hearty
support
I remain,
Your Obedient Servant,

SLAVES IN  AFRICA.
AppHlllug Devastation In the Heart of the
Dark Continent.
Tlio destruction wrought in Central
Africa by. Arab, slave stealers within the
past fivo or six years ia appalling, says the
Now York Sun. In regions whero Livingstone, Stanley and Cameron saw targe
populations no human inhabitants .can now
bo round. Most of then, havo been captured or slaughtered, and romnantsof tribes
hnvo escaped Into other districts. These
regions aro included between 23 degrees
and 83 degrees east longitude and between
S degrees and 13 degrooB Bouth latitude and
embrace an area ot nearly 100,000 square
miles,
Among tbe -nost entertaining writings of
Livingstone aud Stanley are their descriptions of the beautiful land of the
Mnnycmo, wost of Lake Tanganyika, and
its unique inhabitants, and all theie, as
Olcei-upnow reports, have completely disappeared except the gangs ofManyema
slaves who work the Arab plantations along
tho caravan route. The path of*Arab devastation extends Btralght west from Lake
Tanganyika, past Nyangwo to the Upper
Bunkum five hundred miles, and for a
breadth of seventy-flvo miles hardly a native has been left to tell of the awful invasion. ,   4
It was In the western part of this district
that Lieutenant Wissmannin 188*3 visited a
Dono Ki town, whose single street extended
for ten miles, whose huts wore twenty SsK
high and surrounded by neat court-yards,
whose men tolled in the fields behind the
houses, while all the inhabitants bade the.
strnngor welcome, and about five thousand
oflhemvlsitodhiBoampthatevening. Two
years ago WiBsmann passed again through
tirnt place. There was nothing left of the
happy homesteads. In the tall grass that
choked tho long street were found many
charred poles and blackened skulls. The
hordes df Tippu Tib within six months had
ppid three murderous visits to thla targe set*
tlcmmt. Many women were carried off, all
who offered resistance wore killed, and the'
(Mils, gardens and banana groves were
I*id waste. Small-pox,introduced by the
j. niba, and famine completed the tragedy.
Tho powerful tribeof Bene Kl had ceased to
exist, nnd only a few individuals had
<-3cnped south to Zappu Zapp, a chief woe
wus himself a refugee from Arab aggression.
Along three hundred miles of the Congd1,
between Nyangwe and Stanley Palls, th«
Arabs, according to Oleerup and Len--, have
tl. 1-. -minted about fifteen thousand square
milea of territory. Tho numerous tribes
whom Stanley first saw havo become slaves
or m greatly depleted numbers wander
through the forests far from the river.
About two thousand square miles of the
rolling prairio west of Tippu Tib's home at
Kiisongo have been utterly drained of their
people. About twenty thousand square
miles on the Western headwaters of tho
Congo are no longer a profitable field for
slavo-hunting. In the very region where
Livingstone died and whero his heart was
burled, extending southeast from Lake
Banwcolo and embracing about fifteen
thousand square miles, the Arabs, we are
told by Giraud, havo oompletely ravaged
tho country. And from all those centers of
devastation tbe paths of the destroyers
leading to slave marts and shipping points
may bo traced by the bones of the victims
who full by tbe way.
It can not be possible that the civilised
world will much longer permit this colossal
, ci'imo of tho century to add its murderous
results without taking earnest measures to
put u stop to it. .
CARE OF THE  HAIR.
Some Sound Advice for Women Who Want
Fine Locks.
Hair must bo carefully cultivated to grow
even in length, supple, silken and graceful
.' ln color, says a writer in tho Pittsburgh
Dispatch. Every thing Ib encouraging for
tbe Improvement of the hair, if timo can be
givon it.   Thosomo trontmej't (WW-T^do
for different kinds of hair by any means.
Strong, stiff, naturally moist hair noeds a
woukly shampooing and dally and nightly
; brushing, with exposure to tbe morning
and evening sun, which is a great stimulant to tho hair. Thin, soft, dry hair nocdi
tender caro, but with either tho first step
toward Improvement is thorough washing
of the scalp aud hair, whioh collecU dirt its
' entire length.
To cleanse it the various
' ammonia, carbonate of potash" hnd washing
soda are used, and the strong hair will boar
them, but they burn the life out of thin, dry
, hair.  Most hair washes aro used entirely
J too strong. Soap bark is really better than
any thing I know, except tlio shampoo powder of "the fatal sisters," which Iobvob the
hair luxuriously silky, instead of flying
liko thistledown. Pour two quarts of boiling water on a tcaspoonTul of soap bark,
let it cool till pleasant, comb the hair smoothly fnm tho face, part it and scrub down
the parting with tbo shampoo brush like
an exaggerated tooth brush, wetting the
' skin well with tho decoction. It lathers
well, and the wholo head should bo gone
over, making twenty or moro partings, the
, hair rinsed in plenty of clear water, combed
and wiped smoothly, not rubbing it fo-
i roolously, and tangling it, whioh breaks
, it. The Venetian ladies drew their hair
EXPENSIVE   NEEDLES.
Reminiscences of the Dayi When Timor.
Were JJartl In the Conrutlerucy.
From an article entitled "Hard Times in
the Confederacy" in tho Centum wo quote
tho following: "In August, 1861, a private
citizen's coat and vest, made of five yards
of coarse homespun cloth, cost two hundmi
and thirty dollars exclusive of the prico
paid for tho making. The trimmings consisted of old cravats; and for tho cuttiti-**
and putting together, a country tailm-
charged fifty dollars. It Is safo to soy that
tho private citizen looked a veritablo guy
In his now suit, ln spite of its heavy drain
upon his pocket-book.
"In January, 1865, tho material for a
lady's dress which before the war wuuld
have cost ten dollars could not be bought

possible, an hour. Light ts a great
stimulant and projwrvativo to half, and It
, is well to open it wjben dry aud let the wind

treatment If you want a stimulant at

Vo not irritate the scalp by hard brushing.
Regular care is better than overdoing.
Thin, fragito hair is best cleansed with tho
yelk of a fresh ogg, rubbed In the roots
with tbo Angers, left on fifteen minutes and
washed off in warm, soft water. Tho ogg Is
nutritive as woll as cleansing to tbo hair,

KlLLED  BY TOBACCO.
A MoastMus Ika-rfc That Chewed a Quid
with DliMtroai Besalts*
In a short whilo we had caught a nloe
mess of small snappers, from ten to twenty
i inches long, and woro having a real good
time, writes nwrrespofldentof Qardtnmi
S'rwmt WeHad notfia-tt^vej-yhin^ho^
ever, befc* a largo shark pot' in1 art a-p-
Eearance and spoiled our sport. Wo first
now of his presence by his greedily snapping off the fish from one of my neighbors'
lines, bavfug followed it up from the bottom.
Bo executed this performance several times,
and then the snappers stopped biting on-
I Uroly. Not even n nibble could we get, so we
hauled in our lines and ooinmencod to pay
attention tothe shark. Bo wasa monstrous
follow, about Ifteen foet long, aud ho kept
swimming round nud round tho vessel,
sometimes on top the water and Bomctimo*
away down deep below us, but always at a
resiiebtful distance. His reddish brown
body could be plainly seen through tho clou i
tranaparout green water, and you may bo
sure he wai the cynosure of all eyes. A
great many plans for hts capturo woro dls-
cussed, but none appeared practicable within our limited moans, Tho engineor aug-
geated tbat if tbe shark would glvo him
time, be would forgo a proper hook and
chain, but aa the shark was unable to give
him a guarantee bo abandoned the project
While wi. wore thus talking I noticed the
native pilot ovory now and then throwing
overboard one of tho snappers we had so
recently caught. And as tho current carried it a little distance dear of the vessel
tho shark would gobble it down, and,,in
fact,, the intervals were so regular that Mr.
Shark seemed impatient when the regularity was broken by a littlo delay. Wo saw
tbat our pilot had aome ultimate object in
view, and it drow our attention to him, I
bud not particularly noticed the man before
this; moro than that he was a fine-looking,
dark-Bkinned man with good European
features, but ovidcutly of mixed blood. As
he was born and raised on the coast, and
had probably served hia pilot's apprentlco
ship as a fisherman, ho know how to
deal with his inveterate foe; tho shark.
Anyhow, we nil thought no and gave him
credit for it, and, although he did not say
much, ho went about it in a very earnest
m-niner. Aftor having thrown ovor ton
small fish ho selected another a littlo
larger than the others, and with a stick of
wood rammed a roll of chewing tobacco
nearly as large ae a man's hand down into
its belly and pressed its throat together
again, ito held it ready to throw, and as
tbo shark came up, anxiously looking for its
fish, ho tossed It to hlm, and as it barely
touched tho water the shark turned over
on its back and sucked it in. The shark then
swam off as usual to tho sido of tho vessel,
and then below ub, and was apparently
rising again in the expectation of another
fish when tho nicotine commenced its work.
His struggles and contortions were horrible to bohold as he darted hero and there
In a blind rage and vomiting blood, but as
ho swam, or was carried by the current
away from us, his struggles grew; gradually less, until it censed altogether, The

FIVE-LEAF CLOVER.    '
Gamblen Think  It  Means  Good  Luck,
Bnt Other People Do Not.
This curious advertisement appeared Ina
morning paper recently:'
p AMDLERH, .SPECULATORS AND DKT-
Vl ting mon—For salo—Talismnn. two live*
leaved (-lovers; prloe, I10O each. Addreu
CLOVER.
It discloses one of tho weaknesses of aomo
gamblers, who are notoriously addicted io
boodoos, talismans, lucky trinkets mul the
like. It is impossible to get theso supers! i-
tious players to Bit at a game of cards .without a lucky silver piece on the tublo, u
knifo blado turned toward the jack pot, u
handkerchief tied around their loft lc.r. it
bent toothpick alongside their pile of ohlpu
or somo of tho other multitudinous "lucky"
dovices for wooing the smiles of fortune
brought into play on the cards. It fs something decidedly new, however, for any one
to place so high a value as $100 on n lulls-
man, und a New York Sun reporter strove
to llnd out whether the alleged "-hoodoo"
was worth as muoh as that, and whether
thorn was any thing substantial about ita
alloyed lucky influence.
Tho advertisement waa shown to Al Smith,
who has sat at games at whleh all sorts of
talismans have been brought to bear on tho
game.
" I don't believe In bugs myself," said ho.
casually coining a new name for the supposed lucky gambling charms, "but I've
beard of five-loaf clovers being used, and i
suppose thero are somo queer peoplo who
nn.'iit think it worth moro thai -liWtoKot
hold of one. But an eyo on tho dealer niul
keeping your wits about you are bettor »u-
curity against 111 fortunes than any amount
of bugs."
Police Captain RelUy shook bis head when
asked about tho olover.
'•Never hoard of a five-leaf clover," ho
aid, "but I do know that four-loaf clovers
-re lucky. They're called shamrocks in
reland, and tho shamrock is always lucky.
3ut when it comes to gambling, 1 don't lie-
iove a live-leaf or a four-leaf or any otl.l-j*
kind of clover would influence a guine.
Every thing depends upon tho play there."
Tho reporter went out into tho country
Where olover is abundant, and asked about
tho talisman clover. These inquiries revealed that where the clover grows the live-
leaf varioty is looked upon as being as unlucky to the finder as an opal is regarded
among oity gamblers.
" Wo nevor pick five-leaf olover," a Key
East farmer said. " They're baa luck. But

how great a sum might have been hnd i i»e
bonnots'brought through tho linos'; for In
spite of patient self-sacrifice and unfaltering devotion at tho bedsides of the wounded
in tbe hospital, or In ministering to tho
needs of relativoi and dependents at homo,
tho Southern women of those days are
credit 'd with as keen an interest In the
fashions as women every whero In civilize'
lands aro apt to bo ln times of ponce. It
was natural that they should be bo Interested, Oven though that Interest could In the
mab not roach beyond theory. Without ii
thoy often would bave had a charm tho less
and a pang tho more. Any feminine garment in the shape of cloak or bonnet or
dross which chanced to come from tho Norlh
was readily awarded its meed of pralao,
and reproduced by sharp-eyed observers,
so far as the scarcity of materials would
admit        „
"But fashion's rules were necessarilv
much relaxed In the Southern Confuderucy
so far as practice wont when oven such
articles as ptns*brought through tbo blot-li*
ado sold for twelve dollars a paper, uud
noodles for ten, with not enough of either."

Of theie 162 whites were charged with

171 persons were summoned. One
Chinaman was arrested during the

OUR INDUSTRIES
Douglas A Dclghton's Saddle and Har-
ness Making Eslabllskment. tke
Most Widely known In B.C.
An Old fistablUked Firm wklek has tke
knack of Maintaining a Strong Lead
over Competitors.
Tke Brick-Making Industry. Tke Out*
pat for tke Year. Tke New Pottery
Establishment.
Messrs, Douglas & Deighlon, sad*
dlera and harness makers, are, without exception, tho most widely known
manufacturers ln their line of goods in
British Columbia. From the mouth
of the Fraser River to William's Crook
in Cariboo, and from thence to the international boundary in the Kootenay
country, Douglas & Doigbton s saddles
and harness will be found wherever
horses are used. For 22 yeara tho
firm has been supplying goods to the
ranchers and packers of British Columbia, and never have they been accused of furnishing anything but the
very best makes to their customers.
The firm first established business in
Yale in 1807, at which time that town
was tho second in importance on the
mainland of British Columbia. At that
time all pack trains for the Cariboo
country were made up at Yale, and all
trains from the mining regions completed their wearisome journeys at the
same place. By strict attention to
business nnd by giving honest value to
everyone, Douglas & Deighton soon
won for themselves a reputation for
good work and fair dealing which haa
stuck to them ever sinco. In 1884,
whon the glory of Yale had departed,
the establishment was removed to
Westminster and here it has continued
to flourish ever since. The firm now
employs se^en saddlers, who turn out
goods unequalled by other makers in
the province. Ladies saddles, English
Baddies, Mexican saddles, harnesses,
silver and gold mounted and plain,
double nnd single, are all made in the
Clarkson street workshop, Iu the Columbia street store a full line of these
goods are constantly in stook for supplying tho retail trado and jobbers, A
full lino of saddler's furnishings are
also kept in stock. The business of
the firm is constantly increasing, nnd
Mr. Douglas reports that the year just
closed lias .boon tho busiest in the history of the firm. The best proof of
the popularity of Messrs. Douglas &
Deighton is that year after year their
old customers return to purchase supplies.
BRICK-MAKING.
Manahan Bros', brick yard, in this
cily, made during the year 1,200,000
brick of superior quality. Twenty men
were omployed in the brick yards at
good wagea. This firm has latterly
addedapotteryeatabliahmenttoitsother
business and it has turned out some
excellent work in tho shape of earthenware jars nud basins, tureens and
flower pots. Operations at the pottery
have been suspended for a fow weeks
but Manahan Bros, hope to resume
work shortly and will push the new
industry to its fullest extent. A large
demand is expected for this pottery-
ware as many letters of enquiry regarding pricea, etc., have already been
received. ■■■■--
BECKETT & CO.,
of this city, whose yards are situated
at Port Haney, manufactured during
1888 tlio large number of 3,000,000
bricks. This is exactly 50 per cent,
over their make of 1887, und is probably the greatest - number made by
any ono firm in the provinco during
the yoar. Beckett & Co. kept 45
men constantly employed during the
season,
Elroy O'Brion's brick yards, at Port
Haney, turned out 700,000 bricks.
An Old In dm l nre.
Through the kindness of A. J. Hill,
C.E., wo recontly hod the pleasure of
inspecting an old Indian indenture,
bearing the date, "Ninth day of July,
One thousand aeven hundred and
eighty-nine." The instrument transfers
tho Indian lands of the Mohawka and
Canajoharos to the people of New
York for £700. A careful reading of
the American wars of the time allows
that these Indian people had left New
York State, having fought faithfully
for the British and having been defeated by tbe Americans, in 1779, who
destroyed their grain and fruit treea;
their leaden were Johnson, Butler and
Brandt, (Brant), and at the time the
indenture was drawn they were living
at Nassau, Province of Quebec, now
possibly known as Ontario. The territory sold formed a part of the "County of Tryon," (named after an Engliah
general), the name of whioh was
changed to "Montgomery" and waa
known by thia name in 1780.
Their territory lay south of the Mohawk tributary of the Hudson with
"Babington'i Patent" on the east and
"Arm's Creek" and "Cant Scott's
lands" on the weat. The Indiana formerly belonged to "Mohawk Castle at
Fort Hunter." The names Fort Hunter and Oanajoharea are atill found in
Montgomery County, N.Y.
The number of Indian signatures ia
thirty-nino, and opposite each ii a
small quantity of red sealing-wax. covered with a small piece of paper.
Nearly all the Indiana wrote their Indian names, but a few their Engliih
names. Undor tho former John Butler,
deputy aupt. of Indian affairs, who also
certifies to the sale, hu written the
Enalish name by which the penon waa
known and under tho latter the correct
spelling of each.
Opposito two signatures are rudely
sketched outlines of a tortoise and in
aome cases an Indian's mark is made
instead of hia signature, whioh he evidently could not write.
This Indenture waa aigned and aealed
in the preienco of Ralph Clenet,
Nicholas Forbeaa, Capt. Joa. Bnnt
and three othen. It ia well known
that Capt. Brant lived in the neighborhood of Brnntford, Ont., where a
monument was raised to him in 1886
and whoae life waa written in the same
year by an Indian named Ke-ohe-ah-
gah-me-quti.
At the bottom of the paper ia the
following:
"The abovo writelng was duly
Executed in Full Council in Witness whereof we have hereunto sett
the seal of our nation."
(Signed)       Capt. Jos. Brant,
in behalf of Canaioharei;
Capt. David Hill,
in behalf of Mohawka.
Opposite their namea is placed a
largo piece of aoaling* wax oa a seal, and
a ctoeo atudy of thia provea they muat
have had In use n largo elipse-ihaped
stamp (probably of their own manufacture) for to be Been aro tho profile
views of a tortoise, a wolf and a bear.
Mr. Hill secured thia ancient parchment from one of the oldeat familios in
Nova Scotia, who had possession of it
for many yean and whose ancestors
emigrated from New York State to
Nova Scotia taking this document with
them. It ia in two pieces, is somewhat
torn and the large seal ia very muoh
cracked. If permission bo given by
tho owners it will bo forwarded probably to the Museum at Ottawa.
