NOTES AKD COMMENTS.
Mr. Phelps, the American Minister, in a speech before the members
of the Glasgow bar recently said
that nothing in the administration
of justice in Groat Britain was more
excellent than the prompt and efficient manner in which the laws
were executed.
A lady who arrived in Tacoma
yesterday morning from the east
said the snow was from ten to
twelve feet deep in Dakota, and
the farmers were hauling hay and
grain on sleds. The weather was
not cold, as the thermometer stood
At about zero. Here we are luxuriating in the sunshine with the
mercury just a little abovo the freezing point in tbe day time.—Tacoma
Ledger.   Here too.
One of the London correspondents
of the Kew York papsrs says that
the full information the newspapers
have been publishing anent the
Whitechapel murders and police intentions have put the fiend on his
guard. The correspondent argues
that clues and other hints of this
sort may safely be cabled to America, beoause the murderer "does not
likely read the New York papers."
There appears to be some method in
the madness of the murderer after
all. 	
Henry Ward Beeohor's old Plymouth church, now under the pastoral ohargo of Ber. Lyman Abbott,
is growing in strength and numbers.
Though the society does not have so
many rich members as a few year*
ago, its character for intellectual
force is fully equal to that distinguishing it during Mr, Beeeher's
career. Dr. Abbott combines executive ability with the thoughtful
intellectuality,of the scholar, and is
thus satisfying both demands. Not
only as a worker is he building up
the church, but as a preacher he is
attracting large congregations.
Here's the way they talk to each
other south of the line: Tacoma
papers seems to be fond of speaking
of that city as "The Oity of Destiny."
Pray, toll us, destined to what t
Sodom and Gomorrah were oities of
destiny.—Port Townsend Argus.
Destined to have the Methodist
university. Destined to have a
custom house, Destined to be in
the right place at theright time, and
to do the right thing. In view of
tlie crookedness of Fort Townsend
officials the Sodom and Gomorrah
act would seem to be more appropriate in Oounciltnan Weir's great
city.—Tacoma Ledger.
The report that the Madhi's sue-
cess'or has put the Sultan of Wadai
to flight after killing 3,000 of the
Sultan's soldiers, says the New York
San, shows that Khalifa Abdullah
is still the predominant power in tho
Soudan in spite of the efforts of
distant chiefs to throw off his yoke.
These rebellions in the west have
kept tho Khartoum despot rather
busy, but having killed the Sultan
of Darfur and all his relatives and
driven the Sultan of Wadai into
exile he seems to have established
his authority over nearly all the
former possessions of Egypt in the
Soudan exoept in the province whore,
at last accounts, Emin Pasha still
maintained eight or ten stations on
the upper Nile.
An exchange says: Scotland is
proud of tho career of its eminent
divine, the late Dr. Norman Mac-
leod, who enjoyed the somewhat
rare distinction of being a personal
friend of his Sovereign, whose confidence and friendship he enjoyed
for many yeurs. At his death the
Queen expressed her grief in a letter
to Mrs. Maoleod, which showed how
highly esteemed the distinguished
clergyman was. After the lapso of
many years the Queen has given
another token of her regard for his
memory. By hor order a handsome
bust of Dr. Maoleod has beon executed by a noted sculptor especially
for her Majesty, a companion work
to ono of Principal Tullooli, another
Scottish chaplain to tho Queon.
When Greek meets Greek, says
an exchange, tho popular belief is
that a stiff struggle ensuos, but in
England just now when Greek meets
a modern language the ancient
tongue goes to the wall at onco. In
future a knowledge of Greek will
not be required from students entering the classical side of that great
public school, Harrow, founded in
1S71 anil granted a charter by Queen
Elizabeth. The change will startle
old Harrovians, but it is said to be
duo to the headmaster of the school.
Hey. Mr. Wcldon, who considers
that the new system will work well,
and that boys who only want to
know Greek "to stumble through a
passage in tho Iliad, with the help
of a lexicon and a crib, had better
leave it alono altogether," while boyi
who intend to proceed to the university will be obliged to take Greek,
Any time saved by non-Greek pupils
will bn devoted to modern languages
--a provision indicative of the edu
cutionnl tendency of the time.
Orptui M. Hodge, Battle Creek, Midi,,
writes: I upset a tca-kottle of boiling hot
water on iny hand. I atonce applied Br.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil, and tho effect was
to Immediately allay tlie pain. I was
curod in three dnys.

K. OF L. WANT POWDERLY.
Indianapolis, Nov. 19.—Tho desire of
the delegates to the general assembly of
tho Knights of Labor to continue Powder!** as their chief has been expressed
to him formally. The seven delegates
who represent the Canadian assembly,
called on him and asked him to accept
the offer once more. He gave them to
understand that he would do so providing he could choose bis own advisers on
the general executive board. Everything indicates that he will be given his
wish. There is now only a difference of
opinion regarding the way that It shall
be done Ono plan is for him to choose
eight names, four of which will bo selected by the assembly. Another plan
contemplates the nomination of four
men, if any bo rejected, new names shall
be presented, until tho number is com-
Slete. Under any circumstances Pow*
erly wilt undoubtedly continue in office
and wUl choose his own cabinet. Canada wants to be represented on tho general executive board, the south has a
like desire and a movement is on foot
looking to the selection of somo reprc
scntativo business man. It ts reported
that a proposition looking tothe formation of an entirely new rtonstitntlon in
being considered by the proper committee, as thero is a strong feeling in favor

said that he will keep up his denunciations in the form of long articles for several days to come,

THK RAILWAY CA8E.
Ottawa, Nov. 22.-The Manitoba
railway case was continued in the iu-
preme court today. After Mr. Chri.-
tophor Robimon, Q. O,, had concluded
hi. argument for the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company, he wu followed by
tho Hon. Oliver Mo»»t, the premier
of Ontario, on behalf of the Manitoba
government. Mr. Mowat contended
that the British North America aot in
railway matters give* the greatort
power to the provinces. The latter
etij'iy a general jurisdiction, the Dominion n special jurisdiction. The
meaning fihceol npon the federal declaration that certain road, alone are
for the genenl advantage of Canada is
contrary to every principle of interpretation. The fodorai parliament, if
its assumption of the power named in
tho railway act is legal, oould with
equal justice by a (weeping utuaur*
transfer all local work, from the juris-
diction oi the provinces to the Dominion. The exceptional jurudiction
of tho Dominion i. eipeoially Applied
to tho regulation of railway, tnranuu*
more than one province. Thi* power
is granted to nlieve the province*
from various question, and ditput**
which might arise from time to time.
Mr. Mmant alio contended that th.

Friday Evcalna. Hov. 83, 18*8.
Thero nre two matters—very important matters both of them—
which appear to have been allowed
to lapso somewhat by our citizens
lately. Wo refer to tho duty of
preparing, well beforehand, a good
ticket for tho city election to tako
place in about six weeks, and also
to the B. 0. P. Exposition Fund,
whioh has received no accessions
since Sheriff Armstrong broke tho
record nearly two weeks ago. 1 t-as
the sheriffs three Xs soared anybody 1 Where aro our capitalists?
Surely the exposition will bo n good
(Jiing for Westminstor; but more
lucre will be needed to do it up
grand. According to tlio terms of
the subscription fund, the money
need not bo paid until six months
from tho date of the Inst provincial
exhibition; but intending contributors should hurry in their names,
so that committees, ifec, may know
as early as possible on what scale
to prepare for the coming exposition.
We trust that our citizens will look
alive and act lively in both of the
important matters wo havo mentioned. ^^^^^^^^^
It would really seem as if Canadians were going to havo a hand in
electing the next president of the
United States—as if, without our
leave, and even against our will, we
were to be hurried out of our staid,
sober, and yet very satisfactory pace
into the terrible maelstrom of electoral colleges, pluralities, precincts,
and roorbacks. Senator Sherman,
Blakely Hall, Erastus Wiman, and
many lesser lights, are all working,
with pen and voico, tooth and nail,
for this object, in different ways,
perhaps, but to the self-same end.
" What shall wo do with our surplus 1" lias been a question with our
Yankee neighbors lately, second only
in importance to the spirited diversion of twisting tho lion's tail, and
scarcely exceeded in general interest
by tho query which has been raising
such a ripple on the surface of English society—"Is marriage a failure 1" According to our despatches
yesterday, presidentelect Harrison
has settled tlmt question. "Buy
Canada!" he exclaims, triumphantly.
And we fancy we can see the beaming but hungry-looking Uncle Samuel slapping the new president,
paternal or pedagogue-wise, on the
epaulet, and exclaiming: "Right
you are, Benjamin Harrison; go up
head, and wear your grandfather's
hat for the whole term, as a merit
mark," General Harrison is credited
by an intimate friend with saying
that the surplus in the treasury
could net be spent in a wiser manner than in buying Canada; there is
another consideration, whioh, if not
ef equal weight, is of greater urgency. The new president is said
to have nn eye to his standing in
the American text-book of the future. His prophetic vision conjures up a scene something like this:
1989; United States, embracing
North America, Greenland, and all
the fish in the sea within the three
hundred mile limit from shore; 1st
olass in history, in the one million
and one institutions for teaching the
young American idea how to shoot.
1,000,001 domires and school-dames
—"When was the Dominion of
Canada admitted into the union!"
1,000,000,000 young American
voices, rending the affrighted air
like a Fourth-of-July or a presidential eleotion "hoorah"—"In tho
year 1891, the third year of the
reign of- President Harrison II."
So say the despatches: "General
Hairison, liko all presidents, will
desire to do something that will give
his administration prominence in tho
history of his country." And Canada muat be sacrificed accordingly.
It is gratifying, though, to learn
that we aro not going to bo cudgeled
Into Uncle Sam's pastures—not if
we behave ourselves quietly and tako
the candy he offers us, at any rate.
Overlooking, for the time being, the
issue of this annexation business,
whioh a Seattle paper, the Daily
Press, reassuringly stated the other
day, is "only a question of time,"
wo might inquire: How ought
Canada to take the matter, which is
likely to assume the status of a live
restion shortly! Should she feel
ttered, or tho reverse, by the
rather obtrusive and persistent attention* of neighbor Jonathan, Docs
the United States want to take us
In because it pities onr forlorn and
bankrupt condition, or because it
envies our prosperity and fears our
wpialy-anproaohing future great-
nout These are questions that are
wort"! the while of every Oanadian
to itudy out and answer for himself.
The Seattle Frets discuses the question in thb way:
Th. annexation .entimeat ha. received
a gnat impetus In Canada, owing to tlio
treatment the province of Manitoba hns
recently been .ubjooted to by th. Canadian lawlflo Hallway. Mere especially
hu this sentiment ucrtawd in that pro.
vine*. The decision of the court grant
ing the Injunction uked by the railroad
to prevent th* Bed River road from
crowing It* tracks, which virtually makes
It unlawful for any road to cross the
form.r between Montreil and the Rocky
Mountains, aroused widespread indlgna-
MSB, for withont tbo right to crow, tho
Red River road could not bo completed.
Despairing of obtaining nny relief from
the oppression of tho great monopoly,
the people ore openly suggesting annexation to tho United States as their only
avenue of csenpo. All their trade and
their interests lie in this direction, and
they naturally turn to us, liko their
Nova Scotin brethren at the oxtreme enst
of the lino, whose business iutcreats all
lie in New England, ns tho only avay out
of their dilommn. * * * Tho Canadians aro realizing slowly but surely that
annexation is the only practical solution
of the difficulties now surrounding them,
and that thore must bo an oxact reciprocity of good feeling and hospitality bo-
foro all sources of trouble can bo removed. Unrestricted trade botwoen the
two countries will go far to secure this
result, and if, aa ia likely, commercial
union should lend to political union,
the Canadians would be hotter off in a
double sense, both as to thoir pockets
and their politics.
The Seattlo Press must have private
sources of information—or,moro liko-
ly.it is the old story of tho wish being
father to tho thought—for Manitoba has no notion whatever of flying from the ills she has to others
that she knows not of. The prairio
provinco is thoroughly loyal, in Bpito
of its trouble with the O.P.R., and,
so far from "despairing of obtaining
any relief from tho oppression of the
gront monopoly," and Hinging themselves recklessly away upon Uncle
Sam, the people of Manitoba have
every faith in obtaining exact British justice—a quality that does not
flourish on American soil—and are
proving their faith by their works,
by recourse to tho highest court in
the land—tho supremo court of Canada. If, for any reason, the Mani-
tobans should be dissatisfied with
the finding of the supremo federal
court, a filial appeal remains to tho
British privy council, a tribunal
where "justice is weighed to the
lino and truth with a plummet."
Should the law not admit of an interpretation favorable to the province of Manitoba, the law itself
will be speedily amended, as the
question at issue is one that affects
not only Manitoba, but every province in the Dominion. Our American friends can rest assured that
all theso reasonable and loyal means
of redress will bo exhausted before
the dernier ressort of annexation is
mooted, and wo challenge our cotemporary of the Press to produce any
publio expression, worthy of note, in
favor of annexation, for the last
twelve months in Manitoba. With
the exception, perhaps, of a few
cooked American despatches, wo nre
sure our cotemporary has nothing.
With respect to tho reckless and
sweeping statement that "all their
trade and thoir interests lie in this
direction," it is perfectly obvious
that our cotemporary lies in the same
direction himself. In regard to the
ridiculous statements which follow,
about Canada generally having
reached the conclusion that annexation is the only wuy out of her
troubles, we can assure the iVasj,
and our neighbors to the south
generally, that the manner in which
the "great republic" "gave itself
away" and exposed its weak points,
during tha political campaign just
ended, has effectually dispelled any
hankerings after annexation which
may have lurked in the Oanadian
mind. No, thanks, Brother Jonathan; we aro doing nicely, thank
you again very much, but we prefer
to hoc our own row.

k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, 1 feel as if I wore a new

mnny remedies, but of no avail, until I
used this celebrated Dyspeptic Cure."
For all impurities of the Blood, Slok
Headache, Liver and Kidney Complaints,
Costivencss, etc., it is the best medicine

(      PHY8IOIAN BY AN OFFICIAL. '
A New York Coronet'. mysterious Dolus.
I      ~Ino.ue.ta Not |a. IKumeroua a. They
Ought To Be—Tho Caao ol ir. B,
Vanilorbllt,
{Omrllht use,)
The salary of $6,000 received by a New
j York coroner wonld never tempt some of
j tho men who have held, or do hold, that
; position. Then are many ways In which
the Coroner can add to hi* Income hy a
little finessing; and, If the word of most
of their brother politicians Is to be
accepted, they are not alow In taking
advantage of them. An Illustration or
two may be found both suggestive and
convincing.
Late one night aeveral years ago, a
prominent physician was called to the
Anthony House, now the Broadway Hotel, at 894 Broadway. The hotel did not
then possess a very savory reputation and
was frequented by many people of questionable character. The physician found
I a man lying unconscious on a cot In a
baroly furnished room on the third
floor. The early morning light that was
struggling to dispel the gloom displayed
* horrible Bight. The man was partly
dressed and in the dim light the dootor
conld see that he had been no stranger to
dissipation. Bis teatura wen contracted
ami a frown rested npon hi* brow. The
skull waa fractured and then were mark,
of blows upon hi* head *nd face. The
knuckles of both hands wen raw and
bloody, the skin having been rubbed or
i beaten off. It was evident that a crime
had been committed.
' The man was already In his death
throes and beyond the power of saying
iwho had been his assailant, In answer
to his Inquiries tho doctor was told that
tho man's name was John McDado. He
{bad registered at the hotel two days
before. He had been seen that night in
the saloon on tho southeast corner of
: Broadway nnd Thirteenth street-a notorious place. An hour or two later hlsbody
was found hy a fireman In tho stable
adjoining the engine house at Thirteenth
street, near Fourth ovenne. Thodlstanco
jfrom the hotel or the saloon to the stable
twos very short and the body could easily
have been carried there.
' Tho doctor made a close examination of
the body nud bocamo convinced that the
nan had been murdend. The Injuries
he bad received were undoubtedly caused
by blows, and could not havo resulted
from a fall. The hotel peoplo Insisted
Phot ho must have fallen down stairs
while drunk and then have wandered
into tho stnblo. The dootor saw that this
(would have been a physical Impossibility,
ale inquired among the guests and servants and soon learned enough of tbe
puth to enable him to explain the crime
nnd to know how it had been committed,
finis was what ho learned!
{ While ln the saloon on the corner
McDado met a woman with whom he
ilrank several times. She accompanied
ilm to the hotel. While then she was
■ecoRiiizeii by a former paramour, who
et upon McDade. Tho lattor fought savagely, but the other man was joined hy
Jrlcmls, who overpowered McDade. Thsy
Ifted hiin bodily and endeavored to
ihrow hlm over the balustrade. Ho
flight hold of it and clung; to It for dear
Ifc. Then they pounded him oo the face
nd head and beat and bruised his kiiuck-
until he was forced to let go. Ho
iropped down one flight Into the hall
lelow. His assassin, went dowu nud
xamlned his body. Satisfied that howas
one for and would never bo able to give
u account of his Injuries, they carried
bo body over to tho stahlo and deposited
b there.
The doctor wrote a letter to tho Coro-
er'sofllco stating what he had learned
nd requesting that ho be summoned as a
rltness for the people at the Inquest,
evcral days later ho was notified to
ppear. He did so. Upon being called
o tho witness stand ho started to testify
a to how he hnd found the body and
rhat had been tho result of his Investiga-
ions.
"Hon, slrl" lnterrnpted tho Coroner,
when I want your opinions I will ask
on for them,  You answer the questions
put to you, When was tho deceased
i -hen you found hlm!"
4 "He was lying on a oot In * back nam
*n tho third floor of the Anthony House,
■ut ho had been—"
S "Silence, sir," thundered the Conner
sain; "you confine your testimony to
'hat will answer my questions. He had
R tract un at tho base of hi* skull, didn't
■**' "Yes; and bruises on hi* head and face.
I 'he skin on his knuckles-—"
i Again the Coroner interfered. He had,
' jr reasons best known to himself,
; etermlned to hush the matter np and he
1 uietly choked off tho doctor's testimony,
'ho dootor was told to step down and was
uietly hustled out of thcroom. Nothing
'as ever heard of tho matter again.
I When William H. Vanderbllt died
Bioroner Messemer made tho examination
tnd gave the official permit. His action
Jiadohtm extremely unpopular with his
1 mfrercs, because ho had not at tho time
1 sen on duty and had taken npon himself
J io task that, by agreement among the
c mr Coroners, belonged to Coroner Ecu-
■Ad". The feeling against him wns
-jiteusely hitter, aud but for tho prominence of the dead man's family It would
' ;ry probably havo resulted In a wrangle
'Jr tho possession of the body. It was
[■.on common talk among tho politicians
""■'id newspaper men, who knew that tho
p-.roner who waa then flnt had been
Vill paid for not making himself too
"Tlclous.
"'"Mr. Vanderbllt died suddenly while
Jauvorsing with President Garntt, of the
P":iltlmore aud Ohio Railroad. That mado
necessary to call In th. Coroner so as to
•tain a burial permit. Had the Coroner
slated npou holding an Inquest then It
ould have been almoat fmponlbl. to
^•evontlt,
J It cau easily be seen that Wealthy pec
lie would pay well under auch circum*
lances to escape the grievous officious*
Los of the law. Would aVanderbUtpsy

Facing the Monster without Fear—Observation, of a Writer Who Ho. Seen
Many Feraons Faa. Away.
It is singular how small Is the proportion of persons who have witnessed tho
closing sceno of the human tragedy,
Even physicians do not seo their patients
expiro so frequently ns would ho thought.
But what they seo Is sufficient to strip
death of Its consternations.
Their prosenco at tho unmasking of the
fancied monster prepares them for the tu-
evltable. When their time comes they go
at least resigned through the silent portal. They an no braver than others, but
tbey have learned not to be scared at
spectres.
Very few men. In truth, are afraid to
dlo when the point comes. Tbey do not,
as may be supposed, relish tt, and they
nro anxious as a rule, to live, so long as
their chances an good ond they do not
suffer. When suffering grows ncitto
Miolr desire- dwarfs (few of us but prefer
death to pain), and when they lose hope
they yield themselves without a murmur,
I have seen, I repeat, an extraordinary
number of persons die, aud my observations and experience contradict the theories and opinions on the subject. At
first I was surprised at the evidence of
my own senses; afterward I was convinced that they revealed tho actual
truth.
I romember, though but a small boy at
the time, the first man who passed nwny
botore my eyes. Ho was patient, tranquil, philosophic, while conscious of his
doom. X hnd expected him to' be terrified, to perish ln agony, and the circumstances mado aa Indelible impression on
my budding mind.
I have seen the last-moments of delicate, highly nervous women who would
shriek at tho sight of a spider and who
could not bear tho mention of death.
Any one who had .known them would
have thought that their closing scenes
must have heen distressing.
They longed to llvo in the beginning,
but as they ebbed away and were conscious of the fact, pence and renunciation
came to them. So herb ot a hundred
fights conld have borne lingering Illness
and Its end mon serenely..
Woinon, weak and timid as they seem,
horrified as they often an, at the grim
monarch while remote, are calm and Intrepid when he stands at their side. As
ho advances to see them they do not
blanch or sigh or complain.
I havo wondered how persons who hnd
appeared to ho afraid of everything would
meet their fato, and yot they have met it
with equal mind and becoming fortitude.

OATMEAL OR NOT OATMEAL?
An Attempt To Settle aa Important
-Domestic Question,
Ton can got all the opinion you want
on both sides of a queition nowadays.
Oatmeal had not long heen reputed to
be a healthful food when some* physician
alone to deny It and to assert that It produced dyspepsia.
Allowance Is always to be made lo sueh
a question for tbo variation ot llunum
stomachs nnd constitutions, so thnt what
may he pood food for one person may not
bo for another,
Tlio truth nbont oatmeal for the generality or persons (and they are the only
persous you can apeak for) Is that If It la
eaten lu only a partially cooked condition
It Is uot healthful; and neither In Hour,
corn meal and many other articles oi
food.
Indigestion, and acidity of stomach aro
caused for some peoplo by tbe eating of
sugar or other sweets on oatmeal, and
tbey get tbo same effect If tliey eat theso
sweets ou rice or bread, Cream, too, mny
bo too much fat for a sensitive stomaeh.lt
put on oatnieiil. In these cases It Is not
the oatmeal, but either lta Insuflick-ut
preparation or tbe addition of ou Improper
food, that causes tbe stomach trouble.
If a person will eat a moderate amount
of oatmeal cooked and prepared as his
needs may demand, there can be no question tbat It Is healthful, digestible and
highly nutritious.
CARRYING THEOANEORUMBRELLA.
A Chapter of Instruction for the Youthful
and Aspiring Dade*
Tha accompanying will, I am confident,
be of Interest to my readers of the Undo
persuasion. It Is a serious matter this
carrying the cane or umbrella wisely and
well.
It will be noted that the popular Impression tbat a cane should be curled gifasped
with both hands und lu a "present arms"
position la erroneous.
It will also bo seen that tho elevation
of tbo stick with ono hand so that the bead
cornea lu exact line with the mouth, thus
presenting an easy solution of what Is
popularly known ns "nursing the cono
' Bad'* ie equally wrong.
This from a man who Is "over there"
where ho can see that of whtch he writes
gives emphasis to his statement:
"Always carry an umbrella or A cane
with a large head. Bnt the manner of
carrying these, that Is the most Important
item of my article on 'form.'
"I have observed this very carefully, and
all styles are proscribed but this J bue.
Turn the head of your umbrella or cane
to tbe rear as you bring It up to your sido
at right angles with your body, and seize
hold of It about a foot from the ond.
Never take hold of tt in tbe middle or
allow the head to appear lu front. You
would be voted a hltellng at once.

On Sunday night last a negro employed on the ship America, at Na*
naimo, caused quite an excitement by
attacking the captain and several of the
crew with a large knife. The captain
and second officer tried to capture tho
unfortunate negro, but he evaded their
efforts for some time. After several
attempts to strike, tho negro, being
close pressed, jumped overboard. The
mate und some others procured a boat
und followed. They finally captured
their man, and were hauling him into
the boat, when bo again tried to use
the knife. His hand was seized, however, and lindinp further resistance
useless, ho dropped the knife overboard, and allowed himself to be conveyed to prison. One of the seamen
was severely wounded in the scrimmage, and the captain had a narrow
escape, hia coat-sleeve being ripped
oped by the negro in one of his lunges
with tho knife.

A man named Jacobs, of Portland,
Oregon, is said to have absconded last
week and to be in thla city. The
Seattle Post-Intelligencer says: "Last
Saturday afternoon Marshal Finn received a telegram from the chief of
polico of Portland to intercept nnd
bold Mrs. Jacobs, a passenger for Victoria on tho Olympian. The marshal
obeyed instructions and lodged the
woman, together with her daughter,
in the county jail. It seems that Mrs.
Jacobsandher husband werein business
in Portland and failed a short time ago,
the firm of Wolf & Co. being a
creditor. Her husband, it ia alleged,
had already fled to Victoria, and his
loving spouse was otl her way to join
him,'with a neat Bum of money which
belonged to their creditors. The
chief of Police of Portland will arrive
here in the morning with the necessary papers to escort Mrs. Jacobs back
to Portland.—Times,

Messrs W. F. Anderson and John

claim on Snowsboe Creek, Cariboo,
are in the city, and tho former will

the winter. Messrs, Anderson and
Smith bought out Live Yank's olaim
upon that old miner's death in 1881.
lie had worked it for nearly twenty
years, barely making a living by drifting on bed-rook. The purchasers put
in hydraulic maohineiy and in 1886
had opened up the claim to pay dirt.
Tho pay is scattered through tho
ground for a depth of about forty feet,
and to reach this several hundred feet
of the surface had to bo washed off,
Tho claim is now well opened up, and
tho cloan-up for the year 1888 amounted to 308S ounces, or nearly $0,000.
Both the owners are Canadians, Mr.
Anderson being from Gait and Mr,
Smith from Renfrew, Ont. Their

The str. Richmond so well-known
on tho Fraser River,was burned to the
waters edgo at Vancouver yesterday.
Tho Richmond was carrying a load of
farm produce from the North Arm to
Fewster's wharf on False Creek and
had just passed under tho railway
bridge when smoko was discovered to
be issuing from the cargo of hay. Bo-
fore any steps could be taken to quench
the firo the flames burst out and spread
so rapidly that Capt. Young and the
crew hnd just time to lower the boat
and pull dear. Benson, of tlio crow,
saved his valise with (200 in it, but
the rest of the men escaped with only
the clothes they woro at tho time tho
firo broke out. Neither vossol or cargo were insured and therefore tho
whole is % total loss. Tho fire is supposed to havo boon caused by n ..spark
from the fire box reaching tlio hay.
The Richmond was built nt New
Westminstor nud launched about a
year ago from McFeo BroB.' shipyard.
She wns considered a good seaworthy
craft and her loss will be severely felt
by Messrs. Stewart & Rowan, her
owners.

Tho rogular quarterly meeting of tho
Westminster Board of Trade was held
last evening in tho board room. There
was a fair attendance of members.
Two new members were elected. Mr.
D. S. Curtis reported the result of tho
city's interview with tho city council
in connection with tho maintenance of
regular steam communication with the
North Arm, and the report waa considered satisfactory. A committee,
consisting of Messrs. W. Wolfendeu,
W. B. Townsend ond D. S. Curtis was
appointed to act in conjunction with
the city council in promoting this
scheme, and a resolution was passed
requesting the district representative
to ask the federal government for a
mail subBidy for this route. A resolution was also passed that a memorial
be prepared asking the provincial government to have the road leading from
this city to the North Arm repaired so
as to be available for teams. Mr.
Thos. Mowat, inspector of fisheries,
who was present by invitation, addressed the board with reference to the new
vessel to be constructed by the federal
government for the exploration of the
coast fishing grounds. Mr. D. Chiaholm, M.P., also addressed the board
on various questions affecting the interests of the district, and made some
suggestions for tho consideration of

for the quarter showed receipts, $367;
disbursements, 8415,10. The meeting
adjourned at 0:50,

I'o'lce Court*
The police court proceedings this
morning were somewhat moro animated
than usual, the renson for this being
tho presence of Mias Annie McKinney
a native of the "ould dart," who was
up on the charge of being drunk and
disorderly on the streets. Miss McKinuey conducted her own case, and
more successfully in all probability
than if she had been defended by the
most eminent legal talent. After tho
evidence for tho prosecution had boon
tajjen Miss McKinney opened her case,
nnd so powerful and logical was her
appeal that had tlio case been tried before "twelve good men and truo" they
would havo given u verdict of "not
guilty" without leaving the box. She
said Westminster was n strange place
and the people were altogether to particular. Previous to her arrival here
she had never been the worse for liquor, and she attributed all her troubles to the villianous decoction called
whiskey sold generally throughout the
city. It was not to be compared with
the native usquebaugh of "ould Ireland," of which a person might drink a
barrel and feel none the worse. Miss
McKinney concluded by telling his
honor that if he would overlook this
offence she would take the pledge and
leave the city at 1 o'clock. His Honor
with tears in his eyes, dismissed tho
case nnd Annie departed smiling and
happy aftor telling Mr. Atkinson he
was "just as good as he looked." Joe,
a Chinaman, charged with being concerned in tho robbery of Drysdale's
storo, was remanded till Monday.
. The Bell Tower.
The sale of work at Herring's Opera
House was continued last night and
the attendance was much larger than
in the afternoon, Owing to the large
space occupied by the tents, standing
room was at a premium, but in. spite
of the crowd and confusion the best of
good nature prevailed and everyone
appeared to thoroughly enjoy thorn*
selves. Tho presence of a dozen young
men dressed in all sorts of costumes,
from that of the Bulgarian bandit to
tho Mexican greaser, added considerably lo the brilliance and confusion of
the scene Shortly aftor 8 o'clock
the Venerable Archdeacon Woods an-
nonnccd the programme for the evening, commencing with "Fairy Voices"
by the children. When the curtain
lifted a pretty sight was presented to
view. The stage was decorated on
every side with evergreens and in the
centre was a largo green covered chair
or throne, on whioh sceptre in hand,
stood little Mab Falding, queen of the
fairies. Music, soft and low, was
now heard and presently the sound of
fairy voices came from the distance
and gradually grew louder until a
troop of 20 beautiful littlo fairies,
wings and ull, tripped gleefully on to
tbe stage. Round they went two by
two circling the throne and singing a
charming little sons, which fairly
carried the audience by ttorm. An
encore was loudly demanded and like
good little fairies they responded to
the call. The next feature on the
programme was the "Gillie Cal him,"
or Sword Dance, by little Miss Muudie
Charleson. This dance which is at
once the most difficult and moat grace*
ful of step dances, was perfectly performed by Miss Maudio, and many
persons preient, who from experience
are well able to judge, say they neyer
saw the "Gillie Galium" more gracefully stepped. The audience insisted
on aa encore and Miis Maudio gave
the "Highland Fling," also a delightful performance.
The fortune tolling booth, ably pro-
tided over by Miss Higginson, was
one of the chief attractions of the
evening, and many an anxious young
gentleman and lady took tho opportunity of glancing into tho misty and
uncertain future.
Tho sale of work was continued today and so well did the ladies do their
duty that almost every article has
been disposed of. To-night an entertainment by tho Gipsies will be given,
and a pleasant couple of hours are
promised to all who attond,
