TUB "EXAMINER'S" OI'JNION.
San FKANCiKco,Oct, 21.—The Examiner says, editorially, this morning:
'-The collapse of the Oanadian Pacific
sehome for a lino of quick steamers cm
tho Atlantic, makes a large hole in the
plan of building up a round the world
system of communication under the
British flag. It seriously impairs tho
force of arguments urged by the company's agenta upon the colonial governments iu behalf of tho transfer of
thoir BUppoit from San Francisco to
tlio Vaucover service. Tho attempt to
build up Vancouver or Victoria as a
rival to this city, is so purely obviously artificial that it is hardly likely to
ho persisted in, if our government
onco shows that it is determined to
b.ick American enterpuse."
A LARGE TABERNACLE.

ANOTHER EXPOSITION,

proposition of holding a Pacib'ic coast
exposition iu Sacramento in 1802 was

manifested, and it was decided to form

THE CHURCHES.
lananiarlcs of 80111c of the Cily sermons
Spoken Sunday,
THE BAPTIST CHURCH.
In tho morning the Rev. Thoi. Baldwin spoke from Romans 5c, 8 to 10
verses. He said: Thore :s no subject
bo hard to measure ot b realize, an the
personal and infinite God and His display of infinite love to us. Although
Ho hns so illumined our prosent condition with the invigorating beauties of
naturo and His evor bountU'rl providences, and wc aro constantly fooling
tho good coming out of them, we still
lose a great deal if we do not soo that
away behind all those thero wns tho
deahn of an ever provident God for
good. It, to Him, was not enough
that He should bo tho Creator, the
Dosigner, but He looked upon us at
cort.tin point: in our condition and
mado special provision for our need,*,
as He saw wo wero circumstanced, aB
ainncrs, for iin-t..nco, He saw the
damage and the havoc sin had mado,
shutting us off from tho gre.it future,
and He provides Jesus and in that provision He commends His lovo to us.
Why did He do this? It is a principle
on this earth, that no two can walk to*
gcthor unless thoy be agre d; some
natures are repulsive to you and you
desire to get away from them and thero
is 110 affinity; now thero was no affinity
between God and man, Bin hid divided them, and yet while we were
out of nlliuity Ho overcomes all ordinal y and extraordinary difficulties be*
tweon Htm and us and comes forth to
us with n Saviour. Now I wantyou to
remember this whon praying that it
\vp nothing but His graco, His love,
to us and for us, the spontaneous outcome of love alone that, unattracted,
when He saw our helplessness ou account of sin, caused Him to givo His
only begotten Sou, Then I would like
yuu would notice the intuition He has;
it Uio open to us the good in tho
other world, by throwing us into relation with tho provisions for tho great
future. What wo cannot do or get for
ourselves God's hand provides a way
and means, He almoat does too muoh
for us iu the lullnoss of the provisions
mndo for our temporal. wnnls during
onr short existence here. If God so
provides for us here, for a short life,
1ki\v much more will He look to the
othor, lhe eternal life. Think whut
tlio storehouse, tho banqueting, thu
waving i'f the banner of lovo should bo
lo us, tho knowledge that we shall be
continually growing iu our relation*
ship, our likeness, our nearness to
Him.   Now thoro are two things for
reflection. What manner of persons
ought we to be and wbat ought we to
do in response to so much love frotn a
Father's heart? Thon what ought you
to do who never gavo yourself, who
never obeyed, who nover accepted the
conditional right to that brotherhood
aud companionship with Him who has
provided fov this lift- and the othor
that is beyond? Here you take with
alacrity the bountiful provision made
for the present and temporal Tfe.
What ought you to do with respect to
the provision for tlie higher and bettor life? Why you ought to obey tho
conditions and claim the gifts.
ritKSUYTEUIAN CHURCH.
In thu evening at thu Pivshytoriun
church the Rev Thos. Scouler took
as his text SoIoiuou'b Song, D chap., IU
v.: "He is my Friend." He spoke
ns follows: Tho subject to-night in
"Friflndship," There aro few who
havo no friends; the r-amu has a certain charm aud few hearts are not
gladdened by deep and lasting friendships; it is a necessity—in fnct, it has
been questioned if life would be worth
living without it. Friendship means
the association of two or more friends,
and tho duration depends upon the na*
tureof tho ties and the'circumstances
under whicli they were created. Ordinary friendships will not bear too
great a strain, they will uot bear taxing too muoh, for where there is too
much stress vory often what would
havo otherwise been a lasting friendship is broken up, aud heart burnings
and detestation Jake tho place of esteem. Somo friendships are formed
with the higher purpose uf mutual
help in the divine life, and audi friendships are not easily broken. Some are
founded on and for the purpose of personal advantage and profit, either in
business or political spheres, and are
endeavored to be lormed in words of
pra.se and promise until after the end
is gained, when the too one-sided and
non-mutual relationship is severed, It
is so in business partnerships; when
one tries to steal from the other, it is
soon all up, and tho silken cords
broken and the mutual help gone.
Friendship should, like a sweet smelling flower, invigorate, and it thrives
best in the soil of virtue, for there is
nothing moro uncertain than tho
friendship of the vicious; it is like
rotten timber, the moment is is strained it breaks asunder. It used to be an
old sayiii" that there was honor amonp
thieves; but it ia very hard to see this.
What kind of honor or friendship
could it bo that is based upon am? It
is wrong aud therefore could not endure, and if such associations nre
formed you should try and break loose
from them and from those whose ovil
influence would drag you down to per-
dition. Truo friendships are formed
on principles of virtue; choose the
companionship of those who have
clinsun tho good part, those who would
help to elevate you to a higher plane
of Christian experience; those with
whom your companionship makes you
bettor in thought aud feeling. I say
cherish such friendships as these. They
wilt weep when you weep and rejoice
when you rejoice, and Trill nob only bo
with you in prosperity but also when
tho clouds comes and the surroundings
seem dark, their sympathy will be
found helpful. Such helpful aud sympathizing fiioiidships aro often found
in tho holy relation uf husband and
wife, God, in tho Garden of Eden,
saw that it was not good for man to be
alone. He said, "I will make a helpmeet for him'}",a divider of his joys
and sorrows. There are many of the
young hore. You look forward to this
estate; your selections should be made
with the gruateat care. Paul says in
2 Cor., 0 ch. 42 v., "Bo ye not unequally yoked together with unbelievers." Whilst there maybo much in
professing Christians to deplore, still,
with all tho inconsistencies, if Ihe
grace of Gud bo in the heart tho coin*
panioiiihip will be safer thnu with one
who has not that grace. One of the
first things ti bo considered when you
intend linking yourself for life is to bs
sure your intended is a Christian, for
you have no right to form unholy alliances, and those who do so will have
trouble; mistakes may bo made and
deception perpetrated. There can be
no haFpiness if bounded by time, thor"
is a wrong start and thero is a cnubtant
pull in opposite directions. Oh, how
many homes aro unhappy to-day for
want of religion in them, lu forming
these acquaintances, which may prove
lasting ties, seek beauty of mind and
S'.ml as well and in preference for
form and beauty, they will bo found of
ni' ve valuo. Please God and you are
moro likely to please each othor. To
those who havo sailed out on this lifo
companionship and who find tho yoke
does uot always suit, pray that your
wholo household may bo dovotcd to
God. Man is sanctified by tho Christian influence of his wife; seek to do
good and bo the means of doing good.
There is the friendship of ono I would
recommend to yon before closing; "ono
who sticketh closer than a brother}"
but to gain whose friendship Ho must
be trusted, consulted, His commands
obeyed; and whero this is done Ho
abides in tho soul. My friends, is this
your friend? Now seek earthly friendships, but abovo all seek Jesus to
lead and guide you by his counsel in
this life and afterward receive you to
His presenco in glory.

in England,
TUB l'ARSt.l.L COMMISSION,
London, Oct. 21.—Judgo Hannen,
presiding judge of the Parnell commission, whioh will resume business
at the old stand neit Thursday, has
expressed a strong determination to
unearth the missing books cf the
league, and the first business of the
commission will be an attempt to extort something in regard to their
whereabout* from Mr. Henry Campbell, Parnell's private secret .ry. AU
similar attempts mado at last session of
the commission proved futile, and it is
claimed now the failure to elicit any
evidence on the subject was due entirely to lack of information on the
subject on the part of the questioners,
During tho long recess, neither Judge
Hannen nor the attorney-general have
been idle, and under their instructions
the secretary of the commission, it is
stated, haa gathered full and complote
information as to the manner in which
the missing books and documents were
disposed of. This information, it is
claimed, will onable the attorney-general to question Mr. Campbell, and
other witnesses who have been sub*
pcened to testify, with sufficient knowlodgo of the facts to insure truthful
and valuable evidence.   The friends of
from to-day. Among tho royil personages who will he present will be tbe
Emperor of Germany, brother of the
bride, tbe EmpreBs Frederick, tbe
bride's mother, and Augusta Victoria,
her sister-in-law; King Christian of
Denmark, grandfather of tho {room,
and George of Grooce, tlie groom's
father.

THE BENTILLE DISASTER.
London, Oct. 21.—Tho engineers
this morning pronounced the Bentille
colliery, at Langton, safe, and the
superintendent again culled for volunteers among the miners to go down for
the purpose of bringing up the remaining bodies of the men killed In the recent explosion, but not a single man
responded. The stench from the de-
composition of the bodies is so great
that not one of the men could be
tempted by offers of big pay to again
enter the mine. Two rival coroners
are on the ground awaiting the production of the bodies underneath the
ground, while a disgraceful quarrel between them aa to the question of jurisdiction stands iu the way of any disposition of the 37 bodies already re*
covered. Aa ihey cmunot he buried without a permit from one of these two enterprising officials, and as neither will
grant this until the other withdraws
his claim to the right to hold an in-
qu:st, the situation is as dangerous to

Tho president, vice-president and
secretary of the board of trade, and
Messrs. Charles Wilson and M. Lum-
by, forming a committeo appointed to
interview the government on tho question of opening up the Kootenay lake
mining district, waited upon tho executive yesterdny. Tho importance of
providing adequate means of transport
and travel into the new mining region
was dwelt upon by the committoe, and
tho government were urged to hasten
the building of a road connecting Kootenay Lako with the Columbia river.
This, thoy claimed, would keep the
trade of tho region within British Columbia. At present nearly all sup-
plica are obtained from tho American
side, Tho premier assured the committee that a survey uf the road would
be commenced forthwith, nnd that nn
engineer was even now under instructions to proceed to the ground and begin work. The constructing of the
road would, without doubt, commence
at the earliest possible moment in the
spring. It was also understood by the
government that a line of railway
would bo built between Sprott'a landing and Nelson in the nesr future,
with the object of attracting the growing trade of tho region to iti natural
channel,—Saturday's ColonH.

GREAT CONSPIRACY.
St. Petersburg, Oct. 21.—A widespread conspiracy of a political nature
has been discovered in southern Russia, whieh for extent and daring of
purpose ia the most dangerous that has
lately been brought to light. The
principal members were students who
had associated themselves with certain
revolutionary societies in Austrian
Gallioia, and their scheme waa to profit
by the defeat of Russia in the war expected to occur between Russia and
Austria, and ultimately to secure political consolidation and legislative independence under Austrian supremacy. Arrests are being made and
the police are following up various
clues.

Salclde Ilir-Hi- Drink.
Tlio Kamloops Scnf i»*;( of the 19th
inst. tells of tho suicide of a man
named David McMartin, last Wednesday morning on the Caribou roc1.
McMartin left Ashcroft on Thursday
morning, the 10th inst, with a seven-
horse team and freight wagon laden
with merchandise for Barkerville and
way points. He laid over at Cache
Creek two days and at Cargill'a two
days, From Cargill's he went to
Dougherty's, arriving there on Tuesday of this weok. On Wednesday
morning he continued his journey, and
went about five miles on his way to
Clinton, whore ho stopped and tied the
horses by the road side. About 11
o'olock on the samo day tho st-ye reached there and the driver stopped to look
for McMartin, but could seo nothing
of him. A searching par.y was formed
at Clinton, and a search made for him
on Wednesday, but no truce cf him
could bo found. On Thursday a larger
party was organized, and tho woods
thoroughly searched. Tho hunt was
successful and the unfortunate man
was found hanging to a tree, dead,
Tho body waB cut down and taken 11
Clinton, there tu await the action of
tho authorities. The deceasod had
been drinking heavily at Ashcroft, and
it appears he contim ad his libations
at point; along the routo, and the
natural supposition is that he became
temporarily insane through excessive
drinking and while laboring under the
craze committed the rash deed whioh
ushered his soul into the presenco of
his maker.
McMaitiu was well known in Kamloops and surrounding section, and wns
generally conceded to be a harmless
and inoffensive fellow. He originally
oamo from the neighborhood of Durham, Grey county, Ont,, where it is
believed he has friends or relatives
Btill residing. He was betwoen 40 and
60 yeaia of age.

Accounts from tho Athabaska region, hid before the synod of the
diocese of Athabaska, notes nn eastern exchange, reproaent tho Indians
thero us in a slate of .starvation.
Rabbits aro said to liavo been ull
exterminated, and partridges have
boooine scarce ■ und, aa sometimes
ha I-I*-' is wilh wild animals, there
was gieut mortality among tho heaver lai-t winter. Lynx huvo become
scarce; the Beaver Indians have
killed most of their horsos for food,
and tiie fishery on Athabaska Lake
and tlio adjoining rivers waa bad
last autumn and winter. Several
cases of cannibalism aro reported to
have icjurred among Indians who
have i great abhorrence of that
crime, lint who wore driven to it as
the on y escape from death. Some
Iimito< relief has boen afforded by
tho missions and trading posts,
but I ow inadequate these sources
were is told by the mortality.
One mrty of Orees numbering
twenty-nine is reported to have
been -.-educed to three by cannibalism. In othor instances death resulted from starvation. In this ex-
tremit /, the Dominion government
is nati rally looked to for help, and
to be i ffective it will have to come
soon. Tho Indian can be pauperized at well as civilized men by having hi:., wants supplied without exertion on his part. But the present
crisis not only justifies but makes
absolutely necessary tho supply of
state relief.
Tbe latest reports of tho government of India on the subject of irrigation in that division of the empire are interesting. In no country
in tho world has irrigation been carried out on such it lurge scale as in
tho Indian segment of tho empire.
There the government has control
of the operations, nml millions have
been spent and the best engineering
talent has been employed on the
process. In India irrigation is nn
urgent necessity. In 1877 78 there
were lost in the northwest provinces
of India by drouth 3,420,000 tons
of food grain, equivalent to tho food
of 21,000,000 of population. During
the famine which followed over a
million and a quarter of people died
of want, and this isa sample of what
occurs from time to time in India
in tlie unirrigated districts*. Since
the awful scenes of 1887-78 the Indian government has given more attention to the extension of tho urea
of irrigation, especially in tho Punjab, which bus usually sulfered the
most from long arid periods. In that
district cf India irrigation is effected
by permanent and inundation canals,
thf foi mer for crops at any time in
the year, und the latter for one crop
following tlio rainy season. There
aro five perennial canals in the Pun-
jab, in wliich §22,0-30,000 have been
in vested, to irrigate an area of 1,210,-
607 acres which lust year produced
crops valur-d at about $14,300,000.
Tite net return on the capital in
qhtirgos for water service amounted
to 4 per tent., uud tho people along
the longest canal (542 miles, aerving
400,00 J f.crea) pay but half-rates, as
theyaie being educated in the art
of irrig iting their crops. The inundation c.mals, which are used for
only one crop after the rainy season,
show tho net returns on the capital
invest*,* 1 much larger than in tho
case of the perennial canals, ranging from IjO to 170 per cont.
wimmin," was the opinion expressed
a gootl while ngo by a competent au
thority, and the dictum has nover
been questioned. Most mon would
declare unhesitatingly that if a woman should wake and find a burglar
in her room she would either scream
so us to raise the roof or elso faint
dead away, and yet here are two
modern instances, ono where a women clothed only in a robe de nuit,
chased tho burglar down stairs,
and the other where another
woman dropped her man with
a pistol, Perhaps thero is no
lesson to be drawn from these
two incidents, unless it be that it is
the unexpected which always hap
pens, but at the next national convention of burglars resolutions will
probnbly be adopted demanding tho
taking of extra precautions in visiting houses in which there are only
lone, lorn women.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The strike among school-children,

Tho Imperial palace at Strasburg,
where the German Emperor and
Empress resided during their recent

years to build, and it has cost £130,-

family of Prussia, and the contractors for the various parts of the

Signor Crispi relates tho following
anecdote : "During my first interview with Bismarck, at Fried rich-
shuho, the chancellor caused two enormous glasses of beer to be brought,
and invited me to drink the one
placed before me. I protested thut
I drank only water, whereat tho
Princo seemed astonished beyond
measure, but said nothing. But
when he had emptied his own
glass he slowly drunk the one
which hud been intended for me.
Shortly afterward two large pipes
filled with tobacco- were brought.
The Prinoe lit his own and handed
tlie other to mo. 'Your Highness,'
I observed, 'many thanks, but I do
not smoke.' 'What !' exclaimed
Bismarck, rather impatiently. 'You
don't drink and you don't smoke 1
what sort of a man are you, then?' "
Difierence of opinion exists among
labor authorities on the subject of
the eight-hour movement. The English trades unions are not unanimously in favor of it. But our
Canadian trades council has come out
boldly in its behalf. At a recent
labor meeting at Hamilton Mr. Powderly spoke with referonce to it.
He says he favors the eight-hour
day, but he is of opinion that it is
not to be obtained through strikes.
Agitation alone can secure it. The
chief of tho Knights of Labor is,
like Chief Arthur, strongly opposed
to strikes except as a last resort.
He looks for results from influence
brought to bear upon public opinion.
The dock strike in London has nevertheless, done good. It has given
the laborers bettor pay, und has exposed to tbe dock shareholders the
faot tbat dividends and wages have
been small because tho directors
overpaid   themselves.
Tho oldest notes are tho "flying
money," or "convenient money,"
first issued in China 2697 B. O.
Originally these notes were issued
by tho treasury, but experience dictated a change to the banks under
government inspection aud control.
The early Chinese "greenbacks"
were in all esseutrials similar to tiio
modern bank notes, bearing the
name of the bank, date of issue, the
number of the note, tho signature of
ofiicial issuing it, indications of its
value in figures, in words, and in
the pictorial representation in coins
or heaps of coins equal in amount
to its face value, and a notice of tho
pains und penalities foiling counterfeiting. Over and above all was a
laconic exhortation to industry and
thrift: "Produce all you can : spend
wilh economy." The notes wero
printed in blue ink, on paper made
from the fibre of the mulberry tree.
One issue, in 1396 UO., is all carefully preserved in the Asiatic Museum at St. Petersburg.

THE  NABLUS  SAMARITANS.
SoniothluB About tbo Oldest and StnnUest
Soot In the World.
There la to bo found in the heart of tho
small city of Kablus, in North Palestine, u
littlo religious community—now numbering
nbout ono hundred and fifty souls, which
has defied the ravages of war and poverty
uud oppression nearly throo thousand
years. Unlike the Vaudols, theso Samaritans have had no friendly system of mountain buttresses to defend them through tho
centuries; and, still more unlike the long-
lived Savoyard Protestants, they havo beon
right in the pathway along which tho devastating armies havo marched buck aud
forth from tlto timo of Sargon to Napoleon.
But, writes Kov. Dr. John F. Hurst In Harper's Magazine, they havo lived on, and
their unity has novor boon brokon, They
have clung to littlo Nablus and to their
sacred Mount Gorizim, os the very cactus
roots to tbo granite sides Of tho somber
Ebul that confronts them across their littlo
enchanted valley.
As the population of Nablus la just about
13,000, tbo littlo Samaritan community is
almost absorbed by tho surrounding Mo-
iiaminetlan mass. Savo to a careful observer tlio vory existence and presenco of
the Samaritans us a distinct clement of
citizenship in Nnblus would not bo noticed.
Tho Samaritans wear a turban much liko
that of their truo Moslem neighbors, but
between tho history and theology of tlto
two classes thore Is not a sin glo point of
positive resemblance.       *      *      *
The. Sainnritun synagogue is a small
building in tho center of Nubble, half obscured by tho surrounding dwullinira. I
pnGaciUbrouRh arched und littered streets
to a littlo court, in tho middle of wliich waa
a Httlo plot of grass, relieved by three
trees, two of which woro lemon, I horo
found a littlo Samaritan school, uud at tho
sight of a stranger tho ehildron sprang
from tho floor whero thoy wero sitting,
kissed my hand, and begged for backsheesh. Tbo teacher was a youth of about
fourteen, tho son of Amrain, the liigb priest.
I wus greatly disappointed at falling to find
Antrum himsolf, but in tho end this circumstance aided mo in my chief object, for tbe
young man was willing, for a good fee, to
show ma the ancient Pentateuch. His
rather might havo been deaf to all entreaties.
Tho claim of tho Samaritans to have a
copy of the Pentateuch oldor than the Jewish 13 supported by tholr own unbrokon tra*
iliUoii, and by tbo opinion of soma learned
men of tbe present time in Christian countries. But tho weight of Internal evldenceis
against it—among which may bo mentioned
grammatical emendations, late glosses
in tlto text, insertions of foroign passages,
alterations, Snmarilnnisms, and changes In
support of Samaritan doctrine.
Tlioro nro throe codices kept in tho littlo
synagogue in Nablus, two boing generally
shown to strangers, Itls very rarely that
iho veritable one can bo seen. My goud
fortune in getting a hasty look tit it waa
duo to tho venturous and avaricious spirit
.if Amram's son, rather than to any management of my own. Having first exhibited tbo two imitations, tbo youug man,
upon tho offer of an additional fco, then
brought out tho original scroll from a chest.
After tho removal of tho red sntiu cover I
saw thut tho codex was inclosed in a silver
cylindrical case, which had two doors opening on two seta of hinges, When these
doors wero thrown baok tho wholo column
was exposed to tho vision. This cylinder
is of rich workmanship, It is ubout tint
foci and a half long and nearly a foot in
diameter, und presents' in exquisitely raised
work, a good plan of tho Tabernacle,
with every part given with tbo utmost minuteness and rarest skill, The
roll consists of dingy skins—prepared before the invention of parchment—sewed together with neat stitcbeB, aud worn and
patched, uud horo and thero entirely Illegible, Tho flldus are of equal size,' and
measure oach twenty-five inches long and
liftcon wido.
Ueforo leaving Nablus I had tlio opportunity of spending an evening with Amrum
at his own house. Ho lived in lho greatest
simplicity, though iu Palestine that is tlio
rulo father than tho exception. Mrs. El
Kui-cy, tho wifo of tlio missionary iu Nablus
in the employment of tho Church Missionary Society of London, wus good enough to
accompany mo and serve us interpreter.
Tho.vonerable high priest, who was barefooted, uud clad in a great turbau and loose
flowing robe,' recoived us with calm und
dignified cordiality in his rocm-at ouuo his
parlor, dining-room und bedroom. His very
used mother was lying on tho floor, covered
with bed-clothing and asleep. Thero wero
soveral children, half asleep, lying about
tho room. Amram's son-in-law was slowly
copying a Pentateuch—for tho Samaritans
liavonoprluting-prcss. It requires a year
to make a copy, which Is novor sold, and is
only used by tho community.
Tlio peculiar views of Amram may bo
said to represent very fairly tho theology
of his dying community. Tho world, ho
claimed, is about seven thousand years old.
Pur JUty-ilve years mou will go ou increasing in wirkedncss, after which there will
somo .■■ time of grout peaco and purity.
Then there will como on a now period of
consummate wickedness, which will last
three hundred years. Tliis timo will bocon*
stimulated by tbo total dootruction of tho
world. After this the genoral judgment
will tako place, when tho righteous will go
to livo with Ood and tho wicked with Satau.

Antrum looked off, as if iu the distance, and
said: "Ood is one I" Here ho intended
a slight thrust at all Christians, becauso of
their emphasis ou Christ and His divlno
bhaructor.
Ho spoko with interest of tho ruins on
Uouiil Gorizim, and of tho Increaso of his
tiummunlty within tho last thirty years.
Ho closed by expressing his firm belief that
tho time would como when the Samaritans
would bo tho most numerous body in tho

CHINESE  STORE  CLOTHES.
' A Visit to llio listitaltUHltmtiuti of Now
York's I-ig-Tnll-sU roola.
' Thero nro many Chinoso tailor shops in
Pfetv York.   Mott street is filled with them.
i i'iioy •■so in collars, whore pig-tailed Mon-
ko. i'uii3 sit and watch on three-legged
stools, aod a pass-word or a doteotivo is
ne. del to pass a stranger from the street.
They aro in tho rear of first-floor shops and
soniei avo in upper stories, through long,
wilding halls that smell of dried fish, boil*
iiif birds' nests and frying pigs' tails. The
clothes arc kopt on dingy shelves and in
' boxes under dark counters, and only form
part of tho general stock, liko nails in a
lta-dnaro shop. But thore is only ono Poole
In ."Sew York, and he has no imitators, says
[ the New York Mail and Express. To Imi*
tatiourCoIostialPoolorequirefl more cap-
itiv tliiin tlio averago Chinaman possesses,
Mr Toole is known to the business public
- ti3 Moi Leo Wu & Co., and is familiarly
callod Mr. Mel by those who have tho honor
i>i ids personal acquaintance. His place of
l-ii!.in-.!S8 is iti the Bowery, whero he occu-
pies the flrst floor and the basement of
ono of tho largest buildings under the
shadowof tho olovated road.
I    1 ho tailor shop looks as little like the cus-
! ternary clothing store as a Chinoso laundry
doos hlto n Murray Hill drawing-room. It
Is rv largo room filled with tables pllod high
with goods, and olothing seems to bo about
tho only thing that is not offered for salo.
A casual caller might fancy at tho door
that Ml*, Mei kept a tea store, Boforo ho
hnd gone twenty feet'ho would credit him
fl wlih keeping a crockory storo, Another
Imlf-dozen pacos would chango bis opinion
tig'iin, with onothor chango ln tbo appear**
tui.-o of thostoro. On the flrst row of tables aro kopt Chineso wares of all styles
und at all prlcoB, from common crockery
, sets worth {5 eaeh to a superb rod vase
valued at $1,000. On tho next row are
• ghisawaro and square boxes holding teas
mid spiced herbs. Behind glass cases,
against tho wall, aro knick-knacks in ivory
and gilt, worth a week's wages for evory
' square inch of surface. Farther back in
the storo are laundry goods and tha various utensils used by the frugal Mongolians
for their housekeeping.
|   The Chinoso Poolo is aMacyand a Kid-
■ loy combined. Against tho rear wall,
wliich conceals from tho barbarian world
tho I Ivlng apartments of Mr. Mel and protty
Mrs. Mei, is kept tho clothing. Itls all mado
in China and imported in bulk. Here are
clothes onough to deck out tho 8,000 China*
- men of Now York in holiday attiro and keep
them in their Sundny clothes for a yoar. *
A Chinaman's overy-day outfit is beautiful in its simplicity.  It consists of a pair of
j loose trousers almost as short as pantalettes and entirely wanting iu frills, an
undershirt, a short coat that is callod Chan
v, Ba Tien, or something that sounds liko
thnt, and an overcoat   known   to   tho
■ inliisUed as a Poo Hoi Sam.   Tho boots,
; called Tien Sun Hi, together with tho hat
■ and hosiery, completo tho wardrobe.
Thu undershirt doos not differ materially
from that worn by nativo New Yorkers, and
is usually made of pongee Bilk. Chinoso
dutleB when not working In tholr laundries
wear finer grades of silk. Tho long coat is
only worn on festal occasions by tho common
■ clasat*:-of Chinese. Tho working-men usually contont themselves with tho short coat.
Tho long garmont costs from 510 to flB, depending upon the wealth and rank of tho
wearer. The lowest priced article Is made
of coarso silk and is usually blue or black In
color.
The short coat sometimes costs $200, but
the variety usually seen on tho streets enn
bo bought for from f5to|3. It is mado of
silk and is ofton given a waterproof gloss
and does doublo servico as coat ana
brelta.
Tho sandal-shaped boots aro made of
clothand have solos an Inch thick. Theso
solos aro fashioned of layers of cotton
pressed; together, and aro as Impervious to
' moisture as solo leather. The tops of tho
slices aro embroidered, and thoy sell at
. from (il.fiO to $50 a pair.
As nono of tho coats havo sleeves tho
selection of a suit of Chinese clothes ia both
Himplo and satisfactory. The customer
simply fits tho garment around his neck,
' antl takes cnro to select ono that is not too
loi g for him and tho task is dono.
Chinoso boots havo no right or loft, and
th>: only care iu choosing a pair is to see
' thi-tthey are not too tight or ao loose as to
rub up and down nt tho heel.
Mr. Mci's clerks follow an admirable sys*
; torn in selling their clothing by thowhole-
' mil *. Thoy havo a numbor of Uttle wooden
. mi.nikins which aro dressed in tho various
co! tmuos offered for salo. Thoso nro the
sain -ilea and from them tlio choice is mado.
Tho higher grades of clothing aro not offered for sale indiscriminately. Thoy aro
thb marks of rank and c*in only bo worn by
thi so entitled to the honor. I am not cer-
tnin about this point, but I understand from
Ml. Mci's second assistant, whoso knowledge of English Is but little moro extensive
thru my acquaintance with Chineae, that it
is not permitted thom to Bell high grade
ok thing to a base born customer, But however that may bo, I saw no rich garments in
the assortment, and oven tho manikins
wearing such goods woro carefully put out
of the way in ono of tho glass cases by the
door.
Whilo thero aro a number of Chinoso
clothing stores in New York, thero is no
Chinese tailor. All clothing is ready made.
Than ks to tho Celestial stylo of coats, evory
ono, from a giant to a hump-backed dwarf,
c-m bo fitted wtth equal caso, and as to
trowsers, all that Is over soon of them by
tho publio Is tho bottoms, which to bo in
stylo must flap against the ankles at ovory
stop. |
GIRLS  WHO SMOKE.
Bomo ns n Itmuody for Toothache, Others
Because They Liko It. fljT ""
A letter-writer from Hartford Bays it is
not disputed that thore are a great numbor
of Connecticut young ladies who smoko
cigarettes, and many of thom aro less than
sixteen years old. Not loss than a scoro of
Norwich maidens smoko, and two or threo
girl3 in short dresses occasionally aro seon
puQling ut a cigarette while on tholr way to
school. In mnny instances tho female smokers boldly buy thoir tobacco supplies at tho
cigar Btorcs; in others a gentleman friend,
whose ago ranges from six to sixty yoars,
min hi tors to tho f ominlno demand. In Hartford tho number of young ladles who smoko
is twico or throo times as great as that in
this town, and in Bridgeport, Now Haven,
Mention aud Waterbury thoro aro foraato
monitors, both minors and adults. It Ib ovt
den tto overy ono that tho officers empowered to onforco tho Jiivcnlto Smokers' net
will havo to bo mon of conspicuous tact and
inc*-ii.iustiblo discretion. . ■*-■
• A startling illustration of tho passion
wltli which Connecticut girls have takon a
stand on the tobacco quostion may ho noted'
At Waterbury not long ago a fashlonablo
young lady talked freely with a newspaper
reporter. Sho said: "0, yes, wo all havo
smoked moro or less. I hardly know of a
girl in my acquaintance who has not smoked
cigarettes at somo timo or othor—just to sec
how it would tasto or seem, you know.
Thou lots of us smoko them for toothache
You doubt It! Woll, just try It tho noxt
timo you have a toothacho and seo whether
lt is of any good. It's a suro ouro. Moat
of us have tho toothacho quito often, you
can Imagine." . .-        .^,-fv*-.™
Still another Connecticut city girl expressed her views: "Why, of courso wo
mnoko more or loss; all socioty girls do. I
mean cigarettes, of courso, though I know
a good many young ladies lu tho highest
society circles who rarely pass a day without smoking a half, or at least part, of a
rogular full sized mild cigar. Why, it's
easy enough to got cigarettes. AU tho drug
uloi'oa keep cigarettes nowadays, you
Know, and nothing ill is thought of a young
lady who goes boldly ln and buys n pnok-
ii'.'i. Why should it bo considered a quoB*
tlonablo not? How is a dealer to know
whether thu purchaser or a malo member
o< hor family is going to use thom. Why,
in New York ahd all othor fashionable
ci ,l?s Booloty girls, toarn to smoko in board*
ir.-f.r-chools, Thoy frequently bogln by
ivrn-whig a olgaretto of a gentleman
fi tend, nnd nfter thoy havo learned what a
jelly thing tobacco is why they tako up
cigar smoking—just a littlo bit, you know,
because then thoy havo learned to enjoy
smoking asa luxury, not as a novolty," -

Tho neighborhood of Union Depot, Tenn,,
wus distracted with feudal troubles during
tho war, says a correspondent of tho Philadelphia inquirer. Colonels Snap, Ledbotter
and Loltb, of tho Confederate forces, with
their partisan bauds, ravaged tho country
from ono end to tho other, and wore an**
with otorn resistance by tho Union Homo
guards, At lho beginning of thn hoBlili-
tica tho bridge across tho Halston, above
Union Depot, was fixed upon for destruction by the Confederate officials.
A band of men undor Colonel Ledhotter
was sent up from Knoxvlllo to lire the
structure Thoy arrived in tho town just
after sunset, and proceeding to tho bridge
found it guarded by two mon. Ono of thoso
guards run away when tho.Confederates began to smear tho bildgo with coal oil, but
tho othor remained, and, shotgun iu hand,
opposed tlio marauders. As thoy advanrod
ho retreated, fighting thom step by step,
and several of tho guorrlllas, shot dead,
foil from tho bridgo into tho turbulent
stream and wero carried on down toward
tlio Tennessee,
Kimilly tlio brave defender was overtaken
nud otib of Uio Confederates, who know
blm, cried out, with musket cocked and presented to his hcurt;
"SuiTondcr, or you aro a doad man."
"Nover," cried tho watchmnn, and ho discharged his shotgun full at tho advancing
man's heart.
Tlio Confederate fell upon tho ties, and
his body, resting for a moment, finally
tumbled Into tho river below. Tno burly
watchman's gun was empty and ho had shot
awny nil of his ammunition. Ho clubbed
his gun, and iu tho lurid light, already flaring nbout him from tho fired bridge, ho
fucod his enemies, resolute, delimit totho
last. They rushed upon him nnd he waa
overpowered. His gun was wrested from
bla hands, and a Btout ropo was wound
about his body, fast inclosing his arms.
"Whut. ihall wo do with him?" asked tho
leader.
"Ho should hangt Hang him!" echoed
the chorus.
"To the cedar grovel" was tho ordor, and
thoso grim guorrlllas, with tho bound
watchman in tholr midst, marched back
across tho bridge, now a shoot of flamo, nnd
through tho town, to a donso grove of
cedars on tho ridgo beyond.
Horo they halted, aud tbo leader of tho
band, addressing the prisoner, said:
"It's the vordict of tho crowd that you be
banged.  Havo you any thing to say}"
"Nothing!"was thodefiantanswer. "You
aro whelps and I am a Union man. Do
your worst."
"Stringhim upl" ordered tho loader, and
a rope was produced and knotted about tho
patriot's ucck.
Ho was allowed a minuto for prayer, and
his whito lips wero lnaudlbly voicing a last
petition to tho groat Fathor, when a slender, girlish figure, attired in snowy white,
burst through tho grim throng and throw
her arms around tho doomed mini's nock.
With nervous Angora sho undid tho noose,
and, forcing tho stern-visu gal crowd
aside, cried out In daughterly indignation:
"For shame I You aro fifty to one, and
you would commit murder. This is my father. If you hang him you shnll hang ine
alHo."
The guorrlllas wore abashed at this bold
defense, and for a timo said nothing. Finally one man spoko, and ho evidently voiced
tlie sentiments of his fellows, for his words
were wildly choorod.
"Now," said ho, "lot's adjourn J elf Davis
la a trco man."
"Aye! oyol" was tho answer, nnd they
slunk away, leaving father nnd daughter to
make their way back to tho little town,
which now was photographed against tho
sky's background by tho lurid glare of tho
burning bridge.
Father and daughter still live in Union
Depot, and evory night tho brave, girl, now
a matron with children about her knees,
gathers up her two bright tin bucket!! and
journeys to tho spring below tho town,
chatting gayly with her neighbor women.

Wo woro standing ono day in fro-itof a
small country store In a onc-horso town in
Southwestern Indiana, says a writer in the
American Commercial Travolor, Wo hnd
mud o tho rounds und wero waiting for tho
train. Tlio conversation turned In somo w;\y
to tho subject of eyesight. An old Hoosler
farmer who hnd been Hstonlng to our conversation lounged up and snid: " I reckon yew
fellers air right smart chaps o-galllvaiitin'
roun' through thokontry Hlto I heorn tell yow

Jos' Ins' week I wus huntln'—monn' my

I tuk up my gun tow shuto. 'What d'yo

"Very acuto eyesight," I romarked.
"Cute!" tho old Hooslor answorcd.
"Wai, I dunno's thar war nothin' so very
cute 'bout it, but I reckon it war right
Bmnrtseoin'."
All through this wonderful recital Georgo
B., who dearly loved a practical joke and
noror missed nn opportunity toperpotrato
one, hnd stood gazing fixedly off toward the
northern horizon. When tho Hooslor had
finished ho remarked! "Yes, undo, that
was mighty good'Bccin',' no doubt; but IMI
go you a big, round dollar that you can't
tell mo tho number of geese In that flock up
there," pointing in tho direction In which
ho had been gazing. Wo all lookod, but
could seo nothing. Georgo winked. Tho
old mnn shaded hiB oyes with his hnnd and
said: 'Wai, I reckon 1 kin bco tho gceso

nohow, stranger, but I ca'lato thoy's'bout

handed over ono dollar, "whoro ln blazes

Not nt nil. It wns n gradual butposltlvo

nn their vitality, their nervo powers,
their brain tlNStte, wus loo groat, and thoy
gradually butBtiroly sank under it, Tho
things they did lo hrlngtlilssadeiiftabbut
aro precisely the same things being

Tliey all end dlsiistrosi-ily unless clii'irki'il

Prof, Phelps, of Dartmouth Oolloge,

Palne's Celery Compound, if iluhtly
taken, will renew the brain uml build up
nervo tissues as fast as lliey become exhausted. Hts not a narcotic, it contains
uo drugs, no nostrums. It Is per/flatly
puro. It Is absolutely liarmle.su. The
high character of its discoverer guarantees this, and the Indorsement ot the
medical and chemical professions
prove It.

KENNEDY BROS,
isol rROPRIETOItS:
Bryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came to Westminster to buy him a pair.    '
"I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If I can find J. Rousseau's," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He-hunted the stores all along the main route,
Says he, "The right one I've not yet found out.
I want J. Rousseau—I'll buy only from him,
For he sells the cheapest," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He stepped a little west of McKenzie street,
He met Rousseau's sign—sure it was a great treat;
He lifted the latch, and Jim stood within.
" I've found it at last," says Bryan O'Lynn.
We showed him both Calf Boots, Kip and Cowhide,
The ones we praise mostly, without seams at the side.
We have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Berlin;
" Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for we sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "Be not taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
" If there is a leak in the toe or side of your shoe,
Just take it to Rousseau, that's all you need do;
He will peg it or patch it just while you are in,
And the charge seems like nothing," says Bryan O'Lynn,

Squamish Charlie, ™'h-j.*- S-ili,-*, one of
the Indians charged with the murder
of D. J. Jackson, at Vancouver, on
Juno 30th, 1888, died at the provincial
gaol rn Saturday niglit. Charlie was
in perfdpt health when arrested iu July,
but a-iim tho day of bis commitment h8
was overcome with melancholy nnd
gradually pined away, suffering from
no particular disease until death gathered him to his fathers. On Saturday
Charlie showed signs of Boon depniting
life nud Mr. Moresby thought it best to
have hie ante inorlcm st toment taken
iu case ho bhould suddenly shake off tho
mortal coil. Capt. Pitteudiigh was
■iuiumonad, and iu tho presenco of witnesses took tho statement. It wasto
the oil'ect that ho aud Jim with some
other Ind'ana were drinking together.
Jackson went awny for a littlo while
with Jim's wifo, nnd when ho enme
backJi n took akiiifo and cut Jackson's
throat. This statement was mndo in
tho presence of J-m, who on being
asked, refused tu question tho dying
man. Forty minutes niter putting hia

peaceably, and seemingly glad thnt

brilliant, and a vory fair Wimbledon

Mr. Ward G. DeBeck arrived in tho

the east coast of Vancouvor Island,
just nbout opposite Bute Inlet 0.1 the
mainland. Mr. Dolieck is wording
largo timber limit* in lhat vicinity :'.nd
shipping the logs to Niinaimt* te supply
Mr. A. Haslotns mills ut that pointi
To a representative of Thb Columbian
M . DeBeck stated that thoro was a
great deal of fine timber on both tho
mainland and tho iiland, near the const
lines, but that a mat quantity uf valuable limber was being destroyed ovci-*
yoar by forest (iros. Thoso lircs aro
caused principally by ihu uarelcBBtlOSB
of tho natives, who in camping here
and there on the coast, set lire to tho
dry drift wood, with tlio result that
tho ilanicisprends Inland aud ruins mil
lions of foet of valuable timber annually. Mr. DeBeck thinks, a we hnvo
boforo pointed out, that police sur-
veiilaneu nnd more stringent regulations are urgently needed to prevent
thu present whulesalo destruction of
tho valuable timber resources of tho
provinco by fire. Another matter tbat
requires police intervention, Mr. Do-
Beck statea, is tho illicit whisky trado
carried on on the west const and among
tho Islands by moans of sloops. The
very worst sort of lire-water is supplied to Indiana and to thu logging
camps, and tho trado is constantly increasing. Thu Indians of tho coast
aro described as a most degraded, lazy
nnd thioviah lot. Altogether tho vicinity in quostion would stand looking
after, and Mr. DeBeck's suggestion
that a local justice of the poaco should
ba appointed and a small jjdvernmenii
police vessel provided to cruiso up and
down tho const continually, is a good
one. Cod, halibut and other tlsli aro
reported plentiful in tho vicinity of
Discovery Pass, and it is no troublo at
all to catch them with a line. Mr.
DeBeck loft again to-day for the west
