New York, Oot. 14.—At to-day's

eiused by eleotrio light and power

issued at 1 p. m. says that, the mysterious prisoner arrested last night by
Captain Schuttlor and brought to Chicago Avenuo station with his face
muffled in a hauderchief so as to con*
cenl his identity is John Graham, a

And this aftornoon an indictment will
be returned against Graham, and

wholo scheme is on the point of completo exposure. No startling developments are looked foF." Jerry O'Con-
ncl, charged with complicity in tho
jury bribing caso, this a. ra. gave bail

THE CRONIN TRIAL.
Chicago, Oct. 12.—It became apparent about tho middle of yesterday
afternoon that something akin to a
bomb had been exploded in the camp
of the prosecution in the Cronin caso.
Whether the nows was in the shape of
a confession, or whether a new mine
of evidence had suddenly beon discovered, it waa impossiblo to determine
until several hours' watching. Never
before since the day that the Carlson
Cottage wub discovered had the detectives and lawyers maintained such an
air of secrecy. Duriug tho aftornoon
and until early this morning tho attorney for tho state aud the polico officials
were either in conference or rushing
about on mysterious business. At 2:30
o'clock this morning two men were
taken out of Stato Attorney Long*

Liverpool, Oot. 14,—Wheat firmer;

wonderful.   It is never found iu a
wild state, and ia the only natural pro*
duot known that is not so found.   The
apple can ba traced to the crab of the
hedge, the plum is an improvement of
tho aloe.   But corn in any form was
never known to grow spontaneously.'
It aeems to have been put into man'a
hand along with the curse, "By the
aweat of thy brow shalt tbou earn thy
bread."   Bread corn is the most wonderful gift of God to man; it is not
the same as tho fruits which will grow
without caro or attention, but for it the
soil hu to be prepared with toil and
caro for only after sueh labor will it
grow; only then can come the glad
shout of Harvest. Home.    Another
strange thing, wherever man can settle
corn in some form will grow.   In tho
bleak and frozen north tho hardy barley and ryo find sustenance; in the
temperate zono wheat and its kindred
graini find favoring circumstances to
grow and bear a hundredfold; and ih
tho fierce, tropical climes, tho maize or
Indian corn are thero to supply man's
wants.   Wherever man goes thia gift
of God goes with him in somo form.
And the manner of using it is so peculiar that it ii still further romoved
from tho other natural products of the
bubbbar badly beaten. earth and imbued with itill more mys-
r           n , ..    b,,    ,,          ., tory.   When tho missionaries went to

THE DEPRAVED EARL.
London. Oct. 14.—The trial of Earl
Galloway, under an indictment for a
series of assaults upon girls of tender
years, began at Dunford to*day. The
court loom was packed with notable
persons. The prosecution was conducted by the lord advocate in person,
and 0 counsel headed by John Blair
Balfour, Q.C., appeared for the de*
fenco. The indictment, upon which
tho earl is on trial, to-day, is for indecently placing his hand upon a little
girl of ten years, named Gibbon. The
child testified to the assault as charged
in the indictment, and the teitimony
waa corroborated by other witnesses.
From the statement of the earl read
by his counsel deponent declared he
had merely assisted the child to alight
from a wall. The trial ended in a verdict of acquittal.
THE CHURCHES.
Summaries of Some of the City
Spoken Sunday.
HOLY TRINITY CHURCH.
Rev. H. Irwin preached at Holy
Trinity church yesterday morning from
Epheaians 4th chap, and 1st verse;
"I therefore, the prisoner of the Lord
beseech you that ye walk worthy of
tho vocation wherewith ye are called."
After all St. Paul had suffered, after
the superhuman struggle he had juit
gone through in the cause of hia master,
these words of his have a special
charm. At the end o£ great toila and
troubles we find him a prisoner, but
not a subject of despair or hopelesnosa.
Theae words of his, "Walk worthy of
the vocation wherewith ye are called,"
have a good ring in them and they sre
not tho words of a hopeless hesrt.
What ii your calling 1 Brethren, your
vocation ia the voiee of God that calls
you on; when we think of our vocation
we should think of it sb God's call. It
was not for nothing tbat Christ apont
a portion of his life working in a carpenter shop; it was for a purpose.
Therefore our Maker's call should find
an echo in our soul responsive of His
will. Many a careworn and anxious
mind has been relieved of a heavy burden, and many a life hai been made
to burn brighter by the vocation of
life having been changed into a higher
calling; and so tho soul should feel
when called by God. If you believe
in Christ's life you muit believe in
your calling. No doubt lifo has been
and will be unsatisfactory to those who
would do away with religion, for, forget that your vocation ia the call of
God, and sooner or later life will become on agonizing mockery. Oar
everyday life is a bright calling for
everyone of us, and this thought should
cheer us many times during the week
wo have just entered on. To the
brethren who prefer to live like the
brute creation around them and deny
the person of a God, there Is a terrible
awakening ahead—save us from suoh a
fate. Secular history gives ns proof
that our vocation is tho call of God;
and all the noble deeds of history, the
greatest and most glorious actions, will
be found to be the work of the Great
Power behind them. The calling of
the Christian ii hii duty, and hti life
li ennobled by Christ Himself.
METHODIST OHUROH HARVEST FESTIVAL.
At lho Methodist ohuroh yesterday
morning, a large congregation was
present. The church had been beautifully doeorated with evergreens and
other littoral productions. In front
of the platform tablei wore placed and
oach one literally groaned under the
load of harvest wealth heaped upon it.
Every imaginable species of garden
stuff, and alio tho tilled and ploughed
soil, were tastefully ranged around.
Sacks containing oats, wheat and other
oereals wore placed at intervals, and
interspersed wero four shocks of grain,
wheat, barley and oats. These bore a
word eaoh of the aentonco, "Praise yo
the Lord." Bouquets of flowers here
and there among the fruit and veget**
bles very tastefully set off the display.
Tho Rev. J. H. White was accompanied to the platform by Mr. Fiiher.
Mr. White, before leaving the platform
to Mr. Fisher, remarked that people
are too apt to take things for granted
now-a-days. They seem to think the
grain and fruit and flowers will grow
as a niatter ot course because thoy
have dono ao in yeara past. They aw
not so grateful as thoy ought to be-
But anyone who did not feel grateful
after this j-ervico had no gratitude ln
his heart. These fruits were the product of this district and provlnoe.       ,
Mr. Fiaher chose hia text from a
number of paaaagea from the psalma
appropriate totho harvestacason. Ho
said man is a dependent being, dependent upon God for everything. He
cannot livo oxcept through the strange
process God has given him, and all are
equally dependent The bible Is full
of instances of miraoles porformed by
God to suooor the prophota when in
distress. And of all tho good gifts of
God the beautiful corn is tho most
perly ripened the savages plucked each
stock up by the roots and of course
found only a few tender fibres. Thoy
were very angry with the missionaries
until tola they had been looking on tho
wrong end. There is only ono way to
account for this mysterious product
and its strange preparation for food;
it must have been given specially by
God to man. Wherever it is not found
man is a savage. The gift of the corn
makes man take the place in naturo
God meant for him. It means civilization, the clearing of the plains and
forests and the introduction of commerce, God haB connected tbe bread
quostion with all tho great events uf
the world's history. The family loaf
and the Lord's Day are bound up together. And it is better to starve than
to Bin. And not only that, but we
must comply with the command of
God, or starve. Man must obey or go
without his dinner. The corn is tho
world's true wealth, and yet, we are
within six weeks of starvation evory
year; ou the verge of famine regularly
every year of our lives. When wo recognise the wonderful goodneBs of God
in averting that catastrophe during the
thousands of years of man'a history
our daily bread becomes a sacrament;
a beautiful emblem. Aud what more
striking symbol of Jesus Christ can we
havo than this grain in ita almost unlimited power to assuage our needs?
Christ is the food of the world; He
was broken and bruised and crushed.
And before this grain can bless us it
must dio, and to bo useful to us it muat
be broken, bruised'and crushed.
Fnm Keek Creek.
Mr. Theodore KrugerandMr. Thoi,
Elliott, two well-known residents of
Bock Creek, reached the oity last night
and aro domiciled at the Oriental.
They report increased activity in mining matters In their section of the
country. At the Douglas mine the
shaft is down 88 feet, and a contract
has been given for 100 feet moro at $4
per foot, The rock is if ound to be of
satisfactory quality, and modern machinery, including a ten stamp mill,
haa been ordered from Now York.
The machinery will bo taken to the
mine as soon as winter seti in. Two
shifts of eight men are steadily at
work, and the company also employs
an assayer who carefully examines
every bucketful aa tt comes from the
mine. At Osoyoos Lake, the Wide
West is proving fully aa good as the
Douglas, but it, like many another
good claim in tho district, needs capital to properly develop it. It shows,
probably, the richest rock in the whole
country, the ledge 84 feet in depth
and 12 in width, being well-defined
and easily worked. The ore is of uniform good quality all through the
ledge, it does not run in a streak. At
Ruby, on tho American side, the Arlington has 100 men at work, and is
putting up a 100-stamp mill. The ore
there is not equal to that shown by the
Wide West, but the owners of the
mine have capital to work lt for its full
worth, and consequently it is goiog to
pay, and pay well. Already the money
that is beint' put in circulation by tho
Arlington oompany is making its presence .felt for good. The Black Bear
has 25 men at work and is doing well.
Altogether, Mr. Kruger thinks, in the
Rook Creek distriot the futuro of British Oolumbia as a mineral country is
centered. A great dread stares the
stockmen in the face this season—that
of a possible shortage In the winter
food supply. Owing to the grass fires
and the grasshoppers, the crop wns a
partial failure, and it is feared that the
cattlo will suffer when they come down
for the winter. At present all the
stoek is iu prime condition.—Saturday's Colonist.

expenses of an expedition to bo
sent under diroction of tho secretary
of tho navy to tlie west coast of
Africa, to observe the total eolipso
of tho sun on Decombor 'Jti. His
reported that tho man-of-wnr Ponsit*
cola will bo employed for this expedition, and the preliminary details
have boon arranged by a boani, of
which Ootninodorc John 0. Walker,
chief of tho bureau of navigation)
Oapt. It. L. l_.ytli.an, .supeiintun-
' denfc of tho naval observatory; Prof.
Asaph Hnll, of the naval observatory; antl Prof. Simon Nowcomb,
superintendent of the nautical almanac, are member-. Ono of the navy
officers, familiar with the details says:
"The expedition will be divided into two parties, one of which will be
under the direction of Prof. Joseph
•Bussel, of Washington, and the
other under Prof. Todd, of Amherst.
Tha former is an expert in solar
pb< itography, and will have charge
of 'he corps detailed to obtain photographs of the eclipse. Permission
hat; been obtained from the Portugal ao government for the expedition
to land at St. Paul do Loanda, the
capital of tho Portuguese possessions
on tho west coast of Africa. The
expedition will proceed from that
plaeo inland to Maxima, on the
Ouanza River, whero the two parties
will separato nnd take up stations
near that point, and have all of their
instruments set up before the date
of ihe eclipse. Tho lino of the centre of totality will strike the coast
at ft point about 100 miles south of
St. Paul de Loanda, and pass directly over tho stations. Tliu expedition will not be absent more than
three months."
Elsewhere will l»o found a despatch, clipped from the Victoria
Timgsof Snturdny, ami by that paper credited to its Ottawa correspondent, which states that application has been made to tlio railway
committeo of the Dominion privy
council, on behalf of the O.P.K., to
pnable that company to build a
bridge over the Fraser at tho Mission, with an eighty foot draw, tbe
usual draw being one hundred feet.
The despatch also states tliat a
letter was rend from the provincial
secretary of this province saying
that eighty feet would be sufficient in
the interest of navigation.. AYHotiier
this last statement is ao or uot, it is
to be hoped that the railway committee of the privy council will not
grant the request of tho O.P.R.
This question, it will bo remembered,
camo up last spring for the first
time, when The Columbian drew
public attention to the fact that the
O.P.R. wr.a proceeding to construct
tho bridge in question with a sixty
foot draw, and protested against it.
The Westminster board of trado, as
well as the city council, immediately
took the matter up and scut urgent
protests to Ottawa, and the O.P.R.
sought to compromise by proposing
to the board of trade to put in a
draw of from seventy fco eighty feot
in width. This tho board took into
conuideration, and, after receiving
the opinions of river captains and
pilots, reaffirmed its previous rcsolu-
luti m that the draw should be at
least one hundred feet, and a resolution to that effect was forwarded to
Mr. Abbott and to tho minister of
inaiino at Ottawa. It should bo
mentioned thut tho Victoria and
■ Vancouver boards of trade, and also
the diitrict municipal councils along
the river, followed up tho action of
the Westminster board of trado in
thit matter. Tho provincial legislature, in session nt thu timu, also
pas ei! a roso)ution memorializing
the Dominion authorities to the
saiii-i effbefc. As a result of tlio
prompt and persistent action of the
Wtutitiinstor board of trade and its
alii s, wu tiiid, by rcferenoo to our
Oler, that, on April 20th of thia
yea', the board of trado received n
telegram from Ottawa stating that
the O.P.R. had consonted to make
tho Mission bridgo draw one hundred feet in width, and had given
tiw Dominion government a guarantee to that edeot. Delays followod
in the construction of tho bridge, as
everyone knows—in fact tho work
has been altogether suspended for
some time—and now, whon it is
proposed to resume construction,
the O. P. R., according to the
despatch published elsewhere, has
attempted to open tho question
again by trying to got permission
from the railway committeo of tho
privy council fco build an eighty foot
draw instead of one of a hundred
feet, which it was definitely settled
between all parties, as wo have
shown, should ho the narrowest
draw constructed ou tho bridge in
question. Tho request, which, under
nil the circumstances, has considerable assurance behind it, should
certainly not be granted.

Had Mr, Firth, who died suddenly a weok or two ago, lived but a
short while longer, he would havo
seen the first fruits of his yoars of
unrelaxing labors in the interests of
Greater London, (as opposed to the
selfishness of tho city proper), in
tho gigantic scheme of street improvements which is shortly to be
brought under operation. The Metropolitan Board of Works in its
day did grand and enduring work
for tho improving and beautifying of
London, as tho Thames embankment, Shnffcsbnry avenue, and other
equally fino thoroughfares stand to
witness. But that body fell into
the hands of boodlers, and so had to
bc snuffed out of existence. Then,
and only then, when there was no
other courso open, was London given
home rule, and what mny lie termed
a parliament of its own. Tho county
council is hardly a year old, and it
in tho child of the late Mr. Firth's
years of dreaming and fighting; for
whilst to him is due the credit of
the schemo, the realization of it was
not obtained without hard battling,
nnd sturdy resistance from tho monopolists, tlie guilds, and the thousand and one vested interests which
saw iti self government for London,
a forecast of tho reform which must
before many yoars compel tho city
of London to make restitution to
thoso who have tho misfortune to be
ratepayers in that Greater London,
that "provinco covered with houses,"
outside tho area whosu limits arc
Aldgato, Finabury, Temple Bar, and
London Bridge. The county council has begun well in determining
to widen tho Strand its whole length;
but to do this tho cost will be tremendous. With the exception of a
few streets in the very henrt of the
city, there is probably no place in
London, perhaps in the world, whero
real estate is so valuable as in Fleet
.street aud its continuation, the
Strand. It is tho main artery from
the fashionable West-end to the
city. It is lined hy handsome stores
and hotels and banking houses, and
possesses noarly a dozen large theatres. To widen this thoroughfare
Holywell street and probably three
or four more will have to be wiped
off tho map. It is probable that St.
Clement Danes' Church, and the
monstrosity called a Grilfin, sot up
io mark the site of old Tomplo Bar,
will have to go likewise, and much
immensely valuable properly will
hnvo to be acquired and then demolished. But tho new scheme is
to embrace another main artery connecting the Strand with Holborn, a
street Jong required, but never before hoped for on account of the
cost. We are told through thn
wires that these tiro only tbe beginnings of tlie improvements to be
effected, but if they were tlio end
there' would be immense reason tor
congratulation. Too long has London borne tlie reproach of being a
dirty, dismal and ugly place, without plan or design. The improvements hinted at here, however, will
go a very iong way to remove thin
■stigma, aud whon tho Upvent Garden Market is rendered approachable
by broad streets, ns it will be at no
far distant time, and when tho Duke
of Bedford is made to look after his
property in that vicinity, aud not
permitted to beep all London at a
standstill for his ducal pleasure, then
will the Londoner be able, like Doctor Johnson, to take pride in suggesting a walk not only down Fleet
street but the Strand as well.
SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
A bag of peas infested with weevils was lately noticed to be surprisingly warm, when investigation
showed a temperature outside of 71
degrees and inside of 9G degrees.
Tho difference proved to bB due to
heat developed through the work of
the weevils.
There are now seven agricultural
laboratories in Belgium where gratuitous analyses of manures and
feeding stuffs aro made. In addition, information is freely furnished
to farmers upon the best method of
using the .manures and Hooding stuffs,
and upon other questions in agricultural science.
Gpss remarked that tho largest
animal known is tho rorqual, about
100 feet long; the smallest is the
twilight monad, whoso dimensions
are tho la,000fch of an inch. The
middle term is one-third of an inch,
so that the common house-fly may
bo considered as an animal of tho
medium size in the creation.
Vitality op Germs.—In the lal j
oratory of tho German Imperial
Health Department, Dr. L, Heim
has found tliat cholera bacilli may
survive in milk from two or threo
to six days; in sweet butter, for n
montli; but in cheese curds, scarcely a day. The bacilli of typhoid
fever were still visiblo in milk after
thirty-fivo days; in butter thoy
lived threo weeks; and in whey
nnd natural cheeso, only threo days.
Milk containing the bacilli of consumption wns still capable of conveying infection after ten days;
butter, for four weeks; and whey
and cheeso, for two woeks.
Wasted Wealth.—The most important unused produot of Africa is
declared to be the fibre of the banana. This is capable of being divided into threads of silky fineness,
and extends tho entiro length of the
branchless plant. In Central America the fibre with no preparation
oxcept drying, is used for shoestrings, and for cords and ropes for
various purposes. So vast is the
supply of excellent material 'now
wasted in tho bannna plantations of
the world, that the proper utilization of this fibre is asserted by a
German authority to be certain to
influence the value of cotton, hemp,
flax, and all similar plants.

JOHN SMITH,,CLERK1
A Modern Fablo, the Moral'"of
Whioh la Left to the Reader."
Onco thoro waa a man. Eo was a clerk
in a bank at forty-fivo dollars a month. His
niLtiio was John Smith. At a directors'
mcotinf?; ono day, after tho discounts had
been passed upon and tho portly directors
woro laboriously Rotttn-r up to go, tho president, who had tho ablest and most expansive vest of auy of them, stopped them. .. *
'By the way," ho remarked, "I havo a
noto from John Smith, one of our young
mon, you know—somo of you know him—hut
I RuesB I must have lost it. Any how, he
wants hia salary raised. Says tbe business
of the bank is four times what it used to ho
nnd his work has Increased accordingly
Buys with increaso in tho nmount of monoy
bundled conies increaso in tho strain on his
integrity. Seems to think ho ought to bo
paid for not robbing us. Beside, he saya ho
can scarcely keep his family on his salary.
' suppose I can answer it without calling
another board  mooting," he concluded,
facetiously.     ■>■■ ■■■■■■•'■.■\r$$x.<ffigyy3&.\
"Toll him ho oughtn't to have. eucb a big
family," suggested ono. ■*,jSi?«-?v ^r-fj*****^.
. "Quoto tbo law against embezzlement to
him," snld another, and so on, as they buttoned their overcoats and went out about
thoir businesa. .•.(?*»■    •■.»-■
By and by John Smith got a noto liko
JthlB, signed by the presidont and written
on i he noto paper of tho bank, bearing the
' m ]v.,.-ing array of directors' names in neat
engraving at tho head of it:
"Mit John Smm-Dear Sir: In answer to
fours of even date, I am instructed by tho
Gourd of directors to say that thoy ean not
if-reo wilh your viow of tho case. It Is truo
ami your work has largely Increased with
the growth of the bank under its present sue*
wa- inl management. But it is no moro than
you uro ablo to do, and no moro thun we can
Ind othors todofortho salary wo now pay
-ou, Tho othor phase of tbo mattor you pro*
,c.;;, ihutwoBbouia pay you lor tbo moral
voar and tear incident to resisting temptation
.o Bt'ial, ns woll ob for tho physical and menial work you do, has no weight. Our rotations,
howovor ploasimt personally, aro puraly tt
■jtiLsinoss affair on both Bides. Wo pay you so
touch monoy for so much work. Your honesty
is -..resumed. If you should prove dishonest
vould discharge you, and tho law would
■e...iyouto prison.
"With your family affairs we bave nothing
to do, but I may suggest to you that careful
icotiomy in small household expenditures will
'"osutt ln an annual snv.ng which will, perhaps,
lurprlse you. Without referring especially to
Vou—for I nover endeavored to pry into your
irlvato affairs, nor inquired how you lived—I
'-nay say that, in my opinion, the prevailing
pendency of young peoplo nowadays li to
tve too high, instead ot being careful to lay
up something for a rainy day.
"Yours truly, etc."
i Tho directors hadn't boen in session long
,he noxt day when John Smith openod the
loor, handed In a Blip of papor, and walked
back to his desk. Thoro was silence for a
jiiuuto, then a murmur, then tho clerks
outsido hoard a clatter ot moving chnu-s iu
the board-room, and thon tho door opened
ind two or threo voices called "Smith I"
"In a moment," answered Smith, cheer-
ully, laying a blotter between the leaves of
ilio book ho had been writing In, and carefully tucking tho pea behind bis oar, as
chough ho wero making hiB toilet.
"What do'you moan by this?" they de-
mauded when ho appeared in the directors1
room. "Tolling us thoro is only $9,647.80 of
hvaliable cash, and suggesting that wo got
-some for the counter." ■ ■-
It's bo," responded Smith, "and I
■bought you ought to know it boforo the
noucy is all checked out The bank
oughtn't to havo to closo its doors In tho
middle of tho day." *■ -■.".
"But according to your statement of yes-
xrday and your showing of to-day's business thoro ought to bo $™>.),(M& Whore Is
too quarter of a million! Woworojuatdls*
jjusslngnu investment for iti" »*■■*••
; "I'vo invested it myself," responded
Smith, coolly, "In a safo place—8250,000 of It.
I'ho othor twenty conts I took for street-car
iionuy. I took a quartor of a million awav
.vith mo last ovening."
"You what!"
"I stolo it, in plain English. When I .got
his 1-esponEO to my noto to tho president I
-but really I must renew my suggestion
ibout tho advisability of gotting somo cash
iu tlio counter. You aro very short, and
•oil ought to attend to It at once." -    -.
Two of tho directors draw thoir checks on
Uioi* bmiki- and sont them out, although
.ho tilguutui'cs were vory shaky; and thon.
jiiito at hin case, Sir, Smith loaned up
i#uiust tho carved nuuitcl-plcco, read the
ii'ct-idout's nolo refusing hia request for
.in increase and wont on: ,*™_ i-
"V/hon I tfot this noto it net mo to thinking whothor, oa our rotations woro a purely
punlnOBi affair,1 couldn't do bettor than go
ni as I had been doing. Thero woro 1250,*
•WO iii convenient shape that I could got my
mnds on. I might havo skipped to Canada
kith 1^ but I don't liko tho cllmato. I took
■.lie money away with me and concealed
iii" pausing for a moment ond smiling
'inwii in tlielr eager faces, "ln a place
known only to mysolf.  I shall givo myself
II \ and as our relations, in tho language of
lie president, havo been 'personally
ilcasaiit,' I will save you tho oxponso of a
.al by pleading guilty. Tho maximum
■jci'ienco for my offense, under tho laws of
Stuto, Is ton yoars ln the penitentiary.
[kVlth the commutation off for good bohavlor,
twill bo about eight and a half years. It
vill bo dull, but I shall not be idlo. Ihavo
icvorhad lolauro to cultivate tho graces of
,.! iinlud, I havo a tasto for music. I will
ftu!: ivute lt. I will learn a modorn lauguago
!>r two. I am thirty-one yoars old now.
Whon I havo served my term and am clear
A tho law, I will como out of prison thirty
nino yoars old, with a cultivated mind and
icomfovtablo fortune of 12.0,000 awaiting
.no. • I can afford to go away, to travel In
■foreign countrlos and oujoy life. Of courBC
i loso tho intorest on my $350,000 whilo I out

ao naked and save all my salary, I wouldn't
liavo one-lift loth as much at tho ago of
Milrty-nlnb) On the wholo, I think I have
Jnudo a good speculation. Don't you!" ■
Tho opinions of tho directors woro not
ry coherent just at this moment, Thoy
"lo various appeals to him, on tho con-
;juco thoy had had In him, on tho good
'ii..-no ho boro, on tho dishonor ho would in-
bur, oto., but ho responded tbat all those
hit'• not helped him to an Increase In salary,
mid relentlessly quoted tho language of the
spiuuldont's note to him, that "their relations woro purely a businoss uffalr on both
bIuom." Finally ho said: ■•*•*■*<
"Our rotations havo boon personally
pleasant, and I havo no unconiiuotabledo-
siro to apoud the next eight and a half yours
In jail. I will mako you a proposition. 11
you will sign a bond not to prosecute me.
und publish in tho daily papors a Botol
resolutions setting forth that whereas your
valued and trusted omployo, Johu Smith,
by the receipt of d legacy from a deceased
relative, has been relieved of tho necessity
of further sorvico, resolved, that you part
with him with oxtrome regret, etc.—if you
do this, I will bring back $125,000 and content myself with the other $125,000. Tho intorest will mako up a good part of tho loss
to mo."
It was hard to givo up $125,000 and hitch
it to a sot of resolutions complimenting the
thief, but it was a choice between getting
half tho loaf or nothing. Waa thoBatlafao-
tion of sending him to prison for eight und
ahtitr years worth $15,000 a yoar to them!
Thoy figured on It and agreed tbat It wasn't;
Thoy accepted his proposition, drew up the
bond and signed lt.
"You can got tho resolutions In shapo by
to-morrow," ho said, "and have thom ready
when I bring tho monoy. It would scarce
Iy bo dolicnto for mo to bo present when
they aro adopted."
"Couldn't yon bring It to-day, Mr.
Smith]" asked tho president, In a porspini-
tlon.
"Np, I hayon't timo to go aftor it. Thu
work at my desk always koepa mo busy un
til tlio hour for closing tho bank. You will
hnvo to trust mo till to-morrow, and an by
signing this bond you havo committed your-
boIvcb to tho compounding of a felony, I
guess 1 can trust you—ovon us a purely
business affair."
They wero all on hand oarly next day.
Smith, the cashier, said (not without some
aurprlso at hearing the president inquire
for him as "Mr." Smith), had gone out to
got his lunch. Ho was askod for half a
dozon times before he camo. wrcry tow
minutes the door of the directors' room
would open, a perspiring faco would bo
thrust out aud Smith would bo Inquired for.
Then tho faco would bo withdrawn and tho
directors would fall to discussing whether,
after all, Sraitu hadn't takon their bond and
given them tho Blip. Attbostrokoof twelve
tho door opened, and Smith walked in. lie
pieked up tha resolutions, road them with
approval, and with a "Thank you, gent lo-
men; this is handsome," ho handed a pack-
ago to tho president, saying: j
"Hero's your monoy." . ,..^j
Than he took hia former stand by the
mantbUptace, and watched thoir eager faces
while thoy bent over to count It. A hundred
crisp§1,000 bills—then $-35,000, some of it in
smaller denominations—$25,000 moro yet—
und then, to their amazement, another 100
000 bills. >■•■*■•
"Why, it's all hero—you've brought it
back—"
"1 never meant to steal It," said Mr.
Smith, coolly. "1 mado you believo I did
morely to convinco you that you woro conducting your bank on tho wrong principle,
lu keeping a man on a starvation salary
with t\ fortuno within his grasp. I wanted
to mnko you understand that there is spine'
thing moro in tho relations between n ban i
and its trusted employes than cold btiBlhoai

I um roady tp turn over my booka na stum
ng you namo my successor. Ho will find
them all right.  Good-day."
Ilo walked back to his desk. Pretty soon
they called him iu again, and tho president
made a littlo speech. Ho said tho lesson
had been an unpleasant ono, but they were
disponed to tnko It in tho spirit in which It
wns given. Perhaps ho was right. They
hud uu desire to punish hiin, but—horo he
hesitated and stammered a littlo-thoy woro
also unwilling, that is to say, they had no
desiro to keep a financier of his capacity in
the humble placo In wliich ho had hitherto
been employed. Therefore, one or tliolr
number, Mr. Wilkins, who waa lho agent
of an insuranco company, at ti salary of
four thousand dollars a year, had decided
to resign that position, and would havo Mr,
Smith appointed his successor. Meanwhile,
Mr. Smith could tako a vacation of two
weeks.—Pittsburgh Times.
LIBERAL LANDLORDS.
Why tlio Now Vork IIuusch or thu  At-lm-s
Aro Novor Vacant.
Thoro ia an outcry in Fifth avenue against
tho Aators, becauso thoy aro turning lho
houses opposito thoir own residences into
stores; but, writes a correspondent to tlio
Indianapolis Journal, if tho Asters decide
that thoy can stand it to look from their
parlor windows right aoroaa Uio street into
tradesmen's ahopa, 1 supposo their fashionable neighbors cau not prevent it. Anyhow, tho Astors ure not only tho biggest,
but about lho best, landlords in town.
Tholr estato includes u vast number pf onco
fashionable houses which havo boon converted into boarding establishments, nud
aro slowly luting altered into stores. These
stand out prominently und catch the cyo
of tho stranger nt onco. The iron fonco
hi front of litem always looks newly painted,
thoguto swings ensily, tho brick or brown
stouo wall sooms to havo been erected only
yesterday, nnd the doors are massive "nd
highly polished. Often tlto hoIgTiboving
houses are shabby-genteel and wear ud uir
of apology. Tho samo contrast thnt exists
botweon them and tho Astor houses
on the exterior is to bo found on
the inside. Many careless tennnts
havo played havoc with tho onco beautiful interiors of many of theso houses- and
tho owners havo beon less willing toiiioko
repairs now than when thoy themselves occupied them. Tho Astors, however, havo
ilcadlly refused to rent to tennnts who
could not bring tho best references, and
they hnvo kopt thoir houses in lho best possiblo condition. A lady who occupies eno
snld to nto: " Tho Astors aro tlio model laud-
lords of tho city, and havo that reputation
among all classes of tenants. They are
never harsh in regard to payments of tha
rent, but, on ttio contrary, nro always ready
to mako things easy for a tenant who proves
unfortunate The only thing thoy insist
upon is that tho tenant shall bo cleanly and
prompt lu reporting any injury to tha
hotfao. Instead of delaying in making repairs, thoy are only loo atfxlou's to bo informed of tho necessity for thom. No lm*
provomontR desired by a tenant aro loo
costly for them, and tbey scorn lo tako groat
prido in milking tholr houses us comfortable as can bo. When I first
moved Into this houso I noticed some
things that I thought I would liko lo
havo changed. 1 hesitated about asking,
though, because thoy had juut lind tho
house overhauled from top to bottom. I
wasn't given tlto chance. Tho first timo
their ugont camo around to collect tlio
rent ho wanted to know whether any tiling
was desired* and tho vory next dny the
workmen wero horo. Tho second year of
my stay I wanted somo alteration*' made
lo suit my lodgers, and had not tho Bllght-
ost difficulty In obtaining thom, although
they coF-t moro limn a wholo year's rent of
lho houso. That wna lho moro strange, too,
boeauso they did not add to tho value of tho
houso nt all. Tho same spirit shown by
lho Aators in regard to thoso houses Is truo
of all thoir property. Ihavo boon told by
their agonts that thoir proporty novor lies
idle, boeauso of tho groat demand for
houaoa owned by thom. Tho agents like it,
too, hecnuso thoy havo uo difficulty with
tonnulD who nro so well treated. A houso
holouging to tho Astors will find a tenant
when udjoinlng houses uro advertised nta
much lower rout. I know that 1 would
not glvo up this house for uny ono on tho
bloek for hnlf tho rent I am now paying.
If I woro to movo out to-dny, thoro would
bo half a dozen applicants for tho house
to-morrow. So, you noo, it pays a landlord to bo liborul."

WHOLESALE
FRONT STREET,
New Westminster, Brit. Col.
Bryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came to Westminsfcr 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.

A Good Clean-up.
Mr. Wm. Tiotjou haa received information regarding tho laat wash-up
of tho Lillooet Hydraulic Mining Co.
The clean-up took place on October
1st, aud dust tu tho value of §500 waa
tho result of throe week's work. Thia
is considered moat encouraging, and
the members oftho company have no
doubt as to tho great valuo of their
claim. Tlio water supply, owing to
the great drought during tho paat fow
months, is more than 50 per cont short
of the average, which haa had tho effect of confining I-10 company's operations within narrower Jiiuilu than wus
intended; Wurk will bo maintained
for another mouth when thu claim will
bo shut down for tbo winter. With
tho spring freshot active operations
will be resumed on a much larger scnlo

Horn on Front atreet, yesterdny, and
requested a loan of two bits; tho loan
was not advanced and Lim gavo Horn
a hit iu the eye nnd a severe kick in
tho Vest, winch brought Horn down
ou his buck, howling. Ou the approach of Officer Terhune, Lim took to
hia heels and wub only captured after
a hot chnso of hnlf-n-milc. Lim
sent down to his friend Loo Coy to
come and defend him, but Coy sent

against the defendant, hia hnuur sentenced Lim hi two montha' imprisonment with hard labor.
The Ashcrott Full*.
Mr. W. H. Ladner, M.P.P., was in
the city to-day nud gave nu enthusiastic nccount of tho fair lately hold nt
Ashcroft, nud which ho ntteuded. Ho
saya thb cattle und horso exhibits wero
very fair indeed, and hetfcoi* than wus
to be expected. The display nf pota*
toed wu3 superior to anything ho ever
saw, and tho mot exhibits generally
were far above the average. Tho fruit
display though small was very fino,
nnd.garden vegetables woro excellent
in every way. Tho wheat exhibits,
Mr. Ladner aays, were superior to
those shown ut tho provincial exhibition in this city, and he thinks the interior farmers would do well in future
to pny more attention to the provincial fair. The Ashcroft people allowed
i*reat enterprise in connection with
thoir exhibition, and tho outcome of
the event waa aatiafactory to all who
took part in ita success. The noxt exhibition will bo held at Kamloops.
MII1II7 Insane.
On Saturday night, n man named
Campboll knocked ut the door of the

by Rov. Mr. Scouler, The stranger
began tin incoherent harangue about
things in general and finished up by
accusing tho reverend gentleman of
having, in company with two other
well known citizons, defrauded him
outof §10. Ho demanded satisfaction
and said he wim quite prepared to go
to law about it. A police officer wna
sent for, and the law, iu Uui person of
Officer Smith, loomed up majestically
and invited tho crnzy citizen to lake a
wnlk to tho station. At tho police
oflico Campbell paid he worked at the
aaw mill nnd had hits uf rich relatives
iu tho old country. Ho could not talk
two minutes on one subject and gave
overy evidence of mild insanity. Ho
was allowed to go, as ho assured the
officers ho worked regularly nt tbo

Aldermen Cnlbick, Ewon, Reid and

statement showing tho expenditure on
tho park and buildings up to dnte hud
not beon prepared, and a numbor of
tho committeo objected to going into
tho subject until tho material tu wurk
un was at hnnd. Aid. Cunningham
estimated that tho expenditure up to
dato amounted to about $21,000. Ho
nUo urged thnt tho work bo fully com*
pleted uo mattor whore the monoy
came from. Aid. Calbick wns in favor
of having thu lower pnrt of the grounds

obtain another loan in order to do so.
Ho wanted the wholo work to ho undor
wny beforo tho present council retired,
which would bo necessnry to ensure the
success of tho next provincial exhibition. Alderman Reid thought the
athletic grounds should bo enlarged,
aa nt present they aro n littlo smaller

taken until tho financial statement had
boen laid boforo tho committeo, nothing cuuld bo done until then. Ho waa
uf Ihe opinion $5,000 inuro would ho

Aid. Reid waa ih favor nf proceeding
immediately with tho completion of
the work and ho was sure tho whole
eity wuuld heartily support tho action
uf tho committee. Aid. Ewon supported Aid. Keary'h objection to immediate action being taken, nud on
their advice tho committee adjourned
to nwnit tho presentation of lhe linmi

CHANNEL IMPROVEMENTS.
What lias Already ltcen Acconipllihcd at
the Diver's Mouth anil What Is
Expected tube Done.
From Mr. Goo. Turner, C.E., it is
learned that tho channel improvements
at the mouth of the rivor tire boing
actively prosecuted nt present by the
contractor, Mr. T. F. Sinclair. Somo
4,000 foot nf mattresses nre to bo lnid
down thia yenr, and thoso nro now
being made on the rivor bank a ahort
distance below Ewen's cannery. Sev*
era! hundred tons of rock have been
quarried on Pitt lake and laid down at
the mouth of tho river, to be used in
sinking nud anchoring tho mattresses
whon thoy nro ready. Bush mattresses, the snrno as employed heretofore,
will bo used this year. A recent survey of tho channel has shown that n
steady improvement is in progress,
nnd the rcsulti already obtained hold
out very encouraging prospects for the
future. When the improvements wero
commenced n few years ago thero wera
only 5 feot uf water, nt low tide, ovor
tho bar, to-dny there is 15 feet nnd it
is expected that by the middle of next
summer the shallowest water will bo
20 feet at low tido. Tho channel is
now 1000 root wide across the bar, nnd
i.*i i.till widening. From theae indisputable facts it can readily bo soen
that tlio method of improving tho channel, introduced by Mr. F. C. Gamble,
the government engineer, is a complote
Bucceas. Eight thousand feet of mat*
treanea havo been hid down ainco tho
channel improvements were commenced, nud when tho present efcnaon'a
operations nro complote the total number of mattresses put down will bo a
trifle over 12,000 feet.
The Alnshnn Company.
An officer of the Richard Rush In*
formed n Seattlo Press reporter that
tho scaling grounds will be a Bource of
troublo so long aa tho Alaska Commercial Co. is allowed to control the seal
interest. Tho officer said tho Alaska
Commercial Compnny is purely a British institution, with oue or two American stockholders. The compnny
claims tho right to nil the seals in tho
northern waters, and n government
buat is kopt cruising nbout to keep
private boats out of tho company's
way. The six boats seized by the
Rush for boing engaged in sealing
during the past sensou all chimed tu
bo British vesaeh, but tho officers of
tho Rush are of the settled opinion
that all nf lho vessels referred to are
American boats nnd owned by Amort*
oauB, but chartered and outfitted in
Viotoria becauso it coat] leoa thoro,
nnd then by flying the British (lag
they might bo able to better evade
tho law. Possibly the schooner Black
Diamond maybe n British vessel, but
even thin is doubted, lt wns stitcd
that one of the privatoeriug scalers,
an American vessel, got out of the
wny with 3000 skins, bnt sho got nut
of tho way before tho Rush appenred
uu thu grounds. This faot seems to
have given a groat, donl of secret satis*
faction to almost everyone in the upper country, none of whom particularly like- tho Commercial Company.
Thero is a desire nmong the peoplo of
Ounalaaka, aa woll ns of Sitka, that
(he monopoly uf tho seal catch bo taken
from the Commercial Company and
that lhe grounds be thrown opon to
everybody. Thoro ia uo immediate
danger uf sonls running out, no matter
how mnny go to catch them, na there
nre only two or throo months in tho
year when sealing enn bo engaged in,
on nccount of rough woathor. If tho
rit"ht to onto!] seals was extended to
Amoriunns only, t!io price uf prepared
skins would bu lowcrocl lo a ronsouable
figure. As it now is, nil tho Commercial Cr-mpnny's skins arc sont to Europe
to bo tanned nnd duty ia added each
vay, which swells the cont to the final
purchaBor. It is quite ccrtnin that if
lho skins wero kept iu the United
tStat-js, it wuuld pny uu enterprising
man to build nud operate n sonl skin
tannery und preparing establishment
on the coast.
Unpleasant Practice-
Parties just returned from Nanaimo
Lako state that some persons who hnd
been hunting near tho uppor ond of
tho lake hnd hung the carcasses of
throe deer on tho trees. Thoy wero
now in nn advanced stago of decomposition, and tho stench of tho neighborhood waa simply unbearable. No
doubt the hunters had hung thom thoro
with the intention of returning at onco
and taking them away, but for some
rcnaon failed to do so. It makes it
very unpleasant for hunters and fishermen to go in that neighborhood,
Hnd tho carcasses been left on tho
ground, then othor animals or insects
would soon havo devoured thom,
leaving nothing but the bones to blench
in tho sun.-—free Press.

ONCE AGAIN
The Railway Bonne By-Law is £
dorsed by the People by a
Large Majority.
The Solid Stand by Enthusiastic
Citizens Vote Down the
Opposition.
A Sturdy Fight Against the Bylaw
but Progress Once More
Asserts Itself.
The great railway bonus by-law waB
before the ratepayers of Westminster
again to-day, nnd again the ratepayers
elected to voto for the city's beBt Interests and for its advancement and
prosperity. A email but determined
opposition, thoroughly organized,
worked like Trojans for the defeat of
the by-law, but their labors were in
vain. Tho perfection of the organization of tho opposition was not realized
until to-dny, when it was found that
tho eity had boon thoroughly can-
vassed and an accurate estimuto of tho
■volu against tho by-law tnken. Trusting to the npnthctc manner in which
tho friends of Ihe bill scorned to regard its piasage, tho opposition hoped
to win by concealing their hand nnd
protesting indifference. But the crafty
schemo fnilcd, well laid though it
was. Ou Friday Inst a quiet meeting
of the friends of the by-law was hold,
whioh resulted in a cnuvass of tho city
on Saturday, Tho canvass was satisfactory in every wny, although It was
found thnt mnny votes had boon
pledged to the opposition through a
misrepresentation of fnets.
Voting commenced early after tho
polls opened this morning, but at no
time during the dny oould it bo called
lively. As will be seen by the annexed returns thu vote wna not nearly
bo large aB was expected, the result of
want of organization on the part of
tho friends of tho by-law, who might
have largely increased the mujority
hud thoy entered on a thorough canvass of the city. It is snfe to say thnt
not one opposition vote remained unpolled, The neighborhood of tho
Colonial hotel was tho battle ground
fur''injunctors" nnd railway suppor-
tora, and many amusing wordy arguments wore hoard, nil of whioh, howover, resulted lu tho complote nnd
utter route of the opposition. Carriages wero employed by both sides to
convey votors to the polls, ond the
streets all dny long were quito animated in appearance. Everything
passed off quietly, barring tho excited
arguments. At 5 o'clock tho city hall
began to fill with voters and citizens
generally, nnd by the timo the returns
were all in tho building was packed.
The success of the by-law, when announced by the returning oflicer, wni
