Hu previously boarded at tho house for
a short time, and waa known to the

them ia not fully known. Baronows
in his confession stated ho went to the
house, asked Mrs. Putlavish for something to eat, whieh she refused and or*
dered him leave, at tlie samo time
striking htm with a poker. Thia enraged him and lie struck her with a
rock, killing her. Ho afterwards took
money from a trunk and set fire to the
houso. As ho waa leaving Miss Neil
ran Into the houso and said Bho would

down and her body with that of the
other woman was consumed in the
but aing building. On the evening of
tho murder Baronows made some purchases at a store and Bhowed considerable mouey when paying for the articles. Thia caused suspicion, as he

savo his lifo. Ho waa 27 yeara of age,
born in Salieia, Austria, and came to

Camp 20, John F. Biggs, nnd who was
seniur guardian of the camp and consequently tho head centre of tho infernal secret executive that ordered Dr.
Cronin's murder. Tho othor man,
whoso namo is at proseut unknown,
was connected with Coughlin, Sullivan, Burke and others in executing
the order. Tho latter ivaB not indicted with tho livo mou now on trial,

proven correct he will save his neck.
Tho former knows nothin*,' of tho
murder boyoid the ordor of the Inner
Ci role of'the Camp and for the information, nnd if it proves reliable, tho
htato's attorney will ask a nolle on his
behatt jest before the caso ia finally

for he is a much younger man, but ho
has made n reputation already as a
bravo and thoroughly competent com-
mnnder. Tho two captains express
their opinion on the race very freely.

FATHER  MCKADDEN's TRIAL.
Dublin, Oct. 22. —Tbe man Cole,
the first of tho prisoners tried at Maryborough for the killing of Inspector
Martin, has been found by the jury to
be guilty of manslaughter. Father
McFsidden and tho other accused, will
probably receive tho same verdict.
Sentence haa been reserved. Mr.
MoDermott, the counsel for the defence, has raised a number of points
against the case: "Choice of a jury;"
"tho charge of the court," and "the

THE OCCUPATION OF  TUNIS.
Paris, Oct 21.- In a letter published
in L'E_taf_ttt today, M. Jules Ferry
says tbat the occupation of Tunis by
tho Frenoh was expeoted by the English "government after England's forces
had occupied Cyprus and that suoh action was also foreseen by Italy. M.
Ferry also says that while he was in
oflice he made no engagement with
Prime Minister Crispi, of Italy, concerning Tunis. Continuing, he says
that iu July, 1880, the Italian covern-
moist communicated with M. De Frey-
ctnet, then promier of France, with regard to the compensation to be made
for the occupation of Tunis. The communication, howover, produced no re.
suit, President Carnot is making arrangement, for a visit to Algiers.
Strainers to Re Withdrawn.
The Times ha. it on good authority
that a possibility oxista of the stoamers
running between this province and
China and Japan, being temporarily
withdrawn. At least it looks that
way. Roport states, aud has done so
for somo days, thst an order was issued a short time ago to agents instructing them to book no passengers
for China and Japan and to tako no
freight for those destinations aftor the
arrival ot the Port Fairy which is due
at Vancouver the 22nd of November.
This is a disquieting rumor and as a
consequonco a great deal of speculation is going on among the company's
employees, who know of the proposal;
aa to the cause, different reasons are
suggested. A plausible one is as follows: The parties who own the present
line of steamers on tho route, Sir Wm.
Pearce and others, are connected with
one of tho great shipbuilding firms of
Glasgow. This firm oxpeeted to receive the contract for the now steamers
which was let a few day. ago, and failing to do so, consider that the C. P.
R. Oo. has broken faith with them.
They have therefore notified tho railway oosnpany of their determination
to terminate the oontract of the trans-
Pacifio stoamers, which will naturally
produce a groat deal of inconvenience
to the lattor. The steamers, being an
inferior class, have not been doing the
business reoently that they did in
starting out on this route, and in this
another reason is furnished for the desire of the owners to vitiate tho contract. Whether tbo supposition, band
on the order issued from headquarters,
is correct or not remains to be seen.

On Sunday lust, Wm. C. Maohin, a
fourteen-year-old Victorian, had a
battle with a big panther oa the farm
of Capt. Cogan, Metchosin, winch ho
is not likely to soon forget, although
he came off victorious. He w ;s out
shouting, armed with a common muz*
zle-lcading shot gun, when hia dog
discovered au immense panther up a
tree.' The boy blazed away, hs gun
being only loaded for small birds, the
shot having tho effeot of enrag- tig the
panther which answered with a fierce,
howling scream of rage. Maohin at
once reloaded, this time putting in
a heavier chargo, and fired. The panther, wounded, dropped to the ground,
and the boy climbed a tree, taking
good care to retain possession of hia
gun. Again he "loaded up," putting
in threo fingers of powder and a proportionately heavy charge of allot. lie
fired the third time and saw the panther fall just as the recoil of tho gun
knocked him from his perch in the
tree. Not waiting to see if his big
game waa dead he took to his hoels,
nor did he atop until Oapt, Cogan'a
home waa reached. The captain ot
once went back with him to the scene
of the encounter, where thoy found
the big cat stiff in death. It measured 8 feet 2k inches in length, and

They hnvo had n Pigott forgery
caso in tho state campaign in Ohio,

a ballot-box job. Tlie editor, Mr.
Halstead, hud all tho documents

' the treacherous rascal, held his peace
until he got Mr, Hrilst. *iul committed "up to his chin," thun ho dropped on him with proof positive that
tho signature was like Pigott's, a
traced forgery. Then Campbell
came out with a genuine letter written to him last year by n prominent
Republican, Mr. Topp, asking him
to join in a fraud in selling gravel
to the corporation of Cincinnati,
The unfortunate Halstead had to
withdraw the charge against Camp
bell, and in order to break that
against Topp tried to mako out that
Topp was insane when he wrote the
gravel letter. *-But," retorted the
wicked Campbell, "if lie was insane
why did you at that very time appoint him chairman of tho Republican executive committee 1" This
was « hard question to answer,
Topp lias resigned, and the Republicans are somewhat demoralized.
Certain newspapers in the province hnvo endeavored to put the
worst construction possible on the
provincial secretary's letter re the
Mission bridge draw, with the result
that the impression gained currency
that the provincial secretary had
voluntarily "interfered" in the matter, a • one paper put it, nnd had
gone i ut of his way to advise the
fed*™™-. 1 government that nn 80-foot
draw would be of sufficient width,
In a iormer article we cast doubt
upou .ho statement that tho provincial si crctary had so done; and, ns
was s io wn by the correspondence
submitted at the city council Monday night, the matter stands quite
diffort ntiy than interested parties
would have it. From tho corres*
pondo ico in question, it appears
that Hr. H. Abbott, general superintendent of tho Pacific division of
the G. P. B., submitted to the provincial secretary a voluminous statement if the case nn behalf of the
railway corporation, together with
Opinions by Oapt, John Irving and
" " Rithet, of  tho  C. P. K Co.,
R, P.
urging that an 80-foot draw was
sufficient, antl calling fur ti reply
from the provincial secretary on behalf of the government. Tho arguments produced by Mr. Abbott, supported by testimony from the officers
of the C. P. N. Co. named abovo,
induced the provincial secretary to
mako the following reply to Mr.
Abbott (wo give the moro important paragraphs)^ "So far as the
government cnu judge, the compromise offered hy your company,
viz., an 80-foofc drnw, provided with
a sufficient pile lead, would serve
the public interests as woll, if not
better than, a draw of one hundred
feet, * * * Under all the circumstances there doos not appear to bo
any valid reason why the government should interpose nny objection
to the proposed compromise as to
the width of the draw or to its location, provided tho suggestion of Captain Irving be adopted." Captain
! Irving's suggestion, it might be
mentioned wns as to the particular
location of the draw, and that pile
leads with an opouing of 125 feet
should bo built in connection with
an 80-foot draw, which he (Captain
Irving) considered would be quite
equal to a spun of 100 foet without
pile lead., Tho provincial secretary's reply wuh, of course, made use
of by t'm O. P. it. Oo. beforo tho

argum.i hts submitted in favor cf an

the shape of sundry massacres and
bastinadoing?, At such times tho
Conservatives ask piteously how can
wo help it; for, if wo interfere, Russia will stop in us well and perhaps
endanger India. This was the cry
when the IJashi-.IUzouks deluged
eastern Europe with Christian blood,
aud Mr. Gladstone, to hia everlasting honor, roused nil England to
righteous indignation, until the
prime minister, Mr. Disraeli, was
forced to listen to tho cry of horror
that went up ut the atrocities which
were being perpetrated. Once more
the telegraph tells us that the Eastern question is looming up, and the
European powers are likely to have
troublo on their hands. It is tho
old story, the Turk is again oppressing the smnll nationalities, and making things vory lively for tho unfortunate Christians of eastern
Europo, and again tho only great
power ready to bring tho Mussulman to tusk is Russia. OE course
Russia has her own axo to grind,
but why might not England act in
concert with thnt power in the great
work of freeing the smnll Christian
nationalities from tbo hateful yoke
of Ottoman government. Surely,
this is not impossible, but the Conservative party in England appears
to havo so thorough a hatred of
Russia thnt its leaders will not mako
uny attempt to arrive at a proper
understanding with that power. If
it is possiblo to get rid of the Turk,
Europe would bo tho bettor for his
expulsion, Long ago, Mr. Gladstone suggested his romovnl "bag
snd baggage," and his whole policy
whon in oflico was towards giving
the Christian populations freedom.
In this endeavor, however, he was
foiled by tho treaty obligations entered into by other ministers who
preceded him, more especially Lords
Salisbury and BeaconsUeld, and thus
it comes about that in eastern
Europe to-day the Christians aro
almost as much ns ever at the mercy
of tho Turk. Just at the present
time the Turk is endeavoring to obtain admission to the tripe allianco,
but owing to his corrupt and bankrupt state it seems doubtful if he
could fulfil the conditions required
by military powers like Austria,
Germany and Italy. He has a bad
habit of breaking promises and getting his friends into trouble, nnd so
it is not surprising that helms been informed that ho had better look forn
rapprochement with England, as
that country's policy is practically
thnt of tho tripe alliance. Of course,
this is merely a polite wny of telling
the Turk neither Austria, Germany
nor Italy desiro to go bail for his
good behavior, but that Lord Salisbury many be found open to nn alliance. Neither is this unlikely, for
the English primo minister must
very much wish to divert, attention
from hia Irish policy, and tho Eastern question is quite a likely bait.
.Fo are in doubt, howover, whether
Lord Salisbury will have the courage
to repeat the Jingoism and the
hazardous chicanery which resulted
iu tho overwhelming defeat of Boa*
consfield in 1880. Howover that
may be, whilst England is determined to ailow no Russian interference
with India, she is equally unlikely
to spend her treasure and the precious lives of her sons for tho purpose
of bolstering up the rotten government of the sultan.

such talk is veritable bosh from beginning

"You must understand first that ventriloquism is simply a vocal illusion. I havo

" Why, it is ns ensy us rolling off a log to
bo n ventriloquist, if you will only havo tho
patience to practico. Did anybody ovor become a scientist or philosopher in a wook, a
month or year? Of course not. It takes
some years of practico to becomo proficient

Young D.i'-mi-'h D'-ui-Stei*.
A certain uian.who was lately wed, dwelt
in tho country, fur from tho noise of any
town. It -Jhanced one night that his wife
fell sick, nmi, being ignorant of the ways nf
wonum folk, ho mounted his cart-horse uud
galloped exceedingly fast toward tho town
iu search of a skillful leech.
On thu road ho met a gaunt and withered
hag, who asked him:
"Whither so fast, good man 1"
"To get u leech for my wife who is sick
unto death."
"Know ye how to tell a good doctor 1"
"Nay, mother; 1 tako tho flrst which God
leadottimo to."
Whereupon tho ancient dame gavo him a
sprig of Euphrasy and said:
"Hold this to thy eyes when thou lookest
at a doctor's houso and thou will straightway see tho ghosts of those who have tiled
from ids bungling. Tako thou tho doctor
with tlio fewest ghosts."
Thorenf tor whenever that mau como to a
doctor's houso ho hold tho mystic herb to
his eyes, and oddzooks I ft fearful sight mot
his clairvoyant gazo. Around every doctor's
door shivered n ghastly crowd of uneasy
ghosts, and, what seemed strange to that
mau, the larger and moro comfortable tho
house the greater was tbo awesome troop at
tho door.
Through tho deserted streets ho galloped
from doctor's houso to doctor'o houso, seeking In vain for ono whoso gates wero not
besieged by uneasy spirits. At longth up
a quiet lime ho espied a modest houso bearing a doctor's shingle, und lol hut a solitary ghost ant upon the door stop.
"Here, by God's grace," quoth tho man,
"Is tlto doctor for mo."
But little timo had passed, I ween, before
that stout horso was hearing tho man and
his physician along the road to tho slek
woman.
When thoy woro well on toward tho ond
of tliolr journoy tho doctor amlloda pleasant

I'nit.ticiii Mnthod*. I'ursuatl by the Great
Invi'iitor-Kocont Experiments  In the
A|)|)]j_iitloti of Electricity to Railway Transportation,;
If you meet Edison this morning he has
just round somethm',', and if "you meet him
to-mon'ow he has added a new discover*, to
tho realm of scientific invention, lt is hard
to keep up with him. Probably no investl
gator in tlio lleld ol scienco bas over been
surrounded by such perfect conditions for
prosecuting bis researches. This bas not
always been so, of courso, for Thomas Kdl<
son has discovered among othor things the
wny of making money.       ■.. . ■ Ji*. ■*.-."
His laboratory Is about a mile from tbe
station at Orange, N. J. His charming
homo is not lar removed in tho beautiful
rural isolation of Llewelyn Park. Within
lho inclosuro whero Ins working plant is
situated stands a largo threcstorled brick
liuililing. Tin1* is tho laboratory, a perfect
j hoo-hivoofenei'getic experimenting.
When ono on tors lhe laboratory lie is con-
fronted by a printed poster which Informs
tbo inlrudhifc visitor that Mr. Edison is so
ocoupied with his work nnd tho stream of
callers Is fio'great that ho is constrained to
luilo himself absolutely. Happily, an ap
lituntmenttomcct linn robbed this placard
of its businesslike in hospitality. Ho was
engaged at tho moment, however, in work
which he could not easily Interrupt, and
uegged for a quarter of an hour's delay.
j This time of waitni" admitted of a cursory glance ut the building Thoro is a fine
library room with numerous alcoves oil
fron, its two stories. Itls Hnistied in hard
wood, with a parquet ry Door strewn with
fl'crsluh rugs, und the largo space brilliantly lit by electric light.* There are hun-
Ui'C'ls of theso being constantly tested in
the building, and there is a seeming cx-
iruvsi'-uiicciti the lavish illumination, which
I', only a seeming one. Me has ono hundred
ni.o lifly men in constant employment in

his labors aro clnully lit this important
biancl), where so jiiiiej* ia,still unknown.
An i;tigincof forty homo power runs all the
nm-. LlDcryof the simp, though there ts a
.yiuinooti the second door which Is used
iV.heti the larger engine is not working. Htyi
On the third Hoot llierp is al tho western

MinitiHc application which they involve
with such clearness lhat even tho ordinary
pniul, littlo used to ihoii«ht on such sub
ject/sl can grasp the lik-a at once.
In this room is a RiilMl piano, ono made
for Joscl Hofmann, mid sent to Mr. Edi-on
after thai young phonouicrion hud completed
'in- concert season. 1 n this room is tbe pho-
'itph. Boxes, liiii si with wax cylinders
live inches long, stand on the flour. .These
cylinders are tho phonetic records of some
phase of sound, and when ono is fitted on
lhc brass cylinder ol the phonograph and
the glass-tipped ends ol a bifurcated rubber

blast of u lull band, clearly discriminating
the different instruments; or somo vocal
-.olo with piano accompaniment; or some
conversational i email's, or an addross by a
hpCiilrcr.      ■■; : iM-i'.'...-.--.".
Thn quarter of an hour'scgraco to the In-
jventor was more than up after a walk
{through the laboraloiy. In a moment Mr.
Edison came in, with a cigar-box undor his
'arm, drossed In a black suit and a flannel
shirt, wilh a carlcssly.knotted .tie. Any
,].(*• meeting him hy chanco In tho building
would take hlm to bo onn of the humblest
"mployos. Ho seated himseir and put hts
hand back of his ear at tho ilrat remark
shot at him In tho ordinary tonoof con. or*
-ntion, for, liko Hell, the inventor of the
■clephone, Edison, the inventor of thoplio*
iO!-raph, ln deaf. He has a round face,
., trown hair, a gootl-natured, off-hand air
tnd is fond of an easy posturo when ho Is
■alking. ii •■.  ■■• ■■>
"What Is your last trick In tlio Held or
science, Mr. Edison?" was tho lirst qucs-
[ ion. ■ •."™*t:,v,   - ■
" I am not a sclentiflc man," was tho
'nther unexpected response. "I am an in-
■-nntoi'. Thoro Is n difference between
hem, although It may no.cr havo struck
•on. A seienUlle man busies himsolf with
.lio theory. Ho Is ^absolutely impractical.
\:i iuvcntor.ls essentially practical. They

liinl* thoy can very well co-exist in the one

m Investigating doos not load to practical
•.•■Hilts, 1 drop it. I do not pursue it as a
lieory, Tho scientific man would bo con-
cut lo go on and study It up purely as a
hcory. 1 do not euro for that." .-'..■ ■ .%**■#
"What about electricity in connection
vith facilitating railioad transportation)"
■■ That ts a great problem. If some means
[■ an bo discovered by which electricity can
1 ic produced fiom coal without its energy
-(-ior; spent In heat, and tho mcanrfof doing
his can 00 accomplished at a reasonable
.--(if-ml dure, then Hu: application of electric
tower as a motor to electrio trains and
iiu.s-Atlantie t-ieiiincrn will bo n valuable,
useful, economic thing. But it has not
been discovered yet. Electricity as a mo*
tlvo power Is a gain of oighty-flvo per cent.,
and whon tho means of educing or producing electricity from coal without Intervening combustion and consequent waste of
| on orgy Is brought about, threo hundred
'" nsofcoal will dothe work of flfico. hundred now when it is burned and steam em
ployod as the motive power. Uut thin can't
be dono with largo trains now economically. I am giving a good den) of attontion to
Miis subject. 1 havo accomplished this re-
sii it undor laboratory conditions, but those
vill not do to mako tho process available
from a commercial point of view,"
' " Do you supposo tlio naturo of electricity
.will over bo discovered?». was asked him
noxt.
" Yos. I think It can and will bo somo day.
Ihero nro thousands working at these
.tilings, and from all tho different data that
|« collected on tho subject of electricity
lomebody will atrlbo a groat law that will
I bo n revelation. A great many of tho great*
nit things aro discovered, they are not invented.  Bell discovered tho telephone, ho
did not invent it. He was making exper.
incuts on telegraphy by sound and fmiiid
out ubout the transmission of the voice by a
wiro."
" What do you think of tho Keely motor!"
"I don't think much of it. The biggcsE
work it has dono so fnr has been to enable
Keely to wear diamond studs and drive
good horses. Men that invent a thing or
dfscover a thing don't net about it us he
does about this motor. I don't put any
faith in it, anddoubt if any thingevercomes
out of it."
"Has any thing been dono in this matter
of telegraphing from a moving train?"
"Yes. That is perfected now. The Lehigh Vulley road has twelvo trains equipped
for transmitting messages in this wny. The
sound-waves strike the telegraph wires by
lhe sido of tho track and through Induction
a current is produced and the message gathered by an instrument from the several
wires nnd read. It doesn't make any difference whether the wires nro up or down.
Tho sound-waves hit them in either en. o.
"During tbo blizzard, when the Morse'
system was of no uso, tho Lehigh Valley
road ran Us trains and regulated thing;-
along the lino entirely by this system. All
llio wrecking trains are equipped wilh tlio
menus to transmit messages by thia system."
"What do you think of the application of
electricity fm* the purpose of executing
criminals who have to suffer the death
penalty?"
"That is a good idea. Tho man will be
killed with a current of the proper number
of volts in thr* tenth of a second. There
won't bo timo for the sense-bearing nerves
to telegraph the nows that he is hurt to his
brain before ho will he dead from the
shock. And it will be so lightning-like
quick that tho criminal can't suffer much.
I did quito n Jot of experimenting with currents on dogs. It was funny. At first, we
used continuous currents. After the electricity charged tho dog ho stood slill without the slightest ehati^e in his appearance,
lie did not move, and his eyes retained the
samo expression they usually wore. Then
after a in unite, or a minute and a half, he
would collapse and tumble over, dead.
Kir-ally, wo tried alternate currents. These
are shot out in one direction ami then in the
oilier, in shocks of infinitesimal duration.
Then it was found that this slioi-k of one*
tenth of a second killed the dog
"After lhat tho men who were handling
tho wires were uncommonly careful," suid
Mr. Edison, with a grin "Thoy wear tub'
ber gloves, and somebody told me that he
saw lho foreman put thom on to make a
to in his memorandum book
" We had one dog lhat received a current
of J 400 volts, and the old fellow survived ft
Wc concluded lo let him live alter that, and
hois walking round to day as good as cvci
after his shock. Wc call him Ajux, because
hn played with tho thunderbolts."
" What, else have you been doing of late?-'
"Toomany things io loll you. I've been

" What sort of stuff is, it?" asked the wondering visitor. - "'
"Asbcstus. That is a fragment of a

how long ago, There wns a time when it
woe" tlHjiight- that the making of asbcstus
cloth would become an important industry,
but so many difficulties wero encountered
by those who experimented with the stuff
thut very little was ever made, and such
cloth is now a caro curiosity. The ancients
wove lids curious mineral substance inlo
fabrics which were used to wrap the bodies
of mummies,.
"The name is applied to particular forms
of various minerals, especially to certain
varieties of hornblendo.arid pyroxene. The
word is Oreek, and mcansasubslanee indestructible by lire. It ean bo fused, however, but not readily. Tho fibrous varieties
of asbcstus are readily picked lo pieces with
the fingers, and Ionic very much like flax,
There are various colors, somu specimens
being while, some blue, others gray and
brown. There is a variety known ns mountain cork, winch is found in thin sheets aud
so light that it will float on water. Asbcstus
is" found abundantly in tho mountains of
Italy and Switzerland and ln several States
of this country. It Is chiefly used in the
manufacture of fire-proof roofing, steam
packing and for othor purposes where a
light, uninflammable, non-conductor is rcqiti-

FALSE  FIRE ALARM.
How an Innocont Old Go nttomnn Orontod
a Ouott Deal of Kxcl turnout.
A Cambridge gentleman was asked to
buy a ticket to tho firemen's ball and good-
naturedly complied, says a Boston letter to
tho Provitlonco Journal. Tho next question
was what to do with it. Ono of his two
men-servants would probably bo glad to use
it, but ho did not wish to ahow favoritism.
ritcn It occurred to him thnt ho might buy
another ticket and give both of his servants
■. pleasure.
Not knowing just how to proceed ho inquired of a policeman whero tho tickets
wero tobo had.
"Why don't you go down to tho ongino*
house."- snld tho oflleer. 'Tho men nil
Know you."
fto the old gentleman wont to tho ongino*
limine but when ho entoroJ' tkaeo wns no
one in sight. Ho had never booti'ln such a
place bolore, but waa iQrfooUy familiar
with tho uso of electric sigmils. On the
■dilo of tho room was a button, evidently
connected with a boll, nud uuturaily
onoimli, after waiting a minuto or two ho
put his thumb upon it.
Tho effect was oloctrical In ovory boiiho
of tho word. From tho air overhead—so, at
[easl, it seemed to tho old gentleman In lilu
bo wilder ment—men began to rain down,
completing their toilets as the fell. The
horses rushed outof their stalls, nnd, iu a
word, all tho mnchlnory of a modern on-
gluo-houso wns instantly in motion.
Amid all this turmoil stood tho mlld-iunn-
nered and innocont old gentleman, who,
oven now, did not suspect that hu hivl
touched tho firo alarm. The men t-usltod
upon him for Information ns to tho whoro*
nbouts of tho flro, but whon ho opened his
mouth lt was only to say, in tho mildest accents:
"I should liko to buy another ticket to tho
bull, It you please."
Tho situation was so ludicrous that no
ono oould bo angry, not oven tho men whoso
nap hod boon brokon iuto, and tho nid gou-
tloman bought his ticket nnd departed In
peace        	
u'loti from Tight -.noiii*-.
A verdict of dea'Ji from tight lacing
comes from a Birmingham jury, expressed as n vordict of "Heath from pre. s.

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.

Heavy ( ran berry Shipment.
The lirst heavy exportation of cranberries from this city will bo made tomorrow morning, whan Mr. Vianen
will ship 1000 gallons to Viotoria. Tho
cranberry crop, though largo this year,
is not reaching the market in the usual
quantities. The reason for this is that
tho Indians mado such oxcollont wages

not disposed to wandor about a cold

their larder is well supplied with bacon

t'lil-li'- vs. High School,
A very interesting game of foot ball
was played on tho cricket grounds yesterday afternoon, between teams from
the public and high suhoels. Tho
match was vigorously contested, and
thu bnys proved themselves no mean
players. Victory went to the publio
school toam by two trios, to nothing
for the high school pupils. Tlie match
was played without referee or umpire,
all disputes, nnd thoy were many and
long, being decided by force of loud
and emphatic argument iu which all
tho players took a lively part. Tho
high school boys aro not satisfied with
their defeat and will challengo tho
■publics" to a roturn match at on
early date, when they expect to turn
tho tables.

Poor Excuhck,
Tho Ncws-AdveiiUer of this morning
tamely trios to shield tho action of the
Vancouver lacrosse club in tho importation of players for tho championship
match on Saturday, by stating that
Westminster was lho first to institute
this ordor of things by getting Camp
hell and Cambridge for iho last match.
Tho jVetttj also asserts that Finch ami
McLean, how 0ft route from Winnipeg,
aro going to lako n permanent residence in Vancouver, and that Camp'
bell is going to leavo WestminBter iin-
modmtoly aftor Saturday's match.
Tho item is misleading nud incorrect,
and by no means a truthful (statement
of matters as thoy stand.
Cambridge obtained a situation in
Westmlnater on the day that thu last
Victoria*Westminster match was played in this city—n month previous to
tho Inst match with Vancouver—and
ho is atill in the same omploy. Camp-
bell, it is true, was not long in Westminster before the last match against
Vancouver, but ho was not imported
to piny in tho gamo. He came to the
Royal Oity on the advice of his old
friend, Mr. C. O. Stewart, with whom
he had an agrcomont to do so before
thoy separated in Winnipeg somo
montha before. Cnmpboll haa beeu
regularly employed since his arrival,
ft lid if ho leaves ho gives up a good
situation at his own pleasure. The
oases of Finch and McLean, who aro
going to play for Vancouver, aro
altogether different, Tho firat holds
an important position on the Winnipeg Free Press, which ho ia not
likely to throw up for anything thnt
might ho offered hiin in Vancouvor,
antl Finch is the member nf a large grocery firm. The fact that each ot thoao
men havo n return ticket, bought nnd
sent to them from Vnncouvor on Tueaday week, givoB the at .tement mado
by the News a rather untruthful appearance. And this is where tho contemptible part of the affair lies. Men
coming to tne country to live have undoubtedly a right to play lacrosse, but
men hired in Winnipeg to play a match
oil a certain day and then return homo,
is altogether different, especially when
an attempt is made to keep the schemo
secret and when agents ure sent from
Vancouver to obtain bets in Westminster from meu who were willing to
play tho gamo on tho merits of tho
bona lido members of the club. But
tho tables havo boen turned on tho
Vancouvoiites, thanks to friends in
Winnipeg who exposed tho schemo,
and when tho day of the match arrives
it will be found that tho Vancouver
importations will bo confronted on tho
field by two othor Winnipeggera, Mc-
Donald and MoBean, who have been
secured as an offset to Finch and McLean. Tho standard of tho game is
not raised higher by theso tactics, but
tho Vanoouvoritcs havo only themselves to thank for tho new and unsatisfactory order of things.
Tho Westminster club has always
boen anxious, and is anxious now, to
play tho championship match ou tho
merits of the local players, uud, if
Vancouver will agree, tlio imported
players can be sot aside and tho gamo
played by tho bona fide members of
tho two eluba. Hore ia an opportunity for Vancouver to redeem itself; will
it embrace tho occasion?

Tho rain last night had the effeot of
keeping away a huge number of people who hnd intended to bo present nt
the distribution of medals to tho la-
crusso and football players, but notwithstanding this the city hall contained a large and enthusiastic audionco
when tho proceedings commenced,
The ladies were very strongly represented, nnd they deserve the highest
praise for turning out sopluokily on
such a disagreeable night. At 8 o'clock
Mayor Townsend called tho meeting
to order nnd explained why tho meeting had boon called. Ho said the
members of the athletic clubs of the
royal city had covered themselves with
glory during the present season, and
the public demonstration to them was
given so that they might understand
how their efforts wero appreciated.
Woatminster was proud of tho victories
won by tha football, lacrosse nnd cricket clubs, aud ho hoped tho reception
given them last niglit would have tho
effect of stimulating them to even better efforts in tho future. On Saturday
next tho lacrosse club would play tho
last match of tho season, for the Al-
hnmbrn cup and the championship ef
the province, and he hoped tho wholo
public and tho ladies in particular
would turn out and cheer the players
on to victory. Westminster had confidence in the ability of her lacrosse
club to bring the provincial championship to tho royal city, and keep tt hero.
His worship's remarks were loudly applauded.
Insido tho aldermanic onolosure were
a largo number of holies wlto had consented to assist in tho presentation.
Among thosu wore Mrs. Townsend,
Mrs. Sheriff Armstrong, Airs. Thos.
Cunningham, Airs. ,1. C. Whyte, Airs.
Rossj Mra. Capt. Irving, tho Misses
Armstrong, Airs. Strickland, Airs. T.
J. Armstrong, and many others. A
large number of prominent citizens
were nlso present.
The lacrosso team was first called to
the front, and tho ladiea decorated
them with tho medals, paying a pretty
compliment to each as tho ceremony
was performed. Those decorated woro
Mossr.. Whyte, Cambridge, Stewart,
Carrie, Campbell, McMartin, Liatc-r,
Corbott, Gow, Lewis, Thompson and
Hill. Mr. Policy was tho only player
absent. The conclusion of iho ceremony was attended with a storm of applause from tho audience.
Mr. J. C. Whyto replied on behalf
of tho team, thanking the public for
tho hearty support accorded them.
Lacrosse, ly) aaid, is tho national game
of Canada, and as sueh ought to hold
the dearest sympathies in the hearts of
tho people of Woatminster. To-day
the royal city club, after a short existence of four montha, -stands equal to
the best in tho provinco. On Saturday next the Vancouver and Westminster clubs would diaput3 for tho
coveted championship, nnd ho would
say tho royal city team felt confident
of victory notwithstanding the odda it
had to contend against. Ono thing
was certain, tho club would do justice
to tho confidonce ropoaed iu it by the
poople of Westminster. He hoped the
ladies would turn out in largo numbers
to witness tho game, and thus encourage tho players by their presonco. Air.
Whyte's remarks wero recoived with
much enthusiasm and applause.
Tho football team was noxt ranged
insido the bar, nud, after a neat little
speech from Alayor Townsend, the
ladies distributed tho medals with tho
same coromony as in tho first instance.
Tho medalists in this instance wero
Rov. H. Irwin and Alessrs. Lister,
Boll, Whyto, Woods, Mowat, Lewie,
Millor, Clute, Corbett, Pickles, Mo-
Martin and Allen. Alcaara, Hamber
and Fulton wero absent. Air, R. B.
Lister replied, thanking tho citizens in
general for tho hearty support accorded
tho club, The football players had three
reasons for playing the gamo. Tho
lirst wns physical exorcise, the second
the lovo of tho game, and tho third
tho entertainment it gavo the public.
In tho past tho Westminster club had
held its own against all rumor*-, nnd he
wan confident thnt futuro contests
would not dim tho victories of tho
past. On behalf of the club ho
thanked tho city council for the assistance it had given all tho athletic
clubs in furnishing a good playground,
which he wns certain would prove an
excellent stimulus to the youth of tho
city.
This concluded tlto happy ceremony, and after three ringing cheers
and a "tiger" had beon given for the
ladies who had assisted in the presentation, tho meeting dispersed.
