Denvkh, Oat, 10.—The brotherhood

presiding. After wolonmin*rtho delegates Ohof Arthur said:   --Tho prei
ent timo represent- tho turning point
in the hiGloiy of the order, for it haB
become apparent that a feeling, essentially radical, haa crept iu und taken
possession of a fow of our members.
This iB dangerous and must bo suppressed, for owing to this, statements
seemingly contradictory havo crept up
and becomo publio which could nover
have happened had thero been evon-
neBsof thought and honesty of purpose. If a man's ability extends beyond that rerjiiired by the brotherhood,
then it becomes his duty to doff the
begrimed habiliments of tho mechanic
and assume that pusitiou fur which he
is particularly gifted. To nurse one's
dissatisfaction and scatter iti seeds
broadcast to tako root in tho organizations nf other men, is sinful and blighting to tbo character," He reiterated
with emphnsis his former statement
that tho organization was law abiding,
uud suid: "To-duy I cloarly dclinu

whon I say that only us u last

ed it had paid out to the widows and
orphans of disabled members $300,000
making a total since its organization of
$2,008,109. Ho thought it impossible
to over estimate the blessings and bone-
fits derived from the ordor, and ho advised evory nun within the range of
his voico to endeavor, at whatever bso-
reficc, to save a little of Ins earnings
every year, if only @25, aa "possession
of proporty brings respect, and always
uddB to tho comfort aud power of workingmen, besides gaining the esteem of
good citizens."
TWO "WORKED OP""."
Placerville, Cal., Oct. 10.—John
Olsen and Win, Drager, who with
John Myers ou March 22nd, 1888,
murdered John Lowell, an old farmer,
and then stalo tho stock on his farm,
were hanged here at 7 o'clock this
morning in the presence of only 20
mon. Sheriff Anderson read tho death
warrants to (he men at 0:30 a.m.
Drager listoncd attentively and remarked, "That's all right" Olseon
was very sick and Beemed to bo breaking down. On the march to tho scaffold, Drager walked erect and steadily.
Two deputies wore compelled to steady
Olsen, Drager in a clear voico made
a speech from the scaffold in which he
thanked the oflicers for their kindness
to him. He said that his time had
como and he waB ready to go. If he
had any enemies he forgave thorn. Ol*
sen asked pardon for all his offences
and forgave his enemies, Whilo the
straps wero being adjusted, Drager
scanned the knot thut was to ond hia
existence, and critically eyed the rope
and beam. At 7 o'olock tho trap was
sprung, Drager exclaiming, "Jesus,
Joseph and Mary, into thy keeping 1
put my soul." Neither moved a muscle after the drop, the necks of both
worn brokon. Olson died in 10 min*
ubs and Driigor in 13, The remains

Oreat events impending.
New York, Oot. 10.—Tho Mail and
.Express' Paris eablo saya that the views

ing the future of the papacy are especially important at this juncture, becauso thero are many hero who are
cupubleof f.-miing clear and unbiased
opinions, and who look upon tho Italian situation from particularly close
quarters, and with a moro independent
spirit than is posaiblo in Germany,
Spain or Italy. One of tho most important opinions thus far expressed is
that of Ernest Ronmi, who, whatever
his charachr in relation to religion
in general may bo, is an acuto observer
of current affairs of ecclesiastical intorest. In an interview on thi.", subject,
he said ho considered that the ultimate
departure uf tho popo from Homo is
inevitable, but that tho status quo will
be maintained aB long as possiblo. The
reason he gives for tho delay in tlie
abandonment of the "eternal city" is
that tho cardinals are conscious that
such a slep would bu the signal for thu
breaking of tho hold which the papacy
hus upon Human Catholics; and wuuld
certainly result in the springing up of
schisms in tho church. Italy, says M.
Kenan, would hob endorse the idea of
receiving directions from a pope dwelling abroad, and tho fealty of the Italians would soon weaken and die out
when the supreme pontiff was nu
lunger onu of themselves, and the old
traditions of tho Vatican had ceased to
be a present faot. It- .linn Homan Ca*
tholics would, in this predicament,
sooner or later elect mi Italian popo,
resident in Italy. Then wuuld como
the great catastrophe, fur hu would bo
followed by others selected because of
doctrinal or administrative differences.
Cardinal Lm-igorio, with whom ho had
an intorvii-w 011 this matter, it ia reported, was asked specially concerning thu
possibility of electing a Frenchman tj
succeed Leu XIII. Ho expressed the
opinion that the eleotion of a French*
man as successor to thu papal chair, un*
dor existing circumstances, is out of
tho question, and he feared the possi*
bio results of such stops to tho homo*
[joiiity aud solidity of tho ohurch.

from Viotoria, B. 0., in which he puts
tho affairs of England in that quaiter
of tho globe in arather lugubrious light.
He appeals to the British publio to

in the Behring's Sea dispute." He
asserts thero is every probability tbat

mako good her claim to the entire

fishermen being driven out of it.

Mr. J, J. Donavan, chief engineer,
Mr. E. M, Wilson, treasurer, and
Mr. H. Y. Thompson, attorney for the
Fairhaven & Southern Bailway, ur-,
rived in the city lut night from Fairhaven, having come by the way of
Vancouver from the Sound. The
viait of these gentlemen, though strictly on business, has nothing startling in
connection with it. A representative
of The Columbian hade long chat
with Mr. Donavan this morning regarding railway matters in general.
Mr. Donavan expressed his pleasure
at the passage of tho railway bonus
by-law, which, however, was not unexpected. Mr. Bennett is in Now
York at present and had not been ap*
prised of the success of the by-law,
but would be sometime during today. The company's intentions regarding railway construction, aa already stated in these oolums,  would
uu strlCtiy uuii ■....■*■  iw, -mu ur. isuiitt*   '
van expressed himself very clearly on
this point. The purchase of right of
way back to the city of Whatcom has
not beon completed yet, but three
alternative routes have been priced,
one of which he will decide on within
30 days, even if terms cannot bo ar*
ranged with the landowners. The
law regarding the acquisition of railway right of way in Washington Territory iB: If an amicable arr.* ngomeot
cannot be arrived at between the company and the owner of tho land, the
company call for an arbitration commission, which has the power if fixing
the value. If tho land owi.jr isdif-
sntisfiod with the arbitration he cau
appeal to the courts, where if 1' > appeal
is successful all costs go agt nst the
company, but, if to the con: *ary, the
costs of the suit are levii-d a; dust the
Jand. It will thus be seen tha no mat*
ter how obstinate a landowne may be
he cannot obstruct the buildii ? of the
railway. Of course, the compa. y is supposed to use every means to a range nn
amicable settlement before as'ung for
an arbitration commission.
There are only a few   ■ tubborn   -
landowners in rear of What-om who   ■
aro holding ont for  enormoi 1 figured
for their land,   These mon   ire  evidently anxiouB to get wealthy < n a atrip
of land they would gladly hn-re given
away free a few yean ago had ho pros*
pect of a railway been half  to  good,
But now, when  the building of the
rood is placed   beyond  a dot bt, they ,
are vieing with eaoh other an to who
oan ask the most extravagant figure.
From Whatcom to the international
boundary the surveys of two distinct
routes have boen completed under the
supervision of Mr. Janes, engineer in
charge. All along these routes the
landowners have acted in a manner'
more liberal than expected, and tho
arrangements as regards the prheot
the land to be acquired are in a por*
fectly satisfactory condition. _ The
only salvation for these people lies in
the building of a railroad through their
country; this tbey realize end govern themselves accordingly. The
ileum te j-uuit* ootweeii bii.h.u _«*»
Whatcom will bo named within a
week.
Tbe preient visit of Mr. Donovan
and his confreres to Westminster is for
the purpose of making a further inspection of the work accomplished,
and to lay out plans for future opera* ,
tions. There are two queationi regarding right of way through Surrey
that require attention, and the niatter
of bridging the Nicolmokl river baa
also taken a now phase. The people
of Langley want a draw placed in the
bridge and are agitating for tho same.
None of the municipality bridges hare
draws in them, ana consequently unless all bridges are built alike the draw
iu tho railroad bridge would be a use-
leas expense. The company, however,
are willing to make the main span both
wider and higher than the municipality bridge. As to the company's in*
tuitions regarding work in Westminster, Mr. Donavan would not speak,
but ssid that Mr. Bennett would visit
the city immediately after bis return
from New Vork, wliich would be in
about ten days, when future operations would be deoided on.
At Fairhavon, Mr. Donavan said,
everything is going along ns well aa
could be expected considering tho unfavorable woather of the last few
weeks. Tracklaying towards tho Skagit is progressing rapidly and the company expects to be running 1 lassenger
trains between Sedro and Fairhaven
beforo Christmas. Grading f om Fair*
havon northwards will be u.ider way
within ten days. Operations generally
throughout the fall and wiut r months
will largely depend on the woather,
but while work can be done lot a day
will be lost.
Mr. Donavan remains in Westminster until to-morrow afterm on, when
he returns homeward across the oountry in order to inspect the pi-ogress of
tho work en route.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Thero is a good deal of truth and
philosophy in the remark mado by a
wit when ho heard of the divorce of
a couple recently married : "I um
glad they married each other, for iE
tbey had each married somobodv
eiso mere would lmve ueim two. unfortunate couples instead of ono."
Another expedition to tho north
pole is to be undertaken, notes an
exchange. The leading spirit of
the perilous scheme is.Dr. Nansen,
who has just returned safely from a
trip across the Greenland peninsula,
and is consequently not lacking in
experience of the dangers to be
overc .me in the frozen regions of
tho north.   Dr. Nansen is on in-
■ t-t-cpid »i\ eilm-ai-- *.***■■   -—.*•*** --«'">l—
lary thero is no such word as fail.
His plan is to differ essentially from
those that buve preceded it, and
whicli have invariably i-nded unsuccessfully und fatally. Ho will take
with him a Norwegian crow well
inured to tho rigors of u.epld climate.
They will set sail in one small ship,
npw being built for the adventure,
und whon it will carry them, no further north they will abandon it and
push ou in boats and sledges. It is
also said that no lino of retreat will
bo established by providing stores
of provisions at diftbront point!*, but
tho party will simply continue on
till tbey reach tlio pole. Tho sum
of t *mifey thousand pounds has
■ nll'eatiy been raised by public subscription to defray tho cost of tho
expedition. This is the outline of
Dr. Hansen's scheme, which bears
evory appearance of a bold attempt
to perish. The successful issuo of
his Grain land trip may have moved
hiin to greater achievements, but
undoubtedly from what has boon
told by voyageurs who escaped to
tell anything, a north pole expedition is hazardous in the extreme,
and almost certain death to those
who do not retreat. However, tho
same might liavo been said, and
doubtless was suid, of every risky
voyage from tho beginning of time,
and in this age when wo are just
realizing whut tho power of man
oan accomplish, it is well to patiso
before laying down tho limit of human possibiliiy with too groat confidence.    D-\ Niuison  may .succeed,

any man in any other way. Secondly, a man must be seriously in earnest, lie must act with singleness
of heart and purposo; ho must do
with all hia might and with all his
concentration of thought tho one
thing at tho 011,0 timo which ho is
culled upon to do. And if somo of
my young friends should say hero,
'1 cannot do that—I cannot lovo
work,' thou I answer that thero is a
certain remedy, and it is work,
Work in spite of yourself, and make
tho habit of work, and when tho
habit of work is formed it will be
transfigured into tho lovo of work ;
and at last you will not only abhor
idleness, but you will havo no happiness out of the work whieh then
you are constrained from love to do.
Thirdly, tiie man must be charitable,
not censorious — self-effacing, and
not self-seeking; and ho must try at
once to think und to do tho bost for
his rivals and antagonists that can
be done. Fourthly, tho man must
believo that labor is lifo, that sue
coosful labor is lifo and gladness,
and that successful labor, with high
aims ami just objects, will bring to
him tho fullest, truest, and happiest
lifo that can bo lived upon tlio
earth." Such autobiographical facts

kind by a man whoso success enables

It is truo that tho cuso of Sir Andrew Olark in his youth was not one
of poverty, as ho tell us that he had
a small patrimony; but ho was bur-
cloned by a degree of physical weakness which promised an early death,
and ho entered upon tlio struggles
of professional life in London wholly
without tho aid of relatives, friends,
or even acquaintances. If a man
under sucli circumstances can attain
the highest professional rank in tho
greatest capital in the world, surely
no one should bo discouraged, No
saying is more common among phy
sicians than the declaration that a
strong physical constitution and
good health aro necessary to success
in lifo j yet there have been many
instances in which this rule does
not seem to havo boon true. Darwin, tho greatest naturalist of his
time, was always an invalid, and
here wo liavo Sir Andrew Clark, ono
of tho most eminent men of the
present day, telling us that he was
so sickly that his life was not worth
a year's purchase When ho begun

successful career.

Sir Andrew Olark, tho president

presented to Sir Andrew Clark a

Tut His Foot In It
A peculiar accidont happened to a horse
belonging In Uarwinton, Conn,, tho othor
day, A nolso waB board in tho barn, aud
on going out to boo what tho troublo was,
tho men found tho horso lying ou his sido
with ouo of bis hind logs caught fn hts
mouth between tho hoof aud tho pastern
joint. After considerable troublo, attended,
says tho Hartford Post, by no little danger of getting badly hurt by tha struggling
of tho animal, ho was Anally released from
his uncomfortable position apparently none
tho worso for tho adventure. Apparently
tho horse, while fighting flics, reached his
head around to blto thom off, and at tho
samo timo raised his foot to stamp them off
and got caught in that way.    .

HOW   LARD   IS   RENDERED.
All   I'spliiim'ton   ul-  tlio   Mimui'icturo   of
Thin Staple Article.
Lard is dcl'ucd in Webster's Dictionary
ar. "tlio fat of Bwino aftor. boing molted
nnd separate*! from tho flesh." This, says
tho Chicago Tribune, is genoric, nnd is
in cbntvadiatinptiori to tallow, wliich is
'* tlio suot or fat of animals of tho sheep
or ox kind separated from membranous
nnti fibrous matter by molting it down."
ricviou'i to tho war of tho rebellion,
wlion Cincinnati was tho groat pack-
in,- enter of tho United Statos and when
the :.,!.:ito of Ohio packed moro hogs than all
tlm other States combined, the rendering
of lard was conducted at tho packing-houses
iu the samo manner, hut on a much larger
Bcnlo, an was practiced by tho oountry and
village housewives of tho period. Tho loaf-
lard and trimmings from tho hams and
Bides wore cut up Into pieces about the sizo
of a walnut und thrown into a big iron kettle aet in brick-work. Fire wus applied,
and as soon as tha fat began to molt a continuous stirring becamo necessary to pro*
vent tho boiling grenso from burning. Those
who havo lived in tho country and seen tho
farmer's wifo frying out tho lard stripped
at tho annual hog-lulling will remember tbo
odor that attached tothe operation. It remained in the house for soveral days. As
sooii us tho pieces of meat adhering to tho
lard woro cooked crisp tho lard wob pro*
nouiit'od "done." Tho lire was banked,
am'as soon as tho ■•cracklings" had sunk
to tho bottom workmen armed with largo
scoops dipped tho cooling lard into tho barrel., and UorcQB-in which it was afterwards
tihiiiied to consumers at homo nnd abroad.
Tho operation of rondoring by flro was
not always a successful ono. Sometimes
tho lard was not "cooked "onough, and
honco was llublo to becomo rancid In warm
weather. Moro ofton it was overdone and
scorched to a greater or loss degree.   In
, either event, thoro wns a loss to the packer.
Hence some othor mode of rendering be*
oumq desirable Tho uso of steam at low
prasfluro for molting sugar and cleaning
sugiu' hogsheads was woll known. Tho author nf the lirst application of steam to frying out lard is not known. Howovor, tho
procesu camo in vogue in 1858. The tanks
of lhat period woro mado of wood, and wero
of less than one-third of the capaaicy of tbe
iron tanks now In uso. In tho kettles nothin;; but the leaf lard, tho trimmings and tho
bright pieces of fat carefully pickod from
tho inlcstluos woro usod. In the steam
tank to the throo varieties mentioned wero
added the heads aftor thoy had boen care<
fully scruped aud washed. Sometimes tho
heads wero rondored separately. It was tho
timo whon lard oil was largely used for illuminating purposes—petroloum had not
then becomo thoroughly utilizod, nud was
much higher in price than now—and many
of tho old-time packers woll romember when
lard mado from pigs' heads sold for moro
than primo leaf, because of its greater percentage of oil.
On Its Ih'3t production thore was a prejudice against tho atoam-rondoring lard. Tho
•■iki-.timers nsarulo kuow all about tho
lit ;.Uc-rcndorcd nrticlo. Most of thom had
scon tho operation porformod on a small
nealc, but tho steamed variety thoy did not
uwlarstand, Honco was tho origin of ■■kotr
tl'-tlryiug." After being cooked in tho
tti aks, tho lard was allowod to run into shallow pirn*., civ: olj-ht foet long and four foot
wide, whore it was allowod to simmer over
a slow lire for a short timo boforo being
placed In tho tierces. It was popularly, but
oiTonoouflly, supposed that this simmering
evaporated a considerable amount of wutor
that had lodged in tho lard during tho
ui .-inning process. .For many yeara aftor
tho war "kei,tlo-drled" lard comuiaudcd a
slight promlum ovor tho steam-rendered,
but this ln timo disappeared, when tlioiat-
.ei' becamo tho standard nrticlo.
Tho "gut lard"—that around tho lower
iiiloatines-mid tho tank bottoms woro
■forked up and rendored into soap-grease,
iiown In tho trado as whito, yellow and
irown, The "whito" was tho lightest-col-
oivd and, of courso, the best Tho names
oi' tho othors oxplain themselves. At tho
prcsout time thoro aro known to tho trade
' four varieties of lard:
" Kottlc-rondored," in whioh tho lard is
j rendered by a steam coll in a jacket, tho
Btcum boing nt high pressure. Thia Is composed of puro loaf, trimmings and tho core-
fully soloted pieces from tho uppor intcs-
tino3.
" Primo steam," composed of throe kinds
namod and tho heads.   Tho rendering is
dono with opon steam in Iron tanks, twolvo
feet long and six foet in diameter.
" Refined lard •' is the nrticlo over which
1 thero has boon so much agitation in Congress, This Ib composed of from 15 to 95
per cont. of cotton-seed oil, 10 por cont. of
ale-trine and 05 to 75 per cont. of steam lard.
The nrticlo intended for consumption in tho
South or for export to Cuba, Contral or
i South America contains a larger proportion
of cotton-seed oil than that which is used in
_ the Northern latitudes,
Fitro loaf lard is tho article as stripped
from tho slaughterer's hog, and is Bold to
the butterluo manufacturers, who separate!
the mombronus portion from It nnd mako a
neutral article, which outers largely into
the composition of bogus buttor. Tho lirst
d artlclos nro tho only ones known to tho
Uo.i id of Trade and subject to its rules of inspection. Tho head of tho department was
actively engaged in tho pocking business
in thia city thirty years ago, and his reputation as an expert is uot confined to this locality. Ho ia equally well-known in Boston
nnd Now York, Tho " roflncd lard " Is sold
direct to thq jobber nnd retailor, and is not
known on 'change. With tho claims for its
wliolcsomonoss mado by tho manufacturers
lho renders uro familiar, as it is only re*
ccntly that lho wholo question was gene
over bv committees of both bouses of Con-
, grcss.
It hns boon charged that steam-rendered
lard is weighted with wator. Tho chief
provision inspector of tlio Board cf Trade
hay-, tbnm teucup of water In a tierce cf
lard will turn it sour iu a short time. That
: tderc ian trace cf water In all commercial
lard is an admitted fact, but it isamero
p 11 itco. Thei o is oven loss in tho " roflncd
arinle, en nccount of tho amalgamation of
ttie lard und stcarine with tho cotton-seed
oil, which is effected at a tomporaturo suf-
flciciitto liquofy tho flrat two, and therefore to va-wi'i/o the wator.  *.'.*»,
Deuont Into the Grand Cniiyou. ....
"I went to tho bottom of tho Grand
Canyon of tho Colorado last winter," said
AV. T.Hart to a Ht. Louis Globe-Demoorat
reporter* "and am ono of tho fow man who
ov t.r attempted tho descent.  I went thoro
i to examine a mino said to exist in the bet-
Knuof tho canyon. X have been all through
tl u Rookies, from Montana to Central
■i-driai, and know what a chasm is, but
tie ttlght of that abyss took my breath
awny. From tlio top to tho bottom ib is
fully six thousand foot. Over a milo bolow

gorge- but not a sound can bo heard, it iB so

but, as a mattor of faot, lt is fully nineteen
'miles, My guide told me 1 would nevor bo

n ;.u'd to go, audi wont. It waa a terriblo

luto place In tho world. Thoro is not. a

regarded ns iho great feature of expression; that is, by porsons who nro neither

ulilcution of llio chin, tho index of tho
mouth and a scoro of other diversities- of
feature.
. First, as to tho oyes as a featuro in National physiognomy, Lnvator, when discussing this question, gives the following
as tho result of his observations: That the
Italians havo small cyos; tho Germans
light-colored cyos, surrounded wilh many
wrinkles; lhe English strong, open, liberal
aud sleudi'iiL-l oyos, and tho Swiss dull'.-yes.
The Lap!! ind oro, according to Bui? m. havo

inelmi!!.. ton Wnck,and lho eyelids rotiring
towurdu thu temple. The eyea of tho Tartars, ho saya, nro small und sunken- (ho
oyebrows Inrgo, covering tlioeyw", aid tho
eyelids-(lliolr. The eyes of lhe Chineie are
small, their oybbrowa largo and the oyolids
mir-edi
Tlio Now Hollander hnd a dull, black oyo,

Oyos fror.it hf-gnats. TothcBpanla-'tl :h :Ti*h
gives "good oyos,'to tho Goth3, bhiueyo*',
tho I'indhuidors, honyv lids and tho
i deep yollow.
'.kdlmauri holds tho opinion that lho
n:d coloVof tlio eyes aro very largely
mit of cllmntio and othor direct con*
■. Thus, ho saya, tho small, hulf-
cIOLK'd, blinking eyes of the Esquimaux aro
due to nature's attempt' to preserve tho
sight from 1 ho dry, cold air and lho effusion
of light from tho snow amidst which thoy
live. The small oyos of nil tho distant and
northern nations, ho says ia another place,
aro in consequence of the imperfection of
thoir growth. It is upon the authority of a
philosophic writer named Dc Fuuw lhat lho
Pcrnvinn has nn eye, tho applo of which is
black and tho whito not vory clear.
This reminds one of tho description by
Russell of a Soucgnmbian's eye, which ho
likens to a boiled pruno set in a plover's
egg. Another authority states that the eye
of the Tm-ks ia devoid of passion or groat enterprise, but that it la eloquent in all tho
penotratlon of bonovolcut cunning. This
wrltor nlso snys tlmt tho "silent oyo "of
tho Englishman " seeks not to pleaso;" thut
tho eye of the Frenchman is " vivacious and
unstable;" that tho Italian's is "ardent"
aud the Dutchman's "half opon and without thought."
Eye3 hnve always been regarded ns tribal
Indications. Tncltu3, for example, describes
tho Germans as "flerco, with blue oyos and
red hair." Tho Colts aro described as
'srtby aud dark-eyed, tho Gauls are red-
haired and light-oyed, while the Nubians
and .Egyptian!) huvo always been spoken of
as clnt'k-cyed.' Those characteristics havo
not apparently changed, and it may do said
'oumlly that the peoplo of tho temperate
zone huvo generally light-colored eyes,
while those of tho extreme zones aro dark.
Of lhe races, tho only ono that enn bo said
to be ligiit-oycd i3 the Caucasian, aud oven
this rood is by no moans uniform as to color
In its cyos. Tho ontiro human history goes
to prove that tho light-haired, bluc-oyed
races arc capable of tho highest degree of
eiviliiAtiou, but it doos uot by any means
provo that tho highest degree or civiliant ion
confined to Uio blonde race:;, Thoro was
a period whon bluo-oyed porsons woro rarely soon., unit to-day sovon-uigLitlin of tho
world's inhabitants have dui-1* eyes. 'Sm
only is the majority on the sido of thoddrk-
jyed, but statistics would seem to mdicatn
.hut that majority is Incrqasing. Iu n
■paper read some timo ago bolero ihu 13wod-
ish Anthropological Society It was stilled'
that brown oyos wero becoming moro common in Switzerland, North Germany, Bel-
glum and Sweden, nnd that out of every ono
hundred sets of iight-oyed parents, lifly-aix
per cent, of tho children had dark oyea.
In this calculation bluo gray and gray
oyos woro classified as bluo, and, If there Is
any weight to bo attached totho repo.fl, it
would show tliat bluo eyes, oven in u bluc-
oyed country, aro becoming decidedly
scarce, which ought to bo good news for llio
blondes.
ll will bo sequential hero to quoto a paragraph or two from Lnvator concerning tha
icloroftho eyes. "Tho most common to
lho oyes," ho writes, "aro ihooiiinge, yellow, green, blue, gray nud gray mixed wit h
whito. The blue and orange are most predominant nnd are often found in the samo
cyo." " Eyos supposed lo bo black," saya
Button, " are only yellow, brown or a de> p
orange; to convince ourselves of which wo
need but look ut thom closely, for wlu-n
seen al n distanco or turned inwards t'.io
light, thoy appear to bo black, becauso tho
yellow brown color Is so contrasted to the
white of tho oyo that the opposition makes
it supposed black.
"Eyes ulso of n loss dark color pasa for
black, but aro not esteemed so fine us the
other becauso tho contrast is not so great.
Thoro arc ulso yollow oyes which do uot
npponr black because tho colors are not deep
onough to be overpowered by the shade. It
is not uncommon to perceive shades of
orange, yollow, gray and blue in the same
cyo, aud wherever blue uppoara, however
small tho tincture, il becomes the predominant color and appears in streaks over the
whole iris.
"Tho finest eyes aro thoso whicli we imagine to bo black or bluo. Vivacity uiul
tire, whicli are the principal ojidructenstlos
to tho eyes, are tho moro emitted when *.lio
colors are deep arid contrasted than when
slightly shaded. Black eyes havo most
strength ci expression and most vivacity;
but the blue nave most mildness and aro
more- nrch. In the former there is nu ardor
uniiitcrupledly bright, becauso the color,
wliich appears to us uniform, emits similar
rollcetions every way wo look nt it. But
modifications uro distlngulsctl in the light
wliich animates bluo eyes, because theie
aro various tints of color producing various
reflections."

KENNEDY BROS,
■°l ntOPRIITOlw:
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.

Nkw Wi:sT.viN-sTrit, JJ. C, October
10th, 1NSU- A question una been raised
in this community as to the political
status of a British subject who wus bom
in tho United Kingdom, settled In this
provinco in 1850, •*ubBoquontly removed
to the United States and hi the year 1871
tloelarad his intention of booomtn, an
American citizen, continued his residence
in tlie United States till 1882, never
completed his citizenship or took fnrthor
stepn in that direction, never hold oflico
or acquired properly in the United
States by virtue of bis declaration of intention, returned to this province in 1882
and has continued to reside thero since
then!
WiU von, as tho attorney-general of
B, C, bo good enough to state whether
a person so circumstanced is or is not u.
lawful British subject nnd qualified to
discharge tho duties and obligations of
oiti/'.'iiflhip.'
Mr. Davio's reply to this luttor, which
settles the question in Mr. Cunningham's fnvor, is us follows:
It appears that inthe yenr 1871 Mr.
Thomas Cunningham, a native of the
United Kingdom, boing then resident at
.Salem, Oregon, declared his intention
before the county oourt of becoming an
American subject, hut that further thnu
making tho declaration of intention Mr.
Cunningham carrlod his project of he-
coming an American citizen no further,
and lias not nine- done so.    •
lho quostion is now asked whether by
his aforesaid declaration of hitontion Mr.
Cunningham's right to bo elected as a
mombor of the provincial legislature has
been impaired, and I am clearly of opinion that it has not,
A declaration of intention may be revolted atany time before It is carried into
offoct, and until carrlod Into effeot has no.

Tho Bank of British Columbia hai

all the soft und delicate shades in the
plumage of the birds havo been produced with surprising fidelity, besides
tho realistic and Jife-ltke action.
Around this study of birds is a lattice
work, intertwined with climntis aud
woodbine in full bloom; outsido nt this
are groups of wild roso cloverly dono.
Tho freiste of the fresco is a study in

finds it somewhat more satisfactory

Speaking of tho death of Senator
Hardisty, ns tho rcnult of au accident,
on Tuesday night lust the World says;
Tho death of nun. Senator Hardisty
removes from the arena of life ono of
tho best known men in the Canadian
Northwest. Ho wns a chief factor in
tho Hudson Bay Company's sorvico,
ns alau wore his fathor and grand*
father before him. Ho was a Canadian, boing born while bis father wns
stationed nt a post in Ottawa district
in 1731. Whilo still a boy tho family
was removed to Manitoba, and it was
in St. John's College, Winnipeg, that
tho deceased received . his education
boing there a classmate of Mr. Frederick Ross, of Vancouvor. He roso
rnpidly in the ranks of tho Hudson's
Bay service, nnd for ninny years he
has had chargo of that whole vast
district having Edmonton na its centre. Ho was related by marriage to
Sir Donald A. Smith, and along with
thut distinguished mnn lias witnessed
and tukon his sharo in tho growth ef
North western Canada since it flrat became a portion of the Dominion. At
tho lust general election to tho houao
of commons, ho coutesetd tho seat
for tho district of Alberta as tin independent candidate, boing opposed by
Mr. D. W. Davis, M. P., in tho Conservative interests, and Dr. J. D,
Lnffetty, Liberal. Ho polled u largo
voto in the northern pnrt of tho constituency, and run Mr. Davis, tho successful candidate, somowhnt closely.
ihort timo nfter words ho was appointed to tho behate. Thousands of
people from one cud of Canada to tho
other will feel u sincere sorrow that ho
lini laid down his earthly honors after
so brief a period. Ho was a mau of
much uoiiuihe kindness of heart, us
many a hapless wnnderor in tho Northwest lias bad the best of reasons for
knowing and remembering.
Senator Hardisty, it might bu added,
was a brother if the Mr. Hardisty, so

While in Montreal n couple of weeks
ago, n representative of lhe Colonist
had a conversation with Mr. Van
Horno, president'of the C. P. 11., concerning the calling of tbo China--'earners n't Victoria. Mr. Van Horne wus
informed that the Victoria board of
trade wero at thnt time moving iu tho
matter, no provision having been:made
in the agreement for a Victoria service. The president of the great Canadian railway said that he could not
understand tho Victorin. During his
last visit to Victorian ho bad nsaured
(he citizens personally, nnd through
tho medium of the Colonist that it wns
tho hitontion of tho C.P.R. to havo
their steamships call at Victoria both
Inwards and outwnrds. They hud not
chuuged their policy in this respect,
nor wns it their intention to do so.
Thoy had not control of tho present
line, thou-'h in tho past they had induced thu owners to have thoir vessel* call nt Victoria. Tho history iu
connection with their withdrawal from
Victuria wns too well known to require
repetition. The new steamers wuuld
be directly under the control of the C.
P. R., and thoy would cull nt Victoria.
Of curse increased dockage facilities
would bu rcquirod, but ho was assured
theso would bo provided by the extension of tho cuter wharf. Victoria
was un tho sumo footing, as far as railway freights and fares wore concerned,
with the other cities nf thu const, and
tbo C.P.R, management valued to its
full extent tho trade furnished tho railway by Victoria, and woro doing all in
thoir power to cultivate it. If it was
the intention of tho C.P.R. to permit
the China steamers to pnsa Victoria,
Mr. Van Horno snid thoy would not
bo mealy-mouthed in stating that such
would bo tho case. Howovor, thoy
had plainly stated that tho stoumships
would call, und ho would again assure
Victorians that as sunn ns tho new
steamships wero placed in servico thoy
wuuld mako thetr port a point of call

Editor Columbian—Dear Sir: For
tho sake of parties who nro interested
and curious to know, will you, or some
of the members of tho Surrey council,
pleaso explain through your columns
why Mr, Bradriiaw was awarded the
contract of tho Surrey dyke, rather than
others whoso bid was lower! For instance, by referring to the Daily British
Columbian of Sept, 3rd ult., I see Mr,
H, Bradshaw's tender was §10,355.14,
whilo that, of Baton & Mclnnes, who
were prepared to give bonds and security
for S10.000, Was only§8,882.82, i.e.,
$1,472.25 less than tbo bid of tho former,
nud yot theso latter gentlemen were
never called on for bonds nnd no attention paid by the counoil to their tenders.
Pleaso let us know whether this job wns
awarded to Mr. Bradshaw upon a second
tender and upon what torms ho has actually undertaken it? Tho sum of 61,-
472.25 is worth something to those who
havo this dyko to pay for. Hoping to
have a full and satisfactory explanation
of tho matter soon, I am, Yours truly,
A Taxpayer,
[Wo must leave the desirable explanations asked for by our correspondent to
members of tho Surrey council, ns tho
most likely to bo able to furnish the information required—El).]
