Prussia; Prince Victor of Wales, Prince
of Meoklomburg-Sch wer hi, Hereditary
Prince and Princess of Saxe-Meiniu-
gen, and other members of the royal
families, besides a goodly number of
people of only less exalted rank. Following the lino of carriages came a
magnificent state carnage drawn by six
prancing bUckchnrtjerB- and containing
Queen Olga of Greece and the blushing
brido. The moat brilliant of nil tho
brilliant uniforms adorning the presence of royally waa that of the Emperor William, wliich as well aa the robes
uf tho Empress, fairly blitzed with dia-
tiionda. There was great enthusiasm
among Ihe people, who thickly crowded the routo of procession. The wed-
ing servico waB elaborate, and occupied
nu ontiro hour. Afterwards the cor-
tego returned by different routes,
amid scenes uf unabated demonstrate
iveness on tho part of tho populace.
Tho miuiingo was then solemnized

rito in the king's private chapel. At 4

Sparta brought his wifo from the royal
palace to hia own pilnce mnid the

but smiling graciously, acknowledged
tho greetings of tiie throng with becoming graco. All the diplomats present in Athena were invited to the banquet in honor of the occasion to-night
at Ihe duke's palace. It was a brilliant
affair nnd the display of wedding presents was dazzling. Chief among these
weru tho gifts of the czar, consisting of
a aet of brilliants, n silver and crystal

Neva regiment for tha duke,
THE  KAISEU AT ATHENS.
Athens, Oct. 28.—Herr Batsman,
marine painter, is in tho suite of
Kaiser Wilhelm during his trip in tho
oast of Europo and came with him to
this city. He was very bu .y aU day
Saturday and yestorday iu making
sketches of animated and picturesquo
scene., in tho harbor of tho Pirceus
and in Athoms. All the episodes attending tlio wedding Herr Halsman
made sketches, The services at the
entrance to the cathedral were imposing, tliouoiinds of privileged spectntorj
woro ranged in semi-circular ascending
rows as at a J'hiatr.. Opposite the
main entrance the appearance of (his
vast crowd wns impressive iu the highest degree. The marriage Service is a
very long aud exhausting function and
tho kiug ordered the curtailment of it.
This wbb a very good action, for there
are un scats and the crowd of
persons present made the heat
very great and the iifcmdsphBt-overy uncomfortable. The nrmy of priestly
oliieera iu their rich rubes and paraphernalia made a gorgeous  spectaclo.
THK CJUEAT AOITATOIt.
London, Oct. 28.—Mr. Tillelt, tho
nble lieutenant of John Bums iu the
recent Tendon deckinen's striko, is
carrying on a vigorous socialist propaganda and work of organization in
thu large cities of the united kingdom.
His latest and most successful efforts
have been at Bristol. To-day he addressed a monster uiasa meeting of
workmen in that city. Competent observers place tho number of his listen-
on at 110,000. Tillett urged the benefits of combination, and held out glowing prospects of success based on ttie
result in the case of thedockmeu. His
remarks were not addressed to nny
particular class of workmen, but applied equally to all traders. It ia noteworthy that rogular radical cocinlista
do uot givo a hearty support to tho
movement initiated by Burns and
Tillett. A slight increase of wage., involving greater contentment ou tl:e
part of tho workers with the wagu pyn-
tom, haa no charms for out and out
socialists, who would on Ihe contrary,
bo arouso discontent with lhe wholo
oxi.-tiiig social fabric as to hasten iti
total overthrow, nnd the est nl>l ish ment
of universal co-operation, Bums mid
Tillett have, therefore, been almoat
read out cf the socialist party by reason of thoir having descended to practical methods.

building and dwellings is heavy, but
exact figures nro not learned.

London, Oet. 28.—Prince Hatzfeldt
and Miss Clara Huntington, adopted
daughter of Mr. C. P. Huntington,
wore married this morning at Brampton oratory. Tho coremony was neces*
Biu-ily semi-private on Recount of the
brief timo allowed for tho arrange*
ments and because of the absence of
many friends of the family from the
city. About a hundred ipecial guests
wero present in the oratory, which had
been sumptuously decorated with rich
draperies and growing plants. Prince
Hermann Hntzfeldt wns best mnn and

LABBY AMUSES THE SCOTS.
London, Oct. 20.—Henry Labou*
chore ia stumping Scotland with conaiderablo effect and hit speeches havo
elicited the general approval of the extreme radicals. Their programme, as
enunciated by Labou ch ere, ia now definitely formulated. It includes the
''one man, ono vot-?," principle, or
universal suffrage schemo of triennial
and not septennial parliaments. Disestablishment of tho church, nccom
panicd by ita diseudowment, the funds
now diverted to ecclesinatioal pur*
post a to bo taken for secular uses in
the ndmiuifftration of thu empire.
Such changes in the land laws aa
would lead, ultimately, to the extinction of groat land-owning families and
divide thoir tremendous possessions according to tho theory of more even
distribution of property. Mr. Labou*
chore was cheered fervently bri one
occasion when he declared^ "Wo will
mnko sucli a change iu land lav,1** Lhat
landlords will not recognize the country alter wo have put our hands in it,"
Another radical point is lho compulsory .nio of town lease holds for the

that He thall atand at the latter day
upon the earth; nn'd though after my
akin worms destroy this body, yet iu
my flesh thall I see God." Paul had
a certainty—"I know in whom 1 have
believed." "The Spirit bearoth witness with our spirit that we are born
of God." Somo reject Christianity becauso they don't understand ita mysteries, but they do not reject tn beliove

pursuits of life, which are alike fnsight.

Tho (■runt immigration   quostion
has long buen n mattor of   moment
with fnr-sightotl English politicians,
and the Pall Mall Gazette, referring
to tho subject, says   that   a   select
t-ommittfic of the house of commons
foresees   a time when   it will   bo
necessary to enact the alien   law of
the United States.    Tiie lurgo cities,
and e. pt-cinily London, may be said
to swarm with   foreigners  of  tho
most poverty-stricken and dtii-raded
cluss, uiiiny of thciu beinj; refugees
from  foreign   states,   for  political
plotting in their own   lands.    Such
men find a safe and convenient asylum in London, and not infrequently
repay tli. hospitality accorded thorn
by directing their genius in the direction nf upsetting the constitution
whioh protects them.   Of this class
Herr Most was a notable type.   A
walk from Aldgato through Whitechapel, Middlesex street and Houud-
sditch. taking in, of course, the adjacent alloys during the perambulation, rfivsals to the observant tourist
a large  area inhabited entirely by
an immense population, all, or nearly
nil, of whom are foreign Jews, most
of whom can speak not a word of English, and half at least of whom sppak
dialects which perhaps twenty others
in a population of  5,000,000  souls
can barely understand.   This latter
statement is   literally true, as   the
ease of Lipski, tried for niurder  a
few  years  ago,   proves.      Lipski
apoku a mixturo of Polish, Russian,
and low German, a dialect known as
Yeddihli, and when put  upon   trial
it was   with the   greatest difficulty
that any porson in the   metropolis
could   bo   found with   a   sufficient
knowledge of this tongue to be able
to interpret the    evidence for   tlie
benelit of the   prisonor.    A   school
teacher  in  Whitechapel estimates
that in a population of 7^,000   persons, 35,000 are foreigners, and   in
Lower Hamlets 75 per cent, of the
population mny he put in   the same
cutogory.    Hoxton, Shor (-ditch, and
in fact tho whole of the east  end of
Londou, is one vast foreign   colony,
burrowing   in  cellars like rats or
swarming more thickly than Chinamen do in our western cities, in the
rooms above.   Ten or a dozen   persons, of both sex and   all ages, will
find amplo accomodation for   sleeping, eating, working, and all other
purposes, in one  room twenty feet
by twelve, and when overy room in
a house is peopled in   like  proportion, and street after   street   is  so
crammed with the  human   animal
that thero is   positively no   further
room to squeeze in  another  specimen, it may bo imagined  that  the
sanitary condition of the   neighborhood is not all that could be desired.
This picture of the state of the east
end of London is in no respect  exaggerated, but, indeed, falls far short
of the horrible reality.   Tho   mode
of    living   of    these    people    is
extremely   wretched,    their    food
being  of the scantiest.   Tiiey are
willing    to    work    for    noxt   to
nothing, and tho consequence   is   a
tierce struggle for existence, a battle
for "daily broud,  which nono   who
have seen these people can over forget.   Tho gin palace is their home,
and who can   havo   tho   heart   to
blume thorn (although to this  institution is doubtless traceable   much
of their misery), for, as  a   scarcely
clad woman, with one young   child
at the breast   and  another   at lier
skirts, lemarked,   ''The stuft' helps
«s forget it nil now and then,"   And
so it goes tin, this   undying   battlo
{or tin I. irest subsistence, alternated
with the forgetfillness wliich a penny or two will purchase frnm tho gin
palace,   protected   by tho   state, a
life enlivened only by streot   lights,
brawls, and   hideous   murder, until
one   almost   repeat,   what   Victor
Hugo said of Pujis, that   if London
had   eye., ''every brick would weep
tears of blood."
The monarchical, principle does
not thrive on the virgin soil of tho
new world. L-ite events and portents in Brazil are furnishing fresh
demonstration of this fact, Baring
tho past two yearn republicanism
has obtained wonderful strength in
Brazil, Tho immediate cause oi
this is said to be tho great unpopularity of tho crown princess, Dona
Isabel, wife of Prince Louis of Orleans, Oomto d'Eu, This lady
gained the enmity of tho landed
proprietors and other classes among
the people by her share in bringing
about the sudden emancipation of
the slaves in May, 1888, without
allowing time for tho substitution
of voluntary for forced labor in the
fields. The crops were unusually
abundant, but many of them were
left to rot owing to the difficulty of
obtaining labor. The consequence
was that a very strong feeling wna
Aroused against the crown princess,
And incidentally against tho whole
royal family. The sparks of republicanism, which are to bo found iu
all monarchies, wero fanned into
flame, and for somo time past the
existence of .the empire has beeu in
danger. Tho emperor, Dom Pedro
II,. who succeeded his father so far
back as 1831, is  now  advanced in
years, aud the thought that his placo
will soon be filled hy his daughter
is ono that a very largo section of
tho people refuse to entertain, This
feeling has manifested itself in many
extraordinary ways of late, Only
recently, during tho ceremony of
conferring diplomas at tho imperial
scliool of medicine, one of the leading professors of the institution appealed to the emperor, in a speech
which was enthusiastically applauded, to withdraw into private life, iu
order to permit the establishment of
a republic. At the lust convention
of an organization of veterans, similar to the Grand Army of the He*
public in the United States, tlie
Oomto d'Eu, who presided by virtue
of his office as commander-in-chief
of the army, was greeted on taking
the chair with cries of "Viva la re-
publica." Subsequently, whilst visiting tlie northern provinces for the
purpose of carrying relief to the
famine hu (Term's- he was received
everywhere with hostility, and waa
accused hy tho press of making tho
journey solely to gain popularity.
Just beforo the dissolution of parliament last summer, too, one of tho
most prominent members closed an
eloquent speech with the cry, "Down
with the monarchy ! Long live tho
republic!" and was tumultously applauded by a large number of his
hearers. These incidents illustrato
the depth and extent of republican
sentiment in the empire. Tho
enemies of the monarchy are to be
found chiefly among tho landed proprietors and agriculturists, and the
traders and merchants. The press,
too, is largely on their sido, every
paper in Rio do Janeiro, with one
exception, professing tho most ar
dent republicanism. So far has tho
movement gone, in fact, that a candidate for the position of first president of tho republic of Brazil has
been selected, aud tho emperor is
almost daily appealed to in tho press
to abdicate in his favor. The government, realizing its danger and
that of tlio monarchy, wont to the
people at the elections last month
with a programmo specially designed to win them hack. It promised
universal suffrage, free education,
the autonomy of provinces and municipalities, absolute freedom of
creed and conscience, reorganization
of the senate, abolition of customs
duos on exports, increase of railroads and other facilities for transportation, and the creation of land
banks nud credit establishments designed to afford financial aid to the
farming, manufacturing, and trad-
classes. This liberal programme
probably had something to do
with the result of tlio elections, which were overwhelming
in favor of tlio government, not
withstanding the increasing republican sentiment. Good authorities say,
however, that tho government victory
wii3 more largely due to judicious
manipulation of patronngo, and to
the display of military forco throughout (he campaign, Such means of
achieving success will naturally havo
tlio ultimate effect of stimulating
rather than discouraging republicanism, The position of thn government, notwithstanding its apparent
strength, ir thus really precarious,
for, in the present temper of the
people, any arbitrary proceeding is
almost certain to lead to revolution.
The chances are considered to be
ten to one, at all events, that the
ompiro will not outlivo tho present
emperor, and ho cannot havo a very
long lease of life.

The New York Press says that
the heads of the Vanderbilt family
are aa literally immersed in business
affairs as nny tallow chandler within a milo of their magnificent homes.
They work as many hours a day as
their father did when conductor on
a railway, and almost as mnny as
-their grand-parents when the one
poled a ilatboat and the other tended bar.
Edison, discussing the electric
light wire danger, says that "low
pressure is tho only remedy." Pino
ing the wires underground will result eventually in driving the danger
iuto the manholes, stores and houses.
High pressure currents are used
solely to pavo investing in copper
wire, nnd therefore tho companios
who refuse to adopt low pressure
are saving monoy at the oxponso of
life. 	
In Louisvillo, Ky., a few days ago
thoro was a strango proceeding in

had died without issue, and in such
oases tho Mosaic law requires that
his brother shall marry tho widow
and raiso up children in tho name of
tho deceased. But in this caso tho
lady objected to marrying the brother. The only lawful alternative
was a divorce, and tho coromony of
divorcing the woman from her dead
husband was performed by two orthodox rabbis, who wero summoned
from Chicago for the purpose.
Thoso who attended to witness the
strango sceno wero charged 25 cents

AN INDIAN'S WRATH.
It Almost Results lu the Death
of Mother and Babe.
Hevoral years ago my husband built and
conducted n hotel for tho ancomniodation of
the miners and teamsters nt tlio terminal
point of ouo of our California railroadB.
Like many othor small towns in tho north-
i-m portion of tho Stato, it boosted of an
Indian rancherie, or sottlemont, within its
ruviv iimictitB, the half civilised inhabitants
'if wliich played n more or less important
part in Its local history, With fow exceptions they woro a moderately peaceful, industrious community—tho men spouding
thoir time ln bunting ana Ashing, and the
women doing tbo drudgery, such as procur*
ing fuel for thoir fires, the laundry work of
tliolr white neighbors, eto. Every now and
then, however, the wild naturo of the red
man, either through the medium of firewater or Intense passion, would become
aroused, and at suoh times Crimea of varying degrees of enormity were almost certain lo bo the result.
Wo bad ono child, a bright littlo fellow
about two years old, who, by reason of his
i-utt1, babyish antics, bad become a great
favorite with the patrons of the hotel; and
thoy, as a token of their affection, presented
him on bis socond birthday with a diminutive iron bank, ln whioh eaoh of the minors
aid teamsters had dropped a ailver dollar.
A™ day after day came and went, dollar
aftor dollar found its way into tho little
troaaure-box, till it became so heavy that
imiiy could no longer lift It, and I placed it
fcr safo-keeplng upon a bracket in my
(lrt-'HSing-room.
Ono evening, after old Julia, tbe Indian
woman who did our laundrying onco a weok,
had performed her usual hard day's wash*
ing, it occurred to mo tbat I had dono a
vory careless thing in permitting her to go
into my room for tho soiled clothes, and,
knowing the propensity of hor race to steal,
I ut once proceeded to ascertain whothor
any thing was missing. Baby's bank was
gone! Old Julia hnd stolen It.
It was too lnte to do any thing that day,
but early tho next morning wo had thoir
hut searched, with tho result that fragments
of the broken bank wero found, but no
money. They woro bountifully supplied
with provisions, howover; an inquiry at
ono of the stores elicited tho fact that a
targe bill of goods such as wejhad found had
boon purchased thero tho evening before
by old Julia and hor spouse. Tho woman
was accordingly arrested, and, after being
convicted, was sent to the county jail ln tho
adjoining town for a term of three months.
Many predicted that this would not bo the
cud of the affair, ns the woman's husband
was a dangerous character, and might seek
to avenge his wife's Imprisonment; but
noither my husband nor myself shared
their fears, and tho matter was forgotten,
utter a day or two.
Ono day, about n fortnight after Julia's
conviction, 1 was assisting the dining-room
girls to prepare tlio table for luncheon,
wbon suddenly tho Bound of a low, gutteral,
threatening voico at tho window drew my
attention. Looking up, startled and frlght-
L'lu'd, I beheld a savage, hideous-looking
Indian glaring in at me. It waa Indian
Jack, old Julia's husband.
Booing my frightened look, he advanced
still closer, put his swarthy faco In at the
open window, and, shaking hie fist at me,
gnmtcd out: "You no give me book my
.Julia, me kill you pretty soon!"
I had him driven off at once, and as I
watched him slowly making his way baok
to tho ranohorlo on the river bank half a
milo to the rear of our house, and saw his
threatening, angry gestures, I confess I
.vu. badly frightened, Thia feeling soon
woro off, howover, and as my husband was
inclined to think it no more than a game of
bluff, bis visit was quite forgotten by the
timo luncheon was over.
That afternoon the table-girls went out in
the woods for ferns; the cook alio was out,
and rs my husband was seldom about tho
Iioubo oxcopt at meals, I was for the timo
boiiip: alone. To while away the time I
picnod up a papor, and was just boooming
interested lu some article, when I was
starUod by a loud, frightened scream from
my littlo boy, wbo was playing iii the bock
yard. Springing up I ran to the window,
just in tune to soo Indian Jack snatch up
my child in his arms, and hasten away in
tin* chaparral. A terrible, frlgbt&illbought
instantly flashed through my mind.
ho would pause, look back with an exultant;
devilish expression upon hiB hideous face
and thon swagger off again with u low,
gloating chuckle that pierced my heart like
a dagger,
In this manner tho race was kopt up unlil
his hut was reached, when ho bounded insido, closed tho door with a bang and then
locked it In vain 1 poundod upon the door,
begged, wept uud pleaded* tlio brute wbb
as iuiinovabto as a rock, and I could hear
my poor baby pleading in plaintive, wailing
accents for "mamma, mammn, miimin;*.."
Tiie sound of my lamentations attracted
tho attention of a score of half-naked,
sleepy-looking Indians, who rushed i ell-
moll from their cabins to Icnrn tlie causo
of the unusual commotiou, and to them 1
renewed my pleading. "Nosnho!" was all
I oould got out of thom, and Iroturiiotllo

sound oftho key turning in tho lot.t as I
was made a prisoner and tho feeble wail of
my child ringing in iny oars, I fainted—th.
intensity ot my mental anguish wus more
thun 1 could endure.
How long I lay thus I do not know, but
when I awoke to consciousness all wns
silent. I listened, but I could not heat' my
child's plainlivo cry In the adjoining hut.
A horrible thought Dashed into my mind:
Had tho flout on Jack killed him!
Hy distracted mind had not yet found tlio
answer whon tho sound of my door being
unlocked was heard, aud tho next moment
Jack onterod my presence, locking tho
door aftor him! I rushed toward hiin nnd
frantically grasped his arm. "My boy!
Whero is ho t What have you done with
him?"
Tho Indian   shook me   rudely away.
"Ughl" grunted ho. "Boy no goodi
Too much yah I yah I all time.  D— boy!"
I would not bo thus put off, and still assailed him with my entreaties. Ho endured
it wltl*. itolid indifference for several moments, and then, as If prompted by nn
uncontrollable Impulse, took one hasty
stride toward mo aud rudely clutched my
arm. "You tell jail man lot iny Julia como
back!" demanded he, savagely,
I told him I would do all I could, but tlmt
it was now beyond my power to effect her
rolcnso. *
The unswer seemed to goad him on to
greater fury; his grip tightened upon my
arm; his dark oyes omitted a fiendish,
wicked glitter, and, drawing from his belt
a iicon-etiged dirk, ho loaned over ino and
hissed:  "You lio, and Jack kill you l"
I saw the gleaming blado ascend und
hang trembling abovo mo, ond then, with a
loud, doBpairing shriek, 1 lost consciousness.
When I opened my eyes I found my husband bending over mo and a group of familiar faces all around mo, whom I nt ojioa
recognized ns tho regular patrons of tint
hotel,
Tho flight of Indian Jack and my frantic
pursuit hud been observed by somo men
working m a ("laughter-house near tho
rancherie, nnd, learning sonic thing wns
wrong, they had notified my htisbiiud, who,
Uh several miners, had rushed to my relief. My bnby-boy was fouud fast asleep in
Jack's cabin, whicli accounted for my not
hearing him when I recovered from my
swoon somo timo before.
As for Jack, alter being mauled lo tlio

It has been frequently remarked that
ovory soparato trado aud occupation has a
language of its own, built up Irom its
wants, and In tho main unintelligible 11
othor craftsmen. As a mnrked example,
saya tho Holden Days, tuke tlio oil business
of Pennsylvania. This region has a very
peculiar slang, ono phrase of which lias
drifted Into genoral use.
"Ho's got tho sand," ns a synonym for
nerve," had its origin In tho oil country.
In an oil-well evory thing depends upon tho
suitd.
"Tho sand" Is the rock In which thu oil is
found, and on its quality depends tlio production of tho woll. If no Band Is .found,
tho well ia nt onco abandonod. If tho sand
Is good-thnt Is, of a coarso texture-the
well is moro than likely to bo n good one;
but if tho sand Is fino and hard, it is sure to
bo ti small well, if not nn utter failure.
Therefore tho Important question, wlion n
well Is boing finished, is "lias it got the
sand I"
"Hitting her jugular," moans to striken
well that flows immediately. "A duster11 is
a dry holo, and nbout twenty-five percent, of
all tho wells drilled are dusters. "A
spoutor" is n flowing woll, and "a roarer"
Is a largo gas well.
"Spudding" is a term usod for drilling
whon the well is just started, Aftor tho
hole is deep onough to cover all tho tools, it
is called drilling. Tho drilling-tools of nay
well consist of several pieces screwed togothor, and henco aro called "a string of
tools."
Au operator never soys there aro twenty
wells drilling In a certain district, but
('there am twenty sots of tools running."
"The big holo" means that part oftho
hole drilled beforo the casing is put in.
'■'Shooting a woll" is tho process of exploding a torpedo in it to increase thopi-oduc*
tlon.
Tho "bull wheel" iB au important part of
tho drilling machinery of a welt, nround tho
largo wooden shaft of whioh tho drilling
cnblo is wound.
Tho "sand pump" is a valvo about six foot
long that is run into tho hole to pump out
tho drillings.
Tho "bit" Is simply lho drill, and tho
"rcamor" is tho tool which is ruu into tlie

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.
Ha hunted the stores all along the main route,
Say3 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.

('rut™'? In Animal..
A team of horses attached to a wagon containing two bales of hay, tried
to drag the vehicle up McKenzie street
this nfternoon. Tho load was not
heavy, but the horses were evidently
unablo to copo with it, in fact they
seemed completely tired. Tho driver,
to remedy this dofecton tho fart of the
horsos, laid on tho whip unmercifully.
Several starts were made, tho usual
result beiug that tho wagon slipped
back a yard or two. Soveral gentle-
mon expressed themselves strongly on
tho subject, and said it was ono of the
worst cases of cruolty to animals thoy
had aeon in a long time. No polico

been promptly put to tho disgraceful

Auditor Challenge.
Tho lacrosse match of Saturday did
not givo much satisfaction to tho
people of the Royal City although it delighted many hundred Vancouvorites.
But for the fact that Culleh's lacrosso
broko it is hardly possiblo that Vancouver would have scored during tho
match. However, tho match was decided a draw and it remains with tbo
teams to fight the battlo over again.
Tlio Westminster mon nro not content
to allow the championship to remain
disputed and accordingly havo decided
on tlio following ohallengo which will
be delivered to-night:
A. B. SuOKTilKt), Esq., Secretary Vancouver Lacrosse Club, Vancouver,
Sm: On behalf of tho Wostminstor
Lacrosso Club I hereby challenge the
Vancouver club to play a match ior the
championship of the province in this city
on Thursday, Nov. 7th, at 2 o'clock p.
m, rain or shine, on condition that no
now men bc added to cither team, except to replace those who have beeu obliged to return to the Northwest; that
the referee and umpires he the same, and
that the Alliambra cup be not played
for. If above date is not convenient wo
will play your dub on uny day within a
reasonable period.
Should your club refuse to accept this
challenge within three days from date, I
will claim for the Westminstor club tlio
championship of the province,
J. Jt. roLbEV, Captain.
This will settle the matter ono way
or the other. If Vancouver wishes to
retain the championship it can only do
so by defeating Westminster in tliu
Held. Tho conditions aro fair and
reasonable, and no just exception can
bo taken to them. Let Vancouver
come to tho scratch and havo the chain ■
piouship settled in a manly way; Westminster will claim tho honored title
with great roluotanoo should thero bo
no match.

engaged in work at Fort Rupert aud

was met with on tho trip, the run
down boing delightful. Tho Maudo
brought back almost a full dccklotul of
totem poles, and other strange things
from the homes of tho northern Indians. Somo of the totem poles aro
very largo; certainly thoy aro tho largest and finest over aeon Jiero. Capt.
John Irving, Oapt. Cur roll and Mr. J.
A. Laidlaw won: round trip pnHEongers,
it being understood that their trip
north waa for a dual purpose—of looking up new coal mim s nnd prospecting
a favorablo spot for tho location of another cannery noxt season. The down

packing factory—by ft Winnipeg gentleman named Knight. Tho buildings
will bo erected at A. L. Fortunes

in about one month's time. Mr.
Knight, besides packing pork in barrel-?, will euro and smoke hams, and prepare thu genua hog in a variety of forma
for thu market, This industry iaau im*
portant ono for tho district, as it will
open a profitable homo market to tho

raising of hogs on n largo scale, aud as
it ia posaiblo to extend tho businesa to

CORRESPONDENCE.
Sir. Cunningham'™ Veracity.
Emtob Columbia™*—™?™';—You printed ou Friday a letter from Mr. Thomas
Cunningham, in which ho states that
"parties working in the interest" of Mr.
Corbould aro circulating a report that he
has agreed to withdraw in that gentleman's favor; and Mr. Cunningham proceeds to denounce the roport as a discreditable election dodge, and states that ho
was asked to withdraw and emphatically
refused to do so,
Now-1 wish to Use no hard words, and
to tho first charge simply Bay, it is not
the truth, aud onalleugo Mr, Cunningham to produce his informant.
As regards tho socond charge, the facts
aro these: Mr. Thos, Cunningham, iu
conversation with me, boforo tho requisition to Mr. Corbould was circulated,
rolutilecred to retire if Mr. Corbould
camo out, saying ho would hold up both
hands for him, or words to that effect.
After the requisition to Mr. Corbould
was started, Mr, Gamble antl myself
waited upon Mr. Cunningham, ?to( to ask
kim to retire, but to givo nim a chance to
keep his voluntary promise, and then ho
did emphatically rcfuso to redeem that
promise, a course of action which did not
greatly surprise us.
I then naked Mr, Cunningham, in the
firoscnco of Mr. Gamble, whether or not
io had voluntarily told ino that if Mr.
Corbould would como out ho would retire, Ifo at once said; "Yes, I did say
so; hut I won't do it now." Wo then
left him, saying it made no difference.
I will leave tho public to judge who
has acted di.creditably.
Mr. Cunningham bus published just
enough of tbo truth to mislead.
