By their accepting of their share of the

Jesuits before their Mipprrs km. Mr.
Mercier proposes to recoup himself

jugs against thu Dominion government

TITLED CRIMINALS,
New York, Nov. 15.-Tho World's
London cable quotes Liibouchere's
Truth an follows: "Law must be
equally administered, if not iu Ireland
at least in England. A short time ago
several telegraph boys in Ihu neighborhood of Cavendish square were found
to be spending more money than thoy
earned; an enquiry was made by the
postal authorities and it was discovered
that the boys were supplied with
monoy by a band of "gentlemen," who
met at a house on Cavendish street.
Fuller investigation disclosed what
took place in these gatherings of
"gentlemen" of England, but it is of
course impossible to more than briefiy
mention what occurred. The revealed
facts are in the hands cf the homo office in Scotland Yard, but as some of
the greatest hereditary names of the
country are mixed up in tho scandal,
au effort is boing madetosecureimmun*
ity for the criminals. Indeed, I mn
credibly informed thut the home office
is throwing obstacles in the way of
prompt action on the part of Scotland
Yard and trying t _ get tho persons concerned out of the country before the
warrants aro issued,
Tho fall of Louis Philippe do Pras-
lin wna caused by his having murdered
hia governess, but the Duo's crime
compares favorubly with that of these
titled miscreants.. Very possibly our
government of the classes is uf the
opinion that tho revelations which
would ensue were tho criminals put on
trial would deal a blow to the reign of
the classes, and to the special influence
of tho aristocracy. Let them, however,
understand that they will not be
allowed to protect their friends. It
wuuld bo really too monstrous if crimes
which, when committed by poor, ignorant men, lend to non toners of penal
servitude, woro to be done with impunity by those whom the tnry government delights to honor. The
mimes of th. telrgraph boys are known;
the name of the peraon who let the
houae in Cavendish street is known,
and the names of those who frequented
it are known. 1 warn Mr. Matthews
that if he do.:- not take action in this
matter there will be a heavy reckoning
when parliament meets. It is full
timo that the severest examples should
bring home to all minds the fact that
there are cortain foul crimes, too pre*
valent of late by all accounts, that we
cannot tolerate amongst us, _ unless
London is to be regarded aa a disgraceful city aud held up to tho opprobrium
of modorn civilization. I have no sott
of sympathy with vigilanco committees
and other such privato censors of mor-
uli*. but between their prying action
and the home oflico'u action in impeding
the polico and warning high born
criminuls to get out of reach ot the
jurisdiction of British courts in order
to siiyo them from prosecution, thero is
a wide difference.
The World's London cable states
tliat there are only three names safe to
mention now, and thoy are, Lord Arthur Somerset, Lord Ronald Gower
and Lord Errol, Equerry to Prince
Albert Victor; but the names of moro
than righiy prominent persons are in
j-u-.session of the police and the home
oflico. A prominent Scotland Yard
man is quoted n. saying that under the
existing laws it in practically impossible
to secure tho conviction of tho guilty
parties in this scandal.

Columbia. Tho letter states that one
Jamos Able, who mysteriously disappeared from Drayton thirteen yean
ago, had been murdered and his body
thrown into a woll, which has since
been filled up. The lottor gives the
names of tho murderers, but tho wo*
man refuses to disclose them. From
enquiries wliich have been made in thii
city it appears that suspicion rests
with a man who was married to thi
murdered man's step-daughter.—

London, Nov. 10.—-Tho progress
of the liberal party toward genuine
aud far leaching reforms and the acceptance of a great part of the radical
and socialist programme, seems to be
astonishing some leaders. Mr. Gladstone is the exception to this, for ho
has long known that some of the
points made by the more noisy and
radical sort of reformers are good, and
ought to be adopted in some measure
by the nation, only it is difficult to
separate good from bad when they are
jumbled together in the fiery imaginations of fanatical agitators. Sir Wm.
Harcourt haa already announced hia
wholesale approval of the new liberal
programme, whioh embraces reforms
in all directions where needed, and
rejects and repels violently thepurposes
of socialists and radicals. The new
platform includes the transfer of rates
from tenants to owners of the soil,
whioh seems to find favor with moderate men of all parties; equal taxation
of real and personal property; enfranchisement of leaseholds, and a one
man, one vote, system of suffrage.
Lord Roseberry, speaking at Bristol,
declared himself in favor of draitic
ieform inthe house of lords and the
extension of the powera of county
councils, so as to develop their demo
cratic character nnd mako them more
truly than ever direct representatives
of the people.
The liberal union has prepared a
party platform which will be offered
for tho approval of the National Liberal Federation at its coming meeting.
This platform will bo the basis of the
party fight nt the next general election. It is understood tnat the platform contains planks referring to the
housing of tlie working classes, the
extension of the factory acts, triennial
parliaments, abolition of taxes on toa,
oi'ffeo and cocoa, taxation of ground
rents and land values, payment of salaries to members of tho house of commons, and giving to the county coun*
cils power to control the police, liquor
traffic and gas and water supplies.
The platform also gives home rule to
Ireland in so far as special reference
to it is conoorned, but the reference
suggested is that home rule is the central and most important point, and
that Irishmen may confidently rely
upon the Liberal party to pursue the
path of justice to them unflinchingly.
The SLJamet' Gazette warns the conservatives that the Irish question, of
which the country is heartily weary,
will be put out of sight for a time, and
that the radicals may swoop the polls
under the social reform banner.

When the action of the counoil nt
its special meeting on Thursday
night, in nominating ten men for
water commissioners for tho ensuing year, comes to be properly understood, it will bo found tlmt a
wiso precaution was taken in tho
public interests, and that, although
the action may be considered by
some as trenching upon the privileges of the ratepayers, it wus done
with the best of motives and for the
protection of the interests of the
citizens. The council was perfectly
within its powers in doing ns it did,
and it is important to note thnt the
great majority of the board was in
favor of the action. It wiU be seen
that tbe council has merely nominated ten men, from whom the
ratepayers will havo the opportunity
of electing three for water commissioners, next month, cotemporane-
ously with the civic elections. Every
one will agree that, while other good
names might be mentioned, tho
nominations made by the council
are of the best, and three good
nnd sufe men are thoreby assured of
being chosen for tho important positions of water commissi oners, which
mi^ht not be tbo case if interested
paroles had the opportunity to elect
nominees of their own. The counoil, wo repeat, has acted in tbe best
int n-5ts of the oity in this matter,
and deserves the thanks of the citizen: instead of censure.
■A Philadelphia doctor is credited
wit-1 saying, recently:   "We (the
medioul   faculty) know now that
con ii'iiption is a tiout-ajjioug disease,
and we know how the contagion is
spei d »md how ordinarily it may bo
pre* en ted; and if people generally
woUd bo as careful to avoid   this
olas' of contagious diseases us ih-*y
are others which nro ubl so dangerous, tlio public health would be vast
ly improved.   In fact, it has   bepti
aire uly by whut little has boen doue
in tni;- mutter."   Tho doctor did not,
however, go on to   say   what   Imtl
been done in this matter, and it is
fair, therefore to suppose  tbat the
same methods should be adopted to
avoid contagion from consumptive
cases as in other contagious diseases.
The idea   lhat consumption is contagious is, as most people know, no
now thing.   Ten years ago Professor Gardiner, of  Glasgow   University, an authority on this disease in
its   different  forms,   said ; "As  a
faoulty we are not sufficiently   acquainted with the  disease   and its
workings to declare absolutely that
it is contagious, but in my mind,
judging from long experience, I havo
not tho slightest doubt, and I am
convinced that this disease has frequently been transmitted from husband to wife and vice versa, and
from a patient to a friend in the
habit of occupying the same bed, or
even the same room continuously."
The professor  invariably   insisted
upon having tho room   ventilated
from the outside, for a few minutes
at a time, several times a day oven
when the patient was entirely  confined to his bed.   No ono who has
had uny knowledge of the working
of consumption can doubt but that
the Philadelphia   doctor   and the
Glasgow professor are right.   Most
of of can tell of whole families swept
away by this dreadful scourgo, it
was the will of God ; consumption
was in the family, and each   individual member   was  doomed to an
early grave; hands were folded in
hopeless resignation; sister   nursed
siste" in close, hot rooms, from which,
us a rule, the fresh air of heaven was
caret ally excluded, and one after an
otiif.., notwithstanding what seemed
tho nio.t.  careful   nursing,   passed
a wai.   Of course it is not for a moment asserted that consumption will
disaj-piur, but now that tho medical
facul :y have declared, or practically
sanctioned the assertion that it is  a
contf gious diseaso, the prospects of
a decrease in the number of its victims are much groater, and if the relations of patients,   and   especially
those relations predisposed to tho
disease, can be brought to look upon
consumption   frnm   the contagion
point of view,   still better are the
chances for an  abatement of  this
scourge.
guests followed in a body, exhibit*
ing bottles and glasses nt, the poor
fellow's bedside, until in desperation
he cried, "Sir, your hospitality borders on brutality."
Early in the century it was customary, even at the houses of the
aristocracy, when the time came
after dinner for the bowl to be introduced, for a jovinl member of tho
company to propose as a toast "The
trade of Glasgow and ihe outward
bound." The ladies at once took
the hint nnd moved oil'to the drawing room. In those days, and many
years later, tho mnn who refused to
drink wino and preferred water was
generally considered a lunatic, and
vory few even of the Bobor had tho
moral courage to act up to their
convictions, and abstain, Tho fact
is, hard drinking seems to lmve been
regarded by our forefathers as a
sign of manliness and a certain dignity scorned to attach to tho powers
of a deep potation. To-day all is
changed, and the man who would
dnro to thrust himself in a drunken
state into tho presence of ladies
would at once, rightly, be deemed
unlit to associate with respectable
persons.
It is not merely that drunkenness
is no longer regarded as respectable,
but public sentiment has so veered
round on tho question that even the
moderate uso of intoxicants is rapidly decreasing, and to-day thore are
probably fewer drinkers in tho world
than ever before.   That a change,
so very decided, should have come
about, in the ingrained habits of
people,   within   so    comparatively
short a time, is cortainly somewhat
remarkable.   We   should naturally
expect that so pronounced a revolu-
in the habits of a race would take
many generations to effect.   That
the   change is appreciable is evidenced by the fact that the English
chancellor of the exchequer finds,
year by year, n growing doorcase in
tho revenue from strong drink.   Total abstinence has long ceased to be
a peculiarity, and it almost looks as
if in some places it will develop the
other extreme nnd become a rage, a
fashion.   In London, England, there
is u large temperance hospital, and
medical men   seem   yenr   by   year
more emphatic  in their strictures
on the habit of drinking even in
moderation.    In fact, Dr.  Norman
Kerr, a great authority, goes even so
far ns to assert that the moderate
drinker does himself more injury i'i
the long run thun the man who now
and again give,   way to periodical
"sprees."   In bIioH, it may  he ns-

The convention of the W. O. T. TJ.
in this city remind, us of the im-
nienso strides which tempcrunee hus
made in publio favor during tho
past two generations. At the beginning of tho century, even within
the memory of men yot living, hard
drinking was considered not only no
disgrace, but a positive qualification
for good society, Indeed, a man of
sober inclinations, was often placed
in a very awkward position by tho
very faot of his sobriety. In tho
days of three bottle men, the person
who refuied to mako a beast of him-
self was often put to positive outrage by people who did not know
the difference between hospitality
and ill mannena, Thus Dean Ramsay relates how a London merchant
itolii away from the table of his host
and went to his bedroom when the
drinking became furious.   But the

Measurt-unsiits of a quarter of million of soldiers have shown thut
mules do uol reach adult aye until
about 28, and Prof. Shaler. obsui*
vations at Harvard prove that full
mental posves- is not reached before
25.
The simple method of treating
drunkenness practiced in Norway
and Sweden is reported to be verv
effective. Tho inebriate i.i placed ill
confinement, and fed only with
bread soaked in wine, which in eight
or ten days creates a positive loathing for strong drink.
A German authority allirms that
oaks are more frequently struck by
lightning than beeches becauso the
leaves of the boeck are covered with
a fino down whioh is a better conductor of electricity than the smooth
leaves of the oak. Experiments
with electrical machines confirm the
theory.
A Dictionary op Electricity.—
Electrical prgress has been so rapid
as to develop a bewildering vocabulary not found in the latest revisions
of tho great dictionaries. This mul
titudo of now words is a source of
much proplexity, and many a puzzled ncsvspaper reader will bo glad
to know that a "Dictionary of Eleo
trical Words, Torms and' Phrases"
has been prepared by so eminont nn
authority ns Prof. E. J. Huston,
of tho Franklin Instituto, and is
published by the W. J. Johnston Co.,
IM., of New York. Tho work includes nbout 2500 svords, terms and
phrases, whoso definitions are mado
clear by many illustrations, nnd by
a general statement of tho principles
of electrical science on which tho
definitions are founded.
Fin-Hole Photography.—In u
British Association paper, Lord
Rayleigh stated that the lirst camera
was a pin-hole camera, and that it
was shown in 1880 that a simple
aperture is as effective as the least
possible lens in forming an image,
provided only that tho focal length
is sutlicieiitly great. In some recent
experiments the focal length was
about nine feet and the aperture
one-sixteenth of an inch, and photographs taken on gelatine plates of a
weather-cock seen against the sky
showed an amount of detail not
materially less than that seen by sli-
root vision. It cannot bo claimed,
however, that photography without
a lens is likely to bo of more than
scientific interest, ns in most eases
tho use of a lens is a vast improvement

heir days of usefulness are considered
Hissed, and they are then withdrawn from

nd fresh and crisp new hills take their
ilm*'.. The average life of a bank-note or
-ovcrnmentnoteis a matter hard to de-
ormlno, says the Bt. Louis Republic. This
eponds entirely upon tho hands into wbloh
b fails and tbe numbor of times it is
assed out into circulation. Should tt
oine-into tbo possession of a miser and go
nto his strongbox, its life would be, of
lourse, muoh longer than If in steady use,
utupon an average a note is in circulation
nly six or seven years. Bills of small do-
lamination, ones, twos, fives and tons, are,
f course, worn out moro quickly than those
f larger amount. A160 bill would be care-
ally folded and put into a pocket-book,
.-hero a one would be crumbled up and
n into tbe vest pooket, along with tbe
ictnl coins.
Under the rulings of tbo Treasury De*
artment all sub-treasuries and designated
t .ositories of tbe United States are re-
j-red to lay aside all currency that bas be-
.mo worn to auy great degree and for-
•ard the same to the department In Wash-
i.',ton. This is at onco sorted as to Issue

All money of this oharactor, when with-

it Id frequently tbo case that ln somo oc-
ide-iit n parcel of bank bills Is but partially
o.-iroyod. An ond may bo charred off In a
ro or lu a hundred ways a bill may he
lade unfit for circulation. Should three-
fths of the original bill be preserved this
my bo sent to the Treasurer and it will be
aU-cmcd without question, but whon there
less tban three-fifths, but clearly more
inn two-fifths of tbe original proportion
unnlning, tbey are redeemable by the
ultcd States Treasurer only at one-half
ie face value of the whole note.
Should there be a loss of more tban two*
fths of tbo entire bill the Treasurer will
adeem the samo ab faoe value If tbe frag*
icntsaro accompanied by an affidavit of

iwledgo that the missing portions have

jr decide tbat tho evidence Is not

otcB which contain not loss than three-
fths of tbe original bill. Tho consignee
lust pay tbo cost of transportation for tbo
eturn of tbo sum allowed in tho redeem-
ng of defaced or mutilated money of any

Silver money has an obvious advantage

SMALL BUT WICKED.
— _4     .
low a Little Wretch ol __ Boy Broke Bis
Sister's Heart.
The compassion or the scorn with which
lit masculine mind regards tho female of
a _ race begins so early In life, says the
loston Courior, that it is most difficult to
ey whether It is the result of Imitation or
_ ono of tho gif ts ot Intuition. Tbe smalt
-feels himsolf superior to his littlo sis*
l-quito without regard to whether he or
hu Is tho more clover. He is ho and she ii
uly she.
A nmall &ve-yew*\& lad, la whom this
emu of masculine superiority was not
vholly lacking, was ono day arrayed in bis
rat trousers. Standing boforo his sister,
couple of years younger, ho drew himself
p for her inspection and thon proceeded to
ddross her to this effect:
"Kittle," ho iald, "you can't nover wear
rousors."
Uo paused, apparently to lot his words
»ke tholr full effect
"Kittle," he continued, "you can't nevor
avo a mustache."
Uo paused again and let this dreadful an-
ouncement In its turn oat into his sister's
out; then ho brought out the climax with
triumphant thrill io hll voice moroclo-
uent tban any words oould have been.
"Kittle, you can't nevor bo a man no-

WEDDING  CASKETS.
lldon Timo Marriages and tho Presents
Which Accompanied Them.
Wheli men stole their wives without the
'ormality of considering in the least the
feelings; wishes or preferences of tho
■idles concerned, thero was no thought of
iresenting tho bride with any thing stive
ho necessary utensils for housekeeping,
■aya the Bt.'Louis Globe-Democrat, ami tho
iromiso of condign punishment in case thoy
■zero not properly nud efficiently used.
V heu, however, marriage became a con-
■ract and was recognized as such, tho con-
ont of tho bride was an Important prollml-
ary, nnd was generally socurcd by gifts,
onetimes of nominal, ofton of real value.
As civilization changed tho conditions o™
life, tho married stato became much moro
-..pensive; tho wife becamo a drag on the
■-.st.uives of her iiusband, and then bexan
o demand that, instead of paying for their
■rives, they should receive somo coniponsa-
ion for being willing to marry. This ortgi-
latcdtho bride's dowry, on the prluciplo
hut as marriage Is a contract aud thn expo, pes of a married man nro far greater
.nun thoso of a bachelor, the brido should
-ontribute to the resources of tho household.
In ovory Welsh neighborhood, until almost tho inlddlo of tho present century,
-.here was a functionary known ns the bailor. Tho duly of Una Important official wna
-.o givo notico of an approaching marriago,
which ho diil by perambulating tho neighborhood and surrounding country announcing tbo festivities, inviting every body to
attorn]* and stating in pleasant Welsh dog-
(jet-el rhymes tlto important peoplo who
would bo present, the merits of the groom,
.ho beauty and graces of tho bride, and tho
abundance nnd delicacies of the viands that
would bo placed bofore tbo guests. Ho also
.orved notice on all persons indebted in wt filing gilts to tho groom and brido or to their
parents to pay up at once, the meaning of
.vhich peculiar dim will bo apparent iu tho
Ight of tho fact that on previous occasions
-ho parents of tho pair have contrluutcd to
the household effects of half the neighbor*
hood, and naturally desire a return.
On tho day of the wedding tho presents aro
laid out in rows on tables, andan auctioneer,
paid for tho purposo, attends and values at a
cash ratooverytblngthathas been presented. RecolptB in duoform aro given, aud in
case tho gift is not tho payment of a debt
similarly incurred, a roturn of similar valuo
oxpeeted whon a marriago takes placo
lu tho family of the donor. By this plan
tho drain on resources of families for wedding presents is, iu some measure, mado
good by a return, for among tho Welsh the
samo kind of article is, if possible, returned
when payment Is requested, bo that ho who
gives n pickle dish receives a pickle dish,
and to prevent amutlpllclty of picklo dishes
a consultation of neighbors Is generally held,
at which tho gifts lo bo mado aro determined.
Among the wedding presents, howover,
thoro i3 often ono which, from its peculiarity, is observable. H istv gift from
tho groom totho bride, and Is in tho form of
a small box, to contain auch littlo trinket**
us she inny have. Onco It was an Iiivat-iu-
blo accompaniment of a wedding, but. liko
tho bidding nnd tho bidder, it is uow falling
into disuse, and Is more raroly seen than
.veil In the middle of tho present century.
But three or four hundred years t-go the
wedding casket was as Important an aocos*
sory to tho ceremony as tho ring.
During the middle ages thoro were among
tho Kings and noblemen of Europe two
kinds of marriages—tbo ono iu which tho
wifo shared tho honor of her husband, ami
hor children Inherited hia rank and fortune,
f he had any, the other In which ho cave
Ms left hand during tno ceremony; his wife
was merely his legalized companion, her
children could not Inherit his property, nnd
sbo herself did not tako his liame nor share
his rank. The latter marriago was confirmed tho morning after Us celebration by
a gift—tho morgengaho—generally of deeds
to property, tho documonts being inclosed
u n small but valuable box. In passing, it
amy ho noted that many complications grow
out of theso two styles of matrimony, for
certain noblemen conceived the Idea that,
bosido a regular, right-hand wifo they wero
antltlcdS also to a morganatic or left-hand
spouse, If thoy wanted ono, Philip Land-
?ravo, of Hesso, ono of tho supporters oftho
reformation, was of this opinion, but being
_ man ot prudence, determined to take ecclesiastical counsel on the subject, and tu;
sordingly wroto to Luther and Molanch
'hon, requesting on approval of his cotirsc.
Clio question was exceedingly delicate,' for
■ho l.'.mdg.avowasii-itnman to bo trilled
villi, and threatened to appeal to tho Em.
oeroi*, woven totho Popo, in case of the re-
usttl of the reformers to aunctlon hts action
a tho proposed second marriago. In an-
twor, thoy, thoreforo, drew up a mostrc-
narliablo document, disapproving of such
nun-luges in gonorai, but confirming tho
■ct of Philip, who, thus fortified hy clerical
uilhority, ho married, radrghuatldally, Mar-
fuorito do Btual, nnd gavo her what was
tald lobe the most boautltul wedding caskot over seen In Germany.
In thesoduys tho wedding casket was for
Jin bridegroom a solemn reality, for ho was
ixpecled not only to provido thb casket, hut
■lso to llll it with tho iiucBt jewels his means
could procure. When his specie., of gift
was found to bo too much of a tax, the jew-
ds wero omitted from tho programme, hut
.he box was retained and presented usually
with a single piece of money Inside, no symbolic of "all tho worldly goods" with which
the groom, evon to tho present day, Is supposed to ondow his brido. Tho museums of
Europo contain many cf theso wedding
caskets, thoro being no llttio variety In
their material, form ond manufacture In
the fourteenth century thero was an idea
prevalent In most parts of Europe tbat at ti
ivcddiug tho nature of tho groom's occupa*
.Ion should ho symbolized in somo way bj
'.he surroundings. Thus, tho carpenter, in
.vulklng Into tlto church with his new-found
reasuro, promenaded ovor shavings and
chips which woro strewn on tho pavement.
The shoemaker had a friend proccdo the
jovial party, carrying n pair of shoes on a
pole) the tanner had an untuuncd hldo
borno-ntha van of tho littlo procession;
the rapemnker a coll of his own ropo; tho
hlacl'smlti. was preceded by his anvil, on
which members of tho company from timo
to timo enthusiastically performed
AARON'S  WEDDING  SUIT.
It Was Just as Good as Ills Mother could
Afford to Uur,
Paronts aro sometimes loath to relinquish
their parental authority, oven When their
sons und daughters nro men and women,
and ought to bo learning to think and act
for thomsolvos, Buys lho Youth's Comnan-
ion, A tall, nwkword and painfully ii undent young mun of twoi.ty-ono or twenty-
two years wont Into a clothing storo, accompanied by n short, net ivo and keen-eyed littlo woman, whose self-possession was per*
feet -.
"Let us seo Bomo blaok suits of some kind,
something not too high, nor yit so cheap as
to bo good for nothing,", said the woman to
tho clork. dutt*
"Yes, ma'am.  Is tho suit for this 3*011 tig
ani"
"Yos, It's for him. ' Vo you any Idoa 'bout
what you want lu the way of a suit, Aaron !"
"I'd liko ono of them shiny block suits,"
replied Aaron, meekly.
"Well, I don' know," sold the mothor,
with a shako of hor hoad. "I'm doubtful
bout thom woarln' woll, an' Ih'llevo I'd
bettor git you a good caasimcro."
Tho clork led tho way to a counter piled
high with Inexpensive black suits, and tho
mother began: "How'd you Ilka this,
Aaron 1"
"I don' know."
"Welt, look at it, boy, and aoo whothor
you think you'd liko It."
"I guess so." ta
"Do you liko this ono any better!"
"I don'know ns Ido."
"Woll, I want you to mako up your mind
now, and not go to wlihln' you'd got sumo.
thlngolsons soon as you git home."
Tho amusement of tha clork was Increased
whon, after carefully examining suit nhei'
suit without coming to i. decision, tho old
lady said:
"You may show mo something a lontlo
mltn belli.'.i nny of those. I wouldn't bu
so porliklcr, but It's Ids woddin' milt I'm

The lllch glrllie Mnile by James Dunn
CUve. Ureal Results.
Mr. James Dunn, who made tho
lucky atrike on Siwash creek, near
Yale, last summer, waa in the city to-
dny nnd gavo us a call. Mr, Dunn
left camp ou Saturday last to visit the
coaat and purchase supplies. Mr.
Dunn holds two claims, a placer und a
mineral, nnd ia working both. The
placer claim is rich, but vory hard to
work owing to tho roughnosa of tho
bottom of tho crook, which ia literally
a bed of boulders. Mr. Duuti ia washing with sluice boxea, but theso do uot
give aatiafactory results, and bo will
build a large Homo next Bummer,
whon tho gravel will be much moro
cheaply nud easily handled, and thus
yield richer returns. In n little Icbs
than three montha ho took onough
gold from tho placer claim to pay nil
running expenses for tho rest ot tho
season. Whilo prospecting on Juno
4th Mr. Dunn had tliu good fortune to
strike n rich,gold-benring lodgo, showing on tho cropping three feet of solid
oro, with a foot of black pulp on each
wall. The ledge hus been traced the
full longth of tho claim, a distance of
1500 feet, and aa far as it was traced it
gave tho sumo evidence of richness.
Tho claim has buen tunnelled ou the
southeast end n distance of 40feet iuto
the mountain, nnd when another 25
feet have beon ruu it is oxpeeted tho
lodgo will be tupped, which, whon
reached, will prove whether or not
Mr. Dunn haa a bonanza in his olaim.
Dr. Bredemoyer, of Vnncouver, and
Thos. Price, of San Frnncisao, and a
Denver,Col.,expert, havo mado, in all,
eight assays of tho quart", from this
claim, the lowest assay showing $301
to tho ton nnd tho highest $1100.
Theso figures are immense, nnd should
tho lodge on development pan out as
richly ob the croppings, the valuo of the
mine will bo something enormous.
Mr. Dunn has 12 tons of oro on the
dump, which will be crushod by J. P.
Rodick, who intends putting ino 5*
stamp crusher in the spring. Tho
crusher is at present lying tit Seattle
awaiting shipment.
Tho trail to the mines is very rough,
and the greatest difficulty ia experienced in getting in supplies and machinery. If tho government will as-
sist, ovon in n small wny, in improving
tho trail, tho bcuelit to the miners
would be very great indeed. Hon.
Mr. Vernon i3 tho member for Yule
district, nnd it ia to bo hoped ho will
aco thut hia conatitucnls on Siwash
creek arc not forgotten when tho appropriations nro mado.
The saniplcB of ovo brought to Tuk
Columbian oflico by Mr. Dimo showed
tlio rich nativo gold visible to lho
nnked oyo, but when put under a
microscope it* richness waa moro
easily discernible. If Um ledge holds
out ns rich ua tho cropping! exhibited by
Mr. Dunn,the mino will certainly prove
an immensely valuable proporty. Tunnelling will bo steadily maintained
throughout the winter, or until such
timo as tho ledgo i-t struck.
Speaking of tho 15 oz. gold nugget,
raid to have been struck by n miner
on Siwush creek n few weeks ngo, Mr.
Dunn saya there ia no .ruth in ihe
tory. Tho largest nugget fouud this
season was about 2 o_._ in weight.

been added to our laurels. Tho great
Bush-MpLaan boat radii, . hich has
boon tho chief topic of interest during
the last fow weeks, has at Inst been do-
idt'd, nud tu no uncertain manner.
Bush rowed in a 105 lb. boat, whilo
McLean's weighed 155 lbs., which wna
fnr from being an advantage. The
nice was rowed on the Arm, tho courso
being a fairly good one, but n littlo
narrow nt aomo places. Tho betting
on the result, was nearly oven, but inclining slightly iu fuvor of McLean.
The men got nwny well together, but
Bush made the speedier start nnd was
soon iu the lead, which hu maintained
for some distance. At the railroad
bridgo McLcun overhauled lua opponent, but the bonis fouled, tho Royal
Oity man losing nu oar und displacing
hia eliding Beat. Beforo lie had recovered his onr nnd sent Bush bad got a
start of about 100 yards, which would
hnve discouraged must men, but not su
with McLean, lie nettled down to
work and pulled n long, sweeping and
beautiful stroke, overhauling hia opponent very gradually until at the
turning point tho men were equal, and
a fow moments after rounding McLoan
was in tho lend. This bo maintained
to tho finish, cm .sing the line ton
loii-jlha ahead. As ho pnsacd undor
tho railway bridge on tho roturn trip,
ho shouted, "hurrah f or Westminster, "
a cry that found little echo from the
spectators on tbe nbovo. A largo
amount nf monoy changed hands on
thu result.

Think It Out.
I'l-iTOit Columbus — -Sir.-—What aro
Scoullar and party after now? Wero
we not disfranchised by this pnrty at the
lost provincial olection ? Arc wo, as independent electors, going to bo always
bamboozled by a ring which haa no other
motive than personal aggrandisement?
God help the poor men of this community unless they begin to think. "Consistency, thou nrt a jewel." Scoullar says
we waut Corbould because the government wants hiin. What haa changed
thia individual and his pnrty ? Is it the
almighty $, or is it tho general welfare
of the community? Run your thoughts
back to tbe time when Bolo was the
champion of this pnrty, and what for ?
To serve the true interests of this city ?
Echo answers "No !" It ia all hypocrisy
—a synonym for tho dovil himself. Who
are the men backing Cunningham but
truo supporters of tho government, nnd
the true men of this city? Poor man,
independent man, look out! Open your
eyes, or bo quick to sell out, lest you
think too lato.       Respectfully,
No HuMiioo.
Unfair Criticism.
Editoii Columbian—Sir.—I do not
often tako exception to your reports of
my doings nt the Council meetings, but
ns the Truth hna, in its usual chnrittble
(?) way, tried to make a point against
mo, I fool, in justice to myself nnd
friendi-, I ahould explain what my. position on the said water commissioners by*
law really is.
If I Baid the peoplo were' 'scarcely competent," etc., 1 confess I put my meaning in nn nwkwnrd manner. I think I
explained thnt as the council bnd given
tlie whole wnter worka niatter full consideration, they would bo butter nblo to
judge as to who would he fit and proper
persons to act as commiasionors.
It will be generally conceded, I think,
that the council nominated ten, any
threo of whom could bo safely entrusted
with a matter of auch importance. Of
course, there aro other good and truo
men in the city who might havo boen
nominated, but to leavo tlio nominations
entirely nn open question, would be, to
sny the least, dnngcroiia. Tho couucil
hud no other wish than to protect tho interests of the citizens, and took tho
method adopted us n safeguard ngninst
any posaiblo mistake.
To mako a general attack upon my
fellow-citizens is not my stylo of doing
business—-neither do the majority of
them think it is. Gratitude is n virtue 1
hopo I poascsa. Tho electors hnvo repeatedly done mo honor, nud biuco 1881,
when first elected to the couucil, I have
nover betrayed tho trust reposed in me.
I am actuated by nono but honest motives, nnd I defy any ono to prove to tho
contrary. Perhaps when Truth becomes
better acquainted with me, it will criticize iny public actions more fairly.
Yours faithfully,
