LIBEL ADJOURNED.
London, Nov. 9.—Mr. Parnell'i
action for libel against the Times has
been adjourned until spring. Mr.
Gladstone, upon being questioned as to
whether his proposed Irish parliament
would have power to endorse Roman
Catholic educational institutions in
Ireland, said the Irish parliament
should not hnve that power und that
denominational education ought to he
abolished in Great Britain. But this
would not please sectarians of England
and Scotland.

London, Nov. O.—The active managers of the London theatres have
formed a olub society which is to be
exclusively of their own, The committee consists of Augustus Harm,
Abud, Holliugshead and Greet.
MR.  PARNELL'S HEALTH.
London, Nov, O.—The reports as to
Mr. Parnell's ill health are happily unfounded. He is in much better health
thun at this time last year und regards
thia coming session with moro interest
than any prcccdiug one of this parliament. It is his opinion that the government will fall, not, perhaps, in the
next session, but in that which follows,
Mr, Parnell seems to hnvo a very clear
opinion aB tothe present duty of the
opposition; that (he government should
now be resisted and opposed on tho
ground that it has no valid claim to
represent the country. It has never
represented Irelnnd, Scotland or Wales
and now that England too has turned
against it, the time has arrived when
quito at the beginning of the session its
claim tolegisluto for the people, who have
intimated a want of confidence, ahould
be stoutly denied. There is good reason to believe lhat theso opinions are
i.ot held alone by the Irish leaders,
but also by the liberal leaders generally, and that in February they will bo
acted upon with a viow to forcing the
government to make an appeal to the
country. It is already practically
agreed that at the opening of the session the wholo weight of tlie opposition
will bo given to the amendment to the
addresBdirectly challenging the position
of tho government.
WILL LIVE AT COBURG.
London, Nuv. 9.—Tlio Duko und
Duchos of Edinburgh and their
daughters have gone to Coburg. The
duke is preparing to reside there permanently,
THE PREMIER'S SPEECH.
London, Nov. 9.—Lord Salisbury,
speaking at tho Lord Mayor's banquet
in tho Guild Hall to-night, congratulated tho country on tho expansion of
its trade, warned tho tabor agitators
thnt in pursuing their courso they undertook a great roi-pouaiblity and advised tho employers to bo cautious, as
imprudence on thoir part would jeopardise their interests. The prosperity of
Ireland, he Assorted, was increasing,
and disorder was consequently disappearing. The government had not
indulged in any wild theories of Home
Rule, but wns ready to further any
practical and satisfactory policy for
Ireland'!- good, The government's
Egyptian policy remained unchanged, |
Egypt, st present, being unablo to pro-
tect herself without British assistance.
The tendency of Europe was peaceful
and the groat powers were of one accord
in wishing to avoid a conflict.
A RADICAL OPINION.
London, Nov. 9.—Noarly all the
members of the government attended
tho Lord Mayor's banquet to-day. A
number of other Tory members of par*
liamont are alao in tho eity, and those
are clearly of thu opinion (hat tho reverses which the government havo suffered in tho recent elections will incline the party in power to hold on
firmly to the ond. -'Two moro sessions and perhaps three" is the reply
in tho mouths of ministers to the question whether the government will re*
main in power. But when tho question is put to them, -'What will you
propoie or do in order to justify such
a retention of power?" there is no response. Exoept that something will
ba proposed about the Irish land question next session, there is a general
belief that Lord Salisbury and Lord
Hartington are both opposed to any
relaxation of the policy of coercion
and to any large scheme of local government. The heavy-weights of the
government are certainly disposed to
go with Lord Selbourno in objecting
to a very heavy programmo for next
session. Thore are minor members of
the government who think that there
will be do difficulty whatever in resisting such invitations as thoie of Mr.
Chamberlain and Mr. Courtenay to a
voluminous programmo. Tho Tories
do not think that any of the dissentient Liberals will really try to "bolt"
just yet. Such an attempt may happen, they say, later on iu the life of
this parliament when the critical time
of a general election is near at hand.
But for the moment the sentiment of a
common danger is upon all the ministerialist party and their tint impulse
ts to hold together and go on tor a
time. That the government will fall
to pieces whenever it enters upon a
new Irish policy, is an opinion on
which the leading Tories ana the lead-
ing Liberals and Mr. Parnell himself
aro all agreed,
FUNERAL SEBMON
Preached by (he Veaerable Archdeacon
Wood» oa the Late Kobt. DleklMti.
At Holy Trinity Ohuroh, yesterday
morning, the Venerable Archdeacon
Woods preached the funeral sermon of
tho late Robert Dickinson to a large
aud deeply affected congregation. Tbe
text was taken from Hebrews 4th chap.
9th verse: "There remaineth therefore a rest." The Vonerablo Archdeacon said: In the closing words of
chapter HI,, it is shown that entrance
into the rest of God stands over, remaineth, for the Christian. Our second lesson for this morning shows in
what sense we Christians enter into
His rest—the rest of God. The warning drawn from the 95th psalm against
hardening the heart is repeated—lest
a promise beingleftof entering into His
rest any should come abort of it. The
rest of God is explained to us—the
rest of the place where Ho dwells. His
rest: because it is which He enjoys.that
which He alone can confer. The promise is that there is to us admittance
to the enjoyment of peace aud rest
where God dwells. But there is added
very emphatic exhortation to diligence
in striving after it; let us Jabor, let us
earnestly strive. There is a rest, tho
attainment of whioh is worth all effort.
Many have failed of reaching it because
of their unbelief—that ovil heart of unbelief against which warning is given in
Hebrews HI chap., 12th verse—to there
is danger that we may fail, and failure
must be irremediably awful. Let ub
labor, therefore, to enter into that
rest.
Rest: Has it not been, is it not the
aim and hope and longing of the human
heart frum &» tt-our when the tint
lullaby soothed to steep the all hut. unconscious babe on its mother's breast,
to the hour when wearied by the labon
and conflicts and eesseless round of
toil which has worn out his life, the
man full of yean longs to lav down the
burden. The child looks on to the
day when as a youth he shall be freed
from childhood's cares and restraints,
and so find what he fondly hopes will
prove reit—only to find that yean
bring with them tasks of greater difficulty, mid work more wearying, aud
that he hu not yet found rest. But
when youth has merged into the freedom of manhood, then surely will
como rest! But manhood has
its yoke—Ood forbid that it
bo the yoke of indulged sin—by no
moans easy, aud its burdens far from
light; but when manhood ahall huvo
reaped the rewards of success, through
labor of whatever kind, of hands or
brain, or heart, then comes rest? No!
rest ts not yet reached, for the very
success whieh promised rest—and what
Bhall bo said of failure—has but multiplied labor, made the yoke less easy
and the light burdens heavy. But by
and by as age creeps on, when labor
and cares, when work and affain, of
necessity, cesse to occupy nan; at last,
will come rest. Why, then, are the
evil days, when men shall say I have
no pleasure in them, when the keepen
of the house shall tremble, and the
strong men shall bow themselves; when
fean shall be in the way, when the
graishopper shall be a burden and desire fail. Nol there is no rest this
side tho grave but to those who read
into the text, tho oonoludiug words,
"There remaineth, therefore,"* rest;"
but to whom? To the people of God,
To the people of God all time, all
labor, every burden, every yoke is
rest, else were Crist's own words without meaning: "Come unto Mo all ye
that labor and are heavy laden and I
will give you rest." He gives us burdens, but He gives us strength to bear;
He fits the load to the strength and
tho strength to tho load, aud gives
more power as he adds more weight.
Those who cheerfully boar the burden
He layvupon them aro brought near
to Him, and learning to know Htm
better, love Him more, They learn to
look upon the burdens He lays upon
them as pledges that He is tnining
them for a service of perfect freedom,
of perfect joy and of porfect rest. On
the other hand, bear the burden languidly, complainingly, murmur at having to bear it, and it will weigh you
down.
There Is a joy In sorrows borne
Where ttie Saviour trod,
Whon the path of pain Is worn
By the feet of God.
There Is a rest when hour by hour
As the will obeys
Comes divine almighty power
Falling strength to raise.
Let those who have burdens to bear—
and who ia free?—-pray for more faith,
more love, more hearty will to submit
to His will, more entire readiness to
say, "not my will but Thine!" and He
ill give you rost—rest here in this
life, rest when weighed down with
work and caro and weariness, rest when
tried sore with heaviest grief and deepest sorrow; rest to the heart whon even
tean bring no relief and sleep no for
getfulneis; rest when «hat seams a
dark impenetrable cloud seems to have
risen between you and all that wu
bright in the world. Rest and light,
Rest when hopo seems dead because
He yoar loving Father still, haa tent
Sou the message 10 hard for human
eart to bear: "I take away from thee
the dosire of thine eyea with a stroke."
Rest and light and peace; rest here in
this life, and in the life beyond. Who
ean find words to express the rest, tbe
peace, the victory, the gloiy.
Crowns for the valiant, to weary one rest.
God shall be AU and ln all ever blest,
St Paul speaks In calm, sober words
of sure confidence when he says, "to
die is pain." Gain! to exchange the
wearying strain of work for the
reward of work well done —tiie
watch and fight with sin—for the peace
and rest of righteousness—while he
looks forward to the resurrection as the
time of coronation, "Henceforth
there is laid up for me a crown of
righteousness, whioh the Lord, the
righteous Judge, shall give me at that
day."
It can hardly be but that the
thoughts of many have taken throughout the week that is past something of
the direction whioh is emphasized to
us in this second lesson for to-day.
You know how frequently from this
place I have urged the wisdom of accepting the lessons of eaoh day as the
Word's teaching in His own ichool.
One has been gathered to rest; one
whom we all knew and all esteemed.
The better he was known the mora he
was loved. 1 shrink from saying mueh,
lest penonal esteem and affection-
extending over many yean—tempt me
into exaggerated expression. WUl it
not bo enough in this church, and in
Mi's congregation, where, and amongst
whom, he has worshipped for so long,
to remind you of the honorable and
straightforward nun of business—of
the citizen always ready to advance the
welfare and true interests of your city,
at whatever cost of labor to himself,
even when those most intimate with
him knew how much he stood in need
of rest—of tho politician who sought no
bye ends, but acted always straight and
clear according to his convictions, ever
ready to give time and thought and
honest work when called on. To those
who knew him bett I need not, indeed, I could uot, speak fully of his
generous, ungrudging, unstinted, ever
ready help tu all in need. I do uot
think he knew it himself, for in such
help he only counted the need, never
the help, His loved ones, his own,
must always hold iu dearest memory
the devoted huBbaud, the affectionate
father, the true and trusted friend. If
iu a few words I tried to express the
unanimous judgment of all who knew
him, I think 1 might say that Robert
Dickinson was, in all the relations of
life, the best loved man in New Westminster.
"Much must be borne whleh Is hard to
bear,
Much given away whioh Itwere sweet to
Keep,
God help us all who need Indeed His care,
And yet we know The Shepherd l.veahls
sheep.'1
For myself I would like to say that
at a time when I waa not a little eut
down, troubled by many 01 inflicting
anxieties, it waa a bright gleam of sunshine to seo him kneel at the Lord's,
table on last Easter day, and h w his
hia presence at St. Marys, Sapperton,
cheered me in my new work when he
received from me what proved, I believo, his lut communiou. Mny we nut
hupe that tho "Comfortable Worda"
came home to him in power: "dune
unto me all ye that travail and ure
heavy laden and I will refresh yuu, I
will give you rest." His death wu
unexpected, but not on that account
mdden in the sense of not finding bim
ready.
To all each day of life leads on to
the day of death. How and when
eaeh is to go hence none but God can
tell. Man is sure of one thing—that
some time, some day he shall die. and
tho world with all its sorrows, all ite
joys, all its labon, all it. cares, all ita
successes, all its failures, shall be left
behind. Othen must die, but is death
appointed unto me ? Shall the sounds
of earth grow faint, while strange
voices reach me from another world?
Shall the spirit leave the body—helpless, still, deadl Shall friends think of
me as gone, and my place know me
no more forever? Yesl Au end is
coming to my life here, but not an end
of me—not an end of what I shall do.
I shall go on living and acting iu a new
state which shall not end.
Oh, let eaoh and all strive to die to
sin, to die in heart to all that barms the
soul. Let Christ be our life now, andin
the hourof death weshall fearno evil, for
He shall be with us and tnui. The lei-
son of the day is: "There remaineth a
rest to the people of God1' The leaion of the paat week, and of every
weok and of every day and hour is:
"Let ua fear lest a promise being left
us of entering into His rest, any of yoa
should seem to come short of it," and
again, "Let us labor to enter into that
rest."
Almighty and Eternal God, teach
me to live u one who must die; kill in
mo all that would kill my soul. May
my life on earth prepare me for life
with Thee; my work on earth for the
rest that remaineth to the people of
God.

It would appear that  tlio  Gov
eruorOeneral     during    his   tour
through the Northsvest   was the recipient of an  address, amongst the
numerous documents  of   welcome,
from the Mormons of tho Northwest
Territories.   The address svns kind
ly and loyal in its tone.   It declared
devotion tp her majesty the  Queen
and good feeling for Lord  Stanley.
"Our prophet Joseph," it  added,
"hath discerned that of all the kingdoms of the world, the British principalities, by reason of their high integrity and their judicial  purity,
will be tho last to fall; and it is for
this nason, as well as from  an af.
fectionate admiration of her own
womanly virtues, that wo  invoke
the blessing of heaven  upon  the
sovereign of these vast realms," His
Excellency's answer to the Mormon
deputation has been  made  publio.
The Governor-General, according to
t report of the  address-presenting
ceremony, "replied   very happily,
heartily welcoming the Latter-Day
Saints to Oanada, saying  that  tho
oountry was free to all   creeds, and
to as many of their  people  as  desires! to come."   An eastern cotem
porary thinks, not altogether  without reason, that there  is  considerable room for difference of opinion
as to the advisability  of  throwing
open the door and cordially inviting
the Mormons to come in.   If  the
Mormons are those of the non-poly-
gaoious sort, says our  cotemporary,
anil if, in addition, they we   peaceable   und    industrious,   Canadians
generally will not object to the hearty   welcome  extended   them, or to
the invitation offered to other Mormons to  make  this   country their
home.   But it is points.. out that,
although the Mormons in the Catia-
diai, Northwest have been officially
reported to  be  all   tmrd-workiug,
non polygamous set'ier.i, themselves
denying that they aro   polygamous,
it is tn be questioned if they are not
&iny;Iy holding the obnoxious doc-
1,1-iii.'ii abeyance  till it convenient
iiuti'nirivesfor puttus-* it   in practice.   To judge from tlse  frequent
printed ebulitions of the   impressible   Maitland  Stentsouse, whilom
M.F. P. for Oomox in this province,
and now high-priest of the   Worth
west   Mormon   colony, he, at any
rate, is determined to exercise   tho
salient privilege of Mormonism and
involve himself in a   double   knot.
The latest proposal   of   Ihe astuto
.teishouse, who, it jsppears,is still a
bachelor, is to take  unto  himself a
plurality of wives at onco and   thus
try and evade the technical objection
of tlse law against   bigamy.    Maitland will evidently bear watching,
and so, undoubtedly, will the entire
colony of his co-religionists  in  the
Northwest.   If they   can  be   prevented from transgressing the laws
of the country iu  the direction to
which  they   are most  liable, the
Mormons, with  their industrious,
hard-working habits, will be  an acquisition to the  Northwest.   Judging, however, from  the  experience
of our  American  neighbors   with
these people,   they  are  far  from
being an unmitigated blessing to
any oountry.

chosen. He is in the Tory net, and
will never be wanted again by
thorough-going Liberals. Hartington is too good a man to be lost for
ever to the Progressive Party, and
it is unlikely he will so far commit
himself as to take office in a Conservative cabinet Chamberlain is
the Judas of Liberalism, and the
Radicasl, whom ho has wantonly betrayed, will never trust him .as they
once did. He was once the grand
young man of the Liberal hope ; to
day he is hated by the rank and file,
distrusted by his late colleagues, and
despised by the Tories, who, now
they have no further use for him,
are only anxious to seo him shelved
out of the way. It seems as though
he perceives all this, for, like a libertine, one day all boisterous recklessness, the next depressed almost to
madness, he lirst of all dreams of a
great "National Party" (to he led by
himself of course).
"When none aro for a party,
Bnt all are for tlio stato;
When tlse rich man helps the ppor
And tlio poor man loves tlso great"
And then the vision fades, and ho
talks of retirement. Poor Chamberlain ! ho soems to liavo lost his
political balance ever since ho was
deprived of the support afforded by
Sir Charles Dilke's skirt tails. It is
a melancholy picture to see the man
who once was tho most advanced in
the conquering Liberal host, nosv reduced to such pitiable plight that
there are "none eo poor to do him
reverence."

The Liberal-Unionists are just
now discovering that, as an eminent statesman put it, "England
does not love a coalition," -Things
are rapidly regaining the old equilibrium, and already, practically, the
country is again Liberal and Tory,
lt is evident from recent speeches
that both Lord Hartington and Mr.
Chamberlain perceive, although they
refuso to own it, that Liberal-Unionism is un unknown quantity, except
on the floor of the House of Commons, and exists thero only by reason of thu Septennial Act, which
permits a member to sit long after
his constituents, have no furthor uso
for him. While the recent by-ulec-
tions have emphatically shown that
the opinion of the people Ib for
Home Rule in Ireland, the Tory
newspapers have begun to grumble
ominously nt the relative positions
of the two wings of the Tory-Unionist army, Their complaint is not
without nason. "Why," in effect
tay these prints, "why is it that our
side (the Tories) have to bear all
the blame . You Liberal-Unionists
who are helping us by your votes
ahould also share your responsibility by representation in the cabinet." liut the seeeders from the
old Hag are cunning as serpents, if
not quite as harmless as doves, and
hesitate before committing them-
•elves so far. There may como a
time, nnd before long, when ques
tiona of moment will open up. upon
whioh All Liberals who have a shred
of Liberalism left will be able to
fight shoulder to shoulder, and
should that day come, the men who
hnve sheltered themselves in the
fancied security of the Tory cabinet
will find it welt nigh impossible to
do »s they would wish. Just now
the liberal* Unionists appear to have
proved the truth of the adage that
"between two stools you are likely
to oome to the ground/' Some-
thing- however, has to be done if
theae gentlemen are to continue in
•political life.   Go-when hai already
SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
The oldest medical work, nn Egyptian papyrus dating from 1500

A now botanical garden iu the
Alps of Valais is situated on a cone-
shaped knoll about 200 feet high, at
an altitude above sea-level of moro
than 5,600 feet. Plants from all the
alpine regions of the globe will be

Mr. 0. R. Williams lias pointed

The latest report statea that
twenty-one observatories are now
engaged in tlie intrrtmtioniil under

hoped to finish tlm work in three or

A-i.-HE.vr Weapon.—The largest

Ali.i-._i-... Km*}*, to Oronstadt, It is
I't uast steel, weighs 235 tons, lias
a biinel 4u that long, ■> diameter of
ty feet in tlio largj^t pnrt, nnd
a boro of 13?* inches. Its rauge is
over 11 miles, and it will fire two
shots per minute, each shot costing
from $1250 to $1500. In a trial of
tlie war monster, the piojeotile—•_
feet long and weighing 1800 pounds,
and propelled by a chargo of 700
pounds of powder—penelruted 19£
indies and went 1312 yards beyond
the target.
Mental Capacity of Spiders.—
Experiments on the mental powers
of hundreds of spiders have been
made by Messrs. G. W. nnd E, ti.
Peckham. Evidence was given that
the faculty of smell is fairly developed in all but three out of twenty-six
species, but the position of the organ
of smell was not found and it is not
known. Loud sounds were apparently uuperceived j the Epeirids
were sensitive to the sound of a tuning fork, while the spiders thut do
not make wobs gave no heed to it.
Love of offspring was mnnifested in
all spiders by eagerness to receive
black cocoons within twenty-four
hours, though few recognized' them
nfter a longer period, and none seemed able to distinguish their own cocoons from another spider's or from
pitch-balls of the snme size. Sight
appeared to be good, though from
familiarity, only through touch, cocoons wero found with dilliculty
even when within three-fourths of
an inch. The color-sense seemed
fairly developed, with preference for
rod. The authors discredit, the notion that spiders feign death, uccep
ting Darwin'b explanation that the
habit of lying motionless has been
acquired in different degrees to serve
different purposes,
Oompaksskd Am PoH'Elt,—As the
result of detailed investigations,
Prof. A. B. W. Kennedy, h\ R, S ,
reports that the compressed air
transmission system in Paris is now
being conducted on a large commercial scale in snch fashion that a
small motor four miles from tho central station can indicate in round
numbers 10 horse power for 20 indicated horse power at tho station
itself, allowing for coke used to heat
the air, or for 25 indicated horse
power if the air be not heated at
ell. Larger motors may work somewhat more, and smaller motors
somewhat less, economically. The
present compressing engines nt the
central station indicate more than
2000 horse power, but the plant is
being greatly enlarged. Most of
the air supplied is used for working
motors, of which the great majority
are more than two miles away, and
of | to 50 horse power. A novel
feature in the use of this power is
that the exhaust can be mado to
supply ventillation and cooling.
This ia an important advantage for
any large city, but in tropical countries—where cooling appliances are
rather a necessity than a luxury—
we might have the apparent paradox of a motor worked essentially
for its exhaust, the work being a
by-product and tbe cold air the principal thing.

POR LIFE OR  DEATH.
Bow a Cholera-Strl-ken Soldier Obtained
a Drliik ln India*
I cumo to India in 185— aa a private la the
—tli regiment and my company formed part
of the garrison at Ar cot, saya a writer in
Blackwood's Magazine. Life in barracks in
India is very dull, and it wan with great
satisfaction that wo heard an order had
boon givon for our company to maroh to
Vulii.ro to strengthen the garrison there,
which had beon very muoh reduced by cholera.
It was then about the middle of March,
and consequently later than is usual for
moving troops, as the dayabegln to get very
hot on the plains in the Carnatio about that
timo of the year. But ours waa specialduty,
ami, as wo Bhould only faarch In the very
early morning, we did not fear the incon*
vonlonce of tho mid-day hoat.
It viae on the second day after leaving
Arcot that, late In tho afternoon, I was
listening to a description of Velloro by one
of our fellows who had been there, when
suddenly I felt spasms and sickness.
"Holloa I old fellow, how blue you look 1"
remarked a companion sitting next to me,
uud its ho spoke my comrades shrank ter*
i ."-"-stricken from me. It needed no doctor
to toll what was the matter, The cholera
bad seized mei
I was hastily conveyed to tho temporary
hospital, where our assistant surgeon al*
ready had several casos of the disease under
treatment, andlwaslaidonacbarpoy. I rapidly passed from tho tlrst to the seoond stage
of tliat malady, and by nine o'olook at night
tho Incessant vomiting and purging had reduced mo to a condition of weakness ap*
proaohing insensibility. 1 was consumed
by a burning, raging thirst, but the dresser
disregarded all my entreaties for a drink of
water. The system of treatment for cholera in thoso days allowed tho patient nothing morothan just to have thollps moistened
occasionally with weak brandy and water,
and this simply aggravated ttio torture of
thirst. Nowadays champagne is given, and
tlit-sufferer Is allowed t. drink pretty freely.
Tlio hospital was, of courso, only a pandal,
hastily constructed with palmyra-leaves,
wllli a largo cusous-mat at the entrances ai
each end. Two largo chatties of water
were placed just outside eaoh entrance.
I had bogged, sworn and menaced
at intervals, but no one paid the
slightest hoed to me, and I was
sinking into that condition of torpor
wliich is the immodlate precursor of the
third an d fatal s t ago of cholera, when I heard
voice™ in the pandal. The assistant surgeon
was malting his last round for the night,
accompanied by the hospital-dresser. With
a violent effort I roused myself, and eagerly
listened for thoir approach, I wanted to
lieu '■ iny fato pronounced.
Tlioy stopped at longth where I lay, and
j tho dootor examined ray body.
"Mottled," I hoard him remark to the
dresser; "he is insensible already, and will
not last long. Ho Wotherall will make six I"
"Mako six?" I sold to myself; "mako six
what. Six corpses, of course, for burial at
daylight to-morrow morning."
Thoy had gono and the place was In darkness, savo for tho glimmer of a cocoanut-
oil lump, I heard tho scratching of mu-
moot ico just outside, made by the camp*
foUowors, who were digging a common
grave for six of us.
1 felt utterly stunned and quito indifferent
as to my fate. My tongue was' like a pieco
of d ry leather in my mouth, which bad long
since ccimcd to yield any saliva to relieve
the agonizing burning of my throat and palate. I could not have made any sound had
Iulterapted to do so; but I did not try, for
tho lutondants were aU stretched ontho
ground fast asleep. X felt I was deserted-
left to die,
I was beginning to wander, I think, and
was back again in the bright, green, En-
glii-'.i inoadows, picking daisies with my littlo sister, and bo I Bhould havo passed away.
But just at tbat moment, tho coolies, who
hud iiu .shed digging tho grave—my grave
—passed tho entrance of tho pandal; and
MEH   WITH   LONG   HAIR.
Bow Wai-rlo.™ of Oltlutl times DroKSOrt
Their lluad Adornment.
St. Paul held that It was a ahomo to a
man to wear his hair long, and so ho tells
tlio Corinthians in his lirst epistle to them.
On tho other band, Huycbius, patriarch of
Jerusalem, A. D. 000, declared tho outward,
visible signs of manly perfection to consist
in an ample board and in hair Sowing down
tho shoulders. In remote ages tho Persian*), who now havo their heads shaven,
woro long hair. Darius had a mo3t luxuriant poll, and Alexander, who conquered
him, probably paid few Visits to the hair-
cutter's in tho courso of his lilo. Al-
cibiudes and his clique of roues introduced
tho effeminate fashion of hair into Greece.
Boforo thoir timo tho Athenians were
roundheads, und it is fair to presume that
Aristidos tho JuBt, who did not prido himself abovo measure on hiB devotion to tlio
graces, sported u good crop of brlstloa und
ignored a comb.
Herodotus rotates that in token of mourn
ing Iho Persians woro wont to cut off not
only tholr own hair but thomaneaof tholr
horses. Tho Biimo historian tolls that the
Ayriuns, being defeated by tho Lncocltciuo-
uians, nmdo ri sacrifice of their locks, und
vowed thnt thoy would remain shorn as long
as thoy had not reconquered Tbyrto.
At Sparta, Lycurgus had decreed the
wearing of long hair; but this low, to whicli
Plutarch alludes, was novor much obeyed.
Tlio Spartans, when thoy attained thoir sixteenth year, did as the young Athenians,
and burned their hair upon tho altar of
either Diana or Mars. Tlio fact Is, all the
barburinns who used tb como from across
tho bc us in thoBO times woro Sowing Locks,
and tbo Greeks had no wish to roseuiblo
them, says tho Boston Traveller. Our primitive ancestors, the Britons, and liko them,
tho Hauls, allowod tholr hair to grow undisturbed. It often reached below tho wnist,
and men liko Caractacus must havo looked
curious. Conquered by tho Bomans, tho
Gauls and Britons wero ignoininiously
clipped. In his enumeration of tho Gallic
tribes led into captivity by Cccsar, Lucian
speaks of tho Ligusos, "now shorn, but ere*
whilo possessed of an abundant mass of
hair." Thoso of the Gauls who obtained
their liberation hastened to lot their hair
grow again; in order the moro to mark tho
Importance thoy attached to flowing locks
they took to shaving thoir slaves.
In Franco when a nobleman was convicted
of any felonious offense tho razor was in*
variably applied to his pate. Clotairo I,
King of Franco, caused his own son, Gondc-
band, to bo shorn for conspiring against
him; and, by way of adding to tho disgrace
of his sentence, he Immediately afterward
issued an edict condemning to tho severest
penalties any ono who should by stealth or
violence cut off the hair of an honest man.
Tho hair question assumed disquieting proportions In France, for in tho yenr 1201
Piorrc Lombard, Archbishop of Paris (whose
hoad loft much to bo desired In the mat te.
of capillary adornment), was prevailed upon
by the malcontents to become their champion. Ho was a learned and good man, nud
no doubt ho had oflcn pondered upon lho
unseemly appearance of his close clipped
crown in the silence of tho closet, until he
took up tho cudgels liko a man determined
to Will.
The King of Franco at that timo was tho
gul!-ni l, Phillip II., generally known us Philip Augustus. After giving tho mat-tor his
most attentive consideration ho signed tho
magna charter of capillary liberty, at about
tho samo time his royal compeer, John of
England, was making a dismal face over
tho charter of Runny mode, i
Generally speaking, tbe English follow
the French In tho matter of personal adornment, but in tbia case tno iinghsh wero beforehand. So early in tho rolgn of Henry
II. our plebeian forefathers had obtain. d exemption from tho obligation of having their
haircut, and thoy obtained it without much
ado.
We hoar nothing more about short hair
until tho sixteenth century.  From the timo

I tried to get up, but I wai too weak to
stand, and fell down at once. Then I reflected that I was moro likely to bo seen if
I walked, and tf detected ln my attempt I
should bo brought book and perhaps be
strapped down to dio. So I tried to crawl.
I was about ten minutes dragging myself
from my cot to the ontranco, and I wriggled

The first I seized was empty, and the disappointment nearly mado mo swoon; but
the second was brimful. I threw my arms

enormous draughts I swallowed
deal about oils and ointments that woro
used by tho wealthy and noblo of tho middle
ages, and lt appears to havo been a pretty
prevalcnt custom to powder one's locks
with gold dust.
Evory ono knows how long hair and short
hair bad a marked political significance during tho war of Charles t against tho Pro-
tender, lt was no joke then to bo caught,
with brlstloa In Princo Rupert's camp, und
to hnvo como with curling locks under
CroimvU's oyo would have boon to run tho
risk of being sent, not to the hair, but to
tho hcadcutter's.
Charles II. brought baok the fashion of
long cavalier locks, but theso wero soon superseded by the towering wigs introduced
by Louis XIV. He had n very poor hoad nf
hnlr, thin, lank, and of a dirty buff color,
and his barber devised a most voluminous

"Pleaso, sir," snld I, "I am feeling muoh

"Thoro were six without you," said tho

The nomination of candidates for
the election of a member to tho
provincial parliament, to fill tlto
vacancy at present existing, caused
by the olevntion of Mr. Bolo to
tho bench, took placo to-day, and
passed oil" very quietly.. Whon tho
ttmo for receiving nominal ions hud expired, Mr. Cluis. Warwick, government
agent, read tbo following nominations:
Gordon E. Corbould, barrister, proposed by Chas. McDonough, secouded
by Honry Elliott nnd nsseuted to by
I. B. Fisher, Win. McColl aud L. F.
Bonson. Thomas Cunningham, proposed by David McNair, seconded by
Chas. .1. Fagan, and assented to by
Alex. Ewen, J. C. Armstrong and
John Reid, A poll was called for tho
25th inst., nt the courthouse.
On motion Capt. Scoullar waa called
to thu chair and requested the candidate., to Iny their views beforo the
meeting,
Mr. Curbould tvns tlio first called on,
lie said it was hia intention to call u
public mooting at uu cnily date, and
would therefore present hts views very
shortly on this occaaion. The first
important question he considered was
the re-distiibution of Bents, Viotoria
had four representatives in thu house,
while Westminster had only ono. Tho
time had come when thia must bo
changed, not only for thia city but for
tho whole district. It should bo the
duty of tho member elected to sou that
tho whole mainland was properly represented, lloadsand bridges throughout tho whole district wero urgently
needed, particularly a road to tho North
Arm und to Maple Ridge. The improvements of roads throughout tlio
country cannot but prove beneficial to
the city, consequently no effort should
be left unturned to bring the roads in*
to good condition. Tho timo had cume
when Westminater should have a court
house not only suitable to its present
wants, but large enough to Iill tlio requirements for some yenrs to come.
Wostminstcr wns au important city
and Bhould bo at tlm head of tbo cities
of thu mainland. Ho felt certain the
government oould bu induced to furnish the eity with a propor court houso
in accordance with its importance. If
elected, Mr. Corbould promised to
urge tho government for assistance to
build n free traffic bridge across the
Fraser nt  Westminster, which would
govornmeut voto of $1,000 to ihu agricultural Bociety ou the mainland,
Bhould tho island set up n so.i-.ty of
its own. The fustering of industries,
by government support, would alao
have his heartiest assistance. Concluding, Mr: Corbould said it hnd been
rumored ho hnd bought laud in Vancouver; this was true, but ho hnd aold
over half of tho property aud every
cent of tho proceeds had been spent in
Westminster und not one cent iu Vancouver, Ho owned moro land m West-
uuuatur thun Mr. Cunningham, his
residence was here, and that di-1 not
look liku deserting tho city. He hoped
tho contest would bu conducted in a
friendly spirit, nnd not give rise tu
hind feelings. Mr. Corbould was frequently interrupted by applause.
Mr. Cunningham was next called to
tho platform, Ho snid his views had
bi-en laid beforo thu public at a previous meeting. Ho would support thu
present government gust bo long na it
doos justice to this city mid district,
but his hand would never bo raised
ugninst any measure ho considered just
and right. Hu had no interests, except n lit:lo lnnd up tliu rivor, outside
of Westminster; it was thoreforo easy
to sen lie would work faithfully for thia
city if elected to the houae. He had
been working for several years to unite
Westminster city and district, for they,
should bo strong allies. Ho wns foi
Westminster eity and district first am
always, tho rest of tho proviuce hiv
proven ablo to caro for itself. As
the past he would urge tiio erection of
a new court house commensurate with
the wants of tho city. New schools
were badly required, ami if elected he
would insist upon the government
giving our children tiie proper accommodations. Victoria and Vancouver
were well supplied in this way, while
the WestminBter schools wero fifty
yenrti behind the nge, Tho quostion
of a free traflic bridge across the Fraser
he had supported iu tho paat, and
would work in tho same direction in
tho future. Ho thought thu government could be induced to givo u liberal ussistunce to the proposed btidge.
Tho roads generally throughout tho
district require much improvement,
aud new roads were required, particularly a trunk road through tho contro
of Lulu Island from tho Gulf of Georgia
to New Westminster. Tho Yalo road
also was sadly in need oi repair, tho
settlers wore Buffering for want of good
roads by which to get their produco to
market, and if he waB elected ho would
heartily Bupport road improvements on
a huge scale. Thn time had arrived
when a fruit canning und packing oa*
tablishmont was necessary in Westminster, or the fruit growers Of British
Columbia would Buffer much Iobs
Much oauued fruit was imported and
this might ns well ho supplied by homo
industry. If elected ho would Urw
thne n government bonus hu givon to
tho first fru;t cannery, lie would
bring in a measure, if elected, to mako
the registration of voters compulsory
on thu part of either municipality or
govnrmncut. Mr. Cunningham concluded by Baying ho had tho promotion
of other industries in view, but which
would be bad policy to mako public at
present. He wanted to go to jmrtm
ment to striko heavy blows for Westminster, and would do so if nlucted.
With Mr. Corbould he wiihed the contest to bo friendly throughout. Mr.
Cunningham was liberally applauded
at the conclusion of his address.
After passing a voto of thanks to the
i-hnirmnti tho meeting nd jour nod.

on Wednesday noon, Lady Stanley,

from striking was felt, Lady Stanley
oxclnimed "Oh! my!" a natural feminine expression. It was afterwards proposed by Lord Stanley to namo tho
spot "OhI my!" which wus accordingly
dono, Tho ship was three-quarters of

The .1 mphi mi Accliluut.
The Times has received tlio following letter concerning the accident from
Mr. Frederick Villiers, tho noted war
correspondent: "On reading tho account of tho accident to II. . I, S. Amphion published Thursday morning in
the Colonist, ns I was an eye*witness of
the accident I wns much surpri-jod to
read "that confusion reigned'' even for
u moment ''among tlie distinguished
passengers." 1 have hud tho misfortune to be iu other situations of tho
same kind, but novor have 1 experienced such perfect cosiness exhibited
by passengers distinguished, or t_the_*
wiso,asduriugyesterday'sdisaster. Tho
behavior of the ladies of tho vice-regal
party, who exhibited the greatest calmness from tho first moment of the ao
cidentnnd throughout tliu trying period when tho waters woro slowly but
surely gaining upou us, was simply
tho admiration and talk of all on board.
The Cohmi-. reporter must have been
ill-informed ou that score, or moro
likely introduced inlo it a little 'local color.' Ho was also wrong regarding tho situ uf the accident. This can
bo excused, for no doubt it was difficult when he visited the ship to get
accurate information. When a rift
through the fog showed us our danger
a moment beforo we struck, I noticed
wo wore running closo in shore parallel
to a precipitous height, which wns afterwards found to bo tho Keolot bluff.
Evidently the strong current nt this
point drove tho vessel from tho true
course, which the density of the fog
obscured. Sho scorned to have ripped
hor starboard side along the bluff. On
looking back over the anxious period
that followed, ono thing seems to havo
brightened the dreary lime and even
to make the fog less dismal, and thnt
was—the splendid discipline exhibited,
thu cnolness of the captain and officers,
nud the steadiness of the men of 11.1,1.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Whom Should We Elect?
Editor Colombia*™.--Sir:—In deciding who should be returned to the provincial parliament hy Now Westminster
city we should realize the general duties
and necessary qualifications of such a
member; secondly, who among ua is
available, most able and willing to sub-
serve our interests.
The time lias arrived in the history
of Now Wostminstor when site must assert herself politically in order to secure
that influence and 1 cgisiutiuc favor which
her rapidly increasing industries demand-
nnd to accomplish this she must be represented hy men who aro not only zealously alive to the questions nffecting her
future interests, but who possess the
ability to forward those interests, whose
unyielding efforts and highest ambition
will ho ably directed iu securing to this
city in, part, at least, hur long neglected
wants nnd political rights, and whose
ambition will be to make their public
record, and not the position, a stepping
stono to future preferment. This is a
high and praiseworthy ambition, thcou.y
ono thnt merits public favor, and when a
candidate pos-iesses it, I see no reason
why his ambition should bc maligned.
1 believe Thomas Cunningham is such
a man, mid that he possesses traits of
character, ability and ambition which
peculiarly qualify bim for a high and
valuable service ns our representative.
His past efforts in tho public service
havo stamped bim as a mnn of political
character, strong convictions, clear fore-
sight, nnd decisive action. Ho has
shown au untiring determined energy in
pursuing to a successful issue tho publio
measures he has undertaken. He has
shown himsolf thoroughly and zealously
alive to the interests of this community.
His intimate acquaintance with public
measures, and public men, his broad
scope of knowledge on subjects wliich
wilt arise in future, and which will affect
both the former, will arm hiin with a
power whicli must bc felt in tho interests
of this community.
It is this vantage ground, tho strong
individuality of tho man aud his tenacity
of purpose, which will force a hearing hi
New Westminster's interests and crown
Mr. Cunningham's efforts with success
when urging her claims ns representative.
OnSKnvKit,
™tl!l liis-qili-itlittl.
Ei.n'onCoi.i_.\iniAN.-— Sir: I havo pur-
posely delayed a reply to the letters of
Messrs. Major aud Gamble which ap*
poorer™ in your issue of the Oth inst. till
after thu visit of the governor-general
and party. I am sorry to be involved in
this unplcasaut and unprofitable controversy at all. It iB unseemly at any time,
but much morn so would it be unwise to
parade our differences while distinguished strangers arc amongst us, I would
prefer to suffer in silence than liavo unfavorable impressions carried away ot
the expense of this community. Now
that the vico-rcgnl party have gono, 1
loe\ it is due to my frionds and myself to
correct some statements contained in the
lottor abovo referred to, I would state,
first, that I had uo intention to dead-
beat my election address, ns Mr. Major
insinuate.. When I handed my letter to
your city editor I distinctly stated tlmt
1 desired tho publishers of The Colum*
iu an to charge for thu spneo occupied at
the usual rates, Mr. (Hover will hear
mo out in thi™ statement, and if you had
not been advised of this, tho fault is not
mine. When I published my tlrst card
In Truth I made tho samo requost. So
thero was no attempt whatever to dead-
beat.
My first chargo against tho friends of
Mr, Corbould wns this: In circulating
tho requisition to that gentleman, they
weru misrepresenting facts and misleading my friends in stating that I had withdrawn in Mr. Corbould'a favor. In proof
of this I beg to Buhmit the following
statements from four gentlemen, either
of whom in as mueh entitled to orodence
as cither Mr, Major or Mr, Gamble; in
fact, much moro so, for those gentlemen
havo no schemes to foster or Interests to
boom at the expense of Now Westminstor; they arc simply independent electors, und state as follows:
Wo the undersigned woro persuaded lo
slant) requisition to Mr. Corbould by tho
friend™ of that gontloman, Messrs, Mnlor
and (lainhle, in-.urinn ns Unit Mr. C'nn-
iiliighaui lift(1 withdrawn In Mr. .nr-
bould's favor,

hy representation- being made nt the
time thnt Mr. Cunningham hnd withdrawn In Mr. Oorl-nuld'A favor.
(Signed):      o. W. Oii-'iBY.
Now, sir, I am sure that my contention Is proven, and tliat I had just cause
for charging Major and Gamble for doing
that which nny gentleman would consider
discreditable.   I used no harsher term;
and having proved my case, I oan afford
to let the rest go.
Had I known that Mr. Major, iu his
eager haste to evolve his own political
schemes, could so far forget himself as to
bring along a volunteer, witness to involve me in an endless controversy, I
would have "fired" both of them much
more unceremoniously than I did. Mr.
Mnjor declares that ho did not seek n
quarrel with inc. Why did he, with his
man Friday, seek me at nil? Why did
ho intrude where he was rot invited ?
HiB eager hasto betrays his scheming,
and, I may ndd, tho whole management
of the Corbould business, in first pushing out au innocent, inoffensive young
man, then trying to use our late departed friend, and, finally, in bringing out
Mr. Corbould, shows them up in no enviable light. Tho desperate straits to
which they are reduced should open the
people's eyes,
