POLICE COURT.
(Before T. C. Atkinson, P. M.)
Jas. Miller charged with an infraction of the liquor license by-law of
1889. The chiof of polioe swore positively that the liquor belonged to Miller, and that he had seen him serving in
tho booth on several occasions aud
knew that ho had takon out a license
for the booth. John Cambridge,
sworn, said lm wna employed in the
bouth as u sei'miit at $4 a day aud
board. A lively U<g.tl sparring matoh
took plaoo ut this point betweon tho
counsel, Messrs. McColl and Russell
us to whether Millor, Lhe accused,
should bo produced in court; Millor
was ovon tun Ily called. After a (-ood
deal of damaging evidence Cambridge
in answer to Mr. RuiboII's question aa
to how he knew that tho lh.uor, given
by Miller to ihoso who called for it,
was whiskey or ginger ale, Baid he had
a bottlo of ryo whiskey iu his pocket
and he gavo it to Miller who poured
out somo and sold it over tho counter.
Mr. Russell (defence) admitted that
this was conclusive evidence. Tho
liquor wns sold at 15 conts a glass.
Peoplo who wanted whiskey winked
to tho bar tondor or naked for "lemonade with a stick in it." Mr. Rob*
son, city clork givo evidence to the
effect that Millor had offered to pay
handsomely for a license to sell liquor
on tho fair grounds. Thia of course
was refused. Mr. McColl asked his
honor not to impose imprisonment
and to make tho tine moderate.
Mr. Russell made a very humorous
defence aud called attontion to tho
state of tho weather at the time the
offence wus committed; tho people waut*
ed the liquor, and this young man
had laudably oudoavored to cater to
their wants. (Laughter.) Being the
first offence his honor said ho would
deal as leniently wilh the enso as tho
law would allow. Fined $20 and
costa. A week was allowed in whioh
to pay the fine.

Rome, Oct. 9.—-It is currently reported in this city that Prince Bismarck hus urged upon Signor Crispi

for some fear of troublo. Bismarck
alao asks Crispi to modify so far as
possible the strugglo of the Italian government with the Vatican, whioh is
alsu, although a matter of minor importance in international affairs, an
irritation and extremely uncomfortable element in diplomatic intercourse.
The chancellor prefers that the pope
should look upon Germany as his
friend, and desires to maintain tho
most amicable relations with the vati->
can as well as with King Humbert,
He has been discontented with the
situation ever since the Italian prime
minister declared opon war with Leo
XIII. It ia expected Signor Crispi
will acquiesce in Prince Bismarck s
views, and his requests will be indicated in his forthcoming speech at
Palermo..

London, Oct. 9.—The eleotion to

THE GOLD DRAIN,
London, Oot. 8,—-The threatened
drain of gold to the Argentino Republic, whioh in part induced the directors of the Bank uf England three
weoks ago to raise the rato of discount
to 5 por cont., hits now struck Germany, and 1,500,000 murks of gold were
withdraw ii to-day from tho Reicha
bank, in Berlin, for shipment to
Buenos Ayres. Berlin financiers do
not conceal their nervousness at this
movement of gold from Germany in
the face of a money market which is
anything but easy, and, as further
orders for shipment of gold to South
America havo been received, something like a panic is threatened, and
Berlin is at serious disadvantage in
case of a drain of this cort, since, unlike London or Vienna, it cannot count
upon aid from the Bank of Franco,
which to-day holds by far the largest
gold reserve in Europe. The sharp
rise iu the Bank of England discount
rate precludes any hope of naturally
sharing ihe outward flow of specie with
London, and the Berlin bankers will
iu &U probability be driven to ask tor
temporary assistance from her.
A GREAT STORM.
London, Oot 8.—Tho storm whioh
swept over England and Ireland yesterday, though doing serious damage
everywhere, appears to have spent its
fury iu tho northern portions. Tho
reports of casualities resulting from
the high wind which prevailed all day,
como iu hourly and the aggregate loss
of property will be enormous, aud several lives we're lost by contact with
flying timbers and the debris of demolished houses, hut the telegraph
wires everywhere aro so crippled by
the storm that accurate figures eannot
yet be given. In almost every county iu England and Ireland houses were
blown down by the force of the gale,
and many cases are reported in which
occupants of the ruins remained for
hours buried in the river, until rescued from their position by their more
fortunate neighbors. In most of
these cases serious injuries were sustained by those dragged from the
ruins, and in some, death has resulted.
In the city of Bradford a largo ware*
houso was blown down and the heavy
brick walls in their fall crushed in
four houses adjoining, Tho occupants
woro buried all night under tons of
tangled debris and It was not until
late this aftornoon that the hundreds
of mon who had been set to work at
once to roicufl them, managed to drag
them from under the ruins of thoir
homos. Many of tho victims wero
frightfully maimed and sevesal can*
not recover.

The endeavors of The Columbian
to forward in every way tho success
and interest of the late oxhibition and
celebration are thus acknowledged by
the Vancouver World:
The Columbian is quite elated ovor
the success of the lato exhibition, in
which it had so large a share. It waB
the first to sot the ball a rolling, by
heading a subscription list with $100.
The action of Thb Columian was
emulated by others, and so a goodly
sum was netted for the general fund.
It kept the matter before iti readers,
always directing their attention to tho
necessity of making the exhibition
worthy of the royal city. We ssy
nothing of the excellence of its reports
of the gathering, because we conceive
that all tho mainland papors did the
occasion justice. Honor to whom
honor ia due, ia a true motto; and it
is only fair to add theae few words of
felicitation to the many heard within
the last fow days, on the success whioh
attended our cotemporary in its efforts
to prove to the people of the provinco.
and visitors generally, that that portion of British Oolumbia lying contiguous to tine fresh-water terminus of

Icarus and Acorn left Westminster for
Esquimalt, intanding to survey the
channel for admiralty charti, on the
way over. At 0 o'olook in tho evening they anchored off Edith Point,
Campbell Bay, Mayne Island, about
2h miles to the east of Plumper a Pass,
intending to remain there until morning. The Icarus was the first to
anchor, and with the receding tide
was discovered to be hard and fast
aground. Her companion made several attempts to pull her off, but ineffectually. Vestorday aftornoon tho
Rainbow passed the grounded man-of-
war, and received a Utter from the
captain to be delivered to tho admiral.

Wisely concentrating their thought
ami anergics upon the oxhibition
and celebration uf Inst week, with a
result of which every citizen hns
reason to be justly proud, tho Royal
burghers have hnd very little time
lat'ly to devote to other important
questions which urn now staring
them in tho face : to wit, the seleo
tion of a proper person to represent
us in the house in the yawning gap
left by the felicitous elevation of
Judgo Bolo to tlio benoh, and tho
momentous Westminster Southern
Railway issue, which comes up for
a final verdict at the hands of tlio
ratepayers on Monday next, tho
Hth inst. A third question that
must not be allowed to go by default, for the credit of tho royal nnd
loyal city, is the taking of the necessary steps for a proper reception to
the governor-general, who will visit
us iu a few weeks. Somo particular-; as to this question will be found
elsewhere. Tho former mattor, that
of solecting a representative for tho
local houso, to be returned by acclamation if possible (as this is the
last session of the provincial parliament) will bo the work of the public meeting in the city hall to-night.
Every elector of whatever political
stripe or shade has an interest in
the selection of a good man with
correct views and possessing tho
general confidence of tlie electorate
to represent us at this time in the
local house, and the meeting tonight should bo a largo and thoroughly representative one. With
respect to the Southern Railway
matter, the interval of time now to
elapse before the vote upon tho
loan by-law Will bc taken is
not large, and it behooves tho
rati payers to bo earnestly coa-
sidering how they shall cast their
votgs ou so important an issue, und
it anyone has anything public to say
on the question, tho sooner said the
better. Tho columns of The Columbian are open to communications
of n reasonable length on the subject. It maybe thought advisable
to hold a public meeting to ventilate
railway matters, and lHstyMt must
he held this week. Every ratepayer
should arrive at his own convictions
on this question, and voto accordingly. Certainly, no one should
rashly or unadvisedly lond himself
to the defeat of the scheme,
A gentleman who is interested
in tho manufacture of a peculiar
sort of iron piping, observes an exchange, states that certain New
York capitalists are laying plans for
the erection ih that city of a tower
which will cast the famous Eiftel
towur in Paris in the shade. Jay
Gould and Russell Sage, it is said,
aro backing the scheme and the intention is to erect a structure not
less than 1,200 feet high and 100
fc'-t in diameter at the summit at a
eo-t of about §2,000,000. The idea
is t:) offer thin tower ns a crowning
reason why the world's fair should
hit located iu New York. But the
Chicago people are not to bo caught
napping in tliis way. The News
of thnt city makes the announce-
went that its columns will be open
to ull persons who wish to make
suggestions aa to some characteristic
feat ire which will render the world's
fair in Chicago historic in itself, us
well as for the occasion which it
will commemorate, This idea hns
Won borrowed from London 'Truth,
whioh is likewise asking for suggestions of novel attractions, likely to
rival the Eiffel tower, for the next
great exhibition to be held in thn
metropolis. Several answers havo
already been received, One person
proposes a complete reproduction,
on n grand scale, of Noah's Ark,
with overy detail that enn be gathered from scriptural or ancient history. Another suggests n holo in
tho ground as big and ns deep ns
thii (jJiffiij tower, at tho bottom of
which shall be a spacious apartment
for nil kinds of amusements. Others
propose various modifications of tho
original towor idea.
A congress of American states is
to open at Washington shortly.
Representative** will be present from
yearly nil the independent governments of Central and Southern
Aiinriea and of lho United States,
Cnnnda will, not be represented,
bowi-ver, so thu gathering cannot bo
(Juliet! strictly pan-American Tlie
main object of thb conference is to
promote trade between the countries
interested. Because of this it was
thought that Canada or othor
dependencies of European countries could not be invited to
participate without a seeming desire to bo unfriendly; as tho object
is to divert trade from England,
France, Spain and Germany, the dependencies of these countries would
not bo asked to take part. Such
wns the explanation rnuilo when the
congress of the United Statos was
nr ranging for tho conference und
issuing the invitations, and it is
reasonably sutisfaotory. It is interesting to note tho predisposing
cause, so to speak, of this confer
ence. Tho United Statos is steadily
losing ground in South America,
thu great bulk of thu trade being
done with England nnd other European couutrioy. principally Germany.
The conference will be* invited to
consjder a number of other matters,
aud especially the establishment of
international arbitration to take the
place of war in the settlement of
disputes between the independent
governments of the western hemisphere. But tin* main business of
the conference will bo tho great
question of trade, and if the United
States can manage to recover some
of its lost ground in the Central aud
Soutli American countries, it is
opined that it will not distress itself
even if nothing should be done in
the matter of international arbitration. The mere fact that the richest
and most enterprising nation of tho
continent feels itself compelled to
Jako tliis course, in ordor to enlarge
its trade relations, is, as a cotemporary well remarks, a most significant commentary on its policy of
high protection, It is unablo to
compete with England in markets
which lio at its very door. Jt has
carried protection to such a length
that it is fast driving itself outof
the markets of the world in nil
manufactured articles with which
England can possibly compete,
Timo will demonstrate what this
projected conference will do to improve matters,
NOTES AND COMMENTS,
The Australian colony of Victoria
is well supplied with religious. Although its population is only a
little ovor a million it has no fewer
than 150 different sects and denominations, not including one lot of
six persons who describe thoir i"o-
ligion in the census papers as "■£ s,

Launches propelled by electricity
are now common on the Thames.
Heretofore the use of tho steam
launch has been attended with more
or less discomfort, but by means of
electric storage batteries the distasteful features of common navigation are dono away with. The
uso of the storage batteries involves
obtaining a supply of 'electricity
whenever this may be needed. To
accomplish this, floating electric
power stations have boen put up at
various points on tlie river.
Tlie fact that Mr. Gladstone is tv
Scotchman with out a drop of any
other than Scotch blood in his veins,
is claimed by Mr. T. P. O'Connor fco
be a very important factor in the
mental characteristics of the ex-
premier of the United Kingdom.
It may also be remembered that his
nationality has contributed largely
to liis success as ft political leader,
having certainly been worth very
many votes to him in Scotland,
while not operating in the least to
his disadvantage in England.—E:v.
"Groat Scott, Maria !" exclnmcd
a Chicago father as ho saw hi*, infant son with the daily paper in his
chubby list, don't you know you
musii'fc allow that)" Why, what's
tlie mutter, James?" replied the
mother, "Tommy's amused and
what harm can there come'of it?"
"What harm 1 Can't you see that
he is likely to receive certain impressions regarding the Cronin case,
nnd thnt when he grows up he will
ba disqualified from sitting on tho
jury? if you women had your way
tlie Cronin murderers would never
come to trial."
As might have been expected,
the real estato "boom" in Southern
California has collapsed with disastrous results, and it is likely that
tho development of that portion of
the State will prove to have been
retarded rather than ndvanced by
it. Many paper cities in which lots
were sold at extraordinary prices do
not boast a single inhabitant, and
in one in Los Angeles county, in
whicli a large hotel was erected and
public buildings were begun, a watchman is the solo resident. It is
simply the old story of unwise speculation ; the larger tho bubble, the
greater the collapse.
Galignam tells that recently al
Mayenmountier, in tho Vosgcs,
some citizens assembled in the main
thoroughfare in order to hoot M
Jules Ferry nt tho close of u public
meeting. The ox-premier, much to
to their suprjso, went among them,
and in a friendly, jocular way
ashed how much they were paid to
shout him down. "A day's wages,"
they replied. "Very well," said
tho ox-premier, "I give you down
on (lie nail, two day's wages to ery
'Vive Forry I'" Tho demonstrationists cheered him immediately, nnd
continued to shout iu his praise until long after sundown.
Tho number of disasters and tho
loss of life in connection with British shipping seems appallingly great
until we remember how large a
portion of tho world's shipping
Gre.it Britain controls. Even then
the figures are startling. In tlio
year ending June 1888, the number
of accidents to vessels was 7,724
and 2,534 livos wero lost, There
wero 906 ships wliich wore total
losses with a tonnago of 863,0.18
tons. Noarly one-third of thu lives
lost woro in missing ships, and in
tho period wo aro dealing with no
Ie-*; than 71 ships disappeared.
That is to say, overy fow days in
the year a British vessel (lisappeim
nevor to to he heard of again. The
total number of deaths at sea, adding to the former number of tt-634
all deaths whether by accident,
frotn natural causes, and the accidents in fishing craft and small
boats, gives a formidable total of
4,993, Those figures rovoal hotter
than rhetorical description the
dangers of the deep nnd the suffering--endured hy those who live a
seafaring life.

N.vjhvillo. Parts of tho buildings were

nu; tiun room, and for othoi' conimordnl pur-
pDiea, Tho building was oreutod hy Dr,
HaOloy as arcsiflonco. about 1885, and was
(•str.Qhied olio of tho noted residences in tho
ulty. Dr. Ilailloy occupied itaan rosidonco
for a number of yoarsi or up to 1845. At
thai time it waa abandoned aa a residenco
mul was occupied by tho Union aa a news-
jiapoi'offlco, und that papor was published
thoro during two Presidential campaigns,
lt was on tlio street in front of this build*
tag tlmt tho encounter, which wns in reality
a private duol, boweon Genoral Felix Zolli*
coffer ahd J. W. Marling occurred. These
wc ro stirring times in Nashville, and it took
a j.vent deal of gnlt to stand up in front of a
mini and call hiin nnmoB.
(n 185:.! tho rear or tho building was fitted
up ia a altts/Q market. Tho slave pon was
of lu-iclr, two atories In lioi,~*lit, and tho
wlndowo were honviiy grated. Tho floors
extended under tlio bricks in tho wall to
prevent tho possibility of OBcapo by tearing
up Uio floor. Thoro wns an outsido court
about forty foot square, tho pen boing 16*
eatod In tho middlu. Tho style of tho firm
running thin slave market was Dabbs,
Porter & Co. The individual membora of
th'- lirm woro Joo Dabbs, Reese W. Porter
and II. IT. Haines. Goorgo W. Uttchings,
who waii a son-in-law of Jcsso Johnson, was
afterward eonriooted with tho flrrii. Of
thoao Halnos and Dnbbslong sinco joined
tho.silont majority. Georgo W. Hitchings
di<tl in Texas a number of years ngo, and
Roeso Porter, tho only ono of the quartette
who Is nlivo, is now in Texas.
Many wealthy plunlors from alt parts of
thb tlouth woro in tho habit of coming to
thio market and buying fancy slaves at
fane;- prices. Tho highest-priced slaves
were tjuuclroori girls. A wealthy Louisiana
planter, who still has relatives of the samo
nuiho living near Nashville, at ono time
einnc horo and houghtflvogood-lookinggirls,
hiking thom to his plantation near NowOr-
lomts. With thoso a clean bill of salo was
required, a medical examination being had
in each caso.
Tho auctions woro usually private True,
the sorvicos of an auctioneer were requirod
and lho slaves wore knocked down to tho
blgiiost bidder, but tho figures were generally agreed upon boforo tho auctioncor
mounted tho block. Tho mart would hold
about■ fifty slaves, but tho average number
on laud waa about twouty-flvo.
ltohbrt 1. Lylos, who was connected with
the r.iai-tiisntmdor, committedsulcido by
Bhooting himself on a Mississippi rivor
Dtoair.ot' Iii tlio year 1850 or 1857. Ho had
delivered a number of slaves in Louisiana
and was on his way homo whon tho rash
act- occurred. Tho causo of his action was
novor ascertained.
Ono night in 1857 threo slaves cut their
wny through tho brick walls to where tho
l'raoJinnn-s bank building now stands and
escaped. Two woro recaptured, but ono
mule tiis way beyond Mason and Dixon's
Hue I-j safety.
A slavo named Loin committed suicide in
the yard about the samo timo. Ho wns
brought hora to bo sold, aud sorrow at leaving hii old master caused tho deed. Ho got
hold of a pistol-in somo way, and tho shot
Which brought hiin freedom was fired with
unerring aim,
While confined In the slavo market tho
slaves wero generally woll treated. Thoso
who wero known te bo desperate wore
huuduiiffed, but tho majority of men did uot
iiso.uiro sueh measures. The women nover

in iho front dwelling, and tho women wero

Tii-rQ wns littlo restriction placode^.tluiuu

girl from eighteen to twonty-flvo yoars of
a:.', would bring from $t,50O to $1,800. Ono

threo or four years before tho outbreak of
thu war and atarted a mart on his own hook
In the building opposito tho Colonnade on
Cherry streot. Thlumtirt was In operation
at tho outbreak of Uio war.
During tho years 1858, '50 and '00 a slavo
i;i.;vtwas ruii'on Market streot. Tho pro*

near Nashville, This mart wns on a larger
scale than tho Cherry street ono. Tho man*
iK-r of snlo at both marls wns as follows:
Tno Blavcs wero drawn up in lino, win n tho
pluntor, trader or contractor who dcuU'Cd to
purchase would examine thom thoroughly
and discuss their respective qualities. With
the Il'udcrti it wai a matter of speculation,
nnd lliey would frequently tako n lurge
number South at ouo timo and dispose of
them lo fcWuthcrn planters. Tho wealthy
Southern gontlomau counted his slaves by
the hundreds, and nearly all tho mo3t familiar names In Davidson County wero slaveowners. There woro more femalo slaves
than mules, and, strange as it may appear,
more blacks than whites. It la estimated
thatUiure wero ten thousand slave:; in tlie
vicinity of Nashville at that time.
In Uio oarly duys of Nashvillo many ad*
vc-rtlsombut™ concerning slavos appeared in
tli-* dully press. Whon a slavo was wanted
It was as common to advertise tho want as
now to rent a houao by tho Bamo moans.
One not ico headed " Hard Times " stutcd
that iho advertiser desired to sell sixty
in* id of horses, ten fat steers and threo
iu-ely negro boys.
Another warns all porsons from trading

sluve; for which J mn sued, nud mean not to
|iuy snid nolo unions compelled by law."

llilgy, dimly lighted bare apartment, n
great squaro of stool, standing partly opou
in a steel casement, suggests the entrance
to the new vault. This door, nbout eight
tee! high nnd six fcut wide, is six ruches
thic',1 and weighs five thousand pound j, Or
two and ono-half ncttoia. To move it on its
tracks into ils stool easing requires tho
desperate exertions of fivo men. A mechanical dovido is now boing constructed to
lesson the demand for this amount, of muscle in handling tho ponderous portal. A

highly polished bottom of a dish-pan and

where tho custodian of tho vault may
make his rounds of inspection. Upon a
trayorao central corridor tho cclla opon.
Each door io fitted with nn ingenious device for fuatoning- wliich will not catch until tho door is entirely shut nnd tho key removed.
Each of theso colls will hold nix and a
half million dollars, or two hundred tons
of silver dollars, or a grand total of 11,500
net tons, equal to 100,000,000 silver dollars.
If the corridors were used for storage this
aggregate could bo increased to tlU3,bOO,-

this treasuro may ho formed when it is
realized tliat to transport it would require
at least 1,800 wagons, which would extend
in a continuous line from mc new city hall
of Philadelphia to Norrlstown, or a tram of

of the 00,000,000 of peoplo whoso public

Tho greatest wonder In tho Stuto of Iowa,
md perhaps uny State, Is what is callod tho
"Walled Lako," In Wright County, twolvo
nilea uorth of tho Dubuquo & Pacifio rallwny, and ono hundred and fifty miles west
it Dubuquo, Tho lake is from two to throe
loot higher than tho earth's surfaco. Iu
'omo plnccs tho wall Is ton feot high, fifteen
'eet wido at tho bottom, and flvo foot wido

vary iu weight from threo tons down to a
iiiiidred pounds. Thoro is au abundance of

Hryan 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 tlsin,
If I can find J. Rousseau's," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He hunted the stores all along the main route,
Says he, "The right one I've not yet found out.
I want J. Rousseau—I'll buy only from him,
For he sells the cheapest," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He stepped a little west of McKenzie street,
He met Rousseau's sign—sure it was a great treat;
He lifted the latch, and Jim stood within.
" I've found it at last," says Bryan O'Lynn.
We showed him both Calf Boots, Kip and Cowhide,
The ones we praise mostly, without seams at the side.
We have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Berlin;
" Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn,
He bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for we sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "Be not taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
" If there is a leak in the toe or side of your shoe,
Just take it to Rousseau, that's all you need do;
He will peg it or patch it just while you are in,
And the charge seems like nothing,!' says Hryan O'Lynn.

Tho Nanaimo Free Press thinks ita

is now being mndo to mako tho provincial exhibition a permanency at

Tho value of advertising iu a journal read by lho massoa is bent proved
by tho results obtained. On Saturday
tlto (J lobe House inserted nu advertisement itt The Columbian announcing the opening on Tuesday (yesterday) of new fall millinoiy, Tho opening tonk placo as announced, and out
of the six dozen trimmed hats ami
bonnets placed on display, less than a
dozen remained unsold when closing

of t hia advertisement can easily be
perceived from theso results.
Mr. A. Loamy was in town again

The meeting called fur to-ni-'lit at
the city hnll to select n candidate to
ropresent tho city of Westminster in
thu provincial parliament, in the place
of Judgo Bole, is attracting much
moru interest than public meetings
usually do, U ia certain tho hall will

also a suro thing that the meeting will
bo of a most lively nature. The gen*
tlemen willing to offer their services
for the good of the general public will
bo present, and give their opinions on

Tho run of sockeyo salmon ia s'ill
surprisingly large. The lish aro still
making thoir way up the river aud
there seems to hnvo been no diminution lu numbers during the past four
weeks. When the run will ond is a
question that the oldest fisherman on
the river will not vonturo to answer.
Tho cohoes nro slightly increasing in
numbers and tho averago to-day wns
(10 to a shift. Spring salmon nro very
Bofttce, whilo salmon trout arc fairly
plentiful. Tho number of boats fishing at present is uot great, as only a
fow canneries aro packing and tho outside demand is light.
'.lino Ship* to Load Lumber.
Tho American barquontine, William
Ronton, will arrive in Ihu river in
about a week, should tho weather hold
line. Tho Ronton is from Suu Fran*
cisoo and will tako on u lull cargo of
rough nud dressed lumber frum tho
Royal City Planing Mills for Adu-
Inido, Australia. Arrangements havo
been completed whereby another large
ship will probably arrive here and
load a little later than thu Benton.
Tho mills have been running night
ami day for some time past, and thu
arrival of these ships will necessitate
still more double pressure work on tjie
staff nt the mills. Tho lumber trade
with Australia is assuming very respectable propoilions and Westminster
ia naturally feeling, and will more and

market aa the  ialand  continent  pro-
Lord Stanley's Itcct'iill-iii.
Tho reception of Lord Stanley of
Preston, governor general of Canada,
on his coming visit to Westminster, is
ono of Ihe many matters of importance
that will occupy public attention during tho present month. The eitycoun-
cil will take the matter iu hand at an
early dale, and it is quite probable a
public mooting will bo called to allow
tho eitt-ams to determine what the nature of the reception to his excellency
iv ill bo. Among tho arrangements already decided ou is an addross of welcome, to bo publicly presented, a visit
to tho canneries und tho saw nulls nnd
a drivo around tlio oity. It ia probablo a couple of arches, adorned with
legends of welcome, will also l»o erect
ed, whilo a royal salute by tlio nitillery
will precede tho presentation of tho
address of welcome. Mayor Town-
send will invito Admiral Honengo to
send it]) a portion of tho fleet to assist
iu the recoption, and it is hoped the
request will bo complied.

Mr. Billy Do vine, woll known to
tho oflicers of justice as a chronic
drunk, beat vug and hard ticket,
stood up in front of his hon.ir to-day
in the police court. "Same old complaint, William 1" qucired his honor,
"Yos, plane yc tinner," replied Billy
penitently, fixing his bleary oyes on
tho heavy frown bristling on tho broad
forehead of Constable Smith, and
twirling the remains of his hat nervously. "Sure, its sick I wuz yer wur-
ship, an' I tuk n small drop for mo
health's sake, so I did." "For your
health, ohl" snid his honor Bmilingly
and incredulously, "And what was the

Au Enjoy uh Io Evening.
Thu lecture last night by Mr. Bengough in Herring's opera house was a
success, that is, if suuics.- dqiunda
Upon the number nl* tho audience, and
thu fact th-it thu major p.ui went away
well satisfied. Mr. Bengough has au
eaay, off' hand stngo presence tliat at
once puts tho audionco at ease und
raises their anticipations to tho highest
point. Whon tlio lecturer stepped forward last night only a fow Beats iu the
rear of tho hall woro vacant; all othor
parts of the liouse wore filled by un intelligent and attentive audience. The
substance of the lecture is that Mr.
Bengough tells his hearers that ho was
once culled upon to supply the places
of a number of distinguished people
who wero to appear at a charity entertainment, and he then goes ahead and
shows how he did it His impressions
of such famous peoplo as .Joseph Murphy, Whitney Mockridge, Sol, Smith
Russell, Mrs. Scott-Siddons and Mark
Twain are capital. The anecdotes
with which tho lecture is diversified
nro humorous and inimitably told. Interspersed with l)io acting and speaking aro tho cartoons of local celebrities.
The lecturer fairly astounded his audience by the fidelity of tho portraits
which ho rapidly sketched on largo
Blieeta of brown-tin ted paper. Tho
lecturO on tho "dudo" was keenly appreciated by the audience and provoked screams of merriment, Tho
representation of the two Irish political orators, ono from tho south and
the other from the norlh of Ireland,
was considered by many the boat piece
of tho evoning, Tho imitations of the
woolly brogue of Tipperaiy nnd the
rough "burr" of Ulster were perfect.
The recitation of the piece by Whit*
combRiley waa received with overy
evidonco of delight; and the humorous story by Mark Twain did what
most stories by that gentleman usually
do, mndo tho audionco laugh consumed])'. At the conclusion Mr. Bengough suid ho hnd uot had time to
gather n portfolio of local notabilities,
Lut that na ho intended ti repent tho
lecturo Thursday evening ho could
promise a big budget of royal cily
phizes. Tho cartoons drawn during
the etiteitalnmont were sold hy auction
and fetched good prices,
