the present population of England

President Legitime of Hayti is
described by a press correspondent
who recently interviewed him as
"black as the ace of spades. He ii
a tall, finelyform*d man about 45
yeara old, His faoe is covered wit|j
a heavy black beard and mustaohe.
His manners are those of a refined
and courteous gentleman. He wis
not dressed in military uniform at
tho interview, but wore n loose -and
ill-fitting suit of black broadcloth.
His whole bearing wai eaiy and
distinguished."
The Mail facetiously observes:
There is something in a name, and
John seems-to be about as useful a
one as a young Oanadian can have,
John A. Macdonald, John Bon,
John S, D. Thompson, John Allen,
John W. Dawson, and Richard
John Cartwright have, all within
recent yean received favours from
the crown in1 the shape of knighthoods, and it ii probable that John
A. Chapleau, John H. Pope,, John
darling, and John Joseph (M-w.ll
Abbott will be added to the IM of
knights"ere long."
The agents for a certain kind of
cough oandy in New York diitribute
circulars on whioh is stated the-following puzzle:—"What number
can you tike, and when you divide
it by two, three, four, five or six
you will have one over, but; when
divided by seven nothing will
remain I" The circular goes on to
say that if a person cannot sol ve the
puzzle be should buy a bo. of candy,
when the agent will band him tho
right number on a slip of paper.
This is not a bad puzzle to work on,
whether you get any cough candy
or not.
A very excellent suggestion has
been made, which, it carried
out, would tend to do away with
much of tbe opposition to prison
labor that is expressed by workmen.
It is that the prisoners should be
kept at work upon diversified industries. Thus the shoe manufacturer would experience no tangible
competition, and the foundrymin
would not have the somewhat juit
grounds for complaint which have
been afforded him in the put. The
proposed lystem would be beneficiil
in all save one aspect It would
prevent the prison labor from being
ao profitable as it is now. But as
prisons ihould be conducted for the
protection of the community and
reformation of the criminal, luch a
consideration is of very little weight.
Tbe varioni lines of industry would
be adapted to the different intelligence! of the convict, and when he
left the prison tb* trade learned
there would not be branded nil b
"state priion ttadc." .'.
It appear., saya an exchange, that
the experiment of petticoat government in the municipality of Oska
loosa, Kansas, hu turned out a
groat success. After ail experience
of six months under the benign and
impartial away of the new regime
tho oitizens, it il said, find reason to
congratulate themselvci on the step
they took with fear and trembling
when they eloi-ted to tbe council a
woman mayor and live women councillors. Until the Indies made their
appearance at tlie council board
Oskaloom had been a singularly
disorderly and Immoral place, Now
everything but churches, drug
store*, and hotel., have to be olosed
from Saturday night till Monday
morning, and the laws and ordinances are administered with strict
impartiality, contractor.' rings have
been demoralized and broken up,
"deadheads" banished, and the
illegal tale of liquor stamped out
Kansas ia now willing to enter its
petticoat government for a prize,
and back it for money against any
municipal government in the world.

O'BBIBN ESCAPES.
Dublin, Jan, 24.—When the counsel for the crown had concluded hb
can againit O'Brien, Mr. Timothy
Henly, O'Brien's counsel, applied to
the court for suposnu for Lord Salisbury and Mr. Balfour, wbon speeches
be uid were simiUr to O'Brien'i. The

in the court room then begin to murmur, and the gilleriu were ordered to
be cleared. The court officer, proceeded to carry out tbe order when
O'Brien cried out: "111 dear out too,"
and started for the door. The magistrate shouted to stop him. Then ensued a fierce itnggle. A con.table
grabbed O'Brien, and the people flocked 16 aid him. Finally, otter a prolonged fight, O'Brien, by tbe people'i
aid reached the itreet, hb coat nearly

und their sticks freely. O'Brien wu

bayonets nnd at least forty were clubbed by tho police; some of the bayonet wound, are dangerous. It ia not
known where O'Brien is at present,
and it is not expected he will appear
in court to-morrow.

The Victoria Times has tlio following fair remarks about this city,
which we take pleasure in quoting:
"The people of New Wratniinet ;r
seem determined not to let the grass
grow under their feet. The strides
made by the ambitious oity on the
banks of the Fraser during the past
year or two have been remarkable,
and there is every prospect of the
time coming thut is to witness still
greater advancement. During the
past year (he navigation of theriver
by deep sea-going craft has been
solved, and a raiway scheme undertaken that when carried out must
bring considerable prosperity to the
oity. It is true the people will
havo tq pay pretty lively for their
whistle, and those are not wanting
who see the Royal Oity struggling
along under a load too heavy for her
to carry live years hence. Yet
there is no certainty that these are
nOt false prophets. The money is
to be spent in improvements and
substantial things of tbat kind once
made cannot lie removed at the
caprice or whim of anyone. Once
they arc there all there remains to
be done is to bring in the population
and equalize the burden of the expense consequent upon them, for
after all it must not be forgotten
that values depend altogher upon
population. If Kew Westminster
can double her population in a few
years by the proposed investment it
will have paid her citizens handsomely. There is every prospect
that .he will do so. The energetic
actions of the people have thus far
created a new sentiment in favor of
tbe city ami inspire! the outside
world with Confidence in her
future,
A representative of the News-
Advertiser interviewed Mr. V. Martinson, of New York, a 0. P. E.
railway director, ut Vancouver tho
other day. Among other things
Mr. Martinson told the News man
the following, which wo reproduce
as confirming what we have, in
effect, pointed out several times in
this paper: "There was one thing,
however, which tho government of
British Columbia should do,and that
was to spend more money in advertising the province to the world. If
$100,000 was spent ill that direction it would do a great deal towards making known to foreigners
its resources, its favorable geographical situation for commerce
and ita mild climate, M 'Nobody
knows anything of it,' Mr. Martin
sen said. 'Speak of British Oolumbia outside of Oanada, and they
will ask you where it is.' He was
very emphatio on that point, and
repeated it several times in the
course of his conversation, each time
with more emphasis. British Columbia hud a climate very muoh
like that of southern Europe, and,
if known, would attract a considerable population of those who so
many of them die of consumption
when emigrating to colder countries.
The province didn't do enough in
iti own interests." Too muoh cannot be said to emphasize the above
facts. The letters which we receive
almost daily from all parts of the
United States, asking for sample
copies of Tuit Columbian, would,
alone, convince us that this prov.
vince, and this city particularly, are
beginning to attract widespread
attention, and that would-be immigrants are desirous of obtaining
information about our climate, resources, etc. "Strike while the
iron is hot," is a good motto, and n
judicious and liberal advertising of
the provihee and its various cities nt
this time would undoubtedly bo a
most profitable investment.
The World wants a new registry

tias of Delta and Richmond included,   Partof Iho municipality of
Richmond   might   be   more  conveniently icrved  with a registry

we an) not going to say  anything
againit the proposed new registry
office, we ratlin; decidedly object to
tha Delta municipality  being included in a new diitriot with  its

itated above;   To ihow how anxious

this propoial unquestionably would
be i£;*arned q.|. Mt -10,-govdrn-
inent be approached on the subject,
and its views ascertained. We are
confident that an understanding can
be arrived at whereby the wishes of
this community, in regard to registration matters, can be fully satis-
lied. Should it be a tine qua non
that part of tho cost involved for
transcribing titles be paid by the
city of Voncouvor—so long as the
sum paid is a reasonable one—we
are persuaded the bill would be paid
cheerfully, and all classes acquiesce
in the action of the council in this
much-to-be-desired matter." Money
is no object at all! Just show Vancouver a convenient slot where it
can drop its nickels and pull out the
sweet-meats, and it will wear the
machine out in no time. A little
more t. this spirit, under proper
control, would not hurt the royal
city.    ^^^^^^^^^
The Toronto Enij-nre, in a good-
humored and patriotic vein, thus
repudiates the "blizzard" altogether
either as u native or a naturalized
acquirement of the Dominion. Tho
Manitoba blizzards are not blizzards
ut all, it says, ahd we are greatly
relieved at hearing this, for we had
always supposed that they wore.
By the light thrown upon the subject by the Empire, it becomes quite
clear that we were mistaken, and
we now have a higher opinion of
our common patrimony than ever.
The Empire puts it in this way :
"There aro blizzards and blizzards.
The kind which is copyrighted in
Dakota and other western states,
and. is not allowed to circulate
beyond tlio bounds of the republic,
is the true blizzard. Others are
base imitations of the real article.
They are dubbed blizzards by ambitious communities spurred to a
natural emulation by the district:
displacers, of which the Dakotans
ure so fond, and which are include-
in the regular products of the country. Winnipeg thinks it had a
blizzard the other day, but it hadn't.
The high wind whioh prevailed
there was undoubtedly a good thing
of its kind—everything we have in
Canada is first-class and warranted
to bear inspection—hut that it was
a real blizzard, one of those hideous
blasts which catch peaceful settlers
up and dump them in neighboring
counties, which suddenly grasp
barns full of crops and carry them
off to distant places, which, worse
than all, destroy lifo and keep llie
law-abiding citizens within easy
reach of a hole ill llie ground, that
it was one of these convulsions of
nature we cannot believe. For theso
reasons : Winnipeg stands to day
just whero it did day beforo yesterday ; its people ore attending to
their business in tho ordinary way;
the houses remain where the owners
built them; no Winnipegger is
limping along the shore of Lake
Superior on one leg looking for the
other whioh he dropped at Rat
Portage on bis, enforced journey
through the clouds. Ths'conditions
at Winnipeg are evidently not those
which follow the visitation of a
blizzard. Reluctantly we must tell
Winnipeggers that their atmospheric disturbance was a gale, a
good stiff gale, it may be, strong
enough to entail a little muscular
resistance and to summon up the
warm blood to healthy cheeks, but
that was all. The attempt to locate the death-dealing blizzard in
our country is not a success." After
a few yeara' experience of tbe balmy
seasons of British Columbia, even
the Manitoba zephyr would itrike
one as a pretty formidable affair.
We would advise all who are
troubled with climatic scruples to
pay this province a visit before locating elsewhere. Hero, the nearest that we come to blizzards—
genuine or spurious—is to read
about them in telegraphic despatches
from less favored localities. British
Columbia's climate is a matter tbat
is made little of, among her other
numerous resources, but when it
comes to be more generally understood and appreciated, it will prove
a most valuable asset.

A brief struggle ensued; but a', last tlie

A Bash Yeaag Favaer.
A young farmer living near Victoria
is in a dreadful fix, brought about by
rashness almost incredible. He was a
strong supporter of Mr. Ward for
mayor and in his silly enthusiasm
promised a young lady friend that ho
would either marry her or give her bis
farm if Mr. Grant was elected, ahd the
fair lady insists that the promise must
be kept, ahe being willing to close tlie
bargain on either promise, Tho rash
young man does not want to part with
hia farm, neither doeB he wish to marry
tho young lady and so he is in a moat
unenviable position. The young lady,
however, is determined that the bargain must be consummated and will
take proceedings, if necessary, to get
her just dues. It is probable ihe rash
young farmer will not meddle in oity
affairs again while he remains aingle.
Vancouver Smallpox Case.
An Ottawa despatch says: The deputy minister of agriculture opines
that the trouble in regard to the steam*
ship Premier, which had on board a
case of smallpox at Vancouver, was
virtually at an end after a lot of misapprehension on tho matter. Vessels
were not now detained iu quarantine,
but the patients were taken off her as
soon as possible and isolated, the usual
methods of fumigating being adopted.
Although then wen several smallpox
cases, the usual quarantine regulations
would be sufficient to meet tho necessities of tho case. The low provides
that from a vessel carrying infectious
cases all the articles likely to convey
disease must bo taken off and the
vessel cleansed and purified. The
passengers, crow, and vessel must remain so long aa the medcial officer
thinks fit for the purpose of being
cleansed and purified.

A WILD LIFE.
<',W Kainr., tfee"C*w*Be*--.vaai.elUt,"
Gives a Leal trem His Thrllllag
Experience •■ the Frontier.
There was not sufficient room last
night in the Baptist church to accommodate the number who assembled to
listen to O. W. Rasuro, the "cow-boy
evani-oliflt," relate a portion of his
eighteen years' experier.ee nn tlie
plains, fie spoke for an hour and a
half of hii adventures and tho desperate deeds done by the cow-boys in
which he had taken port, he being the
leader of bad men for seventeen years.
Our space only suffices to give a sample
sketch, as nearly as possible in Mr.
Raaure's own words, from the eventful
tale of his life: "I intend to relate
the last 18 years out of 231 have spent
with the cow-boys on the frontier, from
Nevada, through Texas and Arizona.
1 wai born in northern Kentucky.
Hen in your country, law ii enforced,
but in iny country might makes right
in many cases. At the age of 141
joined in the civil war, and for four
and a half years acted as scout, Bpy
and soldier, I was born in sin, ana
early taught to use the six-shooter and
knife. I was interested in the Hill
and Walker feud, of which there only
remains one of the Hills, a cripple; but
no Walker remains; I am a distant
relative of that family. I nn away
from home at the age of 0, got back,
ran away again at 11, and got. back
again and went to school until I wai
13. When the war broke out the afate
was divided about evenly—half confederate, half rebel—and it was hot
work in that country. I am telling
you of my life so that you can see, if
God can save me. He can Bare you. I
shott skip considerable, and comedown
lo '05, when I joined a lot of Mis*
soiirians, .lease James and others.
After the war closed, I went to the
Pawkoo district, in '00, at Fort Lebanon was discharged, and went back
to my home in Kentucky. I had been
back about six weeks, when one day
six men came to the house, and oot
finding me in, abused my mother because I was not there. My mother
wished me to flee the country.'" I aaid
no, they have abused you, and I will
be avenged. Shouldering my rifle, I
want down town, and got my man
(sensation), but the law cleared me;
again they attacked, 1 downed ray
man, and again the law cleared, me:
ana, upon the earnest request of my
mother I left home, and went wobt to
livo nmonj-afc the Indians, to be a cowboy. I started breaking horses, and
was ever on tho look out for read
agents. I crossed the North Platte
River beforo any other white man.,
and was amongst the tint to enter' the
Black Hills, and I can, if ever I get
"busted," go back to Mr. A. Arnold,
of Cheyenne, or any other of those I
worked for and get employment, because I was an honest man and dared
face any danger in protecting thoir interests. Then are lots of cow-boys as
good aa any other men; it is the
acoundreli who have committed depredations in the east, fleeing to the weat
to bo cow-boys, that have given them
a bad name. I can take half-a-dozen
cow-boys and whip more Indians than
100 U. S. soldiers." The cow-boy
evangelist will conclude the narrative
of his life at the Baptist churoh tonight, nnd as religious truths are repeatedly enforced throughout his discourse, saint and sinner may obtain
profit as well aa entertainment.
