NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The New York Herald recently
devoted an entire page to an expression of opinion of prominent men
upon the question of extending the
term of office of the United States
to 6oven or eight years. It is
claimed that the shrinkage in internal commerce and business of tbe
country during the past four months
troocable to tho apprehension, excitement, and otber conditions dependent upon tho presidential campaign amounts to not less than $500,-
000,000, and it isarguod thattbis and
other reasons advanced justifies the
extension of the term of tho presidential oflice. Among others
quoted as favoring an extension are
Ciiauncoy M. Depew nnd Sydney
Dillon, both of whom think six
years is about the proper length of
timo for which a president' should
be elected.

The Chicago Times published an
interview the other day with Inspector BonSeld of the Chicago
police, in whioh that officer declares
that anarchy is neither dead nor
sleeping; but, on the contrary, more
thoroughly organized than even at
the time of the Haymarket riot.
The Inspector said that most of
those present at the memorial services at Wnldheim on a recent Sunday were anarchists. Continuing,
Mr. Bonfleld said: "I have had
several men looking up their meetings, and know where they are, and
have the names and addresses of the
leaders and the rankest of radical
Anarchists, so we can reach then
in case of troublo." Tho inspeotor
referred to Anarchists' Sunday
sohoolB, where children are taught
to hate the law. Mr. Bonfleld said
he had positive evidence of their
plans of organization, etc., and that
he is certain they intend to make
trouble, and it is his opinion that
the one hundredth anniversary of
the fall of the Bastile, on July 14,
1889, is the day set for a concerted
uprising.
The Democrats aro getting rather
cold comfort in thoir defeat
in the presidential election contest.
The Chicago Tribune, ono of tlio
lending organs of tho Republican
party, snys tho immediate effect of
the Republican restoration ordered
by the people will be to strengthen
the great national party and put it in
a position to defy the state sovereignty Demooraoy for a long timo
to camo and give the country perhapi
twenty-four years of Bound and patriotic Bepublican administration.
Tho territories of Dakota, Montana
and Washington will bo speedily
admitted to the union, and their
votes in congress and the electoral
college will invigorate the Republican party, do away with so much
dependence on New York, and
cause the threatened danger of the
solid south to disappear. In other
words, if Dakota is divided into two
states, there will be four Bepublican states added to the union, and
the chances of Democratic success
in presidential contests in the near
future will be considerably lessened.
"The Democrats, consequently,"
says the Tribune, "were playing a
desperate game in the late contest—
and they lost." Probably Harrison's
idea in annexing Canada is to divide
it up into "solid" Bepublican states;
but the advice about oatohing your
hare before you eat it will apply
very well in this case; besides we
warn the Republicans that Canada
would "go Democrat" every  timo.

A writer in tlie FortinglUlg
Review, whose objeot is to dispel
some of the British ignorance about
India, gives a number of breath-
catching figure* about the extent
and population of that country, and
adds : "Everything is on tho same
bewildering scale. Tho lighting
peoplo of India, whose males arc as
big us ourselves, as brave as ourselves
and more rogardloss of death than
ourselves, number at least 120,.
000,000, equal lo Uibbon's calculation of tlio population of the
Roman Empire. Thoro aro 400,-
000 trained brown soldiers in native
service, of whom wo hour perhaps
once in ton years, und at least 2,
000,000 men who think their proper
profession is arms, who would live
by arms if they could, and of whom
we in England never hear a word.
If tho Prussian conscription were
applied in India we could, without
counting reserves or lundwehr, or
any force not summoned in timo of
ponce, have 2,500,000 soldiers
actually in barracks, with 700,000
recruits coming up every yoar—a
foroe with which not only Asia, but
tho world might lie subdued. There
are tens of millions of prosperous
peasants whoso hoarding makes
India the grand absorbent of the
precious metals, tens of millions of
peasants besido whose poverty
fellahs, or Sicilians, or Oonnaught
men aro rioh; millions of artisans,
ranging from men who build palaces
to tlio men who, nearly naked and
almost without tools, do the humblest
work of the potter."

NEW BASEBALL RULES.
New York, Nov. 20. - The joint
rules committee of baseball clubs has
completed the largest part of its work.
An endeavor was made by a few delegates to reintroduce the high and low
ball system, but tho majority were
against tho idea and voted it down.
The pitcher will be compelled to put
the ball over tho home plate or have
the ball called on him. One of the
most important subjects discussed was
the position of the pitcher. During
tho past season some players complained that tho pitcher was not far enough
away from the batsman, and  that  a
Eosition three or four feet baok would
0 ..mre Buitable, A motion to that
effect was voted down. Since it was
decided that an umpire should stand
behind the pitcher no has interfered
with rather than helped the batsman.
When the batsman has hit a fair ball,
.sending it over tho pitcher's head and
hitting tlio umpire, he has no allowance and is compelled to run, and tho
pitcher has only to stoop and pick up
tlio ball to throw him out at first. To
remedy this the committee deoided
that n struck ball constituted a base
hit and gives the batsman a base when
ho hits the umpire. In order to improve the order of pitching tho 00m-
mitteo has reduced the number of balls
to four for next Reason. The throe
strikes remain as usual. The rule regarding foul tips has been abolished,
and hereafter n man will bo allowed to
run ou them.

I hear on all hands the utmost satisfaction expressed with all the cadets from

THE OREAT EXPLORES.
London, Nov. 24.--An attache of -
the British foreign officer aaid thia
afternoon that the government had
just received infoemation which left
very little doubt that the White Paaha
in the Bahr ElGhazel was none other
than Henry M. Stanley, the explorer,
and that Emin Bey with htm. When
the Stanley expedition proceeded ap
the Arummi in June 1887, Stanley
hoped to join Emin Pasha at Wadelai
in August. The most direct news
from thu expedition was dated July
12th, 1887, and it wu to the effect
that having found the Arummi turning
southwards, the courageous explorer
had resisted the temptation to settle
at onco and for all the problem of its
aource, and had started apparently in
a northeasterly direction. Ia other
words Stanley wat making as nearly
aa possible a bee-line towards the
original destination of the expedition.
News up to April laat haa been receiyed
from Emin and aa Stanley had not
then joined him, the anxiety for hia
safety seemed to be justified, especially
when this fact was taken in conjunction with the previous reports of disaster. Deprived of supplies from its
base and in an absolutely unknown
oountry, the critical period for the expedition undoubtedly appeared to be
the months of August ana September,
1887, for it was during those months
that all Stanley's calculations failed.
The news recently received shows,
however, thnt Stanley waa alive ana
well aud pressing forward aa late aa
the end of November last, and it folly
accounts for the delay which had occurred. Halting for reinforcements
which neyer arrived, and delayed by
fever, which waa 110 new experience
with Stanley, and with whioh he well
knew how to deal, the expedition had nevertheless succeeded in overooming all dlffl*
oultfes and in pressing directly forward
tuwards Wadelai for a period ot nearly
five months. The rest of the information confirmed the vague rumors which
reached Emin Pasha tn March of this
year and strengthened the surmises
which African explorers based upon
them. According to those reports,
Stanley finding his progress In the direction of the Albert Nyansa impracticable,
had at laat abandoned the attempt, and
started in an unknown direction. It was
then pointed out that the new direction
could only be north towards the Welle
Alikna and the ooantoy of the Zandehs,
Then, again, news was received that the
rear guard of the expedition was actually
met marching due north, Stanley having
definitely decided to take that course in
order to avoid the swamps to the eastward. When Stanley's followers were
scon marching northward, they were
still robust, and they may now have
formed the nucleus of a force recruited
by Stanley from the Zandeh's who had
Ercviously supplied Emin Pasha with his
est soldiers. The news that the
"Whito Pasha" had a great battle with
tho Mahdi's forces and was victorious
has greatly encouraged all whocllnff tn
their faith that Stanley's good fortune
has not deserted him. Now comes the
information from Pere Londel, a ^-^nan
Catholic missionary stationed In the
Uganda, to the effect that In J&m last
ho had received news which ftnHnated
that Stanley had changed Us otisut
course, that a large force had been re-
ported in tho vicinityof the WelleMak-M
and that this has lad to tho bejel U

Wlmt is being done about our
next city council, uud who will compose that important body! This is
a question of paramount importance
just now, and should not bo dismissed or allowed to lapse until
satisfactorily solved. As our
readers already know, a numerously
signed requisition has been presented
to Mr. John Hendry, president of
the Royal Oity Planing Mills Company, asking that gentleman to
stand for mayor. No finiil nnswer
has yet been received from Mr.
.Hondry to the requisition, but it is
believed tlmt lie will accede to the
wishes of many of his fellow-towns
men and stand for the position. If
so, it is not at all likely that he will
be opposed. Mr. Dickinson, who
has filled the chief office in the gift
of the oity for years, honorably and
creditably, has declined to stand
again this year, and we do not know
of anyone else among our citizens
who would be inclined to oppose Mr.
Hendry at this time. We shall
have a good, energetic mayor, at
any rate, whether Mr. Hendry is
elected by acclamation or at the
polls. With respect to the nine
councillors to be elected next January, no namos have yet been publicly
announced. It is fully time that
the city were thoroughly canvassed
for eligible*, and the matter freely
discussed; Those who intend to
stand for aldermen should announce
themselves, and the ratepayers
generally ought to tako an interest
in bringing out men whom they
would desire to see it the helm in
civic affairs for 1689. There is not
a great deal of time to spare now
before the election, and it is to be
hoped the important matter of the
constitution of our next city council
will not be allowed to go by default,
or to sullcr through indifference, as
has too often been the case in the
past. In Tim Columbian of last
Tuesday (Nov. 20th) wc quoted
from tho provincial act of last ses
sion incorporating the city under
its new charter, giving tho necessary qualification for mayor and
aldermen and voters. The qualification for voters at the first election (those whose names appear on
the voters' list used last January)
will, it is feared, prove a hardship to
many who had hoped to have had a
voice in electing the new council.
Those who nre qualified will do well
to seo that they aro not disqualified
by clause 8, which says that "no
person in arrears for taxes" shall bo
entitled to vote. The Columbian
is open for suggestions as to candidates, and any information or assistance that wo can offer, with a view
to furthering the object o! securing
a good oouncil for next year, will be
cheerfully - forthcoming.
The preparations {or the great
exhibition of the industries of  all
Rations, to be held at  Paris  next
year, are going  on  apace.     The
Eiffel tower has  passed the  200
meter mark (656 feet).   It now exceeds the Washington  monument
in height,  heretofore  the highest
structure in the world, and is  projected to reach a height of 985 feet.
All the scraps and waste  from   its
construction are being saved to be
made into paper weights and  similar memorials.   Other buildings for
the  exhibition   are  completed   or
in process of erection.   Applications
for space are flowing in, and Great
Britain has already   requested an
extension of space, a good indication
of her interest in tho affair.   The
U. S. commission have issued a oirou-
lar colling the attention of the public
to the fact that the space allotted to
that country is rapidly  filling up.
The  commissioners   undertake  to
forward and return, free of freight,
all articles sent for exhibition.   The
allotment of space is set for November 15, nnd shipment* begin in January.   Absolute impartiality is to
be exercised  in  the distribution,
fhe cost will he met out of the appropriation of $250,000 made by
the IT. S. government,   to be expended under the direction  of the
Moretary nf state to defray all  expenses.   All indication*  point in
the direction of a great success, and
it is to be hoped that  Canada, as
well as Great Britain and America,
will occupy as honorable  a station
among the family of nations as she
ha* hitherto held  in  sueh  competition*.   In the meantime, what is
being  done  about our provincial
exhibition, whioh is to be held  at
thia oity next fall.   The fund  that
Wa* started,   with  the  object of
nuking this exhibition a grand auc-
cew, doe* not appear to be growing
rety tent   Send in your names,
gentlemen.   A big (how next year
will be a great thing tor  the  royal
city, »nd it ll about time something
WM   being done   in  preparation.
Nothing has bean done yet towards
getting the ground*  ready.   It ia
hardly to be expected,  of course,
that the  outgoing  council  should
underUko any large enterprise ut
the fag end of the!-- term.  This and
other niatter* will be taken up with
energy, though, by the new oouncil
—If we get tbe right men in,
When the Oanadian Paoifio' Railway began the construction of its
lino across tho state of Maine, says
Bradslreets', it was supposed it
would got into operation early this
year. But unexpected engineering
difficulties wero encountered, the
weather last winter was exceedingly
unfavorable, and the directors wero
accordingly forced to report at tho
annual meeting in May that "it is
not now expected that this line will
bo ready for traffic before the end of
the coming year." Evon this anticipation has not beon realized.
Tbe work of building a first-class
railroad through the unbroken wilderness of Northorn Maine, has
proven difficult beyond all calculation, and traffic can hardly begin
before noxt spring. It seems not
unlikely, however, that communication will bo established between
Montreal and Bangor and the towns
on the Maino Central and New
Brunswick systems east and west,
by way of the Bangor it Piscataquis
road, which connects with the Canadian Pacific at Greenville, by tho
beginning of tlio coming winter.
Most of the grading has been finished
throughout the entire distance from
the former terminus of the International road ou the bouudary between Maine and Quebec and tho
junction with the Maine Central at
Mattawamkeag. Tho length of now
track covering this space will bo 128
miles. Tho rails are also down for
tho greater part of' tho distance.
The principal work remaining is tho
finishing of two enormously high
bridges east of Moosehead hike, ono
of them five miles from Greenville
and the other eleven miles further
on. All the work is of the most
substantial character. Tho bridges
are of steel and the masonry is of
heavy stone. Wooden trestles ore
employed to tho least possible extent. The general equipment of the
permanent way is of high character.
Various towns in eastern Maino are
expecting groat things in the way
of commercial development on the
completion of the line. St. John
and Halifax, likewise, continue their
rivalry in layiug claim to the prospective advantages of the new
western connection. Meanwhile,
Portland and Boston, with established lines in operation in connection with the Canadian Pacific, are
receiving merchandise in large
amounts from the northwest, and
aro acquiring business relations
which ought in the nature of things
to continue.

ICopijrtoU 1689.)
. Two of the most eager, rushing, tumbling, incoherent nnd agitated talkers I
overheard were Blanche Roosevelt and
De Blowltz, the Paris correspondent of the
Loudon Times. Miss Roosevelt Is other-
wise known as Blanche Tucker.and la also
the Countess Manchetta, She Is a New
York girl, and she hasimprovedimmense-
ly In appearance since she left tho city
six years ago. I was surprised and delighted when I saw her in Paris, for she
had become a magnificent looking woman
with a fresh color and perfectly developed
figure, and with the samo old-time blue
eyes.
Do Blowltz is small, fat, runs largely to
whiskers, is not ashamed of the fact that
the London Timet pays him twenty-five
thousand dollars a year, and is of aa exceedingly excitable temperament.
One day in Paris Miss Roosevelt had
just received a long and exceedingly complimentary letter from Sardou concerning her collaboration with him on her
new play, and she had come around to
the hotel to tell about it. Do BlowltE,
who was godfather to the collaboration
scheme—or, at least, who thought he was
—was dancing attendance upon Miss
. Roosevelt, and dancing around her In tho
literal sense of the term. In the corridor
of the Grand Hotel they met an Eicellen-
2a who had left Servia for sufficient reasons, nnd who was thrown into such
a transport of agitation at the report
that De Blowltz and Miss Roosevelt
turned upon hlm, that all three of them
stood on their toes nnd talked at such a
gasping, stuttering and tumbling rato
that tho people stood still and looked at
tliein, even in France. By tho timo I
reached them they were speaking four or
five languages apiece and His Excellenza,
tbo Servian Minister, was violently kiss-
log Miss Roosevelt's hands by way of ex*
pressing his congratulations, since the
rapid talking had made hlm inarticulate,
while the Countess kept up a running
fire with De Blo'vlt-*, who was dancing
around frantically behind her, trying in
vain to catcu her car.  +
After they had left, I Wondered how
many thousand years it would be in
America before a literarymanlike Sardou
could become such a prominent-local
figure as to throw people into transports
of excitement simply by reason of a new
scheme ot collaboration,  *
The Marquis of Hartlngton, who was a
great deal In Paris in company with a
duchess, whose name Is more or leas familiar to English scandal-mongers, Is
about as fur removed from a masher In
appearance as anyone I ever saw. His fad
this year Is trousers of tremendous width.
They flop around his legs like skirts on a
Vermont scarecrow In a galo of wind.
Ho and the duchess stopped ln tbo same
hotel with me once—a small family hotel
in tho Rue Gram out—and, din-lug tho
four or five days that they were there, the
noble marquis did not distinguish himself by uttering A single word beyond bis
guttural "encore, gareon," when ho
wanted more soup, fish, coffee or wine.
During nil the rest of the time ho sat very
far down in his chair with his whiskers
tousled about his wrinkled face, and
gazed foggily nnd sleepily at tho duchess.
She talked with the waiter most ot the
time In the very worst French I ever
beard, occasionally regaling the marquis
with references to tho mugglness of tho
weather and tbe tepidity of the wine.
It wu not the Duchess ot Montrose, by
tbe way. I saw that aged and overdressed
personage at the opera nnd at various
race tracks, and sho was more, much
more, than my fancy had painted her.
She was almost universally referred to in
London, even among nice people, as tho
Duchess of Pimlico—about as insulting
an appellation as ono can readily fancy
when the character of Pimlico is considered.    ■*••*
I crossed on tho steamer with two very
rich and modest young Eugliskiuenwbo
were coming to the States. They went to
Niagara first, and, when they returned to
Now York I found them sitting in blank
and speechless consternation in Delmon*
lco'i. They unfolded their tale of woo to
me. Their schoolmate and cousin bad
married tbe Duchess of Montrose that
morning, and the news had just been telegraphed to them. It is no wonder they
were sbocked.f or.of all the ghastly looking
monstrosities, the Duchess ot Montrose Is
easily at the head. Tho Baroness Bur-
dette-Coutts is sufficiently funny to look
at, but uo one ever thinks of guying her
lu London despite her youthful make-up,
for her fnme for benevolence is as solid as
tho financial standing of her bank.   - ~
One often sees an exhibition of paternal
feeling on the part of a king in Europe.
I was In Dresden onco when tlie King ot
Saxony returned to his palace after an
extended trip to tho North, His heavy,
beefy aud loyal subjects gathered under
bis window to the extent of about sixty-
five or seventy, and, by the aid of a government band of about two hundred
superb musicians, gave His Majesty a
reception—a welcome home. For along
whilo ths small populace and tho largo
band rent space by the vigorous use of
their lungs to no effect. Then the side
doors of the palace wero thrown open, and
His Majesty strolled forth In ageneral's
uniform, nnd beamed upon his people.
Upon tbls, the crowd grew almost frantic
with delight, while His Majesty posed
thore, with one band on bis hip and the
otber on ths hilt ot his sword,-look ing to*
ward tbe Betting sun. It was a beautiful
picture of a commonplace and rather
silly looking little man on parade lu gorgeous attire. Ha stood then bathing ln
the sea of admiration for a long while,
and then, perhaps detecting tbat tbo
cheers wen growing fainter through
fatigue or lack of material, he withdrew
with gnat tact into the palace again,
after smiling like a father wonld on ths
assembled hosts of Saxony. It was tunny
to observe his *ilr of greatness. Then wan
absolutely nothing to baok It np.
Von Moltke and Vou Blumenthal stand
back in tho ranks of the German generals
now as Waldersee looms np. But ths
world will not forget tin two wonderfnl
old marshals who have given way to their
more youthful rival. It was Von Moltko
WbO Picked Waldersee out more than
twenty-flvn yean Ago to ineeecd blm.
Thero was never any secret about this in
Berlin, and tt is nonsense to assert that
tbo Emperor Intended to slight Von
Moltke by putting a younger man ahead
of blm. The old commander of the German army will be ninety very soon now,
and he bas certainly earned his retirement. "Young" Waldersee would bo
called old ln America, though It Is considered that he Is just about entering bis
early manhood lu the army of the Kaiser's
ampin. Fifty years Is a moro bagatelle
ovor there. . Blakblt Hall,

"Old Hutch's" Corner It Affecting
...*» Mulberry Bend.
1 Then an moto than a halt million
souls In Mew York city and its environs
who to-day an consigning "Old Hutch"
and bis crew to a very, warm and sul
phurous hereafter. They nro the working peoplo whoso weekly incomes run under ten dollars a week. A majority of
thorn aro foreigners, Italians, Hungarians, Bohemians, Russians, Polaks, Slovaks and Roumanians. Tho minority i_
made np of unfortunate Americans. In
tho awful tenement districts of the East
Side, lifo Is a matter not of dollars but of
cents. Quantity and not quality is tho
object of every one of the thousands of
women who dally sally forth from their
unprepossessing tenements to buy tho
food for themselves, their husbands nnd
their littlo ones. Bread is their staple.
They cau not afford to make it; they cau
not even afford to buy it fresh. This
costs five cents a small loaf aud t en a
large one, or rather it used to cost these
figures. For since the Great Chicago corner in wheat the small loaf and the largo
have gone up In price and gone down In
size one-fifth. They buy stale bread, the
subject of one of the great Industries ot
Gotham, If they purchased it from tlio
bakeries, wholesale or retail, they formerly paid two and a half or threo cents
asmall loaf; if from tho peddlers who buy
their stocks from hotels nnd restaumuta
two or two nud a half cents; it from tlio
itinerant Italians and Russians who buy
it heavens knows where, one and a half to
two aud a half cents apiece, This lowest
grade would bo n curio, were it nob so
pitiable and monstrous. It is not only
stale, but it la also re mi-decomposed uud
often mildewed and mouldy. In soma
instances the dealer scrubs it clean wlih
a scrubbing brush and then re-heats it in
nn oven. Thia operation Increases its
cost a bait cent per loaf.
An average family of the type desoribed
uses from thne to twelve loaves per diem
according to its numbers. It is the chief
food for breakfast; It is the lunch of the
husband in whatever trade he maybe nud
with tea of-the family, and Is the piece do
resistance of tbe dinner lu the event n;*.
At two cents and a half or three' per loaf
the family Is ablo to invest the remainder
in tea, coffee, sugar, milk, a little meat or
fish and a few cheap vegetables. The increase in tho price of flour has upset alt
theso conditions. At first fresh bread
Increased in price and diminished in size.
Then stalo bread followed tbe example and advanced from halt a cent to one
cent and a half por loaf. The result was
to increase the fond expense of a family
from two to twent y cents a day.
' Alreadythe chango is beginning to express Itself In popular indignation ood
outcry, ■ In the Italian quarter where
nine-tenths of all ths bread used is stale,
the name of the great Chicago operator
nnder the romanesquo pronunciation of
"OldaHucha'Ms heard everywhere coupled with m-dedictious. In the neighborhood ot Avenues A, B aad C and 4th,
6tb,Cthand7th streets, tbo very hotbed
of New York socialism and anarchism, It
would 'bo very unsafe for that distinguished bull to be seen. Iu the Jewish
quarter the philosophic resignation which
bas so long characterized that race has
again come to tho front and apparently
stifled stronger feelings.  	
One consequence of tho corner Is peculiar. The demand for stalo bread has
increased at least a third white the peddlers who formerly dldn thriving business
nro making littlo or no money, or else nro
being driven into other vocations. Up
to recently thero were nt least 600 stale
bread pedlers In tho tenement districts,
whilo today there are uot moro thau 400,
women and meu. Tlio bakers and hotels
can no longer sell state bread so as to
allow a margin of proflttothe peddler. In
Mulberry and Bayard streets the bakers
are now exposing stale bread both In
their windows nnd on tbo sidewalks in
front of their stores. Ontho East Sido
nearly every baker now sells stale bread
directly from his couuter, some going so
far as to put a small sign lu the window
announcing tlie fact.   ..     ..-.—..

Much ill-fortune surrounded Theodore

New York had.evou so long ago as 1SG0,
Whim- Thomas first came to the front, a
number of public-spirited citizens, some
German, someto the metropolis born, who
loved Biethoven and found great comfort iu tho lordly majesties of bis superior
thought. - ii
Thomas was taken by the hand and encouraged by the Philharmonic societies lu
New IV k and Brooklyn.
The Steiuwuys regarded him with great
favor, und all German-born citizens wen
rather proud of his then approaching
prominence. It was uphill work for him,
but bu was industrious, nud though never
A very active mau, ho loved to work, and
brought to his purpose a conscientious
determination to outwork with intelligence hi-) honest convictions. In addition to his work lu the phllbarmonio
societies he gave secular concerts in a
large building on Seventh avenue, near
Central Park, where he attempted to enforce the discipline and regulations of a
first-class concert room. Well now this
Terrace Garden, as It was called, was
but littlo mon than a respectable beor
garden, and people went thero summer
nights to bear music, to drink beer, to
smoke cigars, to chat, ta pass a pleasant
hour or two. This was not ln accordance
with Mr, Thomas' Idea, so deliberately
time and again, when noise interfered
with the ongoing of the concert, he would
stop, turn, and literally command silence.
I have often thought wheu sitting in the
Metropolitan Opera House, anuoyed by

A Creaking Hinge
Is dry and turns hard, until oil ia applied,

joints, or hinges, of tho body-are stiffened

by Its action on tho blood, relieves this
condition, and restores tho joints to good

most experienced physicians, Were It

sanitary and otherwise, and says that
the accommodations aro equal to any

A Newsy Langley letter.
Our Langley correspondent has got
his quill sharpened for the season, and
sends us the following racy and interesting notes:
The Langley council is composed of
energetic men, but so shortsighted tbat
they are not able to detect dangerous
holes on the publio highway without
tho aid of a spyglass, and they have
not got ono among their kit of tools, at
least you would not think so by traveling over some of the roads under their
supervision.
Langley is ahead again. Mr. A
McGillivra** has raised on his ranch
or'.'- ;hree tons of tobacco, and is manufacturing the same into cigars, plug,
and fine-cut, and he intends to build a
factory on a large scale for next year.
He has got out a patent for his brand
of tobacco. Well dono, Angus, [The
fact that tobacco can be raised in British Columbia, and profitably, too, will,
wo venture to say, be a real surprise to
our eastern readers.—Ed.]
Tho sawmill in Langley iB nearly
completed.
Win. Murray has raised over 70
bushels of garden carrots from 13 drills,
GO feet long, in his garden.
All the batchelors of Langley are
gathoring in on their ranches—quite
a flock of them. Could not tho fair
sex havo morcy on them! they look in
need of helpmates. [Surely the fair
box will not turn their backs upon such
an appeal.—Ed.]
The grain is turning out vory good
iu this vicinity; you may guessso,whon
tho threshers turn out ty sacks of
oats per minute.   Who comes next ?
John Murray is making u great
slaughtering on the bears—four in two
weeks. Now, John, you ha *e satisfaction for your apples.

Tbe ttcimiviil ef a Bell from a llui-ne*-*
Neck Is the Alleged lauHe.-t tiopcr
Arrested.
Somo months ago two Englishmen,
named John H. Bosustow und Arthur
W. Quinton, squatted on a piece of
land on tho Yale road about 3 miles
from Brownsville. The adjoining
property was taken up by A. 0. Cooper,
a negro barber, of this city, and
Cooper's wifo and children resided
there. Neither Bosustow or Quinton
have over visited Cooper's house, but
although there has been no intimacy
there has been nothing particular in
tho way of unpleasant friction between
tlie neighbors. Yesterday morning
Mrs, Cooper, who is said to bo a virago,
hung u largo cowbell on hor horse's
neck and coolly tied tho animal to a
tree at a short distanco from Bosus*
tow's door, Mr. Bosustow was reading at tho timo and the never ceasing
jingle of the very unmusical bell proved
such an annoyance that ho went out
and took it oft', at tho sumo time Bonding word to Mrs. Cooper that he had
done so. In a few mimttoa Mrs.
Cooper urrived nnd oponed a tirado of
abuse on Mr. Bosustow, and before
leaving threatened him with all sorts
of things. No notice wns taken of tho
woman's talk and both Quinton and
Bosustow forgot the occurrence. In
the afternoon Mrs. Cooper shouldered
a riflo and started in tho direction of
tho Yale road, about half a mile distant, nnd shortly afterwards returned
accompanied by her husband. Messrs.
Bosustow nnd Quinton, nnd tho 10-
year-old Bon of tho former, were eating
BUpper just before dark when a rap
camo to the door. Quinton, without
rising, called "come in." Tho door
opened and Cooper, armed with a
rifle, entered and demanded their
names, to which Mr. Bosustow replied.
Cooper then raised the butt end of tho
rifle and dealt him a terrblc blow on
tho side of the hoad inflicting a cut 2
inohos long and knocking him to tho
floor. He then turned on Quinton and
struck him twico on thethead with the
riflo, Inflicting several' ugly wounds
from which tho blood flowed freely.
Quinton, though u cripple and scarcely
able to use his legs, grasped tho rifle
and struggled with Cooper, who finding he could not release it pulled a revolver from his hip pocket nnd after
cocking it was raising it to fire when
his wife rushed in and turned the
weapon aside imploring him not to use
it. Yielding to his wife's wishes
Ooopor put up the revolver and
then turned savagely on Quinton
again, first dealing him a terrible blow
across tne ribs and then brutally kick-
in--* him about tho body. From the
blows received Quinton lay on the
ground bruised nnd bleeding nnd totally unable tu rise. Cooper then wont
in search of Bosustow, who had escaped to iho bushes, but not finding him
returned nnd told Quinton thnt if both
had not taken their departure by this
morning he would kill them outright.
Cooper and his wife then left. The
attack was so unprovoked and bo unexpected that neither of tho injured
men hnd any chance of I defending
themselves. Tho cabin in which thoy
live ia a small ono, and had it not been
for a beam running across from one
sido to the other, just above tho table,
and which prevented Cooper giving
his weapon swing, it is quite probable
that both men would have beon killed.
Before daylight this morning BosubIow
and Quinton left tho cabin nnd mado
thoir way to town where information
against Cooper was laid. Mr. Moresby
went in search of Cooper and was successful in meeting him just as he had
landed from tho ferry. A-lriKded revolver was found on his possession.
The case will come before the police
magistrato to-morrow- Dr. Bentley
examined the wounded men and found
their injuries to be very severe though
not dangerous. The result of tho examination will appear in the evidence
to-monw. The appearance of the
unfortunate men beforo being washed
wns anything but pleasant, their heads,
faces, hands and clothes being covered
with blood, which together with the
undressed wounds presented a sickening Bight.

The announcement in your paper
that McRittaon was a candidate fur
the reeve of this municipality has
started peoplo here discussing muni
cipal topics. The general opinion is
tho present council must go, and several parties are spoken of as candidates for their places. At the lust
meeting of the council it was decided
to call for tendors for certain works,
amongst which appears ono for 40
chains of ditch and road on tho Parmi-
ter-BeBon Cross road. Insomuch as
there is not a single settler on this
road, and whnt littlo revenue there is
left (after paying tho expenses of loan
bylaws) is urgently needed on roads
over which many settlers have produce
to haul, the ratepayers strongly object
to this being made, and freely express
themselves that it looks ns if some of
the councillors wero determined to get
their lands drained at public expense,
and wero anxious to do so before they
wero out of offlce. All taxes should

so as to give as full a vote ns possible
