NOTES AND COMMENTS.
"Royalty is as expensive as it, is
useless," says the Huston Globe.
Bat was it not proved that the
quadrennial expenses of tho Presidential election are in excess of sums
paid to thn Royal Family 1—Empire.
A lato Kuhumy, N. J., despatch
says: Oharles Martin, the young
"Firo bug," was to-day sentenced
to five years' imprisonment. When
tho judge usked why he committed
tlie crimes, tho young man said,
"For a littlo fun."
Our American friends in some
of the states are fond of confusing
names, so long as they may be high
sounding and suggestive. The
Bellaire, Zanesville, and Cincinnati
railway is advertised ns "tlie only
line running through without change
of cars, to Jerusalem, Bethel, Ozark,
Jacobsburg, and in full view of the
'Plains of Abraham,' near Cumberland. Close connection made at
Jerusilcm with stage for Antiooh."
Probably very few are aware of
the fact, says an exchange, that
there exists in New York nnd
Philadelphia a society composed of
wouiou who take nn interest in and
look after the welfare of all women
and girls who work in factories and
sho|)s. They busy themselves with
suoh serious subjects as the variations in the rate of wages, the efficiency of combination as a protective measure, the hours of work,
and so forth.
III. Eitlcl, tho famous engineer
wbo is building the great tower for
the coming exposition at Paris, has
had a good deal of troubte with his
workmen. They objected to laboring ut so high nu altitude as 600 or
TOO feet unless the scale of wages
wns raised in proportion. All difficulties have, howevor, been amicably
adjusted, and the work now goes
rapidly forward, not even Sunday
being a holiday. On January 7th
the tower had attained the 700-foot
level, nnd was expected to be completed by the middle of March.
Says an exchange : Tlio' Eiffel
tower hns been well advertised. PThe
wholo world has been hearing about
it for months. The last reports
wero sensational in the extreme.
It was said that tho tower was out
of plumb, and references were of
courso made to tho tower of Pisa ;
thut engineers were detailed to
examine it with theodolites, etc.
But it may, perhaps, not be generally known that tho Eiffel tower
has been built expressly with a
view to the possibility of correcting at any time any deflection from
the perpendicular by a sinking of
the foundations. It is supported on
four enormous hydaulic jack-screws,
as they are called. Probably these
reports arose from the fact that
observations wero made to see
whether it was necessary that these
should bo brought into requisition.
An American cotemporary humor
ously discourses thusly an Yankee
idiosyncrasies : Young Jim Blaine
is so delighted at the prospect of
his father having a placo in the
Harrison Cabinet that he has quit
work and is indulging in a jubilation
all by himself aftel the fashion of
Lord Dundreary's bird of a feather
that Hooked together. The Yankee
is a strangely mercurial critter
when onco ho is aroused to a condition of emotional exaltation.
They tell a story to the effect that
when tho annnal salaries of the
members of the Amherst College
faculty were raised to $1,200 apiece
old Prof. Snell, who had taught
mathematics (or half a century in
that institution, went home and
called out to his wife; "Our
6iihtry has been raised and we've
got to celebrate; cook the codfish
to-tluy, wife—in real cream—no
moro Hour thickening for us I"
Russia is nothing if not aggressive.
Her aggressiveness hns lately taken
a new form. Instead of pushing
troops, headed by warlike generals,
beyond her eastern frontiers for
"scientific purposes," as once sho
wns so fond of doing, her soul lungs
for maritime acquisions. Sho too
must have n finger in the pie with
which nil Europe is now busy.
Last accounls assert that Russia ia
trying to form a Cossack colony in
northeast Africa—as if there were
not already in Africa enough conflicting nnd bellicose powers. What
with British troops, Italian troops,
Egyptian troops, Abyssinian troops,
and, now, Cossack troops, a temple
of Janus in Africa will have little,
chance of closing its doors. Apparently tlio spot chosen by the Cossacks is Tadjuruh bay, in the Uul(
of Aden. It hns an insecure anchorage, nnd a population of only about
fifteen hundred souls. But what
chiefly seems to makes this nn ill-
chosen locality is tho propinquity of
Aden, England's Gibraltar of the
east, which is strongly fortified,
possesses two good harbors, and is
ono of Britain's principal foreign
naval depots. There are rumors,
however, afloat that u mysterious
treaty exists between tho Negus of
Abyssinia and the Car in regard to
the latter', receiving certain territory in return for aid against the
Italians, but little is known for
certain of this at present- -Ex.

Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
LABOUCUKItB 8 CABLE,
London, Fob. 13.—We have not got
to tho bottom of the Meyerling
tragedy. 1 do not believe in the
authenticity of the letters whioh have
appeared in the papers as coming from
tho Arch-Duke Rudolph and the Bitro-
ncas Marie Vena stating their intention to live no longer. Theae letters
seem to bo of a pieco with all tho
stories told by ordor of tho empress.
Between tho occurrence of tho tragedy
and the funeral of Rudolph, before
there was time to concert a good, circumstantial account that would hold
well together, official peoplo blurted
out that tho Crown Princo Rudolph
had been shot behind the ear in a
diagonal direction, and that the c-jro-
■nal partof the skull had been carried
oil" by a bullet as it went out of the
the head. Noth ina; at all was said of the
Bnrones Verau. We might fancy it was
Bhe who discharged the pistol if she had
not been hit in the back. Both wero
found dead on tho same couch and
there were (lowers scattered upon the
corpse of Marie. Docs this uot point
to a woman's hand or to that of a
maniac from jealously, und to tho bu-
premeand feminine irony in vengeance1
The diagonal shot upward also points
at somebody having boen concealed in
a room under the bed or table or some
other piece of furniture, and to creeping along stealthily until he or she got
up to the Bloeping pair, and to the
placing of the pistol close to Rudolph's
head and firing up at it. Marie would
doubtless ou hearing the shot have
sought to have escaped when she was
knocked over by a pistol Bhot iu the
back. The mutilations also ou
both showed a maniacal hut red.
The Baroness Versa, I nm told,
calls for justice. It is withheld
to prevent a worse scandal than that
which has been stirring the world for
the last fortnight. Letters announcing suicide intent have, as it wns pointed out by me, been overdone. Why
of all persons in the world should tho
Prince Rudolph havo written on this
subject to tho Duke of Brngan/s, with
whom he wns but slightly acquainted,
and who lives at Lisbon liko a Eon
Bourgeois. If there was murder the
murderer or murderess must hnvo
known the petite maimm nt Mcyerling
with its dogs and domestics so ns to get
in without being barked nt or challenged. There wero several watch dogs
there and unchained. Why should Rudolph, with his great expectations,
hnvo taken tho suicidal plunge with
ltis inamorita ? At Vienna, where
manners and morals are Inx, it
would have been thought a feather in
Marie's cap to have made n conquest of
him, nnd to have been conquered in
return. The hypothesis of double
murder is everywhere accepted out of
England.
THK I'At-NKLI. COM MISSION".
London, Feb. 13.—In the Parnell
commission to-day testimony was taken
with regard to boycotting in Ireland
and the encouragement givon to it by
tho national league and the Irish
leaders. Little interest wns taken in
the proceedings by spectators and the
benches were empty.
YANKEE MANNERS IN LONDON.
London Feb. 13.—An American,
giving his name as Luke Emerson, of
MiaBouri, nnd his occupation bs horse
dealer, became involved in a brawl on
Oxford st. this morning with a parly
of loungers. All were moro or less intoxicated, and Emerson drew a pistol
and tired at his assailants, wounding
two of them Emerson, wm nrrested
and will have a hearing before the
magistrate to dny.
BOULANQElt DENIES.
Paris, Feb. 13.— Gen. Boulanger
says he is unacquainted with Mrs. T.
Lucas, of St. Louis, whom n St. Louis
paper announced he was to mnrry as
soon as he obtained his divorce. Mrs.
Lucas, who is now in Paris, nlso denies
the truth of tho statement.
CRJFTY BISMARCK.
London, Feb. 13.—It is learned
Hint the postponement of tho Snmonn
conference in Berlin until thn V. S.
m.uds a special commisiioiicr from
Washington is due to the fact that
Bismarck wants to (.-.in time so thnt
the (.crmnns in Samoa ean settle their
scores with the natives who murdered
their wounded sailors, and. a conference, which would require n truce in
the islands preliminary to nny negotiation would be in tho way. Salisbury,
for renson well understood, readily assents to a postponement, preferring to
have the business taken out of the
bauds of the present administration nt
Washington, and transferred to tho
new regime under President Harrison.
HEAVY DAMAGES.
London, Feb. 13.—In the action for
divorce brought against Marie Temple,
the actress, by her husband, Mr. Izard,
H. W. Leslie, proprietor of the Lyric
Theatre, who was named ns co-respondent and from whom damages were
claimed, has been sentenced by the
court to pay to Izard £6,000.
FOLLOWING HOULANOER.
Paris, Feb. 13.— Gen. Boulangor ii
gaining adherents in the chamber.
Thero was n stampede in his favor on
Monday nigh', when 70 republican
deputies voted against the restoration
of the Scrutin D'amndisssment nsa
measure directed solely against, him.
Some of tho members voted as thoy
did because they were opposed to the
method of dictation which Gambettn
had denounced and rejected, but the
majority of them wore converts to
Boulanger.
WESTWARD IIO !
San Francisco, Feb, 12.- A. L.
Maxwell, general passenger and ticket
•gent of the Oregon Railway and Navigation Co., is in the eity. He says
nr migration into Washington Territory
this season is enormous. The equipment is strained to its utmost to accommodate purchasers of tickets.
Columbia River steamers are carrying
GOO passengers daily. The entire tide
of immigration, which last year was
attracted towards Southern California
is now directed to the north-west und ia
asaistini; in peopling Taoonia, Seattle
and other cities of the northwest.
PROVIDlNtJ 1*011 LABORERS.
Washinoton, Feb. 12.—Itis understood that it has been deemed wise by
tho authorities of tho United States,
Great Britain and other nations, having large numbers of their citizens employed on the Panama Canal, lo arrange for bringing them homo in case
of u wholesale discharge and not io lot
them suffer destruction and want. Ad-
v ices received at the stato and navy
departments show that nll'-tir.. at present at Pnuauiti ure quiet but that
trouble may be expected nt any time,
Tho United States steamers Ossipce
and Atlanta are nt Asp.il wall and tho
United States steamer Mohican will be
at Panama in a fow days. This force
is regarded as sufficient for tho protection of American interests.
A  THAOIC   INCIDENT.
Vienna. Feb. 12.— It is reported

he Blood before Iho mirror and shut
himself exactly na tho crown prince is
(reported to have done.

conference of liberal and radical unionists wa*. held at Glasgow to-dny. The
attendance was large, comprising
many loaders of both factions. Among
other matters upon which the cenfor-
enco took action it was resolved that
tho maintenance of the legislative and
executive union between Great Britain
and Ireland was a paramount consideration. It was tho sense of the meeting, however, that local government
should be extended to Ireland and
Scotland in such n form as to meet
,their respective requirements, Mr.
Austin Chamberlain, son nf Mr. Jos.
Chamberlain, was present and took an
active pnrt iu tho proceedings. It iB
believed that his father is preparing
to push his own Irish schemes in parliament at the earliest practicable moment, and is seeking to win Scotch
support to the measure by tho inclusion of Scotland in its benefits.
THE DOMINION PARLIAMENT.
Ottawa, Feb. 12.—The first evening aeaaion of tho house took place
to-night. Tho houso went into committee of supply.
Hon. Peter Mitchell, referring to
the increase in tho military appropriation,deplored the existence of a standing army iu Canada. He characterized tho grndual expansion of tho
permanent military force as unnecessary, as Canada did not expect to be
transformed into an armed camp liko
Europe.
A return ot the receipts and expenditures, chargeable to tho consolidated
fund fot the months ending Slat January last, showa thnt the receipts have
been 621,330,254, against 822,022,-
001 for tho correspondiug period of
laat year, and the expenditure $20,-
031,503, against $20,058,052 for the
seven months of the corresponding
year. An examination'of the details
shows that the receipts have largely
increased from customs and excise nnd
the revenue from publio works. A
notable decrease in the expenditure
occurs under tho heads of legislation,
arts, agriculture and statistics, fisheries
and post office department.

A MISERABLE AFFAIR.
North Jddson, Ind., Feb. 13.—
After boing stopped twice by the police
the Myers-McAuliffe fight came off
here this morning in tbe presence of
about 500 people. Mike McDonald
was referee. The pugilists.entered the
ting at 0:18 a.m., but were not called
till the crowd grew ugly and threaten-
d to tear down the hall. The sheriff
again interfered at 0:42 o'clock but
after a parley tlio fight was allowed to
go on. 1st round—General sparring.
2nd round—Myers hit McAuliffe just
below the neck, knocking tho latter
clean down; McAuliffe jumped up and
the round ended in light sparring.
3rd, 4th nud 5th rounds developed extreme cautiousness on part of both men
aud nothing like real fighting was done.
In the 4th round McAuliffe landed a
left, right in succession on Myers' face
but the two blowB disturbed the
Strentor man very little. Iu the 12th
round McAuliffe.claimed a foul, which
was not allowed. Tho slugging was
mild all through to tho 15th round,
but what there wns favored Myors in .
almost every instance. Up to tho 15th
round Myers hnd decidedly the best of
it and it was predicted he would wiu.
Whcti Myers camo up forthelGth
round Ins eyes were badly colored. In
the lOtli. 17th and 18th rounds not a
blow was struck by eithor men and the
indications wore thut the huht would
continue for n long time. Both men
wero very cautious. Myors guarded
well against Mac's left. Tho 19th and
20th rounds wero a repetition of the
previous rounds; both men noted
cautiously, evidently fearing a blow.
From the 20th to tho 23rd rounds similar tactics were adapted. Light sparring ruled in the 24th. Once McAuliffe ruahed nt Myen and hopped back
and fell against'the ropes, Myors returned, but the blow fell short. The
20th -round closed Blightly in McAuliffe's favor. A constable stopped the
fight. Referee McDonald suavely informed the constable that it was a
friendly set-to. The 27th round had
nothing to commend itself; the crowd
growing ugly and threatened to blow
the constable to atoms if ho appeared
again. In the beginning of tha 28th
round tho men made some show of
fighting but before the end they dropped into horse play of previous rounds,
both evidently afraid. Up to the 43rd
round waa little more than a walk
around. Iu the 44th Myer dealt McAuliffe a blow which sent Ihe easterner .
to grass. No change in. the Slst .
round. In the next both pursued the
same tactics, when the referee declared
it a draw. The battle lasted four hours
nnd a half.

The Matsqui dyke, which has
only been completed n few weeks
ago, will have a good opportunity
to "settle down to business" before
being "tried," us, on account of tho
general mildness of the winter and
the light snowfall, n very trifling
freshet may be looked for this season. The respite should lie taken
advantage of by sowing tho seed of
vigorous-rooted grasses on the dyke
embankments, which, having u season's start, would tend very much to
increase the solidity aiid permanent
efficiency of the dyke.
"hung firo" quite long enough, and
the importance of tho work is so
great, and the interests involved so
momnntoux nnd increasing,*-"ns-to
justify a demand that n sufficient
appropriation be made this time to
complete the work without further delay. The strongest representations
to this effect should be made, - not
only by our council and board of
trade, but by our member at Ottawa
as well.
It would appear that wo were
mistaken with respect to tho Kamloops Sentinel'ti remarks re -the
necessity of a central locality for
holding the annual teachers' examinations. Our cotemporary didn't
want the earth, as we supposed, but,
according to very lucid explanations
since, merely wished to urge the
reasonableness of having tho examinations held at different convenient
centres throughout the province, instead of, as at present, nt one eccentric point for the whole province.
This is a matter for the educational
authorities to decide upon. If found
practicable, it would undoubtedly be
more convenient and satisfactory
than the present method.
The Blaine Journal thinks wo are
a little hard on Uncle Sam's navy,
and says, among other things, that
ho "can take The Columbian man
to a place a thousand miles from tide
water (if The Columbian man will
pay the fare) where the United
States can turn out every fow
weeks an armored ship, on water
over which she can float them to
the sea, nnd in the same establishment she can manufacture artillery
for her ships, as well as clothing and
accoutrements for her army." "We
can assure tbe Journal man that
we have no hard feelings against
Uncle Sam, nnd our sympathy and
best wishes for his navy is only
equalled by our solicitude for its
safety. The Journal man wants us
to "put up" for two, and take a railroad trip to somewhere, where tho
"United States can" &c. We
wouldn't mind taking such a trip
{provided we can collect enough arrearages from our customers to take
a flat car passage for tho Journal
man nnd ourselves), but wc must
have* tho assurance of our cotemporary that thore is no "sell" about tho
business. In view of tho notorious
fact that Uncle Sum's war-canims
don't loom up very lnrge, we are
afraid that the Journal man's "can"
has a catch about it somewhere.
If he can take us to a place where
they do such things, and will kindly
mention a time when the walking
is good, in caso we fail to "dig up"
for the flat car, we'll go in for his
little pic nic.
Somo of the actions of the council
last night will bear a word of favorable comment.   The board of trade,
over alert in tho interests of this
locality, submitted a recommendation to tbe council to have a  committee of citizens appointed to solicit
subscriptions for park work.   The
recommendation   was  approved by
the council and the committee appointed accordingly,   and wo trust
that our citizens will respond  liberally when they nro waited on by the
committee.    Every  citizen  should
take a personal interest and pride in
having our new city park converted
into a thing of beauty and utility,
which shall be a joy   forever.    Besides, this is exhibition year, nnd if
the exhibition is to be mndo what it
should   be,  our  citizens   must be
patriotically  liberal,   and assist in
the preparation of the grounds   and
the   erection   of  grand exposition
buildings on n portion of the  park
area.   To carry out  tho exhibition
on the scale desirable will require a
good many thousand dollars, but the
royal city's honor nnd dyne are at
stake, and her  material   interests,
too,  for  that matter, in the issue;
therefore, let our citizens rally manfully and keep up their end of  the
stick, as is their wont in all  emergencies.   T_io.se who are  doubtful
about giving financial assistance to
tbe park, and exhibition undertakings may  reinforce  thoir  flagging
patriotism  by  tho assurance that
Any money thos expended will, like
line "bread oast upon the waters " return to them before   "many   days,"
We would also commend Aid. Cunningham's notion in  giving  notice
that he will ask the council to appropriate $3,000 for nark improve-
menU, and we hope that the council
nay pais a resolution to that effect
at an early date.   Our reasons will
be found in the foregoing remarks.
Tbe motion of Aid. Scoullar, seconded by Aid. Jaques, to the effect that
the clerk should prepare a memorial
to the Dominion government, pointing out the insuffiency of 810,000
for Fraser river improvements,  and
uking for an additional sum to te
placed in the supplementary   estimates for the purpose, is very  well
timed.   Theie improvements have
The Scientific American of Feb. 2
prints a long communication from its
special correspondent in Paris, under dato of Jan. 12, on the subject
of the exhibition buildings and arrangements for tho great exhibition
to be held in tho French metropolis
and seat of fashion, beginning in
May next. In view of our coming
provincial exhibition in this city
next fall, the subject is one of in
terest to us, and we quote some of
the more general observations of the
writer above mentioned, which con-
tnin some suggestions that might be
turned to account in tho arrangement of the exhibits, etc.: "The
lirst impression one receives on a
general survey of the Paris exhibition buildings is an exceedingly
favorable one. There is a something
about them that is pleasantly impressive, and this feeling augments
as one passes through the various
departments. What ib is that gives
this impression is not at first clearly
definable, but reflection discloses that
it is the ornamentation, which is
charming in its unobtrusiveness.
Certainly no other exhibition has
approached this one in the ornamentation of the windows and walls
of tlie interiors, as well as the exteriors of tho buildings. It is too
early, however, to dwell upon this
point, as much of it is only fairly
begun. The buildings are, as a
whole, well advanced, and, so far as
ono can at present see, the opening
day (May 4) will find matters in
better order than is usually the case
with exhibitions. An American
cannot well avoid a comparison of
this with the Centennial exhibition
of 1876, and will^at once concede
that, so far as the buildings are concerned, this Paris exhibition is quite
beyond comparison, not so much in
size, however, as in refined beauty.
If one confines himself to the
grounds on which the exhibition
stands, the Centennial exhibition
has the advantage, or if one leaves
the scenes outside the entrance gates
out of mind, and thinks only of the
actual exhibition grounds, then the
Centennial again has the advantage.
But the entrance to the Paris exhibition will be delightful, especially
if one goes through the Trocadero,
across the Seine, and pass the Eiffel
tower. When we come to the arrangements of the exhibits, there
may be room for a difference of opinion; for example, agricultural implements will be in the agricultural department, which is separate from
the machinery department; hence,
the effect, so fur as it depends upon
the magnitude of tho exhibits, is diminished. On the other hand, however, to whatever extent the general
machinery department suffers on
account of tho nbsence of the agricultural machines the agricultural
department obviously gains, and it
is perhaps preferable to havo each
special class of machinery exhibited
in connection with the particular
class of human industry to which it
belongs, or with which it is most intimately associated. Nobody, however, who visited the Centennial exhibition of 1876 is likely to forget
the impression made by the immensity of tho machinery department, notwithstanding the comparative crudeness of the building. The
Paris exhibition does not, it must be
admitted, duly impress ono with its
immensity, notwithstanding that
some of its buildings are over two
two miles apart in a continuous line.
Even the main buildings are not impressive in their magnitude when
viewed from their interiors, which
occurs from the internal subdivisions. It is these internal subdivisions which nfford such opportunities for ornamentation, and that,
therefore, lond tho peculiar charm I
have before referred to. At the
Centennial one might spend hours
in ono department (as, for example,
in the main building), and after the
first coup d'asil (taking in the immensity), the building would attract
but little attention or interest."

JUSTICE IN CHINA.
Bow the Law II Administered In the
"'   Celestial Empire.
In China no sentence can be imposed
upon a criminal until ho haa confessed the
crime, writes Bong Yen Chang in tho Chrfi-
tian Union. Even it found guilty, ho is
compelled to do that Various methods are
resorted to in order to compel him to make
a confession; I never turn any of these
methods practiced, but It la pretty well
known tbat they exist, and I draw from
English authoritiet for some information.
A criminal is obliged to plead hi a own caso.
He can havo tho assistance of a lawyer, or a
man learned in tbe law, who can instruct
him on hia trial, telling hlm what questions
to oak and what questions to avoid asking,
but lawyers have no itanding in the courts
of China as they have in thia part of tbo
globe. The witnesses in a criminal trial
are cross-examined, but tho prisoner must
conduct tbe examination himself. It can
therefore- be readily imagined tbat the legal
profession in China ia not one tbat brings
much gain to those who follow it Here it
is not only a lucrative vocation, but an honorable one besides. Borne of tbe greatest
statesmen in tho United States have come
from the ranks of tbe lawyers, while in
China the profession is largely composed of
a low class of men.
The highest crime known to Chinese law
is treason and that is punishable by death,
and the only form of executing sueh a sen*
tence is by decapitation. Tho criminal is
carried out in a box or cage, to tho placo of
execution. The crime of which be has boon
guilty, written on a piece of paper, la fastened lo a smalt stick wbloh is placed in bis
hair. Tbe sentence is oarried out by a regularly appointed executioner, one method
being to strike off the head while the criminal is kneeling. Sometimes, beforo the be*
heading takes place tho criminal Ib out on the
brpast and arms, and t<be additional punishment Is regarded as lending special ignominy to the sentence,
The reverence with whleh the Chinese regard tho aged, especially their own parents
and tutors, is well known. And in this, and
somo othor classes of crimes, relatives and
neighbors are often made to share tbe punishment provided in such cases. There was
a similar provision in regard to the punishment of theft under tbe early Saxon laws
of England.
Murder is punished by death, tbe killing
of a father, a mother or a preceptor being
the highest degree of tbat crime. From
early childhood tbe Chinese are taught to
bold in high reverence, not only their parents, but their preceptors. Teachers In
China are reverenced in about the same
way tbat clergymen are reverenced by re.
llgious persons in this part of the world.
In the caso of murder the neighbors and
relatives are compelled to share a part of
the responsibility. It should be said, however, that, though this la the law handed
down from very ancient times and whleh
can not bo changed, there are various methods by which the enforcement of it is evaded,
and judges are quick to give any legal advantage to tho relatives and neighbors, and
put tho whole penalty- on the criminal.
Theft is punished by imprisonment,
whipping or wearing what ia called the
eangtu, a square collar made of boards and
locked around the neck, resembling very
muoh the old English method of putting one
"in tho stocks." With this machine around
his neck the criminal is compelled to stand
in tho street near where the offense was
committed; each evening a constable takes
charge of him until the next morning, when
he is again taken out He fs kept thus on
public exhibition so that the publio may
know him In the future and be on tbelr
guard. ...,^,,     ,-s; .
Thero are two ways of whipping; the
flrst is on the cheeks. The culprit kneels
down, and is beaten with a leather strap
about twelve inches long by two or three
Inches wide. The second method fn thia
partof tho world would bo called "spanking," the instrument to do the work being
mado of bamboo, Ave feet long by two
inches wide. The number of blows ordered
on the obeek will be from twenty to thirty-,
in using the other method forty strokes is
tho highest number allowed bylaw. But,
with a shorter bamboo—about three feet
tong and one' inch wide—in the second
method of punishment, an indeflnato number of strokes can be inflicted.
Another form of punishment for the higher
crimes is strangulation. The condemned
i* fastened to a frame, his bands tied
behind; him, and he is strangled by means
of a rope fastened to a post against whlob
he supports himself. Sometimes a silken
cord is sont to him while he Is In prison,
being a hint that be can, if be chooses, be
bis own executioner.
State criminals are often banished to a
territory in the northwestern part of tho
Empire. Murderers and robbers with
political influence, or whose crimes may admit of extenuating circumstances, sometimes bave their sentences commuted to
banishment, and are obliged to reside In a
speciiiodpart of the Empire for a certain
period. Fighting, thieving and man-
■lauRi'ter are punished by a slighter form
of ox.ie, the offenders during their banishment being obliged to wear a badge, either
an iron rod several feet long, or a stone
weighing about ten pounds and hung
around their necks.

The life of a Congressman Is not an
altogether happy, one, judging from the
bxperlencen'recounted by many of tliem.
According to the Washington Star, a
member from Indiana was complaining
the other day of tho variety of subjects
his constituents wrote to him about.
He had just received a letter from a
Woman In hia dlstrlot, saying that her
husband had left her seven years ago ant.
asking tho Congressman to go to tho
census oflice and find hts present address,
Another, from ft fellnwcltlzen, nuked him
to write to- the American minister ut liume
and get him an Italian queen bee.
From which itwould eoem that there

ETHER'S INFLUENCE.
An Dltl Kul.ti.-Vi. Tlirllllng Experience Va*
.1. r the f. iirj_eon's Knife.
A gentleman recently operated on at a
private hospital for the removal ot the left
eye, tlio socket and membrane of which had
becomo tho seat of a cancer, tells the following interesting story of bis experience
under the knife to a Kew York correspondent:
"Thedoctors agreed that I had cancer,
and nothing but an extensive surgical operation could savo my life. I felt, on hearing
their decision, like a condemned murderer-
as though ut a certain day and hour I should
look for Lhe lost time ou earth and encounter
the'terrible.'
"' But it will not be painful,* sold the surgeon, with a pleasant smile. * You wilt be
under othor, you know.'
" Tho operation was to be done three days
after tho consultation that sealed my fate.
How I lived through thoso three days I can
not tell. I wondered If I would have tbe
courage to face tho ordeal coolly. I had
novor before thought myself a coward. 1
passed through twelvo battles during tbo
lato war and nevor shrank from danger.
But oh! a surgical operation, with all its
calm aud detailed preparation—all its awful
chances—Is quite another thing. To get on
a table, lie down and take ether, with the
knowledge that you aro about to have the
mostdellcate organ of your body carved out—
that, indeed, calls for courage. Liko the
man about to bo hauged, I folt anxious to
have It ovor —and was greatly afraid I
should lose all my grit at tho last moment
aud make a show ot myself. Still, there
was ono comfort-I should feel no pain;
ud my nerves felt much strengthened by
tho reflection, when I compared the surgical
operation of the present day with that of
fifty years ago, when it would have taken
■be strong mon to hold mo while my eye
was being literally gouged out and I was
writhing ln agony, couscious of It all.
" At last tho day of tho operation arrived.
I tay down on the operating table, and tbe
surgeon placed the ether cono oror iny
mouth and nostrils. I took a long, deep inspiration of the ether. It was cold ud
tasted good, tingling slightly as it entered
my lungs, and causing a peculiarly delightful thrill to pass ovor me. After taking, a
few more breaths I began to feel in a half
visionary stato. I thought I was in a hall
room filled with the gayest oompany* ud.
was tripping the fantastic to some dreamy
waits with tho fairest of the fair. Then 1
oould not resist singing. Noticing tho doctor look gravoly at mo, I came back at once
to the situation.
•-•Doctor,' I said, 'this, is delightful —
splendid 1* Just then something Beamed to
crock Inside my head. I could seo sparks
of firo flying all about mo. Every object in
tbe room was ina whirl. Tbe doctor and
his attendants seemed to be engaged In a
mod dance around mo, suoh as the caiini-
bals indulge in around their roasting missionary. Thon I had most horribto dreams.
I fancied that thedoctor was u murderer,and
that he had mado hts way into my room in
the night by means of an open window. I
saw the awful knife gleam in his hands ud
could feel .the cold blade as it descended
Into my stomach. Then I thought 1 was
taken to a dissecting room ud thero carved
up in the interest of science. Finally I
awoke, and the surgeon, bending over me,
cautioned me to remain motionless, .and at
the same timo assured me that the operation
had been successful."
The surgeon said: "The operation was
for cancer of tho eyeball and socket, and
necessarily a very delicate undertaking.
The patient took othor remarkably well
As soon as he was unconscious the orbit
was removed. The diseased plates ot bone
were thon carefully sawed away and the
operation completed. It does not scorn in
tolling of it how tedious it was. For three
hours wo worked constantly on tbo patient.
Much bleeding took place, and the work was
several times retarded by the {need of giving moro ether, as tho patient evidently felt
pain occasionally. As to tho dreams which
ho enjoyed while under other, thoy aro not
unusual It is a remarkable fact that physical memory continues white tho brain
sleeps or ts under au umosthottc. The operation was unattended with a single unr
favorable result, aud the ; patient awaits
only tbe time when tho wounds'shall be perfectly healed to have a glass eye put into
the socket"
PAST FINDING OUT.
the Ways of •' Woman Armed with an
Umbrella or Parasol.
Among the things enumerated by Solomon as post, finding out should lmve bcuu
included the way of a woman with un umbrella; and he who observantly walks the
Btreets in these days, when every member
of tho softer sex carries a suushinl.1, will
feel thut tho author of Ecclesluate*. missed u
golden opportunity in not being i.blc lu add
this Item to tho list of things too wonderful
for him.
Tho woman with u umbrella, in the first
place, says a writer in tho Boston funi-.cr,
assumes that the sidewalk Is laid down for
hor sole and especial use. Willi cerium
oriental potentates the umbrella is a sign ot,
authority iu virtue ot whleh all beholders
aro expected to understand that it is their
duty to miike way and givo tho roud to .He
exolutfivouso of the high and mighty lurd
of the umbrella. In virtue of scroo subtle
instinct tho moment a woman I takes in tier
hand a sunshade and walks abroad, ull the
oriental significance of thut insignia
seems to impress Itself upon her soul,
and she goes forth to take possession ot tho Btreets that havo become
hers by right Unfortunately she lacks
the guards whtch are provided to enforce respect to tbe unfurled, umbrella
of the potentates she imitates, and situ is,
therefore, obliged to do her own fighting.
But with what a glorious ud effective md
she does iti How meu who venture rashly
to como in her way are awept aside, 1 heir
hats knocked ln the dust, their eyes
prodded, their faces scratched by the points
with which the circumference of the pui...
sol bristles. How women who presumoto
display liko signs of rank ore hunt led,
banged and frowned upon, ud with what
rancor rival sunshades clash together. Tho
amount of vim a woman eau put Into (ho
thrust sho gives to tho sunshade of mint her
woman gooB far to redeem the churgo of
weakness and physical inferiority.
Tho result of tho triumphal progress of
women with a sun-umbrella is dlsustrons.
Her path is strewed with wroeks. Ilius-
pbomlngmen pursue thoir hats along tliu

Shorty" handed over tho gun nnd
Snow drow a "bead" on him'. A struggle ensued for possession of tho weapon, during which tho gun exploded,

The Opening Sm-lnl.
The congregational soiree iu connection with tho St. Andrew's (Presbyterian) church, hold last evening
was fully up to the expectations of tho
most sanguine in point of success.
Somo timo beforo the hour appointed
the now brick edifice was moderately
woll tilled with an expectant asssem-
blage, including representatives from
churches of other denominations,
At 8 o'clock tho Rev. Mr. Scouler,
paslor of tlio congregation, gave out
the 2nd paraphrase, which was sung
by tho choir to tho favorite old tune
'St. Paul," und wns followed with
prayers hy tho Rev. Mr. McRae.
Mr. Scouler said thnt ho had asked
Mr. J.S. Cluto to tnkotho chair.nstliat
gentleman was tho oldest member of the
Presbyterian church of New Westminster present, and therefore thu proper
person to preside on this occasion. Mr.
(.'hue said that, he was, as it wero, the
connecting link between the old and
tho now congregations, nud it gave
him pleasure on this occasion to act as
chairman aud ho would do tho heBt hu
could to fill the position He thon announced, ns the first item on tho programme, un anthem by tho choir,
"Thy Mercy O Lord." The chairman
then, in n few felicitous words, introduced tho Hew P. McF. McLeod, of
Victoria, who on rising congratulated
tho pastor and tho congregation on
their handsome edifice, just completed.
He hnd no doubt when they commenced this structuro that they entertained somo serious doubts us to accomplishing their object in such a
noblo manner, und he trusted that
they would always hear in mind that
that edifice had been consecrated to
tho worship of Almighty God. "For,"
siid Iho speaker, ''no do want that
this place should bo holy ground."
After tho rov. gentleman concluded
his remarks tho audience was entertained with tlmt beautiful song, "Tho
Better Land," given by Mrs. Lyul nud
rendered in a most pleasing stylo.
Tho Rov. Mr. White followed with a
short address, congratulating the congregation on tho completion of such a
handsome church. He said that they
had made laudable efforts during the
past six months, aud ho thought that
they should experience feelings of satisfaction and relief that their efforts
wore crowned with success. "Awake
tho Sweet Anthem" a quartette by
Mrs. Lyal, Miss Clarke, Messrs. Froo*
man and Ogle was v*ry nicoly sung.
Tho Rev. Mr. Ross, of Chilliwhnek,
also added n fow congratulatory re*
murks,and said that Ihe sound of ihceo
proceedings would go far beyond
whero they took place. A snerod
song, "Ho Glveth His Beloved Sleep,"
by Mr. Hugh Wilson, wns well rendered. Kev. Mr. Baldwin gave an address iu whioh he rujoiced with (he
congregation in the completion of tho
new church and complimented both
tho piiBtor and people. After tho
singing of tho 12th hymn, by Iho
whole asBcmblage, commencing with
the words "Praise ye Jehovuh, praiso
the Lord moat holy," addresses wore
delivered by Rov. Mr. Tait, Rov. Mr.
McRae, Rov. Mr. Huddon nnd Rev.
Donild Frascr,ull of whom added thoir
congratulations to thoso of tho previous speukers. A sacred solo, "Nu*/,*
oreth,',' by Mr. Lynl, wns givon iu one
of tho intervals between the speeches,
Tho 12th doxology, by tho congregation, brought the intellectual part of
the meeting to a clone. Mrs. Trow
presided nt tho organ, nnd, with the
choir, rendered most valuable service.
An adjournment was made tn tho
old churoh, whero tables loaded with
good things wero awaiting tho nttnek,
and before partaking of tho good things
Mr. David Lyal read an address, on
behalf of the congregation, to the Rev.
Mr. Thos. Scouler, setting forth tho
esteem and lovu in which the rev. gentleman was held by his flock, nnd asking, on their behalf, hia acceptance of
an eaBy chnir for himself nnd a silver
tea sorvico for Mm. Scouler. Tho
rev. gentleman, replying with apparent emotion and with almoat ill'
audable voico, thanked those who hud
subscribed towards this testimony.
The ladies, ns usual, hnd managed
to malfe the last pnrt of the programme
almost perfection. A very enjoyublo
hour was spentin discussing tho edibles and the soiree broke up shortly

to amend the Public School Act (Chap.
104, Consolidated Acts, 1888.) Second
reading Wednesday.
Mr. Bole nsked tho provincial secretary: Have tho recommendations of
tho following select committees of the
assembly, which wero adopted last
session, been fully carried out by the
government.     If    not,   why   not?
1. Committee on the claim of Geo,
Ditcham, adopted  25th April, 1888.
2. Committee un Iho claims of Louis
and E. Gold, adopted26th April, 1888.
3. Committee on tho claim of Samuel
Greer, adopted 27th April, 1888. Ans.
—1st. The improvements wero liberally valued and added to the upset
price, ut whioh price the land was
knocked down to the claimant. Tho
government regard this as a filial settle
ment. 2nd. In this case tho valuator
could find no improvements whatever
und the government have been unablo
;o discover any claim either in law or
equity. 3rd, A further examination
uf this case has only tended to
strengthen tho previous conviction
that thoro is uo claim cither in law or
equity.
Hon. Mr. Beaven esked why a question which he had asked yesterday,
and which the chief commissioner was
unready to answer, had been dropped
from the notice paper.
Hon, Mr. Vernon contended that
ho had answered that ho was unready
and therefore the leader of the opposition must give two days notice before
the question could be repeated.
Mr. Speaker—No, I disagree with
the hon, chief commissioner. The
answer to the question has been merely
deferred.
Hon. Mr. Robson, iu accordance
with a resolution of the house, brought
down papers and correspondence in
respect to the Dominion Franchise
Act.
House went into committee on the
summary procedure bill. After several clauses had been passed, down to
the schedules, a motion was made to
take the schedules ns road.
Hon, Mr. Humphreys, speaking to
this motion, proceeded to. severely
condem the general principles of the
bill.
Mr. Higgins, who occupied tlio chair,
objected to tbe principles of tho bill
being discussed and refused to hoar the
honorable member for Comux till hu
hud referred tho point to the speaker.
Tho speaker having taken tlie chair,
Mr. Bole explained * that he thought
the member for Comox had been
misunderstood,
Mr. T. Davie protested that tho
schedules should not be read.
Mr. Speaker—Schedules must bo
taken up ono by ono, and if any
honorable gentleman objects to taking
thom as read they must bo read.
Hon Mr Beaven—Beforo you leave
the chnir I must object to any chairman of a committee undertaking to
report whatever he thinks fit to- the
houso (laughter). The chairman made
this report altogether on his own
responsibility.
Tho chairman resumed the chair,
and tho committee proceeded lo rend
and consider the schedules.
Hon Mr Humphorys contended
that some of the provisions of the bill
were not in keeping with civilization ;
that tho proposition was practically
to go back to imprisonment for debt
and to commit tho debtor to hard
labor. Ho moved that schedule B be
amended by striking out "hard labor."
Mr T Davie claimed that there
should bo provision compelling witness
and orders to come into court.
Hon attorney general claimed that
under the conditions under which hard
labor would be inflicted it would bo
deserved.
At 5 o'clock the committee rose,
reported progress and asked leave to
