Chicago has a wonder in the shape
of a man who haB been arrested on
tho charge of bigamy. How a man
living in Chicago, where divorces
can be secured whilo you wait-
should be so thoughtless as to permit
himself to be arrested for having a
plurality of wives is indeed something strange. Is he crazy, or
merely tempting fate 1—Ex.
An exchange says: Mr. Goschen,
Chancellor of the British Exchequer,
besides being a brilliant financier,
must be a man of sound common
sense. This is proved by his recognition of the value of advertising.
He attributes tho decline of the consumption of coffee to the superior
advertising of cocoa, Mr. Goschen
being successful, knows the road to
success.
It is said that in un engagement
of cavalry in Virginia, Ouster and a
confederate oflicer had a hand-to-
hand battle, in which Custer's sword
blade broke off close to the hilt.
He cast away the useless fragment,
rode to a rail fencp, grabbed one of
the top rails, and, charging furiously
upon the astounded confederate,
knocked him from his horse. He
then replaced his broken sword with
the Toledo blade of the Southerner
and carried this to the day of his
death. 	
The telegraph brings the report
that a man is getting a barrel ready
in which he is going over Niagara
Falls. It ts somewhat early for the
trip, but it is understood that ho
expects a rush later in tho season,
and wants to go when ho can do so
in comfort. We suppose nothing
cau be more disagreeable than to go
ovor Niagara Falls when they aro
crowded, and have the barrels of
total strangers bumping against your
own. No person who loves to tra\el
quietly and unostentatiously will go
over Niagara during the busy season.

A Cincinnati despatch says:
Meredi-h Stanley, well-known
athlete and bridge jumper here,
yesterday made the most remarkable
leap on record. It was from the
famous high bridge on the Cincinnati
Southern Railroad over the Kentucky river. The height is 285 feet.
He selected a place where the water
was 12 feet deep. Attired in silk
tights and slippers he slipped into
the air and doubling up his body
like a ball, fell to the water and a
moment later bounded to the surface,
where he was quickly seized by
assistants in a boat. He coughed
blood for a little while, but soon
recovered and took the train for
Cincinnati. He says the feat is done
by knowing how and by perfect
self-confidence. Heescapcd without
breaking the skin, and Bays he feels
as well as over. The bridge is the
highest in the world except one.
A plucky Yankeo cotemporary
talks in this hearty fashion to its

town for ull there is iu it; got up

TERRIBLE ACCIDENT
On the Grand Trunk Railway Near
Hamilton, Out., and Fifteen
Lives Lost.
The Bodies Burned Beyond Recognition. The Damage to Rolling
Stock is Enormous.
Two Vessels Race for 101! Bays und
Reach Port Within 10 Minutes
of Each Other.
A TKIUtlULK ACCIDENT.
Hamilton, Ont., April 29.—The
worst accident which lias occurred on
the Grand Trunk Railway for a great
many yenrs, took place lust evening
at 7 o'clock, about three miles west of
this city. Tho engine of the St. Louis
express from Windsor to Suspem-ion
bridge, jumped the truck at the junction
out, and pitched into a water tank.
The bssgage and smoking car in rear
telescoped and immediately took lire,
Before the passengers could be got out
or any assistance rendered, tho Ure
quickly communicated to the cars in
the rear and soon four moro cars were
ubliize. The passengers, however,
mantled to Ret out of (he litter four,
and tried to save those iu the burning
smoking ear, but without success. The
wrecking of tho water tank cut off the
supply of water to a very large extent
snd what water could be got had to be
applied by moans of pails. There
were one hundred and fifteen passengers nnd train hands on bourd, und of
these about thirty passengers were in
the Bniokiii** car. As far us lias been
learned thirteen passengers got uut of
the smoker, two were killed instantly,
ono of thom being L. S. Gurney, who
was on his way from Chicago to New
York and the other an Italian, name
unknown. The remains of fifteen
bodies have been taken nut of the
wreck, whioh with tho 2 killed und 13
rescued, all more or less wounded,
makes up the thirty who are supposed
to be all that were in tho smoker.
None of the train hands were seriously
injured. The worst injured was Edwin Chapman, of London, a firemun,
who had his right arm burned and a
scalp wound. None of tho fifteen who
wero taken out of tho wreck after the
fire have been identified. It iB doubted if any of them will for some days, as
the remains are charred beyond all
recognition. Many of them were
mangled horribly before the fire, and
almost all of them were taken out in
pieces. The whole fifteen were huddled together in the forward end of
the smoking car. The baggage car
jumped right over the top of the engine and it landed down on the track
about a hundred yards ahead of it.
Tho railway and city authorities have
done all in their power to help the
wounded. Twelve of them have beon
removed to the. city hospital and
tho others had their wounds dreis-
ed at tho station and went on their
way by a special train. It is not likely
that any of the wounded will die, Tho
remains of the 15 burned bodies were
brought to the city and taken to the
morgue. An inquest hns been ordered
and will bo opened to-morrow morning.
An investigation shows that as far as
can be learned there was no negligence
on the partof the railway company.
The train simply jumped the track at
tho "frog." The engineer and fireman did not jump because they hud no
time. They were got out from undor
the debris with difficulty und it is miraculous how they escaped. The baggageman and ex press man, Jumes Welch
and Fred. Dumass, hoth of Niagara
Falls, ware in'the car which jumped
over the engine, yet neither of them
were hurt. The screams of the men
who were being burnod to death in the
smoking car could be hoard abo.*e tho
noise nf escaping steam aud the roaring of tho flames. Conductor W, H.
Poole, of London, says the train was
15 minutes lute, but was not running
more than 20 miles an hour when
the accident happened as all orders
are that trains must not run at
that particular place more than twenty
miles an hour. The place where the
accident happened is considered a
dangerous one, as there is a switch ou
a rather sharp curve and hence the
precaution of running slowly. 7 cars,
including 1 baggage, 2 flrst-class
coaches, a smoker, a hrst-claas duy
coach and 2 Wagner sleepers were
burned, there being uot a vestige of
wood or anything that would burn
left. Ono baggage car waa demolished and the engine was the most completo wreck imaginable. The loss to
the company will bo enormous. Many
of thoso ou the train were on their
wny to New York to tako part in the
centenuiul festivitie*'. Among them
wus a part of the Detroit light infantry and imno i f thom were injured
with tho exception of one who got n
sl'glit cut over his eye.   Mi-st of  the
Iiasscngers lost all or portions of their
luggage and clothing, and u huge
amount of tho mails were h-st   by tire.
GUILTY.
Butte, Mon., April 29. -Tho juiy in
the case of Roso Bennett, the courtesan on trial for tho murder of Frank
Graver, at Anaconda, hi December
lust, nftor fourteen hours' deliberation
have brought in u verdict uf guilty of
murder in the Becond degree und fixed
tho punishment nt twelve years imprisonment in the penitentiary. Graver
visited Roso Bennett's house and got
into a dispute about the state of Rhode
Island. Tho woman wagered a small
amount of money that Rhode Island
was not in the U. S., and when the
bet was decided against her she picked
up a revolver lying on a bureau in her
room and shot Graver dead.
TWO COLLISIONS.
San Francisco, April 29.—There
wero two collisions on the bay this
morning. First the British ships
Duntillan aud Queen Victoria camo to-
f;ethor, one of tho vessels breaking
rom hor anchorage and drifting on to
the other. Two boats cleared them
before any great damage was done.
Shortly afterwards the British ship
Cressington collided with tho bark
Forest Queen, Both vessels wore
slightly damaged.
HARRISON HONORED,
Elizabeth, N. .1., April 29.-Tho
presidental train arrived here at 7:25
o'clock after a 6 hours' journoy from
Washington, Tho weather is cloudy,
with occasional showers and sunshine.
Immense crowds throng the Union depot and along the street! leading to
Governor Green's residenco, where the
president took breakfast. All residences, atores and hotels from Cheery
at. to Elizabeth port are gaily decked
with flags and bunting. Three triumphal arches span the streets at different points, one of whioh is called a
"Living Arch," and on which was
stationed 49' pretty girls, dressed to represent the 42 states and 7 territories,
who throw flowers at the president as
ho passed under. The parade procea-
siou was most imposing. Nearly 5,-
000 marched in line, including the 3rd
regiment, New Jersey militia, members of the G. A. R., Oddfellows,
Knights of Pythias, Knights of St.
John and 13 boys in continental uniform, Ancient Order of Hilbernians;
numerous floats reprerentiug comparisons of farming implements of 100
yenrs ago and of to-day; men in costumes of the old time carrying scythes
and sickles. The Elizabeth fire department, ton companies strong, made up
the lust division. A reception was
held nt Green's houao for nearly un
hour. At 9 o'olock the president took
the sent of honor on the review ing stand
built on the lower endof Green's mansion, and reviewed the procession.
A WONDDitftJL RACE.
New York, April 29.—After a race
of 168 days from Manila, Phillipine
Islands, the ships John McLeod uud
Paul -Revere dropped anchor only ten
minutes apart in New York harbor today.
. THK* KEW YORK  CENTENNIAL.
New York, April 29. —The centenuiul celebration, commemorating tho
one hundredth anniversary of the inauguration of Washington as first
president, begun to day, when the flrst
parade of a series of three, the  naval
{iRgeant, occurred. The skies were
owering from early morning, but
every available place for sight seeing,
every wharf, every high building with
a roof commanding an unobstructed
view of the lower bay and the North
and East Rivers, waa crowded. At 8
o'olock this morning nine war ships,
seven revenue cutters, a fleet of steam
yachts, and other vessels carrying cannon, fired a solute of 21 guns in honor
of the president This was responded
to by the guns on Fort Columbus aud
and Governor's Island. About an
hour later the steamer Despatch started with the reception committee to
meet the presidental party at Elizabeth
port. By 10 o'clock the weather was
all that could be asked, the clouds
broke away, the sun shone brightly, n
brisk breeze fluttered the flags and
gave whito caps to the curling

decked with flags and s-gnalf*, made a

THE CHURCHES.
HOLY TRINITY CHURCH.
The services at Holy Trinity ohurch
last evening wero conducted by his
lordship Bishop Sillitoe, who took for
his text St. John 20th chap. 19th verse:
'-Then the sime day at evening, being
the first day of the week, when the
doors were shut where the disciples
were assembled for fear of the Jews,
came Jesus and stood in the midst,
and faith unto them, peace be unto
you." When our Saviour on that flrst
Good Friday cried in anguish "It is
finished" it meant that He had completed His whole work ot atonement,
lhe work God had given Him to do;
and yet we find Him three days later
still clinging to tho earth. He goes
back where He was before. How
much better would it have been for
Him to depart and bo with His Father;
and yet we find Him all these days
with His disciples. Now let us look
at the resurrection life of our dear
Lord. First we seo that it was a life
of separation. Until His death on the
cross Jesus wss with His disciples at
all times, but afier His resurrection
He only appeared to them at intervals. He livedapart and separately with
Gud. This does not mean that we ure
to go out of the world iu order to be
good. It is possible for every man
and woman to choose the proper path
and atill be of the world He lived
in a separato world in the Spirit. Our
separate life is a failure, we even failing to make a success of that awful
day consecrated by God to the sacrifice of His Son. We find another
characteristic of the resurrection life
of Christ, In peace. His resurrection
life nas a life of breathing peace.
There can be no peace without God;
tho heart cannot know peaee except it
conies from the Holy Spirit. Peace!
what does it mean? It is repose and
quietness, and it only comes to those
who follow Christ. How we all need
tho real peace in our hearts so that
our desires aro only pure aud holy.
That peace must not bo vanishing, but
a pence that will last with us forever.
There should be no satisfaction to tho
soul except in making peace. How
good it was of Him to attach a special
blessing to thoso who make peace, but
how fow of us take advantage of this
blessing. If wo sro to livo tho higher
resurrection lifo we must livo in
peace. Another characteristic of
tho resurrection lifo ia testimony.
When He showed His bands it was to
testify He was Christ the crucified.
This ia another part uf our resurrect ion
life—testifying to Jesus. It means
going forth every day on our religious
work. Not onco in a whilo during a
term of religious excitement, but evory
day, carrying our cross; and we must
practice humiliation nnd mcokuess.
He told us: "Let your light so shine
before men that they may see your
good work." If every soul baptized
into Christ were to go forth for one
day bearing the cross, there would be
no pardon needed. But weare afraid
men will look on us and laugh, and
wo hide our light under a bushel. The
resurrection life is a life consecrated to
Christ. Religion gives the greatest
comfort; if it does no more, it gives
man rest and peace in communion with
God. Think of the life of Christ, His
work oo the cross ind His reiurrreo-
tion.
METHODIST  CHURCH,
At the Methodist churoh yesterday
morning Rev. Mr. Hioks (the boy
preacher) assisted in the services,
speaking from 1st Corinthians 13 chap.
13 verso, "And now abideth faith,
hope, charity, these three; but the
greatest of these is charity," He said :
These an the three graces, that St,
Paul, writing to the church at Corinth,
says "Ye now havo abiding in you,"
and being of necessity connected, cannot be sundered. Hope may be spoken
of as the daughter of faith; and charity
and love as the outcome of both, Tbey
are the creatiro trinity, and are a dim
resemblance of the trinity unoreate,
We boliove in God for His goodness,
and hope for his mercy and love. Faith
is the grace by whioh we receive from
our Heavenly Father what he has to
bestow. "The just shall live by faith;"
active faith, moving faith. Stagnant,
still, waters are full of pestilence, and
we speak of them as dead, while the
water that iB bubbling, rippling, flowing, we speak of as living, and our.
faith can be tested by the same princi-'
pie. Faith is evideueed by its works;
for. if faith be without works it is dead
(devils have this kind of faith and
tremble), and though we may have
faith and understand all the mysteries
surrounding the plan of salvation, and
have not charity, wo are aa hindrances,
and cannot obtain to the higher calling
whioh ib in Christ Jesus, and cannot
witness to HiB glory; for it is in tbe
Gospel walk and practice that taith is
witnessed. Blessed is the man who
hath hope, the outcome of faith, it is
influential in gaining the greater profit
in the divine life. As tho merohant
or soldier hopes for success, how much
more effectual ihould be the hope of
the Christian, and where Christians fail
to achieve, it is from luck of hope.
Charily, sayH tho apostle, never fails :
all other gifts may fail in our expectation of them, but charity shall never
fail; und the Christian, who actuated by
lovo, lets out of his soul sympathy, and
support, ahall find his charity lives for
ever. You cannot overreach, you cannot mistake the outcome, and the
apostle Paul says "it will cover a multitude of sins." Don't judge others
uncharitably, refuse to see the small
faults and failings of others. The
touchstone of charity is, never to interpret the actions of others as against
thom. Then, as to tbe charity of giving, God, whose resources aro unbounded, yet gives His only Son to die for
us; so that in return we ahould give
our time, means nud help; for what we
give to the poor we entrust to the best
of caretakers (the Lord), and He will
lay it all up in heaven for us, and there
is the assurance that "he thnt givetb to
the poor shall not lack.' Then let ua
cultivate charity, und it will become
tho habit of the soul, and in contemplating the lovo ot God we shall learn
to love oue another. Faith and hope
respect ourselves alone, but the in- *
fluenco of charity is unbounded.
At the evening service the Rev. Mr,
White delivered a very practical discourse which we cannot give justice to
for want of space, on the parable of
the loBt sheep, (15* Luke 1 to 7v.), and
in the course of his remarks pointed
out that the joy of the shepherd at tho
finding the one lost sheep was more
out of love for the sheep tban for its
intrinsic value, and that this search
fur and reclaiming of the lost seemed
to him the errand of tho church, and
that the great effort of a minister's life
should be to reach and save the outcast, for he had found that some rf
the brightest gems in the church had
been gathered from thoso whom it almost seemed impossible to bring to
God. The rev. gentleman said: I
have heard of some churches in Toronto and New York that did not want
this class; but the majority of churches
want the poor and outcast to come,
and the few that would grumble at
their coining 1 would like to see them
build a church for themselves and go
through their genuflections alone, t
take tlie ohurch to be n hospital, and
while one man may die, just think of
tho great number who get cured.
There ure some jackals iu the world,
always lookiug around for the dead.
Don't bang around the dead house,
just cast your eyes around and you
will find some that hare beon healed.
Don't look around hore for the dead,
but go up before the throne of God
aud see those that have gone up from
this congregation, healed for ever.
Look on the bright side a little, and
suy as little as you can about the faults
of others, and Bee that it is your work
as well as tho work of the church to
reclaim the men and women that are
going down to death. These belong
to Christ; they have only gone astray,
and I wish wo could impress this upon
these loBt ones, and that Christ Bays
His grace can save to the uttermost
all that come unto God by Him, Ask
Jesus the way.
While's ExpiaaifloB.
A Tacoma despatch says:—In conversation with an intimate friend of
Captain White, late commander of tbe
steamer Premier, who absconded from
Seattle some montbs ago, it wu learned that his own statement of the
trouble waa that ho used the $10,000,
which was the extent of his shortage,
in purchasing opium, to be smuggled
into this country. Ho had the whole
of the opium ou board the Bteamer on
bis laat trip to Seattle, and when he
roaohed Port Townsend received warning that tho vessel would be seized' on
ita arrival at Seattle, as tho customs
authorities had been informed of tbo
presence of opium on the boat, He,
therefore, according to his own statement to his friend, Bet to work and
Ihrew the whole consignment of opium
overboard through a port bole, and,
when the vessel arrived at Seattle, the
custom officers were unable to find any
opium on board, aud no seizure could
bo mode. Finding that the money
was all lost, he telegraphed his brother
lo furnish him with funds to make
good his shortage, and, that uot arriving in time, he left for St. Paul, where
he hod but (35 on his arrival. He
thon started around the world, and only arrived at Port Townsend a few
days ago. He has shipped as fint
officer of tho steamer Libby, under
Captain Beechor, and has stated that
he will work in every way so as to fix
up the shortage as quickly at possible.
Ex*policeman Jarvis, of Toronto,
whoso name is connected with that of
the Rev. W. F, Wilson, in the celebrated "move on" case, wai convicted
at tho criminal assizes for assault on
drover Hortchey at Weston some time

Msdaur, a French-Canadian, who
eloped with a pretty maiden named

effected, by which the lady retained
with her brother, and Madaur paid all
expenses to obtain his releue. An

Tho pressing necessity for street
opening and improvements which
exists, and the difficulties and objections which have arisen with
respect to the streets debentures
scheme, which it was hoped would
havo resulted differently, will doubtless move the council, in the interest
of the city, to tako immediate steps
for borrowing a sum sufficient to do
at least some of tlie work required.
A great deal of discretion nnd wise
discrimination will have to be exercised in the proper apportionment
of the loan to the various sections of
the city demanding street improvements, and we trust that the council
may, disinterestedly, undertake this
difficult task, and when they have
done their best they should have the
support, and not the censure and
factious opposition of the ratepayers.
It mar be necessary for the different
sections to give and take a little,
but there is no good reason why an
harmonious arrangement should not
be arrived at, provided all parties
concerned will but dilute their natural and excusable selfishness with
about three parts of publiu-spirited-
ness. This is a good prescription
for such cases, and does not require
further recommendation. To particularize a little, there can be no
doubt, we think, that the best in
terests of the city would dictate that
the great bulk of tho proposed loan
should be spent for opening streets
in the outskirts, where, by reason of
present population, the want is most
felt, and as little as possible for improving streets already in fair condition. Wc think, also, that tho
loan should not be loss than tho
amount we mentioned Saturday.
The board of electrical control of
New York city have brought tho
long controversy with tho telegraph
and electric lighting companies to a
closo by tho heroic method, ns nn
Ameiican cotemporary puts it.
After dancing attendance upon the
corporations for several years, issuing orders and receiving limited
recognition, the obstructing wires
wero cut and the poles were chopped
down, and. the electric companies
are now laying their wires in conduits or subways under ground,
which have been prepared for the
purpose over a large area. Commenting on the aubject, an exchange
says: The leading electricians admit
the necessity for subways and the
perfect practicability of solving the
problem of insulation which will not
retard working and will prevent interference. Aside from the obstruction in the streets and the consequent hindrance to the work of fire
departments, the danger to life and
property from the propinquity of
the wires of electric lighting companies is naturally urged as the chief
objection to the overhead system.
Not all currents are dangerous, The
dangerous wires are those which
bear a wavy or pulsating current,
either high or low tension, and especially dangerous , are the currents in
which impulses are given first in
one direction and then in the opposite direction, thousands of times a
minute. This is death. Dynamo
electric generators, with open circuit
armatures, cause a majority of all
the deaths which occur.from electric
lighting wires. The steady circuit,
however, is not always safe, for it
becomes dangerous by its potency
when it has moro than fifty lamps
in the series The deathful alternating system is most to be dreaded,
for if the circuit wire is grounded
personal contact means death. This
alternating current has been severely
condemned by leading electricians.
It is adopted because a smaller wire
can be used, mul the expense to the
companies is less. The ^danger does
exist, and while, perhaps, the overhead system cun be mndo safe if tho
wires were strung properly, insulated
properly, kept clear from ground
contacts on buildings or trees, everybody knows that such care is not
taken by.the overhead wire owners,
The * wires' are Btr ung recklessly.
Dead wires abound. Absolute"carelessness exists. Certainly if the
companies will not take care to insure safety in their overhead system,
' the public interest requires that,
after due notice and time to prepare
: for the change, they should be
obliged to go into subways.
Now that the newspapers are taking an interest in ah expedition, the
north pole will soon cease to be the
lonely spot it has been for so long.
Mr, Alphonse Leduc, who accompanied   Lord  Lonsdale part of the
way fn bis perilous expedition over
the  Arctic wildi, was in Chicago
recently, on his way eatt, with his
head full of big ideal, for the purpose of organizing an overland expedition to the nortii polo.   Mr.
Leduu will be "grub staked" in hit
arduous undertaking by a syndicate
of newspapers.   He is quite enthusiastic on the subject, and to a representative of  the Chicago Times
stated that, from his experience with
Lord Lonsdale, he is of the opinion
that with funds and material he oan.
reach the pole in an incredibly short
time. Ho thinks that with SOO men
he can keep up a line of communication between his advance guard and
civilization, and periodically let the
world know of his movements. He
proposes to make his headquarters
on the peninsula of Boothia, which
is connected with the mainland.
Between Boothia and Winnipeg he
proposes to establish a lino of couriers. The distance is about 1,500
miles, but there arc, it is stated, no
obstacles in the way of keeping this
line open, and intelligence can be
received every few days of the advance made by the expedition that
makes Boothia its base of operations.
With stations along the line and n
good supply of dog-teams, the distanco from Boothia to the nearest
railroad or telegraph to Winnipeg
can be covered in from ten to twelve
days. It will not require more than
iifty men to operate this part of the
line. Mr. Leduc said that ho was
on his way to New York, on the
invitation of a newspaper syndicate,
whose intention it was to interest a
number of newspapers in the scheme
and to divide the expenses, which it
is expected will amount to between
8500 and $600 a day, as the expedition would push ahead with all tbo
rapidity possible. The men in front
would feel encouraged, and, knowing
that they were in constant communication with civilization, would
have no fear of starvation, as depots
with ample supplies will be established along the entire line, and the
sleds be kept employed replenishing
the supplies at the stations. Mr.
Leduc further outlined the scheme
as follows: "We intend to advance
on the same principles as an invading army. We will send out a corps
of men, and after they have reached
a certain distance, which will be
determined upon, they will receive
instructions to form a depot and
send back word as soon us they come
to a halt. Another body carrying
provisions will then be sent forward,
and on their arrival the first gang,
who have by this time been well
rested, will start out and form another station and keep up a line of
communication with the first. Dog
teams will bo kept constantly on the
run between the stations, bringing
down dispatches and currying supplies in food, fuel and clothing. It is
our intention to work this thing systematically and provide every comfort possible for the men. Weare
fully confident that our task can bo
accomplished without any hardship.
A reserve force will be retained at
the depot and the men will bo kept
constantly on the move, and those
in front will have an opportunity to
come to tho main depot for rest nnd
change, and we intend to make it as
comfortable as possible. This can
only be accomplished by a regular
system of inter-communication with
our source of supplies. By the
method we adopt to let the world
know what we are doing, we can get
the news nnd lettersfrom civilization,
which will be a great comfort to
those in advance, When 1 was
with Lord Lonsdale I studied carefully the subject of transportation
and protection tigninst cold. 1 have
given my mind to this work and
havo invented a covered sled that
will be a boon in the Arctic regions."
Mr, Leduo's sled, a model of which
he has constructed, resembles a
cracker box on runners. It is made
of thick pasteboard, which he says is
exceedingly light and impervious to
the cold. In the front is a glass
window, nnd an opening in the side
which can be closed with a slide.
Through this the driver thrusts his
arm when he wishes to whip up the
dogs. A full-sized sled is large
enough for two men to sit in and
three to sleep in. On the top is a
contrivance,also made of pasteboard,
which can be unfolded on either side
of the sled, and being banked by the
snow, formE comfortable quarters
for the dogs. Tho runners consist
simply of u broad toboggan, and between thu bottom of the sled and
that of tho toboggan a considerable
space exists for carrying provisions.
Alphonse Leduc certainly seems to
have grasped the idea, in all its details, for a successful polar campaign,
and we trust that, with the assistance of the enterprising newspaper
men, he may "get there," right side
up, and have the honor of hoisting
the first flag on the north pole.

ANNUAL BEPORT OP THE
CIIFINIAMI LIFE
JLSSOCIA.TI03ST
For the Year Ending   31st December,  1888.
In presenting tho Seventeenth Annual Report of the Association, your Directors
arc glad that they ean congratulate tbe Policy-holders and Share-holders on the
sutlsfi'clnry results which tlm report nnd financial statement show. They have
nothing startling to report, as the conservative principles which hnvo guided tho
operations of Iho Company In the pnst have been kept steadily ln view, though lliey
lmve had to contend with Iho Apparent determination of many companies to get business al any cost, nnd in any way, a practice which Is having a demoralizing effect on
both the agents aud the public.
During tho yenr the bnard bus had under consideration 1831 applications fora total
assurance of $2,730,808- of these, 121 for 8100,600 were declined. The total new issue for
the year, including 1*5 policies for S-17,535 revived, was 1,7,"5 for $2,027,843. Tlio total business in force at tlie closo of the year was SHJ,7G2,0W, under 10,8*1 policies on fl.r-SO lives.
The dentil claims have been favorable. There were 07 deaths, calling for the sum of
SlViMi.09, including bonus additions. The following statement of tho death claims
for the past eight years, and the receipts for Interest and rents during tliu same period
will doubtless prove Interesting to persons already connected with the Company,
nnd will be wolf worth tbe consideration of Intending Insurers:

lhcsellgures show that for lhe past eight years, tho interest and rents actually
received have paid thodonlh claims and left a balanoe over of 532,012.70. If, to the
foregoing, tliei o be udded the H-j-nies for tbo previous nine years of the Association's
exlKii-nci-, it will be found Hint the interest and rents have not only paid the death
claims from the outset, but leave a surplus of 814,78101, a result which your directors
believe has never before been attained ln tbo same period of time. Hueh a result
bonis the most omphntio testimony to two things, namely, carefulness in HiCKclec*
l.ion of risks, and the satisfactory character of tho Company's Investments. Your
directors do not think it prudent to enter forthe race for new businoss nt any cost,
belugsatisfledlnsecurenfalr share nn conservative lines, Asa result, substantial
progress lins been made, and the Company's stakes in every way strengthened. Ill
Mils your directors are convinced that they are best carrying oul the true principles
of a life insurance Institution. Tbe financial statement, duly attested, submitted
herewith, will fully exhibit tlie Company's condition. Mr. John Langton, who has
been one of the auditors forsome years, having felt it necessary to resign, owing to
ill-health, Mr. W. it. Harris wns appointed tothe vacancy,nnd with Mr.John M.
Martin has continued tlie audit
Your director-- arc pleased to refer to the continued faithfulness of tho agency and
oflice stall' In both of which some important changes hnvo taken place.
All the directors retire, but are eligible for re-election.

CONCERNING   HEREDITY.
IlltiHtrnlloiiH ot the Law of Ti-aishuiiaulon
frcni i'nreuU to Ohlldien.
'flic sti-engtU of tbo iuw which determines the Ira na mission ol character—pbys*
Ical or otherwise— from parents to children
is still far from receiving due attention and
recognition, sayB Chambers* Jnurndt. A
striking Instance of inheritance Ib often
hailed as wonderful and inexplicable; jot
bucIi CU3CS ore meroly enag-j/at-ated examples of a phenomenon of whieh every family—nay, every, individual-affords proof.
We aU Inherit, in a more or leas variable
degree, tho physical constitution and tho
menial aptitudes af our parents- but this
law of Inheritance is liable to uo much modification that frequently its operations bo-
comes entirely lost to view. When two
forces act upon a body ihe resultant ia a
mean between the two tomponeiits. This
mean is not merely ia all ca*>ea dlfterent
.from either component, but it ib a variable
menr. the variation aepor.atng upon tho rel
utive strength of the two component forces.
Inheritance aflordB an exact i-wallal Lo this
eiementary law of mee'nanics, No chila la
entirely like either parent; and thn inheritance of two sets of tondoncies which map
bo allied to each other may result in char-
actors possessed by neither parent, This
result Ib no breach of law of inheritance,
but is in strict harmony with its most precise conditions; yet it is not surprising that
a law subject te such indefinite variation
should gain scanty recognition except from
those who havo made it a special study,
and can, therefore, readily distinguish
an explicable exception to a law from
an actual breach of it. Cases aro on record
of families whose members arc characterized by tbe possession of a supernumerary
digit on tho hands and feet, and this remarkable peculiarity has beon transmitted
through Ave generations, showing how
strong is the force of Inheritance in even
suoh a-minor detail of structure A still
more singular instance Is that of Lambert,
the well-known "porcupine man," whose
skin was thickly covered with warty projections, which were periodically molted.
He had six children who were similarly
affected; and two of his grandsons inherited
tho strange peculiarity; The writer is acquainted with a gentleman who bad a
mark-id drooping of the left eyelid, Eia
son inherits this peculiarity, but in a leas
remarkable degree. One of the most singu.
lar instances of inheritance is that rccardea
by Decandolle. There was a family ln
France of which the leading rept-jscui.ii
tives could, when a youth, pitcU several
hooks from his head by the movement of
the scalp alone, and he used to win wagers
by performing this feat. His lather, uncle,
grandfather aud his three children possessed the same power to tho same unusual
dogreo. This family became divided eight
generations ago into two broaches, 30 that
the head of the above-meatioued branch is
cousin in the seventh degree to tlio head of
tho other branch. This distant cousin resided in another part of Franco, and on being asked whether ho possessed tho same
faculty immediately exhibited his power.
Haller, tho celebrated physiologist, records Lhat tho family of the Bentivogho all
possessed a tumor, wldoh used te swell
when a damp wind blow, and this peculiarity was transmitted from father to son. Tho
frequency among the Romans of surnames
indicating some physical peculiarity—Naso,
Lubeo, fiucco, Caplto—would seem to show
that the fact of certain types of features
being transmitted through several generations had already beon remarked. Tliis
fact lies almost unnoticed under many current forms of expression. We Bpeak of a
certain typo of face boing aristocratic or
the reverse, V>v which wo moon that physical featuros characterizing certain classes
arc transmitted so surely as to becomo tho
recognized appanage of thoso classes. Tho
aristocracy of western Europe prido them-
solvos upon possessing and transmitting
small hands, tho outward and visible sign
of long exemption from manual labor. The
aristocracy of China pride themselves on
the Biiialluess of their feot. The implication
lu oach caso is the same, We often speak
of "bluo blood" without, any clear idea of
tho meaning of tho expression, The phraso
probably arose from tho recognition of
tbo fact that the aristocratic and luxurious classes, who are exempt from actual labor, Ipossoss a fine white skin, through
which the veins show themselves clearly,
and this peculiarity is transmitted from gen-
oration to generation. .It is a fact of history
that Frederick William I. of Prussia succeeded In producing a stock of gigantic
grenadiers, he matching hia tallest soldier.;
with womon of similar proportions.
No point of structure is too minute to afford instances of the law of Inheritance. A
littlo spot on the iris has been transmitted
from parent to child. The possession of a
few abnormally long hairs In tho oyebrows
has been known to characterize the various
members of certain families; and tho characteristic of a patch of prematurely gray
hair has boon transmitted through several
generations. Many curious records exist
of families which possessed and gloried in
their scars, moles and other family marks,
faithfully transmitted from parent to child
—a sort of secret hall mark stamped by nature to attest the genuineness of the line.
In the realm of disease tho facts of inheritance are most numerous and are daily accumulating. Here thoy are no longer, alas,
curious and amusing, but terrible, fateful,
overwhelming. No fact of nature is moro
pregnant with awful moaning than tho
foot of the inheritance of disease. It meets
the physician on his daily rounds, paralyzing
his art and filling him with sadness. Cancer and scrofula run strongly in families.
Insanity is hereditary to a marked degree;
■ but, fortunately, like manyothor hereditary
diseases, tends to wear itself out, the stock
becoming extinct. Nearly all defects of
sight are occasionally inherited. Sir Henry
Holland says truly that "no organ or texture of tho body is exempt from, the chanco
of being tho subject of hereditary disease."
Probably most chronic diseases which permanently modify tbe structure and functions of the body are more or loss liable to
bo inherited.
How Apothecaries Manage to Keep Soul
and Body Together.
One of the most important trades carried
on in this city is tho drug trade, Evory ono
is interested in this trado. It employs millions of dollars in capital and affords a living
to thousands of peoplo.  A reporter for
■ tho Now York .Vail and Express recently visited 11 largo drug storo with tho view of
learning something of tho Insldo workings
of a trado of such Importance. Tho man of
drugs was busily engaged In filling o proscription. When he was at leisure, in answer to a question as to the cost of tho prescription, he said:
11 Now thero Is a compound that is composed of exactly four ingredients, One of
these ingredients at wholesale costs exnetly
t\vo conts, tho second ono cent, tho third two
cents and the fourth three cents, making a
total of eight cents."
" How much will you charge your customer for that proscription!"
" Ffty-flve cents. A handsome profit, but
then you see tho customer pays forty-sovon
cents for tho fifty-five for my oxperlenco as
) an apothecary. Men in other professions do
tho same as wo do in this respect. For instance, a physician will look at your tongue
mul feel your pulso and demand a fee of
from tJ2 to 15, according to tho length of your
purso and his standing In socioty. It ho Is
a high-toned ov fashionable doctor, you may
think yourself fortunate if you escape with,
out being Oharged moro than 15. It's the
same with a lawyer. You visit his oflice,
obtain his advice in a simple matter and occupy his time for about fifteen mlnutos, he
wants you to pay $U5 or 150. Now, I have
performed as muoh real servico as a doctor
<*' or a lawyer, and all tho compensation I ask
Is the small pittance of fifty-flvo cents,
" Is the sale of patent medicines increasing!"
" Yos and no. Patent medicines havo
fashions tho same as spring bonnets, It Is
not always tho best medicine that has tho
largest sale. A few years ago a man prepared a mixture that temporarily deadened
pain. It was injurious, for It tended to produco paralysis, Tho man advertised it far
and wido, and he made a fortuno in a vory
Bhort timo. His pain annihtlator was
known and used ln almost evory family.
Liko tho Roman Empire, it had its rise and
fall. Now nobody thinks of using it. In
fact, it It not-oven manufactured,"

A $-!0,c:liK'oiKl riiiusc
The Hon. John Iti bson, provincial
secretary, wns interviewed this morning by a representative of The Cor,-
tJMAiAX, The hon. gentleman stated
that his visit to tho mainland was for
the purposo of arranging some important school matters in Vancouver, and
to consult with tho Westminster council on the recent arrangements concluded botween tho two bodies. Speaking about the court house, Mr, Robson said tho government had no intention of brenk ing faith with Westminster.
Only 810,000 wub voted for tho court
house, and it was afterwards found thu
appropriation was not sulliciontly large
to erect and furnish the building required, and that fully S2O,O0O would
liavo to bo expended nn it, Tho absolute necessity of enlarging the provincial insane asylum nnd tho
uocomty of making a completo
job of it, resolved tho government to
expend $40,000 in improving tlmt institution, and at tho samo time it was
decided to defor the erection of the
court houso until nextyoar when $20,-
000 for that purposo will be voted.

Confederation Life.
The seventeenth nunual report of t he
Confederation Life Assuranco Association is published. Tho careful, conservative business methods which have
characterized this association sinco its
inception hare beon continued ; -.nd
the results are such as cannot fail to bo
highly satisfactory to all concerned.
The total policies in force numbered
10,896 fur tho sum of $16,702,937-a
magnificent business record when it is
borne in mind thut every risk has been
carefully selected, and that no business
haa been taken for the mere Baku of
making up a grand total. This is evidenced by the low death claims for the
past yoar. Theae only amounted to
sixty-seven, calling for the sum of
$112,044.09, including bonus additions.
The excellent management of this association is also evidenced by the fact
that the death claims for the post eight
years have been more than met bv the
income from rents and interest; thus,
while the death claims in eight years
have amounted to $636,471.46, the in
come from rents and interest lias netted $869,384.27— leaving a balance m
favor of the association of $32,912.70.
But we muBt ask the reader to peruse
the report for himself. It iB gratifying
to find a comparatively young Canadian life company taking bo high n position amongst-the great life associations of tho continent. Mr. T. It.
Pearson is general agent for British
Columbia'.

Recently the New Westminster corporation, through Mr. Chisholm, M.P.,
applied to the Indian department to
have ro-conveyed to the town certain
small reserves and an island in the
Fraser River, in close proximity to
New Westminstor, which was surrendered to the department of Indian affairs a few years ago. Thia week Mr,
Chisholm received a loiter on tho subject from Mr. Vnnkouglmot, the deputy superintendent-general, in which
he says; "I bog to inform you that
the question having been referred to
the acting Indian superintendent at
Victorin, that oflicer states that these
reserves were laid off by Mr. Commissioner Sproab on June 30th. 1879, at
the speoial request of the then city
council of New Westminster, as it was
proposed to make the Indians move
from corporate property within the
city, whore they had been squatting.
Mr. Sproat was accompanied by a
committee of the council who, after
examining tho ground and considering
the question fully, approved of the action of tho commissioner. These
reserves were intended for camping
grounds for Indians who were in search
of work, and in the case of smallpox or
other epidemic Poplar Island waB considered as a good place upon wliich to
establish a quarantine ground, Indians who had occasion to come from
all parts of the province ior trading
purposes, or to work during the season at the canneries and fisheries, were
allowed to camp oa both unoccupied
public and private properity, but matters in this respect are now changed
and they are ordered from all lots in
the eity limits, therefore it is most
necessary that there ahould be somo
reserve kept specially ns a camping
ground for them. Should small-pox
or other deadly epidemic at anytime
make its appearance, no better quarantine ground than Poplar Island could
bo found in the vicinity of New Westminster." In view of this letter Mr.
Chisholm has suggested that the matter bo allowed to lie in susponso until
Hon. Mr. Dewdney visita the province
after the session, when he can make a
personal inspection of the reierves and
the island.—Ottawa Correspondence of
the Colonist.

Canadian Kulei-prlse.
N. P. Leach, Esq., secretary of the
Dominion Cartridge Co., Limited, of
Montreal, has recently been staying in
tho city. The Dominion Cartridge Co.,
Limited, is one of the few manufacturing firms in the Dominion who are doing n successful foreign business.
Hitherto the bulk of metallic cartridges
have been mado in Counelicut, U. S.,
the proverbial nutmeg stale, whoro a
cheap low grade of powdor is used with
cast bullets instead of swaged ones.
The management of tho company soon
recognized the fact that even in tho
United States thoro was a market for
a reliublo factory-mado ammunition,
and last season they brought an expert from Enghnd, and in September
had their "test house" in operation
where all their cartridges went for inspection, nnd by tho first of November,
in the face of the 45 per cflqt duty,
they wore on tho Unitod States market. Their B-iIes in that country alone
up to the 10th of tho present month
amounted to over fifty tons--15,000,-
000 rounds. Ono lirm, tho B. Kitter-
edgo Arms Co., of Cincinnati, O., has
taken nearly thirty tons. Thy Dominion Co. aro also doing n larga trade in
England, Australia, Mexico, South
America, otc. The North wost mounted police nro using this ammunition
and the government inspectors report
strongly iu favor of the homo-made
inspected cartridges over the American make. Every cartridge that comes
in a case bearing tho inspector's stamp
is reliable.
