NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A good man in Arizona, who hail
been chosen superintendent of tho
Sunday school, waa pained to read
in a local paper tho lurid announcement that he had been ''chosen to
run a Sunday sheol."
Tlie Burlington Free Press ia
responsible for the follow, ng : Mra.
Smith—What do you suppose makes
the new minister so undersized ?
He looks as if ho hadn't got his
growth. Mrs. Btiscom—I dunno,
but I kind 0' suspect ho wns brought
up on the Shorter Catechism,
Funny item in funny paper; "If
a building catches lire in its upper
sto*iy it may burn down; if it takes
tire in the basement it may burn
up." Naturally, then, if fire starts
about half way between basement
and roof it wili burn sideways and
finally go out by   the   fire  escape.
Tho city editor of a paper many
miles from hero wrote an article
and headed it "Doom of the Bustle."
Then he went out on the street,
made observations of the dresses
worn by tho ladies out shopping,
rushed back to the office, and substituted a "B" for the "D" in the
first word in the title of his bustle
article.
The N. Y. Tribune^mves this as
a Parisian fable: A French Baker
{Boulanger) once came to Paris; and,
strutting pompously on the Boulevard, said to tho people: "Elect
Mo; I am a Great Man." The
People at once shouted, ''Hoorah
for Boulanger,'' and elected him by
a Big Majority. Then after a few
mouths the Peoplo said : "Talk is
Cheap, but where do we come in 1"
To which Boulanger replied "I
dunno," and disappeared in the
limbo of Obscurity.
Peoplo who have visited Niagara,
says an exchange, will bo interested
to know that in the early days of
the yoar a further mass of rock fell
from the precipice ef the Horse
Shoe Falls, Tho effect of this dis
placement on tho contour of the
fulls is said to be quite marked. For
tho past few years these falls have
been somewhat losing their curve,
owing to tho falling away of rock
in tlie centre. Tlio recent changes,
however, have restored tho falls to
their original horse-shoe shape.
Tho custom of ladies having the
privilege of offering marriage in leap
year is taken from an old act of the
Scottish Parliament, passed during
the thirteenth century, whereby it
was: "Ordouit that during ye
reign of her maist blessit Maiestie
Margaret, ilka m-.iiden, ladee of
baith high and low estuifc, shall hae
libertio to speak the man she likes.
Gif he refuses to tnk her to bee his
wyf, he sclutle be mulct in the sum
of one hundridty pundis, or le_s, as
his estait may bee, except and
alwnis, gif he can mak it appear
that he is bcthrotlut to anither
woman, then ho schal be freo."—Ex,
Snys Colonies and India: The
Gape Colony has asserted its superiority in the matter of official enterprise over the other British Colonies by the adoption of the penny
postage system. On January 1 tbe
new arrangement camo into force,
and tho effect of its working will
naturally bo wntehed with considerable interest, not alone at the Cape,
but in many othor Colonies where
efforts have already been made to
introduce this wise innovation in
postal matters. Great credit is due
to Mr. Aitchison, tlie Cape Postmaster-General, for his porsistent
efforts in favour of the penny post,
and it may be looked upon as a
certain scoro for the government
that they havo at last adopted that
gentleman's suggestion.
The shark pest is still unfortunately, rampant in (he Australian
colonics, An exchange relates the
following thrilling incidents in this
connection : At Iron Cove, near
Sydnoy, last month, u hoy who was
bathing with a companion was carried off by a monster tiger shark,
alilioughthc mutilated body was
subsequently recovered. But a still
more horrible case is just reported
from the Hawkesbury River, across
which the new railway bridge is
being erected. On December 13,
ns Mr. Hylund, of Ryland A Morse,
subcontractors for the erection of
thn superstructure of the bridge,
was walking along the top of one of
the spans, he missed his footing and
fell some 50 feet into the river
below. Even as he was falling a
huge shark wns observed immediately below, and the unfortunate
man had scarcely reached the water
when the monster seized him and
both disappeared under the water,
whioh at onco became tinged with
blood, A number of workmen and
others ou the bridge who witnessed
tho accident remained horror-
stricken and helpless. No sign of
tho body was found, and it was
thought that it was carried off, torn
to pieces, and devoured by a
"school" of sharks, us sueh abound
iu that part of  the   Hawkesbury.

Mil, YATKS' CAUL)..
London, Feb. 12.—There hns been
so many versions of the circumstances
under which the crown prince of Austria died, it is needless to add another,
but I believe tho truo story to be that
the emperor, empress and crown princesses wero exasperated beyond endurance at an intrigue which had been
discovered between him and one of
tho ladies of the court, They informed
him, after a most painful nnd stormy
interview, that his conduct was so infamous they had determined to appeal
to the pope for a decree and would
never forgive or see him again. The
crown princo went to Meyerling on
the fatal evening. After spending
some hours drinking and singing with
Count Hoyoo and the cabman Brahful,
he sent them awny making arrangements fur Count Hoyoo to shoot with
him in the morning. After they left
him the crown prince left the house
und went to the cottage of the gamekeeper, who has a remarkably pretty
wife. The gamo-keepor was out, but
returned before (he prince had left.
Tho latter, hearing the husband return,
escaped through a window. The husband Eeeiug a man leave hid wife's
rooms tired a shot at the prince, not
knowing who it was. Tho prince,
badly hit and bleeding, limped back to
the chute.ui. Maddened with pain,
drink and despair he locked himself in
his room and there shot himself. I
have the best authority for Raying this
is the hue account.
THE 1UT-7A-.T5T1C BISHOP.
Tho proceedings against the Bishop
of Lincoln which will begin nt L-.m-
beth on Tuesday are as unpopular nrd
little wished for hy tho church party
as by the most ardent ritualists. It
is a cause of dismay aud regret among
all churchmen that the archbishop has
not seen his way clear to stop the
proceedings. Tho archbishop, I he-
livo, justifies the course ho is adopting
on the grounds that he is representing
tho feelings of the church of England,
Tuesday's proceedings will bo almost
tiniil. The Bishop of Lincchi will appear in person and rend a statement
in support of the position he has taken
up, justifying it by opinions and facts
of wide aud varied kind. Having done
so and made a protest he will leave the
ense to be anmed by counsel. It is
possible tho Bishop of Lincoln will appear in his episcopnl vestments and
woaring a mitre.
THS H__UB APPARENT,
Iii spite of court mournings the
Prince of Wales managed to ho present
at one or two dinners last week, which
he probably found more amusing than
tho more ambitious entertainments he
was compelled to forego. On Thursday ho listened to Sir Henry Blake's
varied experiences nt Airs. A Jail's in
Crir-eii street nnd on Friday he dined
in lli.lgr.ive Squaro with Ruben Sas-
son.
MR. SMITH IIKTUI.XS it EC UP MUTED.
Mr. Smith is looking very well nnd
is in tho best of health nnd spirits.
Best und change in Ilia south havo
done their work nnd he returns ro*
invigorated nnd ready for his duties,
whioh promise to be very responsible
and arduous. His return will put an
end to the stories constantly put about
as to his intention of retiring from the
leadership of the houae of commons.
I can confidently declaro all rumors to
that effect, as well as those stated so
definitely last week as to the probability of Lord Hnrtingtun joinint* tho
cabinet, are absolutely unfounded.
Lord Hartington has no more intention of joining the government thun
the government has of letting Mr.
Smith retire.
. A BAYONET CHARGE.
Rome, Feb. 12.—There was another
demonstration by the unemployed
woikin;*me.n last night and the troops
were compelled to mako a bayuiiet

DmiLiN, Feb. 12.-\Vm. O'Brien
was taken to-day from thu jail of
Traleo to Kilnrney where he wns arraigned on a recent summuiis issued
ugainst hiin under the Crimes Act.
O'Brien looked haggard and pale and
asked fur an adjournment as he had
not time to consult counsel. The court
granted tho request and set a hearing
for Monday.
THE MAJOIl's EVIDENCE,
London, Feb. 12.-The Parnell
commission reassembled to-day. The
oourt room was inconveniently crowded. Major Lecaron took his place on
tho witness stand and the cross examination was continued by Sir Charles
Russell. Mr. Davitt was preient and
watched the proceedings closely. Sir
Charles dtrec.ed hi) questions to-day,
namely, to the career of the major as
a spy and paid agent of the British
government, nnd for tho motives and
inducement ho lud forgiving testimony
before the court. Lee iron was forced
to admit he had received £50 per
month for years from the British government and fnr more from tho Ca Indian authorities; thst ho was still under pay of both nud that n considerable sum was duo him. It wns expected that Mr. Davitt would also
cross-examine thu witness, but ho did
not do so. Tho questions put by Sir
Charles Russell were koen nnd searching and importntit results were obtained.     Lccnron admitted   O'Kelly
und Egan were expelled from a secret
organization because they joined in
the i'amdl movement; that lie mado
no report to tho British government of
his alleged interview with O'Kelly and
Parnell although both wore important;
and as he alleged Faruell told him to
nee Benny, Sullivan and Farrer ho
made no reply of his interview with
them to Parnell although he testifies ho
did see them. Tho witness alleged ns
the reason for not reporting in this
case, that ho hud given instructions
to him only. The witness was quite
cool nnd collected. He contradicted
nunc of the main points in his direct
examination, but tho admissions
elicited from him discredited Ins en-
tiro testimony. The most important
of tho conversation Parnell hud with
him was, he said, one which concerned
the Irish lender's views nsarevoluti-ni-
ist. lu this conversation Lecaron said
Parnell declared he did not see why an
insurrection should not bo successful.
Lecaron stated that from February
1868 to August 1870 he received £4,-
000, all of which lie used for public
purposes.
AN UNFAITHFUL (.BRYANT.
London, Feb. 11,—The admiralty
officials have for some time past suspected that u certuin attache of the
department, who had been in continuous service for 25 years, was in the
pay of outsiders, to whom ho divulged
the terms of contracts nnd other information. Failing to confirm their suspicions by several means which they
adopted to detect him, they attached
a secret electric wire to tho drawer
containing the contracts, a day or two
ago, and wero rownrded by oatohing
the tuspected man in the act of abstracting the documents. Tho culprit
was immediately dismissed from the
service, but as he is highly connected,
tho affair has been huBhed and he will
doubtless escape further punishment.

f mlg gttitiah Columbian
tntttmt Craning. Feb. 11. IMt.
Eastern papers call attention occasionally to the fact that British
Columbians do not take enough
trouble to make publio the incomputable features of their climate. It
is suggested that we might, with
great advantage, tako a leaf from
our American cousins in this respect. There can be no doubt that
there is much truth in the foregoing.
The fact is, that British Columbians
have got so used to , their good
things, climatic ahd otherwise, that
thev do not more than half appreciate their advantages. The natural
consequence is that little or no effort has been made to herald abroad,
among the dwellers in the torrid and
frigid east, and the blizzatd-swept
plains and oyclone areas of the interior of this continent, to say nothing of other lets favored lands,
the delightful and unvarying salu-
briousness of this "gem from tbe
west," where waft tbe balmy Pacific
breezes the year round. In spite of
our apathy, however, our climatic
and other resources are slowly but
surely making themselves known.
People from the east, north and
south, to whose ears has drifted a
slight echo of our fame, are making
inquiries to satisfy themselves if
these things are really so. Many
are coming, are preparing to come,
and many more will come, to see
and to enjoy for themselves. We
ate constantly receiving letters at
this office from places as diverse and
far apart as Florida, Manitoba,
Texas, Ontario, Nebraska, and
Washington Territory, asking for
sample copies of The Columbian
with the view of obtaining inforroa
tion about the country and the advantages it offers for settlement.
Not an issue of The Weekly Columbian at least (which we generally send to such applicants as well
as copies of the daily) but what contains more or less of the information
desired, and considerable results may
be expected from this manner of advertising the province. In faet it
possesses advantages over some
hastily-considered and poorly-execu*
ted advertising schemes; for a good
newspaper, besides the special matter it may contain, constitutes an
unerring and almost universally applied criterion as to the comparative
status of the community which supports the newspaper itself. The
weekly, monthly, and yearly meteorological reports, taken at this place
by Capt. Peele, and furnished for
publication in The Columbian, constitute very valuable, because accurate, information about our climate
and enable interesting comparisons
to be made between our climate and
that of various places abroad, and
these comparisons must in most
instances redound to our advantage.
British Columbia has been until
quite recently almost ■ terra incognita; but that stage in our experience
has just about reached the latt turn,
and toon, very toon, the "tread of
pioneers" will have merged into
the poetic and prophetic "roll" of
"a human sea."
The C'oloniet and India, a paper
published in  London,   Eng.,  that
mskes a specialty of colonial  matters, and on auch subjects generally
grasps the situation  pretty fairly,
has the following  remarks  in itt
issue of Jan. 23, on the Samoan em*
broglio, which will be found  worth
reading:   Fur the first time since
the advent of European  powers  in
the  Pacific,   there  hot been what
may be termed a rather serious war
between   whites  and  natives.   It
would probably be impossible to find
in  any  other quarter of the world,
so little of the  fighting propensity
amongst the native people as is to
be encountered among the various
scattered archipelagoes  which  dot
the  face  of the Pacific Ocean.   A
war in the islands waa wont to be
looked upon by the old castaways
and   beachcombers   who witnessed
them as very good fun  indeed, and
the last outbreak of hostilities in
Samoa—some, half-a-dozen years ago
—wot a fair sample of the kind ol
thing- which the Samoani dignified
by the title of war.   Thil  wu a
trouble between the two opposing
factions, and at that time It  wat
openly encouraged by the Germans,
who were not receiving as much in
the thapo of concessions from King
Malietoa a* they desired,   From the
king's opponent they hod "gnat expectation!" Indeed, and with their
aatiitance,  covertly rendared,  his
majesty's forces suffered defeat, having lost "one man wounded" during
a Mt tattle, while the victors did not
suffer a scratoh.   At the victorious
force* were rushing npon Apia and
threatening to piflaga tint place,
tht Germans _ound than.i_l.es suddenly compelled to assist tho king,
for tto purpose ol  restoring order
and preventing tto deaf ruction of
their property.   Thus tha war wat
ended; without leaving much etuie
fcr uM|lMtoa-^tomi_v*->*--wg
theso peaceful Mople.   Tto preaent
outbreak, which to* tatn timmenng
l_#io__«_i__«,"ia^br«r ■£*•*
,»h a trilllag matter.   ffl»-«o_linea
king who hat been placed by
man influence upon the throne in
succession to Malietoa has been having a most uneasy time of it since
his illegal acquisition of regal power
in the islands. The adherents of
Malietoa ate numerous and influential in Samoa, and in all probability
they have received a good deal of
assistance one way and another
from the white settlers and traders
in the archipelago who are not of
German nationality. Tamasese's
power has been rudely shattered,
and in all probability, if the German's were not behind him, his life
would not be worth a day's purchase.
PThe most surprising feature of the
little campaign, however, at far as it
has progressed, is tho heavy defeat
inflicted upon the Germans themselves by the followers of Mataafa,
wbo has been so warmly espousing
the cause of his liege lord the king
during the monarch's enforced absence from Samoa. To have 22
well-armed men killed, and a larger
number seriously wounded, by a
band of naked aboriginals, wbo can
be but imperfectly armed at the
best, is a serious thing, and it would
seem to speak eloquently for the de
termination of the Samoans to resist
any further interference from the
German traders iu native matters.
A comparison has often been drawn
between our own attitude towards
the native races -in the pacific with
whom we have had' dealings and the
manner in which tho German and
French—the former more particularly—deal with these people. Tho
fact is, however, that there is little
room for comparison. - It is, perhaps, true, as is sometime! said of
us, that we "run the Bible and trade
in the same boat;" but, if we do this,
we also put a very drastic restriction
on the sale of grog and firearms by
our traders among the natives. And
if we get any reasonable concessions
from the people in the shape of
land, labor, or trading privileges,
the British authoritiet take particular care that a quid pro quo is given
them, in one form or another. This
certainly cannot be said of the Germans, as far at their policy has been
exhibited in the case of Samoa.
English missionaries have done tho
bulk of the pioneering work in that
oountry, and it would, indeed, be
extremely hard to find any instance
in which the German connection has
been productive of any benefit to
the people. There is that discreditable inclination on the part of the
German authorities in Samoa to
treat the natives as " common niggers," and very little consideration
has ever been shown, either for their
feeling! or their interests. This the
Samoans feel, and this it is which is
the cause of all the trouble. Malietoa tried, loyally, after begging us
over and over again to help him, to
get at least some small measure of
justice for his people, and he wus
promptly transported from the country in a German man-of-war. It
appears, now, however, that our
Teutonic friends in Samoa may possibly have to discuss the position of
affairs with white people, who nre
not to be hoodwinked, and they may
yet find it convenient to clear out of
Samoa, as they have, before now,.
had to clear out of other places in
the Pacific.

THE  PUG-NOSED GIRL
Triciih-iii   J*i*(iti»iiiic..p.   Her   a    Thing   ..f
Beauty uud u Joy Forever.
I do remember mc, In theso faint and
weary days, of tho youth of my spirit, When
I wandered fancy free through such works
na tlioao of tho mortal Junius Henri
Browne, writes Triuotrin in Pack, And I
do, moreover, remember me of a remark of
his which went thus: "Her nose was
divine inasmuch as it pointed toward
Heaven." Whoreatlwas wont to laugh,
knowing that thereby did Browne dignify a
pug-nosed girl with large gray eyes and a
sunburst of ambrosial curls tbat filled tho
earth with whito horses,
Now that the sand-paper of adversity has
scrapec. tho gloaB off ray youth, and exposed beneath tbo varnish somo of tho cheapness of tho natural material, I laugh not at
tlio pug-nosed girl. I smile at her. For,
verily, I do conceive that she is a thing of
bcauly nnd a joy forever.
But, alas I tho philosophers are not with
mc. Authorities on personal beauty, from
Wini;---.lmann to Henry T. Finck, say thai)
a nose should bo straight. Brother Flnclt
saya that tlio Greek artists, who mado
st I'ttight noses, took their idea of tho divino
noso from tho contours of childhood. Thoir
gods and goddesses possessed no cavity at
tho rooL of tho nose, und this, quoth Finch,
ischarnetoi-iaticof youth. "Later In life,"
hooontlnuoa, "thoso cavities (brain cavities) bulge forward and produce tho hollow,
which is, therefore, an indication of superior
cranial development and higher intellectual
powers. Honco, as Prof. Kollmann sug-
gesta, the object of tbe Greek artists in
making tho nose of their deities form a
straight line with the forehead was probably to givo them the stamp of eternal
youth."
Uut why should a straight line bo beautiful lu tho midst of the gracious contours of
tho human face? Tho curvilinear prospect
is thnt which wholly inspires the artistic
mind. Does not oven o small boy, even one
who has but ono eye, and sees but one-half
tho glory of nature, rejoice moro in the
curves of a dog's tall, a velocipede, a he-
goat, u minco pio, a loot-ball, a marble, a
tiivcr quarter, or what not, than in tho
square of tho bypothonuse or the instructor's rulorl
And what Ib a small boy, with unkept
hnlr and freckled cheeks, with sovon warts
upon his hands and tho essence of joy in
hii heart, but the incarnate spirit ot eternal
ycuili, not yet janglod out of tunoby tho
shadow of uge and tho inevitable wrestling
for the wherewithal? ■ Does ho blto his lips
if tlio world grows old and kingdoms full, if
commerce vanishes into "trackless, bluo
immousity, "nnd tho tariff swolls liko the
shadow of doom, if the school keeps or not?
Those things show that thero aro both
beauty aud eternal lovo in curves, uud
an euo that the Greek artists did uot woll
when they mado foreheads and noses of
their gods run into one another in a straight
lino.
Better is tho mild and gentle hollow at tho
root of tho nose, and better still tbo wido
and doop excavation on tho upper surface
ol' .In- organ of smell, which gives it thu us-
pirntion of divinity, according to the im-
mortul Urowno.
Moreover, if the girl with a straight nose
obeys tho time-worn injunction and follows
it, whither will sho tondi Surely around
and around tho earth on a parallel of latitude, a meridian of longitude, or, what is
moi-e difficult of navigation, a rhumb-line.
But if the girl with tho pug uoso follows it,
Bin; goes 03 straight to Heaven as smoko ou
a windless day.
' It may bo that my moro conventional
friends und fellow-citizens will laugh at mo
for loving a vorsatilo nsso, *y"nt I havo thus
much merit; I do not lovo tho prehensile
nose of the tribes that refused to bo lost.
These noses aro tho antipodes of the innocent aud heavenward pug, which is door to
mine eyes.
And lastly, brother—lot mo whisper this
softly, with un accoinpunimcnt of low music
—tho pug noso interferes not with, the divine institution of osculation. It is beneficently turned upward out of the way, and
lcavos the lips freo aud undefended, so tbat

Two Good* Stories Related by Intelligent
Aft-lean Bailunen.
Whilo Mr. Audorson wu leisurely trav*
cling through South Africa in a wagon
drawn by Bixtceu oxen, ho hoard from tho
bushman many stories of their remarkoblo
escapes from lions, soys o writer in Golden
Dii'j-,. Ono bushman, having beon BO-zcd by
Iho arm by a lion, had tho presence of mind
to use his free arm to tako up a handful of
sand and throw it in tho lion's eyes. The
beast, roaring with pain, and bliuded, lot
go tho man, who ran oway boforo tho lion
could recover his sight. Mr. Anderson saw
tho man, and tho marks of the lion's tcotlt
on his arm.
That lion was not as cool as a sergeant in
tho United States army, who was stationed
at ouo of tho forts ou tho Western pln-ns,
A soldier, having dosorted.was captured hy
tho sergeant fn a mining camp fifty miles
from tho fort.
Whilo returning thoy woro passing a sa-
loon, and tho prisoner begged tbe privilege
Of going in and getting a drink Tlio sergeant consented, and tbey went in together
and stood before the bar, on which was a
pepper-box filled with cayenne pepper. Tho
soldier took tho box up, unscrewed tho perforated lid, threw a handful of the rod pep-
pet Into the sergeant's oyes and started fur
tho door. Tho blinded man, though Buffering Intensely, retained his self-possession,
Ho drew his revolver, fired in the direction
of tho retreating footsteps and shot tho de.
sorter through tho heart.
A bushman, on being seized by a lion.who
grasped tho man's left arm with his teeth,
used his freo arm to take hold of ono of tliu
beast's hlud logs. This ho squeezed und
pinched so hard that tho lion gavo a roar
aud sprung away.
Economy at tho Furnace Door.
The beat engineer In Christendom, says
Practical Electricity, can not produco the
best results with his plunt when ho has to
depend on an unskilled fireman, or upon
himself, acting also as tlreman. It is a
common notion that any body oan shovel
coal into a furnace, and that this constitutes all that a fireman needs to do. A
great many mill agent.*, treasurers, to say
nothing of boards of directors, cherish this
Idea, without realising how serious ..it is.
Wo assert that no man ought to bo place.(
in charge of a coi.1 pllo who can not toll' op
froximatoly how much can bo deduced
rom it, because It represents a certain
number of foot-pounds of work, and has,
therefore, a definite ovaporatlvo value. To
speak plain, tho coal pile means just so
many dollars worth of work. The duty of
expending this money, this raw material,
should bo Intrusted to a, well-exponouced
and well-paid fireman. Every engineer has
his own speclflo sphere of work, and only
false economy demands thut ho should
movo out of it. Engineers uro nol.ln.i-
omlilscont nor omnipresent, but, if thoy
know tholr business, and are not ufruld to
toll tho truth, thoy will not hesitate ..to
recognize and condemn tho wastefulness of
tho policy of hiring either a cheap fireman
or no fireman at all.

Although brook trout aro out of season tho Indians continue fo bring them

to frighten othors from the unlawful

The veiy intorostingcoremouy of dedicating the new Oddfellow's lodge took

Annexationists prate to thu working
elarses that they wuuld have greater
freedom under the stats and stripCB,
would benefit by the more apparent

and administered with more justice to
the working-man than under the British flag. But these statements are
viewed with distrust when we read
that a popular subscription is beiug
raised to award a murderous policeman. Thomas K. Snider, who shot
nud killed a striker, McGowan, on
Thursday laat in the street car trouble

was intimidated or dragged from the

vaunting emboldenuient of this policeman by this means is wrong, radically

Tbo mover did not think that the
finance minister would object to furnishing the information desired, as it
would be very interesting.
The finance minister did not think
it desirable to publish the names of
those lined.
Tho provincial secretary said that
the publishing of these names was m
in reality inflicting a Becond penalty
for the offences committed. It was a
thing never done before and would be
by some considered a greater punishment than the punishment already inflicted.
After considerable discussion, tlio
resolution was carried without objection on mover agreeing that tho information asked for should not be published.
Mr. Humphreys asked Ihnt an order
of thu house bo granted for thu return
of all correspondence relating to the alluded charge ot theft preferred against
Waller Bentley, acting government
agent at Oomox.
The attorney-general said that tho
caso was still pending and it would
therefore, bo unwise to produce lhe correspondence.
The provincial secretary t-aid there
was no correspondence to produce. It
wus a most extraordinary thing fur the
house to bo naked to hike ru.ti.fri iu n
matter still pending before n justice of
tho peace.
The attorney-genera! hoped that lhe
mover would uot only withdraw the
resolution but tako steps to havo it
erased from the journals of tho house.
It looked as if the mover was being
made it tool of Somo one who wished to
satisfy p»rsonnl malice. The house
ahould not be asked to lend assistance
in gratifying enmity ugsinBt some real
or imaginary enemy.
Mr. Jiuuphreys agreed, with the
consent of the house, to withdraw his
resolution, which was done.
Mr. Humphreys moved that a select
