N0TE8 AND COMMENTS.
"When a man dies suddenly,
without having been attended by a
doctor," says a popular guide to the
law, "tho coroner has to be called in
ant) an. inquest held to ascertain the
cause of death. But," adds the
writer, "when he dies after having
been attended by a doctor, then
everybody knows why he died, and
an inquest is not necessary."
The astronomers who peroh on
tho top of Nonnt Winnemucoa, Nev.,
tomorrow, to observe the total
eclipse of tho sun, will be in the centre of the path of totality, 6,000
feet above sea level, und in an atmos-
phero almost totally destitute of
humidity. They'll have tho best
place to be found in tho United
States, nnd great results are expected.
Somo cheerful liar tells this story
about a wood-chopper in Nevada :—
He discovered a leak in one of the
mains of the water company, where
a jet was forced out under enormous
pressure. After experimenting he
found that tho stream would out
wood equal to a line saw, to ho Bet
to work and now makes handsome
brackets of ohoico woods, whioh
find a ready sale.
The Haytien government has, it
appears, a steel ram, Toussairit
l'Ouverture, built in England, which
is more than n matoh for the four
old American wooden steamers lent
to look into tho seizure affair. The
Haytien vessol is not only more
poworful than all these old tubs put
together, but Bho has bigger guns
and iB about twice as fast as tbe
best of theirs. It is to be trusted
that tbe Haytiens will not be so intoxicated with their superior force
as to attempt to thrash Undo 8am.
A good story comes from Portland,
Maine, about a man who put too
much fuith in dreams. His wife
lost u fur collar and, the most careful search being made for tho article
without success, she came to the
conclusion that it had boen stolen.
Lust week her husband dreamed
three nights in succession that the
collar was secreted under a stump
near the barn, and he went to investigate. He thrust his hand into a
cavity beneath the stump, and, sure
enough, felt a furry substance, which
he pulled out. The man then went
home and changed his clothes, while
tli*. skunk cwapul. jta.
A few years ago two Australian
Colonies fought out the question of
Protection v. Free Trade. In Vic-
toriaProtectionwon. In Now South
Wales Free Trade won, The fruits
of the two policies are now being
mado manifest. Protectionist Victoria has increased hei population
by 62 per cout, in twenty years; in
tho same time Freo Trade New
South Wales has increased 139 per
oent. The average wages of a workman in Victoria is 983, in New
Soutli Wales $100, with cheaper
living. Ths workingmen are leaving
the protectionist colony and going
to the Free Trade colony.
"I found ' Old Hutch' in a downtown restaurant one night last fall,"
said a board of trado man to n congenial crowd. "He was in a sociable mood, and I asked him to give
me the secret of his success, as he
certainly must have found the true
secret of money-muking. He sited
ine up for a minute and said if I
wai in earnest he would like to tell
tell me the story of his life. Well,
■ir, he began from the time he wai
born and never skipped a tingle
thing regarding his life. He ate
three different times while he was
regaling me with his story. He
began talking about ten o'clock and
kept at it until three the next morning. Then I quit him, at he waa
only thirteen years old and hadn't
made a cent."—Ex.
lieplying to the question "Should
women propose marriage 1" the Rov.
De Witt Talmage answered : "Why,
you aro centuries too late in asking
that question. Women always have
proposed, and always will propose.
Words are weak things compared
with womanly affability and loveliness. The molt tplendid thing on
earth is a good woman, and when,
with all her ottractivoncu, she
makes np hor mind that it would be
woll for her to be the wife of some
good man, and that it would be
equally well for him, she captures
him as easily as a regiment one
corporal. It does not make any
difference whether her tongue proposes or not, hor eyes propose, her
smile proposes, her mode of entering a room proposes. Until a man
gets from a woman a proposition of
that style ho had better not make
n proposition of his own unless he
wanti to be made to feel ridiculous
tlie rest of hit life-time."

seems that Olson insulted Rust's sister

apology, which was refused. On Christmas eve the men met iu tho Brunswick saloon. Olscn went behind the
bar, got two revolvers, laid them on the
counter and told Ruat to tako one of
them and go with him and they would
settle the dfficulty. A quarrel ensued

quick for him, however; he drew his
own pistol end shot Olson twice, killing him almoBt instantly. Olson was
in bad repute and public sympathy is
with Rust.

The condemned Chinaman arose early
this morning and uto a hearty breakfast, He was removed to a cell near
the gallows about 0 o'clock and mado
a request to be left alone a few minutes,
which was denied. He seemed to mil.
ize this morning that he would havo to

anxiohr whatever. He refused to embrace
tho Christian religion, and would have
nothing to say to the priest Mho called
upon him.
IRVING's MACBETH.
London, Dec. 29.—Henry Irving's new
version of Macbeth was prcsente:l at the
Lyceum Theatre to-night in the presence
of a most brilliant and critical audience.
Every critic of note in London was present. Among the occupants of tlie boxes
were Mr. and Mrs. Phelps, Oscar Wilde,
Sir Frederick Leighton and many other
notables. The first scene of the play
was gloomy, Irving's costume was
picturesque but not particularly startling,
in view of his many departures from the
orthodox representation. Miss Terry
was interesting but not equal to her best
efforts. In the scone where Lady Macbeth reveals tho murder and displays the
dagger, sho was especially weak. The
gallery gods applauded the play as a
whole, but the critics were not over
enthusiastic in their comments on tho
representation,
, CAUGHT AT LAST,
Liverpool, Dec. 29.—Tho police wero
anxiously watching to-day for the arrival of tho steamer Lord Gough from

teachings obscuring the true teachings
of right. Secularism, nihilism and
communism, it says are also the oot-
come of this addition to material
things.
AFFAIRS IN SOUDAN.
London, Dec 20.—Ths friends of
Henry M. Stanley, including a number of African experts, sfter thoroughly sifting all the recent news from
Saukim and Zanzibar have oome to
tho conclusion that the African ex-
Klorer has not been caught by the
lahdi. Tbo belief that Stanley mide -
a circuit through the Bahr El Ohaael
district to reach Emin Pasha at Widens, he sent a messenger to Emin
Pasha at Wadelia and this measengsr
was captured at Lado. The Maniji
thus obtained possession of the letter
from the Khedive to Emin Piaha fronT"*-
this messenger and the itory of tha
capture of Emin Pasha and Stanley il
based upon the documents found In
hi. possession. Hence there is nothing
In the recent story of Oaman Diana to
prove the capture of either Stanley or
Emin Pasha, and the former', friends
expect shortly to hear good news of
him. Sir Francis D» Winton in su
interview to day said that ths itste-
raont of Osmnn Dignn thst ths Mahdi's
troops have taken Cado recall! the extensive spread of the religious or fanatical movement which hu expelled the
Egyptians and their European friends
in the Soudan. The vast diltanos
from Cairo to Khartoum can, sines a
Nile expedition, be to lome extent realized by every one, But Khartoum
ii only half way from Cairo to Lsdo.
Tho Mahdi's rule, in short, extends
ovorsn area measuring 1600 miles
from north to south end shout ths
same distance from east to west. Th*
Arabs of the Zanzibar cout and of ths
southorn lake region, though there is .
no evidence to connect them with the
Egyptians in the Soudan, aeem to
represent a phenomenally close resemblance to thoao whioh have been observed in the Nile district. A period
of European exploration and of sapor- •
ficial organisation undn the direction
of a European or of a mon or less
civilized Mahomedan, hu ended In sn
outburst of uvage f.n>tioi.ni snd lis
expulsion of all ths civilising snd
Christian element! PThe African
world hu felt the beginning of tht
constraining grip of oiTdisation, snd
relents with fierce reaction ths intrusion of foreign noes. Thssflbrtof
the moment is to stake a clean iwesp
of whatever had been i*ioomplii*n*d by .
Europe, but it is only for the moment***'*".*'
Europe hu taken hold of Africa, sad <

•/vv wroii
A brief retrospect of the year that
has now but a fow hours to live will
not bo out of plaoe.    An   obituary,
it is truo, is generally a posthumous
affair, but it is safe to anticipate in
the case of tho dying yoar,  ns   tho
doctors all agn.'o in " giving it up."
Father  Time  has   beon   using his
scythe to suoh good effect that "Old
1888"hasbeen mortally   wounded
and   is. now  quietly breathing his
hut.   The year haa been   a quietly
eventful one.   No terrible wars have
convulsed the nations, although tho
war oloud hu hovered dark ovor
Europe and ominous m titterings lmve
been heard from time to time that
threatened to merge nnd swell  into
all the horrid din of a general and
devastating  European   war.   England,   Germany,    France,   Russia,
Austria, Italy, and Turkey have
been considered as on the verge  of
the vortex almost any time  during
the year.   The Czar, tho young Emperor William and Boulanger have
been looked upon, whether justly or
not, as the "bad men" who were just
itching to Blip the  collars  off the
"dogs of war" and "sic"  them  at
each other's throats.   Perhaps,  tho
newsgatherers havo  sacrificed, to
some extent, veracity at the  shrine
of sensationalism, for the   war has
not yet burst, and there is   a   perceptible lull at  present.   Standing
armies and navies,   however, are
being strengthened,  and in these
precautions, perhaps, aro  the  best
guarantees for peace; although   the
crash, when it docs come, will be all
the more terrililo and far  reaching.
The British Lion, fondly  imagined
by some to be falling into decay, has
been   exercising    his     inimitable
"colonizing" proclivities during the
year.    Burnish hns   fallen   to  his
arras,   and   a  huge slice of eastern
Africa—with 1700 miles of seaboard
and 70,000,000 of industrious and
prosperous    inhabitants — to    his
finesse.   At homo the "Irish question" is still an   unsolved   problem,
the Parnell commission attracts, and
will continue to attract, considerable
attention,  but the  doings of the
myiteridus and bloody Whitechapel
maniac have, perhaps, thrilled the
public mind more than other occurrences of the year, and the  end  is
not yet.   Abroad,   n   "glorious victory"   was  gained  at Suakim the
other doy,  and tho  brave  men,
Henry M. Stanley and Emin Bey,
whose  horoscope   hns   perceptibly
brightened lately, have attracted all
eyes and   sympathies   toward  the
Park  Continent  for  more than a
year now,   In Germany,   two  emperors — Imperial   Wilhelm    and
Frederick  tho   Good—have   boen
gathered to their fathers, within less
than four months of each other, and
young William II  reigns  in their
stead.   France has  been agitated
with Boulangism, the Panama canal
(which  at present writing appears
to have run upon irretrievable  disaster), and petty  native wars.   In
Italy, the pope has been urging his
claims    to    re-endowment    with
tho    temporal      power,      which
movement,    howover,    is     quite
properly regarded in the light of
an anachronism.   Spain   has   been
troubled, as  usual,   with  internal
dissensions, but, on the whole,   has
been comparatively quiet. The great
slave trade in   Africa,   carried   on
principally by the Arabs,   has   attracted   tho attention and aroused
(he indignation of all freedom-loving
natio'n*. who have lately  combined
to put it down.   The pope and Oar-
dinalX-a va'gerio have done good service on behalf of the oppressed  of
Africa by calling attention to   their
wrongs and sufferings and invoking
the aid of Christendom.   In South
Anierim, Brazil has abolished slavery,   and   Chili   has  arranged  to
abolish Peru.   Mexico has   had  a
presidential oleotion in addition  to
her usual troubles, and gives prom-
iseof developing into u'fine country.
This has been presidential yoar  in
thelPnted States—with   all   that
thnt  implies.   Tariff  reform   has
heen  declared  against, and Glove-
land nnd the Democrats, after their
short taste of tlio sweets  of office,
must step down and out, and Harrison of  Indiana,   the   soldier  and
"man     with     the      pedigree,"
comei in on the Republican   wave.
The welt meant efforts of the joint
fishery commission were frustrated
early in the year by the Republican
senate, and Cleveland's retaliation
message, as an offset, caused a violent ripple on the political and commercial tide all over the continent,
A feature of the last few  months
has been the bumptious annexation
overtures of the United States with
respeot to  Canada.   Yellow jaok
has stalked abroad in some  of the
southern slates and slsin its victims.
The year, generally, has been a good
one agrioultnrally throughout tho
United States, p The Dominion of
Canada hss kept on the even tenor
of its way, smiling confidently  at
Yankee election bombast and bluster, rebuking quietly but sternly all
" " ittingdown"
be stalking-
Sanexation, and progressing
ie  towards

sarily results. The federal and
provincial powers have clashed more
than once during the year, and tho
victory in the more important affairs has been with the latter, to
the publio advantage. It must bo
remembered that the confederation
is yet something of an experiment,
and the varied experiences will workout a more perfect knowledge for the
future. In spite of a partial drought
in Ontario, the year has been a remarkably good one, agriculturally
throughout the Dominion as a whole.
Manitoba has had a political revolution during tho year. Norquuy and
the Conservatives have heen givon
the grand bounce, nnd Greenway
and tho Reformers have Kken their
places, although the battle wns
fought moro on provincial than political lines. The prolonged railway
fight of the "prairie province" and
the recent victory over the O.P.R.
arc memorable events of the yonr.
In our own provinco we have had
what threatened to bo an Indian
war, by way of variety; an expedition was sent to the Skeena with
commendable despatch, but happily
thero was littlo or no bloodshed
The year has beon ono of progress,
and a good one, agriculturally
throughout tho provinco. The
" rod letter " ovents affecting the
royal city have been improvements
at tho river mouth, tbo reopening, under the most promising
circumstances, of tho river to seagoing vessels, and the successful
inauguration of the Westminster
Southern Railway scheme, The
importance of these events, as bearing upon the future of tho royal
city, it would bo almost impossible
to over-estimate, and much progress
has boen made in many respects
otherwise in both oity and district.
Tho future is literally pregnant
with good things for us and an advancement that we havo scarce yet
dreamed of—if we but appreciate
and prove oqual to to tho occasion.
Last, nnd least, if you will, The
Columbian has changed hands and
enlarged during the year, and now
wishes its numerous nnd constantly
increasing number of readers "A
vory happy and prosperous New
Year."	
No less a paper than the Scientific
American allows itself to make fun
of poor Keely, of motor fame, in tho
following undignified but distinctly
humorous style: The Philadelphia
court which thought it could keep
Mr. Keely in confinement lias seen
its error. As tbo Tribune lias already remarked, Mr. Keely is out of
jail and has returned to his motor.
Somo of tho earlier of the stockholders aro not yet out of tho poor-
house—but this is neitiicr hero nor
there. The short and simple annals
of Mr. Keely's motor aro soon told.
Some twenty years ago, more or less,
Mr. Keely built his motor. Thero
are a number of pipes, wheels, pulleys, rods, belts, levers, cocks, cams,
and cogs visible, beside", it is darkly
hinted, a vastly greater number of
tho samo sort of thing nnder the
floor nnd back of the partition. In
front of tho motor is Mr. Keely's
oflice, in which there is a large slot
Tlio stockholders drop their money
in the slot, and Mr. Keely looks out
and watches them walk away.
Naturally Mr. Keely is sometimes
called upon to explain the workings
of bis motor by some doubting stockholder. On such occasions he is all
smiles, and, conducting the victim
into tho presence of the machine,
he says: "You see, my friend, the
way we operate the motor is this:
Taking hold of this lever we pull it
toward us. This causes the small
flip-flap you see there to be withdrawn, allowing tbo flibbor snntcher
to fall into its place on the ramrod.
As soon as this happens, it acts directly on the hatchway ond tho
slam-bang, causing them to mako a
half-revolution and start tho got-up-
and-get motion of tho Hunker-Hopper,
which in turn communicates its
energy to tho button hook and the
wapperchock. After theso things
have run for about five minutes thoy
cause tho jig-jag valve to turn, and
the asthmatic gas flows through the
pipe to the cylinder and gives the
wiggle motion to tho gilder fluke.
That's the point we nre striving after—the wiggle motion of the gilder
fluke. Why, my dear sir, without
the wiggle-motion of the gilder-fluke
you wouldn't think of putting your
money into the motor. But, with
it, sir, wo are—eh, another share 1
All right, come into tho office and
I'll have it made out for yob insido
of a minute." Professor Keely has
been muoh more successful in the
mechanical manipulation of the
stockholders' money than in the
management of his motor. Taking
hold of tho middle of a bill, of any
denomination, with tho thumb nnd
forefinger of eaoh hand, he holds the
end of the bill toward his person.
By a dexterous movement of the
fingers he causes the bill to fold
across the center. Repeating the
procesi, he has it reduced to the
proper compass for wadding into
his pocket book, whioh is tho next
movement. This most ingenious
gentleman, Don Keely, then places
the purse in hia right hand trousers
pooket and smiles quietly. The
mechanical action is perfect, and
leaves nothing to be desired. Mr.
Keely's mental endowments seem to
run in particular lines. He appears
to have no mechanical ingenuity, his
strong point being his ability as a
collector. He has one of the largest
and best arranged collections of
other people's money to be found in
the United States. Having, a
number of years ago, during a fit of
temporary insanity, oonstructed a
machine whioh, :f any power on
earth could start it, would explode
and pierce the startled dome of
heaven with flying fragments of cog
wheels and cranks, he now sits down
calmly and allows this same mechanical nightmare to make his living for
him,   This is genius. The man who

con era to a company, stock in which
is placed among tho holder's liabilities when he fails, and then continues to sell this stock every day,
is doing something that ordinary
men of talent cannot do. lie has
risen above them. This is Keoly.
He toils not, neither does lie spin;
but he has got a hysterical collection
of crooked pipes aud lop-sided wheels
tied up in his back room that extract the reluctant dollar from the
pocket of avarice without fail.

SOME    SUGGESTIONS    FOR' THE
Tt* THANKSGIVING  TABLE. '
' Howslrt. WWIsnA-irMse. H.it*Alc
-A Familiar Ositom In ths J"ndleott
laamlly-Wbs. Th. Wile ot tho Post.
MMt.r-O.narr.1 WIU Bave for Dinner,
(OwrlcU 18SJ)
Mrs. Secretary Whitney Is one ot the
most charming women In Washington.
The lntervHwer fees little trouble In approaching ber, but a. villi find It hard to
get sway. I talked with pier yesterdsy
about her Thanksgiving srrsngementa.
" Well.* .he uid, "we generally keep the
day with Mr. Whitney'stwoslsterslnNew
York.dtvidlng the Christmas andThanks-
giving holidays between ns. Sometimes
we go to the bomeof theSecretary's moth-
er.at Brookllne.near Boston. Onr Thanksgiving dinner Is always served at two
o'clock, because on thst day wo hays the
children with ns, snd their nnrestrlcted
•■j^sntorment requires more time fordlges-
***tlon than nsusl. We also try to have the
old-fashioned edibles served very much Is
tbe usual way. OurThsnksglvlngdlnner
will probably consist, flrat, ot oyatersoup,
_j|hlch will be followed by Sah. Then the
greet tnrkey with cranberry sauce and
vegetables. Ws slwsys bring the pies on
stones. I thlnktney make the table very
attractive, with their crisp unbroken
surfaces covered with white sugar. I
should consider tbe dlnnsr Incomplete
without cranberry tarts, with strips ot
dough delicately browned across the top.
I bars adopted the Ideas ot my kiubahd's
mother on the pie question, and we hare
no end ol plea; mince pie, pumpkin pie,
apple pie and all the old-fashioned varieties. My mother-in-law makes a kind that
I never eee elsewhere. A Charlotte pudding affair, tbe nameot which I do not remember, although It has one. It la made
of grated apples and whipped cream. At
my own home In Ohio, It was bur custom
to serve a small pig, roasted whole, which
stood In the middle of the table, with t
■ lemon in it. mouth. Our boy is always
happy when he ts at Grandma Whitney's,
because she lets him have unlimited
mince pie. He has It for breakfast and
dinner and a piece for lunch. He declares
that bla Grandma's pies never make him
sick."
"My Thanksgiving dinner I like to be
as much as possible the product of our
own farm," said Mrs. Secretary Fair-
child. "There Is s sentiment connected
with this particular festival that makes It
seem more pleasant still to give thanks
for the sheaves that have been ripening
'through the year, especially for us, audit
le not all sentiment either; for after all
there Is no poultry like our own, no ham
so sweet as that killed on onr own farm,
and nothing Is In the world so delicious as
tbe mushroom, gathered ln our own
pasture..
"I would serve my dinner just like any
other," ehe continued, "bnt everything
should bo homelike."
Mrs. Endlcottls a stately Massachusetts
matron, and a real representative woman.
" I believe In the old, New England
Thanksgiving,"said she, "and since It
has become a national holiday much ot
Its show Is lost, I think. I can remember the scene at my father's, ln Salem,
wbeu his carrlrgo house was packed with
turkey's Joints and other edibles for this
purpoie, and the yard wonld be Sued
with hi. poorer neighbors, who stood In
front of the wldo doublo door, across,
which a bar had been placed, aud received tbe gifts as fast as two mon oould
pass them ont. There wero turkeys
enough only for bis special protegee, but
everybody could have a joint and tbo
vegetables to go with It,
Our own dinner we have always taken
at the old homestead; if wo oould not go
ourselves ws always sent the children,'
until tble year.
Onr family has alwaye gathered there,
from the oldest down to the wee babe in
arms, and around the table, eet lu old-
fashioned style and profusion, with roast
tnrkey, chlckeupte, hem,and all kinds
of fruit pies, mloce pie. snd puddings, we
have renewed tho family ties on each
Thanksgiving Day. After the tablo la
cleared, there Is one part of the ceremony
weueveromlt. The youngest toddler lu

corns Into ths famllyslnce the laat Thank-
giving festival, ta placed on hie feet on the
tablo, while his mother stands at the op-
posits end, snd the rut of the family
gstbsr at the sides, to guard his sate
Journey from one end of the table to the
other; every time he totters there are
many ready hand, extended to guard his
ancertslnetepetlll he arrives triumphantly at the otber end.
"No,I do not know thst there Is m
significance In tbl*. I presume somo
prond mother of our family in primitive
times may have done this, and the ex
pie hu .Ince been followed,"
"Ths eutiom lo pretty enough (or *
poem;" said I, "snd Jhsve notlssd ono
thing to-day that please, me vastly. In
every house almost, that I have called,
there le a ladles' writing desk In ths parlor; naturally to one of my guild thiols
very gratifying, snd I ess yen hsvs two."
"J»?> estd shswltha sigh, "one Is
mine, snd tbls emsller one at my elbow Is
mydaughter'e. We have made good nee of
them, too. but ehe hss.gons snd left
hers "-hers the gentle eyee filled with
tears. " Yes.lt le hard to have an ocean
between ns," she continued In s broken
voice, In answer toaremark to thst effect,
"but one should never stead between
one's child ud happiness. Thst la his
likeness on the mantle," Indicating a
hsndsorne gentleman with frank looking
eyes and seeusitlvs mouth. "Icsnbear

ae yet I presume I hsvs not fully realised

ABOUT PROMINENT PEOPLE,
BewsDslu Proposes- to Mr* -decks*'«
Slater-Bow BmwcU P. Smith Booght^,
the Lincoln Blstory nnd ths Amount
Paid Por It.
Mrs. Mockay, of California, Paris and
London, is said to be very intimate of late
with Isabella, ex-Queen of Spain. Agood
story of tbe Mockay family hns not until
now been told tn print Mrs. Mscksy'a
mother nud; olster lived with her somo
years ego In Paris; and from the immense
wealth of the head of the family it was
supposed that the sister would come ln
for a very considerable dot; and it was
true that Mackay had either invested for
ber or presented her with a few hundred
thousand dollars, more or less, a more
bagatelle ln .the eyes of the. master of
millions, hilt very appetising to 'i a
hungry Frenchman of the old regime. One
day at the Legation ot the United States
a Dowager Duchess of the oldest French
stock asked to see the American Minister,
and was ushered Into His Excellency's
private office. Her Grace then explained
that she hail come In behalf of her son,
the young duke, to propose for the hand
ot Mn. Mackay's Bitter. She hsd not the
honor to know Mn, Mackay nor her mother, and of coune not the young lady, so
she thought the proper way was to come
direct to ths minuter. Hie Exeelli
promised to submit her proposal., -
he did ths tame isy to Mscksy's;
Inlaw, But theoldOsllfornlan ',.,	
so mnohelated at the prospect of the
alliance as doubtless ths Duchess had anticipated; she asked tbe Miniiter to explain to the noble parti that herdaughter
was very poor, saving so share of tho
Mackay fortune, and wss Only ln Europe
to be educated for a governess; as she expected to earn her own living, The Minister communicated hie menage to the
Duchess, who woe disappointed but lu no
way embarrassed. She said sho had been
misinformed,and that of coune under the
circumstances her offer would not stand.
It wu a purely business srrugemtnt In
her eyee.
The young lady afterwards married sh
Italian prince, but the preliminaries were
not settled by any envoy or ducal or
princely mother-in-law. Ths American
girl acted In her own behalf.
The Lincoln Blstory now sppearlng ln
the Century Magazine costs Mr. Roswell
Smith, the proprietor of thst periodical,
150,000. The way ln which he camotopay
this extraordinary price Is thus desoribed.
Mr, Smith found the "War Series" approaching an end, and naturally wanted
something to take Its place. In his anxiety he declared that he would glvetSO,-
000 for a substitute or successor to the
articles which bod beenso prominent. At
this Juncture Col. John Hay chanced to
present himself »t tho Century offlco with
his MS. Mr. Gilder, the principal editor,
read a few chapters and was convinced
they would take. A council of war was
held, of editors and publisher, and on the
strength of Mr, Gllder'o Judgment, It was
decided to accept tho history. Mr. Smith
thought he had secured the prise of which
hewu Itt search—the materiel that wu
to take the place of the gnat War Series.
Hay meanwhile had gone back to Wuhlngton, and Gilder now wrote for Nloolay
aud him to return. They came, and to
their amazement aud delight were offered $60,000 forthe manuscript for whioh
they would doubtless have been glad to
receives much smaller sum. But It requires critical acumen and business faculty to conducts great maguine; and this
is tho way ln which the success of the
Century hae been built up,

"It's an 111 wind that blows nobody
good," said a well dressed active looking
young business man the other day; "now
it may sonnd strange to yon, but the robbery of Stewart's body has been of gnat
benefit to me nnd a great many other
people whom I could name."
"In what way*" Inquired the friend to
whom the remark was addressed.
"Well,it opened upon entirely newllne
of business and created a demand for my
goods in a quarter thst I had never
thought of before. You know I manufacture electrical watch clocks, designed
for use ln factorlee and other largo buildings when watchmen an employed.
Well, ever elnce theStewsrt grave robbery then hubeen a demand for those
watch clocks tn every part of the country
for use tn cemeteries. Tbegraveof nearly every rich or public man Is protected ln
some euch way, snd I oould tell yon of
graves that are watched night and dsy by
private watchmen.
"Ihera'e VauderbUt's gravs,for Instance,
down ln the big ffisusoleam on States Island. Isold them two of my electrical
olooke,onsof which is pieced Inside the
tomb and ths other outside of It Every
fifteen minutes eaoh clock Is visited by a
Plukerton detective, two of whom sn
constantly on guard. One of these detectives patrols outside the tomb while the
other Is locked In nnd .Its behind tbelrou
ban with a loaded repeating rlflle on bis
knees resdy for Instant use. It would In
nextto Impossible for any robber to get
swsy with the remains of William H.
Vanderbllt so long u It Is protected u
itisnow. The Plnkerton men are hired
by the year and than le quite a little
colony of them established down then on
Staten Island very near the mausoleum.
Itbink they keep eight or ten there all
tho time BO that those on duty atthe
grave nre relieved-st frequent Intervals
and are therefore not liable to fall uleep
at their posts. It costs mora to look after
the old man now tbat he', dud than Is

The I. ft. Islander
The new C. P. N. Co.'s s. s. Islander, made her first trip yesterday from
Victoria to Vancouver with between
200 and 300 passengers on board.
Commodore Irving was in command
and handled the fine vessel in thorough
style. Owing to aome trouble with
the machinery only one of tbe engines
wu used during part of tho trip, which
prevented her from making the rapid
passage expected. As it was the trip
wu made in 4J hours, the fastest on
recrod. The passengers were all delighted with the speed and comfort of
the vessel and heartily enjoyed the
pleasant voyage. During the day
sereral thonsand Vancouverites visited
the Islander, and quite a number of
people went over from Westminster
for the same purpoie.

A Flletage Wffleall j.
The action of the Viotoria pilots in
reference to bringing the bark Eaisow
into Viotoria harbor wu brought to
the attention of tho board of trade
council by the consigneis. The pilots
claimed that there wu not sufficient
water in whioh to bring the vessel into the harbor. She was then at Esquimalt and drawing 21 feet. The captain wu oompelled to lighter 300 tons
at a cost of several hundred dollars,
and the vessel was then brought in by
the pilot. A lurvey made by Mr.
Gamble, C, E,, government engineer,
showed that 'there was abundance
of water in whioh to bring the bark to
the rice mills' wharf at high tide, and
that there wu no necessity for the
costly lighterage. The question was
also before the pilotage commissioners
yesterdsy, but it is not yet known
what course will be pursued in dealing
with tho cue. The suspension of the
pilots ii probable.—Colonist.

The steamship Idaho arrived at
Port Townsend at 4.30 o'clock yester-
day afternoon with 300 barrels of oil
and 50 tons of guano from Killisnoo.
Tho weather throughout the trip wu
unusually tine, clear and pleasant, tho
thermometer scarcely reaching the
freezing point. From Pilot George we
learn that tbe schooner Leo met with
a disaster in Port Huughton, Stevens
Straits. While the vessel wu at
anchor she swung on a rock and went
to the bottom. The water is shallow
and the vessel is well out of the water
at low tido. The crew of the wrecked
schooner were brought to Port Towns-
end on the Idaho. It is expected that
the Leo can be raised. The Treadwell'
mine is running full blast. The Russian bishop paid a visit to Sitka and
arranged to extend tho services of the

A Bad Character.
Lut evening Constables Carty and
Smith arrested a man, named Harry
CurtiB, on Columbia street, who wu
very drunk and disorderly. This
moraine* a kloochman, who lives with
Curtis, reported to the police that he
had assaulted ami beaten her severely,
and tho marks on her face and head
bore plain ovidence of tho fact. From
what can he learned of Curtis it appear* he is a drinking and worthless
character, too lazy to work, and who,
to a great extent, depends on his
kloochman . to keep him in food end
whiskey. Iu return for the woman's
kindness ho usually abuses and
thruhes hor when. drunk, which is
often, and she complains that thu life
of a dug would be more preferable
than that whioh she now leads. At
the court this morning Curtis pleaded
guilty to being drunk and disorderly,
but claimed be wu not guilty of the
assault on his kloochman. Mr. Atkinson, after hearing the evidence, sentenced Curtis to pay a fine of -810 and
costs on the first charge and 820 and
costs on the second count, or, in default, 3 months in gaol with hard labor.
Not being able to pay the tints he went
to gaol. ^^^^^^^^^^
PUBLIO OPINION
Du no Vie for Contract labor—It is a
Direct Menace te the Honest Mechanic.
Armaments Worth Weighing.
The Colonist of Dec. 21st editorially
refers to the subject ot "Prison Labor," and, while not actually approving the principle of convict labor, yet
shows that the effect upon the working
man would be equal, as a mechanic
and a taxpayer. But a careful consideration of the theory will show that
tho employment of convicts will affect
the labor market, detrimentitig the interests of the mechanic far more than
convicts kept in enforced idloness
would affect his pocket as a ratepayer.
The cost of keeping prisoners iB as low
as eight cents per day, and, for the
sake of argument, say there are only
200 prisoners in a centrally located
penitentiary, gathered up, from the
ends of the district in which the prison
is situated, and tbe product of their
labor at, say, 81.60 per day, would be
$03,300 for 311 working days in the
year, as against $6,840 for their support, and let this $93,300 worth cf labor be put upon the market in almoat
sny centre, and it will affect it just so
much as to send many a honest working-man and his family starving, aud
if you reduce this rate of $1,60 per day
you make mutters worse. Then, most
mechanics hare had to,spend somo
time, and often money,'Sn acquiring
the trade they follow, and it would be
unjust, in this sense, to teach convicts
a trade free. The majority of white
men committed to our prisons have
earned a trade, and have the chance to
return to it on gaining their liberty,
while the "aristocratic criminals,"
such as forgers, embezzlers, etc., whose
education is their trade, also return to
it.
Then, there is a very important
phue of the subject tbat must not be
overlooked: that is, the danger of arming criminals with too)-'.
Then, again, while tho convict is
learning a trado the inferior work: he
turns out will affect the market for
that kind of work turned out by a
skilled mechanic.
Then, as a matter affecting taxation
—Who nre affected most ? It is an euy
question to answer. The capitalist
and, in this matter he even, would
rather contribute to the eight or ten
cents por day to keep a convict as a
"country gentleman" rather than hnve
bis houses tennntless, his oity bereft
of the bright lythesoineness of legitimate labor, and the possibility of his
having to contribute to a pauper institution to protect the man and his
family who otherwise would protect
themselves by honest toil. The Colonist
asks the very pertinent question, "Is
it good for the convict, morally and
physically, to be idlol" Public Opinion
emphatically uys "No," and idleneu
is not a part of the make-up of our
Srison regulation. There are a Iran-
red and one duties to be performed
by convicts which make them think
that the word "idleness" might have
been left out of our language. Yet,
the greatest punishment you oan inflict
upon a convict is to keep him secluded
and in enforced idleness, and the fact
that he does suffer by it deters him
from further acts of crime for fear of a
repetition ot the punishment. If it il
to be argued that all convicts upon
liberation should have some trade or
calling, then let these penitentiaries,
changed as they would be into industrial and educational establishment!,
contribute equally to the professions ss
to the trades. If you make tailors,
make lawyers; if you make tinsmiths,
make doctors, and so on; but do not,
in your philanthropy to the convict,
orowd out the men earning the least
money.
Publio opinion faces the problem,
and, as this large factor—prison labor
—would be centralized, and the rae*
chanics in the immediate vicinity of
these pensl workshops would directly
suffer, and, as the work could not be
gathered equally from the varioui
trades, nnd affect the profusions with
them, the problem easily solves itself
Into and naturally arrives at the conclusion: That, u taxation is necessary
to keep up the prisons, the farmer, the
mechanic, the professions, the property-holder, all contributo to the support of the convict, and it affects all
alike, aooording to ihe status in the
community; and it is better so, for by
so doing you keep away the working-
man's foe—contract labor—for convict
labor must necessarily be contract
labor. Public Opinion.
