The Empire says: -Senator Blair,
of New Hampshire, itt on tho warpath again. According to him,
"Great Britain can form no federation which includes Canada without war with the United States."
Should either Great Britain or Canada wish to make any domestic
charge this belligerent senator may
be assured that neither he nor the
United States will bn consulted.
If his countrymen are determined
to interfere in our affairs Senator
Blair will do well to look out for a
substitute, ub he will need to hire
one.
The Dominion Illustrated says:
The new minister of the interior
may be said to have an inspiration.
There is only one band of genuine
bulfalos left in the Northwest, the
property of Major Bedson, of Stony
Mountain, Manitoba. This he was
said to have sold to an American
ranch, but there seems to havo been
a hitch in the transaction, and Hon.
Mr. Dewdney now feels a bent to
secure Mair's "Lost Bison"—the
wholo herd—for the national park
at Banff, A moro thoughtful and
timely official  aot  could  not  be
A NOVEL DUEL.
A woman in Georgia who was
in earnest on the marriage
question, says an exchange, proposed to a young farmer whom she
knew well to bet on election. She
wanted to bet herself against himself that Harrison would be elected.
The farmer said ho didn't want a
wife, but as sho importuned him, he
finally said: "Woll, I'll take the
bet, because Cleveland is sure to be
elected, ond I won't take you till I
get roady." "Allright," said she,
"and if Harrison is elected you've
got to marry me on. inauguration
day or give me your farm." The
young fellow agreed to this, but
since the election of Harrison he
has shown a decided disinclination
to live up the to agreement. He has
turned his farm over to a creditor
and gmie to Texas. The woman
says that she will follow him and
mnke hiin pay the bet.
Tho radical's preconceived notions
of the aristocracy will be somewhat disturbed since the British
Boyal Humane Society have actually
awarded the society's bronze medal
for bravery to a marquis.' Tho
occasion bt the award was tho
rescue of a man from drowning in
the Tay river at Taymouth by the
Marquis of Breadalbane. He was
out pheasant shooting with a party
of gentlemen. Two men, who acted
as beaters, went out in a small
boat towards an island in the river.
The boat was swamped and tho men
fell into tho water. One of them,
named McLean, oould not swim,
and was drowning when the marquis
plunged in twice, being the first
time carried away by the current
and having to return to shore and
try again, and finally hauled the
man out of danger unassisted. An
eye-witness, referring to the rescue,
snys: "Except to those who understand what tho Tay now is in flood,
and how difficult it ia to swim in
shooting boots, the saving of tho
man's lifo may not appear sueh a
gallant feat as to those who have
experience of the power of Scottish
rivers at this timo of year."
Sword blades ale made and tempered so that thoy will chip a pieco
out of a stone without showing a
nick upon their edges; this information is given by a correspondent
who has been through the great
sword manufactory of Soligen, Germany. Ho gives to a Pittsburg
paper a long description of methods
used there. The steel, ho says, is
cut from bars into strips _), inches
wide, and of the required length,
by a heavyc utting machine. These
are carried into the adjoining forgo
room, where each piece is hunted
white, hammered by steam so that
about twenty blows full upon every
part of its surface, and then thrown
into a barrel of water. Afterwards
these pieces are again heated in a
great ooke lire, and each goes
through a set of rolls, which reduce
it to something like the desired
shape of the weapon. The rough
margins are trimmed off the piece
of steel in another machine, and
there is left a piece of dirty, dark
blue metal shaped liko a sword, and
roady for grinding. This is done
on great stones, revolved and wat.
ered by machinery, the workmen
having to be the most expert that
can bo obtained, as tho whole fate
of the sword is in their hands. It
is afterwards burnished on small
wheels managed by boys from
twelve to sixteen years old, and
when it his boen prepared to receive
the fittings of the handle is ready
for testini*, which has to be dono
with great care. Any fault in the
work is oharged to tho workman
responsible for it, and he has to
make it good. It is said that the
blade which will not chip a pieco
out of a stone without showing a
nick on itself is rejected.
The people of this country have spo-
keu. They deol.ro by their patronage of
Dr. Thomas' Eclontrlo Oil, that they believe It to be an article of genuine merit,
adapted to thn cure of rheumatism, as
well as relievos the pains cf fractures
and dislocations, external injuries, corns,
bunions, piles and other maisdica.

A  BLOODTHIRSTY MrKI,,
Montreal, Jan. 11.—Particulars of
a bloodthirsty and barbarous duel,
fought near Louisville, Quo, have
beon received here. Two young men
named Charpentier und Frochette,
who were aspirants for the hand of
Mile. Ohimene, quarrelled and agreed
to settle the. matter by going to a
: point on the hf er bank And fighting
with any weapon which came to hand,
fire-arms or cutting weapons to be excluded, until one of them was killed or
insensible. Yesterday tho meeting
took place. The battle lasted about
10 minutes, both using their lists at
first, after which they took to stones.
The ond came when Clmrpentier's
skull was crushed in by a blow from an
iron bar which Frochette had picked
up. The latter then escaped. Ohm--
pentier is still alive, but the doctors
say ho cannot live. Mile. Chimoue lias
been out of her mind since the tragic
affair happened.

Winnipeg a complete victory.

Washinoton, Jan. 11. -Tho free

MRS. PARSONS ONCE MORE.
Chicago, Jan. 7.—Mrs. Parsons,
the anarchist, yestorday made another
violent speech, similar to the ono
which she delivered last Sunday, and
this time, as before, she was unmolested by the poiice. Her audience met
in Wiivorly Hall, near the police head-
quarters, and wu ostensibly a gathering of socialists, whose purpose was to
discusB a paper on "Salvation from
Poverty." Mrs, Parsons said: "I
am a revolutionist, and 1 believe all
means are justitiablo to get rid* of tlie
present industrial slavery. Capitalists, our masters, nullify the ballot.
A revolution by force must come, uud
the .suuiior it comes tho quicker your
emancipation will arrive. Behind the
ballot must bo the Winchester riflo."
Concluding, tho dark-Bkinned woman
vehemently declared, "For one, I am
going to follow tho truth, even if it
takes mo bohiud prison bars, and if I
have to die for it."

THE DUTY ON LUMRER.
■Washington, Jan. 10.—Members of
tho; ■tiinr e 1 ub-coin mit tee having charge
uf the fciriff bill havo been in con-
fei'fitt-e for Eome time with the sena-
toiVfenm lumber states in the north
•vgfeQft tho proposed reduotlon in tha
duty on lumber. This was one of the
concessions promised certain sections
before the election, but since the election it hns been difficult to bring the
north west to the point where they
could agree to the reduction. It wns
at first proposed to make the reduction
to 91.25, which would bo to cut off 50
cents from the schedule in the bill as
reported to the senate. Tbe members
of the sub-committeo to-day came to
an understanding with tho senators
from tho north west, aud compromised
on a reduction of 25 cents. This will
be the amendment offered to the senate. This rate will l>e made with the
proviso contained in the Mill's Bill
that Canada shall remove her export
duty on lumber.
DR. FREAM'S REPORT.
London, Jan. 10.—Dr. Froam's report on Canadian agriculture, to be
issued next week by tho government,
will be sure to attract much attention.
Dr. Freim strongly deprecates the
movement against the abolition of the
cattle quarantine in tbe Northwest,
and says, "abolish it and the British
market will be closed agaiu-L Canadian live stock." In regard to butter
Dr. Fream urges the Canadians to first
supply the home demand for first class
butter before trying to compete in the
British markets. He reports gratifying progress in Quebec, in tho cheese
industry. He laments the abolition
of tho Manitoba bulletin as must harmful to Manitobnn interests in Great
Britain. He speakes hopefully of the
probable progress of the apple trade
with Groat Britain.

A BOW IN UGANDA.
London. Jan. 11.—Despatches from
the Congo bring news of a sanguinary
revolution in Ucanda. King M'Wanga
hns been overthrown and expelled and
his elder brother, Kiwewa, enthroned
in his place. The English and French
mUsioua.in the kingdom have been destroyed and the missionaries barely escaped with their lives. There has been
a general massacre of native converts
and all tho immense stores accumulated
by Stanley and Emin Bey have been
destroyed. Christian influence, which
had obtained such a strong hold in
Ugnin'.ii through the efforts of Stanley
nnd others, has been swept away,
while the Mohammedans' power has
been fully restored. Tho Arabs
threatened to exterminate the missionaries in Central Africa and they declare
Christianity shall bo swept from the
face of the land iu revenge tor the
English efforts to abolish tho slave
trade. Nothing further has been heard
of Stanley and it ia not known where
he was when the revolution took
place.
AN AFRICAN REVOLT.
Zanzibar, Jan. 11.—News of a revolt and murder hu been received here
from Unganda, King Mewanga country, on Lake Albert Nyanza, aouth of
Emin Bey's province. In October lut
King Mewanga plotted to destroy his
entire bodyguard by enticing them to
an island in Lake Tuen and abandoning them to atnrve. Tho men of the
guard were forwarned, however, and
refused to do Mewangas bidding, but
instead returned to the capital and attacked Mewanga. Mewanga fled in
alarm and his brother Kievewa wns
proclaimed king by the tribe, Kievewa, however gave great offence by appointing Christians to the principal offices in the in the kingdom. This enraged the Arabs who murdered many
of the Christian officers and forced the
king to replace them with Mohammedans. Tho Arabs then completed
their work by burning the English and
French mission stations and killing
many of the native converts. The
missionaries who fled from Ugenda
reached Gumboia in safety. An acci-
dentj*appened to the minion boat near
Eleanor. The boat was overturned
and sunk by a hippopotamus and five
French converts were drowned and a
number of letters for Emin Bey and
Stanley destroyed. Mewanga is now
a prisoner at Maga, from whioh he has
appealed to the English missionaries
for ut-atstaiiut*. The Arnba are vojolc-
ing over the whole occurrence and
have written a letter to Missionary McKay exulting in thoir triumph and
prophesying the extinction of alt missionaries in Central Africa in revenge
for England's slavery policy. Uguda
hu been proclaimed a Mohammedan
kingdom.
NM ALLEY'S LONDON CARLE,
London, Jan. 11.—The English
trouble themselves little about the
senate resolution touching the Panama
Canal, and few journals discuss it
Panama is not our funeral, is what the
English would say if they used American vulgarisms. The only serious
comment I have seen ia in the Man-
cheater Guardian. Ever alert in
matters, commercial, that journal
seems to believo there is more in the
resolution than meets the ear. The
senate, in ita opinion, means not only
to crowd out Europe but to encourage
America, whether u government or
by private enterprise, to take over the
canal from bankruptcy and finish
it, perhaps wtth a subsidy from the
American government. Col. Reves ia
named as active in this new move.
The Guardian neither favors nor opposes such a project, nor is there any
present sign that England would stir
should Panama pus into American
hands. The French, of course, would
clamor, but neither ia it very dear
bn what ground they could do more
than clamor. The crow of the Gallic
cock is just now subdued to sueh tones
u please the German ear.
THOUGHT THEY WERE GERMANS.
London, Jan. 11.—A Zanzibar despatch says the natives of Linde fired
on a boat yesterday, supposing it wu
the German war ship. When they
learned it belonged to an English man-
of-wnr they promptly made au apology.
A despatch from Cairo uyi the

London, Jan. 11,—Tbe market for

London, Jan. 11. —Barrett, the
milkman arrested at Bradford charged
with the murder of little Johnny Milla
whose mutilated body waa found, hu
beon released. The Bradford magistracy decided that a prima facie case
against Barrett wunot craved, and
accordingly the coroner released him

Friday Evening, Jan. II, 1889.
Of three great lumber rafts
planned for the coming season, on
the plan of the one which was so
successful last year, known as the
"Joggins raft," one has been designated for an inception on Fuget
Sound, says the San Francisco
Bulletin. Each of these rafts will
contain about 8,000,000 feet of
lumber. But the one which is to
bo taken from Puget Sound down
to San Francisco will bo made up
of longer logs than were ever put
into a raft in Atlantic waters. Tho
Joggins raft which wont out of the
St. John's river last year, and was
safely landed noar Hoboken, contained 25,000 logs. Tho ono planned
on Puget Sound will have 5,000
logs; but none of these will bo less
than one hundred foet in length,
and the great size of the sticks, it is
estimated, will bring the amount of
lumber up to the amount of tlio
eastern raft Tho Bulletin continues : "When tho Joggins raft
went safely through last summer,
from St. Johns river to New York,
there won something of a flurry
among timber mon. A preceding
experiment had failed. The raft
had broken up and 25,000 logs
went adrift in tho Atlantic Ocean.
The next experiment was so much
of a success that it more than covered all of the losses of the previous
venture, and left a fair profit to the
ownorofthe raft. The Oanadian
government placed an export tax on
timber and undertook to make such
unfriendly discriminations that
hereafter no Joggins raft, nor any
other which floated logs independent
of lumber vessels, could reach the
point of financial success. That at
least was the purpose of the unfriendly discrimination. It is proposed to build one of these eastern
rafts on the Maine sido of the St.
Johns river, and thus escape the
unfriendly discrimination made on
the Canadian side. Tho circumstances regarded as favorable on tho
Pacific Coast is that all export
taxes will be avoided. The experiment will bo watched with great
interest. If one raft can he brought
down from Puget Sound containing
8,000.000 feot of lumber, then it
would follow that many others could
be brought down in the same way.
Another result would be the building of extensive sawmills in this
oity, or nt points on the bay. Sau-
salito has already been designated us
one of the points where this now
lumber industry will bo concentrated. The Joggins raft is
covered by a patont. The
only novelty is in putting the
logs together in tho shape of a huge
craft, making the great bulk, to
some extent, seaworthy. The distance which such a raft must be
floated, towed or sailed, is not much
short of 1,000 miles. There will be
no intervening harbors where a raft
could find refuge in case of a storm.
But no severe storms are anticipated
in the months of May and June, It
is reported also that negotiations
are pending for tho delivery of a
raft made of Puget Sound logs at
the port of Valparaiso. Among
the capitalists to bo interested in
the Puget Sound raft experiment,
the name of James M. Donohue is
mentioned.' It is quite certain that
there will be no unfriendly legislation on this sido of the country
against any enterprise of rafting
lumber. If tlio experiments are successful thoy may go somo way toward changing the center of the
present lumber interest from Fuget
Sound to San Francisco. It is woll
known that all tho great sawmills
are driven by steam; the bark and
refuse pieces supplying the fuel.
When a "Joggins" raft comes into
the bay of San Francisco, it may
possibly be the beginning of a new
era in tho lumber business of this
oity." Tho Bulletin is evidently
not a little ticklod at the prospect
of San Francisco sawmills fattening
at the expense of the industry on
Fuget Sound; but how will the
lumberers of Puget Sound like iti
We don't want any "Joggins" rafts
to steal our timber in this province
and have it cut into lumber at some
distant port or distributed among
the ocean currents to assist the
hydrographcr's art, The Canadian
government did right in discouraging
that sort of thing.
We elip the following from an
exchange and give it to our readers
for tho throe important lessons that
it suggests: "The town or city
that haa been inflated by a boom is
sura to bave a reaction. After the
paroxyims of the boom then cornea
the weakness and decreased vitality
from whioh recovery ii alow. The
steady Upward lift is far better
than any artificial excitement. The
lift namber of Harper't Weeki;/ contains an Interesting account of the
inception and growth of Wichita,
one of the molt prosperous oities of
Kansas. That eity had ita beginning in 1870, when seventy people
were living there. It has now
about 40,000 inhabitant* Like
moat frontier towns, it had the reputation of being a hard plaoe.   Ihe
effort to make something out of
the place began in a systematic way
in 1882. It began with a newspaper man wbo started the Wichita
Eagle. He refused to make any
speculative investments in real
estate, depending upon the growth
of the town to increase the value of
his newspaper property. He began to write up the town, and succeeded in attracting to it a large
number of investors. In short, ho
started a boom. But this clearheaded man saw one day that the
boom was assuming an unhealthy
aspect. He declared that it must
come to an end. He had influence
enough to stop the boom before a
strong reaction had set in. The
town had increased to about ten
thousand inhabitants. When the
boom ceased the bottom did not fall
out. It had been arrested at just
the right time. The town continued
to grow, and it is to-day probably
tho most prosperous city in Kansas."
The lessons to bo deducted must be
obvious, but we shall take the
trouble of pointing them out to
save the intelligent reader any unnecessary mental worry. First,
then, wo may learn not to onvy any
town or city that indulges in booms
aftor the baloon pattern, nor to desire any such unhealthy inflation
ourselves; for "after the paroxysms
of the boom there comes the weakness and decreased vitality from
which tho recovery is slow. The
steady, upward lift is far better than
artificial excitement." Thia is the
testimony of an American editor,
too, and the Americans have had a
"largo and varied experience" in
"booms." Second; but there are
booms and booms. The true, tho
bcnelicient, the healthy, boom is
not a boom, as the word is generally
understood, but, more strictly,
a renaissance—a waking to lifo on
the one hand and a joyful celebration of the obsequies of defunct
mossbackism on the other. When
such a renaissance "strikes" a town,
the people begin to find themselves,
so to speak, to appreciate their advantages, if they have any, to improve their opportunities, to cultivate public spiritedness and confidence in tho future of their town,
and to attract capital and population from the outside in a steady
and ceaseless flow—all of which
culminates in building up a thriving and prosperous city on the most
solid foundation possible. Last, but
not least by a long chalk, the extract which we havo quoted illus-
irrtes very strikingly the important
part that is played in evolving cities
from villages by n patriotic and
lively press. The Wichita Eagle
referred to was tho making of the
town which was so fortunato as to
possess and appreciate such a newspaper. Another American authority
has said (and no one will caro to
dispute an American authority on
city building), that "a great newspaper, a great hotel, and a great
opera house will build up a great
city in a wilderness." Great is the
power of the press—"the lever that
moves the world"—without doubt,
In thoso places where general intelligence, business shrewdness, and
enlightened public-spiritedness have
attained their fullest scope, there is
the press most appreciated and honored. Conversely, a thick-hided
stupidity, not to say malicious hostility, towards a free and progressive
press are characteristic of a low ordor of social life—the fossil or moss-
buck age—which, in its most malignant type, can scarcoly bo waked
up with dynamite. These remarks
apply as well to individual members
of the species. It is the aim of The
Colombian—besides furnishing the
news, local, provincial and foreign,
in the most readable shape possible,
with appropriate comments thereon
—not only to mako known, without
exaggeration, the advantages and
resources of this city, district and
province, to the end that the necessary capital and population may
be attracted for the duo development of each, but, at the same time,
to promote, if possible, the active
co-operation of our own citizens,
individually and collectively, towards the samo end, by keeping
constantly beforo them our common advantages, and possibilities,
not omitting our dangers, and thus
discovering the most powerful
incentive for united and unselfish
effort toward an assured and enviable destiny—if these conditions,
unity and genuine public-spiritidness
can be once attained. Wo hope to
have tbe co operation of all loyal
citizens in our humble endeavors
to further the interests of this city
in the first place, for without such
co-operation and support as well,
tho influence of a newspaper is
greatly limited. We do not moan
to arrogate to ourselves any preeminence whatever, but, recognizing
that a good newspaper is a most
potent instrument for furthering
tho interests of its own immediate
locality at any rate, and that the
people themselves make the newspaper to a great extent, which in
turn helps materially to make their
fortunes, wo ask our cititens to help
themselves by an intelligent cooperation with and a hearty support
of their local preii. We might add
hore (although we never intended to
say anything of the sort when we
began this article), that a little "oo
operation" in the way of a settlement
of arrears from some of our esteemed
"supporters" would be duly acknowledged. It takes money, lots of
it, and the cash every time, to run a
newspaper, and we are constantly
increasing our expenses in tho effort
to improve the paper and make it
mora valuable to our subscribers
and a credit to the oity and prov-
ince. Small favors thankfully received; and larger ones in pro-
portion.
Do oot delay in getting relief for the
little folks. Mothor Graves' Worm Ex.
terminator is a pleasant and sure cure.
If yoa love your child why do you let it
surfer when a remedy is so near at hand.

ELECTION CARD
To the MunMpal Electors of New Westminster City:
Ladies and Gentlemen,—
At the request of n number of friends X
have consented lo placo my name In
nomination for the position of alderman
nt tbe coining election, fully realizing the
importance nnd duties of the offlce. If
elected I will endeavor to the best of my
ability, to place our city in the front rank
of the cities of B. C. The following Important questions will have my careful
attention:
1. Railway.—1 willuseeverylegitimate
means ln my power to bring to a successful termination the building and com-
{■letion of the Southern Railroad, und will
rent liberally any projected railway
whleh may wish to run Into our city,
always carefully guarding tbe best Interests of the oity. And It is my opinion
If wo nre true to ourselves and bury any
little differences thnt may exist and work
shoulder to shoulder, we can make New
Westminster the greatest railway center
nud most important city between Seattle
and Alaska.
2. Water Supply.—I am ln fnvor of tbe
city owning Its own wntef works, for thero
Is a very largo revenuo to be derived from
this source, If properly conducted, nnd, If
elected, I will at once take up this question
and deal with It on business principles,
Water rate debentures when Issued, bear
tbelr own value and will not be one dollar's tax on the ratepayers.
3. Seweraoe.—This is one of tho most
Important questions thnt the new council
will have to grapple with, and, ns there Is
bound to bo a large emigration here this
ycar.lt behooves us to be alive and get
our eity well advanced so as to keep away
those dread diseases which we so mercifully escaped last yenr. And I have no
doubt If you elect the right men a scheme
can be got up whereby the eity ean bo
properly scwerod.nnd the revenue derived
from l ho.snle of water be mado to nay the
Interest and sinking fund for both water
works and sewerage.
I. STiiEETS -Something must be done
nt once to open up all streets in tho city
so as to give workingmen and mechanics
a chance to gel to their lots nnd buildings,
and, If elected, I will glvo this subject my
careful attention and hearty support.
5. City Kali,.—If nny proposition Is
brought forward for the erection of a suitable city hall, nnd If tho finances of the
city will allow It, I will glvo It my warmest support.
G. Street Lhjiitiwi.-I will favor tho
extending aud Improving of our system of
street lighting, for there Is no doubt It will
stand considerable Improvement.
7. Park.—In order to mako tho coming
agricultural show a mcccss we must put a
portion of Iho city nark in a fit condition
with tiultnble hi'lUtlngs, etc. If olectcd I
will do my bent to make the grounds a
credit to the royal city, I am also In favor
of removing tho unsightly stumps on
Albert Crescent nnd planting a few shade
trees to replace Iho stumps. Nnturo hag
done much for our cily and It only wants
touching up a littlo to muke It perfect.
8. P-jumc LirrAry.-There Is no doubt
anew building fs wanted to replace tho
delnpldated one now occupying n valuable hit, nnd Ihoro Is no doubt In my mind,
but thnt a suitable ono conld be erected
with stores umlernoath nnd library above:
nud the rents from said stores would more
than pay for Interest and sinking fund,
nud leavo a balance for keeping tho library in proper condition.
9. Manufactukei[H.-I will encourage
any manufacturers that contemplate starting business in this city, treating them
Inn liberal manner, nnd will useevery
effort to show them the nd vantage of doing
buslneiB here, It la well known that manufactures are the backbone of any oity.
*10. Communications.-I will urge upon
our representative the necessity of tho
Dominion gavernmcntsubsldlslngn-dally
bont between bore nnd Richmond and
alio between hero nnd Ladners Landing.
We must nlso get better connections with
the surrounding district.
II. Lbttkh IinXEH.-I wfllnlsoomleavor
to have the postal authorities supply nnd
put In place letter boxes in tho suburbs
of Iho city.
12.1 will also urge on our oity member
tbe necessity of having tbe local government plneo ti sum of money in this year's
estimates to put the North Arm rood In a
fit condition for travel.
13. Street Naming andNumbbriko.-
If elected I will urge upon my colleagues the necessity of having our streets
properly named and buildings numbered,
as Is always dono in well-regulated cities.
In faet, any project thnt mny bn brought
up for advancing the interests of tbe oity
will have my* .-.ireful attention and hearty
support,
I remain,

! "No," sold the scientist, reflectively, to &
> bevy of girla who wore watching tho inflation of a monster balloon, in which a daring
"Cb-unpion of Aerial Navigation" waa to
ascend to a great altitude, and descend by
means of a parachute. "No i neither are of
' modern invention.-1
"Who -flrat thought of themt" queried
Belle Chalmers, a saucy, black-eyed lass,
. who delighted In "poking fun" at the gray-
haired old student
/   "The Montgolfler brothers,, of Lyons,
Trance, aro entitled to the honor of a first
Buccessi though," with a raei-ry twinkle in
bis oyoB, "it is recorded tha^ono, Icoxub,
I son of Dsedalua—"
"What horrid names 1"
"Incurred tho anger of Minos, King of
Crete,   and   to escape bis  vengeance,
fastened a pair of wings upon bis shoulders with—bum, perhaps beeswax, and flew
away."
,    "Then he is entitled to the honor and not
I the Mont-somethlng brothers."
"Scarcely, for ho came to grief.  Venturing too near tho sun, the adhesive preparation melted, and Icarus camo tumbling
down through space."
"And was killed!" sympathetically.
"Unquestionably," sarcastically.
"I never beard of it before, professor."
"Vory likely, as it happened about 1425 E
C.," replied tho old man, with a dry cough.
1 Then he continued:
"In 1707 ono Andrew Jacques Oarnerin in
Paris descended some 0,000 feet by means of
a parachute."
"Alive, professor!"
* "Yob, but upon trying it again wob
maimed for life. The next attempt was by
one Robert Crocker at VauxhaUGardon,
' London, in 1837."
, "Did he succeed!"
- "In being dashed to pieces. By the way,
Miss Curiosity, tho verdict of the coroner's
Jury in the case was curious," and he read
. from a book filled with memoranda:
"Wo find that'tho deceased, Robert
'Crocker, came to hi&death casually, and by
misfortune, tn consequence of receiving
divers severe injuries upon the earth in falling from a parachute of hia own invontiou
and contrivance, appended to a balloon, and
'wo farthor add that tho parnchuto was
moving toward tho death of tho deceased,
and is therefore deodand and forfeit to tbe
-Queen."
E "A very lucid explanation, X have no
doubt, professor, though I haven't the
slightest idea what It means," laughed
Belle; "but who next tempted fate and
broke his neck!"
" For about fifty years the mattor appears
i to have rested. Thon ' Professor' Baldwin
demonstrated the practicability of snch do*
' scents, and astonished tho world.  For tho
■ inflation ho uses oithof coal gas or hydrogen
I generated from water by tho vitrolio-proo-
ess, and-"
"Please don't Indulge in any scientific
jargon," exclaimed Belle, holding up her
dainty bands as to ward off au avalanche of
big words. "Tho vordict came very near
killing me, and a learned explanation would
complete ttie murder."
" well, then, Miss Ignorance, ho goes up
-I think be has beon considerably over a
mile—detaches his parachute and comes
down—"
"Witharushl"
"Probably, but you wouldn't fall so fast,
young lady."
■ " Why!" with questioning oyes aa well as
, voice.
"Because vanity is proverbially light,"
i and having had his revenge, the old man
; passed on to another group to air hia erudition.
Meanwhile tbe balloon was expanding its
hugo folds, and straining at the restraining
. ropes, with a gaping crowd watching the
fastening of trapexe bar and paraohute.
, The arrangements were superintended by
a somewhat fine and determined-looking
young man, wbo aoon became known as tho
1 daring noronaut. With Belle Chalmers ho
was evidently well acquainted, for ho lingered by her side, chatted familiarly, and
for rising color told that his words might
havo a deeper interest for her than others
understood.
"No, Miss Chalmers" he said, in answer
' to a question, ••danger has been reduced to
, a minimum. Btudy and experimental scl-
' once havo becomo Its master. At least
' while flying through the air there is Uttle to
fear, and about all one hu to guard against
is landing."
I " It must he glorious, must bo a thrilling
sensation, to become aa a bird," she said,
glowing with enthusiasm.
"Yes, It is an almost breathless swing,'
and-" ho hesitated. Then seeing that her
companions had passed beyond hearing, he
continuod: "It would be the crowning glory
of my life, Bella, to havo you with mo for
evon a single trip."
"Out not for lifo!" she questioned, archly,
u she flashed tho block diamond light of
ber beautiful oyes upon him.
"YouknowwbAtlmean.delr. Thrrttber
bast-een already jwomisei"     <"•'.
"HurtI:T*»**-•*oWlUuytfii know*only
to ourmearti,** ind she glanced around u
if fearful he had been overheard.
••And faithfully will I koep it as I will
tenderly keep you. But as regards my otber
wish, Belief
"Above aU things-would I like to go, that
is, for a little distance. My heart would fall
if venturing very far, u it does whon 1 lose
sight of you la tbe clouds."
"That would be very euy. Before,! go
upon my grand flight 1 will mike,* little as-
eansten, having the ballooo'futewd W^the
earth by ropes.   Many ladws havo dono
ifcM .-fl.. r. h   *,     W ■       <:.'     , ,. ,■
"Have they, indeed! Let mo catch you
taking one again, sir!" and she shook hor
fingers with playful threatening.
"Jealous I" ho laughed. "Go with mo,
then, and learn what a rote place It is for
love-making,"
"If I oan."
The difficulty Bella hsd m gaining Uio con*
cent of her parent* ("old fogies," sho disrespectfully called them) to making "such
an exhibition of herself," even hor most intimate girl friends knew nothing1 about.
And though thoro was groat comment when
tbo fact wu learned that showas "golng-np
In a balloon," yet ail agreed that sho looked
—the men "divine," and the unonvioua of
tho girls "just too lovely for anything,
wheh she appeared.
As to dress she wore a Bloomer costume
of blue cloth, daintily fashioned, and edged
and braided with whito braid, with hor
black curls hinging loceely ftom under a
wt'SLatl " • t\
jaunty littlo cap and long whito plume, her
(.'hecks ns Jacquinllnot rosoa, and her eye's
twinkling us stars.
Uud. sho been anticipating the trip for
months, she could not havo been bettor prepared. At least the lover thought so, but
guvo no expression to his surprise beyond
lilting his eyebrows and & peculiar, smile,
which Belie answered, by a saucv^lmtion
of nose naturally ahd decidedly rttroiiist.
With overy thing ready she stepped into
the basket of the balloon, cheered by the
waiting hundreds, and soared as some monster bird, not far from one who was accustomed to be lost among the clouds, but very
high for one who nover before had ventured
to thus leave the earth.
"It is Grand t It is glorious, tWs freedom
of motion and breath!." sho exclaimed, in
tho fullness of her happiness. . ',J|
"And gives you, Belle, a trifle of tho feeling one has at an altitude where every thing
you now see is lost to the byo; when breathing is difficult and tho brain becomes dizzy."
"I would not dare to go higher. As itls,
I am awed, nay, my vory soul shrinks in a
realization of tho infinite, as 1 never
dreamed of beforo."
"We will not go higher. As long as you
please wo will drift about here, then descend."
"What if an acoideut should happen! Oh,
if the rope should break and wo shoot
upward 1" and ho folt tbo hand resting
within his tremble, and suddenly become
as ice.
"No danger of that," ho answered, with
n nwiBsuring smile. "But probably we had
better descend. You aro becoming too nor*
voub *, too much terrified for enjoyment."
"Wait yet a little. It is on experience I
shall never forget, and I would have it last
as long as possible."
"I remember well when I felt aeypudo,
Belie, though It is commonplace how,
and—V , j ".., Hi m w\—     . ■»■>: ,-*-,
"Merciful Heaven I What doeslnii sucidon
shooting up, this outcry, meati." and tbo
roses of her cheeks woro blanched with
horror.
He knew but too well, needed not to bo
told that the balloon had hecomo loosened.
And knowing as well that, tho life he loved
more than his own hung upon prompt action, ho was not slow of decision.
"Belle," ho said, taking both of her hands
within his own, "you are a brave girl, and
must do as I direct, or Heaven alone knows
what tho consequence wilt bo."
"What must I do I" was questioned In a
hoarse, strained voice., ",
"Must descend my means of a parachute
or—"
"I can not-can not Rather would I die
with you." ,m»   .
At another time sueh a confession would
havo been the sweetest of earth, Now it
nearly drove him to madness. Yet still
keeping command of himself, he answered:
"Keep up your.courage, little girl, and
all will be well, Grasp the handles thus,
and in an instant you will be in the arms
waiting to receivo you."
Tho parachute was ready. He had secured
hor against falling by fastening her to It
with a rope, knotted around her waist;
had opened the valves and permitted the
gas to escape and tlm balloon to full as low
us possible, without ondungerlng the glossy
silken folds. Then drawing ber to him he
kissod the girl again and again, told hor
there wu no danger, and realizing it to bo
her only chance, launched her into tho air.
Against tears and entreaties, with force
thut could scarcely bu called gentle, it was
done, and as she shot down, he felt that his
heart went with her, and that it auy thing
serious happened to her it would break.
Thoso below saw tho coming as of an immense blue bird und cage; at first very
fust; then slower, With open arms thoy
waited; with swiftly-beating pulses tboy
reached upward, and when Belle Chalmers
came within reach Bhe was quid-ly seized
upon, and, half fainting, sho was carried
in triumph to her distressed parents.
It was a mighty shout that went up when
sho was rescued, and no ears welcomed it
more gladly than those of the aeronaut.
True, his own lifo was in danger, but what
of that! Had death stared bim in the faco
ho would havo rejoiced, and, whirled madly
along as ho was, tho light of happiness
faded not from his eyes or the smile from
his lips.
Bho was safe—that was enough. No,
very far from it. With the knowledge camo
the desire stronger than over beforo to livo
for her, to llvo with her, and instantly be
did all possible to that end. It was no easy
task, Tbe balloon had not been prepared
for suoh a fight, but coolness, daring mid
science at last triumphed. He came down
uninjured, thouqh tho balloon was sadly
rent Littlo, howover, ho gave thought to
that, when a fow hour*, later ho sat by tho
girl of his heart, with tho trials through
which they had passed making each a thousand fold moro dear to the other.
" So ho is safe," was tho comment of ouo
of tho bright-eyed girls who hid listened to
the learned disquisition of tho professor.
"Safe!" laughed another, with a spiteful tossing of her long curls. "Safe! 1
don't know about that; Isn't he going to
marry Belle Chalmers!"- Yankee Blade.

" I can bear tho heat, vory well," sold n

Possibly ho did not stop to consider that-, In
making such a declaration, he placed., him*
self in illustrious 'company.. Thomas, Cur

that of tho morning' crowing of cocks.

Schopenhauer exoeeds almost all  lovers of quiet in the extravagance of his

in inverse ratio to his mentul power.

The Injurious effect of ordinary nolso*

Mr. Harry Keary writes from JL.il-

boen unusually fine aud mild. No
snow has fallen yot and though tho
river is frozen yet the frost has not,
by any means, been severe. Cattle
are roaming at large and find plenty
of feed and consequencly the ranchers
will have plenty of hay to feed out if
much snow talis late on, Mr. Stevenson, the government road inspector, is
at Lillooet on business iu connection
with the proposed bridgo over the
Lillooet River, which necessary work,
it is expected, will be commenced
shortly. No unusual events or startling incidents have occurred at Lillooet lately.
From Quarantine.
The Columbian received a letter today from a passenger aboard the atr.
Premior, in quarantine at .Albert
Head, The writer says that the government officials at Vancouver were
very slow in deciding what waa lo be
done with the vessel and the small-pox
patient, and the result was that 46
hours passed after the Premier reached
Vancouver beforo the patient was removed to the pest house from the vessel. Capt, O'Brimi and the officials of
the company have done oil that was
possible for the comfort and pleasure
of tho passengers, and all will carry
away golden opinions ot these gentlemen. All on board ore enjoyin'g the
best of health.
The Chief Engineer.
There is considerable speculation
among the firemen as to who will be
their next chief and assistant chief engineer. These important offices should
be filled by none but thoroughly competent and plucky men. The sort of
Mion who stand back nnd give orders
only nro not tho bind wanted, but instead thoso who are not afraid to toad
the way iu the faco of danger. It is
tu bo hoped the choice made will have
the confidence of the entire public.
The Hyaoka meet to-night for the election of olficera, and also to select candidates for the positions of chief and
assistant chief engineer. On them
will devolvo the responsibility of
choosing good men.
In Durance Vile.
Dr Beckingsale, of Vancouver, ia
really a much abused man. He came
down in the Premier from that city,
with the smallpox patient, expecting,
quite naturally, that he would be allowed to go back again. On the steamer's arrival he was told, however, that
he would be quarantined with the rest
of the steamer's people. This was bad
enough, but when ho hnd to submit to
being vaccinated as well as the rest, it
was adding insult to injury, and the
doctor expressed himself fervidly on
the subject, still, with his well-known
good sense, he has refrained from
blaming anyone but himself, and it is
to bo hoped his enforced retirement
will be whirled nwny pleasantly, and
that the vaccination will not "take."—

Those who want good Beats for tomorrow night should get them as soon
as possible, as the advance sale indicates a packed house to greet the prime
little favorite on hor return. Spoak-
inr* of Miu Putnam, as "Lena,"
the Little Rock Gazette says: ''Katie
Putnam is a Little Rock favorite, and
tho reception given her last night
showed thnt her popularity was strong
us over. The house beforo which she
made her appearance wu crowded—
parquette, dress circle, gallery, and
even the entries had thoir share of
patronage. As Lena, Katie Putnam
showed all the bright vivacity and chic
which she possesses, acting her part of
a hoydenish school-girl, who cares for
nothing but fun, to perfection. And
not alone in this style of acting, but in
the serious, where Bhe pleads, with
tears in her eyes and voice, to be delivered from the toils of a hard-hearted
man, she was good nnd won the admiration of everybody."

Ordination al Holy Trinity Church.
On Sunday next the Lord Bishop of
New Westminster intends to hold an
ordination in Holy Trinity church, the
pro*cathedral oi the diocese, when the
following candidates will be presented:
Francis Ellington Wright to be ordained deacon, and tho Reverend Wilmot
Baugh Allen to be ordained priest.
Both these candidates will be presented by the Venerable Archdeacon
Woods, as they nre to work in tho diocese of New Westminster. Mr. Steven-
eon, to be ordained deacon, will be presented by the Venorable Archdeacon
Scriven (on letters of request from the
Bishop of Columbia) his work being
within tho diocese of Columbia. As
the service will commence at 10 o'clock
and will bo longer than the usual Sunday service, Archdeacon Woods, rector of Holy Trinity church, has arranged that morning prayers will he
said, as on week days, at 7:30 o'clock,
to be followed by a celebration of the
Holy communion at 8 o'clock.
Klcli Quart.*. Claims.
Richard Prowse, who arrived from
Texada Island by the steamer Fern*
dale last evening, brings with him some
valuable specimens of gold quartz,
which ho procured in elose contiguity
to the copper ledgei of Prowse, Tree,
Tippit, Eussoii and others on the
south side of Texada Island, The
ledges are apparently as extensive
as the adjacent copper ledgei.
Experts say the sample will assay up
in the thousands, and Mr. Prowse and
his colleagues feel that they have, after
many yean of prospecting and hard
work, struck it rich. We certainly
hope that the ledges may turn out to
be rich in the precious metal, and that
tho discoverers may live long to enjoy
the good fortune that appears within
their grasp. Mr. Prowse, with mnny
others, has always looked upon Texada
Island as being rich in minerals, and
having stood in with the Island for the
last nine years, his firm perseverance
would now appear to have met its just
reward.—Nanaimo Free Press.
This "Tocsin of the Soul, the Din*

VicroniA, Jan. 11,—The latest report from Wellington states one Italian
and four English miners and a few of
the company's men wont to work this
morning. The strikers turned out nnd
requested them to quit, but used no
force. Notices are boing served on the
strikers to leave the houses and a number of them are preparing to do so.
The principal topic of conversation today is as the best place to go to. It is
thought a majority of the strikers will
leave peaceably, but doubtless there
will bo a few kickers among them who
may influence others and cause trouble.
The str. Premier has been released from quarantine and will proceed
to Vancouver this evening and resume
hor regular route.
The str. Parti-in passed up at ten
thirty this morning.
There is quite nn excitement ovor

Police Statistics.
Lockup Keeper Smith has juat completed his returns for the year ending
Oct. 30th, 1888, and from which we
cull tho annexed statistics. During
the year *21C arrests were made and
from these 167 convictions followed.
Whites, of many nationalities, heads
the list with 94, Indians next with 63,
and lastly Chinese 69, Out of tho
total number of arrests 90 were for
drunkenness, the great majority of
whioh were whites. Of the 20 females
taken in charge three were white women and the rest Indians. Only five
of the unfortunates had been previously convicted, which is considered a good
showing. No Chinese were arrested
for drunkenness, but the majority were
charged with either supplying intoxicants to Indians or for larceny. On the
whole tho record is good when it is
considered that several thousand Indians and Chinese are employed in the
canneries close to the city during the
summer months. Of the whites arrested 00 were Roman Catholics, 29
Protestants, und 5 claimed to have no
roligion.

Victoria vs Westminster.
The return foot-ball match, Victoria
vs, Westminster, will take place on
the Athletic grounds to-morrow afternoon. The Victorias will arrive from
Victoria, via Vancouver, on 11:20
train and the match will commence at
3 o'clock sharp. The following players
have been chosen to represent Westminster: Lister (capt.), Coulthard,
Lewis, Rev. P, Woods, Oorbett,
Woods, Greame, Hamber, McMartin,
JonoB, Mowat, Pieklee, Whyte, Belt,
and Smith. If the weather is fine
and the ground in good condition a
stirring game may be expected.
Since writing tho nbove a letter
comes from Viotoria announcing that
a sufficient number of good players
could not bo got together to come over
and play. Twenty-four hours before
the match was to be played, and after
the Westminsters completing several
expensive arrangements, to say nothing of the valuable time taken from
business hours for practice, the Victoria olub coolly says "We can't ploy
you; several of our best men are not
well and wo cannot get together a
strong team." The writer does not
add that the Victorias expected to receive a right good drubbing did they
come up, but that, no doubt, is the
true excuse for the letter.

CORRESPONDENCE.
Hr. Cunningham'* Views,
Editor Columbian.—Will you kindly
permit me to say in reply to the letter of
"Voter" In your issue of yesterday, that
I am ready at all times to give a frank
and full explanation of my views on
municipal affairs, and have no desire to
be smuggled into the counoil as Ii insinuated. What does "Voter" require?
Has it come to this that every candidate
for the position of alderman is expected
to publish an election address ? I do not
propose to follow any sueh fashion, but
shall be most happy to state what
measures I ahall support (if elected),
when an opportunity is afforded. I am
not seeking the position. I have nothing
to gain, but much to lose by taking office,
A crisis Is on this unfortunate oity; an
attempt is being mado to strangle more
than one important enterprise. Pressure
from without and plundering within, a
new and untried city oharter which may
bo found to contain so many absurd incongruities as to render it practically unworkable and ill adapted to our circumstances, every thing in chaos. No patriotic
citizen can afford to look idly on and not
render every possible service In this hour
ofpcril. Weretheeiroumitanceidlfferent
nothing could induce me to offer my services, and I may state once for all that
I am prepared to withdraw now or at
any time before election in favor of any
true and loyal citizen competent to fill
the position who will pledge himself to
stand by the city against every foe or
form of opposition.—Very respectfully,

Telegraphic communication eut of
Toronto is still cut off and the violent
windstorm which prevailed last night
will likely undo what has been done to
restore it. Such a state of demoralization has not existed before in many

weighed and found to be 260 ho was
discharged.
