As an example of what money
will do, anion;; many other things,
it may be mentioned that, while
Thomas H. Blythe, of Sun Francis-
cisco, was alive there was not a
chick or child who claimed relationship with him. Now their are registered 127 heirs in tho court.
Surely a wonderful showing* but
then $4,000,000 is no mean sum.
Here is the latest outburst by a
minister against the professional
quartet: "Give me a bass drum, or
a Chinese gong, rather than quartets
of two youngsters, with thoir hair
parted exactly in the middle and a
pair of young girls with their wool
gathered over their eyes like a merino sheep or a Scotch poodle, who
troll out something which nobody
can understand and cnll it tho praise
of God 1"
None Required—"Let you and I
play mind reading," said the first
tittle girl as they stood at the gate.
"Oh, no," replied the second, "But
why," "Because mamma doesn't
want me to, and besides 1 know all
that is going ou anyhow. You've
got « new hired girl—your mother
is getting an old dress made over—
your sister's beau has gone back on
her, and your father stayed out all
night the other night."
No inconsiderable amount of
blood has been spilled during tho
erection of the Exhibition buildings
on the Champ de Mars, Paris. It
is calculated that 6350 men wero
treated for injuries or for illness resulting from exposure; 300 work*
men hurt thoir legs; 260 received
severe injuries in the oyes from projecting timbers or bars of iron; 114
wero scalded or severely burned ;
and DO had thoir fingers eut off.
The deaths from falls are put down
at 24, but it is believed that they
were far more numerous.
Writing from Corea, a correspondent says: "Everybody is in white
robes, and even though a man has
only ono suit in tho world, it is clean,
When ho goes homo at night, if he
belongs to tho poor class, he retires
to bed, and his wifo washes and
pummels his clothes. 1 say 'pummels' for ironing is an uuknown art
in Corea, After being washed, the
calico is stretched on a wooden
block, and then, with a fiat block of
wood in each hand, the woman
pounds it for hours. After sunset
all Seoul rings with the dactylic
'tap-tap-tap, tap-tap-tap' of those
domestic voices of tho night, as with
tho incessant cry of a million strident
insects."       	
A writer in a London journal
calls attention to tho unappreciated
uses and preservative qualities of
soapstone, a material, he says, which
possesses what may be regarded as
extraordinary qualities in withstanding atmospheric influences, those
especially which have so mueh to do
with tho corrosion of iron and steel.
From experiments it is found that
no othor material is capable of taking hold of tho fiber of iron and steel
so readily and firmly us this. In
China sonpstono is largely used for
preserving structures built of sandstone and other stonos liable to
crumble from the effects of the atmosphere ■ and tho covering with
powdored soapstono in the form of
paint on somo obelisks in that country composed of stone liable to
atmospheric deterioration, has been
tho moans of preserving them for
hundreds of years.
There is ono bit of oriental appreciation told about tho Persian ambassador that is quito characteristic

As lie was, through his interpreter,
conversing with the wife of a prominent government oilical, tho husband entered the reception room and
after shaking the minister's hand,
greeted his ftho official's) wife with
a kiss. Thereupon the diplomat
arose with great effusiveness, and
bowing profoundly, placed his hand
over his heart und announced,
through his secretary, that he would
hold over inviolate the confidence
with which he had been intrusted,
and that nothing should induce him
to reveal to any ono the scene he had
j ust witnessed. The diplomat
naturally imagined that, as tho
gentleman kissed his wifo before
him, he desired therefore to pay him
somo speoial honor, for be it known
that no Porsian ever kisses his wife,
or wives in publio, or is in any manner demonstrative before  strangers,

Nkw Yoek, Auk. 15,—The counsel
employed hero by Mrs. Maybrick's
friends, to obtain evidonco in support
of nn appeal for a reprieve, have received a letter from Alfred Monck, a
lawyor, of Montreal, stating that Mra.
Yapp, chief witness against Mrs. Maybrick, had to luuvo Montreal three
years ago to avoid an indictment for
perjury for testimony given by her in
a dirorco suit in which, after entering
into conspiracy with the husband and
his mistress, she swore thu wife was
an adultress. Her tsstimony was
proved false and she immediately disappeared.
Dudley M. Holmes, editor uf tho
Portland, Maino, Express, writes that
Mrs. Maybrick formorly lived in that
city, and was highly respected. He
suggest-i a petition of Portland citizens to be forwarded to Secretary
Blaino. Tho counsel here approved
the scheme nnd will forward all evidence in their possession to Blaine. A
well known lawyer, present at the
Maybrick trial, and who arrived today on tho Teutonic, says the judge's
charge was tho moat prejudiced he
ever heard.
KILRAIN ON BAIL.
Baltimore, Aug. 15.—-Juke Kilrain
was released on two thousand dollars
bail this morning by Chief .Judge Harland oftho supreme bench, for a hearing on the 22nd inst., on the legality
of his arrest. The action was taken
under a writ of habeas corpus, Kilrain
was present in court, and there was a
large attendance includim* some ladies.
THE TITHE'S BILL,
New Yobk, Aug, 15.—The .Mail
and Express London cable says : The
extraordinary somersault which the
cabinet has just performed with regard
to the tithe's bill has not conciliated
liberals, while it has had the effect of
astounding and exasperating conservatives. The announcement made last
night by Attorney-General Webster,
that the government had decided to
amend the bill by accepting  the  pro-
fioiial of tho opposition ta make land*
ords instead of occupiers liable for
payment of tithes, will do tho ministry
no good, aud even tlio cheers of the
liberals, with which the announcement was greeted, are scarcely consoling to tho cabinet. The utter rout of
the government was indicated in the
remarks of Sir William Vernon  Har
-,-juil, il.ni, Hit*   HiUllaltjiinl   j-ynninsti-jo
is equivalent to the introduction of a
new bill framed on precisely the same
points insisted upon by liberals, at the
samo time his statement, to which Mr.
Smith fully nssouted, that the liberals
could not accept or even discuss a new
bill until next off measure is before
them, indicates that the fight may yet
occur over the clause. Tho real thing
that has been done is the absolute surrender of tho government, with the
effect of disgusting its friends and ot
encouraging ita enemies to still fur*
ther opposition. Itwasn step of ne*
cossity to save the cabinet. The folly
of it is already manifested. The land*
lord party will not- submit to a pro*
posal to relieve tenants of payment of
tithes. Within an hour after Sir
Richard Webster had announced the
government's decision, the land owning taction of tho Tories got up a protest against the action of the government. This promises foul weather
wliich the ministers ennnot ride
through. To escape it, it is probable
the bill wiU be withdrawn.

Stocktos, Cain., Aug, 15.—The

accessory to the killing of Judgo Terry,

Arrival of lhe Coroaa.
The steamship Corona, Capt. Carroll, arrived at the outer wharf from
Alaska yesterday morning. Tho trip
waa enjoyable, but uneventful. No
rain of mueh consequence fell, but
smoko was prevalent all along the
coast for a distance of 100 miles north
of Victoria. The Corona had heard of
no more seizures in Behring's Sea, and
had not even heard of the escape of
the Black Diamond. No fresh steps
or developments were reported at the
quartz or placer mines. The run of
salmon wu a good one in the Alaska
rivers, and it is now thought an average catch will be the result.—Wednesday's Colonist.
Cariboo Qin-rlr..
A spocial to the Colonist from Barkerville saya: The Black Jack Quartz
Co., Conklin Gulch, havo completed
the crushing of 110 tons of oro, and a
portion of the ocnoentrates from (ho
same have been treated at the reduction worka. The free gold from the
110 tons saved on the plates amounted
to $526.82. Thirty-five tons of concentrates were secured, the assay
valuo of which is $1456. Eleven tons
wore treated at the smelter, the returns being $203.55. The result is
considered highly satisfactory, proving
tha reduction works a complete success, and also proving that the quartz
will pay to be worked.
Police Conrt.
(Before T. O. Atkinson, P.M., and Capt.
Pittendrigh.)
Patrick Daly, charged with being
drunk and incapable, pleaded guilty,
and was fined $2,50 and costs.
John Cavanagh, charged with erimi-
n»Uy MoauHing « Uftlu girl, admitted
that he might have been guilty, but
was not certain as he was under the influence of liquor at tho time.
Capt. Peele gave his evidence, stating the facts of the assault as witnessed
by him, and the subsequent arrest of
the accused.
Constable Smith testified that after
Cavanagh was arrested he used very
foul and abusive language to all who
went near him.
The magistrate in reviewing the matter said the case wu one that deserved
the lash, whioh would be a most salutary punishment. As it wu he would
impose the highest penalty the law
provided under the circumstances—6
mouths with hard labor—but a heavier
punishment would be inflicted did the
law allow.

morning on tho same chargo, but
pleaded so hard that tho magistrate
did not enforce the imprisonment hut

his fine. Instead of going to work, as
he should have done on being released,

CORRESPONDENCE.
A Good SniRciilon.
Editor Columbian.—1 would like to
suggest to the managers of the fair that
they offer a prize to tho person who has
raised the most valuable crop on an acre
of land this year. I believe there has
been $800 worth of vegetables raised on
an acre in B.C. On the American sido I
have known of $1,500 worth of onions
to be raised to the acre. I believe tbat
we can raise as valuable a crop hero as in
California,      Yours Respectfully,
Farmer.

NO CLUE FOUND.
London, Aug. 14.—Tho Working-

collection of humanity this morning
when Coroner Baxter, of Middlesex,
resumed the inquest on the body of
Alice McKenzie, the woman who was
murdered and mutilated by "Jack tho
Ripper" on July Uth. The enquiry
had beon postponed until to-day in the
hope that the efforts cf the polico to
capture the murderer would prove
successful. At this morning's session
however, Detective Inspector Roid
and Officers Walter Reid and Josoph
Allen, who havo been specially detailed on tho case, testified that not n
clue had beon secured which was calculated to lead to tho detection of the
criminal, and the jury thereforo returned a verdict of wilful murder
against some person or persons unknown.
A SHAM FIGHT.
Berlin, Aug. 14. — Tho Emperor
William and the Emperor of Austria
left Berlin nt 7:44 o'clock this morning
for Spnndau, where a sham fight takes
place. Four battalions of troops crossed the river Hnvel, which at this
point is 450 metres wido, on a bridge
constructed of 00 pontoons. The
building of tho bridge and passage
of the troops wero accomplished in a
remarkably short time. The battlo
took plnco on the heights south of
Spandau. One division of 10 battalions used the now smokeless powder, and their opponents UBt-d tho old
style of powder, The contrast botween the effects of the two oxplosivcs
waa r-triking, the troops using tho
old powder boing completely enveloped in smoke, Tho action ended in
the western force being thrown back
ou Spandau. After the battle Emperor William called the officers together
and criticised tho operations. Tho
two emperors lunched in a tent that
had been specially erected on tho field
for that purposo. Thoy returned to
Berlin at 1 o'clock.
THE HANGMAN ORJECTS.
Lonoon, Aug. 14.—Tho official exo-
cutioner, Berry, declares that ho will

The indications of progress nnd
enterprise on every hand within this
city and its immediate vicinity, as
well as in tho various surrounding
districts tributary to it, nro extremely gratifying to contemplate and bespeak   a  general confidence in our
resources and future that will go far
towards realizing a atill moro satisfactory state of things,    It is with
communities   in  this respect very
much as with individuals.   "Nothing  succeeds  like  success."    Tho
people of "Westminster city aud of
tho   district   ns well havo shown,
within   tho   last   few years, in a
marked   manner, that   they   have
some appreciation of their fine heritage and n good degree of confidence
in ita future, and are proving this
every day by their   works.    The
natural consequenco is that others
aro becoming infected with the same
spirit and wo are getting, and shall
continue to get, continual accessions
of population and capital, which are
the two things that are most needed,
to develop our splendid natural resources.   The most noticeable sign
of ouv progress as a city is, of course,
tho large amount of building going
on this year as compared with any
previous  year,  and  particularly of
residences and business blocks of a
substantial and costly character.   A
very satisfactory feature about theso
building  operations, which cannot
be -iiiid to obtain in all other cities,
is that no buildings are boing erected
on a speculative basis, that is in ad-
vnneQ of the actual and certain de
iiiaud.    Thus, anything like a reaction or collapse is guarded against
and a steady antl continuous growth
assured.    This sort of progress, in
fact, is characteristic of   the royal
city.   Everything is on tho most
solid   basis,  and, while advancing,
we make   sure of   holding all the
ground thus gained.   It is a knowledge of this fact, as woll as of our
unrivalled natural resources and advantages, that has made investments
in  this city and vicinity to be considered as among the safest and most
promising  in  the province.    The
various rural municipalities of tho
district aro displaying ah increasing
-and   commendablo   enterprise  and
eonlidence in their resources, as is
evidenced by tho different schemes
for internal improvements that are
being so   energetically pushed, as
well as by tho general policy of each.
Added to what we have enumerated,
that the lumber industry is on tho
eve of greatly increased development
in our midst, that tho salmon canning business of the Eraser is an
assured and immense success this
year, and the crops throughout the
district fairly good, both the immediate and more remote effects upon
the city, district and provinco must
bo couaiderable, and   of   tho  most
hopeful and satisfactory kind.
tan, but without avail, and their
union with (.'reece was demanded.
A resoulution to this ellect was introduced in the legislature, but wus
rejected by an immense majority,
and tho conservatives then began to
use violence towards the liberals,
killing and wounding them, maiming their cattlo, and burning their
houses. The immediate result was
a petty internal warfare, which has
now developed into an insurrection,
since the conservatives still continue
to hold office. The two parties nre
styled respectively the "barefoots"
nnd the "haversacki," tho former
comprising the poorer people generally, the latter most of the
wealthier islanders. The struggle is
really ono between the "ins" and
tho "outs," but it has assumed a
more serious aspect by reason of the
demand of the "outs" for union with
Greece. It is said, however, thnt
this is only tho usual formula of discontent, and that there is no real
revolt against tho dominion of tho
Sultan. But whatever may bo tho
truth ns to tliis, tho Porte has evidently come to the conclusion that
interference on its part is now absolutely necessnry. It recalled the
governor u few days ago and appointed a commission for tho purpose of settling the difiiculties of tho
islanders, but, as these measures
hnve wholly failed to restore order,
it has been decided to send a large
body of troops to tho scone. Greece,
is, of course, interested in the mat-
tor, becauso many of tho islanders
arc Creek subjects whom she is
bound to protect. The despatches
state that the Greek government has
asked the powers to intervene, and
is gotting its naval forces ready for
action. It would not be surprising,
therefore, if in tho end Crete once
moro became a part of Greece. It
is believed that Turkoy has no great
desire to retain the island, and it is
possible that sho might bo quite
willing to get rid of ic and its troublesome factions. Europe, however;
is tho arbiter in such matters, and,
should tho troubles continue, the
great powers will doubtless make
thoir settlement a matter of arrangement nmong themselves. If such
an arrangement is found impossible
it may be that the insurrection will
become the causo of the great European war which the world is expecting at no distant timo.

BAPTIST   CIIUUCH, Agnes .Street,
East of   Mnry Street,    CiOKt'fi Mny
A Constantinople despatch of
over a weok ago announced that tbe
Sultan had called out eighty thousand Turkish reserves for the purpose
of putting an end to the insurrection
in Crete, by force, if necessary; but
later advices state that tlie trouble
has sinco become oven moro serious,
and that the authorities being helpless, the Christian residents nro
forced to Ily for their lives. The
Cretan troubles aro causing considerable uneasiness in Europe, as it is
feared they may lead to an open
rupture among the powers. The
whole trouble, explains an eastern
cotemporary, has its direct origin in
the dissatisfaction of a portion of
tho population with the government.
It is, in fact, a revolt against tho
ollico-holders and tlio office-seekers,
and is an outcome of the system of
honpj-rule under which the island hns
boon governed for some years past.
Crete, as our readers aro aware, lins
boon tho scene of many insurrections during tho present century,
the most serious being that of 18GG,
in which the islanders vory nearly
secured their independence, Europe,
however, would not allow this, nnd
the result was that the island remained under the sway of the Sultan, but with an organic law which
gave it a sort of homo rule. In
1878 tho Cretans received a constitution, under which thoy obtained a
governor, appointed by tho Sublime
Porte, and a single olectivo chamber. For a time tlie system worked
well, until the governors hogan to
discover that their oflice could easily
be used for tlio aggrandizement of
themselves and their frionds. Having the authority very largely in
their own hands, they began to introduce the "spoils system," and the
present insurrection is the result.
A few months ago the conservatives, who wero in power, wero overwhelmingly defeated by the liberals
at the general elections. The governor, thinking to curry favor with
tho victorious party, began to displace conservative office-holders.'
The latter and their frionds demanded that no changes should be
made whatever, but tho govornor
paid no attention to thoir wishes,
and they then began an agitation
for his removal. Meetings wero
held and petitions sont to the Sul-

Uio Popular Approval*
Tin- political divisions and subdivisions
■ of tbo Swiss confederation aro tho same as
I those of tlio United States, savo tlmt tbe
, commune performs tho functions of both
township and county.  Tho citizens of a
•!ci',"l!borhoDd are grouped in tho govern-
m.'iit of a commune;   regional interests
h-'vo given rise to tho canton; tho federal
gcyorument unitos tho whole peoplo.
eel-respondent of Geneva writes:  To what
extant tho Swiss enjoy homo rulo' and how
Iii i* tlio peoplo govern themselves directly
l nitty bo seen in tho operations of tho i-of-
j   erendum in each division of the state, and
r   in tho composition of thecantonal undfed-
t oral executive powers.
3     In ono form or other the system of the
1  referendum has prevailed in somo parts of
* Switzerland from time immemorial. To
I* this day. In many of the communes of Uri,
GlariB, Schtvyz, iAppenzoll and Untorwald
th;! citizens meet, ns did thoir fathers before them, in tho town marltet-placo or in
the open air on a mountain plain to accept
or reject by n show of hands tho laws laid
before thom by tho communal councils.  In
[^ theso radical democracies tho right of
initiative belongs to ovory citizen, ho who
conceives a law having tho opportunity to
present it aud explain it at a meeting of his
follow-electors. Tho Swiss oommuno Is as
nearly nutonomous as is consistent with
eniilonal and federal rights. It is re*
gnrdod aB in a state on petit. It really ox-
cruises the powers that M. do Tocquoville
mistakenly attributed to tho American
township. His jealous of interferonco by
tho state. It docs not part with tho administration of its forests, police, roads,
schools, churehea or asylums until the
point is reached whoro tho interest of tho
state manifestly take the place of locality.
Through tho referendum of the popular assemblages of tho purely democratic communes every citizen bocomos a legislator
ills voico and voto directly influencing tho
decision of public quoations. Yet even the
communes having a representative government tho referendum may bo invoiced so
readily that lho poople hold control in do-
tailn. Within a year on tho official bullotin
boards of n commune in Geneva was posted
n printed notico announcing that, unless
a veto of the peoplo to tho contrary was
called for, a profossor in ono of tho colleges
would bo presented by tho communal council with an honorarium of 8340.
Tbo constitution of tho canton of Geneva
provides that tho peoplo may sanction or reject not only tho laws passed by tho cantonal legislature, but tho orders issued by
lhe cantonal legislative and executive powers. The exceptions to tho oxorclso of tho
cantonal referendum are laws declared to
bo "of urgenco" by tho legislature and
thoao relating to tho annual budget, excepting when the lattor establish a now tax, in*
creasing n tax already existing, or necessitates a call forapubllo loan. On the da-
maud of ut least 3,500 voters—about one in
four of tho total numbor inthe canton-
within thirty days after the official publica-
S lion ofalnw or order tho question of,'adoption
y or rejection must be submitted to tho
people. Tlio voto on tho referendum must
tube placo within forty days after tho thirty
days just montlonod. Thus all tho functions
of a direct democracy lie with tho
of tno canton In general, save that of dollb-
1 oration in assembly.
Under tbo Swiss constitution 80,000 citizens, or a majority in eight cantons, may
demand a popular voto on'any federal law
whatsoever and on any onlor emanating
from tho legislative or oxocutivo power
wliich is of general import or is not urgent
In character. Tho potition of tho federal
referendum must bo made within ninety
days after tbo publication of tho law or
f order,
Tho cantonal and federal constitutions
are also subject to rovtBlon on a voto of tho
■L people.   Tho voters of the canton of Geneva
"■nro called upon ovory fifteen yoars to decide whether its constitution shall bo revised.  Tho federal constitution maybo ro-
\ vised at any timo.   On tho petition of 150,000
voters—about one-twelfth of the total vote
—orin dose either house of tho federalassembly (Congress) demands a revision, tho
■ question whether it shall take place is Bub-
i milled to tho country.
: Tho records of tho referendum are curi-
[ cua, inasmuch as thoy show tho frequency
. with which tho people have had recourse to
it, and tho tenncity with which tlio democracy has clung to tho conservative customs. In tho ilfty-livo years from 1-iCO to
15*24 tbo referendum was resorted to in
,., Borne sixty tunes. Iu the Bix yoars from
1874 to 1880 five measures recommended by
tlio federal oxocutivo and passed by both
houses of tlio federal assembly, tho members ol wliich woro elected by universal
suffrage, woro vetoed by n national voto. In
1880 a proposal to reviso the federal constitution so ns to change tho regulations of
lho issues of bank notes was rejected by a
majority of 134,000. In 1603, and again
in 1ST3, the peoplo of tho canton of Geneva
rejected a proposed chango in its constitution, the last timo by u majority of 6,000 in
a voto of 11,200. Twico since 1847 tho same
canton has voted not to Increase tho salary
of tho members of Its oxocutivo council, and
it, has since docliucd to reduco tho number
of members from seven to Ave. Tho two
French cautons of Geneva and Koucbatol,
which only entered tho confederation in the
present century, adopted tho referendum on
tho avowed ground of its efficiency as a
chook to hasty and inconsiderate legislation,
On tho othor hand, tho Swiss peoplo have
shown no blind disliko of change or fear of
settling onco and for all questions of tlio
gravest oharactor,  A   constitution   sub-
; mltted to thom in 1873, tho work of tho
* partisans of centralization, who had presented the programme of "an array and a
law," went down boforo a majority of
0,000. Only two years lator, howovor, tho
present constitution was adopted, religious
questions connected with it arousing
nt ron g feeling. It was adopted by a voto of
:U0,(W0 against 108,000, tho Cathcllo cantons
throwing heavy majurUicn against It, as it

strain upon tho National resources and tho

to the polls on a wretched day in midwinter
nnd two-thirds of them voted "Yes."
Estlmntluff n train's Spaed.
Inquiry is frequently mado as to how the
Bpccd of a train may bo estimated, Tho
traveler ospoololly Is ourious about tbo
speed lus train is making, and wo suggest
three methods by which tho speed may bo
guessed with remarkable accuracy, as follows ;
1. Watoh for tho passage of the train by
the Inrgo whito mile posts with black figures upon thom, and divide 8,000 by t.:o time
in seconds between posts; the result is the
speed ia miles por hour.
3. Listen attentively until tho car distinguishes the click, click, click of tho wheel
as it pusses a rail joint. Tho number of
clicks upon ono sido of tho car in twenty
seconds ia tho speed In miles por hour,
wherotho rails are thirty feet la length,
and this is tho oaso generally.
8. Count tho numbor of telegraph poles
passod In two minutes, if thoro aro four
or flvo wires to n polo, and in two minutes
nud twenty seconds if there aro only ono
or two lines por pole; tbo number of polos
pnssM is lho numbor of milos per hour at
whioh the train is traveling.—Household,
SPEED  OF A BULLET.
How thn Government Loiirni tlio Rapidity
of a Ktflo Dull.
How fast does a bullet travcll  ir it is in
proper shape for traveling Colonol Flajjler
dnd ins oflleoi-s say it ought to go at a rate
of 1-576 feot n second upon leaving tlie rifle,
This matter of speed isverylmporui-.it,
and if^"cartridge is flvo or ton feet too fast
or too slow tho quantity of powder inu-it..:
changed. This matter of speed is tested in
avory IntbrosUng wny.
At the northern end of tho arsenal
grounds is it long wooden shed, in which n
distance of ono hundred feet has already
been carefully marked off, says the I'll la-
;lelpli..i Record. .At either end of this space
s a stand something liko a target, with a
brgo circular opening where tbo bull's-eye
would be.
„jross each opening is stretched a small
aleolriowlro connected with a delicate iu-
itrumcnt in another room.
Tho riflo from which tho firing is done is
jo aimed tliat tho bullet which flies from it
outs both wires. Obviously tho difference
in time between tho cutting of tho flrst and
of the second wire will mark tho speed of
tho bullet through one hundred foet.
Tho measurement of tliis brief space of
timo is done by an Instrument of French
Invention dullod the Boulingoohr'omogriipb.
When the Ji est wire is cut an electrio circuit
is broken and a rod which Is uiispcnded f nun
a magnet, falls n short distance, touching* In
its descent a point which makes a mark on
Its sido.
Tlie breaking of tho second wire lets drop
second Bimtllor rod in tho same way. By
means of the difference in tho marks on ttio
■oda It is possible to estimate thu difference lp the timo of their; falling, and from
this tho speed oF tho bullet per nccond.
Thero is ft provision for detecting any error, and nearly abaoluto accuracy ia so-
cuiod.
If it is found that a bullet has traveled
too fast or too alow that moans that there
is too much or too littlo powder in tho
chargo, that tbo compression is wrong, or
that the atmospheric conditions [aro unfavorable.
Tho charge of powder varies from sixty-
flvo to sixty-nine grains, and is varied by as
littlo as n tenth of a grain to secure just tbo
right spued. Tho compression may also
have to bo changed.
These tests of speed aro made throughout
tho duy, tight cartridges boing ilred at a
time, and if any ciror is detected the necessary chango is mado at once.
If It is found that tho speed is ail right,
thon tho accuracy of tho bullets in hitting
an object must bo determined. For this
purposo they aro tired over a flvo hundred
yard rango nt a twelve-foot squaro target,
near tho river bank.
Cyan ingenious device by which tbo aid
of photography is called in tho exact point
of each bullet is rapidly noted, and tho general averago of accuracy is oftorward ascertained.
Tlio l.iiueo lu ('oi-iimi-y*
That tho litnco is regarded in Germany as
the proper weapon for cavalry appeared at
thn military review in Hor?in in honor of
King Humbert. Tho cuirassiers, who
formerly were armed with sabor and oar-
bine, now curry lances like thu uhlans, and
It is ovon in contemplation to glvo lho same
weapon to the luiBsars.
A   NORTH   CAROLINA  GAME,

Back In tbo North Carolina mountains tbo
student of customs may still find material
fnr research, says tho Washington Tost
Tho most unique are tho kissing games,
which cling to tho soil. A lot of big-limbed,
powerful youug men and apple-cheeked,
buxom girls gather and select ono of their
number as master*of ceremonies. He takes
his station m tho center of tbo room, while
tho rest pair off and parado around him.
Suddenly ono youug woman will throw up
hor hands and say:
••I'lna-piuln'."
Tho mastot* of ceremonies takes it up and
the following dialogue and interlocution
takes place:
Miss Arabella Jane Apthorp say Bho's
a-pinin'. What is Miss Arabella Jane Apthorp a-pinin' furt"
'I'm a-pinin' furaBweetkiss.''

giggles and confusion on tho part of Miss
Arabella Jane Apthorp at this forced confession.) Mr. Hugh Waddle walks upmnn-
fully and rciiovos tlio fair Arabella's

Then ft youug mun will bo taken with a
sudden and unaccountable -'piuiu'," which,

volunteered information, roveals tho name
of the maiden who causes tho "gnawin1"
and "piuiu'." Sho coyly retreats out-doors,
only to bo chased, overtaken, captured nnd
forcibly compelled to relievo her captor's

At ono of theso c-ntortnlmncnts which It

shy of tho brido for fear of incurring the
auger of hor hulking spouse. Tlio game
went on for somo time, when symptoms of
irritation developed In tho giant. Striding
to the middle bf tbe room, ho said:
'My wifo nz pooty, 'n oz nice, 'u sweet en

WITTY   DR.   HAWKES.
How
He Declined it, "Call" from a
lllilTiiIa (N. Y.) Church.
North Carolina probably novor produced
an abler preacher that Dr. Francis L,
Hawkes, who a quarter of a century ngo
was pastor of Grace Episcopal Church, Kew
York. Short, thick sot, swarthy, black-
eyed and black-hnirod, ho was a striking
pcrBonngo. Ho was not only a great pulpit
orator, but considered tho bost reader In
NowYork Episcopacy. His rather luxurious family deterred hlm from accepting a
bishopric, which would havo boon otherwise tendered. Ouo day, says tho Washington Post, a delegation from a Buffalo
church waited upon and invited him to accept a pastorate iu that oity.
"Well, gentlemen, other thinga being
satisfactory, tho question of acceptance
narrows down to a business mattor," said
Dr. Hawkes.  "What salary do you offer?"
"Dr. Hawkes,'' said tho spokesman, - 'wo
recognize that you hnvo a high reputation
and uro willing to bo liberal. Our recent
pastor has rcceivod 18,600, but on account of
your standing wo have decided to offer yuu
$3,500."
"My good man," cried tho doctor, gasping, "do you know what salary I am receiving horol"
"No, sir."
"I got $15,000 and this parsonage, and nB
I have au oxponslvo family I do not soo my
way clear to accept your offer."
Tho spokesman looked rather sheepish,
but made another essay.
"If wohad known thut fact, sir, wo would
undoubtedly havo looked olsowhoro; but
you should remember that tho work of tho
Lord must bo done, nnd ns for providing
for your family, you know the story of tho
ravons."
"Now, my friends," responded tho clergyman, quizeieully, "I havo mado tho Biblo
my study ovor sinco I was twenty-eight. I
have read it through carefully and prayerfully ovor a hundred limes. I remember
tho raven fncldont perfectly, but nowhere
can I find any reference lo tho Lord's providing for young Hawkes."
Wanted thu Credit of Ills Work.
An aspiring young man who had writton
yards of versos for tho paper published hi
his nativo town nt first used hia initials,
"J, It. L," for a signature. Later, however,
ho emitted tho niiddlo letter, und u friend
askod him tho reason. "Can'tyou guossl"
said tho young poetaster. "Woll, It may
seem selfish, but I do want tho credit of my
own work. If tuda only two of,my Initials
peoplo will soon associate thom with my
bamo, but If I writo 'J. IL L,» James
Itusscll Lowoil will got ull tho credit that
bolougstomo."

Tram the Burnt f-i-infrv.
Mr. James Wilson, superintendent
of 0. P. It. telegraphs, returned last
uight from au overland trip to Samish
Lake, W. 1\, whero ho went for the
purpoBO of personally inspecting tho
telegraph lines. He found that tho
fires have almost burnod out for wunt
of fuel to feed them, and tho telegraph
Borvice, whieh has suffered so greatly,
will bu rosiorod within a fow da**** and
110 further serious trouble ia expected
tins year. Thu bush Bros in Washington territory hnvo covered a wide extent of territory, nnd have done all
immense amount of damage to valuable limber limits. It is not probablo
that the telegraph aervice will over

fires as it has beeu this summer,

Considerable anxiety is folt by persona who have largo quantities of cord*
wood piled on tho Vancouver and
Hastings roi-ds, for thu safety of their
properly. Tlio wood is principally
cut by Ohiuamon- who contract to got
it out at n certain sum per cord.
Several fires have lately boen started
iu tho vicinity of these wood piles, and
considerable damngo has boen done.
Yesterday nbout 500 cords woro burned on tiio Hastings road, from a firo
supposed lobe incendiary. It is the
general opinion that tho" many fires
that have been started during the past
couplo of weeka havo not beon accidental, but were incendiary, aud for
the purpose of driving the Chinese
woot[choppers out of tho business.
Tho provincial authorities should endeavor to ferret out tho liro, bugs nml

PROF. BLAIKIE',-*- ADDRESS.
Ait 111 teres ll iir Ulscourso on Hie l-res-
lijtcrtau Alliance,   lis lllsforr.
Alms, aud Prospects.
Iu spite of tho rather heavy shower
falling nt the timo (the first rain for
about six weeks), a fairly large audience had assembled in St. Andrew's
Church by 8 o'clock last evening to hear
thu address announced to bo delivered
at that timo and placo by Rev. Prof.
Blaikie, of tho New College, Edinburgh,
After tho opening of the meeting hy
singing nnd prayer, Rov. Mr. Scouler,
pastor and chairman, introduced tho
reverend lectutor with a few* appropriate remarks, concluding by saying
that the Pan-Presbyterian Alliance, in
whicli Dr. Blaikio wns known to be
greatly interested, and of which movement ho might almost bo snid to be
tho father, would probably bo tho
subject of tho address, although ho
(tho chairman) had uot inquired.
Dr. Bhukie. ou rising, said he had
the greatest pleasure in mooting so
many in tho spacious and elegant*
building, aud only feu ted thut his
voice would not bo able to reach thoso
farthest away. Tho subject of his ad*
dresB would ho tho "Genoral Presbyterian Alliance." Before entering on
tho subject ho would dwell briefly on
two points, viz, (1) what was tho idea
that our blessed Lord and His apostles
had of tho various sections of tho
Christian church, and (2) tlio history
of tho Presbyterian church since tho
Reformation. With regard to tho first
point, tho lecturer said that, although
it was impossible, on account of occupying different countries, speaking various languages, and by reason of many
obstacles by sen aud land, for tho
Christian church all over tho world to
bo united in ono organization, yet it
must bo apparent that our Lord and
His apostles never intended tho Christian church to bo a bundle of fragments, but that it should in somo degree represent tho body and resemble
in some respects a compact temple.
But sinco tho Reformation, it muat be
admitted, that this idea of tho church
had been greatly overlooked. Even
taking one section of the church, the
Presbyterian, there waa no attempt
mado until about twenty years ago to
bring the different branches together.
Touching upon the second point mentioned above, Dr. Blaikie remarked
that it was important to obacrvo lhat,
when tho Reformers throughout Europe, set themselves to enquire for the
best system to replace prelacy, the out*
como of that inquiry was the Prosby*
terian system iu most of tho countries
whore tho Protestant religion waa
adopted, orjit least in a great many of
thom. It was so in France, in Holland, iu Geneva, in tho Rhino provinces, in Bohemia and other places.
Whero this was not tlio caso thero
wero good reasons for it, as in tho case
of England, where the Reformation
was carried out by the influence of
Henry ihu Eighty and his successor,
who woro more political prntostanta
than anything, nnd did not want tho
reformed church of England to bo very
much different from tho former church.
But those who wero acquainted with
the history of tho Reformation in England would know that many reformers
in thnt country were not satisfied with
the degree of reformation in England.
Thore was also an exceptiou in the
case of those churches which were call*
ed Lutheran, but Outlier confessed
that howiis ngt, able to get the kind of
men.-itPtbe oUutah that bn tMqtuwwL
Saxony was a rough country and did
not furnish tho material required, but
Luther camo nearer tho Presbyterian
system than appeared at tho timo. It
was a romarkablo fact that thn out-
como of that movement known ns the
Reformation was decidedly Presbytor*
inn. Scotland was very decidedly
Preabyterinn, and for thia reason, tho
lecturer thought,* that tho system of
prelacy had thero attained its greatest
corruption -/and exhibited its most
glaring abuses. This is why tho Scottish
people determined that they would
not have another raco of bishops to
rulo th-uchurch, and you know, continued tho speaker, how at last that
policy of. -resistance -prevailed. Two
hundred years ago the Presbyterian
church in Scotland received a constitution from the legislature of tho country, which, substantially, it has retained to the present time. How is it
tho lecturor asked, thnt in tho other
countries of Europo the Presbyterian
church has como to so little? The reason was to bo found in persecution
and interference of the civil power..
Dr. Blaikio then detailed with considerable graphicness tho terrible and
long continued persecutions ta wliich
Protestantism was aubjected in tho
various countries of Europe by means
of which the Presbytorian church was
all hut annihilated, and Scotland,
which before tho Reformation wna
scarcely a country at all, became the
last stand and bulwark of Presby-
toriiiniom in tho world, the church
surviving the most terriblo persecutions and becoming tho centre from
which Prcsbytorianism was propagated
throughout the world. All of whioh
demonstrated tho wonderful ways of
Providence, how tho first worn mado
last and tho hist first, and the weak
things chosen to confound tho strong.
Having given his audience a brief
sketch of tho history of Presbyterian-
ism from tho Reformation to tho present timo, Prof, Blaikio said ho would
proceed to givo them somo idea of the
steps that had boon taken to bring together tho vast family comprised iu
tho Presbytorian alliance. In 1870
when the genoral assembly of tho
United States of America met in Phila*
dolphin. Dr. McCosh and tho lecturor
happened to ho thoro aa dolegatea
from the Freo Church of Scotlaud.
That wna n very happy occaaion and
tho feeling took root that tho principle of union ahould be extended. Dr,
McCosh waa specially impressed with
this conviction, and in 1874 conferred
with tho speaker at Edinburgh to see
if ho would hol]i to take somo steps to
forma general alliance. In 1875a
mooting was convened in Edinburgh
and delegates oame from all parts of
tho world for tho purpose of conferring about tho matter. They were unanimous that there ahould be an alii*
mice, and aa to its constitution. The
speaker, Dr. Blaikie, was appointed
chairman of the oxocutivo committeo,
nnd it was his duty to visit the various
Presbyterian churches in Europo and
invite them to send delegates to a
grand convention. The leoturer spoke
of tho great anxiety and trouble with
which this preliminary work was attended and also detailed many interesting experiences and reminiscences
which ho encountered among the
WaldeiiBians and in other pints of
Europe, In 1877 the first general
council of the Presbyterian church met
in Edinburgh. It wns the most in*
tere-iting meeting that ever occurred.
A remarkably interesting fact waB that
at this mooting ministers and elders
from the northern and southern states
of America mot together for tho flrst
timo sinco tho war, and that was tho
first stop for breaking down tho alienation betweon those two sections of the
Presbyterian church. Tho second
genoral counoil mooting took place in
Philadelphia, in 1880, uud novor had
auch a meeting beeu held on thia side
of tho Atlantic. In 1884 a similar
meeting waB hold, and last yoar, 1888,
another one iu London. The next
general council meeting, the fifth, is
to be held in Toronto, in 1802, threo
years h<mce, and Principal Cavin will
bo the chairman. Tho lecturor then
went briefly into the objocts of tho alliance. The first object was that the
different churches in the Presbyterian
family should know one another better, that thore should be aomo federal
union between them. Another great
object was to bring strong ohurohes to
help tho weak. And there wero
many weak churohoa, principally in
Europo, whore they had been crushed
by persecutions that wo could littlo
imagine. Even to this day they were
under great restraints and drawbacks.
The speaker cited an instanco where a
Presbyterian minister, visiting Bohemia lately, was forcod to road his
sermon or lecturo to tho police
authorities before being allowed
to deliver it. In Russia and
in other European countries grievous restrictions were put upon Protestants and Presbyterians. The object
wns not so much to help these weak
ohurohes financially, ns by brotherly
sympathy, counoil and encouragement,
whioh they greatly needed, and great
good could bo dono in this way. Another important object of tho alliance
was tho bringing of all the Presbyterian churches as near ns possiblo into
ono body, so that a member of any ono
should be a mombor of all. Thia wob
very necessary to tho succoss of tho
work iu heathen lands, where bo many
divisions woro a stumbling blook, and
interesting instances were cited of such
unions having boen already carried out
in Japan, in China, and elsewhere. It
was vory dcsirablo to bring about this
union. It would bo noticed that the
Presbyterian Ohurch was not alone in
this alliance movement, but nearly all
the other churcheB wero working to
the samo great ond. Iu ooncluaion the
reverend lecturer asked the audionce
to keep tho alliance and its objects in
thoir minds and heart), to give it their
prayers, and when they came up to
worship to think of the 20,000 congregations aud 20,000,000 worahippera
throughout the world, comprising the
great Presbytorian family. This movement towards reunion, the aponker belioved, would uot stop with anyono
section, but the desire would bo, as far
aa possible to be in fellowship with all
denominations, and thus help to fulfill
our Lord's prayor, "that they all may
bo ono."
A collection wob taken up in aid of
tho alliance, after which iv hearty vote
of thanks wob moved by Mr. J, C.
Brown, with a fow brief appropriate
remarks, seconded by Mr. J. B. Kennedy, and carried. Rev. Dr. Blaikio
acknowledged briefly and in grateful
terma, and the interesting meeting was
closed with the benediction.
