CRAZED   BY rAffllOH.
Grand Rapids, Mich., Doc. 13.—
James Gilmore, a farm-hand, murdered the wife of John McDonnell, a farmer of Tyrone township, a few miles
north of this city, for whom lie worked,
and then committed suicide. McDonnell went hunting this morning, leaving his homo and farm in tho keeping
of his wife and their hired man. Upon his return about noon ho found his
wifo dead in the house, and Gilmore
a corpse in (be woods ncroan tbu road.
Tito wife hud boen strangled with a
leather thong tightly wound about her
neck, uud, from tho appeaniucu of the
room, had made a desperate struggle
for hur life. Gil more committed suicide with an old musket loaded with
Wk-aliot and his throat and breast
woro riddled with bullets. Tho motive
for the tragedy is thought to have been
Giimore'a infatuation for tho woman;
and that wbon shu refused to take advantage of her husband's absence to
elope with him, Gilmore first murdered
her, then lulled himself, Gilmore was
a batch-dor, thirty-nine years old and
bad worked for McDonnell for several
years. Tlio wife was thirty-one yoars

STILL WASTING TIME.
Wilmington, Del., Deo. 13.—General James Wilson, of Delawaro, and

Hall to-niglit: ''What governmental
policy on the part of tbo governments
of tho United Statos and Canada
would be bost calculated to bring tho
establishment of the fullest and most
desirable relations between the two
countries'!" Ex-Secretary of State,
Thomas F. Bayard, Senators Higgins
and Gray, and other prominent Dela-
waraus, occupied seats on the stage.
Mr. H. T. Gauze, Vice-PreBident of
the Harlan and Holliugsworth Company, presided over the mooting and
introduced Mr. Wiman, who consumed
ten minutes describing Canada and lis
resources. General Wilson followed
in close aud concise argument on the
propositions, claiming that the truo
policy of tho country is to invite tho
British provinces to como iuto the
Union. Mr. Wiman's argument waa
ou the ground that the customs barriers betweon tho countries should be
obliterated, American goods admitted
fn-o and English goods taxed. After
tho debate, a reception waB tendered
the* speakers at tho Youug Men's Republican Olub Houbo.
OTTAWA NOTES.
Ottawa, Deo. 12.—A uow land district, tu bo known as Kamloops district, has boon created out of New
Wostminstor district, E. M. Bovill
has been uppointod agent:, with headquarters at KamloopB. The- extent of
the district is from Balmon river tu the
summit of the Rockies.
Dalt'ju McCarthy delivered a magnificent speech here to-night under the
auspices of the equal rights association.
Ho announced that eight months ago
ho had resigned the position of president of tho Ontario conservative union;
that he atill supported the general
policy of tho government, but that
duty urged him to support the platform
of the equal rights association.
Ottaw A.Dec. 13.—Sir AdolpheOaron
returnedironrilWcago,whoro he dined
with President Harrison.
Sir John Macdonald will bo 75 on
the Ilth of January, whon an address
will bo presented to him by tho
citis-ons of Ottawn.irrospeotivo of party.
Tho premier will be banquetted later
on.
A Montreal despatch says tbat the
Hon. Wilfred Laurier, tho liberal
leader, is coming to Stttnstead to help
Mr. Colby in tho campaign against the
equal rights peoplo. On the strength
of this it ia aaid that tho equal righters
will bring down Messrs. Chatltou,
O'Brien and McCarthy from Ontario.
A largo Armstrong gun of six inch
boro and weighing over 4000 pounds,
passed through here a few days ago
for Esquimalt. It is Bent out by tho
imperial government to increase tho
fortifications at Esquimalt.
Mr. Cliiroiico Ashford, tho attorney*
genct-ul of the Sandwich Islands, is
here. Ho thinks that a steamship service betweon Vancouver and Honolulu
with cheap rates on tho Canadian Pacific Railway Wuuld result iu tho development of trade relations with
Canada. Britiah Columbia could supply lumber, coal, salmon, and Canada
fruit. Ho Bays that an English oom*
puny wits oflerod a liberal concession
for 15 yoars if it wuuld lay a cable to
Vancouvor within two yoars.
The Octoroon.
Last'night tho E3aio Tittell Company played ton go-id uucUeuco thia
well known southern play by Dion
llouciouilt. MissEsaio Tittell, who
took tlio part of -'/vie," was excellent
and in tho lust acono gained well
merited spplauEe. Mr. Sam Morris,
aa tho colored servant, also showed to
ndviintage, aud Mr. F. CIuvob, aa tbe
Indian, was well made up nnd bis acting was good. All tho roat of the
characters woro well takon throughout,
though the cries of the little darkio
cook wero a trifle oppressive in a very
touching part. This excellent company will present "East Lynno" at a
matinee thia aftornoon, and to-night.
People with ehildron should tako tho
opportunity of attending tho matinee,
as it will undoubtedly be a great treat.

Canada's Pictorial.
In tho Dominion Illustrated for December 7th the series of Canadian Industries iB continued-- the works of the
Montreal Rubber Company forming
the them*) of an articlo and a number
of illustrations. This is a feature of
our pictorial contemporary that ought
to be extensively taken advantage of
by uur manufacturers. Tho view of
the Brant Memorial, Victoria Park,
Brantford, will bo prized by ull friends
of tho aboriginal tubes, and by all admirers of the brave and loyal chief
who fought for Canada and tho empire.
Thore nro also sumo other views illustrative of Braniford's progress. Military oirolos will onjoy tho P.E.I. Winning Team, and sportsmen will appreciate Mr. Munn's Fox Hounds. The
rest of tho numbor is up to tbe usual

MAJOB PINTO,
Au EntcrprlBlag Portuguese Starts
Out to Devastate tbe African Interior.
Tlie Strike of tlie Gas Workers in
England Proves to be a
Complete Failure.
The English Papers Call upou Lord
Salisbury to Give Pinto's Countrymen a Lesson.
PINTO WILL Bl ADMONISHED.
Zanzibar. Dee. H.—Major Pinto,
tbe Portuguese leader, ha. announced
hi. intention ol scouring tha wholo
country to tbe Nyanza, and has written to all English reaid.nl. to place
thenuBl.'ei under Portuguese protection or he will not be responsible tor
the consequences. Mozambique advices are to tbe effect that Pinto, alter
deceiving Britiih Consul Johnston by
declaring his pewtlul intention., obtained reinforcement, at Moumbiuu.
and proceeded to the Makolow country.
On the border of tbat country he found
a large camp, picked a quarrel and
declared war on the Makolow. slaughtering hundred, of them with hi. Bat-
ling gum, and capturing two English
(lags.
PERFIDIOUS PORTDOAL.
London, Dec. 14.—The Pal! Mall
Cassette say. that Lord Salisbury mod
uot hesitate to take deciaive action to
resist Supa Pinto's progress. Tho
course ot the Portuguese representatives must be stopped or England will
be compelled to regard Portugal as
having made a declaration of hostility.
The Globe says: "Portugal's conduct
is practically a cnunis btUi; while negotiations were proceeding Portugal
has struck a blow for herself in a singularly treacherou. manner. England does not relish waning on contemptible foes, but if they become arrogant she will not hesitate to make her
power felt." The Globe also suggests
that the British fleet in African waters
might exercise a gentle pressure upon
tho recalcitrant Portuguese authorities,
LOOKS LIKE A FAILURE.
Lohdoh,  Dec.    14 The striking

A SOCIETY PROCURESS. '
London, Deo. 13.—Great excitement
has been caused in high ciicles in Berlin by the arrest of a woman occupying
an Mailed position in society on a well
sustained charge of being a procuress.
It is learned that she has been engaged
in her nefarious business for aeveral
years, her operations beiug confined to
pandering to the lewdness of men of
high social standing. Most of her
customer, being also of the better
class. Extraordinary efforts are being
mado to suppress the details snd prevent a public trial of the libidinous
disgrace to womankind, while, on the
other hand, there is a strong disposition on the part of many, who aee in a
public exposure of the scandal an opportunity to crush rivals and revenge
themselves upon real or fancied enemies, to foroe the trial through the
ordinary channel.
IBE OAS WORKERS STRIKE.
London, Deo. 13.—Tho success
which hss thus far attended the gas
companies' resistance of the strikes,
and the comparative ease with which
they have been able to obtain more
than enough men to fill the places ot
their old hands, hai driven the latter
to an extreme of deuporali m, which
augurs their complete discomfiture.
Already the .Inkers are qiiurrclhg
among themselves and with tow ex.
ceptions are giving themselves up tr>
drink snd debauchery to an extent
which is fast depriving them ■•! the
little public sympathy their ciuliu enlisted. The lack of a leader, too, ia
shown in their faulty organization and
the t< ul abience of discipline which
choracterir.es their movement.. There
seems lo bo no men among them upon
whose directions they implicitly rely,
and tho jealousy whioh prevails among
the would-be leaden I. fatal to any
unanimity of purpose. In faot, the
movement i. fast losing the dignity of
a striko and is rapidly exhausting th.
patience of tho police and people. It
is Btated that among the new men employed by the company aro a numbor
of thievos and rogues, whose solo object in applying for work waa to seek
an opportunity for pillage. This is
probably the truth, but this element is
not of sufficient strength to oause the
company much anxiety or to give a
realization to the hopes of the strikers
that their chances will be improved by
disorder within the works. Those of
the new men against whom suspicion
rests, are being closely watched, and
the likelihood of their resorting to unlawful acts is very remote.

caio of Robertson vs. EUis & Sargison,
This was an appeal from tho judgment of Mr. Justice Crease, st the
trial of the action for libel brought by
Oapt. Robertiou agaluit the Colonist.
The judgment given was In favor of
the defendants, after the verdict of the
jury that tbe article complained of was
libelous but that the plaintiff had suffered no damage. An apology was
givon and his lordship deoided that the
Slaintiff should get costs against the
cfendants up to the time of the apology, and the defendants cost, againit
the plaintiff after the apology. The
court reversed the judgment entirely
and decided that judgment bo entered
for the plaintiff with costs. W. J.
Taylor for appellant) Hon. 0. E.
Pooley, Q.C., for respondent.
The Columbian is pleased that the
evidence in thi. ease completely exonerated Oapt. Robertson, and the
steps he took to set himself right before the public, were his only resource
under the oiroumitanoea.

0.x .Monday the ratepayers of
Westminster will have tho opportunity of voting on two loan by-laws
to empower the city to borrow tl
aggregate amount of S;iO,000. Tl:
by-laws are, respectively, tl:
"Queen's Park Loan By-law," for
818,000, and tha '-Moody Square
and Albert Orescent Loan Jiy law,"
for §12,000. The $1S,U00 called
for by the first mentioned by-law is
to be expended us follows : The sum
of $7,000 or thereabout'', which up
to the end of tho current year will
have been expended upon Queen's
park out of the general revenue,
shall be refunded to tbat account ■
the remainder, $11,000 or less, to be
expended in further improvements
on Queen's park. The $12,000
sought to be borrowed under the
second loan measure above will, if
tho by-law carries, he expended on
improvements to Moody Square and
Albert Orescent for the purpose of
making thom available as recreation
grounds, in tho proportion, we
understand, although tho by-law
does not state so, of about $10,000
to the former and $2,000 to tho
latter.
The question as to tho advisability of borrowing the sums above and
prosecuting the improvements which
the loans will provide for waB pretty
thoroughly discussed over a month
ago by public meeting and in the
press, and it was on the almost unanimous expressed approval of a
public meeting embracing many of
the most solid ratepayers of the city
that the bylaws in question were
introduced by the council. It is unnecessary, as this has been pointed
out before and is besides patent to
nearly every citizen, to show that
Queen's park, including tho exhibition grounds—while an immense
credit, to tho city, considering the
shortness of time iu wliich it was
converted from a howling waste to
its present fair condition—is still,
necessarily, in a very unfinished
state, nnd requires a certain amount
of additional improvements to retain and make the most of those already effected. The $10,000 or$U,-
000 availablo for this work next
year, if the by-law is passed, and
after the amount expropriated from
the general treasury lias been re
funded—a most desirable thing to
do—will, of course, come far short
of carrying out nil thu contemplated
improvements to Queen's park—
which will make that resort eventually worthy of the proudest city on
tho continent—but tho sum mentioned will enable the present recreation grounds and the exhibition
buildings and grounds to be put in
a very satisfactory stato of completion. Aud this object will be conceded to be most desirable, moro
especially as noxt full a much grander provincial exhibition than the
lust is designed fco be hold in this
oity. The ratepayers, wo believe,
judging from their expressions already given, will almost unanimously endorse tho Queen's park loan by-
lnw.
The Moody Square and Orescent
improvement*! hnvo nlso beon pretty
thoroughly canvassed. Moody Square
ia a tine level piece of ground iu the
west end, con tail ting about twenty
aores, nud capable nf being convert**'!
inlo a Imndfloiiio park with recreation
gruuiuU. The Westondeis naturally
desire such a reaoit, as Qucon'a Park
is too far distant to be practicably
available fur tlietn, and it is only fair
to thu western seotiun of tho city that
sonic steps should be taken noxt year
to provido public pleasure (-rounds in
that vicinity. As for the CroBcent, tho
condition i.f thnt beautifully situated,
B') called, plena up- ground tins long
been ii lupronch to tlio city, which its
prominent position aggravates. Tlto
$2,000 which itia proposed to expend
there will do something towards
Bmoothing off soiiie of tliu present gro-
tesquo adornment- of lho grounds aud
bring out s mo of thoir natural beauties. Tho Moody Squaro and Crescent
loan by-law, wo believe, should receivo
tho assent of the ratepayer..
refused to te responsible to the assembly for the expenditure of tho
Dominion grant. On tho other hand
the assembly consider, that they
should have control of all funds and
expenditures. A memorial has been
prepared and forwarded to the minister of the interior, asking that tho
doubtful clauses in the territories
act be so amended as to give the assembly full control of tho entiro
revenue. This only looks reason
able, that moneys voted for governmental purposes in tho territories
should bo under the control of the
representatives of the people, rather
than placed in the hands of an autocratic governor. The memorial asks
that the advisory council should bo
reduced to threo members, who
should be paid for thoir services, and
that the governor should not be a
member of the council. A paid advisory council would no doubt undertake to prepare legislation for tho
consideration of the assembly. One
of the present dilHculties is, that
there is no responsible body to perform such work. Tho results of
the last session havo shown that
further, changes aro required in the
mode of governing the territories,
and no doubt somo patching will be
douo to the territories act at the
next session of parliament. It is
not Hkely, however, that anything
short of full responsible government
tfill satisfy at least tho leaders of
tho movement in the territories.
Thero are no doubt somo mombera
of tho assembly who for personal
motives would like to see tho present legislative body blossom out
into a provincial legislature, with a
full Hedged government. Altogether, howover, the movement forn
larger share of responsible government must be considered un honest
one, and ns already stated, the necessity seems to exist for some
change in the mode of administering the aftUirs of our territories.

The death of.Eobert Browning at
tho ripe ngo of 77 yenrs, loaves a
gap in the ranks of literary men,
Born at Camberwell, a suburb of
London, and educated at University
College, Browning was a Master of
Arts, Hon. Fellow of Balliol Colloae,
n D. O. L. of the University of Oxford, nnd an Ll,. D. of both Edinburg and Cambridge. His famo as
a poet is to-day world-wide, but as
early as the year 1833 "Pauline"
had earned the warm commendation
of so stern a critic ns Rossotli. In
1S35, after a stay in Eussia and
Italy, Browning gave to the world
"Paracelsus," and later on, nt tbe
suggestion of Macrcndy, the nctor,
"Strafford," a play, wns written nnd
produced at Covont Garden theatre.
Prom that time forward numerous
and frequont efforts appeared from
his facile and brillinnt pen. "Ring
and tiio Book" was given to tiio
world ill 18G8, nnd at once doclnred
to bo ono of his finest productions,
but perhaps nono other of his works
has caught public favor to tho samo
extent as "Fifino nt the Pair," writ-
ton in 1872. So popular havo his
writings become that a Browning
society was established in 1SS1,
with Sir P. Leighton, the artist, and
Mv. Henry Trving, tlio actor, for
vice-presidents. This popularity is,
however, purely that of tlio cultured, and among every day
men nnd women of the world
Browning is as littlo known
by his works us is Etty, the urtist,
Personally the great poet has boen
recently described as short and
stout, with whito hair and a glow
of ruddy health. His linir he woro
quite long and also woro a. moustache. His enjoyment of society
was keon and he had a weakness
for dinners, balls and receptions.
It is evon stated that ho wos a groat
llirt nud vory proud of his conquests.
A most agreeable conversationalist,
and of courso well posted on ovory
subject, cultured and refined, Robt.
Browning numbered among his
friends tho great men of tlio entiro
world, and his presence was considered to put a most learned and distinguished stamp on any reunion.
In 1810 Mr. Browning married the
poetess, Elisabeth Barrett, wbo died
in 1801. Tiie marriage wns tbo
happy union ot kindred spirits, uud
how deeply tho poet felt tho loss of
wife, was   only   very recently
his
exemplified in the spirited versos
witii which he resented somo remarks concerning her, mndo by
Fitzgerald years beforo in private
correspondence, but which had been
made publio by nn injudicious biographer. As a playwritcr his efforts
wero nover of a popular naturo in
tho broad sense of tho term, but
what thoy luck in dramatic forco is
atoned for by their literary merit,
and it is not tno nine!) to say tlmt
"Colombo's Birthday" and "tiie
Blot on the Scutcheon" aro two of
his most excellent productions, judged
from a literary standpoint. Unlike
Tennyson, Browning maintained
his excellence to old ago and his
"Parloyings with Certain Poopio of
Importance in Thoir Day," a book-
published but two years ago, ranks
high among his works. Although
his poetry was not of the "popular"
order, his place in tho roll of famous English literary mon is secure,
but it will remain for future generations to assign him his proper placo
among tho greater poets of our Ian-
Siago.

CATCHING AN
f The Unfortunate Mistake Made by
a Would-Be Lover.
I He Tiles to Appear at HU Best, Is Sweet
ua His Sister'*. Cook nnU Catches Nothing But a Distressingly Bad Osse
of Influcnia.
I came down to Knelford on account of a
letter I had just received from my Bister
Leonio,. tells a story-writer in an English
magazine. Bhe stated that Miss Mountjoy,
the heiress, was to be at the hall, and that
ifl was on the ground in time I might have
a fair show to get hold of her fortune.
Grant Morrall, who had been my rival always, was coming down later, and X had no
doubt that ho would try himself to win the
money if only to spite me.
When I arrived at the Knelford station I
was disappointed to hear that my sister had
not sent down' any carriage to meet me.
The station-master informed me that there
was a young lady who wanted to go up to
the hall, aud that we might go together in
tbe stage. At once the thought flashed over
mo that this must be Miss Mountjoy, and I
was delighted at the prospect of showing
hor my disinterested courtesy.
Bhe was a homely girl, but with rather a
pleasant expression in her eyes, and I quite
took a fancy to her.
All the journoy I busied myself making
ber comfortable; rolled up my elegant new
• overcoat to make her a footstool, and sat ia
tha draught of the door so as to protect hor,
, and tried in numerous ways to be attentive,
chiH.-klii.c-.at the thought of how I would
forestall Morrall I
When wo arrived at the hall I busied myself in seeing about her trunks, and was
pleased to soo how unostentatious was the
littlo box, studded with brass nails, that
served as a casket for her numerous Paris*
ian toilets, so dlfforont from the Saratogas
that most ladies owned.
Almost at the samo instant there was a
rush of the hoBpltablo Knelford party, hostess, guests and all, out to welcome us, and
I was borne in, momentarily losing sight of
my dulclnea as I entered.
"Hero's your room, Egerton, all ready,"
cried Loonie, "but we didn't expect you un*
til to-morrow,"

But tlicy aro by no means uny Indication of real feeling, and do not possess

Occasionally my sympathy with tlio chnrno*

AN INDIAN LEGEND.
Mount Desert Islnnd tbe North American
Garden of Eden.
The early Indian tribes who inhabited
Mount Desert Island believed, aooording to
tho Lewiston (Me.) Journal, that tho Garden of Eden was situated at that spot, and
according to their legends, when tho white
man gave tho name of Eden to one port of
tho island, it was only coming to Its own
again. Strange as it may seem, tbo prime*
val father of tho Maine red man was a youth
with golden hair and eyea like tho hazel-
berry, tall and of great beauty. The Eve
who camo to bim just when bis loneliness
wns getting insupportable flrst appeared
coming through tho clouds. Hor flrst exclamation at seeing him was the Indian for
"Oh I dear."
Bho at onco out oft his golden locks and
began to weave them into a strong conl,
growing larger os sho proceeded, At a sug-
gcctlon from Monlcho, a god of evil designs,
tlio man took the cord from her and bound
hor with it, when sho ceased growing but
did not stop working. The neit thing she
did was to bend down a tall, green stalk noar
her and gather from it lta golden seeds,
wliich sho mado into bread, being thus the
discoverer of Indian corn. Tho couple,
after teaching tholr children how to raise
anil ubo tbls grain, wore translated to the
conBtellation of Btars known as tho sickle,
whence thoy still watoh over their earthly
good men to promote sound log-slutum ii
Parliament. \
People sometimes talk as if tighluig foi
one's country wore tho only way or serving
hor. Suroly thatistuklug a very one-sided
viow of a nation's interests. All work well
douo, all Borvlco in lifting up lho lives of
others to a higher level, "All we Intra
wished or hoped or dreamed or good,"
forms the real treasury of national-rival-
ness. I havo no wish to disparage the usefulness, tho necessity, of the army and the
polico forco i but civilization owes quite aa
much to tliat great host of sllout, busy
workors, of whom at least half nro womon,
through whoso labors alono there is any
thing worth preserving, as to tho army anj
tho police force for preserving it.
Charming Fishers of lien*
Recently thoro was a gathering of young
married couples In Louisville and tho conversation turnod ou tho manner in which
tho wIvob had secured their husbands. Ono
had paved tho way to tho altar by making a
faco at tho fated ono becauso she thought bo
had stored at hor impudently. He admired
hormcttlo, and sought an introduction. Another made tho acquaintance- of tho mun
who is now hor husband by accidentally
sousing him with a pan of dishwater, wlileh
sho tossed out of tbo kitchen window into
on alloy just In timo to catch him as ho was
passing. Tho ono, howovor, that was voted
to bo tho most novel was tho experience of
a young man connected with the municipal
government. The latter was in the habit of
passing, on his way home, the rosidonco of
tho young lady who is now his better halt,
and ono ovonlng, out of a spirit of mischief,
sho "accidentally on purposo" turnod tho
hoso on him. Ho faced about, blushed violently and stammored a '■ thank you " in re*

moment ho know ho was fated.

Nature's Own Cosmetie.
A New York woman writes to the Commercial Advertiser congratulating Northern
girls that they have at least awakened to
tho use of watermelon juice as a cosmetic.
Thetr sisters ln the South have for generations, Bhe adds, beautified their complexions by the aid of tho melon, "After a |
long drive, a sail or any summer outing
nothing ls so soothing te tho faco and bands
as the water from both the pulp aud rind.
Tho first, crushed by dainty hands and
rubbed on the faoe, takes off all sunburn,
whilo tho application of tho cool white pulp
noxt te tho red'meat' removes tho 'stickiness' and gives a softness to tho skin of
tho melon bather that oan bo obtained from
nothing else. This is nature's own cosmetic." '

A list of the discoveries ot chemical elements in olovon years (1877-1687) has boon

A German named Frank Kooler waa

days ago as he had heen acting iu a
manner that indicated insanity. Dr.
Fugan and Dr. Walker examined

in the province have conspired to tako

It was reported that the str. Gladys

it is said, eannot develop all tho power
they represent, but they have not got
ioto working order yet, but probably
will in a fow days.

The special school tax case came bo-
fore tho full court at Victoria yostor.
day morning. This was an appeal
from tho decision of the chief justico
in favor of tlio attorney general, authorising tho collection of tho special
tax imposed ou the cities at the Inst
session of the legislature, The point
which the court waa aiked to decide
was a constitutional one, viz,, whether
the legislature hud tho power to impose sueh a tax, Thoir lordships hold
that they could not consider that qucn-
thm and dismissed tho appeal accordingly. Tlie matter, ib is understood,
will be brought before the divisional
oourt on a genenl appeal.

Tlio department of the iiitoiior has

The British Columbia Gazette contains nlroady no less than fifteen private bill notices for tho incorporation
or granting of certain privileges to projected or existing enterprises aud associations throughout the provinco.
Of more particular intorest to our
readers, nru the following: An .application by the Fraser Biver Gold Gravel's Syndicate (Ld.) for certain exclusive privileges nt Maplo Flat. Notico
of application of incorporation of the
British Columbia Mills, Timber nnd
Trading Company, which will embrace
the Royal City Pinning Milla of this
ciiy. There is also tm application for
tho incorporation of tho Westminster

M. Herring of this city that they will
npply for an net to incorporate a company "to construct, operate nud maintain a system of electric lighting and

TluitiliH lor llie C'omplluienl,   '
Very unwittingly and very unintentionally, Truth payB Tin; Colombian
n vory high compliment this morning.
It says: "An Englishman writes to a
relativo in this city: Thank you very
much for Truth. * * * It is superior to Tnn Columbian in nil respects, as the latter contains too many
gossipy paragraphs tu be of interest to
people outside (he neighborhood in which
it is printed," Thanks, nwfully, ZYl'tVi,'
and the abovo is perfectly correct.
Till' Colum ni ax strives to shine as au
interesting local paper, nnd it succeeds, as your English friend admits,
Thb Columbian is tilled with important local aud provincial news every
day, uud not with clipped articles from
American journals; it is prepared
specially for local renders, uut for circulation in England ns a daily magazine. We aim to please the homo demand- not tho foroign, nnd that is ex*
notly where Truth falls, and where its
torch burns very dim and unsatisfactorily, l.tt Truth continuo to cater
to the journalistic vacuum in England
which the London Times, Standard,
■Be/to, Star, Pall Mall Gazelle, and half
a thousand othor papors aro unable to
fill, and Thu Columbian will not enter
tho slightest objection, but will continue, ns in tlio past, to print a re*
Bpectablo homo journal, fur homo
renders, which is all tho glory we want.
Another Eviction.
A lndy of quality, ".v'ieh 'er name
it is Snirey," and Motualfo moreover,
is fond of ceffec, nnd sho likes it "'ot"
and sho nlso likes it strong. Mrs.
Sairey has ii way of making "the cup
thut cheers" so strong that the latter
half of thnt couplet would be a terrible
falsehood if it were uttered in reference lu her coffee. Mrs. Motcalfo felt
Inst night thnt a good strong cup of Java
or mocha with ndnBh of "morning glory"
iu it would not only mnko u "night-
cup" of everlasting fitnoss, but be a
graceful closing exercise to tho labors
oftho day. Unfortunately tho best laid
Bchcmca of women and men often fail to
connect, nnd instead of tho decoction
described nbovo, tho nightcap developed into a cup of good atrong "rod oyo"
with a dash of coffee in it. Tho re*
suit of this lnmentablo mixing of
liquors must huvo been apparent to
overy well regulated mind, but Sairey
drank cup nfter cup and still called
for moro, until nil the stars in tlio fir-
uiuuent danced Iriah jigs nnd highland
llings beforo her. She finally got up
nnd at onco felt that a great aud glorious destiny awaited her. Slio hud to
do something i*rcat that very niglit,
or perish m the attempt. Sho went
over ton friend's house uud deiunnded
admittance; refused, she forced hor
wuy in nnd took forcible possession
und kept it iu maudlin majesly until
the arrival of the police, who had so
much respect for her that they carried
her all ttio wny to iho police illation
and would not allow her to walk u Etep
i rf the way (she couldn't). This morning Mrs. Motculfe wns taxed ono dollar for tho trip to tho station, two dollars for hotel accoinmodationandattetid-
nnco, and fivo dollars subscription to
the municipal fund. Sho pnid without
a murmur.
Onr urlll-Miicil.
Publio attention has beon oncu moro
attracted to thnt venerable monument
of neglect nnd decay, tho drill-shed,
Tho building is n perfect disgrace to
Westminster, nud u moro unsightly,
tumble-down ruin docs uot exist in
the province. Tlio front entrance is
plastered with play bills innumerable,
of nil colors nnd descriptions; tho windows nro partially boarded up, and
tho iron work is deeply encrusted with
the rust of years. Long streaks of
black furrow the remains of whitewash where the atreama hnvo trickled
down during tho rainy seaton; nnd
whon the rnin is fulling if ono wero to
stand insido the shed ho would hear
tho dull, monotonous drop, drop, drop,
of water fulling on the floor nt various
partn of tho building. Thero nro
planks out horo nnd thore, and a dank
fungus growth hns seized tho inside of
the timber and grows in Inrgo knots
and bunches, emitting a dull, heavy,
disagreeable odor. Unless for the
squeaking of tho fragment of gate
hanging on the poBtorn by onu hinge
nnd idly flapping in the wind, or perhaps tho Bourry of a hnnd of ruts ncross
tha stage, tho silence of death reigns fn
nnd around the building. It would bo
an excellent plnco for u man of morbid
mind to retire nnd compose n funeral
oration; it certainly offers belter inducements to suoh genuises tlian uny
first class cemetery. Once, tho building mny huvo boon a haudsrimo structure, but even tradition hns lost hold
of an remote a tale. The building is
looked upou with feelings of only disgust nud nvorsinn hy every citizen in
town, nnd strnngors exprosB astonishment that such n woe-begono architectural blemish is permitted to remain in
the midst of ao many fine now buildings. Every year this state of affairs
is becoming worse, and if something is
not Boon done thoro will bo a terrible
catastrophe to chronicle, probably that
tho roof loaded down with some tons
ot damp moss fell in ou tho company
drilling below and killed every man of
them. Tiio mon don't caro to turn out
to drill in such n disreputable old barn,
nnd the idea is provalent among thom
tbat tho government doesn't caro anything nbout them, or whether they
drill or not; and so the military companies in town arc gmdunlly falling
away nnd will shortly conso to exist.
Thero is plenty of tirst-rnte material
for a crack artillery or rifle corps, but
when ono goes and has a look at the
drill shed he cannot be surprised that
tho young men prefer to stay away and
spend thoir timo in othor ways. A
fow hundred dollars cxponded on tho
remains of the drill shed would still
mnke it u comfortable onough place to
drill nnd meet in. Until this is done
military matters will languish in New
