IJLOODV PK11IT IN U1UZ1L
Nuw Yoiik, Doc. 10.—The steam*
ship Horrox arrivod to-day from Brazil. Slio left Rio do Janeiro on Nov,
23rd, and was at Snntes when the re*
volution occurred. Tho inhabitants
wero astonishod, Oapt. Henning and
first Officer Black say, and showed a
disposition to resist, but the revolutionists! had bo pin^eetly planned their
movements in the coast cities that thii
wasimpoisiblo. In tho interior provinces
it was different. The populace refused
to poacoably uccopt the new govern*
ment, and many bloody conflicts occurred which the provisional government kept from the outside world. The
worst wns iu the provinco of Ba-
hiu, whero a bnttle occurred and up.
warda of livo hundred Uvea were lust.
Thu re woro many other conflicts iu
arious part* of the republic during
tho first two weeks succeeding thu re*
volt, with less of lifo, but the new government troopa overpowered tho uprisings as tho people were poorly
armed fur resistance. A Inrge element
of the imperial navy attempted to resist, but found that tho war vessels
had heen disabled in advance, and tho
1 uflicera wore tikon to an island
noar Kh> de Jaueiru and shot dead.
YVhcu tho Horrox sailed everything
was reported peaceful, but much discontent was manifested. The govern-
mci.t inspects all cipher despatches.
TUB OOWAK MY8TE11V.
Washinoton, D. C, Deo. 16. -Tlm
rumiiius of Frank B. McUowan, of
Philadelphia, who was fouud dead in
his room lu.ro yestorday, wero taken to
Philadelphia ou the early train lu day,
accompanied by hia nephew-, Messrs.
tiowan and Hood, and Supt. Linden,
of tho Piukerton force, Nothing further cnu bo learned as to his death,
and tho general impression is that it
was either a deliberate suicide ur accident. Hia relatives nud friends nre
inclined to the latter theory, which is
confirmed by tho fact that thu akin w
hair on the side uf the head, whero tho
bullet entered, was nut acnioliud. This
thoy believe dues away with the theory
uf suicide, aa thoy claim that if suicide
was intended the pistul would have
beeu held so oloio that scorching would
have followed. This theory seems
plausible. Supt. Linden, whu has boen
n life-long friend of tho deceaied, cumo
hero in tno firm belief that murder and
not suicide had caused l luwiin's death.
Hn carefully wont over the whole
ground, and reluctantly gave up the
murder theory, and favored thu uno uf
nro id en tal death. Ho is firm in his
belief that it was not a osse of suicide,
He said (t.nvan was tuo methodical in
habit tu commit suicide without mak*
lug any.part of the preparation known,
ur leaving an explanatory letter.

Since tho wreck of the Idaho, the
C. P. N. steamer Maude has been
gaged iu making trips to the branded
vessels, with a view uf saving us much
of the carj-o and machinery as possible,
She made sevorul (rips down to the
wreck and a considorablo quantity of
uf material was landed. In order to
■ help matters ahead, tho customs au
thurities here did not hamper tho
boat with uny unnecessary restrictions,
as thoy wished to help tho owners of
the unfortunato vessel in every way
possible, Tbe wreckage was landed
at Spratt'a wharf, and tho customs
people informed that all goods, etc.,
had been transferred from the Maude
to ths wharf. Tho Maude left on
Wednesday morning for Departure
hay for coal, returning yesterday.
From information received Customs
Oflicer Hunter wont on board on ber
return with coal, and a large quantity
of goods was found ou the steamer
which hud omo from the wrecked
Idaho. The higher authorities wore
informed, and tlio result was that thu
Maude wan seized for violation of the
laws of tho customs. Tho C. P. N.
company, however, desired to use the
vessel, and by the consent of the cus<
toms authorities she was released,
bonds for hur having been put up.
Tho.ownois of the vessel (the C. P.*N,
Co.) do nut kuow anything nbout the
alleged violation oftho enstumsregulations. Tho case will be further enquired into nt nn early dale, when all
the facta will bo mado public. —■■Friday's
Times,
A ('mul Indian Ulcn.
Ou Friday morning last, Dec. C, at
uno o'clock, saj'B the Nanaimo Free
Press, thoro died at tho Nanaimo camp
au Indian named "John Wesley."
Wesley has boen known for many
yoars by thoao acquainted with the religious character of these peoplo as one
uf the most sober and sterling, one of
tho must upright and devoted uf nil
those who have identified themselves
with the Nanaimo Indian Mission of
tlm FJel 1)0(1 ist Church. The funeral
service was cunducted by tho Rov.
Joseph Mall, at oue u'eluck un ttio following Subbaili.
The following arc Wesley's last words
addressod tu Mian Lawrence and a few
of his friends who were then present
"My dear friends I want to say a few
words tu you. When I came into this
world I brought nothing with me and
uow 1 nm going to leave this world
and 1 cannot take anything wtth me."
Then addrosstni' himself to his family
hu aaid, "1 do nut want tn bo buried
in tho old heathen way; I want to bo
buried like tho Christian peoplo.
When I die 1 want tho whito ladles
who used to visit uto whon I was well
and mud to sing and pray in my house,
to como tu my luuirul and to sing all
the way from the church to the graveyard. 1 want ten ladies to come.
Lulies do nut make my heart sorry by
not coming; and 1 want Mr. Hall to
ennui and bury 1110. My doar family I
do not want you tu cry nt my funeral,
either iu tho house or at the grave*
{'aid. But when you come baok to the
iouso aflcr I am laid in the gravo then
you can cry; 1 send my love to Mr.
Tato, ho is my good brother, 1 send
my lovo also to Capt, John, Big Jim,
nnd all the Chilliwack people,"
Wesley's last wish was observed,
and though the weather wub cold and
stormy, ten whitu Indies wlui take a
great interest in the work uf the mission, followed the remains and led the
singing all tho way from the mission
church to tho gravo, where all that
was mortal of Wesley was consigned
to its last resting place, and the burial
service of the Methodist church was
read.
Sinco the death of his daughter,
Mrs. Hoyoo, a fow days ago, "Rev. Dr.
Williams of tho Methodist Church,

party of exiles having hesitated, contrary to orders, in regard to the withdrawal <f a petition, wero attacked by
tho police and soldiers. Six were shot
dead, including a yonng woman, and
nine wen wounded. The pretext forthe
attack was that the petition was of a re-
belious character. A courtmartial condemned three of the survivors to death,
and the oth. rs to long terms of iinpris
onment. Ono of the wounded wss carried to the gallows on his bed, When
the noose had been adjusted the bed was
removed. The friends of the victims declare this to be tho worst cost la Siberian
records.
nitOWNINO'B FUNERAL.
Venice, Dec. 16.—The funeral of
the late Robert Browning, the poet,
occurred at three o'olook to-day. The
services were held in the great hall
Bezzonicu. All the nobles of Venice
were preaent, and lovely wreaths almost buried the coffin. The funeral
barge was splendidly decorated, and
was towed by a steamer of the royal
navy. The munieipal guards and a
large detachment of the firemen of
Venice acted as a guard of honor, and
members of the family snd many
friends of tho deceased occupied separate gondolas. The remains were deposited in the central chapel of the
cemetery of Saint Michael. They will
leave Venice on Tuesday next and will
be buried at Westminster Abbey in
London.

BAPTIST CHURCH.
At the Baptist church last evening
the Rev. Thos. Baldwin preached from
John, 19 oh. 30 v., "When Josua
therefore had received the vinegar, He
-aid, 'it is finished,' and He bowed Hii
head, and gave up the ghost." Tho
reverend gentleman said: This morning I spoke to the people on the samo
subject, "Finished redemption," having the pathetic side untouched. Wo
noticed it finished as far as it expiated
thu demands uf divine justico on the
uno hand, and uu die other tho neces*
siiies uf humanity, growing uut of mail's
revolt from Grid, To-night we tako
up tho thoughts in addition; nothing
is more clear in history than thut man
should receive this method of grace.
We should do as Jesus did, be humble
and part with selfishness and pride.
Our very reception of this salvation
should be a sort of tangible reflection
of the great love and spirit of Christ
himself. How unholy and unchristian
is that one who plans and schemes for
his own personal advancement to the
detriment of others. Tho fatherhood
of God is shown without fault either in
tbe designs behind or the issues beyond. And there will be broken at our
feet suoh evidences that will bear
eternal witness of the one great
fact, that God tho judge of ail tho
earth hu done right beyond question,
and that when Jesus Christ cornea on
earth and finishes tho work of redemption it is with the purposo of glory to
God and man's good. How aro you
that are unsaved dealing - with the
finished redemption? Who should
ory for mercy but tho condemned? yoa
ought to receive this provision made.
for you by Jesus. You should say, 1
will arise and go to my Fathor, and oall
on Jesus' name, and there is enough
in that name to set you right. What
will you do? The reverend gentleman
concluded with a very earnest appeal
to bis hearers to seok the Saviour.

Editor Columbian—Sir;—There appeared in The Columbus's issue of last
Friday a communication re the city audi:
over the notn de plume "Veritas," I de-
sire that your numerous readers sh uid
not he led to believo (at no doubt it was
bo intended) that the writer of last Friday's article and the letters published iu
your paper ob the 22nd and 23rd of No*
vember are one and the a-me "Veritas."
I would most respect ully suggest to the
communicator of the 13th inst., to either
write boldly over bis real name, adopt
some other, or style himself "Veritas the
Second."    Sincerely yours,
Veritas the First.
A rertlaaat Qneitlea.
Editor Columbian — Sir:—I notice
with extreme regret that the Odd Fellows
havo rented a room in their beautiful
building on Columbia street for a saloon,
and that application is beln,j made for a
license. To regret is added surprise, as
it li well known that the order, as a
whole, is opposed to the liquor business
and does not generally admit saloonkeepers to its ranks, There seams to b:
a ghastly inconsistency in the idea of a
benevolent order that has done noble
work in caring for widows and orphans,
and tli >t hu under its charge the resting-
place of the doad, allowing part of its
building to be used for saloo 1 purposes.
It is tone hoped that, tor the credit of
the order and the good of the community, the license applied for may be refused. Yours,

Electric LlRhl.
Editor Columbian—Sin—By a notice
in Truth a scheme is under consideration
to have our city furnished with electrio
light by a company of two or mon of our
citizens.    Now, at present, the city is
{laying about $200 per month for gas, and
t seems to me that this oity might ns
well own her electric light machinery
herself, and not have thu system controlled by a company any more than our
water works; and in this cue Westmin*
ster would reap the benefit of the outlay,
as I have been Informed (if it ho true)
that the machinery used hore in the gas
worka can be utilized for tho eleotrio
light process with very little expense.
Since ft is in the agreement that st tho
expiration of five years from the time the
gas works were completed the city might
take them over at tbo first valuation, if
my memory serves mo right, it is, la my
opinion, a very good investment for the
corporation to mate in two years more,
I would, therefore, consider it the duty
of the city to object to any company obtaining a franchise for electric light.

The town of Port Arthur has at last
got a settlement of its claim against
the 0. P, R, for taxes, the matter hav*
ing been in dispute for years. A bailiff, at the initanoe of the city tax collector, recently seized a locomotive
and seventeen ean, the property of the
company, for the delinquent taxes,
and communicated the faet to General
Superintendent Whyte, at Winnipeg.
The superintendent submitted a letter
to the oouncil Thurday night, enclosing
a cheque for full taxes due, without
interest, the amount being $11,807.
The question of interest is to be submitted for settlement. The seised
goods were releued tha next day and

BT. ANDREWS CHURCH.
Rev. Thos. Scouler preached last
night in the Presbyterian church from
the following text: Roman* 0 c. 21 v.
—"When ye were the servants of sin,
what fruit had ye in those things
whereof ye aro now uhamod?"—and
said: The apostle constantly reminds
hia converts of their former condition
when they were in their impenitence
and sin and unbelief. All the views
that are eiven of the former condition
of the believer show that at one time
he waB without God and without hope
in tho world. The fruit of such a life
is only shame and death. Were there
no future punishment of such n courso,
it would be found even now that the
ways of the transgressor are hard. All
the misery and woes of this present
life are the offspring of Bin. It was
sin that withered tho blossom of Eden
and 'that bluted nil man's hopes uf
hsppineu ever since. Betwoen sin
and suffering there is a present aa woll
u a futuro connection, and in apite of
all the efforts whioh the sinner makes
to stifle the voice of conscience that
inward monitor must be heard, and the
clamors of a guilty conscience. This
is the hell which many are carrying
about with them on earth. This is
the consuming fire, it is the fire that
shall never be quenched. It is this that
shall cause the sinner to exclaim, "Send
me a drop of water to cool n?y burning
tongue. A state of sin is the condition
of all men by nature. What is the
present condition of believen? They
are free from sin, they havo become
servants unto God, they have their
fruits unto holiness, and the end is
everlasting life. When we say that
believers are free from sin, it is not in
the sense of perfection. There ia no
such thing as perfection attained in
this life. That is reserved for the future state. What we are to learn from
this vorso is that the present state of a
child of God is one of comparative
holiness. They have been made free
from sin in a sense, free from the guilt
of sin, freo from the reigning power of
sin. They have been purged from an
evil conscience by tho blood of Christ,
whieh brings poaco to the soul, and
thus they are justified. Their present
state when compared with their
former is one uf holiness. This purpose of God was formed from all
eternity, that his peoplo should be
made holy. All God's providential
dealings with His people are for thia
Eurpose, tbat they might be made
oly. It would be difficult to account
for God's people being called upon to
suffer to muoh in this life, did we not
read: "He shall sit u a refiner and
purifier of ailver." Thus we see that
believers are aow made free from sin
and have their fruit unto holiness. If
there is one evidence stronger than
another that we are the children of
God, it is this, that we hate sin and
that we desire to be freed from it. The
believer doos woll to remember what
he was boforo boing set free from sin,
to remember the time when tho struggle between light and darkness took
place. With many this was a time
wbon God and Satan seemed to straggle for the mastery. It was a momentous timo, which can novor be forgotten.
But how important that period may
have been, it is not to bo compared
with the end of that life whioh waa
then begun. A new life wu then infused into the soul: tho ond is life
ovorksting. The beginnings uf a work
of grace in tho soul are important-
most important, for wo have the assurance that whon God begins such a
work He shall carry it on unto the day
of Josus Christ; but the end is eternal
life. That word everluting life hll
heights which oanuot be scaled, depths
that cannot be fathomed. An apostle
speaks of it in these words; "Eye
bath not seen, nor ear heard, neither
hath it entered into tho heart of man
to oonceive, the things which God hath
prepared for them that love Him." Is
this your hope? We must oome into
possession, at leut in its beginnings,
of this life hero, if we would hope to
enter upon life everlasting hereafter.
If you have faith, be it ever so small,
cherish it. Itis not the degreo of
your faith whioh shall uve you, but
Ohriit. ^^^^^

Tni. English press declares Mr.
(.ioorgo R. Parkin lo lie tlio embodiment of   tho   Imperial   Federation
idea,    Canadian by birth, und English by  education, ho is pronounced
a typical citizen bf tlie empire.  His
position in the Federation League is
unique.   Lords Brassey and Koso-
bcrv, as well is others, lmve   stayed
in the colonies, but Mr. Parkin hus
stumped them in the interests of
Imperial Federation,    We all remember his visit to this coast, but
sincq that time he has been to Australia, and   was   quito   recently in
England.    Interviewed   upon   tho
suhject of which ho is a master, he
declared that the feeling in favor of
Australian unity is growing, but at
thosamo timo  stated   that   allowance'! had to bo made owing to the
great   personality   of  Sir  Henry
Parkes, and   tho jealousies  of the
Australian  colonies.     Antipodean
*    politics, ho   declared, are  remarkably complicated, and the spirit of
one   colony    is    quito    different
from    tho   spirit    of   its neigh-
• bor.   At present there is no such
political entity as Australia, and,
'therefore, Mr. Parkin argues, itis
[ necessary  to  follow    Sir   Henry
I Parkes' lead and secure the federa-
_ tion °f the Australian colonies pre-
| limihary to moving  in  the  wider
| scheme of Imperial Federation. The
•■   young  Australian  nationalists are
'!   declared to be a very small minority.
Whilst in Melbourne Mr. Parkin
■was met by the demand for him to
produce a scheme, and rebuked the
Age by replying that there had been
two grc.it unifications in Europo in
our own time, that of Italy and that
of  Germany, yet  neither  Oarow,
Mazzini nor   Bismarck   wero   pro-
pared tit tho outset with a cut-and*
dried plan.   The cases of tlie United
States and our own Dominion  were
also instanced.   A great dread and
dislike of foreign complications is
very prevalent in Australia, and a
New South Wales politioan boldly
declared that federation could only
como  when   the   mother  country
pledged hersolf to a policy of nonintervention in European continental affairs.   On thu  other  hand, a
certain olass of people   in   England
are always ready to declare the colonies would for ever be causing troublo by embroiling themselves  with
France, China, or somo other power.
Mr. Parkin thinks   neither ef these
views to   bo   correct, but imagines
that, with more  intimate relations
betweon England and her colonies,
the policy of tho mother country
would practically cease to bo continental and  become  colonial.   In
Australia thero are two patriotisms,
one for a united Australia, the other
for the British empire.   Tho one is
not necessarily   incompatible   with
the other, but there is a danger tbat
the former may kill the latter, and
to prevent this is lhe object of Imperial Federationists at   tho   Antipodes.  	
Ax American Pacific coast cotemporary says : "The secretary of tho
interior in his annual report calls at*
toutiou to tho subject of forest preservation. It is stated that fires in
tho timber regions of the Western
and Pacific coast states and territories have destroyed more trees during tho past summer than have been
lost by depredation from the lirst
settlement down to the present time.
A great portion of these forests exist
in thn neighborhood of tho arid rontons. They crown tbo mountains,
beneath which lie the nrid plains,
and aro storehouses of moisturo for
purposes of irrigation. These tim
• ber lands cunnot bo acquired by individuals under either thohomestead,
desert-hind or tinibnr-cultui'O laws,
This does not ulways prevent wholesale destruction of tlto trees by lumbermen, while iu the absence of
any effective furoat supervision by
tho government no private owner
hns any interest in preventing depredation or tires. The secretary of
tho interior recommends that con-
gross should appoint a commission
to consider the subject of the publio timber lands, with a viow of finding the beat method of management,
preserving and disposing of them.
Some system is necessary whioh will
effect the doublo purpose of preserving and utilizing tho forests. Cli-
' inatic considerations demand that the
mountains should not bo denuded of
thoir covering of vegetatian by any
reckless process, while the needs of
the community suggest that some
means should be provided by which
lumbermen may thin out the growth
for commercial purposes." From
tho foregoing it would appeur that
our neighbors v/ere alive to the necessity of taking somo sensiblo steps,
and doing so speedily, for the preservation of their forests from wholesale, reckless devastation. We hnve
repeatedly called attention to the
urgency that exists in this province
for specific and effective legislation
on thii subject. Every summer season furnishes additional evidence of
tho strongest kind, why immediate
itop* should bo taken for intelligently and surely conserving our forest
wealth, There oan be no doubt that
an absolutely criminal mite is go
ing oii at presont that could bo prevented—which wc nro bound to pro-
vent, if possible. We hope to seo
our legislators take this mattor up
at the coming session of the provincial parliament, and provido laws
nnd tho machinery for their enforcement that will go far towards pre
serving our noble forest hcritago
from careless and criminal waste.
Duiuxc. tho dredging operations
iiowgoingonatthoporLofSantandor,
Spain, says au exchange, tho well-
preserved remains of a war ship
were encountered at tho entrance to
the harbor, partly buried in sand
and mud, which must havo gone
down in tbat spot four centuries
ago, A3 tho dredges could not remove tho old hull, tho Spanish government orderod it to bo blown up,
and to employ divers for saving
what could be saved. Tho work has
turned out a very profitable ono, and
gnat caro is consequently displayed.
Tho vessel dates probably from the
ond of tho fifteenth or the beginning
of tho sixteenth century. Guns and
other equipments raised show the
united coats-of-arms of Castillo and
Alfagon, and some bear the scroll of
.lsa.lv, lln lu Catolica, others tho
crowned F of Ferdinand tho Catho
lie. As among tho numerous arms
found on board thero aro many of
Italian or French origin, and the
vessel appears to have served as a
transport, it is generally supposed
that sho belonged to the expedition
of Gonzalo do Cordoba against Naples, and sho foundered on her return from Italy, laden with trophies
nnd plunder, on entering the port of
KautamiiT. This surmise is supported by tho fact that among tho
coin saved thero nre, besides Spanish
coinage of tho timo of tho Catholic
kings, numerous coins with tho head
of Charles VIII. of France, and the
various Italian states of the time.
Since tho discovery was made, the
diving and saving operations are
carried on with groat energy, as it is
hoped to meet with valuable finds
from an expedition which was particularly rich in plunder.

VEtendard quotes Cardinal Si-

of tho order of Jesuits: thoy havo
none; when the order was abolished
their properties returned to tho

I understand thut tho British government does not rocognizo the

of view; but wo have ofton arranged
similar questions with the British
government by an amicable compromise.*1 Yet VEtendard persists in
charging tho British crown with
stealing property from the Jesuits.

A novel method of determining
tho temperature of the nir at great
heights has been proposed by a German physicist, and is to be adopted
by the Berlin Society for ballooning.
Small balloons aro sont up at night,
each provided with a thermometer
arranged to givo flashes of light by
the closing of an electric circuit
when certain temperatures are
roached. A so-culled "photo-thodo-
lito is affected by the light, and
gives a photographic record of the
torn pera tu res, while tho corresponding altitudes nro indicated in a mechanical way. A more accurate
idea of tho rate of decrease of temperature with height is expected
from this method.
A rareaffoctiou known asthe "fish*
scale disease" has been shown at a
Berlin institution by Prof. Olshau-
sen. The patient, a newly-born
boy, has the whole white epidermis
thickened into scales, which give a
rough sound when the &\m is
stroked, and peel .off like fish-scales
when scratched. The child has eyelids und eye-lashes, but no eyes,
The mother has given birth to three
children having this romarkablo
disease, and to several free from it ■
and a woman of Miouna had livo
sons who wero affected, and threo
daughters who were not. In the

who were all victims of the disease,
gained considerable notoriety by
exhibiting themselves as "porcupino

WINTER WHEAT.
''.Muoh brood Is growing in the winter's night."
—Swedish Proverb. ■,
Sinoo all the wheat Is blddoa by tho snow,
Us greenness is no more a sweet surprise,
Nor shull we see again the young blades rise,
And wavo with every wind's breath to and fro.
How cruel ia tho fate that wills lt so I
And cruder still the wintry blight that Ilea
On lovely lips and innocent doar eyea
Tint death has stricken. How ean we forego
Our passionate outcrying?    Wrong, oh, wrong
To break tho bud before its perfect flower,
Tj stop the music in tho middle song,
And bring tho dark In morning's happy hour I
Wuutrecompense,Obitter Life, ln thee
Whose Discord so outrages Harmony!"
*i
Hut wait till time is ripe; a vernal air ■
Across tho world of loo blows warm and
sweet;
Tho snow-wreaths molt; and lot the tender
wheat,
Alive, unhurt, UDspringlng everywhere!
All turough tho bitter winter's blank despair,
Through the wild days ot tossing ball and
sleot,
And frozen nights whoso glittering stars re*
peat
Tho obangoloss truth of God's eternal caro,
Us lifo was growing! Restless soul, be still,
And brood upon the moaning of these things,
And beat no mon with   madly fluttering
wings
.\r;a[nst tho steadfast, omnipresent wlll-
"Much broad ls growing la the winter's
night,"
And outer darkness yields tho Inner light.

THB FAMILY JEWELS.
Having for High Stakes and Winning an Old Maid.
It was a oloar. still evening in October.
Thero hud been a frost tbe night before,
uiul Miss Myra Gaynor had left her housework to tako caro of itself since noon,
, while sho had gono nutting on Bald Mount-
Ian.
Mary. Gabriel remembered all this, and
prompt! v stepped into tlio breach.

"I'm always pleased to bo of servico to llie
ladies.1'
And so this middle-aged Cupid and Psycho
disappeared into the hen-house, Willi a
candle; and after an absence that appeared
perfectly unaccountable to George, who
stilt sat there polishing off tho gate-pin, reappeared Willi tho cackling prey in oafo
custody.
"Lot mo wring their nccka for you, darling," said Gabriel, spasmodically.
"Oh, nevermind, dear," chirped Joanna;
but slio rushed off to her own room, nevertheless, noarly upsetting Mrs. Fetherbee on
the stairs.
•'Ehi" said Georgo,
"Yes," said Gabriel, changing from ono
foot to tho other as ho stood holding tlio
basket of chickens, "she's promised to bo
Mrs. Gabe Gaynor."
"Alnt this rather sudden?" said George,
staring with all his oyes.
"Such things always happen suddon. at
tho last," said Gabriel, composedly,
"Won't you tnako rather an elderly pall'
o' turtle-doves}" aaid tho audacious Georgo,
■ "That aint nobody's business but our
own," said Gabriel. "Jest fetch mo an axe,
George, there's a good fellow. I 'low it's
easier to chop off thoso fowls' hoods than to
wring their necks,"
Mrs. Fothcrbeo smiled whon Bho heard
tho nows. 'Tin not sorry," said sho. "Joanna has always boen atrial in tho family,
but there seemed no way of getting rid of
her."
"Gttbo Gaynor must bo an all-fired fool,"
observed George Fothcrbeo. "Why, she's
forty, if she's a day I   And her tongue-"
"Himli, my son," said the gentle mater*
famttiiis.   "It'e all for thabostl"
Desirous though Gabriel was to learn tlio
story or tho family Inheritance, ho judged
it best to ask no questions at present.

tint Notice In Qall.
Thero was ouo culprit in the cage'
this morning, and his crime consisted
of attempting to borrow money from
residents un tho hill, on Saturday,
wherewith to recoup his depleted exchequer. He succeeded in snaring n
few gulls for various amounts within
tho limits of tho "bit" value, and the
polico then gathered him in and provided him a corafortablo home at the
refugees' roost ou Provost st. This
morning hit honor was rather inclined
to bo lenient, and recognized the hard
fortune of the priioner. In view of
these feelings ho remanded the caso
until 3 p. tn., and told the prisoner
that it would be ihe proper and graceful thing to skip in tno interim. Tho
Kriaoner smiled all over and declared
ii intention of acquiescing without
fail, and thanked his honor in tho
heartiest manner. His exit from tho
city was at a 4.22 gait, and it is not
likely that he will return again, Tlio

Went Over the Dank.
Thia aftornoon a teamster driving a
wagon and toam of horsos, belonging
toG. W. Rasuro, attempted to back
the wagon down tho narrow gang plank
loading to Wise's hay dock; -the horses
wero restive and ran the end of tho
wagon over the edge of tho embankment, and before tho driver could whip
thom out of tho difficulty, Iho wholo
outfit wont ovor tho brink into tho
shallow watar below. The horses
mado a terrible splutter for a while,
but tho teamster managed tn jump
clear and got off unharmed. With tho
asaistahoe of u gangway plank borrowed from the wharf, tho horsos woro
quickly got out of their unpleasant
lix, nnd though badly frightened, none
the worso for their plunge. The wagon
waa hauled out by tho crowd, and
Btrango to say not a bit of damage was
dono, although it was a very narrow
escape both for mnn nud horses.

Thai Steamboat Knee.
In nn intorviow with the officers of
tho steamer Gladys this morning, ib
was learned that there had boen no
race betweon that vessel and tho str,
Delaware, neither had there been a
broom hoisted at the mast head of the
former boat, and the steamers woro
not fifteen miles apart whon the Irving
passed them last Friday on the Delaware's maiden trip, as stated in that
unreliable organ, Truth. This truly
characteristic attempt of tho moribund
Churoh street affair to injure ono of
Westminster's rising enterprises is
nothing moro than might havo been
expected from suoh a sarcastic sheet.
The chief sarcasm in the paper is ita
title; it is really ironical in ita misapplication. The attempt made on Sun*
day morning to injure the character
of a popular and deservedly esteemed
oflicer of one of our river steamers, by
shoving the blame offits own shoulders
on to his, will only servo to increase
the odium in which this pariah of
journalism stands. Thore aro a fow
moro new enterprises in Westminster
whioh Truth might attack and defamo.
As a newspaper Tmih makes thinking
poopio shako their heads; as stove-
kindling, trunk-lining and sholf-covcr-
ingit is pre-eminently a success. In
that exalted sphere it has all the glory,
and nobody envies it a bit.
Mr. A. M. Herring interviewed wns
thla morning by a Columiiian roportor in
regard to tho proposed electric lighting
and motor compnny of which ho is a
prominent mombor. Mr. Herring
utated that nothing could he made public yet as tho company's ptttiia aro
scarcely perfected, but full information
will be given in a few daya. Arc and
incandescent lighting nnd power for
machinery are, howover, tho objects
in viow.
Salmon Fry for Alert Bay.
Mr. M. M, Mowat, caretaker of the
Frasor Rivor Hatchery, left for Victoria this afternoon cit routo for Alert
Bay, taking with him 1,000,000 sock-
oyo ova which will bo hatched out nt
that point und deposited in the waters
of tho Nonib.Qu.sh river. The ova uro
carefully packed in wot moss and cotton, and in such n careful manner that
thoy will not suffer any damage on tho
trip. A portion of Mr. Spencer's cannery at Alert Bay will be fitted up as
a hatchery, and Mr. Mowat will super*
vise the hatching of tho ova aud the
depositing of tho fry in tho river. Ho
expects to return to Westminster on
March 1st, about which dato tho laat
of tho hatching will be ready for the
wator. Mr. Mowat leaves Victoria
to-morrow on tho stonuiship Sardonyx.
Freight fur (lie Hitlnhtiw.
Tho Times says the Union Pacitic
havo mado arrangements for tho steamer Rainbow to proceed to Port Town-
send when Canadian freight, in bond,
to tho amount of 50 tona haa accumulated, and bring it over. As it sometimes takes two weeks for that much
freight to got together, it will be seen
that n groat inconvenience will be
caused to merchants shi pping that wny.
Tho nmount of eastern Oanadian
freight brought in on tho Sound steam-
era, it was learned thia morning, am*
ounts to nbout fifty por cent, of thoir
total freight to this port. From this it
will bo seen to what extent tho trade
of thoso bonts will be interfered with
if the ordor is maintained in force.
Just what tho effect of tho ordor will
be, if it is kept in forco, is hard to
foretell. No doubt ono effect will bo
to make tho American roads givo Victoria bettor rates than beforo ond in
that way more gooda will bo bought in
American markets and lo*s in Canadian.
Forgot It Wns Sundiij-,
Yeaterday morning a blythe nnd
prosperous Langley Prairie rancher
hitched up hia team to the wagon, put
a ltijjof turkeys, eggs, butter aud other
farm produce aboard, aud camo along
forthe royal cily ntn spanking gait,
punctuating tho mellow cadence of his
song with pistol-Hko cracks of tho
whip. Having safely passed tho fords
of tiio Fruser on board tho antediluvian
ark, ihe K, do K., ho cauiu trotting
into town figuring ou good prices for
his wares, mid ho spoko thus with himsolf: "I wonder what in thunder's
up in Westminster to-dny tliat all the
stores nro closed: must bo somebody
of importance dead," Thon he saw
a man ho know, and tho man was
dressed in his go-to-meeting clothes,
"Sny, old man" cried tho rancher,
"what tho dickens is the mattor here
to-day?'1 Tlio mnn paused a second,
took in tlie situation nud snid, "why
you crank, it's Sunday, didn't you
know it?" Tho rancher chewed the
end of his whip and muttered "woll,
I'll bo gaul durncd if I aint tho blnm-
odest :"   Thon ho wont and put
his wagon and team by, nnd took the
matter philosophically by attending
church. The Laugloy Prairie mission
hold would bo a splendid opportunity
for somo of our aspiring young missionaries. Unrivalled iuducoments, no
cannibals, lino climate and moderate
prices fov board.
Miss Essie Till ell.
At tho opera houao thia ovening
Miss Essia Tittell and her talented
company begin a throo nights engagement, commencing with the lino military drama "Lynwood." Of this company tho News j43tieHwer of yestorday
Bays: Another good houae favored the
Eaaio Tittell Co., Inst ovening in tho
Imperial Theatre. "Tho Moonshiners, or the Mountain Waif," was presented, the part of tho "Mountain
Waif" boing takon by tho star actress
of tho combination. As "Sincority"
sho certainly did woll, and performed
nn arduoua as well as difficult task;
nt times it was impossiblo not to feel
that tho part waa overdone. With tho
exception of that remark, nothing adverse could bo said regarding her act*
ing. Sho was vivacious, conscientious
nud attractive in bor role. Misa Lizzio
Lingham us "Bell Trafton," though
not a prominent character, was vory
truo to naturo and as a good-natured
sensiblo cousin would bo hard to boat.

oould got was the upturned canoes,
which woro brought to Seattle. Universal regret ia felt in Seattle ovor the
sad ovont, ns all woro prominent and

The Choral I'nlon Concert.
Whon it was announecd some timo
ago that tho Choral Union of this city
would givo Handel's magnificent oratorio of "Tho Messiah" on Tuesday
evening, Decombor 17th, the music-
loving public was Idled with tho most
delightful anticipations. A look over
the programme makes it safo to say
that these anticipations will suffer no
diminution to-morrow evening. Tho
recitative ia in tho euro of vocalista
whoso famo is known and appreciated
throughout tho province, while the
well known ability ot tho leader and
choir makes it a foregone conclusion
that tho chorus work will bo excellent.
Tho instrumental part of the oratorio
ia to bo givon by two musicians of
inure than local famo, Mrs. Pearson
aud Mr. Morey. Of tho oratorio, "The
Messiah," it may bu said that it is the
most sublime effusion of musical genius tho world over Baw, or perhaps
will over see, ns it is hard for human
mind to imagine moro glorious sounds
than tho mighty strains of Handel ns
thoy roll in their majesty through this
his grandest work, tho chef d'oeuorc of
ull music. Evory sentiment that music
can cxproso in treated with a maator
hand in "The Messiah." Handel has
blended tho sweot spmphonic notes of
Haydn with tho passion of Mozart,
and taken somo of the wild warblings
of Chopin, and with hii own great
harmonious soul bound them with the
bands of genius into this supreme
production, "The Messiah." Evory
one who hns nny tnsto for tho gontlo
muso should go and listen totho rendition of this oratorio on Tuesday
evening Those who hnvo never hoard
it boforo will learn what musio really
ls; those with whom it is nn old favorite will revel onco moro in the delights
of music unsurpassed.
A tioud Com-miiy.
Tho bost audience, in point of numbers, that has nssombled in the opera
houae for somo timo, witnessed tho
performance of Girnrd Leon's Wo 3
Company on Saturday evoning. This
is tho best variety company that hns
held the. boards here in a long timo,
and with fow exceptions nil tho specialty acts woro very good. Tho four
Carlos, staled on tho bills ta bo Parisians, gavo n most interesting musical
entertainment on ull sorts of strange
instruments. One of those consisted
of sticks of macaroni, of different
lonths, sot upright in n table, and
rubbing tho gloved hands downwards
on thorn, producing a plonsnnt flute-
Hkp sound. Tho "Cat symphony," by
Rossini, was inimitably givon by two
members of the Carles family, although
the beauty of tho pieco was greatly
marred by tho bad behavior of several
pBrsonsin the gallery, who Boomed determined lhat no ono in thu houso
should enjoy tho entertainment in
peace if they oould possibly prevent
it. Tho dancing of this talented group
uf comedians waa excellent; nnd tho
rendition of the famous Italian piccolo
ooho on tho violin showed tho powers
of tlio violinist off to great advantage.
The two ohamelons wore really startling in thoir lightning changes, and
gained groat applause. Tho Irish
comedy work was passable, although
intersporsod with some very ancient
"gags." The performing donkeys wore
amusing nnd delighted the juvenile
portion of tho audionco, A gentleman (?) seated at the right aide of tho
houao distinguished himsolf by shouting "rata" in tho middle of a song by
ono of the company. Ho was not
ejected. Takon nil through tho company is a first-class variety ono, and
deserves n full houso evory timo it
plays.
