BlRKBKVILLB,    B.   C,    DeO    24.—
Quite a good feeling prevails in town
to-day ovor the exhibition of a gold
bar, the product of the "Black Jaok"
quartz rock. Mr. Martin, the superintendent of the government test
works, has juat completed a tost by tho
chlorination process. Hvo separate
trials brought the same result, viz:
Ninety per cent of the gold ia saved.

TELBOBAPH COMPANY SOLD,
Nbw Yobk, Deo. 24.—The dimmer*
oial Telegraph Company was sold at
sheriff's sale to-day to John A. Mackay
and Edward W. Pratt, of tho Nevada
Bank, for $165,000.
COWARDLY SMITH.
Loudon, Deo. 24.—The ruffianly
conduct of Jem Smith'a frienda at the
ringside haa disgusted every lover of
fair play in lhe kingdom, and the unjust and cowardly decision of the referee in declaring the fight a draw, instead of giving the stakes to Slavin,
who had hia man whipped from the
start, has added to tho exasperation of
sporting men. One good result has
come from the fight, however, whioh
affords a good deal of consolation to
all men who take an interest in pugilistic matters. Tho status of Smith as
a fighter is as definitely settled as
though ho had won the battlo easily
and fairly, or had been fairly knocked
out, as he certainly would have been
had the fight been permitted to qo on.
AU accounts of the mill agree that
Smith was not in it, and this faet, together with the action of the thugs,
who went to the ringside in his behalf,
to prevent his being whipped, will
render it impossible for him to over
again obtain reputable bucking, while
every pugilist of any reputation will be
abundantly justitied in treating his attempts to arrange a fight with contempt. When the news of the fight
waB received at the Pelican Olub not a ,
man present had a good word to say
for Smith, while every one praised j
Slavin, who had bested the alleged
"champion," and at the same time
held his own against the mob of cutthroats who had surrounded the ring.
It waa immediately proposed to raise
testimonial fund of $1,000 for Slavin
and 9300 of the sum was subscribed by
thoso present within 15 minutes.
DOBS NOT BELIEVE IT.
New Yobk, Deo. 23.—Senor Sau-
vrez, the Spanish vice-consul, is inclined to doubt. tho P«i« durvtahes
concerning an alleged agitation in
Spain in favor of a republic, and states
that he has received no official despatches in regard to them.
A STORMY FASSAOB.
San Franoisoo, Deo. 23.-—The str.
Wilmington, just arrived from Port
Townsend, reports having experienced
a succession of gales from Cape Flattery to Cape Mendocino, blowing at
times with the force of a hurricane
and causing a high, cross sea. She sustained no damage except the staving
in of a few boards ln ihe bulwarks.
THE FIRE KING  AGAIN.
NoRTBTnoY,Vt.Dec.23.—TheKast-
man Machinery Co.'s machine shop

wooden bridge of tho Canadian Paoific

Victoria, Deo. 24.—The by-laws to
assist tho rice, flouring and paper mills
and sugar refinery, passed their second
reading at a special meeting of tho city
couucil last evoning.
At a meeting of the commercial travellers'association held in thoir rooms,
Bastion Square, last evening, D. E.
Brown, of tho Canadian Pacitic Rail*
wuy, aftor tho object of the meeting
had been explained, offered, on behalf
of his road, to meet the views of -tho
association, and placo their wholesale
friends on the coast in a position to
compete with houses ns far east as Can-
moro. After considerable discussion a
vote of thanks was tendered the C. P.
R. and Mr. Brown, and the meeting
adjourned.
The American tuft Discovery found
tho floating wreck of tho steamer
Idaho, whioh slid off the rooks last
Friday, floating down the straits on
Saturday. All the machinery had disappeared and the copper had been removed, and the remnants were not [
worth towing into port She will prove
u dangerous obstruction to navigation
unless measures are taken to beach or
sink the wrock. This is positively the
last ohapter iu tho Idaho case, unless
aomo vessel fouls her and gets badly
damaged.	
In ihe Nlelt of Time.
A young German living In Surrey
hsd the misfortune to havo his leg
broken boiiio days ago. Very little attontion was paid to the wounded limb,
and only when gangrenous symptoms
of a vory serious description began to
display themselves did he and hia
friends deem it expedient to remove
at once to New Westminster. He arrived here lost night and was immediately placed in the care of Dr. Fagan,
who had him removed without delay
to St. Mary's Hospital. A careful
diagnosis of the case resulted in tho
disclosure of the fact that blood poisoning had set in, aud that in the most I
malignant form. Dr. Fagan resolved, I
in view of this alarming discovery, to i
amputate the limb to-day, wliich was
successfully accomplished this afternoon. The amputated limb was clack
and livid with mortification, and had
the boy not beon brought hero just at
this ettigo of the trouble no power on
earth could have saved him. Home
doctoring does not pay; there is nothing like promptly summoning a qualified practitioner.   _
The Smeller Sold*
The World says that valuable property, the smelter, with its machinery
and 30 aores of land attached was sold
nnder tho auctioneer's hammer yos-
tordf*,**   ttt   tho inai-knao of tho Banl
r.
British Columbia which had foreclosed
a mortgage upon It. The building
with machinery is in good condition,
ready to begin work. Mr. Thos. Dunn
was the purchaser at $39,500, The
price is considered very low, and although bidding was brisk nono seemed
particularly anxious to buy, It is understood that Mr. Dunn, with his usual
energy, will set. it in operation soon
and run it to its fullest capacity, in
which case this turn in the tide of tho
fortunes of the smelter will bo of immense benefit to Vancouver.
Buffalo, N.Y., Dec. 23.--Judge
Daniels this morning sentenced Roe L-
Hendrick to one year's imprisonment
for attempted blaokmail on Judge
Lewis' family.
MATERIAL FOR ZOLA.
New York, Dec. 23,—An extraordinary attempt was made to commit
suicide here this morning. The police
found a sidewalk cigar stand, kopt by
Wm Freamayer, in flames; tho door
was locked and when it was broken
open by the police Freamayer Btsg*
gered out with his throat and both
wrists cut. The roan was ovidently
insane, and assaulted the polico with a
piece of iron. It required the oom*
bined force of six men to subdue hiin.
Freamayer wm taken to tbo hospital
where his wounds wero pronounced
dangerous but necessarily fatal.
MR. SERPA PINTO,
Lisbon, Deo. 23.—Advices from
Quillimsuo to Deo. 12th, confirm the
correctness of the report made by Se-
hor Costello, engineer of tho Portuguese railway survey party, as to the
events preceding Major Serpa Pinto's
late hostilities against tho Makololos.
Costello's camp, at Mapassa, to which
he had retired after having been at*
tacked by tho Makololos, Was fiercely
besieged by natives some time later.
The attack wu repulsed with some
difficulty. There was good evidence
that the natives had been urged on by
British missionaries at Blantino. Afterward Serpa Pinto arrived and having learned that the natives were
massed on Zambesi, and were advancing toward Shire, he placed Costello's
engineer, Themudo, and Lieutenant
Oontino in command of the troops who
wero to defend the position. Lieut,
Contino also hsd oharge of the move*,
ment* of three armed boats. On Oct,
18th, the date of the lust advices from
the interior, great activity was report*
The Bold Burglar,
The following from Sunday's Colonist
will bo read with interest by many of
our readers who have the pleasure of
Mrs, McDonnel's acquaintance : The
private boarding house of Mrs. R, J.
McDonnel, Birdcage Walk, was en
tered by thieves during Friday night
or early Saturday morning, and the
rooms of several of tho boarders visited and quietly ransacked. Mr. N. E.
Groves lost his entire wardrobe, Mr.
E. M. Skinner a watch and chain and
a small nmount of money, and soveral
other lodgers littlo artioles of no special
value to nny but thu owners. The
robbers it is supposed entered by the
back door, which had carelessly been
left open hy the Chinaman. This is
tho first timo in yoars the back door
door has biion left unlocked, nnd that
tho robbery should havo occurred on
that particular night is, to sny the
least, singular.
Thn Wrecked Idaho.
As was mentirmod last night, it was
found thnt tlio tin; Alert was not powerful enough to handle the floating
wreck of tho steamer Idaho, and after
a struggle of sovoral hours the job had
to bo given up, the Alert coining bnck
to port last evening. Cants. Unrmtm
uml McKii-1, who wont down to the
wreck with the Alert state that beforo
she h'ft tho outer wharf tho captain of
the Walla Walla offerod the captain of
tho Alort $29 to go down nnd put a
lino aboard tho wreck forthe Walla
Walla to tow her in by. This mag-
nificient offer wus flatly refused, as by
all mnrino law the first person to board
a wreck is entitled to a big share of the
salvage, and the captain of the Alert
rightly thought that his share should
be more than $20, bo started his steam*
or for the wreck. Unforunately the
Alert had not the power to tow the
wreck in, or a good haul would hare
been the result. While the Alert was
struggling bravely with tho wreck the
steamer Walla Walla passed about a
mile outside but did not speak the
Alert or mako hor any offer whutovor,
as has beon repctted. Capt. Harmon
thought when tho Alert left tho Idaho
that tho latter might float for dnys.—
Saturday's Times.
The Stars Ottawa Bpeoial says: "It
is understood here that Ottawa parties
in the conservative intorest are negotiating with the Manitoba Free Press
for tho purchase of its evening franchise and of the Call plant. It Is said
that Mr. Luxton at flrst refused to
sell, bub is now  more  favorably  dis*
fiosed and is oxpeeted horo immediate-
y. Tho transaction, if completed,
undoubtedly moans tho establishment
of a straight conservative organ at
Winnipeg in ample time for the next
goneral election.
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
Tho oity council met at 8 p. m.
Monday for the transaotion of
businoss.
Present--Aldermen Reid, Curtis,
McPhaden, Cunningham, Calbick and
Jaques,
His worship Mayor Townsend in the
chair.
COMMUNICATIONS.
From John S. McDonnell stating
thut he hud no interest whatever in
theluno on Clinton st, which Ib public property, and which he had been
notified about by the corporation.
Aid. Jaques said the oity was not in
tho habit of taking over such lanes until they were deeded. He reoommen-
ded that the parties using it be notified thst they would be held responsible for any damsge done the crosswalk.
His Worship said this lane did not
conform to ihe plan of the oity and in
his opinion would never be takon over
so long It was In the state it was at
present. On motion the matter was
referred baok to Mr McDonnel), and
the clause of the sidewalk by-law to be
explained, Urhim.
From M. 0. Terhune requesting
council to grant bim the privilege of
running three times a week only to the
North Arm with his ferry during the
present season, as thero was notenough
trade to justifiy a daily trip; alao stating that he had consulted the North
Arm people about the matter, and thst
they were agreeable tothe proposed
change; also asking if a renewal of the
subsidy could bo expected. Received.
His worship said the counoil oould
not guarantee a continuance of the
subsidy.
Aid. Curtis Baid that if this counoil
gavo their opinion that the subsidy
Bhould be continued, the next council
would consider the matter in a more
favorable light. The North Arm trade
was well worth catering to. He was
sorry to say that the North Arm trade
was dropping away from Westminster,
and too much of it was going to Vancouver. The farmers said they would
much rather come to Westminster t han
go to Vancouver as they felt more at
homo in the royal oity.
Aid. Reid said he was sorry to see
that trade was failing with the North
Arm, it was well worth making every
effort to retain it.
Aid. Cunningham fully endorsed all
the remarks made as to the North
Arm trade. Westminstor ought to
Btrain every nerve to keep this trade
alive. He said the best thing they
could do was to favorably recommend
the continuance of the subsidy to the
next conncil.
Movod by Aid. Curtis seconded by
Aid, Cunningham, that believing it to
be highly important that steamboat
communication should be maintained
between this city and the North Arm
settlements: Resolved that in the
opinion of this council the request of
M. G. Terhune as to decreasing the
frequency by the str. Fairy Queen
ahould be granted to the elose of the
present year, and that Mr. M. G. Terhune be notified that this council will
recommend to its successors the importance of continuing the present subsidy.   Oarried.
From Richard Jones, Viotoria, notifying the council that the rent was due
on that piece of land near the penitentiary, leased to them by the Dominion
government for railway purposes, and
asking that a oheque for the samo ($25)
be sent as soon as convenient. Received.
Aid, Curtis aaid there was no doubt
if the matter were properly represented they could get a reduction. On
motion the money was directed to be
paid.
From F. C. Gamble, Dominion government engineer, requesting paymeut
of $10 for a tracing of the plan of the
peniteutinry reserve.
Aid. Jaques thought it ridiculous
that the Dominion government should
attempt to tax this oity $10 for a tracing which was of no value, snd when
information only had been asked. A
resolution was drawn up instructing
the clerk to communicate with Mr.
Gamble aud inform him that the counoil was surprised at receiving a bill ot
$10 for a tracing of the penitentiary reserve, as tbe oouncil were only asking
from his, department information
which ln the usual way they expected
would be gratis; and further to notify
Mr. Gamble that the tracing provided
did not give the required information.
Ln view of these facts the council hopes

From T. 0. Atkinson stating that
he had been instructed by Jas. Punch

of the excavations. Received and
filed.
From Jos. Sayor stating that there
must have beon some misunderstanding about his claim and fully explaining that he had no connection with the
Saver ovor tho way, who had beon
paid a dollar some time ago.
Aid. Jaques said it now turnod out
that there wero more Sayors than they
had bargained for, and this was not
tho same as tho gontloman who had

REPORTS.
The board of works had a three
volume report touching on an immense
amount of work done. Tho salient
points of the report are as follows;
That the work of grading on Clinton
and Fife sts.,andPark lsne,wu completed,and men are at work on St, Patrick'
above Montreal st. On Clement at.
work is progressing favorably. The
sidewalks on Dallas, Gossott, Ellice,
St. Andrew's and Simcoe sts, are com*
pleted except a few crossings, A 12x12
box drain had been put in on Fortesquo st, to take off a great quantity of
water; also thnt tho board of works
deemed it advisable to put down a sidewalk on the east side of the same
stroet so as to make it passable for
pedestrians during the winter; also re*
commending the laying over of the
construction of tho Edinburgh at, side*!
walk until the street is filled up; alio
stating that tbe sidewalks and improvements about the oity wero well under
way and progressing favorably.
Aid. Jaques said it waa essentially
necessary that a sidewalk should be
built on the east side of Fortescue st.
so as to connect with the workingmen's
nouses and the nearest sidewalks now
existing. These men had hard enough
work to do without trudging through
seas of mud to reach their work or
their homes.
Aid, McPhaden stated that he had
CITY COUNCIL. | been extremely astonished at the re
marks mide by Aid. Jaques, who had
contradicted himself on the sidewalk
argument. Aid. Jaquei was building
sidewalks for the benefit of his pocket,
and not for tbe good of the oity. Aid.
Jaquei bad threatened that he would
bave voted against the Edinburgh it.
sidewalk hid he been present.
Aid. Cunningham aid ho waa in
favor of the report, as it was high time
something wen done at that puce, as
ita preient condition wai dangerous.
Aid. Jaquei stood up and systematically refuted all Aid. McPhaden's
statements, and made some heavy
counter chargei, producing a plan of
Edinburgh et, to prove his statement
thst Aid McPhsden had come around
to the oity engineer's offlce, and had
the grade of Edinburgh it., established
by thii council, lowered oppoiite hll
property so as to mike it more valuable, irrespective of the rights of property ownen opposite.
Aid. McPhaden warmly repudiated
Aid. Jaques1 misrepresentations, as he -
called them. Hi bad said nothing to
the engineers, and he would defy any
one to aay different; it was an untruth
on Aid. Jaques' part
Aid. Jaquei rose and uid that Aid.
McPhaden must have known that when
he (Aid. McPhaden) made the statement on one occasion thit Aid. Jaquei
had sent men out to the North Arm to
fix up hii (Aid. Jaquei') property it
was a barefaced falsehood. Aid.
Jaques then explained at length how
tbe matter really stood.
Aid. McPhaden moved in amendment tbat the clause relating to the
Fortescue it sidewalk be itruok out;
there was no seconder.
Aid, Calbick thought it a large expenditure for so thinly populated a
place, but otherwise wai favorable to
the adoption of the measure.
Aid. Reid thought the sidewalk a
necessity and said it wu fully time the
poople up there had a chance to get to
their homes comfortably. Report a*
dopted.
The board of health, finance committee and board of works reported
recommending payment of the fol*
lowing

The park committee reported having had the olaim of the B. C. Agricultural Society for fence, shed,
closets, etc., at Queen's park under
consideration, and found that then
goodi cost the lociety $802 including
hardware and labor; the committee recommended that the mm of $602 be

Aid. Cunningham, that the clerk be

Aid. Curtis uid he had noticed that
Dr. McGutgan, of Vancouver, had
charged $20 for an inquest held here
when $10 wu the regular charge. He
uid the best thing they oould do wu
to aee about the appointment of a coroner. This opinion wai shared by the

Aid. Reid gave notice that at the

From tho roport of tho city council proceedings in another column it
will be seen thnt it has been do
termined to create a board of park
commissioners for tho city. Tlio
duties of thoso coimuissiotiers do
not seem to havo been defined, but it
mny be presumed Unit the parks of
tho city will be committed to their
administration subject to n certain
control by tlio city counoil. Our
readers will observe thnt tho electors
are asked to select three of these
commissioners, and ut tho samo time
to choose a chief nnd assistant on-
gineer for the fire department, und
that the selections in both cases aro
to bo made subject to the approval
of the council. This mode of procedure will doubtless strike most of
our readers as somewhat novel, and
deserving of explanation. The new
city charter it seoms, contains no
provision for the election of either
commissioners or firo engineers by
the ratepayers of the city, and it is
held that tho council has no authority to place upon the electors a
responsibility which the act clearly
intends tho council itself to assume.
There can be no objection, however,
to tbe counoil taking an expression
of opinion from the people on any
question touching tho interests of
the city, and this is precisely what
the resolutions passed last night propose to do, Tho electors will have
the same voice in the selection of
park commissioners and engineers
for tlio lire department as if the
charter had expressly --iveti them
the absolute choice, and it is taken
as a matter of course that the council will, by resolution, appoint the
persons who have beeu chosen by
the electors. With this explanation the intention of the council,
and the menus by which it proposes
to carry out that intention, will be
sufficiently apparent.
Speaking of the coming civic
elections in Montreal, the Daily
■Star says: "Theone issue that will
cl wart all others into insignificance is the qacstion of high taxation
of saloons and low taxation of water,
or Jiif-h taxation of water and low
taxation of saloons," Thoso who
tako their whisky with lota of water
in it will hardly understand why
this antithesis. The Star, continues, however, without any specific explanation: "No doubt much
will Lo .said by candidates, and very
properly, about city improvements,
and we hope the men elected will
all bo in favor of a liberal expenditure of public money on city and
harbor improvements. But the
greatest improvement Montreal can
reasonably hope for is that two or
three hundred saloons may bo wiped
our, of existence. Tho removal of
any nuisance from the city is a city
improvement, and the Baloons are
now so numerous as to amount to
a nuisance of a very serious character. They are injurious to the
moral and physical health of tho
community, they are the fruitful
cause of poverty and crime, they
depreciate the valuo of real estate,
and they disfigure tho streets of
what wo hope to see one of the
handsomest cities of the world.
Montreal cannot afford to keep five
hundred and ton saloons, they form
too sorious a drain on the health and
wealth of the community. Itis not
a question now of the merits of total abstinence. A man does not
need to be u teetotaller to seo that
saloons are too abundant in Montreal. On tha other hnnd, the man
who would prefer total prohibition,
if total prohibition wore attainable,
must see that if some check is not
at onco given to the development of
the liquor intorest und influence,
prohibition will never become a livo
issue in Montreal, Wo have five
hundred and ten saloons now, we
may have a thousand next year. Of
ono thing we may bo sure, wo have
got to have a great many less or a
great many more. Tho liquor interests are uot being neglected, the
aldermen who are elected six weeks
hence will be elected for threo years
and they will either bo for or against
tho saloon interests, Already tho
names of four men who aro or have
been in the liquor trade have been
mentioned as candidates. It is evident that the issue cannot be shirked." The above will show how cor
tain things nro regarded in some
other cities. But then, of course,
Montreal is ono of those "bigoted,"
"puritanical" "eastern" cities,
Europe is being plagued just
now, as our readers will have learned from tho despatches, with an
alarming epidemic of influenza. An
exchange observes that it is justifying the name which was given it
years ago of "lightning catarrh,"
and continues; It bas spread with
wonderful rapidity ovor Europo, und
in ell tbe chief cities great numbers
of the inhabitant) have been seized
with it. It seems to havo come
from Siberia, first making its ap-
penruuee in Mpacowand then quick
ly moving on to St. Petersburg,
Stockholm, Vienna, Berlin, Paris,

and London. Thnt it has no re-
spect for persons is evident from
the faot that members of the imperial families of both Russia and
Germany havo been attacked by it.
It is not in itself, as a rule, a dangerous disease, but in some cases it
assumes a malignant form, and usually aggravates other ailments from
which thoso seized with it may be
suffering, thus causing a marked in
creaso in tho death rate. This was
the caso in London in 1S47, when
about a quarter of a million of inhabitants were attacked. In six
months 1,730 deaths took place
which were attributed directly to
the disease, and during the six weeks
that tho epidemic was at its worst
the number of deaths was about
5,000 in excess of the average mortality. Visitations of this sort have
been by no means infrequent, The
first of which thore is any mention
in history occurred in 1311, but the
epidemic of 1150 is tho earliest of
Which there is uny authentic record,
Sinco then thore havo been over
ninety visitations, among the later
ones being thoso of 1803, 1833,
1837, and 1847. On one occasion,
in the last century, it took such a
hold upon the men of two Britisli
iloets wliich wero blockading the
coast of France that operations had
to bo suspended, and the fleet3
withdraw to Spitheud. In a number of instances the brute creation
has suffered as well ns man, this
having been frequently the case in
England since the beginning of the
last century. Our readers will remember also the epidemic which attacked thousands of horses in New
York somo years ago. The diseaso
is to some extent similar to bronchitis, but it differs from it in that
it produces a greater constitutional
disturbance. It may, therefore, be
regarded us a constitutional disease
of whioh bronchitis is the ohicf local manifestation. Owing to the
fact that on several occasions, notably in 1833 and 1856, an influenza
epidemic was followed by Asiatic
cholera ib has been supposed that
there is some connection between
the two. There appears, however,
to be no warrant for this theory
other than tho fact that, as influenza
during its prevalence is apt to vendor its victims more susceptible to
other diseases than they would ordinarily be, it aids the spread of
cholera whenever that disease appears simultaneously with it. It is
therefore somewhat alarming to learn
that cholera is now prevalent in tho
region beyond the eastern coast of
the Mediterranean, having spread
in that direction from India last
summer. In August and September it caused over 6,000 deaths in
Mesopotamia, and at one time the
mortality in Bagdad was from 200
to 400 a day. Should this dread
scourge make its way into Europe
while the influenza epidemio prevails
there the consequences might be appalling. Whether America will escape a visitation of the latter remains to be seen. The ocean has
seldom proved a barrier in tbe past,
■mil thf- praWbiliLj- Is   Unit vto bliull
suffer to some extent. Should this
bo so it is well to remember that, so
far as medical science has beon able
to determine, good ventilation and
drainage and proper sanitation generally ore the best safeguards
against the spread of the disease,

to preach to him without a feeling

WORKING-MEN  ABROAD.
Whut a Day's Work la the Countries Of
Europe Consists OC
A return Juit Issued tn pursuance of
an address from the House of Commons
throws considerable light on the question of working hours In Europe, says
the St. James' Gaxette.
I n Franco the hours of adult labor are
regulated hy a series of decrees, of
which the earliest, promulgated Septomber, 1848, enacts that the -working-
man's day iu manufactories and mills
ehall not exceed twelve hours of "effective1' or actual labor. Adeoree issued in Mpy, 1861, made exceptions, so
that more hours might be worked ln certain trades. Practically, the legal time
in mado to exclude rest. This makes the
working day so much the longer. Thus,
ono of tho Frenoh inspectors states that
tho hours of attendance ln factories
under the act of 1848 are from five In
the morning until seven ln the evening,
or a total of fourteen hours, out of
whleh thore are twelve hours of "effective labor.-- But the same authority also
Btatos that "effective" time often extends to thirteen and fourteen hours In
many weaving establishments. Finally,
wo are told that, "as a rule," it nay
bo taken that Frenohmon employed in
factories are present in the shops at
least fourteen hours out of overy twenty-
four
Among tho countries having no laws
affecting the hours of adult labor Germany Is conspiouous. Employers, howovor, can not foroe their servants to
work on Sundays and feast days. Employment of youthful or female labor in
cfrtAin kinds of factories, whioh is at*
toAdod with speoial danger to health or
morals, is forbidden or made conditional on certain regulations, by wbloh
night labor for female workpeople5 is
especially forbidden. In Germany, as
in othor countries also, women may not
be employed in factories for a certain
time after childbirth. In Hesse-Darmstadt the medium duration ot labor Is
from ton to twelve hours} the oases in
whioh the latter time is exceeded being, however, more frequent than those
in which the former is not exoeeded.
The normal work day throughout Saxony In all the prlnoipal branches of industry is from six a. m. to seven p. m., with
half an hour for breakfast, an hour for
dinnor and half an hour for supper. In
the manufacturing industry there are
departures from thoBo hours, the period
of work ln spinning and weaving mills
not infrequently being twelve.       >
In Austria tho law provides that the
duration of work for factory hands shall
not exceed elevon hours out bf the
twenty-four, "exclusive" of the periods
of rest. These are not to be loss in the
aggregate than an hour and a half. The
rulo oan be modified by the Minister of
Commerce, in connection with the Minister of tho Interior, allowing longer
hours Tho hours have been so extended
to twelve hours in certain industries,
such as spinning mills, and oven to
thirteen in silk manufactories, Sunday
rest is enforced. In Hungary there is
no limit laid down by law, but the hours
are not generally longer than in Austria,
Concerning the actual hours of adult
labor In Belgium, some difficulty ls said
to bo experienced In getting at the facts.
Tho evidenco given before a Belgium
royal commission showed that railway
guards are sometimes on duty for fifteen
and oven nineteen and a half hours at a
strotoh, and the Brussels tramway
drivers are at work from fifteen to seventeen hours daily, with a rest of only an
hour and a half at noon. Brlok-makers
work during the summer months sixteen
hours a day. In the sugar refineries the
average hours are from twelve to thirteen ior men and from nine to ten for
women. The cabinet-makers, both at
Ghent and Brussels, assert that they
havo often to work seventeen hours a
day.
In Switzerland the law provides that
a normal working day shall not exceed
elevon hours, reduced on Saturdays and
publio holidays to ten. Power Is reserved for prolonging the working day
in certain circumstances. Except in
oases of absolute necessity Sunday labor
Is prohibited, and in establishments
whore uninterrupted labor Is required
eaoh working hand must have'one free
Sunday out of two. Women can not
under any circumstances bo employed
in night or Sunday labor. Italy has not
legislated for adults, but has made regulations for child labor. Sweden is in
tho same position. Spain and Portugal
havo dono nothing. The general rule in
the latter country, applying to old and
young, is to work from sunrise to sunset, an hour and a half being allowed for
meals, In the Netherlands a law was
recently promulgated to prevent excessive and dangerous work by grown-up
women and young persons. In Turkey
the working day lasts from sunrise to
sunset, with certain intervals for repose
and refreshment In Russia, where
there aro no laws affecting the hours of
adult labor, the normal working day ln
Industrial establishments averages
twelve hours.

NEW SUBMARINE BOAT.
A Recent Invention of the frenoh for
War at Sea.
The Goubet. tho name of the boat
built by a private firm at the expense of
the State, is a little boat 5.00 meters
long and 1.68 meters broad. It oan hold
two men. Tho body of the oraft is oast
in bronze of a single piece, and ean,
thoreforo, bear a very high pressure. It
is moved by eleotrlolty, which in case of
failure can be replaood by oan. Completely armed lt weighs 6,000 kilogrammes (about 19,000 pounds), and ean,
therefore, bo transported easily everywhere.   -
The electricity, as may be safely assumed, is obtained from accumulators in
the boat, but it seems that the pro-
polling foroe oin also be transferred to
tho boat from land or from a ship accompanying the Goubet by means of a wire,
which would naturally considerably
hamper the movements of the submarine craft. The stores of compressed
air are said to last for twenty-tour hours,
and oan, by an automatic arrangement,
be so/llstrlbuted that the state of thealr
in the Bhip Is constant. The boat was lm*
morsed for eight hours at a depth of 10
meters with two sailors in it, and these
latter experienced not the slightest inconvenience during that period. As a
special advantage it is olaimod for tho
boat that it oan at a word ot oommand
sink any depth, greatest probably 10
meters, remain thore and change its po*
sitlon at will. The sinking and rising
in the water, it is said, ean be executed
with the greatest regularity, which ls
not tho case apparently with the Spanish submarine boat Peral and the other
Frenoh boatGymnote.—Cologne Gazette.

BORINQ A CANNON.
Work Tbat Requires rjOD.lder.ble Care
and Unlimited Patience.
At laat the cannon Is turned down,
and la ready to bo bored Insldo. In this
operation it must be bored so straight
and true that the boring tool, entering
at the exact center otthe small ond of
tho cannon, will come out precisely at
tho center of the large end, seventeen
feet away. Those of you who have tried
to bore a straight hole lengthwise
through even a short hit of wood will
know that this work rr quires not a little
skill and care.
When any of you boys have a Job of
boring to do at your work-henoh. you
make fast the articlo to be bored and
turn the boring tool. Itis just tho othor
way in boring a cannon. The boring
tool or "bit" is held firm and motionless,
while tho great mass of steel to bo bored
turns around. This plan is found to insure steadlnoss ot the "bit." It would bo
almost impossiblo to make this bit firm
and solid enough to do its difficult work,
ind yet freo to turn around in the cannon. So if you had boon at the side of
this gun-lathe when the work was bo-
run you would have seen that the bit
was motionless—except for a slow ad-
vanco into the gun.
The bit attends strictly to businoss,
and steadily bores its way through tho
.tool. Most of you bave been to the
sountry and have seen a pig "rooting"
In tbe ground. Imaglno, then, a pig to
be standing Btill and the ground to be
.lowly passing under tho pig's snout and
being "rooted," and you will have a caso
much like that of the bit and the cannon. In tact, tbe boring tool is called a
"hog-nosod" bit, and it roots up that
oannoh as it lt enjoyed the operation.
No long, graceful curls como from this
boring, but small, crisp shavings that
are removed as fast as they accumulate
in order that the boring tool's work
shall not be interfered with. Thelitis
going into the steel at tbe rate of three-
eighths of an inch for every turn of the
cannon, and lt ls making a round holo
almost large enough for a boy to put his
head in—five and three-quarters inches
in diameter. As the round hole grows
deeper, tbe heavy bar, on whioh the bit
is fastened, advances into the cannon
steadily, moved by a number of wheels
and screws that form part of tho lathe.
I must not lose sight of the shavings,
tho little ones that oome from the inside
and the' long, spirally-twisted ones that
are turned from the outside of the cannon. A military-looking man, standing
near the lathe, does not lose sight of
these Bhavings or trimmings either.
This man's business is to carefully inspect the borings and trimmings. That
ls what he is paid to' do. Uncle Sam
pays htm and expects him tb earn his
salary. The cannon is being made for
Undo Sam and ho intends to find out all
Its qualities, whether good or bad. So
the man eyes tho borings carefully
Now, if with a plane or your knife-blade,
you will out a thin shaving from a bit of
wood, i,t will show any little flaw existing in the wood from which it was sliced.
Tho tiniest knot-hole or orack will show
in the shaving much more plainly than
ln the wood itself. So itls with a cannon's shaving. It is a dreadful tell-tale,
and tho fault-finding man bosido tho gun
knows this perfeotly well. Ho examines
the spiral turning er the little piece of
boring and finds no evidence of a flaw
or orack. Tho long spiral strip is as
smooth as glass snd as glossy as you.
sister's curls.
Into the solid steel tbe hog-nosed bit
roots its way until lt ls ln so far that a
Uttle olootric light must bear it company
to show=the workmen how matters aro
progressing ln the heart of the cannon.
After eighteen days of steady boring tho
bit lets daylight into the bore of tho
cannon by emerging at the other (or
larger) end, soventeon feet away,—St.
Nicholas.
COTTON  MILL 8CENES.
Ptommm Employed to Convert Haw Cotton Into Prim. Sheeting. '
The cotton used is bought at various
Southern points, It arrives here in cars.
On Its arrival the bales, whioh contain
about SOO pounds eaoh of cotton, aro put
in a building adjoining the pioker room;
this is called the mixing room. Tho
cotton ls first run through the willow,
where a numbor of toothed oylindors,
revolving 2,500 revolutions a minuto, remove most of the dust. It next goes
through a flno pioker where still moro
dust is removed, thon lt goes through
tho finishing pioker whore lt ls rolled up
into laps. This machine ls regulated by
an ingenious govornor so that the laps
are ot uniform size. Tho laps of cotton
pass on to the card room where the fibor
is disentangled, brushed and oombed,
then Itls deposited ln beautiful fleeces
on an endless belt, wbloh conducts It
to the railway head, whore the straight-
fiber ls contracted into a
narrow ribbon and is deposited
ln a revolving can ready tor the noxt
process. The cords whioh straighten
the fibre of the oottou sro clothed with
a needle-pointed wire which are kopt
sharp, being ground by an automatic
grinder, a machine whioh has yielded
Its Inventor t good many dollars. The
grinder is attached to a card ln the
morning and by night has lt ground
sharp. From the railway head the cotton goes to the drawing frames, and
when it bas passed through two of them
the twelve strands have been mergod
Into one. Automatic fingers stop theso
machines on the breakage of any one ot
the strands. It noxt visits the eoarso
speeder which very swiftly winds in on
bobbins, and then the fino speeder whioh
twists together two strands from the
coarse speeder. One halfot the cotton
from the speeders goes to the spinning
mules, where rapid revolving spindles
twists lt Into thread, winds lt into a cop
ready for the weaver. Theotherhalfgoos
to tho eighteen spinning frames whoro lt
Is Bpun on bobbins ready for the spoolers,
the girls working at the spoolers run
the thread off of the bobbins on to largo
spools. Three bundred and sixty ot
these spools are placed ln a warper and
with a whirl are made to take thoir
place on t large beam, six of theso
beams are next taken to the slasher, a
machine that was built in England and
Imported to this country. When tho
thread ls passing through the slasher lt
ls treated to boiling starch, which is
called siting. After passing through
the siting it emerges from the slasher
onto * beam one yard wide, whioh, whon
Uted, holds 9,160 threads, eaoh M0 yards
long. These ore thon harnessed by hsnd,
making a complote warp ready tor the
' i. These beams are then takon to
weave room, where there are 189
looms making a deafening noise weaving into the warp the cop thread from
the spinning males. From tho loom tiro
cloth goes to the finishing-room—from
there to tho folder, and after boing

The Southern Hallway*
A gentleman who has just returned
from a visit to Fairhaven brings the
news that that oity is fairly booming.
Buildings are going up in all directions,
streets are being opened, and, best of
all, work on tho Fairhaven and South*
orn Railway is being pushed as fast as
men can do tho work. Construction
northwards from Fairhaven has commenced, nud tho rails are being laid
as fast ns the roadbed is graded. Mr.
Bennett is showing moat surprising
enorgy in all matters connected with
tho building of the road, and hia material yard, near the wharf, iB the
buaiest spot in Fairhavon. He expects to havo tho mils laid through to
Westminster by June 1st, which, if
accomplished, will be rather more
rapid work than was expected.

Remember the Little Ones.
To-morrow will bo tho hnppieat day
in nil tho yenr for the littlo ones. Ere
the grey dnwn has broken, four thousand children in Westminster will be
deep in the mysteries of the stocking
full of nice things presented them by
Santa Olaua. And the joy, the sntis-
fnction and the happiness theso little
presents bring will givo them for the
next aix months a never-failing theme
of pleasure to look back on, and remember the event with an interest
only exceeded by the anticipations of
tho next occasion .of the kind. It
does not cost much to pleaso the little
ones, nnd however smnll the cost may
be, tho pleasure given recompenses a
thousand times tho outlay. Be generous to tlie children to-night, and remember in making them happy you
aro nt tho snme time piling up pleasure
fur yourself.
A Chinese Social.
A very pleasing social took place at
tho Chineso mission school last night.
After a short programme of music and
singing, a very handsomo spread, consisting of pies, cakes, jellies, coffee and
many other nice things was laid before
tho visitors, Tho event of the evening was tho presentation of handsome
rings to tho teachers of tho school,
Misa Burns nnd Misa Clarke, and pretty
memeiitoca to Mra. Monck and Miss
Crake, who, also, intereBt themselves
in the work. The presents were accompanied with a vory flattering address, signed by all tbo pupils of the
school. Suitable replies were made
by tho teachers, Rev, J, H. White nnd
others, after which the company dispersed, well pleased with tho manner
in which they had been entertained
and thoroughly impressed with tbe
importance of the work the school ts
accomplishing.      _
Jolly Coasters.
The merry shouts of the coasters
echoed and re-echoed exuberantly yesterday on the Mnry Btreet incline.
The young people and their aleds
monopolized in their own. jovial wny
most of the sidewalk; and as they slid
joyously down hill, pedestrians out all
manner of capers to get out of the way.
The writer, who was toiling along
under a mountain of speculative
thought, caused shrieks of merriment
to burst from one happy-go-lucky aled-
load by the unintentionally comical
manner with which he executed a ;>«s
seul to got out of the way of the human avalancho. The celerity of his
movements waa infinitely quickened
by the sibilant hiss which a sphere of
icy slush, a relntion of the snow ball
family, made as it hummed gaily past
hia left ear and made n big star on one
of the fence boards near by. Tho
youthful joker who threw it turned
round and applying the tip of his
thumb to the extremity of his retrousse
nose, oxtended tho fingers of his
hand and squinted horribly, yelling at
the aamo timo some uncomplimentary
epithet nt his escaped victim, who
laughed, although no couldn't seo
when tho fun came in.
Au Epicurean Rtinrnl.
Roast turkey, stuffed with sausage
meat nnd served with cranberry sauce,
or boiled turkey stuffed with bread
crumbs, sage and oysters, and accompanied by oyster sauce, are two dishes
which Mr. Lewis Orden is very fond
of. In fact hia taste IB bo evenly divided on tho bonuties of the two dishes
that when he stole a couple of turkeys
from Mr, Vianen's store last night it
was for tho express purpose of gratifying hia epicurean tastes to the fullest.
Mr, Orden docs not claim to be particularly poor, neither does he boast
of a largo degree of honesty, either
Inherited or acquired, but no prides
himself on his knowledge of primo
turkey when properly aerved--nnd on
this he is willing to stand or fall. He
will probably "fall" into the hands of
the police before the Christmas repast
is ready for his disposal, for Mr. Vianen iB an angry man, having aet aside-
the stolen birds for his own special
use, Mr, Vianen had just stepped
out for a moment to got somo chango,
and it is supposed that Mr. Orden, being in a hurry, could not await hia return, ao collaring the beautiful birds,
he walked off, leaving a void in the
poultry market that will bo hard to
till. If Mr. Orden oan beep undor
cover till Thursday momint; he will be
in luok, but it ia confidently predicted
that he will eat hia New Year's dinner
with Mr. Moresby's guest* in the pro*
»inoW gaol.

The Columbian reporter got on to
tho homo stretch thia morning and
madepretty good timo on the last lup by
"taking in" the following deservedly
popular establishment* and thoir contents, that is, he took a hurried but
nono the less thorough survey ct their
stock in much the way that a London
appraiser tloes—-keeps his oyes working
at full preBsuro while exchanging tho
polite salutations of civilization with
tho proprietor. Tho first atoro visited
was that of
DICKINSON & co,
coruor of McKenzie and Columbia ato,
Tho display of meat in this establishment ia enough to make tho moat inveterate vegetarian ashamed of his
miserly opinions, nnd convert him from
a mean cabbago-chowcr into u bluff
nnd jolly beef-eater, liko nil thu sensible people. Mighty barons of beef
hang gracefully and juicily from hook
and beam; succulent legs, sides and
shoulders of home-fed mutton grin a
welcome from every slash, and dead
but dignified porkers, with layers of
fat, inches thick, and white aa thu
driven snow, mako the sturdy rafters
gronn again with their ponderous
gravity, Atlantic cables of sausages
and polonies liko magnified police
clubs, aro piled high on huge plait .'it,
interspersed with holly and evergreens,
uud mnko the mouth of the opectator
water sympathetically. Messrs. Dickinson & Co. are making nn elaborate
show thia season and it will bo ouo of
the Bights to-night.
VAN VOLKENBUIUW DUOS.
find it very dillicult to preservo tho
fino show thoy had, intact, owing to tho
inroada mado upon it by tho impationt
but appreciative public. Thoir atock
consists of the usual display of primo
beef and mutton; choice cuts of veal
nnd pork by the ton. In aauaages and
other manufactured nrticles of diet
peculiar to the butcher trado they have
n great selection, fresh antl warranted
tho genuino articlo. Poultry dressed
and ready for the spit or saucepan can
bo choion by tho purchaser in this
store from quantities without numbor.
In nil departments pertaining to the
butchering business thia firm stands
tho equal of tho best in tho city.
s. NANAHAN'S
well-known and popular meat
house, waa found full of customer*
when Tun Columbian reporter
squeezed iu betwoen a suspended member of the porcine family and a lady
with a large basket, and confronted
tbe smiling manager. The writer was
asked to look around, which ho did,
and noted tliat one of tho completes*
atocks iu the city was hanging on thu
hooka. Ono hog, of mammoth dimensions, hanging from n beam horo a
label reading, "541 pounds." The
hog was truly a monster and might
have served to pay tho "rint" for a
whole Irish county. In boef, mutton,
veal and pork Mr. Manahan hns a
grand display, and finds that the demands of his custodiers will scarcely
enable him to make what is technically
known ns "a show" to-night. Tho
store, however, is worth a visit from
everyone who likes to bob fine Christmas beef.
W. 11. vianen.
Last night Mr. Vianen bad a inag-
"nificent exhibition of drosaed poultry
of nil descriptions, turkeys, geese,
chickens, ducks, widgeon, grouse,
partridge, and almost everything, that
does business on wings. In thu treasures of tho "vasty deop" ho had also
nn unrivalled display, from tlio sprats
and smelts up to cod and sturgeon of
monstrous size; shellfish weru also on
the slab in great quantities, but overy
one of theeo items haa been snatched
up by the public long eto this description appears. Mr, Vianen sold ovor
200 turkeys yesterday along with othor
fowl, aud no record was kept of tho
number of lish disposed of. Enormous
quantities of cranberries also went the
wny of the fowl. It ia impossible for
Mr. Vianen to mnke n show as no
sooner are the articles on tho hooka
than they aro off' again.
OGLE, CAMPBELL & CO.
Tho gents furnishing store operated by
this enterprising firm ought to prove a
favorito "stamping ground" for all the
young men in town who delight in elegant personal adornment. The atock
ia ao completo that if a naked man run
in at tho back door, they could permit
him to emerge at tho front entrance
arrayed like a ''dude" of the worst
kind going to visit his rich relations
out in the country. From all grades
of ready made clothing to the lighter
forma of 111.1I0 raiment, evory article of
man's apparel can bo obtained in this
magazine of novelties. Vnlisos and
aatchela, walking sticks and sill: umbrellas, gold and silver mounted, travelling rugs nnd dressing cases, nud nil
thnt civilized mnn requires wherewith
to travel comfortably, can bo found at
tho moat moderate prices in this store.
Tn npek wear and collars, cuffs and
shirts, tho firm makes a practically unrivalled display, Ono of their specialties is fino high-clnas dressing gowns
iu all tlio latest Btyles aud materials;
theae gooda must be seen to be appreciated. Tho window diiplay mado by
thia establishment is ono of (ho prettiest on Columbia st,, and has been
vory much admired. It is tho work
of nn artiat in tliat branch of art.
II. fj. fiCOULLAH ifcco,
Ouo of tho managers of this great hardware establishment drew tho reporter's
attontion tu a number of beautiful
brass gas fixtures, hnll lamps in solid
polished brass and bevelled plato glass,
and assured him that these wore Christmas specialties. They are epeciaitios
indeed, and of no mean order; Ihey
are probably not execuded in beauty of
design and finish by anything in that
lino in tho province. Tho firm is making a splendid show of tiled, open fire
places of handsomo designs and very
artistic. Theae gooda have commanded a ready sale, and' very few of them
are now left. It is worth while to drop
in and havo n look at them, Messrs.
Scoullar & Co., havo nlso received a
very largo consignment of granite ware
direct from New York city, which they
are selling at such low rates that tho
Btook of them cannot possibly Inst over
a few dnys. Brass lire outs, poker,
tongs, shovel, brush, etc., of which
they had a fino assortment a few daya
ngo, are now nearly cloarod out; thoao
goods would be an ornament to nny
mansion. MeBara. Scoullar & Cos

article usually found in first-class hardware establishments, nnd tho inducements thoy aro offering for tho Christmns Bonso'n should attract crowds of
customers to thoir fino store.
