kaderd of the striko say that the strike

from a small building noar the opera
houBe caused some ono to ring tho tire
bell near by, and some one in the gal*
lory, aaid to havo boen a boy, yelled
''Fire," and a panic ensued, men, boys,
nnd womon jumping from the gallery
^n to the top of the heads ot the peoplo below. The gallery seat broke
with ft crush, increasing the fright; as
it wns thought the building was fallintr.
A hundred nnd fifty or more poople
crowded into the narrow stairway at
once, and pressed on so closely that
thoao in front fell in the doorway, The
stairway wns piled full of struggling
people, and tho uproar could be heard
tour squares away.   The police fought
those trying to get out by walking over
unfortunates packed on tho stair. A
great crowd assembled on tho street
and also had to be fought bnck from
tbe theatre door to give room.
The play was nearly at au end. The
actors behaved with great presence of
mind nnd prevented tho catastrophe
from being worse than what it wus.
Finally the tumult within the building
was held in check and lhc people returned to their scuts, and progress was
madu in clearing the stairway of the
dead and badly injured; those were
draped up on lo tho stage, and others
who were less butt were holped to lho
top of the stairs. Tho firemen at the
engine near by turned a stream of
water upon the crowd outside and
drove them from the entrance to the
building. The dead were quickly removed to the morgue. Several of the
injured died while being taken to thoir
homes or tho hospital. Iu nil about
seventy persona received moro or less
serious injuries.

citic will lend its aid to irrigation com*
pauies to be formed under the authority of the individual states for the improvement of these lands.

OTTAWA NOTES.
Ottawa, Deo. I).—Lieut.-Goyernor
Royal says the Northwest crisis ia
nothing but a tempest in a tea pot.
The greatest satisfaction is felt all over
the territories at the prosont form of
government, and he sees no reason
why tho change should not bo made
permanent.
The live stick export trade via the
St. Lawrence this year is the largest of
any year.
1-ourteen carloads of ties for the
Northern Pnoitic railwny have beeu
seized at Winnipeg for undervaluation.
Ottawa, Deo. 10—The British Oolumbia salmon canners, who wero here
a few days ago, urged the government
that no protection should be given tbe
trout there, allotting thnt they preyed
upon the Balmon, Mr. Wilmol, superintendent of the fish oulture, Bays:
lt is natural for nil fish to prey upon
ono another, large liih upon small
onos, and small ones upon the oggs of
the large ones. Both salmon and
trout wero originally abundant in theae
waters, but canners, by killing so
many salmon nnd leaving the trout
untouched, destroyed the balance.
There is, therefore, a necessity for tin1,

THE GREAT STEIKE.
Cardinal Maiming and the Lord
Mayor will Mediate Between
Strikers and Employers.
Two Forgers Arrested in London
are Suspected of a Great
Theft iu 1H85.
Everything is Moving; Along Nicely
and Comfortably in the New
Brazilian Republic.
THE LONDON STRIKES.
London, Deo. 11.—The lord mayor
aud cardinal Manning have agreed to
mediate in the ooal carters' strike, aud
the prospects are that the differences
between the employers and men wiU
be adjusted. The strike of the
gas workers will probably prove abortive, as the companies are obtaining a
host i if men to replace the strikers.
FORGERS ARRESTED.
London, Dec. 11.—The two mon,
named Turner aud Clark, arrested for
forging and uttering Chilian and Alabama bonds, aro also suspected of being implicated in the theft of £22,000
from Baoing Bros., the bankers, iu
1885. They were arraignod and re
raanded.
THE NEW  REPUBLIC.
London, Dec. 11.—The manager of
the National Bank of Brazil, referring
to tho adverse comments of the Eng.
liah press on Brazilian stability, tele*
graphs that the comments are groundless, complete tranquility prevails, and
there is the fullest confidence in the
present government and everything is
progressing well.
A SERIOUS OUTLOOK.
London, Deo. 10.—The attitude of
tho coal handlers in connection with
the threat of a strike of gas workers
adds an alarming feature to the already
serious situation. Ostensibly in sympathy with tbe gas srikers and others
employed by the gas companies, but
really in futheranco of their own interests, the coal handlers have issued an
ultimatum to the matters, giving them
the alternative of advancing their
wages or suffering the inconvenience
and pecuniary loss of a determined
strike. The action of the coal hand*
lers as well as the movements of the
gas workers is well timed as a means of
spreading discomfort and even distress,
since they who directly supply every
house in the metropolis with coal, seize
the opportunity to enforce their demands at the beginning of the busy
season. The threatened stoppago of
the supply of gas has created a bot. in
in the petroleum trade and the demand
for lamps is greater than has ever be*
fore been known, and almost beyond
the capacity of the dealers to fill. The
London Gas Light Company is flooded
with applications for work, and has already engaged 1500 men to take the
place of any of their men who may go
out on strike. The number of com*
potent handi standing ready to fill the
vacant plaoes has greatly encouraged
the belief of the company in its ability
to win a deserved victory. Hence its
stubbornness in refusing to agree to
sny terms ahort of compliance with the
present of order things.
MORLEY SUGGESTS: BARNUM ACTS
London, Deo. 10.—Mr. Morley, in
a speech at Dundee last night, suggested that peers who may resign their scats
for life in the House of Lords should
be permitted to contest for the House
of Commons. Among them are many
wise men of talent who may do more
useful work if admitted to the Hnuaa
of Commons. Bamum will take his
show to Paris after its run in this
country, and has secured the Mechanics' Hall, on the Champ de Mars, for

A TF.RRIBLE ACCIDENT.
A Vouuffttott Named McQuarrie Terribly
Injured by • locomoltre.
A son of Daniel McQuarrie, a shoe*
maker of this city, while crossing the
railroad at a crossing east of Yale bU-
tion, on Sunday, was cautrht by the
Atlantic Express which struck him on
the right leg, smashing both bores be*
low tbe knee, twisted him round nnd
dashed him down with such force as to
crush in the top cf the skull on tho
left side, at once rendering him insensible. The unfortunate man was
brought to New Westminster on yesterday evening's express und placed
under tho care of Dr. Fagan, who had
him removed to St, Mary's hospital.
Mr. McQuarrie's caie is extremely
critical, and Dr. Fagan entertains
scarcely any hope for his recovery,
There is a deep depression on the left
side of the skull which ia pressing on
the brain. He has been unconscious
since the time of the accident, and the
doctor saya that only the patient's
youth can pull him through. It wai
the cowcatcborthat struck Mr. McQuarrie first and mangled his right leg and
hurled hiin to the ground. The Teg is
hopelessly smashed. It ia supposed
that he was crossing the track ae the
train oame up, and waB looking in tho
opposite direction when it struck him.

amusing to find the Church street editor
trying to correct you for contracting a

the Queen's English; he says "these

may be bo all right, but tho trouble with

might ilo well to attend the Y. Bf. C. A.

ignorance of the English grammar.
Observer,
Guilders In Victoria,
Mr. 0. W.  Jeffrey,  V. S.,
of Tacoma, who came over on a viait
last week, haa been appointed by the
mayor to inspect the horses in thia
city, aa it has been reported that a
number were infected with the dreaded
disease glanders, which all horsemen
Sronounce incurable. Yeaterday Mr.
effrey, accompanied by Dr, Milne,
health officer, visited several of the
stablei in tho city and found tea
horses infected with tho diaeaae^Hf]
of whioh belong to Mr. C. J. ,K!jjt-
He also visited ono belonging ttrnn,
Young, whioh hss been ihot by'itr
owner. In speaking to a representative of this papor last evening, Mr.
•leflrey said that, in his opinion, the
stables in whioh tho horses have been
kept ihould be torn down, for if tbey
were not it would be impossible to rid
the oity of the disease. The inspection will bo continued today. A report will be made to the council, and
it ii expected that aotive measures will
at once be taken to stamp out tho dii*
ease.— Tuesday's .Colonist. Al thil

What would have been a fatal accident was prevented by the boldness
and forethought of Mr. F. A. Devlin,
C. P. R. detective. A man was driving acro-.s the Carrall Btreet crossing,
looking backward, when a train ap*
?roached coming from the main line,
he team was almost on the track, and
a second later would have been struck
by the passing engine, when Mr. Devlin rushed forward, stopped them and
turned them out of the way, tho engine
rtuhini* past almoat under their noses.
Sa narrow an escape was it that those
who notioed it held their breaths expecting to see a fatality, nnd turned
pale at what seemed the very approach
of Budden death. Mr. Devlin performed a bravo act—he saved, unquestionably, tbe life of one of his fellowmcn.

'L The Tacoma Globe says of the Tittell
Dramatic Company, which begins a
three nights' engagement at Herring's
Opera House on the 16th inat: "The
charming Essie Tittell and hor gifted
sister, Minnie, with their accomplished
oompany, presented Bartley Campbell's
interesting Irish drama, "My Geral-
dine," to a good audience at the Alpha
laat night, and the performance was aB
excellent as the circumscribed fucili- -
ties of the houae would allow. Under
more favorable oircumatances the present company would give the piece as
well as it is ever given anywhere. As
it was, every member of tbe oompany
was most satisfactory in his or her
part. Miaa Essie makes a winsome
Geralditie, an-1 Minnie does equally at
well as Nora. The old reliable George
Oaine was strong in the ungrateful part
of McShane, and Mr. Philleo, always
a startling actor, was an excellent Phil
Carroll. Every member of the company in the cast did well their parts,
and the production was a success."
Serious Can Accident.
On Thursday last Dr. Walkem was
summoned by telegraph to Thetis la*
land to attend to Miaa Sitwell who was
suffering from a gunshot wound. It
appears that the accident nccured to
Miss Sitwell, under the following circumstances: Her brother had been
using the gun, and put it on tbe rack
cooked. The sistor of the injured lady,
who is no novcie in the use of firearms,
having many times shot grouse and
other birds direct from the shoulder at
70 and 80 yards, took down the gun'
and in some unaccountable manner it
was discharged. The charge of ahot
took effeot in the fleshy partof Mill
Sitwell's arm, just below the elbow.
The wound is a bad one, the shot
having made sad havoo among the
muscles and flesh of the arm. The
bones of the arm, however, are thought
to have escaped injury. Ou Dr. Wai*
kern's arrival he dressed the wounds,
and yesterday the injured lady oame
baok with the dootor. Miss Sitwell
bore up under the trying ordeal with
exceptionable nerve and courage.—

New Westminster waa formerly the
capital ot British Columbia. Its big
lister—Vancouver—12 miles north,
thinks she is twice as populous, or In
other words oontaini 1U,000 inhabitants. As Chinese are allowod to own
real estate in British Columbia, muoh
of the best real estato in Vancouver is
owned by the rice eating Mongolians.
New Westminster ia on the north bank
of the Fraser river 12 miles from whero
it empties into tho Gulf of Georgia.
The tido runs up tho river 70 miles
above the city. For a distanoe of 80
miles from its mouth tho valley of tho
river is very fertile; and the Delta, in*
eluding Lulu island, ia very similar to
to the wonderfully productive prairio
lands of our own county of Skagit.
The sheriff there does not havo to look
after criminal business. That is left
for the police. Twenty miles this Bide
of New Weitmimter we crossed the
boundary line between our oountry nnd
tho territory of our British cousins.

Hebe is the silly anil discourteous
way in which a certain class of our
American cotemporaries make reference to their very respectable nnd
much more polite neighbor, Canada :
"Brazil was the only monarchy on
the western hemisphere, and now
sinco that has been overthrown, and
a republic proclaimed, freedom has
been established all over both Ameri
can continents, with the exception
of that one black spot, the British
possessions." — Portland    Evening
Journal   Black spot indeed. Upon
no fairer spot, physically, politically, and socially, does the son shine
than on these same British posses
sions in North America—the"Great-
er Half of the Continent," known as
the  Dominion of Canada.   As for
"freedom," whioh all too often takes
the rampant form in the land where
the eagle screams, we as Canadians
have  a practically   complete  autonomy, and, with our better laws
and their purer and more strict administration, we enjoy a greater degree of true freedom than do the
vaunting citizens of the "land of
liberty."   If our  very   complimentary Portland cotemporary is on the
look out for "black spots," it will
find some'of very sable hue indeed,
and covering a pretty big patch of
oountry, within the borders of its
own boasted land.    The negro question of the south is a "black spot,"
in every sense of the term, that is
assuming larger and more threaten'
ing dimensions every year.   Mor-
monism is another blaok and sore
spot, which, if Canada is wise, she
will not permit to fester within her
dominions.   A growing, active, and
darkly   menacing    anarchism   and
fenianism— which has already given
notable manifestations of its hideous
and foul presence—is a very black
spot  that,  unless   promptly  and
courageously   stamped out by the
law, will yet have to bo purged with
blood.   The   wide-spread   and increasing corruption in the civil service and in their national politics
generally is well fitted to fill patriotic  and  honest   Americans  with
gloomy apprehensions for the future,
Scarcely less black than any of the
foregoing dark   splashes   on  our
boastful neighbors' 'scutcheon is the
notorious and, it is to be feared,
growing, laxity and corruption of
morals in a large section of American society.   But we forbear pointing out tbe "black spots," or the
"stars and stripes" will soon appear
like a pirate's flag and tho body
social and politic of the great republic be seen to be "blaok and blue"
all over.   The foregoing glimpse at
the dark side of the picture  may
teach some of our complacent and
glib-talking neighbors to see themselves as others see them with regard tothe more obtrusive blemishes
that mar their country's fair features.   It cannot   be denied that
thero is a very bright side  upon
which wo have  not  looked; but,
while this is so, we have not one
whit exaggerated the "black spots."
Badical than tho last, although
wiseacres shook their heads vory
sagely when Dilke, rjtansfeld, and
Morley were called to the administration, A weekly reviow,
therefore, which will represent
the enlightened sentiments of
militant Liberalism, is what
is wanted, nnd, if we may
judge from past performances, Mr.
Wemyss Reid is preoisely the man
best fitted to steer the early fortunes
of a venture which, whilst it will-
command many indulgent friends,
will have to rise to a more than
usual by high level if itis to be successful sido by side with the Spectator
aud tho Saturday. The audacity of
starting a daily illustrated newspaper is rather startling, on account
of the novelty of the thing. One
thing is sure, the now paper is in
tho right hands, if it cau be made a
success. Mr. Thomas, of the
Graphic, has elaborated his plant as
only so capable an ono as he is possibly could do, and already his arrangements are so perfected that in
the event of necessity arising, cuts
of any building or streot in the metropolis could be produced at
very few hours, notice If it is
possible to make illustrated daily
journalism popular and profitable, the London Graphic people are the right men to do it, but
the obstacles in the path of a diurnal pictorial sheet, aiming at accuracy and artistie merit, are so obvious that the newspaper world, no
less than tho general public, will
watch the experiment with sympathetic interest, if with an admixture of scepticism.
Before our intensely classical
Church street cotemporary again exposes its silly pedantry by quoting
Latin for our instruction, it would
do well to learn to write decent English, Criticising an article in this
paper on the civic elections, the
Church st. pedant pens the following sentence:   "These impressions
 may be all  right, but the
trouble with that article lays in its
being more in the nature of self-
glorification," eto. We commend
the above choice sentence to the
primary class in grammar in tho
public school, for parsing and correction. When the juvenile analysts
have ascertained what it is that the
"trouble" in question, "with that
article," "foy."—or deposits — "in
ite being," and what is the antecedent of "t'<»," we will be obliged if
they will communicate the solution
to this office. For the best answer
to this prizo puzzle we will give a
Christmas sled or a Santa Olaus doll

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The prize offered by the New
South Wales government for the extermination of the rabit pest has
been withdrawn. No new modes
of extermination had been suggested.
The rabbits are also a terrible nuisance in New Zealand, but are there
kept under by the hawks.
Emily in the new year, London,
England, is to be supplied with a
daily illustrated newspaper to be
called the Daily Graphic and to be
issued from the oflice of the world
known journal of similar name, but
whioh is a weekly publication.
About the same time a review similar to tho Saturday or the Spectator
will make its appearance. The venture is to be named the Speaker and
will be edited by Mr. Wemyss Reid,
the woll known compiler of "The
Liberal Programme," a valuable and
interesting collection of opinions of
eminent statesmen of the progressive party. The Londoner, pure
aud unadulterated, is, a most hopelessly inveterate newspaper reader,
and it may be hoped, therefore, that
the two new additions to the already lorge number of journals published in the British metropolis,
will meet with the success anticipated for them. There can be little
reasonable doubt that a weekly review of the get-up of the Saturday,
but of sterling Liberal views, is sadly needed. 1!he Saturday "Revila",
as John Brightonce called tho Review,
is of a very pronounced Tory order,
In its columns the present Lord
Salisbury for some timo displayed
his preeminent talent for journalistic invective, which has ever since
been largely characteristic of the
paper in question. The Spectator,
whilst scarcely inferior in quality to
tho Jleview, is lacking it.Itist ig-

The citizens of Windham, Me.,
are laughing at a newly married
man of that town who went to Portland shopping, taking his bride with
him, but who forgot her when he

something finally resolved itself into
the realization of the fact that it
was his wife who was left behind.
France is going to put an increased tax upon strong liquors as a
means of checking their sale as much
as possible, potato brandy and other
strong and injurious liquor having
come into use in the north, since the
vineyards of France became injured
by the pbylloxeria. The Germans
will be sufferers by the taxation, if
it becomes prohibitive, for they
manufacture most of the infamously
impure liquor which is drunk by the
Belgians and the poorer classes in
northern France.
It is said that no building, howover solidly constructed, can resist
the power of the volumes of flame
which are developed in great conflagrations, The intensity of the
heat becomes so great that stone
crumbles and iron melts, and the
most massive structure disappears as
if by magic. This was the case at
the great fire in Chicago, and, it
seems, also in Boston the other day.
It ic manifest, therefore, that efficient work on the part of the firemen at the earliest possible moment
is of the utmost importance. Five
minutes' delay may allow an ordinary fire to become a

secured a perfect light for pictures
by placing at the back of the bulbs
in his system of lighting a lead piece,
covering half of the bulb and fitting
it closely. Insided of the bulb is a
coating of silver. The yellow of the
light and the silvor reflection mako
a light that brings out all the colors
in a picture harmoniously. It was

"Angelus" in the Barye  collection.

SHATTERED IDOLS:
A Harsh and  Cruel  Transition
from RomanoG to Reality*
" My poor Lollal Is there nothing I can do
fm*you!" asked Margaret Hammond, pityingly, us slio bent over hor sick friend.
Both girls wero young, but In all otter
rcspectB no stronger contrast could beta*
iiginod
Leila Norton was a frail little creature,
with Huffy yellow hair, a fair complexion
uml buby-bluo oyes. Naturo seemed to have
lU'signed her to poso aa tho typo of those
women whose clinging dependence is so alluring to tho protecting tenderness of many
men.
Margaret Hammond, on the contrary, had
a quick, decided way of moving and speaking, wliich Indicated independence of char-
actor and opinions of her own. Her clear
■ gray oyes showed intellect and soul, while
they served to mako interesting a rather
. plain face. Bhe waa tall and slender, but
not graceful, and her chief beauty was -t
mass of wavy, dark brown hair.
Bhe was paying a visit to Leila, when the
latter became seriously ill, and Margaret at
onco installed herself as chief nurse.
" Tell mc," she repeated, "Is there nothing I can do for you!"
Leila turned towards her with eyes like
dewy forget-me-nots.
"Oh," sho sobbed, "If you would only
writo to.John."
" Certainly, and what shall I say!"
"Oh, i don't know. Say I am sick and I
send my love. It is such a pity you don't
know John.  Ho is so nice."
.Margaret smiled and said: "Ibelleve
Rirlaiisunllyadinlro tholr own lovers, hut
what do you mean hy 'nice*! Tell me
some of his characteristic traits.'1
Leila pouted. "Ho is not 'characters*
tic' at nil. He is just lovely, and he says
~\"i fiTCotost things about mo—"
-h-it i'finrso» hut I know about you, and
"And lam'-iRto find out is about him."

Taken, so I have nono to show you."
" Never mind, I have already painted him
to Buit myself, nnd how I am ready to
writo if you will dictate the letter."
11 Oh, make It a note, and you know what
to say." -J *'
So Margaret wrote as follows:
"My dbar Mn. lkbbinq: My friend, Mlsi
Norton, ha3 requested me to inform you ot
her sur ous illness, which deprives her of tbe
plcnsuvo of writing to you. We hope she will
tn; .ictter ina. few days, when she will speak
tor horsolf and express to you, moro eloquent*
ly than I can, tho love whioh sho wlsbes^ne to
tend.  Sincerely your friend's friend,
" MAHGAIIKT HA1IH0KD."
' This note was received by Mr. Leasing in
u Wen tern city, and tbe return mail brought
to Leila a letter overflowing with sympathy
ami lovo. Uo sent kind regards to Miss
Hammond, and begged that she would bo
his friend also, and write to hia dally during Miss Norton's illness.
(jnitc a correspondence followed, for the
fair invalid was suro "John" would bo un*
happy if ho did not know tbe details pf each
day's convalescence, but in the course ot a
week or two bor health waa fully restored,
and aftor an affectionate farewell, Margaret
returned to her own home.
hev illness, und It Is a pleasure to mo lhat I
can again servo ber and you.
"She is quite well and time has touched her
lightly.
"She sympathizes with you in tho loss ot
your wife, and sho was pleased to hoar of you
onco more; She has continued to livo at tlie
old lio ino in her ifcuol sunny, light-hearted
fashion, and she and I aro as 'great friends' as
wo were 'in days agone.'
"My namo is the only thing about mc whleh
time fs powerless to change.
"Very truly yours,
'•MAHOAnET HAMMOND."
Bhe sent tho letter with a grim feeling of
satisfaction, and tried hard to convince herself that sho did not look for an nnswer, but
the reply camo promptly and ran as follows:
"MY Dkar Miss Hammond: I can not comprehend how It was thut I so signally failed to
innlto myself understood,
"It lo of yourself I wish to know. Your
breezy letters attracted mo long ago, and your
persistent way of Ignoring yourself has piqued
my curiosity,
' Will you not be a Mend to me for my own
sakof Very truly yours,
"Jobs Lessiko."
Margaret's feelings were a mixture of
triumph and Interest.
Letter nfter letter went to and fro. John
received nnti read each ono with relish,
soliloquizing: "A plucky little woman, lots
of grit, rosy checks, I expect, and snapping
liliu'k eyes." Whilo Margaret read hia
epistles with no less Intorest, and tho
"ideal'' lover hlddenwltliln hor heart letter
by letter assumed the name of John Leasing.
At lastlto wrote that he was coming East
and would bo at her home upon a certain
dnv,
lt wns liko tho hiss of tho Princo upon tho
lips of the Sleeping Beauty I The "Ideal"
lover, awoke. Ho roso to his full manly
height, his tender brown eyes lost their look
of dreaminess, his handsomo boarded face
beaming with expression, and Margaret
prepared to meet him.
She lingered tho piano with a caressing
touch, und dreamed of playing accompaniments for "him." Bho brought out her
favorito books with tho belief that they
were "his" favorites also.
Slio had placed a bouquet of flowers upon
the piano, and was about to go upstairBto
change her dull gray morning gown foru
moro becoming garment with a dash of
color, when a man was ushered Into the
parlor.
Hearing footsteps she turned around, nnd
from her sereno height of "five feet five"
sho'looked down upon a polished bald putc,
decorated with a lambrcquin-liko fringe of
tawny red hair. Then the details of watery
bluo eyes, a wide mouth bristling with a
scrubby mustache, ond a short, fat flguro
forced themselves upon hor.
"Well! what is lt you wlshl" sho asked,
politely.
"I want to see Miss Harcnret Hammond."
"I am Miss Hammond."
Ho quailed beneath the calm questioning
gazo of her clear eyes, nnd lost his usual
suavity of manner.
" If you aro, you might ask mo to sit
down.   I am John Lcssiug."
"Oh, nol I mean, yes I sit downi'I beg
your pardon."
" As you didn't know me," said ho, seating himself, "I suppose I am not the
sort of a looking fellow you took me for. If
so, I can return tho compliment."
"Thanks. You certainly exceed my expectations in many ways. Did you liavo a
pleasant trip East!"
"Oh, yes, pleasant enough. Had fine
weather all tho way through."
" It has been a delightful autumn."
The visible barrier of strange faces hnd
alienated and paralyzed their minds.
They sat and solemnly prosod the drear*
iest com uionplaces for a few minutes, when
John suddenly remembered "a business engagement," aud departed.
Ho walked thoughtfully to the hotel,
went to his room, throw himself into un
arm-chair and began to whistle dolefully
and out of timo something wliich an imaginative car might recognize as "The Girl I
Left Behind Mo." Finally ho broko off
with a total disregard of tho keynote, nnd
exclaimed:
"By Jovo I an ugly old mold 1"
As for poor Margaret, she vushed up-stalrs
and cried ovor tho ruins of her wrecked romance as heartily as though she had been
ten yours younger.
Although thoy nover saw each other
ngnin, Margaret always hated John Less-
ing, for at his hands the winsome lover ot
her dreams had met a cruel death.-Lillian
HYm'rT, fit Boston Budget.
\
How many changes take place in ten1
vcars t Not only those caused by death, but
tho inevitable changes bf life. Youth Is
transformed into maturity, and how many
of its loves and friendships are discarded as
outgrown garments.
But the friendship of Margaret and Leila
has withstood the test of time, though the
lovo of Leila and John hu long been a dream
of the past.
Leila's heart now thrills with other hopes,
nud sho is soon to bo a happy bride. Bho is
making a visit to Margaret-tho last ono beforo her marriage. She is hut little changed,
has still the same winning, childlike face
nud figure.
Margaret has becomo thinner, a few
threads of gray gleam through her beautiful hair, and her mannerwith strangers has
a touch of primness. Sho hai many friends,
but Is Btill unmarried.
" Leila," sold sho one day, "what became
of John Lcssingi"
•• I believo he went farther West. How
strange his name soundsl I have not
thought of blm for yean, and we were onco
so devoted to each other. Housed to sing
.nc such a pretty song about Thine eyes

nnd just there he always kissed ms. Poor
follow l he felt dreadful when I broke the
engagement,   Ho said he could never love
nj-uiii, but hero comet tho postman,  1 wonder If ho hu a letter for me from Clarence."
Thero proved to be one, and Leila was
soon so absorbed In lt that sho did not notico
Mnrguret was also reading a letter.
Presently Leila looked up, with a smllo of
eutisilcd vanity, and started with surprise
to sou tlio expression of Margaret's faco. i
"What is Uf" sho uked.
"Listen," said Margaret; "toll letter is
i rum John Leasing!"
"Mt Dkah Miss Hammond: Pardon the liberty I tako ln addressing you, but once you
ailed tho part of a friend to mo and eonvlnced
tno that you havo a warm heart.
"Do you not remember that about ton years
uro you wrote me a numbor ot bright letters

"You and sbo were great friends In those
days, and I havo often wondered what bu be.

Margaret raised her oyes all glowing wltb
light. "Only think," shosild, softly, "ho
still remembers I"
. "Yob," simpered Leila, "he said lin could
never forgot me. When you write to him
about mo don't tell him I am going to be

prices of diamonds may bo suid never to

for ton years and resold to tho dealer for
ninety per cent, of its original value. All
reputable dealers soil diamonds with thut

to cover the wear of tho gold or oilier material In whtch the stones uro set. This arrangement accounts for tho largo trade in
diamonds among tho poor ob woll ns lhc

which aftor a year's wearing Is as readily

A  HAUNTED GALLERY.

Screaming Queen,
Hore, says a writer In All the Tear Round,
is the mysterious haunted gallery connecting tho old "Queen's apartments" with the
royal chapel. Tho gallery Is haunted, U.is
said, by tlie shrieking ghost of Queen Cnlli*
orlno Howard. Tho Queen was a fascinating, deceitful, delightful llttio creature, who
had boen sadly neglected in hor youth nud
corrupted by debasing companionship, hut
full of tho delight of life and shrinking sensitively from evory touch of pain. Yost i'i'.
day shu had been tho petted toy of hor cruel
husband; to-day sho wu doomed to the tearful rate that awaited Hurry's discarded
Wives. In tho horror of hor position, sur-.
rounded by rough and brutal soldiers of
the King's guard, she fouud a momentary
chanco of escape, nnd rushing through the
long gallery ran to seek her husband, who
was ut that moment hearing mass in tho
chapel, to cling to his knees, to soften with
hor tonrs that heart of adamant. The guards
nt their utmost speed followed tho poor, distracted creature. Just as Bho reached tlio
King's closet they overtook hor ond dragged
her back, hoi* frenzied screams resounding
through tho palace. Tho gallery Is now
used u a kind of lumber room, but still lho
shrieks of tho agonized Queon nro to bc
heard at UmoB. Anyhow, ln Ernest Lntv'n
interesting volume, "Hampton Court in
Tudor Times," thero is rccont testimony to
that effect.

orr tlm lEiieiiN.
The sir. Michigan, of tho New
Westminster and Portland steamship
llne, arrived this morning about ten
o'clock with a general cargo consigned
to the following: Brunette. Sawmills
Co., 100 packages; W. N. Draper, 113;
H. Harvey, 30; W. McColl, 100, Mc*
Laron-Ross Lumber Co., 42; Mounce
Bros., 35; Royal City Planing Mills
Co., 35. The bulk of tho Michigan's
cargo was for Rock Harbor. On the
trip from Victoria to Nanaimo Monday night she ran upon Enterprise
reef, oil'the mouth of Plumper's Pass.
Fortunately there was scarcely any
swell on at the time and no wind, so
that bIio remained quite steady until
tho riso of the tide, which eventually
floated her oil' none tho worse for her
vory unpleasant oxporienco. It is not
thought that any damago has boen
dono to her hull, as she mado no water
and apparently is as sound as over.
Damon and Fvtlilas.
The tine play,"Damon and Pythias,"
was given last night at the opera house
by the Keeno Theatre Co. Tho audience was very small, not more tlinn
fifty parsons being down stairs, and
the gallery thinly populated by rather
a more orderly audience than figured
there the previous night. Tho acting
of Mr. William Lloyd as Damon was
perfect, and elicited unbounded applause. He is without doubt tho best
actor that has ever played here. Tho
closing scene in the last act, where thu
faithful Pythias is being led to the
block to suffer death for his friend
Damon, and the entrance of tho lattor
just in timo to save Pythias; their
greeting and tho magnanimity of the
tyrant Dionysius in granting Damon
his life, was grandly done, and brought
out the full powers of Messrs. Lloyd
and Hillyer. The play deserved a full
house, as it wus a sterling company
nnd worthy of the best audience Westminster could produce.
Bound lo Have Thru.,
Victoria is determined not to lose
the rice mills, or the other industries
which are contemplated in connection
with them, and the ratepayers will be
naked to give & bonus to the Victoria
Rice Mills Company, which has been
considering n proposition to remove to
Vancouvor. The firm proposes to
erect in connection with its rice mill
a modern flouring mill with a capacity
of 100 barrels, and sugar refinery with
a capacity of 50 to 100 barrels a day.
Mayor Grant has interviewed the firm,
and offers on behalf of the council aud
corporation of Victoria, exemption
from taxation and freo water for
manufacturing purposes for a number
of years, a bonus of §10,000 if the
flouring mill is in operation at tho end
of eighteen months, and a bonus of
^10,000 if a sugar refinery of tho above
capacity shall be in operation within
three years. It will now remain with
the ratepayers to sanction these terms.
Tho niatter will be brought before tho
council to-night.
Enterprising Farmers.
Messrs Anderson & Page, two enterprising Nova Sootians, who arrived
in this province last spring, have purchased 320 acres of magnificent prairie
farming land at Riverside, and will
enter into thorough-bred stock raising,
and mixed farming, on an extensivo
scale. They have lately received a
carload of Peroheron horses and Hoi-
stein-Friesian cattle, all pedigree animals. The horses wero imported direct from France, and ere intended
for breeding purposes. Among the
cattle are a cow and bull which cost
Messrs Anderson & Page 91000 each,
tho bull being only 4 months old at
timo of purchase. Next spring two
mors carloads of horses nnd cattlo will
be imported, nil for breeding and
dairying purposes. Tho 81,000 cow
has a record of 21 lbs. l\ ozs. of
butter for one week's milking" Messrs
Anderson & Page expect to hnvo 1G0
acres of land under crop next year. A
considerable proportion of which will
be in root crops for cattle feed.
Dlsconrtenns Treatment.
Passengers booked for Westminster,
from the east, are entitled to a Uttle
more courtesy and attention from the
C. P. R. than is usually meted out to
them. Tho Pacifio Express on Monday
was three hours late, arriving at tho
Junction between 4:30 and 5 o'clock
in the afternoon. On this train were
about a dozen through passengers for
Westminster, a number of theso being
ladies and children, who wero completely fatigued nfter so long a journey.
No train was waiting at the Junction
to convey these people to their destination, only nine miles distant,and thoy
were obliged to huddle together in the
dirty and uncomfortable waiting room
for three long hours, when tho evening express came along from Vancouver and brought them to this city. The
0, P. R. is not noted for its courtesy
to the passengers to and from tho royal
city, but this last affair is a little worse
than usual, and if the company wore
to consult its own interests it would
strain a point to prevent a recurrence
of tho samo.

The Salmon Packers.
Tho British Columbia salmon can*
nerd paid their respects to tha premior
last week. Incidentally the Chinese
Restriction Act camo up, Sir John
asking tho views of tho delegation on
tho subject. Tho canners snid that
tho great desideratum of tha Pacific
province was cheap labor, and that
this could be obtained to a certain extent by modifying the provisions of
tho act, but they acknowledged that
publio sentiment in the province was
against any change. The deputation
urged upon Sir John tho desirability
of admitting mining machinery free of
duty, and to this request tho premier
said the government wob always willing to consider nny application of the
kind on it* merits. Tho term "mining machinery" was a broad one, and
by a strained interpretation even a ten-
penny nail might ba held to lie Included in it. Tho delegation was therefore to furnish a specific Btatemont
with regard to the kind of mining
machinery it was proposed should
como in duty free, and then the government would consider it.

Tho exhibition and concert advertised for somo time past, comes off tonight nt 8 o'clock in the opera houae,
and tho pronators of tho enterprise
hopo for a littlo more public patronage
than they have been treated lo in past
ontortaitimonts, Tho sterling merits
of the entertainment neod not furthor
bo descanted upon here, but it only ro*
mains to be said that those who go to
the opera house to-night will not regret it. The tickets havo gone off
woll, and a good audionco may safely
be expected. The complaint mado on
former occasions of the house
being "as cold as a barn" will be
completely remedied to-night, aB the
house will be comfortably warmed before the doors aro thrown open, and
thoao who attend can enjoy the fun
with eoino degree of comfort. Humor
is apt to fall fiat in a chilly atmosphere, and tho "flow of soul" ia npt to
be of the "molasses in January"
order when a draught is permitted to
mingle with it. A glance at the programmes destributcd to-day around
town ought to tempt many to the show.
Light Sentences nnd Crime.
Some timo before the last assizes a
man named John Bradley was committed for trial for stealing goods from
Ellard's store, and on being brought
before the county court judge he
elected to be tried at the assizes. At
tho last assizes ho was convicted and
sentenced to one year in gaol. Since
then Bradley has proved himself au
unruly prisoner and has given the gaol
oflicials a great deal of trouble. He
formed a conspiracy, in which a number uf other prisoners wore implicated,
to break jail, but through the vigilance
of the prison officials the plot was discovered and frustrated. A few days
ago Bradley was brought up before
Judge Bola in the county criminal
court, thus putting off his trial for six
mouths, with the object of escaping a
heavy sentence
The above is an excellent practical
illustration of the effect produced un
tho minds of tho criminal classes by
the exceedingly light sentences imposed for serious offences at the last
assizes, and it is a noteworthy fact that
offences of a serious nature havo been
conspicuously absent from the police'
docket since tho imposition of heavy
sentences by the county court judge
in tho criminal court.
Tiic flattery Heeling.
Thero was a very slim meeting of
No. 1 Battery, B. O. G. A., last night
at the drill shed. A few of tho mon
turned out and passed in their accoutrements, after which a meeting was
held in the armory. It was finally decided, after considerable discussion,
that Lieutenant Mowat should recommend the following gentlemen for promotion to Lieut,-Colonel Holmos on
Thursday: For captain, J. S. 0. Fraser;
for 1st lieutenant, W. J. Corbett; for
2nd lieutenant, E. A, Port. The names
met with the approval of the members
of the battery present. Some other
names were proposed, but some declined to act and others wore not approved of. Lieutenant Mowat was
much annoyed at tho small attendance
last night, and said that there appeared to be only about a dozen men in tho
battery who cared a straw whether it
sank or swam. If tho battery wero to
go to pieces here it would almost certainly bo transferred to Vancouver,
whero there was plenty of material and
enthusiasm to form two batteries. No.
1 Woatminster Battery is thu senior
artillery corps of tho provinco, aud it
would be au eternal disgrace to this
city to allow it to die. Ho believed
that the beat way to do was to thoroughly reorganize the battery, drop out
all tho deadhead, holiday soldiers in it,
viz.: those firesido heroes who join to
get tho clothing and cut capers on sunny days arrayed in artillery uniforms,
to the great admiration of "tho girls,"
and who never show up when any work
is to be done, and whose last idea is of
ovor turning up to fight. And aftor
thoso butterflies had been eliminated,
to recruit the ranks with new men,
plenty of whom are coming into the
city every day. It was n bad thing to
allow thoso Falstnffd to imagine that
tho battery could not got along without
them nnd their lacquered boots and
linen collars on parade; what ought to
be done was to order all such ta turn
in thoir clothing if they missed more
than a certain number of drills. Theae
sentiments wero shared by all the gun*
ners present. Lieut, Mowat signified
his intention of resigning hts commission, which was heard with regret hy
all the men,
Lieut.-Oolonel Holmes will inspect
all arms, clothing, accoutrements nnd
stores belonging to the battery tomorrow.
The Dcanltrul Delaware
The new steamer Delawaro arrived
this morning and tied up nt Mathers
& Milligan'a wharf. Before coming
into tho wharf she executed several
manoeuvres iu mid-stream tlmt gavo
thoso who were looking on, u good idea
of hor power. When backing sho runs
faster than sovoral of tho nver craft
oan run forward. Her appearance
viewed from the dock was very hand*
some and she seemed to go through
the water at a high rato of speed with
the greatest ease. Sho ts painted
white throughout and tho uppor works
are fine lined with narrow bands of
color. As soon as she got alongside
the wharf a number of persons went
aboard and examined her _ thoroughly.
Her freight or lower dook is roomy and
capable of holding a very large quantity of merchandise. With the dock
cleared one could not help noticing tho
groat breadth of beam of tho steamer.
In tho engine room, which is fitted up
on the latest principles, the stranger is
astonished at tho powor indicated in
tlio size of the engines. Tho-/ are the
latest developments of marine engineering as applied to stern-wheelers,
and look strong onough to drivo a
Cunarder. The wheel was evidently
built to Btand any amount of wear and
tear; it is constructed in the most
substantial manner with broad, powerful floats, bound aud bolted with iron
in every part. This wheel is different
in construction from any other on the
rivor. The overlap, grated deck is
carried out to the axle of tha wheel on
both Bides so that the engineers can
attend to it at any time while the vessel is running at full speed. Upstairs
the steamer is fitted out in elegant
fashion. The fote cabin is tastefully
finished in hard wood,and is kept comfortable by menus of a large stove.
Tho dining saloon is large, airy and
well lighted. The furnishings of this
room will be in keeping with the rest
of the vessel's equipment, and the
saloon will be ablo to accommodate a
considerable number of diners, The
after or Indies' cabin is beautifully
finished and is upholstered in crimson
plush. Oil' the dining saloon are the
mate's, engineer's, purser's and other
officers rooms; there are also aeveral
state-rooms for passengers. In the
foro cabin are tho bar and ticket offloe.
The Delawaro is tho fastest boat ontho
Fraser river, and will bo, when completed, ono of the most beautiful,
comfortable and commodious steamers
ou the Pacific coast. She is a valuable
addition to the river fleet, and ox*
perienced mariners say sho iB alt right
and predict for her a groat future.
