THE WORST ON  RECORD.
San Francisco, Oct. 18.—Probably
one of the most horrible suicides on
record took place in this oily this
morning. The victim was Milo Bid*
buaich, a cook, 35 years of age, who
for a long time has been suffering from
the disease of the intestines known as
periti-nitiB. About 5 o'clock the sufferer began pacing the floor of his
room seemingly in great agony; sud*
denly, drawing an ordinary penknife,
he cut a great gash in his abdomen,
thon cut out his bowels, slashed them
to pieces, and threw them about the
room. The maddened mau expired
shortly afterwards.

San Francisco, Deo, 18.—Edmund
O'Connor, and his wifo, Sarah O'Connor, was arrested at 5 o' clock this
morning, charged with the murder of
Henry Armstrong, step-father of Mrs.
O'Connor. Armstrong was shot dead
in his house in South San Francisco
about 9 o'olock lut night, It was 3
o'clock this morning before the police
wore made aware of the event Sarah
O'Connor had her step-father arrested
two years ago for au attempted criminal assault. There was enmity between
the two ever after, and it was increased
about a week ago by the marriage of
tho step-daughter to O'Connor, who is
jointly charged with the murder. The
woman had some property, whioh naturally became her husband's on their
marriage, but which Armstrong
thought should have been given to
him. These incidents led up to the
tragedy of last night, O'Counor and
his wife went to Armstrong's house,
where all becamo intoxicated, and the
liquor brought the feud to a crisis.
The past events were brought up and
all came to blows, almost everything
portable in the plaoe being used as
a weapon. In the midst of all a shot
wub tired and Armstrong fell dead.
O'Connor says his wife did the shoot*

Editor Columbian.—Sir: With your
permission, I would like to point out
what appears to me an urreosonable ar*
rangement for a rising eity.
During my recent rambles through
New Westminster, I noticed costly and
substantial sidewalks lately completed in
a locality having no dwellings on either
side, ner any kind of terminus but a
swamp and the river Fraser.
Iu my peregrinations up over the steep
hill—a trying walk for a corpulent individual—on passing, and arriving at the
dwellings of a considerable population,
and where many pedestrians passed un
aud down, I imagine necessarily to ana
from th* ir houses of business—here there
were no sidewalks of any kind; and during an unp e sant thaw, after fio t and
Buow,uobody would think of visit ng suoh
a part unless compelled to do so.
In a wealthy and prosperous city like
New Westminster, it seem: '..'■accountable why such a state of affuira can be.
Yours, ka., Rambler.

The imperceptible evaporation of
miasmatic organisms and bacteria, ao*
cording to the researches of eminent

identified in diphtheritica! exudations.
Thoy are of three kinds, the chromo*

An important meeting of members
of the stonemasons and bricklayers
union was held last uight in Philharmonic hall and a death blow was given
to a certain phase of local Chinese
cheap labor by a resolution passed,
whereby the members of the above
Union will refuse to work on any building where Chineie are employed.
Contractors will be given three months'
notice from January first, 1890, of the
resolution, which will go into effect
April 1st, 1890, It is estimated that
$25,000 a year ia paid out to Chinese
hod carriers, and mortar mixers,
which fs virtually lost tothe oity.
While it may be thought that there is
a scarcity of white hod carriers, eto.,
a little encouragement with a prospect
of steady work would induce many to
come here. Vancouver, no doubt,
owes some of its prosperity tothe ab*
senoe of this sort of Cliinese labor, and
in oities on Puget Sound a Victorian is
struck at onoe by the absence of Chinese working on buildings. A good
beginning has been made whioh should
bear fruit.—Tntsday's Times.

AFRICAN   SYNDICATE.
Brussels, Dec. 19.—A syndicate of
Frenoh and Belgian capitalists has
been formed for the purpose of building a railroad from the Lower Congo
to the Frenoh Congo region, and for
developing the rich copper district of
Matanga. Engineers will shortly be
sent to make the necessary surveys,
THE CiVBNDISH SQUARE SCANDAL.
London, Dec. 19.-At the Old Bailey to-day, in tbe case of editor Parke,
of the North Lotidon Press, oharged
with libel in accusing Earl Euston of
being one of the principals in the Cavendish Square scandals, Mr. Parke
pleaded that the alleged libel was true,
and its publication was for the publio
benefit. In view of this unexpected
plea the prosecution applied for time
to consider aud decide upon a course
uf action, and the case was adjourned
until next session of tbe court,
A FIENDISH PLOT.
London, Dec. 19.—It is reported
that the police have received information of a plot to blow up a ooal laden
vessel from Hamburg or Bremen. The
gas companies bave lately found it
difficult to obtain coal from English
mines on account of the boycott to
which they are subjected, when coal
is imported in German bottoms
and immediately unloaded by German
crews. Unable to gain access to theae
foreigners, the strikers, it is understood, have determined to make auch
an example of one of the vessels as to
dtter shipowners and sailors from
abroad eugagtng in the business again.
PORTUGUESE  CLAIMS,
Liverpool, Deb. 19.—In view of
the strength of the republican party in
Portugal, and the encouragement it has
lately taken from the revolution in
Brazil, the monarchical party ia afraid
to give the people at large any additional cause of discontent with the
ministry, and the general temper of
tho nation is reported to be so set in
favor of maintaining the African
claims at all hazards that anything that
should run directly counter to it would
make trouble. If England were to
propose arbitration, it is believed here
that the Portuguese government would
probably accept this solution of the
difficulty. But the event was not
quite certain, and Lord Salisbury seems
disinclined to make any concessions
-juat now. The governments of France
and Spain ate giving their moral support to the Portuguese position in
Africa, and this makes the situation
more difficult for England to handle.
France, indeed,- ia extremely jealous
of England's authority in Africa, and
would not be displeased to see it curtailed of something of its predominating importance. France's refusal in
the anti slavery conference, at Brussels, to acquiesce in the British proposal concerning the right to search
ships suspected of being slavers, was
due to the suspicion that in times of
war this privilege, if granted, would
he made the occasion of military espionage iu order to discover whether
ships sailing under Frenoh colors carry
arms and ammunition, and what plaoe
they are destined for.
VALUABLE BONDS.
London, Deo. 19.—The subscriptions to the five per oent. Mexican
government gold bonds, issued for the
construction of the Tehuantepeo railroad, the amount of issue being £2,-
700,000 sterling, of which only £'!,*
350,000 sterling was offered by Selig-
mat) Bros., of London and Dresden,

subscriptions amounted to over sixteen
million pounds sterling, that is, the
the loan was subscribed nearly twelve

NEW TRIAL,
Dublin, Deo. 19.—The IrisJt Times,
recently mulcted in the sum of £1,000
by a Limerick jury in the osbb of Matthew Harris ag-inst that paper for
libel bused on an article describing the
plaintiff as an invincible, to-day waa
granted a new trial, the judges de*
oiding the damages excessive.
REVOLUTIONARY DOCUMENTS.
Vienna, Doc. 19.—The TagUatt
says a number of proclamations addressed to tho Russians in Galacia,
were found in the possession of a man
disguised aa a peasant, who waa arrested at Rodwoloczaki, in that province. Letters compromising many
members of the Russian churoh, were
also found ou him.
A SMART   LAWYER TRAPPED.
London, Deo. 18.—A summons has

London, Dec. 18.—The bark Jenby
has been wrecked on the rocks at
Holyhead, and eleven of the crew were

WILL ENRAGE THE  YANKEES.
London, Dec. 18.—Some very interesting statistics have been presented on
paper on the accumulated wealth of
the kingdom, and were read by Robert
tuition, the famous statistician, before
the Royal Statistical society. He
places the wealth, in round numbers,
at ten billion pounds, giving England
£3.0.8 a hesd; Scotland £2.4.3, and
Ireland £0.0.3. Oompnrii'g the three
richest nations of the world, Mr.
Giffen gave the wealth per head aa
follows: Groat Britain, £290; France,
£190; United Statos, £160.
DUTCH DIAMOND-CUTTERS IDLE.
Amsterdam, Deo. 18.—It is estimated that nearly 7,000 diamond cutters are out of work here, owing to
the depressed atate of trade. A largo
meeting of those craftsmen yeaterday
resolved to endeavor to negotiate with
tho capitalists for advances to the
smaller workers so as to enable them
to carry on the business. Should this
scheme fail it is proposed tu transfer
the trade to London.
CONTRACTOR VS. COMPANY.
Montreal, Deo. 18.—In the case of
John Ross, contractor, against the
0. P. R. for $200,000, claimed as
extras in the construction of tbe Lake
Superior seotion of the 0. P. R. and
an offset olaim by the company making another against the plaintiff for $1,-
000,000, alleging that the engineers
and others under the plantiff, by ez- ■
travagant overcharges, caused the company that muoh loss, President Van
Borne denied that the company had to
pay 60 per cent more tban Ross' con* .
tract figures for the construction, and
that hu report to the oompany adverse
to the continuation of the line scroti
to Vancouver Island to "Victoria was a .
loss to the company of about $25,000,
000, as the route was through valuable coal lands, which, in their capsoity
to supply the company with fuel,"
would have boen worth more than that i
to the general purpose of the oompany. ,
That part of the Lake Superior seotion
constructed by the plaintiff waa 'the
most scandalous piece of road he had
overseen. If he had constructed a
hundred miles the 0. P. R, would
have been ruined. There was cross-
mismanagement, haste and exorbitant
charges. If Mr. Abbott or Mr. J. A,
Roas had done the work, the company
would have saved between $3,000,000
and $5,000,000.
BLOOD POR BLOOD ATONES.
Paris, Ky., Dec. 18.—Pat Hunt
was hanged here this morning for the
murder of James O. Nee, on February
27,1889, during a quarrel in a aaloon.
The prisoner denied his guilt to the hut
and aaid he died innocent of the crime :
imputed to him. Wheu told thst his
wife was in the penitentiary for murdering Riohsrd Thomas, he confessed
that it waa he who killed him.
sullivan's new opera.
London, Dec. 18.—All the critics
are in love with Gilbert and Sullivan's
new opera. "The Gondoliers." The
Post says: The story is amusing, the
music in every way delightful and fascinating, the acting is perfeot, and the
pleasures to the eye are made as near
as possible equal to those offered to the ,
ear, so that there ii every reason to
congratulate the author and composer
upon their several and united efforts
and the publio upon the opportunity it
now possesses for the enjoyment of a
delightful form of entertainment.
The Chronicle's opinion is: There ia ,
so much that is attractive in "The
Gondoliers" that there can bo no hesitation in prophesying for it the extensive and lasting popularity bestowed
upon most of the members of the same
family. The Times says: If a position among the best of joint author's
production be ultimately accorded to
the new work, as will probably be the
case, it will be due loss to sny remarkable originality or interest in the plot
than to the dialogue, whioh is iu Gilbert's best style, and to the bright and
sparkling music, some of which is irresistible in its melodious gaiety,
while is all, as usual, spontaneous, re*
fined, and thoroughly characteristic of
the composer.
UTE CANADIAN SEWS.
Queen's University, Kingston, Ont,
has passed ita fiftieth year of existence
and the event is being appropriately
celebrated.
Roports from Stanstead, Que., from
sources favorable to Lebaron, the equal
rights candidate, represent the situation aa uot very cheerful for Colby.
The result, they claim, ia anything but
a dead sure thing.
Rev. Dr. Williams, general superintendent of the Methodist church in
Canada, died Tuesday, aged 72. John
.-Ethurhuld Williams was born in
Carmarthen, Wales, Deo. 19, 1$17.
He removed to Canada in 1833, was
ordained a ministor of the Methodist
ohuroh in 1860, eleoted president of
the London conference in 1874, and
wss joint representative of the general
conference of the Methodist Episcopal
ohuroh of the United States in 1876,
aud was president of the United general conference in 1883 for the unification of the various branches of the
Methodist ohuroh in Canada, He was
joint representative at the Centennial
conference of the Methodiat churoh of
the United States in 1884, and in 1885
was appointed general superintendent
of the Methodist churoh of Csnada.
Victoria University gave him the degree of D. D. in 1877.
Two years ago an apprentice in a
oigar factory in Montreal quarreled
with his employer and wu ordered
out of the place. Accepting this as a
dismissal, he sought and secured employment in another factory, when his
late employer asked him to come back,
and un his refusing to do so, summoned
him before the recorder, who ordered
him to roturn or go to jail for three
days. He appealed by certiorari to
the supreme court, and after noarly
two years, judgment was given against
him. In the meantime, he bad bo-
come an expert cigar maker, earning
$10 a week, aud was besides engaged
to a young lady and soon to be married. If he went back to his former employer he would have to work
for $2 50 a week and give up his marriage for the present. Acting upon
the advice of his oounsel, he wont to
jail for three days, and is now a free
The case is a somewhat roman
tic one and interesting from
point of view.

The equal right, part-, an orgaiza-
tion that grew from and espouses the
agitation for disallowance by the
Dominion of the Jesuits estates legislation in Quebec, haa met with a
signal defeat in that province in the
return, for Stanstead county, by an
overwhelming majority, of Mr.
Charles S. Oolbyover the equal
rights candidate, Le Baron. Stanstead was Mr. Colby's constituency
at the general election, when he was
returned by a considerable majority
as a supporter of Sir John Macdonald. On the present occasion he
was seeking re-election, having been
recently called to the Dominion
cabinet to occupy the position of
president of tbe privy counoil. Stanstead is a Protestant constituency
in tbe province of Quebec, and Mr.
Colby, while disapproving of the action of tbe Quebeo legislature in the
Jesuits estates matter, had publicly
expressed himself as against disallowance, on ths principle that it
would be an infringement of provincial rights. The equal rights peo
pie, therefore, had a blaok mark
against him. Sir John, by calling
Mr. Colby to his oabinet, and thus
opening the constituency, precipitated a courfliot in the enemy's
country, and the result has shown
that he shrewdly foresaw the issue.
The equal rights party put up their
candidate, and the contest was
fought solely on that question. Thi
despatches state that Mr. Colby has
been returned by a majority of
about 1,000, whioh is more than
twice the majority he secured over
his Liberal opponent at the general
eleotion. The equal righters, while
actuated to some extent by good abstract principles, must be convinced
that the publio verdict is against
them on the question of the property, not to say constitutionality,
of their measures. Mr. Colby, who
now takes his seat in the cabinet as
president of the council, is 62 years
of age, and is said to be a native of
Vermont and a graduate of Harvard.
Toronto has been exhibiting herself to the rest of tho Dominion in
no very bright light,   In these days
and in this country there should be
absolutely no  excuse  for intolerance of any kind, much less for the
intolerance of the political-religious
ruffians of both  the   Orange and
Catholic factions, who have  been
"going it" rather strongly in the
streets of Toronto lately.   Heading
the accounts of the disgraceful riot
ing, we learn that on  Friday night
the police had to interfere  to  put
down a gang of  roughs  who  had
organized anti-Catholic processions,
evidently  bent on  mischief.   On
Monday evening, the   tables  were
turned, and the   Orangemen  were
fiercely attacked  by another crowd
of toughs, who objected to  the admirers of King William celebrating
the closing bf the gates  of  Derry.
We regret these  two  affrays, because they serve to prove tbat Canada is not absolutely free from miserable ignorance and intolerance.   It
is high time that men on this  side
the Atlantic, at least, should learn
that life is too serious a  matter  to
pass in absurd and fruitless squabbles over the "Battle of the Boyne"
or the "Gunpowder Treason,"  both
very interesting subjects for academic disoussion, but' scarcely worth
quarreling over, seeing that we live
in a generation having some claim
to be considered  more  enlightened
than in the days of the "rack" or the
"penal laws."   Besides, the general
run of peaceable citizens care more
to-day for law and  ordor than for
the ruffianly zeal whioh says "What
does it matter about a few  broken
windows and heads so long as we
are fighting for the glorious oause of
the Protestant or Catholic religion I"
as the case may be,   But, whilst as
Canadians we feel somewhat ashamed of what has occurred in Toronto,
as British Columbians  we regard
with complacency the amicable relations existing in our own province
between all sorts and conditions  of
men.   Racial and religious intolerance have happily no foothold here,
and we are the better for it.   Here
Oatholio and Protestant live side by
•ike on the very best of terms, and
the day is yet very far distant when
the bigot, whatever  his  particular
intolerance, will be allowed  to proclaim the gospel of  brutality and
mob law in theae streets. It is to be
hoped that  summary measures will
be dealt out to the Toronto rioters
of both the  Orange and Catholic
factions.
ment, but he had not been in SiJ
beria very, long before even he was
compelled to realise tbe whole hor
ror of the system whioh js yearly
sending Russia's best manhood and
womanhood to the mines, We write
advisedly, for it is a notorious fact
so deeply is Russia steeped in revo
lutionary ideas tbat no man can
trust his neighbor. Officers in the
army and navy, nay the very suite
of the Ozar, are believed to be
affected more or less with Nihilism,
and whenever their imperial majesties go abroad in tbe streets, the
poople are commanded to keep within doors, and soldiers line tbe route.
Of the Czar truly may it be said,
"Uneasy lies the bead that wears
a crown." High officials, and men
bf distinction in the civil service,
the learned professions, and in fact
persons of all classes, are to be found
in the ranks of the disaffected. The
leaders are mostly men of attain
ments, Priuce Krapotkine has
been an aide-de-camp, aud an attache, yet he is to-day perhaps the
very best example of Nihilism. He
is a scientist of no mean distinction, and an able literary man, yet
he is the living exponent of the revolutionary party in Russia, has
proved the honesty of his views by
suffering imprisonment, and haa upon his escape from gaol gone into voluntary exile, only with the purpose
helping forward tbe revolution.
Every once and a while the secret
police succeed in unearthing a
fresh plot or conspiracy, and then a
batch of prisoners, tried in secrecy,
are hurried off to Siberia and lost to
the world. Meanwhile, silently but
surely, the revolution is gaining recruits from all classes of society, and
meanwhile, too, the authorities are
more determined than ever to repress all disaffection and to mete
out heavy punishment to the disobedient. Thus we beard of prisoners being shot down for the crime
of presenting a petition to the authorities, and the few survivors being put upon trial, one being hanged
from his sick bed. There can be
but one termination to this state of
things, and the longer its advent is
delayed, the more terrible will it be
when it does come. An empir*
whose rulers are at their wits' ends
to make receipts tally with expenditure, and who are unable to raise a
loan in the money markets, is in a
bad enongh fix, but these are the
least of the troubles which the Czar's
ministers have to face, and when
the time is fully ripe there must
como a terrible reaction against the
despotic oue-man rule of tyranny
and cruelly which has been the great
cause of the popularity of revolution
ary ideas in the empire of the Czars.
Soul short time ago we reprinted
(rom an exohange an Item  to the
effect that  the  efforts of George
Keenan by his writing! to ameliorate the condition  of  the  Russian
political exiles in Siberia had  been

The Portland Oregonian tells the
following pretty good yarn: In
making final proof before the United
States land office, Judge Guichard,
of Walla Walla, usually asks:
"Have you a family!" Most of
them answer in the affirmative, but
the other day he got hold of a man
who had the biggest family on record. "Have you a family I" said
the judge, as he pulled down his vest.
"Yes sir," said the man somewhat
confused. "What does it consist of I"
continuedthejudge. "Well,"said the
man, looking up towards the ceiling,
so as to refresh his mind and give a
true account, "a wife and twelve
ehildron, two married, a hired man,
a gang plough, a seeder, a Bain waggon, and a span of mules." "That's
enough," said the judge, with a
smile, and the settler got his final
papers without ana* further trouble.
The idea that women are the only
mortals that gaze at themselves in a
mirror may be quite generally accepted, but it is erroneous, says an
exchange. The average man is unable to resist the desire to take a
squint at himself. He may, and
often does, do it on the sly; but he
does it just the same, If any one
doubts the truth of this statement
let him catch the men as they step
into an elevator in any one of the
business blocks. The first thing a
man does after entering is to place
himself squarely before the reflector
and view his counterpart on the
other side of the glass. If caught
at it he usually turns quickly away
with a hang-dog expression of countenance ; or if a friend happens to
enter he at once engages him in conversation about the weather, business or some kindred topic. But
when a fellow has the elevator all
to himself he will stand and admire
himself as long as any of tho gentler
sex.
The late Mr. Iscariot was undoubtedly a very bad man—a selfish, untruthful and traitorous person, who did not hesitate, for a few
pieces of silver, to betray his Master
with a kiss. Mr. Wiman resembles
him in a good many respects; but is
evidently a worse man. Judas was
thoroughly base himself, and was
quite prepared to sell anything for
mOney. But there is no reason to
suppose he thought everyone else
was equally base. Mr. Wiman is
not only predared to act the part of
Judas towards the land of his birth;
but he seems to think that by holding out the possibility of obtaining
a few more cents a bushel for barley
and potatoes he can corrupt a whole
people. He seems to imagine that
because he is prepared, for a consideration, to play Jay Gould's game,
and betray Oanada with a kiss, the
people of Canada are just as base as
he is himself, and can be all bought
up by the glittering prospect of getting a few more dollars a year for
some of their products.—Halifax

GENERAL SHERIDAN.
A Condeneed Bidgra^bloat Sketch
of the FamOua Warrior.
General Philip Henry Sheridan was born at
Somerset, Perry County,' O., Harch 6,1881.
A few yean at the village school, followed
by servioe in the village store, furnished bis
education and training until a fortunate application to the Congressman of bis district
made bim in 1848 aeadetatWest Point He
should have been graduated in 1869, but a
year's suspension, the result' of a quarrel
with a fellow-student, transferred bim to
the class of 1853, in which he ranked thirty*
fourth among Its flfty-two members, He
was appointed a brevet Second Lieutenant
of Infantry July 1, 1858; in the following
year was assigned to tbe First Infantry, in
Texas, and on November 33,1854, received
his commission as Second Lieutenant of tbo
Fourth Inlantry. With the latter regiment
be sorved during the nsat six years in
Washington Territory and Oregon. In one
of General Scott's orders this mention of
him ta touted. '•April 38,1886, Brevet Lieu-
tenAnt-Cotonel B. J. Steptoe, Ninth Infantry,
commanding Companies A, E, F and I,
same regiment, and detachments of Company E First Dragoons, and Company L,
Third Artillery, in all two hundred men, at
the Cascades, W. T., repulsed the Indians
in their attack of tint place. The troops
landed undor fire, routing and dispersing
tbe enemy at every point * * » Seoond
Lieutenant Philip H. Sheridan, Fourth Infantry, Is especially mentioned tor his gal*
lantry."
Through the resignation- of Southern
officers and the creation'df new regiments
on the outbreak of the civil war, Sheridan
secured a First-Lieutenancy in March, 1861,
and May 14 ho was mode a Captain in the
Thirteenth regiment. The day before
Christmas he was appointed Quartermaster
on the staff of General Curtis, sommandmg
the army of Southwest Missouri. Being
recommended to the Governor of Michigan,
he was commissioned May 35, 1863, aa
Colonel of tbe Becond Michigan cavalry,
then near Corinth, and took part with lt in
Elliot's raid against the railroad. July lho
fought a brilliant battle at Booneville, and
his appointment as Brigadlor-Ueneral of
volunteers was dated from the action.
During the autumn of 1862 he was transferred'to Kentuoky, and there received
command of tbe Eleventh Division of the
Army of the Ohio, under Buell. At the battle of Perry ville be maneuvered his division
with conspicuous skill and effect, and at the
bloody battle of Murfreesboro he held the
key-point for several hours in the flrst day's
fighting, displaying superb tactical skill
and the greatest gallantry. On tho recommendation of Rosccrans, who had succeeded
Buell, he was made Majdr-General of volunteers.
Advancing from Murfreesboro undTulla-
homa across the Cumberland Mountain**
and the Tennessee, Sheridan, September 10
Md»,distiuguished himself again in the
battle at Chlcxamauga with Bragg. At
the storming of Lookout Mountain Sheridan's division was the flrst to cross tbe
crest This battle waa tbe culminating
point of his career to the West.
In tho spring of '64 Sheridan took com*
maud of the cavalry corps of the Army of
tho Potomac, under Grant, and when tbe
May campaign opened he pioneered the
army on its path through the wilderness,
and thonce to Spottsylvania. May 7 be
fought a battle at Todd's Tavern, and two
days later he made a cavalry expedition
within tbe enemy's lines, dashing upon the
outworks of Richmond Itself, when he took
a hundred prisoners. He returned to tbe
army May 34, having destroyed many miles
of railroad track and recaptured 8T5 Union
soldiers on tbelr way to Libby Prison.
During June and July Sheridan was engaged in a number of minor battles, serving
.with tha greatest distinotion. Toward the
end of July he moved nortb of tho Jamos to
aid General Hancock's operation* at'Deep
Bottom, aad July 28 ho was engaged at
Dat-bytown.
On the 7th of August Grant put Sheridan
In command of tbe Middle Military Division,
and for six weeks he was kept on the defensive near Harper's Ferry, his forces opposing thoso of General Early. September
10, however, as Early's forces had been
diminished, he crossed the Aupequon, and
aftor a severe battle completely defeated
tho Confederates. Tbe next day, at Grant's
recommendation, President Lincoln appointed Sheridan a Bndadier-General In the
rogular army. Pursuing Early up tho valley turnpike, Sheridan again defeated him
and forced blm to withdraw to Brown's
Gap. He then withdrew, and, at tbe request of Secretary Stanton for consultation,
-wont to Washington October 16, On returning, when at Winchester, he heard the
noise of battle a down miles away.
Early, aided by a fog, had surprised the
left of the Union army, audi in Sheridan's
absence, had driven it back beyond Middle-
town. With an escort of only twenty men
Sheridan rode to the scene of battle, and, in
a lull of a few hours, succeeded in rallying
his forces. He then ordered an advance,
aud swept the enemy from the field in one
of the most overwhelming routo of the war.
Congress, in recognition of bis services,
passed a vote of thanks to blm and his
troops for the "briUiant series of victories
in tho valley."
Sheridan was alao appointed by tbe
President a Major-General in the regular
army "for tbe personal gallantry, military
skill and just confidence in tbe courage and
patriotism of your troops, displayed by you
on the 1Mb dayof October."
February 37, 1865, General Sheridan
moved bis cavalry, 10,009 strong, up the
valley to Waynesboro, whero, March 2, it
overthrow tbe remnant of Esriy's force.
In the final campaign, Sheridan, by a fine
tactical movement, entrapped and com*
pletely routed Pickett and Johnston at Five
Forks, He wu far in the van in tbe pursuit of Lee, and harrassed tbe army constantly. Atded by the Second and Blxtb
Corns he captured nearly all of Ifiwell's
command. April 6, at Sailor's Crook, and
two days later, he again fought tbe enemy
at Appomattox station, the day after Lee
surrendered.
Later in April Sheridan oonducted an expedition into Nortb Carolina, and on June 8
took command of the Military Division of
the Southwest at New Orleans. Relieved
by President Johnson August 96,1807, during tho reconstruction troubles in Louisiana, he was assigned, September 13, tothe
Department of tho Missouri. March 4,1869,
be was promoted to tho rank of Lleutenant-
General, aud twelve days later assumed
command of the Division of the Missouri,
with headquarters In this eity.
During the Franco-German war Genoral
Sheridan visited Europe and was present as
a spectator at several famous engagements. November 1, 1883, by direction of
President Arthur, ho assumed command of
the army of the United States, with hoad
quarters at Washington, in plaoe of Geuoru
Sherman, wbo was relieved by request, pre
punitory to hii retirement in tho spring ol
1884. Otf the -first diy of Juno, 1888. a bit.
reviving tbe rank of Genoral passed botli
housos of Congress, and on the-same do)
tho President appointed Sheridan Uonoriil
His doath, which occurred Sunday, August
ft, 1888, was due to heart failure, an affliction
from which he bad been suffering for eleven
weeks previous to his demiss.
General Sheridan has .told in his own
words of how the poem " Sheridan's Rido "
came to be written. It seems thut Murdoch, the elocutionist, was a great friend of
hts during the war. He had a'son with
Sheridan wbo wu kiliod at Mlsslonar,v
Ridge, and the old man came from Cincinnati to get the body.  The Confederates
wero occupying tlio place whoro llio .vou.i
•toldicr was burled, and tho father divid
tn wait until tho ground was pognitiBd, < In
Sundays the elocutionistuiledtoreolto p>-
■ms Lo the troops arouud headquarters, un.i
hero was one of Browning's thut the
soldiers always called tor, namely, the ulory
of tho ride from Ghent to Aix.
"Well, you see," continued the Genoral
'after tho battle of Cedar Creek t hero wiih
published in Harper's Weekly a story of my
rldefromWinchester and a piuturoufmo
an tho buck of old Rienzi. Murdoch hud
Agreed to recito a poem at a fair thun boiuj*
held In Cincinnati und Bead Imd jji'omlsc-j
to writo something now and appropriuto for
bin*,* But whon Murdoch called in for tin.-
manuscript tho afternoon he was to recite
be hadn't touched a pen to papor-stu.l lio
didn't know what to writo about. Well,
Murdoch had just seen a mau who wuh in
tho battle and was full of thei battle, biiiiig
a friend of mine, you see; so ho just pulled
the copy of Harper's Weekly from his -i iclret
and repoutcd to Read all the officer bud told
him. Rend Jumped up, looked himsolf in hin
room, wrote tho poem off-hand In an hour,
got his wife to mako a copy, and hud It ovor
to Murdo h before dark. The elocution isi
was delighted with it and recited it Umt
night."
Thoexprcssionusod in the poem which
describes his ruling down with a-'torriblo
oath" hus beon u source of annoyance totho
Genoral. Thoro hus beon an idea among
those who did not know him pQi'souully that
ho wu a vory profane man, and this haa
boon proved by anecdotes' concern in;* him,
in which ho huu beon so quoted. Duriug the
war bo recoived a numbor of curioii.i loiters
on tho subject. Tho good father'- and mothers of lhe soldior boys wroto hlm parties! ly,
begf-lnc that ho would not sot Hin-h an os-
umplo beforo their sons, who uduiiR-d liim
so much thnt thoy might oven emulate his
faults. General Sheridau on somo qconsibiis
during the war found tho ordinary wnub-
ulury of conversation inadequate to depress
his thoughts in action, und probably mndo
uso of language that could uot bo misunderstood, but tho prevalence given sucli
yarns about his profanity was always greatly annoying.
BEGINNERS ON   CHINA,
Advice ln the Art ot Painting Worthy tlio
Attention ot Amateurs.
"In order to be successful in tho art of
painting on china," said a skillful amateur
in that class of decorative work to a New
York Af ail and Express reporter, "tho beginner should not soar too high, but should
commence with simple, serai-conventional
designs m a single color until completo familiarity with the handling o: tho brush
and a thorough knowledge of colors Is obtained. To paint in mineral colors ono
should possess a knowlodgo of drawing, but
much may still be done whon that knowledge is lacking by tracing the outline of tiio
deafgus. A delicate tracing may be mndo
upon the china by going over tho outline
with a hard point, providod tho china has
been dipped in a solution of turpontlno or
lavender. That the tracing may not bo
rubbed off during tho painting it should bo
gone ovor with a lino brush und water-color
carmine, or a loud pencil mny bo used instead whoro tho colors oro not very delicate.
The carmine will disappear in firing.
. "After tho design lias boon outlined thu
color should bu laid on with broad strokes,
with a good-sized brush well tilled when tliu
design will permit. How to ranko tho color
of the propor consistency is to bo guiued
only by personal experience, tho paint
should be thinned with spirits of turpentine
as required, and only onough fut oil should
bu used to make tho paint work smoothly.
Special care Bhould be tnken in tbe mutter
of cleanliness in the delicate art, und excessive pains should bo employed to prevent
the various colors from muddying. If tho
work is to bo ilred it should bu dried ns soon
as possible, and when dry should bo at onco
put in the kiln.
Despite what bas been snid of its cost
china painting Is really tho most ccuuoiniril
of tbe kindred arts, for It is much moro useful, whilo its oxponso is not moro thun tlmt
incurred in any othor class .if {minting, A
set of colors may seem expensive ut tlrst,
but they will last for u lonn; timo, und china
of a cheap quality, which is Justus doslr-
eble, iu many respects, as tbo most cosily,
can be purchased at a reasonable price.
Any littlo blemishes that appear in thu
glaze can bo readily covorod up, uud when
the pieco is completed lt will look us well as
if It cost ono hundred times as much. The
oxponso of taking tho work to profCBsioniil
ttrorscanbo avoided by Qropurjug u portable kiln, for there aro many excellent one.''
to bo obtained, with full instructions for
thoir use. When ono does tho firing ut
homo it is best also to do tho gliding, but ii
tho ehinu is to bo takon to a professional, 1
should recommend that tho bunding be
done by him. Bands, however, aro not
necessary, for thoro nre muuy wuys oi
finishing tho china without them,
"A now preparation of gold comes in tho
form of the finest poiydor, whieh cun bu
dusted on utter tho eh'uiii is covered wltb ;i
coat of tho tinting oil. This comes In yellow
gold, deep gold, rod gold, green guld und
lemon gold uud costs throe dollars u pennyweight Aftor covering tho surface with
the tinting oil, which should bc applied wii !i
a pad mndo of chamois skin und cotton, tin;
goid should bo dusted on wiih absorbent
cotton, cnre being taken to place tliu ehinu
on a pieco of paper so thut the gold dust
which falls outside can bo saved. Although
this dust is more expensive than tho liquid
gold it Ib said to be moro economical uu the
whole."
" What are tbe newest importations in
decorated chiuni"
Thoy run almost ontlrely to motal decorations, with several shades of gold in Mie
majority of tho designs. Whilo those
specimens appear very rich, tlicy uro in reality quite simple, and cun bo copied by nny
amateur who is proficient, uud as ail tlie
shades of gold und motals cau be procured
at reasonable rates, I predict a suhsiuntiul
advance lu the popularity of china decora*
tion."        	
Retreat of Niagara Falls.
Although tho retreat of tho fall is slow it
will In a brief time, in the geological sense
of that word, lend to certain momentous
consequences, writes Prof. N. S. Shaler n
Scribiter't Mimattnc. Whon tho bard luyer
ot Niagara limestone passes below lho bud
of the river the stream will tbon out upon
rooks of another constitution, making for a
time certain small falls at a higher geological level; but inthe course uf ogos,,much
less long than those which have elapsed
since the birth of this waterfall, the gon*o
of the rlvor will extend up into tho basin of
Lake Erie, draining away a considerable
portion of tbat fresh water sea. Wo shall
then, if tho continent retains its present
height above tbe level of the sea, huvo
another system of cataracts in tho passugo
betwoen Lake Erie und Lako Huron, wliich
will also in timo bo worn away. Othor cataracts will thon form -it tho exit of Luko
Michigan, and thus io-j lower lakes of our
great American system would bo diminished in area, or perhaps evon disappear.
At a yet later stage wo may look for diminution ln tho size of Lako Superior, thougti
that basin, owing to tho strong wall which
separates It from the lower lakes, is destined to endure long after tbe last-named
basins have been diminished or entirely
drained awav.

a puugeutly personal nature—is tho

seed) of the enterprising studentn of
Dalhousie collego and university, Halifax, N.S. Tun numbers of the Gazette
are issued every winter by the students.
The staff is a large and evidently
an able one. Tho price of the magazine is $1 a year in advance. Single

Coul Discovery.
There was great excitement ou the
upper Skagit laat Friday over the
inking if a fourteen-foot solid vein of
blacksmith coal, the first and only yet
discovered on the Pacific const, at the
Cumberland mines opposite the town-
site of Hamilton, Wash, The vein is
owned by a rich Suu Francisco syndicate, of which Mackay, the American
millionaire, is president. Several iron
veins in the vicinity are dependent upon the striking of this vein and will
now be opened. It is expected that
smelters will now be built at Hamilton.

these descriptions should be commenced to day ao that justice might be done
to all befure Christmas day. Our
readers may expect from one to two
columns daily of this interesting matter, which, we hope, will be of some
assistance to them in pointing out
where holiday gouds and presents, including special lines in all branches of
trade, muy be procured.
Mule Happy.
A happy event took placo at Ladner's Landing yesterday, and which
caused uo little stir among the people
of that locality. The event in question
was thB marriage of Mr. J. E. Murchison, of Langley, to Miss Smith, eldest
daughter of S. L. Smith, Esq., of Ladners, The ceremony was performed
by Rev, J, Calvert in his happiest
style, and waa witnessed by many
friends of the contracting parties.
After a pleasant wedding breakfast the
happy couple left on their bridal tour,
whioh will embrace visits to Westminster, Vancouver, Victoria and Nanaimo. The Columbian extends congratulations.

The Netss-Adtetiistr delivery boy
met with an accident thia morning, nn
the trip from Vancouver, that came
nearly having serious consequences.
On descending a steep hill, a few milea
out of town, the horse stumbled and
fell, throwing the rider in suoh a manner that his ankle was pinned fast
under the animal's shoulder. The
horse soon relieved the strain by getting up, but not before the boy's ankle
had been pretty badly bruised. The
bundle of papers was scattered in the
mud, and suffered in appearance from
its contact therewith. The horse was
slighty injured by its fall, but the
plucky boy managed to get everything
straightened up again and reached
town only an hour later than usual.
CHRISTMAS CHEER.
Tbe Hnmns Wins-dam.
It ia reported on good authority
thut the attempt to build a wingdam
above Sumas landing, to straighten
the rivor channel and to prevent the
washing away of the bank, and the
even worse possibility of ehe river
breaking through into Sumaa lake, has
proved a failure, and cannot be successfully accomplished at present.
The report says thut the piles were
very dillicult to drive, as the bottom of
the river is exceedingly hard, being
composed of several feet of coarse
gravel, A number of the piles driven
were washed away within a day or
two, and the whole work, owing to
the almoat resistless current, is practically impossible ut the present stage
of the water. It iB also reported that
the contractor has abandoned the work
for a time.
Brought Thru- !• Time.
Readers of the newspapers will remember the accident whioh happened
on the Northern Pacific last summer,
near Gold Creek, Mont, whereby
many were seriously injured for life,
among others being Mme. Adele Nelson, the Australian equestrienne. She
instituted suit for $20,000 damages;
but the company refused to pay this
sum, and intimated its intention to
fight the claim. Mme. Nelson's attorney, Edmund Furthmunn, quietly Bent
to the scene of the disaster, and se-
oured the tie which had allowed the
rails to spread. The tie waB shipped
to Chicago, It was found to be ao
rotten that it would scarcely hold to*
gether, and the spikes for holding the
rails in place had literally fallen out,
Calling the lawyers for the defence, Mr.
Furthmunn in their presence curelesBly
kicked a square foot or so out of tho
timber. A willingness to settle was
the result, and the case was dismissed
from court.
The While Have*
The Essie Tittell Company had a
good wind-up last night, the best audience they bave had filling a majority
of the seats downstairs snd of course
holding down the gallery in the usual
effective and quiet manner. The
standard old play, "The White Slave,"
Bartley Campbell's masterpiece, as
many playgoers think, was presented
with the full strength of the company,
and under the encouragement of a guod
house they executed their parts most
creditably. The trying and very dillicult role of Lisa, taken by Miss Essie
Tittell, was a striking impersonation of
the character, and won the greatest
praise from the audience. She ia a
consummate actress and should have
little difficulty iu securing a permanent
metropolitan engagement. The faot
is, she is far too good an actress to be
travelling around with a roving oom*
pany. Mi is Minnie Tittell, as a sou
brette, reminds one of the best Hy-
urantes ot the eastern stage. Her
voice is not strong although trained,
but her dancing and aoting are fine.
Theae two olever actresies sre supported by a strong, intelligent company,
quite capable of presenting creditably
the best staudard dramas and comedies. It will probably be some time
before suoh s good company and auch
a well represented play as was set on
tbe boards at the opera house last
night, will appear here again.

A t'oi.imiii.vn reporter, with a roving com mission, started out thia morning to see whut our merchants were
doing in the line of Christmas goods,
and whether the window displays, and
if the receipt*- of fancy and Christmas
articles, were up to the high mark of
former years. A summary of his investigations is that WeBtmlnster is
going to have the finest Christmas dis*
play in her history, and oue that will
stand out prominently as a guide to
future window decorators, and be
cited usai'iii-'tliini* beyond the common
for yeurB to come.
H. T. KBAJJ ifc GO.
To come down to particulars, the
said itinerant scribe entered the store
of Messrs. H. T. Rend & Co., and was
at once taken under the wing of one of
the counteous clerks, who steered him
around anion'- the cutlery and silverware in the best maimer to see the
(•oods to full advantage. Messrs. Read
& Co.'s display of silverware, fine cutlery, bijouterie articles of table ornament and use, suoh as celery, cheese,
berry, fruit, pickle, salad and every
othor kind of jar and caster, single,
double and individual, and all beautiful specimens of glassware and silver
work, is really superb. In the west
window they have a silver tea service
valued nt $150, This beautiful sample
of the silversmith's art hus been muoh
admired and highly praised by all who
have seen it. In lumps, the firm has
u display, or rather had a display, for
uo sooner did they unpack the gooda
than the customers swarmed iu and
Christinas ur no Christmas, bought up
the lovely illuminators of all shades
and desigiiB, so that the display is not
quito so rich and varied aa it should
huve been, but through no fault of
the firm. There is still muoh left to
admire and ohouse frum in these goods.
In carvers there is an assortment that
ought to make the eyes of the man who
is looking for such articles sparkle.
These specimens of table cutlery are
beautifully finished with buck-horn,
rough and smooth handles and embellished with ornamental silver tips. In
all ihu other departments of the hardware and cutlery trade Messrs. Read
it Co. are making a fine show Their
east window will be used to display
their table cutlery, and it will certainly be one of the Bights of the city during Christmas week. The other window is pretty enough tu attract most
pussers by to stop and have a gaze at
the glittering show within, and the
comments uf those spectators are highly flattering to the enterprise of the
firm.
0(1 LB, CAMPRBLL  &  FRKBMAN.
Repot tora get the credit of dropping,
ns if by natural selection, from any*
thing in the hardware line, be it the
daily battle with ''carking care" or any
other fortuitous -'suuouinstance" of
their sweet existence, on to "soft
goods." And this whether they deserve
it or not, Io this instance, however,
the "soft goods" did not take a liquid
form, and it was into the fine, well
lighted and commodious atore of
Messrs. Ogle, Campbell & Freeman
that the inquisitive nose of Figaro petit
was poked. He was at onoe made
welcome, and on making known his
business was given every opportunity
to study the get up of this well known
establishment. First of all the firm
are going to try their level best to
make not only the finest display in
town, but the finest Westminster ever
saw. The reporter must chronicle the
fact that the firm has made a first-class
start in that direction, Even now the
interior of the store is a beautiful yet
bewildering dream of loveliness with
festooned Bilk, satin, velvet, handkerchiefs, soft, fleecy luces, rich deep-
cuh-red curtains, artistically set off to
perfection by some delicate light tinted
fabrics, Here can be seen the finest
productions of the looms of Belfast,
pure and spotless linens beautified by
designs of every conceivable description, table cloths, napkins, sideboard
covers and other kinds of linen. There
oan bu noted the products of the looms
of France, delaines from Paris and
flannels from Rhoims direct. Theae
goods are in all the soft, delicate
shades peculiar to themselves. There
are ulso sick umbrellas, gold and silver
mounted, a great selection of fancy
gooda for house furnishings, plush and
leather work boxes and other articles
the ladies delight in; there is a beautiful display of Japanese goods, well
chosen and sure to meet with all publio
approvul. In lace curtains a specially
mentable showing is made, and a moBt
tempting oue to tiny person looking for
such wares. The appearance of the
window facing on Lome street is pretty
in the extreme; it is the work of Mr.
Freeman, and the blending of color
shown in this window shows him to be
gifted with high artistic taste. To attempt a description would be futile; the
bust thing to do is to go and look at it.
Mr. Ogle is going to decorate the two
front windows, and those who have examined the window on Lome street
think that he has his work cut out if
he exceeds it in beauty of color and
cleverness of design.
W. AND 0,  WOU'ENJiKH.
The peripatetic paused a moment
before entering the well-known grocery establishment named above;
paused a few briof seconds to gloat
upon the appearance of the eastern
window with ita riches of candied peel,
and its almonds from fsr off Pslestine,
it* raisins from Malaga in sunny An*
dalusia, its macaroni direct from Na-
plea and ita liohes of canned goods
from Soho square. One osn be pardoned if his mouth waters at suoh a
sight; there is pardon fur him and
sympathy; ao, in the above interesting
condition the reporter stepped inside
and exchanged salutations with tbe genial junior partner, who took the
"litery feller all over the store and
displayed aome eye-openers of the grocery trade tlie said pen-wiclder wot
not uf. The store contains one of the
beat selected snd most complete stocks
of groceries in the province, snd if not
"from a needle to an anchor," hss, st
least, everything that comes between
Russian oavisr snd Frenoh shoe black
ing, whioh is comprehensive enough
for any taste. Of Crosse & Black well's
table delicacies, imported direct from
Lundon, tho firm hss a selection not
approached by any other house in the
province; the faot of their direct importation making a difference in price
agreeable enough to the purchaser,
The stocrf includes shrimp-paste, ham
and tongue, potted lobster, essences
of beef and a host of other epicurean
edibles 'too numerous to mention,
They havo no less than twenty-five
different kinds of table sauces, comprising all the old stagers whose repu
lation is as solid as tbe bank, Worcester, White's et. si. Lovers of the
piquant Indian chutney can have their
choioB of three different kinds. Every
herb used iu cooking is bottled up iu
convenient furm, ready for the cooka
manipulations. Even the mince meat
with the brandy included oan be hnd
iu little square boxes, beautifully put
up, and all ready for instant uso.
ln funcy biscuits there is an awe-
inspiring assortment comprising forty-
two varieties, und ull the product of
the factories of Christie & Brown, To*
ronto. The reporter nibbled a few
samples and olaised the whole lot as
"yuin-yum," Iu Mediterranean fruit
there is a tempting display; Malaga
raisins, Seville oranges, Sicilian lemons, Italian figs, Aaoalon almonds, and
orange, citron and lemon candied peel.
Macaroni imported direct from sunny
Italy (Naples) ought to attract the attention of connoisaeurs of delicatessen.
The quality of this article is vastly different from the "real Italian maenronia"
manufactured iu New York or 'Frisco.
Modern science hus reached such a hue
point, that, were it posaiblo for the
good wife to forget that Christmas waa
nigh and she had put everything off to
the last hour, all ahe would have to do
would be to step into W. and Q. Wolf*
onden'a, and iu a quarter of an hour,
as if by magic, she could have the table
aet out with a show that would drive
the frown uf apprehension off the good
man's faoe, and save the credit of the
family when all seemed lost,
