When the commission mot here a week

officer of this city, the Allegations wiire
so indefinite that* the commissioner
culled for more specified charges. Theae
were furnished on Friday and tho hearing began on the claim that the registration officers wore favoring the Gentiles
and discriminating agauiBt tho Mormon
voters. The ouae closed to-day. Tonight the commission decidod that the
charges aru, nut sustained and quote
frorti thS dtibision of the judge that the
registration officers have discretionary
duties, aa well as ministerial, und while
up to a certain point tboy must register
anyone who professes to take tho oath,
afterwards they may strike off the
names if, in their judgment, or on a
proof that tho persons are practising
polygamy. The decision is a victory
tor the registrars.
AUSTRIAN   SLAVES.
New York, Dec. 18.—A Pittsburg
despatch to the Tribune says:—Mr*.
Sohamberg, tho Austro-Hungarlan
consul here, expects to receive orders
from the government of Galicia to collect evidence and probably forward
witnesses forthe trial of 300 government oflicers, who aro charged with
making common cause with steamship
and railway lines in forcing men, women and children to emigrate to Am*
eiric'i. These officials, some uf them
of high rank, received a botius for
each emigrant transported. Treason
was the favorite charge on which the
heads of families wero frightened into
selling their homes nnd fleeing tho
country. About 15,000 of these people havo come to Pittsburg within the
past two years, and tho majority nro
working in the Cunnellevilte cuke regions. Tho gendarmes at four points
on tho Galician frontier were either
bribed or their imprisonment seoured
on false charges, and through these
four outlets tho poor peasants without
passports were driven over the mountains in droves, put on freight trains
und carried to Hamburg, where they
were shippod to America.
KILRAIN SENTENCED.
PuRvis*?' Miss., Dec, 18.—The jury
iu tho Kilmiu trial was completed today. On tho completion of jury tho
indictment charging the defendant
with pris.o fighting nud nisnult nnd battery wns road. Kilrain listened attentively to tlio roading nnd pleaded not
guilty to both counts. Mnyor Robinson of Purvis was the lirst witness.
Hu testified thnt he witnessed the
battle, nnd described it at longth.
He alsu testified tothe fact that Kilrain previous to the battle bet $1,000
with Sullivan thnt he would win. The
other witnesses gavo simitar testimony.
J. Filzpatrick, reforce, testified ho
held the stakes and handed them to
Sullivan, tho day after the fight. The
dofunce offered no testimony. Counsel
for butt) sides then addressed the jury,
the prosecuting attorney maintaining
thut the law had boen violated and de*
fondant waa guilty, while the defence
asserted thut the meeting between
Sullivau nnd Kilrain wns merely a
serial combat, not a fight. Tho caso
wns given to the jury shortly after
noun, and nt 5:30 they returned with
a verdict of guilty of prize fighting,
Kilrain was sentenced to two months'
imprisonment in the county jail and
to pay a fino of $200, An appeal was
entered and Kilrain was admitted to
bail in the sum of $1,000.
A Grievance nt Last.
A few short months ago tho British
Columbians, according to ono of the
addresses with which they wolcomed
Lord Stanley, were un people without
a grievance." Thia seems to havo beon
too much for the government, for at
onoe tho objectionable customs order
was issued, lt may bo explained that
the point in dispute is really whothor
the Canadinn Pacific shall havo the
monopoly of Victoria trade or be sub*
ject to competition. The customs order shutting off bonded communication
with Tacoma establishes tho monopoly.

, MARSHALL SINCLAIR.
This enterprising merchant has made
ample preparation for the celebration
of Christmas week by anticipating the
rush of trade in laying in t large number of specialties. Mr. Sinclair assured the reporter thtt he was animated by a burning desire to give his
customers the full'benefit of his cnorgy
tnd enterprise by selling his stock at
the most reasonable figure.. Mr! Sinclair has imported from the east over a
ton of oanaies tnd tweets, which hs
can sell bis customer, by the barrel,
tub or bucket, or in a paper bag if thtt
suits them better. Of fine confectionery he makes a display worthy of t
Toronto show window; the range ls
extensive tnd the selection choice. In

biscuits and crackers. Mr. Sinclair is
prepared to ester to any order in quality, price or variety, while in Christmas fruit, currant,, raisins, figs, candied peels, dates, pitted plums, prunes
and all the other seasonable ingre-
dionts of the plum (.adding, he makes
a fine showing Jams and jellies in
glass and in 3 and 5 pound cans make
a good show, and ginger in jars imported specially from China for the
Christmas trade looka exceedingly
tempting. There ia no lack of nuts,
every known variety being represented, even the chostuut. Mr. Sinclair has a grand line of teas
to show his customers, every
brand from the fragrant souchong to.
the Gunpowder variety, being on viow.
In coffees, there are Mocha, Java, Rio,
Maracaibo and Ceylon, til being well
represented. The canned gooda show
is tine, devilled ham, tongue and "the
devil himself" in tins, besides a large
tnd comprehensive selection of other
favorites being shown. Mr. Sinclair
makes r. specialty of chocolates and
keeps the best inskes, suoh as hvy's
Cadbury's, Mott'a aud Ghirardetli's in
stock, besides hating extra Christmas
inducements in that line. Mr. Sinclair's window is .worth t visit.
JABTES OUSN1NOHAM. "      '
A visit to the mammoth establishment of "Ihe pioneer hardware man,"
disclosed the fact that if the preparations for making t fino show on Christmas week ore perhtpi not so elaborate
as in aome other places of business, tlio
old tnd well-known house will be un
attraeiive enough place to select Christmas presents of all kinds tbat are comprised in the line of hardware, crockery
tnd house furnishing. In crockery
Mr. Cunningham hts one of the best
Christmas lines in town. Tea and
dinner acts tnd fancy articles of pottery ware, with oat glass and crystal
withont number, makeup an excellent and interesting as well aa tempting
display. There ia a pretty extensive
ahow of individual cupa and saucers,
very suitable fur gifts; these goods are
decorated io chaste and beautiful do-
signs. Mr. Cunningham haa a splendid stock of plsted wire, spoons, forks,
knives, etc, whioh ought to prove attractive to all householders and thoae
looking around for suitable wedding or
Christmas presents. A nioe range of
cast umbrella stands in many fancy
patterns and handsomely painted and
embellished should tlso gain considerable tttention from gift-seekers. In
the matter ef table tnd pocket cutlery
the house makes t display socond to
nono in the oity, in quality, beauty of
finish snd vanety. These goods are
imported aod are manufactured by the
beat English makers. Anybody in
want of t etw wherewith to overcome
the toughness of the Christmas turkey,
the carver proving useless, can get
anything iu that line at Mr. Cunningham's store, from a cross-cut down to
the humble buck-saw, tnd even that

REVIEWING the practical achievements, in the way of important discoveries ami interesting and useful
additions to Uio stock of information, of Stanley's latest and most
famous expedition into tlio heart of
the Dark Continent, an eastorn co-
temporary says:
Amongst Stanley's explorations
in Africa his recent discoveries in
tho neighborhood of tho Nyanza
lake rank only socond to his former
discovery of tho Congo, iu curious
and also in practical interest. Conjoined they open the way to bringing civilization, trade and Christianity into the vast region around
the sources of tho Nile. The paths
of easy access by way of the Congo
and its tribntaries,-03 well as by the
Nilo, to say nothing of what may he
done by railway communication from
the British and German territories
on the coast, arc now known, and
the rich resources of forest and plain
aro now sufficiently ascertained to
stimulate the most energetic exertions on the part of European nations. Before the steamers and locomotives of the white man the slave
trader will lice and leave the Dark
Continent to develop in peace and
prosperity tho fertile and beautiful
wilderness that stretches across the
wholo breadth of the equatorial regions.
A generation since only the
northern end of Africa and a fringe
along its otlicr coasts wero at all
known, Tiio mystery of tho Nilo
was to modern geographers as much
a mystery as it had been to Herodotus. Eut within thirty years the
discoveries mado arc moro in magnitude and importance than a contury ago would have been tho discovery of a new continent. The
name of Livingstone will always bo
associated with the most arduous
and most extensive part of those
discoveries. To him is due the
credit of laying bare tlio southern
third of the continent. Working
gradually north in successive journeys to Africa, he unfolded the
region around tho Kulakahari desert, then the basin of the Limpodo,
then tho vast valley of tho mighty
Zambesi, and finally Lake Tanganyika and a large portion of tho central lake district. Tho region thus
explored by the lonely pioneer who
now holds tho highest niche
amongst discoverers, stretches from
the Orange river to Lako Nyanza,
over a distance from north to south
greater than from the Gulf of Mexico to Hudson's bay--truly a tremendous achievement for one man
to accomplish, with little means and
generally without companions.
To Stanley belongs tho credit of
opening to the nortii of Livingstone's
region the -/eat belt of equatorial
Africa that includes the enormous
basin of the Congo. Ia commercial
importance- aud in breaking down
the barriers of African barbarism,
Str niey'a discoveries are probably
greater than Livingstone's. Tho
latest of his explorations grandly
supplement tho work of Speke,
Grant and Livingstone around
the sources of the Nile. The mysterious Mutn. Nzige, now to be
known as Lako Albert Edward
Nyanza, has boen seen fer the first
timo by white men. It stretches
north und south over the middle
reach betwoen Lakes Tanganyika
and Albert Nyanza, and forms tho
main source of tho Nile, which,
under tho name of the Semliki, pours
northward into Lake Albert.
The dwarfs, who for ages existed
in tho mind3 of men as an uncanny
terror of the unknown depths of
Africa, wero spine timo ago relegated
to the list of mythical existences.
Stanley has found them and fought
them, and lost many of his men
through their poisoned arrows. Of
oourso thoy aro not quite the pig-
mios that ancient writers described
thorn, but they are quito as fierce.
The "Mountains of the Moon"
wero another of the features of the
unknown tlmt loomed, up grandly
in Uio imagumlion of the ancient
world, and stretched iii vast propor*
^ionn Huross, the map of Africa in
tiho sohdol atlases of a quarter of a
century ago. They shifted about,
and finally vanished. ■ But Stanley
kst summer discovered that they
had a grand basis in actual fact, It
was probably the sublime majesty
of Ruwenzori—-the Cloud King—
towering up from its fringe of
•jialnis through the region of bluebor-
vies und bilberries into clouds and
perpetual snow, and looking down
over the stretches os the Semliki
■nd of late Albert Edward, and
even over the tops of the grand
cones of Mounts MacKinnon and
Gordon Bennett, that found its
faint reflection in tlie books of
Egypt, Greece und Romo and in the
supposed mountain chain, the pronunciation of whoso euphonious
name was one of the entrancing delights of the geography classes of
our childhood days.
Much of detail yet remains to be
filled up in the geography of Africa,
but for broad outlining thero now
remain only the unexplored regions
lying between tho Congo and the
Aruwimi on the south and Darfoor
and Lake Tchad on the nortb, and
a limited region north-cast of Lake
Victoria, Theso wildernesses will
soon, however, he penetrated, and
nothing groat will be left for discovery around the wido, wido world,
oxcept tho polar regions, and thoy
aro rather uncomfortable oven for
the most adventurous of restless
spirits.	
The following editorial from the
Tacoma Ledger of a recent date wo
reproduce without extended comment. It will be found to bo locally applicable at tho present time
in a geneml senso and also in more
than one particular. It will throw
a little light, too, upon the way in
whieh certain things are viewed by
other respectable and eminently enterprising communities, not in the .
bigoted "eastern and old countries,"
but "according to the western idea" j
and on the "coast." It will be
seen, also, that Westminster is not
the only city on the coast that is
blessed (1) with a so-called public
journal of a certain class. Says our
Tacoma cotemporary:
Tho Goldendale Sentinel copies an
extract from the saloon organ of this
city, which it says is  endorsed   by
tlie  Ellensburgh  Register, to  the
effect that "the general retail  business of Tacoma has fallen off' from
40 to 70 per cent, sinco  the muni-
I cipal  government,   driven  by tho
puritanical spirit, closed up a  portion of tho business of the city after
11 i*. to."   This refers of  course to
the ordinance closing  the  saloons
from II p. in. to 5 a, tn,   But  the
Sentinel does not credit   the  statement.   It does not believe that "the
Saloon business constitutes so nearly
the entire retail business of Tacoma
that to close them for six hours out
of   twenty-four has   reduced   tho
general retail business  from   40 to
70 per cent.   We all know," it says,
"that the population of Tacoma has
not been reduced at all; on the con- j
trary, it has  probably   been  augmented by this very act, and if the
citizens of Tacoma have lived  upon
40 to 70 per cent, less since the 1st
of November than they did  for  a
liko period before, they are just that
amount in pocket, und are certainly
in a very good condition financially
in which to commence tho winter."
Nor is it truo that the early closing
ordinaneo was  pawed at   the  demand of the  puritanical spirit  of
Tacoma.   As wo have several times
explained, this ordinance was introduced and passed in tho ink-rest  of
the  saloons,   The   best   people of
Tacoma wanted tc have the saloons
closed at midnight in order  to cn-i1-
pel loafers and  criminals   to  seek
lodgings and go to sleep,   So   long
us a class of saloons   remain   open
through the night  tramps  havo a
harbor in the city, where they can
evade the police, and, if   reduced to
desperation, sally forth to  plunder
and perhaps to kill.   There is nothing puritanical in this demand. It is
simply a necessary protection for lifo
and proporty.   The Ledger objected
to the hour of eleveli*, und   still   insists that the ordinance  should   bo
changed to   meet   the demand  of
the   majority    of    the    citizons.
As wo have  soveral  times shown,
the   general business of   the   city
hus   been  increasing  every   week
of tho year.   Tho   statistics which
we have been gathering for our annual review, to be published  January 1, are so far completed that we
havo ample proof of  this fact.   It
would be a sorry thing  indeed  for
Tacoma if the  retail   liquor  trade
constituted so large a   part  of tho
general business that a   suspension
of it for six hours,  between   lip.
m., and 5 a. in., would have the dis
astrous effect which its organ claims,
No one believes that it has or could
have such an effect, and the   claim
is put forth simply to stampede the
public in order to give  the  saloon
keepers, the gamblers and their victims a chance to prey upon tho   legitimate interests of the city,

A prominent New Yorker, quite

this statementof the mannerin which
the foundation wbb laid of the enormous wealth of tho Vanderbllt
family: A steamer plying between
Now York and Amboy on the Philadelphia route attempted to leave the
dock at Whitehall against a strong
tide. Three unsuccessful attempts
were made, when Vanderbllt—si
terwards known as the commodore
—denounced the seamen for a pack
of fcols. Tho owner of tho steamer,
hearing him, asked if he oould take
her out, was answered in the affirmative, when he told Vanderbllt to go
aboard and do it, whioh he did, and
was made captain and pilot of thi;
boat soon after, and moved his wif a
and family to New Brunswioli:,
where they kept a restaurant an d
saloon, he giving them a "pull" on

WORN-OUT LOCOMOTIVES.
A Chi. nj-o Iteiiortor noncrlhos a Visit to
tho Golgotha of ths Truck.
Vow people have any Idea of what be*
comoB of tlio railroad locomotivo after it
bus passed its yeara of usefulness. Where
uve they burled ia often asked, and nono
but tbu railroad mau can answer. Tho
greut-'iocomotivo works of the country aro
busy day and night trying to supply the
demands mado upon them, ond 'yet they
uro not equal to tho task, bo rapidly are
railroads being constructed in ovory Stato
in tho Union. The timo consumed la build-
in*? ono of theso iron monsters has been
reduced to a minimum, and some of the
works aro ablo to turn out an engine completo in ovory partioul&r every twenty-four
hours. Thev must pass away rapidly, and
whut becomes of them you ask. A re*
porter of tho Chicago Timet made a tour
through tho sorap-iron yard of tho Illinois
Central railroad, and all about, bleaching
and falling away from tho Influences of the
winds and storms of winter, were tho bones
and carcasses of these mighty dead. This
wus tho burying-ground for the great lo*
comotlvoB of tho country, the huge engines that havo served out their term of
lifo.. s *"■
Thoy have a history, though, these dead
nud rusty masses of old iron. Tako this
old carcass of engine 103, Thero is nothing
left now but tho boiler, and that is falling
apart with the action of rust—tho mere
skeleton of what was once a mighty force.
Tho woodwork of the engineer's cab haf
long ago been torn out, the huge driving-
wheel and the rods and bars, tbe brass and
steel trimmings, the bell and smoko-stack,
tho truck-wheels and the air that went to
make tho completo engine have been taken
away, ovon to the sheathing of the boiler Itself, and thus dismantled tho remnant of
old "182" 'is left to ita fate. It uiett to be
ono of tho best in uso, and the grizzled engineers of the road cast fond glances over
at tho yard whore it lies as tbey rush past
on a newer and finer locomotivo, recalling
how that battered ruin was yoars ago the
champion of the track and envied of all
Hero is engine 170 with a portion of the
cab still clinging to the boiler, but that is
ull that remains to show its former use. It
is a recent arrival in tho gravo-yard of tho
engines, yet the sparrows find snug quarters in the nooks and crannies of tho pipes,
and havo built their nests in the place
whero only- a short time ago the roaring
furnace-fire and hissing steam gave life
and Bpeod to the huge mass of metal. A
half-dozen otber ruins, in the process of
greater or Icbb decay, lie about the place,
and tho ground is strewn with the odds and
onds of many moro. It is the Golgotha of
tho track, a sopuloher whoro timo spreads
the pall of oblivion over man's handiwork
and makOB it naught
The life of a locomotivo depends very
muoh on tho workmanship put into its construction and tho class of work it performs.
A flrst-class passenger engine should be
good for twenty-five years, but fow now
turned out of the shops reach that ago, becauso tho necessity for speed in manufacture and tho demand for engines do not allow tho timo and caro to bo spent that
formerly went to make up tho locomotive.
As a mattor of foot, the locomotives made
twenty years, ago aro still in service on
muuy a railroad, whore tho engine purchased a dozon years ago Is laid up or put
into scrap. This is duo solely to tho sup*
orior workmanship and tho material used.
Much depends, also, on tho class of work
required of an engino. The passenger locomotive, which makes a run of two hundred
mites por day, at an averago speed of
twenty-five or thirty miles an hour, doos
not sustain nearly so much wear and tear
to its boiler aud machinery as tho engine
thut pulls a loaded freight train at the comparatively slow rate of fifteen miles an
hour. Tbo strain is ten times as much on
ovory part of tho freight engine as it Ib on
tho passenger ongino, and this is what tolls
ontho lifo of tho machine. Tho Illinois
Central has an ongino in servico built for It
in 1S58, and somo of the old carcasses in tho
gravo-yard cau look back over only half
tbat number of yoars. Thoy were larger
and finer to see, and had lots of modern
Improvements, but tho boiler, wu tho vital
point, and gave out before tho little old
Jitter felt tho pangs of age,
Tho company sold an engino tho other
day that had a better record even that this.
Engino No. 98 waa built Iu 1857, and was
used continuously up to a few weeks ago,
whon it went to tho gravo-yard—not to be
buried, however. Tho company really had a
sort of sentimental affection for tho faithful old worker, and meant to keep it housed
as a relic of tbe early daya and havo a littlo
placard announcing somo of tho interesting
evonts in its career, but a speculative junk*
man happened along and saw how bo could
turn an honost penny with No, 33. Ho mado
nn offer for it, which was accepted, and so
ono day the brave engine pulled out from
tbo yard where she hod sojourned for thirty-one years and wont away down tho familiar road for tho last time, and the old engineers and tbo helpers and tho workmen
all raised their hats and cheered hor as she
wentalong. What tho junkman did with her
is not known, but it is more than likely No.
23 is again hard at work at some coal or Iron
mino pulling away with creaking and weary
joints at a heavy load. Tbo engine is on the
books of tbo English Railroad Commission
as a romarkablo instance of longevity ln locomotives. Bomo years ago information
was asked from American railroads as to
tho life of tho American engine, the purposo being for comparison with English-
mado engines, and it is on record that littlo
m beat 'om all.
In tbe early daya of the road It was customary to name tho locomotives instead of
numbering thom, and such names as " John
Itogors" and "Betsy" were tiie cognomens of famous engines, Recollections of
11 Betsy" aro still the basis of many a yarn
among tho old cn-riiio-irs, Betsy hauled
the coach in whioh Abraham Lincoln flrst
paid a visit to Chicago aftor his nomination as Presidont, and botb "John Rogers"
aud " Botfly " afterward did servico for the
government of Lincoln by bringing ap
from the South many a rebel to Camp Douglas. Neither of tho engines is dead yet.
Tho wheela and rods and pistons may bo
gono, but tho boilers are atill at work
pumping up water at aomo of the way stations on tho road.
HIGH  MECHANICAL ART.
Some Wonderful EflTecti Nowadays FM*
ducc-l in Lithography.
"Tho growth of skill in tbe mochanical
processes of art reproduction within tbe
lust fow|years is something wonderful,"
Biiid a well-known artist to a New York
.V.//ti nd Kxpma roportor. "You rcracm-
bor thu timo when chromo-ltthographs bo-
cumo a rage. Tho youngsters canj not remember it, for It was, I think, nearly thirty
yours ngo. It was, of course, a'groat invention—the printing of successive Imprest-Ions of dlfforont colors on tho same sur-
fucc-and tho work was justly praised as a
•m-ut achievement. It was, howovor, crude
in the extreme, and, while tho pictures that
•.voru produced did great good in educating
ij-uorunt poopio to a love of tbo beautiful,
1 hero wore many of them obomihations in
tliu oyos of tho educated,
"Competition began at onco, and artistic
effect was held by many lithographers sec-
fiudury to cheapness, Morally this was
right onough, perhaps, but, artistically, it
was a crlmo, Millions of cheap pictures,
badly printed and glaring and offouslvo in
coloring, were thrown on tbo market at so
small a cost that they soon camo to bo
given away as advertisements Instead of
being sold.
" Gradually, howovor, processes woro refined nnd bettor work was Introduced, until the name abbreviated to 'ohromo' was no
longer a reproach. Thoro woro still many
bud chromes, ot courso, but thoro wero
mnny good ones. Now many pictures aro
produced from the lithographic press that
would dot bo out of plaeo in any man's
houso, no matter how rioh or how well odu*
cutcdlnarthomlghtbe.
"lt is only within somo twelve or thlrtosn
.veal's, however, that efforts have beei
made to reproduce wator-color painting, A
few woro mado for show at tho great Centennial exhibition of 1870, but thoy did not
tako tlm public fancy, though tbey were
really good pictures. Improvements have
boon mado alnco, until now, such work ls
dono as fairly to Justlly tho word 1 jual
used, whicli was ■wonderful.'"
The lithographer said ho did not licsita'i'
to undertake work on approval, aud thut ii
wus quite truo that tho lithograph iwploa ol
water-colors wero often takon for orlgLiuis.
Some little timo ago," he Bald, "one el
tho largest advertisers iu tho country ,v.u
persuaded to order a quantity of imitatitin
water-colors for advertising cards. Hu hesitated about doing it, saying that ho ditl uui
beliove the masses of tho poople cared l'. i
such things. They preferred tho shiny glo..;
of the ordinary lithograph, he believed. Ik
gavo tho order, howovor, and as be doos
things ou a large scale, ho gavo n large
order for the first set ot four sketches. Beforo this was exhausted ho ordered an even
larger quantity, and this was again followed
by an order larger than either of the previous ones. Some of his employes noticed
tbat ono man camo frequently for tho pictures, asking for threo or four sets at one.'.
Thoy woro glad to givo thom to him, for
the cards wore only used as advertisements
and, of course, thoy wanted as many us
possiblo distributed. This Btranger, however, cumo bo ofton that their curiosity was
aroused and they took somo pains to lim!
out who ho was. Tbey found that ho wus u
picturo frame maker on Fourth avenue, who
was framing tho cards in auch a wuy us to
hide tho advertisement, and was doing a
flourishing business selling them at threo
dollars a sot
11 Tho process of manufacturing these reproductions of water-color drawings dow
not diffor materially from that employed in
the making of tho heavier colored chrouio,
excepting tbat vory dollcate work, as woll
careful study of faint color effects, Is
cquirod on tho part of tbe lithographer.
" A separate stone Is required for oach
color printed, and whilo somo exquisite of-
fectn havo been produced in comparatively
few printings, the faithful reproduction of
mora ambitious subjects often requires Iho
uso of fifteen, twenty or even moro colors
or tints. In cases whore it is necessary to
produco good results in a few printings in
orde;1 to lessen tho oxponso of production,
tho moat skillful and experienced artists
are required, and I have seen wator-color
drawings in which a dozen or moro tones
and colors could bo readily detected, reproduced by tbo skillful handling of flvo or six
colors, merely by printing a moro or less
transparent or opaque color over another ub
the case might demand.
"After tho lithographer has carefully
studied tho original drawing boforo him,
and laid out his plan, he makes a careful
tracing of it on transparent gelatine on
which be indicates every line or shade or
gradation, and this tracing is carefully
transferred to a previously prepared stono,
and serves as a 'koy' to the entire work
and for all the color stoneB.
"The work on stone is drawn with n
greasy black chemically prepared crayon,
whioh, by the way, has to be sharpened
backward or from the point up, ao its very
brittle nature will not allow of its being
■harpenod in tho ordinary way. Thu
greasy crayon penetrates tho stone, which
Is then subjected to a solution of gum nrublo
andnitrlo acid, after which it is carefully
washed off with water. Tho black dravvlug,
howover, still show, but is now easily
washed from the face of tho stone with
turpentine, leaving the surfaco - to ull appearances as clean as when the stono first
came into tho artist's hands. It is then
dampened with water. The printer passes
his roller,'charged with color, over the surface, and this adheres only wboro tho stone
is dry, or in othor words, whore tho grease
of the crayon is,and this color is transferred
from tho stono to the papor.
"Tho Bamo process is employed for tho
application of each successive color, portions of tho picturo being drawn on several
dlfforont stones to obtain what may bo
called tho composite tints, while others uro -
only drawn on a ainglo stono, when tho
color in tbo picturo is to bo ono of those directly omployed."
WIGS  AND  SWITCHES.
bow They Are Hade  anil  Where the
Makers Obtain Their Mutorl.il.
Noar Fifth avenuo, on East Fourteenth
Street, is a storo which, though smull, gives
room for sovoral branches of business lhat
are not otherwise closely connected. There
is a carpot-Bhaking and cravat-clouniug
establishment', a wig-maker and a dealer in
optical and scientific instruments. A roportor for tho NowYork Telegram, while
waiting for a last season's rejuvenated
cravat, saw a man seated at a tablo In the
rear part of tho storo dottly weaving smull
bunches of human hair.
Boforo him, on a table, wero two upright
sticks about ono foot high, two feot apart
and ono Inch thick. Betweon thein were
stretched throo blaok threads. Near at
band wob a bunch of brown hair botween
two layers of cloth held dowu by the bottom
of au old fiat iron. Fulling throo or four
hairs at a timo from tho exposed end of tho
buncb, tho operator skillfully bent.tho ends
over the middle thread and twisted tho
other strands around thom, and so that another strand becamo tho middlo oue, Tho
bunch was thon bound down with whito
thread.
By continuing this work ho gradually
mado a long, thin fringe of hair, which ho
called a "weft." This was aftovwurd
wound closely around a cord about six
Inches long, thus making a thiok bunch or
switch. It took three of theso bunches of
short hair to mako ono switch, and thut wu s
accomplished by attaching ono by a longer
cord so that it commonced Ub career ubout
whero tho othor loft off.
Tho operator callod attention totho factthat
tbls switch was of short hairs only, about 8
or 10 inches in longth. "This," said ho, "is
a cheap one, selling for about $1.50, while
this of tho same color, but .longer uud till
tho hairs of nearly equal longth, costs $7.
Those exquisite shades ot light brown cost
$90 and $25, whilo this pale auburn is $10,
and bo, too, is this bright red."
"That's a charming color," said the ro*
porter, "but aren't you afraid of an attack
of whito hone 1"
"No," said tho dealer; "but to amuse an
old lady customer tho othor day I put one
just liko tt in tho window and told her tbat
sho would see a whito horso beforo I got
baok totho other side of tho storo. I had
scarcely turnod my back from tho window
whon the old lady screamed with laughter
and shouted: •Thore It Is; there's tho
white horse.' I turnod and saw a coups
just stopping in front of tho door. Tho old
lady bought that switch and took It with
hor to amuso hor frionds by attracting to
hor parlor windows all tbo whito horses on
upper Fifth avonue."
"Whero does your supply of hair come
from!" was askod,
"From Europo ontirely. There is not
enough of tbo nativo American crop to supply even my small store. It comes from
tho peasants and convonts abroad. Thoso
beautiful polo shades aro chiefly from Norway and Sweden. The puro white is tho
most expensive. It is mado Into threo
puffs a side to adorn tho heads of aristocratic old ladies."

Journal. A fow days ago a Lincoln citizen
opened a roll of butter which had been purchased at a grocery, and discovered therein
a small tin box which was found to contain
a piece of paper bearing tho following,
written In a neat, feminine hand: "I am u

Tbo girl who had written tho notedied many
years ago, leaving an aged husband and n
grown family to mourn her.

So valuable, it is seen, will be tho
results of the Surroy dyking scheme,
now nearly completed, that a petition,
it is reported, will bo (resented to the
Surrey council at its next meeting
from settlers in the vicinity of the
Nicomekl to have tho dyko extended
eo as to take in a further tract of over
five thousand acres. This movoment
is not to bc wondered at, when it iB
Btated that several quarter sections of
the land improved by the dyke, which
wore valued at about $5 per acre bo*
fore the scheme was inaugurated, havo
since sold for aB high as $20 per core.
A telegram received by Mr, J, S.
Cluto, secretary of the foot ball club
here states that the Nanaimo team find
it impossible to como hero nud play
the matoh on Saturday as arranged.
Most of the Nanaimo team aru working men and ennnot afford to lose a
day's work. . Thoy will, however,
come hero somo timo in January and
play tho homo team. Tho Westminster club is much disappointed at this
unwelcome news ns they expected to
havo a grout timo on Saturday. They
have, however, accepted tho situation
philosophically on the "what can't bo
helped must bo endured" principle.
Bunrd of Trade.
A special meodng of the counoil
of the board ol trade waa held yesterday to consider a letter from the Vancouver board asking that iti resolution
in favor of the enforcement of the
coasting regulations be enforced, Aftor
fully considering tho question tho
board passed n resolution expressing
the opinion that it would not be in the
intorest of trade to enforce the coasting regulations until auch arrangements had beon made as would ensure
a sufficient supply of British bottoms
to handle the bonded goods. The
board, therefore, could not at preaent
endorse the resolution of the Vancouver board.
The Snare Destroyer*
Capt. Robinson of the snag-boat
Samson has a way of dealing with
snagB which aro pulled from tho river
bed, that is vory effectual iu knocking
all the snaggishnoss out of tho sung.
These impediments to river navigation
are taken ashore, and after being
placed in a convenient locality, tire
blown to smithereens by a heavy
charge of some high explosive. When
the high tides como there ore consequently no old Bungs to float oft' and
deposit in the channel, ns formerly
used to be tho case. Capt. Robinson
is greatly esteemed by the river cap
tains and mariners, and thoy think ho
is just the right man in the right place
—and they ought to know.
Hard Oue Voters.
A prominent resident of ward ono
said yeaterday:—The Columbian sayB
the rate payers of ward ono are not addicted to voting—and you are right,
we aro holding baok for the present.
Since tho beginning of tho year not
quite a hundred dollars was spent ln
our ward on improvements, and even
that littlo nmount oxponded on slaah-
iug nstroetdid inoroharm thangood,for
tho street is more impassable now than
it was before being slashed. Wo tried
to get a couplo of tho wealthiest laud-
owners in the ward to represent ua in
the couucil, but they would not run as
they have heavy interests in othor parti
of the city to foster at present. During tho past year moro than 50 now
houses have gono up tu ward one, and
yau will find that these fifty new ratepayers will speak with a loud voice in
the civic elections of 1890.
CbHdfen„Cr'/for PitoherJjCattorla
A Narrow Eicapc.
What might havo developed iuto a
terrible catastrophe happened this afternoon at the comer of Columbia and
Begbio streets. A man vory much
under tho influence of intoxicants
mounted hia wagon, which was drawn
by a spirited toam of young bays, and
by some means or othor backed tho
team on to tho sidewalk and then fell
off between tho team aud wagon, one
of hia lega going between the front
wheel and tho box. Ho hung on to
tho reins and by tugging at thom and
shouting, got the team frantic and thoy
mado despornto efforts to bolt. They
would hnve succeeded but for tho bravery of a mnn who rushed forward aud
caught them by the head. Tho driver
wna extricated not much tho worso for
his very close call. Of course ho had
to get up and abuao the animals in
view of a large orowd of spectators.
The outfit is from Mud bay, and tho
human part of ft caino in determined
to enjoy himself, nnd ho camo very
neaily overdoing the fun. Two ladiea
hnd n narrow escape.
Mole n loaf.
Ah Wah is a pale, wan, omacintod,
hnlf-starved, ghostly-looking boh of the
celestial kingdom, and his features are
aa expressionless as the end of a cedar
Btump. It seems that yesterday Wah
entered Harvey's cottage bnkery on
Columbia street and purloined a loaf of
bread. Ho wns immediately chased
nnd collared, and tho loaf recovered.
No ono appeared to prosecute on the
charge of larceny of tho loaf—the won*
der is that he did not attempt to steal
tho whole bakery as he looked hungry
enough for any aot of daring. The
chief of police laid an information
againat Ah Wah for vagrancy. In
nnswer to hia honor's query as to why
he stole the loaf Wah laid both hands
ovor his stomach sud wrinkling his face
up liko the outaido of a walnut, rooked
himself to and fro, laying, "Oh, mo no
got any muck-a-muck for long time."
After the audible smiles which this reply elicited had subBidod, Ah Wah
repeated, piteously, "Oh, tn' belly
heap sore," holding his epigastrium iu
the same oxpresaiye manner. The
chief of police reoommended sending
Wah up for a term that would expire
near St. Patrick's day. The chief of
police noted that Ah Wall's queue had
either beon curtailed in some former
prison experience or he had boon lying
around whero the rats could chew it.
Ah Wah gravely explained that his
queue was always "little, heap small,
no glow good." The priioner was
■entoRced to three square meals a day
at tho central jail for three months,
with hard labor, whioh hii honor informed Wah would probably tako the
form of "heap washee." Atthe mention of the three meals a day Wah't-
face was illumined with a smile which
only the "heap washee" prophecy
oloudod lor a moment.
More Aiiolof-lcs,
Iu a very obscure corner of this
morning's isauo of Truth, far removed
from tho local items and editorial comments, the following apology to Mr.
W. J.  Walker, accountant, appeared :
Sin, Au the writer of the letters signed
Citizen wliich appeared in recent issues
of your paper 1 have to express my regret at having used language capable of
being construed as roflocthig upon ' Mr.
Walker's actions aa city auditor.
I wish to withdraw such expressions,
for which there was no justification.
Citizen.
lmmediatly under tho above is tho
apology of the editor of Truth. It
reads:
Wc call attention to another letter
from Citizen appearing in to-day's issue
and havo to add our regrets to his for tho
construction put upon his former letter.
It is a pity that this mis-named
shoot does not consider beforo allowing aspersions of a respectable man's
aotiona. A littlo more forethought
and honesty of purposo would savo
Truth tho humiliation of a succession
of pitiable apologies.
The Surrey HiTvenhip.
It was announced aomo time ago thnt
Mr. Jamos Punch, tho present reeve
of Surroy, nud who has occupied that
honorable position for tho hut two
years, would not stand for thu ensuing
municipal year. It would appear,
however, that a larco number of the
Surrey ratepayers are quite anxious
that Mr. Punch should bo re-clcctcd
and serve as reovo for another year.
Tho principal reason for thia- desiro is
understood to bo tho fact that during
tho present year Mr, Punch has given
very important assistance towards the
inauguration and prosecution of tho
Surrey dyking ahomo, and, as certain
legislation affecting the enterprise will
require to bo enacted in the legislature
thia winter, it is deemed best, in tho
interests of the undertaking, that Mr.
Punch, who is familiar with evory detail of the scheme, should bo iu a position to see it to a satisfactory finish.
A requisition is spoken of to induce
Mr. Punch to niter his already expressed detcrmination,and consent to stand
for tho Surrey rceveship for thu ensuing year, which, ifc ia believed, under
all the circumstances, nnd out of respect to the ratepayers, ho will do,
THE NORTH ARM SNAG.
The North  Arm   IMtlge Nearly I'mircr
the loss at llie Fairy Q-teen.
On Wednesday uight, ou her down
trip, the atr. Fairy Qucon van into lho
pilo work of the North Ann bridge,
and Biifferod considerable damage
Tho night was very dark', and aa tho
bridge is uot lighted to indicate the
whereabouts of tho draw, the vessel
ran full tilt ngainat tho piers mid without a moment's warning. Capt. Card
was in ohurgo, and ho wns steaming
cautiously and on the lookout for lho
bridge ,--t; the time the accident occured.
When tiio steamer camo into collision
with the piles, hor uppor works wero
stavo iu and badly damaged thoir
whole longth, nnd had tho vessel been
clear forward it is almost certain her
hull would havo been stove in and
that she would havo sunk thoro and
then. Tho Fairy Queen has boon laid
up for repairs ainco tho accident, but
Capt. Cnrd expects to resume regular
trips wilh hor to-morrow. Tho government will bo applied to by tho own-
era of tho vessol, to mako good tho Iobs
sustained through tho accident.
If tho North Arm bridges aro not to
bo properly lighted, and that immediately, navigation on tho north arm of
the river will bo practically closed nt
night. Of, course, this will not bo
permitted, ns tugs nro passing up and
down river at all hours of the night,
and it will bo tho duty of tho city
council nnd bonrd of trado to movo in
thia mattor at onco.
rrobuiily A Wreck.
The tug Pilot, Captain Bonrodt, arrived in Viotoria shortly nfter mid-
ight from Cape Flattery, which point
aho left early in tho evening, having
towed tho ship Commodore, coal laden,
to aoa, from Departure bay. On the
return trip of tho Pilot, when about
four milea inside the Capo, Captain
Benrodt sighted a lot of floating lumber. Owing to the darkness he nt
fir3t thought it was kelp, but heavy
sticks soon showed thomsolvos flashing
in the mad sea, which was raised l-y
the heavy southeast galo. Tho timo
of sighting the first lot of the drift was
about G o'clock. At a few minutes
past 0 another lot was ruu acrosa, tho
last being somo acres in extent, tho
surfaco of tho sea being covered with
floating Umbers nnd planks. Capt'in
Benrodt steered tho Pilot up close to
tho mnss of drift and nnd mndo it out
to bo freshly-cut lumber, but the darkness wus too great to distinguish nny
marks upou it. Cnpt. Bonrodt ia of
the opinion thnt tho wreckage is fiom
■ome lumber-laden vessel which haa
either jettisoned hor enrgo or boon
driven on tho rocks nnd brokon up.
Tho quantity of the drift, lie said, wna
something great, nnd from this it is
assumed that n wholo cargo of lumber
has boon lost from ono cause or another.
Tho weather off tho Cape haa been
something fearful lately, Captain Benrodt anyini* that ho hns seldom seen it
worse. On the trip up from the (.'ape
last night, tho Pilot hnd a rough time,
tho seas making a clean breach over
her after Unco Rocka were rounded.

British Columbia salmon ennnora
hnvo been urging on the Ottawa government to withhold their protection
from trout, which they say prey upon
tho raw material of tho cnuncrici.
Salmon being tlio favorite food fish has
boen subjectod to great destruction,
the canneries furnishing tho means of
distributing it wherever there ia a demand, whilo trout have boen allowed
to multiply. The effect lias been to
destroy the equilibrium of naturo, and
in some aort to place tlio salmon at a
disadvantage. So lhe canners argue,
and thoro is truth in what thoy aay.
Trout nro the enemies of salmon only
in tho senso that nil fisli nro enemies of
ono another, tho largo ones feeding on
tho small, ensuring the mirvivnl of tho
biggest. There ie nuother dnngur tu
the salmon, and that in un wiso destruction by man. If thoao fiah wero pursued only in the son, there chances
would bo muoh hotter, though the viow
long hold thnt no possible implements
of destruction used thoro can lessen
thoir number ia no longer received us
gospel; but unless a fair opportunity
for reproduction ia givon nt spawning
time, in tho rivers, u diminution of tho
supply must go on. Thia is a fact
which thu canners hnd better tako to
heart iu time. Wo may multiply
hatohorlos aa we like, nnd nt whatever
expense, but unless the clean senaon is
properly observed destruction ii likely
to go un fester than reproduction. This
