JIUW DAVIS DKAD.
E\v Oi;r.KANH, Dec. (i.—Jefferson Da-
Vft eX'prealdent of the Southern Confederacy, tiied at 12:2(i this morning. Tho
announcement of the event created a
profound aousntion, and was immediately telegraphed to all tho leading oities of
the south. His death has heen expected
at any time within the last month. Four
w,-ck'a ago, while traveling on a river
akainei, In; caught cold, and his condition became serious. Hia ph.sicians refused to allow him to roturn home to
Mississippi. Mra. Davis woe aent for
and immediately joined her husband, and
remained with him continuously to the
end. Mr. nnd Mra. Davis were aa* devoted
to oach other as when in their younger
days they eloped. For tlio last three
days Davis woe getting steadily better,
and was much improved, and favorable
Bymptoras continued yesterday. Late in
the afternoon, at 4 o'clock, Mra. Davis
sent bucIi a cheering mcsBage to Mra.
Stamps and Mr. ami Mrs, Penner that
they decided for the firat timo since
Davia was ill to attend tho French opera.
At (J o'clock yesterday afternoon, without any assignable cause, Davis was
seized with a congestive chill, which
seemed to absolutely ornsh the vitality
out of his already enfeebled body. So
weak was he that tho violence of tho assault soon subsided for lack of vitality
upon whieh to prey, From that moment
to the moment of ms death the history of
his ease is characterized by a gradual
sinking. At 7 o'clock Mrs. Davia administered medicine, but tho ex-preai-
dent declined to receive all tho dose. She
urged upon him tho necessity of taking
the remainder, but putting ic aside with
the gentlest of gestures, ho whispered,
"Pray excuse mo." These woro bis last
words. Ho gradually grew weaker and
weaker, but never for an instant seemed
to lose consciousness. Lying peacefully
npon tho bed, and without a trace of
pain, ho remained for hours. Silently
clasping and tenderly caressing his wife s
hnnd, and with undaunted spirit, he
awaited the end. From tbe moment of
the dread assault of the congestive chill,
those gathered about the bedaidc who
had been watching aud noting with painful intereat evory chango of symptoms
for the Inat month, knew well the dread,
messenger was at the door. About half
past 10 o'clock Associate Justice Fonner
went to the French opera house to call
Mr. aud Mr.t. Farrar aud Mrs, Stump.
As soon as tho message reached them
they hurried to tho bedside of the dying
ex-prceidoht, and by half past ll o'clock
there woro ashcnibled in the death chain-
ber Mra. Davis, Dr. Chatle, Asanciate
Justice and Mrs. Fenncr. Miss Naunir
.Smith, griind-neice of the dying nx-presi-
dent, and Mr. and Mrs. H. H. Farrar,
Binding that Davis waa breathing somewhat heavily an he lay upon tho bed, the
doctor assisted him to turn upon his
right Bide, with hia cheek resting upon
hi* hand, like a sleeping infant, nnd the
left hand dropping across the chin. He
Liy for some fifteen minutes, breathing
faintly, then more and more feeble
became tho respirations till they passed
into silence, and then the watchers knew
ho was dead, After death the face of
the deceased, though looking slightly
emaciated, showed no trices of suf&riiig,
more nearly resembling that of a peaceful
sleeper thun that of the dead.
Messages have been received from At
lauta, Biloxle, Memphis, Louisville, aad
many other points, all expressive of respect for the d. ad confederate, and of
Bympathy for Mrs. Davis in hor affliction.
The remains will probably lio in atate
at tho city hall here previous to removal
to Mississippi for burial. Tho general
sentiment among ex-confederates is that
tho obsequies of Davis should be the
most imposing ever witnessed in tho
south, and it is believed the ex-soldiers
that will attend the funeral will he
numbered hy thousands.
The supposed congestive chill which
was the immediate cause of death is attributable to a return of the malaria.

Brooklyn, N. Y„ Dec. 6.—John
Greonwall, convicted of tho murder of
Ly umu WoekeB, was hanged this morning iu Raymond street jail yard.
Grecnwnll awakened of his own accord

about three hours. After dressing he
went to tho improvised chapel nud

relish und smoked a cigar, then wroto
a hurried letter. Uo then said to the
warder: "I can die as gnme as Curl-
ton did," and cipressed the wish to

nnd was led to the gallows. He exhibited no fueling. The drop fell at

EMIN BETTER,

Zanzibar report that Emin Pasha is
somewhat better to-day.
A lively warfare.
London, Dec. 5.—While messages
of welcome and congratulation nro
being showered upon Stanley and
Emin from all parts of the civilized
world, the French and German press
are engaged in a bitter wur of words
over the explorer's achievements.
The controversy began in an article
published in a French paper lauding
Stanley and deriding Emin, whose
helpless condition previous to his rescue by Stanley, the paper asserted,
waa the result of his cowardice, and
whose vaunted civilizing influence had
really never extended beyond the con-
tines of his own tent, or such habitation as he chanced to occupy. This
tirade was sufficient to arouse tbe editors of several German journals, who
declared that Stanley had appropria-
ed to himself credit and honor that
was due to Emin, and predicted the report tbat Emin would make when he
should reach the coast, where it would
be beyond the power of Stanley to
' suppress or garble the Pasha's statements, would confirm that declaration.
Thus the matter stands, except that
gradually other papers on both sides
have boen drawn into the dispute, and
the epithets employed are becoming
more worthy uf denizens of slums than
"moulders uf public opinion."
CRUEL FATE.
Zanzibar, Dee. 5.—After enduring
the hardships uf many years' residence
in the interior of Africa, and the dang
ers uf his journey tu the sea, it has
neon tbe fate of Emin Pasha to receive an injury which is likely to result in his death. The Pasha u v-iry
nearsighted, and habitually wears
glussea. To-day he attempted to gu
about with'ar them, and unconsoi
iu*ly walked out of th*: window, falling
some distance to the ground. He wat
picked up and conveyed imo ihe houie,
where it way fouau hf had »u*tamen
a fracture of the skull, whioh all uf the
dnCurs of Bagamoy -, except StanltyV

of his colleague is that Emin ia in i
very critical coud ton, but expreese:

his life. Ai it is, the Pasha eannot,
under tne most favorable circumstances, be removed trom Bagnmoyo

season. Tbo United States are very
anxious to disseminate the idea tbat
tbe treaty boundary line is difficult of
ascertaining, and that tho Canadian
government do nob know what they
want. We know perfectly well. The
boundary line was defined by the
treaty cf St. Petersburg between England and Russia. When the United
States purchased Alaska they purchased subject to that line. Thtt line
we contend is perfectly eaay of demarcation, and the government intend to
insist on it."

The steam schooner Al-Ki put back
to Port Townsend on Monday night
with disabled machinery and is laid up
for repairs that will delay her sevornl
days. She left Departure Bay Saturday with 000 tons of coal far Snn Francisco, and encountering rough weather
sbe put into Port Angeles, where she
lay until Sunday morning. She then
started on her way and reached a
point off Cnpe Flattery when the cross-
bolts of one of the cylinders of the engine gave wny and the piston broke out

about an hour, when the Michigan

chiefly to young men and young women. The influence of woman iu
molding the characters of the rising

depths of degradation, sin and shame.
An urgent appeal was made to the women present to to use their influence
to stem the mighty tide of iniquity
which is devastating our land, robbing
thousands of lives of their sunshine,
and casting the dark shadow of despair athwart the threshhold of happy
homes. Young men were to hear in

History pointed to suoh men as Lord
Byron, Hobble Burns, and many others
who were forced to own the power of
the "siren-voiced devil" that was luring them to ruin. Large hearted men,

intellectual attainments, men who
oould grace any poiition in society,
these were the chosen victims of intemperance The Maple Ridge choir,

Tin; morning paper is keeping up
its reputation for fairness anil -truth,
with the accent ou the "uu-," with
it vengeance. Yesterday morning,
in discussing the various candidates
for nidermon, it devoted a lengthy
paragraph to lead its readers to boliove that Mr, Jas. Johnson, one of
the best candidates in ward two,
was a "howling Salvationist," or
wordB to that effect. While there
are a great many worse things than
being a zealous and consistent member of the Salvation Army, in the
interests of strict truth, now that
the question has been raised by a
falsehood, wo may state, what all
Mr. Johnson's frionds know, that in
matters of religion he is one of the
staidest of Presbyterians—the very
antipodes of tho demonstrative Salvationists—and, in fact, is known to
have personal predilections not favorable to the Army. Apart from
this foolish question, whieh the
Truth (1) has not scrupled to raise
for the purpose of misrepresentation,
Mr. Johnson, ns wo have intimated
before, is well fitted in every respect for an alderman, and, wo predict, will make one of the best at
the board.
Truth affects a lofty fairness towards Mayor Townsend in its apparently disinterested "kalsomining"
of the rather obtrusive "angularities" of • tiie .njftjor's ■ ''tergiversations" on the salary question. Anyone who will take the. trouble to
scrape the varnish off (he surface,
however, will lmve no difficulty in
discerning that the morning paper,
under a very thin guise of friendship
aud generosity—hyprocrisy would
be the belter word—is, very ungenerously, doing its best to make the
mayor out a t'oul, mid grinning sardonically, nnd all too transparently,
in its sleeve the while. Juat gaze on
this, from the Church street oracle
this murning, and weep—ur smile—
asthe i iccasionand circumstances may
render must convenient: "It must be
borne in mind that when Mr,
Townsend held out for the maximum
salary he had not considered the
fact that tho only duty necessarily
devolving on the mayor was to preside at meetings und sign his name
when required. When this was
pointed ont to him, heat once, being
a man of common sense, saw how
untenable was his position and
how incapable of reasonable argument any motion to pay the mayor
$3,000 would be. Under these circumstances be withdrew his ultima-'
turn." In bis famous manifesto on
the salary question, Mayor Town-
send stited, u few days ago, that "it
was generally conceded" the salary
of $2,000 should be paid the mayor,
"as the- position now takes the
whole time and attention of whoever fills tlie chnir." By what process of argument, or hypnotism, hns
the mayor been led to so stultify
himself a.s to declare that his deliberate, expressed conviction, founded on nix months' experience of the
mayoralty, was all nonsense—that,
in short, he didn't know what be
was talking about—and to half admit no-v thnt the mayor could struggle along without any salary very
well, ftji- nil Im has to do is "to preside nt meetings .and sign his name
when required?" We leave the
Truth to "balsotnine" theso "angularities." There are loo many corners h'f-re for us. We may havo a
good many "knot-holes" in our
"homestead," but we haven't got
enough whitewash in our paint-pot
to plaster this geometric monstrosity,
AlVRiTEit summingup the present i
fet ite oi' tlm Ottoman empire, concludes by saying, "It is my deliberate conviction tlmt the Turkish empire is on the ove of a terrible and
perhaps a Until convulsion." So
often has this or its parallel been
said that wu liavo our doubts as to
the prediction being ful6lled. The
English prune minister referring to
the atrocity recently perpetrated in
Crete and Armenia, flippantly spoke
of the niiaivhy reigning in those
places ns ''faction tights;" yet, in
spite of his disbelief in the terrible
state of things mining the Christian
subjects of'the sultan in those provinces, public opinion was so strong
that even lie had to urge the porto
to bring Moussa Bey to trial for his
cruelties. The subsequent proceedings in this uffiiir are interesting us
throwing u strong light on the subject of Turkish misrule. Moussa
Bey, a Turkish official of tho very
worst typo, had so carried out his
infamous cruelties as to make all
Europe execrate Iub name, and, as
we stated, it remained for Lord
Salisbury to demand of the sultan
that he should be brought to Constantinople imd there bo put upon
trial. Moussa hns merely exchanged
local obscurity for metropolitan distinction. His judges are obsequious to him even in . open oourt, he
livos sumptuously, and has a largo
retinue of servants. The so called
trial is merely a fraud to throw dust
in the eyea of the European powers.
The fact is that the  wholo system
of Turkish, government is rotten,
Lord Stratford de Redcliffe enjoyed
exceptional influence with the porte,
"yet ho wholly fuiled in tho attempt
to get tbo Turk to amend himself or
to let himself be amended." The
sultan is quite unable to enter into
any alliances on account of the disorganisation of his army. The pay
of the officers and men is in arrears
from twenty to thirty months in
tho provinces, and even at Stain
boul the garrison is lacking six
months' pay. Meanwhile Russia is
longing for Constantinople, Austria
for Salonica, Italy for Tripoli, Persia
for Bagdad, Greece forThessaly und
Crete, Bulgaria for Adrianople, and
tho sultan is reported to be a halfwitted fool in tho midst of his 500
slaves in his harem. Carpet bearers, water carriers, and interpreters
have much more influence with
Abd-ul-hamid than his responsible
ministers, and it is reported that he
is suspicious that every ono is plotting to place his crown on tho head
of Monrad, the lute sultan, who is
rapidly recovering his health. Such
in the picture of the sublime porte
drawn by a Mussulman of high
authority but of tho enlightened
school of Midhat Pasha. Will
Europe forever put up with this
pestiferous sick man at its gates, or
will the bag and baggago policy of
Mr. Gladstone have to be followed
after all 1 As long as tho Turk remains, tho smoldering embers of the
eastern, question will be ready to
burst into flames. All the powers
are waiting and watching, all of
them ready to tear the sick man
limb from limb, yet each ono chary
of making a move for fear of exciting his neighbor's alarms. Meanwhile the unspeakable Turk continues his unsavory presence at the
gates of Europe.
Recent advices leave no room for
doubt of the safety of Stanley, the
African explorer, whose arrival
within the actual circle of civilization, outsido of which he has been
so long, may bo daily looked for. He
is approaching the Zanzibar coast
with, a party numbering some twelve
liundred, including his own followers and those of Emin Pasha, the
central African state so long governed by the latter, with heudquar-
ers at Wadelai, having been overrun by the Mahdi and incorporated
with his Soudanese possessions.
Since the latter part of the year
1887, when the explorer left Stanley Falls on the Upper Congo, the
news from him has been very meager, and that which did come wns
anything but hopeful, especially
when taken in connection with tlio
reports that Emin's settlement had
beon broken up and Emin himself
was a prisoner in the hands of the
Mahdi, which report has turned out
to have been only partially correct.
Tho country in whioh Stanley's
routo lay is described us a tableland
of some live thousand feet elevation,
directly under the equator, with
many mountain ridges and snow-
cupped peaks, much of the surface
heavily wooded, and having a vegetation so prolific as to be almost impenetrable, while it has a very considerable population, mostly of small
savage tribes. In a region of this
character, ubout one thousand miles
each way in extent, Stanley has
been marching and counter-marching for nearly two years, and tho object of his mission is now about fulfilled in the relief nnd rescue of
Emin Pasha, which that gallant
old African veteran however, apparently hardly appreciates.
The additions made by the explorer to our knowledge of the geography
of this vast region in Central Africa,
observes an exchange, ure necessarily
limited by the meagerness of tbo
accounts so far received, but it is
seen that they will be of great importance. Heretofore tho Albert
Nyanza has been considered the
source of the southwest branch of
the White Nile, the Victoria Nyanza
being the sourco of its southeast
branch, Stanely, however, has discovered an extension of the Southern Nyanza, or Nyanza of Usongora,
which, he says, "is called now Albert Edward Nyanza, and iB about
900 feet higer than Albert Nyanza,
having an exit ut Semliki, which receives over fifty streams from tho
snowy range of the Rujeuzori, and
finally enters the Albert Nyanza,
making the Albert Edward the
source of the southwest branch of the
White Nile," The area of tho extension is said to be 26,900 square
miles,
It will probably bo a wonderful
and thrilling story which tho adventurers will have to tell when
they finally reach home, and it will
nlso be ii Btory of hardships und privations endured, of sickness, want
of food, und unremitting toil of the
severest kind under the blaze of a
tropical sun or in the moro deadly
African morasses and jungles, but
tho results are certain to placo the
name of Henry M. Stanley in a yet
higher place than it has heretofore
occupied among the world's great
explorers. He has succeeded in
rescuing the party of Emin Pasha,
and his other work cannot fail to
give an important impetus und a
more intelligent understanding to
the numerous enterprises now on
foot for the speedy, opening up to
the world of these vast and hitherto
almost unknown regions of central
Africa.

Mrs. McDonald, whoso namo figured
in a sensational affair a fow days ago,
has returned to Nanaimo. She say3:
"1 first became acquainted with PetBr
Cameron in 1887. All wont well for
a while, wbon some evil-dispoacd person would meet him and tell him little
tales about mo and whicli he believed,
and by so doing brought an estrangement between ua. I have read the account in tho Colonist, but it is uot true
and I dont know who could have told
that tale as 1 nm sure I did not, and a
dead man could not do so."

Mr. James A. Laidlaw, tho well
known salmon packer, left for Viotoria tu tlay. His visit to the capital
ia for tho purpose of getting together
a crew of men to go north and engage
in ttie construction of the new cannery which i3 b be established on the
Skeena river by Mr. Laidluw, Capt.
.John Irving and others. The now
ciiiiuiry will bi as complete iu every
w.iy as any in ihu province, and its
capacity will be very large. Tho new
venture ought to be a great financial
bucccbb, aa lhc Skeena is by no mentis
over fished.

Work haa bueu suspended on tho

work will be resumed and vigorously
pushed to a finish, so that the whole
dyko may bo complete beforo tho high

The Law on Poker.
At the Nanaimo assizes a few daya
ago a case mixed up with gambling
came up, and Chief Justice Begbie
charged the jury at considerable
length, and denlt ureatly upon the evils
of gambling, particularly stud horse
poker aa being a very unfair game. Hu
said the law allows certain gatnoa to be
played, such as whUt, euchre, seven up,
and ether games wherein the playem
have an equal chance, but the law wilt
not protect them in case they should
lose any money. But attain there ure
games which the law will not nil>u,

Ono of tbe old-time citizens who
en 1110 hero in the fluBh of manhood, and
who hus grown gray beside the banks
uf Father Fraser, was over in Vancouver tho other day. This hoary old-
timer, uno might almost &ay "forty-
niner," has beeu accustomed, let it be
hereby explained, to see young men
dress in a quiet and manly muiuioi',
after tlio fashion of tho royal city, and
hu ia not, therefore, lo be charged
with "htiyseedineBs" or verdancy because he was struck agbust at thu sight
of 11 real, live, moving, eastern "dudu"
who was standing on tliu corner uf
Cordova and Lineunda Btreets in Vancouver. In thu somewhat nblo bodied
vernacular of this original "old block,"
ho waa "flnbbergasted clear out
n' sight." "By gum, Btr, I never
in;vi-r in all my life thought I'd live tu
sue anything like that." He Baid tho
"thing" had a collar on that rasped ttie
I "lies of his ears and made him appear
liko a calf looking ovor a whituwuahed

barbel's pole; a littlo briml-.h> hut 011
his head aud a pane of glass tied with
.1 string stuck in his eye; mulpiuitswith
euough cloth in them to start a tailoring shop. Tho old gentleman followed
this apparition about the streets for some
time until "it" disappeared up thu
front bteps uf the Hotel Vancouver, assiduously sucking the head of "its"
emu. It seems that thia ia the what
d'ye call it that spoke the famous graco

ley Campbell's beautiful piny of the

Highly E'utcrlafnlni'.
A former British Columbian, Judgo
Laidlaw, of Oakland, Cul, in imbued
with a true senso of justice, and ia
evidently woll fitted to hold tho high
position he occupies. An Oakland
despatch, dated yesterday, eays:
"Judgo Laidlaw in tho police court
this murning fined himself 850 for
being drunk and disorderly. Ho rend
a statement confessing hia error, pleading penitence, and promised lu resign
if ho gotn drunk again." A judge who
haa the moral courage to fine himself
for a misdemeanor, proves himself
worthy of a seat nn tho bench, and it
is likely our old friend will not suffer
iu the public confidence through this
straightforward eccentricity.
JudgeLaidlnwcame to British Columbia in June, 1888, as manager of
the British Columbia Packing Co., for
the estato of W. T. Coleman & Co., of
San Francisco. He was a lawyer by
profession, but was out of practice,
and undertook the management of tho
cannery to fill in the time. Ho re-
mained in Westminstor about four
months and then returned home, entered upon the practice nf hia profession and early this year was elected to
the position of police couit judge.
During hia stay in this city Judge
Lnidlaw made many friends, who will
ull be intensely amused when they
learn of hia latest Buntence.

Tho remains of Captain C. M. Mc*

military honors. A vory large concourse of frionds attended the funeral,
and a detachment of No. 1, Bittery,
B.C. G. A., the late captain's command, under the command of Lieutenant Mowat, atteuded as a firing parly. At 1:30 p. m. the military left
the drill shod and proceeded tu Cap-
tniu McNaui'hten's late rcasdeuce on

wended ils way slowly down Iho hill
to the Baptist Churoh. Tho Rev.
Thos. Baldwin performed the funeral
servico, and at its conclusion thecurtego
proceeded by wuy of Columbia st. to
tho Oddfellows' cemetry at Sapperton.
The day was perfect, and ouo of tho
most beautiful that bus beon seen for
Borne timo. Tlie frost had hardened
the mud and mado walking comfortable. Flags flow at half mast in many
places in tho city, nnd tho esteem in
which the deceased was held could be
noted in tho deep interest whioh the
people along the line of march took in
the funeral. Thero was a largo attendance of carriages, und many persons
followed on foot. On reselling the
cenibtery tho military opened and resting on their arms reversed allowed the
hearao and funeral proccBsinu to pass
through; thon, whon the wurk of interment hud been concluded they fired
threo volleys over tho gravo, nocording
tot lio old citatum,und then marched back
in column nnd dispersed nt headquarters. The smart soldier-like appear-
