i-f about 22 years, und appears like a

COL. i'MOR AT OTTAWA.
Ottawa,Dec. 18.—Ool, Prior, M.P.,
has arrived from British Columbia to
urge upon the government tho necessity for rescinding tho order which
prohibits American steamers on Puget
Sound from carrying bonded freight
betweon American and Canadian ports.
Col. Prior states that he has reason to
beliove that tho order will be immediately rescinded. The Behring
sea. Col. Prior says, dues not appear
to j-ivo scaling vessel owners much
concern, as thoy aro making preparations for sending out a much larger
fleet than eror. The fact that so few
seizures were mado lust season indicates, they argue, a weakening on tho
part of the U. S., though, while the
matter is iu abeyance, that country
does not wish to admit a complete
surrender of its claim of exclusive
jurisdiction in Behring sea, by withdrawing the protect ivo cruisers. Col.
Prior claims to have reason for stating
tlmt tho British government has
pressed the quostion of settlement
upon the United States with moro
telling effect than is generally believed.
COLORED CHRISTIANITY.
Kansas City, Dec, 17.—An eleotion
in the First Baptist (colored) church,
ill Kansas City, Kansas, culminated
last night in a riot. Two men woro
dangerously injured and a numbor
seriously hurt. The dangerously injured uro Benjamin and Wright. It
was thu occasion of a mooting of tho
membors of tho ohurch organization to
select oflicers. Tho pastor, Uov. J.
It. Jones, presided, but tho members
hostile to him outnumbered his supporters, Whenever a motion against
the pastor's intorest was made, he
called on those present to pray. Aftor
prayor tho motion would bo ronewed
nnd the pastor would again interrupt
by again calling for prayer. Thus
businoss wus blocked for two hours.
Another call for prayor raised a riot,
hymn books and chairs being thrown,
Thon razors were usod, elmira pounded
over tho heads of somo of those present and a scene of pandemonium
rclgnod for somo time.

WHAT ABOUT 1*0011 CUON1N ?
Chicago, Dee. 17.—Tho friends of
tho four prisoners convicted yesterday,
called on them this morning and ex-
I'M sied their sympathy. Mrs. Cough*
bu leaned against the bars of lho
prisoners' cage aud sobbed as though
hur hoatt would break, while her husband whispered such words of cum*
fort and consolation ns ho could command. Sullivan's sister, accompanied
by her husband, paid tho iceman a
visit; she wept bitterly ovor hor
brother's fato; Ivunzo's sweetheart nnd
a lady friend visited him; the littlo
(ivrman was cheerful nnd tried to
choor thom up. No ono called to nee
Burko nnd he did not seem to feel hurt
at his isolation, and still maintains tho
cool deiucnor that always characterized hint. The prisoners, now that
tho suspense of tho trial of waiting for
a verdict is over, havo no doubt taken
heart and look forward with hope to
tho possibilities of a new trial, Thoy
will not be taken to the penitentiary
unlil a motion for a new trial is passed
by tho supreme court, and they think
the process will consume a year or
more.

GENEROUS   MEN.
Zanzibar, Dec. 18.—At the banquet
given by Consul-General Evan Smith,
Stanley spoke in glowing terms nf the
g'od qualities of the Zaiizibaris who
were with bis part** on the trip across
Africa. He practically gave them the
credit of saving the expedition by their
fitness and generosity. He said the
whole party were on the verge of starvation in the forests. The Zauzibaris
calleeted eatable fungi and gave
all tp the Europewu. This alone
kept them alive. The Zanzibar!* refused to touch food until after the
Europeans had eaten,

it was decidod to enlarge the capacity
of tlio mill four-fold. The matter of

it is under*tnod the general oilice will
be removed to the shores of Burrard
Inlet with a brunch oflico in this city,
However, tho brunch ullice will be
about the same thing us tho general

fi defective ehiuitiey leading Irom the
boiler used in heating the house, the

l'LBASANT REMINISCENCES.
London, Dec. 17.—Mr. -Browning
used often to speak to his friendi of
the only occasion on which he ever
spoke to tho Queen. Some years ago
the Ut o Dean of Westminster and Lady
August Stanley invited him, among
others, to tea at the deanery, to meet
H'o Queen, and a small, select party
were present, Carlyle being one of the
company. As was befitting in the
presence of their sovereign, they were
all respectfully silent, only joining in
the conversation when addressed by
the Queen. The Queen bogan to talk
to Carlyle, and expressed her opinion
on a matter with whioh he differed,
and he, u usual, contradicted and silenced her. As the Queen left the
room sho stopped at the door to speak
to Mr. Browning and say good-bye, remarking, "What a very remarkable
man Mr. Carlyle is; does ho alwayi
talk like that? I never met him before." Mr. Browning was only able
to assure her that it was his invariable
custom,

crime ai had the operationi of the
land league. Tbe object of the home
rule movement in Ireland, he said,
was the regeneration of the country,
especially industrially. Mr. Parnell
would not say that it was impossible
to govern Ireland by mere coercion,
but he would aay that Mr. Balfour's
method of coercion by constitutionalism would never succeed, Referring
to the special commission, he declared
thnt it had net tried the personal indictments against members andojiheri,
but had tried the Irish nation and the
movements of the Irish party. He
knew that the Times' letters were
forgeiies, but he would almost accept
deuth rather than the vindication
which had been offered to him,by the
government.
Mr. Parnell ipoke again this evening, devoting hii address to an explanation of the objects of the tenants'
defence league, which he said was the
most powerful and, at the same time,
most peaceful movement ever known
in Ireland or any other oountry. In
spits of coercion and her other ills, he
declared that Ireland was perfectly
tranquil under the assurances that Mr.
Gladstone would soon give to the
country and to her peoplo their legitimate freedom.
LICENSING BOARD.
The LlrenilM Cemwtsslsaers  C'aaeel
Two Ureases a** Kefase ats Ap*
pllcalloa for a New Lleeasn.
Tho licensing board of tho oity of
New Westminster sat this morning to
consider application! for lioenses.
There were present Messrs. John S,
Clute, James Cunningham, W, Wolfenden, George Turner, C, E.
His Worship Mayor Townsond in
the chair.
The olerk read the quarterly report
of the chief of police, which itated
that there had beon a marked improvement in the order kept in licensed
premises, in consequence of tho material decrease in drunkenness. Great
assistance was given in the prevention
and detection of crime by the absence
of pedestrians on the streets botween
the hours of closing and opening. With
the exception of one house there had
been no disposition to interfero with
the provisions of tho bylaw. He would
cull attention to chapter 69, see. 5, of
vol. 1, of the Consolidated Statutes of
British Columbia, whioh requires every
innkeeper to keep continuously exposed
in -every bedroom in his inn a copy of
the third section of said act. Compliance with this law would save hotel
keepers and the polico ooniiderable
trouble. He also suggested that hotel
registers bs kept in a better manner
than they are kept at present in somo
hotels. Those registers enable persons
to trace relations, and also give the
police considerable assistance in tracing
criminals by handwriting, eto. The
decrease of drunkenness has also less*
ened the number of crimes of the as*
sault, aggravated assault and murderous intent type. This he considered
very encouraging, as there had been
more money, owing to the success of
the fisheries, at the command of the
class who ordinarily commit such
crimes.   The report was adopted,
A communication was read from the
chief of polico in reference to the Occidental Hotel, and stating that the
present tenants, Gray Bros., aro not
fit and proper persons to conduct the
house. Mr. A. J. McColl appeared on
behalf of Mrs. Lena Eickhoff, the proprietress of the house.
Tho applications for license (renewals) wero as follows: W. Collier, Grotto
Hotel; T. Levi, American House; 11.
W. Mcintosh, Caledonia Hotel; James
Punch, Merchant-' Hotel; King &
Henry, Eickhuff House; Stewart &
Cash, Ctntral Hotol; Trustees of tho
Queen's Hotol; P. Bilodeau, Depot
Hotel; Jno. Rankin, Holbrook House;
Mrs. Mary Hogan, Telegraph Hotel;
A. J. Tolmie, Club Saloon; George
Raymond, Colonial Hotel; Thomas
Cleland, Cleveland Hotel; L. F. Bonson, Liverpool Arms; Jas. M. Blackie,
Steamboat Exchange; Samuel Woods.
■London_Arros; W. H. Lilly, Hub Sa*.
Patterson & Co.,
loonj   Bell-Irving ..._.,
wholesale wine and spirit merchants;
.Times Tesrney, Senate saloon (new
license).
The board, on hearing the communications ot the chief of police read in
reference to those places, retired to
consider the applications. The communication in reference to the London
Arms stated that the proprietor had
harbored boys under age, allowed
gambling, and that the applicant
should be cautioned before the license
was renewed. The license laat year was
granted under a speoial caution which
did not seem to have had much effect
On the return of the board the chairman
announced that all the applications
were granted except in the eases of
Gray Bros., Occidental hotel; Jas.
Tearney, Senate salcon; and Samuel
Woodi, London Ami,
Of the first the board had deoided
that they would issue a license to
Mrs. Eickhoff if Bhe would get rid of.
the present tenants, Gray Bros., and
have the hotel running by the beginning of the year. Mr. McColl thought
this rather sudden, and said that if the
Gray Bros. Bhould see fit to tight the
case it would be impossible for Mrs.
Eickhoff to carry out the request of
the board. Tbe chairman explained
that if Mrs. Eickhoff got rid of the
objectionable parties and did her best
to have a suitable teuant on the prem -
ises about the time specified there was
no intention on the part of the board
to be harsh in the matter on account
of a day or two.
On the mattor of the Senate saloon
the board informed the applicant that
they had no jurisdiction in tho caso at
all. Mr. Tearney asked that the case
be adjourned a week, as his counsel,
Mr. Jenns, was not present. The
chairman informed Mr. Tearney that
that made no difference aa the board
had no power to deal with the ma'ter.
One of the Gray Bros, came forward
to the rail and demanded to know
what tho charges against him and his
brother were, The chiof of police produced a slip of paper and read from it
that there was a complaint from Mr.
McTieman to the effect thnt a Siwash
on one occasion was two hours in the
houso and when he came out of it lio
hadtwo bottles of whiskey in his possession. Tho neighbors complained
of tho noise continually going on in
tho house and could not get asleep for
it. A woman had complained that her
son had gono thore repeatedly and got
drunk. The chief read other charges
and clinched them by stating that lie
had seen gambling going on thore, and
had seen money on the tables for that
purpose. Ths house had been called
to order repeatedly, but the proprietors seemed incorrigible. The board
had nu alternative but to act decisively
in the matter. Gray had nothing to
sny, although he tried to deny the
charges at first; then he asked the
board to give him another chance. His
application was refused.
Of the London Arms, the board said
the place had suoh a bad reputation,
that no license would be issued.
S Woods stood up in the auditorium
and asked permission to say a few
words, whioh was granted. He said
that he had tried his best to keep boys
from coming around his place, but pro*
bsbly attracted by tho billiard and
pool tables, they would como and play
there in spite of his remonstrances.
He thought he had run the house in
an orderly manner right along, and
was at a loss to understand how the
chief oould prefer such charges against
him. The chief, he was sure, hsd
nevor seen any gambling going on in
the London Arms, that report must
have oome from outside parties, animated by spite against him, and
who wished to do him harm. Ho
said thnt as ho hsd laid in a big stock
of liquors, cigars, and other goods for
the winter, it would come pretty hard
on him, and he thought ho deserved
something elso then this from the
boft.'d for all he had done for the city.
He had interested himsolf in the base*
ball and lacrosse boys during oxhibition week, and had helped them in
every way; he oould not help it if they
(the boys) did come around him, and
made reference to a son of ono of the
members of the board, who frequented
hia establishment. The chairman
notified Mr. Woods that the board
were determined to carry out their intention with regard to his place,
Mr, Clute then addressed tho moot*
inc. He said roforenco had been made
to his son frequenting Wood's place; it
was only too tree, and he (tho speakor)
could tell the people in this court
something about the placo that would
make them shudder. That place would
be a disgrace to tho lowest dives of
New York city, lot alone a little, out*
oftho*wav town like Westminster.
Ho could produce good proofs that
prostitutes had been harbored in the
place, that boys under ago had played
poker with the proprietor after ohuroh
hoars on Sunday; and he oould produce
letters written him by men who had
frequented the house and whoso evidence was incontestable, to bear out
what he had satd.
Mr. Woods denied the charges made
against him-by Mr. Cluto, and uid ho
would defy any man to point tho finger
of scorn nt his character; he had kept
a good house, and it wat an attempt of
outside people to injure him. Poker
wai a game he never played under
any circumstances. He threatened
that ho would see the matter further.
Mr. Olute reiterated several of hii
former statements.
The oourt adjourned at 11;30 a.m, **s=

THE WEEKLY COLUMBIAN
iMH-icil every We-lut-hduy Homing,
Satis f ritiflfh tSoismbian
Wedneiday Evening, Dee. is, isw.
By the report  of  tho  liconsing
board's meeting, in nnotlior column,
it will boseeu that that body does not
beliove in making Us sessions merely
formal affairs, but, on tlio Qohtrary,
exorcises u  vigorous discfiimuation
in tho performance of its duties. As
a result   of  its  deliberations   this
morning, thirteen hotels hnvo beon
granted a renewal of their   licenses,
and three saloons, while  ono hotel
liconse has been suspended (subject
to the dismissal of the present tenants), one saloon   license   cancelled
altogether, and another now application refused.   In tho matter of
this new application, that   of   Mr.
Jaa, Tearney for the Senate saloon,
tho licensing board stated that they
had no jurisdiction.   Tho explanation of this ground  taken   by the
board will be found in   the  liquor
license by-law passed last June and
in the amendment to that by-law of
September   last.   Sub-section 2 of
section 13 of  the  original by-law
provides thnt, "from and nfter the
passing of this by-law  the  number
of saloon licenses issued, or to be issued, shall not exceed ten, and if nt
any time  this  number  should bo-
come reduced, through revocation or
other causos, no other or more saloon
licenses  shall   be  granted in lieu
thereof."   To obviate  any  pretext
of a possible ambiguity in the above,
section 2 of tho amendment, passed
in September, provides as  follows:
"but no now saloon licenses shall be
granted until tho number  of existing saloon   licenses   shall  have become reduced to one."   It will thus
bo seen   that   the   licensing board
were perfectly correct   when   they
stated that they had no jurisdiction
in the matter of   new applications.
With regard to the   action   of   tho
board in cancelling the license of the
London Arms saloon and suspending that of the Occidental hotel,
every unprejudiced citizen will agree
that they had amplo grounds for so
doing in tbo   report  of   Inspector
Pearce nnd from other evidence. On
thn whole the report of tho inspector contains matter for   congratulation, in the   decreased drunkenness
and better order shown since the
new liquor license by-law came into
force in Jnne last.   Since that time,
nlso,   a   satisfactory    decrease   in
nloon   lieense3   has  taken   place.
The licensing bonrd, it will bc remembered,  cancelled  two at their
first session, last summer.   By their
action this  morning, and owing to
the fact that Mr. Tolmie, of the
Club, takes out a hotel instead of a
saloon license, ns formerly, tho saloons proper in tho city have been
reduced to three, tho Steamboat Exchange,  tbe  Liverpool Arms, and
the Hub.     The proprietor of the
latter, it is understood, has no intention  to- open  up that resort, so
that practically there are now only
two saloon licenses instead of the
seven  which   existed a little over
six months ago.
This  Bpooks would appear to bo
holding high carnival in some of the
eastern   provinces  just now, if we
inny judge by the seriousness with
which reports of preternatural  phenomena aro treated   by   the   press.
A few weeks ago the Toronto Mail
devoted over n column of its editorial space to a recital, in n mock-
surious tone, of tho alleged strango
sayings and doings of a most eccentric antl troublesomo  ghost   which
choso to make ito unwelcome manifestations in the household of a Mr.
George Pugg, of Clarendon, county
of Pontine,  Ontario.   Tho manifestations, according to the accounts,
were both visible and audible, Windows in the Pugg castlo woro broken in broad   dny   light   by   heavy
stones thrown at them by invisible
hands, articles of furnituro executed
all sorts   of   uu accountable capers,
ond variations wore introduced by
curtains and  blinds bursting into
flame and a mouth organ beginning
to pley of itself  and   taking an involuntary   trip   across  the  room.
These strange performances naturally got noised abroad and many people visited the Pugg mansion to aeo
and  hoar for themselves.   Among
others was a Mr. Percy Woodcock,
a well known artist and member of
the Royal Society   of  Canada, and
an intelligent and honest man.   Mr,
Woodcock would  appear  to  have
come on the scone in time to catch
the spook in a now .humor.   It had
reduced itsolf to a gruff voico, which
was heard in  the woodshed and do-
.. dared tho speaker to be the Evil
One himsolf, and   the  language it
used wm said to. be quite in keeping
with tho claim.   Upon Mr. Wood
onok remonstrating, however, against
tbo uso  of  sueh  vile language, it
apologized nnd asked to be forgiven.
The interview was quite a Jpngthy
ono, and tho voico discussed a number of questions, ono of whieh was
a boundary dispute whioh Pagghad
with n neighbor, and whioh, it declared, was the cause of the manifestations.   (Perhaps tho neighbor
had hired hia satanio majesty by the
day to bring Dagg to time.)   The
voioe finally promised to leave tlie
plaoe aud announced that it would
tako its departuro on tho following
Sunday. Accordingly a goodly number of Pagg's neighbor's, instead of
going to church, attended a sort of a
farewell reception to the unearthly
visitant. An ngreoablo surprise
awaited them. Instead of indulging in gruff and vile language, the
voico had attuned itself to sacred
melody and sang many sweet hymns,
somo of them being original. Receiving an enthusiastic encore from
tho delighted audience, Ihe invisible
vocalist obligingly remained for more
than an hour after tho timo fixed
for its departure, regaling its audience with religious hymns of its own
composition, sung in a delightful
soprano voico. A young woman by
the name of Dinah is said to be
mysteriously connected with this alleged strange case. Sho is described
as a young girl who wns once stoub
and healthy, but who has becomo
thin and delicate. Dinah declared
that sho had seen the disturber of
the Pugg household iu various
guises, once as a toll gentleman
with a cow's head mid cloven hoofs,
then as a dog, nnd another time ns an
old gentleman with long white hair
with a crown upon his head. She
also declares thnt she witnessed its
departure and that it then assumed
the form of n. venerable old man and
that it wont up iuto the air enveloped in Jinnies, Rcfcring again to
the abovo case, tho other .day, the
Mail makes tho remark, in another
lengthy editorial, headed "Two
Canadian Ghosts," that "curiously
onough, lho disappearance of tlio
Pontiac spirit was promptly followed
by a similar outbreak in St. John,
N. J!,," and adds: "Ono would almost imagine thnt the Pontine visitor had taken tho new short Hue to
its eastern terminus with a view to
giving nn exhibition there. But
this can hardly bo the case, for the
St. John ghost is colored. Moreover, the Pontiac ghost was heard
and not seen, whereas the St. John
ghost is seen and  not heard	
The St. John ghost is, it appears,
tho troubled spirit of tho'late Mr.
Jackson, formerly a prominent aud
influential barber of that city. It
has made it its business during tho
lastf ew days to visit tho widow
Jackson and appears to follow the
example of tho spirit of Alonzo the
Brave, and 'spoke not, and moved
not, and looked not-around,' In
order to escape the posthumous attentions of her husband. Mrs, Jackson called in the clergy. Rev. Mr,
Lawson visited the house in response
to her appeals, but was quite unable
to detect a ghost upon tho premises.
Rev. Hi A. S. Hartley, B. A., was
then summoned. After making
suro that the lady was not intoxicated, ho examined the various
rooms. In a bed he found the form
of a man which, though he could
see it, ho could not feel. Shortly
afterwards ho observed a chocolato-
colored man sitting in a chair, and
subsequently the man walked with
him from tho bedroom to tho parlor.
This was the ghost. Moro than
that, it was Mr. Jackson's ghost.
Mr. Jackson was clean-shaven in
his lifetime; the ghost was also
clean shaven; therefore the ghost
was that of Mr. Jackson. At least
such was Mrs. Jackson's argument.
Now tho rev. gentleman thought it
wns time to do something, so, according to a local paper, he read
Psalms in English and Latin and
finally resorted to the old exorcisms
of tho Roman church. Theso wero
successful, but not permanently so,
for tho ghost revisited tlie premises,
indicating its presence to the satisfaction of a committee of four colored men by disturbing the bed
clothes in tlio darkened bedroom in
which tho committee had assembled.
It is evident that notwithstanding
tlio Latin and the exorcism Jackson's ghost is undaunted. Probably
tho rev. gentleman has nob used the
Latin exorcisms to lho best advantage. He should have read them
backwards. Latin sentences read
wrong end foremost are very powerful with* ghosts. That is to say,
thoso who believo in ghosts so maintain." Sensible peoplo, whilo being
prepared to admit that thero may
be many things in heaven and earth
that are not fully accounted for in
current philosophy, will tako all
such sensational stories as the above
with a very largo allowance of salt,
Jf exhaustively enquired into, it
would probably bo found that in
nine cases out of ten tho "ghost"
was a fraud. In the tenth caso it
might bo impossiblo to got to the
bottom of tho matter, but that
would not necessarily prove that
tnoro was no reasonable explanation
possiblo. Ghosts will have to be a
great deal moro plentiful, and give
people generally a chnnco to investigate: their freaks, boforo people of
senso will tako nny stock in such
manifestations,
Eight thousand Montroalors took
the temperance pledge in Ht. Jean
Baptisto Church on a recent Thursday night. Tho Redemptorist
Fathers had been holding a mission
there and that night Father Htrubbo
delivered a most powerful temperance sermon lasting two hours. His
two points v/ore that the liquor
traflic poisons the community morally and that liquor as a beverage is
a poison. At the olose of the sermon thoso willing to tako tho pledge
wero asked to riso and remain. The
vast congregation arose en masse,
less than 20 leaving the church.
Then for noarly nn hour tho congregation filed past tho altar, taking a
temperanco pledge,—the great majority for lifo, and tho rest for stated
periods,—not to drink to excess and
not to ontor a saloon bar. Many of
tho congregation wore known to bo
drunkards.—Ex.

SHERIDAN'S  RIDE.
Uii from the south at tbo break of day,
' 'Bt-injrtnit to Winchester fresh dismay, ■
The i.HVi(jh.e(l air with a shudder bore,
l.il-o it l. m nid in haste, to the chieftain'* door,
1 The ton-.blo crumble, and rumble, and roar.
I Telling the battle was on once more, **
j And Sheridan twenty miles away.
And wilder still those billows of war
Thundered along the horizon's bar,
Aud louder yot Into Winchester rolled
Tliu ronr of that red sea uncontrolled.
Malting tho blood ot the listener cold        ••***
ag l-.c thought of tho stal-o in that fiery fray, *•
With Sher.dan twenty miles away.
nut there's a road from Wlnohostor town*
A good, broad highway leading down;
And there, thro' tho flash of the morning light,
A steed as black as tho steeds of night
Wjs seen to pass as with eagle flight-
As if he ltncw the terrible need,
ih; stretched away with tho utmost speed;
Hills roso and foil-but bis heart was gay,
With Sheridan fifteen miles away.
Undor his spurning feet the road
Lilco an arrowy Alpine river flowed,
And the landscape flowed away behind,
Lil-e an ocean flying before the wind;
a nd the steed, like a bark fed with furnacfl Ire,
Su-opt on with bis wild eyes full of Orel
Uutlol ho Is nearing hiB heart's desire.
Ho is snuffing the smoke ot tho roaring fray,
With Sheridan only five mues away,
\ The first that the General saw wera the groups
1 01 stragglers, and then tho retreating troops;
j What was dono-what to do-o glance told him
both.
And, striking his spurs, with a terrible oath
I lie dashod down the Hues 'mid a storm o( bur
runs,
And the ware of retreat checked Its course
there because
I Tho sight of the master compelled ft to pause.
With foam and with dust tha blaok charger
Was gray;
i By tho flash ofohls eye and his nostrils' play
, He teemed to tho whole great army to say;
"I hnve brought you Skeridan all tbe way'
From Winchester town to save the dsy?"
I Hurrah! hurrah! forSherldanl
Hurrah I hurrahl for bono and maul
And when their statues are placed oa high,
«. Under tbe dome of the union sky—
I Tho American soldier's temple of fame—
VTbere, with tbo General's glorious name,
Bo it said, In letters both bold and bright:
[ "Hero Ib the steed that saved the dsy

: Nad Armstrong's "Jolly "Bideon
an Ice-Oako.
;   " Say, Hal, lob's go and aee tbem dynainit-
'. in/; tbo ice,*1
"'Where Is lt, and what's dynamiting, any
way?"
i " Why, ovor thero behind tbe railway
bridgo they're blowtofr up the ice with dyn*
a inito. Kind of powder, you know, only ten
limes worse, father says. Must be fun to
sen it going off. Come along. A lot of tho
fellows havo gono ovor already."
" AU right, Ned. Just hold on until I put
my books In the house, and then I'm with
*£0U."
Anu the school-books havingbocn disposed
of, the two hoys hurried away to the railway bridgo.
Tlio Hldeau river had risen, overflowed its
bunks, and invaded the village pf New Edinburgh. Running streams too deep to
cross except in boats had taken the place of
tho streets; instead of yards tho peoplo
looked outupon muddy ponds in whoso swirl*
Ing waters chips, logs, boxes and barrels
Hunted about and only the buildings stood
noovo ttio wator; all else in that neighborhood was submerged, and Hal Roberts,who,
in company with tho "Bodloys" had just
been doing Venice, thought thatoll Ne*w Edinburgh now needed was half a dozon gondolas and a Doge's palaco to be a little
Venice on hor own account
Tn Hal and Ned the flood seemed fine fun,
especially since from their homos being on
the high ground thoy woro not mode uncomfortable by it, and they watched its
progress with groat Interest. For a whole
week tbo water had beon Rteadilyj-isjng as
tho hot spring sunshine blued away at the
itnmenso snow drifts which lay along the
rlvor banks. Had it not been for tho Ice
tho water would have run off all right
enough, and gono roaring and splashing
ovor UioRIdeau Falls into tho broud Ottawa.
But tho ice was so thick and solid that it
melted slowly and tho river-bed being full
of it the water was quito dammed up, and
could hot get away. At last Borne bright
person had thought of blowing up this Ico
barrier with dynamite, and eager to try
any thing the poor flooded folk had jumped
at the idea, and woro putting lt into oxecu-
' tion.
A number of mon were at work whon
breathless with running Hal and Ned appeared upon tho scene; and this was tho
way thoy went about it. With long sharp
crow-bars they drilled a deep holo into tbe
icc-floo Borne distance from tbe edge, tho
dynamite cartridgo was slipped cautiously
in with tho detonator and fuso attached,
and then overy body having made off to a
nafo distance, tho chargo was exploded, a
dull heavy concussion filled tho air, tho ice
sprang high out of tho water and fell book
in fragments, and great cracks showed
themselves in tho ouce solid icc-flold. After
that tho men bod only to push and pry a littlo in ordor to send hugo pieces off into the
current that was rushing fiercely down its
I'onllucd passage, where they wore borno
rapidly along until they leaped over the
Falls into tho Ottawa below.
Intent and excited the two boys watched
tho work for some timo, crowding in closo
whon tho holes woro being driven, taking a
last peep at tho cartridge, that looked ao
innocent but could do so much damage, as
tho man slipped it carefully into its place,
then scampering off to a safo distance on
tlm warning boing given, and shouting
with delight when the explosion took place,
and tho ico splintered up into fragments
with a rattling crush. Then aa tho great
ja-rged cake* woro detached from tho main
body, nnd sent soiling away, tho boys would
follow thom down a piece, eaeh solooting
ono nnd playing at racing wltb it until it was
time to got baok for the neat explosion. •
Hal was so delighted with tbe proceedings
that ho could have watched them the whole
aftornoon; but Ned soon began to tire, and to
cant iibont for somo variation in tholr
iiiuust'iiumt. Now there was not a more
rush, headstrong boy In the whole village
than Nod Armstrong. No other ringleader
in feats of daring or uilscbiof was needed
whon he mode ono of the crowd, and this
afternoon as he watched tho big Ice-cakes
floating ohl so smoothly and swiftly down
tho current, it flashed, into his mind—how
jolly it would bo to havo a ride on ono ol
thom l What a splondid raft it would make 1
In viow of tho danger any ordinary boy
would not havo entertained tho idea for a
moment. It was nothing short of madness.
But Nod wus not an ordinary boy. You could
hurdly havo offended bim more than by hinting that ho was. To be out ot the ordinary
was hia prido and delight.
" Say, Hal," he burst out suddenly.■• I've
got it. Tho bost fun you over had in your
life!"
11 What is iti" answered Hal, eagerly.
"Why,to have a rido on one of those
cukes. It'll bo a first class circus."
"Chutl Ned. You wouldn't dare try
that."
"JeBt wouldn't II Come along. We'll
stand on that point until a big ono comes by,
and then jump on. Wo can jump off again
whon wo liko, you know."
So saying Ned Armstrong ran out to a
point whoro tbo current turnod tho cornor,
as it wore, and lho cakes In passing rubbed
closo against it so that thoro was no difficulty in gotting on board ono ot thom.
Partly carried away by his companion's
example, nnd partly In hopes ot dissuading
I lim from his fool-hardy project, Ual, who
was a rattier cauttnus, prudent lad, followed
closo on Ned's hcols, and tn another moment thoy woro standing together on the
•ptn.it with tho groat loo cakes whirling past
at their very foot
"Now then, Hal,"[cried Ned. ''We'll
each jump on ono, snd havo a race la dead
earnest. Wo con jump off, you know, boforo wo como to tho roud-bridgo."
"No.no, Nodi It's too dangerous," urged
Hul, now raalislng the folly of tbo thing.
Tut, man, you'ro afraid; you've got no
pluck," retorted Nod.
"I'voplonty of pluck, Ned. You needn't
say that But I'm not going to make a fool
of myself," returned Hal, warmly.
"Who's a fooll Como along—If you'ro
not a coward," cried Ned, growing angry
too.
'• I won't, Ned, und you shan't.either if I
can heip it." And suiting his action to his
word Hal caught hold of Ned's arm.
"Jost you tako your hands off me, softy—
I'm offl You can go homo to your mother,"
sneered Ned, and breaking away from.his
companion ho sprang out upon a largo cako
which just tbon rubbed against tho point,
and went careering down tho current, exclaiming boastfully* "How is this for
funP
Completely taken aback at Ned's suddon
action Hal stood motionloss for a moment,
gazing upon his playmate speeding along to
what ho folt suro was certain death. Then,
fulloffoar, he ran ovor the ice after him
calling out:
NedlNedljumpoffI You'll go over tho
Falls!"
But Ned's only answer was to take oft
bis hat and swing It round his head with a
shout:
"Hurrah for the ico-shlp! What a timo
wearohttviwrl"
Undor tlio dark arch of the railwuv
bridgo, and out upon tho other sido tlio ico-
cako wllh its foolish freight rushed rapidly,
itspaco increasing every minuto. Boon it
reached tho broad expanse botween tho
railway and tho road bridges, and Hul, who
was doing his boBt to keep up, noted with
increased alarm that it kept woll out In tho
middle of tho current so that it waa impossiblo for Nod to jump off, try as hurd us
ho might. AU at onco, Ned apparently
noticed thia too, and began to show signs of
alarm, running from sido to side of the
swaying ice-raft, and anxiously mciisuriii',*
tho distanco between it nnd tho bordor-ico.
Just bosido tho road bridgo thoro was un
oddy whore tho wator curlod about tho
shoro abutment. If the ico-cako only got
into that eddy its passenger would bo all
safe.
Ned's danger had now become known, and
tho shoro was lined with peoplo watching
hiB perilous voyage, and shouting to him all
sorts of advico. Ono man, instead of wasting timo in giving advice, procured a long
ropo, and going out to the extreme edgo of
tho stationary ico flung it towards Nod, who
grasped frantically at it, but it fell short,
and tho cako wont on its woy more rapidly
thon ever.
Tho road-bridge drew near, but tho ice-
cako atill kept well out in tho center of tbo
current, and there seomoa smalt chanco of
Its getting into tho eddy. Frantic with four,
Ned Armstrong seized his hat and using it
as a paddle mado desperate efforts to guido
his clumsy craft towards this-only' haven of
safety. But ho might as woll havo tried to
send it back against tho resistless current.
Tho ponderous ico-block utterly rofused to
bo guided. It went steadfastly on ita way,
dipping and raising as the hitherto smooth
surfaco otthe water broko up iuto turbulent whirls with tbo near approach of the
falls, whoso sullen roar already bogan to
mako itself distinctly heard.
In another minute the road-bridge would
be reached, and realizing that It wiu
tlie lust chanco, tho man who had tho ropo
ran with all his might towards tho span
undor which tho coke must pass, in order
to try another fling. Had ho only beon n
fow seconds sooner ho might havo succeeded. But ho was just that much too lato,
and again tho rope foil short, although Ned
nearly tumbled off tho ico in his ougor endeavor to secure it. A shout of horror went
up from the peoplo who lined tho rivor
banks and crowded the bridgo, gazing helplessly at tho unhappy lad sweeping so swiftly on.
Botwoon tho bridge and tho falls thero
now only remained an opon spaco, scarce
moro than a hundred yards in longth, in
which the waters, as if rebelling against
tho leap beforo thom, broko forth iuto
angry foam-crested waves in whose midst
the low-lying ice-raft was tossed and tumbled about so that tho boy upon it had hard
work to keep erect. Halt paralyzed with
terror, ho stood there in tho Bight of hundreds of his fellow-creatures, not ono of
whom oould inta**ptao betweon him and
death—a sight to wring tho stoutest heart.
Ono instant moro and he had taken tho
awful plunge.
But stay 1 A shout goes up trom tho agonized spectators, Who is it that comes
springing with tremendous strides across
tho frail-looking structure which spans tho
river at i tho very odgci of tho falls-tho
'■stop-log bridgo" tbey call it, becauso in
summer timo when tho river is low it dams
up tho water so that tho mill wheels may bo
woll supplied. In freshet timo tho furious
swollen stream rises to a few foot from tho
top, and it is along tbo narrow footway that
a man, who Is at once recognized as "Big
Aloe," tho stalwart foreman of tho mill, is
now seen rushing along. The ico-cako
dashes swiftly towards the "stop-log," but
"Big Aloe" is quicker. Ho reaches tho
spot right under which tho cake must pass
in Its headlong rush, ho flings himself fnco
downward on tho beams, ho leans far over
tho edgo, his long, sinewy arms stretched
to tholr utmost length. And straight
toward him comes the Ice-cake. Ho shouts
fiercely. Ned, looking up, sees him. Uo
understands. Ho turns to faoe him. und,
just as tbo shadow of tbo bridge falls upon
tho ice, he puts all his strength into ono
wild leap towards the outstretched anr-s-
ho does not miss thom-ho fs caught fast in
thoir iron grlp-and for ono awful moment
ho sways above tho raging torrent; tho
spectators bold their breath In sickening
apprehension; thon with a gigantic effort
"Big Alec" swings tho boy clear up upou
tbo bridgo, and stands beside bim trembling
in overy nerve and musolo, whilo a shout
tbat rivals the roar of tho falls goes up from
tho overjoyed on-lookors.
Ono of the flrst to be at Nod Armstrong's
side was Hal Roberts, the tears of joy
streaming down his cheeks as ho threw his
arms around his playmate who bad thus
been saved on tho vory brink.—J. Macdonald

Dependence and Independence.
A thimble, a needlo and a piece of thread
wero all lying on a lady's work tablo togothor, tells a wrltor in Little Folks. Now,
tbo needlo bad rather a hasty temper, and
could glvo sharp pricks whon it pleased,
and this morning it was out of sorts, so it
triad to plok a quarrel with tbo thimble,
and said, spitefully: "You gavo moi-omu
hard knocks yesterday, and I wish you
would bo moro gentle in the futuro." " It
is truo, I do push you hard, sometimes*,"
answered tho thimble," but you known it is
only when you do not do your work properly, and our mistress makos me keep you up
to tt." "Pray, don't you two quarrel," suld
the thread, wishing to bo pcacoinn]-cr.
"You mind your own business," retorted
the needle. "Uy business is your badness," said tho thread, " for you aro no use
without mo, and I am none without you."
"That's just it," said tho thimble. "A
great deal of nonsense is talked lu this
world about being Independent, but my
own oDinlon is that peoplo should try to help
ono (mother, for, trom tho highest lo the
lowest, wo are all vory dependent on the
good services of our neighbors for something or othor ovory day ot our livos,"

- It will be learned with general regret of thu suspension of the Commercial Milli-, False Oreek, owned by

of creditors has been called for Monday, Dec 23rd. The causo uf suspension is due to lowness of prices and
over-production for local supply. Tho
assets art considerably greater than

menta will be made for continuing tho

SerltUA Accident.
By tho explosion of a cartridge,
while loading his gun, Alex. Cameron,
of Langley I'rairie, yesterday Buffered
a severe accident, by whioh the thumb,
flrst, second and fourth fingers of his
hand wore badly shattered. Tho injured man came to Westminster and
placed himself undor the care of Dr.
Cooper, who dressed the wounds and
removed tho fragments of skin and
flesh. Dr. Coopor says the wounds
aro of a very disagreeable nature, and
it is quite possible Cameron will loso
his thumb, Amputation, however,
will uot be made unless it becomes an
absolute necessity.
A Great Saving

lho engineers havu ascertained that
tho pipo can bo laid over thu capo, thus
shortening tho main by 3,000 feet and
reducing tho cost of the lirst estimate
by 80,000. This is a great saving and
cannot but bo satisfactory to the r.ito-

Au Important Mission,
Chief Ackerman of tho iiro department left for Victoria this afternoon
to attend, by special invitation, tho
trials of tho new Merry weather engine,
aikUiook and ladder truck, which will
be 'mndo at that city to-morrow.
These trials aro the beat moans of obtaining information and experience in
connection with tho latest liro machinery, and it is with thu object of keeping fully posted in his important duties
that chief Ackorman hns gone to Victoria. On his return thu chiof will
report on tho trials to thu city council,
and at thu sumo time advise that body
on lho merits of tho engines ns acor-
tniiu'-l by tho tests.
That mm HUtd.
There iu a middling fair prospect of
that old rookery and venorablo ruin,
the drill shed, beiug removed from its
present site and rebuilt in a more control location, nnd on a scale moro
noarly approaching the wants of tho
militia. Failing all demands, applications aud petitions of the military
authorities, the city council lias taken
the mattor in hand and will request
the government to remove tho unsightly old relic, noil the lot it stands
on and rebuild elsewhere. Tho government may bo induced by the representations of tho council to bring
about tho desired chango, but whon
tho repeated urgings of the deputy
adjutant-gouornl have had no effect, it.
is doubtful if anything will move tho
department at Ottawa to action except
tho collapse of the building itself.

Miss Essie Tittell and her tatentcd
company met with another warm reception at the opera house last night,
when "The Moonshiners, ur tho
Mountain Waif," waa put on tho
boards. Miss Tittell played the difficult role of "Sincerity" with a fine
display of dramatic talent, and to tho
satisfaction of the whole audience, who
were never tired of showing their appreciation of her in applause. Tho
play throughout was well sustained,
and so good was tho acting evon in tho
minor parts that Miss Tittell and her
company were more than ever favorites with the audience.
"The White Slave," a grand spec*
hcular drama in six: acts, will bo played
this evening. This is the masterpiece
of the company, and all who nro fond
of good acting should not fail to attend
this ovening.

Tho Choral Union concert last evening in Odd Follows' Hall was, musically, n grand success. It was pitiful
to note tho small numbers of the audience, tho hall being very thinly filled.
But what the audience lacked in quantity it made amplo amends for in quality
and appreciation. Thoohoirc onsistod of
forty ladies and gentlemen, two of the
latter being from Victoria. It ia safe
to say that every ono in tho audionco
was fairly taken by surprise by tho
manner in which tho music was rendered. There woro many who had
attended expecting to hear somo piping
amateur affair, and went away with
very much altered opinions about the
powers of tho Westminster Choral
Union, _ The instrumental part of the
entertainment, Mn. Pearson at the
piano and Mr. Morey at tho organ,
was a treat in itsolf, and under the deft
manipulation*: of those two accomplished musicians the full beauties of
the instruments wore brought out to
perfection. Bishop Sillitoe's wielding
of the conductor's magic wand was
masterly, and tho fine training of the
choir showed itself in their faithful
obedience to the movements of tho
leader's, hand. The difficult timing
and chromatic shadings with which the
choruses of Handel fairly bristlo, wero
splendidly treated both by leader and
choir; the chorus work was really
magnificent, and the intricate braaks,
falls, swells, thunders of harmony and
euphonious, melting melodies and oo-
c'sinnuls, perhaps peculiar only to
Handel's choruses, were rendered in n
manner that left, even from tho must
critical, little to bo desired. The recitative was, on tho whole, well done,
and although it may be hard to choose
from so many good singers, it must be
noted that tho work of Mrs, Sillitoe
and Mrs. Lyal was especially meritable,
and their interpretations of the music
beyond praise. Messrs. Brown and
Kent, of Victoria, were assigned
parts for which thoir voices weru oral*
nuntly fitted. Their singing was a
genuine ploaauro to listen to; thoy are
both gifted with voices of rare compass, and of lhat ringing quality that
is as distinctly audible in piano as in
fortissimo,
Tho pastoral symphony wits rendered
in lino stylo, nnd as this is ouo of tho
departments of music in which Handel
was supremo, the audience had a good
opportunity to hear tho great master
in his gentler moods. It is wonderful
that the man who could compose the
tremendous choruses of "The Messiah" should have beeu ablo to beat
Haydn on his own ground. Mrs. Pearson and Mr. Morey seemed to appreciate fully thu soul and sweetness of
tho symphony, and excelled themselves
in their efforts.
Tho air, "1 know that my Redeemer
liveth," sung by Mrs. Sillitoe, was
beautifully done. Thia h probably
the sweetest air iu all tho oratorio, the
words uud music being wedded iu Iheir
fitness and beauty; the pieco suffered
no loss in Mra. Sillitoe's rendition.
The audionco heait'dy applauded the
singer. When the Hallelujah chorus was
reached and the choir dashed off into
the magnificent strain-', moat of tho
audienco rose to their foet and remained standing until tho finish.
Tho grand finale "Amen," wns an
effort worthy of the choir; it was grandly donu and sent tho audience away
feeling that Westminster possessed a
choir capable of doing justico tu the
most sublime works of musical genius.
And tn listen to such work ts a plensuro
tho culture and refinement of Athens,
Corinth nnd Rome knew not; it was
reserved for a luter era to enjoy this
best fruit of civilization uud Christian*
ity. Germany would not support the
mighty genius sho had produced, aud
England, to her eternal glory, took
Handel by Iho hand, and so, it may
truly bc said, "Tho Messiah" is hers.
And that is ono reason why thousands
of English peoplo always turn out to
the great festivals when Handel's
works are to bo performed. Bishop
Sillit ie has dono more tlian anyono in
Westminster to foster tho lovo for
high-class music, and ho desorves tho
hearty thanks of everyone for presenting such a splendid entertainment
that of lust night.

A telegram was received by the naval authorities on Saturday hist from
the Admiralty, England, ordering H.
M. S. Swiftsure to sail for homo next
Jauuary, and aho stating thnt shu will
bo relieved by iho lino warship War-
spite. When tho Swiftsure leaves
herb Vice-Admiral Henengo will go on
her us fur south as Coquimbio, when he
and his staff will take tho mail stsamor
for homo. TJio Wurspite will bo duo

will fly tho Hag of Rear-Admiral Hoth*
am, who, besides being a roar admiral
is also junior Lord of tho Admiralty.
Ho is said to bo a sailor aftor tho pattern of Lord Charles Beresford, of
"well-done Condor" famo, and is anxious tu see some of tho newest and
best warships of Her Majesty's navy
sent out and tho old ones ordered
home. In honor of the Swiftsure beiug ordered home, the band yestorday
ployed "Home, Sweet Home," on the
flagship and everybody was happy.
With the advent of tho Warspito, Victorians will look upon tho finest warship ever on the Pacific station,—

The Enemy ol salmon.
When tho British Columbia salmon
canners wero at Ottawa tho othor day
Ihey urged before the minister of fisheries thnt no protection should bo
givon to trout iu British Columbia
waters, for tho alleged reason that
these lish uro the natural enemies of
salmon, Mr, Wilmot, superintendent
of lish culture, on being asked for his
opinion on tho subject, said that trout
was no greater enemy to salmon than
any other fish which frequented these
waters. "The naturo nf all fish," said
Mr. Wilmot, "is to livo upon one
another, as they aro essentially animal
feeders, not vegetable. The large fish
will, no doubt, oat up tho smaller ones,
and vice versa, tho small fish will indirectly cat up tho largo ones. The
small fish prey largely upou the oggs
of the larger fish and in this way a sort
of balanco of nature is kept up. Trout
and Balmon were found living together
in tho normal stato of thoso waters nnd
woro originally very abundant, but
man, with his destructive engines and
selfish motives for making monoy,
steps in and destroys this balance by
killing the greater number of tho larger
fish such as thu salmon, and leaving
tho trout untouched. Hence the
grcuter necessity for a moro thorough
protection of the larger and moro commercial descriptions of lish by length*
cued close seasons and othor methods."
