Paid the Penalty.
Toronto, Feb. 12.—Kane, the wife
murderer, was hanged at the Toronto
gaol this morning at 8:14. He died in
twelve minutes. He walked to the seuf-
fold with a Arm step and apparently Unflinching nerve. Governor Green asked
liim if had any confession to make, and
he said "No, no." In answer to the
question if he had any statement to
make, he replied "No, nothing." The
execution was very cleverly done; tho
weight was detached at the time stated,
and Kane's body was sprung into space.
He apparently suffered death with almost tlie least possible pain attending such a mode of execution.
The crime for which Kane rendered up
his life was a most revolting and brutal
one. Sometime either on Saturday
night, Nov. 16th, or the morning of Sunday, the 17th, Kane, ina drunken state,
attacked the woman with whom he
lived, and who was the wife of his deceased brother. On the Sunday evening
the woman was found lying dead,
stretched upon the floor of the miserable
hovel on Defoe street in which the
couple lived. Her body was covered
with bruises, and on her head were terrible wounds, evidently inflicted with a
ftatiron, which was found near by.
With appalling coolness, the murderer
had taken ashes from the stove, spread
them over the blood that had clotted ou
the floor, aud swept the floor with a
broom. He told his neighbors his wife
waB dead and then fled, but was captured the same evening in St. John's
ward and taken to prison.

OTTAWA  NEWS.
An Blotting Debate in Parliament  thla
Afternoon.
' From  Our Own Correipondent.)
Ottawa, Feb. 11.—Sir Richard Cartwright in the House to-day brought up
on a question of privilege the disclosures
made by the Toronto Globe against Mr.
Rykert, the Conservative member for
Lincoln. Mr. Rykert was accused of
using his influence as a member of Parliament for his personal advantage. Sir
John Macdonald said that any accusation against members of the Government
would hear the fullest investigation and
fixed the discussion of the subject for
Thursday.
Mr- Laurler's motion to abolish the rebate of duty on corn to distillers was defeated by yeas, 69; nays, 104.
Sir John Macdonald announced that
important tariff measures would be
brought down later on.
A disgraceful religious riot occurred at
Hull, opposite this city, to-night. Several Protestant ladies crossed the river
from Ottawa to conduct a missionary
service among the French-Canadians.
A mob of over u thousand persons broke
up the meeting. Sticks and stones were
thrown and several volleys fired. The
women and their escorts were compelled
to flee. They were roughly handled and
four of them received dangerous wounds.
The police were powerless to prevent the
disturbance. Two attests were made.
Great indignation is express^*! here.
Many hot tempered young men wanted
to cross tho river when the next meeting
is held and clear out the town.
Kane, the Toronto wife murderer, who
has been refused a respite, will be executed to-morrow.
The announcement that the American
government proposes to polico Behring
Sea this year has created surprise here.
Tho correspondence to be brought down
shortly will show that the Canadian
government made peremptory demands
of the British government for the interference of the latter. Itis believed here
in official circles that British warships
will assuredly visit Behring Sea this
season;
Senator Bolton will introduce a resolution in the Senate in favor of Canadian
representation in the Imperial Parliament and Privy Couucil.
Ottawa, Out., Feb. 12.—At the opening of the house to-day Mr. Charlton referred to the rioting last evening in
Hull, aud attacked the government for
not having taken action to prevent  it.
Sir John arose and for fully twenty
minutes defended the government, und
aaid thut the provincial government of
Quebec only had authority to interfere.
He became quite excited, and depicted
the motive of the honorable gentleman
in bringing the subject before the liouse.
Mr. Charlton replied amidst cries of
"order, order, chairs."
Hon. Mr. Mitchell moved the adjournment of the debate, when a terrific uproar and confusion took place.
Hon. Mr. Blake next spoke, and was
followed by Mr. Wallace and others,
such expressions as "fire brands," "infamous conduct," "bigot," etc., were
quite frequent. After considerable excitement the debate was dropped nt
3:55 p. in.
Hon. Senator Mason  was sworn
yesterday.
Deputy Speaker Wood will be ban-
quetted at Brockville on Monday even

ALMOST A TRAGEDY.
The silence which usually reigns in
the vicinity of Courtenay street was
rudely broken the other evening by the
sharp reports of three separate shots.
Tlie sound of the fusilade cume from the
interior of a small cottage on the south
side of the street which was formerly
occupied by the late superintendent of
provincial police. Enquiry into the
cause of this salute a la Americaine disclosed the fact that the shots were fired
by a madly jealous husband at an erring spouse. It seems thnt the latter
huu some time ago left her husbaud ut
'Frisco, and coming to this city drifted
into a life not compatible with respectability, although her nom de guerre was
aristocratic to say the least. A few duys
ago the husband arrived in Victorlu, ami
finding out his better-half's habitation,
he hied him thither, uud with dire
threats of murder, upbraided ids recreant wife. She retorted, and a wordy
war followed, but the irate husband left
without putting his threats into execution. A friend of tho lady's being told
the circumstances, informed the police
of the threats of the Iiusband, and a police officer wus detailed to see that murder was not committed, but the vigi
luuce of the oflicer of the law was relax!
ed, and tho husband sought another in
terview with the woman he once culled
wife. Then there was a scene. Tho
husband wns primed with whiskey, and
nfter vainly imploring his wife to come
back to him, he drew n revolver and
rapidly fired three shots ut her. Luckily
hiB aim was had, nnd the bullets flew
wide of their murk. The woman fled
und the noiso of thu shots appeared to
have somewhat sobered the husband,
who skipped out, aud before nn alarm,
was given or efforts made to capturo
him, he had left by the boat from
'Frisco bound for Seattle. The badly
scared woman feels grateful that her life
was not taken, and has less inclination
than ever to return to her former home
in the Bay Oity.—Times.

IMI'KKIAI. t'KDKRATlON.
The Cunndhin hnporiid Federation
League met iu the Tower room of the
Parliament building yesterday. About
fifty gentlemen were present. Mr.
Hamilton Merritt moved, seconded by
Mr. Thomas Macfarlane: That the Imperial Federation Leaguo of Canada approves and recommends to tho careful
consideration of the league in England
und to nil interested in this subject iu
other parts of the Empire, tho proposl-
tion brought before the Colonial Conference of 1887 by Mr. Hoffmeyr, of Cape
Colony, to 'promote n closer union between the various parts of the British
Empire, by means ot uu imperial tariff
of customs, to be levied inde|iendently
of the duties payable under existing
tariffs on goods entering the Empire
fiom abroad, tho revenue derived from
such tariff to be devoted lit the general
dotonce of tho Empire,' aud that a subcommittee be uppointed to raise a fund
for spreading information on thu principle of HoH'meyr's schemo"
To this Mr. Cuslmir Dicksou offered
the following amendment:
"That the league in Canada deem it
inadvisable to adopt n detailed policy
with regard to inter-Imperial trade relations at the present time, aud Is further of opinion thut any such acheme
should emauute from such |>eriodlcal
conferences of representatives of tho
self-governing communities of thu Empire, as the league has resolved should
he its first aim to establish, and not
from the league."
Mr. It. K. Dobell assured the meeting
that this luter-lm|ierlal trade question
was being discuasod in England, uud thu
Cunndinn league Bhould take u stand
thereon.
Messrs. Hamilton Merritt aud Mac
farlane, spoke in favor of tlio adoption
of u reciprocal trade policy. Mr. Macfarlane suid that only the absence of
such u provision for the collodion of an
imperial fund prevented the establishment of imperial peuuy-poat und colonial cable systems.
Col. <i. T. Dennison iu support Baid
that the fiscal policy of Englund was by
trade und emigration building up the
United States virtually at the expense
of Canada, and Umt .while wu were willing to contribute towards imperial defence, we must look to a reciprocal trade
policy to recoup us for our outlay.
The aeeretury read the following cable
from bnglutid : "The Nutional Fair
Trade League congratulates the Imperial Federation League of Canada on its
annual meeting, and silbmits that preferential inter-British trade relations afford the only possible basis for real, federation."
. The election of oflicers was proceeded
with. Mr. McCurthy's re-election to
the presidency of the lengue was unanimously carried amidst applause. The
election of vice-presidents resulted, as
follows : Vice-president for Ontario,

THE QUEEN'S SPEECH.
The "speeah from the throne" de
livered at the opening of the Imperial
Parliament yesterday contains some
points worth noting. As might be expected, a passing reference Is made to
the Portuguese embroglio, which has so
recently been settled by the prudent
backing dowu of the blustering Porta
guese, and the Queen is made authority
for the reassuring statement tliat the
relations between Her Mnjests's Gov*
. eminent and the other powers are now
of the most friendly nature. Among
other treaties to be submitted to Parliament is the long-delayed extradition
treaty with the United Btates. In
paragraph elsewhere in these columns
will be found a brief outline of the
points to be embraced in the new treaty,
whose provisions will, of course extend
to Canada in its relations to the United
States, where, indeed, by reason of the
proximity of the two countries, the extradition measure will have its chief exercise. The reference in the speech declaring the lively interest Her Majesty
takes in the result of the Australian
Federation Conference, now convening,
is significant aa marking the comparatively new and increasing interest which
the Mother Country is manifesting in
colonial affairs generally and more espe-
' dally with an evident view and desire
towards a grand federation of the British Empire.  Not less significant are the
somewhat vague proposals to better the
condition of Ireland, by "increasing the
"number of occupying owners of land,
and by "extending to Ireland the principle of local self government whicli
"has already been adopted in England
"and Scotland, as far aB they are applicable  to   Ireland."    Not   even   a
Conservative    Government   of    England     can   longer    wholly     ignore
Ireland's    claims   to   important  concessions   and   constitutional   changes,
and hope to "hold its job;" but it is altogether unlikely that the Irish party
in the Imperial House will be put off
with  any half measures such as the
. hinted at extension in the speech of the
English county council system to Ireland.   It Is just as unlikely that from a
Tory Government, and from such men
as Salisbury and  Balfour,  will Ireland
gut its dues in the mutter of liberal land
laws and au adequate and just measure
of Home Rule.    Indications are not
wanting that to   Gladstone and the
Liberals will reasonably soon fall the
congenial task of bestowing both.   The
speech statea,.an,ij|_B_i^|___*______uyj]HJthat
a commission will be appointed tore
port on the best means for Improving
the condition of the people  iu some of
the western highland districts and islands
of Scotland.   A very practical  way to
"improve the condition" of some of those
[M-ople would be to remove, them to a
Uew uud  more  friendly environment,
where the fruits of their labors, instead
of amounting tu a bare und miserable
pittance, would in a short time render
thein independent of further state aid,
and contented and happy witli their more
hopeful circumstances.   British Columbia offers a splendid Held for just such a
class of hardy immigrants, und it is to
be hoped, in the interests of the Crofters and others, bb well aa ut this Province, that the Imperial Government
commission referred to iu  the speech
above will consider fuvorubly the plan
of assisting some at ieast of the struggling people of the western highland districts and islands of Scotland to immigrate to this land of comparative plenty,
where their labors will meet with something like an adequate rewurd und provo
a source of wealth to thu Province as
well.'       t__m___t________t____m_mm,______,
IRISH-AMERICAN AFFAIRS.
A tbkmendoiih row is brewing in tho
Irish National League of America, thinks
an exchange. The trouble haB been
caused by the failure of the president,
Mr. Fitzgerald, to call the annual convention, the alleged auditing of the
treasurer's accounts, and the charge
that the funds were appropriated for
the defence of the Cronin murderers.
Some idea of the magnitude of the funds
voluntarily contributed by (he Irisli in
America to the cause of Home Itulc may
be gathered from the statement that the
balance on hand at the Chicago convention in 1880 was $21,885.78; receipts to
January 1st, 1890, $257,922.79; remitted
to Ireland to January 1st, 1890, $287,-
248.08; current expenses, 1*22,225-27;
balance on hand January 1st, 1890, ♦20,-
335.22. Whilst there is a lend, demand
for a convention and a very openly expressed suspicion that the funds have
been misappropriated to purposes other
than those for which they were intended, there appears no desire to cast
doubt on the honesty of the president.
The Chicago Herald, which has no
leaning towards* either faction, gives
Mr. Fitzgerald credit for a desire to give
entire satisfaction to the public and do
the best he can for the Irisli cause. A
wealthy banker, a clear-headed, strong-
minded man of business, it Ib said that
no fault could be found with his management were the league a business
concern. But he, like other business
men, is unfamiliar* with political
methods, aud his enormous business
absorbs ull hia attention, leaving him
little time for other affairs. He is said
to be most anxious to get rid of his
league responsibility, but is apparently
persuaded that the postponement of tho
convention is the putting oft' of a row that
would wreck the Irish cause in America,
But however this may be, there is profound and widespread dissatisfaction
with the manner in which the affairs of
the league have been conducted. The
late auditing of accounts hus been denounced in several Irish-American
papers as a farce,' but nothing is likely
tobedoheat present, as Mr. Parnell
THB DAILY COLUMBIAN, NEW WESTMINSTER, B. ©., FEBRUARY 12, 1800.
VOLUME VIII-No. 10.
has requested postponement of the convention pending the general elections
in Great Britain.
THE MORMONS IN CANADA.
The Winnipeg Free Press, referring to
the fact that Senator Macdonald, of
British Columbia, has introduced a bill
in the Dominion House to prohibit polygamous practices in Canada, observes
that it is not only a move in the right
direction, but it ia one imperatively
needed in the in terestsof public morality.
A Mormon colony has been established in
the Northwest. The members of it profess an obedience to the. laws aud a
respect for the prejudices of a couutry
which not unreasonably lays claim to n
Christian cliuracter; but there are not
wanting signs that it in their intention
to defy both, uud it iB believed that the
objectionable practices so peculiar to
thut sect are already rife among them.
The people of Canada should not and
will not tolerate this abomination. Individual Mormons, regarded as citizens
only, cannot Ik molested; but they
muat not be Buffered to practice poly-
gumy. By moving in time, and by
adopting stringent measures, the plague
mny bo arrested at itB very inception.
To atop polygamous marriages may drive
these people out of the country. Better
want them than suffer them to
plant the seeds of their infamous tenets
in Canadian soil. Much aa the Northwest desires set tiers, it will be better u
thousand times that they are not obtained at the price of this blot on the
public morals. It is, therefore, to be
hoped thut Senator Macdonuld's measure, or aome other one equally or even
more efficacious, ahall lie made law at
the preaent session of Parliament and
the means thus provided to meet the
evil which threatens the country.
Out of a political question raised in
tho territory of Idaho the Supreme
Court of the United States haB been
given an opportunity to pronounce on
polygamy itself. Following is the opinion
of this highest judicial tribunal in that
country, u tribunal from whose judgment there is no appeal:
Bigamy and polygamy nre crimes by
the laws of the united States und of
Idaho. They tend to destroy the purity
of the marriage relations, to disturb the
peace of families, to degrade women und
to debase men. Few crimes nre more
pernicious tothe best interests of society
and receive more general or more deserved punishment. To call their advo-
cuey a tenet of religion is to offend the
common .sense of mankind. To extend
exemption from punishment for auch
crimes would be to shock tho moral
judgment of the community. It is assumed by counsel of the petitioner that
because uo mode of worship can be established by law or religious tenets enforced in this country, therefore any
form of worship muy be followed uud
any tenets, however destructive of society, may be held and advocated, if
asserted to be u part of the religious
doctrines of thoao advocating und practising them. But nothing is further
from the truth. Whilo legislation for
the establishment of a religion is forbidden, and its free exercise permitted, it
does uot follow that everything which
maybe so culled can be tolerated. Crime
is not the less odious because sanctioned
by whut uny particular sect may designate ns religion.
The Free Press adds the following comment: What is a crime in the United
States is no less a crime iu Canada. The
tendency of polygamous practices, as
they have been in Idaho, will be in tlie
Northwest, "to destroy the purity of the
"marriage relations, to disturb the peace
"of families, lo degrude women and to
"debase men." To prevent theae ia one
of the highest functions of a country's
legislature. These are the evils with
which wl are threatened by the Mormon
settlement in the Northwest, and itis
the duty of Parliament to avert them.
If the laws as they are cannot be depended upon to do this, then a law
specially framed aud ample in its provisions should af once be provided.
A very simple and effective plan can
be adopted for closing up the unsightly
vacant lots on our leading thoroughfares.
It has been found to work well in other
cities and iB worth a trial in Montreal.
It is merely to assess these properties at
the full value for which they are held
by the owners, and make thein pay precisely the same for drainage and other
local improvements ns lots built upon
have to pay. These vacant lots are held
for purposes of speculation in nearly nil
cases by persons who are quite able to
build, but prefer to lot them lie idle in
order to make money through the increased value created by others who improve the neighborhood. They ure,
therefore, hindrances to the progress of
the city and deserve no consideration.
To tax the enterprising people who improvo their property and let off those
who let it stand idle ia contrary to com*
mon sense und a manifest injustice. If
this plan were adopted it would be wonderful how soon theae vacant places
would be built up and the city vastly
improved uud beautified.—Montreal Star.
The same plan might be worked to advantage in Westminster.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Btory of Mra. Parnell's poverty la
either a fraud or the woman is demented.
Parnell iB we.l known to lie a high-
minded, honorable man, about the lust
iu the world to permit the mother who
bore him to suffer for want. He is not
rich, but he can spare enough to keep
his mother from starving; and if she
really needs his help and hus acquainted
him of her necessities, he is not the niuu
to refuse her. These frequent revivals
of the old story have something extremely fishy about them. If it weru
true, she would have died of hunger long
ago, for it is two years since tho starving
first began.—Ex.
At last thero is a prospect of a new
extradition treaty with the United
States going into effect, observes the
Monetary Times. To the crimes for
which extradition now takes place are
added manslaughter, counterfeiting, embezzlement, fraud by a bailee, banker,
or agent, perjury or subornation of perjury, rape, abduction, child-stealing,
kidnapping, burglary, house or shop
break ing, pi racy, revolt or conspiracy to
revolt on shipboard at sea. Alt articles
found in possession of absconding criminals are to be surrendered. Where demands are mnde by several States for
the same person, surrender is to follow
priority. No surrender is to be made
for crimes of a political character. A
provision of this kind was inevitable.
The danger iB that vulgar murder may
seek shelter under a political pretence.
Does the murder of a public man, in a
secret manner, in times of profound
peace, give the act a political complex
ion? Could such frightful murders us
those of Phienix Park find shelter
under a political pretence? Could dynamiters who chose to set up u political
pretext claim freedom from surrender
undor this provision? It is to be feured
ull these questions must be answered in
the affirmative. The question whether
the offence is political is to be decided
by the country to which the fugitive has
fled. It is a wise precaution thut a fugitive surrendered for ono crime cannot
bo tried for another. The new treaty,
which stands a good chance of ratification, is of course not retroactive in its
operation.
Height of an Orang-outang,
A writer in tke Nortb Borneo Herald
says the North Borneo orang-outang
would seem to be a good doal bigger
than the Sarawak ono, of which Wallaoe
auya that of a good many ahot by him
tho largest stood 4 feet 3 Inches only;
Hornaday's largest was 4 feet 4 Inches.
In North Borneo thesmallest full-grown
malo I have measured was 4 feet 4
Inches; 4 foet 0 inches seems to be a
common sizo. A Mr. Adams ahotoneon
tho Suunlimiha snld to bo 4 foet 8 inches,
anil the ouo Mr. Dunlop shot near the
club stood as muoh as 4 feet 10 Inches,
tbo largest on record. Mr. Allard shot
ono on tho Ktnabatangan lately which
measured from tip to tip of its fingers 80
Inches across its outspread arms.
Mew Idas for Shoe Sole*,
A Nuremburg firm Is bringing out a
now kind of sole for boots and shoes, for
whioh it claims great solidity and convenience. The sole consists of a sort of
trellis work of spiral metal wiro, tho
i interstices being filled with gu tta-porcha
and ammonia resin, wbloh give them
both strength and suppleness. They are
f fitted with special nails on to ordinary
soles and oan be produced fifty por cent,
below tho ordinary prices ot leathor ones.
Thoy havo already been used In the
army and lt is stated that the results of
tho tost are very satlsf actory. The soles
wore found In good.condition after long
and severe usage.
The Italians havo a method of preserving fruit ln sand, alternate layers
in fruit and sand being put down. Oranges aro frequently kopt for monthB
by this process. Tbo fruit is cut, not
torn, from the treo. A similar method
has been adoptod by a grower of oranges
in South Africa, and the fruit oomos out
of tho "silo" in fino condition at a timo
when oranges aro scarce and yield good
prioes. Sweet potatoes may be preserved
in the same manner.
Itis not astonishing that Spaniards
and Portuguese Bhould become demonstrative in their dislike of England, remarks an exchange. Though the two
nations hate each othor cordially they
unite iu detestation of the British. Even
when British armies were defending
Spain against France they did. not conceal their dislike. A cuHoub instance
of Spanish feeling is to be seen in the
permits granted by the Governor of San
Rocque to Spanish soldiers visiting the
Rock of Gibraltar. These documents
recite that the bearer may cross tho
lines to "His most Catholic Majesty's
fortress of Gibraltar, now In temporary
possession of the English." One of the
most popular Spanish songs a few years
ago contained the threat that "with the
beards of the Moors and the bones of
the English a road would be made for
the Queen of Spain to walk on." This
sounds quite foolish, but it shows the
national temper very plainly.
Three years ago Edith M. Cook, a
beautiful English girl and an orphan,
was left to shift for herself in New York,
while the relatives who brought her
ovor the ocean went west. She succeded
after a while in gutting u situation as
waitress in n restaurant at $3 a week.
Half of this weut for rent and the rest
for car fares. For two years Bhe strug-
gled to get u situation by which she
could live an honest and respectable life.
But she gradually fell behind. She
suffered the pangs of hunger, and as a
last resort was obliged to dispose of all
her scanty wardrobe thut was pawnable,
Last week pneumonia came and relieved
her from further struggle and privation.
It is, perhaps, not worth whilo to sermonize upou this Incident. It occurred
in a city which spent $8,000,000 last
year for champagne; where one family,
at least, dines off a solid gold service;
where $200,000 necklaces aro frequently
paraded, and where diamonds are as
plenty as anowfiakes nt "great social
events." What kind of " events "
shall wo call such as tho incident hero
related?—Boston Globe,

FILLED WATCH CASES.
Five Hundred Thousand of Them
Made Every Year.
How James  Boss  Patented tbe  Article
That I* One of the Greatest Factor*
ln the Jewelry Trade — Where
Host ot the Cue* Are Made.
There is an industry of vast Importance oarried on in this city, says the
Philadelphia Press, that comparatively
(ew Philadelpblans are aware of, and
probably three-fourths of tho million
residents of the oltyare totally ignorant
oi its existence. Nevertheless, it is one
of lhe powerful factors in Philadelphia's
collection of industries, and carries the
fame of the Quaker City into foreign
countries that many other home productions fail to roach.
The manufacture of gold-filled watch
cases ls the industry in question, and
one thousaud skilled artisans are daily
employed in their production. As tho
fli lod watch caso is of Philadelphia
birth, and the unrivaled product of
Quaker City watch factories, ft should
be a source of special pride to those who
dote on home-manufactured artioles,
The filled oase has an entertaining
history. A dingy old building at Dock
and Walnut streets was Its birthplace.
Thirty-two years ago a watch-case maker
was puzzled about tbe tendency of the
low carat gold in his oheap oases to
tarnish. For their selling price he
could not furnish a better quality; but
the persistence with which the eases
would tarnish waa a source of much
thought to him. The case-maker's
name was Reese Peters, and bis employe was the workman to whom credit
ls due for the groat industry whioh
finds its leading exponents ln Philadelphia. James Boss was tbe workman,
and he was continually experimenting
with adds and metals. In his anxiety
to procure a better watch case ReeBe
Peters unconsciously furnished the idea
which resulted In the patenting ot the
filled case,
One day In sheer desperation Peters
told Boss if he could get a good quality
gold-wearing surface, with a base center and a low-carat inside, there was a
fortune In the idea. A month later
Boss had finished the model of a machine that ls the ground-work for all
filled case manufacturing. Two plates
of gold were laid on either side of a central piece of metal, which after being
rolled out to the desired consistency hy
tiuavy mills were placed under the ina-
•:hlne and struck of! by a die. It was
only by tbe finest calculation and level-
tn/r process that the surfaces would
cling to eaoh other without tbe aid of
solder.
Boss surmounted the difficulty and
made the three surfaces so smooth that
they became adhesive, and tho suction
established would allow one plate to
bear the'other's woightwithoutartifiolal
aid. Boss was ln high spirits over his
success and soon forwarded the model of
his machine to Washington. The patent
was granted, and the flrst cases made
were known as tho James Boss filled
watch cases. Peters took his workman
Into partnership, ana for several years
they had a complote monopoly of the
business.
The flrst appearanco created a big
sensation In tho jowelry business, for
tho idea of making a gold caso outof
any thing but gold had nover been entertained. The patent was regarded to
bo the most important over linown to
the trade and Boss cases wero oagerly
purohased. So confident wero the patentees of tho superiority of their new
ense that they furnished a written guarantee with every case, stipulating that
unless tho case wore for twenty years
they would refund tho money of tho
purchaser. This shrewd polley mado
the filled case more famous than evor,
and they could not bo made rapidly
enough to supply orders. Boss sold out
hia patent a few yoars later to John
.Stuck hart, a case-maker, who continued
their manufacture until he died from a
disoaso contracted while using the acids
needed to prepare tbo plates, His patent wus disposed of to llagstoz & Thorpe,
who bogan thoir work in the Ledger
building, and wero fortunate onough to
arouse the interest of George \V I'iiilils.
With the money thus obtained tho Industry waB boomed, und Bonn assumed
colossal proportions. A property was
purchased at Nineteenth and Brown
streets, and a plant erected upon the
site now occupied by the Keystone
Watch Case Company.
When the patents expired they were
eagerly appropriated by watch-case companies, and the filled caso was manufactured In far larger quantities than
gold oases evor were,
Philadelphia bus retained the lead
she secured, and is in tho van of all
filled-cuso manufacturing cities. Nearly miimwu gold-tilled cases is the yearly
capacity of our factories. Thoy can not
be distinguished from a solid gold case.
The wearing surface is of fine-quality
gold ai)d M*<> composition lies between
this and another plain of gold that oom*
posuf) tlio Insido of the caso.
The filled aaso of to-day is vastly different tn appearance from the pionoers
of Boas' time. They are graceful and
handsome, and the engraver can display
his art upon them as successfully as he
can beautify the solid gold oase. Then
tboy wore made by band, but now tbo
most valuable) machinery produces them
with great rapidity.
Philadelphia gold-filled cases are
known all ovor tbe ulvlltssed world. Tho
exportation of (tiled cases is very largo.
Europe has taken more kindly to the
American case than lt would bo supposed, but their superior finish and
wonderful durability have mudo them
a universal nocosslty wherever watches
aro wopn. ■ ■   ■- ■• v't

ANTIQUITY OF JEWELRY.
The   Styles   Moat   Popular In   Ancient
Egypt, Greece and Borne.
The practice of carving precious stones
is of remote antiquity, writes Martha J.
Lamb in the Jewelers' Weekly. Through
their hardness they were susceptible to
the highest polish, and thus retained
unimpaired the lines and figures cut
upon tbem. Thore are no objects known
which In so smull a sphere called for
sueh elegance of taste and perfeot skill
in ornamentation or inscription. Tho
earliest gems appeared among the
Egyptians chiefly as bootle-Bhapod signets worn in rings, and many of thom
were exquisitely engraved. .The form
was oval and pierced from end to end
with a holo through which there passed a
strong wiro which kept tho stone In place
in a ring. When worn the flat or seal sido
rested against the finger, but when used
as a seal it was turned. Tho Israelites
learned tbo art of the Egyptians and
the Greeks adopted lt and speedily excelled all their predecessors.
Herodotus mentions tbe famous emerald of Polynates, and the fame of Us engraver, Theodorus of Samoa. This was
about 600 B. C. Contemporary with the
Greeks tho Etruscans achieved great excellence in gem engraving. The art
finally attained Its highest perfection
ln Sicily and Magna Griecla.
Gold was muoh used in Egypt as a setting for precious stones, and upon it
wero engraved favorito animals, divinities, flowers, coats of arms and hieroglyphics. Thero are many curious specimens of early Egyptian art to be seen in
New York City—in the museum of the
Historical Society—among which Is a
diadem in gold ornamented wilh the
lotus llower; a silver ring artistically
engraved with tbe name Amunoph ill.,
MSO B. C.j a gold bird with outstretched
wings inlaid with turquolso und lapis
luzuli; ear-rings chiefly in gold and variously omumomod—ono pair terminating In a tiger's bead holding in his
mouth an engraved stone, another in
Mie farm of a cow's bead wllh a carbuncle set in tho forehead, and several
pairs terminating with beads of lions,
bulls and iho "deargazello." Therearo
also in this fine collection of antique
jewelry the gold necklace and our-rlngs
bearing the name of Mones, tbe first
I'liuraoli of Egypt and tho earliest King
In history—supposed to have been made
1)771 B. C.
The Greeks were extremely ingenious
in devices. They practiced engraving
chiefly in intaglio, and some of their
bust works aro in chalcedony und oar-
unlian. Ono culobraicd specimen of
Greek workmanship in carncliun is the
beautiful seal of an unknown artist
which once belonged to Michael Angelo
and was preserved in tho Imperial Library at Paris. The engraving represents a vintage, and many copies of it
have been made. Such sioues au bud differently colored lay orn, like onyx, wore
found hotter adapted to tbo relief style
of engraving. Several of tbo most iota-
bio artists of Greece established thom-
selves ut Rome undor the Emperors.
In tlie timo of Augustus tlie art reached
its highest excellence, and cabinets of
gems became n iimorous, 11 was n matter
of pride wuh me out Roman gentlemen
to possess cuihel and Intagll of valuo.
Tho passion for gems spread through
Prance, Germany and Englaii * and in
ull olvilized countries tho art of engraving on precious titonos hau over been
hold in high estimation. Tho countries
that hove been foremost in producing
theso stones uro IHndosian, Pegu, Ceylon und Siberia, ul though hi mortem
times Jlt-axil and Peru bavo boon notable
rivals in this class of gems. Tho lllp)-

PRETTY FINGER   NAILS.
Every lluily Can llitv.* Them Ity Caring
fur Thi-iti Ituiruliirly.
"Your nails always look so nice," I
overheard ono damsel remark to anothor
not long ago, says a correspondent "Do
you go to a manicure ovory day?"
"Oh, no, I have never been to one, for
It Is tho easiest thing in the world to
tako caro of one's own nails—Just a littlo cure every day,"
"Well, I've tried and tried, and can't
make mino look evon decont Tell me
what you do."
Hore I listened for the prescription,
which in sum and substance was as follows:
"In order to keep tbo skin baok from
the nail I use a nail-brush freely—using
it on tbo nails particularly. Then, in
dryiqg tu y hands, I work the towel from
tbo point of the nail back toward tho
finger. I cut my nails often, and don't
let them get too long. By cutting tbe
nails in Buch a way that*tho corners do
not adhere to tne skin, hang-nails can
be avoided and the shape of tho nails
changed. Whero the nails are thin and
inclined to break, frequent oiling Ib
necessary, and tho nails should never bo
polished, except whon some oily substance Is used besides tho powder. This
keeps the nails moro pliable, and no
matter bow thin they are, If properly
treated thev aro no more liable to
break than thicker ones. Another thing
that. is bad for tho nails ls polishing
tbem too roughly. They should be
lightly touched and not rubbed until
they become heated. This ia ono oause
of whito spots coming on tne nail and
marring Its beauty. A little attention
every day will make any hand look
nico,"
To this conversation wbloh I overheard let me add a word or two about
the bands. Tu make them white thoy
should be occasionally nibbed wtth
lemon juioo and water. Tho hands
should never be allowed to remain long
soiled with any thing that will stain
thom- But unless thero is some reason
for lt, tt ts bettor not to wash the hands
too often. Tboy Bhould bo dried with a
sof t towel.

REYTAG ON  FREDERICK.
The Noted Novelist's   Interesting Memories of the Late Emperor.
Gustav Preytag, the German novelist
and historian, has published what he
calls a "Contribution to the History of
the Making of the New German
Empire," In whioh he hopes to show
that what becamo a faot had long heen
a wish of the then Crown Prinoe, tho
lato Emperor Frederick. The Berlin
correspondent of tho London Dally
News says the author confesses that as
late as 1870 he himself was not In favor
of an empire, and thore were many who
thought as he did. The ground-work
of Freytag's book consists of hasty notes
jotted down during the war and of
letters which he wrote to a friend. He
craves the Indulgence of his readers for
giving an honest, unbiased description
of the late Emperor. He has been loyal
to the house of Hohenzollern all his
life, but there is no authority so exalted
as to influence his judgment.
Of the last chapter of tho book tho
correspondent says: "The author, who
after the war remained In Intimate communication with the Crown Prince, tells
us how muoh the latter was disappointed that no field of activity was open to
blm at homo, how the empire grew and
flourished more and more under the
regime of the late Emperor William,
whilo tho Crown Princo, with more or
less visionary pluns and projects, was
forced to keep In the background, looking on in inactivity. On this period of
the lato Emperor's life Herr Freytag's
words are: 'For along tlmo tbe Crown
Prince hud been fortunate enough to
have among his most intimate friends
two men in succession who, by their
education and character, were worthy
of tho highest confidence Ernest von
Sieomor from 1804 until his doath remained tho confidential adviser of the
Crown Princo and Princess.
"'At his recommendation Karl von
Normann assumed his place, and during
the twenty years in which the Crown
Prince accomplished tho great work of
his manhood be remained closely connected with blm. After Herr Normann
in IBM was transferred to tho Foreign
Office the Crown Prinoe wns alone, at a
tlmo whon a faithful adviser was moat
necessary. He deliberately indulged in
sad ihiiiis'iitsandpessimistic reflections.
"At times he thought of abdicating In
favor of his son in case of a change of
throne. Not even the persuasions of
the Crown Princess were able to banish
this sadness for any length of time. He
began to grow old tn mind and body
long before tho terrible disease struck
him, and his vital onergy was no longer
that befitting a man who was shortly to
wear tho imperial orown. Thoso who
hoped for him would soe in him what
they most desired, and those who
thought little of his capacities wero not
ublo to judgo what powers and inclinations tho office nnd rolgn might havo
developed ln a healthy man.
" 'Ho was a frank, honest man, with a
cheerful mind and a heart full of love, a
man with tbe power of rejoicing heartily
over overy thing good and groat. He
was so amiable and full of sympathy toward tho neody and suffering that not
even the numberless bitter experiences
whioh the great ones of tho earth make
with reference to tho unworthlnoss of
those who seek aid detained him from
giving aid in individual cases. To those
who wero moro closely connected witli
him ho showed tbo most tender aifoc
tion; overy sorrow they encountered lu1
also felt, as a true frlond, from tho bottom of his heart. He was tender and
excitable, a man of rare purity and deep
iioartlness.
" 'He was an ardent' Protestant, uui
formly tolerant hi all religious questions, and hisstrongestantlpiittiies were
directed against bigoted clericals. In
politics bo was opposed topolluo rulo,
and wlsbod for extended rights of self-
government aud tho greatest liberty for
all communities In all kinds of honest
activity. But these were sentiments
with which thoso wbo hud knowledge
or thn condition of tbo peoplo did not
quite ugree, aud It would bave been difficult for him to put In practice his
convictions in face of the authoritative
objections they met with, for ho was no
practical politician. Ills judgment bad
not beon tested in great uffulrs, and
when ho was enthusiastically bent on
somo great end ho hesitated in using
tho necessary means, and It would have
beon moro easy to lead him than for
bim to lead others. He was much inclined to acknowledge tho independence of others, and ovory ono could express hts convictions with the utmost
freedom, even It thoy oame ln contact
with bis ideas.'"

HOW IT  HAPPENED,
Oye of Thoae Toueliea  of  Nature Tlmt
Make the Whole World Hin,
Ton o'olock ln tho building of the big
eity paper. The eleotrio lights are burning and tho whirl of presses and click of
typos make a  busy   scene.   Editors,
reporters, proof-readers are busy preparing the day's doings for the morrow.
The door of the chief's offlce, says the
Detroit Free Press, is pushed carefully
open, and  a   blue-eyed,  flaxen-curled
maiden of six summon and as many
winters enters.   Nobody knows bow she
got thero.   Nobody saw bnr climb tbe
stairs or walk through the ball.  She ls
ragged, dirty and has been crying.
"Is you the editor-man?"
"Yes, little ono; what can I do for
you?"
"Rube la dead, an' I thought may be
you'd like to tell about It?"
"Who la Rube?"
"Why, didn't you ever hear of Rube?"
"You soe, thore are ao many people
that I can't know them all."
Tho big-boarded man'wai actually
ashamed of bis ignorance.
"But Rubo wasn't poopio—ho was my
brother. lie Bold papors an' blacked
boots and all that. Ho wasn't very rich
an' ma said tho oity man would bury
hiin—but he was good to me.
"Did you sell papers, too?"
"No, I stayed home, but Rube brought
mo candy dogs an' oandy roosters and
licked bad hoys that mado mo ory. An'
if you'd tell folks how good he was,
maybe they'd t,hink better of him."
"What do you want me to say, little
ono?"
"Why, tbat ho waa twolvo years old
an' was holpln' mother and—oh, I don't
know—but 'member he wat always good
ter me,"
Boforo the little mourner left the
office she was the rocipiont ot a handful
of coins donated by "the boys" of the
offlce and the big editor ordered tho
Janitor to accompany bor home.
Thus It happened that tho readers of
the great paper were mildly astonished
te read on the morning's local page:
Dikd—Yesterduy, Rubo, tho newsboy, aged
twolvo years. Ho was tbe support of his widowed mother and lovod his little slater hotter
than life almost. Be was burled In tho potter's
field lut night.	
—Too Amiable.—Adjutant, who has
just knocked hia cigar ashes Into the
oyes of a Princo ln front of blm—"Pardon, your Highness; I am inconsolable
Princo (rubbing big eyes)—"I beg you
will not trouble yourself. There are
occasions when lt Ib quito pleasant to
havo olgar ashes In one's eyoB,"-
Fllegende Blatter.
—Spot Cash—"I say, Hatr-dup, hear
you'ro going to be married next week.
Now, I thought you told me the other
day that you were awfully down on
yonr luckl" Hardup—"Know I did. But
I've been engaged two years and steadily gotting worse off. At this rate If I
don't marry now I never shall be able
to."—Time. _

ltulldlng operations.
Building operations are now being actively prosecuted in all parts of the city,
and it is estimated that fully 80 buildings are now under construction. In
the west end in the neighborhood of,
Edinburgh street, 45 buildings are under way, and the material has been ordered for many more. Enst of Douglas
street to Park lane some 40 buildings
are being erected, and other lot owners
are only waiting a favorable opportunity
to commence work. In Sapperton only
a small number of houses are in progress at present, but there will be much
activity in building circles before many
weeks. The contractors are all preparing for the busiest season on record,
and it is a foregone conclusion that tbey
will not be disappointed.

that they are now in fairly good condition.
It iB understood the couucil )ms decided to go on and finish the sidewalks

number of men employment, besides
which it will be a great benefit to tbe

The now Royal Columbian hospital,
just completed, was opened to-day, and
the old building on Agnes street vacated. Tlie patients were all removed to

with such pleasant quarters and good
medical treatment, there will be little
left for them to want.
The fur dealers are receiving only a
few deer aud mink skins at present, nnd
the trade in skins and furs is uuusally
dull. Tho value of firs marketed so far
this year is mnch below the average,
and tlie prospects are not bright for
larger receipts. The deep snow in the
mountains has hindered trapping and
hunting to a considerable extent, and
this probably accounts for tho scarcity
of furs,

a mutual improvement of members and
the betterment of engineers iih u class,

A Regular Bonanza.
The lumber laid down for sidewalks on
various Btreets throughout the city is
proving a regular bonanza to some of our
citizens wbo regret to see such valuable
material wasted. As the lumber stands
at present, it is a regular nuisance, obstructs traffic, and peels the shins of
ratepayers as they make their way homewards on a dark night. Probably to rid
the streets of these worse than useless
encumbrances, some of the residents of
certain streets nre removing the lumber
in small quantities to patch up broken
walks, heu coops, etc.; and it is quite
certain that when the walks come to be
luid the material will be found iu some
instances to be far short of the quantity
required. If the sidewalks are not to lie
laid, the lumber should not he allowed
to obstruct the streets, but removed to
some pluce where it will be safe until
required. ^
North Arm Notes.
A meeting of the Nortb Arm residents
was held on Saturday afternoon in
Daniel's school house to discuss the
Mainland representation question. It
was fairly well attended, and Mr. J. W.
Lawson was called to the chair. Every
one present had something to say on
the matter and great interest waB manifested by all. Mr. Lawson was unanimously elected to attend the meeting
which takes place at New Westminster
next Saturday. He was instructed to
ask the association to use their best endeavors to have the wagon road from
New Westminster to tbe Indian reservation completed this summer, While the
residents were assembled it was thought
advisable to talk over the proposed incorporation of that section into a municipality, They did so, aud came to the
conclusion that such an idea was premature, after which the meeting adjourned.

A Murderous  Weapon.
A few nights ago an unknown man
was found lying by the side of a building in the swamp, and as his presence
was not relished by the neighborhood
he waa ordered to get up and "clear
out." The mau waB partially intoxicated and seemed disinclined to move,
but on being threatened with arrest
finally got up and walked off. After
proceeding a few yards he stopped and
looked back, aB if he bad forgotten
something, and seemed inclined to return, but on being again ordered on,
turned about and disappeared in the
direction of Edinburgh street. At the
spot where the man had beeu lying was
found a murderous weapon in the shape
of an iron ball, ubout six pounds m
weight with some eighteen inches of
stout rope attached to it. It is certain
the owner of this instrument carried it
for no good purpose, and one blow from
it, swung by n strong man's arm, would
be sufficient to fell nn ox. The weapon
was taken to the Merchant's hotel, anil
afterwards bunded to Chief Pearce witli
a full description of the man. The police are now on the lookout for tlie fellow, and if he is caught it will go bard
with him.

A BAD HAN.
Uut Not So Bad as He Would Like l'eoplo
tu Believe.
If some men were taken nt their word
they would instantly bo set down as desperate villains, regular lady killers or
some other monstrosity the world stands
in dread of. But, uh a rulu, desperate
villains keep their inmost thoughts to
themselves, und endeavor to conceal
their true nature from publicity. In
this city there lives a certain individual
who is strongly addicted to drink, and,
in consequence, frequently figures at the
police court. Drink is his only fault,
und he is one of the best nutured ana
most harmless men in the world. But
this man is fond of talking, and if all he
has acknowledged to could be proved
true, he would nave been lynchea years
ago. When intoxicated lie imagines
himself an awful villain, capable of the
most desperate crimes, and still he bas
never been known to commit even the
smallest breach of the law, except always, in the matter of getting drunk.
His sprees are mingled with dire and
blood curdling threats, but after all they
only end in being a mild uusiance.
A few days ago this terrible fellow was
on a spree, and in the course of his peri-
grinations met with a peace-loving citizen wbo was not acquainted with the
villain's idiosyncrasies, and took every
word he uttered forgospel truth. Without requiring any cause tbe self styled
desperado informed the citizen, thnt he
intended to poison him and his whole
family by filling his (tbe citizen's) well
with laudanum. He had plenty of the
poison and would see that the work was
thoroughly doue. Without a moment's
hesitation the citizen flew to Chief of
Police Pearee and wanted to lay an information, and have the villain arrested
before he could accomplish hiB murderous threats. Tbe chief, however, knowing tho man, assured the citizen that he
might continuo to drink from the well
without fear, and by other reasoning
convinced the frightened man that his
peril was not so great as the desperado
wanted him to believe. The citizen departed only hnlf satisfied, but he visited
the Chief again yesterday morning with
a smiling countenance. During the interval he bad beard this bad man
threaten to scalp the whole city council,
aud massacre every inhabitant of the
city residing weat of Douglas street.
These engagements, the citizen thought,
would distract the villain's attention
from the well, and he advised the chief
not to proceed against the man until the
first war whoop in the massacre bad
been sounded.

VICTORIA^NEWS.
Notes oT the Woek by Our Own Correspondent at the Capital.
Victoma. Feb. 10.—The past week has
been a quiet oue in this city. In social
circles it wns particularly dull. Mr.
Speaker Higgins gave a dinner party on
Friday evening to the cabinet and several of the members of the House. A
very pleasant time was enjoyed. The
work of the Legislative Assembly was
light and brief; there seems to be a
difficulty in gellingieriously to business;
probably before the middle of tiio present mouth they Wilt be at it iu earnest,
for there is much to bc done and many
importment measures await settlement
or adjustment.
HK'HTEOUB WRATH.
1 have something for your Scotch read
urs which may serve to show them that
the ancient Presbyterian, I might go so
far as to say tho stern, unrelenting Gov
cniinting spirit, is not dead yet in the
bosoms of Caledonian's sons. One of
these gentlemen resides in this city and
bas a nice, comfortable room in u respectful quitrtcrofthe town. This young
man is a good young man, saves his
"bawbees in a way to excite the admiration and envy of a Jew, shaves himself, turns his collars, wears a suit of
clothes two years, blacks his own boots,
iB rigidly clean, neither smokes, drinks,
chews, plays cards, goes to the theatre
or flirts with the ladies, reads a chapter
of the bible every night before retiring
and rises every morning with' the first
streak of dawn; goes twice to church on
Sunday nnd prayer meetings during the
week. He attends strictly to business
aud never made a joke in his life—he
sometimes laughs, however, not often
though. Well, on Sunday evening lately as he was sitting in his room reading
Bishop Burton's "'Anatomy of ftlelan-
choly," thore came a discreet knock at
the door. "Come in" he cried nnd the
landlady's little daughter appeared aud
said wltlioutfltopB or punctuation "Please
sir ma wants to know If you're goin' out
to-night n if you nre she 11 hang the key
on the hook beside the door for we're
goin' out too and if you like you can
spend the evening at the piano in our
pailur." The grave Scotchman's lower
jaw fell down on Iub collar with u crash,
aud rising to his feet he said In solemn
tones, "Ma wee lassie, present my compliments tae yer maw, an' tell her a'in
much obleeged tae her about the key,
bit us tae tho peeawua—div yo think a' in
daft? Ma conscience: If ma mithcr
had catchitme wbustUu'on Sawbathday

peenwna, uor oiiy ither ungoodly instrument. Just you tell her tbat frae me,
ma lassie; A'm gawn tae the kirk the

of Peden and Cameron went to kirk in a
state of righteous indignation.
CAUGHT A TARTKIt.
There is a young gentleman in this
city who accounts himself no "small
beer" in tho matter of pedestrian exercises, especially fast walking. For an
amateur he is really not amiss and can
make some interesting time. He is particularly pleased witli himself on that
account and never alights an opportunity to let average walkers see bow slowly
they really do walk. But he does thiB
witli his hands in his pockets nnd without, tu use an American "society" word,
"humping" himself iu the least. He
has a small army corps of admirers
among the newsboys, sboeblacks and
school boys, A vory respectable contingent of the fair also gane approvingly on
his rapid legs; with all these he is \;ery
popular. Tno otber evening ho was
coming home from it parly, iiloiic, and
bu was fueling in excellent spirits, lt
wns u clear moonlight night aud the
side walks were firm and dry. As lie
turned on to u streei where there wub a
long level stretch of plank walk, about
three quarters of a mile or uo, u mun
came round the corner uf the block
ahead of him and turned to walk iu the
same direction at a brisk rate. Tlie
young fellow's eyes glistened with pleasure, lie nulled up his collar a little,
jammed nis lint on tighter, loosened the
upper button of his light overcoat and
said to himself, "just see me sail past
this fellow like the flying dutehman, he
looks like a tough customer, all tho better, I'll show Kim how many nails are
in my heela pretty quick, you bet."
Then he lengthened his stride and
struck a good mile-in-10-minutes gait;
he drew up quickly on tlio stranger and
at last the latter glanced carelessly over
his shoulder but did not appear to take
any notice. The young fellow kept his
hands in his pockets and threw his legs
well out from the hips, heels and toe, a
good pace. One, two, three, four blocks
passed and still the unconcerned stranger the same distance ahead. "Ha,"
muttered tho young mun, "I thought
you were a guod one, but just allow me
to end this ut once with you," with that
he put on neight minute gait, very nearly his best, and took liis hands out of
his pockets, unbuttonod all the upper
buttons of hia coat and got into regular
truck style. Five, six, seven blocks, uo
change; the sweat poured off the young
man's face, his wind was beginning tu
give notice that this could not last much
longer, his own street was coming nearer and nearer, the stranger ahead hud
never swung his hands more than at the
first and seemed tolerably comfortable
under it all. "He shan't beat me,"
gasped the young man, ''I've licked
everybody so far, nnd tliat stunted curmudgeon is'nt going to bent this chicken ; here goes for my best, 7:30, and if I
don't get to our corner first, let me go
home and die." With u trememluous
spurt the young fellow actually decreased the distance between himself and
bis antagonist by fully half a block, but
it waB no use, the stranger just glanced
over his shoulder again its if to see if
there was a fly on it, and, to the horror
of tbe young fellow, started whistling,
"Good-bye Sarah June" at the same
time bringing up his arms regulation
style, and putting ou a terrific burst of
speed rattled off down the mounlit side
walk like a demon with stilts on. The
beaten amateur leant against the fence
panting and listening to thu rut, tat, tat,
of his adversary's heels grow fainter and
die away finally in thu shadowy distance, With tears in liis eyes he went,
home to bed, and next morning let two
telegraph messenger boys and a nurse
girl with a baby'carringe pass hiin going
down town.
bt. Andrew's church.
Sundny evening saw the writer snugly
ensconced in a pew of this fine edifice,
tbu most imposing example of ecclesiastical architecture m the city. The internal fittings and embellishments are
worthy of the splendid appearance of
the exterior. The floor Blauts gently
towards the pulpit, so that everybody
can see comfortably. The choir, which
is a large one and well traincd.is disposed
on both sides of the organist, who led
tbe singers, heating time with one bund
and playing the instrument with the
other and his feet. The organ is suitable to the size of thu church and iB
very sweet-toned. Electric light is
used for illuminating purpoBesand floods
the church with ft strong, cloar, steady
light, very agreeable to the sight. Thu
congregation is targe and on Sunday
evening the church was completely
filled to listen to the powerful sermon
delivered by the pastor, Rev. . P. McF.
Macleod. ■'
Looking Horloiis.
Instead of becoming better on Sunday,
as was expected, the Japanese sailor
who was struck with a belaying pin by
the mate of the sealer Penelope, became
worse. At one time it wus announced
tlmt is condition was very critical, and
thnt Iub chances of recovery were rapidly slipping away. YeBterday afternoon
