Minneapolis, Minn., Mar. 8.—Axel
Paulsen and Hugh McCormick, the Canadian, skated a ten mile race to-day at
White Bear Lake for $400 a side, and the
World's championship medal owned by
Paulsen. The track was two laps to a
mile. McCormick caught Paulsen very
early in the race and dogged him until
the last lap when he spurted and won
the. race by about one third of a mile.
Time 37:09. About 3000 people were

[cCormick was thought to have a sure

The Fiiheriei Arrangement. I
Washington, Meh, 3.—Despite statements to the contrary, there is considerable agitation in American-British dip
lomatic circles, growing out of the Behring Sea controversury. Although there
have been no formal conferences at the
Btate department, it is not an unusual
sight for the British minister equipage
to be seen standing in front of secretary
Blaine's residence, and minister Charles
Emery Smith, who has recently been
appointed minister to Russia, is also a
frequent visitor at the .big red house,
and it may be a coincidence, but it is
usually at the same time that Hon.
Charles Tupper, and Sir Julian Pauncefote are present.   Among the arrivals
tlie chief agent was out of the city at
the time the dispatch was sent.
When the steamer arrived Buttery was
found among the cabin passengers.' He
was very indignant when arrested, and
said that it was a mistake to arrest him.
He refused to talk about the case, all he
would say being that it was all a bluff
to get him back.to Victoria. When
searched i860 in greenbacks and gold
was found on him.
Bared and _o»t.
London, March 3,—A despatch from
Brisbane says the S.S. Quetta, which recently foundered at sea on lier voyage
from Cooktown, Queensland, for London, had on board 280 persons. Of these
110 were saved, including the captain
and several of the officers of the ship.

High Water.
Lanoastkb, Ky., March 3.—A special
despatch from Buckeye says: The Kentucky River is higher by many feet than
ever known before. At the mouth of
Point Lickman many houses are under

away. A warehouse nnd storehouse belonging to Miles Saunders were swept
down the river yesterday. Another late

The American Way.
Washington, March 8.—Accusations
of cruelty on the part of army and navy
oflicers to subordinates, as charged in
the cases of Private Wild and the sailors
on board the Enterprise, have created n
great deal of gossip in army and navy
circles hero. Within the next fow
weeks, court martials will probably be
undei way, one trying Lieut. Steele of
the army at Fort Snelling, Minn., for
persecuting aud imprisoning a private
soldier for refusing to perform menial
services for him, and another trying
Commander McCalla for cutting down
with hiB sword a sailor, for breach of
naval regulations. Brutality ou the
part of the officers, It is maintained, is
not at all necessary to the proper enforcement of discipline. In tne case of
Lieut. Steele, General Crook is now pre-
8aring a court martial for his trial,
officially the case of Commander McCalla, of the Enterprise, has not been
called to the attention of Secretary
Tracy, but as soon as it is, the secretary
will doubtless follow the example of
Secretary Proctor nnd ordor a court
martial to ascertain all the facts in the
Private advices received here respecting the two cases mentioned, corroborate the newspaper accounts
which have been published about them,
Terriblo Effects.
Massuxon, Ohio, Mar, 3.—An oil
tank on the 3rd section of Ft, Wayne
train No. 03 exploded early this morning
at Lakevillo, west of here. The train
stopped aud the fourth section following
close behind crashed into it causing a
terrible wreck which took fire and
burned up. Engineer John Cowan,
Fireman Harvey Gatehouse and Brake-
man Miller of the fourth section were
killed. Gatehouse's body cannot be
found and it is feared he was cremated
in the ruins. Eighteen cars saturated
with oil burned, and the heat was so
great the engine bell melted, while tlie
ties for 1600 feet were consumed and the
track twisted out of shape.
Cold In  the   South.
SAVANAii,Ga., March 8.—Alight snow
fell here tliis morning, the tlrst snow full
for many years. Ice formed last night
and vegetation generally is blighted.
The damage to garden crops cannot us
yet be estimated, but it is very lurge,
Killed by the Cold.
St. Louis, March 3.—Reports from
Northern Texas say that hundreds of
range cattle have been frozen to death
during the present cold spell, and that
unless the weather greatly moderates
the loss of stock will be very severe.
Cold and Clear.
Charleston, S, C, March 8.—Snow
fell for three hours to-day, from nine
o'clock until noon. It melted as it fell,
however, and at 6 p. in. the weather was
clear. 	
Another Great Trait.
Chicaoo, Meh. 3.—The Herald to-day
says that with the exception of five
companies all the refining and smelting
companies of the United States have
formed a trust with a capital of $25,000,-
000, of which $15,000,000 is to be common stock, and the remaining $10,000,-
000, preferred stock. The common stock
is to be used for the payment of fixed
properties that go iuto tno new organization, and the preferred Btook for the
purchase of ore and such personal property as it may be necessary to have.
The chief object of the smelters, itis
said, Is to place their interests entirely
beyond the absolute control of the lead
trust.

The  German Election!.
Berlin, March 3.—Up to 9:80 this
morning the official returns of re-ballots
show that 9 Conservatives, 8 Imperialists, 17 National-Liberals, 33 Freisen-
nings, 18 Socialists, 3 Guilpbs, and 0
Democrats have been elected. In the
second division of Berlin the Socialists
polled 3000 more votes In the re-ballot
than they did in the first ballot. In the
other divisions there was little variation
in the polling.
Another Eiffel Tower.
London, March 3.—-M. Eiffel, the celebrated French Engineer, has arrived in
London. The chief object of his visit is
to confer with Sir Edward Watkin regarding the proposed tower to be constructed in England on the lines of M.
EifTel'B Paris tower, though larger.
The End  Near.
London, March 3.—Although Master
Lincoln apparently maintains his
strength, his physicians say he is slowly
sinking and express their fears that the
end is uot far off. He experiences little
or no pain, and is uniformly cheerful.
Ntormi and   Ship wrecks.
Lonuon, March 3.—A fierce snow
storm, accompanied by high winds, is
prevailing in the south of England, and
on the English channel. Several shipwrecks have already beeu roported, in
one of which three men were drowned.
The Cr.»r'» Mistake.
London, Mar. 8.—The Russian Government now recognizes its mistake in
making a demand for indemnity upon
Bulgaria in reply to the request of thut
Srincipality for the recognition of its in-
ependenee.. This is one of the swords
which Russia has held over Bulgaria
since the Emperor's troops were dominant in Bulgaria, ostensibly engaged in
restoring onler, but really intending to
remain there permanently, if the slightest pretext could be found for such action. It was, of course, presumed that
Bulgaria was unablo to pay even a considerable portion of the sum demanded,
hence tho peremptory tone of Russia's
requisition. To tho astonishment oftho
Czar's Government, however, Bulgaria
has intimated her perfect willingness to
fay, much to Russia's disgust, and to
he disappointment and the regret of
many Russian agents, whose recent
machinations in the Balkan States have
all been in the direction of precipitating
a Russian invasion of Bulgaria as there-
suit of her failure to comply with Russia's demands.
The Lake Shore Itoad.
Judge Thomas Burke, D. H. Gilman,
Treasurer J. S. Dunham nnd Chief En*
ineer F. II. Talcott returned yesterdu;
The meeting Saturday night in the
city hall, called by Mayor Brown, at the
request of Mr. Thos. Cunningham, M.
P.P., to discuss the question of inserting an anti-Chinese clause in tbe New
Westminster Electric Street Railway
Bill, was large, enthusiastic and noisy.
The Mayor being absent through illness,
Mr. D. McGregor moved that Mr. James
W> Harvey take the chair, which was
carried unanimously, aud Mr. McGregor
was elected secretary. Tbe chairman
thun briefly stated the object of the
meeting aud invited general discussion
on the question.
Mr. E. S. Scoullar was the first to take
the floor. He was delighted to read
the telegram from Mr. Cunningham
calling for a meeting to give an opportunity for the citizens to express their
sentiments ou the question of anti-
Chinese legislation.     He was heartily
Kut in the bill themselves, as Senator
[clnues and Mr. A. M. Herring had
done with tlieir similar bill. Some of
the members of the company might not
wish to employ Chinese at present, but
it would not do to leave the question to
the company. They should be prevented by tlie provisions of the bill. Mr.
Armstrong wbb repeatedly interrupted,
and Mr. Scoullar rushed up and took a
scat on the platform so as to be prepared to speak without loss of time. This
greatly annoyed Mr. Armstrong, who
charged Mr. Scoullar with being not a
"particle of a gentleman" for interrupting him. Mr. Scoullar finally apologised
and took his seat, and Mr, Armstrong
concluded with an eloquent and touching appeal for everyone to vote forthe
amendment.
Mr. Scoullar then took the stand. He
wanted'to know who was a greater friend
of the Chinese than Mr. Armstrong,
Mr. Armstrong—Don't you get personal, now!
Mr. Scoullar—Now don't you inter-
in sympathy with the movement and
believed that the Chinese should be
excluded from all works of a public
nature in the Province. He wob a large
property holder in Westminster and all
his interests were centred in the Royal
City, and ho was, therefore, Btrongly in
favor of any move that would increase
her prosperity and the prosperity of her
citizens. The speaker concluded by
moving the following resolution, which
was seconded by Mr. Ben. Douglas:
Resolved—That it is the opinion of
this meeting that our member, Thomas
Cunningham, Esq., should spare no
effort to see that every private and public bill which is now, or may be brought
before the Legislative Assembly for incorporating any company or providing
* iblic work, shall
a young man named Norman Buttery,
who left that city on the str. Queen ol
the Pacific, for San Francisco.   Buttery
was employed as the chief clerk inthe
O.P.R. office, and his sudden departure
was regarded with suspicion. It is not
yet known whether he got away with
any of the company's money or not, as
?[ineer n. n. tbicoh returned yesterday
rom Spokane Falls, where they attended the proceedings instituted by Van
Houten to have a receiver appointed for
the Seattle, Lake Shore & EaBtem railroad. The gentlemen were in excellent
spirits, and all expressed themselves as
well satisfied with the outcome of what
they considered a bold attempt to destroy the line and prevent its completion
to the boundary. Managing Trustee
and Treasurer Dunham sold yesterday
that tho outcome, although not a surprise, was none the less pleasing, and if
the object of the enemy had been to Injure the road the result had been the
very reverse, us the friends of the road
were stronger than ever, and would urge
the work of extension more than ever.
Chiof Engineer Talcott, when seen by a
reporter, said he was not surprised at
the outcome of the proposed suit, and
the only effect of the affair would be to
cause tno work to be pushed with greater vigor than ever; bonds or no bonds,
the road would be built. Several telegrams had beeu received from President
Van Horno, of the Canadian Pacific railway, advising that the branch of that
Hue to the boundnry would be constructed In a short time. Tlie Seattle, Lake
Shore & Eastern railroad will be completed to the boundary next fall, but ns
hooii as tho Canadian roud is built tothe
boundary work will be extended from
that end for about fifteen miles, the
Shore line shipping its rails over the
Canadian road, which with materially
forward the work of construction. Thero
are now between 700 and 800 men nt
work on the extension, and more will be
sent out in a short time. Already over
twenty six miles of track have beeu laid,
reaching a point about twelve miles
north of Snohomish, while the work of
clearing and grading is now progressing
very favorably. Chief Engineer Talcott
will probably go out Monday to Inspect
the work as far aB the track has been
laid—Pott Intelligencer, Feb. 17.

Viotoria a Terminal.
Information of a reliable nature haB
been recoived in this city of the intention of the Union Pacific Railroad to
push their line through to Port Angeles,
and that large wharves will be built
there, (10.000 for the purchase of a site
having already been expended. An
agent of tho company will also shortly
interview the board of aldermen and the
mayor in reference to the establishment
of a terminus of the road at this city.
The plau is to have large and swift forry
boats built which will take trains from
tho wharf at Port Angelos to Victoria
harbor, thus making this city the practical western terminus of the Union Pacific system. If this is done Victoria's
position us a commercial centre will be
f;i*oatly strengthened. Thero is certain-
y some big deal going on, and thore Is
every reason to believe that the Union
Puelilc intend to make Port Angeles the
terminus of their American system, anc!
in consequence of this holders of property in that city are exporting a sharp
rise in values very shortly. A strong
pressure is also being brought to bear to
mnke Port Angeles u sub port of entry,
and everything points to an early stir
there.—Times,
for any public work, shall prohibit the
employment of any Chinese by any
such company for any purposo whatever or in the currying out of any such
work, nnd that Mr. Cunningham be requested to present this resolution to the
Speaker at the next sittingof the House,
and that copies be sent to ull the newspapers for publication.
Mr. Thos. Cunningham then came
forward, He reviewed his courso in the
House, particularly with respect to the
question introducing an anti-Chineso
clause into the bill under discussion. He
was glad to say that he had the Premier
with him on this question, although
some of the district members had gone
back on their word after promising to support the clause. The reason for this, he
'ound, was that there had been extensive lobbying done. Mr. Corbould, who
represented the Electric Street Railway
Co. in tho House, hud brought influence
to bear upon the members against the
insertion of the proposed clause. He
had told the speaker that the company
didn't wish the clause put in the bill, to
which ho (Mr. Cunningham) had replied that he wasn't there to represent
companies, but tho people, and lie had
had this meeting called to ascertain
what was the desire of his constituents
iu tho niatter, so that he might be in u
position to insist upon such legislation
as they wished. (Applause). It wus
plainly in tho public interest that an
unti-Chiuese ctuuse should be inserted
iu this bill. Every ouo know whut the
Chinese were. He would admit thut he
hud employed them himself, but he had
made nothing by it, aud if he had the
say thore would not be a Chinaman in
tho country. (Hear, hear.) Thero would
bo u large sum of money expended ou
the proposed street railway, and it wbb
quite proper for the Legislature, which
was asked to givo certain privileges, to
say thnt no Chinoso should bo employed
on tho work. But besides the question
of dollars uud conts thore was another
important objection: There was no
corporation in the Province tbnt employed Chinamen on the public Btreets,
the Government did not enploy Chinese
labor, and he believed he might sny the
Govemmeut would not dare to do so.
To puss an uct, then, incorporating a
company, the most of whose work would
be done upou the public streets, aud allowing them to employ Chinese, where
the corporation cau not do so, would
givo rise to a conflict of authority and
endless trouble. Tho speaker said he
desired such an expression from the
meeting as would give him the right to
say thut the people of Westininster protested ngninst tho employment of
Chineso by uny corporation whatever.
As to the resolution before the meeting,
be was afraid it was not honest. (Cries
of Oh! Oh! and great uproar.) It was
too sweeping, and would not carry in the
Houso, and the movers of the resolution
knew that as well ns anybody. (Renewed
uproar, cheers, und cries of dissent.)
Mr. Jaquos emerged from tho surging
throng und made his way to tho platform. He suid he could state, on behalf
of the company, thut Mr. Corbould, the
company's legal representative, Imd
never been authorized to oppose the
insertion of an anti-Chinese clause in
the bill. The,company did not intend
to employ Chinese. They never thought
of such a thing. This agitation on the
subject was n political scheme of some
sort (Hear, hear, from a number of
voices).
Mr. Jos, Armstrong thon mounted the
rostrum and announced that be hud n
resolution to submit to the meoting,
which he forthwith commenced to read,
wheu ho wns stopped by noisy interruptions. Upon getting a hearing Mr. Armstrong read tlie resolution, in amendment, as follows:
That, whereas, application has beeu
made to tho Provincial Legislature for
the right to construct and maintain a
street railway in thia city; and,
Whereas, it has boen brought to the
notice of this meeting by our member,
Mr. Cunningham, that a bill is now before
runt me!   (Laughter.)   ^^•____■___■_■
Mr. Seoullar. continuing, why should
Mr. Armstrong bring in this resolution
for this city alone? Why not bring it
in for the province? There wbb more
beneath this matter than appeared ou
tho surface. The speaker requested the
secretary to read over the original resolution, and said he defied any one In the
house to say there was auy exception
to it.
Mr. Ben. Douglas next mounted the
platform. He Bald Mr. Cunningham had
seen fit to state that Mr. Corbould had
objected to the Insertion of on anti-
Chinese clause in the bill. Mr, Corbould had no instructions to oppose the
clause iu question. He (the speaker)
waB one of the promoters of tlie bill,
and the company did not care if there
were one hundred aud one anti-Chinese
clauses ip the bill. He would like to
see a little consistency iu Mr. Cunningham. There waB the Royal City Mills
Co., which employed a great many
Chinamen. Why did Mr. Cunningham
not put this clause in their bill ? Why was
Mr. Armstrong objecting so strongly to
Chinese being employed on this particular work, when Mr. Armstrong, as
everyone knew, was almost the
father of the Chinese. (Laughter). Mr.
Cunningham employed Chinamen to
pick hia berries(laughter)andalso as carpenters. He (the speaker) hnd never
employed Chinamen when he could possibly avoid it.
Mr. Cunningham again took the platform, He said he thought he hod made
his position clear on the question. The
point was this; Nearly all the work on
the electric street railway would be done
on the streets; the corporation could not
employ Chinamen on the public streets,
and there would arise a conflict of authority. The resolution introduced by Mr.
Scoullar was too sweeping, end would
not pass, and he (the mover) knew it.
Mr. Scoullar—Hus uot the corporation
the power to pass a by-law prohibiting
the employment of Chinamen on the
streets ?
Mr. Cunningham—If we pass an Act
of Parliament empowering a company to
employ Chinamen, that would bring
about a conflict of authority.
Mr. Scoullar—I Bay that the city of
New WeBtmlnster can prohibit them.
Mr. Cunningham—Suppose I grant
that, you know that in elections for aldermen there is danger there.
Mr. Scoullar—Tlio ratepuyers elect
thom.
Mr. Cunningham—Not always; sometimes corporations do.
Mr. Cunningham, continuing—I think
1 am right, gentlemen. You have got
to say tliat, uo matter what the sentiments of tho members of a company are,
that uo Chinamen shall be employed
upon the streets of Westminster (Hear,
hear, mid cheers).
Mr. Juques—Will you put that clause
In the Royal City bill?
Mr. Cunningham—No; that Is a different mutter, public work is not involved. (Cheers and groans from the
audience.)
Mr. Jos. Armstrong here took the
stand again. He suid there wns just one
point. We were called here as citizens
to protect our own interests and our own
corporate limits. We should attend to
our owu business and not make ourselves offensive und ridiculous in tbe
eyes of the rest of the province on the
employment of Chinese. We simply
wanted to protest, uud to ask our member, Mr. Cunningham, to protest, ugainst
a horde of Chinamen coming into town
and building our street railways. (Cheers
and applause.) But some men's minds
—their mighty military minds! (laughter)—(indicating Captain Scoullar by a
flourish of his arm) extend far beyond
all limits, and the Emperor of all the
Russia's trembled in his boots when
they spoke. Amid great laughter and
uproar, Mr. Armstrong again exhorted
liis hearers to vote for the amendment,
aiid resumed his seat.
Alderman Johnson then promptly took
Mr. Armstrong's place on the rostrum
and brought matters to an issue as follows : He was, he said, the enemy of no
man, not even of John Chinaman. This
scorned to be, however, a question of
Chinaman versus white man, and if one
must go, he would say let the Chinaman
go. (Applause). It seemed to him that
both the original motion and Mr. Armstrong's amendment were very much
alike, but stilltheydiffered—adiflerence
which, perhaps, he could not point out,
not being in tne inner circle. He liked
the amendment best, however, and was
going to vote for it. Without further
talk lie thought the anieudn. nit and the
motion might be at once put, and the
question settled.
The chairman theu put the amendment, those voting responding "aye"
and "no." The result was considered
uncertain, uud the motion wus also put,
with a like result, although, amid much
confusion, the motion was vociferously
declared to be carried and the amendment lost, by voices from the audience.
On a show of hands being demanded,
however, the amendment was plainly
tarried by au overwhelming majority,
Tho meeting then adjourned at about
9:30 p.m., and the question became the
subject of more or leBB angry talk among
various kuots of interested disputants.

f Prom Onr Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, March 3.—Mr. Barron contended thut the Grand Orange Lodge of
British America should receivo incorporation. He considered that because the
Bociety Is one to advance the Protestant
religion it Bhould not be deprived of incorporation. The society is organized
for benevolent purposes, nnd does not
interfere with Lower Canada.

Col. Amyot would be glad if the bill
had another name, because the term
" Orange Lodge" to many moans aggression towards tlie Catholics.

THE "SWEATING" SYSTEM.
From timo to time the despatches
published in our. columns refer to the
. "swoating" system, aud the evils atten-
dnut thereon. Only a few days ngo a
telegram from London culled attention
to the condition of the journeymen
tailors, who, being dissatisfied with the
interim report of the House of Lords
committee, hud determined upon a
strike, It is no exaggeration tb sny thnt
in the event of any such courso being
entered upon by the men, a most dreadful stnto of affairs would inevitably follow ; thousands of the very poor would
at a step cross the bordor line which di*
vides them from abject destitution, and
a population, equal to or perhaps greater
than that of some of ohr large Canadian
cities, would in a moment he absolutely
unable to count on a crust of bread.
This, combined with the crowded state
of the hovels these people Jive in, and a
lack of proper sanitary conditions, would
of necessity give rise to a state of affairs
calculated to make the most unthinking
pause and ask themselves whether
statesmanship or philanthropy has no
remedy to suggest whereby "Man's inhumanity to man" might be made impossible, either by stringent legislation
or the awakening of a public sentiment
which would make "sweating" an outrage upon the public conscience and
cause the "sweater" to be regarded ns
being little better thnu the murderer.
The mau who traffics iu human life,
whether he be called slave dealer,
sweater, or anything more or less
euphonious, is equally an enemy to our
common humanity in goneral and to the
particular state of society in which he
may be living.
Mr. John Burnett, the labor correspondent of the English Board of Trade,
haa defined "sweating" as a system
whereby sub-contractors "undertake to
" do work and employ others to do it,
" making a profit for themselves by the
" difference between the contract prices
" and the wuges thoy pay thoir assist-
" ants." Frequently sub-contractors lot
to other sub-contractors, and so on, until at length the workers have to be content with a wage grown "small by degrees aud beautifully less." Itis principally in the tailoring trades that the
full horror of this system ia felt, although
its grinding tyranny is by no moans confined thereto. Six years ago the Amalgamated Society of Tailors gave the total number of persona employed in their
trade undor this "sweating system" at
15,000, hi London alone, and it ia reasonable to Biipposo that those figures are now
greatly below the actual facts. The object of the "sweater" being his own
gain, the nctunl workers are ground
down to the very lowest possible limit,
Mr. Burnett boldly asserting thnt the
people employed under such n system
"mny be anid to exist, but cunnot by uny
"possibility enjoy life." A very notable feature of this system is the payment of premiums to "sweating masters"
by foreign immigrants, principally Polish and Russian refugees, who continuously swarm into .London. At nu inquest in the Eaat End of that city facte
came to light showing that a certain
Russian Jew, quite unable to speak English, with a wife and six children, and
absolutely destitute, was a very fair example of the men employed by the subcontractors. With such a class of people constantly flowing into the congested
localities of Whitechapel and Mile End,
it Is apparent that the sub-contractor
hns very little difficulty in keeping wages
at the starvation point. Fierco competition, in order to keep body and soul together, results only in lengthening out
existence for the workers, that they may
still further help to line the pockets of
thoBe whose money is verily coined from
human blood.
Pope bus suid: "Whatever is is right,"
but even that very complacent body,
the House of Lords, hardly goes to such
lengths, and its committeo, although it
has failed to come to any very definite
conclusions on the "sweating system,"
has proved to be a useful body in focussing attention to an evil which has already reached gigantic proportions, and
which must lto effectually crushed out
by legislative means, in the face of the
growing |>ower of the democracy aud of
au enlightened public sentiment. In
the Parliamentary session of 1880 a
great quantity of evidonco, dealing with
all sides of the question, was taken by
.the Lord's committee, and although no
definite suggestions have as yot been
mnde by that body for remedying what
ull admit to be a great social and economic sore, the chairman of the committee, Lord Dunraven, has not been bnck
ward in letting the world know that his
sympathies are with the oppressed. It
matters not n jot that his lx>rdship is
quite enable to see that already his ideas
are moro advanced than those of even
the Radical party, for, ns ho ia prepared
to vote for the amelioration of the oppressed poor, nobody will grumble because he prefers to call himself Tory.
"What's in a name?"
First of all, the chairman of the
"sweating" committeo favors the state
regulation of foreign imiH,ratlon, holding that "foreign immigration of a cer-
"tain kind ousts nnd degrndea British
"labor; it causes the survival of the un-
"fittest in everything except their nbil-
"ity to live under circumstances which
"we all consider to be farbolow the
"propor standard of life," The regulation of hours of labor, and the settlement of labor disputes by boards of conciliation are also favored by Lord Dunraven, who very plainly sees that the
question of capital and labor Is one of
immense delicacy, demanding sacrifices
and forbearance alike on the part of employer and employees. A public man
of our own times has said that "atate-
'manship effects by peaceful means
'what revolution endeavors, to attain
"by violence," or words to thut purposo,
and the truth of thiBis generally accepted.
A state of society where men by thousands are constantly at their wits' ends
for means to obtain the bare necessities
of life is a standing menace to the general welfare, and bad enough in ull conscience, but when this state of affairs is
aggravated by the oppression of taskmasters, more exacting than those of
Egypt, when in addition it is remembered that a large percentage of the destitute foreign element iu England is made
up of a hotch-potch of refugees, political
and otherwise, from all parte of discontented Europe, euough bus been suggested to provo that anything tending to
aggravate existence under such circumstances deserves at the earliest opportunity the sympathetic attention of all
earnest men, whothor they bo parliamentarians, philanthropists, or simply
citizens.
It iB a fact of significance, thut the
London County Council seems fully to
hnve grasped the necessity of dealing a
death blow, nn fur us lies In its power,
at the " sweating system." Recently,
when calling for contracts for tho supply
of boots for the Metropolitan firemen,
the County Council inserted in its ad-
vertisments u condition thnt every firm
tendering ahould satisfy the Council thut
it paid a fare rato of wages to its workmen. Such a stipulation of itself proves
beyond doubt that tho " swouting system" has become such n crying evil that
a great responsible body like the London
Oounty Couucil sees the absolute necessity of setting its fuce ngninst whnt, if it
were allowed to continue Us growth unchecked, would certainly cause grcut
trouble in the near futuro, with -tho possibility of revolution and bloodshed.
The demand of the County Couucil that
those who take ita contracts shall deal
justly by tholr workmen, seoms to recognise that while
■■• Some aro and must bo greater limn the rest,
moro rich, moro wise,"
The fact remains that
"Hometlmos virtue starves, while vino is fed."
SCIENTIFIC   MISCELLANY.
A French electrician has found that
the electric current retards tho separation of cream und preserves the milk.
The extension ladder fire escape has
beeu adopted by the German army ns a
moro satisfactory apparatus than the
balloon from which to watch nn enemy.
A fluid soldering flux, u solution of
rosin in. a volatile solvent, hna been
patented in England by Mr. J. H. Watkins. It is more convenient than rosin,
and is useful for any work in wliich that
substance cau be employed.
The greatest depth known in the

Many bacteria, states Professor Law,
nre capable of doubling themsel yoa overy
hour under the best conditions, a single
bacterium giving 10,777,220 iu 24 hours.
In 48 hours the offspring from a germ
measuring 1-15,000 part of un inch would
fill a half pint measure, the number
reaching 281,500,000.
Wohk in a Mountain Ascent.—Di*. J.
Bucheister, has calculated the amount
of energy expended by u person weighing 108 pounds iu climbing u peak 7000
feet high, the timo occupied boing llvo
hours. He finds that tho total work
done is equal to that of raising 1,380,000
pounds one foot, or one pound 1,880,-
000 feet. Of this work, 1,170,000 foot
pounds is expended by the muscles of
the legs in lifting tho body; 120,000 by
the heart in circulating tho blood; 30,-
000 by the chest in breathing; and 54,-
000 in the various exertions of balancing
the body, overcoming friction of the
ground, etc.
A Gbhmax Building Matekial.—-Hollow cast-iron bricks huve been patented
in Germany by August Bockel, of Erfurt.
They are of the size nnd shape of ordinary bricks, nnd the sides nro an eighth
of aii inch thick. Thoy nre to be used
without mortar or other binding material, being held together by grooves and
projecting ribs fitting into oue nuother
on the upper nnd lower sides, There
are also two circulur openings in the top
of each brick, into which properly
formed projections on the brick above;
oue of them hook-shaped, enter aud give
greater firmness of hold. The points are
made tight with a suitable paint.
Cocoanut Butter.—A fatty substitute
for butter having been discovered iu the
cocoanut by Dr. Schlunk, a factory for
producing the substanco was established
at Mannheim, Germany, nbout a yenr
ago. According to Consul Monnghun,
this factory now employs 25 workmen,
aud turns out daily a ton of cocoanut
buttor, which is retailed ut ubout 15
cents per pound. Tho new product is
snid to be better adapted to kitchen
than to tablo use; but it is already pro
forred ut hospitals ou nccount of Ua
purity nnd digestibility, and is rapidly
finding its wuy into homes whore tho
people are too poor to buy butter.
Supply of Nickel.—Small quantities
of nickel are obtained from various
localities in the United States and other
countries, but the world's chief supply
is stated to have como thus fnr from the
mines of a French company in New
Caledonia, whose output, has been about
1,000 tons yearly. At the copper mines
hear Sudbury, Out.,however, nickel hna
now been found in such quantity that
Dr. Peters has offered to produce 2,000
tons of the metal annually. Lute discoveries of nickol ore havo alao boen
made in the Ural. Tho increase iu the
supply of this metal isexpected to bring
iuto extensive ubo the valuable alloys
of nickel with steel and with copper.
Physiology op Evil.—Dr. B. W. Richardson declares that the man of science
finds two natural causes of evil In mankind—heredity and early environment.
The operation of those causes is made
conspicuous in a novel investigation carried ont by Mr. Dugdale, of Sow York,
who has been able to trace one criminal
family back to the time of tlie settlement of Ub first members in America.
He has found thnt from thia parent
Stock hnve sprung 1200 descendants, nnd
has followed the life record of 700, not
one of whom has escaped the contamination of evil or its consequences. His
researches have led to tho estimate thnt
in 75 years tho treatment of the crimes
of this family haa cost the state more
than a million and a quarter of dollars.
Those who are  bom bad, however, ure
not always incurable. Mr. Isaac Ashe,
president of the Central Criminal Asy-. j
lum, Dublin, has suggested thut inherit-)
ed tendencies to crime bo treated in the
young by teaching useful occupations,
culling into pluy the faculties exercised
in the criminal acts. ThuB, the child of u
clever forger may be educated into an
honest draughtsman; and the natural
inclinations of children of generations of
pickpockets muy be turned into healthy
channels by teaching some handicraft
requiring a special capacity of finger,
such ns watch making. But to attempt
to eradicate u criminal tendency without such utilization of it is futile.
Electricity Diiiect from Coal.—One
of the grentest problems now awaiting
solution is that of avoiding tho present
enormous wasto in converting fuel into
motive power. Electricians uro striving
to accomplish the desired result by
means of apparatus for generating electricity from conl direct, but tho"pyro*
magnetic generator" of Edison and
other similar machines have thus fnr
failed to do this Batisfnctorily. In a recentaddreBs, Pro. John Perry, F.R.S.,
snid: "J pointed out in 1KH1 that if coal
or gas wero burnt in a voltaic cell, us
zinc iB burnt, and an electro-motor
woro used, we could utilize us mechanical energy not merely one-tenth but
nourly nine-tenths of lho energy of coal.
I pointed out thon that coal-gus could
be burnt in this way, but there wore
two difficulties: First, tho apparatus
required was too large por horse-power
dovoloped; second, the apparatus required wns too expensive. The first of
these difficulties hns already been got
over by u correspondent, who is in somo
sense my partner. Wo see our wuy to
developing ono useful horse-power per
cubic foot of volume of apparatus. Un*
fortunately, the difficulty of expense re*
mains. But I am firmly convinced, and
I have good reason for my belief, thnt
ull the difiiculticB will be got rid of, and
thut coul will netually be burnt in this
way. Even to thoBO of you who may
not be troubled ubout the general question of economy, the mere possibility of
un armor-clad being able te carry enougli
conl for u voyage nt full speed around
tho world must appear to bo an important result."

BY A TORN OF THE KEY.
The Neat Way ln Whioh Madge
Captured the Bobbers.
"Weill Good-bye, Madge, and take
isare of yourself; the gig Is alongside, so
i suppose I must be off; but I wish to
goodness you bad lot me chuck the
whole thing over when I spoke about it
thia morning; I hate leaving you all by
yourself. Well, at any rate, I shan't be
late."
So spoke Bertie Hepburn, the owner
of the yacht Cormorant, as smart a
sohooner aB ever flew the white ensign,
Lo his wife, who was standing rather
disconsolately at tho door of the main
cabin, while her husband struggled Into
a huge oilflkin-coat, preparatory to going ashore.
It was a wild night, dark as pitch, the
rain was falling in torrents, and an icy
1 wind, blowing straight from the
Apennines, did not mako matters more
comfortable. The Cormorant had boon
weathor-bound in the harbor of Port
Ereole, an unimportant town about
eighty miles north of Civita Vecchia,
for nearly a week; there was absolutely
nothing to be seen there; but theharbor
was a good ono, and the weather outside
was deoidedly "dirty."
Thoy had been oruislng for about
Hired months in the Meditomuioan, und
meant to prolong tho cruise till spring,
ilertlo Hepburn was a man who, huppy
..ml contented-every whore, was never so
huppy as ou board his own yacht, and
l.e was moro fortunate than many yaoht-
■iwiiers in ono respect, Inasmuch as hiB
wifo, protty, oharming Madge Hepburn,
. was as devoted to a seafaring life as he
was himself.
She hud not evon grumbled over their
forced dotention at Fort Ercole, as so
many womon would have done, and It
was sho who had insisted on Rcrtio
Keeping his engagement to dine with
llm Vino-Consul on Christmas Eve. That
urifui'tunato gentleman, whose life,
paused among a peoplo with whom he
.' .id nothing lu common, was one round
if dull routine, wut: delighted towel-
i..mo tho owner of any sivuy yuuht
I'i'iveii by stress of weather into Lhe
* nur haven of Port Ercole. and, on the
■■■■rival of the Cormorant, had como on
hoard in stute to hid them to a dinner
;.b the shabby house dignified by tlio
inline of Her lti'iLannio Majesty's Vice-
Consulate. Mudgo bad sent an excuse,
a perfectly truo one, thut a bud cold
prevented her coming ashore In such
.(•nther, but she would not hoar of hor
husband also throwing over bis en-
gagomont.
"1 shall be all right, Bertie," sho
t.aid. "1 bave no end of letters to write,
i.ml you won't be late." There wus an
titter absence of joviality about the
r.ieal, and she got through it as quickly
ti.i possible, uiUQli to tho secret joy of
fhe steward, who bad liis own plans for
his evening's amusement ou handi
"If you I'leaHe, ma'am," said lie, as ho
cleared tho things away, "I should Hlto
to go ashore this evening, If you have
no objection."
"Ohl no, cortainly you aro welcome to
go."
"If you please, ma'am," said hor maid
I've minutes afterward, "the captain
bays there aro grout'doings in lho eu-
ihcdral to-night, and he will tako mo
utdioro to bave a look at them If you
don't want mo."
"No, you oan go by all means. Dunne,"
said her mistress; "but I'm afraid you'll
yetvory wot landing."
Their departure in the dinghey five
biinutea after seemed to leavo lho yacht
wonderfully quiet. There was not a
t .imd to bo heard but the drip ot tho
"iin ou deck und tho moaning of tlie
i.liidintho rigging. Tho sailors were
itll tiling in tho foo'sle, but no sound of
lol.i'S camo from thenco, and the good
i..hi[j Cormorant might havo boon a derelict as far as any life on board was conn-rued,
t Madge Hepburn, who was both 1m-
presslouable and Imaginative, was impressed by the stillness in Bplte of her-
null, "W<i must koop each othor company, Cheviot," said she to tho big black-
iind-taii Jill' ep-dog who lay asleep on the
mil-in lloor, but bo refused absolutely to
miler Into conversation; his manner
bhowed deoidedly that ho did not wish
tu bo disturbed, nnd, as his mistress
would not desist, he got up sulkily,
titretobed himsolf half a down times,
und slowly and heavily lurchod out of
thn cabin, aud up the companion, whilo
tv thump overhead a minuto later told
Mrs, Hepburn be preforrod the cold and
uot on deck to her society. Tho stillness seemed more remarkable uow
Cheviot bad left ber, and sbo had not
noticed before how chilly tho cabin had
grown; had tho steward been on board
htio would have had the stove relighted,
but Bhe did not caro to disturb the sailors; sho could settlo to nothing;
tlio letters woro not to ho
thought of; sho ransacked the book-
.lielves, but she seemed to have road
, nvery thing, and was not In the mood to
re-read oven Kldor Haggard or Rhoda
Pi'oughton.
i "Thank goodness," said she, "there
poos four bolls; there is no good sitting
In this cold, gloomy oabin sny longer.
I shall be off to bed."
• Her oabin was, Indeed, a pretty nest
for such a pretty bird; on lta fluted
hangings twined rosea and forget-mo-
nott, while laughing cupids pooped from
among the flowers; aU wu dainty and
delicate, but somehow to-night It did
not soom cheerful; the lamp was not
burning so brightly as usual) and, onco
safe in her pretty berth, Madge eould
not seo to read as sbe had intended.
Sho tries to sleep, but nover felt more
wide awake, and now six bells are
struck, and she reflects with Joy that tn
an hour at latest ber husband will be
baok. All is wrapped in silliness. No
sound falls on ber ear but the "wash of
tho wave'' on the yacht's aide at her
head, and tbe drip, drip of the rain on
deck. But stay! tbat surely Is a loudor
sound tban tbe water that ripples so
close to hor. Uis too muffled to bo oars;
all tbe same there Is a distinct splash,
and a sort of jar on the ship's side.
Madge alts up to listen, and her senso of
hearing seems to becomo preternatural*
ly sharpened; she hears a footstep, soft
ai velvet, on the dock, right overhead,
Th»t is not the way Bertie would oome
on boird, lot alone the party who, hoad-
nd by the captain, had gone ashore.
Now sbe bears more footsteps and
fchon-obt what Is that going on? There
conies a low. deep growl from Cheviot, a
growl tbat ends In an odd kind of gurgle,
and a noise of something heavy falling.
Light Bteps seem to cross the deok
and come down tbe companion, and
through tbe keyhole of her door shines
the faintest glimmer of light; in one
moment Bhe is out of her berth and at
her door—alasl it has got no key, and
those in the yacht, whoever they are,
have got her at their mercy.
For a few minutes the poor ohild feels
utterly confused, and then all of a sudden her senses return to her; she rolls
herself In a long, dark boat-cloak tbat
Ib hanging on a book, puts out her light,
and cautiously—for ber life depends on
it—opens the door and looks out
There Ib a little bit of passage between her and the main cabin, from
whioh comes a dim light; a faint olash
of metal oan be heard, but neither voice
nor sound.
The companion-ladder Ib between the
two cabins and the passage is nearly
pitch dark, while there Ib always the
friendly shelter of one or two unused
cabin doors.
Shall sbe wait fn her oabin, perhaps
to he caught like a rat in a trap; or
shall sbo crawl along the passage, mako
a dash for tho companion, and get on
deck somehow to give tho alarm to the
sailors? She elects to attempt the latter.
Three Bteps and she is crouching at
tho foot of the stair, and can see iuto
tho saloon. On tbe floor, with his hack
to the door, one man kneels, and she
sees him filling an empty bag with all
tho yaoht's silver, Tbo door of Bertio's
droBsing-rooin is open, and anothor
beetle-browed and brawny Italian
rutllan has his hands on a heap of sovereigns, tho broken cash-box boing on
tho floor at hie feet. A third mun Is in
tho main cabin. Ho is standing beside
an open drawer, his bead partly turned
away from tho door, but Madgo fools he
ls tbo greatest danger, and that at any
moment ho may look round.
As sho stands there her oye falls on
the strong koy that is in tho lock of
the main cabin door. She can almost
touch it. If sbe did but reach lt could
sbe lock tbem in before they could stop
hor? Abovo all, would the koy turn?
She knows nothing about its looking
powers, and it might easily bo rusty.
But Madge. Hepburn is no coward, and
tho fighting blood of a wild bordor
strain runs hotly in her veins. As sho
mado up her mind she acted.
Concealment was now of no use; sho
sprang at tho door, and as sbe did so
tho third man turned and saw her. Two
rtcps and he was across tho room, but
one second hud su Diced for Mudge. The
door banged to; tlio koy was stiff,
indeed, but terror gave her fingers a
strength sbo did not know tiiey possessed, and beforo the burglar actually
touched the door bundle tho bolt shot
home. A volley of Italian oaths and a
blow which nil but knocked a panol out
of the door followed, but Madge soomed
as if she bad wings to her foot. She
flew on deck, and now? What is tliat
whleli fulls on kor ears but tbo blessed
sound bf oars? But. ulna! What is that
blank form that at the samo moment
sho sees stretched on tlio deck, und
what .Is tho dark stream tbat stains its
surface? She dues not know. Her oye.1
are dim; her senses fail her, nnd when
Bertie llopburu jumps on board the
first thing lie soea is his protty Madge
in a dead faint at his feet ljing across
tho lifeless body of poor Cheviot.
Tbe noiso tin:-throe ruilhuis mako in
tbe cabin soon gives him tlm clow to
what has happened, and before poor
Madge has recovered hor senses a free
liglit has lukei! V'lace. and U lho Italian
gentlemen v.vi* ■ a good dual knocked
about by Ih * Kngiisb sailors, they do-
served doublo us much na thoy got, and
the Vice-Consul made it his business to
son tboy got if. in tlie long run.
In souk- mysterious mannor these sea
robbers had discovered that tlio owner
aud a good many of tbo crew of the
Cormorant had gone ashore, and they
thought they would have it nil tbeiv
own way on board. Tbe last thing that
tboy looked for wus that a more girl
should "up and bar tbo door" iu their
faces.—The Queon.
THE WORM   TURNED.
the
An Incident Wlileh Uappened
ruiuiy Days of Cheyenne.
Any ono who knew Choyonno when It
was the terminus of tho Union Pacific
railroad will admit that it was a hard
town, says tbo Now York Sun. Thoro
was more cutting and shooting there ln
a given tlmo than any other Western
town could ever boast of, and no doubt
most of the' blood-letting was a good
thing for tho community.
In the palmy days of tho town I had a
business tlioro, and next fo mo was a
Jew olothior. He oame on frosh from
Now York, knowing nothing of Westorn
ways, and he hadn't got his goods ln bofore be was half Beared to death. But
for the faot that the boys would havo
bursted in his shanty, he would have
kept the door looked halt the time.
Tho toughs soon caught on to the fact
that ho was a coward, and ono aftor anothor went In and bulldozed him and
had great fun at bis expense. I privately advised blm to get a gun and
wing Borne of them, but ho raised his
hands ln boly horror and exclaimed:
"Great heafens! But I nefer handle
nothings but clothing! I kif ten tousand
dollar to bo oudt of dis!"
His cowardice was pitiful to behold,
but a ollmax was coming! One afternoon a tough callod Apache Joe entered the store, having three more
toughs with blm, and began the usual
routine. The Jew bogged and entreated, and actually cried, and in bis disgust at suoh conduct Apacho Joe kiokod
him. That kick acted like magic. Tho
Jew sprang forward, grabbed tho revolver wbloh Joo bad temporarily deposited on tho counter, and I heard six
shots fired as fast as I oould count. Sunning In, I found Apache Joo and one of
his chums kioking tholr last, whilo tbo
other two woro badly woundod, It took
threo of us to bold the Jow from further
violenoo. The worm had turnod and become a tiger. Aftor ho waB acquitted by
the coroner's jury, of which I waB one,
he bought a brace of revolvers, bogan to
practico shooting, and in two weeks was
known for fifty milos around as "Tho
Dangerous Jew." Tho most exaggerated
stories of his prowess were afloat, and
Inside of a month be had to build on,
biro two olerks and get a now stock. It
was tho making of him socially, financially and all other ways, and I know
that his action assisted vory materially
to help the law abiders got the upper
hand and drivo tho lawless gangs
furthor on.
RATS  IN TREE TQP&
Another Instance of Man Trying to Improve on Nature.
A curious and interesting instanoo of
animals ohanglng their habits owing to
the altered circumstances of tbelr surroundings, or, aB Darwin called it, their
"adaptability to environment," oame
under the writer's notice a short time
ago on tbe Island of Jamaica. While
traveling through the northern part of
that island he passed grove after grove
of cocoa-nut palms. All tbe trees five
years old and upwards, that ia, the fruit-
bearing trees, were tin-girdled around
their trunks. For five feet above the
ground eaoh treo was incased in a plate
of tin nailed firmly.
The explanation Ib a strange one. For
many years the sugar-planters in Jamaica were cursed with the ravages of rats.
These rodents would invade tbe fields
just when the cane was getting ripe for
cutting. Each rat would select some
choice cane and begin to nibble at its
base, gradually gnawing deeper and
deeper into it until it toppled over. The
crash of the falling cane frightened the
rat, who, scampering off, soon began at
another one. These pests did enormous
damage and no small item in tho sugar-
planters' yearly bill was the one for the
rat-catcher.
Ten yoai'B ago Bancroft Espont, a
well-known planter on tho island, imported from India six couples of mongoose or ichneumon, the deadly onemy
of snakes and rats. The mongoose increased and multiplied in an inorediblo
manner and thcou-lvcs becamo a pest,
whioh every moans failed to destroy.
Tbo rats at first fell an easy prey to
their destroyers and were soon driven
out of tho fiolds and the stone-wall
fences that had formed their homes.
They swarmed into the houses and
towns, but were still followed by the
ichneumons. The full-grown rat by its
floetnosB did escape for a time, but the
mongoose easily scented out the nest ot
littlo ones and destroyed them, or,
forret-like, traced the rat to Its last
lair and killed it there. Tho rat, driven
from every refuge, took then to the palm
trees, and among the cluster ot fronds
that orown eaoh tree made Its home and
reared its family In safety.
At first it was hardly credited that the
rat had turned Into an arboreal rodent,
but It soon became a painful faot, for as
the fruit-bearing spike pushed its way
out, the rats would nibble it off and render the tree barren. The writer has
himself seen rats, disturbed by a negro
who had climbed a tree for the cocoa-
nuts, jump to tho ground fully fifty feet.
But nature has not endowed them with
tbe nine Uvea of a cat also, for the fall
certainly knocked all the wind out of
them, and they fell an easy prey to the
nearest dog or man. Owing to this new,
development in the habits of the Jamaica rat, tbo planter has been obliged
to tin-line bis cocoa-nut trees.
In tbe meantime the mongoose has
turned his attention to the farm-yard,
and whereas a few years ago fowls were
tbo cheapest and commonest food, now
they can be enjoyed only by the well-to-
do. It is another instanoo of man trying to improve on nature. Not long
ago there was good guinea-bird, quail
anu partridgo snooting to be had on the
island, but as these birds build on the
ground, not one is to he found now, for
if there is any thing a mongoose likes it
is to suok an egg, and he does it so artistically, making tbe smallest of holes,
tbat tho mother-bird still sits on, in
vain hopes of hatching her brood.—N.

ADULTERATED  CANDY.
The Alarming Use ol Terra Alba ln Itt
Manufacture.
The Board of Trade Journal, of Portland, Me., ls authority for the statement that about 0,000 tons of terra alba
wero reoently imported through the
port of New York alone. The only uso
for terra alba in any quantity lu in tho
adulteration of candles, and when theso
two facts are put together they become
vory significant. Tho substanco is mineral, utterly insoluble In tho saliva or
tho gastric juice, and the result of eating
candies adulterated can not be otherwise than excessively Injurious. Tho
dovillshness of tho uso of such stuff in
candies is all tho greater for the faot
that most of tho candles that are adulterated with it are usod by children of
tondor years. Tho extent to which lt
exists In certain candies may bo surmised by an incldont whioh ocourred
within the experience of the editor of
tbe National Druggist. A wholesale
grocery houso of St. Louis mode a
claim against tbe South Shoro line for
damages dono a certain .lot of lozenges
manufactured by a Boston house and
shipped in barrels over that lino. The
general agent of the lino procured somo
of thoso "lozongos" and brought tbem
to the writer for examination. The result of our Investigation showed tbem
to consist entirely of terra alba bound
together with a little gelatine or gum
(we have forgotten wbloh). Further investigation developed that thoy were
simply blocks or forms to bo usod in
preparing cheap lozenges, the method
of use being simply to immerso them
for a few moments ln sirups flavored
with peppermint, winter-green, etc The
agent, armed with these faots, refused
to pay any damages, and the concern,
rather than risk the exposure incident
upon a lawsuit, dropped the claim.—

Adventure In a Foroit,
On Littlo rlvor, near Osceola, La.,
Robert Warren, a lumberman, lost his
way in tho woods. He thought ho heard
a human voico, and hallooed to attract
attontion. His shout was answered, and
the cries oamo nearer aud nearer. Thon
he discovered that it was a panther that bud been yelling. Being unarmed ho climbed a treo and remained
in it for an hour. Tho panthor finally
loft. When bo thought tho coast was
oloar Warron descended and pursued
his way, and when ho again hallooed to
attract attention the panther returned,
this time accompanied by his mate. Up
a sapling he again wont, armed with a
stout olub and determined to sell his
life as dearly as possible, In thu meantime the boys in camp had become
alarmed at his absence and started out
to search for him. Thoy had reached a
point .within a quarter of a milo of
whore he was treed when they caught
the sound of his oall for holp, and, as an
answering signal, fired off a gun, which
had the effect of frightening off the
panthers.—Chicago Herald.

Price* Btill Rising.
Tho sale of real estate at the Auction
mart on Saturday night was the most
notable that has ever been held in the
history of Westminster. Prices went
hk'her than ever before, especially in
suburban property. Lot 14, subdivision
of lot 18, block 13, suburban, sold for
$240, and a number of other lots in the
same block sold for about the same
price. These are good prices when it is
considered tliat a year ago the lots
would not have brought over $100. A
large number of G-acre blocks in the vicinity of Burnaby Lake sold at prices
ranging from (105 to $135 per acre, again
a wonderful increase in value, $30 per
acre being considered a good price for
thiB land a yenr ago. The next sale is
expected to realize even better things.

Corniah ranks with the bost In Oanada,

Walker being the complainant and J. A.
Macdonald the defendant. It is alleged
that Macdonald haa been in the habit
of paying visits to Walker's houae,
much against the latter's wishes as he
was not wanted, and hia calls were looked upon bb impertinent intrusion. He
had been aBked to stay away, but paid
no attention to the request, and a few
days ago called at Walker's house.
Walker went to the doer and told Macdonald that he was not wanted, whereupon the latter struck Walker with his
clenched flat and forced a way into the
bouse and remained until he chose to
leave. In consequence of thiB assault
and forced entry the charge waa laid,
and the hearing of the case ia expected
to bring to light aome interesting facts.

Church Parade.
The annual church parade of No. 1
Battery B. C. B. G. A. and the New
Westminster Rifles took place yeaterday
morning to Holy Trinity Church. The
parade waa formed at the Drill Shed and
under command of Capt. Scoullar marched by way ot McKenzie, Columbia and
Church streets to Holy Trinity. The
turnout was fairly good, the Artillery
making the beBt showing in thia direction, and both corps looked exceedingly
smart and soldierlike, and marched ana
wheeled very steadily and accurately.
Ab was to be expected every seat in the
church was occupied, and the wardens
with difficulty found room for all who
attended. The militia were seated in
the two centre rows, and occupied aome
eight pews. The service which was very
imposing aud interesting throughout,
was conducted by His Lordship Biahop
Sillitoe, assisted by Rev. H. Irwin. Tbe
Biahop preached the sermon taking for
his aubject II Timothy, 2nd chapter and
3rd and4th verses: "Thou therefore
endure hardness as a good aoldier of
Jeans Christ. No man that warreth en-
tangleth himself with tbo affairs of thia
life; that he man please him who hath
chosen him to be a soldier." From thia
text Hia Lordship preached one of the
most excellent and eloquent sermons
that has ever been heard at Holy Trinity.
Ilia hearers listened with wrapt utten*
tion to every word uttered.
At the conclusion of tho service tbe
parade re-formed and marched back to
the Drill Shed, where it wus dismissed
nfter a ahort address from Cunt. Scoullar, thanking the men for their attendance and soldierlike behaviour,
ASHCROFT NOTES.
{From   Our Own Correspondent.)
Asiickoi't, March 1.—Tbe weather
during tbe past week hna been very
severe, but ia now gradually turning
milder, uml if indications are not as
predictions have been during the past
lew weeka, it iB safe to say winter la almoit gone.
At Clinton it has beeu unusually
severe, the thermometer dropping as low
aa 40 degrees below zero, while Soda
Creek has shown Btill greater cold than
this, it having been as low as 42 and 43
degrees below. These places, however,
have the benefit of no wind with tbe
cold weather, while here calm weather
is the exception rather than the rule,
the wind blowing almost continually and
as a consequence the cold is more keenly
felt.
Notwithstanding the severity of the
season, teaming to Lillooet and upper
country points continues, teams leaving
almost daily for the former place, while
several have loaded and gone out for 150
Mile Poat and Soda Creek during the
week, in addition to a snecial stage for
the 108 Mile Post.
As spring opens it ia expected the
Cariboo country will offer fully as good a
field for the prospector aud gold seeker
as In yeara gone by, the report from thnt
aection being thai the prospects for a
paying aeaaon are better than for a
number of years past. The Vancouver
Enterprise Mining Co. are pushing work
on their Lillooet claim. Several men
have gone up to work within the last
two weeks, With these indications it is
safe to say Ashcroft will uot be behind
tite times in town enterprise, and great
improvements may be expected before
another winter Bhall bave settled down
upon the Golden Gate of Cariboo.
On Friday, just before noon, a number
of our prominent citizens were thrown
into a state of great excitement by the
appearance on the hill above the towu
of a black bear, and a hunt was immediately organized, the major mustering
out the forces. Captain B— being first In
command. He lea the attacking party
for a ahort time, when he waa deprived
of hia commission for the insufficient
equipment of Ida forces, and
Lieutenant James Armstrong wob promoted to the rank of captain. Tho new
captain immediately ordered hia com-
8any to charge up the Iilll and attack
train on the right flank. In vain that
gallant few strove to scale the icy hill,
and It waa with tiiiking hearts they
returned to report non-success in tlie
flank movement. Bruin then revived
their falling valor by descending the hill
of Ida own accord (It wob afterwards
ascertained a Chinaman had mado a
flank movement on him with a rope),
and, aa he neared the party, armed aa
they were, the major with a ten-mile
range glass, Captan Armstrong with his
irrepressible "wind" gauge gun, Ex-
Captain B— with a shotgun charged with
No. 10 ahot, and the company with an
empty Winchester rifle, it was a clear
case that Bruin must either "root hog
or die." But auch wai not to be. The
entire force now secreted themselves behind a telegraph pole and wailed Bruin _
approach. Alas for human hopes, for
whon the bravest dared peer from the
sheltering post, Bruin was struggling In
tbe hands of six stalwart Celestials, ami
by hia plaintive and piggish cries,
caused the party to disperse aud Bcek
hunie by secluded paths, Wheu next
you go on a bear hunt, before starling
eat your dinner, and be satisfied thon It
Ib not for "pork you pine,"

SEW RAILWAY AND STEAMSHIP COMPANY.
Ottawa, Feb. 22.—Mr. Bryaon'a bill
entitled "An Act to incorporate the
North Canadian Atlantic Railway and
Steamahip Company" haa received its
aecond reading. Those seeking incorporation are Sir Henry A. Isaac, Lord
Mayor of London; Sir Robert N. Fowler,
M.P., banker; Thos. Wood, merchant
and chairman Milford docks; Chaa. G.
Mott, director Great Western Railway
Compnny, Stunemore, Middlesex; William R. fiulch, banker, Bartholomew

The company may lay out, construct
aud operate a railway bridge with the
necessary approaches, from a point on
their said line between the city of Quebec and tbe Island of Orleans to the said

run steamships for carrying freight and
passengers to and from any port with
which their line of railway connects, to
and from any port in the United Kingdom.
The capital stock of the company ia to
be $20,000,000.
SUNDRY INTERESTING DISOUSHIOnS.
On Monday the question re tbe letters
of the member for Lincoln came up and
quite a spicy discussion arose. Then
the following bills received their third
reading: "The Port Arthur, Duluth &
Western Railway Company," "The
Sauit Ste Marie & Hudson's Bay Railway Company." The Behring sea fisheries next received attention, and waB
followed by a continuation of the discussion of the French language in the
North-West ' Territoriea. Hon. Mr.
Laurier was the flrat speaker. He said:
"I can find nothing in this bill, I must
aay, but the old, old spirit of domination
and intolerance which, in thiB land, nnd
in other lands, has characterized the
course of pure, unadulterated Tory'.m.
It is a declaration of war against the
French race of this country." Sir John
A. Macdonald, said: "I have no accord
with the desire expressed in aome quarters that, by any mode whatever, there
tawa, ia delivering a course of lectures
on "Elocution" at the University of Ottawa. Dr. O'Hagan has alao become
connected with tlie editorial staff of
United Canada, and is well known as a
powerful writer. He has won golden
opinions from many eminent men of letters, amongst whom are Oliver Wendell
Holmes, Boaton; Hon. G. W. Ross,
Minister of Education; Rev. J. J. Car-
bery, late biBhop of Hamilton and J. G.
Bourinot, LL. D., Houae of Commons.
Mr. Kenny, M. P. for Halifax, and
Lieut.-Gen. Laurie, M. P. for Shelburne,
took their seats in the House of Commons, yesterday, for tho flrat time thia
The Citizen of to-day aays: "While
Mr. Cook waa speaking last night he
was the recipient of numerous notes.
Finally a large envelope was handed
him. He opeued it, nnd, to his utter
consternation, it was found to contain a
daub of a valentine. The incident completely knocked the humorous orator
out; for he immediately collapsed, his
current of thought having been disarranged. It was an inglorious ending of
a highly amusing Bpeech,"
This is surely elevating and educating,
to make fun of a representative of the
people while making a speech in any
one of our legislatiue halls must be the
work of a narrow brained decrepit individual, or individuals. Mr. Cook had
just aa much right to speak us any of
the other members assembled, and
ahould be treated with just us much respect. It ia only the uncultivated und
misguided element that would decide to
the contrary.

should be an attempt- made to oppress
the one language or to render it inferior
tothe other." Mr. Cockburn followed,
then Mr. Sproule, Mr. Wright, Mr.
Landry, Mr. weldon (Albert), and Mr.
Dessaiute, who spoke in Fronch.
On Tuesday the letters of the member
for Lincoln again received attention,
Messrs. Bowell. Laurier, Cartwright,
Sir John Macdonald, Mr. Mills, and
others taking part in the discussion, all
agreeing that Mr. Rykert's language in
those letters was strange and suspicious.
Mr. Chariton brought up the question
of the "alleged capture of a white girl
by Indians," and wanted lo know if
the Minister of the Interior had received
any information nsto the white girl held
captive bythe Blackfeet Indiana. Mr.
Dewdney said that "upon enquiry mnde,
and from Information obtained from the
Indians on the reserve where the white
giri ia supposed to be, it appears that
the child ia tiie daughter of the woman
with whom Bhe is now living."
Hon. Mr. Chapleau then commenced
u continuation of the debute on the dual
lnnguage queation. He suid: "Let ub
iiope that those iiitlummable elements,
suspicions, prejudices, nnd rivalry will
ull be consumed and nothing will be
left but the fine, solid, sterling gold of
our young confederation, more solid uud
brighter than ever, inviting the admiration of the world as It Invites the covet.-
oub oye of our powerful neighbor. I
cnll this measure of tho member for
North Simcoe a revolutionary measure,
and a demagogic measure. The French
Canadians can lay claim to the title of
being the flrst settlers of that country,
aud there is some title iu that. .Leave
to (lie people of the Northwest themselves the decision of the question of
language in the Northwest. Leave the
question to the people to settle, and you
may be sure that probably iu two yeara
hence there will be nothing left of the
little fire wliich has been raised by the
hon. member for Nortii Simcoe."
Sir Richard Cartwright was the next
speaker, and wns followed by Mr. McCarthy, who made a noble defence of
the position he had taken. The House
then divided on Mr. Beauaolell'aamendment to thu amendment, with the following result: Yeas, 03; naya, 117.
Messrs. Barnard, Eurle, Gordon, Mara,
and Prior voted in the negative.

at Eton and served for some years as an
oflicer in the Rifle Brigade. Latterly he

hoth as a aettler and na a representative In the Legislature,
The public uccouuta committee met
yesterday In the railway room of the
House. The question of expenditure at
Rideau Hull and the Items of repairs

view of thu "enormousexpenditure" an*
luinlly incurred at the hall the inventory taken when Lord Lansdowne left be
submitted and thnt the officer in charge
of works at the hall be brought before
the committee and examined. This,
Mr. Davies Baid was a very delicate subject but the feeling throughout the country waB that there waa a great deal of
unnecessary expense at the hall and
that It was time the mattor was fully investigated.   This wbb agreed to.
