which shows him to bo as able with his
pen as with his sword. Gen. Ruger,

the matter, refused to talk about it. Ho
said it was a matter for the secretary to
settle; and that all statements and explanations must como from him, as lie
(Ruger) could not and would not talk
about it. To the question "Do you
know anything against Gloster?" ho replied "I canngt (ell you."

(from Our Own'VdrrestfoysKnt). ■
Wictoila, Feb. 14.-—Yesterday as the
steamer foi the Sound was on the eve of
departure a sergeant of police stepped
aboard and arrested a young gentleman
among the passengers on a warrant
chargiug him with having obtained
monoy undor false • pretences. At the
police court the young man gave his
name as E. Levy, and asked that the
cas3 be remanded until next day, that
lie might have time to employ .legal
service. The remand wus granted.
Levy came here a few weeks ago and
plunged at once into dissipation, whereby his money was quickly exhausted,
lo replenish his depleted pocket-book
ho foiged two checks for small amounts
and on their being dishonored at the
bank lie was dropped upon by the police
just in tho nick of time to prevent his
escape.
Mr. Martin, M. P.P., arreBted a burglar in the bouse of his host, Mr. Pre-
voBt, on James Bay, early yesterday
morning under circumstances of a very
sensational description. Mr. Martin
was awakoned by Mr. Prevost who had
heard sounds of a suspicious character
issuing from the kitchen. The two gentlemen descended to that apartment and
Mi', Martin saw a man's hand protruding from behind the meat safe; and a
revolver having been procured he ordered
the burglar, in the very best road agentB
style to throw up his hands, or be blown
into the middle of next week. The
burglarious visitor remarked very truly
that he'd be blowed if he would, but
elevated his manual extremities with all
celerity. At the police station he gave
his name as George Anderson. Besides
a derringer pistol, two formidable looking butcher kniveB and a screw driver
were found upon ids peraon. He asked
that the case be remanded a day and
this was granted.
Thu long discussion in committee yesterday in the House on the "Municipalities Amendment Act Bill" waB enlivened by many humorous sallies from both
sides of the House; and a good many
dry jokes served to brighten up the proceedings wonderfully. The local option-
ists scored a decisive victory during the
debate.
The House of Assembly is cold in the
extreme, and a gentle draught occasionally plays sweet airs on the backs of the
necks ot tho press, whose teeth chatter
accompaniments to the "Crick in the
neck Mazurka" or the "Polka Rheuma*
tique," all the afternoon.
Victoria', Feb. 15.—G. C. Anderson

yesterday was discharged on account of
a slight mistake in tho indictment. He
should have been charged with carrying
a concealed weapon hut no application
to keep the peace being made, the prisoner went scot free.

A GREAT CALAMITY.
Victorin vs. JNiuiiilmo Mulrli.
The dispute arising out of tho above
match wliich took place at Beacon Hill,
Victoria, on the 8th inst., aud has been
submitted for BOttleinon't by both particB
to the 13. C. Rugby Union, neema to bo
as follows: Tho umpires and referee
were duly appointed, und a. rather unpleasant game culminated in the usual
cur, a disputed try.
A Nanaimo player, whilst attempting
to run iii with the ball/was tackled by
an opponent who claiuuil the b ill Ivjla,
Tho Victoria umpire; who was nt tho
other sido of the Held, did not seo tho
play. The ball was not immediately
put down, but after changing hands was
grounded ovor Vieto'ia'a goal line, and a
try claimed. Thus far both accounts
agree.
The ViotoriaB cliiins that when tho
opponent was eoHarul, the Nanaimo
umpire held up his s.ii'lc,and the referee
blew hia whistlo j that tho Nanaimo
piayor took no notice of tha whistlt, and
eventually put tlio Will down several
rc!s away.  Victoria then appealed to
proofs of the crime backed down some- have the ball brought baok,'iwiO lho re-
what and made a partial conicss.cn. He furee plluv.ed thu nppeal, and ordered
denied ho did the killing and Implicated - tho ball back; but in tiu meanwhile, it
"Dr." Blood a id ono Ruaael, the Bo> had been cir.Ld over the goal line, • Ho
ton criminal suspected oi complicity in
tho Keene jewelry store robbery on
Washington street. Iflanc also maintained ho didn't know whore the head
was and ho would, if he Could,, give the
officers aid in finding it. Captain White,
after hearing bffleor Shield's report, expressed the belief that Bawtelle was lying, and that though tho prisoner wae
aided in committing tho crime, ho did
tho deed. Blood's picture has beeu
shown to many poopio in Rochester, but
no one recognizes the man as ever having been there, whero strangers would
be quickly recognized.
Tub Columbian job department is
now in running ordor, and prepared lo
turn out Brat-class work of every description. ' *
states further that Nan'abnd would not
consent to liavo the ball b/onght back,
ami that in order to avoid having lho
game abruptlystoppod, Victoria allowed
a try at'goal under p otcst,
Tho Nanaimo appeal states their umpire denlea having held up his stick;
that the referee claims to liavo blown
hia whistle, and that he claims a right
to do so, even when the umpires do not
appeal to him.
The committee of tha union will meet
aL Haslinvs ou tho 8l!hd iunt., by which
timo it. is hoped, the nports ot tho
referee and two umpires will have been
received. There is eveiy prospect of a
satisfactory suttlcincnl.

by Fire Ln*t Night.
Toronto, Feb. 15.—The University of
Toronto was totally destroyed by fire laat
night. The loss Ib is estimated at over
half a million dollars. Preparations had
been mnde for the annual converszaione
at which 200 people were expeoted to bo
present, aud it was juat before the guests
commenced to Sarrive at 7 o'clock that
the iirc broke out. The building was
not (supplied with enough gas jets, so
that on any special occaaion it was necessary to llgut up with lamps. Two men
were engaged in carrying up the stairs ou
a rack half a dozen lighted lamps to be
put in the chandeliers, when the man
on tho lower end became frightened that
they might fall and instantly let go his
hold and tho lighted lamps fell and
broke, the oil spilling, all over the stairs
and down into the already heavily oiled
floor. All the buildings were destroyed,
the library worth a hundred thousand
dollarB, the museum, with ita valuable
specimens and the valuable documents
ol Sir Daniel Wilaon, president of the
University; the chemical apparatus, instruments, furniture and pictures were
alt destroyed, One domestic waB severely, but not fatally, burned in the
fire.
Tho property, including all thelbuild-
ings and contents, was insured in 12
companies to tho extent of ♦1(14,000.
Tho following are the names of the
companies: ifttna, Citizens, City Mutual, Fire Insuranco Exchange, Hand-
In-Hand, American, Hartford, County
of Perth Mutual, Quebec Fire Assurance
Co., Queen City, Hoyal Insurance,
Royal Canadian A Western. There
were very few gas jota in the university
building, and in order to light the various halls and corridors effectually 400
con I oil lamps were used. They doubtless
contributed in no small dogreo
to tlio rapid spread of tho fire. The fire
appliances were unserviceable. There
was no alarm in tho building, and the
nearest fire hydrant was 1,000 feet from
thu buiUlings. A -striking feature of tho
iirc waa tho falling of the 8J000 pound
boll in tho main tower of the university.
When lhe dome in which it stood had
burned away, lho great bell fell, crashing through tho huge Btone tower, the
grea t tongue sounding as it foil the death
knoll of lho flnest university building in
the country. The university was built
in 18(30. Sir Daniel Wilson, president
of tho university, in almost heart broken,
lie was carried from tbo university
grounds physically Incapable.

FAIR REPRESENTATION.
The first general meeting of the Central Executive of the Mainland Association, which will be held in the City
Hall to-night. Ib a convention of more
than ordinary importance, and will inaugurate, at least, more than ordinarily
important work. Delegates will be present from our sister city of Vancouver
and from every municipality and settlement in the banner district of the Province. Centered aB it iB hi the Mainland
twin cities and having Hs branches in
every part of the flourishing District
of New Westminster, the scope of the
Mainland Association will not necessarily
be confined to theae, although itB first
and chief concern undoubtedly should
and will be to look after the interests in
the matter of representation of the two
cities and that large and important section of the Province directly represented
In the Association. In pursuance ot this
object the question of redistribution in
its widest sense will, of course, come up
and demand quite an exhaustive discus*
sion; for it is obvious that the rights,
and even to a certain extent the sentiments, of every section of the Province
must be considered and respected by
each other section or district, in this redistribution matter.
While the question of redistribution
at this time is one naturally affecting
the Province as a whole, it must be said
that the island section is uot nearly so
directly interested as the mainland, and,
by reason of a perfectly natural chain of
circumstances, no section of the mainland is eo nearly concerned in the issue
as the District of New WeBtmlnster, embracing the city of that name and its
lusty twin sister on Burrard Inlet, and,
to focalize the matter, the prime necessity and demand for a readjustment of
the representation at this time, concentres right upon the "phenomenal city,"
which at the time of last general election had no existence save iu embryo,
and but a handful of votes, that, very
properly, were shaken down into the
district ballot-box. But now, it is unnecessary to asseverate, the case is very
different—and if Vancouvor City were
stricken dumb, if its very excellent
journals should choke todeath over each
others gore and scalp-locks, and had the
Mainland Association perished still-born
(instead of developing satisfactorily and
forcefully as it has done), the very stones
of the Parliament buildings at James
Bay would cry out for that measure of
representation to which Vancouver iB
fairly entitled as the present second city
of the Province, and, falling satisfaction,
would hurl themselves at tho obdurate
"balance of power" within the walls.
The claims of this city to increased
representation, taking Victoria city,
with its four members as a standard, are
no less obvious and crying than are
those of its sister citv to receive its
quota of representation as a separate
electorate. And WestminBter District,
even with the elision of Vancouver City,
will hardly be adequately represented
with its three members, when its marvellous progress of the last three or four
years is considered, together with the
certain prospect of Btill more rapid
growth in population and wealth in the
immediate future, and its representation is compared with that of other districts of the Province. Kootenay District, on the mainland, is another, and
perhaps the only other district which,
it Ib generally conceded, should, by
reason of its large extent, great
natural resources, and rapidly growing
importance, be given another member-
it has now only one—and Kootenay's
claims certainly should not and must
not be overlooked. On Vancouver Island, as the News has already pointed
out, Alberni, a comparatively small district that haB come into existence since
- the present basis of representation was
settled, is the only reasonable claimant
tor increased representation, or rather
separate representation, that the Island
affords, and might fairly be given one
representative. In all othor respects
the several Island constituencies may
be considered as very well off in the
matter of representation, comparatively
and literally.
The Vancouver News, in a well considered article the othor day, suggested
that the extra member to which Kootenay is fairly entitled should be taken
from Cariboo, which has three. This Is
a matter of detail.of course, but the suggestion is not unreasonable. In the same
article the News made the modest, but
at the same time, under all the circumstances, almost obvious, suggestion that
Vancouver City should be accorded
three members, Westminster City an additional member, or a total of two, and
that the District could probably struggle
along for while with its three members. We have Bald that the suggestion
was modest and almost obvious, and we
are inclined to to endorse it as a whole.
Certainly, less could not be asked, and,
under all the circumstances, more, perhaps, should not bo.
By carrying out the redistribution in
this way, five additional momberswill
be added to the present House ot twenty-
seven, making a total of thirty-two for
the Province. This is rather large, but
for the present a more radical and scientific measure of redistribution would be
very difficult to formulate and carry
through. Some time aftor the decennial
census of this year has been completed,
a more thorough measure, based on
population, will be much easier get-at-
able. We imagine that tho Government measure, which has not yet been
brought down, will be based to somo
extent on these considerations. At any
rate, the Mainland Association can express itself as It thinks fit on the subject,
and its representations will not be
without considerable weight.
Women's Rights still|continues to be a
much debated subject throughout the
civilized world, with varying issues.   It
is one of those questions that will not
down, but persistently stares the legislator, and the political and social economist in the face and demands a fair and
juat solution.   But those who honestly
seek such a settlement find the problem
by no means a simple one, and the
women themselves are far from being a
unit us to the desirability of acquiring
and practising certain new privileges
and public functions hitherto monopolized by the " lords of creation."   Whatever inalienable rights women may or
may not have, howevor, and whatever
new privileges or prerogatives it may be
desirable, and advisable, in'their own
interests and in the interests of society,
to invest them with, it would seem, on
the most natural and proper grounds,
that thiB much at least must be accorded,
that women must be as nearly us possible enfranchised in the matter of protecting their own homes; and in the
line of such enfranchisement was the
amendment which the Premier introduced into tho Municipality Bill in tho
Local Houbo, the other day.   Says the
Colonist of Friday on this subject: "The
Premier scored one yesterday in committee of the whole on Mr, Beaven's
Municipal Bill.   In dealing with tho
section which provides that, in a city
two-thirds of tlie lot owners and resident householders must petition for a
liquor license before it can be issued.
Mr.  Hobson  managed  to havo the
words ' and their wives'   inserted,
thereby giving women an equal voice
with mon in tho matter. One member
objected, remarking; ' If you do tbat,
no new licenses  will be issued,' to
which the Premier replied: ' So much
the bettor/    As the author of the
amendment truly Baid, the matter Ib
one which concerns women aB much
aB men, and they should have an equal
voice in determining whether a house
in their neighborhood shall, or ahall
not, be licensed to Bell intoxicating
liquor.   They have that power already
in rural districts.   Why should they
' not have it in cities?  Wo consider
1 this an Important step in temperance
1 reform, and it is to be hoped that the
1 women will not be Blow to make good
' use of their newly acquired power."
A WEST INDIAN EXHIBITION.
Jamaica is to hold an exhibition of
native products next year, to begin January 27th, notes the Monetary times.
The regulations under which the display is made will, it is believed, permit
of the other colonics participating hy
making exhibits. Sugar, rum, liquors,
cordials, coffee, orangeB, pineapples, and
other fruits, pimento, spices, condiments, woods in various states of preparation, fibres and fibrous materials,
chinca bark, oils, essential oils, perfumes, medicinal and economical substances, will all be found on view. To
these will be added worka nf art, pic*
tureB, fancy and ornamental articles.
Nor will the botany and geology of the
island be forgotted; both will be fully
illustrated. Copies of tho regulations
will be forwarded by Lord K.untBford.
Colonial Secretary, to Canada and other
colonies for their guidance. No doubt
Canadian visitors will be able to learn
something which they'do not know of
Jamaica products, and itis certain that
we can in return ahow the islanders
something which wo produce and of
which they have as littlo knowledge.
Time was when Jamaica rum was used
everywhere in Canada, but it has beon
superseded hy native whiskey, remarks
the Monetary Times, and adds: If a revival of this traffic is impossible, some
new lines may present themselves to
observing visitors which might not be
thought of in the absence of ocular demonstration. What will Canada do in
the premises?
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Work on the Grand Trunk tunnel under the Detroit river at Port Huron is
being steadily pushed forward nt both
ends. The total length of tho bore will
be 6,800 feet, 2,310 feet under water, 2,-
160 in the approach on the Canadian
side, and 2,330 in that on the Michigan
side. About 1,600 feet ia so far completed, and the work is progressing at the
rate of eighteen feet a day. Canada's
river boundaries have been the cause of
the construction of several notable engineering works, such as the magnificent
bridges at Montreal and Niagara, but
this is the flrst attempt to make a passage for traflic under instead of over
them.
A movement is on foot in Austria and
Hungary just now to do away with the
form of salutation customary among
mon—that of taking off the hat. At
Graz a committee has been formed
which passed a resolution and called
upon the civil and military governors,
Baron Kuebec and Count Wurmbraud,
as also on the mayor of the city, hogging
them to sanction the resolution by accepting the military salute from their
inferiors.   Tho three gontlomon gladly
gavu th«ir eoutumt.   Tho u-iaU '-nr nlfir
been expressed that tho dangerous custom of uncovering the head for a longth
of time at funerals Bhould he done away
with. It is pointed out that the military
salute must necessarily imply at least as
muoh respect as lifting the hat, since a
common soldier thus salutes the highest
commander in the army. Iu the middle ages the hat or cap was uot doffed.
The Calgary Tribune maintains that
the Northwest Territories, as at present
constituted, are too large to have their
affairs administered from any point by,
one system of government, whether that
system be tho presont one or that of re-
sponible Government. It suggests thut
Saskatchewan be wiped out, and the
country divided into two Territories by
a line running north and south and intersecting the Canadian Pacific at Swift
Current. For each of these divisions it
would have a capital, and u Lieutenant-
Governor and un Assembly. The Battleford Herald points out in reply thut tho
interests of'the north and south are so divergent that if any sueh new division
were mode it would be better to constitute the railway the line of separation.
It does not believe the scheme, however,
to be either practicable or politic, and
wisely suggests the continuation of the
present Territorial Government, with
suoh modifications ob may be nocossary,
until the various districts aro each in
turn sufficiently strong to become provinces.
Just now Serpa Pinto iB the idol of the
Portuguese, and it iB Baid he is about to
leave the array to enter politics. Cheaper popularity waa never won, for Pinto,
brave man and graphic writer as he Ib,
was never intended by nature to be un
African explorer. His trips across Africa made a thrilling Btory, far more thrilling than it would have been if he had
possessed sufficient tact and good judgment to win the loyalty of hiB followers
and the friendship of the natives. He
lost his fine equipment in mid Africa,
and owes his life to ahappy meeting with
a missionary. Since then Arnot has
gone over the same road without firing
a shot, wliich illustrates the difference
between the man who knows how to get
along in Africa and one who does not,
Then the Portuguese gave Pinto another
splendid outfit and lauded him in East
Africa. His attempt to explore East
Nyassaland wus a record of disaster, and
the expedition would have been a complete fiasco if Cardozo hadn't taken the
remnant of it and done a little exploring,
Serpa Pinto came dangerously near being a failure iu Africa until he was sent
up the Shire, killed a few Makololo,
hauled down a lot of British flags, and
suddenly became a great man in theoyea
of the people at home.—N, Y, Sun.
A number of Battleford settlers, who
say they were treated shabbily by the
Rebellion Losses Commission appointed
to deal with claims arising out of the insurrection of 1885, have forwarded a petition to the House of Commons praying
that justice may be done. They appear
to be angry with the government, and
bring a serious charge againBt General
Middleton, to which no doubt he will
make a satisfactory answer. The
French half-breeds in tho North-west
are also excited, and L'Elendard and
other clerical journals publish frequent
complaints from the Roman Catholic
missionaries. It is difficult to ascertain
what their grievances are. In some
places they complain of the government
officials; in others they talk vaguely
about thoir rights being withheld from
them.
Mr. Wallace has introduced a bill
which already has received its second
reading, entitled "An Act respecting the
Manitoba and North-Western Railway
Company of Canada." It Bays: "The
company shall complete during the calender year one thousand eight hundred
and ninety, tho seventeen miles of railway to the west of Saltcoats, in the territory ot Assinlboia, partially constructed by it during the year one thousand
eight hundred and eighty-nine; and, in
addition, the company shall complete
not less than twenty miles of its railway, as described by the Acta relating
to the Company, during the year one
thousand eight hundred and ninety-one,
and also during each calender year
thereafter, to tho satisfaction of the Governor-! n-Council ; otherwise the power
granted to the Company to extend its
lino of railway for any further distance
than the length of railway then completed Bhall ho forfeited."
The Upper Chamber iB in a dilemma
Buys the Mail. It is almost certaiu that
Senator Abbott, who Ib Government
leader in the House, will uot be in his
place again this session. It ia reported
that his physicians have ordered him, aB
soon na ho is well enough to do so, to
tako a sou voyage, or at leastftake complete reBt for thq restoration oV: his
health. This deprives the Senate of the
services of oue of the ablest men iu Parliament. But it docs more. It loaves it
like a ship without a rudder. Senator
Frank Smith iB Senator Abbott's lieutenant, but he has never given tho de
tails of legislation that amount of attention that would enable him to fill the
breach caused by hiB chief's absence,
Clearly the Govornment will havo to appoint somebody to assume this task, and
it is no light one. The elderly gentlemen
who compose our House of Lords require
very skilful management, and it calls for
special gifts to keep the ancient machine
oiled and In good running order. Senator Abbott filled the position admirably,
always having plenty of oil on hand, so
did Sir Alexander Campbell, but others
failed miserably, and during their reign
the House was a hoar garden.

AN  UNCONSCIOUS SPY.
How a Woman's Kindness Nearly Led to
Her Death.
During the late civil war Mrs, Wheeler,
the Eugene healer, served as a nurse in
the Union service. She had many thrilling experiences and among them the
Eugeno (Ore.) Journal has heard of the
following: She was present at the hattie
of Spottsylvania. At the commencement of the battle a Union offloer rode
up to her and handed her a package of
papers with the request that she Bhould
keep them safe until tho battle was over,
and then, if he (the oflicer) should not
live to call for thom, to deliver the
paekage at headquarters.
In the courso of the flght a flank was
turned and MrB, Wheolor and the rest of
the hospital nurses oaptured hy the
rebels. Upon searching her person of
course the papers were found and proved
to be the work of a Union spy, who had
been inside the rebel lines. She was at
once arraigned before a court-martial
composed of rebel officers, and notwithstanding her statement of how she oame
by the papers and repeated protestations
of innocence, she was formally convicted of boing a spy and sentenced to
be hanged at sunrise the next morning.
She was then taken by a guard of three
soldiers and confined in a small guard
house, which had but one small aperture
admitting light and air, and through
the aperture she saw the erection of the
gallows on whioh sho waB to perish..
What a grim perspective!
Inside the guard houso there was
nothing but the bare floor of earth and
two dry-goods boxes standing against a
wall; no chair, no bed.
That night one of tho guards entered
the guard house with a piece of corn
broad and a tin oup of water for her supper.
'    Mrs. Wheeler spoke.
The guard stopped.
He then retired and looked the door
upon her again. Later on in the night
ahe heard a voice at the aperture say:
''Move the small box!" She moved the
box and discovered an aperture, which
proved to bo a tunnel. Through this
tunnel she worked her way on her hands
and knees for about one-fourth of a mile,
whon Bhe emerged from its mouth and
found a man and two saddled horses
standing there.
Mrs. Wheolor mounted one horse, and
tho man, who was disguised, tho other
For six milos tbey rode on in darkness
without speaking, but at tho end of that
time the man spoko and said: "You are
now Bafo in the Union linos; ride on,"
and the man disappeared in the darkness like a shadow.
Mrs. Wheeler rode on until Bho came
across a picket, who took her to General
Hointzelman's headquarters.
Some time ago, while taking a little I
outing at Anderson's, on the McKonzio
river, Mrs. Whoeler and her preserver
met and recognized eaoh other after a
lapae of twenty-six years. Hor preBorv- |
er'sname is well known—Dr. B. F, Russell, now postmaster at Thurston. He
was one of the threo guards. Ho was
the disguised horseman.
THEY  HAD   MUCH   MONEY.
And Thay Oarried a llrlok tn st Sachet for
a DUud.
Two men walked rapidly down Wall
street yosterday aftornoon and entorcd
one of the prominent banking institutions, says the Philadelphia Press. They
wereBturdy, heavy-set men. One carried a small blaok saohel. Both kept
their oyes roaming from side to side. I
followed thom into the hank. Tho man
with tbe suohol sat down, dropping tlio
hag carelessly on the floor. Tho other
went into tho receiving teller's inclosuro,
reached down in bis breast pocket and
extracted a package of bills. Theso
wore hastily counted, and the two strangers left. Tho teller jammed the bills
into an envelope, sealed it and pitched
it into a safe, afterward closing the door
in a perfunctory manner. The entire
transaction occupied less than two minutes. Then the teller turned to me and
said:
"How muoh do you think was in that
package?"
"Why, about MOO.".
"Yob, and a little more. It contained
one million four hundred and forty-odd
thousand."
"You don't mean it!"
"Yes," he said, showing his memoranda. "You seo, It's noarly all in 810,-
000 bills. Thero is not great danger in
carrying notos of that denomination, beoause, exoept horo In New York, they
are bo seldom usod that suspicion would
at once bo direoted toward any one who
attempted to negotiate them."
One th Ing still puzzled me.
"What did the messenger have in his
saohel?"
"Nothing but a half brick. Tho
saohel is carried as a blind, to throw any
possible thief off the traok."
CONSIDERATE HUSBANDS.   .
A Brace of Men Who Consulted the Tasted
of Their Wives.
"You may name this boy, Mary," said
a man to his wife when their fifth ohild
was a few weeks old, "only you must
call htm John." Tbo father had had his
own way with the other four and it was
no more than fair that he Bhould consult
his wife's taste for onoe. It is pleasant
to see husbands thus considerate. Tho
Detroit Tribune records a similar instance. An elderly couplo entered a
dry-goods store on Woodword avonuo.
He was slim and tall and she was round
and short.
"My wifo and I have oome to do some
shopping," ho said to the olerk.
"Indeod?"
"Yes; my wife wants a new dress to
take home."
"Ah!"
"Just show her what you have. Let
her select whatever she wants."
"What lino of goods will you havo,
madam?" askod the olork.
"Oh, something In silk," answered
the husband for her.
Tho olork took down a roll of bright-
colored patterns.
"How doos that ploaso you, madam?"
he asked.
''No, that is too bright," said the husband.
"How do you like   this,  madam?"
asked the olerk, displaying anothor roll.
"No, "my wife doesn't liko that," ho
returned,   "It is too dark."
Again and again tho olerk displayed
hlswaroB before-thom, always appealing to tho taste of his wife and boing
answered by the husband.
"Well," said the latter at length, "1
guess this piece will do.   Wrap it up."
When they were on the street he remarked to his wife:
"That's a nice piece of goods you selected, Mary."
A look of quiet humor stole into the
old lady's eyes, but she merely answered
quietly as sbe glanced affectionately
into his faco:
"Do you think bo, John?"
The Force of Example*
People appear to think that, while
good manners should be strenuously exacted from children, precept In this connection may stand instead of example,
and tlmt orders may be given thom and remarks made upon thom as if they were devoid of natural feelings and perceptions.
As a mattor of fact, If. when people want
children to do something for them, they
would ask it in the same way In which
they would address an equal, if they
would thank thom for little services
rendered, spoak to them gently, answer
tholr reasonable questions civilly, and
avoid unnecessary comments upon tholr
appearance, they would have far less
trouble In teaching them to behave with
like consideration for others.
THE SAME MKS. DAY.*
How She Worried the Life Out Of
Poor Mr. Perkina
A Picture ot Country life Whleh Is Deal-
title Enough to Satisfy the Host Vw
tldlous Carper—Commercial Method* ln the Country Store*
People who contend that all thinga
have become new should, according to a
New York Sun man, take their stand in
front of the village store—the same village store of thirty years ago "where you
will find on sale a flno quality of N. O.
molasses and tho very best makes of
crowbars and calicoes." A woman drives
up in an old-fashioned buggy, after an
old-fasbioned Dobbin, Blips the bridle
off his head, ties him to impost with a-
ropo and then outers the store to Bay:
"Good morning, Mr. Porkins. What's
eggs and butter worth to-day?"
"Butter is down, you know."
"Pshaw!"
"Can't give but sixteen for butter and
fifteen for eggs."
"Sakes alivol but I'll take 'em home
flrst! Peddler offered me twenty for
buttor and eighteen for eggs only yesterday."
'Yes; but you had to take it in tinware, you know. I'm giving the going
price; might say half a oent moro on
the butter, being as you mado it."
Well, I B'pose I'll havo to take it;
but that's awful.   Bring it In."
Thore's nino pounds of butter and
olovon dozen eggs and she figures with
him to be sure It's right.
"Can't got ovor tho low prico on oggs,"
ito observes as tho Bum total agrees on
ti th sheets of paper. "Sure you didn't
moan eight-eon cents?"
I'm a little steep even at fifteen, beoause I know you want trade. What is
it to-day?"
"Qotbed-tioklng?"
"Yes."
"How much?"
"Thirty conts for the best."
"Thirty cents! It's amazing! Tgota
letter from my slBter down in Ohio yesterday, and she specially mentioned
that tbe very best ticking waa only
twenty-eight. We are thinking of moving down thoro."
Isn't that fine?" ho queried, as he
flung down a holt.
"Dunno. So many oheats nowadays
that you oan't bo suro of any thing. I
bought a tick of you sixteen yoars ago
como March, and it's giving away a-
ready.   Warrant the colors fast?"
"Oh, yes."
"Looks to mo as If tho feathers would
work through as soon as the Btaroh got
out."
. "I'll warrant it."
Sho wet a pieco with her tongue,
worked it vigorously botween her fin-
gors, and after holding it up to the light
remarked:
"I speo't I've got to chance It, You
may cut me off nino yards,"
"Ton is the rule, Mrs. Day."
"I don't koor, I can narrow lt in a
littlo. Nobody sleeping on a bed knows
whether thoro are nine or ten yards in
tho tick. I've got a pieco around tho
house any way, and I'll work it ln some-
hero.   You throw In tho thread, of
jurso?"
"I Buppose I'll have to. Anything
also?"
"I spoc't I'vo got to get a oalico dross
for Cousin Martha, who's living with us
now.""
"Ten yards?"
"Ton land-o'-daysl Seven ls a big
olonty for Martha. Sho's slim and poor
11id sho don't want to oarry any thing
ixtra around. Six and a balf mlghtdo."
"Why, Martha is as big as MrB. Perkins, and sho always takes ten."
"Thon she's extravagant. I'll say
'Ight, but I know I'll have a hunk of
loth left. Do you warrant this fast
olor?"
"I do."
"No starch?"
•'Just onough to glaze it."
"Aud you throw in the hooks and
oyes, buttons and a paper of needles."
"Oh, I couldn't do that."
"Mr. Porkins!" she continues-as she
■etroatsastop, "wo'vohoen trading with
/bu for twonty-two long yoars, and
ve've alius settled our bill the last of
.meh yoar."
"1 know it."
"And now you want to be stingy with
us! I guess I'll drivo on to Strongs-
ville."
"Well, I'll throw 'em in, but it takes
all tho profit off.   Any thing else?"
'Some nutmegs, I guess. Sell 'em two
for a cont now?"
"Good gracious, nol Nutmegs are five
cents apiece."
"I'll nevor pay it I'll wait until Mr.
Day is going down to Strongsvllle. I've
boon told they wore two for five there."'
"They cost that. However, I've got ft
broken one in tho jar, and I'll throw
that in.   Now, what else?"
'Nothing, I guess. I'vo got to run
around to Hannah Joy's to give her a
cure for rheumatism in the elbow, and
while I am gone you can emptymy orook
and baskot, put the parcels in the buggy,
and get the bridle on to old Jim. Weather
feels like a thunder-shower, and I guess
I'd better got home early."
AN ACTOR'S STORY*
How Selfishness Added to the Griping
Fangs of Hnngev.
"Talk about the ups and downs ot an
actor's life," remarked a veteran player
to a Chicago Tribune reporter the other
day. "Why, most actors live a life-time
In a single season. The swellest banquet I ever attended and the hardest-
got meal I secured both oame in the
same season. The banquet came early
in October, when the star celebrated
the anniversary of his debut as a star.
The latter came the following spring
whon we wero traveling on our trunks
from Washington, D. 0., to Louisville,
Ky. It was an all-day rido, and wo know
that we couldn't eat till we could show
again. Jamestown was tbe dinnor station, and the manager and I got to talking over the prospects for ohuck. I
confided to him that I had ten cents in
postage stamps; he Baid that he had a
nickel; so wo agreed to shake the rest
of the oompany and feast together. The
manager hid himself in the baggage-
room at the station and I went up-town
to a bakery, where I purohased a pie
with our oombined wealth, and returned
to my friend. The switchman's dinner-
pail hung tempting near by and we
opened it; but we hadn't the heart to
take more than a couple of pickles from
the poor fellow. It was a dainty meal
—pickles, pie and cako (stoma-obache).
The joke of the whole thing was that
the star, a smooth man, had meanwhile
arranged to feod the whole company
and glvo bis note for the'bill. Our
own selfish exclusiveness had shut us
out."

BRAVE MRS.  ALDRICH.
An Old Salt Tells of an Encounter with
Arab Pirates.
One season back in the 40'b I shipped
aboard of a British ship, the Swallow,
to make a voyage from Bombay up the .
Persian Oult and back, writes an old
seaman in the Boston Commercial Bulletin, She waB an old craft and a poor
sailer, and her crew of twelve men was
made up of four or five nationalities. I
remember there were two Kanakas, or
Sandwich Islanders, one Lascar, a negro
or two, and the others were American,
English and Dutch. Wo hod scarcely
leftBombay wbenHhe oaptain was taken
sick with fever. His name was Aldrich,
and his wife, who was a woman of thirty, always sailed with him. She now
took command in a general way, and
this to.; the satisfaction of the mates,
though both were thorough sailors. I
heard one of them say that she eould
take an observation or work a dead
reckoning, and I saw from ordera She
gavo that she knew all about a ship.
We had good weather and made good
progress until after we were above Muscat, in the Bay of Ormus, Then, one
forenoon we got a squall which did not
last ten minutes, but whioh brought
down our fore and main to'gallant masts
and carried away a sail or two. There
was only a light breeze after the squall
had passed, and we were lying to ahd
hard at work when an Arabian dhow of
about two hundred tons burden oame
steaming down the ooast. We were
within four miles of the rooky and
mountainous shore, but she was two
miles inside of us. She was no sooner
made out than tho first mate became
anxious, and Mrs. Aldrich was sent for
to como on deck. She took a good look
at the stranger through the glass, and
as she turned away sbe queried of the
mate:
"Can we depend on tbe orew to flght?"
"1 hope so, ma'am," he replied,
"Have thera come aft."
All moved aft, and I oan remember
through all the long years just how she
looked and evory word she said. She had
a worried, anxious look, and no wonder,
and there waa a trembling in her voice
as she said:
"Men, you know that your captain is
s!ck. Yonder comes a pirate if there ever
was one. If he captures us, those who
live through tho flght will go into the
Interior as slaves and worse. If we are
all agreed we can beat him oil. What
do you say?"
"We'll fight to the last!" shouted one,
and the ory was taken up by all.
"Thank God I" she fervently ex-
c'almod. "Glvo them a brave flght and
no one can bo blamed if we are defeated.
Sooner than fall Into their hands I will
blow tho old ship sky high and all of ub
with hor."
We had no cannon, but we had fifteen
muskets, a lot of cavalry sabers, and the
captain had not dodged about thoso waters with hts eyes shut. He had two or
threo years before purchased a dozen
hand-grenades or stink-pots, suoh as
aro used by the Chinese. Tbeso wore
brought up with the rest and found to
be fused and ln good condition. They
weighed about two pounds apiece, and
each was inclosed in a not, bo that it
could be tossed quito a distance. We
loaded our muskets, took our stations,
and wero as roady as we oould bo. The
captain's wifo alternated betwoen the
deok and tho cabin. He was out of
his head, which was tbe better for him,
and she had his revolver ready for use.
Down came tho dhow, foot by foot,
with nevor a cheer from tho crowd of
cut-throats on hor dooks. Tlioro was a
menace in thoir silence, but it had no
effect upon us. Wo wero determined to
fight, and to fight to the lust. 1 got the
first shot and knocked over u man in
hor forecastlo, and thon all began to'
blaze away. She did not flro in return,
but forged upon our quarter, and I could
seo fifty Arabs, each ono armed with a
oroase, crowding against tho rail to bo
roady to board.
"Now, heave," yelled ono of tho sailors with the bombs, and both lighted bho
fuses and heaved nway.
Bofore we oould toll what dimmgo had
beon dono tho dhow was alongside, Sho
throw her grapnels, but thoy did not
catch, and sho rubbed our wholo longth
and wont ahead. As we saw her failure
we blazed away again with the muskets,
and overy ball found a man. She sailed
like a witch, and bofore she oould be
checked waB a cable length ahead. She
had just put her helm ovor when there
was an explosion, followed by a great
sheet of flame, and we saw that sho was
hard hit. Confusion reignod from stem
to stern In a moment, and we added to
it by peppering away at fair range. All
ablazo within five minutes, she fell off,
headed for shore, and was run on a reef
about a milo away. We saw some savo
themselves by boats and rafts, being
swept upon tho shore by the tido, but it
was afterwards learned that upward of
forty-five men were killed or drowned,
and that the loss of tbo dhow broke upa
bod gang of pirates.
Mrs. Aldrich waa on deok through tt
all, emptying the revolver into the
crowd as the dhow passed us, and when
all was over Bhe went down to hor husband with a face only a little whiter
and a mouth mora firmly sot. She did
not betray her womanly weakness until
she oame to thank us. Then she broke
down and cried like a—well, Just like a
woman.

Mr. Jamei Shaw, a Lulu Island farmer,
was In the city to-day aud gave Tiik
Columbian a call. He sayH the farmers
expect to be ploughing within a week or
two, but seeding will not commence before April 1st, Cattle have wintered
well, and are in prime condition. During the cold snap, when the snow lay
thick on the ground, it waB necessary to
feed the cattle, but this did not last long
and the herds are out on pasture again.
Everything is prosperous on Lulu Island,
and general contentment reigns among
the farmers. Splendid crops are ex*
pected this year.
The Bridges) Committee.
The committee appointed to examine
Into and report ou the construction of
the North Arm bridges, returned to the
city laat night, nfter spending the afternoon in overlooking tlie structure and
examining into the damage done by the
ice, At the North Arm, Reeve Sexsmith
and the municipal council met the committee and pointed out the flaws and defects in construction. Several photo-
- graphs of the structures were taken.
The committee went over to Vancouver
this morning, where evidence concerning the accident, manner of construction
eto., was taken to-day. The committee
will probably conclude Its labors on
Monday.
Coals to Newcastle.
The first shipment of Lake Winnipeg
whitefish ever received in Westminster
came to hand yesterday, consigned to
W. H. Vianen. But it will probably be
the last consignment, as Mr. Vianen
was obliged to sell thein at cost price to
get them off his hands. The whitefish
ib considered among the most delicate
and delicious of tlie finny tribe, and
there is a better market for it iu the
large eastern cities than for any other
kind of fiBh. But it is hard to convince
anyono living on tho Fraser River that
sturgeon or salmon can bo excelled. The
whole lot imported by Mr. Vianen was
aold, but as only cost price was obtained
the enterprise did not prove profitable
and it will not be repeated.

At the police court this morning the

Kcc, charged with selling opium without a license, came up and were disposed of. Mr. Jenns appeared for the
prosecution and Mr. R, W. Armstrong
for the defence. Much evidence and
considerable argument were brought
forward for the defence, but the cases
resulted iu both men being fined $50,
arid ordered to take ont opium licenses
(costing $250) forthwith. The charges
against them for selling liquor without
a license will be heard on Monday. Mr.
T. C Atkinson, P. M., and Capt. Pittendrigh, J. P., presided. A few more examples of this kind and our Celestial
merchants will conclude that there is a
great advantage in obeying the law

Swallowed a Duck.
This morning one of W. H. Vianen's
assistants mnde a curious find while
cleaning an 85-pound halibut. Thia find
was nothing less than a full grown wild
duck, with liead, legs, wings, body and
feathers complete, which was taken
from the belly of this monster fish. The
fish had swallowed the bird whole, so it
may easily be imagined what sort of a
mouth it was furnished with. Several
fishermen who have spent their whole
lives at the business, and who happened
to be present when the bird was taken
from the fish's belly, say they have
never known of a similar lind. It a halibut weighing 85 lbs. can swallow a duck,
a 250 lb. halibut, which are by no means
rare, ought to be able to dispose of man
without suffering indigestion afterwards.

Nearly Drowned.
Mr. M. A. McRae, tho tailor, came
very nearly losing his life at Brownsville, yesterday. He was engaged in
unloading a scow of lumber, with wliich
he intends to build a cottage at Brownsville, and while passing from the scow
to thit wharf, the foot-plank broke and
he fell into the wuter. There wore soveral men on the scow, but Mr. McRae
had sunk twice and was nbout to go
down for the third and last time,
when they managed to get hold of
htm and drag him from tho water.
He was unconscious wheu rescued, aud
had to be brought to the cityfor medical
assistance. Mr. McRae suffered very
severely from the effects of his cold bath,
but to-day he was much better, and it is
expected he will be as well as ever in a

Thursday's Columiiian as having
fallen heir to a large fortune,
left by a deceased relative of Jacksonville, Fla., haB been found. She resides near Sapperton, on the Port Moody

She is well known to all the old timers,
who rejoice with her iu tho good fortune
that lias befallen her. Mrs. Scott will
take immediate steps to be placed in the
possession of her just rights, uud which,
by the way, should have been hers yeara
ago. The fortune to which Mrs. Scott is
heir is very large, but neither she or her
relatives in Seattle have any idea of the
exact amount. Her husband's name is
Charles Johu Scott, nnd the Seattle relatives, not being very intimate, had pro
bably forgotten her exact title.

Unknown Vessel Wreaked.
About two weeks ago, after one of
the heavy gales which have prevailed
on lho wcbI coast of Vancouver Island,
Indians weut to Messrs. Brown & Pen-
ney's shire at Clayoquot, and reportod
that a ship laden with lumber had been
lost ou a reef south of Vargas Island,
about five miles from the Clayuqnot
store. That from seven to eight hundred feet of lumber had come ashore,
and that all bauds on the vessel had
been drowned. The Indians searched
along the beach, but could find no bodies up to that time. The place where
the vessel was wrecked is so rocky and
exposed to the full sweep of the wind
aud waves, that she must have speedily
gone to pieces after striking the reef.
One of the musts with a mass of cordage
was floating over the reef, held in place
by some of the ropes being entangled in
the rocks. With this exception aud the
large quantity of lumber strewn along
tlie rooky beack, there waB not the
slightest trace of the unfortunate vessel
or ner crew, or anything to indicate her
name, or where she wus bound for, One
clue, and that a slight one, waB found
which may lead to the identification of
the unhappy ship and her ill-fated crew.
The Indians showed Mr. Penney a small
leather pouch such as Ib commonly worn
by sailors, and which the natives said
they found among the lumber on the
beach; but most likely the article waB
picked up in the water in the vicinity of
the wreck. The pouch and its contents is now in the possession of Rev.
Father Heynen, of Clayoquot, and if
any further details of the wreck are discovered the newB will be sent to Victoria
at the earliest opportunity.
Introduced   Into the   Dominion   Houae
on Behalf of the Dumb Oroatlon.

SURREY CENTRE NOTES.
Mr, Sellers, the chief of the Maritime
Provincial Grange, gave his brother farmers some good advice the other day in
an address which he delivered at Halifax.   He said:
We must have our fair share of representation [ the election drawB near,
the wily politician is ont in full force.
He claps the sturdy farmer ou tite back,
and says: 'You are tho bone and sinew
of tlio country; without you llie wheels
of commerce would stop, etc.; but whatever you do, Mr, Farmer, vote tho
straight party ticket, and do not desert
your party;' and too often we as farmers,
aro led to the polls as sheep to tho
slaughter. Now, brother farmers, this
should not be; we should have a strong
independent mind of our own, nnd not
hesitate to act upon it, looking more to
the man and the principles he advocates
than to the party.
In view of our provincial elections
coming off next summer, Mr. Sellers'
advice is worth remembering by the
"bone And sinew" of British Columbia,
A Matrimonial Event—An Old Pioneer,
anil   His    Difficult   and   Dangerous
Entry Into the Province ln '58.
A Howdy Performance.
On February the 4th, at New Westininster, Carrie Boothroyd, daughter of
Mr. George Boothroyd, of Surrey Centre, and Albert G. Anderson, of the
same place, were united in marriage,
Rev. Jas. II. White, of the Methodist
church, performing the ceremony, after
which the happy couple drovo homo to
tlio residence of the bride's fathor, from
where they started on their wedding
tour, visiting friends at Whatcom and
other places on the Sound. The Columbian extends congratulations.
Mr. George Boothroyd, the father of
tho brido, it is interesting to note, is
one of the oldest pioneers of tho province. Au Englishman, by birth, he
arrived iu San Francisco, via New York
and Panama, early in 1-852, nud iu -the
fall of 1858 reached the Fruser river.
The route taken from Snn Francisco was
overland, by way of Oregon ahd Washington territory. From Portland tho
party proceeded up tho Columbia River
via The Dalles ana Fort Simcoe to Fort
Okanagan, thence up the river of that
name to Okanagan Lake, thence through
Grand Prairie by way of KainloopB (a
Hudson Bny station), and through Marble Canyon to the FraBor River. ^ The
trip, as may bc imagined, was an interesting and rather dangerous ono at that
time, and the party to which Mr, Boothroyd belonged had two men shot dead
and one wounded, by Indians, en route.
During the past weok this portion of
the progressive district of Surrey haa
beou the scene of some of the most disgraceful proceedings imaginable, the
particulars being ns follows: Some time
ago two very worthy residents determined between themselves thnt it would
to their mutual advantage to hitch.
This determination they proceeded to
carry out by going to Westminster and
liaving the business executed in a business-like manner. This was very well
so far aB the young couple's private arrangements 'went, but there wns another party whom they had not consulted in the matter. This was a few of
the rowdy class (whose names are
known) who, about a week after the
hitching event had occurred, determined umong themselves that ub thoy
had not been taken into tho confidence
and counsels of the parties hitched,
they would endeavor to relieve
the monotony of early married life
somewhat by giving tho whole neighborhood the benefit of a freo concert,
or in other words a first-class chirivari.
This they proceeded to do in the most
approved style. Thoy first filled themselves with courage in the form of bad
whiskey, then armed with tin pans,
horns, guns, etc., repaired to the residenco of the worthy people for whose
special benefit all these preparations
had been made, aud there for two night
in succession, created a regular pandemonium. This order of business was
not all appreciated by the recipients of
tho favor, aud tho gentlemen composing
the crowd were requested to return unto the road, whoro for sovoral hours each
night, with their disgraceful and unearthly yelling, whooping, firing guns,
blowing horns, aud beating tin pans,
they "enjoyed themselves," In a manner
becoming a number of civilized young
men. The most reprehensible feature
of the whole affair lies In the fact that
there are persons who are in a very delicate state of health residing in the immediate vicinity, who were compelled
to submit to the frightful racket, not-
■'ithstanding the fact, that the gentlemen
./ere probably requested to desist on
their account, but, no they came for a
purpose and that purpose must be carried out, uo matter who suffered injury
or annoyance.
