A Wholesale Elocution.
London, Feb. 18.—Despatches iron}
Shanghai give details of a wholesale execution which took place recently in Pekin. The condemned were 14 in number, and were conveyed to the place of
execution in waggons. They were dressed
in red, their hands were tied behind
thein and heavy chains fastened around
their necks. The prospect of death,
however, had no . effect, and ■ they
seemed utterly indifferent to their fate.
At the place of execution the waggons
stopped, and the Imperial commissioner
read the decree of condemnation.
Nino prisoners were to be beheaded and
five to be hanged. The former were
placed in front of the place assigned to
receive their bodies. Their faces were
painted red and their red clothes were
stripped from them,.and each one was
forced to dig a grave for himself two
feet in depth. The subsequent work of
the executioner was speedy,' and in a
very few minutes nine were beheaded
mm five strangled. The bodieB of the
latter were stretched on the ground and
the officers pinned on each a large paper
giving the name and crime of the condemned. The bodies were exposed to
the prey of carrion birds. An immense
throng flocked to Pekin from the neighborly country to witness the execution.
Count Andraisey Dead.
Vienna, Feb. 18.—Count AndraBaey
died at three o'clock this morning.
Yatei' Cable.
London, Feb. 18.—The German Emperor's letter to the working classes does
not meet approval from the German aristocracy. The court attributes this to
the influeuce of the Empress Frederick,
Her son, it is now seen, haB imbibed
more of the strongly sentimental side of
his father's character than his earlier
speeches seemed to indicate. His solicitude for the wage earners has not prevented his German majesty from taking
up a new hobby, that of fencing, which he
practises for an hour or two every day.
Colonel Vondraeky, a gyranaium master,
finds him a ready pupil. This official a
few years ago introduced a treatment
from which the Emperor's left arm derived considerable benefit.
A   GREAT    LOSS.
Lord Sydney's death is a very great
loss to the Queen, and she felt it very
much. For years he has been in most
confidential relations with her and the
Hoyal Family, and almost daily Mb work
was a letter to the Queen relating all social and political news of the day. He
adyised her a great deal on matters of
business, and about the investment of
her money: in which latter capacity he
was succeeded hy Lord Cross. The sympathy of everyone is great with Lady
Sydney, for after a life of great
happiness and devotion she is left
a childless widow, and Quite broken
down by her loss. Lord Sydney waB in
many respects an ideal lord chamberlain, and Iub death severs the one remaining link between the Queen's
household and that of the preceding
reign. Gout and age have of late years
sadly impaired his commanding presence, and on the last occasion he appeared in public, he was unable to
ascend the staircase of Buckingham
Palace without assistance. Among his
colleagues he was popularly known as
" Polonius," and upon all questions connected with his particular department
he was the greatest living authority.
He was a firm believer in blood and
merit, and showed little mercy to upstarts and other undeserving aspirants.
TUB WATERLOO MEMORIAL.
Tho last stone of the base of the
Waterloo memorial at Brussels was
placed in position last week, nnd Count
Jacques Du Lalainy's emblematic figure,
which is to crown it,- is now in the
caster's hands. It is of collossal size and
represents Brittannia on her knees
lowering a flag at the tomb of her Waterloo heroes. The whole sum required
for the monument has been raised, and
there is a small balance on hand. It is
hoped either the Prince of Wales or the
Duke of Cambridge may be induced to
unveil it in July. Two or three other
skeletons are to be brought in from the
battle field and deposited in the manso-
leum below the statute. Count Jacques,
though under thirty, is reckoned among
the most eminent of living Belgian
artists. In America he is favorably
known for the figure of Chevalier Robt.
De Lasalle, which stands in Lincoln
Park, Chicago.
THE COSTS OF THE COMMISSION.
The Government is satisfied with the
report of the Parnell Commission and so
are the Irish party, which is paying a
high compliment to the impartiality of
tlie judges. But after the decree comes
the bill and question of costs, which is
agitating Downing street and the printing houses. The Government will probably ask for a vote to defray expenses of
witnesses, which has always been done
in cases of royal commissions. The shorthand reporters will be paid by the
Government, and they are always heavy
expenses. It is said it will cost the
Times a 1150,000 at the most favorable
calculations. Had the case been an
overwhelmingly damaging one a public
subscription might have been successful, but as the feeling is more negative
than anything else, the possibility of
such a thing seems remote.
The Labor Queition.
London, Feb, 17.—Earl Dunraven and
Lord Randolph Churchill have consented to receive on Tuesday a deputation
from the Miner'B Federation, who will
urge their lordships to aid the eight-
hour agitation by their influence. It is
hinted that Lord Randolph Churchill
invited the conference and that he intends to make a reply to tbe deputation
that will ocasion some comment.
Lord Randolph has been coquetting
with the labor question for some time
and Ib evidently trying to bring it into
politics in some such Bhape so that his
''fourth party" can make capital out of
it. At present, however, labor movements are dwarfed by the project of
Emperor William in Germany, and
everybody Ib waiting to see what will
come out of the young Kaiser's conference. It Ib not likely that much of importance will be done in other countries
until this striking and unique attempt
to solve hy ono supreme effort the long
standing and complex labor question
has reached its result,
In a Dilemma.
London, Eeb, 17.—The government is
placed in a peculiar dilemma by the inconclusive nature of the Parnell Commission's report. The report, as it
stands, really calls for no action, but to
remain passive would be a disastrous
policy, in view of the enormous expense
involved by the enquiry and the enormous importance which has been placed
upon the whole affair. To ignore the
report after such a prodigious fuss - has
been made over the events leading to
its preparation, would throw a wet
blanket on the Government and give rise
to endless ridicule. On the other hand,
to grasp the other horn of the dilemma,
interpret the report at its worst and expel the Parnellites against whom nominal findings were made, would necessitate an appeal to the country, and this
is something that the Government is
very anxious not to riek, in view of the
evident loss of To-y strength revealed
in the bye-elections. There is, consequently, much curiosity to see how Lord
Salisbury will act in the matter.
The Latter Day, Saint*.
Salt Lake Citv, Utah, Feb. 16.-A
few dayB before ChristmaB the Utah
Commission's offlce was entered by burglars and an unsuccessful attempt made
to steal the books and papers. The
Utah Commission is the body having
charge of all election matters in the territory, and it keeps all the records pertaining to elections. It was generally
supposed that the Mormons were at the
bottom of the attempted burglary, for
they were desirous about that time of
procuring the registration books if possible. On Friday the Mormons began
their contest in the Third District Court
to compel the Utah Commission to issue
to their candidates for the City Council
from the third and fourth precincts of
this city certificates of election. They
have a majority of votes in these precincts, ana if tne court decides that precinct votes count for councilmen instead
of the general vote of the city, the Mormons woqld have six out of the fifteen
councilmen. The case was set for tomorrow for appearing, but the opinion
prevails that the old law is still in force,
and that the precinct vote will not
count. On Friday night there was another attempt to steal the records of the
Utah Commission, but aB the important
papers are all in the safe deposit vault
of the Union National Bank nothing of
consequence was obtained. The burglars, however, stole a gold watch of General McClern and $120.
A Great Age.
Cumberland City, Tenn., Feb. 16.—
William Thornton Bluefleld, a resident
of this (Hickman) county, claims to be
127 years of age, and he possesses remarkable proofs of his age. Among
these is a very ancient-looking family
Bible, in which hiB birth iB recorded aB
having taken place on January 3rd, 1763,
i:t a village six miles west of Lake Drum-
niond, Va. The Bible was printed in
the seventeenth century and is regarded
as a remarkable curiosity, On the margin of several pages are the dates of
births, marriages and deaths. The first
cf these gives 1730 as the year of Mr.
l'luetiekTs father's birth, while the last
i ecords the death last year of Samuel
Caxton, of Baton Rouge, aged 70. The
list named wbb a grandson of the sur-
living William Bluefleld, and his age
and relationship are strong proofs of the
correctness of the old gentleman's claim.
When 27 years of age William emigrated
to the source of the Haw river, in Carolina, where he married Martha Welts in
1792, At her death, which occurred in
hss than one year after the marriage,
1 e went to Kentucky, where he led a
wild and nomadic life until 1828, when
he came to middle Tennessee. During
his stay of thirty:five years in Kentucky
be met Daniel Boone several times. On
one occasion he stopped with Colonel
Loone six weeks at Boonesborough. a
short time before Boone's departure ior
Missouri. ^■■—s-.^—.
VICTORIA NEWS.   -
A   Great   Fire.—Hastle   A   Lockliart's
Furniture Store li Destroyed.
[From Our Own Correspondent.]
Victoria, Feb. 18.—1 ;30 p. m.—A fire
bas just broken out iu the basement of
HaBtie it Lockhart's furniture establishment on Government Btreet' The fire ia
in the business part of the city. At present dense volumes of smoke are pouring
from beneath the sidewalk, while two
steamers are pouring streams into the
building. If the fire is not gotten under
control, a disastrous conflagration will
be the result. The fire iB near the Bank
of British Columbia which, however, is
a brick building. The wind is blowing
fresh from the north.
1:45 p. m.—Dense volumes of smoke
continue to pour from beneath the sidewalk in front of HaBtie & Lockhart's and
Angus & Gordon's stores. The fire is at
present confined to the basement of the
former place, but it must havo a firm
hold, The steamer "John Grant" is
pouring two powerful streams into the fire
with apparently no effect. Most of the
stock of furniture has been removed. A
fresh northerly wind is blowing, which,
if the fire Ib not got under control, may
send it through the two buildings at the
comer of Fort and Government Btreets,
There it will stop, as the solid Bank of
British Columbia building stands in
Its path. The greatest excitement prevails and dense masses
of people gathered on the street watching the clouds of choking smoke. The
new Merryweather engine is working
splendidly. If the fire reaches Sehl's
furniture factory, to the north of the
building, a disastrous conflagration may
ensue. It Ib hoped, however. the water
v, ill Boon make some impression on the
8 lines. A disastrous fire began in the
Snme spot three years ago, on the night
bifore the first overland train reached
Port Moody. The whole block was
threatened at one time. The Colonist

Commons, and Some ot the Debates

Ffrom Our Own Correspondent.]
THE SENATE.
Ottawa, Jan. 8.—Last Thursday the
Senate spent nearly all the afternoon in
discussing the procedure in receiving petitions for divorces. The spokesmen were
Senators Hickey and Miller, the former
giving his version only to receive opposition from the latter. Senator Hickey
contended that one rule of the Senate
,vas that the petition Bhould be presented in the usual way, and after one sitting day certain proofs Bhould be made
at the bar of the Senate. Hon. Mr.
Miller was of the opinion that he would
be able to show to the House that, the
honorable gentleman was quite wrong,
both in Iub interpretation of the rule
and in the citation he made in support
of hiB view, and contended that tho
word "presented" is intended to comprise the general procedure whieh takes
place in regard to petitions presented to
the Senate before they are reforred to
the committee. He then callod upon
hia honorable friend to rofer to rule 4,
and he would find out his error. Then
they crossed swords and began to battle
in earnest, being at times given a chance
to recover from tlieir exhaustion by the
assistance rendered by Senators Vidal,
Ucott, Kaulbach, Power, Macdonald and
Lacoste. The petitions were, however,
read, and yesterday the select committee
on divorce presented their report on the
petition of Christiana F. Glover, which
was adopted.
The reading of the address, the reply,
a few notices of motion, introduction of
i\ few bills, and the above referred to
discussion on divorce procedure is all
that has been accomplished by the honorable Senate since the opening of Parliament, January 16th, 1890.
HOUSE   OF   COMMONS.
The House of Commons is where the
battle rages, sparks fly, men are wounded
in the field,, skillfully doctored and cared
for, and renew the struggle. It is a continuous struggle for supremacy and becomes on many occasions quite interesting to the ou-looker. Sir John, mild
md confident, smiling as he speaks,
i lwaya with the appearance of gayety,
listens to the attacks of his opponents,
f nd then gently but positively, whether
they are wrong or not, tells them that
they are. Hon. Mr. FoBter, atern and
studious, awaits hie chance to break
down the bulwarks of the accusations of
the Opposition. Hon, Mr. Chapleau,
waving his flowing black head of hair,
when called to the front, flashes forth
i ito ecstacies of excitement, and cuts
t ight and left, over and under, behind
End before. Hon.*Macki-nzie Bowell, in
calm contentment, keeps his head buried
i i the bluebookB.
On the other aide we have Hon. Mr.
Laurier, quick, sharp, and awaiting his
opportunity to catch the enemy sleeping. Sir Richard Cartwright, with his
piercing oagle eye, viewing the Minister
of Finance and taking his dimensions,
intellectually and physically. Mr. McMullen, in deep thought, seeking to put
en paper some questions to ask the Government with the view of tearing a hole
i i the tent and discovering to outsiders
t ie doings of those inside and whero the
treasures are hidden. Hon. Mr. Davies,
defiant and ready to attack, and with a
£ ositi veness that clearly shows that the
> ler of a judgeship to him would be
eagerly spurned and dashed to the
ground with contempt. Mr. Charleton,
Meditating over the best plans to be
adopted for the observance of tbe Sabbath and the betterment of morality.
So here sit the two armies of Dominion
legislators, clothed with the garments of
trust and wearing the appearance of
men possessing the intellectual faculties
that Canada expects of them, and which
iu the majority of cases they hold.
Very few important debates have taken place since the opening nf Parliament.
The firat to kill the monotony was the
introduction of Mr. McCarthy's Northwest Territories Act—the dual language.
This, of course, brought Messrs. Amyot,
Desjurdins, Longelieur, Bergeron, Lari-
viere, Chapleau and Laurier to their
feet, the three latter gentlemen
being particularly hostile. and
claiming tnat the bill is an attack on the
French nationality. The next particularly important discussion wub that on
the estimates. Sir Richard Cartwright
and Mr. Foster fought hard and swift,
but the estimates, item after item, were
passed all the same, So far as the items
nave passed the following members took
part in the discussion: Sir Richard
Cartwright, Hon. Mr. Foster, Hon. Mr,
Laurier, Mr. McMullen, Mr, Soiner-
ville, Mr. Patterson, Mr. Casey, Hon.
Mr. Bowell, Mr. Wilson, Hon. Mr. Chapleau, Hon. Mr, Dewdney, Hon. Mr.
Mills, Hon. Mr. Haggard, Mr. Ellis,
Mr. Landerkin, Hon. Mr. Curling, Hon.
Mr. Tuppor, Sir John A. Macdonald,
Mr. Cook. Mr. Brown, Hon. Mr. Colby.
Mr. Landerkein moved, "That, whereas distillers are allowed a rebate duty
upon malt imported for ubo in the
manufacture of spirits for export, it is,
In the opinion of thiB House, but just
and right that tho farmers and stock
misers who import corn to foed cattlo or
o her stock for export should also receive a similar rebate. ThiB motion was
k st ou a vote of 64 yeas to 70 nays.
Messrs., Barnard, Gordon and Mara voted with the majority. Mr. Prior was ab*
sent.
Tho "Electoral Franchise Act," in*
tioducodby Dr, Wilson, haa been dis
cussed for two days and is not yet end*

AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
The Right to Catoh Seal In Behring Sea.
In the Supreme Court ou Wednesday
Ust, before Hon. Mr. Justice Drake, a
decision was given lu the case of Baxter vs. Jacobs, Soloman Jacobs, the
defendant, was owner and master of the
sihooner Mollie Adams, In January,
1180, he made a contract with Baxter,
oi Seattle, to sell him at a stipulated prico
all tho skins taken by his two schooners,
the Mollie Adams and the Webster, dur
ing the coming year. The Webster was
lost, and on the following April the
Mollie Adams returned aud delivered
her spring catch to Baxter, at Seattle.
There was thon a verbal understanding
botween thom that the Mollie Adams
was to return nnd seal in Behring Sea
and deliver skins to Baxter in accordance with the contract. She wont to
Bohring Son and returned lust November, but instead of delivering the skins
to Baxter, sold them in Victoria. Baxter then brought suit against Solomon
Jacobs for damages by oreueh of contract.
The defence held that the contract
was not valid as sealing in Bebriqg Sea
was in violation of the United States
statutes, and called Mr. Johnston, of
Port Townsend, aB a legal expert, to establish in the court the American law
relating thereto. He took the sections
of the statutes governing the case, the
amendments enacted by congress of 1889
and the President's proclamation.
The court decided that the contract
waB valid, and refused to recognize the
jurisdiction of the United States in
Behring Sea outside of one marine
league from the shore of the American
territory. It was held that section four
governed the case and that the law,
where a contract was made, had no
bearing in court.
Baxter was awarded 14,101 damages,
Both defendant and plaintiff are American citizens and the schooner was an
American vessel.
Defendant has been committed to jail
in default of payment of the money.—

DR. GUTHRIE'S DEFENSE.
He Confesses to Being a Fool hut Not
A Villain.
The Victoria correspondent of the
Post-Intelligencer 'writes: Dr. Guthrie
has returmed here from WestminBter,
the charge of fraud preferred againBt
him by the Bank of Montreal there having been dismissed. He has returned
to his old love, gambling, and last evening waa feeling particularly good, hie
winnings being in the hundreds. While
iu this amiable frame of mind he confided all his troubles to the Post-Intelligencer correspondent, being anxious, lie
said, to correct a wrong impression
about his actions in Seattle.
"I know I made a fool of myself in
Seattle," he Baid, "but all the same 1
never got $1 by fraud. I owe $2,260 in
Seattle, and I'm going to square up as
soon as I come back from the East. I
was robbed right and left until I left Seattle, and the drafts I eent in to my
father averaged $200 a day right along.
Then he refused to accept more.
"I was at a gambling table one night
when a deputy sheriff, a friend of mine,
came in and called me out. As soon as
we were outside I asked, "What's up;"
He had a hack at the door and hustled
me into it, telling me warrants had been
issued for my arrest and advising me to
get out of the city by the next boat.
' 'He went with me to my room and ,
helped pack my trunk and I took his
advice and caught the Premier, landing
in Vancouver with just two dollars to
my name. All the time he was helping
me out he had the warrant for my arrest
in hia pocket.
"From Vancouver I went to Westminater, where I knew the manager of the
Bank of Montreal. I called on him and
aBked if he would put through a draft
on my father. He was quite willing
and refused to take the usual commission. Then as soon aB he aaw that piece
in the Post-Intelligencer he swore out a
warrant aud I was arrested. The draft
was paid by my father the very day it
waB due and I have given my lawyers,
Eberts & Taylor, instructions to proceed
with an action for $10,000 damages for
false imprisonment.
"In a few days I am going home to
Guelph, but am coming back to square
things in Seattle and make it warm for
tlie newspapers that lied about me. I
have been a fool, I know, but I never
was a criminal."
ASHCROFT NOTES.
[From Our ptftt Correspondent.]
A very pleasant social gathering, gotten up by the ladies, took place here ou
Friday evening, 14th inst, the Wife of
Ashcroft and vicinity turning out in full
force.. Among those present were Mr.
and Mrs. J. Campbell, the Misses Campbell, Mrs. McLeod, Miss Sanford and
Mrs. Stevenson of Cache Creek, Mr. and
Mrs. Mundorff of Grave Creek, Mr. Wm.
Harvey and Dr. Sanson of Clinton, and
many others of the same place. The
new town hall was tastefully decorated,
and the band waB furnished by Prof.
Hautier, whose reputation for flrst-class
music iB well known to the lovers of
good dancing. The floor managers
were: C. E. Carey, J. Haddock and
Chas. McNichol. Supper was served by
the old-time caterers, Bligh and Lynes,
of the Ashcroft hotel, and considering
the short notice it was aB fine a "layout" aa was ever "turned losse" in this
section of the country. It was served
under the personal supervision of the
ever popular Major Bligh. Several
toasts were given and replied to. Jim
Newlands told "what he knew about
ice," while Billy Lynes rendered "You'll
Remember Me," with variations, in a
pathetic manner, bringing tears to the
eyes of tho most hardened sinner. Joe
Burr gave "Little Annie Rooney," the
latest craze, in good stylo, and Col.
Carey, of the C.P.R., poured forth
"what Jim Newlands didn t know about
ice." The ladies in general were neatly
drossed and presented a handsome appearance. Si, Hemans, who had just
returned from the weat in time to "take
a hand," was called upon to respond to
the toast "What shall we do with our
girls?" After wrestling with the subject for some hours he concluded that
the hest that could be done with our
girls was to "let them alone." Mr,
Heman's stock in the matrimonial market immediately dropped.
After being confined for nearly a
month, Mr. J. Glassey, the enterprising
manager of the Ashcroft Hotel, has mado
his appearance, and waB cordially received by his many friends and admirers.
Ho is a great dea. better, but not aa yet
able to attend to business.
Mart Eagleson was last week badly
kicked on the loft leg by a mule. He is
able to be about on crutches.
Stock is doing well and the weather
his boen particularly fine, and the farmers are looking for a general clear up in
tlie near future.
Jack McKay, who haB been spending a
vacation at Kamloops, has returned and
is shaking hands with his many friends
here.
McNichol and Finney are still working away at their coal mines. They are
now down 12 feet with very flattering
prospects.
The old British Columbian veteran,
Col. Chris. Barnes, is hale and hearty
aB ever, and jubilant over the prospects
of the coming season.
Mr. Wm. Walker, of Bonaparte, who
h;is been quite ill, is now convalescent.

THE WATER WORKS.
By the report of the Council proceedings of last night, in another column, it
will be seen that the report of the
Water Commissioners on the tenders
received for the construction of the city
water works was roceived aud adopted
by the Council, Tho Commissioners reported that they had received fifteen
tenders In all, "two of which included
" the whole work und the others the
" supplying of thu material or a portion
" of the work or both," but it is plainly
intimated that the lowest tonder received wuuld necessitate the expenditure of "a much larger Bum than the
" first estimate," rendering the amount
at thu disposal of the Council for the
work—about $176,000—inadequate. The
original estimate of the cost of the works
is, nevertheless, stated to have been
fair one, aud the higher figures of the
tenders received are ahown to be the result of a considerable rise in iron and
freights. "In view of these facts," con-
" eludes the report, "and also that ward
" No. 1 and the greater part of ward No.
" 6 haa not been included in the distri-
" bution system on which tenders were
" invited, we would not recommend that
" any of these tenders be accepted, but
"other tenders be called for after a
" short time when tho price of material
" may be lower as well as freight, and
" some changes may be made in the
" specifications bo as to include the
" whole city in the distribution system
" as well as in some other particulars
" which we consider will be iu the in-
" terests of the city and tend to make
" the works moro complete and efflci-
" ent."
We quote the report thus at length
because the report itself is the beat possible explanation and justification of the
Water Commissioners' recommendations
and their approval and adoption by the
Council. When it is stated, in addition,
that the Commissioners and the Council
were in possession of information warranting a fair presumption that both
iron and freights were about at their
"top notch" at present, with a reasonable prospect of a decline iu the hear
future, we do not see what other action,
in the interests of the city, could have
been taken than has boen taken. True,
everyone iB anxious that the water
works should be got under wuy with as
little delay as possible, and the refusal
to accept tenders at this time may delay
the ultimate completion of the works by
a month or bo ; but if this comparatively
trifling delay resulted in a saving to the
city of thirty, forty, or fifty thousand
dollars that would otherwise be squandered in fictitious iron and freight rates,
and should also result in better specifications than would appear to exist, from
the Commissioners' report, embracing
a distribution system for the entire city
—without which the wator works can
never be satisfactory or complete—we
'believe the brief loss of time referred to
would not be begrudged by a single rate*
payer or citizen. When all the circumstances are considered, in fact, it is not
at all improbable that a judicious delay
at this time, to set matters right that
have been wrong, as well as to await a
more favorable turn of the iron and
freight markets, will result in the long
run in an actual saving of time as well
as money in the construction of the
water works.
It would, undoubtedly, be In the
interest . of contractors, . especially
those who undertake to supply
the material, that their tenders
should be accepted when Iron and
freights are at their highest. They
would then do the "waiting act" until
rates should fall, whon a handsome
"scoop" could be made on the city.
This would be a legitimate enough trans*
action on the part of the contractor, if
the city chose to allow it, but the great
majority of the ratepayers will prefer
that the city, instead of private parties
at the city's expense, Bhould benefit by
the reasonably anticipated fall iu iron
rates and freights, and will, therefore,
on this and- the other grounds set forth
in the report, approve of the action of
the Water Commissioners and the City
Council and give both bodies credit for
acting ln the city's best interests.
ELECTRICITY A8 A PEACEMAKER.
" tion to the opposing army. Before go-
" ing any further with it I would ask
' your opinion as to the effect upon war
' of an instrument such as I have hint-
' ed at. Would it retard or facilitate
1 war?"
The conslderateneBB of the Hghtning-
itriking New Jersey inventor is only
equalled by the colossal ness of his genius;
but he had better put his war-exterminator in the field without delay, as, if
it will do one-half of what he so confidently claims for it, it is a dead certainty that it will put an end to war,
either by deterring would-be belligerents
from coming to blows or by exterminating in short order all who do. After all,
the New Jersey man's invention, if it
should turn out to be a bona fide affair
and not the enthusiastic ravings of a
crank, is only in the same line, but on a
larger scale, with the " smokeless powder" and otlier recent improvements in
wholesale death-dealing appliances, and
all have an almost universally conceded
tendency to lesson tho chanceB of great
wars among the civilized nations of the
earth, by acting as a wholesome deterrent, in view of the frightfully unpre
cedented slaughter that would inevitably
ensue. And thus the very development
of the Bcience of war is gradually but
surely working its own cure, and this
heathenish and brutal manner of settling international disputes bids fair,
like the individual duel, to give placo
before long to more civilized and Christian methods.
A  SUBMERGED RAILWAY.
A New Jshhky inventor thinks ho has
hit upon a method of establishing peace
permanently upon the earth by means
of electricity. He does not propose to
remodel human nature, hut expects to
make warfare so deadly that it will be
sheer madness for one nation to attack
anothor. According to his plan, war-
fore would result in the substantial ex
termination of all who ventured to engage in it. In a letter to the Western
Electrician the inventor describes his
Idea thus: "In a word my scheme Is to
" produce artificial lightning. Thus far
" the experiments have beeu confined
" within narrow limits, but with the
41 use of a small dynamo attached to my
" invention a slight shock can bo pro-
" duced, effective enough to kill tho flies
" in a 20x20 room. I claim, with the
" use of powerful dynamos, under my
" plan, a flush of lightning can be di
" reeled against an army a milo or more
" away and without injury to the party
" operating the gun, scattering death
" and consternation among the troops.
" With powerful dynamos thousands of
" soldiers can be killed at a flash, and a
" number of flashes are enough to de*
" stroy an army. It oan bo used at any
" time except on rainy or damp days,
41 If the effect of giving this discovery
44 would 'be, as I hope, to put an end to
" war, I should feel repaid, but I dread
41 to think of electricity being used in
"war under iny plan. The conse-
41 quences would be enormous, It
" means nothing less than extermina
Tuk ruins of Onton, near Bilbao, in
the northern part of Spain, have long
been celebrated for their richness in the
yield of iron ores suitable for the manufacture of steel, but great trouble has
heretofore been experienced in the shipment of the mineral on account of the
difficulty of placing it on board of the
ships. England and the Continent are
the great markets for this product. The
coast adjacent to these mines is high,
rocky and exposed to the full force of the
sea, there being no harbors in the immediate vicinity. At the foot of the
rocks there is a sloping shore which extends out to a considerable distance,
with an even grade. It is upon this incline that the remarkable railway in
question, and .which is described at
length lu the Scientific American, is constructed.
The roadbed of the railway has a
length of about 660 feet and a width of
20 feet, upon which two sets of parallel
tracks, each 3££ feet wide, are placed,
constituting a four-rail railway. The
grade is five feet to the hundred. The
car which traverses this railway, and
upon which the ore is conveyed from the
cliffs to the ships, consists of a high metallic tower made in the form of a pyramid having a wide triangular base. The
tower Ib mounted on wheels, which run
upon the quadruple railway track before
mentioned. The platform of the tower,
upon which the load of mineral is placed,
is about 70 feet high from the track, a
height which is sufficient to rise above
the decks of ordinary vessels when the
tower is run alongside thereof: and
from the platform the discharge of the
ore is made directly into the holds of the
vesaels. This great rolling tower is operated automatically. It is connected
to the shore by means of a strong wire
cable, which passes over pulleys fastened to the rocks. At the landward end
of the cable there are attached some
weighted cars that move up and down
upon an incline. These form a counterbalance weight for pulling the tower
when empty in toward the shore.
The mineral to be loaded upon the
vessels is brought from the mines,
which are not far distant from the coast,
upon rope railways mounted upon
poBtB, From the mineral dumps
upon the rouky heights the mineral is conveyed part way down
the cliff through a chute, the end of
which projects beyond the cliff, and
when the empty towor is drawn to shore
by the weighted cars before mentioned,
it automatically opens an end gate In
the chute and allows the mineral to
drop upon the platform in a continuous
stream until a weight of ore sufficient to
overcome that of tho counterbalancing
weight or weighted cars has fallen upon
the platform; and when this takes place,
the tower, by its own gravity, begins to
move down the inclined railway through
the water, until it reaches the side of
tbe ship, which is anchored fore and aft,
and then by the throw of a lever, the
platform of the tower boing inclined,
the whole load upon the platform is almost instantly deposited upon tho Bhip,
going down through suitable slides into
the hold thereof. As soon as the discharge of the load takes place, the counterbalancing cars begin to draw the
tower inward again toward tho shore,
and thus tho operation of moving tho
tower back and forth automatically, and
automatically loading and discharging
itsolf, is carried on with the greatest
success.
It is said this railway operates even
when the sea Is extremely rough. It
certainly is a bold undertaking, and reflects the greatest credit upon its constructor, Mr. D. M. Alberto de Palacio.
The platform carries for its load one
hundred tons of ore. It is said that 6,-
000 tons of ore per day can be put on
shipboard by means of this apparatus,
the total cost of which was only $18,000.
Montreal, Hamilton and other places,
accompanied by Messrs. J. J. Curran,
M.P., and R. White, M.P., waited upon
the Ministers of Finance and Customs
at Ottaw** a few days ago. They wanted
the duty on boots and shoes increased
from 26 to 36 per cent., claiming that aB
the duty on the raw material was now
20 per cent., the present duty of 26 per
cent, on boots and shoes is not sufficient.
Mr. Henry M. Stanley, observes an
exchange, is a shrewd business man as
well as an intrepid explorer. Prior to
setting out on his recent journey across
the Dark Continent he made an arrangement with the members of his party by
which each bound himself to publish
nothing in the nature of a story of the
expedition. Mr. Herbert Ward, who
waBwith the party, has lately contributed articles to magazines and is now
lecturing on Africa, but it will be noticed
that he does not deal with tho forbidden
topic. Mr. Stanley has a monopoly of
that, and in securing the right of publication of his forthcoming book the
ScribnerB have won a prize.
The Italian heir apparent has reached
hiB twentieth year, but he still shares
the quiet family life of Iub parents, aud
always accompanies the Queen on her
visits to different parts of Italy, and to
her mother, who resides at Saresa. The
Prince of Naples, though pale and slight
for his age, enjoys very good health, and
has, since the age of nino, never been
indisposed even for a single day. He iB
grave and thoughtful, fond of serious
study, but also extremely fond of shooting. King Humbert intended to present
to the heir apparent, on his coming of
age, the Palazzo delta Consulta, which
is situated quite close to the Qnirinal
but even kings cannot give' away what
is their own, and so many difficulties
arose in connection with the gift that
the plan has been abandoned, and the
Prince will probably have to be satisfied
with the palazziug built by Victor Em*
uianuel.
The preliminary statements of the
Canadian life insurance companies, prepared by Mr. W. Fitzgerald, superintendent of insurance, have been laid on
the table of the House of Commons by
tho Finance Minister. Tlie total amount

EARNING  AN   EDUCATION.
Uow   ImiH-cunluiu   Students  Manage  to
Obtain a College Courso.
It la wonderful how llttio a college
education may cost nowadays. Consider*
ing tbe generous scholarships, cheap
board, low room-rent and ample opportunities of self-help, it may truthfully
be said that there is no one so poor in
money as to be debarred the privilege
and advantage of a college course if ho
has pluck and health.
This is especially true at Williams.
A man really in need of help may receive a scholarship of 800 a year, and in
case of extreme need, 8150, This does
not depend upon bis ability as a student
further than that he must pass his examinations. Board is furnished by the
collego at a low figure, and unfurnished
rooms aro rented as low as 815 a year
for eaoh man.
Uoshk'H offering beneficiary aid, the
college employs a number of students in
college work. Tho monitors, whose
only duty is to keep attendance reports,
aro paid 816 a year. The oare of a building brings anywhere from 830 to $30, according to the amount of work required.
Attendants In the library make from
850 to 8100. The man who rings the
chapel bell gets his room and something besides. The organist makes
8150, and every member ot the chapel
choir 830.
A large number of students are en*
gaged ln work independent of the
college. Those who wait on table, a
favorite employment, get their board
free, At present a junior and a
sophomore are running an eating-house
and paying a large share of their expenses out of the proceeds. Several
keep stores, selling atblotio goods and
gontlemen'a furnishings, and running
Troy laundry agencies. A student from
Armenia deals in oriental goods. One
enterprising man buys and sella
second-hand f urni ture, undoubtedly
making a lordly profit at tho hands of
unsophisticated freshmen. Members of
tbe college quartet and editors of the
Weekly and tho Literary Monthly make
more or less, hut nothing magnificent.
Tutoring brings fair remuneration.
A young man working his way
through collego iB generally Ill-dressed,
ill-fed and ill-boused. Sometimes,
however, one meets a type that wears
fashionable cloches, boards at
"Jimmio's" and rooms in Morgan Hall,
hut is as truly working his way as a
waiter in the "hash house." This
magnificent character plays poker-
whenever he oan get any one to play
with—and also makes large but judicious bets on tho ball games. He is the
parasite of college life, but only very
rarely is he to be found at Williams.
Occasional sums are made in odd
ways. A student last year made himself a railway ticket agent for a week
before vacation, and cleared a small
fortune; A man from an adjoining
country village brought in a quantity
of maple sugar from bis father's farm,
and drove a thriving trado as long as his
stock lasted. Beforo a semi-annual examination a great deal of more or less
hasty reviewing is necessary; and, to
save time as well as labor, students
sometimes gather in companies of
twenty or thereabouts ana pay a man to
read the "trot," while they follow in
tho Oreek and Latin text. Bach man
pays tho reader flvo cents an hour, and
tries to believe that he is ready to meet
the dreaded "exam."
Quite a number of mon find employment altogether outside the college.
Several Bing in churoh choirs, and ono
junior makes a handsomo sum by giving
banjo lessons in tbo neighboring town
of North Adams. During tho spring
term n few got work on tho farms near
''Billvillo.*' A poor but plucky student
rises at five every morning and takes
care of tho stago driver's horses, spending his spare moments before breakfast
in reviewing his Thucydides.
Prize winning may be made very profitable, though It is seldom regarded ns a
means of support The valedictorian
last year carried off ovor 8300, and a
member of the class of '01 took more
than 8150, and is ln a fair way to keep on
In the good work.
Occasionally a student gets more than
his share of good fortune. There was
once a man at Williams who took cnre
of a professor's placo and got a furnished
room and washing free ln payment for
hia work, earned his board by waiting
on table, receivod college aid to ttie
amount of 800, and mado 830 by taking
care of a building and 830 mora by singing tn the chapel choir. Of court-u* this
was an exceptional case; but tbero uio a
great many men at Williams wbo earn a
large share of what tboy spend, and
nobler resolutions and manlier pluck
are rarely to he found.—N. Y. Sun.
ISRAELITIC  NAMES.
Similarity In the Nomenclature ot Israelite* and Indians,
A mode of bringing to notice the
barbarian stago of the Israelites at the
time under consideration Is to translate into English familiar personal
names from the Old Testument, such
as tho Dog, the Dove, tbo Hyena, the
Lion's Wholp, the Strong Ass, tho Adder and tho Running Hind. This
brings Into immediate comu-otion the
English translation of Indian names,
such as Big Bear, Whito Buffalo, Wolf,
Bod Cloud, Black Hawk, Fox, Crow and
Turtle. Suoh Israelite names were
probably of Gentile Origin, that Is, from
tbe elan or gens, for the Israelites wore
surely Gentiles in tbo truo sense, although later they abjured tho chargo.
But individuals among thom may also
have adopted Huch names becauso they
oould bo represented objectively. Such
selection is mado by somo Indian**
apart from their totem io designation,
Indians possess very few names that
cau not be represented In plotograpbs,
and the vory largo topic of tattooing Is
connected with this dovico antecedent
to writing. Tbu compilers of tbo Old
Testament probably desired to break
dowu a former praotice, as Is shown In
Leviticus xix., 28: "Yo Bhall not print
any marks upon you." And thoro are
other similar indications.—Garrlck Mallory, in Popular Science Monthly.

A Pin round In a Hoart.
At a recent meeting of the Association
of Amoricun Physicians Dr. Poabody
read a romarkablo paper on a oase where
a pin was found tn the heart, where tt
hod evidently lain for an Indefinite
period. Tbe point of the ptn was distent flvo mllllmotera from the external
surface of the heart. The pin seemed
eroded and was broken hy the scissors
In dissection, without, however, becoming displaced. There was no evidence
of recent local Inflammation, but the
endocardium ln the neighborhood of tho
protruding hood of the pin was greatly
thickened and snow white, and firmly
adherent to the edge of the hoad—St.

AFTER THE  ELEPHANTS.
A Boyal Hunt ln India Enjoyed by a BUu
from New Jersey.
The following account of a royal elephant hunt at Aynthia, India, was written home by a Now Jersey man who happened to witness that interesting event:
"The stookado in which the elephants
are yearly captured," he says, "is a
quadrangular piece of ground, inclosed
by a wall some six feet thick, having an
entrance on one Bide through which the
elephants are made to enter tho inclos-
ure. Inside tho wall is a fonce of strong
teak stakes driven Into the ground olose
i-ogetber, allowing only sufficient room
between tbem to permit the passage of
a man. In the center is a small house
erected on poles and strongly supported
and surrounded by stakes, wherein men
nre generally stationed for tbo purpose
of securing the animals, hut on this occasion the elephants were let loose upon
an open plain behind the arena and then
captured. Tho wild elephants being
then in the bamboo jungle in the vicinity of Aynthia, having been decoyed
from a great distance In the interior and
kept in readiness within a fow hours'
journey for tho appointed day, and as we
wore Informed of'their noar approach to
its we remained and witnessed the wild
boasts boing lured by tbo tamo onos.
"The Bight to us was n novelty. You
mo ovor an immenso plain at some distance a fow tamo elephants with their
riders ahead of at least two hundred
ivlbl ones, largo and small. You see
Llicm nearing you closer and closer,
until tboy approach tbo stookado, when
Hid tamo elephants form a front—ani
fancy fifteen tame beauts hemming ln
some two hundred wild ones In a small
space—when thoy wero pressed forward
through the entrance ono by ono. Here
wc experienced sume excitement. Some
'xo througlt quietly, others refuse, show
light, oharge the line ot front, and on
-teveral occasions broko through, when
olf go the tame elephants and bring
them baok, and so by patience and perseverance the whole number is driven
in. The gate Ib then olosed and they*
remain within tho inclosuro to await
tbo pleasure of the King.
"Early the noxt morning the King arrived, accompanied by a largo concourse
of nobles. At about eleven o'elook 'ob
arrived at a sort of grand stand and operations commenced. Tbo beasts that
had been penned up all night wero let
jiit through another gate opening Into
a plain, whero suoh as tbe King admired
wero caught. Here again tho scene was
exciting. If an animal which is irlmired
escapes, chase Is immediately mado
uftor It by tho tame elephants, tbe driver
of willed throws a lasso to catch the
fugitive's feot. Having effected this,
the animal upon whicb he rides leium itsolf with all its power the opposite way,
and thus brings tho other violently on
the ground. It is then strongly bound
:md conveyed to the elephant stables.
One largo male mado Its escape through
Min front ranks and was lost among tho
•ulna and junglo of the old city. Nat-
irally enough accidents aro of common
occurrence, mon boing kiliod by tho infuriated animals, wliich are frequently
confined for two days In tho inclosuro
without food. I am happy to say that
no aucidents of a serious nature occurred
du this occasion. I have only toohron-
:u!o a fow upsets of no importance.
Prom the two hundred elephants that
wero decoyed the King selected some
twenty of the bost. The remainder
wero driven Into the interior to await
v.ho onBuing year."—-Newark Sunday

A MILLIONAIRE'S START.
IIU Fortune  Derived  from  a  Hundred
Lushes on HU Ban Baok.
John James Mago, a quiet, middle-
aged man, Is here a tew days watting
for the Mexican steamer to sail. He
looks prosaic, but hts eareer is as romantic as that of Monte Crista Mago
ts now a Guatemalan millionaire, who
lives nine months of the year ln Paris.
Fifteen years ago he was a poor En*
gltah collector of insects ln Guatemala
and also aotod as British Vloe-Oonsul at
San Jose.
One day Comnwndante Gonzales ordered Mago to appear before him. Mago
sent word he would oome in a short
time. This incensed the Commandanto.
who waa ugly with drink, and he sent a
file of soldiers after Mago, and, when
the bug collector appeared, ordered
sovonty-five lashes laid on bis bare
back.
This was done thoroughly, and when
finished Gonzales shouted: "Give him
twenty-five more for lack." When Mago
recovered, whioh was only after careful
nursing, as his baok was badly out up,
ho made formal complaint to the British
Government The result was that
Guatemala was ordered to punish Gon-
taloB and to pay Mago 8500 for every
lash he received. In default of this English cruisers would shell San Jose and
othor coast cities.
Guatemala readily punished Gonzales,
hut tried hard to evade paying 850,000 to
Mago. The British, however, were inexorable, and the poor bug collector
waa made a comparatively rich man In
one day. As he had moro coin than any
ono ln the country thon, President Barrios ontered Into partnership with blm.
Mago became one of the largest ooffoi*-
planters and also seoured the exclusivo
franchise for building dooks In the
ports. No ono oan land on or leave one
of these dooks without paying 83 toll te
Mago, while he alao lovlos a tax on aU
freight He also owns valuable mines
and tracts of timber. His fortune is estimated at 85,000,000, a;i due to loo
lashes on his baok.—San Francisco Examiner.

THE DIVER'S ARMAMENT.
Foil Description of the Dress Worn by
Hen Who Work Under Water.
If any one has seen a diver in bis sub
marine suit bobbing up from the watoi
with his glistening, immenso round cop
per helmet with his square, clumsy
manflsh-Hke canvas suit, usually
stained hy use, iron rust and sea water
to brownish, yellowish gray, something
tbe color ot a devil-fish, he may at first
have been somewhat startled by the apparition.
The being who thus rises from the sea
is not a mischievous creature, hut on
the contrary a very useful member
of society when his services are required and brought in requisition. A
full description of his dress is something like tbts:
From the helmet projects a coll of
snake-like rubber hose, a sort of antenna, which passes down under hts left
arm and up through the water, connecting with an air-pump on a float-stage or
in a hoat The pump is manipulated by
two men and furnishes compressed air
for breathing when under water, wblcb
exhausts Into tbe water by a valve in
tbe helmet, enabling him to breathe
continually fresh atr, while, when he
comes to the surface, the windows of
his helmet can be opened and he can
breathe without the assistance of the
air-pump.
When he goes down into the water
he has two means of communicating
with those above—the hose and tbe lifeline. By the latter he also descends and
comes up whon neceaaary.
By each of these he gives and receives ' signals mutually understood,
threo sharp pulls on the life-line Indicating that ho is ready to ascend.
In order to overcome the natural buoyancy of bis body and make its specific
gravity such that ho can walk about on
tho bottom of the sea, he wears shoes
with solos heavily ballasted or weighted
with lead.
Tbe upper part of his body Ib protected, as ls alao his lowor halt, by heavy
canvas covering, consisting of jacket,
with nine ves, and pantaloons, with ter
munitions whioh fit closoly, with elastic
bands clinging to bis flesh, the jookoi
fitted closely to tho helmet with metallic bands bolted together, with a burber
gasket betweon.
No water or air oan get to blm, except
the lattor hy the hose, unless ho opotu
the glass windows ot his helmet, which
he Ib not likely to do. unless occasion requires.
Additional weight ts placed at hie
chest and back; sometimes a breastplate and a shoulderplate of lead,
somotimosla belt heavily weighted, which
can bu thrown on or off the shoulders,
and hang down ln front and behind when
ln use.
The experiences of a diver are many
and Interesting. After he has once
reached tho sunken vessel, whether by
being lowered straight down from the
wrecking craft or by walking along the
bottom of tlie oooan to avoid currents, he
must search through tho hull of the ship
aB though she wore floating upon the
surface of tho water.
To do this ho carries a small lamn
with him, wbicn g>ves out a peculiarly
brilliant light whon under the water,
and makes the surrounding object
glisten with all the colors of the rain-
how.
Care must he taken that the air-tube
does not get tangled ln any way, or cut
by friction against the side of the vessel. Unfortunate divers have frequently lost their livos by this means when
exploring the intricate passages ot a
vessel at great depth below bhe surface
of the water.
Danger is also experienced from heavy
pieces of timber, hoxos, barrels and even
dead bodiea, whioh are often floatinp
around In tho hold of a sunken vessel.
A diver, onco tolling of the troubb
that ho had in exploring a wreck, suit
that he was constantly annoyed by sev
oral heavy cheats whioh kept movin;
about with every swell of tho sea. Or.
cume so near his diving-bell that bo wu
forced to give It a violent push, whicl
sent it against tho opposite wall of tb*
small cabin. Instantly it reboundci
and came within nn inch of tho diver*
helmot, which it would have quicklj
broken had it struck it.
But, by dodging in time, the ches>
passed harmlessly over bim, and th*
noxt moment it collided with anothc;
similar chest, The forco of tbo collision broko ono of the hoops of the hugi
box, and the next moment a glittering
pile of newly-stamped gold coins rolled
out upon the floor of tbo cabin.
Tlio chest had been usod as a sort of
treasury box by the captain, and all of
his valuables wore lookod up ln tt Re
sides gold nnd silver pieces of money,
rich jewels and precious stones' escii] ■.
from the brass-bound chest, and pi -
Bonted to tho divor's gaze a rare sipu
Tlie light from his small lamp, shinii-
through the water, made the golov
heup seem brighter than ever.—Golde

The city council last night did some
excellent work, and one motion in particular, regarding the laying of sidewalks, will have the hearty support of
tho whole* city. It wns decided to lay a
throe foot plank walk on the north side
of Melbourne streot from John to Doug-
lns street, and u similar walk ou the east
side nf Douglas street from Melbourne
street to the cemetery. Melbourne
street is to bu completed from Queen's
avenue to the foot of GoHsett street, ami
St. Andrews stroot is to bo made passable from the North Ann road to Pellmm street. The Mary street sidewalk
is to be laid as far as Pelham street, and
the Ellis streot sidewalk generally improved. Besides these all sidewalks are
to bo made where tho lumber has already been laid, except iu such cases
whoro tho streets arc not graded.
Itottl Km I ii In Transfer.
A large real estate transfer was concluded yesterday, by which 144 acres of
the White estate becomes the property
of u well known property owner. The
land in question Hob on the North Arm,
and adjoins the city limits. It has a
frontage on the river of nearly half a
mile and extends back about tite same
distance. The price paid was $100 por
acre, or $14,400 for the \vhoIo. It is understood a portion of this land will bc
subdivided into lots and placed on the
market at on early date. It is worthy
of note that this property just 26 years
ago this month was purchased from the
Government at one dollar per acre. The
transfer is the largest that hns been concluded during tbe past few weeks, but
several moro, even larger, arc now on
the tapis. Real estate is taking un upward turn, and numerous sales are taking place daily.

A resolution was introduced, but uot
carried, at the city council last night,
which will sot many sticklers for retaining old street names in a considerable
state of excitement. The resolution
was as follows: . That Front Street, Columbia Street, Agnes Street and Royal
Avenue retain their present names.
That Queen's Avenue bo changed to
Second Avenue, and parallel streets
northward be called avenues and numbered consecutively, beginning with
Pelham Street, which shall bo Third
Avenue. That lho namo Carnarvon be
applied to the whole street from Elliott
Streot to Hanlan Street; that Columbia
Street extend from Dock Square to the
Brunette Bridge on the North Rond.
Thut Park Lane be named First Street,
and all parallel streets northward be
named Second, Third Street, etc.; except small streets, which ahull have distinctive names. This motion will test
public opinion, and it is now in order to
protest or acquiesce as the case may be
The Weat tttiast Wreck.
• The general opinion at Port Towns-
end is that the vessel reported wrecked
on Vargas Island, noar Olayoquet Sound,
was the Chilian bark Pastoral)na, wliich
sailed from Port Townsend about December 10th, loaded with a cargo of
lumber from Blukcly destined to Chili.
A fow days after the Pastorauza went to
Bea, the captain of the tug Pilot, of Victoria, reported passim*: through acres
and acres of floating lumher nil' Capo
Flattery. The rumored loss of the
Douglas Dearborn, bound lo Philadel-
Shia, oil' the, mouth of the Columbia
liver, gave rise to the opinion that the
lumber was front the lattor vessel. The
Dearborn has been spoken twice since
then, and it is generally believed now
that the wrecked vessel at Clayoquot
Sound iB tho Pastorauza. Noar that
Bound is where the good Bhip St. Stephen went dowu with all hands three
years ago. It is understood that the
cargo of tho Pastorauza. was partly insured. The vessel wus an old wooden
craft and had little or no i nsurance.
TheS.A. Criticised.
Editor Columbian '.—Sir:—Would you
please be kind enough to publish a few
remarks concerning the way I acted before I became a prisoner iu this town,
Well, in the first placo I do not want to
raise myself above the opinions of the
public, out I think I was treated more
tike a renegade tban a man. Although
I took too much of the accursed drink, I
should have been treated as a man in
stead of a dog.
I have been a fellow that cared littlo
about going to church, but wheu tho
Army came around I weut there to huve
some fun, the same as half the people
that go there, and I want to state iu a
concrete form the way it is put to a man
in the Army.
In tho first place, they ask you if you
believe you are a sinner and if Christ
died for sinners; therefore he died for
you, so you must bo saved. Could any
trap for a benighted soul bc more ingeniously planned? It Is not superstition
that ib appealed to this timo; it is reason. The ngituted soul is invited to
creep into the convolutions of a syllogism and entrench itself behind u doctrine' more. venerable even than the
church. But words are mere chitine.
Doctrines may have no more vital contact with n soul than priest or sacrament, no further influence on chnracter
lliun limo and stone, and yot the Army
nick a blackguard from the streets, pass
liim through this plausible formula, and
turn him out a convert in about ton
minutes.
The zeal of lho Army is not to boquos-
tiouod, their instincts nre all right, aud
their work is often not in vain.
It is possible up to a certaiu point to
defend this salvation bv formula. Aro
theso not the very words of Scripture?
Did not Christ Himself say, it is finished?
And is it not written, "By grace you ure
Bftved, through faith?" "Not of'works,
lest any man Bhould boast." And, "He
that believeth ou the Son hath everlast
luff life." To which, however, one
might also answer in the words of the
Scripture: "The devils also believe,"
and "except a man be born again he
cannot see the Kingdom of God."
But without trying to make text re*
fate text, let mo ask what the supposed
convert possoBHes at the end of the process? That Christ saves sinners, oven
blackguards from the streets, is a great
fact, and that the simple words of the
Army sometimes lakes it home to a sin*
tier so ba does become a good citizen
but that don't muko him u good man,
Well, to finish, am not I as good t
citizen and as quiet as the Army? I do
not make a noise when I ntn sober; hut
they do, if you can call it soberness to
march the streets when thoy go out to
call poor drunkards iu, and then not let
tbem in. T. W. Honev,

From tho Water Works committee an
follows:
We met on the 15th inst.at 1 '30 p.m.
in the Mayor's oflice, at which meeting
there were also presont tho Mayor and
members of tbe Works committee, whon
tenders were opened for the supplying
of material and construction of a system
of water works for tho city.
"Fifteen tenders were opened and
examined in detail, two of which included the whole work and the others
tho supplying of the material or a por*
tion of the work or both. The figures
given showed that the original estimate
of tho total cost of tho wator M'orks was
a fair une ut the time it was made, but
sinco that time the cost of the material
has increased considerably and at- the
present time freights are also high, so
that the cost of the work now would
amount to a much larger sum than the
first estimate, and the amount at your
disposal for the work would be inadequate. In view of these facts aud also
tliat ward No. 1 and the greater'part of
wnrd No. 0 has not been included in the
distribution system on which -tenders
were invited, wo would not recommend
that any of thoso tenders bo accepted,
but that other tenders be called for after
a short lime when tho price of material
may he lower us well us freight, and
somo changes may ho made in tlie specifications so as to include the whole city
in the distribution system as well as in
some other particulars, which wo consider will be iu the interests of the city
and tend to make the works more com*
plete and efficient."
