Thu monarchical principle does
not thrive on the virgin soil of the
new world. Lato events and por-
tents in Brazil are furnishing fresh
demonstration of this fact. During
the past two years republicanism
has obtained wonderful strength in
Brazil. The immediate cause of
this is said to be the great unpopularity of tbo crown princess, Pona
Isabel, wife of Prince Louis of Orleans, Oomto d'Eu. This lady
gained the enmity of the landed
proprietors and other classes among
the people by her share in bringing
about the sudden emancipation of
the slaves in May, 1888, without
allowing time for tlie substitution
of voluntary for forced labor in the
fields. Tho crops were unusually
abundant, but mnny of them were
loft to rot owing to the difficulty of
obtaining labor. The oonsequence
was that a very strong feeling was
aroused against the orown princess,
and incidentally against   the whole
royal family.   Ti, rks of repub-
licanisra, which are in be found in
all monarchies, wore fanned into
flame, and for somo timo  past the
The great immigration  question
has long been a matter of  moment
with far-sighted English politicians,
and the Pall Mall Gazette, referring
to the sulijeet, says   that   a   select
committee of the house of commons
foresees   a time when   it will   bo
necessary to enact the alien   law of
the United States.    The large cities,
and especially London, may be said
to  swarm with  foreigners  of  the
most poverty-stricken and degraded
class, many of them  being  refugees
from  foreign   states,   for   political
plotting in their own   lands.   .Such
men find a safe and convenient asylum in London, and not infrequently
repay the hospitality accorded them
by directing their genius in the direction of upsetting the constitution
which protects tbem.    Of this class
Herr Most was a notable  type.    A
walk from Aldgato through Whitechapel,Middlesex street and Hounds-
ditch, taking in, of  course, the adjacent alleys during tbe perambulation, reveals to the observant tourist
a large   urea inhabited entirely by
an immense population, all, or nearly
all, of whom are foreign Jews, most
of whom can speak not a word of English, and half at least of whom speak
dialects which perhaps twenty others
iu a population of   5,000,000   souls
oan barely understand.   This latter
statement is   literally true, as   the
case of Lipski, tried for murder   a
few  years  ago,   proves.      Lipski
spoke a mixture of Polish, Russian,
and low German, a dialect known as
Yuddish, and when put   upon   trial
it was   with the   greatest difficulty
that auy person in the   nie'ropolis
could   bu   found with   a   sufficient
knowledge of this tongue to be able
to interpret the    evidence  lor   the
benelit of the   prisoner.    A   school
teaoher  in  Whitechapel estimates
that in a population of 75,000   persons, 35,000 are foreigners, and   in
Lower Hamlets 75 per cent, of the
population may be put in   the same
category.   Hoxton, Shbreditoli, and
in fact the wholo of the east   end of
London, is one vast foreign   colony,
burrowing   in  cellars like rats or
swarming more thickly than Chinii-
msn do in our western cities, in the
rooms above.    Ten or a dozen   perr
sons, of both sex and   all ages, will
find ample accomodation for  sleeping, eating, working, and all other
purposes, in one  room twenty feet
oy twelve, and when every room in
a house is peopled in   liko  proportion, and street after  street  is  so
crammed with the   human  animal
that there is   positively no  further
room to squeeze in   anothe'r   specimen, it may be imagined   that   the
sanitary condition of the   neighborhood is not all that could be desired.
This picture of the state of the east
end of London is in no respect,  exaggerated, but, indeed, falls fur short
of the horrible reality,    The    node
of    living   of    these    people    is
extremely   wretched,    then-    lond
being  of the scantiest,    They are
willing    to    work     for    next   to
nothing, and the consequence   is   a
tierce straggle for existence,a battle
for   daily bread,   which  none   who
have seen these people can ever forget.    The gin palace is their liomo,
and who can   h ve   the   heart   to
blame them (although to tins   institution is doubtless  traceable   much
of their misery), for, as  a   scarcely
clad woman, with one young   child
at the breast   and   another   at her
skirts, remarked,   ''The stuff  helps
us forget it all now and then."   And
so it goes on, this   undying   battlo
for the barest subsistence, alternated
with the forgetfulness which a penny or two will purchase from the gin
palace,   protected   by the   state, a
life enlivened only by street   lights,
brawls, and   hideous   murder, until
one   almost   repeats   what   Victor
Hugo said of Pa.iis, that  if London
had   eyes, ''every brick would weep
tears of blood."
The Empire, in discussing the
various health and pleasure resorts
of the continent, concludes with the
following: "British Oolumbia is
likely to be generally recognized as
a winter sanitarium of much merit.
Tho winters are sufficiently decided
everywhere to compel the heating
of houses every day in the cold season. Yet many localities aro as
warm us the sea coast of Virginia
and Carolina. Tho sojourner cun
have this equal warmth, wet or dry,
as he wishes. He can choose Viotoria or New Westminster, if he
does not object to abundant rain, or
if ho wants as little wet as possible
he can go to Nanaimo or any other
locality protected from the rainy
winds of the Pacific by the chain of
mountains running lengthwise
through Vancouver Island. In
fact, British Oolumbia affords, within a radius of a hundred miles, every
condition of heat, cold, dryness and
wet to bo found in the Dominion.
The chronic invalid, if he doesn't
know what is best for Lim, can shift
himself from zero frosts to the baltri-
ncs3 of Southorn Franco in loss than
a day's travel I" In so few words,
our cotemporary gives a fair general
view of the merits of British Oolumbia, and of tho different sections
mentioned, as a winter sanitarium.
British Oolumbia is unquestionably
ono of tho healthiest and most agreeable countries to live in that could
bo mentioned, and not only in winter, but all tho year round. It would
existence of the empire has been in
danger.   The  emperor, Dom Pedro
II., who succeeded his father so far
back as 1831, is  now   advanced in
years, and the thought that his place
will soon bo filled  by his  daughter
is one that a very large section   of
the people refuse to entertain.   This
feeling has manifested itself in many
extraordinary ways of late.    Only
recently, during   the ceremony of
conferring diplomas at the imperial
school of medicine, one of the leading professors of the institution appealed  to the emperor, in a speech
which was enthusiastically applaud-
ed, to withdraw into private life, in
order to permit the establishment of
a republic.     At the last convention
of an organization of veterans, similar to the Grand Army of the Republic   in the United States, the
Comte d'Eu, who presided by virtue
of his  office as commander-in-chief
of the army, was greeted on taking
the chair with cries of "Viva la re-
publica."   Subsequently, whilst visiting the northern provinces for the
purpose of carrying   relief   to   the
famine   sufferers, he  was   received
everywhere with hostility, and was
accused by the press  of making the
journey  solely to  gain   popularity.
Just before the dissolution of parliament last summer, too, one  of   the
most prominent members   closed an
eloquent speech with the cry, "Down
with the monarchy I  Long live tho
republic I" and was tumultously applauded by a large   number   of his
hearers.    Theso incidents  illustrate
the depth and extent of republican
sentiment   in   the   empire.      The
enemies of the monarchy are   to be
found chiefly among the landed proprietors and  agriculturists, and the
traders and merchants.    The press,
too, is largely on their  side,  overy
paper in   Rio do Janeiro, with   one
exception, professing the   most   ardent republicanism.   So far has the
movement gone, in fact, that a. candidate for the position of first president of the republic   of Brazil   has
been selected, and  the   emperor   is
almost daily appealed to in the press
to abdicate in his  favor.    The government, realizing its   danger   and
that of the monarchy, wont to the
people at tho elections   last  month
with a programme   specially designed to win them back.    It promised
universal   suffrage, free   education,
the antonomy of provinces nnd municipalities,   absolute   freedom    of
creed and conscience, reorganization
of the senate, abolition  of  customs
dues on   exports, increase of   railroads and other facilities for  transportation, and the creation of  land
banks and credit establishments designed to afford financial aid to the
farming, manufacturing, and trad-
classes.     This   liberal   programmo
probably   had    something    to   do
with    the   result   of    the   elections,   which    were  overwhelming
in   favor of   the government, notwithstanding tho increasing republican sentiment. Good authorities say,
however, that the government victory
was more largely due  to judicious
manipulation of patronage,  and to
the display of military forco throughout the campaign.    Such means  of
achieving success will naturally have
the ultimate   effect  of stimulating
rather than discouraging republicanism.   The position of the  government, notwithstanding its apparent
strength, is   thus really precarious,
for, in  tho present  temper of the
people,  any arbitrary proceeding is
almost certain to lead to revolution.
Tlie chances are considered to   be
ten  to one, at all   events, that the
ompiro will not outlive the present
emperor, and he cannot have a vory
long lease of life.

—3"""'Tfniiftvii
be a mistake to suppose that  there
are not many countries and localities
which it is just as  desirable, in the
interests of comfort and  health, to
get out of during the summer  as in
the winter,   Aud British Oolumbia
offers an almost  perfect  asylum in
either case.    If  the winters  are
mild, equable, and of short duration
—utter strangers to   the wild  blizzards, cruel  frosts,   terrible  snow
storms, and five months'  blockades
of eastern and interior countries—so
are the summers balmy and delightful—the fierce heat, with its  attendant prostration and inevitable sunstroke, so common in many parts of
the  continent,   being  happily unknown  in  this   favored   province.
British Columbia has long possessed
the climatic advantages that give
her such a premium over the greater
part of this continent ut least, but
the  world is just beginning to find
it out.     The now rapidly becoming
famed salubriousness of the Pacific
province is destined to be a very important factor in the speedy settling
up and development of tlie country.
A healthful  and agreeable climate
the year round  is un asset that is
not to be despised, oven when compared with more substantial advantages, of which the province also has
its full share.    The  resources   and
advantages of this   province, which
have been "under  a bushel," so   to
speak, are becoming  better   known
every day, and the next few   years
will witness such an accession to our
population and wealth  as will   outstrip the   sensible   growth   of   the
whole former period of the country's
history.      The   various   cities will
reap   largely in   this   harvest,   especially those that are   wide-awake
enough to prepare to gather it.    Nature has done  much for all of them,
but for none more than for tho royal
city.    With its beautiful   southern
slope, charming   surroundings   and
delightful climate, all   that   is   required is the   turning   of   these to
account,   by    supplementing     the
dower of nature with tho   improvements and   adornments   of  art, to
make this city the most   attractive
in the province and on the coast for
the   health, wealth,   and    pleasure
seeker.   To this end all street, park
and pleasure ground improvements,
the introduction of water works and
tho   construction  of   new   railway
lines,   tend;   and,  considering the
certain future   in   store, for Westminster, dependent in a largo   measure on the   practical   appreciation
of the fact by her citizens, all money
judiciously expended on the objects
above enumerated and for  kindred
purposes must in a short time ropay
its expenditure fourfold,

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The New York Press says that
the heads of the Vanderbilt family
are as literally immersed in businoss
affairs as any tallow chandler within a mile of their magnificent homes.
They work us many hours a day as
their father did when conductor on
a railway, and almost as many as
their grand-parents when the one
poled a (latboat and tho other tended bar.
Edison, discussing the electric
light wire danger, says that "low
pressure is tho only remedy." Plao
ing the wires underground will result eventually in driving the danger
into the manholes, stores and houses.
High pressure currents are used
solely to save investing in copper
wiro, and therefore the companies
who refuse to adopt low pressure
are saving money at the expense of
life. 	
In Louisville, Ky., a few days ago
there was u strange proceeding in
pursuance of Mosaic law. A Jew
had died without issue, and in such
cases the Mosaic law requires that
his brother shall marry the widow
and raise up children inthe name of
Ihe deceased. But in this case the
lady objected to marrying the brother. Tho only lawful alternative
was a divorce, and the ceremony of
divorcing the woman from her dead
husband was porformed by two orthodox rabbis, who were summonod
from Chicago for the purpose.
Those who attended to witness the
strange scene were charged 25 cents
admission.     	
Paul du Ohaillu differs with many
leading historians ns to tho social
condition of the vikings, the direct
ancestors of the English-speaking
people, whom he believes to have
been well civilized. He insists that
"tho people who were then spread
over a great part of the present
RusBia, who overran Gertnania, who
knew the art of writing, who led
their conquering hosts to Spain, into tho Mediterranean, to Italy,
Sioily, Greece, the Black sea, Palestine, Africa, and even crossed the
broad Atlantic to America, who
wero undisputed masters of the sea
for more than twelve centuries, wero
not barbarians," and concludes: "Lot
thoso who uphold tho contrary viow
produco evidenco from arclueology
of any indigenous British or Gallic
civilization w jich surpasses that of
tho North,"
.  SrAKIA'S WEDDINO.
Athens, Oct. 28.—The day was a
most beautiful one, tho sun shining ns
it shines only in Greece, and all the elements seeming to concur in tho huppy
auspices of the wedding of Prinoesn
Suphia of Germany to the Duke of
Sparta. A gorgeous precession, escorted by an imposing array of cavalry,
loft tho roynl palace at 11 o'clock.
Tho guests occupying the carriages comprised the Emperor and Emprosa of
Germany, tho Empress Frederick,
King and Queen of Denmark, Princo
and Princess of Wales, Princesses Victoria and Maude of Wales, Mario of
Greece and Victoria and Margaret of
Prussia; Prince Victor of Wales, Prince
of Meoklebiburg-Sohwerin. Hereditary
Prince and Princess of Saxe-Meiniu-
gen, and other members of the royal
families, besides a goodly number of
people of only less exalted rank. Following tho lino of carriages came a
maguitioent stnto carriage drawn by aix
prancing blackchargers, and containing
Queen Olga of Greece and tho blushing
bride. The moat brilliant nf all the
brilliant uniforms adoi-nini: the presence of loyally was that of tho Emperor William, which as well as the robes
of tlio Empress, fairly blazed with diamonds. Thero was great enthusiasm
aii'Hing the 'people, who thickly crowded the route of procession. Tlio wed-
ing service was elaborate, and occupied
au entire hour. Afterwards the cor
tegc returned by different rbute-i,
amid scenes of unabated demonstrat-
iveneas on tlm part of tho populace.
The marriage wns then solemnized
agiihi according to the simplo Lutheru
rite in the king's private chapel. At 4
o'clock in the afternoon the Duke of
Sparta brought his wifo from the royal
palace to his own palace amid tlio
cheers of the people. Tho bride, pnlo
but smiling graciously; acknowledged
tho greetings of tho throng with becoming grace. All the diplomats present in Athens were invited to tho bun-
quel in honor of the occasion to-night
nt tlie duke's palace. It, was a brilliant
affair and the display of wedding presents wus dazzling. Chiof among these
were the gifts of tho czar, consisting of
a set of brilliants, a silver and crystal
tea set, and a captain's uniform of Iho
Neva regiment tor tho duke.
THE KAISER AT ATHENS.
Athens, Oct. 2S.—lierr Bnlaman,
marine painter, is in tlio suite of
Kaiser Wilhclm during hia trip in tho
oast of Europe and came with him to
this city. Ho was very busy all dny
Saturday and yestorday in making
sketches of animated and picturesque
scenes in the harbor of the Pirceus
and in Atheras. All the episodes attending the wedding Herr Snlsnian
made sketches, Tho aervicea at the
outranco to the cathedral were imposing, thousands of privileged spectators
wero ranged in acini-circular ascending
rows us at n {theatre. Opposite the
main entrnnco the appearance of this
vast crowd was impressive in the highest degree. The marriago sorvice ia a
vory long and exhausting function und
the king ordered the curtailment of it.
This wus a very good action, for thero
aro no seats and the crowd of
persons present made the hoat
very great and tho atmosphevovery uncomfortable. Tho array of priestly
oflicers in their rich roboa and paraphernalia mudo a gorgeous  spectacle.
.   THE GREAT AGITATOR.
London, Oct. 28.—Mr. Tillett, the
able lieutenant of John Burns in tho
recent London dockmen's strike, is
carrying on a vigorous socialist propaganda and work of organization in
the large cities of the united kingdom.
His latest and most successful efforts
have boon at Bristol. To-day he addressed a monster mass meeting of
workmon in that city. Competent observers placo the number of his listeners at C0,000. Tillett urgod tho benefits of combination, and held out glowing prospects of success based on tho
result in the case of the doekmeii. His
remarks wero not addressed to any
particular class of workmen, but applied equally to nil traders. It is noteworthy that regular radical socialists
do not givo a hearty support to tho
movomont initiated by Burns and
Tillett. A slight increase of wages, involving greater contentment on the
part of the workers with tho wage system, has no charms for out and out
socialists, who would on the contrary,
■o arouse discontent with the whole
existing social fabric as to hasten its
total overthrow, and tho establishment
of universal co-operation. Burns and
Tillett havo, therefore, been almost
read uut of tiie socialist party by roa-
son of iheir having descended to practical methods.

miss Huntington's wedding.
London, Oct. 28,—Princo Hatzfeldt
and Miss Clara Huntington, adopted
daughtor of Mr. 0. P. Huntington,
were married this morning at Brampton oratory. Tho ceremony was neoos-
sarily semi-private on account of the
brief time allowed for tho arrangements and because of the absence of
many friends of the family from tho
city. About a hundred special guests
were present in tho oratory, which had
been sumptuously decorated with rich
draperies and growing plants. Prince
Hermann Hatzfeldt was best man nnd
the bride was given away by her fath-
father. Miss Ehrrall, of Washington, was the only bridesmaid.

,    LABI1Y AMUSES THE SCOTS.
London, Oct, 26.—Henry Laboii-
choro ia stumping Scotland with considerable effect and hia speeches have
elicited the genernl approval of the extreme radicals. Their programme, as
enunciated by Labouchere,is now definitely formulated. It includes the
"onu man, one vote," principle, or
universal suffrage scheme of triennial
and not septennial parliaments. Disestablishment of tho church, accompanied by its diseudowineiit, the funds-
now diverted to ecclesiastical purposes ro bo taken for secular uses in
tho administration of the empire.
Such changes in the land laws as
would lend, ultimately, to tho extinction of great land-owning families and
divide their tremendous possessions no-
oording to tho theory of more even
distribution of property. Mr. Liibuu-
ohere was cheered fervontly on one
occasion when ho declared, "Wo will
mnke such a change iu land laws that
laudlurds will not recognize tho country utter wo hnvo put, our hnnda in it."
Another radical point is lho compulsory snlo of town leui.e holda for tho
huusitiK "f the poor.
STORMY  POLITICS.
Montreal, Oct. 20.—Tlm Club National of the Liberals held the stormiest
meeting in tlieir history lust evening,
soveral prominent members nenrly
coming to blows. It wub hugely ntteuded by thu leading men of the
paity, and there was a wordy war for
about two hours' duration botween the
two factions, ono made up of the irreconcilable of tho rouge Liberal sohool,
and tho other of the Nationalists
friendly to Mr. Morcior's government.
Tlioro wus an organized effort made to
oust Mr. p. Leboouf, tho president,
for having condemned Mr. Morcior's.
alliance with the Castors and it succeeded.
MYSTERIOUS HAPPENINGS.
Quebec, Oot. 2fi.—The parishioners
of the adjacent parish of St. Catherines, Port. Nouf, are greatly excited
over the mysterious happenings in connection with tho recent lire at (ho parish church. It seems that a (lame

and it iB ovon assorted that a table

quest of the church authorities, the
cardinal has sent up Monsignor Uuinol
and a couple of his othor household
clergy to investigate the matter.
Mainland vs. Island.
It looks bb though Vancouvor Island
was to have an exhibition of its own.
It remains to bc soen whether it is a
wise move or not. The provinco eould
have ono good show eaoh yonr, but
when it comes to supporting two there
is room for doubt. The action of the
Mainland, however, has forced this
course upon tho Island, and while wo

Appointed silpi'uilliii-y lUaKisti'nte.
His Honor Judge Bolo has boon appointed a stipendiary magistrate for
the province of British Columbia. This
appointment is to bo commended on
tho grounds that it affords persons
having important casos the opportunity of having them triod beforo n corn-
potent tribunal. Tlio muddling of
justico at Port Moody last wool;, in
connection with the chicken stealing
case, shows the importance of appointing only competent men to tho magistracy, so that it will not become a nub-
ject of ridicule and mockery.
Cruelty lo Animals.
A team of horses attached to a wag-
ou containing two bales of hay, triod
to drag the vehiclo up McKonzio street
this aftornoon. Tho load was not
heavy, but tho horses woro ovidontly
unablo to oopo with it, in fact thoy
seemed completely tired. The driver,
to romody this defect on the part of tlio
horsos, laid on the whip unmercifully.
Sevornl starts woro made, tho usual
result boing thnt tho wagon slipped
baok a yard or two. Sovoral gentlemen expressed themselves strongly on
tho subjeol, and said it wns one of the
worst oases of cruelty to animals thoy
had soon in a long timo. No polico
wero in sight or a stop might havo
been promptly put to tho disgraceful
exhibition.
l*roiiimiicci! Insane.
Jilriiest Gruuox is a Fro^cliuiaii and
ho is also crazy. He has been hanging
around town for about two weeks and
has had meals at the jail on more than
one occasion. Ho called at that resort
again on Saturday and his actions woro
so strango that Gov. Moresby sent him
down to tlie polico station in charge of
an oflicer. Yesterday Drs. Smith nnd
I. M. MoLean thoroughly examined
tho man and pronounced liim insane.
Grauex was taken buck to the gaol,
where ho will remain until tho asylum
is ready. His mania takes tho form of
complaints of injustice against everybody ho can think of, but ho is uover
violent or dangerous.
FELL HEAD.
Au Indian E-'allH Head on lhc Slreet tills
Afternoon.
Shortly aftor 3 o'clock this afternoon
nu Indian, whoso namo oould not bo
learned, suffered an attack of hemorrhage of the lungs and dropped doad
on tho streets. Ho was walking quietly down Columbia streot in the direction of tho Bwamp, having just bought
a pioco of meat for his dinner, and was
on tho Bidowalk near tho Cleveland
hotol when tho attaok oamo on. An
eyewitness of the snd occurrence says
tho Indian suddenly stopped, and an
instant later a How of blood rushed
from his mouth and nostrils; he thon
fell dowu and to all appoaranco was
doad beforo tho first person reached
liim. Dr. Fagan happened to pnBS the
spot a few minutes afterwards and on
examination pronounced the man dead.
The polico wero notified and removed
tho body to tho city look-up, where it
will remain until a coroner's inquest
is held, if Buch proceeding is determined on as necessary.
Another Challenge.
The lacrosso match of Saturday did
not givo much satisfaction to the
poople of the Roynl City although it delighted many hundred Vancouvorites.
But for the fact that Cullon's lacrosse
broko it is hardly possiblo that Van-
oouvei'»would have scored during tho
match." However, the match was decided a draw and it remains with the
tenuis to fight tho battle over again.
Tlio Westminster men are not content
to allow tho championship to remain
disputed and nccurdiiigly have decided
on the following challenge which will
be delivered to-night:

Sm: On behalf of the Westminster
Lacrosse Club I heroby challenge tho

will play your club ou any day within n
reasonable period.
Should your club refuso to accept this
challenge within three days from date, I
will claim for the Westminster olub the
championship of tho province.
J. R. Polley, Captain.
This will settle the matter ono way
or the otlier. If Vancouver wishes to
retain the championship it can only do
so by defeating Westminster in the
field. The conditions are fair and
reasonable, and no just exception can
bo taken to them. Lot Vancouver
como to the scratch and havo the championship Settled in a manly way; Westminster will olaim tho honored title
with great reluctance should there bo

CORRESPONDENCE.
Mr. i'nnntnglinui'g Veracity.
Editor Columbian—Sir:—You printed on Friday a letter from Mr. Thomas
Cunningham, iu which he statos that
"parties working in tho interest" ef Mr.
Corbould nro circulating a report that he
hns agreed to withdraw in that gentleman's favor; and Mr. Cunningham proceeds to denounce tho report as a discreditable election dodge, and states that ho
was asked to withdraw aud emphatically
irefii5ed to do so.
Now, I wish to use no hard words, and
to the first charge simply say, it is not
the truth, and challenge Mr. Canning-
ham to produco his informant.
As regards the second charge, the facts
arc these: Mr. Thoa. Cunningham, in
conversation with me, before the requisition to Mr. Corbould was circulated,
volunteered to retiro if Mr. Corbould
camo out, saying he would hold up both
hands for him, or words to that effect,
After the requisition to Mr. Corbould
was started, Mr. Gamble and myself
waited upon Mr. Cunningham, uot to ask
him to retire, but to givo him a chance to
keep his voluntary promise, and then he
did emphatically refuse to redeem that
promise, a course of action which did not
greatly eurpriso us.
I then nsked Mr, Cunningham, in the
presencoof Mr. Gamble, whether or not
he had voluntarily told mo tliat if Mr.
Corbould would como out ho would retire. He at once said: "Yc3,1 did say
so; but I won't do it now." Wo then
left him, saying it made no difference,
I will leave tlio public to judge who
has acted discreditably.
Mr. Cunningham lias published just
enough of tho truth to mislead;
C. G. Major,

Mr. George Hutchison, nf Endcrby,
arrived down last night with a carload
of hogs, wliich wero sold to Victoria
dealers. Ho reports the establishment
of a now industry at Enderby—a pork
packing faotory—by a Winnipeg gentleman tunned Knight. The buildings
will bo erected at A. L. Fortune's
ranch, nnd it is oxpeeted tiiey will be
ready for the commencement of work
iu abbot one month's time. Mr.
Knight, besides packing pork in bar-
rels, will cure and smoke hams, and pro-
pare tbo genus hug in n variety of forma
for tho market. This industry isan important one for tie distriot, as it will
open a profitable homo market to tho
raiiohers. Owing to tho low prico of
wheat the farmers have commenced tlio
raising of hogs on a largo scale, and as
it is possible to extend tho business to
an extent only limited by the size of
the availablo markets for tho product
of tho curing establishment, tho pork
industry will probably assume very
largo proportions iu tbo Spnllumclicen
country within the next few years.
The woather iu lhe neighborhood of

probablo that thoy will soon be curried into the vory thickest of a great
legal battlo. Davio and Bodwoll aro
color-bearers for Mr. Gorrio and have
entered the lists armed cap-a-pie iu a
complete suit of Blockstono's famous
armor. Who will pick up the gauntlet for Westminster has not yet beon
decided, but several knights of the
wig aro both willing and anxious to
break a lance for the honor of the
royal city and the benelit of their private purses. It appears that several
of Mr. Gorrio's new standards were
lost on the voyage between Victorin
nnd Westminster, and he is determined either to recover them or get
revonge financially., The prospects
aro that the fight will bo a merry ono,
and fluga will probably be cheap beforo it is over.
GoliU-u Wedding.
At Upper 3'uinas, to-day, Mr. and
Mrs. E. B. Ackerman celebrated the
fiftieth anniversary of thoir wedding.
Every iillative of the family inthe
provinco was invited to bo present at
the reception to-day, und very fow of
them wore sbaent. The venerable
couple wore united in the bonds of
matrimony, in Pennsylvania, just 50
years ago. They ure a remarkably
hnle old couple yet, and give promise
of living to enjoy many more anniversaries of their wedding. Mr. and
Mrs. Ackermeu wore lhe recipient*-) of
numerous valuable and bountiful presents from their sous, daughters and
grandchildren, na woll ua from many
friends uf ihe family, The aged couplo
come to Britiah Columbia ubout leu
years ngiv and settled ut Upper Sumas,
where they aro generally loved and
respected by the wholo community,
The Columbian joins in extending
heartiest congratulations.

A mooting of all the county court
judges of tho province will bo held iu
this eity ou November Sth, for the purpose of drawing up now rules of procedure for the county court,, as provided
fnr by tho county court unt. Circulars
have boon issued to tlm members of the
legal .profession asking for suggestions
with respect to the now rules, ns it has
been found iu practice tlint very considerable amendments to tho existing
rules are imperatively required, and all
the more so us we ore now virtually entering upon a now era iu the administration of justico in our provincial
courts. Few peoplo nro awaro that tho
jurisdiction iu contract and tort extends to §1,000, and in equity to $2,-
500, nml cases involving any amount
may bo tried in tho county cou: ts by
consent. By this it will be soen that
in futuro the bulk of the litigation of
tho country will bo disposod of in tho
county courts, bo that tho framing of
propor rules is a niatter of grent public
importance.

The ohollongo to the Vancouver
lacrosso club has been delivered and a
reply is anxiously awaited us the Westminster men are desirous of resuming
practices without loss of time should
the terminal cily men docido to play
tho mnteh. It ia generally hoped Vancouver will accept and thus settle the
championship matter definitely.
Mr. Eyiill, who arrived from  Bran
don last week and played in Saturday's
match, entered upon hi", duties with
1). S. Curtis Ss Co. this morning. He
is a valuable acquisition to the lacrosse
team and his coming was very opportune.
Mr. McDonald, whoso brilliant
playing was so generally admired on
Saturday, ia likely to remain in WestminBter. Several gentlemen are said
to have offered him lucrative employment, but Mr. McDonald will not decide for a week or two whether he will
remain or not. It is hoped he will
stoy. It is understood Mr. McBean
will leave for home in a few days.

Where nre the Luhslcrs ?
Tlie question is often asked "when
is the fisheries department going to
send that carload of Jive lobsters to
British Columbia?" It waa understood
thai the lobsters, after the failure last
year, would be brought out early this
aeaaon, but nothing lias been heard on
the subject of lute. Tho American
govornment made a complete succeas
of transplanting tho caustacou from the
Atlantic to the wators of Puget Sound,
and many experts believe thnt if the
lobsters wero only planted in the
numerous inlots along tho coast British
Columbia would soon have n lobster
fishery second only in value to tho salmon fisheries. A fow years ngo Mr.
Mowat, inspector of fiaheries, and
Oapt. Pittendrigh made a careful examination of tho north arm of Burrard
lnlot and found the conditiona, both as
to temperature and food, highly satisfactory, which report may be seen in
tho fisheriea blue book of that year.
No move htiB been made during the
preaent year in the direction of stocking these waters with lobsters, and it
is to be hoped the government will
turn attention to this mutter at an early
date:

Last night at tho Farmer's Homo an

died of heart disease. Mr. Cbarteris
was quite well last night it eleven o'clock, although slightly under the influence of liquor, and retired to rest
asking that he migJi. oo called at six
o'olook this morning. Mr. Clinrteris
used ro be a prosperous wholesale manufacturer of cloths and woollens-at
Huddersfield, Yorkshire, England, and
met in hia later years in that city with
several heavy reverses and finally failed. He was eminently nnlittr-d tor life
in this country and tool: his hard fortune greatly to heart. Ho worked-at
anything lie could get, day laboring,
canvassingfor orders for liro extinguishers, usher in the assize court and such
work. But even in those humble vocations the air of former dignity and
respectability never left him, and he
was easily picked out from a group of
"horn'' handed sons of toil" as not one
of them. He waa a man of lino physique anct was u well-known figure on
our streets. Ho oamo to this country
about fourteen montha ago, and has a
son in-Victoria who has been telegraphed for.. Drs. Cooper and Fngnn wero

Editor Colombian,—Sim If I may
be permitted to write tvfe-w lines, on
early closing, to the mere-bouts, through
tbe columns of your valuable paper, you
will not only oblige the undersigned, but,
also, I have no doubt,.the majority of
the clerks ill the eity.
As it is well known the average clerk
works from seven in tho morning till ten
at night, (with the exception of thoBe
employed in the dry gooda stores) and
taking oil' an hour, ate noon and nt eve,
for meals, it leaves eleven hours steady
work, which is longar hours than in any
other work iu the city. Tlie early closing system, whioh some of the dry goods
atores in tliia city have adopted, is one
which their clerks feel deeply thankful
for, yet if Saturday afternoon were given, also, they wonld be able, to engage
in athletic sports,, with the other young
men of the town, thereby refreshing
thomsolvos, ain! getting exeroise, which
Is needful for ths hoaltb of man. Not
only of tho dry goods merchants, do I
nsk this, linl; more especially of' those
employed inthe grocery lino In Vancouver, if I mistake not, the principal
stores close ou Saturday awernoon.
Thanking you for your space, Mu. Editor,
and with a hope of soon seeing the suggestion herein contained, carried out.—I
remain- One Who Would Fi;i-:l Thank-

THE OCCUPATION   OP   TUNIS.
Paris, Oct. 21. - In u letter published
in L'issKifi-lle to-day, M. Jules Ferry
says that, tho occupation of Tunis by
tho French was expected by the English govornmont uftor England's fovci-s
had occupied Cyprus and thnt audi action wus also foreseen by Italy. M.
Ferry also says that while ho was in
office he made no engagement with
Prime Minister Crispi, of Italy, concerning Tunis. Continuing, ho saya
that in July, 1SS0, the Italian oovern-
ment conniutnieuted with M. Do Froy-
oinet, then premier of France, with regard to the compensation to bo mado
for tho occupation of Tunis. The communication, however, produced no result. President Carnot is making arrangements for a visit to Algiers.

SCREAMERSVILLE   LUNATICS.
Fredericksburg, Va., Oct. 22.—
Considerable excitement prevails in
the vicinity of Screainersville, Spotsylvania county, nt tlm "Adventists"
camj) meeting in that placo. Those
gathered thore predict that the world
will como to an end to-night, aud if
not to-night, certainly bofore the end
of the month. A number of termers
have left Iheir homes, turned their
stock out on the commons, and are
living at tho Adveutist camp. Others
refuse to work und only go homo at
night. Many have not sown thoir fall
wheat on this account, and say they
will not put a sniede grain of seed in
tho ground ns the Lord is certaiuly
coming this year. About 50 persons
are living at the camp waiting patiently and confidently for the end of the
world.
married the family.
Buffalo, Oct. 22.—In 1882 Jacob
Schwinn was shocked to hear of his
wife's elopement with Chas. A. Boeck.
The couple wont to Hamilton, Ont.,
but afterwards settled in Toronto,
where Boeck kopt an umbrella store.
Schwinn instituted divorce proceedings, but the matter was dropped and
Schwinn died, leaving Iub property to
Betsy and Laviuia Schwinn, his daughters. About two months ngo Boeck
camo hero from Toronto and abducted
Lavinia, a girl about 18 years of ago.
The othor daughter, who is much
youngor, was takon seven years ago.
Laviuia had been living with Mr.
Wagner and Mrs. William Schwinn,
her uncle and aunt. A sequel has
now taken place, the girl Lavmia, it is
said, having married Boeck, laving
the mother out in the cold. Boeck
and the girl ure reported to havo visited Buffalo, obtained some of her
clothing nnd then dopartcd. The proporty left to tho girls cannot be touched until they reach tlieir majority.
Mrs. Schwinn, their aunt, is trustee
of the estate. It is thought that Mrs
Jacob J. Schwinn will probably return
to Buffalo. Tho elder daughter, Lavinia, will soon cumo into possession
of her own property, as sho is now 18
years of age. She will take care of her
younger sister, Bessie,
i hanged.
Pottsville, Pa., Oct. 23—Peter
Baronowa was hanged in jail here thiB
morning. The drop fell at 10:35.
The following is a brief history of the
crime: On Saturday, May 12th, 1888,
Baronows went to the house of Anthony Putlavish and Miss Mary Neil.
He previously boarded at the house for
a short time, and was known to the
two women. What transpired between
them is not fully known, liarouows
in his confession stated he went to the
house, askod Mrs. Putlavish for something to ent, which she refused and ordered him leave, at the sumo time
striking hiin with a poker. This enraged him and he struck her with a
rock, killing her. Ho afterwards took
monoy from a trunk and set firo to the
houso. Ab ho waa leaving Miss Noil
ran into the house nnd snid she would
have him arrested. He knocked hor
down and her body with thnt of the
other woman wns consumed in the
burning building. On tho ovening of
tho murder Baronows made some purchase ut ?- store nnd showed considerable *r"*nrty »l*on pnvinf- for the articles. This caused suspicion, as he
was never known to hnvo much money
before. On the 18th of May he was
arrested near Manck Chunk while on
the way to Buffalo, nnd was brought
back and committed to jail Nov, 19th.
His trial cume up and ho was sentenced
to bo hanged. Evor since conviction
he has beon partly boreft of reason,
chiefly, it is believed, through fear of
his impending fate. He had neither
money nor friends, but tho court appointed counsel to defend him, and
they did everything in thoir powor to
savo his lifo. Ho wns 27 years of ago,
born in Salicia, Austria, and camo to
this country four yenrs ago. Ho could
not speak English.
A LITTLE UNPLEASANTNESS.
Louisville, Oct. 23.—A Bpeciul to
tlio Posl from Piuevillu, Ky., says:
"The trouble which has been browing
in Harlan oonnty for nomo limo past
betwoon tho Turner and Howard factions has broken out in earnest and a
bloody war is in progress. Jessie
Howard and Joe Blair arrived here
this morning from Harlan court liouse
bringing particulars of a fight which
occurred there yosterday. William
Howard has gathorcd about him 25
men and has openly defied tho authorities. He threatened destruction to
tho entire Turner faction and Howard
und his men were entrenched in nn improvised fort on Poor Fork near Harlan court house. Judgo Lowia with
40 men, mostly Turner sympathizers,
essayed to capture the gang, surrounded thu rendezvous, and quietly waited
foe Howard and his inou to make their
appearance. As aoon as the lattor sallied forth, they wore tired upon, and a
bloody battlo followed. Tho Howard
party suffered from the first volley,
uno ni.in being kiliod and six of tho
party badly wounded. Will Howard
hud a hall plow a furrow around his
neck. His brother, John Howard, recoived the contents of a gun and will
die. Two of Judge Lowis's men wero
wounded. Both sides drew away, and
Judge Lowis had his mon fortified in
tho court houso. Will Howard is
gathering moro men and threatens to
make un attack on tho town.
NORTH CAROLINA NEGROES   ALL   RIGHT,
Raleigh, Q. 0., Oct. 23.—Governor Fowler to-day opened the colored
state fair here, and spoko to a lurgo
nndienco of negroes. He referred to
tho Chicago negroes' action in appointing a day of fasting and prayer for
southern negroes, and said that his
auditors were aa happy aa any
people on tho face of the earth.
Ho protected all their rights nnd
ho pledged them tho wholo power of
the stato to be exercised in tlieir behalf, just as much us in behalf of the
white men. The sentiment of the
negro towards the white, ho said, in
the south is kindly, und this is reciprocated. Negro schools and asylums
ill North Carolina uro na well cared for
as those of the whito people. The
Chicugo negroes who have sought to
set apart a day of fasting and humiliation will novor enjoy the samo attributes of freedom as the North Carolina
negroes. They nover evon seo the in-
Bido of a jury box. The governor
touched upon the negro exodus, and
said the negroes wero freo to go whero
they wished nnd would carry with thom
the best wishes of tho whito people, to
whose women and children they have
oeen so devoted during the late war;
but they would, in going, leave a state
where they were better protected and
happier than anywhere else. The
Rov. Mr. Leak, colored, secretary of
tho fair, endorsed Governor Fowler's
remarks, wliich were frequently applauded. Rev. Mr. Leak said that
the negroes' rights were more fully
protected in North Carolina than anywhere he knew of. He heartily denounced the exodus, saying that the
negro agents who were urging it wero
paid so much per head for each negro
whom they induced to emigrate.
THE WHALES SAFE.
New Bedford, Mass., Oct. 24.—A
despatch in the morning papers state
fears are felt in official circles at Washington for the safety of the Arctic
whaling floet, owing to a communication from Captain Healy, of the revenue steamer Bear, which left Point
Barrow on August 10th, just aB the
ice was closing in at that place. These
fears wore dispelled, however, by tho
receipt of advices which state that the
steamer Thetis, uow at Ounalaska, and
which was as far east as the Mackenzie
river, ou August 20th, four days later
than when the Bear left, got through
nil right by Point Barrow. The whaling schooners Cricket and Thresher
were east of the Mackenzie river on
September 10th and will probably
winter there.

The Times has it on good anthority
that a possibility exists of the steamers
running between thiB province and
China and Japan, being temporarily
withdrawn. At least it looks that
way. Report states, and has done so
for some days, that an order was issued a short time ago to agents instructing them to book no passengers
for China and Japan and to take no
freight for those destinations after the
arrival ot the Port Fairy which is due
at Vancouver the 22nd of November,
This is a disquieting rumoi and as a
consequence a great deal uf speculation ia going on among the company's
employees, who know of the proposal;
ns to the cause, different reasons are
suggested. A plausible one is as follows: The parties who own the presont
line of stoamers on the route, Sir Wm.
Pearce and others, are connected with
ono of tho groat shipbuilding linns of
Glasgow. This firm expected to re
ceive the contract for the new steamers
which was lot a fow days ago, and failing to do so, consider thot the C. P.
It. Co. has broken faith with them.
Thoy have therefore notified tho railway company of their determination
to terminate tho contraot of the tranB-
Pacifio stoamors, which will naturally
produce a great deal of inconvenience
to the lattor.   The stcamcro, boing an
inf*-.i*lor nlti'ip, havo not hrsnn dn>nf| ^n
business recently that they did in
starting out on this route, aud in this
anothor reason is furnished for the desire of tho ownorB to vitiate tho contract. Whether tho supposition, based
on the order issued from headquarters,
is correct or not remains to be seen.
