Mouaaa Bey.

detention of Moussa Bey iu Constantinople, and his persecution by Christians
exasperates the Moslems of Armenia by
whom he is regarded aB a model Governor. The Kurdish tribes are in a state

with Martini rifles, of which, it is aaid,
fifty thousand have been introduced into
the province by the connivance of the
authorities. Massacres are feared by

to strengthen her forces on the confines
of Armenia and would be only too ready
to intervene if called upon to protect the
Christian population.
Unprovoked Murder.
Chicago, Feb. 19.—T. Downey, a well-
known hack driver, was shot and probably fatally wounded by H. Murphy,
a bookmaker, about 8 o'clock thiB moruing. Bystanders who witnessed the
shooting say that there was no provocation. Murphy, who is here from Tennessee, on a visit, came out of Hogan's
saloon on State Btreet about 8 o'clock.
With him were Joe Ullmann and Charley Thomas, a wealthy Chicago bookmaker. AU three were more or less
under the influence of liquor. The three
men were on the way to the carriage
waiting for them, when Downey, not
noticing, aBked them if they didn't want
a carnage. "Get away from me,"
Murphy is alleged to bave said, with an
o ith, and without further provocation
drew a revolver and shot Downey in
the cheek, and, as the- unfortunate man fell, fired another shot
in Downey's left side. The three
men then entered their carriage and
were driven rapidly away. Downey was
taken to the hospital, where the physicians expressed the opinion he cannot
live. Murphy and his two friends were
arrested about nine o'olock, and locked
up in Harrison st. station.
Gooney the Pox.
St. Louis, Feb. 18.—-A new and most
Important link has been picked up in
the Cronin murder case, and from all
appearances it is now certain that the
great murder and conspiracy will be
thoroughly exposed. ThiB link consiata
of the arrest of one of the principal
actors in the terrible tragedy. Thia man,
who is* said to have played a more important part than Cooney in the bloody
crime, was arreated In St. Louis last
e vening by Oflicer Thomas, of Central
f tutlon Chicago. Iu an interview with
Detective Thomas it was learned that lie
arrived here six weeks ago in search of
bis man, but found that lie had flown.
The detective has been on hia'trail ever
since, aud Bays he followed him through
nearly every southern city. The man
returned last Sunday and the police arrested him on the street Chief Heib-
lur stated' positively that he is not
"Cooney the Fox." Local member* of
the Clan-na-Gael say they aro unaware
of the presence ln the city of anyone
connected with the Cronin case, and
cannot imagine who the suspect is if he
is not "The Fox." The name of the
prisoner Ib learned to be John B. Kelly.
He was arrested at Fourth and Lucas
avenue In a boarding house. He says
he does not know anything about the
it. alter, and that he never hod any con
nection with tho Clan-Na-Gael. He ia
confident he cannot be convicted in any
way with the Cronin .case. Tho fact
that the prisoner gives his name as
John B. Kelly would indicate that tho
mnn is supposed to be John B. Simons,
the man who rented the Carlson cottage. _„_______________,
VICTORIA NOTES OF THE WEEK.
How A Burglar Managed to Evade the
Penitentiary.—Shipping Items.--•'•'porting Matters and the New Street Kail-
way.
( Front Our Own Correspondent.)
Victoria, Feb. 17.—Not a few events
of more than passing interest have happened during the past week in- this city.
Ab Westminster readers are probably
not very well-informed as to the partic-
lara of a remarkable case of crime that
ooeured here a few daya ago, a perspicuous narrative of the whole alTair
may be of intereat, and readers
diaw their own inferences about the
finale of the story, which was little leBa
startling than the dramatic incidents in
the earlier stages of the crime, Especially should this account be acceptable
at the present time, as the newspapers
here have had very little to sav about
the matter or the extraordinary ch cum,-,
stances of the trial, although -the case
may well be regarded ns one of tlie most
remarkable on the police records of the
city of Victoria. The story is. briefly,
aB follows: Last Thursday morning, a
little after midnight, a burglar entered
the house of Mr. Provost on James Bay
and made so much noise in forcing his
way in at the window that he awoke
that gentleman, who, iu turn, awakened
Mr. Martin, M. P. P., his guest. Together those two gentleman descended
to the kitchen whence the noise proceeded, Mr. Martin with a lighted candle
in his hand, while Mr. Pievost followed
aimed with a revolver. Mr. Martin on
entering the kitchen was startled to see
a man's hand protruding from behind a
m jat Bafe that stood in one corner of the
room. Convinced that he had to deal
with a dangerous peraon he turned to
Mr, PrevoBt and aaked for tho revolver.
Thun he commanded the house breaker
to atand forward and throw up hiB
hundB. Theae orders were obeyed by
the intruder and shorly afterwards he
waa removed to the police station. Now,
to show whether this house breaker got
into that house by mistake or through
tie influence of a wild momentary ini-
mlse of fun or practical joking, it may
iu interesting to note what was found
on his person at tho jail—one derringer
pistol, two large, sharp butcher knives,
one chisel, one Bcrew driver, a piece of
ci.ndle, a number of matches and one
musk. Tho pistol was loaded, the
knives had been freshly sharpened, and
tie screw driver and chisel had been
employed to force open tho window, the
expeditious arrival of the two gentlemen
prevented tlio ignition of matches or
tie mounting ol the mask. But it is
not too much to aay that a clearer caae
ol burglary and house breaking, besides
entering a private inhabited house after
dark with deadly weapons in hiB possession, was never entered in any police
register. And this, leaving out of the
question the crime of carrying concealed
weapons. The case came up for trial,
tl o proceedings were laconically brief.
T.ie indictment for burgalarv was not
p.traued, aB the prosecutor did not appear and the indictment was not complete. On a second charge of carrying
concealed weapoiiB there wns no application to bind over the prisoner to keep
the poaco, so that was also discharged,
u id the prisoner comfortably went his
w ay rejoicing, to tho utter astonishment
of many and the total stupefaction of
others.'
SHII'I'ING  NOTES.
Victoria harbor is busy with the
smaller class of shipping these days. A
number of sealing schooners are being
fitted out for cruises up the coast to follow tho Boai schools. Around the docks
a small army of shipwrights ply their
trade. The Triumph, so badly knocked
about lately, is rapidly nearing completion of her repairs, and will be aB smart
a boat as ever when ready for sea.
THOSE  BTREET CARS,.
Street-car matters are quiet. The
cars were expected to he in full operation before this date, but it is no easy
task to get the intricate machinery of
au electric street railway service in running ordor. The rails laid down nre of a
vory light and unsubstantial description.
They were imported specially from Antwerp, Belgium. From an experience
extending over four years iu this line of
business m a busy eastern city, your
correspondent has, perhaps, some excuse
for offering the opinion that these rails
are too light for tho UBage they will probably get. If a first-class Cumberland
steel flange rail presenting to the
v heel a running surface of nearly two
indies of solid metal, and securely
spiked down to pine stringers, resting
again on heavy ties, bound with iron
k.iees and compactly - ballasted with
gravel and sand, nud topped with square
granite blocks, will last only about
eighteen months or two years under the
traffic of say ten horse-cara, one every
Ave minutes, fifteen hours per day, and
needing during all that time constant
attention and repairs, how long iB a
moulded rail, ono quarter of an inch
thick, looaely tacked down to alight
timbers and primitively ballasted, going
to Btand the wear and tear of electric
cub bearing their heavy motors and
loads of passengers? These questions
may be of some interest to Westminster-
ilea in view of the coining electric street
railway in the Royal City.
Sl-ORTING    MATTERS.
Lovers of sport iu this city got plenty
o' cause for disgust laBt Friday evening,
'lhe much-heralded Qninn-Ric hard son
w rost ling match culminated in a disgraceful fiasco. There was a great deal
oi big talk betweon the two mon and
their backers, but evidently no disposi-
t.on on the part of the former to act
their parts as announced on the bills.
A miserable squabble took place over
tiiestakoB.and tho large crowd which
had assembled to witness the match had
to call and get their money bnck at the
box offlce. To the real lover of legitimate sport it does seem that every professional in the country has become contaminated with tho disgusting lust for
Srearranged contests; '"fakes," "hippo-
roines, "put up jobs," or "cooked
matches," or whatever they may be
called. They aro all after the
dollars, and don't care whether or
not the public is cheated of wliat it pays
to see, namelv a fair, earnest contest.
Arid bo bad has the namo of professional
ohtosts becomo that thoso fellows have
t > resort to the pitiful subterfuge of put-
l.ng ou the bills that "this contest iB
positively for blood," i. e., dead earnest,

Mr. Duck moved, aeconded by Hon.
Mr. Davie, the following resolution:
Whereas, by the terms of union, the
management of the Indian reserves of
the Province was assumed by the Dominion Government, in trnat for the use
and benefit of the Indians; and whereas
the tribe of Indians known as the
Songish tribe, living on the reserve situate on the weat side of the Victoria harbor, are few in number: and whereas
their closo proximity to the City of Victoria is undesirable, and tends to retard
the growth aud prosperity of the said
city, and it is expedient that the said
tribe should be removed to a more suitable locality, and the control of the said
reserve be resumed by the Provincial
Government: be it therefore resolved,
that a respectable address be presented
to his honor the Lieutenant-Governor,
graying his honor to take steps he may
ecm necessary to accomplish the above
object.
The mover said that the presence of
those Indians ao near the city was very
detrimental to Victoria, and affected
even the well-being of the province. It
was important that the act governing
this should be cancelled at the earliest
opportunity. There were 1200 acres of
land on the west shore of Victoria harbor, which, through the occupation of
the Indians proved an effectual barrier
to the city's pi ogress in that direction.
The city encircles this spot and has
spread beyond it and it is fully time
municipal authorities Bhould have this
land under control. A few years ago
thousands of Indians occupied this
ground and they were principally of the
Songish tribe, but their numbers have
shrunk to such a degree that the families now existing can be counted on the
fingers. There are not more than twenty families left of thiB Onco powerful
tribe and not a hundredth part of the reservation is occupied. There are a number of public spirited citizens in the
community desirous of formulating plans
for tho erection of a provincial unlveri
sity aud no more suitable location than
this reservation could be desired. That,
however, would be a matter for future
consideration. It* was quite evident
that a more suitable locality for the use
of the Indians ought to be selected without delay and the government should
lose no time in bringing this about.
Hon. Mr. Beaven said that the question of Indians occupying reservations
would bear a good deal of discussidn by
thiB House. The Govornment had set
aside the Songish reserve in the very
earliest days of the Province; he related
the details and history of that event and
Baid that it was a most important point
that those reservations of the Indians
resigning them should revert to the
Province. It had been denned that this
land should go into the market for salo.
The place where the Indians now were
was a most unsuitable location and much
to the city. The right thing to do was
to select for them a piece of land some-
wheie else, which they could cultivate
and consider as thoir home. It was not
a pleasant thing for the youth of the
city to go and see the Indians in their
present state. It had a bad effect and
was not in the interests of the city. Tho
resolution wub certainly a move in the
right direction, but it did not go far
euough. It was an erroneous idea to
think that the Indians themselves could
sell this land. The land belonged to the
Government. The Government ought
not only to take into consideration the
advisibility of removing these Indians,
but the transference of the reservation
to the city of Victoria. Ho cited the
case ot the New Westminster reservation and said Victoria ought to follow
that precedent. Thia reserve should be
within the corporate limits of the city.
Ihere could be no doubt that had it not
been for this reservation the city of
Victoria wonld have grown much more
rapidly towards tho west. All such propositions as he had named should be
embodied in the resolution. He then
read a resolution in which thoae Ideas
wore incorporated and which he considered fully covered the caso.
Col, Baker said this was a very Interesting question and applied in a certain
degree to the Kootenay district, and he
thought thnt as tho Indians died out
and left the reserves vacant the land ■
ought to revert to the province. In
aome cases the Indians were allowed to
sell the land. But that was only when
permitted hy the government to preempt the land in the same manner as
white settlers aud as booh as thiB was
done of course they could dispose of it an
they choae. He objected to the clause
in the amendment proposing that this
land be handed over to the city and not
to the province. It waa much too valuable a proi>erty to bo handed over to the
city when there was so much to be done
in the province, nnd especially on the
Island.

THK DOMINION FRANCHISE ACT.
Dr. Wilson's resolution proposing the
repeal of the Dominion Franchise Act,
aud adoption of the Provincial voters'
lists at Dominion elections, ought to be
supported by every member of the
House of Commons who has the slightest regard for economy or the public interest, remarks the Ottawa Free Press,
and continues: "The unnecessary Fran1
"chise Act haa already cost the tax
"payers of Canada ubout a million doi-
"lars, besides the groat expense, work
"aud worry which it has imposed upon
"the political organizations throughout
"the country. Yet tho lists prepared by
"the Dominion revising barristers at
"such groat trouble and expense, are
"not as complete nor as satisfactory as
"those prepared by the municipal
"authorities in the several provinces,
"without charge. In the majority of
"the provinces, manhood suffrage has
"been adopted, and by using the Pro
"vlncial electoral lists for Dominion
"elections the Federal Parliament would
"virtually give manhood suffrage to the
"great majority of the people of Canada.
"Hence the adoption of Dr. Wilson's
"proposition would not only Bave an im*
"mense amount of public money, but it
"would enfranchise a large number of
"Canadians who are now disqualified
"from voting at elections for the House
"of Commons by the system of the fancy
"franchises embodied in the Dominion
"Act, The Franchise Act is wholly unnecessary. Better lists than thoae prepared by Sir John Macdonald's revising barristers can be had for nothing."
From a British Columbia point of view,
we need hardly say, as we have touched
upon the question before, we can easily
endorse the general tenor of the remarks
mode by the Free Press on this subject,
The Dominion Franchise Act may be
cumbersome, costly and unsatisfactory
in its results in the eastern provinces,
as our cotemporary intimates, but here
it is much more so. The "political organizations" of the east, which, at
"great expense, work and worry," assume the onerous task of translating
and applying the Act to the people, are
altogether wanting In this Province, and
the few and far between, perfunctory,
• and often farcical, circuits of the revising barristers, who do not receive sufficient allowance for the "magnificent dis-
"tances" they arc supposed to cover, furnish the only means for the many, otherwise qualified, who are not fouud on the
municipal assessment rolls, to complete
their qualification for Dominion voters
by getting their names on the voters'
register.
When registration has been reduced
to the simplest and easiest formula possible, and every reasonable facility supplied to suit the convenience of the most
supine and indifferent, it is a notorious
fact that the average individual, even in
the centres of population, but more
especially in the scattered rural settlements, will not voluntarily put himself
to any trouble to claim liis franchise.
But when registration is rendered difficult, devious, and inconvenient to the
ordinary loyal and patriotic citizen, and
no everyday facilities are supplied that
he may register- at liis convenience and
without any distinct and violent effort,
this very important matter, In the majority of cases at least, will be neglected
altogether, which fact has ample demonstration in the experience of any rural
district, especially, that might be mentioned in the Province.
A few weeks ago we called attention
to the desirability of some improvements
that might with advantage be made in
the way of facilitating and regulating
registration under the Provincial Act;
but the Provincial system of registration
Is simplicity and perfection itself, so far
as practical workableness and applicability to its cirou instances is concerned,
when compared with the Dominion
Franchise Act ob exemplified in its workings In this Province. We can see no
hope of the latter Act, while retaining
anything of its preaent constitution, ever
working satisfactorily here, as compared
with a Provincial measure prepared with
some knowledge of aud regard for the
peculiar circumstances of tho country,
and we ean see no good reason that could
be successfully urged why, as Dr. Wilson
aud the Free Press suggest, the Dominion Franchise Act should not he repealed,
and tbe Provincial voters' lists, of eaeh
Province adopted for Dpniinipn elections.
In the great economy, and undeniably
l^tt^reaulta which would thua be insured are the strongest possible arguments in favor of such a reform.
MABLE    ISLAND.
fHV above named island, a twenty*
mije long sandbar lying out in the Atlantic two hundred miles oast of Hall-
fax, possesses not a little of curiouB in
terest to Canadians in itB climatic
characteristics, obaervea the Empire.
The meteorological report for November, which has just been issued, shows
that the mean temperature of October
on this far eastern outpost of the Dominion was no less than 67° 4. This
was ten degrees wanner than Halifax
in the same month, and is only two degrees cooler than the mean of a Toronto
September. It represents iu mildness
the average Philadelphia October, Is
three degrees warmer than the October
of Pelee Island in Lake Erje, and the
same as October and June in. Han Francisco. Although the month of October
over eastern Canada generally was low
er than usual this year,, and. fr. Toronto
was less than 4$,°, $able Island maintained an autunm warmth little Inferior
to place*** of similar latitude in the Mediterranean bssln. In Toronto the mercury fell to seven degrees below the
froeezing point, but in Sable Island the
lowest was 45°,  or thirteen  degreea
above freezing.   Wero it not for the
copious rains and fierce gales of the Atlantic thiB warmth would make the
lonely island a rival to Bermuda as a
late fall resort for invalids.   The explanation of the mildness of Sable Ialand is the influence of the Gulf Stream.
In the latter part of winter and during
the flrst half of summer the Gulf Stream
lies south and east of the island, and the
mean temperature is a little lower than
at Halifax, though the minimum temperatures are never so low.   But from
midsummer until after midwinter the
island is bathed in the warm current,
and it is rarely, even in January, that
the mercury falls below  the  freezing
point, while* October froBt ia entirely
unknown. The variations in the warmth
of the island  from  season  to  season
might—due regard being paid to other
leading factors in its climate, such  as
the drift of the Labrador icebergs—furnish a fairly approximate index of the
position and warmth from time to time
of the great current from the Gulf of
Mexico.    tttm_______________lt_______________m
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Kev. Dr. Collier, of Chicago, tells this
story of the elder Dumas: He wus invited to bring hiB daughter to a reception given by a Parisian woman, who
was a little way off tho strict line of
society. He went, but he did not take
Mile. Dumas. The hostess asked him why
the young lady was not preaent. "There
are two good reasons," answered Dumas,
"the second of which is that she has a
bad cold/'
At the sale of the Barlow collection of
books in New York on the Oth inst.,
says an exchange, the second most im
portant prize securee by purchasers was
the "Cartographic, dea Canada," a collection of original maps of North America drawn up, It is supposed, by Rau-
din between 1672 and 1082. It was purchased on order by Mr. Fred Morris for
$080, Its destination, it may be hoped,
is some Canadian library, where, of
course, it would constitute a valuable
reference for Canadian scholars.
One hears occasionally of the decay of
patriotism in England, but probably
there is a good deal of it yet stowed
away in out of the way places in the
Old Land. There is, at least, one old
lady who haB the genuine stuff' in her,
aud probably she does not belong to an
extinct species. Though she Ib an invalid and has been ordered by her physician to take two glasses of wine daily,
she sternly refuses the use of the stimu-
lent. "No," she said, in reply to expostulation, "I have juat been reading
of the way in which they are boycotting
our gooda in Portugal, and I Bhould not
be acting aa a true Englishwoman if I
did not retaliate, oven at the cost of my
health VJ*~Ex.
Next month the great Forth bridge is
to be formally opened by the Prince of
Woles. This ceremony takes place ou
the 4th proximo. The other day the
chief engineer, Sir John Fowler, tested
the two 1,700 feet main spans of the
bridge by placing on the centres two
trains, each made up of fifty loaded coal
wagons and three of the heaviest engines
and tenders, the total load beiug thus
massed upon the spans being the enormous weight of 1,800 tons, which is more
than double what the bridge will ever
bo called upon in practice to sustain.
The result was satisfactory and every
part of the bridge will be in perfect
order when the first train carries the
royal party across next mouth.
Whilst the estimated increase of population in New York State during the last
nine yeara has been eighteen per cent.
the State Board of Charities report, just
out, states that the number of the insane
haB increased over sixty-two per cent.
Besides the 15,482 insane institutions,
the board estimates that there are
enough in family care to raise the whole
number to 20,000, or one for every
persons. This is really an alarmiug indication of social derangement. One
has only to calculate a number of years'
progress of this sort to obtain an idea of
the extent of the evil. It may be, as
some writers contend, that the severity
of competition and the struggle for
existence in these modern days have
much to do with the increase of insanity,
but the problem it presents is one of the
most difficult and harrowing that could
be presented for human solution,—Ex.
George Augustus Sala, the London
journalist, says an exchange, has kept
his London residence an absolute secret
for many years, but his recent marriage
will make it impossible for him longer
to keep up a mode of living which has
been the cause of a good deal of amusement and sometimes exasperation to
London editors for many years. He has
never permitted even his most intimate
friends to know where he lived, aud the
result of this amiable habit has been at
times somewhat exasperating. Hismail
went to the newspaper office or to the
club, and whenever he had a big piece
of work on hand which required steady
attention, he would disappear absolutely
from view. Not infrequently the news*
paper which was intending to publish
the heayy pte*** ot work on which Mr.
Sala was engaged would find it necessary
to communicate with that gentleman
before the completion of the manuscript.
All hands in the offlce would start out
in hansoms and on foot to visit the
resorts frequented by the journalist, and
tbe liveliest sort of a chase all over London would follow. Sometimes it would
be three or four weeks before anybody
succeeded in running the writer to cover.
But he has lately married hiB typewriter
and settled down at a known residence.
Tlie San Franoisco Examiner says: In
the early days of California a Chinese
boy came to Ban Francisco. For some
reasons he divorced himself from all
associations with his countrymen, as*
sumed the garb and habits of an American and learned the painters' trade. He
took the name of Joseph Allmau and
settled himself in San Leandro, where
he pursued bis calling and was generally
respected. Many years afterwards his
old father came to this coast and hunted
up his son. Then there occurred a scene
believed to be unique In the history of
the country, fhe son was compelled to
converse with his father through an
Interpreter. By reason of lack of association with people who Bpoke Chinese,
Aljuutn had entirely forgotten his native
tongue, and his father had not been long
enough in the country to pick up any
English. After a time Alhnan sought to
take out citizenship papers. Then he
fouud that he was actually a man without a country.   On account of his race
and color he was prohibited from becoming an American, and as he had lost
the language of his parents he could not
claim China as the country of his home
yearningB. Repeated efforts to become
a citizen of the United States have resulted in failure. Alhnan ia a soft-
ipoken man, a good house painter and
has an American's liking for a fast
horse.
A bill is before the Senate at Washington which contains very sweeping
clauses dealing with immigrants.
Among other things it provides that
every foreign subject going to the United
States shall obtain the permission of
and be identified by his own government. Such permission and identification Bhall be evidenced by a certificate
in the English language by the government of which the immigrant iB a subject. It will also contain the namo and
description of the peraon with his or
her signature. Alao the family or tribal
name, title, rank, sex, age, height and
all physical peculiarities; former and
present occupation, otc. The bill further provides that the certificate shall
be vised by the diplomatic or consular
representative of the United States at
the place from which the intending immigrant is about to depart. Should this
bill become law it would render all extradition treaties unnecessary. But the
extraordinary thing about it Ib that it
practically surrenders to foreign government the sovereign right of the United
States to grant asylum to political exiles.
Iu England this right has always been
jealously guarded. In fact it is the
boost of Englishmen that their country
is the refuge and safe asylum of exiles.
The same boast has been made for tho
United Statea, aud with good reason till
now. The bill ia probably intended to
keep out anarchists and others of that
Uk, but it goes too far. It shows, however, that the American Republic ia beginning to feel the pressure of undesirable immigration and the necessity
of checking it.— Montreal Star,

A youug man from Seattle, about 25
years of age, died on board the City of
Puebla which left here for San Francisco on the 8th instant. Mr. Munn, of
New Westminster, who was on board,
writes that he had no friends with him,
no one knew him, but he was an Oddfellow in good standing and the members of the order on board took him in
hand and did everything they could to
relieve him during his last hours. After
his death they subscribed between them
a sufficient sum to give the remains a
decent burial after tlie coroner in San
Francisco had passed upon him,—Times.

A   Reminiscence.
The workmen in No. 1 shaft of V. C,
Co. ou Saturday brought to the surface
quite a numbor of boxes of coal which
were in the mine at the time of the terrible explosion of May 3rd, 1887. The
cars were down in the mine, and not before was it possible to bring them out.
The check tags hung on some of them
still, and the wheels and axles wero in
somo cases rusted together. Those
boxes have stood hi n row loaded with
coal for upwards of two years and nine
months before they could be reclaimed
and brought to the light of day, while
some of the i>oor fellowB who probably
dug the same, still He down In the dark
recesses. Such is the varying fortunes
of coal miners, and. notwithstanding
those fearful risks, us a class they are
subjected to more hardships and oppression than the artisans who dig and delve
in the bright sunshine.—Nanaimo Eree

AN  ECCENTRIC  DOCTOR.
"th* Quaint  Way*   or  »  Successful New
England Medical Man.
Br, Charles Wild practiced mediolne
InBrookltno, Mnaa.. ln the days when
people Insisted upon taking largo doses
of calomel, rhubarb, jalap, plcra, ipecac,
antimony and countless other drugs,
asd on being blistered and bled. The
doctor was equal to the occasion, and
gave his patients their money's worth
of physio and service—when they could
secure bis attendance.
For the doctor was a difficult man to
find, aod, when found, to impress with
the idea that be was actually needed.
Unless the ease was represented as a
matter ot life and death, he was apt to
delay bis visit until tbe patient had recovered or died. Those who bunted for
him, knowing bis habits of going from
one patient to another, without going
home for a day or a night, used to go
through the streets looking for "old
Sal," his sorrel mare, and his familiar
old buggy, standing beforo some house
door.
But sueh was the publio confidence in
him, that in ordinary illnesses people
would wait his tardy visit rather than
send for another physician.
The author of "Sketches of Brook*
line" describes htm as entering a house
ln the breezy way, stamping off the
snow or tbe mud, throwing off'his overcoat and letting down his blaok leather
Siuch, with noise enough for threo mon.
is salutation, uttered in a deep, gruff
voice, was likely to be, if tbe patient
wu an acquaintance:
-Well! well! what kind of a kick-up
have you got now?"
He gave nicknames to tbe children,
and would ask: "How's Nicodemus to*
day?" or: "Weill is Iohabod's tooth
roady for the lance this morning?" A
friend's ohild, whose name was Florence, he called "Rome," "Milan," or by
several other Italian cities.
A member of his family, while making
out the doctor's bills, was perplexed by
a charge upon tbe books ot a visit to
"Don Sebastian." On inquiry lt proved
to be tbe nickname of a child ot tbe
Cahot family.
When the doctor had Btudled the case
and given tho patient his dose of medicine, be would, if there was causo tor
anxiety, settlo himsolf tor asocial visit
of two or three hours, during whioh be
told droll stories, and acted tbem out to
tiie amusement of the children, who
were very fond of him. If the case was
serious bo was grave and silent, catching files, If tbero were any to catch, or
walked tho room In deep thought.
Tho doctor wus moro than a physician,
he waB tho counselor of his patients,
who oonsultud him upon all sorts ol
matters, from choosing a wife or a bus
band to building a hen-coop. His opln
Ion whs an authority that fow disputed,
for bis good sonso was seldom at fault.
Hisquaint humor, on leaving a sickroom, would often express itself In some
such salutation as this; "Now if you can't
sleep well uud don't know what to
do, you cun amuse yourself with taking
an emetic "—Youth's Companion.
AMONG  THE   PERUVIANS.
•Tha South Amerlnan Nation Deaerlbed by
a Wisconsin Girl,
When Hon. John Hicks was appointed
United States Minister to I'itu ho chose
as Secretary of Legation a bright American girl, Miss Elizabeth L Hanks.
Sinco being domiciled at Lima, the capital of Peru, Miss Hanks has kept her
eyes open, and, with Instinct sharpened
by her connection with various Northwestern newspapers, sho has proved a
good ne ws -gatherer. W ri ting to a
friend In this city, Miss Hunks suys:
"Procrastination is the ruling habit of
Peru. Ask a Peruvian when he will do
any l tli ing and he replies 'Manuna,"
which being translated nutans 'to-morrow.' Nothing is ever done to-day, all
things take place on the 'mananu,'
which never comes. This 'manana'
habit la, 1 suppose, breathed In with
every breath of the air that oue takes
in Peru, and I am afraid I have drawn a
good deal of it Into my system.
"This Is a very interesting old city.
and yet tho people and the government
are very much behind tbo times, thoir
Ideas being those of one hundred years
ago. The city of Lima has been called
'the heaven of women, the purgatory of
men and tbe bell of asses;' and to the
last proposition I will heartily assent.
The eity ls full of donkeys, and the men
and women who drive and rido thom always carry a big ohunk of wood with
them, which tbey continually apply to
the ribs of the poor animals. Some enthusiastic writer has called tbo women
of Lima the most beautiful In the world.
There are some pretty Peruvian girls to
be met on the streets or saying their
beads in some of the many churches.
Their dark eyes are the kind that would
make a man jump off Pisarro's bridge
into the river IUmao If bis suib happened to go wrong. Tbe Peruvian men
pay a great deal of attention to their
personal appearance and pass away
mueh of tbelr time In dress suits and
tooth-pick shoes. They are very gallant, but are not balf so nice as American men from any pointof view.—Washington Capital.        	
Affecting Story or » Little Newsboy Who
Lost Ten Dollars.
A business man of Detroit, whose office Is on Woodward avenue, relates this
singular experience tn tho Freo Press:
'I wanted a ten-dollar bill changed,
and as 1 was alone 1 stopped to the door
>ind called a little newsboy whom I bad
frequently employed to run on errands.
ind told him to carry It to tbe nearest
..tore and get lt changed. I tbon went
{aside and waited. My partner camo in
■and ridiculed me for wbat I had done.
!' 'You will nover see tbo boy or tho
chango again,' he Bald.
"I must day his prophecy looked pos-
i ible wlion as hours went by tbe boy did
not return; still I trusted hlm. 1 could
ctusler believe that he hud been run ovor
or made away with thun thut he had
stolon the monoy.
'■J did not change my mind when a
week bud passed. I did not kuow where
tie lived or who his associates were, and
no newsboy seemed to be missing. The
second week was nearly gone when a
woman oame Into my office one day.
tibs was crying.
" 'Are you Mr. ?' she asked-
-   " 'I am, madam.   Wbat ean I do for
you?1
"Then sbe told me that her little boy
waa dying; that he had been 111 noarly
two weeks, and kept constantly oalling
my name. 1 went with her and fouud
my missing newsboy. As Boon as he
saw me be began to rave,
" "1 lost HI I lost ltf was the burden
of hia ory, but 1 alone knew what he referred to. He had lost the ton-dollar
cute, and It bad preyed on his mind,
.musing brain fever. He died In my

would have done any thing to save his

TO  ERR   IS  HUMAN.
An Explanation  ot  the Origin of Many
Typographical Errors.
Some yoars ago an editor of a biweekly paper published by the students
of Yalo College was astonished, and,
evon more, scandalized, to learn that an
editorial which he had regarded with
fond prido referred to old maids who
served as pudding for a dinner party.
Turning the page he scanned another
product of his pen, a thrilling romance,
and discovered that the baffled villain
bad fired three baUets Into himsolf.
Tho Baid editor bad written in the
first article:
"— old maids who served as padding for a
dinner parly."
In the second article he bad written:
"—flrod three bullets into himself."
It is often asked with virtuous indignation why such typographical errors as
these occur. The explanation, aside
from the total depravity ot inanimate
things, oan readily be given. In faot,
tho wonder grows tbat such mistakes do
not far of tener occur.
Immediately boforo a written article
is given to compositors to be "set," the
"copy," as the manuscript is termed hy
printers, is scissorod into "takes," or
portions of ten or twenty lines. Sorao-
times slight attention Is paid to the
paragraphing und the pinict'iatlon of
tbo written page when the articlo is
thus cut up, and, consequently, tho last
lino of a "take" may often end In the
middlo of a sentence. When such Is the
caso the "take" is snld to "end even."
Aftor a manuscript Is cut up.the
"takos" are commonly put on a copy
hook, und indicated by a letter of the
alphabet, followed by consecutive
figures. For instance, the editorial
which brought such consternation to tbe
student-editor was out up iuto three
"takes," Indicated us 15 1, E 3 and E 3.
Tho first "ended evon" with the word
"as," and tlio second "begun even"
witli the words "padding for a dinner
party." Tho compositor who took from
tbo hook the first "take" set It according to copy, while tho compositor
who took tlio second "tako" mudo tbe
error (a very common ono) of mistaking
rt for tt, and so converted "pudding" into
"pudding." Tbo first compositor
finished his "tako" quickly, und a proof
of lfc wus 1 mm ed lately roud by tho
proof-reader. Tbo other compositor
was slow, and did not finish bis "take"
until several minutos after compositor
No. 1 had finished bis. In the meantime, the proof-reader, having been
busied with important and pressing
statistics, had forgotten the exact ending of E 1. Seeing tlmt E fl begun with
"pudding for a dinner party," and believing* that pudding was proper and desirable ut a dinner party, ho did not do-
tect the compositor's error. This error,
ln fact, should have heen detected by tho
"copy-holder," or person who followed
with his oyo the wording in tho "copy,"
as the proof-reader read aloud from tlio
proof; but in this case, tho "copyholder," duplicating tha mistake of the
compositor, also mistook a for tt.
A similar mistako wan mudu inthe
ouse of the scheming villain who "fired
throe bullets Into hiraoolE"- with tho
exception that u was mistaken for rt.
The first "tako" "ended even" with tho
word "throo," and tho next "bogan
even" with "bullets." Tho compositor
who sot tho second "tuke" mibsoquont-
ly observed that ho didn't haye time to
mnko sonso oftho "take," and Lboiiglit
that hn had done his duty in following
(as ho believed at the time) the "copy."
Tho same editor who experienced tho
two harrowing surprisos referred to
subsequently wrote, ln reporting an
evening nddress by Chauncoy M, Depew,
ttio sentenco: " We do not thus sully our
iti'iris." In rending tho printed account
the noxt morning ho saw to his horror:
"We do not thus Sally our arms." The
considerate compositor had mistaken
the win "sully" for un a and, to make
senso, had made tlio first letter ln the
word "upper caso," or a capital,

SLICK CONFIDENCE  GAME.
How a Ghlcitffo Horseman 1'Uyud It Plus
on un uturn,porting I'Jity.
If I live to bo a thousand years old I
shall never forgot bow a stranger took
llvo of us in ono day at Syracuse ina
manner so slick that ho walked off with
our cush beforo wo had a suspicion. It
was a rainy, dismal afternoon, and a
dozon men—agents, drummers, drovers
and othors—woro sitting about the offlce.
Homo one read a newspaper clipping
ubout a bigamist who had seven wives,
and pretty soon oaob one hod an opinion
to udvauco. Finally a well-dressed,
good-looking man ventured tbe observation:
"I myself could have married a dozen
womon on an hour's notice. It's all in
the flrst impression created."
Homo agreed and some differed, and
tbe discussion began to assume a more
vigorous tone. By and by the same man
again observed:
"You may think me conceited, gentlemen, but I'm only tolling you what I
know I can do. I've always had extraordinary luok with women. I'll venture
to say that I can go down to the depot,
pick out tbe best-looking woman ln the
waiting-room, and if she ls not already
married, tbat I can take her to tbe parson's inside of an hour.
Thero was a grand laugh at this, but
he looked very serious as he continued:
"Perhaps this crowd has some cash to
lose on that? If so, let's talk business?"
After a hit we camo to an understanding. Five of ub were to chip in 8100
each against 8500 of his money. We
were to go to tbe Now York Central
depot, select a female, and lt sbe proved
to he unmarried, he was to persuade her
into a marriage insido of one hour or
forfeit his money. We could bave raised
a thousand dollars ai well aB half that
sum, but he could not cover It
Nine of us went down to the depot,
Among the waiting passengers were
seventeen females, hut on looking thom
over our oholoe waa limited to three.
We finally selected a woman we believed to he a widow. She was fairly
handsome, well-dressed and had two
or three parcels on the seat beside her.
We got seats near by, and then our
masher approached. He asked what
train she was going out on, spoke about
ehe weather, and to our surprise was not
rebuffed. Within ten minutos he had
asked If she was a widow, and she had
scarcely answered In tho affirmative
when he began to plead his oase. It
was only forty minutes by the watoh
when be came over to us and said:
"Gentlemen, I'd like two or three of
you to accompany that lady and myself
to the parson's as witnesses to our marriage."
We went and tbey were duly married
and the stakes passed over. The lady
acted as eoy and shy and embarrassed as
you please, and confessed that it was a
case of lovo at flrst Bight, They took
a train two hours later, and when they
were fairly off we learned that ho was a
horseman from Chicago, and that the
woman had boen bis lawful wifo for the
past fifteen years.—N. Y. Sun.
The Bitten Trying to nite.
"Hay," said tho hotel-keeper to the
reporter, "If there's one thing I do get
tired of It's the way the people have of
tolling me how to run a hotel. One follow suys I ought to do this, and another
.ays I ought to do that, By the way,

DEATH  BY DROWNING.
<tn Author Graphically Deteribea How It
Feels to Orown.
The ship was the Sir George Pollock,
C iptaln Witters, hound from London to
yttelton, New Zealand. We were
jout 1,000 miles south of the Cape of
ood Hope, a very cold latitude in the
i lonth of October. I was a saloon pas-
■ mger and had heen fishing for alba-
fosses and mollymocks over the stern
with a long line and hooks baited with
salt pork all the morning. About midday we went down to dinner, but I, being anxious to catoh a bird, mode a hurried meal and hastened baok on deok,
Tbe Sir George Pollock was an old-
fashioned ship with a high poop, and, as
we had cows on board, anumberof trusses
of hay had been lashed to the stern
taffrail, where they were less liable to
be wetted by tbe sea than elsewhere.
When I got on the poop, no one else
being there but tbe man at the wheel, I
found my line had got entangled with
the rudder. I climbed on to one of the
trusses of hay with the intention of
casting the line loose, and was leaning
down to do so when tbe ship gave a
pitch. I lost my balance and fell plump
Into tho sea. From where I was
perched on the hay to tbe water, as
the ship rose on the wave, was a clear
drop of twenty feet or more, and aB I fell
tint on my chest the wind was knocked
outof me and I was half stunned for
the moment
When I came to myself I wag floating
pretty comfortably, my thiok woolen
clothes supporting me, and my wideawake hat floating by my sido. There
was a heavy swell, and as I rose to the
crest of a wave I saw the ship, looking
vory small, as if sho were already a long
way off. I noticed, however, that she
van hove to, and I felt sure then tbat I
should be picked up. My only fear was
that tbe albatrosses might sweep down
upon me and kill mo with their terrible
beaks, aa tbey had the carpenter of the
s'-.me ship the voyage before. A long
time passed—hours, It seemed to me—
and my olothea having become soaked I
floated low in the water and could no
longer empty my mouth fast enough to
get breath or keep the ship in sight
Every wave that came sank me deeper
and mado me swallow more water. I began to feel deadly cold and 1 thought it
was all over with me. I could not help
blaming my friends on tho Bhip for tholr
cruelty in lotting mo drown, when they
might so easily have sent a boat for me,
but I forgave them and Bald my prayers
to myself. All I could do now I could
not keep my head abovo water, and at
last I saw It green over my eyes as I
looked up, my head swam round and I
thought I was going to Bleep. I waB
aroused hy something touching me,
forcing mo down In tbo water, and then
dragging me out altogether, and the
next thing I knew I was among men
who were talking, though I could not
understand them for the rushing and
whizzing In my ears.
The first words I understood were
something about "handing mo up," and
at the samo time I felt myself being
lifted up the ship's side and seized by a
numbor of arms. Then my clothes
seemed to come off ali at onco—they bad
boen cut off by tbo doctor with a sharp
knife—and then I felt warmth ali over
mo. Soon I know that I was lying in
warm blankets with hot bottlos under
my arm-pits and feet I could hoar
voices round mo and knew what thoy
iald, and 1 could feel hands rubbing my
limbs and turning me about But I
■.■ould not spoak or move or show any
sign of life, and ln my Insldo I still folt
so cold I thought I must die. At length
I felt something very hot in my mouth,
and I gulped and It went down my
throat It camo again and again aud
warmed mo and made me feel bottor,
though fearfully sick: Then I felt a
terriblo pricking and twitching—like
"pins and needles" when your foot has
■Tono to sloop—all over mo. Aftor that
I got drowsy, and tho next thing I ro-
mombor was lying in my own berth with
my father and sister sitting by me. I
was still vory weak and I had a very
bad cough, but I waB out of danger and
fast recovering. Two days later the
children in the saloon, who were all
great friends of mine, were allowed to
come and see me and bring me little
presents they had ready for mo, and In
a fortnight I was up and again catching
soabirds over tbe storn. I bad been
nearly half an hour in the cold waters
of tbe Southern Ocean, and ft wus two
hours before they could tell for certain
whether I was dead or alive.—Edward
Wakefield, author of "New Zealand
After Fifty Years."
A  MINE  OF  GARNETS.
Extensive Ledges of Thli Stone Located
Near Fort Wrangell.
The extensive garnet lodges at Fort
Wrangell aro an inexhaustible sourco of
beautiful and ornamontul curiosities. The
cropping ot tho lodges is about ten feot
ido, standing perpendicularly and running northeast and southwest several
miles in length; the depth of it no man
has ever found out. The rock is of a
mica slate formation and contuins from
two to four dozen garnets to the cubic
foot The gems aro regular polygons,
beautiful in color, and, whou fresh from
tbe mines, have a dashing and brilliant
luster, but when exposed for a time they
become dull and opaque. The crystal
varies ln dimensions from the size of a
pea to that of a hen's egg, and to the
novice aro quite fascinating and have
the appearance of much value for ornamental and other purposes.
The lapidaries, howover, bave failed
to utilize thom for any purposo whatever, oxcept as a curio aud to demonstrate tho certainty of tbe unerring law
of nature which governs evory phenomenon. Every \,\, no of tbo polygon Is
of the same form, ovory angle Is of tbe
same degree, uud every gem ls the
equal and like of its follow. Tho raining and tho shipment ot this rock bas
become quite a business. It Is worth
twenty dollars por ton on the wharf at
Fort Wrangell, and Is shipped to all
parts of tho oountry to fill tho cabinets
of the wealthy and the collections In
publio institutions.—Detroit Free Press.
THE WOMEN'S HUNT.
Females Put On Men's Clothes In Order
to Drive Away Evil NplrlU.
A very ourlous custom is that called
tbe women's ffun t, which prevails among
some of the aboriginal tribes of Chota
Nagpore, India. It is observed whenever any calamity falls upon the community—such as, perhaps, a visitation
of cholera.
Tbe women put on men's clotbes, take
up arms and go a-hunting—not In the
Jungles, but ln the nearest village east
of thom, They chase pigs and fowls,
take as their own every thing they kill
and levy blackmail from the heads bf
the villages for the purchase of liquor,
or else they allow themselves to be
bought off for a small sum of money and
a pig. Toward evening tbe hunting
party retire to a stream, cook and eat
their meal, drink their liquor and then
return homo, having acquitted themselves during the day In a thoroughly
masculine and boisterous manner.
Then the village that has been visited
goes on a similar excursion to the vlllago east of lt, and so on to the eastern
border of the dlstrlot By this BerloB of
excursions it is supposed that the evil
spirit is safely conducted out of the dlstrlot without offending Its dignity.—

Rand Bros, to-duy concluded the purchase of lot IU, block 18, suburban, lying west of Douglas street and fronting

nearly 7 acres, and the price paid was
$3,100 which Ib  more  than  double
what it was worth it year ago. Property
in the northern suburbs of the city Ib
rapidly appreciating iu value, as Ib
clearly evidenced by this sale.
Ordered to Leave.
A number of vagrants havo arrived in
the city during the past few days from
Vancouver and the Sound, but there Ib
no rest for them here. Chief of Police
Pearce made a tour this morning
of the localities where vagrants
abound, and discovered not a few.
Theie were promptly ordered to leave
the eity before to-morrow morning or
warrants for their arrest would be issued,
and they would receive the full benefit
of the law. Several of these characters
took the hint aud left immediately, and
it is quite probable that the whole lot
will he clear of the city hefuro to-morrow night. There is no room iu Westminster for tramps and vagrants, and
the sooner thu fraternity realise this
fact the better it will be for themselves.
Flrea At Chilliwack.
A despatch from Chilliwack dated
Monday, says: At 1 o'clock yesterday
morning the residence of Johu A, Campbell, of this place, waa completely destroyed by fire. The fire was flrst discovered by Mr. Ronald Campbell, who
was returning from Centreville, about
12:3oa.m. He rushed into the house
and rescued Peter McRae, who was
asleep at the time, nud who would certainly have perished in the flames. The
whole building, together with furniture,
bedding and clothing, was destroyed iu
an hour. The fire is supposed to have
started in a defective flue. The building was insured for $2,000.
This evening the Palace Hotel, Centreville, was discovered to be on fire.
Fortunately there was plenty of assistance on hand and the fire was got under
control before it had spread. The hotel
is the property of Henderson Bros., and
at present is being enlarged and under-
ing extensive repairs.
The Late Sergt. Lindsay, II. A.
Well-known throughout the Province,
especially in Cariboo, where he has
resided for tiie last 22 years, Sergeant
Lindsay entered the Royal Artillery |
in the year 1840, at the age of 16 years.
He served with his regiment for a num-1
ber of years in Gibraltar and in 1858 was ]
attached to the Royal Engineers to come
to British Columbia. He landed in
Victoria in April 1859, and remained in
tbe colony until the Engineers were disbanded in 1863, when he returned to
England to complete his 21 years' service
entitling him to a pension of 2s, 3d. per
day, At the expiration of his service iu
1667 he returned to British Columbia;
was then appointed constable and registrar of the court in Cariboo, which
office he filled until the time of his death.
Sergt. Lindsay was a native of Kilcon-
quhr, Fifeshire, Scotland, and was about
61 years of age. During his service in
his own regiment and during the time
he waB attached to the Royal Engineers
he was a non-commissioned officer, respected by both officers and men; be wub
a thorough soldier, of a kind and genial
disposition and was always liked and
respected by all those he came in contact with. He leaves a great many
friends and many old comrades to mourn
his demise. He waB a famous athlete,
and in all the garrison at Gibraltar, there
was not a man who could compete with
him in various athletic contests.
made some very obnoxious proposals to
one of the women. ,
Chief Pearce asked tha) the fullest
penalty of the law be inflicted on the
prisoner, as he was one of the men suspected of committing a burglary at Vancouver laBt week; besides which there
had little or no petty thieving in the city
for some months and it was desirable to
make an example in this case.
Evans made a very clever defence, but
he wus found guilty on both charges,
and Mr. Atkinson sentenced him to 12
months imprisonment with hard labor.
Tha New Weekly Columiiian.
The new Wekkly Columiiian, which
we present to our readers thii week for
the first time, is a considerably larger,
and will be generally conceded to be a
much handsomer and more convenient,
Saper than the old one destroyed hy tlm
re. Iu every respect it is the equal
and in some respects the superior of any
weekly paper published in tho Province. The Provincial reader will find
in it all the week's news, home and
foreign, with appropriate comments and
entertaining miiceiUneoui matter, conveniently and pleasingly arranged, while
no better souvenir could be sent abroad
by people resident in the Province to
their friendi, conveying as it would in*
formation and pleasure to the recipient
and proving a valuable and effective ad*
vertisement of the country u.Jh.-ell.
Children Cry for Pitcher's Castoria.
A Musical Evening.
Although the weather was fine and all
things favorable the Choral Union -concert last night was only fairly patronized,
but the audience, after all, was fully us
large as on former occasions. The concert itself waB a musical treat, and it
may be classed as the most successful,
as to merit, that lias ever been given by
the Choral Union. The solos and duets,
the trio and quartette were all fine performances, and there was a most apparent evidence of long and careful training
throughout. Tho singers were also in
good voice, aud it maybe Baid tbey never
sung to better advantage or with more
spirit. The choruses were grandly rendered, and the effect in some instances,
particularly " Awake, Awake," "Hark
their notes" and "Songof the Vikings,1
was a surprise to the audience. The
instrumental part of the programme,
which was taken by Mrs. Pearson, Miss
Dickinson aud Mr. Morey needs no com
ment—it was almost perfection.
Mrs. Sillitoe sang even better thun
UBtial, and that is saying a- great deal.
Mrs. Moresby's voice Beema to improve
alwavs, and her singing last night may
be classed among her most successful
efforts. MrB. Lyal's sweet voice delighted the audience, and Miss Major
sang exceedingly well, bringing out all
the soft notes in a manner above criticism. Miss McBride'B singing wus of
high merit, aud her performance wna
among the best of the evening. Mr.
Hamber und Mr. Kent both won much
applause, und all of it was deserved.
Last night's concert ends the Choral
Union series for a time, but it is generally hoped that the good work accomplished by Bishop Sillitoe will not be
allowed to die, and that the Choral
Union will continue to exist and bud
Into new life as strong and excellent as
ever before many months go by.

DOWN TO THE BOTTOM.
The Engine and Boiler of Gllley'si Pile-
Driver Fays a Vlalt to tho Bottom of the Blver.
The boiler of tiilley's floating pile-
driver, Rustler, came to grief on Sunday morning, and had it heen made of
more digestible material than iron it
would have made food for the fishes ere
this. The engine and boiler had been
taken ashore to drive the piles for the
foundation for Mr. Billodeitu's new
hotel, and when they were replaced on
the scow the proper precautions were
not taken to make them secure against
being capsized. The pile-driver was
made fast to Webster's wharf, but sufficient slack was not allowed tor the rise
aud fall of the tide. Aa a resultof this when
the tide went out the scow listed over
and the engine and boiler pitched outwards, crashed through the side of the
house and went overboard, sinking in
30 feet of water.
On Monday evening McDonald's pile
driver went tothe rescue and succeeded
in placing the Rustler ou an even keel
again. But the boiler wns at the bottom of the river and the services of a
diver were necessary to get her to the
Burface again. Mr. Llewlyn, of Vancouver, was sent for and arrived yesterday,
He went down twice and succeeded in
making the necessary tackle fast to the
boiler, and during tlie afternoon McDonald's pile-driver hauled the sunken
machinery to the surface and landed it
In safety. Neither boiler or engine suffered much damage frotn the accident,
and the old Rustler wilt be as tjood us
ever and ready for business again inn
week or ten days.

A Vagrant Teste the Quality «.l  Mr. .1
K. Phillips' flood*.
One of the vugntnts who weru notified
to leave Vancouver a few dayB ago
came to this city, aud he will remain
hero for twelve months at least. Some
time during yesterday afternoon or
evening this man, Robert Evans by
name, weut to the store of Mr. J. E,
Phillips aud managed to carry off three
pairs of trousers. Only oue of the pairs
was missed und Mr. Phillips made no
complaint to the police as he was uot
positive on the subject. LaBt night
about 0 o'clock Constable .Anderson,
whilo patrolling the swamp, heard very
loud language and swearing in u cabin
occupied by a Skena River Indian
named George Angus. Fearing some
trouble waB brewing the constable entered and saw Evans there with three
pairs of trousers on his arm. The Indians complained that Evans was intruding there and the constable questioned
him, but got very uncivil answers in return, The constable then left the cabin
and took up a position outside from
where he could observe tlie doings of
the inmates. He saw Evans lift the
clothes off the bed and hide the garments underneath; this decided constable Anderson and he went in and arrested the man, and took him to the
lookup.
This morning he appeared at the po*
lice court, charged with being drunk In
au Indian cabin, and having goods in
his possession, knowing them to have
been stolen. He pleaded not guilty to
both counts. In the meantime Chief
Pearce had been visiting the different
merchants, and ascertained that Mr. J.
E. Phillips had lost the clothing. Mr.
Phillips appeared in court and identified
the stolen property. The Indians
swore that Evans had visited their cabin
unusked, and offered the trousers for
$3, $2 and $1 per pair, besides which he
acted in a very unseemly manner, and

Cold Weather at the Capital.    An Epidemic of Flrea.
[Froin'OurOwn Correspondent.]
Tuesday, Feb. 18.—For the last three
days everything has been frozen up
solid. The roads are like rock and as
dry as a stone; the wind that has been
blowing from tho nortii continuously for
tbe last two or three days was keen and
cold enough to extract shivers from a
statue. Ice on James Bay assumed such
a stoutness that robust sea gulls and cor-
{mlent diving ducks have found it a fair-
y comfortable promenade and dozing
ground. Skating lias been prosecuted
with animation on every pond in and
around the city, and thoso who were beguiled into doffing their winter clothing
on Friday, donned the same again in
breathless haste Saturday morning. The
ice has prevented the streot cars getting
to work, but as soon as the thaw gets
here they will commence business. On
the E. and N. Railway big trouble has
hold of both rails and is just now doing
its level best to stop the trains up in the
hills. The cars arriving here have icicles hanging around them like Arctic
bungs, two and three feet long. ThiB is
the coldest "snap" of the winter and old
residents say they don't remember anything so severe here iu many years
About 12 o'clock noon fire was discovered in the Club Theatre and the Are
fire department was on the ground with
its usual marvellous celerity uud knocked out the fire in u very short space of
time. Very little damage was done,
though the lapse of five minutes more
would have encompassed the total destruction of this fashionable opera house.
The little blazette at the assembly
buildings was murdered it its harmless
infancy l>y means of -the ruthless axe
and cold water fomentations; in fact it
kicked the bucket young. No damage
to speak of.

PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
(FKOM XIBUT l-Ai-.K.)
Mr. Duck said the only objection he
had to the amendment, was that it tried
tonccomplish ull ut once what ought
to lie done by degrees, but if tbe amendment was agreeable to the House he
hud no objection lo its taking effect.
Hon. Mr. Davio strongly suspected
that the hon. leader of tlie opposition
was out of order with the amendment
and the liouse should not vote upon it
without mature deliberation. Under
the regulations of 1850 when the land
was granted the Indiuns they gave up
all right or title, to those lands around
the reserves, und agreed to remain on
tho reservations, llie interest of the
Dominion Government ceased ub soon as
they cease to he trustees of those Iudi
nns and the reservation lands therefore
reverts to the province. The Dominion
Government has no right to those lands
except wheu the Indians are in occupation of thom, aa soon as they aro re*
moved the title of the Dominion Govern*
ment censes. He moved the adjournment of the debate until the next sitting
of the House.   Oarried,
Mr. Laduer moved seconded by Mr.
Orr, the following resolution :—
Whereas the Dominion Estimates do
not con tit In a grunt of money ub a subsidy for conveying the mails botween
Victoria and New Westminster, this
House is of opinion that a great inconvenience and injury will be done to the
farmers, the canners, and othera on the
Fraser River, if the said subsidy is withdrawn, and that an humble nddress be
presented to His Honor the Lieutenant-
Governor, requesting him to draw the
attention of tne Dominion "Government
to this question at the earliest possible
date.
Thu mover suid this was a matter of
the deepest importance to all the residents of the Fraser River aud the great
industries there. Along the hanks of
the Fraser there are eleven canneries
employing over 300 men each during the
season and these ure all dependent ou
tho river for their supplies. He had no
doubt that if this Government drew the
attention of the Dominion Government
to this state of affairs they would readily
grant the subsidy bo urgently needed.
Hon. John Robson said that a similar
attempt had been made several years
ago, and he hoped that this resolution
from this house would have the desired
effect. The necessity for a mail subsidy
for tlie Frasor River waB greater thun
almost any other purl of the province.
Through the want of it the industries ou
thu lower Fruser was suffering groat injury. As things stood at present the
nt earners ruu pretty much as they had a
mind to uud suited their own time aud
convenience without reference to the
mails. And it wns u good deal for this
very reason thut the question of the
mail subsidy should lie strenuously
pushed. It wus also a question of regular steamer service; it would make it a
certainty that a steumer wuuld cnll at a
certaiu place at a stated time ou specified days, and not just float in wheu it
suited them, as was now the case. The
question was a much broader oue than
mere mail service, for by the establishment of such a business-like system of
regular callings, the injury now being
suffered by the iieople of the lower Fruser
would be completely abolished.
Mr. Laduer asked if the resolution was
strong euough aud if it would not he advisable to ask a continuance of the subsidy.
Hon. Johu Robson replied that the
resolution would lie presented in its
strongest light.
The petition of Robert Dexter, presented by Mr. Duck, was received.
Hon. Mr. Davie, seconded by Hon. Mr.
Turner, brought forward u resolution for
the purpose of gathering evidence as to
the conveyance of certain real estate iu
the oity of Viotoria, ten per cent, of
which property consisted of rock, and
whether the Government ought to can*
eel the conveyances,
Mr. Davie explained ut great length
the ins und outs of the cuse nud after
some discussion the matter wub referred
to a committee consisting of the following: Messrs. Vernon, Beaven, Semlin,
Duck and Croft,   Resolution carried.
Col. Baker asked leave to introduce a
petition relating to the Kootenay Rail
way Co., and the Nelson Railway Co.
The Hon. Mr. Davie moved tlie fol
lowing resolution:
That the House resolve itself into
committee of the whole to consider the
following resolution:
"That it is desirable to reduce  the

amount payable for licenses to sell opium
outside of a radius of five miles from uny
city or municipality, to fiftv dollars for
every six months." Curried; House
went into committee of the whole, Mr,
Haslani in the chair, and nfter a long
discussion, much of whicli was a repetition of what bus already been reported
on this question, rose und their report
wub adopted.
Hon. Mr. Turner moved, seconded by
Hon. Mr. Davie, that a supply be granted Her Majesty nnd that the 'House resolve itself into a committee of the
whole to consider the matter on Friday
next.   Carried.
Hon. Mr. Davie asked that tlie Railway Bill be placed on the orders of the
day for second reading at next sitting of
the House.   Carried.
House went iuto committee on tbe
second reading of the Municipalities
Act Amendment Bill, Mr. Smith in the
chair.
Committee rose and the report will be
considered on Thursday next.
Mr. Duck moved, seconded by Mr.
Davie, that the Legal Professions
Amendment Bill be fully discussed
when the bill comes before the commit*
tee of the whole, nnd that it be placed
on the orders of the day for Thursday.
Carried,
House adjourned nt 5:30 p. m. until 2
o'clock p. in. Wednesday.
About 4 o'clock Mr. Nason. who had
been away from the floor of the House a
few moments, returned and notified the
legislators that the legislative hall w
on fire. Hon. Mr. Beaven rose to u
point of order und suid this information
had not been properly introduced and
■.vas about to produce the best authorities
on the subject, when the honorable the
Premier asked the adjournment of the
House for ten minutes until the lire
could be investigated und all evidence
regarding the same brought down. The
liouse accordingly adjourned for ten
minutes and a committee consisting of
Messrs. Cunningham, Haslam and Duck
proceeded to discuss tho fire with axes
nnd buckets of cold wnter. The manner
in wliich these honorable gentlemen
subdued the fiery element wus a sight to
remember. Their dexterity in wielding
tbe ponderous axe and capacious bucket
was only equalled by their flowers of
rhetoric and flights of declamatory
on tbe floor of the House. The honorable member for Westminster City sailed
into the fire with his axe in u manner to
excite the greatest admiration in all beholders, and vividly recall tho tales thut
are told of the G. O. M. at Hawarden,
chopping his only family firewood; or
De Bois Gilbert storming the postern in
" Ivunboe" to get atthe inside of the
castle. After udeul of dexterous curving
with the axe and the judicious sprinkling of a few buckets of water the fire
left the house, that is, it went out, and
said there. The reporters in tlieir chilly
gallery were ut lirst under the impression that some tender-hearted individual, touched by the summery style of
their garments und their ceaseless shivers, hnd determined to warm them up a
bit if it took the whole parliament
buildings of British Columbia to do it.
But the fire was merely a dull, cold nc-
cideut, und urose near the chimney of
the furnace (there is u furnace) at the
point where it passes through the
wall.
NOTIOE OK MOTION.
By Mr. Ladner—1 shall move on
Thursday next thut the House resolve
itself into u committee of tlie whole to
consider tbe following resolution: Thnt
it is desirable thut the township or district municipalities should be empowered to increase the sum payable for n
retail license under sub. sec. I of section
168 of the Municipalities Act 1889, to not
less than $00 nor more than $200 per
annum.    ^^^^^^^^^^
Mr. Honey nnd lhe H. A,
Eihtoii Coi.i'miuan—iS'iV.'-Iu looking
over your issue of yesterduy evening,
my eye caught tbe communication from
T. AV. Roney, ex-S.A,S. My first im
pressiou wus tbat such communications
were not fit to be inserted in a respectable paper; but considering all the circumstances connected with the affair, I
came to the conclusion thnt Mr. Roney's
effusion was the hest evidence Hint could
be (possibly) got on the sebject, to justify his expulsion from tlie Army and
also his incarceration in the common
goal hy the civil authorities for his bnd
conduct. If ever Mr. Roney is caught
