Nbw Yobk, Mar. 5.—Tlie Mail and
Express Berlin cable says: The retirement of Bismarck from the Chancellorship within a short time as a possibility
is now said to be defiitely settled upon.
The matter has been decided: but the
great difficulty arises in relation to the
future organization of tlie Chancellorship. It is not alone the question of
ability of the man to replace the chan-
"br, but of a life long familiarity with
. , rifemendoiiH questions of state,
the innumerable thread of which it is
not possible for my man to grasp. The
problem Ib considerably complicated by
the reserved rights possessed by Bavaria, Saxony, Wurtemburg and other
states, all jealous of their independence,
and who may make considerable trouble
when Bismarck shall have removed his
strong right hand from the government.
Bismarck has promised to remain at his
post until this matter is settled. The
means adopted will probably be the substitution of a number of independent
ministers in place of the present Imperial Chancellorship.
Serious CoUHequenoAH.
Tboy. N..Y., March 6.—The front portion of the works of the Co-operative

This place and other points north have
had no through freight trains from the
south since January, when the road was
tirst blocked. It is reported there is a
large amountof freight for Sissous on the
road somewhere, and it is looked for
anxiously as it is badly needed now. It
iB still cloudy and more rain Sb expected,
in which case washouts innumerable
may be looked for.

Inakes from working.
Imperial  Parliament.
London, Marcli 4.—In the House of
Commons this afternoon Mr. W. H
Smith, the Government leader, was
questioned as to whether the British
delegate to tlie Berlin labor conference
would be empowered to discuss the question of limiting the number of working
hours of miners, but he declined to answer. He Btated. however, that the
Government's reply to Germany's invitation to send a representative to the
conference, would be laid before the
House as soon as it waB given.
In the House of Lords thiB evening,
the Marquis of Salisbury, replying to a
question of Earl Bcauchamp,. said that
as tho Darnell Commission's report
deals witli imputations against members
of tlie House of CommonB, it is only natural that the House should take action
in the matter flrst. "As a matter of
courtesy," ho said, "we will allow the
House of Commons to tako whatever
action they may think fit before we
move."
Mr. Timothy Harrington, with the
object of proving that while the Commission was sitting a conspiracy wub iu
{irogress, In which members of the Min-
stiy wero involved, to obtain perjured
evidence against the accused Parnellites, read telegrams sent to
agents of the Times in America
referring to Miller and Sheridan.
He asked the Attorney-General if he
had Been any of the telegrams, Sir
Richard Webster answered that ho had
not. "Then," said Mr. Harrington,
"you havo been betrayed by your colleagues. A gross injustice is dono if
your name was connected with this matter without your knowledge." Mr. Harrington proceeded to read other telegrams to show that even after Attorney-
General Webster had apologized for tlio
forgeries, the Times had endeavored
to procure evidence, through Sheridan,
to establish the authenticity of the letters. He declined to say how he had
obtained possession of the telegrams unless a committee of enquiry wore granted, when more telegrams would be
forthcoming.
Mr. W. H. Smith, replying to a question by Mr. John O'Connor, aaid that if
there 'should arise a general demand for
the evidence given before the Parnell
Commission, ft would have to bo ro*
printed at groat cost of time und expense. Mr, Frank Lookwood, the
member for York, spoke in favor of the
amendment of Mr. Morley. Homo
Secretary Matthews contended that
the amendment was only part of the
truth. There was nothing against the
character of the tribunal to justify a refusal to enter the report ou the Journals
of the House, us the zeal, industry,
honor and good faith of the judges was
admitted. The report, he maintained,
established Mr. Gladstone's assertion in
1882, tliat crime with fatal persistence
dogged the steps of tho League.
The editorial and business offices of

OUR VICTORIA LETTER.
Springtime at the   Capital—The  Htreet
Curs Again—The Opium Dens of
Victoria and Their Inmates.
{From Our • Own Correspondent.)
Victoria, March 4.—Winter is fairly
gone. If tlie cold snaps had any back it
was handsomely broken lust week, to the
regret of nobody. The piercing winds
that swept the city for nearly two weeks
and bronght a beggarly account of
coughs and chills in their train, have
censed, and a spell of delightfully mild
weather, doubly acceptable after the
vigorous northers, has setin. Softratiu
have also fallen during the past few days,
with wonderfully freshening effect upon
the grass and herbage, which are nbw
several shades greener than they were
last week. Trade, in spite of those spring
manoeuvres, hns not done unything
exciting and still keeps its winter clothing on, so to speak. More than one
button-hole bouquet was noticed about
town during the last day or two, and the
elimination of the cumbrous overcoat,
and the stuffy muffler, and the big woollen gloves and the headache-provoking
fur caps has also chimed in harmoniously
with the general resuscitation of half-
frozen nature.
TnoSE  STREET 'CARS.
As the local press find the subject a
sort of gooBe-with-the-goIden-eggs one,
your correspondent may possibly be
pardoned oue more little, short, flying
reference to the street cars. These
popular public conveyances are paying
beyond the liveliest anticipations of
thoir owners. The public patronize
thom in such a manner that one might
think thoy had been awaiting those cars
for years. As has already been stated
they work to perfection, and not a hitch
has occurred since the system was put
in oporation.
THE oi'IL'M DENS.
In pursuance of the promise posted
a week or two ago your correspondent
donned a soft felt, slouch hat, a pea-
jacket and u "Whitechapel choker," i.e.
a white muffler, a la Bill Sykes, and a
pair of choice bottle-crushers, which resembled very much the young tenor who
warbles, everybody knows how—all soul
—und accompanied by another loyal
Briton who earns his rations providing
copy for Guttenberg's smart invention,
sallied forth in the wake of a Chinese
guide to hunt the opium demons in their
lair. This was on Sunday night, so late
that an invitation to dampen their
whistles landed the crowd into Monday
morning before the moisture could be
surrounded. By iniuiv a devious winding way, and many a stumble over
things iu general iu the dark, the seekers sought tbe flrst "joint." Tap, tap
went the guide's bony knuckles against a
dirty, rotten, criminal-looking door. A
minute's pause and shuffling footsteps
could be heard inside, the door was
cautiously opened about two inches and
a pinched, yellow face, like that of an
aged sewer rat, peered out; "what you
wanted?" came the sing-song, pigeon-
English query. The guide jargonised
some Chinese und utter a little swearing
nt one another in that language, each
man of the visitors squeezed himself
into the room through the few inches of
space between tlio door and the sill, and
us nunc of them was troubled with embonpoint ull arrived safely in the interior
of a
HIDEOUSLY D.'ltTV   ROOM.
The place reeked with the dull, heavy
smell of opium; uut unpleasant after the
flrst gasp, the fumes of this drug become
quite redolent. The only light in the
room was afforded by a small brass lamp,
the sickly, yellow- raya from which could
scarcely struggle through the smoke
wreaths curling around. At one side of
the room were three hunks, one above
another; the two lower ones were occupied. In the lower lay a young man on
his bnck, one hand that hnd clasped tho
noxioiiB pipe lay across his breast; the
pipe had fallen from his numbed Augers
to the floor. The bosom of his shirt was
open revealing the slowly-heaving chest
and a akin that, by comparison with hiB
grim surroundings, seemed snowy. His
mouth was wide open, und Ida eyes, but
they were glazed und fixed, rivetted in
a stony, corpse-like stare upon nothing.
From the gaping mouth oozed the unrestrained saliva mingled with froth,
flowing down on to the pillow. Only
the breathing proclaimed the form animate, nnd uot u sullen cadaver ready
ty the dissector's scalpel. Indeed, contrasted with the ghastly pallor of his
skin and his rigid attitude, tho stertorous
breathing smote upon the ear like some
thing incongruous and out of place.
THE   DREAHY-RYBD   WRETCH
who kept the den came peering over the
shoulders of the horror-stricken strangers with a mocking tehee, aB if he gloried in the sickening spectacle. lie might
have quickened his movements considerably had he known how near he came
to getting a thorough, good Anglo-Saxon
kick on tlie end of the back just thon.
Straightening up from viewing the
youug man lu the lower bunk the strangers peered into the one nearly level
with tholr eyes, expecting to liud another young man fn the urma of the
Chinese Morpheus. Whnt thou was
their astonishment to find there n young
white woman I Like the poor unfortunate below she lay stretched upon her
back, inert as if in death, stupefied to
insensibility, and Indicating hy her
breathing alone that the vital spark had
not gone out. The neck and breast of
her dress had been loosened nud her
dark hair also, and the latter streamed
down iu wild profusion over the intense
whiteness of the neck, shoulders aud
bosom. Her eyes were half-open, just
exactly like thoso of a drowned person;
aud there waa the snme glassy fixedness
in them as in tho young man's below.
From her mouth also flowed a copious
salivation flecked with unnatural foam
or froth; tho lips were blue und shrunken, setting off in ghastly contrust the
murbte, chalky whiteness of the face.
Her pipe, still reeking nnd ousting off
heavy cloud forms from its glowing
bowl, Iny not far from her head, nud ut
ench deep breath tho smoko wreaths
seemed drawn that way und dowu Into
tho heaving breast. Again tho fleering,
ColcBtiul Cerberus of tho place came grimacing and chuckling around, placing
several prominent portions of his anatomy in dangerously close proximity to
hands curled up tight and boot-toes animated with superhuman vigor. Dropping n small fee into tho joint-keepers
flllhv paw the party made thoiroxitaud
tho first breath of heaven's fresh, cool
uir wns almost intoxicating nfter the
experience of tho few minutes spoilt

wus visited and sights as loathsome
and disgusting found thero as in the
other.
The places were nbout equal in regard
to tlielr condition, the most abominable
state of filth characterising them; want
of nir und light did the rest. Avery
low prico is charged for "hitting the
pipe," ns it Ib brutally termed; and no
other form of vlco, by nil accounts, possesses such a fntnl fascination for Its devotees as does this insidious und truly
devilish ono of opium. Tho frenzy of
the dipsomaniac for his drum is said to
be nothing compared with tho awful
lust that gripes the vory soul of the unhappy wretch who bus tasted of thiB
allurement, whose practico menus cor-
tain ond speedy death. People who
havo had experience with both have
told the writer that only tho florce and
Insatiable craving for human blood, once
they have tastedlt, shown by tho striped monsters of the Indian jungles, can
compare with the awful  mania of the
opium user for hiB drug.
When the reporters came at lust away
from the Chinese quarter and walked up
the silent street, past the police station
and the city hall and the church from
whose steeple tho latest hour of. the
darkness was having its knell rung, they
could scarcely imagine that they stood
in a beautiful city of homes, comfort,
happiness and Christianity; police-protected, prosperous and progressive, the
capital of one of the fairest provinces of
the Britisli Empire,, but rather iu some
old, dreamy, wicked Bagdad full of bowstrings and sewed up sacks for objectionable and de trap relatives, under the rule
of a sensuous, wine-bibbing old caliph
Haroun-nl-Rnschid.
LEGISLATIVE  NOTES.
Tlie marked manner in wliich the
honorable member for New Westminster city always refers to the friendship
that exists between Victoria and the
city on the Fraser, Ib not unappreciated
by the honorable members from the
former city, although some of the members with interests in the thriving little
settlement west of Hastings (Vancouver)
don't appear to relish it much.
The Assembly put In full time last
week and every man of them looked
pleased when Friday evening's adjournment Lame.

around that the electric light will be
used to" illuminate the Parliament
buildings pretty soon. Thus will the

Not much that has yet come before the
House has called for any "Impassioned
eloquence" or ''oratorical coruscations,"
but for all that it does appear aB if there

on all subjects, and it is a nice, drowsy,
comfortable, monotonous style that

Yates* Cable.
London, March 4.—The Queeu proposes to go to Edinburgh toward the end
of August, when on her way from Os-
bom to Balmoral. Her Majesty will
then reside for a few days at Holyrood,
and will visit both the Edinburgh Exhibition and the Forth Bridge. It is probable that the Empress Frederick will
come over to Scotland in the autumn
for a few days. Her Imperial Majeatv
will also pay a viBit to Edinburgh. The
Duke of Rutland is to be Cabinet Minister in attendance upon the Queen during Her Majesty's stay at Aix-Les-
Baines. A messenger will leave London
every evening for Aix while the Queen
ib there, with cabinet boxes and despatches. Her Majesty takes abroad
only a suite consisting of Lady
Churchill, Sir Henry Fonsonby, Sir
Fleetwood Edwards and one Maid of
Honor.
DISSATISFIED WITH WILLIAM.
The Grand Duke of Baden has written
a long andelaborate letter to his nephew,
the Emperor William, protesting against
His Majesty's new policy towards the
Socialists, and his views are fully shared
by the King of Saxony, Prince Regent
of Bavaria, Duke of Saxe-Coburg-Gotha
and other German magnates. Tlie Emperor of Russia haB also expressed very
decided dissatisfaction with the EmpeYor
William's proceedings,
SOMEWHAT   ROMANTIC.
George Vondunse, whose father was
Prussian ambassador at the court of St.
James, publishes a statement, that the
marriage of the Princess Royal to Prince
Frederick William was suggested to the
lute Empress Augusta by his father In
1846, or thirteen years before it actually
took place. The Empress, then Princess
of Prussiu, was on a visit to England,
when Bunnell culled at the Palace of St.
James and arranged the portraits of the
youug Princess and Prince, then not yet
tu his teens, in auch a way over the picture of Wellington meeting Blucher,
that the mother of the Prince could not
fail to see the suggested union, especially
as tho words "belle alliance" appeared
hericuth the portraits.
IMPROVING IN HEALTH.
The health of the Kiug of Holland has
undergone such marked improvement

part in the festivities ou his seventy-
third birthday than he had originally intended. Accompanied by his youthful
daughter, William III. pnsBeu slowly

THK KX-KMl'HESS CHARLOTTE.
The health of the Ex-Empress Charlotte of Mexico hns considerably improved of lnte, and few traces now re-
niuin of the mental disease from which
she suffered ever since the tragic death
of her husband. Sho maintains voluminous correspondence with some of her
enrly friends, evinces keen interest In
passing ovents, personally superintends
all domestic affairs of her palace and
habitually dines with the chief members
of her household. Sho takes long walks
twice dally In the beautiful park which
surrounds the Chateu Bouchout whenever llie weather permits.
LORD SALISBURY.
Lord Salisbury has returned from
Dorsetshire very much Improved in
health. Thero is no disguising the fact,
however, that his increasing size gives
anxiety to his friends, aud Ills disinclination to taking exercise adds to it. It
Is suld thnt he now weighs ovor 250 lbs.,
which for a mau of his height and
physique is enormous.
A Liberal Victory.
Los hi iv, March 4.—The election in the
North St. Pancrns Division of London,
which took place today, resulted in tho
return of Mr. T. H. Bolton, tho Glnd-
stoninn, hy a voto of 2056 to 2540 for Mr.
(Indium, the Unionist candidate. At
the last election Mr. Cochrane
Buillie, Conservative, who succeeded
to the iweruge ou the recent death
of his father, Um\ Loumington, thus
creating the vacancy, was returned by
a majority of 261 over Mr. Bolton, who
was then, as now, the Gladstonian candidate. Tho result, accomplished
through a Liberal gain of 361) votes, Is
regarded as a popular endorsement of
thu Liberal position and cotoution regarding the report of the Puruell Commission thut It Is a verdict of acquittal
for the Parnellites and conviction of tho

seamen congregated about the oflice of
the Alaska Commercial Compony this
morning iu answer to a cull by tho company for a number of fishermen to go
salmon fishing at Copper Rlvor, Prince
William's Sound. The cause of discontent uf the men lies in the fact that tho
company offered them only (100 for tho
season, f20 per thousand for small salmon and $50 per thousand for king or
large Balmon, whercus last season they
were paid $45 per month and one cent a

Strange aB it may appear, politeness as

much cause for consolation in the indisputable fact that the general average of

WEDNESDAY  EVENING,  MAKCII 5, 1690.
THE KOOTENAY. RAILWAY BILLS.
Tub Dominion Parliament has thrown
out the Kootenay Railway Bills, as announced by our Ottawa correspondent
yesterday, and the B, C. Southern is
shelved for a time at least. Under the
circumstances the Dominion Parliament,
whatever its leanings on tho question
on general principles, cannot be blamed
for its action in tho matter, as the promoters of the railway enterprise in
question flatly refused to accede to the
conditions imposed by the Provincial
Legislature and telegraphed to Ottawa.
Those conditions were, jas wo have previously intimated, sufficiently stringent,
providing that the company Bhould
"commence work this year on both lines,
"that Is to Bay: from Pend d'Oreille to-
•'wards Nelson; from Kettle River to
"the West; and from Vancouver to the
"East; tbat work should be continued
"concurrently from all these points;
"that the railway to the western termi
"hub of the Crow's Nest line should be
"completed in four years, and the rail-
"way to the west in Bix years from the
"granting of the charters; and that in
"default of these terms being complied
"with, both charters, together with the
"rights appertaining thereto, shall be
"forfeited."
These conditions were all but unanimously approved by the Provincial House
but the Kootenay , Railway people,
through their solicitor at Ottawa, declared they could not accept them, and
the Bills were accordingly thrown out,
without the Dominion Houso incurring
any responsibility in the niatter. That
the result would have been the same if
the conditions had not been imposed, or
had they been agreed to, Is not altogether improbable, for it is evident that considerable opposition was brought to bear
against the granting of the charters, by
the same power, principally, that has influenced the Federal Government in its
disallowance policy in other notorious
instances. While the Kootenay Railway Bills were up for discussion yesterday, Sir John Macdonald read a letter
from Mr. Van Horue stating that the
Canadian Pacific would build a line
from Sprout's Landing lo Nelson, whether they got a bonus or not, which little
circumstance plainly shows that the C.
P. R. Co. wus nt its old tricks again.
However, as will be seen, the responsibility for the disallowance of the charters
in question rests between the petitioners themselves and the Provincial
Legislature, and the public will hardly
lie disposed to blame the latter for being
loo cautious iu protecting tho interests
of the Province.
INFLUENZA  AND ILL MANNERS.
Tuk oflects of the influenza epidemic
have beeu more extensive than has been
generally supposed. Itis perhaps, not
extraordinary that, simultaneously with
the increased demand for pocket handkerchiefs, the industry ju cambric should
have shewn signs of a revival, neither
does the cynic evince surprise wheu he
learns that, as the doctors become more
busy day by day, the undertaking business prospers pro rata. That the increased consumption of beef-tea should
have been cotemporoneous with a more
cheerful outlook in the horse slaughtering trade is interesting for tho student
fond of noting strange coincidences, but
that a universal and world-wide cold in
the head will Biicceed in modifying the
polite customs of society seems almost
too ridiculous to bo true. And yet, with
great gravity, au English newspaper assures the world that tho practico of nodding to ladles, instead of tho heretofore
customary lifting of tho hat, has since
the visit of the influenza become common among men of all classes, Including
eveu the very pink of society, the Brum-
melsof a degenerate age. It appears
that during the prevalence of the recent
epidemic, elderly beaux, assuming a
liberty allowable in the bald-headed, began to omit the practice of lifting the
hat, presumably for fear the gentle
zephyrs might induce a fit of siu-ezing.
The reason for the breach of etiquette
has gone with the biiow, but it seems
that tho force of example aud of habit
remains, and what not so Jong since was
jterhaps a wholesome precaution threatens to become a prevalent fashion. Such
Is the alarming intelligence which
roaches us.
That sueh it radical change in polite
customs should ever come about, seems
at the first blush altogether improbable,
and yot tho present day ideas of good
breeding are so far removed from what
our forefathers would have regarded as
such that It would not, after all, be so
very strange if some of those little attentions wo are accustomed to pay and
receive should In the future be somewhat modified; Sidney Smith long ago
complained of the degeneracy of his
own time, In thu mutter uf politeness,
und even of lute yenrs we have seen a
change in oue of those little attentions
which ure common to civility, tf not civ-
lllitution. A ehnuge in the mode of paying homage which women expect from
men, is generally flrst of all resented by
the fair sex, then tolerated, and at length
acquiesced in, Not so many yenrs ago
tho man who, instead of offering his
iirni to a lndy, deliberately thrust his
own through hers, would have been regarded as very Ill-mannered indeod, aud
would have been pitied for knowing no
bettor. Tho light resting of the lady's
hand on tho arm of her escort was a
survival at least of ehlvalrlc symbolism,
giving the Idea of protection on the part
of the gentleman and of confidence on
tho part of the lady. To-day It is no
uncommon thing to witness nil this reversed, and what was once regarded as
Ill-mannered, now anises no remark,
but Is looked upon wiih great compla-
As announced in the despatches last
week, Congress haB decided that Chicago should be the site of the great world's
fair to be held in 1892 in commemoration of the quadro-centennial of America's discovery by the immortal Christopher Columbus. The choice is a good
one, and the great western metropolis ii
to be congratulated upon itB well and
fairly earned victory over its formidable
rival New York. An idea of the efforts
put forth by Chicago te secure the prize,
as well as some valuable lessonB from
New York's defeat, may be obtained
from the following remarks ou the subject by the Pioneer Press of St. Paul,
Minn:
This victory waa obtained against
odda, by the most untiring campaigning
that this country has seen. When first
Chicago entered the field as a candidate,
it waB regarded with amusement by
Easterners, who assumed that New York
would be chosen by acclamation. A .little later they dropped the tone of badinage, and within the last week it has
been confessed that Chicago would lead
ou the first few ballots. This change,
ending in the decisive vote of yesterday,
is a tribute to true Western enterprise.
And it Ib as a Westein movement that
the victory haB been won.
There were several reasons, but especially that of location, which made it
seem at the outset that New York should
be the seat of the fair. And had a vote
been taken at that time, the metropolis
of the seaboard would have been chosen
by an overwhelming majority. But if
ever an undertaking was bungled, from
start to finish, it was her contest for the
fair. For some weeks, while Chicago
was going ahead in dead earnest, raising
money, advertising liberally and making
converts wherever a man was found undecided, New York was involved in s
deadly struggle over the question of utilizing Central park for a fair site. When
at last popular feeling was so aroused
that this project had to be given over,
valuable time and important ground had
been lost. Then the subscription books
were opened, and the mass of the people waited for the millionaires to assume
the burden of the cost, while the millionaires politely declined tho opportunity. There waB another war of words
and more hard feelings. Finally, when
It was seen that not enough money
could be hod from private sources to pay
for the ground necessary to be taken as
a site, a bill was framed authorizing the
city to issue bonds for $10 JOO.OOO in aid
of the fair. There was a political squabble over this, it was passed only-after a
week or two of haggling and deadlock.
and even thon certain citizens were pre
paring to test its constitutionality in the
courts. At every step, the course of
New York waB such as to sacrifice every
advantage that she had at the outset,
and tq lend probability to the assertion,
boldly made by not a few of her citizens,
that she did not want the fair. If she
did, she took almost as much pains to
lose as Chicago did to win.
On the other hand, the campaign of
the latter city has been conducted with
most admirable spirit and method. Her
people threw themselves, heart and soul,
with all the enthusiasm of the West,
into the flght. They did not waste a moment in real estate speculations concerning the probable site. They held
meetings, raised money and worked
night and day. They appealed to the
West and Northwest to support them.
and rallied to their standard a formidable body of votes. They did not pretend to believe that they had won, nor
did they mean to desist until the vote
was taken. They conducted their cause
with precisely the same vim and fire
that tne West has given to all her work,
and the country admired the spirit
that had made cities iu the wilderness
and turned into new channels the stream
of commerce and the tide of material
development. They fought as people
flght who do not mean to be beaten, nnd
they deserved to win. The country will
rejoice in their success.
So far as Canada is interested in the
great coming fair of 1892, tho selection
of Chicago as the sito will be more satisfactory than that of New York, by reason of its more central location, and, as
we pointed out months ago, when "using
our influence" in favor of Chicago,
as requested by the enterprising exposition committee, British Columbia will
be suited "right up to the handle" by
this unmistakable confirmation of the
poet's prophetic lines, that "Westward
the star of empire takes its way," to say
nothing of the convenience of having
the great fair held, comparatively speaking, so near her door.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The Boston boy appears able to Bustain
the Hub's reputation for logical reasoning if not for learning. A teacher, says
the Transcript, who, by the way, is rather
fond of English things,' was orally instructing a class the other day in the
foundations of political science. She
had given her pupils a very interesting
lecture about the British system of government. And then Bhe asked the boy
at the head of the class: "And now,
Johnny, what are the men called who
govern or rule over us in this country?'
" Kings 1" said Johnny, promptly. "Oh,
no, Tell me, the next one, by whom
"are we governed?" "Queens!" ''No!
Next boy." "Jacks!" said the next
boy.
The United States Congress proposes
to appropriate $1,000,000 for the purpose
of ascertaining at the time the next
census is taken the number of people in
the country who own their farms and
the amount of their mortgage Indebtedness. If this purpose could be effectually carried out the expenditure would
be justifiable, but it is difficult to see
how complete or accurate information
of the kind mentioned can be obtained
The enumerators would have to depend
largely upon the willingness of the farmers to mako known their financial
condition, and it Ib certain that in many
cases they would be either misinformed
or not Informed at all. It has been proposed in the House that refusal to answer the enquiry should be made a penal
offence, but Congress would scarcely
dare to take such high-banded action.
A bill Introduced Into the United
States Congress proposes some remedies
for the lottery business. The actual
suppression of lotteries rests with state
governments,but Congress can make the
mails a means towards the same end.
Tho bill proposes to interdict the transmission of circulars concerning lotteries
or "gift enterprises" for the distribution
of money by chance and intended to
decolve the public. The penalty for
using the mails for such purposes Is
fine of not less than $100, nor more than
$500. The trouble about the proposal
is that the gradations allowed by public
opinion between lotteries and church
and advertising schemes in
which the lottery idea is present, are so
many and of such different estimation
and the difficulty of watching the malls
so great that the bill, if it became law,
might easily lapse" into practical dlsue-
tude.
Prof. Schiaparelli, who Ib best known
to the world from his interesting discoveries as to the surface and general condition of Mars, has recently made an
important announcement in regard to
Mercury. By observation of the spots
on its surface he has found that its
period of rotation on its axia is about 88
days,or the same as its revolution around
the sun. It thus always presents the
same side to the sun, and hence, unless
modifying conditions of atmosphere prevail of whieh we can form uo conception,
one side of the planet must constantly
be subjected to intolerable heat, while
the other Ib covered with continuous
night and—unless furnace blasts from
the sunny side pour round into the dark
ness—with arctic cold. As watery vapor
is revealed by the spectroscope, it is
possible that a twilight belt around the
planet permits of the existence of life,,
but it is not improbably a region of tornadoes and blizzards. Mercury must
therefore, in the* leautime, be excluded
from the list of worlds that may be Inhabited, and is not likely at any time in
the ambitious future to be coveted by
the United States.*— AV.
The United States senate has passed
the new extradition treaty with Great
Britain, and which will apply to Canada. The treaty adds a number of
offences to those which are extraditable
under the existing treaty, The additional crimes whieh will now be made
extraditable as soon as thiB treaty is put
in force are manslaughter, counterfeiting or altering money and bringing it
Into circulation, embezzlement, larceny,
receiving stolen property, fraud of all
kiudB, perjury, rape and abduction, burglary, piracy by laws of nations, revolt
or conspiracy to revolt on the high seas
and crimes against the laws of both
countries concerning slavery. Political
criminals are exempted from the provisions of the treaty. This treaty will
have a wholesome effect upon the two
countries—Canada and the United
Statea- Canada, it may be said, has
long beou anxious for a complete reciprocity with the United States in criminals, but the politicians of the latter
country, in order to' pander to a vicious
element in their population, have hitherto repelled all attempts of this country
to enlarge the list of extraditable of-
enccs. Public opinion of the better
kind, however, has become aroused in
the United States, and the politicians
have been forced to pass the treaty. If
the two countries would now take one
step further aud mutually agree to hand
over ull fugitives from justice to the
authorities of the other country, without
any ado about it whatever, they would
be doing a common sense act. That
Canada is willing to make such an arrangement, is shown by the fact that an
act to that effect was passed by the Dominion Parliament about a year ago. This
uct wus witheld pending the negotiation
of the treaty now passed by the United
States senate.—Ex.

THE ANANIAS CLUB.
Its Members Tell Some Astonishingly Bald-Faced Lies.
A Powerful Frenchman Who Pulled a Ball-
road Train—An Herculean Bostonlan
Whoie Onlef Amniemeat Confuted
In Boring Holes with HU Head,
"The most powerful man I ever saw
was a Zulu called 'Spotlet,' who worked
next to me when we were digging the
Panama canal," remarked Patrolman
Conklin. "What In otber men waa a
strenuous effort was to him the merest
child's play. He saved the company a
great deal of money in blasting powder
alone. Any thing he oould get a firm
grip on had to oome. I have seen him
toss a twenty-ton rook out of the ditch
as easily as Patrolman Davis can juggle
a wienerwurst."
"When I was In Paree," said Patrolman Asoh, "I saw a man used instead of
a locomotive on one of the railroads.
He would be coupled to a train and
would pull It at a good, fair speed. Of
course, he didn't make the time that an
engine would make, but If my memory
serves me right, he made about fifteen
miles an hour. I had quite a talk with
the superintendent of the road, and he
was muoh pleased with the experiment.
He said the company would very likely
uso men to haul its trains exclusively.
It was muoh cheaper and the danger
from collision was not great This would
make up for the lack of speed. The expense of shoeing and feeding the man
wus considerable, but still he was oheap,
as compared with the average locomotive.
' "A funny thing happened on the road
a few days before I left. The man-engine drank too muoh wine, and In stag-
goring from one side of the traok to the
other kept derailing the cars, and the
entire traffio of the road was delayed for
several hours, or until the engine got
sober enough to go ahead. A scheme
like this would be a good thing for this
country, I think."
"In 1860 I was In San Franoisco,"
chipped in Patrolman Jim Pope. "The
gold fever was raging, and every one
had exalted Ideas of the.wealth that
was to be found in the earth. I was
:tiuoh younger than I am now — though
you would hardly think It to look at me
- and, like evory one else, I went to the
mou tains to dig gold. I had a peculiar-
i/-formed plck-axe whioh I used with
_ ruat Buucess. In the point of the pickaxe was placed a dynamite oartridge,
Mid overy time I would sink the pick
sin inches into tho rock, the oartridge
would explode, thus blasting out the
■stone and saving a great deal of extra
work. I had boen picking away for
uiiout two months on top of a mountain
.ml had made quite a hole. The yield
-was pretty fair, and I had about 818,000
.-.n gold nuggets laid away. One day I
.wont down into my mine and was work-
ling away like a good fellow. Suddenly
tho stone floor slowly raised for a distance of two feet. I yelled to my part-
■lor to haul me up, tor I didn't know
wbat waa coming. 'Don't bo alarmed,
friend,' said a voice under the stono.
I'll be out in a minute and then
I'll talk to you.' Sure enough a head
popped up and a man slowly drew him*
self through the aperture.
" 'Did you say howdy?' said the
stranger with a laugh. 'I know I said
howdy. Pretty tight squooze, but I
made it' Of course you understand,
friends, I was considerably rattled.
•"Who are you and where did you
oome from?' I aBked.
" 'Before furnishing the required diagram and accompanying explanation let
me Inquire If you have any chewing tobacco about you?'said the stranger. I
handed over a slab of 'black strap* plug,
ii ud after helping himself liberally the
■iii-anger handed tbe plug back, remarking: 'That's good stuff. Well, as to who
I am, I'm not ashamed to tell you. My
name Is SardanapaluB Boiling, Esq. My
home is in Boston. You needn't toll mo
your name, for I know you. You aro
-fim Pope, of Indianapolis. I suppose
you want to know bow I oame here.
Well, 1 havo no objection to telling you.
About three months ago I started a tunnel at the side of the mountain, thinking that I would find plenty of ore. I
met with poor success, and after I had
gone in about half a mile I made up my
mind to abandon my olaim, when something seemed to tell me to bore up instead of down. I thought It wouldn't do
any harm to try It just for luck, and so
1 commenced. I had taken out a good
deal of ore when I heard you pounding
up above me, and I concluded to come
on and join you, and here I am.'
" 'But where are your tools?' I asked,
in astonishment. 'Tools?' exclaimed
Mr. Boiling, of Boston. 'I had no tools.
I did all my tunneling with my hands,
iiead and feet. I would juat put my
head against the earth, whirl around and
have a hole about to my shoulders, and
then I would tear out the earth or rook,
or whatever it might bc, with my hands,
Sometimes I would lay down on my
back and kick a hole with my heels, but
I didn't like to do that very much because I would get dirt in my oyos.' Well,
to make a long Btory short, the mining
firm of Pope & Boiling wus formed, and
we worked together forthree years. We
became very wealthy, established aline
uf steamships between San Francisco
and Cape Cod, and when Boiling died
ho was worth 910,000,000. The money I
made I've got yot"
And then, says tbe Indianapolis News,
the Ananias Club adjourned.
A TALE OF WINTER.
The  Opening ami   Closing  Scene* of a
Dowoatlo Dmiiiiii
Did you ever observe with what enthusiasm the boy of the household goes
out on tho morning of tho first snow-fall
to shovel off tho walk?
He enters into the work with all the
seat of a boy at play. How he makes
tho snow fly, to be surel How blithe and
merry Ib our little man, and with what
infinite joy he buckles to his tas'.f. Although bloak winter lies all around him
ho forgets tho suffering it brings to others ln the warm sunshine with which it
floods his own soul.
Hear him carol and sing at his workt
He dances a nimble jig, slaps his
hands about him and utters a merry
jnst, Inspired by the frost that nips his
tuns and fhurnrs.
This is the first aot of a winter's tale.
'i'tiere aro otber ants, but they are not
UJffl this one,
Tl,'»y aro different
In tho scones whioh follow rapidly the
samo actor comes on the stage, set as a
bMuwuIIc covered a foot deep with real
snow*, but he is a changed boy.
Whore ts the merry laugh, the gibe,
the jest, the song, the dance? Where is
the flood of sunshine In his heart?
.  Gone!
Gonel Never to return until the flrst
fall of next winter's snow!
In place of thom we have a boy aged
as with an awful grief, bowed as with a
heavy woe. The buoyancy of youth has
fled, He fools liko one who treads alone
some banquet ball deserted. He drags
his Shovel after him like a thing loathed
. and despised.
Sorrow hath marked blm for her ownl
Tbe frost that lies In the ground ls
nothing to tho frost that has settled
upon his young life.   There Is a pain In
s heart bigger than a load of hay.
"Hear me, ye unpitylng godB," quoth
our hero, "at tbe shoveling M snow I

ORIGIN OF FRUIT8.
Historical Facts Concerning Some .familiar Fruits and Vegetables.
What would become ot the wanderer
in the deserts of Arabia and Barbary If
Providence suddenly decreed the extinction of the date palm? Thousands
of human beings would inevitably
perish, for the inhabitants of Fezzan
live wholly upon its saccharine and
deliolouB fruit for nine months of the
year. In Egypt, Arabia and Persia It
forms tho principal food of the people,
and a man's wealth is computed by the
number of dato palms be possesses.
When dried the fruit becomes an important oommei-alal staple. Cakes of
dates pounded and kneaded until solid
enough to bo out with a hatchet supply
the provision of tho African caravans on
thoir toilsomo journey through the sun-
lighted Sahara. The date stones or
seeds aro roasted as a substitute for
coffee, or ground for the sake of their
oil, and the residuum given as food to
cattle. All aro familiar with the manner in which datos in our markets are
put up. There are several kinds known
to commerce, the most important being
"Fard" and "Persian." The former
comes principally from Arabia, and tho
latter, of course, from Persia. Green
peas—green peas were not usod as food
in Franco until tho middle of the sixteenth contury. Some years later thoir
edible qualities • found approbation
in England. Cabbage—the cabbage
was highly esteemed by the
Egyptians, and was the flrst
"course" of all their repasts. It was no
less valued by the Greeks and Romans.
Cato pronounced it a remedy for all
evils; Erasistatus recommeiiilcd it as a
panacea for paralysis; and Hippocrates
as a ouro for colic. Asparagus was anciently cultivated on a very oxtonsive
scale; Its stems in tbe Human gurdens
weighing three pounds each. Tho
cherry originally came from Ccrusus, in
Asia, and cumo to us through England,
and to England through Italy. The
apricot camo originally from Armenia.
Tho plum wnB anciently cultivated In
[•H.-nnscus, though certain species socm
to havo boon derived from Africa. The
apple cume from Asia, according to
some authorities; according to others,
it is African, and touched Normandy
through Spain and Franco. It is probable that tho Baldwin Is of American
origin. Tho orange la traced from tbo
Celestial Empire, China. The quince
camo from Ceylon, in Crete, so authorities tell us. Tho fig is claimed by tho
Athenians as ind'./enous to tho soil of
Attica, but it wat- j-rttl-ittily brought from
a rogion further h-tst Tlie pomegranate

is thin but touch, arid its juice stains

The Awful PoifrilMl.i*,' Matin Evident by a
Personal I*.(,..*i-,.*,iii„.
In viow of the many Btra:n.'e nervous,
cataleptic and kindred c.niJ.uniis which
are so common nowadays it is not unreasonable to call atu-ni ion to tlie possibilities, which would si-mn occasionally to occur, of premature burial.
A narrow escape of this waB recently
communicated direct to the writer.
Thel aily was the wife or Llio nodical
officer attached to the — th lyginiont;
sho was ntationod at Is.aml, whero'
at the age of twonly-oight she was safoly confined. Shortly a.ier th.uuho was
walking out with an attendant whon she
was taken suddenly Ml with a painful
spasm of tiie heart—what appears to
hnvo boon an attack of angina pectoris—-
and wna conveyed indoors and propped
up with pillows, Buffering groat pain,
and although medical attendance was
Siunmonodj nothing was of avail, and
she died —at leant in tho opinion of those
around her. It was tho ous torn thore to
bury at sundown any one who died during tho day.
She would nover have lived to tell tho
story but for an occidont which happened lu this way: Her nurso, who was
much attached to hor, was stroking her
face and the muscles of her jaw, and
presently declared sho hoard a souud of
breathing. Medical assistance waa summoned and tho mirror test applied, but
the surfaco wus uridlmiru'd. Then, to
make suro, they opened a vein In each
arm, but no blood iiowed. Ko limb responded to stimulus, nud thoy declared
that tho nurso wus mlstak.n, and that
the lady was dead beyond doiibt
But tbo nurso persisted in her belief
and In her attentions, and did succeed
In establishing a sign of life. Thon
mustard applications to ber foet and to
the back of her neck, and burnt feathers applied to hor nostrils, whioh sho
romombers burning her nose, completed
hor roturn to consciousness.—Tocsin.
HOTEL  EXPERIENCES.
Queer Oases of Nightmare Developed ln
» Washington Hostelry.
"Among the many queer experiences
gained in a hotel," said tbe olerk of an
uptown hostelry, "are those connected
with guests who are subject to nightmare, whioh Is more common than many
people suppose. It Is not uncommon
for a night ln a large hotel to develop
tovoral oases ot this kind. In the stillness of the early morning hours heavy
groans or a shriek may be heard sounding along tho corridor. The hall-boy
wakes up, rubs his eyos and awaits to
see what Is coming, and If he is a new
ono at the businoss half expects that a
murder is being committed.
"We had a case not long ago of a gentleman horo who, during the middle of
tho night began pounding on his door,
yelling at the samo time: 'Let me out!
U'tmn out! Help! Help!' The hall-
hoy rushed down to the desk, and, with
the night clerk and the porter, hurried
back to the  room whence came the
omuls of distress. All was quiet. They
■a nited awhile, then knocked. The subject of the nightmare came to the door
feeling very much crestfallen. He explained that bo had eaten a tap liberal
supply of deviled crabs during the
previous evening and that he had
dreamed tbat he wbb looked in one of
the immense money vaults of the Treasury, which he hud seen during his visit
to the oity. Uis own cries for help had
caused him to wako, Such oases, mora
or less exciting, aro of almost nightly
occurrence in a largo hotel, and aro
usually greater when the social season
ls at its height. The guosts who get Intoxicated aro not included in this class
ot noise-makers. They form a separate
study alono, and mako the night lively
very often,"—Washington Post

OF GENERAL   INTEREST.
—A London paper tells of a dog whioh,
having run away from its new master,
traveled fifty miles over an unknown
country to its old home, arrived there
the day after starting.
—An officer who bought for a trifle an
old desk In Montreal was led by marks
on the cover to make an investigation,
that proved the article one of suoh
historic interest that the English government has given him one thousand
dollars for it
—A big poplar tree was felled at
Utlca, Inl, reoently, and as It struck
the ground a large limb broke off, in the
heart of which was found tbe antlers of
a deer, a cow's horn and a numbor of
ourlous shells. The mystory Ib how
they got there.
—A prominent ranohero of the Upper
Platte valley, Wy. T., lately issued an
odd challenge to the betting fraternity
ot the universe. He will wager his
place and stook against 810,000 that in
any stated hunting season within three
years ho will, unaided, kill fifty grizzly
bears ln the Elk Mountain and Medicine
Bow ranges.
—A family In Henry County, Ga., consists of throe mothers, throe sons, two

in-law, two brothers, one daughter,
two great-grandsons, one wife, two
widows, one grandmother-ln-law, and

—AMurfroesboro(Tenn.) woman went

Bhe Bald sbo know there was, and made
the clerk look four or Ave times. When
she beoame Anally oonvinoed she left
the office in a great rage, saying that
she was going to make that old colored
fortune-teller refund the money Bhe had
paid her.
—Parisians have lately been entertained by a remarkable artist who displays wonderful skill in her peculiar
form of painting. With plates of various colored sand before her, she takes
the sand In her right hand and causes
it to fall In beautiful designs upon a
table. A bunch of grapes Ib pictured
with violet sand, a leaf with green
sand, the stalks with brown sand, and
relief and shadows by other sands; when
the work Is brushed away a bouquet of
roses and other objects aro represented
with the same dexterity and delicacy.
—The most polite nation in diplomatic intercourse is Belgium. When the
Belgian authorities addressed a letter
to this Government aBking if the United
Statesstill claimed as citizens all children of alien parents born here, the communication olosed with: "I should be
grateful if your Exoollenoy would have
tho great klndnes. to furnish me with
this document and give rae the information desired. Thanking your Excellency in advanoo, I embrace," eta
Wishing to know what were the regulations of the United States In regard to
peddling, the Belgian Minister concluded with: "I have the honor to have
recourse to your Excellency's good offices, begging you to be pleased to acquaint me wltn tne laws and, regulations which are in foroe In the United
States regarding peddling. I avail myself," eto.
INCOME OF  BUYERS.
Subordinate Employes Who Make Hore
Honey Than Blanugers.
"It will probably surprise most people," said one of tho partners tn a dry-
goods firm the other day, "to know that
frequently some of the subordinate employes receive larger remuneration than
tho man In whose hands rests tho main
responsibility for running a business.
Tho men who usually make tho most
money In tho very largo Arms aro not
the superintendent and his ohief assistants, but the buyers of departments.
"Tho nominal salary of a buyer in
this house is much less than that of tho
superintendent hut tbe superintendent's salary, with the exception of a
New Year's prosent from tho Arm, is
practically the extent of his income.
The buyer's salary, on the contrary, is
usually the least part ot his earnings.
The responsibility of a buyer ends with
his purchasing for his department all
that the trade could possibly demand
of the quality desired by the customer,
and at a price whioh will allow the Arm
a good profit while making the article
oheap for tho purchaser. If, moreover,
he can undersell some other firm he is
pleasing his Arm immensely, and is
sure to get a substantial check as a
New-Year's offering,
"In addition to this tho jobbing Arms
which sell to the retailers must compote
with each other to secure the favor of
the buyer. To illustrate: Tho buyer in
our china department receives a salary
of $8,000 a year, and he annually can expect from thq firm a present of Sl.OOO. I
have not tho slightest doubt that he
gots fully aa muoh, If not more, tn
presents from the Arm from whom he
buys. Dishonest? Well, perhaps so,
strictly speaking, but the fact is that
the custom, although not openly admitted, is very general. The firm
knows It but as I have already said,
their Interest in the matter ends when
the buyer secures tho right kind of
stook at the right prioe. The way ln
which the jobbing firms give those presents makes tt next to Impossible to get
direct evidence, even If the firm so desired.
"It might be said that If they did not
have to make these gifts thoy could afford to sell their goods for loss money,
and thus increase the proflts of the re-
tall Arm; but the faot Is that after all,
considering tho immenso sales, the
money given ln this way by any one
firm would not materially, affect the
prices If they were turned in to our account The very faot that the custom
Is so general and that the retail firms
know lt Is an answer to most objections.
I have even known of oases where the
buyer of a department, who was particularly successful, refused to take a
partnership because his proflts as an
employe were largor than ho had any
reason to hope for as a partner, Thero
are a number tn this town whose Income ranges from 810,000 to 835,000 a
year, while there are mighty few superintendents who touoh tho lower of these
figures. "-N. Y. Snn.
The Host Desirable End.
Most poopio bave many things tr

In themselves except when tbey inter

gradation of duties, that makes lire
often seem so complex and so dillicult
Tho questions oome continually before
every thoughtful mind: "Is this aim

but the moat desirable? Is it likely

tlons to ourselves Intelligently and conscientiously, the rightful limits of each
will become oloar, and our desire tc
succeed ln eaoh will harmonise with
those limits, Thus tbo desire for pleas

the Frenoh novelist Bald: "I have always Instinctively kept clear of politics.
A man can not be a politician and a literary man at tho same time. These are
two beings who strive in different ways
for the same goal—that Is, to be known

OTTAWA NOTES.
The II tit tor  Observation  of  tho   Lurd'H
Day.    Irrigation in the North-
went Territories.
( Front   Our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, March 5.—Mr.  Charlton  is
introducing his bill "Au Act to secure
the better observation of the  Lord's
day."
Mr. Davin has given notice that it is
expedient that the Government should
direct earnest attention to the establishment of a system of irrigation iu the
Northwest Territories.
Stole a Hoat.
Some despicable rascals stole a boat
last uight belonging to John Wagner, a
fisherman. Wagner only bought the
boat a few days ago and had it hauled
up ou the shore near tbe Woolen Mills,
about 25 feet above high water, for the
puryose of painting and otherwise preparing it for the fishing season. The
thieves, consequently, had to drag the
boat some 25 feet to tne water, edge,
which of course, precludes the possibility of its being carried away at high tide.
Wagner is a poor man, aud the loss of
the uoat will go very hard with him, as
instead of fishing for himself it is probable he may be forced to seek employment at some of the canneries. The authorities will make a strong effort to capture the thieves.
An Unverified Itumor.
The rumor that a man named McCauley, living on Keatsey Slough, had been
found dead in his cabin with his throat
cut, has not beeu verified, and there may
be no truth in it. On the other hand
the same report was current a few days
ago in the vicinity of Port Haney, and
two farmers from that section, who were
iu the city yeBterday, Bald that they had
heard something of the affair before
leaving home. Capt. Pittendrigh, the
coroner, had received no word up till it
late hour thiB afternoon, und he would
naturally be the flrst notified by the
authorities if such au event had happened. • Mr. Moresby was out of town
to-day, but will return this evening, and
if there is any truth in the rumor he
will get at the facts in very short order.

Tho Exodus Continues.
The exodus of tramps, vagabonds and
thieves to the United States continues,
and in the course of a few weeks, if the
police remain as vigilant as in the past,
the country will be clear of those rascals.
It was reported to Chief Pearce yesterday that three suspicious looking characters were loitering in the vicinity of
the Crescent, and he went up and found
thom there. Tho men wero hard-looking fellows, and not by any means desirable as citizens, and tbe chiof gave
them orders to leave the city forthwith.
They took the good advice and crossed
to Brownsville en route to Whatcom.
Last evening two other vagrants Mere
found in. the swamp and given their
inarching orders. They left the city
some time during tlie night, at least
their cabin was vacant this moruing and
every movable piece of goods had been
carried oil1. It is supposed these men
stole the fisherman's uoat from tbe wot
len mills last night. The most of theso
vagrants como from Vancouver, having
boen driven from there by the polico,
but Westininster is no resting place for
thom, and the sooner tho fraternity
come to realize this tbe better it will bo
for all parties concerned.
Serious Gun Aooldent.
Two brothers named Kotulleo, living
near Port Haney, were out shooting on
Saturday. The elder brother was (tarrying the gun, an old muzzle-loader, and
after he had loaded it put mi a cap which
was too small for the nipple. Iu attempting to push tbe cap down with tho
hammer the charge exploded and the
contents found a lodgment in the head
of Stephen, the younger brother, who
was stauding near a stump a few yards
distant. Tho charge, fortunately, was a
light one, otherwise the boy's bond
would have bceu riddled and death instantaneous. The shot took cil'cct In
tbe Bide of Kotullee's head aud penetrated deeply, hut none of the pellets
struck his eyes, and his vision will uut
be injured. The lad was removed to
to hiB home and on Monday brought to
this city and placed in St. Mary's Hospital. Yeaterday Dr. Fagan probed a
number of the wounds and successfully
removed a large number of pellets.
Many more remain to bo taken out find
a second operation will be performed as
soon as the boy ia able to stand it. Dr.
Fagan says the wounds are serious, and
iu a dangerous position, but he iB confident the patient will be brought through
nil right.
This Is another warning to parents
who trust firearms iu the hands of
young and careless boys. But these accidents are becoming so common that
people havo ceased to take a lesson from
thein, aud it is no uncommon thing to
Bee lads not over ten years of age peppering away indiscriminately with gun
or revolver at squirrels and birds.
The Departed Buttery.
Robert Irving, city agent of the C. P.
R., returned last night from Portland to
look after the company's interests. The
auditor of tho railway arrived from Vancouver on Sunday night, aud last even
ing an effort was made to diacover tbe
amount of Buttery'a defalcation. The
cash taken from the safe amounts to
over $400 in gold und notes. This sum
was found on his person ou his arrest in
Sun Francisco ou tho arrival of tlio
steamer. Buttery was indignant at his
arrest, but will he held until further instructions ore recoived from here. Several theories ure mentioned as to the
causo of Buttery's flight, hut uo authentic reason has boon discovered. Buttery
has acted the part of a base Migrate witli
Mr. Irving, and was the last man iu the
world who should havo injured the latter in any way.—-Tuesday's Colonist,

A very nice young man was lu the cily
last week who made a numbor of acquaintances. His name is A. V. .fillings, and hu was formerly employed
withE. Klinger & Co.,of Port Townsend,
Conceiving the idea, that money wna to
be* made in smuggling opium, he purchased 44 pounds of the drug here,
placed it in a valise and boarded the
steamer Olympian about 11 o'clock
Thursday night. Inspector Learned noticed him come aboard with the heavy
valise, and took special notice of tho
berth to which the young man wub assigned, and on making his rounds of
inspection went to tho room and found
the door opon. He stepped inside nnd
found the valise sitting on tho floor und
the owner of it in the bunk. Taking
hold of the valise and finding it apparently empty, the wily inspector at once
guessed tno true situation of the mattor
and without opening the valise at all,
ordered tho owner of it to got outof hod,
After some hesitation ho did so, when
Mr. Learned threw the covers off the
bunk and found eighty-live flve-taet cans
of prepared opium—making forty-four
pounds carefully stowed away at the
edges of the hunk, Ho was arrested
and bound ovor in the sum of fAOO to
appear bofore tbo U. S. Court.—Times.
Mr. Thoa. Duckor, wli.se fame for imbibing to an exceeding great depth in
the flowing bowl has spread to the uttermost ends of the province, and whoso
promises to reform are considered by
tbe police to be ns valuable and trustworthy as an account transcribed on ice,
was up before the police magistrate this
morning on the old charge, drunk and
disorderly. He pleaded for another
chance to reform and was more than
ever profuse in his promises, but without avail, and he was sent to gaol for 30
days, with a recommendation to try
hard labor as an antidote to strong
drink,
PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT,
Tuesday's   Proceedings.
Victoria, Mar. 4.—On tho opening of
the House this afternoon the Railway
Committee reported the preamble duly
proved of the bills reporting tho Nelson
it Kootenay Railway and the Crow's
Nest Railway.   Report was adopted.
Mr. Robson presented a return of the
correspondence in reference to the
Victoria, Saanich & Weatmlnster Railway, which was ordered lo bo printed.
Mr. Ladner moved, seconded by Mr.
Orr, for a return of telegrams, prders-
in-council and corresponenco which led
to the Dominion Government re-convoying to the Province 45,000 acres of laud
under cap. 7, 52 Vic, of the Dominion
statutes, whicli wus carried.
Mr. Orr movod for a select committee,
consisting of Messrs. Smith, Tolmie,
Anderson, Grant and' Thomson; to enquire into tho claims of Samuel Greer to
lands in tlie vicinity of English Buy,
and the action, if any, taken ou tho report of tho same matter adopted in
April, 1888. In introducing tho resolution Mr. Orr said that the mattor
had boen long iu dispute, and it was absolutely necessary that it should he settled in some way. The present position
of affairs was detrimental to Vancouver.
If Mr. Greer had a claim it should receivo prompt consideration. Mr. Allen
seconded the resolution.
The Premier offered no objection, but
thought that tho object might liavo boen
more easily attained by Mr. Orr simply
asking a question of tho Government us
to what notion hud beon in ken on the
report of tho committee of 1888. if, ns
Mr. Orr stated in tlie Houso, Mr. Greer
had acquired tho hind hi a legnl and
proper manner, It was surprising that
he hud uot pursued his claim in tho
courts.
Mr. Ladner took the occasion to vin
dioato himself. Mr. Greer, in a potition
whioh was freely circulatod, said that
members of tbe committee of 1888 wore
bribed to present tho report thoy
did. He'(Ladncr) wished to stamp this
report, as far as he was concerned,, uh
absolutely untrue. Tho resolution was
carried.
The Speaker gave a decision on tlio
point of ordor submitted by the Private
Blils Committee on Monday, ns to
whether the committee might hear
counsel in opposition to bills without n
petition containing tho objections lo the
Bill liaving boen presented to Uio House
aud referred to a comhtitte'o. After
quoting rules 57 und Wl of the House
and flvo sections bearing on the qhcB-
iiou iu May's Parliamentary Practico,
the Speaker ruled: First, Mini the Private Bills Committee cannot hear objections to private bills unless Ihey have
been stated in u potition duly presented
to the Houso, in accordance with the
authorities cited. .Second, thut petitioners against private bills cannot bo
hoard on grounds other thnu thoso
specified in the petition,
On tho motion of tlio Pi-enum unci Attorney-General, the ruling was ordered
to bo entered on the Houso journals nnd
then tho debate commenced. Mr. Martin, the Chairman of tho Private Bills
Committee, was not inclined io accept
the ruling, as it was opposed to lho wish
and practice of the House, lie would
appeal from the decision.
Messrs. Pooley, Robson, Davie, and n
number of private members on thoGoY-
orninent benches endorsed the Bill us
the only ono possiblo under existing
authorities, but advised an amendment
of the rules to enable the continuance
of the general practice of the House in
regard to hearing counsel opposed lo
private bills.
The. solid Opposition stated individually they would not voto lo sustain Hi
Chair.   The debute, whieh   lasted u
hour aud a half, was finally adjourned
ou the motion of Mr. Croft.
: The Railway Bill was advanced a fow
sections in committeo,   The Columbia
and Carbonate Mountain   Railway bill
passed its second reading, and tlio Columbia und Kootenay Railway bill  wuh
roud a third time.
The Coquitlam Wator Works Company's Amendment Act wits finally
passed, and the Kill to incorportili- lhe
British Columbia Mills, Timber aud
Trading Company advanced Uyoiigh
its socond reading and into committee. '
In committeo upon tho lust clauso of
the Bill, Mr; Martin askod Mr. Cunningham if he proposed to insert the antl
Chinese clause in the Bill.
Mr. Cunningham replied thnt it was
tho New Westminster Stroet Railway
Bill in which hu wanted this inserted.
Mr. Martin charged him with inconsistency. Mr. Cunningham had eome
out as a strong anti-Chinese advocate on
one hill, and Mr. Martin thought i
strange that he should not umbrae*
overy opportunity to insert in privnU
bills clauses similar to the one ho placed
iu the Westminster Street Railway Kill.
Ho asked the member from Westininster City to explain his views.
The Premier said that uo Mino re
maiiied for the discussion likely to ensue
nnd tho Committeo rose reporting progress.
Tho Houso then adjourned.
