TJkE COMMISSION REPORT
Text of the Beport of the Special
Commission to Enquire Into
the "Times" Charges.
Parnell is Honorably Acquitted, but
Davitt was Associated with tlie
Party of Violence.
The "Times" Claims that its Charges
Have in the Main beeii Uphold by the Report.
Ths Parnell  Commit*ion Beport.
London, Feb. 14.—The- report of the
Parnell Commission laid before Parliament to-day, ia a long and tedious document, taking up the case of each Irish
member against whom the charges were
brought, and entering minutely into the
details of the testimony. The upshot of
tha report, what may be termed the
judgment of the court, is as follows:
It is proved that Messrs. Davitt, Harris, Dillon, W. E. O'Brien, Redmond,
O'Connor, Condon & O'Kelly conspired
to bring about the absolute separation
of Ireland from Great Britain.
The foe simile Parnell Letter was a
forgery.
The defendants were sincere in denouncing the Photnix Park murders,
The defendants did incite intimidation, and invited the assistance of Ford.
Mr. Parnell is exenorated from the
charges of assisting Byrn<i   to escape.
Itls not true that Mr. Parnell was
intimate with leading Invincibles.
Mr. Davitt was closely associated with
the party of violence in America.
The report is more moderate than was
expected, and consequently gives satisfaction to nobody except the judges who
are delighted to get it off their hands.
The report further says, "It is not
proved that the defendants subscribed
to the assistance or intimately associat-
with notorious criminals or paid money
to procure their escape from justice."
It is not proved that defendants were
aware that the Clan-Na-Gael controlled
the American League, or collected for
the Parliamentary fund." "It is not
iroved that at the time of the Kilmain-
1am negotiations Mr. Parnell was aware
that Sheridan and Boyton were organizing their outrage."
"The invincibles were not a branch of
the Land League."
"The League neither organized nor
paid the Invincibles."
"None of the defendants directly or
indirectly had knowledge of the Phoenix
Park conspiracy."
"Pigott was utterly unworthy of credit; all the letters he produced ns criminating were forgeries."
On the other hand the judges say the
League never gave the authorities assistance in detecting crime. There are
no details of the expenditure of $100,000
of the League funds, There is no valid
excuse for the non-production of its
hooks. The commission haB uot received from Parnell or tho League the
assistance it expected. The report is
signed by aU the judges.

The Engagement Dented.
London, Feb. 18.—The statement that
the marriage of another daughter of the
Prince of Wales has beeu arranged, is
semi-officially denied.
iuoNDON, J'StfTWl-^oRS'lIouertiowns-
hehd, first Earl of Sidney, is dead, aged
84. He leaves no son or heir to the
title, which was created in 1874.
Varying Opinion*.
London, Feb. 14.—The opinions of the
provincial press on the report of the
ipecial Parnell Commission vary naturally according to political bias, but there
seems to be an agreement on the broad
fact that the report acquits the Irish
members of the charges against thein.
An Awful Accident.
Pabis, Feb. 14.—A vehicle carrying a
newly wedded pair and several friends
was upset yesterday at Pallivy while
they were returning from the wedding.
The party waB precipitated into the
river and and the bride and bridegroom
and ten othera were drowned.
The  "Tlmei"   Comment!.
London, Feb. 14.—The Times com-
menting to-day on the Parnell Commission report leaves it to the public to
judge whether the report does not confirm, though in colorlesB and guarded
judicial language, the main part of the
statements Tn articles on "Parnell and
Crime." It is but right to observe that
many things which the commissioners
in their judicial capacity declare not
proved, remain nevertheless legitimate
matters for reference. After nenumera-
ting the charges proved and unproved,
the Timet assorts it never accused the
Parnellites of personal participation in
crime, and concludes "if on certain
points we are held not to have established our statements, the general effect
of what we said remains unchanged,"
Claims Victory.
Dublin, Feb. 14.—Tho Freeman's Jour'
nal says to-day the report of the Parnell
commissioners acquits the Parnellite

Imperial  Parliament.
New York, Feb. 13^-The Mail and
Express cable says:—The leaders of the
Opposition in tho house bave decided to
take every opportunity to renew the
discussion of the forged Pigott letters.
Many Liberals consider the opening of
the attack upon tho Government, in relation to tho matter in Sir Wm. Vernon
Harcourt's motion concerning the
breach of privileges, was too hurried,
and that a more deliberate and possibly
better planned attack will yield better
results. The presentation of the report
of the commission of enquiry to-day will
remove the Speaker's objection to the
firBt attempt to call up the matter.

Asquith have backed Mr. Bannerman's

what amount has been derived from the
said land?
Hon. Mr. Robson replied that he
was not aware that it was intended to
so aet aside, and at any rate it could
only bo urine by tho Legislature.' The
money has, o!" course, been paid into the
Consolidated Revenue Fund. The
amount will be given in returns already

and the cheapening of postal and telegraphic rates throughout the Empire
that the best foundation is being laid
for the adoption of eventually beneficial
inter-Imperial trade relations—te accomplish, which is one of the objects of
our organization.
7a, It is to be hoped that the appointment of Hon. J. J. C. Abbott as Canadian commissioner to Australia, a result
which was the outcome of the league's
action hi the matter, will result in the
establishment of closer trade and social
relations betwoen these two great countries.
8. The visit of Mr; G. R. Parkin as a
delegate from the league in Canada to
Australasia calls for special mention, as
it proved to be a great succesB, The
visits of Sir Frederick Young to Soutli
Africa and of Mai.-Gen. Strange, a member of our council, to New Zealand, have
also been productive of most beneficial
results.
0. Before Mr. Parkin's visit there
were but two branches of the league in
the Southern Pacific Colonies: Melbourne, Victoria,; and Hobart, Tasmania. Since thou two more branches
have been organized—at Chrislchureh,
New Zealand; and Adelaide, South Australia; and other branches are being forwarded In St. Kilda, WUliamston, Ftts-
roy and Collingwood and Ballarat, Victoria; Richmond, N. S. W.; Dunedin,
N. Z.; and Rochampton, Queensland.
Mr. Fleming moved, seconded by Mr.
Cockburn, M. P., that the league express its gratification at the vote In the
House of Commons expressive of loyalty
to British connection.   Carried.
Mr. McCarthy suggested the advisi-
bility of bringing about a penny (2-cent)
postage between all parts of the Empire, and that the matter be pressed
upon the House of Commons at this session.
Col. Geo. T. DenniBon, seconded by
Mr. McNeill, M. P., moved that the
league press upon the Government at
the present session the importance of an
Imperial penny postage, The resolution
carried.
Mr. C. R. Dickson, seconded by Mr.
Macfarlane, then introduced the following resolution: "That in view of the
termination of commercial treaties between Great Britian and European States
iu 1802, and of the fact that certain of
these treaties, notably that with Belgium in 1862, and the States of the German Zoltverein in 1865, excluding the
right of Great Britian and her colonies
of discriminating in favor of one another
and against foreign nations, the Imperial
Federation League of Canada protests
against such stipulation in the treaties
bringing about that result, and in order
that no obstacle may stand in the way
of adopting such a policy as the interests
of the Empire may render needful, it.
trusts that any commercial treaties affecting fiscal matters shall not contain
the provisio that the favored nation.
clause shall not apply to any preferential arrangement made between the different parts of the Empire.
A motion was then discussed which
expressed approval of the course of the
Australian colonies in moving for reciprocal trade relations with the Australasian colonies, and urging the Dominion
Government to move in the matter of
securing reciprocity between Australia
and Canada. Mr. Hopkins, the mover,
cited the fact that the trade between the
United States and Australia amounted
to $10,000,000 annually, in which he
thought Canada should share. The motion was carried unanimously.

wna held at Hamilton, May 20th, 1880,
the progress of the league and its principles have been moat gratifying. We
have uow no leas than 26 brunch leagues
in Canada, the latest additions being
those at Yarmouth, N. S., Hamilton,
Barry and St. Mary's, Ont., and Vancouver, B. C.
2. The leaguo in England requested
the league in Canada to express itB views
with regard to the matter, at the same
time embodying its own sentiments in
tbo following resolution, which was adopted at a special meeting of the council
held on Thursday. November 14th; 1889:
"That the establishment of periodical
conferences of tho self-governing communities of the Empire should lie the
first aim of the Imperial Federation
League."
3. The council of the league in Canada,
though of opinion that the better course
would havo beon to hold a convention of
league delegates to decide upon what
suggestions ahould be made for the consideration of Her Majesty's government,
at a special meeting, held at Toronto,
December 15th, 1889, passed a resolution
approving of the resolution of the league
in England abovo quoted, with the following addition:
"That this council would regret that
any conference ahould be held at which
the question of inter-Imperial nnd colonial trade would not be deemed a subject of first-class importance."
4. The associated Chambers of Com
merco of Great Britain, at the annual
meeting held at Hull on tho 17th September, 1889, pnBBed the following resolution :
"That the associated Chambers of
Commerce are of opinion that in view of;
the commercial interests of tho Empire,
the time haa now arrived when a conference should be held botween the government and tho representatives of tlie various colonioa, with tho object of arriving at a satisfactory solution of this
question."
5. Tho Birmingham Chamber of Commerce passed this resolution.
"That whilst the council approve of
the Imperial Federation League, they
are of the opinion that the primary essential condition of Imperial Federation,
is a customs union of the Empire."
6. Somo time ago the following resolutions, proposed uy Sir John Colomb
nnd seconded by Mr. O. V. Morgan, M.
P., were aubmitted for the opinion of
the league in Canada by the parent
of the league :
(a) That the development of a central
body distinct from existing legislative
bodies, for the conduct of such affairs of
common interest to the Empire at largo
as may be entrusted to it by those legia*
latlvo bodies, ia necessary for the per*
mnnent maintenance of Imperial 'unity,
(b) Tbat every self-governing portion
of the Empire Bhould be directly repro
sentcd In that body.
(c) That the maintenance of tho defences of the Empire and a concurrence.
and continuity in foroign policy should
be tbo first objects of ita exiatouco.
(7) The progress of projects tending to
improve tho inter-communications of tho
Empiro has beeu very marked, Tho
completion of tho Canadian Pacific Com*
pany's line of telegraph from Halifax to
Vancouvor, of the cablo from Halifax to
Bermuda, and of the Hues of steamships
between Vancouver and Yokohama, and
St. John. N. B. nud tho West Indies, ns
well na the stops taken towards establishing Anglo- Canadian nnd Canadian-
Australian cables, and fust lines of
steamships on the same routes, all attest
the forces for closer union that are at
The electors of Chilliwhack municipality met pursuant to notice, on February 10th. His Worship, Reeve Kitchen, wns elected chairman and S. A.
Cawley, secretary. On coming to order
tho chairman stated the object of the
meeting. A letter was read from Mr.
M.. H, Hirschberg, secretary of the
Vancouver association, enclosing copy
of constitution and the platform of the
"Mainland Association;" also extracts
from press reports of meetings of the
WestminBter Association. The chairman thon invited discussion on the
subject,
Mr. D. McGillivray was of the opinion
that we ought to form an association
here and did not aee the necessity of
tbo Mainland separating from the Island, because one could not very well
do without'the other; he thought tho
municipal council should make a move
to got every person in the municipality
who is eligible registered on the voters'
list; he would give the association hiB
support.
The chairman said he hod, when in
Westminster, aeen Mr. Curtis, secretary
of the Westminster association, but he
could get no further information than
what hns been sent up; he waa of the
opinion that Vancouver Ialand would
not give the Mainland thoir just rights
without a desperate effort being made
by the people of the Mainland; he
would fuvor separation from Vancouver
Island aB a last resort; he was of the
opinion that if Vancouver city succeeded In getting two members, an equal
number would be placed on Vancouver,
Ialand to balance the thing off.
Mr. A. C. Wells was under the im-
preasioh that it would be a hard matter
to get a redistribution of seats that
would be advantageous to the Mainland; if Vancouver gets two members
without an equal number being placed
on Vancouvor Island he would be surprised, but would be much pleased if
such  should  be the case.
Several other gentlemen expressed
their views on the question, and thought
it advisable to form an association here,
when it waa moved by A. Davison,
aeconded by A. C. Wells, that the elec<
tors of this municipality think It advisable to form a local association in Chilliwack municipality to co-operate with
Hko associations throughout the district
of Now Westminster, and that it be
known as tho Chilliwack Branch of the
Mainland Association."
Tho motion was carried unanimously.
The election of officers was then proceeded with, which resulted aB follows:
President, Thoa. E. Kitchen; Vice-
President, D. McGillivray; Secretary-
Treasurer. S. A. Cawley. T. E. Kitchen,
D. McGillivray and A. Davison were
elected delegates to the central executive to be hold at Westminster on the
15th inst.
Moved by D. McGillivray, seconded by
P. H. McGee, that the municipal council be requested to bear tho expenses of
tho delegates to New WestminBter, also
tho feo of $5 for entering the Mainland
Association.   Carried.
Moved bv D. McGillivray, seconded by
II. Webb, that tho municipal counoil bo
requested to take such steps aB may
seem beat to have all eligible voters in
tho municipality registered.   Carried.
Movod liy D. McGillivray, seconded by
H. Kipp, that Senator Mclnnes be re-
Suostea to urgo upon the Dominion
ovenimeiit the necessity of having the
channel of tho Fraaer improved betweon
Popcum and the moutn of the river.
Carried.
On motion the secretary-treasurer wns
instructed to Bend proceedings of the

THE DUKE  OF   CONNAUGHT.
At the meeting of the Victoria City
Council on Monday evening a communi
cation was read from Mr. H. Abbott,
Supt. of the C. P. R., stating that he
had received intimation that the Duke
of Connaught and party will leave Yokohama on the 8th of May next for Victoria
and Vancouver, and desiring to know
what arrangements tbe Council intended
to mako for a fitting reception to the
royal visitor. On motion the Mnyor
was authorized to call a public meeting
to consider the question of a reception to
the Duko of Connaught. The Royal
City, it is safe to assume, will uot desire
to miss this opportunity of according a
hearty welcome to Queen Victoria's, gallant soldier son, and our Mayor and
Council should take such steps as will
insure, if possible, that the Duke of
Connaught and party will pay a visit to
this city on their flying trip across the
continent. ^^^^^^^^^
A NOTED ECCLESIASTIC DEAD.
The despatches announce tho death of
"Father" Ignatius, a clergyman of the
English Church, well known, and highly
respected, though a somewhat eccentric
cleric. He was a thorough Ritualist,
and devout follower in the Puaeyito traditions, carrying hia ideaa to a greater
extreme than any other clergyman of
his school, not excepting the leaders of
the Tractarian movement themselves.
TbuB he founded au Anglican monastery
and, like any Benedictine friar, appended the letters O. S. B. after Iub signature. The monastic establishment collapsed for lack of persons willing to undertake the severe rule, but Father Ignatius never relaxed his own discipline
and always appeared upon public platforms in the habit similar to that of a
Roman Catholic member of the Order of
St. Bendlct, tonsured head and sandals
complete. Ab a preacher be was intensely earnest, and tho known asceticism of his life always procured him the
respect of even the most ultra-Protestant. His real name was Lester Lyne,
which he changed for Ignatius, thus
even in so small a matter adopting, with
the sacerdotal character, tho Roman
Catholic custom of changing his name.
It is remarkable that with auch extreme
views, he never left the Anglican for the
Roman Church. Aa it waa he seemed
to be a more eccentricity in the church
of which he was a minister. Strange
that having travelled so fur, he never

AN UNIQUE POLITICAL FACTOR.
would seem, be very little difficulty in
securing uniformity, since it would bo
greatly to the advantage of all concerned, but it is said there is no hope of that
desirable end being obtained until a central federal government ia established.
The gauge question, therefore, is by no
meana the least important of the several bearing on the federation scheme,
and illuBtratea most forcibly the shortsightedness and utter folly of the various rich and promising Australian colonies continuing any longer iu their present distant, and even antagonistic, relations towards each other, when by a
federation, the most natural and proper
that could be conceived, they would assist mutually in building up not only
the different parts, but a splendid Australasian Dominion, and hasten the
realization of that "noble dream"—a
Federated Britiah Empire.
The railway gauge problem is not the
only question thut is standing in the
way of the beat interests and hindering
the free and natural progress of our
antipodean friends. Another difference
which, it is generally felt, ought to be
removed, and which a federation of the
colonieB would infallibly do away with,
to the incalculable advantage of all concerned, ia thnt with regard to trade
matters. Ouo colony haa adopted the
policy of free trade while the others arc
protectionists. Sir Henry Parkes' proposals contain no suggestion as to fiscal
matters, but he doubtless contemplates
the abolition of intercolonial custom
dutiea, and is willing to allow the majority in the federation to determine the
policy to be adopted with regard to the
outside world. His general schomo, as
Ib pretty well known, itt modelled to a
great extent upon that of our own Dominion. He would have a Governor-General, who would constitute the visible
centre of power. There would be
senate and a congress or chamber of
representatives, an Australian court of
appeal, and a privy council. Each
colony would continue to have its own
legislature, but "the central parliament
"and executive would riae to a higher
"level te do tho great thinga that require
"to be done for Australia aa a nation, and
"wliich connot be done by any inferior
"power." The chief opposition to this
scheme appears to havo its foundation
in jealousy. Sir Henry is premier of
New Soutli Wales, and the governments
of the other colonies are apparently unwilling that he should have the credit
of bringing about Australia's unicy.
Among the people, too, there are doubt-
loss many who feel that the time haa
not yet arrived for federation, and that
the various portions of the country
Bhould be allowed further time for development. But Sir Henry himself
does not look for tho immediate fulfilment of his plans. Changes of bo great
an importance aro not to be made in a day,
and he Is aimply taking ample time for
preparation. Ho iB confident that federation will ultimately be brought about,
and there Ib little reason for believing
that ho is mistaken.
recourse the Times hna left but to invoke,
the witchcraft of modern science to itB
aid. Buy a phonograph, friend Times,
have it surreptitiously placed in the
Premier's bedchamber, and the tyrun-
nous and treasonable things that he says
in hiB sleep you may shout from the
housetops next day, and have indisputable evidence to shake at the Parliamentary committee when it cornea

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
SKINNING THE OAT.
It is a somewhat singular fact, ob.
scrveB an exchange, that among the differences between the Australian colonies
which have impelled the latter to take
into consideration the advisability of
federation is one which exists needlessly, and whicb it would bo greatly to the
interest of the colonies to adjust, whether anything camo of Sir Henry Parkes'
scheme or not. . It is the difference between the gauges of the railway systems
of the more important colonies. Thero
are no less than three gauges in Australia—South Australia and Victoria having one, New South Wales another, and
Queensland a third. The additional
cost of transportation and the inconvenience whioh this state of affairs entails are very great, but each colony refuses to inour the expense of adopting
its gauge to that of its neighbor, and all
continue to suffer.   There seould,  it
It is a verv small knot-hole, indeed,
which our acrobatic cotemporary, the
Times, cannot Blip itself through
stress of weather, regardless altogether,
and apparently unconscious, of the un
dignified contortions und . ludicrpus
clown acts. The latest side-show of
the Timet in ita observations in Wednesday's issue on the Premier's hearty
acceptance and effective amendment of
Mr. Semlin'a motion calling for papers
and correspondence in relation to certain severely criticised actions oftho
Education Department, and which, as
amended and passed, authorizes a select
committee of the House to investigate
tho matters touched on, with power to
examine witnesses and call for reports
and other documents. It will be remembered that for months past the columns of tho chief Opposition oracle
have just bristled with charges, &t
noarly specific as they could be made,
against the Educational Department
and particularly against the Minister of
Education. And now, when that gentle
man, who is also the Premier, shows an
anxiety to have the grounds for the
charges In question thoroughly investigated, and the inquisitorial machinery
is about to be set in motion, the Times
changes color—wo beg the Times' pardon; it has long since reached tbe unblushing stage—and tries to break the
force of its confessedly anticipated con
demnation by such painfully and ridicu
louBly desperate "stuff" ae thia:
The Premier therefore need not gloat
over the anticipated discomfiture of the
Opposition when the "correspondence"
and "orders In couucil" shall have been
ventilated in the House. Favorable as
these may be to the Govornment, what
do they prove 7 They only prove that
the Premier, ao far as his correspondence
goes, has not abused the power vested
in him. The contention will still remain good, that the union of education
with politics is unnatural and that section nine gives the Premier too. much
power. But does the Premier really
suppose that the Opposition thinks him
simple onough to put an act of tyranny
of his in writing? Does the Premier
imagine for a moment that Mr. Semlin
expects to find evidenco in this correspondence of crookedness and bulldozing.
Mr. Semlin knows but too well that if
"Honest John" haa Bulldozed a pedagogue or wheedled trustees, it was not
In the presence of an amanuensis. No,
Mr. Semlin haa not the slightest hopo of
catching the Minister of Education nap-
fiing in his correspondence. Mr. Bern-
in merely wishes to study the orthography and syntax of tho chiefs of the
Educational Department.
What sort of evidence haa tho Times
been going upon, it would be interesting
to know, as a basis for its prodigal
charges against the Education Department, when, by its own voluntary admission, it haB uo hope that the Bpeoial
committeo appointed to investigate thoae
charges, and endowed with the fullest
posaiblo powers to that end, will be able
to unearth the slightest crookedness in
the official act*, of the Education Department or the Minister? The Premior would not bo simple enough, the
Times Bays, "to put an act of tyranny of
"his in writing," nor "bulldoze a pedagogue or wheedle trustees in the presence of an amanuensis." What unadulterated rot! The Times is simply,
and altogether unnecessarily, "giving
itself away" by Hb foolish ravings, and
demonstrating how Uttle confidence even
its own writers place in the grounds of
their wholesale sud reckless accusations.
It Ib too bad about the Times. If tho

that thiB attempt to coerce bachelors into matrimony ia being mado in pursuance of the liberal policy which Wyoming has adopted with respect to "wo<
men's rights." It is a mistake, however,

THE  MARITAL  RELATION.
Associate Jtutl«e   Bradley's  Ideal  Con-
corning tho Divorce Queition.
As marriago and the family institution constitute the foundation and ohief
corner-stone of civil society, it ls of the
greatest moment that the marriage tie
should never be dissolved save for the
most urgent reason. I can not assent,
however, to the dootrine that it should
never be dissolved at all. More separation, though legalized, would often be
an inadequate and unjust remedy to
the Injured party, who would thus be
subjected to an enforced celibacy. This
might suit the notions of those who regard cellbaoy as a virtue, but would fail
to approve itself to thoao who tako a
wider and more charitable view of
human nature. The Divine law whioh
says: "What Qod hath joined together
let not man put asunder," Immediately
idds an oxception showing—what tho
taw of nature dictates—that tho caso is
not governed by any iron rule of universal application. Tho law "Thou
shalt not kill," has its necessary exceptions, a disregard of whioh would render
It mischievous in a high degree. I
know no other law on the subject but
the moral law, whioh does not consist
in arbitrary enaotmonts and deorees,
but is adapted to our oondition as human
beings. This ls so, whether itis conceived of as the will of an All-Wise
Creator, or as the voice of humanity,
speaking from its experience, its necessities and its higher instincts. And that
law surely does not demand that the
injured party to tho marriago bond
should be forever tied to one who dis-
. regards and violates evory obligation
which It imposes; to ono with whom It
is impossible to cohabit; to ono whoso
touch is contamination. Nor does it
demand that such injured party, If legally free, should be forever debarred
from forming other ties through whioh
the lost hopes of happiness for lifo may
be restored. It is not reason, and it oan
not bo law, Divino or moral, that unfaithfulness or willful and obstinate
desertion, or persistent cruelty of the
stronger party, should afford no ground
for relief. Tho most rigid creeds to
the contrary have found methods of
dispensation from the theoretical rule.
And if no redress bo legalized, the law
Itself will bo set at defiance, and greater injury to soul and body will result
from clandestine methods of rolief. Yot
so desirable is the Indissolubility of
marriage as an institution, so necessary
is It to tho happiness of families and
the good of aocioty, sopitlablo thecon-
sequenoos that often flow from a dissolution, that every discouragement to
such a remedy should bo interposed.
Not only should the judge tako ovory
caro to seo that just causo exists, but
that no other remedy is possible. No
jugglery or privacy should bo tolerated,
however high in station the parties may
be. Investigation of tho truth should
be thorough and open, and should he a
matter of public concern, participated
In by the publio roprosontatlve of tho
law. It should be regarded as a quasi-
eriminat process, If not accompanied
with criminal sanctions. Only serious
tnd oven severe methods of administering the law will be sulllciont to repress
tho growing tendency of discontented
parties to rush into the divorce uourts.

American Review.
CARRYING THEIR YOUNG.
Bow Woodcock* Carry  Their Offtprlag
from One Place to Another.
One ot the most interesting traits
about tho woodcock Is the fact of its occasionally conveying its young through
the air, whioh is done by only one or
two othor birds. This is no recent discovery. The fact was known as early as
tho middle of last contury, though Oil-
berfc White rightly surmised that those
observers woro mistaken who fancied
tho young wero conveyed either by or
in tho bill. It is just as erroneous,
howevor, to substitute the claws, as
somo havo done. Tho truth Is that,
when the parent bird wishes to convey
hor young one from a plaoe of danger
to one of safety, the tiny thing is gently
pressed betweon tho foet and against
the breast, tho aid of the bill being resorted to only when the burden has been
hastily taken up. In this way the whole
of tbe brood is sometimes removed from
one part of a wood to another when the
birds have beon much disturbed. On
this subject there is an Interesting note
in "Lays of tho Deer Forest," by the
brothers Stuart: "One morning sitting
on a gray stone, I saw a dark oyo which
was fixed upon mine from tho bed of
leaves boforo mo, whon suddenly tho
little brown head of a young woodcock
pooped out from the feathers of the old
one's breast, uttering that plaintive cry
for which language has no sign. Thero
woro two moro young woodcocks, and to
relievo tho anxiety of tho maclre, r loft
hor. Noar tho placo whero I found her
thore was a soft, green strip, such as
woodcocks lovo. I had no doubt that
tho family would be thero next day; and
as I passed near I turnod aside to seo
what thoy wore doing. Upon a dry bank
half way down tho brae, I almost Htum-
blod ovor a bird, which rose at my feot;
and as it darted through the trees I saw
that it had something in its claws, and
at the same time I heard tho plalntlvo
cry of young woodcocks just under my
feet. I looked down—thoro wero two;
and I thought a hawk had carried oft
the third, and perhaps killed tiic mothor.
This, however, I found on following tho
bird, was thoold woodcock, which, boing
Hushed again suddonly, after a low flight
of only a few yards dropped what it was
carrying—hor own young woodcock."
This trait may bo confirmed by any ono
who will look out tho bird in Its
haunts, and is all the more interesting
asitsooms to bo an acquired ono. The
bird is in no way adapted to transport
its young through tho air.—Tho Gentleman's Magazine.
ABOUT   PERSPIRATION.
An Organ of Eli min.iti mi I.lko the Lungs
and tlie Kidney*.
Naturo has expended muoh labor ou
tho perspiratory system—has constructed
for each of us many miles of tubing and
millions of secreting glands, eaoh
furnished with its tiny blood-vessel
regulated by itB microscopic norvo.
" Not only does this system perform an
essential service ln keeping tho bodily
tomporaturo down to the normal pointof
safety, ninety-eight degrees Fahrenheit.
by the evaporation of tho perspired fluid,
but It Ib also an organ of elimination
like the kidnoys and tho lungs.
An adult oxcrotos a full pound of sweat
daily, and thiB maybo increased to three
or four pounds. From this faot may be
understood both the danger of suddenly
chocking tho outflow of tho poisonous
material, and tho advantago, when one
has taken cold, of the Russian bath.
Tho quantity and character of tho fluid
render a frequent change of clothing a
matter of no small importance.
Some diseases, as acute rheumatism,
phthisis, general debility, aro accompanied by oxcessivo perspiration, which is
also sometimes purposely induced by
tho use uf certain drugs callod diaphoretics. As we aro all aware, the
amountof perspiration is abnormal In
hot woathor. The heat of a muggy day
is aggravated and mado more oppressive
by the slow evaporation from tho surface of the body. Tho atmosphere is
too fully charged wltb moisturo to
vaporize the sweat.
Excessive sweating is sometimes partial, being limited to the Boles, palms,
or to ono-half ef the faco, hood or body,
apd that, too, without any discoverable
cause. Tho touching of one side of the
tonguo with salt will sometimes cause a
profuse perspiration upon the cprro-
spondlllff Hide of tho body.
Perspiration may also bo deficient
This is generally tho oase in diseases of
tbe kidneys, in tho early stages of fevor,
and ln certain skin diseases. Whon tho
sebaceous or oil secretion is deficient,
there ls apt to be a like doficionoy in
tbe perspiration, rendering tbe skin
dry and rough.
Perspiration may havo an offensive
odor, especially that which Is secreted
by the arm-pits, feot and toes, 'Die
sweat and tho sobaceous secretion
undergo a chemical change into tho fatty acids, somo of which aro like thoso
found In rancid buttor. This condition
Is Bometimos duo to lowered vitality of
tbe system. Tho affected parts should
be repeatedly washed with tar soap, and
tbe linen frequently changed. The
soles of tho stockings should bo daily*
disinfected with a saturated solution of
boraclc aold, Cork solos should bo worn

AN  EDITOR'S TALK.
e   Tells   What    NnmoA    Are    Popular
Among Nu-dillt'd Literary Women.
An Old Editor: I wondor if any
woman ovor liked her own namo? When
I was in the harness I usod to bavo to
read all tho manuscript that came totho
oflice. MoBt of our contributors woro
women. Women, I havo sometimes
thought, aro naturally inclinod to literature. I never know ono who didn't
drift Into writing for the press if sho
had tho slightest encouragement And
when they begin to write of courso tlio
tli'Bt thing tiiey do ia to select a nom de
plume. Tnese assumed names used to
ain uso mo and I took a tunny ouo day to
koop track of thom for one yoar. At.
tiio expiration of that tlmo I discovered
that tho damo "Maude" Jed tho list.
The next was "Lillian," and thon they
suamperod off into the realms of fiction.
"Uoulfth," "Mispah," "Rowonn," and
tho liko. Occasionally 1 found one who
assumed a cominouplaco tag. and I
noticed that such a one, as a rule, generally mado hor way to tho front. I
wonder whatever became of that long
procession of sorrowful-loo1 king creatures who used to como to my desk with
great bundles of manuscript und beseech mo to examine it and uso it, at
the same timo telling me of tho sick
children at home who were famishing
for bread, and who couldn't got any until "this arLielo" was printed. At first
1 was soft-hearted and listened to thoso
appeals, but soon found that 1 had moro
manuscript on hand than wo had columns in the paper. Thon I grow hardhearted. For Instance, I would ask ono:
owmany ehildron havo you?" If sho
said moro than two I askod their names.
Then 1 would ask tho nature of their
diseases nud sho would toll me. I would
tako the story and label it, "Katie—
measles." Then of the noxt applicant
tbo samo query. Then tbe label,
"Johnny—tho mumps," and then I
would lay tho MSS. away in a pigeonhole and occasionally I would look them
over and wondor how tbo Invalid corps
wero progressing. When I folt a littlo
womanish in my heart I would soleot
tho "disease" .whioh I thought was most
dangerous and uso it And thon I used
to watoh the. obituary oolumn. But I
never saw the announcement ot the
death of any of tho starving ones whose
names were on the parchment in my
pigeon-holes.—Chicago Tribune.
ESQUIMAU SOOIETY.
How Love Grows and Thrives Among tbe
People of Greenland.
Dr. Nansen read an interesting paper
on the Esquimaux in the Anthropological section of the Bri1 ish Association.
He modestly disclaimed any knowledge of anthropology, and confined his
remarks to a few faots regarding tbo
life and customs of the Esquimaux.
Limiting his observations to the inhabitants of Greenland, some of whom,
he promised, came originally from
North America, he divided them into
two classes, civilized and uncivilized,
exhibited a spooimon of their picturesque costumes and desoribed their customs and modo of lifo. He mentioned
that the people in one part of the country took two years to journey to tho
nearest merchant's shop and two years
to return. Tho people had no written
laws, but they wore orderly and law-
abiding. Tho Eastern Esquimaux had
warmer clothes than the Western
Esquimaux, whore many of them had
nothing on a portion of the leg. Tho
young girls woro their hair loose, and
it was tied up into a high knot to show
that they wero ready for marriage.
When an Esquimau man fell in love
with a woman he did not go and pour
passionate utterances into her ear—ho
simply took her by the hair of the head
and dragged or pulled hor to his hut.
Of course a woman in Greenland must,
aB in all othor places, pretend not to liko
it. The women were not considered well
educated if they did not run baok homo
two or threo Minos aftor being dragged
away. If thoy ran away too often the
men did not liko it There Is tbe case
of a man going-over and ovor again to
drag the girl of his choice to his hut, but
she always ran baok. He desisted
some Mine, and again tried. Tho girl's
frionds saw him in the distanco, and
tbey protected hor at her request Ho
wont away without bor, and tbo noxt
day she was missing—she had gone to
comfort her broken-hearted lover. The
himband's labor was on thesoa, and after
tbo game was caught tho womon looked
after it Tho men In the houso were, as
a rule, very lazy—tboy did nothing but
oat and look after their weapons. The
women woro always working—either
sewing, spinning, making clothes or
busy in household work. Thoy looker]
well after thoir children, of whom they
-vero very fond. The men, as a rule,
married early—as soon as they could
catch seals enough to provido for a wife
and family. Tho reasons they gave for
marrying were to have tho skins of the
seals attended to and to keep their
clothes in order—of courso. there wero
other reasons.
It very often happened that good
catchers on tho East coast had two
wivoa. Caaea of more tban two wives
wero not known, The reason given for
more than ono wife was that one
wife oould not preparo the skins of
tho seals caught, and also that
two women had to bo used to pull tho
"boat. SqmeUraes one wife, when Bho
could not manago the work and the
house, asked her husband to take
anothor wife. Husband and wifo did
not kiss, but saluted by pressing noses.
Parents novor punished thoir children,
and be nover heard an Esquimau speak
angrily to his children. In spite of
this the youngsters behaved" vory woll.
A mother suckled hor child two years.
He had aoon a strapping little fellow
eating broad, standing by hia mother's
lap and taking fluid from the maternal
fount Young girls very ofton got
small knives and loarnod how to preparo skins. This was vory important to
the young women, as thoy had to manage the cutting of tho skins. 'Unvoting boys woro also taught to catch
seals. Thore wore, of courso, weak
children, deformed ones, and thoso who
lost their mothers. These woro usually
thrown outside oftho houso or into the
sea. This wbb, of course, a vory good
arrangement, but rather cruel from their
point of viow. This practico was indulged in in ordor to get as strong boy:;
and ohildren aa posaiblo. Hospitality
in Greenland was greater than anywhere
else.—Edinburgh Scotsman.

A  PRAYER  ANSWERED.
An Elder Who Hid Not Rejuct Aid Providentially Sent.
Elder John Stopheus held a pastorate
InthoFroo BaptiBt church at Gardiner
forty-odd years ago. Nature, says the
Jjowiston (Me.) Journal, had dealt generously with Elder John. His big heart
was Incased in an iron frame of mammoth proportions. Remarkable alike
for sincere piety and genuine humor, the
good man so tempered hiB teachings as
to make them acceptable to saint and
sinner. Riding one day along the road
to West Gardiner ho overtook an ox-
team that was stuck in the mud. The
discouraged cattle had refused to pull,
and tho driver, who had sworn till the
air was blue, was preparing to reel off
another string of oaths when the parson stopped his horse and said: "Try
prayer, my friond.  Try prayor,"
"Try It yourself," retorted the vexed
teamster.
"I'll do it," said Elder John, and
dropped on his knees ln the wagon.
For awhllo ho prayed around his subject as If afraid to touch it. Gradually,
however, his faith strengthened, and ln
a voico whioh bade fair to arouse the
neighborhood he besought the owner of
the cattle on a thousand hills to move
tile hearts and legs of those stubborn
oxen. The prayer was unconscionably
long, and no sooner had it ended than
the impatient driver prepared to start
his team.
"Stop," said Elder John, descending
from his wagon; "as I havo done the
praying I feel that I ought to do the
driving. You hold my horse and give
ino the goad stick."
Tho man consented to the arrangement, and with a grin waited to see the
parson worsted. At that moment another ox team was seon approaching
from another direction,
"Hello, neighbor!" the practical
parson shouted to tho newcomer. "Lend
me your cattle for a moment."
"Hold ont" cried the owner of the
mired cart. "That's no fair. If you
oan handle this team better by praying
than I can by swearing I want to soo
you do it; but no doubling up, mind
you; no doubling up,"
Elder John's robust figure was drawn
to its fullest height and his voice was
like the roar of the ocean as he answered:
SOUTHERN  CHILDREN.
They   Were  Taught  to  Be   Polite   and
Treated Every llody Respectfully.
Children in tho South wero taught respect for tholr elders, blaok or white.
Disrespectful language to elderly persons, or, as tho negroes said, "sassln' uv
old ptiBSons," was punished more severely thon almost any othor juvenile offense No well-bred child ever failed to
say "yes'm," "no, ma'am," or "yes, sir,'
'no, sir,"
I think no Northern custom strikes a
Bou ther n-bied peraon so unpleasantly ns
the froedom wtth which thu children
say "yes," "no" and "whnt" to their
elders—though I know It Is quito tin
custom to ridicule the addition of "sir"
1 "ma'am" aB old-fashioned and rural.
The young children called the oldei
ones "brother" and "sister" as a term
of respect A young lady wus always
called "miss" by her child acquaintances—"Miss Annie," "Miss Sallio,"
not "Miss Brown" or "Miss Smith."
She was addressed so by her gentlemen
friends as well, nothing short of an engagement or the closest intimacy justifying tbo freedom of oalling ber by her
name,—Home-Maker.

Lang. Harper'* Magazine has also made speoial
HUMOR OF THE 8COT8.
Ik Dot* Not Seem to Ba of a Very Lively
Ch»raet<>r<
In order to disprove tbo frequent assertion that the Scotch are not humorous, says the New York Sun, the editor
of a Scottish papor recently declared his
columns open, and invited all tho jokes
ot the poopio whioh his constituents
would send to him. Theae are fair samples of what woro handed ln:
"Two hoys having met a man ln white
spats,' one of them said ho woro 'white
penter's brooks below his lther anes.'"
"This Is but the forefront of the battlo—'tis rare, what this boy said 'In a
waggery.'"
"A woman, having foresworn whisky
In a glass, drank it out of a oup."
'A man took the hat worn by a scarecrow."
Whisky having been ordered for an
outward application, the patient drank
lt."
A boy, being aaked if he had 'passed
the doctor'—ln a modlual examination
—said: 'Yea, I passed blm up at Cooh-
rane's corner.'"
"A woman ina shop, wishing to ask
for a dolman, asked for a donkey."
"A horse falling down dead, a man
asked: 'Did it ever do that before?'"
"Heaven was defined as a plaoe where
■whisky ls plentiful and policemen are
scarce.'"
"Have you seen Tom since ho left?'
•No; but I'm gaun tae write tae him tae
apoir his address?'"
Intellectually the Scotoh aro one of
the very greatest people ln tho world,
but they don't seem to be very funny,
arrangements with Alphonse Daudet, the greatest of living French novelists, for tbe exclusive
publication, ln serial form, of a humorous story
to be entitled "The Colonists ofTarascon: the
Laat adventures of tbe Famous Tartarin." The
story will be translated by Henry James, and
illustrated by Rossi and Myrbacb.
W. D. Howells will contribute a novelette in
threo parts, and Lafeadlo Hearn a novelette in
two parts, entitled "Youma," handsomely illustrated.
In illustrated papers, touching subjects of
current interest, and in Its short stories, poems,
and timely articles, the Magazine will maintain
ita well-known standard.

. A man waB arrested at Hyack Hall

adjourned till to-morrow morning.
Sing Kee saved $600 by being present at

TROUBLE AT THE MISSION.
HIGHBINDERS QUARREL.
Ami the Grand Master Loses A Slice of
His Chin.
There wob more excitement yeBterday
in Chinatown than for many a long day,
and all because two prominent Chinese
Freemasons had a murderous quarrel.
Foo You is the Grand Master of Chinese
MnaoiiB, or Highbinders, for thiB district, nnd us such he is reverenced to a
surprising extent among all classes of
Mongolians. His person is considered
sacred, and, as a rule, he can attack and
punish u refractory member of the craft
without subjecting himself to the danger
of tlio blows being returned,
YeBterday afternoon Foo You and
common Highbinder named Gee Chung
had a little dispute over some niatter
which has not been made public—although the results have. Foo You pro*
ceeded to chastise Gee Chung, but the
latter refused to submit to the infliction
without making making a show at defence, The Grand Muster was the more
powerful man, however, and he was
rapidly getting the better of his antagonist, who had never practiced the
"manly art." Finully Gee Chung could
stand the belaboring no longer, and,
picking up an axe that lay conveniently
near at hand, he swung it with all his
might und brought it down iu the direction of Ah Foil's bead. Luckily the
lutter dodged, otherwise the blow would
have brained him; sb it wns the uxe
took a neat slice of flesh from the Grand
Master's chin, and he drooped to the
floor hors de combat.
Supposing that he hud killed Foo You,
the nxe-wielder dropped Iub weapon and
fled for his life, and lias not been seen
or heard ol since. Ab soon as the
wounded man recovered from his fright,
ho had his face patched up by a CelcB*
tiul surgeon and went and laid an information against the would-be murderer. A warrant was issued against
Gee Chung, but it hns not been executed, aB liis whereabouts cannot be
ascertained by the police.
A DOMINION MINT.
An Aie-handle l'lays a Lively Part in a
Milesian Discussion.
Mr. Benjamin Murphy, a settler from
the Mission, laid an information this
before Capt. Pittendrigh, against
Micheal Cleary, another settler near the
same place, for un assault the latter is
Baid to hnve commited on the 7th inst.
Tho facts of the case so far as could be
obtained are as follows: Some friend of
Cleary informed him thut Murphy hud
been telling people that he (Cleary) wus
a coward aim n liar. This annoyed nnd
aggravated Cleary to bucIi an extent that
he selected a stout axe handle, und bo the
story goes, went out und luy in wait for
histruducer. He wanted to show Murphy that he wub uo coward, and when
Murphy put in an appearance he sallied
out and gave him a regular old-fashioned
heating, using the axe-handle with sueh
telling effect thut Murphy's head and
body, to say nothing of liis arms und
legs, were soon covered with bumps nnd
bruises innumerable. In vain did Murphy protest thnt he hud never uttered
one syllable against Cleary, and never
would, but theae statements had no effect, and the beating kept on until fatigue ended it.
Mr. Murphy presented a rather dolu-
pidated appearance this morning when
lie laid the information, and his head
certainly showed that it had received
harsh, not to say violent, treatment.
The proper papers were issued, and Mr.
Cleary will be summoned to appear at
the District Court on Monday and explain his conduct.

Many of those holding claims at Texada Island state they intend to open up

up last fall, that are said to be richer
than any yet discovered, and they are

On the Oth of February, Senator Mclnnes gave notice in the Senate of the
following motion, for consideration on
Thursday  (yeaterday), the 14th  inst
Resolved as the opinion of this House,
thut (in view of the large production
and exportation of gold and silver, the
increasing population, the high financial
standing and commercial importance of
Canada,) it ia both desirable und expedient that the govercment should immediately pass a Coinuge Act and establish
a mint.
Commenting upou this motion, the
Mail saya: "Senator T. R. Mclunes, of
"British Columbin, while not at all an
"orthodox believer in the beauties of
"the National Policy, thinks nevertheless that bo long na it is the policy of
"the country it should be complete. If
''we ure to be ull things to ourselves, be
"sees no good reason why we should de-
"pend for our coinuge on u foreign Btate,
"The Canadians have no national gold
"coinage. We have to look to Washing*
"ton for that commodity. Our silver
"coins are made at the English mint,
"nnd our copper coins are turned out by
"a Brummugen manufacturer. All
"these metals, ure produced in Canada,
"and the worthy Pacific slope Senator
"thinks thnt our population is numerous
"enough, our financial standing suffici-
"ently high, and our commercial pros*
"perity such us to warrant the Govern*
"ment in passing a Coinage Act and es*
"tablishing u mint. He claims thut it
"would udd nt least five per cent, to tli
"value of nil precious metals produced
"in Canada. In the days of British Col*
"imiliia ns a Crown colony a mint was
"iu existence there, nnd Bnrely, he snyB,
"the great Dominion, of which British
"Columbia is only it part, has reached
"the stago to add this feature to the
"Nutionnl Policy." And who will deny
that the Senator is on the right "track"
iu this mint buainea?

HIS FRIEND'S SON.
That'* Why the Lawyer Was Glad to
Oblige Hia Client.
A young man visits tlio office of an attorney, Bays tho New York Herald, and
gives him a claim of 9100 to collect.
"Your name?" asks the dlsciplo of
Blackstono.
"Elijah Simpson," is the reply,
"Not the Bon of my old friend Lige
Simpson? Yes? Well, you don't know
how glad I am to meet my old friend's
son. Give me your hand," and he wrings
the young man's hand with the utmost
effusion, adding: "I hopo you will come
in and see me often. It will be a treat
for me, I assure you, to have an opportunity of conversing with you about
your father."
A week later young Elijah calls again.
The lawyer rushed toward to greet him,
seizes both his hands and shakes them,
repeating his good wishes over and over,
and expressing his great pleasure at
having had it in his power to nerve
Lige'sson.
"Then you have the money for me?"
suggests Simpson.
"Certainly, certainly. Here it is,"
and he hands an envelope carefully
sealed to the young fellow, who tears it
open and finds five five-dollar bills.
"Where's the rest?" asks Elijah.
"Oh, my fee is 881," is the reply. '
As Simpson edges toward the door he
Bays to his father's friend: "I guess I'm
lucky to get 825. I'm awfully glad you
didn't know my grandfather."
Ears That Were Remarkable.
Francisque Sarcey, a prominent Frenoh
oritio, owns a pair of the largest ears
that ever graced a human cranium,
numskull once made an impertinent allusion to them. "You are perfectly
right, Blr," replied Sarcey, "I have ears
remarkahlyhlgforaman; but you must
allow that you have a pair that aro re-
markably smoll for an ass."
