IMiouMlng th* Contract.
Chicaoo, Mar. 1.—The news of the
lease of the Alaska seal Islands to the
North America Commercial Co., of New
York and San Francisco, is being discussed with a good deal of interest by
citisens of Chicago. A company with
the same name was organized in Clticago
and expected to secure the contract. All
Chicago members of the corporation were
in Washington a few days ago, aiid the
inference drawn from the news received,
Is that they may have made a combination with their namesake company.
Color is given to the rumor from various
sources, but nothing will be definitely
known until they return.
Washington, Feb. 28.--Secretary Windom to-day awarded the contract for the
seal fisheries to the North American
Commercial Company, of New York and
San Francisco, for 20 years. The following is a copy of the letter awarding the
contract: "Washington,D. C, Feb. 28.
—Mr. J. Liebes, President of the North
American Commercial Company, of New
York and San Francisco: Sir—After
careful consideration of all the proposals
for the privilege of taking fur souls upon
the islands of St. Paul aud St. George,
Alaska, received in response to the advertisements of the Treasury Department of December 24th, 1880, and January 20th, 1890, and opened at the
Treasury Department, tebruary 21st,
1890, at 12 o'clock noon. I have accepted the proposal (marked in tho schedule
of bids aB No. 11) by the North American Commercial Company of New York
and San Francfsco, aud I have awarded
the privileges contemplated to the
North American Commercial Company
aforesaid. A lease in duplicate will bo
prepared at an early day by the department. I am very respectfully yours,
William Windom, Secretary."
The company made three proposals for
the privilege. The one accepted by the
Secretary ib known sb bid No. 11 and
differs from the other two iu being an
offer without conditions.    Among the
other things the company agrees, as far
us may bo practicable and consistent
with their interests,  to encourage the
Ruin Predicted.
Han Francisco, Mar. 1.—Rain is predicted for the   following twenty-four
hours.

Washington, Mar. I,—Secretary Proc

They Feel Bad.
San Fkancisco, Feb. 28.—The announcement that the Alaska seal fisheries contract hod been awarded to the
North American Commercial Company
created no surprise among the sealing
element iu this city. "It wns just what
wo expected," said Louis Gerstle, of the
Alaska Commercial Company. "We
had given up hopes two or threo days
ago. Just after tho bids wero opened I
was convinced that we would not get it,
and yot I say that wo offered all that
we reasonably could and still make a
profit out of the business. The fur business is oue of the most deceptive in
tlie world. Fashions change more abruptly than in any other trade. The
demand is capricious and oven tho
most careful operator is likely to lose
monov at times. To what extent this
operates, is shown by the fact that in
two years we voluntarily cut the skins
taken on the Islands from 100,000 to 75,-
000 in order to protect ourselves. Thon,
too, the preserves are not as valuable as
they once were. The poachers have
played sad havoc, and altogether we offered aB much as we could, I do not see
how the North American Company is
going to make any money at the figures
they put iu, judging from our own experience in the fur business, but thoy no
loubt have their profits figured out.1'

PROVINCIAL PARLIAMENT.
Tlnirsiliij-'n   Proceeding*! Continued.
\Froin Our Own Correspondent.]
Mr. Cunningham asked leave to ii
troduce a bill to amend the Vancouver
Corporation Act. Bill read a drat time
and referred to the committee on private
bills. Mr. Orr strenously objecteJ to
the introduction of any amendments to
this bill. A warm discussion ensued
between Messrs. Cunningham nnd Orr
Over this objection.
Mr. Martin asked leave to introduce
it bill to amend the Vancouver Water
Works Company Act. Bill read a first
time and referred to the committee on
private bills.
Mr. Martin asked leaveto introduce a
bill to enable certain parties to mine
certain lands opposite Vale. Bill read
a first time and referred to the Private
Bills committee.
Hon. Mr. Beaven rose tu a question of
privilego and drew attention to a communication which had appeared in that
morning _ Colonist, signed by Edwin
Johnson, and in reference to the payment of tho Government Commissioner
iu tho consolidation of the statutes of
1888. The honorable gentleman entered
Into an exhaustive explanation ofhiB
position and attacked the honorable, the
Attorney-General in many heavy
charges for his share in the affair.
Hon. Mr. Davie replied iu kind and
quoted unnumbered authorities and references aud fluid that the Government
did not propose to pay for anything so
grossly inaccurate ns those consolidated
statutes. They had been notoriously
inaccurate in their work nud the Government had excellent reasons to offer
for refusing payment. He regretted to
see a man of Johnson's standing in the
community exposing himself in the
newspaper as ho had done in such an
utterly untruthful manner. That the
the charges made in that communication are utterly untruthful will be
proved whon the correspondence and
documents relating to tlie affair are
brought down, and thnt will he immediately. He suggested that the honorable, tho leader of the Opposition, move
a resolution to the effect that these
documents and papers be brought down
at once.
Hon. Mr. Beaven said he had no objection to adopt the suggestion of the
honorable, the Attorney-General, he
had only judged of the case by the letter
in the newspaper.
Mr. Orr asked leave to introduce a
bill to incorporate the British Columbia
Jockey Club.
Bill read a fi»*st timo and reforred to
the private bills committee.
Mr. Cunningham moved the following
resolution: That the House resolve itself
intojhmjntittee of the whole to con-
_'de____H__W_*>mg resolution: That it
" jownship or district
empowered to
..__liJft-_^^_^^^jl^or a retail
HquoT^^fc-SiHR __-JtH_H-*ji  1  of
section 108 ol
to not 16sa than
than one hundred
months.
After a lively debate  the n
was lost.
Air. Duck asked leave to introduce
bill intituled " An Act respecting the
University of British Columbia."
Bill read a first time and will be read
a second time on Monday.
Mr. Cunningham moved the second
reading of tho Westininster Light and
Power Company's bill. Bill read a
second time and committeed, Mr. Grant
in the chair. During the reading of this
bill in committee au interesting historical reminiscence of moro than ordinary
interest to at least ono member of the
House was by some means uueiirthed,
namely the burning in effigy of the honorable the leader of the Government at
Westminster several years ago. Mr.
Cunningham, with all the eloquence for
which ho bears so wide a reputation,
warmly assured the honorable the Premier that the people of Westminster
had neither act nor part In that disgraceful scene, and that it waB the deed
of a number of ferocious miscreants who
infest all large centres of population.
The honorable victim of the scorch by
proxy smiled and shook his bend and
Bifid he waa just a Uttle afraid1 that that
explanation would not go down: if the
people of Westininster were not guilty
of the insult they should have made a
itiblic avowal of their innocence nud uot
iy silence seem to given tacit patronage
to tlie affront.
Mr. Cunningham again asserted that
a parcel of unhanged blackguards, over
whom the police had uo control, had
perpetrated the idiotic eccentricity nnd
the law-abiding nnd peneenblo citizens
of Westminster were blamed therefor.
Still the honorable the leader of tho
Government maintained the sume imperturbable, sceptical smile nnd slowly
shook his head.
Hon. Mr. Beavon took occasion to compliment Mr. Cunningham ou being the
tirst to introduce a bill into the House,
in which the Chinese question was dealt
with in so rigorous a manner. There
could be no doubt that the sentiments
expressed in the bill regarding that people were obtaining in the province more
strongly evory day.
Under the masterly chairmanship of
Mr. Grant the hilt was pushed through
tho committoe in a way to make the
average alderman's head swim. Committee rose and reported the bill complete without amendments, and the report will bo considered at the next Bitting of tlie Houae.
Tlie report of the committee ou the
Coquitlam Water Works will be eimsid-

Siberian Outrage*
London, Feb. 28.—Further particulars
of the outrages in Kara have just rench
ed here. The third meeting among the
prisoners was to obtain the removal of
the odious Governor Masnkoff, who hnd
ordered that a ludy ahould be dragged
from her bed in her night-dress and
stripped. After being subjected to the
grossest insults she was decked in prison
ffiirb. The first atrike of tbe prisoners
listed 18 days, and ended in Masnkoff
tendering his resignation which Gover-
nur Korf refused to accept. The second
Btrike lasted 8 days, when Masukoffgave
out that ho had been ordered to another
prison. When this was found to have
no foundation tho third strike,
which lasted twenty-two days, occurred. The prison surgeon asserted
thnt Mme. Slgfdn was to ill to be Hogged
uud reported that her heart was weak,
He expressed tiie opinion that to'further carry out the sentence would bo
illegal. Shnmlting, chief director of
tho prison, upon being informed of this,
sent the following message: "Execute
tho sentenco without tho surgeon's presence." The superintendent still hesitated and tho official who administered
the first flogging applied the lash lu the
aecond instance.

standing committee on railways, in reference to the British Columbia and Carbonate Mountain Railway Company.
Report received and adopted.
Mr. Martin presented the report of
the Committee on Standing Orders and
Private Bills, that the rules had been
complied with in the bill for the incorporation of the News-Advertiser Company.   Report received.
The Hon. Mr. Davie moved, seconded
by Mr. Duck, the following resolution:
That the return of the number of voters ou the respective voters' lists of euch
of the electoral districts of the Province,
ordered by this house on the 7th February inst., shall embrace thoae persons
on the list up to and including the 28th
Februnry, 1890.
Mr. Ladner asked the honorable the
Attorney-general if he would amend tlie
resolution by including in it tho names
of those who had applied for privilege
to vote. There were many people who
hud given in their names but who were
not yet ou the list, and to be accurate
theso names would have to be included
in tho returns.
Mr. Orr asked if these lists, up to Feb,
28th, 1890, were to be taken as a basis
ou which to judge of the voting power of
the districts.
Hon. Mr. Davie—This has nothing
whatever to do with the queation. The
honorable member had asked a similar
question earlier in the session and had
received hia answer.
Mr. Semlin drew attention to the
difficulty of obtaining tho various lists
from the inland districts, and the probable incompleteness of the flame.
Hon. John Robson said the object of
the houae was to get aB much information on thiB subject as poaaible. We
have no census and thiB means of ascertaining the voting power of the province
would inevitably supply much useful information. In several of the inland districts of the mainland great negligence
had been displayed in tlds particular.
Mr. Smith said that the voters' list
would be no criterion and that it was
impossiblo to get those lists in before the
time specified in a district of such dimensions ns Lillooet.
Hon. Johu Robson moved in amendment that" all applications to be placed
on the register up to the date named."
Mr, Duck said this ought to come fn  •
in the form of a distinct resolution and
considered the amendment out of order
as it stood.
Hon. Mr. Davie thought the amendment not german to the resolution.

ing to escape the onerous work of Bpecial
jurists; they were all business men and
their timo had been heavily trenched
upon and they naturally enough had
objections to serving.
The original motion was carried.
Mr. Orr rose to a question of privilege
and claimed that the returns presented
in compliance with an order of the
House in reference to certain lands out
of the railway belt conveyed to the Province of British Columbia, was incomplete. The names of those to whom the
lands were subsequently conveyed and
the money received for-the samo wero
not given. The Hon. Mr. Davie asked
leave to introduce a bill entituled "An
Act to amend the Sheriffs' Act. Bill
read a first time and will come up for
second perusal Monday.
House went into adjourned committee
on the Railway Bill, Mr. Cunningham
in the chair. Committee rose and reported progress and asked leave to sit
again on Monday.   Report received.
The adoption of the further report on
the Legal Professions Act was postponed
until the next sitting of the House.
The further report of the medical Act
next came up and the title passed.
Mr. Haslam moved the second reading
of the Mischievous Animals Act. Carried and committed; Mr. Thompson in
the chair.
Committee rose and reported the bill
complete with amendments. Report

Mr. Orr moved that House go into

Hon. Mr. Dnvie nsked the indulgence
of the honorable, tho lender of the On-
position iu a matter, although slightly
out of order ho hoped tho honorable
gentleman would overlook that circumstance. It was in referonco to that
gentleman's notice of motion to move a
resolution regarding the consolidation
of the statutes; he would nsk the honorable gentleman to move it uow Instead
of Monday.
Hon. Mr. Beaven said he was happy
to meet the honorable, tho Attorney-
General in this matter and had pleasure
in moving the suspension of the standing orders that the resolution might be
introduced. Carried, and the following
resolution read:
That a respectful address be presented
to His Honour the Lieutenant-Governor, requesting him to cause to be sent
down to the House copies of all Ordcra-
in-Council, letters and documents relating to the consolidation of the statutes
of 1888 and payment of the commis-
sionej- therefor.   Carried.
Hon. Mr. Davie said that he would
reiterate the statements he had made
tho day before that the letter taken exception to by tho honorable the leader
of the Opposition was utterly untruthful. He would not at that' Into hour
enter into nny minute particulars but
would merely sny that while no objection had been made to payment by the
government on the ground thnt those
consolidated statutes were imperfect,
yet those irregularities complained of
did exist. Whon the matter came before tlio tribunal for judgment those
inaccuracies would be plainly laid bare.
Those irregularities impaired the usefulness of the work of the commissioner.
These inaccuracies had only been pnr-
tinlly discovered when tho offer to tho
Government was made. The claim then
made was exorbitant. The honorable
gentleman then took up the consolidated statutes and went deep into detail on
tho matter. He showed by many examples that the inaccuracies referred to
were really of a most ludicrous description nnd tno result of gross and culpable
carelessness.   Revision, he explained, iB

THE B. C. SOUTHERN.
The question introduced iuto the Local House on Thursday last by Col.
Baker's resolution, which we published
yesterday, is one which concerns the
Province as well as the railwny company
nnd the locality moat interested. The
resolution, taken together with the preamble and the mover's remarks, places
tlie matter pretty clearly beforo the public, and might be summarised as follows;
A company, now known ns the "British
" Columbia Southern Railway Com-
" pany," and composed of "Joshua Da-
" vies, Thomas BrighuniHall and Charles
" Wilson, all of the City of Victoria, Brit-
"ish Columbia; Daniel C. Corbin, of
"New York City; A. A. Newberry and
" Albert Allen, of Spokane Fulls, Wash-
" ington, lu the United States; together
" with sueh persons as may become
" shareholders in the company," haa
filed applications at the present sessions
of both the Dominion and Provincial
Parliaments for charters to construct
what in the original applications waB
termed two lines of railway, viz., tlie
South Kootenay Railway and the West
Kootenay Railway, and forming altogether a connected line from a point on
the international boundary line, at the
intersection of that lino with the Pen
d'Oreille River, to the town of Nelson
in British Columbia; thence to the
western terminus of the Crow.s Nest
Railwny, from the boundnry line at the
intersection of the Kettle River, and
thence eaat, by way of Rock Creek and
Osooyoos Lake, to the Fraser River near
its mouth, or to the most convenient
harbor on the seaboard of British Co*
hiinbia, and also a branch line to the
south end of Okanagon Lake. Ab this
line touches the boundary at more than
one point and connects with the American saystem of railways south, the Dominion Parliament, by virtue of the B.

ito detent  tho passing of
bills.   Hence the reso
lutionEtfbved by Col. Baker in the Local
Hon*' on Thursday and unanimously
adopted:
Therefore be it resolved, that uu humble address be presented to His Honor,
the Lieutenant-Governor, praying tliat
His Honor will without prejudice to Provincial rights immediately move tlio Dominion Government, that tlio charters
applied for bv the "Spokane Falls and
Northern Railway Co." (another name
for the "British Columbia Southern Railway Company"] may be granted: Provided always, that clauses be inserted
compelling the company to commence
work this year on both lines, that is to
say: from Pend d'Oreille towards Nelson ; from Kettle River to the west; and
from Vancouver to the east; that work
should be continued concurrently from
all these points; that the railway to the
western terminus of the Crow's Nest
line should be completed in four years,
and the railway to the west in six yeara
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; and that a copy of this resolution be at once transmitted by telegraph
to the Dominion Government.
It is earnestly to be hoped, in tlie interests of the whole southern section of
the Province—one of the very richest in
varied natural resources, and which the
proposed lineB of railway would assist
most materially aud rapidly to open up
and develop—that tlie request of the
petitioners for incorporation, backed by
the unanimous resolution of the Provincial House as above, may not be disregarded by the Dominion Parliament,
but that the charters asked for may be
granted. The matter is one" affecting
Provincial interests entirely (with the
exception, perhaps, ot a certain Canadian railway corporation), and the Provincial Assembly, the body certainly
most qualified to speak on the subject,
has given uu unanimous expression in
favor of tbe granting of the charters in
question, and, it will be admitted, has,
by the resolution above quoted, imposed
sufficiently stringent conditions to insure good faith on thu pnrt of the company.
It would he difficult, on these grounds,
to Bee how the Federal power could justify itself iu auy other courso but that of
acquieaence iu tho manifest and declared public desire aud interest in the
matter. This is what It must come to
finally in any event, as past experience
with disallowance, in Manitoba and lu
the case of our own southern railway—
the Westminster Southern—has sufficiently demonstrated. It is to he hoped,
then, that no vexatious and unnecessary hindrances may be thrown in the
way of railway enterprises, that promise
to be largely and s|>eedily beneficial to
the Province, by tbe Federal Parliament. No good can come from auch a
policy at the present time, any more
than in the past; but, on the contrary,
much dissatisfaction, und no little injury both to Provincial and Dominion
interests. ^^____^-^^_
A peculiar feature of the contest in
Northumberland, N. IJ., is that both the
candidates have changed sides since the
general elections last month. At that
time Mr. Tweedie, who is now a member of the Blnir Government, ran as an
opponent of It, having been in tho Opposition ranks for seven years; and Mr.
Morrissoy, who Ib how the Opposition candidate, ran In the Government
interest, having supported Mr. Blair in
the legislature for two years. The future writer of the history ot New Brunswick local politics will be in danger of
brain fever when he attempts to deal
with the events of the present time.—
Ex.
lt is uot at all improbable, says an exchange, that before the next Presidential election two more Territories, Idaho
and Wyoming, will have been given a
place in the list of States of the American Union. Both Houses of Congress
have reported favorably on the proposal
to admit them, and there appears to be
no reason why they should not be granted the privilege. Idaho's prospects of
admission have been very Blight for
some years past on account of the apparent determination of the Mormons
to take possession of it. But the recent
decision of the Supreme Court upholding
the test oath embodied by the Territory
in its constitution has removed this objection.
The commission appointed to test the
electrical execution apparatus in the
prisons of New York State have reported that each of the apparatuses can be
satisfactorily and successfully used, and
that death by electricity can be accomplished within four seconds. It was
found that about 000 volt was necessary
to kill horses and 400 for smaller ani-
nulls. There seems to be no valid reason why this method of execution Bhould
not take the place of our present some*
what primitive aud barbarous system,
It would at any rate have the effect of
raising the Hiatus of the hangman from
that of a furtive individual of uncertain
antecedents to the position of a scien
title official whose duties would not be
necessarily repulsive.
Even if he should withdraw entirely
from public life Bismarck would Btill be
a busy man. The London correspon
dent of the Birmingham Age says that
besides being a distiller, a farmer and a
paper manufacturer, he has now added
to hia occupations that of brick maker,
having lately successfully established a
large brickyard by which he hopes to
make much money. The clay in the
neighborhood of Launberg, where it is
situated, is said to be of the finest qual
ity, and as no expense has been spared
in furnishing every requisite—including
a railroad—for the successful working of
the industry, there seems every probability of the aged chancellor realizing in
time the dream of his life—a fortuno nnd
an hereditary dukedom.
A Scotch clergyman in a recent lecture
aaid the great peculiarity of the old
Scottish elder or deacon was his power
of expounding Scripture; he wub never
at a Iobs about the meaning of any passage. Ab an illustration of this, he
said: An elder was reading and commenting upon the thirty-fourth Psalm,
and the book being printed in the old
style, when he came to verae thirteen he
saw: "Keep thy tohgue fronuevil, and
thy lips from speaking guifl^l The lasl

lenee that lii-ioiy does not disclose the
imbc of auy great nat.ou, which has acquired enduring greatness, and in which
there is but one language spoken. In
Spain there are two languages tolerated,
the Spanish and the Basque. In Sweden
there are four languages, the Swedish,
the German, the Finnic, and the Latin.
In Switzerland there are four languages,
French, German. Italian and Romanism.
In France, the French, Italian, Breton
and Basque; and. in the Netherlands,
Flemish, Dutch and French. We have
in the Channel Islands the French language, and in the Island of Man the Man
language, while the German is the dominant tongue in Austria. She tolerates a vast number of languages other
than the dominant one—for instance,
the Hungarian, the Bohemian, the
Czech, and others. Let us take Germany : Although the dominant tongue
is German there are many dialects of
the old Sclavonic, the Polish, and other
languages. Russia permits according to
law about 100 language.—among others,
the Finnish, the Caucasian and the
Sclavonic.
Mr. Gigault followed and Mr. Curran
came next, speaking in French. After
receaa Mr. Robilliard made a humorous
speech and was eloquently followed by
Mr. Dawson. Sir Hector Langevin had
his French blood aroused and attacked
in severe terms the resolution of the
member for North Siincoe and his remarks. He contended that French
blood was just as good as English blood;
that the French were just aB loyal to the
Crown as the English are, ahd that in
spite of all attempts made to deprive
the French of their language It would
prevail. Mr. Lavergne then took the
floor and spoke for about fifteen minutes. He was followed by Hon. Mr.
Mills who made an able and learned
speech and quoted history from tbe
commencement to the finish to prove
that more than one language in a country aa official languages, could not and
never have proved detrimental.

The French In Ontario. Mr. Kykert Kx-
plalni the Timber Limit Deal, fioul-
ton'n Amendment to the Railway Aet.
(From Our Own Correnjioudeut.)
Ottawa, Feb. 20.—The Ottawa Jbarnaf,
editorially, Bays: "Apart from the decision of Parliament on Mr. McCarthy's
bill to abolish the official use of French
in the Northwest, the debate has served
a useful purpose regarding Ontario. It
has exposed so strongly the tendencies
of the Liberal leaders to sacrifice everything to the Quebec vote thut the people of Ontario may well ask themselves
if they are safe in continuing to trust
themselves to the Mowat Government,
which Ib so closely allied'with the Dominion Liberals. In this province there
were by the census of 1680,102,000 French
Canadians, aud now, by the claimB of
Quebec statisticians, nearly twice that
number. It is claimed that in this province a tenth of our population is of
French origin not the offspring resulting
from the union of adventurous voyageurs
with savage tribes, but a race as distinctively French as though they had been
born in the valley of the Seine."
MB. RYKERT EXPLAINS.
In the House on Thursday lust Mr.
Rykert made a personal explanation.
He aaid: In the Globe of laBt Saturday
there appeared a large number of letters
purporting to be written by myself in
regard to a timber limit in the Northwest Territories. Tho charge is made
that I, as a member of this House, have
beeu guilty of a breach of the independence of Parliament Act, and that I have
used my position as a member of Parliament for my own private gain. I care
not what the press Bays against me. On
behalf of Mr. Adams I waB applied to to
get a timber limit in tho Northwest. Mr.
Adams, knowing that he hnd a perfect
right to apply for a timber limit, wrote
to me on December 15th, 1882, asking
mo to procure for him a limit in the
Northwest Territories, When the application was sent to me, thero was uo location defined.
Hon. Mr. Bowell said: Before this
queation is closed, I desire to say one or
two words. I find the letter of Jan.
20th couched in language of this ' kind.
I think it must be a misprint, or that
the hon. gentleman (Mr. Rykert) was
singularly unfortunate in selecting language to convey his ideas of what no was
doing in Ottawa. I find in the letter
the following language: "I have Bowell
working for me, ana if we succeed in
beating the railway (C. P. R.) will have
to pay the amount we agreed to pay."
Again, on Feb. 12th he wrote: "John
A.'s son from Winnipeg is here, und I
intend to employ him to go for his
father. I think if you had young Tupper here nnd paid him pretty well he
could help us materially." On 5th
March, 1883, he wrote: "Ihave brought
Macdonald and Tupper from Winnipeg,
and hope they will be able to induce
their fathers to act properly in the matter." On March 8th he wrote: "I find
difficulties surrounding us In every way
in reference to the limit and I find that
the Canadian Pacific Railway have certain ministers working for them. I am
afraid it will cost us each six or seven
thousand dollars to get this made all
right. I have five or six at work for mo,
and have agreed to pay them well If they
succeed." Mr. Bowell, commenting,
said: In regard to this correspondence
I have simply to say that I cannot reconcile the language in the subsequent
letters whtch I have read with the explanation which the hon, gentleman has
made. If the statement in these letters
mean anything they mean thut the
Canadian Pacific Railway had six members of the Government woiking for
them and that the balance of the members were working for him. and that if
they succeeded in obtaining what he
wanted, they were to be well paid.
TIIOB*  TWO   LANOUAOKB.
The dual language question was then
resumed, Mr. Mulock being the flrst
speaker, he said: Professor Freeman
stated most distinctly and positively
that for all political purposes unity of
language was not necessary. As a rule
every nation of any note has, at Its
earlier or later periods, been composed
/pflVl_^,"fancnTW^Cr chai

A. D. 18 , then the provisions of the
next preceding sub-section shall not

received, after the said day, any aid in
public lands or in public money.
Work is progressing slowly on the re
fiairB toH.M.S Amphion and it is not
ikely they will be completed before the
first of May. A small atrike occurred
among the men n few dayB ago on ac<
count of an allowance being made to

of going back and forth every morning
and evening. The men boarding at
Esquimalt wanted the benefit of the
allowance but the demand was not acceded to.—Timet.

THE  INNER  LIFE
We know there Is a life within the life
Of each who, tolling, treads the conquered
way;
Ever a fiercer strife behind the strife
That eaoh is seen to wage from day to day.
We find ourselves contending with a world
la whleh ambition rules and pride holds
away;
We drink and aoofl, like others, are possessed
Wltb seal to grasp the baubles as we may.
So we are Judged to be alike as base
As he who sells for pottage all he Itath-
Who yields not only love and Joy and truth,
But yields for thla his sours Immortal worth.
Be thou serene before this heartless judge,
Brave heart tbat hath wltb unseen valoi
fought;
Strive not to bold against the world a grudge,
And sell tbe sunshine of thy life for naught
The world ean never know theo as thou art,
Muoh less wltb truth oan judge thee as It
ought;
But If tbouhast with courage done thy part,
For thee there's nothing further to he lougbt.
"TIb well for us to toll and strive to win
All that our health Bnd our comfort require;
But let tho angel atill within us rolgn,
That he may aid the world to something
higher.
Then let the Inner life be full and free-
Let mind rule with the scepter of its might;
Let heart and soul with aspiration turn
Toward all that's great ln nature, Rrand in
thought.
Then be tbo world ln judgment true or false,
Tho heart secure ln consciousness of worth
Can And within Its battlements of truth
The greatest pleasure possible to earth,
—Robert Livingstone, ln Phrenological Journal
THE BETTER WAY.
Uno-tentation, and One Bundred
Dollars for tbe Poor.
"What a strange woman Mrs. Barlow
was!" exclaimed Mrs. Johnson, as she
met Mrs. Gorhart on the Btreet.
-   "Wast    Surely Mra. Barlow ia not
dead?"
"Yea, she died about two houra ago.
I was just going for you; for Adela said
it was her mother's request that you
ahould be there to assist the girls in
their last services. They would not let
me help them."
"I was just going there. I told her
last evening I would oomo around this
morning. I had no idea she would go
so soon. Sbe seemed better yesterday
and Adela was going to sit up with hor
last uight."
"Yes, she did, and the children were
all alone with her when Bhe breathed
her last. Adela said she had barely
time to oall the children up. It was
sudden at last."
"Well, I must hasten, for X Bhall be
needed. Poor woman, her sufferings
are over, but what will the children do
now?" said Mrs. Johnson.
"Their mothor has' made every arrangement for their future. She knew
that it was hor last illness."
Mra. Gerhart passed on; sho was a
very dear friend of the deceased, und
felt the loss of her deeply. She knew
how much Mrs. Harlow had suffered for
long years, and whon the husband and
father was killed in a drunken affray,
some ton years before, sho was the ono
peraon who hud comforted and assisted
the widow and orphans in their desolation. Since then sbe had been a sister
to the lonely woman, and whon by the
death of a distant relative Mrs. Harlow
was placed in a position of independence, aud was surrounded by all the
comforts and luxuries that wealth could
procure, who did not forget Lho "friend
in need," who bad helped lift tho burdens of want and sorrow from lier
.slendor frame, hut cherished her, and

childless widow) wonld como and live
with her children, and keep tho family
circlo unl.iL.ii.n. ghohad passed most
of her Littlo tvifch the slok woman, and
only lofI her tho evoning before, by hor
particular request, so that she might obtain a good night's rest. She deeply regretted hor absence, for she knew it
must be a heart-rending scone for the
children to pass through. She wns met
at the door hy all the children, who
gladly welcomed their mother's friend.
''You are to be my mother now," said
jtttje Annie, "mother said so last
night," and sho hid her face on Mrs.
Gerhftrt'8 shoulder.
''Yea, my little one, I promised your
mother I would stay with you as long as
you needed me."
"That Wili be always," said Adela, a
beautiful girl of sixteen; then came
Elsie of fourteen yoars; after Iter were
tho two boys, then another girl, before
Annie, who came to comfort her mother
in hor lonely widowhood some three

It WW « 8*Qrt responsibility to take
upon oneself, but the mother was n
wise woman, and Bho knew that the
trust would not bo broken. Thoy wont
together to the chamber of death and
wept oyer tbe silent sleeper; then Mia.
Gerhart and Adela performed tho last
sad offices of affection, and the children
gathered flowers to brighten the silent
chamber. The undertaker came to perform the functions of his office, and
KnighJloracame in to offer their services,
but tbeso woro declined
"Let tho coffin be perfectly plain; no
needless expense. It will not tm np exhibition," said Mra. Gerhart. -'Mrs.
itorlow made overy arrangement horsolf, and we shall follow them out to the
leti_n slip disliked display and parade."
t "Why, sho was very wealthy, 1 iwdor-
stood, I supposed you would have ft flno
funeral," he said.
"It was not bor wish, and wo shall do
just as alio desired. She always disliked ostentation," replied Mrs, (tor-
hart, as she closed tho door of tho ohamber, just as Mrs. Johnson and two othor
ladies wore ascending tho stall's.
"Wo havo aomo to assist you; there
must bo a great deal to bo done, Mrs.
Barlow wah Hick so long, and wo oould
holp on the sowing," said Mra, Johnson
au she tried to open the door,
"Thero is no extra sewing to be done;
the family aro not going to put ton
mourning."
"Not to go In mourning for tholr
mother!" exclaimed Bhe, "only think ot
it, Mrs. Brown; and Bhe so rich, tool
What will people tbink!"
"It matters very little what people
think, Mrs. Johnson. Mn, Barlow
never approved of suoh lavish display at
funerals, and Bhe made it a special in
junction to avoid all parade."
' ''When will the funeral be attended,
Mrs. Gerhart?"
''I think somo time to-morrow. I have
not soon tlio rector yet. Eddy haa gon.
totho rectory j but wo Bhall only havi

' ?'I never heard of Buch doings. Wbo

"What will people think! How odd!'
said Mrs. Brown.
■"No ono will ceo the remains but thr

has como; wo will go down, if you
please, ladies," said Mrs. Gerhart.
"I suppose we can go in and look at
the corpse."
"I am sorry to refuse you; bht It oan
not bo. My friend had n porfect horr* ■
of being on exhibition, and I promise*
her no one should look on her dead fact
but her children. Wo will go down
now,"
"How queer! I nm glnd that I am no
responsible for all tho comments foil:
wil) mako," said Mrs. Johnson to Mrs
Brown as they wont down tho stair-,
whore they met Adela coming from the
parlor, where tho rector was waiting.
"Mrs. Gerhart will not let us do any
'thing for you or even go into your
mothor's room," said Mrs. Brown.
"Of course not. She acts in accordance with my dear mother's wishes. I
do not tbink we need any help."
"There is always so much to be done
in oase of death."
"Thank you for your offer. And if
we need assistance we will let you
know," and it was with a sigh of relief
that she saw thom take their doparture.
The next day, aftor dinner, the prayers
were read, and the coffin wns borm
from tbe house; the orphaned children
with Mrs. Gerhart, followed th
hoarse; tho minister and his famUy
with the pall-bearers, followed. Th(
services at the grave were road and
the dust waB returned to its Mothe*
Earth. The children wept freely aa th'
sods rattled on the coffin, for there wer*
no curious criticising eyes to commen
on how had thoy felt. It was a*relief i<
their bursting hearts. Slowly the,\
turned away from the grave and returned to the darkened home. Thi
house seemed desolate; it was a honii
without a mother. But Mrs. Gerhart
quietly a_sumed the duties assigned to
her, and in their sorrow tho children
turned to her for comfort. In the evening the minister and his wife came In to
cheer the bereft family and administer
consolation.
' "I approve of thiB order of funerals; lt
seems far more appropriate than tho
present customs. So much display and
parade aro not consistent with sorrow
for the dead," said tho ri-utoi*
"I did exactly as Mra. Jlni-lcw requested mo to do. Sho has always condemned
the outlay consequent upon the pvoseni
Btylo of funerals, as if the trappings of
display woro the correct expression oi
grief, and one could judgo how heart
stricken tno mourners were uy tho cos
of the obsequies. Then sho said it wa
suoh a burden to so many peoplo wh-
wero financially troubled togo to sue!
an extravagant expense when they los
a relative. I think, too, sho was very
Bonsiblo in her own case. One oan not

I know people will talk; it ia their privilege; but 1 feel that I acted wisely h

hart.
"Certainly you did, and Mrs. Barlov.
showed her wisdom in arranging Ik •
affairs as she did. I am glad sho pro
vided so faithful a guardian for he,
children. Sho told mo of her arrangements and guvo mo a check for ono bun
ilred dollars to bestow upon the poor ir

Mrs. Johnson and Mrs. Brown made ;

THEY  FOUND  "DADDY."
Four Little Tots Tako n Long Journey In
Search ot Their Father.
The following touching scono is described concerning four littlo German-
American children who were traveling
alono from ono ot tho Eastern States of
America to tho new State of Washington, on tbe Pacifio coast Owing to
some blunder they were put off at
Walla Walla, more tban a hundred
miles from tho place they wero going
to, and hore tbo kind-hearted station
agent found the eldest girl, only twelve,
crying bitterly, and the othera trying to
comfort her. One of them, with arms
twined about her slater's neck, was saying:
"Father will soon oome, Bister. He
don't know we are hero yet, but he will
soon come, X know he will."
"But we are so hungry," the elder replied.
"But," satd the sweet angel, patting
her on the back, "never mind that, sister. It won't be long till father will
eome, and we will have plenty to eat"
When the agent heard this, and saw
thiB evidence of sweet affection, he
asked them; "And are you so hungry,
children?"
''Yes, sir; we are starving."-!
"What! starving children in Walla
Walla! This can not be," he mused.
And the telephone soon told some one:
''A meal for four starving children,
quick!"
As quick as the speediest team at the
station oould bring them over to the
city, they were here, and soon sat before the best there was ln the hnd.
And this Is their simple story; The
father some time before had come West
to live near Waltsburg, leaving tbe
mother nnd children to follow as soon
•s he was ready to receive thota. But
In the meantime the mother sickened
and suddenly died. Kind friends forwarded the children to the sorrowing
father, but through some mistake they
stopped off at Walla Walls, and although the fathor anxiously awaited
them at Waitsburg, they remained
there from Thursday until Saturday
night without a scrap to eat, sloeplngas
best they oould on benoh end floor,
their youth and native modosty preventing them from making their condition known, until the elder, worn out
with caring for the little ones, and
weary with watching for the loving
face that never oame, and famished
from hunger, broke completely down;
and thus their sad oondition became
known.
But ready hands and willing hearts
were soon found, as ls always the oase
when the weak and tender are in distress. And when the evening was oome,
and the noisy train, with Its glare of
light and Interior splendor, left the station, the glad, thankful, yet wondering
children sat amid the soft cushions and
resplendent luxury of the palace oar,
with a big basket near them containing
more of good things than they ever before possessed, and were bomo swiftly
away northward on their journey, as tbe
littlest tot otall said, "to And daddy."
Xt does beat all, as the good country
peoplo say, how polite some peoplo are,
A Boston lady tells of a gentleman, so
called, who asked permission to smoke
a cigar in her presenco. She does not at
all dislike the odor of a good cigar, and
readily granted permission. But no, on
socond thought, he would not smoke; It
was not polite to smoke in the presence
of a lady, and he would nut be so rude.
Ho didn't smoke; but within five
minutes after tho passage of his good
'■osolvo ho took out a huge plug of navy
lohocco and refreshed himself with a
i|iiare Inch of the weed, without so
much as "by your leave" As 1 re-
iiurked onoe boforo, all kinds of people
ire required to make up the Inhabitants
of a world.

A Pretty Voir Lunch for Five
Gootl—Walking Oafoa.
Acting on the facts given him, a Chicago News reporter selected Detective
Morgan Thomas, of the Harrison street
station, anil at eleven o'olock started
out to explore this paradise of itinerant oooks and restaurants on wheels.
At the hour when the West and North
sides were silent in sleep the levee wu
a lively scene. The usual throng of
painted women, white and black, alleged
sporting men, with barber-pole pants,
bill-poster shirt-fronts, and dance-house
neckties, were to be seen.
"There comes.one of the cafes," said
Thomas.
Around the corner of Polk street 'and
Fourth avenue appeared a swarthy little man. He carried a small folding
table beneath one arm, and ln the otber
band he held what looked like a hotel
consomme boiler. It was made of cop-
por and it shono like a full moon. He
■fled in a sing-song voice: "Huh and
lienors, gut wurst"
"This class Is the most common," said
ho detectivo. "See, he sells huh, bread
uid Frankfort sausage- red-hot"
"Vill do shcntlemens haf some red-
hots und brod?" asked tho cook, as he
•-laced bis copper kettle on the curb. In
. twinkling the table waB set up. His
• ares were good. Hot, home-made
Mush, with good bread and butter, made
itxcolleiit sandwiches for a hungry
rounder or policeman. The red-hots
wore generally outln two longitudinally
:tnd smothered ln mustard. The merchant willingly told how he made his
living.  '
"You see, fronts, I Bleep* me In de
day-time, 'cause de beeblers what vants
mine atook dey be sloepin, too. Mine
woman, she cooks de hash efery afternoon und I cook de red-hots vile I
■arrios dem. Lots of fellows make
money mit dis business. See, In dls
■art I keeps de hash, and here are de
-'. 'd-hots. Under is de lamp what keeps
Io blace hot. In dla box I carries the
brod und mustard. I shust valk me
■ound, und de peoples what Is hungry
■toy buys. Poy be beoples vhat only
■ work aroun' nights. Some be tieves,
somo gamblers, some policemen und
oAder ting. Oh, yes, I make more money
als vorkin' ln a restaurant."
"He is only a sample," said the detective, u the gay fellow picked up his
paraphernalia and departed shouting
his weird Bing-song ory.
The waffle man wu also encountered,
but merchants of his kind are too
numerous in tbe daytime to merit much
comment A little farther on the popcorn man held forth bis little court,
gasoline torch and supply of buttered
snowflakea done up In pretty paper bags.
During the warm autumn evenings evory
good nook shelters a nocturnal sweet-
corn cook. He gives you h big, fresh-
hollea earoi corn wub plenty of buttor,
such u lt ls, and seasoning for a nickel.
It waa not until the negro quarters
were reaohed that the night cook was
seen in all his glory, with his little
movable stall, where he displays appetizing roasted tidbits of chicken, opossum, corn and sweet potatoes. Who
could resist stopping to soe the white-
■lothed fellows who assume grttosque
shapes flitting about their ovens In tho
darkness, now and then crying: "Como
on, brethren, an1 partake ob de feast.
Choice outs beah. All yoh wants for
two bits."
A great many well-dressed white men
stopped to get a lunch of chicken or sweet
potatoeB. These cooks are patronized
all night long. Not a sign of their
hooths Ib left by daylight, for as dawn
appears they pack up and go home.
''Thoae fellows just making a meal of
chicken legs, toast and sweet-potato
sandwioheB are actors," said the officer.
'These lunches save tbem time and
money. On their way to tbelr rooms
thoy take a bite and satisfy the Inner
man with choice dainties at a small
cost."
Leaving the darker portions of the
levee, and upon reaching State street,
the Itinerant night-cook issupplantod
by the all-night restaurant Theae
itinerant merchants do not like the
tightest streets, because thoir customers are found only ln the darker streets.
"Speaking about variety actors as
ham-fat song-and-dance artists,'" said
a theatrical manager, "X think the man
who first called them by that name must
have seen tbem about midnight on tho
lovee, getting away with a plate of eggs
and ham just prepared by one of theso
nlgbt-cooks."
These cooks know every tough and
bad character In the locality, and very
often supply such men with tho only
meals the latter get when In biding
from the polico, so tbey are very often
used to advantage by the police aa stool-
pigeons. They are a necessity in this
locality, and if they were prohibited
from doing buslneu every rounder
would strike.,
POOR  HOTEL-KEEPING,
the Moblo Work Dono bjr » Reformer In
ft Coon-Sktn Cap.
One night a year ago, writes a Now
York Sun correspondent, thore were halt
a doxen of us to go up to the vlllago hotel In the rickety old bus, and among
the crowd was a solemn-looking old
ibap, dressed in very plain goods and
wearing a coon-skin cap. It was the
typical village hotel landlord ln tho
bar-room, a very fresh young man behind the register, mighty little for supper, and that poorly cooked, and thero
wu more or less growling. Tho man
with tho coon-sklu oap was treated very
brusquely by tho clerk, and tbo frowsy-
headed waiter girl didn't seem to care
whether he had any thing to eat or not
He didn't say much, but lt wu evident
that he was mad.
After supper the landlord and "Coon*
skin" had a private confab. Whon it was
ended tbe old man came down-stairs,
opened the front door* and then turnod
to tho olerk, and said:
"Yougltl"
"What do you mean?"
"I have rented tbls hotel.   Skip!"
The olerk put on his coat and bat and
walked out. Then "Coon-skin" sent
word to the cook and waiter girl to be
out In half an hour, for the hoatlor to
be gone by midnight, and for the bar-'
keeper to vacate by noon the next day.
Ho kindly allowed us to stop over night,
but we had to get our breakfast at a
bakery. By noon tbo doora of the hotol
were nailed up, signs of "olosed" posted,
and u we footed lt down to the. depot
the solemn old man thawod out sufficiently to observe:
"I'm after sevon more of'om along this
line of railroad, and If I oan shut 'em up
the public will be tn my debt I have
figured It out to my entire satisfaction,
tad I truly believe that three-fifths of
the crime ln this oountry is incited by
poor hotel-keeping."   	
A Qunttlmi of Honor.
A judge had overruled a motion of
Counselor Garvey, one of the beat
known lawyers of the St. Louis bnr
The counselor Is usually most respect
ful to tho court, but ho lost his tempo
this time and declared tn his brout
though rich and oultured Irish brogue
"Your Honor, I hone for your Honor',
honor that It will never bo nolai-c
abroad to your Honor's hurt that thit
honorable court ever mado a ruling so
dishonorable to Its own honor."

Thursday evening with several passengers, including the Mediums party from

had to come out almost immediately on
account of tho floating blocks. It has
been ascertained that the fire at Bella
Bella was the work of an Incendiary,
who had previously stolen a lot of furs
from the store; he had not been caught
when the Maude left.
Perhaps the most unique strike ever
entered into is one now on at Seattle.
The strike, which includes ten members of the chain-gang, was precipitated
by the officers refusing to allow the
chain brigade to beg money for tobacco
from passers by on the street, wherever
they happened to be at work. The men
made nuisances of themselves despite
the endoavors of tho officers to stop the
practice, and defied their authority.
The strikers have been nut on a bread
and water diet, and will probably booh
conclude it is better to obey orders.

OTTAWA   NEWS.
Turin Forger and Leaven In Hot Haste
fur   Illicit) Ham's Domains.
YeBterday morning T. W. Roney, who
has made himself notorious by Ids
attacks on the Salvation Army, of whicli
he was formerly a member, and who for
creating a disturbance at one of tho
meetings served a term of three mouths
iu the Provincial gaol, appeared before
the police magistrate charged with
drunkenness aud vagrancy. Roney
pleaded not guilty to both charges, bnt
liis general character was proved to be
so bad that Mr. Atkinson entered a sentence of six mouths' imprisonment and
then gave him four hours to leave the
city or go to gaol for the term specified.
He decided to leave but first all called
nt the post office to get his letters and
give instructions as to where all mail
matter should in future be directed.
At the post office he received a letter
addressed to J. Rooney, who, he Bald,
waa his brother. The letter was intended for Mr. J. Rooney, the deputy
postmaster at Vancouver, and it contained a certificate of a share in the
New Westminster Building Society.
Roney had no money and when he
opened the letter his fertile brain at
once conceived the idea of raising funds
on this certificate. Passing over to
Messrs W. J. Walker & Co'b oflice he
asked for an advance of $7 on the ticket,
saying lie was going to Vancouver, had
no money and waa unable, through an
accident, to walk. Mr. Walker never
advances money ou a certificate, but he
took compassion on tins starved-look ing
creature and gave him the amount asked, and for which Roney in return gave
an I.O.U., forging the Vancouver Roo-
ney's name.Before the rascal had wvitten
the paper Mr. Walker asked him—"Are
yon J, Rooney," and he replied "Yob."
The real owner of the share had never
been in the office, and Mr. Walker is
uot acquainted with him, so that it is
no wonder he was imposed on. The mo-
moment Roney got the money he left
the office, hurried to the swamp, made
a solemn farewell to his friends, and was
safe on the Brownsville side of tlie river
at 12:30 o'clock.
Mr. Walker discovered that Roney
waa au impostor in less than 10 minuteB
after he had left the office. The police
were immediately communicated with
uud an information laid, but as it was
supposed the forger had (^one to Vancouver some time was lost in getting ou
his trail! It was not until this morning
that it was dsscovered Roney had fled to
the States, aud then it waB too late to
catoh him this side of the bouudary.
What further steps will be taken in the
niatter has not yet transpired, but iu
any case the city ia well rid of Roney's
presence.
CANNIFF'S SAFETY COUPLER.
Great Excitement In tlie Senile Senate
Cauueil by the Festive Reporter Trying
tu <let a Finger ln The Divorce Fie.
{From our Own Correspondent.)
Ottawa, March L—Anintorestingand
amusing scene occurred in the star room
of the Senato this morning. The divorce
case of Clapp vs. Clapp was being heard.
Reporters are excluded from tho proceedings, but a number of the press gal
lery managed to get in aud remained
in the room for nearly an hour, then the
cry wub raised, "Thero are reporters
present." Chairman Dickey at once
ordered their removal, and ouo
of our boys, rising, addressed the chairman and senatorB present, claiming a
right to be present. Senator Dickey
said the reporters had no right to be
present, as the proceeding were being {conducted "a la Ster' Chamber"
doctrine of old. While the discussion
waa going ou, Senator Robltaille entered, and, being weak, fell on his face on
the floor. Then commenced tho excitement, nud the reporters were removed,
VICTORIA NOTES.
A Wonderful Invention, Bound lu Revolutionize tho ■'resent Syatem uf Car
CuupHug.
The test made of Canniff's safety car
coupler iu the Canadian Pacific Railway
Co.'s yards at Vancouver laat Tuesday,
demonstrated the fact that this invention is the best aud most convenient that
haa yet been brought iuto use. As the
inventor is a citizen of Westminster his
contrivance is worthy of more than passing notice, and a description of the Invention will be read with more than
ordiuary interest by our readers.   -
The coupler is worked from either tlie
top of the car or from the ground outside the car, and in cither case without
the slightest chance of danger to the
person doing the coupling. The pin is
provided with a lug on the back part,
half an inch wide and concave at the
bottom. The drawhead Ib cut out back
of the pin holo to allow the pin with the
lug to work up and down, and this lug
Eressiug down on the back of the link
rings tlie front end up to any position
that it can be raised by hand. Two
guide plates are riveted on each side of
the drawhead with heavy shoulder
rivets; the aboulder rivets keep the
guide plates an inch out fpom tho side of
the draw-head. These guide plates are
provided with two slots oach, one running straight up abovo the top of the
drawhead tlie length of the pin to allow
the pin to raise; the other runs below
tlie drawhead to allow tho pin to drop.
There is a hole through the top of
the pin, and a round rod passes through
the upper slot of the two guide plates
and through the hole in the top of the
pin; then a short rod the same length
as the pin, goes from tho pin rod outside to the guide plates and connects by
bolt to tho second extension bnr aud
connects to the main shaft, which pusses
under the car aud furnishes the leverage
to work the coupling.
The two connecting bars pass through
the lower slot iu the guide plate, and
guido the motion of the levers, ami thus
the lever operates direct ou the pin, and
the pin ou tho link bringing the whole
coupling under the complete control of
the operator, aud the latter is always iu
sight of the engine driver. This coupler hus many advantages. It is not
complicated or dillicult to work; it can
bo placed on any drawhead thnt couples
with pin and link; it Ib cheap to manufacture, and u car can be equipiwd with
it for about $7; it is durable ana reliable
aud can bo coupled to auy ordinary car
that is not provided with tho patent.
The pin aud link can bo handled quicker
than It is possiblo to handle them by
hand, and if the cars come together it is
impossible to miss the coupling if the
operator is at his post. The time it will
save to a railway company in shunting
operations would easily pay all tho coat
of the improvement, to say nothing of
the thousands of serious and fatal accidents it will prevent in a few years, and
surely the lives of railway employes
should be first taken into consideration.
Iu view of the importance of this invention, nnd the eminent successful test
it underwent in the C. P. R. yards at
Vuncouver this week, there is now no
excuse for railways retaining the old and
dangerous system of car coupling, and
the government should make it compulsory in the railway act that this or some
like invention should bo used by ull
companys.

Victoria, Feb. 28.—The, weather for

The gape of astonishment which

The horses have got used to it, and the
flightiest of them now sorns to take his

is considered here a wonderful exhibition of equine-imity.

reference to sense or logic.
Hon. Mr. Beaven said he had only
brought up this subject on account of a
letter published in the Colonist. Personally he knew nothing about the
affair, and drew his inferences solely
from the aforementioned letter. He
had been led to understand that the
Attorney-General had changed ground
on this subject since yesterday.
Hon. Mr. Davie: "Nothing of tlie

Hon. Mr. Vernon aaid he thought it u
very extraordinary thing to expect the

considered thia position a very extraordinary one for tne honorable members
of the Opposition to take. The resolution was adopted.

Allert Hay Indiana  Ill-Die a Constable
In the Execution of Hia Duty.
Provincial Officer Redgravo, who ar*
rived from Alert Bay on Tueaday, haa
reported to the authorities the circumstances of un uttnek mnde upon him by
tlie Indians of that place while in the
execution of his duty ns police officer,
It appears from the officer's statement
that on the 10th inst. an Indian came to
the jail at Alert Bay and naked Mr. Red
grave to go to the rancherie nud arrest
an Indian there for fighting. The officer went to the rancherie und, after
hearing the facts of the case, attempted
to arrest two Indians for being drunk
and fighting. One got nway, and whilo
placing the hnudcufls on tlie other
crowd of Indians closed in on the oflicer,
took away his club nnd rescued tbu
prisoner. Redgrave theu attempted to
arrest the native who had furnished the
others with the liquor, but this arrest
wub also prevented by the prisoner's
friends, who hud assembled to the number of about 200. The officer thon weut
to the Indian Agent's residence, uud
got him to go to the Indian village nnd
explain to tlie Indians that they would
be seriously punished if thev resisted
the law or in nny way interfered with
the officer in the execution of his duty.
Redgrave theu attempted to arrest the
third person again, but again the other
Indiana closed arouud and roughly
jostled the officer, tearing his clothes
and otherwise ill-using him. Hu waa
seized from behind by the throat, while
others held his legs und anus nnd thus
allowed the prisoner to get away. The
Indian ngent iu vain threatened nnd advised the natives, but tbey pnid no attention to hia words, and forming a
guard around the rescued prisoner, jeered nnd defied the agent ami the oflicer.
Ono of the ringleaders, whose name
Oflicer Redgrave has taken, told tlie
officer thnt thev had been advised to resist him, uud tliat if they got in any
trouble thereby, n Victoria lawyer would
aoon get them clear. Finding thut nothing more could be done without ussis-
tunce, Mr. Redgravo came to Victoria
aud laid the facts of the case beforo the
authorities here upou Iub arrival.—Colonist. ___B_^______v__.
