THE SIBERIAN   FRONTIER.
The alarm said to be manifested in
Russia with regard to the insecurity of
the Siberian frontier on account of the
robable construction of a railway

of Corea. The Government of China
does not, however, Beem disposed to expedite the construction of tho Hankow-
Peking or the Peking-Kirin Railway.

place.        .
An Exciting Fire.
New York, March 10.—A fire broke
out early this morning in a crowded
tenement house on Lumber Street,
which effected the loss of perhaps only
12,000, but during its continuance put
the occupants of the building in a terrible peril. All were rescued in safety
after many narrow escapes as the flames
surrounded the flro escapes and the
halls were filled with smoke.  The Inci
dent of the fire was a father throwing

who caught it flying. Several persons
were rescued by being lowered with
ropes.       _____	
Railway Accident.

. The Father Repudiates.
London, March 10.—David Stephenson, the father of. Mrs. Burchell, whose
husband it is alleged murdered Frederick Benwell, was interviewed to**day
by a United press reporter. He repudiates the statement that hiB daughter is
in any way accessory to the murder, and
denies her marriage to Burchell was irregular. He says he has now in hiB
possession a copy of the marriage certificate, and he believes his daughter has
the original. He received a letter from
his daughter three days after the murder, which he considers absolute proof
of her innocence of any connection with
the crime. Stephenson will sail on the
steamer Germanic on Wednesday en
route to Princeton, Out., for purposes of
looking after hiB daughter's interests.
Successful at Last.
Willcox, Ariz., March 8.—The four
murderers of Geo. Herbert, the freighter,
on Sunday last were overtaken yeBterday
ou Salt River, about 30 miles north of
Globe, by the pursuing party, and ub
was expected a fight followed, resulting
in the killing of two of the renegades
and the capture of the remaining tliree,
one of whom was wounded. The young
officer in command of the detachment
was Lieutenant James W. Watson, of
the Tenth Cavalry,who has not yet seen
ten years of service. He is recognized
as a most valuable Indian trailer, and
for this purpose haB the permanent command of the Indian scouts at San Carlos.
The entire command travelled nearly
300 miles of the roughest country in
Arizona in the pursuit, and during
the skirmish escaped without a
scratch. The killed were buried where
they fell, and the three prisoners were
brought to Globo to-day, where they will
be held in confinement until to-morrow,
when they will be taken to Sau Carlos.
This successful termination of the military chase in pursuit of the renegrado
Indians is the first one to record for
many years, and congratulations are
modestly received by Lieutenants Watson and Clarke. The murder having
occurred In Graham county, tlie prison-
era will be taken charge of by the civil
authorities of that county,, and justice
will be meted out to them by a jury.
The Benwell Murder.
Woodstock,Ont., March 8.—Now and
sensational developments are cropping
up in connection with the Benwell
tragedy, and. the question now
whether there has not been at least two
victims. Some two or three years ago a
young Englishman, Neville H. Picket-
hall, came here, and about a year ago
purchased a farm Bix miles south. Four
months ago he married the daughter of
his minister. On February 10th laBt
Pickethall raised $1,000 on a mortgage
ou his farm and left here, saying to his
wife: "I am going to double this money
before I come back." He was seen at
Niagara FallB that night and said he
was going to New York to see his Bister.
The testimony in the Burchell examination showed that he reached New York
and there met Burcbill. Since then no
trace of him has been found nnd no
word received from him. Hia disappearance caused a stir at the time, and
the police sent descriptions of him all
ovei the country. The theory now is
that he was enticed to New York by
Burchell, with the expectation of making a large sum of money, and that he
was put out of the way for tbe money
he carried with him. A search for Bur-
chell'B baggage will be made for anything
that might give a clue to Pickethall _
fate. 	
Stanley's Return.
London, March 8.—Henry M. Stanley
will not leave Cairo till the beginning of
April, partly because he dreads a sudden
change of climate and partly because he
has made up his mind to finish his book
before be becomes entangled in tbe dissipations of the London season. The
book issofar advanced that the publishers hope it may be ready for publication
on tho day of Stanley's arrival in England. He will not come direct to Loudon. He will spend a fortnight at Nice
and then proceed to Brussels to pay his
respects to the King of the Belgians,
At Brussels he will be met by his four
officers, Parke, Nelson, Stair and Jeph-
son, ail of whom have become devotedly
attached to their chief and ready to
follow him whenever he calls upon them
in any fresh enterprise. Dr. Parke's colleagues admit that had it not been for
the doctor, not one member of the expedition would have come out alive. Mr.
Stanley's first public appearance in London will be at the Albert Hall, under the
auspices of the Royal Geographical Society. While a special medal will be
struck for Stanley, the royal medal of
the society will be awarded to Emin
Pasha. '

OTTAWA JOTTINGS.
An Amendment to lie Offered to the
Dominion Franchise Act.—The Mortality Returns for January.—What Rideau Hall Conts.—Personal Gonglp.
,   [From Oar Own Corresponilont.l
Ottawa, March 8.
PARLIAMENTARY NOTES.
In reply to Mr. Blako, Sir John stated
that negotiations were still going on between the Imperial and Dominion Governments with reference to the defences
of British Columbia.
In reply to a question asked by the
Hon. Peter Mitchell, Sir John Macdonald said thnt in the matter of securing a settlement of the Behring See
difficulty everything was looking ns well
as Canadians could wish. He expressed
the view that it would bo a mistake to
state from day to day the nature of the
progress mado.
A deputation uf photographers consisting of Messrs. Poole, of St. Catherines, E. Stanton, of Toronto, and G,
Kuowlton. of Montreal, have waited upon the minister' of customs with reference to the duties on dry plates and
albumen paper. The duty on dry plates
is now nearly ninety per cent., and they
thought a specific duty of thirty percent
would be quite sufficient. Albumen
paper pays thirty por cent., nnd they
asked that it should* In* placed at fifteen
Scr cent., the same ns the Amoricun
uty.
Mr. McCarthy's next move iu the dual
language question depends on events
but un opportunity for throwing further
light on the question at issue may occur
shortly, if tho Government brings down
its promised Northwest measure. In
the speech from the throne nmong tlie
measures promised was one to make
"certain amendments to the Northwest
Territories act to fuclllute the administration of affairs In that region."
Re the decision of the House on Mr.
McCarthy's bill "tbe dual language iu
the Northwest." the Ottawa Journal of
last Saturday editorial says: "The large
majority by which Sir John Thompson's
amendment to the Dual Language Bill
waB carried last night will cause a feeling
of disappointment throughout Ontario.
The amendment was so unsatisfactory
that many hoped it would, even If carried, occasion a really formidable protest
in the House. In brief, the amendment
commits the Dominion parliament to
the support of the official use of French
wherever it has been used in Canada
since confederation.1
Mr. Davies has given notice of a bill
to amend the Dominion Franchise Act.
Tho object of tlie bill Ib to enable the
Revising Oflicer at the hearing of uny
objection to a voter's name on the
ground that he haB no qualification in
the particular polling district whore his
name appears, to hear evidence that the
voter is qualified in another polling district of the district then being revised,
and if sufficient to put him on the pro-
fier list. Mr. Davies says that owing to
he absence of such a provision nearly
200 voters were Btruck oft' the lists in
Oharlottetown last summer. No one
contended that they were not legally
qualified voters, but being on the wrong
list they were struck off by the Revising
Officer, who held that he had no power
to hear any evidence of their qualification in any othor polling district than
the one where their names appeared on
the list.
REPORTS, PETITIONS, ETC.
The total amount to the credit of depositors in the Post-Office Savings Baud
on the 3lBt January last was $23,145,425.
According to the report of the chiof
engineor of government railways tho distance from Halifax to Montreal via tho
0. P. R. Short Line is 755 miles; via tho
Intercolonial and Grand Trunk 848
miles; via the Grand Trunk's Maine
route 850 miles and by way of the Temis-
couata road and St. John 814 miles.
A number of petitions from Oshawa,
Belleville, Brighton, Port Hope, Picton
and other places, and signed by several
hundred vessel owners and ot tiers interested in navigation have been presented.
They claimed that the merchant marine
of the inland waters of Canada, engaged
in the carrying of bituminous coal, are
seriously prejudiced in their competition
for such trade, by the tolls imposed on
cargoes passing through the Welland
canal, and that by reason of such tolls
the trade was being diverted into other
channels. They, therefore, asked for
the entire abolition, or a liberal reduction, of the tolls.
The Rideau Hall expenditure was
discussed again at the Public Accounts
committee. Mr. Ewart, assistant to the
chief architect, was examined and said
he certified to the correctness of the accounts. He admitted there was no system of debit and credit accounts kept
in connection with the hall. He submitted a statement from the public works
department showing the annual expenditure on Rideau Hall since confederation.
It was $4,000 in 1808; $8,917 in '60 $4,478
in '70; $3,760 in '71; $4,878in '72; $62,317

Spuing, by common consent, is the
time fqr a general clean up nud renovating process. Nature sets the example,
and, with alternate dashing shower and
brisk drying breeze, purges the face of
the earth from the unsightly and unsavory accumulations of the winter. The
patent medicine men come iu ns a good
second, wilh tlieir uunamable nostrums
to clean out tho torpid system (and often
Us unfortunate owner) of the happy individual who has survived the "la
grippe," the bud ventilation, and tbe toboggan or sleigh (slay) rides of the zero
season. Neither lust nor least, comes
the inlvltuble houso cionning, the very
thought of which makes strong men
tremble, but brings an exutlantand
triumphant light to the housewife _ eye—
for this is woman's sphere par excellence,
ThiB is where the downtrodden, unenfranchised "better half" of humanity
gets terribly even on the grudging, selfish voting animal. He is ordered aloft
to wreBtle profanely with stove pipeB;
he must get down on all fours and un-
rivet the dusty carpet from the floor, until he could devoutly wish for "single
tax" on the brain in exchange for the
score of carpet-tacks lacerating hia poor
shins; and, sb if all thiB were not revenge
enough, the unfortunate victim must
subsist on cold lunches while the equinoctial trouble lasts. But tlio scene is
too harrowing, aud the curtain must bc
drawn upon house-cleaning, which, we
believe, haa other uses besides that of
retribution.' As an institution, ostensibly sanitary, it "has come to stay," at
any rate. Last, not iu importance, but
for tho reason tliat it is so seldom attempted or carried out with auy degree
of thoroughness, we would mention
municipal or civic house-cleaning.
House-clean ing is hardly a broad enough
term for the proceBB required at intervals—and no time Ib more appropriate
than the spring-time—to put a city in
that sanitary condition which iB the only
safe-guard against those insiduouB and
deadly evils that are superinduced by a
contrary condition. Westminster has
the advantage of being naturally a most
salubrious place, but of late years there
have not been wanting warnings that we
can no longer afford to relax thoso sanitary precautions which are fouud necessary in all large and growing centres of
population. Au excellent sanitary bylaw, we understand, is being prepared, by
our city fathers, and we trust, In the interests of the public health, that it may
soon take its place among the civic statutes, and be enforced with nil the scope
and impartiality of Nature, the vim nnd
grip of the patent medicine, and the
zeal, persistency and remoraelesBneBB of
the domestic Nemesis.
creased by no fewer than nine hundred
and eighty-five, seemed like tbe first
emotion of a criminal who had heard
that penal servitude for life had beeu
substituted for immediate death.
From time to time we bave kept our
readers thoroughly au fait on tbe relative positions of parties in the British
Parliament, and the two elections decided during the past week call for comment. Tbe election in the Nortb St.
Pancras Division of London, resulted in
the return of Mr. T. H. Bolton, the
Gladstonian, by a vote of 2,666 to 2,649
for Mr. Graham, the Unionist candidate. At the last election Mr, Cochrane
Baillie, Conservative, was returned by a
majority of 261 over Mr. Bolton, who
was then, sb uow, the Gladstonian candidate. Here, then, in a Tory stronghold, the Liberal not only snatches the
seat, but does so by a gain of 843 votes,
and not by auy abstention on the part
of his opponents, for be it noted the
Unionist actually polled 476 more votes
than did the successful candidate at the
general election. At Stamford, on the
other hand, a Conservative has beeu
elected by a majority of 282 votes only,
on a total poll of 8,100. Thus, in such a
Tory locality as Lincolnshire, the
Unionists, who at the general election
were ablo to send In their man unopposed, now find themselves within
measurable distance of defeat. Summed
up iu a few words, the position of parties, as evidenced by the results of the
bye-elections held since the last session
of the Houae, is as follows: There have
been in all eight contests, including the
two held last week. At the last general
election these eight Beats were held, six
by Unionists and two by Liberals; the
bye-elections have given three only to
the former party and five to the followers of Mr. Gladstone. The total number of bye-elections in the United Kingdom up to dato has beon 87, but a deduction of four has to be made in calculating the relative position of parties now
nnd in 1886, on account of the fact that
in the cases of Burnley, Sligo, Dundee
and Merthyr Tydvll, there have been
two bye-elections. The total is thus reduced to 83. At the general olection
those 83 seats were held by 62 Unionists
and 31 Liberals, and they are now held
by 40 Unionists and 43 Liberals. Thus,
the Liberals have gained 12 seats and
the Coercionists have lost a like numbor.
Further argument is unnecessary, for
we think these facts conclusively prove
that Lord Salisbury's Government no
longer holds the confidence of the electorate. The present Government is "in
power, but not in authority," and the
Liberal opposition has a very plain duty
before it. We think, with Sir William
Harcourt, that no opportunity should
be lost of testing the strength of the
Unionist party, for a Government which
has so plainly outstayed ita lease should
be evicted at the earliest opportunity.
SCIENTIFIC   MISCELLANY.
provided for winter use.
Active and Inactive Oxygen.—A
certain amount of disease, according to
Dr. B. W. Richardson, probably results
from the varying activity of the air's
oxygen, which may be made so inert as
to be useless for the support of life, or so
highly ozonized by heat or electricity as
to cause life quickly to expend itaelf.
Fortunately, he adds, in the balance of
forceB tlieir are two protective influences
at work. In the first place, the great
ozonized currents of air, carried in the
equatorial regions to an immense height,
are turned over to the poles, and In that
grand circuit are rendered negative before tbey return in the line of the earth
to the temperate and torrid zones. In
the second place, ozone attacks and decomposes dead rather than living matter.
Living matter is already charged witli it,
dead matter is ready to receive it, and
therefore uses it up. Thus, to a certain
extent, our very refuse, our organic excreted offensive refuse, is rendered a
vital service by devouring and utilizing
for new life our otherwise vital destroyer.
Electuification of Solah Kays.—In
the course of four years of experimenting, M. Albert Nodon haa established
the fact that when the sun's rays fall
upon an insulated conductor—metal or
carbon—they communicate thereto a
positive electric charge, whicli increases
with the intensity of the radiations and
decreases with the hygrometric state of
the air. At Paris the electrification is
greatest at about 1 p.m., when the air
ia clear and dry; but it disappears on
the passage of clouds near the sun.
The experiments indicate the source—
or, at least, one source—of atmospheric
electricity, as it may be assumed that
the surface of the earth becomes positively electrified, while the heated air
rises with a negative charge which it
imparts to the clouds. This hypothesis
would explain many thunderstorm
phenomena, including the frequency of
such storms over forests, rivers, lakes,
etc., where the cooler air causes the
electrified clouds to fall toward the earth
until a discharge takes place. The investigator urges thoughtful people generally to follow up these simple but fascinating observations.

THE LABOR CONFERENCE.
Thk Emperor William _ great international labor conference project, which
waB outlined at some length in these
columns recently, appears to be making
satisfactory progress towards materializing. A couple of weeks ago, says
Bradstreefs, reviewing the situation, the
Government of Switzerland, which had
formed the project of holding a labor
congress in Berne, the capital, published a programme of the subjects to be
discussed there. Since then, owing to
the issuance by the German Emperor of
hie now celebrated rescripts proposing a
conference of several European Governments, including that of Switzerland, to
consider the labor question, the Swiss
Government bas abandoned tbe idea of
holding a labor conference at Berne, and
haa announced its intention to be represented at the proposed conference at
Berlin. England, Austria, Italy,. Holland, Denmark, Sweden and Belgium
have also accepted the invitation of the
German Emperor to tako part in the
conference. The Gorman Government
haa instructed ita representatives in the
United States and in England to send
reports on the labor institution iu those
countries. The conference at Berlin
will be presided ovor by the Prussian
Minister of Commerce. The discussions
wiU be carried on in the French language. It is possible that the Belgiat
representatives will lay beforo the con*
ference a proposition for the holding of
another European conference to consider the question of a goneral disarmament.
If such a proposition should tuke
Bhape before the conference—and no
more appropriate question could be discussed in connection with economic and
labor reforms—the Emperor William's
famous rescript will, perhaps, be the
means of leading to greater results than
its author evor dreamed of. The conference, in nny event, by bringing together, upon a common plutform, some
of the most intelligent and thoughtful
minds of tho leading nations of the
earth, to devise means for the betterment of their fellows, nud particularly
of tbe laboring and oppressed classes, is
sure to eventuate in good and advance
the interests of humanity, whether the
direct objects aimed at be immediately
attained or not.
BYE-ELECTIONS AND THEIR
TEACHINGS.
No cibouustanobb speaks more eloquently of tbe collapse of tbe Unionist
party than their Btate of mind whenever
a bye-election is going on. Should their
candidate happen to retain a seat for the
party, the joy is delirious, nay hysteric,
even when the majority hns been reduced by hundreds of votes, ns was the
case In the recent election for the Patrick Division of Glasgow. Theoutbreak
of unrestrained joy at the result, although the majority bad been reduced
by fivo hundred ahd eighty-two, and in
A geographical glebe for the Shah of
Persia is to show the different countries

the seas will be represented by emeralds.

impregnated against fire and an outer

fixed in readily-connected frames. The
dining room is 90 feet long.
While Birmingham and Paris have
made great progress. in transmitting
power by compressed air, London haB
quietly adopted a hydraulic system, and
now has 40 miles of pipes charged with
water under a pressure of 760 pounds
per square inch. About 1,000 machines
—consuming '3,750,000 gallons weekly-
are now run by this power, which is also
an important aid in putting out fires.
A Gab Organ.—The pyrophoue, of
English origin, is a musical apparatus
depending on gas jets burned in a corresponding number of gloss tubes.
Each jet has its finger-key, pressure on
which causeB the flame to contract,
when a musical sound is given out. The
tone varies with the arrangement of
burners and size of tubes, making it possible to give all the notes of tho musical
scale in several octaves. Somo of the
glasB tubeB are nearly 11 feet long.
A Light That Shines Sixty Milks.
—A French photographic journal states
that a magnesium light of 20,000 candle
power may be produced by burning a
mixture of 20 parts of magnesium powder, 30 parts of barum nitrate, 4 parts of
flower of sulphur, and 7 parts of beef
suet. The melted suet is kneaded up
with the mixture, which is poured into
zinc cases holding about a pound each.
This quantity will burn for 2\) seconds
and gives a light visible 00 miles away.
Akti-iciai. Ska Watbr.—For the marine aquarium of the Paris Exhibition
of 1878, sea water was brought from the
English Channel by rail at a cost of some
$10,000. To provide a marine exhibit in
1880 without making such an outlay an
artifical sea water was successfully tried.
This was made by adding to 3,000 litres
(3,170 quarts) of river water, 79 kilograms, (174 pounds)of chloride of sodium,
11 of chloride magnesium, 3 of chloride
of potassium, 6 of sulyhate of magnes
intu, and 2 of sulphate of caelum. The
total cost did not excede $400, and the
results were very satisfactory.
Painting with thk Fkbt.— Paris
boasts many wonders, not the least in*
teresting of which is an armless portrait
painter ot the first rank. This artist Is
Miss Annee Rapin, a Swiss girl, who was
born with the one defect of having no
uniis. She early showed marvellous
dexterity in the use of her feet as hands,
and this power was carefully cultivated,
hor foot coverings being so arranged aB
to leave the toes uuconflned. Showing
a taste for drawing, she was sent to an
art school, where she soon became distinguished for the amazing skill and rapidity with which she executed her
work.
A Mbat Dibt.—Life and hoalth can be
sustained indefinitely on a diet of lean
meat and water, according to Prof. J. W.
Good, of the Manitoba Medical College.
The servants of the Hudson's Bay Company in tho Athabasca district and In
tlie Mackensie River region depend en
tircly on the natural food supply of the
country, some living on meat alone and
somo solely on fish, Great bodily and

A Youngster Who Heard tbe Breaking of
the Johnstown (I'm.) Dun tn the Lone
Star State—The Greatest of Nat-
lire's Many Freaks.
These were hts exact words, as faithfully reported In the New York Tribune:
"Yes, sir-e-e, I've seen him wtth my
own eyes, an' b'lleve what I see, 'cause
my eyes ain't never gone back on me
since they was flrst opened thirty-nine
yeara ago down in the good old Lone
Star State o' Texas. Qod bless her an'
old Sam Houston. Yes, sir-e-e, I tell
you I've seen him, an' he is the wonder-
fullest human being or any other being
that ever drew tbe breath o' life. I
ain't jokin'. Tain't no occasion to joke,
an' I ain't lyin\ 'cause down In Texas
folks don't lie for fun. Yes, sir-e-e, he's
got two of the ourusest years you ever
see. The one on the nigh Bide of his
face ain't no bigger'n the year of a
mouse, but tho one on the off side—gee-
mi-netty I Wy, see the size o' my band?
Well, air, It's bigger'n that, bigger by a
right smart, an' my hand ain't no baby's
flipper.
"There ain't no limit to his hearin'.
I've knowed him to hear two thousand
miles In air line. Last spring he stuod
on the front porch at home an' counted
the cannon shots what was flrod aa President Harrison como up tbe harbor at
tho Washington centennial. Ho hoered
the broakin' o' tho dam what caused the
flood In the Conemaugh valley. He
didn't know what it was at tho time. He
said it sounded liko thunder, but he
knew lt warn't thunder, an' we was all
mighty pm.i-.lod till the papers told us
what It was. 'There's a big storm on
the gulf,' he says, an' suro enough in a
day or two comes nows of great wavos
an' shipwrecks. 'It's a rainln' in California,' ho says, an' by an' hy we hear of
a storm over thore. 'There's a cyclone
In Kansas,' he says, an' oyclone it is, a
thoitsan' miles away. 'It's a comin' tbls
way,' he says, an' we get ready to dive
Into our collars. 'I hoar two enginos
crash together on a railroad ovor there,'
he says, an' ho points in the direction of
the sound an' we get a map an' mark it
down, an' next morning read all about
the accident ln the papers, Just where
he said it was. Ain't tbat wonderful
enough for you?"
"It seems incredible."
"Thore, I knowed you wouldn't believe it, 'oause you ain't seen It. Seein'

LONG  TOM  FLETCHER.
How He Silenced a Hostile Miwtlng and

"Long Tom Fletcher" Ib ono of tho
conspicuous figures In. tbe streets of
Washington- "Way down" in Missouri,
and "hefo' do wah," tho Colonol, wbo
afterward became tho flrst Republican
Governor pf Missouri, was known
throughout the State as tbe best shot
Within Its bordors. He thought nothing
ot throwing a silver half-dollar tip in
the air and hitting It with a pistol butt,
and bo hod so frequently competed with
a pistol at forty yards against a rifle
at two hundred, that the oountry yokels
would no longer permit him to onjoy
those trials of marksmanship at the
oounty fairs. In lhe early days of mil.
wys ft Washington coi-rcspondunt of tho
New York Tribune, when politics were
red hot in ttio State of Mlt.so-.irl, "Long
Tom Fletcher" was once hilled to address ft mooting in a country town upon
tlie burning questions of the hour, tt
was generally understood before tho audience assetntilod that certain ruffians In
the neighborhood bad pledged them*
selves to break up tlio meoting and
make things lively for the orator of the
occasion bosides. Evidence of stormy

tbo mgujpflt Fletcher stepped upon tho
platform, but coming forward ho quietly
plHod ft large Colt's army revolver upon

mild, persuasive tone of voice:
* "Grntlemen: I understand that there
ars some among you here who differ
slightly from me in politics, and thai
you propose to start a riot upon this

hen he significantly tapped the weapon
beside him—"that if any of you think

NEWSPAPER  FAKES.
A Name Applied to Imaginative Pieces ol
News.
Many Interesting stories oqnli be told
by some newspaper writers If they
choose as their subject the significant
Uttle word "fake."
Years ago, observes the New York
Commercial Advertiser, when the "moon
hoax" was printed ln the Sun, "faking"
was known as "hoaxing." As lt became
more and more common in certain newspapers, particularly during the war, >
"fake" was called a canard. At last an
apparently suitable name has been
found for a falsehood clothed ln truthful type. Imaginative pieces of news
aro now called simple "fakes."
Fakes are often killed in their infancy
or before they appear in print to go before the world as genuine news. An Instanco of this kind occurred recently In
the editorial rooms of a morning paper.
It was midnight when a newspaper
writer of note hurried Into the oity department and whispered hurriedly Into
tho ever-ready ear of the night oity
editor
"It must be a good beat to be worth
860," said the editor. "What 1b It?"
Thoro waa moro whispering by the
newspaper writer, a low whistle from
tho editor and a nod of approval. Half
an hour later tho copy of "an exclusive
sensation" lay on his desk and the newspaper writer was hurrying to the counting-room with an order for 850 in cash.
But tbe story never appeared,
although it had a narrow escape. The
plot was laid ln Washington, but
through ono small error tho hoax waa
discovered. While tho writer acknowledged tho fake he unconcernedly excused it by saying that ho "arrived ln
town without his pocket-book and had
to raise money immediately."
Othor leas during fakers confino tbem*
solves to bogus interviews with prominent persons in stories that aro published
as rumors In one edition to be contradicted in the next. Some fake
writers delight to write wonderful
yarns about actors and actresses. Jay
Gould haa furnished columns of olever
fakoB in hia eventful career, whilo Mr
Cleveland, Goneral Sherman, Chauncey
M. Depow and a number of other notable men have heen viotims of fakes,
many of which havo almost passed as
facts Into hlatory of their lives. As a
specimen of the genuine "fake" the
Hayes chicken-raising story may bo
cited Many persons believo to-day that
Ruthorford B. Hayes, once President of
tlio United States, Is raising chickens lor
pleasure and profit at bis Ohio home.
That story was an amusing 'fake," and

A  WOMAN'S   FOOT
What Its   Dliniiiisitiiii   should   :
Huh* lt Should Be Used,
A woman's foot should bo in length i
little less tlian one-seventh of ber
hoight] it should bo arched on the top
s.i that the line is that of one-half of
Cupid'a how, and undornoath so tbat If
it is wot and set on the floor It will
leave in themUldleonlyasIender watermark, broadest across tho ball, the rosy
toes, of which tne second should bo tbe
longest, should spread flat upon the
ground at every stop Tho heel should
bn rosy and tlcsuend almost in a straight
line from behind, tho ankle delicutrly
rounded Thesoftaud cushion-like in
atop ahould bo marked by faint blue
veins.
Thu foot, says tho Now York Journal,
done ies character, as woll as tbo faco
Ladles of Spanish doscont huvo the
smallest feet. For a long timo Spun isi.
etiquette forbade a woman's foot to bt
seen. Hence the old adage that "lo
know tho length of a woman's foot was
lo on Joy a great degreo of favor."
Women should walk from the hip, the
waist being still, exoept from that
gentle willowy motion which accompanies tho most graceful figures,
Ono of the bost modes of attaining
this walk from tho hip Is to practice
walking with something poised on the
head. Tbo graceful Hindoo girl can
carry a pitcher on hor boad unsupported
by bor hand, because sho moves from
tbe hip, not from the waist or shoulder.
Most American womon walk badly. A
peculiar fact about many New York
women with vory small foot ls lhat tbey
walk with a heavy, thumping step, as if
tboy woro club-footed. This may be
duo to tho fact of tight shoes, for It is
almost an tnvariablo weakness of ladies
with naturally small toot to pinch thoae
members unmercifully.
UNDER   RECOGNIZANCE.
How  a  Georgia Judge  Disposed  of   a
Tough Hoarding-Houtju Ham.
"Wo had all boen attending court on
tho blnnk circuit," said an old lawyer to
an Atlanta Constitution man, "and old
Judge Wisdom had presided wtth hiB

wo had finished the wook'sbusiness, and
were all seated at the table of Mra.
Gdgecut's boarding-house, finishing the
farewell dinner,
Mrs. Edgecut had been very kind
and attentive to us all during tbe week,
and that day she was more considerate
than over. On the table reposed a cold-
boiled ham, as hard as a hickory maul
and as stale. We had cut, and hacked",
and chipped from its callous surface all
tho woek, and still it came up frosh and
smiling, tho center dish on the table
meal aftor meal.
" 'Gentlemen, aheml' said Judge Wisdom; 'conduct yourselves with proper
deportment now.1 Then, rising from
his soat, ho began. 'To all and singular,
the sheriffs, constables and othor officers of the county aforesaid, greeting:
I recognize this ham, and do hereby
command aaid ham to be and Appear at
tho full tormof the honorable superior
court In nnd for said county, and to appear from day to day and from term to
term until properly dismissed by the
court.'
"Great gunsl Old Mrs. Edgecut had
stood ln tho corner, arms folded and ft
smile of pleasant anticipation on her
face when tho Judgo aroso, but as he
proceeded she stood mute and paralysed
tor ft momont, and then burst forth auch
a torrent of abuse and Invectives as we
bad never beard bofore. Judge Wisdom's conclusion was drowned tn the
storm of her wrath."

NEW BURIAL SCHEME.
Our Bodies to Be Dried and Put
Away ln Vaults.
Dislocation the Latest Fad of enthusiasts
-Some Bespeets tn Whleh It Excels
Cremation — Provisions Against
Prsmauure Interment.
A new disposition of the dead as proposed may be called the "latest thing tn
life." Ground for a "new mausoleum"
lBtobebroken.lt ls said by the New
York Sun, ln the spring. The Idea
underlying the new mausoleum ia based
on the faot that a current of dry air will
preserve a body from decomposition,
and change It Into a condition resembling lifo,' in which It will remain for an
indefinite time. This process ls applied
by nature to the unfortunate traveler
and his beast who succumb upon tbe
great deserts. In the Smithsonian Institution aro many bodies thus desiccated
by nature which have been brought
from the battlefields of Mexico and
Peru, from Southorn plains and Indian
districts of the far West. The ancient
Colchlans and Tartars suspended tbelr
dead from branches of treea to be dried
by air and sun. The Peruvians flrst
dried tbelr deceased friends and
then burled thom ln a sitting posture.
Savages of South Australia place tho
dead body on the top of tho hut till perfectly dried, whon it Is bandaged and
hidden among tbo branches of tbe trees.
Tho body retains its form in the proo-
ess, und the skin, chough it bocomos
hard and dry like leather, remains
white, whilo the faoe, though more or
Ioks emaciated, remains life-like and
recognizable  .
Modern science and skill are to be applied to tho original preservative power
of the atmosphere. Experiments have
recently been made by specialists, flrst
on animals and later oh human bodjoa.
In tbe course of one recent experiment
conducted by a sanitary engineer in
Washington, ln nine weeks a pig was
reduced ln weight from 2a to IH pounds,
and remained Just as plump and round
as In life. In a laboratory ln tbls city
tbo body of a man weighing 104 pounds
was subjected to the process in 1868, and
the effect was marvellous.
Tho arrangement for the Interment of
desiccated bodies ln tbe new mausoleum
will bo similar tc that of tbo drawers tn
safety deposit vaults, while the interior
plan of the building will resemble that
of a well-appointed public library, with
main corridor and diverging bails leading to different sections. These drawers or sepuluhers will bo of solid concrete four IncbeB thick wltbout joint or
seam, of certain Bices, and arranged tn
tiers of six on either side of thu hallway. The opening Into eacb sepuleher
will be provided with two doors, tbo
inner one of glass hermetically sealed
as soon as occupied, through which the
body may bo viewed by those holding
tho keys; the outside of Iron, wrought
gold, silver or bronio, decorated and
adorned according to the ability and
taato of relatives.
For family use the-e will be separate
and distinct compartments of various
sizes, with sets or suites of sepulchors
adorned as desired and having but a single entrance.
The space that holds the casket will
be a cell of concrete permitting neither
the escape nor admission of moisture
In the erection of the walls hollow pipes
or conduits will be formed over molds,
so that no destructible material, as Iron
or metal, will be needed,
Through theBe conduits will bo made
to pour Into tbo hermetically-sealed sepulchors currents of dry air, which,
passing rapidly and repeatedly around
the body, will extract therefrom every
trace of moisture, vapor or fluid and convey it to a hugd furnace, where, without
possibility of escape, all noxious matter
will be destroyed. Gradually the body
becomes hard, smooth and dry, with little or no change of appearance, and once
done preservation Is secured forever.
Provision ls to be made against pro-
mature interment by the adjustment of
electrical appliances to eho body, so
that tbe faintest motion will be Instantaneously conveyed to the guard by
moans of alarm signals,
Tbe mausoleum will occupy comparatively little space. A building covering
100 feet square oould inclose 10,000
sepulcherB, and one that occupied an
acre would provide as many resting-
placoB as a cemetery of thirty-five acres.
It Is Intended that ample and suitable
grounds shall surround the building,
and that adornment inside and out will
be made as perfect as taato and wealth
can dictate.
The sepulchers will be numbered and
registered as lots tn a cemetery, and a
fund will be provided for the perpetual
care of all treasures of art or nature
that may be provided, All records of
iniormont will be kept In the mausoleum. A chapol will be provided for the
discharge of the last rites.
The cost of single sepulchers will probably riugo from 810 to8300, whilo family
oompartments will vary from 8000 to
840,000. Burial lots in oitlos rango from
8400 to 85,000 for space to allow six
graves, to which must be added the cost
of headstone, monument, statuary, Inclosuro and care.
Conorete Is the material ot whtch Itls
proposed to build the mausoleum. Research, ancient and modern, establish
the quality of this material for impenetrability, insolubility and consequent
permanence, oven an earthquake being
powerless to destroy buildings made of
it. This substance will no doubt be
faced by ornamental materials.
Time and Its Apportionment.
Whatever ol hor inequalities wo may
labor under, wn ull have an equal
amount of timo, tbo only question being
how to apportion it. One will bo Inde-
fatlgably busy every moment through
the day and painfully exhausted at
night, and yet the results may bo quite
unsatisfactory to himself and to others,
because he has worked erratically or
from impulse, without foresight or
judgment. Anothor knows what ho can
do or oan not do, and plans his tlmo accordingly. He arranges for nocdud rest
and leisure, he selects his employments
tn the order of their Importance, and
lets the rest go without a strugglo. He
may not accomplish quite bo much of
certain things in a day aa bis unmethodical neighbor; but, on the scale of a
year his achievements will be far more
valuable, and on the scale of a lifetime
his own health and happiness and that
of his family, as well as his usefulness
to society, will be Immeasurably greatot
A Murprlie for the Dade.
A First street merchant tolls of a very
funny Incident whtoh happened In front
of hts store recently, says the Portland
Oregonlan. A young lady was standing
ln the doorway beside sevoral dummies
waiting for a street-oar when there
oame along an attenuated specimen of
the exaggerated dude, with a pair of
ptnee nex glasses.. astride a very prominent nose,' and mistaking, or pretending to mistako, the lady for a dummy,
took hold of her oloak as if to examine
the quality of the material. In Iobs
than a seoond an umbrella whirled by a
well-developed arm Oame down crash on
the dude's plug hat, driving It down
over hts ears and completely extinguishing hlm; and, as ho extricated his
hypsistenocephalus head and passed on
amid the shouts and laughter ot the
spectators, the young lady calmly resumed her statuesque pose, as If sot to
catoh the next gawking fool that oame
along.

A Pleasant Event.
After the usual parade on Saturday
night Master Gunner Cornish addressed
the men, thanking them for their attendance and attention at drill during
the course of instruction, and complimented them on the progress they had
made. After closing his remarks he
stepped hack expecting the parade to be
dismissed, but it turned out that he waa
not to get off so easily. Captain
Townley moved to the front, called tho
Battery to attention, and on behalf of
the Artillery Company presented Mr.
Cornish with a neat little address hacked
up by a handsome purse, plump and
fair looking. The instructor waa more
than surprised, hut managed to make a
suitable reply to the address and presentation. After the company was dis
missed a general handshaking followed,
and Mr. Cornish weut home feeling that
his work had heen thoroughly appre

The Channel   Improvements,
Mr. T. F. Sinclair, contractor for the
sandheads and channel improvements,
has commenced work for the season, and
has a large number of men employed.
The mattresses are being made ou Lulu
Island near Ewen's cannery, and some
of them will be sunk this week. About
25 mattresses will be laid down this season, and it is expected tho whole contract will he finished in two montha
time. Mr. Sinclair has chartered the
steamer Delta to do the towing in connection with the woik, and to bringdown
the rock from Pitt Lake used in sinking
and anchoring the mattresses. Latest
soundings go to show that the channel
ia steadily deepening, and it is expected
that by the time the work of improving
and narrowing the channel is completed,
that at least 25 feet of water will cover
the sandhead bar at low tide. Thia will
give a depth of water at half tide sufficient to float the largest vessel that plies
on tho Pacific Ocean.
Storms and Frost.
The atr. Adelaide arrived down from
Climax Lauding on Saturday night after
a somewhat lengthy absence from port.
The report that the Adelaide was detained in the first place by the ice turns
out to be incorrect. She waa proceeding
to Chilliwack when a sudden storm
came up, the like of which had not been
aeen ou the river for several years, and
bo fiercely did the wind blow that Capt.
Burr was forced to turn the vessel's head
and seek refuge in a sheltered cove near
Climax Landing. The storm continued
all that night and the following day, and
did not cease till nightfall. During the
night a sharp frost aot in and the noxt
morning the cove was frozen over to a
depth of several inches. As it was impossible for the Bteamer to pull out of
this without seriously injuring her
wheel, there was nothing to do but wait
patiently for a thaw. On Saturday the
ice was so rotten and broken up that
the Bteamer was got outof the cove
without trouble and proceeded to port.
Among the passengers brought down
by the Adelaide were two young bears
whicli Capt Burr bought from an Indian
who lived near Climax Lauding. The
Indian went out shooting one day last
week and struck bear tracks which he
followed up Sumas Mountain until the
den was reached. He artfully contrived
to get mother bruin outside and there
killed lier .villi a bullet from his rifle. On
exploring the den the Indian fouud two
cubs, only a few days old, which he carried off alive and sold to Capt. Burr for
a small sum, The little chaps are

From the Arctic Circle.
Itis now nearly a year since Mr.Pike,
of Saturua Island, left Westminster on
a trip to the Artie circle iu search of big
fame. His departure was duly noted iu
he Columiiian at the timo. He had
not been heard from until a few
days ago, when a Vlctoriaan received
a letter from him from Great Slave
Lake. Mr. Pike says tliat he had a very
rough time of it, aB during the depth of
winter it was very severe weather in
those northern latitudes. He writes
that the country up there is a veritable
sportsman's paradise, musk ox, and cariboo being found in immense herds.
The discomforts of winter are so great
that Mr. Pike does not intend to stay
another oue, and will probably return
to civilisation next fall. He speaks very
highly of the kindness of tlie Hudson
Bay Company's employees, who have
given him all the aid possible. Hia
letter to Victoria waB sent hy them by
way of North Mackenzie River.

Coining Lectures.
The well known and talented Dr. Or-
pha D. Baldwin, Superintendent of the
National Women's Christian Temperance Union, will give two lectures in
Herring's opera house this week, Tuesday and Wednesday evenings, under
the auspices of the ladies of the W. C.
T. U. The subjects will tie, "How to
make Life worth Living," and "What
should we teach our Children." Besides these Dr. Baldwin will give au address to girls of 16 years and over, on
Wednesday afternoon at the Orange
Hall. Dr. Baldwin is said to he a very
talented speaker, and she comes with
the very highest recommendations. Tho
announcement of lectures will be found
in another column. The following complimentary nice is takon front the Mas-
sildou, O, Daily Independent: "Blest
with the tact that knows how to teach
without tiring, Dr. Baldwin talked for
more than an hour in a practical vein,
illustrating her remarks by the use of a
manikin wnich vividly brought to mind
the mysterious processes by which we
live."

Two II una way*.
An exciting runaway took place this
morning from the Colonial Hotel down
Columbia street. Stevens stage team
which runs between thiB city and Vancouver, wob standing in front of the
hotel, and by some means took fright
aud darted down the street. Several
attempts to check the affrighted animals
was made, but without success, and
they gradually increased their speed
until DesBriaay's corner waB reached,
where the front wheel came in contact
with a verandah poat, tearing it from
its fastenings and wracking the wood
work to a considerable extent. At the
time of the collision with the post some
of the harness broke, and one of the
horses got loose from the vehicle a few
yards further on. The other horse left
with the wagon was easily stopped and
the loose runaway was captured a few
minutes afterwards. Both horses and
the stage were somewhat injured, hut
not seriously.
Another lively runaway occurred thia
afternoon, and despite appearances to
the contrary it proved a very harmless
affair. One of McDonald's drays waB
standing at the depot, and while the
driver waB in the baggage room getting
a trunk, the horses started up town on
their own accord. When nearly opposite Douglas street the lynchpm flow out
of its socket, depositing the hindermoat
and most valuable part of the waggon on
the road. ThiB incident thoroughly
startled the animals and they dashed up
Columbia Btreet at their best runaway
pace. They got over an excavation opposite the Bushby Block without accident, and by the lucky slipping of another plu tlie balance of the vehicle was
lain down in front of the Bank of Montreal. With nothing to impede their
movements except one of the whiflletree
yokes, the animals increased their
speed and tore up Columbia street at a
terrible rate. They were Btopped oppoalte the Crescent, not a bit the worse
of their run, aud the whole damage to
this bad looking runaway can be repaired
by the outlay of only a few cents.
Union  Pacific Termlnui.
The Seattle Journal states "on the
best of authority," that the Union Pacific will make itB northern terminus at
Port Angeles. The line is now being
surveyed from Centralia in Lewis county, and the line will be built north from
that plat*, with a line also running to
Seattle. The reason that the yards and
terminal facilities will be established at
Port Angeles Is that the Union Pacific
people found it impossible to get ground
switching facilities sufficient in Seattle,
and have eonseuuently decided to go to
Port Angeles. While the harbor there
Ib not excelled, It gives a direct outlet to
the sea, and this, with the ease and
cheapness with which land for the terminal facilities could be acquired there,
coat the die in favor of this location.
The company now owns 1,200 aores
along the town front and have options
on several thousand acres.

A Fight for l'oaieaalon,
An interesting fight is now going ou
between two parties of capitalists for
the passage of a private bill through the
Legislature and the possession of 60C
ncres of mining lands situated nt Yale,
Tlie facts of the case appear to be aB follows : Messrs. Teaguo and Douglas purchased from the Dominion Government,
as a mineral claim. 600 acres known as
Hill's Bar, opposite Yale. This waB
done after a decision of the Supreme
Court of Canada had been given deciding that the proporty belonged to tho
Dominion. They interested London
capitalists in the enterprise and about
$80,000 was spent in placing machinery,
etc, on the ground. Subsequently the
Privy Council of Great Britain reversed
the decision of the Supreme Court of
Canada and declared that the title of
this property rested with the Province,
It then became necessary for Messrs.
Teague and Douglas to apply to the
Province and they accordingly made application in tho form of a private bill.
Long after these people had purchased
from the Dominion Government, however, a party of capitalists applied for
the "swag"—the old channel—including
the best part of the claim, and are now
asking for the passage of a private bill
with the same provisions as that of the
other parties. They contend that the
Dominion had uo right to the property
when it was purchased by the original
parties and that their claim is as good
under the provincial lawa as the other
applicants'. It is generally considered
that legally they may be correct, morally they aro not.—Timet.
Inhuman Atrocities.
London, March 8.*—Two letters have
just been received from Zoloff, a Nihilist
murderer in Siberia. Thoy tell of tragedies most horrible. "We are thirty
prisoners huddled up in the barracks in
Yakutsk," he says. "Our treatment
was almost unbearable, the work was
very hard and we subsisted on a starvation diet. Upon the least pretence we are
placed in a dark cell for weeks at a time,
but that might have been home had
not Governor Ostachkin in February,
1889, issued orders denying us the privilege of receiving money from friends and
allowing us but five pounda of baggage-
The prisoners remonstrated and aaked
the governor to roconaider hiB order.
The governor coiiBidered the petition in
the light of a "retellion," continued
Zoloff, "and he ordered every one of ub
to be put lu irons. A few hours later
we were again called iuto the yard when
Lieutenant Plesoff aud a strong force of
soldiers marched up into the police
building, whon some one said that we
were to wait for a final decision from the
governor. Plesoff thundered, 'What,
you refiiBo to obey orders?' Plesolf then
gave tlie signal to the soldiers who surrounded the helpless band of prisoners.
The commander of the soldiers wbb Lieutenant Karanchan and together with a
major marched the prisoners buck to the
Erison yard. 'Give it to them boya,'
lieutenant Karanchan said. The soldiers attackod the prisoners with their
bayonets. Several, including two women, were pierced through. The women
were oil their knees begging for mercy
wheu the soldiers thrust their shining
bayonets through them. Then a volley
of shots were fired. We tried to break
through their ranks but most of us were
killed, although we cried for morey.
Comrade Schur fell ou hia knees before
the lieutenant, and Karanchan fired into
his body, holding his victim's head so
that he would not miss."
