Spontunoou*  CoiiiliiiNtioii   of Colored
A correspondent of the London
Times says: "One of my children
complained that a smell of burnt paper
was perceptible in the house. This
smell had been noticed some hours
previously, but was not then traced to
its source. A careful search led to the
discovery that n paper lump shade in
one of the rooms hud been entirely
consumed by fire, Por two days prior
to the accident, the lamp, a duplex,
had not been lighted, and there had
been no fire in the room. Since the
morning of that day, when the room
was dusted and the shade apparently
in its usual condition, no one had entered the room. The shade wns made
about a year ago from so-called crinkled
tissue paper, one white and one yellow
sheet, gathered together on the
upper part where it wus fixed to the
wire frame, where it. formed a considerable bunch, and spreading thence over
the frame below. Ou examination the
yellow paper was found to be covered
liy chrotnate of lead, and this uo doubt
wus the cause of the accident. There
can, I think, be no doubt that this wns
a genuine case of spontaneous ignition,
though I havo not as yet been able experimentally to reproduce the necessiiry
conditions leading to such a result.
Fortunately tliere were no readily in-
fiiiuimnhle articles neiir, or a serious
fire might have resulted, the origin of
which would probably never even have
lieen suspected. The dangerous paper
is readily recognized by setting lire to
n piece of it and blowing out the flume.
In the case of ordinary paper it will lie
found thut the glow iilong the burnt
edge is very soon extinguished, whereas in the case of these chroinute papers
it continues until the whole is consumed, as is the cuso with ordinary
touch paper. I find that besides the
yellow paper, pale green paper also
contains chromate of lead, and would,
no doubt, be equally dangerous, and
possibly there nre papers of other
colors containing the same material.
It would be interesting to learn
whether any similar case has been observed before."
Gold Production.
Current statistics of lhe country's
gohl prolnct in 1*1)8 estimate it approximating $8<>,0U0,000 - 8:l,0ll(i,UtO
more than 189*!. The silver product
for 181)11 is estimated at a little over
$78,000,000 -a decrease of $'1,000,000
from the previous year. The returns
published lu various papers lately show
the yield of gold in Australasia for 'IKl
to be l,H7ii,iVil ounces. Giving this a
value of t'20 an ounce would make
that worth 1:17,681.240. It will be
observed that Australasia produced
more gold last yeur than the United
States. For the first three months of
1894 the Witwatersrund district in
South Africa has produced 417,053
ounces, an increase of nearly 50 per
cent over last year. The South Afr-
can gold, so reputed, is about 0 82 line.
If the African output is kept up during
the year, the total will be about that
of the United States for tho same
period     Tho   average   annual   gold

As A 'STRANGER is amongst, us,
anxious to gut himself elected to a
prominent position, it may bu worth
while to ascertain his Illness for it,
ami whether it is to our uitvttiitugo to
place hiin there, and oust one, who bus
hitherto proved himself the right man
in the right 'place and who decidedly bus
a personal claim on us, both as possessing an intimate knowledge of onr district und its requirements, its inhabitants, and their wishes, us wall us
holding u lurge pecuniary stake himself iu the constituency.
We need scarcely say that Col. linker is tho niiiii; who for soino years lias
satisfactorily represented the (lisirict
at Victoria, and judiciously expended
the money allotted by the government;
who is a courteous gentleman, accessible to nil, und who at present, actively
engaged ns be is in ministering to the
wnnts of the sufferers by the late
floodg, is unable personally to advocate
his own cause. He deserves the support of every elector, nnd it would be
disgraceful if voters, in his absence,
should nllow themselves to bo led away
by the specious, but empty arguments
of an utter stranger. And what bus
Mr. Schou to urge in his own behalf,
or what sensible reason can he give
why he should be elected to supersede
a good man ? Can he shew any record
of previous experience iu representing
any constituency ? Can ho g've us
any guarantee that hc possesses the
slightest knowledge fitting him for the
position? Hns beany acquaintance
with tho topography of this part of
the country, its necessities, its people,
or how to curry out improvements
already commenced, or pb.lined for the
future? Iu fact, does ho know the
least thing about it except perhaps,
the roll of its electors.
It appears to us the* height of pro-
sumption for such a man to show himself here. Should he possess any
qualifications for administration, why
has he not shewn them in bis own
district, where it is possible be may be
known, or, is that the reason of his
goiug so far afield. We recommend
him to save his time nud money, and

Dbaii Sill,-I think the underwritten complaint a just one and I should
feel obliged if you would insert it iu
yonr columns.
On Juno 10th I asked Mr. Goldie,
the Windermere Government official,
if the logs blown on to tho wagon
road by the recent gnle, might be cut
out. He, Mr. Goldie, promptly said
be would send a man and have it done.
I particularly nsked him if the ranchers
iu tho district, where the bulk of the
logs wero, cculd not do the work ; but
bo persisted in sending a man from
Several of our ranchers nre thro'
with their work and would have beou
glnd to have done it, nnd if this sort, of
work is done by ranchers at all, and it
wns a rancher employed hy Mr, Goldie,
I consider it belongs to locul men.
Now, if Mr. Goldie hnd given this to
local men it would have cost him one
third less, as there would not have
been the 60 miles of travel with man
and leain; besides whicli it would
havo caused less of the endloss coiiton-

To the Electors of East
Gentlemen,���I beg to solicit your
support, as an Opposition candidate.
I will, if you should do mo the great
honor of electing me, seek to serve you
faithfully. I hope to have on several
occasions the opportunity of expressing
to you my views iu detail, I need therefore but briefly stale lie: c, I hut I am
strenuously opposed to extravagant expenditure on unnecessarily large piblic
buildings and superfluous officialism.
I object also to a Government railway
policy which, iu the notable instance
of the Nakusp & Slocun Railway,
hands over all profits to undisclosed
company mongers, nnd subjects tbe
Province to ull risks of loss. I am
strongly opposed nlso to the grant of
charters in favor of merely "paper"
railways and meant to be used for peddling in the money market. I shall
support all possible measures for restricting Chinese and Japanese immigration. I am in favor of a large
reduction in the exactions now levied
on the miner and favor also further
simplification of the mining laws. I
would encourage small firm holdings
and would aid all equitable legislative
efforts for the breaking up of large
areas of good land, held by tho speculator wild and unnsed. Lastly, I am
opposed to the persistent grant of
statutory favors to money broking
rings and syndicates, and would have
all public work given out fairly and
equitably, regardless of the political
views held by those engaged. These
ure some of my leading positions on
things political and it is for you to
decide, under tho ample protection of
the ballot, which candidature you prefer at this important juncture.
