by the protracted absence of her husband, who has not been heard of since

-New York, Aug.  111.—The Goelet cup
race yesterday was saila'd under favorable
conditions.   The wind  iu  tbe morning
wns  fresh  from the south west.    Over
100 yachts were in the   harbor.    The
Klectra steamed down  through the east
channel to her station opposite Brenton
Reef  lightship,   where  she   was    very
Binooth and the wind constantly freshening.   The Block Island course, which was
selected by the committee, was abont 37
miles from an imaginary line drawn from
the Electra to Brenton Reef lightship, to
and around   the  mark boat northeast
from Block Island light, distant about
two     miles,      and     due      east      of
Block      Island      being      about      a
mile; thence to nnd around the murk

as for the start.   The mark boats to be

was fired at llu. m. and in less than
eight minutes thereafter all competing
yachts had crossed the line.  The Electra
waited   for   Ihe Gorilla and  Mnrealila,
whieh had a race to the first mark  boat
and return, the Gorilla  winning by  10
miles.     The Dauntless carried away her
jib stay and returned.   The   Kutrina  led

in tbe city and just before noon drove
out to the Gorge. Previous to getting
the vehicle, all hail hzeu drinking considerably, and by tbe time the party had
arrived at the Gorge none of them were
in a lit state to remember anything lhat
passed. When tbe arm was reached, a
halt was made at Marshall's saloon, and
the whole party alighted to continue
their spree. When they had been in the
bar for some minutes Lowe left the room
without saying where he was going to,
and those left behind hardly noticed Ida
absence. A quarter of an hour after, a
shout came up from the water, and
Hatherley, who appears to have been the
onlv one sensible of anything, rusheal out
and saw the naked body of a man lloal-
ing through tbe Gorge. Calling
to his companions, and thoroughly
sobered up by thu sight, he

Loudon, Aug. 10.—A corresp""ii'ental
Constantinople wbo has been studying
the political situation of Turkey, telegraphs this evening as follows: "Leaving
matters in Crete out of the question, the
political situation is full of interest. Recent events have brought forcibly to the
minds of the Sultan and those surrounding him thut another strand in the rope
by which they bold on lo power in
Europe is aliout to suap, and thev must
prepare for the inevitable. Leading
Turks whose opinions are candidly expressed, sny they know that things cannot last much longer ns they arc, and
more than one has not hesitated to lay
the responsibility on the shoulders
of the Sultan and the system
by which every branch of the Government is in his hands. No honest man
lias now any chance of being heard.
Therefore sui'li abstain from taking part
in politics and resolutely refuse office.
In this way the Sultan's choice is limited,
and dishonest or incapable advantage iB
taken of the state of things by foreign intriguers to puah their political, financial
and commercial schemes, the succeBS of
whicli in the end means the annihilation
of tlie power of the Turks. For some
time past the Germans have been quietly
and persistently urging thc entry
of Turkey into n central alliance, and there is very high
authority for saying that Bismarck attaches the greatest importance to her doing so. The report published lhat Turkey had
JOINED THE  ALLIANCE
is premature. The Turks require guarantees which the German Chancellor
does not sec liis way clear to give, and
they have to consider the way in which
Russia might look on their throwing
themselves unreservedly into the bands
of Germany. There is, however, a
strong pro-German party at the palace,
among them Kismit Pashu, Grand
Vizier. Lately he openly proposed to
lhe Sultan to join the triple alliance, but
was told never to mention the subject
again. On the whole, the tendency is to
come to nn 'understanding with Russia,
in default of satisfactory assurances from
Germany or England.
It is pretty well understood that the
policy of Salisbury is rather to use Tur-
kev as a subject for bargaining with Russia in relation to India than to maintain,
her as a buffer against Russian aggression. Tlio Turks, therefore, think that
sb far as England is concerned they
would better make the bargain for themselves with Russia than be bargained
over.
THE   ENOL1SII   OCCliTATION   Ot   «"T1"T
sticks in the throat of the Turk, no matter what party he belongs to, and there
can be no friendship between England
and Turkey, while English soldiers are
in Egvpt. An English gentleman, who
has lately travelled in Asia minor, from
Bagdad to tlie Mediterranean coast, says
it ia quite common to meet with peasants
who speak Russian. There are men who
were prisoners in Russia during the war
and having been well Heated are quite
friendly disposed towards their conquerors. All generals, from Qhazl Ostium
Pasha downwards, are more or less well
inclined towards Russia, and hold a high
opinion of her power anal resources. In
official circles, the Germans who have
been imposed upon the Turks hy the
persistant* of M. Radervitz, German
Ambassador, have things
PRETTY   Ml I'll  'HI Kill  nw:a   WAV.
but outside of these circles, there is great,
jealousy of the control they have acquired
and this is especially so among the military. Many hold the opinion thnt Van-
dergoltae Pasha and otlier German officers are merely sent to acquire a knowledge of the country and iirmy in order to
utilize il one day for lhe benefit of Austria, which country, next to England, the
Turks most distrust am account of her
occupation of BoSnia and Herzegovina
[ Speaking generally ol the Turkish
situation, Tt may be neacrlbed as one of
fear for BUSSla and mistrust
!of all other powers. Meanwhile,
! in order to maintain neutrality,
: the Turks are arming. Probably WO.OU
| men in Europe and as man) room in
j Asia Minor, would be the ax tell I of the
I force with which the Turks a'niild defend
j their neutrality. What is mosl feared at
Constantinople is a sudden descent from
Sebastapool and Odessa on the entrance
I to the Bospheroiis and the landing of n
i large Russian force lo the north of Constantinople before resistance could be
organized. To guard against this to a
certain extent, new Krupp guns of heavy
calibre which had been lying for mouths
under shed ot the arsenal at Toppaneh,
have heen Bent up to the forts, and new
works are projected.
'I'HE AUSTRIAN BTRIKE8.
It would be a mistake to suppose tbat
the partial collapse of the great slrike in
the textile factories of Brunn, Austria,
indicates a breakdown in the movement
for higher wages which is going on in
nearly ul1 parts of Central Europe. There
are in Brunn seventy cotton and woollen
mills, employing aboul 15,000 persons,
and of these 14,000 recently struck
against the present scale of wages. At
twenty woollen factories 7,OUO operatives
afterwards resumed work, an equal number therefore continuing the Btrnggle.
The working hours in the Brunn textile
factories are eleven per day, and the
average earnings of men are not more
than six florins or twelve shillings a
week, women receia'e'nig two florins
weekly, ll is not strange thai wage-
earners under such circumstances mate
strenuous efforts to improve their condition. Indeed the strike at Brunn is but
a part of the wide-spread agitation iu
Germany, as in the coal nrning districts
of Westphalia, and has been decidedly
successful.
TUE  TKOlTILES  IN  ITIETK
, are causing considerable uneasiness at
both the British and Berlin offices, owing to the opportunity they give Russia
] for playing the part of Christian protec-
I tor in joining with Greece to force Turkey to ameliorate the condition of Cretan
Christians who have for years  Buffered
I patiently ot the hands of the Bnrklih
administration. The men appointed to
udminster the Government of the country have resorteal to every species of
brutality to collect taxes, and in addition
their own exactions hy which they recoup
themselves for the sum thev have to pay
to tbe palace ring at Constantinople,
through whom they have obtained office
and hope to retain. It is admitted that
the general disorder and inisgovernment
whicli have prevailed there for some
time, has caused many hitherto peaceful
oitizenB to follow the lead of the wilder
revolutionary spirits and that the consequence may yet be disastrouH to the
peace of Europe.

ISeveral sample dinners were place! bsfors
I ss to taste. A large plats of boiled or friaat
| fish ami potatoes, or of veal cutlets snd po-
i tatc.es, coet 17 ore (about 5 cents). These
j were really substantial dishes, thoroughly
' welt cooked and cleanly ssrvsd. As a nils
the managers of these places are women.
The meals are served by clean-looking and
neatly dressed girls, who are exceedingly polite to btrangera, especially
foreigners, and courtesy as bewitch-
ingly as the milk maid in "Patience."
Tbe manager binds himself to sup.
ply the publlo with good and well-prepared food, cold or warm, including coffee,
tea, cocoa, mineral water, cigars, etc., on
his own account He further binds himself
to sell spiritous liquors and wines only Ior
cash paid on the spot; not to sell to persons
"fuddled with drink, or under age;" not to
go on selling spirits to persons who "require
several drams in succession, or who pay renown 1 visit, to the public houso within
ahort intervals." All spiritous liquors are
furnishel from the company's vessels. The
casks containing the liquor must be so kept
as to bo un la-r strict control. No liquor oan
even be sirvaa 1 in any but the regulation
glass or mug, the former containing two
cubic Inches.
HOW IT WORKS.
Once a week the manager is bound to pay
the cumpany for all the spirits he has received for Bale, whether sold according to
the tariff or still remaining as stock on
hand. He is bound also to sell his st res as
he receives them; he may add no Ingredients, or otherwise alter their quality.
Ho may not without special permission introduce musical entertainments. This does
away with all the lower-grade concert dew,
though good music and entertainment can
be had at tho summer gardens and authorised music hall--. Should the manager break
any of the provisions under whieh he (or
she (is appointed, be (or she) oan be dis
missed at once without compensation.
Accompanied by Mr. Rubsnson, 1 visited
at least half of the public houses of Gothenburg, and we found tbem uniformly clean,
orderly, airy and decent During the first
hour of our tour they were filled with work-
ingmen enjoying their dram, (almost Indispensable before dinner to the Swede) and
such dinners as those described above. 1
was struck with the civility and attention
bestowed upon all' customers by the managers and their not infrequently fascinating
assistants. Without entering into tbe question as to whether or not this system could
ho successfully introduced into ths United
.stutaas, it must be admitted that It bas
worked most satisfactorily In Scandinavia.
In some recent reports mads by the governors of other province*, the testimony is
unanimous that tbe Gothenburg system has
lessened drunkenness and been beneficial to
the communes adopting it In Norway it
has been legally adopted, and some time ago
its principles were adopted in ths greater
number of such communes as had the right
to do so. A committee of the British house
of lords, appointed to inquire into the mean,
of preventing the increase of intemperance,
after examining various proposals, ex-
presse.l themselves in favor of this system
and recommended its adoption In England*.
The Right Hon. Joseph Chamberlain, tbe
Radical leader, is also a strong and abls advocate of this system for Birmingham, and
I boliove before many yeara it will ba on ISr
trial In England.
Longevity In California.

The announcement of the death of Donna
Marie de la Guerea de Hartwell, ot Salinas
city, aged 70 years, and the mother of
twenty-one children, ten of whom survive
her death, suggests tho idea of giving your
readers an account of some of ths aged sad
prolific people of Monterey county. There
I a now living near Monterey city an ancient
lady who is ths mother ot thirty children.
A few yoar.s since there died a woman of ths
same place said to be 140 years old.
Tbere Is now living at the county hospital
iu this place a native Indian 135 yean oaf.
His hair is as white as wooL Hs wsu
sit tor hours on his blanket in the
sun busily engaged mending some oi
his garment*, muttering to himself bla
unintelligible jargon. He la quite active,
nnd rotaiim must a.f his faculties to a remark-
ablo degree. Last season a man born In ths
year 1800 assisted me on a ranch to hive a
number of swarms of boss (s would run
up to tho top of a live oak teas, crawl out on
a limb whero the bees ware, and sawing It
off, would lower it to mo, wheu I Voulii
place the hive over the boss.
Longevity does not seem to be confined to
the human species altogether In this land of
sunshine and flowers. At ths state fair,
two years since, I saw a hone 33 years old
ltd in the stock cavalcade that showsd ths
activity ot a 4-year-old colt Ths adags
that "anything soon ripe is soon rotten" doss
not seem to bold good here. Both ths animal and vegetable creation mature at a
wonderfully early period. Heifer,

tenacity of life confined to ths animal king.
dom. In hosing weeds, If one adheres to
the soil by the least fibrous root it will livs
and thrive. If a cutting of ssost any tree
or shrub be made and stuck into ths moist
■oil, it will grow. Notwithstanding tha
eight months of dry weather last season,
with only a few light showsn during ths
winter, followed by nearly six months ot
dry westher this year, all planted and cultivated crops look green and flourishing.
This is owing to the large amount of
humidity in tho air.

The Evening Prevaricator last night
got down to his natural level and just reveled in malicious personal abuse and
Billingsgate worthy of a fisher woman. He
can have a clear Meld in this respect as far as we arc concerned. If he
cannot honorably conduct a discussion,
started by US for the benefit of the city of
Nanniino, we will have none of il.
Tux   Free   Press says,  referring to the j
editor   of   the CoUKIEH,  "hut with  the;
craftiness of au  Indian,  turns upon  his J
trail."    We were nol aware  hefore that!
it constituted craftiness in an  Indian  to
"turn upon Ins trail."   However, as thei
editor of the F. P. has the reputation of
being well versed in the habits and  customs of the   Indian,   ive  suppose  he is
correct.
To prove what a perverternf the truth,
not to say wilful and malicious falsifier,

donate $50 in current coin of the realm
to the hospital Ii he will point out to us
in the Courier of yesterday morning
where the following sentence occurs,
which he pretend to quote : "The people
of Nanaimo must hold out a welcoming
hand to the stranger.'' Here ia a chance
fer him to do a noble act of charity and
at the some time strengthen his already
wavering reputation for honorable treatment of his contemporaries.

LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.
Editor Couribb:—What is the matter
with the editor ofthe Free Press? Is he
isOing orT his nut, or what? 1 see by his
remarks on Friday that he is not satis-
lied because the Courier has drawn the
attention of the public to the fact that
the Northfield coal should be shipped at
Nanaimo instead of at Departure Hay. I
think tlie smoke ou his mountain home
is too much for him. He has not-jot the
sand to ventilate anything for the benefit
of the city, and when anyone else docs
he tries to throw cold water on it, because
it alid not emanate from his own large
brain. I am satisfied if yon still continue
to try and advance the interests of the I
city your paper will succeed- as tlie
course you have pursued has shown to j
"the public that you are not silling on the
fence, ready tn "flop over to the highest
bidder.
Again, in his Saturday's issue he tries
to explain something, but he does not
know what. It is evidently too much for
him. First he says he is in favor of it,
and then he very near says he is uot, for
there he is again afraid he will offend
someone; then be rambles on and very
near says he is in favor of some project,but
still on the fence. He dare not nay what
bethinks. Poor old man 1 He had better
wait until the smoke clears away from
the mountain, and then he might see his
way clear to run his paper in the interests
ol the city of Naaaimo.       Yours,
An Ol ii-TiMKii.

A Ul.ylay Ol Writ. In "-'rem .lsusrr-
iinonilfnl   ICoy. rani's Hsusr.
The front door of Superintendent Hoy-
craft's dwelling house on Courtenay
street presented a rather peev'iar sight
yesterday afternoon, legal papers fluttering all over it, giving it a formidable
appearance. The papers were writs, and
the substance of them was as follows:—
The first was a polite note stating that
thc prov'icial superintendent owed to
Mr. Ar*,/le the premium of a promissory
note amount'*]** to *400 and interest
tacked on, making it another *v!3, which
amount, under the present circumstances
not being exactly OSSC'ed, Mr. Argyle
had thought lit to issue a writ for.
Mr. C E. Pooler is solicitor for the plaintiff. Messrs. Drake, Jackson A Holm-
cken,the solicitors for .McLean A Stewart,
are next with a writ for $1110 for clothing
supplied to Mr. Roycraft at varioiiB peii-
ods since March last. The third paper
from the same solicitor attested tl at the
Hudson's Bay Co. had supp':ed h'm with
goods to the value of $180.70, and that
the firm wanted their money for the
same. The articles enumerated in the
bill attached li tbe w.it Included several boxes of cigars end a case of w'ue.
In addition to these Andrew A. Aaronson applied for the payment of $257 for
goods supplied and money lent. The ac
count included clothes, a gold seal, a sapphire ring, diamond p;n, gold coin, menr-
chniuii pipe, gold repenting watch, and
hats. The ' d'amond" pin is valued at
$a!.7o. Thc lust of the writs thit adorn
the door is for a bill of $475 owed to Mr.
Joshua Davies for monev advanced and
commission upon the sale of household
fe liture.
Tbe house i. Mel', with blinds down
and dust beg'nnlng to appear about the
windows, presents a rather dismal sight,

"O, wbaur is my Wullie gane?" Alto-

Chinese bridal costume, which was plen-1
lifully ornamented with jewellery. When

A*.iiiii. Tribe-* Whose Land is Almost u
Sealed Boole to tie White Man—Sahara
Liinds — South America — The Polar
Ite-jloiis
It is likely tbat within tbe next twenty or
thirty- years ull tbe areas tbnt are still wholly
-unknown, except perhaps within the polar
circles, will have yielded their secrets to
daring explorers. Inhospitable tribes now
rear more barriers than nature does to retard
the progress oi discovery. \VUtto geographers
have for years disputed over the eonundruni
r^f whether tho great Sanoo river of Thibet is
thu headquarters of tho Brahmaputra or of
■* tho Irrawadi rivers, the flaroe little Misnml
tribo bas guarded tbe secret, killed tho adventurers who dared to intrude among their
mountains and left tho geographers to
Wrangle. It was only last year tbat their
country was crossed at last, and it is now
evident that the Brahmaputra ia a thousand
miles longer than somo authorities admitted.
A littlo northeast of Jndia Ut Kiillristun,
whoso lovely vulleys are densely peopled by
tribes that are physically among the handsomest of Asiatics. Their country is almost
a sealed book to us, for only one whito man,
Mr. McNair, has succeeded in crossing their
threshold. About four years ago, staining
liis skin with walnut juloe and in theguiieof
an Indian doctor, he pushed some way iuto
tho country until the suspicious natives becamo so inquisitive that bo thought it prudent to retreat. No scientific traveler haa
ever roucbed Lhasa, the capital of Thibet
and tho Home of the Uuddhists, or penetrated far into southern Thibet, though many
notable attempts bavo been made. Recently
Prejevalsky bas tried twice in vain to reach
Lhasa, and last year Mr. MeCauley, after
elaborate preparations and after bo had
spent ix year in getting tho permission of tho
Chinese and Thibetan authorities to visit
Lhasa, was finally turned back before ho had
crossed the frontier. The only reason that
the Bouthern half of Thibet and a largo part
of Napaul and tho Himalayas are uot a whito
Bpace or a mere jumble ou our maps, is that
native Indians have been trained to the
work of exploration by the Indian survey
and sent north to travel as mendicants or
morchants. They can rarely 00117 with
them scientific instruments larger than a
compass, and their work, though vory valuable, is far from being thorough and satisfactory. Bo fearful is the Indian survey
that tho real business of ita native explorers
will bo discovered that their own friends do
uot knotv whero they ure sent, aud their
names uro not connected with their explorations until after they havo retired from active service.
Similar impedimenta embarrass tho traveler in all parts of Mohammedan Africa,
Grandly as Ijarth. Kohlfs, Nachtigal, Lcrna
and a half dozen others huve served tho
causo of geography in the Sahara desert, our
knowledge of that mountainous and elevated
region is anything but thorough and adequate. Ho truly takes his Ufe in his hand
who ventures among the Tuaregs and other
ilerco nomads of the Sahara. Unless ho can
talk Arabic like a native, and cau skillfully
assume the guise of a Mohnnmiedajj, he is almost certain to meet tho fate of Mile. Tmna
and Lieut, l'alat. Dr. Krause, wishing to
enroll his name among tho half dozen white
men who have reached Timbuctoo, attempted
t<> attain the town from the south. When
within. 10ft miles of his goal ho was stopped
und bluntly informed that no might go on
to tho holy city if ho would become a Mo-
'•''""medal.. Moro scrupulous than somo
other oxpB>**-*^ha declined to bocome a disciple of tho Propfo-v. ,„,d wa8 therefore compelled to turn back.
Tho great basin of alio Congo i,,is been
more prolific of geographical BurprJseswui,,
in tho past five years thun any other part of
tho world in this century. And yet the work
thero has only begun. In this vast area
thero has beon very littlo exploration except
along tho water courses, and even tho river
banks havo for tho most part received only
a cursory and preliminary survey. Wiss-
mann is now crossing the continent from
sea to soa, acroBS tho southern part of the
Congo basin; Kund and Tappenbeck have
made a short journey overland from river
to river, but generally speaking the vast
regions between tho rivers are still almost
wholly unknown.
It is not difficult to see one good reason
why South America has been comparatively
neglected by travelers, whilo, on the other
hand, Africa has been running over with
them. Neither commerce, science, nor missionary ardor have seen in South America
thc samo promise of rich rewards l*hat have
allured thorn to the uplands of inner Africa.
Still such journeys aa Dr. Von Steinen and
his comrades recently mado on the great
Xiugu tributary of tho Amazon, when they
discovered curious and wholly unknown
tribes and othor things of much interest,
show that these regions aro a fine field for tho
explorer.
Tho Brazilians know less of a largo part of
thoir empire than thoy might easily learn of
Nova Zombla, and in Ecuador aud some
other states Whyinper and other travelers
say that the government maps are hopelessly
inaccurate. Tho best and most interesting
explorations in South America aro now carried ou by the Argentine Republic. Among
their pampas and cordilloras, in tho valleys
of Patagonia and on tho grassy plains of
Terra del Puego, these researches, uow in
full progress, have been prolific of geographical sensation. Good, honest exploration upsets hundreds of theories and fanciful stories
that have come to be accepted facts.
It is in tho lofty regions of inner Asia that
tbo greatest works of discovery still remain
to bo achieved. The Russian explorers are
among tho best trained and most competent
travelers in the world, and their government
is today doing far more than any othor nation to promote geographical discoveries.
The Antarctic regions will probably bo the
next Held of polar inquiry, and somo steps
to this ond have lieen taken both in Ureal
Britain and Australia. As the south polar
region is not, liko tho Arctic zoue, crowded
with islands and archipelagoes, it is of much
moro importance in tho study of ocean -.-ur-
rents.

[Loudon News.]
Tho round oi: organ and piano-forte recitals which has continued without, cessation
daring tho past month in tho music-room
was broken tho other day by tho court band of
the king of Siani, who, by that monarch's
ipeciul permission, have visited tho western
world to fulfill an engagement at the Inventions exhibition. This was their first appearance. Un the opening of the doors
there was a tremendous rush of people,
speedily Oiling tbo room to overflowing.
The Siamese musician-, liko most of their
fellow-country men abroad, woar ordinary
European costume. For this Bpecial occasion their uniform was a blu3 cap
with patent leather peak, a bluo forage
jacket with braes buttons, a sash of gold,
baggy brooches of free-and-easy cut, white
stockings, and shoes. The hose is a courtly
token, but is nevertheless for concert purposes a superfluous article, seeing that the
wearers squat upon the floor during their
performances, with their legs tucked comfortably and completely under them.
Tho Instruments accordingly lie low. being, in point of fact, w.iat, without offense,
might be termed "fl loreris" The audience
gazod stolidly at their instruments upon
tho platform for a quarter of au hour before
tho business begaa Frequenters of tha exhibition would reoogni-M them as counterparts of the artistically-finished oxhibits in
the Slam section outside, under its awning
of white and red stripes, with tho white elo-
phaut stamped around the border. At each
end stood a tun-bellied drum, richly' inlaid
with mother-of-poal, but these wero for
ornament rathor than uso. It was uot until
the concert bogau that a clear idea could be
formed of the sovoral objects handled by the
seventeen performers from tho court of
Siam. Then what had appeared at a distance to bo straight whito rulers turnod out
to be Siamese Ilutos. The long wooden
affairs, rudely fashioned like a guitar,
standing on short legs, and studded along
the backbono with a dozen bridges, becamo a
throe-stringed Instrument, twanged with a
bit of wood held in tho musician's right
hand. The boat-shup?d thing proved to bo a
ylelder of melodious sounds when the transverse strips of wood woro struck by the
hammers of the performer. Even the vessels that woro not unlike spittoons musically
responded to a knock. Although tho mother-
of-pearl drums woro not used, liberal substitutes wore provided. There were two or
throe varieties of modest and imperfect
stringed Instruments, and the three pipes
are blown at tho ond, though in other respects thoy aro of tho lluto family.
Tho stock music of tho court band is,
however, produced ou the musical glasses
principle, tho mediums being either hard
wood or metal. Tho principal Instrument!
aro exquisitely ornaiUQnted and inlaid.
The Siamese ambassador and lady arrived
in time to hear the opening piooe, described upon tho programme as "The Malays
of Lobhabury." Wo havo no intimate
knowledge of Lobhabury, but the music
would suggest that tho good people who take
their namo therefrom wero or are a not unpleasant combination of amiability and
caprice, energy and calmness. A few minutes will elapse before tho unaccustomed
listener get-1 fairly into tho swing of the
Siamese style, but very soon it is apparent
that tho performers must bo ranked mountains higher than tho Chinese sound-torturers of last year. Spite of faint squeaks
and wheezes at odd moments, spite 0.
wails ani whines, twiddles and twirls, and
combinations that would puzzle a select
committee on the musical pitch, the
Siamese music is on the whole pleasing as
woll as interesting. Sometimes it is sweet.
It is always quaint, and olovorly rendered.
Tho intelligent, imperturbable littlo people
squatting on tho carpot know their business
woll, and thoir manners and ability made
them public favorites at onco.
It should bo remembered that while as a
poople the Siamese are passionately fond of
music thoy havo no notation, and somo of
tho piocos hoard the othor day are said tc
have boon handed down by ear from father
to son for a couple of centuries, The performers are thoreforo not bothered with tha
orchestral scores. The conductor, in lieu of
baton, wields a couple of miniature symbols,
and sits fn the center in a convenient position for lighting a match if any of the geai
requires rofasteniug with melted wax. Ht1
also gives the signal for a start. His first
man sits in the center of the front row, and
invariably leads oft with a few strokes upon
his musical bars. The others plunge in
vigorously, but in good order, and play in
decont time and reasonable tune. Barbaric
horrors there aro none, nor caterwaulings,
nor hideous groans and shrieks, such aa tho
Flowery-landers produced in our midst at
the previous exhibition. The music has at
times just a suspicion of jig, reel, and strathspey about it, and the gentle bag-plpey effect is strengthened by the abrupt termination of tbo pieces. Some time could be
traced in thorn all, and it must bo said that
it was often repeated. After an hour of the
concert tho music would nevertheless become somewhat monotonous to the masses.
The names of the pieces performed, rendered into English, were "The Brother,"
"Sweet Melody," "Danco of tho Cambodian-?
of Potisat" (with takhay solo), "The Sorrow
Parting," "Tho Pegu Affliction," aud the
Siamese national anthem; but the music
was uot so varied as tho subjects. The
dance which introduced the takhay (the
many-bridged, three-stringed instrument m
short logs screwed into the back), was enthusiastically encored, and the musicians
were indeed well applauded throughout,
though from the unbroken gravity of their
domeanor thoy might not have understood
the compliments paid. They had to respond
to tho encore to "God Save the Queen," rendered by them curiously, but, considering
the nature of tho Instrument-), cleverly. The
best mnn U apparently tho performer 011

Advice to invalids—If you wish to obtain
quiet refreshing sleep, free from headache,
relief from pain and anguish, to calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate thc circulating systems ofthe body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Staff}, to which
he gave the name of CHLORODYNE, und
which is admitted by the profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE iB the best remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhcea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasns.
CHLORODYNE is the only palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Mcninqitis, He: , Sec,
From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:-—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon thc wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J,.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from theii salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Cullis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrha.*,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a*.. general Sedative, that have oeturred
umL'our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diurrhcea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, We
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used '.ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro]
fession and the public, as we »re ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnan.cellor Sir \V.

was, undoubtedly, the inventor of Chlorodyne; that the story of the defendant, Fret.

with the Provincial Government on Friday seems to have been a very successful
one, Irom a Government standpoint. Comox has Buffered long and patiently, and
now if the Government should but do
justice to the district it should have its
just moiety of praise.

The teachers and members of lhe Wellington Presbyterian Sunday School held
a picnic at Somenos yesterday. The
party, comprising about 00 persons, occupied one whole car and appeared prepared to make the most of the day's outing. They returned by the evening train
and as seen while passing through this
city had evidently enjoyed the excursion
immensely.

It is stated that since the abandonment
by the United States inspector of Osoyoos
lake, a place not far distant from Ruby
City, and on the boundary line of the
United States and British Columbia, a
large number of Chinese have crossed into Uncle Sam's territory from the
British Columbia side. II is said that at
least 1010 have entered at the point
named, and that it is the favorite place
for moving opium into the United States
without paying duty.

street playing a lively quickstep and on
arriving at the Fire Hall grouped themselves near the firemen, wbo were in full
costume and were photographed,together
with the engine, by Mr. Sampson. Afler
which the lire company headed bv the
band marched to the grounds.
Mr. Raper's two little boys attired as
firemen look part in the procession
and attracted much attention.
The picnic ground was handsomely
decorated with various Hags conspicuous
among which were I'nion Jacks anal
(be Stars and Stripes. In the earlier
part of the afternoon there was a noticeable absence oi the fair sex, but towards
about 4 o'clock the enclosure looked quite
gay with handsome dresses, the youth
anal beauty of Nauaimo seemed determined thai the firemen should not lack a
sufficiency of partners during the dance
iu the evening.
After very lillle delay the races were ,

MATCH  HACK.
The Firemen's Consolation Race led to
a little dispute as to whether a fair start
had been given and the winner, C. Van
Houten, offered to run A. McGregor, who
came in second for $10 and give him
three yards start. The offer was accepted
and a small party adjourned to the Comox road where the match was run Off,
VanHoitten catching the tape first with
his hand but the race was given to McGregor aB he touched the line first with
his chest.
The blindfold race was the cause of
much merriment, several starting and
nearly all striking out in different direc-
tionson the word "go" heing given.some
stumbling over peaceful lookers-on who
took it in a most good humored manner
and one man fell so jollg that he rolled
on the ground while tbe blind man stood
on him.
The obstacle race was another very
auiuBing part of the afternoon's performance, owing principally to the nature of
the obstacles whicli only allowed one
competitor to pass through at a time.
The Nanaimo Junior Brass Band
earned well merited praise for their playing. Thc superior execution of the Juniors was a matter of comment all over
the field and tbey played very frequently
during the afternoon much to the delight
of those nssembled to view the sports.
A great number of children were pres-1
ent and the. large swing was never with-
out several oa-ctipants.
At aboul. 4:30 p. m. dancing com-:
menced, in a desultory fashion, on the j
large platform, only a few couples caring
to brave the heat of the sun at thut hour,
Imt others could not allow a deliciously j
dreamy waltz to pass without taking a
few turns.

The Neics-Advertiicr is authority (or
the statement that while digging a well
on the property of Mr. J. Miller, on the
Westminster road yesterday afternoon
some Chinamen struck a coal seam. The
land on which the find was made in
situated about three miles i'rom the city
and is leased to the Chinamen by Mr.
Miller for farming purposes. The seam
of coal was struck at a depth ol'twenty
feet, and the seam itself is ;1;._. feet thick".
The Chinamen notified Mr. Miller of their
discovery and be made some personal investigations, lie tested a piece of the
coal and found that it burned well. Last
evening Dr. Bredemeyer was shown a
sample of the coal and said that it was
lignite anal that the indications were
good. The discovery of Ihis scam, he
said, bore out hia oft-repeated contention
that Vancouver was situated on n coal
bed, which was simply a continuation of
the Vancouver Island deposits.
