week.    If we etui get iflOll to $160 extra a

will help to build slreels.
Aid. Abrams—Let tbein have the Hall
under the distinct understanding that it
is not used on Monday night.
The Mayor—There is nothing said
about Sunday. They are making money
selling tickets.
Aid. Webb said that some parlies
wished to obtain the Hall on Sunday
night for the purposes of lecturing.
The Mayor thought the city was not
making very much out of tbe Salvation
Army, as tlie Hall wits left in a very
dirty state.
Aid. Mahrer—It is a nuisance. They
are fanatics who parade on the streets.
We ought to discourage them. God
does not want a drum or two beaten
in his name. I caught u horse that was
frightened by their racket the other day.
A great ileal of damage might have ensued. It is encouraging a lot of lazy
loafers.
Aid. Baker seconded Alderman Webb's
{notion.
Aid. Nightingale said they take np a
collection here to go to Vancouver or on
some other steaniboating excursion, and
so take the money out of the town. They
bave.to raise the money here to return
as there is no nionev in Vancouver.
Aid. Hilbert thought that Aid. Nightingale had turned his coat, as before he
was rather in favor of (he army. People
who were at the last ball said the Moor
was ruined.

DEFERRED COMMUNICATION.
A letter was read from the Hritish Columbia Tanning Company, saying they
wished to purchase a piece of land situated between the lot belonging to Aid,
Abrams antl one the propertv of Haslem
and Lees, for the purpose of erecting a
tannery, etc.
Aid. Nightingale—There ian portion of
that lot title land, and the company can
only build on suffrage. We ought to have
legal advice before proceeding in the
matter. It would be a great help to Mill
street, and 1 would do all in my power to
help the city and this enterprise will
bring men and money to tlie lown.
Aid. Hilbert thought It would be a good
idea to exchange with Aid. Abrams for
that piece ot his land now occupied by
the street.
Aid. Nightingale said here is plenty of
room for the street, why mislead the
Council ?
Aid. Abrams—Mr. Heyland said my
barn does net encroach on the street.
Aid. Nightingale—According to that
Mr. Heyland must have told you one
thing and me another.
The Mayor said this was nothing to do
with the "question on hand, (letting
legal advice was a gootl idea.'
Aid. Mahrer—Before we say anything
about the matter let us get legal advice.
Aid. Baker—The question is are we in
a position to sell. We can lease it. If
Mr. Heyland tells one man one thing and
one another it is very strange. Tho best
thing we can do is to get legal advice.
Aid. Abrams thought that they were
misunderstanding what he said about
Mr. Heyland. He didn't want him misrepresented.
Aid. Webb's motion to gel legal advice carried.
TI1H BTBKKT COMMIT! SK'B IlEI'OltT.

The report was received and filed.
Aid. Mahrer said the Committee appointed last week to look into the matter

motion wns carried.
Aid. linker—What has been done in
the matter ot Brodie's sidewalk?
Aid. Nightingale—Nothing. I saw
Aid. Baker on the subject in the early
part of this week anil did not see him
afterwards. I did not want to settle the
matter on my own responsibility, as he
gets mad sometimes, and ho is in u good
humor now.
Aid. Webb said the Esplanade was in
a verv bad state.
Aid. Nightingale—I know it is, and
also that it is ono of the worst streets in
the city. The Corporation men can't be
in every place at once. Aid. Mahrer has
already broken two or three horses' legs
on Mill Street and we are trying to fix it
so that he won't break nnv in the future.
The meeting tben adjourned.

they could be better waited upon.
Robins ns Presidenl
The motion was carried new. eon,
Alderman Mahrer proposed A. Haslem
as Vice-President.
Motion carried.
J. Hilbert proposed M. Wolfe as Secretary.   Motion ca-iricd.
Tbe Chairman—The next business
in order is to eleet the Councillors. I
might state at this Btage of the proceedings
the position the officers will occupy.
They have all to say in the affairs of the
Board, the other members not having
even the privilege of milking a suggest inn.
Everyone should be aware of this fact,
It is optional whether we elert a Board of
Arbitrators.
John Hilbert—ls it not necessary lo
elect a treasurer.
Secretary Wolfe—The Secretary at
Vancouver nets as Treasurer. They have
money out at interest.
J. Hilhert then proposed Mr, Wolfe
for Treasurer.  Motion carried.
The Chairman at this stage wished to
vacate the chair and for President Robins to take it.
President Robins said that taking the
Chair at meetings was the only drawback
be could see to his occupying the post of
President. He was under the impression that he was only elected to that
position out of deference to the company
lie represented which bad so large an interest in the town, lie wished the vice-
President to continue to occupy the
chair.
The following Councillors were next
elected. BGlaholm, .1 11 Pleace Aid.
Abrams, E Pimbury, .1 Mahrer, J Hilhert, T Hirst, A Bullock.
The vice-President said tlie next business to consider was the election oi a
Board of Arbitrators.  This was optional.
J. Hilbert though! it would be a good
idea to do so.
The following Board of Arbitrators was
accordingly elected.

Perkins, W. K. Leighton, I). Smith, .1.

The Vice-President said that a time for
meeting could not well be appointed, us
legally the President nnd vice-President
had lo be sworn in before tile Mayor or a
Justice of the Peace.
Mr, Mayer suggested that they be
sworn in there and Ihen as there was a
J. P. in the room.
The Secretary then read clause 11 in
regard to membership.
The question was asked bow will money
be raised lo defray expenses.
Vice-President—Money 'ib raised by
monthly subscription at Vancouver and
afterwards tho new member's fees.
Tho President and Vice-President were
then sworn in before 1'. Smith, .1. P.
The vice-I'residenl then explained the
benefits to be derived from a Board of
Trade in u city.
J. II. Pleace then moved it vote of
thanks to the Secretary for the able-
manner in which he had  forwarded  the
views of the citizens iii the matter of organising a Board of Trade. Vote of
thanks passed unanimously.
In response, Mr. Wolfe said be thankud
thom heartily for their vote of thinks.
He onlv ditl his duty antl was glad lo see
Nanainio so well represented to-night
and hoped lo see every one Like an interest in the matter. Mr. Gordon assisted
him materially in placing the matter before the Secretary of state. Unfortunately there was some error in
in the first set of papers. He also thanked them for electing him secretary and
he would endeavor to do his duty.
.1. Hilbert said that before adjourning
he thought the Cily Council should be
asked for   the   use   of a room   iu   the
Council Chamber and he would move to
that cll'eet.

better be left in abeyance until it was
known whether the City Council would

him to Ihe vice chair and  tin-  meeting

and its arrival ill the central dome of the

salute from tho artillery. Premier Tirard
delivered an address of welcome to all
present, lie declared that the magnitude of the exhibition exceeded the expectation of the government. In conclusion, the Premier extended to ail
strangers a greeting, and said republican
France would show herself hospitablo
and generous, treating them not as rivals
inspiring jealousy, but as workers laboring for the buppmesso! humanity. President Carnot followed .Minister Tirard. In
his remarks he referred to the "undaunted energy of France which ha-l arisen
from the most severe trials to fresh industrial triumphs." After tlie exhibition

Ambassador to France, was really desirous of rema'tiing in Paris to witness the
opening of the exposition and plainly intimated it to the Foreign Office. The

Lordship should withdraw front tbe
French capital, at the sanie timo informing Lord Salisbury that it would never
do for a minister ofa royal house to participate or ever countenance a ceremony
designed b> commeml rate thsovertbrow
of royalty. The Tory newspapers adopt
a similar view in their comments upon
the opening oi the exhibition. They
profess to fnfgice revolutionists for their
rebellious act but do not condone their
excesses, nor do they admit the benefits
ol tlie republican form of government,
which is the ultimate result oi that

CIGARETTE s.iltiKI\<;.
This paper has frequently  referred  lo
the evils of cigarette smoking which are
everywhere observable and unfortunately
amoug Ihe young.    Boysot tender years
are to he seen dailv inhaling Iln'   poison-
ous fumes of tin' deadly cigarette, and
the eonseqiie f BUeh youthful  indulgence is only too apparent. The Victoria
Timet, in a late issm-. makes the following   pertinent remarks concerning the
cigarette  evil.   It   says:    ''There Ifl a
good deal of talk going the rounds on tlie
evils of cigarette smoking,  and   unquestionably there are grounds for ii.   Tobacco iu any form is Injurious to youth,
and is especially deleterious when used
in the form of  cheap cigarettes.   The
fault,  however,   does  nut   lie  with   the
cigarette vender,  but  rather  with  the
parent of the juvenile  purchaser,    If a
bit of personal reminiscence, for the sake
of illustrating our point, is allowable, we
shall say that memory lakes us haek  lo
the period when we used to beg tobacco
of the hired man, pulverize il. and wrap
it   in   paper   and   smoke   il.   Too   impecunious to buy a pipe, and  unable lo
conceal it if  we bin! one, we evolved Ihe
cigarette from our brain.but unfortunately lacked the business  foresight, to take
out a patent  for  il.    Hut our  inventive
genius alas, was not appreciated in the
domestic   circle.   The odor  of   tobacco
smoke so attached  itself to our person
that the paternal relative got ou  to  it,
and after a brief inquisition with a view to
extracting an   oral  confession   of guilt
a    large    leathern   strap    was   vigorously   manipulated   across  our   back.
Thbj thrashing, coupled with the remark
of the 'governor,' that no boy of bis should
use tobacco before he way twenty-one, if
strappings would prevent it, reduced our
cigarette smoking to an unconsciously
low minimum, and now we are glad that
our knowledge of tobacco was very superficial until we came somewhere near niit-
turity.   Parents of the latter generation
seem   to have lost their grip on  their
children,   and  fathers ami mothers   in
their helplessness would seek the aid of
legislation  to  assist them in a purely
family affair.   As a rale it is useless to
reason with a boy  under fourteen.    He
must be thrashed into obedience and if
parents haven't the backbone lo enforce
their prerogative let them suffer the consequences.
There is no doubt if parents took hold
of this matter as thoy should, enforcing
home discipline hy a judicious combination of advice and the strap, Ihe sale of
cigarettes to boys would naturally fall off.
It is the parents which the newspapers
should lecture not the cigarette vendors.

EDITORIAL NOTES.
The following in tin extract from the
late Hon. John Briyht'H famous appeal
to Lord Palmoraton during the great
Russian war: "The Angel of Heath has
been abroad in the lantl; you may til-
most hear thelieathi); uf bin wings, There
is no one, as when the lirHl-born were
slain of old, to sprinkle with blood the
lintel and the two side-posts of our doors,
that he may spare and pass on; he takes
his victims Irom the castle of the noble,
the mansion of the wealthy, and the
cottage of the poor and the lowly, and it is
on behalf of all these classes that f make
this solemn appeal. 1 am not, nor did 1
ever pretend to be, a statesman J and
that character is so tainted ami so equivocal in our day that I am not sure that
a pure and honorable ambition would
aspire to it. I have not enjoyed for
thirty years, like those noble lords, the
honors and emoluments of office. 1 have
not set my sails to every passing' breeze.
I am a plain and simple citizen, sent here
by one of tho foremost constituencies of
the Empire, representing feebly, perhaps
but honestly, 1 dare aver, the opinions
of very many, and the true Interests of
all who have sent me here. Let It nol
be Mild that I um alone in my condemnation of this war, and of this Incapabl
and guilty Administration, And even if
I were alone, if mine were a solitary
voice, raised amid Ihe din of arms and
thc clamour of a venal press, I should
have the consolation I have to-night—
and which I trust will he mine to the last
moment of my existence—the priceless
consolation thnt no word of mine has
ever tended to promote the squandering
of my country's treasure or the spilling
of one single drop of my country's blood.
The Toronto Week commenting upon
tbe "hurrying and   scurrying"   at   the
close of each  session of  the   Dominion
Parliament,   Bays:   " We had supposed
that the duty of a deliberative Assembly
was to deliberate, nntl that of a Legislature was to legislate, and that the duties
imposed hy the people upon their representatives implied  that whatever  time
was necessary for the purpose should  be
taken.   The proper time to end the session would seem to be when its work was
properly done. ,i.But, instead of the limit
being fixed by the needs of legislation, it
seems to lie becoming the fashion  to fix
the time limit arbitrarily or  at convenience and let the legislation govern itself
aiccordingly.   The consequence   is  that
the last two or three weeks of every session nre marked by a restlessness Which
must lie anything bnt favorable to legislative calmness.   *   *   *   *   If the fact

An   Interesting  Poker  Story with  an Abrupt End.
Thoy were sitting In a hotel corridor, and
an old man, who spoke In an Intense but deliberate manner, was telling of a great poker
gamo. As the story went on his listeners
drew their chairs closer around tbo narrator.
Every man was leaning forward with an
eager glitter In his eye. Half smoked cigars
fell unnoticed to tbe floor. There was scarcely
a movement In the littlo group.
The old man was evidently a master at
story telling. He bad been, too, If one might
judge by his lively description of the game
which he was describing, an expert player
himself. He began with the beginning of the
jackpot, went carefully over tho deal, the
draw and the preliminary betting. And
when he got to tbo flrst Let of the opener
there was a breathless silence around him,
save for his quiet, measured tones, as ho told
of the game. The game, as he described It,
bad beon played in a train and he had been a
witness of It
"John," ho said, tilting bis chair back a
little and then causing it to sway -ritb a
rhythinio motion of his body, "bet $20.
The man next to him ran his cards over completely and raised him $50. The next man
saw the raise. John raised $100 again. The
next man again ran his curds over carefully,
placed a crisp $100 noto on tbe table, hesitated a moment and then, adding another one
to It, pushed tbem both into tbe pot without
a word. The third man laid down bis cards,
leaving John to bet next. He saw the raise
and placed $1,000 beside it, whistling softly
to himself. His opponent laid down his
cards and pulled a long pooketbook from his
pocket He took out a roll of bills and
counted them over very de.libora.ely. Then
he picked up his cards and ran them over
again. His face was pale, but calm. He
said nothing."
.There was an Intense strain in the absorbed
silence of the group now. Tho man drew a
long breath. Another moved uneasily in
his chair, but no one said a word.
"Tbe man counted out $1,000," continued
the narrator, "thou he counted out another
thousand, and another and another until five
piles lay before him. John looked at him a
moment and went down Into bis pocket. The
hands of both tho players were trembling
slightly, but both looked confident"
One of the listeners now tapped his foot
impatiently on the floor.
"The man slowly pushed the fivo rolls to
the oenter of the table," be went on. "John's
eyebrows camo together. He took his wallet
and placed it beside the bills."
A flutter ran through tbe group, followed
by a sudden bush. The narrator stopped In
his story, and bringing his ohair down to the
floor, reached for a match. He struck it,
waited for the sulphur to burn out, and relighted his cigar. For a moment he pulled
•way silently. "And then?" said one of his
hearers nervously.
"Oh, then tbe train stopped at my station
and I had to get off."—New York Tribune.

One of the streets nf Florence is known as
Via del Mortl,'tho street of tho dead Many
years ago a beautiful Italian princess was
fought in marriage by two nobles, Prlnco
Goudi and Count Aldobrundi, whose palaces
stand at either end of the short and narrow
itreet. The prince was successful in his suit,
jut in less than a year the beautiful young
woman died, and her body was placed in tho
crypt beneath tho cathedral, the coffin and
tho iron door of tho vault being left open, as
is still tlie custom in Tuscany, so that if tho
person thought dead comes to life he may escape being buried alive. In tho middlo of
the night after thu funeral Princo f-oudl was
startled by a knock ut tho outer door. Tho
porter opened the door and a whito figure
groped its way in.
Tho porter fell in a swoon, and tho prince
rushed to a clinpol In tho palaco and fell
praying before tho altar, beseeching protection against his dead wife's ghost. For days
all Florence, rang with tho story of how
Princo Ooudi was hiiiinteii by his wifo's ghost,
and Iho excitement gradually died away.
When the porter swooned and tho prince
fled toblsaltar, the white figuro slipped out
of tho houso und went to that of her old
suitor, Count Aldobruudl. Thero she knocked
feebly, but tho porter wus asleep, and tho
master of tho house came to open the door.
Tho princess fell at his feet, and ho lifted
her up aud called upon tho women of his
household to coi'O for her. After a week hud
passed, no one knowing the facts, thu count
applied to tho patriarch of tho cathedral,
and asked: "Holy father, if a woman is de
dared dead and receives the sacred office ol
the church, returns to lifo, is repulsed by hor
husband, ls but received and taken cure of
by a friend of her living days, who may
claim her!"
Tho vcnerablo priest said tho question was
so weighty that tho popo must answer it, and
ho replied that tho ono who had rescued her
could claim her. It was soon announced that
tho Count Aldobrandl would wed a noble lady
long a stranger in Fierenzc, and he requested
his friend Croudi to glvo away the bride, hor
parents not being preseut. At the appointed
day, before the altar of a chapel in tho
duomo, the marriage took place. The question was asked: "Who gives this woman to
bo the wife of this man!" Princo Goudi
stopped forward, but not until he bad taken
her hand did ho know that ho was bestowing
his own bride upon another. But his knowledge came too late. For years Count Aldo-
brandi and his wife lived happily together,
and at this late day a descendant of Prince
Goudi tells the story as a historical fact. -

The Day tar Doctors.
"Which do you supp-us la tlio busiest day
In tbe week for a physician. I mean by that
the day on which one gets the most now
cases!" asked a dlsclplo of JEsculnpIus of a
visitor yesterday afternoon while both were
sitting in the doctor's cosy little oflice on the
south side.
"I don't know," was tho reply, "but 1
thought the doctors' business was very
uncertain; In fact I never heard that people
are more apt to become sick on ono day in the
week than on another."
"Well, then, listen to mo, and I will glvo
you the benefit of tho experlonco which I
have had during tho last thirty years. It
bos been tbe result of my observation that
the largest number of people tako sick on a
Monday. Not because It Is a particularly unlucky day, nor bocauso that day Is an enomy
to human health and lifo, but for this reason:
Of course you know that ou Sunday tho regular routlno kind of existence of overy day
lifo receives a change. Tho man who usually goes down town to his oflice stays at
homo on that day; tho woi-ktngmnn nnd laborer, who havo been busily occupied during
tho week cither nt tlio mill, glass houso or
other places, do not, as a rule, work either.
Now tho moro Interruption of the muscular
movement would probably not have any bad
effect upon anybody wero it not for ono
thing, tho chaugo of diet.
"The loving, thoughtful housowife, who
knows that Sunday is tho only day on which
sho cau havo all thoso that are dearest to her
around tho dinner table, always exerts her
culinary abilities more than usual, and she
tries to make something out of tho common
—something nicer nnd bettor to put before
them to eat. Tbo consequence is that she
makes her cookery richer, and she throws in
a few knlckknacks hero nnd there that taste
very well, but as a rule thoso things play
havoc with a person's digestion, especially
when the stomach is not used to tbem.
"Now, that is the whole secret It ls a
well known fact that most diseases arise from
a disorder of the digcslivo orgaus, and hence
you havo tbo explanation why more people
do not got up on Monday morning os well
and as bright as on any other day."—Pittsburg Dispatch.
Corsets of Leather.
Quite a column has been devoted in tbo
leading French papers to tbe news that a
fresh material has been discovered for—corsets. One would not expect English influence to assert itself in so delicate a department But leather corsets are to be traced
remotely to the Influence of the insulnrs.
French ladies have taken up tennis (In a very
dainty way) and croquet They even mention cricket as within feminine possibilities,
though probably they only mean the less active gamo that Is played with hoops and mallets. However, the Parisian corsetler has
8oen bis opportunity. For such robust exercise the ordinary fabric is quite Insufficient.
A concession is to bo made to English demands. There is to be glvo and take. French
girls arc to play tennis, nnd English girls aro
to wear leather corsets. The change will
probably be greater for tho French than for
the English, though neither innovation is
much more than a revival. In the days of
Honry V—If Shakespeare is any authority—
the Parisians played a kind of tennis, and
certainly In tho days of Cromwell, If English girls did not wear kid corsets, their
fathers put on leather yerklns.—Poll Mall

The Time to Slow Up.
I heard a professional gentleman giving
utterance to a singular theory a few days ago
that wiU strike tho average reader as at least
novcL He said: "I'm now a little more than
40 years of age, and I'm hedging, I am. I'vo
done a good deal of hard work, but for a few
years from now I'm going to go it a trifle
slow, aud after I'm 60 I'll steam up again.
I'vo a theory that from 40 to GO is a period in
man's life just about ns critical as It is in the
lifo of the gentler sex. I haven't any
statistics on which I can lay my linger, but I'll
wager considerable, that if 1 did havo them
here I could show you that a great many more
men die of over work botween tho ago of 40
and 60 than between 30 and 40 or 60 and (10.
Casual observations mado upon tho death
columns of any newspaper or a study of tho
mortality list from any health office will go

The  Story of   the   Man   with   the   Permanent   Position.
Tho car was quito full, and 1 sat down in
a seat with a rather intelligent looking man
who had a newspaper in his lap He was
pleasant and ren ark,-.,! that "it looked some
Uke sn.iw,'' which was a fact. Then he
abused tho railroad company for not providing better cars and making hotter time,
and we were soon very friendly It is
always n great pleasure to meet a man ou
the train who will uhuse tho comitany with
you and act us if he eureii to make it pleasant for his fellow travellers. Wo found
fault win, the company until we were tired,
and tben he said he was going to Allegheny.
Bewasgolngto settle down there, he said,
and stop roaming around. He'd traveled a
good deal In his time, but he'd eonnluded it
didn't pay. and hereof tor Allegheny was bis
homo. Ih'M struck something there that he
thought was sure to l,e asteady tiling for several years at least, anil lie didn't see w by ho
might not us well stay right there. In fact,
he'd firmly made up his mind to it, aud no
consideration would induce him to move.
He said if I over happened in Allegheny to
hunt him up, and I promised to do so Ho
would ho glad to seo me, he explained,
any day 1 wasn't going to be out
done, ao I told him il ho was in Now
York at any time to como in and soo me.
Ho looked at tho water cooler vaguely, aud
said ho probably wouldn't be that way much,
as his duties iu Allegheny would keep him
pretty closely confined. Wo chnttod somo
nine Very pleasantly and found fault with
the coinpuny some more, when ho asked ine
cheerfully if I wouldn't please take off bis
hat and placo it iu tho rack abovo, us it was
getting rulhor warm in tho car.
I looked at him as inquiringly as 1 know
how, hut not learning anything that way, 1
asked bim gently why he didn't take off bis
own hat. iio wriggled his arms around n
Uttle, and tho newspaper slipped off his lap.
and I saw ho was wearing a pair of adjust
able steel handcuffs, lie also had Inanities
on his auklos. A man in tho seat behind rose
and took off my companion's hat and put it
in the nick, explaining as ho did so that he
was tho county sheriff, and that ho was tak

Why Wasn't He a Comot?
Young Mr. Staylato was sitting in the
dimly lighted parlor tho other night watch
Ing a 17-year-old girl trying to keep awako
long enough to soo tho morning star rise.
They talked astronomy.
"I wish I was a star," ho said, smiling at
his own poetio fancy.
"I would rather you wero a comet," sho
said, dreamily.
His heart beat tumultuously.
"And why!" he asked, tenderly, at tho
same time taking her unresisting hands in
his own. "And why!" he repeated, imperl
ously.
"Oh," sho replied, with a brooding earnest-
uess that fell on his soul like a bore foot on a
cold oilcloth, "because then you would only
come around once in every 1,600 years."
He didn't say anything until he was half
way to tbe front gate, when he turned around
and shook his fist at the house and muttered
between his teeth: "By tbo gods, it'll be a
thundering sight longer than that before 1
come around again."
But by that time the poor girl was In bed
and fast asleep.—New York world.
Her Apology.
A little girl who bad a foolish habit of
plain sneaking was taken to the sewing circlo
with her mother. On entering tbe room,
after exchanging greetings with several
matrons of her acquaintance, Miss Truthful
walked up to another lady, and in the confident tone of one who gives utterance to a
self evident fact, she said, loudly enough for
every one present to bear:
"Why, Mrs. Handley, how homely you
are I"
While the victim was biding ber ooufuslon
as best she might, and tho rest were trying
hard to conceal their amusement, the young
lady herself was hastily taken from the
room.
Once In the ball, she was dealt with somewhat severely, and made to feel the enormity
of her unintentional rudeness. Then she was
taken back to apologize.
Walking straight up to Mrs. Handley,
whllo all tha ladles hold thoir breath to listen,
she said, with trembling tones and with the
tears still upon ber cheeks:
"Mrs. Handley, I'm sorry you'ro so

Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, lanuary 5th,

Russell Street, llloomshury, London, Dear
I Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating yon upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr, J,
Collis .truwne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Ilindostan, but all over
the Kast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a Iwtter 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 thoir salet
wc fancy their sojum there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of thc extraordinary eflicacy of
Dr. Collis BfOWne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhre,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramjii,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have oeenrred
und- ' our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhiea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used \ny other fm:n of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also front a sense of duty we owe to thc pro]
fession and the public, as wc ^ re of thc
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Hrowne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OK FAITH ON TIIK PART

Japan's Progress During the Past
Twenty Tears—An Interesting Interview with  British Consul  Troup
ef Yokohama.
Mr. J. Troup. Her Britlanic Majesty's
Consul at Yokohama, arrived in this city
yesterday, having been a passenger on
the Abyssinia to Vancouver. Mr. Troup
is accompanied by bis wife and Utile
daughter, and are the guests of Mr. 1". It.
Paul, the respected principal of Ibe Na-
aimo High School.
A representative of tlio Courier called
upon Mr. Troup at the residence of Collector of Customs Smith, und "its received iiitli tin- utmost 'diality.
Mr. und Mrs. Troup in company With
Mr. ami Mrs. Smilh und Mr. Paul were
ulioiit leaving for u drive around the city
when the Cot itiki. man put in an appearance but, statin:-'the object of bis visit
Consul Troup, kindly luuinlttetl b> an interview.
Mr. Troup has been a resident ol Japan
for the pan twenty-five years and consequently has luul an experience with the
Japanese of which few men can boast. Tlie
gradual emergement of Japan trombabar-
um to a comparative state ol civilization
has been practically accomplished iu tbe
past quarter of a century, and tbe development which has taken place, not only
in the aria and manufactures but in education and everything which goes to
make a nation has been most marked.
In regard to the question of the news
gatherer ns to the educational facilities of
Japan, Mr. Troup replied that the country wns making great '.itri.U's in educational mutters. A complete system of
primary, middle and highschools was in
force, ami ul the University of Tokio a
thorough collegiate training in llio arts
and sciences could be obtained. This
University is doing good work nnd bus
two departments—literary niul scientific,
both of which ore well attended, The
people of tin' West are prone to regard
the religions of the East us idolatrous
and the people us heathens. This is
true in part, but Christianity bus made
considerable headway in Japan. The
stnte religion, says Mr. Troup, is Sliinto-
ism—a worship of tho deified powers of
nature.   The
ANCESTORS  OK THE  M1KAIH1
—the ruler of Japan—are also deified, as
as well the heroes of the countn—those
who have won a reputation as patriots, and
doers of brave deeds and who are considered worthy lo be enrolled among the cods
of the Japanese. As u matter of fact, the
state religion of Ihis people, says Mr.
Troup, amounts only to a blghtoned
patriotism among the educated, who
accept it us necessary to the welfare of their country und as something
which should be reverenced from the
associations with whicn il is surrounded.
The mass of the people are, however,
Buddhists, of which there ure thirteen or
fourteen sects. The various Christian
denominations have obtained a
considerable footing, and it is
astimated that there are nbout 80,-
U00 native Christians in Japan. Statistics, however, ure dillieult to obtain, ns
the Roman Catholic Church absolutely
refuses to make known Ibe number of ils
converts. The Russian Greek Church is
at present engaged in building a
fine cathedral in Tokio. A native
church .called the "United Church of
Christ in Japan," lias been organized,
composed largely of those of Ihe Presbyterian andOongregationalist persuasions.
The political situation in ibe land ol'
the Rising Sun is quiet. The new constitution, which is Ihe work of Japanese
statesmen alone, but which is patterned
largely after the German constitution,
was promulgated about two months ago,
and is received with general satisfaction
by the people. The lirst parliament under the new constitution will convene In
March of next year. It is composed of
two houses, an upper and lower house,
the former appointed and Ibe latter elective, and it is confidently expected that
legislation of a broad and comprehensive
character having for ils object the development of the various interests of Japan
and the throwing off of the lust vestiges
of absolutism will be the resuR.
In regard to throwing the country open
to foreigners Mr. Troup says Hint if will
probably be Borne time before such
a change in the policy of the country is
effected. It is known that a treaty lias
been arranged between Japan and the
United States, but as it has not been ratified by the United .States Semite little is
known of its provisions.
Mr. Troup is of the opinion that in
concessions will be made to the United
States which will not he accorded other
nations. There is a feeling among foreign
residents that liberal concessions should
be made, and the Chamber oil Commerce,
of Yokohama, has expressed itself to that
effect, and its action m the matter will
no doubt carry weight, and it is to be veil
sonably expected that in the near futnii
the entire country will be opened to
foreign trade and commerce.
Increased attention is being directed to
agriculture and fruit raising, and foreign
fruits have been introduced, among then
the olive in the neighborhood, of Kobe
the
SECONO  PORT OF  IMPORTANCE

The ports open to foreigners iu which
they may do business are Yokohama

Tokio the Capital, is only open to foreign
residents, who may live I here but who
may not engage in any kind of business.
TRADE  WITH   CANADA.
Tlie establishment of a Japanese  eon
Bulate at Vancouver is a direct outgrowth
of the trade which has sprung into existence between  this country   and Japan
through the inauguration of  the China
and Japan Bteamer service  between the
two countries.     The   prospect  for   the
trade between Canada and Japan is good,
and Mr. Troup is of  the opinion that a
fair  carrying   trade  can   be   built   up
although at preBent it is largely controlled liy the United States, and no doubt
will be for some time to come.   However
that separate attention is being directed
to Canada is evident from the fact that
this   country   now  occupies  a distinct
place in the customs returns, where  formerly it was grouped  with  the United
States.   The opening up of the line of
steamers was no doubt instrumental in
making this country known, and the imports resulting from the trade thus established has given Canada a commanding
position as a source from which  supplies
may be drawn.   In connection with the
trade of Japan it may he said that it is
estimated that one-third of the tea exported from  Japan  comes to Canada. This
will   indicate tlie  proportion   to which
other branches of trade might grow with
proper effort to develop commerce.
Japan Ib rapidly coming to the front in
arts and manufactures, as well ns native
products. The coal mines are being quite
extensively worked, but the eoal obtained is of an inferior quality. Railways
are being built in various parts of tbe
country and the building of these lines
has done much to open up and develop
Japan.   The   principal   work    is    done
entirely by native engineers and workmen, who have learned engineering in
Europe or America.
.Mr. Troup is a mosl pleasant gentleman and is now enjoying a well-earned
ba

there for England and will return to bis
insular duties dining tlie latter port of
next year.
To the query ol the reporter us to how
be liked Hritish Columbia, Mr. Troup replied thai be was charmed with tbe
climate and beautiful Bcenery and only
regretted thai his time wus so limited
that be could not slay longer in it.
Yesterday afternoon Mr. and Mrs.
Troup were driven around tho city accompanied bv Collector of Customs
Smith. Mrs. Smilh and Mr. E. B. Paul,
who is an old time friend and former colleague of Mr. Troup in the British legation in Japan.

The Queen's Birl-ltday.
Many of our citizens are slill under the
impression that there will be a professional sculling match al Victoria mi Ihe
•Mill. This idea is erroneous and will
lead to greal disappointment to those
who contemplated a visit to tlie capital
the Queen's Birthday. Tin' professionals wished lo receive a larger sum of
money than the Corporation of Victoria
deemed lit to give and so the arrangement was called oil'. Nanainio is making
great preparations to celebrate the royal
birthday and our citizens cannot do better than slay ul homo on thai day. We
have exceptional advantages lor holding

play ul Nanaimo on Tuesday Ibe li inst..
ami as they are well-known il is needless
lo enter into lengthy details. II will suffice to say that this will   be  o [   the
greatest attractions that has been placed
before a Nanaimo audience. Tbo prices
will be well within reasonable bounds
and we have no doubt that they will have
a crowded house. The various journals
of the country seem lo have been unable
to speak too highly of thetalenl of ihe
company.
are well aw are when an article is offered
much below its value, and hence the reason of Ihe crowd of customers to be seen
at Bullock's at all hours of the day. So
don't fail to avoid  yoursels of the oppor
