London, Aug. 3.—The Irish Tenants'
i League is proving lo be one ol the most
l successful organizations ever started in
\ Ireland as regards the number of members and tbe amount of subscription received during tlio short period since its
inception. Nearly nil persons in Ireland
and many in Knglaml, Scotland and
Wales seemed pleased to see 11 substitute
for the plan of campaign. This league,
which I'arnell has formed, und which is
being developed under proper supervision nnd held within due limits by restraint of the conscious responsibility
Hint il lias brought Parnell, Davitt and
tbe leaders of the plan into alliance and
co-operation with the Irish party, cannot
affoid the experiment of sectional movements. This feelingsubduedundBilenced,
tunny objectors to the plans nnd modes
of action. Many Nationalists bave blotted themselves out of public life rather
than appear to be in opposition to the
National League. Men cannot condemn
the means without seeming to condemn
tlie end. The plan of campaign from this
point of view was a severe strain upon
tl'.ose who entirely approved of what the
plan was formed to accomplish, but who
could not even tolerate some of the expedients by whieh it was sought to advance
that purpose. There is little danger, now
that Parnell bas assumed active supervision, that such trials to conscience shall
continue. The present shape anal character of the new organization is such thnt
it is very difficult for even the most bos-
tile moralist to put his finger on a blot.
Hut thc real value of the whole thing is
the rr-awakening that it has brought
about, bas Riven a much needed
stimulus to tbe Irish people both at
home and abroad, anil bo is making the
battle easier for Parnell and bis party.
Although home rule, as a permanent
national aspiration, does not need such
asiBStance, und although many home
rulers would prefer to wait rather than
go through an increasing agitation and
disturbance, still many leading politicians
think it will be found better in the long
run that a sharp remedy should be applied, and that the inevitable shoubl be
hastened.
Sir William Vernon Harcourt in an
interview to-day on the Tenants League,
says: "It was evident from the lirst tliat
if the Smith-Barris aggression upon Ponsonby tenants were persisted in it would
have serious consequences. It was impossible that Irish leaders should look on
while a syndicate of capitalists cleared
an estate with which it bad nn legitimate
concern and and where a peaceful treaty
between landlords and tenants was on
the point of settlement. Smith-Barris'
own tenants, who have hitherto had
friendly relations with their landlord,
begged him to leave the Ponsonhy tenants alone, Smith-Barris positively refused, and the alienations on the Pon-
sonby estate went on. lt was fully expected tliat tbe next step would be the
application of pressure to Smith-Barris
by his tenants in Cork and Tipperary.
They are as eager to proclaim und evince
their solidity of interest nnd affection
witli the Ponsonby tenants as he is with
the Ponsonby landlord. But apparently
thc Irish leaders bave not thought lhat
enough. Smith-Barris has asserted Ibe
principle tbnt every Irish landlord has
an interest in every other. Irish leaden
huve now asserted the same principle
on behalf of tenants. Smith-Barris, being obstinate and meddlesome, has in
fact unlocked 11 storm of which lie bus
probably no conception, lie thought
thai he was lighting Ponsonhy tenants
only, and that these poor and friendless
men could easily be beaten down by lile
long purses of himself nnd  his  friends.
But Smith-Barris lives in an age ol combination. Ilis purse muy be long, but ii
is not so lung us that ofthe whole people,
The   Ponsonhy  tenants  are  no    longer
isolated. Suddenly and silently tlie Irish
tenantry, and even tbe whole liish nice,
ItBVB leaped in ranks behind them, and if
Smith-Barris is io conquer the Ponsonby
tenants now he will be conqueror iit-
aleed.
The new combination has been lodged
on the theory and practice of an English
trade union, and like trade uniuus conducts strikes by making an allowance to
men who nre out of work during a struggle
with their employers. Such allowances
were always made by the national
league to evicted tenants, but the system
is to be now made more effective, and
tbere ia no doubt lhal thousands and
thousands of pounds can be had for the
support of the Ponsonby tenants, if
wanted. No one will take the farms from
which those tenants bave been evicted,
and they will be maintained by tlieir
brother tenants und Irishmen generally
until they are reinstated. But it is improbable tliat the new league will stop
tbere. It may lie taken for granteil that
aggressive landlords like Smith-Barris,
will be forced lo look at home. Supposing liis tenants refuse to pay him
rent us long as he is connected
with ttiis ill-omened syndicate, then
Smith-Barris will no doubt evict then
The same process will be repeated; tbe
land will not lie taken by anyone els j nnd
tbe tenants will be maintained by outside
subscription. It is clear that such a combination will be strong and tho greatest
care will be taken that it is not tyrun-
nously or unjustly used. Balfour will be
taken at his word, unal ii he means lo
attack the new combination as "illegal",
be will have to make it so by a new act of
parliament. If be attempts Hub be will

Tho Story of tho Board.
The custom of shaving the beard was enforced by Alexander of Macodon, not for tbe
sake of fashion, but for a practical and. He
knew that the soldiers of India, when tbey
encountered their foes, had tho habit of
grasping tbetn by the beard, and so he or
dered Ids soldiers to shave. Afterward shav
ing was practiaed in tho Alocedonlau army,
and tben among Greek citizens. The Romans imitated the Greeks in the practice, us
they did in many other things, and spread it to
the different European natious yet barbaric.
In the middle ages, at the timo of tbo RenaiB-
sance, shaving was introduced and the hSblt
was retained, thougU classicism gave plaee to
romanticism, and that iu its turn was replaced by realism. Tho heard was a source
of great trouble to Peter the Groat, who,
simultaneously with tho introduction of bis
great reforms in Russia, tried to induce bis
people to imitate the shaving nations. This
innovation was resisted hy his subjects with
tho utmost persistence, nud they preferred to
pay a heavy fine rather than suffer disfigurement, as they believed, uf the image of Goal.

THE HHh OF AUGUST,
PESSIMISM IN PUBLIC  AFFAIRS.
One of the most characteristic features
of modern popular opinion is a profound
and universal disbelief in thc sincerity ef
those who lake a prominent part in public affairs.    The cleanest record will not
shield any man  from  suspicion of self-
seeking nnd a desire to use his  influence
tor personal advancement, and the misfortune is that in nine cases out of ten
the suspicion is mere or less well founded,
"What is his little game?" is tlie question which we instinctively ask ourselves
when listening to some brilliant. able and
apparently   devoted champion of some
political or social reform.    "What aloes
he expect to niakeout of it'.'"   Tbe possibility—only a slight one perhaps—that
lie may be really in earnest  and  acting
independently of all personal considers-'
tions does not  often occur to us.     No
intelligent man now takes  a  newspaper
article at its face value as really expressing the opinions of tbe editor.     We read
between the lines in the attempt to alis-
cover tlie real significance and   interpret
the   hidden   as  distinguished   from  Ibe
pretended motives of its publication, The
cynical French adage thai "language was
given    to   enable    us    to   conceal   our
thoughts" was never more implicitly believed   or faithfully  acted  upon.    This
pessimistic frame of mind on the part of
the thinking portion of the community is
Inrgely justified hy experience.    Wr liavs
come to distrust men  because our confidence in the past ItaR been  so often  betrayed, because we have time and again
seen those who bud won a great following
liy their loud and lofty  professions kick
over   tbe ladder  by which   they   rose.
Begotten by widespread political  demoralization this  deep-seated scepticism as
to   men's   motives lends  lo  perpetuate
tbe evil which engendered it.   The dilli-
auilties   of   any   new   departure are immensely  Increased   by   it.   The young
men are growing up witli tbe idea that
public   life   is all a game of grab, and
either avoid politics as a dirty  business
or enter lhe arena determined that they,
too, will watch their chance and sell their
influence in the best market,   Obviously
people are much less easily moved than
formerly by appeals lo principle and the
sense of right.    Volumes of exhortation,
argument  anil  denunciation are poured
forth from press and pulpit and  platform
upon moral and social questions of vital
importance having a bearing upon political issues, hut thc response is feeble and
Italf-henrted as compared with the energy
expended.   It is tlie hardest thing in the
world to arouse moro than a  fitful  blaze
of enthusiasm, which dies away as Boon
as any severe strain is applied.   What is
the reason if it is not that tlie average
citizen lias made up bis mind that all
leaders, or  would-be   leaders   of   public
opinion   are   a   lot of self-seekers  and
hypocrites,  with axes of their own to
grind, and that it is very little use trying
to mend matters.   They are lirednfnew
departures which fail to depart; of tlie
frequent attempts to put the new wine of
genuinely liberal and progressive ideas
into thc eld bottles of faction and wire
pulling with the inevitable result.   It is
a  great deal  easier   to   indicate   the
disease    than    to     point     out    any
effectual   remedy    and    certainly   the
extent to wbich the public have lost faith
in the possibility of honesty and sincerity
in the world of politics and moral reform,
is a bad sign for our national future.
MISCELLANEOUS NOTE A.
And bow tlie Victoria papers, notably
the Timet, are discussing tlie question of
morning,  that  Captain Owens, of   the
seized schooner, took  the  law  into bis
own  hands ond    ran    away   from the
American  authorities, hearing witb him
tlie United States officer who was placed
on board his vessel to see that she was
safely taken    to   Ounalaska.    Captain
Owens has,  by  the display of a little I
"nerve,"  accomplished in  a lew days j
that   whicli  three   nations would  have
wrangled over for years, and then  per- |
haps   uot   have so satisfactory   settled.
Diplomacy is all very well in its way, bul
we cannot do otherwise than applaud this
dare-devil act of tbe captain of the Black
Diamond.   We wonder bow  this officer
from tlie Hush would feel if he should be
placed under arrest 111 Victoriu for being I
an accomplice to piracy on the high seas, j

Where Woman Excels.
When a woman has a hen to drive into tbo
coop, she takes bold of her skirts witn both
bonds, shakes tbem quietly at tbe delinquent
aad says: "Shoo, there I" The hen takes one
lawk at tbo object to assuro herself that it is a
woman, and tben stalks majestically Into tbe
coop. A man doesn't do lt that way. Ho
goes outdoors saying: "It's singular nobody
can drive a ben but me!" and picking upa
stick of wood, hurls lt at the offending biped
and yells: "(Jet In there, you thief 1" Tba
hen Immediately loses her reason and dashes
to the other end ot the yard. The man
plunges after her. She comes back with her
head down, ber wings out and followed by a
miscellaneous assortment of store wood,
fruit cans, clinkers, and a very mad man in
tbe rear.
Then sbe skims under the barn and orer a
(ence or two and around tbe house back to
the coop again, all tbe while talking aa only
an excited hen can talk, and all the while followed by things convenient for throwing,
and by a man whose coat Is on the sawbuck,
whose hat Is on the ground and whose perspiration is limitless. By this time the other
hens have come out to take a hand in the debate and help dodge missiles. The man rows
that every hen on the place shall be sold at
once, puts on his hat and coat and goes down
town. Tbe woman comes out, goes right to
work and has every one of those hens boused

MY WIFE'S LEGACY.
"I don't liko to calculate upon such
things," observed my wifo; "but if Aunt
Jano wero to dio I should not be o bit
surprised if sho loft uBtlmt old fashioned
set of silver that belonged to my great
grandparents."
Out of consideration for tbo printer I
will omit indications of tho emphasis
with which sho usually sjioke. If tho
reader will kindly consider every second
word printed in small caps or italics he
will have somo faint idea of her maiinor
of expressing herself.
"It is a very handsomo set," I returned, glancing about our modest dining room, "aud will hardly accord with
our furniture."
"It wouldn't look at all well with tliat
Bideboard," returned iny wife, promptly,
"it is so dreadfully shabby—oh, of coufae
I mean tho sideboard, not tlio ail-rov;
don't be so smart."
"I supposo, then, if such a thing wero
to happen, you'al havo to have a new
Bideboard."
Sho nodded coinplaeently.
"I saw such a lovely ono down town
today; antique oak, beautifully carved.
I do admiro oal; so muoh."
"But tho rest nf Ihe furniture is wnl-
nut," I objected.
"Walnut is altogether out of style, especially for dining rooms," sho replied
with a disdainful glanco at lhe chairs
which wo had once found very good to
look at; "and, after all, tho sideboard is
by so much the most expensive piece of
furniture in a dining room that it doesu't
cost much moro to get a wholo set than
just that ono piece. And oven a walnut
sideboard, new, would not look well with
theso chairs and this table."
I said nothing, and the tacit surrender
was accepted by my wifo. Thenceforth
It was understood that if Aunt Jane
should bequeath us tho silver, we were
to purchase a new set of dirfrng room
furniture.
?ho noxt evening, as wo wero again at
dinner, my wife remarked:
"I have been looking at carpets today,
and saw ono tliat just suits me; rich and
subdued, you know, but not dingy."
"Carpets," I repeated in somo surprise. "I didn't know that thero was
ono needed this season."
"Why, stupid," rejoined iny wife, pet-
slantly (and tbo emphasis was all upon
tlio pet name), "did wo not agrco that
the duiing room must bo refurnished?
and this carpet is so old and worn, of
course it would not tlo at all with new
furniture,"
Again 1 acquiesced silently, and she
■fl'ocoeded to mako plans for meeting use
tho next day to examine nnd chooso the
carpet and furniture to bo purchased
later on. Well, if my wifo's rolalians
left her handsome silver, I must of courso
provide things in keeping with it.
Sho met ino according to appointment,
and, having inspected tho articles, gavo
me to understand that my tasto was so
execrablo as not to merit a moment's
consideration, and announcing her owu
choice, suggested coolly:
"And now let's go look at tbo wall
paper."
"Wall paper?" 1 echoed, blankly.
"Of course; tho room must bo re-
papered if it is refurnished. As for tbe
wood work, I supposo thero is no help
for that; it will just bavo to be regrainod.
Can tbey mako that natural wood finish
on wood that has been painted:'"
I Btared aghast; that silver was going
to coBt mo a protty sun,*. But I was helpless, entirely so; my wifo had made up
her mind.
That evening sho was much elated ut
tho prospect of being surrounded by
such things as sho bait that day selected.
There was but ono cloud on hor horizon.
"Tho dining room will bo nicer than
the parlors," sho remarked, plaintively;
"I am afraid that they will really look
shabby."
I said nothing, hoping that if she were
not contradicted, she would not pursue
the subject farther.
Vain hope! She had fixed it in her
own mind tliat silenco gavo consent, and
when I came home tho next evening,
bad assumed that tho parlors woro to be
nowly fitted up.
"Don't you tlilnk," Bhe said, coaxingly,
"that ns long as tbo parlors and dining
room aro to bo torn up, and wo aro to
have tho painteu and paper haugors
hero, wo might as well havo the whole
house done? It would bo very littlo moro
trouble, and then it would all look nico
together,"
"It would be considerably moro expensive," I remonstrated, faintly.
"You might draw tho money oui of
tho building association," she suggested;
and then I knew tbat our savingsinthat
institution were doomed.
Aunt Jano lingered a long time. In
justice to my wife, I must admit sho had
becomo oblivious of tho fact that all thone
Improvements depended upon alegatay
which could only be possessed after the
death of her veneraWo relative.
A day or bo after sbe bad decided tin,,
the houso was to bo thoroughly reiv
vateal, my wifo said to mo:

.Stones Veneereal-Stuff Sold for Solid
Hold -.Vhlt'li Is Poorer Than a Good Article of IMnte—Snmll Profits.
"There ia no line of business in which
purchasers aro so completely at the mercy of store keepers as the jewelry trade,"
suid a leading denier. "Tho masses are
caught by mere appearances. They know
what pleases them, but have Uttle idea
of actual value. Few know tbo difference between machine mado and band
made goods; still less cau tell whether
gold is six carats fine or whether a stone
is worth $10 or ""lOO. Public trust in
these matters is absolutely pitiable.
Popular pride and ambition aro stupendous. Mere looks and alleged price are
practically all the buyer has to go by,
and the honesty of tlio dealer is bis only
safeguard, Then in addition to actual
grades of quality thero are numerous
snide practices that arc resorted to by
disreputable merchants and manufacturers, so that if a person contemplates
buying anything where the risk is considerable it behooves him to know something about the man ho deals with.
PAINTINO   ANI) VENEEI*IJ"0.
'Two diamonds, for instance, may be
nf the same size and cut, yet ono wiil be
worth twice, thrice or perhaps a dozen
times as much as the other. Yellow
white diamonds are common and blue
white are scarce, and even experts (hid
difficulty in giving tho Intermediate
shades their proper place in point of dollars and cents. Among irresponsible
dealers it is a common practico to 'paiut'
the Btones so as to mako the yellow diamonds whiter anal tho white diamonds
bluer. Tho paint will not even resist
soap and water, and will wear off more
quickly than the thinnest possible film
of gold on a brass ring. Yet for a timo
it makes the stono look twice as valuable
as it really is. A few days ago a gentleman brought a couple of diamonds to mo
to determino tlieir value. After I bad
washed tbem In soapsuds ho could scarcely believe they wero his own jewels, they
wero bo yellow. It is a common trick of
confidence men to paint diamonds and
then get a loan on them of twice or
thrice tbeir value. I will venture to sny
tbat two-thirds of the peoplo could not
tell a paste from a genuine diamond.
"Then thero is the process of veneering other precious stones. A pieco ol
glass or crystal of tho desired color and
appearance is taken as a body and a thin
covering of tho genuine nrticlo is Biiper-
imposed so as to convey tlio impression
of being genuine. Such a Btono in a
setting designed to cover up tho de
coption would mako dupes of half the
purchasers. The danger of being taken
in would not bo so great wero people
better posted. Show a man a lot out ou
tbo prairie and tell him it is worth $10C
a front foot and bo will laugh at you for
presuming upon Ids ignorance, but show
him a ruby or sapphlro and tell bim it ia
wortli $1,000 and bo will believo you.
Tho masses know nothing about relative
values in gems, and tho scope for deception is enormous.
SOLID AMD STUFFED OOLD.
"Then as to quality of metal and workmanship. Thero iu jewelry in tho market
sold for solid gold which la so low in
purity that a respoctablo plato would be
far preferable to tbo bo called soUd stuff.
A certain amount of alloy is, of course,
necessary for durability, but tho gold
that is actually manufactured into
jowelry varies In purity all the way from
four or six carats fine to twenty. Fourteen carats lino is tho standard, but there
is nn immeuso amount of 'solid' Btuff of
tbo low grodo sold annually, and a good
shnro of it is palmed oil for tho standard
purity. This cheap stuff is often dipped
lu n bath just so as to color it. Tho multitudes who oro Ignorant enough to accept a 'guaranty' tbat an article is solid
rarely tbink, perhaps, of degrees of
purity, and thoy are wofully taken in.
As a rule, there is something about all
plated and cheap stuff that betrays its
quality to tbo experienced oyo. Every
manufacturer has his own designers,
and, though copying is rife among the
workmen, you will rarely boo good:
cheap in prico without finding them
cheap in design and workmanship.
"As a rule, I think people havo crude
ideas about our profits. Tho price oi
jowelry is duo principally to tho scarcity
of tho material used und the amount oi
labor expended upon it. I do not think
that wo get moro than 25 per cent, gross
profit on tho average. When it is borne
in mind tbat styles aro constantly changing, that a large amount of capital i.-
bound up, bearing no interest, and thai
tho valuo of tho goods is constantly depreciating, owing to tbo flux of styles,
this is not abovo or even up to the average. If we could turn our money ovei
rapidly and not suffer loss from depreciation we would havo a protty good
thing; bet tho numerous failures in the
jewelry business beai' witness to what 1
say about small margins of profit. Diamond dealers have possibilities of making great profits legitimately, since,
when bought iu tho rough, tho stones
often turn out exceptionally well. I
have known a diamond valued, ut $1,500
lo bo rei'iit and then sell readily for S3,-

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity
I gratulating you upon the wide-spread repi
tation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jruwne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindustan, but all over
the Kast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into Ihe 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 ihe
native haraars, and judging from their salcl
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Urowne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhn**,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps.,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
at,. general Sedative, that have otturrec
und*.' our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhtea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, wc
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used nny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly lhe best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to thc proj
fession   and   the   public,   as   we ire ofthe |

The most important subject tai the people of t'liuaila at this time is lhe agricultural outlook. Politics and all other

The cricket match, Married v. Single,
played on the ti. C. C. grounds yesterday, combined with the baseball match,
Bradfords v. Wellington, drew quite a
crowd to witness the spoil. The cricket
mulch wus a rather one-sided affair, the
married men being altogether too strong
for the unattached, In fact Mr. Calverly
forthe married men beat their opponents
off his own bat. making very good play
for a score of 21, uot out, having carried
his bat throughout the innings.
The single men, captained bv Mr. II.
V. Rudd, went to tho wicket first. The
following are the scores:

In spite of the protracted meeting held a
short time ago to devise some means of
abating disease iu town, as far as I can
see nothing has been done. Maybe I um
a pessimist, or blind; but after such a
long pow-WOW il seems ridiculous to let
the matter alrop. just because sickness
baa abated. This is a short-sighted policy
iu my mind, hut. of course, I am uo
scientist and do not like to even suggest
that it would be advisable to make a
move in tbe matter of draining lhe city.
All I do know is that some most diabolical odors arise from Commercial Inlet at
low tide that, to say the least oi it, can
hardly be considered healthy; but still
may be enjoyed by some of our townsmen as the rail of lhe Long bridge is
rarely without a few occupants.

The Wellington men went to lhe bat first

and Edwards. Watson also maale a very
fine catch nt right field. The Bradfords
then weut in and did no better than
tbeir opponents, ns they retired without
scoring,
Both sides again went to the bat without making any runs, the Holding being
very spirited.
Soon after the Wellington team run
