LONDON   I.LITER.
The entire military ijiirrison of Dussel-
tlorf is now in the district disturbed by
the miner's slrike. At midnight hist night
the rioters set lire to an oil factory at
Lienafeld, causing the complete destruction of the works. The miners at Muel-
hem and Aursburg have joined the
strikers, antl the strike is still spreading.
Pitmen at Schleswig attacked their lire-
men
WITH   DAOOERS
last night and drove them Irom the work.
The military was sent for and arrived at
three o'clock this morning. The rioters
separated into two bodies and took refuge behind a railway embankment
whence they hooted and jeered at the
troops. The commander of tbe soldiers
thrice demanded that the rioters disperse and upon their third refusal ordered
Iiis men to fire. The order was obeyed
and six persons were killed including a
child four years of age, ami a woman was
wounded. The first consignment of coal
from Belgium arrived in the disturbed
districts to-day. There WSS no disorder
in consequence of its arrival as the whole
region
bristles with bayonets.
Mine owners held a meeting at Essen
to-day which was also attended by government officials and passed a resolution
to increase the wages of miners to the extent of their demand, but firmly refused
to concede tlie demand for eight hours
per ilay.
DECORATED.
It is reported that the Emperor has
conferred upon Captain Wissniunn the
order of the Red Eagle.
SAMOAN  CONFERENCE.
The Kmes Berlin correspondent says
the Samoan Conference has agreed upon
the land commission question and its
side issues and is also agreed upon the
matter of placing restriction upon the
sale of fire arms and liquor to  natives.
The Conference has also decided that
the election of a king shall be left to t
Samoans themselves.
M1NEKS   HATE  THE  TROUFK.
The excitement iu Dartmmid District
rapidly increases and the strikers careless
of the fact that the region is overrun
with troops eager to obey an order lo Ore
on the disorderly. Crowds are becoming
bolder as the strike progresses. The
hatred of the mob for the troops has
reached a boiling point.
RIOTING IN BERLIN.
In view of the fact that the orders
given by the military authorities in Berlin to the local commander do not extend
beyond the prevention of disorder, they
(the military) are openly defied, Everywhere they are goaded to exasperation
by taunts of cowardice, ami thoir temper
has been clearly shown in the number of
fatalities which have resulted from their
obedience to orders to lire on the mob.
Nor have rioters stopped at this, hut have
resorted to every conceivable means ol
provoking the troops into aggressive
action with the object of enlisting popular
sympathy with themselves. The number of killed and wounded in several collisions which have taken place is unknown
and it is impossible even to form an approximate estimate, as a great many of
the dead and injured have heen hastily
removed from the scene of battle by their
friends in out of the way places. Colonel
Mehaeles is ill supreme command of the
troops in disordered districts, aud is
literally currying out tho orders which he
received from Berlin, otherwise the
destruction of life would he much greater
than it has heen. Dortmund dealers,
owing to increasing scarcity of coal, have
sold out all of their stock at the unheard
of prices of nineteen marks a ton. Herr
Herrfurth, Prussian Minister of the
Interior, has returned to Berlin from
Gelsenklrohien, and the gravity ofthe
situation, as reported by bun, is shown
in the fact that the government immediately telegraphed orders to prohibit the
gigantic mass meeting which was to
have taken place at liclsenk'nvhior t
day. Popular sympathy with tho strikers
has resulted in raising a great outcry
against measures (or keeping order among
Socialists, hut which the public to a man
now deems, or professes to think, entirely too drastic and altogether impolitic,

PALI, OF Till! NEW  DOOR AT SOITIIAMITON.

POLICE    RAID    ON    FAKIIIONA11I.E    Sl'ORTINIl
runs.
The West End was all excitement,
when it became known that the police at
an early hour had raided the Adelphi
and Field Clubs as well as several others,
and captured a large number of persons,
including sporting men, actors, lawyers,
etc., —all of whom were taken
to the Bow Street Station. At the
Field Club the police made another large
haul of English gentlemen and noblemen,
including one sitting peer.

POLICE   KAIIl.
The prisoners were supplied with food
by friends, and with the exception ofa
few of the ClubOrticials were subsequently released on bail.
At two o'clock this morning a squad of
police halted in front of the Field Club
in Parti Place, St. James street, and rang
for admittance. The door was opened
by a servant when the officers
rushed in and discovered 21 |>ersons
playing baccarat for high stakes. Auiuutt
the players were three English and
several French and Belgian noblemen.
These gentlemen with their companions
were placed ill cabs and taken to Vine
street station, when thev were released
mi ball about noun in the sum of £100
eiu-h to appear in court to-moirow. The
police also sei/.ed £1110 in cash which
was exposed on the gaming tables.
Simultaneous with this mid another squad
of police effected an entrance into the
Adelphi club where they interrupted several games in full blast and inarched
about forty barristers, solicitors, professional sporting men, etc., to Bond Street
Station. These being of lower rank than
their fellow offenders at the Field Club
did not fare so well, as bail was refused
in a majority of cases.
Many perBons much higher in rank
than those bagged were supposed to be
forwamed, for the Prince of Wales and
some of his friends left before the raid of
the police.

t-I'MMI Ml'ATlltNS.
A letter was read from  George Camp-
[ bell. Secretary of Ibe Nanaimo Spiritual-
list Associntiuii, wishing to  rent  the hall I
offering $8 nightly and making a special'
: mention ol Sunday.    Received and filed, |
Haslem & Lees requested permission!
to remove one bent  of the  Mill  Stream j
bridge  as  tin-   lients an- too  narrow  at
' present   and they  have  to  break  their!
booms.   Leave was granted subject to the
supervision of the street Committee.
The City Clerk then read a deferred
communication from II. McAdiein which
; he desired tit make use nf a portion ill
1 Church street to place his building 111a-
{terial 011. lie had not sent in the neceS-
' sury $2.) deposit.
!    Aid.   Nightingale   was astonished at
{ McAttic, an ex-Alderman, doing such a
thing.    1 told bim lo ask permission be-
■ fore duing anything.
The Cily Clerk said  Mr.  McAdie had
! refused to Bend the deposit in.
The Mayor said that be thought the bylaw said be should not obstruct the sidewalk or Btreet without permission, he
wants to use nearly all the road.
Aid. Peck—We pass bylaws and yet
they are all made fun of. We arc a
laughing stock for everybody. Notwithstanding tbat your Worship in your wisdom refused a license to a certain hotel
a magistrate from another city steps in
and allows him one. i make a motion
that he be told to remove the obst ruction
at once.
Aid. Nightingale—We want him to
deposit $20 or clear his things away.
Aid. Baker—I asked him to fill in the
dangerous place he had left in the sidewalk, lie only laughs at me, I consider
it is the duty of the Council to make him
do it.
The City Council was instructed to inform McAdie that be either had to send
iu the deposit at once or clear away his
materials from the street.
A letter was read from W. ('. Robinson

LETTERS TR0M THE PEOPLE.
Editor Courikb:—1 believe there is a
cily by-law to the eU'ecl that builders
may mil use ninrc than one third of any
street for staking building materials. Do
lmt you think it would Is- a good plan to
have Ibis law amended and give them
the right to use the whole street and
blook the traffic as long as Ihey choose'.'
Under such clrcumstancea there would
be no law-breakers in this respect.) At
present, wilb lhc exceptions, the by-law
is a dead letter.

Referred to the Finance Committee to

Aid. Mahler said  011   the   question of
granting a further lease of the Institute
Hall lo the Salvation Ami}—I   am   still
of the same opinion as I was   last week.
The old Scotch church would be a good
place for them. They retard the progress I
of the city.   The Board of Trade had no
other place to   meet   than   the   Council!
Chamber and the noise made by tlio R. I
A. i\a« a nuisance.
AM. Baker was rather in favor of the
s. A. Bethought that ii they had done j
no good they had done no harm.
AM. Abrams moved thatthay be allow-;
ed the Hall  for $25 a 111.111111. with the
idea lhal Ihey do not use il on  Mondays,
and the Council reserves ibree nightan
week.
Aid. Nightingale thought also thai
they had done more good than harm.
Their worst feature was travelling in the
middle nf the streets. Some ilay they
would get mixed up with a runaway
horse and would sutler accordingly.
Aid. Baker thought they ought lot-lean,
up the hall.
The Mayor said they would get the hull
at the rate of $1 a night whilst others
paid $5.
Ala. Mahrer said the drum was his
favorite aversion. What ia $25 to us.
Sick persons might be disturbed by their
row.
Aid. Mahrer said it was his opinion
that God didn't want a drum beaten in his
praise.    It is laughable.
The motion was carried to allow them
to have the hall for (26a month fur three
nights in the week.
The letter from the Nanaimo Spiritualist Association ottering to pay $3 a night
lor the use of the hall  once or twice a;
fortnight.    Leave granted.
The report of the Street Committee
was then read. It stated that men had
lieen engaged grading and widening Mill
Street, alsu four men making a ditch on
Nicol Street, and one man was engaged
part of the week on Wharf Street, which
is greatly improved.
The report was received and filed.
il..-  Trump  Win, Had Been   Trained   fe*
JouruMllriui Works a New Scheme.
Tlio tramp was a very seedy Individual al-
together, tall oud angular, with a woebegone,
hatchet faced, and a general air of dlsrepu-
taliility about his make up. His shoes were
''■■i,y,'->l, so was bis sock coat; his trousers
were patched, and he had no necktie. Ha
minhl liuvu been an ill starred actor, or a dog
tighter gone to seed, or a tramp printer. But,
I aene tbo less, it wus a graceful attitude that
be struck before tbe door of tho cottage as
1 "the lady uf tbe bouso" appeared.
'■Madam," be said, "you seo before you the
wreck uf ouuuf tlio grandest chicken handlers
that ever opened a game soiree In a New
Orleans parlor.   f)t> you follow me, madam I"
Tbe woman replied that she knew nothing
of cbicken fighting or of Louisiana society.
"Well, uuidam, let me put It in another
form. I represent the remains of Chicago's
ooblast work of art—an untamed bunco. 1
tuive numbered among my patrons tbe foremost mou lu America. Why, It teems but
yestertlay tbat 1 met General Booth and Introduced myself to him as the son of bis old
friend and playmate, tbe president ot tbe Ske-
doddels bank. Alt, madam, if I could touch
every one 1 meet as 1 touched General Booth
for u double X, 1 would not be here cringing
before your lovely face and blinding beauty.
Do-or—do you yet size me up I"
The woman thought she didn't, but wasn't
quite sure.
'"Hiojacet sweiterkaset' as Napoleon said
wben bo threw his last dollar on the seventeen. Have you ever noticed on actor,
madam, when tbe fretful babble of society^
pampered favorites Is bushed by the force ol
bis magnificent impersonation I Such was I
once, years ago, ere I sank beneath 'the
slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.1
You seel you parlez vons?"
The woman was growing restless. "If you
want to sell a picter book or a new double
bock action can opener, young man," she
said sharply, "show yer samples. Don't
keep a body here in the cold."
"Well, madam, I am a ruined man, irretrievably ruined. You see, I studied journalism at college and thought myself another
Dana. I was full of hope when I first set
foot In Now York and set about creating a
sensation. 1 Imagined myself city editor,
then managing editor. I saw myself obliterating tho old style of journalism and Inaugurating a new school. My name was heard
everywhere. It was blazoned on the musty
scroll of history and sent forever down the
future years. Well, I didn't make much sensation or money, and in an evil moment I
took to writing verses, hoping to supplement
my small weekly salary. Don't shudder so;
I have paid In full tbe penalty of my wrong
doing."
He pulled out the tenpasm; nail tbat served
for a button In his coat, and, thrusting hit
bony fingers Into an inner pocket, produced
a greasy, much crumpled sheet of paper.
"I call this my last blue chip, madam, because I have played It In every newspaper
office east of the Rockies. It is one of those

to port with it. When I have shown it to my
brother journalists they have praised it.
They did not offer to buy It lest they might
injure my sensitive feelings. But on the
strength of this poem they blow me off to a
square meal and give me a list of the deserted
barns for the next five miles, or toll me ths
lay of the most vicious dogs in their neigh*
bsrhood. Today, as I was passing your
house, I saw your lovely face at the window,
and"	
"Why don't you show your poem to ths
woman over in that red house?"
"Oh 1 madam, she is not like you. Pardon
my bluntness, but as I saw her sitting oa ths
back veranda she seemed as homely as a win
fence. Sho must be a very ordinary person,
I think. No, below the average, for sas
wears a wig. But in your face I saw tee an-
gello temperament, the refined simplicity
that would have turned Pope's cynical shafts
upon man and away from woman."
"I think I con give you something to eat,
sir, if you will step in the dining room," said
the woman; "but I can't buy your poem."
After be had eaten a meal that would have

bowed himself out and started away on Us
weary journey. But half a mile further on
he stretched himself out on a flat shelf of
rock and, lighting a pipe, gased up at a wintry sky.

Money for Money's Sake.
The late Dick Hopple, whose wealth was
counted up Into the millions, was an ardent
lover of money for money's sake. He didn't
Accumulate It with the intention of buying
pleasure with it, neither did be ever, with a
miser's motive for hoarding, deny himself the
necessities of life. He always had for himself tho best, and always lived like a gentleman that he was, every inch of him. Still
he loved to accumulate for the sake of accumulation. When ho died an old tin box almost as big as a Saratoga trunk was among
his goods and chattels In the safe deposit
department of tho Lafayette bank, tt
was not filled with bulky plate and other
Hopple heirlooms, neither wen there any
old clothes in It There were deeds, plenty
of thorn, a few mortgages, some bonds, a
good deal of shining gold and tho rest of the
fllltug was greenbacks of denominations that
woro largo. It hod beon tho custom of ths
old gentlemen for years whenever he had
{1,000 in change to buy a $1,000 greenback
with it aud put it in the tin box. The
law, it will bo remembered, does not allow
greenbacks to be taxed. This money so hid
away did not Increase in value, did not earn
anything, did not in any possible way benefit the world. But hold) It did benefit tho

THE  FUTURE OF AGRICULTURE
IN VANCOUVER ISLAND.
We understand tbat the fanners of
Cedar District are mooting tlie subject of
forming themselves into an Agricultural
Association. This is as it should be, for
not one of .Esof'b fables appeals more
to us than does that in which the old
man sIicwb to his bis sons bow a bundle
of sticks bound together will resist enor-
mouB pressure, though taken singly.tbey
may be broken by the exertion of but
very slight force. All political economists
are agreed that agriculture is at the base
of the prosperity of every state. It was the
first occupation of man, and bids fair we
should think, to be the last. Mineral
wealth in time becomes exhausted—the
exigencies of trade are constantly shifting the recognized centres for the manufacture of certain classes of goods- but
with careful cultivation the value of land
increases. Trade combinations, both
among employer and employed, bave
long been a recognised factor in the
furthering of tlie interests of each. Agriculture alone lias stood aloof from this
movement. We hear much of the widespread distress at present obtaining
among tho farmers of Great Britain, ami
yet so far as we are aware the class
affected, lias as yet. taken no decided
step towards a general combination of interests. It may be this apparent lack of
eagerness to combine on the part of
farmers, is owing to the fact that the
very nature of their occupation keeps
them apart, more than does the calling
of any other class of the community. We
do not mean to infer that the formation
of an association such as tlie one to which
we have reference is but a very short
step in the direction we would bave
them take. An united and powerful interest would speedily be iu a position to
ensure conideration of its reasonable requests at the hands of the government—
any administration we firmly believe,
only requiring the how, and the whv,
clearly placing before them, to speedily
take action in the desired direction.

The ever increasing demand for Sctlon
is fast assuming proportions of suoh
magnitude, tlmt it is hy no means im-
proliahle that this taste on the part of
the reading public if not held within
bounds (of course we hnvo reference
more particularly to our boys and girls)
will ere long, assume proportions of sm-li
magnitude, that it will become—nny
there are those who assert that it bus
already become—a species of moral ilraiu-
ilrinking, as pernicious in its effect ns
opium, upon the mind of the render. Wo
have no reference to the works by such
as George Eliot, tbe lironte sisters,
Thackeray, Trollope, Dickens, Scott and
the rest of the famous men anil women
who havo peopled the world with licliti-
ous characters antl scenes, which will live
so long as tbe English language is spoken.
We allude to the great muss of fiction
foisted upon the public, wherein tbe
emotions and passions are the chief—we
might almost add tbe only "motif" of the
writer. Books wherein love is glorified
to the exclusion of honor, self-respect
duty to parents and the many other
virtueB, without which tli is would be but
a aorry world in which to live. Books in
which the sentiment is sickly,the modesty
sham and thc whole tone more or less
unhealthy—It is books of this kin.l we
contend, that form tbe chief mental pabulum of u very large portion of young
people of the present ilay, ami also to a
lesBcr extent of tlieir elders. Books in
which the English is not English, the
atyle execrable in which love alone is
glorious anil all else not worth; of a moment's consideration. Wc fully recognize the fact that people must, nntl will
read; all wo would ask is that buyers of
books should use some little care In their
selection, ami mil lake a mass of worth-
leal rubbish because it is offered in
them as the very latest ont.

Wk think that we are doing no less
than our duty in calling attention to the
fact—and that it is a mosl undoubted
fact we bave reason to know— Hint quarts
ledges occur in varying widths over 1
largo purt ofthe island of Lasquetl. Pros
pectors and others who bave failed to
locate satisfactory claims on Ibe sister
island of Texada would do well, we feel
BBSured, tospenda few days in examining
Lasqueti rock. The Island is more accessible In every way than is Texadit—the
highest point, ML Reginald, barely exceeds 1,000 feet—besides an average width
of only three miles precludes the possibility of any one of ordinary capacity
"bushing" himself for more than nn hour
or two. Deer are plentiful, whilst that
sine qua tion. fresh water, may be hail
almost anywhere at this season of the
year. The mention of Lasquel i deer reminds us of an incident tbat recently
came under our observation. A young
Englishman prospecting for gold and being out of provisions saw 11 horned bend
staring at him out of a thicket of tangled
undergrowth, the "argonaut" "pulled"
and found to Mb astonishment that deer
on that particular island grew wool
instead of hair, and that in plate of tbe
"golden fleece." to find which be bud
come so far and dated so much, be bail
gained but a fleece composed of anything

BILL NYE IN VIRGINIA.
HE      DESCRIBES     60ME      OF     THE
BeAUTIES   OF   M0NT1CELL0.
An Attack ou Fort Moultrie Graphically
Described—Tim Man Who l.u.t HI. Hat
and Why Ho Lost It—Tlio Stnuiffor Who
tiu Hard to Get   Rid Of.
Looso In Virginia, along the latter part of
th(8 season, ehortly previous to the writing of
these lines, I visited Moutiei-llo, tho former
houio of Tboinus Jefferson, also his grave.
Montiecllo Is about au hour's ride from Charlottesville, by diligence. Ouo rides over u
road constructed ot rip-Hrapsund broken stono.
It is called a macadamized road, and twenty
miles ui it will mnke '.be jwlvis of a long
tvalsted man chafe against his ears. I havo
decided that the site for my grave shall bo
at the end of a trunk lino somewhere, and I
will endow a droska to enrry passengers to
and from said grave.
Whatever ray lifo may havo been, and
however short I may have falter, lu my great
struggle for u generous recognition of tho
American people, 1 propose to place my grave
within reaeli of all.
Montieello is reached by a circuitous route
to tho top of a beautiful hill, on the crest of
which rests tho brick houso where air Jelfer
son livod. Wo enter a lo.-lge gate in charge
ot a venerable negro, to whom wc pay two
bits apiece apiece for admission. This sum
goes toward repairing tho roads, according
to tho tioket which we get It just goes to-
ward It, however; it don't quite get there, 1
judge, for tho roads aro still appealing for
aid. tJp through a neglected thicket ol' Virginia shrubs and ill kempt trees we drivo to
tlio houso. It Is a hou3o wbicb would readily
command *-~o0 if sold this fall, with queer
porches to It and large, airy windows. The
top of tho wholo lull was graded level, or
terraced, and must have required an enormous quantity of work to do It, but Jefferson
did not care. Ho did not caro for fatigue.
With £00 slaves of his own and a dowry of
300 moro, whtoh was poured into his coffers
by his marriage, Jeff did uot euro how much
toll It took to polish off tho top of a blul? or
how muoh tho sweat stood out on the brow of
ft bill.
Jefferson wrote the Doolaration of hide-
pendenoe. Ho sent It to ono of the magazines,
but it was returned as not available, so he
used it in Congress and got it afterward
printed In the Record
M.Niri'"e: i„, ,

ftUrW5,rS™
I saw tho chair ho wroto It iu. It la a
plain, old fashioned wooden chair, with a
kind of bosom board ou tho right, upon
which Jefferson used to rest his Declaration
of Independence whenever ho wanted to
wrlto it.
Ho also has an old gig stored thoro In tho
house. In this gig he U60d to rldo from
Montieello to Washington In a day. This Is
a lie, but tt goes with the plaoc. It takes
from 8.80 a,, m. to noon to ride this distance
on a fast train, and In a much more direct
line than tho old wagon road ran.
Mr. Joffersou was tho father of tho University of Virginia, one of the most historic
piles I bavo ever clappod oyoson. It is now
under the imuins,uiiionc ot n classical janitor,
wbo has a tinge of negro blood in his veins,
mixed with tho rioh Castlllan blood of somebody else.
He has boon at tho hood of the university
of Virginia for over forty years, bringing In
the ooals and exercising a general oversight
ovor the curriculum. Ho is n modest man,
with a tendency toward the classicul In hla
researches. Ho took us up on tho roof, showed
us the outlying country, and jarred our ear
drums with the big bell. Mr. Estcs, who bus
charge of Montieello — called Montechello
—said that Mr. Jefferson used to sit
on bis front poroh with a powerful
glass, and watch the progress of the
Work ou tho university, and if tho workmen
undertook to smuggle In a soft brick Mr.
Jefferson, fivo or six ratios away, detected it
It, and hounding lightly iuto his saddle, ho
rode dowu thoro to Obarlottosvlito and
clubbed the bricklayers till tbey were glad to
pqll down the wall to that brick and take it
out again.
This story is what mado me speak ot that
section a row minutes ago as an outlying
country.
Charles L. Seigol told us the other day<of
an attack on Port Moultrie during tho early
days of tho war, which has never been
printed. Mr. Seigol wasa German Confederate during tho war, and early in the fight
was quartered, in compauy with others, at
the Moultrie house, a seaside hotel, the guests
having deserted thu house.
Although largo soft beds with curled hair
mattresses wero In each room, tho depart ment
Issued ticks or sacks to bo tilled witli straw
for the use of the soldiers, so that they would
not forgot that war was a serious matter.
Nobody used them, but thoy were there ull
the same.
Attaohcd to tho Moultrie house,ami wondering about tho onck yard, there wns u small
orphan jackass, a sorrowful littlo light bine
mammal, with a tinge of bitter melancholy
in his voice. He used toil well ou tho pasta
good deal, and at night he would refer to it
lu a voice that wus ohokod wltb emotion.
Tho boys caught bim ouo evening as the
gf*fiming began to arrange Itself, aud then
threw him down on the green grass. They
then palled a straw bed ovor his head,
and Inserted bim in It completely, cutting
holes In It for bis legs. Then thoy tied a
string of sleigh bells to his tail, and hit him
a smart, stinging blow with a blacksuuke.
Probably that was what It wns thnt suggested to liim tho idea of strolling down the
beach, past the guard, and on tow aid the fort.
Tha darkness of the night, the rutile of the
hoots, the clash of the l»lls,tho quick challenge
of the guard, tbo failure to give tho countersign, the sharp volley of the soutinels, uud
the wild cry "to arms," followed lu rapid

succession. The tocsin sounded, also the
slogan. Thoculveiin, ukaae.end door tender
were all fired. Hugo beacoui of fat pine were
lighted all along tbe beach. The whole slumbering host sprang to arms, and tbe crack of
the musket was heard through the inteoso
darkless.
In the morning the enemy was found In-
trenobed in a mud bole, south of the fort,
with his new clean straw tick spattered with
clay and a wildly disheveled tail.
On board tho Richmond train last week, as
pulled out of Petersburg, a man lust his bat,
and it fell by tho side of the track. The
train was just moving slowly out of tho station, and so he had a chance to jump oft" mid
run back after it. Ho got the hat, no duubt,
but not til) wo hud placed seven or eight
miles botween us and him. We could uot
help feeling sorry for him, because very
likely his hat had an embroidered hat band
in it, prosented by ono dearer than life Itself,
and so wo worked up quito a feeling Cor him,
though, of course, it was very foolish for
him to lovo his train just for a hat, even if it
did have the needlework of his soul's Idol
in it.
Yesterday I was surprised to seo the same
man in Columbia, 8. C, and ho then told mo
this sad story:
"I started out a month ago to take a Uttlo
trip of a few weeks, and the flrst day was
very, very happy Kerutiuizing nature aud
soauulng the faces of those 1 saw. On tho
second day out 1 ran across a young man
whom I bad known slightly before, and who
is engaged in the business of being n companionable fellow and lifo of tho party. That
is about all tbe business ho haa, Ho knows n
groat many people, and h is olrcle of acquaintances is getting larger all the time. Ho ia
proud of tho enormous quantity of friendship
ho has acquired. Ue says he can't get on a
train or visit any town in the Union that he
don't And a friend.
"Mo iK full of stories aud witticisms, and
explains tho plays to theatre parties. Ho has
seen a groat deal of lifo and Is a keen critic.
He would bavo enjoyed criticising tho
Apostlo Paul and his elocutionary stylo if ho
bad been ono of the IDphesians. Ho would
l.uvo criticised Paul's gestures, and said,
'Paul, I liko your epistles a heap better than
I do your appoaranoo on the platform. Vou
ozpross yourself well enough with your peu,
but when you spoko for tbo Ephesian 7. SI.
C. A., wo wero disappointed in you and we
lost monoy on you.'
"Well, he Joined mo, and finding out whero
1 was going, ho deoided to go also. He wont
along to explain things to me, and talk to mo
when 1 wanted to sleep or read tho nows-
paper. He introduced mo to largo numbers
of people whom I did not want to meet, took
mo to soo things 1 didn't want to see, read
things to mo that I didn't waut to hear, and
Introduced me to people who didn't want to
meet mo. He multiplied misery by throwing
uncongenial people together aud then said,
'Wasn't it lucky that 1 could go along with
you aud make it pleasant for you?'
"Everywhere ho met more new people with
whom he had an acquaintance. Ho shook
hands with them, and called them by their
flrst names, and felt in their pockets for
cigars. Ho was just bubbling ovor with
mirth and laughed all the time, being so offensively joyous, iu fact, that when he wont
into a car lie attracted tho general attention,
which suited him lirst rate. Ho regarded
himself as a general favorite and all around
sunbeam.
"When wcgotto Washington hetookmoup
to soo the presidont. [Io knew tho president
well—claimed to know lots of things about
the president that made him moro or loss
feared by the administration; know a thousand littlo vices of all our public men, which
virtually placed tbem in his power. Ho
knew how tbo president conducted himsolf at
home, and was 'on to overy thing1 in public
lifo.
"Well, ho shook bands with tho president
aud introduced mo. I could seo that tho
president was thinking about somothlng else,
though, aud so 1 came away without really
feeling that I knew liim very well..
"Then wo trMfcwl Mm* tlapa.pt-r>*mta| twd I
can seo now that I hurt myself by being
towed around by this man. He was so frco
and so joyous and so bubbling that wherever
wo wont i could hear tho key grato In tho
look after wo wont out of tho door.
"Ho started south with mo. Ho was going
to show mo all tho battlefields, aud introduce me iuto society. I bought somo strychnine in Washington and put it in his buckwheat cakes; but thoy got cold, and ho sent
tbem back. 1 did not know what to do, and
wus almost wild, Cor I was traveling entirely
for ploasure, and not especially for his pleas-
ure either.
"At Petersburg I was told that the.train
going tho other way would meet us. As we
started out I dropped my bat from tho window while looking at something. It was a
desperate movo, but I did It. Then I jumped
oil tho train and went back after It. As
soon as I got around tho curve I ran for
Petersburg, whero I took the othor train. I
presume you all felt sorry for me, but if
you'd seen mo fold myself in a long, passionate embrace after I hod climbed on tho other
train you would have cbongod your minds."
He then possod gently from my sight.—Bill

Leaving out the question of equal compensation with man for her services, i would
ask, to the feminine organisation and nature
as well fitted to work as man [works In any
culling? Is it good for a sensitive, refined
girl to be placed in any position where sbe
DUttt come in contact and ileal with all man
ner of men, the coarse, rude aud overbearing,
aa well as tho gentleman ( Do we not see
women who have long filled Bnab positions
covered as to manner, bearing and even Ban-
meat, with a sort of masculine armor which
strikes ono somewhat unpleasantly ? Such
covering becomes for tbem a necessity, a
matter of self protection. It is often unconsciously acquired.
Perhaps you say "a lady can bo a lady
anywhere aud possess all tbo peculiar charm
<»f femininity and womanliness.1' Lbeg leave
to differ. Placo a refined girl In a position
where she must, mouth in and month out,
deal and como In contact with courser natures ume-tonths of tho timo and ouo of
these two results will follow: She will either
bo unable to enduro tho position, or sho wiil
unconsciously acquire and tako on sumo of
tbo coarseness by which she Is surrounded.
W«are all affected aud influenced by our
uluseft surrounding of everyday association
li you are compelled to live for months in a
oooi mine and among miners and see, bear
and sjieak with only that class, you might
i>\'. surprised on emerging and going into a
different social order to Und how much of
eoal mine thought, Idea an/1 phraseology you
iaid unconsciously acquired.
Ou tho other hand, a refined woman's pros
ence in store, oflice, or any placo whero men
mostly congregate, has a softening and re
lining iufluonco. It checks tho coarse v.m.i
aud vulgar jest. It puts men on their good
behavior But is this always gained with
oat a certain loss to tho woman? Whero
course thought has long been rampant, it is
only suppressed, not destroyed, and the
woman's moro sensitive naturo will feel such
thought, and fool it oppressively, mid such
finding either becomes in timo an injurious
shackle or she will to somo extent givo way
to it and unconsciously become a part of it.
1 do not think that woman is well fitted,
physically or mentally, to go Into tho rough
und tumble of tho world's business aud fight
it out alongside of tho man. I mean by
'rough and tumblo" any occupation sho may
engage in, bo it teaching, clerking, bookkeeping, anything whero sho labors as long
and us arduously as tho mau. That does not
seem to mo hor placo, for she has a placo and
a "sphere" as man has his placo and sphere.
Man did not mako this place for hor. Nature did. As mnu's "helpmate" sho should
Iw man's rest. If tho two—man aud wifo—
ore both participants in what wo call "tho
struggle for existence," tbey both aro equally
tired with tho struggle. If both are weary,
they can only glvo each other weariness. If
ouo is rested, that one can givo tlio Other
rest Tho rested ono should bo tho woman—
tlie wifo. If sho bo a wife, a renl wifo, she
will, through such rest, givo her companion
strength, cheer, courage and inspiration for
tho next day's effort. If she has beon in the
office working at tbo desk all day, sho can
not Thoro is a great factor in social matters
known as the home, and it is woman only
who can mako tho homo. At present there
aro relatively few homes, though many
houses, whero men and women eat aud drink
together. A real home, with a bright, cheer
fut, rested woman in it, is worth far moro to
a man, oven in dollars and cents, than any
thing tho woman mny earn by any other
effort
How, you bay, "But what aro you going to
do with all tlio single women who must earn
their bread?" I don't know. I think it is a
very unhealthy and unnatural stato of affairs
that there should be bo many single women.
1 find in nil nature where man bos not meddled that birds nnd animals aro generally
found iu pairs, and they pair ol? at an early
ago, too. With us it is different, Many
never do pair at alL I cannot look upon a
woman as a whole woman, or a man ns a
wholo man, until they aro paired—really
paired, I mean —alike tn sentiment, taste,
aims, motive aud inspiration. Then tho men
and women And their "respective spheres" of
notion as naturally and easily as you And air
to breathe. Perhaps you say; "But tins is
uot dealing with tho present situation." 1
think It is. I think tho present is always
dealt with best by indicating tho certain possibilities of tho future. Whon you know a
possibility, when it strikes tho chord of truth
within you and 3'ou know it for a truth, you
aro on tho read and aro making your path
toward such possibility.
Thero Is a "place" and a "sphere" for tho
feminine nature aiul feminine mind which
havo thus far been little recognized. Sho is
tbo source, and only source, of man's inspiration. By "Inspiration" 1 mean plan, Idea,
device, scheme nnd invention iu any calling.
Man cannot live without tho feminine spirit
ual element about him. When you put
hordes of men together, us they aro some
times placed in armies or settlements ami
separated from the other sex, they grow not
only coarse, but stupid and dulled in Intel
loot. Whero you find women best eared for,
tMWt shielded from tho world's roughness, and
at the same time mast respected, you And
tbo most masculine power and tho most
rounded out masculino natures, Why? Because tho foininino naturo belonging to that
man, nud that man only, when so protected
as you would protect any delicate instru
ment, is thou In tho position to givo him that
ilrength which he uses os his rougher plane
of effort.—Preutico Mulford in New York

Closets and "Clutter Places."
Can wo not slightly modify an old and
Wise adage aud find that "woman is known
by tho closet sho keeps?" for a closet indl
oates to a greater or loss oxtent somo traits
In tho average woman's character.
Havo wo not soon all kinds? Look Into

way; tho shelves, if thero are any, crowded
with empty or useless bottles, or piled high
with boxes or baskets. Perhaps our owu
closets may contain ono or moro of these
evils.   How shall wo remedy them?
In tho first place, keep tho closet door shut
during tho day, for nu open door is ouo thing
that gives aa air of untidiness to tho whole

Most young women think that to smooth

Any serious illness Is a fight all the way

certain things can be made to answer otboi

and bonnets. A loug window sent made
from a pino box and covered with figured

(Special to the Col'RlEK.)
Victoria. May 13.—One of the most
brutal, atrocious and diabolical murders
which ever occurred in this Province was
committed here last niglit. A young
and pretty Chinese woman named Y'om
Kara was living at 71 King nurd street
with ber owners—a Chinese man ami
woman—in the worst kind of slavery, a
slavery to the vilest of human passions.
She made the acquaintance of Am llerni,
a young Chinaman who has worked as a
domestic servant at an hotel. This Chinaman, wbo is suspected of tbe terrible
crime, fell in love with Yon. Kum and
wished to marry ber, but was not allowed
on account of his small wages, lie was
walking yesterday with the girl and bad
a quarrel, ending with tlie words
pay dearly for this to-night
Aliout 11 o'clock she took her seat by the
window, with ber head protruding
through the wicket. According lo tbe
testimony of an old woman, Ah Ilenn,
Mar Kee and See Joe Fat came along.
Mar Kee grabbed the girl's bead while
Ah Herm wielded an axe with a blade
six inches across. Three times did the
axe descend upon the poor girl's neck, id-
most completely severing the head from
the body. Her life-blood spurting out
upon the Bidewalk and forming a ureal
crimson pool underneath the window.
The murderers then made off. The inquest was held to-day and the testimony
of several witnesses heard. Tbe jury
returned the verdict that, the evidence
pointed strongly to tbe above three Chinamen being the guilty perpetrators. The
Chief of Police is using every effort to
capture the murderers ami hopes that
they will be brought fo justice.

Thequestion was put and it was decided to hire both bands as the days
work would be too fatiguing for one band
to undertake. It was also decided that
tlie junior band should play during the
day, and the Nanaimo hand would supply
the dance music in the evening as tbey
possessed several reed and stringed instruments.
A letter was read from Mr. Bates, Proprietor of the Stewart House, Vancouver,
in which he stated that several persons
who had never seem Nanaimo wished tp
avail themselves of the opportunity
afforded them by the Queen's birthday
and he would like some of the programmes sent to him. There was some
talk of running the races on the Comox
road instead of in the usual place.

Judging from tbe following stories there
must he some exceedingly hungry horses
in Vancouver. In Hastings recently a
Mr. Roberts put a fifty-pound sack of
flour in the buggy belonging to his neighbor, Mr. Phillips, for him to carry home.
Phillip's horse was feeding out of Ihe
buggy, and had just finished twelve ears
of corn antl two bundles of (odder, lie
turned his attention to the Hour, ami
when Phillips went to hitch up to go home
