FURTHER CRONIN REVELATIONS.
Chicago, June 11.—The lirsl witness in
the, Cronin inquest litis inoi-ning was
John Oarrity, a teamster. The substance of his testimony was that about
two years ago, Dan Coughlin came to
him and asked him if he thought he
conldget Major Sampson to "do up" a
fellow for him. WitneBs said to Coughlin, "Suppose we kill him?" Coughlin'
replied, 'It wouldn't make much difference if he was killed." Qarrity told
Coughlin that he had better see Sampson
himself, and Coughlin asked liim to tell
Sampson to come and see him. Aliout
two weeks after Sampson came to him
laughing, and asked if he knew what
Coughlin wanted him to do. He said,
"No," and Sampson said, "he wanted
me to 'do up' Cronin." Witness said he
told Sampson to tell Dr. Cronin about it,
and keep away from the whole business.
Several times after this Coughlin asked
witness to try and induco Sampson to
do the job. Paul Helfig, Disk Sergeant,
at the East Chicago Avenue Station, was
the next witness. He did not see Dan
Coughlin on the evening oi May -1th.
In the early part of May Officer Coughlin was called up by telephone by a man named Sullivan,
aaying he'wanted Coughli* to come to
his house. Coughlin wob not in the
station at the time, but the witness gave
him the message. [Coughlin said it was
Sullivan who wanted to see him.] Desk
Sergeant Robert Montgomery said Coughlin used the telephone nearly every day
and appeared to be making appointments.
Sullivan was the only name given by the
person who asked for Coughlin over the
telephone. J. P. Haggerty, a railroad
clerk, testified that after the trial oi Dr.
Cronin, Alexander Snllivan told him Dr.
Cronin was a scoundrel, q menace to the
Irish cause. It wns the witness's im-
preSBion that Sullivan was trying to impress his opinion that Cronin Bhould be
exterminated. The witness was of the
same opinion at that time. About that
time a circular had been issued, sayiug
that many Scotland Yard detectives had
left "England for America- to attempt to
find out some of the secrets oi the order,
and every member was on guard for informers. The witnesses oi Captain Lomashey's missions oi instruction
to England, Carrall, Korwln and Bolano
were scored for neglecting the families of
the dynamiters. Flemings' mother died
in the poor house. The captain's wife
waB turned out of ber house by the
sheriff. She testified before the committee that she had received but one thousand dollars from tbe organization. She
saw Alex. Sullivan and told him her condition, but he did not aid her. This concluded the reading and also the enquiry,
and at this hour (8:30 p. ra.) the jury is
deliberating upon it's verdict. It was
half-pas' four this afternoon and the
reading oi the private papers
OP THE MURDERED MAN
had just been finished, when Coroner
Hertz faced the jury and said impressively: "Gentlemen—Do you want to hear
any more witnesses?" 1 have plenty
more witnesses. I have plenty more if
you do." Quick as a flash came the reply from the foremen: "I think we
have heard enough, we would like to retire." His colleagues nodded assent and
at 4:45 p. m. six men filed into the coroner's private oflice, doors were closed
and guards placed on the outside us a
bar against eavesdroppers. At six
o'clock a request came out for
supper, and it was served from n
neighboring restaurant. Hakim Martinson, a Sweedish expressman who hauled
the furniture from the Clark street flat to
Carlson cottage, told his story ns it bus
been already published. Officer Moore
told of a conversation he bad with Cronin,
in which the latter said Sullivan bud
threatened to kill him and thnt he know
there was a conspiracy to put him out of
the way. The next witness was Chief oi
Police Hubbard, who repealed the statement mode to him by the prisoner Woodruff, and which the chief said lie believed
to bo a true story. It wns to the effect
that two men named King and Fairburn
had hired him several days before the
tragedy to have a horse and wagon ready
when they notified bim. paving him *-*'•
On May 4th he was ordered to be ready
at 0 o'clock. Hit'drove the men to Oarl-
son cottage. After a few minutes waiting
they came out witb it largo parcel, which
Wfli

and was then driven to the pier at the
Lake off Fullerton Avenuo, the intention
being to throw the trunk into deep
water. Some fishermen were encountered however, and it was decided to
drivo to the edge of thc water several
miles distant. Here, while recoiinoitor-
ing the lake front, a rural police officer
Questioned them, and being alarmed they
etermined to drive cityward again.
When passing thc hole the men ordered
him to stop, the trunk was taken out by
the two men and lifted Into the hole, it
was too large, however, to go iu, then
after telling him to drive on a few yards
they kicked in the side nnd deposited the
body in the basin. Woodruff thought nt
the time it was the corpse of a woman,
The trunk was lifted back into tbe wagon, bnt subsequently thrown into a
clump of bushes, where it wns found.
THEN HE DROVE THE MEN
to Lincoln Park, where they departed.
A loudbuzsirtg went through the court
room when the chief concluded, nud it
was renewed, when Coroner Hertz, holding up a small package, announced thai
he proposed to submit some of tlie
private papers of Cronin. He first
read two disDatches from New York, one
dated January 13th and signed J. T.
McMahon, requesting the doctor pre-
emptorilyto be at Westminster House
January 18th for a committee meeting
and the other January 18th, signed
Bonayr, i-aying: "Ordered by proper
authorities that yon Bend your report on
the trial." To this copy a reply was appended: " I note as 1 did at tbe trial;
Mackay has the reeordB." . Then came
the minority report, of thc Buffalo trial,
signed by McCaiiey, of Philadelphia,
and endorsed by Crouiu. This has also
been published, finally tho coroner submitted notes of evidence taken al this
trial; handwriting :bf deceased having
first been identified. In this document
objections were raised by Sullivan against
Cronin sitting on the committee were
slated nl length. The protest wus overruled by the statements of Barns, Rogers, McCahey and Cronin. One witness,
the name not given, (Cut supposed to be
Luke Dillonf testified that ho
was sent to England to do
active work. lie wns given four pounds
and steerage ticket. Ab soon as be
leached London he was called upon by
two men whom he believed to he Scotland Yard Detectives. He returned in
three months in the steerage, l.'pou his
arrival he was given "flO by oiie I lonovau, j
and objected I" the smallness of the
amount. He wus soon called upou to go
again, und to take another mnn with
him. One of the men who wns to help
him wns .I.J. Maroney. He was given
ifL'OO arid soon utter his arrival in London
tlie money gave out again. He was
called on by detectives. Here tbe notes
became fragmentary.
VERDICT OK THE JURY.
Death from violent mentis. That Cronin wns decoyed from his home on May
4, 1889, to Carlson Cottage, and there
murdered by being beaten on the bend
with a blunt instrument* Thnt the body
was afterwards placed in a cateh-basin
near Lnkeview, where it was discovered
May 22. Evidence shows that n plot wns
formed by n large number of persons to
murder said Cronin.. Said plot was deliberately executed. Wc are of the opinion that "no other pefrons except those
In the Society known as united Brotherhood or "Clan' na Gael," had any cause
to murder Cronin. Several witnesses
have testified unwillingly, and we find
that Dan Coughlin, Pat O'Sullivan. Alex.
Sullivan and AVoodruffe, alias Black,
were were either principals, or bad guiltv
knowledge of the conspiracy lo murder.
We believe many other persons were in
the conspiracy and should be held to
answer liefore Jury. We further state
that this murder is one of iho most bru-
tnl ever perpetrated, and recommend the
authorities to offer a large reward for
the discovery und conviction oi nil those
implicated. We further state that nil
secret societies, such ns "Clan nn Gael"
is proved to be, are not in harmony with,
and are injurious to Amorican institutions, and we hope that in future the vigi-
lanco of police will atone for past negligence.
Thirty warrants are being made out for
suspected accessories. Lecaron, the
English spy, is to be demanded under ex-
tradition,
Majority of those to be arrested are
prominent officers of Clan na Gael. Immediately on verdict being delivered,
sheriffs arrested Alex. Sullivan, the famous Nationalist, who had been perfectly
cool throughout the trial. He wae asleep
in bed at the time of arrest. He was up
and dressed in a few minutes. Sheriffs
then drove him to the county gaoi, where
he ivas placed in cell when Anarchists
were incarcerated.

bnt it has been learned late this evening
that the gentlemen mimed called at the
Department of Stale and tiled a petition
asking for a reference of the Jesuit Acts
to the Superior Court of Canada, under a
section of tin' law constituting the court.
The petition wus uecompunied by it certified cheque on the Hank of Montreal
here for $ii,0l'0. The petition wbh immediately laid before the Privy Council,
which was in session this afternoon.
The gentlemen also had an interview
with Sir John Macdonald. The following is the full text of the petition:
demoralize him. My illustration of
argument he fails to grasp; and my jocular remark in which tbe term woman
occurs he misconstrues. He cannot lie
accused of studying anything, not even
himself. It is conceded that the liquor
traffic is a great evil and his mode will
but intensify it. Dictation is not conviction—a quiet appeal to reason is more
effective. But we have to address ourselves to our audience—the public; and
our passage of words will not edify them.
Let us suppose that Mr. A has what is
called a bad boy and he uses harshness
and beating, Mr.  B lias a like boy and

MALICIOUS ATTACKS
Lie MEN.
UPON PUB-
If not  surprising, it  is certainly ludicrous to see—us we not infrequently do—
u mangy, yelping cur attempting to badger a hound of nobler breed and grander
proportions.   The gossips appear lo feast
on such n spectacle, otherwise we are utterly at a loss to comprehend the extreme
popularity of   an   ill-tempered and  ill-
mannered, if   not   ill-informed   article.
which lias recently appeared in an English magazine, on  the  Bismarck family.
The popularity of this article is said to
have rewarded those who published it,
and is certainly  not an evidence of  a
healthy condition of public taste.   A famous  English critic  writes:   "Without
its personality and without its mystery
it would be nothing; as it is, it is nothing but what every student of foreign
politics  knew long ago, seasoned at discretion,   or   rather  beyond   discretion,
witli all  the  Rismarckian backbiting of
Paris, Vienna,  St. Petersburg, and the
Opposition  Circles of  Germany."   We
have  frequently heard men  twitted by
their  opponents   with "being young;"
indeed, we have ourselves had to wince
under this grave  accusation.    Even in
this our very issue of to-day, appears u
letter on "lirst aid to the injured," purporting to be a reply to an article which
appeared in the Courier of yesterday, in
which the writer finds our callow and unsophisticated youth, a matter for more
or less  kindly badinage.    We   bitterly
regret that we are as yet unable to lay
claim to having seen say some  ninety
summers, nor are our facilities much impaired   by tlie lapse of  yenrs,  yet we
fondly think that we nre old enough to
have  learnt the  grand   lesson   which
seems beyond tlie mental capacity of so
many, vis., that unwarrantable, untruthful, and malicious attacks upon prominent and public men, invariably fnil in
effecting their purpose.   As in the case
of thc article lying before us, such ut-
tacjis from their very violence, do those
at  whom   they are aimed  no  ill turn
N'ny, on  the contrary, we
make the events which be relates appear
real to his young readers, the author
represents himself as continually mesmerizing a party of children, and causing
them, while in a mesmeric trance, to believe that they are actually present at
battles and other scenes of past days.
Accordingly lie begins with a minute description oi how, by means of discs and
passes, he gets his little friends, including "William, our boy in buttons," completely "under bis control," and goes
through the ordinary business of making
one believe that be is hot, another that
he is cold, nnd so on. Boys und girls are
imitative animals, and no parent, wbo is
not an absolute fool, will care to have an
amusement of this dangerous and unwholesome kind suggested to his children, It is a small mutter that the
author cannot curry out his own silly
trick consistently, and when lie is supposed to be describing events passing liefore his eyes, occasionally lnpses'from the
present to the past tense. He has attempted to write a sort of children's
Comic History of England, and is sure
that his little readers will find his book
"a big joke." The comic business is of
an abject description. Every child,
whose taste has not already been vitiated
by other books of a similar character,
will lie disgusted at finding the pretty
story of bow Blondin sought and found
his master degraded into trash about a
company of ': Blondinette minstrels"
who "resolved that for once they would
perform out of London," and went about
singing a topical song with references to
Irish evictions and Trafalgar Square
harangues, and u chorus of " toorali
toornli idity." The author's history is,
he assures us, "substantially correct."
We do not know how much he considers
is covered by his qualifying adverb, but
we do know that, if children learn
English history out of his book, they
will have some things to unlearn when
they grow older. Mr. Marillier'B illustrations are abundant, but do not, as a
rule, strike us as particularly successful.
betting bouses. There may lie some
good and sufficient reason which we are
unable to see for this apparently onesided legislation: if this is the case we
think it would be well for such 1 easons
to be given to the world, as we suspect
that more than ourselves fail to see why
" sauce for the goose should not also be
sauce for the gander."

From the London   Examinee  we  take
the following:
It is written that in feudal Japan and
perhaps even in the Japan of the revolution, harakirior self-disemboweling, is
an art in which every gentleman is carefully  practiced   from   his   youth.   The
historian's diction is a little at fault,   but
j his meaning is clear,  for harakiri is an
1 operation that no one can perform twice.
But every one may  have to perform   it
once, because every one guilty of an  un-
I pardonable offence against the laws of
I his country is expected to act as his own
I executioner.    In   that  case  the  State
I Officer waits upon the  culprit, suggests
with every form oi deference, the exped-

1 honor of looking on, 111 the   capacity  of
circles a reaction has already set in, in
favour of Prince Bismarck; n reaction [
which directly owes its origin to
the extreme violence of the attack
to which he has been subjected. That
the great German Chancellci und
his son do not pride themselves on
an effeminate chivalry of manners,
or an antiquated scrupulousness as to
means, is a very well known fact; it is
quite certain that, if you deal with the
Prince, you muBt give quid pro quo, and
had better look out with some sharpness
to see that you get the quo; but the horns
and tail Bismarck, is not a happy invention. The natural reaction from such
stupid spite may do Prince Bismarck
some good, and he is rather in  want of
second; and the polish and refinement of the preliminaries ure as nothing
to the grace with whicli the doomed man
cuts short the interview and his own
career, amidst a circle of admiringfriends.
Harakiri, however, is not always a mere
punishment for crime, and Mr. Mitford's
glorious tale of the Forty-seven Bonins
—who deliberately sacrificed themselves
to avenge the death of their chief—shows
that no true Japanese would hesitate to
undergo the happy despatch out of love
1 for a friend, loyalty to a superior, or for
tho good of his country.

Torting It frsiui  Evil  PstrpBB...
Every nook and corner of Chlckerlng
hall was occupied wben Felix Adler rose
to deliver kin torture on "The Struggle
Against Taanpt-rtren.'' The audience
listened to Mr. Adler with rapt attention
and at the conclusion of the address applauded loudly.
After the usual singing by the choir
Mr. Adler said that human desire was at
the bottom of nearly all the good and
evil In the world; the desire for knowl-
edge fostered tbe pursuit of science, the
desire for the beautiful had created tbe
arts, und virtue would be unknown if i
thero was uot within man a groping for
moral harmony.
"There are also within ua," he continued, "certain gross appetites and
cravings, und when these occupy the
field of the mind they crowd out the better thoughts and drown the soft, sweet
voice of virtue. The voice of duty has
been called still and small, and to hear it

When the sea fog creeps before you,

Then your heart, with longing mad,
Prays for him, your sailor lad;
All the woman rising, yearns
For the love the maiden spurns.
"Why not lovel" the wife replies;
"Naught in life yields 3weeter prize.
Love is lasting, Life is weary.

Pours the golden glamour o'er us,
Hallow, oil that Ue hefore us.
Tired hearts bave e'er confessed.

LIKE ONE LuNCt HOLIDAY.
Cadiz has long been associated with
the liberal movements in Spain, and has
been conspicuous during more than ono
crisis in Spanish affairs, In fact, tho
first inovemenpwhich overthrew Queen
Isabella took place in Cadiz, Sept. 17,
1808. Unlike most European cities, the
name of Cadiz is recognized by all countries. Wo get Vienna out of "Wlen,"
Lisbon out of "Llsboa," by what right I
do not know. The Spaniards write the
namo of the Quaker City "Filadelphla"
and New York "Nuovo-Yorko."
In an evening stroll upon the lovely
Alameda one has an excellent opportunity to observe the beauty of the Anda-
lusion women. Three parallel walks divide the people in their amusements aa
rigidly aa any mark of caste. In the
center is the promenade for tho uppei
classes and the military. On tho right
runs the walk of tho middle class, and on
tha left that of the peasantry and common soldiers. The young women were
all accompanied by duennas or chaperons. Here and there along tho Alameda
stood' n brilliant cafe. All the women
are dressed modestly in Parisian attire,
and their beauty is certainly oxtraordi-

term of imprisonment is adjudged to have
expired the district magistrate beseeches the
tutelary deity of the city to accompany bim

jail.—Cincinuuti Enquirer.
Uow the Farmer Is Plucked.
A farmer at Hood River shipped sixty
sacks of potatoes weighing about 100 pounds
each to this city a few days ago. Thopota
toes sold here for forty cents per 100 pounds,
the top prico. Tbe freight was thirty cent
per 100, the druyagc t wo cents, and commission two cents, which, with six cents for the
sacks, consumed tho entire proceeds of ths
sale, leaving the farmer not a cant for his
seed, tho labor of planting, cultivating,
harvesting aud shipping, which, as any one
knows who has hoed, dug and picked up pota
toes, ls no trifling matter.—Portland Ore-

Certain natural desires are best dealt
with by satisfying them, particularly in j
children, whose appetites are only sharpened for pleasure when lt Is denied them.
Many children, denied what Is perfectly :
legitimate in youth, particularly the
sous of clergymen, go to excesses the
moment thoy gain tlieir liberty,
"It is the normal rule to weaken desires by satisfying them, but thero are
certain desires which we cannot and
others which we must not gratify. No
desire is justified because it la natural, if
it interferes with higher considerations;
and all desire must be suppressed when
it does interfere with these considerations. The object of desire has power
over us in proportion as its mental image
Is sharply defined. Consequently, when
such desires do impress themselves upon
our mind, we must at once turn our
thoughts tn another direction,
"Human will ia free, let doubters say
i lie contrary, notwithstanding. This theory to the contrary is the outcome of obscure metaphysics. We must, nevertheless, understand Ihe limit* In which we
are free. Let no man believo that he
can harbor evil thoughts without being
the worse for it. Wo are, however, free
to throw off these thoughts when they
enter, and in making this effort lies our
redemption. This throwing oft must be
complete and immediate, else it only
leads to renewed moral degradation. We
must force our thoughts into a new
channel when evil ones assail us, but by
forbidding them we only make the desire moro intense. Jesus illustrates this
when ho says '("let ttao behind me,
Satan.'
"By some it is argued that this system
ls cowardly and that we should boldly
face evil. It is true that we ought to be
ablo to face it; but It is also true that
! wo aro unable to do so successfully.
| You hear of the great social sin, the
i moral filth of which ts spread over
our city. How can men who have
mothers and sisters forget the sanotity of
women and profit by this sin? It is desire that curses them and makes their
vision narrow, and they apologize for
themselves by saying that the desire is
natural. Weaklings all, ever ready to
appeal to nature. Let each man have a
task for himself throughout life, and
like Ulysses he will sail past the sirens
toward the shining goal.
"The two great helps toward this end
are Ihe society of good and true men,
and particularly that of cultivated and
refined women, and the.ldeal companionship of those loved ones who have passed
away.
"In the first we find those things which
we have been striving for taken for
granted, and in the second we can do
nothing wrong in the radiant beauty of
those sweet faces which have gone to the
life of Infinite peace." —New York
Herald.      	
-nna Ib Money.
Time well employed produces money
or an equivalent gain of some kind. Time
idled away or wasted away upon some
unnecessary or useless labors not only
yields no return, but represents a loss of
opportunity that cannot be replaced. One
may regain any other thing that lt squandered save time. Once gone, lt ts gone
for all eternity. No more Important lesson can be given to the young than that
on the value of time. It may be passed
by unheeded, for on this subject more
than any other men seem determined to
learn by experience; but warnings ihould
nevertheless be given, that there may be
as early an awakening as may be to the
irreparable loss of wasted time,
Even the beet of men arrived at middle age are sure to bave regrets for lost
opportunities, for wasted time. TJooMng
back with the knowledge gained by experience, they can see how muoh better
they might have ordered their lives If
they had made the best possible use of
their time. Such knowledge cannot be
expeoted in younger men. The time will
come when they, too, will look beck with
regret; but they should be given early
warning from the experience of others,
and be taught as well m may be that
time ts money, not In tbe vulgar tense,
but in that higher one which represents
money aa merely a symbol of things that
are good to have,—Baltimore inn.

THK FALLEN PINE,
The poets tell us of a period (it is always "a long time ago") when all the
animals conversed as well as sung, and
when—if we believe the immortal legends
—every created thing lin.l its expressive
tongue.
We are told that avail the very stones
had language audible and eloquent. The
Old Testament gives us morn than one
instance of tho time when what wo now
call the Inanimate spake in Instructive
tones.
The story of the trees who wanted u
king to rule over tliem isiunong themoet
interesting. There is another tradition
which, while it does not lie in the authority of the Scriptures, has scriptural fact
as Ub basts. Who is there that has not
heard the legend of the Aspen, which
received the curse of a perpetual palsy
because of Its refusal to bow Its head in
sorrow on the doleful day of the crucifixion, when all nature was In mourning?
The story of the Aspen is tlie story of
Pride. Let me tell you another—the
legend of the Fallen Pine. This, however, cannot claim a birth coeval with
creation or the crucfllxiou, for the impress of modern thought is seen in the
coinage of the tale.
Have you ever traveled over among
the Sierras, and have you ever listened
to tlie croonings of the old priestesses and
nuns there?
It will be a long time before iho lasl
vestiges of the early Spanish ecclesiasti-
otsm is gone from those regions in our
far west, whero llu missionaries halt
wasted heroic lives, cspeciallyin the sunset lands of the Now World. But lam
not sure that what I am about to relate
comes from the pious exile from the
mother country. But where did the
"good mother" who related it to mo receive it?
Listen to the legend, though if you
have traveled in tho Sierras you may
have heard the story there:
There ie, by a wayside, a great fallen
pine. Yousee in the slopes ofthe Sierras
many of its companions—pines (not redwood) with a girth of more than thirty
feet at your height above their base. At
the foot of this prostrate monarch, its
near companion of centuries ago, there
still stands a mighty oak, tossing il:;
brawny, mossy arms lo tho sky. It stand.
a vigil, perhaps now neither sorrowing
nor exulting. If you enter the littli
cabin near by the "good mother," though
it may be that she has never been a real
mother at all, earning her title by deed,
of devotion, heroism and sacrifice, aiul
wo might therefore say that the "anciem
maiden" there will tell you; not like th
story monger at Waterloo who rehears,
for a sou the affair there to the gre;i
historian of "Les Miserablea," but wiil
recount to you the long, long quarr.
betwixt the pine and the oak. As you
may never travel there, or peihaps tbe
old croon is thero no more, for it ha
been yean since I was there, I will there
fore tell you the story as it came tome:
It waa many and many years ago tho
tho pine and the oak sprang up then-.
side by aide. They grew together lov-
iugly and happily until they had passed
the period of their "teens," as the world
expresses it. At length, and when, io
the language of tho modern pen, thoj
began to hear the gossip of tho world
when thay heard of "society," when
they heard of tbe jealousies anion.
neighboring beauties, and the contrasting of the virtues of trees, then ii
waa that troubles began. The winds that
came from far off seas (for it ls a stormy
country there) tossed their branches together, and the "family jars" may be
said to have then commenced in earnest.
The harsh wood of the oak rubbed
against the tender pine, and white blood
ran from the open veins. "You are be-
oomlng too familiar over there!" It was
the pine tbat spoke thus, while tho oak
replied:
"Pooh! your smell is disagreeable, and
that vile blood of yours has defiled my
fingers!"
"You are a cross vixcu; don't scratch
me to," the pine now complained.
The olouds wept und with their tears
washed the wounds of the pine. But
they could not blot out the memory of
the ugly words spoken.
Every time the winds came, and they
came frequently, for it is, as I have snid,
a stormy oountry there—every time tho
winds came tho wrangles were renewed,
and the bitter and reproachful cotuplnin-
Ing words would como again.
The pine called the oak an obstinate
and cruel neighbor, vowing he would no
longer live by bis side. Hear his resolution*!
"I am going to leave you; I shall grow
far away from you;" and forthwith IhG
pine turned his head away iu disdainful
pride. He grew away from the oak. tie
grew rapidly—far more so than his neighbor—and was soon high up inthesky, his
branches leaning tar and anxiously to
the morning light. He wafted back, il
la said, this farewell to tho oak: "Good-
by, Sorub! You can ecratcb my face
no morel"
From this time ou It was a war of
words only, for the brandies of the pine
grew further and further away. The
pine boasted af his virtues, and of tin

Good-by, Scrub!"
The oak was piqued and wounde.l to
ihe core.    He shouted up to the pine:
"I don't care what you say about niel
i know I am prized above you for my
noblo qualities of strength and toughness
nnd weight."
"You boast of youi virtues, you clumsy
thing!" retorted the pine. "You say you
are useful, while I am not only useful
but ! am ornamental—a joy in the world.
I am light of weight; am easily wrought.
I travel over all the earth; am found in
every placo and in every man:-ion under
the sun, especially where there is a toy
that delights the eye or tbe heart of
childhood."
"Yes," quickly responded the oak,
"but 1 make the vessels that bear you in
your journeys over the pea."
"Bah!" said tbo pine, "you lie hidden
away under the waters while I ride high
above you in the heavens. You are a
very 'beast of burden,' and without me
there would be no mast, no spar. Furthermore, as I am above the waters, with
my eyes I nee all the gay fashions of the
world I"
"Fashions l'orsoothl" Baid tho oak. "1
tciiow the fashions, fori wear them three
times a year, while you, like a poor
prude, have the samo unvarying dress
thewbole yearround—thatolu fashioned
frock which you cannot change!"
This remark st img tho pino to tho very
heart. There Is no one who likes to have
his or ber garments criticised—"made
fuuof," sOtOBpeak. The pine flung back
this in reply:
"You nro a booby; you are a fickle.
fadey thing; yuur colors soon change."
"Oh, yes," said tho oak, "1 know I
change my livery; I get a new gurmout
everj year, fresh anil beautiful, from the
great milliner, Nature; and oven if my
old clothing does fade, tbe world says that
in the sober seasons of the year my garb
is lovely and becoming."
And the pine continued to grow further
and further away with its branches.
The oak stood leafless and trembling in
ibo winter's cold, whilo tho gay neighbor
was rejoicing in Its evergreen splendor,
as it saw tho ninny scions of its family
around the varied mansious of earth-
ornaments of a fadeless type.
The oak cast his eye downward and
beheld the rich wealth at hie feet.
"Whom do you feed?" he cried, as ho
saw tho great harvest of acorns scattered
around, and upon which tho beasts of
tho field ancl fowls of the air were feasting and fattening.
"I feed tiiesick!" replied the pine with
a sigh. "Not only this, but the very
ships which you Ixiast of making, all re-
ceive a coating thut comes from me."
Then the oak said: "If you do feed
the sick, I warm a nd comfort the poor,
the peasant and the princo alike."
"Yes, and I embellish the world even
with so poor a thing as the smoke that 1
send away," Impatiently retorted the
pine.
And so tbey continued to boast and to
quarrel ns the yeara ran on. I need not
toll you all that tbe good mother recounted to me of the long, long troubles
between those neighbors. But the pine
grew further and further away, its
branches gathering weight with every
| summer sun. Again tho storms came—
1 for I have told you it was a stormy coun-
I try there among the Sierras—and the
j autumn's rain had pelted the earth and
| tlio forest with long mid steadfast fury.
"Seo how I defy even the blasts ol
winterl" exultantly cried out the pine:
j the  winds  that   rushed   through   his
j branches were beard only in sighs and
moans.
The oak, with his shorn limbs, stood
trembling, while the fierce tempest
came; its fury passed by, and the oak
waved in obeisance. But the proud
pine, with heavy mantle and crown
high in the heavens, Ms hold on thi
earth weakened by the softening wtntei
rains, and leaning far away from thi
line of rectitudo in his efforts to avoid
tho oak. But I need not tell the story
further—for lo! tha pine is fallen!
And tbe good mother will tell you, as
the moral of her song, that the story ol
the pine is also tho story of pride,—M.

Verbal Slip..
The verbal Blips that a preacher or lecturer Inadvertently makes are often remembered long after every thought in
bis address haa been forgotten. They
nro often laughably fuunj-.
A lecturer said: "I must beg you to
givo me your undivided attention; indeed, it is absolutely impossible that you
could form a true idea of tbe hideous
animal of vfhicli we are about to speak
unless you keep your eyes on me."
A certain preacher, discoursing upon
Buuyan and his works, caused a titter
among his hearers by exclaiming: "In
these days, my brethren, we want more
Btinyans."
Another clergyman, pleading earnestly
with his parishioners for the construction
of a cemetery for their parish, asked
them to consider tbo "deplorable condition of 80,000 Christian Englishmen living without Christian burial."
Still more curious was another clerical
slip. A gentleman said to a minister:
"When do you expect to seo Deacon S.
again*"1 "Never," said tho reverend gentleman, solemnly, "the deacon Is in
heaven."   Ueboboth Herald.
Origin »!' tbe  Dog.
The niu'stion of tho origin of the dog
has recently been discussed by Professor
Nehring, who believes that it has descended from various still surviving
species of wolves and jackals. Tlie latter
animals can be tuned, and many attempts to domesticate wolves havo been
successfully made In modern times. Herr
Rongo has bo completely tamed, a young
wolf that it follows bim exactly as a dog
might do.—Frank Lesllo's Newspaper.

Tbe statutory meeting ofthe new Vancouver Coal Mining and Land Company,
Limited, was held nt 12 Old Jewry Cham-

May. Mr. John Galsworthy, who presided, said tbuttbe new company was incorporated on January oOth last, and on
February 28th the reconstruction resolution xvas coniirmed, and from that date
all tin- nroperty and prolits of tbe old
company passed to the new company.
Up to the present time 181,470 shares in
tbe new company bad been applied for
and allotted, having very few outstanding. The ellect of the reconstruction bad
been to give tbem linger powers, which
was important in regard to the proposed
sale of the properly t" Messrs. Rosen-
feldB' executors', because tbey were now
In a position to dispose of the unilertuk-
ing to tbem without any questions rising
us to their power. The directors had set j
aside an amount ol profit which came
[rem the old company to pay 2'., per'
cent, on June 24th, which wus in addition to the dividend of 20s per share
which was paid last December, i
Under the reconstruction scheme also j
the balance sheet would be in a much
more healthy condition than it bad been i
for many years past. He added that the
output from the mines for this year wus
better than it-over had been.

Chan Ah  Heung, who murdered  the
•Chinese girl in Fisgnrd street, Victoria,
committed suicide by hanging himself in
.his cell.   Deceased rolled the blankets off
his boil into as large a package as possible
and then adjusted the cord, whicli he I
had previously fastened above the door, I
around his neck, after whicli he deliber-'
atcly kicked the roll of blankets from tin-!
Mer his feet and strangled to death.
One of the turnkeys went to the cell to j
remove his supper dishes, and bearing ;
no noise   inBide the cell   reported the j
matter to Mr. Muldon, the head turnkey,
who came at once and  cut  down  the
body.   The convict's eyes   still   moved!
■ and his heart  beat slightly, but though
everything possible was   done   by   llr. i
MacNaugbtoii .loncs and tbe turnkey to
restore life, it was without avail.

room for n few momenta to sec a mnn ,
who was intending to go lo Vancouver I
on the steamer Dunsniiiir, and during
his absence it is claimed that "Hank"
stole the coats off a nail. Mr. Wilcox
went to pill on one of the coats and dis-
covered they were missing. He immediately went to the police station to inform the police of hiB loss. A short time
afterwards some boys said they had seen
Hank lying under the Methodist Church,
and Constable O'Connell repaired there
immediately only to find the bird flown,
but discovered the coats.
The prisoner was arrested shortly afterwards and lodged in jail.

Inaccurate Report.
Our contemporary, the Free Press,
in its report last evening of the meeting
to organize a Seattle relief fund Ib guilty
of a slight inaccuracy. When the representative of the F. P. expressed his
willingness to insert thc subscription list
free of charge if the Courier would do
tlie same, it was the responsible representative of the latter paper, and not Dr.
Praeger, who replied in the affirmative in
its behalf. Dr. Praeger merely said that
tliey had no reason to doubt the willingness of the Courier to do as Mr. Norris
suggested, seeing the course that paper
had already adopted towards the matter
in hand.
