A resident of the Alberni road was
somewhat surprised to find one mornine
la»t week, a snare stretched across the
Alberni road opposite his premises. It
bad been set there during the night by a
lltnb of the law from Alberni, to capture (i
fugitive from justice. Tbo game, however, dill not happen to pass that way,
nnd the wilv constable had not the pleasure of testing the utility of his invention.
Previous to bis applying for n| patent, il
would have been advisable for him to
have procured the rope before learing Alberni, und not to have depended on borrowing it on this side of Ibe mountains.

THE VALUE Or VACCINATION.
London, April 5.—In the Commons
this evening James A. Ficton, member
from Leicester, moved thst a commission
be appointed to inquire into tbe operations of the Compulsory Vaccination Act,
Mr. Picten contended that vaccination
was not a certain preventative of smallpox, while it undoubtedly spread other
diseases. Charles T. Ritchie, president
of the local government board, would assent to the appointment of such a commissi™, believing that an inquiry would
result in dispelling all doubt as to tbe
value of vaccination.

IlOl'I.ANOKIl A PRETENDER.
Berlin, April 5.—Tho North German

The modes of death's approach are various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
lhat everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tulwrcle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in thc throal and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to the lungs
producing Consumption nnd to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
death. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go withou
life. As soon as you feel that sjrue.nlng 1

j lege.    lie pronounceilan articleinThursday's  Colonist,   headed   "The Precious
Metals Case" a mistatement of facts.
.Mr Biggins also rose toa  question  of
privilege and read  from  an Ottawa des-
j patch in the  Standard  and Colonist, in
j which   Mr. Mara,   M.I'.   for  Yale was
represented as taking steps to secure an
: exchange of land in the 20 mile  belt  for
lands on  the Peace River district.   He
i would not insult the local government by
even insinuating that they would be a
parly to such a bargain, especially since
I tbe decision of tlie privy council which
gave the mineral in tho belt to the province.
THE  WOOLLEN MILL  SORTS.
Mr. Ladner asked.—Has the Woollen

not, why not?
Hon. Mr. Robson—N#, becauss th#
conditions have not been complied with.
The amount of the subsidy is |3,000.
MUNICIPALITIES BILL.
The third reading of this bill is set down
for next sitting of the House,
CANADtAN WESTERN AND CBNTEAL RT.
The House went into committee te consider the bill to grant aland subsidy to
the Canadian Western and Central Rail-
way Co.
.Mr. Semlin said he wns not in favor of
the bill. The lime was fast approaching
a hen the people would decree that the
alienation of public lands must stop.
Hon. Mr. Humphreys said the days of
mules and pack (rains were gone, and
railways were necessary to open up the
country, lie thought the proposed line
would open up the country more than the
('. P. li.    (Applause)
Mr. Higgins thought lhat this was tbe
most important measure that had come
before the House since be bad had the
honor to occupy a seat on the lloor. The
ultimata object of the company is to cross
the Seymour Narrows with a bridge, but
their present intention is to connect tbe
northern terminus of the Island railway,
when it shall be extended to Comox, with
IHter Cave in Comox district; thence by
ferry 15 miles in length to a harbor known
as Frederick's Arm. The difficulties ef
thc railway are not so great as those that
lay in the path of the C. P. R. Some 350
miles of the Manitoba and Northwestern
Railway Company's road have been constructed already, and they are pushing on
towards tbo Yellow Head Puss. It. is
with this line that the Canadian Western
Company intends to connect. The grant
Is to be given in alternate sections.
Mr. Martin considered the bill anjust as
it gave up a considerable portion ofthe
public property to private enterprise.
Mr. I Iru'nt said that in his opinion the
opening up of a new rond from Fast to
West would make British Columbia a
country far surpassing tlie most sanguine
expectations of any of her pioneers.
lion. Mr. Dunsmuir said bo was in no
way connected with the proposed road,
but he would support it.
Mr. Fry thought the road would have
to have American connections to prove a
success. 1 Ie thought it was n very cheap
way to get n railwav, by simple giving tlio
land.
Mr. T. Davie said, we are parting with
12,000,000 acres of land, it is true, but at
the same lime we are gaining 12,000,009
acres ourselves. Thc area of Canada is
larger than tbnt ofthe United States;
yet the latter has four transcontinental
roads, whilst Canada has only one. Mr.
Davie spoke at great length on the subject of the capabilities of Canada in the
wheat-growing respect, comparing it very
favorably with the United States. He
predicted a bright future for Canada in
the event of the carrying out of the
scheme before the House.
The second reading wns carried by a
majority of 1" to 3.

WHAT CANADIANS   DRINK.
It is the custom of the commissioner
Oi inland revenue te publish yearly a table showing what quasti-
ties of liquor nnd tobacco paying excise
duties, are taken for consumption in each
of the provinces ef Canada. The sheet containing the table was published this year
as usual with the inland revenue report.
Accrdlng to the statement the consump-
ion of the spirits during the fiscal year
1888 was:
Ontario 3.5-1000 of a sal. per head
Quebec 727— :' ,''       ,\
New B.UBSvdck 515—
Nova Scotia 3'3— " "       "
P. E.Iilanil .238- " ''
Manitoba and N. W 275— " "
British Columbia 1.600— " "       "
Dominion 450— " "       "
The consumption of beer was in Ontario
4 910 gallon per head, Quebec 2 0 10,
New Brunswick, 9 10, No»a Scotia, 9 10,
Prince Edward Island 3 10, Manitoba and
the Northwest 1 7 10, British Columbia
6 7 10, and fer tbe whole of Canada B_f
gallons per bead. The people of Ontario
are credited with the consumption of one
gallon cf wine for every 40 persons, Quebec one for every 4, New Brunswick one
for every 28, Nova Scotia, one for every
26, Prince Edward Island one for every
111, Manitoba one for every 30, British
Columbia a little over a gallon for each
5 persons. It takes 10 persons the Dominion over to use a gallon of wine.
So it appears on the face of tbe returns,
but a considerable quantity of liquor pays
duty In ene province and is consumed in
another, se that while the return may be
an approximate statement it is not exactly
u correct test of thc relative sobriety of
the provinces. The return covers many
years, and If liquors were always consumed in the same year that they paid duty
it would afford a test ot the changes that
take place in the drinking habits of the
people.
It is not a safe criterion as between successive years, but at tbe same causes for
taking exceptionally large or small quantities of liquor out of bond seldom exist
for two concurrent years, the statement
when covering a considerable period affords nfsir test.
V-e following statement shows the
Quantity of various kinds of llqu"- taken
for consumption on the whole of Canada
for each year since 1875:

Missouri, Ohio nnd Illinois, are taking action to substitute this method for the old
hanging process. The prejudice against
the gallows is very great.

The fact that for three successive years
the consumption of spirits has been not
much over two-thirds of the average consumption of the thirteen years, may, we
think, be taken as fairly conclusive of a
decay in spirit drinking. The same may
be said of wine, while there lias been a
steady increase in the use of beer.
THE POSTAGE CHANGES.
Postmaster General Haggarl in his recommendations for a change in the postal
system of tbe Dominion proposes to increase the weight ef tho three-cent letter
to double the present allowance, and to
raise the postngo on drop letters from one
cent to two. Two cents is the rate
charged in tbe United States for drop letters ns well bb otheis. Our Postoflico
Department carries letters for thousands
of Biles for tho same sum ns twenty
miles, but so does that of the United
States. Wc presume as soon as the reduction in the postoffice deficits justify
the change the ordinary rate will be reduced from threo cents to two, so that
the postage on all letters will be tho same.
It is stated iu an Ottawa dispatch that the
■ew regulations w ill take nn additional
$100,000 a year out of the people, but we
do not see it in that light. From the returns issued it appears that the postage
receipts are increasing faster in proportion than the postoffice expenditure, but
the service still costs more than it brings
in by nearly a million a year. In other
words, the people who mail the letters
pay some two-thirds of the cost of carrying them, and all the people are taxed to
pay the other third. The additional
$100,000, or whatever the amont may be,
will be paid by those who mail (hep letters, and will relieve the people ol that
much tar in other forniB.

In the memoirs of Karatygin, the
famous Russian actor, there is the following anecdote of the Emperor
Nicholas:
His Majesty happened one day te j
be engaged in inspecting a State peni-j
tentiary in ene of the provincial seals
of government, and look it into his
head to question some of the convicts
respecting the nature of the offences
for which they were suffering punishment.
What are you here for?" he asked
ef one.
"I am innocent, Imperial Majesty,"
replied the prisoner, falling on his
knees; a victim of false witness. A
church robbed—a beadle knocked on
the head—the peasants csught hold of
rae; and I knew nothing about it."
Turning to another the Czar asked :

A  STOKER'S LIFE.
Passengers on an ocean steamer
know little about the lives of thi*
stokers who shovel coal into the ship's
furnaces.
"Crossing over in a steamer of th.
Cunard Line one summer," says a cor
respondent, "I was leaning on th<
starboard bow one evening, when r
black figure came out of some hnh:
which leads tn the dark r-gions below
all the decks, nnd 1 anr-d over thc rail
near me.
"He looked like an imp from the
kingdom of Pluto. He had on an indescribable suit of clothes, if it may
be called a suit, and he wai actually
dripping with black sweat.
"There was something very mournful and yet resigned in the man's face
whose red eyes looked out from the i-
sooty framework like two partially extinguished coals.
"We were soon chatting freely; tha
"False Witness again, Imperial
Majesty. Pedlar was done for close
to my house. I never even dreamt of
such 1 ihing."
"And you?" said ihe Emperor
Nicholas to a third.
"Sheer malire,  sire.    One of my
neighbors conveyed  a lot of forged
notes into my pockets, and hid away a
lithographic stone in mv bedroom.    I
was as innocent as an  unborn babe."
The Emperor, obviously  bored   by
t'lese successive protestations of guilt-
l ssness. cast n tr'anoe along the line of j
pri'c^-e-   until   Ms v   Ml  npon  a
rngg-d, wretched-looking gipsy, whom
he beckoned  forward with the words:
"Of course,  yon,  too, are here on a
false charge ?"
"Not a bit of it, your Majesty,"
1 r"pli.d the Tsigan. "It's all fair and
square so far as 1.1111 concerned. I

ffrfttulatfns you upon the wide-spread repue
tation  this justly esteemed medicine, Dr, J,
Collis  .Irowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
iiself,  not only in Ilindost.in,   hut all over
Ihe East.     As a remedy of general utility,
we iniieli question  whether a better i-im.
ported Into the country,  and we shall lie
ijlail  to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home.   The other brands,  we
are happy lo say, arc now relegated  to the
native baraars, and judging from Iheir sale,
we   fancy   their  sojurn   there   will be but
evanescent.   Wc   could multiply instances
infinitum  of the  extraordinary   efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhoea
and   2nd    Dysentery    Spasms,     Cramps,
Neuralgia, Ihe Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as     general  Sedative,   that have oessrred

years.   In Choleraic Diarrhoea, aad eves Id
thc  more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
) have wilnesscd its controlling power.     We
1 have never used iny other form  af this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from s firm
conviction  that it is decidedly tbe best, so.
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro!
fession   and   the   public,   as   we are ef tbe
opinion  Inat the substitution af any other
than Collis Browne's, is A  DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART

Won't go !—The recently ejected ilemi-
mondaines of this city, have decided not
to leave their old stand on the Comox
road. They are having the house newly

city.
M. W. Dmow_i_,E_'J_.P.P. D__d.-M.
W. Dingwall, ex-M.P.P. for Comox, died
at Comox on Wednesday, of heart affection. Mr. Dingwall was a candidate for
Comox at the last election, but was defeated by Hon. T. Humphreys.
Mens Goons.—Mr. T. L. Browne, opened his new store on Victoria Crescent yesterday. He has .1 fine stock of men's
yoods and the male biped will do well to
visit him. If a rush of business uicniis
anything Mr. Browne has jrot there,
. Foe Texada.—W. C Halloek left fnr
Texada last night by the steamer Rustler. Mr. llalleck goes to look the island
over in the interests of a number of capitalists. He will also act as special correspondent for the C'ot'RiKit, and our
readers will have an opportunity of judging of what Texada contains from an actual observer. Mr. Halleek will probably
be absent aliout two weeks.
Kemtctioh Worm—We understand
that a movement is on font, for the establishment of Reduction Works for the
smeltine off/old and silver ores. Tt is
proposed to form a ininl stock compnnv,
with a capital of $100.00(1 for this purpose.
Several outside capitalists are interested
In the scheme, and we may expect before
many months to have the works in full
operation, The discovery of gold, silver
snd capper ores on Texmia Island, has no
deubt, been largely instrumental in causing the present movement to be set nn
foot. Nanaimo lias unexcelled facilities
for the establishment of numbers of industrial enterprises, and we believe that
the proposed undertaking is a most hopeful eign that the city is awakenine to a
due sense of its importance as a future
manufacturing centre. We can't have too
many new industries started in our midst.
Out ox Bait..—Mr. Frank McQuillon,
•who has been in custody in this city for
the last few days, accused of incendiarism, was released on bail yesterdav. Mr.
McQuillon furnished bail himself to the
anaeunt of $1,400. and Messrs. J. Paw-
eon, J. Abrams, T. Davis and M. King
went security, each for the sum of H350.
Mr. Eberts, of Eherts & Taylor, made an
application yesterday to Mr. Justice Crease
for the prisoner to be released on bail.
His Lordship remarked that it was customary for the depositions to be sent with
the prisoner, and as the mail did nnt
leave Alberni till Tuesday mnrning.severnl
hours after the conclusion of the trial, it
appeared to him as if the delay miuht
have ljeen construed ns being intentional,
r '. having for iU object tbe keeping of
Mr. McQuillon in jui' for at ler1* 1 week.
Only one of the magit.1 rates hud signed
the commitment, the other one objecting
to do so. His Lordship said that, taking
these things into consideration, he would
allow the prisoner out on bail. Mr.
Eberts said that McQuillon desired a
speedy trial, but owing to the absence of
the, depositions that would be impossible.
News From the North.—Mr. M. King,
the loggeron Valdez Island, arrived yesterday by the steamer Dunsmuir. He
says things nre booming in his line. He
has 24 men at. work and commenced hauling last Monday. Mr. King also brought,
news ef an exciting and very nearly fatal
adventure that an Indian, Quookaister.
chief ef the Cape Mudge Indians, had with
a black bear. It seems the Indian was
armed with an old muzzle leading gun
when he first spied a bear with cubs, antl
without thinking twice, he let drive at
her. The shot took effect on the bear's
jaw, breaking it. The hear then concluded
to come to close tjuarlers and settle the
thing at once, which she proceeded lo do.
Sho first of all took off the Indian's upper
lip and then clawed him down tlie side of
the face. Being satisfied wilh her operations on his upper story, sho turned her
attention to his chest which she partially
caved in, and then took off part of the
muscle ef his arm. By this time Quock-
Sister decided it was time for him to leave,
and as he and the bear had mutually
Sgreed to take a short breathing spare, he
made use of the time to start on his homeward journey. The bear divining his intention endeavored to stop him by reaching out and clawing him, but the Indian's
clothes (and he hadn't many) would not
stand the strain and gave way. The Indian proved loo fast for Ihe bear, and arrived home clothed only in his native
modesty. Subsequently his son captured
one of the cubs which ia still in captivity
at Cape Mudge. Mr. King reports things
very lively at Comox. The cause is as
usual, Texada.

substantial business men nf your cily can,
and will, substantiate this statement, but
the base Insinuation nf my doing a dishonest business, I shall most assuredly
deny.
Now, as for the lady who paid $800 for
a monument thai could be bought at
Henderson's for $225, It is entirely false,
as Mr. Henderson has no Scotch granite
in stock; neither has he ever handled
nny; neither has the "Old Man of the
Mountain" seen the design 1 neither has
Mr. Henderson, much less having any
such monument, in stock or any such design. I do not wish to criticize Mr. Henderson nor his work. But how can Mr.
Henderson quote prices on designs he has
not seen nor knows anything about'.' But
I suppose it is excusable in the "Old Man
of the Mountain," who seems to reason
thus: that it may he possible for effect to
equal the cause, thus in his pitiable conceit he believes he is equal to his Creator;
thus, being equal with his Creator, he has
an all-seeing eye and is omnipotent; thus,
I suppose, 1 must consider ita condescension, and, verilv, great is the condescension thereof, that such a great being
should notice a poor tombstone'peddler,

opened court at 11 a.m., and asked why

Mr. Seoular, solicitor for Mrs. Fiddick,
said be had left word with that lady to
appear at 10 a.m., but he had since heard
that on* of her daughters was ill, and that
would probably account for her absence.
