IMPORTANT   I1ECIISION   IS BK ORKJOK   SWAMP
LANDS.
Washington, Mny 22.—Assistant Secretary Chandler nnd Assistant Attorney-
General Shields to-day heard arguments
made by counsel for tbe State of Oregon
to review the decision of Secretary Villus,
adverse to the State ef Oregon in whut
nre known ub tbe Oregon Swamp Lands
cases. The amount of the land involved
is 87,tt41 acres. The case is one of long
standing in tbe Interior Department. So
long ago ns September, 1882, Secretary
Teller, on the reports of the field ngentB,
directed that the land in question be
certified to the State of Oregon as swamp
land. The motion was set aside. This
certification was thade fbefore Secretary
Lamar. An examination ofthe land was
made, and reports showed . some of-thc
land represented as swamp "and was rock
ribbed mountain land, other timber
land, etc. Without making a decision,
Mr. Lamar went out of oflice, und Mr.
Villas became Secretary of the interior.
He directed a re-examination, und upon
reports made to hiin, directed the
original certification to lie set aside, and
ordered that such land as was found to
be Swamp land be certified to the State
of Oregon as such, and such lands as
were found arable or timber land be restored to the public domain. Under this
decision about 12,000 acres were restored
to the public domain. U

1NHKIUKI)  ITALIAN   MINER*.
P.raidwood, III., May 22.—An infuriated
nnili of armed Italians from lhe,*,cighla->i-
ing collieries marie tlieir appearance tit
the mines ol tlie Chicago and Wellington
Coul Company this morning und prevented the colliers trotii resinning work. \
Thtu threatened to kill anybody who
"scabbed," and also to burn the shitlte.
The mob numbered aliout 800, und thei
rioters were armed with double barrelled
shotguns, repeating rifles and Htolvetft.
Mavor Corry, who is also SupenntendH|
of the Chicago, Wilmington and Vermillion Coal Company, ordered the rioters
off the premises. They refused to go,
and toltl Cony that he would be riddled
with bullets if he nppeared at the shaft
again. Corry then called upon the
Sheriff to protect him. Mr. Sweet,
President ot the Company, und toe
Sheriff are in eoniinunitntion with the
State Authorities. If the mob refuses to
obey the Sheriff's order to disperse tomorrow, the State Militia will probably
be called out. The fact that the miners
have agreed to work at a reduction while
the men in tbe adjacent collieries axe on
strike, is bound to cause trouble, unless
the authorities protect the men while
they work.
San Francisco. May 22.—Joe McAuliffe,
ex-champion heavy weight of the Pacific
Coast, and Tom Lees, ex-champion of
Australia, bulb of whom have been defeated by Peter Jackson, fought for a
purse of fifteen hundred dollars at the
tiolilfii I Jute Athletic Club this evening.
LetM wus the first to appear iu Ibe ring
at 9:89, and McAuliffe, who weighed
about BU pounds heavier, lire minutes
later.   Time was called at 11:62.
First Round—McAulille led wilb bis
left, but fell short. After a few seconds'
feinting McAuliffe chased Iaics to the
ropes and knocked bim over. When be
arose bis nose was bleeding,
Second Round—McAuliffe came to the
scratch with wickedness in bis eyes, uud
went hotly ut the Australian, pursuing
him around the ring. Smash went Joe's
rigid, then bis left.    Lees put on an  ap-
pearanoe of fright and belpleenesss and
hugged bis own head, while McAuliffe
kept painmelling him. He wus alreadv
a clefeated man.
Third Round—Lees came up with a
semblance of fighting, but kept out of the
Californian's way as much as possible.
The latter wns waiting to get in a knockout blow. Some warm infighting now
took place; Lees, oi course, getting the
worst of it.
Fourth Round — The minute's rest
freshened Lees, nnd he did better work.
This caused McAuliffe to give a better
account of himself, and he landed eight
times in succcession on Lees' stomach
and face, without the latter getting in
once on bim.
Fifth Round—There was nothing of
importance in this round. McAulille,
however, did all the work.
Sixth Round—Lees wus entirely at
Joe's mercy who was, however, unable
to get in n knocker out.
Seventh Roumi—McAulille kept pummelling Lees hotly, and at the end of the
round Lees was very weak on his "pins."
The end was not far.
Eight Round—A terrific right-hander
on Lees stomach sent him flving againBt
the ropes, and to the floor.' He got up
•quickly and ran from McAuliffe, the latter after him, and getting him in his own
corner held bim there, and put the finish
ing touches on him, smashing him wher
ever he pleased, and finally knocking
him out,

THB  I'AltNELL  COMMISSION.
London, May 22.—The consultation
whicli was held" yesterday lietweeu the
Judges of the Parnell Commission and
Mr. Parnell und the solicitors Davis and
Reid, resulted in the conclusion of au
arrangement greatly abridging the evidence to be introduced by the Parnellites,
and consequently shortening the session
of the Commissioners several weeks under the time estimated by tbe defense as
the minimum period which they would
occupy in presenting the case. The testimony of Mr. O'Brien will be concluded
to-morrow, after which a few witnesses
will be brought forward to testify
as to the alleged outrages in Clare, The
testimony of these witnesses will require
but a short time, uud will be followed by
the evidence of Mr. Matthew Harris,
M. P. for KastUalway. After Mr. Harris,
Archbishop Crokc, Canon Keller, and
Father Shelly will be called and the evidence will be concluded with the examination of Michael Davitt. It is under-
Stood that Mr. Davitt will make some
very important revelations and explanations, and it is therefore regarded as
fitting that lie should he the last witness
called, thus leaving his statements freBh
in the minds of the occupants of the
Bench.
Mr. Reed read nn article from Mr,
O'Brien's paper, the United Ireland, denouncing Phu'iiix Park murderers. Mr.
O'Brien said that the Government should
pursue a policy of conciliation and thus
obtain the sympathies of the people.
The Government in 1882 suppressed the
United Ireland because witness bad
charged the ministry with having manufactured crime, a charge he was prepared
to prove. O'Brien then proceeded to
detail alleged manufactured outrages,
but Sir Richard Webster objected, and
the court sustained his objections.
Brussels, May 22.—Serious strikes are

Montreal, May 22.—The steamship
Polynesian (Allan liner) which left this
morning, was steaming slowly down the
Varennes Channel, when, owing to some
unexplained cause, she came into collision with the Cynthia, bound inward.

as to cause her to founder almost immediately. Tlie crew—the Cynthia had
no passengers aboard—on and below
deck, had barely time to jump overboard
nnd swim ashore. Cargo of Cynthia
'Glasgow; mainly pig iron, Eight men
drowned, ull of Glasgow. Polynesian
proceeded on her way after colli.ion.
without shipping to render assistance.
The officers of the vessel refuse to be
interviewed, but the pilot lays thc blame
of the collision on the Cynthia. Two or
three of the Polynesian's crew were
badly injured. One of the Cynthia's
crew, named James Law, supiiosed to be
drowned, jumped on the Polynesian and
was saved. A hole wits smashed iu the
Polynesian's starlmard bow 20 feet in
diameter, her fore compartment was full
of water.

LETTERS TO THE EDIT0E,
Editor Courier:—What is the matter
with onr city bye-laws. I think there is
a swine and goat bye-law. Why in the
name of goodness is it not enforced? If
anything is n nuisance 1 think it is the
goats running at large. If you should
forget to fasten your garden gate for
about five minutes, you find that the
goats have made a raid on your apple
trees nnd are tearing off the bark for fun,
after filling themselves with vegetables
that you have been trying to grow, but
find it of no use as they arc destroyed
when tbey are about half grown. I
would certainly like to know why this
should lie allowed. Such a nuisance us
this would not be tolerated iu any other
city. Then on the wr.ter side of Commercial street and Victoria Crescent on a
hot tiny it is sometuing dreadful to pass.
I do not wonder that we have so much
sickness. Still there aro bye-laws to prevent this kind of thing lam told, and, if
so, why are they not carried out 1
should like to know.      A Ratepayer.
Editor Courier :—Sir, I was very glad
to see that our City Fathers got an invitation from Victoria to attend the Sports
on the 24th, but does it not seem strange
that our Mayor did not invite the Chief
Magistrates and Aldermen of Victoria,
New Westminster antl Vancouver, to
witness ottr sports in return. I think it
would hnve been quite in order bad lie
done so. Surely it looks us though they
were not wanted, or else the Mayor, or
the Sports Committee would have had
the good taste to give the invitation. It
haB alwars been done before, ami why
should it not be the same this time. I
am satisfied that the programme is quite
ns good ns they hnve at other places, and
I sincerely hope that our citizens will remain at home in order to witness our
own sports, anil uot take their cash awav
to other cities. Instead of this being
the case, I fear that numbers frequently
leave tlieir own city in order to "seek fresh
fields and pastures new."

THREATENING LETTER.
Sacramento, Cala., May 22.—Fraulein
Wuit/.itl of this city, who a couple of
years ago Bhot and killed Jacob Klein for
betraying her, has received a letter of
warning bearing n skull with the wort!
" beware " under it, nnd the printed
words " White Caps' rendezvous." Miss
Waited is somewhat ularmed, and the
police have been informed. Tbe supposition is that the letter was Bent to her hv
sonic friend of Klein to annoy her.
A certain gentleman met with a verv
painful and serious accident at hie residence on Yates street last evening. For
some time past he has been suffering
from stomachic troubles, for which a
friend gave him some weeks ago a bottle
of what was supposed to be Apolinaris
water. Before going to bed last night
the gentleman in question resolved to
try it. He remarket! to his wife that it
was very strong. He had never taken
any Apolinaris, and hiB wife advised her
husband to try a wine glassful instead of
a tumblerful. He swallowed some and
immediately cried out that he was
poisoned. Shortly after he went into
convulsions and then became insensible.
On medical assistance being summoned
it was found that the bottle contained
the strongest kind of ammonia instead of
mineral water. The attending physician
administered an antidote to the patient,
who, by this time, was freely vomitting
blood. Hia lips and mouth arc badlv
burned, and his throat and stomach
must be seriously injured.—Standard.

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
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle 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 throat and if allowed to continue Iheir ravages they extend to the lungs
producing Consumption and to the head,
pausing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
death. At the onset yon must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
mention is dangerous and may lost , ..

CIVILIZATION      VERSUS
BARISSt.
BAR-
Several years ago i! Was our fortune to
sail from Auckland (New Zealand) for
Samoa, between which places there is n
considerable trade curried on, chiefly by
schooners of from 60 to 300 Ions burden.
The accounts written by liarwin nnd
Wallace of tlieir researches and voyages
in the Southern Pacific, were tkc chief
motive which caused our intense longing
to see at least one of the Polynesian
groups, aliout which we bad dreamed
both as boy and man. Our stay was
necessarily short, nor do we intend at
this time to give any detailed account of
the impressions made upon ns by the
country or its inhabitants. At least one
lasting doubt never to be removed, was
graven on our mind, it was this:—Is
mankind the happier for this so-called
civilisation? A well-known American
author—C. Dudley Warner—has said
"that barbarism and vast regions of un-1
cultivated land are a necessity of healthful life on this globe. That this process
of civilization has its cycles, that nations
and men, like treeB and fruit, grow,
ripen, and then decay. The world has
always had a conceit that the globe could
be made entirely habitable, and all over
the home of a society, constantly growing
better, and by consequence happier.
In order to accomplish this end, we
have striven to eliminate barbarism in
man and in nature." Our visit to this
favored corner of the globe, as we said
before, has led us to doubt whether the
toiling millions who earn bread by sweat
of trow, or, harder still, by sweat of
brain, gain more true "happiness," than
do tbe careless, laughing natives of the
Southern Pacific islands. Nature was in
her most lavish mood when she "invented" tlie Samoan group. Life sustaining
fruits and vegetables of all kinds grow-
wild. Yiinis, bananas, coeoanuts, and
breadfruit among others. We wandered
all day under shady palms, or lay idly
looking down through tbe calm, clear
water, into the coral caveB below, where stood great tables of
coral, with their legs or supports
going down into the nethermost depths,
on which huge and brilliantly colored
shells were lying, whilst strange swimming creatures slowly moved in and out,
among the fantastic shapes a coral reef
will assume. It is a saddening thought
to us, we confess, that Samoa is shortly
to become "civilized." Civilization for
Samoa meaning the introduction of lust,
greed, and disease. We think the subject of sufficient interest to our readers
to excuse our giving a synopsis of the report of the American Consul-General at
Apia, which has just been published. It
says that the Gorman plantations in
Samoa comprise the greater part of the
cultivated land on the nortli side of the
Island of Upolu. The largest covers the
entire weBtem end of the island, and has
an area of 3,260 acres and a sea frontage
of more than six miles. The totsl area
of these plantations is 9,200 acres. Tlieir
natural features are very diversified;
from the sea they extend far up the
mountain sideB, down whicli flow numerous large streams. They have been laid
out with great care; und in beauty of
scenery and rich fertility the views
among them cannot be surpassed. They
are highly cultivated and are capable of
producing anything that will grow in the
tropics. They are mainly planted with
cocoa-nuts, for the production of coprn,
the dried kernel of the nut. The annual
production of ttiis is between 600 and 000
tons. The clearing of the land for plantations is a laborious operation, for it la
densely wooded with a tough native
growth. There are also many rocks, j
which prevent ploughing. After clearing
cotton is planted, and this is grown for
three years; then cocoa-nuts are planted
and grass is sown, and until the trees nre
large enougli to allow cattle to run among
them, some cotton is still gathered. After
six years cattle are admitted, for by this
time the trees have grown so that cattle
cannot injure them. The seventh yonr
the trees begin to liear, and at 15 years
after planting they attain tlieir prime.
Thc grass grows luxuriantly in Samoa,
for drought is unknown there, and cattle
find among the cocoa-nut trees
rich feeding ground. On the two
largest plantations there are 1,000 head
of cattle, many of them of good breed,
imported from New Zealand ami the
Australian colonies. There are ulso
some fine horses upon tbem. Next to
cocoa-nuts nnd cotton, ooffoe is the most
important product und its cultivation is
being increased, for it ia the best paying
crop. It is of excellent qunlity, rivalling
the finest Moeha, nnd commands a high
price in the Hamburg market, where it
is chiefly Bent. These plantations are
worked by imported labor, for the Samoan* will not work. This labor is recruited chiefly from the islands to the
west of Samoa, the New Hebrides, New
Britain, Solomon and New Ireland islands, also from the Ellin- and Gilbert
islands to the north. As a rule the labor
trade is humanely conducted hy the German labor vessels, yet it is not wholly
robbed of its horrors. The laborers are
under contract for three years' service,
at th* expiration of which time they are
to be sent back to their homes. This,
however, is sometimes not done, and the
unfortunate people are landed among a
hostile tribe who speedily kill or enslave
them. Men, women and children are
recruited at wages of if3 a month, paid in
trade. On arrival at Samoa the laborers
pass an examination before the Consul,
and great care is taken that none come
on shore against their will. They are
well cared for on the plantations. A
physician visits each plantation at least
once a month. They are well housed,
and nre fed on rice, biscuits, and yams.
Their hours for work are regular, and
Sunday is a holiday. There are about
750 of them upon different plantations.
THE     FIRST     STEP     TOWARDS
DIRECT   COMMUNICATION
WITH    AUSTRALIA.
In the batch of telegraphic uews published in yesterday's iSBue, was an advice
from San Francisco, stating that British
capitalists are about to build an inter-
island cable to Honolulu, the chief town
of the Hawaiian group. After the completion of which, a cable from Honolulu
to Victoria, B. C, is to be laid. Our advices even go so far as to state, tbat
Canada has even now agents in Hawaiia,
perfecting arrangoiiiets. "So mote it be."
A want scverelv felt on this coast for
many years back, is at lasl, we hope, lit a
fair way to be filled. The estimated cost
of a cable from San Francisco to Honolulu is $4,500,000, and as our readers will
see, if they will take a glance at the
map, the distance to be bo covered is no
inconsiderable part of the vast stretch of
ocean which separates Great Britain's
two grown-up daughters, Canada and
Australia. Given a line of flrst-claBS
steamers, connecting British Columbia
with Auckland, N. Z., and Sydney, N. S.
W., a marine cable is but the natural
corollary. The one has a tendency to
follow the other. Indeed we hope to see
the day, and that before long, when a
cable line will be laid from Vancouver to
Yokohama, connecting thence with Hong
Kong. The Panama Cautil, through
which we were told ao frequently, Australian trade with the mother country
was to pass, is as yet an unaccomplished
fact, and may possibly long remain so.
There is a limit to the patience of even
the most sanguine stock-holders, when
assessments are made so "early and so
often," as has been the case in the gigantic scheme of JL De Lessrps. It is not
easy to foretell what effect the successful
completion of such a scheme would have
bad upon trade grooves on this coast. Of
this, however, we are assured, that in tbe
near future a great trade must spring up
between our rapidly developing country,
and the Australian colonies, and tbe
hastening of such a desirable end will be
enormously helped ou by direct cable and
steamer communication; more especially
as the signs of a general all-round improvement in commerce, nre not wanting.
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
The following memorandum on the
state of the skilled labor market in
Great Britain, is from the labor correspondent to the Board of Trade :—
" The returns sent in this month by
the chief societies representing skilled
labor.again show an increasingly prosperous condition of tlieir labor market. Not
only is the demand for labor fully sustained in the shipbuilding, engineering,
coal, and manufactured iron trades, but
the improved state of the weather has
given freer play to outside industries,
while the textile and clothing trndes are
now beginning to feel the stimulus of the
general prosperity. Seventeen societies
have reported. These show an aggregate
membership of 179,857, and in every
case a decrease of unemployed members
is reported. For these same labor
organizations last month the total of men
out of work waB 4,831. For this month
the figures are down to 3,904, which,
stated in percentage, is 28 for last
month and 2'17 for this month. For the
corresponding month of last year the
percentage of unemployed was 5'7, and
for the preceding year 7'7. Four trade
societies generally describe trade as ' very
good,'eight us 'good,' three aa 'moderate,' one as ' well employed,' and one
as ' improving.'
" The most notable change is observable in respect to the building trades,
where the proportion of those not in
work has gone down from the 0'4 per
cent, of last month to 4'7 per cent, now,
as against 8'5 per cent, for April of last
year. The shipbuilding, engineering,
ironfounding, and cognate industries are
still improving, and ore now very nearly
up to thc level of the hest of times.
Miners are everywhere well employed,
and in the manufactured iron and steel
trade great activity is lieing displayed.
Adtlitional furnaces are in some cases being put into blast, and in the Midland
iron-manufacturing districts, difficulty is
experienced in finding puddlers. Cabinet-
making and briiBlimaking.are also greatly
improving, while iu the tailoring and
boot and shoe trades, the workers are
better employed than for some months
back. Scottish anil provincial printers
complain of dulnesB, but in London this
department of industry is quite up to the
average for the season. Indeed the improvement indicated by the figures for
the month may be truly said to be an
all-round improvement, and prospects
for the summer are remarkably good."

Pitfall, for th. Untrained - Tb. Old
Folk. Made a Mistake.
Borne ludicrous errors committed byagl
tated and absent minded pairs as tbey stood
before the altar ar. related by a preacher In
Chambers' Journal!
Timothy Duggan was a stevedore, perhaps
alz feet two In height and proportionately
broad. He appeared as a bridegroom, the
bride was a charming young person of tender
years. All went well until the moment came
for Timothy and his bride to give their troth
to each other in the prescribed manner.
"Bay after me," said I to Timothy. "I,
Timothy"	
There was no response.
"Bay after me," repeated the parson, "L
Timothy"	
Timothy was still silent, a puuled louk
creeping orer his broad face.
"Bay after me," said I for the third time,
with, perhaps, a shade of annoyance,
"After you, air," responded Timothy, with
the politest possible, duck of hla bullet head.
But this Indifference to tbe rubric la so
(Teat tbat upon the Injunction, "Place tbe
ring on the third linger," I have mors than
once seen the bridegroom clap It upon the
third linger af hi. own hand with all the complacency in the world. Onco I detected a
bridegroom endeavoring to force the ring onto tbe bride's thumb; but there waa just a suspicion that he had been making merry before
coming to church tbat morning. The same
excuse could not be offered for a bridegroom
from whom I could get no word of response,
not even a sulky "I will." The situation wa.
becoming most embarrassing, wben tho solitary bridemald—hi.sister—casually observed:
"E'sa little'aid of 'earing, sir." The man
was stone deaf j yet they had not thought it
necessary to tell the parson. If tbe bridegroom understood not a word of the service,
what did It matter I
TWISTMQ THS ■CSFOBSn.
But the marriage service from first to last
Is full of pitfalls for the unlearned man. In
some ease. It becomes painfully clear that the
contracting parties recognise but few of tbe
worda they are bidden to say, and merely imitate tbe sound with such accuracy as their
Imperfect knowledge will permit. The words
"to have aad to hold" ought to be simple
enough, but, as a matter of fact, they are the
subjects of some astounding blunders. I remember one bridegroom wbo had brought a
very charming young bride to church, and
perhaps regarded ber as a thing of beauty to
be In his home a joy forever, rendering "to
have and to hold" as "to have and liehold,"
Another, who possibly had some cause to
dread the fate of Mr. Caudle, struck out an
entirely new version, and faithfully promised
"to have and to be told." "To love and to
cherish" 1. another frightful stumbling block.
"To love and be oberrie." waa the nearest to
the original of many variations popular
among the males of that parish. The brides
were happy with the familiar rendering, "to
love cherries and to bay." "God's holy ordinance" tripped up many. "Holy orders" was
convenient, and perhaps conveyed the most
meaning. "Plight thee my troth" and "give
thee my both" were, I imagine, words of
foreign sound, and I well remember ono
young person, wbo was wedding a most villainous looking fellow, changing her sentiment into "thereto I give thee my throat"
There was, perhaps, an unconscious prophecy
wrapped up in that promise.
The words accompanying the delivery of
tbe ring are, as everybody knows, tbe subject
of some characteristic blunder*. I never
heard some of the mora elaborate distortions
credited to countrymen, but our people nobly
distinguished themselves over tho clause
"with all my worldly good. I thee endow."
They never blundered so aptly as the fortune
hunter who. in wedding an heiress, unwittingly said, "with all my goodly words I thee
, endow;" they were content to produce a
11 similar sound with a sublime indifference to
sense. "I thee and thou," "I thee do bow,"
"I thee allow," were tbe most popular of
these versions.
A CLOSI CALL FOR BIO AMY.
But nothing more clearly Indicates the utter
lack Of intelligence with whlob some of tbe
poor regard the service of tbe church than
the fact that once upon a time I came upon a
youthful curate solemnly and devoutly
marrying the father of a bridegroom to the
mother of hi. bride in the presence of their
own proper partners. The dlseovory was
brought about In this way. It was Christmas
morning, a great time for wedding., since
Boxing day then remained for the honeymoon. Seven or eight couple, had given
notice, and the congregation was large.
While one curate registered tbe couples in
the vestry another married them tn
■uooMion with such expedition aa a
•light stutter would permit The old
parish elerk, with his list of names,
called up the high contracting parties aa the
turn of each came. 1 superintended the
whole proceedings In the vestry were two
young people being registered, whose names
were, let us say, Jones and Smith. Coming
around to the chancel again one was a little
surprised te And tbe old clerk Inquiring
among the'oOMregatioii for a Mr. Smith and
a lbs, or stspjones. When I next looked in
bis direction he. had brought up to tbe chancel steps a gentleman well stricken in years
and droned In a sleeved waistcoat The
bride was a broad, comely woman, whose
turned up sleeves left bare two monstrous
crimson arte. Oppressed by an uncomfortable suspicion I hurried to the vestry, and
there found the young people, Jones and
Smith, Just paying the fees.
"Is your father herel" said I to the bridegroom.
"•Zati-eXt.*
"U»ourint)tb«l*ere»''-tothe bride,
"Ye* sir."
Id I to Jones the younger, "look,

egged asunder, Janes, the'
r, in reply to an indignant Inquiry as to
what he meant by It, coolly replied t "Well,
he," (Indicating the penitent clerk with a jerk
of his grimy thumb) "he told us to come
this way." Tbat couple had been charged by
mention of "the dreadful day of judgment,
when the Mcretsof all hearts shall be disclosed," to **y whether they knew any impediment why they might not awfully be
Joined together In matrimony; and they
heard it silence. So did the wife of the one
and the husband of 'tho other. I have often
wondered hew tar they would have gone
without ruuonitrance. Perhape the demand
for a ring would have preolpltatad the crisis.

for a Cbance to Draw a Blank.
"I think every young man and young
woman in this town wants to go Into journalism."
The speaker was one of tbe best known
managing editors In New York city, and he
passed his hand over his troubled brow as he
ipoke.
"I get about forty applications per day |
from men and women who want to become
journalists, and tbe proprietor of this paper
rets twice as many more. A young man
whom l know to be making f 100 per week
in tbe dry goods business camo to me and
affecpd to work for $25 per week as a reporter. Itmakesmea trifle weary. If these
young men and women knew bow many
blanks there are in this lottery and bow few
prizes drawn they would quit"
This managing editor was in a bad humor,
but he was all right as to facta. There isn't
a newspaper oflice In town that Isn't flooded
with applications for work. Tbe prizes in
New York journalism are few. You are
reasonably sure of drawing a blank pretty
nearly every time. There are more than
1,000 hard working newspaper men In New
York city. Outside of their own offices and
tbe New York Press club not two dozen of
tbem are known to tho general public. Thoso
wbo are well known outside of New York
could almost be counted upon tbe Angers of a
single band.
The men who bave drawn prizes cannot
themselves tell you how they did It All
they know Is that they started at the bottom
and got there—eomohow.
This Is not Intended to oncourage printers'
devils to throw type around, but as an Illustration.
Charles A. Dana ls, perhaps, tho most famous of tho men who have drawn prizes. As
editor of The Sun be draws a salary of $25,000
per year, and from other sources bis income is
swelled to about $150,000 por year, upou which
he manages to live very comfortably, aided by
a French cook, whose iitcoin* income is big;-
ger than that of a congressman. Dana started
jn The New York Tribune at a salary of $11.
per Week. He started in a small way from a
town in the interior of Ohio. Joseph Pulitzer,
rf The World, is said to clear $2,000 per day.
He la not a working journalist now, but not
many years ago he was an ordinary reporter
In St Iiouis, and they say he was a hustler,
too. Whitelaw Reid, as a matter of form,
draws a salary of some $15,000 per year from
The Tribune, but bis income from his stock
in the paper ls several times this amount.
John A. Cockerill ls one of the working
managing editors and newspaper men, and
draw, a salary of $15,000 per year from
The World, and has on interest in it
besides. Cockerill was a typo, and fought his
way up from the ranks. Amos Cummlngs Is
said to bave an Incoraa ot $15,000 per year.
He was a compositor und a private In tho
Union army din-lug tbo rebellion, and he,
too, came from the bottom up to where he is
now. Chester A. Lord, tho managing editor
of The Sun, bos a salury of $7,500 per year.
He started on a small paper In tbo interior of
this state, and had to work hard for success.
But he Is little known outside of New York.
George F. Spinney, as managing editor of
The New York Times, has a salary of about
$7,000 per year. But ho has been a hard
working journalist all his life, aud the salary
Ut not so much. Ho, too. Is little known out-
aide of New York.
There are probably fifty or sixty men who
are'slmply writers, like Blakely Hall and
Julian Ralph, wbo earn anywhere from $50
to $150 per week, but, with tbe exception of
tho men named, and four or Ave more, they
are never heard or spoken of except in their
own homes and cb-cles.
At the Fifth Avenue hotel tbe other night
Archio Gunter, the author of "Mr. Barnes,
of New York," was a lion. He was more
courted than any one at the hotel, and most
of the young men around bim aro ambitious
to becomo journalists. If tbey know of
Ounter's struggles up to tho time tbat be succeeded In getting "Mr. Barnes, of New
York," before tbo public they would hesitate.
If they could go into ouy newspaper office
and see how long and how hard men work
for small salaries, thoy would hesitate somo
more. And if tbey could go Into somo othor
places aud see some of the wrecks that tbe
tides of tho years have cast up on the shores
of journalism, they would go into some other
business.—New York Mail and Express.
6TORY   IN    THE    LIFE    OF   A   DEAF
AND   DUMB   TELEGRAPHER.
Origin of a Popular Song.
The popular ballad, "Listen to tbe Mocking Bird," was written aud first published in
1855, by- Septimus Winner, of Philadelphia,
under the.nom de plumo of "Alice Haw-
thorue," bis mother's maiden name. It was
suggested incidentally by listening tp a colored man, Dick Mil burn, known as "Whistling Dick," who wandered about the city
whistling in imitation of a mocking bird, at
tbo same thno strumming an accompaniment
upon the guitar. Struck by ins remarkable
performance as a warbler Mr. W. sold to
him one day, half in jest, "Dick, I'll write
you a song for your mocking bird." Tbe
compass of the colored man's voice was
hardly an octave, and, as will be observed,
the melody was made Very simple, so as not
to be beyond bis reach. The words, "Listen
to the Hocking Bird," which ran higher,
were to be spoken by him, not sung, except
where they came within his compass, followed by tho whistler's marvelous Imitation
of the bird.
The man was a very good natured fellow,
but of so little intellectual capacity that
though he came to Mr. Winner's music store
night after night to learn the words of the
song, he was never able to master more tban
one verse of it Such, however, was his
sense of the comic and such his fucility.in improvising lines to tho music, suggesting ridiculous fancies to attract the crowd$ttint his
"Mocking Bird" soon added greatly to Dick's
local reputation. The song was published In
ballad form, and •* °noe became very popular,
and such ii Ita hold upon tbe public fancy that
although It has been sung and whistled and
playedthe country overt or an average lifetime, it stUJ retains ita place as a song of nations! reput»taon.~Phtladelphia Record.

"Did you ever hear of a deaf and dumb
telegraph operator! Don't believe iti Why,
man, I taught a deaf and dumb boy bis flrst
dots. Believe it I Come, let me give you tbe
facte and a little story with it, off band like,
and you can work it over to suit yourself and
readers."
Thereupon this toyer with Lightning reeled
off tbe following yarn i "The deaf and dumb
operator was my twin brother, ao alike in
form aud feature, and Indeed all aave the one
great distinguishing mark of speech, as to be
often mistaken for myself. At 12 years of
age, a bright, noble boy, that great scourge
of childhood, scarlet fever, robbed him of
those two most precious faculties, speech and
bearing. When 1 had secured the position of
messenger at our local telegraph office, with
the promise of opportunity to perfect myself
in the art telegraphic, it was he who proposed and carried out bis purpose to
commence the study at the same time,
and bo diligently did be pursue his
labor that, maimed aa he waa, be acquired by constant practice what would seem
an impossibility. He read the fast recurring
clicks of the Moras instruments, not by sound,
as is the rule with telegraphers, but from the
sense of touch as he placed his fingers lightly
upon the moving armature. His had been
all borne practice from lesson, delivered by
myself after other duties were over.
"I applied for and secured the management
of tho office at G , a goodly town on the
Kennebec Here the summer found us, my
brother and I, busily employed with office
duties. The! deaf and dumb operator at
tended strictly to this branch of the business,
sitting with fingers Lightly resting upon the
instruments, Intent upon calls, or copying
wltb pen the words as they flowed from the
quick pulsations of the little brae, armature
beneath his sensitive touch.
"It was well along into the Ice harvest of
winter that one day Col. Tracy, agent in tbe
town for one of the larger ice companies, the
chief industry of the town, entered the office
and after a cheery greeting, announced the
tact that $1,000 in greenbacks was expected
on the evening express, to be used by him in
paying the hands on tbe morrow. 'And,
boys,' he added, 'as I suppose yon dont care
to keep that amount over night, perhaps
you'd better deliver it to me at the house;
then I'll lock It in my safe and be ready with
the pay roll in the morning, for the men will
be anxious for their scrip.' We were willing
to please the colonel, end readily contented
to do as he wished. During that afternoon a
furlou. storm of mow set In. Trains wen
delayed, and, in consequence, it was after 9
in the evening wben the express parcels, ant1
among them the precious bundle of cash, arrived at the office. Ours was a small office
supporting no delivery team, and aa one
of ue must act as messenger, my brothel
proposed doing so while I settled up tht
day's business. Had there been a thought oi
danger In the errand to disturb ue I nevei
should have consented to bis going alone
being none, I gave a gesture of thanks as bt
buttoned tightly hla coat about him, seized
the parcel and stepped out into the storm.
Alone in the office, the day's businos was soon
put to order and the few express parcel,
checked from the way bill. Then, Mated In
my brother's chair, I fell Into a reverts upon
the courage of the poor boy who eat there,
day after day, deaf to all save the buy Instruments—until aroused by an unusual stir
at the office door. They were bringing bim
tn, my poor boy; his clothes In disorder and
stained by the storm and, yes, blood. What
could have happened! 111. poor right baud,
which could have told in place of speech,
hung useless at his side, tbe arm disabled by
a blow.
"What Is It, maul" No answer, sare tbat
they had found him struggling through the
storm, and, recognizing bim, had brought
him here. While plying the questions I had
clasped tbe wounded boy tn my arms and
supported bim to bis accustomed seat beside
the Instrument 'We have used of a doctor
here greatly,'raising the injured arm. One
of the men immediately started tn Search of a
physician.
" 'What ls it, dear boyr I asked aloud.
For answer he grasped quickly my right
hand with his uninjured left, and with his
fingers spelled out the words In the familiar
Morse alphabet, which 1 read from the simple strokes of hts fingers 'Robbed! Robbed!
Two Muffled figures. Struck me down.
Clung to money package to the last—Ull—till
they broke my arm. Ob, cruel, cruel—two
poor boy., to rob them of so muoh.'
"A aevere scalp wound, the ressit of a blow
from some blunt Instrument, and arm not
broken, but badly hurt Such was tbe verdict of the physician after an examination.
"Tbe long winter Mason at last grew into
spring, then summer, and the sun danced
again on the waves of the Kennebec. My
brother was back once more in his old time
seat, fully recovered from hi. Injuries and
busily working the wire as before. Yet no
trace of the stolen money nor the robbera
"It was noon, and our telegraph messenger's dinner hour, wben one eventful day
there came a message of special importance,
requiring immediate delivery. Oar established reputation for promptness must not
suffer this to wait the messenger', return, eo
thrusting the telegram Into the pocket of my
coat, I rushed off on delivery duty. I have
said that my brother's appearance so closely
resembled my own aa to cause uncertainty
even among our friends tn distinguishing one
from another.
"Now, as my course lay down toward th.
river among the Ice houses, I noticed two
idlers of vagabond appearance sitting cooling
their heels upon one of the long shuts, which
project out Into the river, uud in hauling tb.
ice from its bed up the great incline plane to
the entrance of the house. As I came opposite and almost within arm's length of the
two worthies, one turning to the other exclaimed: 'Here comes the dummy, BUL He',
got our mark on him I' In an Instant it flashed
upon me, now was the time for action. To
denounce them later es the robbers would be
hazardous.
" 'At but Pvegot you/and with the words,
followed by a cry tor help, turned, and
sprang directly at the throat cl the flrst
speaker. There waa an answering cry of
surprise from the villain ere my Angers encircled his throat, and the naxftnoiuant we
were rolling over and over, each struggling
for the mastery. Tbe other, evidently a
weaker spirit, took to his heels and abandoned his comrade. Soon my mad crlea
brought help and the robber was secured
Then, after directing some to follow the fugitive, I denounced them both aa the express
robbers. That night both—the runaway earn
tured—wore safe within the walls of the village lockup.
v'At the trial which followed, the weaker
spirit quailed, and, to secure the clemency of
the court, made a full confession, likewise
disclosing tne hiding place ot the stolen
money, which, leaMoix* $200, Wae inearthed
and secured to tho express onmnejiy. There-

Preparing   Frvnch  Criminal,  for th. Fall
of the Guillotine'. Knife.
Toward 4 or 6 o'clock, when everything 1»
ready outside, the warden of tbe' prison, accompanied by several officials, goes to the
condemned man's cell, and, shaking him by
the shoulder, announces that his demand for
a pardon has been rejected, says a Paris let
ter. As soon es the prisoner has dressed himself he ia, if he so desires, left alone with tbe
chaplain for a few moments; afterwa/J he is
led to the toilet room. First, his shirt collar
is cut away sufficiently to allow the guillotine
knife to fall upon his bare neck, then he Is
fastened with a cord starting from the shoulders and connecting with another cord that
binds the two wrists', a third cord goes from
the wrist to the knees, where it is joined to
another cord already passed around the legs.
Thus strapped tbe culprit Is obliged to
march as straight as an I, with his head
thrown back. When the preparations are
ended the procession starts for tbe guiUo
tine, tbe prisoner being supported by two of
tbe headsman's aids and accompanied by the
executioner, the chaplmn and the other officials. The huge prison doors are thrown
open and the first object the condemned man
esse is the black trapeziform knife, which,
contrary to the general impression, ts uot
concealed from his gaze. Tho distance from
the door to the guillotine is scarcely twenty
•tepe, and as soon aa tbe criminal reaches tlie
swinging board tbe chaplain quite him, tho

conjunction with geologists off the Continent,
who are seeking to establish beyond coutro-

One of Gen. Uosecraus' Staff Officers Tells
How He Saved ao Indiscreet Actress),
and of Her Bet a no of tbe Compliment
at a Serious Moment.
Said Capt Henry Bush, tbo well known
artist, who was a topographical engineer on
the staff of Gen. Rosecrans in the Army of
the Cumberland to a reporter:
"It was in the autumn of 1861," continued
the old topographical engineer, "at Louisvillo
where I first saw tbe woman who was afterward to come Into my life in tho most unexpected way. I was then an officer in tbe
First Ohio cavalry, and the colonel of the
regiment, the adjutant and myself one night
attended the theatre in which Paulino Cush-
man was playing an engagement. During
tbe performance and near the close tbe actress
came down to the footlights and drank a
toast to Jeff Davis. Tho act was a foolhardy
one, but eminently characteristic of Cusb-
rnau. Thu result was just about what
might bave been expected, considering that
the bouse was more than half full of soldiers.
"Tbo insult was instantly resented and a
tremendoua uproar and row followed. More
than a score of men mado a rush for tbe
stago, and the entire audience was up and
yelling. Our party were in a box and took
in the situation at a glunco. Tho soldiers
were furious, and tho box of tbo actross would
not bavo saved hor from violence, had we
not jumped upoii the stuge to ber rescue
While the colonel and adjutant were ondeuv
orlng to quiet tho angry, surging mob with
speeches, I threw u cloak over Miss Cushmou,
and hurrying to the stago door, bundled her
into a waiting hack and litis, her sufe in the
Louisville hotel before tbo crowd knew she
was out of the theatre. Of oourso the womun
was pretty badly scared, and after it was ull
over realized keenly tho peril her foolish act
brought her. She was profuse in ber thanks
for the service rendered her, and promised, as
long as I would listen, Uiut she would repay
the obligation, it mattered not when or where
the opportunity offered.
"The next morning we wore ordered to the
front, and I saw nothing more of Pauline
Cushman, although I often beard she bad
turned Confederate spy, and that she wae
serving with the Confederate forces, with
whom we were almost daily battling. After
tbe engagement at Stone Elver, Gen. Rose
cruris, to whose staff i had been assigned,
made headquarters at Winchester, Tenn. We
occupied the Mary Sharp college building for
some time, during which I contracted typhoid
fever, and became so ill that I was removed
to a boarding house kept by a man by the
name of Day, which was just ac. )ss thc
Btreet from ray -old quarters. I had scarcely
begun convalescing when the army was ordered forward, the objective point being
Chicamauga. I was still too sick to go with
the staff, but if I remained in Winchester tht
danger of being gobbled by Confederate
guerrillas was great, as the woods surrounding the town were full of them, only awaiting tho onward movement of the Union
troops to sweep down upon the village and
devastate it, but there was do help for it. In
the opinion of the surgeon, I was still toe
weak to be removed in an ambulance, and It
was arranged that I was to stay with old
man Day and his wife until I was stronger,
when it was understood a conveyance would
be sent for me.
"About 5 o'clock in the evening, just after
the last detachment had marched past my
window, I arose from my bed, dressed myself
in a new suit of clothes, wrapped up in tissue
paper what money I had in my possession,
something over $1,800 which I had received
a few days b«fore the fever attacked me for a
painting I had made of tho charge of thc
First Ohio cavalry at Stone river, and pre
pared to follow tho army, if I could finds
conveyance. The exertion of dressing, however, was too much for mo, and I was forced
to again lie down upon the bed. I lay there
resting for, perhaps, an horn1, wben Just about
6 o'clock Mrs. Day came into my room and
told me that Dick McCann's guerrillas—the
same who murdered Gen. McCook—were approaching the town, aud they would, doubtless, search every house to seo if any sick or
wounded 'Yankees' had boon left behind.
This was cheering intelligence but I could not
get away, aud I had about made up my mind
to submit to what seemed inevitable—capture
—but I didn't want tho rascals to got my
money so I gave my cash all but $100 to Mrs.
Day, and told ber to keep it tt had gotten
on to near 0 o'clock, and whilo tea was being
prepared I lay down in my room, the door of
which opened in a hall leading to the street
In my exhausted condition I was not long in
relapsing into an unconscious state, from
which I was suddenly aroused by some ouc
knocking on my door.
"I approached the door and demanded why
I had been disturbed. 'Lot mo In/ waa the
reply, in a woman's voice. This answer only
confirmed me - in the belief that 1 had been
trapped, and that my betrayer was, possibly,
some woman who knew I had not left the
town with the army, but I replied as bravely
as circumstances would permit; 'I know no
woman who has any business with me, so get
away from that door or I will shoot through
it1 To this threat the answer came: 'For
God's sake let me in, and tbat quickly. I am
Pauline Cushman. You did me a service
once and I have come to repay it' This 1
didn't believo, but I was too weak to longer
contend, and 1 opened the door, through
which immediately came Miss Uiislmmn. I
recognized her instantly, although she was
dressed in mole attire and had her beautiful
hair cut as close as that of a soldier. I grasped
her Manila with"*a flood of questions upon my
lips, but she silenced all by saying: 'We have
no time for talking now; you must come
with me at once.'
ttrauge as it may seem 1 bad not a thought
-eaehery. I Instinctively felt that she
had come to aave mo from her friends and tc
place me into tha hands of my own. I tot
tared to Mrs. Day's room, drank a cup of tea,
got my money, all but a (100 bill I compelled
her to keep, and dragged myself to the street
door, In front of which an old fashioned
carryall was standing. With the help of the
driver Miss Cushman assisted me Into the
vehicle, and we were off, whither 1 neither
knew nor cored, I was ao uear dead by this
time that I wouldn't bave flipped pennies for
the chanco of living. Miss Cushman held
my head in her lap during that long, rough
ride, which consumed tho rest of the night,
for just as day was breaking over tbe mountains we entered Deckardi Station. We
drove at once to she depot, in front of which
a train for Chattanooga was standing. A
few hurried words to the official In charge
from Miss Cushman secured ino a seat in the
cars, which were ready to start, and a moment
afterward I was kissing the band of 'the
Confederate spy' good-by. She stooped and
whispered: 'I never forget those who have
dared and done for me, I core not what uniform thoy wear,* and in the gray light of the
morning she sopped away and I never saw
ber again. I was placed In a hospital and
soon recovered to rejoin my command, but
never until the bugles of God sound 'recall'
for me will 1 forget Pauline Cushman or
eeaso to love and rsspoct ber. Confederate
ppy though feha was, In my heart of hearts
she shall ever be a Messed memory."—St

which is admitted by the profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.

known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm iu
Diarrhoea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.

From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon ttfc wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr, J.
Collis ..rowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all oyer
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into thc country, and Wt shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. Thc other brands, we
are happy lo say, are now relegated to thc
native baraars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojihrn there will Iw but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhoe,
and and Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a* general Sedative, that have oeciirrcd
uihU f our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
lhc more tcrribleyforms of Chnlera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used '.ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pro}
fession and the public, as wc ire ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OE THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We arc sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharra. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Yice-Cnancelior Sir W.

statinit that work on the Pacific coast
defences will be begun this summer. The
home government has always been keenly
alive to the importance of the fortification of the Pacific coast, especially at or
about Esquimalt, the terminus of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, as well as the
arsenal of the British navy on the Pacific
coast Last year the British Admiralty
detailed an officer to make a careful examination of the coast ot British Columbia between Vancouver and Esquimalt,
with the object of deciding upon sites for
the erection of butteries commanding; the
entrance to Puget Sound and protecting Esquimalt. Recommendations were
made, but nothing WM done until
lately, when the British Government,
stirred up to activity by the renewal of
negotiations hy the governmental Washington regarding the Behring's sea question, decided that work on the ceast
defence should be begun at once. Hon.
O E Foster, minister of finance, speaking to a reporter to-day regarding a
statement published in a Kan Francisco
paper to tho eflect that the British (iov-
ernment was contemplating a scheme for
the transformation of the entrance of
Puget Sound into a second Gibraltar,
said the expression, "asecond Gibraltar,"
. wss too strong, hut it was the intention
of the Canadian and Imperial authorities
to make great improvement* in the tie-
fences of the Pacific seaboard ports,
especially Esquinialt. "IftheAmencans
object," he said, "to our establishing
butteries commanding the entrance to
Puget Sound, why let them build fort, on

Prospecting and f'ssblua".
James Haslam, who lately went on a
prospecting trip with a friend to the
source of the South Fork of the Nannimo
River, supplies us with information that
may deter others from a like undertaking.
He reports game as being very scarce,
though not quite so.scurce aa the precious
metals they went in search of. After
travelling wearily up the mountainous
regions, contiguous to the river, tbey arrived at the source of the South Fork
with weary feet and heavy packs, only
to find that gold did not lie in sufficient
quantities in tbat direction to make it
worth their while to camp, so they struck
out across the mountains to the end of
the Nanaimo lakes which, after hard
tramping, they reached. When there
thev camped and started fishing, and by
the' accounts of our informant, fishing
must be easy work in that part of the
country, sa he said his partner and
he had very soon to give up their
piscatorial pursuits as they soon caught
more than they could possibly consume,
and the distance to Nanainio was too
great to make it worth whilo to bring
any fish to town. Bears in that region
had not left their winter quarters, and
they neither saw nor heard any wolves,
so they were reduced to pot hunting.
Treed llj a Sear.
The history ofthe defunct bear which
the Isabel brought over from Port Angeles on Sunday night is briefly as follows: Three men were prospecting or
hunting in the vicinity of tlie Olympian
mountains on Saturday, alternately cursing their luck and the country. One of
them became separated from the rest,
and in this predicament, armed only with
a Usirty-three calibre derringer, essayed
to defend himself against a bear which
he encountered.   Disgusted at being pep-
Sired by so insignificant a firearm,
ruin made a rush at the hunter, who
took to a tree with the celerity of a man
who has concluded that discretion is the
better part of valor. Bruin could not
climb, so he undertook to grub the tree
out by the roots, and had, so the veracious hunter declares, nearly succeeded
in his purpose when the comrades, attracted by the shouting of the treed
Nimrod, came to the spot antl tilled his
bearabip with bullets from their Winchesters.— rim*..

Ii. W. T. Drake for the crown. The defendant, Mr. Eberts stated, had been
arrested and a preliminary hearing taken
' before Mr. Plants, S. M. of Nanaimo,
who dismissed the case. The evidence
taken at that time was substantially the
same as that of yesterday. The jury, in
ten minutes, returned with a verdict of
" not guiltr."
We think the public of Nanaime and
Alberni will fully endorse thc finding of
the Victoria jury. The case appeared to
•we its origin to private quarrel., which
caused much washing of dirty linen in
public.
Reward.
Messrs. Foreman A Campbell, of the
Nanaimo boat-house,   have,  in a moBt
Knerous spirit, offered a reward of $25
r the recovery of the bodies of Harry
Lister and Herbert Green, the victims of
the late drowning disaster. They also
■upplied boats yestertlay to the friends of
the drowned men to enahlo them to try
to find the bodies by dragging for tbem.
This reward is offered ua un inducement
to the Siwashes along the const to keep
their eyes open in case of the bodies
being washed ashore. We are sorry to
hear that so far all attempts to recover
the bodies bave proved it failure.
Tha Siwashes, who arrivetl in the nick
ol time to save the survivors of the accident, were yesterday suitably rewarded.
Their names are George Stebbings,
Tommy Spenlman and Alex. Jones.
A aUwa.h Tbra.be. a Cblnaiuau.
A Siwash filled with bud whiskey yesterday afternoon met a Chinaman on the
bridge that crosses the Mill stream, ami
evidently imagined he hud a casus belli
against him, as without saying a wortl he
pitched into the unfortunate Celestial
and after knocking him down proceeded
to kick him about the head and face. The
Chinaman protested loudly against such
treatment and it was only witii the great-
eat difficulty that thc few men who were
' attracted to the scene, succeeded in saving him from being seriously hurt. The
Siwash waa requested to state his grievance against the Chinaman, but all that
could lie gathered from him was, thut he
didn't like the breed and to prove it as-
satnted tha first Heathen he met.
Evidently tbe "Chinese must go."

Oaf' Sidewalk..
The sidewalk in front of Walter Wilton's new etore has been raised, thereby
improving the approach to the doorway,
though it rather throws the rest of the
sidewalk into the Bhadc. Possibly some
of the other merchants on that side ef the
street will loin hands with the corporation

boats keeping inshore on this side would
feel but very little of its effects, in comparison with those standing well out
from land. This wind is almost invariably uncertain and squally, and persons
not much accustomed te sailing would
be wise to keep inside the barber whenever it is possible to run out of the main
entrance with a free sheet.

from Texada Island on the Bustler,
brought down with him somo of the finest
specimens of nuggets nntl quarto that
have yet been found on lhat island. Mr.
Williams has been prospecting for sometime and we ure glad to hear that he has

are worth inspection, though of course
Mr. Williams will lie very reticent on the
