ENQINEERH IN COUNCIL.
Springfield, Ills., July 16.—Two hundred members of the Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers held a secret
session yesterday iu this city. Chief
Arthur said there waa no truth in the
report that the object of the meeting was
to unite the association of engineers
with the conductors, switchmen and
brake men, and that the only purpose was
to get together in a social way. He admitted that the brakemen and switchmen
desired the consolidation, but denied it
waa considered in the meeting. The
chief cxpresaed opposition to the proposition, and said he thought that nine-
tenths of the brotherhood agree with
him. A well-known railroad official
said last night, however, that it has
been known in railroad circles for some
time that the engineers are dissatisfied
with the outcome of the strike on the
Burlington system, and it has been
understood that the meeting was to consider the best plan of retrieving their
former power. To do this, it is thought,
a general strike of the engineers and firemen on every western road was proposed.
BLAINE    WILL   NOT RESIGN.
Bar Harbor, Me., July 15—The reported resignation of Secretary Blaine is

Walker Blaine, who is here to consult the
Secretary upon matters pertaining to the

to answer whatever charges there might
be lodged against him. The preliminaries were waived and Fitzpatrick gave a

by tbe citizens ot this place.

Cealesville, Pa., July 15—North BroB,,
Chas Houston aSt Sons and W. Kutz A
Sons, iron manufacturers, to-day gave
notice of an increase of 25 cents per ton
to their puddlers, and a corresponding
Increase in the wages of other employees.
Considerable excitement waa cauaed
last night by the report brought into
town by some men thut a girl named
Louisa Gibbs, aged about 11 years, had
been outraged by a man on the' Newcastle
townBite. A man named Patsy Burke
met the little girl and noticing that she
was en ing and her hat and clothing torn,
asked her what was the matter, and she
promptly replied that n man had attempted to commit an indecent assault
upon her. She also said that she would
know the man again if she saw him.
Soon after this conversation a man was
noticed leaving the brush on the road-
side,and suspicion pointing towards him.
Patsy Burke, who was then joined by
Professor Roxie of tlie S. A. and a friend,
followed thc man into town and notified
the police of the oecurreuce, who immediately arrested him. Tlie man expressed surprise, but went to the Court House
willingly enough. He waa detained there
until Louisa Gibbs, who works for Mrs.
B. McMillan, was brought to identity
him.
It was then, when the excitement was
at its highest, that she burst into tears
and confessed that she had been lying as
she did not wish to tell Burke that her
sister had chastised her, and that was
the reason she was crying,
Great sympathy was expressed for the
accused, who had borne himself admirably throughout the trying ordeal, reserv
ing his defence until it was needed..
We would like to call the attention of
the public to the present unsatisfactory
state of the law with regard to such cases
aB the above. It appears that a person
may be arrcBted on the most flimsy pretext without a Bhadow of proof being
adduced. True the prisoner wns acquitted when no proof was forthcoming, but
in the meantime he has suffered more
obloquy and shame than does many a
really guilty criminal.

ltOVAl.  IIKANTB  COMMISSION.
London, July 16.—The recently e.iusti-
tuted commission on royal grants held a
suasion to-ifty witli Mr. Henry Smith
presiding. The .session was taken up
with argument by Mr. Gladstone, who
wns called to state bis views. Tin
ceedings were strictly private.
THE  SOCIALIST CONGRK8B.
Tlie Socialist Congress which convened
in Paris to-day is composed exclusively
of the followers of Karl Marx, and the
Congress itself is spoken of as the .Marxist
Congress to distinguish it from another
convention of Socialists which assembled
here yesterday, who are known as Possi-
bilists, und who meet in Salle Petrelle.
Germany has a representation of ninety-
three in the Marxist Congress, including
leaders of the German Socialist Democratic party, such men as Bebel, Leib-
kentst and Vallman.    Messrs. Morris,
Carpenter and Hardy are present from
England,  while Austria's delegation is
headed by the well-known Socialist, Dr.
Abner.   Every nation in Europe is  represented.   M. Lafarque, of France, delivered  the opening speech, extending
the welcome of Paris, and of France, to
the members of the Congress, but to the
German delegates more than to all others
he desired to extend the hand of fellowship.   He wished to demonstrate to the
world that race prejudices, which tyrants
ever fosterea*. and encouraged to further
their own selfish ambitions, had no place
in the hearts of the Socialists of France,
who would welcome their German brethren with a love tbat was all the stronger
for the hate they were expected to bring
him.    Two ehairmen   were elected  to
serve for the day, M. Vaillant,Councillor
of Paris, municipality, und Herr Lieb-
keniat, member of the German Parliament.    The   latter,   in   addressing the
Congress, spoke in German, French and
English.   The opening hour of the convention to-day, half-past 8 a. m., stamps
it  as  a    workingman's    gathering—an
assembly  of men accustomed to long
hours of toil.   The first session lasted till
2 p. ni. when a recess was taken for luncheon. This meal was also characteristic,
all lunching together on wholesome but
inexpensive viands,  the price of which
was within tlie reach of the proletariat
who constituted far the larger part  of
those present.   The best of feeling prevails among the delegates and all express
great enthusiasm as to the importance of
the work the congress will accomplish.
Some of the delegates to this convention
also take part in the Possibilists Congress
at Salle Petrelle, but none of the 9.1 German Socialists will go near  the other
gathering.
WARLIKE  NEWS.
Some warlike news is reported is telegraphed from Rome, where I'Opinione today in an article evidently inspired, tells
the Italian people that the French war
minister has perfected details of a march
across the Italian frontier, and it is
merely necessary to give the word and
the border provinces are at the mercy of
the invaders. The article calls upon the
government to no longer delay measures
for the proper protection of the frontier.
THE NEW IRISH   LEAGUE.
London, July 15.—Leading members
of the Irish Home Rule party met to-day
to arrange the preliminaries for the organization of the new Tenants Defence
Leaeue. A motion was made by Parnell
and seconded by J. P. O'Connor, that it
was an imperative necessity that tenant
farmers combine to resiBt the extermination policy of their landlords. Tho motion was carried without a dissenting
voice, and a committee was at once appointed to draft a constitution for the
propoaed organization. The committee
consists of Parnell, William O'Brien,
Thotnaa Sexton, Tim Harrington and
others. As the chief points to be covered
bv the constitution have been heretofore
pretty well discussed by the Irish leaders
and a substantial agreement reached, it
ie thought that the committee will prolong their deliberations.

vermin Samuel Greer.
Mr. Sam. Greer, who has for some
years carried on such a courageous light
with the Hon. John Robson uud
the Canadian Pacific Railway in connection witli the obtaining of his crown
grant for laud dtiiy pre-empt.-d, tlie installments of which have been paid up
in the regular course,—situated in English Bay—was in town yesterday. He
(Mr. Greer" states liis intention of dividing up tlie land claimed by him into lots
to be sold by auction ; sued parcels of lots
to be apportioned out into the various
electoral districts of British Columbia.
These lots, we understand, will only be
sold to bona lide registered voters: Mr.
Greer's aim being to defeat the Hon. John
by adopting this means of disposing of his
extremely valuable property. Mr. O. C.
Mackenzie, of this city, ia appointed aa
Mr. Greer's agent in the matter, and due
notice will be given of tlie time fixed for
the sale of the twenty-live lots to be disposed of in Nanaimo. We understand
tbat it ia Mr. drear's intention to place
an upset price of $3110 on each lot, as in
New Westminster and other place where
an average of $ USO has been realized for
those already disposed of. We do not
presume to puss any opinion as to the
merits of this celebrated case which has
now been pending in our law courts, on
and off, for some live years; but it has
been a matter of common talk for some
time back that though the government
has expressed its willingness to accede
to the demands of Mr. Greer, the Hon.
Mr. Robson, wlio also owns a large block
im mediately adjoining Greer's property
refuses to ratify tlie crown grant, without which of course tho latter's claim to
his land is invalid. Mr. Greer is circulating pamphlets in town which will
explain his position in this matter more
clearly than we are able to do. This
much'we know, that the stake for whicli
he is playing is a large one, being esti
mated at" nearly two million dollars; a
fact which will be readily appreciated by
our readers when we g^ive the following
extract from a letter ot Mr. Van Home's,
President of the C. P. R.
Montreal, 14th March, 1885.
Finding the harbor at Port Moody utterly inadequate to the requirements of
the Company at its Pacific terminus, provision has been made (or tbe extension
of tlie line west, along the south shore of
Burrard Inlet to Coal Harbor and English Bay; but as approximately shown
on the enclosed plan, owing to' tlie extreme force of the tide at the First Narrows, tbe entrance to Burrard Inlet for
large ocean steamships will be almost
impracticable, except at low tide, and
from investigations recently made it
seems tbat English Bay must be utilised
as the main harbor and the Railway
must be extended to run along that bay.
Tbe construction of the necessary docks,
etc., will involve a very large expenditure and to provide tor this the Government of British Columbia proposes to
convey to the Company the tract of land
colored red in the plan and extensive
tracts of level ground for terminal sidings
and train yard will be necessary and the
only land suitable for that purpose ia in
tlie vicinity of English Bav.

The modes of death's approach .ire various, and statistics show conclusively lhat
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
anal Lungs than any uther. 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 anal develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to thc lungs
producing Consumption and to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now alt is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
death. At lhe onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a colal to go without
vttcntion is dangerous and may lost
life. As soon as you feel that souie.r.u.h
wrong with your Throat, Lungs or Nosuls
obtain a bottle of l'oschce's German Syrup
It will give you immediate relict'.
TUE   NICAKAUUA  CANAL.
Panama, July 14.—The latest news
from Nicaragua received on the eve of the
closing out of the supplementary mails.is
to the effect that nothing definite has yet
been learned about the inauguration of
the canal works. But nevertheless, as
engineers and laborers were expected to
arrive at Greytown.people still held on to
hopes tbat a speedy Bettlcment would be
reached of the difficulties that had arisen
in regard to workmen being imported
from the Bahamas. Notices had been
distributed throughout the country calling for four hundred laborers to go to
Greytown, and offering of twenty dollars
per month as wages. The native laborers were not to be caught, however, and
but four presented themselves.
ABOUT   ROYAL  GRANTS.
Loiulon, July 14.—Tbe commission on
royal grants, having under consideration
the proposal of making allowances out of
the public treasury for the Prince of
Wales' children on their approaching
marriages,will bring in their report Thursday, when it will be submitted to the
House of Commons. It is given out that
this report will contain several surprises
for the English people, and among other
things it is stated that it will show that
the popular idea that the Queen is a very
wealthy lady to be entirely erroneous.
By direction of the Queen herself, Lord
Cross, who bad charge of the royal finances fer years, appeared before the commission aoon after their appointment and
submitted to them the Queen's bank
account, which it is held shows her to be
no millionaire, and bIiows, besides, that
she lias been anything but extravagant.
Wm. Henry Smith will advocate the
royal claims when tlie question comes up

Paris, July 14.—An incident of the feteB
to-day was to have been a demonstration
of Boulangists in the Place de La Concorde. It had been advertised far and
wide, and as a result thousands of people
assembled in the square at the hour
designated for the meeting, many of them
sympathizers with the Boulangist cause,
but by far the greater number were
apparently attracted to the place by curiosity and the prospect of an interference
by the police. At the time appointed by
M. Clcmente, the commissary of police,
with a strong force waa on hand and
when Messeurs Deroulede and Laguore
made their appearance he warned them
that no speak ing would be permitted .The
Boulangists thereupon gathered about
the great statue of Strnsburg, while
Deroulede produced an immense floral
wre.tth which he placed on tlie statue
with the remark that it was a work which
France owed to Boulanger. Clcmente at
tliis rushed up to where Deroulede stood
and attempted to arrest him hut the
crowd cloeed in upon him and the commissary was severely bandied by the
Boulangists wlio were gathered about
their spokesman. The police then made
a charge into tlie crowd and rescued M.
Constants, but the mob wns so strong
and so violent that tbey did not attempt
to arrest nny of the offenders. Crowds
then paraded the streets, being frequently
dispersed by the police, but as frequently
reforming and continuing their viras
and their hurrahs for Boulanger. There
is great excitement throughout Paris tonight.
THE FALL OF THE IIABT11.E.
Paris, July 14.—The anniversary of the
fall of the Bastile was celebrated everywhere throughout the l'rench republic
to-day with more than ordinary splendor.
Here in Paris, the city is decked in one
blaze of color. From every housetop and
from every window is floating the tricolor of the republic. There were the
usual military and civic parades and services in the churches in the morning,
and public entertainments in the afternoon and evening. In some windows
along the principal streets transparencies bearing the portrait of Boulanger
were displayed. These elicited loud
cheering from some and as vigorous
hooting from otherB of the crowds which
paraded tlie streets, but the police made
no attempts to interfere with the transparencies and there was no disorder. In
the evening there were fireworks at the
Place de la Concorde, Bois de Boulogne,
and the Champs Elysees, at thc Eiffel
tower and other public, places, and these,
notwithstanding a late rain which began
falling late in the afternoon, threw the
city into a blaze of colored lights.
MORE FIGHTING.
Cairo, July 14.—More skirmishing is
reported to have taken place between the
forces under Colonel Wodehouse and the-
Dervishes, in which the latter lost ninetv
men. It is reported that the combined
BritiBh and Egyptian forces will move
upon Dongola in the autumn. THE   NANAIMO   COURIER,   TUESDAY,   JULY   16,   1889.

Iii approaching the question of railway
management, it might well be supposed
that sullicieiit data   had  already   been
provided to enable the Legislature uf this
ur any other country, tn adopt such measures as would be best calculated to promote    their  national  Interests.     Tho
subject  has again and again been ably
discussed both In the English and American press.    Debates in Parliament  have
been  frequent  and   lengthened, Select
Committees  have received voluminous
evidence, and, as is well-known,  a vast
amount of legislation has resulted therefrom,   tn spite ot all this, anything like
a linal solution ol the question seems far
from being approached.  The problem
has still to be solved—how can we obtain
ihe most expeditious and complete Bystem  of  intercommunication,   with the
greatest possible safety and the least possible cost? Our readers will have noticed
how  frequently of late our telegraphic
columns have referred, in sonic shape, to
railway combinations, railway jealousies,
railway extortion, and railway Insecurity,
To such an extent is this the case that
we are not astonished to sec that many
eminent writers, both In Great Britain
and   America,   are   advocates  for their
state control.   At the commencement ot
the railway era it was taken for granted
that competition, so potent in the regulation   of   ordinary   commercial  affairs,
Would   have a similar effect upon  railways.   Competition,  pure   and simple,
was    put    to     the    test;     but    the
force   of   circumstances   soon   showed
that it was impossible, anal railway presidents appear during the last few years to
be  coming round to tbe opinion that
amalgamation is tlie only practical policy;
they  have therefore set about creating
partnerships,  and   we  have  periodical
rumors of still further complete and visible combinations.     If we are to judge
trom the tone of the Calil'ornian press
we should say that at least in that most
important section of North America it is
all but universally conceded that railway
competition—so-called—is unavailing as
a protector of the public interests.   Witness tlie charges ol the railroad company's
for the carrying of small parcels liefore
ihe Institution of that public boon—their
conveyance by post.   The fact is that had
the railroad companies been wise in time
they might have solved  the .-tiestion  ol"
small parcels long ago to their own proiit.
The day cannot be far distant when railways—we refer mainly to "feeders"—will
he built in various directions through the
fertile valleys of British Columbia, nor
is it likely that  the settlers who fringe
the road all the way from Nanaimo lo
Comox, and for  that  matter  tor many
miles further north, will remain much
longer without their road of iron as  well
as tbeir road of ballast.   Our neighbors
over the border have practically proved
to the satisfaction of the most  hesitating
and sceptical that settlement invariably
follows the railroad ,'. e. supposing that
its    course    runs     through     a   country      which    allows    of    thc    possibility   of   settlement    at    all.      Build
a railway out into a desert and the desert will soon, under the influence of irrigation and cultivation, show  its waving grain fields or fruit orchards.    Looking these facts in tlie  face, we contend
that it ia the bounden duty of any Government to further to the utmost of its
ability the extension nf the railway system of the country, and if from whatever
cause tbe State is unable to do the building itself, then it is to its vital interest lo
offer such inducements as will prompt others to do the work.   Cultivable lands as
is well-known, exist in considerable quantities along the route from Wellington to
Comox, and ns we have before stated, for
many milcB nortli of that thriving agricultural  settlement.    With   a  railroad
connecting at leaBt  these two important
points, every acre of land owned by farmers and others would have an enhanced
value, and gain that most satisfactory of
of all profits,  the  unearned increment.
Whilst the Government by whose efforts
such a result was brought about, would
have  rightly gained   the   support of a
large  number  of   the  most  deserving
among the people of Vancouver Island,
lected that ul the existing stales almost
two-thirds have been admitted by the
procedure provided in the Constitution.
There have been in the past exciting debates over tho admission of some of the
states, but there has been no serious
trouble. Indeed, so free from foreboding
has the experience of the people with the
system of admission lefl them, and so
much have they come to regard such admission as a matter of regular and orderly and political procedure, that though
no more Impressive occurence look place
on Thursday than the simultaneous holding of the constitutional convention, they
attracted a comparatively small share of
attention, except  in tho territories In
which they were held. This is the result, not of indifference, bul of security.

" AMONG modern ocean racers," says
London Iron, the steamship Augusta
Victoria, of the Hamburg-American
Company, has now made the record of
tlie best lirst trip, eclipsing that of the
America, which has stood for five or six
years." The passage wus reckoned from
Southampton, from which port to New
Vork the competition has been quite as
keen, though not quite as conspicuous,
as between I'licenstown. Considering
the consumption of coal even on the
crack steamers so lately its ten years ago,
" it is almost appalling to read that the
Augusta Victoria used'only'220 tons of
coal a day, or something over 1,000 tons
- in itself a cargo for a sailing ship of the
first class—during the entire passage.
The profit represented by a saving in the
consumption of coal has become quite us
important an object of desire in the
Atlantic passenger trade as the attainment
of high speed.

MISCELLANEOUS NOTES.
Ar one ot tbe dinners of the Duke
of Portland's tenantry hist week, a
speaker congratulated his audience
upon the eminent distinction which
tlieir landlord had achieved in public life, "for wlien the Queen, on the
formation of the present Government,
looked around her for the high officials
of State, the Duke of Portland was at
once selected as Master of tlie Horse."
It would be difficult to bint more if the
Duke were Foreign Secretary, and the
ingenuous speaker will, no doubt, be surprised to hear tliat the business of this
"high official of the State" is to exercise
n general superintendence over the
Queen's stables and stud, for which he
receives a salary of £2,r>00 a year (nearly
as much its thc Chancellor of the German Empire), with numerous perquisites, and the free use of several of the
Royal carriages, horses and servants.
An English exchange states that "ihe
government of Victoria have decided to
strengthen their forts by the addition of
a dynamite gun wbich they have ordered
from the Znlinski Dynamite Gun Company of New York, The gun will be of
fi'.nilar pattern tn those which have been
made for the government of Italy, and if
possible of a less length. It will be capable of throwing shells containing '.'OO.
000 and 1100 pounds respectively of dynamite, blasting gelatine or other powerful
explosives to a distance of two miles, and
with such accuracy as to make the neighborhood of a harbor for a radius of two
miles untenable to any cruiser."
An interesting decision in a I'ase involving the validity of a contract for future delivery has been rendered by the
Supreme Court of Indiana. In this case,
Davis et al vs. Davis, the court held that
'•where a commodity is bought for future
delivery, no matter what the contract is,
the law regards the substance and not
the shadow ; and if the pnrtics mutually
Understood and intended at the time of
the contract, whether expressed or not,
that the commodity said to he sold was
not to be paid for nor to be delivered,
but the contract was to be settled and
adjusted by the payment of difference In
price—if the price should decline the
purchaser paying the difference; if it
should rise the seller paying the advance,
the contract price being the basis upon
whieh to calculate difference In such case
—it was a gambling contract and void,
anil a promissory note executed in carry-
on such liusiness, by one party to the
other, was void in the hands of the
payee,"

THE POTTER'S SECRET.
Toward tho middle of tho Third eentury,
tho city of I-iusannuin in Arvernie had not
tlio culm mxl rii'-ilt-st uspoot of Lezoux, thu
littlo town which is tho chief place of the canton of Auvergne, located upon tho samo site.
Liusannum was a vast industrial town, an
important center, whero tlio manufacture of
pottery occupied a multitude of workmen and
enriched numerous families, proud to sign
their names to the works issuing from their
establishments.
.Since the Roman occupation, many veritable artists in designing, coming from all
countries, had established themselves about
the old Gallic potteries in this region, where
tho finest ceramic earth was found In abun-
. dance. A great number came from Rome
and tho other cities of tho peninsula; many
wero from Greece, Illyria, Pha-nicia, and
eveu Judea. Their names, preserved upon
tho fragments of their rases, clearly Indicate
their origin. Ellenus, Asiatlcus, Partialis,
Acircis, Uxopillus, BoriUus, and u hundred
"Vithers vied in imagination to create these
dercorative subjects, these -wreaths and ornaments which stand in relief upon tbe graceful vases, whose beautiful pink glazing has
resisted alike the action of humidity and of
timo.
Liusannum then, about the year 200 of our
era, presented a very noteworthy aspect. Its
cosmopolitan population offered to the view
a strange mixture of all sorts of costumes,
AU dialects, all accents, all races mingled
upon tho public squares, in tho shadow of the
temples and under their porticoes, though
the Latin element was dominant. Through
their alliances with the principal Gallic families, tho conquerors had succeeded, littlo by
little, in spreading thoir customs and their
beliefs,
Some rare children of tho soil, pure from
all contact with Rome, full of hatred for the
Invader, nursing still in their hearts a vaguo
hope of enfranchisement, remained faithful
to the creed and tho manner of their ancestors. Among theso wero distinguished, from
father to son, the descendants of tho Arch-
druld Diorix, the same who encouraged tho
BonofCeltill to resist Caesar. This numerous family, thanks to its pride, Its virtues,
and, perhaps, to its wealth, had finally
RCmeved the respect of the conquerors themselves; and, notwithstanding their declared
attitude against tho Roman influence uud
their refusal of tho highest dignities, tho pro*
praetors of Augusto-Nemetum had always
lirotvucu-u tu»r»- n8afnRt tho zeal of thoir lieutenants. "One must know how to wait,"
laid ouo of these able administrators; "time
ind persuasion will finally conquer their
resistance." In effect, time had considerably
diminished tho number of representatives of
this opulent family. Since tho time wheu
tho brothers aud nephews of the archdrutd
fell in combat near Vereingutorix, its sous
hail fought courageously ugaiust the pro-
jousuls of Rome, but, littlo by little, their
uiger had oalmed as their hope vanished, and
for a long time they had contented themselves with the direction of the most celebrated pottery of Liusannum, wherein they
produced, with the aid of true artists, works
which were known and sought for throughout tho empire.
Tho products of iheir iimneusu establishment wero distinguished by the purily und
harmony of their lines, by tho elegance of
quiet designs wherein the human figure was
rarely represented, and, above all, by a roso
poloredor greenish glazo of a vitreous und
brilliant luster, the secret of which they alone
possessed.
Tho Gallo-Roman, Phceuiciau und Greek
potters, their rivals, also mode, with rare
talent, the samo utensils, with glazing uniformly  pink,  unalterable,   decorated   with
various  subjects inspired  by  the  Grecian
mythology;  but they could uot equal the
tlnish, tho  transparency, tho luster of tho
works signed "Diorix," because, in spite of
th Ul their efforts, they had been unable to dis-
'   yover tho secret of tho incomparable glazing.
M ilits secret was revealed to tho eldest son of
'r  tho family, who mado tho mixtures himself,
nud  who,   through  a spirit  of  patriotism
rather  than  through   interest, guarded  it
sacredly in spite of tho most tempting offers.
Tho father of the last of the Diorix had
laid to him on his death bedi "I leave you
the secret of our fathers engraved upou these
t tablets.    Preserve it preciously.    It is tho
•mly means left to us of resisting our conquerors.   You aro vory young, but you will
remember tho prediction of our ancestor, tho
U'chdruid, who  said:   'When tho stranger
, knows our secret destruction, ruin and annihilation will hang over our heads.'"
So Xobert, at 18 years of age, after having
aeard the last wishes of his father, and hav ing
worn to him to respect tbem, remained tho
.olu heir of tho immense riches and solo pas-
ieesor of the secret of his family.
*        41      ■ *        +        a _       #
It was a lino evening toward tho cud of tho
mmmer. Upon the summit of tho hillock iu
thu neighborhood of Liusannum, near tho
verge of a superb forest, a young man and a
| young girl wero seated. Tho young man,
with his long yellow huir, his bluo eyes uud
. fresh complexion, was a perfect typo of thoso
flerco Gauls who, in olden times, had made
Greece and Romo tremble. Tho saugum of
rich stuff, tho collar from which hung a largo
carbuncle, tho bracelets of lino gold, all his
costume proved him a rich and powerful Arverno. 'Tbo young girl was beautiful, with
ber whito robo foiling in straight, narrow
folds, covered with tho stole of tho same
color. Brunette without color, her black
hair, fastened with a pink coral pin, marvel-
uus.y finished her perfect profile. She was
certainly one of the prettiest girls of the
Roman colony.
Watching the two seated on a bank of moss
In llio trembling shadow of tho foliage, it
wa* apparent that ouo sentiment animated
Ibis loving couple.    They gazed long and
silently Into each other's eyes; then thetr
looks 'wandered over iho vast panorama
which unrolled itself at their feet,'between
tho gigantic oak:; and great whito beeches
whose branches interlaced above their heads.
Before them, not far from the forest, the outlying potteries showed their red roofs scattered over thc plain. Then the city, with its
pediments, colonnades and temples, formed
an imposing mass, and the sound of its bustle,
abated toward evening, faintly reached tho
hillock. Beyond stretched the immense plain,
•:Do you know what you ask of me, Lydia]
Von would make me break a solemn oath. 1
swore to my dying father never to betray tc
any one tbe secret of our art. This secret ii
written upon ivory tablets which I carry is
my bosom, so that, while I live, no one may
set eyes upon them."
"I was ignorant of tliat," said Lydia
trembling.
"You are also ignorant that my ancestor
has predicted our ruin and annihilation il
these tablets should fall into tlie hands ot 0U1
M.,
overcd   with   trees   from   among   which j rivals.    Would you theu conspire against mj
merged, here ami there, hillocks crowned j yie and my happiness""
with "grand monuments.
In the distant
Augusto-Nemetum, eight Roman miles away,
was hardly visible through the mist; but
above, the undulating line of the mountains,
clear and intensely blue, bordered the horizon and stood boldly out ugahist the sky, inflamed by the iii es of the declining sun. In
Iho center, upon the highest cone, a slight
prominence indicated tlie placo of tho celebrated Temple of Morcury Dumiatus, and, at
one side, a shining point revealed the presence of the gigantic statue, the marvelous
work of Zenodurus.
This oft contemplated spectacle appeared
to absorb tho attention of the two silent
lovers. Tho young Arverne was Xobert. lust
scion   of tho Diorix.    The young gh'l  wus
nt
named Lydia. Her father, Balbuo, wlio
.'ume from Homo in early youth, was ono of
the wealthiest potters of Liusannum, His
iiimpluous house was adjacent to the establishment of Diorix, but no intimacy, uo tie
bad ever united the two families. Had
Xobert, then, since th.-^Jenth of his father,
forgotten the proud dhhinisej/ -his ancestors!
How could ho hunible,hocoii(illor^.; one of
the abhorred race of tyund hl-ma-i*   .
When Xobert first fuing indusu/'V'
the head of his flourisl yet uttraetcV £ydla,
almost a child, had not/-"* *'-- Jahis notice, but in less than a yBfl child was
transformed into a WOniain?C^ner sovereign
beauty expanded suddenly. Xobert occasionally saw her, and bec-utie madly enamored of her. Long did be struggle against
a passion which iu his eyes was criminal,
long did he reflect upou the" example of his
ancestors, which was tho rule for his conduct,
DUt ho was conquered by Lydia's grace,
charm and beauty.
Ono day, finding her alone, ho tremblingly
told his love, and sho fled from him. But
shortly afterward cither tho young girl felt
the samo attraction toward him, or. perhaps,
her father foresaw in a possible union a way
ot enlarging his fortune and Influence, and,
abovo all, a means of finally obtaining a
knowledge of the envied secret of Diorix, for
dio no longer took fright ut tho tender ond
passionate words of Xobert. She listened;
ihe responded; and often they found theru-
lelves alone under the protecting shades of
the forest whero our tale has found them,
lost In tho splendors of tho horizon emblazoned by the sun.
All ut once Xobert left his contemplation,
md, turning to Lydia, took her hand, and
laid:
"It is now moro tlian a year that I have
.oved you. It is long since you told mo that
your heart belonged to me, yet my mouth has
lot touched your candid brow, my lips have
aot even grazed tho hem of your virginal
robo, 0, Lydia! is your father inexorable'
When shall I see tlio thrice happy day of our
wtrothal?"
Lydia, without withdrawing her hand, replied: "Wheu I revealed to my father my
jentlments towards you, ho becomo vlolontly
ingry. He supplicated me to havo no faith
in tho promises of one of tho most ardent enemies of our race. Seeing me grieved and dls-
SOnsolate, he was troubled by my tears and
lilence, because I am moro dear to him than
tny brothers and sisters. I seized tho moment
io combat his prejudice against you. For
tome time now ho has seemed to be on the
■joint of yielding to my prayers. Only yes-
ierday, he admitted to mo that he would be
ivillingto havo you enter his family if he
jould bo convinced of your disinterestedness.
'Are you certain,' said ho, 'of thc loyalty
)f this silver tonguod young Gaul, of this
proud Arverne whoso ancestors have always
lisdained our race, and who keeps for him-
telf alono a secret useful to all?   When ho
ilia11 havo given bumo -j-jncluniv**! proof of his
love, then, and then only, will I|gladly open
io him tho doors of my dwelling.'"
"But whut proof of my love can I give* If
tny danger menaces you, I will jjyfully confront death itself."
"May it please the gods that destiny shall
never give you tho occasion to thus prove
four courage."
"I see well, Lydia, that your father will
never consent to our union. He invents at
pleasure obstacles to retard our happiness,
'minting upon time to rid him of me. Let us
fly together. Let us go and livo alone together
in tho vast forests; there we shall bo happy
Uld free."
"Never; never! My father would dio of
li-spuir."
Ami, remembering that Balbuo hud Intimated to her that he would consent to her
inarriago if the sou of Diorix would confide
3is secret to her, she added:
"Listen, Xobert; I havo perhaps found tho
neons of overcoming his resistance. All
four rivals aro jealous of the products of
four manufactory. My father has often expressed beforo me his envy of your secret. [It
fou lovo mo, ought I not to know all your
thoughts,1 Reveal to me this impenetrable
tecret. I can then say to my father: 'I lovo
aim, uud I havo reason to love him, for he
aas given me a convincing proof of his
■ove.'"
Xobert's faco grew dark. A slight doubt
traversed his mind. But Lydia stood before
him so earnest, her faco expressed so much
loyalty ami frankness, that ho promptly refected all suspicion. And then, he know sho
was ignorant of his oath and tho sinister prediction. But, trembling nt the recollection
nf the last words of Diorix, ho replied:
"Demand of mo all that I possess, my
wealth, my goods, my very blood, but do not
isk mo to reveal this secret."
"You do not lovo ino then above everything? You will not make your wife the
sonfldant of all your thoughts*"
"Lydia, I lovo you moro than all the world,
but you usk me the ono thiug that I cannot
confide to you."
"So, you refuse mo tbo sole means of planting my father. You will not respond to
my request?"
"AlasI I cannot;" and the young Arverne
oung his head iu sadness.
"You do not lovo me; you bavo nover loved
mo," murmured Lydia, who could not comprehend this refusal; and great tears rolled
down ber cheeks. Then, rising suddenly—
"Since it is so, it is better that we should
separate. Goodby, goodby forever!" And,
Hying through tho trees, sho disapi>oa]jed
iu tho shadows of the forest.
Iu acting thus, tho young girl was sincere.
Dooply in love, sho could not comprehend the
Dlistinuto resistance of Xobert. Sho was
hurt; sho suffered profoundly, for she well
knew that Balbuo would never consent to
their union unless somo great inducement
wero offered him.
Xobert stood for a moment us If deprived
ef his senses. Soon, however, lifting his
dead and flniling himself alone, he comprehended all the violonco of his love. Instantly
he precipated himself upou the path of tho
young girl, calling to hor in a heartrending
voico: "Lydlal Lydia." As he came within
light of her sho slackened her puce, and, running to her, he folded hor in bis arms.

"that all that was unknown tome. Guarii

means of persuading my father, for I will not
be the cause of woo to you. I should die oi
despair if, through my fault, a single hail
fell from your head. Aud she fixed upon bin:
her eyes brimming with tears.
Xobert had never seen her so beautiful.
never was his passion so uncontrollable. He
forgot everything, and said:
"Sooner than 1o--jo you, adorable child, 1
would satisfy all your caprices, were the
thunder of Tarann to fall on my head. I
have entire confidence in you. Will you not

"No, 1 cannot have you perjuro yourself,
not even to prove to ine your love,"
"Is it to be perjured to have with one's
wifo but one thought, ouo sentiment*"
"1 supplicate you, keep these tablets sacred,"
"No, tako them.   Our happiness exacts it."
And, placing them in Lydia's hands, he
turned swiftly and strode away. The girl
called bim in vain. Then she ran after him,
but lie hud disappeared in the shadow of the

Liusannum,
-;< * -t* * + *
A month has hardly passed and all is ready
iu the mansion of Balbuo for the celebration
of the betrothal of the daughter of the potter uud tho last of the Diorix.
In effect, Lydia was quickly reassured in
seeing that uo obstacle could further retard
her happiness. She hastened to announce
her victory to her father. She showed him
tho precious tablets, but refused to allow
him to touch them, because, as she laughingly said, they were the property of hor
husbuud. Balbuo did not insist, telling him
self thut f^om tho moment that his daughtei
hutl tho "blets of the Diorix in her hands
the secret could not long remain unknown.
Ou his side, Xobert, dominated by his love,
bad easily stifled his remorse. Welcomed aa
a son by his rich neighbor, solitude uo ledger
saddened his life. He had found iu the house
of Balbuo a new family. Happy, he said
that his race had given emperors to the Roman world and thero were no longer oppressors nor oppressed.
Thc day has come for tho betrothal banquet. Tho factory of Balbuo holds festival.
The workmen and the slaves have quitted tbe
shops and the furnaces. Assembled iu thu
vast courts beneath the venerable oaks, some
drink the wine of the country, others sing
aud dance upon the green.
In the spacious hall, with its marble wall?
and mosaic pavement, a circular tablo is surrounded by the companions of Balbuo. Most
of them wear the toga of white wool, bordered with purple; others are covered with
the Greek pallium embroidered with gold.
Some Arvernes still preserve their national
costume. Among them Xobert is distinguished by the brilliancy of his garments and
the richness of his bracelets and collars. The
women wear the poplum or tho stole, secured
at the shoulder by clasps of gold. Among
them Lydia is remarkable for the simplicity
of her robe of woven wool, fastened at one
shoulder by a simple clasp, after the manner
of the Gauls. The delicate attention has not
escaped Xobert's notice.
Tho table is pompously served. The meats
smoke In silver dishes, by tho side of rose
hued vases ornamented with figures, contain-
in* multicolored apples and ruddy bunches
of grapes. The flagons of iridescent glass,
tho amphoras, mled with Falerifion and Mas-
sique, sparkle near the two handled bowls
which contain the fermented liquors. The
autumn suu flashes across this mass of vessels, of precious vases, lingers about the
colonnades of piuk marble, and throws n ray
upon the smiling mouth of tho bronze Mercury upright upou a tripod of gold.
Meanwhile the father of the family, to do
honor to his future son-in-law, filled, following the custom of the Gauls, a large cup with
wine of Setia, put it to his lips, and passed it
to his neighbor, saying: "May this beverage
preserve your health." The cup circulated
from hand to hand around the table, and the
feast soon was at its height.
A slight uneasiness at times, however, moderated the hilarious J*rj- of the revelers. It
was when they spoke of the rapid march cf
the men of the north, who had invaded Gaul
uuder command of Chrock, their king. Tbe
last couriers had reported them as moving
toward Lyons. Might they not theu invade
the country of the Blturiges, and even venture
as far as Arvernie* But it was thought probable tbat they would descend toward thi
south by tho country of the Allobroges. This
last opinion, more reassuring, obtained general assent, and the repast went on joyously.
As tho feast was about to terminate Lydia,
pale with emotion, approached Xobert, a
cup in her hand. She presented it to him,
saying: "You are my husband and my master,
and I am your faithful servant." The young
Arverne took the cup, half emptied it, and
returned it to Lydia. The girl carried it to
her lips, but she trembled so that she let it
fall, aud the cup, with its beautiful rose glaze,
was broken upon the mosaic pavement.
Many of the guests considered this incident
as of evil omen, but the emotion passed off
and the feast was eudod to tbe sound of the
tibia and the Phrygian flute.
Xobert und Lydia wore betrothed according to the rites and customs of Arvernie.
Their marriage was to bo celebrated a few
days later, following the prescriptions of the
Roman law.
The day following this joyous feast, the
two lovers walked together in the neighboring forest. Thoy exchanged soft words and
tender looks, nud formed a thousand projects.
Meanwhile, thu watchers, signaling from
hill to hill, had given notice of the appearance, ut a groat distance, of some bands of
Germans. The news ran through the city,
but with the carelessness of youth, the lovers
believed themselves sheltered from all dauger,
and nothing troubled their serenity.
They had arrived at the glade where they
had exchanged their first vows. Lydia recalled that ft was also the placo where tho
power of her charms had triumphed over
Xobert, and had won from him his secret.
She wished to seat herself upon tho mossy
bank which had been witness of their pledges.
Tho sun was disappearing below the horizon.
The shades of the forest bad a serene, almost
sad aspect The immense plain stretched
Itself away to the foot of the sinuous line of
the blue mountains. Suddenly a somber and
cold tint replaced the vanishing rays, and
night had fallen.
Their gaze turned at the same moment in
th-n direction of Augusto-Nemetum. They
Kii.v some light clouds of smoke forming over
tlm city, They thought it was only the

0 horizon, but the smoke became
d more dense, and great flames Seemed te
I:  the foot of the mountains.   Soon ihe
•iitral cone, where stood the temple of Aler-
■ury, appeared to be on fire, and tongues oi
llaiiie shot up against thc sky as if - rcJcsMo
bad suddenly burst into eruption.
Then only, they began to think of the warnings of the watchers, and their hands met in
mutual terror. Then only, Xobert remembered his oath and his perjury.
"O Lydia!" he cried, "the predictions of
the Diorix are about to lie fulfilled. However, it was not betraying my promise to confide my secret to her who r,*ill be my well beloved spouse. Have you kept tho precious l
tablets, or have you given them to your
father'"
"I am much to be blamed," replied Lydia. ;
"The tablets were in my chamber, where no
one penetrates, locked in a coffer of which 1
alono have the key. Each day I look at them,
bb I think of you. Yesterday morning they
had disappeared, aud today I found them
again fn their accustomed place. Another
has perhaps read the fatal secret. It is I who
am the cause of tho evil whieh menaces us.
It is upon my head that the thunder of Tarann ,
should fall."
"You divine head is dearer to me than life
or glory. Do not distress yourself, you are
not iu the least culpable. And see, the lire
seems to ubat*--. lt is probably ouly dry
weeds burning over there ou the mountains,
as at the festival of the Luperca. Let us go
home and dream of i 'thing but our hap
piness."
And, trying to assure her, albeit uot
without fear himself, ho conducted his betrothed to tho house of Balbuo. Theu, having ascertained that nothing iu the environs
revealed the presence of the enemy, he returned to his own dwelling.
+ * * + * *
A numerous band of Germans, while their
chief burned Augusto-Nemetum aud the
temple of Mercury Dumiatus, turned toward
the plain. Having heard boasts of the wealth
of Liusannum, they crossed the Allier, and,
under cover of the night, surprised the sleep
ing city.
Xobert was nwakeued by a great tumult.
Ho ascended tho terrace of his house, aud
saw with horror the flames devouring the
great city. Without delay he donned his
war costume, seized his two edged ax, and
hastened toward tho dwelling of Balbuo.
Tho place is already invaded by a troop of
barbarians. He easily clears a passage fur
himself and reaches the vestibule. There he
encounters a frightful spectacle. Balbuo and
bis sons oro gory corpses. Lydia, almost
aude, struggles in the midst of
the soldiers, who aro disputing over
their prey. With uplifted ax, Xobert
falls upon them. Many he stretches at his
feet, the rest fly. Lydia, half dead, throws
herself into his arms, he presses her to bis
heart. He thinks to flee with hor, but he
hears the ferocious cries of the conquerors,
who surround tho house. The light buildings
of the pottery are already consumed, and the
fire gains the principal edifice. Thero is no
means of escape.
"I have violated my oath," cried Xobert.
"Tho orchdruid's prediction i.s fulfilled, but
1 die happy, since I die with you. O Lydia!
my wife, I love you!" and for tho last time
his Ups fervently press tho lips of his betrothed.
At this instant a cloud of smoke envelops
them. Lydia utters a cry of horror, and they
disappear in tho flames.
Thus wero annihilated the temple of Mercury, whoso ruins have since been partially
uncovered on tho summit of the Puy-de-Dome,
and tho town of Liusannum, with numerous
and wealthy cities. Thus were forever lost,
uot only tho secret of the Diorix, but also the
process of the marvelous glazing of tho Gallo-
Roman potters, which is vainly sought for
today. Such is the opinion of the wise Dr.
Plicque, who has recently found upon a fragment of pottery tho ancient name of the
town of Lezoux, and whose curious memoirs
upou ceramics have thrown much light upon
the obscure history of Arvernie iu the Third
century.—Translated for Tho Argonaut from
the French of Gabriel Marc by T. P. Robert-
sou.
Trade Controlled by Foreigners.
People win*, nro unablo to leave New York
can see tho process of gathering thetmdoof
tho country into the hands of foreigners going on uuder their eyes. Merchants who are
still in busiuess in New York can remernber
wheu the commerce and trade of the town
were absolutely controlled by Americans,
and when almost ull the signs which hung
above shop doors bore the names of English
speaking people. How is it now? Ride down
Broadway in a streetcar and look at the
beautiful buildings which line that thoroughfare. The stores aro large and filled with
costly goods, but fully one half of these
stores aro owned by foreigners. If the sign
of an old American firm is removed it is almost invariably replaced by ouo bearing a
namo which terminates in "shine" or "berg"
or "baum" or "wold" or "child." Other
streets in New York are almost wholly given
over to foreigners. The American importers
of dry goods have been virtually driven out
of the business. As they disappear, firms
composed of well dressed and highly intelligent Jews take their places or sturdy Germans hoist signs bearing their names above
the doors and prosper whero Americans
failed. —Frank Wilkeson in New York Times.

Mew Knowledge About Cur Coupler*.
Tbo idea tbat it was necessary to havo a
certain amount of loose play between tbe
cars composing a long train, in order to start
the train easily, had become by practice and
theory almost as fixed iu the minds of railway people as is the geometrical axiom that
two parallel lines can never meet. Tbe
theory was, by starting one car flrst, aud so
gaining a little inertia, then tho next car,and
bo on, it was made possible for an engine to
start and haul a long train of a given weight,
when, if there were no play, the engine
would be stalled and unable to start the train.
But the fallacy of the practice and the
theory was conclusively established during
the remarkable series of car coupler experiments made by the Master Car Builders' association, at Burlington, Iowa, this year.
During these trials It way demonstrated bo-
yond all questiou that tt required less power
to start a train with all the couplings tight
than to pull the train after the train was put
In motion; aud the coupler committee came
to thu conclusion that the coupler of the
I'm mv ought to be an approved form of the
close book style.—Scientific American.
A Ciirlouti Hanging- Clock.
A banging clock of vory curious device is
Japanese in effect; the clock ia about fourteen Inches iu diameter, disk shaped; the rim
of tho disk, in old gold bronze, shows elaborate relief ornament on a purplish copper
ground; the rounded face shows cloissone ornament ou u rich blue ground, surrounded by
a band of white, ou which appear arabesques
in dark blue, dark red and yellow, with
touches of dark green; on tho blue of tho face
of the clock appears a writhing dragon, in
greens, yellows, tans aud shades of blue, ttie
fierce eyes and teeth being in white and gold.
The clock swings from the clawed grasp of a
fierce dragon, in gilt metal, this dragon
springing from a panel of blue enamel and
gilt metal. The numbers on the face of th«
clock are in Japanese style in enamel.—Art

Advice to invalids—If you Willi to ODtfttn
quiet refreshing sleep, free fmm headache,
relief from pain and anguish, to calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate the circulating systems ofthe body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Staff), to which
he gave the name of CHLORODYNE, and
which is admitted by the profession to be the
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the best remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhcea, and is thc only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNE is the only palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Meningitis, &;., &c.
From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Mall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Deal
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis .Irowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, hut all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Imlian home. The other brantls, we
are happy to say, are now relegated lo ths
native bazaars and jualging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. *a.Ve could multiply instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrho1,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have occurred
undwt our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even if
thc more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used '.ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense ol duty wc owe to thc proj
fession anal the public, as wc ire of thc
ooinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy lhe Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnancellor Sir W.
Page Wood stated that Dr. J, Collis Browne
was, undoubtedly, the inventor aif Chlorodyne; that the story of the defendant, Frca.
man, was deliberately untrue, which, he
regretted to say, had been sworn to —See

but the improvement comes too late to
swell the pack very much, The best
posted cannervmen ligure on 1100,000
cases lor the season's business,ft shortage
oi 00,0110 cases from last year. Some
think that the run of lish will continue
good clear into August, while other's claim
that some of the canneries will lie obliged
to shut down for want of lish before August 1st. The pack in at least two canneries on the river is tip tn last year's
out-put, but this is caused by an extra
amount of gear in the water. Al the
Cascades scarcely anything has been
alone. Warren's (tannery put up ".'1.000
cases last year ami this year they will
have scared 7,00'a), all of which goes to
show that the day is not far distant when

Some time ago the Cormi'ii had occasion to take exception to the unkempt
condition of our cemetery. We notice
'.bat the "powers that be" have lately
haal a large portion of our "(toil's acre"
carefully mown ami the resulting mass
uf ferns and weeds placed in heaps for
burning. This is as it should be. It is
only meet when an evil is remedied that
due acknowledgment should be made.
Might we he pardoned lor expressing the
hope that the authorities have given instructions for the u'liole nf our Nanaimo
Necropolis to be carefully cleaned of its
weeds and rubbish, as the portion already, subjected to such treatment conclusively proves the wisdom and good
taste of those giving the necessary orders.

The passengers and crew of the steamer
Rustler, while that vessel was on her
last voyage north.were treated to a rather
unusual, and ftt the same time, interesting sight, namely, a light between ft huge
whale and his comparatively puny tormentor the thrasher lish. The crew
inform us that the whale made most
frantic efforts to escape from the attacks
of its enemy, but was persistently followed. The steamer wns slowed down
to afford the passengers an opportunity
to witness the light which lasted for over
three quarters of an hour, when the
whale, evidently exhausted, sank out of
sight followed by bis pugnacious enemy.

REPORTS OP COMMITTEES.
Street Committee.—The corporation
workmen are engaged in making ditches
and grading on Irwin Streets. J. McDonald's men are employed partly in
Newcastle Townsite, grading and making
ditches and partly on Mill Street rebuilding the stone wall. The grading on Mill
Street is completed.
REPORT OP SPECIAL SANITARY COMMITTEE.
South Ward.—Inspectors, S. Drake, R.
11. Rowe and Dr. W. W. Wnlkem,
The Committee reported that they had
inspected L'70 buildings. They had come
to the conclusion that where metal vessels were used it undoubtedly had a
beneficial effect and recommended that
metal vessels be used in the city in preference to an open pit. To such places
as they had deemed it necessary they
had called special attention.
Aid. Webb moved, seconded by Aid.
Hilbert, that the City Clerk notify those
who were specially mentioned in tho report to abate the nuisance at once. Carried.
Aid Baker—Uow long nf ter tho persona.
have been notified are they allowed in
which to abate the nuisance?
The City Clerk—Seven davs.
Aid. Baker— 1 don't wanl. Mr. Bullock
to think that no notice has been taken of
his complaint hut I have heard several
verbal complaints and expected some
more in writing to-night.
Aid, Webb, in the absence of Aid.
Mahrer moved the second reading of the
Contagious Disease By-law.
The bill then passed its second reading.
Aid. Webb, moved that the City Council resolve itself into a Committee of the
Whole to consider the Revenue By-law.
Motion passed.
Mayor Hate was elected  to the Chair.
After considering the By-law the Committee rose and reported the By-law complete with amendments:
The Mayor—We might as well have
the advice of our legal advisers.
■Aid. Nightingale—1 don't care about
sending away for advice as several of out-
By-laws have been returned as correct
and afterwards WO have been shown
flaws in them.
Aid. Abrams—Why send to Victoria
for legal advice when we can get just as
good in Nanaimo. We have Yarwood
and McKlmen. 1 move that Ibis By-law
be referred to Mr. Yarwood.
The Mayor—The man who undertakes
the business must be thoroughly conversant with the laws of the Province.
Aid, Baker—What is the good of sending to hint if his advice would not be legal? But all the same I believe in supporting Nanaimo men.
Aid. Hilhert thought that Drake and
Jackson ought to be well posted.
Aid. Nightingale—I move that as this
is an important By-law Drake and Jackson handle it.
Aid. Hilbert seconded the motion
which was carried,
eld, Baker was of ihe opinion that Nanaimo was rery remiss in not having
held an Agricultural Show in the vicinity. The Dalles, which place was only
half the size of Nanaimo, received a Government grant of $1,600.
Aid. Nightingale—II Is time something
was done to repair the City Hull. The
expense would not be great, and I move
that tenders be called fnr lo whitewash,
paint and kalsomlne the place whenever
needed.
Carrie I.
Aid. Hilbert—i was requested by A.
Meokim I" mention that he had bought
two  lots on  Gillespie  streel, and  as he
wishes to build on them Immediately ho
would liko a road cleared into the properly. Tliere is only a little brush that
needs cutting.
Aid. Nightingale—II is the duty of the
City Council to open a road into a man's
lot.'
The Mayor wished the city to purchase
a portion of the Church property so thnt
Church street might be widened.'
The Council then adjourned.

their necks, who show visitors into the
presence of the minister on the ground
floor or of lhe ministress on the first floor.
The fimiture of a ministry is all very
handsome nnd imposing in tho ground
floor rooms. All this splendor takes
away the breath of an Englishman fresh
to Paris, who has been used to tho dingi-
ness of the Irish office, aud the plain
brick houso ut Whitehall in which the
Q. O. M. resided when in office. At .1
French ministry, the foot sinks in winter
in tho deep pile of tho carpets. In summer tho oak parquet floors aro beautifully polished, giving a charming senso
of coolness and dustlessness. Immense
windows of the folding door model
thrown wide open, if the weather ho
sunny, afford prospects of velvety turf,
old trees, shrubberies and flowerbeds in
bright bloom. There is not a ministerial
residence that has not n garden spacious
enough to deserve the namo of a park,
and the atmosphere of Paris is free from
smoke blacks.
The ministress lives generally on the
first floor of tbo official residence, whicli
is just as spacious and handsome, hut
moro gay and elegantly coquettish, than
tho ground floor rooms. Tho sitting
coomsof theoutgoing prime ministress—
the nicest one wo havo had for an ago
—were dono up for tho Duchess do Per-
signy when sho was running her curious
rig under the empire. For her pleasure
the Garde Meuble, which is an infiuilo
wealth of beautiful furniture, was rifled
of some of its most lovely Eighteenth century treasures. The duchess was, on her
father's side, the granddaughter of Nov,
the cooper's son. On her mother's side
she stood in the same relation to Jacques
Latitte, of financial celebrity, who came
to Paris with worn out shoes and an
empty pocket, but who won tho heart of
a miserly banker by stooping to pick up
a pin in his courtyard, nud so was able
to make his way to fortune.
Yet tho duchess was as dainty as if
her ancestors for centuries had been of the
due's class. A crumpled rose petal on her
couch would h;uo mado her cry out.
Sho afterward had to slave in tho house
of her second husband in Egypt (Lc-
moyne, au Orleans attorney) liko her
great-grandmother. Tho sitting rooms,
tho use of which Mine. Floquet enjoys,
aro dono up with rare old brocades and
old pink Sevres and Dresden porcelains.
Tho bedrooms aro just as elegant, and
tho dining room is n bijou. All tho year
round ministresses can havo what flowers
they please from the stato green houses.
How, theu, could they help regarding
themselves as sovereign ladies, were their
husbands' tenure of office long? — Lomla.ii

A few evenings since a lady who was
giving a littlo privato party was saying
all manner of severo things about the
proposed lottery. In the midst of hei
pious indignation an old gentleman, sitting on tho opposito sido of tho table,
said quietly:
"Madame, did you uot onco sell inc
two tickets in a church raffle?"
Tlio woman hesitated, and finally said:
"Perhaps I did."
"Fancy cako basket, wasn't it?"
Sho colored up, and, after an embarrassed cough, said feebiy: "I believo so,"
"Did the drawing over como off, and,
if so, what was tho winning number?"
The lady mado a strong effort and said
sho had forgotten.
"The reason I recalled tho circumstance," continued tho old gentleman
blandly, "was that I noticed tho cake
basket on tho tahle." And ho looked al
the aforesaid pieco of silver in a smiling
way.
Thero was a dead silenco nil around
the table, for several of tho guests ro-
membered having purchased those same
tickets, and they couldn't remember,
either, just when that drawing took
place.—Carson (Nov.) Appeal.
