Nanaimo, 19th April, '89,
daily comments on the matters being
deliberated at the German Capital. The
Radical press is persistent in its aceusa-
tion that Lord Salisbury has leanings toward German interests in tlie conference,
and intimates that German ami English
commissioners seem to work together in
the conference anil are jointly opposed
to the American commissioners. This the
Radical papers assert is a grave blunder
j to sacrifice American toiierniuii Interests

The letter written by the
KlNli OF, HOLLAND
to the Duke of Nassau puts a stop to the
efforts to continue the Duke in the regency of Luxembourg. Nassau's letter
to the King was butapolite feeler, and if
any hesitation had been shown by the
King to demand buck his own, the
friends of the Duke would have attempted to keep the Duke in power. The
King's peremptory refusal to consider
even, or hint at such a proposition and
his insistence upon resuming power over
Luxembourg to-morrow together with
Holland causes the ambition of Nassau
to take a fall, and he will retire from the
position into which be was inducted with
so much ceremony so recently; uud which
he iully deemed his own by right.
WILL RENOUNCE  IHE REGENCY.
Luxembourg, May 2.—In reply to the
Duke ol Nassau's letter to tbe King of
Holland, saying that he was ready to renounce the regency of Luxembourg,

CIIEERINU  IRISH   1'HISONERS.
Dublin, May 2.—Messrs. Tanner,
O'Connor and Condon, whose sentences
were confirmed to-day, were conveyed
jrom Tippcrary to Clonmel jail this afternoon. An enthusiastic crowd met the
prisoners at the station and cheered them
again and again. The prisoners refused
to enter the prison van which was ready
to take them to jail, and a tierce struggle
ensued between the guards and prisoners
in which the people took part. The
crowd became frantic, and the police
finally, to avert a riot, allowed the men
to walk to jail with the exception of Dr.
Tanner, whose foot was severely wounded.   He was taken in a carriage.
1'AKNEl.L  BEFORE  THE  COMMISSION.
Archbishop Walsh will follow Mr. Parnell on the witness stand before tlie
commission. He will make an excellent
witness for the defense nnd will put the
TorieB to the blush if they have any
shame. The papers continue to comment
upon the futility of the Attorney-General's examination of I'arnell, and all appear to agree he is injuring oven the
remnant of a cause that the Times might
have.
The cross-examination of I'arnell was
proceeded with and nothing wns elicited
connecting him with Fenians or showing
that he had any knowledge ol their murderous plots. Webster pressed the question whether he had ever denounced the
outrages.   In answer to this the witness
but it must be confessed that the element
of youth, especially in woman, is very
attractive. When one saw a line woman
who was about the age of forty, one could
hardly help wishing he could do as when
he went to the bank with a £411 note—
change the article into two twenties.
(Great laughter,) They had met that
evening for social recreation, und this
was highly commendable, Dancing,
which was to form part of the evening's
entertainment, was right and good, provided always it was kept within proper
bound;.:. (Applause.) He was not one ol
those who considered dancing a damning
sin, and It Was aii nonsense to say that
people iniisi of necessity he going to tin-
devil il thev Indulged in that pastime.
He had danced himself al her Majesty's
gathering at lie'side, but he was now too
heavy for lhat excivise—(laughter)—and
besides, members of Presbytery were expected never lo lift their feet too high or
too quickly, but to move through the
world with becoming gravity and solemnity. (Laughter.) He was not sure bul
it would be a useful tiling for the members of the Presbytery to indulge in tripping what wns called the light fantastic
toe. Some of them who had the largest
Btipends, and consequently heavy corporations, might not be able to exhibit all
the beauties of motion—(laughter)—but
it might be a much better exercise for
them than snarling at each other us they
sometimes did ut the Presbytery meetings. It might also be able to make tbem
preach more humanly, and develop in
ministers that brotherly love which thev
preach so much, but which all, both
priest unit people, found so ililticult to
practice, Let them just imagine their
respected friends George Gilfillan and
Dr. l'eddie, or their more modest friends
Mr. Mucauley and Professor Robertson
Smith, or Fergus Fergusen and his antagonists, nil dancing to the strain of some
Presbytery fiutu or fiddle. (Great
laughter.) lie thought thntthe perspiration produced by such recreation would
purge some of them of their bin! humor.
and make them of u more tolerant state
of mind. As one remedy of our Scottish
bigotry he would suggest more innocent
recreation both for the clergy and for the
people. Let them remember that what
they hud, the minister must have also.
He would set the Presbyterians to dunce
occasionally. He did not mean in u literal
sense exactly, but he would set them to
dance either literally or metaphorically,
and their differences would very soon be
danced out nf them.

IIEIIRINII   SEAL  FISHERIES.
San Francisco, May 2.—Tbe Chrontolf,
commenting to-day on a despatch from
Victoria, B.C., stating thut s number of
gentlemen interested iu the seal industry
have decided to address a petition to
Rear-Admiral Heneuge requesting him
to use his efforts to have a British war
vessel sent tocrtiise in Behring Sea this
summer to protect sealers from seizure at
the bands of United States revenue cutters, Bays; "It would he ililticult to
imagine' u more ill-advised course of procedure than this. These gentlemen of
Victoria, whatever mav he their financial
interests in the seal fisheries, can hardly
expect that Admiral Heneage will interest himself to directly oppose the produ
million nt the President of the United
States without most explicit orders from
Ihe British Government. Lord Salisbury
will think more than twice before he
allows a British muii of war to go into
BcLiingSea lo protect Canadian sealers
by force of arms."

AFRICAN FREAKS.
How little is known of Africa after
years ol exploration and flic work of intrepid travellers is apparent from tile
new facts concerning thut greatcontinent
und its psople which are being constantly brought to light. Large collections of
curiosities, illustrating the arts, habits
and superstitions "f the natives, have
attracted considerable attention from
time to time. There are curiosities of
other sorts, however, in all parts of
Africa, uud it would nol lake a suiarl
showman long to pick up enough freaks
ou the West Coast to slock a dozen dime
museums.
Entirely outside the dwarf tribes, who
are among tbe strongest people in Ihe
world, explorers find here and there
little folks of advanced years who are
made much oi and lire usually seen at
the residence ol some chief. Only one of
these little fellows has been honored
with much attention in records of travel,
and bis picture appears in Speke's story
of his discovery of tlie Nile sources. On
the Wsst Coast Doko dwarfs may sometimes be Been in the crowds along the
shore when a vessel arrives. Albinos are
by no means uncommon, while horned
men are to be found in abundance, An
interesting fact concerning these freaks
of nature is that they wear their horns
not on their foreheads but on their
cheekbones. They belong to n small
tribe that is found north ot Ash.oiti, and
a few of them sometimes get down to the
coaBt where they have censed to be curiosities. Some surgeons who examined
two of these a lew years ago decided that
the excrcscores on their cheeks were of
an osseous nature. They form lumps
rounded at the extremity and projecting
about an inch from the face. They arc
not particularly ornamental, but they
would probably he worth u fair salary to
the possessor if exhibited in a place of
amusement. Two or three travellers
have written ol a Roman Catholic priest
in Fernando Po who is willing to make
affidavit that be has seen three men in
Galloon with short tails. These curiosities seem to have made good their escape
Many travellers in the early days recorded marvellous stories of Africans
who'wore tails, bnt it seems thut none
of thefchroniclers had Bait enough to collect them, fnr no one else has seen thoin.
A tribe called the Niam-Niam were said
to be the possessors of tails, and the
fame of these tail wearers spread far and
wide in Africa long before a while man
ever visited them, and the story is said
to still circulate on the West Coast.
HeiiEVEiNFi urn, the traveller and explorer, Bpoiled the sensation, however,
though he pronounced (he Niaiu-Nianis
the finest specimens nf physical beauty
he ever saw.
Other curious people in Africa are persona who seem to be naturally spotted,
not like the leopard hoy known to museums, but with patches of brown or
yellow which diversify their otherwise
black skins. Another interesting peculiarity has also been recently observed. That
ia that different members of the same
family are sometimes ot different colors.
Black children and brown children are
found to be brothers uud Bisters, just as
we have brunettes and blondes in the
same family. This peculiarity lias also
been recently observed by Dr, Pinsok,
among the natives of New Guinea.
.It iH.iNi. from the reports oi Eastern
papers British Columbia will this Bummer have an increased influx of visitors.
The geniality of our climate, our Italian
skies, our grand scenery, and last, but
not least, our varied resources are becoming known and people are desirous of
visiting us for tlie purpose of verifying
the reports tor themselves. Let them
come and they will find, like the Queen
of Sheba when visiting Solomon, that
the half of the glories and beauties ol the
Pacific Province has never been told.
Tin; twenly-fouith of May sports, if
properly mannged.ought to prove a grand
success, and there is no reason to believe
but everything will work Binoothly, and
one of the best celebrations over held in
Nanainio will be the result of united action on the part of our citizens, Already
there is a very liberal amount subscribed
and wilh that slill to be obtained Uiero
will be enough lo offer liberal prizes tor
competition.

EDITORIAL  NOTES.
According to the Railway Age, which
is the best authority on the subject in the
United States, there is to lie wonderful
railway development this year In that
country. Six hundred and sixty-six companies, during the lirst three months ol
1889, hail umler contract or actual construction 14,818 miles, out of u total of
5S,43ll projected. This is largely in excess ol the mileage ol any former year in
the history of the country. The activity
in building is nol confined to one section,
but extends everywhere throughout the
Republic, the usual slow going New
England States participating us largely
in proportion us the more progressive
west. Although no one quite expects
that the total of the mileage projected
will lie completed this year, yet. it is
moderately certain thai the amount actually built will largely exceed any
vious record.

pre-
A Boston artist is convinced that there
is too mneli public Interest in sanitary
matters. He maile a charming drawing
of a house Standing near a pretty river of
water, some trees and figures. But this
did not satisfy the purchaser who had ordered the picture. He was sure that a
house bo near the water as that would be
unhealthy, nnd so the artist was obliged
to raise the house upon a hill which was
painted especially lor the purpose. The
picture was a wreck from an artistic
standpoint, bnt it suited the owner
exactly.
The question ot a sewerage system of
some kind lor this city seems to lie either
dead or sleeping. In either case it may
not he out ot place to say here, that we
have not forgotten it. It in our opinion,
as our readers know, that improved
sanitation is necessary for the safety of
the public health, anil to the welfare of
the city. It is no use letting matters of
such importance r.s this, fade from the

A   8MALL   BOY'S   REVENGE.
He Create* a Fain liy Row OS/or HI* Father'*
Pretty Typewriter.
A good story Is told on a certain well
known lawyer, who now has one of his
daughters to manipulate his typewriter instead of tho wiusomo blondo who was formerly a handsome piece of furniture in the
office.   The change came about lo this way:
One day his 10-year-old son wandered into
bis office Just as the legal light was examining a letter written by tho hired amanuensis.
In order to read tho letter it was necessary
for tho lawyer to bcml over the back of the
young lady's chair. The youngster looked at
his purent, took in the situation, and then
said: "Pa, I want a quurter."
"I'm busy now, don't bother me, boy," said
tbe father, and he continued to hang over the
shapely shoulder of the fair typewriter and
peruse the letter which she held iu her hand.
'Tu," said the boy aguui, "I wautaquarter.
You'd better give it to me and I'll clear out."
"Don't worry me, 1 tell you," said the
father.   "Can't you see that I am busy!"
Tbe youngster didn't say any more, but
just bung around the office. Ho looked out
of the window and counted tho whito horses
as they went by; be emptied some sand into
an Inkstand, and then thickened the compound with mucilage, and did a lot of other
mischievous tricks such us will only suggest
themselves to a 10-yeui-old boy. But be kept
u close watch on tbe governor and typewriter,
aud every now and tben would shrug bis
shoulders, as much as to say: "I'll get even
with you."
Finally tlie lawyer was ready to go homo,
and, taking bis little boy by tbe band, thoy
walksjst f o their modest appearing, but handsomely furnished residence. Very Uttle was
said on tbe way, and the rather was evidently
nettled at what ho considered the misbehavior
of his son. When the family sat down to dinner ho narrated tbe ciiviiiiistunces to bis wife,
and she sternly told the young mau tbat If be
could not behave himself she would not lot
him go down to his father's olllco again.
Tbe boy didn't seem to mind that much,
and finally said, as bo balanced bis fork on his
forefinger: "Perhaps I was somewhat rude
and impatient, but, mamma, If you'd seen pa
lean over that pretty typewriter and play
with her bangs, and whisper in ber ear, you'd
have thought he'd been glad to give me a
quarter to get me out of tho way. I never
knew how much pa was stuck on her before."
The youngster was sent away from the
table In disgrace, and ho subsequently received striking evidence of a parent's wratb,
but there was also an agreement between tho
parents that resulted in the dismissal of tbe
fair typewriter the following day.—Washington Star.

When Gen. Sherman Opened His Heart to
a Stranger.
"Let me relate to you a little episode of mi
famous march lo the sea. One day I halted
with my staff at a house on a large plantation
and asked the gray headed old planter sitting
on the piazza for a drink of water. He called
to some of bis colored men, then slaves, and
ordered a bucket of water, which was brought
with a gourd to drink from. While 1 ana
my officers were drinking from tbo gourd tho
old planter sat and eyed us inquisitively. He,
of course, knew tbat 1 was an officer, from
niy dross and staff, but did not know my rank j
of office or name.
"Hearing one of my staff address me at
'general,' bo turned quickly with a look of j
surprise and said:
" 'Are you a general?
" 'Yes, sir.1
" 'What Is your name!'
" 'Sherman.'
11 'Sherman; you Gen. Shermanf
"'Isuppose I am.'
" 'How many mon have you gat?
" 'A million.'
" 'Now, I'd just like to have you answer me
one question moro—whero are you going from
here!'
" 'Well, now, that ls considerable to request of an entire stranger, and undor the
circumstances.'
" 'But 1 promise to keep It a secret'
" 'Are you suro that you can keep the
secret if I impart it to you!1
" 'Certainly, certainly 1 will: or. my honor
as a gentleman.'
" 'But thoro is risk, you know. What If I
should toll and my intentions become publicly
known!'
" 'I promise that I will not tell your secret
to a single human being. You can trust to
mo implicitly.'
" 'You are quite suro I can trust youf
'"Most certainly 1 am; with the utmost
safety.'   (Said eagerly.)
" 'Well, then, I will toU you. I am going
whoro I d d please.   Good day.'
"Tho expression of that man's faco can
better bo imagined than described on bis being Informed of my Intentions."—Louisville
Courier-Journal.
"Silly Billy" and the Madman*
Mr. Frith, in bis autobiography, tells the
following story of the Duko of Gloucester,
who, though an amiable prince, was not
brilliant intellectually, and was familiarly
known as "Silly Billy." Visiting a lunatic
asylum, the prince was told tbat there was a
peculiarly violent patient, whom he could
not safely approach.
"Well, but," said the duke, "can't I get
just a peep at htm somehow, ebl without hie
getting at me!"
"Sir, there's a small square opening In the
door of the cell, through which he receives
bis food; It is barred. If your royal highness
ls so very desirous you might"	
"All right   Come along.   Where ls he!"
Tho royal visitor was led towards the
bottom of a long passage.
"Good gracious! What a fearful howling!
Is that the man!"
"Yes, sir, and this ls the cell—through that
grating you can see the man."
Tho duko peered through the bars; tbo
howling ceased, and the madman exclaimed:
"Hollol why, that's Silly Billy I"
"Good gracious," said the duke, "he knows
mo I"
"Oh, yes," said tho governor, "he has his
lucid Intervals." 	
A Bit of Mr. Homily's Wit.
A lawyer sitting in tho Ebbltt house last
night said: "1 havo been reading In The
Now York Tribune accounts of the bright
things said by members of tho New York
bar. Tboy aro mighty good, but 1 don't
think any of them can compare with the
flashes of wit gotten olf by Governor Hoadly.
who is himself now a New York lawyer.
"I was present during the great Hocking
Valley suit hi Columbus, a year or so ago.
Judge Burko was making a brilliant argument before the jury in behalf of the defense,
and used this expression: 'My friend, Judge
Hoatlly, says that this is a case of deliberate
stealing. Now, I am probably not as good a
judgo of stealing as Judge Hoadly.'
" 'No,' interrupted Hoadly, like a Hash,
'not as good a judgu, but a better practl-
tlouer.'"—Washington Post

men, and made him put on his velvet cost

forth and made his way to the drive, down
which he walked as though In deep meditation. Ho had not gone very far when he

The Tramp Who Had Heen Trained fat
Journalism Works u New Scheme.
The tramp was a very seedy individual altogether, tall and angular, withawoebegonc,
hatchet faced, and a general air of disrepu-
tabllity about bis make up. His shoes were
ragged, so was his sack coat; his trousers
were patched, and ho had no necktie. He
might havo been an ill starred actor, or a do;;
fighter gone to seed, or a tramp printer. But,
nene the less, it was a gracof ul attitudo that
be struck beforo tho door of tho cottage a*
"tho lady of tho house" appeared.
"Madam," ho said, "you see before you the
wreck of one of the grandest chicken handlers
that ovor opened a guluo soii-eo in a New-
Orleans parlor.   Do you follow me, madam'."
Tho woman replied that.sho knew nothing
of chicken fighting or of Louisiana society.
"Well, madam, let mo put it in another
form. I represent tho remains of Chicago's
noblest work of art—an untamed bunco. 1
havo unmoored among my pati'uus the foremost men iu America. Why, it seems but
yesterday tbat 1 met General Booth and introduced myself to bun as tlio sou of his old
friend and playmate, the president of the Sko-
daddels bunk. All, madam, if 1 could touch
overy ono I meet as I touched General Booth
for a double X, I would not bu here cringing
before your lovely faco ami blinding beauty
Do-er—do you yet size mo up!"
Tho woman thought sho didn't, hut wasn't
quite sura
'"Hie jacet BwelterksseI' as Napoleon said
wbon ho throw his last dollar on Ihe seventeen. Havo you over noticed an actor,
madam, when tho fretful babble of society^
pampered favorites Is hushed by tho force of

once, years ago, ere 1 sank beneath 'the
slings and arrows of outrageous fortune.'
You seel you ptuiez voiis!"
Tho woman was growing restless. "If you
want to sell a picter book or a new double
hack action enn opener, young man," she
said sharply, "show yer samples. Don't
keop a body hero In tho cold."
"Well, madam, I am ft ruined man, irretrievably ruined. You sec, 1 studied journalism at college and thought myself another
Dana. I was full of hopo when I first set
foot lu Now York and set about creating a
sensation. 1 imagined myself city editor,
then managing editor. I saw myself oblitc-r
atiug tho old stylo of journalism and inaugurating a new school. My uamo was heart)
everywhere. It was blazoned on the musty
scroll of history ami sent forever down the
future years. Well, I didn't mako much sensation or money, and in an ovil moment 1
took to writing verses, hoping to supplement
my small weekly salary. Don't shudder so:
I have paid in full tho penalty of my wrong
doing."
Ho pulled out the tenp"nn" nail that served
for a button In his coat, and, thrusting his
bony fingers into an inner pocket, produced
a greasy, much orumpled sheet of paper.
"I call this my last blue chip, madam, bo-
cause I have played it iu every newspaper

little poems that men of genius toss off in
leisure moments. I never could bring myself
to part with it. When I havo shown it to my
brother journalists they havo praised it.
Thoy did not oifer to buy it lest they might
injure my sensitive feelings. But on the
strongtb of this poem they blow mo off to e
square meal and glvo niou list of tho deserted
barns for tho next live miles, or tell me the
lay of tho most vicious dogs in their neighborhood. Today, as I was passing your
houso, I saw your lovely faco at tho window,
and"	
"Why don't you show your poem to the
woman over in that red houso!"
"Oh I madam, she is not liko you. Pardon
my bluntuess, but as 1 saw ber sitting on the
back veranda sho seemed as homely as a wire
fence. Sho must bo a very ordinary person,
I think. No, below tho average, for sho
wears a wig. But I n your faco I saw tho angelic temperament, tho refined simplicity
tbat would havo turned Pope's cynical shafts
upon man aud away from woman."
"I tbink I can glvo you something to eat,
sir, if you will step In tlio dining room," said
tbe woman; "but I can't buy your poom."
After he had eaten a meal that would have
staggered the giant of a traveling circus, he
bowed himself out and started away on his
weary Journey. But half a mile further on
he stretched himself out on a flat shelf of
rock and, lighting a pipe, gazed up at a wintry sky.
"Originality is as good as money," he said
aloud. "Whon I spent thoso six months at
Sing Sing I thought it was a clear wasto of
time. But this littlo bluo chip scheme I concocted up there is a dandy. Whon I wander
toward the lilacs of Louisiana for my lungs'
sake I'll try to sell it to some of tho boys on
the grand southern tour."—Texas Siftings.
Honey for Money's Sake.
The late Dick Hopple, whose wealth was
counted up Into the millions, was an ardent
lover of money for monoy's sake. He didn't
accumulate It with the intention of buying
pleasure with it, neither did ho ever, with a
miser's motive for hoarding, deny himself the
necessities of life. Ho always had for himself the best, and always lived like a gentleman that be was, overy inch of him. Still
he loved to accumulate for the sake of accumulation. When ho died an old tin box almost aa big as a Saratoga trunk was among
hit goods and chattels iu the safe deposit
department of the Lafayette bank. It
was not filled with bulky plate and other
Hopple heirlooms, neither wore there nny
old clothes in It. Thero wero deeds, plenty
of them, o few mortgages, some bonds, a
good deal of shining gold and the rest of tbo
filling was greenbacks of denominations tbat
were largo. It had beon tbe custom of thc
old gentlemen for years whenever be had
$1,000 In change to buy a f 1,000 greenback
with it and put It in the tin box. Thc
law, it will be remembered, does not allow
greenbacks to bo taxed. This money so hid
away did not inorease In value, did not cam
anything, did not in any possible way benefit the world But hold I It did benefit tbo
world a littlo. Tho knowledge tbat it was
safe In the old tin box made one man happy,
and that man was Dick Hopple. That was
something.-Cincinnati Times-Star.

[Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Deal
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con*
giaiulaiing you upon ihe wide-spread reputation Ihis justly esteemed medicine, Dr. I.
Cullis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned foi
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all ovei
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much quest inn whether a liettcr is im-
purled Into the cnunlry, and we shall be
glad lu hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home, The other brands, wc
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from Iheir salel
we fancy their snjurn there will be but
evanescent, We could multiply Instances
Infinitum of the extraordinary ctlicacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrnoe,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramp*,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of l'regnancy, and
a» general Sedative, that have oetmrred
unit, t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms nf Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -,ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a lirm
Conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession and the public, as we ire nf the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELHiERATE
BREACH OE FAITH ON TIIE PART

A Calmer Mute ol Mind.
Mr. Stewart stated lust night thut H.
Rowe, the man who lately went nut of
his mind, was progressing favorably. He
had removed the strait jacket tbe unfortunate man had been wearing for some
few days, and he was iu a calmer state of

the demented man belongs, have looked
after his welfare, and great praise is due
to Mr. Stewart for the manner in Which
be has attended to the wants of this patient.

For tbe CauuericK.
The steamer Princess Louise touched
here on her way to the northern canneries. The Princess Louise lias taken the
place of the temporarily disabled steamer
sardonyx. She had u cargo of supplies
for the canneries and several passengers.
She will stop at the various ports ou her
way northwards. A. R. Johnston & Co. of
this city shipped some freight north on
her.
Sheep Mealing.
Mr. J. W. Creighton of Lasqueti, Island, haa Buttered severe loss, through
some unprincipled scoundrels shooting
and maiming his sheep. It is supposed
that the parties, doing the stealing are
persons passing up and down the Gulf,
and who steal the sheep to supply their
demands. It is a pity that these sheep
thieveB could not receive that punishment which they so richly desetve.
Curious   Weather.
We had a pretty heavy shower here
yesterday, yet the crew of the Robert
Dunsmuir say that on leaving Vancouver
they were in fine weather ami about Ihe
middle ol the Gulf could see Ihe rain
standing like a wall in front of them.
We know that the rain is rather partial
in its favors on the const, hut usually it
is conceded that the mainland gets I lu-
greater share ol moisture.

state that Mr. Bishop, of Beaver Creek,
is seriously indisposed.
Captain Hanson.of the sealing schooner

and reports, having made a very good

Some nf us were greatly amused by

referring tn ibe Cherry Creek District, in
Which place 1. C. ti. staios that all tbe
brains and intellectuality of Alberni are

thai people having business to transact
will, liim could do so without limiting all
