Birmingham.

He addresied Ihe meeting using strong
language In which lie Advocated even an
appeal in arms in order to overthrow Ilia
iiionan-liiiil form of government, snd inaugurate a republic instead. "The lime
had come," he said, '-when Ihe yoemen
of England, the bone and muscle of the
nation should no longer contribute lo the
support of loyalty. The conntrv demanded a change and while he would prefer the necessary changes effected in ji
peaceful and constitutional manner,
he would uphold sterner measures
if they were found necessary. The audience screamed Itself hoarse at his remarks; and the wildest uproar was prevalent for a time, Hon, Jos. Chamberlniu
came forward to address the meeting,
and cries of "traitor." "renegade," and
other equally insulting terms were hurled
at him. The chairman succeeded in restoring order, nnd Chamberlain began his
address. "England,'' he snid, had now
to deal with a question which was everyday assuming more colossal proportions.
and one which must be settled before
pence and harmony wonld reign throughout the British Isles. He referred lo home

Tlie proposition of the member for Annapolis, however, recalls tbe fact that

One with which we are all familiar, having j secession ef the State from the general j o " | s.
heard it discussed from the pulpit and by 1 -toverament."
Ibe press.   Rev. Thomas K. Bkkchkk, an 	
eminent divine of the United States, says; A temporary feeling of discontent with
(lie New York Standard, serlotuly asks il their own government, combined with the 1
it is wrong to brilie men to vote right, contrast between the rapid growth of the
The first impulse is to wonder what man- | Hritish provinces and their own almost
ner of mnn this must bo who does not un- stationary condition, led to this eurietts
derstand that the voting duty is akin to episode in the history of Maine. The'
jury duty, and fails to apprechite that a .a nip, or nn even greater contrast in pros-
vote is no mere chattel to bo bartered. , perity, is still presented, but the political
bul a function of citizenship to be eonsci- i discontent once felt has been allayed.
entlonely exercised in the interest of all. I . .  _.......    ,
Hut the querv really springs  from a eon :
fused notion of the  relation of  the tariff R|j§§g||   McDOnalfJ & CO     I
question to politics. *■■*«•»• _» vv.,
The voter who supports a measure be-1
cause it will increase his wnges  by redu-:
ring wnges generally, or enlarge bis markets by narrowing markets  generally, is
in truth a brihed mnn, and might as well j
take the short ent by  selling his vote for
cash on delivery; but tbe voter  who sup-
ports a measure  because  he  believes it
Will increase his wsges by raising the level j
of wages, or enlarge his markets  ns a result of greater general prosperity,   is performing one  of the  highest  duties  of u
riti_en,
Thc appeals to thc people to  settle the i
tariff controversy,   which Mr.   Bkkchkb
describes as  "one vast trans-continental
batch of bribery,"   wherein voters  were
"badgered to  vote this way  rather than J
thnt   for the  sake of  higher   wnges,  or
greater purchasing power of low wages, or j
enlarged markets," make him think il no
wonder that puzzled voters  settled the
question each for himself by   voting for
spotersh.   Mr,  Bkechrh's confusion Is
due to his neglect to distinguish between
n vote Intended to benefit the voter at Ihe
expense ol his fellow eitir.ens and oue intended to lienefit him by benefiting them.
In view of this just distinction, savs
the Standard, Mr. Beecher is mistaken
In deserlbing the late campaign as a
"bath of bribery" because men voted this
vay or that for the Bake of higher wnges
or .nlarged markets. The great body ol
v. ■ -a did not v. 1. either way because
t.,.y expected by the rolicv they supported to benefit themselves ui ihe expense of others, but because they believed that policy to lie for the genernl
food.
There was in the protection campaign,
both in the protection press and on tbe
protection stump, and even in the guarded
speeches of the principal candidate, what
might justify Mr. H_i:i iir.it's impression
that tbo issue addressed itself to individual selfishness—to the baser passions,
hatred of foreigners, class prejudice, trade
prejudice; but on the free trade sidi
nothing of that kind was possible, not be.
i-iiiBe free traders arc better men than
protectionists, but because the policy of
free trade necessarily appeals lo the better side of human nature.
But whatever may have been the tone
of speeches or literature, tlie issue was
one of public policy involving the genera)
good; and on that issue every voter was
entitled to tbo expression of the honest
opinion of every other. When a mnn
voted not according to conscience, but
for cash, whether he voted on the right
side or the wrong, he injured every man
who did vote according to conscience.
It, alter thinking it over, Mr. BsBGROT
is slill of opinion that it is not wrong to
bribe a man to vote right at an election,
he might advance a step and inquire
whether il is wrong to bribe a congressman to vote right from his seat in the
house, niter which it would be in order to
ask whether it is wrong to bribe a judge
to decide right from his seat on tha bench.
What the people as a whole are entitled
to in all these esses, in that of the veti r
as well as that of the congressman nnd
the jodge, is tbe benefit of an unbiased
judgment, or at least of an unboughl judgment.

When that stream is covered with ice the

that _ elating party ol yaong people on

ABOUT FAT FOLK.
A fair amount of flesh on one';
bones is indispensable to good look;
and appearance. Plumpness am'
beauty cannot very well be separated,
hence a women who is forty and fair
must also, according to the principV
laid down, be fat to pass muster. Wi'l
corpulence it is rather different. Th«
notions cherished towards this state of
being have always been very diverse-.
Many nations have had an utter dreat"
of obesity,
To be fat among the ancients was tr
be treat.d with contempt,   At  on.
time the Romans banished all whom
they thought useless, and fat people
were of the number.   On the same
principle, it has been said,  farmer,
now sell off all their fat hens.   Th-
Gentoos have a strange habit of entering their houses through a hole in th
roof, with the evident design nf check-
Ing corpulency, for if any person is t"
fat to enter in this way hr- is regard J
as unable to grt rid of his sins, an '
suffers   excommunication.    Even   I
England there was at one time a ml
tbat "all dronktttis, gluttonis, and consumer! of vitallis more nor was necessary to the sustentatien of men, wer<*
lane, and first commandit to twelly
ibsiiffouth of gtihat drink they pleasit,
and incontinent thaireafter was draunit
in Ane fresche rever."   It may have
been fear of a similar fate that made
Lord  Byron  fret  over  his growing
bulk.
On the other hand, some people j
have regarded corpulency as an advan- j
tage. The Egyptians used to systematically fatten their ladies by requiring
them to sit in baths of chicken broth
and eat chickens to the number of
those which went to make up the bath.
This had to be repeated for several
days at a time, and its effect must
have been to give a fillip to the poultry
market, while increasing the beauty of
the lady, according to national ideas.
In China to be fat is to be favored;
there they measure a man's mind by
his girth. If Shakespeare's tastes
showed themselves in his writings he
bad a decided preference for fat over
lean people, for he makes C.-sar say
[l to Anthony—
"Let me have men about me that are
fat,
Sleek-headed men, and such as sleep
0' nights;
Yon Cassius has a lean and hungry
look.
He thinks too much; such men art-
dangerous."
The instances of enormously fat
people, rivalling the Claimant, handed
down to us arc very numerous. Cambridge was once blessed with a professor so fat that thc paviors used to
doff their caps and say, "God bless
you, sir," when he stepped over their
work, believing he saved them a great
deal of labor by doing the work of tbe
stampers. Whether intended as a
compliment or not, a 1 .dy once called
! Dr. Beddos a "walking feather-bed."'
A goad  story is related  of Mrs.
1 Clive and Mrs. Pritchard, two famous
actresses of their tim-. and both of
extraordinary girth.   1 .icy were taking
, the respective parts of Lady Easy and
•Kdging in 'The Careless Husband.'
Mis. Clive drops a letter and asks Mrs.
'Prfrc__rd.opic_i.iip, I
"Not I, indeed," says Mrs. Pritchard; "take it up yourself if you lib;
it."
The house roars, nnd Mrs. Clive
breaks in—
I    "Oh!  well,  if you  won't take up
I the letter I must find  some one who
i will," and beckoning   lo   _. servant,
I that  individual   comes   forward   and
I picks up the letter.
I    There is a notion which has a good
foundation   in   fart,   that as a rule fat
people  are  more jolly than lean ones,
and this  is the  reason  why so many
authors make their humorous characters
fat,   and their melancholy ones unnaturally  lean.    PaJstaff  was fat; so1
was Wilier,  senior; sn  was Sir Roger 1
de ('overley; while I ion Quixote, Mae-
bethand Stains were lean.
Why some people grow so fat in
1 spite of all attempts to strike ihe happy
medium is a difficult question lo
answer. The common idea is that
there ii in such eases a predisposition
to obesity. A thin man once sked a
doctor why he was so thin, and the
reply he got was, "Sir, there is a predisposition in your constitution to
make you lean, and a disposition in
your constitution to keep you so." By
substituting "fat" for "lean," the
reply may be put to much more extensive use.
Where there is a predisposition lo
any state or condition, it is usually
written in the face. Out of every
hundred persons who die of consumption, ninety have brown hair, long
' faces, and sharp noses; out of every
hundred obese persons ninety have
short faces, round eyes, and obtuse or
snub noses.
What the Scotch call "intemperance
of the mouth" is, without doubt, one
of the greatest generators of fat. It is
related of the Duke of Lauderdale, an
unusually corpulent man, that when
dining with other people he used to, • -
at a li-g of mutton beforehand so that [i.i
he might "start fair." A pint of
narrow formed his breakfast.
There is a theory that butchers are
isually fat because they eat a good deal
f meat.    Butchers, however, are not
1 fond of meat as many people sup.
><.si:; they prefer poultry and fish when
•hey do eat flesh.    Grose,  the  cor-
ulent antiquary, was requested by his
•tUcker to be so good as to tell people
..'here he got his meat,   Evidently, In
' .at case the butcher shared th>- common Imiuvislon.   If ment 1. • m-ik.
f it, the query mav fairly be put, Why
»re all carnivorous animals so noticeably lean ?
Mr. Banting, famous for his connection with the "Banting system" of cur-
i ig corpulency, found no r.li f but recurs. to. mi at as Ms st.; 1 f od, and
. famous Parisian do. r.-,p. Dane I,

Texaoa Nbws—Prospecting still continues on Texada Island, aad considerable assessment work is being done. The
syndicate which recently bonded tbe
"Golden Slipper" and other claims from the
Texada Mining Company, bni begun the
development of these properties. So far
as heard from, .he different claims are
looking well, and present Indications Are
that they will prove valuable  properties.
A Pi.ccky Youngster—On Thursdny
afternoon, a little son of Mr. Lawrence, nf
the Chicago candy factory, while playing
about Mcintosh's boat house at .lames
Hay bridge, stumbled and fell iuto the
water. He would certainly have drowned
bad it not been for the prompt action of
his playfellow, little Bernle Sehwenger, I ing to pay only a
who, although, in considerable danger \ started from home
himself, managed to rescue his friend
from a watery grave.—Colonist.
FooTBAl 1. Meehxo—At a meeting of the
Football Club held iu Mr. Hawthorn-
thwaite's oflice ou Suturduy evening, it
was decided shortly to call a public meeting to discuss tlie question of instituting
a gymnasium and athletic hall in this
city. This is a want which has heen long
felt, nnd we hope that tbe undertaking
will meet with all the support from the
city which it deserves, The lime and
place ol tho meeting will bo duly advertised.
A Bio Raft.—The big raft that ii to
float from tho Sound down to San Francisco will bo made of longer logs tban
were ever put into a raft on Atlantic
waters. It will have but five thousand
lo^s us against the 25,000 in the big Joggins
raft of last year, but none will he lass than
100 feet long, and tbe greater size of the
slicks, it is thought, will b.ing the amount
of lumber up to tho amount of the eastern
rait.

like
boy, says "Longman's,"
Mr. Oscar Wilde, found the ocean disappointing. After explaining that sailors
don't wear collars bei-ause their necks are
so thick, and giving other interesting Information respecting the life of seamen,
be goes on to say; "You think that the
sea is bigger than what it looks. I have
seed it once, and I wouldn't believe it
was the ocheant. till tlie teacher told me
it was. It was when our school went
from Waterloo to Portsmouth, antl noth-
shilling. Just before I
that morning, my
mother said to me while she was brushing me up uiced—
"Billy, you'll see the waves jump mountains high, if it only blows a bit,"
"Then I said, "Have you  ever seed it
jump, mother?" aud she said—
. ." 'No, Billy, I've never seen the sea,
ner never shall; but I've heard on it,
Billy.'
"So when the teacher told me that "»1
piece of green water wns the ocheant, I
felt as if I'd just come all for nuthin'. I
looked at it till I was nearly sick, and I
should have set down and done a goad
cry, only I bail to keep follerin' of the
teacher, so I hadn't time. At last I felt
so riled that I went up and cot hold of
the teacher's coat, and I aald:
11 <p|eaae. sir, can vou make It jump a
bit?'
"But he only lauft and told me what a
funny boy I was. I do beleeve that he
thought I was a-kiddin' him. Bnt I
wiiBii't a-kiddln' him at all. I only
wanted to see the odieant carrying on
same aa my mother t- li me it did."
Nicet. Riii-K—Aldermaa Nightingale informed us that he Intended to set off' a hi r;«
blast next Monday. The charge will consist of 800 pounds of dynamite. The explosion is specially prepared for the occasion, and is as strong as it can be made,
and allow of its being handled with safety
85 per cent. The citizens will do well to
look out for the explosion, as it
will be a grand sight. ■
N. B. The fish have not been warned
and a harvest of dead ones is expected.
Seai.ebb Heard Fkosi—Capt. Raines,
sf the steamer Southern California, which
arrived in this port yesterday, spoke four
sealing vessels below the mouth of tha
Columbia, on his way up. They reported
having experienced very rough weather,
and consequently a verv light catch of
seals. The Southern California met with
very rough weather on her passage up, |
one day only making 24 miles in as many
hours,'and the voyage was of six days
duration. The steamer will sail to-day
at ndon with a cargo of coal for Suit
I Pedro.
[    Fbiseii   Riveii  Canxeiiies.—Contrary'

Teachbb's I.wrrrUTE.-The regular quarterly meeting of the Teachers ot Nanaimo district was held yesterday in tbe high
school building, There were present Miss
Brown, Hiss Gardner, Miss (Sunns, Miss
Lawrence, Mis_ llamsay, and Messrs.
Hunter, Paul. Shaw, Hamilton nnd Smith.
During the forenoon session au excellent
original paper on "spelling" wns read by
< Miss Gardner. The paper was fully discussed by tbe teachers present and evoked
much favorable comment. At the afternoon session Mr. J. F. Smith of Gabriola
Island, read a paper on "the objects and
alms «f onr Public schools." The paper
wm well received and an interesting discussion wa* bad. Other subjects of inter-

imbibed freely of pale-face flrewnter, and
in thc perversity of his nature he determined that his led brothers nnd sisters
should also eat oi the "forbidden fruit,"
to-wit: the white man's gin. So. armed
wilh .1 bottle of square face nnd 11 good
internal supply of the same liquid, lie betook himself to the "rnncherie." He entered 11 hut, lie poured his blatidishinentn
upon the occupants; he was too sharp to
give them the gin on tlie reservation,
consequently he tried to induce some , _
the inmates to accompany him outside
the limit... They wonld not. lie started
for another ti poo, when one of the alior-
iaincs pulled a revolver and began rapidly empti ing the pistol iuto the air. The
white brother was paralyzed in more wave
than one, but quickly recovering himself
with an energy born ' of desperation, >:•

sound of his feet, as they kissed the road
in his ignoble flight, reverberated like
thunder in tlie mountain. The bridge cn
the Departure Bay road vibrated tremendously as he struck It. He reached
the other side breathless, and
fell exhausted on the Comox road,
where he was foand a short time after.
Hereafter he will probably "take a tumble
to himself," and seek no more recreation
nor notoriety within the malodorous .re-
