PARNELL OK -Iilli hTANIi.
London, April 30.—The PurnellCommission resumed ils session to-day after
the Easterrecess. Parnell was put iu the
witness box, lie gave his testimony in
n clear ami a deliberate manner. Hi
slated he did mil know Unit llelaney,
who testified fm- tlie Times, was connected with any plan for obtaining amnesty
for any of his associates. Witness
stated thai he had never beard nf any
attempt nn Judge Lawson's life, lie
said he never was a member of any secret society i'arnell testified further
llial he did m>l kno« until 1887 lhat Mr.
liiggar, Nationalist member of Parliament; was a Fenian, lie then asked him
lo resign from tin- organization, but
Bit-ear refused.
i'arnell said In- had never communicated with, nor mel Patrick Ford or any
Fenian convicts nr exiles in America. lie
lirst beard nf ibe Clan-ua-Cuel, in
America. He luul nol left Ins internals
iu America in the bauds of Ford and the
Fenians, but. in Hie hands of Dillon ami
ami his parly. He had urged Boycotting
under certain conditions, but had never
countenanced intimidation, lie did mil
remember the circumstances nf his having an interview with I.eCaron in 1881,
although it might have occurred, He
had never said be believed that only
force would redeem Ireland, but on the
contrary he had no doubt lhat hy constitutional parliamentary action the Irish
leaders Would achieve success, lie had
never suggested a revolution, or discussed
tlie means by which a revolution could
be effected, nor had he ever been asked
to authorise the payment of $20,000 to
remove the (Government officials. He
had never sanctioned any outrages ami
knew nf no payments having been made
I'm- the commission of outrages.
He had not approvedofEgan'ssuggestion
that Earl Cowper, Forster ami Burke,
also Justices Lawsnuainl May and others
be removed. I'arnell contended thai he
could not have approved such suggestion.
Fgan never having made it. lie had
never beard of the proposition from any
quarter for iheir removal, meaning the
murder of Cowper, Forster or others,
and be did not knnw nf the existence nf
an Invincible Conspiracy until after his
arrest in 1888. When lie was liberated
from Kiliuaiuhani on parole that he
might attend the funeral of his nephew
in Paris, he met there Justin McCarthy,
Qtlinn and Byrne. He did not know-
that ByrhO bad been a Fenian, nor connected wilh them in any way while in
1'aris. He did not believe that Fgnn
had supplied the Invincibles with money
from the League.
LONDON NEWS.
The Standard's correspondent al Vienna revives the languishing Aiistio-Uus-
sian war scare by his assertions that the
designs nf the Czar upon Constantinople.
are of a most deliberate and determined
character. The stambuloir Government
nf Bulgaria, stands almosi entirely alone
as an Impediment to Russian Influence
in the Balkans, and this slight harrier,
the correspondent asserts, is all that prevents Russia from taking Immediate
action. If Ihis be true, and there is no
renson to question the authority for the
statement, the situation is indeed serious
in the respect of llicirululity tn withstand
a Russian invasion. Knumnnin is un
heller oil' than Bulgaria, and there is a
possibility that both of I hose countries
will be occupied by Russian troops at a
time not very remote.
It is staled upon good authority that a
number of the copartners of John Walter in ownership of thttTimet, intend to
bring a suit in   the Chancery Court to
compel that gentleman to bear theex-
fenses of the 'I'iims in its case versus the
'arnellites before Justice I Lumen's commission out of his own persona] fortune,
The allegation which the action is based
on is that Mr. Walters was Individually
responsible for the publication of the
"l'arnellisin and crime" articles, and the
accompanying Recusations against Nationalist members, having printed them
in spite of ihe remonstrances of his mote
cautious associates. If tbe action should
be successful Walters will be ruined
financially.

the longest tow ever made on the Pacific
Const. She is lo take a mud dredger belonging to a Chicago linn to Tacoma. The
owners of the dredger having a contract
with the railroad company for three
years work. The dredger is 180 feel long,
llO feet beam, nml 10 feel In depth of
hold, nnd draws six feet of water. She
is valued at at about (60,000. On account
of the Unfavorable weather of this time
of the year, the dredger has been housed
ill and built extra strong to make the
trip. The tow will cost in Ibe neighborhood of $00,000, and lhc tug will be gone
a'month on the trip. The Vigilant can
carry 120 Inns of coal, but to provide
against running out of fuel, a quantity
will be siored on the barge, and coal wiil
bo taken nt San Diego and Seattle. The
prevailing winds at this seasnn of the
year are from tlie northwest, and there
is generally a head sen, so the Vigilant
has n very difficult job to perform.

A registering savings bank is the latest
novelty. It is shaped like a Saratoga
trunk. Three styles are made, one for
cents.another for half-dimes and a third
for dimes. Each, after the lirst coin is
deposited, is locked until tlie hundredth
coin is pushed through the slot, and as
each coin enters It registers upon a dial.
A man who buys a dune bank must put
100 dimes into It if he wants to open it,
nnd n nickel bank can be opened only
when it contains if->. The bunks are
strongly made of nickel-plated east iron,
and the locking device is llhpicknble, because after it is locked the keyhole is
taken indoors.    Nothing but   the   right
amount of coins will open it, and when
the hundredth coin enters the door opens
automatically.
He Could Do tbo Work of Foal- Oxen.
Flats That Wore Like Sledge llainuieri.
He Didn't Secui to Understand HU Peculiar Girt.
Tho following history ot a remarkable man,
which wo compile from a sketch published in
a Micliigun journal many years ago, tends to
show that, notwithstanding the almost universal desire for unusual gifts, it ls, after all,
tho dead level which is safest, since even
physical strength and noble proportions,
w-ticu in excess, may so ostracize and set
apart a man as to make bis pre-eminence a
positivu drawback to him.
Tho first record wo have of Charles Freeman, tho subject of tills sketch, is that he appeared among other laborers on a western
canal aliout tho year 1840, where his extraordinary strength and stature attracted much
attention.
Freeiuun is sold to have bean at that time
8 feet tall aud to bu vo measured 8 feet across
the shoulders. His arms whore they sprang
from his chest wero as large us a medium
sized man's liody, and they tapered down toa
hand not less limn II Inches In t.hl.*lrn«ft1
while, the fists could only be compared to a
sledge hammer iu size aud strength.
His ago was then 17 years, and he waa still
growing in bulk. Ho received the wages of
on ordinary workman, but his enormous
strength mode him a most destructive one.
Such a Titan should hare had giant tools
mudo ou purpose for him, for when be seised
an ordinary shovel it went through the clay
like a breaking up plow, aud the handle soon
caruo off If the blade held. An ordinary ax
was but a feather in his hand; it sunk to the
eye in the wood and the helve spUntered. He
Eeemed quite incapable of measuring the
force he laid out, like ordinary men.
SHOVINO BOATS OVEB SHOALS.
When lie stood among a gang of laborers
the contrast made them look like children.
The strolling Indians would stare at him in
amazement a few moments, and then with a
deep "Ugh" would hasten out of sight as
rapidly as their dignity would permit.
He was put to do tbe work of two pairs of
oxen; to remove the trunks of trees, out in
lengths of ten or twelve feet, out of the way
of the diggers. He did not drag It aside as
oxen would have done, but, putting his right
11 and under the end of the log, raising it from
the ground, then balancing it across bis left
forearm, ho shot it far out to one side with
all the ease that a skilled workman piles split
cordwood. And thus, day after day, the
giant worked until tho canal was finished.
Freeman's next appearance was on the
boats that plied along the Huron river, in
Michigan, where he was at once angina and
tackle to handle heavy freight What others
could not shove or roll he would pick up and
carry, or perhaps toss. When the heavily
freighted boat stuck on the tipples he often
stepped out of the stern and pushed it over.
The crew would havo scarcely been surprised
if ho had taken both boat and cargo under
his arm aud marched across by land whan
they came to long bends in the river.
It was not long after this time that some
sporting men unfortunately heard of this uncelebrated giant and concluded that thsre
was "money in liim." Freeman was as simple as a child. He lacked ambition, had no
desire to exhibit or push himself, and possessed a most amiable disposition. Any one
could load him, and he never appeared to
realize that he was in anyway remarkable.
This Innocence was taken advantage of by
these sharpers, who determined to turn bis
prodigious powers to their personal advantage. Accordingly, he was persuaded to accompany them to the eastern states under
promise of far more profitable employment
It ls not strange that in such company the
good natured giant soon fell into bad habits.
Unfortunately giants are only men, and th*
gamblers who captured poor Freeman mads
sport of him as tho Philistines made sport of
the helpless Samson.
It is related that at Buffalo thoy sent him
into a dock saloon with a 1,000 pound anchor
under his arm, much as a chopper carries bis
ax, to pawn it for drinks. He got the liquor,
and the barkeeper was glad to treat him for
carrying the anchor out again,
HE DIEO OV CONSUMPTION.
Tho giant's now friends soon traveled to
the sea coast and finally sailed forHugUni
They intended to get the advantage of some
English champion, but they found that they
had an elephant on their hands.
A friendly sparring match as an experiment, with a professional boxer, showed that
for Freeman a match with any living pugilist
was impossible. The giant's faoe could not
be effectually reached. Blows on bis body
might as well have been planted on a sand
bag, while his blows were given with the
force of a pile driver, and no matter what
they mot, the obstacle went to the earth.
By tho ruse of representing him aa large
and strong, but wholly Ignorant of the
science, his backers finally succeeded in
making a match with a noted prise fighter.
The part ies came on tho ground, but at tha
first sight of Freeman his opponent turned
away, saying: "I came to fight with a large
man, not with a mountain." Tha seconds
aud referees thereupon declared the match
fairly "off."
And now the unlucky giant became aware
of tho worthlessness of his mercenary friends.
While thero was a prospect that he could win
fortunes for them they had lured him far
away from his homo and his few humblo
friends; but now, finding that no money was
to bo made, thoy basely left him alone tn a
strange land, without friends or resources.     ■
From Michigan to Liverpool the style of
living luul   boon  entirely new to   the simple
and temperately reared countrymen. Intemperance, lute hours and recklessness had undermined his hoalth, and a pulmonary trouble was developed. His enormous strength
soon failed him, and, uncared for and helpless, ho shortly after died of consumption.
At this time probably no human being
knows his resting place.
During Freeman's entire life no refining Influence cnino near him; no one tried to enlighten and beautify the mind and soul which
might have informed and Irradiated his splendid body. So perished In his prime perhaps
the most magnificent specimen of physical
manhood that tho United States has ever
produced.—Detroit Free Press,
Points on Pins.
Law has deigned to notice the pin. Not
long before the close of the reign of Henry
VIII, a law was passed entitled, "An Acta
for the true Makyng of Pyunes," enacting
that tho price should not be "more than 6s.
8d. a thousand." In tho days when phis were
rare thoy were a very acceptable present j
"instead of the gifts, a composition was
sometimes received in money;" this was
called, of course, pin money, a term which
has been extended to a sum of money "secured by a husband on his marriage for the
private expenses of his wife." Addison has
recorded his dislike of what he calls "the doctrine of pin money;" "it ls," he writes in
im-18. ''of late date, and it is for the Interests of both sexes to keep It from spreading."
He proposed "needle money" as a better
name, as It "would have implied something
of good housewifery."—Qood Housekeeping

AN AMERICAN CONFERENCE.
A conference shortly to be lipid in
Washington, between representatives of
all the American countries, will give Mb.
Blaine the opportunity nl' his life. He
is the most conspicuous living exponent
of the doctrine that the United States
should cultivate close relations with the
other nations of tlie Western hemisphere,
and should tench them to look to it ns a
leader and guardian. If, during his term
of office, he can lay the foundations of a
solid American system, he will win a
reputation that will he worth more to
him than the presidency, and the principal objects of the conference ns announced ore :
First—Discuss some plan of arbitration
for the settlement of disputes, that may
hereafter arise between the different
countries represented.
Second—To consider questions relating
to the improvement of business intercourse, and means of direct communication between them.
Third—To devise uniform systems of
weights and measures,  silver coinage
patent   rights,   copyrights   and  trade
marks.
Fourth—To encourage such reciprocal
relations and customs union, as will be
beneficial to all.
There would appear to be n good many
difficulties in the way of this programme
se far as arbitration is concerned, it is
already the general rule among all American powers ; although, of course, there
have been some recent exceptions.
The President of tlie United States has
arbitrated to the satisfaction of nil parties
boundary disputes between Paraguay
and Brazil, and Costa Elca and Nicaragua. On tho second point, says an
American exchange, the conference will
have comparatively little tn do. If the
United States decides either to grant
subsidies to steamship lines, or lo abolish
the dutieB on shipbuilding materials, it
will have improved "meaiiB of direct
communication " with the South American countries.
The third item will present more difficulty.
The uniform standard ol coinage will
lie the stumbling block here, for while it
would be easy enough to bring nil the
various American dollars to a common
basis, their free admission into circulation
in the United States would, probably,
upset their bi-metnllio syslem, and drive
gold out of the country.
But it is on the fourth proposition that
Ma. Blaine's statesmanship is in most
danger of shipwreck. It is hard to see
how he can possibly carry out the objects
of the conference in regard to a customs
union and retain his standing in his
party. Customs union with Mexico and
her tropical neighbors would mean free
oranges, lemons and sugar, and with the
Argentine Republic it would mean free
wool, and the question of wool duties was
the central issue of the lust presidential
campaign.
says the McLeod Gazette, will he bailed
with general satisfaction by the Northwest. It is to give the Northwest, after
the present Legislature is expired, tbe
samp control ol liquor legislation as is
possessed by the Provincial Legislatures.
Tlie bill was read the lirst time, and al-
llinugb introduced late in the session,
will probably gn through. This will bo.
annther concession to the Northwest for
which we can thank Mr. Dewdney and
tbo other Northwest members. Tho only
thing we regret is that the bill does nol
empower the present assembly to deal
with the ipiostion, and thus get a very
vexatious matter disposed of. It is
probable, however, thai Ibis irould not
be dune, and we luayat least be thankful thai steps have been taken to definitely
settle tile question, even if we must wait
until the present assembly expires.

Eabl Brownlow, who is mentioned as
the successor of Lord Londonderry in the
Vice-royalty of frelnnd, is a Conservative
peer, who held a minor office in the lirst
Salisbury ministry formed after the defeat of Mr. (iladstone in 1885. He sat in
the Commons before bis elevation to the
House of Lords, and in 1887 was made
Paymaster-General, nn olliee in the Ministry without cabinet rank or emolument.
In a recent sermon in Liverpool Dr.
Parker declared that it was difficult for a
grammarian tn enter into tbe Kingdom
of Heaven. "How hardly," said he,
"shall they who know the powers of
critical apparatus enter into that Kingdom?" There is undoubted truth in this
suggestive hyperbole, which was used in
exposition of the law that love is a condition of spiritual nutniieuuUlon, Happily
the "wood-choppers," the men who
"dwell upon the proposition und tbe adverb, and wring out the poor little thing
until it erieB, 'For pity's sake go on to
the next word,'" are becoming exceedingly rare, nt least on this side of tbe Atlantic.
Tils New York .Sua nsks: "How would
the Dominion use the treaty-making
power should it ever be conceded to her
by the mother country? She would,
provided the Liberals were in power nt
Ottawa, probably, invite the United
States to conclude n trenty bused upon
the principle of complete reciprocity
with regard as well to manufactured ns
to natural products. Suppose, however,
that we should decline to enter into such
an agreement on the ground thnt a free
interchange of products is one of the privileges reserved for states which are
members of our union. Would not,
then, the feeling excited in Canada in
favor of acquiring the treaty-making
function and of employing it to effect
commercial union with the United States
tend to transform itself into a vehement
impulse toward annexation."

i Here Aro Threo Quiii Stories n-oin the
IIIUh or l.am.i>:!i County*
Threo funny fox cUasca aro reported from
different localities in this county. At Landla
valley a fox had been started and thirty-five
hounds and a half dozen cross county riders
were in lively pursuit. Tho trail led among
tho fields and over tho hills fpr several miles,
and then took tho hounds to tho turnpike.
Thero, in tho mlddlo of tho piko, the scent
was lost. The dogs maneuvered and beat
about here, thero and everywhere, but tho
' trail could not be found. A teamster on his
way to town with a load of hay had passod
tho spot whero tho trail was lost in tho pike
' only a minute before tho hounds burst on the
road In full cry.   Tho teamster stopped on
. seeing  the pack  and tho riders   following
■ them, to watch tho result of tho maneuver-
| ing.
"Which way did ho go?" shouted one of
the hunters.
"Dunnol" the teamster shouted back,
"Didn't seo him."
After watching tho dog and the hunters for
a few minutes tho teamster went on. The
hunters unanimously declared that thero had
never beforo been such an inoxplicablo loss of
a fox's trail, und bad to givo up tho chase.
After going a inilo or so, 08 ho tells tho story,
tho teamster with tho hay stopped his horses
to talk with an acquaintance ho met on tho
road, and as thoy were talking a fox jumped
1 out of tho hay at tho rear end, landed tn tho
road, and trotted leisurely away to cover.
"Well, I'll bo jiggered!" suid tho teamster,
and told his friend about tho way tho huuters
had lost tho trail a mile back. They both
concluded that tho only explanation of it was
that the fox had jumped into tho road just
behind tho load of hay as it was passing, and,
being a cunning old customer, had jumped on
the hay and burrowed into it out of sight tn>
fore tho dogs camo up hi full cry. He had
doubtless enjoyed tho discomfituro of both
hounds and hunters, as it was revealed to him
by tho short parloy with tho teamster, and
when the wagon stopped a mile away from
the last trail he had thought that a good opportunity to leave his hiding placoand had
done so,
At Falrville a party of hunters, with a largo
pack of hounds, wero l*xl n long and circuitous choso by a fox, and at last tho trail took
them to Farmer Edward lialler's garden.
There tho scent was lost and could not bo recovered. The chase was abandoned. An
hour later Mr, Hallor was looking out of a
back window and was surprised to see tho
fox jump out of a big Dutch oven In tho garden, the door of which Is four feet from tho
ground, and hurry away to his native hills.
During another chnso in Laudis valley tho
fox led tho hunters aud dogs a long chase
over a hard country and then struck for tho
Lltitz pike, abovo HefTsvillo. Tho trail followed tho pike a long distance and then took
to the fields again. Tho chaso lasted until
late in tho afternoon, when tho fox threw tho
hunters off tho scout. Toward night the fox's
hiding placo was discovered by accident. It
had entered a farm yard near Kissel hill and
taken refugo in tho kennel of ono of tho very
hounds that wero in tho chase.—Lancaster
(Pa.) Dispatch.
Waxed Tnpor Hags.
A new article called "tho Sparks* waxed
paper bag" ls now being extensively introduced, and is noticeable for its novel qualities, Tho exterior is like any paper bag, but
tho interior surface is lined with a thin film
of fluo parafiluo wax, which renders tho bng
substantially air tight and water proof. Tho
cost ls but a trifio moro than tho common
paper bug.
Tobacco, snuff, cigars, etc., put up in thoso
bags aro preserved in perfect condition, drying and loss of aroma being prevented. In
like manner confectionery, fruit aud other
eatables are kept intact, wholesomo and
fresh. As thoso bags may bo made translucent they render tho package attractive,
and this adds a desirable selling quality, independent of other merits. Druggists use
them for enveloping all kinds of preparations.; grocors find them very desirable In
preserving in fresh condition coffee, tea, dried
beef, bains, cheese, sugar and other foods.
The difference between two packages of
coffee, ono put up in tho ordinary paper bag
and the other In a Sparks' waxed paper bag,
is very striking. A pound of coffee in ordinary paper, when brought Into a room or
car, is scented by everybody at once; but if
the waxed paper bag is used tho contents cannot be detected; thero is no escape of aroma,
tho preservation ls complete. These waxed
paper bags are also found to be of superior
value for wheat, flour, buckwheat, oatmeal,
Indian meal, etc. The contents aro kept
fresh, and access of moisture or other contamination Is prevented. For packing content, fertilizers, etc., tho bags are also
useful.
Furs stored in theso bags with tho smallest
quantity of camphor or other insecticide are
rendered moth proof. Valuable clothing
may, in like manner, bo conveniently pro-
served.—Scientific American.

Wan I was working over to Holyworthy
No. 4 was always telling me to turn over his
mattress ivory day. But I won't turn over
nobody's mattress more than onct a week-
no, I won't; but the byo was always telling
me to do It. There was no peaco for me day
or night with his talking and bossing; so I
used to say "yis" ivory time ho asked mo.
But he was a shyly cratur, and wan day I
found a pin stuck in tho bottom side of the
mattress; so I tuk it out and put it in his
towel, but the next day it was in tho same
place agen. To save mo sowl I couldn't think
what he put it there for till wan day he sez,
sez he.
"You haven't turned me mattress tho day,
Miss Dolan," sez he.
"Yis, I have," sez I Howly mother, forgive the lie.
"No, you haven't, Miss Dolan," sez he, and
walked out jlst as cool as you plaze.
Thin I knew what ho was up to; and so
Ivory day, instead of turning tho mattress, I
shtuck tbe pin on the other side, and, bedadl
he niver asked me a word, and on Christmas

Only One Candidate.
Tha practice of "lobbying" sometimes
arises from the most innocent of motives, and
ls carried on by persons whom one would never
■uspect of doing it. A class of little girls in
a certain primary school had resolved to
form themselves Into a secret society, and accordingly planned a meeting for tbe election
of officers.
One child, who hod always been deservedly
popular, went about at recess saying to one
and another, "Now remember, Susie Joy
will make a nice vice president, and Nellie
Smart must be treasurer."
Her classmates quite agreed with ber, and
no comment was made until another little
girl, a newcomer, who was not accustomed
to the leadership of this young lobbyist, bethought herself to ask;
"But who will be president?"
The small wire puller paused and looked at
her with astonishment Then she said, in a
genuinely aggrieved tone: "Why, I thought
you would all want mo I You always do put
ni4 ut the head of things I"—Youth's Companion.

Sir: -We embrace this opportunity of congratulating  you  upon the wide-spread repu- '
tali.ni  ihis justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J. |
Collis   Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has famed foi
itself,   not only 111 Hindostan,   but   all ovel
the East.    As a remedy of general utility,
we  much  question   whether  a better is imported  Into tin.' country,   and  we shall be
glad  in heat of Its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home,    The other brands,   we j
are happy to say, are now relegated  to  ihe,
native   ba/aars, and fudging from their Balet
we  fancy   thelt   sojurn   there  will be but '
evanescent.   We  could multiply instances
infinitum >>f the  extraordinary   efficacy of
Mr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrltce,
and   2nd    Dysentery    Spasms,    Cramps, |
Neuralgia, the Vomiting "f Pregnancy, and !
as     general  Sedative,  tlint  have occurred

years.    In Choleraic Diarrhcea, and even  if I
the  more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we I
have witnessed ils controlling  power.     We j
have   never   used   '.ny   other   foim   of   lliis
medicine  than  Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction  that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense ol duty we owe to the proj :
lesion   and   the   public,    as   we ore of the
opinion  tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, Is  A  DELIBERA'"E

Youth* and OI«*ur«M« anaoklus;.
In tbe Cotoni.1 report of tbe doings of
two young boys in Victoria, under tbo
head of " Youthful BhoplUtoraA appears
tbe following' paragraph: ' Hie boys,
who are 18 mid lo years old respectively,
went into Franks' general fancy store in
Johnson street, and asked to see silk
handkerchiefs. Ihey were Bhown the
stock, and while the elder was looking
over tbe handkerchiefs the younger
'italics are our own) rated tobeahoton
cigarette holder*/', It is very plainly to
lie seen from tbe hbbve that Mr, Franks
belongs to a class of merchants too frequently to be found in this province, who
make a living by selling tobacco and
cigarette poller*, to boyB. It is quite n
common sight to see little fellows scarcely tbe height of an ordinary tabli- puffing
away in the open street without let or
hindrance from anybody, and we ire not
"oing beyond the truth when we say lhat
there are to be found scores
of shopkeepers who not only sell
tbe material to those boys, lint
almost encourage them in the habit. Let
anybody take a walk through imr streets
at almost anv hour of the dav and we
feel convinced that they will be impressed, and sorrowfully too, with the
truth sf our assertions, so far as the
hoys are concerned. For these ('allire
boys we fed truly sorry, for Mr. Franks
who bo forgot himself and his duty to
society as to "look up" cigarette- holders
to sell to it boy of ten years of age, we
feel none—our onlv regret and we might
add surprise is that Mr. Richards, the
Police Magistrate, did not treat Mr.
Franks to a lecture which would carry
with it tbe public Indignation, but also a
reproof which would convince these tobacco selling gentry of the enormity of
their sin against society at large.

NOTICE.
I
lauprovlisa   tlie   ('eint'tcr,.
Every one who is interested in tbe
welfare of Nanaimo will have read with
pleasure tbe determination of the City
Council to take some stops towards improving the conditions of Clod's Acre.
Verv many persons make a lioint of visiting the cemetery on Sunday and doing
what tbev can towards the particular
spot that is especially dear to them as
being the last resting place of some member sf their family or of a friend. Hut of
course those going out thero on a short
visit cannot do all they would wish, and
would doubtless be willing to subscribe
a small annual sum to secure tbe services
of a competent man to look after tbe
graves. There is also a small piece of
sidewalk needed to make a continuous
walk from town to the cemetery, which
doubtless the Corporation will at an early
date make complete. The matter of
tidying up tlie walks and building a
small house to accommodate the man
whs would look after the graves and
walks, was discussed in a most liberal
manner in the Council on Monday evening and it only needs the hearty conjunction of tlie people with the Aldermen
to make it an established fact. Tbe relatives of many Who arc buried there
have of course left the country and some
provision would probably he made '->
have the graves of these people looked
after.

Tlse   sardonyx   Arrives*
The steamer Sardonyx, which met with
a serious accident iip the Skeena a few
days ago, arrived at ber dock 111 Victoria
on Sunday afternoon, the damages to her
bottom having been roughly patched up
to enable her to make the down trip safely.
On Friday sho completed unloading hor
cargo at Dempster's wharf and was floated
when the tide came up, the bole in her
port sitle being covered with heavy
planking. The trip down was a very
quick one, the fastest the steamer lias
ever made. Her good time was due to
the fact that there were no stoppages
and the steamer was light. Yesterday
afternoon she went to Ksquiinall, where
she will be docked this morning, All
tbat needs to be done to her will bo the
rivetting on of a new steel plate where
the roek pierced her bottom, and she will
he again as good as new. While in the
dock the new steam windlass, manufactured in Providence, U. I., will he placed
in position, and the steamship will be
ready to resume her route in a few- days.

Tbe s;lilii<'«r<luisti,>ii iii Vancouver.
We have received advices of another
largely attended meeting al Vancouver
to protest against the employment of
Chinese in any capacity whatever in that
city. Vancouver is evidently alive to the
grave responsibility Incurred by any city
in importing and encouraging any class
of labor which only serves to drain the
country *)f its temporary adoption, of what
money it can earn, anil in return does
not, if possible to avoid It, return anything to the colters of the morchants and
others engaged in trade in that country.
The time has passed when cheap white
labor was unattainable, and most oi our
Western cities have to face the same demand for employment for the working
classes as thc Eastern towns.

The City Council has announced its intention of starting the Corporation workmen raising the sidewalk on Coin mercial
street iu front of W. Wilson new store.
While Wishing to congratulate theni on
their determination tn improve this particular spot we wish lo ]mint out that
there are several very had places in the
sidewalk on our principal business street.

ft'orlilddeu   Liquor.
The dusky Aborigine in spite ol
stringent legislation on the subject, continues to obtain the forbidden whiskev.
It does not seem to occur to the vender
or donor of the illicit beverage that in
case of the Indians being hauled up he-
fere a Justine of tbe Peace, tharthe verv
person who he thought he was liefriend-
mgwill be the lirst tn tell the whole story
and possibly without even being summoned will often lay information in the
hope of obtaining half the line. The unfortunate white men who most frequently
figure in theBe caseB are sailors, and a
word of warning to them may be in order.
