A New Explosive,
tine nf the newest military explosives
has jusl been experimented with In England on tin elaborate scale and with surprising results. It possesses, under ordinary circumstances, a striking disinclination to explode. Hammer It, it is harmless
as clay. Put it in the fire, it smoulders
dully. Applv friction, it is unresponsive.
Shock it With an electric spark, or even 11
lightning holt, it is harmless as a brickbat. Put n mass of il on a pile of gunpowder and ignite the latter, it is hurled
to one side, unoxploded. In brief, it may
be handled and transported as freely and
as safely ns sn much sand. But apply a
detonating cap properly, and it explodes
with terrific force, far greater and more
dcstrui live than thai of dynamite; giving
oll'no smoke, no tlame, niul no noxious
fumes. Its peculiar qualities of action, as
well as the safety of its use, Indicates thai
it will prove valuable In mining ami other
peaceful arts.

and nothing else. There lias been and
always will be a difference of opinion as
to the best methods to be adopted In governing any eity; but as we have pointed
out time and again, we believe that 11
wise and vigorous policy is necessary In
order to put the city in the position which
it ought to occupy. Tbe times change
and people change with tbem; cities rise
and fall; some men accumulate wealth
through the forgiiijf ahead nf live towns.
and some lose their grip; and Instead uf
blossoming out as millionaires are left tt,
mourn the vanishing of the thousands
which they have invested. It is true thai
wealth only comes to the few. while the
many are doomed to comparative independence or comparative poverty.
But what is wanted in this town are
men who are alive to its future possibilities ; men who are imbued with a firm and
lasting faith In the resources of the city
and district. Croakers are ton prevalent
everywhere. There are always plenty to
be found in every city who can nnd will
predict disaster and ruin to everything
which tends to common Improvements.
They are an incubus, a deadweight to
everything which has for its object the
well-beinf? oi the whole and not Hie few.
The question naturally arises, what is the
best course to pursue? Reforms, ns past
history teaches, nr» brought about only
by slow nnd persistent effort. Cities
wbieb are to-dny tlie busy marts of commerce, and whose citizens are the most
alive to progressive principles, struggled
along from band to mouth, as it were,
without any one seeing any prospects of
future greatness, or any hope in the dim
vista of the future to enable them
to have any abiding faith in the
place of their birth or adoption. As far
ns the future of this eity is concerned we
have [no fear. Untoward influences may
cramp its growth; the niggardly policy of
those who should be most concerned in
its welfare may retartl the progress, and
seriously hinder the advancement which
the city ought to make, Still we believe
that this city has been blessed by nature
with resources and advantages which the
perversity of mankind can not destroy.
They may be stumbling blocks in the
way; they may prove themselves inimical
to its interests; tbev may be blind to
every advantage except their dwn, and
still we repeat that the eity will survive
nil the opposition of those whose interests
nre reckoned only by tbe immediate call
upon their pockets to pay fur those
developments and Improvements, which
could they but see it would repay them
a hundredfold. Will it. always remain in
its present position'.' Is there are a grand
future for the black diamond city? We
believe, in fact wo know there must be.
And while we may deplore the inactivity
and the utter want of faith on the part ol
those who should be most directly con-
csrned in all things which are of public
benefit we cannot lose faith in what we
believe to be the grand future of this
city. As n matter of fact firms are what
its citizens make tuicm. If then merchants and business men are agreed that
their cities or towns, or villages will never
amount tn anything, that tbev will nnd
must, in the ordinary course ot nature
be nothing more than they
at present happen to be bo surely will
they remain in that condition, until an
avalanche of public opinion forces tbem
to be alive to their own Interests. Ids
passing Btrange that such should be the
case, but nevertheless Instances we might
cite would prove the truth of our statements. There is nn old saying which is
as follows: 'Some i,,en are born great,
some achieve greatness, and some have
greatness thrust upon tbem. "
and what is true of men will apply with
equal force, to the congregations of men
—cities. Hut it does seem a pity that
either a man or a city must be so pulseless and inactive, so tlead to bis own interests, that he or it requires greatness to
be thrust forward before grasping the opportunity which ordinary foresight, would
enable them to obtain. It is needless for
this paper to say that its Interests in Nanaimo me uennine, it has no political axe
to grind, no petty personal influences in
subserve, and so long as it has a voice,
however weak and small it may be it will
always be found on the side of progress.
And it will always be found ready to do
what it can towards furthering, not liintl-

toniciiTCii ti. OPERATIONS,
The funnels in Ihe vicinity of Nanaimo
are anxious I,, commence' their spring
operations, bid say thai ihe recent heavy
| rains have made lln- ground so wel lhal il
is Impossible to do mtich plowing or clearing. Tin- roads are In a very bad condition, Water Ins on il,em after each
shower anil in many nlaces they are full
ni ruts iin.l holes. \ good deal of money
bus certainlv been expended on tie
cotintty roads of Nanaimo district, bid
according lo nil Recounts there is room for
a greal deal of improvement. Let us see
whal next summer will bring forth.
Fanners claim thatngreal deal of work
has been done on lhc roads of Ibe outlying districts in un endeavor lo open
them up, while very little in comparison
bus been effected on the roads in the near
radius of Nanaimo.
TEXAD 1 MIXES.
A party of capitalists nro in town en
route for Texada,.to look over the island
and determine if possible some accurate
idea of its worth as a quartz producer,
The recent discoveries on Texada aeern to
have given tbe owners of claims there, an
increased idea ofthe worth and Importance
of their prospects, It might, be as well to
sav that all the work done in Ihe way of
developing claims nn Ibe island has beer
ol'the mnsf primitive description, and
that it is impossible to tell with anv degree of certainty what merit Ihe different
claims actually possess from a mineral
point of view, until considerable development work is done upon them. Some of
Ibe Nanaimo owners nf claims ask big
fienrcs for their '-prospect holes,'' and
they niiiv he worth more than the amouni
asked, hut thai can onlv be determined
after the expenditure of money in showing up whal Ihesc claims ncluallycontnin.
Dorrmatie Curiosities,
Dntrs have been used on   Ihe singe, on
the tight rope and in the saddle, as wed
as on pastures and hunting grounds, and
their usefulness as milHsrvpicketsentries
has been  demonstrated   in   Prussia  and :
Relelum by Ihe experiments of competent I
trainers i but the strangest use  of man's
truest friend is reported from Ihe   Portuguese colonv of Mozambique, in   Eastern
Africa, Huring the Inst convention  ofthe
anli-sliivery commissioners   several   witnesses hinted   that   the   Anil,inn   man-
hunters bad more than once secured Ibe
aid of the Portuguese  settlers and their..
packs of gaunt bloodhounds, and though 1 ■
the colonist themselves deny that charge, j
tbev admit that trained mastiffs have now
and then been employed to facilitate the
collection  of church tithes.  Thodogmat-
ists of that diocese  must  certainly have
succeeded in impressing the natives wilh
the perils of unbelief.
A Snaky Paradise,
Ceylon, (he sunny Isle—"where even-
prospect pleases anil man alone is vile,"
is inhabited by half n ifnrcn different
races, some nf which can hardly be said
tn evince more than the averafo degree
of human malice; hut- it would he a stil1
greater mistake to support- that the
vileness of local phenomena is limited to
the two-legged products of that qualified
paradise, lis serpents are not conlent
wilh posing in the foliage of forbidden
trees, hut invade tie- banana orchards
and even the cabins of the natives. The
family of goals is represented hv at least
twenty different species, filling the air of
the coast-swamps in swarms which, in
the words of a recent explorer, "fall upon
the traveler like a shower of hoi  ashes."

HIIAlll- STREET.
Wharf street in winter was always a
source of continent on account of its
being nearly ankle deep in mini, but now
that one of our citizens has exercised his
right and erected a building out to the
tlio appearance of Wbarf
ituse a stranger to wonder
who laid out the roads here, and how he
did it. We have, in the opinion of everyone who visits this city, one of the
prettiest townsites on the Northern Pacific
coast. All the city needs is a decenl
amount of cleanliness in regard In streets
and sidewalks and that care be exercised
in permitting only substantial buildings to
b6 erected within the city limits. We don'l
want a Boom in Nanaimo, but wish to see
it recognized as a live nml likely town
capable of steady advance.
BOMETHIKCl ROTTEN.
All official report says there were fifty
deliberate murders in Chicago in 1.4SK.
t mly one of tbe murderers was hanged '.
Thirty-six escaped punishment and thirteen are in prison, though the law, as i;
stands, says the murderer shall go to the
scaffold, there is something rotten In
the State of Denmark. The prepetrntors
of the greatest crimes against God and
mull are granted immunity here. By
•whom? That is the question. Our laws,
on the face of things, are all right. They
appear to be good instruments for (be
punishment ol criminals. Vou note how
the murderers escape justice! One man
out of fifty deserving of the severest penalty on the statute hooks went to the senf-
ioid in 1888.—Canadian-American.
