statesmen are so eminently distinguished
and such qualities it will ever lie my earnest wish to imitate. The circumstance

A   GIRL   MINING   EXPERT.
Kho   Soldom   Errs In   Her Jndcment on m
Clitliu and Makes Lot* of Money.
"Arizona has the only girl mining expert
in the world," said CoL Juhn Hull of Tucson
to an Examiner representative last night at
tho Baldwin. "For years sho has followed
up all the now camps and [iassed judgment
on mines and usually engaged in souio kind
of business In them, as well as staked out and
developed claims for herself. Her name is
Nellio (.'ashman, nnd she is known throughout
all the mining towns of Arizona. Just now
she is milking a pull tor tho Harqua Hala
mines. Sho has just besa hero and bought a
restaurant outilt for tho now camp, and
while her employes set out bacon and beans
to tho flannel shirted miners for a dollar
npieco sho will make her locations and begin
mining as usual.
"She is a wondorfuUy plucky girl It Is
about nine years uow since she flrst came to
Tucson. Him was from Dodgo City, Kan.,
and could not havo been more than 17 years
old. She got to examining tho oro as it came
out of the Tucson mines, and was soon as
good a judgo of its valuo as her brother Jim,
who worked in ono of them. Tho boys pretty
soon began betting on her judgment, more
in fun thtin anything elso, but what was
their surprise to find that she was a wonderfully good guessor anil hit It closo about
overy time. Her famo spread, and miners,
always superstitious, got an Idea tUut to
havo her around and get her good opinion
some way brought luck. Sho knew whero to
dig for ore, too, and somo of tho oro in tho
Contention was found hy following her advice in running a drift
"Over in Graham county sho made a hit ono
day on copper, and when she went to Tombstone afterwards she passed her judgment on
somo mines there. Bill Wiggins sold the Excelsior and Grand View mines on her advice,
and tho only dividond they over yielded was
tho £15,000 ho got for them. Other mince
wero bought after she had examined and reported favorably on them. They aro good
paying properties now. In Tucson, Blsboo,
Touibstono and other camps Miss Cashman
lias conducted general stores and big lodging
houses for the miners. Sho was also in business at Castlo Dome. Sho ls as adventurous
in pushing forward to a uow region as any
nomadic miner. No sooner does sho hear of
a new camp than sho starts for It Sho has
had so much experience that she almost In-
variably turns it to good account, getting
town lots, placer sites and lode claims for
noxt to nothing nnd unloading at a big profit.
At flrst sho did not get out of tho camps soon
enough. Consequently sho has beon many
times rich and poor. Sho has indomitable
pluck, though, and if sho goes broke In ouo
placo sho soon makes n turn and gets up
again. It is phonomenal how nonchalantly
sho takes a reverse. Sho is just as level
headed, self contained and serene as ii she
had made 11 fortune. It makes no difference,
so far as nppcarances go. Miss Cashman is a
rather toll, dark eyed girl. She lsBomowhut
angular in appearance and has brown hair.
Going about among llio mines, or climbing
tho hills for outcroppings, sho wears heavy
shoes and strong Olotnos, usually covered
with a cloak, worn neglige. Sho is a rapid
walker and a quick, tnclsivo talker. Her
lunguago is good. Shu is considerable of a
reodor, and ou most all subjects Is very well
informed. Sho will bo tho (lrst woman in tho
new camp of Harqua Hala, whero thoro arc
probably now fifteen hundred men."—San

Disposal of stock.—The lust few days
have witnessed the purchasing ofa large
amount of dry goods, millinery and mens
furnishings from the cost price snle at
Arthur Bullock's. We always contend
that in small towns it is Impossible to
humbug the public as to prices, as they
are well aware when an article is offered
much below its value, and hence the reason of the crowd of customers to be seen
at Bullock's at all hours of the day. So
don't fail to avoid vou reels nf the oppor
tutiitv.
EiMTiut CoUHIEB: What is the matter
with the Free Presst I sec that it had a
lender on Thursday evening about
its free c,iliinms. Is it begging
for some one to give il some
reading matter to try and fill up with?
And lie says he is always pleased to publish bona fide cnuinumicatious, provided
they contain no "unseeiningly language"
and do not contain personal abuse.
Would it not bras well if It would
drop its personal abuse in its "Echoes
from Mount Benson?" For lnm sure
that there is neither sense not- humor in
il. It is an old saying that "too much
of a good thing gets disgusting.'' Why
does he not give us something that would
be interest ing instead of repeating Ids
advertisements threo times ovor? 1 am
sure we are satisfied to sec them once.
if he can't publish a semi-weekly without
doubling or trebling the advertisements
he had better publish oneeo month and
then he would be able to give us Borne
news, as lie would have lime In collect il.
Before your paper started lu- uovoi went
out to collect any news except from his
nllicc Ui the coin t house an,I buck. 1 should
think he ought to feel small lo think thai
he has been iu the paper business for the
last fifteen years ami in all that time ho
bus not been able to give us a paper like
your weekly that you sent oul on Wednesday. But 1 think the old man has
been so long in the mountains tbat he
is getting in Ids dotage and wants some
one to doa little writing for bim. Thai
IS why he is pleading to the public to assist him; poor -'old man" 1 feel for htm.

The modes of death's approach arc various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Trrroat

that everyone, without exception receives

Was Tliero Ever Snoh a Dob?
A correspondent sent mo some time ago on
excellent dog story which ho had culled from
a Sunday school paper published here In Boston. I mado an attempt, through my sporting commissioner, to trace tho anecdote to its
source, but we wero not successful. Possibly
its publication in this column will meet thu
oyo of somebody who can confirm its truth.
Tho dog's name was Punch, and ho is described as a resident of Boston. He hod been
accustomed to havo three extensive meals n
day, which his master, thinking quito rightly
to hotter his condition by so doing, reduced
to ono meal, per saltum. Tho result Is thus
described:
Our dog's first day was anxious and expectant. Ho ato his heavy meal, and barked
In vain tor bis supper. The second was like
unto It; the third and tho fourth Punch began to considor. The family, watching tbat
midday meal on tho fourth day, saw Mr.
Punch dlvldo his portion Into two equal
shares, Ono of these bo seized and pushed
under a bench, then, returning, devoured the
remainder. At supper timo tho same performance was gone through. At breakfast
"his cupboard was bare," but ha had provided for three meals c, day, and ever since,
liko a well regulated dog, puts himself upon
"rations."
Can any of my correspondents match or
confirm this interesting and not incredible
talef—Boston Post
Appropriateness of Clerks.
Much has been said and written about tho
innpproprlateness of certain clerks in certain
places—a Gentleman at a glovo counter, for
instance, or a lady behind tho cigar caso of s
restaurant Now let mo toll you that those
things rogulato themselves bettor than isgon-
crally supposed. Tho ono thing that a clerk
want3 to accomplish is to croato a reputation
in point ot largo solos. Sox helps in this to
an appreciable extent Ono sex prefers to bo
waited upon by tho other, and as a rulo
you will find an obliging gentleman behind
tho glovo or tho silk oountsr of a store moro
valuable to his employer t linn a first class lady-
clerk. In tho same way many of tho incongruities of clerking ore readily oxplaincd.
Our heads aro more level thau somo people
would suppose, to see uy in our surroundings.
What, is moro, storekeepers are just as well
nwai'o of this natural or sexual fitness of
sales peoplo to special places as wo are. It
would be well for thoso who are not to post
themselves on the subject.
Tho next thing, from oor point of view, to
a place whero thero is lots of work and littlo
trouble is a placo whero by somo element of
natural fitness wo can make tho annoyance
subserve personal success In tho matter of
sales.—Chicago Nows.

GERMANY  AND   THE   PRESS.
Thk Press of the different provinces of
Canada, us a rule, enjoy greater latitude
than in many countries. It is true that
in some of the provinces there has been
a disposition to muzzle the press to a certain extent, but taken all in all, there
are very many privileges enjoyed by it,
which are unknown to the Press of other
countries, especially in some of the countries of Europe.
It is a cause for the gravest suspicion
when the public men of any country become afraid of fair and legitimate press
criticism, and when the Press is proscribed grave fears may well be entertained for the future of their country. A
new press law has been presented by the
German Government to the Reichstag,
which if adopted, will effectually muzzle
free discussion in Germany. Professedly
it shuts off debate only on those fundamentals the stability which is necessary
to the safety of society, but
when by law all attacks on or criticism
of the monarchy, or the person of tlie
sovereign, of religion, marriage and property are made penal offences, to be
punished by three veins imprisonment
and bv banishment from certain districts
of the country, it is not hard to say that
under a broad interpretation, all discussion of every sort relating to burning
questions may be brought to a summary
close. Under this law any journal whose
writers have been twice convicted within
one year may lie finally suppressed. It
is very apparent to any observer that this
new movement is in harmony with the
general tendency to absolutism and materialism, now unmistakably dominant
in Germany. That meat country is
fast becoming a military camp,
with the interests, the ideas, the aims
and objects o! a camp. The government
is pursuing a consistent policy of repression in every department. Even tier
universities, which have given Germany
her intellectual leadership of the world,
ore beginning to suffer, In political
economy, for instance, the policy of the
government has been to steadily discourage the study and to confine it within
smaller and smaller limits, so that the
importance of political economy in the
universities is steadily diminishing.
In the some way, by the prizes offered
for the pursuit of applied science—science,
that is, which is immediately productive
in a pecuniary way—the pursuit of pure
science has been greatly discouraged.
Germany must have money to support
her military organizations and, if necessary, everything will be sacrificed to that,
and the country which was once the
home of idealism is fast becoming the
home of pure materialism. It is for this
reason, as well as many others, that the
death of the Emperor FaEDEBIOK has so
greatly discouraged the most thoughtful
people in Germany. It is safe to say
that il the Prussian military spirit continues to dominate as at present, Germany will be revolutionized and materialized within the next twenty years.
The young Kaiser is fiery and headstrong,
and the rashness he exhibits iu many

and it is now said that he is at his old

to say of bim :—

EDITORIAL   NOTES.
These are the days of "Trusts." There
is a trust for almost every conceivable
commodity, and, in fact, they multiply
so rapidly thnt it is difficult to follow
them. There are the "oil trust," the
sugnr trust," the paper bug trust," the
"tin trust," the "iron trust," the "steel
trust," all ol them combining to form the
steal trust; and the "trust" that the poor
man tries to obtain when bis funds have
been reduced to a minimum through the
operations of these "trusts,"and he is compelled to ask the grocer and the baker
for the necessaries of life without showing
any "collateral." The latter "trust" ia
not powerful, and the reason is  obvious.
Boui.anokr the doughty, has established himself in England. He ban taken
up comfortable quarters and it would
seem tbat he has made preparations for
a lengthened stay in that country. However, he is near France
and can keep himself thoroughly
posted on every move made on
the French political chess hoard.
And there is no doubt that his
stay in England will entirely depend
upon the political situation in France.
Judging from his erratic course, since he
first gained any considerable notoriety in
France he is a political charlatan of the
first water, an adventurer, unscrupulous
to a degree and lacking the bravery and
elan which go to make up a soldier, and
the wisdom and forethought which make
a statesman. It is not an unsafe prediction to make that Boulanger's star
will, before many months sink so far beneath the political horizon of his country
tbat it will never have time to riBe again.

AMONG CANNIBALS.
TWO   YEARS  WITH  THE  MOST   DEGRADED   RACE   IN   THE   WORLD.
She UncMIlnd Black Tribes In tbe Heart
of Atutralla—They Are Lazy. Cowardly
and Treacherous—Protected by Tobacco
and a Revolver.
A remarkably Interesting lecture was delivered by Dr. Carl Luiuholz, of Chrlatlanla,
Norway, before the Geographical society at
Chickoring hall, New York. Dr. Lumholz Is a
Norwegian scientist who, a few years since,
conceived the Idea of penetrating the wildest
parts of Australia in search of flora and fauna
of the country. He has returned from his
explorations, having passed two years and
more among the least civilized tribes of men
now existing, and having trod over land and
among nations never before visited by white
men.
The most Interesting part of his experiences
were with the canni balLstio tribes in the heart
of Australia, of whom he says:
"Of course, I could not go at once and live
with them, but had to work my way gradually. I had, then, been In Australia more
than a year, and, of course, had acquired
some experience as to how to proceed with
them. I now first began to associate with
tbe so called civilized blacks, and through
them I, by degrees, became acquainted with
other tribes, until at last I lived with natives
who were in the most primitive state of life
and had never come In contact with a white
man. By civilised blacks we generally understand such of the natives as havo to somo
degree been affected by European culture,
but tbe extent of the civilisation may be
briefly summed up thus—that a civilized
black knows that he will be shot dead If he
kills a European; that he ls greatly addicted
to tobacco, and fond of wearing olothos,
which he considers more as an ornament
than as a useful article.
IB! FOWBB Of TOBACCO.
"The greatest trouble was to get the blacks
to take part In my excursions, (or they are
born Idlers and have fundamental objection
to any kind of work. Luckily, In the last
six or seven months of my stay In that region 1 happened to And a really good servant. He stuck to me wherever I went, so
that my position from tbe time of his advent
grew much more favorable. He was by no
means aa ordinary black, but was possessed
of a peculiar vein of naivete, and so ho often
blurted out ideas and Information of the
greatest value. In spite of this, he wss cot
at all free from the treachery characteristic
of all the blacks. Nevertheless, he was better
than the others and saved my life many a
time.
"As far as this method was possible I rode
alone, whilst my blacks went on in front,
one of them leading my pack hone. At the
foot of the mountains a camp was pitched,
and here the horses were left behind, whilst
the saddles andjbrtdlos were placed In a tree,
so that tho wild dogs could not get at them
Then we went up the mountain on foot, tho
dense underwood thereof course being Im
passable for horses.
"My provisions consisted of fourteen to
fifteen pieces of ox flesh, pickled and dried,
with a small quantity of wheat flour to bo
baked Into bread In the hot ashes, and some
sugar. When these provisions wero exhausted, which occurred pretty quickly, we
lived, liked the aborigines, on young snakes,
lizards, larva), eggs and the like. My outfit
Included a large white woolen blanket that
waa a standing wonder and a constant envy
of the blacks. As soon as I unpacked it they
made a clicking noise, expressive of delight,
with their tongues, and roared out: 'Tamin,
tamln!1 (Fat, fatl) Anything that ls very
good they call 'fat.'
"One of the most Important things I
brought with me was tobacco, a greater joy
to tbe aborigines than the very best food. At
Herbert river the blacks did not know, bo-
fore tbe arrival of tbe whites, of any stimulants at all The tobacco served me Instead
of money, and for It they will do anything,
even to selling their wives. Among these
people tobacco is always smoked, never
chewed, and I have often seen a mother, carrying a child on her back, hand It a pipe, at
which the child would take a couple of puffs
with apparent delight They often used to
send In barter small bits of tobacco, wrapped
in gum, to other tribes, and In that way
tobacco la known among remote tribes who
have never themselves come into contact
with Europeans,
"Next to tobacco, my revolver wss of tho
greatest importance to me. Very luckily,
the natives, who do not themselves possess
even bows and arrows, have the greatest respect for fire arms. It is, however, necessary
to keep up your reputation as a good marksman, else you will soon lose their respect
Their astonishment is equally great when you
hit a kangaroo In a resting position, or when
you bring down a bird on the wing. Tneywero
especially afraid of my revolver, which thoy
looked upon as inexhaustible, I made it my
business to keep this fear constantly awake,
and every night before creeping into my hat,
I discharged my baby gun, as they called it,
just In order to refresh their minds as to the
existence of this dreadful weapon.
PRECAUTIOUS.
"Happily for me, I felt in the winter time
the cold at night, owing to the great contrast
with the heat of tbe daytime, and in consequence I awoke several times overy sight and
had to wake the blacks to keep the fire burn-
ing before our huts. This gave tbe blacks
tba Impression that the white man slept but
little and that he was always on the alert and
had the baby gun ready. It was necessary
always to b* on one's guard, as the blacks are
of a very tieacherous and cunning nature,
and one of the most Important precautions
that a colonist learns to take is, 'never to
have a black fellow behind you.1
"I had a good deal of unpleasantness and
many troubles through then-deceit and cunning, which often made me so tired and worried that I waa on the point of giving up the
expedition, but tbe thought of perhaps being
•bis to nttks valuable discoveries in this
strange and interesting country always kept
my spirit* up, and I must say tbat I was not
disappointed, but have returned with later-
eating facta end specimens ot natural history
new to ssisnee, and with an Intimate knowledge of the habits and life of the Australian
aborigines—ono of those unfortunate races
that sn rapidly dying out On the other
band I was cheered in my work by the many
deHghtful impressions I received of the grand,
and splendid scenery arou ' me on my
wanderings, sights I shall never forget When
the tropical snn rose in the early morning
above the trees of the lofty Australian forest
sad awakened nature with Its bright, daz-
slingrays, or when tbe moon appeared above
the mountain ridge and threw her pale light
over the vast plains below, while the mystic,
voices of the night birds rang out on the still,
quiet night, there was a beauty over the
landscape which I could not possibly do
Justice to tf I were to attempt to describe it,
and regretted only that I had nooompanloo
to share It with ma."

WHIPPING A FAILURE.
S.N  EX-WARDEN ON CORPORAL PUNISHMENT   OF   CONVICTS.
A Veteran " Fen " Keeper Declares Tbat
Cruel Funlshments Do Not Accomplish
Good Results—A Suggestion as to State
Reformatories.
"In the light of an experience of nearly
twelve years as one of thc lessees aud as warden of the Missouri penitentiary, I am prepared to state in the most unqualified manner
that 1 believo corporal punishment of convicts is a mistake, that whipping and kindred
tortures should bo abolished, and a humane
system of discipline substituted. Since I retired from the control of the Missouri penitentiary I have visited the leading penal institutions of the eastern cities, and statu as
my conviction that more work and better
work can bo got out of tbe men where tho cat
o' nine tails is banished."
The Bpeoker was ox-Warden Willis, now a
resident of St. Louis, and the listener a
Globe-Democrat reporter.
"You are, then, a believer in tho power of
the stato to reform Its criminals?"
A  BELIEVER   IN  REFORM.
"Emphatically I am. I am glad you asked
tho question, for I want to explain myself.
It is difficult, I would almost say impossible,
to secure tho best results under tho present
system in tho Missouri penitentiary. My
idea is to build a branch, but to let it bo
known as a reformatory, and send to it such
prisoners as thero are hopes of reforming.
Such an institution has just been opened up
at Huntington, Pa, It was intended to be
called penitentiary No. 3, but the legislature changed its scope. Col. McClaughrey,
who, in a long term of years, had made
the Joliet (Ills.) penitentiary tho model
of all prisons in this country, ls in
charge of the Huntington Institution,
being engaged by the stato for life
at $5,000 per annum. The prison must
not be confounded with a reform school. The
Inmates are required to work at trades as in
other penitentiaries, but thoy ore given advantages, such as night schools, books, opportunities to converse with each other in assembly, etc. Prisoners are assigned to Hunting
ton after the manner followed In New York,
In that stato all prisoners are sent first to
Sing Sing. There thoy urn examined by a
board which sits dally, and if hardened or
habitual criminals, or of what is called
strictly the criminal class, thoy ore put to
work at onco In Sing Sing, but otherwise
they aro sent to Elmira, or some ono of tho
other branch penitentiaries, which are much
to be preferred. Thero is in prison life an
existence of casto that is as closely drawn as
among the natives of India.
"I remember that a negro was brought to
Jefferson City one day. I recognized him at
a glance as a former prisoner, and I said:
'You have been hero before, sir.'
"With a clear voice, in which thero was
the slightest tinge of prido, he replied: 'Yob,
sab, but it was for cuttin', sun.'
" 'And what is it now I1 I again asked.
"He hung his head sheepishly as he mumbled out, 'Burglary ami laroony.'
"And that brings mo back to tho reformatory. A man who in a moment of passion
has shot or otbenviso injured another,and
who has always been nn honest and, wo will
say, law abiding citizen, must not bo made to
think that his incarceration puts him on a
moral level with tho burglars, thieves and
cut throats who aro his prison mates. Such
a man is most likely, in tho bitterness of his
spirit, to become unruly, and become a subject for discipline. To whip a man of that
class ls to make him worse. Ho would feel
no contrition for his offense, but while recognizing that he was subjected to the lash he
would only cherish bitter feelings.
MODEL PRISONERS.
"Professional criminals mako the best prisoners, from a keeper's standpoint A second
or third termor is always eagerly sought for
by a contractor. Such a man knows that ho
has nothing to gain by rebellious behavior,
and he sots to work to mako lifo as pleasant
"The idea of life being mado pleasant In a
penitentiary is rather a perverted use of tho
term I"
"Oh, ho; some peoplo could be contented,
I believo, in the middle of tho burning lako.
Negroes are a particularly light hearted lot
I often think of an incident illustrating this
phase of character. It was on a very bright,
but particularly cold December day that a
couple of well fed, lusty colored men connected with the kitchen were lounging about
the yard, when thero was brought to the
'round house' a particularly forlorn specimen.
He was a white man, and had beon arrested
for hog stealing down in tho country somewhere, somo time during tho previous summer. He had lain in jail duringjthe summer,
fall and early winter with no other clothing
than that which ho wore when arrested. The
diet was not over liberal, I suppose, anil the
poor fellow looked like tho frame of a man.
As he walked across tho yard the wind
seemed to fairly blow through both his tatters and his anatomy, and he shivered as he
felt the blast One of the negroes glanced at
the chattering wretch, and then remarked to
his mate, with a contented chuckle: 'Looks
like tunes war mighty hard outside, BU1P
" 'You're shouting,' replied Bill
"But I want to again answer your question
about reform. Thepolico would be apt to
mislead you on this subject. While warden
I looked into the matter, and while I don't
recall tbe exact figure, the percentage of
convicts that was returned to the prison was
very small, certainly below 3 per cent I
meet men every day of my life who have
done time, come out, settled down among their
former acquaintances and lived honest lives.
I see, In the course of a year in St Louis,
hundreds of them, In all walks ot life, working at the trades, driving team and in higher
walks. The rule, however, Is for a man who
during his confinement has seen tho error of
his ways to go off to somo strange locality
and commence lifo again. Every town in the
country has its Jean Valjoon. I meet them
everywhere, and I travel extensively—men
who come up to me and say: 'That term I
served with you mado a man of me.' The
police officer's glib axiom, 'once a thief,
always a thief,' finds no echo in my heart It
is not my intention to discuss the whipping
feature in detail. Horrible as it Is, it ls sanctioned by law. It is for the legislature to
abolish it I only give my opinion, based
upon observation here and abroad, that better results, both to the men aud tho contractors, can be obtained without it, or any of the
hundred punishments. To tako this viow, I
must stand squarely on the platform that the
state's duty la not to punish convicts, but to
reform them."—St Louis Globe-Democrat
Monkeys Prefer tho North.
At Atlanta, a littlo, squatty Italian, carrying on his back a baud organ, on the top ot
which was perched a consumptive looking
monkey, was seen near tho Union depot
"How do you like the south)" ho was asked,
as he let down his organ and began cnresslng
the monkey. With a shrug of his shoulders
and an affectionate glance at the monkey, ho
said: "Me no Ilka do wodder. He make do

Advice to Invalids—If you wish ta amain

relief from pain and anguish, to calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate the circulating systems of the body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J, Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Stall), to which
he gave thc name of CHLORODYNE, and
which is admitted by the profession to lie 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
Diarrhoea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNE is thc only palliative in

Sin—We embrace Ihis opportunity of con*
gratulating you upon the wtde*spread reputation thii justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis .Irowne's f'hloroilyne, has earneil for
itself, nol only in Hindostan, but all over
the Fast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a lietter is im*
porteil into the country, ami we shall he
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-In-lian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to lhc
native bazaars, and judging from their salel
we fancy their sojurn there will he but '
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of thc extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrho1,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps, '
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a- general Sedative, that have oecarrcd
uniis t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrho-a, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We 1
have never used -.liy other fotni of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to thc proj
fession and the public, as wc arc ofthe
opllilon tnat the substitution of any other j
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON TIIE PART!

W. L. Jeffreys vs. W. Beveridge. This
was an action brought to recover the sum
of t-JO, being the balance claimed as due.
The plaintiff testified that \V. never-
idge has asked liim to HBSnme Ins duties
while he was absent tor the benefit of his
health. He said lie could iiutallbrdtopiiv
me at the rateof |2.50, perday but would
give me $70 which I accepted, 1 was
sworn in on Saturday, tlie L'lith ot January I retained charge ol the convict
guard till March l:llb, Mr. Bray paid me
IfttOas pavment for my aetwea during
February.' Beveridge also paid me *S
and afterwards offered me W.BQ as payment in full of the debt, which I declined
to accept. He refused to pay me any
more and said Constable A. Hamilton
ha.) drawn the Corporation pay. .
Cross-examined by W. Beveridge. ^ ou
did not tell me that all the money you
could guarantee me was $60 per month.
You did not suv that tlie man In charge
of tho chaingang would get me 110 per
month from the Corporation. I did nut
get it.   I sav the $10 is pari ol your pay.
Mr. Bray, Clerk ol the Court, said he
■wore Jeffrey in us special constable In
place of Beveridge, who directed him to
hand over his salary to Jeffrey.
W. Beveridge deposed that he requested Jeffrey lo take  his  place  during  his
leave of absence, I .old him be would
get mv salary of $00 per month. I impressed upon him thai he would not get
the $10 I received from the Corporation.
Jeffrey got my salary und 1 received the
$10 (rbni the Corporation,
I believe that Jeffrey worked about 46
days for me at $2 per day. I offered him
$2U rather than create a disturbance,
and afterwards paid $22 into court. 1
told him Hamilton had drawn the Corporation monev.
Cross-examined by E, M. Yarwood.
Jeffrey agreed to receive my government
salary, that is $6u. I received an account
from Jeffrey the day I tendered him the
$26.
W. Stewart, constable, said A. Hamilton was in charge of the chain-gang dining Beveridge's absence. Jeffrey was
assistant convict guard.
A. Hamilton said he was in charge of
the chaingang during Beveridge's
absence. I was to receive Ihe $10 from
the corporation, but have not yet. I
hear it was placed to my account, but do
not know.
His Lordship reserved judgment till lo-
day.

tne hrceny of $12 from one George Fisli-
burn, at Southfield, on the 15th ult.
M. Bray prosecuted for the Crown, the
prisoner was undefended,
Mr. Bray said the prisoner had previously held a had record, having been
discharghed from jail on April 7th, after
having served 8 months lor stealing a
bottle of liquor.
Witnesses were examined to prove
that the prisoner had been at Southfield
on the night in question, also that he had
changed a $10 bill at the Cranberry
Hotel.
Louis Rowan, of the Cranberry Hotel,
said he recognized the "gentleman," in
the dock.
This led to a small lecture from His
Lordship on the right of man to be called
a gentleman.
Prisoner said he was an Oddfellow,
and met some of the brethren, who gave
him money. A Mr, Nelson, of Manitoba,
and another man also gave him $10 between them.
Case remanded till 10 a.m, to-day to

\ Bow Asssong tlie eiydt.N.
A recent advice from Queen Charlotte
Islands relates a rather high old time
among the Hydus. It seems I hat some
chief wished to give a potlarh and accordingly invited his friends and relatives. * They, smelling plunder and
good gifts, came in great force. The
principal item iu tlie potlach was a keg of
white man's medicine, yclept whiskey.
The eventful evening arrived and Ibe
usual grotesque dances were indulged in,
I the guts distributed and then the domic
| louche of the evening was produced in Ihe
; shape of the keg. No questions us to
I right of possession were asked, but the
I flowing bowl passed freely and very soon
began to toll on our dusky cousins.
How the row began no one seems
to 'know, but very soon pandemonium reigned supreme in Unit hitherto
peaceful camp. The bucks first started
ou each other and their respective wives
chipped in just to make things lively.
Our informant says that hair How, skin
peeled oil' and heads were cracked ill
such a short space of time lhat he hardly
knew what going on. He put off in bis
canoe and waited just a short way oil'
shore to watch the ending of Ihe racket
which if they had been sober enough to
reach their firearms and cutlery must
have resulted in a wholesale massacre.
Luckily the Indians were too iniieli occupied hitting each other with billets of
wood anil other articles that eanie bandy,
to think of getting their weapons. Our
informant says that barring a few broken
limbs and several severe contusions
nothing very serious occurred,

Mr. Foreman, of Foreman & Campbell,
arrived yesterday on the steamer Dunsmuir from Vancouver bringing with him
seven new boats. The boats are principally outriggers, and no douht will prove
very useful in the races of the 24th of
May. We think from what we have seen
in the past few days lhal these boats will
not heallowed to remain idle on the linn's
hands. Nanaimo is hiking up sculling
strongly and probably in the near future
we shall see a boating club organized in
tiiis eity, which in time will produce several Hanlans, a couple of O'Connors inula

An English author foreshadows a serious   danger  to his  calling   should the
Amercian copyright hill become a  taw.
The bill provides that no book shall be
copyrighted which is not published in
America, and the result would he that
American hooks would be exported to
England.   "If twenty copies," says this
author, "of any given work are sold in
England, that market will lie looked to
which   takes   the   twenty copies.    The
great English publishing firms will have
, I their principal establishments in New
1       York and their branch houses in London.
The American literary journals will gain
I the precedence, and will acquire greater
I weiglitthun those in England; nnd, lastly,
i hooks will be written to suit the Ameri-
: can rather than the English taste."   The
: real issue, therefore, is "not whether or
i no few writers would continue to be rob-
! lied of their just dues, hut whether Lon-
| don or .New York shall in fill ure rule tlie
| English world of letters."    It would end,
in ibis writer's judgment, in the transfer
of the English literary centre from Lon-
; don lo New York.

has been lot to A. Summerhayes nnd A.
Henderson. The carpenter work bus
been given toT. II. Frost. The work of
excavation will begin next Monday. It
is gratifying to hear that our townsmen
have been awarded this work and it will
tend to discourage reports Unit everything that can possibly be given to outside parties is done so. We know very
well that such is not the ease, but that
certain pessimistic persons who fail to
obtain contracts they tender for, shirt
these reports. Tlie Methodists are to be
congratulated on their energy and enterprise in deciding to elect a new church
and equally so for Iheir despatch in setting to work. The contract calls for the
completion ol the  work  on or   before
August 15th.

Considerable discussion over the question of leprosy among the Chinese In this

The outlook for business is brightening
and everyone is wearing a more hopeful
look. The eoal trade is looking up and
an increased number of ships are on Iheir

Latin phrase, "with both feet."

It is reported, says (lie Standard, that
a bloodless duel took place at Beacon Hill
Thursday morning. The weapons were
pistols, but the seconds had brains enough
to load the deadly tubes with powder only.
The police are reported to have an inkling
of the  affair,  and arrests may be made.

Chinamen were employed yesterday to
unload the lumber seow at present in
Commercial Inlet. Tlie planks look
