.NOTICE.
London, May 4.—The Soudan drama
seems lo be entering on its fifth act, and
it is possible that within a few days news
may be received tbat the final catastrophe has taken place and Malidisni will be
a thing of the past. The wide empire
which the Mahdi built for himself out of
the elements of discontent and oppression
on one side and religious fanaticism with
its transcendental gleams of hope on the
Other, has crumbled away, and bis successor at present, Khalifa, sits at Omdurman with the south in insurrection behind him, the north languishing in
scarcity of food, which drives its inhabitants daily over the frontier. Regiments
of his, beaten armies, are returning
directly from every point to which he
has sent them. The circle of his enemies
drawing daily closer about him and to
complete the picture.a Khartoum in ruins
under his eyes. Tlie report, this week,
that Senoussi's Lieutenant had captured
Khartoum and that Khalifa had fled in
the direction of Bahr-el-Gazel caused
considerable uneasiness among the
friends of Emin Pasha and Henry M.
Stanley. In an interview with Seebehr
Pasha" he says lie lias positive information that Kubba Old, an agent
of his, three months ago withdrew ins
influence to the district west and south of
Bahr-El Gazelle, making Kitta his principal centre and getting the frontier on
the southern limits of Dnrfour. Seebehr
is of the opinion that he Is now friendly
to the Einin and certainly opposed to the
Mahdi, Seebbr believes him to have
now at his disposal a force of between
forty and sixty thousand men. Emin he
thinks is doing well, and believes that in
a few days a message directly from San-
ley will" be received by the northern
route which Seebbr declared to be, in
spite of difficulties, the most practicable.
Kiuz Pasha declares that Ihe Fcnouss
movement is in favor of order and civilization and well disposed towards the
Egyptian government,

Wll.l. DEMAND 1III.IIKK WAQEB.
Much uneasiness prevails iii Germany
in consequence of the anticipated
strikes on a huge scale and in various in-
dustrles. It is expected thai demands
for higher wages and reduced working
hours will shortly be made, and that
these will not be conceded without more
or h-ss conflict. Trade unions in the
English sense have nol yet gained a foothold iu Germany, but combinations
amongst working people are now being
rapidly established there. Employes in
iron niul steel manufacturing works and
cotton spinning mills have already formed
strong combinations und it is announced
these lines of business, owing to the
profitable state of their trade will concede any moderate claims rather than
run the risk of strikes, as it
is generally admitted that the working people are poorly paid and work
long hours, a compromise is hardly
possible, especially as the views of employes and employers are widely divergent. Already demands for higher wages
and shortening of the working day by
one hour have been put forwarded in
various places so widely apart that it
leaves little doubt that a general strike is

int many of the supporters of the I lov-
eininent begin to see difficulties In the
May of any siu-h heroic csurse. The split
between Conservatives and Unionists in
Birmingham bus not by any means been
mended by Chamberlain's explanations.
There are strong Unionists in the House
who now state that it was the beginning
of a general split which is having a tendency to go on steadily widening umler
the present regime, and they believe that
a fresh and hold departure will lie necessary before long to save the Cause of the
Union. The nature of of this departure
is beyond a doubt. It means that Ihe
"third party" would cease to exist, that
the great body of Unionists would join
the Conservatives, and thai the newly
formed partv would appeal to the country
with a broad and comprehensive nelienic
of Irish Policy conceding almost everything except Home Utile. It is unquestionably a fact that thero are Unionists
in tlie House who could not
reconcile themselves to fulling generally into line with the Conservative
Government, wlio yet see us clearly as
any Gludstoniau, that the scheme of the
three parties is repugnant to English
sentiment and cannot lust, and are prepared, therefore, to face the necessity of
standing outside till the general election.
It is perfectly safe to prophecy that whatever else may happen at tho dissolution
the country will have only two parties
before it.
INDUS  CORN   QUESTION.
On Wednesday next a conference will
he held at the India Olliee of representatives of various commercial chambers
and associations interested in the corn
I trade and leading shippers ai tho ports
of London, Liverpool)Glasgow and Cork,
: to consider measures to be taken tor
i diminishing the percentage ol impurities
in tlie Indian wheat exported to Great
! Britain, Of 7(Kl leading millers who were
communicated with on the subject by the
[ India Office, IMS state they are partially
I prevented from using Indian   wheats  in
 , [ consequence of  its impurities.    Large

papers 10 he presented to the conference
will be a selection of extracts from the

millers, including firms in   Liverpool,
Manchester and  other  northern towns.
SLANDERING   THE   KING'S   MAJESTY.
Several leading Gorman lawyers expressed an opinion lo-day that the I lermon
Government will fail to secure
a conviction of tho Editor of  tlie 'Yolks
Zeititng on a charge of slandering tho
King's Majesty. The evidence on which
the Editor is to lie prosecuted is the article of Mat-cli 9th, in which the Emperor
William 1. was pulled off his heroic pedestal and somewhat roughly handled.
It so happens that it is quite lawful to
say hard things of a dead king or emperor, abuse does not hurt bim. If it injures
anyone it is probably the person who
hns recourse to it. In any case it does
not constitute libel or slander on the
king. Tlie German prosecutors,however,
have discovered it means of bringing
the wicked editor to hook. Evidence is to Inoiight that William II.
is tlie spiritual successor of William I.
anil that he shares his grnnilfnther's
views and approves his measures. Thc
public prosecutor will therefore nsk that
the Editor be found guilty and sent to
prison. It is hardly credible that such a 1
travesty of justice should take place, but I
it is significant that intelligent observers
in Germany expect tlie lawyers to proceed in tlie way indicated. There is,
ndeed, a precedent  for the argument to
M
denie
London Standard, that ex-King Milan
had been mesmerized by Madame Chris*
lichs, and abdicated under mesmeric influence. The only part of the story that
is plausible is that Milan was very much
influenced by Madame Christicbs. But
this required no peculiar hypothesis
lo explain it. M. Kistichs further snid:
" In 1K8.-I Milan allowed himself to be led
into war against Bulgaria, It was a
wicked, aimless, useless war, nnd it was
fought by the Servians as such wars are
generally fought. Milan wus never at
the right place and never in time. When
after the failure of bis first attempt to
rush the frontier, it became evident that
the Servian army must retire to escape
disaster, Milan "was the lirst to retire.
From that moment his lifo ha«! not lieen
worth living. His wife despised him,
not without reason, and was imprudent
enough to let tho whole world, including
the King himself, know what her sentiments were. A weak character and u
ploasuro seeker, Milan felt himself unequal to work the kingship, and there is
nothing remarkable in his having given
it up.

PACIFIC   COAST   NEWS.
Rowing, I notice, in my walks around
town is receiving fresh devotes each day.
The two boothousea in Commercial Inlet
are well patronized, tlie owners are courteous and obliging, the IhkiIs are well
built, neat and convenient, and each afternoon the harbor is dotted wilh craft
of all description from outriggers to sailing lioats. How gingerly some of our
would-be rowing athletes handle the oars
of the outriggers, how steadily Ihey pull,
evidently not knowing what moment
they may in their awkwardness and inexperience, capsize the frail craft, and
receive a ducking. I noticed a stout mnn
and a slender one each iu one of these
shells yesterday afternoon. The stout
mnn handled his ours very carefully, ami
I mentally concluded that lie would he
more at home on teeeajirina than on the
vasty deep. It is a pleasant and healthy
exercise, however, and will develop more
blisters on tender hands than nny other
tbul I know of.
From tlie numbers of that species ol
mankind known in our vocabulary as the
"drummer" who have been in Nanaimo
the past week. I should say that either
business must lie good among our merchants, or that there were a lot of disappointed "knights of tlie grip," wandering
aimlessly about. Speaking of "drummers" I want to say that there are many
kinds of that article. First there is tlie
spruce, chipper young fellow, wlio uses
his cull'for a collar and who wears a .12
diamond in his immaculate shirt front,
and who thinks that he has
only to approach the merchant,
show his samples and, lo, tlie order is obtained. This kind sometimes gets "left,"
but as the years go by and lie attains
some worldly experience, lie become-
somewhat subdued, the angular portions
of his anatomy become rounded, and he
takes things more coolly.
ALL  ABOUT  A   WOMAN.
Auburn,Cal., May 4.—About midnight
last night an ex-convict named Brown
was Bhot and fatally wounded by William Clarke, a hard character. The shooting took place outside of a dance hall
and resulted from a quarrel over a woman.
A   DOUBLE   ELOPEMENT.
Oakland, Cala., May 4.—There wus a
double elopement from here on Wednesday. Harry J. .Maxwell, a grocery clerk,
and Grace Atbein. Harry W. Pulcifer
and Florence Nightingale left for Martinez that day and tlie same evening
were married there. The two girls were
formerly type writers iu the oftlce where
Pulciticer was clerk. Both boys are barely
of age and the young Indies are ls nnd .'il
respectively.

THE  BRAZILIAN PARLIAMENT.
Then there is the fat drummer, with a
fund of anecdotes, always on hand—a
fresli one for each customer, and I have
noticed that this kind sometimes can get
blood out of a turnip—to wit, succeed
where every other man would fail in getting an order. There is the lean cadaverous drummer who looks when he enters
a business house, as though he would
there and then sbutile off this mortal
coil. He lias a hungry look which sometimes begets sympathy and perhaps helps
him iu his business. Space wiil not allow me to dwell at length upon other
kinds that arc met with. Some are fresh,
and some are dry, some talk too much
with their mouths, anil some talk only
when it is necessary, some are grave and
some are gay, some arc witty, some are
not; hut taken altogether they are a jolly
set of felloes, who jog along together,
half the time on foot and the other ball
walking. The "drummer," as we know
him, is a product of the last quarter of a

Disposal of Stock.—The last few days
have witnessed the purchasing ofa large
amount of dry goods, millinery and mens
furnishings irom the cost price sale at
Arthur Bullock's. We always contend
that in small towns it is impossible to
humbug tlie 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 lx> seen
at Bullock's al all hours of the day. So
don't fail to avoid yoursels of theoppor
.unity,

F.ilTII    TN   ONE'S
COUNTRY.
It has often been charged against Canadians—and when we say Canadians, it
will include British Columbians as well-
that they do nol exhibit the same push,
pluck and enterprise as do their cousins
across the border.   Nunilierless aro the
proofs quoled to prove tlie truth of their
assertions. Thedevelo] lit and growth
of Stales, the rise and progress ol cities,
the vast improvements ill arts and manufactories, theexcelli e ot the mechanical skill and numerous other examples
ure pointed to us evidencing the fad thai
that people are far superior to us in as
many different ways. Tin- comparison
however, is scarcely n fair one. It must
be borne in mind thai the United Stales
is a much older nation limn Canada, ll
bad reached full-fledged manhood, while,
this country was still in its infancy. Tbe
Eastern Stales, were Strong and vigorous
at the time of the Revolution, while Eastern Canada wasasyel a wilderness. They
have prosperedO wonderful indeed, lias
been the advancement and the men and
their descendants, whose efforts made
the Eastern States, bring forth and bud.
have been largely Instrumental in opening np the republic across the wild wastes
to the Rockies und on to the Pacific
Coast. These same men were indomitable, persevering nnd knowing no such
word as fail, and having a firm failh ill
the future of their country, they made it
what it is, Why then is it, that we are
taunted with being slow and sleepy.
Are we not of the same race? We are
told by our relatives from across
the border, thai we have
line country, our cities are beautiful; our
resources are grand, but Ihen they invariably end with the same old phrase,
Which we have beard tor years, that
Canadians are not enterprising; that
they are too Conservative; thut there is
not enough ofthe speculative instinct inherent in them j (hat they are loo can
tions and have not been long enough removed from John Bull to forget their
native stolidity—in short, before investing one dollar we wanl to see two in
sight. There may be some truth in these
statements, and, perhaps, it would be
well enough to examine them. II will
be conceded by all who have visited
cities of the United States—we need only
go across the Sound—that thero is a life,
a vim, and an enterprise which in lacking
in cities in our own province. There is
no use denying the fuel, und we do not
have far to go to find the reason, ll is
obvious. There men invest their money
in Iheir own towns; they inaugurate
needed improvements; tbe.y place their
cities in a position whero they can invite
and command trade, and if they have
not natural facilities sufficient to control
the trade after securing it, thev mnke
tliein ns the trade increases, 11 is in Ibis
way that cities and towns rise from small
beginnings and eventually become marts
of commerce and hives of industry. It is
by action, liy getting awakened, tearing
awny the accumulatud moss and cobwebs
of years, and getting|a "move on," and
determining to get to the front, if the
citizens of a town sit down and (old Iheir
hands, content to crawl along at a snail's
puce ;if thev say to themselves audio
one another, "Oh, this town
will never amount to much,''
it is pretty safe to say that il never will
amount to much. Even if tben* is a portion of the people who are imbued With
faith in the city nnv efforts they may
mnke arc necessarily handicapped by
sueli pessimists. These are plain unvarnished fads. Then, there is another
matter. When a city is non-progressive,
and of course, without the enterprise it
should have, the money made through
business, and the capital accumulated hy
the operations of any business is, too
often, taken from the town and invested
in those places, which are growing rapidly and whose future, bids fair to mnke
them great, ll is of course every man's
privileilge to invest the means at bis
command where und bow he chooses, but
it does strike us as unfortunate to say
the least, that such a thing should have
to be done. It is as plain as can be that
investing money outside of tho town
where it is made is of precious little use
to that, burg. Neither will men, like
these, try to build up a town ; Ihey hnve
no interest in it and it affords them only
a temporary anchorage ground, in which
to gather together the shekels and enjoy
the fruits of their labor elsewhere. They
are not wholly to blame either. We believe in push in running the affairs of a
town, in aggressiveness, In making ourselves heard and felt. Make the town
such that people will feel disposed to
stay in it; make their homes in it, nnd
invest their money in it. Sink all serf*
ishncBS, all petty jealousies and bickerings; unite to make the town, work with
a wili, support everything that is for, nol
only present but future benefit, and don't
do it ungrudgingly, but heartily and fearlessly and the result will he assured. Nanaimo has a future and the sooner nil of
her citizens realize it, the sooner will begin tlie halcyon days of prosperity, and
the winter of our discontent will vanish.
long been made to discredit emigration
among the Crofter population oi the
Highlands, it is being received with much
greater favor, as i ■ sufficiently proved by
the scene witnessed al Stomoway recently, when 2,000 persons embarked lor
Canada. Tbe emigrants who have already gone oul have prospered in a
marked degree, and this fact will have
greater effect in influencing Iheir Friends
than all the counsel of political agitators.
That the Crofters are regarded as a mosl
desirable class for settlement in the
Northwest is proved liy the strong efforts
that ni-- being made to make terms with
tbem. sir JoiinLister Kaye explained
to some members of tho Houso of Commons yesterday one of thc most elaborate
schemes yet devised for supplementing
Government assistance, und seem ing thc
settlement ol tlie Crofters on farms already cultivated and stocked. Somo years
ago the Canadian Pacific Railway Com-
panj established ten experimi nlal farms
at intervals aloic Hie line; those have
now been acquired aud developed hj an
independent   compimy, which  proposes
on certain tonus highly renin alive to
itself to establish ea.-b Crofter family on
a lario of :;l;ii acres. For this farm, as a
going concern, each family wonld have
to reimburse llio company £440, spread
ovor a period ol 82 years. This scheme
isnodoubt an attractive one, though it
seems lo be based on rather aii ambitious scale for n class destitute of capital.
One of Ihe duties of tin- new C mission
which il is proposed to appoint will no
doubt be to inquire into tlie expediency
of entering into anv ol the tempting proposals now being dangled before the
crofters, and whether they do nol involve
obligations which will prove loo onerous
for fulfilment. II is in reference to the ]	
eise circumstances of tin- local ions in the
North West that inquiry is most necessary. There exists already in the reports
ot former Commissions mon- than sufficient evidence regarding tie- condition of
the crofters and tbe necessity for emigration, and the appointment of another, if
il is only to proceed on beaten paths, has
un unpleasant look of shelving the
question."

LOUISIANA   SALT   MINES.
A Helt of Sallferou* Depoalt—Pure Kocl
Salt—Pepper Fields.
One of the visitors to the mines explained
ti' Mr. Ely that there was a belt of saliferout
du|>osit in Louisiana extending from Bosslei
und Bienville parishes, above Red river, ts
the Gulf. The largest of these deposits ap
pean to be the beds of ancient exhausted
lakes. Salt springs were known to exist on
Petite Aiise island from tbe earliest date, bul
the works were abandoned until the blockade
during tho war raised tbe price of salt so
high in tho southern states that Major Averj
reopened them for the use of tho Confederacy. It was at this time that he came unex
pectodly upon the enormous stratum of pure
rook salt, which underlies the soil. Like the
island of Ormuz, in the Persian gulf, Petit*
Anno is apparently only a hugo rock of salt.
Thu mines have now been in operation
about twenty years. The salt is excavated in
large masses by blasting with dynamite. It
is so pure that it is prepared for the market,
not by melting and refining, as in the English mines, but simply by grinding into the
requisite grudes of fineness. The nativecrys
tuls detached by blasting are as clear and
translueent as glass. Mr. Ely went down into
the mine, and wandered through its far retreating corridors, whose pillars and lofty
arches shone with a soft silvery radiance.
When tbe lights of tho torches struck into the
darkness overhead, thc domes flashed baeb
sueh splendors of color that it seemed U
Mr. Ely us if he hod entered one of the cave*
underground where the Trolls havo stored
all tho jewels of the world.
"This is ull a surprise tome," said one ol
the visitors—u stout professor from some college In Indiana—as ho stepped from the elevator into the uppt^ir. "I actually did not
know there wus a inino of salt in the United
States."
"And yet," said their guide, quickly, "you
have no doubt used our salt on your table for
years. Wo ship it to overy largo town in the
north and west."
This little island of Petite Anso furnisher
popper as well as salt to our tables. TobaBco,
or tho distilled cayenne, dear to tho hearts of
gourmands and chofs, is manufactured hen
out of a wild pepper peculiar to Louisiana.
Two or three fields produce enough of tin
cultivated pods to send their essence to all
parts of this country aud to Europe. It ia
one of the numberless minor industries which
have sprung into life throughout the south
since tho war, and which hint at tho strength
and vitality of that long sterile soil.—Rebecca Harding Davis iu Harper's Magazine.
TO LONDON BY RAIL.      A CHINESE RESTAURANT.
AN ALL  ROUND THE WORLD ROUTE
WHICH IS PRACTICABLE.
A Mass of Ambergris.
The fact that a schooner, which had arrived at Gloucester, had picked up off Cape
Sablo a mass of ambergris, weighing 125
pounds, has started inquiry as to the nature
and market value of the substance. Its use
lu Europe and tho United Spates is entirely
confined to perfumery, although it formerly
occupied no inconsiderable place in medicine,
In tho east it is used in pharmacy and as a
flavor lug material In cookery. Its value is
from $18 to $25 por ounce, according to
quality. It is a solid, fatty, inflammable
substance, of dull gray or blackish color, tho
shades being variegated like marble, and
possessing a peculiar sweet, earthy odor.
This substance is formed hi the intestines
of tho spermaceti whale, being morbidly secreted, and floats on tho water. Vessels pick
it up In tho Atlantic ocean, ou the coasts of
Bratil and Madagascar, on tho coast of
Africa, East Indies, China, Japan, the Bahama Islands and sometimes on tho North
American coast. Tho largest lump over
heretofore found weighed 162 pounds. The
whales in which it has been discovered wero
cither dead or much wasted, and evidently In
a sickly condition. But it Is belioved that
ambergris, from the position iu which it exists and its chemical constitution, is a biliary
concretion analagous to what is found in
other mammals.—Boston Transcript.
Superstition on the Stage.
"There Is as much superstition among actors as thero is among sailors," remarked a
member of the profession to a reporter,
"Thoy ore forever on the lookout for signs,
and these are construed into all kinds of
meanings. Tho placing of a chair on the
stage in a peculiar position will be taken to
mean something in connection with their success, while the action of a single individual in
the audience will have a decided effect upou
their future course.
"It is while rehearsing a now play that the
greatest amount of superstition ls indulged
In with actors and managers.
"One of tho most noticeable is tho effect of
the lines upon tho members of tho company.
If a laugh or even a smile is provoked by the
witticism of the author it is regarded as a
bad omen for the success of thepvoe. If a
pathetic passage causes a remar. regarding
its beauty, the conclusion is at onco reached
that the play will no* be a 'go,' and when the
effect is in the opposite direction their spirits
rise and the belief is entertained that all will
I m well with the play. Thero are probably
100 other signs upon which actors hang the
fate of themselves or tho play to bo produced."—Philadelphia Bulletin.
Causes or Premature Death,
Most of those who die between 25 and 60,
unless they die by accident, die by somo indiscretion. It is the over indulgence of appetite, or the neglect of food when needed, or
the overstrain of business, or exposure to
changes of temperature without corresponding change of clothing. Most people of
these ages are conscious of the error after it
has been made, or others are conscious of it
for them. Without undue captiousness wo
can note changed conditions, aud adapt ourselves thereto. Multitudes die prematurely
by reason of an indiscretion which might
havo been easily avoided. It is intelligent
caution that saves sickness, and this caution
ought to be lu possessivfr and exercise before
middle life. It Is so much easier to prevent
serious sickness than it is to secure recovery
from it. Henoo it is that so many that aro
deficient in vigor in early life outlive the
vigorous and the careless. Necessity compels them to study their changing conditions
of health, and bo teaches them the benefits of
ndupti veness to conditions and circumstances.

Mot a Good Memory.
For some reason, I don't know why, people
expect to hear sensational testimony whenever I'm put on the stand in a political case.
But thoy don't hear it for a very good reason: I am so peculiarly constituted that in a
political campaign t never remember a transaction in which I am concerned for twenty-
four hours afterward. I never write letters,
I always burn those I receive, and I don't
make notes in a memorandum book or diary.

Fourteen Thousand Miles of Track, One-
half of Which ts Already iJild— The Russian Government Already Helping.
Could  Distance Jules   Verne's  Travelers.
It is quite probable that somo of thoso who
read this page will mako an all rail journey
from New York to London, or from London
to New York I A recent writer has been
carefully thinking out the whole scheme. How-
can this over bo when 3,000 miles of Atlantic
ocean separate tho two places? ho asks.
England   lies  to  the east of tho Unttod j
States, but to reach it by railway tho traveler  will start   westward,   and, riding day
after day and   night after night,  until he j
reaches the opposite side of  the globe, where ;
west and east meet and separate, and then
keeping on still westward, ho will arrive at
London, having well nigh traversed round j
tho world.
This Is no ldlo fnncy.    Tbe scheme involves
DO ocean ferrying, no stupendous and Im- |
practicable bridge building.    Prom tbe east-
era shore of America to tho western border j
or England thoro stretches continuous dry i
land, with tho exception of tho narrow and
comparatively shallow   straits of   Behring, :
botween Amorlca and  Asia, that aro a small ;
obstaclo; tho narrow English channel, only j
twenty milos across, and tho rivers which
science already knows how to span.
The English end of tlio projected lino, how  i
ever, is of comparatively small importance.
The real problem lies in spanning tbe tre- |
mendous distance that lies botween tho northwestern boundary of tho United States and
tho eastern frontier of Europe.
THE rnOFOSED  ROUTE.
From Now York to a littlo beyond the
northwestern boundary of tho United States
continuous rail communication ls already
opon by way of the Canadian Pacific railway,
which will soon bo supplemented by tho completion of a connection botween the Northern
Paclfio and the British American line.
Europe, from tho Atlantic ocean to the
Ural mountains, which separate it from Asia,
Is now crossed by the locomotive, its eastern
border being reached by two great Russian
railways, one terminating at Orenburg and
the other at Ekaterinburg, which last lies
nearly duo east from Moscow and southeast
from St Petersburg. Tho vast Russian empire in Asia, stretching from the Ural mountains to the North Pacific, and far up almost
to tho Arctic circle at Behring straits, a
distauco of thousands of miles, has not as
yet ono solitary line of railway. It is across
this prodigious stretch of country, much of it
well peopled, but much, also, an unknown
wilderness, locked a largo part of tho year in
tho embrace of tho Arctic winter, that tho
trans-Aslatio lino must penetrate.
But a great step in this direction has already
been taken. Tho Russian government feels
the necessity of rnilway communication
across its Asiatic empire, and tho czar has
sanctioned ,u project for tho gradual construe
tion of a railway from tho Urnl mountains
to the waters of tho Pacific at Vladivostock,
tho extreme southeastern point of tho Rus
sian empire, lying about latitude 42, directly
opposite the northern, most of tho chief
Islands in Japan. When that great work is
accomplished, central Asia will bo brought
into much nearer connection with America
than now, as Vladivostock lies almost due
west from Portland, Ore,, and tho distauco
between the two continents is much loss than
It is farther south.
But this will not do for our all rail route,
which must bo mado by a lino branching off
from tho great Russian Paclfio railway at
somo point perhaps a thousand miles west of
Vladivostock, and running northeasterly
through Siberia to Bchriupc straits.
The crossing of tho Behring straits is declared by somo experienced travelers to bo
entirely practicable. In tho narrowest place
they nro said to bo only ten miles wide, and
whilo for a part of tho year boats can easily
cross, it li asserted that tho straits are dotted
with islands, by means of which, and intervening bridges, a continuous passage could
be effected.
Alaska does not, it must bo admitted, offer
a very encouraging field for railway building, so far as either climate, topographical
features or product ions aro concerned, but
it interposes no obstacles which money and
skill could not overcome.
THE DISTANCES.
The distances over which tho railway wonld
have to bo built to carry out this great scheme
are, in round numbers, about as follows:
Miles.
United States boundary to Behring straits... 2,000
Ifehrtng straits to junction  with Russian
factflo railway  B.OOO
Junction to European lino at Ekaterinburg. 8,500
Total yet to bo constructed  7,600
This looks liko a tremendous length of line
to build, and yet about an equal amount of
railway mileago was probably built in tho
year 1888 in tho United States alone, and in
one recent year almost doublo that mileage
was constructed.
Some of the distances by our great railway
and its connections would be about as foi'
lows:
Miles.
New York to Tort Moody (British America). 8,500
Port Moody to Behring straits 2,000
Behring straits to Ural mountains  5,500
Ural mountains to London      8,000
Total New York to London, all rail 14,000
This would bo a pretty long rail journey,
but it would be short compared with many
ocean voyages that aro now made; in fact, it
would be only about threo and a half times
aa long as tho jouruoy from New York to
San Diego, which is undertaken every day.
Allowing the moderate average of .twenty-
five miles an hour, the trip from Now York
to London would tako about twenty-threo
days. Then the tourist might add a soven
days' sail from Liverpool to Now York, and
thus accomplish a trip around tho world in
thirty days, which would boat Jules Verne's
travelers out of sight.—Now York Journal.
The Color Cure.
Colors havo considerable Influenco on tbe
the physical nature both of plants and animals. Sundry diseases grow better or worse
according to the color of tho apartments occupied by the patients. Violet, among others,
Is said to have a very beneficial effect on tho
health. Recent experiments made by a Swiss
doctor have shown that lunatics may be
treated by colors. Tho doctor placed ono of
hts patients who was suffering from melancholia and refused to ent in a well lighted
room papered with red; in threo hours the
man was quite lively and ate with avidity.
Another time ho locked a raving maniac in a
blue chamber, who within a fow hours became quite calm after all other 'methods had
failed.—New York Telegram.

In Mulberry street, near Canal, amid the
noise, bustle and confusion of the busy merchants of the "Bend," there is a quiet and unpretentious dining room. It is presided over
ut all hours of the day and night by Wah
Sing Foo, und the business is sold to be a
thriving one. Pictures of turtles, pigs,
sharks and several kinds of hobgoblins are
pasted on the windows and their virtues, as
articles of diet, are set forth in choice spider
scratches upon places of brown paper. The
most attractive sign, however, reads as follows: "A good diner 8 cents."
This was sufficient to luro a reporter into
the place recently. There were nouo of the
Oriental luxuries iu sight. On the walls were
a few pictures of flowers, highly colored, and
a certificate that Mr. Foo, or some of his
friends, bad attended a .Sunday school. The
tables were of pine and partially covered by
u ragged material that looked like u cross between a dishcloth nnd u mop. Mr. Foo was
engaged in leveling tho sole of his shoe with
a natcliet when the reporter entered, and,
after glancing up quickly, went ou with his
work. The reporter dropped carelessly upon
a slool and waited. How long the wait would
have lasted will never In* known. There was
a sudden interruption. A pungent odor stelo
in from the buck yard, where something was
being cooled. It was too powerful for any
nose save a highly cultivated one. The reporter tried to keep it back, but out it came
—a double barreled sneoze—thut set everything to jingling.
It struck Mr. Foo amidship. The hatchet
iell on his foot and the shoe dropi>ed into
Roraethfng which looked liken keg of molasses. There wus blood in his eye and there
might have been a tragedy, had not the
innocent cause of nil the commotion put on
u hungry look and touched his sunken abdomen with his finger.
THE DBST IX  THE II0UHE.
Mr. Foo smiled so that no one could toll
whether ho was weeping, wailing or gnashing
his teeth as he said;
"Wing Foo ah alle go to kiting see bah."
"All right, Mr. Foo. I'll forgive you. Now
just set up the I-est in tho house, up to tho
sight cent limit, and all will be well."
Mr. Foo jumped away with the air of a
man who did not understand a word that had
been spoken. Ho kept out of sight for twenty
minutes and then api>eared with a large bowl
of something steaming hot, which he set on
the table aud then took a seat close by. He
began to whistle a peculiar call and the yellowish soup moved restlessly In the bowl. A
spoon came with the stuff. It required some
courage to take n mouthful, and it would
take a team of horses and a derrick to get one
up to the rack for a second trial. A mixture
of lard, mustard, salt and bilge water may
tempt a lagging appetite, but it is just a littlo surprising to the stomach of a man not
thoroughly used to tho customs of tho Flowery Kingdom. Mr. Foo took tho mysterious
compound away and came back in a little
while with a large platter and a couple of
small dishes. There wero two slices of some
brown material on the platter. Mr. Foo admitted that it was "pe-sick-re-aut-i." There
Is no doubt that it was tho genuine goods. It
tasted so. One of tbe slices was filled with
-small fish bones, and the other was a dainty
morsel which might have been taken, with a
little imagination, to bo a bit of fried mummy. Thero wero also some beans, cabbage
and rice. Mr. Foo evidently runs his place
an tho touch not and taste not plan. Well-
it keeps one from being poisoned. A nibble
here and there demonstrated tbat an ash can
would be a wife place for Mr. Foo's "layout,"
It mado it easy to understand why a young
Chinnnmn wears wrinkles and appears like
an old man while yet iu his teens.
A SMALL POT OF TEA.
Mr. Foo removed the dishes. Ho wanted to
bring some moro of tho menu, but the reporter indicated that he would prefer a drink
of some kind. After a long delay Mr. Foo
appeared with u tray bearing a small pot of
tea ami a cup that resembled a toy, The tea
was a revelation. It was aromatic and the
flavor delicious, and if thero hud not been a
small family of Croton bugs found in the teapot, after the tea had been swallowed, it
would have been thoroughly enjoyable. This
ended tho dinner.
"Well, Mr. Foo, how much do I owe you?"
thc reporter asked, simply as a matter of
form.
The remark brought back Mr. Foo's cheerfulness, and ho came near uncovering his
spine with longitudinal extension of his smile.
He showed for the first time that his English
bad not been entirely neglected. After a few
marks with a brush, through the wreath of
smiles came tlio words soft and low:
"Sixta-nine-a cen,"
"Sixty-nine cents! Go te, Mr. Foo. You are
crazy! Why your sign out there says that
you give a good dinner for eight cents. What
do you mean by this extortion?"
"Ah! fixcus-a-me. Eight cen for poor Chinaman. Melicau man richee, no eatee like
Chinaman. Ho eatee blenty soup, beef and
good tings. Mlichee eatee, muehee pay. Belly
good. Sixty-nin-a cen cheapee. Chinaman
loseo money all time.   Belly poor."
Tho bill was paid, and the visitor came
away with the experience and conviction that
Mr. Foo had mistaken his calling. He ought
to double up with Hungry Joe and do the
"hand shaking" act.—New York Tribune.

Many tt middle aged man who is in tin*
habit of going to bed after eating a hearty
meal is puzzled whon he finds himself waking
up in the small hours of the morning, duy
after day, antl uuablo to get to sleep again.
He knows thut this wakefulness is unnatural,
but it never occurs to him that it is duu to
his stomach. It took me several years, during which I lost months of sleep, to Hint this
out, but now I know it. If tho victim of insomnia Whom I havo described will rise from
his It'll when ho wakes and drink a pint of
water hv will go to sleep again immediately,
ami will not wake again until his ordinary
hour—MnJ. 15. 8. Foster in (Hobo-Democrat.

Notice .it Itloetllllf.
The Nanainio Hovers bold a  meeting
last night, but owing to an insufficiency
with the larceny of $12 from one Georgi
Fishburn.
Mcintosh Beveridge was called by the
prisoner and asked to explain to the
Judge, that it was customary among members oi the Oddfellows Lodge to assist 107atte"Sdanctj thei mooting"was adjourned
each other in a pecuniary way. Thought
the prisoner met bim on Commercial
street late one Saturday nis-dit and demanded assistance in tbe mime ofthe
Brotherhood. Gave him what change 1
bad in my pocket, only ode. Know no
more. I made a remark at the time of
giving prisoner money thai prisoner may
remember. The prisoner did nol remember it. Ditl not remember another
man (jiving money the same night either.
T. O'Connell, called, said lie bad called
at tbe various hotels in lown and could
find no one answering to the description
of Mr. Nelson given by the prisoner. I
saw tlie prisoner tlio same evening, lie
was discharged from jail and again on
Monday. He was drunk lying under
tbe Bastion street bridge, I got liim up
and put bim in the wood shed at the Old
Flag Inn.    Did not want to lock bim up.
By tho Judge—-What have you to say
to tho statement of the lasl witness who
said you were lying around drunk at the
time you saitl you went to Wellington to
see the Oddfellows' Lodge there'.'
I am deeply sorry for getting tbe worse
for drink and also "for the manner 1 have
acted.
Judge—I should think yon were. I :i 111
acting now as the jury, and I must say
I think you bear a very bad record. You
have been treated with great kindness
by tbe people of this town, and no doubl
you would have received help and work.
Yoti received the hospitality ot those
young miners and how have yon repaid
it? You treated them wilh base ingratitude, and not only did them grievous
wrong, hut also wronged those who may
te in real distress hereafter and seek
assistance at Ihe hands of those men.
They may well sav oh, no! Look al thai
rascal Jackson. We treated liim well
and be robbed as. You have been given
a lair impartial heating, antl the sentence
ol tbe Court is lhat you be imprisoned
for the space oi 2 years. I have the right
to sentence you to 7 years, hut boinen
young man I wiil give you a chance to
reform. You can shorten your term considerably by good conduct, anil may in
tbat case receive $20 and a suit of clothes
to start tbe world afresh when leaving.
Above all tilings, refrain from the use ni
strong liquors, The prisoner wept when
being led out.

Through the courtesy of Sheriff Drake
a C'oukikk representative was allowed to
visit tbe various departments of tho jail
yesterday and ho was agreeably surprised
to notice the extreme cleanliness that
prevailed throughout that establishment.
He was there just at closing up time for
the night and was a witness of the care
with which all the prisoners are examined even to tlieir bedding, before being
barred up till next morning. The prisoners are for the most part very cheerful,
and carried on a continuous run of band-
Inage amongst themselves. One in double
irons went so far as lo dance 11 jig in the
court yard and supplied his own music.
Too great, praise cannot be given to the
officials lor the manner in which they
