FARNII.I. A DURESS ICS AN IHISII OKPUTATION.
London May 23.—A deputation from
the Irish Municipal Councils waited on
Parnell this evening.and presented him
with an address congratulating bim on
being relieved of the calumnies with
which he had been charged. The address declared that the special commission had already proved him innocent of
the charges. Parnell thanked the deputation for the address, and advised the
Councils to continue to use their privileges, not for the purpose of disintegration of the Empire, nor for upsetting the
authority of the Queen; but for helping
Ireland to obtain a realization of her legitimate aspirations. He said he never
doubted the ultimate disproof of thc
forged letters. He would rather have
gone to bis grave with the1 stigma of
the letters upon him than have
submitted Ireland to the humiliation
oi the ordeal which it was proposed to
place upon her, as an accompaniment
to tbe enquiry into their authenticity.
"Right," said Mr. Parnell, "has been
transgressed under a pretext of enquiry
into crime. Political issues have been
laid before men Incompetent to render a
fair decision." Mr. Parnell said he had
never contemplated the failure of Parliamentary action for Ireland's relief. "If
I was convinced of its futility," said lie,
"I and my colleagues would not remain
in the House of Commons a day."
rt ETHER KVrDKNCS   ON   PARNELL  COMMISSION.
London, May 29.—Mr. Gladstone was
present to-day at the session of the Parnell Commission. The cross-examination of Wm. O'Brien wns continued. The
witness said thut United Ireland had advocated nothing but peaceful means in
Ireland's struggle against landlordism.
Mr. O'Brien admitted writing and printing in his paper, that Queen Victoria
was only known to Ireland by her scarcely decently disguised hatred of Ireland,
and by her inordinate salary. And also
that Earl Spencer would be thc last
strong Englishman who would attempt
to rule Ireland hy means of barbarism,
pelil perjury, butchery, and the use of
the rope. He also admitted writing that the Chairman of the Committee on thc occasion of the reception to H. R. H. the Prince of Wales,
when the later visited Ireland some years
ago, would be hunted from public life.
atr. O'Brien here excitedlv exclaimed :—
"He has been driven from public life,
and rather than allow Englishmen to be
deceived by a show of shaui loyalty, I
resolved to tall them the truth.   I never
ts^otn^r^^j^
continued the witness, "it is clear that
England will not satisfy Ireland's aspirations, and if there is any rational chance
of suceees, an attempt would be made
on tbe part of the Irish to rebel." "The
London papers," the witness declared
were more responsible for the use of
dynamite than the efforts of Messrs.
Finnerty snd Patrick Ford. But for the
views the London journals had expressed
it would have been impossible to collect
110,000 in America for dynamite.   The
the witness'
they were written, but he did not consider them justifiable in the present state
of affairs.
MUSTOCaATIC  Tl'RF  SCANDAL.
London, May 23.—Lord Durham and
Sir George Chetwynd, who were involved
tn certain turf scandals last year, on account of which the latter brought a libal

Editor Courier:—Many thanks for
your editorial on "Gambling," which—
but aB desperate diseases require desperate remedies—it may tie necessary in
order to effect the object in view, to use
lioth strong language and severe meos-
ures, I quite agree with you that the
people themselves must take the matter
'into their own hands, if it is to lie done
at all. Some little time ago, some of the
City Council collected nil the police force
at their disposal, with tbe intention of
raiding the gambling houses, but there
was a "Judas" In their number, nnd when
the officers reached what was to he
the scene of their operations tbey found
nothing but empty rooms, and bare
tablet. Wc cannot shut our eyes to the
fact that our present Council is either incompetent, negligent or worse. Their
bye-laws are only a sham, they cannot
prosecute the proprietors of a Wash-house
for making a nuisance on the public
strcot. They cannot prevent a builder
from 'blocking up a street, though it endangers the lives ot the publle. While
gambling houses, and bousesof prostitution are, allowed to carry on their
nefarious! trade without let or hindrance.
I 'see several notices of application for
more licanses. Now, I believe if gambling
were stopped, a good many of those
houses at presentjicensed. would have
to shut/ftp.
WhoirVer loses at the gambling
table, tbe landlord always wins. It is
to hiava surer source of income than the
miserable compound be sells for liquor.
I believe some of our Aldermen are
honest in their endeavors to legislate for
the general good, while others can see
nothing beyond their own private interests. Let us mark these /ail, and next
year elect them to stay at home.

LITMABT HOTBa.
Mr. H'yLabouchere writing toa friend
says i—l an late calling your attention to
a boo* which will probably interest and
entertain youaa much as it did ine,"Love
Letters of Famous' Men and Women"
(?). You will aay, what I niyeelf thoagbt
upon opening it, tbat letters 4rooi Bed
lam would probably be as rational reading, since amare el suture eft iio c'oiiee-

by tbe amount of wit tuit wtaddan contained in these Inn inbjnw; and still
move, perfaapa te lb, Ift^k*Un. by the
letters upon the characters of some of
their writers. Usually love is'a gnat
leveller of intellect and character as
death is of rank and estate; tet most of
the "Love Letters" Mr. Merydew has
here iudiously selected, give yob a wonderfully distinct idea of tliair 'writers.
What, for instance, could.be aaore characteristic than this passage Irom Swift's
prosaic proposal of man inge to Miss
Jane Waryng (Varina)"? :—
These are the questional have always
resolved to propose to her with whom I
meant to pais my life; and.whenever
you can hear.'.!. answer them in the
affirmative, I "ball be' blessed te have
you in my nrfns, without regarding
whether voter pc-scn isbraatirul, or your
fortune large. «. IcinJiucas is the. first,
and cojn|K'tencr in the other is all I look
for.
Do you remember Dr.'llalv'e justification in " The Sorcewr," of Sir Marmu-
duke Pointdextre'a man iagtj to the old
pe.w-opcner:—
Norah is very clean; lajaufV will fade
and perish, but persona' cfcunliness is
practically undyiug,1' ir Kuan he renew ed

Certainly Swift's love-letters to Varina
do not answer to Roussea'i's iTermltion of
such effusions:— i
To write a geti lovt-1. tor are must
begin without knowing what we mean to
say, and finish without knowing what we

Tha, Australian miner mimed Henry
mllilmir, aTJwhose rich find of gold-
bsaring quartz oa Trxnda we made
mention in our issue of yesterday, called
at our office this afternoon and showed
us the specimens wtiich be had knocked
from off the outcrop. He says
he findaR almost impossible to
make people believe that the
sample rock which he carries in his
pocket, rcolrjr came from. Texada. He
has named his claim the " Welcome,"
and can trace the ledge by an occasional
outccop for some 500 or 000 feet. It is
situated aliout a mile from the " Golden

LITERARY IMPOSTORS.
We have been strongly urged try
several of our readers to reply to a letter
headed " The Attitude of thc San Francisco Press in re Esquimau," signed
" Syntax," and which appeared in
Wedneaday's issue of the Free Press—
which letter purported lo he a scathing
criticism of an article which appeared in
our issue of the same ilay. Our own feeling in the mstter prompted us to merely
smile when we read the letter in question; nor do we even now feel altogether
satisfied tbat we are not insulting the
public by rebutting the would-be adverse
criticism of our contemporary's anonymous correspondent. He, the writer in
question, surely assumes that tbe community in which he lives, must be
entirely composed of ignorant, unlettered
boors, when he—whoever he may be—
dares to.set himself up as a teacher.
Doubtless our article was more or less
faulty in style; we make no pretence of
super-literary ability. On the contrary,
we gladly welcome honest criticism upon
our expressed views. In this ease, ]n i w-
ever, " a fool rushed in ■ where
angels did no't choose to tread." We
hope our readers will pardon the slight
alteration wa have seen fit to make in
Pope's immortal poem. And now let us
proceed to examine for one moment this
superlatively funny literary curiosity.
II It serves no other purpose we shall at
least get a hearty laugh, aud as so little
occur* in our small world at which it is
possible to even smile, we think this
alone will afford us sufficient excuse for—
to some extent—pushing this matter
unduly forward, though our only purpose
in so doing is to ask the public to decide
as to the winner in the contest.
The writer of the letter to the Free
Press opens hie attack by stating that, in
tha article criticised, we "spread" ourselves. Then he calmly accuses us of
"writing slang," when we use the word
"•top."' We are well aware that "flop"
Is UBorthodox, but we used it as we use
many other American words und expres-
sions nol to be found in the Imperial
Dictionary, because it expressed our
meaning far' better than nny English
synonym of which we were master. So
muoh tor that charge. Next, the writer
goes on to accuse us of "bad gramnicr,
bad spelling, untenable assertions," etc.
Ii any of our readers will take the trouble to compare our critic's letter with thc
article criticised, we shall he a little more
than satisfied' on the head of the, somewhat vague charge, of hud grammar.
As lor the "untenable assertions"—
that must remain more or less
a matter of opinion. The ' instance
oi laul spelling given, is our writing
"iovrcombe" for "bun kuui" (sic!)
Our answer is, we did not write "buncombe." What we did write, was
"eu/icombe," and such is the spelling
a person named Webstei adopts. True
the great lexicographer did not know
much about the correct spelling of words,
yat we think all things considered, we
•refer his opinion-on such a matter, to
that of the person signing himself "Syntax," whp. insists, as we have pointed
out, that it should be "bun hum." Next
he asks, can any-one make sense of this
sentence. "Thus,'the most influential—
because the most widely read—portion of
theprasiof the Pacific Coast." If our
judges will again take tlie trouble lo read
the context, we -think that like ourselves, they will be seized .with a perfect
oacathts ridendi, at tbe egregious
stupidity of this would-be Mentor.
Again "Syntax" accuses us of speaking
of "Acbili.es wounding some "her" in
the heel." What we did say was that
owing to her vast possessions, unless
Great Britain occupied fortified positions
in many parts of the world, "her enemies
might easily wound her—AcHn.LES-like—
is her vulnerable heel. Once more we how
te oar audience, and await their verdict.
Next, exception Is taken to our use of the
words-" he of Great Britain, will stand
shoulder to shoulder with he of the
Ureal American Republic." Well! let
" Syntax '} turn to Macaulev's Essay
oa Wsstfuia Hahtinos, and he will, if we
remember aright, find a sentence
very similar, excepting the won In
" American Republic." Granted Lord
Macaulsy is allowed tobcaeonuuinmatc
master oi " style," yet wbo knows but
what " Syntax'' may be a ionium-
mater II! We hope we do not weary
our resderB, but we are' enjoying ourselves ao hugely, that perhaps we forget
that others may tire of our analysis of tbe
mental capacity of " Syntax." We have,
however, osme to the " thirdly and
lastly 'tai beloved brethren " part of our
defease. We are told that it is incorrect
ta say a "select navy," " Syntax "
with superb effrontery—in- nn aside—
says he is " ndt very obtuse," (but takes
exception 'o " select navy," though not
to a " select evening party." fjiin.vi
Trrrcu, aad Nut-all each give ns the
meaning of " selec'f "—"'chosen, picked
out," etc. Now our knowledge of " select
evening narties " is nil, so though we push
no opinion on his (Syntax's) use of .the
word, wvr hold that we ourselves were
strictly within-its proper meaning. Wc
coatees to a feeliug of latent shame, in
that we have used, so to say. a ton hammer to crack a nut—yet we hold that if a
nut hss to be cracked at all, it is as well
to do the work thoroughly.
Two famous representative men have
lately favored the world with tlieir opinions concerning the "Gladstonian policy"
and "Home Rule"—One, the great ex-
Radical chieftain, Mr. Chamberlain, on
whose shoulders has descended the
mantle of John Bright—the other, Lord
Brabotirne—than whom, (as all who
know and love the mother country as do
we ourselves, are aware, there exists no
more disinterested, upright mini (aristocrat thoiHdi be be),throiighouttheEmpire.
A man of whom Mr. Gladstqne might
have said, aa he did say of Lord Hartington, a "very prince of honor, and the
flower of chivalry." We give Mr. Chamberlain's views upon the question lirst.
They were embodied in aletter sent to
an Islington Unionist :—
"It is perfectly true that, in 1885, Mr.
Chamberlain was nt variance with Lord
Hartington—us, indeed, he waa with
many other I.iberals--iu reference to
what was culled the 'unauthorized programme.' At that time Mr. Chamberlain was pressing (or Liberal reforms,
which have since beon adopted by the
Liberal party generally, but which at
that time received very little support
either from Mr. Gladstone or anyone
else. In answering your questions, Mr.
Chamberlain would urge the desirability
of bringing your opponents to discuss
the merits of the question, instead of attempting to divert the issue by personal
attacks. The real points to be determined are, What iB the present policy of
the Gladstonian party, and is it a wise
and just one? If vou pursue these inquiries, you will find that the Gladston-
ians ore following their leader blindly,
and that they have uot the least idea
where be is taking them. Tbey cannot
say bow the representative of Iretantl at
Westminster is to be maintained; nor
what"is to be the treatment of Ulster;
nor Ijflw the land question is to be dealt
with; nor in what way the supremacy of
the Imperial Parliament is to bo preserved. Yet these are all questions of
principle, and on their determination
depends entirely the wisdom of any Irish
policy. It is contrary to the flrst principles of Liberalism for men to yield
their judgment in this abject way, and to
promote the success of a party in absolute ignorance of the policy to which
thnt success is to lead."

Iii reply to a Blackburn correspondent,
Lord Brabourne sends the following letter:—"3, Queen Anne's-gate, London, S.
W., April 1881). Sir,—I left Mr, Gladstone's party in 1880-1 because 1 felt sure
that his (then) new Irish policy would
land him where it has done—viz., in the
arms of the so-called Nationalist party in
Ireland, which founded itself upon abuse
of Great Britain, and separation. If that
party'has changed, it has given the lie to
all its protestations against the Saxon
previous to Mr. Gladstone's alteration of
policy. Ho far as 1 know, Mr. Gladstone
bus 110 Home Utile proposals now. He
made proposals in 1886 which dissatisfied
the country and broke up bis party. In
my opinion the same thing would occur
again if he should make definite proposals for Home Rule legislation, and therefore he keeps any such in the background,
and prefers to talk vaguely of Home Rule
being the'union of hearts,'and to hint
nt great resnltB which would follow his
renewed power to experimentalize where
he lias so signally failed before. The
Liberal party should be the progressive
party, and Home Rule—I. c. the separation of the one great Parliament of the
Empire—would not he progressive, but
retrograde; and as such every true Liberal should, in my view, oppose it. Extended local government is another thing
altogether."

LOVE   IS .BEST.
Miiiden, frolicsome and fair,
Life la joyous, not a care,
Love you know not, neither sorrow.
Lire today and trust to-morrow.
"Should I love?" the maid replies j
"Lore steals youth, brings tears and sigh*.
Liberty Is far above;
Give me that and farewell lore."
Maiden, now we meet once more,
Changed your song from that of yore.
When the' leaping billow a foam
Round yie crags that shield your home,
When die sea fog creeps before you,
Waving ghostly shroud shapes o'er you.
Then your heart, with longing mad,
Prays for him, your sailor lad;
Ail the woman rising, yearns
For the love the maiden spurns.
'*Why not lover" the wife replies;
"Naught In life yields sweeter prize.
Love Is lasting, Life Is weary.
Love lifts shadows dark and dreary,
Pours the golden glamour o'er us,
Hallows all that Iio before us.
Tired hearts have e'er confessed,
Storm or sunlight, Love Is beet.1'
—Mortimer Foy in Godey's Lady's Book.
THE FALLEN PINE.
The poets tell us of a period (it is always "a long time ago") when all the
animals conversed as well oa sung, and
when—if we believo the immortal legends
—every created thing had its expressive
tongue.
Wo aro told that oven the very stones
had language audible and eloquent. The
Old Testament gives us moro than one
instance of tho time when what wo now
call tho inanimate spuko in instructive
tones.
The story of the trees who wanted a
king to rule over them isntuong tho most
interesting. Thero is another tradition
which, while it does not lie in tho authority of the Scriptures, has scriptural fact
as ita basis. Who is thero that hoe not
heard the legend of the Aspen, which
received the curse of a porpotual imloj
because of its refusal to bow its head in
sorrow on the doleful day of the crucifixion, when all nature was in mourning!
The story of the Aspen is tho story of
Pride. Let me tell you another—the
legend of the Fallen Pino. Tills, however, cannot claim n birth coeval with
creation or the crucifixion, for the impress of modern thought is seen in the
coinage of the tale.
Have you ever traveled over among
the Sierras, and have you over listened
to the croonlngs of the old priestesses and
nuns there?
It will bo a long time before tho lust
vestiges of the early Spanish ecclesiasti-
ciflin is gone from thoso regions in our
far west, where its missionaries half
wasted heroio lives, especially in the sunset lands of the New World. But I nni
not Bure that what 1 am about to relate
comes from tho pious cxilo from tho
mother country. But whero did the
"good mother" who related it to mo receive it?
Listen to the legend, though If you
have traveled in the Sierras you may
have heard the story there:
There is, by a wayside, a great fallen
pine. YouBeo in tho slopes of tho Sierras
many of its companions—pines (not redwood) with a girth of moro than thirty
feet at your height above their base. At
the foot of this prostntto monarch, its
near companion of centuries ago, there
still stands a mighty oak, tossing its
brawnjr, mossy arms to the sky. It stands
a vigil, perhaps now neither sorrowing
nor exulting. If you enter tho little
cabin near by the "good mother," though
It may be that she has nunir t>oon a real
mother at all, earning her title by deed:,
of devotion, heroism and sacrifice, and
' we might therefore say that the "ancient
maiden" thero will tell you} not like tin
story monger at Waterloo who rehearse:.
for a sou the affair there to the great
historian of "Les Miserabies," but wii!
recount to you the long, long quari •
betwixt the pine and the oak. As yoi
may never travel there, or jpejhaps tin
old croon ls there no more, for It Ita
been years since I woe there,! will then
fore tall you the story as it oame to me.
It waa many and many years ago thin
tho pine and the oak sprang up there,
side by aide. They grew together lovingly and happily until they had paaslil
the period of their "teens," as ihe world
expresses it. At length, ana when, In
the language of tho modern pen, they
began to hear the gossip of the world.
when they heard of "society," when
they heard of the jealousies anions:
neighboring beauties, and the contrast
lug of the virtues of trees, then i;
was that troubles began. The winds thut
came from far off seas (for It Is a stormy
country there) tossed their branches together, and tbo "family jars" may be
said to havatten commenced In earnest.
The harsh wood of the oak rubbed
against the tender pine, and white blood
ran front the open veins. "You are becoming loo familiar over there I" It was
the ptn« that spoke thus, while the oak
replied: I
"Pooh! your smell is disagreeable, and
that vile' blood of yours has defiled my
fingers 1"
"You are a cross vixen; don't scratch
me so," the pine now complained.
The clouds wept and with their team
the wounds of the ptne.   But
ould not blot out the memory of
' t words spoken. ,
' timo the winds came, and they
I frequently, for it is„ju> I have said,
ny country there—overy time the
loatne the wrangles were renewed,
and the bitter and roprouchful complaining words would como again.
The pine called the oak an obstinate
ana cruel neighbor, vowing he would no
longer live by his sldo. Hear his resolution:
"I am going to leave you; I shall grow
far away from you;" and forthwith tlio
pine turned his head away in disdainful
pride. He grew away from the oak. He
grew rapidly—far more so than his neigh -
bor—and was soon high up In the sky, his
branches leaning far ana anxiously to
the morning light He wafted back, it
is satd, this farewell to the oak: "Good-
by, Sorubl Ton can scratch my face
no morel"
- From this time on It was a war ol
words only, for tho branches ot the plnn
grew further and further away. The
plno boasted of hla virtues, and of the
ink's Inferiority.     Again tbore was i.
"Good-by, Scrub!"
Tbo oak was piqued and wounded to
iho core.   Ho shouted up to tho pine:
"I don't care what you say about me!
I know I am prized above you for my
noble qualities of strength and toughness
and weight."
"You boast of your virtues, you clumsy
Ihingl" retorted the pine. "You say yon
are useful, while I am not only useful
but 1 am ornamental—a joy in tbe world.
1 am light of weight: am easily wrought.
I travel over all the enrth; am found in
every placo and in every mansion under
the sun, especially wliere thero is a toy
that delights the eye Or the heart of
childhood."
"Yes,"   quickly   responded   the   oak, j
"but I make tho vessels that bear you in
your journeys over tlie yea."
"Bali!" said the pine, "you Iio hidden
away under the waters while I ride high
abovo you in the heavens. You aro a
very'beast of burden,1 and without me
there would be no must, no spar. Furthermore, as I am above the waters, with
my eyes I seo all the gay fashions of tbo
worldl"
"Fashions forsontb!" said the oak. "I
know tbe fashions, for I wear lliein threo
times a year, while you, like a poor
prude, have the same unvarying dress
thowhole yearrouiid—thatolif fashioned
frock which you cannot change!"
This remark stung tbo pine to tbe very
heart. There is no one who likes to have
his or her garments criticised—"made
funof," bo to speak. The pine flung book
this in reply:
"You arc a booby; you are a fickle,
fadey thing; your colors soon change."
"Oh, yes," said the oak, "1 know I
change my livery; I get a now garment
ever-) year, fresh nnd beautiful, from the
great milliner, Nature; and even if my
old clothing does fade, the world says that
in tho sober seasons of the year my garb
is lovely and becoming."
And tho pine continued to grow further
and further awny with its branches.
The oak Btood leafless and trembling in
the winter's cold, while the gay neighbor
was rejoicing in its evergreen splendor,
as it saw the many scions, of its family
around the varied mansions of earth—
ornaments of a fadeless type.
Tlie oak cast bis eye downward and
behcid tho rich wealth at his feet.
"Whom do you feed?" he cried, as ho
saw tho great harvest of acorns scattered
around, and upon which the beasts of
tho field and fowls of tlio nir were feasting and fattening.
"I feed the sick!" replied the pino with
a sigh. "Not only this, but tho very
ships which you boast of making, all receive a coating that conies from me."
Then the oak said: "If you do feed
tho sick, I warm aud comfort tlio poor,
tho peasant and the prince alike."
"Yes, and 1 embellish the world even
with so poor a thing ns the smoke that 1
send away," impatiently retorted the
pine.
And so they continued to boast and to
quarrel as tho years ran on. I need not
tell you all that the good mother recounted to mo of the long, long troubles
between those neighbors. But the pine
grow further and further away, its
branches gathering weight with every
summer sun. Again tho storms came—
for I havo told you it was a stormy country thero among tho Sierras—and the
autumn's rain had pelted tho earth and
the forest with long and steadfast fury.
"Seo how I defy oven tho blasts of
j winter!" exultantly cried out the pine:
| tlio   winrln   that    rushed    through    his
i branches were heard ouly in sighs and
moans.
The oak, with his shorn limbs, stooi I
trembling, whilo tho fierce tempesi
came; its fury passed by, and tho oak
waved in obeisance. But thp proud
pine, with heavy mantle and crown
high in the heavens, his hold on tin
earth weakened by the softening win! et
rains, and leaning far away from the
lino of rectitude in his efforts to avoid
tho oak. But I need not tell ttjoeton
further—for tot tho pine is fallen!
And the good mother wii) tell you, as
the'moral, of her song, that tho story ol
thoplno is also the story of pride—M,

Verbal Slips.
The verbal slips that a preacher or lecturer Inadvertently makes are often re
membered long after every thought in
Ids address has been forgotten. Thei
aro often iaughably funny.
A lecturer said: "I must beg you te
give me your undivided attention; indeed, it is absolutely impossible that you
could form a true idea of the hideous
animal of which we are about to speak
unless you koop your eyes on mo."
A certain preacher, discoursing upon
Bunyon and his works, caused a titter
among his hearers by exclaiming: "In
thoso days, my brethren, we want more
Bunyans." Ai
Another clergyman, pleadiriifeavncstly
with liis..pai'lsh loners for the const rue tion
of a cemetery tor tlieir palish, asked
them to consider they deplorable condition of 80,000 Christian Englishmen living without Christian burial."

Important   Part   I'layeil   by  Competition.
A man who bad received a cable mes-
sago composed of nothing but names of
cities went lo an expert maker of cipher
codes to seo if he could throw any light
on the meaning.
"Have you made no personal arrangement with any correspondent by which
thoso names of cities are to stand for certain phrases?" asked tbo expert.
"I have not.'' answered the man. "1
came to you becauso I thought you might
havo some code containing the ciphers.'*
"There is no printed code that contains
proper names as ciphers," said the expert. "The reason is this: The cable
companies accepted nil kinds of business
nt lirst, even combinations of letters
which spelled nothing. But they soon
found that tho ingenuity of their merchant patrons enabled them to send almost any messngo at the cost of but a
fow words, by devising codes wherein
each letter stood for a phrase, and
wherein even the juxtaposition of letters
nnd numerals, which in themselves bad
meanings, Indicated still other meaning! Of course this reduced tho prof
its of tho cable companies, so they began
to make rules. They refused to transmit any combination of letters unless it
spelled an actual word. Then they lim
ited the number of languages thoy would
transmit. Then they. refused to take
proper names, unless tho context showed
tbey wore a proper part.
'All this, of course, was to mako it so
bard to get up satisfactory and permanent cablo codes that tho merchant would
bo compelled for safety's sako to resort
to straight out and out discourse in framing his messages. But as the difficulties
increased men began to mako specialties
of devising ingenious codes, and finally
the companies had to come out flat footed
and refuse to transmit messages in cipher.
Of course this was a sovero blow to trade,
as a vast quantity of small basin^ascould
not then bo done, Becauso tha oust of
cabling about it cut off most of tho oven
tual profit .
CARRIE WAS VERY ILL.
"But ovqn then codes wero used, but
of a curious sort. In ono that I know of.
for instance, it was arranged that a certain largo catalogue of common verbs,
nouus, adjectives and prepositions should
bo understood to have no meaning whatever. Tho cipher words wero made tip
outside of this catalogue, and tho exempted words were used to fill in, giving
tho somblanco of an actual, straight out
sentence. Hero was a sentence, for in-
stance that I cabled whilo a clerk inn
shipping house
"Currlo very 111. Tell Thomas prepare nitrate;
Ananias goiaaj telegraph Josephine.
"That looks innocent; yet this is what
it meant:

'That is to say, 1 sent twenty-six
words at a cost of eleven words, whilo I
appeared to tile cable coin patiy to be merely transmitting a communication that
poor Carrie was sick, ami that Ananias
•S).ts going to telegraph Josephine about
it it must have Beomcd strange to the
operators that \ve« should telegraph
Thomas, who was 8,000 miles away, to
prepare medicine for Carrie, who was
presumably in Now York", especially as
the rate then was aliout §0 a word. It
must also bavo seemed strange tbat Cart
rio got very ill every timo thero was a
rise in tho nitrate market, But tho mes-
sago was straight distiAttfSt, dnd of
courso tho companies h?d nothing to do
but accept tho message.
"NO OrPHBRS i'Kstlim'ED."
"Competition finally came to tho merchant's aid. Now cable lines, seeking
business, offered more liberal conditions,
and gradually the merchant acquired, as
his recognized right, tho power of usiii;,
a cipher code. Still, most of tho original
petty rctrictions were adopted by all
competitors. Among theso wero tho regulations against proper names. As u
matter of fact, hi tho present stato of
competition, ouo is tolerably safo in using
proper names and ciphors, for each company is afraid of driving custom to a
rival by applying the rule. Consequently
thero aro any number of small personal
or temporary codes agreed upon between
mau and man to servo a certain immediate ptu'pose, in which names of towns
or persons figure as ciphers. But wc
professional codo makers, who compile
and print expensive codes for sale to the
public, carefully avoid infringing oven
dead letter rules, becauso we do nol
know when somo big cablo company
may swallow up a smaller Competitor
whom ouo of our patrons patronizes and
screw down tho thumbs on somo rule, to
tho disadvantage of our patron and ourselves,
"Looking over this catalogue hero of
tho cablo lines of tho world, you will
still find a dozen or more companies,
chiefly loeatod in tho ends of Asia, Ai
rica and Polynesia, wlio boldly advertise. 'No ciphers permitted.' tiiatmeaus
that thoy havo a monopoly of their particular fields and aro working their diamond mines for all they'ro worth. In
no line of business is tbo advantage of
good competition shown moro strongly
than in cabling. Morchants who dSil

| dued naturo around them, uud in their first
j lease of freedom they do muuy wild, gro-
tetfiuouud ovun improper things, That is
why your ancestors, the argonauts, gave such
dreadful names to these towus—such as
"nangtOsvn," ''Mui'dcrei-s' Bar," "Shirtail
Cimyon."ajwlthe.Uke.v ft was- a reaction
fro.iiai.e pretentious style so long practiced in
tho eastern states and older countries. Tho
tendency to call sorte ouo horse town—Rome,
or Athens, or Ithaca—names generally sug-
gofiffed by some village literary pomposity,
too, shows his classical education. Reveling
i.i their freedom the argonauts tn tho earlier
days invented within a couple of yean a new
wt of tof ins, almost a now laugiiage, bred out
of the country iteelf and the new conditions
and modes of lifo abovo them—such as
"Panned out," t(Givo up the fluine,"''BifcfcV'
"Strapped," "Busted" and "Potored ou£,"
Men liked to talk improperly and in an outlandish fashion, bochusy in the older states
thu schoolmaster's rod tjrst and the rod of
popular opinion afterivrtrd' had been so long
hold over them to make them talk properly.
Ihey have been" tnade so to do in so far as
thoy did not out of lovo, hut fear, aud anything learned out of fear will be rejected afterward for a time, oven though it be a good
thing. It Is a luxury for a boy to wade
through a mud puddle and soil his clothes
when at home he bos been from first to lost
licked into, clean garments, and the first and
last thought associated with u pair of clean
pantaloons is his mother's threat that if ho soils
them he will bo punished. California gave her
first settlors liberty to dress, talk and act in
many things about as they pleased. Off courso
whon mon lirst have liberty in anything they
aro apt to abuse it, or rather make a bad use
jf iL. But liberty they've gut to havo somo
timo or othor lief oro they can learn to moke a
proper uso of it. You can't mako an expert
horseman unless you glvo him full liberty
with tho horsy, That is a very shaky kind of
goodliest* or virtue which always docs the
conimonduble' thing because somo, one else
lays it Is tho thing*to do. That kind of goodness is very often deep down In tho depths
wanting to do tbe forbidden thing, but not
•Jaring to do it for lack of opportunity.
Many of your solid citizens of today, pillars of church, state and society, during
their earlier years in California wont for
things forbidden in thu older states "flat
footed." They wont for tho fandango, for
faro, for monte, for the bar—for anything
and everything which tho Now England Sunday school said was wrong. They went and
•mv, and tried and tasted, aud drank to tht
dregs, and found the cup bitter, and the account, when footed up in thc ledger of
health, to lie a losing ono, uud being men of
judgment, balance and ceimmon sense, they
put away the evil thing once and) for-
9ver. having satisfied tiietnselves dut of their
mnoxptrkiioe that tho evil thing did not
pay, antrthey really wantm*novmore of It.
Thoy could then pans tho gilded portals of
jlunger without coring to go in, and that is
'probably moro" thnn" ever they could have
.lone had they remained in the older states
and trod nearly tfrupyme path their fathera
trod. • tf l|f I Iii I tl I'M    »

Iu tlie Had Chase to Get the Seed Into
the Ground and the Grain Harvested tbe
Little iellows Are Worked Almost to
Death—A Mother's Story.
I would like to say a word in favor of our
farmer boys, who, as a class, are sadly overworked in the rush of spring work or through
i the hot days of harvest,
A great many farmers undertake so much
I that, in order to get the crops in iu season,
everything must  como  to time, whilo the
j boys, colts and everything else on tho placo is
pressed into service for all they are able to do.
Now, if the boys have to work bo hard, it
seems to me tbey should be allowed a shorter
day, and not bo compelled to go from sun up
to sun down, as well as the older ones. They
aro really to Iw pitied, if ono stops to think of
it, for if anything is wanted whilo getting
ready to go to the Held, it is, "Hero Tom, run
and gr*t it, and step lively," und as soon us
that (mrtlculnr tiling is brought, then something cl to is 'v.iutc-l, mid when ready to go to
.vol',: Tuui ban i-uu enough to bo already tired:
then, "Isou see that you keep thoso horses go
Ing" iw a bit of parting advice.
Then, after a long day's plowing, thero
aro tho cows to be brought from tho pasture.
Of course, Tom being tbo youngest, has that
to do, too. Aud after supper is over ho must
milk, ull of which is well enough if ho was
only allowed a shorter day than the others,
and very frequently whilo tbo others stop
during-tho Hay for rest Tom must go tor a
jug of water, us "boys don't get tired.'' I
believe in their working as thoy aro able, but
have known so many boys hi jurod from over
work that I cannot retrain from Baying a
fow words in tho hope that they may do a
little good. Our dear, warm hearted, willing
boys, whose work we can only appreciate
when they are ill or absent; then we seo how ■
much help they have been.
"THE FLOWS WEBB ALL BROKE."
I was well acquainted with one boy, who
helped break up all the ground for a large
crop.- [Io was only 14 and small of his age,
and he worked right along with bis father, a
very strong man, until the crops were in, and
the day they finished planting corn, at sup
per time, I said to him, when be came in
"Why, George, what is the matter?" For
as long as I live I can nover forget the tired, ,-
dejected, drooping Uttle figure as he stood in
the door. "Oh, nothing, only tired," with a i
pathetic little smile. In a day or two he was j
taken down with fever, and for weeks lay at j
death's door simply from overwork. Tho j
first week of his illness he raved continually '
about his work, and it was enough to break :
one's L*)art to hear him urging his team to |
their work; or his plow would "break, or it I
was "sohard tothrow thedb't uphill." He
kept this up for a week, nover a minute's
rest ulght or day, and e.\iry day bis voice
grew weaker, until one day be opened his
eyes, und looking around tho room said, "thc
plows oro all broke," and never mentioned
them again. But for weeks he was not out
of danger. (.
Now where was anything gained in that
transaction. A long; illness to ta borne, a .
largo doctor's bill to pay; besides the ct»rc*uid j
anxiety such an illness caused his parent.-, j
As he was slowly recovering, his physician j
said: "This illness was caused moro trom '
overwork than anything else; now, seo that
ItisneYordonijagain."
Another case of boy's overwork, which 1
know to be true, was where a man set a boy
of 11 years of ago to plowing, and the only
way he could turn the plough was to put his
head under tho cross pieces, between tho
bundles, lotting it rest on tho bock of his
neck, until be injured his spine and was taken
sick and lived only a few days. In the intense heat of harvest is another terrible time
for the boys; hard, indeed, for strong men.
MAKES A MOTHER'S HEART ACHE.
Last summer oar own boy, a stout young
fellow of 10, who had worked from early
spring with scarcely a day's intermission, or
without a word of complaint, side by Bide
with another man much older than himself,
then through four or five weeks of harvest
until a day or two before it was over, came
into my room (I wai ill at the time) looking
so sad and worn that it frightened me, and I
said to him: "What is the* matter, dear, don't
you feel well?" "Oh, ma," he said, "I am
Just nearly dead, my head aches so, just look
at my hands," holding up bis hands, perfectly
covered inside with callouses and blisters,
while his lips quivered and tears stood in his
dark oyes, something, that I bad not seen for
years, for he is usually too proud to complain
" Yesterday my noso bled until I could hardly
go. I do wish father would let the off this
afternoon; wont you ask bim to?" How it
weut to my mother heart to have to tell him
that father said "no, must try and get
through while toe fair weather lasts," only a
mother can know, And there waa a good deal
of bitterness in my thoughts tbat afternoon
as I thought of my boy and hts sorrowful
face.
His father .did notinenn to bo hard, for if '
he hod been sunstruck or stricken down with
illness he would flfen'nave counted his grain
of very little wctih'befcido the lifo of his boy,
but ho only thought then of the work ou hand
aud that tbo resting cpuld bo.dono some other
lime. But thai is 'ens; reason: wbytso many
(toys leave their home* so soon and so thor
ough despise farming, when a little good
judgment, tempered with mercy for them,
would do moro good than all the stern com
uuuids that were ever ottered.
j "Oh, if we could only live the post live
years over again," said a friend whoso only
child, a promising boy of 18, had died of con
suinptltJW, "foreknow ho • worked too hard.
Ho was" always so willing' and wo nover
stopped to think that the work might be too
much for him. But now we can seo where !
we did, wrong." \What a pity all parent*. !
canVfot see, before they meet with some such
trouble, and bo really parents at heart lu
stead of thoughtless taskmasters whoso present prosperity is gained iu n great measure ut
a fearful expense-—tho broken down const i

are happy to say, arc now relegated to thc

Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrho*,

as , general Sedative, that have occurred

the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. *Afe
have never Used '.ny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction lhat it is decidedly the t>cst, and
also from a sense ot duty we owe to the proj

TENDERS.
A
state cnbihall of m* friend what assurance he requires, and what he contem-1
plates doing? While heartily commend- i
mg tne Council for Iheir endeavors to
encourage the starting ol a new iiidustn
in Nanaimo, we suggest lhal it would be j
as well that the Board of Trade, as a non-
political bodv, had the matter publicly
place*! hefore them for consideration.
Knowing as we do the uprightness aud
integrity of the City Council of Nanaimo,
it must be apparent to that body thut
there are cavillerB everywhere, and in tbe
event of their conceding such demands
as are made by the embryo pottery
company, there would sure to be a kick
somewhere. But on the other hand if
the Uoaid of Trade had the opportunity
of flrst considering the matter and then
referred their decision to the Mayor and
Council for their approval or disapproval
as the case might l>e, all such future
trouble would be averted. Many have
already complained that in the event of
the Council deciding to grant certain
privileges to the Pottery Co. it would
cause a considerable amount of discontent to those who have started various
other enterprises in this city without any
aid whatsover, though the majority favor
the scheme and would be willing to see it
assisted. By placing the matter in the
hands of the Board of Trade all after
trouble would be avoided.
Needlc.lv Alarmed.
In speaking of the Esquimalt formications the Timet says "land batteries are
valuable it is true, bnt with a coast so
Indented with commodious harbors as
Vancouver Island,and in fact a coast that
permits the landing of troops almost anywhere, nothing short of a powerful chain
ol batteries involving the entire circuit
of the island, wonld prove a check to an
invading force."
... evidently our contemporary in speaking in this manner did not consider that
even if a hostile force had succeeded in
evading the vigilance of the British navy,
end had succeeded in landing on Vancouver Island that there were yet almost
insurmountable obstacles placed in the
road of a further progress of a large body
of men with artillery and horses. The
Galf is of course supposed to be protected
by batteries at Esquimalt which would
make it very difficult for au enemy to
pass that way, therefore the only feasible
plan left is to cross ibe Gulf higher up or
. ets$ct a landing on the west coast. In
either case: there would be great diilicul-
tiaa for them to surmount before they
could bring their armament to bear oh
any place of note. The pathless forest of
■ the north-eastern portion of the island
woald have to be made passable by cutting aad making roads, daring which
time the opposing army, which would
have control of the available means of
transit, would be in a position to give
them a warm welcome, or in the case of
their landing on the west coast und hoping to make use of the Alberni road as a
means of entrance to 'Nanaimo, they
would quickly find that the mountainoui
regions of the interior of Vancouver Island were not to be despised as a means
of defence to the inhabitants.
Fr.kably Drowned.
At six o'clock yesterday morning thu
attention of Mr. W. Shears, of Shears A
Page, was called to a boat lying ou the
beach in front of his residence on Dallas
Road, James Bay, Victoria. Un making
aa investigation Mr. Shears found a sliding seat racing boat bottom up with one
af the sculls missing and the seat. Mr.
Shear* brought the news into this city
and discovered that Mr. Thos. Jones
rented the boat yesterday afternoon to a
strange young man dressed in black
clothes. The stranger called at the boat
house at 2 o'clock and asked for it sail
boat. Mr. Jones refused to let him have
one on account of the rough sea outside
the harbor. The stranger then asked for
a light boat. Mr. Jones thought the man
wanted to take a spin up the Arm and
accommodated him with the boat found
on the beach yesterday morning. There
la little doubt about the fate of the
stranger who acted in a very foolhardy
manner by leaving the harbor. His
name is at present unknown. The fact
that tba seat waB gone and the boat up
turned.showB that he was drowned in the
Straits. The boat was brought to the
city by Mr. Jones, who says he was not
at ail acquainted with the man. The
police are making inquiries, but no
light has been thrown on the matter.—

Change of Judges.
P. Sabiston and George Kennedy, who
wen appointed judges in the sailing
race, have withdrawn from their positions. Mr. Sabiston says he will lie
unable to attend owing to other duties,
and Mr. Kennedy will sail a boat himself, so of course hud to resign. W. C.
Halleck and Aid. Abrams have been requested to fill their positions and have
Kindly consented. The race is timed for

that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tulwrcle Germs into the
