that in September, 1888, Cronin told him
after the trial in Buffalo, thut his
(Cronin's) life was in danger, saying:
"Mac, I believe, that maiVyAlexander Sullivan will lie tlie irjatigutor of my
death. There are paper* and ailidavits
in Mr. Conklm'snafe relating to this

tlhicago, June fii—fhe police have
an important clew to the murdcier of Dr.
Cronin, they have found the Express
man who' hauled the murderer's good*
from the building :it 117, Clark Street to
Carlton Cottage; Accordinif to the Expressman the fellows belong to Chicago,
and he has seen both of them frequently
since he hauled their goods. The last
time he saw them wss last Saturday. The
Expressman's description lollies ckately
with that of l.ilon's who bought the furniture from Revel A Co., and of William*
who rented the cottage from Corlson'B.
The police believe the two men arc (till
in town and thev are relying on the Expressman to find them.

New York, June 5.—The direct I'nited
States Cable Co. has made a new word
in the time occupied in sending messages between England and New York in
conveying the result oti**-* race for the
Derby Slakes to thc llriit«*d Pre** in the
unprecedented time of two seconds. The
transmission of the newr between Epsom Downs and the United Press office
wns continuous, that is to say, that the
last letters of the name of theVinnorhad
not been Bent by the operator at Epsom
Downs before the flrstlettersofthe name
were beard in the office of the' I'nited
Press iu New York, so that in reality the
time occupied in transmission may be
said without exaggeration to be incom.
putable.

are expressed that many persons will

reservoir having "been washed out. There
was 10 feet of water in the highest location in the city. The Irwin House was
submerged to a depth of 11 feet, and many
houses in the suburbs have lieen swept

In thc midst of Una scene of death aud

woman will wear almost s year without

green satin corset flossed and Inood with cardinal silk, and trimmed at the top and bottom with flue white lace, for which he paid

Another customer was so extremely modest
that he never went into tijo store, but bis
wife took his measure and ordered tbe corsets, fitting them on her«aU when they
were finished. It requires three visits to insure a perfect fitting const—cue for the
measure, which Is taken very carefully; one
tor the"htting, when only hut the bones are
In and tb* steels basted in place, and one for
the final examination, when everything is
flnisb*d. After ono perfectly fitting corset
has been made, however, only one fitting is
required.

from the creek in such s suite ot preservation as to render identification possible. Many hundreds bf victims, however, will be roasted and charred in such
n shopeleas mass as to preclude all chance
of recognition. Thc work of clearing up
the wreck and removing the bodies is
now being conducted most systematically.
Over six hundred men aro at work in
various portions of the valley, and each
most frequent ailment*, and pneumonia is
sure to be very prevalent because af tbe
exposure in water and dampness. There
arc 2000 sick in general hospitals here,
and in the borough already, and there
will be three times, as many. We must
arrange to disinfect the city immediately.
Two carload* of disinfectants have already
been received, but a train load will be
required." Tlie" list of the recovered
dead kept up its appalling growth to-day,
but the list of those recognised is not so
large as yesterday, owing to thc tact that
many of the bodies ore burned beyond
recognition or decomposed. The ascertained list of -2,300 bodies yesterday was
augmented hy 138 mon- in Johnstown,
Cambria and Kerusville. There is n large
number at Woodvale, and it is said 'it at
Nineveh and vicinity. The undertaker*
ore becoming fagged out, they having
worked day and niglit for 72 boars.
Johnstown, Pa., Jane 4.—The resident
{■ortion of Woodvale Borough is
plctely wiped out. The property loss is
estimated at $35,<O0,U00. On the hills
above the wrecked village ie presented
the worst spectacle of the hour; here are
clustered the several thousand inhabitants who escaped, ond unless aid is given
them soon, they must perish of want.
Starvation stares them in the face. They
are so fnr abova Johnstown that relief
parties have not yet reached tbem and
only a few provisions have been brought
up to them by the other survivors in
Johnstown. Several have lost their
minds, and it is feared that tbe horrors
of death by starvation or the worst horrors of madness must soon overtake them
unless relieved. A large number of live*
are lost.
Johnstown, June 4.—Superintendent
Morgan, of the Cambria Iron Co., who is
regarded as an exceptionally level-headed
man, returned to-day from visiting the
entire flooded district. He declared that
only about 15,000 persons are now alive
where 2t>,50J lived and had their being
before the flood. Adjutant-General
Hastings maintains the death list may
not exceed 8,000, and of this number he
thinks 3,000 bodies will never be recovered. Mr. McConongh, Chief of Bureau
Registration, said to-day that he is convinced that the number that perished is
fullv 10,000 or more.
Washington, June 4.—President Hsr-
rison presided at a meeting this afternoon
held for (lie relief of the Johnstown sufferers. The President delivered a most
eloquent address on taking thV chair. He
suggested that people go and ring their
church bell* to gather thoughtless
peoplo and remind ther* of the necessity
lo respond to the appeals of the afflicted
in the flooded districts. The meeting
was n most enthusiastic one, and $10,000
wus contributed on Ibe spot. An immense amount of clothing and food was
donated hy merchants and citizens.
New York, June 4.—Fifty doctors of
both sexes, slid other members of the
Society of Medical Jurisprudence, assembled in Steinway 1 lull this morning lo
form an A mei ii un International Congress

Rev. De Witt Tulmuxe made the address

Murray, a bachelor, aged 40 years, and
bis mother, aged 80 years, residing on
au iiiilrequcnted road in Argentine township, (jireen county, were murdered several days ago. lloth were shot in the
back of the head. The bodies were
found in a cellar where they had lieen

Pittsburg, June4.—Lewiston Junction,
Pu„ has just been heard from. The town
has been submerged, the highways covered with debris, ten feet high. Many of
the population have been fed and sheltered in the Court lieuse.
No'lives were
lost.

LITERARY SNOBS.
A little manual written by Mr. W. T.
Webb, and published In Calcutta, is designed to inform "such Indian gentlemen aa wish to depart from the traditiena
of their origin sufficiently to go out to
dinner and the like, with Europeans,"
hew ther ought to behave. The rules of
conduct which it lays down are, for the
moot pert, *o correct that the average
English gentlemen—we of course use the
word "English" in its broadest sense-
will derive little or no benefit from its
study. Here is a delicious sample of Mr.
Webb's advice as to what it is proper or
otherwise to say "in society.'' "A gen-
tlaman wonld not for instance talk about
"a pain ia his stomach," unless he were
communicating with his doctor, the
proper wotd if necessity arise* ia a&do-
mm." If this example does not inspire
oar readers with a wish for more, we can
only lay they" are for differently constituted from ourselves. There is a naive
simplicity about Mr. Webb tbat is positively touching when we consider thai
great numbers of the Hindoo gentlemen
wl>om he proposes to teach, stand as high
above their would-be preceptor both in
education and breeding as is well possible.
The practical excellence of the following
extract* makes them altogether too deli-
eioas to be pssssd over in silence: "Do not
be too ready to tadolge your curiosity.
Thus It la Ttary Impolite to make any at-
tempt toteeko-tsr the shoulder of any
oae who te tiding or writing anything,
as a toot ot a letter, without his permission." CouM there be a wiser counsel ?
Or take that s-pedmen:—"Avoid writing
begging letters." Or this:—"Do not,
therefore, write a letter to a
•Aranger, begging him to defray the expenses of your education." Agate, the Indian gentleman It
-scommeaded when be calls upon an
an Kngllaaawa not to "question him, lor
lnstaace, about his age, or the amount of
hte salary, er privato, domestic, or official -oMrtteM." Similarly, "if you are
presented with a watch, do not ask the
giver hew much It cost." "Never, -mack
your lli*-" cannot be c**J-4 lttvd fjevice to
• psrsoa about to be entertained at a
dinner party; and "Do not attempt to
contravene-the rules and regulations or
by-laws of the railway line upon which
yoa travel" is' objectionable leas on Seconal of Ite Intrinsic demerit than by
i oi ite lUrsase* to the tort of an-
i deer to the heart of Gallic official-
"All public brawl* and conten-
i are a violation of the quiet dignity
and self-respect which mark the gentle-
sun." So they aro; snd, if we express
ao sathuateam for the form in which the
is conveyed, it is only be-
tola sentimental preference for that
devised by air Francis Claverlng's foot-
saaa, who said, "A holtercation with a
teller tat tha street is never ao good."

inapplicable to our own case of British

of this country render a stricter supervision over the Indian camps dotted here
and there along thc coast very difficult.
Small soiling vessels—or rather their
owners—we believe to be the chief offenders outside of tbe towns on Vancouver
Island and the coast of the mainland.
Possibly ii some simple measure were to

be deemed suspicious, it might be the
means to some extent of checkmating
those who engage in this nefarious trade.

contend that having taken the country

can do in return is to endeavor to safeguard to the utmost of our ability the

been an unmixed good, but has, we fear,
entailed much hideous  degradation and
MISCELLANEOUS   NOTES.
A statement has recently been going
the round of the.English press that the
present Chief* Jockey during thc last
racing season received as much in fees,
retainers and presents as the Lord High
Chancellor—fees £2400; present from
owner of Derby winner £1000; retainers
£lii00;and allowing ior presents at tbe
rate of £20 for each race won £4140, total
£8740. This, it is asserted, ls by no
means an exaggerated statement. The
policy of paying large sums to jockeys
has frequently been discussed, ond those
in the habit of making valuable gifts in
money, hove been well abused Ior inconsiderate Iiberalty. The interests at stake,
however, since the horse became the instrument of gambling it now is, are so
gigantic aa to render it imperative that
Jockeys be placed beyond temptation.
The total value of the stakes which were
contested during the last year amount
we see to over £400,000, not to speak of
the sums dependent on wagers—probably
twenty times that amount. Whether,
therefore, in the face of such risks, a
thousand pounds is too littlo or too much,
or just the right sum to be given with a
view to secure the rider's honesty, who
shall say If not the man who is the proprietor of the animal, and who has possibly backed hi* horse to win him a hundred tbciaand pounds °
"Macbeth," in a letter to the Free
Prett, asks where we obtained the following quotation: "If't were well't were
well done, then 't were well't were well
done quickly." If "Macbeth" will take
his Shakespeare and turn to Scene 7,
Act 1, he will find that though our quotation is not literally exact, it any rate
expresses the same meaning which the
position. It is related that in Otogo,
where Scotchmen are a majority of the
colonists, a contract for grading a road
was to be let, and the lowest bid was
signed "McPherson." Notice was sent
to the said McPherson to visit the board
and complete the contract. In due time
they met, but behold 1 McPherson was
yellow as to his hide, and wore o most
unmistakable pig-tail. "But," gasped
the President, "your name can't be Mc-
Phertjon?" "Allee lightee," cheerfully
answered John; "no-one catch 'im cont-
lact in Otago unless he name Mac." The
contract w.'.s signed, and the yellow-
skinned McPherson did his work as well
as if he had really hailed from Glasgow.

we ourselves wished to express. We
would add that we, like most other people we imagine—do not make a practice
of looking up each quotation we mav have
occasion to make, in order to verify its
literal occurocy as to the omission or addition of a stray conjunction or indefinite article, believing that life is too
short and standard works too costly to
make such an attempt either desirable
or easy.
Fbom the British Mercantile Gazette
we learn that the Bank of England
makes "some thousands per annum by
the* lost, stolen, mislaid or hidden banknotes, which have never come in to be
counted." Just so the Paris Exposition
Commissioners are likely to profit by
great numbers of unclaimed prise*, tome
of them for a very large amount. The
surplus profit on the ten million francs
for tickets issued, after paying all expenses, purchases, artisans'visits, discount*,
etc., will amount to about half a million
dollars..
So many pleasure boats are now to be
seen in our harbor during fine weather,
that we think the following hint* may be
ol value to those unable to swim: Persons are drowned by raising their arms
above tbe water the unbuoyed weight of
which presses the head down. When a man
falls into deep water he will rise to th*
surface, and will continue tbere if he does
not elevate his hands. If be moves his
hand* under the water any way he
pleases, his head will rise high enough
to allow him full liberty te breathe; and
if he will use his legs as in the act of
walking upstairs, bis shoulder* will rise
above tbe water so tbat he may use less
exertion with his hands, or apply them
to any other purpose. These simple
directions are, oi course, not intended
for those who can swim, but many a per-
who is drowned in comparatively shallow
water and quite near shore, might essily
save his life if he would try to remember,
snd practice tbe bints given above.
Edmund Yates of the World is responsible for the following:— <
The Prince of Wales and *Dr. Lyon
Play fair were standing near a cauldron
containing lead which was boiling at
white heat. "Has your Royal Highness
any faith in science T" said the Professor.
"Certainly," replied tbe Prince. "Will
you then place your hand in the boiling
metal and ladle out a portion ol it?"
"Do you really tell me todo this?" asked
the Prince. "I do," replied tbe doctor.
The Prince then ladled out tome of the
boiling load with hit hand without sustaining any injury. It is a well-known
scientific fact that the human hand may
be placed uninjured in lead boiling at
white heat, being protected from any
harm by the moisture of the skin. Should
the lead boat a perceptibly lower temperature, the effect need not be described.
After this let no one under-rate tbe courage of the Prince of Waist--thus Mr.
Yates—[We can only say though we
have the most implicit faith in science,
yet oar faith wonld have to be "its-
plicitor" still before we ventured on such
a test as that described above.—So.]

(•abort Porter's Gothenburg Latter.]
Through tb* politeness of Capt. Q. W.
Sobrotder, oar vie* consul, I was introduced
to a A. Hedlund.proprtMor aad «drtor of
Tba Gothenburg Commercial and Shipping
Journal, and Maurita Rubarawn, asaociate
•dltor of the tarn* journal. Under th* per-
Moal guidance of these gentlemen I was enabled to learn many in tore*ting tacts relating to the several peculiar Institutions of
Gothenburg. Mr. Hedlund, wbo Is wall
kaown throughout the United States, Is tha
f*th*r of tba Gothenburg licensing system,
which, from th* beginning of this town, has
spread throughout Soandlnavia, and at the
prtnnt mom.nt I* being atudaMl by th* social *ol*ntitti of many other countries.
Ia reply to Mr. Hedlund'* earnest request
to know what he could do for me, I said:
"IMI me all about th* Gothenburg licensing
ty stem, tt* origin, it* object and tbe degreo
ef aj*aM<Mfatritag tt,"
be, "tb* Swedes, *a you
I know, drink a good deal of brandy.
With tb* txceptlon of Denmark, and par-
Bap* tb* N*tb*rl*nd>, we consume per capita
a greater quantity of spirits than any other
country ia tb* world. It I* nasdl*** for m*
to ditcua* th* craving for brandy and It*
Immoderate ooiurumptlon in Sweden. Untl
within a comparetivaly recent time every
land-owner ia Sweden pot***ttd tb* right to
dfcnlll Swedish brandy, a Spirit mad* from

awry town, while within th* saloons the
most deplorable and sc*nd»lous aoenee war*
tnaotad. With a population of about 35,000

aad mad for drunkenness—10 per cent of
the population arretted. Bnt taws* figures
4* not giv* an adequate Ida* of the evil*
arlatngfrom immoderate brandy drinking.
They moat be looked for in the nature and
»xtent of pauperism; in th* deplorable physical, moral and economic rendition Into
which a greater part of tb* poorer population, not only of Gothenburg, but all the
town* of Sweden had been plunged. Conscious of thi* condition of affair*, and being
at th* earn* Mm* a number of tb* municipal council of Gothenburg, I introduced a
resolution March 81, 1804, proposing to appoint a committee for investigating th*
actual -codltso* of pattp-rlara in the town.
A year later th* oomwdtto* preatnted with
ite report a plan ot ** n*w system for organising tb* liquor trafflo In Gothenburg."

Several sample dinner* wen placed before
ut to tut*. A large plat* of boiled or f rl*d
flah and potatoes, or of veal cuttets and potatoes, cost IT ore (»bout 5 cent*). These
were really substantial diahw, thoroughly
well oookei and cleanly served. At a ml*
tb* managers of these place, an woman.
Tb* meals are served by clean-looking and
ntatly dressed girls, who are exceedingly polite to stranger*, eepeclally
foreigners, and courtesy as bewitch-
ingly as the milk maid In "Patience."
Th* manager bind, himself to supply tb* publlo with good and well-prepared food, cold or warm, including coffee,
tea, cocoa, mineral water, cigar*, ate., on
hit own account He further binds himself
to tell splrltous liquors and wines only for
oath paid on tbe spot; not to tell to persons
"fuddled with drink, or under age;" not to
go on selling spirit* to persons who "require
Beveral drams in succession, or wbo pay renewed visit* to the public house within
abort Intervals." AU aplrltous liquors are
furnished from the company's vessels. Tbe
casks containing the liquor mutt be so kept
a* to be under strict control No liquor can
even be tervel in any but tha regulation
gl**s or mug, th* former containing two
cubic inches.
HOW IT   WORKS.
Once * weak the manager Is bound to pay
the company for all the spirits ha has received for Bale, whether sold according to
tba tariff in- still remaining aa stock on
hand. He la bound alto to seU hit stores as
he receives them; he may add no ingredients, or otherwise alter their quality.
He may not without special permission introduce musical entertainments. This does
away with all the lower-grade oonoert dans,
though good music ami entertainment can
be bad at tbe summer gardens and authorised music hall.. Should the manager break
any of tb* proviaioht under wblcb he (or
she (ii appointed, he .(or the) oan be dis
mined at onoe without compensation.   .
Accompanied by Mr. Rubanton, I visited
at least half of tb* publlo bout** of Gothenburg, and w* found them uniformly clean,
orderly, airy and decent. During tn* flrst
hour of our tour they wen filled with work-
lngmen enjoying their drams (almott indis-
peniabl* before dinner to th* Swede) and
such dinners at thoa* deeorlbed above. I
wat struck with tb* civility and attention
bestowed upon all customers by tha manager* and their not infrequently fatclnating
assistants. Without entering into th* cjnes-
tion a* to whether or not thi* tyttam could
be tuoosufully introduced into tb* United
Stat**, it mutt ba admitted that it has
worked most satlaftotorily in Scandinavia.
In torn* recent report* mad* by the governor* of oth*r provinces, tb* testimony la
unanimous tbat tb* Gothenburg system ha*
lessened drunkenness and been beneficial to
tha communes adopting it Iu Norway it
has been legally adopted, and torn* time ago
It* principles were adopted in tb* greater
number of tucb communal a* had tbe right
to do ta A committee of tb* Britith bouse
of lords, appointed to inquire into th* meant
of preventing th* increase of intemperance,
after examining various proposals, expressed themselves In favor of this system

Th* Right Hoa Joseph Chambtrlain, the
Radical leader, I* also a strong and able advocate of tbls system for Birmingham, and
I believe before-many years it will be on Its
trial in England.

The American Career of a Brigand  Waa
Wae tbe Terror of Sicily.
Tbe young ton of a famous Italian bandit
ba* met witb a very unromantic fate io New
Orleans. Giuseppe Esposito, many years ago,
waa the bold and buccossf ul leader of a band
of brigands in Italy, vliere bis many exploits
bad gained for bim a European reputation
and invested bis name with a terror to all
travelers in the mountains of Sicily.
To the qualities which have been ascribed
to the outlaw tn song and story, be added
those of cruelty and Woodthirttineas, and tb*
unlucky captive wbo fell into hi* clutches, if
not redeemed by a ransom, paid the penalty
of nl* misfortune with bis life. Tbe heartless Etposito pursued his career of robbery
and murder against his feUow countrymen
unchecked, but finally aroused the wrath of
John Bull, au act which bos always been hazardous in either an individual or a nation.
He seized an English traveler one day, and
after due notice and proper waiting the stock
of the bandit camp had not been Increased by
as much as a single piaster on account of th*
last adventuro. One of the prisoner's eari wai
then sliced off and forwarded to his friends,
and this in turn was followed by ite fellow
useful and ornamental appendage. But by
this time the British government bad been
notified, and such a demand mad* on tba
Italian authorities that Esposito'* gang was
quickly dispersed, and he wa* apprehended
and imprisoned. Escaping, he fled to America, anil from Mew Vork went to New Orleans. In the latter eity he shortly manifested his lofty contempt for honest pursuits
by becoming chief of a society of blackmailers, an occupation hardly as genteel a* tho
one ho hod foUowed in his native land, but
less dangerous.
It was not adventurous enough, though,
and before long be got to be captain of a
small coasting vessel, marrying in tbe meantime a pretty young girl of bis own race. A
reward was out for him, though, by the
Italian government, and in 1880 Detective
Hennessey, now tbe chief of police of New Or,
leans, arrested him. He waa tent back to
Italy, where be waa tried, twice sentenced to
be bung and finally sent to prison for life.
The wife was left In New Orleans, with an
infant son of Esposito'* Last week tbe applied to the mayor to have tbe boy, Joseph,
and a younger child pieced in an orphan aiy-
lum, at the could not support them, and it
was done. Should the news penetrate to the
Sicilian dungeon of Esposito, the reflection
that hit child will at least be comfortably
cared for will lighten a little bis dark and revengeful heart.—Louisville Courier-Journal.

Keeping Correct Time.
A simple method of keeping correct time
where access to standard time ia inconvenient
is thus explained: Select two fixed point* for
range of Observation. If a westerly "wind
can be chosen which faces any building anywhere more than twenty-five to thirty feet
distant, we have as good a port of observation
as we can desire. Drive a nail or stick a pin
into the window jamb; or, if anything mora
tubstantial I* wanted, fix * thin piece of
metal with a very small hoi* in it to tight
through, in any convenient place, to that you
can otnerve the time any iter tet* or sinks
below the roof of the adjacent building, or
whatever may be chosen as tbe more remote
sight Tben choose some weU denned star,
the brighter the better, and with your timepiece set right (to start with) observe the
time lt pastes the range of your sight*. The
exact time, as well also as the date of tbe observation, ihould be recorded, tben, to And
out at any subsequent timo how much your
watch has varied from correct time, oteerve
the mme star, and recollect tbat it let* just
S minute* and 55.00944 seconds earlier on any
given night than it did tha preceding night
Thut, if for our first observation wa* taken
some night wben the star set at 0 hour*, 15
minutes and S3 seconds, and at our aecond
ebnrvation, taken just one week later, lt set
at 8 hour*, 47- minutes and 53 seconds, we
would know that our watch bad kept correct
time. If it had set nt ti houri, 45 minutes and
53 seconds, we would know that our watch or
clock had lost two minute* daring the week.
And similarly for any other variation. If the
time at which it had tet bad been 8 hour*, 40
minute* and 53 seconds, we should see that
our watch had gained two minute*, and to
on. If tbe location of our sight* admit* of it
we should select a iter OU den, at nearly at
possible, from the pole star, ior Ite apparent
motion wUl be greater than that of one near
the pole, and tbe liability of error wUl be
diminished. If a suitable selection can bt
made the error need not be mora than three
or four seconds, and it will not be accumulative,—The Locomotive.

M. Bt»y, Returning Officer, has received the writ to hold a bye election to
fill the vacancy in thc Local House
canoed by the deati} of the Hon. R. Dunsmuir. Mr. Bray has appointed Friday,
the 14th inst., as the day of nomination
snd Friday, the 21st inst., as tbe day for
We understand on the vary best
authority that Mr. T. K. Foster ia not
likely to enter the lists as a candidate for
Parliamentary honors. Mr. Foster, who
has a ranche on the mainland, is not at
present in Nanaimo so we are unablo to
speak positively as to his ultimate decision, though he has intimated to his
friends that without any wish to be
nominated, yet if they insist upon it, lie
will consent to contest the vacant seat as
an Independent candidate. We ure
aware that Mr. Foster has a considerable
following, more especially, we believe, at
Wellington.
Dr. 'Walkem ia, we bear, also a candidate for tho coveted seat in the local
House, or at least that he has political
aspirations and is feeling the pulse of the
electors.
Mr. 0, 0. MeKenzie has expressed his
determination to once more contest Nnnaimo on tho same lines as before, viz.,
as an Opposition candidate to Ihe present
Government. If pluck and !ticl:-io-itire-
ness has anything to do with winning
elections, then Mr. McKenzie's seat
should be assured.
Mr' T. E. Peck (East Wellington) we
bave also heard mentioned as a starter,
though we arc unablo to speak of our own
knowledge as to whether tho report be
genuine or not.
Mr. Haslem, who was tho first to announce his candidature, is in our opinion,
as we said in our issue of yesterday, the
very man for the post. Upright, able,
and conscientious, he is at the samo time
a thorough man of business, and will, we
feel assured, on the event of his election,
soon make his murk felt, as he possesses
tbe temper, tact, and courtesy necessary
to insure political success.
Outlying districts have bten notified of
the days and d**et of nomination and

As a' role we are not usually surprised
at what we hear and see in these days of
utter Indifference to all things; but the
report that reached us lately from a very
lettable souwe, to tbe effect that during
the late hot weather a mermaid had been
seen in tho vicinity of Protection island
quit* took us -aback. Somehow the description . scarcely tallied with that of a
mermaid proper, go we think Imagination must nave played a somewhat prom-
lnentpart.

Urawd Jury-Report.
Nanaimo. B. C, June 6th.
To the Honorable Justice H. /". P. Crease:
We, the Grand Jury, have visited the
Hal and the hospital, both of which we
wand'in a very satisfactory condition.
We. would recommend that the water
frotn the main-Of the Nanaimo Water
Works be hud upon the premises of the
hospital for Sanitary purposes. Also
that owing .to the increase of population,
which haa consequently brought an increase of sickness and accidents, the
grant given bv the government for hospital purposes iB inadequate to meet tbe
present demands. We would therefore
urge upon the government the necessity
oi increasing the annual grant towards
tbe same. We also visited the nuisance
complained of, which has been somewhat abated with a further promise of
having everything objectionable removed. Thanking you kindly for the
very courteous manner In which you explained the duties devolving upon us as
a Grand Jury.

NANAIMO SPRING ASSIZES,
(Before Hon. H. P. P. Crease.)
His Lordship took his seat on tbe
Bench shortly after 10 a. m.
Regina v. Muzetto, charged with aggravated assault on one Dominick, at Wellington.
D. M. Eberts, Q. C, appeared for the
defence, and informed Jlis Lordship that
the prisoner wguld plead guilty if it
suited His Lordship's views.
His lordship allowed the plea to be
entered.
Tbe Counsel for thc defense said
that the prisoner had always borne a
good character and was industrious.
His Lordship said it would only be just
to allow Dominick some renuinoration
for his sufferings. *
Dominick expressed a wish to leave
the matter entirely in His Lordship's
hands.
Muzetto was sentenced to one month's
iinprieoumei.t without hard labor and to
pay $160 to Dominick.
Bacht, the Siwash convicted ot manslaughter, was then brought forward for-
sentence.
Before sentencing the prisoner, His
Lordship Baid that he wished to have him
examined, as lie understood that he was
not in a condition to stand any lengthy
confinement.
Dr. Eberts, colliery surgeonatWellington, examined the prisoner and reported
that be was suffering from cancer in the
stomach and also nnd several external
sores.
Taking into consideration the condition
of the prisoner, His Lordship said he
would sentence him to 2 years imprisonment, bb while in the penitentiary he
would receive good medical attendance,
and if it became apparent that the
prisoner waa under sentence of death
from a higher court he would be sent
home to his friends to die.
This ended the Spring Assizes, und
after thanking the jurymen, His Lordship adjourned the court.

Light   Grade   Wrapping-»»***'**r
Grocers' Paper Bags.
[Pittsburg Commercial-Gazette.]
''Everything which conies from an oli *«U
lias a use/' was at ono time the boastftl remark of a petroleum producer. The tciiy
mistake he made was that ht did not iunvnie
everything used about an oil welL One of
tbe most useful, when it seems useless, is the
maniila rope usei in the borin* of the welL
This is generally a cable three inches in diameter. Its strength is groat, .but on account of tbe immonsa weight of the bits,
bars, and jars used, the cuble is soon worn
out and laid aside. It is always full of
water, aud by lying long exposed it is completely worthless. At this period a Pittsburg dealer in old rope puts in an appearance. Although tho cable is worthless to
the driller, it has a value of from 1 to IK
cents per pound to iho junk-dealer. This
doalor is cither an agent for some firm
which has its headquarters in Pittsburg or
one of the oil town-*.'nr is in business for
himself.
The rope i ■; hauled away, balod, and then
become* an article of commerce. Ite ii*se is
now to form the basis of the pulp from
which U made the heavy maniila papor used
in making flour-saekH, or tho heavier grades
of wrnppimr-pnpsr. For tbe-=o Hies the cablo
must be wh;\t the paper men call clean,
which mean- that the rope must bo clear of
oil. The part of tho rope which [i down
nearest tho kit is always more or le*-**! saturated, and when tho oil fills the hoio tho rope
always becomes groisy. After tho reception of tho baled cable at tho piipor-mill tho
first part of the transforming process i*» to
clean, as much as possible, the oil away
from the rope, This (a done by steam, although the rope cleaned is never of such a
gond quality as that which has nover been
in the oil. As it has not tho strength uoces-
sary the pulp is mixed with wood, and the
paper made from it is used for lighter
grades of wrapping paper and the small
bags used by grocers. The method of manufacture is the same as that used in "making
up" tbo straw or wood. The stock is first
softened by means of steam and lime. It is
then taken to tbo grinders and from them to
the paper machine. Tbe clean maniila cable
is an article much sought for, and has even
become an article of export.
Not only is the oil-well drillers' refuse
lines used, but a trade is carried on In tbe
maniila rop3 usel by rlvermen. The headquarters of the trade are in New York,
from which place the baled goods aro distributed all over the world. A well-known
dealer was interrogated concerning the fiizs
of tho trade. "You can get Rome idea of
the sfee of tho business from the fact that
two tons of tbo clean rope will make one
ton of heavy paper. In our mill, when
running full, wo use six tons of stock per
day. Ordinarily clean rope is quoted a $8
per 100. Now, however, in sympathy
with everything else it is down to |3 03.
The greasy rope Is worth but about ono-
half as much as tbo clean, aB ft Is impossible
to ever mako as gool paper, even when
mixed with higher-priced stock. The principal supply comes from the deserted oil
towns of northwestern Pennsylvania. The
usefulness of the cablo is passed, and it is
bought cheap by the doalers, who bale it
and ship lt in tons."
And thus it is that thousands of yards of
dirty, greasy rope that smell so loudly at
tbo petroleum derricks of upper Pennsylvania, and which have unloosened the geysers of oil for tho w. rld's illumination, aro
at last transformed into tho neat little papor bag in which sugar, tea, coffee and flour
are brought to tho breakfast-tablo, oi
wrapped about tin packagoB of dry goods
carried from overy store in Pittsburg.
