country. He had never had any idea of
resorting to illegal means. In his testimony throughout he denied all knowledge of any manifestos counselling
violence, bul it was no part of bis duty
lo exclude any one from the league on
account of their antecedents. On the
contrary, he.wanted to include all Irishmen.

SUNDA Y  NEWSPAPERS.
A oreat deal has lieen said recently by
1,0th tbe pulpit and the press of this
province concerning Sunday newspapers.
The clergy were mostly unanimous in the
condemnation oi the Sunday newspaper,
contending as they did that the issuing
ofa paper on that day was a violation of
the Sabbath, forgetting, however, or being ignorant of the fact, that most of the
work, literary or mechanical was done on
Saturday and Sunday evenings, and thnt
most of the wink done on Monday morn-
lag papers, was of necessity done on Sunday and Sunday evening. The growth
of the Sunday newspaper especially in
tbe United States during the last fifteen
years has been phenomenal, and il is
said that the members of all the great religious communions, are as attentive
readers of the Sunday newspaper as arc
the people who are not under the direction of any church. In fact it is slated
that there is nn other body of professional men among whom Sunday papers has
a larger proportionate circulation than
among the clergy themselves. As men
of education interested In following tho
currents of popular thought, and the
course of contemporary history, they
must read that paper In which they also
get a variety and a quality of literary
reading obtainable, in no other periodical
and nowhere else.
They find also from personal experience
that it is of powerful assistance to the
Church and the school in making the day
of rest of moral and Intellectual profit to
the people. And so in thc neighboring
republic the Sunday newspaper has become a distinct and prominent featttro,
and it is exercising a profound influence
on the education of the people. As the
Sunday paper is the most extensively
and thoroughly read, it of course has become the most valuable for the advertiser,
It goes to its readers, on the day of rest,
when they have leisure to study carefully
all its columns ami the greater the merits
of its general contents the more valuable
is its advertising space. For a newspaper without advertisements, no matter
bow good it may be in other respects does
not represent modern civilization, neither
does it meet its wants. Tbe Sunday
paper has, therefore, became a liecsssity
of'the age, and although, occasionally
individuals and societies rise up to stay its
progress, their efforts, must, before the
popular demand, necessarily prove in
vain.  	
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
The prospects arc that less money will
go into the treasuries of United States
railroads and more into those of their
Canadian competitors in the tourist business than usual. The attractions of our
Atlantic, and especially the Pacific coasts,
aud the wonders of our westcrnland are
beginning to be noised abroad. There is
an increasing desire to visit the National
Park and the Rockies. The variety of
climate and the changes of scenery to be
found in Canada arc nowhere surpassed.
The places beat worth seeing arc easily
reached, and the expense is rather less
than involved in equally attractive trips
south of the line.
The great-rush of people for Oklahoma
is unprecedented in the history of the
United States, but it does not necessarily
indicate that land available for settlement purposes is getting bo very scarce
in Uncle Sam's domain. It rather indicates the defiire ot tlie average person for
a "good thing," and his eagerness to become the possessor of the choicest morsels. There arc Btill large tracts of land
held by Indians to be opened sooner or
later to settlement, nnd the Oklahoma
movement will doubtless hasten action
in Congress lo limit the Indian dominion.
After all the land has been taken up in the
republic we have many millions of acres
in Canada that will afford anchorage
room for a multitude of boomers, 88 good
or better land, too, than can be found in
Oklahoma or the West, while thc climate
is in every respect superior.
of the tower that its dimensional can be
realized, and even then the eye hits difli-
etilty in taking in the immensity oi its
proportions. A building of ordinary size
could easily be placed under each of. the
gigantic archways which form the first
stage of the ascent.
rl
The last ilem of news from the laboratory, says an exchange, is that the deadliest of bacteria live and multiply on the
bank notes that we handle. Probably
there is not a viler article lhat we ever
touch than a bank note. Curried in lhc
pockets of the most leprous and loathsome, it. passes through the pocket of the
refined. We would not think of taking a
pocket handkerchief that luul made any
such round without washing or fumigating. We could not be induced to put on
the shirt of a tramp, but the money of
the diseased and contaminating goes
without a thought into our inner pockets. What disease we hug we do not
think or care.
As far ns our own bank notes are con-
corned wo wanl lo say right here we will
take all that aro tendered, "bacteria" and
all. ll might ho unnecessary to rcrmak
that very few of tbem come our way.

There were military parades and reviews,

CAbEY'S   TABLE    D'HOTE.
Oh, them days on lied Hon mountain wiien Uie
ddee imi fair 'nd bloc,
When tho money flowed li!,e likker'ad the folks
WUf brave 'nd true!
When the nights wuz crisp and balmy, 'nd the
camp wuz all astir
With the joints all throwed wide open "nd no sheriff
to demur I
Oh, them Mites on lied Boss mountain in tbe
Rookies fur away—
Tlierc'n no Rich place nor times like them as I kin
Hnd today!
\Vliat though the camp has basted ?  I seem to seo
it still,
A-lying, like it loved it, on that bis 'nd warty hill;
And I reel a sort of yearnm' 'ml a sholdn1 In my
throat
When I think of RMHojs mountain *ndof Casey'B
tabble dutel
This Casey wuz an Irishman—you'd know it by
his name
And by the facial reatuiv.snppertainin' to the same.
1 leAl fired In many plaoQS 'nd had douoathousand
tiling,
From tho noble art of acttn1 to the work of deaUn'
kings;
Hut, somehow, hadn't caught on—bo, drlftln' with
tho rest,
Ho drifted for a fortune to tho undeveloped west,
And I"' come to I ted I toss mountain when the little
camp wns new,
When the money flowed li!<o llkker 'nd tho folks
wuz brave 'nd true;
And, bat in' boon a Stewart on a Mississippi boat,
Ue opened upacoffy 'nd ho run a tabble dotol
Thu bar WUS long'ml rangoy, with a mirror ou tlio
sbelf-
'Nda pistol. SO that Casey, when required, could
helu himself;
Down'liSdauentli thero wuz a row of bottled beer
'.Olivine,
•Nd a i-»*?of l.urbon Whisky of tho run of *H>;
Upon tho wails wuz picture* of bosses 'nd of
girls—
Not much on dress, perhaps, but strong on records 'nd on curls I
Tho which bad been Identified with Casey Iu tho
past—
Tho bosses 'nd tho girls, 1 mean—nnd both wuz
mighty fasti
But all these Hue attractions wuz of precious littlo
note
By the side of what was offered at Casey's tahblo
dotol
A tabblo doto Is different from ordeiiu' aller cart;
In onocasoyou git ull there is—In t'other, only
portl
Antl Casey's tahblo doto began In French—aa all
beg iu-
Aml Casey's ended with tbe same, which la to say
with "vln;"
But iu between WUS every kind of reptile, bird 'nd
1 least,
Tlio same liko you can git in high toned restau*
raws down oastl
'Nd windin' up wuz cake or pie, with coffee demy
toss,
Or, someiimes, floating Ireland lu a BOOthln1 kind
of sass
That left a sort of pleasant tleklln' In a feller's
throat,
'Nd made him hanker after moro of Casey's tabblo dote I
The very recollection of them puddlu's *nd them
pics
Brings a yearnbV to my buszum 'nd tbo water to
my eyes;
'Nd seeres liko eookiu' nowadays ain't what It
us ii to bo
In camp on Rod Iloss mountain In that year of 'C3;
But may bo It Is better, and may bo I'm to blame—
I'd liko to bo n livin'lu the mountains jest tho
same—

which I read in a California paper that will
illustrate this." Tho story ran something as
follows: "A few days since a stranger from
the unconverted wilds of tho east, where
mugwumpery was born und tenderfoot attain
thou* highest state of sensitiveness, came out
to Pasadena to visit a friend. While walking
along Fair Oaks avenue ono day ho said to
his friend:
"'There goes a man I met at I*a Junta,'
giving tbo 'J' its natural sound.
" 'You mean Ba Hunt;.,.' replied his friend.
'That Is a Spanish uuino, and in that language "J" takes tho sound of "IL"'
"'Is that so? Well, 1 must try to catch onto that' After strolling along a short distance further ho asked:
" 'Where are tho eaves of I*a Jolla, which
I seo so much ubout In tbo papers/
" 'You should Bay Ba Hoy a caves. They
aro about threo miles Lhishidoof San Diego.'
" 'Darn tho language, it breaks mo all up.
That's a pretty nice house over thoro—that's
Armijo's house, Isn't itf' And again he gavo
tho 'J' its proper pronunoiation.
" *You mean tho Armoho house Yes; it's
a good ono, too.'
" 'Damsicha way of abusing tho English
alphabet, 1 reckon, then, that must Imi
Hovcuo's store which I stopped at in !.«>:■
Angeles?'
" 'No, that is not a Spanish name. I think
it Is French. However, It is pronounced as
spelled, Joveno.'
" 'Well, how in Santa Fo Is u fellow going
to tell what is Spanish and what isn't? Why
couldn't they build their lauguagu on tbo
original plun?'
" 'Oh, you'll soon catch it. You will llnd
it safest to give tho Spanish pronunciation to
nearly everything here.'
"An hour later ho sat down at the tablo of
tho elegantly furnished Carlton hotel, and,
after scanning tho bill of fare, the stranger
said to tbo waiter:
" 'You may bring me u nice buicy piece of
roast beef, somo pig's howl with caper sauce,
§oino fricasseed hack rabbit, some pork with
apple belly, some boiled potatoes with currant ja—I mean currant ham, and, ah,
some'	
"At this point the waiter swooned and tbe
guests In tbo room lot out n roar of laughter
that gavo the chandeliers thu chills and fever.
This made tho stranger mad, and ho leaped
to his feet like a crazy man, took oil' bis coil
and threw it down on tho floor, stamped on
it and howled:
" 'You fellows nro trying to play mo for a
suckor, but, by tho eternal,, you have struck
tho wrong snag. I am a disguised cyclone
from IlHnoy and can licit tbo wholo crowd.
Spanish? I can sling more Spanish in a holy
minute than Montezuma could iu a whole
year. Let somo idiot pull off his hacket and
hump Into mo, aud tin-lirst time I hit him
ho will think ho bus tho hinihums. Spanish)

mo for a sucker, hut you musii't budge a man
by his looks, whoop I go round the hublloe.
Somebody come out anil face me. Let some
libncrow galoot eouio to tlio front and criticise my Spanish hnrgon.'
"His friends got bold of bim and took bim
from tho room, and as be went through tlio
door ho remarked:
" '1 can t alio a hoke, but it makes ino mad
for a lot of ImckasHGS to play mo for a
greeny.' "—Cleveland Beuikr.

I never believed that story about tho lltfle

of castor oil when he did not need it merely becauso sho was in tlio habit of giving him five
cents every timo he took a dose, and he
wanted five cents to buy gum. Cut yesterday

over bo has to undergo tho painful operation
of having a splinter extracted, catno running
to his sister with several slivers. After she
had pulled thorn out and administered a few

spoke up and asked: " Were those Ave centers!'1
"No," said tho sister, "they wero only two

We were informed that tin- liiifll Wellington mine was not working yesterday
owing to some slight mishap in ihe machinery. This is very unfortunate as the
East Wellington Company has at present
two ships waiting to loud eoal for San

Defective   Crossing.
Some time ago the Cily Council ut one
of their meetings, called attention to a
defective crossing mi Commercial street,
opposite Skinner sheet. The old crossing is there yet and is one that  is  very
much used, and  whilt t  wishing to
counsel reckless expenditure, on the part
of the Corporation we think that this
public convenience might  ho fixed up.

Ii there is one branch of business that
is more pertinaciously carried on  Hum
another in this cily it is that of the Salvation army. Their object is good, hut
the noise they sometimes make is
louil, extremely loud, and not at all
euphonious ; bnt perhaps it drati .
The streets are becoming dustier each
day, and 1 would like to know if there is
to be any provision made by ,:n>it""J;i for
allaying the clouds of dusl which are set
in motion by every breath nf wind and
every passing team.
Tin-drive-'in and about Nanaimo are
especially beautiful at tills season of the

roads wero a little less rough— is one of
tin- most beautiful, while ibe scenery to
be found after arriving there is unsurpassed, with trout lisliing that would
warm the heart of any disciple of old

trout to be bad there. 1 luive seen them

When pain and anguish wring lhc law a  ministering angel thou."
A case in the Police Court yosterdny,
Showed that the above lines were applicable to man, as well as woman. The
man in this ease wanted lo be thc"iiiiiii-:-
tering angel," but the woman, would
have none of it. It was a pathetic scene,
bul one upon which 1 cannot dwell niul
furthermore there are some scenes—
domestic and otherwise—over which the
veil of charity bad better be drawn.
There is 11 subject, which however painful it may he lo me and unpleasant to
others, I must point out. It IS the profanity and obscenity which are too often
heard on the streets and in public places.
And alas those indulging in ibis profanity are young lads. 1 am satisfied too
thai iheir parents in most casoB
know nothing of their evil
habits and worse practices. Parents
eaniiol possibly know  all   of  Iheir  chil-
Ii'ou'b actions when away from parental
control,   but it does strike mo thai a
irieler vigilance often would be productive of good. Is there no by-law prohibiting profanity on tbe public streets?
It does nol sound pleasantly In the ears
of our wive?, mothers and sisters. Although   1   am  old and tough, and thick-
kinned, and devilish, no doubt, I don't
like to have the pure minds of those who
are now innocent defiled by puoh sounds
are often heard.

that everyone, without exception receives

sensation in the throat anil if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to thc lungs
producing Consumption and tn the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangerous, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause

The different species were talked of,
among them the Jersey kind, of which
il is said that a "good many of them
weigh a pound." and that Ihey "climb
up trees and bar];." Their length of lite
and their serpent-like bile, and other
qualities also received attention, when

so violent and so sudden as to nttrnct the attention of tho whole company,
Everything was done to divert her mind
