LONDON  LETTER.
London. April 29.-Ex-Mayor Abrnm S.
Hewitt, of New York is the guest of the
Liberal Unionist club. He will be entertained at a banquet by Karl Derby on
May the 7th. The forthcoming banquet
to ex-Mayor Hewitt of New Vork, ou
which occasion that doughty reformer,
will be the guest of the Liberal Unionists,
Was engineered by the Irish Loyal an.l
Patriolie Union. In sending advance
notices of the banquet to the press the
promoters of the entertainment make especial reference to the refusal of Mr.
Hewitt to permit the Irish Hug to fly
from the City Hall , but are not strictly
accurate in detail since they credit the
then mayor of New Vork with having indignantly refused lo have the "Fenian
flag" displayed over lhc principal public
buildings.
The 41st anniversary of the birth of
King Otto, the demented monarch of Bavaria, was celebrated at Munich on Saturday by a popular display of tings and
other emblems. Prince Regent Luit-
pold and his Ministers attended the pontifical high mass iu honor of the occasion.
The Austrian (invernment bus served
a notice upon the tramway coinpanys
that their lines and other properly will
be sequestrated unless the reforms agreed
to hy them iii their settlement with their
employes shall be completed by May
15th. All of the oltl directors of tlie
company have resigned. In consequence
of the success of the Vienna tramway
strikers the London labor agitators are
urging English cur drivers to formulate
demands upon their employes and organize a general strike  to enforce them.
Henri Kochel'ort's old time facility for
getting himself into hoi water is in nowise impaired by his years. JL I'ilotell, Ihe French artist residing iu London, whose caricature of General Bou-
langer was insultingly criticized bv Rochefort about two months ago, threatens
to thrash him at lirst appearance. Piloted challenged Rochefort at the time to
light a duel, but the latter still more insultingly decided not to meet liim. Sev-
etal officers of the guards too are on the
alert to catch Rochefort nntl physically
resent ids insults to the urmv and the
Queen. Upon being informed of
his son's suicide Rocheforte wept
and afterwards sank upon his knees
antl prayed. He luts taken a house in
Loqdon for six ni'i/lirtiB. His horses and
carriages have already arrived.
THU   SAMOAN   CONFERENCE.
Berlin, April 20.—In the Samoan conference lo-duy Count Herbert Bismarck,
speaking in French, disavowed, on Ire-
hall' of Germany, any idea of aggrandizement inconsistent with existing treaties.
Sir Edward Malet ami Mr. Kasson followed in a similar strain, hinting that it
was the hope of America that the differences would be settletl on a basis which
would preserve the autonomy of the isl-
lantls. Upon a proposal of Mr. Kasson, it
was agreed to conduct the proceedings of
the conference ill English. Count Bismarck has issued invitations to the members of the conference to dine with him
on Friday. The Emperor received a
personal report of to-day's sitting, but al.
the next meet ing he will receive the re-
Sort of   n   siib-coniniilt.ee.    All   of  the
•'legates  appeared  to be satisfied with
to-day's proceedings.

"THE FIRST DAY OF THE WEEK.,"
Sermon by Rev. J. B. Good, of St. Paul's
Church on Bundav Evening.
The Rev. J. B. Good preached a very
eloquent sermon on Sunday night, his
subject being "Tlie First day of the Week
from a Church of England standpoint."
In tbe lirst place the preacher glanced ut
the origin uf the day we now observe us
our Sabbath. He pointed out thut Christ
rose from the deatl und appeared before
Hi,-disciples on the first day; also that
the disciples used to meet together on the
first day of the week and put together
what they bad collected during the week.
And he showed that just us the Jews observed tbe seventh tluy to commemorate
their deliverance from bondage, so was
the hrst day observed by the early
Christians to commemorate their deliva
crancc from sin and death. Th*
Church would not have taken
the first day in the wcuk us
their day of rest uud religious observance
if it had not lieen founded on a confirmed fact. One might just as well try to
prove that the fourth of July, that is observed as a day of rejoicing in the neijps-
boriug states was started on a Action, at
to pretend to doubt that the rtirrsssiii
of the lirst day of the week was not con
firmed by the action alt . .
have the testimony of the heuthen Pliny,
who lived about the second century, who
said he did his best to discover why u
class called Christians met together on a
certain day in the week. He even tried
torture with no avail. They met for the
observance of a symbol, evidently referring to the Holy Sacrament.
Jesus had frequently to reprove ths
Jews regarding the manner in which
they kept the Sabbath saying, "is not the
Sabbath made for man not man for the
Sabbath?"
The preacher called to mind the rigid
manner in which the Puritans enforced
the observance of the Sabbath.
Very few had read the old
Blue laws of Massachusetts tbat in
their rigidity simply ground the people down to a hard and fast set
of rules for keeping the Lord's day, yet
no scribe or Pharisee would have been
so exacting.
In contrast to this tbe Sabbath of our
church is a day of rest, enjoyment and
rational worship. He wished that soma
of the simple rules of the old Puritan
Church could be revived when thei. gave
tlie earlier and best hours of tbe Sabbath
to God's service. If one Would come to
God's house in this spirit, let him who
wished to strengthen his arms at the oar
also strengthen his lungs singing
the praises of the .Lord. He did
not think that the Deity would object to any healthful exercise an
the Lord's day if the same person attended to his service and praise.
The Press had taken an active part in
pointing out some moral blemishes in this
town, and he hoped that in future the
people would say, "not these things
ought not to be, but rather they shall
not be." He did not think it right that
every bar and saloon should be
open and that people going to service
should see drunken Bacchanalians hobnobbing nntl hear the clink of balls iu
these resorts. Last year the representatives of the various churches in this town
hud signed a petition praying that ths
bars in town might lie closed on the Sabbath, hut it had failed ae the law allowed
saloons a short way out of the city to remain open, und it was contended that the
men would only drive out to them. He
had no more objection to a well conducted hotel than a grocery store, hut wished
them closed on the Sabbath.
Many young men had been treated by
their parents untl guardians in the old
Puritaiiticid way of observing the Sabbath and when they obtained their freedom they broke loose from the Church
altogether. The idea of the Church of
England was to make the Sabbath a
bright enjoyable day of rest and religious
service.

A WONDERFUL LAIE.
ETbe "Pitch Lake of Trinidad-" as it is
termed, is a wonderful and singular natural formation situated at a place called
La Brea, about sixteen or twenty miles
from Port of Spain, tlie capital of tbe island, its urea is between one and t»o
hundred acres—that is to sav the lake
itself; but the same formation extends
down to the seashore, and even for some
distance umler the sea. The substance
Itself is a hard, black, shiny pitch; this
is the appearance of that along the road
to the hike, which is aliout a mile from
the shore; but that found in the lake—in
some parte of it—is quite soft, and almost
liquid. The most singular thins about
this lake is that all attempts hitherto
made to discover the depth of this formation have been futile, anil that, too from
natural causes. Men are engaged in mining the pitehwork on tbe surface of the
lake, which is comparatively bard, except
in some places, with pickaxes and spades,
chopping out the solid pitch in good-
sized pieces; but the elasticity and expansibility of this substance is so great
that even when they have dug a pit te
the depth of fonr or five feet, and perhaps six feet long by five feet wide, in tb*
course of n day they will find, on returning to their work in the morning, the
walls of this hole approximating so closely as to be almost touching each other,
and if left for four or five hours longer,
there is not to lie seen the slightest trace
of where the night before waa a yawning
pit in the surface, and thus no sensible
diminution is visible in the quantity existing in the lake, even with the large
amount annually removed for shipment
to foreign porta. Very considerable
quantities of this pitch are annually
exported to England;, in vessels chartered for the purpose, from which oil is refined.
"Are- yon the girl who was to come to
our house as a nurse?" asked a fashton-
| able lady of the healthy-looking girl who
j had just entered the room. "I am,
ma'am." "I have examined your references, and I find them satisfactory.
Yon may begin next week." "But, if
ye plaze, ma'am, I'd like to ask you wan
question." "What is it?" "Is it a baby
! or a poog dog that I'm to look afther?" 2

favorably with that of tbe line magazines
in delicacy of finish and perfection of detail. The art of newspaper illustration
hae become a great department of lalor
which gives profitable employment to
thousands of men ami women and adds
largely to the enjoyment of the newspaper reader.
The Legislature of Michigan has passed
the Jackson cigarette bill, which prohibits the manufacture, sale, keeping for
sale, or giving away of any cigarettes or
imitation thereof, composed in whole or
in pari of tobacco, or any substance in
the form of cigarettes containing narcotic
elements, or any rice paper, or any paper
designed for cigarette paper.
An exchange speaking on the pros and
cons nl the Immigration question says
that it seems a little surprising that the
advantages of Canada as a residence unpeople of small fixed incomes have never
been .'airly presented. In lhc old country
there is a very large class of people in receipt ol pensions, anniiilies or dividends
irom investments, whose lives are a constant and wearing struggle to keep up
appearances and make ends meet. They
are committed by family traditions or old
associations to a social position for which
their sleptier means are inadequate. They
belong it may be to a circle in which the
scale of expenditure is lavish and they
must keep up year after year the attempt
to vie with those of longer purges or run
the risk of losing caste. Modern fiction
abounds in descriptions of the Btraits to
which reduced gentlefolks nf this sort are
put in the vain attempt to hold their
position in a society where—
Ev.ry Joof is barred with gold, and "1'="* lml 1° Bo1'
den keys,
and the nouveaux riches show but little
consideration for culture and intelligence
if unaccompanied by a good bank account.
By taking up their abode in Canada many
a family now struggling on the ragged
edge ol a shabby gentility in England
would free themselves at one bound from
a false position, antl find themselves immensely bettered, socially antl pecuniarily
by the change.
Wealth and poverty are comparative:
and an amount which is genteel starvation to the resident of the West End oi
London', obliged by the exigencies of his
position to keep up n style corresponding
to the social ideals of the locality, would
mean a comfortable independence in a
Canadian city. Moreover, Instead of being snubbed and despised or at. best merely tolerated by thoir circle of acquaintances, this class of immigrants would lit
welcome additions to society here. By
all means the attention of the Inrge number of middle-class people, whose position
grows continually more Intolerable as tlie
expense of living increases, should be directed to Canada as'a place of residence
where they can enjoy many social antl
iutellectilal advantages without the disabilities attendant on limited means in
Britain.    .   .
It seems funny that a big city like
New York, with suburban cities plrnost
equal to it in population, could actually
be found unable to afford sleeping accommodation to visitors. But this eventuality
is feared by the New York Herald,
which says thai already the accommodation i- well taxed, and that when the
centennial attraction begins it fears that
many of the visitors will be obliged to
walk the streets at night unable to Hnd
lieds.

A    GOOD    EXAMPLE.
The rage forKping everything |Engllsh,
which has for somo years prevailed in
American society, hap been unsparingly
denounced anil ridiculed. "Anglomania"
has become ajerm of reproach, with the
American presB, which has vainly tried
to write down the movement. Omnipotent in almost-all other directions, the
pen is well—high powerless, in dealing
with the cap ices of fashion, anil Anglicizing tendencies have run Iheir course in
spite of tears anil laughter and patriotic
exhortations. . Is it not possible that the
censure' has been a good deal too indis-
iliscriminate. To condemn a fashion,
merelyIbpcajise it is English, is just as
foolish as to adopt it for no bet'or reason.
Anglomonia has not been] altogether an
unmixed evil. Some costumes anil observances not'adopted to this continent
may have been Imported, bill they do
little harm after all, and on the other
hand, the physical results of the movement have- been distinctly beneficial.
Thousands of languid and pale American belles, who never thought of walking
where they could possibly ride, and who
would take a street car to go u few hundred yards, now daily hike pedestrian
exercise... Walking is "so English you
know,", and that is quite enough to bring
walking lor health and pleasure to
fashion.
The same holds true as regards many
outdoor sports and amusements, which
the Anglomominc movement has brought
into popularity. American society is all
the better! and healthier (or thus imitating the English in the Important matter
of pliysical-cnltnri-, 'nnnerly too much
neglected; uud theenuhlle delicate nnd
nervous American young lady bids fair lo
become as rohiiBtand red-cheeked as her
British • exemplar. Pedestrian exercise
might weir be cultivated by lioth sexes
in Canada to a far greater extent than it
is. The-ability to walk a long distance
is almost universal in England, but hert
few Canadians, there are, comparatively
speaking',' who would not regard
tramp of o^lozen or fifteen miles iichie
ment.
EDJTORIAL   NOTES.
One ol'the roost interesting things in
modern journalism has lieen the development otillustration. Almost the youngest of newspaper readers eon temember
when sueVa thing ns a picture in a daily
■aper was unknown. Now there nre fow
papers that do not use illustrations more
or less. It has been the custom to ridicule uewspaper pictures and to bewail
anyone's fortune whose likeness appeared
in that form, and for several years the
ridicule was deserved. But it is not the
case now. The great demand for newspaper illustration has attracted so many
capable men and women Into that line
of work and the processes ol doing excellent and rapid work have been en multiplied and perfected, that it is surprising the quality of illustration that is now
turned out.   Some of it compares very

John Aspluwall Talks In a Very   Familiar
Way About   Him.
John Aspluwall, of Barrytown, N. Y., delivered a lecture at the Cooper Instltuto ou
tho littlo busy bee, Its anatomy and physiology, and Illustrated hid remarks by stero-
optlcon viewB, showing the Insert and It3
workings In all their details.
While in its physical make up tho be© is in
many respects the Opposite of man in his habits and tricks, ho very much resembles tlio
lord of creation, and Were bees to bo transformed Into men some would undoubtedly go
into tho pollco force or in tlio board of alder
men, while t here would Lo not a few successors
to Jako Sharp and to tbo inexperienced young
toughs who get clubbed by tho polico and are
then sent up to tho penitentiary for dishonesty ami general "ansa.'' Tho occupation:-; of
walking delegate and dudo mashers are also
found in apiarian society.
The littlo bee, that is, tho worker, is a
h*»rny sldnned child ul' toil. Ho is incased In
rings and shields of smooth horn to shield
liim against attacks of his own species, and
ho toils as long as there is light. Ho has not
got backbono liko a man or a mule, but in
stead ho has a littlo sting that serves nil pur
pose just as well, ami thus manages to maintain his rights. Between his tongue and
sting there Ufl complicated mechanism that
is of great use to tbo farmer and to nature.
Aside from the honey that he distills, and
which ia worth thousands of dollars annually
to tho farmer and to commerce, his habit of
poking his head Into (lowers and covering it
wiili pollen, which ho brushes ofT in other
(lowers, renders him a benefactor to nature
in fertilizing (lowers. Before tho advent of
the beo lu Australia it waa impossiblo to gel
any seeds of red clover there, Of course, his
process of making honey might not suit the
most fastidious tasto, for honey is partially
digested cano sugar, made so by tho aid of
boo saliva, but as tho beo is a perfectly clean
littlo animal that revels in nectar nil day
long, these littlo Irrogularitles must bo over
loofted. Besides, ho uses a different mouth
for tho honey.
Tho beo is a good flyer, but as bis wings are
smaller in proportion to his body than are
llioso of tho eaglo to tho king of birds, he
has to ilap them moro frequently, so ho Haps
away at tho rate of 440 flaps to the minute.
Ho has no lungs, but a system of tiny air
tubes extend through all parts of the body,
aud these he packs with air when ho wants
to fly. Neither has ho a heart, but a dorsal
vessel that pumps tlio blood to the head
The head, as magnified on tho scroon, is not a
beautiful object, and as it is not tho center of
tho nervous system ho would not miss It very
much if cut of! if it wero not for tho eyes,
two of which havo 4,000 lenses each to see the
honey flowers afar off, mid two others to
assist in doing tho inipro^opal work fn the
hive.
Tho entrances to tho hi vo aro very carefully guarded by sentinels, nnd every bee nn
arriving at tho door is challenged by them
with their nntemms. If ho can glvo the
countersign ho fa admitted into tho sanctuary,
but if ho cannot he Is In danger, for bees aro
vevy nervous insects, and draw stings on tho
slightest provocation. The applicant must
bo n thief, and old thieves are detected by experienced sentinels, hut the form of challenging must be gone through first.
The old thief bee Is fat and sloek and shining and very suave If caught by sentinels,
ho will at once try to make a deal and offer
tho policemen some sugar, and while thoy are
eating it ho oil her slips in aud fills up at tho
cells or ho retreats and tries another hive. If
thoBentlnelsare Incorruptible, tho thief humps
himself, draws his horny shields tight around
him so that the stings of the policemen may
not penetrate and runa A young thief
stands up to fight and gets clubbed. He
learns by experience.
Tho queen bee has not got such a very easy
time. She Iiils plenty to cat and eats it, mid
flics very little; but ns sho has to lay all tho
eggs of the colony, and often lays moro than
her weight of eggs In oho day, tho bees bo-
grudge hor nothing, but let hor have hor own
way everywhere.
Tho drone is tho dudo and walking delegate
of tho hive. Ho is not very numerous, how-
over. Ho is fat and spends his thno eating
honey, flirting with tho girls and tho queen,
then takes a quiet nap in tho sun. When his
charms no longer please ho is driven out, and
if ho cannot got a berth in another hivo ho
starves. Tho little worker, however, according to tho lecturer, dons not. faro much better.
Sho lives for about six weeks, whon sho becomes feeble, her wings got torn and fringed,
aad sho lies down to dio in tho field, refusing
to return to tho hivo and become a burden
on tho colony.—Now York Times.
Remove tho Tags.
A man who patronizes a ready mado clothing store for his clothes eauuot bo too careful
about removing tho numerous tags which
adorn tho stock piled on tho counters. This
warning is not given without reason. It is
suggested by tho experience of ono James
Hitchcock, who underwent a fearful ordeal
in this direction. Ho tells it on himself, too.
Years ago, when Professor Martlne ran tho
hotel at Riverside and was attempting to revive its popularity by hypodermic injections
of Saturday night hops, Mr. Hitchcock wns
invited to participate iu ono of these social
revels. His wardrobe was complete with tho
exception of a white vest—then on regie.
Well, ho went toa retail houso and purchased
tho desired white waistcoat. He took it homo
and plucked oil all tho various tags—that is,
ho thought ho did. Ho attended tho party
with his wife, and all wont well until ho
mingled In tho excitement of the lancers.
Then ho throw open his Prince Albert and
lout himself to tho abandon of tho dance.
Whilo ho was parading about at the direction
of tho caller ho noticed that several peoplo In
tho sot began to snicker, but ho paid no attention to tho merriment. When tho caller
finally cried: "All waltz—seats 1" ho disposed
of his partner and his wife grabbed him at
once. 8ho took him aside and pointed out
the cause of tho merriment in his set. It was
sowed on to tho vest just abaft tho watch
pocket. It waB of brilliant pink cardboard,
and it readi "Short aud fat; 43 Inches." Mr.
Hitchcock aud tho retail clothing salesman
who sold him tho whito vest have never since
spoken as thoy havo passed by.—Chicago
Herald.
The li ro nro.
Tho bronco is a wild or unbroken horse, i
havo been told by old Callfornlans that
"bronco" is a Spanish word, moaning wild,
and that ono always said bronco horse when
speaking of unbroken horses years ago; but
now, when ono says ho is riding or driving n
bronco, it Is understood that ho means a wild
or only partly broken horse. As a saddlo
animal tho bronco often causes moro excitement than a dog fight would. If he is a bad
"buckor" he becomes an infernal machine,
made with ball joints and steel springs run
by electricity. Ho draws himself up so that
ho looks liko a bamboo easel with a saddlo extension, and then spreads himself liko u
plumber at a summer watering puree. "He
graces tho wostorn landscape," as has been
remarked by tourists, all right enough, but
his "wonderful picturesquoness"—well, ho
doesn't always havo it with him. Still, if a
bronco gets away with a saddlo on, aud bucks
and runs until tho saddlo is worked back on
to bis haunches, he may look as picturesquo
as a woman bustle-ing along after a car,—

The captain of the steamer Rainbow
informed us lust night that he towed the
disabled steamer Amelia from Chemainus
to Victoria. The trip occupied from Saturday night till Sunday morning. He
«aid the reports about the damage were
not at all exaggerated, as the machinery
was totally smashed, and the boat would
be under "repairs for some time.

The great panoramic show which is
to be given by the Millar Brothers tonight in tbe Institute Hall, is spoken of
very highly, not only by the Victoria
aad Vancouver papers, but by all those
who have had the pleasure of witnessing
the show for themselves. It is unique,
moral, instructive, amusing and entertaining, and nn one should miss it. The
price of admission places tho entertainment within the reach of all. Do not
fail to see it. Tlie company will give two
exhibitions, one this evening and Ihe
second to-morrow night, and it goes without saying that they will have n crowded
house.

'flu- regular weekly meeting of tire
City Council was held last night.
There wore present His Worship Mayor
Bate, Aldermen Nightingale, Hilbert,
Webb, Abrams, Baker, Peck and Mahrer.
The minutes oi the last meeting were
read and adopted.
The Salvation Army here broke in
with Binging and beating tbe big drum.
The City Clerk said the Captain had
called at his house and requested to be
allowed to use the ball and he gave the
permission before he thought that it was
the evening on  which  the Council sat.
Aid. Nightingale said it would nol be
right to stop the performance as many
had bought tickets.
roMMl'XIr.Vrlo.N.s.
A communication was read from the
British Columbia Tanning Company of
Nanaimo, saying thoy wished lo purchase
or lease, it the lease were a long one, the
lot belonging lo the Corporation between
Abram's lot and that belonging to llns-
leni & Lees, for the purpose of erecting
a tannery in connect ion with n boot and
shoe factory there.
Aid. Nightingale said the lot was IHO
feet long. Wo cannot do it oft'hand. I
move to lay it over for a week
The Mayor wished it referral lo the
street Committee.
Aid. Nightingale said he wns in favor
of granting tlie petition as ii would benefit the cily. Motion to lay it over carried.
Tbe City Clerk then read the report of.
the Street' Committee saying that the
Corporation workmen had been engaged
in grading Mill street and laying the
sidewalk on Skinner sireel, also one man
had been employed on Wharf streel.
Aid. .Mahrer moved Hull the by-law
law fixing the date of the return of the
City shout assessment be read a third
time.
The Mayor proposed that .tho Council
resolve   itself into a  commit! A the
whole.    Passed.
The Council wenl into committee of
the whole with the  Mayor in tlio chair.
The Citv Clerk said he had changed
the date from the flth to the 18th, The
change was allowed and the by-law was
read a third time and passed.
Aid. Peck—What have the street committee done relative to the new sidewalk
in front of W, Wilson's store'.' The sidewalk is low and W. Wilson is moving in.
Aid. Nightingale—It is the intention of
the street committee to do it at once. It
will make a nasty place there and we
shall have tn gradually grnde the sidewalk tip to it.
Aid. Peck called attention to tho bad
state of Robert's streel. He said that
(Janner's man drove into a cave there,
and had to unload nis wagon before he
could extricate himself. Referred to the
sheet committee.
Aid. Hilbert wished to know if it were
tho intention of the street committee to
do anything to Irwin street. Thev promised when thev hnd finished Cornishtown
to attack that job.
Aid. Nightingale—We have not men
enough to go everywhere. We have
looked over Nicol street again and came
to the conclusion that it would be better
10 gather up tlie rocks on it and till them
into Hie trench that is to drain Deverill
Square and charge tho hauling toDeverill
Square. This would not interfere with a
contract for grading that square. We are
not bound (o strip at the $L'01 we have on
hand. 1 would put on om- more man
and as the men would be working close
to   Irwin street they could go there next.
Aid. Ililberl said lie was nol sticking
to the original idea.
Aid. Nightingale said lie did not wish
to buck against the South Ward but it
was no use the men leaving Mill Street
as the road was in a bad condition, and

QUEEN'S BIRTHDAY.
IV    SYSTEM    OF    HEALING    OF    ALMOST   UNLIMITED   SCOPE.
LETTERS FB0M THE PEOPLE.
Kditob Cockieh.-A "staff written"
letter under the caption of "A corner in
whiskey," and signed "W" in last night's
fret Press is for perspicuity not a howling success." It is so abstruse and—
meaningless lhat uobodv, but the writer
can possibly understand it. When "W"
writes he should endeavor to make his
meaniag plain, so that ordinary iieople
who are not blessed with such a power-
tul brain as "himself" can understand it.
There is an old saw to the effect that
Brevity is the soul of wit," but although
the communication is brief It lacks either
foiii. or wit. There is another to the
follow tag effect: "Writers are born not
made", but I will say that "W" seems
neither horn nor made. V

A meeting to consider the question of
celebrating the Queen's birthday was
held last night in the council chamber
after tbe City Council adjourned. Very
few were present. A committee wns appointed lo draw up a programme. The
gentlemen appointed were Mavor Bate,
chairman, and Aldermen Nightingale
and Peck, Dr. Le Ballister, A. Richardson, W. Beveridge, and (I. Norris. Tlie
committee will meet to-night at 8o'clock
to make out a programme nnd a Public
Meeting will be held in the city council
chambers on Thursday night at 7:30
o'clock to receive Iheir report.
A walk is to be constructed from near
Richardson A Horner's across Commercial Inlet to the Green, by Mr. Rowbottom
which will be a greal, convenience, 11
is expected Ibe charge will be 10c a bead
to cross.
The mayor wished to have the band
stand removed to a moro convenient
place as in its present place it is too
much exposed to the snn.
Mr. I). Smith will write In Mr. Itnbii s
to-day to find out it the (ireen can be procured for the 24th of May, as there waB
some talk of a lumber yard being erected
Theories of Eminent Men Who Have Startled tbe Subject—Wltlml, It Is n Mystery
Still—Excerpt from nn Article by a Skeptical Fhyalclan Wlio Investigated.
What is tho explanation of those phenomena? Iu tho various scientific treatises on the
subject several theories aro advanced to account for them—theories differing materially
from each other aud yet agreeing on Eomo
important points. The Nancy Bchool has followed tho cxaniplo of Braid, tho celebrated
Manchester surgeon, who waa the first to
forrnulato n rational explanation of the mesmeric and I; in,Ire,t states. Its disciples reject
all theories of supernatural and mystic in-
Ihiene,,; they deny tlio presenco of a "mag-
uotlc fluid," and maintain that hypnotio and
natural sleep aro analogous. Professor Bern-
beim quotes Instances in which by speaking
to a patient who had fallen into n natural
sleep ho lias produced hypnotic sleep without
awakening liini and v, it limit any visible sign of
transition.
The subject still slept peacefully; only his
mind had como into communication with
that of tho physician. "Then," a reader mny
insist, "somo emanation, somo magnetic or
elcetrio current, must bttvo passed from one
organism to tho other." Not so; the relation
between was such n relation H3 mny at any
moment exist between any two human beings. Tho Blooper obeyed tho doctor's voice-
yes, because ho hoard it, and it was a voice
which he had perhaps been accustomed to
oliey. Or ho followed tho doctor's gestures,
either because his intensified sense of hearing
convoyed to him tbo faintest sound heard in
producing them, his sleep being light or tie
saw tho movements from between his slightly
opened eyelids. A gesturo miulo behind tho
patient, and so cautiously as to produco no
sound, or mode bof oro, his eyes being kept
covered, says Dr. Bornheim, produces no re-
spouso whatever.
A THEORY CONCERNING  NATURAL BLEEP.
Dr. Liobault maintains that natural sleep
ls tho result of auto-suggestion. Wo retire
to our room at tho usual hour and mako the
usual preparations for tho night. We put
out tho light, lie down in our accustomed positions, closo our eyos, try to compose our
thoughts. All this suggests sleep, which
presontly comos, unless it is kept away by
somo counteracting influence Wo aro In a
strange bod, perhaps, or wo foci somo bodily
discomfort, or nn agitating or perplexing
thought enters our mind and tho slumber we
havo triod to woo Is banished, Auto-suggestion has failed, just as medical suggestions
may fail if tho conditions aro adverse
Dr. Llobaulttells me that hohas frequently
employed mild suggestion as a means of self
cure; when suffering from some slight ailment,
such ns nn attack of neuralgia, ho has lain
down, fixed his eyo on somo bright object
nnd wished to sleep for half an hour and
nwoko free from pain. A truo hypnotic
sleep has thus been induced, and ho has
awakened at tho suggested moment with the
pain gone. I tako It, howovor, that hts case
is exceptional, and that tho curativo suggestion, to be effective, must genorally bo supplied by another person.
Trofessoi- Benihclni defines tho hypnotic
stato ns a psychical condition In which the
subject is influenced by suggestion to an Increased degree. In this state ho ls In relation
with tho operator, whoso suggestions ho accepts and oboys unqiiestionitigly. These suggestions may bo trivial and useless, or they
may bo and In trentnientnroseriousand beno-
flcial. But whatever Im their nature the patient's mind is for tho time being entirely
bent on carrying them out, and If so directed
will act on tho body to effect changes of beneficial tendency. Thus somo morbid habit is
for tho tiino controlled by a command or
suggestion noting through tho Imagination.
A patient is subject to periodical attacks of
somo complaint— say asthma or neuralgia,
Hts system has accepted tho morbid condition, which has becorno as much n habit as
waking In tho morning or eating at regular
hours.
Such a ono Is put into tho hypnotic sleep;
his mind is closed against impressions except
tho suggestion of tho operator; it strives to
obey this suggestion, thnt tho pain shall not
return at tho usual time. That tlmo arrives
and tho morbid habit trios to assort Itself.
Thoro will bo somo uneasiness, a transient
difficulty of breathing in the one case, a slight
pricking or burning in tho other; but the
morbid habit ls woakoncd, and a few repetitions of |tho treatment suffice to overcome
it. In cases whero tho complaint is of long
standing little, of course, can hedono without
perseverance, as a complete change has to he
effected lu the constitution.
IT REMAINS A   MYSTERY.
And still, though wo soo and record such
results, wo cannot tell why or how a patient
In tho hypnotio state ls influenced to his cure.
Wo may theorize on this subject, but as yet it
remains a mystery. Whether human intelligence will ever compass It is doubtful,
though groat neurologists, among others
Professor Charcot, of Paris, are at work trying to make it clear. In the meantime the
friends of treatment by suggestion accept it,
as wo all accept much that we cannot understand.
In what hands is vested this poworl What
gifts of mind and body must Its possessor bo
endowed with? With nono that can bo called
exceptional. Magnetizers and mesmerists
ifsod to hold that to obtain an influence over
his subjects the operator should bo In robust
health, as the process was extremely exhausting for both mind and body. They
no doubt found It so, as they considered
It necessary to concentrate their every faculty
upon each subject; to strain their will power
to tho utmost; to employ much muscular force
fn making "passes." Tho Nancy school, believing that tho condition they produco Is a
simple result of psychical and physiological
laws, find that no special effort of will is required, and dispense altogether with passes.
Thero ls no physiological reason why tho majority of people should not possess the power
to hypnotize, but thoro aro tho strongest
reasons why that power should bo exercised
only by approved persons and within strictly
regulated limits.
The continental physicians who practice
this system aro wisely careful to protect
themselves and their patients with such precautions as they would use In administering
anaesthetics, never hypnotizing any patient
without bis own free consent or that of his
natural or legal guardian, and insisting on
some third person being present—If possible a
friend or relative of the patient. The more
cultured and broad minded of them regard
the treatment not as a universal specific, to
be used against all diseases and with all patients to the exclusion of other means of healing, but rathor as a valuable adjunct to these
in certain cases. They choose not to be innovators but improvers—not to tako away but
to odd; and they work with a firm conviction
that it should bo the aim of medical science
and of its exponents to press all remedial
agents into tbo sorvico of humanity.—C. Lloyd
