WIIIII.HBAI.K   aUBIALS.
Johnstown, June 4.—This was the day
set by the Citisens' Committee for the
burying oi all unindentiued dead that have
been lying in the Morgues since Sunday.
At 10 o'clock ibis morning the men who
were in charge of the burying started to
work and have been busy all day. There
are no pathetic scenes at these burials,
Men who have been hired to do this
work seem to do it just as a matter of
business. Bodies are being interred in
cemeteries nearest to the plsces where
they were found.
ASOCT   NOON. A   iaWC'BBSIOIi
of fifty coffins wss seen going up the hill
above the railroad. There was not a
mourner present, aud the sight was a
ghastly one to behold. It will take several days to bury the bodies in the different graveyards, as there were few graves
dug until this morning, and no implement* to dig them with. A large detach
ment oi men arrived from Pittsburg today and they were immediately put to
work digging graves. Altogether about
300 bodies were token to the different
cemeteries this morningt
9,000 PEKMONH BICOBn THEIB NAMES.
Johnstown, Pa., June 4.—Up to noon
today 9.000 persons out of 34,000 recorded their names at the 25 registry
offices opened this morning for the Iiv
ing.
THE TERRIBLE  DISASTER.
Johnstown, Pa., June 4.—The eight
this afternoon was a sad one to behold,
and words cannot be found to express to
the lull extent the scenes presented. In
fact when one looks at the sight he is
nonplussed, and hardly knows what to
think. No one can realize what terrible
disaster he sees beiore him. All bodies
that are burned to such an extent tbat
they cannot be recognized, are placed in
coffins and burled immediately. Bodies
were being token from the ruins at the
rate of one every five minutes, and there
are at present about fifty bodies lying on
the bank. The supply of coffins on the
West side of the bridge has run out, and
corpses have to be laid on the ground.
An extra supply of coffins is expected
irom Pittsburg, and ii they do not arrive
soon the work oi rescuing the bodies from
the burning ruins will have to be stopped as the stench arising from the place
ib terrible.
I.YNL'IIINll  AND RIOTING  DENIED.
Pittsburg, June 4.—Three hundred
more bodies were found this afternoon
opposite Nineveh. This makes 700 bodies
found at t|iat place. Adjutant-Cleneral
Hastings to-day stated that he wished to
deny the stories published in certain
newspapers to the effect that there had
been wholesale lynching and rioting near
Johnstown since Saturday. Says he:
" The reports arc utterly devoid oi truth,
and will injure the papers that publish
them. Every one knows that there is
no truth in these statements, but tbe
people away from there have no means
ol obtaining information only through
the newspapers. I think there is enough
truth to tell without publishing false and
sensational stories."

SHOOTS   IUKBHK.
Havre l)e Grace. M. D., June 4.—This
morning Miss Annia McMaster, a well
known young lady fatally shot herself
with a revolver. Miss McMaster and
Daniel \V. Kenley, it is understood, were
engaged to !»• married. Last night thc
lovers had i quarrel and Mr. Kenley
went to Washington sometime in the
night. This morning. Miss M, Master
came down stairs and secured her
brother's pistol, sayiitg she was going to
shoot herself. Her brother tried to take
it awav from her, but before he could do
so she' fired the bullet into her right side.
She died at 7 :.'li> a. m. She was 20 vests
old.
BI UIII.AR   SHOOTS   MAN   AMI   <VI.K.
Topeka, Has., June 4.—One of tInmost stnrtlinu tragedies ever enacted in
this citv, occurred tbls morning at four
o'clock. The Hon. A. T. Rodgers was
fatally shot by a burglar, and Mrs.
Rodgers was shot wo that that recovery is
doubtful. At the hour ntiBs.il Mr. and
Mrs. Rodgers who sleep in a second story
back room at their home on Third Street,
were awakened by the entrance into the
room oi a man irom the outside. Rodgers
started to grapple with him, followed by
Mm. Rodgers. The burglsr tired as
they closed in on him, tbe ball taking
effect in Mrs. Rodgers1 groin. A fierce
struggle resulted, but Mr. Rodgers finally
Kt the pistol swav and pounded the villi on the head, driving him from the
house. The latest reports sre that both
Mr. and Mrs. Rodgers are fatally
wounded.
$5,000,000 LOST  IN   LUMBER  AI.ONK.
llarrisburg, June 4.—Mayor Koresmsn,
of Williamsport, telegraphs to Governor
Beaver. The situation is this: The
boom has been cleaned oi logs, from the
principal yards along the river front and
manufactured lumber has been swept
away. Houses of poor people nearest the
river have been carried away with all,
they possessed. Thousands of people are
homeless and without anything but their
clothes upon their backs. Provisions j
are scarce and are nemed quickly. Many ;
of our people are in absolute want for the
necessities of life. We badiy need disin- j
fectants. Dead animals and all kinds of
filth are strewn upon the streets, snd
grave fears of an epidemic are entertained.
Stocks of goods stored in the centre ol the
city are ruined. It is impossible to estimate the loss and damage to property.
*->,000,000 is a low estimate.     In Inmher

CHINRSE   iOK   MAIU,   FISHERIES.
San Diego, Cala., June4.—Solace Bros.
of Ensenuda, negotiating with a Chinese
Syndicate for tbe sale ofthe pearl fisheries between Punta Banda and Cape
Sebucas, have received permission from
the Mexican Government to import
coolie labor. There is some belief tbat
the Peninsular A Oriental steamer will
bring Chinese to lie transferred at this
point to Enacnada vessels.
San Francisco, Juue4.—Grain shippers
are experiencing considerable difficulty
in securing vessels for transportation of
grain to foreign ports. The shortages in
foreign wheat crops and great demand on
California's large surplus of that product
this year has caused wheat charters to
advance. California's surplus for exportation is estimated at from 12,000,000 to
14,1100,000 tons. The number of vessels
necessary to handle the amount in order to
promptly meet tbe demand ie set at 480.
At present there are bat sixteen deep-
water vessels in port disengaged.

Prayer and  Benediction bv Rev. J. W.

Tlie corner stone of the New Metttodiat
Church on Albert Street was laid yesterday afternoon by S. M. Robins, Esq., before a large assemblage of ladies and
gentlemen.
Thc weather was everything tiiat could
be wished, and this with thc light colors
worn by the ladies present lent an added
attraction to the scene.
The ceremonies were opened by Rev.
Jos. Hall, Pastor, who in a few brief
remarks told the assemblage for
what thev had met. Tho Choir,
assisted ' by the audience, then
sang the li73nd Hymn, " 0, Lord oi
Hosts." This was followed by a prayer
by Rev. E. Rolieon, ex-President oi the
B. C. Conference; the reading of a Psalm
bv Rev. J. E. Starr and Rev. Millar; an
an address by Rev. 1. H. White, of New
Westminster, who remarked the great
pleasure it gave him to be asked to speak
on the occasion, psrtieulsrly liecnuse il
had been bis lather's pleasure to pick the
site on which tlie church was now going
up. PkCV. E. Robsou then related ihe
hislorv of the Methodist Church in Nanaimo', and how he, assisted by tbe Rev.
Mr. Bryant, I'. W. Gordon, M.P., and a
few miiiers built the old church now
Standing on Front Street.
The Choir Ihen sang thc II8II Hymn,
This Stone to Thee in Faith we Lay."
After which S. Gough, Esq., recording
secretary, read the list of articles contained in the tin Ikix which wss to belaid in
the stone.
Mrs, J, Hall then presented Mr. S. M,
Robins with a beautiful silver trowel,
whe in a few brief remarks thanked the
congregation for their kind present.
The corner stone was then laid, after
which Rev. Mr. Wadman, of Victoria,
offered a prayer.
The collection amounted to $145,50,
The following were the srtioles enclosed in the tin box: Names of the officers
and stewards, trustees ofthe church, snd
the architect aud contractor. A copy of
each of the papers of Nanaimo, Victoria
ami New Westminster. This concluded
what hat lieen one of the most imposing
aad successful ceremonies, religious or
otherwise, ever celebrated in Nanaimo.
As we have before stated, the weather
contributed largely to Ihis success, lt
would be almost Invidious to mention
any of the names of the fashionably attired ladies whom we saw around us, as
they were go numerous that we should be
unable to give them all.

TRYINfl  TO    REACH     AN    UNDERSTANDING.
Ixmdon, June 4.—It ia stated la DWc-
matic Circles that tba Foreign Office is
exclvangiarg notes at a rapid rata with
the American Minister here on tbe subject of Behring sealers, aad tbat tha
auession of the rights of Canadian sealers
in waters adjacent to Alaska is naanlnil
considerable diplomatic activity. Both
governments are anxious to reach some
settlement of this vexed question hefore
the first of July, as otherwise it is certain
that further complications of an uapless-
ant nature would arise. If sealers, which
usually sail for the Nortli ia July, are
permitted to leave without aay definite
understanding of their rights, aad American war ships, which have been ordered
to Alaskan waters, sail with n* rasdlfina
tion of the instructions ao far given to
them, it is feared that trouble must result.

THE   VICTORIA   "DAILY  TIMES"
ON THE"LONDON TIMES."
We have read with much pleasure an
able and interesting article entitled the
"Bench und the 1'reBs" which appeared
in the Victoria Daily Times ol June 3rd.
The calm, dispassionate treatment of his
subject by the writer, cannot be too
highly praised in these days when nt
least three men out of every four, allow
their sympathies to bias their judgment
and their language to overstep the
hounds of courtesy. We hardly think,
however, that it waa necessary for the
Daily Times to point to the unwarrantable stricture made by the Chief Justice
upon the Press individally, and collectively* We hive heard many persons express sn opinion as to the language and
general tone of Sir Matiiew Beqbie in
connection with thc libel suit referred to,
but we have yet to hear the least difference of opinion on the subject; So far
as we know all our readers were unanimous as to the unwarrantable character of
the Chief Justice's justice, so far at least
as his remarks tend to casta slur upon
newspapers and' their management.
Granting that the Hoeacjj Gbeelys and
Mr. Delanes, of the Press, arc infrequently met witti*, yet we have a hary
notion that the bench; especially the:
Colonial bench, ie not composed entirely
of CdlEiirDGES or Lynduursts. With_ regard to the latter part of the article lying
before us, we decidedly take exception to
the opinion expressed- by the Daily
Timet at to the value of the great -London
daily as a newspaper. However this
must remain a matter of opinion, as we
aro not in a position, to "gives reason
for the faithtbat is in us" except that we
have—withoWa Bingle instance to the
contrary—found the "Thunderer" fearless
and unflinching in its advocacy of what
it believes to_be right; s. very, Bayabd
among newspapers. Of course like other
men its owners and editors are liable to
ore, being but mortal. Kt for the course
its contronens *b*wa seen fit to pursue
with reference to Mr. Tabneix, we tirully
believe that they were actuated by no
mean or unworthy motive, in spite of the
absurd fiasco in which they have figured
in consequence. As to the Timet being
of the opinion that in the great Franco-
German war of 1870 the prevailing cry
would have Lean a Berlin instead of, ap
turned out to be the cose a Paris, we well
remember that by far the larger part of
the press of Great Britain expressed tlio
same opinion. A select few of those
better informed upon that particular subject could of course be named, but we
think that on the whole any newspaper,
no matter where published, may well feel
proud to bave attained to the lofty position at present' occupied by ths Times.
A paper whole special correspondents,
at least those lucky enough to be stationed in. the heart aud Jungs cl. thc
civilised world, receive the pay of ambassadors ; a paper which daily receives
the most accurate information obtainable,
from almost everyplace of note throughout, both hemispheres; a paper which
one tees lying about the verandah of
Shepherd's Hotel In Cairo just as we see
it in Bombay, Paris, Melbourne, New
York and Valpraiso.
VACCINATION ANJ) ITS DANGERS.
Doubtless our readers are aware" that
for many years past thero has been more
or lees agitation carried on in England
against vaccination. This agitation
chiefly noticeable—for some reason
which we are unable to fathom—in thc
Midland counties; has at last reached
such a pitch that the Local Government
Board has decided to appoint a Commission to enquire fully into the question-
not that Mr. RrrcniK or his fellows aro
silly enough to doubt the enormous value
of vaccination—but to.muke so thorough
und exhaustive an investigation into the
matter, as will serve to set nt rest once
and for ever the fears expressed by tho
caviller or the monomaniac, who frequently sane enough upon other topics,
soon show mental aberration when this
particular question is the subject of conversation. An American paper, with tne
quaint and peculiar humor which ia so
distinguishing a feature of the press of
the United States, says in an article on
the "dangers rjf rnccin-rtion":
In this Country the prevailing opinion
ia that vaccination fa a good thing that
should prevail in everyfamily. It is-cer-
tafnly a' preventive against smnll-pdtt,
which before vaccination was' discovered
seriously interfered with the growth of
the population. Occasionally we hear of
some obscure individual objecting to vaccination, buj, he is regarded as a crank
and no attention is paid to him.
In England it is different. Quite a
large and influential portion of the population are earnest opponent* " of tsccina-
tion, alleging-Outfit leMs.tj) the transmission of disease. The London edition
of the Herald contains a; statement made
by a commercial traveler in that city
which in absolutely startling. It is to
the effect that not Wily disease but a de-
DraTea'dlsl-»-*JMotl -can be transmitted
withUmb virus.^..,...
The stream intervtawwl bad a .brother
named William, who wan jost as good a
boy as could be. He went to Sdnday
school and was respectful to his teachers,
pastors and spiritual masters.   He never
stole apples or played ''hookey." He
always did those things which h- sli< Id
have done, and he left undona "thuja'
things which he should have omitted.    -
But when tide model boy William was
about ten yenrs of age, he wae vaccinated
frum an apparently healthy box, into
whose antecedents no previous inquiry
had been made. Shortly this other boy,
from whose arm the good William hnd
been vaccinated, created a sensation by
setting fire to the house of the family
that bad adopted him. The rest of the
story William's brother told the Herald
reporter as follows:
" The people living opposite extinguished the flames. Only his youth saved the lad from severe punishment. But
after a few days of contrition the boy became more depraved than ever.
" The wickedness of this boy was so
marked tbat it became the talk of the
country, and alas I our own dear William
60011 followed in bis footsteps. He, too.
became cruel, He tortured domestic
animals, and once fried to' stick a lork
into his. Utile sister because she would
not givo him an orange she was eating.
" But this was not nil. When about
fifteen, nnd diiririg his absence from home
William, who; I regret to say, had run
away from his parents, was taken down
with scrofula, and since that day he has
been a physical wreck.
" The doctor and the family clergyman
were so perplexed by the unaccountable
change in William that one day when the
subject of vaccination was brought up
they said tliey would hn\'e an investigation made.
" It was found that the adopted boy
who had caused so much trouble had
.been left an orphan by depraved parents
in tbe slums of Liverpool. A search
among the police records showed that
the father had been for years a common
thief. His mother was dissolute. "' Both
she and her husband died in prison, he
having erysipelas and other diseases
resulting from poisoned blood."
This is all William'B brother has to say,
but a very important and interesting
question arises, viz.: If the good William
had been vaccinated first and the depraved boy had got the vaccine from William's arm, would William's good qualities have been transmitted? - It is a poor
rule that will not work both ways, and
this being so, the only objection to vaccination ean readily be removed.
ADVERTISING   THE   HIGH-ROAD
TO SUCCESS IN BUSINESS.
' M. Menier, the famous chocolate manufacturer, is ono of the richest men in
France. His factory is a very large one,
employing several hundred hands. He
is one of the few Frenchmen who really
appreciated the enormous benefits of advertising. One day a mau told him he
liked Liu chocolate, but it had one fault
—it grew whito ns it '.grew old. M. Menier saw his chance and seized it; Next
day every paper in Paris announced:"
"Le chocolat Menier—tho only chocolate
that grows beautifully white ns it grows
old." Tens of thousands hnvo since
bought it for this great and peculiar merit. Mcnier's daughter we have read
married a noble, nnd he (Menier) built
himself one of the finest houses in Paris
—a veritable Palace.
Hollowny, of pills and ointment fame,
also owed his fast fortune of some twelve
nillion dollars, entirely to advertising.
For the. last twenty-five years it has been
almost impossible to pick up any paper
published either in Grent Britain or her
colonies, witnout seeing Holloway's advertisement.' It was reserved, however,
for our neighbours in the United States
to raise advertising to a fine art. Witness the St. Jacobs oil "ads," which
have fairly deluged the American, Canadian ' and English press for some ten
years. Magazines, almanacs', dallies,
streot hoardings—all were brought ioto
requisition. The consequence has been
that rich and poor alike keep a "Bottle of
this patent medicine by themliu case of
emergency. Instances without end might
be enumerated to show the close relationship between the advertising and the
selling oi wares, no matter of what kind.
8o many rival houses have similar goods
of nbout equal value of which to dispose,
that it is only by means of persistent advertising that the more energetic and enterprising forge abend of their fellows.
It we look around ua we shall see at a
glance that those who advertise the most
freely, almost, if not always, succeed tho
best. Persons who are content to rest
Solely upon the merits of that of which
they have to dispose nnd think advertising unnecessary, invariably, if in some
cases gradually, loao any hold they may
have possessed on the public patronage.
EDITORIAL   NOTES.
We are sincerely pleased to be able to
join hands with tho Free Press in advocating the election of Mr. A. Haslem as
onr representative to fill the present
vacancy. We feel assured that no better
mnn could liayo been found throughout
the length and breadth of thc district interested, and from what we hear around
us both on and off the street we imagine
that if he'(Mr. Haslem) does(.not have a
"walkover," he will yet so far out-distance any competitor Vis to make it a case
of "Eclipse first, the rest nowhere."
A California?) industry tbat almost
deserved to succeed, seems to have died
a natural death. We refer to the manufacture of hens' eggs. The albumen
was mado by a mixture'of sulphur, carbon, and fatty matter obtained from the
slaughter-houses and rendered sticky
with mucilage. The yolk was made of
blood, phosphate of lime, magnesia, muriate of ammonia, .oleic and margaric
acids, and colored with chrome-yellow.
Thoshnlls were shaped with a blow-pipe
from a masB of gypsum (plaster of Paris),
carbonate of lime, and oxide of iron.
After the shells were blown, the albumen was fosced in through a hole in the
small end, and stuck to the sides; then
the yolk was added, and after being cov-
vered with more of the albumen mixture
the hole was  sealed with cement.   It
seesis hard that. Ingenuity such as that
displayed here, «aho uld be cf no avail,
though we IfcavuV'always .thought it a
great pity that tbe egg-maker should not
have turned his attention to the chicken
part of the business as well. We once
knew a man (an American by the way),
who brought in such an enormous number of Kangaroo scalps in order to obtain
the Government bounty of seven pence
each, that suspicion was at Inst aroused,
and enquiry made, when it was found
that our Nimrod had a small factory,
and employed his time manufacturing
the scalps which he afterwards sold to
the Queensland Government.
WHAT   THEY   WEAR.
Liberty silks are the fashion par excellence
for young English girls.
Pink tullo is a favorite' shade for young
society buds this season.
Shrimp pink with tan color is a pretty
combilmtion iu nn eVening gown.
C'U&pletH of flno flowers are worn by ynun*5
girls on their siaipln evening coifTuros.
Moufflon fur is seen ou some imported dinner costumes from celebrated modi&'i::.
In England the fashionable ton gown is of
brilliantsrcd, whatever the fnbric muy !»-.
Handkorchiel's nre daintier and more fllray
than ever and embi-oidered with nuns' work.
Tho classic peplum is worn again itml is
particularly well adapted to a graceful (i^-
ure.
Still one sees the corsoge ornament of
ostrich tips In ono or two colors, ns the raw
may he.
Gold galloons are particularly effective on
evening costumes, and are norv being in:, I.
tho most of. ,
Corals are worn hy the buds, and should
only bo worn by them, for the pink is a very
trying color.
Tho toque composed entirely of velvet is
very stylish, and for regular faces it is most
becoming.
Tho draping of tho soft crapes used in
evening gowns give, nn opportunity for very
artistic effects.
The osproy or aigrette is worn with a high
coiffure, and Is always dreary and effective
as welt as simple.
The Directolro bodice Is one which Is most
becoming, and nt the same time suited to almost any figure.
Keal silver hooks and eyes are used on
handsomo evening corsages, serving tlio
double purpose of om uncut and use.
The good taste of the empress of Japan
in choosing the colors of the chrysanthemum
flowers is worthy of an artistic, following.
A Russian mode of making one-half the
corsago of a visiting costume, of fur ia, one
which docs not appeal to an artistic eye.
Appropriato und very pretty aro tho long
silk mittens worn by young girls with their
evening gowns.   This is an English fancy.
The Tom O'Shanter bonnet is both very
pretty and very becoming to youthful facts,
aud is made less severely plain than hitherto.
The long gloves are so apt to slip off the
arm when dancing that a pretty fashion of
tying them up with ribbons has been adopted.
Thero is a decided growth in tho sleeves of
evening gowns, and no longer is tho simple
shoulder strap tolerated In debuntantes' costumes.
1'i'iiu d'Espagne Is a sachet powder which
is said to be the most durable of any choicu
perfume. It is at onco refreshing anil
strong.
It is not the very prettiest length for un
evening dress for dancing parties, but fashion dictates that tho skirt shall just touch
the floor.
Flowors and wutered ribbon aro tho popular decorations for evening costumes, ostrich tips being more appropriate to dinner
costumes. 	
The Russian upron is now the chic thing
for tho young girl who presides ovor tho
samovar and browr the fi o'clock cup of
steaming Pekoe.
Bluo aud green leather and morocco ore
seen in somo imported sandal shaped shoes
without heels, which are to be worn with
aesthetic toa gowns.
No wedding trousseau is now complete
without a fan to correspond with every evening toilet, and with an extensive wardrobe
this item is no small one.
Tho girdle is the most graceful thing a
slight figure is capable of wearing, and is always artistic. It should, however, be of
pliant silk or Indian mail.
Openwork hosh are In bright rod and other
new and fashionable colors to match evening
dress fabrics. Spun silk or raw Bilk are
equally well likod, and the only real difference is ir^the prico.
HOME   DECORATION8.
Wall banners are hopelessly passe.
Burnt orange is the shadoof yellow thut
should be chosen for tho fittings ot a brunette's boudoir. '
Drapery is more than over fn favor, but
mast bo well chosen or tho effect will be that
of n color shop run mad.
It is lawful, hut not advisable, now to use
moro than six yards of ribbon In the ornamentation of ono wicker chair.
Tbe bullrush and (the stork, liko the poor,
we have always with us—but they grow happily loss frequent as the seasons roll.
January is th* month of "great clearing
out sales"—and they are very much needed
In one-half at least of tbe parlors of today
Tho big tufted quilted sachets tbat mako a
perfumed lining for one's drawer are about
the most tomptin" things a woman can put
her hand to.

THE   LATEST   IN   JEWELS.
Barbaric jewels ore very much tbe fashion
this season, the more crude the more effective,
One of the newest things is' Russian jewelry, which bad quite a boom in this city
during the holiday season.
Necklaces of many styles are now seen in
the show cases. Those ornaments are no
longer confined to the costly gem set affairs,
but are fashionable in gold, silver and
enamel.
Counted among decidedly expensive practical objects, designed for man's use, are
miniature brushes with gold handles and-tiny
pocket combs with gold tops, with which to
keep tbe board in order.
Quite new and very effective is tortoise
•hell jewelry set with diamonds. Brooches,
cuff buttons and earrings are all represented
in designs that follow more or less closely
the patterns seen in gold and silver jewelry.
There Is little to be said tbat is new on tbe
subject of linger riugs. Small seal rings are
much affected by men, wbo ore also wearing
two or more rings on one hand, as a gem set
ring and a fancy ring in gold or gold and
platinum.
There appears no diminution in tbe favor
shown to bangles of all descriptions. Some
of the newer of these are formed of a single
gold or silver wire ornamented with a pearl
horseshoe, a diamond fox head or two little
diamond birds.
As yet both the earrings and ear knobs incline to be rather small In size. Often they
are a smalt stone set In a simple framework
of gold; again they are a small cluster of fine
gems, and yet again thoy are a little gold
knot or a gold flower, fly or other diminutive
object.
There Is no question whatever about the
popularity of the brooch in New York city.
By the term brooch ia meant not only the
round and oblong pins to which the name
was originally attached, but all pins the
width of which is nearly or quite equal to the
length, suoh as a stag's bead with diamond
•yes, a crescent and star and tba like. Some
of the new brooches are made with small
pendants attached, and are used for tha
threefold purpose of neck pin, pendrnt and
hair ornament.

More and moro paper is taking the place of

pattern, and they are not dearer than wooden
doors.

1880: To J. T. Daven]iort, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, liloomsbury, London, Deal
Sir:—Wc embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread repn.
tation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis .'rowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindustan, but all ovei
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, arc now relegated to tht
native bataars, and judging from their salel
we fancy their. sojurn there w'll be bul
evanescent. Wc could multiply instance*
infinitum of thc extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Cell's Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cram**,
Neuialgia, thc Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a.. general Sedative, that have oecarrcd
uni'u t our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diurrhoca, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholcia itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -*ny other foim of this
nicdicjnc than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty wc owe to thc pro*
fession and thc public, as wc .re ofthe
opinion tnat thc substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH Ol" FAITH ON THE PART
OF THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. Wc arc sir,

Postal Irregularity In Ranalrae.
Seldom does a dav pass without complaint being made at the Cockier office
by subscribers that they are unable to
get their paper from the Post Olliee.
Frequently we are assured that the answer returned upon their asking it there
is anything for them is "No!" without
even so much as tho clerk in charge
(whomsoever he mav he) condescending
to look in his pigeon-holes. io-dav a
reliable person assured us that he had.
been handed a paper many days old,
having received later issues previously.
Is there not something wrong when one
gets ones June news a mouth or so before
one's Mav intelligence? Several of these
persons within the lust few davs have
expressed a wish to call at the Cgukiek
oflice for their copy, owing to ihis irregularity in our Post Office. The department is maintained, we contend, for the
convenience of the Public; though it
might he thought that the Public is maintained for the convenience of the Post
Office. We hope Inspector Fletcher's
attention will be called to this matter
and an investigation made.

The Fret Press regales its reader.- with
a poor imitation-o( a narrow escape of
Mrs. Rath from a panther, that was published in the CormfiK oi May 11th. The
true facts of the present case are as follows: , „    -
On Sunday, May 19th, Mr. anil Mrs.
Bath, of French Creek, were out walking, Mr. Rath carrying. his rifle, when
they saw a large panther in a tree.
Mr. Rath immediately tried tu draw
a head on the animal which took in the
situation , very quickly, and startetl
jumping Irom tree to tree with great
celerity, it went so fust in fact that Mr.
Bath could not get a shot at it.
Mr. F. Parkes informs us that there
have been several hunting parties organized to kill the animal without Success.
A short time ago one of these ferocious
animals attacked one of J. Enos' horses,
and tore a considerable amount of flesh
off its head. That is the extent ot the
damage done by the panther in that
neighborhoood.

The Firemen have always earned the

The British Columbia Jockey Club
held a meeting at Vancouver on Wednesday night, when a discussion took place
on the appointment of a President. Mr.
Orr, M. P. P.. wisjied to see Lieut.-Gov-
ernor Nelson appointed to the position,
but a resoluion was finally adopted naming the following officers: Ex-Lieut.
Governor Cornwall, President; lirst Vice-
President, W. H. Ladner, M. P. P.;
second Vice-President. Lieut.-Colonel
Holmes; Executive Committee, James
Orr, M. P. P., J. Rankin, J. C. Henderson. Chilliwhack; Geo. Black, Hastings;
J-A. Fullerton, C. F. Green, Ladner's;
Captain Thompson, Burton's Prairie;
Mayor Grant, Victoria; and W. Cargill,
Vancouver. A committee consisting of
Messrs. J. Orr W. G.- Alcock, Geo. Black
and W. Cargill, was appointed to co-operate with a committe appointed by the
City Council and report regarding the
selection of a suitable site for a race
course.
There ib only one thing about tlie B.C.
Jockey Club to which our friends in
Vancouver din* take exception—thc name.
"British Columbia" may be thought a
rather broad title and likely to lead to
complications, us was supposed would be
the case if the. provincial charter ofthe
nanje was retained by the Hoard of
Trade of this eity. Hut, possibly, no objection will be offered on that score. The
existence of a club of this, kind will do a
great deal to reform the. race course trucks
of the province. In time horse-racing
can be mado respectable and honest even
in Victoria.—Times.

An RMeptlonal Dude.
A Dorchester street car, tbo other night,
was rolling along over tho desert region
somewhere on Dorchester avenue. All the
seats wero occupied. Among the passengers
was a young lady, nnd in front of her stood
her escort, a slender youth nnd swell of the
most starchy tort Presently tbo car stopped
and un Intoxicated man—a big, burly individual—entered. Ho swung uneasily from
sido to sido for a fow moments, and then a
man who sat next to tho young lady moved
along nnd kfj, a little spaoa on the scat. The
drunkard mado a lungo for tho placo and
camo into an unpleasant contact with the
young lady.
"Aw—aw—aiy dyali fellow," protested tho
dudo, "you mustn't do that, you know."
Tho man, though quito Intoxicated, was
uot apparently in n fighting mood; be
grinned, got up and stood in tho middle of
the car, surging from sido to sido again.
Nowflnnd then bo bumped against tho dudo,
who repeated bis protestation:
"Aw, nvydyah follow, you mustn't do that,
you know I"
But presently the drnnkard showed a dis
position to feci that bo was bebig trampled
upon. He reasserted his right to tho fragment of a scat nnd mado another lungo for it.
"Conductnlit conductabl" called tho swell.
"Aw—this man must bo ejected from the
cab, don't you know.   He's incbwiatcdl"
Tbo conductor declined to interfere Thc
plain fact undoubtedly was that ho was o
coward and dare not touch tho drunkard.
Tbe dude's faco showed no sign of any emotion Whatever; ho leaned over, took tbe
drunkard by tho coat collar, stood bim on
bis feet, started bim toward tho door, opened
it with bis disengaged baud, pushed tho fel-
Idw out, nnd calmly thrust him off on the
pavement
Then ho camo bnek, with faco as expressionless ns ever.
"Aw, verydisagweoablo, don'l you know I''

ministers.
After kinging several hymns the Rev.
Mr. Starr preached a most eloquent Ber-
mon into whicli be introduced several
humorous remarks, among which mny he
cited that of the youngster who had placed
a sixpence in his mouth which several
doctors failed to extract, when its mother
being in despair was relieved by the appearance ol another juvenile branch of
the family who suggested that the Metho-

The Spring Assizes were opened yesterday morning at 11 o'clock, in the New
Court House.
The following Grand Jurymen were
sworn in: George Baler, C. Wilson, S.
Brightman, W. Beveridge, Jr., J. Oros-
san, J. Jenkins, F. Wenbom, P. Sabiston, E. Quennell, J. Mahrer, G. Baker,
T. E. Peck, E. Priest, B. Gibson, i>.
Hoggan, T. Munroe, J. Gordon.
J."Beck and James Work failed to answer to their names and were fined subject to their showing good cause for their
absence,
J. Bed appeared a few minutes later,
mil during the afternoon a letter was received irom Dr. Eberts,.Colliery Surgeon
at Wellington, slating that James Work
was confined to liifi bed. E. Gibson was
appointed foreman.
His Lordship charged the Grand Jury
as follows:
He pointed out to their notice that
none of the offences that were to appear
hefore them had been committed in the
Immediate vicinity of Nanaimo, which
was very gratifying, as proving that the
strcng arm of the law was making itself
felt throughout thc land. His Lordship
then explained to the Grind Jury im
what grounds tbey might liml True Bills
tinst those committed for trial at the
present Assises. He stated that it was
generally beneficial to a prisoner to have
his character cleared beforeu Petit Jury,
as in that euso he was not liable to rearrest. '
His Lordship further slated that the
Grand .1 ury hail other great powers, viz.:
the calling attention to existing nuisances that might breed disease, or-gambling, or the condition ot the jails, or
anything injurious to the  public morals.
His Lordship then read a communi-ai-
tion irom a man named J."TJjompson,
who complained of a slaughter house on
the Departure Bay road, owii'-d by G.
Baker, which «as' cite.I ns a nuisance,
the stench being almost unbearable. He-
left the matter with tbe Grand Jury lo
deal witb us they thought tit.
The Grand Jury were then dismissed
until liSO ii-iii.
At the opening of the Cojirt *h the
afternoon the Gran* Jury returned a
True Bill again:-! Wall hmi, a Chinaman
charged with robbery with violence from
the person ol another .Chinaman name:!
All Sing-     The amount stolen was $200.
W. T. Drake, l^.C, on behali of thu.de-

V. Irving, Q.C., for the prOBetjptionJ
said (hat he ol je'ted, as it was it- uessai*
tcjpft in ifi athejavit to the i ,e-jt thai
the witnesses could not be found.
Mr, Drake made out the requisite alli-
davit and said tbat liewasVillinglolinvc

A*.
The prisoner, through an interpreter,
anid he pieietred being died under tlie
Summary Ti-ials Act, and the case was
idjouiiieij till Saturday, find inst, at lu
a.m.
Mr. Irving objected to the prisoner
being allowed out on bail, as the Grand
Jury had returned a True Bill against
blui.

Uills on ail the indictments Detune tbem.
Kegiua v. Bacht, an Indian, charged
with shooting a t'iiyash woman mimed
Noon I'ikl- on tlie find of April, 1868.
The prisoner through au interpreter
(Mrs. nankin* pleaded not guilty.
The following i'i til Jury wnssivom in,
Joseph Harper, llyam, D. Gowan, H.
Haimes, 11. Bniith, W. FtonchotBe, M.
Scannell, D. Scott, T. Jones, li. E.
James, J. Lewis, E. Walker, J. Harper
was elected Foreman.
P. Mi. Irving, Q. C-, appeared for the
prosecution.
Binfkit-Kagen -worn, testified that he
lived at Kiskagash on the Babeen river,
Know the prisoner-1 knew tbe woman
.Soos Pike. Bacht shot her early last
sprirlg, while the ice was on the river. L
teas in my house and heard a shot; I ran
collie dooi and was told that Bachfs
brother had been shot. Bachtcame running towards me with a gun in bis hand.
I followed hirri and grabbed him, and
begged. him not to shoot the old woman.
liaeht threatened to kill mo. Baoht's
brother made me let go. I followed the
prisoner and we met the old woman who
threw her arms up and cried "Bach!
don't shoot nn.'," but he fired and shot
her in the breast and the woman turned
to run away and be shot her again in" the
leg and she fell—She was tben carried
into a house. Bacht was about twelve
feet from her when he fired the first
time. I heard that Geo Mats shot Baoht's
brother.
Hntisswah, an Indian witness,
corroborated the last witness.
Pile, another Indian witness, said that
he was the son of the murdered woman.
Bateht shot her. Ssb.o died the following
day.
SimMtkagen recalled, said we burned
the woman's body, that is the custom in
our tribe. This ended ihe ease lor the
prosecution.
The prisoner then made a touching appeal to the jurors as follows :
- Great chiefs her,: assembled, I think
the man who brought about this trouble
ought to he on the stand where I am, iii
this beautiful country of yours. I never
wonld hare committed the deed if I bad
not lirst seen my brother weltering in bis
blood. I was maddened rvith grief and
snatched ii|i a loaded gun. Vou are a
superior race oi people end are
Chrisiittns who know what is right and
what is bad, but. we poor heathens know
no other law than that of revenge, and
when 1 saw my poor brother dead mj
blood boiled. Mv brother was cruelly
shot with two bullets, one in the leg and
one in '.he breast, the sane- as 1 killed the
old women, whal 1 have suffered i
deserve, I am very sorry for what 1 have
done, but tbink tbe otuer murderer
should be lure, as I do not think it
is right Ibati should suffer everything.
Tho Jury after un absence, of ten
minutes returned a verdict of manslaughter.
Begins v. Kisiuh-Kak, an Indian,
charged with murderiig another Indian
named Si Tuan on the HOt.h of Dec*, 1881,
at Kit Kargass.
The prisoner pleaded not guilty.

vi'.le, J Harris, W. Hughes, J. S. Greenwell, A. Galloway, i. F'rnzcr.
V. Moffat was Slocled Foreman.
J. Sampson did not respond to (ho call
of his name.
P. JE. Irving, Q.C., appeared for the
Crown.     The prisoner was undefended.
W. Frost, a Siwash, wns sworn, and
his evidence tended lo show that there
had been a potlache to which nil the
neighboring tribes had been invited. His
uncle had given a boy a pair ol trousers
to carry some .things to the potlache.
When they arrived there they found
gambling going on and the boy took a
baud in it, and put the trousers under
the mat he sat on. They didn't finish
the game, and the boy's opponent claimed and took the trousers. The hoy went
in the oveninglo the man's house, who
had taken his trousers, and they called
him a dog and he swore at them in English, whereupon one of tbe men in the
house struck him with a pistol on the
head.   After which be went and told the
