Westphalia miners lias now reached proportions demanding immediate settlement in order to prevent their spread to
other regions, and ultimate widespread
disaster and bloodshed. There being no
disposition eyinced on the part of the
strikers lo recede from their demands
which are really just, command the
sympathy of persons of all classes, with
the exception of course, of the mining
masters who resist them. Prince Bismarck has taken a band iu Un- matter.
Yesterday tbe Chancellor summoned
several of the masters to Berlin and lo-
day acting upon his detenuination that
the troubles should be instantly settled
in view of the approaching elections, he
summoned some of them to appear. The
Emperor has taken a deep interest in tbe
strikes and caused frequent bulletins of
their progress to be furnished to him.
He is said to have expressed fear that the
troubles will have tbe effect to defer (lie
fulfilment of bis grandfather, Emperor
William I, with regard to betterment of
the condition of the workingninn and
makes no concealment of his anxiety
for tin; speedy adjustment of the present
difficulties. Tbe Socialists are taking
advantage of the strikes to increase their
numerical strength in the disturbed
regions by sending large sinus of money
to tbo strikers through their propaganda.
This action must necessarily have some
effect upon the elections, hence the
desire of those wbo have for years been,
identified with war against Socialism to
put ail end lo the disorders at once. The
press, with the exception of ultra-conservative journals, are unanimous in
advising the masters to accede to the
demands of the men, particularly in view
of the fact that all of the mine operators
have bad an exceptionally good year and
can well afford to deal liberally with their
overworked employes. The demands
made by the men are that their pay be
increased, and that eight, bonis shall constitute a day's work and tbat their time
shall begin and end at the mouth uf (be
shaft. The miners have mode a direct
anneal to the Emperor fur his support to
their demands, and it is not thought
that tbev have appealed in vain. Although additional troops have been sent
to tlie scene of Ibe disturbances and
prevent further violent outbreaks.

revenue complications. It is an inlet for
smuggled opium and other goods from
China. It is desirable lo enable us to
effectively shut out Chinese immigration.
It is desirable for the purpose of establishing land connection with Alaska. It
is desirable because Vancouver Island
blocks the entrance to Puget Sound, the
site of future great cities and an immense
commerce, and to this ibe military
menace of Esipiiinaull and we hare
abundant and cogent reasons for desiring
its acquisition which can hardly fail lo

A  SBVERH WISH STORMS.
Sow York, May 10.- After a .lay uf
excessive heat a sudden change tu cold
weather occurred abaut ■■ o'clock, accompanied by a lively gale, which darkened
the streets with clouds of dust and did
considerable damage to skylights, sinus,
etc. The squall on tin- bay was sudden
and severe and a number of small craft
were overturned. A yaw]containing two
men was upset near Governor's Island.
A penny ferry lioat rescued the occupants.
The Stolen Island ferry boat at Nortbfleld
became unmanageable and was blown
about the buy fur nearly an hour. The
passengers were terrified, but no damage
done.
Elmiru, N.Y., Mav 10.—Aheavy wind,
rain and liailjstorm passed over tins sec-
lion this afternoon, blowing down trees,
breaking windows and doing other
damage. The sheets of this citv were
suddenly filled wilb flying debris, and
many people were more or less hurt.
The passengers in street cars became
panic stricken and ran for refuge to
neighboring buildings. Some of tbem
were bit ami bruised by flying boardsand
boxes. Jacob Metzger, a prominent
mercliatil, was thrown to the ground by
the blowing over of a carriage in which
be was riding, He was insensible when
picked up, but is not seriously injured.
The telephone, telegraph and lire alarm
systems were damaged and for a time
paralyzed. II. is reported that considerable damage was done at Olcan.
Reading, Pa., 10.—A terrific wind and
rain slorm passed over the cily about
8:80 this afternoon, unroofing a number
of bouses and prostrating trees and
fences. The storm is reported to have
done much damage in the Lebanon
valley, particularly al. Palmyra, where
many bouses were blown down. Telegraphic communication is cut oil' in all
directions and the details of the storms
effects cannot yet be learned. Growing
crops have been greatly damaged. Several barns were unroofed at I'oriievillc,
this comity.
Pottsvllle, I'a., 10.-At -I o'clock this
afternoon a terrific wind and rain storm
swept over this city causing great damage. Trees, fences and awnings wero
prostrated, chimneys blown down and
many buildings unroofed, and otherwise
injured, fn some cases heavy metallic
roofs were carried several hundred yards, j
While the tornado was at its height, a
panic occurred among the female
operatives al (be silk mill.
URAIX  DEALERS   KIXK1).
Si. Louis, May 10.—Governor Francis
late last nighl signed the (Irain Option
Kill which thus becomes a law. The bill
virtually prohibits all dealing in grain
options' unless lhc parties dealings in
such options actually own the grain.
The statute is so worded thai the issue
cannot be dodged, and grain dealers arc
greatly wrought up and claim the law
will drive them east ol St. 1.. uis. A
meeting to consider the mailer will bo
held on Change to-day.
SOdslove die young," it
j said, but there are some people whom,
if the saving be true the gods do not love.
j I have noticed the "gall" and "cheek"
'. displayed by a certain gentleman! '!>, and
I if 1 felt inclined I would give bim a
thorough excoriation, hut, when 1 re-
lleded 1 considered tbeguiue was uot with
the candle. I also considered the saying
"whom Ibe gods destroy tbey lirst inuke
mad." There is a case of incipient madness in this cily. When a man gets
w but is vulgarly tinned the "swell-head"
people wbo are democratic in their
views, have no use for him. There are a
few cases of that tvje of disease in Nanaimo, and the public are cautioned
against contracting for it. I might place
the people on their guard, but I do not
consider it necessary. Furthermore I
inn reminded of another homely old saw
which says "let the devil kill bis own
meat and be will not grumble ut the
butcher."
This ought to be a " white man's "
country, but I beard a man say yesterday that be did nol think it was such.
Chinamen, he thought, bud the prefer,
ence, as witness their employment a few
days ago in a certain work because they
were cheap, No wonder the honest toiler
when asked to work for wages paid
Chinamen, refuses to do so, When u
while man bus to compete with Chinamen il is lime he left the country. For
my own part, while 1 believe to u certain
extent ill the " universal brotherhood of
man," L do nol go so far as to think that
my while brother, in order to follow out
Ibis principle, must himself become a
Chinaman.
TEXADA NEWS.

DisiosAi. ui- Stuck.—The lust few days
have witnessed the purchasing ofa large
amount of dry goods, millinery and mens
furnishings from the cost price sale at.
Arthur Bullock's. We always contend
thnt in small towns il is impossible to
humbug tho public as to prices, as tbey
are well aware when an article is offered
much below its value, and hence the reason of the crowd of customers to be seen
at Bullock's nt all hours of the day. So
don't fail to avoid yoursels of tlie oppor
(unity.

Oil.   ClCuMN   A11A1S.
Chicago, Mav 10.-—The police arrested
a man named, Frank Woodruff to-day on |
the charge of horse stealing.   This even- j
ing the  prisoner   confessed   lo  having
stolen a burse and a wagon from Dean's'
Barn,   400  Webster  Avenue,  about   1
o'clock on Sunday morning last,   nnd
soon after met by appointment Dr. 1'. II.
Cronin, Win. King ami Dick Fairburn al
the barn  in  the  rear of the mansion at I
528 North Slate street.    A trunk contain- j
ing the body of a woman   was  placed   iu
the wagon, into which King and Fairburn
then entered with Woodruff, leaving Dr.
Cronin ut the barn. Woodruff then drove
tbe body and bis two companions to a
little park where King and Pnirhnru removed the corpse  from  the trunk and
Woodruff drove on alone lo the place on 1
Gvanston    Avenue,   where   the   empty
trunk was found some hours after. From
conversation between Oronin, King audi
Fairburn, which Woodruff overheard, be
judged that tho body was that of a wo-'
limn who had been killed by an abortion,

Whether tbe wealthy man residing al '.,2»

1 have often been amused at the slighting remarks made about Canadians. 1
heard a good slory a day or two ago,
which will show the esteem in which that
class were held.
A boat was capsized a few years ago
upon the Fraser River. People on shore
saw flic catastrophe and asked naturally
who were in the bout. An "old timer,"
with perfect coolness, answered: "Three
Indians, three Canudiuns, and three
while men. Well, said another, jumping
into a boat, let ns try and save the
" white men." Bather rough on the
poor Canucks, wasn't it?

I.V   ACTOR'S   ERROR.
Dins BmicicAut.T has bikon the trouble
to express bis contempt for newspaper
opinion. The editorial part of a nous-
paper, he says in effect, consisting of
opinions, is, or should be, subsidiary,
and should not be included among tbe
essentials. Ho continues: "That this fact
is disregarded by Ihe public as lias been
frequently and clearly shown, and never
more clearly than during the recent
President election." It has often been
remarked of actors thai they are one-idea
men.
Very few of that profession have any
standing in the general world. Their
profession is absorbing and it absorbs.
Actors are not thought of in connection
with their art. Hoi'i'irAi i.t has one of
the highest.minds of his day. He has
connected bis name with more plays than
any other man living, or dead, and il
may be said that any play he has touched
he has improved. Without much
originality be had an acute perception of
original ideas and Ibe art to work them
over with plays. He would probably
never have written a play if some one
else had not written one before, bill there
are few plays outside the realm of
Shakespeare which ho could not make
better than their authors left tbem.
But this clever man shows the narrow
range of bis intellectual thought, Living
in New York and reading, like mosl
New Yorkers, only the journals of that
city, he sees iu the failure to elect CLEVELAND the inability of the press to influence public opinion. "The news conveyed by the dirty press," he says, "was
faithfully accepted and acted upon, while
tho united influence of the New York
press,with comparatively few exceptions,
failed to effect the object in view, and
Mr. Cleveland wns defeated in bis own
State."
There are two errors in this conclusion;
first, in respect to ability and circulation
the New York City press was nearly
equally divided; and second, the city-
press, In which lies the Democratic preponderance, carried tbe city for Mr.
Cleveland by about 55,000 majority.
The interior press was largely Republican and it carried ita readers with tbem.
The gist of Boucioavlt's article in the
North American Review is tbat tlie press
has little influence because il is not honest.
He doubtless thinks so, because be
avoided experience with tbe portion of
the press he could not influence. No
man "worked" dramatic critics with
greater address than Ibis same Bouci-
cault. Those be could not work be did
not care to know. There was always so
much merit in bis work, both as an actor
and writer, that the hones! critic would
find much to commend. But tho critics
he sought out were those he could influence. It is doubtless with this in bis
mind that ho now writes.
il UNIV IP A L   EN'l'E RPR IS E.
The Alta-Californian says:—"It is one
of the queer infirmities of cities that the
wildest, public enthusiasm can be aroused
by a newspapet discussion of wbo shall
hold the offices, while the civic sensibilities are torpid when the manner of administering the offices in under discussion." The Alia gives no explanation
for this, and perhaps no single explanation would be adequate. Il would seem
as if every humble citizen, as well as
prominent business man. would lake a
constant interest in the policy of the city
government. Tbe moral and physical
cleanliness of the city, the streets, sewers, tbo disposal of garbage, the protection from fires, the water and lights, tlie
School-houses and public buildings,might
to enlist the liveliest Interest; and tho
men who are placed in charge of all these
things should be mode to feel thill the
people not only expect, but demand, a
clean and vigorous administration.
The Alia says that Commissioner Wc-
Oafhn, who has lately returned from tho
Melbourne exposition, says that in municipal enterprise San Francisco is far he-
hind Melbourne and other large cities in
Australia. This is admitted to be true
of Oakland as well as San Francisco. It
is no credit lo Americans that tbey allow
municipal improvements to wait upon
the Indifference of their public servants.
They would not tolerate such a neglect
of public interests for a moment if
corporation of individual capitalists un-.,
dertook to manage for them. Why
should they be more tolerant of their
own subordinates and agents? The affairs of a city need attention from Ihe
citizens. Everything should not be left
with the Council, They need tbo support of the people anil, without that essential, there cannot be progress. Again
we say let the people be alive to thoir
own interests.
LAURENCE   OLIPHANT.
A Otonofl ui iln- Lata VenatDe Ilomancor.
ills ii-i-iiiie Career.
Laurence Oliphant uuatmoof the most remarkable men of his timo of what nationality soever. Ho was not a great man; ho
was too versatile, too many sided, too erratic
for that; but ho waa none the less remarkable, and ho filled a unique position, or any
number of unique positions, iu tho life of tlm
last ft ur decades ns, perhaps, no other man
could havo done. Oliphant (for, as tradition
runs, no one ever called Ulm "Mr.") was the
puzzlo of the world in general, tlio admiration and sometimes the despair of his friends.
Ho was so many men in one that ho was forever startling you with somo now and, as you
might occasionally think, fantastic development, which, in attothor roan would have appeared whimsical, but In Laurence Oliphant
was wholly lit and charming.
The story of Oliph.-un's life is a fascinating
ono.    From tho ago of 1~ to tbo death hour
at Twickenham there had been serr-oly a
dull moment.   Even hack in tho vary tiny |
days of boyhood ho had his hours of happy [
tauey, which must have done . great deal to
shape bis lifo.   Evan a passing glance at tho j
list of Olipliant's hooks will show something i
of his many sided character.    Thero Is "Halifax Life in Modern Palestine," an unbroken
chain of hlstorlqresearch; thero is his vol
sine of "Traits and Travesties: Social and
Political!" hi which, as Tho Saturday Review onceaoid, hoshowe "tlio gift, not common hi this country, of esprit Gaulols, aiming his strokes at follies ami abuses, without
any semblance of effort," and wilb "a keen
and light hearted wit."   Then thero is hts
hrillinnt novel,   "Altiura  Pets;"   then that
othor curious and masterly told tale, "3ia-
Bollom, a Problem of ihe Period," which you
may follow with "Fashionable Philosophy j
and Other Sketches," ur with "Piccadilly," |
sparkling with clover morccaux, with which
every pago is jeweled.
Contrast these wltb "Tho Laud of Gilead
and Excursions in tho Lebanon," nntl with
"Tho Lund of Klieini;" and thou tako up
"Sympiieimiata; or. Kvolutionary Forces
now Active bi Man," and follow those, If you
will, with "Episodes iu a 1.ifo of Adventure."
and then with this last work and, as many
think, bis masterpiece, ''Scientific Beligion,"
and you will bo nniozed that all these could
havo como from ono brain*
Oliphant was little like the typioal English
man in manner and appearance. He was
medium in height and spare in build, with
largo, frank, Inquiring eyes, a high bald
head, and lung, flowing beard und mustache
Ho was cordial, warm hearted, and one word
from him would put tho stranger at his ease.
Ho coidd, and did, tall; with all sorts of inen
upon all sorts of themes. Ho had been everywhere and known everybody. If bo was at
homo in tho drawing rooms at Mnyfatr, he
was equally at homo in the Egyptiau deserts
and tho Indian jungles, in tho diplomatic
servico ho sought tu preserve peace, and yet
hi w'ar ho was always at tho front of the
battle, nu eager, daring and intelligent
spectator.—Arthur Warren in Boston Herald.

George and Joseph got at James1 desk, while

spilled more and covered themselves with the
proof of their crime. Down stairs Ihey went
to remove the evidence, and in spite of the remonstrance of the servant took possession of

The housekeeper was summoned und

An Opal Story.
Good fortune goes with tho opal. Last
Christmas tho wife of a well known coffee
broker mado him a present of a scarf pin set
with nn opal. At the time ho had n mortgnrp
on his house, his business was in a desperate
condition, ho was threatened with paresis.
Pretty soon coffee began to rise. It kept going up. Ho cleared a handsome sum, paid off
tho mortgage and had a substantial balancti
left. Some ono slipped the pin out of his
scarf ono day in a crowd, The very next day
ho fell down stairs and broke two ribs, his
wife upset a bottle of purple ink ull over lib
uew summer suit, his littlo boy played truant
from school and got arrested for tying o
package of fire cr;icker3 to a dog's tail, the
parlor maid smashed the now chandelier, one
of tho horses developed glanders, tho hired
man upset a ladle of molten load down his
boot leg, tho gas meter man brought in a bill
of 707,000 feet for tlio month, the 'cook set th<
houso on fire with a pan of melted grease ami
moths got in tlie new parlor carpet. The
owner was dlsti'actod and sent for two detectives. The opal wus found tho next day in t,

OVERWORK THAT KILLS.

PERSONAL   GOSSIP.
A DISEASE THAT  JS  BLIGHTING THE
LIVES   OF   BUSY   MEN.
It If Incurable, but Hen of Small Mental
Caliber Need Not Fear It—-Women I'nr-
ulib Lena Than Ono Per Cent, or tho Coses.
No Other Lund So OurMd by It.
Few weeks go by now iu which the com-
munlty is not startled by the Intelligence
that somo man of prominence has suddenly
become insane. Some act of sudden uud unreasonable violeuco or tho demonstration of ;
tome astounding delusion compels attention
to his condition. Then, friends and relatives >
remember he has been for some time "acting
2ueerly" and the question, "How long has
ll mind bee a nffectodf" is ono that awukens !
much excited iuterest, especially among those ,
having business reluttons with him, or con- j
owned In his estate.    "Hest and quiet will .
speedily restore him," say his friends, and so
physicians profess to hope.   Iio is secluded
In an asylum, or in some privato rural re- [
treat.   The next that is heard of bim is that '
experts  iu  corebral   affections    havo  pronounced his disease "paresis,"   Paresis)   Tho
borrOTOf the ago; a slow death in life; a j
malady as lucuruble and inevitably fatal as
leprosy---thnt ts paresis.
Perchance, after a time, tho victim may ;
seem to rally, to regain his inentui control, ,
and hopeful friends will doubt tho correct- j
ness of tho physicians' diagnosis.   But iu a I
few months the reaction comes, darker uud
darker  the  cloud  settles  down   upon  thu :
afflicted mind, moro uud rnoro feeblo grows
the body, slowly and surely lifo fade.} out.
How many Instances of this fatal progression
might be cited, among men not only locally
prominent, but of   national   reputation  as
playwrights, actors, merchants uud  tin nuclei's, were It desirable to call thu puinful
rolll   At least three, whose names aro known
all over #ue laud, are uow iu or near New
York, awaiting the curtain end, and there is
not an insane  asylum  iu   the  country in
which thero are uot numerous cases, of persons of minor individual importance, doomed
to death by paresis.
Generally tbo disease runs its course In
about three years from the time that it unquestionably declares itself, but thero aro
cases—whero it is induced altogether by alcoholism—In which tho end is delayed as
much as ten years, tho greater part of which
time the victim is a flaccid, paralyzed, drooling, helpless and hopeless imbccila or tortured by the saddest hallucinations—a condition from which death would seem to be a
happy release.
THK HISTOHY OK PARESIS.
As long ago as 107:2 this peculiar variety of
cerebral affection was observed, but until
fifteen years ago it was rare and had uot been
SO closely studied, accurately detmed mid tho
knowledge concerning it so systematized us
now. WiSiin ten years it has constantly und
with alarming rapidity increased in tho
United States, until uow it is uot too much to
say that it Is our national terror. Iu no
other part of the world is it so frequent And
its blight is most apt to fall upon those who
are brightest, most mentally active. Stupid
people have little reason to fear it, if they
keep sober, nor havo women. Not ono per
cent, of tho oases are those of females. Tho
average woman does not dangerously strain
her brain, but many men, lu tho eager competition, rapid life and over excitation of
brain and nerves common to American existence, do so—and invite parosis.
Dr. Allan McLuno Hamilton, who is recognized as one of tho highest authorities upon
mental diseases fn this country, when consulted u few days ago upon tho subject of
paresis, for tho purpose of this article, said;
"I boo a great deal of it, in various asylums
aud institutions, ns woll us in my privato
practice, and recognize tho fuet that it has
been, during ten years past, steadily and
alarmingly increasing. It is u disease incident to the rapid lifo of this country. In a
majority of cases it is directly dependent
upon vice and uot upon actual overwork
alone. It Is tho fashion nowadays to cull all
forms of structural disease of tho brain, with
mental dlsturbanoo, 'general paresis,' but tho
general name, dementia purulytieu, is tho
proper term. As a rule tho discaso at tacks
persons who are primarily dissipated* antl
with that dissipation havo a certain umount,
probably excessivo, of irregular mental work.
Nearly always it begins with some depression,
despoudency, or, very often, hypochondriasis.
After the period of depression, which lasts
for a variable time, ensues extravagance of
ideas, which is an important feature of thu
disease.
FURTHER DEVELOPMENTS.
"The so called 'illusions of grandeur* now
entertained are of the most extravagant
character, the victims having vast conlldenco
Jn their own powers. Somo of them claim
to possess the entire wealth of the world aud
—more or less governed by this delusion-
give away presents most extravagantly,
spsud their money lu the most reckless way
and cherish tho wildest schemes. Others
bvlievo that they aro specially appointed by
God to perform tremendous deeds, or achievo
great things, such as tho establishment of
new faiths, or tho founding of new orders,
and deem themselves endowed with the
power of working miracles. Their schemes
aro always colossal. Tho character of Colonel Sellers is simply un example of modified
paresis. His eyewater schemo is distinctively that. Another notable fact is that
these vast illusions are meaut for the good of
humanity; that those cherishing them desire
to be greut benefactors, and they are fond of
conferring imaginary honors and grandloso
titles.
"While the patient Is under the domination of theso different illusions ho is moro or
less influenced by his surroundings, und is
very apt to beeomo violent und abusive when
his illusions are questioned or his powers
doubted.
As tho disease progresses in the brain, the
body wastes away, becomes feeble, tho
muscles are powerless and u condition of
paralysis sets iu. Toward the end the patient,
incapable of motion or consciousness, drools
saliva from his open mouth, sees nothing
with his lack luster eyes, and gradually fades
away. At last comes death.- -Now York

Put to Bed to Iio Shod.
There Is u horse in the town of Spraguo belonging'to Alien Williams that has to bo put
to bed to be shod. As blacksmiths do not
have beds iu their shops for tho accomodation of such eccentric uuituuls, Mr. Williams
has. to carry a mattress und pillows to tho
shop where his horse is shod. The horse does
not liko to go to bed, und us it tukes good
management to throw him down ou to a mattress, and get him into a mood aud a position
to have tho shoes put on his hoofs, few blacksmiths like to under tuie tho Job. A Norwich
man has done tho job repeatedly, and almost
always tho horse is driven to this city to
havo now shoes put upon him. The horse is
thrown down und holt, ou tlie mattress by
straps across the body, and his owucr insists
on having tho horse's head bolstered up in a
com/ortuiilo position with two pillows while
the work is being done. There is not, proba-
biyT another' horse tu New England that re-
quite., h mattress and pillows to bo shod
upon,—Norv it:b l.ulletin.

Sir:   We embrace this opportunity of congratulating   you  upon the wide-spread :epu-
talion  this justly esteemed medicine, Or. J.
Collis  Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned foi
itself,   not only in Hlndostan,   but   all ovei 1

we  much question  whether  a better is im- ;
ported  into the country,  and  we shall be :
glad   lo  hear  of its finding a place in every j
Anglo-Indian home.    The other brands,   we I
are  happy to say, are now relegated  to  the ]
native  bazaars, ami Judging from their salet 1
we   fancy   their   sojurn   there   will be but
evanescent.     We   could   multiply   instanced

haw witnessed its controlling power.    We
have   never  used   \ny  other  foi in   of   this
medicine  than  Collis Browne's, from a tirm
conviction   that it is decidedly the hest, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession   and   the   public,   as   we ore ofthe

French Greek New*.
Mr, K. Despurd arrived from the nourishing district of French Creek yesterday,
and brought an interesting budget of
news. He fays there is a marked improvement i" the state of the nun-lies
.since last year. Everything is looking
well and the crops are all In. We are
also Informed ofa
KABROW ESC'AI'K
that Mrs. Kath had from a panther. It
seems that Mr. and Mrs. Hath were out
walking, and Mr. Hath wheeling the
perambulator, when Mrs. Hath feeling
slightly fatigued sat down on a log.
While sitting down she saw something
moving in the brush which she mistook
for a deer. She sat quiet and watched
the object, which camo Bt-raight towards
her and passed within reach, when
to her honor she discovered the animal
to lie an enormous panther. The brute
showed his teeth and growled, and Mrs.
Hath screamed to her husband, who had
gone on a little with the child's buggy.
Mr. Kath took in the situation al a glance
and snatching up a stick made a rush at
the panther, and in a most fearless manner struck the animal, which boiled.
Mrs. Rath is to bu congratulated on her
escape, as a panther is not an animal to
be trilled with.
Mr. Despurd has been enjoying a protracted hunting trip, and expresses himself as more than satisfied with Unsporting facilities afforded by the French
Creek district.
