Editoh Coubikb:—Temperance from
Z's standpoint If he has studied the
temperance question us he says he has it
must have.been very superficial, indeed.
Has he tried moral suasion'' If so with
what result?
He admits murder to be an evil, now
there cannot be murder in law until the
deed 1* committed. Where will his moral
suasion come in, in that rase ?
I am afraid he has studied so main
years that he has become childish. lie
calls women an evil! I wonder that in
hi* deep reiearchc* he never found out
that man 1* an evil. Now where there
is no evil there need be no law. And if
we may judge from the amount of Legislation enacted, to regulate and control
the liquor traffic, we are forced to the
conclusion that it (the liquor trarlic) is
the greatest evil under the Sun.

Iropovtsal Part Played   by Cotupatltion.
A man who hud received a cable mes-
suge composed of nothing but names of
cities went loan expert maker of cipher
codes to see if ho could throw any light
on the meaning
'Have you made no personal arrangement with any correspondent by which
those names of cities ore to stand for certain phrases?" asked the expert
"I have not." answered the man. -*1
came to you because I thought youmighi
have some coiie containing the ciphers,"
'There is no pi inted code that contains
proper named ua cipher*," said tbe expert 'The season Is this: The cable
companies accepted all kind* of business
at lirst. even combinations of letters
which spelled nothing But they soon
found tbnt the ingenuity of their merchant patrons enabled them to send almost any message ut the cost of but a
few words, by devising codes whereto
each letter stood for a phrase, and
wherein even the juxtaposition of letters
and numerals, which in themselves had
meanings, indicated still other mean
inga. Of course this reduced the profits of tbe cable companies, ao they began
to make rules. Tbey refused to tram
mit any combination of letter* unless It
spelled on actual word. Then they limited tho number of languages they would
transmit. Tben they refused to take,
proper names, unless the context showed
they were a proper part.
'Ail this, of course, waa to make it eo
hard to got up satisfactory and permanent cable codes that the merchant would
be compelled for safety's sake to resort
to straight out and out discourse in f ran i
ing his messages. But as tbe difficulties
increased men began to make specialtief
of devising Ingenious codes, and finally
the companies bad to come out flat footed
and refuse to transmit messages In cipher.
Uf course this was a severe blow to trade,
as a vast quantity of small b 'tints* could
nol then be done, because ths oast of
cabling about it cut off most of the even
tual profit.
-    CaJUUB WAS VXBT ILL.
"But even then coda* were used, but
of a curious sort In one that I know of.
for Instance, it was arranged that a certain large catalogue of common verbs,
nouns, adjective* and prepositions should
be understood to have no meaning whatever. The cipher words were made up
outside of this catalogue, and the exempted words wero used to fill In, giving
Ihe semblance of an actual, straight out
sentence. Here was a sentence, for instance, that I cabled while a olerk in a
shipping bouse
'Can-la very Ul Tell Thomas prspar* nitrate:
Ananias colni-: leleRiupl, Josephine.
"That looks innocent: yet thi* is whal
it meant:

'So you nee I really seat thi* message:
'Market on eve of a .harp rise Buy for spscu

We can sell at 0 coats Telegraph
is to say, I sent twenty-six
words at a cost of eleven words, while I
appeared to the cable company tobemere-
ly transmitting a communication that
pool Carrie was sick, und that Ananias
• is going lo telegraph Josephine about
it It must nave seemed strange to the
operators thai we should telegraph
Thomas who was 5,000 miles away, to
prepare medicine for Carrie, who was
presumably in New York, especially a*
the rate then waa about $0 a word. U
must also have seemed strange that Carrie got very Ulv every time there was a
rise in the nitrate market. But th* message was straight diaetmttt, and of
course the companies had nothing to do
but accept the message.
"NO CIPHBIIS PI-JtatlTl'IsD.'
"Competition finally cams to tho merchant's aid. New cable lines, seeking
business, offered more liberal conditions,
and gradually the merchant acquired, as
his rooogniaod right, thu power of tuini,

OUR
REPRESENTATIVES
THEIR FLEDGES.
AND
In our last issue we had occasion to
somewhat severely criticise the supine
attitude adopted by the member for
Comox towards his constituents. We
are led, upon giving the matter further
consideration, to suggeBt that in the election which is shortly to take place in
Nanaimo and district, that no pledges be
required from Ma. Haslem. Ourreasons
for such a suggestion are that having onee
carefully selected a candidate in whom
we thoroughly believe, a man utterly
above suspicion of entertaining interested
motives in his desire to enter the Legislature as our representative, that then
having got such a candidate, it would be
the wiser plan to give him a "free hand,"
rather than to shackle him with pledges
and promises which circumstances yet
unforeseen might make it both harmful to
his constituency, and derogatory to his
self-respect to keep; but which as a man
of honor he would have no choice bul to
keep. We would impress most strongly
upon our readers that in such a country
as iB this of British Columbia, where opposing parties have no sharply defined
line of policy, but necessarily deal with
matters as they arise—a country in which
we firmly believe that for the most part
—whichever side happens to be in power
—that Bide endeavors, to the best of its
ability, to advance the general interests j
we say where this iact is admitted by all
but the strict partisan or the professional
politician, tbat our chief aim in selecting
the proper man is nol to choose the one
from whom we are able to extract the
greatest number of promises. What
have such promises been worth in the
past from, say—the member for Comox,
besides others we could name nearer
home? What we do want,
however, is a man upon whom
we can rely to use his own judgment
wisely and well, in the event of grave
matters of importance arising. A man
whose record is good. One whose
straightforward probity is questioned by
none. When such a man as this consents to become a candidate for Parliamentary honors, we contend that the
fewer pledges he haa to give the better.
■Nothing so fetters a man's hands as
promise* given, which he may be unable
to fulfil, or in the fulfilment of which,
owing to altered conditions, he may be
making a serious mistake. When we
consider all this, we are led lo the belief
that such a candidate as we have the
good fortune to possess in Mr. Haslem, would probably make a better and
more efficient public servant in every
way, if his future course be left largely to
his own discretion, as to what he may
deem advisable when the right moment
nriseB. We grant this "no pledges"
course o£ action can only be adopted towards exceptional men, but Euch a
one we feel that wo have got. We think
we have reason to believe that though as
yet untried, Mr. Haslem has ability of a
high order—the kind of ability that
makes a leader oi men. Further, we
know liim to be no adventurer, but the
possessor of considelable interests in our
immediate neighborhood. Moreover,
Mr. Haslem is one of the most active
and ambitious of our local captains oi
commerce. We can well understand the
man with nothing eftse to fall back upon,
wishing to get into iVrliament to subserve his own interests but what other
purpose can a man haveUn devoting himself to legislative work/Vpther than that
of the public good, when tfcat man pos-
sesseB the advantages which we have
enumerated in the case of *Mr. Haslem.
Party wire-pullers invariably advocate
the drawing of sharp line* between
political opponents. We hope ibis constituency will not blind itself ao the fact
that in this country—at least isi^M-nres-
ent condition—the great dssU^At h is
the man rather than the measure.; C laving obtained the former, we may rest
easy as to the latter; and in this particular election to which we have reference we think the electors may rest ca«y
in the knowledge that they hare secured
the former.
FIRST AID TO SUFFERERS.
to volunteer to givo the necessary lectures and instruction, for of course it is
to the medical man to whom we must
turn for aid in this matter. And yet but
very little instruction would be needed in
order to insure the saving ef many valuable lives in the course of a year. The
loving ministrations of solicitous wife or
tender mother, are but of slight avail
without at least some small degree of
special knowledge as to her patient's
treatment, a know ledge that is simply invaluable until the arrival of the doctor.
Nor is it to women only that our suggestion of forming such a class i9 made, We
have ourselves within the last four years
seen two death9 occur, which we have
every reason to believe would not havo
so occurred, had we possessed but the
most rudimentary idea of what treatment
was required. On describing the symptoms afterwards to a medical friend we
were told, "Oh! you ought to havo done
so and so, of course." However, we did
not "do so and ao," owing to our ignorance ; and yet we have always felt that
with but tlie slightest modicum of skill
and knowledge, those two lives would
have been spared, at least until the Buf-
ferers could have reached a duly qualified Doctor. We throw out this suggestion as we hear much talk of clubs
nnd classes already, or about to be
formed, having for their aim the pleasant whiling away of spare time, or the
gaining of health by invigorating exercise. That our citizens of both sexe*
would find themselves amply repaid and
that shortly, if they would take up this
matter of a class to acquire at leaBt the
rudimenla of how to render first aid, we
feel assured, and it is our sincere hope
that the matter may be taken up by
some of our more influential residents
and made at once both popular and
fashionable by those ladies who can
spare the time joining in the movement.

MISCELLANEOUS    NOTES.
In our personal correspondence received from England, we have been much
struck of late to note how general—we
had almost written fashionable—it is be.
coming to attend classes affiliated it
some shape to the St. John's Ambulance
Associatfon, or the Bimilar Association of
St. Andrew in Scotland; each of which
have done good work during the last few
years by diffusing a knowledge of the
means by which first aid maybe afforded
to the sick and wounded before they can
obtain the professional assistance of a
medical man. "Not only in war, but by
various accidents in railways, in the
streets, in mines, on sea and river, etc.,
are "perils by land and hy water," liable
to be encountered, and to result in
wounds and injuries of various kinds.
Would it not be possible to arrange for
some such class us these of which we
write, to be formed in Nanaimo and Wellington. We grant that our case is not
that Of the densely populated and wealthy
cities of Great Britain, just ns we nlso
fully recognize that it would be hnrd to
ask our already over-worked medical men
In a somewhat lengthy article contained in a recent copy of the Lancet, w*
extract the following valuable hints :—
In the ordinary dinner of every day
life in the middle class, the importance
of a fair proportion of soup, fish, and
vegetables is lost Bight of, too much
stress being laid on the joint, which is
supposed to be the one necessary. If
regard be had to the condition under
which we now-a-days work, we consider
that a man who has been toiling all day
in his shop or office is not. usually in a
fit state, on bis arrival at home, to ait
down to a heavy meal, or even to one
consisting of a single dish, and that of
meat. There is probably not a man but
who has in his life experienced the distressing sensation of Bitting down to a
dinner with a ravenous appetite, and
feeling, before five minutes were gone,
that his stomach was distended, and
that he was completely done up. When
a man is wearied, fatigued, or anxious,
his stomach is not in a fit condition to receive a hearty meal, and while at his dinner he ought to be resting. Now, if he
preface his meal with some light gravy
aonp and a piece of stale bread, he will
not experience the unpleasant distention,
for the fluid will be rapidly absorbed,
and distribute a feelingof warmth, comfort, and strength throughout his Bystem. If he next partake of fish, properly cooked, he will feel fresher and lighter,
and be quite ready for the reception of a
moderate amount of meat; and I venture
to say that tho man who has taken such
a meal will not only feel, but will be,
better than he who has consumed half a
pound of eolid meat by itself. The one
will be able to amuse himself for the rest
of thc evening, whereas the other will
seek his sofa, or fall asleep in his armchair.

Tub Deputy Inspector, of Post Offices
for British Columbia yesterday paid a
visit to Nanaimo, in order to go into the
complaints made by us as to the alleged
carelessness on the part of officials, in
the Nanaimo Post Office, with regard to
delivery of papers. After fully investigating several cases, the Inspector came
to the conclusion that in the majority of
instances the fault lay with outside country offices. In one case an oversight had
occurred, whilst several were too far back
to allow of thc fault being clearly traced
home. He, the Inspector, expressed to
us his fullest confidence and belief in the
care exercised by Mr. Earle (Postmaster) in the delivery of mail matter, and
assured us that any complaint made in 1 u
ture shonld he inquired into at once. This
promptitude and courtesy on the part of
the Inquiry Department is worthy of high
praise, and tends greatly to re-aseure the
public as to to the management of a governmental department of the first magnitude.
At tub annual meeting of the Nanaimo
School Board trustees, thc Secretary having read his report, it was necessary before the adoption of such report to have
a mover and seconder other than members of the Board. Unfortunately at
yesterday's meeting, the public did not
display sufficient interest in the proceedings tp gather together to the extent of
two, so the highways and by-waya had
to be tearched, with the result that Mr,
Easstn and Mr. G. Walker were finally
impounded to act as mover and seconder
of the report. This is not as it should he.
If there is one matter of vital public in
terest^to all, it is tho management and
prosperity of our Public Schools. How
can the ratepayers expect teachers and
pupils to display the same anxious interest in the keeping up of our schools.if the
public itself remain so apathetic that an
audience of not even two can be found to
adopt the report of the trustees.

/AGARIES OF THE  MEN  WHO  TOOK
CALIFORNIA   AT   THE   FLOOD.
Iliey Were Not Isumans, but Were Maaaaf
Uobelling Against Shams and Confais-
litiiKiltsm—They Beveled In Freedom Sad
Wert, Like, Unrestrained School Boys.
When tbo men of '49came to California
tbey were suddenly cut off from many of tba
habits, usages and customs of tbe older cota-
inunities in which they bod been born a&vi
bred. They found themselves among a new
set of neighbors from many countries who
bad In similar manner been so cut off. All
bad lieen turned out of ruts of thought wbicfe
bad existed for generations, aud into which
-jld communi tics always sottle.
The literary men of old countries can write
dullness and a rehnsh of other men's thoughts
tor generations beforo tbey are found out
Children aro taught directly or indirectly to
regard with reverence the emanations of
somo semi-fossilized brain, although in such
tmiuuations thoy are neither interested nor
unused. Hut they must know certain thing.,
W pretend to know Ihem or admire them, and
why I Because thoy would bo call ignorant
•J they did not.
Now, when men aro turned loose in such a
preat |»u>tiiro as was California thirty-nino
years ago and And themselves even for a
abort time beyond tho dictation of colleges
and universities aud B. A.'a and LL.D.'s,
i hero comes a tendency on thoir part to kick
ap their heels and run rampant for a tuna In
the intellectual scuso.
FIIEEDOM IN TALK AMD DHKHS.
Thoy seem infected with the wild, unsubdued nature around tbem, and in their first
seiiso of freedom thoy do many wild, grotesque- nnd even improper things. That is
why your ancestors, tho argonauts, gave such
ilreudful names to theso towns—euch as
"Hnngtown," "Murderers' Bar," "Shirtail
Cauyon," and the like. It was a reaction
f rou* e,u> protentious style so long practiced in
tho eastern states and older countries. Th.
tendency to call somo ono horse town—Rome,
or Athens, or Ithaca—names generally suggested by somo village literary pomposity,
too, shows his classical education. Reveling
In their freedom tho argonauts lu tht) earlier
days invented within a couple of years a now
lot of terms, almost n new language, bred out
Df tho country itself nml the new conditions
and modes of life abovo them—such as
"Panned out," "Givo up the flume,*' "Broke,"
"Strapped,*' "Busted'' and "Petered out."
Men liked to talk improperly and iu an outlandish fashion, because iu tho older states
iho schoolmaster's rod lirst and the rod of
popular opinion afterward had been so long
held over them to make tbem talk properly.
They have been made so to do in so far as
they did not out of love, but fear, and anything learned out of fear will bo rejected afterward for a time, oven though it bo a good
thing. It is a luxury for a boy to wade
through a mud puddle and soil his clothes
when at homo ho lias Urn from first to last
licked into clean garment*, und tho flrst anc*
lost thought associated with a pair of clean
pantaloons is bis mother's threat that if he Boils
them ho will bo punished. California gave her
first settlers liberty to dress, talk and act in
many things about ns tbey pleased. Of course
whon men first have liberty in anything thoy
aro apt to abuse it, or rntiior make a bad uso
of it. But liberty they've got to have some
Limo or ot her before they can learn to mako a
proper uso of it. You can't mako an expert
horseman unless you givo bim full liberty
with tho horse. Thnt is a very shaky kind of
goodness or virtue which always docs the
coinmondnblo Ihiug because somo ono else
laysit is the thing to do. That kind of goodness is very often deep down in tho depths
wanting to do tho forbidden thing, but not
daring to do it for lack of opportunity.
Many of your solid citizens of today, pillars of church, statu aud society, during
thoir earlier years In California weut for
things forbidden in tho older states "flat
footed." Thoy went for tho fandango, for
faro, for nioute, for tho bar—for anything
and everything which tho Now England 9uu-
fciy school suid was wrong. They went Sod
saw, und tried and tasted, and drank to the
iregs, and found tho cup bitter, and theeo-
iwiiiiii, wben footed up hi tho ledger of
health, to bu a losing one, and being men of
judgment, balance und common sense, they
put away tho ovil thing once and for-
sver, having satisfied themselves out of their
iiwu exporlonco that tho evil thing did not
pay, and tbey really wanted no moro of It.
Thoy could then pass tho gilded portals of
danger without caring to go in, and that is
■•tprobnbly moro than over they could have
dono had they remained in the older states
and trod nearly tho samo path their father.
trod.
THE MORAL IN IT.
I believo thoroughly that It is far better
f or ono to sin and sin in good earnest so es to
know tho evil that comes of it than not to sin
aud yet havo always a covert desire to do so.
Borne of our very good girls and boys, both
of smaller aud larger growths, covet a great
ileal. Thoy would dare toll no one, hardly
themselves. Tho result Is, I Imagine, that
Ihey may keep on covotlng and live covoting
and dio coveting and go to glory coveting,
and if it bo truo that there no thing can bo
hid, and "even to tbo teeth and forehead of
our faults wo must givo iu evideuco against
ourselves" wo may havo somo difficulty in
jotting within tho golden gates and getting
our checks cashed at tho bank of otorual
happiness.
But this is n danger that the old seasoned
argonaut who bos seen for himself and triad
for himself ueed not foar.
In other words tho 'forty-niners had a
hotter chance to bo natural than in.tho older
immunities. It may hi some oases hare
been a disorderly kind of naturalness, but
was it not hotter than no naturalness at all I
Brown, of Tuolumno, used to Bay at times,
"I do wish I could Iio consistently and per-
ilstontly. Alasl I cannot Tho truth will
fall out of my mouth at times In spite ot all
my efforts to prevent lt, and at the very time
It most hurte my business."
Thoro was a noblo honesty in this. You
dread a man fnr less whon he says to yon, "I
• in a thief. I will steal at times. I cant
help It.   You must bo on guard against me."
Such a man hangs out his sign and gives
you a chanco to guard yourself against him.
Isn't he preferable to the coutlous sneak
trickster—tlio man who fortinea himself in
ui oflice and possibly behind an Iron grating,
snd by tho aid of laws perverted to wrong
uses robs with scarcely any risk*—Prentice

A Stnpld Discussion.
One of the most stupid discussions imagin-
«blo is that of the question: "Is marriage a
failure)" It would be just as profitable and
|ust as sensible to gravely debate tho question: "Is birth n|fallurol"orthl»: "Is law a
-allurel" or this: "Is society a failure!"
A good many peoplo are unhappy In tbe
marriage relation. True. What does that
prove! Why, simply that a good many
peoplo havo mode a bad choice of a matrimonial partner. When men and women

the whim'of passion, what could be expected!

A rsmarkablo bird, about tho sizo of a
robin and much resembling a kingfisher
without tho prominent tuft of feathers,
attracted considerable attention on a
street in Kennebec, Me., recently. Flying along to nn English sparrow, with
ono dart of his hooked beak ho killed the
littlo bird, and then, placing ono foot
upon his victim's breast, proceeded to
tear in pieces and devour liim. A stago
driver pickod up tho feathered cannibal
and his prey and carried them into a
near by store, where, perched upon the
counter, ho devoured the sparrow with
apparent relish. The bird seemed to
havo no fear of any one, and showed no
antipathy against anything but the
sparrows, several of which he killed during tho afternoon. Ilia species was unknown to any who saw him, but it is
thought ho is one of tho variety known
as butcher bird.—Maine Paper.

A gang of swindlers whoso specialty
in crime was tho fraudulent imitation ot

has just been discovered. Avuncular
guarantees of this description have frequently been falsified in PariB by a process known among thoso who live by
their wits as tho lavage des faffes. But
tho knights of industry who have been
captured went further than this and bodily fabricated fictitious pledges, which
they sold in largo quantities to purchasers or marcbonds do reconnaissances du
Mont do Pietc. Tho swindlers had succeeded iu realizing about £1,000 between
them by their transactions when pounced
upon by the police. At their headquarters in tho Faubourg St. Martin was found
a complete manufactory of false .tickets.

of Portsea) as Charles John Huffhara

It Is not the fault of tho great novelist's

hold of tho lashes of the upper lid with
tho left hand, and pressing the dull point
of a pencil against tbe middle of the lid,
turn it upward; then remove the substance with a camel's bair brush or the
corner of a soft handkerchief. Particles
of lime often causo great pain If they get
into the eye, es any ono who has ever
whitewashed a ceiling can testify. Apply
weak vinegar to neutralize the alkali and
remove the particle as directed.—Herald

Speaking of the toll gsto near the
'pool, which wss the last oo the old Boston and Albany line to be torn c^w**, ra>
calls to memory an arhTislrig Incident
which old Dr. Shaw, ita keeper, used to
relate.
Shaw used to travel with an old ventriloquist by the name of Potter soma
years before be began to tend the gate,
and he was a pretty clever magician, the
doctor was, ao the two hitched up well
together.
Well, the story goes that Potter and
Shaw wero riding in 'Reub' Underwood's
coach over the Mormon and Southbridge
lino, and the vehicle waa crowded with
passengers who considered themselves
pretty high toned folks, and I guess they
really were.
At any rate when the stage arrived
at Southbridge they all got out and went
into tbe tavern there to get dinner. The
party sat down at the table and Potter,
the ventriloquist, who was a stranger to
all excepting Shaw, came in after taking
a sip of "toddy" and aat down also at the
samo table. A roast pig was brought in
on a platter by the servant and set upon
tho table, and just ufter one member of
tho party had finished saying grace and
began carving the pig, it squealed terrifically, and the majority of the Members of the party not knowing that
Potter was a ventriloquist, as I aald,
thought for a moment that the pig was
alive, and after screeching and screaming, the carver simultaneously throwing
his knife and fork across the dining
room, got up and left the table, leaving
Potter and Shaw to finish the pig.—
Boston Globe.
He SHU Ll.ea.
He stood on the steps of the City Hall
yesterday and blew his nose and wiped
ids eyes and steadied himself by one of
the stone columns, and when he was
asked tf he were ill he replied;
"You bet I'm Ull   Taint In the body,
but right here—right here in the heart!"
"Are you subject to heart trouble?'
"You bet! Heart's alius been troubled.
That's why I drink."
"Have you been drinking*"
"'Course I have. Fm three drinks
high. That's why 1 cry. When 1 get
about half drunk 1 feel so sad end lonesome that I wouldn' give a frozen banana to live another day."
"Do you feel that way now?'
"I do. I don't care to live another
minute. I'd welcome death" with outstretched arms!"
"Poor manl"
"Don't! Sympathy alius breaks me
down Three drinks and a few kind
words make a child of me. Please go
away and let me stand here and freeze to
death. I'm no good on earth. I want
to die."
The policeman on duty in the lower
corridor was informed of the case, and
he went out and gave the man the collar Presto change! He had'scare3ly
got hold of him when the sorrowful
hearted began to resist in the most vigorous manner, and as he was finally
landed In the patrol wagon he called
out: "Old fel, I've got my eye on you,
and I wont to live a thousand years to
get even!"—Detroit Free Press.
Geo. Sherman at tba  Play.
Most people are aware that Cen. W. T.
Sherman la a resident of Mew York, and
that he Is one of the most tireless of
theatre goers. He is a first nigbter, and
usually a conspicuous figure on an aisle
seat or In a proscenium box. A peculiarity of the general's Is that heaeems to
forget that any one besides himself is hi
the theatre. He talks to his companion
about the peoplo on the stage in a tone of
voice easily audible up in the balcony.
He coughs, clears his throat, blows his
nose with a sound like a steam whistle,
and actually bellows out his remark*
without regard of his surroundings. The
other night nt one of the fashionable
houses he broke in upon a perfectly el
lent bit of stage action, which wss being
worked out by a young actress, with the
stentorian praise of:
"She's going to make an actress."
Everybody near him stared and the*
laughed. The general did not appear to
be aware he had been heard, coughed,
blew his nose audibly, aad then settles
back Into his big coltar with a loud grunt
of utter contentment. At that theatre,
where everybody knows the old warrior,

"1 think every young mau and voung
woman la thi. town wants to go Into journalism."
The speaker was one of tbe best known
managing editors In New York city, and he
passed his hand over bis troubled brow as he
spoke.
"I get about forty applications per day
from meu and women who want to become
Journalists, and the proprietor of this paper
jete twice aa many more. A young man
whom I know to be making |100 per week
in the dry goods business came to ine and
offered to work for JIB per week as a re
porter. It makes me a trifle weary. If theso
young men and women knew bow many
blanks there are in this lottery and how few
prizes drawn they would quit."
This managing editor was in a bad humor.
but he was all right as to facts. There isn't
a newspaper office hi town that Isn't flooded
with applications for work. The prizes in
New York journalism are fow. You are
reasonably sure of drawing a blank pretty
nearly every time There are more than
1,000 hard working newspaper men in New
York city. Outside of their own offices and
the New York Press club not two dozen of
them are known to the general public. Thoso

could almost be counted upon tho lingers of a
single hand.
Tlie men who have drawn prizes cannot

draws a salary of $15,000 per year from
The World, and haa an interest iu it
besides. Cockerill was a typo, and fought his
way Up from the ranks. A mos Cummings is
laid to have an inconre ol 415,000 per year
He was a compositor ami a private ia tbo
Union army during the rebellion, and lie,
too, came from the bottom up to where ho is
now. Chester A. Lord, the managing editor
ot The Sun, has a salary ot $7,500 per year.
He started on a small paper in tho interior of
this state, and bad to work hard for success
But he ia Uttle known outside of New York.
George F. Spinney, aa managing editor of
The New York Times, haa a salary of about
$7,000 per year. But he has been a hard
working journalist all his life, and the salary
ia not ao much. Ho, too, is little known outside of New York.
There are probably fifty or sixty men wbo
are simply writers, like Blakely Hall and
Julian Ralph, who earn anywhere from $50
to $150 per week, but, with tho exception of
tba men named, and four or five more, tbey
are never heard or spoken of except In their
own homes and circles.
At the Fifth Avenue hotel tho other night
Archie Gunter, the author of "Mr. Barnes,
of New York," was a lion. He was more
courted than any one ftt the hotel, and most
of the young men around him are ambitious
to become journalists. If they know of
Gunter-Sstruggles up to tho time that he succeeded In getting ""dr. Barnes, of New-
York," before the public they would hesitate.
If they could go Into any newspaper olllco
and see how long and bow bard men work
for small salaries, tbey would hesitate some
wore. And if they could go into somo other
place, and see some of t Iio wrecks that the
tides of the years havo cast upon tho shores
of journalism, they would go into some other
business.—New York Mail and Express,

Origin of a Popular Hong.
The popular ballad, "Listen to the Mocking Bird," was written and first published in
1855, by Septimus Winner, of Philadelphia,
under tbe nom de plume of "Alios Hawthorne," hit mother's maiden name. It was
suggested incidentally by listening to a colored man, Dick Milburn, known as "Whistling Dick," who wandered about the city
whistling in imitation of a mocking bird, at
tho same time strumming an aocompuniment
upon the guitar. Struck by his remark nt-lo
performanco as a warbler Mr, W. said to
htm one day, half iu jest, "Dick, I'll write
you * song for your mocking bird." The
compass of the colored man's voice- was
hardly an octave, and, as will be observed,
the melody was made Very simple, bo as not
to be beyond his reach. The words, "Listen
to the Ifocking Bird," which ran higher,
were to be spoken by him, not sung, except
where they came within his compass, foi*
towed by the whistlers marvelous imitation
of the bird.
The man was a very good natured fellow,
but of to little intellectual capacity that
though be came to Mr. Winners music store
night after night to learn the words of the
long, he was never able to master more than
one Terse of it. Such, however, was his
tents of the comic and such his facility in im
provising lines to tho music, suggesting ridiculous fancies to attract the crowd, that, his
"Mocking Bird" soon added greatly to Did: s
local reputation. The song was published in
ballad form, and at once became very popular,
and such is its hold upon the public fancy that
although It has been sung and whistled und
played the country over for an average lifetime, it still retains its place as a song of national reputation,—Philadelphia Record.
Ate Five Dot-Fin Raw E.fiW*
A boiler maker named Howo astonished the
epicures at Bcheffer & Ker linger "s restaurant,
Baltimore, by offering to bet $."■ that he could
eat, without intermission, five dozen raw
eggs, shells and all. A doubting Thomas accepted the offer, and the freshest chicken
fruit obtainable was placed bofore the boilor
makor. The latter, a hale and lusty mechanic.
unbuttoned his vest und prepared for business. The first two dozen disappeared within
half U hour, the eater apparently onjoyiug
lilt meal. He was not so fresh getting away
with the third dosen, and took more time,
■till swallowing the fourth. Ho kept at work,
however; and Anally succeeded lu dispatching the last twelve, though not without on
effort
His method was a peculiar one. Ho took
up one egg after the other, and, after sucking
It dry, tossed the shell into his mouth, and,
after crunching it into powder, swallowed
that also. When he hnd (lulshed bis job he
drew from his pocket a beer bottle filled with
alcohol, used In a spirit lamp, and drank
down ths fluid. Turning to the astonished
spectators, he offered to est seven dozen more
without the shell, but no ono took him up
Bait .more Dispatch.
Daisy buttons exactly simulating the
English natural flowers are seen upon many
im ported gowns.
Green In all shades, from apple to olive, is
a favorite bue for the trimming of black
straw or Neapolitan hate.
Striped and cross barred crape and sewing
silk grenadines are tbe preferred material
for summer mourning gowns.
A moonstone spider, with gold legs, crawl*
ing up a gold needle to a moonstone globe is
the pattern of a very new nat pin.
Pine Milan braid Is a favorite material for
spring bonnets, with split English straw and
French chips a double good second.
Old fashioned lace mits reappear for wear
witb empire gowns, aud are differentiated
only by jet embroidery of the backs.
The capote and small Nation are tbe shapes
oftenest chosen by good dressers of middle
age, though by no means confined to them.
Lustrous silt grenadines, witb ribbon like
taffeta stripes, with a hair line of white at
the edge, are often chosen for half mourning.
The latest London fad Is to wear about the
neck a lace scarf so long tbat ths ends barely
miss being trodden on wheo the wearer walks.
Fine nainsook ls chosen for summer underwear, and Valanciennes lace Is ita favorite
trimming, if you can afford to pay $100 per
yard.
Bead capes In two colors—as blue and steel,
gold and copper—are no end stylish, but
to tbe carnal mind not particularly handsome ,r
Black toilets still lead all others, and for
evening gold embroidered black silk, combined with gold colored moire. Is the acme of
elegance
Pretty gowns for misses are of white earners
hair, striped wltb gold galloon, or of white
cashmere, striped with velvet in blue, brown
or scarlet
For a mourning pin choose either a bar of
onyx set witb pearl forget-me-nots, or else a
geranium leaf of that stone, with one brilliant
at tbe edge
What nexr.f Turkey red cotton has been
used for a bonnet in London, and a fair
Parisian has dared to wear a hat lined with
pink flannel
Many of the best tailors send home with
spring gowns of light pale hued wool vests of
white embroidered pique, whose flowers match
the dress In color
The bride who can afford it has a lace mat
Inee mode up In Valenciennes or marquise
overs white silk slip, with the addition of
bewildering bows,
•'Butterfly wing" is the very latest point
for skirt draping, and .the insect Is further
Imitated by wearing tbem in fours—two at
front and two back.
Rosettes of crape llsse are among the loveliest bonnet trimmings, and a cluster of violets or valley lilies Is often nestled between
two or three of them.
Good form now requires loose gloves for
women as well as men; by consequence, fashionable ladies havo gone up at least two sizes
In their spring purchases.
Passementerie of beads and embroidery In
cashmere colors can be bad at the cheerful
price of |75 the yard, and about six yards go
to the proper garnishing of a gown.
Polonaise and princesse gowns are worn
now by all women save tbose who must walk
twice to make a shadow who, by consequence, cannot spare tbe amplitude of drapery.
Tbe conglomerate neckwear of lace and
ribbon Is decidedly passe, though twin folds
of ribbon alone, and soft unencumbered
clouds of lace, are mora In favor than ever.—

Ot Janies Malcolni, DsUag u Revolver
to Slsoot Flies.
James Malcolm, a half-breed, aged 23
years, who has been on a protracted
spree, suicided on Sunday evening by
shooting himself with a large muzzle-
loading revolver. Early on Sunday morn-
in<* he returned home after a drunken
spree, and requested his young brother,
Andrew, to loan him his Winchester
rifle as 'he wished to go berry picking
and would like to have the weapon along
with bim. His brother refused and
placed the rifle in another room. Deceased broke open the door of the room,
and after smashing the butt of the rifle,
. presented and snapped the weapon at
ins younger brother. The weapon was
fortunately not loaded. In the evening
deceased came to his home very drunk,
and having procured u revolver commenced shooting around the house while
lying on his bed. His father and brothers left the house, and after hearing four
shots thev returned. W. Malcolm noticed
a smell of something burning, and opening the door of his brother's room, saw
the quilt on fire. He dragged the quilt
off the bed and noticed that his brother
wits dead, shot through the chest.
Deceased was 23 years of age and married, though separated from his wife.
THE   INQUEST.
An inquest was held yesterday  morning before J. P. Planta, S. M., upon the
body of James Malcolm who came to his j
death by shooting on Sunday evening.
The following jury was impannelled :—
J. Horner, (Foreman), A. Tranfield, T.
Davies, J. Hampson, T. Hirst and D. G.
Daley.
The jury repaired to Haliburton street
to view the body, and was there sworn
in.
Dr. Praeger, sworn, said I have seen
the deceased frequently during bis lifetime. He was dead when I saw him
about 9:4o on Sunday evening. I found
deceased lying on his back on a bed in a
house on Nicol street. He was lying in
a small pool of blood which had flowed
• -from a small wound situated in the middle of the chest about one inch above the
nipple. There was a mark of scorching
on the body below the wound. He was
covered with a quilt that had a burnt
hole in it. There were no other marks
of violence on the body. Deceased was
on the bed when the shot was fired. The
burned quilt indicates that the shot was
fired quite close to him. The wousd
was sufficient to cause death. The appearance of the body leads me to believe
the deceased committed suicide. Revolver produced is the one I was shown, I
was also shown a bullet tbat was picked
up.
The arms of deceased had evidently
been adjusted before I saw the body. The
deceased had evidently been lying on tbe
bed firing the piBtol, as there were markB
on the rafters where a bullet had struck.
William Malcolm, sworn, testified, I
returned home about 0:30 p. m. My
brother James was drunk. He started
shooting round the house about (i :30 p.
m., with the revolver produced. He
said he was shooting at flies. He fired
about four Bhots while lying on his bed.
I smelt the quilt burning and went into
the bedroom and saw the quilt on fire. I
pulled it off and found my brother wus
dead.1 When I pulled the quilt off the
pistol fell to the ground. When James
first entered the house he asked my
brother Andrew for the loan of his rifle,
which was refused. He afterwards took
i the rifle artd broke it on the floor.
John Malcolm testified that his sons
James and Andrew had a row over a
Winchester rifle. James took the rifle
and snapped it at Andrew. James afterwards went to bed. I saw n bottle of
rum standing on the table. James commenced firing off the pistol produced.
I had the pistol under the blankets in
my bed in the morning.
He has done no good since his wife
left him. He has stayed with me for
two years and during that time I have
received nothing from him.
Andrew Malcolm, sworn, said, when
James came home he struck me with a
whip and told me to get up. He wanted
my gun. I refused to lend it. He afterwards took it and aimed it and snapped
'it at me.
Constable O'Connell, sworn, said:—I
was called in the evening to the house of
John Malcolm and saw James Malcolm
lying dead with both his arms extended.
I saw the pistol lying on the stand near
• the bed. Saw where bullets had Btruck
the door and rafters. I think ;t man in
liquor might possibly have shot himself
accidentally with that clumsy weapon.
The jury returned as their verdict that
deceased came to his death by shooting
himself while under the influence of
liquor and was not in his proper senses
at the time.
George Freere, who recently arrived
j here on a visit from Vancouver, was
! drowned on Sunday afternoon while
! bathing in Fish-hook Lake.Cedar District.
, Deceased was working as a hod carrier in
; Vancouver for a plasterer named Nicholas
: Shaver.
Freere and :i young man went for a
bathe in the lake, neither of them being
able to swim, and Freere, who was carefully feeling his way in the water with
his foot, suddenly slipped over a steep
place and disappeared and though his
friend reached him a stick which Freere
caught hold of, he was unable to keep
him above water and he was drowned
within a few feet of shore.
The accident occurred about 4 o'clock

Texada News.
Mr. Carmichael, foreman of the Van.
couver Syudicate, and at present engaged in developing thc -'Golden Slipper"
and other ledges situated on Texada Island, informs us that the report which
appeared in the Nanaimo evening paper
some few days ago, to the effect that
work on the "Golden Slipper" wss nearly suspended, was untrue. Ho (Mr.
Ciirmichael) says that he has thirteen
men at work, who are engaged in working five different claims. Two shafts are
down thirty-five feet on the "Golden
Slipper," with every indication of the
rock bearing more of the precioitB
metal as the depth increases. Assays made from time to time he
assures us are of a most satisfactory
nature, though no large crushing has
been done as yet. We understand that
the rest of tho claim-holders on the island are awaiting the result of the syndicate's enterprise; a not altogether wise
proceeding on their part, we imagine, as
if the syndicate should by any chance
"shut down," the market value of every
ledge on the island would be materially
depreciated. This would be most unfortunate, as we understand that many
other claims, some of which are held by
Nanaimo men, are in all probability,
quite as rich, if not richer, than the
much-talked of "Golden Slipper."

meeting- to  Consider means fo   iitl
the Destitute at Seattle.
A meeting was held last night in the
Council Chamber to devise some mean
to aid the sufferers by the late disastrous
fire in Seattle.
W. C. Halleck moved the following
resolution:—
Whereas, The City of Seattle, W. T.,
has but just been devastated and laid
waste by a serious conflagration, causing
much suffering to all of her citizens—especially to the working classes—and j
Whereas, In view of the fact that the
citizens of Nanaimo are at present in the
enjoyment of much prosperity, therefore,
be it
Resolved, That il is the voice and
unanimous sentiment of this meeting
that we, the citizens of Nanaimo, at once
open a subscription list for tbo purpose
of collecting bucIi sums of money as are
voluntarily offered towards thiB fund.
The said fund to be placed in the hands
of a treasurer, and chairman of this
meeting^ tp be sent to the proper receivers of such monies now held by a committee appointed for that purpose in
Seattle. W. C. Halleck.
Mayor Bate, was elected chairman, B.
H. Smith, Secretary, George Cruik-
shank, Treasurer. The following gentlemen were appointed collectors. J. H.
Pleace and W. GVHalleck, Midolk Ward
—WMcGregor, J. Metcalfand J. Hilbert,
Southward.—J. Abrams and A. Haslem. North Ward.—The money collected will be paid into tbe Bank of B. C,
and the Chairman. Secretary and Treasurer, or any two of them were author
rizceeg to notify the Mayor of Seattle to draw on the bank, to the extent of
the funds as they were collected.
It. was moved and seconded that the
Mtincipsl Council, be requested to donate
such a sum as they may deem fit, in aid
of the sufferers by the said lire, and that
the Mayor lie instructed to send a message of condolence, to the citizens of Seattle and also to. inform them that a fund
has been started.
Mr. Norris editor of the Free Press
said he would print some collecting bills.
A meeting will be called after the collecting is finished to consider the business done.
Fire  Alarm.
Last evening about 10 o'clock the town
was alarmed by hearing the omious
sound of the fire-bell. In an incredibly
short Bpace of time a full muster of our
volunteer brigade was at the engine
house.but with in n very few minutes from
the time of the alarm word was brought
that the flames merely proceeded from a
bush-fire between the boy's school and
the old Douglas shaft. There was a high
wind blowing at the time, which rendered
those who heard the bell doubly anxious
for a short time. We would like to add
a word of caution 'to persons setting fire'
to brushwood within or near to the city
limits. They should remember Vancouver and the origin of its destruction.
 *. *
Capsized   in   the   Bay.
John Honeymnn while out sailing in
the bay yesterday, was capsized in a
squall. After flouting around for some
time in company with a pair of sculls, a
boot and n pipe Mr.Honeyman scrambled
on to his overturned craft and was finally
rescued by a ladv and gentleman in a
row boat. He arrived home wet, but
more enthusiastic about boating than
ever.
The boat was brought in safely.
■truck mineral   Water.
The Oyster Harbor Coal Co. while
boring for coal near Oyster Bay last week,
struck a spring of mineral water at a
depth of 390 feet. The spring throws a
good volume of water, possessing a mineral tnste suggestive of iron. The stream
when first struck sprang up into the air
about thirty feet aud was still flowing
with unabated vigor on Sunday. Mayor
Bate brought a bottle of the water to this
citv and will have it analyzed.
Deaths.
Henrietta Janette infant daughter of
Mr. and Mrs Williams died at her parents
residence on Haliburton street on Sun
day.
James Altter, son of Mr, and Mrs Alger Cedar District, died last Saturday of
diphtheria. The funeral took place on
