Further   E-ipprin.euts    Demon Urate
Success of the Invention.
Immediately after the results of the
experiments in cathode photonraphv by
Prof. A. W. Wrijht. of Yale, were made
known last week, there were also undertaken a series of experiments in the
physical laboratory of he .*-herrie!i
Scientific school. The experiments ir.
the latter case were made by Mr. Ii. A.
Bulsteail, with a Orooke's tube, and a
discharge from a laree EhUmiorS coil.
The experiment cf Prof. Wright in delineating a pencil with the graphite core
plainly visible, was duplicated by Bui-
stead, and also the depicting of coins
inside of a thick leather'pocket nook, as
well as metal objects inside ol pasteboard
boxes. English walnuts placed upon
the closed plate holder, showed distinctly
in the pictme "die kernels, surrounded
by the transparent shell. An ink-eraser,
with rosewood handle, showed the shaft
c;' the blade distinctly through the wood.
A considerable part of the plate upon
which the foregoing objects were disclosed was covered with a naif inch pine
board. The part covered showed but
little difference from the uncovered portion. L'pon the holder of another holder
were placed a fish, a dead mouse atd a
frog. The bones cf the tish. judged bv
tho picture, did not siem to have great
opacity to the cathode rays, though the
backbone was dearly indicated. There
■was a region, however, just under the
backbone, which was exceptional '.y transparent. The mouse showed with surprising distinctness the outline of the skull
and the incisor teeth. Hardly less distinct were tho bones of the legs and the
feet. The frrj showed tbe bones of the
jaw distinctly and also the bones of the
lower part of the body. Both bones of
one lower leg appeared very Bharplv.
Another interestim- object was a pair of
eye-glasses contained in a case.' The
glasses exhibited surprising opacity, apparently not less than the steel frames,
whiio the case showed very little resis
tance to the cathode rays. All the experiments at the scientific school '.abora-
tory^were made for the purpose cf securing tne greatest perfection ofdetr.il with
single objects. Kxperiments of a specific
character will now naturally follow.
Prof. 'Wright ha" followed up hie exneri-
meats last week by photographing a dead
rat *io that the bones of the animal and
their articulation appear clearly.

The Washington livening News priut-
a letter pent to the editor by General
Antomio Macceo, through its correspondent who is with the Cuban revolution-
arv army in the Pinar I'el Eio Province.
Hen. Macceo denies published statements
that his aide, Col. Burmude; has been
killed, and then characterizes as ridiculous, reports of a rupture between himself
aud (jeu. (lomez. "In the rirst place
there can be no such thing SB a misunderstanding, rupture, or whatever you may
choose to call it. between deneral Gome;;
and myself. He is the commander-in-
chief, and as such his orders are as laws
to me. I am but lieutenaiit-generai of

and al! seasons. I am subject to his com-
man.'.B. I >nr army is not organised on a
rabble basis. The man who talks the
loudest ie not the commander. But it is
I organized on the plan of a modern mill-
j tary force, where order and discipline
] are maintained, an;! respect for superiors
j invariably enforced. But aside from
: rules of military discipline, there is not
| a soldier in theCuban armv who would
i consider for an instant the disputing of
j the words or commands of Maximo (ro-
| mez. The entire army confides implicit-
| ly in his patriotism and his military
I ability. \A e who have known him and
i followed him in other wars are too cer-
1 tain of our own comparative weakness to
; doubt his wisdom and judgment. The
! Spaniards, he writes, are humbugging
1 themselves with theories to account for
I the fact that he and Gome,: are separated,
I and after declining to discuss the reasons
for the we!! matured movements of the
Cuban armv, he continues : "What have I
we accomplished by the invasion of the |
province. A great deal, in the first j
place we drew the attention of the authorities to the end of the island and I

el'the island to the provinces of Havana
Tyithout having a serious engagement.
We needed these reinforcement- to rr.ake

and we needed a new supply of ammunition, etc., and did not wish to march our
forces back to theCimaga, to.*-ancti -piri-
tt:s or Cubitus to obtain it. Our second
advantage has been  the  calling  of the
nttre Spani-
. lieetof cruisers, gun boats
and coasters to look after the north and
south shores of the western em! of the
island to prevent the landing of expeditions that were supposed to be destined
for the vicinity of San Antonio Cape.
While the fleet, with which we had several "encoueters" so to e*-eak. wni'e
along the northern coast was keeping a
good watch between Cuba. Florida and
Mexico, several good expeditions landed
in the Orient from Jamaica and Santa
Domingo, and by this time the stores
they brought are safely in the hands of

Memorial church in Syracuse, as it is the
anniversary of the installation of the
I:ev. "Samuel II. Calthrop D. D,, the eminent divine who so long has ministered
to them spiritually as pastor of the
Dr. Calthrop was born in Knglandand received hie preparatory scholastic training
f.t st. Paul's school, Loudon. Kntering
Trinity College, Cambridge, he soon became a bright figure in that bright
coterie of scholars, literary men and wits
that followed in the traditions of Macau-
lay and his associates at the university.
In the middle of the century he visited
Syracuse and received his first impressions of the young city that nearly a
score of years later he was to choose as
his home and in which his labors have
been so long and effective. The masterly
pulpit addresses of Dr. Calthrop have had
their fundomentals drawn from the
deepest research. His people have been
instructed by him, not only iu things
spiritual, but in the elements of the
oroadeBt culture, in literature, in art and
in science. His v oung men have been
taught a muscular Bvstem of morality,
In these and in many other ways has he
endeared himself to his congregation,
which is one of the most highly cultured
and wealthy in the city.
Dr. Calthrop has a striking personality. To the eye he is a most pictures.:ue
figure. His head and face, framed in
luxuriant snow white hair and beard, are
of the typj of Bryant and Longfellow.
Although over seventy years old his
rather spare figure is firm and erect and
every movement is firm and graceful.
His whole life long he has been an ardent
admirer aud promoter of athletic sports.

i >n a blight April morning a reporter
followed the winding drivewav that
curving around the hills leads to Calthrop Lodge, an old-fashioned red
brick mansion, surrounded by a grove of
oaks and chestnuts. Wearing a bla.k
skull cap und a black coat of se.-ii-cleri-
cal cut, the master of Calthrop Lodge
graciously;received the reporter who
called to enquire after his health, for,
though manfully repressing all possible
evidence of his Buffering, Dr. Calthrop
for many years had been the victim of a
distressing affliction, until by fortunate
chance he wae led to take the remedy
which has effectually cured him.
During more than half of his pastorate
in Syracuse. I 'r. Calthrop has been
troubled with rheumatism, and at intervals he Buffered excruciating agony from
it. At times the pain was so great as to
prevent him from walking. Many remedies were tried without suceeeB ami
he and Ids friends had given up hope of
a permanent cure or of more than temporary relief when he took the preparation that drove the disease completely
from his .system.
In a letter written to the editor of The
Evening News. Syracuse, last year. Dr.
Calthrop told of his affliction and its
cure.   This is Dr. Caltbrop's letter :—
To the editor of the livening Xt,**-.-.—
Dear Sir: More tiian 85 years ago I
wrenched my left knee throwing it almost from its socket, (ireat swelling
followed, and the synovial juice kept
leaking from the joint.
This made me iame for years, and
from time to time the weak kiie* would
give out entirely, and the swelling would
commence. This was always occasioned
by some strain like a sudden stop. The
knee gradually recovered, but always was
weaker than the other.
About IS years ago, the swelling re-
com:..enced, this time without any
wrench at all. and before long I realized
that this was rheumatism settling in the
weakest part of the body, The trouble
came so ofien that I wis obliged to carry
an opiate in my pocket everywhere I
went. I had generally a packet in my
waistcoat pocket, but in going to a conference at Buffalo, i forgot it. am! as the
car was damp and ,o!d, before I got to
Builalo, my knee was swollen to twice
its natural size.
I had seen lhe good effects that Pink
l'ills were having in euch cases, and I
tried them myself with the result that J
have never had a twinge or a swelling
since. This wae effected by taking seven
or eight boxes.
I need not say that I am thankful for
my recovering independence, but I will
add that my knee is far stronger than it
has been for So veare.
I took one pill at my racV.3 three times
a day.
I gladlvgive you this statement.
Yours. S, E. Calthrop.
Since writing this letter Dr. Calthrop
has not had any visits from his o!d enemy
and is even more cordial now in his recommendation of Dr. Williams' Pink
Pills than he was then. To the reporter
he said:
"I am continually recommending Dr.
Williams' Pink Fills to acquaintances and
thoeo I chance to meet who are troubled
with rheumatism or locomotor ataxia.
"Pink Pilis," continued, Dr. Calthrop,
•'are the best thing of the kind, I know
of. They are infinitely superior to most
medicines that are put up for sale. I
know prettv well what the pills contain, and I consider it  an excellent pre
scription. It is such a one as I might get
from my doctor but he would not give it
in Bucn a compact form and so convenient to take.
"I recommend the pills highly to all
who aie troubled with rheumatism, locomotor ataxia or any impoverishment of
the blood."
The Words of the Itev. James Munlock.
ol St. John, >'. B . Concerning South
American Kidney Cure.
This clergyman never spoke truer
words. He had bit tiered for a longtime
from kidney trouble and commenced to
think—as will certainly become the case
if a remedy is not secured—that he was
fated ti'die of kidney disease. He read
the claims Of the manufacturers of South
American Kidney Cure with scepticism,
perhaps. But he.tried the medicine, and
felt much benefitted within two days,
and using his own language: "I have
taken in all four bottles, and consider
that I received $ 100 worth of good from
each bottle." The figure is not nearly
high enough, for when kidney disease is
not stayed, death quickly follows.

Mr. ilogers and a companion named J.
Schneider, going north to Edmonton.
Here the neces-ary articles were secured
to warrant the ,'omfort of the party and
the trail was taken to Athabasca Landing, where the llud=on's Bay Co's steamer was boarded and a run of ISO miles
made to Grand Rapils. "n arriving at
the rapids the party took their first hunting trip but found game very scarce.
Moose were plentiful on the western
barren land. Grouse were also fairly
thick, and prairie chickens wore also
found. Seven months were Epent in the
Xahanna mountains in the winter of
189-3 during which time not a human
being was seen. The camp was pitched
on the Nahanna river, a stream running
into the Mackenzie about 20 miles from
Fort Simpson. Provisions fell short here
and a trip of'. 20 miles to Fort Simpson
had to be made on snoeshoes. This
proved a very trying walk and only
about half an hour's sleep was indulged
in. On reluming to camp a tour was
made into the mountains for several
hundreds of miles, prospecting and hunt-
ing being ihe object. Gold was found
but not in pitying quantities.
About the 25th of May. 1S05, an attempt was made to cross the Nahanna
river, but proved unsuccessful. A crossing was, however, maiie at the Mackenzie to the Laird river, up which it was
their intention to prospect, but this was
found impossible on account of ice,
which was piled along the banks to a
height of about 10 feet" aud tracking was
foun i to be very bad. Here the party
again fell short of grub, and a start wa-
made for the .Arctic sea. ealling at Fort
Wrigley, Fort. Norman and Fort Good
Hone, the latter being the most northerly Hudson Bay company post on the
Mackenzie. When crossing the Delta
close to the mouth of the Mackenzie,
great hardships were experienced. The
delta, which is a net work of channels
about i'jO vards wide, is called the Mackenzie bay. is very difficult to cross, severed portages having to be made, at one
time the party gave up as lost having
been blown out to sea. the accident being
caused by the mosquito pest, which prevented the party from properly managing their craft, and they would in ail
probability never have been heard from
again hai it no: been for the midnight
sun. which at this point transfers night
into day and the traveller is favored
with continued light during the twenty-
four hours. Speaking of the mosquito
pest, Mr. lingers said it was impossible to
cook or camp on shore, and I hey were
compelled to live entirely in their boat,
lleindeer were found very plentiful and
fresh steak, cold tongue, etc., were freely
indulged in the party. The acquaintance
of the Esquimaux were made nere with
whom a stop was made for some six
weeks. Thev proved to be very friendly
and appeprel to be surprised to meet with
a white man, frequently stroking their
hair and otherwise examining their visitors. Such popular airs as "After the
Bali,'' etc., were discovered to exist
among those in camp, having undoubtedly been learned from sailors from whaling ship-,. An old friend was also found,
who undertook to direc: the party to the
wintering quarters of a steam whaler,
and a slar; was made in tiie fall for Her-
chei Island, a distance of 60 miles from
Shingle Point, the place where the
friendly Esquimaux were found. A steam
whaler was boarded at the island and a
month of hunting was indulged in on
the Arctic Sea, where polar bears were
very numerous, after which a run was
made to -an Franoiaco and thence home.
Puring the trip extremely cold weather was experienced, the mercury frequently going down as far as B8 and 70
degrees below zero. Many sailors, Mr.
Rogers says, attempt to run away from
tbe whaling ships and endeavor to reach
the A.laska mining districts, but owing
to the extreme cold, very few escape
with their lives, their sufferings! 1,eing
simply indescribable.
The Hudson's Bay company's employes at the different poets were very
kind and rendered I ho party all the assistance possible. No guide was employed other than a map and couipaBe. Siberia was touched and Point Barrow
also received a call. Altogether a distance of over 12,000 miles was traversed.
Mr. Gordon Cummings was met at Fort
Resolution working homeward. Mr.
Rogers is very sorry he did not keep a
diary during his outing, but lie says his
next trip, which he hopes to make via
small trading schooner, will be to the
most northerly points it is possible for
him to reach on the Pacific coast.—Calgary Herald. 	
Wonderful Discovery.
A further distinct advance in the now
photograph',' of Prof. Rontgen was scored
the otter dav when Dr. Nousser, pri-
fessor of medicine iu the Vienna university, showed bv means of the Crookes
tube, the presence and position of Ca' ar-
eous substances in the bladder, live and
kidneys of a subject. The sue ,s of
Pr. Neueser's experiment indie j the
probable great value of the discovery to
medicine as well as to surgery and metallurgy. The nature ot the strange medium
which is neither light nor electricity, is
still a mystery.
"Ey George, if 1 were in your place,"
said the olii.'iouB friend, "I'd apply for a
divorce." "I'd like to," admitted Mr. N.
Peck, "but she won't let me."
A l'ather Murders  his   Wife   and   Family
and Then Suicides.
The entire family of six, father, mother, wife and three children were murdered the other night by Richard Klatte, a
Lake View carpenter, who then completed his work by killing himself. The
dead are i Richard Klattke, carpenter,
38 years; Kate Klattke. bis wife: John
Klattke, his father, aged 78; Mina Klattke,
his mother, aged 71 years: Mina Klattke,
daughter, aged 0 ; Anna Klattke, daughter, 7.
The Klattke   family was found   dead
early the other morning iu  a little cottage,   207   Berseau  avenue, two blocks
from Cuyler  station,  a  suburb on the
Chicago and Northwest  railroad.    The
discovery was made by Matthew Brown,
a saloon-keeper.     Mr.  Brown wishing
some work   (tone, called at the Klattke
residence to secure the  services  of tho I
carpenter,    lie rapped on the  door and I
found the premise-, a veritable cliarnal
bouse,   on the tloor lay seven corpses. !
Each had a bullet wound in the head. In
each case  the  ball had penetrated  the I
brain, and death was evidently  instan- I
taneotis.   A heavy oder which appeared
to be chloroform   i.ervaded  the  house.
From this it is surmised that Richard
at first chloroformed the entire family,
then at leisure had taken deliberate aim j
and put a bullet into the  brain of each.
Brown took a hasty survey  only of the j
premises, then  hastened  to notifv   the j
police.   A detail of officers was  sent to I
the scene in a patrol wagon and a more
careful examination made  of the  sur-'
roundings.     Everything   pointed  to a
deliberately planned murder by Klattke
and a desire to place himself am!  family
beyond any further earthly troubles.
Klattke was despondent and his family
cold and  hungry.    Since   Christmas  he j
has been out of work and he ended his
troubles just as relief was in sintit.
The Speech From the Throne by Lieut.-
GoverDOl Patterson—Little Important
Legislation to be Brought Forward.
It is Now Believed She Was Burned at Sea
and All Lost.
Capt, Anderson of the tank steamship
Phosphor, which got into port recently
at Xew Vork from Shields, went to the
office of the Mutual Towing company in
the Produce exchange during the afternoon, and told a story that probably accounts fortue non-arrival in England of
the British tank Wildliower, which left
Philadelphia for Rouen, France, on Pec.
11 last. The Wildfiower has never been
heard of since and the re-insurance of
her in London is quoted at oO guineas
premium. The vessel had 1,300,000 gallons of petroleum in her tanks and left
Philadelphia in company with the Phosphor. Just before Capt, Anderson sailed
trota Shields on January 15, he heard a
story that convinced him that the Wildliower had made her last vqynge. It was
this : The steamship Loch Elive, from
Xew York, Pec. 24, for Cork, reported on
her arrival there onJanuarv S, that
about 250 miles west southwest from the
coast ot Ireland on .Tan. 0, the crew saw a
sudden glare in the sky. As far as the
eye couId sea to the westward, the sky-
was a vivid red for a moment, an! then
it died out slowly until in half an hour
the sea's rim was lost again in darkness.
A few seconds after the first flare up, a
dull roar like the discharge of a heavy
gun made tho l.och Elive vibrate anil
rock. The crew were speli bound during
what the}" thought was one of nature's
prank?. When Capt. Anderson found
that the Wildliower had not yet made
port he came to the conclusion that it
was that, vessel that had caused the supposed phenomena near the Irish coast,
and the captain of Loch Elive was also
convinced that the dire up was the explosion of the 1,:!00.000 gallons of oil in
the Wildfiower.
Frtthrr Fitzgerald Must Serve 20 Year- In
The jury in the trial of Father 31.
Fitzgerald, of Rochester, New York, at
the trial recently brought iu a verdict of
guilty of arson in the second degree.
Eighteen years ago Father Fitzgerald
took charge of Holy CroE- church at
Charlotte. He dealt extensively in real
estate. For several years pasi his financial condition lias been growing from
bad to worse. Several buildings belonging to him, one after the oiher were
burned. Thev were, all said to have been
insured for more than they were worth.
Insurance companies refused to issue any
more policies in his name, en July 17
last, tne parochial schooi burned at 2
o'clock in the morning. Several days
before Father Fitzgerald placed $0,500
insurance on the Bchool, the building being worth about $3,000. John Cronin,
his servant, was caught running from the
school the moment after the lire was discovered. He was convicted and is now
serving a seven years' term in Auburn
prison for arson in the third degree.
Father Fit.-.gerald was out of town at the
time of the tire, but evidence wae introduced at the time of the trial that this
was but part. of. the conspiracy, and ihat
the defendant went awav simply for .the
sake of an alibi. The maximum penalty
for arson in the second degree is twenty

The drst session of the ninth legislature of .Manitoba was opened on the 'ith.
There was a large number present to witness the opening for the first time by
Lieut.-1 iovernor Patterson.
Mr. Fmlay Young. 31. P. P. for Kill-
arney, was chosen speaker.
His Honor then read the following
Mr. --peaker and lientlemenof the Legislative Assembly:
I have great pleasure In welcoming you
to the discharge of your duties at this,
the :irst session of tne ninth legislature
of .Manitoba.
The harvest of the past season has been
the most abundant in the history of the
province since its settlement,' and no
doubt will go very far towards lessening
the :'nancial stringency which has unfavorably affected our people during the
last two years. It is greatly to be deplored tiiat the abundance" of the product? of the soil has been to some extent
offset by the unusually low priceejDbtain-
able therefor. The value of such pro
ducts at the point of production as compared with the cost of conveying them
to the market of the world emphasizes
the we'.l known fact that the freight
rates upon out-going rates are exorbitant,
and any relief winch can be obtained
from auch rates will be eagerly welcomed.
As vou are aware it was deemed wise
to anticipate the same when the Legisla-'
five Assembly would havejbeen dissolved
in the ordinary course in order to afford
the people of the province an opportunity of expressing themselves upon the
attitude assumed by the government in
relation to the pending application of the
minority for the restoration of their former privileges in regard to education.
The result of the elections leave no room
for doubt that the attitude of my government is in accord with the wishes of a
very large majoritv of the people of the
A copy of the order-in-coancil embodying the views and policv of my government upon this question will shortly
be laid before you.
The public a- nunts for the year 1S05
will shortly be laid before you," and the
estimates for the current year will be
submitted for your consideration at an
early date. It will be found that they
have been prepared with due regard to
ecrnomy. and that no expenditure will
be suggeated that is not necessary to the
efficiency of the public service.
A consideration of the estimates in the
light of the knowledge which you possess
of the requirements of the province and
the increasing responsibilities of government wiil show very clearly that the revenue of the province is entirely inade
quate to supply its wants. The impossibility of meeting the just demands upon
my government for needed public services without largely exceeding the revenue is a subject which demands your
most earnest consideration.
You wili be asked to consider among
others, an act respecting the sales of
goods, an act to amend the Liquor Li*
csnse Act, an act respecting life insurance agents, and an act to amend The
1 'ueeu's Bench Act, IS.'-",.
The foreign relations of the Mother-
land have recently proved of an exciting
an,', menacing character. The people
of this pre vince join with tbe rest of the
Dominion in declaring their unswerving
loyalty to the Empire,
It Is with profound regre: that I am
called upon to notice the bereavement
which has been sustained by Her Gracious Majesty the Queen and the members of the royal familv on the recent
death of Prince Henry of Battenburg,
All loyal subjects of the empire will
unite in expressing sympathy with Her
Majesty an 1 Her Rjyal Higkness the
Princess Beatrice in their affliction.
I leave you to the discharge of your
responsible duties in the fullest confidence that they w:ll he discharged in
such a manner as best to advance the
interests of the people cf the province.
apprehended, but maintained sullen indifference to the.proceedings, A revolver with four empty chambers was found
upon him.
The motive for the crime can  be  deducted from the  statement which the
victim of the shooting made.   It appears
that Xankiveli admitted to Smith that he
i  Xankivoll' was the man who made such
1 a blood-thirsty attempt a few weeks ago
j to murder Supt. I denwright, of the Electric Street railway..   In   courEe  of  the
quarrel on the river hank Smith evident-
j ly threatened to divulge the secret he
I held and in order-to assure  his safety
Xankiveli attempted  to   close Smith's
I mouth for  ever.    A  dead   man never
speaks but as Xankiveli did not complete
i his work the truth at last came out.
As soon r.s Smith was taken to the hos-
| pital, the surgeons examined him and at
l once declared his condition to be very
dangerous. The three bullets in his
| neck left ^ruith in a very weak condition
I an 1 the one in his breast alone waE almost sufficient to cause death.
j Out on Ball, But Will not   Likely   Return
lor Trial.
Hyams' brothers are of jii! at last, after
1 continuous    confinement    for    twelve
' months.   Francis L, Wellman has been
in Toronto several days, and it was stated
I in the press that he  was endeavoring to
' arrange for the various charges  against
the prisoner^ being dropped on condition
that thev  left   the  country.     Wellman
and E  1". B. Johnson appeared  recently
before Hugh Miller. juBtice of the peace,
who endorsed the warrant for their orig-
. inal arrest on a charge of murder, and
1 applied for ball.   The prisoners had been
| brought from jail to police head j carters
j to   be  in   readiness.     The application
! was granted, bail being granted in $1,500
j each, security being at once found. Xoth-
ing was said before Justice Miller as to
i the Hyams' leaving town, butimmediate-
j ly bail was granted they drove in a cab
• to the Lnion station, and took a special
: train for Detroit.   There is no arrange-
I ineni that the charges against, them will
, be dropped on condition that they don't
'. return to the country, but   it iE thought
j they may not be on band when the case
i is called, and bail will be then estreated.
I The real object of going to Retroit is to
: consult their uncle, who has been putting
j up money for their defence, ae to the best
! course for them now to pursue.
Tbe belief of the  Toronto  detectives
' that the Hyams brothers will not return
i to that city,   but will forfeit their bail,
I will probably be realized.   At  any rate
! money seen.E to be no particular object
to tbe party, since they engage,: a special
: coach and engine, to bring them  from
i Suspension Bridge to BmUlc. when, so
far a= time was concerned, they would
have reached Xew York just as soon by
waiting for the Atlantic express, which
left the Falls at 5.30. It was on this train
| that the Hvams' continued their journey
to Xew York, leaving   Buffalo at 8,50
p. m.   It is said the Hyams'  paid the
railway company $50 for their special
ride from the Bridge, to BuiTalo.
A Hoy Killed.
Mews received at Medicine Hat from
the 3Iilk River country brings word of a
fatal accident which happened to a German boy, named Wagner, the latter end
of the week. The young fellow was
herding some live stock, presumably
sheep, which had drifted perilously near
a cut-bank, and in hiB efforts to head
them off he was crowded over the bank,
breaking his neck in tbe fail. The deceased boy was a son of one of the German settlers at Josephburgh,

Wm. Smith.
As a result of an early morning row,
Wm, Smith iE lying in the Winnipeg hospital in a precarious condition and John
Xankivoll occupies a cell in the provincial ;ai! on the charge of attempted murder. Judging by the report from the
hospital the charge against Xankiveli will
probably be change 1 to that of murder.
The men Smith and Xankiveli have a
most unsavory record, both being ex-
convicts, they have been around the city
for some time. They bad determined to
rob a ho:9e in Fort Rouge—evidently
Mr. J, H, P. Slunson's—and during the
night croEsed the river to do tbe deed.
Smith was not familiar with tke ground
and did not know whereto locate the
"lay out,''so the plans did not work
out properly. About one o'clock the two
men met near the river bank near 31 r.
3Iunson's house and a quarrel must tiave
ensued. The outcome of it was that
Xankivoll drew his revolver and tired
three shots at his helpless victim who
was lying on the ground. ,Each took
effect in his neck.
Xankiveli evidently thought that the
work was completed nmi that the man
at his feet was dead. Id order to cover
the evidences of his crime lie scraped
some snow aside and put the body of his
victim in the excavation. While he
was being'moved Smith must have
groaned or given some other sign of life,
for.'.gain the remorseless criminal drew
his revolver and tired point blank at
Smith's breast.
.Smith lay almost unconscious for some
time, and then, notwithstanding his severe wounds managed to struggle to his
feet and cry loudly for help. His cries
were heard' by 3Ir. 3Iuns:m who was no:
lonir in reaching his side. Help was immediately provided, and the helpless
man conveyed to Mr. 31onk's residence.
The police were at once notified, and several men were on the scene a few min-
uteB later. Mr. Mnnson communicated
what he knew of the case to the officers.
While some of the officers assisted in
conveying the suffering man to the hospital, o: hers visited the scene of the action and commenced a systematic search
lor the prisoner. Tee arrest was made
soinr hours later, s'erct. McOharles and
Arch, 3Iunro located the man in bed,
and at once conveyed him to the police
cells.   He showed no surprise at being
Ntrer Again Will Women  Vocalist!
In I'arc  Churches.
An ecclesiastical mandate of consi ier-
able interest is the present enforcement
in Paris of a long standing but ignored
order of the i.'oman Congregation of Rites
as well as Cardinal Richard, forbidding
the employment of women vocalists in
sa?red edifices. The cardinal now says
the order must be rigorously observ-Ai,
and says that the immediate cause of
strict enforcement is that many scandals
arose out of the appearance in Paris
cnurcheE of famous prima donnas. On
one recent occasion for instance, when
Sibyl Sanderson sang in the church of
Xjtre Dame De Lurette. the edifice was
temporarily turned ihto a pandemonium.
Long before the service began the
church was crowded, people were trampling on each other ire their anxiety to
iinu room. Men swore and women raged
because they could nor get enough standing acrommodation, and during the most
solemn party of the Eervice. angry voices
were heard in dispute, in another
church where an operatic artiste once
went to sing she was boldlv applauded,
and many shouts of -'bis" again, were
raised. Complaints were made also that
fashionable ladies who gave their vocal
services for nothing, were in the habit of
gossiping too loudly. Women choristers
paid to sing frequently disturbed the
worshippers ami scandalized pious people
generally by their conduct in houses of
solemnity and prayer. From this time
forward acordingiv. only the voices of
me*-and boyB are to be heard in the
metropolitan churches.

A Terrible Fate,
A terrible fate is believed to have befallen a party of five gold prospectors who
left Hosmoollo, 3Iexico, several weeks
ago for the interior of Tiburon 1 sland,
which is inhabited by the Seris tribe of
Indians. There were six members of the
explorinu party originally, but one of the
men reached a ranch and reports that he
and his companions came upon a village of
Indians, that they were all captured and
preparations began to butcher them,
when he succeeded in making his escape.
He believes all the other members of the
party were killed and their flesh ea'en
by the Indians. He states that the Indians all wear valuable gold ornaments

The abject misery of the people of St.

Hundreds are starving and without fuel
while severe snow storms are raiting.
The authorities appear to be powerless

quiet, but it is feared that they will not
remain passive much longer. ' A petition
for work is being numerously signed. It is
reported that the governor is preparing a
scheme which will provide employment
within the next week.

What is it for Nanaimo?
is what everybody is anxious to
know. The present we know too
well. The harbor remains empty;
the mines are working with no regularity ; merchants are going behind; woi'kingiiHti are exhausting
their credit; and citizens generally
are discouraged. .Many have left
the city, and those who are able to
go away seem to excite the envy of
hundreds that are forced to remain.
This condition of affair.- means absolute ruin to the city if allowed to
continue. This is self-evident; and
yet the apathy of the citizens toward any movement for its amelioration is surprising. For instance, a ray of hope seemed to
come in the prospect thai the  E, <&

Mr. J. Gordan'8 case was lhe first considered. Aid. Plants suid he believed
the fad of the brewers of this city paying a brewers' license to the Dominion

Mr. Gordon did not pay a tux to the
Dominion, aud that -vus the renson he

the Ih'i'ise, and thought inquiry should
be made before attempting to collect it.
Aid. Bradley suid Unit nt the time Mr.

'doubts respecting it, us al the time
there was it legal case pending; hut he

Aid, Westwood said he did pot sign
the report, because he failed to see how
they could enforce the brewers to pay

Aid. Bradley moved Unit the report be

the meantime that the collector write to
the Attorney-Genernl nnd ascertain the
facts of the case; seconded by Aid. Mur-

Wiuiukar, In view ,e' I1,., {increasing

Wiikukas, The salary officii',', per annum paid to our police magistrate is out
of all proportion to the services rendered, as we li in 1 from the records of the
past that not more than un average of
ten bonis per month of actual time is
required in the performance of the duty
of police magistrate; therefore be it
Retained, That a respectful petition be

Rev. E. C. Cooper will leave next

We had always understood that
the New V. C. Co. posed as the'
champions of white labor, but at
the present time we fail to see by
what reasoning this conclusion
could he arrived at. Last week two
white men were discharged from
working on the bore on the Five
Acres, and four Chinamen put in
their place. Probably the company
j felt it their duty to provide for their
proteges in order that they (the
heathens) may remain here.
Wedding Hells.
St. Alban's church was the scene
of a very pretty wedding Tuesday
afternoon, when one of our popular
business men, Mr. E. Thome, was
united for life with Miss Ellen Edith
Homer, The bride was prettily attired in a costume of fawn, with
trimmings of pink, which harmonized with a beautiful bouquet of
wedding flowers, the gift of the
groom. Tho bride was supported
by Miss Lilian Webb, who wore a
becoming costume of fawn, with
blue trimmings, set off by a handsome bouquet of bridal (lowers. Mr.
G. Smart did the honors for the
groom, and Mr. C, II. 11. Potts gave
away the bride. After the nuptial
knot had been duly tied by the Rev.
Geo. Taylor, the bridal party repaired to their future home on
Albert street, where the wedding
feast was partaken of, and iu the
evening the newly-married couple
entertained their friends. Tun Mail

An Amendment to tho Prayer.

bis former pulpit while candidates were
preaching there. He always offered the
closing prayer and after ask ing the Lord
to bless hi*- servant who had broken the
bread of life to His people that dny wns
accustomed to add "and may ho shine
as a star of the first magnitude for ever
and ever." JJut it happened one
Sunday that a very dull preacher occupied the pulpit, and the good old minister was unutterably bored. When it
was time for the prayer he offered tho
usual petition that the Lord would bless
His servant who had addressed the peoplo that day, and—here he paused. His
faith was not strong enough to allow
him to conclude the sentence In the
customary way; so the conscientious
old man added firmly, "And may be

Spring Fashion Has iirouchr Out u ifii:
Assortment in Ute Stores.
Be-eutor the bustle from the limbo of
retirement, in the realm of fashion.
Abused, lampooned, and, as It was suppos-
| ed,  forever  suppressed, It lias reappeared
in   Paris and has almost simultaneously
| arrived   In   the   New   York shops.    Tho
bustle will have a new reign   this spring.
lint it has undergone complete change.
The bustle of It fnt Is no longer a monstrous objoot made of spiral wire, nor is It
an abbreviated hoop skirl with intricate
lacing appendage. It is a hniroloth arrangement not hideously proportioned,
but  graceful in contour.
It is manufactured indifferent forms to
meet th requirements of style and supply nature s deiloioncles. The present
bustle is expressly designed to fulfil the
mission for which an interlining of haircloth was Intended, and more acceptably
facilitates tho hang of the seven-yard-
wido Bkirt.
Fashionable mantna makers have
abolished the use of the interlining, and
as a substitute reeommend tho new
bustle. < Ine of the most, aggressive
styles exhibited is 2i Indies long and
about ' inches wide. Four rolling puffs
begin at the waist, line and extend soven
inches below the waist; to these three
bos plaits are nttttched which reach to tho
bend "I the knee. Et is made of block
moreen and weighs but a few ounces.
Directions for cleansing it are given and
it is predicted that this will be th- popular
one of tho season.
For the woman who desires n slight
building up at the tack, a ami . pad is
made of curled hair or deer I , .*. tho latter is exceedingly ii:..t and !..» use equally appropriate, i ul oftentimes preferred.
These ,ue seml-elrciilar in shape and are
not broader nan *i v ■ inohes aoross, nor
deeper H.,..i three i ■■ four Inches.
Tiie so-called organ plaits, for distributing tiie fulness at the back of the skirt,
still obtain, so organ plaited bustles arc
provided.    The   most     satisfactory    ex-
aiupir Is twelve Inohes long and is composed of live hollow tubes of striped Knc-
Ush horse hair. 1 port an oblong apron
■ r horsehair i hree of tbe org in plaiti are
fastened; surmounting these are two

Its elasticity, and it possoaseB the happy
faculty of springing back into shape .if.'-r

Another style which will appeal to

of haircloth mounted on a plain fi mdo-

long ones nre worn that they shall meet
the stiffness at the bottom of the skirt,
so tho exact length depends upon the
woman's height.
The skirt extend' r which is the greatest
oddity isn bustlo and bin-pad combined.
It is a joint affair of haircloth, with n
long effect in the center and an inflated
.•oil of tho fabric reaching over tho hips
en eooh side,
Thi hip-pad-, which have been largely
adopted both here and abroad are of
slightly different shape from tho original
design, They are orosi ent shape-: and
stuffed with ha r. The points "f the

Both braoeletsand ear-rings are to have
their duy again. The roappoaranos of tho

t»ne little fad in nmbrellos in both
Paris and Berlin Is a very slender handle
in silver or cawed ivory Some very
graceful shapes are in silver gilt enameled
tops. The lorget-me-mit is a very favorite   design,  and the color ol   the enamel
mafhes  the silk  as    in the  Dresden
handles of last year.
Chatelaines nre more popular in  Parli
than ever. Scissors, purses, bon-bon
boxes, whistles, etc,, in gold constitute a
distinct part, of the toilette.
It is rumored that the use of ear-rings
is to be revived. One woman enters this
protest: "I do sincerely hope that women
of today will not often be found willing
to revert to a fashion which Is but a
remnant of barbarism, and that they will
not -"puil the natural beauty of their ears
for the sake of sticking jewels in them.
lfoneo the fashion of ear-rings should he-
come general again, it will only be a
matter of time before the reintroduetion
of those hideously vulgar-looking, lung
appendages, which distorted so many
pretty ears In tbe past. Before any reader has her ears pierced, 1 hope she will
consider that the fashion may bo very
transitory, and that even If the rings nre
not worn, tho mark very seldom disappears: moreover,any weight attached to
the lobe of the ear Is likely to drag It
down and spoil its proper shape."
In the selection of varieties of apples fbr
planting a commercial orchard, the wants
of the market where the fruit is to be
sold requires consideration, In localities
near to llirge towns where usually a quick
and steady market can be found for summer and autumn apples, early varieties
will be found most profitable foi the reason that early varietli s come into bearing
young, are must productive, aud are
handled with less trouble and expense.
Marly sorts are quickly perishable and can-
net, he held over for ful tiro sales as readily
as winter varieties, incase of n glut in the
1 ew varieties of apples have a wide
adaptat'on tor commercial planting. The
intending planter of an orchard can do no
better than consult his neighbors who are
practii .1 fruit growers and find out what
varieties succeed be3t and pay -the moot
dollars with them, Sometimes n variety
with only a. lo :.i reputation known only
within a limited range of territory, suc-
ci i 1- Car better within it- range than nny
ot tho standard sorts. Whore such varieties have been well tested ami can be obtained, plant a fair proportion of them.
As :i rule, It i- belter to purchase nursery
stuck propagated as near as possible other
conditions being equal) tot lie plane where
it is to be finally planted, it sometimes
requires a number of years for young trees
to re over, if they ever do fully, from
abrupt changes in climate and soil, If
trees arc to be procuredfrom a distance it
is better to buy those grown farthest
ta tho north in preference to these grown
tu the south.
Buy nursery stork dire; from tbe
grower when possible, as then* is less likelihood of getting varieties not true to
name Varieties sometimes get unaccountably mixed and mistakes often occur with the most careful nurserymen.
JVhen stock passes through the bands of
one or moie dialers who generally know
little and care less about nan.es, the danger
Is still greater, Insist ,.n receiving tbe
vnrieth s ordered and do not let lhe nursery

for nine times out vt' ten it will be a sort
that nobody cares to know anything

A correspondent states that o pooch tree
Standing near a dwelling was entirely
. uredvf a disease known as "yollowa" by
having  boiling water poured around it.
This fact has been known for many yearn
post, not only m connection with the
fungus w.'ift h produces tho disease known
as the'-yellows" In the peach, but also in
connection with similar diseases in other
trees, whloh are also ihe result of root
fungus The hot. water cools a little bo
Jure reaching the roots, but it Is sufficiently hot when it reaches the root to de*
■troy the fungus without Injuring tho root
tissue. Unfortunately a remedy of thla
kind is sooreoly practicable In largo or-
'hariis or where pooch-growlng is done on
A large scale. For a few trees in small
yards where they are oonvenlont to hot-
water n ngo, no practice can Induce
healthier fruit trees thau an occasional
pouring of hot water around them.
There are two facts to be remembered in
planting : First, thai the tree absorbs i*H
food, not by the larger roots, but by those
small rootlets, or root hairs, which go un-
iio.iied. The larger roots can hardly Ut
oonsldi red as anything more than anchors
to hold the young tree in place. The larger
the rbot the fewer of these root hairs one
Is apt to find, und this Is a parti.il explanation why the'hancos are greater in a small
than in u large tree. Tbe second fact to
remember is that constant ovaporattongoetj
on from the leaves In all plants during the
growing season. This Is especially so
when the icavns are young and soft, and
when the atmosphere is not saturated with
moisture. Of course the application '-f
these principles Is obvious. When a tree
has bad Its root-absorbing surface diminished by removal from the ground and by
destruction of tho root hairs,then its evaporating surface must he correspondingly
diminished, In ortlex to maintain the proper

They Never Change and Are N«*.
The value of finger prints as a means of
Idontiffoation has now been fully proved
and generally accepted, Mr. Francis
Galton, an eminent Englishman of
science, first demonstrated their usefulness and forced tho attention of the Gov-
ernm mt and the public to tho system.
They are now the principal part of the
system bv which criminals are identified
and registered in England. Certain
features of tho Berttllon system of aa*
throp»metrical measurement are there
combined with the finger-print system.
But li new and much more important
use of fingur prints is now proposed.
Criminals, after all, are not tbe most Interesting and numerous class of the community, and as long as tho question oon-
corns mjy them it is not of the first ira-
portan :e. J tut when it i.s suggested that
■every aitlzeu who has a bank account
should accompany his signature to a
olio> k with a Finger or a thumb print the
mast >r becomes one of universal iuterost,
Tin present proposal Is in short that a
linger >r thumb print should accompany
the s'.^n iture wherever tho authenticity
of the ■ itter Is of any Importance, Probably '.h-i chum!) would be used in making
the Impression, as ir is larger and has a
more marked individuality than the
fingers. >>o two lingers in the world, it
is reasonably certain, arealike, but it Is

|ha!,,l, rolls tim bulb slightly on the Inked
'shin aud rolls it again on the card, iiv ob-
tains a see mil set of impressions from the
lingers alone, this time rolling each '>n'\
The same process is gone through with
the otltor hand.
l-'or business purposes, of course, a
■mal neat and handsome apparatus
wonld lie devised for Inking the thumb.
It w Mid include some preparation for
,rapidly removing the Ink. It would bo

It, will here be well to give some account "f tho lltiger-priut system as it Is in

»n.i thumbs, Tho papillary rldgeswkich
•brer tho palms uf the hands form at
this point patterns of well-marked form
and «,f a curl,ins variety and shape.
Of these patterns Impressions and Imprints can bo takon on paper or cardboard
by menus of printer's ink, so as to show
the directions,terminations and junctions
of the ridges with much greater olournes*
than   can   bo   seen on  tbe   bund   itself.
Theso imprints nan be examined through
a lens or microscope,   or unn bo enlarged
to any size by moans of photography.
The patterns and tho ridges, or lines of
which they are oiimpnsed, possess two
qualities which make thom of absolute
efllcaoy In deriding questions of Identity.
'One I, that, In ovary individual they retain their peculiarities absolutely un-
ohaogeable throughout life. Tho other
is thill In different individuals they show
an inlinlte variety of forms and peculiarities.
The persistence of the ridges and patterns has been proved by the oxumlnutlon
of imprints takon from the fingers of
various persons after Intervals of years
and minutely compared In every detail.
The oasefl taken extend over the whole of
life, from infancy to extreme old age.
in all the cases examined them was
only ono Instance in which a minute detail was found to vary—a case where a
ridge which bifurcated in an impression
takon at the Hire of two and a half years
was found to have united at the ago of
lifteen. In all the cases where the liner
prints of adults taken ;it different ages
have been compared the correspondence
has bean found tn bo exact,
In studying tho variety in the flngor
prints of different individuals account
lias to be taken not only of tho general
form of the pattern and of tho number
of ridges between fixed joints, but also
of al! the minutiae appearing in each
linger print—breaks, junctions, bifurcations) err. These are equally persistent
with the general form of tne pattern.
Mr, Galton has calculated that the
chance of two finger-prints being alike  h-i
less than 1 ill 8*1,000,000,000. If tho
number of the human race he reckoned
at 1,000,000,000, there Is a smaller chance
than one to four that the print of one
linger of any person should lie exactly
like that of the linger of any other person in the whole wurld.
The question how the Anger-prints nro
to be used for the purpose of tracing Identity will at once suggost Itself, It is easy
to turn to a name in an alphabetical Index, lint what is to guide a hank cashier
or a detective among innumerable Auger-
prints? The question may seem a hard
one. hut apparently it is not.
Mr. eialton assures us that the Anger-
prints can be classified in such a way
that to Identify a newly taken print with
one In a directory is a simple matter for
a inan of ordinary intelligence. In a
directory of 2,0*1.3 finger-prints tho average
time required by himself to find a print
hns beon three minutes.
The system of classification Is already
lu u,o in England and In India. It is
neeessa.-y to mala, the sub-olassificatlons
more numerous as a directory increases In
si/.'. There are many Ingenious ways of
doing this, winch it would !>e impossible
to go Into her-, but it, will lie interesting
to give the general principles on which
the , las intention i.s based.
Every Anger-print is assigned to ono of
throe types of pattern-,namely, "nrohes,"
"loons'1 and "whorls." In nil digits
the ridges immediately adjoining t!i,
third joint run across the lingers, while
those towards the ti;, follow tho form
ol th ■ nail In a rounded arch, bill In the
space left at the center of the bulb tho
ridge- have various curvatures forming
the pattern of the finger-print. It is
therefore upon theoenterat the surface „*'
your.top finger joint that tho system of
Identification depends.
It is not impossible that some orlmlunls
cut , r burn t ho surface of this particular
part of the filler. It will iie uoonssary,
however, to perform the operation on
every finger, and it may he a deterrent
to know that the sensibility to pain at,
this spot is exquisite, moreover that ti: iy
would create anew means of Identifying
Now to explain the meaning of tho
curious words used r.o describe tho three
great classes of finger tips. The pattern
is an aroh when the ridges in the center
run from one side to the other of tho
bulb without making,any backward turn
or twist. It is a l.i.i]) when there i.s a
single backward turn hut no twist. It, is
a whorl when there is a turn through at
least one circle or a double turn in the
form of a duplex spiral.
In rending oft' the patterns and translating them  Into the symbols   .Mr.   Galton
takes the prints of the ten lingers In tin
following order: The first, second and
third finger of tho right hand, the first,
second and third finger of the left hand,
the thumb and little finger of the right,
hand, the thumb and little linger of tin
left hand.
In the directory nn aroh is marked as
"n," a loop as *'I" and a whorl as "w.
Thus . the ten fingers at a men may be
described ns alw, all: wl, 11. But to give
greater variety to the formula he distill
gulshes on the forefingers betwoon loop,,
coining from the radical or thumb side of
the haml, and loop- coming from the
ulnar or little linger side, the former
being marked "r"  and the latter "u."

Plan of Reorganization. Considered by the Council.
The Question of Funds Is the Only
Hindrance to its Adopt ion.
Redutetl Estimates.
A special meeting of the Municipal
Council was held on Thursday evening
for the purpose of considering the question of reorganizing the Qredepartment
A full board was present, with the exception of Aid. Sinclair.
The report of the Fire Wardens was,
again read, and the Oouncll went into
Aid. Plantr* though! tho suggestions
were good, providing the Council could
see their way clour to defray the expenses connected with the arrangement,
and every alderman present favored tho
men being paid, but could not see where
the money to do s,, was to come from,
because by taking it from the general
revenue meant neglecting so much street
Aid. Morton figured the cost ns follows;
Four horses f 500
Two men iu tfo per in,null   I860
Thirty men atSgOa month lor drill    360
Thirty men nt f I per lionr for lirt-s (iivenu'e
fires eight lasting three hours]    "20
Feed for horses per year    7-0
Sslury of Chief    200
Hose wagon    800
Miscellaneous     Io0
Totnl flioo
Aid. Morton said he had not inclu led
a chemical engine or a new lire engine,
as he did not, think the city wus prepared to go to this expense at present,
although he thought tin- figures given
could be reduced about one-half. In the
first place, the city lias one horse already, which they also pay a driver to
look after; and then at present they
have one paid man looking after the Fire
Hall; und he advance,! the idea that
these two men he practical Bremen, un,l
by purchasing two more horses (rucking
three altogether), stabling them in the
Fire Hall, and putting the two men in
charge, the expenses could be considerably curtailed. One of tbe men with a
team of horses could always be on duty,
while one man ami horse could he doing
city work—one man to go out in the
morning and the other in the afternoon.
It would be necessary to have a hosecart
that would carry 100U feet of hose. Then
he thought the drill could be reduced to
25c, which would In all reduce the estimate one-half; but be did uot think the
pay at a lire could he reduced, us in this
case men well earned their money.
Aid. Martell thought the City Council
should have a voice in the selection of
officers, and
Aid. Planta thought the expense entailed by adopting these suggestions were
out of the way at the present time, and
wanted them referred to the Fire Wardens to bring in recommendations.
Aid. Wilson admitted the suggestions
were good, but all that prevented them
being adopted was the necessary funds.
He thought also a by-law for the purpose should be submitted to the rate-
pavers before adoption.
Aid. Westwood favored Aid, Morton's
scheme, but would like to Bee the figures
reduced. In response Aid. Morton furnished the following re,bleed estimate:
Thirty aettve members at ?i per hourfaver-
age tires eight III lliree bouss eicll,  ? 720
Thirty members for drill „t 2fio, each per
drill, two drills per month    ISO
Feed of two horses    wo
Two men nt |85 u mouth   Kifio
Salary of Chlel    WO
Total $3070
There is a grant of $600 against that
amount; but there are horses to purchase and a hosecart, not to mention a
chemical engine and another new lire
Aid, Planta thought paying tiremeu
for active service might induce the starting of fires.
Aid. Wilson said the only way for the
matter to be accomplished wns by putting a special rate ou for the purpose.
Mayor Davison wanted to know what
Aid. Morton would do for horses for the
-engine, and received tbe reply that they
would have to retain the present system
of obtaining horses.
Aid, Morton further said the actual additional expense would only be $1010
beyond what is being paid at present.
If it cost $71)0 to purchase horses and a
hose cart, the company have already $600
toward such expense. There appeared to
be a general feeling that the Council
should have a voice in the appointment
of the Chief.
The committee rose, reported progress
and obtained leave to sit again.
Aid. Wilson Anally moved that tbe
city take over the company on Ibe basis
laid down. Seconded by Aid, McDonald
anil carried.
On motion, the Fire Wardens were in-
KtntOted to lay the result before the lire-
tnen's committee nnd  bring iu a report.
Council then adjourned,
Coal Prospects.
It IB pleasant to learn that tin* prospects In Protection shall have, so far,
turned out satisfactory, The main slope
running toward the "mead,,us" is now
in .excellent eoal; and after passing
through a huge fault, the diagonal has
struck a rich field; while another which
has been started toward Qabrlnla island
is in good coal; so that things at present
look much brighter fur tbe company, so
far as coal in sight. Is concerned, than
they have for some time.
On (iahriola island tbe bore on the
north end is now nt a slnndsiill awaiting another machine that will go to a
greater depth; while tl, the south end
the bore is now down close on to 510 feet,
A small portion of stock has been disposed of, but no more will be sold until
the coal is reached.
The New V. C. Co, are turning their
attention to what is known us tiie
"Harewood estate" in the hope of finding an extension of the famous Wellington coal. I* is generally believed that
eventually some very reach senilis of
icoal will he uncovered out that way.
There is no truth in tbe statenienl,
•contained in tho 13. 0, Journal, that a
change is contemplated in the business
