The finding of the (lend hotly of
Louis St irk, the mulatto rancher,
near lhe Nanaimo River Falls, on
Feb. 27, 1895, will be fresh in the
minds of most of our readers. The
evidence was to the effort that 1 lie
body was found at the foot of a high
bluff near deceased's residence in
the Cranberry district by Ephraim
Hodgson, who brought tbe news to
this cily; that deceased had a cut1
over one eye from which there had
been u considerable flow of blood;
that a leg was' broken just above
the ankle; that on the night before
be hud jailed at Hodgson's house
and had left for his own, not far
distant, after dark, carrying a pit,
lamp, and the presumption was, the
wind having blown out the light,
he wandered the road with the result above indicated.
Tuesday night, upon the information of F. MoFarland, Constable
McLean arrested Hodgson  at the!
B, it N. Extension mine, where he
was  at  work.    The accused manifested no surprise at his arrest—in
fact, said lie knew what MoFarlane
bad been around the mines for and
expected his arrest. He was brought
to  the provincial  jail, and   at  31
o'clock yesterday was arraigned be-1
fore Mr. M. Hate, J, P., when, at the!
request of Chief Stewart, a remand
was granted until llie 20th inst. to
obtain  further   evidence,   it  being
understood  that  tbe  case can bei
called at any lime before that dale
if the prosecution is ready.
MoFarlane, the informant, is a|
private detective in whose hands
llie case was placed.
Wlnit Ilo the Tories Expect to (lain
Hy the protests against the three
Liberal members in ibis province?
If Ihey are looking for a " saw off "
with Victoria and a compromise
allowing all tbe members to retain
their seats, we are of opinion they
have erred most signally. Supposing the three Liberal members were
unsealed, who doubts bu! they
would all be re-elected by majorities multiplied by two, three or
even live? The people are with ihe
Liberal party. In Victoria a new
election would defeat Messrs. Prior
and Earle beyond a doubt, because
in ihat cily the people aie not less
Liberal in sentiment than elsewhere
in the province, but there were influences at work in favor of the
Conservative candidates at Victoria
at Ibe last election which would
have no force whatever in a fresh
election. before all this trouble is
over, we predict there will be a
"solid-six" delegation sent from
this province to support the Liberal
party now in power at Ottawa.

The Willana'a Narrow Escape.
The Alaska Searchlight of the lst
says: "Steamer Willapa arrived in
port Wednesday afternoon after a
delightful trip of four days, loaded
wilh freight and forty-two passengers. What promised to be a serious
accident occurred about fifty miles
soulh of Nanaimo by tbe steamer
running upon an ugly, bidden rock
at low tide, slopping suddenly,
causing a great shock and fright to
the passengers. As the ship struck
it lurched heavily to the starboard
and came nearly toppling over.
Through the perfect self-possession
of Captain Roberts and excellent
discipline of the crew order was
soon restored, the ship righted and,
after banging upon tbe obstruction
for two hours, was floated off by
the tide, hardly the worse for the
collision. Many of tbe passengers |
spoke in highest terms of Captain
Roberts, his officers and crew, and
tbe staunch little vessel he com-
rounds. All had a royal good time
and no doubt many of them will
return again."   ^_^
The latest novelty in   wheeling
circles is an electric bicycle.    The
bicycle has a   storage   battery,  a
motor, and   a  switch-board.    The,
battery, which is attached  to  the:
bars below the saddle, only weighs'
1*1 pounds, and the total weight of
the wheel is only (14 pounds.    It is
claimed that the machine is capable of very great, speed, and i.s particularly  advantageous in ascending hills and riding over rough roads.

Canneries Now  Have More Salmon
Than They Can Handle.
Tbe run of salmon Sunday night
was very satisfactory, the catch of
the" boats in the river averaging
over one hundred each. At the
mouth of the river, the catch is
stated to have averaged 125 to the
boat and some individual catches
went as high as 400 fish, though 191
is probably the high boat in the
vicinity of the city.
It is stated on the authority of
the customs officials at Blaine that
between the lst and the 7th insts.
122,000 sockeyes were brought to
the different canneries from the
traps, and the total number of salmon caught in these traps up till
Friday night last was 277,000, the
value of which is placed at ii"48,000.
Monday and Monday night the
boats at the mouth of the river averaged 150 fish each, and as a result
of the catch most of the canneries
on the lower part of the river have
more salmon than they can handle,
and it is reported the price has
dropped to 10c. per fish, and even 5c.
Farther up the river, however, the
catches were not quite so large, the
average being abont 75. As an example of how some of the canneries
were supplied with sockeyes Monday night, it might he mentioned
that there were 45,000 salmon on
Malcom & Windsor's wharf at
It is reported that last week over
500cohoe salmon were taken in the
traps, and fishermen consider thts
as a sure sign that the sockeye run
will not last much longer.—Columbian.
Convict-Cut Stone.
The Stonecutters of San Francisco
are up in opposition tn the Midwinter Monument which has been just
finished and put in place on ground
where the fair had been held. This
opposition is not because of the
monument itself, but because the
stone was cut by convicts at the
Folsoin Stale Prison.
The Stouecutters' Union claims
that the base and cap upon which
the true statue stands were shipped
to that city at the same time that
the stone for the Grant monument
came, but the opposition of the
trades unions to the placing of the
Grant stone in the park hadachill-
ing effect upon the Midwinter Fair
Commissioners, and as a result the
stone was boxed up until the storm
blew over, when it was resurrected
and put in place.
The vigilance of the stonecutters
did not abate, and they watched
the movements until the discovery
was made that the convict-dressed
stone was put in place. Hence their
indignation at the acts of the Midwinter Fair Commissioners.
"White Cap" Atrocities.
The Indiana White Caps have
kept on for years almost unchecked
with atrocities on helpless victims
much worse than an average murder. The latest case occurred last
week at Modesto, near Blooming-
ton, Ind., when the house of Mrs.
Netlie Christiiuii was broken into
by some thirty White Caps, who
hung her by tiie wrists to a tree in
a most agonizing position, beat her
with switches uiilil she became unconscious, threw her furniture into
the road, and burned the house.
There was nothing definite against
her, and of course the fiends will get
off, as every one will be afraid to
testify against them. In the west,
which President Cleveland thinks
is so badly in need of •' missionary
work," the lives of such men, if they
could ever get a footing at all, would
not be worth an hour's purchase.
The Attempt to Kill an Editor.
James 11. Barry, editor of The
Star, was congratulated by his
friends yesterday afternoon on the
fact that he was alive. About 10:30
o'clock in the morning he was assaulted by David Neagle, the slayer
of David S. Terry, and only the
coolness of tbe editor prevented an
encounter that would doubtlass
have ended in a tragedy. Neagle
drew his revolver, but Barry, who
was unarmed, stood his ground, and
dared Neagle to kill him. The
editor made no movement against
his opponent, who, after warning
Barry not to attack him again in
the columns of bis paper, withdrew
with some friends. Thc affair
caused great excitement throughout
thc city.—S. F. Examiner.
A letter received from Archbishop
Langevin, now in Rome, says he

Preliminary Meeting: Last Evening-
OnTeers Eleeted—Request to
Vancou ver Committee.
Of the executive committee appointed at the recent mass meeting
at the Opera House to conduct the
anti-Chinese campaign in this city
and district, the following members
were present at the called meeting
held in the Council chamber last
evening: Mayor Davison, A. Wilson,
R. Duggan, Thos. Keith, C.Wilson,
M. Woodburn, Jas. Young, Dr. W.
W. Walkem, M. P. P., Tully Boyce,
Ralph Smith and H. Carroll.
Organization was effected by the
election of the following officers:
Chairman—Mayor Davison.
Secretary—Ralph Smith.
Treasurer—Arthur Wilson.
Finance Committee—Jas. Young,
C. Wilson and C. E. Stevenson.
A motion prevailed that the secretary request the Vancouver committee not to circulate the petition
to the Dominion Government until
Nanaimo and Victoria have an opportunity to discuss the preamble.
The meeting adjourned to meet
at the call of the secretary.
The private circular of I. Steuartgives
the receipts of coal at this port for the
lirst seven months of 1896 at 721,300
tons, against 755,700 tons for the same
time last year, ami says: " Since the
last issue of my monthly circular the
strike at the Australian coal mines lias
been settled, all the mines being now in
full operation, and coal from there is
selling for shipment at lower prices than
ever before known to the coal trade.
This of course assures to the consumers
low-prieed fuel for many months to come.
English anthracite coal is also being
offered for shipment at very low rates."
On account of the strike at Newcastle,
New South Wales, but little coal has
been shipped from there since lastspring.
The Pacific Mail company has to keep
a supply of coal at Honolulu for their
China steamers, ami being unable to get
any from New South Wales, they have
sent their steamer Aztec to Nanaimo
for a cargo of coal. Their steamer, San
Mateo, which haB just undergone extensive repairs, will also come to Nanainio
for a cargo of coal for Guatemala.
A Side Issue.
Editor Mail: I see by a late issue of
the Free Press that Dr. Walkem is liable
to get into trouble with some of his constituents, judging from the questions he
is asked. Now, this is very ungrateful
on the part of the "dear constituents"
whom the doctor has done so much for
and whose welfare he takes such a lively
interest in. The Government allows the
doctor only a beggarly $000 per annum
for his very valuable time in lookiug
after the varied ami diverse interests of
that section of British Columbia entrusted to his fatherly care; therefore
the aforesaid "dear constituents" should
not object when the doctor gets a chance
to turn an honest penny, and especially
when thc double object is accomplished
of earning bis little ib and declaiming
iu stentorian tones his great love and
devotion to his "dear constituents."
Give the doctor a chance, and he will
tioat to the front, sure.
John McCavill, a resident of Nelson
Island, was seriously burned recently as
the result of his accidentally setting lire
to a keg of powder. It appears that
night overtook him while out in a boat,'
and he determined to put up for the
night at a convenient and unoccupied
shack which he knew to contain a mattress, lie made a mistake in the build
ing, however, and after lighting a match,;
he threw it down and, as it very quickly
proved, into a keg of powder. He was
thrown down and badly burned, but re-1
tiiined sufficient strength and conscious-
ness to enable him to reach the shack he
desired. He had been there for three
days without food or water when discovered by Dr. Brandon of New Whatcom while on a holiday trip, who brought
him to this city in a sloop on Sunday
last. He has since been lying very low
ai the hospital.

work in union with Japan," said
the Chinese statesman, "we must
make a proposal for a fixed ratio.
But we shall fail unless Europe approves. England could settle the
question if she wished, but she has
her own interests."

Sir Mackenzie Bowell left fur Toronto
yesterday. Beforo leaving he had a
"chut with Sir Charles Tupper in reference to the coming session. Sir Mackenzie expects to be in his place in tne
upper house, but whether he will lead
the opposition there lie has not determined, although Sir Charles is uot anxious for him to assume that position.
Sir Mackenzie's inclination is to quietly
drop out of active politics and consequently until such time as he has consulted his friends he will not announce
his decision.

Halifnx, Aug. 7—At the nomination
and election of Minister of finance
Fielding he spoke nt length on questions
of the day. He said it had never been
his practice to endeavor to please the
electors by lavish promises. "Be slow

good motto for men in public life, he
would only promise to do nis utmost to
protect the interests of his constituents
and of the Dominion nt large. Touching upon the French domination ery,
Mr. Fielding said there was not the
shadow of cause for alarm. The promotion of a French-Canadian to the
position of premier was instead of an occasion for alarm, from one point of
view n cause for rejoicing.

Phillip S. Abbott, of Milwaukee, who
met his death on Monday by tailing
from a cliff, lias been recovered and
will be taken east to Boston for inter-
ment to-morrow. When Mr. Abbott met
his death he was making the lirst ascent of Mount Lcfroy by its western
slope. All went well and safely until
perhaps within 200 feet of tile summit,
when they reached the final cliffs. Here
a rock chimney was to he ascended, In
der his Instructions the party lining m
a safe position, unroped while he made
the ascent in order to lix a rope bv
whicli the others could ascend. It is
probable that his handhold or foothold
gave way, and he fell a distance of forty
feet, landing on the snow slope nt the j
foot of the chimney. On this he descended some nine hundred feet, where
he stopped on a narrow plateau above a
second precipice. The ropes having fallen with him, the other members of the
party were compelled to use the utmost
care in descending to where he lay in
the very line they hnd travelled. He wns
breathing, but obviously unconscious
when they reached him. An endeavor
was made to bring him down, but he
expired in n few moments, and they |
were obliged to temporarily leave the
body where he died, at n point over ten
thousand feet above sea level.

Lancaster, Ta, Aug. 10.—A runaway
trolley car ou the Columbia and Donegal railway hist night killed seven per
sons and injured fifty more.
The ear wus returning from Chiek-
ies Park to Columbia when the
brake rigging broke whilo descending a
steep grade. Abuut 00 passengers were
ou board who became panic stricki n,
when they saw the car was beyond control. The hill wns a long one, anil every
moment the runaway gathered additional speed until it is estimated by those
aboard that the cur was running fully
a mile n minute, when it struck a sharp
curve and left the track close to a turnpike running parallel wilh the trolley
road, struck against a tree and th-u
toppled over into a deep ditch, being
turned upside down.
Those who escaped injury or were
only slightly injured crowded from the
wrecked ear covered with the blood of
their more unfortunate fellow-passengers, and at once the work of rescue began. The shrieks of the wounded and
the pleadings of those more seriously '-n-
jm-ed to be killed to put tin in oat o£
tholr misery were most pitiable. To nd 1
to the horror of the situation thi re was
no light of any kind until some time lifter the wreck.
Tlic first body taken out was thnt of
Henry Smith, one of the iron workers
of Columbia, who had been instantly
killed by a piece of wood whicli pierced
his head. Adam Fochlinger, the mo'.or-
lnan. was found a few seconds later,
having been crushed to di ath. Near
him was Wm. Pinkerton, a Columbia
boy, who had met a similar fate. Chief
Burgess P. P. Hess, of Columbia, who
had been riding ou the rear platform,
jumped a few seconds before the car
left the track and his lifeless body was
lmiiil about a quarter of a mile away,
his neck having been broken. William
Metzger. of Columbia, had both his legs
crushed sn badly that they had to be
amputated and he died a few hours afterwards. W. .1. Ludlow, of Senbrlght,
N. .1., manager of lhe Atlantic Fish Co.,
was so badly injured that he died shortly after being removed to the Columbia
hlspitlll. Miss Elsie N. Fitzgerald, of
Lancaster, had her left Bide and head
crushed and died at (! o'clock this morn

monument for her grave.
The military trial of Captain John
Good has beeu concluded, but the court

During the trial of a man named H.
G. Rhodes, nu employe of the government, he testified that he sealed a fence
surrounding tin* government works and

Amval and Departure of Mails
Montreal, Aug. 7,—Referring to
Archbishop Longcvln's communication
to Le Croix of Paris, the Cultivntcur,
Mr. Tarte's organ, says: "This prelate,
whose lack of discretion and judgment
has caused him to make such deplorable
blunders in bis own country lo the detriment of the Catholic and French
cause has evidently not been made any
wiser by recent events. He belongs lo
the class of those who do not wish to.
or cannot lenrn anything Mgr. Lan-
geviu told Le Croix things wl ich lire
absolutely contrary to fact. To men
tion bul one only: It is false that Mr.
Laurier ever pronounced in favor of the
principle of neutral schools. We suppose
that a bishop is no more allowed than
any other person to misrepresent the ip-
Inions of a public man. Now Mgr. Lnn-
gevin knows thai over nnil over again
the prime minister has expressed himself in a sense that can leave no pine
for ambiguity that he is In favor of religious teaching in school* he has said
so in twenty speeches. We wish to protest for all men of good faith nnl honor against the unjust insinuations
■signed by Mgr. Lnngevln. 'i'he
Archbishop of St. Boniface knows
Mr. Laurier is no Freemason. Fortunately Mgr. Lnngevln represents himself nnd no other in the deplorable attitude he continues to hold. We inquest our fellow-citizens of nil origins
not to lay the responsibility of his
words and of his acts upon the Cnth-
the combined efforts of his partners
olios of Mnnltolm. The secular clergy
of Manitoba were almost unanimously
opposed to the elevation of Mgr. Lnngevln tn the nroliopiseopnl see of St.
Boniface. We trust that nt the Vatican he will not succeed in lending anyone Into error."

Tragic Death of a Seattle Prospector.
Port Townsend, Aug. Ill—Tho particulars of n tragic diath of a prospector
mimed Kdwur.l Kcunnli, of Seattle, in
the crevice ol a glacier iu llie Cook Inlet country, were received on the ste-un-
or Willapa from Alaska. .Next to being
burled alive or burned at thc stake a
more horrible death could scarcely be
realized. At tho bottom of nu ice crack
eighty feet below the surface, solidly
jammed between two walls of ice, Ken*

one hour and ten minutes, when his
voice was chilled by death.
A parly ol nine prospectors wero

both shoulders, when he and the next

through the thin contlng of Ice and disappeared in the chasm below. Their
wild cries barely prevented some of the
others from meeting with a similar fate.
Tin* gun fell crosswnys four or five foot
below the surface and enabled one of
the men to be rescued. But the other
prospector, Konnnli, fell over seventy
foot and was tightly jammed between
the diverging walls of ice. His voice
could be distil ctly hoard as he directed
the movements of his would-be rescuers
in their frubles offorls to raise him out
of tho onlliin of ice. Blankets wore torn
np and tied into long strands and Ken-
null fastened ono ond around his body,
but tho force of the fall had jammed
him so lightly between the perpendicular
walls of ice, and the chill so h numbed
his body and exhausted his vitality that
could not raise him from the frozen
Grndunlly his voico became weaker

preservation grew feebler, and ono hour

Cape Town, Aug. 7.—Details have
been received hero of the decisive victory won on Wednesday by TIKI British
Hoops, comprising Col, l'luinnier's column ovor a native force estimated to
have numbered from 5.000 to T.iKHl men.
The latter fought most desperately and
bravely, charging up within a tew
yards of the British rapid-firing guns.
About 300 Mntabele warriors wero slain
during the engagement, which lasted
several hours, and the loss of the British included Major Kershaw, Lieut.
liervoy. four sergeants and about HO
men killed, and six olliccrs, several noncommissioned olliccrs and about &0 men
wounded, nccordin- to the ttnOlliclal figures.
The Matabeies nnd allies wero commanded by the big chiefs. Sokombeo nnl
UmblgulUS, and were divided into five
hnpis, or regiments, each of ovor LOW!
men. well supplied with arms aud ammunition.
At (i o'clock on Wednesday morning
a force of about 700 men, whites and
natives, cavalry, infantry and artillery,
an under British ottioers. marched to
L'.'.dugulii valley. The white infantry,
commanded by Capt. Berosford, with
two screw gnus and a Maxim rapid-fire
gun, wore detached to make n detour bo-
hind some hills and thon to take n position from whicli the valley could be shelled.
It had previously boon reported by
scouts that the enemy, iu strong force,
was encamped in the valley preparing
for a forward movement of importance
upon the British position. The main
body of the British troops was halted,
while Capt. Borcsford's detachment,
with the heavy guns referred to. wns
making its way to the position designnt-
I ed for the artillery to occupy.
While this movement  was being ex-
i ectltcd and the guns being moved over a
small  isolated    kopje,     the    Matabeies
mndo a sudden and determined rush at
Capl. Borcsford's command. There was
