Report of special committee re Beaumont  property.    Aid Wilson said the

i read.   Aid Morton seconded and motion
carried.
|    Two letters dated April 10, 18!)3,  and
j .May 9, 1808, were read by tlie clerk.
Aid. Wilson  said these letters were
borne out by tlie minutes of the Council,
Aid McDonald asked if there was any
reason (or ihe Council to  change its
opinion.
The Mayor had not heard ofanything.
Die deeds were all ready, but Mr. Beaumont wants a rebaic ol nis luxe* for all
Ibe time.
Aid .Morton said, according to the correspondence the mat ter hud been settled ;
the present Council cannot override the
action of previous Councils, He would

to pay the taxes from 1SU3. Aid. Wilson secjnded and it was carried,
DKKKltKL'II   BUSINESS.
Ue communication from W. J. Dowler:
Aid Wilson s. i i our local representative hud the matter already iu hand,
ami lie would move that we endorse the
resolution of thelCity Conncil of Victoria.   Aid Bradley seconded,
Aid .Morton thought the Council
should embrace the opportunity, now
that this railway question was eoniinc
up, of representing the interests of Nanaimo. Something Bhould be added to
lhe resolution respecting a railway from
Nanaimo to Allierni. and bring it before
I the Government.
Aid I'lanta said at tlie meeting tomor-
j row night some action would tie taken,
I hut the matter before the Council was a
i Provincial matter, whilst the project of
I a railway to Alberni was purely local.
Aid McDonald thought it would be
II to ask the Provincial Government
t themselves, but, as Aid Morton
said, we might add a rider to the
resolution.
Aid Bradley said a meeting hold in
the city had nothing to do with the resolution from Victoria, ft was not of
tbe same nature. Perhaps we might
have to ask Victoria to help us.
Aid Morton saiil in view of tlie meeting toinororw night, it might be well to
lay this over until next Monday evening. They would then [be iu a better
position to judge, and lie would move as
an amendment that the subject lay over
until next .Monday.
Aid Wilson agreed to the amendment
and withdrew liis motion. Aid Sinclair
seconded, aud it was carried.
Re communication from Vi. Skene:
Aid Bradley asked if it was the same
scheme advocated liy the gentlemen
from Vancouver, {who wero here last
weak?
The Mayor said this communication
waa all the information we had on the
subject, one came from the Board of
Trade und llie otlier from the city council of Victoria.
On motion of Aid .Sinclair and Morton
the communication was received und
fyled.
NKW  BUSINESS,
Aid McDonald drew atttention to the
electric lamp opposite the Post Office
stating that the crossing was shaded,
in I thought the lamp should be turned,
lie moved, seconded by Aid Sinclair, that
the attention of tlie lighting committee
be culled to the matter.
Aid Wilson thought some attention
should also be given to the pole. It was
in u dangerous position. Supposing n
horse took fright and run tiwuv, it was
in the way. Speaking about electric
light and telephone poles generally, he
thought H was time some action was
taken, many of these poles were a pub-
lie nuisance, lie wonld like the lighting
committee to make some reuommenda*
| tion.   Tlie motion was curried.
Aid Wilson asked permission to bring
in a bv-law re real estate tax, Hes ated
Ihat he had lieen asked hy Several parties
who liad already paid their taxes, about
i this   matter.    'There   were some  who

and passed its first and second readings,! years, and as they hnve contribnt-
and the Council resolved into com mlttee en to the eninvment of tlie citizp--s
of tlie whole.
After being read a first and second
time the coinmittee rose. This by-law
was reported complete and passed its
tnird reading, and on motion, it was
ordered to come up at the special meeting.
Aid Planta mentioned a matter respecting the providing of a stove, etc.,
lor tlie use of the grave digger at the
cemetery, and also some needed repairs
to the shed, and moved that a stove and
littings be procured and that tlie repairs
be effected.   Seconded and carried.
The Mayor drew the attention of the
Council to tlie proposed visit to this Province of tlie Hon. I. Tarte, Minister of
Public Works, and Hon. Mr. Davies,
.Minister of .Murine and Fisheries. Other
cities had taken the matter up, anil lie
thought the city of Nanaimo should also
take action in conjunction with the-Board
of Trade and arrange a suitable reception
for these Federal ministers.
Aid Planta suggested that an invitation bo sent to these gentlemen, and
that a committee be appointed.
Aid Morton moved, seconded by Aid
Sinclair, that an invitation be sent asking these gentlemen to visit .Nanainio.
Carried.

Robert McFiirlane, passenger manager
of the Dominion Line, says that the new
Steamer Canada will run to Boston during the winter, the company having
icen unable to make arrangements with
the Governmenl for the currying of the
mails It is understood that the usual
subsidy of $25,000 was offered the company, but that they declined the offer

cables that there has been no ruin anywhere in the famine districts during
Ihe past week, and that test relief work
huve   begun   in mosl of   the   districts.
by giving open air concerts during
tbe summer, it is Imped that tho.
citizens will turn out in strong
force on this occasion. The management are desirous of procuring a
supply of the latest compositions
and appeal to the generosity of the
people generally to support them.

Bryan's Brave Words.
Lincoln, Neb., Nov. 0.—Mr. Bryan today gave out the following: "To the
bimetallists of the country:—Conscious
that millions of hearts are" suddened by
my temporary defeat, I beg to offer u
word of hope and encouragement. No
cause ever had supporters more brave,
earliest and devoted than those who'
huve espoused the cause of bimetallism.-
They have foualit from conviction, and
have fought with the zeal whioh conviction inspires. Events will prove
whether they are right or wrong. Having done their duty as they saw it, they
have nothing to regret.
"The Republican candidate has been
heralded as the advance agent of prosperity. Ifhis policies bring real prosperity to the American people, thoso
who opposed liim will share in his prosperity. If, on the other hand, his policies prove an injury to the people generally, those of his supporters who do not
belong to the office-holding class, or to
the privileged classes, will suffer in common with those who opposed him. Tho
friends of bimetallism have not been
vanquished, they have simply been
overcome. They believe that tiio gold
standard is a conspiracy of the money
changers against the welfare of tne
human race and until convinced of their
error they will continue the welfare
against it.

Catarrh Means Danger.
Because if unchecked it may lead directly to consumption, Catarrh is
caused by impure blood. This fact is
fully established. Therefore, it is useless to try to cure catarrh by outward
applications or inhalants, The true
wuy to cure catarrh is to purify the
blood. Hood's Sarsaparilla, the great
blood purifier, cures catarrh hy its power
to drive oula.ll impurities from the blood.
Thousands of people testify that they
have been perfectly and permanently
cnred of catarrh by Hood's Sarsaparilla-

II.
On the evening of the day
.after the funeral, Rachel was sitting with her two sons in the
scantily furnished parlor (which
in the night also served for the
Ill-others' bedroom
upon the piano. J-Sarucli, who
always loved to hear bis mother
play, sat with his hand under his
ohin,# gazing tit her with affectionate solicitude, while David,
liko the spoiled child lie was, was i
pulling his feet up under him '
and grumbling at the lateness of
the supper. The great iron stove I
in the corner kept up its steady :
roar, and shot a.tongue of flame
,out of its draught-hole whenever
the door was opened. A dozen
logs of beech-wood were piled up
under it, perspiring moisture,;
.and spreading a not unpleasant
fidor of singed bark through the j
room. An axe, with which Bu- i
pitch had been splitting kindling,
lay across the block; for outside
it was so cold that an ungloved
hand stuck to the door-knob if it
unwarily seized it, and an unprotected nose would be in dan- i
ger of freezing. Two tallow-
candles, in brightly polished
pewter candlesticks, diffused a
dim light about the piano, leaving the rest ofthe room in grateful dusk. As the same vague
illumination fell upon Rachel's
face it softened the lines of sorrow and cure which the years
had furrowed, and only the noble
courage, strength, and devotion
■which dwelt in her soul shone
put, with a gentle radiance.
'Mother,' said Baruch, drawing her head backward and kissing her, 'how beautiful you arc'.'
'Beautiful, my boy?' she repeated, sadly, 'Well, I am glad
if I look beautiful to you.'
She ran   her fingers over the
oittcer, in a
nesslike lone, 'hud, as a mechanic, the right of residence in the
city of Odessa. But, now that

Rachel stood as one  stunned,
gazing   helplessly    beforo   her,
j while   tho   officer   began   in a
monotonous   voice   to mumble
rapidly the contents ofthe docu
ment.      She   heard   dimly the
mention of certain awful penalities in   case   of disobedience,
and   ber   blood   ran cold.    But
forty-eight hours! How was it
[possible  for   her  to tear up in
forty-eight hours lhe very  roots
of u life whicli bad sprung from
this soil, and for forty years had
j grown in it und drawn its  nurture from it?
'Pardon me, sir,' she suid,

"all   down   sons was assigned a  single  room,
wrung her hands until the joints
cracked.
The officers, thinking she had
gone mud with grief, withdrew
in silence.
During the next day Baruch
culled upon the Rabbi and tlie lenders ofthe synagogue, nml they made
up u purse, sufficient to pay the expenses of Rachel Memlinger und
her sons as far ns Hamburg, It
wasexpected that thence they would
be forwarded to the United Slates
by the agents of the llirsch fund.
This expectation was, in fact, fulfilled. There is no need of dwelling
upon the incidents of the journey,

every poor immigrant who,' with
empty hands and a courageous
heart, claims the hospitality of the

They were not cordially received
at Castle Garden, which was then
the great immigrant depot of the
Western World. The question was
even raised as to whether, as assisted emigrants, they would not have
to be returned to Hamburg Hut a
Hebrew benevolent society took up
their cause, and procured them tlie
right of residence. It was not

held a solemn family council; and
after much discussion it was re
solved that Rachel and Baruch
were to scour the town in search of
employment. As they knew no
English beyond a few indispensable
phrases, this seemed a hopeless
undertaking. To Rachel this husie
monster of a foreign city, with its
deafening noises overhead and below, was terrifying, appalling.
She stood on the  front  steps  of
the tenement on the morning  after

For three days Baruch and his
mother continued their search for
work, and oh the evening of tbe
third day :e.ey were both so weary
and dislie-.irtened that they could
scarcely drag themselves along.
After having encountered the usual
reception in an otlice, they had
seated themselves on the marble
-.fairs outside, and Baruch was
nently stroking his mother's hand,
and she was smiling sadly at him
with tear-tilled eyes. Out of her
pale, patient face there shone a
spiritual beauty, like that of St.
Augustine's mother, Monica, when
sbe declared that a child of so
many prayers could never he lost.
And there was at that moment
some one beside her son who was
slruck with the nobility of that
face, and whose heart was touched
by its pathos of suffering. The
merchant—bis name was Aaron
[Rosenthal—was just leaving his
otiice; and as he reached the door
his attention was arrested by the
strange group on the stairs.

But, in spite of all, there was a
strange pathos in its quavering

touched it she coaxed from it
certain cadences and intonations
which were strangely sweet ami
moving. She needed now, as
ever, the consolation which expression afforded to the overburdened heart, nnd, after an
exquisitely tender prelude, she
began, in a clear, hushed voice,
to intone the 88tn psalm:
'0 Lord, rebuke me not in !hy
wrath; neither chasten me in

And the end of it was that he gave

by tbe inspector. The Health
ofl cer has called ibe attention of
the Board lo the fact that milk
below the standard of 8.5 per cent
of butter fat, is being sold, and aa
milk showing so small a per cent-

that dealers be compelled to keep
up to that mark. From lhe last

Visit of Dr. Lucas.
Rev. D. V. Lucas of Ontario commenced his  work  in   the city  by I
preaching   in     the    Presbyterian
Church last Sunday morning.     Ini
the   afternoon   he   adaressed   the
Sunday schools,  and  gave  a  stir- [
ring address to  a   fair audience in
the   Y.   SI.  C.   A.   Hall   at -I p.m.!
Rev. T. \V. Hall occupied the chair, i
ln his address Dr. Lucas said that
some people thought it was no use,'
we had better give up our efforts,
we should never be able to do any-!
thing to abolish   tin* drink  traffic,!
hot he   would   say   we   must   keep
doing wilh all our might, and some
•day it w. old ci me.    lie  hoped   to
ste   Ca nulla   pass   such   a   law,  it
would be the best advertisement for
her, and many   .1  man  in tbe old
countries  would  come  here if he
was  sure   his   boy   would  be safe
from this curse.
He drew an excellent lesson for
the pessimist and skeptical temperance man, by liis reference (o
tbe great Roman Cod Jupiter, and
to the destruction of the walls of
Jericho by Joshua.
In the evening Dr. Lucas preached to a crowded audience in tbe
Wallace   Street    Church.       Mrs.
ing In them, he never gave a
single reason for such a conclusion,
but calmly said that this was a
providential arrangement. God
sending Ihe Chinamen here to be
Christianized by our ministers.
Mr. Editor, I do not think this
gentleman has considered the conclusion of his own statement. For
as a matter of fact the Christianizing of the Chinese in this Province
is an absolute failure. Then the
conclusion that even God's plan is
frustrated by the heathenish obstinacy of the Chinese. With all
their years of effort, they stand just
about where they started, furthermore, the harvest is so abundantly
plenteous amongst tbe natives, and
the success even with this diss is
so insignificant that I am suprised
at these good men thinking that
the Almighty would really give
them fresh supplies before they had
touched the fringe of their own
people. I venture to think, sir,
that even with these ministers their
feelings run as strongly against the
members of other churches as ever
it was in the minds of the anti-
Chinese advocates against the
Chinamen. Sir, I get sick at the
sanctimonious earnestness of these
people, with all their, professed intelligence, not being able to discriminate between an agitation
against a principle that so seriously effects our social state, and yet
having a due consideration for the
individuals themselves, but, forsooth, I forgot this aspect of tie
question never enters into the heads
of these gentlemen. The only
cure for thin ignorance that I know
of was that unconsciously expressed by the Rev. Pedley on
Labor Day of '95, that when John
Pin Tail gets into the pulpit they
will sec this question in another
light, bujot course they know that
this is so very far away that by
that time they will have lived their
little narrow live", • n I will be
basiling in tho sunshine of that
other life, a good taste of which
th 'v have already, but may be not
such a good time as they expect
afterwards.

The Veronica Home.
The MjtiL does not wish to enter
into any controversy on the points
at variance between Mrs. Finnes-
Clinton (Sister Gertrude) and a
gentleman signing himself "Churchman," but as the apology recently
published by the latter, is not considered satisfactory by Sister Gertrude, we desire to place before the
public the facts of tbe case as they
have been presented to us by the
parties mentioned above.
Tlie principal question at issue
is: Did Sister Gertrude receive
money from private and public
sources to conduct the Home on
charity lines? Was it understood
that part of the money so collected
was for the purpose of enabling
Sister Gertrude to nurse deserving
patients free of charge?
Churchman, in his first letter,
distinctly stated that such was the
case, and in his apology made no
retraction.
In an interview with Mrs. Clinton,
The Mail was informed that the
money collected to aid the Veronica
Home was entirely for the building
fund, and no part of it was intend-
id fo.-charity patients. She also
informed us that notwithstanding
this, she has never to her k now led e
refused admittance to anyone, several patients having been nursed free
of charge, and a number of others
at greatly reduced rates, and that
tbe particular case referred to in
"Churchman's" apology, as being
undeserving of charily, never, to
her knowledge, applied for entrance
to the Home at all.
This is Sister Gertrude's side of
fie question and we think it only fair
to her to give it as much publicity
as possible, in order that she may
not suffer because some who contributed to the Home have misunderstood the objects for which
the money was to be applied.

Catarrh Means Danger.
Because if unchecked it may lead directly to consumption, Catarrh is
caused by impure blood. This fact ia
fully established. Therefore, it is useless to try to cure catarrh by outwaid
applications or inhalants. The true
way to cure catarrh is to purify the
blood. Mood's Sarsaparilla, the great
blood purifier, cures catarrh by Ils power
to drive out all impurities from the blood.
Thousands of people testify that they
have been perfectly and permanently
cured of catarrh bv Hood's Sarsaparilla.

No true member of the evangelical church can do as was done at
the above period—go to the saloon,
take his glass with Ine rough crowd,
and find himself comfortable. We
have a clearer knowledge and acquaintance with the demon. He is
our enemy in every sense. We not
only know this, but our inner sense
of the enormity of the evil is very
acute today. This improved moral
insight is the consequence of Christian temperance teaching, and this
we believe to be far-reaching. If
the advanced intellect!! -1 condition
of the people was expended on a
philosophical enquiry into this
stupid, wasteful, man-destroying
poison, this would be a grand advantage gained by such intelligence. Dr. Lucas will do a great
deal to bring this about, and every
Christian man and woman and
everyone interested at .ill in the
good of humanity ought to render
him every possible assitance. My
only wish is that the people of Nanaimo will show their gooilsense by
bearing the Doctor, and showing its
effects by trying to continue the

REV. nil. LUCAS.
Rev. Dr. Lucas is a Canadian by
birth and education. In Montreal,
where he was a pastor for several
years, he saw among the people of
(bat large and growing city, the
evils of the liquor traffic, and took
an active part in endeavouring to
diminish those evils.
Dr. Lucas i.s in the Province under the auspices of the various
temperance societies, with a view
of rousing public sentiment on this
question. At the Y. M. £ A. hall
last night, he gave the first of his
series of loctures in Nanaimo. The
ball was crowded to its utmost
capacity; many being obliged to
stand. The lecturer urged thc
teachers in the public schools to
avail themselves of the helps afforded by the scientific books now
published, to teach the youth the
nature ami effects of alcohol on the
haman system, and to warn them
of the bitter consequence in alcoholic beverages.
Thc Doctor warned Ihe yotinir
ladies against marrving young men
