Steamship Maria Riokmers Arrive* in Port
With Eight Additional Survivors
of tho Wrecked Vessel.
Baltimore, Dec. 14.���Eight additional survivors of the crew of the lost
steamship Loudouian were brought
into this port tonight by tbe North
German Lloyd Searusbip Maria Rick-
mers. They aro Capt. E. B. Lee,
Third Officer Joseph Pottlier, Boatswain T. Behui, Quartermaster F.
Carlson, Able Somen, J. Webb and
W. Carness, Second Steward D, Dar-
noll ami Second Cook W. Martin.
These, with Jo rescued by the Johnston line steamer Ycdcmore, complete
the list of survivors, IS having been lost
iu au attempt to leave the disabled
ship in ouo of her small boats. Of tbe
latter, two wero cattlemen, who perished and ihe balance were members
of the crew. The names of the cattlemen who were lost were Daniel Cov-
onty, of Boston and Thomas McCoy,
of Worcester, Mass., and,those of tbe
crew who met the same fate were
Chief Officer Murray. Chief Engineer
Stafford, Third Engineer Wm. Slater,
Carpenter Weigmann, Chief Steward
Harry Waterman, Fireman K A.
Shaford. Seamen Johnson, Neilson,
Peterson, Heudriokseu, Crowley, Williams, Hennessj ami I Inward and a
man whose name is nnkuoVn tnd who
was working his way In England.
The Londonian left Boston on November Kith, loaded witb general out
chandise and oarrying 600 cattle bound
for London. How sho became helpless through au aooident to her steering gear and wallowed in the trough
of the sea from November 2-'. to No-
vermber 85, how site was sighted by
tho Vedimioru who lay alongside for
three days and after heroic efforts succeeded in taking off 4."i of those ou
board and how beforn Ihe balance
could be rescued tbe two strainers separated in tlie darkness aud finally lost
sight of ono another, has already been
told. On November 89, tbe Loudouian was again sighted by the British
Steamship King Arthur and a olnse
inspection of ihe wreck showed uo
signs of life. A few days later one of
the Londonian's life boats with oars
in it, was sighted, but nothing else
was there to indicate what might have
been the fate of its occupants. A
week has elapsed since tbe arrival of
the Vedamore and during the interim
but little hope has beon felt that any
of those who remained on board tlie
Londonian when she and tho Vedamore parted company, would over be
heard from again.
That  another  obapter  ofjjtliis tnlo
of the sea is to be told seems little
short of miraculous. The thread nf
the narrative is again taken up on
tho night, of Holiday, November 30,
just before midnight, when the Riok-
mcrs, bound from Bremen for Baltimore, sightod a steamer burning a
Hare light upon her bridge. Capt.
Paul (iroseh. of the German liner,
altered the course of his vessel and in
tho moonlight made out a large steamer with sih'li a list to starboard as to
throw her ou her beam ends. A hail
from him and an answering shout
from the wreck showed that there was
life aboard. Second Mote I'- Lenz,
of the Rickmors, together witl) six
menfput oil' to the rescue. For more
than three hours, owing to the heavy
swell, futile attempts were niaile to
reach the wreck which by (his time
was ascertained to be that of tbe Londonian. Finally, tis a last resort, tho
rescuers got in close to the stem of
tho disabled craft and shouted to those
on board, all of whom were huddled on
the bridge, (o make their way aft. and
throw them a line. This being complied with, the ship-wrecked sailors
were instructed to make the line fast
about their bodies and throw themselves into the water. One after another they obeyed and were thus
drawn aboard Ihe life boat. When
the rescuers and the rescued reached
the side of the Kickmers it was found
that the sea was still so high as lo
make it impossible to bring tho boat |
close alongside, undone after another I
the occupants of the little craft were
hauled aboard with lines anil the lifo-
boat sot adrift. The wreak of tbe Londonian drifted away in the darkness
and those who had been aboard of her
have little doubt that she ultimately
sunk.The Kickmcrs resumed her course
and tonight brought to this oily Capt.
Leo and his seven shipmates none of
whom had ever expeoted to reach laud
after losing sight of the Vedamore.

by a

An explosion of dynamite by which
James Houghton, known' also as James
(i. James ami as Australian "Billy,"
was killed,occurred at the Ooxey mine,
near* Rossland, Tuesday afternoon.
Houghton lived til out IB minutes aller
the aooident. He was formerly a
resident of Nelson.
Of the unfortunate affair, (he Kossland Miner says:
"James, who had a contract for
driving ."ill feet df tunuoling on the
Ooxey, was working on the day shift.
About 4 :80 o'clock be came uut to get
his obarges for the evening blasts. Al

smithy, (1. W. Oheuuwetb, and while
talking to him James capped his fuses

Then lie walked away to tlie powder
warmer to get his dynamite. A few
minutes afterwards there was a terrific explosion. Mr. Ohenowetb hurried
out of the shop to the powder warmer.

summoned and Willi they were con

remains wero brought to town and
taken to tho Police Station, but as Ihe
accident occurred outside of the city
limits the care of Ihe body was entrusted to Provincial Constable Hooson.
"There were about 111 sticks of powder iu the warmer, ami all of them
went oil'. The cause of the explosion
can only be guessed at. Perhaps
some glycerine had leaked from the dynamite, and dropning ou tlie grouud
exploded. Perhaps a spark from
James' pipe set the fuse and (lie caps
afire, and tbe explosion of the caps resulted in tbe explosion of the dynamite.
"James was born in Victoria, Australia, and was about '.12 years old. He
had a wife in his native country, bnl

Havana,       Deo.     II.���The   United
States Transport, Panama, with   General  Fi'zbugh Lee   and   his   stall'  on
board, entered   ihe   harbor this morning.    (leneral   Lee was   informed  by
I a correspondent of the Associated Press
i of his appointment as Governor of tho
Province of Havana.    He   said he was
much gratified, hut   had only  wished
for military   command.    The   general
added   that   ho   was   simply in   command   of bis soldiers, that bis duty is
to preserve, life and   properly and that
ho proposes to  do so   with   equal .justice to   all   nationalities.    Lee   added
' that he had   nothing to   do  with   tho

Washington, Deo 14.���Ad]!.-General
Corbiii appoared today before the
House Committee on Military Affairs.
His statements attracted unusanl interest because of their direct reference
to conditions in Cuba,Porto Rico and
the Philippines aud tho military requirements ou which the war department wns acting as to the need of an
increased army, General Curbin said
thut was a most serious proposition.
He proceeded:
"The Cuban Evacuation Commission has submitted a statement that
in oilier to preserve order and restore
order in Cuba it will require the pres-
onco_of au army of o0,1)00 men.
"It was ou my recommendation"
said General Corhin, "that (he plan of
sending troops to Cuba was based,
li might be found that DO,000 men
would not be absolutely requisite but
we aro holding 50,000 men iu readiness
to go if required. As to the Philippines, Gen. Otis in command there
had recommended that 2."),000 men
were required. In Porto Kico the officers in command recommended that
the force now on hand is about adequate for the requirements. Tho pro-lent force thero is about 6,000. Thai
made 81,000 men, 60,000 for Cuba, 86,-
ceo for the Philippines and about 6,-
0(0 for Porto Kico, leaving an army of
100,0(10 wilh about 18,000 for reserves
at home. "
"Do you think 60,000 men for Cuba
a conservative estimate?" asked Mr.
Jott. of Illinois.
"I think it is," answered '.lie Gen-
"And how long will that last?"
asked Mr.  Hay.
"I wish I could say," answered
General Oorbin, "But'no nun can
say. You cannot view conditions in
Cuba as you can iu Ohio and Pennsylvania. For 100 years the people there
have been accustomed to bo ruled by
force. Tho officers there fear that
with these conditions and habits if
troops are not there trouble may occur. "
Present Indications, at Least, so Foint"
Toionto Globe Deals Editorially
With the Question.
Convenience of Canadians   as Well   as
Americans Must Be  Considered.
Toronto. Dec. 14.���The Globe's Ottawa correspondent, discussing the
question of adjournment of the Washington Commission as bearing on Ihe
session of Parliament, says: "It is
scarcely possible to believe that Canada's representatives will agree to a
resumption of the Conference at the
beginning of March when in the ordinary course of events their presence
will be required at home. If is not
likely they will ho asked lo agree to
a suspension of negotiations during
tlie time that wonld suit the convenience of the American Comiiimissinncrs

shown lor their own. However unimportant tlie session may be it could
Scarcely be expected lhat less than a
month or six weeks would suffice for
the transaction of tho business of
Parliament. Members could not be
called together before February,having
regard to their own convenience and
to the state of preparedness in the
dilfrent Departments, and if the Commission resumed work early in March
there would not be time (o dispose of

under the will of the late John  Black. |
Toronto, Out., Dec. 14.���The Globe's
leading editorial today deals with the
Conference at Washington and the possibilities of a treaty being effocted.
Speaking of the possibility thut U.
S. Republicans in the Senate may reject frea lumber on strictly protectionists grounds, it says: This is a matter of American domestic concern, in
which we,as Canadians, have no right
to complain and about which we are
growing less concerned every year.
This country has never enjoyed more
prosperity than has been vouchsafed
to it since tho Dingley tariff, with its
high and in some cases almost prohibitory duties against Canadian products, has been in forco, and the situation instead of growing worse, has
been improving every day. The people of this country would be glad to
extend trade with tho Unitod States
upon . fair terms; but the time when
the markets of the United States were
essential to their prosperity, if it ever
existed,has gone hy. And if our neigh
bors do uot believe that reciprocity
would be profitable to themselves they
are welcome to go their own way in
peace, while Canadians will rolurn with
renewed energy to the development
of their own resources and industries on independent lines. If reciprocity alone were under consideration,
and the American Commissioners felt
nothing could be done in that way,
there would bo no reason why the Conference should bo protracted for another day. But the Conference is considering tho whole subject of tho relations between (he two countries and
it may bo lhat Americans are working
for some concession for which reciprocity would bo regarded as an equivalent.
Lord Herscbell is thoroughly acquainted with tbo policy of tho Imperial Government and possibly there
is somo reason, Imperial rather than
Canadian in its character, for his anxiety to conclude a treaty. Upon this
point we are not qualified to speak,
but may say, with certainty, that Can
ada would be reasonably satisfied with
Ihings as they are. and tbat thero will
he no great disappointment in this
country if tlie Commissioners part
without accomplishing anything but
an exehang of good wishes. And we
should think lhat tlle best interests of
ihe Empire ought (o bo identical with
ours in Cannda. We cannot help the
Empire   better  than  by helping  our-

President MoKinley'S Greeting lo   the
Georgia Legislators,
Atlanta. Ga , Die. 14,��� President
McKinley, the members of his Cabinet, and a party nf prominent military
men, reached Atlanta this morning.
They came to participate in tbe Peace
Jubilee to be held here. At noon
the President addressed the members
of the Georgia Legislature now ill session. In the course of his speech, the
President said :
"Sectional lilies no longer mar the
map of the United States. Sectional
feeling no longer holds back the love
we bear each other. Fraternity is the
national anthem, sung byj a chorus nf
46 Stales and our territories at home
and beyond tbe seas. The Union is
once more the common Atlas of our
love and loyalty, our devotion and
sacrifice. Every soldier's grave made
during our unfortunate Civil War is
a tribute to American valor, and while
when those (.oaves were made wo
differd widely obout the future of this
Government the differences were long
ngo settled by the arbitrament of arms,
and the time'now comes in tho evolu
ion of sentiment and feeling under tho
providence of God when in the spirit
of fraternity we should share wilh
you iu the care of the graves of Confederate soldiers. The cordial fooling
Which now happily exists between
the North and South prompts this
gracious act, and, if it needed further
justification, it is found iu the gall-
i nt loyalty to the. Union and the flan,
so conspicuously shown in tho year
just passed by the sons and grandsons
of tb' se lieroio dead. "
The President's reference to the
Confederate   dead   was   greeted   with
the  wildest  applause.   The prettiest
and most novel event of the day's festivities occuried during Ihe afternoon.
It was Ihe floral parade, in which all
the prominent people of the city took

Subscribed by the Board of Governors at
a Meeting Held Yesterday
Montreal. Dec. 14,��� MoGill University is again the recipient of a magnificent gift. At a meeting of the Board
of Governors yesterday Ihe financial
position of the University and, in particular, the extent to which the general funds of the University have beeu
encroached noon by a reourring defioit
in th- eveuue.and increased expenditure, were discussed and, as a result
the members of ihe Board themselves
subscribed (180,000 at the meeting.
The Royal Victoria College for women, erected by Chancellor Lord
Slrathcona, at a cost of over half a
million dollars, has been ready for occupation for some time, but the University is not in a position finaneiallv
to accept such a gift and conduct il
on a suitable scale. Lord Ktralhcona,
in referring to the institution, said it
wonld be open for the reception of
students on Sept. 1, 1890, and added
that the endowment with which Ihe
institution would commence, would
amount, including the existing Don-
alda fund of (100,000 to (1,000,000.
There will be no separate stall' of professors as the lecturing will be done
under the direction of (he present professors and lecturers of MoGill, with
snob additions as circumstances may
require. This will really make over
(1,600,000 whioh Lord Slrathcona has
given for higher education of women

Mr, W. O, MnoDonuld, who has al
ready given upwards of two millions

Interest of   Monopoly.
Washington, Dee. II.���In the Senate this iiftenoon, the bill providing
regulations for registration nf foreigu-
hinlt vessels wrecked on the Ameri-
jan coast and repaired in the United
Slates, was taken up and Mr. Oaffrey
addressed the Senate in opposition to
il. saying that under Us provisions
vessels would he wrecked in order lo
secure American registry. He attacked the navigation and tariff laws
of the United States, saying they had
practically driven our merchant marine from Iho seas. He contended
that the bill was prohibitive in its
terms and intended to remove the   last
stage of competition in the matter
of snip building. There was no necessity for Ibis under present conditions.
"We may bold the Philippines, Cuba
and Porto Rico," lie said, "hut if we
adopt the oontrnotive policy nf tins
measure our balloon will be s��.n collapsed and our expansion policy comes
to an end. "
Tbe bill was in absolute inhibition
against the importation of a ship,
making that the only article tbnt
could not  be  imported.   He   thought
the bill in the interest of monopoly,
At the close of Mr. Caffery's remarks,
the bill went over until tomorrow.
,': s Far as Heard From Liberals Have Been

Toronto, Dec. 14.-���Returns received
thus far from tho constituencies in

indicate a clean sweep for the Liberals excepting North Simcoe, where
the Iudependeut will probably be
elected over the Liberal candidate
In Bagot, Maroile (Liberal)was eleoted ovor. Brodeua, Conservative by
48 majority. The vacancy in Bagot
was caused by the death of Dupont,
who was elected in the Conservative
interests in 189(1 by acclamation. This
is an iinporlant victory for the Liberals.
In East Prince the poll at 9 o'clock
stood Bell (Liberal) 1863, Lefurgey,

Shall we encourage the investment
of foreign capital in the development
of the resources of this Province? If
the question were put directly to the
Vancouver World, it would almost
certainly return au affirmative answer; yet in a paragraph in a recent
issue it advances nn argument that
is cnlculated to discourage enterprises
fouuded on capital obtained ou the
other side of the line. It observes
with annoyance that the Spokane po-
pers are congratulating themselves ou
t he fact that the purchase money recently received iu connection with
the Oorbin-Hill railway deal is being largely expended in that city.
Some of this money is received for
railway property on tho Canadian side.
It is also complained that tho money
passed from the British America Corporation to tho minority holders of Le
Roi stock is similarly employed. All
th ese, it is said, and witli much
bitterness, "made their pile in this
Province, and yet, the moment thoy
are able to command a considerable
sum in bard cash, it is invested by
them in properties outside British

pass a law absolutely prohibiting
Americans from putting a foot in the
country, or investing a dollar of capital in any sort of Canadian enter
prise. That law could lie passed, und
if passed there is no doubt it could be
enforced. But if we allow Americans
to come into the country, and to bring
oapital with them, and lo engage in
railroading, mining, or other oocupa
tion, we cannot prevent them from
increasing their capital, we cannot
prevent them from disposing of their
interests, and we cannot prevent them
from taking away their gains and
investing them in Spokane, in Hu-
vuuu, in Manila, or anywhere they
The whole matter, therefore, reduces
itself to the simple question, Shall
wo admit Americans and Amerioan
capital to aid in developing our ro
sources? The World will hardly say
that we ought not to; and if it does,
it will find it exceedingly dillicult to
get any one to agree wilh il. What our
contemporary complains of is one of
those things thut are constantly happening all over tho world, It has been
so from tho beginning, and will so
continue. We would prefer to see the
men who come into British Columbia
and make money out nf our mines,
sottlo down as citizens of Iho Province
and invest and enjoy their gains iu
our midst. Bui we oiiuuol so oitler
it | and failing that, we would prefer
to linve those niioes develuped anyway,
oven if the gains have tn go out of the
country. If we do not got a share of
those gains, wo at least profit indi
reetly, which is muoh bettor than to
have those resources lying idle, of benefit to nobody. All Ibis is so elementary, us n principle in political economy, that we wonder what our contemporary was thinking about when it
published its paragraph.

beeu a most ambitions town, so muoh
so that in its haste to become great it
never stopped to count the cost. The
result huB been that it piled up del is
which it is now finding itself unable
to moot with any sort of convenience,
and the ugly word repudiation has
been suggested in connection with its
difficulties. It is understood thai a
special assessment litis been regarded
as a necessary preliminary to an enforced arrangement with some of its
Municipal extravagance lias brought
it to this unhappy pass. It spent beyond its means, with the inevitable
result thut financial troubles have
overtaken it. Taxation has reached nl
limit beyond which it is impossible to
go. An expensive sewerage system
ami extravagance in civic buildings
were the last���not straws, but sheaves.
There may be u lesson in this to Nelson, aud other promising communities
ambitious to get ahead. Hero there
are improvements that must be made
and conveniences that must bo had;
but iu providing them it will be tbe
highest wisdom always to keep in
sight tho fact that a day of reckoning

step to its becoming ruinous.
The Time
-During his stay in Winnipeg, on
tho occasion of his latest visit, Mr.
Siftou wus obliged to receive the usual number of delegations. Among
them was one composed of oity hankers, who were understood to have been
interviewing the Minister in connection with the proposed appointment
of a special assessor for the city of
Brandon. It is possible tn imagine
why Winnipeg bankers should have au
interest iu n special assessment for
Brandon, although by uo means easy;
but what authority or control tn tho
matter an Ottawa Minister can have
is beyond the reach of ordinary understanding. According to published
reports, Brandon is finding itself in
u bud way financially. The chickens
it hatched so  plentifully u  fow yours
Yesterday wus a Liberal day. The
Liberal candidate carried Bagot, ouo
f the dozen or so constituencies left
to the Conservatives iu Quebec after
that disastrous June day in 1890. The
victory is till the more significant because of tho fact that Bagot litis been
Tory for long years past. West Lamb-
ton's majority was quite emphatic
enough for all purposes. Mr. Hardy
scored a pronounced success iu Enst
Northumberland, where the old Conservative member, Dr. Willougbby,
wus a second time defeated. North
Simcoe remains loyal to the lute D'Al-
ton McCarthy, by electing his nephew
on the McCtc'thy platform. Thoro is
a gleam of sunshine in this, howevei,
for tho Conservatives, as the nephew
is more Tory than Liberal in sympathy.
Little wonder, indeed, Lord Kitchener is succeeding so well with his
Soudan college, which requires ��100.-
000 for its establishment, lie appeals
to the generosity of the British pub
lie in the name of Gordon; Her Majesty has consented to become patrBil
to the movement; the Prince of Wales
is vice-patron, and Lord Salisbury
has token the unusual stop of writing
a letter for publication, strongly committing the Government in favor of
the scheme. With suoh aids as this
at tho back of a man as popular as the
bero of Khartoum, anything ought t
bo possible.

Mayor Houston Refuses to Sign it After it
Has Lewi Awarded by tbe
Tlio meeting ot tbe License Commissioners yesterday afternoon smocked strongly of tbe palmy days of the
Oity Council, though the results
thereof were rather contradictory and
unsatisfactory, as Alio Johnson \v:<s
awarded his license hy tho commissioners, hut, nevertheless, was not
successful in obtaining it.
Those present at the meeting consisted of tho three Commissioners, Mayor
Houston. W. A. Macdonald, Q. 0.,
uud Police Magistrate Crease ; the rival
applicants, Messrs. Abe Johnson aud
K. B. Lemon; and their respective solicitors, Messrs. P, Wilson and B. S.
Taylor. There was also present a
small knot of interested spectators.
Tho question to he decided was the
destination of the spare saloon license,
held hut nol used by Mrs. Mallette,and
hoth applicants claimed to havo a
transfer which they desired to havo
confirmed by the hoard.
Mr. Johnson produced a written
transfer of the license from Mrs.
Mullet to, and Mr. Lemon also stated
that Mrs. Mallette had transferred
her license to him, und thai he had a
receipt for tho consideration paid
therefore. Mr. Lemon, however, did
not produce any documentary evidence
of the transfer,and it was also elicited
that his transfer was subsequent 10
that ot Mr. Johnson's, and was in
fact given after Mr. Johnson hud engaged the building in which he proposes to open his saloon, though Mr.
Lemon stated thut ho was not at that
time aware with what object tho
premises had been acquired.
Iu support of his application Mr.
Johnson stated that after obtaining,
tho license bo had approached Ihe
Mayor in the mitt ir, an I that His
Worship had told him to go ahead and
get his saloon ready, anil that he
would give him a permit until such
time as the License Commissioners
mot. Mr. Johnson also stated that on
tho strength of this assurance, ho had
engaged premises for which he was.
and bad been for nearly two mouths,
paying rent, anil had ordered har fittings and stock, hut tlie Mayor had
sinco refusd to grunt the promised permit.
The Mayor became very angry, ami
chtiraeleri/.ed Mr. Johnson's statement
ns to his promise as abaulutly   untrue,
Mr. Johnson replied and a warm
altercation ensued. Mr. Johnson
wished (o leave the question to Mr.
J'K. Btrochnn, the Oity-Cleric, whom
ho stated was present when the promise was made At this point Mr. \V.
A. Macdonald intervened, refused to
allow tho reference, ami insisted upon
due decorum being observed.
The Hoard then proceeded to discuss
the question as lo who should have
the license, hut Ihe .Mayor would not
hear of it lining awarded to Mr. Johnson, hut ho was outvoted by the other
two Commissioners on the ground thai
Mr. Johnson had tbe prior right by
reason of the earlier date of his transfer. Thus the matter was apparently
His Worship passed tho motion hut
absolutely refused to sign the transfer
to Mr. Johnson, a necessary formality
before a license can bo issued Mr.
Macdonald pointed out to the Mayor
that this was tantamount to putting
his authority above that of the majority of tho Board. His Worship, how-
over, still refused to sign, and thus the
maitor stands.
It is not known yet what course Mr.
Johnson intends to adopt, as lie has
placed himself iu the hands of his solicitor.

Martin Markson, of Slocan City, B.

Chionielc as follows:
"It's all rigbt for Jim Hill to talk
about invading Canadian Pacific territory ; but while he is doing that the
C. P. ft. will not ho asloop. There are
strong indications ihal before another
winter begins the Canadian road will

Mr. Hill in his own field.
"While 1 cannot slate positively
that (lie Canadian Pacitie will build a
new line into this stale in 1899," continued M'\ Markson. "I can stale positively that the plan is being considered by ollicials of tho road. They
talked about it quite freely while
wo were with them on the Crow's
Nest Pass excursion, and while perhaps they did not think about tbe publication of their remarks, (bey made
no attempts to pledge secrecy.
"Tho plan as discussed is to start a

Tho   Rink   Proprietors   Havo  Stated
How Much Money They Want.
Tbe curlers of tho city are now considering tho offer made tho club by
the proprietors of the new rink.
Tho rmk people want $10 from each
player and wish to have a guarantee that
fill of these $10 tickets will he taken.
In view of the fuel that the subsorip
tion to the Culling Club has been fixed
at $10 and thai it is hardly probable
that BO members will bo onrollod in
the first season of the club's life the
curlers are at a loss to -tee how thoy
can except the terms of the rink. E.eu
if nil members were secured Ihe rink
tickets would eat up nil the revenue
of tho club anil there would be nothing
left for the necessary expenses attend-
nut upon organization. To raise tho
membership fee would in the opinion
of (he olllcers of tho club bo a wrong
step, as anything over $10 would be
considered too high as the members
will have to go to tho heavy oxpouso
of purchasing stones.
So as matters now stand something
will havo to givo ou ouo side or tho
othor. Just what will happen will
have to be settled by the rink people
and tho curlers. With the club organized it is to be hoped that nothing will
interfere with tho members enjoying
a good season's sport.
No meeting of the club was held as
intended on Tuesday but one will bo
called shortly to discuss tho matter.

pearanoe about twice a week. "Raw-
hiding" wus all tho rago with my
schoolmaster then aud ho vvas tho
most enthusiastic "rawhidor" since
tho demise of the man who invented
the instrument of torture referred to.
My immediate paternal ancestor was
something of a "rawhidor" too, and
he and the school master kept mo
tattoed in tho choicest blend of dark
blue-black nnd yellowish green colors.
It is not strange, therefore, that the
conversation 1 had overheard filled me
with feelings of sniynatby towards
the unfortunate being to whom reference was made. Perhaps, too, there
was a story in it. in any event I
made bold to inquire of one of the
gentlemen I had overheard if there
had boon any trouble in town.
"I believe I heard you suy something
about someone being 'rawhided,' I beg
your pardon for intruding but would
you mind telling me something of the
particulars, names, etc."
Tho words wero hardly spoken before I knew I had again made a beautiful display of my ignorance. Ho
looked at mo with a look akin to pity
and then called me away from tho
group and explained, and now I know
what "rawhiding" is. The knowledge is costly but we must have it.

Recent Events   Have   Sent   Roseberry
Stock Up.
The London Spectator, in contrasting Lord Rosebery and Sir William
Harcourt, probably gives a better understanding of iho hitter's resignation
as Liberal leader than the gentleman
himself docs in his feller to Mr. Mor-
lev, whore ho attributes if to dissensions in the party. Tho (Spectator I
says in part!
Sir William Harcourt has lost nearly
as muoh as bis rival���wo had almost
written adversary���has gained. He
has, so far ns we know, been just as
patriotic. He haB supported the Ministry quite as fully. He has been, in
words at all events, as completely ou
tbe popular side. But he wns very
slow in declaring himself, He wns
known to be at least doubtful us to Iho
reeonqucst of tho Soudan, aud his
speeches have lucked something of the
ring which, when war is to be dis-
cussed, and especially when war is
to bo accepted, Kngishmen oxpeol
from even the most moderate of leaders. Tho Liberals friendly to Sir William Harcourt said he laid done everything rightly, and bad in no degree
lost their   confidence,    but they   were
disappointed all the samo.   They hai
expeoted that the great, athlete of debate would have shown them better
sport. He bad failed, in fact, to touch
tho imagination of a people which,
once stirred, is among the most imaginative on earth. He was not foil to
have contributed to success in the
same degree as Lord Rosebery, and
to have waited much more attentively
to.soo in which way opinion would
go. We dare say be could not help it,
for ho had to study iii order to be certain. Thut curious defect in Sir William Harcourt's great powers, his in
ability to feel precisely as his countrymen feel, was once more iu his wav.
Sometimes, no doubt, he can arrive
at English feeling very accurately, as
he did when he taxed the millionaires,
the universal sense, which mastered
all opposition, being that "they could
spare it," aud when ho betrayed his
respectful contempt for Bishops; b.it
he has little intuition, as ho showed
when he went so strongly for local
option, and when he delayed declaring
that England, having fought for the
Nil.- nnd won it. had no intention of
giving il up to anybody. If Sir William Harcourt bad been Premier when
Oiudurinnn was won be would, we
donbt not, have given sir Herbert
Kitchener his Peerage; hui the notion
of apologizing for an accidental delay
in telling him so. as the Queen, with
a fine lutntition, did, would never
have occurred to his mind. We
should doubt even If he quito understands why tbnt little incident touched
anil gratified millions of bis country,
men. He bus. in fact, during the
crisis lost gri und,
