h'gh-iuiiidei   enough   in    gpiimal   to
appreciate this, and lo   aay    lhat   the
Italian was a   liberal,    honest   fellow.
But of course there wou'd   lie here and
there a am-aking knave who would  try
to make unfair profit nut of   this   urbanity.     I  should have mentions I. I')
the way, that the pedla/a store   being
adjac in io hi* lodging in   the    wheelwright'! houae,   ha   frequently   awked
information of   the   faroilv concerning
affairs, an*    uiin'iiiiii's   left   theiu   io
wettlr- matters for Inn. during   hs   absence     And Miss    Harris,   havi g a
better    head    than   her    mot hei,   was
generally the  agent.    Now,   whatever
may have been Giovanni's    teal   senti
menu with regaid   to   dealing, he mi
tainly had not thefaults with which tl.ey
weire   famlwr in our town.   There are
tricks, nis aaid, in all trades; bnt    the
pedlar had  noi the liicka ofthe  wheel-
wrigiit, anil   Miss Harris, coming   by
action for him io understand this,   conceived a very high opinion of   hia   integrity.
Things being so, it fell upon a day
that some worthies sfellow, with a measure or two of liquor inside bim, came
to lhe store toaee if he couldn't get the
better nf the pedlir in a small matter
that was between them. It was a gross
at.empt ; but the dealer gave soft an
wera, and would in all probability hive
rieldel the point when be saw that Ihe
sivagr was impracticable—only for this.
It has been said t at the swaggerer hai
had what lie would bave called his
half-pint ; he was consequently very
loud, anil not disposed io lower his tone
when a fair proBpect appeared of his
gaining what he had come for. Miss
Harris heard high worls, recognised
the voice of the intruder, and forthwith
came upon ihe acene The fellow then
turned to her and made an attempt lo
xplain liis pr landed grievance, while
ahe, to do her justice, listentd paiientlv.
But when he pasBerl from bare state
menta, and began lo gird at their
lodger aa fraudulent anil grasping, which
ahe aincerely believed lum not lo he,
then the younit lady laid her knuckles
un her hips and delivered her stuffed
bosom of some perilous observations
which speedily took the starch out of
the naif-pint, an I reduced the assailant,
I will not sav to weakness as another
man, but to a much ni re abject oon
dition tba • many another man could
descend to, exposing and demolishing
bis dirty attempt at over-reaching.
Furthermore, ahe, being wholly con-
veisant with the scan Ial ol lhe plate,
ileakeb-tonised tlie wretch'a closet with
unsparing dexteritv, and marched the

sentative, who, having no more spirit
in him after the ordeal, beat an igno
minious r.treat from the siore, and
found a job for two months at a place
ten miles from   home.
A less nan Italian auaceplibilily
might have aeen ground for hope in this
championship. It was evidence that if
his belovel was nol attacbedto hun il-

vanni'a being a Roman   Catholic,   not
his   being a  "civis I torn anus"      Nol
three people  of  our community knew
mhether he was the latter or   not;   tnd
it was not his native Statu but   his   religion which they thought of when they
called him   Roman   Jack.      Giovanni
they couldn't manage at sll;   but   they
were told that it waa the aame as John;
and  ihen he waa a   cheap-Jack.
Roman Jack wn e»ily arrived et. A«
for Jack's surname if waa, as they pro
nounced   it,   unpleasant; and   it   was
only used in scornful rhetoric.
The period during which gossip of
the kind above quoted was common-
that is to say, during which Roman
Jack's courtahip hung fire—waa
shortened iu a way not common in
real life, hut often to bn mot with in
romances. I must step aside for a few
sentences to explain what it was.
There   had   been a   villanous   libel
published in our town   and   neighborhood.    It was not inserted in a   raws
paper, but printed on broadsheets, and
stuck on walls or thrown through window! or into areas. The person libelled
was a woman.    The   whole   neighbor
hood waa indignant, and her   relatives
and  friends   furious.       But not   the
slightest clue to the vile author   could
for many dayB be found.    The printer's
name and address   had   been   cut   off
from the bottom of each sheet;   there
teemed to   be   no   likelihood   of  the
libeller being unmasked,   unless out of
the few people   who   must   necessarily
have aided in the   printing   some   one
should betray his   employer,     It   was
thought   that    the   thing   had   been
printed in some   distant   town   where
the workmen   knew   nothing  of   the
family that   had been   outraged,   and
never thought about the   character   of
what they were giving   to   the   world.
The perpetrator himself   was imagined
to have exposed and dispersed his   foul
work   without   much   assistance from
any  one.
A very large reward, as things went
in our quiet district, was offered for
discovery of the author or printer—I
think it was as much as 1200. All tin,
cleverest inhabitant-, 'ailed to penetrate the secret; but Roman Jack,who
knew nothing of the parties concerned,
and apparently very little of our ways
of doing things, solved the mystery
and got the reward. He was, as we
know, always on the tramp; and one
day returning to us from a round of
markets, he produced a sheet from
which the printer's name had not been
separated. His account of his find
was very simple ; he had accidentally,
in a distant town, seen the unmutilated
broadsheet badly stretched ngainst a
boarding, and had taken it down.

But so far aa the public could see,   lit.,
was exceptionally   smooth   for   them.
Jack was sober, led a decent life, and,
as I  have endeavoured to show, under
stood   the   expediency   of   keeping n
guard on bis temper.    Mrs .1., though
exceptionally gifted iu regard to speech,
did not (as the manner of some eloquent
women is)   squander   her   strength in
domestic eruptions, but reserved it  for
business altnrcations and defence against
common enemies.    Towards Jack   she
showed all the forbearance which    was
his due; while to hear her, away from
the   hearth,
or "In Pisonem," was   an intellectual luxury.
There did,   however,   once   come, a
cloud over the   little domicile,   which
was in many of its features so   unlike
the cloud which on   similar   occasions
may    overshadow   a   purely   English
group, that I will try   to   describe   it.
The   occasion   was   an   election   of a
of a member for Parliament; and Jack,
now at anchor and    nationalised, had a
vote to give, and   intended to give   it.
He knew   nothing   and   cared npt   a
farthing about either candidate personally ; but he took what to him seemed
a   reasonable    view   of the   political
situation, and decided to give his voice
accordingly.    Howbeit,   in ao deciding,
ho reckoned much—very much—without his host.    It   was   the   will   and
pleasure of the wheelwright,    his   relatives, and   admirers,   to   he   devoted
adherents of the   yellow.    Why   they
chose that side, I believe   tliey   knew
no more than   the Emperor  of   China
did.    Yellow enjoyed   the   distinction
of being their choice ; they intended to
brawl for yellow, and to get drunk   in
yellow publica, and that   was   enough
Roman Jack   was   a   sensible   fellow
enough   in his own place ; they   were
willing and glad to  listen to hin. on
subjects which   he   understood.    But
was he,a wretched foreigner, to have an
opinion of his own on this most English
of English questions, and to enter into
judgment   concerning it   with   intelligences like theirs 1   A thing not to be
borne.    The heart of the   whetrlwri'-lit
was moved, and the heart of his people,
as the troes of the wood are shaken hy
the wind.    They would stand no contradiction   here.    Nobody   who   pre
sumed to vote   blue   could or   should
have part or  lot   with   them.    Thev

own hands, and in such a case as this
would have Khared the knowledge with
very confidential assistants. The person (supposed to bo the author) who
stretched tho copies on the walls was
too deeply implicated to havo done
hia work carelessly, or to let the
printer's name appear. My opinion,
not formed at the tune, is that the
Roman, as he visited town after town,
contrived, under cover of offering his
wares, to communicate with some one
nearly concerned in the printing, to
whom he ottered a share of the reward
if an iiiimuiHated copy could be supplied to him, and whom he guaranteed
against a quarrel with his employer by
undertaking to do all the work of de-
tection himself, and to invent a Btory
which ahould show no one elae to have
lieen concerned. Before I have done
with my Roman friend, I may bring
some readers to think as I do about
However, the excitement, when Jack
came back with his damning document,
was about the discovery of the printer,
not about how it had been made. The
printer at once gave up the author,
who got soundly punished, and the
gossips enjoyed their favorite "pabulum" even to satiety.
Roman Jack was thought to have
fairly earned the reward, and he got it.

business which was not so easy to
manage. 1 am sorry to record that
Mrs. Jack, swayed in this matter by
old hobits, by ingrained prejudice, or
I know not what perversity, fell away
from her husband, and took rather
violent part with her father's house,
declaring, by no means in dumb show,
for yellow, and ceasing not day or night
to reiterate her indignation and advice.
The Roman felt this treason pi"t')
keenly. It was the only item in tbe
business that he cared for. He. how-
ever, concealed what he fell, and took
things with his usual placidity, though
he wat oruelly set upon. As the elec
tion day approached, the trouble intensified ; and by the time tho poll was
open, things had been made very hot
He was about to vote. Before he did
so his wife contrived to get him into
her father's house for a last remonstrance. The wheelwright was there
in a somewhat subdued condition.
He had been drunk for six days, and
incapable of activo exertion for three ;
and his personal action at this period
amounted to not much more than fixing
his eyeB, which were particularly
bloodshot and without lustre, and
smiting his fist on the table, each time
that he did so reiterating in husky
tones a phrase, which seemed to be ns
much as he oould manage, "Any feline
what goes and votes agin  yeller oft r o
be "    He in no instance finished it
nut let the sound die away in hi i
throat. The house, however, was full
of his connections and gossips, all more
or less approaching the condition in
which alone a free Briton can exercise
cured  a   large his inestimable   privileges.    They  toi
mented the pedlar   unsparingly, with

not the days' of the ballot   box.    J-tck
went to the polling place, wben he was

But he shook   them   ofl' with a  uielan
choly look,   saying,   "Nn,  I   cannot, 1
cannot,'  and gave his voice   for yell iw
amid their derision and reproaches.  Id-
was glad to get away   from ihe crowd,
and went  straight  back to the   wheel
wright's,    where   he  was   received by
those   assembled   as by persons   who,
having    persisted   in    a good   cause,
had   "at    lost     prevailed.        But     be
came in very cooly  and said    "Now, 1
give the vote   as you say.     It is  done.
I veesh to speak alone vis my  wife anrl
her relations, eef you allow ni"."    This
was not refused, as Jack had now been
"conformable", and they   were soon ro
duced toa strictly family party.
"Will," said he, "I have done as you
veesh. 1 would not have my private
affairs made amusement for the idle
peoples. Su I yield." Then turning
to his wife, "Now this I tell you, "sposa
mia." —I will not eat wis you, nor drink
wis vou, nor sleep wis you, nor have
nosing ro do wis you as your otband,
till you go down on your kness before
your relations and ask my forgiveness
for the shame you hav. moke me to

to his shop, got out his pack, and
in five minutes waa off on one uf his
Mrs. J. thought very little of what
he had threatened, Sh'- lif"' carried
her point about the vote, ami had no
doubt that Jack would return in better
humor, having pretty well forgotten
the little disturbance. But this was a
mistake. Wlien Jack came back in
ten days or sn, nil the excitement of the
election was over. Tin- wheelwright
wns sober, and had returned to bis
regular work; everything looked quiet
ami respectable. But Jack did nol
come home. He took up bis quarter*.
at an inn when' he had lodged wlien
he first visited ns. Of oourse he had
o call at the simp t" replenish bis
travelling stock and see how business
had been going on : but he treated bis
wife quite iu. n saleswoman, would have
nothing to sny to her except about tin-
wares and the money, and wns off again
as soon as practicable.
Of course Mrs .1. made many an
effort to get within bis guard, and was
surprised that sh- c„u!d not do n i ll
was only when he bad departed again
that she'begun to realise the state of
things. Sim was not one to take a
desponding view of anything; bul she
had been treated to the lust as a shop
woman—nothing better—and John
hail left without one word of adieu oi
Buying when br- would be at home
again. From astonishment nnd anger,
whioh were her lirst sensations, a con
sciousness of desolation stole over her.
She had been sustained more than ihe
knew of by Giovanni's quiet guidance,
She herself wits considered by others,
and perhaps considered herself, the
real "managing man,' because the
bustling and smartness were all hers ;
she knew now bow ber energy had
been economised and nude effective by
Jack's able direction, always n"'"1.*'
and unpretendingly given. BLerparenta
and kinsfolk, who tried to sustain her,
"because she'd certainly a den iln-
right thing 'bout th' election,'' proved
but very poor counsel, and brought out
in striking contrast the difference be
tween them and her own goodraan.
Little by little ii became apparent that
she had'procured the vote at n ruinous
price; it occurred to her that her behaviour—though she did not consider
it so at the time—had been exceedingly
rude und improper Her "sperrel
gave way from day to day ; and one
dull evening, after Jack Imd not been
heard of for a fortnight, seated by her
mother's side on the settle, she liftnd
up her voice and wept -a practice to
which (die was by no menus addicted.
Fiom this time she "went softly"; and
though she did not ask for pity, two
or three gossips began to call her "poor
•hing" She knew that there was h

won't   hurry up  the  catastrophy.    We
almost   led sorry for the uewspapers ;
they remind us  of a Caspar  we once
saw in   llie   u*iera of the   Freyschutze,
who ]*ointed lo the eagle, then fired the
charmed bullet ; bul  the ill-fated bird
stuck in the scenery and Caspar's statement that " it conies ! it  conies!" became rather  tnunutonous.      This war
that everybody says must certainly begin   in the spring, is,  according to all
accounts,   lieing   prepared   for   on all
sides.    The   French and Germans are
providing  armies  and   navies   of Ihe
in.ist stupendous character and hurrying
troops forward to  the frontiers, in each
case,   so as  to Ik  in  very dangerous
proximity.    If we may judge from the
late desjiatches the great battle of the
struggle  will be fought on  the borders
of Alsace-Lorraine.    We may be quite
sure that the contest will be a terrible
one ; for France it will be life or death,
because Bisnverck will  never leave her
until he has thoroughly crippled her for
the  next fifty years.    If, on the other
hand, the French should be victorious,
it  would be a  terrible thing  lor Germany; with loss  of prestige and much
exhausted, Russia  would at once demand concessions   that would reduce
the Fatherland to the status of a third-
class   power,   and all   the  labor and
scheming of Bismarck   for the last fifty
years,   would   vanish   like the empty
fabric uf a vision.    Whether either of
these   national  calamities   will ensue,
time alone can tell ; but the bitterness
in which the contest will begin presages
disaster   for one at least.      Russia is
quietly biding her time,  fully prepared.
Her object is to see France and Germany engaged in a life and death struggle, when she will at once *x>unce upon
the property of the   " sick man "   and
that  she will take—if she can.    With
her, as with the  others, it is what may
be termed a life  and death struggle;
she will  stake everything upon iu    If
she succeeds, it will be boundless power
and  wealth,  with  a  new lease of the
throne for the Romanoffs.    If she fails
it will be ruin and death to the Romanoffs and a horrible civil  war,  ending,
possibly, in the  dismemberment of the
great   northern empire.     It has been
truly said by some of the great diplomatists, that the map of Euroiie will be
much  changed  when the war is over,
and much anxiety is felt by the smaller
powers as to where the changes are to
take   place.      The   immense   cost of
armies,  navies and  war material, must
lie  paid  by  somebody,  but  who that
somebody will be, is the great question.
•\s there is much uncertainty about the
matter,  every one is doing his best to
defend   himself.      Belgium,   Holland,
Spain, Sweden and  Norway, Denmark
and all the other small states, are arming themselves as best they can.    England appears to be in a great hurry and
cannot wait for the product ol" her own
workshops ;   she has  issued a contract
for a very large number of Winchester
repeating  rifles which she can procure
at short notice in the United States.   It
is well to be prepared ior any emergency and she can  now take time in
making a better repeating rifle at home.
How  armies wil)  now  approach each
other,  it is very hard to say ; the days
of bayonet charges must surely have
passed   away ;   because,   no   soldiers
would ever live to cross bayonets ; cold
steel  is out of fashion.   The chances
are that  battles of the future will be
(ought with  artillery and at long range,
for guns can now be made to hit an object two miles distant.     It would seem
as if the world was reaching the milleni-
um, when fighting would cease and national quarrels be settled by arbitration.
Weapons have reached such a perfection of destruction  that  whole armies
would be  swept  into eternity, if they
could only be induced to come within
range of the guns.    Perhaps this great
improvement in arms of precision may
be  lhe best peacemaker, and nations
like Russia may be  induced to give up
war  as a trade.    She has carried it on
for the last  century and she will soon,
we think, find her business is " played
out."   War's alarms  are  much more
expensive than formerly, and peaceably
inclined  nations will  combine to prevent   them.      We   presume   General
Roberts will be on his  way to or, perhaps,  in  India by this time.    He has
much  to do on the  frontiers to place
them  in a state—not for offense but—
to repel invasion.    He has one satisfaction that his base of supplies is close at
hand and inexhaustible.    Soldiers and
material of all kinds can be placed at
his disposal in a few  days, sufficient to
drive the Russians to their own side of
the Caspian.   We suspect If the time
comes, that the British will not be alone
in this task ; China will have something
to say.
The lime  when the people by their
votes, will decide whether  Sir John A.
Macdonald or   Edward Blake, is to be
at the head of the Federal Government,
is not quite four weeks distant.     It will
be well   if the electors  weigh carefully
the result of iheir choice; a very few
votes will tip the  scale one  way or the
other, so that a vote should not be cast
regardlessly, under the impression that
it won't matter  for a single vote, which
side it is recorded for.    I,et us see now,
the effect of setting up Edward Blake as
the  Premier.    Our readers are ali, or
nearly ali,  aware, that   Mr. Blake is a
good lawyer and generally a very able
man, but he is no politician.    He lacks
the magnetism that would draw men to
him, he has no idea of generalship or
the way to place his forces so as to lead
theni  to victory.    His  whole mind is
concentrated on   Edward   Blake, that
gentleman can do no wrong,  although
every one else  is a poor weak  human
being who can only inspire the  divine
afflatus  from  Edward  Blake.     It requires no great amount of intelligence
to understand, that however estimable
such a man may be, himself, he is not
the person  to guide the destinies of a
great nation like the Dominion of Canada.    Let us mark well the fact that we
are just entering upon a year that may be
ever  memorable as the epoch  of the
greatest struggle that the  world Jever
saw, and which, in relation to the Dominion, may involve very serious questions, requiring careful diplomacy and
united  government for   their solution.
It would  never do to have Mr. Blake
giving up the daggers in the midst of
some terrible crisis, when prompt action
would  save this  vast  Dominion from
disaster, or place her on the pinnacle of
national greatness.    We must also look
at the character   and   status   of   Mr.
Blake's  lieutenants.    We must all remember how very weak and maladroit
as a finance  minister,  was Sir Richard
Cartwright.     He is endowed like John
Robson with considerable self appreciation and a wonderful facility for stringing words together, but he lacks brains.
He differs from honest John in being a
most worthy gentleman  and quite desirous,  if he had the savoire /aire, to
do right,  as a statesman.    Such  sous
eficiers as  Mr. Charlton, who, with a
great deal to say, has only one idea, are
a positive  misfortune for any Premier,
setting aside a man like Edward Blake,
who does not know, if he even desired,
how to place them on the right track.
Look on the other hand at the Conservatives.    Sir John is a host in himself.
His exquisite tact and fine appreciation
of every political  movement,  enables
him to anticipate and  render abortive,
every offensive movement of the enemy.
He uses his forces  without  ostentation
or hurry,  to defend the weakest points
of his position, or, by a well-masked
surprise,    to   capture   and   turn   the
enemy's guns  against   himself.      His
lieutenants are all  men of talent and
well versed in political manteuvers and
international law.    With a commander-
in-chief like Sir John, assisted by officers like Sir Charles  Tupper and Mr.
White,    id  gnus   omnee   the   Conservatives must not only be victorious, but
hold for a long time the confidence and
affection of the people.     It must be
borne in  mind that the Dominion is
not yet   sufficiently   strong   to   stand
alone, without the National Policy, and
that a great deal of bold diplomacy has
to be adopted to sustain the Dominion
in the high position where she   now
rests, and at the same time, steer the
ship of state clear of the rocks and
shoals of outside complications.   The
abilities of Quirk,  Gammon and Snap,
as concentrated in the person of Mr.
Mowatt, or the fine address and lawyerlike manner of laying his case before
the House of Commons possessed by
Edward Blake, are not the appliances
on which we can rely for future safety
and prosperity ; we must have ability of
the first order, with unity in the national
councils.     Our Government should be
like fine tempered steel—keen, pliant
and impenetrable.    Men however able,
whose views, in politics,  are bounded
by the limits ol their own province—
like John Bright with the rock-bound
coasts of England—are wholly unfit to
govern a great country like the Dominion, which will, in course of time, dominate this wide continent    He must be

From Cur Own OorrMfOftdoot
New Yatt,Jan. 19th, .887.
It would be a dull time indeed when
there was nothing politically stirring in thia
great Republic. There is something stirring
in tha*. direction now, for it is the time that
senatorial contests agitate many states.
These contents are more close and hitter this
year than the oldest inhabitant remembers
them to have been liefore, and although the
result in a national mat as respect the
strength of the two great parties in Congress
will not tend to much, if any, change, that
does not seem to lessen the interest with
which they are watched. Tin- -lose party
fights, as I have informed you, are confined
to New Jersey and Indiana, where the
chances of a Democratic succeeding a Ke
publican in one instance aud the reverse in
the other are discussed with great eloquence.
The content m New Vork is between Warner
Miller, the preaent aenator, :ind L*wi P.
Morton, late Minister to Trance, both millionaires. In fact it has now MOM to that
pass that none but a millionaire has much
chance nf being a senator, nor will there be
so long as senators are elected by state legislators.
The Father Mcfjlyuu   episode still holds
the public and is beginning to attract world-
w nle   attention.    Two   large meetings were
held in New Vork last night, which are but I
the   Iteginning   rd   a   series, iu  nupport of
Father McOlyun.    At both of   these   meet
ings none but Catholics spoke.    Archbishop
Corrif* in  and Rome   were  freely denounced
and    nne    speaker—editor   of   a   Catholic
weekly— said :    "As   much   leligiou   from
Rome as you please gentlemen of the Propaganda,  but none ef your politics."    This
sentiment   so tersely   expressed   voices the
opinions of an ever increasing body of Catho
lies in this country and it would not be surprising if   a schism be the result.    But then
the Propaganda is  politic and flexible when
it pleases and if it finds the storm is strong
it may bend   before   it or  compromise.    In
eithnr case its authority will be weakened.
It is appalling to see the number of people
out of work through strikes.    It is a mania
affecting   all   branches   of   industry and all
classes   of   workmen.    With the past  few
days, ice men have struck, children working
in   tobacco   factories, milliners, sandwheel
men, and a hundred other organized bodies,
old and young.    The colored  'longshoremen
of New Orleans struck on Saturday and attacked a gang of non-union brethren unload
ing   ships,   killing   and wounding several,
The coal handlers and miners strike has not
yet ended, for which I   am heartily sorry as
I have just  had to pay $19 for two tons of
red ash I could have obtained for $12.50 ten
days ago.    How I do wish I were a prophet
in these striking times.
I telographed you a short time since that
the Canadiau Parliament would be dissolved
immediately and that the electioua would
take place ou the 9th February. This, in
fact, win. the intention come to at a Cabinet
meeting, held on the 6th inst., but Sir John
chauged his mind next day, and resolved to
await the arrival of .Sir »'harles Topper from
Kngland. It is now officially announced
that the elections will l.e held on the 22nd
February, and the now Parliament will assemble on the 7th of April.

About thirty years ago the Rev,   Mr.    Durham, a | Methodist  clergyman,   went   from
London, England, as missionary to an Indian
trifat near Fort Simpson, British   Columbia.
This post is upon the Pacific, and upon   the
inlet which divide* Columbia  from   Alaska.
The Indians were   then cannibals.      I'nder
Mr. Durham's teaching the tribe   gradually
became civilized.    Laat year they numbered
a thousand souls.    They live in a well-built
village, with schools and churches.    Nearly
every adult Indian  owns a   home.     They
have wharves and tUhing statiousaud packing houses.    Since these latter  were   established the tribe bas   received   $300,000   for
canned aalmon shipped to Liverpool.      The
village was in every  respect well  ordered,
thoroughly civilized,   and   flourishing,   but
ludiaus, under Dominion law,   cannot   hold

quainted with the facilities for trade offered
at this place, and made entry  at  a   British
Columbia Land Office of  the   whole   tract.
It was sold to them,   and   with   it   all   the
homes, schools, stores, and packing   houses.
The Indians protested.    A gunboat went up
from Victoria aud brought down eight of the
i chief men, and they were thrown into   jail. ■
The case was appealed  to   Sir   John   Macdonald, and he confirmed the sale.      Appli
cation has been made by Mr. Durham,   who
is in Washington, for permission to have the
Indians move over into Alaska.     Senators
Teller and Plumb have advised   that   they
move at once   without (waiting   for   official
permission, as they are  sure  to be   given a
place to  live.     Meantime  some   American
tribes in Washington Territory have Invited

Au aualysis of the vote by which the
Army bill was rejected iu the Reichstag
offers little ground for the aasutnption that
Bismarck w ill be more successful in the new-
assembly to be chosen in February. It ia
true that the majority against the Chancellor
waa only about thirty, but this would have
been doubled had not the Socialists and the
ni.-inlii'ii for Alt. ace-Lorraine refrained from
voting. Not fifteen, therefore, but at least
thirty seats must be gained by the Cn
servativea aud National Liberals at the coming election; for whatever loases may lie
incurred by the Clericals are likely to be
made up by the Socialists, who are even
more inflexibly opposed to the Government's
The chance of winning at the ballot box
being so slight, the Chancellor will be apt
to use the uext four week in preparing the
public miu I, not fora second dissolution of
the Reichstag, but for a usurpation of the
power which it claims over the purse. The
issue to be pressed upon the country was defined hy Bismarck when he asked, "Is the
army the Kaiser's or the Parliament's?" The
question for all English-speaking peoples
Beems to have been irrevocably answered
two and a half centuries ago by the execution of Charles I. We have learned to think
it the fundamental principle of constitutional
government that the money requited for
military purposes shull be voted by the people's representatives—that in this sense the
army is the creature of Parliament and not
of the Executive. Without such a safe
guard legislative independence is a sham.

I'he iee palace iu Montreal is rising gracefully and rapidly in anticipation ot the coming carnival. Of course it will surpass anything on ice ever witnessed in the world before. The Marquis of Lausdowne and suite
have taken houses in Montreal for tbe
month of February and there will be rare
timet in skating, snow-shoeing and tobogganing. Poor British Columbians < You
ain't got no ice palaces. By the way, tobogganing ia uow all the rage iu these northern
states and every one wears blankets aud
talks about slides. Tobogganing slide*

ice palaces are concerned. St, Paul will
simply be incandescent with ice and electricity, but not being ho near New York,

As spring approaches the notes of war in
Europe are more distinctly heard. The preparations for the mighty conflict are being
pushed on with feverish haste, while the
diplomats smile and lie about the peace
which they know is about to spread its
white wings and fly to parts unknown. The
dissolution of the German Reichstag hy Bismarck, because it refused to vote as he
pleased, confirms the fear of those who all
along believed in wm, It is thought the
new Reichstag will not be more amenable
and then ultimately the Emperor, who loves
peace so much, will have to imprison a few
score of members and adopt the role of
Charles I. Meanwhile, the French Chamber
gives Boulanger all he requires with lavish
hands and, of ■-nurse, this irritates Bismarck
all the more, It is pretty well agreed on all
■ Mi'- that the present Tory ministry cannot
last and that Parliament will soon be dissolved anrl the country appealed to once
more. Salisbury is really iu a minority at
present. He cannot depend upon his Lilier
al-Uniouist allies in the strong foreign or domestic policy which ia required at present,
and ;he would rather he dead (politically)

parliamentary inn	
accepted without qualifications in the king
dom of Prussia. King William has persistently affirmed that, iu spits of the eon-
cessions made in the Prussian Constitution,
the sovereign retained the power of creating
au army by his individual fiat in case the
legislature should refuse to provide for it.
It waa on this theory that Bismarck acted
when he ruled without a budget in the four
years preceding Sadowa, and, although he
was subsequently glad to see the Landtag
pass a bill of indemnity, he would not even
then acknowledge that as a matter of principle it was indispensable. If, therefore, it
were the Prussian Landtag, instead of the
I'iui-i in-muni** Heichstag, whose powers
wore now in question, a colorable pretext
might be fount! for disputing its rights to
regulate military expenditure.
Hut Kaiser William's relation to federated
Cermany seemH essentially different from his
relation to his Prussian subjects. He is
Kmperor not by conquest, but by* election ;
hia imperial powers are not original, but
delegated, and cannot transcend those
which the princes, who elected him, themselves possessed. Now, although the right
of the people to control the outlay for the
national defence may have been disputed hy
the Prussian sovereign and by the late King
of Bavaria, it is unquestionably recognized
in the Constitutions of Baden, Wurtemberg,
and Saxony. So far as tbe subjeots of these
States are concerned, they could not be
divested of their power over the purse by
the proclamation at Versailles, or any ageu«y
short ot their own volition expressed in
.i.nui.liiM'Mi-, of their respective Constitutions. Al a mutter of fact, they have
delegated their power to tuv themselves for
military objects not to the Kaiser, but to
their representatives in the lower House of
the i ..mu.in Federal Parliament.
It is true that a large proportion ofthe
petitions sent to the Reichstag iu favor of
the army bill come from Wurtemberg, hut
this only proves that the inhabitants of
South Germany fear they might have to
bear the brunt of a French invasion. For
the moment they are carried away by panic,
but when they are awakened to the purport
of Bismarck's threat to raise au army in
detiance of the Reichstag, they will see that
South German liberties are in grave peril.
It has been suggested in some of the tier-
man newspaper*- that Prince Bismarck
might svoid the semblance of encroachment
on tho constitutional rights of non-Prussian
States by imposing the cost of the desired
addition to the army on the Prussian treasury alone, The assumption is that a major
ity of the Prussian Landtag would sanction
this expedient, trusting in the eventual consent of central and south German legislatures to bear their proportions of the expense, But this would only substitute one
constitutional difficulty for another. If
Prussia has a right to raise a military force
independent of that belonging tothe empire,
so haa Bavaria or .Saxony, and the time
might come when such a precedent would be
fatal to the interests of the bouse of Hohen-
zollern. So that, from whatever point of
view we look at it, Bismarck's situation
seems awkward. —AM'. ."?»».

iactor in the game that militates against Sir
•lohn ia the inexplicable conduct of the
Toronto ,MaU which tiied to bean staunch an
advocate of the Conservative party. In tho
Ontario Provincial elections of four yen** ago
the Mod rode the Protestant horse with
great speed. It took the ground that the
Catholic Hiuraruhv whk running tin* Ontario
Oovernment and it came eut ihiy after day
in abuse of Archbishop Lynch ami Oliver
Mowat, and the Catholic Church. It wan
thought the notes of alarm it Hounded would
have tbe effect of uniting ProtcHtant.-. agaiii.it
Oliver .Mowat but it wan disappointed. Pro-
teatant Conservative.* voted against Mowat
aud Protectant Liberal" for him and he was
i etuined to power by the aame mil jni ity. At
the lab* election the Mail having meanwhile
-■hanged editor-*., the same tactic*, wore
practised with very disastrous results for
while Protestants kept to their party lines
Catholic--, voted almost *-■■ matte for Mowat
who wan triumphantly unstained. What
the Mail managed to achieve win the intense
disgust of the Quebec Conservatives who
< omplaiued to Sir John that his organ was
ruining the party wheu the truth is tliat it
waa uot <Wir John's organ at all, it wu only
i lieorgan aud property of Mr. Hunting whose
head is sore from the mistaken idea that tho
party neglected himself and his paper. Aud
uow wheu the damage is done the .Mail
wheela half round and pronounces itself entirely independent. It is a pity it did not
do this four yeals ago. A new Conservative
orgaii in Toronto is discussed. The writs
for the new Parliament are not yet issued
but they are expected every day. They
will lie issued 1 presume when Sir .lohn

Striken iu the United States are assuming
alarming proportions. It is the very depth
of winter and yut in Pennsylvania alone
100,000 men have gone voluntarily out of
employment at a loss tothemsclvcxHiul their
famitiesofa million dollars a. week. The
collieries in Pittsburg, the iron mine.*, and
branches of industry dependent on the coal
supply, are lying idle mid coat in New Vork
has jumped from six to nine dollars a ton in
a few day .; with the prospect of going as
high aa ten or twelve, next week. They
say it in a bad wind that doesn't blow some
body good and certainly the big and little
coal dealers cannot complain. They arc
making fortunes while poor people, including the striker* are suffering from cold, and
a very cold winter it in.
There has been some new work within the
past few days in   Indiana and   New   Jersey.
Both states are close in politics,   sometimes
giving Republican,   other times Democratic
majorities.      At    tic    fall    elections    the
Democrats elected 21* and the l.cpublieans 25*
iu New .Jersoy with twu labor  candidates to
the state legislature and   (here is   where the
trouble came in.    Heaven   and   earth   and
another warm   region were  moved by   cadi
party to secure n majority so that the victors
might elect * United States   Senator.     Kach
party held   a caucus   the   morning   of   the
assembling of the   new  legislature   to name
its state otliuurt- and devise  means to   defeat
the  enemy.    When   the   Republican*   had
caucused enough they went to the legtslatl
cliainlM'r where the Democrats were installed
ami demanded   that business   begin.     Ihen
the Democrats answered roughly saying tliey
must sit in caucus all the winter if necessary
ami as thcOovernor isa Democrat and aided
and abetted them they fancied they were all
right     Poor deluded   Democrats !    The Republicans knowing a trick worth two nt that.
aud having scooped ill tht-   laltor and   one ot
tlie Democratic   members adjourned   to the
Speaker's room   ami elected the   part ul tin
■state ticket.    When the Democrats heard of
what tbey were   doing they    prevailed upon
the   Governor to   send   lor   policemen  who
■ .une and with the assistance of some  of the
Democrats and with revolver.*.,forced the Republicans back to their lair and tried   to got
the labor candidate*,   whom  they detained
outside,   to   recant.    But   tbe Republicans
were not nou-plussed.    Not by   auy   means.
They raised the windows which   looked into
the streets had a ladder placed outside, com*
municated with their friends who gave them
revolvers   and other   "refreshments/'   and
better still   procured    the   balance   of   the
candidates to   complete   their  election and
shoved theie in through the windows.   \\ hen
after a while the rival tactions met in   conclave   you   can   more   easily   conceive  the
disgust of the Democrats than I can ilescrila*
it, but the victory being  with the    l.cpuhli
cans they could a lion I to be   more peaecahte.
and they were     Pretty near a counterpart
of this play   WM noted in   Indiana   where
there were also revolvers in the air.     It is a
great country.    It is; it is.    -Outsiders may
be in   Ignorance   why   such  lierce   contests
rage in tho state legislatures fur   supremacy.
Hut itJH easy   of explanation.    Next to the
Presioenoy the   position ofa Coited   States
Senator  is most to be   coveted.    Ol course
the salary   of  .-niOOO   does   not count   a* if
United States Senators are not millionaires,
they are   wealthy   men.    It   is  the   social
position and the, voice given in the affairs of
the nation   that make   it so liereely   sought
after.   There are only seventy-eight senators
and   tiiey   have   au   enormous   amount   of
patronage at  their   disposal.    Indeed   they
are the most powerful legislative body in the
world after the Uritish   Mouse nl Commons.
The state   legislatures  elect   United States
Senators and   have when  the   parties ill the
legislature are  pretty   evenly   divided   the
battle in tierce. •
It doen undoubtedly look like war iu the
spring. Count Von Moltke and Prince
Bismarck made speeches iu the Reichstag
yesterday which caused a flutter uti over
Kurope and made stocks tumble. The Reichstag is unwilling to grant the supplies increasing the Oerman army and Bismarck is
resolved it shall, of else be dissolved. Me
says mi iu very decided language and every
one believes him. The opponents of the
measure are the Socialists the Progressists.
and the Catholics, or part of the centre led
by Heir Windhorst. Not that they are not
willing to grant the supplies only they
stipulate the addition is to be kept up for
three years only. This isa compromise, for
they refused at first point blank. Hut the
Chancellor is not satisfied with the compromise. He must have all or a dissolution.
European opinion is divided as to whether
the Reichstag will bend, for Windhorst ia

Senator Maxoy went to Texas in pursuit of

rivals caused some amusement.
Senator Maxoy heard of Mr. Kuagan'n departure about twenty minutes after tho
laftcr's train steamed away from the station.
and immediately he ordered his trunk und

Austin. Mr. Reagan bad about three hours

The House of Representatives was much
stirred up over the Antl Polygamy bill.
When it e-ame up for consideration on
Wednesday, the   delegate   from    Utah, Mr.
('nine, took the  M ■ in a long speech which
commanded the closest attention, lie said
the measure waa mi-Democratic, uii-Amcri
cau, and wantonly destructive of human
lights ; that it set at naught the immutable
principle upon which the common rights of
until were founded, and turned the Mormons
ami their c*hurch over to insatiable spoilers.
Delegate Caine attracted the whole House
around him uml excited thu interest of the
galleries during his spirited defence of the
Salt Lake hierarchy.
There was a good deal of ditlerence of
opinion among members touching the constitutionality of some features of the Mormon bill, It pro|H>ses to extinguish what is
known as the Mormon Church, and scatter
or divide its property among those who do
not believe in its tenets or practices. Some
members argued that the constitution, which
prohibits the establishment of any church or
form of religion, was to lie invoked to disestablish and extirpate an objectionable
creed, and that this wan striking rather too
deeply at tbe rools of religious freedom.
Others argued that it was useless to cull thin
bill an assault upon a religion. It was an
assault upon a band of men organized for
the purpose of exclusively controlling a
territory which belonged to the people of
the United States, and which should be free
and open to all.

graceful belle, with a guod style of carriage

Rut how is it accomplished ': I will tell you.
The sec rot lies in what is termed a seamed
underskirt. The modish girl has not exactly put on ti misers, nor yet donned the
divided skirt of the dress reformers, but she
has had a seam run iuto her petticoat, for
stylish occasions.
This division of the garment into two
sections is only for a short distance, at the
knee level, and itsefl'cct is to make the drest*
conform to the gait of the girl. She haa to
modify, of course, the usual process of
dropping the skirt over her head, but no
matter for that so long as her loveliness of
contour is heightened.

It is wonderful with what celerity aud
certainty the benefits of a great discovery
originated in England are communicated to
our possessions in all parts of tlie world. Ae
the pulsations of the heart wend the stream
uf life through every fibre of the frame, so
docs each beneficial development in science,
emanating frmn Britiah genius aud skill,
disseminate its blessings throughout tbe
whole British Empire. The general use io
all out colonies of Holloway's celebrated
medicines is a striking illustration ot this
fact. Starting, forty years age, from the
great centre, with the sanction of the home
tnilbon.4 as t heir credentials, they have found
their way into tbe remotest sections of that
vast colonial circle upon which the sun never
sets. The axiom tbat greatness does not
receive doe honor iu itn own country, faila
in tho casu of Thomas Holloway. Hia new
and simple, yet rapid and effective remedies,
were thoroughly appreciated at the outset
by the people of Eugland of every class, and
foreign experience haa merely confirmed the
verdict of the British public.
Ttie Canadas, the least remote of our Important transatlantic posscasionw, wore the
first to echo the laudations bestowed upon
the preparations here. They appear to
have displayed tht: tuetfuetivo prescription
of the provincial pharmacopoeia with singular dispatch. The stereotyped preparations
for fever and ague, dyspepsia, scrofula, kc.
were at once superaedud by thorn, and the
press announced their cures aa the com
uieiiccmeut of a new era in the sanitary
history of British America.
To suppose that the colonial popularity of
the pA'cpai ulionn ia the mure reflection of her
European fame, wonM Im to undervalue
the sagacity and the independence, of onr
brethern beyond the sea. They may receive
our opinions with reepeot, but? they test
them in the crucible of experiment before
adopting them. They try our remedies for
the disorders of the body politic, and of the
human frame by tlie aame rule. Where our
system of jurisprudence tits their necessities
they apply it, and when our medicines provj
to Ite specifics for the leading diseases of
tho noil and elihiatc, thoy joyfully accept
and employ them. Hence wc consider the
popularity of Holloway's ren;3d!ea J« the

Thia is well sot forth iu a work on " Lea
Bourgeois  d'Autrefoia," by  M. A. Babeau,
iu   which   the   author   describea   at great
length the fashions of the middle classes.
In the seventeenth eentury, he savs, scholars
were   easily    recognized    by   their  dreas,
which  differed   from that of   the merchant
and nobleman-    People of the lower middle
classes had, as a rule, three suits of clothes
-one for winter, another for summer, and a
third   for   mourning,    Tbe   different  suite
were  pnt on at a certain   date each year;
their   summer   garments   were   worn from
May 16 to the end of October, and the rest
of the year winter drees was worn.    Mourning   was   always worn   for   several   years.
Every suit waa first worn on one side, then
turned, and   finally it waa  out  up for garments for ohildren.    The sword, originally
only worn by nobles, was soon assumed by
the middle classes, in  many places, unfortunately, not aa an ornament,  but as a necessary weapon.     On the whole,  the middle
classes were  very modest in their apparel,
with tho one exception that their wigs were
very expensive.   The coiffure of women was
mostly more sensible than that of men.    At
the   time of   Mme. de Sevigne and Mme.
Pompadour no higb chingnona were wore by
the women of   Uw people,   but the hair was
simply arranged under cape, bows, or hoods.
Tha colors  most worn  by theae claaaee were
brown  and   gray, and even shortly before
the revolution no woman from the provinces
dared   to   wear   white  ribbons,   and sveu
colored onee were looked upon as eccentric.
At   the   age  of   45 the woman assumed a
matronly dress,  avoiding light colors and a
youthful cut to her dress.    As a character is ■
tic of   the last   two  oen tunes   M,   Babeau
points out that men's drees waa much more
costly than women's, and that, contrary to
