She   had   her   ideal,   and     the  man whom  she  would   accept   must  be a paragon  of virtue.   There1 were  several   things   which   she  would   overlook,   notably   smoking,  so   long as  it wnsgood cigars.  In one clause describing      thc  man  she  desires,   the  writer says:  HUNGARIANS INDIGNANT  AT PREFECT'S ORDER  . of at least one of  the   dr.n-irs  of    a  prize,  a box  of cigars,  by  Mr,   John  Tha,   was   k ft  o'T   the  programme by  the committee.  j "He must; be. neat: must he strong,  that I may he guarded; must be  wise, that I may be guided; must, be  affectionate. that I may be -loved,  and must have superior I nowledof,  that I may look to him for knowledge,  information and explanation."  j  New York, Oct. 3.���������A .special cable despatch to the World from Bii-  da Pest, Hungary, says that furious  indignation has been aroused by the  police prefect's order forbidding the  coalition and socialist ti ixhhghtipro  cession arranged for last night, but  now postponed. Thc coalition leaders are doing everything in their power to preserve order and prevent  bloodshed. Francis Kossuth, the  leader of the Hungarian party of independence, made the following state  nu-nt  last  night:  '���������We     arc  about  to   issue . a manifesto'protesting against the suppression of Tuesday's  demonstration, but  we  obey  because,   as leaders  bf ��������� the  constil'ional   movement,   we will  not  assume    responsibility   for  disorder  and bloodshed for  the sake of a relatively minor .celebration.      Tne procession  on   October sixth,   taking thc.  form, of paying homage to the memory  of     the Hungarian  myrtcrs  of  1818 and  lS-'O     win scarcely be pro-  "hihited, but if it is forbidden, we will  hold     it     nevertheless,  because such  j prohibition is a direct .denying of our  j historical national  identity.    I  cannot     foresee the   cobsequences,    but  j the people will be unarmed.   We are  not a  '*party seeking    armed revolution.    The people do- not /wish it, for  circumstances  do not demand it. AU  the Hungarian  aspirations  will     be  realized by passive resistance and re  fusing money for soldiers,  using both  our   own ancient constitution,       to  which the lung 'is bound,  and the reestablished  machinery  of our   internal   local governments,   which,      together , will .enable us to waken and  disturb  Austria financially  and  com-  pell  final redress.  "'Jhat is the whole coalition pro-,  gramme,     and  in   the nature        cf  things, it must prevail.    Therefore il  and  the party continue our more advanced  yet still constitutional movement      to complete   Hungary's  independence on  aU points,  internal and  external, saving only  that the Hungarian     king  remains  couicidentaUy  the Austrian  Emperor."

KEEP DOWN  YOUR WRATH  E\i(lentiy the editor of thc Week is  out after thc scalp of the editor of  Urn Herald. The provocation may  have been severe, m" this The Ledger  does not assume, to speak, bul some  of the vituperative language used in  the Week is not in go0d taste, neither  is thc sneer atthe man educated in  "thc little red school house," It is  not every one who can send out as  ncafciy printed a paper as the Week,  but there are others which do not  look as wen yet give out more instructive lessons through their columns. It is not given to all t0 be  college men, yet" ' others wield trenchant pens who have nenc-r gone further than the little red house.  Speaking generally, and not of this  particular case, it is not proof of  gcod journalism to attack severely  another paper which sees according  lo its ''gbt and prints accordingly.  Our advice to our friends or thc .Week  and of the Herald isto keep their angry passions down. Anger interferes  with digestion and induces apoplectic  conditions. Furthermore,   personal  troubles will not interest your home  readers, -and thc great woikl at fi  large win never know of it. unless  by chance it is through seaming Uiis  kindly meant comment in the Daily  Ledger.  Tlie news of the settlement of the  labor 1 roubles at Nanaimo is received  with much satisfaction by the coal  miners and business men of Ladysmith. It is believed generally that  ��������� the settlement of tlie late difficulty  in our neighboring city will be better for our entire Island. "While work-  in the mines here has been remarkably steady since last February, in  fact, so .far as we now recall, there  has not been more than one or two  days 'that    thc     "no work" whistle  ha-;   been     blown,       it is  not,    ai-  i  fogefher because thc Nanaimo  mines  have not been making their usual output.   This  may have had some clTcct,  but thc facts arc.    J hat thc principal  market  for Vancouver coal  is Frisco,  and San Francisco will have no other  coal for domestic purposes than that  pf     Vancouver    if      it     is   retainable.   Thc cold  weather is  coming  on.  and an  along thc coast cities and ni  southeastern Alaska our coal is in demand.   Some     miners     have  worked  more shifts in each  month  since  last  February Ihan they have cared 1o do.  Mon cannot forever continue to work-  as     steadily     as have thc Extension  miners  for     some months  past.   Life  is  Loo  short     1o spend  each  day  underground,   so even in the improbable  cveni of thc coal output of the mines  exceeding  at  times   thc demand.   Uicic  will be no    regrets on the part of the  Wellington   Collieries   Company's   Employes lhat Lhc mines of Nanaimo are  "again  at     work and  that  "town"  is  again on the road Lo prosperity.

CLOSES   CHURCH  BECAUSE  OF  IRREVERENCE  OF WOMEN  Rev.   G.   M.   Parsons, vicar of St.  Cranloc's,    Newquay,   Cornwall, is a  stern      diseipiijian'an. Newquay     and  Us delightful  neighborhood appear to  oe   mil    fust now    of ladies carrying  out     thc   new treatment of the hair,  winch    consists   of walking about everywhere    halirss,    and, according to  Air.    Parsons,    they   decline tQ make  an exception oi church-time.  "Air.  Parsons lias vainly  recalled to  them   St. Paul's   dictum in the First  Epistle to   thc   Corinthians, and  has  icinonstrated    during    seven  seasons  without  effect.       Now" he has closed  (he church,    except at the hours    of  Divine service.    Passing  the  following  notice     The church   as hitherto  been  frreiy open.    It   is deplorable that it  cannot remain so,  as  it should.  This  is wholly    due to tlie   irreverence of  numbers of women  who,  walking  un-  roveiod,    presume    to     enter  God's  home    with no    sign of reverence or  modesty upon their heads.  "A small veil or kerchief would betoken this and he suflicient, but re-  monslranee during several seasons  has proved in va'iv. Such a refusal of  men -o' offering the customary respect of uncovering would justify  iheir exclusion from God's house. Thc  coriesponding refusal by women to  cover their heads obliges it. The  church is closed with deepest regret1  and'shame for the cause,     i  It  will  mean  much   loss  to the  church of the devotion and offerings  of the reverently disposed. It is hoped  however, that- the solemn protest  made in God's name win bring thoughtless   persons   to a better sense of  men with regard to the costumes  worn by bridesmaids, who have lately, in increasing numbers, discarded  hats v'or veils, small caps, and even  wreaths of flaweis. At Lord and  Lady Hjde's wedding. Io mention the recent example, the bridesmaids  were inlinitly definit in small wreaths  of forget-mc-hots.  It will be noted, howc\er, that,  strictly speaking, St. Paul's words  apply only to women who enter a  church to join in the service.  METHODIST CHURCH  BURNED AT CARMAN.  Winnipeg, Man.,  Oct.  3.���������The handsome Methodist  Church  at   Carman,  Man.,  was   destroyed by fire at     an  early   hour   this   morning.    The blaze  was  first discovered  at 2.30  pjr'clock  and  quickly  spread   to -the  stable of  Mr.   Saunders,   where  his horse and  ���������buggy   were  housed,   and   these .  two  were consumed.
