OiJfECTS OF TRADES UHI0H&  Writing. to tho Independent from Detroit. Mr. W. ]>. Mahon, president of  tho International Street Hallway Men's  Union, says regarding the labor situation:  The persecutions that trades unionism  Is passing through, both from the capitalists and  the politicians, as tho refining Ure,  and  tho  substantial  gain  that  is being inndo overy day  by tho movo-  qacnt     under    such    persecution demonstrates that wo aro correct and founded  ipon a foundation that no can      stand  'Jupon  for timo to  connl.'

Ono of tho  causes of tho present, unsatisfactory condition of society was tho universal snob**  bism that prevailed over the wliolo Anglo-Saxon raco.  Tlio other duy, anya tlio Whitehall Be-  vicw, u contemporary announced aa  fro.sli nuiVB that tlio king luul the statue  of John Urown remove^ from Iinlinor.il.  This wan dono oil thu very first occasion  his majesty visited his newly-acquired  Scotch scut after the death of Queen  Victoria. Ilia;majesty concluded that  his mother being dead, there was no  reason for perpetuating further the  memory of Urown, just us lie reopened  and redecorated Brown's room ut Windsor Castle, wliich had always remained  locked since liis death, as stated by all  iitiirepnperti at the time.  THE LAID SYSTEM  of m Mm.  (Continued from Lust Week)  tions to legislate along such lines and  iin such manner as they may see fit to  Jcgiblate, That policy is, in my opiu-  ���ion, tho coriect one, and the strength  Uiat we aie gaining every moment  'shows it to bo true.  OUIl CIVIC BOTCHES.  Some   of : the .aldermen   feci"', sore/that  tho  control    of  hospital     affairs     havo  passed out of  their hands,   and;    won't  have  any   thing     more  to   do  with  tho  .ambulance.     If  they  had   been  alive   to  the occasion and remedied thc grievances  -which existed at thc human     slaughter  Jiouec  at  tho proper  time the     enraged  ,,   electorate would havo  never passed  the  iiospital   by-law.     When  it 'comes to  - big matleis the aggregation in control  .at tho^city hall don't amount to much.  But they aie long on 'cheeseparing ��� nnd  chcapjohn methods, such as ~ tinkering1,  with the discipline of, the police, patching up holes in thc pavement just to  aavo 'expense, raising tho dickens in  general with helpless employee!:, regulating the whiskey trnlllc, or rather attempting to, showing favoritism in "giving out the city advertising and other  .such  like  work. ,  ft  CIIINKSK MADE TENTS.  There is one industry In this city that  badly needs protection : from"-the   Chinese  evil of cheap labor, und that is sail and  tent making..   A' largo' number.of -Chinese-made1 tents  aro7 used  in the  different  parts/of the province by     workingmen.  "We     understand;   tliat   there 'is " a local  firm  who  scads  travelers  all  ovcr  British  Columbia soliciting orders for theso  tents.     If a label  wcic~attached  to  tho  canvas sa>ing whether or not  they arc  jnadc'by  Chinese.'--'or    white labor,     it  would  go "a long way towards protcct-  i1  ing the white sail and tent makers.  Wo  would especially, request that tho miners as well as otheis, give this matter  serious attention and* try to abato this  evil. It would cost them nothing to do  this, and "by so doing they would help  white home industry.   WINNIPEG LABOR PARTY.  The Winnipeg Labor Purty is now in :i  prosperous condition.

A atriko lias occurred at Sunderland,  Eng., in connection with tho Institute  for the Blind, which, though founded on  philanthropic lines, practically supports  itself by the sale of articles manufactured  by "the inmates.   The committee gave  notice lo thu men in tlie department in  which ships' coik fenders are made of a  reduction of wages from lis. to 10s. per  week.  Theso men appealed to the National League of tin* Blind,'the general  secretary of which has failed to induce  the committee to withdraw tho reduction.   As a   consequence,   thc   fender  makers struck work and the employees  in other departments threaten to follow  suit.  title  that  the  improvements   have  been  completed.

A MiX'liiro l'inu;i;niy  It was Sir William Culvillo of Oil-  villo Manor who llrsl. discovered Si  Kiwi* Alba no. Sir William prilled himself on being the patron of struggling  genius nnd bo gave liini tin* imimuiIkk'.oii  to perpetuate lu mui-hlc Hit* lit'iuit}' of  bis only daughter, tin* l.iuiy Margaret.  Tlio sculptor was it man of twenty-  eight, willr n fait* face and an urlslo-  emtio hearing. There could bo no  question I lint ho was u real artist with  thi! chisel. Ills enthusiasm promised  n masterpiece. It was arranged that  ho sliould slay nt tlio unuior while hi.s  woll; was hi progress.  lt proved a lengthy task, but lhe sit*  tings woro anything but tiresome to  tho yount; luily. Signoi* Albnno w;is  both well traveled nml woll read, mnl,  while ho know how to keep, the moments from drug gin)., he yot preserved  his attitude of deepest respect. Lndy  Margaret looked upon him with reverence ns n genius. Perhaps his youth  and good looks contributed somewhat  to her enjoyment in tlie sittings, but  this pride forbade hor to acknowledge.  The bust when finished wns nil that he  had promised. If either of the two  young people sighed that the long  mornings iu tho studio would be no  more, tliey gave no sign.  Three months afterward the futher  and daughter were passengers on a  steamer for the orient. They had been  out three days beforo they discovered  that the sculptor was ou board. He  explained that through tbo death of a  relative he had come into a fortune  and had set out on a tour around the  world. Sir: William was rather chagrined to find his protege so I'm* beyond  tho need of his help. While lie congratulated him on his good fortune,  therefore,-his manner yot conveyed the  fact that be did not consider that his  change in prospects entitled him to  treatment as an equal. The Lady Margaret was n most well brought up  young woman, and she unhesitatingly  followed her father's cue.  Two days later, as she sat alone on  deck. Signoi* Albnno approached' her  with the assurance of an old friend nnd  entered Into conversation.'

Tin ie was n hurried scuttling of the  lookers. Tho whole ship was soon in  iiiimiotion. discussing plans for his  capture. Hut he was armed and ovl-  soiiily mini and lionco must be cajoled  ���.liber than forced.  At quarter to ll ho called to the whispering group outside the saloon door:  ������Gentlemen, we have fifteen minutes  'eft. 1 warn every oue uot'to hasten  the calamity by tampering with my  stateroom door. If you open thut door,  yon will explode thirty pounds of dynamite at once."  Thero was something theatrical libit nil. and yet the menace In tho I.  bin's voice brought a shiver. The cap.  lain iiiaile a sign to the ship's carpenter, and they silently went below.  Avoiding the filial dour, the carpenter  feverishly begun work on the room  partition, lt scorned hours before he  had cut n hole large enough to allow  lils body to slip through. Just clear of  the door was the signer's steamer  trunk. Two wires ran from the door  to tlie trim.;, nud from the interior  came a noise like the ticking of a  clock. When the wires hnd been cut,  the captain suid:  "Softly, uow. Up with the cover.  Ah! Here ls tho clockwork, nnd a  handkerchief among tho wheels docs  the business."  At the same moment the report of a  revolver rang out. Up in the saloon  the clock was pointing to 0. The mad  lover hnd pressed; the weapon to his  temple, ;pulled the trigger and fallen  back n corpse. The white faced passengers walled tremblingly for another report, but instead thoy heard a wouinn's cry. Tbo Lady Margaret had  fallen, fainting. In the doorway.  Wns there dynamite in the trunk?  Truly ninety pounds of it But for the  coolness of the captain 400 lives Would  have been sacrificed to the disappointment of a madman.  And did tho Lndy Margaret yield at  the last.moment? That is the secret  locked ln her own proud heart.  BuptlHni  ot  llells.  Bells wore solemnly baptized like  children, a custom which is still extant in the Itoinan church. This Is  probably not n primitive practice and  cannot be traced further back than the  reign of Charlemagne. It Is Iirst distinctly mentioned in thc time of Popo  .lolin Xlll. (9SS), when he gave his  own name to the great bell of the Lateral! church. Sleidan gives nn account  of the ceremonial to be observed: "First  of all the bells must be so hung thnt  the bishop may be able to walk round  them. When he has chanted a few  psalms in a low voice, he mingles water and salt and consecrates them, diligently sprinkling the bell with the mixture both inside and out. Then be  wipes It clean and with holy oil' describes on it the Qgui'c . of' the cross,  prnyingthe while that when the bell Is  swung up und'sounded faith and charity may abound among men. all the  snares of the devil ��� hail, lightning,  Winds, storms���may be rendered vain  and all unseasonable weather be softened, v After ho has wiped off that  cross of oil from the rim ho forms sev-  eu otlier crosses on it, but only one,of  thorn within. The bell is censed, more  psalms are sung and prayers are put  up for Its welfare.    After; this feasts  and banqueting.? are celebrated Just .ns  at a  wedding." ��� Gentleman's  Magazine.

There are no seats  provided for the auditors; consequently they sit on the floor. The stages revolve like a locomotive'turntnble, bave  no drop curtains, but use sliding ones  Instead. Their musical Instruments  consist principally of n kind of cross  between a mandolin nnd a banjo, with  a metal drum nnd some other unpronounceable Instruments for accompaniment.

From the market reports one might  conclude thut there has been; an  enormous wave of calves sweeping  over the country.

SWAB'S PALACE CAR.  we rend of the worry and cure a millionaire  has lo undergo, to invest hie money, to keep  from being murdered, etc., etc. Ue litis no time  forvnmuions, like the wage earner, tliey xtcll  you.   Now, this may be true of the millionaire.  Never having, ut one timo, that   amount1 of  woilth, will not say anything about the worry,  but will say that when some of tho world'B  millionaires go on a trip that they,do not have  to ride ln a box car, nor ask tbe section man for  a "lift" on the "baud car.". Charles M. Schwab,  the many times millionaire, is having completed, a private car, by tho Pullman Car Company  In the States, that is to be tho finest thing on  wheels.   Whether ho played the '-wheel"  at  Monto Carlo or not, is none of my business, but  ray friend Schwab, ahem!   is certainly going  to ho on   velvet���excuse tho slang���when bo  travels.  The interior in to be Louis Fifteenth  style. Two brass.bedsteads which are to cost  $1,000  each,    and   are;, handsomely    chased.  Mr. Schwab's room ls in rod, his wife's In blue  and the diuing:room in green. .This isprobably  the time to take a littlo breath and consider  carefully this noblo picture. : Does ono sleep  any more or less soundly In u bedstead tlmt cost  a thousand dollar)*?  Is it any satisfaction if a  .spreading rail shoots you Into eternity, to know  that you have Just loft a Louis.Fifteenth inter,-,  lor?  And who shall explain ,thc  triplicate,  mystery of the colors of ttose rooms?  Ked is'  .the color of gold, and perhaps tluilt is why Mr.  Schwab ohoosea it lor his special tint.   As to  ,thocolor ot his wife's room, let us not even  whisper any suggestion tonchlnc the tone of  her hosiery; let us rather suggest that it Is her  romantic way of expressing gratitude: for; the  fbluy steel thiit:his gone so far to: put, her into  ithls palace cur.   The diniug-room is in green.  A eynical old painter of.no repute was' in the  ;habit of culling all landscapes "salads".' The  color' scheme   of   the   Schwab   dining-room  suggests sulads.  Let us hopo the Schwabs'can  mix u good salad.; It is a thing that is a ,crime  to delegate to another.. Kven u billlonairo may  mix a very bad suluuV   An ordinary   citizen  with debts and frayed cuffs 'cua walk around  the millionaire, as likely as not, when It comei,  to composing a salad.   Who shall say but that  tbe sahul is as important ns the,syndicate?  Both nourish on young; greon things, but there  ail coinpiiriscin;ends.; Tlie decoration'^for the  ceiling of this car have been done by a lloston  woman named Friable.- Tliero ls no dangeriof  bean-eating Boston getting left on this car, as  Schwab himself is a slippery bean, ns thc courts  of tlie United States well know.: But where ib  Whistler nil this time? , Is he shuddering in  tho old nge of his fame, ono wonders, lest the  glory of tho peacock room bo eclipsed?   Well,  he will have to wait und see.   But one finds for  such splurglngs as this Schwab car anything  except envy.  A man, rugged or iu millions,  has but one appotite, one body to"-, comfort, one  set of senses to satisfy.  The feast of Lucullus,  dished in surroundings smacking of thc Louvre,  will matter nothing to the man  who 'has no  appetite.  Nor red rooms, nor blue rooms, nor  green rooms can secure a peueful mind or sound  slumber.

Long distance swimming is an art  in whicli few on thig side ot the big  pond lnwo attained n pronounced degree of accomplishment, and this is  naturally a disappointment to natatorial enthusiasts who would like to  see this brunch of the great sport developed, Aside from the very evident utility of llie pastime from a  life saving viewpoint, long distance  swimming is a'superb developer of  tlie body and of tlio lungs, giving a  ninn hardihood th'at will prove of in-  noi.nii;x, thi: grkat i:v<ii.i��h  long iiis-  TANCi: SWIMVIhll.  estimnble benelit throughout his   entire life.  Knglish swimmers aie very fund of  going long distances, and thoy have  placed on rcroiil some rcniiirkiilile re-  cortls. Tlio channel swim is always  a dangerous ami tempting lure to the  Biitishc-rs, und the recenl detenuiiii'd  btit unsuccessful iitlciii|it to cross the  strait by Cyclist llolbien again  brought prominently In-fore tho public eye Ihis daring till around athlete.  llolbien attempted the swim last  year and was unsuccessful: consequently his latest elloil wns pioeluc-  ed liy an eu'ii stronger nmhinnn to  ii-iii-h the rovctod goal. lie started  fium 1'upe llri/->iv, l-'riiiico, in swim  to Dover, England, lli-tween these  points tho tliiiiinel is thirty miles  \v;do. llolbien covered all imt six  miles 'of the distance, when, to save  him from being curried into the North  Kelt, he was picked up hy a lug"'  llolbien was in the water, which  was at a ti'ippcratiire nt t\'2 degrees,  more than siMct-u bonis, and yet he  had plenty oi" i*c>crve stiength when  taken on boaid tho tug. His preparation was hugely responsible for  his condition. Befoie entering thc  water be covered himself thoroughly  with a mixture of oil and iodine,  serving to nullify somewhat the effect of prolonged submersion.' lie  uses this preparation before all of  bis long swims. Other swimmers fre-  <|iiuiitly resort to the use of a liberal  coating of vaseline, which, tliey say,  is tt wonderful aid.  llolbien has thc following to say  about swimming:  "Foolhnrdiness is a prevailing fault  with those considering themselves  swimmers of more than the ordinary  ability, and it is a well known fact  that more so called 'good swimmeis'  are lost every year than performers  of mediocre power.  "And right here. I desire to give a  few words of advice, regardless of  age. sex or experience, ilon't go into deep water within tin hour after a  heavy meal, for cramps invariably  arc had when undigested food is in  the stomach. However, there is little use in staying out of the water  for two or three hours after eating,  as is frequently suggested. A single  hour will usually be found to answer the purpose. Ilon't go into the  water when the temperature is below  lioi.niKN- covnni.vn iiimski.k wnii on. ,vvi.  loniNi:.  Hii degrees. Excessive cold will give  cramps to the li.n-diest nf alhlclc*.  Don't try to swim across a body of  water unless you know the exact distance, for uppciii'iiui'i-s an* very deceptive. Don't lake long swims cui-  ly in the senson unless you have lnvif  practicing mi- a week or two. for  swimming muscles are seldom used in  other  exercises  "Ilon't venture  into unknown    tide  watets  without companions. Cur  rents arc very tieacherous and deceiving, especially in rivei.s, and  many a man has lost his life through  carelessness. Don't dive into unfamiliar waters. Hocks and slumps often lurk below the surface, and eveiy  year broken necks result because of  them "  RT   HCN   C^T. RITCHIE.

An elderly minister Is fond of telling  of a "break" he once made at u double  wedding of two sisters. It was arranged that the two couples should be  married vvith one ceremony, the two  brides responding ut the same time  and the two bridegrooms doing the  same. There had not been any previous rehearsal, as the minister had  come a long distance and had reached  the church but u few minutes before  the time for the ceremony.  All went well until it came timo for  the minister lo sny, "And uow 1 pronounce you man and wife."  lt siii'deiily became obvious lo the  minister that the usual formula would  not do In the caso of two men and two  wives, anel he could not think of any  way of making "man" and "wife"  plural In the sentence.'
