'   Victoria, , July  10.—The   following
appears in the Globe   this  afternoon :
"The Grlobe   is  in   position   to ,r.n-
nonncc   that  arrangements' have ' almost been   perfected   for ' a , coalition
between the Opposition and   the  Government, which arrangement will  obviate the necessity of  a general   election'.    Unless all present plans should
be   changed,' Mr.   Martin's   successor
will be H. D. Helmcken, Q. C,   senior
member for "Victoria City.    Two other
members of 'the   "Opposition    will   be
given  portfolios   also,   but   just  who
these gentlemen will   be   has   not yet
been  fully decided.   Messrs.    Semliri
and Cotton will,remain in the government.    One important  feature of   tiie
nesotiutiour.—which  have   reached   a'
stage warranting   this   announcement
—is the fact that Messrs.  Semlin   and
Cotton have agreed to tiie demands of
the Opposition—^that one of  the   conditions of   the   coalition   shall   be  a
cliange-of policy.    The eight-hour law
affecting miners,   and   the  anti-alien
legislation will be repealed, and  there
will also be a general   change • in   the
policy pursued by the Semlin   administration since it assumed ofiice."

Daily Mail 3errice Soon.
The Nelson Miner says that within
a very few days there will be a daily
mail .service over the Crow'e Nest
Pass railway. The Nelson board, of
trade took action in the matter on
Monday evening and the postonice
department lost no lime in granting
the request. It will be seen that the
message from the department says
there will be "increased" service, and,
as mails go out every second day now,
only a daily • service can be meant.
The following is the telegram received :
Ottawa, July 11*
F.'W.   Swannell,  Secretary   Board of
Trade, Nelson:
Necessary instructions have been
issued for increased mail service over
the Crow's Nest Pass railway.

The senile addressed the jury in a-  few well-chosen words, tsporinllv  <��� warning (hem to think veil o\er ih.eb  ���\onliot, and bidding them to lie ino.-l  fj'-ct'ul in charging tho commission of  f-o tool a deed' to 'anyone wiilnv.it  thoroughly -weighing all the eviu'n--���  that had bt-en b>-ousht befoiv tl em,  much of which, indeed, he declan-d,  was of a most conflicting naiur".

JOHN LE"\VIS SUPPLIES THE CT.r^j:  Although the veidid had been anticipated by the majority of Ihcs-i who  had been present throi'j'liout the examination, all were neverlhelc-V hoi -  rilled, even' though' they admitted its  justice in consideration of the ��� evidence. There were some, < f courrp.  who stoutly maintained that Vugin-a  was innocent, but they were ihic!;.  her most intimate friends. These proclaimed tbemsehes to be in a position  lo judge better than rhose who did not  know ' her so well. Unhesitatingly  ihey asserted that her whole life and  character made it utterly preposterous  lo harbour a suspicion of a crime of  so heinous a nature. Said one, "Does  an innocent girl become a hardentd  criminal in a moment'.'" But otheis  gravely shook their older heads, and  readily recalled instances where equally respectable individuals had been  ptoved guilty of murder. After all,  horrible as it is to take life, yet, view -  ed from a certain standpoint, murder  is less dishonourable than theft. One  who would scorn even to tell a lie  mig-ht yet in anger or under great provocation unhesitatingly send another  to his last account. So respectability  is scarcely a defence against a charge  of murder.  The town of Lee is in Stafford county, and the county seat is Dover. Here  the grand jury meets, and here the  trial would cake place if there should  be one. Squire Olney, at the termination cif the Inquest, therefore declared  that Virginia must be taken to Dover  on the following day. tog-ether with  the record of the evidence wbb h would,  of course, be presented to the grand  jury. It was decided that she should  pass the night at the residence ol th^  squire, who would peisonally drive o\--t  with her early in the morning. The  squire In all his lib-time had never  been placed in a position so paiuiul 'o  himself and so trying lo all his piide  In the morality of his town. It was  bad enough lo have a murder, but ihat  the .guilty parly should be a woniiai,  and she the most respected and admired female in the town, was simply  terrible.  As soon as Mr. Panics loomed of the  disposition to, be made of the prisoner,  for such she was to be considered now,  lie determined, to seek.rest at the -earliest possible moment'. Wishing to go  on to Riverside and share the rocnv  Which 'had. been provided for ..Burrows,  lie sought for that young man,1 but.  'cou 1 d   find   him   nowhere.        11 e    ' was  '. somewhat annoyed at this, as he'wished to talk with him on some of the  points brought out in the examination.  Finally, concluding that Burrows must  have g-one to the. farm, .as it' was already after dark, he decided to go there  also, and so started immediately. -He  had walked but a few rods -.when be  overtook John Lewis, and, ^recognizing  him, said :    ���  .

Lay the bottle en tho table upon ita  side and place the bit of cork about an  inch or less inside the open end. The  uninitiated will blow until they get red  in the face, and the cork will invariably  conio ont of the bottle instead of going  into it. There is a simple reason for it  too. The direction of the air forced by  the one blowing brings it against the  bottom of the bottle. The air compresses  within the bottle's walls and must find  an outlet; therefore it is turned and forced cut at the only vent the bottle has.  necessarily blowing the cprk with it  But take a common lemonade straw,  place the end of it near the cork1 in the  bottle neck, blow very gently���and the  cork'rolls iu.   .  iuaifs Liuiaient Cares Golds, etc.  The Enylo.nnd the Cocketl lint.

There is a dullness, drowsiness and  inaptitude for work on account of the  whole system being clogged up with impurities accumulated during- the winter  months.  The liver is sluggish, the bowels inclined to be constipated, the blood impure,  and the entire organism is in need of a  thorough cleansing.  Of all "Spring Medicines," Burdock  Blood Bitters is the best.  It stimulates the sluggish liver to activity, improves the appetite, acts on the  bowels and kidneys, purifies and enriches  the blood, removes all poisonous products, and imparts new life and vigor to  those who are weak and debilitated.  7 Big: Mr. Win. J.   Hepburn  writes  Boils, from Centralis, Ont.: "I can  sincerely say that Burdock Blood  Hitters is th.e best spring medicine on the  market. Last spring my blood got out  of order, and I had seven or eight good  ;,ized boils come out on my body, and the  one on my leg was much larger than an  ci;y;. I got a bottle of Burdock ,Blcod  Bitters, and inside of six days" when only  half the bottle was taken, there wasn't  a boil to be seen. I have recommended  B.B.

He Didn't ����-d It.  ' Could the funny sayings and incidents at the tenants' dinners in Scotland be collected they would'make an  unrivaled book of humor. Mistakes of  amusing and sometimes embarrassing  nature occur frequently at such ^functions. One story is told of a guest at a  Scottish tenants' dinner who tasted ice  cream for the first time on that occasion. He pushed a large spoonful of the  frozen" mixture into Iris mouth and  jumped from his chair with agony expressed'on his face. He let out a yell  and cried out, "Ow, off, ma rotten  tooth I" and could not be induced to eat  any more.  At another Scottish affair of the kind  a good old farmer was seated next to  the hostess. She served him a bit of  savory omelet, which seemed to cause  the old man deep disappointment. His  idea of an omelet had' always been a  dessert with sugar, or fruit or jams,  and after tasting the sample before him  he turned to the hostess and said,  ���'Weel. ma lady, I canna compliment  vou on your puddin's."  '. The1 "late Duke of Biiccleuch told a  story of a tenant at one of the'farmers'  dinners on his estates who was asked  by the duchess if he would take some  rhubarb, a dish she was fond of.

It was an August day, and the  (lay seemed to have been, vigilantly "'laying" for the general, for when he moved  majesticall}' forward under a black  chapcau with enormous plumes and  with his uniform tightly buttoned  around him the sun seemed to take another hitch in its running gear, and ii  went at hlnf as though it meant to  serve, up roast general well done for the  evening barbecue. -The perspiration  streamed down both sides of his face  and formed a sort of Allegheny-Monon-  gahela confluence at his collar button,  and there was a freshet and a flood-  tide quite in keeping with the Ohio  river's regular June rise. His beautiful  blue clothes with their hardware and  bullion on them seemed to melt and  coalesce, with his frame, but he valiantly talked on, and lold the soldier who  had not hit the cow how patriotic and  loyal of him it was, nnd the country  was proud of him and liis score, which  was  1-11-44, or something of that kind,  Several months afterward a friend of  the general  was  fishing with hint out  of his presence so as,to make Denverites   , . ,  '   ,.  proud.   Arrived at the hotel the terrible   " �� Ci]Try C0]npletC In,es 01  Dry Goods,  Groceries,  Hardware;  in the mo  information was made known ,to the.  hero of, the apple tree of Appomattox  that his trunks were lost, and, aside  from the linen duster and the cindery  shirt and trousers which he wore, there  was no garb belonging, to him on the  face of the kno0wn earth. ��.  It might not have been so serious a  proposition had the fact of that review  not been pressed upon the Galena, soldier. But it would never do for a maii  who had boon the commander in chief  of the United States army and who had  made a triumphal march around- the  world to get upon a reviewing stand  clad in a linen duster and a traveling,  cap. The general called upon Gen. Sherman for advice, and the man who had  marched to the pea'rearlilj-, offered, the  use of an extra uniform of his own. It  was tried, but where the ex-president  was broad it was narrow and where he  was short it was very long and ample.  Then Sheridan proffered a uniform,  but Gen. Grant looked gloomily upon the  ���Jtout form, of the Winchester rider and  said he was afraid the arrangement,  would hardly answer.  Scouts were sent out into trie town  to discover some relief for Gen. Grant  Such work of inquir:��- must, of course,  be performed with discretion, as .the  general, although called the plainest of  plain heroes, was alive to the dignities  of the occa-sion, and did not want the  secret of his predicament sown broad-  east. However, after sr-veral hours of  search the scouting party returned and  conveyed" into his presence an assortment of flaming brilliancy in masculine attire which caused his parlor  room to look liko a. sort of masquerade  costuming bazar. There were police-  men'o uniforms and mail carrier's clothing and militia garments and Knights  of Pythias atiire and campaign suits���  all gathered from clothing stores far  and w ide. At last the general Micceed-  (d in making up a fairl3'good suit out  of a combination of military officer's  garb and a uniformed rank sword and  belt. Tho other clothes were bundled  lvick to the second-hand clothing emporiums from whence they had Ik-cu j  brought, the proprietors of these stores  never knowing for whom or for what  purpose this collection of uniforms had  been ransacked.  One of the morning papers the next  day said that "Gen. Grant looked every  inch the patriotic soldier, liis. dignified  bearing v.as enhanced-by bis simple,  but glorious uniform of blue���glorious  because of its associations." It is said  that this is the uniform which the general wore in tho Wilderness, but when  he was asked alxnit it the hero smiled,  and uai silent. What magnificent,  \s hat patriolic memories must be connected with 1ha.t suit of blue! There  are men, patriots, ,who, if they had  it to give, -would gladlv yield a fortune  for it." ;  How grievous are ".circumstances!  How cruel it is that opportunity is.so  seldom recognized and that .men' crave  to-day ..what yesterday they might have  had for li'he 'asking..- Any of those persons who wovi'ld cheerfully have given  a fortune for that uniform, rich with its  associations,, might have had it the day  before by calling at a shop. in-'Wauzcc  street and turning over to the-proprietor ?t.r,r, lawful moiM>5-'.o�� the tlniied  Si-ales. -You wi-e, that; was one. fusci  where t-'-c m.'i.n made the clothe?;, in-  ��Vad o; the clothes'making the man.  ;���Cliieasj'o TJecon'J.
