 $0  ^  Op  ASSOCIATED   PRESS  'REPORTS  THAT   CONTAIN   MORE  Or  Less  Information   About  the   Filipinos  and   Other  People   Unknown  to   Canadians.  WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON,  MARCH  29,.  I SIM).  Maniln, March 2i).���Information reaches  here that the insurgent* capital has been  moved from   Malolos   f.o San Fernando.  The army has not; advanced today, as tho  mon are building bridges and waiting for  supplies to   come up.   The   country  between Marilo anil Manila  piesouts a  picture   of  desolation.     Smoke-    is   curling  from hundreds of ash heaps and remain-;  of Lives and fences torn   bv shrapnel are  to be soon everywhere.   Tho general tip  pearance of the counLry  is as  if ifc had  been swept by a cyclone.    The roads are  strewn with furniture and clothing chopped in flight, by Filipinos.   The only people remaining behind are a few aged persons     to     infirm      Lo      escape.       They  camp beside   the ruins  of their former  homes and beg passers-by for any kind of  assistance.   A majority of them are living on tlie generosity of our soldier.*, who  give them portions of their rations.   The  bodies of dead   Filipinos are stranded in  the shallows of the rivers or are  resting  in the jungles where they crawled  to die  or were left in the wake of the hurriedly-  retreating army.   These bodies give forth  a horrible odor,  but  there is no one to  bury them.  Tlie inhabitants who (led from the  towns left in such a panic that on the  tables our soldiers found spread money  and valuables and in the rooms were  trunks containing other property of value.  This was the case in most of the houses  deserted. They were not molested by the  American soldiers, but the Chinese, who  slip in between the armies, are looting  when they can. They have taken possession of several houses and raised over  them Chinese flags, some of which were  torn down.  FKO.M   WASHINGTON.  The following cablegram from general  Otis has been received by adjutant-general Corbin : Manilla, March 2'.).���McAr-  thur's advance yesterday was only to tbe  outskirts of Marilao. It took until late in  tbe afternoon to repair the road aud railway bridges and send cars through with  supplies. He commenced his advance at  six o'clock this morning, and marched  rapidly on Bocave. He will continue to  Bigja, feveu miles from Malolos. The  enemy have destroyed the railway aud  telegraph lines, ancl a construction train  is following our foices. The enemy's resistance was not so vigorous today. Our  loss thus far is slight. The towns in front  of our advance are being destroyed by  fire.   The troops are in excellent spirits.  Looking After Canadian Interests.  Montreal, Alarch 29.���A Star cable from  London says : Lord Stratheonaand Mount  Royal is in daily attendance -at the high  commissioner's office, though his cold has  '.not, quite gone. He has made representations ou behalf of the Canadian  govern-  ,. ment to the colonial office, expressing the  - hope that-the imperial government will  support the private bill, now before the  .house of commons, for the admission of  . solicitors tp the superior courts in British  possessions to the supreme courts of the  \ United Kiugdom. Another private bill,  now before the house of commons, compels holders of degrees from universities  outside of the United Kingdom to indicate  the source of their degrees wheu using the  same in the United Kiugdom. Lord  Strathcona lias-represented to the colonial  ofiice that his measure would impose au  invidious distinction upon universities of  such a high position as Toronto and Mc-  Gill. The bill was brought in by the high  university authorities, including sir John  Lubbock and Sir. Carson, Q. C, who feel  strongly that some step is necessary to  prevent the parade here of British degrees  inferior to those of the colonial universities.  PUBLISHED AT NELSON, BRITISH  COLUMBIA.

The  time of the departure is dependent upon  the word from senator Perkins of California, who will be a member of the party.  Tbe plan is to go to the head of the Lynn  canal, which is fifteen or twenty miles  from the scene of tbe reported recent rioting over tbe boundary line, for the purpose of making an investigation of the  boundary question.

London, March 2!).���The annual meeting  of the shareholders ofthe Grand Trunk  .Railway Company of Canada was held  here today, when they unanimously  adopted tbe report of the directors.  There was no incident of note.  Whenever the postollice department is  asked to better the postal facilities in  Kootenay, the invariable reply is thatthe  revenue is so much less than the expenditure that increased expenditure cannot  be thought of. The report of the postmaster-general for the year" ending June  30th, 1S98, shows clearly that any such  contention is not based on facts. The revenue from the accounting postoftices in  East and West Kootenay exceeds- the  total expenditures for salaries, rent of offices and transportation of mails by several thousand dollars. The total revenue  was $49,880.03 and the total expenditure  $40,442.42.

He said  the Shamrock would probably be launched  during the first week of June. Slje was  not as adviineed as lie hoped,howeveiyaud  he was unable to fix the date for her  launching, which would be an entirely  private function.

Satf Francisco, March-20.���A letter from  Gautemala says: Mr. Casin, a friend of  Ezetta, Once president of Salvador;  walked over a cliff a few days* since near  Port-a-J'utla and was dashed to death on  the rocks below. Nobody believed the  act suicidal, though he declined to take  food for a couple of days prior to the occurrence. It will be remembered Casin  made a fortune in Salvador, variously estimated at from $500,000 to $1,000,000. He  shared Ezetta's exile, and participated in  the expense of the sloop on which Ezetta  aud he sailed for California a couple of  years ago. Ezetta died in Panama in  poverty, and the same fate has overtaken  Casin.  _______  Wanted to Sell Out.the Philippines.

On Saturday last an  Italian named Guiseppe Colosimo lost $18  in what is called a game of aces, and to  get even with the house a complaint was  lodged against Mrs. Malette for keeping a  gambling house. There were just twenty-  five Italians present* and they with a  couple of lawyers kept the case going all  day. R. M. Macdonald appeared for the  prosecution and S. S. Taylor for the defence, and although the case was commenced this morning it was still in progress at halt-past three this afternoon.  The permitting of gambling in one's  premises constitutes an indictable offence,  for which offenders are liable to one year's  imprisonment, and while this case was  progressing the police magistrate said  that it looked to him as if the criminal  code was being invoked through spite.  Pleasure Boats.  W. Cbok, electrician of New Denver,  will build a steam pinnace for the use of  excursionists this summer. The machinery has been ordered. It will be thirty-  si-- feet long and will have good speed.  There is a feeling of uneasiness among  the mining operators of Southern Kootenay. The new legislation constituting  eight hours a day's work in the underground workings of the mines is responsible for this. The mine-owners have  reason to believe that the miners will insist upou the eight hour day and the same  rate of wages as was formerly paid for  ten hours, and this they say means a general shut down of the mines until cheaper  men can be secured.  S.  S. Fowler of the London & British  Columbia Gold Fields brought the matter  up at last evening's session ofthe South  Kootenay Board of Trade.   He said that  the present situation was worthy of the  most careful consideration of the board in  view of the effect which any attempt at  enforcing the eight hour day would have  upon the whole community.   He said that  several of the mining operators in Nelson  and in the Slocan had gone into the question  from the  mining operator's   standpoint, but sweeping all such considerations aside, and taking up the question in  a broad  sense, he was sure that; the new  legislation would work out to the disadvantage of everyone concerned.   It would  mean that the miners would receive less  money for tbe day's work or the mines-  would close down,   or it' might possibly  have the^effect of increasing the cost of  labor.   To increase the cost of labor would  manifestly be detrimental to the interests  of capital, and to decrease the wages of  the miners would be to drive them out of  the country.   Should it result in closing  down the mines it would drive everyone  else out of the country.     None of such  changes were desirable but any one of  them might happen as the result of any  attempt at enforcing the eight hour legislation,   lie thought the board of trade  should memorialize the provincial administration  to   allow matters   to stand as  they are.     The miue operators at present'  ,had ca good/class* of miners,  who  were  high-minded',* sensible and satisfied with  their condition.   In the state of Utah-the  .eight hour law had been enforced and had  been declared constitutional in the courts,  hut.it could hardly be regarded as satisfactory." The practical working out of the  system in Utah has been that whether the  costof labor per unit  was increas*ed or  decreased,   the- best   miners  have been  driven out of Utah.   "The men who took  tlieir places were an inferior class'of meu  and not a desirable element for any community.    In .Utah as" the result of the  eight hour legislation the  mining in  tbe-  state is largely done by Mormon ranchers*.  What happened iu Utah would happen in  British Columbia.   If the present desirable class ot miners was displaced as the  result of the new legislation  the mining  operators would require to put up with  inferior meu.   In view of the fact, however, that the mining sections of the community had  beeu taken at a disadvantage,  in that they had no intimation of  any    such   a   change,   iu    the    mining  law, and it was manifest that the operation of the amendment would operate to  the   permanent detriment of the whole  community, he thought that the board of  trade might very properly exercise such  influence as it had with  the  members of  the provincial cabinet to suspend the operation of the amendment until thejegis-  laturerea6sembiesr"IIe accordingly moved  that the chairman of the meeting appoint  a committee of fiye to formulate a memorial to the minister of mines witha view  to securing his, intercession for the purpose Of effecting the sus'peii-iion and  ulti-  uiate repeal of the amendment nmde to  the Metalliferous Mine*? Inspection Act.  Captain   Duncan   seconded    the  resolution.  G- &��� Bueh-inan explained that tlie matter had already received the attention of  fche Kaslo Board of Trade and the board  had been informed that the government J/'The  had already proceeded to etll'oree the provisions pi the act, the minister of mines  having given permission for the launching  of a prosecution jn reply*' to a request  froin ltossland. Mi'. Buchanan furthe.*  said that Kir. Wood Of the (Last Chance  mine, had heeaiji Victoria aiid hitd seen  nearly all the members of thegovernmetit^  upon the matter and had received an assurance frotii the minister of mines that  the administration would not give permission for any prosecutions under the  amendment, nor for its enforcement unless there was received a demand from  the miners, and that in such  an event the amendment would  be enforced. Everything therefore  depended upon the miners themselves. If  they refrained from asking for the enforcement of the act nothing would be  done but if they demanded its enforcement it would be enforced. In view of  this condition of affairs the reports from  the Slocan were alarming as it was reported that on April 1st the miners had  decided to demand an eight hour day and  to strike if the request was refused. In  such an event the mines would probably  be shut down for a time and the whole  country would suffer.  Mr. Buchanan considered it the most  serious situation which those interested  in the development of the country had  ever had to face. Everything rested entirely with the men. In view of the circumstance that all persons had been taken  advantage of in the passage of such legislation, and that the legislature had taken  a snap judgment against the district, the  miners might in deference to a strong ex  pression of public opinion allow the  matter to rest in abeyance until the next  session of the legislature. A great deal  might be accomplished in this direction by  the local press. The dangerous element,  in*' the matter would probably be the  leaders in the miners' organizations who  might call upon the men to stand up for  their right1:. Jt is generally understood  thatthe miners in the Slocan were content with the way things were going, but  that they were practically being coerced  by tho-*cat the head of their organization.  W. A. Macdonald���What did Mr. Green  say about the amendment ?  Mr. Buchanan��� He said that the matter  had bpeii brought up before the mining  .committee by the representatives of the  miners from Kossland and Nanaimo, but  that the mining committee refused to incorporate it in its report. When the  members of the house were considering in  committee of the whole the bill to amend  the Metalliferous Mines Inspection Act,  the house sat very late and the amendment was inserted. Premier Semlin said  he was not present, and the minister of  mines was not present. The amendment  was moved by some private member, and  whoever was representing the government in the house allowed it to pass. The  only minister who professed to knowcany-  thing about the amendment was Mr.'Cotton, who said that he knew about it, was  in favor of it, and allowed it to go  through. Mr. Green of Kaslo undoubted- I  ly voted for the amendment and Mr.  Hume was in Nelson running his campaign.  The resolution moved by Mr. Fowler  was then put and carried, and the chairman appointed as the committee: S. S.  Fowler, captain Duncan, S. S. Taylor, Q.  C, II. B. Thomson aud James Bannerman.  Whatever may be the individifal views  ofthe members of tho South Kootenay  Board'of Trade upon the question of the  Conservative party's policy of protection,  they are of one mind with respect to the  advisability of securing as much protection as they can for the lead industry of  Kootenay.  It was an adjourned meeting of the  board which was held for the purpose of  taking some action upon the question of  lead duties with a view to securing some  betterment of the conditions for the local  smelting of lead ores which was' introduced by J. J. Campbell of the Hall Mines  by<the admission into Canada free of duty  _-�� t- I    "������_   V^ n ��"J ink-* Inn J anL��>._lA t.       ��� _T  ���-   THE   CRANBEOOK   MURDER.  Latest Particulars.  W. II. Bullock-Webster,  chief of provincial police, left this morning for Cranbrook to investigate the circumstances in  connection with tho murder of Terrence  Ryan ou Monday night.   Additional particulars   in   regard   to   the  crime   were  learned last night from passengers  who  arrived in Nelson over the Crow's Nest  Pass railway.   P.   ifoung   of Winnipeg,  who is en route to the Boundary Creek  country, states that he arrived at Cranbrook on the train from the" east at 10:30  o'clock on Monday night.   He went to a  restaurant for supper, and on returning  to the,car, which was standing a short  distance west_.of the depot, he heard a.  shot fired.   Two engines, Nos. 127 and 304,  were standing on side-tracks. ' Hyan got  on engine No.' 127, on which  the turner  and,wiper we're working, and said: "Boys,  J have been having some fun  with  the  Italians."   After further conversation he  said:   ''1 guess I'll go to bed;  good, bye;  God    bless    you."    He   walked   a- short  distance aud was in the shadow of a car  -when the fatal shot was fired.

He looked upr and saw a man  throw up his hands aud fall to the ground,  lie jumped dowtf and ran and caught hold  of the murdered man, and in attempting  to raise him found that he was dead.   Dr.  King of Cranbrook and Dr.  Brumell of  Coal Creek were hastily biimmoued,  and  on examination found that the bullet bad  entered the back just below the shoulder-  blade on the left side, and had piercedthe  heart, coming out through the breast.  The murdered man was well connected  in Montreal, but for some time had been  working an a "cookee" at Smith's boarding-house in Cranbrook. He ia described  as a young .nj��.,j^oj!t^u;^n_ty_rfour_years-  "of oge7inoffensive, but full of life and fun.  The tragedy caused great excitement iu  Cranbrook, and steps were at once taken  by the police and citizens to apprehend  the murderer. Patrbls were sent out along  the different roads leading to the town,  but the geuei'&l impression is that lie is  hiding among hi_t cOuntryqien, who have  a ij.iYiuber bf shacks by themselves ajtiiig  the main line, a Short distance from the  depot. -r  KASLO   LOCAL   NEWS.

The boys are being  drilled in the Unocctipied *_to.-e on A  avenue hear Green ftrotbers' establishment,  ^ Kaslo is so orderly that the police commissioners, at a (fleeting op Monday afternoon, decided to cut tlie police jt'orcje in  twain. Chief Adams will have the peace  of the city under his sole charge, at least  for the present. A janitor for the new  city building will be appointed.  The court room is being fitted up. The  floor of the barristers'portion is receiving  a covering of neat patterned oilcloth, and  the judge's room and registrar's platform  are being carpeted. Ic will present a  very attractive appearance when completed. A. T. Garland's establishment  supplies the floor covering and blinds,  and Robert Elliott the furniture. County  court will be held in the new room oh the  fourth of May. County court registrar  Keen has issued his first summons, and  the work of this branch of his ofiice is  now fairly under way.  President Buchanan of the Kaslo Board  of Trade was named as delegate to represent its views at tlie meeting of the South  Kooteniy Board of Trade.     The Kaslo  board bad already on Saturday evening  recorded its approval of the suggestion  that  the  Dominion   government  secure  bonding privileges for lead, so that the  product of lead ore sent into the United  States for smelting might be returned to  Canada without paying duty.  of Canadian lead, which having been  mined and smelted in Canada was refined  in the United States.  G. O. Buchanan of Kaslo was present  and delivered a "good address upon the  question of lead duties and the manner in  which they operated with respect to the  mining and smelting industry of Kootenay. As a member of the Kaslo Board  of'Trade the speaker had given the lead  question considerable thought and his remarks upon it were full of interest. The  finding of the Kaslo Board of Trade upon  the matter was - that the conditions of  mining aud smelting would be improved  (1) By the substitution of a bonus to be  paid upon lead of Canadian origin,  smelted and refined in Canada,  in lieu of the bonus provided for  in the act for the encouragement of lead  smelting; (2) By au increase of the duty*  upon lead and its products coming into  Canada: first to the same rates as now  imposed by the tariff of the United States,  and secondly to the general average of  the duties now levied upon manfactured  goods coming into Canada; (3) By an  arrangement by which lead mined and  smelted in Canada can be refined in the  United States and reentered into Canada  free of duty. _  Mr. Buchanan theu'read a letter which  he had been empowered to forward to the  minister of customs, in which the Kootenay view of the lead question was stated  very forcibly, and the necessity for the  rearrangement of duties upon lead imports of all kinds was pointed out. The.  speaker said that when he was last in Ottawa he had been assured by Hon. Mr.  Fielding that in the event of the'failure  of negotiations of the Quebec commission,  and of representations being made to him  by the lead interests, that he would do all  in his power to place the same duties upon  lead manufactures or upon manufactures  of any other kind..  W. A. Macdonald then moved his resolution declaring* in-favor of the imposition of increased duties upon lead and'  lead products into Canada as< the best  meansVof encouraging the r mining -and  smelting industries, and of fostering a refining industry. , lie made a good speech  in favor of protection, as applied to the  mining industry of Kootenay, and cited  the Globe, Mail,and Empire aud Thb Tri-  runk as authorities for the statement  that the present condition of affairs was a  drain upon the district of Kootenay. This  resolution was seconded by H. B. Thom-'  son and* carried without .a dissenting  voice. f ' ���, '    L  A resolution endorsing the views of J.  J.   Campbell,   and  asking the Dominion,  authorities to admit into Canada free of  "duty, lead wiiich having been mined and  smelted   in. Camida  was   refined in   the *  United States, was then moved by James .  Bannerman; seconded by Dr. E. C. Arthur.  When  this resolution came up .for discussion Mr. Buchanan informed the members of the board that he had understood  from   the minister of-customs that there. *  would be no difficulty whatever in securing such an arrangement, should it be de-_  cidcd-by-those-directlyconcernedthat" it-"  would  be in  their interests.   The resolution was then carried unanimously.

When the delegates irom Nelsoft were  in Ottawa a year ago attempting to secure"  an appropriation for a public-��'bnJi'ldi_bgv  both postmaster-general iVliiipj_h and min *���  ; .iisjte.r.-pt'-fhe-interior Sifton used, thji iol-  jq-vving argumfetifc iti reply ifco the demands  .Jdf^thia -delegates:   "Tlie govern merit-has  ,", " expended large  sums in building  the  " (prow's Nest Pass railway, in order to  "Sefp'the people pf Kootenay get cheap  "coal and i'arhi produce, and they should  " npt expedt anything im.dre."   Lsist year  the ppdple df the town of Nelson alone  paid directly into the Dominion treasury, j  dve'r and above all expenses of collection,  rijpre than sufficient to meet all the inter-  e-it  charges on   the money advanced by  the government as a subsidy to build the  Crow's Nest Pass railway,   The Dominion government spent less than $12^000 in  Nelson last year for salaries, rent of buildings,   etc., and -collected $200,000 in cus-.  tphis, inland  revenue, postoffice revenue,  etc.   The  total  advances to  the Crow's^  Nest Pass railway were $2,770,190.   The  interest and sinking fund charges on this  amount for the year would be $194,338,  reckoning interest at 3 per cent and sinking fund at 4 per cent.   These facts should  be beaten into the heads of the postmaster-general and the minister of the interior with a club, if necessary.  Por the same year the receipts at the  Rossland postoffice amounted: to $14,588.-  ol, and the postmaster was paid a salary  of $3000. The postmaster at Nelson was  allowed $433.92 for rent, fuel, light and  commissions, while the postmaster at  Rossland was paid $S71.13 on the same  account. The cost to the department for  carrying the mails between the postoffice  at Nelson and the railway depots and  steamboat wharves was $1001.50. At  Rossland the cost for carrying the mails  between the postoffice and railway depots  was $1234. These, figures show that the-  Nelson office netted the department", over  and above all disbursements, $10,195.12  for the year, while the Rossland - office  netted the department but $9183.38. ,.  : In .this connection, it is only fair, to  state that Rossiand is also discriminated  against when' compared*-with eastern  Canadian towns whose receipts.average  about-the same as those of. Rossland.  Gait, Ontario, rhas a public building, and  hasr a population" of 8000. The postoffice  receipts' for, the year, ending June 30bh,  1898, amounted'to $14,220.97, and; its-postmaster received .for salary and, commissions $3202.37. Owen Sound, Ontario,,  like Rossland, is without a public building. The receipts of-���-the postoffice were  $12,041.74, but the postmaster was paid  $4053.30- _____.-  These figures go to show that Nelson  lias been very, unfairly treated, and that  Rossland, even, has not received as good  treatment as towns of the same size back  in*Onta_*io. .

"Seetiis that after the deacons an' me  went over tp the Sunday schpol Billy  vyeut^and paid the board bill aii' settled  at: the bar, ati'i-qilai'ed off the" electric  light people and did the gentleman by  Everybody, an' wheti he was through  there ���jti-it $125 left. Then he went out to  wat<sh -Some boys fishi).' on tlie stolie  bridge. Seems that Billy* was sittin' on  the parapet with a boy each side qf him,  when bh_jir lines got tangled and one of  the hooks stuck in a crack about two feet  below, an' the boys couldn't reach it. Now  Billy was always a good natured guy, so  he huiig himself clown over the parapet  tin' got the hook out. He'd "just straigh't-  .ened ijp agaiu when he saw a roll of greenbacks a lioatiu' in the riv6r.  "'Hello,'says Billy, 'look at the .greenbacks   Somebody's lost his wad.'  '���He grabbed a rod artd began angling  for them, but he didn't do a thing but  drag the roll out of the slack water by  the pier and in half a second the current  caught 'em and they went dancing down  the river and out of sight. Billy ran for a  boat and chased out into the stream,;but  he never even got a sight of them afterward. In half an hour he came back ana  a man met him as he landed.  "'Thao'll cost you half a dollar,'says  the man.  " 'What for ?' shouts Billy,  g" 'Didn't you swipe my boat,' says the  man.  "And of course Billy couldn't deny it.  But he went through pocket after pocket  and couldn't raise a cent.  "'Say, what d'ye think of that,' he  says,'a minute ago I had a hundred and  a quarter, an' iiow b'gee I can't find a cent.  Where's it gone?'  "'Down the river, I reckon,' says the  man.  "'What d'ye mean by that break?'  asks Billy.  "'Well,'says the man. 'I beam ye was  out in the river chasm' bills. I s'pose they  was yourn. Ye don't think people around  these parts goes thrown.' greenbacks into  the river, do ye? Well, I guess not. That's  a Noo York trick.'  "Then Billy tumbled thatthebillswashis  an' began to look like the king o' France  after the battle of Batavia. He'd been  lookin' like that half an hour when I came  in. Say, what, d'ye think of that? Wasn't  it a frost? and we couldn't raise the price  of a chew of tobacco between us !"  "It eertain'y was dead tough," said the  advance agent.  "Well," continued the stereopticon  man, "we told the landlord how the assets  of the firm had gone iloatin' down the  creek, and say, he was a peach. 'Never  mind, boys,' he says, 'you.go out and see  if you can dig up some kind of a job an'  meanwhile you can stay right on asiuy  guests.' Now, say, what d'ye think of  that ?"  "He certainly was good to you," said  the advance agent.  "Just then in comes a man named  Jenkins that ran a stationery store," the  stereopticon man continued, "and the  landlord stops him, aud tells him how  Billy got separated from the bills and  then he said:  " 'Say, Jenkins, can't you think of something for these chaps to do?'  "'Well,'says Jenkins, 'there's old man  Gaylord. Since Charley skinned out his  books have been all mixed up, and I guess  the old man doesn't know where he's at.  I heard him say he'd have to get an ex-  ���7pert;?  " 'Is he well fixed ?' says I.  " "Bout $150,000," says Jenkins.  " 'Liberal?',says I.  " 'He's nature's noblemau,' says Jenkins.  ". 'Will you put me next him ?' says I.  "'Sure,' says Jenkins. 'Come to my  place at 9 tomorrow, and I'll do it.' ;;  "Then the landlord set 'em up, and me  and Billy went to our room.  " 'Say,' says Billy, when the door was  shut, 'what kind of a song and dance is  this.   You ain't no expert.'  " 'Why  ain't  I?' says  I.   'Didn't I go  through Commercial college at Syracuse;?

"So next day I mounted the landlord's  high dice and called at the Commercial!  College, and say, I looked just as muchi  like a banker as when I landed the wagon  man. I sunk all the slang and watcbed  sharp after my grammar. Say, if you'd  heard me talk you'd thought it was Dr.  Parkhurst. The old guy tipped me a chair  and I introduced myself and said I'd just  dropped in, thinking that the cares of  business would probably make it difficult;  for him to call upon me. Then I mentioned;  Billy's name.  "'Well,'he says,'I'm extremely sorry,;  biit I fear Mr. Mason will not suit.'  "For half a minute I never said a word.  Then I said, very slowly: 'Professor, if  yoii knew that young man's capability as,  well as I know it, and as well as many  others know it, I don't believe that you  would say that;'  " 'Well, well,' says the old man, "well,  well, Imay have been mistaken, but he  did not strike me as a likely teacher!'

" 'He's so small,' says the old man. ���<*  " 'Ah,' says I, 'small, yes���but undignified ? Why, my dear sir, you don't know  Mr. Mason. Possibly alone, in the presence  of his employer, he might unbend, but in  the public���before his pupils���why, sir,  his dignity is unimpeachable.'  " 'But his experience ?' says the old man.  kind of plaintively.  " 'A graduate of one of the first commercial colleges in America, my dear sir���  a graduate of the New York State.normal  school���where could he have better experience?'  "The old guy hemmed and hawed, and  blew his gay old nose, and I saw I had  him going, so I threw in.one on his solar  plexus.  " 'My dear sir,'I said, getting iip and  putting a hand on his shoulder, 'I recommend Mr. Mason to you. I am satisfied  that when you get him you get a young  man in 10,000. Put him to work ! If he  does hot show his worth within two  weeks discharge him. He asks no consid-;  eration at your hands. Let him go, if you  wish,, but I know that. you will not let  him go. He is too valuable a- man, arid  you will make a mistake if yon do not  secure his services.'

"Well, sir, I worked on that sum until  two o'clock in the morningaud Billy came  down before breakfast to learn how to do  it.   1-howed  him, and when school was  opened he was all loaded and ready.

'Well,'  says he,   'it's strange that not one of you  got it; but I suppose, after all, I'll have to  show you myself.'  "So.he did,  and, say,  his stock  went  'way up out of sight, and that was the  last bad trouble he had.   A week or two  later I left tor New York with $100 velvet  and I've never seen Billy since,  but.last  month on the way from Chicago I dropped  off at Detroit and the first man I ran into  was old McLaughlin.

" 'That young man,' said  the old guy,  'is one of the most admirable I have ever  known.   He's the best teacher I ever had,  and the staff and pupils alike respect him.  Did he tell you he was married ?"  "Well, sir, I-like to have dropped dead  when I heard that, and I guess I forgot  my grammar and my manners too.  " 'The devil you say,' says'I.   'Who to?'  and the old man looked like he had been  shot.    ......  " 'Mr. Stearns,' says he, 'I'm sorry to  hear you use that word. Mr. Mason never  swears.

Some of the wash houses are  complained against as nuisances, aud it is  likely that steps will be taken to regulate  the same.  The city engineer has a gang of men at  work on Mill street, between Ilendryx  and Cedar streets, fixing.up a number of  swampy places. When they complete  their work Mill street will be passable  from Stanley street to the eastern limits  of the city.  Mr. Barry will open a restaurant on  Monday in the premises formerly occupied  by the Model restaurant on Baker street.  BUSINESS   MENTION.
