WON IN THE GREEK ARENA.
ATHENS, April 15.-The Olympian games were
closed to-day with the distribution of prizes to the
victors in the various contests. The weather was
perfect and the Station was crowded with people.
When the King and the royal party arrived a
Pindaric ode on the games was delivered by Mr.
Robertson, an American, after which, according to
the ancient custom, the King personally handed to
each winner of a first prize a wreath fashioned of
wild olives plucked from the trees at Olympia,
and laurel wreaths were given to the winners of
second prizes. All of the prize winners then re-'
ceived diplomas and medals. The Stadion band
played the national air of each country represen-
ted in the games, to which music all of the prize
winners paraded. After the parade the games
were declared by the King to be ended.
The total number of athletes who received
crowns was forty-four, of whom eleven were Am.'
ericans, ten Greeks, seven Germans, five French,
three English, two Hungarians, two Aiiustrnlianis,
two Austrians, one Dane, and one Swiss.
SAfter the ceremonies attendant upon the prize
awards were completed the Internation Committee
having the arrangement of the games in. charge
met at the residence of the Crown Prince -ind ar-
ranged for the holding of tIhe next games in Ath.,
ens in 1898. Baniquets in honor of the victors are
still being given, and the city is en fete.

MESSAGES WITHOUT WIRES.
Even Rbntgen's rays will pale before the dis.
cover that M. Nicola Teszla, the famous electri-'
cian, e'lai,,i. to have made. After experimenting
for several years, says the New York correspon-
dent of the Daily Chronicle, M. Teszla has come
to the conclusion that it will soon be possible to
dispense wlth telegraph wires, and to transmit
messages to any place on earth or even the nearer
planets, by the scientific utilisation of electric,
waves. Tiheo-l)phists Mill doubtless claim that
the Mahatimas anticipated his supposed discovery,.
M. Teszla hopes ere long to demonstrate the praq*
ticability of his plan.

The death occurred lately of the widow of the
late Captain liervey Doane, in her 89th year.
Deaceased was the mother of HI. M. Doane, travel.
ler for Smith Broth 1rs, PLiIit.-r, Doane, Barrington,
Mrs. McMurray, Salhilury, Mass., and Mrs. Shaw,
wife of Captain Shaw, late of the steamer Beta.
Mrs. Doane was a most estimable woman and will
be much missed.-Halifax Paper.

CAPT. SLOCUM'S LONG VOYAGE.
Bo.Tros, April 4.-A letter received here from

1895, for a voyage around the world in the forty. i

Auxiliary Steam Schooner Afire.
The Schooner Benjamin C Cromwell, in yester.
day from Cienfuegos, passed on the night of April
11, about 200 miles north of Bermuda, a burning
derelict three-masted schooner, which had appar-
ently been abandoned only a short time. Her mis-
sen mast was carried away about twenty feet from
the deck. Capt McClearn of the Cromwell was
,unable to make out the derelict's name. He thinks
she had auxiliary steam power, as there was a boi-
ter aft. Her crew doubtless set her afire before
abandoningg her.-American paper.

3eath of Capt. F. J. Johnson, of the Danish
Schooner Ocean Traveller."
Capt F. J. Johnson of the Danish Schooner
Ocean Traveller, (which vessel arrived here on the
llth inst in distress) died on Sunday last of ex.
haustion occasioned by the exposure and hardships
that he had recently undergone while his vessel
was in the storm (lasting three days). During
that time he hardly left the deck, being constant-
ly at the wheel. After his arrival here he exper-
lenced a general collapse. He was removed on
shore and received every attention tha it was pos.
sible to give him and he was apparently getting
better, but on the 21st he took a bad tpi, and
passed quietly away.
Capt Johnson was 69 years of age and was a
native of Machias, Maine, U.S.A. His body was
entered with Masonic Honours, a large attendance
of the members of Lodge "St George," No. 200,
being present. '

Army and Navy Notes.
It is as open secret, says the Pioneer of Allaha.
bad, that Lieut. General Sir Henry Brackenbury
was offered some little time ago the post of Gov-
ernor and Commander-in-Chief of Bermuda, but
declined the appointment, though the salary is
3,000 per annum.

onions, quoted at $1 25 per box is improving.
The Directors of The Bermuda Produce Ex-
change have been regulating shipments to New
York to the best of their ability so as to give
that market an opportunity or improving. inad
shipments been forced, the mnirket would have
entirely lost all strength and tone, and the out-
look would have been much more discouraging
than it is. With judicious management it is
hoped to market the stock on hand awaiting
shipment to much better advantage than seem-
ed likely a few days ago. The advantage of
bur new wharves has only been too apparent
within the last few weeks in the easy delivery
and rapid shipment of onions ; and the need
of an additional Shed along lthe whole line of
the New York Steamers' Wharf is felt now to
be a pressing want, which, we hope, the Cor

RAIL AND WIRE IN THE SOUDAN.
WADY HALFA, Egypt, April 20 -Ihe course of
the expedition is prowrre-.ing quietly, but in a
perfectly satisfactory manner, Bimbashi Stevenson
has laid ix miles ot the railway from Sarras to
Akasbeh.
The Bimbashi who started on Wednesday to lay
the wire between the same two camps has got a
little to the south of Wady Atira. He will com-
plete the telegraph in about a week's time. The
telegraph practically follows the caravan route,
along the Nile, and is at present a ground line.
The lowet point of the Nile will probably be
reached about the middle of May. Under the
direction of the Intelligence Department, the
channels in the second cataract have been marked
by painting the starboard boulders blue and the
larboard boulders red. Stern wheel steamers of
shallow draught, and armed with machine guns
and rapid firing guns, are being constructed in
England, and will be placed on the reaches of the
Nile as soon as they can be got over the catar.

Church of England Sunday School Teachers'
Meeting.
On Tuesday last was inaugurated in connection
with the Church in these Islands a movement that
it is hoped may be of long continuance and of
much benefit. By special invitation the whole of
the Church Sunday School teachers throughout
the Islands were requested to assemble in Hamil-
ton for the purpose of uniting together in a spe-
cial service at the Cathedral and of afterwards
taking counsel with a view to promoting the unity
of the Church teachers and increasing the effici-
ency of their work. The invitation met with a
hearty response; from St. David's Island to the
Dockyard the parishes were well represented. At
the special service the sermon was preached by
the Lord Bishop, who, in the course of a stirring
and instructive address, laid before his audience
the requisites necessary in a teacher and for suc- -
cessful work, and urged his hearers to further and
more strenuous efforts in their work, pointing out
that the children of to-day are the Church mem-
bers of to-morrow ,and that their characters de-
pend much upon their present training.
A sumptuous tea was kindly provided by Mrs.
Jones and was partaken of in the Town Hall, the
use of which His Worship the Mayor, with his
usual courtesy, had granted for the occasion. At
the after meeting in the Cathedral School room,
which was packed to its utmost limit, the invited
speakers were:
CHARLES V. INGHAM, Esq., the Superintendent
of the Cathedral School, who explained and ad-
vocated the methods adopted in that School, now,
numerically, the largest Church School in the Is-
lands ;
THE HON. T. J. WADSON, who spoke from an
extended experience of Sunday School work, and
suggested many valuable ideas; and
REGINALD GRAY, Esq., who gave much interest-
ing and instructive information as to the success-
ful "running" of Bible Classes for men.
In addition the C ler'.y from the different par-
ishes gave short experiences and hints. A consid.
erable enthusiasm was generated and it was
unanimously agreed that a similar meeting should
be held annually, as well as an attempt to form,
at an early date, a federation of the Clergy and
Superintendents to keep up the interest and de-
vise further means of rendering the work suc-
cessful.
The Venerable Archdeacon of Bermuda pro-
posed a vote of thanks to His Lordship for the
able and instructive address which he had favored
them with that afternoon, and for instituting the
present gathering, he trusted it would always be
possible to arrange an annual one in future,-also
to Mrs Jones for so kindly providing the delicious
tea, which he felt sure all had enjoyed.
His Lordship in closing, stated that the thanks
of the meeting were due to the Rev. Canon David-
son, rather than to himself, who had not only sug-
gested to him the advisability of holding such a
meeting, but had practically carried out all the
details of arrangement himself.

Concert lately given by ladies and gentlemen at
the Hamilton Hotel, in aid of the Cottage Hospi-

line regiments in readiness for active service abroad

will land in July. By the end of August the
British reinforcements will number 6,500, and
probably an Indian contingent will raise the
number.

SUDDEN DEATH OF BARON DE HIRSCH.

VIENNA, April 21-Baron Maurice de Hirsch,
the great financier and philanthropist died last
night on his estate, near Presburg, Hungary,
from a stroke of appoplexy.
With Baron Hirsch disappears the greatest
philanthropist of the century. He had a vast
fortune, estimated at $800,000,000, which he
employed principally for the lifting up of the
downtrodden people of his own race. To his
people he was the later Sir Moses Montifiore,
endowed, however, with the wealth of a Monte
Cristo, that enabled him to lift misery and
poverty from thousands upon thousands. It
has been estimated th0t his income was from
$15,090,000 to $20 000.000 a year, and of this
sum he is credited with devoting to charity
and philanthropy from $12 000,000 to $15,000,-
000-some say the entire interest of his vast
wealth; for it is assested that at the time of
his marriage with the daughter of one of his
partners, Miss Bischoffsheim, who brought him
a dowry of $20.000,000. the income from his
own vast fortuue was devoted by him and the
Baroness Hirsch entirely to charitable and
philanthropic work. With him Baroness
Hirsch worked heart and soul in the splendid
work they took up.
His own gifts are said to aggregate $50,000,-
000, while the Baroness' were in Igood propor-
tion. The two together made frequent trips
all over Europe, and whenever an opportunity
presented itself 'for improving the condition of
the masses the Baron readily took advantage
of it and gave in proportion to the scope of the
work intended
No one knows of the thousands of small
things he and his wife were constantly doing
to lighten the misery and sorrows of the poor
The Baroness made personal tours of the slums
and poorest quarters of every large city in
Europe, and having a thorough knowledge of
English, French, II'lian, Spanish, Russian,
German and many of the provincial dialects,
was able to map out and carry into operation
the best and safest remedial measures. "We
devote our money," Baron Hirsch once said,
to these poor wretches, simply because all
the rest of the world is turning a cold shoulder
to them." The vast amount Baron Hirsch has
expended in his life in philanthrophy has yet
to be tabulated When it is the world will
doubtless won.mler, and all he has done he did
with superb system, so that his death leaves
the world no poorer.

ENORMOUS LOSS BY FLOOD.
THREE RIVERS, Quebec, April 21-The water in
the St Lawrence River has risen two feet since
yesterday and is now the highest on record here.
An immense loss has been sustained by farmers
near this city. Three hundred homeless families
are being lodged by the corporation in public
buildings. The waterworks and electric light sta-
tions are flooded, and the city is without either
water or light supply.
Lake St Peter ice passing down this afternoon
swept the wharves and river front clean of all
buildings, including the Richelieu and Ontario
Navigation Company's Pacific freight sheds. Per-
sons fled from their homes in terror.
Thirty-two buildings have been destroyed. Over
one thousand logs belonging to the St Maurice
Lumber Company broke their boom at Batiscan
to-day and were carried away, taking with them
Marsicotte's bridge, six hundred feet long.
News from Beauce county brings a pitiful story
of fearful damage there by floods. At St George
five men were drowned, and there has been heavy
loss of property and live stock. The loss of prop-
erty in the counties of Beauce, Megantic, Compton
and Dorchester will reach a million dollars. Maple
sugar crops, which yield $400,000 yearly, are
ruined.
The ice bridge in the St Lawrence at Quebec
remains solid.

WHY SO MANY ONIONS DO
NOT MATURE?
DURING my absence from Bermuda I re-
peatedly heard that onion seed seemed to
be deteriorating, a great deal did not come
up, and much that did. dil off, or produced
small or sickly onions. About a year ago I
commenced to thoroughly investigate and sift
this matter to the bottom ; I soon found out
that there are lots of people in Teneriffe who
grow onion seed, gather it and take it in town
to sell without any regardsto quality, whether
it is from good or poor :tock, ripe or unripe,
mixed or not.
I was assured by a large .,,,ier who is per-
sonally known to me, to be a man of honor,
that the whole trouble is caused by UNRIPE
SEED ; he has agreed to,pUt- up, on his own
place, what seed I require, every ounce of
which will be carefully selected.
Those who wish to embrace this opportunity
of securing
Seed that is sure to give Satisfaction
will please leave their orders personally at the
house of the undersigned, or send them by
mail, at an early date, as I shall only import
what is engaged, and it will be necessary to
send my order forward as soon as possible.

A BIBLICAL PARALLEL.
THE STRANDING OF THE ST. PAUL SUGGESTS A
CURIOUS ANALOGY.
The stranding of the great steamship St.
Paul, which stuck in the sands off the New
Jersey coast, cannot fail to suggest to biblical
students the analagous experiences of the dis-
tinguished apostle whose name the ship bears.
It is related in the Acts that St. Paul embarked
on a vessel which sailed many days without
mishap until it came nigh the city of Lasea,
and when in sight of land the famous preacher
addressed the seamen, saying: "Sirs, I per-
ceive this voyage will be of hurt and much
damage, not only of the lading and ship, but
also of our lives." But the captain and his
mates paid little heed to the prophet and fur-
ther on the text declares: '' Not long after
there arose against. it a tempestuous wind call-
ed Euroclydon." The sailors in those days
were not unlike their successors and Holy
Writ declares that When the ship was caught
and could not bear up into the wind we let her
drive." The account of the adventure proceeds
to say that fearing lest they should fall into
the quicksands they used helps undergirding
the ship and the next day they lightened the
vessel.
Then a'nin Paul asserted himself, and in the
presence of the passengers and crew, declared:
"And now I exhort you to be of good cheer,
for there will be no loss of any man's life
among you." It appears by the record that
the vessel made famous by Paul's voyage car-
ried in all 200, three score and sixteen souls.
The Scriptural narration is to the effect that
they ran the ship aground and the forepart
stuck fast and remained immovable There
being no life saving station near, and as it was
impossible to command a navy of tugs, there
was no way to pull Paul's ship off the sands,
and they were obliged to leave it there till the
waves demolished it. The superstitious, per-
haps, will think that the St. Paul is not a very
good name for a vessel, and will recall how
this particular ship bhas had more mishaps than
any other of the American line. The story
told in the 27th chapter of Acts, if due allow-
ance is made for the differences in the science
of navigation, then and now, is certainly sug-
gestive of the great ocean liner which bears
the name of the most famous passenger on the
vessel which sailed from. Alexandria and
stranded in the sands off the island which is
called Clauda.- Utica Herald.

DRUG STORE ON WEATHER BOW.
DENNIS'S INTERPRETATION OF THE LIGHTS HIE
SAW AT SEA.
"Speaking of Irishmen and drug stores re-
minds me of a tale I heard in New York the
other day," said C. D. Vest. An Irishman
shipped as a sailor on a large vessel which was
getting ready to go to sea. The son of Erin
knew no mor3 about the duties of a sailor than
he did about singing in grand opera, but he
said he could learn, and the captain decided to
give him a trial. The third day out at sea it
came Dennis's turn to go on watch parn of the
night. Now, Dennis,' said the captain, 'if
anm thing happens or if you catch sight of any.
thing be sure and let me know at once. I will
be asleep in my cabin at the foot of the stairs
and you must awaken me immediately."
"' 1 will, sor,' said Dennis, and he began his
first night watch. About midnight the captain
was startled from his slumbers by a terrible
racket. Dennis came falling down the stair-
way and landed with both feet against the
cabin door, shouting 'Cap'n, Cap'n, out with
yez or we're lost.'
"'What's the matter, Dennis?' asked the
captain.
"' Hurry upstairs, quick, sor; its coming'
this way and I am afraid we're goners. It's a
big wan, too.'
"' Well, what is it sailing our way ?'
"'Faith, Cap'n, I doan know, sure. There's
a red light on wan side of it and a green light
on the other. I guess it must be a drug
store.' "-Chicago Chronicle.

STRONGEST LIGHT IN THE WORLD.
THE 2,500,000 CANDLE-POWER ELECTRIC BEA-
CON THAT IS SOON TO BE TURNED ON AT
BARNEGAT.
The strongest light on any sea coast of the
world will soon be in working order on the
Jersey shore. It will have no rival for power
anywhere here or in Europe
This great electric light will have 2,500,090
candle-power, and its warning rays will be
sent forth from the top of Barnegat Light-
house. This huge light was exhibited at the
World's Fair at Chicago, and it was purchased
by the United States Government to be placed
on Fire Island.
This project was, however, abandoned, as a
lightship has been substituted for the Fire Is-
land lighthouse. The Government officials
then decided to place the new and powerful
light at the next most important point of the
coast, which is Barnegat.
The present light at Barnegat is 165 ,feet
above thne level of the sea, and it can be seen
under ordinary circumstances nineteen nauti


cal miles. The new light is so powerful that it
will not only be seen a great deal further than
the old one but it will penetrate haze and fogs,
which often make the present light invisible.
All old sea captains know the Barnegat light
as showing a white flash every ten seconds,
and the new one will have the same character-
istics. Many important additions hive been
made at the Barnegat lighthouse to prepare it
for the new light, and it is now one of the best-
equipped structures of the kind in the world.

DEATH OF EX-GOVERNOR SIR JOHN
SCHULTZ

OT'WA, April 13.-Word was received in
peh city. to-day of the death at Montercy, Mexi-
co, of Sir John Schultz, ex-governor of Mani-
toba. Sii- John had gone south for the benefit
of his health. Mr. Daly, on behalf of himself
and;ti Manitoba delegation, telegraphed con.
dolenoes to Lady Schultz.
,John Schultz was of Danish descent and
was born in Ontario 56 years ago. He gradu-
ated M.D. at Kingston in 1800 and the same
year went to Fort Garry, began to practice and
make money in the fur trade. At the time of
Riel's first rebellion in 1869-70 he was the lead
r of the Canadian party and was seized, im-
prisoned and sentenced to death by Riel Tom
Scott suffered the extreme penalty, but Schultz
escaped from jail. A year later he represented
Lisgar in the House of Commons and was also
a member of the executive of the newly organ-
ized province. lie sat in the House ten years,
and upon his defeat in 1882 was called to the
Senate. On Dominion Day, 1838, he was ap-
pointed governor of the province which he dlid
so much to create and develop, aa I served
with much acceptance to all parties. J st pre-
vious to his retirement from the gubernatorial
position last year, his distinguished services to
Canada and the Empire were rewarded with
knighthood. But he did not live long to enjoy


A MAMMOTH STRUCTURE.


BUILDING 200 STORIES HIGH TO BE BUILT IN
NEw YORK.
Harding & Gooch, the New York architects,
have drawn plans for the most tremendous
building on earth, a structure 200 stories high.
A capitalist of that city submitted the idea
of this building to Harding & Gooch. They
were the architects of the Postal Telegraph
Building and of other noble edifices in that
city. At first they regarded the idea as
visionary. Examine it carefully said their
client, and make a good report." The arch-
itects did so. They concluded that their part
of the work was practicable, and a 200 story
building could be erected, provided the vast
sum of money necessary to construct it was
forthcoming.
This huge pile will be called the King
Building. Its plan, as drawn by Harding &
Gooch, somewhat resembles the Effiel Tower,
that wonder of the last Paris Exposition. But
the King Building will be nearly three times
as high as the Effiel Tower, and its construc-
tion presents vastly greater difficulties.
The structure will occupy one large city
block; a block of the dimensions of that be-
tween Fifth and Sixth avenues, Twenty-Second
and Twenty-Third streets. It will of course
be built of steel, as are buildings that are now
considered tall. The framework is like that
of a bridge, placed on ei:d and surrounded by
an outer wall of stone or granite.
In the 200 story building the bridge will be
longer, that's all.
Compared to this building the twenty-three
story pile of the American Surety Company
will be as a mushroom sprouting at the base of
a tall flag pole. The King Building will have
120.000 square feet of space on each floor ;
24,000,000 square feet of space on the 200
floors. It will accommodate 400,000 people
under one roof.
Electric elevators will carry the people to
the upper stories, which can be done in 2-1
minutes. The projectors of the building intend
to have 200 district business men, on its com-
modious floors; on one floor jewellers, next
hardware dealers, etc. It is to be a city under
one roof, for retail clothiers are to be there,
haberdasher shops, barber shops, restaurants.
a physician's office, a drug store, etc. A vast
roof garden is to be constructed for summer,
inclosed in glass in the winter.
It will also prove a grand observatory for
the U. S. Signal Service in their observations
for meteorological knowledge.
The King Building will be the first of the
mighty fire-proof structures in New York and
the highest tpye of the present day develop-
ment in architecture. The thickhess of its
lower walls will be nearly sixteen feet, dimin.
fishing in width when the upper stories are
reached.-American Paper.

THE NEEDS OF CANADA.
TORONTO, April 14.-The Globe to-day prints
the following statement from Sir William C. Van
Horne, regarding the needs of Canada at the pre-
sent time: In my opinion, the most pressing
needs of the country are, first, a vigorous immi-
gration policy, to be carried out by a special com-
mission ; second, a first-class Atlantic mail and
passenger steamship service ; third, the protection
of the interests of the Dominion mining districts
in Southern British Columbia.

MAKING IODINE.

ONE OF THE MOST PECULIAR INDUSTRIES OF
IRELAND.
Along the northwest coast of Ireland, on the
borders of the Atlantic, dwells a hardy race of men
whose chief occupation, when not engaged in fish.
ing, consists of the manufacture of kelp-" This
kelp" is of great commercial importance, as from
it is obtained nearly all our iodine-a body of vast
use in medicine.
During the winter months the kelp burners set
out in their frail little curraghs (small canoe.
like boats, about 12 feet long, made of canvas) and,
proceeding along the coast, fill the boats with
seaweed, from which the kelp is made.
In this they are assisted by the women, who,
bareheaded and shoeless, take their turn regularly
at the oars, and are almost as expert at it as the
men. After a storm is the time selected for ob-
taining the seaweed, as by the force of the waves
it has been torn up from its bed, and is cast along
the shore in large quantities. Sometimes, in these
excursions the boatmen come across valuable
treasure trove, and, occasionally, also a mangled
corpse cast in from some ill-fated vessel.
When the boats are ladon the seaweed is brought
to a small creek and there placed in heaps out of
reach of the tide. From this it is carried in cicels
on the backs of men and women to a point further
inland, where it has to undergo a process of dry-
ing.
The drying consists in exposing it to the sun and
wind, and the better to do this they have rows of


loose stones laid, about 20 yards in length and a
few feet in height. Along the tops of these they
scatter the seaweed.
The drying takes months, so that spring is well
advanced ere it is ready for burning. This does
not matter, however, as owing to the fuel-the
peat or turf got from the bogs at hand-not being
yet cut and dried (or win as it is termed) it is
summer before the burning in the kilns can com-
mence.
The kiln is a deep trench dug in the ground.
Alternate layers of turf and seaweed are laid in
this till full, and the whole is kept burning for
about three weeks, until it cakes together in a
large black mass resembling coke, but much more
solid and heavier, This is the kelp."
It is then broken into blocks about 14 inches
square and brought by boat to the villages, where
it is shipped to more profitable markets.

iIUN FEt AND CROSSLEY AT CHARLES
STREET CHURCH.
Charles Street Church was crowded to its ut.
most capacity last night to hear the evangel-
ists, Hunter and Crossley. The meeting
opened with the dx )ology, after which the
congregation sang. Mr. Bell led in prayer,
especially for young men. Then his brother,
J. Ritchie Bell, sang a solo, "Christ is all in
all." Mr. Crossley sang "Calvary," Mr.
Hunter described tho work in Bermuda. It
was uphill work for tha first two or three
weeks, but after awhile God gave them the
city and hundreds were saved. After the
evangelists leave here they go to Yarmouth,
Woodstock, Marysville, Newcastle, then to the
camp meeting. and then to Dartmouth in Sep-
tember. Mr. Hunter took for his text John III.
It is no use for a sceptic going to the Bible. It
is to him a pack of riddles. It is like the hand-
writing on the wall; it is written by the finger
of God, which the wise men could not read
because their eyes were closed. But here is a
man whose eyes have been opened by Christ.
Like Daniel they can.read and understand. If
this world is to be won for Christ it must be
done, not so much by the pulpit, but by every
individual. We netd more plain preaching in
the pulpit. We want men like Spurgeon and
Whitfield. Merely iwinging to the church
:wont save. We mnu' be born again. Some
people are like a drunken man who was lean-
ing against a church and a wag coming along.
asked him if he belonged to that church. He
said he kind of leaned that way. Mr. Hunter
ended with an appeal to the young men to
take the Bible for their guide.
\Mr. Crossley followed with a practical talk
about the mistakes people make in the Christ-
ian life and the mi-take people are making in
not accepting Christ.
There was a short praise service after the
mneting when the invitation was given to
those who wished to do so to express their de.
sire to live for Christ, an offer which mimyy
accepted. -HIaltfax Hetall, April 14.


TAlE STORY OF CANNED SALMON


From Temple Bar.
The fish are .,vi;miini .g near the surface now,
and if they look up they will see upon every
pole which rises from the wall of mesh either
a hawk, an eagle, or a great gull ready to
pounce upon them They dive, and try-to swim
under the weed. They cannot. The water
is shallow, and the weed rises from the very
bottom. Meanwhile hawks and eagles are
busy, a panic ensues, a few fish dart through
the narrow way. It is more open beyond,
ai..l, after all, it lead in the right direction.
f'he general impulse is to go forward; no one
wants to turn back, and, like sheep, they fol
low their leaders through the gates of death.
For after this it is all over with the salmon.
Before long the wide pool narrows again.
Again a straight way lays beyond them, and
bih-oe long they are crowding and jostling
each other in a pound fifty feet by thirty feet,
where they stay, hopelessly confused, and
'dashing wildly from side to side, until a
:steamrr comes along with a scow in tow. Ont

the scow is a crane Chains from the crane are
hitched on to the net, which is below the
pound, and some thousands of strong, free fish,
who had an hour ago the whole sea to swim
in, are drawn up to the surface and ladled out
in scoop nets, knocked on the head, thrown on
the scow, and c.i redl off to the American cani-
neries at Point ,Uhlerls, where they go through
a -.i us i.e machine an i become "canned sal-
mon.'"
These canneries are t ing (July, 1895) 30,000
sock-eyes per diem. But some escape. Either
they swim wide of the bay, or by lack ecc.qi,.
the leads" which guide them to the poundnd"
and find themselves at last near their goal.
All around them i.s blue water, clear and cold.
In front of them is a well-marked band of yel-
low water, thick, stale, and warm, through
,which they blunder like Londoners through a
fog.
Above them are two or three thousand
vhite-sailed fishing boats; in the dim water
fti ):.t 400 miles or more of gill-nets; on the
river's banks are thirty-two great canneries,
with machinery in each for turning from 1,000
to 2,000 fish per dien into canned goods."

FOR A NEW HOTEL.
A SUGGESTION THAT THE CITY OFFER A FREE
SITE TO THE C. P. R.
From the Echo.
For some time there have been rumors,
floating about to the effect that the Canadian
Pacific Railway company contemplated build-
ing a large hotel in Halifax, and that some-
body located here was inquiring into the cost
of sites.
The Echo mentioned some days ago that a
Granville street business man had hinted dur-
ing the Ba'nstead & Sutherland fire that the
block in which the burned building was situat-
ed might, under certain conditions, become the
site of an immense hotel; and another party
connected the C. P. R. with the proposed site.
Within the past day or two the hotel rumor
has been revived, and it was said Mr. Van
Borne, when interviewed by the Halifax win-
ter port delegates, had spoken of the necessity
for increased hotel accommodation in Halifax,
and pointed out some of the benefits that
would result therefrom.
It seems to be a f,,reg,,e conclusion that if
the C. P. R. ever comes into Halifax over a
line controlled by that company, a new and
big hotel will be a certainty, for the magnates
of the road contend that it would be of materi-
al assistance to their own business as well as
of great advantage to the city.
In this connection the first question that sug-
gests itself is, what are the prospects of the
C. P R. coming into Halifax? Some of the
Halifax delegates to Ottawa seem to be satisfied
with the result of their mission, but they are
careful to keep to themselves the tips they got
during their visit to the capital, until their re
port is made to the City Council and Board of
Trade. It is expected a special meeting of
both bodies will be held next week to receive
this report.
An Echo reporter called on Ald. Stewart and
asked him if in the conference with Mr. Van
Horne the matter of a new hotel for Halifax
had been mentioned. The alderman said it
had not. He understood, however, that when
the 0. P. R. was trying to get the Inter-coloni-
al road from St. John to Halifax the directors
looked forward to building a big hotel here.
Mr. Van Horne says, "We are in St. John,"
but Aid. Stewart believed they would like to
get into Halifax too, and he does not believe
the road will be a success at this end until it
does enter Halifax over its own line.
Ald. Geldert, who is acting as secretary of
the delegation, was questioned, but, like Ald.
Stewart, he would say very little about winter
port matters until the report has been present-
ed. He thought the C. P. R. would like to get
into Halifax in connection with the fast steam-
ship line, and that this would be the best thing
that could happen for Halifax. If the C. P. R.
comes here a big hotel would be sure to follow.
The alderman had heard no suggestion that a
free site should be given by the city, but spoke
of the inducements given by other cities for
such enterprises.
H. L. Chipman, of the Plant Line, was asked
if he had heard anything while in Ottawa and
Montreal of a new hotel for Halifax, or the
suggestion that a free site be *offered. He said
he had not, but gently suggested that perhaps,
after the report had been presented, the dele-
gates might feel more at liberty to talk regard-
ing the C. P. R matter.
Aid. Redden generally knows all that is go.
ing on in civic and business circles, but he said
he had not heard of the suggestion that a free
site should be given by the city for a hotel.
A business man, who was not a delegate,
speaking of the C P. I.. and fast line, thought
Halifax now stood a good chance of gaining
,4iedtlhi..g in this connection. lie understood
the delegation had assurances which were
most satisfactory. He also thought the labour
troubles at St. John, and the grounding of a
steamer in the harbour there, would injure
that port's chances. Even if the C. P. R
would not give rates to and from Halifax as
favorable as those given to St. John, Halifax
would get most of the business.
CAPT. KIR WAN'S EXPLOITS.

A FENIAN WELL KNOWN IN NEW YORK IS
ONCE MORE IN ENGLAND.
From the London Globe.
There has recently arrived in England from
New York Mr. John Kirwan. Of course, be
bears the title of "Captain," but the only real
military experience he ever had was in the
Papal Army, as a private, in the year 1860.
This man Kirwan has had a curious and
somewhat eventful career, He is a native of
Dublin, and is about sixty years of age. After
his return to Ireland from Italy, he joined the
Fenian organization, under James Stephens,
and became an active and daring propagandist
of that organization. When Stephens was ar-
rested, it was mainly through Kirwan that his
memorable escape from prison was effected,
Shortly afterward Kirwan fled to England,
and at once put himself in communication with
Capt. O'Rourke, one of the many Irish Ameri-
can officers who had been sent over by the


Fenian organization in America to drill and
command the Irish revolutionists in Ireland,
Following the suspension of the Habeas
Corpus act in Ireland, and the consequent
arrest and imprisonment of most of the lead-
ers and many of their followers, several who
had fled to England d &termined, in 1867, upon
a daring exploit. This was no less than the
capture of Chester Castle, where, it was un-
derstood, were stored vast amouris of
guns and ammunition. Capt. O'Rourke

that enterprise, and Kirwan was detailed
with fifty men at Runcorn Gap. At
this place was the only bridge within miles
crossing the River Dee. Kirwan was to hold
the bridge within miles crossing the River Dee.
Kirwan was to hold the bridge until reinforced
in the event of Chester Castle falling into the
hands of the Fenians, who numbered some
4,000. They accounted for their presence in
Chester on the pretense of a proposed prize
fight. But the authorities got the tip "
from Corydon, the informer, and the Irish
army disbanded helter-skelter.
After the attempt on Chester Castle, Kirwan
determined upon having a "rising" somie-
where, and so with a few comrades and a fow
revolvers, he took ship at Garston, a few miles
above Liverpool. It is said the Captain of
the ship was a Fenian also. The invaders
landed safely on Killiney strand, some few
miles south of Dublin, and the whole party
succeed in reaching the Irish metropolis with-
oLt detection.
At this time, March, 1867, the Fenians were
thoroughly disorganized, through the vigor-
ous action of the Government, but a determin-
ed few, mainly at the instance of Kirwan,
resolved upon one more effort, and ordered
their followers to rendezvous at Tallaght, a
wood some miles distant from Dublin.
Near this place was the residence of Lord
Gough. On the lawn in front of Lord Gough's
mansion were six 24 pound field guns, eaptur-
ed from the Sikhs, and these Kirwan was
determined to capture. But Kirwan seems to
have reckoned without his host. The Irish
constabulary of Tallaght were fully prej-are0l
for the invaders, and one of them, Stephen
O'Donoghue, fell dead as a result of the first
volley.
On his way to Tallaght, Kirwan succeeded
in capturing a police barrack and made pris-
oners of war to the extent of four policemen
and their arms. Another similar citadel of
the enemy likewise fell into the hands of the
Fenians, and, with the capture of the police
barracks at the village of Golden Ball, the
Fenians were in possession of some thirty-nine
prisoners, who were almost iini, diat ly re-
leased, as the Fenians had no food even for
themselves.
Kirwan and his little band also attacked
another police barrack near Dundrum, but a
bullets from one of the defenders' rifles put
him hors de combat. This was practically the
end of the rising at Tallaght, and, though
severely wounded in the shoulder, Kirwan
managed to reach Dublin.
A reward of 200 was now offered for the
capture of Kirwan, which was consequently
soon effected. As Kirwan's wound was con-
sidered serious by the surgeon, he was sent to
a hospital, where a police constable was placed
to gaurd him. A few days after his arrival at
the hospital Kirwan's wife was permitted to
visit him, and, while she held the policeman
in conversation and diverted him, her husband
got through a window and made good his
escape. Of course, the whole thing had been
admirably planned by Kirwan's compatriots
outside. He succeeded in smuggling himself
to Liverpool, and thence he sailed for New
York, where he has resided ever since.
Kiawan is now pit,iIng an extended visit to
various centres in EInglani and Ireland. His
object may be merely one of health-seeking or
pleasure, but if it is anything else, he may
rest assured that it is known not only to hinm-
self and certain leaders of the Clan-na-Gael in
New York, but also to the proper authorities
in this country.
