OUR' CANADIAN NEIGHBORS.
Dissolve Their Parliament to Get the
Sense of Their People.
Toronto OnW Feb. 3. The Empire,
chief organ of the Dominion government,
announces this morning that the gov
ernor-general has dissolved the house of
commons and issued writs for a new
parliament. The Empire says: "It is
understood that the Dominion govern'
ment has through her Majesty's govern
ment made certain proposals to the
United States government which looks
to the extension of our commerce with
that country. . This proposal has been
submitted to the president for his con
sideration and .the Canadian govern
ment's opinion of these negotiations are
to result in a treaty which must be rati
fied by the parliament. It is evident
the government should be able to deal
with a parliament fresh from the people
rather than with the house.

Execution of the Vile Murderer Ej rami
He Dies Game.
Paris, Feb. 3. Michael Eyraud,
murderer of Notary B. Gouffe was guillo
tined this morning. Eyraud meets his
fate with fortitude and resignation. There
were but few witnesses of the execution
owing to the fact that the time it was to
take place was not generally known.
The Trades' Unions Have a Say.
Boston, Feb. 3. The United Labor
Alliance, composed of leading members
of Trades unions,' Knights of Labor,
Nationalists and Socialists, last night
adopted a resolution setting forth that the
sentiment of the people of Boston on the
free silver coinage bill was misrepre
sented by the bankers and money lend
ers at the meeting recentlyheld in Fan
euil hall. " :
a The Free Silver Bill May Pass.
Washington, Feb. 3. Bland has ex
pressed as his belief that silver men in
the house are strong enough to pass the
free coinage bill, on a direct vote. It is
not expected that there will be . more
than fifteen negative votes on the demo
cratic side while thirty or thirty-five af
firmative votes are looked for on the re
publican side. Bland hopes to get the
bill out of the committee by Wednesday.

Steel Barges Being Built to Carry Coal
and lumber to Southern Ports.
San Francisco, Feb. 2. There is stay
ing in the city at present a party of
gentlemen, headed by Captain Mac
Dougal, of West Superior, Mich., who
represents some of the largest interests
in the United States. They are agents
of the American Steel Barge Company,
which carries on large enterprises on
the great lakes and Atlantic coast. At
West Superior they have completed the
finest ship-building plant in the coun
try, and are at present building steel
barges of about 3000 register tons each
for use on the Pacific coast between
Puget sound and San Francisco. How
many of these barges will be built for
this coast has not been definitely decided,
but they will be supplied by the plant
as fast as the needs of trade require.
Captain MacDougal stated yesterday
that operations would be commenced
here in August. He said :
A great detriment to shipping interests
here, we fihd, is the manner in which
ships are discharging in San Francisco.
We propose operating principally in
bringing coal from Nanaimo, Seattle and
Tacoma, and lumber from the Sound
mills, but the dispatch that vessels eot
in this bay in unloading is quite enough
to drive any new enterprise like ours a
way. On the lakes and in the East we
discharge at the rate of 2000 tons a dav.
We find that quick dispatch will be
given in loading at Puget sound, but the
trouble is in San Francisco. Whether
we will' run to San Francisco has not
been settled yet. The Mexican and Cen,
tral American trade is very alluring, and
we may eventually extend our line down
It is understood that a millionaire
king is behind the enterprise, and that
its capital is over $10,000,000.
Employes of the Southern Pacific Dis
satisfied, and About to Strike.
San Francisco, Feb. 2. The train
men of the Southern Pacific railroad are
far from being satisfied, and an import
ant conference will be held during the
comiug week, which will determine the
advisability of a general strike. When
a settlement of differences between the
Southern Pacific Company arid their
trainmen was effected last September it
was supposed there would be . no further
trouble. It seems, however, that there
are a number of grievances which have
been accumulating since then, and the
general grievance committee, represent
ing the Brotherhood of Trainmen of the
entire Pacific system, is now on the way
to this city to consult with General Man
ager Towne and Superintendent Fillmore,
From a member of this committee it is
learned that not only are the brakemen
dissatisfied, but the . engineer, firemen
and conductors also have some grievances
which they want adjusted. The men
object to sweeping cars and cleaning
lamps, and want seasons when they are
DR. KOCH'S LYMPH,
He Has Only Partially Told
Berlin, Feb. 1. Professor Koch, who
is about to start for Egypt, gave a fare
well reception to his labratory assistant
today. The professor says he will prob
ably- be absent from Berlin about three
months. He explains that he only par
tially disclosed the method of production
of his curative lymph, because he de
sired to stop the rush of dociors to Ber
lin. If he had described the method of
manufacture more fully, he says he
would have been more worried about
details. Great discontent prevails re
garding the published account of the
method of manufacturing the lymph.
Numberless attempts to produce the
lymph have been made, but they found
Professor Koch's description totallv
inadequate to enable them to make it.
Gladstone Will Not Retire.
London, Feb.2. Gladstone has on in
tention of retiring from public life for
the present. He has taken- a house for
the season on Park Lane, overlooking
Hyde Park. It is known that the re
cent rumors of his intended withdrawal
from public life have hurt Gladstone's
feelings so much that he refuses to reply
to any inquiry on the subject. Mr.
Morley is reported as stating that Mr.
Gladstone is in vigorous condition, both
of mind and body, and perservering in
his advocacy of the great reforms which
he is certain will eventually triumph,
and that the liberal party is as united as
ever in support of their leader.
Battle in a Pile of Snow.
St. Paul. Feb. 1. With the tempera
ture about zero, 100 twin city sports
went to North St. Paul and pitched a
ring in the snow for a fight for $200 be
tween Jack Henry, of Ellensburgh,
Wash., and Joe Searles, of Minneapolis.
For the first five rounds Searles had
everything his own way, but after that
the Pacific coast man knocked Searles
down three times and won the fight in
the eighth round. . j

Youth's Bright Lexicon.
"Remember, boys," said the new
teacher, who, being still new at the busi
ness, knew not what else to say to make
an impression, "that in the bright lexi
con of youth there's no such word at fail."
After a few moments a bov from Boston
raised his hand. "Well, what is it,
Socrates?" asked the teacher. "I was
merely going to suggest," replied the
youngster, as he cleansed his spectacles
with his handkerchief, "that if such is
the case, it would be advisable to write to
the publihers of that lexicon and call
their attention to the omission."
The question has been asked, "In
what respect are St. Patrick's PiLb bet
ter than any other?" Try them, You
will find that thev produce a pleasanter
