HUMBUG TRIED BY FIRE.
Everybody has not heard of the
Cardiff giant, but few newspaper
readers have not come across borne
mention of it. The figure .so-called
has been shown all over the United
States as a. petrified human body up
on a gigantic model. Some believed
it was a petrifaction, and some were
certain it was not. And. according
to popular doctrine, it matters not
what people believe, so long as they
arc sincere. Yet a controversy some
what akin to that mentioned in the
annals of the Pickwick Club, as rag
ing around the question of the anti
quity of the tablet engraved, Bill
StumpsIIis Mark," was provnknd ly
this Cardiff giant. Lntolj the won
derful fignro wna mi exhibition ill the
opera bouse at Huron. Dakota Ter
ritory. That at such a late day it was
a sufficient attraction to pay for
trucking it round, shows the magnetic
power of humbug. It was a cold day,
metaphorically, for petrified giants,
however, when the prehistoric (?)
member of the fraternity from Car
diff was exalted to the public gaze
at Huron. It proved to lie a hot day,
too, independently of Fahrenheit
in the shade, for the same honorable
member. What the strife of scien
tific tongues could not prove to a
credulous public, a trial by lire de
monstrated to .1 dot. The opera
house was burned down, and the gi
ant woe the day! perished in the
flames. When the corpse was dug
out of tho ruins its bones wore found
to have been human-wrought and
made of iron. Tho " iron frame"
was 110 figure of speech in his case,
and conveyed a different idea than
the same term applied to strong men
of common mould. And tho iron
was too much of a solidarity to be
accounted for by "iron in the blood"
absorbed by oven gigantic gu.zling3
of patent tonics of crowbars dis
solved in whiskey. This giant's
alleged petrified muscles, sinews and
reins crumbled away in the fervent
heat of blazing opera house, showing
that they were only the gypsum that
scientific opinion had long pronounc
ed them to be. The prose record of
thedepnitod impostor will read, with
the addition of dates; Cardiff Gi
ant, made of plaster of Paris on an
iron frame, by a smart believer in
humbug, at Fort Dodge, Indiana.
Buried nt Cardiff, New York, and
resurrected as a great discovery.
After a long career of humbugging
tho ' free and enlightened,' burned
and ' busted' at Huron, Dakota, and
revealed as a fraud of the first wator.
Go thou and do likewise: Immhooilo
and make money out of 'a credulous
public. .Hut remember tho trial by
fire will reveal ovcry man's work, and
not even tho hand grenade of most
approved trade mark can save the
humbug in that Hour,"
Another engagement only one
moic, where there used to be two or
three at a time has been arranged
by Albany gossip for President
Cleveland. This one is to Miss
Folsoui, a bright gill of twenty bum
mers, daughter of Oscar Folsom, of
Buffalo, who was a partner of Cleve
land and was killed in an accident in
187.1. Mr. Cleveland is said to have
had intentions lcgarding the Widow
Folsom, but that lady had an unre
movable picjudicc against a second
nianiage. In the case of the
daughter, the Albany special cor
respondent rather naively remarks,
"There is no question about Cleve
land's intention to marry this gill,
but some doubt is expressed as to
licr readiness to become his wife."
Surely, when "Barkis" is Presi
dent of the United Stales, the young
lady will be ' willin' " as he. Yet
a lefusal of the hand that holds the
sceptre would distinguish her not
much less than its acceptance.

The French envoy, who was about

contraband of war, and Admiral
Courbet has orders to treat it as
such. This is directed against Bri
tish and American shipping, and in

The British Government lias noti
fied France that England could not
asicnt to rice being made contra
band. The English people arc
aroused over France's action. It is
believed Germany will take a stand
against the declaration of France.
Lord Granville, the British For
eign Minister, in a communication
to the Powers, declares that the ac
tion of Fiance in making this deciee
is in direct violation of the resolu
tions adopted by tho Congress of
18.rtG. It is argued in England thot
the pretension of France, if admit
ted now, will certainly be extended
to cereals generally. There is n
widespread feeling that at the bot
tom of the French declaration lies 11
subtle trick played for future pre
cedent. This belief rests on the
suspicion that i' ranee, wlicu sue
made tho declaration against rioc,
seriously calculated upon Being em
bioiled with Gicat Britain. Calcu
lating on this emergency, it is sup
posed that rice was declared contra
band .so that if the declaration was
admitted by the Powers it could be
extended in the event of war between
France and England so as to pre

Judge Gray nlid Mr. Cluiplcau,
Secretary of Slate, the Commis
sioners appointed by Hie Dominion
Parliament at last session to inquire
into Chinese immigration, have pre
sented separate reports to Parlia
ment. Judge Gray deals with the
evidence taken in British Columbia,
and Mr. Chaplcau with the Chinese
question f 10111 the United Stales
standpoint, the result of a visit to
San Francistto and other American
cities. The two Commissioners,
however, concur in their general con
clusions. It is pointed out that I he
development both of British Colum
bia and California, as shown by the
evidence taken, has been mainly due
to Chinese labor ; that it is essential
to the continued prosperity of Bri
tish Columbia that the Chinese
should be allowed to settle in what
ever numbers they dcs'uo, and llioj
recommend that tho only lcstrictive
legislation should be in the direction
of providing gi cater police and sani
tary protection, to prevent crime
and disease among them. The Com
missioners endeavor to show that
every industry of British Columbia
has been developed by Chinese la
bor ; that lo check it, or to pass any
restrictive measure by .which the
Chinese would be driven out of the
country, would be a death-blow to
all such industries. They recom
mend that moderate restrictive meas
ures, based on police and sanitary
principles, be enforced by rigid regu
lations and that the Dominion Gov
ernment shall enact legislation im
posing a tax of S10 upon every
Chinese man, woman, or child, com
ing into the province, the revenue
thus raised to lie devoted to the pay
ment of inspectors, whose duty it
shall be to report the number, sex
and condition of all Chinese immi
grants and report upon all matters
pertaining lo the Chinese in that
province, llic report also recom
mends that the piovincial Legisla
ture pass the Act and regulate the
domestic aff.iiis of the Chinese.
It was expected that there would
be a bitter fight in tho House over
the reports, for, although the Gov
ernment last year disallowed the Act
of the Britisli Columbia Legislature
restricting Chinese immigration, they
had hoped the Commissioners would
have reported favorably, and this
session of the Dominion Parliament
would have allowed the provincial
A Victoria, B. C, despatch of
February 28th says: The House
yesterday, by a vote of 23 to 1 , re
enacted the Anti-CIiincsc Immigra
tion hill, passed at the last session
and disallowed at Ottawa. The bill
imposes stringent penalties on any
person bringing a Chinaman into the
province, and provides for the fine
and imprisonment of all Chinamen
who may enter the country upon any
pretext whatever. The Act, which
is to go into force immediately upon
the rising of the House, is British
Columbia's answer to the Chinese
Commissioners' report. The mover
of the bill stated that lie had no
doubts of its constitutionality.
Masters of vessels contravening the
law arc made liable to S200 fine for
every Chinaman they bring, with
six months' imprisonment' added.
The House will rise in about ten
days, and the Act will be enforced
on the mail steamers that will leave
San Francisco about March 1st.
Ileal estate continues to advance and
improvements are everywhere visible.
MOKK AllOUT Till: SOUDAN.
In a letter to a friend at Caiio,
dated December Mth, General Gor
don wrote: " It is all up with us. I
expect a catastrophe within ten days
from the present time. Jt would
not have been so if our people had
kept mo better informed of their in
tentions, My adieux to all."
Tho hitherto published account of I
the battle of Alton Klen say it has
been mcei tallied beyond a doubt ,
lhat Colonel Burnaby, who held no
official position in the regiment, gave
tho order to tho heavy cavalry force
lo advance. This resulted in the
bj caking of the square and tho heavy
inoitality. His counter-order to
retire came too late. The column
suffered the agonies of thirst during
the advance and consequent engage
ments. A Turkish statesman said to the
New York Hcrald'.i cot respondent
in Constantinople: " Why should
England have applied to Italy, rather
limn to us, when the aid of foreign
soldiers was required? No, it is
evident that Gladstone will have
nothing lo do with us, and yet he is
very wrong, for the Caliph's spirit
ual influence on the side of England
in Egypt would immediately increase
her strength. Turkey has done no
harm to England's interests, wliile
Fiance and Gcunany have done
much, and Russia is only watching
to do more injury than either. Had
tho Britisli Government but sought
our aid in the beginning, all this
bloodshed and expense might have
been spared. He who rules in I ppcr
Egypt must exercise authority over
the Soudan, as in that country lies
the source of the life-giving clement,
without which Lower Egypt would
be a desert."
A despatch from Korti, Feb. 25th,
says the dreaded kamsfii winds,
which do not generally begin befoic
Mnich, have already begun to blow
over the Soudan and assumed almost
the intensity of sirocco".. The wind
is hot. and accompanied by blinding
clouds of sand, which cut like
needle-points. The troops can only
find shelter by lying down, with
their faces to the earth, until the
storm has passed, when they strug
gle out, almost choked and blinded
with sand. The cavalry horses have
suffcredvterribly from the effects of
hot blasts, and many of them have
been so injured that they had lo be
shot. It is suppose that the kamsin
will prevail about a month.
A despatch from Albany to the
New York World gives the follow
ing as Cleveland's Cabinet for al
most a certainty: Baj'ard, Secretary
of Statu ; Manning, Secretary of tho
Treasury ; Lamar, Secictary of the
Interior; Garland, Attorney-General;
Vilas, Postmaster-General. This
leaves the war and navy portfolios
to be filled. Whitney is mentioned
by the same despatch as likely to
get the Navy, and either Judge
Endicott or Patrick A. Collins, of
Massachusetts, the War Depart
