THE COLONELCY OF THE FORGES.
( oi Asuruitn iKTiiuviuwnn.
Tho above subject has attracted
an utiii&ual shaie ol public attention
in the community for 1 lie past week.
Tbo Military Act passed over the
King's veto, will become law in the
usual course, ami within thirty days
of that time, the Colonel command
ing the volunteer iorecs foi the suc
ceeding two years will bo elected by
the commissioned olllcers ot the two
battalions ol volunteers a provided
by the .Act. The discussion attend
ing this matter lia, ior obvious
reasons, excited the most lively in
terest on the pail of almost every
citizen: so much so that the But.u.
tin yesterday detailed a special re
porter to call on Col. Ashford,
whose name has been prominently
before the public in that connection.
On entering the Colonel's law olllce
the reporter found the occupant en
grossed with a whole platoon of Chi
nese clients ; but he at once gavo
liis attention to the subject in hand,
and the following is the result of the
Reporter : I hear you are a candi
date for the Colonelcy 1
A. Yes, 1 am.
11. The question has been asked
why you resigned from the llillcs?
A. Well, I fully explained the
causes to the oiliccrs of the llillcs,
also to the Minister of AVar and
Navy, and the' approved uiy course
at the time, although they wished
rnc to remain. To mako a long
story short, the matter had become
very expensive, both in time and
money. I had devoted every min
ute of my spare time for a year and
a half, and seriously interfered with
my business, in many cases, to the
advancement of the corps. There
was always the best of feeling be
tween myself and every olllccr and
man in the corps. But it got to a
point where the corps was in full
strength, completely quipped, well
drilled and armed, and in splendid
condition generally. And as there
were no "rocks" ahead, 1 chose to
E. But they say the Government
reimbursed you for your expendi
tures. A. That is only partially true.
The Government repaid me some
$470 in all, if 1 remember the
figures rightly, which I had paid out
for armory rent, care-taking, fix
tures, etc., etc. This was all they
could be expected or asked to do.
But crcry one who knows anything
of military (voluntccer) matters,
knows that the commanding oflicor
who keeps up the esprit lc corps
must be subfect to a continual pecu-
niary drain. I never complained
about this. 1 had "been there" be
fore and knew what .it meant. But
as soon as the Rides had been used
for the purposes of the Revolution
and for preventing the coup delat
threatened last December and Janu
ary, leading men of the place who I
thought and still think should have
been my friends for what I have
done, immediately turned their
backs upon mc and sought to
"butcher" me. The details arc too
well-known to require an elucida
tion. I didn't go into the
fight those people. There
thing "in sight" worth
fighting for, anyhow, (I mean, after
elections). So my interest in
cause gradually flagged, by reason,
perhaps,of the style of men who put
themselves forward as its represent
atives. R. Do you refer to the Cabinet
A. No, but to the "back stairs"
party those who bat still while the
work was being done, and, like
jackalls, crawled in and stole the
carcase after the lion had killed it.
R. Then you are on friendly terms
with the Ministry?
A. Personally, yes. Politically, I
always make it a rule to keep poli
tics and military matters entirely
distinct. All I have to say in this
connection is that, if elected to this
position, I will do my duty, under
the law as I read it: and no matter
what my private political opinions
may be, it will be a sorry day for
any country when its Government
make it a test to military prefer
ment that the candidate should be
a political lick-spittle to the party
for the time being in power.
R. Is this your view of the pre
sent Government I mean on this
A. No: but this represents the
position the "back stairs" faction
arc striving to force the Cabinot to
assume: I hope, however, without
success. This contest represents a
principle in this respect. To-day it
happens to be myself who is inter
ested. To-morrow it may be you or
some other citizen. But there's an
end of all patriotism where it is
tolerated that executive appointments
shall bo coupled with political paity
servility. I don't believe it will
work here. The Cabinet will not
submit to it, whatever their personal
preferences may be.
R. But it is reported on the
street that Ministers have said your
'appointment would not be confirmed
even if elected ?
A. I have the authority of Col.
Austin and Mr, Thurston for the
statement that whoever started that
report manufactured it out of whole
cloth. Why, the thing would bo
absurd 1 It would be in direct op
position to the professed principles
of the Cabinet, recorded on the
subjdet of vi:ro. The Cabinet
couldn't afford to absumo such a po
sition, even if personally inclined to
It. Is it true tbey tiro so person
A. J know of no reason why they
should be. Hut J bolievc pai tie's
have mndo efforts in that direction.
lror instance, ccilain paitics have
Iricd to impress the Cabinet that I
endeavored to break up the Rifles
by inducing other oiliccrs to resign
when I resigned.
11. Then this is not true?
A. No, and thr man or men who
originated the report knew at the
time that nothing could be more
false. I used every elfort, while in
the Rifles, to promote their of II
ciency. When 1 left, I left, and
that was the end of it. t have un
derstood one or two of the olllcers
have since circulated unsoldierlike
reports of me. I guess the "boys"
don t think mc at fault, lion ever.
I'm willing to take my chances on
them, anyway. 1 always had the
fullest confidence in them, and they
in me, I believe.
R. What about the story that
the olllcers of the native Battalion
are supporting you, although your
A. Well, some ol those gentle
men were opposed to me in politics
last September. Some may now be.
When I go into a military fight, 1
don't ask a man what his politics
are. As 1 have said, the two sub
jects should be kept entirely apart.
Those who are trying to push this
view of the question, know this as
well as myself. But they arc dis
honest, as well as illogical. I un
derstand they attribute ulterior ob
jebls to the olllcers of the Second
Battalion. Probably it is because,
being themselves incabable of an
act of fairness to a political oppo
nent, they think no one else can be
free from sinister motives. My own
honest belief is that those olllcers of
the Second Battalion who vote for
mc (if any do) will do so, from a
desire for what they consider the
good of the service. Of course
such a motive is above the under
standing of some of our would-be
politicians of this town. But it exists
just the same.
11. What do you think of the
disturbing "rumors" set forth in to
A. You mean the "coup d'etat"
business? Why its absurd. I've
been in the country nearly four
years, and think myself pretty
fairly posted on such matters. The
truth is, that within the four years
named, political matters have never
been so quiet as at present, nor the
likelihood of domestic political com
plications so very remote as when
that sensational article was written.
It. How do you account for it?
A. The article? Well it's clear
enough. It's a thin "job" to try
and influence the votes of the re
maining three companies of the
Rifles at their next meetings:
Co. D having already declared un
animously in 1113-' favor.
R. How do you make that out?
A. AVhy, they've tried every
thing else. They first tried the wu
hinc racket; but were told that
I wasn'tru lining for a church deacon,
and that they had more dirty linen
of their own to wasli than they
could afford to expose. Then they
tried the "race" cry, but it acted
like a boomerang ; the native olllcers
saw through it, alid wouldn't have
it. Now they're trying the periodi
cal "dictator" bugaboo. It's hard
to tell whether the parties inspiring
this are more to be pitied as fools,
contemned as cowards, or despised
11. You speak rather plainly?
A. Yes, that's my virtue, or my
fault which you like. I try to tell
the truth, however. The troublo is
that wo have a number of people in
this town whom truth the offends.
These people eay I talk too much.
If I do, so much the worse for the
11. Is there airy truth in the re
poit that you're about to leave the
A. That's another thing urged
against me in the contest for the
Colonelcy. I'm here to stay, how
ever. I did intend to go East for a
short time this season to close up
some outstanding private business
affairs, and "draw out" from the
East entirely. But I sent forward
powers of attorney by last mail, with
instructions to settle everything.
R. What is your opinion of the
II. I don't care to criticise it.
It's tiip law, and we must do the
best we can tinder it.
11. What about the talk of its un
constitutionality? A. I'm not In the confidence of
the Supreme Court, in matters of
constitutional construction of stat
utes, in advance If you wish to test
it, you can sue out a Writ of Man
damus against the payment by the
Minister of Finance, of the Colonel's
salary, when lie is elected. Costs?
Oh, I should say 8C00 ought to test
it. Money is nothing, you know,
when principle is involved.
As the Colonel uttered this last
sentence is a seemingly sarcastic
tone, the Reporter thought it best to
exciibc himself from further trespass
on his tune, and after some formal

a committee on credentials. During
the absence of the committee in
performance of their duties, the
Chairman delivered a brief and ap
propriate address. The committee
returned, reporting tho credentials
all in order, excepting a little irre
gularity in two or three cases, and
recommending the over-looking of
these. The report was adopted.
The roll was called, showing 70
delegates, and the temporary Chair

Committees were appointed on
Rules and Resolutions. The first of
these reported a few short rules for
the guidance of tho Convention,
which were adopted. The other
committee recommended the adop

the Convention this committee, with
an increase of numbers, retired and
in a few minutes again returned with
the following clause added :
Resolved, That there should be
definite, strict and comprehensive
legislation restricting Chinese immi
gration, and regulating the Chinese

A committee was appointed to
draft resolutions of condolence to
the family of the late S. G. Wilder.
Nominations were then proceeded

W. Schmidt were the nominees. The
ballot resulted in 38 for Mr. Wilder,
and 3 J for Mr. Schmidt.
Great enthusiasm was shown from
beginning to end, particularly by
the crowd of spectators in the hall.
Both candidates were loudly ap

mentioned, and at the close the com

HOW PILLS ARE MADE.
THE custom of taking medicine
in tho form of pills dates fat
back in history. The object is to
unable us to swallow easily in u con
densed form disagreeable' and nau
seous, but very useful, drugs. To
what, vast dimensions pill-taklng
has grown may b0 imagined when
we say that in England alonu about
2,000,000,000 (l,vo thousand mil
lion) pills aro consumed every year.
In early days pills were made siowly
by hand, as tho demand was com
paratively small. To-day they arc
produced with Infinitely greater
rapidity by machines especially con
trived for the purpose, and with
greater accuracy, too, in tho pro
portions of tho various ingredients
No form of medication can bo
better than a pill, provided only it
is intelligently prepared. But right
here occurs the difficulty. Easy as
it may seem to- make a pill, or a
million of them, there arc really very
few pills that can be honestly com
mended for populnr use. Most of
them either undershoot or overshoot
the mark. As everybody takes pills
of some kind, it may be well to men
lion what a good, safe, and reliable
pill should be. Now, when one feels
dull and sleepy, and has more or
less pain in the head, sides, and
back, he may be suro his bowels arc
constipated, and his liver sluggish.
To remedy this unhappy state of
things there is nothing like a good
cathartic pill. It will act like a
charm by stimulating the liver into
doing its duty, anil ridding tho
digestive organs of the accumulated
But tiie good pill docs not gripe
and pain us, neither docs it mako us
sick and miserable for a few houra
or a whole day. It acts on the
entire glandular system at tho samo
time, else tho after-effects of the
pill wiU be worse than the disease
itself. The griping caused by most
pills is the result of irritating drugs
which they contain. Such pills are
harmful, and should never be used.
They sometimes even produce
hemorrhoids. Without having any
particular desire to praiso one pill
above another, we may, neverthe
less, hriiio Mother Scigel's Pills,
manufactured- by tho well-known
house of A. J. White, Limited, 35,
Farringdon Road, London, and now
sold by all chemists and medicine
vendors, as the only one we know
of that actually possesses every
desirable quality. They remove the
pressure upon tho brain, correct the
liver, and cause the bowels to act
with ease and regularity. They
never gripe or produce the slightest
sickness of the stomach, or any
other unpleasant feeling or symp
tom. Neither do they induco fur
ther constipation, as nearly all other
pills do. As a further and crown
ing merit, Mother Seigel's Pills are
covered with a tasteless and harm
less coaling, which causes them to
resemble pearls, thus rendering
them as pleasant to the palate as
they are elfective in curing disease.
If you have a severe cold and are
threatened with a fever, with pains
in the head, baok, and limbs, one
or two doses will break up the cold
aud prevent the fever. A coated
tongue, willi a brackish taste in the
mouth is caused by foul matter in
the stomach. A doso of Scigel's
Pills will effect, a speedy cure.
Often-tinics partially decayed food
in the stomach and bowels produces
sickness, nausea, &c. Cleanse the
bowels with a doso of these pills
and good health will follow.
Unlike many kinds of pills, they
do not make you feel worse before
you are better. They are, without
doubt, the best family physic over
discovered. They remove all ob
structions to the natural functions
in either sex without any unplensant
effects. Jan. 13-88-1
