faces were red and ioleles in many cases hung
tenderly to their beards.
For an instant they would stop, give a
single glance at tho long, narrow box, count
the figures and, with a shiver and a hltoh nt

bo far as to retrace their steps to seo if really
there was uny need of feeling so cold, but a

Eut Baoinaw, Mich,, Doc. 29. Thomas
B. Barry, moinbcr of tho General Exocutlro
Board of tho KnighU of Labor, was a leader
in the stnko of 1883, and his leadership of
tho strikers in tho jonrnoy to tho sovoral
mills on tho rivor to call the men out was
mado the ground for an action against him,
which resulted in a judgment now hanging
On July 11. 1886, several hundred mon
went from mill to mill to induco men still at
work to join tho striko for ton hours.
At tho planing-mill of tho Uoyt estate, of
which Win. L. Wobber Is tho Miclilcan
trusteo, Barry halted tho mon at somo ais
tanco from tho place, and ho and sovoral oth
ers hold a conference with tho employees.
This lastnd too long for tho waiting crowd,
and they invaded tho premises, drow tho Are
and shut down tho mill.
This was ouo of tbo counts in the informa
tion, against Barry in tho oriminal prosoou
tlon whioh resulted in acauittal, but later
Mr. Webber instituted civil proceedings
against the leadors of the strike, which
as was concroliy bcllovod. meroly indicatod
tbo intention of learning how far tho rights
of property-owners extended in tho control
of their premises against unwolcomo visitors.
The Circuit Court returned a vordlct of
9290.18 against tho defendants in favor of
Webber, but tho case of Barry was tnkon to
tho Supreme Court, which afilrmod tho do
clslou of tho lower court, holding that Mr.
Barry, bocauso of his acknowledged loodor
shlp.beearae responsible for thfi aotion of his
followers whether dono by his consontor
against his protest.
Nothing further was heard of tho case
until tho prosent week, when Mr. Barry was
notlflod by Webber's attorneys that hlmsolf
and co-defendants must pay tho judgmont
about 8400 or submit to tho process of a
Mr. Barry says i " I still labor honostly
uudor tho conviction that I have novor com.
mittcd sufflclont error to warrant tbo finding
of such damage, and I will not pay it.
" I couldn't if I would, and wouldn't if I
could. I would go to prison first. Tho
bones of better men than I havo docayod bo
hind bolts and bars because of tbolr efforts
to hotter tho condition of thoir fallow-mon.
I have not tho gold to glvo Mr. Wobbor, and
ho must tako the pound of flesh."
Mr. Webber's attorneys stato they cannot
say when tho threatened execution will bo
issuod. Thoy aro simply awaiting tho orders
of thoir client.

Wonderful Hnrsjleal Operation Performed on
a F. E. 1. Young; Olnn.
(snout, to Tnr wobld.i
Halitax, Dec. 29. A wonderful surgical
operation has boon performed at Elksdalo,
P. E. I., by Dr. Dovalo. Tho pationt, a young
man, was suddenly solzod last May with
eot ere pains in tho stomach. The complaint
did not seom liko nouralgla, and certainly it
was not inflammation. Tho patient also ex
perienced crooplng, crawling sensations In
the stomaoh. Alternating with tho pains
thorowero violent convulsions. Altogether
tho case was a most violent ono. It was piti
ful to bohold tbe terriblo sufferings of tho
Thn doctor did not nt first understand it,
but after carefully considering the symptoms
ho said : ' ' Tboro is a living animal in that
man's stomaoh, and I will tako it out."
Accordingly on the first of July ho pro
ceeded to operate, no had diagnosed tho an
imal to be located in tho right plenrio extrom
ity of tbe stomaoh. An inoision was mado
across tho opigrastum. Tho stomaoh being
contracted wns overlapped by tho liver. Ac
cordlngly the latter first presontod itself.
Tho liver was drawn up and cnrofully
stltchod to tho under surfaoe of tho abdom
inal wall. Thon the stomaoh was drawn up
to tho odgo of tho incision and neatly stitched
After a few days, to allow tho stomaoh to
form a connection to its now locality, ho
opened tho organ.
Thon a most remarkablo sight was pre
sented. A snako fully 12 inches long lay
colled up in the suspected locality.
Having obsorved light through the stom
aoh wall it was ready for aotion. As soon as
tho opening in tho stomach was made it
sprang at the hand oi the operator. Missing
its aim, it ohanged its tactlos. Tho attempt
was mado to escapo by dashing through
tho pylerlo orifice ; out in this it was foiled,
for the gallant oporator coized it by the tail
and draw it back.
Having elndod tho grasp of tbe forceps, an
attempt was mado to escapo into the oosoph.
agUB. Its passage there was not interrupted.
'Finally it emerged through tho mouth, and
the patient was thus relieved of his torment,
and lias completely reooverod.

Montbeax, Deo. 29. W. H. Anderson, of
Anderson & Oo. and of Oroeno & Co., man.
'tigers of the Oriont lino of steamships, who Is at
present in Canada in connection with tenders
for the carriage of mails, was interviewed
to-doy in relation to their sohomo for a new
line of steamers, whioh, if carried ont, will
materially diminish tho Canadian trade at
present carriod via New York.
Tho service proposed is a weekly one, con.
ducted by steamers of 7,000 tons gross, reels,
ter, length C2S foot over all. 61 feet breadth.
18,000 horse-power. It is also estimated that
tho capaolty of these ships for cargo would
bo greater than tho whole first-class freight
from Canada, as shown by published statis
tics. Tho only diffloulty in tho way is tho draught
of twenty-seven foot, which at present is too
mnoh for tbe St. Lawrence Channel.
When asked if the advantages of tho pro
posed lino would attract American trade he
replied that ho thought it certainly would, as
Eassangors by this lino could be landed in
hicago as Boon as direct passengers in New
York. 8uch service- in connection with tne
Iiroposod Faclfio Ocean line will attract a
urge Eastern and China trade. By means of
tho New Sanlt line passengers landed at Que.
beo or Halifax will arrive in Duluth or St.
Paul within a few hours of tno time they aro
now landed in New York.
" lias tho Oontral Paciflo Railroad any In.
tcrest in this lino?"
" None in particular, except what effeottt
will havq on freight and traffic in common
with all Canadian railways. It is an acknowl
edged faot that trade between Europe and
America can be corriod on more expeditiously
by the Canadian route, especially to tho
Western States, and with this soname tho
Sreaterpart of this Amorican trade will bo
Ivortod to Canada."
