No fcrfhsr movement of the ice to-day.
A good part of the harbor below the bridge
is clcir, and the lorry boats are running,

how far tha i^ still solid. It is not
likely to move for several days. The ice
about the bridge, north, indefinitely, is
aiso firm. Advices from Herman, on the
Missouri river, Btate the ioe in the lower
Gascon&da river is ranuiDg out, but wheth

in the Missonri is doubtful. The proba- i
bilities are that it will lake several days
of warmer weather, considerable rain and
something of a rise to break up that
stream. Tho wrecking steamer Salvo No,

---000; insured for $12,000, in Pittsburg and
eastern offices. It is feared
she will be a total loss. She
is owned by the St. Louis Underwriters &
Wrecking company. The ttiamar Min
neapolis, also sunk, is owned by the St.
Louis & st. Paul Packet company, and ia
worth $10,000; no marine insurance. The
barge Robert Mitchell valued at $10,000
asd insured for $4,000, and the steamer
Charley Bowtn, are pushed out on the
bank and the stern badly twisted, but will
probably be enved. The Bowen and
Mitchell are owned by Siebke & Schrage,

or lying at the b&nk within a diatanca of
three miles of the bridge, twenty steam
ers, five transfer boats, ten ferry boats,
seven tugs, twenty-two barges aDd six
wharf boats, worth considerably over a
million of dollars, and a good deal of ap

of these crafts are in dangerous positions
and can hardly escape destruction when
the river breaks up.

The suicide at the Windsor House, St.
Paul, on Saturday lust, ofJ. H. Emslie,
of Winnipeg, waa such a mysterious affair
. that the following from the Winnipeg
Daily Times will be read with interest.
After giving the Globe narrativo
of the suicide as it transpired in this city,
the Times adds tho following:
DESPONDENT.
I•■ appears that Mr. Ernslio hail bcon very des
pond ?nt over business matters foretime time
past and had expressed his intention of remov
ing to Port Arthur to engage in business there.
A week ago last Saturday he informed his friends
that he wa i going to St. Paul, which he did Ho
wrote to his wife and brother after his arrival
there, the letters arriving a short time before
tho
NEWS OP HIS DEATH.
The letters were written at the Y. M. G. A.
rooms in tit. Paul, and did not convey the least
idea of hi. intention to commit suicide, but in
dicated throughout a tone of despondency.
Mr. Emslie came to this country ia the early
part of the year 1873, and was consequently
about eleven years in the country. Ho entered
upon the business of customs broker immedi
ately upon Ids arrival, and kept at that business
ever since. He was an adept in the entry busi
ness, and his efforts were rewarded with finan
cial success. He invested during
THE LATE BOOM
in considerable loal estate, bat his expectations
in this direction had nut been realized, and one
trouble brought on another, that seomed in the
oud to prey too much npou hia mind. The de
ceased roiurcod to Hamilton, Ont., in the fall
of 1873, when he got married, returning to this
country wi'h his wifo, having decided to take
up his permanent residence in Winnipeg. He
leaves a widow and two daughters, one eight
years of ago and tbe other two, to mourn tho
SUDDEN AND TBAGIO DEMISE
of a husband and father. There is but one feel
ing in the community, that of the most heart
felt sorrow, at the bereavement sustained by
relatives, and kind friends have gathered around
to extend to them every condolence in the hour
of deep affliction.
UIS LAST MESSAGE.
Tho two letters found on the deceased as
mentioaod above arrived by last evenings train.
One was addressed to Bruce Caldwell, of the
Custom House, directing him to lind check No.
21,061, b'>inij a check for package of i!r. Han
son, lying in baggage room at Winnipeg. It
ba'.le iii-n good-bye and asked to give his best
to old f rioi ds in tha Custom House.
THE LAST WOBDS WERE:
md hink kindly of me, and don't blamo
"(1 much. When you gel thißlwillbe
dead."
The other was addressed to G. E. Day, agent
o£ tho Merchants Despatch Transportation com
pany, Winnipeg. The deceased iiari ;i paid up
life insurance policy on his life for $3,000 or
$6,000.
A TisiKs reporter this morning interviewed
Mr. W. H. burn, the paitner of the deceased,
in order to leain ci me additional iLforj .
4lha unfoitunate man.
''It is stated that Mr. Enislie was largely in
volved in somo real estate transactions aad other
deals in which lie was unable to meet the pay
ments, and that lie is largely indebted to vari
ous mere-Wits in the city?" 6aid the scribe.
';It is true that he was interested in a krge
amount of real estate, and was behind in pay
ments. The parties to whom he was indebted
were continually pushing and threatening him,
and +0 this alone hia rash act may be attributed.
I suppose ha owed a few other accounts to mer
chants with whom he dealt, but the real estate
was the real cause of the trouble."
"Had you any intimation that he intended to
commit suicide?"
"None in the least, nor did I ever think he was
of that disposition. I always regarded him ac a
plodder who would take life as it came. We
had considerable business at Gretna and when
lie left a week ago last Sunday evening I under
stood he was going to that place on business.
On Thursday, however, his wifo and brother
J ->! n received letter from St. Paul writien in a
very despondent tone saying that ho hr.rl not
enough money to return home and had endeav
ored to pawn his watch for sufficient money to
pay his fare a:id failod and in conclusion as
sured thorn both that they would never see him
again. Ho was a first-clats bus mess man and
probably no one ia the country was as well
posted on custom matters.

friends. Whoa all had viewed the remains they

PBEPABING FOB THE FIGHT.
London, Jan. —A deputation of the
Leeds Liberal conference called upon
Gladstone and submitted resolutions in
favor of the further extension of the suf
frage. Gladstone said they would be made
aware of the intentions of the government
in a few days, and it would be out of
plaoe to give particulars now.
What was wanted was, union
in the government itself. It should
have a clear apprehension of the purpose
it had in hand, and a resolute determina
tion to strive for the attainment of that
purpose. The country should be on its
guard against direct and indirect methods
of opposition. In conclusion, ke expressed
the hope that the deputation would find
that the promises held out by the various
members would not be unfilled.
A deputation of the Indian residents of
London, many of them attired in their
native coatunite, presented Gladstone with
a birtkday address. The policy of the
government ia India was eulogized, and a
suitable reply to the address was made by
Gladstone, amid great a j plause.
Gladstone received a deputation from
250 tradrs union's delegates. They were
introdaoed by Joseph Arch, champion of
the agricultural labors, and by Broadhurst
acd Burley, members of parliament. They
urjjed the extension of the county fran
chiec-. In reply, Gladstone said, their
depatation had done nsach to dißpel tke
doabt as to the desire of the people of
England generally, for the extension of
the franchise throughout Great Britain
and Ireland.
The jfovemmant were convinced that
the time for aotion was at hand. There
were no truer supporters of the rights and
claims of all classes than those called the
workingmen. He was glad that the Clyde
shipwrights and agricultural laborers wore
so fitly represented by the delegates. In
conclusion, he said action would presently
be taken which would giyo an effect to tho
pledges of the government, and he urged
them to iudge the government accord
ingly,
In replying to the deputation from tho
Metropolitan Liberal association, Glad
stone thanked tho deputation for leaving
the government to decide the order in
which the principal measures should be
presented to parliament. The condition
of London, so far as regards its municipal
and local government, was nothing less
than scandalous. The responsibility for
this rests with tho legislative power, which
was greatly overtasked, and could only
overtake its work by the strenuous en
deavors of all parties, The government
would do everything in their power to fur
ther the progress of business.

AT THE GATE.
"And where were you just now, Mabel,
Where have you been &o long
Tho moon is np and all the birds
Have sung their evening song,
I saw you loitering down the path,
So lonely and so late,
Beyond the well and tho lilac bush,
And hanging at the gato."
"I lovo to hear tht birds, mother,
And soethe rising moon,
And, oh, the summer air is sweet
Beneath the sky of June;
My cow is milked, my hens are cooped,
And washed are cup and plate;
So 1 just wacdered out awhile
lohang upon the gate."
"The gate is by the road, Mabel,
And idle folks go by,
Nor should a maiden brook the glance
Of every 6tranger eye;
Besides I thought I saw a cap—
I'm sure you had a mate;
So tell me who, wita you, my child,
Was hacging at the gata."
"Now, you kEow just as well, mother,
kTwas only Harry Gray;
He spoke such words tome to-night,
I kcew not what to say;
And, mother, oh, for your dear sa^e,
I only bade him wait—
And might I ran and tell him now?
He's hanging at the gate."

the mountain quail, which they resemble in

either our quail or pheasant, being lighter in
color and plainer. These little birds are much
esteemed by the Chinese, both as delicate dish
and on account of tha pugnacity of the males,
which is so great that they are used for rjjjht
