28. Rev. Canon O'Meara is here on a trip in the interest of domestic mission work in Rupert's Land. In an interview he said the contributions so far were very satisfactory. He thought the material prospects of the settlers in the Northwest were of the brightest.

"People seem fairly well satisfied with their lots," he said, "although there aOe eomo districts where the crops are short and there is undoubtedly much suffering. Ia a period of ten years there has been a very distinct advance ia the average prosperity and comfort of the settlers. The greatest drawback at present is the low price of wheat. The oost of living has materially decreased in the past few years, and I do thiuk it will jow average more than 12 or IS per cent higher than in the east.

He advocated the repeal of the duly because it was right and just to do so, because it was a protective duty levied for tho benefit of the sugar trusts and against the interests of the consumers, because it would relieve the irritation of foreign governments, and because the revenue arising from it was not needed.

A Woman Arrested at Brockville Charged With Bigamy and Poisoning'. Brockville, Jan. 28. Mrs. Annie Dowi-ley, of Mallorytown, is in jail on the charge of bigamy and She was formerly Annie Graham, a beautiful girl.

When 17 years of age she married Dowsley. A few months after she went to Brockville she changed name to Macdonald, and subsequently went to Gananoquc, where, it is alleged, she entered into a conspirrcy with a man named Williamson, a marble dealer, to marry James Dempster, a acptua- Senerian farmer aear New Dublin, and in-uce him to hand over his properly, estimated to be worth $25,000, one-half of which she was to give to Williamson. They were married last August; then Dowsley appeared on the scene and threatened if one half of the property was not deeded to him that he would have his wife arrested for bigamy. His offer was declined. She was arrested and Williamson has fled.

It is also that she got poison to kill the old man, and the arrest prevented the consummation of this part of the plot. DYNAMITE SEIZURE. Nearly Two Tons of the Terrible Staff Taken From P. Labby's Barn. Port Arthur, Jan.

26. The Sentinel issued an extia to day containing the following: Customs Collector Nicholson seized 71 Ixixesol dynamite lost night. It was found in a warehouse on oourt street, just behind Mr. Win. Vigars' bouse.

The dynamite has come from the Paulson mine, at the Minnesota end of the P. A. 1. A W. track, and Mr.

Labby accounta for being in poascstion of it by stating that hs purchased it from "a man." The seizure took place about half past four en Friday eveniug, and Mr. Nicholson at once put men on to watch it, and took immediate steps to procure a suitable place in which to store the dynamite. It was removed early this morning by permission of Mr. Geo. H.

Macdonell, M.P., to the Hamilton Powder magazine, and the fears of the people who live adjacent to Mr. Labby's place will thus be relieved. Mr. Nicholson obtained the Information from P. A.

D. A Way, that the company brought in the powder, twenty-one boxes on Nov. 27, 1X94, and fifty boxes on ths 0th of January, 1895. All the parties are known who have had any connection with tbe transaction, but their names are for obvious reasons withheld. Wholesale arrests will follow, and it behoves the authorities, municipal and otherwise to take immediate steps for the punishment of the offenders.

Tbe offenses in connection with this case are of the greatest magnitude, but we are sorry to say that great as the punishment is it falls short of being sufficient. Mr. Nicholson is entitled to great credit for his prompt and ellicieut steps in ridding the town of this great peril. Canadian News Notes. Smith, of Hamilton.

The committee feels that the results are the mors discouraging as new cases of ruin and destitution continue to come in.

Williamson. 220 Edmonton street, at 7.20 o'clock. The south fire hall sent aa engine and chemical, but tbe latter was sutlicient to put matters in order. The cause of the trouble was a defective flue and the damage will oot exceed 0. rihi is vokt Before the above fire could safely be ieit (20 minutes later) the alarm was rung from the corner of Ttcbe street and River avenue, and this also being oa the south district the central engine was the first on the spot, notwithstanding the fact that Chief Code is far from being well, on the second alarm sounding he sprung out among the first and was there to personally conJu-H the fighting operations; when they arrived on the scene they found a serious blaze in Mr.

U. M. Drummoud's residence. The gentleman named was manfully fighting ths amea with pails of water and trying to stay their progress before the brigad arrived; he was fairly successful as matters, bad as they were, might have been worse. The residence is of brick veneer and the fire originated from the floor safe, whioh is supposed to havs been in defective condition either in the safe itself or the elbow adjoining.

The' fire had got good headway Ufore being discovered and the brigade were at work for upwards of an hour before it was under control. Mr. J. Strachan, who lives with Mr. Drummond, was not alarmed until it was too lata for him to escape from his room by the stairway and bis calls for assistance brought Conductor DiDgman, of the electric Street railway, whose ear was approaching, to his assistance.

Mr. Dlngman commenced to construct a temporary ladder, but the place got too hot and Mr. Htrachan jumped from the roof of the veranda to the ground below, dislocating his hip. Conductor Dingman carried nim to the residence of Mr. Drummond's brother near by, where he received medical treatment.

Mr. bands were frozen with ths exposure. The damage to the building will amount to about f-'JOO, while it is difficult to estimate the value of ths furniture, but 11,000, it ia generally believed, will cover this, making the total Iocs about 1,300.
