It is respectfully suggested to Mr. Fisherman that the Chronic Growler must

he should fish nearer home.

Mr. Waterman, the geologist, is back
from seal hunting, where he has been try*

out with a partner, but they dissolved soon after, and Waterman went on
alone. He met, however, with but ill
success, He sighted a fine looking animal a long way off, and as he pulled
toward it, it moved away. He kept up
the chase which la*ted several days, and
discovered the object of his pursuit was a
dog fish just as he approached the 60
mile limit. He could only shake his fist
at it and send after it a very strong
epithet. On hi*-- way back he thought to
make a little stake by hand logging. So
he got quite a boom together, but his
stars fought him. The night before the
steamer came to take lhe boom away, it
got loose and the logs wctt carried away
with the tide, following the dog fish.
Speaking of dog fish calls to remembrance that a dng fish lead two of our
Bay fishermen a lively dance all one sum

Home Rule Bill Passed.

Courienay News] The Home Rule Bill
passed the third reading in the House of
Commons, and the first reading in (he
House of Lords.
Coates Answered.
Mr. Editor: Mr. Coates'letter in your
last issue of Aug. 30th is a fabrication,
and intended tu mislead the public, where
he says I told him I authorized the contractor to use certain material, and then
asked by what authority I could alter a
contract. He tries to make it appear
that 1 altered the contract alter it was
made, which I had a peifeet right to do,
if I found it tu be for the best interests of
Ihe district or work; but in this case, it
was not necessary, as thc only recem*
nicnciiiiion Mr. Conies has for his fair
material is that it is within 200 yards,���
he dont say it is any better nr even as
good as what was used. Now Mr. Coates
asked me if I authorized the contractor
to vise the loam of the red fir ridge. I
told him yes. He said if Frank Cunlifle
had gotten the contract, he was going to
haul this material from about 200 yards
away. 1 told him Frank would be a fool
to do so, for the speci cations called fcr
just what was put 011, and Frank knew as
I told him particularly where he was to
get the gravel. Since I came to Comox
Mr. Drabble and others have searched
for gravel in tha* locality without success
Now, Mr. Coales being a residant there
and more interested in having good roads
than in vending personal spite, should
have drawn my attention to this good
material before the work was completed;
and if 1 found upon investigation that it
would be better lo use it, I would have
done so; and if the contractor had read
his agreement, he would not dispute the
authoritv. Now, Mr. Editor, there is no
gravel there, and if there was, the red
loam that was used on the corduroy was
better as course gravel would shift and
have the logs bare, while the sandy loam
will pack and form a good road bed.
Mr.Coates also says it was given out thnt
all contracts had 10 be done right this
year. Well, judging from the cnmplimen
tary remarks off the general public, I
should think they are. He further says
that parties tendering had to find gravel
where they could, which is not so, as I
specified in every case except section No.
1 of the Union Mineroad,where the gravel had to come from, as 1 had trouble
wiih the contractor on that road about
the gravel, and to avoid any further
trouble, I specified where it was to be
gotten. I have been over the road two
or three limes myself, and can see nothing to complain of, and others have been
over it, and say it a good job. I won't
say Mr. Coates has a good road to his
door, but very near, with the exception
of two shon places that are soft in wet
weather; otherwise he has as good a road
to the wharf as any road on ihc Island,
and that is saying a good deal.

sinking to an exultant whisper, "how very,

Branksmero, who bus not recovered hia
color, regards her keenly.
" Vou are wrong til ouo particular," he
says slowly. "In spit * of all that has come

She sits up -ni her couch, an I lifting one

adds to thoir brilliancy.

"before yoii nceuso mo of hypocrisy,"

Closing tho ilonr, he returns to her aide
slowly, as one amazed, and awaits ia eileno
her explanation.
"It is mulling !" she sobs vehemently.

to call to you at all. But 1 could not let you

Impressed by the solemnity of his address,

words fall from her,

as though to go further, lo cntor into explanation, to terminate her sentence, ia beyond her.
"I am your "uvor now, ai I w*s then���as

" Lot me settle them," softly, as 1 hough
consoling a titt'o weary child, he speaks.
He raises tbe pillnws, inul is still arranging

her head falls back aa if exhausted. Her
eyes close, and Branksmoro, fearing she lias
again fainted, does not tlam lo stir, hardly

The tears slowly, very slowly, travel down
thc wan hues of her face, but her eyea go

"How good you are to mo !" ahe breathes.
Sho lifts the hand that is round her neck,
and drawing it still more lightly round her
presses the lingers to her lips. A thrill
runs through I bank bine ro. Now, at last,
whon despair haa seemed his portion, arc
life, hope, joy coming to him ? "But ynu
must not say such things to mo. My lover!
Alas 1 alt such times aro gone for mc. I

sharp and impassioned.
" All this is folly," cries sho excitedly,
rising on her ellmw. "Vou would ho something more than human to forgive what has
happened. It is impossible, 1 toll you."
Sim draws her breath witli an uncertain
violence, as though deeply agitated. Her

holds out her baud io him as she walks to
tho door.
All at once ahe pauses and, lifting her
hands to her auburn head, looks at him
"Shall I do? Is my hair all right?"
she asks bim anxiously. There is something
the confidential glance and tone that
convinces him more than all that has gone
before that she is indeed hia own.
" Oh, darling ! To think it is all true 1"
he says, somewhat irrelevantly, hut out of
the veiy fulness of hia heart.
"Hero bIio is," crioB Margery gayly, as
Muriel, followed by Lord Branksmere,
enters tho room. " Sn glad I" she whispers
lightly, to Mrs. Billy, who with Lady Aune
has been entertaining everybody,
They all rise in a body tn receive the

" Nonsense " Bays Halkett.
" Nol at all in my opinion. Very wiae,
on tho contrary, and very careful, hut vory

our little comedy Ilic honor to believe sho
would havo shown more pluck when ttie
crisis came, whatever Monsieur might do.
It was easy for him you Bee. Madame wus
bo decidedly paBsce,"
Pouf ; you know nothing," whispers
Mrs. Ainyot lightly, who lias grown very
respectable since her engagement.
She pauses to pull hor skirls aside, and to
smile on Tommy Paulyn, who, with Angelica, ia passing by, ui route to tlie conservatory beyond.
" There is a whisper in tho air that Paulyn ia going to settle down with that extremely youthful cousin of hia."
" What 1 that baby !"
������ It was Mrs, Daryl who whispered it to
mo. She ia a funny little woman, who tolls
a funny Httlo story vory well. Iiaatcveniiig,
it appears, May���one of tho twins���found
Paulyn with Miss Angelica in a distant and
rather unfrequented part of.tlie shrubberies,
in an attitude thatsiruek the child as being
full of interest. He had hia arm round her.
'I think he waa kissing her,' said Miss May,
' nud though she was very red, sho wasn't
a bit angry, and that's what I couldn't
understand because Tommy ia such an ugly
little thing?'"
They alt laugh,
" Well, 1 expect Tommy could, I declare
I call it absurd 1 Everybody is going to he

and"���nodding at Halkett���"yon! Lady
Anne and that insiino little Primrose, and '
last of all I hear that Margery, that pretty
little Daryl idiot, is going tn throw herself
away on that extremely ugly young man
who has come to grief with his income, and
isn't worth a sou. Sort of thing, after all,
one would expect from a girl with her
" 11 seems a sacrifice certainly," saya Mrs,
" I dare say not, I expect ho is good
enough for any woman who could so Binfully
IIing away her chances. But what is ahe
going to do with her big pauper? Of course
his si/e aggravates thu trouble. It must
tako such a lot to keep up those shoulders
of his."
" Ile hasn't a penny worth speaking
about, believe me. If sho doesn't very
wisely cry off, beforo she taken tlio fatal
plunge, thoy will know what it is Io ho beggars.    How horrid it sminds���cti 1"
" 1 bag your pardon, ma'am," says a
gttlff Voice behind them that makes Lady
liollair jump, for perhaps thu first timo iu
her imperturbable life, aud turns Mrs.
Amyot crimson. " That ' little Daryl
idiot,'in you so pnlitcly term my niece,
will never be a 'beggar' or a 'pauper'
either.'1 Sir Mutius Mumm, thrusting his
bead forward, glares at Lady Hollair, and
nods at her furiously.
Really, Sir Mutius, I���er���"
She is my niece, ma'am, mine," declares
Sir Mutius, in a tone rich in offended dig'

" I'm sure I congratulate her," returns
Lady Bcllair, who has now quito recovered
tier Helf-possession.
"My niece, ma'am, D'ye hear that!"
He pauses, as though what he has jus1,
said is astonishing himself also, " Nnnieco
of mine, ma'am need ho a pauper, or a beggar, or a vagrant,"
Without waiting a rejoinder to thia pretty
speech he hobbles away.
" To he his hei less means a good deal,"
aaya Mra, Ainyot,
" Lady lielbur, they owe vou an immense
debt of gratitude," laughs Halkott. " In
my opinion Sir Mutius would nover have

Margery'.) hoing, possibly, a beggar. 1 believe, in spite of yourself, you have done a
good action to-day,"
Well, really, I couldn't help it," returns

Oliil.t Made Drnuk by ita Mother
Just Imagine a mother administering intoxicants to her six-yo.ir-old child in sufficient quantity to endanger its life! This
was tho i-H'i'iii-i! for which Charlotte float
(;tl)) got a month's hard labor at Worship
Street, Loudon. Prisoner was seen in
Kingsland Road drunk, and on tho pavement a short distance from her lay a girl of
six, with fixed eyea and rigid limb*-. A
man named Rainbow took tho child tip.nnd
found It was so intoxicated as to be iiiBensi-
blo, Attention was called to Dip woman,
and Police constable 4230 look her iu
charge. At lhe station the medical olliccr
was called to the child, Lo which an emetic
was given, and it was thus relieved, but tho
divisional aut'genn said its life was at ono
timo in danger, Inspector (Joliy aaid inquiries had boon made as tn the history of
the child, who had heon living witli an
aunt. Prisoner had married a second tithe,
and had fallen very low, leading a wander*
ing, lodging-house life. Her lirst husband
had been killed by an accident, for which a
sum of ��490 was awarded hy a jury, i'lon
to go to tho oh lid, The sum wns handed
over to a trustee, who was authorised t
pay it out to prisoner at tlio rato of so much
a week, and ahe had obtained the wholo of
it, whilst the child was being kept by the
aunt, who had uot been paid.
It appeared that Armour had made the
great mistake of hia life. When people
came to know, they said that to have done
it when sober had shown him possessed of a
kind of maliciousness and cynicism almost
pardonable, but to do it when tipsy proved
liim merely veak and foolish. But the fact
is, ho waa less tipsy at the time than
was imagined; ami he could have answered to moro malice and cynicism
than was credited to him. To those who
know tho world it is not singular, that of
tho two, Armour was thought to have made
the mistake am) had the mis-fort nne, or that
people wasted their pity and their scorn
upon him aloni. Appparently they did not
see that tho woman was to be pitied, He
had married her -. and she was only an Indian girl from Kort Charles of the Hudson's
Bay Company, wilh a little honest white
blood in her veins. Nobody, not even her
own people, felt that she had anything at
stake, or was in danger of liidiappincBa, or
waa other than a person who had ludicrously
come hi hoar Lho name of Mrs. Francis Armour. If any ono hud said in just ideation
that she loved the man, the anawer would
have heon that plenty ol Indian women had
loved white men, but had nut married them,
and yet tho population of half-breeds went,
on increasing.
Krank Armour had been a popular man in
London, His club might' he found in tho
vicinity of Pall Mall, Ilia father's nauin was
high and honored in tho Army List, one of
his brothers had served with Wolaelt-y in
Africa, and him-iolf, having no profession,
but with a taste for business and investment,
had gone to Canada with some such Intention as Lord Selkirk's iu thn early part of
the century. He owned ian/n sharos
in lho Hudson's Bay Company, and
when he travelled through ttie North-
West country, prospecting, ho was received
most hospitality, Of an inquiring and gregarious turn of mind, ho went as much
among the half-lireods���or metis, as thoy
aro called���-and Indiana as among the
ollieers of tho Hudson's Bay Company and
tho white settlers. He had ever been credited with having a philosophical turn ; and
this was accompanied hy a certain si rain nf
impulsiveness or daring. Ho had been accustomed all his life to make up his mind
quickly, and, becauso ho was well enough
oil' to bear the consequences of momentary
rashness in commercial investments, he was
not counted among tlie transgressors. He
had his own fortune; ho was not drawing
upon a common purse. It was a different
matter when he truth eked rashly in the
family name, eo far aa to marry tho daughter
of Mye-of-the-Moon, the Indian chief.
Ho was tolerably happy when he went to
the Hudson's Bay country ; for Miaa Julia
Sherwood was his promised wife, and aho,
if poor, was notably beautiful and nf good
family. His people had not looked quite
kindly on this engagement; they had, indeed, tried in many ways to prevent It;
partly because of Miaa Sherwood's poverty,
ami also becauso thoy know that Lady
Agnes Martling bad long cared for him and
was moat happily endowed with wealth
ami good looks also. Whon he loft for
Canada thoy were inwardly glad (they imagined that something might oojur to end
the engagement), ���all except. Richard, tbe
wiseacre of the family, the book-man, the
drone, who preferred living at Oreyhope,
their Hertfordshire home, the yoar through
to spending half the time in Cavendish
Square. Richard was very fond of Frank,
admiring liim immensely Lir his huxom
strength and cleverness, and not a little,
ton, for that very rashness which had
brought him such havoc at last. Richard
was not, aa Frank uaed to any, "perfectly
sound on Ida pins,"���that is, ho was slight-
ly lame,���but he waa right at heart.
He was an immense reader, but made
little use of what ho read. Ho had an
abundant humour, ami remembered every
anecdote ho ever beard. Ho was kind to
the poor, walked much, talkod to himself as
he walked, and was known hy tho humble
aortas "a'ecntrio." But he had awisc head,
and ho foresaw danger to Frank's happiness
when ho went away. Whilo others had
gossiped ami moiimuvred and worn luisily
idle, lie had watched tilings. He saw that
Frank waa dear Lo Julia in proportion to
tho distance between tier and young Lord
Haldwcll, who.se father had done something
remarkable in guns or torpedoes and was
rewarded with a lordship and an uncommonly large fortune. Hn also saw that,
idler Frank left, ihedisii-iiix between Lord
Haldwcll and Julia hecaiucdistitictly less -
they wero both staying at ('reyhope, Julia
Sherwood waa a remarkably clever girl.
Though ho felt It hia duty to speak to her
for hia brothor,���a ditticiilt and de'icate
matter,���he thought it would come better
from hia mother.
But when hu took action it was too late.
Miss Sherwood naively declared that she
had not known her own lionrt, and that she
did not care for Frank any moro. She wept
a little, and was soothed by motherly Mra.
Armour, who was inwardly glad, though
sho know the matter would cause Frank
pain ; and even General Artmur could
not help showing slight satisfaction,
though he was Innoootlt of any deliberate action to separate the two. Straightway Miss Sherwood despatched a letter to
tlio wilds nf Canada, aud for a weak was
an unengaged young person. But sho waa
no doubt consoled by tho fact that for somo
time past, idle had  had complete control of
Lord Haldwoll's emotions. At tho end of
tho week her perceptions woro juatified hy
Lord II aid well's proposal; which, with admirable tact and obvious duinurencss, was
Now, Frank was wandering much in the
wilds, so that his letters ami papers went
careering about after him, and some thaL
came lirst wore last to reach him. That
was how ho received a newspaper announcing thn marriage of Lord Haldwcll and
-luliii Sherwood at Uui same time that Her
letter, written in estimahln Fnglinh and
with admirable fooling, came,  begging  for
a release Irom their engagement, and towards ils close, assuming, with a charmim*
regret, that all waa over nud thaL Lho last
Word had been said between them.
Ho was sitting in the trader's room at
Fm L Charles wlitm Lhe carrier came with the
mails, He had had anim) successful days
hunting bull.do with i-'yu-nf-itho-Moon and
a little band of met is, had had a long powwow, in l.yij-of-ihu-Moon'H lodgo had chatted gayly with Lall the daughter, and was
now prepared to enjoy heiirtily the arrears
of correspondence and news before him. lie
ran his hand through tho letters and papers
���niiing to classify thom immediately, ac-
cording to such hand writing as he recognized and the dates on tho envelopes. Rut, as
ha did sn, ho saw a newspaper from which
he wrapper was partly torn. He also saw
a note in the margin directing liim to a certain page. The note was iu Richard's handwriting. He opened the paper at the piigo
Indicated, ami saw the account of tho mar-
liege! His teeth clinched on his cigar, hia
face turned white, thc paper fell from his
fingera. He gasped, Ida hands spread out
nervously, then caught the table end held
it as though to steady himaolf.
The trader rose. " You aro ill," ho said.
"Have you bad news?" He glanced towards
the paper.
Slowly Armour folded Lho paper up, and
then rose unsteadily, " Cordon," lie said,
" givo me a glasa nf brandy." He turned
towards thc cupboard in lho room.   The
He ran his linger-* through tbe pile, turn
ng over hastily, as if aearching for something. The trader understood. He was a
cool-headed Scotsman ; he knew that there
were some tilings best not inquired
into, and that men muat have their bad
hours alone. He glanced at tbe brandy de-
batingly, but presently turned aud
left the room in silence. In hiB own
mind, however, he wished he might
have taken the brandy without being
discourteous. Armour had discovered Miss
Slierwood'a letter. Bofore he opened it he
took a little more brandy. Then he sat
down ami read it deliberately, Tlie liquor
hail steadied him. The fingers of one hand
even drummed on the table. But the face
was drawn, the eyes were hard, and tho
look of liim was altogether pinched. After
he had finished thia, he looked for others
from the same band. He found none.
Then he picked out those from hia mother
and father. He read them grimly, Onee
he paused as ho read his mother e letter,
ami took a great gulp of plain brandy.
There was something very like a sneer on
his face when lie finished it. He read the
hollowncss ot the sympathy extended to
him; lie understood the far from adroit
references lo Lady Agnes Martling. He
was very bitter. Ho read no more letters,
hut Look up the Morning Poat again, and
read it slowly through. Tho look ot his
face waa not pleasant, Thore was a email
looking-glt.sB opposite him, He caught
sight uf himself in it. He drew his hand
hia oyrs und forehead, as though he
was   in  a   miserably dream.    Hu  looked
���.���-���.iii .-   ho <-niil<| not iv. at^iiw.e? himself.
He then bundled the letters and papers
inio Ids despatch box, Hia attention was
drawn In oue tetter. He picked it up. It
was from Richard. He started to break
the seal, but paused. The strain of tho
event was too much. He winced. He determined not to road it then ; to wait until
be had recovered himself. He laughed now
painfully. It had been better for him���it ���
had, maybe, averted what peoplo wore used
to term his tragedy���had ho read his
brother's letter at that moment. For Richard Armour was a sensible man, notwithstanding his peculiarities ; and perhaps the
moat sensible words he ever wrote were in
that letter thrust unceremoniously into
Frank Armour's pocket.
Armour had received a terriblo blow. He
read hia life backward. Ho had no futuro.
Tho liquor he had drunk had not fevered
him, it had not wildly excited him; it merely drew him up to a point where he could
put a Budden impulse into practice,without
il inching, He was bitter against his
peoplo ; ho credited them with more
interference than was actual. He felt that
happiness had gone out of his life and
loft him hopeless, Aa we said, he was a
man of quick decision?. Ho would have
made a dashing but resklesa soldier ; he waa
not without tho elements of the gamester.
It is possible that there waa in him also a
strain of cruelty, undeveloped but radical,
Life bo far bad developed the best in him ;
hO had boon cheery and candid. Now ho
travelled hack into new avenues nt his mind
and found strange aboriginal passions, fully
adapted to tho present situation. Vulgar
anger and reproaches were not after his
nature. He suddenly found sources of ri-
fined retaliation. He drew upon them. He
would do something Lo humiliate his people
and the girl who had spoiled Ids life. Some
one tiling ! It would be absolute and last'
ing, it would show how low had fallen Ida
opinion of whom .Iulia Sherwood had once
been ct liefest to liim, Iu that he would
show his scorn of her. Ha would bring
down thc pride of his family, who, he boliuv-
od, had helped, out of mere selfishness
to tumble his happiness into the shambles-
He was older by years than an hour ago.
But ha was not -without the faculty of bum-
or. That was why he did not become very
exalted; it Was also why ha determined
upon a enmody whicli ahould have all tho
elements of tragedy. I'eihups, however, In-
had not carried his purposes to immediate
conchuions, were it not thut Lho very gods
soemed to play bis game wilh him. For,
whilo ho stood there, looking out into the
yard of the fort, a Protestant missionary
passed the window. The Protestant mi.*-
sionary, as-ho is found at such places as
Fori Charles, is not a strictly superior person. A Jerillt might havo been of advantage to Frank Armour at that moment. The
Protestant missionary is not ahovecomforl-
able assurances of gold. So that when Armour summoned this one in, and told him
what was required of him, and slipped a
generous gift of the queen's coin into bis
hand, ho smiled vaguely and was willing to
do what he waa bidden. Had he been a
Jesuit, who Is sworn to poverty, and more
of ton than not a man of birth and education,
he might have lnlliiciiccd Frank  Armour
tc appreciate at their proper value the mfi*'
fortunes, as the fortunes, of lite. While
Frank Armour read he came tn feel for
tho tirst time that his brother Richard had
Buffered, maybe, from some such misery as
had io come to him through Jnliti Sherwood.
It was a dispassionate, manly teller, relieved by a gentle wit, and hinting with careful
kindness that a sudden,blow was belter for
a man than a life-long thorn in his side. 01
Julia Sherwood he had nothing particularly
bitter to say. Hcdelicutety suggested that she
acted according to her nature, and that ia
the seesaw of life Frank had had a aore
blow ; but this waa to be borne. The letter
did not aay too much ; it did not magnify the
difficulty, it did not depreciate ir. It did not
cveu directly connael; it waa wholesomely,
tenderly judicial. Indirectly it dwelt upon
the steadiness and manliness of Frank's
character; directly, Lightly, aud without
rhetoric, itenlargel upon theirowu comrade-
ahip. It ran over pleasantly the daya of their
boyhood when ihey were hardly ever separated. It made distinct, yet with no
obvious purpose, bow good were friendship
and iMiifidcnce ��� *,��� hieh might bo tho mnnt
unselfish thing in the world���between Iwo
man. With tho letter liefore him Frank
Armour saw his act iu a new light.
As we aaid, it ia possible if he had read it
on the day when his trouble camo to him,
he had not married Lali, nor sent hor to
England on thia���to her���involuntary mission of revenge. Itia possible, also, that
thore oame to him the lirst vague conception
of the wrong ho had dono this Indian girl,
who undoubtedly married him because alio
cared fur him after tier heathen fashion,
wldle he had married her for nothing that
was commendable ; not oven for passion,
which may he pardoned, nor for vanity,
which has ita virtues. He had had hiB hour
with ciroumstanco -, circumstance \\ mild
have its hour with him in duo time. Vet
there was no extraordinary revulsion. Ho
wai atill angry, cynical, and very sore. He
would seo the play out witli a consistent
firmness. He utmost managed a smile

In looking over our hooks we find that

some of them for many months. Newspapers can not be run on credit, .ind wc

On Monday August 25th the last nf the
(lovernment amendments to the Home
Rule Hill were carried amid loud and repeated cheers nn the part ofthe Liberal
and Irish, and the silence ofthe Opposition. In each division the majority was
38. The third reading was announced
(or the following Wednesday.
Thc World's Fair is mote ofa drawing
card at the last as was to be supposed.
The crowds of visitors have greatly in
creased within the past few days, and it
is to be hoped that it will not be financial
ly so much ofa failure as to deter future
enterprises ofa like character. In every
other respect it has been successful. It
is a vast educator and is doing much
good in illustrating the unity of human
The result of the French election is
significant. The Boulangist and Royalist parties have been ground to powder.
The Republicans are natually jubilant. It
is true there will have to be a re-election
in 155 districts. This is owing to the
fact that in the first ballot no one party
had a majority over all others. It is certain that the trend is so strong in this direction that the Republicans will win the
great majority in the remaining contests.
The cable announced that the rcballoting
was to take place Sept. 3, but tbe issue is
already settled and the government have
signally triumphed.
The vote in the Lowe. House of the
American Congress by which the free
coinage of silver was snowed under indicates the popular feeling. The Senate
h:is yet to act but whether the Sherman
Act will be unconditionally* repealed remains to be seen. The fight on silver
.has undoubtedly had an injurious effect
on affairs in Kootenay. Silver is the
poor man's money and will -always be
useful as a subsidiary coin, but its value
is fluctuating, and it will never be the
equal of gold as a standard. It will do
no harm if a little less attention is given
to mining and a good deal more to agriculture.
The action of the English Board of
Agriculture in declining the invitation of
the Canadian Government to appoint two
experts to proceed, at the expense of the
Dominion, to Canada and make an exhaustive enquiry into the alleged existence of pleuro-pneunionia, is to say the
least a little remarkable. Why should
England desire to shut out our cattle
from British markets, unless it be necessary for h-:r protection? We insist that
our cattle are free from disease, and ask
an investigation at our expense. This
should in common justice be granted.
Hut John Hull' having taken his stand,
although on insufficent evidence' is not
disposed to admit his mistake. In a
year or two he may consider whether our
cattle continue to be infected, but whether they were or are so now���never. We
must bide his time.
The Canadian-Australian line has
more than met the expectations of its
friends and is developing a trade of most
important proportions. So snt-sfactory
are the results (ot the short time it has
been in operation that the Dominion
Government has concluded a contract
with its management fora term of 14
yeats service, and the Canadian Pacific
Railway has concluded an agreement to
act as its agent in Canada, the United
States and England for 10 years. A third
steamer is to be immediately added to
the line and the number to be increased
as the traffic shall warrant. This is certainly good news. It is trade in the right
direction��� between the parts of the British Empire, and must lead to an early
adjustment of the tariff which shall cheap
en many articles of food.

This town is located in the
midst ofthe largest agricultural
settlement on Vancouver Island. It is within six miles of
Union Mines affording the farmers of the valley the very
best home market, and is situated on the only highway
leading from the settlement to
the mines. The lumber interests of this section are most ex
tensive, and are an important
factor in our progress.
The per cent of improvements of this town during the
present year is greater than
any other place the Coast
can boast of, and the march of
improvement is still onward.
The prosperity of the town
has-for its foundations, therefore large mineral, agricultural,
and timber recources. It may
also be added that no section
furnishes a better field for the
sportsman. Fish and game
are always abundant and our
hotels of the best.
