current Events and Opinions.
Boforo tlie war between France
and Olihia, an English naval oflicer,
Oaptaiu Lung, commanded the Ohinese fleet, and succeeded in bringing
it to ti high state of efficiency. Tiie
captain was consequently much respected und admired. When hostilities commenced, Captain Lang
threw ,up his appointment; he
thought that, as lie was an officer of
a neutral powor, it was not right
for him to mix in the quarrels of
other nations. A crowd of impe-.
cunious Germans at onco applied
for thc post, and a Captain Sebelin
was selected and named Admiral.
After a timo the Chineso thought
that, under the gallant officer
sway, things wftre going wrong. He
wus accordingly requested to retire;
and Captain Lang wns then invited
to return, whieh he did, leaving
England for Tientsin in December
last This dismissal of a German
in fuvor of an Englishman, whilo
gratifying to England, as showing
that the ability of the British sailor
is still thought something of hy
foreign nations, must be extremely
displeasing to Bismarck, especially
as his scheme for enlarging Gorman
influence in China by means of
great public works there under German auspices, based on loans raised
in the London market, has gono
somewhat awry through troublo in
China about tho ironclads built in
tho Baltic by German firms. Thoso
vessels, four in all, appear to have
been constructed on such novel and
ingenious linos, that if one of the
heavy guns on board had been discharged, tlio whole aftnir would certainly havo gone to the bottom.
The Chineso minister in Berlin was
dismissed his post and desired to
return to Pekin iu order to have
his head chopped off, or sudor other
punishment, for tho ignorance displayed by tlie Ton tonic ship builders.
Ho did not, howover, seo the force
of the .latter request, und up to tlm
present moment his native land
knows him not,—The Week.
Tlio ollicial attitude of this country toward thc Chinese is one of
signal dishonor. Wo aro bound by
treaty to sxert all our power to
devise measures for the protection
of the Ohinese who may be outraged and wronged upon our tem-
tority, and we have engaged to secure them the same rights, privileges, immunities, and exemptions
that aro enjoyed hero by the citizens or subjects of the most favored
countrios. But when the Chinese
who are so unfortunate as to havo
come to the United States are murdered, robbed, driven from thi
homes and trades, and made the
innocent victims of a ruthless terror, and the Chinese minister, pointing to the troutius, protests and demands redress, the secretary of stato
—Mr. Evarts or Mr. Blaine or Mr.
Bayard—politely informs him that
thero is no principle of national obligation and no treaty stipulation
whieh guarantees redress, but omits
to inform him what the guarantee
of protection means. The president in a spocial message justly
characterizes tho outrages to which
the Ohinese have been subjected,
and denounces "the pnlpnblo and
discreditable failure of tlie authorities of Wyoming Territory to bring
to justice the guilty parties, or to
assure the sufferers an, impartial
forum in which to seek and obtain
compensation for tho losses" which
the Ohinese have incurred. But he
holds that the government is under
no obligation, either by treaty or*
by the law of nations, to indemnify
the victims. But he recommends
an act of grace and generosity in
the form of a gift, which, howevor,
is not to be drawn into a precedent.
But even if our duty be not defined
in a treaty or in international law,
it iB found in the obligation of the
United States to keep its own peace
in territory subject to its exclusive
authority. Should thero bu wholesale slaughter and robbery and enforced exile of all Knglish settlers
in a territory, we venture to say
thafc a remedy would bo found with-
, out delay. Or if a certain class of
Americans were outraged iu the
same way, the United States would
• protect them, oven if it hud to oall
r lor volunteers. It is not a Chineso
question: it is an American question. It iB tho primary question of
! evory governmont, that of main-
i tainiug order and enforcing respeot
for its authority. The troatmout
to which tho Chinese upon thoPuci-
l flc slopo aro exposed from ignorant
.■ nnd brutal mobs may bo inferred
from the fact that a sonator from
Oregon proposes to prohibit tho entrance of all Ohinese. into the
country. When the present luw of
J exclusion was passed tho United
! States stigmatized the wholo Oliiu-
,,€86 race, and undoubtedly stimu-
, lated the maltreatment of all who

are now here. It is bound by
every moral obligation of national
honor not only to indemnify those
who have suffered, but w tAke every
reasonable step for their protection

and purpose are now fully disclosed.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
On Wednoadny tho Viotoria and
Saanich Railway bill wos advanced
a stage, and tho Vancouver Gus
bill was then tnlccii up. Messrs.
Helgesen and Drake objected to the
bill in its present shape/ m there
were not sufficient guarantees that
the work would be carried out
promptly. Mr. Orr said it would
not pay to oreot works at present,
because the consumption of gas
would bo rery limited. The company only asked for exclusive privileges for three years, Hon. Jno.
Robson said that while not wishing
to oppose the' bill, he saw many
things in it which were objectionable. The house should not give to
any company of men an exclusive
franchise for nearly five years, for it
would bo merely enabling them to
sleep as it were on tlieir franchise
until the corporation or some one
else was forced to buy them out
Some guarantee should bo given
tbat work would at once be commenced and that in eighteen months
the people of Vancouver be furnished with a gas supply. The bill
should receive many material
amendments. Mr. Drake proposed
an amendment to enable any company to manufacture gas for use on
its own property, Mr. Orr opposed
this, and it was amended by substituting "workshops and factories"
for "proporty," but the amendment
was rejected. It was stipulated
that the company should expend
§25,000 within two yoars, and the
amount to bo deposited within 30
days was raised from §2,.ti00 to $4,-
000.
On Thursday Mr. Grant moved
for nn address to tbo Dominion government praying that a monthly
mail bo established between Fort
Simpson nnd Queen Charlotte Islands. In reply to Mr. Grant, Hon,
Mr. Robson stated that tho exhibition of provincial minerals in Lon
don had beon entrusted to Dr. Dawson, nf tho geological survoy. The
Victoria and Saanich Railway bill,
the 'r'mdlay Greek leaso bill, and
the Now Westminster and Port
Moody Tolephono bill, were completed, aftor adding clauses preventing
the employment of Chinese.
Hon. Mr. Davie moved thc adoption of tho roport on the land amend-
ment bill. Mr. Eaavcn moved in
amendment that no free or partially
freo grant of land should be made
to any person until the matter has
beon approved by the house. Hon.
Mr. Smitho said this amendment
would practically nullify tho clause
Thore was muoh enquiry abroad
respecting Britisli Oolumbia as a
country for immigration, communications from all parts of the world
having been addressed to tho land
office in this particular—even from
remote Iceland—containing propositions for favorable conditions for
small colonies of persons to settle
in this country. There were numberless spots on this coast where
there was a rigorous climate, good
agricultural and some of the finest
pasture land in America. If colj
onists from the northern countries
of Europe could be got out here it
would be possible to colonize some
of our northern islands, for as long
as the clause stood as it was tho
govornmont were in a position to
deal with such propositions as beforo mentioned and grant either
free or partially freo areas of land.
Was it likely that this or any government would abuse the authority
that was thus given them f And
yot without uny such assertion hnving been made the leader of tlie
opposition wished to press an amendment which would simply have the
effect of killing all possibility of
concession on the part of the government iu this direction. The
clnuso now stood as it had for eleven
years, and it not only l|ud not been
unduly taken advantage of in the
past but should it ever be in the
futuro there was always a safeguard
whioh would make any government
very careful of the way in whioh
they dealt with land under this
clause, viz., their depos:tion by the
house. It wns absurd to maintain,
us tho leader of the opposition did,
that the government, if tho olauso
was amended ns proposed, could
mako preparations previous to the
submission of nny colonization proposition to the house, because emigration agents might say that wliatover tho govornmont might ho willing to do, the former could not
take tho responsibility of bringing
out a colony of settlors undor any
arrangement made with tho government of tho provinco when aware
lhat those arrangements might bo
upset in a moment 'by thc houso.
lio thought it wns an innovation
which tho house wits not at all inclined to encourngo or adopt Mr.
Grunt suid tho amendment was
moved with the idea of relieving
tho government of the responsibility
of dealing with lands under this
olause.

Wednesday Morulug, Mnreh is. 1886.
From .the annual statement of
the marine department it appears
that our shipping interests nre not
flourishing. During tlio year there
has been a decroase of 21,891 tons.
In 1878 Canada had 1,333,015 tons
of shipping, but now it is 1,231,-
856. It is a fact which protectionists may uot deem worthy of special
note, but which may be mentioned
: nevertheless, tlint the shipping of
Canada reached its largest proportions in 1878, the year before the
adoption of the N. P., and that it
has been growing less over since.
This may not be a point in favor of
frae trade, but it certainly cannot
' be made against it.     The develop*
■ ments sure to take place almost immediately on the Canadian Pacific
coast ought to add something to our
: national shipping.
Independence or Parliament.
A few days ago t> return was presented to the legislature showing
the amounts paid by the government to members of the house, or to
1 firms in which members had an interest, since last election. Tlie return shows that, in addition to Mr.
Cunningham, there nre 7 members
who have received government
money. The complete list is as follows :
Cuuniucham & Co §2,0118.75
Mara      721.22
Grant & Co      G92.88
McLeese      505.38
Galbraith Bros      420.48
Dingwall        83.32
Semlin        35.00
Helgesen        12.37
From this list it wilt be seen that
the practice of dealing in government supplies has by no mentis been
confined to supporters of tlie government, but that there is scarcely a
member of the opposition who hus
abstained from it In some cases
undoubtedly the cirou instances were
such us to form a very good justification of the act, but it is of the
highest importance that the independence of members of the legislature should bo placed beyond question. It is a very remarkablo circumstance that not one of the newspapers has ventured to make any
remarks upon the subject since tiie
appearance of this return. The
Standard is the only paper that bus
oven published a statement of the
return, and it did so without remark.
After all the shouting over Mr.
Cunningham's accounts, why this
silence with respect to the others 1
We aro sure the electors generally
wish to see the House absolutely free
from the temptations which government patronage may contain, and
we should be sorry to see the law
made less stringent than it is now.
have been found the samo names!
But if the petition presented to the
license court was au honest document, and fairly represented public
opinion in Maple 1-Jidge, it was undoubtedly the duty of the court to
consider its prayer, The persons
who constitute ii license court have
a representative character which
must not be laid aside when official
acts are being performed. They
may be of opinion that no liquor
should be sold at all, and as individuals they are justified in standing by that opinion with the utmost
firmness; but as a court they are
bound to entertain the properly expressed wishes of tlio people through
whose grace they became a court.
We can scarcely believe that there
are 81 persons in Maple Ridge who
favor the perpetuation of tlie liquor
traffic tliere, and a continuation of
the disgraceful scenes which have
resulted. When tho true inwardness of this petition comes to be
known, wo strongly suspect that it
will not be found reliable as an expression of public opinion. But
perhaps we are mistaken, and, if so,
we have thought more highly of
tho people of Maple Itidge than
the facts would justify.

Public Opinion.
A correspondent at Fort Hammond asks by what authority tho
license court at Maple Ridge rejected an application for a liquor
license which was hacked up by a
petition bearing the names of 81
residents of the municipality, and
declared that public opinion could
not   bo considered in the matter.
There  is  nothing to prevent the
Maple Ridge court from granting
or rejecting licenses according to its
own judgment.   The act provides
that public opinion may be heard,
but does not say that it must be
heeded.     Under ordinary circumstances we are of opinion that in
such matters as theso an intelligent
expression of public opinion ought
to Mceive the greatest consideration.
The  lionise   court is supposed to
represent the people, antl its duty
ought to be to carry out the wishes
of the majority.   The Surrey license
court granted a licenso at Mud Buy
contrary to the wish of the settlement, and now it seems that the
Maple Ridge court   has   taken a
course exactly the opposite.   Tliere
mny be circumstances of whicli we
have not been informed that would
materially modify the case, but if
such circumstances do not exist we
are bound in honesty to say that
the action of the Maple Ridge license court i« not in accord with
tlie free institutions under whioh
we live.   It is a well known fact
that petitions  do  not  sometimes
roprosent fairly the popular will. It
may be that the members of the
license court were aware that the
petition piwented by Mr. Levi wai
one of this kind s and if they knew
it they were justified in rejecting it.
Thore havo been petitions gotten
up in Maple Bldge Hiking for a certain thing and petitions asking the
veiy oppo-Ue, and on both petitions

The Surrey Mill.-A vote wai
taken last Saturday on tho question of
granting a.bonus from the municipality
of Surrey to a Bteam flour and oatmeal
mill. The vote polled was very smalt.
It was as follows: For the bonus, 26;
against, 11; majority, 16. We understand that all the municipalities have
asked the government to amend the
municipal act in such a way aa to enable them to grant bonuses outside of
the municipal limits. If thia amendment is made the municipalities will
then bo nsked for bonuses towards the
construction of this mill, and we believe in several instances at least the
bonuses will be voted.

A Strange Suggestion.— a correspondent who professes to desire the
advancement of temperance principles
lunula tho following proposal which we
publish as a kind of curiosity; "The
best cure for whiskey salooni would
bo for thc government to establish one
in every town. It ihould have every
comfort attached, with a lookup alongside; lot the liquor be sold here at
cost price, and outside salooni would
not be able to compete; besides, aa
only the purest and best liquors would
bo sold, overy person would patronize
the government saloon, and all other
saloons would have to close for want
of custom." The result predicted by
our correspondent would very likely
come about, but possibly tho government saloon conducted under such circumstances would make more drunkards than all the rest could make.
B. 0. Rifles.--Tho Canadian Militia Gazette ui February 16th, aays:
Tho British Oolumbia Rifle Association are talking seriously of sending
a team to tho next Dominion meeting,
and wo trust they may bo enabled to
carry out their very laudable intention.
With tho C. P. R. completod it will
bo a much less serious undertaking
than formerly, and wo believe the
company would consider it in their
own interests to givo them very low
faros, if they cuuld not even extend
freo passes to them, as always hna beon
donu to tho marititime provinco teams
in traveling ovor govornment railways.
Lot the oflicers of our Pacific provinco association sut thu accomplishment,of this trip before themselves ns
their chief aim for the current yoar,
aud we will guarantee thoir representatives the warmest possible welcome
—a welcome and a reception that will
for ever bind together tho riflemen
from the extremities of the Dominien
iu a bond of auch goud fellowship as
-only accompanies riflo shooting. In
working out this scheme Iho British
Oolumbia association, wo are convinced,
may count upon tho warmest support
of Sir Adolplie Caron, Sir Frederick
Middleton, the militia department,
the Dominion Association, and the
individual riflemen of this part of
Canada.

Chinese Robbers. — n Saturday
aftornoon Mr. Moresby, governor uf
tho gaol, received a despatch from
Hopo stating that au attempt at murder had been made there by three
Chinamen, and that tho miscreants
wore believed to have gono down the
railway track. It seems that the three
celestials camo into Mr. Hunter's
store, a few miles below Hope, on Friday evening aud asked for beef. Mr.
Hunter's daughter, Mrs. Bulger, went
to the storeroom for the beef, accompanied by two of the Ohinamen, the
other remaining in the ahop with Mr.
Hunter who was putting up some
crackers for him. While Mrs. Bulger
was in the act of getting the beef, the
two mon attacked her with a knife or
aome other sharp instrument, cutting
her on the hands and face. She
shouted to her father, who hurried to
her holp. The two men then ran into
tho shop, and in tho absence of Mr.
Hunter the throe began helping themselves to anything that camo to hand-
Presently Mr. Hunter came back to
the shop, when one of the Ohinamen
pointed a pistul at him, but it did not
go oft', Mr. Hunter rushed lo his
room, got a gun, and fired at the retreating robbers, but did not know
whether tho thot took effect or not.
Tho men weru bolioved to hare crossed
tho rivor. Constable Wise, of Yale,
was notified, as well as oflicer Moresby, who went up the track on Sunday
afternoon. On Monday 3 Ohinamen
got on board tho str. Reliance at Sumas, bound fur this city. At Maple
Ridge the iteamor was boarded by
ollicer Moresby and Constable Wilson,
who found the'three men answering
to tho description telegraphed, and
arrested them. One of the Ohinamen when charged with the offence,
got very. red in the face, and not one
of the threo would own hia baggage.
Thuy weru brought to gaol and remanded 8 days for hearing. We are
glad to liuu'ii that Mm. Bulger's wounds
aro not dangerous,

fCorrespondence of the Cnln'mbltwU
Hev. Mr. Watson preached twice
here on Sunday in behalf of tbu Methodist missionary society, Tho weather
was vory unfavorable, but the attendance on each occasion was good. The
Sabbath-school and Band of'ilopu are
prospering. The entertainment given
by the Band of Hope on Friday ovening was a success. Mr. Watson arrived
just as the last chorus was being sung
and addressed the audience in his usual
practical and happy manner. Your
correspondent is of tho opinion that
the youth of Maple Ridge hold sounder
views on the temperance question than,
the majority of tho older people. The
idea that 80 could be found hero to
sign a petition in favor of granting a
license to a whisky houso is almost incredible. An amusing incident in connection with this petition is that a majority of tho signers profess to be
opposed to the granting of a licenso,
and signed tho petition merely to please
the applicant, being fully confident
that tho magistrates would not grant
its prayer.
Rapid Work.—"For two years I was

Hope, Mar. 20.— This little town
ia pretty lively just now. During the
past week a large number of meu havu
gone to Granite Creok over the Hope
trail, which ia iu good shape for travelling with a light pack. Several persona have lately arrived hero from the
mines in 2h days, Sullivan's pack
train of 18 horses has been making
trips every other day to the 14-mile
house for aome time. It iB expected
that ateps will bo taken to open the
Hope trail at once. About §000 has
been subscribed already for this purpose, and it is thought the government
will lend a helping hand. If bo, the
Hope-Similkameen trail will bo the
nearest and cheapest for miners nnd
merchants to get their goods shipped
to Granite Oreek. Mr. J. O. Henderson is building a large storehouse here,
and there is a new blacksmith shop
opened, the ring of whose anvil is a
welcome sound, The stores and hotels
are doing a good business, nnd the
sawmill, which has for some time boen
idle, is being repaired nnd will bo running on Monday. This will add to
the hum of busy life which begins to
manifest itself abuut the once famous
town of Hope.

Mount Lehman, Mar. 22.—-Last
week we hod a visit from about 5
inches of snow (something quite unexpected) which ended iu rain and terribly muddy roads. It looks as if we
wero going to have a late spritis after
all. This will bo disappointing to
many new Bottlers who expected to get
considerable clearing dono thia season
in time for crop. There are now 48
settlers in Mount Lehman, of whom
33 aro bachelors. What other settlement in tho district can boast of so
much single bloast-dness aa this, iu pro*
iiortion to tho number of residents?
fit. P. Anderson and tho Lehman
Bros, have added aonsiderably to tho
improvement of tho place lately by the
erection of two line residences. Who
knows but they intend reducing the
number down to 301 Some ono in this
vicinity seems to have a mania for
house stealing. One of our neighbors
had hii houso pulled down last week,
put into a boat or eauoo, and carried
off. This ia poor encouragement for a
person on tho eve of a big undertaking. Lumber must have taken a decided "raise." I believo that the
Mainland Guardian, in gleaning a little
news from ita solitary subscriber in
Mount Lehman, lately stated that Mr.
Swett was making great improvements
in our settlement iu the way of cutting cordwood and clearing his farm.
A. H., would it not be better for you
to speak of your neighbors more respectfully, and not apply nick names
to them! The authorship of the correspondence did not drop on the shoulders
whero it waa intended. There is aome
talk of trying to form a Presbyterian
congregation and Sunday school in this
settlement. The majority of tho people are Presbyterians, and there is a
general wish that something should bu
dono to provide regular religious services and instruction. Several persons
in this settlement propose to visit
Granite Oreek mines this summer.
The poople of Alder Grovo are making

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
{Krom First Page.)
Hon. Mr. -Daviu said that if Iho
govornmont made a manifestly extravagant grant would they not be punisliod
by the house? Thu last i-poakcr evidently was of opinion that no govornmont ahoiilil have the power of making any freo grunt whatever. Would
the honorablo gentleman say that thu
partially freo grant of land to Ihe
Kootenay reclamation company waa
not In tho interest of the country? and
bofore dealing tinslly with the matter
had it not heen aubmitted to tho homo
which had to trust tho government fnr
the administration of the connlrya
affairs? The principle embodied iu
the honorable gentleman's resolution
was that the house ahould not only
govern tho country in genoral but that
month after inbntn it should administer ita management iu dutail. If the
clause, which was an old one und hud
novor been abused, wis repealed, it
would place it boyond tho power of a
government nf tho provinco to responsibly encourage any scheme for tho
establishment of colonies of settlers
who might be induced to come from
abroad.
Hon. Mr. Robson said the cry that
thu govemment should bo relieved
from responsibility was a pretext that
would havo been ridiculed if it bad
oome from the government itself, Waa
thc governmont to have no discretionary powor at all? Tho power under
this clause had never been abused, and
had scarcely ever beon utilized, though
in one instance a partially free grant
of some 0,000 acres on the delta of
tho Lower Fraser bad been made,
which boing nedrly entirely covered
with water all tho year round, the
govornment, after causing full inquiry,
had agreed that if reclaimed it should
bo granted at tho rate of §1 an acre
instead of §2 50 an aero. As a consequence tho eoinpany had already expended §10,000 on tho scheme, and
boforo its completion tho outlay would
amount to some 840,000, and as a result tho land would not only bo productive but also a source of revenue to
tho country. With regard to applications from abroad, he might mon
tion a proposition (hal had been Hindi
on behalf of a number of Newfound'
land fishermen to send them out to
develop the immense sea farm of food
fishes of tliia province, To this an
answer had beon mado that tho provincial government woro willing to
mako a free grant of 1,000 aeres of
land-in) some part of our coast, to a
colony of not leas than forty families,
and a proportionately increased area
for ,a larger number of families. It
had buen added that there was reason
to believe that either on Queen Charlotto Islands or on tho west coast of
Vancouver Island there woro" most
desirable locations for people of such
a calling, and that tho government
would be prepured (o afford any
reasonable assistance in selecting a desirable location, He just mentioned
this ns nn instance to show tho necessity cf the government having power
to decide on such a propodtion. Small
colonization schemes of thia kind
which would civilize tho went oyast of
our island, so to speak, and sotfclu tbu
numerous spots so favorable for the
establishment of hamlots of hardy
fishermen would be boyond tho discretion of tho government by tlie retrogressive slop proposed. When tho
power tlie clause gave had been abused
by the governmont it would be time
enough to take suoh an amendment as
that put forward for consideration.
The honorablo the loader of the opposition had made n mistake which (Air,
Robson thought) ho vory often made,
and that waa binding nnd tying and
dwarfing iu a picayuuish way, endeavoring to inculcate a circumscribing
principle simply to relieve tho govern
ment uf a certain responsibility. Ilo
would cry shame upon any governmont that.would seok lo shirk any
responsibility which it was its duty to
nssume in advancing the interests of
the wholo country.
Mr. Semlin would like tu see tlio
fisheries of tho province encouraged,
but whs not in favor of tho government being allowed discretion in tlio
direction of making free or partially
freo grants of land.
Mr. Pooley opposed tho amendment,
having heard uo ground yot why the
alteration should be made. Tho ojatiao
was incorporated in the land act of
1870, The section was afterwards repealed, but when thu leader of the opposition was in office tho ulauao was
again introduced and Imd remained
tho law of the province up to thu present time. If only vested witli » subjective powor it would bo almost im*
possible for the Roverilintlit to deal
with any proposition for establishment
of colohios of settlers. The amendment was one tliat could not he coin-
mended to thu consideration of the
house. The amendment was thou put,
and lost; Messrs, Beaven, Galbraith,
Orr, Semlin, Grant, Helgesen nnd Mc*
LtH'so voting in tbo negative. The report was adopted, and llio bill read a
third time and passed.
Hon. Mr. Smitho -moved Iheseciind
rending of tho Timber aet amendment
bill. Tho honorable mover said thoro
woro two objects to be gained by tho
act—tlie lirst ivas to meet lhe suggestions of the honorable member for
Esquimalt, Mr. Helgesen, in reference
to Chineso cutting hemlock bark, and
tho aecond to facilitate tlio granting uf
hand-logging licenses. Indiana at
presont out logs without licenses, and
it was difficult to make them understand that they could only cut within
limited areas, It was now the object
to issuo licenses to hand-loggers to cut
timber on any vacant proporty, so that
one could cut beside another if they
held a licence, Tho amendment would
aecuro tho payment of provincial timber duos. Mr. Helgc-si-n congratulated
the chief commissioner on bringing in
the bill. Mr, Beavon said ho would
not opposu the bill if it merely covorod
the ground outlined by the chief commissioner.

An Important Decision,
HENDEKSQH VS. TURNER & CO.
MoORElOnf, J.
This ia an interpleader issue iu the
Comity Court of Now Westminster,
holdou at New Westiniuster, in which
the Defendants are execution creditors of
Uriah Nelson mul the Plaintiff is claimant of the same guods under an assignment or transfer from Uriah Nelson on
tlie Ist September, A. I>. I8S5. Tiie
Sheriff seized the goods in Henderson's
stmr at Cldlliwliacit at tho Instance of

00. Letter and Henderson, both general
traders (the former in Victoria, the latter
at ('lillliwliack), met on tbe steamer nl
ChilHwhntilt on Iheir way to Ynle, on
Saturday the 'JIHh ol August: the former
appears to havo bent going there on one
of bis usual trips which bo was In the
habit of taking every four or six weeks
mid Henderson wai un his way to Kit-;!*'
1'ass whither lio continued his journey
after comploting the purchase and transfer of the goods 111 munition from Uriah
Nolsou and the loading of the same ou
tlio Adelaide lo lio carried to Chilli-
wha'-'k, Lofser and Henderson foraomo
time previous had mutual  trading to
gether, the former supplying the latter
with goods from Victoria and the latter
remitting to Lcisor grain, cheese, ko.,
from Chilliwhack, It will he proper to
state with Some minuteness the negotiations which led to the sale from Uriah
Nelson to Henderson, the evidence and
my finding thereon. Henderson's ovi
deuce, Leisei-'s evidence, Batchelor'B evi
dence, Brigg's evidence, Major's evidence, Insley a evidence. This evidence
shows that Uriah Nelson, owing Mender-
sonSIBIS.00 uud Leiser £1095, gave goods
to Henderson to the.aggregate amount ond
tliat Henderson, instead of paying U.Nelson .-J1905.00, gave notes with his consent
to Leiser ior that amount, with tho understanding tbat Leiser should take payment from Henderson in produce from
Chilliwhack. This transaction is what
judges have termed a triangular agreement. When Henderson says that
"Uriah Nelson proposed to rae to buy
out the stock rather than sell there or
than pack up tbe country and I asked
liim what he would sell for; he said
eighty-five per cent on first cost, This
was at 12 o'clock on Monday and I said
I would Rec after lunch." I do not construe tbis as n eessarily evincing a do-
sire on the part of Uriah Nelson to prefer Honderson as regards the debt of
$1185,00. The oiler was natural on.the
part of Uriah Nelson as Henderson says
"tbat in February he was negotiating
for purchase of Uriah Nelson's stock at
Yale, It was not then convenient to
buy; I was not in funds." Again, there
aro several circumstances apparent from
tlio evidence tending to negative any
such intention with regard to Henderson, for it seems that Uriah Nelson had
met Henderson about a week or ten days
previously at Chilliwhack when on his
way to Victoria and that ho then said he
Ifact $14000.00 with hi ii, that Henderson
asked him to meet one of his (Henderson's) notes for $'200.00 at Garescho's
(which it seems Uriah Nelson did), adding that if U. Nelson could spare more
to placo it to Henderson's credit, and
that U. Nelson declined as he had several other accounts to meet.
Moreover, U. Nelson seems to have
been equally indifferent us to shewing
any preference for Leiser. Leiser says:
"He (Uriah Nelson) has not exactly beon
a. good payer. He always bought more
goods than be paid for. Again, "Nelson traveled up with me from Victoria"
(it seems they separated at New Westminster, Leiser taking the steamer)* and
he adds, "Possibly I might have asked
liim for money; I suppose I dunned him
every time; I think he paid me money
in Victoria."
Again, U. Nelson W8B determined to
go on up country and did go by the Tuesday's train. The nrrival of Henderson
and Leiser seems to have been unexpected by bim and their own meeting at
Chilliwhack accidental, as well as tlieir
journey together, and I gather from the
evidence that neither he or they had
previously contemplated the purchase
upon that occasion at all events. Again,
Henderson says: "Leiser aud I had conversation about V. Nelson's affairs; I
said U. Nelson waa vory, very slow pay."
Again, Leiser used expression "slow
pay" at lunch on the lst September—
"In fact we all knew he was slow pay,"
It seems material to observe that the
actual sule as it waa completed, and its
validity is the sole question, was the result of much pressure on the part of Leiser, stall events upon Uriah Nelson. U.
Nelson said to Leiser: "I owe hiin (Henderson) $1200,00 or §1300.00 and I'll take
for the balance notes payable some timo
in January," nnd when Leiser Baid, "You
owe tne some money; can't I make a
turn with you for amount you owe me
with Henderson, for I shall want grain,
ko;, tbis summer and I'll take that from
Henderson," U. Nelson declined to give
Leiser more than S700.00 or $800.00, ('. 6.
out of tho 8*2040 00 due to Leiser.
lAirtber conversation then takes place
between Henderson and Leiser and they
then ask U. Ncl-ion again to complete ia
the way tbey wished and be again says
he will only lot Leiser have $700.00 or
SS00.00 nnd that he wanted the balance
in notes. Leiser then says that he spoke
to him .i good deal, that Henderson
would give 1dm (Leiser) grain, which he
needed, and "after considerable talking,"
U. Nelson accepted Leiser'B draft for
§1003.00 in favor of Henderson and Leiser took ,'t notes from Henderson for
Sfitlo.00 each. It is not immaterial to
observe that contemporaneously with
the completion of the salo Leiser takes
an order front U. Nelson for $350.00 or
$100.09 worth of gooth to be forwarded
by Leiser from Victoria and that Henderson offered cheese for Clinton, It seems
that U. Nelson's failure alone prevented
Leiser from performing his promise: compare ex parte Topham, L. R. 8, Chan.
(120 and &21, where tho refusal to deliver
goods under similar circumstances by
tlio creditor lo tbe debtor was relied on
by thc trustee in bankruptcy but without
effect in the opinion of the lord justices.
Ilut it may be proper again to advert to
U. Nelson's proposal to Henderson to
buy eut tlm Yale stock. Now if the
transaction had been carried out in the
way U. Nelson wished, that is 911.15.00
of thc purchase money to go as against
Henderson's debt and the remainder in
notes .given by Henderson to U. Nelson
(I assume Henderson's notes to be good
and negotiable), thc case would have
fallen within Unmix v. Buxton. L. It.
0, C. P., see especially per Willes, J., at
p. 111-114; and would not have been an
uct of bankruptcy; moreover, in that
caso the bankrupt had conveyed all his
property whilst here V, Nelson was only
selling his Yale stock.
The execution creditor must then contend that the payment of $l,00.i in notes
by Henderson fo Leiser is of no avail as
a payment to U. Nelson, though at his
request. In this reHjioct, however,
I think tlie execution creditor's position
is not stronger tban if Henderson had
made the tlirec notes to U. Nelson fur
the expressed or understood purposo of
the latter handing them over to Leiser
aud they bad been then Indorsed accordingly to bim; even if this had been done,
and even supposing if that had h-iun a preferential payment mi the part of U. Nelson
to Leiser, I think it would have been fully
warranted bv the case uf ex parte tittib-
bins t,. 11. "17 Oh. D.-O.A BS, 09. I
have already intimated niy (.pinion that
"preference of Leiser was certainly not
tho Substantial, effectual or ilomi unt intent of U. Nelson and that the transaction was the result of pressure mainly at
all events, "Bx parte Hill 23 Ch. D< WW
A. 701,703 k 705," and I shall deal
with the law ou this point presently;
but on ao omit of tbo importance of hx
purle Stubbing as an afnrtiore case, as It
appears to ino, I shall make some further
i-rcnce to it.   Th.it case seems to have
lidnt in a considered judgment of the
C, A. that nn actual snle of goods for
ley, the vendor intending to use ths
puri-liMi-i money in making a voluntary
ijjyme.it, and the purchaser knowing of
that intention, is not a fraudulent transfer within sue, (> subsec. 2 of tho Bank-
i-.iiit y Act A. D. II'J, .fames L. .!., who
Ielivcr**d thc judgment, said in tho
L-'Hirst* of the argument: "Suppose A
sells gooda tb 11 with the intention known
to 11 tbat tbo purchase money shall bu
mployod in preferring O, has such a
ransnctlou ever been held to bo a fraud
lent limn-for?'' An answer waa
(tempted, but without effect. "In
principle it must be so; both parties
would bo conspiring to provide a fund to
ho used for tlm purpose of defeating the
bankruptcy law." It is true that the
langtiago of 43 Vic. Oh. 10 of the Prov-
Inat) differs In some respects from the
snid bankruptcy act, but it was passed at
the time nud iu view of the repeal of
the Insolvency Aot of A. I). 187fl, and I
ean hardly believe that the local legislature intended to show moro regard for
an  ntocution creditor, who sometimes
([(■■ts his judgment by preference and even
iv collusion, than tno Knglish legislature
displays towards a trustee for all tho
creditor-'. However, this not, upon
the construction of which the caso realty
depends, will be examined presently,
Further, I think the position of both
Henderson and Leiser may be supported
by the doctrine of "pressure." That
Leiser did his best to get payment is
obvious, and I ■ think Henderson was
equally anxious to buy the stock and get
paid his debt, especially when be found
no could meet the balance of $1,0-'o in
the convenient way of remittances of
produce from Chilliwhack to Leiser.
The interchange of opinions as to U,
Nelson being slow pay evidently impressed both, and U. Nelson seems to
have yielded with reluctance. I think
he chiefly consulted his own convenience
that he did not wish to be at the trouble
of carrying, his goods to Cliuton. He
had evidently been trying in vain to
realize at Yale (sec Batohelors evidence),
nor should we forget the offers of further credit by Henderson and Leiser. In
Brown v. Kempton, an action by assignees of a bankrupt to recover a payment made to a creditor, 19 L. J, C. P.
169, the judge had told tho jury "that if
tho bankrupts were induced to make the
payment by the pressure of tlio defendant (the creditor) the verdict sbould be
for the defendant; secondly, tbat if they
were not influenced by thc pressure, but
acted voluntarily and with a view to
give a preference iu the eveut of a bankruptcy, the verdict Bhould be for the
plaintiffs (the assignees); and, thirdly,
that if the payment was mado under the
influence of the pressure of the defendant, and also with a desire to give a
preference to the defendant in the event
of bankruptcy, the verdict should be for
tho defendant." The court of exchequer
chamber held the direction to be right.
Parke 11. delivering the judgment says:
"A payment is voluntary when it originates from tbo bankrupt himself, but if a
creditor demands payment (Mogg v.
Baker 4, M. k Vf. 348) shows that pressure is not necessary on his part to take
it out of the class of voluntary pay*
inlmts," and he then proceeds to approve
of the learned judge's direction wliere,
thirdly, the payment may have beeu
made with the mixed motive of the influence of pressure and desire to prefer,
I may say here 1 doubt whether U. Nelson had any such desire. Mr. Justice
Grompton, in Edwards v. Glyn, 28 L. J.
O. B. p. 350, call this a case of the greatest authority.
These decisions were before the Bankruptcy Aot 1809 but the lord justices
said in Ex parte Tempest 0 Ch. app. pp.
75 k 70, that that act made no difference,
and' decided that ease principally on the
above two cases of Brown v. Kempton
and Edwards v. Glyn above quoted, and
see Ex parte Topham 8 Ch. app. 010, 120
k 621, and ex parte Bollard 7 Ch. app. 24.
The locaL.act, 43 Vic Ch. 10, is of
course that on which the execution creditor relies. It is a transcript of the revised statutes of Ontario, Ch. US, which,
or the substance of wnich, has beeu in
forco in Ontario for nearly 30 years and
has given rise to many decisions which
seem to show, if I may use Dr. Lushing-
ton's expression in 2 Admiralty, 2 Ecclesiastical Reports, p. 321, "different
schools of thought or opinion."
One of the most important is a doctrine which seems first to have been
enunciated by Patterson and Morrison,
judges of appeal, in Brayley v. Ellis, 9
app. 587, that the doctrine of pressure
is inapplicable to the statute. The two
other judges did not agree iu this view,
see pp. 570 k 577, ahd pointed out that
the case of ex parte Griffiths', 23 Ch. U.
59, and ex parte Bird 23 Ch. I). 695, both
in the C. A., upon which Patterson aud
Morrison, justices, founded, as it seems
their views were decided on, their particular facts, and the G, J, of O. at p. 570
of 0 app. O., says of the former .caso
that "he doubts if such a transaction
would ever have been supported on the
ground of pressure under any interpretation of auy bankruptcy or insolvency
law." In the latter case two of the
lord justices apply the language "sham"
and "farce" to the transaction. N*o
doubt there aro expressions iu the
judgments of thc lord justices that
look a little like signs of "tho tide
again changing iu matters of bankruptcy," to use the expressions of Erie
and Grompton, justices, in 28 L. J. Q.
B. 358, Edwards v. Glyn, beforo
quoted, but thc present master of the
rolls, from what ho says in 24 Ch. D.
343, ox parte Holder, evidently thinks
no change has been made, nud as said
by Ostler J. A. in Long v. Hancock, 12
app. O., these cases cannot be looked
upon as laying down any new rule on
the subject, If they do tbey aro not
consistent with former cases in tho court
of appeal the 11. L. and the J. C. An
interesting account is given of the origin
of the doctrine of pressure in Bells v.
Smith, 34 L. J. Q, B. pp. 70 & 71, which
makes it improbable that the doctrine
of Brown v. Kempton before referred
to will over be seriously departed from.
Farther, I cannot find that this view of
Patterson and Morrison, J, A., is adopted bv any other judge. It is disclaimed
by Prondfoot and Ferguson, justices,
and Ostler, J. A., in a judgment in tho
divisional court in a case of Slater v,
Oliver, 7 G. R. pp. 161 k 166, delivered
by tha last judge, which, if I may say
so, seeitu quite satisfactory. The latter
judge, J, app., again repeats his views
in dug v. Hancock, 12 app. O., see pp.
153 k 150:. Even Mr. Justice Patterson,
whilst nondirectlysiirrendering his former
view, seems indirectly to recognize the
doctrine of pressure as applicable to the
Aot, by holding iu the same case, at p.
151 that the circumstance that the company wanted a further opportunity to
prosecute their business by securing the
debt aud thereby to relieve themselves
from molestation on its account, was
Butlicient to warrant the giving of a bill
of sale by them to the creditor. If this
motive was siitlicient to negative intent
to prefer, surely pressure must be equally
efficacious, The other judges certainly
said nothing In opposition to thia vio\v,
and this case was decided by thc So-
promo Court of Canada, 22 L. J., Can.
p. 16, on appeal to that court, mi the
ground that as thc company bona fide
helievid tlint hy getting an 'extension of
time from the appellants they would.-bo
able to continue tlieir business, it (the
bill of side) could not have beeu
given, with a \\uw of preferring the
creditors and of defrauding the other-'.
In McCrae v. White, 9 Sup. Ct. of Cau
Strong, (Jwynne Justices reflected on
Davidson v. Ross, 24 Chan. O, 22, because of the views expressed in that case
as to the doctriue of "pressure" in a way
tbat seems to shew that tlicy at least
would bold that doctrine applicable and
important in cases arising on the local
act. C. J. Wilson at somo length in
Ivoy v. Knox, 8 Ont. R„ p. 647, maintains tho same view, aud I will only add
that if Lord Gavin's remark in Butcher
. Stent, h, R. 7, 11. L. 840, that the use
of tbe word '■preference,'- implying an
act of free will, would of itself make it
necessary to consider whether "pressure"
had not been used (aud this appears to
have boon the opinion of the lord justices in ex parte Topham), bad
been presented to the court we should
not, I think, have hend of the doctrine
of Patterson and Morrison, Justices of
Appeal in Brayley v, Ellis. I think the
cases referred to require me to decide in
favor of the claimant. But there is another ground upun which, as it seems to
mc, I should also feel called upon to decide in favor of tiie claimant, and as interpleader cases liko the present are of
frequent occurrence I bad bettor say a
few words about it. Tho second sec. of
43 Vic, chap. 10, makes tho gift, conveyance, ftc, with intent, kc, null and
void, as against thr creditors qf such person, Reading the words according to
tho ordinary rules of construction the
oonvoyanoe will be void as against the
creditors generally, and will be voidable
by them in an action by ono of their
number on bis own behalf and that of
the others. Hoe Order 16, R. 9, Deltarfi
v. Stevenson, I. Q. B, 1). 313; not othorwiso; and an actiou brought by ono ou
his own behalf alone would bo Improper,
si in effect purporting to strike from tho
act the word creditors and substitute
somo provision liko that in the Bills of
Sales act, 1870, "as against all sheriffs,
oflicers and other persons -seizing nny
property or effects, ke., kc., in the execution of any process and against every
person on whose behalf such process
sli.Jl havo beon issued, be null and void."
It is doubtful whether this might be
doue even to avoid an absurdity, but
perusal of tlio aet 43 Vic, cap. 10, and
regard to the occasion on which it was
passed, namely the repeal of the Insolvent act of 1875, points to the interests
of the general body of creditors boing
considered and not to the sweeping away
of perhaps thc entire assets for the benefit of one execution creditor. The statute of 13 Elizabeth, cap. 5, was then in
force, under which it was .held that u
conveyance was not fraudulent and void
merely because mado with the iutontion
to defeat the expected execution of a
judgment creditor (Wood v. Pixie, 7 Q.,
B. 392; Darvillo v. Lerry, 6 Harlston,
Norman s. 10; Alton v. Harrison, 4
chap.) The first two of these cases aro
recognised as law lu Uulglisb v. McCarthy, 19 ch. Ont., p. 585-586. If the
legislature had wished to alter this state
of tbe law they would have used appropriate language, not that which tbey
have actually adopted and which as well
as the occasion ou which the act was
passed point to the benefit of the general
body of creditors only.

Boyc-Jttinjj is a terrible weapon. A
young man in Greetifsborough, Ga.,
had won tlio atl'ectiona of a oigar dealer's daughter, but the father forbade

Tho general verdict of the smokers of
Canada is that "Myrtle Navy" is the
finost tobacco they have ever used.
Tliere can be no mistake upon this point
for it is proved by this tangible evidence.
Tlie large demand for this tobacco shows
it to be true, and the character of tho
demand givcB further proof. It has never boon of the spasmodic kind, up one
montli and down the next. It has lieen
a sustained and constantly increasing demand, The unsurpassed quality of tho
tobacco accounts for tlm.
A Complbtk Breakdown.—"For ten
years," says Jennie M. Harrott, of \Val-
lacehurg, Ont., "I did not see a well day
—was all broken down with dyspepsia,
liver complaint, catarsh and debility,
Threo doctors abandoned hope for me,
when Burdook Blood Bitters came to ray
rescue, It is the best medicine I have
ever taken. I say this for the benefit of
all suffering as I did."
The statement is mado tlmt nil the
varied machinery of Great Britain,
now operated by steam-power, is capable of performing more work, and
henco of creating more products than
could be produced by the labor of 400,-
000,000 able-bodied men on the earth.'
Will Take Oath to the Fact.—Edward Cousins, of Hanson, declares he
■was once nearly dead from the effects
of a terrible cold and cough. He tried

adds that he is willing to take oath to
his statements.

Blake and Mackenzie*
|   The following pen picture of  tho
fl>resent and ex-leador of the Liberals
flit Ottawa is from u correspondent who
waa present at the recent opening of
parliament:  Mr. Blake, looking not
exactly "the picture of health," but at
ileaat somewhat better than ho usually
does, sat low in his seat, absorbed in
'thought, doubt loss   laying plans for
>directing  the campaign,   Mr. Blake
never was remarkably cordial in his
' i appearance, and he wore  his most
frigid atr.   Ho looked like a man worried and perplexed mentally, almost
boyond the point of endurance.   Noxt
jto him, with a vacant chair botween
them, sat another man, but nitont from
other cauaos.   He, who aftor fulling
[from hts high estate, remains! at the
■scene <A his former triumphs, only to
see others holding the position which
he once occupied is very apt to have
' for his companions Borrowful thoughts.
And so Mr. Mackenzie, who ten short
years ago was the leader of the house
, of commons, and  a  match for tho
' ablest men in public lifo, sat iu his
seat, quiet  and  reserved,   doubtless
, thinking of othor openings in the daya
; of his power aud glory.   His ill-health
lias Ions incapacitated him; he is but
the wreck of his former self; nnd so ho
sits thero session in and session out, a
■warning to politicians not to bo too
honest    or hard-working.    Ho  wna
honest nnd hard-working and as a result of it all his party was kicked out
' of otlice, his health was broken, and
\ he himself was fired from the leadership of tho party ho had once led to
victory. ^^^^^^^^^^^
The Scott Act.
Ottawa, March 4.—The annual
meeting of the Dominion Alliance began this morning in the council chamber of the oity hall. Senator Vidnl,
present, occupied the chair, and opened the meeting with a brief address.
The executive committee's report spoko
in terms of thankfulness to Providence
|. for the large measure cf success bo-
stowed upon tho temperance cause during the past year, and it roforred to
the rapid growth of the tompenmee
sentiment throughout the country, as
seen in the number of Scott Act victories achieved during the year. Since
the victory in Carleton county, the
act was submitted to the popular vote
| in 33 counties and cities, in 16 of which
it was adopted, and .gonerally by overwhelming majorities. Thc total plurality in theae amounted to 17,151
rotes, while in the other nine contests
in which the verdict was adverse, thc
. plurality wus 3,019. Tho reported
majority in favor of the act throughout
' the Dominion was now 50,000, tho
. proportion of the rate cast being about
60 per cent, for, and 40 againBt. The
defeats were chiefly met with in the
counties of eastern Ontario and Quebec.
The report expressed the hope that
the action of tho Archbishop of Quebec
and many of his clergy ou the question
of prohibition would shortly lend to a
very different result.    In no single
j instance had the act beon repealed,
' the unanimous verdict from all Scott
Act counties being that drunkenness,
rowdyism, and treating were greatly
diminished. The recent deuision of
the privy council and supreme court
in regard to the validity of thu McCarthy Act had in. w cleared tho way
for further and m**re vigorous efforts
in the direction of prohibition. The
Ontario legislature had announced
their intention of enforcing tho uct,
and tho appointment of public magistrates, it was hoped, would soon follow.
The olectiou of a tomperanco candidate os chtef imigistralo of Toronto
was another significant Mgn of advancement. Tho abuse of tho permit system in the North-West would, it was
hoped, bo stopped, attention having
been called to it.
Was It Dynamite?
Nkw Youk, March 17.—-The failure
to find any trace of the schooner which
was reported to hare collided with the
Oregon, is not regarded by many pea-
pie as strange. It is the very general
impression of people in a position to
know that there was no collision, but
that the accident was the result of an
entirely different cause than that given
by the very reticent officers of the lost
steamer. The testimony of all the
passengers jb to the effect tb-:'} just before the sinking there waB u terrible
noise resembling the noise following
the discharge of a piece of artillery,
and that a very large portion of the
end of the steamer where the schooner
was laid to have struck, was knocked
out. The mysterious manner of the
officers of the Oregon, and the extreme reticence of the passengers, together with the reported explosive
noise, .and the great damage done to
the steamer, has given rise to the rumor that the disaster was caused by a
torpedo or dynamite, concealed in the
vessel and placed thore to do much
more deadly work than the sinking of
, the vessel. The Herald has an editorial this morning on the mystery and
also a number of interviews with ma*
,  rino men, all of which support the
J dynamite theory,
i J      Postmaster Pearson states that by
,  the steamer Oregon, whioh sailed from
■ \ Liverpool on the Oth and Queenstown
.' bn the 7th inst,, there wore dispatched
■ 698 bags of mail. Of these about 113
j were closed bags of letter mail for tho
I  United States and Canada, the balanco
',' being made up of about 470 bags of
• 'j newspaper mail.   Of CO heavy regis-
' tered mails, estimated ns containing
[■'■ about 2400 letters and packages, de-
l spatched by tho Oregon, only a por-
■ tion of the French, Italian, Swedish
\ | and Russian mail, ninety-four pieces
t' in all) was received, the British and
V German registered mail being all lost,
i The British, German, Swiss, Swedish,
| Belgian, Portugese and Cane Town
I money order lists, from London, Ber-
f Iin, Basle, Malmo, Antwerp, Lisbon
and Cape Town respectively, and
French money order advices, were all
lost, the Italian only being saved.
Duplicate lists will bo called for immediately, and these will probably be at
onco forwarded.
Mr. Bollnk's Experiment.
Mr. Bolink owns and runs a cooper
•hop near the house of correction, and
ai he keeps a down men at work he is
bound to hare his shop run on *W
tem." The other day he waa reading
a newipaper article in regardi to the
pNftBtton-of conflagrations. Thear-
tide advised all employers to ay out a
regular programmo of what should be
done when a 6re waa discovered in the
shop, and drill their hands unti they
understood lt. He bought fifty foot of
hoee for the penstock, detailed a man
to nee it in oase of fire, and then in-
itructed eaoh other man and boy just
what they ahould do when an alarm
waa liven. One waa to roll out barreli-
atother to save tools, snother to throw
staves through a window, and each one
knew exactly what to jump for. This
was all right, and Mr. Bolink had a
good mind to cancel Iub insurance policies and depend on his local fire brigade. Boforo taking this stop, however, it occurred to him to givo his
programmo a trial. He had a little
curiosity to soo if hia employees would
spring to thoir posts according to instructions, und he studied out a plan,
Yesterday morning ho passed up-stairs,
kicked a pile of shavings together on
an old pioco of zinc, touched a match
to thom, and next minute ran down
stairs crying out, "The shop is on lire!
Firo! firo! fire!"
Tho man who was to use the hose
grabbed it up, threw it out of the window and junipod after it, shouting
"fire," "fire," "fire!" until he was
heard three blocks off. The man who
was to savo the tools throw an adze nud
hit Mr. Bolink in tho back, and theu
hit him again with a draw-shave. An
Mr. Bolink wns trying to savo himsolf
tho man appointed to look after the
ready-made work rolled live pork barrels over him, kicked iu the heads of
three more and then dug nut through
tlio back door. One man saved a pieco
ol board six foot long; another took
up a stave and broke two windows boforo ho lied; while a third throw a
hammer at the clock, uttored a wild
shriek and then kicked open tho sido
door. Iu two minutes tho shop was
clear of overy one but Mr. Bolink, and
he was crawling out from among the
barrels when Bteamer No. 6 camo galloping down. Tho smoko was rolling
up through tho roof, the boys wero
yelling "firo!" and tho tiromou woro
determined to Bave that coopershop or
perish in the attempt. Mr. Bolink
heard them calling out to "git them
hose around hyar," and to "play hor
up to oighty*tive,r' and he got to the
door and shouted :—
"Hold on gentlomen—thoro is no
(ire hero."
"Git oiit'n tho way!" cried the pipe-
nien, "yore's yer mineral water!"
"It's only a joke, gentlomen, there
is uo—" Mr. Bolink was shouting,
whon the stream af water lifted him
ovor the barrels and out of tho back
door, whoro he sat down on a broken
shave-horse until his cooper-shop had
been tilled with water, and the shavings hud burned out. During tho
afternoon yesterday his whole force
wero engaged in emptying barrels,
wringing out draw-shaves, hanging
broad-axes up to dry, and otherwise
getting the shop on a working basis.—

"Going to Marin."
Just at this timo there is a lively
competition among railroad ticket
agents to secure travel ovor thoir respective liues. Kates oast havo been
cut, travel has incroased in consequence, and each western road wants
to havo its full share.
Yesterday a portly, pleasant-looking
old gentleman came in on tlm train
from tho North, and started up Francis
street, carpet-sack iu hand. He was
evidently a farmer and probably belonged to the Grangers. At this precise juncture I*. M. Bum:, ticket agent
of tho St. Louis, Kansas oity and
Northorn Lino, happened to he glancing out of the window and saw the
traveller and his carpet-buy. He met
hiin half-way between Long Branch
and thc Pacific, and commenced as
follows:
"Going east, sir?''
"Yes," was the reply.
"Ah, ntop right up to tho Union
Ticket ofheo. Great through lino, sir.
Land you in New York sixteen hour-*
in advance of any other route. Finest
sleeping and dining cars in thc world.
Chickona threo times a day imd beds
free from vermin. Butter on two
plates aud molasses all over the table.
Come right along, sir."
Tho innocent country man walked
along a few stops, when Major J. B.
Laughlin, ticket agent of the Hannibal &St. Joseph Railroad, greeted him
aliectionately with:
"Going East, sir J"
"Yes," again.
"Glad to ineot you. Step right into
tho offico. Shortest line by thirty-
three and a half miles to New York;
put you in there nine milea ahead of
any other line. Finest eating houses
iu the world. Soup three times a day,
and fleas expelled from the sleepers
daily.   Come in, sir."
Before the astonished countryman
could recover from his bewilderment
at these sudden and unexpected manifestations of interest in his welfare,
Dan Mountain, of the Kansas City, St.
Joseph and Council Bluffs tackled him
with:
"Going East, sir."
"Yes," rather curtly.
"I'm just the man you want to ace.
Come along with me, Office right on
the corner. Best and shortest route
by a lontr shot to any point. Put you
through in a jiffy. Splendid BleeporB
and cold fish-balls for breakfast. Conductors all of pious and respectable
parentage, and fires kept up constantly.   Come along, sir."
Tho unfortunate man was completely
dumbfounded, and before ho could recover Latighlin had him by ono arm,
Mountain by the other, whilo Dunn
clung tightly to the coat-tail, and he
was hauled into the Hannibal and St.
Joo ofiiee, whore another parley took
place,
"What point arB you going to?'' was
asked by three disinterested individuals simultaneously.
"Goin' to Maria."
Instantly three railroad maps were
jerked out, and for fully 15 minutes
three pairs of eyes inspected them
closely. Then each of said pairs of
eyes looked at tho other, and finally
all centrod on the gentleman from the
rural districts. Then ono question
was asked by threo persons;
"Where iB Maria?"
"Where'H Maria* Why, I 'spose
she's tu hum. Maria's my wife, and
lives six milea east of town, and if I
didn't want to go to her whore the
 would 1 want to go?"
Three railroad mops wore put up
quicker than lightning, and in less
than two minutes time Dunn was
seated in his office consulting an abominable old pipe, Dan Mountain waa
busily engaged in admiring Lou Thompson's magnificent new four story plug
hat, and Maj. Latighlin was calmly
contemplating the prospective arrival
of the next atreet car.
The man bound for "Maria" left in
one of Fish & Hutchinson's sleighs.—

A largo hawk flew up tho othor day
iu tho vicinity of Merced, Cal., and it
was icon thut it had a shake in its
claws. Presently a skirmish took place
in the upper air, and the hawk fluttered and acted somewhat strangely.
It finally came to the ground with a
thud, resounding some distance. On
appreaohing and examining tho cause,
the snake was found coiled around tho
body of the bird tight enough to shut
its wind off. As neither of the combatants was a desirable citizen they
were left to -tight it out, and the snake
won.
