current Events nnd Opinions.
Home one hus been asking John
Bright whetlier England will return to protection, When America
returns to slavery is Bright's reply.
In England whnt did-, protection
menu ? It meant n heavy tax on
food. Cnu unyimdy imagine that
when food is heavily taxed the people are better fed 1 Protectionists
are always pointing tho finger of
warning at tho temporary depression of this or the other trade or
manufacture among thu numberless
trades and manufactures of Great
Britain. Would the sufferers he
better ofl" if evory loaf of bread
cost lliein half as much again as it
does 1 Would that give them higl
er power of production or a better
market for their goods 1 Tliere are
strikes occasionally in England,
Thero are just as many in the United States: you may see in an American paper tho announcement of
half-a-dozen in a row; and tlie
other day in ttie mining
country there was a strike wliich
assumed the gravity of a petty civil
war. Nothing can be more certain
than that the system of protection,
by the artificial stimulus which'it
gives, aggravates the fluctuations
from wliich industrial disturbances
arise. Tho distress and over-crowding in the low quarters of London
aro also cited as proofs of the fatal
eflects of free trade. In a city
with four millions of inhabitants
the amount of misery is sure to be
large, though it bears no proportion
to the amount of wealth and comfort. Accounts are every day coming to us of destitution in Paris
fully as sad as those of destitution
in London, though Paris does not
like London receive a continual inflow of poor Irish und refugee
Jews. Yet France is not a free
trade country. If the corn laws
were reinforced, which is what is
meant in tlie case of England by a
return to protection, rentals would
again be bloated just ns the gains of
manufacturers are bloated by protective duties on goods, and the
people Mould sink again into the
hunger and despondency which
were their lot hefore 1840,—The
Week.
We suspect the truth to be that
it is the variety of the excitements
offered by war which, when tho details are visible, so rapidly diffuses
interest in them through classes the
most diverse or far apart. Some,
perhaps the majority, are attracted
almost solely bythe dramatic effects
of a campaign. The sense of surprise which lies so deep in human
nature is constantly being evoked,
us it is evoked by nothing else. No
battle is ever quite certain, nor
was there ever a campaign iu which
it was not possible that individual
genius might create situations, or
cause catastrophes of the most entirely unexpected kind. History
itself seems modified when the old
army is beuton by tlie now one; and
when Napoleon crushes thn Aus-
trians, or Von Moltke crushes the
French, there is as much of material for amazement as if new forces
from Heaven hud descended iuto
the field, Meu love surprise ; and
no surprise could bo greater thnn
that of the skilled onlooker when
Koeniggratz revealed the powers of
the needle-gun, and Spoichcren
showed to whnt kind of dreadful
discipline the Prussian army had
been wrought-up. Many spectators, again, who care less fdr dramatic effects, feel intensely the historic aspoct of war, tho light it
throws on the martial capacities of
tho different peoples, on their organization, nnd on tlieir aspirations.
"Theso Germans, theu, are not
dreamers." "These Fronch uro only
great when they win." "Those
Russians die in heaps uselessly."
"These Arabs are heroes." Such
revelations as these, palpable and
unmistakable, beyond urgumont as
boyond alteration, enchant observers with historic minds, uud seem
to them to throw ou the past a
stronger light even than on the present Then there is the passionate
interest excited by great individualities. Nothing arouses this like
war, because no human being is so
visible as a great general. His
strokes, his ideas, his shifts, are
studied like those of a superior being, and whole nations wince if ho
has made a palpable mistake, or is
cut oil' before he hus executed his
plans. It is Wellington who interests, not the British army ; it is thc
fate of Gordon thnt attracts, uot
that of Khartoum. And finally,
there is the interest in the mighty
"game" itself, Jf the faculty of
strategy is not much more widely-
spread than is believed the interest
iu strategy is; aud it is ono of tho
most absorbing kind.   Of the thou-

sands who watch the turns of a
campaign, hundreds, whether qualified or not, form an opinion as to
the merits of the last move, and the
necessity for the next. One rarely
meets the mute, inglorious Milton;
but the non-fighting Joniini is at
every corner. Add to tho lovers of
great drama, to the lovers of history, to the enthusiasts for ability,
and to the men who delight in chess
with a country for table -and brigades for pieces, tho uncountable
crowd who only feci alive when
emotions are strong and dangers
great, and events cataclysmal, and
we shall understand pretty fairly
the wide diffusion of the interest in
war which develops in somo minds,
often belonging to sedentary peoplo,

It was generally believed that
the tories would not accept olliee in
the event of Mr. Gladstone's resig-
- nation, bnt thut belief does not seem
to have been well founded, it is
now announced that it tory govern*
ment will be formed, probably witli
Sir Stafford Northcote or Lord Salisbury as leader. Looking at all the
circumstances it is a matter of no
little wonder that such a decision
should have boen readied. The
tories cannot reasonably hope to
improve tlieir position by aocoptiiig
otlice under the oirouinstances.
Gen. Middleton seems to have
become somewhat disgusted with
tlie aspect of nl.'airs in the northwest, and does not propose to spend
any more time chasing Big Boar
ovor the hills and mountains. He
evidently thinks the task of catching an experienced Indian on his
own ground is more than white
men could reasonably lie expected
to accomplish. .If the bulk of the
troops are sent home, a comparatively small foi'ce stationed in the
north would soon starve Big Bear
and liis people into submission, and
possibly this policy may be pursued.
Outside Opinion.
The Portland Oregonian, which
often displays accurate knowledge
and much fairness in discussing
questions relating to Canada and
Great Britain, gives expression to
the following judgment ou the Dominion franchise bill; "Sir John
Macdonald, the Canadian premier,
tinding himself hard pressed by political foes, is endeavoring to retain
his hold upon the government by
restricting the franchise among tiie
intelligent citizens of Canada, and
giving an unlicensed right of voting
to the Indian wards who receive
subsistence and favors at the hands
of his agents. His franchise bill
provides for a real property qualification of §200 and. an income of
£300 as a condition of voting, and
at tho samo time gives an unrestricted franchise to each of the
bowling redskins whb lives on a reserve when he gets hungry, goes on
the hunt when he gets sportive, and
takes to the warpath when he gets
savage. Such a watering of the
vote of the country wpuld make the
strongest, United Slates democrat
shudder for the fate of free institutions."
Highly Flattering.
A report of thc meeting held by
the provincial secretary at Maple
Ridge last Tuesday will be found
in another column. We have not
yet received a report from Langley.
but hope to receive it before Wednesday. The spirit manifested at
both tliese meetings towards the
government and the provincial secretary (who is senior representative
of the district) was of the most cordial and appreciative kind. There
was not a man preseut upon either
occasion who expressed dissatisfaction at the policy of the government or tho size of the appropriations set apart for public improvements. Indeed if these people
come with unprejudiced minds to a
consideration of the present circumstances, and compare the treatment
they are receiving from the present
government with that received from
former ones, the conclusion reached
must be ono entirely favorable to
thia administration. Tho large
appropriations for public roads and
bridges in the rural districts may
not in some cases be large enough
to accomplish all that one could
wish, but they are immeasurably
larger than those of former years.
If the present government had not
got rid of the dry-dock these sums
now being spent in permanent improvements could not have been
obtained. Not only nre we delivered from the exhaustion of annual appropriations to this profitless
undertaking, but we have been fully
recouped for the sums already expended upon it, and have obtained
a pledge from the federal government that it will be completed and
operated. In this way the province receives the full benefit of tho
dry-dock without any of the expenditure and risk. Having settled
the great questions that were so
seriously embarrasing the peoplo of
this province, and taken much
pains to develop the country's best
interests, the government mnst.be
extremely gratified by such expressions of confidence and hearty
approval as were offered at the
Maple Ridge and Langley meetings,
It Is not True.
In the Toronto Mail of tho 30tli
May we limi the following very mis
-tending announcement:   "A state
ment was published in some of the
morning papers to the effect that
some of the people of  British Columbia had  become very indignant
with the Dominion govqrntnent. for
its policy with  respect to land iti
that province, and were threatening
to   take   up arms to secure their
rights.    The government have no
intimation of anything that looks
like a rising in the Pacific province,
and it must be a gross slander upon
the people of that loyal province
which  is circulated without their
knowledge.    The facts with respect
to the land policy of  the Dominion
government are briefly as follows:—
The provincial  government transferred lo the Dominion government
a belt of land twenty miles ou each
side of the Canada Paoifio railway
in that, provinco, as its contribution
to cost of that, to them, most important   railway  work,     'fho  Do-j
minion   government   made regulations for the sale of these lands nnd
ate   now olleiing   them   for sale
Tliere   may   bti   some   specula tors
whose plans have beon disturbed by
the Dominion government resolving
to sell, and  these may have done
their worst to force (lie Dominion
government to prostitute their pubic trust to the wishes of these speculators.    But   the people are uot
mixed   up with the few speculator
who are trying to compromise the
good faith and the honor of Uritish
Columbia."   The 'Mail could hardly
have struck wider of the mark than
it  has done in the concluding sentences of the above extract.    For
many years the people of this province havo been praying und petitionee Dominion government to
have the lands in the railway belt
surveyed aud placed in the market,
but   hitherto   iu vain.    Our local
government   has   exhausted  every
diplomatic  resource  to bring about
the same object.    The neglect of
the federal government in this matter bus lost to the Dominion thousands of desirable settlers, who have
gone across the boundary disheartened  because tho lauds wero not
available for settlement.    It is not
true tlmt theso lands would fall into
the hands* of speculators if opened
to the public.    It has never boen
asked    by   speculators   that   they
should be so opened, but it has been
asked over and over again by the
great mass of tho people, by successive local governments, aud by the
provincial  press everywhere,   The
Mail is in absolute ignorance of the
subject upon which it writes.
itself, and consumers throughout
the district would be compelled to
pay the Dominion tux. Now that
the federal authorities have abandoned the increased timber dues,
we hope negotiations will still go on
respecting the hind regulations.
There are some of the requirements
of settlement so arbitrary ami so
conflicting with the manifest interests of the country that tbey must
bo modified, Men who come to
Victoria with the object of settling
upon theso lands are constantly
being directed into other regions
where the settlement duties aro less
exacting, and the development of
this district is retarded by the same
cause whieh seriously curtails the
federal revenues. We look forward
with much confidence to the adjustment of this grievance also, but it
ought not to he delayed a moment
longer.
A Musical anil Literary
Yielded One Point.
On Wednesday morning Mr. D.
S. Curtis, secretary of the New
Westminster Board of Trade, received the following telegram :
Ottawa, June 10.—Dominion timber rates reduced to local government
rates on the railwav belt west of Yalo.
-J. A. R. HoMEll.
It will not very much surprise
our readers to learn that the federal
government has yielded this point,
but we must confess that action has
been taken with much more promptness than we expected. But the
pressure brought 'to bear upon the
government has been unusually
great. Not only have numerous
protests been sent to Ottawa, against
the obnoxious regulations by various
corporations, public meetings and
private individuals, but nbovo all
the vigorous and able minute of
council sent forward by the provincial government must have made it
very plain to the people of Ottawa
that a grave blunder had been committed, and that in the interest of
the country it could not be rectified
too soon, This minute (a eopy of
wliich wo published on Wednesday)
reached Ottawa on the 4th of
this molltll, and we have uo doubt
that through it -ohiefly lias been
brought about the concession which
we announce with ho much pleasure
this morning. The promptness and
effectiveness of tho local government's action in this matter deserves
our heartiest commendation, There
are some people who seemed to regard the obnoxious timber regulations as something which concerned
only the mill men, and had no
special interest for tlie general pub;
lie. This is a great mistake. There
is no person in this district who
would not bo affected to some extent by the enforcement of these
regulations, and the consequent embarrassment of the timber trade.
These milling establishments give
steady employment to hundreds of
men, and create a market for the
agricultural products of the district.
Not only is the market created at
tho mills themselves, but wherever
a logging camp is found, there also
grows up a produce market. Besides, the addition which those regulations would put on tho cost of
producing lumber must of necessity
be added to tho price of the lumber

(Reported for ilie Columbian.)
On Tuesday a meeting of the settlers
of this municipality was held at tho

nud to obtain the fullest and freest expression of opinion so thnt, if possible,
the best aud most practical method of
applying the government appropriations might be discovered. He wus

Alliance Willi Turkey.
A special to the Now York .Sun says:
The Timet aiul the A'euvc (jive unusual
prominence to a telegram from Constantinople assorting that Russia hud
rejected the Turkish'proposal* for nu
alliance. A correspondent states thnt
he has official authority for contradicting this assertion. It is not only
false, but it is absurd, for it is Russia,
ami nut Turkoy, that has been suing
for nu alliance, and it is Turkey ami
nut Russia that has declined tho proposals. From the beginning to the
end of tho Russian difficulty Russia
has beou making strenuous efibrts to
secure ut least the friendly neutrality
of Turkey. In the event of war the
control of the Dardanelles would give
Turkey, if hostile t.i Russia, powor
to bottle up the hitler's Heel iu thu
Black Sea, to paralyze Iier trade nnd
to put an embargo upon the greater
portion of her merchant marine, So
Serious wns this danger deemed at St.
Petersburg that M. NullltlblF, one of
thu wiliest and most persuasive of
Russian diplomats, wus nout. in nny
weeks ago tu Oousiantinople to tempt
tho Sultan wiih evory bribe tint Russia could offer to conclude a treaty
givittK Russian war and merchant vessels right of way thruugh tho Daida

uaiiceltiieut of thu indemnity which
Turkey wns orderod hy the Iterliu
congress of 1«7H to pay Russia, in con
sequence of the Turco-Russiiui war.
Tho Russian proposals, it is known,
also bad the powerful support of Bis-
mark. All this time England wns
mnking counter proposals to the sultan, and using tho Soudan us a bait.
The bait was offered on a golden hook,
for it wns.understood that if Turkish
troops wero scut to garrison Suakem
and other points in the Soudan tlieir
expenses would be paid by Kngland,
directly or by taking up u new Turkish
loan, which amounts lo much the
same. Tho porte wavered for a long
time. A receipt in full for the indemnity to Russia had a very tempting
look, but thou thnt debt hnd boon so
long overdue that it hnd coased to
trouble tho conscience of the sultan,
and on the other hand England offered
accession of territory, rehabilitation
of his power in the oyes of the moslutn

Water Supply.
Editor Columiuan.—You will plense
permit me to draw the attention of those
whom it may concern to a subject which
at present though not generally pressing
will by aud bye be u serious question. I
refer to the water supply for New Westminster. The immediate cause of my
broaching this subject is tho fact that we
are engaged iu the erection of u gaol,
which will require a goodly supply of
water; the springs from which it was
expected to get the necessary supply
have been quietly grabbed by private
citizens, hy and with the approbation of
the municipal council. Thc contractor
has been obliged to dig wells in the cellar of the new building to got a very
scanty supply of water to make his mortar. At present there are a number of
workmen sinking for a tank whi.-lrtaps
a spring that would supply the whole
population of New Westiniuster if properly utilized. This is the only spring
from which the new gaol can bo siipjiliod
and now ia the time to secure thc water.
It is a rather strango piece of inconsistency in tho municipality of New Westminster to scorn to be so anxious for the
government to build a new guol und now
when the work is goiilg on to allow private citizens to appropriate the water
supply; and if it were in order I might
mention the names of those citizens who
nre monopolizing these valuable springs
and selling the water to other thirsty
citizens; and it would surprise strangers
who rend the biiucum speeches at our
public meetings to know that theso very
patriots nro tho mode-*' men who grab
sonic of these springs and sell tho wnter.

Frightful catastroplic.
Paws, Juno 11.—At Theirs, a town
in the district of Buy de Dome, a murder trial haa been in progress for some
days. Yesterday, tho last day of the
trial, the court house was crowded
with men and women, anxious to witness tho closing scenes. When the
peoplo were leaving, immediately afier
the adjournment of court, and were
crammed upon the stono stairway
leading to the street, the staircase fell.
The scene that followed was appalling,'.
Immense masses uf masonry from
above crushed down upon the struggling peoplo below, grinding their
flesh and hones, and maiming nnd
mutilating them in a horrible maimer.
The fall of the staircase nnd (ho
screams of tho people lying helpless
in the ruins caused u panic in the
court-room, and there wns a rush for
the now wrecked exit. Tlioso who
wore iu front, unable to withstand the
pressure from behind, wero hurled
down upon men nud women crushed
in thu fall of the staircase, and whom
tho peoplo iu tho street wero already
striving to rescue. When at lust tho
panic had exhausted itself antl tho
immense stone steps of iho fallen staircase had beou removed, twenty persons weru taken from the ruins dead.
The injured numbered not less lliun
sixty, nud many of these will die.
A later dispatch snys in addition to
the twenty persons killed fully one
hundred more are injured.
A still later dispatch from Thiers
makes tho court house calamity tliere
yesterday far more disastrous in its
consequences than earlier dispatches
contemplated. Tho dead already number 24, while Iho total number injured
ia now placed iit 163. Of these, 14

London, .June 0,—Great surprise ia
expressed at the defeat of the government. It was expected tlint efforts
would be made lust night to prevent the
proposed increase of duties upon beer
and spirits, hut thete was no ground for
the minor that tho opposition would
overturn the cabinet, lt was rumored
us extremely doubtful whether ministers
could resign and loavo unfinished so
many important matters relating to both
home and foreign affairs. Nothing more
ufitownrij than the present crisis could
have occurred. Apparently men of all
parties arc of opinion that the government should at least remain iu power
provisionally; that is until after the general election,
Lonuon, June P.—Tlm Slumlord in an
editorial this morning says: We cannot
believe tlmt, the ministers will leave their
otlice. Thoy have received a mortal
stroke, but they must, whether they
like it or not, agree to linger on until
the generul election. This very blunder
rentiers them indispensable; everything
is inilinislicd and hangs iu suspense,
What cabinet can succeed? If tlio con-
scryotives nro to rule thoy must have a
majority, for which they must look to
tlieir constituencies. An election now
is impossible; the government cannot
retrieve their loss, but can ut any rate
prove themselves conscious of their duty
to the country by struggling maufully
iu their present painful position, Party
life must remain in suspense until the
election/ The Standard further says
that Karl Speucer wanted tho duration
of thu. crimes act to be three years, but
u compromise of two years was agreed
upon. The bill, drafted under Earl
Silencer's direction, has heen considered
by the cabinet. It is a comprehensive
measure of local self government for
Ireland, including thc abolition of the
viccroynlty. A dispatch from Cairo
says some excitement has been created
here among Knglish ofiicials and residents by the arrival of a Coptic merchant from Khartoum. He states that
he witnessed the capture of Khartoum,
and that immediately after the massacre
of the garrison El Mahdi demanded thc
head of (len. Cordon for atrophy; but
liis warriors produced the head of the
Austrian consul, Mr. Hausal. When
the mistake was discovered a second
search waa made for Geu. Gordon, but
Kl Mahdi's followers were unable to find
any trace of tho hero of Khartoum,
Thoy found several other Europeans,
hut un documents were found on their
clothes to show thnt either of them was
Gen. Gordon. The Coptic snys it is possible that Gen. Gordon, knowiug that all
wns lost, made his escape.
London, Juno O.—The Timet in an
editorial says: The resignation of the
cabinet iu the presont condition of affairs
must uot be hastily decided upon. The
government's duty is to consider whether
such a course would not he wrong to the
country financially, It might easily be
arranged by abandoning the increase in
the duties on Hour and spirits without
leaving Childers a largo deficit to carry
forward to next year.

posed attempt to again saddle upon Ire-

Tho Dominion government, while admitting the necessity which exists for a

afternoon tha' he had resigned ofllce,
nud tlmt. the Quoel) had accepted his
resignation, nud lhat Her Majesty bad
informed him thnt she had summoned
the Marquis of Salisbury, leader of
tbe opposition iu the house of buds,
to Balmoral for the purpose of eti-
i nisi in-,- Iiiiii with the mission nf for
inji a new ministry,
LosiioN, June IL'. -The Marquis of
Salisbury arrived nt Balmoral at 5
o'clock this afterntinn. Gladstone received a C'liuinuiiicntinli fn-m the t.-uecii
acktinwleili-iiij. receipt of resignation
of the prime minister nnd his cabinet.
She also states that pending the con-
Bidurali'in of the resignation of tho
Gladstone ministry she had summoned
to Balmoral the Marquis of Salisbury.
Iu tho house of huds Earl Granville
announced that Gladstone hnd ten-
tit-red the resignation of himself nnd
his entire cabinet, and that the Queen
hnd accepted I lio resignations, and had
summoned tn her presence the Marquis of Sslislmry, who is now at Balmoral in conference with Her Majesty;
therefore, Lord Granville said, ho
hoped thc house would abandon all

London, .luno 12.—It is reportod
today in certain circles thnt tho Marquis nf Salisbury, after consultation

Perhaps the most artistic building ou
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
thc most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of thia building, which cost
about 81,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements ot the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
thc merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds ior their business has been re-
wartjjjd. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
tho provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances on
flrst-class instruments made by leading
city aud country musicians.
Bight well do tbe Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great Institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
nbout fifteen years ago, the stock being
nt thnt time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary nud treasurer; George Piggott, the
mannger of the manufacturing department; and W. S, Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the slyircholder* and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire ns a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings.
t turns ont shout 200 organs and SO
pianos per month. These are produced
by 250 hands, who receive in wages
about $15,000 per month. The whole
civilized world -is the firm's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide nnd Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship, Au upright piano
of bun- walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square nnd u square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of a room, aud is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. Tho
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a linnds.iine appearance, ami is
suited for occupying a prominent ikr'
tion in drawing or music room. Thi
two instruments aro of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful, lu musical quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos.
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in alt styles, aud at alt
prices, ranging from $00 to $1,000. Many
sample organs are shown ia the ptvilion.
Tho largest organ wffich the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to he
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been plnced in position to await tlie
arrival of tlie big instrument. The organs run through all grades, from tlie
thousand dollar instrument down to tho
pnrlor favorite. The casos show wonderful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty nnd skilful workmanship.
The case which secured for the Company
n prize at the Centennial Kxhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs arc chaste iu design aud artls
tic in execution, Tho musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweet-
ness oi tone and elasticity of touch they
aro model instruments; while visitors
cnu themselves judgo ns to the beauty
and style of the cases.

rivalled Family Atlas. oeDMo Navigation or Hudson's Ray,
Tbo Halifax Herald publishes an interview with Captain William Adams,
the famous Dundee whaler ahd Arctic
navigator, who guts on the steamer
Alert to Hudson's Bay on bclinlF of
tho Hudson's Bay Railway nnd Navigation Company, to roport i'u the
feasibility ami practicability of the
route to Europe. Capt, Adams lias
had o> third of a century's experience
in navigating northern waters, uml is
confident Hudson's Buy is a practicable route four months of the yoar. Ho
says navigation is open from tho middle of Juno to tbe end of October to
ships properly equipped with two nnd
a half inch iron bark for the outside
shell, with suitable ice stem, inside
fortification, aud with extra beam.
Those ships should be limited to 2,500
toiiB in size; larger vessels would be
too long tn wind through the ice packs.
They need not bo wooden ships, ns
after making two trips lo Hudapti'B
Bay during the season they should be
employed iu the Atlantic or nny uther
trade during the rest of the yenr. Men
of energy and spirit will inntccj the
route a success. If lhe railway route
is practicable, tho opening of ocean
navigation from Hudson b Bay to
Europe is only a question of timu and
money. Ho thinks there ib na much
danger in navigating tho coasts of
Newfoundland and Nova Scotia during
the breaking up of the ioo in the spring
as in navigating Hudson's liny nnd
Strait during the four months Indicated. The safety of the ship there,, ns
here, depends very largely on the
common' senso, experience, watchfulness nnd emit ion of the captain.
Speaking of tho whale fishery, ho gave
very interesting facts and figures showing its enormous profits, nud says
either Halifax or St. Johns, Ntid.,
would make a far better whale fishing
headquarters for the world thnn Dundee.
Wine at the Passover*
A member of the editorial staff' of
the Methodist Times, London, in the
issue of that paper for April 10th, gives
a very interesting account of what ho
saw nnd hoard at a modern celebration
of the Jewish Passover, at the house
of an orthodox Jew, to which ho hnd
been invited on the occasion, Tho nccount is too long to be inserted here,
but we give the closing paragraph.
Tho writer says; "Supper being ended,
I said, amongst other things to an intelligent and afi'able Rabbi, who aat
next iub, 'May T ask with what kind
of wine you have celebrated the Passover this evening?' 'With anon ■intoxicating wine' ho promptly replied.
'Jews nevor uso fermented wine in
their synagogue services, and must nut
use it on the Passover either for synagogue or home purposes. Fermented
liquor of any kind comes under tho
category of 'lenven,' which is proscribed in bo tunny well-known places
in tho Old Testament. The wine
which is used by Jews during thc week
of Passover ts supplied to the community by thoso licensed by the Chief
Rabbi's Boiird, and by those only.
Each bottle is scaled in tho presence
of a representative of the ecclesiastical
authorities. The bottle standing yonder oil tho sideboard from which the
wine used to-night was taken was thus
sealed. I nmy also mention that poor
Jews who cannot afford to buy 1 liis
wine, make an uuferuiented wine nf
their own, which is nothing else hut nn
infusion uf Valencia or Muscatel raisins. I have recently read the passage
in Matthew in whioh the Paschal Supper is described. Tlierii can bu no
doubt whatever that the wine used
upon that occasion was uiifermenterl,
Jesus us nn observant Jew would not
only not havo drunk fermented wine
on the Passover, but would not havo
celebrated the Passover in any house
from wliich everything fermented hnd
not been removal. I may mention
that the wine I use in the service nt
tbe Byiiign^ue is an infusion of raisins.
You will allow me, perhaps, to express
my surprise that Christians who pro- j
fees to bu followers of Jesus of Kaza-1
roth can take (That he could not pos-1
sibly have taken as a Jew—intoxicating wine, at so sacred a service as the
sacrament of the Lord's Supper.' "
filet's Rascally Becortl.
Frank Eastman, who has been clerk
to the Senate Committee un Claims for
the post two years, was district attorney at Helena, M. T., tn 1SS2. In a
conversation on the Canadian insurrection Mr. Eastman said: ''I know
Louis Riel well. He wns tbe leader
of the Red River insurrection in 1872,
and was guilty of the most atrocious
and inhuman crimes ever perpetrated
by man. Add to the tortures of the
inquisition every agony that devilish
ingenuity could suggest or invent, and
you may get a faint idea of the manner in which Red treated tho unfortunate captives who fell into his hands.
The Canadian government secured the
services of a priest to visit Riel, and
aftor much trouble he succeeded in
inducing Riel to surrender, Tu spite
of his many acts of fiendish cruelty
and the fact that he was guilty of high
treason, the Canadian govornment
failed to givu him thc hemp he so
richly deserved, and is now reaping
tho fruits of its mistaken mercy. In
November, 1882, Uicl was engaged in
selling whisky eight or ten miles inside of the lower border of tho Black*
feet reservation. Ho procured tho
liquor iu Fort Benton, and, failing to
pay his bills and boing unable to secure
any more credit, he transferred his
valuable cuBtom to Helena. Here his
credit also ran out,-Mid when C. A.
Broadwater, tho partner and iigout of
Wilder of St. Paul, told him he could
be credited no longer, Riel said, ''All
right, Meester Broadwater, but I would
like to meet you out on te perarie,"
thuB conveying a delicate suggestion of
the hereafter.
Riel was shortly after indicted for
selling rum to the Indiana, and when
brought to trial refused to answer any
questions, frankly stating that he refuted because ho did not care to eliminate himself. During tha trial a juror
asked Riol if he was not tho man who
incited tho lied River Insurrection in
1872. "Sair," replied Riol with great
dignity, "I am zo man who attempted
to introduce republican institutions in
znt country." As no other witnesses
eould be procured, Riel wns acquitted,
although there was no doubt iu the
world ns to his guilt, He was indicted
at Benton for election frauds at kocky
Point, in the spring of 18811, and, boing
unable to procure bail, was imprisoned ill jail for two or throe months,
Then ho succeeded in securing bonds-
mon in the persons uf William II.
Hunt, tho son of the ex-secretary of
the navy, and then collector of the
Port of Port Benton, and Tlmmns
Outnmings, n former collector. After
being released he went up into Manitoba, and from recent events it is evi-
dent that he wns engaged in laying lit*
[dans fur the present insurrection.
He returned to Fort Benton and was
tried, but as the people around Rocky
Point led nomadic lives, it was impossible lo obtain any witnesses save
Kiefs half-breed wife nud brother-in -
law. Of course he was not convicted.

Tiio Awful Torpedo,
The role of thc torpedo boat is terrible; and those who direct its movements aro exposed tu tiio greatest dangers. A single heave shot may shatter
it to atoms, and whon it approaches
tho enemy a hail of balls from tho
mitrailleuses and rilles will do terrible
execution on board. Thorofure tho
moro fact of embarking on a torpedo
bont is a guarantee of bravery. Figure
to yourself tho situation of tho officer
in command of such a torpedo bont
who is ordered to sink a ship of thc
enemy's squadron. All his surroundings constitute one vast danger. Tho
very sea that hides and protects him
during the lirst part of his expedition
may in another moment toBfl" his corpse
hither and thither upon its waves,
lliu adversary will seek to riddle the
boat with ft rain of stool, cast iron and
load. Thu torpedo itself, which carries much terror with it, might bo
touched with ft missile and explode,
bursting tho torpedo bunt.into atoms,
The combat commence^. The vessels
of the licet, have opened lire. Shells
rain in nil directions. One of mir
cruisers, cniimnindetl heavily till the
starboard   sitlo   by   a   fort  mounting
twelve Krupp cannon, is simultaneously attacked on the larboard side by
one of tho enemy's ironclads, Sho
has already suffered severely, nnd her
position becomes critical. A must
signal from tho adiniial's ship is given;
and a torpedo boat starts. Thc watchful enemy has observed thu signal,
Ho knows the danger, nnd at onco
concentrates nil his tiro upon the little
gray speck which is shooting rapidly
towards him, Three miles separate
thorn, nnd tho torpedo boat must
mnke that throe miles ill ton minutes.
If it is not sunk before it has traveled
that distance, the ironclad is lost.
Therefore thc dannnnicrs point their
guns with the most scrupulous care.
Tho first shells puss wide uf the mark;
but the aim is rectified, and soon the
shells fall so near thc torpedo boat
that thoy throw the wider over it.
Now one has fallen right at its prow,
A geyser of water thirty feet high
conceals thc torpedo bont; the enemy
believes it has been sunk, and utter a
tremendous cheer. But thu projectile
has only ricuchettcd nnd passed over
it. The water falls back in rain, aud
the brave little vessel reappears till
streaming with brine, as though it had
emerged from tho sea deeps, and rushing on at full steam in the fnce of
death.
There are only nine men on the little vessel, and thoy nre going to attack
a sort cf leviathan carrying :m immense crew. • It is not the light of one
against ton, but of one against a
hundred.
Not a single word is uttered beyond
the necessary onlcrs. Those men
whom denth already touches with his
lingers are silent and grave. And do
not supposo for :i moment that thoy
du not think of tho danger. On the
contrary, they think of nothing else.
But it is nol of their own danger they
arc thinking, but bf the danger tif
failure. Tt is hot'a question of their
lives, but of the success of tho enterprise. It is essential Hint the torpedo
boat shall reach thc enemy's Hank nnd
rescue our cruiser. After that, if thc
torpedo boat sinks, su much tho worse.
Every nerve is strained, every eye
is directed toward tho object in view.
Now tho boat is only live hundred
yards awny from thc ironclad. The
lire of the mitrailleuses minifies with
tiie showers of shells and-swoeps tho
deck; everything wooden is splintered
to atoms with grapeshot. An incessant
tiro of repeating rirles from the mast
tops of the ironclad plays over the
torpedo bnnl; nnd the balls entering
through the small oUenings in the
decks have already disabled three
men. They Hu in a corner to which
thoy were able to drag themselves,
for there is no time now to attend
to thein. They may be thought of in
two iniuutes moro—after the fate of
all shall have boon decided.
The torpedo boat has almost reached
its enemy. Tlie success uf the expedition is now nssurod, for thc shell
batteries arc powerless to harm tho
turpedo boat at such short range. The
rifle tire, terrible as it is, cannot sink
her. It can only kill boiho of her
crew; but that is of no groat consequence! Now is the time that the
captain needs nil his surety of eye and
coolness of will, nuw is the time when
his men must execute orders with the
rapidity of lightening;, for if the tor
pedo bo fired a second too soon it will
fail to do its terrible duty, and yet if
thoro bo a delay of n. moment tho torpedo boat must dash itself to pieces
against thy sides of its mighty adversary.
Now the boat seems almost ready to
touch the enemy's vessel. Hand-grenades Hung upon her deck rubound
nnd burst; one man is killed; tho captain has recoived a terrible wound in
the face; hut, summoning nil Iub
strength, he supports himsolf erect
against an iron wall by a sublime effort
of will. Livid, drenched with blood,
but terrible iu his calm resolvo and
bravery, he keeps his eyo atill on the
enemy.
"Ready! Let her go!"
The awful missile is launched, All
enormous surge appears in thp water,
and n frightful, crackling noise is
hoard, followed by a lorriblo cry of
distress; tho pigmy has conquered the
ginnt.
"Hard a starboard!"
And tho little vessel, suddenly
wheeling around, steams away at full
speed while thu enemy's irouchid'siiiks
to tho bottom.
Ten minutes afterward the torpedo
boat hnq returned to its post beside
the Amirul's vessel—the admiral Bonds
for tho captain in order to congratulate him. Ho ia carried to him on n
bier. Meanwhile the fight goes on,
A new expedition may prove necessary.
A provisory captain is at once appointed, and four men to complete tho decimated crew; and thn torpedo boat is
ready to fulfil another mission; it has
another band of heroes to direct it.—

A Maine farmer had a wifo who declared sho would never bo weighed.
Ouo day when shu wns iu tho wagon
he drove his team on to the hay scales
in Auburn and had tho whole thing
weighed without his wife knowing
wlmt wns going on. Then ho afterwards came buck aud had tho t.oatn
weighed without his wife, and found it
juat 225 pounds lighter. So ho had
his way and she had her weigh.--La

Nothing exasperates a woman, who
has boon shading her oyes from the

so much as to find she had left her
I bost dipmond ring on tho wnshstand.
