It is generally believed tbat the
Times of London and tbe Gaxetie de
France ot Paris are the oldest papers
in existence, but this appears to be
a mistake. The honour belongs to
the Ohinese, who possess a journal
started nearly a thousand years ago.
Its name is the King-Pan. It was
founded, says a learned bibliophist,
ih ffieye»r'9il of the CSriStian era.'
At first it was published at irregular
periods, but in 1361 it became a
weekly, In 1804 it underwent another transformation and appeared
daily. It costs a halfpenny, and issues three editions. The morning
edition, printed on yellow paper, is
devoted to commerce; the noon edition, printed on white paper, contains
official acts and miscellaneous news,
while the evening edition, printed
on red paper, is taken up with political information and leading articles.
It is edited by six members of the
Academy of Science, and the total
sale of the three editions is 14,000
copies.—PallMatt Gazette,
The practico of "hilling" potatoes
during cultivation and growth is almost universal, and in most inotan-
ces is positively detrimental to pro
ductiveness, yet it is nearly impossible to convince farmers of this fact.
Many years ago we gave the matter
a thorough trial, giving the field in
charge of two careful hired then.
Alternate strips of two or threo each
were hilled and left flat. The men
were very confident in their assurances that our previous opinions
were mistaken, as we would seo
when the crop was harvested. When
digging wo directed them to measure and record on a shingle the product of each strip, and to report the
result. But they'did not report for
some days, until asked for the shingle, Thoy did not like to confess
their great mistake, and had hoped
the matter would be forgotten. The
foot was that the flat culture gave
from fifteen to twenty percent more
that the hills, but when tho hilling
was moderate the difference'was
less.—Country Gentleman.
Although the officer of the Geological Department of India, who
was despatched last year by Lord
Dufferin to study the mineral resources of Upper Burmah has not
yet made his report, the result of his
labors in the Ghindwin Valley, to
the west of tho Irrawaddy, is known
generally. In the wild mountainous districts of the upper Ohindwin
between the Irrawaddy and the Bra-
hamaputra, at a lofty elevation, he
has found abundance of amber and
jade or serpentine. The latter is
sought by the Ohinese everywhere,
and special colors are highly valued
by them, bo that it is an important
item in the trade of suoh countries
adjoining the Ohinese Empire as
possess it. The valley, which is the
centre of amber mines, is inhabited by civilized Shans, while Ohinese
Kachins and others work the mines
as well. Iron, Copper, and the
baser metals do not appear to exist
here in much abundance, bnt they
do in other parts of Upper Burmah,
whioh opparently tho Indian geologist bas not yet thoroughly examined—iV. Y. Witness.
The talk about the United States
going to war rather than see any
other country obtain exclusive influence in Hawaiian affairs leads
the Ohicago News to remark that it
might be possible, by threatening
Oanada to keep England in check;
but what chance, it asks, would the
United States have of preventing
liermany or Franco estanilshlng a
protectorate ovor King Kalakaua's
domain? It could not fire a shot unless it could lease England's Pacific
squadron. ''It is pitiably true,"
says the News, "that the United
States, with its 60,000,000 inhabitants; its annual income of over
$325,000,000; its annual surplus
of about $100,000,000; its inexhaustible resources; its thousands of
miles of defenceless coast line, and
its vast maritime interests—with
all these it is more that pitiably true
that it has not a navy either on the
Pacific or elsewhere worth mentioning. The Independence of tho
Sandwich Islands may bo of incalculable value to the United States;
but it has not ths shadow of an armoured fleet with which to maintain that independence or assert a
protectorate over the key to the Pacific carrying trade. Perhaps in
the twentieth century we may get
a Congress that will build us a
navy,"

DS. Ml'GLYKK ON TBE SOCIALISTS.
New Yoek, July 28.—', What effect
is the admission of Socialist* to. the
l^tior party i^g to SRW"-was Halted of Dr. McGlynn this morning. "Oh.
thereis a small percentage of the Socialists who are well disciplined arid
resonable who went to unite with the
Labor party, and we are glad to to
have them. They are willing to adopt
our platform as a whole, but if they
attempt to work in any of their ex*
treme Socialistic ideas we will simply
vote them down; about ten to one or
something like that," replied the Doc*
tor. "Then you think thete is no
danger of thoir capturing tho party!"
"Not the slightest. The number of
Socialists in New York is comparatively small, but their votes count and we
are pleased to have them with us.
Our platform is acceptable to them
but we could not accept their doctrines
nor do we think they will ask us."
ANOTHER IRISH MEMBER SUSPENDED.
London, July 28.— There was an
exciting scene in the- House of Commons to-night, occasioned by Mr. Lisle
speaking in a grossly insulting manner of tho Parnellites. Mr Thomas
Henley resented it, nnd challenged
Lislo to go out nnd tight. Healoy was
promptly called to order by the Speaker, and, refusing to apologize, was
suspended for one week.
SPORTINO MATTERS,
Boston, July 28. — John Keenan,
the well-known sporting man and backer of John Teemer. the sculler, has
written a challenge to Edward Hnnlrm.
Ho is ready to back Teemer for (1,000
in a race with Hanlan, for a distance
of three miles with one turn, the race
to como off within four woeks. Keenan
says that he will give Hanlan (300 for
his expenses to go to Boston and row.
Hanlan would prefer to row on Toronto Bay, and Keenan offers to take the
8300 oxpenses and have Teemer row
him there. Keenan will baok Teemer
to auy amount.
DISALLOWANCE WILL BE ENFORCED.
Ottawa, July 28. — The Dominion
Government contemplates following
up the disallowance of the Bed River
Valley Railway charter by issuing an
injunction to restrain the contractors
from laying down a line upon the lauds
owned by the Government. It is stated that should the officers of the law
be resisted the militia will be called
out.
TWO FIREMEN DROWNED.
Winnifeo, July 28. — Hugh Burnam
and Robt. Aire, two C. P. E. firemen,
were drowned while boating on Bed
River last night. The bodies were recovered shortly after tlie accident.
A Terrible Experience.
How Serious Consequences Sometimes
Come from Innocent Causes.
"Why, dear me, if it isn't almost 3
o'cloek! I've got to start right off to
Sunday school! I have a cIhsb, you
know! You'll come along, too, won't
you, George! You must come! You
need it sadly enough, goodness knows!"
This was Eva. Eva is sort of .
seventh cousin of mine, with a charming home just out of town, and I was
Sundaying thore. Eva's papa has just
gone in pretty vehemently on an iron
mine up in Michigan; and, you see,
I'm nursing Eva along,*so to speak,
till I see what that mine is going to do.
So I said:—"Why, I assure yo«, nothing could give me greater pleasure."
"So we went; ana I, with tho accustomed modesty of my profession (the
law), slunk into a baok scat with the
intention of quietly twirling my
thumbs and otherwise utilising the
time.
But hark!—a stealthy tread—'tis the
superintendent!
I am very much in need of another
teacher; one of my teachers is away today, and won't you be good enough to
tnVo hi. plflfrA?"
"Well, I should rather say not!" I
remarked to my inner self, while outwardly I stammered: "Why,—thank
you, air—but, really—it has been so
long since I had such a pleasure—that
—really, I fear that I could scarcely—
do the subject justice."
But tho superintendent was quite
sure, ete.; and after about five minutes
of this fascinating debate, during which
what seemed to me about a thousand
eyes were feasting upon my glowing
features—my temperature having gone
from eighty-five to the neighborhood
cf eight hundred—my charming
seventh cousin came swaying swan-like
down the aisle, saying:
"Oh, do ask him to take a class; he
teaohes a class beautifully; only ho
needs a little urging!"
O, Sapphics, Sapphira, how tho
modern 10 year old, brown-eyed Sunday sohool teacher can leave you behind when she want, to!
"You just take this lesson paper and
ask the questions; they're all printed
there, you see; and thoy answer them,
and that's all!"
I looked toward the door, but two
corpulent females stood there in protracted converse. To .queue between
them was impossible. The lowness of
the.lintel precluded a wild leap over
their heads; the window, wet. dosed
ud caulked with ootton sine, the win
ter. So I walked meekly down tha
aisle, my hurt throbbing with religion,
emotion, and took my place tafoii my
class. There they nt—ten boy. of
them—waiting for the fray. I Mind
the lesson paper; there they mn, jut
ten question, of them, waiting to bo
aaked. With an imprewive Sabbatical intonation I began dealing oat tho
ten interrogations from left to right.
Regarding the accuracy of tho answer.
the brevity of my preparation did not
permit me to form an authoritative
opinion. Regarding their speed thon
could be no question; and baldly had
I begun before I found myaelf at tb.
last boy, and mj lrut question used up.
I looked around at th. superintendent
to see if he showed sums of closing tho
office, but he appeared to b. right in
six midst of btuiiM. how. and Wa.
holding, very cheerful obarenatfoa :
with my aforementioned Sapphiratleal
relative.
I gazed about at the other teaonem;
they were all deep in th. instruction
of youth. The time for folding yoar
tents; like the Arabs, had evidently
not yet arrived. It wss safe to say
that I'd got to ask that elan Mm. mom
questions. Bright thoughtl I'll bo-
gin atthe other end. Sol did,read
Ing out the meagre words a. slowly
and lingeringly as possible, But than X
was again at the lut boy. I pwred
ansiously around. Th. superintendent was still chatting with .nohanting
obliviousness; his able oorp. of assistants were still in the heat and din of
the engagement.
"Boys," said I, striving as best I
could to conceal my emotion, " how
long does this last!"
"TilU."
I shot an esg.rglanoe.tth.eool.jiM-
tioal time-piece over my head; It wa.
seventeen minutes put three.
"My good "—but I cheeked roy«elf.
1 was way up in front, where everybody could see. I'd aot to keep
things moving, or there'd be no ond of
scandal. Calling up all the resource*
of a well-disciplined mind, I speedily
hit upon another plan, and asked my
ten precious question, all overt again,
making the boys answer in concert.
This got rid of several minute* It
wu now twenty-six minutesputthrM.
An awkward pause; a moment of intense thought; then had I them answer
beginning at th. lut quntion uid
going backward. Then load aU th.
boys over 12 yean of are recite in
turn; then all under. 12. It wu now
nineteen minutes of four. '
Then I began again at the first que.- ,
tion, making each boy stud up and
face the opposite wall, while h. anV
wered.   Thirteen minutes and twenty-
nine seconds of four!
"Boys," said I, beginning to warm
to the work, "now stand up and answer theso quntion. again, lifting font
right foot off th. loor «s yoo do ■»;
now your left foot; now both hot"
Six minutes eighteen and nine-tenth
seconds of fonr!
"Boys," uid I, mopping my dewy
brow, "I will uk you then quntion.
again; and, u each on. i» euled up,
he must first stand on his feet and repeat his answer backward; ud thu
stand on his bead and repeat it tideways."
I had only, however, got u far u
the fourth boy when the bell rang and
the school closed.
This happened three month, ago,
but my physician tells me It will yet
be a long time before I can endure
any severe mental strain; and that I
must not think of resuming the
onerous duties of my profession, t
tell you this is pretty hard, when I
had auoh a fine start, with a nic., light
office and an upholstered swiv.1 dnir;
•nd my letter-heads all printed and
everything .11 ready for a case.—/. P.

Costly Information. — A thrifty
deck has just been dropped from th.
war department pay roll. It i. alleged that long since he hired a port-
office box under an assumed name and
proceeded to do business with his fellow citizens. A printed circular noti-
fled the inhabitants of the "way-booh"
district that the receipt of f 10 would
entitle the sender to information whioh
would enable him to secure employment under the government. Hot a

The Keely Motor.
It is some months since an announcement was made to tho eiToot
that the wonderful invention of
Keely would be put to a practical
test. At that time'Mr.'Keely had
just givon one of his customary exhibitions at which thero were present a huge number of men whose
position in the world of soience and
commeroe ought to have invested
their opinion with some degree of
authority. These men bore testimony to the wonderful character of
the invention and the absence of
humbug in the exhibition, and the
undoubted power exhibited by the
strange machine set out by the inventor. Mr.Keely had only a few
finishing touches to put on his great
machine, when it would be attaohed
to a train of cars at Philadelphia
and run through to New York. But
that has boon the lost of it. Because one of the editors of the
Scientific Arena yms present and
added his testimony to the honesty
of the motor, we felt disposed to
place some confidence in Keely.
ITio Arena is, we believe, a thoroughly honert journal, aud we feel
sure the report of its representative
was an honest report so far as he
was concerned; but it must be confessed that all the circumstances
connected with the Keely motor are
such aa to awaken serious doubts
with respect to the whole business.
It it moro than time for Mr. Keely
to fulfil his promises, so often repeated and always broken.
Oar Fish Supply.
The scarcity of salmon in Fraser
River this season is a source of
great disappointment to all who are
connected directly or indirectly with
the canning industry. It was believed this would bo a good year for
fish, but present indications do not
justify that belief. It is the opinion of tome that this river, once
filled almost to overflowing with
these deliciouB and profitable fish, is
in danger of' partaking of the experience of tho Sacramento and
Columbia rivers. The Sacramento
is practically fished out. The catch
has fallen from 200,337 coses in
1882 to 36,500 cases in 1886. This
season it has been lets than 20,000,
In the Columbia river the same pro
cess of diminution is going on. In
1884 there were 629,000 cases
packed on that river, in 1885 there
were 551,000 cases, last year it was
540,000, and this year the pack is
estimated at about 400,000. The
falling off in the Sacramento and
Columbia from 1883 to 1887 is
about 290,000 cases. The causes
assigned for this startling decline
are over-fishing and neglect in the
enforcement of: proper regulations
for the preservation of the fish.
Both these causes have been operating on the Fraser. Until a few
years ago the regulations were not
by any means as stringent as they
ought to have been, and while there
was a superabundant supply of fish,
many fishermen were wasting the
material ont of which future sup.
plies must come. The multiplication of nets on the river must produce a perceptible effect upon the
number of fish, Of late years
these net. have formed a barrier
past which it must sometimes have
been difficult for tho fish to go. The
remedies are to be found in artificial
propagation and a rigid enforcement
of such regulations as will permit a
larger number of fish to reach the
spawning grounds and protect them
and their young from needless destruction. The canning industry is
one of the greatest and most important in the country. In it has been
invested a large amount of capital,
and it gives employment to thousands ot men every season. It
would be a great misfortune if the
fithing business of the Fraser should
ever come to i the condition whioh
that of the Sacramento hus reached.
For the past three years the hatchery has been sending out millions of
young fry, but it will be years yet
before these shall have oome to maturity and return to give themselves
up to thow who mined them into
existence. There should be no curtailing of the efficiency ot this important institution, for we have
faith in its ability to increase materially the fish supply. The
shortage of the pack on this coast
hat produced a considerable advance
in pricet, and our cannery men will,
fortunately, be able to find compensation to some extent at least in
this tact In the rivers of the
north-west coast, where the effects
of constant and extensive fithing
have not yet produced the natural
result., it is probable the catch will
be larger than it was last year, but
this will 'not be at all inffioient to
make up the shortage elsewhere on
the coast.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(l.ailTBD.1
OK THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased hy a
.joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern haa been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vanoouver. Tho object of
tlio now company is to oontinue the publication of the British Columbian newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual Interest 1, will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thore will be no
Blackening of tho energy hitherto displayed in the management of the estab.
llshmnnt, and ita patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.*
The Columbian will oontinue to be entirely independent tn both Dominion end
provincial politics, and will devote lUelf
to the advancement of snch schemes ai
may be considered in the publio interest.
The concern ia nowentiraly separate from
any other business, tho book and.
stationery establishment in this dty'
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Pearson, who will contlnuo to carry it on
in his own name and for Ma own benefit,
lt is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this oity, and
the new company asks for publlo patronage on iho ground that it Is engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publio welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on Ua own mwita and
supported only eo long aa lta polioy la
enconalftt with ita professions. In con.
sequence of thia business change all accounts due the oonoero must be Battled
without delay so that the books ol the
former company may be adjusted and
closed. Address all communloationa and
rtmittincos to

Instances of the Heroism of the Gentle
ties at Sea*
Owners of ships forbid, following an
old theory, tbat captains take thoir
wives out to son, because they are afraid
tho wlfo would demand some of the hus-
Land's nttentlon when tho ship requires
all of it. This theory Is unfounded and
bappil/j has many opponents.
I remember the ease of the freight
steamor Edgar, bound from the Sone-
eal to London. A fever breaking out on
oard laid low the wholo orew, excepting ihe captain and the mate. Then
two men-took charge ot the engine
room, while the captain's wife steered.
It she had not shown her ability
to do so the ship would have been
lost.
During the first days ot the California
gold fever the horoloal Mary Patten
sailed round Capo Horn with her husband. He fell 111 and his brave wife
took his place on the quartor-deok.
The crew was composed of land lubbers, who could sot toll the difference
between a sextant and a molasses Jug,
tho mats being no better. Mrs. Fatten
kept the log, took the sun, and led the
ship without misadvonture to San Franoisco, nursing her husband when below
and off duty.
The fact that the British brig Oleotus
was navigated by a Miss Bessie Miller
tor many years, Is not less remarkable.
Her father was an owner ot ships at
Saltcoats. Having no sons, he took the
daughter Into his business, and was
lrequently accompanied by her when
bub; r "so brought him to the docks. She
gathered so much information concerning ships and navigation, and Imbibed
suoh a desire for a genuine sailor's lite-
that "papa" made her captain of the
CleotuB, a vessel which he bad specially
1 built for her.
For more than twenty years ehe navigated her craft in the waters ot the oon-
iluont and on the stormy ooast of Great
Britain, constantly besieged by and refusing tho offers ot seamen, who had
beon fascinated by her courage. After
her father's death she retired from tho
sea to take charge ot his business.
Mary Beed, an English girl, was put
Into boy's clothes by her mother, that
hor youth might bo free from the cares
and wants which the mother had
suffered.
Mary nt first entered sorvlee as valet,
then she went as volunteer Into the
Guards. Falling In love with another
volunteer, she confessed hor sex and
was married to him in the presence ot
the whole regiment.
The husband dying afewyoars later,
Mary donned men's clothing again and
wont to sea. Captured by pirates, she
Joined their band and fell in love once
more.
The man ot her heart became embroiled In a quarrel with a shipmate,
and Mary feared for his life. Not
Irolng well able to prevent a duel, Mary
sought a quarrel with the same adversary of her lover, compolled him to fight,
and vanquished him two hours before the
time at which he waa to meet the
lover.
She had In the meantime oonfessed
her sex to the latter, and as a proper end
ot this chapter in her career, she
was married to him by the priest ot an
Isolated Island. „ , ,„ .
The man was subsequently killed, and
Mary joined the crew ot the celebrated
pirate, Captain Backman, who was accompanied by another female. Anne
Bonney, also a former sailor and pirate.
Vary had again denned male dress,
and through her bravery and ability
roso high In the estimation et her companions.
Captain Rogers, ot the Boyal Navy,
captured the brlgantlne commanded by
Bookman, and taking her to Port Boyal,
Jamaica, the whole crew was sentenced
to the gallows. Mary, however, disclosed her sex, and might have escaped
If a fever had not ended her adventurous
life.
Backman and eight ot his companions
were executed. The tate ot Anne Bonney Is unknown.—ITranelated Iron
"Ahoi."'
Abating the Cat Knlaanee,
A New York newspaper gives the following account of the Ingenious devloo
adopted to stop the nuisance, by a young
^■fellow whose sleep was broken by the
vooal performances of oats.
"The neighborhood in which the
young man Uvea Is one ot those most
abounding in eats. Allowing three oats
to eaoh household In several blocks
around, lt Is estimated that there Is a
contingent remainder ot several thousand eats, without owners or homes, who
disappear mysteriously In daytime, but
gather In the back yards and en the garden fences and arbors and shade trees
In that vlolttlty at sight, to Interchange
thoir views on the current topics ot the
day, exercise their vocal accomplishments and Indulge In free fights.
" The young man fastened on the top
jf a fonoo aboard wide enough for ths
stringing upon lt In parallel lines ol sis
wires connected with s> strong galvasia
battery is his room.
i  " Tne board was a tempting ono foe
cat promenades, but the wires wero so
tanged that lt was not possible tor ft
it to walk over them without touching
[two at once and getting a powerful eleo-
rlc shook when the switch key turned

The first two cats that had the ex-
rlente got It together) asd west op
the air with a simultaneous howl ot
„ In and terror.   They clawed the atmosphere while flying, but whes they
lauded In the yard lay for a few moments as lt they were paralysed.  Then
they got up, shook tholrpaws as tt trying tnem, and, with adrigbud luvk. mi.
round,  stole quietly from sight and
rearing.
" Next a big torn oat was allowed to
rot on the middle ot the board, where
ie sat down on his haunches, looked at
he moon, and began hla favorite ana.
Ho got the current solidly and went up

" My dear," said lbs. Germing, addressing her husband at the breakfast table, " I am going to discharge
the hired girl, for she does sot do to
please me.
"Well, I hope you won't discharge
her until we get another girl to take her
place."
"Yes, I will; asd you'll see that
we get along just as well. lam
going to do her work myself Now
don't you say a word for I'm going
to do it."
Mr. Gensing said nothing, for, to
tell the truth, the economical idea
pleased him, but the next morning he
could not see his wife get np and make
fires, so he made them.
Then he brought water, and milked
the cow, in foot discharged nearly all
tho duties of the hired girl,    <
" My dear," Crossing's wife said a
few days later, "I told you that
we oould got along just as well
without a hired girl, What's the use
of wasting money?
"Now we are getting along just as
well as can be without a word of
complaint. Yon have never gives me
credit for what I can do.

The lecturer had penetrated Into the

He had some doubts about securing an
audience in ono town, and he communicated his tears to the hall proprietor.

Thus encouraged, the lecturer sent
out his bills. But his tears were realized, the audlonco being of the thinnest kind, though lt wasn't halt as thin

No Tkace Yet.—Our readers will
remember that some time last full two
gentlemen residing on Westham Island, Messrs. Robertson and McNnb,
left their homes on a hunting expedition up the northern coast, and havo
never been heard of since. Mr. Chas.
Robertson, a brother of ono of tho
missing men, of Hamilton, Ont., who
has been in tho province during the

the northern coast, in company with a
friend, in hope of finding some trace of
the fate of his lost brother. So far his
search has boon fruitless.

seemed to him a icuBonablo price, ho
hired a number of Chinamen to do tho
job. Unless tho work isiinusually heavy,
SOcts. an hour scorns tn ua very fair
compensation, and wo think thero wns
nothing to justify tho striko. All tho
same, we shall probably hear this incident magnified by some Vancouver
people into an insult and an outrage.

Settling the Jubilee Bills.—It
has been stated that the expenses connected with jubilee entertainment of
the Queen's guests amount to close
upon £200,000; that the Queen is
anxious that this outlay be reimbursed
by tho country, and, most preposterous
of all these myths, that hor Majesty's
visit to Hatfield wns connected with a
settlement by voto uf parliament of
this bill. 1 am enable to say that tho
total amount of tho royal jubilee expenses will not exceed £55,000, and it
was long ago settled by the Queen that
this outlay should bo defrayed out of
the surplus from tho civil list which
has accumulated during tho last three
years. There has never been a shadow
of an idea of obtaining a parliamentary
grant for these exceptional expenses.

tho citizens of New Woatminster, I bog
to tender to your honor and Mrs, Nelson
a lioarty welcome to our city, and to
offer you. our congratulations on your
promotion to the honorable position you
now occupy. Wo desire to say that your
promotion is particularly gratifying to
us in consequence of your having been
chosen from among the early pioneers of
our city, and having been so long identified with many of the industries ami
enterprises of the province; and wo
gratefully acknowledge that in this instance merit has been recognized and rewarded. Our confidence iu your ability
and dcBirc to advance tho interests of the
province remains unshaken, and we aro
suro that you will fill the honorable and
responsible position to which you havo
been appointed with credit to yourself
and advantage to tho public interest.
Hoping you and Mrs. Nelson will enjoy
your visit to tlio Royal City, and that
many years ol usefulness may bo added
to your Uvea, I am, your honor's obedient servant (Signed) Bom'. Dickinson, Mayor; J. A. ROB1SSON, C. M. C.
His honor was pleased to mako tho
following reply:
To the Mayor and Citizens of the City of
New Westminster:
Mr. Mayor and Gextlkmex,—I beg
to tender you my heartiest thanks for
your kindly welcome of Mrs. Nelson and
myself to the city of New Westminster
on this my first visit after my appointment to tlio high position of lieutenant
governor of the provinco. Many years
ago I was much more intimately connected with your city, being tticji for a number of years a resident amongst you. Iu
the year 1S70 you did tne the honor of
sending mc as your representative to the
last parliament of the colony prior to its
confederation with the Dominion of
Canada. In tho year 18"2 you sent me
as your first representative to the nonunion houso of commons, and I had the
honor of being in that body the first advocate for tbo construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway by the valley of the
Lower I'raaor. In 1873 you again conferred tho honor of returning me by accumulation to the commons of Canada
during my absence from the province
I subsequently became your representative in tbo seuate of Canada,
which position I resigned to become
the lieutenant governor of tho provinco.
For ull these important positions I have
been aided by your support and good
wishes, and I can assure you that tho
interest I havo always felt in tho welfare
of your oity ond district in both senate
and commons has not been abated by the
fact of my being called upon to occupy a
higher position in connection with the
province generally; but hiBtcad thereof I
will' continue to feel an enhanced prido

Opium smuggling.

Victoria, July 28.—Tho rumor in
circulation last night with reference
to serious irregularities on tlio part of
tho part of tho baggage-master of tho
C. P. N. Co. turns out to bo truo, lt
has been known for a long time that a
considerable quantity of refined opium
was finding its way from this city
across the bordor. It appeal's that tho
customs officials bore nro provided
with custom houso baggago tags.
Those aro supnosed to bo placed ou
baggago going from one point: in the
United States to another through Canadian territory. Latoly thero has been
considerable going through thore via
Canadian Pacific Railway. Raggage-
master Herring lias bean in the habit
uf attaching theso tags for the customs
officials. All packages aro weighed
and excess charged at excess baggago
rates, Not until last night was any
irregularity suspected. To custom
lunuui officii* Hunter, Herring mado a
clean breast of the wholo affair this
morning. On Monday last a man
named McLean came to him with two
trunks nnd a couple of rough travelling boxos, and induced him to attach
tho customs tags thereto. They woro
addressed UT, S., Chicago" At Winnipeg they would be transferred to
the Kind-sou branch of the C. P. It,
nnd thenee to the Manitoba & St
Paul road. Once across tho border,
it would be difficult to detect such irregularities. McLean has lately gone
over the ground. On this occasion
his excess baggage, which lie palmed
off as samples, was 1,400 pounds,
which, at an averago value of $8.50 n
pound, amounts to $11,000. Tbe
duty on refined opium entering the
United States is $10 per pound. It
is believed tho contraband article is
sold in tho States at much less than
918.60 por pound, the price at which
the drug is bought for hero
and the duty Added. When baggage is passing from one country to
another in bond, tho ownor cannot
interfere with it, or have access thereto. Hence the value of tho custom
tag is one of importance, and should
bo most rigidly guarded. It is said
Herring hus beon using tags for trunks
and boxes, ostensibly through baggagj,
but in reality from this city. The
very fact of such a tag being attached
to a trunk or box was a passport to its
entering the States without inspection.
How long tho practice has been going
on it is difficult to tell. Herring sur
rendered to Hunter tho YosBinito's
excess baggage manifest, which is
signed by Mr. Mooro, Vancouver.
This gavo tho customs officers a clue
to the contraband baggago and check
number of each piece. Despatches
were at onco sent to tlio Winnipeg collector instructing him to return tlio
pieces here. Tho shipment is liable to
be confiscated, as it left this port without being reported, and under the
regis of the custom houso tag. Herring's version of the affair is that the
present is bis first and only offence.
He states McLean presented a couple
of through tickets from San Francisco
to Chicago. He claims a well known
gentleman in the upper country is implicated in tho transaction, and it wns
in consequence of his having "given
tho whole business away," that Herring sont in his resignation, and had
tho baggago recalled. He further
states he is prepared to suffer any punishment adjudged him. From remarks
dropped it is certain Herring knows
more than he 1b likely to tell about
this opium business. Herring has
been in tho transportation business
many years. He was always an obliging, affablo officer, and has many
friends on the Fraser river. It is
likely an investigation will bo held
into the affair, when all tho facts will
bo mado publio.
To lessen mortality and stop the inroads ot disease, use Northrop & Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure.
For all diseases arising from Impure
Blood, such as Pimples, blotches, Biliousness, Indigestion, etc., etc., it has no
equal. Mrs. Thomas Smith, Elm, writes:
"1 am using this medicine for Dyspepsia.
I have tried many remedies, but this is
the only one that has done me any good.
The captain of the steamship Champagne, which lately made the fastest
trip ever recorded across the Atlantic,
claims that the speed of his vessel is
duo to an improvement made by himself in tho propelling screw. The pitch
was lessened so oaio cut the water at
a smaller angle, reducing the resistance and increasing the revolutions.
Hope k Bitleau, druggists, Codar Rapids, Iowa, write: We have never sold
any medicine that gives suoh satisfaction
to the consumer and pleasure to the seller as Dr. Thomas' Ecleotric Oil. Wc can
refer you to numbers that have used it
for diptlierta with entire satisfaction and
success.
" Gontlcmon, I cannot porinU a
question of moro revenue to be considered alongside a question of morals,
but givo me a sober population, not
wasting their earnings on strong drink,
and I will know where to get my
revenue."—Gladstone to the Brewers of

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
THE AIM OF " GRIP" Is to set forth, In
in un Impartial and Independent mnn-
nor, tho passing events of Canadian political and social life. Its Cartoons apouk
moro definitely and moro pleasingly than
who'e columns of editorial. In this pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic stylo
of presontii'jga subjoct,tho wholo situation Is revealed at a glance. The success
of Grip shows how woll this fact Is appreciated—Its Cartoons ou the passing political events of the ^country being even
more eagerly sought after than the (imsto
nnd humorous letter-press of the pa, >r,—
though .the latter Is ennui to that or any
Kimluu*publleiitloii on the continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tenBlvo improvements for 1S8B. The old
cover is to be discarded, and. tho Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and bo
printed on heavy toned and calendered
paper,—ovory number being so art lstlcai ly
executed as to compare favorably with
the best papors on the continent. Tho
advls. will bo compressed ami more systematically arranged; while similar Improvements will be made as to tho letterpress. A new aud handsome doslgn will
adorn the title page; white tho Cartoons
will certainly not sutler from extensive
improvements In tlie artistic department.
Tnopricoof Grip will hereafter be$2a
yoar, which is lowor than that of any
paper of Its kind lu America,—most of
them selling for 8».  "'•"'" ■ '■- *
