NUMBER 31
Jailp ittti«fc-€-jltt-mbian
Saturday Evening, Sept. 4. ISM.
Eastern Cniiiuliim competition is
kely to prove veiy distressing to
ie lethargic merchants of Victoria.
jese gentlemen have never been
oubled by an early closing agita-
an. They have been in the habit
opening/out for business about
i o'clock, reading the Colonist
id "having a pipe",in the most
surely manner, and finally, existed with the exertion of stand-
behind the counter for two or
ree hours, putting up shutters
rut four o'clock. Lately some
ncession has been mude to eastern
i, and the stores have with re-
ctance been kept open for two
rurs longer. The advent of a few
lmerican-Ohinaraen!'; will compel
jese worthies to hustle in order to
rtain even their daily bread.—
'innipeg Sun.
We have from time to time in
Dominion news chronicled the
ogress niade in Canada by Colonels
.venliill and Phillips and Surgeon
atthews, of the Royal Horse
uards, who were recently sent to
quire into tho possibilities of pursing in the Dominion horses for
e purpose of the imperial army,
would seem > that these officers
e sparing no pains to ascertain the
act resources of the Dominion in
lis respect, and it is also pleasing
note that in some parts of Cana-
ipeoially in Toionto, every
rxiety has been shown to provide
class of cavalry and artillery
rrses now sought after: It is,
rwever, more than probable, from
i reports that have come to hand,
it for the present time, at all
ents, the purchase of Canadian
rses for remounts in the imperial
vice will not prove very exten-
e. At the same time it must be
nembered that whether the in
iry prove immediately successful
not, it cannot but result bene-
lally to Canadian farmers, leading
im to realize that they may, by a
■etui attention' to the question of
'se-breeding, secure an almost uh-
lited demand at remunerative
ces in the mother country.—Can-
'an {London) Gazette.
The attention of Canadian manu-
turers of agricultural implements
iy be profitably turned to China
a possible market for a certain
t of manufactures. If any prods whatever of China find their
across the Dominion en route
England, agricultural implement!
various sorts can | be shipped in
jurn from here better, because the
itance is less, than from England;
d, according to the report of Con-
I Jamieson on the trade of Kin-
iang for the past year, a certain
de might be done, by English
nufucturers itt simple articles of
ricultural   use, such  as  spades,
and pruning-hooks, if made of
proved shape and quality. Prun-
-■hooks are in universal use dur-
winter for cutting tlie brush-
sod and grass which cover all un.
iltivated land. Manufacturers in
rgland are lavish in distributing
de circulars where steam-ploughs,
eam-pumps, steam threshing-mills,
tent harrows, and so forth, are
bred for sale at tempting prices;
d they are disappointed, perhaps,
at no orders come from China,
ut all these articles are out of
ace there, The average holding
the Ohinese peasant is about two
res, and all his implements are of
e simplest kind. For these there
an unlimited demand; and if it is
the power of the English or
nudum manufacturers to lay them
wn at a price to compete with the
tive article, an immense trade
ght be done. A mere quotation
prices in China would, however;
nsul Jamieson points out, bo of
value without specimens of the
jicles themselves. British manu-
sturers have not yet reached, as a
itter of fact, more than one-tenth
the Chinese population—namely,
i upper and well-to-do classes.
1 the remaining nine-tenths are
clothed and shod—still eat,
ink, sleep, and work—as if for-
;n trade, so far as they are direct-
concerned, were non-existent—

thc o. P. R. Traffic.
The volume of travel wliich the
0. P. R. is said to be creating around
Port Moody is quite remarkable. A
gentleman who lias been over there
for n fow days this week states thnt
both on Monday and Tuesday last
week over $2,000 was ta'ken in at
the tickot office, and the average
daily receipts are very little below
that figure. The same gentleman
also states that a great many of
those arriving from the east enquire
for New Westminster, and are
greatly disappointed at not being
nble to see it us they Imd 'calculated
on before coining to the province.
\V hen the branch line is open for
traflic there is no reason why tlie
trains and the Victoria steamer
should not connect ot this city. The
lack of sufficient accommodation at
Port Moody is a source of some inconvenience to travellers and detracts a great deal from the otherwise desirable route. If travellers
came this way they would have
much better accommodation and
could see our fine river and the
magnificent canneries built upon it,
and these, we are sure, would be a
great object of interest to our eastern friends, who have no proper conception of their size and capabilities. Travellers coming this way
might also see some of the best
farms in the country and would go
away witli their idea that the province was a sea of mountains considerably modified. It is a mistake
to run passengers down to the inlet, transferring them to a boat
tliere, hurrying them across the
gulf of Georgia to Victoria, and
then back by tho same route.
Strangers coming to the country
should have the opportunity of going down or returning by this route,
and something like this must be
done if the great national highway
is to accomplish its' purpose. ■
More Foolish Talk.
Our cotemporary of the Guardian
this morning returns to the branch
railway with some more calmness
but without giving proof of any
additional wisdom. He attempts to
ridicule the reference made to Tor-
onto, a city whose prosperity and
development have not beeu exceeded
anywhere in the"eastern provinces,
by saying that Toronto was built
Wore the railways, and that the
railways were only constructed to
facilitate the trade of the city. Our
cotemporary's remark adds force to
our position instead of weakening
it. Has not New Westminster been
built up without tho railway to be
the second largest and richest city
in the province! New Westminster
would undoubtedly have continued
to be an important city without the
railway. It is not dependent on
the railway for its existence any
more than Toronto was, but the railway will doubtless do much to improve its trade and increase its development. Toronto was a city of
less importance in Ontario beforo it
had railway connection -than New
Westminster is in British Columbia, and for its remarkable growth
it iB beyond question very much indebted 'to its railways. We pointed
out the other duy that none of thc
great Canadian railways terminated
in Toronto, and that circumstance
has not prevented its rapid growth
and expansion. We are of opinion
that the same results will follow in
the case of New Westminster. Wo
want railway connection with llurrard Inlet wliere the ocean terminus of the 0. P. R, will be, so that
this city may be reached from that
terminus without a roundabout journey of 30 miles. Our cotemporary
declares that an extension of the
railway beyond this city would work
ruin to our interests, but ho makes
no attempt to produce evidence in
support of the declaration. This
may bo his individual opinion or it
may not. If it is, we disagree with
him; if it is not, there is no room
for debute. Our cotemporary has
been in the habit of making his
expressed opinions coincide with his
hobbies to such nn extent that they
cannot be expected to be received
always without question. The advisability of an extension is certainly a proper subject for discussion, and we should be quite willing
to discuss it with our cotemporary
if he could possibly confine himself
to thc question without continually
making an exhibition of himself by
switching oft' on personal matters
which have nothing whatever to do
with the subject. But we aro
afraid it would be useless to expect
om- cotemporary to do anything
so reasonable and sensible as that.
Tub Laws ot thk Mudbs and Persians ware not mora immutable than
tlioso of nature. If we transgress thom
we suffer. Sometimes, howevor, we
break them inadvertently. Damages
frequently take the form of Dyspepsia,
Constipation and Biliousness, which can
bo easily repaired with Northrop and
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, the Groat Blood Purifier uid
renovator of the system.

i Referring to the Columbian, our
jOhuroh-st. contemporary thia morning
uys: " We have the best reason for
knowinr that the daily is boing dropped daily." Of course it is—the carrier drops it daily at a large number of
houses in the city, and the number ia
inoreuing. But, of course, our co-
temporary meant to say that every
day some subscribers were stopping
their pspers. Now, will he. bo good

Ayer's Ague Cure, when used according to directions, is warranted to eradicate from the system all forms of malarial

Goon Look— Admiral Sir Michael
Culme-Seymour, who hu been shooting in the north arm of Burrard Inlet,
returned on Thursday with three
mountain sheep. The admiral is quite
proud of hts success.
From the North.—Tho str. Barbara Boscowitz arrived at Victoria
from Port Simpson on Thursday morning. She brought 6,537 cases and
238 barrels of salmon, besides other
freight. There is no nows of importance from the north-west.
Chuiujh op Enolano.— The Rev.
A. O. Thynne, roctor of Kilkhampfon,
Cornwall, and canon of Truro cathedral, will preach to-morrow, in the
morning at St. Mary's, Sapperton, in
the afternoon at Black's hotel, Hastings, and in tho evening at Holy Trinity church in this eity.
Can You Reau ?—If so, do not be
afraid to try tho door of tho Reading
Room, as the rain makes it too cold to
leavo the door open. Parties who paid
for August, in adwnee, may call and
pay for September now, as everything
is carried on in advance principles.

Those Tbleokams.—It was not our
intention to go into a controversy with
the local organ about telegrams. If
he really did receire that wonderful
extra by telegraph from New York,
" at great expense," u claimed, he is
more foolish than we supposed. With
respect to the telegrams published in
the Daily Columbian, we need add
nothing to what hu already been said.
The telegrams are the regular associated press despatches, and they come
direct from Seattle to the Columbian,
and not from Victoria. The fact is,
the Columbian appears before the
Viotoria evening papers, and could
not, if it would, receive the afternoon
despatches from them.
Telkgkams.— The New Westminster
Colnmoian bouts that it receives more
telegraphic despatches than any other
papor In the province... The Colonist
has exclusive use of the morning and
the -Times exclusive use of the evening
despatches, and both of these, it
claims, are published | in the Coium-
(limi. Would our oheeky cotem please
tell the public how much it pays for
its despatches, or how many it would
Set did it not hare the privilege of the
rop despatches sent to the Victoria
papers?—Vic. Times.—It doesn't matter how much we pay for telegrams
any more than how much the Times
pays. The fact remains that the Columbian receives eaoh day the some
amount of telegrams as the Times and
Colonist together, nnd it receives thom
before they go to Victoria—and the
Times knows this and cannot deny it-
Advent of a Bonapabtb.—Among
the distinguished persons soon, to arrive in this province is Lucien Napoleon Bonaparte Wyse, who is a grandson of Lucien Bonaparte, brother of
Napoleon the First. This gentleman
reached Winnipeg last Monday on his
way to British Columbia. Before
crossing the mountains he will visit
several paces in Manitoba and the
Northwest. To a Sun reporter he said
tbat if, after investigation and inquiry,
the prospects seemed satisfactory, he
proposed to invest considerable money
in the country. " Indeed," he said,
-' I have all along taken deep interest
in the development of the resources of
Canada, and might yet take up my
residence in tbe Dominion. To aid
me in my present tour of Inquiry I
hare taken along with me Mr. P. J.
Losa, of New York, who is a civil engineer and wu connected with me
when making out the surveys of the
Panama canal. I have been all
through Central and South America,
and made one or two trips to Canada,
although this is my first visit to Winnipeg. I have during those tours
closely examined th. more principal of
the public works in the places through
which I passed."
Attempted Suicide.—Early yesterday morning a deliberate attempt at
suicide wu made in thia oity by Capt.
Dodd, of the British barque Nanaimo.
Tho family of the captain reside at the
corner of Fort and Cook streets, and
hero tho captain also stops when ho is
ashore. At the timo stated, he fastened himself in a small room in the
liouso, and when sho made the request,
rofuaod to upon tho door to his wifo.
When sho finally forced an entrance
the terrible sight presented itself of
her husband standing in tlio room cov-
ored with blood. Using a pocket
knife he had ondeavinod to sover tlio
jugular vein, but had only succeeded
in outting the lurnyx. Finding that
this did not succeed he liad cut a gash
in his left arm and and another in his
wrist. A clergyman wu sent for, and
also a doctor, but the services of the
former were not called into requisition.
Upon being questioned, Capt. Dodd
ascribed his act to tho effects of drink;
but this explanation wu not credited,
the captain being but a very moderate
drinker. Ho is known, howevor, to
have brooded somewhat over religion,
and the fact that ho and his wifo were
of different religious beliefs may also
haro troubled him, though how such a
desperate act could bo supposed to
remedy matters it is difficult to imagine. Tlie patient wm remored to the
marino hospital, where his hurts, which
ure not thought to bo of a fatal nature,
nre reooiring attoutiun. Cant. Dodd
hu had charge of tho burk Nanaimo
(built in tho city of thnt namo ovor
four years ago) ovor sinco sho was
launched, and liu novor exhibited any
sign of mental aberation. Oapt. Woir
hu boon appointed to the command of
the vessol, whioh is now loading at
Nanaimo.—Colonist Sep. ,1,
Mr, l'arpetus lloileau, Ottawa, says;
"I was radically cured of piles, from
which I bad been suffering for over two
months, by the use of Thomas' Kclectric
Oil. I used It both Internally and externally, taking it in small doses before
meals and on retiring to lied. In ono
week I was cured, and have had no trouble since.   I believe tt saved my life,"

D. Sullivan, Malcolm, Ontario, writes:
"I have been Belling Dr. Thomu' Eclectrie Oil for some years, and have no hesitation in saying that it has given better
satisfaction than any other medicine I
hare ever sold.   I consider it the only
Sstent medicine that cures more than it
r recommended to care." Unprincipled

Thomu' Eclectrie Oil. Do not be deceived. ^^^^^^^^^^^
A Floating Terror.
New York, Aug. 30.—A sub-marine
torpedo boat, invented by Professor
J. H. L. Tuck, was on Saturday tested
and proved a practical success in the
presence of a largo party of gentlemen
interested. They went aboard the
steamer Chance Shot at Eighty-sixth
street, Nortii River. The sub-marine
vessel lay liko a gigantic turtle lashed
to the steamer's side. She has been
christened the Peacemaker. She wu
constructed at the yawl of C. H. Dela-
mater & Co., and is 30 feet long, witli
a breadth of beam 8| feet and a depth
of 7} feet Tlie bow and stem taper
off from amidships, and the forward
end of tho vessel is surmounted by a
dome twelve inches high, which is set
with glass, and just large enough to
get his head into. Admission to the
boat is through a circular scuttle aloft
of the dome. At tho atom there is a
propeller and a rudder of ordinary
■union, and two horizontal rudders
with wliich the boat may bo deflected
up or down. The interior is half-filled
with machinery and mechanical devices,
including a powerful little Westing-
house engine. Compressed air is stored
in six-inch pipes, running around the
interior, and arrangementa ore made
by which air may be aupplled by
chimicals. A gauge registers tlie
depth of the vessel beneath the surface. Light is furnished by an incandescent electric lamp. At yesterday's
experiment Captain John G. Holland
and Engineer John H. Kline slipped
down into the iron hull and fastened
the airtight scuttle. Then the captain's head appeared in the look-out
dome and the iron fish started up the
rivor. She hod not gone 100 feet boforo she dipped hor nose into the water
and gradually slid out of sight beneath
tho ruffled surface. The spectators
anxiously watohed tlio spot where she
disappeared for three minutes, when
sho reappeared about a quarter of a
mile to leeward and headed towards
them. The Sylvan Glen wu coming
down the rivor only a hundred yards
above, and her captain wu much surprised at the sudden appearance of
the iron monster. He tooted his
whistle vigorously, and put his wheel
aport, whereat the torpedo-boat kicked
up its wheels and again disappeared.
The Peacemaker, reached a depth
yesterday of forty feet, and obtained a
fair rato of siloed. Tho torpedo portion of the experiment wu not tried.
It is designed to use torpedoes attached
together by a chain and fastened to
cork magnets which will attach themselves to the iron or steel sheathing of
a vessel to be destroyed. They are to
be fired by electricity after tho torpo-
do boat has reached a safe distance.
Professor Tuck is working on a device
by which he claims he will be enabled
to leave it at a depth of forty feet and
return again in safety.

This Afternoon's Despatches.
Special to the luluniblan.
Paris, Sept. 4.—The German colonel
wbo haa been travelling throughout
France under tho name of Saxo, and who
was recently arrested on suspicion of
being a spy, has been released, the authorities l«ing unable to obtain anflicient
evidence to warrant his further detention.
Bkiu-in, Sept. 4.—DeGiers, the Russian minister, has hurriedly departed for
St, Petersburg.
Bucharkst, Sept. 4.—The Roumanian
cabinet threatens to resign if Alexander
abdicates.
Paris, Sept. 4.- It la reported that
within tlie past few days 50 Russian officers have arrived separately at Sofia and
placed themselves in communication with
the SeankotF faction of the revolutionist
party.
Charmwto.v, Sept. 4.*—Last night's
shock has served to greatly impair confidence. Nearly all tlie people slept or
remained out of doors last night. The
Hi-eat dread now is the approach of the
equlnoxiul gales, wliich are always disastrous in Charleston. It U estimated that'
every house in tbe city has liad its foundations shattered by the earthquake.
Walla have been rent, chimneys and
steeples are off their square, and tliere is
nothing sound about the.city. If an
equinoxiul gale of usual severity should
strike the city before considerable repairs
can be made, nearly every house would
be blown down. The gale comes sometimes as late as the first week in September, hut laat year it came in tbe last
week in August. Thus it will be seen
that the city is in imminent danger, At
the present moment tlie equinox would
cause suoh a crashing of timber, brick
and mortar aa was never before heard of.
The -temperature always changes so as to
warn people tbat a storm is at hand.
Tlie effects of a week of storm and rain
upon houses, women and children would
be appalling. Six ladies are reported to
be dying from the effects of fright. The
effort made early yeaterday morning to
clear away the debris haB been abandoned, and -people are settling back Into the
melancholy of yesterday. Two aldermen
of each ward with three citizens have
been appointed to condemn unsafe buildings, fierkely, chairman of the committee, has entered upon his duties. He
knows not what to do, where to begin or
where to stop. He freely declares that
if a fire had swept the city it would have
been preferable, for in tliat case the insurance would liave helped to repair the
waste places.
Toronto, Sept. 4.*—A special from
Ottawa says: As a result of the correspondence which has been going on for some
time past between Canada and the Imperial authorities, orders have been issued by the British admiralty office to
the commanders of all Britisli war vessels
now along the Atlantic and gulf coasts to
report at once to Halifax for duty. They
will be used to assist the Canadian cruisers In protecting the fisheries and also
to look after the protection of the Newfoundland fishery.
Charleston, Sept. 4.—A sensation
was made to-day by a falling shower of
pebbles in the lower part of tho city.
The first fall was at 7:30 this morning,
and the second at about 11 o'clock. Tbey
wero seen to fall in a slanting direction
from south to nortii. There are morsels
of flint among them, and ure plainly
abraded and worn by thc action of water. Some few have sharp fractures, and
have evidently been recently broken.
Tho fact of the fall of pebbels is vouched
for by several trustworthy persons. The
bulk of them fell in and around the News
and Courier office.
Vienna, Sept. 4,—Tho Neuf Frie
Prem publishes a despatch from Sofia
stating that M. Karteveloff, head of the
revolutionary party which deposed Prince
Alexander, has been released from police
supervision. The Russian party in Sofia
say that Major Gucff, who took a leading part in the coup d'etat, had resolved
at the time of the deposition upon killing
Alexander, and was prevented from carrying out his resolve by the intervention
of the Russian consul. It is not believed that Prince Alexander will abdicate,
but that he will summon a Bulgarian assembly and submit the question of abdication or continuing on the throne to
tliat body for decision. Powerful influences are being exerted from several
different quartern to bring about a union
of Bulgaria, Servia, and Roumania.
Washington, Sept. 4.—The Hydro-
graphic office has received a letter from
Capt, Leo Veget, of the str. City of Pa-
taka, briefly describing tiio eflects of
the earthquake at sea. He had
just left Charleston aud was
about 12 miles off the harbor of Port
Royal, in 8J fathoms of water, He experienced a terrible rumbling sensation,
which lasted 74 minutes. There had
been quite a heavy sea from the southeast, but when the rumbling began tho
wave motion ceased and the waters remained perfectly calm until the noise
seemed to end, when tlie swell was again
manifest. The wind was southeast and
light; weather cloudy; barometer 30:01;
thermometer 80. The sensation, Capt.
Vogle Bays, resembled that upon a snip
scraping a pebbly bottom. The ships
vibrations were very great. The lighthouse board received a report from
Charleston to tho effect that the main
tower of Harris island light is  cracked.

sceiinds, and were very heavy.
Washington, Sept. 3.—Tlie following dispatch was received by cable today from Queeii "Victoria: "Balmoral,
Sept. 3rd, 188l>. To tho President of
the U.S.: I dosiro to express my profound sympathy with the sufferers by
the lato earthquakes, and await with
anxiety full intelligence, which I hopo
may show the effect to have been less
disastrous than reported.—-TheQuben.
Washington, Sent. 3.--About 11
o'clock to-night another shock of earthquake was felt along the Atlantic coast.
It was not attended by any damage so
far as can be learned, but it was strong
enough to cause a stampede from their
instruments of tho telegraph operators
in Charleston, Augusta, Columbia, and
perhaps other places. The shock was
felt from Jacksonville to Washington.
It was plainly perceptible in Washington, but not so strongly as on Tuesday
night.
Charleston, Sopt. 3.—At one minute to 11 o'clock to-night another terrific shock of earthquake passed over
the city. Consternation prevailed,
and people camping in the public
squares arc singing and praying.
Raleigh, Sept. 3.—At 11 o'clock
to-night a, well developed shock of
earthquake wns felt, proccded by a
light rumbling noise.
Augusta, Sopt. 3.—At 10:40 p.m.
anothor shock was distinctly felt. Thc
streets are again filled with people.
WiLStiNGTOX, Sept. 3. — Another
distinct but not severo shock was felt
here at 11p.m. The usual alarm was
created.
WiLLiAMsroiiT, Sept. 3.—Word has
been received hero uf *i\ sickening
calamity which occurred hero about
midnight lost night, oi miles above
Soneestown on the lino of the Wil-
liamsport it North Branch railway,
where a number of Hungarian laborers
are employed on an extension road.
A shanty in wliich ovor 25 people were
lodged caught fire from tho overturning of a stovo while the men were
asleep. Sixteen men slept on the
second floor. Those on jjhe first floor
and all on tlw second floor but sevon
succeeded it getting out. Tho others
wore left to their fate and were roasted alive in the burning shanty. Their
charred remains were afterwards found
in the ruins. The men who escaped
were so horror-stricken that they made
no efforts to save their companions.
Chareston, Sept. 3.—A sharp shock
of earthquako was folt near 11 o'clock
to-night. Two buildings fell. A
white woman was killed by the falling
of a wall this morning.
Richmond, Va., Sopt. 3.--At 11:30
to-night a shock of earthquake was felt
here. In some places in the upper
parts of the city it was as severo as
that of last Thursday, people in some
cases leaving their beds and rushing
into the streets. The oscillation is
said to have been very perceptible
from south-east to northwest. No
noise accompanied the shook,
Charleston, Sept. 3.—On Marion
square the sights and scenes baffle description. The colored people wore
unrestrained and committed all manners of riotous and frenzied excesses.
A report of what took place would
perhaps be considered blasphemous.
The firat object, and one that attracted
everybody's attention, was an assemblage of colored boys, about half a
dozen, wlm had fallen to the ground
in a paroxysm of religious frenzy.
Thoy wore grovelling with thoir faces
down in the gross and were singing
hymns. The hymn was "Angels are
rappin' at the door!" and tho refrain
wns: "Oh toll Noah to bil' on do ark,
MP on do ark, bil' on do ark?"
London, Sept. 3.—Tlie Daily Tele*
graph this morning, commenting on
the Bulgarian revolution, says: "Russia has already spent 18,000,000 francs
in Bulgaria. Just before the revolution the Russian consul at Sofia withdrew £70,000 in Turkish money from
a well-known eastern bank ostensibly
to endow religious communities
which nobody was aware were in
pecuniary straits."
London, Sept. 3.—The Daily News
says Lord Randolph Churchill has
achieved-.,liis maiden, success as leader
owing- -feo his conciliatory tono toward
the Parnellites.
Mr. T. 0. Berchard, public school
teaoher Norland, writes: "During tho
1881 I was much troubled with Biliousness and part of the time was unable to
attend to the duties of my profcsiion,
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cure was recommended
to me, and I have much pleasure in stat*
ing that I was entirely cured by using
one bottle. -I have not had an attack of
my old complaint since, and have gained
fifteen pounds in weight."
A statement was recently made by

Under a similar measure Georgia has

a total ofl37.
Time Klois In Wales.
London, Aug. 20.—A London cable
says: Tho tithe rout riots in North
Wales have assumed a serious aspect.
A similar outbreak occurred several
weeks ago. It is a quarrel botween
the people and the Established
Church. Nine-tenths of tho people of
Wales are non-conformists, and are
bitterly opposed to the Church of England, yet at least one thouaand clergymen of the Church of England have
their livings there. The present disturbances arise from the refusal of the
whole community of farmers at Llan-
armon to pay this year's tithe rent, unless the rector of the parish, Rev.
Evan Evans, would make reductions
of 25 por cent. Thia he declined to
do: whereupon the farmers told him
that he would have to get his money
thu best way he could. Evans hired a
lawyer to distrain for lua tithes. A
few days ngo three bailiffs from Cheater went over to seize tho property of
the revolting farmers, whereupon tho latter armed themselves and drove the bailiffs off.
Evans and his wifo wero compelled to
flee, and those people who had paid
the tithes were serenaded witli a beating of tin pans ovory night by tlio
furious mob. Tlie bailiffs having
failed, Mr. Whaley, auctioneer at
Chester, wns employed to gu out to
Llanariiion and sell the proporty of tho
farmers who had refused to pay. Ho
arrived on Monday with tho clerk of
the rector's solicitor. In the meantime hundreds of colliers from the
neighboring mines marched up in a
body to assist tho fanuois. As tho
solicitor's clerk went to enter the yard
of a man named Bunch ho was struck
by a collier and knocked down, and
afterward escorted bnck home. Tlie
auction was not held and Whaley returned to Chester empty handed.
Theso iniquitous tithes will afford an
opportunity yet for some groat reformer to spread his name on tho page of
history. ^^^^^^^^^^^

A SHOWER OF FISHES IH NEBRASKA.
Ou the 14th of June last tho people
of Harvard, a town in. Clay county.
Neb., were startled by a rainstorm,
which was accompanied by a fall of
(tshes, apparently from the sky. TheBe
fishes, which were alive, full in large
quantities. Many of them were picked
up by residents of the place and preserved in aquaria or in alcohol. Mr.
May, fish commissioner of tlie state of
Nebraska, happening to bo in the
neighborhood of Harvard, secured
some of thu fishes, and as he had business with Prof. Baird in thia city,
brought the fish with him to Washing-
tun for the purpose of having their
identity fixed. A Star reporter inspected tho fish yeBterday in Dr.
Tarletou H. Bean's laboratory, next
the Smithsonian. Thero were hnlf a
dozen young fish, about an inch nnd a
half in length each, preserved in alcohol.
'■- Wo often hear of its raining
fishes," aaid Dr. Bean, as the Star reporter examined the bottle containing
the fishes, " but this is a case about
which thero is no doubt, and whicli
proves that tho stories ubout showers
of fish are not mytlucnl. I am glad
that we have had opportunity, not
only to prove the fact that fishes are
rained down, but to investigate and
explain what appears to be out of tlie
natural order of things. These fish
prove to .be a common species of that
region—the fat ■ head or black head
minnow. How did they come to fall
from the clouds ? The explanation is
simple. They had been taken up from
a stream ur cloud by cyclone notion
and carried through the air until thu
force of gravity or the rainstorm overcame the lateral motion and thoy descended with the rain to the ground.
As the tish were alive, it is probable
that they came from a stream near the
town. A cyclone, though, would take
a quantity of water up in a mass, and
the Hsh might he carried Borne distance
alive. These minnows are hardy, and
can live under most precarious circumstances. They live in sluggish streams
and have been found in water containing a large percentage of salt. We
had one that camo from an artesian
well, so they probably adapt themselves to subterranean streams. In
fact they seem to adapt themselves to
almost auy conditions, and hence it is
not surprising that they have a very
wide range, or distribution.
" This theory of cyclone action,"
continued the doctor, "explains the
diatribution of some species of fish
over regions sometimes separated by
natural obstacles, and which cannot
easily bo accounted for otherwise. Tho
young fish are carried through tho air
and deposited in other streams. This
theory is moro important when we consider that many regions whioh hnvo no
cyclone action now mny havo had it in
earlier poriodn. Fish of exactly Ihe
same spocios will be found iu places
far distant from each other. The long-
nosed sucker, common here, is found
in Alaska. The round whiti-lish or
Bhadwater of tho New Hampshire
lakes is found in tho Yukon river iu
Alaska, and also in the island of Knd-
iak, sixty miles from the shoro. The
little fish known ns silvers ides, tho
brook silveraides, has been known for
years in the Ohio and Mississippi valleys. Lately it has been found in
North Carolina and Florida, in an entirety different water system, separated by a mountain chain from its original habitat. Other instances of a similar character could bo mentioned, and
need an explanation, which is afforded
by the now established fact that fishes
are transported by cyclones. Mi.jht
not tho cyclone be a vnlunble auxiliary
to the fish commission V continued
Dr. Bean, with a smile, repeating the
?uestion of the Star reporter. " Well,
am afraid it would be like a bull in a
chirm shop. If we could only harness
the cyclone, now, ii might bu of some
service. It is a wonder that this
theory of c clone nction ns nn ngoht in
the distriliution of species has not received more attention. It has scarcely
been mentioned except hy Dr.
Stenrns."
