Oppasllan Grievances Ventilated.
In the provincial legislature tho
other icy Hon. Theo. Uarie made a
very clear and interesting statement
respecting two standing opposition
grievances. Speaking of the amendment to the address Mr. Davie said:
Two things are alleged: (1) That the
blunders of the government have
lost the precious metals within the
belt, or at all events impelled this
suit iu respect of them. (2.) -That
the alternative sections in the R. R
belt being the property of the pro/-
ince, have been forfeited by the settlement bill. He would deal with
each of these statements separately
and demonstrate how false and hollow they both were. First as to
the metals. Whatever be the true
construction of the settlement act
we are in no better or worse position in regard to the minerals than
under the original terms of union—
the language of the union affecting
the granting being identical so far
ns affects minerals—with the Yel
lowhead Pass grant in 1880 and the
grant in the settlement act. The
terms of union being a treaty it was
not competent for either contracting
party to alter the treaty. Then the
question resolved itself into this: Do
the precious metals pass to the Dominion under the language employed
in the terms of union I and upon
this question three of the judges of
the supreme court of Oanada held
that they passed to the Dominion,
whilst two, equally eminent judges,
have held that they belong to the
province. Judge Fournier, an eminent constitutional lawyer, at one
time minister of justice, who, before
the caso had been fully argued, had
given judgment against the province upon the appeal, and after
more exhaustive argument reversed
his judgment and was one of the
two giving judgment in favor of the
province. Yet in face of this authority and conflict of judicial opinion
the mover of the amendment has
the temerity to give his positive assurance that our case is hopeless.
There was only time to give n brief
sketch of the argument in favor of
the province: The British North
America act, by one section, declares
the land within the province to be
the property of the province, and by
a different section makes the precious metals aud royalties also the
property of the province. Bearing
in mind this distinction and the
recognized legal principle that under
a grant of land from the sovereign
precious metals and royalties never
pass, unless expressly mentioned,
the sovereign, that is the province,
under section 11 of the terms of
union, agreed to convey to the Dominion, in trust, to be appropriated
for railway purposes, the "lands"
along tbe line of the railway, but
made no mention of the mines or
royalties, which, it was therefore
contended, remain vested in the
original sovereign, the province. Tbe
only interest the Dominion has in
the lands is a trust for railway purposes, and when the Dominion, in
furtherance of the trust, has cold
the land, it loses further interest
therein. The purchaser holds it
from the province, and subject to its
title paramount. Then as to the
alternate sections, by the terms of
union, section 11, British Columbia
agreed to convey to the Dominion a
similar extent of public lands along
the lino of railway, throughout its
entire length in British Columbia
(not to exceed 20 miles on each side
of the line) as may be appropriated
for the same purpose by the Dominion, from the public lands of the
northwest territories and province
of Manitoba. The samo language
was used in the settlement act, except that in using the words, "as
may be appropriated, etc.," the settlement act employed the language,
"asprovided in section 11, terms of
union," which, of course, meant the
same thing. In order to ascertain,
then, what land the Dominion is entitled to within the railway belt, we
have to ascertain what land was appropriated for railway purposes by
the Dominion from the northwest
territories and Manitoba, and the
answer is to be found in clause 11
of the contract with the 0. F. R.
made by the government and enacted in 44 Vic, chap. 1, which appropriates 25,000,000 acres in favor of
the company. British Columbia (as
before shown) by the terms of union
agreed to convey to Canada a similar extent of public lands along the
line of the railway throughout its
entire length in British Columbia
(not to excoed, however, twenty
miles on each side thereof) as might
be appropriated for the same purposo by Canada from the public
lands in the territories and Manitoba. True it is that the Ilth clause
of the O. P.R. contract provides that
in the territories the land shall,
along tha line of railway, be taken
in alternate sections, and any deficiency in the 25,000,000 acres made
up from other lands in tho fertile
belt of the territories, but that fact
makes no difference in British Columbia—tho agreement British Columbia entered into wns not to grant
the same number of acres per mile,
nor to grant in British Columbia a
similar extent to that appropriated
by Canada along the railway in the
territories and Manitoba, but to
grant along the lino of railway in
British Columbia an extent, similar
to that appropriated in the territories and Manitoba, provided that
such grant should not in British
Columbia exceed a belt of twenty
miles on each side of the railway.
From Burrard Inlet to Kamloops,
whicli portion of the railway was
constructed by Canada, is 213
miles, and from Kamloops to the
summit of the Kicking Horse Pass,
at the eastern boundary of British
Columbia, is 295 miles, 508 miles in
all—equivalent to 13,004,800 acres.
So the entire belt, being less than
the 25,000,000 acres appropriated
in the territories and Manitoba, belongs to Oanada whether under
clause 11 of the terms of union, or
its corresponding claise in the settlement bill.

HE FKOSTIER OUTLOOK.
London, Feb. 12.—Next to the illness of the crown prince of Germany,
the question of the moment is whether
Russia will still persist in her policy
of Russian supremacy in Bulgaria in
spite of tho risks which it involves cf a
breach with Austria, and consequently
with Germany. The answer is that
Russia continues to increase her arm;
on her western frontier, and undoubtedly contemplates war either with.
Austria or Germany, ur with both.
The movement of Russian troops is
more extensive than would be needed
fr>r the purposes of defence, and cm
lirudly bo interpreted otherwise than
aB a menace. The present pence garrison of the frontier provinces of Warsaw, Wilna and Kieff, numbers 336,-
400 men, and 775 field guns. On the
same frontier the Germans have 102,-
000 men and 350 guns, and the Aus-
trians only 43,000 men and 110 guns.
On the frontier strips of Germany and
Russia, the Russians have 135,000
men, 25,500 horses, 280 guns, as
against 83,000 men, 16,000 horses and
250 guns on the German side. The
official figures for the Austrian frontier show a still greater superiority in
favor ol Russia. These figures are
given only to show thst the serious
strengthening of the Russian frontier
forces, must be regarded by her western neighbor as preliminary to a war
.with one or both of them which neither
of them has at present an; cause to
begin. The Russian government admits that troops are being moved to
the west and that the movement begun some time ago, is not ended. A
series of important movements of
Roumanian troops have taken place as
a measure of safety consequent upon
the massing of Russian troops on the
Roumanian frontier and the Turks are
hurrying the work of fortifying Adri-
anople. The massing of Russian
troops in Bessarabia can indicate nothing but an intention to attack
either Roumania or Bulgaria. In well
informed quarters the opinion prevails
tbat the opening of spring will see
either Russia on the march to assert
her rights in Bulgaria, or Princo Bismarck hint to Prince Ferdinand that
his abdication (if the Bulgarian throne
is necessary to tho interests of peace.

I.OXPON NEWS.
Loniion, Fob. 13.-10,000 pooplo
at Kuston square station to-day, welcomed Ex-Mayor Sullivan. William
O'Brien will be tendered a reception
by the representative English liberals
and radicals.   The weather is fine.
Gladstone's speech hss mado an excellent impression at St. Petersburg,
where great confidence in his polioy is
felt. His return to power is considered a guarantee of pence.
The Standard this morning says:
It would be well for all Europe to be
convinced that it is the polioy of Lord
Salisbnry to support the alliance of
Germany, Austria and Italy so long as
it maintains peace, and should peaoe
be disturbed by any power foreign to
that alliance to throw all the influence
of England against the aggressor.
The sculling match between Ross
and Bubear ou the Thames, from
Putney to Mortlake, was won b;
Ross by two lengths. Tho closeness
of the contest caused tbe greatest excitement.
BLOCKS BUiUIgn,
Si. Paul, Feb. 13.—The blocks occupied by Foots, Sohults & Oo.,
wholesalo boots and shoes, and the
Ryan Drug Co., were burned this
morning, Loss 1300,000. The fire
wae first discovered in the Ryan block,
opposite the still Smouldering rulni of
the building whioh was burned several
weeks ago, entailing a loss of |300,»
000. The entire department waa nil'
ed out. The upper flours of the Ryan
block were occupied by Fonte, Schults
& Co., hoots and shoes, and despite
the efforts of the firemen to suppress
it tho fire soon had possession of the
entire upper portion of the building.
The Ryan drug company occupied
nearly the whole building. The fire,
as nearly as can be judged, originated
nn the fifth floor. At no time wu
any blaze visible and a dense volume
of smoke prevented the firemen from
getting through the several floors.

sueuvan's reception.
London, Feb. 13.—The reception of
T. D. Sullivan to-day wss all that tha
great preparations had led the public
to expect. Thousands of people were
afcet early to join in it. The weather
was not all that could have heen wish*
ed for, although the day opened clear
and cold. The temperature became
raw by noon and the sky overcast with
clouds, but this did not prevent vast
orowds from accumulating around the
eastern station. Twelve contingents
ofthe procession marched into the
eastern district and took Iheir stations
on all the streets adjacent or leading
to the station. It is estimated that
20,000 peoplo were present, and traffio
was seriously impeded all ^ttjnmae>) >
spite the efforts ol the police to Keep
the thoroughfares open. On the
platform of the station were the committees of reception, including nearly
all the liberals and radical memben of
parliament for London, and Messrs.
Blane, Bigger, and T. P. O'Connor.
A number of ladies lightened the
scene by their presence. Among them
were Mrs. Ashton Dilke, Mn. Reid,
Mn. Hamilton Bailie, of crofter fame,
and the Indies of the liberal federal association in a body. The tnin arrived at 1 o'clock. Mr. Sulivan, accompanied by Edward Harrington,
M.P., stopped upon the platform amid
the congratulations of friends and
cheen of the multitude. Mr. Sullivan
entered a carriage and was driven to
the residence of Prof. Stuart in Dids-
loigh Gardens, to take lunoh. When,
the carriages passed nut of the station
there waa an overwhelming shout of
welcome; people rushed upon the carriage, clambered up the steps, wheels
and box, and nearly overturned it by
the pressure from beneath. Mr.. Sullivan stood up bowing and amiiing at
well as he could, with both hands constantly in the grasp of aome frantic
people who had thrown themselves
upon him. With great difficulty he
reached the house of Prof. Stuart, the
balcony of which was covered with
rich cloths. Flags of Ireland, England and Scotland wen thrown to
breeze and the building was decorated
with streamers,

Monday  Evening, Feb. 13, IS88.
It iB of the greatest importance
that the constitutional privileges and
liberties of parliament should be
zealously guarded. The rights of
the opposition nre no less sacred
than thoso of tbo government and
the members who support it. There
is sometimes danger, however, of
obstruction by persons who concern
themselves not so much about principle unci fairness ns about taking
advantage of circumstances to embarrass their opponents. It is to be
feared that tlioso i'.mlor tho leadership of Mr. Humplli'oys nre in clanger of drifting into this condition of
frictions opposition. Tho objections
made to tho address were to a groat
extent frivolous, und show that
many members of tho opposition
have a very iniperfoct idea of tho
responsibility of tlieir position.
We aro glad to leurn that Mr.
James Whiteside is taking a very
active interest in the proposed artesian well. Mr. Whiteside holds
the belief thut there is very probably
money in the enterprise, nnd ho is
willing to show his faith by his
works. For some time he has been
in communication with persons who
have had practical experience with
such undertakings, nnd is endeavoring to inform himself respecting tlie
best kind of machinery to employ
and the probable cost. It is much
to be wished that these onquiries
may be satisfactory, and that un
undertaking which may be of the
greatest value to the city will not
collapse for lack of support. Persons whole means und enterprise
prompt thorn to aid in such a scheme
ought to sec Mr. Whiteside and let
him know how far he may safely
rely upon the citizens for support in
case it may be thought prudent to
begin operations.
We observe that the member for
Nanaimo has given notice that he
will bring before tho legislature a
resolution asking tho Dominion government to establish mail comniun
ication between Nanaimo unci Vancouver. If additional mail facilities
aro required across the struits they
ought to be provided, but we give
notice now that if it is proposed to
take away the mail subsidy between
Westminster nnd Nanuiino und
transfer it to tho proposed new
route, the people of this city and a
largo part of the district will very
emphatically object. The present
mail contract calls for a weekly
service each way, but Capt. Rogers
has intimated that while trade remains as good as it is now he will
be willing to mako two trips per
week each way. This service has
proved to be of very great convenience to shippers. Nanaimo tnkes
a large quantity of farm produce
from tbe mainland, and most of it
comes from Fraser River. A service from "Vancouver would not
answer, because it is far more difficult and expensive for the residents
on the south side of the river (and
it is on tho south side that most of
the farms are situated) to reach
Vancouver than Wostminster. No
one will object to a new mail route
being established from Vancouver,
but the existing route from this city
must not be disturbed. When the
resolution comes before tho houso
we hope our representatives will seo
that the interests of this city and
the south side of tho river aro not
threatened.
We think it is scarcely creditable
to the city authorities thut the noisy
celebration »f the Chinese new year
should have been permitted to go on
without interruption ull day yesterday. From early morning until
late at night tho explosion of tiro
crackers went on, varied occasionally by tho louder report of the bomb.
These things were done openly on
one of the businois streets, wliere
there was certainly nothing to hinder police interference. No ono wi 11
object to the Chinese having u good
time on their anniversary clays; and,
for our part, the noise of exploding
fire works docs not disturb us in
the least; but those things should always be subject to tho same restraints that are applied to onr own
citizens. No respectable citizen
would think for a moment of shooting off fire crackers or otherwise on-
gaging in a noisy celebration of any
national holiday which happened lo
fall on Bunday. By unanimous
consent it has been made u rule thut
when theso events fall on Sunday, the publio observance of them
shall be postponed until the following Monday. The circuuistnnce
that the Ohinese themselves hnve no
Sabbath does not alter the case.
While they are living in a Christian
community and enjoying the advantages and protection of a civilized people, they must expect to
conform to such regulations nntl
oUBtoms as prevail. If they arc not
satisfied with suoh regulation?, they
need not stay—no person will intor-
pose any objection to their leaving.
We do verji decidedly object, however, to having our laws and customs
set at dofianoe by these people, ond
we think the city authorities ought
to have required the Chinese yesterday to confine their celebration to
inch aotsat.loait at would not offend the publio neiwe of propriety.

(>w So Lives nml Vlmt He Thittki ol
-    ths Indian Question.
The vexed Indian a uestion was never more
iqlitly and pointedly stated and discussed
an in the following sketch abbreviated
sin Harper's Young People:
i am a jolly little Indian papoose. I keep
etty close to my mother. She does not
.en like to hive a responsibility of my
e, but she will shoulder it any time, and
we are bound together by* the strongest
Jjn,
[When I am at home 1 live in a wigwam
licit mother and I built. Wc made it of
lea covered with hark and skins. We
Nt it together. Mother did the work, and
.'ucked hor up heavily, and between us
ith we pulled through without interrupt-
g father, who was busy sitting around
.siting in the sun nud smoking. He works
basking and smoking and eating nearly
1 the time when he is not sleeping, unless
'ere should be a war or a hunt; then he
ies oil' with a gun.
Mother and I do all the rest of the work;
u plant and hoc and hmvest the crops; we
riid the corn between stones, or pound it
■ a mortar; then we make it Into cakes,
d roast them in the lire for father to cat.
other does it, hut 1 keep right around after
"r, and see to it nil.
tSometimes we have nothing to cat—roots,
Vrries, acorns, everything gives out. Then
p start forthe Agnni-y to get rations. It
a long tramp, but I don't mind it, for
jther does thu walking.* Wo form a pro-
ssion of two—a double header. Mother
ads the front and 1 head the rear. As the
lunin moves fur ward I- ,r,o ahead backward
te a born leader of the hindmost, and I
■.-.h everything on the road that in not
ing my my. Of course I can not see
(tat I am coniin*: to till I am going away
>m ft, and I can't dodge it till it is past,
mt Is what comes of going ahead buck-
/.rd.
'My people arc pretty much like me. Tho
'}. Mother Government straps them upon u
ard and shoulders them around from
f^e place to another. If she hears them
[onu with hunger, she leedsthem; if she
es them shiver with cold, she blankets
vein; when they shriek and kick with rage,
\\ beats them. 'Stic lets them live on the
.id side of somewhere till somebody else
nis it, and then she bundles them oil' to
\, other side of nowhere whieh nobody
ints.
'■tVhite mon who stay home aud n.akc
,-oks say my inoplc are dying out; but
lite men who look around and count say
j> people are living on, as mnny as ever.
'-.**•! it is chaps like me that keep the Indian
'.estion going.   There are thousands upmi
jusands like me, but we hit always on tiio
Lid sido and looking backward.
Llhey say there are white babies who arc
f Tied upon their mothers' hearts and next
[J their cheeks ; these babies alwavs look
.'-"ward, and everything starts smalt  and
Mjiwslarge ami comes toward them, ami they
in catch U if they want it.   These babies
c their eyes and ears trained to find out
pat is coming, their foreheads bulge out to
ret future events, and their noses are sharp;
* -I upon them as they whiz by.   So these
f ica grow to be strong men.
Oh, old Mother (.iovermnent, take up my
or people and bear them upou thy heart 1
'id them with the milk of human kindness;
Ke them justice, and tench them, by exam*
if, the law of love.  Then shall my people
■„ up their heavy hands; they shall "look
[ward, and not   backward, up and not
Lvn, and lend a hnnd."
Wb«r« Weed* Coma From.
It is a question which will probably never
I satisfactorily tcttlod. whence come the
rids of the plants suddenly found starting
j, in out-of-the way aud desert places
iere none of their" kirid hns ever been seen
•"ore. For instance, a space may be cleared
I ay in the centre of a great forest, many
Ies from cultivated fields or clearings of
'■••• kind, and no sooner does the sunlight
[ter than various plants, hitherto unknown
}ihe place, are found springing up every-
■Vic.    The numiton fire-weed is ono of
fee sudden gp<» I In, and chickweed, Imr-
f* It. and the dandelion are generally uoi
7 behiiid.   It is not diflii-ult to understand
i* the dandelion seeds might be conveyed
these isolated spots on the wings of the
(id, but it is not so easy to explain (he
liu-nrancefo! t fatf Vft man ti.   H seems as
Hie seeds of some of tnem most have beeu
ting in the ground, perhaps for centuries,
the right conditions of growth.    No
ner are uie trees and other forest growths
j't away than the strangers appear from
i ground as easily and naturally «though
iml always been their home.   Up springs
'die-weed In dense array, silver-leaf and
^ liver-wort close upon the heels of the
'ler forest plants, as much ns to say,
'ell, if you nre not going to occupy this
I und, wi might ai well nave a chance."
•% ious theories have been propounded to
fount  for this curious upsprlnging  of
ints.    One is that   the seeds of the
g\iti have been  lying dormant in the
und for time out of mind, waiting, as it
e, for tbe summons to appear in the di-
beat of the rain end the sunshine, but
theory will hardly Hand Ihe test of
Id inquiry.   Another explanation, and
haps the moat plausible of all, is that
new growth is brought about through
agency of those common carriers, the
Is and the winds.  But this explanation
es not fully satisfy the queries which are
Jed by this phenomenon of nature.

SOMETHING WRONG.
Our Percentage of Criminals Is Greater*
Tlinn any Conntij Ilk Europe.
Tn the United States to-day there nre about
2,500 jails and prisons. Out of the 200,000
persons annually arrested, 170,000 are convicted nnd made prisoner for longer or
shorter terms in these places of criminal con*
(incment. If wc allow that 40 per cent of
these, which Is a lik-li estimate, nre "repent*
ei'S," wc will still hnve over 100,000 persons
annually introduced nnd broken info what
limy bu termed criminal experience, and suf-
ferlitg the punishment of a criminal. More
th n §10:1,0(11,011:1 hnve been expended in
bu.UUng nnd equipping these institutions.—
Kiten year ire-expend over $400,000,000 more
for r.x]ienpc8 if j risoncrs in jail. Add to
this the .sum of &'M,O0U.(jfl*J more, paid hv the
i;ovi'rntiicnt for arre.-ts simply, ami then *}"20,*
0i«M0.) more as iir.eriT-toiilhi* capital invested, aud even then we <!o not have tbo full
total.
One wonld imagine that with this vast
penal machinery, unit expensive police, crime
would be eft'ectuiillv repressed and property
perfectly protected.
Eut tho fact is far different, Eaeh year
the niin.ber of crtnlitml increases more nip-
idly than the popalntioii. The young are
not tht rred, tho vicious arc nut repressed,
and crimes oi t e 11,us revolting emiru-Her

of Orfl 111 ilia's is;;ieati r than that ol any country of Europe. It -.j-n*nler than it, wm in

How Bohemian Glass Is Colored.
Tho ornnmeii'ntion of the glass Is done
partly in connection with the exposure In
tlie furnace, ami partly in the finishing-
shops, where the work Is completed by
cutting, polishing,'urnishiiig, etching, paint*
ing, and mounting in metal. The glass-
houses have ut their command a very complete color-scale for transparent, opaque,
and clouded tfusiios, Hut it must not be
supposed thot it crucible is placed in the
furnace for each color, from which glass
colored for each ornament is to be made.
The colors are worked out bv means of what
nre culled pastes, which nre kept on hand in
sticks or cakes. From iiteVes of these pastes
previously warmed (ill (hey are soft, suitable
quantities are cut 0:1, hud upon the foundation of white or colored glass, and then
spread out by drawing or blowing, Br this
means only is au economical use of such
costly materials as gold and silver compositions possible. Souse of the glasses thus
treated—gold, copper, and silver glasses-
remain still little, or not nt all, colored after
the melting, bim] :mr, and quick cooling;
nud do not take on their bright hues till they
nre reheated. This is the ease with the
yellow-silver class, which continues un-
colored after the inferiiii'lting uf (he silver
{•alt until it is exposed in the furnace again.
Very fine effects are produced by blending
or overruning of the paste-colors provided
proper attention i» given to the laws of harmony. A blue g ass cup is, for example,
overlaid with silver g'ass at its upper edge,
and this is drawn down in gradually thinner
tones till it fades awny at the foot ofthe vase.
Gold and copper mby-colors are thus combined with green glasses etc. Another
brilliant effect is produced when a still hot
bulb of glass is rolled in finely pulverized
nventurine glass, and after this is melted,
and previous to the shaping of the vessel, is
overlaid with a coating of either colored or
colorless glass.
A Bud Mistake.
The masculine girl makes tho common
error 01 confounding notoriety with popularity. She does not see lint though men
tire auniM'd hy her slangy manner they are
imidii mpic respectful and courteous thereby. She only sees that she is a favorite with
men, ilmtsho always has partners nnd es-
ions, uud is invited every where. Men nru
at their vase with her; but, bo assured,
there is a mighty dlHtnouce between tne
fitl oue loafs and smokes with, and tho girl
one prefers for a wife or a mother. The
very fashion that in moderation wu charming, in excess Is disagreeable. The slangy,
lolling, sprawling meii-hmiters—and sonic
girts 01 th-- period are little more than that—
Juive spoiled the liberty which it was dc«
ligtitfiil to see woman accepting in modern*
lion. There is a liberty that makes us tree,
anl a liberty that makes us slaves, nnd the
gir'a who take liberties with modesty of
speech and manner, nnd who cross well over
thi1 bmmdnry into masculine territory, are
not more slavish than before. And the approbation of men, which is the end in view,
15 lost by the very means taken to gain it.
There ii one young woman who has been a
telle for l»o winters. One day she remarked
to the writer that now ahe was obliged to
d'i llie marketing; that her mother had al-
\\iiy» dene it hut 'at last ma kicked.' When
t;.« ** ritir said to a friend of a young woman,
thm she would not get married for several

Carbolic Addon the Fl.M of Honor.
A triumph of antiseptic surgery whlrh was
probably unforeseen hr Sir Joseph Lister is
recorded by the French papers. As is well
known, the duello still IIuml■,hop umoiig our
neighbors with a vigor tlmt would luvc de>

very easily satisfied in these encounters, and
all the scientific (bruits ami lunges end
usually In wounds which are well within the
range of minor siirgcrv. It appears, however, that In a recent ntlhir 01 honor the
principals, who "meant business,'* ran each
other completely through the body, (.treat,
therefore, was thcnmaEcuient of their friends
to set both the heroes ot the fr.v walking
about a few days after as if nothing hud Imp-
Bened. This fortunate result is utirlbuied to
ie fsct that the surgeon who was in attendance on the ground had token the precaution
to dip the swords In a strong solution of carbolic acid before tlicy were used. This
humane Idea might possibly be still further
improved upon, aud the combatants might
bu compelled lo light In suits of antiseptic

carbolic spray. Tho sterilization of pistol
bullets may follow, and the Impetuous politicians on the other side of tho Channel will
then be able to indulge in their favorite
recreation with even less risk than at tires.

A Sluggish Liver
the Stomach and Bowels to become disordered, and the whole system
to suffer from debility. In all such
cues Ayer's Fills give prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles. I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Fills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their notion, and their occasional uso
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition.—Ralph Weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which waa restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Fills.
Since wat time I have nover been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and Increase the appetite, more surely than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer'a
Pills for Stomach and Livor disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months, My skin
ins yellow, and my tongue coated. I
hnd no appetite, suffered from Head-
acne, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Pills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove tho horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I have used these
Pills in my family, for years, and they
never fall to give entire satisfaction.—

The report of Grand Secretary Davey
for the year 1887 exhibits a healthful
and progressive state of affairs. The
numbor of subordinate lodges have increased by one (at Kamloops) during
the past yoar and now numbers nine,
exclusive of the Rebeckuh Degree
Lodge, instituted at Victoria. The
members iu good standing number
802, an increase 102. Twenty-two
members died, an increase of 10, an
unn-mnl mortality. Tho number of
brothers relieved was 115, eight more
than iu the previous year, and the
number of families, seven, an increase
of two. The actual work of the institution is shown by tho benefits paid for
tho relief nf brother-**, burying the
dead, Ac. Tlio amouut-i piid fur these
purposes woro: Relief of brothers,
$5,4411.75, a decrease of §328; burying
the dead, $1035, mcreaie of $1003.
The receipts wero $17,010, and the
total assets aro roportod to be $00,175.
The average duration of sickness rif
of each sick member was 5 weeks and
5 days, and the average sum paid to
sick members was $47,71, which indicates that several of the lodges aro
carrying members who uro chronic invalids. Tho total amount paid for relief of member***, etc., since the foundation of tho Grand Lnd*.*e, is $03,300,
thu di$bursomont of which has unqucs*
tionably accomplished much good, and
assuaged the sorrows of tho friend) of
the members called hence.
Found llrimurd.
On Saturday eome Indians reported
to Mr. Atkins, who lives near Mr,
Geo. Hindi's Coquitbun farm, that
thoy had Beon tho body of a man in
tho Goqtiltlam, about 300 yards below
Black'B btidge. Mr. Atkins sent word
of tho discovery to Mr. Moresby who
loft oarly yesterday morning and
brought tlie body to town. The body
was embedded in the sand in u reclining position with only the upper part
uf tho trunk uncovered, and in a spot
whero Ihe wat- r whs four feet deep,
So firmly was the body fixed in (lie
sand, it required the united efforts of
six men to extricate it from its rcBtuiu
place. On the person of tho deceased
was found a po-itnl card, addressed to
Andrew Ring, Port Huney, $48.15 in
silver and bills, a pocket compass and
an indelliblo pencil. The body Was
recognized by several persons in this
city us that of Andrew Ring, a Gorman,
who farmed at Port Haney. The post
card was dated in November and it wns
thought ut first ho had met his death
about that time, but several persons
in this city claim to havo seen him
about six weeks ago. Mr, Moresby
telegraphed to Mr. Docksteador, of
Port Haney, for any information he
could supply. Mr. Dock slender replied to the effect that Andrew Ring
owned a farm near Haney but had
beeu absent from it for some time
working at Vanoouver, and the dnto
of his lost visit home was nut exactly
known. The deceased has no friends
iu this country, ao far as is known, and
where he came from could not be
learned. The body was colli nod by
Mr. Lord, tho undertaker, and buried
this afternoon. As there were no signs
of foul play or reason t j suppose death
had occurred oiherwisu than by accident, it was nut doomed necessary to
hold an inquest, The general supposition ia that Rinir attempted to en as
tho Cuqtiitlaui on tho ice, it hen tt wns
frozen ovor In tonus places In-t month
and broke through and was drowne *',
He might have fallen ovor tho bridgo
and boen carried down by the current,
but it is very unlikely the accident occurred in that way.
A Dig Blow.
The gule of wind which blew all
day yesterday was the strongest in
somo months. It blew directly up tlie
river and caused the water to rise
rapidly until it reached a point higher
than last summer's high water mark.
W. H. Vianen's fish-house broke loose
from its moorings and was in danger
of being pounded to pieces against the
wharf. Beforo it could berefaitened
part nf the roof was stove in and a
couple of tho mooring chains broken.
Tho steamer Yosemite in making a
landing at Lulu Island was carried
broadside on, by tlio sheer force of the
wind, against tho wharf and a portion
of hor guard broken, but not to any
great extent. A few skiffs got looso,
but no further damage is roportod.
Tlie liiile niorknde.
Particulars of the land slide that
took place during the lato blockade nt
Pulliser, on the lino of tho C.P.R.,
west of tho Columbia river, aro to
hand. Severo Chinook winds have
prevailed in that section for somo time,
causing many snowslides and soriously
interfering with traffic by sweeping
away a portion of the road. A wracking train was sont noxt day from the
nearest point to dear tho track for
traffic. The men had beon at work
for several hours, aud had tbe track
almost completed, when a terrible avalanche of snow and land came sweeping
down the mountain side. Two men
of a gang of about eight saw the danger in timo to escape, but the others
wero caught. By crouching closo to
the mountain, near the track, they
avoided being struck by the avalanche,
but they were buried aud wedged in
undor thirty or forty feet of snow,
lu a very short space of time all the
available forces were sont to dig out
thi) entombed men, They worked for
three hours, but the pile of snow and
earth wns so terribly pressed down
that work Was slow. After t digging
down about fifteen feet, crioB and
moans of the buried men could be
heard. Vigorous efforts of another
half hour, and the head of tho first
man was reached. Ho was a section
man named Robertson, and was unconscious. Three othor men wore
found. Ono was in a nook in the
mountains, and fared pretty well, _ but
tho other two were iu a terrible plight,
aud it wns not known if they will survive. At latest accounts search was
being continued for the other two or
threo, there boing some uncertainty
ns to tho exact number. The rescued
men wero convoyed to a hospital near
thu mountains provided for that pur*
pose. For several days before the
23rd ult., there waa a continuous and
heavy fall of snow, and on Monday
night Iho thaw started, so that on
Tuesday morning tho reports of trouble
east and west woro not a great surprise, but the extent of tho damage
was more than anticipated. At the
Loop, on the Illecillewaet, 500 feet of
the track was covered with ice (a glacier) to a depth of 15 feet. The worst
break was on tho oast slope of the Selkirks where an avalanche poured with
terrific forco over and into shed 5. It
was stated that tho shed was a complete wreck, but sich is not the case
for the dating.) ia very slight—Sentinel.

From Mount Lehman,
..Correspondence of tlie Columbian.
Mount Lhjiman, Feb. 8.—The snow
was deeper hero this winter than it has
baeil for a great many years, being 2i
feet on tho level. It is nearly all
gone now, however, and there is a
prospect of si'iiio very fino weather,
Some days wo have had it as warm as
00 in tho sliado, nud people uro beginning to prepare fur planting their gor-
deus. She ico in ptottv well broken
up in the rivor. Wo have been very
woll served with iniiiU during tlie winter, having mused only twice. Dunne
the last fow days Mt. Lehman has had
nn addition of threo to its population
—tbo moro the merrier. The third
meoting of uur literary and debating
society was hold mi tho 27th ult. As
the sleighing was gooil at tho timo,
tho attendance wnn large. The subject
fur debate was: Which carries the
most influence, the pen or tho sword J
Mr. Win. Thomson appeared for the
pen, and Mr. McColl for tho sword,
and the judgo decided iu favor uf the
pen. It was one of the liveliest debates evor held by tho socioty. Next
meoting will bo held un iho 17th,
when Mr. R Civilian, jun., and Mr.
8, J, Wcscott will endeavor to show
whether tbe farmer or merchant is of
greater benefit to tho country. Mra.
A. Hawkins, who bus been very ill, is
row convalescent, Mr. M. D. Mor*
neon contemplates building a new residence on his place shortly, whioh
will bo quite an addition to the im-
provetnents of our settlement. The
littlo pioneer shanties aro rapidly din*
appoaring, and good, substantial residences are taking their place, which is
a tangible sign uf prosperity. Mr. E.
W. King haa tendered his resignation
as superintendent of tho Sunday sohool
owing to lack of attendance. It is not
ere lititbb' to Mt. Lehman that with a
population of about 30 ohildren a Bunday .''i-linel cannot be kept up; but wo
can't expect anything different so long
ns children are taught to believe that
Sunday schools are merely intended to
afford people an opportunity to gather
together nnd exhibit their good clothes.

Messrs. Parker & Laird, uf Hillsdale,
writes: Our Mr. Laird, having occasion
to visit Scotland, nnd knowing the excellent qualities of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrio
Oil, concluded to tako some with kirn,
ami tbo result has been very astonishing.
Wo may say that in several instances it
has effected cures when ailments had
been pronounced incurable by eminent
practitioners.
Late Canadian News.
Montreal, Fob. 7.—John James
was arrested hero to day on a charge
of bigamy, preferred by his father-in-
law, Thomas E. Hammond, accountant, who alleges that be married, in
1882, in Chively, Berks, England,
Miss Ada Baverutock, nnd after securing her money, amounting to a considerable sum, left for America. He is a
tall, aristocratic-looking Englishman,
who has resided hore for about fivo
years, during two Inst of which he has
acted as advertising agent of the Mon-
iteur du Commerce.
Hamilton, Feb. 7.—At a meeting
of the Salvation ! Army yesterday
Philip DesuilHers, of Montreal, a converted Trappist monk, delivered au
interesting address exposing tho practices of the prieBts of that oily. He
accused them of drinking to excess
nnd described the feasting and self-
flagellations which had almost caused
his death during tho time ho remained
in the monastry.
Quebec, Fob. 7.—A prominent Roman Catholic priest says that at first
the Jesuitsasked over $700from thopro-
vinc3, but thut they will now accept
8300 from the Mercier government for
a final settlement of their claims,
F. Burrows, of Wilkcsporfc, writes
that he was cured of a very dangerous
case of inflammation of the lungs, solely
by the uso of five bottles of Dr. Thomas* Eclectric Oil, , Feels great pleasure
in recommending it to the public, as he
had proved it (for many of the diseases
it mentions to cure) through his friends,
and in nearly every instance it was effectual. Do not be deceived by nay
Imitations of Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil.
Be sure you get the genuine.

Parmeleb'S Pills possess the power
of acting specifically upon the diseased
organs, stimulating to action the dormant
energies of the system, t'.iereby removing
disease. In fact, so great is the power
of this medicine to cleanse and purify,
that diseases of almost every name and
nature are driven from the body." Mr.
D. Carawell, Carswell 1\ O., Ont., writes:
"I have tried Parmelee's Pills and find
them an excellent medicine, and one that
will Bell well."
