The case of oanino intolligenoo
from London finds something ap-
pronchiiig a parallel in Canada.
The London dogs, it will ho remembered, brought an injured collie to
tho King's Cross hospital and barked at the door of the institution until their disabled friend was taken
in and attended to. Here is the
Canadian cose. The Montreal peo.
pie have opened a homo for tho
children of tho poor during the
summer months at Varenncs. Mr.
Sinclair, the secretary to the charity,
reports that on the day the home
was opened a lurj{e. Newfoundland
dog, woll up' ill years, entered the
home and constituted himself assistant guardian to the children.
The faithful brute is never off duty,
and will not permit a stronger to
approach without giving vent to his
feeling in deep barks and growls,
By day he remains on the verandah,
carefully watching the children; by
night he is in the corridor, pacing
to and fro. No one seems to know
where he eamo from, but there ho
remains, faithful to his self-imposed
task, The committee, it is gratifying to learn, has decided to give
him a home for the remainder ef
his days, as a reward for his faithful services, These cases of dog
sense indicate a more charitable disposition on the part ot quadrupeds
than some bipeds possess.—Mail.
The name of sea lion has been
given to a number of large seals of
both hemispheres, either from their
savage appearance, roaring voice,
powerful canines, or manal neck.
The northern sea lion is found on
the east shores of Kamschatka,
around the Kurile, and down the
western coast of North America on
rugged shores and desert rocks of
tha ocean, nearly to latitude 10 degrees. It is about fifteen feet long,
and weighs some 1,000 pounds. The
male have stiff, curled hair on the
neck, a thick hide, large head, bushy
eyebrows, long nose, and are covered with course hair of a' tawny1 do\oVtl\:
They live upon fish and smaller ma-
rive animals. The sea lion is. invaluable to the natives of the northwest coasts of America, though they
are not accounted ot much value in
the commercial world. But the Indians use their skins for covering
boats, and for making long boots
for protecting the limbs, they make
water-proof garments by sewing together their intestines, and convert
their stomach-walls into oil pouches,
dry their flesh for food, and sell
their mustache bristles to the Chinese, who use them as pickers for
their opium pipes. Tho sea lions
arc far less numerous than the fur
seals, and as they are not protected
from indiscriminate slaughter by
law, the species is becoming greatly
reduced in numbers. Two specimens, of this animal were brought
to Lincoln Park, Chicago, some
years ago.—Chicago Inter Ocean.
A rentleman who returned recently from Aspinwall tells the following ourious story of the manner
in which the natives of tho interior
of the Isthmus of Panama capture
monkeys: "Almost all the pet
monkeys in this country," said ho,
"come from Gorgona, a small village half way on the line of tho Panama Railroad. The inhabitants are
mostly native negroes, for no white
man could live in the village a
month unless ho drank whisky and
took quinine constantly. The sur
rounding oountry is swampy and
covered with a dense mass of luxur-
iant vegetation, At nightfall a
thick miasma rises from the ground
and hangs over the forest like a
cloud. This place is the monkey's
paradise. They travel through the
forest in troops going wherever the
king monkey leads. When the natives have been apprised of the
presence of a troop they go about
warily to capture them. Their plan
is a simple one. A hole is cut in a
cocoanut large enough to admit a
monkey's paw. The cocoanut is
scooped out and a lump of sugar
placed in the hollow. ' A string is
then attached to the novel trap and
the negroes conceal themselves until tho monkeys pass by. Cnriousi-
ty is one of the chief characteristics
of these little creatures, and when
they spy the cocoanut lying upon
the ground thoy come down from
the trees and proceed to inspoct it
carefully. The lump of sugar does
not long escape thoir notice, and
one of them thrusts a paw through
the aperture to grab it With tho
lump of sugar clasped in his hand
he finds it impossible to withdraw
it, nor will his greedy nature allow
him to abandon his prize. The negroes have no difficulty in drawing
him nearer to their ambush, tho
whole troop scampering madly
about him, chattering and gesticulating as only monkoys can. When
they have arrived within easy reach
a largo net is thrown out, and they
nro made prisoners. Twenty or thirty nro frequently captured at ono
haul. Tlii! natives sell them to the
employees of the Panama Railroad,
who in turn dispose of them to the
A.merican market.'—Iloston Courier.

BLAINE IX DUBLIN.
Dublin, Aug. 11.—Jaa. O. Blaine,
in replying to an invitation to the

of the Irish people, was intensified by
his present visit, which he would glad*
ly prolong, if it were possible.
TBE WXEOKID TEA1X.
Peobu, Aug. 11.—It is learned
from one of the conductors, that the
excursion train while on the bridge,
near Piper Oity, came into collision
with another train going in the opposite direction, and the cars of the excursion train piled upon each other in
a frightful condition, and from the
shock of the cullisiun, the bridpe gave
way. The scene which follows is described as heart-ronding in the extreme It was so dark that little could
be distinguished, except that the can
lay piled one on the other, ill shattered and crushed. Many were undoubtedly killed instantly. Others were
crushed, and some were pinned down
by broken timbers in such a way that
they could'not escape. Their cries for
help were heart.rendiug, men and
women called in wild despair lor • aid.
It wns a long timo before a systematic
effort could be made to extricate
wounded and remove the dead. Added
to the horror of the occasion, the cars
took fire and many who were killed,
were burned as well as many who were
wounded, and unable to extricate
themselves, and who were thus burned
alive. It is estimated that between
100 and 200 were killed outright. The
adjacent towns sent help to extinguish
the flames, and save tho imprisoned
wounded and the dead from cremation,
The head officials are directing all thoir
available force to the aid of the unfortunate passengers. Ten coaches either
went through tu tlio bed of the stream
or were piled up in a promiscuous
heap crosswise and lengthwise on the
traok. So far 70 bodies have been recovered, aud none havo been taken
from tbe earn underneath, while not.
even a sound can be heard from them.
It is feared that all in those cars are
dead. The number of killed will reach
200. The wounded, eo far as can be
ascertained, will number 150.

Ckatswoiith, HI., Aug. 12.—Some
sensational features were developed
this morning as to the cause of the
Ohatsworth wreck. Rumors wen
afloat last evening that it was done by
robbers, who Urea the bridge. Little
credence is given to thorn. This evening now facta have been brought to
light apparently showing the eatutro-
phe to be the work of an organised
band, and the company find them
worthy of serious investigation. Slid
Supt Armstrong to anaasooiatedprtw
reporter: That the more he investigated the more it appeared to him that
tbe bridge was set on fire. He had
observed many thieves at work and
had stopped them from removing
articles from tho wreck. Many instances of the robbery of the dead
were being brought to his attention.
Tho excursion had been extensively
advertised, and the fact that the train
would pass over the bridgo wasknown.
Citizens say a gang of suspicious fellows had been loitering around Chats-
worth for some days. Many of these
were found early at the wreck, paying
more attention to relieving the bodies
of valuables than to caring for them.
Some men and passengers had frequent
contentions with the vandals. In one
instance the superintendent found

The shocking,Occident which occurred early yesterday morning on
the Toledo, Peoria A Western Railway calls public attention again
very forcibly to tho criminal carelessness of whioh some railway people are sometimes guilty. Either
the bridge over the Vermilion River
was quite insecure, or the train
was too heavy for it. In
either caso the railway officials can
scarcely escape from blame. The
system of inspecting railway bridges
and roadways and locomotives does
not seem to guarantee the publio
against accidents that might be prevented. This is the worst accident
of a year that has been phenomenally fatal to railway travellers, and
it will surely lead to some practical
remedy.
• The Dark Continent.
It is generally believed that the
report of Stanley's death is a mistake. The great explorer is probably still alive, and pursuing with
vigor the mission with which he has
been entrusted by the British government. The importance of the
expedition is such that the eyes of
the civilized world have been turned
upon the Dark Continent with
eager expectancy. The fate of
Emin Pasha comprehends more
than the life or death of a brave
man; Of late years several European powers have been reaching out
to grasp a portion of the unreclaimed interior of Africa. When
the power of the Egyptian government seemed to have collapsed in
the Soudan, Germany, Italy and
France endeavored to find in the
contusion a pretext under which to
secure some spoil for themselves.
Italy claimed the right of a military establishment on the Red Sea,
and not only occupied it but sent
an expedition into Abyssinia. An
American journal supplies information which explains some of the
true inwardness of the Soudan disasters and the defeat of Italian
troops. A number of Cossacks who
had gone to the Caucasus, under the
encouragement of Russia emigrated
to tlie Soudan and Abyssinia. These
Cossacks are said to have been found
in the Mahdi's army, and they were
certainly received by the Abyssin-
ians with much cordiality. It is
reported that they exercised such
influence in Abyssinia that the Negus or head of the Coptio Ohuroh in
that country contemplated union
with the Russian Church, or the
placing ot the Christian population
of Abyssinia under the protection
of tlie Czar. The Russian govern
ment disclaimed responsibility for
this Cossack movement, but admitted the presence of the best cavalry
in the world in equatorial Africa as
free lances. The Italian expedition
into Abyssinia was defeated, and it
was reported that Emin Pasha, who
under the authority of Egypt had
been extending his dominions southwest, was placed in peril by the
King of Uganda (Mtesa's old kingdom on Lake Victoria Nyanzu) and
that Huanga, the king, was acting
tinder Russian influence. The polioy of Emin Pasha towards the natives was to be similar to the policy
pursued by Gen. Gordon. He relentlessly drove the slave traders
out of the provinces, taught the
natives the art of tilling the soil
after the most approved methods,
and introduced the simpler branches
of manufacture. He established a
mail service, founded schools, and
introduced "many other civilized
practices. With the purpose of ex
tending his authority over the
whole lake region he explored the
Albert Nyanza, and- brought the
natives under his influence. For
the past two years France has
greatly extended her African possessions. Tbe Senegambia colony was
extended to the Niger, taking in
96,000 square miles; Gaboon was
extended by DeBrazza until it embraced a population of 20,000,000.
DeBrazza came into conflict with
Stanley, who represented the Congo
Free State, which is now a recog
nized sovereignty under international guarantees. King Leopold of
Belgium is its sovereign. It has an
area of 1,055,200 miles, and a population of 27,000,000. Its trade is
to be free to all nations, and the
navigation ot the Congo is under
direction of an international commission. The German East African
Co. hal alio taken possession of a
luge piece of territory extending
from tho east coast towards the
heart of the continent, and is reaching out for the lakes, It seems
that all the powers represented in
Africa are eager to acquire the interior, lake region where the sources
of the Nile are. Great Britain hu
been driven out ot the Soudan, but
she may reach the sources of the
Nile by the baok door, the Congo
River. : Stanley is acting ostensibly
under, the authority of Egypt, but
*' *%?P* i* now in possession of
Great Britain, and Stanley was sent
ont really by the British government, hia Jnay properly be railed a
British expedition. The task before him is a mo»t delicate one, be-
cause it will be necessary for him
not only to face hostile and powerful ■stive tribes, but to avoid com
plications with the European pow-
era whole conflicting interests are
represented in the dark continent
That he may be successful and return with his life and new lustre
added to his wonderful achievements
is the earnest wish of every friend
of African freedom.
A. Maybeo, Merchant, Wurkworth,
writes: "I have sold sonic hundreds of
bottles of Dr. Thomas' Electric Oil, and
it is pronounced by tlie public 'ono of
the best medicines they have ever used';
it bas dono wonders in healing anil relieving pain, sore throats, kc, and is
worthy of the greatest confidence."

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LIMITED.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf New Westminster, to he known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tlio British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. Tho object of
tho new company is to continue the publication of the British Columbian newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will be
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland, Thore will be no
Blackening of the energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for' tbeir money.
The Columbian will continue to be entirely Independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may be considered In the publlo interest.
The concern Is now entirely separate from
any other business, tbe book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T, K.
Pearson, who will continue to carry lt on
Ia Us own name and for his own benefit.
It Is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for publlo patronage on the ground that it is engaged In
an enterprise calculated to promote the
public welfare. It asks that the Columbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long aa its policy is
enconsistt with its professions. In con-
sequence of this business change all accounts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may he adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and
remittances to

trMty Eraslnf, August II. 1887.
England nnd Bussla.
Sir Charles Dilke's articles in
the "Fortnightly Review" on
the balance of military power in
Europe have called forth a number of replies from men and magazines in a position to speak
with some authority. In these
articles Sir Charles took the
ground that a conflict between
Great Britain and Russia was
inevitable, and that on the whole
the chances of success lay with
Russia. A writer in "Blackwood" for July disputes this
view, and expresses the belief
that the vast Russian hosts
which Sir Charles had in his
mind's eye existed principally
on paper. The courage and fanaticism of the Russian soldier
are admitted, but it is shown
that the Russian army has virtually no non-commissioned officers in the true sense—that
those who pass for such are not
a whit more intelligent or better
trained than the peasant lads
whom they direct. With respect
to the Russian cavalry, a Russian military writer has recently
stated that during the war with
Turkey in 1877-8 that branch of
the service broke down hopelessly. In fact, the cavalrymen
had to be employed as foot-soldiers, and were assigned to the
task of stopping convoys, at
which they failed. On one notable occasion a picked body of
them, selected expressly because
of their supposed shooting skill,
were despatched with orders-to
stop a particular convoy in the
neighborhood of Plevna. Having reached a point as near as it
was thought desirable for them
to move as a mounted corps,
they left their horses behind
them and advanced to the attack,
only to be driven off by a small
party of Turkish soldiery, without doing the latter any damage
whatever. On another occasion
a large body of them, thus dismounted, expended a million
and a quarter of cartridges without producing any effect upon
the Turks. The Russian artillery
is in a more efficient condition,
but the transport and commissariat services are in. * bad a
state as they could well be, the
corruption of the officials being
widespread and inveterate. England's chief advantage over Russia, however, lies in her great
wealth, which implies her ability to carry on a prolonged
war: and in her superior facilities
for transporting troops to any
point at which she desires to
strike, Russia must by an in-
cxorablenecessity,when England
is opposed to her, convey her
troops over enormous distances
by land. An army wanting altogether alike in an officer, and
in a non-commissioned officer
class, with habits of peculation
engrained in those who cater for
it, and suffering always from
that disease of "too much "ark-
duke" which proved so fatal to
it in 1877, will enter upon any
distant campaign under disadvantages which no number at
the depots can compensate.
England, on the other hand, has
a vast mercantile marine which
could be employed in the transportation of troops to the point
where she wanted to fight.
But even with all the wealth
and ships and men she possesses,
England could not improvise an
army.—Mail.

"You can't kill a mule." This
saying was demonstrated almost
to a mathematical certainty near
Center's shop one day last week.
A colored boy was plowing
"goobers" for Mr, Center. In the
.corner of the goober patch was
an old well at least thirty feet
deep covered with briars. In
turning the mule slipped in and
went to the bottom. His excited owner summoned a posse to
his aid. A rope was tied around
the body of the mule and he was
drawn to the top of the well. The
rope broke and the mule again
went to the other end of the well.
A second attempt was successful.
The mule was safely landed on
the outside of the well, and, contrary to the expection of his rescuers, leaped to his feet, and
without giving the slightest expression of gratitude, commenced
feeding on the grass as though
nothing had happened. The
plow and gear were demolished
and three holes were kicked
through the bottom of the well.—
Lafayette (Ga.) Messenger,
Mrs. E. H. Perkins, Creek Centre,
Warren Co., N. Y., writes: She hu been
troubled with asthma for four years, had
to sit up night alter night with It. She
has taken two bottle, of Dr, Thomas'
Eolectrio CHI, and is perfectly cured.
She strongly recommend, lt, ana wishes

A HOMETOMPANY,
This Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
The Security offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the polioy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the publio can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every Item of income and how expended.
Its position is ascertained annuully from
a detailed valuation In which every Hem
of liability Is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled lu
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon an equitable basis. The profits to one class of
fpolicy holders are not lessened to give
nrger profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

The Vintners. — Wo understand
that at a meeting of thu vintners of
this city it was resolved to notify tho
citycouncil that unless theSundayby-law
was rescinded at next meeting tho hotels and saloons would discontinue tho
practice of closing their bars during
the hours of church service, and would
keep open all Sunday. As a matter of
fact we have never regarded it as of
great consequence whether the bars
are closed during church honrs or not
if they are open for the rest of the
day. It was also resolvod that tho hotels and saloons would discontinue the
use of gas if Mr. Rand continued to
collect the rates, as it was alleged that
Mr. Rand has been using his influence
against the liquor trade. We do not
think tne action nf the association in
either of these cases wise, or such ob
will obtain public sympathy.
"The Sailer Slave-"
Bartley Campbell's popular drama
wat produoed last night by the Wilber
company to a crowded house and
scored a success. It is estimated that
over 400 people attended the performance. The rendition uf the play
throughout was fairly good, though
some parts were a trine stagy. Mr.
Frank McGinnis as "Oliver Oll-
phant," and Mr, Harry Cbotte as
"Sidney Northcote." and Miss Choate
in the role of''Cecily Blain," deservo
especial praise. The support was good.
As is customary with tentedexhibitlons
a concert was given after the play.
Soveral new specialties wero produced,
including an exhibition of Kissol, the
wonderful Zouave bayonet and gun
drillist. To-night Bartley Campbell's
"Woman against Woman" will no put
on the boards. It is purely an American play and the most successful of
the great playwrights many Inventions, abounding in the brightest comedy, tender in its pathos, with strong
dramatic situations. In short it is
bound to please everybody.
