The Canadian Pacific Railway.
(From tho Weok,)
We learn from time to time of
the progress of the Canadian Pacifio
Railway. One dny the daily papers
HHSiiie us that on the Eastern section track-laying has reached the
•nfty-fourfcli or fiftj-iiftli mile west
of Sudbmy." Another day wo are
told that in. the Kooky Mountain
region tiack-luying has been curried
to a point ton miles, or eleven miles,
"beyond the Summit"—stilt west
ward. We Imve less in the form of
definite informntion of the progress
eastward from Kamloops on the Paoifio side, or in that portion of the
Lake Superior- country lying between the "fifty-fourth or fifty-fifth
mile west of Sudbury" and Port Arthur, When, however, it is stated
on excellent authority thut some
thirteen thousand mon nre nt work
in the Lake Superior country and
six thousand to seven thousand in
the Kocky Mountain region, we may
safely assume that work is being
pushed on rapidly, und that large
drafts are.being made on the thirty
millions of dollars whub a confiding
Parliament recently pledged to the
Kailway Company. It is not long
sinco tho Company caused to bo announced thnt the entire work from
Montreal to the Pacific Ocean, at
Port Moody, a distance of 2,892
miles, would be completed by the
end of next year, or six yeurs within
the time permitted hy the contract
with the Government. It was intimated, nt the same time, thut tbe
twenty-seven million seven hundred
thousand dollars retained by the
Dominion Government would be
more than adequate- to finish the
contracted lino; in fuct, that there
would bu several millions over.—Wo
havo no doubt that tho Company's
representative who umde the interesting announcement believed that
be wus not too enthusiastic on either
of these points, and if these hopeful
predictions be realized so much the
better for nil concerned. Wo may
add that in tbe references, further
on in this article, to work remaining
to be completed we have accepted
the figures and estimates given hy
the Company's officers, and if the
event fail to justify the prediction
the fault will not be ours,
It is now too late in tho day to
protest against whnt many thoughtful Canadians have regarded ns an
exceedingly hazardous enterprise;
one beyond the resorces of the Do
minion, one which seemed to them
wholly unjustified by any supposed
political or commercial advantages
likely to result from the expenditure
of so many millions of public money,
and the pledging of the public credit
to tho proverbial "last dollar" to ensure its construction and ultimately
its maintenance. There havo been
grave differences of opinion on the
subject. But the Rubicon has been
crossed ; the moneys lmvo been not
only pledged but largely expended.
The great railway is, no doubt, Hearing completion.
The sections at present under con*
struction are the following:—North
of Lake Superior, from Sudbury to
Nonigon, 487 miles; and in the
Kocky Mountains, from Stephen to
Kamloops, 281 miles, On the Lnko
Superior section the track hns beon
laid to a point fifty-six miles west of
Sudbury, and to a point twenty
miles east of Nepigon, leaving 411
miles of a gup between tlie ends of
the track. Construction forces nre
now at work covering the whole of
this gap, which we are assured will
bo completed so that trains will be
running over it by May, 1885. In
the Rocky Mountain section, where
construction is going on .tt both ends
of the gap, the Company fully expect the track will be laid to the Pacific Ocean by November, 1885.
While the filling of these gaps involves large expenditures, their construction being probably the most
costly, per mile, of the whole contract, their completion, however, is
now a matter of certainly, and then
the country will be brought face to
face with the questions: What
will they do with M   Will it pay,
Theso ate important, questions,
not only ns fur ns thuy relate to the
Company's and its stockholders' interests, but as affecting the public
treasury and the publio interests
generally, and they uro questions
which may be discussed regardless
of the origin of the enterprise or the
complications surrounding its birth.
It must be conceded that the Company starts with many advantages.
It is perhaps the only enterprise of
the kind in existence that has a nine
years' dividend actually in hand,
which at the present market price
of the shares gives the investor a return of 6} per cent per annum on
Ills capital,   Tho company has no

other fixed charges than the interest
on tho loan from the Government,
which a million and a half per annum more than covers.
The entire Canadian Pacific system
is being constructed, equipped and nlfi-
cored in the most thorough manner,
and from all the information we have
received we believe that its cost to
the shareholders, when finished,, will
be so much less per mile than that
of any of its competing lines that it
will .have no difficulty, while doing
woll for its shareholders, in, at the
same time, serving Ub customers nnd
settlers along the line of country it
traverses cheaper and better than nuy
other trans-continental line. It must
also, we think, be conceded that much
ability and foresight have boen displayed in securing to the Canadian
Pacifio Railway the control bf ths new
line (Ontario and Quebec) running
through the heart of the fertile Province of Ontario and connecting yith
the whole railway system of the Western States, and with navigation of the
Upper Lakes. Nor do we doubt that
the proposed "short-line" extension
of the system to winter ports in the
maritime province* will bring in ro-
turns commensurato to the portion of
the cost of construction whioh will
have to bo provided by the company.
As to 'lio main lino extending, let
us Bay, from Montreal to the Paoifio
Ocean—what can wo reasonably and
safely predict its traffic will be? Our
information in regard to much of the
country and its possibilities ia still
imperfect and vague. "What will the
country between Lake Nipissing and
Winnipeg produce for railway traffic?"
nsk the doubting Thomases. Well,
there is an abundance of timber in
parts of the country; there is, no
doubt, great mineral wealth in course
of development; there nre the resorts
of tourists and sportsmen; there are
extensive and growing fisheries along
the shores of Lake Superior; and
there will, no doubt, be a considerable
population settled in this region, now
that most of the territory is formally
coming under the laws and administration of the province of Ontario, settlers whose wants and industries will
create traffic tot tho railway.. There
are -several million aores of land north
and west of Lake Superior of as fine
agricultural nature as is to be found
anywhere in the Ottawa valley, whioh
will be rapidly taken up and settled.
While this is quite true, it is well
known that the country from Lake
Superior west to the Pacifio Ocean,
traversed by the line of the Canadian
Paoifio Railway, is a much finer agricultural country than that traversed
by the Northern Pacific Railways,
from Duluth to the Pacific Ocean,
Travellers ovor both lines unhesitatingly pronounce in favor of the laud
on the line of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. If this be so, why should
not the Canadian Pacifio Railway, with
all its advantages over the Northern
Pacific Railway of smaller fixed
charges, for interest, a bettor country
to operate in, and the greatest advantage -of all, having its own line from
ocuun to ocean, not be able to make
as good a showing the first year after
the completion of its lino as did the
Northern Pacific for the yoar ending
the 30th June last — within eight
months of the driving of the golden
spike in September.

Why, let us ask again, should not tho
Canadian Pacific be able to do as well?
But independent of the question of
local traffic, the Lake Superior section
of the line wob an absolute necessity
to ensure the commercial success of
the enterprise. Without the through
lino north of the take, the Canadian
Pacitio would have had no control over
tho traffic going into the North*Woft.
The "west-bound" business would
have continued to go over the G. T.
It. and its American connections as it
had done in tho past, and the so-called
Canadian Pacific Railway would have
-been simply the western extension
of the Amorican railway system, and
not in any sonse a Canadian Pacific
Railway.
In British Columbia the indications
for traffic are most encouraging. The
silver mining and smelting business
promises to be large. Gold mining,
cattle raising, and fish (salmon), canned and fresh, are somo of tho sources
of traffic in sight, and as to the Asiatic
traffic, overtures are already being
made to the government and to tho
oompnny for placing a lino uf steamers on thu route betwoen the ocean
terminus of Pacitio Railway and Yokohama and Hong Kong. It is stated
that passengers by this route from
England to Hong Kong will save ten
days over the prosont Sues canal route.
There is, we think, no neod tu four
that there will not be a fair trans-
Pacific business from thu opening of
tho line.
As for tho prairie section, it cannot,
we think, in fairnesB, be doubted that
ultimately nlong ovory inch of the
traok there will be a traffic contributing
population through a thousand milo
stretch of farming country, the lands,
as far as tested, having been found not
only habitable but tortilo, producing
in perfection wheat and all the other
grains of thu temperate zone, with
ovory variety of rout nnd vegetable
Recent agricultural and meteorological
tests show that what has been spokon
of as "sterile" land in a portion uf this
tract is capable of yielding superior
crops, nud while wo writo fields of excellent wheat are being harvested on
tho railway company's experimental
farms situated in localities the soil ot
whioh had beon ignorant ly pronounced
unfit for cultivation.

It's au 111 Wind!
It is said that there is a serious
disagreement between the Northern
Pacific Railway and the Oregon
Railway k Navigation Co., and it
seems doubtful if the Northern Pacific jwople will be able to make
satisfactory arrangements for running over the 0. R. &N. Co.'s lines.
If this should happen, the Northern
Pacific will be shut out completely
from the sound, ae it has no line to
tide water. It is well known that
the people of Seattle nro greatly disappointed because the Northern
'■' Pacifio Railway did not complete
': its direct line over the Cascades to
Tacoma or Seattle. This line was
patt of the original intention, and
'would greatly shorten the road, and
. also make the company independent
. of the 0. R. & N. Co. Tlio Seattle
Post is quite delighted with the prospect of the construction of the Cascade division, and evidently hopes
that no arrangement may be con*
snmatcd between the two companies.
Most Unlikely.
Several newspapers have been
giving publicity to the rumor that
Hon. Alex. Mackenzie is about to
- enter the Sir John Macdonald cabinet. The rumor is extremely improbable, Mr. Mackenzie's defeat
was principally the result of a refusal to give Canada a protective
tariff, and he could not consistently
enter a government whioh is pledged
to the N, F. Mr. Mackenzie
throughout his whole political history has been opposed to the Tory
party, and has blamed Sir John
not only for serious blunders in
statesmanship bnt for gross acts of
corruption. In the present cabinet are several men who were
directly concerned in tho great Pa
cific Soandal. Mr. Mackenzie could
not join n government of which
these people were members without
committing political suicide. At
Winnipeg n few days ago Mr. Mac
Kenzle wns presented with mi address to which he replied iit a large
public gathering. In tho bourse of
his remarks he referred to a number of public questions and showed
beyond doubt that his opinions are
such as to make it utterly impossible for him to join the present
government. Whatever hard things
may iJiuve been said against Mr.
Mackenzie while in public life,
there are very few even of his
bitterest enemies who will not admit his honesty. But if Mr. Mackenzie is honest he oould not form
a coalition with Sir John or Sir
John's cabinet.
'   Aii Important Event.
On the 3rd inst. the British Association closed its session at Montreal. Tho meeting of this association in Canada is an event of great
significance. It brought to this
country the most distinguished company of practical scientists thut
ever came togothor on the American
continent. These gentlemen have
had opportunities of making themselves acquainted with the wonderful resources of the Dominion, and
observing the great fields which exist, here for expansion and progress.
Canadians possess a reasonable amount of enterprise, but are not able
to develop tho magnificent resources
which lie on every hand because
there is a great scarcity of capital,
While the people of Great Britain
are often content to receivo two and
throe per cent, on investments,
thero are very few Canadians who
will be satisfied, with less than five
'or six. And yet there are plenty
opportunities for. investment in Canada where these figures could bo
realized with the most perfect safety.
It may be that, tho visit of the
British Association will so attract
publio attention in the old country
as to induce capitalists to enrich this
country and themselves with schemes
which shall be mutually beneficial,
Tf no other result should follow,
Canadians will not need lo regret
thut they interested themselves in
securing the mooting at Montreal,
It will undoubtedly have the effect
of advertising this country lo an
extent never before surpassed, £vnn
tjio New Yotk -Star snys: "A thous
and Englishmen of the solid, prac
lical, level headed sort that constitutes the membership of the British
Association cannot visit the provinces with the facilities that were
offered them to become acquainted
with the extent, resources, institutions, wid' character of thu people
without diffusing much correct information in England and dinsip.it
ing many errors und prejudices."
The Hallway Monopoly.
The 88th section of the specifications of Mr. Onderdonk's railway
contract contains the following provision: "At any timo after the rails
aro laid and tho truck be required
for publio traffic, the government
will' be at liberty to use it for tbat
purpose and to regulate the running
of all trains, so as to ensure safety."
It is no longer within the power of
the Dominion government to tako
refuge behind the plea that the railway belongs to Mr. Ondordonk, and
cannot be interfered with until it
has been handed over. The railway
is not only used for public traffic,
but Mr. Ondordonk has mado uso of
it to forco ull other carriers to tho
wall and monopolize the whole interior traffic. Having accomplished
this he puts ou a tariff which is
seriously interfering with trade. The
government noi only does not interfere, but takes the river mail service away from the steamers and
gives it also to Mr. Onderdonk, and
the service, in so far as a majority
of the settlers is copcerned, is so
wretchedly performed thut the whole
south side of the river is protesting.
Accidents go on multiplying, bnt nobody interferes. Tho people would
gladly use tho steamers between
New Westminster and Yale if they
could; but the railway contractor
will not permit them to run in opposition to his road, and travellers
must tako the risks of railway accidents. The remedy is with the
people themselves. A united and
firm protest would, we believe, force
the government to action.
Chinese Labor.
Tho ex-premier of Queensland
gives his views upon the Chinese
question in a, very clear and forcible
letter to tho Pall Mall Gazelle,
Among other things he says: "I am
all for whites as against yellows, for
yellows as against browns, and for
browns as against blacks. If I were
in Borneo I would be all for the
Chinese. They are the best workers in the world, and at S'ngopore
they havo made the unpromising
settlement a little paradise. It is
delightful to see Btreet after street
filled with well-to-do, comfortable,
happy Chinamen, industrious   and
Jerly. But when the question is not between yellow and
brown, but between yellow ond
wliite, that is another matter. In
Queensland we havo 13,000 Chhi-
—we used to hnve far more.
Now, £10 per head import duty is
levied upon every Chinaman who
lands in the colony. Even that
does not altogether keep them out,
for some planters pay thu tux for the
sake of the labor, and in the Chinese gangs which work on the sugar
estates we have us near an approach
to slavery as anything existing under the British flag. They work
for their own bosses. They dure not
oppose the will of the captain of the
gang, who does with them what he
pleases. We arc against the Chinese in Queensland; and why? What
has been the whole course of progress and civilization with us? Has
it not been the raising of the uver
age standard of comfort of the mass
of the people? That is to say, we
have prided ourselves upon nothing
so much as on inoculating the working man with new wants. We have
taught him to hate dirt—that is to
suy, we have made it a necessity
life that ho should have money to
buy soap and pay his water rate.
We havo taught him tp read, and
made a newspaper indispensable.
Wo have given him ideas of decency
and respectability wliich compel him
to pay a high house rent. And
then, after having created this com*
plex being, with all those artificial
wants und necessities which wc call
civilization and culture, ate we to
say to him, Work for as low wages
as this Chiiuman, who has no wants,
who lives upon garbage, and shelters
in a hole? It is undoing all the work
of the ages, and levelling down tho
civilized European to tho status of
the half-starving Asiatic. If we
allow it tho Chineso will overrun
Queensland, We do not mean to
let them; nnd whon I say wc I mean
ninety-nine out of overy hundred
white men in Queensland."

Not Abandoned.—The Bishop of
New Westminster advises us that the
statement which appeared in The Columbian some time ago to the effect
that the Church of England had abandoned Port Moody is "devoid of foundation." The announcement in The
Columbian waa certainly made in good
faith. In the Port Moody Gazette of
August 10th >te find the following: "At
the close of the service (on the 10th)
Rev. Mr. Blanchard announced that
the present one was his last service in
Port Moody, he having been appointed
assistant to Ven, Archdeacon Woods."
And, again, on the 30th August, the
Gazette says that "since Rev. Mr. Blanchard secured an appointment elsewhere, the Episcopal people of Port
Moody had been without a service,
and theco was left on thoir hands an
organ upon which only the first payment had been made." There has
boen no Church of England service at
Port Moody since, and the people
there have united in union services
which are being conducted by three
clergymen of other denominations
resident in this city. From the Lord
Bishop's letter it appears, however,
that the Church of England contemplate resuming the Port Moody service
at some future time.

New Hay Press.—Mr. E. Prengel
late of Colorado, is the inventor of a
new hay press whicli, possesses very
important merits. Last week hq finished one of these presses at this cityv
and on Saturday gavo an exhibition of
its efficiency in baling hay. The exhibition was witnessed by a number of
persons, and practical I men pronounce
the new press a decided improvement
upon any of those now used in this
country. Mr, Prengel claims that
with this press he can put up on an
average ten tons of hay per day. He
will average one bale every five minutes, whereas the ordinary press takes
seven minutes. Tlio Prengel press is
much more simple in operation. It
doestlio whole work itself; requires
no high pitching of hay, or tramping
down with the feet; needs only (wo
men and an ordinary span of horses to
run it; and will lost longer than any
other press. The hay is baled with
wire, and is pressed into about half
the usual size, making it much more
oompact and easily handled. Mr.
Prengel goes down to Mr. Mitchell's
farm on the North Ann to-day with
the press, and will be working there
for a fow days when farmers will havo
an opportunity to witness its performances. The presses are built at this
city, aud the inventor is prepared to
supply orders at short notico. A good
American press costs upwards of |000
laid down here, but Mr. Prengel guarantees to furnish the best press made
at the low figure of $325. Formers
throughout the province would do well
to inform themselves concerning the
merits of this new press. See advertisement in another column.

Fisheries of Canada.
Mr. L, F, Juncus read a paper before the British Association at Montreal, on the fisheries of Canada. After
referring to their extent he discussed
the question of their vulue, und claimed that tbey were the richest and most
profitable in the world. According to
the reports of the Fishery Department,
the value of the Canadian fish product in
1870 was 87,573,000. In 1880 it had
increased to $14,500,000, nnd bythe
latest report, that of 1883, it had
reached $17,500,000. Bo estimates
the value of fish caught and consumed
by the native population of Manitoba,
the Northwest, aud British Columbia
at $5,000,000, and of the othor provinces of the Dominion at $14,000,000,
making in all the sum of $30,000,000
as the annual value of the fish exported
and used for domestic consumption in
the Dominion, The paper then goes
on to prove by comparison thnt the
fisheries of British North America nre
the most productive of tho whole
world. In Canada we hnve 50,000 men
regularly employed in the fisheries.
Their labor, as seen by tho last official
return, produced fish to tho value of
$17,500,000, or $350 for ench fisherman. Coming to the fresh wnter fisheries, and dealing first with that of
salmon, fresh, canned, and pickled, to
the value of $3,000,000. The United
States is the principal market for fresh
salmon, and Great Britain of Bitlnwn
served in tins. British Columbia
is the most famous of the provinces for
Its salmon fisheries, the industry having already assumed large proportions.
In 1870 the catch was 3,000,000
pounds; in 1882 it had increased to
12,000,000 pounds. Tho capital invested in tho salmon fisher-.' of British
Columbia is estimated at over $2,000,-
000. In addition to the canned salmon
exported from British Columbia, over
5,000 barrels of salted salmon have
also beon exported, the demand for
the fish thus preserved being steadily
increasing.

Halifax, Sept. 2.—Another incident.of the perils of the Bank fishermen in fog came to light to-day iu tho
story of four more rescued men. The
fishing schooner Cymbeline, Cnpt.
Norman Oxener Lahave, arrived yosterday morning from tho Grand Banks,
having on board Wm. Gatheran, and
Jus. Gibbs, of St. John's, Nfld.; James
Mansfield, of Bay of Bulls, and Michael
Walsh, of WitlesB Bay, Nfld., late sou-
man of the fishing schooner Ten Brothers, owned by Allan Goodridgo &
Sons, St. John's, Nfld. Their story is
as follows; We left St. John's Sunday,
Aug. 17, for the Bunks fishery, anchoring on Tuesday 28 miles south of the
Virgin Rocks. At noon Tuesday wo
left the vessel to set trawls. The weather was very fuggy, and there wob a
strong tide at the time. We each
found the trawls all right, and in less
than an hour were uu our way back tu
the vessel; met each other, but could
not find the schooner. We rowed on
and on to find the vessel, but finally
concluded that it was useless, and that
the tide had drifted us
IRHETBIKVABI.Y OUT OP OUR COURSE.
After rowing round fur au hour or
two it cleared off but we could soe nothing; we accordingly gave up and decided to steer the best we could for
land dt the nearest point. We had a
compass in each boat, but uo foud
whatever and only a pint uf water between all hands. This was about 4
p. m. Wednesday. We kept on rowing all Thursday night, and next morning felt protty woll played out, but
still no vessel was in Bight. One dory
was thou very leaky bo all of ub gut into tho othor dory and sent it adrift, as
we concluded by relieving one another
aud taking turns wo cuuld hold uut
better, aud perhaps iu a few days
reach land or get into the track of
some vessel. About daylight on Friday morning we
HEARD   A STEAMER'S WHISTLE.
She was heading about north-west,
probably bound fur St. Julio's or Cape
Race, aud passed pretty close to us,
but ns we cuuld not make her hear us
we kept on rowing, and the sume afternoon saw a largo barque steering south
hy cast. Pulling for hur with all our
might we got near enough to soe the
man at the wheel, but could not mnke
out her ujjme, As we got toward her
she kept off and run away from us.
We hailed her and one of us stood up
and waived his coat, but, though they
must have seen ub, they paid nu attention and passed on. It was then blowing quite hard and it was nll we could
do to manage mir boat. Thero is no
doubt whatever thuy suw us on the
barque, and could have reseuod ub if
they wanted to, but they wero too
fiendish and inhuman. Onco moro wo
shaped uur course for St, John's, and
half dead pulled un in the dark, About
ten ur eleven o'clock we saw two lights
aud pulled towards them. We succeeded in reaching that nearest us, and
were taken nn board. Tho schooner
was the Cyubeline, at anchor fishing,
and wo wero very kindly treated by
those on board. Wu saw nothing more

Su fur, then, ns the lands north and
south of this portion of the railway aro
concerned, we may regard them as
valuable contributors to the traffic of
the road; and, judging from the faot
that with a population in the entire
North-West nut exceeding 200,000,
the surplus yield of wheat for the current yoar ib estimated at 7,000,000
bushels, soine ideu can be formed of
the traffic possibilities not a few years
hence, aud when a million of people
engaged iu farming operations will be
providing traffio for tlie Canadian Pacific. The very fact, too, that wood is
scarce in the fertile prnirie region suggests un extensive traffic fur the road
in lumber and coal — lumber both
from the east and tho west, and coal
from the Souris country, und from the
Saskatchewan, the Belly and the Bow
rivers. Thut there is an abundance of
lumber in the vicinity of Lake Manitoba, tho Lako uf the Woods, and portions of the Superior section, is not
less certain than that it is found in
abundance in the Rocky Mountains,
or that geologists, mineralogists and
practical minora unite in their testimony in regard to the wonderful extent and number nf the coal deposits
of the North-Weat. If "the proof of
the pudding is in the eating," the actual milling operations and the actual
consumption of a superiur quality of
North-West coal must set at rest all
disputes iu regard to the question of
the future, fuel supply of the North-
West, thus not only ensuring the settler protection against the winter's
culd, but providing the railway with a
remunerative and never-ending source
of traffic. As tlio North-West is not
likely tu become a manufacturing country, and as the protective tariff is not
likely to be repealed, it follows that
importations from the old Canadian
Provinces must always be on a very
extensive scale, guaranteeing a great
traffic from east to west, ft may be
well, also, to point out tliat in the
country lying along the eastern base of
the Rocky Mountains is found the
natural grazing ground of horses and
cattle, the choicest territory for grazing in the whole of the North-West.
Looking at what has been accomplished
in less suitable territory in Montana,
at tho demand for Canadian cattle in
England, und at tho advantage which
Canada has acquired in England
through freedom from disease in her
shipping stock, there cannot be any
risk in counting upon a grand development in cattle raising in the vicinity of
the Rockies, whero the pure and abundant mountain water, nutritious grasses, nnd a moderate climate combine'to
Sreduce the finest beef that has yet
eon seen in Canada, and fur the
smallest expenditure that has, so fur,
been known in any cattle-raising country. When the present local market
for these animals has, to a consider-
able extent, disappeared—ns it will
with the completion of the railway aud
the withdrawal of the Mounted Police
—the ranchers will look abroad for
their market, nnd this market can on*
ly be reached by means of the railway;
hence, a very important item of traffio
for the road, one which must steadily
grow with the increasing wants of
England's population and with the
spread uf information with regard to
the superior quality of the North*West
supply.
It is, of course, diflicult in the limits
uf a single article to indicate, even in
general tewij.this wide range uf traffic,
from u variety of sources, wliich a
groat railway such as this, spanning an
entire continent, is capable of creating
for itself. We may poiut out, briefly,
the shipment of North-West wheat for
consumption in parts uf British Columbia. As regards tho traffic to be created by railways running north from
the Canadian Pacific aud beyond the
North Saskatchewan River, opening
up immense tracts of the finest agricultural lands, and developing ultimately
the Peace River country aud other
regions whero prairie lauds abound—-
whether these railways be built by the
Canadian Pacific Company or, what is
quite as probable, hy ether railway
corporations—the traffic of the main
line must be greatly benefitted by
them. In this connection it may be
noted, m passant, that these "feeders"
will connect with regions where oil
flows in the greatest abundance—with
coal lauds, wheat lands, timber forests,
great grazing tracts, and other traffio
creating territory oi rust extent, and
only awaiting the impulse which will
ultimately bo given by cupital and
settlement.
On the whole, then, it would appear,
now that the Canadian Pacific Railway
is a fixed fact, that, without taking intu consideration the possibility of Us
becoming a great route for certain portions of the commerce of Europe with
China, Japan, and Australia, it stands
an excellent chance of handling an
enormous nnd remunerative traffic.
Tho railway stretches through every
variety nf climate and soil, ana will be
fed by all the products and industries
that are known in the temperate zone.
It opens up one of tho world's greatest
wheat fields, probably one of its greatest coal fiulds as well. The line from
Montreal to Port Moody places in Canadian territory the shortest of all

H£WS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORLI.
Berlin, Sept, 2.—A grand review of
the German troops took place at Potsdam
to-day, in celebration of tlie fourteenth
anniversary of the surrender of the
French at Sedan. The Emperor William
appeared on horseback to review ttie
troops, but waB overcome with fatigue
when tbe parade was about half concluded. He struggled to maintain an erect
position, but it was evident to the officers
of his staff that he was suffering great
distress. At their solicitation he consented to dismount and to enter an open
carriage, from which he viewed the rest
of the evolutions. The incident made a
great impression upon all who witnessed
it. It was evident that the aged Emperor was really ill and that even he
realized that the final breaking up of his
strength, which has so long beeu feared,
is now inevitable, and is close at hand.
The exercises ended dismally amid the
undisguised evidences of emotion on the
part of both soldiers and spectators. The
festivities that were to have been given
in the evening iu honor of the Emperor'
visit havo been indefinitely postponed.
New York, Sept. 11.—The Sun is
waging an energetic war on the rule of
ruffianism in this city. It brings to light
facts which show conclusively that protection is extended by our political police
system to the leaders of the worst gangs
that over disgraced the city. This morning's issue says: "An illustration of the
terror inspired by gang rule Ib shown in
the examination of Hat Judge, charged
with the killing of Frederick Itopf, on a
barge which was invaded by s King street
gaug. He was robbed of his watch and
money before breath left his body. Three
witnesses swore they saw Judge strike
tho fatal blow, with a lager beer glass,
Ouo twelve-year-old boy gave his testimony under such abject fear that the
Eolice justice openly declared the boy
t ad been intimidated. This revelation
indicates that the assistant district attorney himself stands in fear eithor of the
gang or Its political friends, .Indue
also seems to be on good terms with
some of the authorities. On Friday,
wheu Pauliue Cameron comparatively
identified him as the man who dealt tho
fatal blow, accused is reported as winking smilingly at Police Captain Croker.
Although a score or more of the gang
were engaged in the homicide, Judge is
the only one who has been arrested." The
Brooklyn Eagle, commenting on recent
disclosures, Bays; "The rowdy leader in
New York is a potentate superior to law.
The roots of thia evil reach down deep

The only available remedy is to divorce
the administration of police affairs from
politics.

uses. Our fight iB now, as it evor was,
a I'outrance, We have doue justice to
journalistic Skripetski, whose death, was
wrongly attributed to the violence of

A REMARKABLE STORY.
(Continued.)
"If you will not think mo an old
croaker, ma'am, I would say that you
retired from work too soon. That was
nhvnys my opinion. I said it at the
timo, and I say it again. To give up
beforo your time is Hying in the faco
tit Providence."
"I know that you nro fond of n fine
preacher, Mr. Rulo," said Cathorino
Vernon; "don't you remomber what
the Scotch Chalmers Baid, that our
lives were like the work of creation,
and that tho last ten years was tho
Sabbath—for rest 1"
"Wo are not under tho Jewish dispensation," said the old clerk, us if
that sottled the question.
Catherine laughed. Shu was seated
near old Mrs. Morgan, in the round
window, her carriago waiting outside
Mr. Rulo, who was n neighbor, having
retired upon a handsome pension, and
occupying a handsome house, had como
in to call upon the old couple, and
thoso two, so long associated in lubor
and anxiety, had begun, as was natural,
to talk on a subject which the others
with difficulty followed — the bank.
Mrs. Morgan nover did anything snvo
sit contontedly in her 'chair with hor
hands clasped, but tho captain sat by
the table, working away at ono of his
models of ships. He was very fund
of mnking theso small craft, which woro
admirably rigged, and built like miniature men-of-war. This one was for
Alick Vernon, the middle boy of Mrs.
Reginald's three. In tho back-ground,
half hidden by the curtains and by thu
captains's scat, Hester had taken refuge
iu a deep elbow chair, nnd was reading.
Sho did not want to hide herself, but
Bhe had no desire to be seen, and kept
in the background of her own will.
Catherine Vornon never took any
special notico of her, and Hester was
too proud either to show that she folt
tliis, or to make any attempt to mend
matters. Sho had risen up on her
cousin's entrance, and touched her
hand coldly, then sank back into her
former place, and whether any ono remembered that sho wns there at nll sho
did not know.
''If one works till sixty, ono does
vory well," MiBs Vornon said.
*'You did not think that applicable
to me, ma'am," said tho clerk. "You
would not let mo givo up till I was
near seventy."
"For the sake of tho bank—for tho
sake of the young men. Wliere would
they have been without a guide V
"Ah!" said old Rule, shaking liis
head, "there is no guide liko the chief.
They might turn upon me, and laugh
in my face, and tell me I am old-fashioned; but they could not sny thnt to
you."
"Well, well! the young meu, fortunately, have gone on very well, nnd
havo shown no need of n guide."
To this there was no reply hut a littlo pause, pregnant of meaning. Tho
thrill of the significance in it rouacd
Hester altogether from her book; she
had not boen reading much, to begin
with, and now ull her faculties were
awakened. She understood uo reason
fur it, but she understood if. Not bo
with Catherine, howover, who took no
notice, as so often happens to the per
son chiefly concerned.
"Thirty years is a long spell," she
said. "I was at it late and early, and
did nut do so badly, though I am only
a woman."
"Women, when they do take to
business, nre sometimes better than
men," suid the clerk; with nu accent
almost of awe.
"That is natural," said old Captain
Morgan, uver his boat, without raising
Ins head. "For why? it is not the
common women, but those of the noble
kind, that ever think of trying; so, of
course, they go further and. do better
than the common men."
1 'I don't think thnt ia a compliment,1
said Catherine, "though it sounds ft
little like one. -You have a turn fur
those sort of sayings, Uncle Morgan,
which seem very sweet, but huvo a
bitter wrapped up in them."
"Nny, he never was bitter, Catherine," said tho old lady. "He knows
what he is talking of. He means no
harm to the common women, for his
wife is one of them."
"We will not inquire too closely
what he means,." suid Catherine Vernon, with a smile. "Anyhow, it is
very sweet to be able to retire while
one still has- command of all one's
faculties, and see the young ones come
in. Of courso, one does not expect to
livo forever. We aro all in the Sunday period of our lives—all of us
here."
"Not I," said the old clerk, "with
respect be it spoken; I have had my
■  Sunday, nnd am ready to begin again
if there should be any need of me."
"Which there is not, thank God,"
she said, heartily. And again there
ensued that little pause. Was it possible she did not observe it ? No one
echoed the sentiment; no one even
murmured the little nothings with
which a stillness which has a meaning
is generally tilled up by somo benevolent bystander. What did it mean?
Hester asked herself. But Catherine
took no notice. All had gone so well
with her. She was not afraid of evil
tidings, Her affection for the young
men, her relations and successors, was
calm enough to secure her from the
anxious prescience of love. She took
her life, and all that was connected
with her, with that serene and. boundless faith which is the privilege of the
untried soul. Catherine would havo
resented, beyond everything else, the
imputation that her lifo was without
experience. Sho had gone through a
great denl, she thought. The evoning
long ago, when she hnd been told that
the credit of the Vernons wob at stake,
nnd. had roused herself to redeem it,
had been the highest crisis and turning
point of existence to hor. What had
happened since had been little in comparison. She hnd not known what
anxiety meant in the deepest souse uf
the word, and what had happened before was so long over that, though she
recollected every incident nf that early
time, it wat apart from all her afterlife, and never influenced her practical
thoughts. She did not pay any utton-
tention to that pause, .which might
have awakened her suspicions. Thore
was no foundation in her for suspicions
to build upon; she was bo suro of all
connected with her, and of herself, the
first necessity of all.
"I will never forget," mid old Mr.
Rule, after a pause, "that night when
I had to go and warn you that all was
lost unless you would help. What a
night it was! I recollect now the light
on Witon Street; the sunset shining in
tho Grange windows as X rushed
through the shrubbery, You. were a
young lady then, Miss Vernon, nnd I
could not tell whether you would do
it or not. Mrs. John, poor thing, that
I went to first, was never very wise—"
Here a sudden fit of coughing on the
jmrt of tho captain, nnd a stirring of
Hester in the back-ground, showed the
old clerk his mistake.
"I bog your pardon, Miss Heater,"
ho cried; "I wns just going to tell
something of your mother thut would
plense you. When I told hor we wonted ni'.moy, she ran to her desk, and got
out all sho had. It was twonty
pounds," said the old clerk, with a littlo laugh; "twenty pounds when wo
wanted twice as many thousands! But
what did thnt matter? Somo people
have laughed when I havo told that
story, and somo have been nearer crying."
Ho wns mi old man, and teal's nnd
laughter gut mixed up at that ago; he
wns nearly crying himself, at the end.
Hester's heart gnve a bound of mingled pleasure and pain. Perhaps even
she hod never dono justice' to her simple-hearted mother. She sat bolt upright in her chair, listening with nll
hor might. Cnthetino Vernon seemed
to retire from the principal place she
had hitherto held in the conversation,
and Hester came forward in her stead.
She looked at the old clork steadily.
"You Bpeak," sho aaid, "of ladies
only. Where was my father?" holding
Rule with hor eye, so that he could
not escape.
"Your father!" he faltered, his vory
lips quivering with surprise nnd consternation.
"I don't know why wq^hould bring
up ull these old stories to-night," said
Catherine, suddonly, "nor what lod us
to introduce the subject. Let bygones
bo bygones, Mr. Rule. We old fogies
have our little talks together, and toll
ovur our old adventures to amuso our-
solveo, for wnnt of something better;
but thnt is whnt the young onos never
understand."
"Do you wish mo to go away, Cousin
Catherino?" said Hester, with her
usual pale defiance, rising up with the
bood in her arms.
"Oh. no, not I. It does not mattor
in tho least whethor you stay or go,
I can remember, Uncle Morgan, when
tho same sort of thing I am now saying
to Hester you used to suy to me; and
it does not seem bo very long ago,
either. Now we are all old together,
and not much difference betweon us,"
she said, with a little laugh. It still
gave her a certain aniusoment to think
that she was old like these old people,
and yet it was true; for, though sixty-
five and eighty-five nre very different,
nobody enn doubt that sixty-fivo is
old. It wns still strango, nlmost ludicrous, to Catherine, tlint il should bo
so.
"I am of all ages," said the old captain; "for I can remember all. I'll
sail my bout with Alick to-morrow,
and onjoy it like a small boy (it's a
capital Httlo boat, and will sail, I £un
tell you, Catherine, if you took any interest in it); nnd then I shall walk on
tho common with a young lndy nnd
talk of poetry and lovo."
"Fie, captain!" said his old wife;
"but he does not menn nll thnt nonsense, HeBtcv."
If love is nonsense, and poetry,
she aud I will go to the stake for them,"
said tho captain. "Wo'll take a longer
wnlk to-night, my dear, to prove to
that old woman how wrong she is."
"I can't wish you a plensnnter thing,
captain; and now I must bu going,"
said old Rule, incuusoquoutly,
Catherine, who hnd been sitting
thoughtful since the moment when she
interfered, all unthnnked nnd misunderstood, to save Hester, rose when
the old clerk did, and went out before
him, with her rich blnck silk gown
sweeping nnd rustling. The presence
of tho elder poople mndo her look
blooming, nod capable and young. The
old couple watched her from tboir window, as Rule, gratified nnd beaming,
put her into the carriage.
"She looks young enough to do ua
much ngnin," snid Captain Morgan,
standing in the window, with his gum-
bottle in his hands, with whieh he was
working.
"Oh, captain!" said his wifo; "but
whero's lhe money?" shaking her old
head,
Hester, behind, peered out between
these two nged heads, pale with interest and antagonism and attraction.
She could never think of any one else
when Catherine was near, though all
her instincts were in arms against her.
The words that passed between the old
people were ua a foreign tongue to her.
She had not the slightest perception
what they meant.
Meantime Catherine spoke a warning word to her former prime minister,
whu had abdicated Inter thnn herself.
"You were very near giving that
child a heartache," she said. "Take
care not to say anything before her.
She need never know that her father
deserted his post. The creature has a
quick sense of honor, and it might
wound her."
"She is not like his daughter," said
the clerk, "nor that poor lady's, either.
She is one of the puro old Vernon
stock."
"Do you think au?" said Catherino,
indifferently. "I rather dislike her
thau otherwise; but I would not do
the child any harm." And then the
fat horses put themselves in motion,
and she gave a smile and a bow to nil
hor retniners and worshippers; and the
Miss Vernon-Ridgwnys drew awny
from Mrs. John's window, whore na
usual, they hud been watching Catherine, as she, amid nil those visible signs
of her wealth and sovereignty, disappeared from their eyes.
"I suppose, Captain Morgan," said
Hester thnt evening, when she wulkod
out with him, as usual, "that Cousin
Catherine was young once?"
It seemed an absurd question, but it
was put with tho utmost gravity; and
Hester knew what she meant, ns per*
haps the reader will, too.
"About your ago, my dear," the
enptnin said, promptly, "und not nt nll
unliko you."
"Like me!"
"You think you are vory different
now, but there is not muoh more difference thnn thnt of yenra, She was the
snmo kind of girl ub you are—mastor-
ful—very suro that her own way was
the right one—obstinato aa n mnle in
her mind,'but not so difficult to move
by tho henrt.
"Am I nl) that?" suid Heater, wondering; "not in Borne things, for I am
never sure that 1 am right -or any one
else—oxcept you, perhaps. No, it is
the other way! I nm vory aure thnt I
ntu wrong, and every one else •-except
you."
"A largo rule and a small exception,"
snid tho old man; "but it is the same
thing. Catherino was rich, and hnd
everything hor own way. You aro'in
tho midst of a poor community, whoro
we can hnve nothing our own way.
And, nt your nge, you can't discriminate any more than sho cuuld at hers,"
"Then does it come to tbis, that
money ia everything?" asked the disciple, with some bitterness, but without,
ns mny be supposed, the slightest intention of accepting the master's teaching on this point.
