current Events and Opinions.
The movement for the total expulsion of Ohinese from Washington Territory goes on. After the
lst of November it is believed
tliere will be very few Chinamen
in the territory. With very few
exceptions the people of Whatcom
have signed a paper pledging themselves not to patronize Ohinese
either directly or indirectly, und in
almost every community the celestials have been advised to leave.
Tlie people of Oregon are alarmed
nt the influx of Ohinamen from
Washington Territory since this
movement began, and Oregon will
probably bo next to move against
tho Ohinese.
The British Columbian.
VOLUME 28
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. 0., SATURDAY, OOTOBER 24, 1885.
NUMBER 34
The British Columbians seem to
have made a point 'ngainst Snnator
Mclnnes who is reported to have
left the province to reside in Toronto. According to the British North
America Act a senator "shall bo a
resident in the province for which
he is appointed" and his scat shall
become vacant "if he ceases to be
qualified in respect of property or
of residence," If Senator Mclnnes has really abandoned his province tho senate, under the law,
abandons him. But then his absence from British Columbia may
be but temporary.—Toronto Mail.
But if Senator Mclnnes had remained steadfast in his allegiance
to the Tory party, we don't think
the Mail would have contained
this paragraph.
The British tribute of u memorial
sorvice in Westminster Abbey on
the day of General Grant's funeral
recalls tho fact that twenty-seven
years ago the flags of New York
were hung at half-mast, and the
great bell of Trinity Church was
tolled, for an English general. On
the 25th of November, 1857, General Havelock, tho hero of the Indian mutiny, died at Lueknow.
There were no submarine telegraph
cables in those days, and tho news
did not reach Now York until tho
laltor part of January, 1858. It
was then received with the respectful demonstrations to which wo lmvo
referred. It was America, therefore, which set the example of paying homage to the brave, irrespective of the land wliich gave them
birth. — Frank Leslie's Illustrated
Newspaper,
in consequence of it, and looking
bock over the month's agitation one
cannot fail to see that the result is
a happy one, The rejoicing over
such a condition of affairs must be
all the greater in that this result
has been accomplished without the
slightest violence and without the
slightest attempt at violence. Not
a single Chinaman has been molested in this city; not one has lost a
penny's worth of property. There
has been no panic. Tlie process
has been principally oue of freezing
out. Arguments havo been presented to employers of labor which
induced them to dispense with the
help of Ohinamen. Unable to secure work, the next thing for the
foreigners to do was to leave, and
this they have done and ara doing.
No shadow rests upon the name of
Seattle, and notwithstanding gross
misrepresentations from the outside,
the peace of the city has been undisturbed,—Seattle Post.
Farmers are, as a rule, strong
temperance men, and they object
decidedly to the sale of liquors of
any kind on the fair grounds. Tho
ordinary "side-show" is of no possible good, except to pay a small
revenue. To offset this it takes
twenty times as much out of the
pockets of the farm boys, and leavos
nothing in their heads except the
very things they should not learn.
* * * Why not make the moral
atmosphere as pure as thnt of tho
home circle? Farmers take their
wives and children there, and surely
they do not wish to have them contaminated by evil influences. It is
a fearful responsibility which the
mHungers assume when for a few
dollars they license, antl thus directly countenance, tho many disropu
table things that are so often allowed
to pollute many a fair ground, and
which without this countenance
would be completely shut out. We
never could quite understand how
decent, moral, Christian mon could
so stultify their manhood. We
hope the fairs of this years wi
uot bo so cursed. Tliere is a great
room for reform. Why uot begin
this yearl—Jfural New Yorker.
There is a sort of international
question developing on the northern
frontier in relation to the Chinese.
These people are forbidden to enter the United States, unless they
had previously resided here and can
exhibit certificates for the establishment of that fact. They are also
forbidden Lo enter the British territory lying contiguous except in
regulated numbers and on paying
$50 per head for the privilege. In
this state of the case, Coolies are
lauded in British Oolumbia and
sneak into the United States. Our
officials ou the border, whenever
they can lay hands on these interlopers, send them back. But now
the British authorities complain
that Chinese may in this wuy be
forced on them who have not paid
the required head-money. The restriction act runs against Ohinese
no matter where they start from.
When they try to enter illegally
they are to be returned "whenct
they came." As a matter of fact
all tlmt have boen refused admission
are supposed to have been reshippod
to tho British colony of Hongkong
and not to China. It does not
mako any difference whether they
are returned to Hongkong or British Columbia, provided in the first
instance they camo from these
places. If there is a grievance in
the matter, British Columbia has a
sure remedy, namely, to so register,
classify or mark its Coolies that it
will be able to identify them if they
are thrown back on its hands. If
the two governments should put
their heads together, however, in a
friendly way, there will be no difficulty iu reaching a solution. They
are both bothered and annoyed by
pestiferous Asiatics who seek to
enter where they are not wanted,
If both governments should agree
to put every one of them who could
nob account for himself, found on
cither sido of tho line, ou board tho
first ship departing for China, thero
would uot be much more trouble
on this subject. Let tlie Coolie
prove tbe legitimacy of his presence
or take the consequences,—S, F,

Thore are few who are unwilling
to admit that the imti-Cliiuese agitation, bo far as it lias gone in
Seattle, haa been productive of the
greatest good. The number of Ohinamen who have left the city in
consequence of it iB large. A visit
to the Ohinese quarter will convince
anyone that those who remain will
not stay long. Idle and aimless,
they wander about the streets or
bask in the sunshine. Tlie bustle
and activity which of old characterized the quarter is totally lacking. It is evident thnt jf the present state of affairs continues the
entire Ohinese colony muBt be withdrawn from Seattle within a short
time. Iu tho trills nud factories
whoro Ohinamen were formerly employed, only whito workmen are
now to te seen. Tho same amount
of work ia being done, and it is
evident that where Ohinamen have
stepped out Americans havo stepped
in. The benefit of such a cbnngo is
not confined to tlie workingmen
alone. It is felt by tlie peoplo of
every cIubb, by tlie merchant, the
manufacturer and the professional
man,     Business has felt no shock
The Machine Clerk.
According to the Swedish papen, an
ingenious native uf that country it
about to patent in Washington m machine to sell cigars, a sort of automatic
clork, so to speak. Tho maohine is
very popular in'Sweden, but it will
not take in this country, because it U
nut provided with a slate, on which to
"chalk it duwn." The motto of the
intelligentarraugomentis, "Nu money,
uo cigar." The machine is n cast-iron
box, with compartments fur fivo, ten,
fifteen, and twenty-five cent cigars.
Thu purchaser plnces his money ou an
opening made for it, prem-eH a button,
tho coin disappears and a cigar pops
out. If yon try to foul th* machine
by ottering it a nickel for & ton-emit
cigar, it will take in the nickel and
wait fur the rust uf thu dime. If a
particular brand of cigars happens to
bu exhausted, tho nutchiuu- hntigs up
tbo sij-n, "Suhl out." Wo are nut informed what tho contrivance would do
in case an attempt wore mado to palm
utl' a lead coin un il, but wu presume
it would seizu the woyid-W swindler
by the napu of tho nonk and yell, for
tho polico.— Pittsburgh Chronicle.

union's must significant service to man
has been as a measurement uf time.
The only perceptible effect which the
earth has upon the moon's courso ia
tbat uf attraction, by which its routo
in space is slightly deviated. From
the moon's present condition we may-
inform ourselves of the course of all
planetary life. There is every reason
to suppose that our present condition
was at one time hers; that she possessed an atmosphere, water, animal,
aud vegetable life. That has now
passed away. Hor surface is a sterile,
rocky mass. The atmosphere has gone,
or nearly sn, and the seas aro dried up.
Thu same process is going on with uur
earth, and a similar result will eventually onaue, but hy reason of tht

It would, perhaps, not be profitable further to pursue the discussion ou defences at present. The
Colonist of yesterday accuses Thk
Columiuan of suppressing clat-qg
wilfully. The accusation is without foundation, for The Colombian
plainly stated that Major-Gen. Middleton's report was dated the 30th
December last,und everybody knows
tliat parlinment met since that
date, W ith respect to the governor-general's declaration, it carefully
avoided reference to Battery C, and
does not touch the point at issue.
Nobody ever proposed to leave Victoria and Esquimalt without protection, but the Colonist declares
that these are the only places that
should be protected in tlio whole
province!
Vigorous Declarations.
Upon the occasion of the dedication of St. Bridget's Church, Kil-
dare, Sir. Parnell, who was recoived
with groat enthusiasm, made a vigorous political speech. After referring to the events of the past
four years he said: "The question
whicli is the absorbing topic, the
root of all other questions, is that
landlords are standing upon the
brink of a precipice, and are doing
their best to get pushed over, while
endeavoring to get blood out of a
stone. Land during the last year
has not earned judicial rents, yet
Irish landlords are about to enter
into a conspiracy to exact judicial
rents whicli are not more sacred
than others. We never have compromised our position by accepting
the land act of 1881, ov judicial
rents, nor have we given away the
right of the people to turn on judicial rents if they should be unable
to pay them. The land act will bo
amended in tlie very near future,
either by an English or Irish parliament so as to bring about a further reduction of judicial rents of,
at least, thirty or forty per cent.
The new democratic English parliament will not be so tondor of the
rights of landlords as thc last one
was. I do not suppose that the
new democratic parliament elected
by household suffrage in England
will continue to go on paying twelve
thousand Irish policemen for the
purpose of extracting rack rents for
Irish landlords. Would it not be a
wise thing for Irish landlords to
recognize this situation iu time to
see tliat if they aro not reasonable
they will be thrown overboard altogether?" Ft will be seen from these
utterances that Mr. Parnell professes to be very sanguine of the success of his scheme of Irish independence.
Entirely Astray.
In a late issue the Week expresses
regret and disappointment because
the Globe has pronouncced ugainst
the Chinese. "The only possible
objection to the Chinese workman,1
says the Week, "is tliat he labors
for a small wage. The same fault
has been found with the Irishman,
tlie Frenchman, and the Uermun.
The difference is merely one of degree. All tho enactments of all
protective governments will fail to
suspend the economic law which
regulates wages, and without that
.lohn Chinaman will obtain employment so long as his greatest offence
is selling his labor cheaply." This
is not the tirst time the Week has
expressed its views on the Chinese
question, and every time it speaks
on that subject it gives proof of its
failure to comprehend what it undertakes to discuss, It may havo
happened ill some instances that
Irishmen or Frenchmen or Germans
havo incurred the displeasure of
Canadian workingmen on account
of working too cheaply; and the
fact that there is no movement on
foot to prevent these people from
coming to this country shows that
ttie Week's comparison is at fault.
Olieap labor is undoubtedly one of
the reasons why tlio Chinese are
distasteful, hut it is only one, -Germans, Frenchmen and Irishmen
come to this country with a view to
becoming permanent citizens. They
become naturalized, enter into our
political, religious and social schemes,
and quiokly become identified with
our poople and absorbed as a part
of the nation. With tho Chinese
it is altogether different. Their object in coming to Canada is not
improved citizenship but improved
linanees only. They come to make
money, and the moment that am
bition has been sufliciently gratified
they pack up their money and their
substance and go baok to China,
They bring their religion, their cos*
tumei, their  social  customs, • and
thoir nasty habits with them, and
Ilii'V Luke no interest al all in tlio
civil, religious or domestic usages of
onr society. They are a foreign
community; among us just as much
as they were in tlie land of their
birth; antl they can never be assimilated with us because they ave detested by thc great bulk of tlie
people. It is not the cheapness of
Chinese labor in the abstract that
makes them so obnoxious, but because by cheap labor thoy gain a
foothold in the community and exclude others who would make desirable citizens. A Chinaman is
not a citizen in any sense of the
word. He exercises none of the
rights of citizenship, and brings
nono of its benefits. Ho is good
for nothing in case of war or emergency. By his cheap labor ho prevents others, who woultl make
worthy and desirable citizens, from
coming to our shores, because no
respectable whito man who exorcises the privileges and assumes the
responsibilities of citizenship can
live and be respectable on Chinamen's wages. The workingmen arc
the producers of the nation, and if
the Week believes that they may bo
judiciously exchanged for Chinamen, it shows profound ignorance
of the whole situation.
opinion advanced by Mr, Muller.
Probably not one of our readers
who has had auy experience in educational mutters will find it diflicult
to recall instances in whieh great
injustice has been done by making
a final examination of a few liours
tlio sole test of one's knowledge.
It is au undoubted fact that many
of the examination papers are prepared in such a way as to leave

Value or Examinations.
Max Muller, whose right to be
heard on any question touching educational systems will not be disputed, has pronounced most emphatically against examinations as a test
of knowledge. Ho declares that an
examination is simply a lottery, and
that as a method of determining
what use a student has made of his
opportunities it is uncertain and
mischievous, because it classifies upon grounds which ave unjust. We
bolieve this, or something liko this,
has often been felt by every person
who has liad opportunities for ob
serving the practical results of competitive examinations. It often
happens that a student whose mind
is capable of holding temporarily a
great many things, without the
power of ever digesting any of them,
obtains more murks in an examination than one who is infinitely his
superior in mental power and educational attainments. Muller's experience in examinations leads him
to remark that: (1) All examinations are a means to ascertain how-
pupils liavo been taught; thoy ought
never to be allowed to become the
end for which pupils are taught;
(2) Teaching with u view to examinations lowers tho teacher in the
eyes of his pupils; learning with a
view to examinations is apt to produce confusion, ignorance, and a
pretentiousness in itself dishonest.
There is, unfortunately, a very positive inducement under most educational systems to run into the very
errors mentioned, and wc are not
quite sure that theso inducements
are entirely wanting even in British Columbia. People are accustomed to judge a teacher's efficiency
by the number of his pupils that
succeed in passing the examinations,
and the number of marks they obtain. And, indeed, this seems a
most reasonable ground upon which
to form a judgment. Thero are,
however, many things besides education that determine a person's
standing when judged by an examination. The remedy suggested is
one in the justico and efficacy of
wliich we have tho fullest confidence. Instead of depending upon
a final examination to determine
the standing, every daily recitation
should be tuken into account. Let
tho recitation marks of the session
count for two-thirds and the final
examination one-third, and the pupil
will be very likely to obtain strict
justice. There can be no better
test of a pupil's knowledge than
the daily recitations. A person
whose daily lessons are badly digested ought not to pass tho final examination, and lis recitation marks
would necessarily debar him from
doing so, On tho other har ", the
pupil who always stood well in thc
class room, although he might make
a comparative failure nt the examination, as many do, would not necessarily lose his standing. This system has obtained in somo of the
Canadian universities, and we believe it is open to fewer objections
than tho one generally adopted in
which everything depends upon a
final examination. On the other
hand wo havo Professor Goldwin
Smith, whose experience and attainments are by no means small, declaring his opinion in tho following
sentences: "A mere lottery it cannot be if it is conducted with tolerable eare and judgment. The
results usually correspond very
closely with the opinions previously
formed of tho candidates by their
teachers any their classmates. Reasonable anticipations are at least as
seldom disappointed in tho result of
an examination as they are in prnc-
tical/life." With all respect for
Ppof. Smith, we nre inclined to tho

Contemptible.— A very contemptible and most untruthful letter appeared in tho Port Moody Gazette referring

any schemes at Coal Harbor, and tho

uot havo doomed the letter worthy of

the fllmllkameen Mines.    |
Among the passengers who came
down by the str. Adelaide on Wednesday was Mr. K. Silverman, of Victoria, who has just returned from
Granite Creek. Nows from this new
gold region is must encouraging. "Cup
tain" and Jenkins have beeu taking
out from 8280 to §400 pur day, and
the claims are operated dny aud nifjht.
Some prospectors have obtained 88 to
$10 to the pan. Chance, the original
discoverer of tho diggings, who had
been away two months on a prospecting tour, returned a few days ago.
He has found a new gold Held about
75 miles south of Allison's, the exact
location of which he does not now wish
to disclose. This new find, he thinks,
will pan out richer than Granite Creek.
Ho Btaked off claims for himself and a
number of friends, and brought out
n dust and some very rich looking specimens of quartz. At Granite
Creek wages are from S3 to $3,50, and
excellent board can be had for §7
a week. Supplies of all kinds nro
abundant, and prices rouBouablu.
Saloons, however, are multiplying, nnd
drinking and gambling are becoming
very prevalent. These traps will make
the history of mining at Granite
Creek a repetition of that which has
boon found at other mining regions
— the miner takes out the gold, and
it is immediately taken from him hy
the saloon keepers nnd gamblers.
Great numbers of claims havo gono

■I* determined to squeeze themselves into

Mr. VanHornbCominu.—It is Btat-
ud that Mr, W. 0. VauHorne, general
manager of the C. P. U., is now on

of Ihe present mouth. It is expected
ho will arrive at tho junction just in
time to drive the lust spike, but the
ceremony will be without any special
display, hb it is not intended to open

When Mr, VanHomo arrives here it

Chinese Voters.—In Toronto, Out,,
several resident Chinamen have become naturalized British subjects, nnd
are entitled to voto. But the assessor
has been sorely puzzled to know how
tliese celestials Bhould appear on the
voters'lists. "It is not the custom,"
sayB the Globe, "among Cluheso laun-
drymen to place their namei on tho
sign board nt their fronts. The stun
is simply the English for somu motto
in their own language, which thoy
think is lucky. An intelligent China
mnn, living on King-street East, whose '
proper name is Chung Fong, has been
treated like his other brethren in tho
city, and the assessor lias used his sign
lo designate hia namo. "YootLny"'
aro the words on the board outside bis
door, aud the words appear on the assessment rolls. As a matter of fact
Fong says "Yont Loy" is tho English
mode of spoiling phonetically tho Chinese words for "como in." In othor
words the Chinaman has placed an invitation at his door for customers to
come in, and tin* assessor, who, of
course, adopted tho general rule, assesses "come in" ob a ratepayer, and
the same person, nu doubt, will have a
vote under this peculiar namo."

Forestry.—Mr. R. W. Phipps, employed by the Ontario governmont iu
connection with forestry, publishes an
interesting letter on the caro of young
trees, from which we take the following: "By nll means leave nu young
tree without mulching during its first
years of growth, unless you adopt the
equally good or botter plan of stirring
tho aoinfrbtfhd, widens tho branches
spread, and as deep as you cau without
hurting the small rootlets, two or three
times n summer. Then, if ymi have
buen so wise as to plant some square
seres, so close that thu wind cannot
injure their early growth, the falling
leaves will stay there and form tliu
natural manure of] tho trees. Do not,
1 beg uf you, burn tliese; nature lights
uo tires under her trees. But, if your
trees are single or iu rows, the leaves
will blow awny, and in that cirae, if
you can, in addition to stirring or
mulching, give eaoh tree a little manure, so spread as neither to como rank*
ly into contact with tho roots, nor too
strongly to infect tho air with ils odor,
you will soon sou how readily tree-
trunk and branch and spreading wealth
of leaves will repay your care. The
true receives its nourishment first from
tho roots, a nourishment whieh passes
upward to the loaves, and is there
greatly changed and added to by contact with the air. It then passes to
every part of tho tree, giving ench its
addition of growth. Tho woody substance—that which tire transmits to
the atmosphere, leaving ashes behind
—comes principally from the air. It
will thus bo Been that the mulching
with pine sawdust cannot give tho tree
its woody substance, aa that is supplied
by tho air. As to the influence of the
nine sawdust on tho ground, it has
long been considered injurious, even
when it had, by being used as bedding
In stables, been permeated with what
by itself would liavo been a valuable
manure. It ia, therefore, inndvisable
to uso it for mulching, though hardwood sawdust, or hardwood chips, or
straw, leaves, or coarse manure, aro
all excellent. At this season of tho
year, to Bpeak of nnother branch of
the subject, I may stato that the seeds
of tho hard maplo, beech, oak, hickory, ash, pine, and other evergreens,
are ripening, and that those who moan,
in a couple of years, to start plantations, might save great trouble und

portions of tho track mid made such
arrangements that the danger from
snowslides, etc., has almost totally
beon done away with. In one portion
of tho track in the Selkirks the grndo
is rather heavy, but that will disappear
when the permanent way ib constructed. You ask for my idea as to tho
future of tho C, P. R. I was always
deeply impressed with thu importance
of the construct ion of this linu uf railway, but 1 never felt or understood its
truo value to Canada as I do at the
presont moment. At uo vory distant
(Intu lines of steamers will ply between
Hongkong, Yokohama, Australasia
aud the western terminus of the line
at Port Moody, uniting thu commerce
of Australia, China and Japan with
that of the ^)ld World. I have no
doubt Canadian lines of steamers will
run between San Francisco and British Columbian ports, thus making the
interchange of trade between Canada
and the United States, and utilizing
our shorter lino across the continent.
This, with the extent of our fertile
lands, the mineral wealth of British
Columbia and the limitless tracts of
valuable timber, must render this great
enterprise, thia international highway,
successful; and ns it thus develops the
resources of our ctuntry, receiving its
own life-giving support in so doing, it
gives an impetus to Canada."

London, Oct. 22.-~Iu an interview today, Fitzpatrick, Kiel's Canadian counsel, said: "It is impossible to pretend
that Riel was unfairly tried. No doubt
at the time of the outbreak iu thc Northwest grievances existed which have since
been remedied. Kiel commenced the
agitation from purely political motives.
Matty people still consider that he rendered valuable services to tho country.
Doubtless the excitement again induced
in Kiel mental aberration, rendering him
incapable of keeping the rebellion within
legal limits. On the scaffold Kiel will
become a martyi; iu prison or in an asylum ho would be forgotten." In the fnce
of the conflicting medical evidence iu
Kiel's case, Fitzpatrick advocated the
appointment hy the Canadian government of a commission to again examine

St. Petersburg, Oct. 22.—The 'Journal de St. Petersburg, commenting on the

Alexander appears to ignore tlie fact that
that his admission to the powers is duly
created hy the treaty of Berlin, and there
has been no intention on the part of Bulgaria to return to slain quo ante. It regrets the action of Servia and Greece in
ordering formidable armaments, and declares that Russia, more than any other
power, must prevent fratricidal contests
in the Balkans. The Journal is pronounced in its denunciations of Bulgaria
for having brought nbout the present
state of affairs, aud nays the powers are
unanimous in a desire to restore the xtatn
tpio ante, and although such an nctioti '
bristling with obstacles and pitfalls, tins
unanimity justifies hope of success,

p.m., with Oapti. Paul aud Charles

During half an hour tho balloon went
through a Hurioi of evolutions to test
the screw, and at 5:30 the machine
was headed against the wind to the
north, passing uver tho'Mcudon station
and crossing the Seine at Poiut du
Jour. As a proof of, tlio headway
made it may bo mentioned that tho
ballast thrown out, instead of falling
perpendicularly, formed a kind of horizontal tail to the balloon ns it shot up
in thu direction steered. At Point du

round and mako its way back with the

Tho next morning tho Hon. Mr,

inspected the various products and was
very much pleased with the evidences
presented of the agricultnral capabilities of tho province. Thu grain and
vegetables were very line, the industries woro very fairly represented and
tho people seemed thoroughly alive to
the value of exhibitions. Tlio grade
of cattlo was not very high, but a
pretty tine Durham hull was exhibited,
whilst the horses were good. New
Westiniuster itself has grown greatly

EniToit CoutiimAN.—For some time

Columbian requesting all persons selling
intoxicating liquors on board vessels, or
by wholesale, to take out a license for
that purposo under the provisions of the
"Dominion Liquor License Act of 1883
and Amended Act." Will you kindly

Maple Ridge, Oct. 21.
[The clause of the Dominion act relating to vessel licenses is as follows: "A
vessel license shall authorize the master
of the vessel, being a vessel by whicli
passengers are conveyed from one place
to another within or beyond the Dominion, to sell or dispose of liquor during
tho passage of the vessel between such
pla.es, to any passenger on board such
vessel: Provided always, that it shall not
permit tho selling, or disposing of any
liquor, except at the regular meals served
on board such vessel, and then only to
actual passengers: and provided further,
that it shall not authorize the opening or
keeping of a har or placo ou board such
vessel, where liquors are sold or drunk."

It ^ appears that Bismarck again gives

IIOU'MBIA STRUKT.
Jyllo Nl-iiroiieuiis la India,
Theroy nre 140,000 Europeans in
India. Tlieno are scattered over tho
land. The soldiers ate in places
deemed bost fitted for strategic purposes, sometimes as regiments, frequently as a moiety of regiments,
very seldom in small bands. Non-
military Europeans are most numerous
in the Presidency cities—Calcuttu,
Madras and Bombay; but oven in theso
they form a very small part of tho
population. For instance, thoy aro
only 5,000 in Calcutta, which has a
population of 600,000. They are found
in small numbers in the great cities of
tho interior, such as Delhi, Agra and
Allabahbad, At tho headquarters of
districts there ave u few European
officials, and generally a fow mm-
officials. Many of our people aro very
solitary, living often at a groat distance
from their European brethren. In
our survey of Europeans in India we
may begin with English sailors in Indian porta when thc census was taken,
and who, we suppose, were included
in it. The character of our Bailors at
homo and abroad is well-known. Thc
restraint on board ship during long
. voyageB is followed in most cases by
license on shoro. hi a country liko
India the licenso has ofton taken a
peculiarly revolting form. Ouco, when
Bailing down the Hoogly, wu had as a
fellow*passenger an old inhabitant of
Calcutta, who pointed out to us a grove
near ono of tho places where large vessels wero often anchored for days,
whero thu sailors wero allowed to land,
where scones wore enacted which in
vileness could not havo beun exceeded
by the worst orgies of heathen nations.
Such scenes wore no longer witnessed,
but still, when on leavo from their
ships, with many the nrog shops and
houses of infamy are the favorite rosort.
Tho more respectable natives dread
them, and keep aloof from them, but
a class of low natives pander to their
vices. While there is still much to
deplore in our .sailors, much has been
done and is being dono for their improvement iu character and conduct.
Not a few have become decided christians, and the wickedness of many
more has beon restrained. Their treatment on board ship is better; the voyages are shorter; many aro on board
steamers that are never for a long
period at sea; many can read, aud
much is dono to supply thom with
good books. Wo have mentioned that
of the 140,000 Europeans in India no
fewer than 63,000 aro soldiers. They
form a very important and indispensable portion of tho community. Lot
them bo withdrawn, let it bo known
all over the Indian continent they are
withdrawn, and our government would
Bpeodily collapse. Wo do not say thut
our government, because alien, rests
mainly on force. It rests largely on
tho good will of tho nations of India,
and that good will rests on f'"iir being
wisely and justly ruled. But in tho
ambition and interests of various
classes thero aro elements nf strife
ready to burst into a desolating storm
if unrestrained by the knowledge of n
power which cannot bo successfully resisted. Neither is it just to suy that
our army is maintained to fasten down
a foreign yoke on .he neck of India.
It does maintain our power; without
it in tho great mutiny wo should havo
beon swept away, but it maintains our
power to preserve peaco and order ull
over tliis continont. If withdrawn,
wo believe scenes uf bloodshed and
anarchy would soon he witnessed such
as tho world has seldom aeen. Wo
may well attach a high valuo to a body
of men so indispensable for our security
nnd the fulfilling of our national voca-
tion.-7ViV.iVi Quarterly Review,
tho voico is thrown, then transmitted
through tho magnet to tho wire. Tho
receiver is similar, but has a smaller
inagnet. It is claimed by the inventor
that ho can transmit tho voice around
the world or across the Atlantic ocean,
thero being uo limit as far us distance
is concerned, all that is necessary being
tho increase of tho size of magnets.
Aii Extraordinary Invention.
Over three years ngo, says the Fort
Worth Dtmomd, Fred. H. Brown began tho work of studying out an invention, an idea which had como to
him that a telephone and telegraph
instrument could bo mado which would
work without a battery. For three
years ho toiled and thought, but
seemed no nearer the goal than when
ho started, until one night iu February last, about 2 o'clock in tho morning, he awoke suddenly from sleep
and found the invention in his mind.
Cold as it was, he jumped out of bod,
lighted a lamp and begun to work.
In n fow months he had perfected an
instrument and tried it at home. Ho
at once determined to go to New York,
but boforo his departure sold tho right
to England to George S. Frankol and
G. H. Shiittlerj to France and Germany, to W. E. Keyc, who a week
later accompanied Mr. Brown cast.
Tho electricians 'of Mr. Gould und
Mr.' Mackay inspected the invention
carefully and then the Western Union
Telegraph company and Bell Telephone company scut men to Washington to .see if the method could uot be
patented, but Mr. Brown had provided
against all contingencies nnd had
patents covering everything. Tho immense vnluo of the invention was bucii
by J. J. Safeley, a capitalist, who
brought it to tho notice of Austin
Corbin, ti millionaire. Hu formed a
company and through Mr. Safeley
bought the right to (ho Unitod States
for 81,000,000, paying 8250,000 to
Mr. Brown in cash and giving nmplo
security for tlie payment of 9750,000.
Mr. Brown returned to Fort Worth
early this week, disposed of his property hero and on Thursday night loft
with his family for Now York, whero
he will reside.
Whon ho left Now York Bonanza
Mackay was nei-utiatiiig for Canada,
which id held bv tho inventor at §1,-
000,000. Mr. Brown alao brought
word that a wealthy man wanted
England and was willing to pay a largo
sum for it, which will induce Messrs.
Fruiikel and Shuttler to go eaat iu
thirty ov sixty days to look aftor their
interests. Mr. Kayo, the owner of
thu right for Germany and Franco, is
now in New York and will leave in a
lew days for Europe.
When Mr. Brown roaches New York
a cable test will bu made over 5,300
mileH of cable, twice the distance
norma tho Atlantic. Instruments for
this tent will be oompleted early next
week. A test was made in New York
nut long ago over 800 miles of wire
and the instruments worked ns clear
an a boll. In a few days 100 tulles of
wire will be stretched on Long Island
for tents of all descriptions. As Boon
an possiblo the company in Nuw York
will get to work and organize sub-coin-
piuiies in all the stales, when a revolution in telephoning and telegraphing
will surely result, Tho invention ia a
magneto telephone and telegraph without a battery—a now system of transmitting tho sound uf the human voice
without using batteries of nuy kind.
Tho instrument used was composed of
two oiino i of wire and a half pound of
steel, an., eon be mado fur 25 cents.
The transmitter ia simply a horseshoe
niugnet, either polo being covered with
fine wiro carefully coiled. The armature Is a disc of steel, against whioh

Christianity and Human Want.
No ono who has given n thoughtful
attention to Christianity in what it is
and what it proposes, and also to human nature iu what it is and whnt it
needs, can fail to have perceived how
wonderfully nnd mercifully tho former
ia adjusted to the latter. Tho more
profoundly one meditates on this adjustment, the more will ho be impressed alike with the fact and its significance. God haB made no mistake in
the religious system which ho hns constructed for tho acceptance and faith
of men. They want juat what he has
given them, and they want it more
than anything else of which it is possible to conceive.
Human nature, when passim' boyond tho domain of its presont experience, and stepping into the realm of
thinga spiritual and invisible, hns, in
all ages and countries, beeu confronted
with this great question: "What is
truth V It has never perfectly satisfied
itself with ita owu answer, lt wants a
belter answer ; one stronger and more
authoritative than nuy which its own
unaided powor can supply. Such ia
the conclusion reached by tho deepest
and best thinkers of tho raco. God,
iu tho Christian system, meets this demand by a supernatural revolution of
himself, placing that revelation in the
language of the earth, attesting it by
signs and wonders in proof of its divine origin, and thereby disclosing his
nature, purposes nnd plans to the children of men, thus giving them something whieh they can safely believe,
und on which they cau rest with unshaken confidence whilo making tho
journey of life. Simple aud childlike
faith in thia revelation, or, rather, the
God who gave it, ns the final and absolute authority touching all tho matters of wliich it treats, is the prime
condition uf mental relief to human
thought. No matter how much or
how little we may know, or how long
wo may speculate, wo must at last believe God and believo what ho says,
and bolieve it because ho says it, or
find no certain resting-place for the
soul. Those too wiae for this simple faith are too wise for their own
comfort. As a balm to thought und n
power fur comfort, it j is worth more
than all the speculations ever heard of
since the world began.
Every human being finds himself indicted before the bacof his own nature
by the consciousness of sin, with the
resulting fear of punishment. He may
not always think uf this fact, nnd may
in words sometimes deny it; yet there
nre times when it stares him in the
face, nud fills him with guilty apprehension. There is no consciousness
among men more universal, unvarying
than that of sin; and thero is no want
ao profound aud soul-acarchitig aa that
created by this consciousness. Gud
understands our experience and our
necessities in this respect; and, in the
Gospel of Christ, he has supplied a
complete and all-sufficient remedy for
Bin and sinners, and made it available
to all, as a full, sure, and eternal salvation, upon the BJmple condition uf our
acceptance, placing the whole upon the
baais of hia infinite mercy. So saya
the Bible. Christ ia the end uf the
law for righteouanosa to every one that
believeth, oven though his sins be
scarlet, or red, like crimson. Guilt
does not necessarily destroy nil hope,
nor shut the door of Paradise against
thc sinner. Pardon opens that door
to the believer, and God welcomes him
ns a guest in Heaven, Grace stands
over against sin, and meets the wholo
exigency which sin creates. It cures
the evil and cancels the penalty, aud
guarantees safety to the believing sinner. Salvation iB what men want;
and this is just what they find in
Christ,
Death is on tho truck of every human being; and, however common the
event to the race, no one, uninstructed
by revelation, can tell, with any satisfactory certainty, what will be the
effect of death upon him; whether he
will survive the event, and if he does,
what will be the character and state of
his existence thereafter. Our experience in this life novor passes to the
other sido of death; and nu ono who
haa died ever returns tu tell ub what
death wob to him. The event, too, ao
far as our observation oxtends, seems
fearfully destructive. The organized
body is no sooner dead than it begins
to go back to duat; and in a short timo
it is a body no longer, Henco the
great question of the nges: "If a man
die, shall he live again ?" Simple reason
ataggera under the weight of thia question. What shall alio say to horself,
und how treat the problem that relates
to an after-life? God answers this
question in his Word. Tho aum of
the answer ia that life and immortality
nro brought to light in the Gospel of
news from a far-off land, and that this
Gospel, to those who receive it in faith
and love, tills the wholo horizon with
exceeding glory, making their afterlife the perfection of condition aud the
perfection of character, reconciling
them to death, taking away its sting,
dispossessing thu grave of tho victory,
and enabling them to say: "For we
know that if our earthly houso uf this
lnbernaclo#wero dissolved, we have a
building of God, a houao not mnde
with hands, oternal in the heavens."
Tho richest imagery nf earth is laid
under contribution tu paint in (.-olden
lines the attractions ami charms of the
celestial lifo unto which death introduces the believing soul, and whieh,
once begun, never cuds.
The oue iden we are sucking to Impress upon our readers iB thnt Christianity, as wu find it in tho Bible, is
adapted to our situation, and in thia
respect just the religion thnt wo want.
It salutes our faith with the averments
and the authority ot Gud. It solves
the problem of salvation from ain und
lis curse. It radiates und relieves the
gloom of death with light from another
world. Many good gifts have como tu
earth from thu groat Fathor of Light;
yot tho "unspeakable gift" hns comu in
the person und thc work of Christ.
Our greatest wants uro those which ho
meets. Our purest juya uru those
whieh he inapirea. Our wisest life ia
tho oue ho prescribes. Oursupremest
good is in the immortality whicli he
discloses and guarantees. The wonder,
ia, that any one who has the knowledge
of his Gospel, should su live as nol, to
.'thare in ita benefits, und aubject him-
self only to tho curso whicli it threatens.—A. Y. Independent,
New York sendB out another bug un
behalf of the Bnrthuldi statue. The
sum now wanted ia $40,000 tu nuy for
putting tho pieiTa of the goddess together, providing' tho iron skeleton
which ia to.Mustuin hor,and sotting
her up on her pins.
