We harp before us a copy of the
Canadian penitentiaries report for
tlie fiscal year ending Juno, 18S7.
From this it appears that the total
number of persons confined in the
five Canadian penitentiaries at the
close of the year was 1159, a decrease of 41 from the previous year,
whioh is certainly very gratifying.
While crime in Oanada grows less
tho inspector calls attention to the
fact that it is increasing rapidly in
the United States. In that country
thero are 45 state prisons, which
bave cost tho large sum of $16,000,-
000, and the cost of the criminal
establishments of the United States
altogether is placed at $400,000,000.
The number of conviots in the various Canadian penitentiaries on the
30th June last was as follows: British Columbia, 89, a decrease of 16;
Manitoba, 83, a decrease of 7; Dorchester, 153, an increase of 4; St
Vincent de Paul, 280, an inerease of
2; Kingston, 554, a decrease of 28.
It will be seen that the principal
decrease has taken place in British
Columbia and Ontario, The value
of buildings, lands, appliances, etc.,
in connettion with the penitentiaries
is stated to be $2,841,013, distribnt
ed as follows: British Columbia,
$280,516; Manitoba, $258,640; Dorchester, $401,999; St Vincent de
Paul, $618,553; Kingston, $1,281,-
305. Full statistics are not given
from all the penitentiaries relating to
the social and religious condition of
the convicts, but we have the following: Of the conviots received into
Kingston penitentiary during the
year there were 51 married and 101
single; 24 could not read, 9 could
not write, 119 could read and write;
21 were total abstainers, 110 were,
temperate, and 21 intemperate. Ol
those received by St. Vincent peni
tentiary 42 were married and 62
single; 19 could not read, 17 could
not write, and 68 could read and
write; 52 were temperate and 52
intemperate—no total abstainers; 86
were Roman Catholic, 12 Ohurch of
England, 3 Methodists, 1 Presbyterian. Of those received at Dorchester 12 were married and 39 single;
there were 16 Roman Catholics, 15
Churoh of England, 9 Presbyterians,
7 Baptists, 4 Methodists. Of those
received at the British Columbia
penitentiary 16 were married and 4
single; 11 were whites, 6 Chinese,
and 3 Indians; 8 were Roman Catholics, 6 Protestants, and 6 had no
religious pretensions; 6 were natives
of China, 4 of British Columbia, 4 of
"Canada," 3 of Ireland, 2 of England, 1 of the U, . of the 20 there
were 11 laborers; 4 were sentenced
for life, 1 for 12 years, 1 for 7 years,
2 for 5 years, 1 for 4 years,, 3 for 3
years, 1 for 2i years, 7 for 2 years.
The value of labor performed by the
convicts in this penitentiary is estimated at $10,639, and the valve of
produce, etc., raised on the farm was
$5,459 From the chaplain's reports
we learn that of the whole number
of 89 convicts in this penitentiary
38 are whites, 35 Ohinese, 14 Indians and half-breeds and 2 colored.
Thore were 56 under care of the
Protestant chaplain and 33 in charge
of the Roman Catholic chaplain.
Tha inspector notes that in this institution there is no organ for the
chapels, and advises that instruments should be procured to nid tho
religious service. In his report the
inspector makes some very severe
comments on the conduct of the Dominion government agont and engineer, who reside in Victoria, for
their neglect of the interests of the
establishment, and their discourtesy.
Both the warden and the inspector
speak very highly of tho services of
the deputy-warden and the schoolmaster, and recommend for them an
increase of salary. The warden reports the conduct of convicts generally good. He complains that the
water supply is deficient inasmuch
as the force is not great enough to
make it available for fire purposes.
The source of supply is the glen,
and the filters are not what they
ought to be. He mentions a number of improvements that are needed,
among others a new wing, a residence for himself, and a barracks
for the unmarried officers. The
officers of the penitentiary on 30th
June were as follows: Warden, A.
H McBride; Protestant chaplain,
Rev. R. Jamieson; Roman Catholic
chaplain, Rev. E. M, J. Horris;
deputy-warden, James Fitzsimmons:
surgeon, Dr. Trew; accountant and
schoolmaster, W, H. Keary; trade

LAST NIOUT'S DESPATCHES,
THE K1S1IE11IES COMMISSIONBllS.
Washinoton, Fob. 16.—The text of
the treaty makes about 4,000 words.
What the American Gsherinen may or
may not do within throe miles of ths
coast promontories iB the burden of the
song, and the legal phraseology of the
the document is the result of the united
efforts of the Hon. S. D. Thompson,
the Canadian Minister of Justico and
Secretary Bayard. Throughout the
many meetings of the commissioners
during; the three months it haa lasted,
the discussions were practically confined to the secretary of state and Sir
Charles Tupper. In the sessions boforo theJ holiday adjournment, Mr.
Chamberlain delivered legal shots, pre-
frared by Sir Charles Tupper, but in
ate meetings Mr. Chamberlain, like
tho British minister, Sir Lionel Sack-
ville-West, largely confined himself to
casting ballots. "1 am rosily very
glad at tho outcome of our protracted
visit here," said Sir Charles Tapper
to-day to a representative of the
United Press. " It means the end of
all tho fishery disputes, and the American people will be satisfied, I am assured, when the treaty will have been
read by them." Mr. Chamberlain
gives a dinner on Monday night, and
leaves here the noxt day Mr New York.
He will sail for England on February
25th.
THE IMPMtUL FAKLIAMEKT.
London, Feb. 16 — In the houso of
commons this evening, Mr. Labouchere asked the undor foreign secretary
if any dispatch had been received from
the British ambassador at Berlin which
suggested that England gave assurances to Italy that would induee her to
enter the iustro-German alliance, Sir
J. Ferguson again declined to produce
the correspondence which bad passed
" ~"ee4'heEnglish and Continental
governments, reiterating hi. statement
that ho did nut deem it advisable. Mr.
Labouohere gave notice that ho would
offer an amendment to the address that
the houso should be informod definite-
ly that no correspondence had been exchanged with Italy which had resulted
in biiidtntt the aotion of England in
tho event of a war between Italy and
France, or if any assurances bad been
given that they should be communicated to the house. Mr. William
O'Brien then resumed the debate on
the address. Mr. Balfour's methods,
he said, had been a failure in all directions. Abject discomfiture and disgrace had attended the administration
of the crimes aot everywhere He neither felt woundod nor degraded by his
imprisonment. He challenged tbe
government to prove that he had sheltered while in prison, behind the plea
of illness, What the imprisoued members complained of was the moral torture from which ordinary criminals
are exempt. When asked to acknowledge kinship with criminals they hod
replied: "We will die first. You will
bave to learn the difference between
the representatives of the criminal
classes and political prisoners, even if
it takes a coroner's jury to announce
tho distinction." Tho coercion act
had not only suppressed tho national
league, but it even suppressed the
single village club. Every evicted tenant had been restored and every shilling of law costs incurred had been repaid as an indemnity by the landlords.
Sir H. E. Webster, tho attorney-gen-
oral, declared tbat Mr. O'Brien's
speech was nothing moro or less than
an incitement to violations nf the law.
The alleged alliance in 1887 between
Mr. Parnoll and tbo consorvntivos, he
said, had been denied by Lord Salisbury and Lord Randolph Churchill,
and by Mr. H. Oswald, and also in a
letter written by Mr. Pamell himself.
Mr. l'nriir'll. interrupting, said tho lot-
tcr was correct. As far as he was concerned ho did mrt know of nny noiio-
tialions between Mr. O.rvntrl and Mr.
Justin McCarthy. The latter had
stated that Mr. Oswald had said that
if tho conservatives enure inlo power,
coercion would bo droppod. Sir it. E.
Webster, continuini*, denied that thu
coercion act had not been suucossfully
administered. Tho fact that the league
meetings were now held secretly, he
contended, was a great gain to law nnd

t gailtj British tEolutnbian
Irldoy Evenlnt, Fell, 17. HUB.
Our cotomporary of the "Vancouver Heralds, entirely misapprehends, us ho commonly does, the observations made by this journal a
few days ago on tho mail route between the mainland and Nanaimo.
Our cotemporary assumes tbat wo
are opposed to the establishment of
a new route from Vancouvor. Wc
offered no opposition to such a
route, but merely intimated that if
the proposed change contemplated
tho abandonment of tlio present
route from tbo Fraser River, the
people of this city and a large portion of the district would vory decidedly object. Tho Herald's column of nonsense is, therefore, entirely wasted. It claims that the
people of Nanaimo nlone should
havo the right to say by what route
their mainland mails should come;
but have not the people of Westminster just as much right to sny
by what route their mails shnll
come from Nanaimo 1
If the provisions of the fishery
treaty just signed at Washington
are at all fair to Canada, everybody
will rejoice at the peaceable and satisfactory adjustment of a matter
which seemed to threaten to interfere seriously with the otherwise
cordial relations existing between
tho two countries. It is not at all
likely tbe treaty concedes to Canada all that she claimed or was fairly
entitled to, but it is a great deal
better to surrender some of the
privileges that belong to us than to
perpetuate and increase a dangerous friction between two nations
which ought to be on the most
friendly terms. Tho exact nature
of the treaty will uot bo known until it has been brought before tHo
threo governments that arc parties
to it, and until thon intelligent
criticism would be quite impossible.
In tho meantime we can only hopo
that it will prove satisfactory, and
lie accepted as a final settlement of
the difficulty.
We are glad to seo that the city
council proposes to move forward
with public improvements. It lias
passed a resolution declaring the expediency of erecting a city hall with
council chamber and other necessary
apartments, and has made application for the old gaol sito as being
best suited for that purpose. Application has also been made for tbe
park adjoining tho goprnmont house
glen to be converted into pleasure
grounds. Wo very much hope these
applications may be successful. The
park belongs to the city by right,
and all the government needs to do
is to confirm the evident intention
of those who prepared the original
city plans. The old gaol site be-
longs to the government, of course.
But it is unoccupied, and in all probability will never be occupied for
government purposes. When the
new court house is built it will probably not be built on that site at
all. Betides, the city surrendered
the large reserve west of Toronto
Place to the government as a site
for the new gaol, and, therefore, has
a valid claim on the old site. There
should be no difficulty in obtaining
possession of both these pieces of
land, the condition being, of courso,
that the park shall not be sold, but
reserved for all timo as public
ground for recreation and pleasure.
It is muoh to lie regretted that
nothing hat been done yet towards
procuring the erection of a suitable
building for a publio library on the
lot recently conveyed to the city for
that purpose by the Dominion government.
We aro sure a majority of the
people of this city will be gratified
to know that our representative in
the provincial legislature appears to
be pursuing the wise policy this
session of refraining from offering
any factious opposition to tlie government. Mr. Bolo's voico has not
very often been heard, nnd, as a
rule, his utterances have been marked by judicious moderation. Wc do
not know whether this change is the
result of a oonviction in his mind
that the policy of the government
is worthy of being fairly considered,
or that he will be able in this way
more effectually to serve the interest! of hit constituents; or, possibly,
it may have arisen from very natural disgust at the conduct of Mr.
Humphreys, who seems to have assumed the leadership of the opposition party, There are certainly not
many poreons in the house who will
be content to follow such a leader,
or even be recognized as members of
a party in whioh he has been assigned
a prominent place. Whatever may
be the cause of the apparent ehango
in Mr. Bole's attitude, we think it
will be likely greatly to increase his
utefulneu u a representative. No
member who offers unreasonable
opposition to the government can
hope to accomplish much for his
constituents. It it not good policy
to abuse snd misrepresent the men
from whom assistance is asked. We
do not believe any member should
pledge himself to support a government through thick and thin, nor do
we think tbat he should ally himself
to thoeo whoneoppotitionitoarrietlof-
ten beyond they limiU of Mrnesi. A
man may be jnttaihonorable and just
mmsmmmmmmgasBamm
as useful to his country when op
posing the government as when supporting it, if the opposition confines
itself to a contention for honest
principle; and Mr. Bolo will be far
more likely, by his moderate course,
to obtain for this city the justice it
oxpeots than if he pursued tlio tactics followed by Mr. \ 1 umphreys
and some other injudicious members
of the opposition.

CAHT* OX TIIE 8ICK-IIOOM.
The nirk-room must be constantly sup-
,;rlicrl whir fresh air.
Admit Iho (rah air in such a way as to
•range no rrtrong current of air near or
.nbout your patients ;| if tbe window is
.open, shut the door, except in very warm
and still wr-atlicr: remember that you
can oftentimes open aloe window with
linfety anrl benellt when it would he
highly dangerobs to open a window looking toward the direction from which tho
■ wind comes.
^ As a rule, it is better to drop a window
k'rom tbe tbe top, than to raise it from
^be bottom; cool air, being heavier, descends, and when introduced high up in
the room, thus freshens tho atmosphere
more thoroughly.
Light is also nn important thing in a
'sick room. Tho Hirnhcrtin is a great
1 purifier, and it is only in some affections
i of the eyes, iu tbe acute rtages o' some
diseases', ami iu certain nervous rli-rerrses
1 tbat it is desirable to darken a sick-rrnnrr.
!,You can easily contrive to admit plrnry
of light without allowing it lo lull in siren
a way as to lio uiinleiisiint to your patient**, and a cheerful outlook from tlie
. window certninly hastens tn roiivales-
icence. At iiightmiike sure thattho lamp
[or candle docs not siivku or smell, nor
(ttlie gas leak; anil place your light in
I such a way that it throws uo shadow on
the wall or ceiling near (lie patient. The
nervous system is apt lo he so weakened
by long or severe illness that a little
thing—a mere shadow, for Instance—
which in health would be unnoticed may
produce most disastrous efl'ects.
Cleanliness and order should reign in
the sick-room. A well person seldom inhabits one room more than eight hours
>daily, whereas a Hick person inhabits it
all tne time. Dust with a slightly damp
cloth, and sweet), if there be u carpet,
rvith a hard brush and dustpan, having
previously sprinkled the carpet with wet
tea-leaves.
Tbo feeding of tho sick is a large subject, and one which is worthy of being
treated in considerable detail, hut I ean
only venture on a very fow bints here,
IseeK to make tin' food of an invalid, if it
is only a cup of tfi'ttel, as inviting as possible, and never prepare any food in tlio
sick-room. Let the tray bo covered with
a clean napkin, H every utensil he
scrupulously clean and bright inside ami
out, and do not hike awny the Utile appetite which a sick person 'has by bringing
large quantities of food at a time. It is
far better to bring too little than too
much, as a further supply is easily got.
'.et everything lie the best nf its kind
that yon can get; nu egg which is tlio
.east stalo, or milk iu the slightest degree
sour, placed before n sick person may
easily take away his appetite for the
whole day.
| Suppose the doctor ordera a cup full of
milk pr beef ten, for instance, every two,
..hree or four hours, and the patient's
itomach rejects it; try then atabiespoon-
folata time, and, if that is rejected, a
'.easpoonful or even leas. I say delib-
irately that on such points as these
hinge sometimes the issues of life and
Heath.
Incidentally it may here be mentioned
!,hat for irritability of the stomach there
is generally nothing better than cracked
(ice, tbe lumps being allowed to melt hi
the mouth; and I will now tell yen. a
simple device which prevenfe'the ice
irom wasting, nnd makes one supply last
tor a number of hours. Take a deep
bowl, holding perhaps A quart, and a
niece of coarse flannel oblong in shape,
md about twice as long as it is broad;
then fasten the flannel with string or
■liistic in such a way around tho bowl as
v form a flannel cup within tlie bowl,
Knelling only half or two-thinls tho dis-
anco to the bottom of the latter. Then
■ut the cracked ice into the flannel cup
nd cover it over with the spare flannel
bich serves as a flap. If yon have no
oaree flannel, fine flannel can be used,
ut you should then punch a small hole
1 tbe bottom of the cup.   The idea is to
eep the ice dry, tlie water running
brough into the bowl below tho flannel.
MARKETING FOB MUTTON AND FORK.
Mutton should he judged by its fine
rain, good color and white fat; and
imb will speak tor itself on much tho
ame principles. If the latter has a
reenisn or yellowish cast, it is stale, and
nSttoeat. The very best as well as the
heapest part (or stews is the breast.
his part can be bought at four or live
ents a pound, and a breast weighing
hreo pounds would make an ample stew,
ir main dinner dish, for three or four
rown persons with lively appetites. If
be rind of pork is tough and thick, then
: is old; if it is thin and springy, then it
t young, and young pork is most desir-
i-)le. When pork is fresh, the meat will
* smooth and cool; if clammy, it is
tinted, and shouldn't be touched with a
ortjr-foot pole. In choosing bacon, see
hat tht rind is thin, the fit firm and of a
eddish tinge, and the lean of a good
olor and sticking pretty fast to the bone,
t is then good, and not old. If you're
jarticulw about ham, just stick a sharp
rnlfe under tho bone. If it comes out
rith a clean, pleasant smell, it is good,
u' the knife is daubed and has a suspic-
i us scent, don't buy it.—New York Sun.

'Ihe gentleman who asked a crowd Oi
answer to bio question in tbo following
purngragh from the llotlon Ilitdget:
The invention of the valve motion toa
steam-engine wns made by a mere boy.
Newcomer's engino wns in a very incomplete eoiuliiion from tho fact that
there wns no way to open and close the
valve except liy means of levers operated
by hnnd. Ho set up a Urge engine at
one ol the mines, and a boy (Humphrey
1'olter) was hired to work these valve
levers. Although this is not hard work,
yet it required bis constant titt ntion.
As ha was working tbe engine he saw
thnt purls of the engine moved in the
right direction, nnd nt the same time he
hrirl lo open und clos the valves. He
procured a strong corn nnd made one
cinl fust to the proper part of Ihe engine
and Iho other end to the valve lever, and
the hoy hurl tiro sHtisfntrtion oi seeing
the engine movo with per.ect r.gu.rrr.ty
ol motion.
A short time alter tho "oromnn eamo
mound and snw the buy playing n arrr.es
ut the door, hooking nt the engine he
saw the ingenuity of tho hoy, and nlso
the advantage of his invention. The
ideu suggestod by tlie hoy's inventive
genius was put in practical form nnl
made the steam-engine nu tuito.rr.itic
working muchino.
The power-loom is tho invention of a
farmers boy, who had never seen or
heard ofsuch n thing, lie whittled out
one with his jack-knife, nnd alter he had
it all done with greal enthusiasm he
showed it. to his father, who nt once
knocked it to pieces. saying that ho
would bave no boy about him that
would spend his time on such .'ooiish
things. The boy was sent to a blacksmith to lenm a trade, uud his muster
took n lively interest in him. Uo mnde
a loom of w.'.nt wns left of tbe one his
firth; r had broken up and showed it to
h.s'uinsTer.
The blacksmith saw that ho had no
common boy as un apprentice, and thnt
the invention wns a valuable one. He
had a loom constructed tinder the supervision of the hoy. It worked to their
perfect satisfaction, nud the blacksmith
turnisbed tbe means to manufacture tho
looms and tho boy received half the
profits,
In about a year the blacksmith wrote
to tbe boy's father thnt bo should bring
bomo with bhn n wealthy gentleman
who was tho inventor of the celebrated
power-loom. You mny he able to judge
bf tbe astonishment nt tho old home
when his son wns presented to him as
tho inventor, who told him thnt tbe
loom was the same as the model tbat ho
had kicked to pieces hut a your before. Our 1'atcnt Utticu shows many
useful nnd ingenious inventions made by
boys.
Ibe Wonders of Common Paper.
To tbo Japanese we are indebtod for
tbe disr overy that paper can be mado
into hundreds of articles for human use.
At the Atlanta exposition were to be
teen a most extraordinary variety of articles which had been made from common puper pulp. These included car
wheels, kitchen furniture, wash-basins,
tubs, trucks, nud even houses. A car
wheel mnde of paper will run 2,400,0011
miles without bieaking and is stronger
than steel cr iron, nnrl then it is
much cheaper. Taper is of
str'enatn.   A twisted note of
I'jiglund will not tear even though three
hundred nnd twenty-nine pounds' weight
is suspended from tlie end ot it. Paper
cun be compressed so bard that it will
tear n chisel into pieces if tbe latter il
held uguinst it. One of the great values
of paper is that it cun be made to take
ihe place of wood. Furniture made of
it lookB like black walnut, and is really.
stronger as well aa cheaper; indeed,
there is now less danger from the wasting of our forest trees than there was before the various uses of paper were dis-
covered. .Stoves are made oi paper and
nre so incombustible that it is impossible
to burn them; it is possible even lo
make a steam engine of paper. In short,
it has been found that the linen fibre
from which tbo best paper is made will
in the future be as valuable to mankind
as wood or iron,
A l'unctaattoa roal..
Tho following article forcible illustrates
the necessity of punctuation. It can be
read in two ways, making a very bad
mini or a very good man, the result depending on tno manner in which it it
pttni'tuated. It is well worthy the Btudy
of teachers and pupils;
Uo is an old and experienced man in
vii e ami wickedness he is never found
opposing the works of iniquity ho takes
delight in the downfall of his neighbors
he never rejoices in the prosperity of bin
fellow creatures he is always ready to
assist in destroying the peace of society
he takes no pleasure in serving the tara
be Is uncommonly diligent in sowing
discord among bis friends and acquaintances he takes no pride in laboring to
promote the cans? ol Christianity lie lias
not heen negligent iu endeavoring to
stigmatize all public teachers ire makes
no exertions to subdue his evil pa slons
he strives hard to build up .Satan s kingdom ho lends no aid to the support of
the Uospol among the heathen he contributes largely to tho evil adversary he
pays no attention to good advice he
gives great heed to the devil he will
never go to heaven he must go where
ho will receive tho just recompense ol

The New Parcel I'ost.
Now instructions have been received regarding thu new system of parcel post between Canada aud tho United States. The orders provide tlmt
with reforeneo to all postoffice parcels
cuutaining dutiable goods sent tu the
custom house by postmasters thu pur
ties to whom addressed must bo notified by postal card unless iu cases
whero promptly called for and duty
paid. Tbo collectors are instructed
that they must not in any caso change
the address. With respect to parcels
to bo sent to other parts of Oanadi
they aro to return the package to tho
postmaster, taking a receipt therefor,
thus relieving the customs officers of
any further responsibility. The same
rule must be observed with reference
to parcels to bo returned to the country from;.wHence they came. They
will first be returned tu tho postmaster, who will forward them to the
postuffice department at Ottawa to be
dealt with by the dead letter branch.
All parcels unclaimed must, at the end
uf each montli, bo returned to the
postmaster from whom roccived, lo be
dealt with tlie same as in cases beforo
mentioned.
<'<>niit\ Coal FIclilH.
It is reported thnt the Hon. Robert
Dunsmuir hus completed arrangements
for opening und developing his coal
lands iu Comox. The Perservercnco
and Union mines are to be worked
first und tu ,bo followed by others within the railway belt. Preparatory to
carrying out this work a party uf choppers, surveyors and laborers will bo
scut nortli next Monday to begin tho
work of clearing, &o. It will require
some time and a considerable expenditure of capital, fully 8500,000, tu complete tho necessary preliminary work.
Mr. Dunsmuir's object is to produce a
sufficient quantity of conl to supply the
home market as well us that of Sun
Fruncisco. whose daily demands are
largely increasing. It is ulsu stated
that the extension of tho Esquimalt &
Nanaimo Railway to these mines will
shortly follow as tt natural consequence.
Had it not been for the late unfortunate awidtsnt at Wellington, the work
thus outlined would have been undertaken some time since. Mr, Dunsmuir's daily output will thus be largely increased. Should tbe proposed
changes in the United States tariff become law and coal be admitted free of
duty, the advantage to Mr. .Dunsmuir
will he equivalent to a very lartre fortune.—Ft'c, Times,
