Thursday Evening, Oct. HI. lta.
Provincial Rights.
Hon. Wm. MoDougall has writ,
tun an opon letter to Mr. Mercier on
tho question of the disallowance of
Provincial legislation by the Federal authorities. He reviews anil discusses at length soveral clauses of
the British North America Act
which confer the veto power, and
reproduces tho views of several of
tho -'fathers of confederation" on
the subject. He refers particularly to the most recent attempt at encroachment on Provincial rights by
the Federal government, and concludes:—-'Why this new departure!
Why this attempt to destroy the
legislative independence of provinces by an unconstitutional use of
a dormant power! Can it bo that
the laws and general interests
of the Dominion imperatively
demand itt What lam and what
general interests demand that the
people of Manitoba shall be prevented from building a railroad
within their own limits, for their
own use and at their own cost!"
After claiming to have been one of
the early advocates of a Federal
union of the provinces, Mr. MoDougall continues:—"I regard this
sinister attack upon the Federal
principle-of our constitution with
grave apprehension. If we allow
Manitoba to be over-ridden, what
province will be able to-resist a
similiar invasion! I rejoice, therefore, that you have proposed a conference of provincial premiers and
representatives for the purpose of
organizing the provincial forces. If
you march in solid phalanx on the
lines of the constitution, as explained and advocated by some of the
very men whonrenowsoeking its destruction, you will soon vanquish
yourenomies, and will deserve, and
I hope will receive, the encomiums
of all true Canadians."
The Caflarel Affair.
London, Oct. 12.—The OaA'urel-
Limouzin case in Paris is a sad
scandal. Madame Limouzin is a
vulgar adventuress. She is forty-
one years of age—a littlo yellow,
wrinkled, limping, humpbacked
creature, with small, piercing eyes,
extreme volubility of speech aria
considerable elegance of language.
Last year she lived in the Boulevard
Beaumarchais with a companion
who called herself Comtesse de
Boissier, Baronne de Beauregard,
or Marquise de Clemenca, and whose
real name is Henriette Boissy, a cc-
cotte of the commercial type, who
used to keep a house at Paris
where you drank tea, played baccar-
et and placed a louis under a candlestick each time you took the cards.
Madame Limouzin also lias a husband, an adventurer of smaller calibre. This trio carried on the business of an "influence agency" for
the benefit of persons desiring em
ployment in the Ministries, promotions, government contracts, etc.
Well in view in the drawing-room
were visiting cards of eminent political personages, on which were
writtsii a few words,cards and writing being forged if necessary. The
dupes on entering were struck by
this mise en scene and the first interview ended by a deposit destined to
grease the palms of tho Ministers,
Senators, Deputies and other notabilities, with whom Madame Limouzin professed be on the bust of terms.
In reality Madame Limouzin nml
the "Comtesse" passed their time
writing politicians—notably M.
Thibaudin and General Boulanger- -
letters containing flattery, threats,
calumnies, offers of service and propositions of a most compromising
character. Both M. Thabaudin
and General Boulungor finally warned the trio, through tlio police, to
ceaso their mrinmuvrus. Then Madame Liniouziii and the "Oomtesso"
quarrelled uud the former removed to
a georgoussuite of rooms itithoAveti-
ue Wagrutu, where she continued
her agency and entered inlo relations
with t'enerul Oriftlirel, nn otlicer who
was overwhelmed with debts und had
no longer nny sense of honor or cle
ceucy. The ".Oouitessq," iii-bt. of nil,
denounced hor former accomplice to
the police; then followed complaints
from various sources, and at length
the police proci'rdeil to wuteh Mn-
liiiiiic Limouzin, thinking it was
simply n question of one of those in-
n'uinemiile flush agencies whicli
abound in Paris, that paradise of
adventurers. The inquiry led fur-
thor than wns expeutnd. A detent-
ive sent to entrup Mrtdnmo Liniouziii was taken by her to the Ministry of war nnd Introduced to General Call'nrel, to whom the detective
handed a sum of money, in return
for whioh, it was understood, he
would^ecoivethecross of the Legion of
Honor.    This  suprising discovery
brought matters to a crisis. The
Minister of war, in'the presence of M.
Rouvier, interrogated General Caf-
farel, who confessed. Time was
then implicitly given him to blow his
brains out, but he did not have the
courage to take advantage of this
supreme privilege. He was arrested and is now in prison with Madame Limouzin. The case will be
a formidable washing of dirty linen
in the facts and personages involved. Even the son-in-law of President Grevy, M. Daniel Wilson is
involved in many of Madame Li-
uiouziii's tried tripotages. With
such ti case as this before us shall
we say that corruption in the Republic is less interesting than the
depravity of the Empire!

MSI SIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
Viotokia, Oct. 19.—A report conies
from Nanaimo that a few days ago tlio
polico recoived information from an
Indian womnn that a sailor was foully
murdered about three years ago at an
Indian camp on the Newcastle reserve
It appears the sailor went into the
camp, got into a drunken row.with the
Indians, and in a fight which'ensued
was murdered. Superintendent Roycraft has been enquiring into tbe matter. Yesterday the woman who made
the statement, accompanied by the
authorities, prucceded to tho spot
where tho suppoccd body had been
been buried. The party found that the
ground had apparently been trenched
about eight feet long and ten feet deep.
The most diligent search, however,
failed to discloso ony signs of a human
being having boen buried thero. The
woman was curtain it was the spot
where Die had seen the body in an ad
ranced stage of decomposition. A
further search will be made. The str.
Ancon is several days overdue from
Alaska.
BIOT IN LONDON.
London, Oot. 19.—The mob whioh
gathered in Hyde Park to-day sallied
forth into the streets and, followed by
the police, paraded the west end.
When it readied Berkeley square the
police charged upon them and scattered
them temporarily, but, torming again,
they marched on. At Piccadilly thore
was nnothor collision between the mob
nnd tho police, and a sharp fight ensued. Several of tho crowd were in*
jureil nnd many arrests made. Many
shops in the disturbed district were
closed to day through fear ol the
rioters.

Thero wero 200 cases yesterday, and
new crises are reported every few

A beadiifol peediction.
New Youk, Oct. 19.—Tho 31st annual general convention of the Universal Ohuroh began hero to-day.
Secretary J. L, Demarest, D. D., reported that there aro 916 Universalis!
parishes in the United States and
Oanada, with a membership of 36,297,
and property valued at (7,226,569, less
the debt thereon. The committee on
profession of faith reported an amended profession. It declares the necessity of personal degeneration, but predicts tho Dual holiness and happiness
of all mankind.
TIIE U. S. CABINET  SPLIT.
Washington, Oot. 19.—The Star
this afternoon says: "Thero is another report current of a disagreement
in tho cabinet that may lead to one or
iiiinc resignations. The trouble it is
stated is botwoeu Attorney-general
Giivltind tinil Secretary Baynrd, and
hus grown out uf tho question as to
whether tho seal fishery seizures of
Canadian vessels in Alaskan watera
which havo beau made by tiro Trensury
doparttiiout were according to laws on
tho statue book. Mr. Bayard, us is
known; holds that the claim to jurisdiction over Alaskan waters beyond
threo mile limit is not tenable. When
the cane eamo up beforo the United
States court at Sitka, it became the
duty of tho Attornoy-Goneral through
his oHIcinls to soo to tho enforcement
of tho lnw as he found it, and thus to
defend the action of the Treasmy Department, lt is stated that the briefs
in tho cases prepared by the department ni'giio strongly to got rid of the
question proposed by Bayard, and
thereby pluco hiin ill an awkward position in disputing tho claim of Canada
to juvisdictron beyonrl Iho throe inilo
limit iu Cnuiulinn waters. Bayard will
lay tho matter before tho President on
his re'urn, and will resign if he is not
sustained in the position.

Lincoln, Neb., Oct. 20.—Two Bur- ;
lington & Missouri freight trains collided near the village of Woodlawn,
four miles north of here about 3 o'clock
this morning. The engine and a
dozen cars Jwere cump'.itely wreoked;
tho wreck immediately took fire. Isaac
Davenport, a brakeman on one of the
trains, got his right foot caught between tho engine tender and iron bar.
The Haines were drawing near to him
and the only way lo release hits waa
to chop hla foot loose with an axe.
His right knee was crushed to that it
wus necessary to amputate the leg .
nbnve that joint. He is dying. Thu .
wreck was'caused by carelessness of
the conductor on Ihe north bound
train who pulled out without noticing
that the other train had not regiatared.
Ho has disappeared.

THIS AFTERKOOK'S DISPATCHES.
OULKSLY TALKS SENH.
Chicaoo, Oct. 20.—Governor Ogles-
ly delivered an address of weloome
before the convention of locomotive
engineers tfhich met here yeaterday,
and created a profound sensation by
making what is generally believed to
be pointed references to tho cases of
the anarchists now awaiting the action
of tho supreme oourt "There have
been cases in this fair land," laid he,
"when hungry men with hungry wives
and children at home havo listened to
flashy sentences of men who thought
they could interpose themselves between laboring people and the steady
march of law, order and justice. Deeds
of violence followed and all too Lata
they found they were not potent
enough to make a change of affairs.
Appeals to the justice of the people
will always in the ond result in jus-
tic, but violence and outrage of laws
and justice will meet with inevitable
puhishment." The governor's untsji-
takable words have caused much oom-
meut, and the opinion is now freely
expressed that the condemned anarchists stand littlo chance of pardon 6f
even of commutation of sentence.
' writ op error'.
New Yobk, Oet 20.—General Roger

CHAMBERLAIN'S   ANTI-IRISH   STEECHIS.
London, Oct. 20.—I have reason to
believe, writes Ihe London correspondent of the Leeds Mercury, thlt the American govornment has conveyed the
intimation to Lord Salisbury thlt the
bitterness of Chamberlain's anti-Irish
speeches will not facilitate the settlement of the Gsherios question. President Cleveland and hia colleagues ire
afraid that Chamberlain may be met
by hostile demonstrations in tbe United
States, and if any such incident occurred it would not. only be awkward
for tho English commissioners, but
would tend to prejudice any agreement
that might be arrived at If Chamberlain and the American government
come to an agreement there is considerable risk that the senate under the
influence of tho Irish vote may be induced to veto it No treaty with the
United States is valid unless formally
approved of by tlio senate, md the
American govornment ia afraid that
Chamberlain's language wiU materially

Very Much Mistaken.
The Ottawa /Veo Press publishes
in interview with Hon. Jno. Robson
at Ottawa wherein it makes him say
on tho question of disallowance: "I
think the peoplo aro convinced that
it is to their interest ami that of
the whole country to protect tho
great national highway from undue
competition, which the tapping of
it in the very heart of the country
might involve, We are satisfied to
forego our wish for railway connection between New Westminster and
the boundary, though it would be a
benefit to us." The most probable
explanation of this is that the provincial secretary has been misreport-
ed. If not, we must say that he
has wholly misrepresented the feelings of his constituents with respect
to the Southern Railway. Wo think
it may safely be said that nine-
tenths of the people of Westminster
district at least would not bo satisfied to forego the construction of
the railway to the boundary. If
the building of the boundary road
would have the effect of killing the
0. P. R., of course everybody would
be perfectly willing to abandon it.
If that is what the provincial secretary meant, he is quite within the
truth; but either he did not make
his meaning clear, or the reporter
did not make a correct report.
There is no conflict of interest between the Westminster Southern
and the 0. P. R., and to say that
we are willing to abandon it for that
reason is to talk nonsense.
Surrendering Boodlers.
Several newspapers both in the
United States and Canada, have
hinted that the American government would probably ask for the
surrender of McGarigle, the Chicago boodler (if he is ever found),
and the hope was expressed that the
Canadian authorities would give
him up. A recent despatch from
Washington says that the state
department his never received any
application from Illinois for the
extradition of the boodler. It further states that if such an application were received, based upon the
determination that McGarigle shall
be extradited on the ground of
comity, as is alleged, there can not
he muoh doubt as to the action of
the state department. It has very
rarely happened that the United
States has asked or accepted the
extradition of any criminal on the
ground of comity. "Once only
under this administration," says the
despatch, "has a criminal been
extradited by Miy foreign government on the ground of comity at
the request of the United States.
In that case the circumstances were
peculiar. Early in the administration Japan surrendered a fugitive
from juBtice to the United States
for a cause not covered by any thon
existing treaty. But a treaty was
then pending between the United
States and Japan, which the latter
government muoh wished to have
ratified, and doubtless was an aid to
secure the ratification of that treaty
by the senate of the United States,
so the Japanese government surrendered the fugitive, But the
United States government at the
same time gave the authorities of
Japan to understand that if the
then pending treaty should fail, the
United States would not be able to
reciprocate if at any time Japan
should ask for the extradition of
any person on the ground of comity.
There was one noted cose of the
surrender to the United States of a
fugitive from justice of comity.
This was the surrender of Tweed by
Spain. 'But,' Assistant Secretary
Porter, who is familiar with the
law and a sage of the department,
said, 'the United States even then
informed Spain that in accepting the
return of Tweed it was not to be
understood that the United States,
in the absence of treaty stipulations,
would agree to return a Spanish
fugitive as an aot of comity.' But
Tweed was such a notorious criminal that no country wanted him.
He ilia regarded an a political leper,
and Spain was pleased to be able to
exercise ita arbitrary power to surrender him. The power which the
Spanish government exercised in
lurrtndering Tweed, in the absence
of a treaty, is a power which the
United States does not possess. In
Spain, the question was simply the
will of the orown and a file of soldier*. In thii country there are
the courts of state' and of the
United States, and in both there is
die writ of habeas corpus if the
■tate deportment should attempt to
surrender him on the ground of
comity and in the absence of treaty
right*, And the same law as to
habeas corpus exists in Canada.
The oourti there would act as the
courts here would if McGarigle
•hoold apply to them to he relieved
(mn an attempted extradition,
which was not within the scope of
the treaty. Suoh a proceeding could
only be postible then in the form of
practical kidnapping, which might
be eflboted before the court would
haw had an opportunity to act,
and that would not be countenanced
by either government. The exception! ktt to tew that the action of
our govenment may be aaid to be
uniform in refowig to extradite
persons as an act of comity or to
ask that persons be extradited on
that ground." A number of decisions are then quoted showing the
opinion of thoso whoso opinions aro
worth liriviugiu the United States, all
agreeing that it would bo unwise
and unsafe to depart from tho ordinary practice In view of those
faots it is probable that McGarigle
will bo safe enough from surrender
—which is a great pity.
Perfeot Hair

through which nourishment is obtained.
Whon, in consequence of age and dis*
ease, the hair becomes weak, thin, and
gray, Ayer's Hair Vigor will strengthen
it, restore its original color, promote its
.rapid and vigorous growth, and impart
to it the lustre and freshness of youth.
I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for a
long time, and am convinced of its
value. When I was 17 years of ago my
hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using tho Vigor, and was surprised at
the good effects it produced. It not
only restored tho color to my hair, but
so stimulated its growth, that I have
now more hair than ovor before.—

Ju..r Srenes In the Burial of the Old ami
Young.
Twill dcmrrilre two funerals, says a
•niT s|nvnli>iit ol the London Referee,
li.it I iv.tinriro.l ill one ddv at tlio grout
Mini i'/ . I Si villo. T'our littlo baro-
iiiijt.'d irij.-s arrive nt the cemetery gates.
Iliitworn tniriii thoy carry a littlo bluo ■
mil white iro I'm. They Jog along, clint-
ring and luu ling, up the long avenue ol
Irees. Presently tney Bee something
which attracts their attention—a bird iu
a tree.. .Down thoy drop the coffin by
ihe roadside, and ofrthey scamper across
lire grass to the treri. They pick up
slant! and begin to throw at thu bird, in
I lu process thoy quarrel about something, and two of the hoys have a light.
In the meantime the coilin lies in the
roadway. I wall,- up to It, and through
the glass set Into t e lid 1 see tho dead
child's face. It hnd Inren dead per rips
1- hours, so tho fea.ur s are unirh-uigi-d,
and it nppeare to In calmly sleeping.
Several people prtmi me; no one takes any
notice of the coffin o r tii■■ road. Ono ol I
lirntlcinan nearly ttinWlfi over it mil
swears.   It is evidently ll thing unusual.
Presently thcar ra.c;• I boya havo arranged thoir littl-' diiierorices, return nnd
iiick up the coffin. Two of tliom havo
lighted cigarettes. Tin y carry their burden right across tlie cemetery to a littlo
house, where.two or threo men with
brass numbers on their caps ar r smoking
cigarettes. H "re they Bhow u pnjier, and
one ol the men, : hiking up u sbarlo, tells
the boys to fallow him. Off they go,
jogging the uolfin now this way now that,
and I follow them.
We come to a lonrr lino ol brick vaults.
Fome are empty; some are filled up to
the top With whnt I prosruno to be mold.
The grave d'lrgrr turns over the loose
earth with his spade, nnd strikes a coffin
here and ther ■. It is top lull. He moves
on to another 'ricked s'juaro, pushes his
spade ln, nud says thore is just room.
He digs a little hole an I lavs tho coffin
flush with llie top ol tho brick work.
Then he throw t a few spadefuls of enrth
from a mound r-lo.ie by. an 1 111 j ceremony
is over. Tlierir nre 'th'iiRin Is ol tlrese
bricked aqtirmtr in the eeiuetery and eaeh
contains a silir-l 'if i-alHui. There is no
stone over tit - r rp, only the loose brown
earth. Som.' in' llie n Ore so full that the
earth has tn Ire piled up to cover the
coffin and Hum tho coffin is actually
above groin I.
The next mncral arrived as I was leaving the ccrui'Hy. A car, driven by a
man smokin: u cigarette, came up. It
was follow.' I hy a cab, from which
alighted un old gontlomnn, also smoking
a cigarette. Tli • ear pulled up nt the
gate of the "dtijiository,' il little house in
the grounds tii'i-amrct for the reception of
Ihe people wh » hnvo died too late to be
hurled that dni'* H'he iinardian of the
house, eignrette in mouth, flings open the
■loots, speak, to 111 i ii 'nlluman, and then
calls so ue one to .-o 'in. A. man with a
cigarette in h h tnoutli now approaches,
lie ami the car-'.river IHt out the coffin
nnd carry it innr trie house and lay it on
the trestles. They then light a candle at
the head and foot, and come out and
shut tho door.
Ou drives tho car, the man lighting
another cigarette) nnd the gentleman to
whom the corps: -belongs strolls across
tlie cemetery with tbe grave-digger to
choose "his place."   Tho gravr „,__
turns up a little earth in one brick square
and then iu another. "Too full," says
. (.entlemnn, pulling Ids cigarette. He
en's fro 11 srpinre to mjniire and jukes at
the Ioosj cutis with his cane. At last ho
settles on a square which is only half
furl. "Thnt will do." he says, and then
he returns to his cab nud drives away.
Peter the Great of Basshs.
The Imperial Historical Society ol Russia lias recently published a volume containing the correspondence oi M. de
Campredon, Envoy ol France to St. Petersburg from 1722 to 1724. The immo-
dinte object of his mission was to conclude an alliance between the Due de
Chartres, son ot the Regent Orleans, with
the Grand Duchess Elisabeth, the Czar's
youngest daughter. He was not successful in this project,, but his observations
on Russian lite at that period are full oi
interest. Of the Ctar Peter he says:
"It is true to say ol this great prince that
ho has accomplished prodigies, and ii
Hi .'interior of llio greater number ol his
sa'iject has not changed, there ha* at
lcn.it been such a metamorphosis on the
surface that those who knew Russia
thirty years ago, and who see what goes,
on there to-day, would be constrained to
allow tbat it required a monarch as
courageous as he was enlightened and
laborious to produce so happy and ao
general a revolution. In fact, his attention to the task ol making his people
amenable to order, to render them useful
to the State, and to carry bis glory to the
highest point it could reach, was infinite;
nor did it require' less perseverance to
draw his nobility from the indifference
unworthy ol men in which they wen
sunk, and to render them fit to serve in
hiB armler on land and see, for which
they had untiljqulte recently an insuperable objection. The knowledge which
the Ctar acquired in tbe foreign countries
through which he travelled was turned
to excellent account by his genius, sustained by the solid reflections ol ft concise and penetrattna judgment, by a prodigious memory, bv a courage which
made him respected and obeyed without
Hie Isriatrmugnance. and by a consummate prudence in the execution of all
the great projects which he had formed
for the welfare of his States after having
rxtenJed thuir frontiers till he had re»-
ilererltbeih the largest realm in Europe
lind himself the most powerful prinoe Of
tho North. Wh»t is still more extraor-
dinary is thnt he owed his great intelll-
g.nco solely to his own labors; none
of his relations who wished to deprive
him of the throne troubled about his
education. In this manner has Russia,
scarcely known by name beforo his time,
become to-day the object ofthe attention
of the greater number of the Powers of
Europe, who nek her friendship either
because they tear te see her ongogedin
an opposite snap, or ior the advantage
hey hope to gain irom her alliance." '

What Sew York Lose, by tho s.ilnnlny
Half-Holiday.
"The Saturday half holiday has begun
to make on impression upon the banking
business of this city that is portentous of
evil. New York is conceded by everybody to be the financial centre of tho
country- and hltliei'lo the linns lias hern
nono too long for tlio riecomj'tiBhiiient uf
our work. Now wo are handicapped by
tho sudden taking awny of 2li' wholo
working dnys out of tlie year. Adding to
these tlio eight whole holidays previously
existing, and tho business of New York,
the foremost business eity in tlio Uni jii,
is deprived of Ul actual working days,
whereas most of the other cities of the
Union have but six holidays. In otlur
words, the immense business of tho citv
of New York, with its ramifications into
every city, town, and hamlet iu the
Union, must be transacted in 270 wonting days per annum, agriinrrt 3*)7 days 1j-
votod to work by every other city. Trie
consequence is that the expenso of do ng
our business is largely increased. Friday
becomes substantially the last day of the
week, lor littlo or nothing can be done on
Saturday, and Monday begins with an
accumulation of work and correspondence
almost overwhelming.
"But our most serious troubles growing
out of the Saturday hall-holiday are the
losses of accounts. Our California ami
Western accounts require the oxoh tiigo
ol hundreds of millions of dollars annually, and several of theso hiiv r br'on
driven to Chicago and other cilies hy onr
inability to do business with then nn
Saturday. It is folly to suppose thru the
channels of business of the whole eorur.iv
are going to cease their How because New
York banks are unable to wait upon
them. They will avoid the Now York
banks, and in their train all the other
business institution of the city, and go
where they can be accommodated at ail
reasonable times."—A Prominent Banker
in New York Times.
Trickery tn Fancy Soaps.
"Experience is necessary in the purchase ol fancy soaps," remarked a dealer
the other day. "You aro not always sure
that you are getting tho worth of your
money. Agood toilet article should not
contain moro than from I) to IU per cent.
of water. Tho unscrupulous manufacturer increases the amount of water iu
various ways. In some instances lie
force's water into tho soap as it liarleni
after the boiling it undergoes; in nlhtrr
enses he mixed the water by mechanical
means into tho soap; iu a third an I
equally large class of cases ho introduces
some powerful chemical, such us Glauber's salts, which enables him to introduce as much as 70 percent, of wilier,
lt ie obvious, therefore, that ten ponn Is
of honest toilet soap would contain nine
pounds if thoroughly dried, ami thnt ten
poumis treated chemically would contain
less than threo pounds.
Nor is the wrong confined to selling
threo pounds lor nine to the innocent
purchaser. The spurious soap is nlt'eeted
by water five times as much as the genuine. In the wash bowl or bath tub it
dissolves visibly beforo the oye. Where
ita honestly mado rival can be used lii'ty
times, it only lasts ten. If left by accident in the water, it disolves until tlie
surrounding liquid is thick suds. Thero
are soaps of this sort in tho market w Inch
are advertised as first class and sold at
high prices. Have an eye on the man
who calls on you and pretends to give
you bargains by letting ou it is last of the
lot, and tempts you with a quick fulling
scale of prices. The perfume is there
and the snowy wrapper, but it's 110 jier
cent, water, instead of honest soap."

Antiquity of Ropes.
Before the beginning ol the historical
period, considerable skill in rojia-niaking
bad been acquired bo that ft must be
classed %mong the oldest of the arts.
The existing relics of the ancient Egypt-
lansinclude sculptures showing the process of manufacture practiced more than
4,000 years ago, while the oldest records
of thnt people represent well-made ropi'B
Of great strength. Flax and the fibres of
tho date tree wore employed for those
ropes, but grasses and the hides ol animals wore probably among, tho first
materials used.
In.llnct. ot tke Ktagfl.her.
That kingfishers possess k remarkable
instinct to avoid those fish proving harmful to them is exemplified by tho following incident. A correspondent slates
that being Infested with these birds ho
set traps for them In two ot his ponds,
one containing minnows and tho oilier
perch. A capture was ell'ected daily
where tho minnows were located, but on
no occasion was a kingfisher caught near
the perch pond, Tho latter fish are injurious to birds.
Scroful:
la one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited,
but may be the result of improper vaccination, mercurial poison, imcli-anliiicHK,
and various other causes. Chronic Sores,
Ulcers, Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
aud,in sunn- coses, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of tho blood. This disease can be
cured by tho uso of Ayer's SarsapariUa.

run nn extra trip each week to this

A Big Strike.
It is reported in minim; circles in
the city that an exceedingly rich discovery in gold quartz has been mado
at the head uf Seaton Lake, LUlooet.
Full particulars of the discovery arc
kept quiet by interested unities.
Sufficient has leaked out however, to
indicate that the find is one of the
richest yet struck anywhere. Shafts
have been sunk nnd a couple of samples
brought out, ono of which weighs 200
lbs. aud tho other 300 lbs. These nro
especially rich in free gold, the precious ore being readily distinguishable
by the naked eye. The discoverers
claim that in a very few feet of rock
there is untold wealth. Millions aro
already talked about as having been
offered and declined for the proporty.
It is to be hoped the strike is as rich
u it is claimed to be and that many
millions will be extracted therefrom.
A Mr. Bell is said to be tho chiefly interested party.—rimes.

The Schooner Htiulrlftr.
Capt. Grant who has rcceutly purchased the Canadian cruiser Houlette,
for seal fishing in the Paoifio waters,
is fitting out for fighting if necessary.
She will bo fully armed and hor crew
are composed of a lot of dare-devils,
among whom is Duncan McDonald
who made a record for himself as a
fighter during the last Soudan Campaign. Capt. Grant is well-known in
British Columbia as the owner of the
tea ship Georgo which has made a
number of very fast passages between
Hong Kong and Burrard Inlet, Oapt.
Grant was commander of the clipper
ship Louisa Hatch when she was captured and burnt by the Alabama, and
he and her crew were left on an is-
land near the Equator. Ho boasts
that he will teach the Yankees a les-
sion and says the seizures in Alaskan
waters are only n retaliation for the
Nova Scotia seizures. He says that
the Canadian sailors taken prisoners
in tho Pacific were brutally treated.
15 lard Dash.
Considerable excitement was manifested round town last night when it
became known that a 75 yard dash was
to be run between Allan Lewis of this
eity and a young fellow named Elliot
of the Puck Opera Co. The dash was
for a purse of §50, each man backing
himself to tho extent of {25. The
race was to tako place on Front streot
at 5:30 o'clock and soon people began
io    wand    .linin    .....j. i. tl...* cli.oa.lan
and when the hour arrived several
hundred spectator were on the ground.
Little or no betting was indulged in
as it seemed that nobody knew the
qualities of either men. When the
men stripped for tho raco buth were
seen to bo in good condition, though
Elliot was evidently in the best form.
The start was made by a pistol shot
and aa the report rung out, Lewis
dashed away and crossed the line alone,
Elliot not having made a start. Hnd
Lewis wished he could hnve claimed
the race, as the manner of starting had
been thoroughly understood beforehand, but he pluckily determined to
deoide the race man to man. Both
men got away together nt the next
pistol shot and tho race wns a beautiful one for the first 50 yards, both
men running abreast of encli other, and
for all they were worth. After the 50
yards were passed Elliot commenced to
draw away from Lewis and finally
crossed the line about threo feet abend.
Owing to the darkness the time could
not be taken accurately, but it must
have been fast.

Seeing Ihe Sights.
This morning ut half-past eight
o'clock the str. Adelaide with n large
party of gentlemen aboard left for
Ladners.     The   excursionists   were
Srincipally from Manitoba and the
[orthwest and went as the guests of a
number of private citizens who wore
desirous of showing tho visitors as
much as possible of the fruit growing
and farming lauds of the Fraser.
Among tho residents of this eity who
took part in the trip were Mayor
Dickinson, Joseph Armstrong, S. H.
Webb, Coun. Elliot, Ool. McGregor,
B. Douglas snd others. The first stop
wu made at Ewen's cannery, and
after thoroughly inspecting it tho
steamer to proceeded to Ladners
where vegetables, root crops, grain and
fruits were exhibited. The steamer returned at 1 o'clock this afternoon, and then proceeded to the salmon hatchery, where the process was
explained to the visitors. All the
visitors express themselves as more
then delighted with what they have
aeen and many of them carry away
large potatoes, turnips and cabbages
ss a sample of what can be grown in
the country. Although the dull
weather and occasional showers took
away some of the comfort of the trip
still the visitors were bo much interested in whst they saw that they did
not mind Ihe discomfort. Among tho
Nor'-Westers on the steamer we recognized Councillors J. Maw, M. Dunn
snd A. E. Slieltnn, of Calgary, and

I. O. <!. T. Mass Heeling.
The I. O. G. T. held a temperance
mass meeting last night in the Baptist
Church, at which all the members of
the Grand Lodge were present. The
proceedings were opened with singing
and prayers.
The Rev. R. B. Hemlaw first addressed the meeting. He said he was
delighted to meet and nddress an audience in Westminster in the interests
of temperance reform. Onco before
ho had spoken in Westminster nn this
question, and seme would remember
that was on the occasion of the Scott
Act convention held in this city nearly
3 years since, and which he had the
honor of convening. He had nover
been satisfied with tho decision come
to at that convention. He reviewed
the progress of the temperance movement in this district since then, and
concluded that, although a good work
wusgoingon,yet in so far as curtailment
of the liquor traffic was concerned, progress was nil.    (Applause.)
Ti.» t>..a y. jl. w„ua- .... «a-
dressed the meeting in an enthusiastic
address, denouncing the liquor traffic
and all connected with the trado. He
compared the liquor traffic of British
Columbia to a rattlesnake that was
always seeking to do all the harm it
possibly could; but tho time had come
when alcoholic rattlesnakes would have
to be completely annihilated, eo that
the people of British Columbia would
be freed from the curse which had so
long been an obstruction to the progress of tho province.   (Applause.)-
Rev. W. J. Dowler was introduced
and, after opening the remarks hy an
amusing anecdote, congratulated the
city upon the improvements that had
taken place in its appearance within
the past year, in the shape of buildings,
streets, and sidewalks, and trusted
that this was indicative of a corresponding inerease in temperance sentiment and advance in temperance work.
He cited tho miu and death, wrought
by drink, that had taken place here,
and defined tho ground of the whiskey power to be the force of custom.
The speaker concluded by alluding
pathetically to tho shadows cast on the
temperanco cause by the death of the
late Hon. J. B. Finch, and urged
upon nil to omulate his zeal and noble
self-devotion until the lut pillar of
the liquor power shall be undermined
and swept'away.
The meeting then adjourned.
Mr. lt. A. Harrison, Chemist and
Druggist, Dunnvillc, Ont,, writes: "I

Tliis settlement hu been favored
with a visit from Miu Bowes, of Ontario, who for nearly a year, past has
been doing efficient work in the temperance causo as opportunity afforded. On
Saturday evening, she spoke to a fair
audience, in the Town Hall, on Sunday
afternoon she spoke again in the Presbyterian church. Buth addresses were
most earnes and impressive, and can
not fail to strengthen temperanco sentiment in the community. On Monday
she met the ladies at the Town Hall
and succeeded in organizing a W. 0.
T. M. with 13 memben, whioh promises to do goad work in the temperance fieild. The following officers were
appointed, besides committees for the
several departments of work: Mrs.
J. W. Sexsmith, President; Mrs. F.
McCleory, Mrs. Rov. Cormick, and
Mrs. J. C. Vermulyca.fVico-Presidonts;
Miss Harding, Cor. Sec, Mrs, L.

are dispersed by this salutary corrective
tonic and celebrated blood purifier.
