Friday Evening, Au»o»t 13, MM.
J It is nothing less than absurd
i'thut the Dominion does not yet
(possess the power of negotiating
^treaties with other nations when
and where Bhe will, and entirely
upon her own responsibility. In
this respeot we are in the same condition of subserviency commercially
is we' were politically in the days
Iprior to responsible government.
Downing street remains practically
our master in commercial matters,
jis it was our political dictator in
the days before Lord Sydenham and
Sir Charles Bagot. What Baldwin,
Lafontoin, Mackenzie and the rest
'accomplished for responsible government, has yet to be effected in
,the cause of commercial indepen-
•dence.—Manitoba Free Press.
| Rev. Mr. Ohiniquy says that he
'notices in Illinois that the Ftench
^children who learn botH French and
English from infancy, always use
.English in conversing with one an-
1 other or for ordinary purposes. The
'same thing may be noticed all along
the frontier between Quebec and
"Ontario, where French Canadians
niay often be heard speaking broken
"English to each other. Mr. Cliini-
;quy accounts for it by the greater
'directness of Engliah.   A curious
fact is that, though he spoke nothing
'but French in youth, and though
(his spoken English has a strong
'French accent, he thinks and writes
r,his books in English, then trans-
dates them into French; though be
'finds expression easier in English,
lhe finds translation of English to
i< French much easier than therc-
iverse. From all this the inference
;is possible that the English language will overcoino the French in
"Canada in spite of the. singularly
'rapid increase of the latter race.
-Globe.
The advent of « team from the
'Pacific province this season to compete at the D. R. A matches, is a
.matter for congratulation and.pride
i to themselves as well as to tbe association. . It marks a new stage in
the  militia   organization   of   our
country, and   may  be taken as a
sign of deep significance in tbe his-
jtory of Canada.   At Ottawa, representatives of all tbe provinces will
'.meet as on, common ground to test
their skill as marksmen—eaoh viewing  with  the other to uphold the
(credit of his province.    Such meetings cannot do otherwise thanen-
jgender a kindly feeling between the
ivarious sections of the Dominion as
'Well as between individuals, and in
'this  way   keep up and strengthen
the territorial and political links by
'i which we are united together by
''means   of  that  far  stronger and
more lasting bond of union—common hopes and aspirations, good-
'fellowship, a firm and honest be-
' lief in the bright prospects of our
young country, and a determination
') to  uphold   its   honor and dignity
*' when opportunity offers, a practical
training for which is presented each
H year at .the D. R. A.~Canadiun
{} Militia Gazette, July 29.
The government of the United
| States will do well to closely watch
i the action of the French govern
*' ment in respect of the Panama
' Canal. An effort is being made to
i secure the sanction of tho French
'government for the issue of bonds
t to the amount of six hundred inil-
i lion francs; and a writer in L'Etsono-
\ mist Franeaise, after declaring that
Ivit cannot seriously be oxpected that
fit the work can be finished with the
V amount named, hints at the possi-
j'-jbility of tlu -fork.ceasing to bo a
\j private enterprise, and becoming a
*' national one. This is the French
_ method of colonization and annex-'
i ation. When once a few Frenoh
u obtain a foothold in a place, twice
"j as many soldiers are. one day landed
I to punish some imaginary insult;
b the flag is hoisted; and, as it is usu-
'i ally a matter of protracted negotia-
ti tion to' satisfy or get rid of the un-
' conscionable demands of the French
.'• government, there the 'flag flies, un-
] less it is torn down by « stranger
J power. This is thc method by
] whioh France has acquired a niiiii-
I her of islands or archipelagoes in
I Polynesia, .and her latest move in
ijjthnt direction was at the New
I Hebrides. She, is not likely, it is
Ii true, to attempt precisely the same
'*. thing on the American continent—
I the memory of Mexico is too fresh
J with her; but watchfulness is ad-
{visable.—TluWeek
The handsomest yonian in Italy is
| said to be nearly seven feot tall. Sho
' probably seems handsome to mortals

We hope ,Siv John will tako no
tice to the splendid proportions of
Fraser River and its natural usefulness as a commercial avenue. In
point of importance it is second
only to oue river ill Cnnaila, and
yet for the sake of saving the paltry
sum of §.10,000 necessary to deepen
and permanently protect the entrance through the sandheads, this
magnificent river can be entered by
ocean ships of deep draught only at
high tide!
The uncertainty that has attended the movements of Sir John A.
*Macdonald and his party in this
province will to some extent interfere with the success of the reception. It is impossible, too, to conceal the fact that there is much
disappointment felt at the shortness
of the stay of those distinguished
visitors in this city. When it became known thot they would remain
only part of ono day, the enthusiasm
of the people underwent a process
of perceptible cooling. Wc hope,
however, that the visit may be a
pleasant one to all parties.
The Scimtijic American observes
that while the projects of building
a ship canal across the Isthmus of
Panama and Nicaragua seem to
have failed to secure, public confidence, the Eads ship railway has a
great many warm advocates and enthusiastic supporters. Tlie cost of
the canals represents such an enormous sum, and the risks are so
many and so serious, that capital
fights shy of tlie venture, tt is
stated that 8120,000,000 has already been spent on the DeLesseps
canal, and many prominent engineers declare that it is not half finished. The cost of the railway can
be ascertained with comparative
.exactness, whereas the estimates for
the canals havo been proved unreliable.
Home Rule.
Among our despatches published
to-day will bo found one purporting
to give a summary of the chief
points in the new homo rule scheme
that is said to be in course of preparation by the Tory party. This
scheme is in some respects much
more comprehensive than the one
formulated by Mr. Gladstone. It
proposes home rule not only for
Ireland, but for Scotland and England as well. This phase of the
scheme commends it to our judg
inent, for it must have become apparent long ago that if the right of
managing its local uflairs was conceded to Ireland, the same concession must be mode to England and
Scotland. The plan is the one that
was adopted iu the organization of
the Oannilinn confederation, und in
the United States, nnd it has always occurred to us as the one that
must eventually be applied to the
solution of the questions that have
been so long threatening the peace
of the empire. There may be
other aspects, however, in which
th.e new measure will not meet the
circumstances. Not only must provision lie made for tho future government of Ireland in a way that
will secure the establishment and
maintenance of law and order, but
existing grievances must be redressed. So long as the lands remain in the hands of absentee landlords, who in many cases study to
put into their own pockets the
whole earnings of their tenants,
there can be neither contentment
nor prosperity among the peasantry
of Ireland. Ono of the most serious questions, therefore, that confronts the IriBh reformer is how to
remedy the evils arising out of the
land system. Mr. Gladstone's bill
proposed to deal with that phase of
the question, but wc do not know
whether Lord Churchill's does or
not. It is reassuring to know, nt
all events, that the new govornment
recognizes the necessity of a radical
change in the administration of
Irish affairs. Indeed—thanks, to
the bold attitude of Mr. Gladstone
—no British government that did
not embrace in its policy a proposal
for the relief of Ireland could hopo
to exist for any length of time. It
doesn't matter much whether tlie
emancipation of Ireland is effected
by Gladstone or Churchill, so long
as the object is accomplished without loss to imperial interests.
Two littlo boys, Tommic and Frankie, who had beon tho bot of friends,
quarreled and threw "bines at each
other. - Toinmio's mother took him to
task, and asked hiin if ho didn't wnnt
to be a good mnn? "Yes," ho answered, "as good as Christ" "But Ho
taught us to lovo overybody—ovon our
enemies." Then Tommio's nistor, a
few yean older, interposed; "But tho
Bible says says,  'An pye for an eye,
and a tooth for a tooth. That was
the old law," the mother oxplaincd,
"and It was done away." "Well,"
H»id Tomniio, after a few minutes of
reflection, "Prankle nnd I go in for
the old law." _  ' _^_^

THE MOTHER FIMDS HEft IN THI8 OITY.
Yesterday morning a woman camo
to Vancouver on the str. Princess
Louise, nnd took the stage there for
this city. Mr. Wm. Rae, merchant of
tliis city, came by the same conveyance, and in conversation discovered
the woman's mission to be a very sad
and peculiar one. In answer to his
enquiry as to her purpose she burst
into tears nnd handed him n lotter f roiii
tho district attorney's office, dnted
Seattle tho Otll inst., as follows: "To
whom it may concern: The bearer of
this letter, Mrs. Elizabeth Pratley, is
just now in great trouble and distress.
A cruol-hearted wretch (unfortunately
hor husband, against whom our criminal courts have beon compelled to issue
process and put him under bonds to
prevent him carrying out his threats to
kill her), stole into the bedchamber nf
lior sleeping children and stole away
her little girl ngod 10 yoars and enrried
the ohild away to Now Westminster
for no purposo, 1 verily bolieve, but
to harass and torture tho mother. I
hope that the British authorities at
•Now Westminster, or elsewhoro that
the monster with his smooth tonguo
may bo found, will extend to this lady
every assistance towards recovering
her child. Sho is well known here,
and I recommend her as a true and
deserving and truthful lady. She and
her family circumstances nro nil well
known at tliis office and to our officers
here, and any assistance afforded her
-by our English brothers in her endeavors to recover her little girl will
be remembered by ub and cause us to
reciprocate such* favors when opjwrtu-
nity oilers. Very respectfully, J. T.
Ronald, Dist. Atty." Mr. Rao's sympathies were at once enlisted for the
woman. On nrrival here he took her
to his house, and sent for Officer
Moresby to whom the particulars wore
mnde known, Mr. Moresby at onoe
set about finding tho missing child,
which he succeeding in doing very
promptly. She was found nt the residence of Mr. Newman, wliere she had
been left by tho father. The child
was given to lior mother who loft in
tho afternoon for Vnncouver on her
way back to Soattlo. The mother wns
overjoyed upon regaining possession of
her child, and with tears of gratitude
streaming down her cheeks she thanked Mr. Rae aud Mr. Moresby for their

followed hor to Mr, Rae's Btore, and
told her ho would get oven with her

Mrs. Youmans at Chilliwhack.
(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
As Chilliwhack ranks chief among
the municipalities of the province for
its refusal hitherto to legalize the sale
of liquor, it might have been expected
that Mra. Youmans' visit, as president
of the W. C. T. U, of Canada, would
be regarded among us us an event of
no ordinary importance. Well, Mrs.
Y. has come and gone, and it is safe to
Bay thut all expectations raised have
been more than realized. No visitor
to Chilliwhack has uver secured such
public attention, no platform or pulpit
orator visiting us, has been favored
with suoh large aud enthusiastic audiences aa those who have listened to
Mrs. Youmans. Aud what makes it
the moro remarkable is, the busy sea-
sou of the year, when it ib so diflicult
iu an agricultural section to secure uu
audienco. But contrnry to all former
experience, although alts. Y.'s visit
seemed inopportune aa to time, yet it
has turned out an unqualified success,
and will materially aid, both in numbers and influence, the growing fortunes and onward march of temperance
effort.
Mrs. Y.'s first meeting was at tho
camp ground on Sunday last at 11 a.
in,, when she addressed the Band of
Hope, although a large crowd of adults
were present. At 2 p. in, she addressee! the Indians, through Rev. C.
M. Tate, who interpreted. Immediately after she gave her celebrated
lecture on " Hainan's License" to a
vast crowd gathered from all parts of
the valley, tho religious exercises being conducted by Rev. C, Bryant.
On Monday afternoon Mra. Y. held
a meeting at the Centrovillo Methodist
church for 1-idiei, and again in thu
evening met a largo audience and
spoke at n public installation of oflicers of I. O. G. T. at Henderson hall.
But her closing lecturo, uu " Building
tho Wall," at the aame placo on Tuea-
dap night, secured the greatest crowd
of listeners. Cliilliwhnclt never saw
suoh a number gathered to hear n
temperance lecture before, Henderson
Hall boing seated to its utmost capacity. At the close quite a number
signed the pledge, as also on Sundav,
some joining the W. C. T. U. and
some tho I. O. G. T. Upon tho call
of Mra. Y. a foiest of hands went up
for Prohibition, only one perBou voting nay. Mrs Wells, na president of
Chilliwhack W C T U, was in tho
chair, surrounded ou the platform by
other lady officials of the WOTU,
ulso by the locnl clergy and tho VV C
T of the I OOT, Mr McSwaiHi As
on Sunday, the Good Templars appeared in full forco, wearing tlieir regalia. As a fitting conclusion, the following resolution, moved by Kov. C,
Bryant and seconded by A. 0. Wells,
Esq., was adopted by a rising vote,
amid enthusiastic cheers, viz.:
"Tliat wherens tlio visit of Mrs.
Youmans, President of tho Dominion
W. C. T. IT., to Chilliwhack has proved
eminently beneficial to tho cause of
temperance in our midst, as is shown
by thu numerous accessions to tho
local "branch of tho W, C. T. U, and
to the lodge of I. ().-(!. T. which havo
resulted from Mrs. Younmu's lectures,
and also by thu unprecedented impetus
wliich she has given to temperance sentiment nud opinion by her telling array of facts, convincing arguments nnd

Nbw York, Aug. 13.--The Herald
has -the following despatch from Governor Iroland, .of Austin, Tex.:—" To
the editor of tho Herald: You aBk my
views of the Cutting case. Cutting has
nover applied te me. It may be conceded, if necessary, that Cutting has been
legally convicted under Mexican law, but
the people aud govemment of the United
States cau never submit to such a rule of
■law. Every editor and every other person who writes or prints matter in the
United States obnoxious to the views of
the Mexico courts can, any time when
found in Mexico, be arrested and punished us Cutting has been. The person
of Cutting is not involved. Surely our
government has not made au idle demand. No one wants wnr, and I trust
no one wnnts peace at the expense of the
nntionnl honor nnd the rights of American citizens. The only way to avoid
war is to be ready for it, and show a
willingness to accept it'if it must lie.
Outrages have gone fur enough, and hecu
numerous enough. (Signed) John Irk-
i.and, Governor of Texas."
Belfast, Aug. 13 (2 p. ni.}.*—The excitement occasioned by the riots has been
revived by an outratro committed by the
Orangemen of Queen's Island upon a
Catholic named Johnson. Thc latter
was returning to hts home from work
when he was seized by Orangemen and
given a coat of tar and feathers. The
Catholics are very indignant at the outrage, und vow vengennce ngainst the perpetrators. Fivo hundred additional policemen nrrived to-dny. Since Saturday
50 seriously ■wounded patients have been
treated nt the Roynl Hospital and 200
more have been cared for by private surgeries, and it is estimated thnt probably
300 others received wounds iu .the riots,
whose cases have not been reported.

has just communicated this decision to

addressed to the bishop.
Brussels, Aug, ,,13.—It is believed
that no less than fifty thousand working-
men will attend the Socialist meeting
next Sunday which is authorized by the
burgomaster on condition that the parade
to and from it avoids the vicinity of the
King's palace. It is also thought, nearly
that number of meu will take part in the
procession. It will pass along the principal streets. 0000 soldiers hnve been
detailed to guard the route from disorder;
0000 other soldiers being stationed along

Emtok Columbian: IbIiuII consider
myself under groat obligations to you if
you will allow me a small space in your
valuable paper for the purpose of exposing what certainly appears to me to
be a cuso of very grent neglect on the
purt of homebody who U supposed to look
after the buildings now being put up iu
connection with the penitentiary. For
example, the officers' cottages. The material und work furnished come far abort
of tbe requirements of the plans and specifications. The buseyient walls ure
only 18 indie.*- thick; uud without a
through bond built with cobble stones,
and it is two feet lower thnn the specified
height. The timber and lumber goner-
ally is being put into tho building green.

favorably inclined towards thu contractor. When I tendered for the work I
expected to do it up to plans and speciji*

proud of. The nss-ts and liabilities are
sot forth iu minute detail, and the tables
show thnt, after making allowance for all
possiblo contingencies and providing for
overy debt, there is n surplus of §282,199
over liabilities ami capital combined.
Tho increase in thc assets in the laat year
was $2(10,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Compnny, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
snko merely of increasing new biiBiuess."

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES
HpcclBl to Ur 4'olHuililnn.
San Francisco, Aug. 12.—Kon-
neth McKay and (Jurstin, whu were
recently employed in the ofiiee of the
North British and Mercantile Insurance Co., have disappeared. On tbe
llrd inst. both were dismissed trom the
office under somewhat peeulia^oircum-
stances. Both men, it is stated, owed
money to overy man in the office at
the timo of their departure. Nothing
is known of the extent of any of their
deficiencies. It is now stated'thut
both men are indebted to a number of
others, and further that McKay haa
taken 300 held in trust for tho baseball league. McKay nrrived in this
city two years ago from Victoria. It
ia believed they have gone to Portland.
Wokoestbh, Mass., Aug. 12.—Han-
Ian rowed three miles with a turn on
Lake Quinsagmow to-day in li' m. 23
sec, beating all his previous records.
Milwal-kbk, Aug. 12.—Forest fires
in northern Wisconsin are dying out,
the materials witjj, which to feed them
having become exhausted. The vicinity of Green Bay is alone subject to
danger, but only in the event of high
winds. There is much suffering in the
devastated region. Homeless people
are sleeping on the ground with
scarcely any covering. Many people
barely escaped with their lives, and
are wandering around with insufficient
clothing. Public meetings are being
called iu various parts uf the state to
provide immediate relief for the sufferers in the way of foud and clothing.
Boston, Auy. 12.—The Bchr. Arizona capsized in the harbor to-night,
and four or five men composing the
crew were drowned.
SANTIACb de Cuba. Aug. 12.--The
receipts of tho government Bince July
lst have beeu nearly $4,000,000 in excess of the receipts' during the same
period last year. This is nu increase
of about $2,000,000 from customs and
abuut 81,800,000 from internal rev-
enue. These figures are said to be
indicative of a good Btate of business
throughout the country.

Long instance Telephoning*
The American Telephone and Telegraph Company uf New York has recently been organized fur the purpose
of establishing direct telephonio communication between the largo cities of
the country. Tlio tirst Une lias been
constructed between New York and
Philadelphia, tlio length of the route
adopted being nbout 100 miles. Four
years ago a similar attempt was made
to connect New York and Boston, but
thu iron wire strung between the two
cities did nut prove successful. The
present company has employed hard-
drawn copper wires, and new lias
st-vouty-four uf thein running tho
whole .-distance. The line is entirely
rtirial, except whore waterB of some
width aru crossed, in wliich cuse submarine cables are employed. Between
the two cities there are six series uf
cables, the longest stretches being nnder the Hudsuii and Deluwaue rivers.
The line will prubably be open for
business within n few weeks, and it is
expected that it will prove a great convenience.— Science American,
Struck by a Meteor.
A correspondent writes: ''As a gentleman, a well known public official,
was passing from St. James' Park into
Pall Mall by the garden wall of Marlborough House, recently, at a quarter
tu 5 in the afternoon, ho suddenly received un the right shoulder a violent
blow, accompanied by .a loud crackling
noise, which caused him great pain aud
to stumble forward as he walked. On
recovering his footing, aiul turning
round to see who had so unceremoniously struck him, he found that there
was no one on the pavement but himself and the policeman on duty at the
park end of it. On reaching home the
shoulder was submitted to examination, but nothing was at first discovered to account for tlie pain in ifc. But
in a little while the servant who had
taken away the coat to brush brought
it back to point out that over the right
shoulder the nap was pressed duwn
flat in a long, straight line, exactly as
if a hot wire had been sharply drawn
across the cloth. The accident is
therefore explained as having been
caused by the explosion of a minute
falling star or meteor, lt is an unprecedented and most interesting occurrence, and deserves, 1 think, to be
placed op public record."—Xondoii.

Boston, Aug. 12.—It is understood
the Somervillo police have information of the suspicious deaths uf at least
eleven persons directly or indirectly
related to Mrs.: Sarah Jane Robinson,
who is under arrest, and who were insured in a benefit organization, aud
where the money in most cases falls
into this woman's hands.
Citv of Mexico, Aug. 12.-—The
silver question is attracting much attention here. A suggestion has been
made that Mexican dollars be exported directly to China. The chamber of
commerce is taking an active part in
the general discussion of the question
every way worthy of the grand old
edifice, of which it is to form a most
important part, Tho entire instrument will be operated by electricity,
the supply being derived from a battery which is being placed in the old
singing school. Some idea of the wondrous properties of the new instrument
may bo gathered from the fact that the
length of the cables conducting tho
electric currents averagesl20 feet from
t'-e console (or keyboard) to the pneumatic levers operating the valves of
the sound boards. The organist will
occupy a raised position in the second
arch of the south aisle, just over the
spot where  the  old  instrument was

Dublin, Aug. 12.—The Irisli Times \ played, his manipulation of the keys . Westminster that thoy havo oppnod a
(Conservative) states tliat it is reliably
informed that Lord Randolph Churchill is engaged drafting a bill intended
to solve the Irish question. A skeleton of tlie measure is already prepared,
the paper says: "It provides for local
self-government throughout Great Britain and Ireland, giving Ireland, England, Scotland and Wales control each
of its own immediate, affairs, leaving
the supremo power of the imperial
parliament undiminished. The bill is
described as a measure which opens
the door to imperial federation. Tho
full text of the bill," tho paper says,
"will not be completed before next
February; but," adds the paper, "so
far twit has gune it has been submitted
to tlie Marquis of Salisbury, the Marquis of 'Hartington, and others, and is
broad enough tu satisfy all moderate
Irishmen."
San Francisco, Aug. 12.—The total
number of passengers who sailed from
here to-daj°for Portland was over 200.
The Sutter st. R-.Il.Co. has raised the
wages of all its conductors and grips-
mon from $2 a day to 82.25.
San Fuanoiscq, Aug. 12.—Cleared,
str. Mexico, for Victoria aud Sound
ports; sailed, str. Oregon, for Astoria.
San Francisco, Aug. 12.—A despatch was received to-day at the Merchants Exchange announcing that tho
schooner Dakota, which sailed from
this port .111110 oth, is a total loss at
Hokodale, Japun. No additional particulars were received. The owner of
the vessel is Capt. A. Anderson. The
Dakota waa valued at $24,000; partly
insured.
San . Francisco, Aug, 12. — Tlie
Southern Pacific Co, have mado a rate
of 835 to Now Orleans, which is $7:50
cheaper than the rate of othor overland
roads to St. Louis. This has caused
much feeling on the part of other roads
who have asked tlio Southom Pacific
to increase tlie rate to equal that made
by them to St. Louis. It is believed
this may open another general war of
rates,
San Franoisco, Aug. 12.—An earthquake was felt hero at 4:1(1 p.m.; vibrations from east to west, and of
three seconds duration.

being flashed by means of  the electricity through the 120 feet of cable to j
the action uf tho instrument in the tri*
forium   above.    The   organ  will  bo
blown by four men in the old singing j
school.   The whole of tho patents em- '
ployed iu the pneumatic  and  electric
action are  the  inventions uf Messrs.
Willis, who  are  affording  good evidence of tlieir intention to thoroughly
sustain their world-wide reputation in
in the work upon which they are now
engaged. —Electrical Hewn;
Panama Cannl.
The  Panama Canal Committee resolved on thc 28th of dune to ask live
of the  ministers .to  confer with it.
Although  the committee, which was
nominated by a very thin attendance
in   the   Bureaux,  is  hostile  to  the
scheme, these explanations may modify its views.    Even, however, should
its-report be adverse, it will be difficult, if not impossible, for the Chamber to refuse to sanction the lottery
loan uf Ii00,000,000f., required by tho I
company for  the completion of the
cannl.    It is admitted that M. DeLes- j
seps did nut foresee all the technical '
and climatic difficulties with which he '
wuuld   havu to cope.     If tho works
commenced, and now  far advanced,
had to l)o abandoned by the present!
company, the Americans wmild take ;
its place, reaping the entire fruits of ]
what hasheen dono; while the French
investors   would have no equivalent \
whatever  for  their sacrifices.     The
Times' Paris correspondent says; "It! *|-y
being certain that if France abandons j ±J
tho  enterprise, America will take it
up and complete it for hor own ox- j
elusive profit, it cannot he supposed j
that tho chamber will debar the share-
holders frum their chanco of sooner or I
later  being  recouped for their outlay I
whon   the  canal  begins, like that of |
Sue/,, to realize profits,   The inference j
iB therefore that, despite all the diffi- '■
culties springing up iu the company's
way, the bill will   pass tho chamber,
which can scarcely pretend to be more
mindful   of  the subscribers' interests
than the subscribers themselves aro."
Tho Loudon Times correspondent is
mistaken in asserting that thc Americans will take up the Panama canal
project if tho French abandon ft,
I There is not thu slightest evidence of
| any such desire or intention on the
part of   lhe   peoplu of  this  country.
