The Chinese Concessions.
A correspondent of the San Fran
cisco Bulletin, writing from Shanghai under date of August 24th,.a»jp:
The most contradictory rumors
concerning Count Mithiewici and
his syndicate prevail here, The
North Ohina Daily Nam gives the
establishment of the new bank its
fullest credit, but there are those
who hold that this journal has been
"influenced" to write as it does. It
is simply absurd to state that the
Chinese customs are tp be put
under the control of the
American syndicate. As every
one knows, the custom serrioe is
entirely under British surveillance,
and has been time and again the efficient means of raising a loan in the
London money market. Any proposal
to bring the management of the
Chinese customs under the new the
syndicate would meet with energetic
protest on the part of Great Britain's
representatives. One thing ie certain. Tbe syndicate represented by
Count Metkiewicz has obtained the
contract for the establishment of
telephone linos in all Chinese ports.
But what docs this amount tol
Absolutely nothing, sp far as I can
see. Tlie use of telephones in
China wUl bo very small for many
years to come; even in the capital
the demand of anything of the kind
is insignificantly small. And granting even that this concession includes—which it probably does not
—the right of opening up telegraphic communication between1" the
various centers of Ohinese commerce,
the undertaking is one full of enormous obstacles. The people are
averse to anything which appears
dissonant from their geomatic
theories. • The reason why, even in
this present year, telegraph poles
nave been uprooted and wires cut is
because these western innvations are
believed to obstruct the free passage
of the/enj shui—"wind aud water"
—spirits, and thus bring misfortune
upon the land. It may be possible
that a government telegraph line between a few of the largest cities will
escape the* unreasoning dislike of
the people; hut even in this caw it
will requite the constant watchfulness of a lrrge body of troops to
keep the Hue intact. Ohina is not
so waked up as the articles of the
concessions granted to the new corporation would seem to indicate.
Count Metkiewicz has been labor
ing for two years, backed by a capital fully adequate to carry out
almost gigantic schemes; but it is not
to be supposed that this very thing
has not been attempted often enough before, Nor does it seem probable that the Ohinese authorities are
so very fond of the United States
that they should in this instance
have become so thoroughly Americanized. And what of the railroad
grunt? So fur as the line between
Tientsin and Fekin is concerned, ita
construction has long since passed
into French hands, that nation'a representatives offering to build the
line ten per cent cheaper than all
the other competitors. It is utterly
ridiculous to speak glibly of "a railroad between Canton and Fekin."
The nuturnal obstacles in the way
of suoh an enterprise are simply
enormous, not to speak of the fact
that tho inhabitants of Southern
Fubkien nnd Northern Kwangtung
—the two most important seaboard
provinces—are notoriously disaffected and always opposed to government innovations. Scores of years
have still to pass before such a
scheme oould boost even the possibility of success. Much more
likely to succeed would be a rail-
mod between the capital and some
of thb most important cities on the
Yangtsze. The establishment of
a line running to Wuhu has long
.been projected; yet even in this case
it must not Ire forgotten that these
self sanro towns were once the
strongholds of the Taeping rebels,
and ni-e far from being loyal centers
today. We are told Anally that
the concessions made to the
American syndicate include the
minting of new coin, perhaps the
issuing of new bank notes, and the
right to discover nnd work mines
throughout the empire. Aa for the
tint mathir, the rumor is palpably
false. Nothing of the kind can possibly be true. The government has
its own mint, and has hitherto persistently refused to allow any other
nation to interest itself in the natter,   Copper cash are the only coins
current and the only coins demand
ed by traffic to the interior. These
are minted in Fekin, under government supervision, and it is very far
from being even probable that the
syndicate of Oount Metkiewicz will
get hold of this coinage; and I
doubt very much whether it would
pay if they did. With regard to
the mines, one can only trust that
the presentions of the count are
founded on fact, China's mineral
wealth is incalculably large, and
only a small portion haa been utilized
heretofore. Still,) foreign residents
in this contary completely discredit
the count's statements in this connection, nor can I believe that the
government itself wonld ever agree
to such a concession.

TERRIBLE FISHIKO DISASIXBS.
Montreal, Sept. 14.—A special to
the Star, dated Halifax, Sept. IS says:
Captain Goodrich, of the schooner
Willie McGowan, of Shelbourne, from
the Grand Banks says there will be
hundreds of lad hearts in New; England and the provinces when the
fiihermen's muster roll is call thia sea-
eon. While off Liverpool yesterday,
he spoke the bark Harold whose skipper, Captain Lyona, reported having
passed many wrecked and capsized
vessels on his way home from tho
banks, whose crews must have perished during the great atorm. Captain
Lyons aaya one of tho most heartrending
spectacles ever witnessed on* "that
race course of the winds, the1 Grand
Banks," was that represented onboard
of the battered hulk of a fiiahing vessel whioh was thrown upon her beam
ends by the violence of the sea and
was aimlessly drifting at the mercy of
the wild waves. Skipper Lyona boarded the craft with difficulty, nut found
no signs of life about her decks. Peering down the skylight of the cabin
which was out of the water, he beheld
a sickening light. A number of dead
fishermen were floating about in the
waah of tbe sea, while sevetal small
shirks were tearing their limbs launder and feeding voracioualy on their
flesh. The sight made Lyons' blood,
freeze, but he could render no milt-
ance in rescuing the bodies, nor could
he got them out of the cabin and link
them in the ocean, and waa compelled
to leave them a prey to the ravenous
sharks.
The skipper says that at most half of
the disaatera reiulting from the itorm
have not yet been reported. Advicea
from St Pierre give details of disaatera
which overtook the Frenoh fishing
fleet in the galea. One hundred vessels were demoralized, and fifty lives
lost. Scores of fishermen were alio
seriously injured many having armi
and lege broken. The cchoouet St
Pierre waa lost with all hands. The
fishing season haa ended disastrously
to the French, The catch is one-third
below that of last year. The losses of
gear, etc, incurred during the gale
were enormous, added to which is the
fact that the distressed vetieli lose a
month of September fithing. These
thingi have combined to already advance the price of codfish 15 per cent
at St. Pierre.
CHEAP WHEAT.

AK IMPORTANT MANIFESTO.
Losno.v, Sept 15.—The manifesto
issued yesterday by the Comte de
Paris ia attaoting a good deal of attention here mid across the channel,
where the amazing rapidity with which
it was circulated all over the county is
a matter of wonder itself. The manifesto is the topic of the hour. Under
ordinary circumstances such a document would have been puerile and
futile, but with the aoumen of an experienced statesman, the Comte timed
its appearance, and haa issued hii
manifesto at a moment when it wil be
moit potent and more likely to have
tho desired effect on the milidi ot
Frenchmen. Kouvier'i minutry,
never strong, holds on in a precarious
condition, and Franco ia ready any
day to hear of ita downfall. To the
Loyalist party it looks for support,
and if tins is witheld, the influence of
the ministry in its feeble condition
would speouily dissolve. In fact, the
Loyalists occupy much the same position in France towards the government
that the Unionists do in England. To
out looso from the counsel of the Loyalists and to ignore their suggestions
would be to court political death.
The appearance of the manifesto at
thii particular time givea an. emphatic
chock to the exuberant joy with which
Franco convulsed over the ministers uf
the 17th Army Corps, which haa successfully demonstrated the schemes of
mobilization. It distracts the publio
mind from the absorbing aatiafaction
it feela in the fancied possession of an
army that is now able to punish Germany, and direct! it into other channels than those which lead to the desire for revenge. It, however, threatens the fall of the llouvier ministry,
which cannot openly accept the terms
of the manifesto; and between the desire to retain the support of the Loyalists and the perplexity in regard to
pleasing the republican portion of
France, the government ■ in sore
stiaita.   The Count'i manifesto may
thus have a decided influence on th*
mind of the fickle government, aad go .
along way towards taking the fint
step in the direction of a monarchy.

that the government is preparing a reply to the manifesto of the Comte de
Paris, in which they Will explain tkt

An Outside Opinion.
We havo frequently pointed out
the importance to this part of the
province of the completion ef the
railway system of the coast by the
construction of the missing link
connecting the C. P. R. tomiinus
with American lines by way of this
city and Seattle; and we have always held that this connection
would not injure any public interest. When. Senator Dickey was at
Seattle he gave expression to his
views on that project, and his opinion quite coincides with that ot
Columbian. In the course of an
intorview he said: "He was much
pleased to observe the feeling which
pervaded the people of the city in
favor of friendly intercourse with
the through route over the
Canadian Pacific Railway. He
thought it would be a most fortunate thing for Seattle if a through
rail connection could bo made with
the Canadian Pacific Railway, at
Westminster. If connection were
made witii the Canadian Pacific
Railway, Seattle and the neighborhood would be able to share largely
in the export business to the east
He believed that the building of the
line to Westminster would be of
mutual benefit to both the territory
of Washington and the city of
Seattle in particular and also to the
Canadian Pacific Railway. It would
take no business from but would
rather add to the business of Vancouver and Westminster. Another
thing that should be considered in
this connection was that if the
line were built from Seattle to
Westminster, it would also compel
the St. Paul, Minneapolis and Manitoba rond to make this city their
western terminus. They would find
it much to their advantage to build
here, rather than to any other
point" This opinion from an eastern man, one who has no prejudices
to warp his judgment, and a warm
friend of the G. P. R., is all the
more valuable because the gentleman who uttered it is a prominent
member of the Canadian senate.
The Provincial Exhibition.
From all appearances the people
of Chilliwhack seem to be making
ample provision for the great event
which takes place there on the 28th
inst Mr. 3. C. Henderson, who
was in the oity a few days ago, informed us that the exhibition buildings ind grounds are now finished,
The grounds comprise four acres of
land which has all been leveled and
seeded down. The agricultural hall
is 32x64 feet, and 2 stories high.
It is nearly the same size as the
building at Viotoria, constructed
generally on the same plan. The
upper flat il j-eached by a convenient stUrWay,' and the two large
rooms will be amply sufficient for
all the exhibits that are likely to be
presented. Ths whole building has
been fitted up in first-class style.
On the grounds have been erected
36 stalls for stock, These stalls
are enclosed, and provided with
lock and key, so that persons who
bring valuable stock may be sure
their animals will be comfortable
and >*fe. Over the stalls is a place
for nay which can be placed within
reach of the animal without trouble.
There an .also pens for sheep and
pigs, extending along tbe enclosure
328 feet Another corner is assigned
to poultry, with numerous and convenient apartments. Within the
grounds a trotting track has been
laid out for speeding horses, It is
a little over a quarter of a mile,
level, and well made. It is claimed
that the provisions made for the
exhibition this year are superior to
those of any previous year, and all
that now remains to be done is to
get the exhibits and tbe crowd.
Some people have expressed doubts
as to the ability of Chilliwhack to
provide accommodation for all who
may be expected to visit the exhibition, Mr. Henderson informs us
that a canvau has been made of
the settlement, and it has been ajcer
tained that accommodation oan be
furnished for 800 people. This is
probably as many as will be present
at any one time. Persons who have
been contemplating a visit to the
exhibition need have no fear, therefore, respecting the accommodation
for themselves, their cattle, or anything they may choose to bring. It
is not possible at this date to determine with any certainty how much
success will be achieved by this exhibition. Hitherto a large percentage of the agricultural exhibits have
come from Chilliwhack, and it may
be taken for granted that this year,
when the exhibition is being held
there, every person in the settlement will do his utmost to make it
successful. It is to be feared that
thi* year th* agricultural product*
will in som* respects come short.
In a gnat many settlements the
drought bas affected the crops, and
samples will not be equal to those of
yean */fc*0i the conditions were
more faro-aMe to development. But
we hope the-ftnners will not be deterred from bringing tho best they
can get, and *ul even put themselves to to**"* inconvenience to
nake tb* *b0* a* Urge and attractive a* pouihle under the circum-
itance*.

An Amazing Adventure With a
I wns in charge of a party making n
survey for a railruml lino between Nug-
jiior and Hyderabad, India (said Major
White), and as Ihcre was no hurry about
the work our party was as much a hunting ns n surveying party. We numbered
aliout iSS people, ton of whom were white
men. Owing to tiie difficulties of tho
country wo Tin 1 no saddle horses, but
took along nix or eight pack animals, and
inch iiritivrr also had a pack to bear. The
wry dilliinitties in tlie way ol building a
lino made the country a sportsman's
paradise. Twenty yenrs ago there was
more wild and savage game to tho acre
in that district than elsewhere south of
Lucknow, but tlie march of civilization
has iloiil.tl.is driven tho big wild giiino
awny liy this time.
We were traveling along tho nortli
branch of the tladnvey Rivoiv-sotnetiiiios
upon its bank nnrl iigain a couple of miles
from tho water, sometimes travelling live
Or six miles a dny, and again halting for
a couple of days to Hsh or shoot—when
a most singular incident befell me individually. I had left camp at an enrly
hour iii tlio morning to tlsh. While I
carried my ri Do with me, I hod no intention of going out of my way to find game.
I On the previous afternoon I had observed
what seemed to bo a capital (lulling spot
in a bend of the river, and It was to this
place I hastened as I left camp, Some
of the native servants were astir nnd saw
i me set out, but I did not want tlieir services, It was pretty thick jungle between
>. the camp ami tlie bend, but at tlio bend
/ thore was a clear spot an acre in extent,
' with a heavy forest growth and a ledge
' of rooks for a background. As I took a
look around before sitting down on the
bank to my sport I remarked that it was
a good spot for wild beasts, but as thero
was nothing moving I went right to work
with my fishing tackle. Catching a frog
for bait, I Hung in the hook, and it wasn t
live minutes before I was meeting with
such luck that all thoughts of tigers,
snakes, and hyenas were driven out of
my mind.
I had landed hall a dozen good-sized
Iish, and was just then playing n larger
one; when a slight noise startled me, and
I hulked around to see such a sight as
lias seldom come to the eyes of a sportsman. A full-grown tiger was within live
feet of tne, playing with one of the fish.
It was the lust Hsh pulled out, and in its
dying agonies it was jumping nbout ou
trie gram. Every timo it moved the tiger
would reach out a paw in a playful way,
nud once or twice he struck hard enough
to move the Hsh three or four feet. I
Ml you I wns a badly frightened man,
■and all I could do was to sit thero with
mouth and eyes open. The tiger had
'crept down from the bluffs, and why ho
hadn't attacked ine was a mystery. He
weut from Iish to Hsh, turning them over
with his paw, mid time and again brushing uie with his tail as he moved about.
My rille was ten feet away, leaning
aririiiist a bush, and I might nave beeu
idiot enough to try to reach it but for a
warning. My personal servant had followed mo, to see what luck I had.- He
came into the neighborhood while the
tiger was playing with the Hsh, and,
softly climbing a tree, ho uttered tho call
ul a bird to attract my attention, and
then sung out: '
"Do nothing to provoke the tiger,
aster,   Ue is a hilowcele, and if you do
' not cross him he will go away." '
He meant thnt the spirit of a good
native hail been transformed, and it was
t'leiiriy tho common-sense way to follow,
his advice. As tlie beast gave me no attention, I turned to the Iish tugging at
my lino and landed him. He was of
guild size and full of vitality, and the tiger
waited in a playful way untill removed
the honk asd turlWtkeiPH eh the grass.
.Then he sprang for it as a latton would
' for a ball of yarn, and he played with it
in the same way. It was laughable, in
spite of the circumstances, to witness
his actions.  He would ran around In
» circles, as yon have seen a young dog do,
sometimes almost leaping over me, and
then again he would become the cat and
creep softly forward to bounce upon one
nf the fish. Each one as caught was
flung to him, and It was a lull half hour
before ho grew tired ol the sport, I expected he would turn to me sooner or
later, but the native saw the change of
demeanor first and called;
. "Master, the hwouetee ia going to play
'j with you I Be aa clay in his power."
I The tiger suddenly left the last fish
landed, and came stalking up to me,
purring like a cat and acting very playful. His first move waa to worni his
l head under my left arm, and, I'm telling
you the solemn truth when I say that I
smoothed down his fur as if he had been
a favorite dog.   I had on a big straw hat.
1' nnd this he got hold of in his teeth, and
ilnycd with tor ten minutes, or until he
mil torn It all to pieces.  I had no more
bait to fish with, and draw, In the line,
and sat there writing for the tiger's next
move,   When he had finished the hat,
he eamo over and rubbed against me,
and purred in a ploased way, and I rubbed him with my hand from nose to tail.
I grndualy got over my scare, but was
-et very anxious to know how the affair
raid end.  The sun was getting well up
\ very hot, and the beast would soon
peeking hla lair.   In about thirty
utes from the time he appeared the
.- began to show a change of demca-
He acted nervous and uneasy, and

A Mountain of Alton.
Mr. G. M. Shaw has returned from a
month's trip to the Gila River country in
the southwestern portion of Socorro
County, where he went with Messrs.
Brown, and Bergen to survey nnd report
on the recent alum discoveries, there,
which have been located by a company
nf rSocorro citizens.
Mr. Slrnw reports almost a solid mountain of alum over a mile square, some of
tlie cliffs of which riso to an elevation of
700 feet above the river bed. MoBt of tho
alum is in an impure state and tasting
very strongly of sulphuric ncid, but of
whicli there seems to he an inexhaustible
quantity. Home of the .Cliffs, however,
show immenso quantities of nlmost pure
mnrketnblealum. This.alum Hud, Mr.
Shaw tells us, is on the Gila Hlver ubout
two miles below the fork of the Little
Gila and four miles below the Gila hot
springs,
Mr. Shaw reports numerous hot
springs in that section, most of them
gushing out of tlio rocks that form the
river banks, some ol them hot enough to
cook in, and most of them too hot to hold
the hand in. Tlie main hot springs referred to abovo aro reported to have
effected wonderful rheumatic and othor
cures, The country is abundantly watered and woodod, and is covered with tho
H nest of grass. The Gila is full of trout
nnd other fish. Game, while still mo.l-
eratoly plentiful, litis been mostly scrirert
away from the region of tlie hot spring by
professional and other hunters, as well as
ranchmen, who are beginning to locate in
this difficult to-get-at section of tlie Gila.
At present the only way to get into this
section is with packed animals ovor a precipitous trail of several miles, wagons
having to be abandoned in the Gorge of
the Initio Gila on the North Star Road,
about two miles from tlio hotsprings and
about seven miles from the alum find,
going from Socorro or from tlie Black
range. By the way of Silver City and
Georgetown wagons aro abandoned on
"Sapio" Creek, with about eighteen miles
of packed animal trail, to the hot
springs.
Mr. Shaw being an amateur photographer, also, invariably carries that "outfit"
along on his surveying trips, combining
pleasure with business, and bringing back
with him photographs of all objects and
scenes of interest that he meets with on
tho way. He brings back from this trip
oversixty photographs of the Gila county,
among winch ate u number of exterior
and photographs interior of somo interesting dilldwellers' rains he encountered
in a cave about four miles west from the
hot springs.

If
arod not rise to ny leet, but I made
ny mind that lithe tiger attacked me
nonld make a spring off the bank into
ie river.  It was infested with crocodiles, but there was not much choice bo-
_ .twecn being eaten by beut or saurian.
'(Once the tiger glared at me and growled,
Unto next moment whined as if afraid,
aim edged up toward me as li ior protection.   The servant had been keeping a
watchful eye on my strange playmate,
and he now believed the time had come
for decisive action.   He therefore fired
his pistol and shouted at the.top of bis
voice,   The effect was immediate,   The
beast drooped hla tail, uttered a long-
drawn whine, lad with a sort ol farewell
Slance at me he boiled ior the forest and
isappeared.  I had look*] him over
pretty woll; and had noticed, among other
things, that he had a broken claw on the
right paw,        ,
Wo did hot break camp that day-. Just
before sunset, as we sat in groups smoking our pipes, a tiger charged boldly in
among (lie servants and seized one and
attempted to make off, We rallied to
prevent, and the beast knocked two other
men over beforo he was despatched.
When we eamo to examine' the body I
had not tho slightest difficulty In idontl-

Tho researches of modern philologists
have proved, hy the study uf languages
and tlieir roots, Unit most of the nations
of mo leru K.tirope have dose nidcd from
the same Aryan parents of the inhabitants of tlie I urban peninsula. Climate,
iu the coui'sj of tlmo, has so modified
them as apparently to produce different
races. Fo; suell n change to take lilrtcir,
geiilugicul lap res of time are certainly re*
quired. Our earliest records, dating back
several thousrin I years, show these races,
to hnve been just such lis they are now,
quite us distinct. In these days th-' Aryan
races of l'ui'opo cannot roar their eliildren
in the climiito of India, wliere tlieir
Hindoo relatives thrive and propngnti
their species.- In Palestine nnrl lyiypt
the biblical records, those of tho l'hnrniihH,
and nlso of Nineveh and Babylon, show
these regions to have been inhabited,
several thousand years ago, by nations
and liirres presenting precisely the same
ro< o characteristics as those that now in-
hu rit them.
During tho historical period, the races
of Europe, have in vain endeavored to
colonize the valley of the Nile, but they
have not been able to propagate their
species, and have died away, leaving the
valley of the Nile to its ancient inhabitants. Their children cannot withstand
tho heat of summer. On the northeastern
shore of Africa, the Algeria of the present
history presents the same record. The
Romans and the Visigoths occupied ita
filains for centuries, continually recruit.
ng their colonies from the mother
countries; and yet. except in the mountains, all traces of their presence has disappeared. They could not rear their
children so as to occupy tho laud of the
Arabs. What lengthened periods of time
must have elapsed to so profoundly
modify races deriving their origin from a
common parentage, that they can no
longer live and propagate their species in
the same climate.
A Queer Pardon Story.
Queer things happen in this pardon
business. Historian L. B. B. Proctor,
author of "Bench and Bar" and several
other standard works, was telling mo the
other day of a peculiar pardon case under
Governor Seward. Mr. Proctor was a
student in Governer Seward's law office
in Auburn whon Judge Siuuuel Match-
ford was a partner of Seward. A man
and his wifo had been convicted of a
crime, and both were sent to State Prison.
He wae Bent to Auburn, and she was
serving a term in Sing Sing. Sympathy
had been aroused for the woman, nnd a
petition signed by many ittlluontiul
names was presented to Governor Su ward
lor her pardon. After mature consideration ho decided to grant it, and on his
way to New York one day Btnpped at
Sing Sing and delivered the pardon papers
himself—an unusual thing. The woman's
name was Frances and her husband's
name was Francis. She wns handed the
pardon and walked out. Seeing thut the
masculine form ''Frauds," apptnuwl in
the pardon, she took a train at once ior
Auburn and presented the-jrar Jon to the
Wardon, with the statement that she had
just been pardoned by Governor Seward,
and been allowed to bring her husband's
pardon in person. The Warden looked
at it It called ior tho release ol the
man, and he was brought out, handed
the pardon, and allowed to go froo.
When Governor Seward found out the
mistake he thought it better to say nothing about it, and the prisoner was never
returned.
A OrangeMn a Hl( Hotel.
A granger from Indiana strayed into
qpe of the large hotels, and said he'd like
to stop until the night train went out.
That' was just before the dinner hour.
When mealtime was announced tile man
irom Indiana advanced to the counter
aud asked where the sink was. I knew
what he wanted, and waved my hand In
the direction of the washroom, He
started off, and in about a minute I heard
loud laughter from the people outside iu
tho corridor. On looking out, I saw my
country friend busily engaged In wash-
ing his face at the driiiking-fointtnln. 1
hastened out, to inform him that he had
made a mistake; but ho met me before '.
could reach the spot. He prevented it
ludicrous sight Tho water was drippini:
from hia face, head and bauds, while l.i..
hat, coat and vest, lay in a heapon a dialr
near the fountain,
"Whardo yo keep yer towel?" stammered out the old follow.
One oi the porters then took pity on
tho stranger and led him to the place hu
wanted, where he finished his toilet:

A Good Move.—Tho forest fires
which occurred in tho Solkirks during
the earlier part of'tlic summer did so
much damage to the C. P. tolegra|)h
Co.'s lines, and kopt the sorvico in
such a very unsatisfactory condition
for ovor a month, that the company
have been compelled to put a large
force of men at work cleanup the timber from the vicinity of the track.
It is expected this action will remove

witness the contest. As Mr. Blaok

all sorts of athletic contests, the team
he has chosen will no doubt be composed of the proper material, and no

may be it will have to fight hard for
the victory.

The Pet Seal Gone. — Several
months sgo Mr. Vlsnen caught a young
sesl which has since grown to be a
regular thumper and a great pet.
Several times people have offered to
purchase it, but the owner having he-
come greatly attached to it refused to
sell. Yesterday two Indians wanted
to buy the seal but were not successful in their negotiations although the
inducement, offered wore great. This
morning the seal was missing and in
the place where it usually slept wss a
pool of blood whieh Mr. Vianen thinks
came from the sesl. Mr. Vianen is of
opinion that the Indians returned during the night and aftor killing the seal
cattied it away. The Indians are said
to be extremely fond of seal flesh.

Very Mark Sat* rlsei Indeed.
Yesterday, morning our ootemporary
of the Vanoouver Newt published an
item respecting the woollen mill in
this city, giving tho dimensions of the
building and staling that it was intended for the manufacture of blankets,
etc. This morning ho expressess surprise thst" neither of the local papers
of that city (Westminster) 'have
thought it (the mill) of sufficient importance to refer to it." We are afraid
our Vanoonver cotemporary is only
simulating surprise. As a matter of
fact both the Westminster papers h.ve
frequently noticed the woollen mill,
and the Columbian long ego gave nil
facta of Interest contained in our co-
temporary's item of yosterday morning, snd a great many more. We are
fully alive to the importance of thu establishment of this new industry in
Westminster, and have'endeavored to
help it forward from the time the proposal wsb first made until the present
time; and as soon aa tbe first piece of
oluth hss been turned oat we shall
publish an extended.daseription of the
establishment, which baa for some time
been In course of preparation in view
of that event. For once that our Vancouver ootemporory hss noticed tlie
woollen mill,, the Comihxmn has
nolioed It fifty timet. At the same
time we are always pleaeed to obterre
notices In outside papers respecting
Westminster snd bet industries, ami
have no quarrel with our cotemporary
on that wore,
Herring's Opera Ilouse.
There having been many enquiries
mrtdo as to whether tho above opera
house would be erected this year, our
representative called upon Mr. Herring who kindly furnished the following information on the subject. Mr.
Herring stated he had let the contract
to Mr. James Turnbull, who engages
to have tho building finished by uie
latter part of November. The site
has been changed from Mary to
Provost st. The building will be 132
xtill, with a stage 50x35 feet. A large
vestilmlo and ticket office will be on
the right of tho entrance mid a largo
cloak room with toilet articles for
ladies on tho other side. Tile auditorium and gallery are calculated to seat
1000 porsons comfortably; thore will
also be a row uf boxes on eithor side of
the proscenium, A handsome drop
curtain is being made, besides an outer
canvas curtain as a protection to the
inner ono. Tho latter will be divided
into squares and on which will be
painted tho business advertisements of
eity merchants and othors. Add to
this a large groen room and two large
dressing rooms and we have an opera
house that will be a credit to the eity
and a source of comfort and enjoyment
to our citizens. The floor oould not
be made on two levels as the building
will be used for balls, parties, bazaars,
public assemblies, etc., but the seats
have been arranged to gradually rise
from the front and made movable so
that they can sll be cleared out for a
bull or other entertainment. Particular attention has- been paid to the
foundation for tho floor. The floor
will be of the best lix3 edge grain
flooring, which is one of the best and
most expensive that can be obtained,
and will no doubt be appreciated by
those who trip tbe light fantastic.
Every precaution hss been taken to
make the building safe and the means
of exit ample with sll doors opening
outwards. The building will bo lighted by electricity. The energy and enterprise displayed by Mr. Herring in
entering singly into this work deserves
the highest praise, and if we had a
dozen more men of his stamp among
us the city would soon feel the benefit.
May overy success attend Herring's
opera house.
