Gurreit Kwml» and Opinions.
Mr. Gladstone's speech upon moving the second road iug of his Irish
bill was a general reply to the chief
objections thatt havo been' urged
against it, and a strong statoDioub
of tho reasons for which it ought to
lift adopted. Th* chief objection,
repeated in various forma by ali the
opponents of the bill, is that it is
the beginning of a dissolution of the
empire. This is the cry by which
its adversaries hope to defeat it.
To this .assertion Mr. Gladstone
oilers a peremptory denial, and alleges that the natural effect of the
hill will be to cement the union.
It is the imperial union which the
present situation constantly threatens, yet it is the remedy for this
danger, not the danger itself, which
the opponents of the bill decry.
Besides this undoubted truth, Mr.
Gladstone said thnt Mr. Parnell, the
representative of the Irish demand
and feeling, hud declared that what
he sought under the name of home
rule was simple autonomy for Ireland. This statement was received
wiih derision, and this derision expresses undoubtedly the Knglish
feeling against the lill. It is evident from the speeches of the opposition that it regards tlie Irish movement as u conspiracy for Reparation
from Kngland, with un ultimate
view of vengeance for the long woes
of Ireland by a foreign alliance
against the oppressor. It follows
that the word of no Irish leader
upon the subject can be taken. It
is assumed to bo deceptive unless it
frankly declares this purpose. This
creates what the FrenX'h call an im
possible situation. According to
this view the English prime minister is endeavoring to dtttftroy thq
empire under the plea of strengthening it, or he is the blind dupe of his
own fatuity and of traitorous schotn-
ers craftier thnn himself. But if
this bu the actual In-liof of his adversaries, why do they not answer
his direct challenge for an alternative polioy 1 If, as is alleged. by
some of them, Ireland at the present
time has no more reason to complain
of the present government than
Kent or Yorkshire, if there he perfect equality of rights, representation, and laws, why not declare that
the sole necessity of the situation is
the maintenance of the existing government I. Or if, as thu caucus of
Liberals at Mr. Chamberlain's declared, some kind of autonomy for
Ireland is necessary, why do Hiey
not state what kind it shall be I
when two men agree that a certain
thing ought to ho done at once, and
one proposes a definite way of doing
it, the other cannot be permitted
merely to suy that he prefers some
other way, but doesn't know what,!
The theory that Mr. Parnell and
the other leaders are liars, and mean
something wholly different froni
what they say, puts an end to serious discussion of Mr. Gladstone's
scheme or any other, It remands
the British parliament to the duty
of defending the country against a
dangerous treasonable conspiracy;
and as the theory necessarily implies that Ireland in a nest of traitor*, the defeat of the bill, if it
should occur, should he followed by
an armed investment of the country.
It is plain that defeat is apprehended by many friends of the bill, nnd
in the event of its passage hord
Randolph Churchill openly threattjus
civil war in Ulster, and Mr. Chamberlain justifies it. Mr. Gladstone
evidently feels the force of tho oh
jeotion to the exclusion of uu Irish
representation from the Imperial
parliament, but his suggestion of
Irish attendance upon special occa
sions, or of the formation of a commission by each parliament to treat
of Imperial interests, is vague and
unsatisfactory. He is, howover, a
dtateamau of infinite resource, aud
he will undoubtedly make every concession which is compatible with the
essential purpose of his scheme. No
parliamentary debate of this genernr
ti-fl^;-has, been more important than
that whieh lias now opened.—Harper's Weekly,

VOLUME 29
NEW
STER, B. 0., WEDNESDAY, JUNE 2, 1886,
NUMBER 44
Of all the prohlums which present1 themselves for solution to the
practical politician of to-day, those
arising from race prejudice would
appear to lw the most intricate and
the most hopelossly insoluble, Woru
there nny foundation of reason in
the views wliich men Mike up with
regard to their nationality, there
might be some means of meeting
the difficulty; hut there is really no
subject on which mon adopt such
strong views without any basis of
faot to support them. It was only
the other, duy, for instauye, thnt
Lord Rosebery, RpeahfMAi Edinburgh, warned Scotsnf-^FljfMif' no j
account to forget their n^iwyili-ty;
and even a learned mnn H-lraueiflu
wrote many abstruse i-hajffin'-wffi,
a view to pointing out the Mtter-
enoe between the English and Scotch
intellects.     And yet sash niepAs
Hume, Latham, dreefa, Act, oilier
reliable authorities altfjw isitlpib
the inhabitants of the t*Alipds of
Scotland are undoubtedly descended
from the Angles who g-jye their
name to England, that the namo of
Scot belongs by right to a band of
Irish freebooters, and that Scotsmen
are quite as English us*tW#English
themselves.    Even the man of blood
and irqn cannot persuaije tftc men
of Alsace" and Lorrainei -Htyt their
forefathers were Germati*; aiid there
are many thousands of Irishmen today  who   prido   theiuaeldbc   upon
nothing so much as thetf itattonal-
ity, and who yet are the unmistakable descendants of the 8nx« wj.om
they^no^Wtt'^itW^r-Atelt.'   Instances   of   tbe   same   description
might be multiplied to almost any
extent, and the only conclusion to
be drawn. from them ii that race,
like religion, litis become simply a
question of faith—that it is almost
impossible to deal with it logically.
And yet this same race prejudice
forms one of tbe most important
factors in modern politics, and it is
one of all tools in the hands of tbe
self-seeking professional politician.
As a source of danger to our modern political institutions its influence
can hardly be exaggerated.    Under
the.old monarchical form of government it was comparatively easy
to hold mixed races together, but
our modern popular government is
singularly ill-adapted to cope with
the difficulty.   To quote from Sir
H.. Maine:- ,"Of aU modern irrocon-
cilables, the nationalists appear to
be the most impracticable, and of all
governments, popular governments
seem least likely to cope with thom
suceessfully.     Nobody can say exactly what nationalists are, aud indeed the dangerous ii ess of the theory
arises from its vagueness.   It seems
full of the seeds of future civil convulsion.    As it is sometimes put, it
appears to assume that men of one
particular  raco sutler injustice if
thoy   tite placed under the siiiue
political  institutions with men of
another race.     But race is just as
ambiguous  a term  as nationality.
The earlier philologists hud certainly supposed that the branches of
mankind speaking languages of the
$ame stock were somehow connected
by- blood;, but no scholar now believes that this is more than approx-'
imatoly true; for conquest, contact,
and the ascendancy of a particular
literate class have quite as much to
do with community of language as
common descent.     Moreover, several of the communities claiming
tho benefit' of the new theory are
certninly uot entitled to it.   The
Irish are au extremely mixed race,
and  it  is only by a perversion of
language that the > Ttuliahs ■ cuu.'be
called a race at alt. The fact is that
any  portion of   a political society
which has bad a some wlmt different
history from the rest of the parts
can take advantage of the theory
and claim independence, and cap thus
threaten the entire society with dismemberment.   Democracies are quite
paralyzed by the plea of nationality.
There is n-< moro effective way of attacking tlitun. than by admitting the
right of the majority to govern but
denying that the majority bo entitled
is the particular majority which claims
the right."   When examined from this
point of viow, the attempt to establish
what ia called a "parti-national" ia tho
province of Quebec, is both interesting
imd instructive, inasmuch as it is an instance  of  race   prejudice, pure and
simple, without a single solid grievance
behind it. Sir H. Maine says that it is
only by a perverawn oJ Immuuj-e that
the Italians* can  ba callwl a rue at
all, and the iiuae rati)ark it equally applicable to tbe French-Canadian. Apart
from the Jews, who constitute one of
tho few existing races which can lay
claim to purity of descent, there are
only two races which enter largely into
thu composition of the people now occupying thu greater part of Europe and
the British colonies in thocaat ana west,
One in the Scandinavian-Teutonic or
Iinl'i-.ierin.iii, and tlio other the Collie;
tho former still existing on tho Baltic,
and tho latter to ho found on the west
coast of Ireland-, whero they preserve
thoir race and traditions In such perfect
purity that thuy  prohably differ but
iliu'htly from their imcr--Hto» uf a thouaand yonra ago, Hut thu res! uf Europe
has heen thu battle ground of the races
fur uciitutien, and they have now bu-
Comu H<< mixed up that it is almost im*
pnssil'lu to unravel tlm tangled skein.
The early Bottlers in France were Celtic hoyoml duubt, hut tho vory name of
France is German,innd tho population
hud already received a strong infusion
of   the  German  element from their
FrankUh conqueror, when  Hollo and
hia Normans took peaceable possession
of it-mult. It wiib from Normandy that
the curly K'utilur*- in New Franco -irin-
ci pally esine, its is immtdistinctly proved
by the faot thnt the patois of the Can-*
adiaii habitant is  precisely similar at
the present dny to thnt nf thu Normandy peasant, nnd  the hardy Norse
snilur wlium lm left j-ehind.   When
the Frenoh settler Inmbd on tlie shores
of Canada, hu was already partly Scandinavian and partly Teutonic, although
to   a large extent Celtic.   But ovon
since then lie has received » fresh admixture of thu Scandinavian element,
Tlie Gaspe district, for instance, derives its population largely from the
ClinniiL'l Islands, and the names of these
Islands--.(eraey, Guernsey, AldVtioy, ami
Nark—ato distinctly Nome   Along tlie
nhoroa of tlio St. Lawrence, ton, it ia a
constant occurrence to meet with French*
Canadian*, whose namea are character-
istieally' Scotch, and   who still   speak
French with a broad Scotch accent,  The
Kngllahuian, alao, ia a mixture of Sum-
dinavlan, Teuton, and Celt, ami, although
considerably loss Celtic than the Frenchman, it is merely a question of degree.
The one point whioh is quite clear ia this
—that if the I'Voiioli-Caimdlon wishes to
claim a-distinct nationality of hia own,
he 11 nint base his claim on language and
religion;   certainly   not  on race,—Th

Political Pointers.
Mr. Uobt, Dunsmuir hus received
a, requisition signed by 368 of his
constituents asking him to stand
for re-election as one of the representatives of Nanaimo district. It
is said that Mr, Dunsmuir did not
contemplate seeking re-election, but
he has intimated that he wil) not
refuse the request of so largo a
number of his constituents. With
such n strong requisition as a basis,
there docs not seem much doubt of
Mr. Dunsmuir's election. It is
stated m a fact that Mr. Galbraith
has decided not to be a candidate
at the coining flection. Mr. Gal
braith has been member for Kootenay since 1876, and acted as leader
of the opposition during the illness
of Mr. Beaven. It is claimed by
the Colonist that Mr, Galbrnith's
retirement is a sign of weakness on
the part of the opposition. This
may or may not be tho cose, but
Mr. tialbnith's retirement will undoubtedly weaken his party, especially if he is succeeded by Lieut.*
Col. Baker, who is out as a supporter of the government. Mr.
Galbraith did not need to retire to
demonstrate the weakness of the
opposition. Its record throughout
the whole parliament was a sufficient proof that it is both weak
and destitute of any policy.
that still, in the face of certain obloquy,
they will move like toy soldiers when
ordered to do so by the throe men who
now have the coolness to make ducks and
drakes of our interests because it pleases
them.
Prom tlie (iuardlun, Mar, 20:18711
We cannot trust ourselves to speak on
this subject, Tha-extraordinary gullibility of the people in this'portion of the
province passes all belief. (Being led by
such a government as that of Mr. Walkem).
Prom the Guardian, Apr. 3:ltt7t).
But we are not satisfied with acting
like asses in this respect, we must forsooth liave a graving dock, an institution
that might be contemplated with some
show of reason fifty years hence. If the
dock was completed to-morrow it would
not pay for the people who would be required to take charge of it, ami even
with all these disadvantages let us add
another—a vital one; the dock proposed
is in the wrong place; it should be at
Nanaimo or Bnrrard Inlet: if ever tho
Jock at Esquimalt is completed it will
he a severe strain ou the little revenue of
thc province to keep it open, * * *
Men of the Mainland! we ask how long
will you stand to be mulct in this impudent manner to support artificially a littlo
town like Victoria, because the majority
of your legislators are lot owners or residents of that place. Are you serfs that
you submit so meekly to be robbed ? or
bond-servants that you toil so hard to
support your self-constituted masters at
Victoria! What is tlie tie that hinds you
to these men ? Chnff.
From the Guardian, Apr. tt:187H.
It is now about nine months since Mr.
Walkem succeeded iu carrying through
the legislature one of those pugnacious
but ill-advised documents for which he
lias become famous, and may become in-
famous. * * * Mr. Walkem may
hare another opportunity of exhibiting
at Ottawa—possibly at London—his wonderful abilities us a dispatch writer—at
the public expense! But he wouldn't possess the advantage this time of Mr,
Sproat's brain's to draw upon. Must all
this bs? Cannot our government, with
its automaton majority, be induced, to
come down from its high aim. and
save the country.
We shall continue from time to
time to publish similar extracts for
the purpose of showing how perfectly valueless are. the opinions
expressed by the Guardian, and
with what wonderful facility it oan
changfe its tune when it suits its
own ends to do so.

Any person wishing to vote n%
the .lie), t Dominium election, which
cannot lie further off ttiun' next
year, ought to ascertain at once
whether his name is on the list for
the polling division in which he resides or not. A copy of the list
may he seen at any post office within the polling division, and persons
whose names are not found on the
list ihould at once notify the revising officer to that efiect. A blank
form of application has heen pre-
pared and may be obtained on application at a small cost. It is of
great importance that the lists
should be ae complete as possible,
and this can only be accomplished
with the assistance of the voters
themselves. In the east the duties
of revising officer are greatly simplified because the two political parties
take care that no available vote
shall be omitted from the list.- In
this province things are very different; There are no party organizations to fight over the lists, and the
whole burden of preparation und
revision falls upon the revising officer. Applications to bs placed on
the list must reach the revising
officer by the 21st ./una Let every
person entitled to a vote examine
the lists now issued aud see that
his name has not been omitted.

THI OVMOIM ON THE WAUUM CABINET.
The other day the Guardian announced with much satisfaction that
there was a rumor to the effect thut
Mr. Justice Walkem would come
down from the bench to re-enter
the political arena, nnd udded:
"Tliere is no man in the province so
lit to lie a prime minister." We ure
strongly inclined to doubt the rumor, but if it is true, how cun the
organ justify ita opinion of Mf.
Walkem and his administration now

On Ihe Old Tack.
We do not often nttempt to interrupt the nonsense that flows
from the peti of our local cotom-
porurv. To point ont ull his misrepresentations and correct all his
misstatements would quiokly become monotonous. Once iu a while,
however, we havo drawn attention
to this political curiosity, this organ
that changes its tune whenever
there looms up in the distance the
color of u shekel. As tho general
elections are expected to take place
some time this yenr, and there arc
many persons in tho country whose
opinions of circumstances and parties will lie largely formed frnm iu
formation obtnined through the
provincial press, we propose during
the summer to refer mote frequently
to the subject of politics, and to
keep a sort of lookout on our co-
temporary. This is one of the
freest countries under the sun, nnd
every person who has a political
opinion to express has a right to
express it with the utmost freedom.
But people have no right to misrepresent facts or to distort circumstances for political or any other
purposes. On Saturday one of those
characteristic articles on the pro
vincial secretary, in whioh facta are
distorted and fancies allowod to
play havoc with truth, appeared in
the local organ. The abuse heaped
upon the much-abused representative of the district may pass without comment because abuse from
such a source as the Guardian is
generally harmless. There aro two
statements contained in the article,
however, which we propose to correct because they may possibly mislead seme persons who are not
posted. Tlio provincial socretary
is charged with uselessly expending
$20,000 or J?25,000ion tho road
from this city to Vancouver—a road
whicli our cotemporary naively remarks "will soon be useless." This
money, the organ says, if judiciously
expended elsewhere in the district,
would have done much good. Now,
the amount spent on tho road botween this city and Vancouver is
not much more than hr.lf the sum
mentioned by the .organ, and it was
not taken out of tlio general district appropriation, at all, but was
obtained by the provincial secretary
over and above tbo sum granted
to the district. But is not this
road most urgently needed) With
lhe exception of the three milos between Victoria and Esquimalt, there
is not a road J in British Columbia
over which more trallic passes than
over the road between this city and
Vancouver. We are sure that the
views of the organ will not find
support from any number of poisons in this part of the district.
Tbo other point is our coteinpornry's
statement tlint the provincial secretary lias always opposed the projected railway betweon this city and
Washington Territory. This is an
inexcusable and unqualified falsehood. That, schemo has always had
the provincial secretary's most
hearty support, and on no occasion
did he ever vote or work against
it.      *•<; '•■    ' '    ■

A Rare Bird.—A strange bird was
shut at Burrard Inlet bn Saturday last,
as which was identified by Mr. Fannin
the little whito Egret or Snowy Heron.
This ia the first reeord of this bird having been in British Columbia, but Mr.
Fannin informs us that the result of
his observations for the laat four or
five years goes to prove that the distribution of species on the coast is
gradually shifting, and that within the
above period quite a change in this
respect hus taken place in British Columbia.   What is the cause 1
Discharged.— YeBterday Mr. Eck-
stein (for Mr. Bole) obtained a writ of
habeas corpus in the case of Louis
Lawson, charged with an attempt to
murder Newlands at Granite Creek last
fall. The case whb up before two assize courts, but was adjourned without
a hearing, and yesterday Lawson waa
discharged from custody. The shooting waB the result of recklessness on
the part of Lawson while under the
stimulating effects of liquor, and came
very near proving fatal. We hope the
young man has learned a lesion that
will never pass from his memory, and
that he will now start out in an entirely new life and une to which he may
look back with satisfaction.

Campbell, Edmund Ogle, and Geo. L,

I goods department of the establish-
'ment of Messrs. Cunningham & Co.
in this city, Mr. Ogle waB for years in
the establishment of Messrs, Trapp
Bros., of this city, and lately filled an
important position with Mr. D. Spencer, of Victoria. We hope these
three young men will meet with unqualified success in their new venture.
Police Court.—Yeaurday morning
the remanded e\se of Ah You, charged
with selling opium without a license,
came up before Capt. Pittendrigh.
The prisoner pleaded guilty, and waB
fined §100 and the prioo of a license,
9250, and costs. In delivering sentence Capt. Pittendrigh remarked that
in tho next case of the kind that came
before him and was proved he would
inflict the full fine allowed by law,
namely, 9500. He was determined to
root out the low opium dens where
all sorts of vioe was breeding. Ah
You paid the fine. A man named
Carmichael, sent to the lockup for
being drunk and disorderly on Mon
day night, was not found when called.
It seems he was allowed to escape
from custody!
Candidate for Cowichan.—8|r. T.
R. Figg, of Mayne island, announces
himself as a candidate at the coming
general election for the representation
of Cowichan district. As a rancher he
intends to make the farmers' interests
identical with his own. Ho favors the
existing school system and cause of
education generally, and in his address
fiays a high tribute to the prea-int
under of the governmont whose policy
he favors, Iu his address he says:
"As regards monopolies and all private
bills, unless they bo for tho purpose of
encouraging a new industry and strictly bound by a time limit, I consider
thom a hateful thing, likely to cause
much friction between labor and capital, and certainly moat injurious to
the highest and best interests of a new
or evon an old country."— Colonist.

Not Exactly.—The Vicioria Times
is not correct when it auya the govornment --eliminated'' lhe Chinese ro*
stt-iction clause from the agreement
for thu const ruction uf the New Westminster branch railway. There was
nevor any Chineso clause itt the agreement to eliminate. It is equally astray,
we boliove, in saying that the govern-
ment promised to insert a Chinese
clause in the agreement before it was
signed. The clause relating to the
New Westminster branch wss inserted
in tho nin cement at the lust moment,
and wo beliovo it was generally thought
that the Chineso clause in tho ngreo*
ment applied to both extension and
brunch. Wo never heard of any
promiae mnde to insert such a clause,
and wo doubt if tho Times is able to
maintain its assertion by credible evidence.

Sunday Work.—A large number of
men were engaged last Sunday in
throwing earth on the crib work for
the railway along the city front. It is
claimed hy the contractors that this
work could not well be avoided because the water was coming up rapidly
and there tttvs danger that the whole
erib work would be carried away. If
tho plea of necessity is well founded
we have no controversy with the eon
tractors on the question uf Sunday
labor, for "Necessity knows no law'.
But the people of this oity as a rule
have fairly observed the Sabbath day
as a day of rest, and they will offer a
firm resist ice to any attempt to interrupt a oustom so well founded and
protected by the laws of the land. We
are sure no one who has the welfare of
the uity at heart wishes either to hinder the progress of railway construction
or to see introduced the practice of
Sunday desecration, a practice fraught
with disastrous consequences both to
the individual and the state.
That Unfortunate Panthbr.—
Some weeks ago we received a long
poem from Mount Lehman entitled
the "Panther's Lament." The poem
was not published because it lacked
merit and was very long, and a brief
paragraph appeared in this paper giving the reason why it did not appear.
Shortly afterwards we received a letter
from Mr. Nicholson stating that he
had been accused uf writing the poem,
and wished us to exonerate him from
the accusation. This we did, as Mr.
Nicholson had nothing whatever to do
with the matter, so far as we know,
and tbe poem was not Bunt by him and
did not purport to come from him. On
Monday another letter comes from
Mount Lehman with the startlinir assertion that the people of that region
are all in a condition uf undue excitement and on tht verge of civil war because ofthe panther poem! The letter
states that the stories circulated concerning the authorship of this rejected
poem have produced a "great deal of
hard feeling," and   this feoling has
Cwn to such an extent as ''almost to
e caused blows between some who
used to be the best of friends." Our
correspondent makes the same suggestion that was made by Mr. Nicholson,
that the poem should be published,
with the name of the author, as the
only way of removing the misunderstandings and complications that have
arisen. This suggestion we cannot
adopt because (1) the manuscript of
the poem was long since consigned to
the waste basket, and (2) because the
Author sent his name in confidence and
did not wiBh it to be made publie.
We may say that there was nothing in
the poem reflecting upon any living
creature except the panther, and nothing that the author had any reason
to be ashamed of; and we must be permitted to express the opinion that
some of tho people about Mount Lehman aud Alder Grove are making a
very great ado about nothing.

Concert at CM!
Ulwtyick.
Although the general pic-nic and
sports of last Monday (Queen's birthday) had almost satisfied the people
with amuaement for awhile, yet s
goodly audience met at Hendersons
Hall on Friday evening, and it is not
saying too much to assert that those
who were fortunate enough to be present had tho pleaauru of listening to the
best musical entertainment cVer heard
in Chilliwhack. The couenrtwaa pro'
jooted and oarried out under a committeo of ladies for the benefit of the
new Methodist church now in course
of erection at Sumaa. Their time for
preparation was but short, and as the
several parties who contributed to the,
programme were in consequence somewhat hurried, the skill whioh they displayed in their several parts was the
more worthy of remark. Where all
did io well it would be invidious to
particularize, but the pianoforte accompaniments of Mrs. Gillivray deserve
especial note, and the execution of the
difficult pieces she gave was highly
creditable A. O. Wells, J. P., occupied the chair. Tbe programme consisted of songs by Miss Fannie Mc
Outohoon, Mrs. Hemlaw, Mr. Chas.
Evans, Mr. Jno. Maynard, Mrs. Chester Chadsey, Mrs. C. L. Street, and
Mr, Hunter Henderson; instrumental
music by Mrs. McGillivray, Mrs,
Street, Miss Gussie Chadsey, Miss
Gertie Kipp, Miss Kate McGillivray,
Master Louis Chadsey, nnd Master
George Ashwell; a quintette by Mrs.
Chester Chadsey, Mrs. Hemlaw, Miss
Fannie MeCutcheon, and Mr. Jno.
Maynard; and a glue. The net proceeds amounted to 930.—Com.
St. Mary's Mission.
(CorrcH-- juilence of the Columbian.)
On the 24th of May, white strolling
about in this pleasant vicinity, I came
in sight of a beautiful grove, rendered
doubly so by the presence of bright
nnd happy faces, nil apparently enjoying themselves to the utmost, some
swinging, some engaged in a quiet
tete-a-tete on thu shady benches, others strolling about seeming to take no
note of their surroundings, being all
absorbed in themselves, while others
were sitting forth the necessaries of
lifu upon spacious ctothi spread uudur
the leafy branches. While contemplating this beautiful pioture from my
position among the treea my reverie
was suddenly broken iu upon by a
bright-i-yeil little fellow wh" exclaimed, "Plense to give me a swing.'' I
soon learned, thnt thin was a pic-nic
held uudur thu auspices of the St.
Mary's Miosion Sabbath School: und
on my enquiring where so many children slid young folks came from-for I
had only seen two or three scattering
houses in the whole place-1 was told
that most of them came from Ferndale,
a beautiful valley a little way baok
from the river, and which has only
boon Buttled up this summer. After
the baskets had been relieved of most
uf their contents we were agreeably
entertained fur at.me time with recitations aud singing, some nf the little
ones show ing groat aptness and ability.
Aftor spending a very pleasant after-
noon tho picnic broke up with singing
"Ood save the Queen." I would iny
to the people there that if it had been
more widely known they would have
had a crowd that would have done credit tu some nf oar oities.
A lady met two lovely little girls of
about- the same sise and apparently
the same age. ''Good morning, little
girls. Are you twins?" Tlie brown-
headed ouo turned indignantly, and
replied: "No'm; we're bofegirla."
Tale Assizes.
(Before Hon. Mr. Justice MoCrelffliU)
May 26.—Ah Ching, tho Chinaman
accused of assaulting Mrs. Bulger below Hope on the lOLli March, was
tried and found guilty. Ho wan identified both by Mrs. Bulper and some
Indians, Mr. Eberts for the crown;
Mr. Wilson for the prisoner. Sentenced to imprison ment for life.
* MAV 28.—Wm. Yates, jun., waa
charged with stealing a registered letter
from Hope post office, containing 9160.
The postmaster stated that he bad left
the lotter on sume books in thu office,
and it had disappeared. A fuw days
afterwards the prisoner wns found with
one of thu stolen notes. Hu wan arrested and a search made of himself
and premises revealed nothing. The
prisoner's father testified that he gave
his son two @20 notes nnd a S10 note
shortly after the robbery. The
jury found a verdict of not guilty.
Mr. Eberts for the crown; Mr. Walls
for prisoner. The case ngainst Charley
Suet, accused of murdering a Chinaman near Spence's Bridge in 188!1,
occupied nearly the whole day. Tlie
facts of the caso have already been
made known in connection witli the
preliminary examinations at this city.
The jury retired at midnight, aud in
twu hours found a verdict of guilty.
Suet was sentenced to death. Messrs.
Eberts and Bole for the crown; Mr.
Atkinson (Corbould, McColl &, Atkinson) for prisoner.

total at the close of the week on Saturday was officially returned at 128,077.
The numbers on Wednesdny were 12,*
137, and on Friday 21,076. Thu first
Wednesday at the Inventions oxhibi-
ion last year was only 8,243, and the
largest previous first Wednesday was
the Fisheries exhibition, 9,198. The
first week of the Fisheries hud tho
benefit of Whit-Monday, and the total
ran up to 132,949. The total fur the
four days ending on Friday night was
94,000, and Saturday was a very full
day, for which 25,000 may bo taken in
round numbers, so that thia year's success will about equal thu Fisheries
without thu help of the Whit holidny,
whieh will not occur until the middle
of June.
Maxwell's confession.
St. Louis, May 26.—Tho prosecution to-day introduced McCuIlougli,
who was himself arrested and placed
iu the same cell. "Maxwell thought
I belonged to a notorious gang of
forgers, and was in a bad fix. I told
him if he had a chance nt an alibi I
wuuld prove it. Ho asked how, nml I
said by my people. He snid if ho had
a witness who would testify right he
wonld beat the state. I asked him
how. Ho said if 1 could tind a witness
that oould testify that he hnd so much
money in Boston he could yet free.
I asked him how much money, and hu
Baid $700 or $800. I told him I would
try to get some of my poople (a gang
of forgers) to do him this favor to testify for htm, and I nsked him to tell
me about his caso."

London, May 28.—The house of commons was crowded this evening. Mr,
Gladstone, replying to the question by
Sir Michael Hicks Beach, conservative,
said that the government considered its
duty, nfter tho second reading of the
home rule hill, uot to oak the Iiouse to go
into committee on the measure, but to
adopt one of the measures which he (Mr,
Gladstone) described at the liberal meeting yesterday. The government, he said,

the present sension, and to advise the
Queen to cause an early reassembling of
parliament, at which the bill would be
introduced. Ke was unable at that moment to speak more positively,

Crash Rapids, Mich., May 28.—At

was heard in the Valley City mill. On
investigation it proved to be the giving
way of over-laden floors. ■. The whole
interior ofthe huge structure fell into
the basement, a large portion of its contents was swept away by the mill race
out iuto the Grand river, leaving the
lofty mill like an empty egg shell. There
were stored in ths immense bins on tbe
second, third and fourth stories of the
mills between twenty thousand bushels
of wheat and about thirty tons of bran,
all weighing over five hundred tons. In
the western portion of the building was
the milling machinery of the most improved ana costly styles. The damage
is estimated at 8100,000.

I)itUMM0*ND™CUMMINO8.-In this city
oil tit? 1st Inst., by the Rov. Fathor
MnOnlPken, at the rusldeiiro of the
irldfl'-t pnrenth, ltobert V, Drummond,
of Toronto, Out, and Mary A.ttmv
mllU-nof ttiliclty.     .
Speaking of the great central exhibi-
bition opened at Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on the
gronnos cannot escape the attention of
uie most casual and careless observer, is
the pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company. This is a separate building but a
little distance from the south east of the
Main Building. This pavilion most be
about 50 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
roiled passageway all around it extra,. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
folly one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to all In broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that company, ud
that Joseph Ruse, of 68 King-street
West, represents ihe company. Inside
no pains have been spared to make it at*
tractive i and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No one should visit the Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he will find a little paradise
of music. Here are decorations, baud-
some pictures of the Dominion factory
and of tbe present store room of Hr.
Ruse, and above all, pianos and organs
of the most artistic and unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to tho
J-enius and skill of our Canadian tniinu*
acturers. Pianos and organs of every
style and artistic design are found hers
—a parlor grand, squares, aud uprights
of rpM-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trJduUfrfi, ebouyi and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, feces the visitor at the extreme
end as ne enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every style and de
sign to suit the purchaser. The Com*
pany also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit the fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Oennapy. announcing that at a Grand
N»tional Exhibition held then the Company bad jost carried off the fint prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is certainly remarkable, though
when the rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not ao remarkable as at firat might seem,
The Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
srtonal inspection and visit.
Iir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized the high compliment he paid
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
at the opening of the London Fair. In
his addreu from the platform of tlie
Art Oallerv, speaking of the great impe
tus Exhibitions gave to uwy industry-
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at .the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited as an illustration of the wonderful progress this
Country is making, the success of the
Dominion Orj-an and I'iano Company
there. Re said that thin Company {the
Dominion Organ uad Piano Company)
had not only tnkco thc highest award
thero, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, thc very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly uelebratcd
for their skit! mid acquirements in musical knowledge, Imt these judges, whu
comprised «>-iiii> of tlieir ablest nnd hest
musicians, bad declared further that the
instruments of this company were siipc*
rinr to any they had over seen, heard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from auch a source, in addition to their
auccets at this Exhibition, thc Company
ought to feel content.

The confederation Life.
The annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify tbe ecomiums which
Uie shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, tbe working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point attesting the soundness of lhe finances of
the Company is tlie fact that tke interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims--which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The uss ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and thu tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of #282,190
over liabilities and capital combined.
Thc increase in the assets in the last year
was $260,390. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
thc Company, tlii—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, uu*
wise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing uew business."

of adverse but unfounded reports us
tu the condition of this vi*bso1, a board
of trade survey upon her was culled
by them. It has just been completed,
and was of searching description as to
hull, machinery and equipments. They
state that the vessol has completely
stood this severe test. They add that
the surveyors Imve reported to tho
board of trade their entire satisfaction
with her seaworthiness, and that a formal board of trade declaration has
been issued accordingly. She is now
preparing for sea and is intended to
Bteam round from Milford Haven to
Liverpool in time for the Queen's
opening of the Maritime Exhibition
on May llth next. She will be exhibited by Messrs. Lewis -fe Co. of

Signals by Snn Flashes.
General Miles has ordered Second
Lieutenant Alvarado M. Fuller, Second Cavalry, to report to him to take
charge of all the heliograph ic signaling
in the hostile sectiou ui Aijixomi and
New Mexico. Already Lieutenant
Fuller has in nperat.--ij.itat ions from
Fort Bowie to the Chiricahua mountains, and souu stations will be in
operation in tho Mule ai;d Dragoon
mountains and down to the Mexican
Line, 'these -itatioim rniu*e from twenty
to fifty miles apart,, and eommmiicaiu
with all tlie camps, and messages arc
sent by sun dashes at nearly the same
speed and with the same code as the
telegraph. The instruments -now in
use are very large, averaging over
seventy-five square inches, and are
made from Lieutenant Fuller's models
and under his direction at Fort Bowie,
\he flashes, even ut twenty-five miles,
require to be read with smoked glasses.
Jt is understood that General Miles
will place these stations upun all the
prominent peaks, and be enabled
thereby tu quickly cummunicute the
movements of any of the hostiles.
Such means nf communication have
long been needed here, whero the telegraph is so fur distant from the scene

route for South America, Bailing from
Portland on the following Monday via

the county commissioners und resigned
bis office. Tyler's sudden departure is
due to hii being largely in debt, the
result of dissolute habits and misfortunes, and being pressed by creditors
and seeing no way out uf the hole intu
whioh he had blundered, he gave way
to discouragement and fled. His debts
are said to aggregate between threo
and four thousand dollars. While in
Portland he informed, a, gentleman of
this city that it wag, hia intention to
begin life anew w, South America,
where he had friends engaged in the
oatt!s business, aud as soon m he made
money would pay up all debts Ho was
forced to leave behind. With his wifo

The Great Tower of Paris.
The minister of commerce has decided, subject to the approval of scientific men -and specialists, to erect,
either at the entrance or at some other
part of the exhibition, the gigantic
metallic tower invented by M. Eiffel,
the mechanical engineer. It will be
300 meters in height, and entirely constructed of iron. It will rest on five
{nllsrs, forming four immense arcades,
ofty enough to exceed in height tho
towers of Notre Dame.
On the summit of the tower will be
erected an electric lighthouse, and a,
terrace to which visitors will be admit-'
ted. The form of, the erection is
specially adapted1 to'givVit stability in
high winds. ' The oscillation at thc
top, under the influence of the most
severe storm, wiU not exoeed 75 centimeters. On a first platform, at a
height of 70 meters, that is to say 10
' meters higher than the towers uf Notre
Dame, there will be a gallery of glass,
which may be used as a cafe or restau
rant. A lift will take, visitors to the
summit. -Die-expense of construction
is estimated at from D,000,000f to
5,500,000f. M. Eiffel will provide
4,000,000, and tho state will give what
remains as a contribution. M. KillVI,
in order to covet hia expenses, asks the
right to receivo the price of -admission
into tho tower, nnd the privilege "f
keeping up and drawing profits from
the building for some tiinu after tho
close of the exhibition.
The tower is expected, besides forming a great attraction, to render Important services to science. Mtiteo*ilr.<. Wl

Ko, (-touty$ for Ihe Presidency.
■''Mamma," said a little Fifth ward
boy lugubriously the othor duy, »s Inlaid down a volume of biugi-uphicul
sketches uf ths presidents. "1 don't
bsliere I'll ever be a president. I
ain't got the chance; I wasn't brunt-;
up right."
"Why, ohild, tm have the same
chance thst other little bovs have."
"No, I ain't; I wasn't born iu a log
tjabin, nor I ain't drove a team on thu
canal, nor had to read the spellin'
book by the light of a pine knot, nor
had to iplit rails, hor nothftl'likiuhe
nit of the boys wbo got there. I tell
yon, mother. I'm handicapped on this
presidential business."
Front the stress'laid on the hard;
ships endured by some ot the presr-
dents whip boys, It is not strange that
the juvenile mind should draw such a
deduction.—Kt.
Sometimes uluwly-liealihy wounds,
with feeble granulations, ure made to
increase their activity in the direction
of cicatrisation by transplanting minute
fragments of epidermal tissue containing some of tho cells of tho rets Mair
pighi't on the healing surface. O. Petersen has successfully used the skin
from the back of a frog. The slowly-
cicatming wound was situated on the
back of the neok of a man, and hud
resulted from excision of a malignant
pustule. A piece of frog's skin tho
she of tho thumb-nail wob washed in a
2 per cent, solution and placed upon
blotting-paper, when it was divided
into two. The gtafts were applied, to
the wound so that the blotting-paper
was interposed between them and thc
fixiug'pbster. Two days after the
transplantation both fragments of epidermis were found to bo adherent.
Two days later n fresh grafting wns
made; the former grafts had become
roseate. In a furthor period uf forty-
eight hours tho pigmentation uf the
grafts hud almost disappeared. Tho
cicatrix resulting after taia treatment
was found to be of groat softness uud
elasticity. Frog's skin as grafts has
beun recently employed at some of tho
London hospitals.--Zowfoit Lancet.
All About Glycerine.
, The consumption of glycerine for
medicinal fur medicinal purposes, arts
and manufactures haa greatly increoad
iu the past few years. It is the byproduct of the manufacture of candles.
Tallow or other animal or vegetable
fats am saponified, with the addition
of water, under heat and » high steum
pressure, in closed tanks. The neutral
fats separate into fatty acids and glycerine thuB formod is concentrated and
sold to refiners. Some bf the latter,
in order to cheapen the process of refining, bleach their half-refined product by means uf vegetable or animal
charcoal. Tula absorbs the color and
ulso some of the acids still in the glycerine, rendering it for a short time inodorous and almost colorless; but the
seeds of decomposition are not removed, and in time the acids still contained
in the glycerine oxydize, and the glycerine becomes "off color." Properly
it sbould be distilled until the lust
trace of impurities is removed, when
the glycerine becomes chemically pure,
inodorous and culorless.
Whon the concentrated glycerin* ta
applied undiluted to a chappy or
ulcerated surface, it produces a burning sensation, which to some persona
is almost unbearable. The reason is
that glycerine has a strong affinity for
moisture; it takes it frnm tho skin, and
thus gives rise to the binning sensation. If a small quantity of water is
added to the glycerine beforo it is applied, this unpleasant effect will be observed but little, if at all.

her brother, aB ho drew near, "It is bo

Lift me up a little, please,"
Tenderly the boy raised his fragile
sister to a sitting posture and moistened her parched lips with water. For
an instant the girl revived, but soon
relapsed into unconsciousness, Tho
boy thought her dead and started to
summon a neighbor, but a plaintive
voice caused him to halt. His sister
was speaking faintly,
"I juat saw a beautiful angel," Bho
said, "It wub mother, and she wore
a crown, too. Yes"—-but her mind
wandered for a moment. "Oh, I'm bo
cold! Frankie, bring Prinoe (the family dog) and place him on my feet to
keep them warm."
The boy did so.
