An artiols in liar pert Weeky, re
forrlhg to the late trouble among
the Ute Indians, concludes as follows- ' "This incident is a characteristic addition to Die shameful record
of our treatment of the Indians.
We are ven fluent it denunciation
» Mack oaupter which narrates our
conduct towardi the Indians. From
the begUaina; we haye taaght tlnmi
to distrust the white man, while
they have shown entire nadinesato
treat him aa a friend when he has
shown himielf to be honest and
friendly."
It is, unfortunately, uot. generally known that a finger laid upon an
oar, or the gunwale of aa overturning boat, or a board, or almost any
floating objeet, will sustain Uie human body in calm water. Persons
who have been properly taught, and
have acquired the habit of acting
with self possession in 'the' water
when they an upaet, do not attempt
to climb upon the overturned boat,
but limply take hold of it and quietly support themselves. A boat
half filled with water, or completely, overturned, will support as many
persons as can get their hands upon
the gunwale, if they behave quietly:
In esse of accident, a person who
understands and acta in accordance
with than facts would stand a hatter chance of being saved, even. if
be were a poor swimmer, than an
expert swimmer would, have who
should, lose his presence o( mind.—

Ihe main proposition of the manifesto of the Comte de Paris is that
the monarchy should be restored to
France : with himself aa King.
After that oome fonr other leading
proposals. The government,, the
Comte says, must be stronger than
in the past, and certain modifications are therfore necessary in iti-
machinery. He proposes that the
senate shall be elective . and have
equal authority with the chamber
of deputies; that he as king shall
govern lonjoiutly with these, two
bodies, thus having the casting vote
between them; that he and the chambers shall control the taxation and expenditure; and that the clergy shall
be guaranteed "the respect whioh is
their due for the accomplishment of
of their mission," meaning the n
call of the expelled monks. The
Oomte would thus make himself as
tbe Chief Executive, "the supreme
guardian of that law before which
all an equal," whioh ia equivalent
to laying that he wishes to be virtually an autocrat—Mail
The people of Esquimalt have reason to be proud of their pretty town
which has just been selected as the
terminus of the Canadian Pacific
Railway's Ohina steamers. The
Port Augusta cleared from Yokohama on the 14th inst. for Esquimalt The town should lie en/ete
%n the arrival of the first steamship
to umrkits sense of the victory
w)iich J^iis lieen obtained over prejudice and misreprmentatioii. It ia
considered doubtful if the China
boats will go beyond Esquimau during the winter months. Arrange,
uients bare been made for transporting the oriental passengers and thoir
baggage swiftly to Victoria immediately after the arrival of the steamer*. It is by.no means improbable
that the erection of a tint-class
hotel will be proceeded with next
spring at Esquimalt.— Colonist.
This ii clearly a case of whistling to
keep one's courage up. There is as
much probability of the Ohina steamships ending their  voyage  at  Es
quimalt  as  of  their reaching the
moon.

The crowd outside the building, where
the meeting waa held, nude an attack
upon the rooms of the Protestant

Wiknifeo, Sept. 24. —X public
meeting will shortly be held to agitate
a subscription nf money by the people
of the province in sums large enough
to push to completion, the Red River
road. If the money can be raised it
is the intention of the people to ignore
the injunctions granted, and mandate!
of' the court, to prevent work. The

in the province at present; it is reported that British troops will shortly be

THE QUEENS PROPOSED VISIT.
Toronto, Sept 23.—A Globe cable
despatch says: Some jonrnala nominating ou the reported intention of the
Qneen to visit Canada urge that a Royal
visit to the Dominion would be of great
benefit to the throne and empire. A visit
to Oanada however necessitates visits to
other Colonies, and this is" impossible for
the Queen to make., It Is suggested
however that the Prince of Wales might
with great advantage endeavor to find
aa opportunity to visit Canada and tho
other Colonies. I am personally aware
that the prince hss long taken a keen interest in tho progress bf the Dominion.
Ho hu at his own request been supplied
with the best available mapa of Ike Dominion, photograph, of Canadian scenery
and other information, and did state that
ii exigencies would permit he would
§ladly undertake a Colonial tour.   The
onbt however Is expressed whether it is
possible for him to do so.

Saturday Eveulai, Sept. ti, 18SJ.
Comparisons are said to be odious,
but sometimes they are profitable
nevertheless. A few days ago Mr.
H. 0. Beaton, agent-general for British Columbia in London, was interviewed by a representative of tho
Victoria Times. Mr. Bcoton has
been visiting the province for sonic
weeks, after an absence of ten years,
and in the published interview he
gives some of his impressions. Re*
ferring to the progress made, he
says: "In the city of Victoria, excepting in James Bay and in the
northwest end of the city, in the
Work estate principally, there has
uot been that marked improvement
which he was led to expect he would
find. To t certain extent this was
disappointing." Now, wo suppose
Mr. Beeton's expectations wore based
upon reports he had road in Victoria
newspapers respecting the "phenom-
inal" development of that city. If
he took these reports as entirely reliable, doubtless he would be disappointed. The Victoria press has
been booming the capital for all it
is worth, and has continued to nuke
it appear as the terminus of both
the 0. P. R. snd the China steamers. Mr. Becton found neither railway nor steamer there, and discovered also that the great local development had been considerably exaggerated. Referring to our own city,
Mr. Boston said: "New Westminster has increased steadily, keeling

fact Westminster seems to OefSJS
only place in the provijrfwhose
development came
ton's expectations.
One often hears the remark that
the world is growing. worse, and
without taking time to consider, the
expression is very generally accepted as true. In a late monthly
magazine Sir E. V. Ducane has produced some interesting and instructive statistics on this subject. The
article in which these statistics occur is one of many contributions to
the jubilee literature of this jubilee
year. The writer has mnde a careful comparison of the criminal
statistics of England for the fifty
years ending with 1887, and he
certainly makes a showing that
ought to be highly satisfactory to all
who are interested in reform. The
number of inmates of convict prisons has fallen to one-fifth of what
it was in 1837, whereas the population has about doubled. In 1837
there were 00,000 convicts under
sentence; in July last the number
under sentence of penal servitude
waa only 7,414, and with those who
had been released conditionally,
but were still under police supervision, the whole number is less than
10,000. There has also been a decrease in the numj»r of persons
who suffer capital punishment The
writer points out what seems to
him some of the principal causes of
this improvement, among which are
the spread of education, increased
efficiency of the police force, and
the work of reformatories. He
might have added the great interest
taken of late years by many good
people in instructing the criminal
classes and endeavoring to stimulate
them to self-respect and to aspire to
a better life. The reform of prisoners is now engaging much attention, and a very great work ia being
accomplished in this way.
A gigantic fraud has just
come to light in connection with
Chinese immigration to San Francisco. In May and June last it was
noticed that the numbers of Chinamen arriving at San Francisco from
Hong Kong were excessively large,
one steamer having 1,100 Ohinese
on board, Nearly all of these people brought return certificates, and
they were evidently persons who
had been in California before. Lately
it has been observed that an unusually large number of Chinamen were
leaving San Francisco for the celestial empire, and officials were somewhat puttied to find an explanation
of thia reaction. The explanation
hu now appeared. It seems thst a
syndicate of Chinamen ubout Hong
Kong conceived the idea that they
might make a little capital out of the
credulity of their countrymen. They
first went to the steamship headquarters and paid for all tlie Chinese
Then they circulated a story far
and wide to the effect that after
the "middle months" of tho year no
return certificates would be recognized in the United States.    Large
numbers of Chinamen who had valuable interests in the United States,
and  were visiting the fatherland,
became alarmed at these reports and
rushed te Hong Kong to secure im
mediate passage to San Franoisco.
But at the steiroship's office they
were told thst the whole ship had
been engeged.     The  ■'syndicate"
would then get hold of the alarmed
Chinamen and offer to secure them
a passage for $75 or more—125 or
more of an Advance on the price
they had paid!   The arrangement
worked like » charm.    On the City
of Peking's 1,100 Chinese the syndicate made over $27,000.   When
the Chinese readied San Francisco,
and found that there was no truth
in the rumor about the certificates,
many of them concluded to return
to Ohina and complete their business: hence the taije numbers now
going out from San Francisco.
Tho following strong words are
taken from an intorview with Terence
V. Powderly published in the New
York Herald:
" Should I leave the office of Muslor
Workman to-day I would devote myself to literary work in the interest of
at least two great questions in tho order—education  and  temperance.    I
would require every man, woman and
child to learn to resd, write and cipher.
That so many working people do not
understand even these three rudimentary branches of learning is a shame
and a disgrace,   But there is no disgrace deeper and moro marked than
the disgrace that hovers around the
drunkard.   They impose upon us in
the order.   They bring on trouble between employers and honest working-
men.   They go to work drunk, are
discharged, and sobering up, they appear before their assemblies and present their grievances.   But one side is
heard, and the complainant seems to
be a  much-abused   man.     Are  we
justified in keeping such iinpostcrs
with uil   Can we excuse men who
wilfully neglect their duty as employees and as wilfully delude their
brother workmen?  Yet I myself am
called upon frequently to take a hand
in the settlement cf lsbor troubles attributable to this cause.   Recently I
had occasion to interfere in a dispute
of large proportions, wherein the hands
sought to sustain one of their numbers
who  had been discharged.   He had
represented himself si a badly-treated
man, and had so worked upon the feelings of his fellows that they supported
him at a sacrifice of work and pay.
What did he do to cause n discharge?
He went to the workshop drunk.   Be
hung his hat up in a strange place, and
it fell down into a tub of valuable liquid, spoiling it.   Was that  a good
case to make a light on?  I think hot."
While Mr. Powderly was speaking a
drunken man tottered  down  on  the
other side of the street and passed by
the door of a house in which a small
watch dog sat  up-right.    " Look,"
•aid he, " there is a good case in point.
A strong, able bodied man, with God-
given senses, and a dog, with brute instincts.   Which is the more valuable
at thii time?  I say the dog.   Lacking
human   intelligence,   he sits  there
guarding the house.   He is watchful
of his own safety and of tho safety of
muoh valuable property.   He is alert
and ready to protect both.   The man
il not only bereft of his senses, but lie
could not watch anything; he could not
even protect himself if he tried.   His
intellectual or physical attainmenta
would not at this time avail hiin anything against the dog.
"As I have said before, tho rum
habit is one of our greatest enemies,
and till we get it under control we will
have an uphill struggle to sustain our
principles. I deny that I am an autocrat, but in one thing I wish to be.
If my word should bo law there would
be no more intemperance, nnd with
no intemperance there would ijoon bo
fewer labor troubles."

What Prohibition Can Accomplish.
It is now said that the Panama
Canal will coat, when completed,
9600,000,000, or five times as much as
the original estimate. Even at this
enormous expense, however, the American nation could build a cuuple of
Panama Canals every year out of the
money which is now worse than wasted
on liquors. Give us genuine prohibition, and there is almost nothing this
country cannot do in tho way of paying out money almost without feeling
it. The man who spends nn average
of only twenty cents a day for liquor
for himself and family, thinks it a
very small msttcr; but if 5,000,000
of men spend twenty cents ench, that
is 81,000,000 a day, or 8305,000,000 a
year spent for unwholesome drink, by
moderate drinkers alone, without saying anything about those who drink
to excess. The only reason why a
simple sum like this does not at once
arrest attention and impress upon the
publio conscience the injury done to
general commerce by the liquor truffle,
is that while the single payment of
twenty cents seems insignificant the
aggregate cost is so enormous as to bo
outside the rango of ordinary comprehension.
Prohibition and Baseball.
It appears that in competitive bull-
playing, as in rowing and other athletic performances, the best achievements
are possible to those only who abstain
from intoxicants. The New York
TVibuiie, in a recent uotc ou tho subject of ball-playing, says: "Prohibition is undoubtedly practiced in baseball to a larger extent than tho averago
citizen believes. A. O. Spalding, ths
ruler of the Chicago club, has done
moro to drive drunkenness from the
baseball rank and file thou any othor
baseball director in the country. * * *
Spalding threatened either to scatter
drunkenness from the ranks of his
players or break up his olub. A glance
at the record the Chicago olub is making at present will show that he has
succeeded in doing the former." A
legitimate inference is, of course, that
if abstinence from intoxicants is neces-
snry for the highest degree nf elDciency
on the part of athletes, it is also to be
commended for others.
Canon Wilberlorce, after visiting
Maine and sojourning in Portland as
the guest of Hon. Nesl D'W, Is ropnrl
ed as saying iu Buslon: "If any man
says that prohibition does not proliilrit
in Maine, lie lies—under a mistake."

'I'll. Wulcb sf Louis XVI.
Th? San Francisco Chronicle describes
lie returrntu America, altera very Oilj'S-
•. v ol u lventures, extending ovor more
uim a century, of a watch which was
vurri hy l-ouis XVI., when a prisoner in
'.lie Ttrmjile. Bought originally In London, hy tltmjnmin Franklin, and given by
him to Lru'iiyette, it was by him In turn
presenter! tithe King, as a souvenir of
Ilia A inr-ru'iin war. Louis, who, as i
irliille.l ifierrhaiiie, was a judge of sound
w.Trc'iniiKliiir, constantly wore it; ami ul
his drai.li it became the property of ."'nn
son, tlie executioner. After the I'wtom
linn the hoha of Sanson (who died in
liiKI) gavo the wiitch to Louis XVIII.,
who gave it toa'riond, from whose hands
it finally came Into the possession of n
hric-a-hrac dealer. In 1870 a niillionniic
Onu Franciscan heard that the relic van
in the market; and sent a dealer to roils
on purposir to buy it. The dealer s ltr.
cccdo.l ill his ohjoct, obtained the wittoh
for no more than £110. and returned to
America with liis nrizer. Before, however,
lm gut hack to California, his employer,
Mr. l'lorho, had boen ruined, and liu I
committed suicide. No one could lie
found to piy the price demanded for Hie
treasure, and it remained in the posaw
lion ol tho dealer till his death. His
widow has now found a new millionaiiv
to buy it at her price. Inside the mil.-
esse there aro engraved the names ol
Franklin and Lafayette, and the onused
"Ln" (the monogram of Louis) with throe
fleur-de-lys underneath.

The'late Leopold von Kaake, thou»li
an indefatigable student, waa fond of going out into society, where his high spirits and conversational powere rendered
him welcome. It is on record that beine
once invited to lunch with the King of
the Belgians, he made himself so ir.-ree
ablo at table that the party remained
seated, listening to his talk, till they were
tol I thlt il wns time to dress for dinner.
Vmi tiiinke, who carried on his literary
work with inflexible, regularity, never al-
lurvud liimielf to be interfered with by
tiirriMpniiilenue. In the course ol one of
his visits to England lie expressed himself strongly on this head to a friend who
was in the liahit of devoting a couple of
hours daily to letter-writing. "IJolng
that amount of composition, he said,
"regularly and carefully every day, you
might produce two good octavo volumes
in the year." Athtmnini.

That frogs have a formidable enemy in
Hi i common mouse is evidenced by the
11 lowing incident. Mr. W. August Carter, of South Norwood, England, states
that he observed, a short time since, several mice pursuing some frogs in a shed
whieh was overrun with these reptiles.
The alacrity of the latter, however, rondure I tlio attacks of the mice futile for u
considerable period. Again and again
llie frogs escaped from tho clutches of
their foes, but only to be recaptured, severely shaken, and bitten. The energy
put forth by these reptiles was so great
that they actually swayed their captors to
an I fro m their efforts to wrest thein-
selves from their grasp. At length the
wiiiiii .Is inlllrted upon them rendered the
(ni{s inrrapalile of further resistance, and
■ they were easily overpowered by the
mic', which devoured a certain part of

Last year the output of timber and fuel
In the Bengal forests considerably decreased i but the wonder seems to be that
so much timber is annually cut in the
liengul Forests, seeing that last year no
fewer than one hundred and sixteen
wim Irutters were killed by tlgora, and
several ntimi were abandoned in consequence of the number of the men carried
away from them by tigers. From one
para on the Bhudder rivor no leas than
seventeen woodcutters were carried away,
and the remainder, as was not unnatural,
lost faith inrthV fcklr who dwelt there
apecially to protect them by religious observances against the tigers, and deserted.
Shooting In the dense jungle of the 8un-
derbunds Is extremely difficult, and it is
therefore not surprising to hear that only
fifteen full-grown tigers, and one tiger-cub
wero killed during ihe year.
The Word of God seems to be having a
free course among the Jaws at Vienna.
The New Testament, translated into Hebrew by the late Rev. J. Salkinson, missionary among the Jews of Vienna, ofthe
British Jews Society here, hat been reprinted in a second edition of 1110,000.
Of this number, 100,000have been bought
by one generous Scotch donor who requested that they might be distributed
gratis among Hebrew-reading Jews all
ovor the Continent. Copies have been
sent to 300 rabbis, many of whom have
undertaken to circulate ths Scriptures
among their co-religionists, What- the
countries of Europe want is tha free circulation of the Wonl of Ood; and it is
to make known lta truths, especially
among the young, that the Continental
Million of tne Sunday School Union exists.

A False Alarm.---Early this morning a Siwash from the B, A, P. Co.
reported to Mr. P. McTiernan, Indian
agent, that an Indian was lying in his
shanty, near the cannery, siok with
the small-pox. This news naturally
alarmed Mr. McTiernan who, accompanied by Dr. Trow, without a moment's loss of time went over to investigate tlie matter. Tho doctor's examination proved that the case was typhoid fever, and not small-pox, as was at
first reported. Boforo leaving, Dr.
Trow attended professionally to the
sick man nnd loft directions and medicine for his proper treatment.

-The walls of a brick cottage are
about completed in North Park street,
the entire work upon whieh has been
done by Chinese mochinics—two
bricklayers snd a carpenter. Thus, in

supplanting the Saxon in every avenue
of life; and it becomes only a question
of time when our law, our physic and
our religion will be prescribed by tho

In a few more years Chinese bricklayers attended by white hod-carriers

The Island Railway. — Senator
Leland Stamford, Mr. Chas. Crocker,
and Mr. Towne, who is a eivil engineer and manager nf the great transcontinental railway system in which
these gentlemen are interested, havo
been making a thorough investigation
of the Esquimalt & Nanaimo Railway.
They were accompanied hy Hon. Robt.
Dunsmuir, president of the road, and
Mr. J. L. Hunter, C. E-, under whose
direction It was constructed. We learn
from the Times that all expressed
themselves well pleased with the road,
and Mr. Towne, whoso practical experience makes his opinion very valuable, said It was "equal to tne beet
line on the coast, and superior to a
large majority of those claimed to be
in every respect first-class in the east."
..' News and News,—Once in a while
our esteemed cotemporary of the Guardian strikes a nail exactly on thu
head. In its issue of this morning it
calls attention to the meagre and profoundly Unimportant character of the
Westminster items dished up each day
by the Vancouver Netes. It might at
the same time hav* pointed out how
often these items become misleading
because of their inaocuraoy. With
respect to the telegrams, it may also
be noted that noarly all the despatches
of any intorest which appoar in the
New* may be found In the Columbian
of the previous evening. Lot any.
person who takes both papers compare
them a few times, and this fact will bo
sufficiently apparent. Some days ago
the New* suggested, in a very unfriendly spirit, that the Columbian
ought to put a littlo more "smartness"

The Siwashes held a jubilee celebration last night, at the east end of Front
street, and made the midnight hour as
cheerful and lively, for the' residents
of that portion of the town, si it usually iB at high noon. Singing, howling,
dancing, drinking and fighting were
the principal amusements entered into
by the company, who seemed to vie
with each other in trying to create the
Sreateat disturbance. While Frank
be, a Lilooet brave, was enjoying a 5-
round contest with Crooked Peter, the
local champion, the police dropped in
on the play, whioh sort oMhrow s chill
over tho whole proceeding*. Crooked
Peter made off at lightning speed aud
escaped, but Frank Joe, having imbibed a littlo too much distilled lightning, fell an easy prey to the officers,
who lost no time in placing him in the
scucum houso. With the arrival ofthe
police tho bottom seems to havo dropped out of tho celebration, and, although a few of the more spirited,
after their departure tried to resume
the fun, it did not prove a success, and
finally the meeting dispersed. This
morning Fjra<nl»"W»s 'brought before
Mr. P. MoTieman, J.P., who lined
him $5 and costs, or the usual term of.
imprisonment in default of paying the
same. Frank paid the monoy very reluctantly, and departed after having
made a vow to avoid all celebration's in
future that are held within fifty miles
of a scuoum house.

Lanoley Prairie, Sept. 2Z. —CropB
about here are generally light. Feed
everywhere is dry and bare. An unusually, large number of cattle, .horses
and pigs are running at large here this
summer. Extensive improvements
are to be observed both on the ranches
and the roads of this district, those on
the Murchison estate being especially
noticeable. Quite a number uf implements have oome in here this year, and
it is to be hoped that with better
machinery' and more affluent circumstances the fsrmera will endeavor tu
conduct their operations on a more
scientific scale. Harvesting is nearly
completed. The root crop is looking
fairly well; the turnips, however are
suffering somewhat from grasshoppers.
Our prairie now presents a very nourishing appearance, and persons tn
search of improved land cannot tail of
being suited here; while those on the
lookout for unimproved land can find
almost every variety of land, both for
sale and for pre-emption; aud we desire thst, as in mercantile parlance,
before purchasing elsewhere, parties
will give ui a call. Trouble has again
oropped up aneut our school. This
time it is uot in reference to the site,
but to the alleged improper oonduot
on the part of some persons. Alex.
