MtirJnj Mornlaf, Sept. n, in,
current Events and Opinions.
There is no more objectionable
feature about journalism than the
personalities whicli too often char-
utterize it. Not even the vulgar
language uset) by party hacks brings
greater discredit upon the press.
The sentiments expressed in editorial columns aro, in well regulated
communities, tacitly understood to
be endorsed by the whole personnel
of the journal in whioh they appear,
by gentlemen are treated as such,
and are not attributed to any particular writer. Only on suoh lines
can a publication attain dignity :
only on such terms will writers who
are worth reading connect themselves with the press. We have
had occasion to refer to this matter
before, and ;to request offenders to
quote what appears in Th: Week ns
of Tlie Week, and not as of this or
that contributor. In some cases
our hint has been taken; in others,
we regret to say, it has not. A few.
persons,apparently having conceived
themselves outside ordinary social
courtesies and professional honor,
persist in attributing articles to
some individual writer—usually tho
wrong one. There is no pretence
that this line of action assists to a
better understanding of the subject
under discussion; it is done with
the sole idea of annoyance, and is
the instinct of a blackguard.—The
ind:
The appeal in the case of Louis
Riel has been decided against him
in the superior court, and the sentence, under which he is to be hung
Sept 16, has been affirmed. Even
the most hopeful friends of the late
insurgent leader despair of saving
his life, and it is likely that Riel
will be put to death in spite of all
the efforts that can be put forth in
his behalf. It seems to be the
opinion on all hands that the Do-
miliinrr    grtvernmnnt    1.   limbing a
grave mistake iu this matter. There
is a smack of past centuries about
the hanging of a political prisoner.
It is strangely out of place in the
Dominion of Canada and in the
year of grace 1885. No lustre will
be added to the Canadian name by
this act. Not only is it wrong, but
it ia a wrong that will of its very
nature work evil to those who do
it Riel was chosen by the rebellious half-breeds as thoir leader.
There is little reason to believe that
he did muoh to arouse discontent
among;them. He returned from
Montana, where lie had been for
many years, and found them complaining bitterly of their grievances
and on tite point of breaking out in
open rebellion. Shortly afterwards
they did actually take up arms, and
Riel became their leader. Ho conducted the campaign iu a civilised
manner, and no savage acts were
committed by those acting under
his command. When defeated he
was made prisoner, and will now bo
hanged simply because he waa tho
most able among his people.—Status
Post.
Sinco 1857-58 the national debt
of Great Britain and Ireland has
decreased from £837,144,597 to
£746,423,964 nt the end of lust
year. This is practically a reduction of one-seventh the entire debt
in 24 years, and what is more it released tho huge sum in itself paid
annually on interest to the increased
liquidation of tho debt. But the
reverse of tlmt process is going on
tn Canada. In seventeen years our
national' debt has multiplied threefold, and the amount of taxation
annually absorbed in the payment
of interest alone is increasing. Although in 1867-08 at a muoh higher
rate of interest than now prevails,
the annual interest paid upon the
Dominion public debt was about
four and a half million dollars, yet
it is now only seventeen years later
despite the prevailing low rates
•bout eight million dollars! In
other words one-third the entire annual revenue from customs and excise aro absorbed in paying interest
on the publio debt alone'; nnd year
by year unless the volume of tax-
ition increnies by leaps and bounds
die margin available for ordinary
expenditure must decrease. While
the other two great English speaking countries have by steadily redu
oing their publio debt, released a
considerable sum of money formerly
applied to the payment of interest
in this country alone of the three
English speaking territories, thu
•mount so absorbed is luniiuilly in-
creasing. No thoughtful man cau
contemplate the fact without fueling0
of alarm and dismal forebodings as
to our future.—Ottuwa Free Press,
Tho question of prohibition is bo-
coming more ond moro the burning
one of tho hour. It comes up in all
companies, and is debated with au
ever increasing amount of interest
and excitement The friends of
prohibition are becoming overy year
increasingly numerous. and enthusiastic. They have strong faith iri
the soundness of their principles,
and in the certainty of their success
at no distant day. The amount of
progress made in this direction during Hie lust few years has, Ijeen
simply phenomenal. Those "who
were wont to sneer Iind that that
weapon is, in the circumstuiices, of
no possible use. Abuse has been
found to be equally ineffectual, and
argument, therefore, has mow aud
more been fallen book upon.;: The
Scott Act has been carried in the
large majority of cases in which it
has been tried, and, in general, very
decisively. Some are expressing
themselves as favorable to universal
prohibition, while opposed to the
local option which the Scott Act
secures. Others contend that if this
sort of work go on, those engaged
in the traffic must be compensated
for loss of . capital und. business.
Others say, No, insisting, as they
do, that the liquor traffic is an unrighteous one, and that its victims,
not its promoters, are alone entitled
to compensation. So it goes' oii,
everything indicating more and
more clearly the strong hold which
tho question has taken upon the
judgment and conscience of the
whole community. In these circumstances we think that nothing,
could bo more satisfying to aU parties than that a plebiscite over the
whole Dominion should be taken
on the simple question of prohibition or no prohibition. This could
be easily managed at the time of a
general election for the Dominion
by simply having another section
added to the usual voting paper, to
be marked yes or uo when the ballot was cast. This would very
effectually indicate the present state
of feeling on the subject all over
the Dominion. It would let it be
known in a general way how much
had already been accomplished and
how much required to be done. We
see no reuson why such a plebiscite
should not be taken at every such
eleetion. It would involvo no uddi
tional expense. It could be easily
managed. It would be unfair to
none, and it ought to be satisfactory
to all. In all likelihood we shall
have an election for the Dominion
at no distant day. Why should not
frienda and opponents of prohibition do their host tn havo such a
Voto as we have indicated then cast I
It might settle nothing. It certainly
would not stop agitation. But it
would show all exactly how they
stood, and each could draw from
such an exhibit his own lesson and
his own   encouragement Toronto

There Wns No Looting:.
The St. Paul Pioneer Press saya:
Naturally tlio friends of the defeated
in the. Dominion are railing a terrilio
howl about "looting by the troops,"
and Middleton is accused of stealing
and aotiiiK , accessory tp theft. . : Of
course this is all rot. Middleton li
chargeablo with 'but one queer action
at Batoche. Capt. Hay, of the Royal
Grenadiers (Toronto), led hii men gallantly to the front on the fateful Tuesday, and finding the day won, davoUd
his remaining energies to the capture
of an exquisitely formed dapple grey
gelding, erstwhile the property of
Gabriel Dumont, but than enrooting
Wildly o'er the shot-ploughwl ■ plain.
Hay caught the beauty, rode him into
camp, wus proud as a peacock of his
prize, and mad as a hornet when ordered, as he was right speedily, to
turn him ovor tu the transport depart*
ment, for the General's use. Middle-
ton rode him once or twice and would
have used htm more, but when Pitt
was reached the "vet" discovered that
the. horse had tender feet and waa of
nn earthly uso as a roadster. Thus
time at lust sets ali things oven. As
for tho troops, thoy took what they
flaw in camps and houses utterly deserted; mid if-they hadn't taken the
truck thu half-breed loafer element,
who wore on hand in force, wouldn't
have been backward.
lllrlli of llic Alps.
(.nee upon a timo there veto do
Alps-—indeed, during the whole vast
primary period of geology (embracing
in nil probability four-fifths of the
duration of life upon thii planet) there
ii every reason to believe tint Central
Europe lay consistently and persistently beneath tho depths of the soa.
The German Ocean was then really
coterminous with the whole of Germany, and the sea nf Rbme embraced
the greater part of Catholic Europe.
It was only at tho opening of the secondary period - tho age of the great
marine lizards—that tho first faint embryo of the baby Alps began to bo
formed. Now, the origin of a mountain chain ia not really duo, as most
peoplo used once to imagine, tu a direct vortical upthruat from below, as
when you push a handkerchief up
with a pencil—the old lecturo illustration; its causes and conditions are far
more complex and varied than that;
it ia, in Uct, strange as it may sound
to say so, a result of subsidence father
than of upheaval—it symptom rather
of general shrinkage • thsn of 'local
eruption. For nothing ean shrink
without wrinkling aud corrugating its
surface, a result whioh one commonly
sees alike iu a withered apple, au old
man's hoad, and a dry pond craoked
and fissured all over by the hot sun,
Tho Alps aro thui ultimately due to
tho shrinkage of the earth upon its
own centre; they, uro dislocations nf
the crust' at a weak point, where it
finally collapsed.—Vornhill Magaxine,

There seems to be a great deal
more than harmony among the
members of tho political parties in
Great Britain. The Liberals are
divided up by the defection of the
Radicals, and the Tory party seems
divided into Conservatives nnd Radical Conservatives—the latter following Lord Randolph Churchill.
With a united Irish party legislation will be utterly impossible unless
the lines drawn to separate theso
sulidivisions of the great parties
aro removed. It is altogether
likely, however, that a now party
will be formed out of moderate men
in tlio house, and it mny be strong
enough to support a government.
In View of the enforcement of
the obnoxious provisions of the now
Dominion franchise bill, passed
during last session, and the probability tlmt the revising barristers
will be political partisans, n fund is
being raised by the Canadian Lib-
orals for the purpose of employing
counsel „in each county to see that
voters' lists ore not cooked for political purposes. The fund has been
begun by Mr. J. I). Edgar, M. P.,
who sends the amount of his extra
sessional allowance. Isn't it rather
rough on tho Liberals that they
should lie compelled to pay their
proportion of the expense of watching the lists on behalf of tlieir political opponents, and the whole
expense of watching their own interests!
Sand bars and shoals in the Sacramento river have gone on accuinu
lating with such rapidity that
navigation is now impossible. The
San Francisco steamers are no
longer able to reach Sacramento.
Freight and passengers have to be
transferred to barges, and unless
some means is adopted to improve
thc river it will have to be abandoned altogether as a commercial
highway. Water on the bars has
been reduced to three feet. The
people of Sacramento are naturally
n.«Ui exercised over this condition
of affairs, and it is probable the
government will be forced'to make
an appropriation sufficient to remove the obstructions. In the
mean timo river traffic must be
abandoned.
ed as free from party prejudice, and
it is this: "The government had
failed to recognise tbe rights of the
half-breeds in tho territories. Tboy
did not feel secure in their possessions. Very few of them could
read or write, or were capable of
laying their claims and grievances
before the government. In tlieir
difficulty they sont for Riel. If
the government had made an authoritative declaration that tlie same
treatment that had been given to
the half-breeds in Manitoba would
be given to tliose in the territories,
there would have been no difficulty.
It was idle to say that half-breeds
in Manitoba had sold their lands
and gone into the territories to tako
up new lots. It would not take a
very astuto judge to detect tlio
fraudulent claims, which, aftor all,
were not very numerous. It was
just as idle to Bay that nono of
them had boen dispossessed by colonization companies. The fact that
these had power to disposses them
was sufficient to create the greatest
amount of uneasiness and discontent among the half-breeds, and
they did just what white people
would do under such circumstances
—they rebelled. They felt that
they were righting for their lands,
for tho defence of their homes and
their altars. They wanted a leader,
n representative, a man who could
read and write nnd speak—and
they found him in their old rebel
lender, Riel, who had served them
before."

Details of the international yacht
race last Monday show that it waa
very closely contested over the
whole courso. The difference of
time between the Genesta and
Puritan was scarcely ever more
than four or five minutes, and sev
eral times the Genesta approached
so near to her rival as to cause the
greatest excitement. There seems
ho doubt that the race was a fair
one, but whether the Puritan won
because of her superior model or
because of her superior rigging may
be difficult to determine. It is believed that if the wind had been
stronger the race would have ended
differently. But that is mere conjecture. The Americans are fairly
entitled to the honor of holding the
championship of the world in yachts.
It has hitherto been customary
for the "Victoria city council to divide the city advertising between
the different newspapers. At its
last meeting, however, tho council
manifested a disposition to change
that custom, and tenders are to be
asked from all the papers for publishing certain by-laws. This is the
way city advertising lias been disposed of for the past two years in
this city, and the result is well
known. The advertising goes, of
course, to the newspaper having the
smallest circulation and the smallest
amount of reading matter, because
that paper is published at less cost
than its cotemporary, and its advertising columns are less valuable.
Tlie city simply offers a premium to
a "Mor paper. Tho Colonist protests against introducing suoh a system into Victoria, and its protest is
well taken.
flrant on the Rebellion,
Principal Grant delivered a lecture' at Halifax the other day in
which he touched upon the Northwest rebellion, thc cr:minality of
Kiel, and the responsibility of the
government It cannot be said, at
least, that this eminent scholar
would, for political reasons, express
nn opinion hostile to the administration of Sir John Macdonald, lie-
cause he is well known us an ardent
admirer of Sir John and a government supporter. The opinion ho
expresses, therefore, may be accept-
A Plain Issue.
Sinco the recent speech of Mr.
Parnell upon the attitude and aim
of the Irish party, n very distinct
issue is beforo the country,, and tlio
people of Great Britain do not need
to hesitate as to what course sbould
bp pursued. If the integrity of
tiie empire is to lie maintained, the
demands of Mr. Parnell must be
resisted. It is not true, as stated
by some American papers, that Mr
Parnell's scheme implies no greater
Hlierty for Irelaud timn is now enjoyed by the states of tlio American
republic. It means nothing short
of national independence. The
states have rights which arc most
important, but they do not exercise
control over their tinancial and
economical affairs in tlie sense proposed by the Irish agitator. There
seems to us no good reason why th
l-ti-itieh people nliouhl not concede
to Ireland a local parliament and
powers of self-government such as
the states of the union possess.
Tho legislative power of the nnw
house might be, and in all probability would be, turned at oncn ngainst
the absent landlords; but it may
como to be thought that a cinching
of the landlords would be a less
disaster than the chronic discontent and outrage which have been
devastating Ireland. It may be
true that the Irish are not capable
of self-government. It is quite certain that they would iind great
friction in the machinery cf self-
government, and that some singular
enactments would be found upon
thc new statute book. But the
question of legislative and executive capacity is yet a problem concerning which we can form but
imperfect notions. It might be
worth while at least to make the
experiment; and if it should end in
failure, the state of the country
would be littlo less embarrassing
than it is at present. Thero is
good reason to believe that a reasonable measure of self-government
would be conceded by both parties
iu the British house of commons,
but Mr. Parnell's programme, if
adhered to, destroys all hope of
satisfactory arrangement.

writes: "The ceremonies attending

exception tif snow sheds, etc. The
final completion will have nothing of
the chnrncter of thc Northern's golden
spike 'blow-out,' but all tho railroad
tyhees and mnny government notabilities will come out. Through trains
wilt run during the winter, but it is
believed, thnt,there w-jllbe no regular
schedule, owing to tho non-cumpMiui'
of snow sheds and other protection
against snow blockades. Commencing
this fall or possibly not until spring,
an era of lively times will doubtless
be inaugurated here;" ;-

was put into tho unconscious animal
which only hnd the effect of awaking
it. Seeing the canoo and men, it mnde
a dash for it, but one paddled backward whilo the other reloaded, and
put several shots in the seal. It at
last got tired out, and a couple of
spears were brokon in it, but it still
snowed fight, and ono of the Indians
broke a musket over its head. It took
two canoo crews to put the animal into
another, nnd it was taken to the
schooner. With the,flap* cm the seal
measured twelve feeV inMeiigth and
over five around the body. It is the
largest animal that has been taken,
hunters as a rule being rather shy of
these marine monsters, who, if they

Mokb Chinese Raids.—-The Seattle
tost says that on Friday night betweon
11 and 12 o'clock, a party of masked
men, some thirteen or fourteen iu
numbor, surrounded the Chinese quarters at Coal Creek, about one mile
from thu Newcnstle store, and by yelling iind discharging firearms drove the
alneping Ohinamen from their lodgings.
The Mongolians took to the woods for
safety, just in timu to see their cook
house and lodging house iu flames.
Tho buildings were totntly destroyed,
together with $4,000 or 95,000 worth
of stores nnd 'clothing, whieh wero
kept iu stock thero by a Chineso firm
of this city to be sold to tho China-
iuen, } Thu liortkets, which were but a
short distance from the Chinese quarters, narrowly escaped destruction.
This job in said to have been done by
white men. No murder was committed, and so fnr as is known nono was
attempted, the object being to frighten
the Chinese away from the camp.
These Chinamen have beeu employed
principally as coal pickers iu the bunkers, and recoived $1.25 per day, their

GiuWite Oreik Minks. -Mr, Vf,
Cnsack returned yesterday from a trip
to the mainland and from a visit to
the gold minus in the Similkameen
country. Tho good reports that have
constantly readied here from thnt
Ruction are verified by Mr. Cusnck,
who, stilt* that already fito hundred
ttiifo-rs are' (in the ■(•found ahd^ithers
arriving daily, with tlio great rush next
spring. The claim of Mr. Chanco is
paying from fifty to seventy-live dollars per day tn the man, whilo other
claims aru aho pa) ing well. The easy
access to the mines from Hope renders the bringing in uf provisions
convenient, and they are plentiful on
the creek. Dust is nlso plentiful, and
every one on the creek is confident
that tho district is going to prove a
wouderfu] gold-producing one. The
Chinese have invaded the' oreek, and
are taking out good nay, though it is
not known to Whnt orient. Several
other creeks have been prospected, and
it is reported that one with *'s favorable indications as that of Granite
Creek hits been struck. There is
thus tho prospect that noxt year will
see a lnrgo population in the Similkameen country.—Colonist.

A New Souvenir.— In our issue of
Wednesdny we noticed li souvenir album which Messrs. J. ft. Ferguson &
Co. are getting out from Lipiic, Germany, of whioh they now have the
proof sheets. The work deserves a
much more completed notice than our
apace then permitted. It consists of
08 photos and views of British Columbia and the northern coast, and is without doubt the finest thing of the kind
ever produced in this country. The
first two pages contain a nice arrangement of Victoria views and sui round -
ings. Tho views of Coldstream and
the Fulls; Victoria harbor and the
.Gorge are each little gems. The third
page contains some of the principal
publio buildings in Victoria; the fourth
'page is a magnificent view of tho entrance to our harbor; then follow some
protty views of New Westminster and
the vicinity including the asylum and
penitentiary; the town of Yalo, the
cantilever bridge and some pretty
scenes on the 0. P. R., Black Uafiun,
Hell Gate and a mining scene are specially worthy of notice. Two pages
aro devoted to the Aboriginiea of our
province; a medicine man, two or
three chiefs and some pretty klooteh-
tnon mnke up, if not a pretty group,
at least an interesting one, The views
of carvings, totums and sathluigsiinis
will be interesting to friends at a distance. Nanaimo and its coal industries, nlso are represented iu a aeries
of pretty and effective pictures, as well
ns the archipelago, known as the Thousand Islands; Sitka and tho Greek
churoh. Altogether it forms the prettiest and most complete souvenir album wo have seen, and should receive
a liberal patronage from our citizens.
Messrs. Ferguson & Op. expect to
have it ready early in November, und
no doubt theft enterprise will be well
repaid by meeting with a large sale.-—

Accident to the Str. Kootenay.—
A correspondent of the Colonist says:
"Messrs, McCartney & Co.'s steamer
Kootenay, plying betwoen American
waters and the second crossing of the
Oolumbia iu connection with the C.
P. R. eontrnet, met with n serious
accident on Friday, September 4th,
whicli it is feared will incapacitate
her for further service during the
present season. Tho boat started up
the river with about 48 tons of
freight for the 0. P. R. on Friday
morning. Just.above Sheep creek,
in American waters, the boat ran on
a spit of rocks which lie submerged
right across the main channel of the
river. The bow of the boat seems
to have passed over safely; but the
stern, just about tho after gangways,
rasped the rocks and stuck there.
Every effort was at once made to get
heV off. The freight was removed to
the bank, ropes were laid, and the
captain set to work iu the hopo of
drawing tho boat over the rock. But
all tu no purpose. The boat refused
to move. Each hour's delay brought
on a subsidence of the water of the
river, which is rapidly falling at this
time of the year. After six days' incessant labor it wob determined;to
give the work up. Steps were at
once taken to shure the boat up, so
thut when the river falls she will
stand high and dry on the rocks.
It is difficult to fix the cause of the
accident. The boat, draws more
water than is uecessary for ita safety
on thin treacherous river, and this in
a measure accounts for her running
foul of a reef that competent authorities always supposed was beneath
tho draught of a steamer. Tho accident will be a serious loss to Messrs.
McCartney it Co., for although the
boat can be mado easily fit for sorvice next year she is for the present
season at any rate placed hors de combat. It will also be a serious injury
to the 0. P. U., for the works of the
company have for a week or so past
beon almost at a standstill,'waiting for
the. freight which the Kootenay was
carrying when she met with her unlucky accident.
The Oold Shoulder.
How true it is that real genuine sympathy does not dwell in political circles may be gathered from the following extract from the Toronto Mail, the
loading organ of the Canadian conservative party. So long as Senator Mclnnes remained useful tu his party he
was the white-haired boy; but since
be became discontented, he may go
without a chromo. The Af ail's sympathy for the people of Port Moody is
about the same size as its love for the
senator.   Hove is the extract:
The opposition press is making much
ado about a letter written by Senator
Mclnnes to a British Columbia paper
in which that gentleman describes the
department of railways as a "seething
sink of corruption." It appears that
Mr. Mclnnes thought he had secured
the erection of an engine house at
Port Moody, and telegraphed his constituents that a tender . for the work
had been accepted. It ao happened,
however, that just at that time Coal
Harbor wu made the terminal point
uf the Canada Pacific instead of Port
Moody; and the engine house was
accordingly placed there. Tho senator was very angry, in fact all the property-holders and others interestod in
Port Moody lands felt that a frightful
blow had been struck at the constitution; and in his haste he wrote thus:
"I am pained to say that I bolieve
the Department of Railways is absolutely under the control of the C. P.
R. Company—that the Department of
Railways nnd Canadian Pacific Hallway Company appear to bo one, uud
both are seething sinks of corruption."
Had the round houee be^u erected
at Moody and the owners of the town
site beeu ■ enriched by the establishment of tho terminus there, Suuntor
Mclnnes Would probably havo expressed unqualified approval of the uot inn
of the department and the railroad
company) -and the -opposition would
have replied that under the circum-
stnncoi no was not an impartial witness. But the Port Moody boom having miscarried, much ttt the worthy
senator's chagrin, hii absurd attack
upon Mr. Pope is hailed as an unprejudiced opinion of a supporter of the
government; and Mr. Mclnnes ia now
classed as a member of that "disgusted
conservative party" in the senate which
up to this timo has been officered nud
manned by Mr. Alexander, It iaa
frivolous piece of business, but if Senator Mclnnes should feel that in view
of the collapse of his town plot enterprise it is his duty henceforth to oppose the government, he it so,

AN APPEAL TO THE PRIVY COUNCIL.
Ottawa, Sept. 15. — A despatch
from Regina says that Riol hns been
respited pending tho decision of the
British privy council.
Pauis, Sept. 15.—The Paris newspapers are agitating iu fuvor of the
pardoning of Riel. Clemenceau in
La Justice recalls the appeal of Darwin, Huxley, Hooker nnd Swinburne
to Theirs in favor of Eliseo Recluse
wheu the Intter waH condemned ns a
communist, and proposes a similar appeal by distinguished Frenchmen for
Riol. La France and Figaro insist
tlmt the unanimous sentiment, of
France on this subject must weigh
with England.
Ottawa, Ont., Sept. 17.—The date
to which Kiel is respited, so that an

The Semilkameen Mines.
Mr. F. Richter left Semilkameen
river ou Sunday, nnd is the hist man
out frum thut section. Ho met a
grout mnny men on the trail going
iuto the diggings with the intention
of mining, Grnuito creek is situated
15 miles above the forks of the
Semilkameen river. Tho creek empties into tho north fori; of the Semilkameen, and somo 500 white men
and 500 Chinamen are already mining there. The diggings on Grnnife
creek were discovered by Bill Jenkins
and Tom Curry about June last.
Thoy got prospects of frum four bits
upward and put in sluices in August.
The company have since made as
high ub $200 a day, the gold being
coarse und of a fine quality. It iB
taken in trade at §17 to the ounce.
Mr. Richter saw many fine specimens, weighing from eight to ten
dollars ench. An old man named
Fay, working all alone, is making
$40 a day crovicing. There are many
other claims in which large wages
nre being made. The creek is staked
oil' for two nnd a-half miles from the
mouth; but good prospects have been
obtained further up stream ou benches and claims are beiiif- taken up
there. At present Granite creek is
the ono that has been proved to be
rich; but another creek, also a tributary of the north fork of the Semilkameen rivor, has been prospected with
satisfactory results aud miners have
gone there. Provisions are very cheap.
Beef is 7 to 10 cents; sugar, 20 cents;
toa, §1; tobacco, 01; potatoes, 2 cents;
Hour, jfo per 100, and all other things
iu proportion. The mountains are
being overrun by prospectors from the
British and American sideB. The
mines so far discovered are iu British
territory, and bettor results are looked
for soon. No snow hod fallen, and
there had been no rain ail summer.
The day Mr. Richter left to como out
heavy rains fell und it was reported
that somo of the claims were drowned
out by the sudden rush uf waters.—

ICorrospondenoe of iho Columbian;)
Barkerville, Sept. 11.—The event
of this weok has been the "harvest
home" pic-nic given by Mr. Mason,
assisted by other gentlemen in town,
in celebration of tho safe ingathering
of the hay harvest. Tno season had
boen unusually favorable for this work
and a large quantity of hay hud been
cut and storod up; so that a joyous
gathering on tho hay meadows would
har*) formed a fitting close to tho sea-
son's ^Operations. Unfortunately, the
day fixed upon for the pic-nic was just
one duy too late. The morning of the
8th opened cloudy and threatening
with light rain, nnd disappointment
appeared to cloud the faces of the
children. Later, however, the sun
shone out nnd it was decided, to the
joy of the youngsters, to go on with
the picnic. About 9 o'clock the procession, headed by tho brass band, and
including almost every one in town,
old aud young—some in wngons, some
on horsebnek nnd somo afoot—-started
fur the mendowa on Willow river,
about three miles distant. Notwithstanding a light shower at intervals all
went "merry as a maviiugo bell."
Rnces, games, &c.. were the order of
the dny. But suddenly, while lunch
was yet unfinished, a heavy storm
came on and put an end to all further
enjoyment excepting the fun that was
to be extracted from seeing your neighbor getting wet whito you yourself
wore going through tho snmo process.
A very pleasant social dunce in the
evening to some extent ntonud for the
drenching of tho nfternoon. Cariboo's
chief harvest is best gathered under
rain, so thut the change in the weather
that partially spoiled the pic-nic set
the hydraulic claims onco more in operation; aud if frost uud biiow hold off
for a few weeks it is hoped that something will bo tuken out to mnke up for
the enforced idleness of the dry season.
Nothing veiy etnrtliug is to be expeoted, although it is quite certain
that Cariboo's mining wealth is by no
means exhausted yet; and it is safe to
believe that wo here will yet- share in
the mining boom that should follow
tho completion of the 0. P. R,
Jacob H. Bloomer, of Virgil, N. V
writes: "Or. Thomas' Kclectric Oil cured
a hudly swelled neck mid sore throat ou
my sou in forty-eight hours; one application also removed the pniu from u soiv
tun; iny wife's foot was also much in-
limned—so much so that shu could not
wiili; about the house; she applied the
Oil, and in twenty-four hours was en*
titely cured."

KWS FROM ALL PARTS OF TKE WORU.
New York, Sept. 12.—A Calcutta
Bpecial saye that no doubt remains but
tliat n terrible famine is impending in
India. The crops in Dcccnn have all
failed for wnnt of rain, while in Bengal
the crops nre ruined by excess of rain
nnd floods. The country for fifty miles
about Calcutta is completely submerged.
Nearly all of tlie railways iu the provinces nre injured by Qoods and lnnd
Slides. The railway at Lucker Serra has
beeu completely swept away. Public
subscriptions have hecu opened here aud
in all the large towns. AU possible
preparations are being made to provide
against the famine wliich now seems
inevitable.
San Franoisco, .September 12.—J. I>.

Ottawa, Sept. 12.—Caron, minister of
militia, and General Middleton, who hns
commanded the Dominion forces during
the recent Riel rebellion, leave for British Coiumbin in a few days via San Fran
cisco. The object of the visit is to nscc.
tain what steps should be taken to fortify
Victorin and other lending points in British Columbia. For several years past
the people of that province have complained bitterly of the defenseless condition in which they would find themselves should England be drawn iuto a
war. On the report of Gen. Middleton
parlinment will be nsked at its next
.session to vote a sufficient sum to enable
the minister of militia to thoroughly
fortify British Columbia and fully equip
militia corps already formed there, In
addition to the militia corps a battery of regulars will he formed similar
to the T, and B. batteries, which did
good execution during the recent troubles

and will soon begin aggressive operations
unless terms are modi', with them.
London, Sept. 16.—There is no longer
any doubt of the failure of the mission of
Sir Henry Drummond Wolff, special
British envoy to Turkey. It Ib announced
that thc Anglo-Turkish joint occupation
of Egypt bos been, abandoned anil that
the Porte will consider the expediency of
sending the commission to accompany
Sir Henry to Egypt. It is generally believed thut the Sultan's reasons for not
acceding to the terms offered by the British envoy is that ho feared that Russia
would forget her promises respecting the
treaty of Berlin in the event of an A nglo-
Turkish alliance.
New York, Sept. 16.—The Puritan

40-mite e'onrse from Scotland lightship,
20 miles to leeward and return, hy two
minutes and nine socouds, actual time,
or ono minute and thirty-eight seconds,
corrected time.' The race was said by
the oldest yachtsmen to be tho best and
most closely contested ever seen in the
world. The wind was moderate from
the west northwest at the start. As the
yachts ran dead before it to the outer
murk it increased, ond before they had
Bailed half to windward in tho work ci'
returning, it was blowing half a gale from
tho northwest with quite a lumpy sen.
The Puritan housed her topsail to the
finish. She was two minutes and six
seconds ahead at thc outer mark.
Our Defences.
EniToa CouiBiniAN. — Noticing the
controversy about defence, Esquimau v,
Burrard Inlet, betwoen th« Colonist nnd
your valued paper, I must say the former
appears to know little or nothing of the
requirements for naval and military defence. Gen. Middleton will not Be iu*
fhumced in thia matter by any party.
The most suitable position for barracks
and fortifications for tho defence of tlie
provinco will lie determined by personal
observation and selected. Burrard Inlet
can easily be mnde a second Gibraltar,
whereas Esqnimalt will cost millions of
dollars for defence. Col. Holmes, 1). A.
G,, who recommended Burrard Inlet for
the above works, evidently knew what
he was doing.   Yours, Ac, fto.,

Do not delay iu getting relief for the

If you love your child why do you let it

A lady from Syracuse, writes; ''For
about seven years before'taking Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and
Dyspeptic Cure, I suffered from a complaint very prevalent with our sex, I
was unable to walk any distance or stand
on my feet for more than a few minutes
at a timo without feeling exhausted,
but now I am thankful to say, I can walk
two miles without fecbiig tlie least inconvenience." For Female Complaints it
has no equal.
Sabbath Desecration.
At Humilton, Ont,, not long ngo,
Rov. Dr. Hunter preached on the importance of Sabbath observance, nnd
we tukc from tho Times tho following
report of the discourse:
Isaiah lviii. I'd, 14; "If.tlnm turn
away thy foot from the snbbnlh, from
doing thy pleasure on my holy dny;
and call the sabbath a delight, the
holy of thu Lord, honorable, and shalt
honor him, not doing thine own ways,
nor finding thiuu own pleasure, nor
spunking thine own words; then shalt
thou delight thyself in the Lord; and
I will cause Uiuc to ride upon the high
places of the earth, mid feet) thee with
iho heritage of Jacob thy fat her: for
Ihu mouth of the Lord iiuth spoken
it."
In the course of his remark** the rev,
gentleman snid: Tliere are some sins
which the ItiblueniphnsiBeaasspecially
displeasing to God, mid Sabbath dcsi-
crution is one of them. Thero ni'»
some commandments to the keeping of
whioh special promises and rewards
are attached, and that which enjoins
the sanctity of tho Sabbath is one of
them. It would nut bo difficult to
trace in tbo history of nations, cities
and communities tho march of prosperity or tho footprints of adversity in
exact proportion to the trentment accorded God's holy dny. In the Toronto Globe of the 17th inst. Hamilton is
held up to the gazo of the world as
following fust iu the footsteps of the
worst American cities in its disregard
of tho sanctity of the Sabbath, It Is
slated that street cars, pleasure boats
and excursion trains are regularly run
on that day, and that even tho hack-
men hnvo resolved to take the stand as
usual on tho Sabbath. I thank the
Globe for its honesty und fidelity, for
it has told the truth. X hope every
pulpit in the city will enter its protest
and that the press will join iu tbo protest. I call upon our mayor and aldermen, whom we have honored because
they arc worthy, to exercise any authority they possess in the premises; and
if they don't do so I call upon the ratepayers to put them ull out at the next
civic elections. Vfe have a chief of
police und u competent fctuff whose
duty it is to arrest nnd prosecute all
violators of law, nnd I call, upon them
to do their duty and spare us the
shame and disgrace which threaten the
city. I want to establish two propositions. First, that a seventh day's
rest frum work is a requirement of nature aud a source of profit to ita observers, Secondly, that pleasure drives,
picnica und excursions are incompatible
with tliis requirement. When it was
proposed to open the world's exposition iu London on Sunday six hundred
and forty-one medical practitioners of
that city certified to tbo British parlinment that the rest of the Sabbath "was
essential to tbe bodily health and mental vigor of men of every station of
life." Four hundred and fifty locomotive engineers of New York have
memoralized W. H. Vanderbilt to be
relieved from Sabbath work on the
ground that it injures their health,aud
that with the rest of the Sabbath they
can do more work and do it bettor in
six days than they can now do'in
seven. There is a growing tendency
to plead for Sabbath recreation, and
the cry is raised: "Let the poor mechanics have uu outing on Sunday,"
but history and experience prove that
people who spend Sunduy as the text
enjoins are best tilted for the work of
the week. In answer to inquiries 150
employers testify that church-goers are
more effective employees than those
who spend the Sabbath in Sunday excursions. The continental Sabbath
has brokon down the morality of every
city that has adopted it. The plea at
the beginning was just as it is amongst
UB**-'-Let the pent-up artizaus have a
little fresh air, let them drivo out into
the country or go down to the beach
or take a sail on the bay," and that
thin edgfc of the wedge rent m^dei*
the vory foundations of morality. Look
at tho morals which prevail wliero the
continental Sabbath prevails: 34 per
cent, of tho children born in Paris are
illegitimate, 34 per cent, in Brussels,
54 per cent, in Vienna, 72 per cent, in
Rome; while in London the percentage is only 4. Daniel Webster suid,
"The Sabbath is tho bulwark of liberty, because it is the bulwark of morality." The committee of the British
parlinment in 1832 said: "It appears
in evidence that in each trade, in proportion to the Sabbath desecration is
the immorality of those engaged in it."
Blackstune said: "A corruption of
morals usually follows a profanation of
the Sabbath." Volteire confessed that
he despaired of destroying Christianity
so long ns the people gathered statedly
aud in large numbers for religious
worship. And just in proportion as
we countenance Sunday excursions
and pleasure-seeking we lend our in-
fl iienco to destroy Christianity—the
vory foundation of national prosperity
aud stability. . I trust that I have ns
much sympathy for mechanics, laborers, clerks, shop girls and tired mothers as tliose who plead for Sunday excursions havo. When I plead that
thuy shall not be compelled to work on
Sunday it is in their interest that I
plead; and when I plead that the Sabbath shall not bo secularized and turned
into a day of pleasure I do so in the
interest of tho working classes. To
read the accounts of Sunday excursions
in Chicago and Now York is enough to
make the heart sick. Drunkenness,
profanity, lij-htine, prostitution, and
every form of evil attend them. God
has given us six days in which to provide fur our personal and family
wants, and Ho saya "the seventh
day is tho Sabbath of the Lord
thy God — keep it holy." Ho is
a mean man who steals God's
day, and he is a wicked man who
degrades it to the purposes of work or
pleasure Do you tell me that the
working classes have no time for recreation aud innocent pleasure? Then
let us agitato a labor reform. Anything rather thau steal from God and
bring down His judgments on the nation. I have nut spoken too soon on
this subjecU There is a determined
effort to break down our quiet church-
going Sabbath and give us in its place
a free Sabbath, of which Mr, Charlton, in his speech in the houso of commons, said: "It is a Sunday free from
rest. It is a Sunday free from religion.
It is a Sunday free from mental culture. It is a Sunday free from moral
improvement. It is a Sunday free for
the employer to compel the employee
to work for him." I am glad that
Canada hss a man with the courage to
apeak out like thst in the nation's
legislative halls. Shall wo have such
a Sunday as that in Hamilton?

J. CreBWcll, counsel for the United
States, mnde un important statement
respecting the business of the court,
und the prospect of its completion
within the time fixed by law, viz.:
tho 31st December noxt.
The court, ho said, was organized
July 13,1882. Thu number of cases
filed of ihe first class was 1,(102, and
of the second class 4,419, tho total
amount claimed being about $27,040,-
000. In the year 188'Htio court tried
and disposed of 832 eases; in 1884,
1,Mo, nnd in 1885, np to and including thu session of yesterday, 1,053
casus, mukiug a total of 4,181 iu three
years, and leaving 27 first class coses
still untried.
Up to nml including July 15,1885,
the court hnd disputed of cases of the
tirst clnss claiming §11,000,343, and tho
sums allowed amounting to 92,145,731.
In oases of the second class tried within the same time there were claimed
$10,152,180, nud the court has awarded 87,274,83!!. The casus uf the first
claws remaining to be tried he believed
would not increaso the amount awarded
in thnt class to mure than $2,500,000
principal, making the total amount
with the interest added about $3,750,-
000, leaving n balance of between
$5,000,000 and $0,000,000 to be divided pro rata between the second class
claimants. Tho 4,181 cases disposed
of involved over 7,200 separate judgments, nnd in some coses recently considered, and in others awaiting trial,
forty or even a hundred claimants
were embodied iu one case. The testimony with regard to each of those
had to be considered by the Court in

The Island or Ceylon.
Trie Island of Cayloii is 270 milea
in length, 160 miles in breadth, nnd
very mountainous neat the centre,
there being mountains ranfiini; bot vteelj,
3,000 and 7,000 feet high, ten of which
are abore the hitter limit. The highest is Pidurutalage, 8,290 feot. Largo
tracts of the island aro still covered
with dense jungle, in which many wild
.lephants are to be found; but the
wanton slaughter of these useful animals led the government*to, prohibit
their destruction oxcept under special
permission. Of. late thore liavo been
great progress and improvement in the
means of intornal communication.
There aro good roadways, metalled
and gravelled, nud now 178 miles of
roadway and 167 miles of canal, which
haye done much to promote tho interests of the country. Tho population has been steadily increasing, and
,' itQw .it numbers 2,860,000. Thoro aro
'Europeans, .Eurasians nnd Burghers,
Singaloso, Tamils, Moors and a few
Parseos, Afghans, Malays and otliora.
The Singalese inhabit the inte-jor parts
of the coast and comprise nee-Jy VStiHv,
whilo tho Taiajils
and they complained of onnui. Their
bones ached with not having sufficient
exorcise, and they would nil be glad
when they got aome work to do. So
far, thoy hnd nothing to complain of
either ns regnrds food or trentment,
und nll appeared to think very highly
'of Mr. Bedson. Neither Monkman
hor Lepino put in an appearance, and
those wo saw, amongst whom wero
Parenteau and Champagne, appeared
silent and downcast, and declined to
talk, and wore evidently glad whon we
censed questioning them. Alex. Fisher, on tlio contrary, wus briBk nnd
chipper, nnd talked nwny at a groat
rate, and whon we1 turned to leavo
wished us good-bye very pleasuntly.
Tho last seen of Poundmaker ho was
sonted iiiBide an arbor in one coiner of
tlio. garden, pulling awny at his oigar
nud looking contontedly down upon
tho attendant Fishor, who seems quite
contented without his governorship.
Speaking nbout Poundmaker, Warden Bodson said it wns not the intention to treat the chief harshly, or to
put in forco all tho rules and regulations of Hio penitentiary in his caso.
Ho will be allowod lo wear his hnir,
and bo given us much .liberty na is con-

Tho Europiums are comparatively fow
in number, being under 5,000; but nf
Eurasian, and Biirghora thero nre
nearly 18,000. There nro 180,000
Moormen, who ure tn be found iu
large numbers nll over tho different
provinces. Tho poBtnl service throughout the island is inn vary satisfactory
state. Scarce a town or village but
boasts of a poat-oflioo, and ero long
thoy are to have added tb them the all
important savings bank, which doos so
much to influence thrift and economy.
The island has many institutions for
the sick nud the diseased in body nnd
mind, nnd in education the people uro
fnt*rm advance of their northern neigh-
borsi English is protty generally
spoke'nj and particularly among tho
domestic class. Tho products of tho
country are very varied, and consist
of. rice, cinnamon, cocoanut, paints,
tobacco, sugur-cane and cotton,-and
latterly coffee, cinchona, India rubber
and tai hava been added. The lnnd
is .adjmibly adapted for the growth of
rice. The*ciiltivatiou ot coconnuts
has beou gradually inoreasing, and,
though a largo quantity is exported, a
large trade is done in tho coirfibro,
from the husk, and in expressed
oil from the kernel of the nut.
The 'cultivation oxtenils nearly all
along the-wost. part- of the-island.
The great planting industry, however,
ls.nOwcilffeo and tea. For many years,
during the occupation of the Dutch in
1740, theoultivation of coffee wns confined to the low-lying country; but it
was not till the ocoupa.t.ipii of the British, when communication between the
hill country and the coast wiamade,
that it begau to flourish, and' since
thon it has beeu gradually extended all
over the central and weatern provinces,., , Thu opening of tho railway between Kandy nnd Colombo did much
to stimulate th'e industry by supplying
cheap free labor and greater facilities
for thc market. Large quantities of
jungle were cleared and planted, and
everything seemed to insure a permanent good investment, but an enemy

The long standing rivalry betweon
heavy ordnnnco and armor5''plates is
likely to bo disposed of in a manner
littlo expected, as a nioanjpippears to
have boon discovered wlioreby the
effects of shot and shell, and oven torpedoes, will bo offectually^noutrulized.
For some timo past naval nrclmecta
havo ceased to rely solely upon armor
for the protection of ships; for. notwithstanding the enormous thickness
to which armor plntos had attained,
they were found to bo no match for
the artillery that was brought lo bear
upon thom. Steel plates and compound plutos were next tried, but to
no avail. As a further increase in tho
thickneBS of plates, whethor of iron
or stoel or both combined, was impracticable, owing to the overweighting of
vessels with armor, shipbuilders tried
the expedient of supplying a second
line of dflfemso in the coal bunkors,
which wore constructed along the aides
of ships, especially thoso parts whero
tho machinery and magazines are located. They certainly, to some extent, furnished that second line without overburdening the vessel, for coals
hove, to bo carried under any circum
stances.
But a far more effective protection
appears now to.hnve been supplied by
the invention of a composition which,
besides being efficacious ■ as a protector, possesses [the merit of being light
—n desideratum much wanted by
naval constructors. This composition
is a preparation obtained from cocoa-
nut cellulose, which has thc remarkable property, when penetrated by shot
and shell, or even after the explosion
of a torpedo, of closing up rapidly nnd
thus preventing the influx of wntor
into the ship's hold.   The very nppro-

scch a failure, following on the investment by a number of planters in the
higher districts, led to the most aeriouB
consequences and rain. These losses
convinced many that the climate and
character of the soil were admirably
adapted for the cultivation of tea. and
the result has been that thousands of

Pounflinakcr's Prison Lire.
A reporter of the Manitoban, after
describing ft visit to the interior of
Stoney Mountain penitentiary, thus
writes of Poundmaker and the other
Indian and halfbreed prisoners incarcerated there: The warden now led the
way to the garden, and hero at last we
saw the veritable Poundmaker, a trifle
thinner it is true than when we saw
him first at Battleford, but still "the
noblest Indian of them all," and looking quite young considering his forty-
four years. He wore the convict dress,
but it was hidden in a great measure
by the blanket he is allowed to uso,
and the hideous shoes worn by the
ordinary convict do not disfigure the
Cree chief's feet, for he still wears
moccasins. His long black hair, of
which he is so proud, has been spared
by the authorities, and hangs down in
a long plait almost to his knees, and is
covered with a twisted handkerchief
from the vulgar gaze, on account of
tho number of visitors who hanker for
a lock of Iub hair by way of a relic.
He has been strictly cautioned against
parting with his hair in this way, as
the authorities do not wish to see the
great chief Poundmaker go back to his
peoplo baldheaded at the ond of his
three yews. When wo first saw him
he was walking slowly down the centre walk in the garden with tho prospective governor of Asainiboia, Alexander Fisher, trotting by hia Bide like
an attendant terrier, but on seeing the
warden he approached us and shook
hands with a smile. Through hie interpreter, Alex. Fisher, of Batoche, a
small-sized, sharp-faced little man,
with a cunning smile whenever he
addrossed you, we asked Poundmaker
ue voral questions as to how he felt,
how lie was treated, and what he
thought of the placo.
"I wm in this country wheu I was
a young man," said the chief, "at the
stone fort, on tho Bed Kiver, over
twenty summers ago. . This place was
not here then. It is not a very bad
place here, and Mr. Bodson is a good
man, but it is not liko being nut on
the prairies whero I have my young
men to do what I tell them. But I
must not complain, for the government
it very good to me. The walls of that
building" laid ho, pointing to them,
"are very thick, und the poor Indinn
could not get out, but the white chief
openi the door for the Indian to walk
out and soo the trees and the sun."
The interpreter said Poundmaker
appeared well in health, nnd nover
complained. Hols' allowed tho use of
tobacco, and we accordingly presented
him with a cigar. Several of the rebel
half-breed prisoners now came up, all
being dressed in convict clothes, with
tbelr beards shaved and hair cropped
•hort. Wo questioned them through
tht interpreter hi to how they felt,
the composition before a French commission at Toulon, which, ir. everything that is reported concerning them
is true, prove the preparation to bo
destined tc, solve the armor plate controversy. The commission submitted
the composition to a three-fold teat
against shot, Bhell and torpedo. Tlie
target was a coffer dam made of n mix*
turo of fourteen parts of pulverized
cellulose and ono part of cellulose in
fiber. This composition was com*
pressed to a folt-like mass, of which
one cubic foot weighed about eight
pounds. A layer of beams four and
three-fourth incheB thick represented
the side of the ship, behind which
there was a layer of coffer dam two
feet thick. Against this target a
seven-nnd-a-half-inch solid shot was
fired, which penetrated it, taking with
it nnt quite one-fifth cubic foot of composition, n very small quantity, considering the Bize of the shot. But as
soon as the shot had paa3ed through
the target the cellulose composition
cloned up again, and so firmly that a
strong man was unable to force his
arm through the opening mnde. A
box filled with water was then fixed
against the aperture, tho contents of
which- ought to hnve acted in the
Bamo way na if the coffer dam had
been washed away by the sea. It
was observed that a lew dropa of
water began to percolate after the
lapao of from ten to fifteen minutes; and even after the composition hnd become well saturated with
water, only between threo nnd live
pints escaped per minute, which
could be easily intercepted by pails.
As soon as the cellulose had become
thoroughly sonketl and grown denser,
it offered greater resistance to the percolation of water, which finally almost
ceased to flow. The experiments with
shell gave similar results, the breach
mado closing automatically. It wns
nlso found that the cofferdam was
proof against firo. A special experiment was made in wliich red-hot coals
were placed upon a muss of cofferdam,
and covered with the same composition, the result being that tho fire went
out. The experiments with torpedoes
were not so Uecisivfe its those with ahot
or shell. A chest waa anchored out nt
Boa, ono side of which was lined willi
coffer dam, a torpedo attached to it
and exploded. The chest floated for a
fow .seconds and then snnk. When
fetched up by n diver, it was found
that tho lid hnd beeu blown off, hut
the coffer dnm composition wns little
injured. The above experiments appear to prove that tho material in question .possesses the property of automatically closing a leak caused by shot
or shell, and of protecting a ship to a
certain extent against fire. Whether
its.use will .render ships unsinkahle
remains to be shown, but wu under
stand that in ordor to investigate this
point thoroughly, further experiments
on a larger scale nre to be undertaken
by the Toulon commission.
One of the most vivid exhibits of
the fear of Dakota cyclones ia found at
ii little station on the Hope division of
tlie Manitoba road. A cautious storekeeper has hod irun stay-rods run from
either side of his building to tho ground
where they aro fastened to dqeply imbedded1 piles. With this precaution
he is prepared against uny ordinary
guBt of Dakota wind.
