The famous Pitcnirn colony now
numbers 107 people, of whom 57
aro women. They are happy, contented and religious, using neither
tobacco nor liquor. There is no
sickness among them, and no death
has occurred in two years. McCoy
and Young, the leaders of the colony, are now very old, hut can still
sing Moody ami Sankey hymns with
great vigour. The colonists aro the
descendants of the mutineers of the
British ship Bounty, whioh in 1788
was sent to Tahiti for bread-fruit
trees.—N. Y. Tribune.
A New York photographer prints
a circular containing the following
advice:—"When a lady sitting for
her picture would compose her
mouth to a serehecharacter she should
just before entering the room, say
"Bosom," and keep the expression
into which Ihe mouth subsides. If,
on the other hand, she wishes to
assume a distingushed und somewhat noble bearing, she should say
"Brush," the result of which is infallible, If she wishes to make her
mouth look small, she must say
"Flip," but if tho mouth be already
too smalt and needs enlarging, she
must say "Cabbage." If she wishes
to look mournful she must say "Kerchunk," if resigned, she must forcibly ejaculate "S'uat."
The manufacture of false teeth for
hones bids fair to become a regular
industry. A New York veterinary
surgeon recently said on the subject: "They bare made wonderful
progress within the past year, and
they oan do anything now in horses'
teeth that they can do in human,
I heard of a case' a few days ago
when this new invention was tried
with perfect success. The horse's
teeth were pulled one by one, and in
the cavity left open a new tooth
was inserted. It was literally cemented in, and although the gums
were sore for a week, they finally
hardened and now give the animal
no trouble. Filling hones' teeth
and cleaning them is a common
thing now, and in a few yean that
practice will be all the rage."
"Mamma," said little Bobby,"
"can't I have another piece of pie)"
"No, my dear. You had sufficient,"
"Bat why can't I have morel" "It
might make you sick, and if you become siok and might die." "Die
just like Johnny Brown!" "Yes, my
dear," "Everybody said he went to
Heaven, mamma," "Yes, dear.
He was a good little boy and always minded what his mamma told
him." "And people said, mamma,
that he'd be ever so much happier
in Heaven than, here." "That's
right, Bobby, So he would." "Do
all good little boys go to Heaven,
mamma." "Yes, dear." "Am I a
good little boy, mammal" "Yes.
Bobby is a good little boy." "Then
why don't you let me have another
piece of pie? Don't you want your little Bobby to be hnppyl"—Pittsburg
Dispatch.
According to an official report,
which has just been issued, the annual cost of the attempt to exter
minute the Australian rabbits in
Victoria has risen from £1,280 in
1878 to £20,200 last year, while in
New Si.nth Wales no less a sum
than £360,000 has been expended
during the List four yean; and although in some districts they are
considerably reduced in numbers,
yet there is no general improvement,
and it is now suspected that the rabbit destroyers have not been acting
honestly, as, although hundreds of
thousands have been killed, yet in
a few mouths they are as abundant as
ever. The New South Wales government now proposes to resorts to
the more practical expedient of inclosing 12,000,000 aores of the most
thickly infested districts with 2,000
miles of net-wire fencing.—London
Truth.
The Scientific American gives tho
following receipt for curing deerskins
sn as to make them durable and
pliant like soft leather:—"Wash the
skin in warm water and removo all
llcsby matter from the inner surface;
then clean the wool with soft soup
and wash clean. When the skin is
perfectly free from all fatty and oily
■natter, apply the following mixture
to the flesh side:—Common salt and
ground alum J pound each and '
ounce borax. Dissolve the whole in
ono quart of hot watenjand sufficiently cool to bear tho hands; add ryo
meal to make it into a thick paste,
which spread on the flesh side of the
skin. Fold it lengthwise, the
being quite moist, and let it remain
for two weeks in an airy and shady
place; then remove the paste from
tho surfnoe, wash and dry. When
nearly dry, scrape the flesh tide of
the skin with a crescent-shaped
knife."     '

MILXTAltY itlOT.S.
LoNixiN, Oot. 17.--The military
riots between the King's Rifles and the
Irish Rifles of the British garrison at
Malta were more serious than was at
first reported. The affair was most
scandalous, and will be the subject of
an inquiry. The number of, tbe injured is not definitely stated, but the
reports agree tbat it is large. Tho
arrest of the participants in the disgraceful fight continues, and the
guilty ones will be harshly dealt with,
HOOTINO THE ALORBMEH.
London, Oot. 17.-A deputation of
unemployed workmen made another
visit to the Mansion house to-day to
demand work. Tho aldermen whom
they saw, referred them to the work
houso. This infuriated - the mob who
hooted the aldermen vigorously. The
police surrounded the crowd while
they were marehintr through the eity.
Twenty persons have been arrested
for participating in the riot. The
number of injured cannot yet be correctly stated, but these taken to , the
hospital alone aggregate & much greater number than was st Brst supposed.
THE LONDON RIOTS.
London, Oot. 17.—To-day's riot in
Trafalgar square was a ridiculous affair
at the best and reflects no credit upon
the police, who might have prevented
any demonstration approaching to
violent disorder. Their action to flay,
however, hns done more barm than
good, and created a great deal of sympathy with the mob in quarters ordinarily aud for the best of reasons, opposed to the so-called "unemployed
workingmen" and their claims. The
chief cause of complaint against the
police is that they allowed tho mob
full license up to the point of rioting,
and then, when the crowd acting upon
the natural assumption that the police
were afraid of them, became noisy and
violently demonstrative, began to push
and pumraell them into submission.
Everybody who had an opportunity to
observe the affair from the beginning to
the end is of the opinion that the
crowd could have been dispersed by
the exercise of a little more - firmness
on the part uf the police at the outset
without the necessity of striking a
blow, and agree that the dangerous
element, still convinced by the temporizing of the authorities that they
are held in fear, will persist in holding
meetings, forming processions and
making riotous demonstrations unless
some decided notion iB taken. Should
the trouble continue, drastic measures
must be resorted to, and the belief is
general that they should be taken at
once. The mob is chiefly composed of
ex convicts and other dangerous elements that would scarcely be tolerated
in America, The really deserving unemployed take no part in the acts of
violence, but, of course, come in for
their share of the blame, and their
sufferings aro consequently very much
increased, while their chances of obtaining employment are correspondingly reduced; Trafalgar square is daily
and nightly filled with legitimate ob*
jocta of charity, and has become one of
the principal visiting places of sightseers curious tn observe the extreme
depths if misery.
Winnipeg Items.
Winnipeo, Oct. 15.—About 11:30
lust night a general fire alarm was
souuded. A tire hnd bi-nkoii out in
the lan/e frame building formerly occupied by Buokle »t Sons, printers,
Riboyd, bookbinder, aud several other
firms. Iu a few moments tho building
was one mass of flames and the firemen
bent their energies iu trying to savo
thu adjoining buildings, in whioh they
Kart'aUy succeeded, A high wind was
lowing at rhetimunml the burning
ilih:ia -van carried through the air.
This rendered the firemen's ttsk a
ditlicult ono. Sparks alighted on the
building occupied by Jolm A. Tees,
commission merchant, fully 300 yards
away, and in a few minutes the whole
building wns ablaze. The tirtmen
woiked hard ami kept the fire confined to Tees' building, O'Loughlin
Brbp,, wholesale stationers, close by,
hud n narrow escape. By 3 o'clock
tlio tire was completely under control
and tlu'citizens breathed freer, as at
one time it looked as if the whole city
was doomed to destruction. Tho heat
was so intense thnt several firemen
were probtratod und hnd to be carried
away. The loss will probably reach
850,000. The buildings wcreinsuredfull
value in the Norlh British Commercial Union, Northern, Quebec and
Glasgow and London companies. The
other insurances were unknown.
D. L. Moody, tlio famous Evangelist, hns signified his willingness to
visit Winnipeg this fall.
Tho local government have agreed
to grant aid to extend the Hudson Bay
Railroad ten miles to Lako Manitoba
this full. .
A syndicate of local capitalists, acting iu connection with the city council, has made nn effort to tako up the
entire $300,000 of bonds of the Red
River Valley Road on certain conditions, one of which is that this amount
will secure the completion of the road.
Oood lawyers here declare the bonds
to bo legal, but whether they are or
not, the peoplo have confidence in
them.

Mitchelstown.
Editor Columbian.—Are you not
just a littlo mixed about that Mitchelstown affair? You inform us that "tho
officials who precipitated the Mitchelstown riots have been indicted by the
grand jury for murder;" and then,
after some very sensible remarks about
tho danger of appeals to rice prejudices, you exclaim, "but no one looked
for the indictment of officers tent to
onforco the law against pugnacious
tenants." Now, the Mitchelstown
affair was not an "eviction" riot at all.
A public meeting (not "proclaimed")
was in progress, in the open air—a
legal, constitutional meeting. 'A government reporter wished tb get to ft#~
platform, and the police undertook to
club a passage lor him through the
audience! The audience naturally
resented this treatment—a riot ensued .
—the police took refuge in their barrack—some stones were thrown at the
building—and the police shot down
three of the rioters. That is the history, in brief, of the Mitchelstown
affair; and I certainly cannot see how
the conduct of the reporter's escort is
to be justified, unless one is prepared
to adopt the coercionist theory that a
policeman, oh the production of na
other warrant than hie dub, must be,
allowed to doas he pleases, where and
when he pleases. Such a theory may
do for Russia, but it willbea"oold
day" for freedom when it becomes
generally prevalent under the Union '
Jack.    . Briton.
[We confess to a misapprehension of
the exact nature of the Mitchelstown
riot. Eviction riots have been so fearfully common of late in Ireland that
we inadvertantly associated the deplorable events at Mitchelstown with one
of them.—Ed.] .:

tnettn EvenlM, Oct.  IS, 1881.
Misrepresenting Again.
In his issue of Friday evening
our cotemporary of the Vancouver
Herald gives us another column on
disallowance. Our esteemed cotemporary founds his remarks on the
assumption that the Columbian
adviscil the people of .Manitoba to
call n special session of the legislature, grant another charter for the
road and rush the work through to
completion beforo the veto power
can be exercised. We have frequently had occasion to remonstrate
with our salt water cotemporary because of hia habit of twisting things
out of shape, and endeavoring to
convict peoplo on testimony evolved
from his own imagination; but these
remonstrances seem to have been
fruitless. In the present instance
the Columbian gave no such advice
as stated by our cotemporary. Indeed, it gave no advice at all, and
the Herald has been merely constructing a man of straw. It would
be very easy {or us to show the
absurdity of our ootemporary's remarks; but in view of his disagreeable fondness for perverting facts
and misrepresenting circumstances,
wa deem it unwise to enter upon a
controversy with him on this question.
The "(lampion" Speaks.
In his issue of Friday (which,
for some unaccountable reason, did
not reaoh this city till yesterday)
our cotemporary of the Colonist
makes some very pointless observations respecting the "champion"
resolution passed by the council of
this eity. Our cotemporary expresses indignation at the Columbian's vigorous language, but is
discreet enough not to deny any of
our assertions. An attempt is made
to lead the public to suppose that
the Columbian's reference to the
time-table was suggested by the
Colonist's impolitic denunciation;
but as a matter of fact both appeared on the same day, and the
Columbian was issued long before
any Colonist of that date reached
ths mainland—a fact which our co-
temporary very well knows. Our
cotemporary refers to the Columbian's remarks on the timetable as
» "futile effort" and a "milk-and-
water policy." Have the more vigor-
oui (if less politic) remarks of our
cotemporary been any less futile!
We may submit to our cotemporary
the same question we submitted to
the council. Which would be more
likely to receive favorable consideration from the railway company and
result in the adjustment of a grievance, the hostile and illnatured denunciations of the Colonist, or the
temperate protest and friendly suggestion ot the Columbian! If we
bed wished to be sensational, or to
have reoklewly ruptured the amicable relations which have always
existed between the railway company and this city, instead of do-
siring above all things to guard the
interests of those whom the Colonist
■ought to enlist as allies in its unpatriotic attacks upon the railway
and steamship line, we should, per
haps, have adopted our ootemporary's style. The Colonist concludes
by intimating that of the two papers
published in this oity "one is so
interested in Vancouver and the
otter so wrapped up in Fort Moody"
that neither of them represents
Westminster. In proof of this it
asserts that some of our citizens
have on hand a scheme for the establishment of a paper here that
will stand up for the interests of this
city. Our local cotemporary may
■peak for himself, but we deny in
uie most unqualified terms that the
Columbian is interested in Vancouver or that it has ever, advocated
the interests of that oity against
those of any other section of the
province. Neither the Colonist nor
the "citizens" who have taken it
into their confidence can furnish
proof, either general or specific, to
substantiate any suoh insinuation.
Indeed, it is not long since this very
Colonist was acousing the Columbian of sectionalism and selfishness
because we stood up vigorously for
the interests of Westminster and
tke mainland against the greedy de
signs of the journal which our council now certifies to be "champion" of
royal city rights! If the proposal
of a scheme to establish another
paper is proof of the Columbian's failure to guard the interests of this
oity, then we shall prove that tho
Colonist has conspicuously failed to
advocate the interests of the city
from which ita support is derived.
At one time it was the only newspaper in Victoria; but three others
wen brought into existence, two of
which still live; so that our cotem-
ponury's argument tells against him-
•eif with doable force. While the
Columbian has endeavored to keep
in view the interests of all sections
of the province, it has never suffered itaelf to forget that Westmin
■Mr hu the fint claim upon its
attention, and we can appeal with
oonfldence to our readers to Bay
whether it haa punned a course that
jtutifie. either the council's resolution or 'he groundless insinuations
of: the eonnoil's "champion."

/■fiilmn-This ivorrl was Introduced
into thi- I' i rlisli lilngil ig • in 1807. The
editor oi »hr Aiiuiiril liuytyor for that
year rh'si'ri bull tlio Imltle of I'ylan, anil
tu doing so mentioned a flattish hill,
which Tie srii.I 'in Freni-k military
phraseology is culled a plateau.' Lest
this should be misunderstood he inserted
a foot note to state that the word meant
a platform.
Putting the. Right Foot Forward—One of
the additions of Pythagoras was this.
'When stretching forth your teet lo have
yonr sandals put on first extend your
right foot, but when about to step into a
buth let your left foot enter Am. Jaui-
bliirluu says the hidden meaning is:
'That worthy actions should be done
h artily. but base ones should bo
avoided.'
jirmoralitc—Our own Dr. Webster
seems to have toineri this word. Prof.
i.y.ril, an Krig'r-ri luulior in his 'Travels
in llie liiiteii Slates, srivs Hint when he
w.iHiii'this'coriiM'i' bonified upon Web-
Hror, who. iu (Tilly to 'inestions, said be

d'o"—The .v.r'i to gall is a metaphorical allusion lo the. helplessness of a young
bird (aid, yellow, Irom the color of the.
down of art unite Igcd bird.) The French
use the word ninis, a nestling, lo signify
one easily galloJ. Thu Italians use the
word pippione, n young pigeon, in the
same sense, Vo have borrowed the latter, and use thu woi.1 in the case of a
rritlgeoii, one who lias been duped at
imrils or any other gamo.
To Trumpet 'Ine'i (loud Deeds.—Tbe allusion is to oio of ihe Pharisaic sect
mile I Iho aim's-'iver, who bad a tram-
p.rt sounded Ire.oru them, ostensibly to

lietievo'.encu. Iu the phrase, "ron sound
your trumpet,' the allusion is to heralds,

ll.it. s>
Hummer—Literally one who sits or
irl'es about; a loafer; a |ast,-jtecltless nd
intemperate person. Tie term originat-
e 1 in California a few years ago, ana was
llr-st applied to a class of men who pro-
lessed to be journalists, aud who obtained, on the strength of their false repre-
s 'iitnlionr, free dinners, drinks and other
favors, They were styled 'literary bummers.' Tlio term 'bummer' soon had a
general application in its reference to the
Inning, disreputable men who inlest
society.
Q in the Comer—Properly 'qneue'ln
the Corner.' The queue is the seal affixed lo legal documents in France. They
were so-called because ther/ ,weje»i>r-
merly attached to a loop or fall (French
queue) which depended from the parchment. The seal is now placed in * corner ol the deed itself, but is still called
lire queue. The 'Q in the corner' is
therefore, the most important part, aa
it ratiHea the whole ♦ntents of the documents.
Man-of-War—Tlua Is a phrase applied
te line-ol-battle ships, contrary to the
usual rule in the English language, by
which all ships are feminine. It probably
arose from the historical fact that 'men
of war' were heavy armed soldiere. A
ship full of them would be called a 'man-
of-war ship.' In process ol time the
word 'ship' was discarded as unnecessary,
and there remained the phrase 'amen-
of-war.'
Cod Save tht Mark—Hotspur. In 1
Henry IV.' 1.3, apologising to the king
for not sending the prisoners according
to command, Bays the messenger waa a
'popinjay' who made him mad with his
lu'iiiianly way, and Who talked 'like a
waiting gentlewoman of guns, drums,
and wounrls (God save the mark!)'
meaning that he himself had been in
the brant of battle, and it wonld be nd
indeed if 'hie mark' was displaced by
this ceurt butterfly. The whole scope of
the speech is lost eight of by the ordinary
interpretation—'May thl soars of my
wounds never be effaced.' (Ood save
my scars). _, j.    _.

IN THEIR BUSTLES.
Thoy are now tlio Popular Hlillrig.rlnco for
'   Small Ilulliible Arllvloj,
Since Surveyor Beattie began to appoint women as inspectors of cusAms,
more attempts at smuggling have been
detected than ever before. Tho women
have shown groat zeal and aptitude for
the work, and the male inspectors, in
order to make as good a record, have
been exhibiting more activity than usual.
The newest expedient for smuggling is
the bustle. The bustle now required by
fashion is a capacious structure of wire,
and ocean travellers of the gentler sex
who desire to escapecustome duties hnvo
adopted the expedient of tilling their
bustles witii merchandise. .Deputy-Collector McClelland said recently tlmt
bustles were becoming the burden of his
lifo. It Beemcd as if every third woman
arrived from Europe had her bustle rilled
with dutiable goods, and be was nearly
distracted.
There was a large number of seizures
reported recontly. It seems that nearly
every woman who goes to Kuropo brings
back a meerschaum pipe for somo mule
friend. In the bustle of Fneulein Charlotte Weinmann,. a passenger on tho
steamer Trave, Inspectress Wcstoner
discovered two meerschaum pipe bowls.
Inspectress Lily K. Bricback found in the
bustle of Mrs. S. H. Harbrldge, u pass.'ii-
geronthe steamer City of Chester-, two
meerschaum pipes and 'one cherry-wood
pipe. On Fneulein Wclnmann's person
and in her baggago were also found thirty
yarda of Bilk, thirteen yards of velvet,
fifty yards of linen, three Bilk shawls and
many other articles of value. Some of
the stuff was concealed in her bustle.
Around Mrs. Harbridgo's waist wero
found two pieces of cashmere, and another piece was found sewed in the lining
of her skirt. In tho bustles and on the
persons of the Misses Evans, who arrived
on the Khineland from Antwerp, wore
found silks and velvets.
J. Bierman, who arrived Friday on the
steamer Trave, declared tbat he had no
dutiable goods. He was met on tbe dock
by a friend, who approached Inspector
O. Scherman and told him if he would
pass Bierman's trunks that gentleman
would make it all right with him il be
would call at his ofllce, corner of Broadway and Houston street. Tho inspector
examined Bierman's trunks, whicli were
found to contain the following dutiable
articles: Seven books, 2 boxes of medicine, 12 linen sheets, il cases draughtsmen's instruments, 0 tablecloths, 1 needle
case, 86 linen napkins, 12 towels, 1 pocket-
book, 72 linen handkerchiefs, G fancy
handkerchief boxes, 7 boxes toys, 1 card
case, 1 looking glass, 70 pioces ribbon, 15
dolls and 12 umbrellas. They wero
seised.
Inspectress M. S. Wilson also made n
seizure (rom a passenger on the Trave.
On examining the trunk of a Miss Wagner, sire discovered a false bottom, whicli
sho removed, and below it found the following articles: Three yards cotton velvet, threo pieces tr! silk containing IS)
17J and (21 yards respectively, 1 gold
bracelet. Miss Wilson then took tlie
lady _ a private room and searched her
and found 8 yards of woolen dress goods
concealed on ber person.

Hww a Chicago Man Got Into Parliament.
I was in London on the day that the
Gladstone Ministry resigned, a year or
two ago, and I had some odd experiences. I wanted very much to be present
at the session of the House of Commons,
because everyone believed there would
be extraordinary excitement.
I went to Mr. Wnllor, the American
Consul, and secured n letter to Mr.
O'Connor, the Consul, however, assuring
me that the chances wero agaiust me.
Me thought that il I could get the letter
into Mr. O'Connor's hands I would succeed, but he did not believe that I could
get the letter to Mr. O'Connor. I wont
to the Parliament house to find a great
crowd of prominent and distinguished
people endeavoring to gain admission.
Tlie dillienlty, I soon discovered, wus to
have the three Or four lines of policemen
give miy attention to the letters carried
by persons who presented them. I noticed, however, that messengers and telegraph hoys went through the lines without being questioned or detained. I am
not a very largo man, and I at once determined to go through the three lines of
policemen in tbe character ol a messenger.
I buttoned my coat, put my hat on the
back of my head, ran around until I got
into a fiinie then taking O'Connor's letter
in my hand made a dash for the door.
To the first policeman who' attempted to
check me I showed the letter addressed
to Mr. O'Connor, and made vehement
and hurried explanation to tlie effect that
the letter must bo in Mr. O'Connor's
hands before the session opened. He
hustled me along to the next line and
the next man bustled me to the next,
and I went through the door, pushed forward by the man who stood on guard.
Once Inside I asked lor Mr. O'Connor,
presented my letter, explained how I got
in, ud he, laughing pleasantly over the
incident, gavo men good sent, and I beard
the "famous debate to great advantage.
I was one of tho few Am ririins who
gained admission that day lo the House.

was demanded. Misi Whitney delighted everyone with her singing, and
the same can bo said of Miss Evans.
Both ladies have remarkably sweet
voices, thoy sing pleasantly and with
ease and are remarkably free from af*
fectation. John Caasidy us an English
dude and step dancer was very good,
especially in tho latter in which he
might be said to excel. Miss Pearl
did her share towards the merriment

A Mysterious Affair.
Wook boforo last some person, dur-
tho  night, entered tho residence of
Mr. T. R. Pearson, ou Royal Avenue.
Entrance was effected by breaking a
pane of glass iu tho kitchen window.
The housebreaker seems to have gono
all through tho houso, which was unoccupied at tho time, but the object of
his visit remains a profound mystery.
Nothing was taken away except an old
felt hat.   The burglar wont into the
bedrooms upstairs, but made no search
for valuables, as the drawers and dres-
sing stands  wero undisturbed.    He
turned down the clothes of ono bed,
Bat down on the sheet, and afterwards
got into tho bed with his boots on. He
must have been sitting in the gutter
before  entering  the house, judging
from thb  marks he left.   The bed
clothes of the other bed were undisturbed, but on this also he left the
marks of dirty boots and trousers.   A
small centre table in the parlor was
upset, apparently by accident, and a
eard-receiver which stood thereon was
broken.     This is the only damage
dono.   Tujo dresses belonging to Mrs.
Pearson had beon carried from the
bedroom upstairs and left on tho parlor sofa.      Every person acquainted
with the  circumstances is completely

ending Oct. 14th are of a very satisfactory nature, Bhowing as they do an
increase ovor the  previous week of
718,350 lbs. in the amount of freight

in the receipts during the same time.

Amountof freight rcctived,859,2901bs.;

the above tigures the amount, of merchandise and other freight handled is
enormous, considering   the conveniences and the numbor employed on
the staff of tile freight department
here.   At present the shed room for
receiving freight is far too limited and

The mayor of Vancouver has fallen
into the bad graces of the C. P. N.Co.
and has suffered an, Indignity at the
hands of one of the company's officers.
Yesterday afternoon Mayor McLean,
along with soveral of the oity aldermen
and a number of prominent citizens
went down tp the C.P.R. wharf to
visit the steamer Premier and extend
t welcome to it in the name ofthe oity
of Vancouver. Un the way to the
wharf a message was delivered to the
mayor, .aid to have been sent by Oapt.
Irving, stating that he wss not wanted
on board' until certain remarks made
by him (the mayor) were explained.
His worship, however, decided to make
tho intended visit, probably not sun-
posing the message wat really in earnest. Soon after the party got on board,
Monroe, the mate, went up to Mayor
McLean and ordered him and his I
friends ashore, at the ssine time using
language totally unocoasriry for the occasion. As this proceeding wss confirmatory of the message he had re-
ceived,the mayor and his friends withdrew from the steamer. This manner
of paying off an old score is scarcely to
be commended even supposing Mayor
McLean did use the language he is accused of concerning the company's
stesmer Princess Louise. The insult
wss direct, and as Mayor McLean
went aboard to welcome the steamer
in tbe name of the city of Vancouver,
and in sn doing representing every
citizen within the limits, the people of
the terminal oity will likely take tlie insult ts if intended to be general.
