A vary interesting letter by a
uicilieal man on "Cholera Germs and
Tbeii- Destruction" recently appeared
in the New York Times. The writer, referring to the acidity of healthy
gaatrio juice, relates how in 1861 a
doctor wu enabled accidentally to
teat the fact ihat if digestion i» go.
ing on properly the rice water discharges containing cholera gerins
may be swallowed with impunity.
. The affair happened in. a prison.
Some rice water discharge waB
placed in a vessel of drinking water,
and exposed to the sun in order to
facilitate the growth of germs. Whether designedly on the dootor's part
or quite accidentally, nineteen prisoners drank of this water. Five of
these were attacked by the cholera
and died, the rest escaped. The only
explanation that could bo given
was that these fourteen being strong
healthy men with digestive appara-
. tus in good order, the acidity of the
gastric juico killed the germs whioh
would otherwise have produced like
fatal results as in the other oases.
The same writer also gives somo interesting details regarding experiments tried iu 1871 as to reputed
remedies for cholera. Quinine,
camphor, opium, carbolic aoid (commonly so called, though not really
nn aoid at all), calomel, and chloral
were all tested on rice water discharges containing germs, but without any good results. The germs in
every case at the end of several days
were as lively as ever, and had even
multiplied themselves. As soon as
any dilute acid was used, however,
the case was entirely different. The
germs were killed instantly. The
experimenter proved that dilute sulphuric, muriatic, or acetic acids
might bo used with equally good
<!n"ect». Tannic nnd gallic aoids wore
nlso valuable remedies, and chlorine
water too. Chloroform apparently
killed nll the germs in u comparatively brief time, yet some of them
ciinio to life again when |>ut into
pure water.—Globe.

NUMBER 25
Tho work of the Bribery Commission ovidently draws towards a olose.
The additional evidence has thrown
no now light on the charges. But
the evidence of Sir David Macpherson completely exonerated himself
and the Government of whioh he is
a member from any suspicion of
complicity in what goes by the namo
of the bribery plot. And Mr. Meredith and Mr. Morris had no difficulty in clearing their skirts.: from
Mr. Moredith's evidence, it is plain
that hiB visit to Ottawa, at the time
the plot was going on, had no connection with any conspiracy. What
ever was done was the work of subalterns. Mr, S, Blake, as counsel
for the Ontario Government, was
not anxious to bring under enquiry
the conduct of more than the five
persons against whom the charge
had previously been made. It wu
not his intention to examine several
witnesses who had been summoned;
but Sir David Macpherson and Mr.
C. H. Mcintosh, M. P., insisted on
their right to be heard, aud they
were |ierinitted to tell what they
had to aay. Mr. John Shields, who
had been represented as the purse-
carrier, was present, but wu not
called. Other witnesses only appeared to bo told that their evidence
wub not requited, Mr. Blake announcing, on behalf of the Ontario
Government, that he had no other
witnesses to call. After Mr. Meredith had concluded his statement,
Mr. Blake expressed his entire confidence in ila truthfulness. The new
tactical more sprung on tho Com
uission during tho sitting was the
show made by Mr, Meredith of car
rying the war into Africa, A charge
against four members uf the Ontario
Government was put into the form
of n resolution, that they, knowing
that attempts wero being mado to
corrupt members of the House, induced these members "to approach
persona who wero said to be engaged
III this work for the purpose of inducing them to corrupt them," and
to entrap others who were not so engaged. The commissioners promised
that tite charge should be enquired
into; but the enquiry wiib adjonrned
till tho next sittings of tho commission, in the beginning of October.
This counter charge is based upon
tho evidence of members of the
House, whom the Conservative defendants declare unworthy of belief;
tha object of those making tho
chargo boing, presumably, to find
means of corroborating evidence
whioh they themselves hove boon at
some pains to discredit. It is a relief to have good ground of assurance that neither the Ottawa Gov
ernment nor the Ontario Opposition
had any hand in this miserable intrigue. Neither Wilkinson nor Stin-
son had shown auy desire to face the
commission. All attempts to reach
either of them by subpoena had failed ; and it looks as if they might
allow judgment to go by default.—
The Week,
A Lightning calculator.
A remarkable instance of rapid meats! calculation hu been discovered In
a young Polish boy named Paul Zizie-
ky, living in Eut Bridgeport. He hu
it low forehead, with hair growing down
to his eyebrows, is rather sleepy-looking and shambling in his movements.
But whenever his father asks him a
question relative .to numbers he at
once brightens up, becomes wwwk"t
excited;* and acts exactly ai a blaek-
and-tan dog does when hia master says,
"rats." A newspaper correspondent
recently asked hia father if it were true
that his son wu a lightning calculator,
Mr. Bizisky said, in answer: "Paul,
how many beans are there in this handful 1"
The boy at once commenced to dance
around the store snd became greatly
excited u hts father thrust his hand
into a barrel of beans, took a handful
and .threw them down in a corner,
where they lay scattered about. The
lad leaped into the air, and, before the
beans had touched the floor shouted
"1768." The beans were carefully
gathered and counted, and while this
wu being done the boy grinned and
waited. The result showed him to be
correct to a bean. He relapsed into
his ususl sleepy manner again. The
father then seizod a handful of oats
and threw them in a heap upon the
counter. ' 'Paul," said he, "how many
oats)" The boy again jumped to his
feet, devoured the oats mentally, and
instantly shouted "2830." It took a
long time to count them, but the
number again wu found to be correct.
Next his father seized a half filled
pail of water and uked the boy,
"How many cubio inches of water in
the pail)" The boy sized it up with
his eyes and quickly shouted, "116."
A careful computation proved the. remit to be right.
Other wonderful answers were given,
always in an excited manner, and no
comparison of his manner at this time
seems to be u that of the excitement
of a dog when "set on" by his master.
At each and every successful answer
the same doleful expression returned.
It is understood that several New
York gentlemen have become interested in little Paul, and that he will
be well cared for in that city.—"Won

Keeping Roots In Winter.
Peter HenUuraon says: One of the
seeming obstacles to raising root crops
on a large scale is the lack of a proper
place fur keeping them in winter. A
general impression prevails that they
must be kopt in cellars or in a root-
house specially built for the purpose.
There is really no necessity for a special
root-house, as the simple and cheap
method of preserving them in pits in
the open ground is far better, I will
briefly describe mv plan, which I have
practised with all kinds of market garden roots for twenty h've years. Man*
gols, in this section of the country,
are dug up towards the end of October, or just after our first slight frost.
They are then temporarily secured
from severe frosts bv placing them in
convenient oblong heaps, say three
feet high by six feot wide, and are
covered with three or four inches of
soil whioh will be sufficient protection
for three or four weeks alter lifting;
by that time, say the end of November, they may be stowed away in their
permanent winter quarters. For turnips and carrots there is less necessity
for the temporary pitting, as they aro
muoh hardier roots, and may be left
in the ground until the time is necessary for permanent pitting, if time
wiU not permit of securing them temporarily.
The advantage of this temporary
pitting is, that it enables them to be
{juickly secured at a season when work
is usually pressing, and allows tho
period of their permanent pitting to
oo extended into a comparatively cold
season. This is found to be of the
utmost importance in preserving all
kinds of roots; the same rules regulating the preservation in winter apply
as in spring sewing. While in this
section of thu country it must be done
no later than the end of November, in
some of the Southern States the timo
may bo extended a month later, while
in place* where the thermometer does
not fall lower than 25" above aero,
thero is no need to dig up any of these
roots at all, as that degree uf cold
would not injure them.
The permanent pit is made as foi-
lows: A pieco of ground is chosen
where no water will stniul in the win-
ter. If not naturally drained, pro*
vision must be made to carry off the
water. The pit is thou dug four feet
deep and sis feet wide, and of any
length required. Tho roots are then
evenly packed in sections of about
four feet wide, across the pit, nnd
only to the height of the ground level.
Botween the sections a space of half
a foot is left, which is filled up with
soil level to the top. This gives a lection of roots four feet deep and wide,
and four feet long, each section divided
from the next by six Inches of soil,
forming a series of small pits, holding
from six to twelve barrels of runts,
oue of whioh can be taken out with*
out disturbing the next, which is separated from it by six inches of soil.

Wrong Again.
In its last issue tho Guardian
returns to tlio subject of coroners'
inquests, and attempts to convict
the present government of being tbe
"patrons of assassins." Our cotemporary is entirely wrong, and must
have known it, for we pointed out
Bome time ago thnt the coroner's in
quest law is the work of the Walk-
cm • Beaven government, and the
present government had nothing
whatever to do with it. We believe
tho law should be amended, and
haeve so stated; bnt the organ must
see tlmt when it says "tho law tbat
prohibits the holding of ft coroner's
inquest was prepared delibovately to
shield assassins," it dura not touch
the present government at all. Tho
law was prepared by tho into government, in the praises of which tlie
organ never became weary! Before
throwing stones it would bo wise to
consider whore they might strike.
Going Back.
There are two features in connection with the provincial exhibition
now being held at "Victoria which
we are sorry to see. The first is
the horse racing*/. There aro many
different, opinions respecting .horso*
racing, "but there can be no difference of opinion upon the kind of
racing that has hitherto prevailed
at our provincial exhibitions. Those
who ought to know do not hesitate to say that the races havo
always been a complete swindle, in
which the chances were in favor
of the most unprincipled jockeys.
Such proceedings have nothing to do
with an agricultural exhibition, and
should have been discountenanced
by the directors. When tho government offered a grant uf $1000
towards the exhibition last yenr it
was with the express understanding thnt there should bo no horse-
racing in connection with the show
—and there was none. We are
sorry tlie people of Victoria have
not followed the example of New
Westminster, and discouraged this
demoralizing entertainment. The
othor feature to which we object is
the granting of a license to sell
intoxicating liquors on the exhibition grounds, We beliovo there is
no person who will not admit
frankly that only evil can result
from bringing this pernicious traffic
on to the show grounds. The ten*
dencies to rowdyism in some people aro strong enough at best,
without placing special temptations
in ■ their way. It will uo doubt
be urged by the directors that the
horso racing and whiskey selling
bring money into the treasury.
Upon the same principle they might
license any other form of evil.
There was neither racing nor liquor
selling connected with thu exhibition
last year, and it was unquestionably
a success. It is unfortunate that
tbe precedent then established should
have been neglected by tbe present
directors, Moral influences are
always worthy of more consideration than financial results.
Straining al Gnats.
For several days the Victoria
Standard has been worrying itself
and its readers because Mr. Noah
Shakespeare, M. P., was appointed
one of tho selectors of jurors, The
Standard professes to believe that
this appointment is au outrage botli
upon the dignity of Mr. Shakespeare
und the rest of the country, This
view has been combatted by the
other three Victoria dailies, and we
think the SkmtlanPe position can
not be made good. Indeed, it offered
no argument whatever in support of
its assertions, but contented itself
with declaring that it wus never intended that a member of the Dominion parliament should receive
positions of emolument from ttio
loBtt) government. Tho emolument
itself is a most trivial affair, amounting to only ten er fifteen dollars a
year, but it may be that the Standard does not know the intention
of our laws much better than its
cotemporaries. This incident, how
ever, is a fair sample of the course
whieh has been pursued for many
months by the Stamlard and its
mainland echo. Tliese two papers
have'been seizing upon the most
trivial matters ami endeavoiing to
magnify them into mountains for
tha purpose of poisoning public
opinion. It shows that these party
organs must find very little comfort
in the circumstances in whioh they
fiwl KltwoMlvea. They have voluntarily Maumed a position of extreme
and unreasonable hostility towards
a government whioh posseaiee the
confidence of a large majority of
the people. In this extremity tbey
seem desperately anxious to show
cause for their hostility; but failing
to find any substantial ground of
accusation, they catch nt straws and
howl violently whenever thoy fancy
their finger rests upon something
out of which ingenuity might evolvo
a grievance.' Politically, thoy aro
like vultures looking always for
carrion. Whilo most of the other
newspapers of the province aim ut
supplying their readers with news,
and discussing such questions as may
be for the public good, theae organs
of party bitterness feed their supporters with only such pabulum as
savors of scandal, They aro not
honest. To suppose such a thing is
consistent only with supposing that
their minds are incapable of grasp
ing nn intelligent idea, and we shall
not do thein so great an injustice..
The commission's Report.
There nre many conflicting rumors
respecting tho probable nature of
thu report whieh is now being prepared by the Chinese commission.
Beforo Ionvitig this provinco the Hon.
Mr, Chapleau stated that the commission hud obtained evidence on
ough to convince it lhat some restrictive measure ought to be intra
tluccd into parliament. After returning to the eust the secretary of
the commission said they Imd "no
opinion" as to the. recommendations
which would be made in the report.
Since that time the newspapers of
Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal have
been publishing statements and opinions whicli by uo menus agree either
as to the kind of report we may expect or the sort of legislation needed.
It is generally conceded that the
Chineso are n nuiBince, but it is not
stated that repressive legislation
would meet with anything like universal favor. The Globe, for example, does noc think it would be
proper to make a law which would
discriminate against the Chineso. A
restrictive law, it says, must "apply
to nll nationalities equally." Surely
the Globe must know that this is
nonsense. Australia hns passed re
pi'essive laws which affect the Chinese only, and so has the United
States. Canada can do so if she
sees fit, and we are not without
hope that she may sec the growing
necessity for such a measure before
the evil is beyond remedy. The
people of the east have extremely
imperfect notions about the Ohinese
ovil. They know nothing of Chinamen except us curiosities us rare
almost as white elephants. They
have never boen brought face to face
with these people us competitors,
aud found their labor and their
life passed over to the hands of
slaves whose existence is a menace
moro than on advantage to the state.
Their noses have not been annoyed
by the odors which greet one in
the Chinese quarters, and their eyes
have not witnessed tho moral pollution which follows them into every
community. Tho plague is too fur
off to excite alarm: it is viewed with
indifference. But the people of
British Columbia have feh and seen
and smelt these things tor years,
until they have become nauseated.
They bave been appealing earnestly
through every legitimate avenue for
protection, but the appeal has met
with no response further than the
appointment of a commission of enquiry. Thut commission has been
conspicuously a failure as fares taking evidence: if it fails also in results wc may have to try other measures moii) drastic to accomplish our
purpose. Whatever differenco of
opinion muy exist respecting the
utility of Cliinnmen in British Columbia, we believe it is unanimously
conceded that there ara now in tho
country quite enough for any possible
requirements in the wuy of slave
labor. The fact that hundreds of
them have boen lying idlo all summer shows that tho supply is in ex<
cess of the demand. When the
C. P. K. workr have been completed (wliich wilt be next year),
thousands of Ohinamen now steadily employed will bo thrown out of
work. Tho condition of the white
In borers will thon become very much
more desperato than it hns ever been.
If fresh immigration of Chineso
wero prohibited at once, there would
be stock enough left in the province
to lust for many yeurs: if it is not
prohibited, this province will Buffer
beyond anything of which eastern
newspapers have the faintest conception.

A Simple Device. — An ingenious
Englishman, Mr. C. Maynard Walker,
hns patented an invention whioh will
mako use of the force of tbe tides as a
motivo power. In tho Health Exhibi-
tion in London thero is a model show-1
ing the working of tho system iu lifting
sewage from tho lowest level of tho
drains and discharging it into the sua.
Two or threo tanks with inflow nnd
outflow pipes, and one ball and socket
valve, are the only appliances ordinarily required. Ono of the tanks must be
so fnr bolow tho high water lovol ns to
give a sufficient "head" to overcome
the resistance of the work to bo done.
This simplo system can bo used to supply water to towns, ond by a slight
modification a turbine can be used
which will, of course, supply power
for nny kind of machinery. If the invention prove as workable as Mr.
Walker expects, it must rank among
tho most importnnt of the century,

J. E. Insley, stating that he was prepared to remove debris and construct

had withdrawn from tho aula tho lots
asked for public purposes, and suggesting that a butter site than lot 14, block
24, might be hnd for city hall, u portion of Merchant Square, for instance.
Messrs. Woods & Turner's tender for
surveying squares ($225) hub accepted.
The following accounts were received:
Telogrnphs, $1.95; Columbian, $17.50;
board of health, $2. The mayor reported that the Indian house pulled
down belonged to a vory bad Indian
woman named Lucy, and that all valuable contents had been first removed.
On motion thu clork was instructed to
inform Mr. Alkinson that thu oouneil
would not allow nny compensation in

Editor Columbian.-—As quito a number In British Columbia have beeu making enquiries of me and others in this
vicinity, how times aro on Skagit River
and Paget Sound generally, I would ask
permission of you to give a statement of
affairs in your widely circulated paper,
I must say that times are extremely dull
on Skagit river, and in fact the whole
Sound. Old Puget Sounders say that it
ia the worst they ever saw, and I know
myself that times are a great deal worse
than they were five yenrs ago, as I was on
Puget Sound then. There are ten working men iu the country now for every
one that there was then. There is scarcely anything doing here now. Hop-picking and harvesting is about all that there
is; the former is mostly done by Indians
as the whites cannot compete with them.
Harvesting wages are from SI to 81.50
per day, and this is one of the worst harvests experienced by the farmers for a
number of years. In a great mauy
places largo quantities of grain lio rotting on the fields. Heavy crops and
raiu do not work well together at all.
Logging is almost suspended and the loggers aro not able to pay their men on
account of there being no demand for
logs. The biggeBt portion of the camps
men have a piece of paper (aa order),
some a lien; and some of them I have noticed offering to sell their orders or liens
for half what they call for, to raise a
little money to leave the territory. Some
ore desirous of going to B. C, bnt moat
of them go to California. There are hundreds of men in the hotels all over the
Sound with not a cent to their names-
men who came from the east lust spring
with little means on the strength of tho
Seattle newspaper boom. Those who
aro in B, C. with even small wages had
better stay and be contented with their
lot. B. C. ia more of an even thing, but
on Puget Sound It is either feast or famine. It is here as the Dutch doctor
said, an extreme case. Hoping to be
back to B. C. in a few days, I remain
yours, ke.,

INTERESTING BUDGET OF TELEGRAMS.
■ New York, Sept, 21.—-Morning papers
contain the following Interesting cable
specials from European capitals:
AN IMt'EIUAL MEKTINO,
The newspapers still continue to publish columns of contradictory and imaginative accounts of tho imperial interview. The statement is repented so
aftcn as to be perhaps credible tbat one
great object was to prepare menus for a
gradual disarmament. The despots are
said to tie getting afraid that their vast
forces will be the cause of a frightful increase of poverty, and therefore socialism, to whioh thoy are leading, and some
doubts,are even felt whether in tho coming conflict between the throne and the
revolutionists tho troops could be relied
on. English pessimists draw the conclusion from the reconciliation of Austria and Russia, that Russia has been Induced to abandon her designs on the
Balkans, in consideration of being allowed to do whnt she likes against England in Central Asia.
WOLSKLBY AS1» GORDON,
One small crumb of comfort extrnctcd
from tho telegrams of General Gordon,
by the ministerial organs, is tliat ho is iu
favor of the Nile, and uot of the Suakim-
Berber route. Doubts are now felt whether, oven if WolsoloY gets to Khartoum,
he will be a'de to induce Gordon to lea\' ,
all his resolves still being apparently in
favor of retaining this territory, nulcss it
be taken in hand by tho sultan of Turkey, lt is not known whether Wolseley
has, among his other powers, that of
arresting Gordon, but it is thought by
cynical observers that boiuo sueh authority will be required to dispose of f Mad-
stone's wliite elephant.
PIQUED AT AMERICAN JOURNALS.
The Paris press has taken a uow tack,
and Is new abusing the United Stat s almost as savagely ns it does England.
The lender of the crusade ts the Paris
mouthpiece of Wnldeck llosioau, minister of tho iuterior. Tho cause of the
angry criticism is editorial and cable
comments on tlio Chineso expeditiou, It
se^ms as if silly reason for journalists
had located itself permanently in. Paris,
where no suspicion is too absurd, no folly
too egregious to serve as a basis for an
editorial
ENllLANlj'fi INFERIOR  NAVY.
The Pall Mall Gazelle is publishing -u
series of sensational articles, designed to
show tlie deplorable condition of the
British navy, which is stated to be' for
inferior to that of. France. The Gazette
declares that the boasted supremacy of
England on the seas will require the expenditure ot £50,000. The opinions of
many naval experts in support of these
statements aro published daily in the
form of interviews and letters.
A OIIANUE FOR IRELAND.
It can bo definitely stated that there
will soon be a change In the lieutenant-
governorship of Ireland, It is certain
that Earl Spencer will retire, uot later
than noxt year, and it ia quite possiblo
that he may resign within a few weeks.
It ia reported that the Mnrqnis of Ripou,
who has just resigned tho viceroyalty of
India, is to succeed Spencer. This statement is doubted, in view of Lord Ripon'a
delicate health, but the tact that ho is
an ardent Catholic might make the appointment an exceedingly judicious one,
RUSSIA'S OREAT OOLD FIELDS.
M. KuttkofT, a well known Russian
journalist, teclares that what California
is to America Caucasus might be made
to Russia, nnd asserts that with a small
expenditure of money the mines of Caucasus would furnish as much gold as one
would like. Meantime attempts are
being made to boom au ■ international
railway across the two continents, and
enthusiasts are already dreaming of the
time when a journey between Paris and
Pekin can be accomplished in twelve
days.
s       ENGLAND'S BOLD STEP IN EOVPT.
The action of Lord Northbrook in
Egypt, iu suspending the law of liquidation, tins raised a storm of protests in
Paris and Vienna, As n matter of finance there can bo no doubt that the-,|
actiou was an excellent step to take, but
England had no right to take it without
the consent of all the powers which
made the law. France will move heaven and earth to get another conference
and block tlie English polioy.

Prohibition in Ihe North-West.
Correspondence of tlio Toronto,Woek,
Is the law preventing the free importation of intoxicating liquors into
the North-Wost Territories a failure?
This, if not the question of tho hour
in the territories ia without doubt, a
leading onu; and I am strongly of the
beliof that it is not a failure, Tho lo*
cnl politicians, it iB true, are making
the question of the manufacture and
sale of the lighter ales and beers a
popular issue. Two opposing candidates for tho North-West Council,
Messrs. Geddes and Oswald, in an election for the newly created electoral
division of Calgary, though differing
on many othor issues joined hands np
ou the matter of beverages in order to
catch a certain vote. They contended
that the permit system is abused to
such an extent as to justify its repeal.
Tho) employed strong language, and
asserted that it is humbug and it
Bhould be abolished; but I have very !
good reasons for knowing that much of
their crusade against the permit system wsb the very essence itself of humbug, if thero is any such theory as
that. It is erroneouB tu suppose that
permits are granted   plentifully and
firomiscuously. My investigations
end mo to tho conclusion that it is
easier to upply for a permit than to
get one. Lieut.-Governor Dewdney
does not grant every application, as a
good many residents of Calgarry know
of their own personal experience. Applications aro frequently refused.
Sometimes unjustly, perhaps, but not
often. It is to be expected that those
who wish to engage in the traffic of
strong waters will continue to de*
nounce a law that is not only a check
upon intemperance, but that is really
a prohibition of the business. Iu order to make out a case, the permit
system is attacked; but if the permit
system is injurious let it be abolished
and complete prohibition take its
place. Will this suit the man who
wishes to have whisky as free as watorl
I do not hesitate to say it will not.
Nothing short of the abolition of any
restrictions will suit the considerable
class who And in the traffic a congenial
and profitable occupation. They are,
therefore, incapable of giving an im*
partial opinion ns to tho working of
the permit system.
If I am asked: la tho Prohibitory
Act in the North-West Territories be*
uelicinl to tho people of the territories?
I must, without hesitation, say that it
ia. If the satisfactory operation of a
law ia to be judged by its effects, prohibition, oven under the permit system, is most beneficial. There is n
total absence of the ensteru scenes and
squalor. Everyone knows thut liquor
is a contraband article, und although
it is smuggled into the country in
small quantities by Montana traders
aud others, thoso engaged in the traffic
require to bo extremely vigilant, and
their camps aro being continually
broken up by the Mounted Police,
thoir caches discovered and the contents
confiscated, so that tho illicit dealing
has tu be carried on during a running
Ore, ns it wure, from the officers of tho
law. The typical Biilooti of the Western Stiles is to bo found in the North-
West, but thoro is an eloquent abituucu
of tipsy men, and that which makes
men tipty. Temperance drinks, called
beer and porter, tho latter out of courtesy, oud having thu color of thu genuine article, aru the prevailing beverug-
es, Billiard tables occupy a considerable Bpaco, but no mm is ever seen
drunk in n saloon, and very rarely out
of it. These ure ihu effects of prohibition in this new country.
Some yoars ago in Portland, Maine,
in ono of the lending hotels one had
to climb to the garret iu order to interview the bar, and then it wiib thu
"family jug," kept for medicine purposes; but you tuny climb a hotel here
to tlie i;arret, and descend even to thu
cellar, and not find even a family jug
ormseeratuil to medicine purposes. In
Maine thu civil authorities oarried out
thu law, or 1 should Bay pretended to
do so. In the north-west, territories
tlie ni'-uiited police nro thtriigoiits of
tho law; nnd grim and inexorable thoy
are too, in its execution. Nenr tho
40th parallel, ill the Red Kiver valley,
it is not uncommon to meet dozens of
intoxicated Chippewas, evon women
and boys. During a period of many
.weeks in this district I have not suon
nu intoxicated Indian or squaw, and
there uro hundreds of them camped
itt the vicinity of Calgary. The visitor is frequently informed that ha may,
obtain all the strong drink ho wants at
$5 per bottle, but thero is more boost
than truth in this: the promoters of
tho falsehood aro interested iu belittling the agents of thu law, aud of
underrating its enforcement.
•It is the custom to abuse thu government for nearly everything good or
bad iu tho north-west territories; but
if there is anything for which thoy are
deserving of just credit, it is in the
way the Public Works' act has been
enforced, and also the Supplementary
act. Many hundreds of miles of rail-
way built, and not a man killed
through intoxicating liquor! Compare this with construction on tho
Northern Pacific railway, to the south,
where intoxicating liquor was more
plentiful than necessary provisions. I
am in no way identified with nny associations having prohibition or temperance as their motto; but if I may
judge from tho eflects of prohibition
hero in these territories, I can surely
say that it will bo a dark hour when
the liquor restrictions are swept away.

NEWS FROM AU PART8 OF THE WORLD,
Nkw York, Sent. 14.-A Time*' London cable special says: Paris is given
over to a delirium of Knglish denunciation, f Ann which' not oven the gravest
aud wisest seem able to escape. Articles
are daily printed over signatures wliich
the whole world respects, breathing vengeance and slaughter. Among many
others a former minister and vice-admiral
published a letter showing how England
can best be attacked and mapping out
campaigns for a war. The English papers say less now than they said a week
ago, but the English people aro very
angry, and it wonld take only a slight
hitch iu Egyptian affairs or an injury to
English interests in China to raise tlio
biggest kind of a war cloud there.
London, Sept, 14.—-News from Egypt
continues to be far from encouraging.
There is a general impression that the
route by the Nile will prove far more
difficult than auybody anticipated. Sir
Samuel Baker and other professional
alarmists are vailing for a second expedition by land, and tlie St. James Gazelle
Interprets the general feeling of its fob
lowers by scornfully describing tho ex*
pedition as "Lord Wolsely'a water
party." The government is sending
16,000 pounds of dynamite to Egypt,
with a view of exploding a passage tor
ihe boats through the Nile cataracts.
The Army and Navy Gazette declares
thst it is the opinion of every man who
knows the Nile, that tho boats which
bave boon ordered by the government
are useless. A more wicked waste of
money has never been committed. Tlie
monstrous armada is only fit for tire-
wood.
Cairo, Sept. 14.—General Wolseley
will start for Assitoot to-morrow. The
orders issued in Cairo will point towards
an intention to use the desert route from
Deliheh to Khartoum, lu cose the Nile
route fails. Agents are scouring upper
Egypt, buying camels. Over 30,000 of
them will accompany the expedition.
A fight has occurred near Suakim between 4000 of Osman Dlgma's forces and
1000 friendly Arabs under Mahmoud.
Tlie latter tost his son and 14 followers.
It is feared the friendly tribes will be
driven to join the rebels unless the government quickly comes to their assistance.
Qdkbec, Sept. IS. — The Governor*
General, Lady Lansdowne, and suite
left here by tho 0:15 train this morning
for Toronto, Beforo taking the train,
Hia Excoileney and the militia minister
bad adieu to the Canadian voyanours on
board the Oceau King, which arrived
down from Montreal last evening, touching at 'I hrce Rivors, and bringing also
Lord Melgund and Major Denison, the
latter in command of the contingent.
His Excellency addressed the officers and
men of the contingent force in well
chosen words, Ho apoke of the dangers
of the Nile, but remarked that he did
not think they were any more dangerous
than our Canadian rapids. In reference
to Gordon, lie remarked that he waa a
man of sterling worth, whose name waa
a household word wherever the Biitish
flag waves, and he felt proud to Bee that
Canada was so fully represented in such
an expedition as thia. Ho stated that
Gen Wolseley, who had previously been
among our boatmen when on the Ked
River expedition, knew what' excellent
qualities our men were possessed of, and
it was partly through this that they had
so earnestly been asked to accompany
the expeditiou, and it was something of
which they should be proud; He paid
Bpecial tribute to tho Indians, anil apoke
at some length upon their natural qualities which fitted them bo much for the
present undertaking. Tho vice-regal
party and Hon. Mr, C'aion then left the
steamer amidst cheer after cheer. Lord
Melgund, who has been organizing tlie
whole expedition, remained on board till
the vessel drew up her anchor ready to
sail, which was about 1:30 p. in.
Paris, Sept. _0,—Qoub'ts says Baron
de Conrad, French ambassador to Merlin,
has informed Prime Minister Ferry that
Germany, Austria, and Russia have decided to warn the khedive of Kgypt that
the stability of his throne will be endangered if he c.utilities to endorse England's financial acts. In that cuse the
powers might support the restoration of
the Khedive Ismail Pasha as tho head of
tho Egyptian government.
Cairo, Sept, 22.—It is reported that
Et Mahdi intends to reinforce his troops
operating before Khartoum. Tho friendly Aiiiaras again defeated tho lfaii.lt-
wos, and the latter appealed to Osinnii
Digma for assistance. Tlio Amarus lost
th rty killed in thu enoouuter.
London, Sept. 22, — General Lord
Wolseley has telegraphed to tho war
otlice to stop-forward ins troops to Egypt
for the present. It Ib believed that the
expedition for the reliof of Khartoum
will be reduced to a flying column, owing
to tlie favorable news from Gen, Gordon.
Cairo, Sopt. 22,—A dispatch from tho |
French consul at Khartoum has beon received confirming previous reports that
the sie.e of that city lias been raised.
The dispntch furthor states that the
country in the neighborhood of Khar*
touin is freed from rebels and the obtaining of food supplies is comparatively
easy.
London, Sept. 22.—It is affirmed from
Cairo that the French consul there has
boon instructed by the government to
make a formal demand on Nubar Pasha,
Egyptian prime minister, for tho withdrawal of the letter issued en the 17th
Instant, suspending the sinking fund,
London, Sept. 22.—The reports that
the siege of Khartoum haa collapsed,
whicli reached Cairo from various sources,
are confirmed by official telegramB, Preparations for the despatch of a camel
layed only a fe-v days and will then proceed in the Erin.
London, Out,, .Sept. 22.—Thomas
Fawcett, a banker of tbis city and tho
head of several agencies in western Ontario, id in difficulties. It is known that
his check has been refused by the Bank
of Montreal. Dis liabilities are estimated at from $8,000,000 to $10,000,000.
It is stated that his several agencies carried discounts representing $00,000 eaoh.
San Fraucisco, Sept. 22. — James
Gordon Bennett, accompanied by Chas.
Nordhoff, of the New York Herald, arrived to-day. He was met at the ferry
by John M, Mackay, who later in the
day pointed out te him thu principal
features of the city. Toe train on which
he arrived narrowly escaped a serious
disaster. As it pulled out at Port Costa
station it ran into a train of wheat cars,
Mackay aud Dye, in Bennett's private
car, wero thrown to the floor, and Bennett was badly shaken, but managed to
keep his scat. Four wheat cars were
wrecked, and the engine of the passen-
S;er train damaged. No one was seriously
lurt.
- London, Sept. 23.- The British gun-,
boat Wasp was wrocked off Tone Island, I
on the northwest coast of Ireland, today, and 50 persons wero drowned. Tho
Wasp had a registered tonnage of 4U5
tons aud carried four guns.
London, Sept. 24.—A Shanghai dispatch to the Times states that the Franco
Russian alliance means the disintegration
of China and its partition between those
two countries. France taking the south'
oriy provinces ami Russia having China
as a recruiting ground for hur armies.
The two countries boing connected by
railways the alliance also moans a Franco-Russian preponderance in Europe,
and it would oe fraught with danger to
Germany. It also means extinction of
China trade, and it imperils all the English possessions in the east,
Paris, Sept. 24.—Soleil publishes an
article over tha signature of Mamie Her-
vie, the well knowu Orlcauist, iu which
the writer asserts that the relations between England and France are so strained that a rupture is feared. He expresses
tho hope that such a disaster may ue
averted.
London, Ont, Sept. 24.—The failure
of Thomas Fawcett, the private banker,
has had a depressing effect in Western
Ontario. A great portion of tlie banking
business in that section has been in the
hands of private banks, and that of Fawcett was one of the largest of theso. Besides the office in London he was interested in branch establishments at Watford, Arkona, Alvcrston, -Millbrnok,
Thorn bury, Dresden, Mitchell, Thames,
and other places, Fawcett says tho liabilities at a rough guess cannot be far
short of $800,000 or 9000,000. That estimate includes the liabilities of agencies
in which he is interested. He (eels satisfied that the assets aro tar in advance of
the amounts named. The failure, he
thought, is principally due to the dullness of the cattle trade in which hia different agenciea are very largely interested.
Genoa, Sept. 26.—Cholera is increasing to un alarming extent in this city.
Sixty-eight new coses are reported today.-
Natucs, Sept. 25,—Since tho outbreak

waa a veritable caso of leprosy.
Cairo, Sept. 25,—Tho diplomatic representatives of Germany, Austria, France
and RuBsia called separately upon Nubar
Pasha, tho Egyptian prime minister, today and presented an identical note. Thu
powers make a formal protest against the
action of the Egyptian government iu

sinking fund to the general Egyptian
treasury.
Toronto, Sopt, 25.—Richard 11. Fox
otNow York writes to ttie Malt signifying his willingness to give a purse of
95000 for a single scull race of five miles
with turn to lie competed for by Edward
Hanhui, Wm. Beach and John Teenier,
and in addition a championship trophy
of tho value of $2,500 to ue known as the

Hamilton, Ont., Sept. 25.—A great
labor demonstration and mass meeting
will bo held here October first. Workmen from all parts of the province will
take part. Resolutions will be offered
demanding the immediate stoppage of
Chinese immigration and tho expulsion
of all Chinamen who refuse to accept
civilisation and citizenship and an immediate recall of the immigration agents in
Europe and elsewhere and the expenditure of the money thus saved on public
works so as to give Canadians employ'
ment in their own country.
Toronto, Ont., Sept. 25.—Three Pull
man cars aud oue private car of chief
engiueer Honnaford, of thu Grand Trunk
express, for Montreal and Boston, lett
the track near Pickering station, between
Toronto and Whitby, last night, owing
te a broken frog.und went over a bank 25
feot high. At the time of the accident
it was very dark, and the rain was inuring down in torrents, The crash of the
rolling cars, tho shrieks of thu wounded,
coupled with the intense darkness, all
mado a confusion whioh it was terrible to
listen to. The horrors were multiplied
when chief engineer Hunuaford's coach
took fire.   The firo burned fiercely, de-
out of ten there will be no profit iu it.
Our supply of eggs in winter is very
limited, nnd it may be safely predicted
thut thu demand for fresh eggs will bu
insatiable for years te come. Tho
people who Bhould raise eggs iu winter
are those who do not and who will
not; for there is no duller class of
people in thu community, with reference to matters which require thought
and cliango of plan, or any plan at all,
than the farmers—that is, tliose who
have hens.
The difference of an egg laid by a
plump, healthy hen, fed with good
fresh food daily, and an egg laid by a
thin, poorly fed hen is as great as the
difference between good beef and poor.
A fowl fed on garbage and weak slops,
with very littlo grain of any kind, may
lay eggs, to be sure; but when those
eggs aro broken to be used for case,
pics, ifcc, they will spread in a weak,
watery way over your dish, or look a
milky white instead of having a rich,
slightly yellow tinge, A "rich egg'
retains its shape as far as possible and
yields to thu beating of tho knife or
spoon with muro resistance and gives
you tho conviction that you are really
beatin» something thicker than water
or diluted milk.

r REMARKABLE STORY,
(Continued.)
"And there's Hester to consult-
that is the most important," said Mrs.
John.
"To be sure, that's the most important; but I ean't see why she should
object," said Harry. "Why, she has
never Been any one, has she? I am
the unly man who has paid any attention to her. At Ellen's wedding there
were one or two, and that was only
once in a way. I don't say she likes
me, but sho can't like any one else,
can she? for Bhe haa never Been anybody."
"Not that I know of," said Mrs.
John; "but, Mr. Harry, girls are so
fanciful. You cannot be sure of them
in that way. They may have somo
ideal in their heads, though they havo
never seen any one—"
"Eh?" aaid Harry, making a largo
mouthful of the word, and opening
those blue eyes of his with the light
lashes. And, indeed, he did not know
much about that sort of thing. He
returned to the question without paying any attention to this strange piece
of nonsense. "There's nobody about
but the old gentleman, and Ned at
Aunt Catherine's. Sometimes I've
felt a little auspicious of Ned. Does
he come and Bee you often? He iB a
weat fellow for books and that sort of
thing."
"Mr. Edward Vernon," said Mrs.
John, a little stiffly, "never comes
here. Hester, Z believe, hox met him
at the Orange or elsewhere; but he
never comes here. I scarcely know
him, neither, of course, does she."
"Then," said Harry, taking no notice of the offense in her tone, but
bringing down his hand vehemently
upon his knee, "if it isn't Ned, there
is no one she can have seen, and the
field is all elear for me,"
"That is very true," said Hester's
mother, but her tone wad doubtful.
"At the same time," she continued,
"perhaps it would be well to let me
talk to her a little first, Mr. Harry,
just to see, before you said anything."
"If she doesn't want to havo me, I
don't wish to force her to have me,"
said Harry, his pride taking alarm.
"Force—oh, Mr, Harry, do you
think I would force toy child? And,
indeed, I couldn't;" cried Mrs. John,
shaking her head. ' 'She is far stronger
than I?
"She would be the cleverest of us
all," said Harry, admiringly. "I believe she is as clever as Aunt Gather*
ine. I dare say Bhe might even find
out dodges in the bank, like Aunt
Catherine did. Perhaps, on the
whole, it might be better if vou would
sound ber a bit, eh? and find out what
Bhe is up to. What she thinks of me,
for instance," said Harry, nodding half
with modesty, half with vanity. "Yes,
I should like that. I Bhould like to
be pretty sure beforo I committed my*
self. A man doesn't like to make a
fool of himself for nothing," the young
man said.
Mn. John thought it waa quite nat
urat. And, indeed, all her feelings
were enlisted on Harry's side, who expressed himself so beautifully. Whnt
better could happen to Hester than to
be thus uplifted to the heights of luxury and wealth, the White House, and
everything else that heart could desire, with a nice husband, so good-
looking, bo tall, so fair, and so anxtouB
to be kind to her mother? Her imagination, not her strong point on ordinary nccassions, was strong enough on
tins, to jump at all tho advantages of
the match with a rapidity which would
not have disgraced Hester herself. To
see her child tho mistress of the White
House was the very height of Mrs.
John's ambition. She did not feel
that the world held anything more
desirable. Her mind made a hurried
rush through the rooms, all bo familiar to her, and which Harry, uo doubt,
would remodel in preparation for his
bride. With what pride and happiness would she seo her child at the
head of the table where she herself
had once sat! It would be a return
more triumphant than any return in
person. And yet she would be there
too, the happy spectator, the witness
of it all. She saw, iu her mind's eye,
tho wedding, the beautiful clothes, the
phaeton, and tho high-stepping horses,
and perhaps a pony carriage which
Hester herself would drive. Alt this
in a moment, while Harry was telling
her that he would lute to be pretty
sure before he committed himself. Perhaps it was not a lofty sentiment, but
she felt it to be quite natural, A man
with so much to bestow had a right to
see hit way before him; and then, lor
Hester's own sake, it was far better
that ihe should not be taken by surprise. Sho was a perverse girl, and if
the young man walked straight up to
her without warning, and asked her to
marry him, the chances were that sho
would refuse, That was not a risk to
be run when bo much was at stake.
"If you will leave it in my hands, I
think you will havo no cause to regret it," she said, nodding her head at
him with the softest maternal smile.
"Yuu may be sura you will have my
good wishes."
They were both quite affected when
he took his leave.
"I feel suro we Bhould hit it off together," Harry said, warmly grasping
her hand; and the water stood in tier
eyes.   She could almost havo given
htm a kiss as he stood before her, a
little flushed and agitated with his
self-rovelation.    Indeed,  she would
havo done so but for that doubt about
Hester.     What  would  Hester say?
That was the one point upon whieh
doubt existed, and  unfortunately it
was the most important of all.   Thero
oould not be the least uncertainty as
to the many advantages of the match;
money, comfort, good position, good
connection, everything that can  be
wished lor in marriage, and with no
personal defects to be glossed over by
these advantages, but a fino young
man, a husband any girl might be
proud of.   Elation and gladness filled
Mrs. John's heart, when she contemplated that side of the question; but
when she turned to tho other a chill
cam* over her, a eloud that swallowed
up the sunshine.   What would Hester
•ayl   Oh, the perversenesa of girls,
tut never know what is good for them I
If It had been somebody quite ineligible, somebody without a penny, the
chances were that Hester would have
had no doubt on the subject.   Mrs,
John could not remain still after this
momentous conversation.    She went
from one window to another, looking
out. watching for her daughter's return,   She had heen vexed that Hester ihould have been so uncivil ns to
go away for no better reason than to
walk with old Captain Morgan, when
Harry wai coming, but she felt now
that thii con trad ic tori ness on the girl's
part had been providential.   How full
her head wu with thoughts and plans
how to apeak, and what to say, with
artful approaches to thu subject, mid
Innocent wilee by whioh to divert all
suspicion, and lead Hester unawares
toward that goal! She trotted upstairs and down, from one window to
another, framing dialogue after dialogue in her mind. She was astonished by her own powen as she did so.
If she ever had been so clever in
reality as ahe was in this sudden crises
of imagination, Bhe felt that it would
have made a difference in her whole
life. And one thing Mn, John had
the wisdom and goodness to do, in the
midst of her excitement, she kept
within her own house, and did not so
muoh as venture down to the veranda,
where she might have been seen from
the outside, and pounced upon by the
eager watchers, brimful of curiosity,
who wanted to know what it all
meant. Miss Matilda Yernon-Ridg-
way, as has been intimated, bad been
conscious of an internal admonition
that something critical, something decisive, something throwing a distinot
light upon the "intentions" of young
Harry, would happen this night. And
Mrs. John knew herself, nnd was
aware thut sho would never be able to
stand against the questionings of these
curious spectators. Her only safety
was in keeping out of their way.
Thus, not only her imagination, but
her moral faculties, her power of self-
control nnd self-denial, were strengthened by the occurrences of this momentous evening. She had not felt
bo important beforo since Hester was
born.
*      *      *      #.    *      #
Mrs. John had a long time to wait.
The old captain prolonged his walk,
ns he was too apt to 'do, beyond his
strength, and came home very slowly,
leaning on Hester's arm; -and then, as
■ every hinderance, when' poople nre
anxious, has a way of doubling itself,
Mn. Morgan sent a polite message to
say that Bhe hoped Mn. John Vernon
would uot object if she kept Hester to
supper. Mn. John objected greatly,
but sho was weak, and had never Bet
up her own will in the face of any one
else who made a stand for theirs. She
said, "Oh, yes, with pleasure," with a
pitiful little smile, to Mrs. Morgan's
maid. To deny Hestor anything (except the power of making a governess
of henelf and losing caste) was whnt
she had never done in her life. It
always gave her a little pang when her
child left her to eat her solitary meal
in the dark little parlor which nothing
would light up, but she had trained
herself to feel that this wus very
wrong, and that young people need
change. Hester was entirely unacquainted with the series of little sacrifices which her mother thus made for
her. If she thought of them at all,
she thought that the poor lady "did
not mind." Her old friends next
door wero not gay, but they talked as
Mrs. John was quite incapable of talking, and lived, though they saw nobody, in a wider atmosphere, a bigger
world, than any of the othen. The
old captain's stories, the people he had
Been, the experiences both these old
people had gone through, were like
another world to Hester. Her mother
was small and straitened, had Been
without seeing, and lived without living, In the days when Hester had
fuided her about by the arm, taking
ur whither she pleased, making new
eyes for her in the vividness of her
own, it wos enough for the girl to have
that' echo of all her sentiments, that
little objection generally ending with
agreement, that broken little stream
of faint recollections which her mother
would give forth. But Hester had
long ceased to form a ijart of that Rort
of dual boing which iB bo often made
by a mother and her only daughter.
To feel your parent smaller and sillier
thau yourself is Bad, A great many
young people do it without nny adequate reason, strong in their sense of
being the reigning uionurchs uf tho
present, while their progenitors belong
to the past. Perhaps, indeed, it iB the
nature of youth to take a pleasure in
such superiority. But that is very
different 'from the fuct of actual incapacity un the mother's part to follow
her child's thoughts or even to know
whnt she meant, Mn. John was very
well aware of it henelf, and declared
with a smiling countenance that young
poople liked change, and that she was
never so happy as when her child waB
enjoying herself, Aud Hester, though
shu was muoh more clover, accepted
all this, and believed and thought her
mother was quite contented with the
evening paper, or a book from the circulating library, and never missed her
when she was away. Shu misunder*
stood her silly mother far more than
that silly mother did her. The lesser
comprehended the higger, not the bigger tho lesser, as in the ordinary coune
of affain. Mra. John had a great
many sacrifices to make of which her
daughter was quite unconscious. And
to-night the poor lady folt it, as, with
her mind so full, she sat down at her
little solitary table, which she had
made pretty for Hester, There was
nothing on it more luxurious thau
cold meat aud salad, but the crisp
greenness of the leaves, tbe littlo
round loaf, the pat of butter in a silver dish which was oue of her relics,
the creaming glass of milk, all set out
upun a white cloth and lighted up by
the two candles, would, she had flattered henelf, call out an admiring exclamation when the girl came in out
of the dark, a little dazzled for the
first moment by the light. After she
had said "Oh, yes, with pleasure,"
Mra. John came in aud sat down and
cried. Such a pretty table laid out,
and, oh, for once, so much to sayl her
mind so overflowing, her news so all-
important! There could not be anything so oxiciting to talk about, that
was certain, on the other sido of tho
partition, and this provoked and tantalized sense of having herself far better entertainment for Hester than she
could be having, gave an insufferable*
ness to the position. At one moment
Mrs. John thought she must send for
the girl, that she could not put up
with the disappointment, but she was
much more used to putting up with
things than to asserting henelf. She
sat down very cheerlessly and' ate a
mouthful of bread and salad. To eat
alone is always miserable. Hester
was making the table whoro the old
Morgans sat vory lively and cheerful,
talking as she never talked with hor
mother. They sat and talked quite
late into the night. What with the
captain's stories and Mn. Morgan's
elucidations und Hester's questionings,
the evening was full of interest. It
flew away so quickly that when the
clock struck oleveu the girl sprang up
with a great sense of guilt. "Eleven
o'clock! what will mother say? I have
never been so late before," sho cried.
Thoy were all half proud of it. of
having beon so mutually entertaining.
"The poor little mother must have
felt lonely," Mrs. Morgan said, with a
passing compunction, when Hester
flew round the corner, watched from
tho door to bob that all was safe, by
tho maid; but the captain took no
notice.
