current Events and Opinions.
If ever country needed peace nnd
prosperity, surely that country is
France. Her debt is sotrcthing
appalling. When Napoleon "was
overthrown in 1870 the funded debt
of France wa,s 81,500,000,000. By
1873 it liad risen to §4,000,000,000
from the expenses of war and from
having hud to pay the indemnity
demanded by Germany. It is now
§6,000,000,000, or three times that
of the United States, und about
twice as much as thut of Britain.
Tins makes tho taxes in France
very heavy, and depresses the market valuo of her three per cents
greatly. If great care is not taken
she will be absolutely bankrupt
some of these days. Why not give
up all the wasteful fooling in Tonquin, Madagascar, and elsewhere,
nnd settle quietly down to her own
business?—Globe.
Divorces are actually unknown
among the Quakers, and this absence is accounted for by the extraordinary precautions employed when
two young persons desire to be
united in marriage. The parties
place their proposals of marriage
in a written form, which is referred
to tho society of which they are
members, and is first acted upon at
a "Preparation Meeting" thereof.
Tf all tho attendant circumstances
are in every respect in accordance
with tiie views of those present, the
proposal is approved, and is then
introduced at tho "monthly meeting," whero it is again passed upon
and a committee of investigation
into the characters, habits, and circumstances of the engaged twain is
appointed. These committees always consist of two members of
each sex. Tlio committee, after a
most thorough examination and investigation, makes its report, generally at the succeeding "monthly
meeting." This ends the preliminary arrangements, and the twain
are then at liberty to proceed in
the accomplishment of their marriage, a committee of two of each
sox being appointed by thc meeting
to see it orderly conducted, and the
marriage certificate delivered to the
recorder. As a rule, the impressive ceremonies aro generally conducted at tho home of the bride,
and occasionally in the "meeting
houso." At tho nuptial ceremonies
the certificate of iniirringo is given
to the couple, which, after receiving
tlieir own signatures, is in turn
signed by overy person present, and
frequently contains a hundred or
more names. Engagement or wedding rings are rarely given.—
Ilrooklyn Magazine,
A college professor of chemistry,
who had mndo a long study of
houso ventilation, said thut the
more he investigated it, tho less did
he feel that he knew about it. How
to sooure in our severe winter climate the warmth without vitiation
and pure air without draughts is a
problem that is not often solved in
a practical and practicable manner,
Tho use of open grates and fireplaces has done much to improve
matters,' but theso tiro by no means
so common as they ought to bo, and
they do not, save in a few cuses,
introduce fresh air as well ns take
out stale air. And this is one of
the greatest lacks in all the ordinary methods of house-warming.
• It is hardly too much to say that
no air can pass through thc common furnace, as commonly run,
without suffering a deterioration
that makes it unfit for "food for
the lungs." Steam heat is better
is some particulars, but persons
who are dependent upon pure air
soon feel nature's signals that something is wrong, in the burning
checks nnd dullness in the brain, in
a close room ovon slightly overheated from a radiator. Tho common need is tho introduction of a
supply of "uncooked" and un-
breathed oxygon from nature's great
reservoir outdoors. A strip of
board undor the lower sash, or, better yot, ono of the box ventilators,
admitting n supply of air betweon
the sashes and from the bottom as
well, serves an excellent purpose.
Tt is complained that theso "cool tho
room;" but, with tho ordinary heating apparatus, there should be no
difficulty in keeping the temperature at from 65 to 70 deg., and that
is warm enough for persons who
are not invalids, if they become
habituated to it. There would be
fower "colds" and much less suffering' from winter diseases if living
rooms were not kept so frightfully
hot. How rational peoplo can expect to stand without injury the
shook of passing frequently from
rooms heated to 80 deg,, or higher,
into  nn   outdoor air at tho zero
fioint, or oven 20 or 30 deg. above
t, is unexplninable.—ftoston Herald.

NUMBER 44
The Way of Transgressors.
Under the strict regimen of prison
fare and diet, Ferdinand Ward has not
Bhown any physical improvement since
his incarceration ei Sing Sing prison a
year ago. His pulse and vitality are
very low; hiB spirits are naturally depressed, and his general appearance
that of abject melancholy. YeBterday
was his second Sunday at Sing Sing,
Ab ho stood in line before going into
prayers, hia reluctant hand upon the
ahoulder of a burglar in front of him,
his own shoulder shrinking under the
pressure of the blood-stained hud
resting upon it. Ward's most intimate
friends would scarce have recognized in
him, bearing the stripes of crime,
bending under the weight of disgrace,
the dashing, arogant oracle of Wall
Btreet, whose name is associated with
champagne lunches and dinners galore,
and whose cheque wai good for 81,-
000,000 at sight. Ward's identity ii
completely lott in his convict'a garb.
Viewed from Mie rear he looktttke a
school-boy dressed up in his father's
polo suit. It is not until the wan,
emaciated face ib seen, with the tightly
drawn akin, the spectral eyes, the
pinched nose, and the colorlesa lipa,
the bony hands with the long skeleton
fingers, that any idoa can be formed of
the man's appearance. It iB the face
of misery, of disappointment, of de-
Bpair.-tf. Y. World.
A Great Apple Crop.
Whilo the beat winter apples have
boen so abundant and cheap this season in New England and parts of New
York that farmera could afford to pick
only so many as they needed for their
own use, there has been a good market for them in England. Ten thousand barrels shipped from this city were
sold in Liverpool a few days ago. The
English wholesale dealers paid $3 a
barrel for Greenings, $3.60 for Baldwins, and $4 for King apples, and the
entire ooat of picking-, barreling, shipping and delivering in Liverpool was
only $1,81.25, and 81.60, respectively,
bo that the exporter made a amall fortune in profit. These facts show that
there are some thinga which our Eastern farmers and dealers in fruit have
yet to learn. Hundreds of thousands
of bushels of tine apples havo been
left tu rut in Now England orchards
thia year almoBt within sight of railroad stations and only a few hours
from this port because no one wanted
thom, but n shrewd exporter aeut 10,-
000 barrels to England and pocketed
820,000 for his trouble. Perhaps the
farmers will learn by and by that a
"great apple year" is a blessing whose
magnitude they have not fully measured, even if the abundance of fruit
kills a greedy cow hero and there,—

SintiRiAN Caravans of Convicts.—
It ia nothing new in Russia to see a
band of convicts in their coano gray
uniform, with a largo orange-colored
cross covering the back, trudge wearily
along on their way to Siberia. But
these miserable caravans aro formed of
men only, female oonvicts boing generally conveyed by rail or steamer.
Somo eighty-four of these latter left
Odessa the othor day by the iteamor
Coatroma for tho island of Sakalhin,
on the coast uf Eastern Siberia. According to the Nome Vremya, thirty-
six of the womon were transported for
murder or attempted murdor of their
husbands, twenty-two of the thirty-six
being under the ave of twenty. Ono
bride of sixteen had killed her husband within the tirst week after marriage; another uf sweet seventeen
lived with him six months before she
did the deed, and a third of eighteen
was convicted for killing her husband
during the night by blows with a heavy
hammer. Which facts demonstrate
that, howover beneficial early marriage
may bo in other countries, in Russia
at least no woman Bhould bo allowed
to marry before alio ia twenty.—Pall
Mall Gazette.

A Stock Exchange Episode.—The
sixty days limitation of contracts
originated in ono of tho famous speculative ventures of Jacob Little soon
after the panic of 1857. He had sold
large blocks of Erie, seller's option, at
six and twelve months. The happy
family," composed of tho moat eminent members of the board, combined
against lum. The day of settlement
came; Erie shares had been run up to
a high figure.. At 2 p. m. the brokers
prophesied that the Napoleon of
finance would meet his Waterloo.    At
1 p. in. he stepped into the Erie office,
presented a mass of convertible bonds
that he hud quietly purchased in England, and demanded tho instantaneous
exchange of share equivalents fur
them. Tho requisition was met. Little returned tu Ina office, fulfilled his
contracts, broke the eomer, and waa
Wellington and Napoleon in one.
Tho convertibles were his Blucher and
night. To prevent the repetition of
suoh victories the preaent option limit
was adopted by the Exchange. —

Gen. Grant and Tobacco.—Who-
ther tobacco caused the cancer of Gen.
Grant's tongue is a quel tion which
may never be decided to the satisfaction of all, but that Gen. Grant advised others not to smoke can no longer bo disputed. Rev, S, H. Lee of
Vermont says that in 1880 he met t'te
Genoral in tho office of a Wall-street
banker, and during their conversation
inquired if it was true that he told the
boys in Girard College he was glad
they woro forbidden to smoke, becauae
if they did not learn while young they
would not be likely to do so in later
years. Not only did Gen. Grant answer in the affirmative, but ho declared
that "If I could have my way I would
lot nobody smoke until twenty-one
years of age," and added that "whatever it may do to men, it is certainly
bad fur the young." Hii words ahould
be often repeated by those who desire
to check the use of tobacco, whioh undoubtedly has become so great an evil
that it seriously injures vory many
people.

Park has been covered with parafllne

Now that Louis Riol lias been
decently buried, und tlie French
Canadians havo ventilated their
emotions by resolutions and effigies
nnd things, we hope no more will be
hoard about tlie mutter. It is foolish to attempt to make a martyr oi
this mnn. When he had poor Thos.
Scott iu his power, and butchered
liim in the most brutal way, Scott
Ijivaiiu* a true martyr and Riel
placed himself beyond the reach of
any reasonable and proper symp
thy. If lie hud committed no other
crimo during his whole life, this
monstrous piece of villainy would
justify his execution.
Wo called attention the other
day to one of our local cotempor-
ary's singular articles on the immigration pamphlet. Our cotemporary pitched like a fishwife into tho
provincial secretary bocausn of cer
tain things which appeared ill the
pamphlet calculated to attract people to this country. In the same
article he himself presented a more
glowing picture of the country's attractions than anywhere appeared
in the pamphlet which lie condemned. In his last issue our
cotemporary takes up nearly a column in an attempt either to excuse
or apologize for his inconsistency;
but in all that vast area of words
there is not one solitary particle of
proof or argument.
The New Oold Mines.
On the 90th of August an article
appeared in this journal in whieh
the opinion was expressed that the
gold mines of Similkittneen would
prove to be a valuable find. That
opinion has been perfectly justified
by subsquent events, and now tliere
can be no reasonable doubt of tho
richness and extent of these mines.
On the fourth page of tins paper will
be found the text of the report
just presented to the government
by Mr. Elwyn, deputy-provincial
secretary. Tins report is official,
and may be accepted as accurate.
Mr. Elwyn went up to Similkamcen
for the express purpose of making an
examination of these mines. Having had considerable experience in
practical mining and as gold commissioner, and being thoroughly disinterested, his statements are entitled
to very great attention and respect,
Tt will be seen by reference to the
report itself that, after a careful
examination, Mr. Elwyn asserts
that no newspaper report that he
has yet seen goes beyond the truth
respecting the richness of Granite
Creek, For four miles, extending
from the mouth of (Irauite Creek
up to near the forks, both sides of
the stream have been worked more
or less, and throughout this whole
distance, equal to 8 miles, the aver
age pay has lieen more than an
ounce per day to the hand. It is
quite probable that there is a considerable extent of territory still
unprospected whero eventually the
precious metal wil! be found in
large quantities, and no one can
really predict with any certainty
how far the mining camp will ex
tend before the ground has been
worked out. Wo sincerely hope
that Urauite Creek may prove to
be even richer than Cariboo, and
much more enduring. This province is about to enter upon a new
period of development in consequence of the opening of the Canadian Pacific Railway, and the addition of a rich aud extensive mining region just now to our other
great resources would lie most opportune. We are glad thot the
government has shown itself alive
to tho importance of these mines,
and has given to the public a report
on them from one so competent to
speak.
interview with ;i numbor of prom-
ini'iil citizens, and during thai interview said that his company had
really never seriously considered
flu1 question of railway connection
with tho sound. Moreover, lie
gavi! it as his opinion that whatever traflic there might be expected
from that region could be secured
for the C. P. R. much more cheaply
and satisfactorily by steamer than
by rail. A railway, he said, could
not be constructed except at considerable cost, and would only reach
a limited part of the sound country; but by steamer almost every
place could be conveniently reached
at a very moderate outlay. There
is certainly no wish on our part to
hinder the development of tho city
of Blaine, which lies close to the
boundary line between this province and Washington Territory; but
in the interest of truth, aud for
the purpose of preventing further
misrepresentation, we must protest
■publicly against tho utterances of
Mr. VanHorne being so distorted
as to justify the use of them that
has been made in tho advertisement
referred to. Of course the persons
who hold real estate in Blaine are
naturally anxious tt^got up a'boom,
and we have no wish to hinder
them in the employment of legitimate means for that purpose, But
wheu misrepresentations are resorted
to in the hope that persons who do
not know the facts may be induced
to invest, these people should remember that a day of serious reckoning may come. Port Moody is a
town site that was persistently
boomed upon misrepresented circumstances, and those who today
are sufferers from having speculated
there without first ascertaining the
actual facts may uow be counted
by hundreds. Wo hope this experience may not be repeated in
the case of Blaine. Let the city
be boomed if it is best, but let it
be done honestly.
-Booming lhe Oil) or Rlalue,
ln   the   Blaine Journal of the
19th inst. we notice a flaring advertisement in wliich "The New Westminster Branch of the C. P. R, to
bo   built' to  the   boundary   line"
stands  out very conspicuously in
large lotters.     After that wo find
the   following   declaration:   "The
president of the Canadian Pacific
Kailway  stated   in  an  interview
with   prominent citizens of   Xew
Westminstor that the C. P. R, syndicate Imd   determined upon connection with nn American system
of railway at the boundary line at
Semiahmoo Bay."    To our readers
we need scarcely say that Mie president of  the O.  P.  R. never said
anything of  the sort.    The vice*
prwident of the company hod an
Hallway Management.
Nothing definitely is known yet
about the future management of
this end of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. It was announced lately
by the Victoria papers that Mr.
H. H. Abbott, C. E., and Mr. tf.
Cambie, C. E.( would take the management upon the relinquishment of
it by Mr. Onderdonk on the lst
prox. Tins, we believe, is not exactly true. It is understood that
Mr. Abbott will become superin
tendent of the western division,
but will not assume thc duties of
that position until spring. In thc
meantime it is believed that Mr.
Haney will remain, as he has been,
manager of the road, and will run
it in the interest of the Canadian
government until it has boen finally
taken over by the syndicate. It is
very well understood that the syndicate has refused to accept the
road between Port Moody und
Savona in its present state, because
it has not been completed according to specifications. The government seems very anxious to take
tlie road ofl' Mr. Onderdonk's hands,
nud thc announcement that Mr
Onderdonk will dispense with the
services of all the railway and telegraph employees on the lst prox.
would seem to indicate that some
arrangement has been made between him and the authorities at
Ottawa. It-Ms said that the syndicate engineer who made sucTi a
minute examination of the road
some months ago" reported that
there were many parts of it whicl:
did not como up to tho requirements
of the specifications, and if the
syndicate takes over the road in its
present slinpo it will certninly be
on condition that the deficiencies
shall be made up by the government, or that a sufiicieiit nllowance
be made to cover thom. At the
present time we do not know wlmt
kind of service will bo maintained,
or how far it will reach. Tho
latest announcement gives one train
a week each way, but it is not believed that this will lust more than
a vury brief period. The train arrives at Port Moody so late on
Friday night, and leaves so enrly
on Saturday that it will be quite
impossible for the mail clerk to sort
the lettees and papers bofore reaching Port Hammond without working all night. It is a pity the
managers of the road did not think
it worth while to let the public
know something of the probabilities
thnt lie bofore them, The sorvice
is shunted about without warning
until ono is quite unable to calculate what may come next, and serious inconvonience and loss aro the
result. It would cost very little to
advertise judiciously the changes
about to bo made in the time-table,
and such information given by authority would be most welcome to
the public.

No Railway Service.
By Telegraph,
Yai,k, Nov. 27.—Word has beon received here to-dny from Ottawa that
it is quite possible there will bo no
train service on the mainland after
Monday until next spring. Mr. Tingley is in town, and, rumor has it, to
make arrangements for canoeing the
mails to this point and by stage coach
from here east. The citizens were jubilant over a rumor started that government would operate the road, but
later intelligence doomed them to disappointment. Thero was great excitement through the upper country over
one train a week, but one would be a
boon compared to none. Stock men
complain bitterly of being compelled
to hold over their stock until spring.
A. Lindsay haa just arrived in town
frum Granite Creek and [reports over
700 men intending to winter there
with good prospects for early spring
work; but with no train service very
few can winter at tho mines, ns supplies nre limited. Governor Cornwall
and family passed through here today and reports having enjoyed his
trip in tho interior.

York dispatch of the 23rd inst. says:—
"Private, but official advices frum

steamship service from Conl Harbor,
B, C, to Hongkong, calling at Yokohama, for a period not exceeding 7
years. This is to be run alternately
with steamer lines via Brindiai and

Hum Tides.—During the past few
days the tides have been unusually
high, and it is reported that some of
the dykes on the delta lands have
been overflowed. Some farms ure
under water, nnd although the damage may nut be much the inconvenience is very great. Iu the vicinity
uf Ladner's Landing some of the
houses were Hooded until the water
stood two or three inches deep in the
parlor. There is two feet of water ou
the road at this side nf False Creek
bridge, and thu telegraph and telephone wires un the bridge are submerged. Oue cause of these high
tides is the heavy winds which have
been prevailing on the gulf.

Gas,-Mr. E. Mohun, C. E.t hu
boon gathering statistics about the eity
relating to the probable demands for
gas, and has oome to the conclusion
that gas works wuuld pay from the very
start. This is a matter in which all citizens should feel an interest. The superiority of gas over conl oil for illuminating purposes need not be mentioned, and if a superior article can be obtained at a cost actually less than tho
inferior, surely it is worth while making an effort to secure it. To the cost
of oil must be added the cost of lamp
chimneys nud of cleaning and trimming
lamps every day. We hope every citizen whu oan assist in the promution ol
a gas company wil! manifest his willingness without delay, and let the scheme
be perfected as soon as possible, Mr.
Mohun has not yet oompleted hts preliminary inquiries, but the result of
them will doubtless be laid before the
citizens shortly.

Bell Tower Entertainment, —
There was a large audience at the Drill
Shed on Wednesday night, und the
entertainment is pronounced one of
the "best yet* given for* the bell
tower. The programme consisted uf
songs, duets, trios, choruses, piano
solos and duets, recitations, tableaux,
an illustrated rendition of the "Mistletoe Bough," and a dialogue by a
number of school children. Altogether the programme was carried out in
a way that did great credit to those
whu arranged and took part in it. The
three tableaux were very pretty. The
last, representing a glimpse of fairyland, was especially enchanting. In
it were grouped a large number of
children dressed to represent fairies,
scattered through evergreens, (lowers,
and other charming adornments which
decorated the stago. In the dialogue
also a large number of little ones took
part, robed iu appropriate costumes.
We understand that the proceeds were
about 880. 	
Strono Coffee.—There are two
brothers connected with one of our
mercantile and manufacturing estnb-1
lishmenta who lodge in the same house.
Ono of them iB married and has a little
hopeful boy about two years of age.
On Thursday night the wife put some
coffee into the coffee pot and fixed it
so it would be handy for tho morning.
The little two-year-old observed the
operation, and wondered if there
might not possibly be some other ingredient added so as to give colur and
pungency to the decoction. As soon
as his mother had gone out of the kitchen this philosopher spied a piece of
ptog tobacco lying ou a shelf, nnd
some internal monitor (probably what
our cotemporary calls the "calculus")
whispered to him that was it just the
very thing needed in the coffee pot.
Acting promptly upon the suggestion,
he quietly slipped thu tobacco into tho
pot and shut down the lid. Next
morning the coffee was soaked and
boiled as usual, and two fragrant cups
were poured out smoking upon the
breakfast tablo. The two brothers
wenrtit ix huiry, fa tbey wero wanted
at the shop, and after adding cream
and sugar to the inviting beverage
they hastily drank it down without
stopping to analyze the strange and
unexpected flavor. The usual result
followed, however, and these two
brothers were forced to perform their
customary duties yesterday forenoon
upon empty stomachs. Tobacco should

At one timo I had somo doubt

sec. 152, that is, in opon court nnd by
n bench of magistrates, but nn consideration I think thnt sub-sec. 22

from that to which the latter section
refers. This becomes moro obvious
when the words of sees. 152 nnd 155

the applicant to givo notico of liis intention to apply for such licenso, uud
stating therein n full description of the
locality iu which tho promises "to be

situate." This is an expression which
I do not think tho legislature intended
to upply to n person who only keeps n
rust au runt, and whoso object is to supply beer or porter nt menls and not
otherwise,
I think tha conviction must be
qunshed.
It is not usual to givo costs ugainst
magistrates except under special circumstances, nud I see uo reason for
doing so in the present caso.

Kditor Columbian.—When the voto
for, or against, the bylaw was taken authorizing the corporation of New Westminster to borrow thirty-eight thousand
five hundred dollars for the construction
of a branch railway to connect this city
with the Canadian Pacific railway the
people were as a unit on the question;
the nroporty-holdors by their voto were
unanimous aa to the absolute necessity
for the railway; but no sooner is the
survey made than we hear growling here
and growling there, from some of those
through whose land the line has been
laid out, To remedy this state of things
I would suggest that instead of taking
the lino down through the oity as
proposed, the syndicate be advised
not to bring it farther than Lytton
square. Thero they would have plenty
ot wharf room, deep water and plenty of
room for warehouses and other buildings
wliich may be required. It may bo argued that the square and wator frontages would not afford sufficient room for
tbe purpose; thon in such ense lot as
much of block seven be appropriated as
may be necessary; property there would
not be of so muoh value as at ttie western pnrt of the city, and it would do
away with Chinatown, which everyone
must admit is au intolerable nuisance.

Regina vs. Bartlett.
This was an appeal by Thos. Bartlett against n conviction by the justice
at Cent rev Hie, whereby they cunvieted
him for that ho did, on tho 15th nnd
25th days of June last, ut Centrevilte,
carry ou and exercise tho business of
vending fermented liquors by retail,
without having taken uut und had
grantod to him a license in that behalf.
The ovideuce was taken by mc at
Cetitruville, at the Inst county court,
and I have since then heard the arguments of counsel for the uppollutit ntid
respondents, respectively,
The ovidence of Thos. Bartlett and
his wife was given subject to tho objection of incompetency, nnd I think
must be rejactud, as must also the
question ns to thu reputation t-f thu
house, and the answer to it by Henry
Street.
Mrs, Bartlett in May last took out
a licuiiso under sub.-sec. 22 of sue. 110
of the Municipality Aet, 1881, authorising her as thu keeper of a restaurant
to supply beer or porter with meals,
and not otherwise. This license was
not uranted in open court mid by a
bench of magistrates.
This license has n mntorial bonring

Montreal, Nov. 22.—*The long-
talked of mnss meeting nt Chump do
Mara, by French Canadians, was held
this nfternoon, nbout 10,000 persons
being present, Thero were threo platforms, nt ench uf which the French
flag floated. There were between
thirty and forty speakers, who one
and all protested in strong language
againBt the action of tho government
in hanging Kiel, and called upon all
present to combine to defeat the government. Sir John Macdonald was a
speoial object of invective, his action
in the present instance boing regarded
by thc speakers as a crime of the most
culpable character, A telegram was
read from Messrs. Boyd and Murphy,
of the New York Irish Union, protesting against Orange fanaticism and British brutality, and wishing the French
Canadians succoss in the struggle.
The following resolution, among others,
was passed unanimously: "That in
executing Louis Riel the government
has committed an act of inhumanity
and cruelty unworthy of a civilized nation, nnd deserves tho condemnation
of all friends of right and justice,
without distinction of race or religion."
Quebec, Nov. 22.—A nieetiug called
to express indignation at tho execution
of Kiel, held at Levis to-day, drew au
immense crowd. Effigies were burned,
and tings inscribed "Glory to tho Horo
and Martyr Riol," "Death to Sir John
Macdonald," and "Hurrah for Riel,"
wero displayed, The greatest enthusiasm prevailed. Hon. M. Pellet iur
called upon all to unite, and said war
hnd been opened by Orangemen in
Shorbrooke, in attacking nationalists.
Hon. M. Desjardiiis, Conservative
member of parlinment, said a protest
against the execution of Riel, representing 1,500,000 French Cnundtnns
had been Bent to Iho govornmont but
wns not recognized, and n threatened

Government nud province of Quebec,

Another indignntiou meoting was

of Hon. Mr. Caron, this nfternoon,
There wero 3000 persons present. In

New York,, Nov. 11.—The owner
of tho Jlritiah cutter Arrow hus issued
a challenge through the London Field
for tho International Challenge Cup,
the one nun by his boat in the raco
against tho America in 1852, when the
latter was also under British rig and
British management. The challenge
has made quite a sensation in the New
York Yacht Club, and is variously
commented upon.
NuwiiDRYPOitT, Mass., Nov. 12.—
Charles H. Barker, single, twenty-
eight years of age, has fallen heir to

Mary Ami Thurborn of London.
Nkw York, Nov. 14.—The Commercial this evening says: The naval preparations now actively in progress indicate a much worse outlook in Central
America than any facts in possession
of tlio public would of themselves suggest. The United States government
is hurriedly preparing to concentrate
its entire available naval strength in
Central American waters, sending fur-
ward each veaael as soon as it is in
readiness for duty, each being fully
ntmed nnd manned, and each being
supplied with ammunition and provisions for a prolonged period of active
service. Such preparations ure not
made without adequate cause, but precisely what reasons the government litis
for anticipating serious troubles iu that
quarter, nobody not in the councils of
the administration is informed.
Nkw York, Nov. 10.—The Sun
haB an editorial on the Isthmus trouble, in which it says: It ia probable
the Tennessee and Galena have gone
to Aspinwall, not for' the sake of unwarrantably interfering in the nffnirs
of Columbia, but as the Galena did
last winter, in order to be ready to
discharge treaty obligations and protect American citizens should the occasion arise. The political condition of
tho republic iB still unsettled. The
excitement created by the recent decree imposing heavy duties on merchandise imported at Aspinwall and
Panama haa aroused special fears of
another outbreak against the government on the Isthmus.
New York, Nov.. 10.—The Religious
World is much interested in the proposed movement a fortnight hence to
uwaken religious thought in New York
and other eastern cities. The same
journal says: Presbyterians will join
Episcopalians in working for the revival of religion in this city. It is not
improbable the Protestant churches
pretty generally will lend thoir aid.
We have not had anything like an extensive revival in these churches since
the great' awakening in 1857, when
even the prayer meetings in the business part of the town were crowded
daily by merchants and their clerks,
und the theatres wero turned into
temples of worship. The religious excitement was so great then that it attracted tho attention of the whole
civilized world. The Sun doubts if
the impending movement will be so
deep or widespread. The cjty is twice
ns large uow as then, and the .tharacter
of tho population has changed very
decidedly, owing to thu enormous increase in the foreign element. Religious zeal has been cooled, religious
fnith weakened by skeptical attacks.
Wall street was a slow, torpid place in
1857 compared with 1885.
sion of business are ready to catch at
auy plausible remedy. The churoh cry
still offers tho Tories their beat chance.
The Liberals, who counted a fortnight
since ou a -.'fear mujbrity of forty.flix,
now claim twenty. The Tories are doily
more confident over their chances of
keeping in office by a coalition with Parnell. What all concede is that tlio
elections will be prolific in surprises.
Salt Lake, Nov. 23—The esse of Deputy Mnrshal Vandercook, charged by
the police with lewdness, was taken before tho Third District Court to-day on
habeas corpus, claiming the ordinance invalid. The hearing is set for Friday.
Evidence accumulates that the church
agents for months have been employing
harlot spies und procurers to entrap
sinful gentiles.- A contract with one
of .San Francisco's noted harlots has
been procured, whereby she was to come
to Salt Lake and engage in certain transactions, thc nature of which she knows
and fully understands, and for whicli she
received 3700 in cash, and was to receive
81,000 for every prominent gontile'or Fedoral entrapped. Women ot the town
came from other places it is supposed on
similar contracts, and on their arrival
took private houses nnd flooded the mails
with letters to persons whose names were
furnished thom, asking them to call.
Two moro arrests were made to-day,
but proceedings were stayed nnd no
further arrests will bo made until tlie
district court decides the habeas corpus
cases.

OFFICIAL REPORT OF TKE DEPUTY PROV. SEC.
Piuiv.  Seo,'« Offiob,
23rd Noyomhor, 1885.
Tlio following roport on tho discoveries oj gold on lirunito Crook is puli-
lisbod for general information.
Jno Kobson, Prov. Sec.
Victoria, 23rd Nov., 1885.
Snt,—In accordance with your instructions, I loft here on the 23rd
ultimo and proceeded, via Nicola, to
Grauito Creok, wliich I reached on tho
morning of tho 20th ultimo.
This stream is tributary of the Tula-
metm, or Nortii Fork of the Similku-
ineoii, nnd falls into that rivor, on its
' rijjht bank, nbout 12 miles above its
junction with tho South Similkumeen
at Princeton —perhaps bettor known
as the Vermillion Forks, m* stilt better
as "Allison's,"
About livo miles from its mouth,
Granite Creek is joined by u small
tributary from tho south-west, and tbo
point of junction is culled by tho miners "Tho Forks." Nut being a true
fork, it is a niismniior, but, for convenience, I shall retain tho name whon
speaking of that locality in tbis report.
Looking up tbu valley of the crock
from high land just below thc forks,
the bearing hfiytii tho south-cast, and,
in Iho distraiieo, from oast of southeast. Looking down stream from the
samo point its genoral courso to the
Tulanioon is about N. 30 E. (mag.)
With tho exception of a few hundred yards nt its mouth, Granite Creek
runs from tbe forks downwards in a
deep V shaped yorgo, through which
the yearly freshet, evidently of great
volume, has wasbud everything except
the gold ntid some gravel- iu fact this
portion of the crock has been ground-
sluiced by nature.
From near the mouth uf tho cruuk to
a point something over half n mile bolow the forks, a distance of about four
milos, no claim which has been tested
on both sides of tlio bed of tbo stream
has failed to yield uoud returns, and it
nitty safely bo said that the ground for
that distance will average over au
ounco n day to tho hand. From the
point indicated upwards, continuous
pay has not boon discovered, but theru
is overy indication tbat this wonderfully persistent lead of heavy gold will
thore he found in thu hill on the proper luft bank of thu croek. It afterwards appears to cross the creek to tho
right bank, and possibly continues in
that bank to beyond the short canon
through which Granite Oreek runs,
just before its junction with thu tributary from tho south-west at tlie forks.
I havo not myself been above tiie last-
named point, but nm told thu bed of
tha stream is there considerably wider,
thu valley not so distinctively V
shaped, and thu ground much deeper.
For thoau runsotis tho timu has been
too short for a proper test to hnvo been
made of this portion of tho creek, but
for a distance of tivo miles men aru at
work, at intervals, and I heard of a
prospect being obtained by some
Frenchmen, during the timo I was on
the creek, over which they were much
excited. Some experienced miners
have a very high opinion of thu upper
creek—called erroneously, perhaps for
recording purposes, the South Fork-
but it is right to point out that, although there is every probability of
the run- of gold extending abovo tho
forks, it has not yet been proved to do
so.
The creek is a long one, from twenty-
five to thirty miles and, iu addition to
thc annual freshet, ia Bubjoot to Hoods
from rainfall during the autumn
mouths. Uu this account many miners contend that the early Bpring, bofore the snow on the mountains begins
■ tu molt, will be thu best time for work.
In judging as to the feasibility of this
it should not bu forgotten that the
mouth of Granite Creek has only about
half the altitude of Barkerville, and
three and a half degrees advantage in
latitude.
On the 3lst October, on lower Gra-
nitu Croek, there were C2 companies
owning crook claims, averaging probably 300 feet to the company, who
wore working. Of these 34 were taking out gold and 28 either preparing to
do su or prospecting. The gold admitted to have beun taken out by the
several white and Chinese companies,
from 5th July to 31st October, amounts
to the Urge sum of $!>0,0b0, which,
considering the great loss of timo
caused by the freshet, and also the
ditikulty of obtaining lumber for
nluice-boxes, is a creditable showing.
It is almost certain that the actual
total is more, but that yield can be
given without any possible fear of exaggeration.
Chinese have for years boon mining
on the banks of the Tulamuen many
miles above the mouth of Granite
Creek, and it is therefore, probable that other gold-bearing tributaries of that river, issuing from the
samo slate range, will be found.
The wonderful richness of tho developments in Cariboo during the autumn
of 1801 attracted thither, in the following spring, tho miners who had
huon working on the bars of the Sim*
ilkameen- and who would, doubtless,
under other circumstances, havo followed the gold to its source in thu
same way as thoir brother miners
working in 1858*50 on tho bars of tho
Eraser had done. This appears to mc
to bu a sufficiently satisfactory explanation of the delny which has occurred
in thu discovery of this uow gold fluid,
so fnr as minors aru concerned j Chiuose, however, have been passing the
mouth nf Grauito Crook for yours, and
their failure to tind out ita valuo gofifl
far to provo the assertion, often made,
thut they never prospect in any true
sense of that word. It is indeed most
fortunate that such has been tho case
in this instance, for had the Chinese
working on the Tulanioon come to
know of thn easily worked and rich
ground on Granite Croek, it would
have beou quietly gutted, without our
kitowludge and without any appreciable
benefit accruing to u single white person.
I was particularly impressed with
the fact that those who wero warmest
in praise of these new diggings were
among the most experienced miners
there; and certainly I have not, so far,
seen any report in the newspapers
which has gone beyond thu truth.
The statements made as to tho yield
of the claim owned by Messrs. Sherburne it Hashdoll, noar the mouth of
the creek, are quite correct, and it may
be added that im they are not working
on bedrock the possibilities for this
claim are very great. Other reports-
such for example as Messrs. Briggs &
Bromley taking out $400 in an after*
noon with a rocker might also be verified, but it seems unnecessary, and I
shall confine myself to giving onu instance of good pay being obtained
whioh I have not seen reported. On
Sunday morning, the lst instant, the
Point Company, situated about two
inlies above Cap). Sherburne's ground,
washed up 45 ounces, or over 1700, at
the mult of the labor of eight men
fur thirty hours, Tbis ulnim is owuod
by Messrs, Peurce and Harvey, the
former of whom ia one of the pioneers
of Cariboo, and well known throughout that dislrict.
There is associated with tho gold on
Granite Creek a vory hard, heavy, and
whitish metal, which is probably platinum or iridium, perhaps u mixture
of both. I brought away with mo
ubout half nu ounce as n sample.
Thore are no means of thoroughly
testing it here, but Dr. G. M. Dawson, Assistant Director of the Geological Survey of Canada, has kindly
offered to take it to Ottnwa for examination in the laboratory there, after
which it will be forwarded to London
for exhibition at the Colonial and Iu-
diati Exposition to be held next year.
I believe that the discoveries on
Granite Creek will lead to the open-
up of an extensive gold-field—a
gold-Held, in fact which, from its accessibility and close proximity to farming districts, producing beef, flour,
vegetables, oats, and hay, will be of
more benefit to tho Province than any,
with thu exception of Cariboo, hitherto discovered. Iu this opinion 1 may,
of course, bo wrong, but-1 venture to
submit that evon so, the finding, nt
the close of railway construction, of a
lead nf heavy gold, having n steady
run for so groat a distance as four
miles, is n matter of thu greatest importance, and an event on which Ilie
province may be most heartily congratulated.
On the luft bank, at the mouth of
the creek, a level bench offers n good
sito for a town, and is being rapidly
covered with log houses. At tho time
of my visit thero were seven generul
stores (three of which wore kept by
Chinese), two restaurants, twu licensed
houses for the sale of liquors, and a
butcher's shop, In addition, thore
wure about fifteen houses in course of
construction, and mure or less building
will probably be carried on during tho
winter. I estimated that there were
between 400 and 500 whito men, aud
from 150 to 200 Chinese, on nnd in tho
neighborhood of Granite Creok. It
is extremely difficult to do more than
guess at the number of men who will
winter iu a mining camp tho firat season, I think, however, tbat there
will uot be less than two hundred
whito people, uuless a scarcity and
consequent high price of staple articles
should drive them away.
It is probable that a very short summer route to Granite Creek can be obtained by taking, ut tho end of tho
wagon road from Hopo, the left or
Canon trail, instead of the right or
Grunt trail, which is usually followed.
Thu head waters of Granite Creek can-
nut be many miles from thu Canon
trail; it is possible that sume of them
cross it; and if a practicable route
could bu found iu this direction it
would savo a long detour to Allison's,
nnd twelve miles of very bad trail from
there up the Tulamcen tu tho mouth
of Granite Creek. In the event of the
upper portion of the creek turning out
well, the saving in distance would be
still greater.
For a wagon road tho valley of the
Cold water, which falls into the Nicola
at Coutluo's, will probably, eventually,
be found to bo the easiest line. It is
n matter, however, which must be determined by explorations.
I intended tu have appended a list
of prices tu this report, but. tliere has
already buen a sharp rise in Hour, and
es the same thing iB likely, in my
opinion, to occur in other articles,
such a list would only be misleading,
and is, perhaps, better omitted. I
may say, however, as giving a general
indication of prices, that fairly good
meals are obtainable at the low rate,
for n mining camp, of fifty cents, —

Swamp Muck.
Much has been written- both for
and against tlio value of swamp muck
aa a fertilizer. But in spite of all the
objections to it, the fact remains that
swamp muck, of an average good
quality, consisting mainly of decayed
vegetable matter, contains ono and a
half per cent, of nitrogen. It is true
that this nitrogen jb inert, nnd it is
necessary to tako action to make it
available. To do this is tho business
of the farmer, who rarely finds the
materials with which ho works already
prepared to liis hand, Ono und a
half per cent, is equal to thirty
pounds per ton. Thirty pounds of
the cheapest nitrogen the farmer can
procure is worth three dollars. If
swamp muck, by tho expenditure of a
little labor at this season, can bo
made worth three dollars a ton, or one
cubic yard, what is it worth per acre
if three feet deep? Wo forbear to say
any more than this, lest our readers
might think us extravagant. We
would impress upon the minds of
farmers who own swamps, whicli are
left to remain unsightly and unheulth-
ful eye-sores upon their farms, the
hard fact that they are not only wasting a valuable opportunity of improving their lands, by neglecting to drain
these marshy places, but are leaving
unused the valuable material which
might fertilize the upland to mako it
doubly productive The writer speaks
from his own knowledge and experience in this respect, having for sumo
years dug and used annually several
hundred tons of swamp muck, in the
form of compost with lime and barnyard manure. He has used it, when
dry, ns titter, as an absorbent in the
manure cellar, cattle yards and pig
pens, and lias found it to bo worth all
that the chemists have claimed for it.

Famishing Offlce Hunter'* Wall
A Democrat stood at tho White House
door,
And thus ho muttered tho while he
swore:
"Upon what meat doth this our Ciesur
feed
Tlmt he hath grown so great,
Wliile hungry followers in sorest need
Must hopelessly stand and wait?
Was it for this we made hiin president,
Rojoicing in tho task,
That wc, the famishing, must stay content
Nor dare for office ask ?
I  know not what may ho our Cicsar's
meat,
Hut this I know full well,
I wish old Hendricks occupied his sent,
And Cleveland was in—Buffalo again,
or anywhere else out of the way, and
kopt there! Thii order announcing arrogantly that a good Democrat cannot
even oall on the president and tell him
what he wants is an infamy and nn
outrage! What did we elect the man
for, anyhow ?"
