The Itcrorm Side.
Iho following article from the
Hamilton Times may be accented
as a Reform view of the situation:
"Sir Richard Cartwright made a
speech last evening to tbe Reform-
era of Toronto. vHo was followed
by Messrs. Blake, Mackenzie, Mowat
and Ryan. The address by Sir
Richard was such ns might be ex
peeteil from him, an able criticism
upon the proceedings of the last
session of parliament, a candid
statement of the principles upon
wliich Canada ought to be governed,
a fait- resume of historical events
bearing upon the present political
situation, an eloquent forecast of
the destiny of the Dominion, Sir
Richard Oartwright. rejeots in toto
the dogma that the people can be
made rich by abstracting from
theui thoir money by taxation. He
believes it is ah act of fairness to
leave at the disposal of the people
nil of their earnings wliich the government iH not obliged to take for
publio purposes. He objects to running into debt; ho objects to the
bribery of individuals 'and of provinces with publio funds; lie looks
upon paternal government with disfavor. In dealing with figures he
is accurate and forcible. Ho showed
thnt the United States, when the
population of that country was four
times the present population of Canada, oarried on the public service
with a smaller expenditure of money than Sir John Macdonald takes
from the peoplo of Canada each
year. He declared his belief that
the burdens now laid upon Canada
could be greatly reduced without injury to any worthy interest, and
With great benefit td the musses of
the people. He was especially
severe upon the members, of parliament who have used their positions
to feather their own nests at the
expense of the country. Sir Richard
told the plain truth when he was
giving the reason why Mr. Mackenzie was defeated in 1878. Mr.
Mackenzie was honest and patriotic;
ho refiised to bribe. In that year
mun, most of them wealthy, went
lo Mr. Mackenzie nnd nsked liim to
give them money whicli did not belong to them. They did not ask
him to tako $50,000 or $100,000
from the public chest and hand it
to them in bulk, but their request
meant exactly the same thing. They
asked such an adjustment of the
tariff that they—tho men whose
politieal influence was for sale-
might become their own tax-guthor-
el's. A man who had bedsteads to
sell asked that the law might be
fixed to enable him to charge his
customers $13.50 every time he sold
a $10 bedstead, and other men mado
similar requests. Mr. Mackenzie
said no. He would not, directly or
indirectly, rob tho toiling masses
tq enrich a fow men whose political
influence was great. They found
another purchaser for (hat political
influence. They drove Mr. Mackenzie out of office, and this year Canada bos to pay $83,000,000 for the
grave error committed by those who
consented to the bargain ard sale
mado in 1878. The workingmen
wero made to think that thoy would
obtain n share of the-spbil. They
have lived to find out that they were
destined, not to shear, but to ba
fleeced. Under uny lurid' system,
ull the money spent in Canada bos
to be earned in Canada, by the
labor of Canadians. The Tilley
tariff has not given the poor more
unless it hns given tho rioh less. It
was the rich who made the bargain
with Sir John Macdonald when Mr,
Mackenzie refused to treat with them,
and that bargain has done nothing
but harm to the Canadians who
produce wealth by their labor. Sir
Richard Cartwright was earnest in
his exhortation that the people
should not hold aloof from politics
and leavo the.management of public affairs to professional politicians.
If polities is. corrupt, if politicians
are untrustworthy, it must be because tho.people do net retain control us they might do it every man
performed his duty. It is a bad
sign when honest men in private
life wink at corruption in publio
affairs. Why should a man. who
would not rob his neighbor's clothesline or lie in a horse trade, think
it no harm to take, without paying
its value, a timber limit belonging to
the whole people, or why should
sueh a man consider it pardonable
for Sir John Macdonald to buy 51
Queboo votes with $7,000,000 contributed to the publio treasury by
the peoplo of Ontario for another
purpose]1 So long as the people are
indifferent, politicians will bo corrupt. The reform must bo enforced
by the peoplo, the fountain of power. Sir Richard Cartwright and
the othor honest political leaders of
the time have a great work to do to
arouse the peoplo to stem the tide
of corruption that has been flowing
over the land,    They deserve en-

Hlg Father's Nape.
At the beginning of a Behoof-term
all pupils in the public schools are required to give their father's full name,
The teacher asked Michael Murphy
what his father's name was, and
Michael said;
"Mr. Mur,my."
"What is his lint name)"
"He never had but one name."
"Well, what would you call him if
you wanted a new rooking horse?"
"I don't want one."        '
"When, you speak to him, what do
yousoyf .      .
"Oh, I can't remember, all I uy
when t speak to Win."
"But, supposing he was odt chopping
wood, and you went to' the door and
called him, what would you say'?"
"He never outs up wood, but if I
should call him, I would call him
'dad,'"
-'Oh, dear! I wish I could make you
understand what I mean. Now, can't
you tell me what your mother calls
him?"
"Yes, 'um; she calls him 'Old Red
Head.'"
Mirage in the Desert.
Wo were making about thirty milei
a dny, Bleeping soundly at night, when
the ever watchful hyena, and occaiion-
ally a troop of wild aasei, would pay
us their nocturnal visits, and upon the
fourth morning we began to approach
the shores of the Mirage Seas, These
atmospheric phenomena on the Nubian
Desert are not only very perfect imitations of real lakes, but nave on many
occasions inveigled expeditions away,
to perish of heat and thirst, A little
time before my expedition to Central
Africa a body of Egyptian troops cross-
tug this desert found their water almost
at a boiling-point in the skins, and
nearly exhausted. Tbey beheld, a few
milea distant, an apparent lake overshadowed by a forest and bordered
with verdure and shrubbery. Although
told by the guide that it was an illusion,
they broke ranks started off in pursuit
of tbe sheet of wntcr, chasing tho serial
phantom, although it receded with the
pace of their approach. At last tbey.
sank down from thirst and fatigue,
and died 1 Tirtfve hours on the Nubian
Desert without water means a certain
and terrible death; and even to this
day, having been near sueh an end,
with all its indescribable anguish, I
seldom raise a gloss of water to ray
lips that I do not recall a day when I
lav upon the burning sand, awaiting
with impatience the moment that
should snap asunder the vital cord and
giro pence to ray burning body.   -
A mirage certainly presents an incomparable scenic effect. Once in its
midst, you are encompassed by an Imponderable mirror. It reflects the
rocks, the mountains, the stray mimosa
trees, and reproduces by inverted
mirage every prominent object of the
extended landscape. It has the blue
of polished platinum and lies like a
motionless sea, stretching away from
tho craggy bluffs. Sometimes during
the noonday heat it dances within a
few -yards of tho caravan, and gives
motion to every object within its area,
changing tho wnsto to the semblance
of rolling seas peopled with the semblance of ine]*.—Alvan S. Seuthunrth.

Wit is sometimes more effective than
argument in silencing a loquacious but
obtuse opponent. One of the most
serviceable uses it oan be put to is that
of pricking a pompous person, who
thinks that loudness of voice and violence of manner are effective Weapons.
Some years ago, the students of a
cortain college in tho State of New
York-were in the habit of voting in
the town, as they had a right to do,
instead of at their homes, But one
year, the political party against which
the students had usually voted, secured
the control, and appointed two or three
of their adherents guardians of the
ballot-box.
As one j student after another presented his vote, one of these official,,
a pompous, strutting mnn, challenged
hiin. Several students had yielded,
rather than enter into a contest With
the "loud" man. But at last there
came up a homely, awkward student,
gifted with a large atock of mother-
wit.
"Stop!" oried the pompous man,
imperatively, aa the student was about
to vote.   "Are you a voter, air?''
"Yos, sir," drawled the student.
"Where do you live?" demanded
the man, thinking to make short work
of this green youth.
"Why, here, sir."
"I mean, where do you reside I"
"Why, at the college, sir."
"You an a student there?"
"Yes, air."
"You are merely a student, and yet
claim to reside here?"
"Yes, sir, I reside here. Whore
else should I live and attend this oel-
lege 1"
"You know. what I mean well
enough,!' said the pompous man, impatiently.   "Don't you ever go away ?"
"Of course I do, sometimes. The
Bufety of the town doesn't require iny
constant presence," drawled out the
student
A laugh ran through the crowd, and
the pompous man grew red In the face,
Ilut he gathered himself up for a final
effort,
"Young man," said he solemnly,
"these evasions are of no avail. Answer
me this one question; If you were sick,
whore would you go?"
The student hesitated, as if h. did
not like to say, "Homo, sir," or
"Where my parents live."
"I insist on au answer," persisted
the official, with the triumphant air of
a man who hu driven his opponent
into a comer. "Where would yeu go
if you wero sick)"
"Well," drawled out the student,
'if I must tell, I should-I should—
go to bed."
Amidst the roar of laughter which
rang through the town hall the pom-
Sous man stepped aside, and the stu-
ent handed In hi. ballot.

Tbe Dynamite Fiends.
London, and all England, baa
again been thrown into convulsions
bj the dynamiters. From telegrams
published elsewhere it will be seen
tbat the latest attempt of these
bloodthirsty men has been success
ful in destroying a quantity of property and some innocent lives. The
Fenians in New York express great
satisfaction in Ill's result. They declare that they have got England
now where she will be forced to
plead for mercy. One can scarcely
imagine anything more profoundly
inhuman. Tbe innocent women who
were blown to pieces in London
may not be counted as worth much
in the eyes pf a Fenian, but their
blood will surely arouse tbe nation.
In attempting to beard tbe British
lion these people may find that
they have merely trodden upon bia
tail and aroused him to their own
destruction. We are very much
mistaken if these senseless and diabolical outrages do not so excite
publio opinion as to make it very
hot and uncomfortable for the dynamiters. If the nation gets thoroughly woke up, (here may be a
bigger commotion thnn these men
reckoned upon.
School Election.
Several amendments wero made
in the public school act at last
session of the provincial legislature.
An the time fixed for the sohool
election is not now far off, it ia important that these changes should be
generally understood. In the city
school districts (which embrace New
Westminster, Victoria and Nanaimo), the annual sohool .meeting ia
to be held next Monday, at 11 a.
m. At that meeting the annual
report of tbe trustee board muat be
presented. The annual meeting for
election of school trustees is to be
held on Monday, the 16th inst, at
11a. m., both in city and rural sections. Nominations close at noon,
and in case of a contest the poll
shall remain open until 3 p. in. in
rural districts and 4 p. m. in cities.
It ia necessary for the trustee board
in each district to appoint tiie place
where the school meeting shall be
held, end to post up and publish in
a newspaper (if any published in
the district) at least 10 days before the meeting, notices stating the
time, place and object of the meeting. At least 3 such notices must
be posted, and one must be on the
school house. As 'the meeting this
year will be held on the 16th, these
notices should be posted not later
than next Friday. In city districts
there are to be six trustees elected—
two for each ward—and all the present trustees must resign. Of course
the trustees now serving will be
eligible for re-election. According
to the new act women who have the
necessary qualification may vote at
a school election. Section 10 reads
as follows: "Any householder or
freeholder resident in any school
district for a period of six months
previous to the election, and the
wife of any fluoh householder or
freeholder, shall be entitled to vote
at any school meeting held in such
district and for the election of trustees: provided Chinese and Indians
ahall not vote." We hope that
more publio interest wil) be manifested in the approaching sohool
meetings and elections than has
hitherto been customary. The education of the youth is one of the
most important questions with which
we can concern ourselves, and it is
of very great consequence that the
best men should be selected for the
responsible position of trustees. Let
the school meetings be well attended, and let the voters act with
judgment and independence.
risk. Yesterday four teams came
down from Langley with between
three and four tons of produce for
this city. They could not oross,
because thero was no way of getting on to the ferry, and the produce had to be left on the other
side. Now, this is a condition of
things which should not be suffered
to exist. At considerable expense
to the government and some of the
municipalities this ferry was established because it would enable
farmers to bring their produce to
market. This was the principal argument in its favor. After the
money has been spent and the ferry
built, we find that the object of its
establishment has not bean accomplished. Whoso fault is itt We
answer, the fault is chiefly, if not
wholly, with tho municipality of
Surrey. For several months the
Surrey council has heen urged by
the city council to pass a by-law
giving effeot to the ferry charter.
After numerous delays the by-law
has been read, bnt we learn that
it is not yet complete and has not
the force of law. It is really too
bad that the usefulness of the ferry
should be impaired and its very
existence threatened through the
neglect of that municipality. We
understand that the people ef Surrey object to the schedule of charges
agreed upon by the city council
nnd the ferry; but there Beems to be
little doubt that the schedule was
the best that* could be made. Indeed it was a matter of great doubt
for a long time whether any person would take the charter even on
this schedule. But if Surrey thinks
a more favorable tariff could be
agreed upon, let her propose one
and secure the acceptance of Capt.
Grant. Thia oity will certainly not
object to a reduction in the rates.
We earnestly hope the council of
Surrey will see how necessary it is
that the ferry matter should be
placed ou a proper basis, and without any further delay.
The Steam Ferry.
It is now several months since
Oapt. Grant began rnnning the
steam ferry across the Fraser at
thia city. The ferry itself may not
not be just suoh a concern as one
would like to see; but it must be
admitted on all hands that the service haa been well performed, and
that it haa heen • grent accomodation to those who had occasion
to cross the river. Pepole generally find it necessary to creep before
they can walk, and we have no
doubt thnt as traffio increases the
ferry accommodation and facilities
will keep increasing. What we
wish to remark now is that great
coaplaiintt are made about the nb-
■roce of a ferry slip on the other
•id* of tb* river. The wharf is in
•uch a shape that teams cannot be
leaded except at great trouble and
Egyptian Finances.
In a late number of the Scoitisli-
American we find the following
brief statement of the financial situation in Egypt. This is one of
the questions which will most seriously complicate the work of the
approaching conference: "Considerable misconception exists regarding
the object of the conference of the
Powers about to sit in London on
Egyptian affairs. This is greatly
owing to the Tory organs trying to
make political capital out of it
against the British govornment,
which they say has landed Egypt
into such a muddle that Britain
cannot extricate it without foreign
assistance. The circular and accompanying memorandum of Earl
Granville shows clearly that the
complications in the Soudan or elsewhere have little to do with it, and
that the conference would have been
necessary supposing no such troubles
existed. The subjects to be discussed by the conference are purely
financial. It appears that the
finances of Egypt have got into a
bad state, and that they cannot be
righted unless the Powers agree to
modify or niter certain of the privi-
:s they now hold Hence the
necessity for the conference to discuss and adjust the new terms. At
present the Egyptian finances are
regulated by what is called The Law
of Liquidation, which is based upon
an agreement entered into by all the
European Powers in 18*10. Being
thus tantamount to an international
treaty it cannot be modified or altered except by consent; but unless
it is modified it will be impossible
for the Egyptian government to implement their obligations. The
awards of the international commission for destruction of property
at Alexandria amount to upwards
of four and a quarter of millions of
.pounds sterling. Then the cost of
attempting to hold the Soudan will
not be less than another one and a
half million. And in addition, the
expenditure has for several years
exceeded the income of the country.
So the Egyptian government find
that they require a new loan of
eight millions of pounds sterling,
and the interest on this loan cannot
be met unless this Law of Liquidation is modified. When this law
of Liquidation was settled in 1880
the total funded debt of Egypt
amounted to £80,633,000, of which
£22,857,000 was called 'privileged'
debt, bearing interest at 5 per cent.,
and £57,776,000 was called 'unified' debt, bearing interest at 4 per
cent. By the Law of Liquidation
it was arranged that the privileged
debt and interest should bo extinguished in sixty-one years by a sinking fund, and that the unified debt
Bhould be wiped off by any surplus
remaining ef the revenues assigned
after paying the privileged debt in.
stalments, and its own interest. The
revenues so assigned were those of
four provinces, besides the net receipts from railroads and telegraphs,
the dues of the port of Alexandria,
and the customs revenue. But then
the estimated balance of four millions of revenue from other sources
has not been realised, and so the
government have not been able to
make ends meet, and never will be
able to do so unless new arrangements are made. This result was
forscen by tho French Controllers
in 1880, and they suggested then
that a loan of £8,000,000 should
be raised, and charged upon the
revenues assigned. The effect of
that would be to arrest the redemption of that unified debt. But even
were that proposal submitted to the
conference, and agreed to, it would
not be enough, as the expenditure
would still continue to exceed the
revenue, nnd debt thus continue to
accumulate, It is thus evident that
to accomplish this desirable—indeed
necessary—end all parties interested
must make certain sacrifices. How
all this can bediscuBsed and adjusted
without taking into consideration,
not merely the financial but the
whole question affecting Egypt, it is
difficult to conceive. But it is to
be hoped that all difficulties will be
surmounted by the conference, and
a permanent arrangement effected
for the good of all concerned."

Correspondence of the Colonist,
Spallumcheen, May 17.—I think
we never had a more favorable spring.
A large area of grain has been sown
and is doing splendidly. Among the
large crops Lumley & Bennet have, I
should imagine, about 400 acres sown
and a large quantity fallowing for fall
wheat. J. Wichers & Furstenan
must have nearly 200 aores eaoh. Mr.
O'Keefe and Mr. Greenhow have each
somewhere about the same quantity
sown, while there are numbers with
100 acres in crop. With grain at 2c
per lb. and a yield of a ton to the
acre (the amount they get with a favorable year), this represents a great
deal of money. It seems a great pity
that the legislative assembly should be
so shortsighted as to defeat the Okona-
gon-Shuswnp railway bill.   Over 100,-
000 acres uf laud are occupied by
bona fide settlers who would utilize
this railway and be able to grow large
quantities of grain with the facilities
for shipment which the railroad would
afford. I expect that there is no part
of British Columbia that shows great*
er signs of progress than this favored
locality. A great number of new
people are making their homes here.
Mr. Paton, a Scotch gentleman, re*
cently bought out an old settler and,
1 believe, intends growing fruit. He
planted a large number of trees this
spring whioh all look remarkably
thrifty. Ballot-papers are sent round
to the members of the mounted rifles.
The election of officers is to take place
on the 24th. Rev. Horlock, of Yale,
has, I believe, selected a site fur a
house and intends building', shortly.
Mr, Postill has the millwrights at
wurk putting new machinery in his
mill on Dog Creek. There is a splendid opening for a man who has a little
capital, and understands the busineu,
to bring up an artesian borer with
uecessary piping, etc. He could contract for scores of wells here; the subsoil is a hard sedimentary deposit,
clay and sand, no rooks to contend
with; easy boring. Many have sunk
100 feet in this without striking water,
but no one has been through it. There
is no country that offers greater facilities for boring, and where it is so
much needed. There is also going to
be a scarcity of thrashing machines
this fall. I have often been asked if
this is a good place for settlers to come
to. Only those with capital. The
place is a perfect garden; the soil cannot be surpassed for productiveness
and no irrigation is necessary. But
the land is valuable and anyone with
capital to invest, who likes sport, and
the best climate in the world, could
not do better than buy a place here.
Many of the old, non-progressive
settlers are to be bought out comparatively cheap. There are farms
here that are realizing from three
thousand to fifteen thousand dollars a
year, io of course these places are nut
to be bought for a song, .

Professor Grant, tn tho Week.
At McMillan's camp on the Ille-
cille-waut, the trail that wo had followed from the summit of the Selkirks
ended; and the valley that extended
before us was clothed with a pathless
tangle that the trail markers were cutting through at the rate of perhaps
half-amile a day. The distance to
the second crossing of the Columbia,
however, was estimated at only seventeen miles, and we felt that old travellers ought to be able to worry through
in some way or another, Ourehief
apprehension wns that the Indians
from Kamloops might not be at the
mouth of the Ille-cille-waut. We had
telegraphed from Winnipeg to British
Columbia that tbey must be there between September 8th- and 12th. So
far we were np to our programme, for
we had reached McMillan's camp on
the evening of the Oth; and the Major
said that the intervening seventeen
miles could be made in four days. Our
party numbered twelve; the original
three, Al.,' Dave, and seven fine fellows from McMillan's camp. Mr.
Fleming and I carried little; all the
rest shouldered packs from forty to
nearly a hundred pounds in weight,
carrying them knapsack fashion, or by
means of a trump-line across the forehead, after the manner of the Scutch
fish-wives to be seen on the streets of
Edinburgh with their great baskets of
tish from Newhaven.
In all my previous juurneyings,
othor men had been beforo me and
had left some memorial of their work,
a railway, a macadamized or gravel
road, a lane, n trail, or at least, blazed
trees to indicate the direction to bo
taken. Now, we learned what it was
to be without benefit of other men's
work. Here, there was nothing even
tu guide, save an occasional glimpse of
the sun, and the slate-colored churned
up torrent, running generally west or
south-west, hemmed in by canons,
from which we turned aside only tu
get mired in beaver,dams or alder
swamps, or lost in labyrinths of steep
ravines, or to stumble over slides of
mou-covered rooks that had fallen
from overhanging mountains. It rained
almost every day. Every night the
thunder rattled over the dill* with
terrifio reverberations, and tierce flushes lit up wierdly tall trees covered
with wreaths of moss, mid the forms
of tired men sleeping by smouldering
camp fires.
How our men managed to gst along,
carrying packs whioh, uf necessity,
were in some coses of awkward shape,
seemed to ine little short of a miracle.
They clambered over, or squeosed uu*
der, fallen cedars of enormous size,
wriggled through dense alders that
obstinately got between their legs and
twisted round their loads, wouud their
way up precipices where they could
hold on by little ssve their eyelashes,
stepped lightly over slippery rocks,
and even when they fell headlong
among the pricaly aralea, the packs
almost strangling them at the same
time, took everything ss a matter of
course. Sometimes, for a change, we
waded up to the knees through the
ice-cold water of the river where the
current was moderate, and a sandbank
on the show offered relief.   Instead
of moving continuously, the men, on
account of the weight of their packs,
preferred rapid marches for fifteen or
twenty minutes at a time, with brief
rests between. Al. led the way, sometimes too rapidly fur the slower members of the party. The men ahead
vanished out of sight, and uot a trace
of them could be seen. It might be
thought that they would always leave
some kind of trail, but a spruce or
hemlock thicket, or a bare fallen log
along which they had run, showed no
sign. At suoh times the feeling of
desolation was overpowering. Morasses, tangle, interlaced logs in every direction! We had to press on, and
there were always the thirty-two points
of the compass to obooso from; but
whatever point was taken, we soon
wished that we hod taken another. It
is easy enough to cross or crawl under
one fallen tree; but to push through
fallen trees for even n quarter of an
hour, stumbling into holes or slipping
over soft moss against sharp snogs
seems hours long. One dense thicket
is nothing; but to get into a wilderness of alders till you think that there
is nothing in tho world but alders, all
of them obstinately obstructive, is
something that tries temper and
strength. Tu Canadians, the beaver
is what the eagle is to Americans, and
the lion and the unicorn to Britons;
but wading for half-a-raile through the
fetid water ur thu block or red muck
of au old beaver dam, with the knowledge that at any moment you may
tumble into a hole and be completely
submerged, is apt to make you undervalue the industry of the beaver. But
no one grumbled. Once or twice un
unparliamentary expression burst from
the lips of Dave, but tbe recording
angel did not put it down. We did
our best to keep together. When
that could not be done, we took the
consequences. Sometimes we were
able to put on a spurt for a few hundred yards, where the valley opened
out and the thick underbrush disappeared, or, we struck bear or cariboo
traits that had been used for centuries
and on whioh were marks not an hour
old. It required judgment to know
how far we ahould use these, for they
generally led from a stream or favorite
feeding-ground to their abodes near
the snow-lino, where in our circumstances we had nu wish to go.
Travelling, such as I have tried to
outline, has its charms; but the charms
are chiefly those that the savage appreciates most keenly; tlie delight of
stretching wearied limbs on a bed of
spruce boughs laid thatch-wise, half
contentedly, half impatiently, watching the cook preparing supper, and inhaling the savory smell of fattest pork
and the fragrance from the tea kettle.
The constant pressure11 to get on mado
us rather insensible to the beauty
of the scenery except in the evening,
and after a good wash and the gratification of appetite. Besides, the Selkirks, except at the summit, aro not to
be compared to the Rockies, The valley of the Bow is so wide and open
that the mountains on each side can
be easily seen; but the Beaver and tho
Ille-cille-waut run in more contracted
valleys, and the valleys ore so choked
with heavy timber that views can be
had of few points. There.are not
many flowers, but mosses and ferns
are innumerable, and shrubs liko English holly and ivy, and bushes laden
with wild fruit abound. The chief
impression, however, that remains on
the memory is that of a succession of
forest-clad hills, mountain streams
running between, and always within
sight or hearing the raging torrent and
cascade! of the Illo-cille-waut,
On the morning of September 11th
wo crossed to the north side of tho
Ille-cille-waut, over on immense jam
of loga and driftwood whioh made a
complete bridge, thirty foet high and
200 broad acruss a deep mid furious
river. At this point we were within
three miles of the Columbia, and while,
resting for early lunch, it was suggested that a shot be tired to attract the
attention of our Kamloops Indians, if
perchance they had reached the tryst-
ing place, Fired it was, and scarcely
hod its reverberations ceased when it
was answered. Everyone sprang to
his feet, cheering again and again. Our
fears were at an end. To make sure,
two shots were now fired in rapid succession, snd these wero nnswered by
the same number. Thero could be no
doubt that our Indians were waiting
tor us, and no one wished to delay a
moment. We picked up our loads,
and pressing on with swift feet, soon
after noon reached a high bank over*
hanging a noble river that swept away
to the south with a current of six or
seven miles an hour. Here was the
Columbia that we had left a week ago,
running to the north. In is courso tu
and around the Big Bend and through
Its famous Dalles, it had received many
tributary waters, and now it was some
1,200 feet wide. Right opposite us
was a little eddy or bay, and thero,
near the shore gleamed n white tent
among bushes with throe or four Indians near. A mile or two back ruse
tho Gold Mountains, a range stretch •
ing away to the north aud south, another barrier between us and the Pacific, but cut down, apparently almost
to the level of the river, opposite
where wo stood, by tho Eagle or Mo-
berly's Pass. Tho range was not su
lofty as the Selkirks, but to the south,
ono three-peaked mountain was covered by an immense suowtield, culminating iu a glacier. Tho sun now
burst forth, driving tho clouds away,
and shining on mountains and river,
and away into the heart nf the Pans;
and through air cleaned by n wouk's
ruin, not only evory feature of tliu
wido extended scene, but every shade
of colur came out with inurvollous distinctness.
But could those bo our Indiana '
For, now, children ore seen running
down through tho bushes to the river's
brink. Two Indians push of two on-
noos nud row across nud up the river
to tho point below the bnnk on which
we stood. A short conversation between them und At. reveals that thoy
aro Fort Sheppard Indians frum the
South who hail buen limiting in the
Gold Mountains for sumo weeks. At
any rato, we hnd arrived tint ut nur
trysting place, and whether our Kamloops Indians oame or not, we wero
secure from risk of starvation, and
from the necessity uf turning back.
Postponing till next day any decision
as to our course, wo asked the Indians
to take us and our dunnage across the
river, and said good-bye tu McMillan's
men, saying it with great regret, for n
finer lut uf fellows, modest, patient,
self-reliant) pure in speech, I never
travelled with. Tlie canoes looked
fragile, for eaoh consisted uf a strip of
spruce bark stretched over n light
framework; but heavy men stepped
lightly into them without fear, and
our packs were thrown in without
muoh additional effect. Once'in motion, tlieir long sharp-pointed prows
cut through the wster like great
sword fish; and, taking advantngn of
the stream, we were at tho Eddy in n
few minutes.   On the bank sat several
tents, partly canvas and partly bark.
Skins of black and cinnamon bears,
cariboo, and mountain sheep, and
gouts hanging on the trees and about
the tents, with the unmistakable odor
of fish and flesh drying in the air showed that our friends had been successful
in hunting and fishing. Purchasing
for a dollar an armful of dried cariboo
meat, we sent it across to the men who
were re-arranging paoks for their return journey, and then looked out for
a place to pitch our tent nt a convenient distance from the odors of camp
SiwaBh.
After a swim Jn the Columbia, we
dined off a savory mess of dried salntou
parboiled and fried with a little flour,
.eating our meal with a calm sense of
satisfaction. The Kicking Horse and
the Solkirks were behind us. Even if
our Indians did not turn up, we could
doubtless hire those on whom we had so
luckily happened, to take us down the
river to the N. P. Bailway, or to guide
us through Moborly's Pass to Lake Shuswap. go we felt that we could rest
and enjoy the glorious afternoon. Between the Selkirk and the Gold ranees
the Columbia swept grandly, its banks
bearing only clusters of green aspens, or
on sandy fiats the tall jointed goose, or
snake, grass. The Gold foothills had
been covered with spruce, but fires had
swept across them so effectually that wo
could see the naked, burnt rocks up almost to the bhow line of the mountains
behind. The rocks wore chiefly slate or
granite, with veins of c-uartz that promised well to prospectors. Above the
rush of the Columbia the roar of the
foils of the Ille-cille-waut, three or four
miles away, could be heard, We had
missed seeing these by crossing at the
jam of logs nnd making directly for the
Columbia in tho forenoon. The gap in
the Selkirks through which the Ille-
cille-waut runs appears as almost a direct continuation of tho lateral fracture
in the Gold range to which Moberly
gave the name of the Eagle Pass; and we
could see how natural it was for him to
divine at once that a pass across the
Selkirks oould be found by pressing
through such a gap. As the afternoon
wore into evening, Al. and I took a walk
to inspect the camp of the Indians.
Tbey wure gathering together for prayer,
and while one led, the rest chanted responses and counted their beads, Al.,
like most Americans, detested Indians,
but he pointed to the leader, a man past
middle age, called Baptiste, as one who
had stuck faithfully by lum on a previous expedition, and of whom nothing
bat good was to be said. Going on towards the mouth of lhe Pass we heard
loud cries, but the shouts Were so reechoed among the hills and caught up
by the young Indians and McMillans
men ou the opposite bank, that wo
thought it best to return to camp and
give information and perhaps fire a shot
We hnd not beon long there when Mr,
Fleming came in with a light step, and
introduced to us Mr. McLean, of Kamloops, and four Shuswap Indians. AU
had gone well. Our connections had
been made from the opposite ends ot our
long journey separated by three ranges
of mountains and trackless forests,
McLean told us that we had still to travel twenty miles without a trail; that he
hod left at that point horses and provisions in charge of an Indian; and he pro*
duced letters and a' long sheet of foolscap with a most attractive list of supplies, awaiting us there. Fortunately
we had brought on provisions sufficient
for a forced march, and we could, therefore, supply ourselves and McLean's
party for four or five days more. Ten
or hftcen miles beyond the hones, we
wonld como upon Mr, G. B. Wright
const rneting a wagon road fnrtnShoswap
Lake in our direction, and driving along
it luxuriously in a buggy, and then our
trials would bo at an end. Mr. Mora's
steamer would take us from the Lake to
Kamloops; and .there we. would be within touch of tho engineers constructing
.the railway all tho. way down to Port
Moody.   .
As this series professes to speak onl;
of the Kicking Horse aud the Selkirks,.
shall not touch upon the last section of
this journey of ours by the C. P. R.
from Lake Superior to the ocean. To
me its chief interest was in connection
with railway construction through the
Cascade and Coast range—the last billow
ot that sea of mountains that rolls between tho plains and tho Paoifio. Thousands of Chinamen are engaged on tbe
grade, and more patient, sober, inoffensive, hard-working people, as a class, I
have nover seen. Instead of excluding
whito labor, they are the Gibeonites
needed to do the cheaper and more menial work that civilization demands.
White men nro needed si engineers, officials, overmen, timekeepers, mechanics,
and for all kinds of rook work. Hence
there are more whites in the Province
now than ever thoro were before. Bat I
shall not touch upon the Chinese nues-
tion, savo to express the shame and despair with which I see Canadians and
Americans forgetting their common
sense nnd their avowed belief in the
Golden Rule of Christ, and even of Confucius, whenever our neighbors on the
other side of the Pacific are concerned.

minister, is preparing a statement to the
powers showing that Egypt is unable to
support the presont rates of taxation.
The land tax, he says, is often greater
than the gross value of crops.
London, May 30.—An explosion of
dynamite occurred outside of the detective office of Scotland yard, in London at
9.35 this evening. The corner of the
buildings, whieh was composed of thick
brick work, was blown off to a height of
thirty feet, taking with it a portion of
the side wills and revealing an aperture
fifteen feet wide. Many cartloads of
debris lying around attest to the strength
of the explosion. A brougham standing
opposite the point of explosion was
wrecked and the coachman injured. A
policeman was blown across the yard and
striking against a wall was injured. Several others were injured by cuts from
glass whioh flew in all directions. The
explosive appears to have been placed in
a urinal let inte the wall at the rear of a
large building occupied by detectives.
Later search resulted in the discovery of
more explosive materials. A oannister
of unexptoded dynamite was found in
Scotland Yard, The individual who
lighted the fuse wob beset by an indignant and excited crowd, bnt managed to
make hiB escape by jumping into a cab,
whioh was aoon lost sight of In the darkness of the night and crest confusion.
A policeman and four others were injured, and are pronounced to be in a pre*
carious condition. Sixteen packets of
dynamite with fuse attached were found
at 10:30 to-night under Nelson's monument, Trafalgar square.
London, May 31.—Daylight showed
the damage by the explosion was fully
equal to the worst anticipated. A crowd
of excited people are visiting ths scenes.
Policemen are drawn up in line across
the street in the vicinity to prevent the
access of the multitudes. Orders have
been givon to leave the wreckage untouched until examination by Mitjendie.
At St. James' Theatre, a hundred yards
distant, tbe explosion sounded like two
claps of thunder. Tho audience wero
alarmed and there was a panic. Several
ladies fainted, but no harm was done.
A second bomb was exploded against the,
residence of Sir Walter Wynu. It produced a huge fracture four feet in height
by three feet in breadth. Windows
were smashed and the furniture damaged.
The explosion created great havoc in the
Junior Carlton Club House. Numerous
cases of wine were destroyed and the
club will remain closed for several days.
An hour before the explosion there was
an outbreak of fire at the war office. If
was speedily extinguished. It is unknown whether it was incendiary. So
far as known, up to noon thirteen persons were injured, including five women.
All the wounded are in the hospital.
Five, including * policeman, are in a precarious condition.
New York, May 31.—Rossasays:—
•'We've got England at hut. It will not
be long before she will be on her'.
Lost night's explosion was only a beginning of ner troubles." Joyce, secretary
of the Irish Revolutionary Rrotheihood,
said: "Last night's work ought to convince England that we are in earnest.
You need not be surprised to hear of
greater ones before many days. Gladstone had better mind himself.''
San Franoisco, June I.—The Alia
will publish to-morrow interviews with
English residents of this city, giving
particulars of a secret organization which
has been established, named the "Retaliation Society." The object of the organization is to retaliate on Irish institutions in this country for the Fenian
dynamite explosions in England. The
informant states that the plans will be
carried out for the establishment of similar institutions in the eastern states,

Myth of tiik Golden Fleece.—
Now comes tho worst the disenchant-
ers have tu tell of the poetic myth of
thu Golden Fleece. From the side of
frosty Caucasus there runs a river with
U'jld-beanng sand, onco a very Pactu-
lus for wealth to its owners. It lies
on the bouthem coast of the desolate
rainy sen, which wns the terror and
despair ot primitive navigators. The
country of old wns subject to depredations of covetouB princes nnd barbarian hordes, and the famous wator
course, glowing with grains of gold,
Was guarded well fur its inestimable
treasure. 8o rich a mine, not in narrow fissures, but a sparkling flood,
naturally became the resort of speculators by land and sen. Its valuo was
noised abroad through the length of
tho Mediterranean countries, and its
possession was the subject of many a
bloody struggle. Anciently, and even'
in historic times, the unskilled miners
nf Oolchif, shepherds through many
generation, used to lay a sheepskin in
the bed of the shallow stream, whioh
we would hardly call a river. The
wool caught and held the shining sand
in its thick mat; it was then hung
upon a tree, and, when .dried, the particles of precious dust were shaken
out; and lol you have ihe whole fable
of the Golden Fleece.— Mrs, General
Lew Wallace,

A London despatch gives an inter*
view with Mr. Gladstone, in whioh he
admitted that tho Conservatives,
though lacking in good leadership,
were gaining political unitj* and
strength thro force of public sentiment,
which he said "actuated hy erroneous
impressions concerning affairs in the
Soudan, was in evident revolt against
tlie Government." The Opposition,
he said, were not in a position to make
use of the Government's Egyptian
policy for their political advantage at
all, because in regard to Egypt the
Ministry kept its own council and the
conservative! were lacking in information. But they calculated upon the
public dissatisfaction, whieh he would
not deny existed, and hoped that
•vents would justify this dissatisfaction, were determined to block the
Government for the purpose of securing time, in order to develop au issue.
In regard to the specific measure
against which the Conservatives were
likely to place their block, the Pro-
mier declared that it would be the bill
to enlarge the franchise. He said ho
was convinced that the Tory party in
the House of Lords had already combined to reject this bill. "What will
the Government do if the Lords throw
back this bill 7" Mr. Gladstone was
uked. "The present disposition of
the Government," he answered, "would
tavor an appeal to the country at the
end of the summer session.' Mr.
Gladstone said that the business at
present before Parliament could by no
means oe finished before the summer
recess, but intimated that the Government was determined to resent a rejection of the Franchise Bill by an appeal to the country. Circumstances
might arise, he said, which would render it advisable to postpone the appeal
until after the autumn session, but tbo
appeal would be made if the Lords
threw themselves in the face of public
sentiment,  '_
The New Old Testament.
. The revised translation of the Old
Testament, which will shortly be published, may not take the place of the
authorized version in popular estimation; but it may be fairly expected to
clear up many infelicities and obscurities in that version which puzzle the
ordinary reader.
The "unicorn," which never existed
outside the English Bible, will at lost
be killed, and the "wild ox" substituted in its place. The "Book of Jssher"
will be changed to the "Book of the
Upright." Sunday school children
will be no longer troubled by the
doubtful ethics of the Israelites in
"borrowing" jewelry from the Egyptians and then running away with it.
Tlie revised translation will rightly
state that they ask for gifts, not loan's,
Joseph's many-colored "coat" will be
a "tunic," The celebrated passage in
the Book of Job, "Yet in my flesh
shall I see God," will be changed to
"Yet out of my flesh," etc. "Judgment also will I lay to the line, and
righteousness to the plummet," will
read: "I will make judgment for a line
and righteousness for a plumb line."
In Psalm vii, the passage "Thou host
mode him a little lower than the an-
f;els," will be: "Thou host made him a
ittle lower than God." In Psalm
xxxvii the passage, "Fret not thyself
in any wise to do evil," will be changed
to "Fret not thyself; it tendeth to
evil." And in Psalm Ixviii the passage,
"The Lord gave the word; great was
the company of those that published
it," will be made to read; ''Tho Lord
giveth the word, and the women that
bring glad tidings are a great host."
These are fair samples of many of
tho changes which will be mode. The
aim of the translators has been to reproduce the meaning of the original as
closely and accurately as possible. It
is pleasant to know that this object
will be attained without affecting any
uf tho great dogmatic statements contained in the authorized version. The
revision will simply clarify the present
venerable translation.— N. Y, Tribune.
The Burglar's Love-Maklng.
It has often been said that nothing
save business success and money constitutes a claim to social recognition
on this coast; but, as even with such
illustrations of that fact as the Sharon
trial before them our Eastern friends
can hardly understand how absolute
said rule is here, we can hardly expect the following perfectly true incident to be believed out of our own
State:—
One night not long ago the duughtor
of one uf our best citizens was awakened by a noise in her room, and upon
sitting up discovered a man disguised
in a block mask standing beside her
bed and calmly contemplating her features by the aid of a bull's-eye lantern.
"Don't be alarfned, miss," he said;
"I haven't taken anything yet"
"Bless me!" said the girl; "I do believe it's a burglar."
"Of course it is," said the housebreaker, with au ungratifying smile,
as he lit a cigarette. "And I'm proud
of it."
"What do ynu want?" demanded
the young lady.
"Well, I did want to sample your
jewellery case," said the robber, "but
yuu looked su pretty lying there with
youraburn hair—just my style—that
I couldn't help waking you to see if
you also had dark eyes. I'm terribly
fend of light hair and dark eyes myself."
"Well, I have," said the young
lady glancing at the mirror. "But I
must look alright in this—this dress."
"On the contrary, white is becoming to you," said the disciple of Jimmy
Hope, tenderly. "By the way, nre
you engaged 1"

"He'spoor, isn't he?"

my dear girl, don't you know there is

nursing babies In some stuffy back
room for the next ten years, do you ?"
"N*o-n-o," murmured the girl.
"Then why not let this fellow slide
and take me ? I'm pretty comfortably
filed. Business has been pretty good
this season, and our profits are large.

"Why, certainly. I expect to have

Day and Night In Egypt.
The air is simply perfect; bracing,
and yot not cold, except in the early
morning. It is a deligtf ul experience
altogether, and we all enjoy it thoroughly. I think I like the early mornings best;'for I generally wake about
half-past four, and, just drawing back
the curtains of my window, enjoy the
gorgeous vision of an Eastern night,
quite different from anything we ever
see in our cold, northern clime. Great
as is the contrast between an English
and an Egyptian winter, in the heat of
the sun, and the cloudlessness of the
sky durim*- the day, I think the nights
are even moro remarkable. Tho atmosphere is so clear that each star of
any magnitude seems almost like n
moon, and costs its independent track
upon tho water; while, as to the moon
herself, how can one describe the
beauty of that pale golden sphere, that
hangs suspended like a huge globe from
the deep azure vault of heaven, shedding bo strong a light that it is easy to
read by itl Towards six the stars begin to pale, and even the moon to lose
some of her effulgence, before the
bright light of the coming dawn, which,
in its turn, has to give way to the rising sun, the earliest rays of which gild
the mountain tops, and throw a roseate
tint over the desert wastes of sand
stretching into the far distance, and
over the fields of dazzling green nearer
at hand. Soon the whole landscape is
flooded with life and light; and another
bright, cloudless Egyptian day has
begun. But if the sunrises orp beautiful, what shall I say of the sunsets?
About the one thero is almost an air
of chilliness—a hope and promise of
what is to come, mingled with a feeling of responsibility and a sort of half
dread of what- the day may possibly
bring forth. About the other there is
a sense of fulfilment and repose, before
night comes and throws her mantle

Indian Coujurors.
The stories told by eastern travelers
of the tricks they have witnessed by
conjurun in India and other countries
almost surpass belief, and would be
wholly disbelieved were not the testimony so universal and credible as to
forbid all doubt or scepticism. A correspondent who describes how a Hindoo magician made a boy disappear in
a cloud of smoke and then brought
him forth out of a vessel which ho
caused to come out of the earth, tells
of the following extraordinary tricks:
"One of theso consists in the conjuror
taking a bait of wood that had been
perforated in several places, and
through which stringB were passed,
and hurling it into the air. Up it
went, dragging the curd after it, and
finally disappearing. The head man
now instructed a buy assistant to
mount, which he did, climbing up the
cord, until finally the spectators lost
sight of him, or thought thoy did.
Tho fakir now seemed to be in distress at losing him, and called loudly;
then, as if in a rage, ho seized the
rope and clambered up after him, having a knife in his mouth. In a fow
moments a dismembered leg, all bloody,
fell to the earth; then another, several
fingers, and finally the head and trunk;
finally the old fakir himself appeared,
his clothes covered with gore, looking
like a butcher. Au soon as he recovered from his evident exertion he
went through some mummery, and
collecting the dismembered and bleeding parts, gave the body a push, waved
his hands over it, and seizing the body
by the hand jerked it to its feet, and
off it walked nothing the matter with
it. In Bangkok a similar feat was
witnessed a few years ago by Ralph
Churchill. The juggler tossed a rope
ladder into the air, and sent goats,
dogs, cats, boys, alligators' up one
after another. All of them appeared
running toward him from a distant
quarter ten minutes later. Tliese are
tricks that seem almost superhuman,
yet are ludicrously simple when
known."

Would do to Bed.
Some years ago tho students of a
dertain college in the State of New
(York were in the habit of voting in
'the town, as they had a right to do,
instead of at their homes. But one
year the political party against which
the students usually voted secured the
control, and appointed two or three of
their adherents guardians of the ballot
box.
As one student after another presented his vote, one of these officials,
a pompous, strutting man, challenged
him. Several students had yielded
rather than enter into a contest with
the "loud" man. But at last there
a homely, awkward student,
gifted with a large stock of mother
wit.
"Stop!" cried the pompous man,
imperatively, as the student was about
lo vote. "Are you a voter?"
'Yea, sir," drawled the student.
'Where do you live?" demanded
the man, thinking to mako short work
of the green youth.
''Why here, sir.''
'I mean, whero do you reside?"
'Why, at the college, sir."
You are a student there?"
'Yes, sir."
'You are merely a student, and yet
claim to reside hore?"
"Yes, sir, I reside here. Where
elso should I live and attend this
college?" roplied the student,
"You know what I mean well
enough," said the pompous man, im*
patiently.    "Don't you ever go away?"
"Of courso I do, sometimes. The
safety of the town doesn't require iny
constant presence," drawled out the
student,
A laugh ran through lhe crowd,
and the pompous man grew red in the
face. But he gathered himself up fur
a final effort.
"Young man." said he, solemnly,
these evasions ate of no avail,   Answer me this one question:  If  you
were sicx, where1 would you go?"
The student hesitated,-as if ho did
not like to say "Home, air," or
"Where my parents live,"
"I insist on an answer," persisted
the official, with the the triumphant
air of a man who has driven his opponent into a corner. "Where would
you go if you were sick?"
"Well, drawli-d nut the student,
if I must tell, I should—I should—
go to bed."
Amid the roar of laughter which
rang the town hall the pompous man
stepped aside and the student handed
in Iub ballot.
