Speaking of the recent massacre
of Christiana in China, the Chicago
"BeroM says: "The prejudice against
the Ohinese in some portions of this
country is such that the accounts of
the wrongs .done them in the west
do not excite the indignation that
they: should, but .it is to be remembered that the same pfejudioe as
against Americans exists in China,
and that probably in that empire today there are plenty of agitators
Who,hear of the massacre of Christians witli as mucb satisfaction as a
s»nd. lot crowd Would! manifest on
being informed of the last raid made
in Seattle or Wyoming. In both
cases the impelling cause of violence
was the same. The' operations of
Uie mots in China are read of hore
with horror.The*, details of the
performances of the mobs in the
western states and territories of
Ataierjca are too1 often read With a
sihj'e,And, by, .0%ia.feTfflrefJiey
remembered. If it can be proved
that; a. single Christian has met
death in China because of a feeling
aroused there in consequence of similar barbarism, in this enlightened
lepublio, it 'will be a stain upon the
nation i whichj nothing, can ever efface. ! Tne disgrace qf these butcheries is deep enough without it. ! I ;

; ' ''Prince's, counts, aiid SuVes,", says
a cablegram, are in constant attendance on Signor Succi, an Italian,
who has undertaken a thirty-day
fast in Milan. Our American Tan-
nei; long' j ago proved that, a man
oould subsist forty days without
Solid food and without direct injury
to , Mi health; - But the-charm .of
the Succi performance is not in its
mere ubstint'nce from food; it is in
the application of a new development of economy that the ''princes,
counts; And j dukes" are interested.
Signor' Succj does not maintain a
condition of repose during his prolonged fast as Dr. Tanner did,, He
rides,- walks,' swims, and takes violent exercise. He boasts tliat he
has discovered a mysterious and
cheaply produced . liquor,', a ; few
grammes of which, imbibed daily
will keep a man In lit condition for
labor without the use of solid food.
Marvelous discovery arid blessed solution, of the j European deinocmtio
diffloatty,'' indeedl For,*if.> fe*

very' few cents ner" dayi'.will keep

or evehjas in Inland, possible nationalization bl land, with fears of
Which theprlncts, counts, and dukes,
who live on the spoliation of labor,
have vexed theckelvesl What a
pity it, is that Signor Succj did not
discover his marvelous drink ih the
good.old slivery days.- What *fortune '.he,could have mode from the
phintW of Alabaiba and the'slave
breeders of Virginia and Kentucky.
How maiiy tierces of 'pork Unit
bacon.ho cOuld have saved per year
tb the 'ancient aristocrats of Dixie.
How oheaply beneficence "hay bo
practiced henceforth.' ' ■ With an
ounce vial of Succi's liquor in his
pocket one may relieve the hunger
oi half a doseh families at'the cost
of. *. fmctiofi of; a cent, it may lm.
No wbiider that the princes, counts,
uiifl (luHos who rule over and subsist
on .the starving lazzaroni of Italy
await the issue of the Succi experiment with breathless interest. And
yet' the Succi liquor may not be a
paqacea, for all the evils .of, Eiiwjpe.
Man does, not live by bread alone,
and ■ he j may decline to live on -the
Sucoi substitute. There is no reason

Slow Despatch.
In a paragraph which appeared
in our issue of yesterday afternoon
it wus stated that only three miles
of. the branch railway had been ac.
tually finished. This statement
was a most disagreeable surprise to
most of our citizens, and leads one.
to the conclusion that the railway
people have not used the means
within reach to hasten the completion of the road. There has been
jnp haste anywhere. The road bed
was not ready for the rails when
they arrived; and when the work of
laying down the rails began it wns
done without proper appliances
(there was no locomotive detailed to
assist) and the time consumed in
this work was unnecessarily great.
It has been the same with the ballasting. On the 30th of August
the track-laying had been finished as
far as the west side of Eweu's wharf,
and the work of ballasting began.
It has taken over three weoks to
ballast three miles, and the work is
proceeding more slowly now than
ever.: i Until lately five or six train
loads bf gravel were taken out each
day. But a steam shovel was set
up and hnlf the men discharged.
The result is ubout two or three
loads a day. The steam shovel is a
failure. It is one of Onderdonk's
worn out machines, and breaks down
every hour or so. It is stated that
the present rate of ballasting is
about 700 feet per day. As there
are five miles to be ballasted, at
that rate it will require about six
weeks to complete the work. But
the rainy season seems already to
have come, and no one can tell
when tbe end will be. An unusu
ally fine season for outdoor work
hns been allowed to slip nway unimproved, and we are entering upon
the period of rain with five miles of
track unballasted, nnd neither terminal buildings, switches, nor any
other appearance of business at this
end of the road. We have already
stated that this condition of things
is most unsatisfactory to tho people
of this eity who have spared neither
trouble nor expense to remove every
obstacle out of the syndicate's way,
and who have all along been led by
the company's oflicers to believe that
the work would lie pushed forward.
Whon Mr. Van Horne was in this
city on the 3rd of lust month Mr.
Abbott said the road could be completed in a Week, and Mr. Van
Horne said there would be no unnecessary delay. That is over seven
weeks ago, and it is not nearly finished yet.. It has been currently
reported that the syndicate did not
intend to complete the New Westminster branch until the Vancouver
extension had been built. The circumstances now existing would lead
one to suspect that there may be
some truth in the report. But if
this was the intention, the syndicate
ought to have declared it honestly,
and the city would hnve saved
thousands of dollars that have heen
spent in hastening the acquirement
of tho right-of-way and station
grounds. Ko one doubts that the
C. P. B. syndicate would have given
this city a railway without a bonus
in the course of a year or two. The
company could not afford to leave
us without railway connection when
we have such splendid facilities for
doing business over tlie Northern
Pacific. But our citizens preferred
to pay a large sum of money and
hare the work hastened forward
With' Bil- possible despatch. We
have, paid the money, and on it we
are now paying a heavy interest,
but the syndicate has not fulfilled
its part of the agreement. More
than that, we are forced reluctantly
Hy flie.lbgic of events to the conclusion that it has not honestly tried to
fulfil its promises. If the delay on
the branch is purposely permitted as
a punishment to those in this city
who have assisted in stopping the
Vnncouver extension, we must enter our protest against the adoption
of a principle so unjust and dangerous. Without stopping to discuss
the rights or wrongs of the injunction we say without hesitation that
to retaliate upon a whole city for
the tins (if they are sins) of a few
persons whose actions the city cannot control is monstrous and entirely
beneath a great railway organization.
Cotaiss and the Captain-.—Presence of mind, even in small matters,

the harbor boats the passengers had
crowded all on one side, so much so
tliat progress was impeded. It was
almost 'impossible to move them, tiiey
were so numerous, so the captain sang
out, ''Cplllhs, you must get the crowd
oh the other sido." "Ay, ay, sir," and
immediately on that sido was heard

rushed' over to see, thc boat righted,

Jt has no schemes of insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holderscannotbe misled an to thofr contracts.
Its statements to the publie can be readily understood, Its cash statement show-
lug every Hem of Income and how expen-
Its position Is usccrtai ned annual ly from

Its progress has been unexampled tn
the history of insurance In Canada.    ,.^
Its policies ure Indisputable after three
yenrs, and non-forfeitable after two years'
existence.
Its protlts are distributed upon an equitable bUHiH. The protlts to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger prollt-s to any other class,, whioh
method affords superior advantages ovor

Improvements  at  Harrison
Springs
TOE "MAT SAMITMIOM OF BIITISH COLUMBIA.
It i| evident that the enterprising
proprietors of the Harrison Hot Sulphur Springs intend to make that
place one of the moat accommodating
health and pleasure resorts on the
ooast. Mr. Geo. Turner, C. E., who
has just returned from there, states
that no expense is being spared to
make the place first-class in every respect. A splendid three-story hotel,
70x60 feet, whioh contains between
forty and fifty rooms, has been erected, and is being finished and furnished
in elegant style. The dining room,
when finished, will be equal if not superior to any in the province. At
present over 30 men are engaged on
the building. 'It's intended to continue work during the winter, when
80,000 will be expended nt the springs
alone in the preparation of suitable accommodation for bathers. Other extensive improvements, involving a
large outlay, are contemplated, such
as the building of boat houses ' and
landings and the laying out of pleasure
grounds. A tolerably good road has
already been made between Agassis
Station and the . springs,' and to complete it an appropriation will probably
be asked from tho government at next
session. It is understood that a.number of boats have been ordered for use
on the lake, which being a ' beautiful
large sheet of water, boating and fishing mutt be among the most popular
pastimes of those who 'resort to the
springs. Then, again, no' better placo
for hunting and fishing can be found
than in the region of Harrison Lake.
This year grouse have been practically
slaughtered .around the springs, but
the supply does not appear to give out.
During.this summer a large number of
people suffering from various causes
have visited the heeling water*, and
testify to their-virtue. If not Wholly
cured, as has been reported, in many
eases thoy were at least very much
benefited. At present there are 27
invalids " roughing it" at the hotel,
the number gradually reducing as the
season advances. Although the greatest'rush to this locality will naturally
be during the summer months, when
proper accommodation ia provided it
will be largely visited during all seasons of the year. The men whose en
terprise and money is opening this new
attraction of' the province deserve* all
encouragement from the railroad and
steamboat companies, the, press, the
Joverntnent, and the'publio in general,
t cannut fail to have a beneficial effect
on travel and trade, for onoe the fame
of the plaoe shall have gone abroad, we
may expect to see almost a permanent
population of health and pleasure
seekers at the Harrison sulphur
springs.
Imperial Parliament.
London, $epfc. 22.—Dillon, Parnellite, urged the -release of Father Fahey,
the imprisoned W°°(lfard priest, who,
said Dillon, had refused to give bail
because he thought that that would
amount to an admission of misconduct
onhUjMrt.' "•'
Holmes, attorney-general for Ireland, justified the action taken. He
said that, he himself had no power to
interfere after -ttie magistrate had given
his decision. * "if |.
Sexton said.'that he opined tliat
Father Fahey *ould prove the most
inconvenient prisoner that the government ever haa!
Tanner, PanwlHte, followed. After
being twice called to order, becauso of
irrelevant remarks, he was ordered to
cease. speaking, whereupon ho left tlie
chamber shouting, "this house is no
place for an Irishman. I am disgusted with(it." .
Cremer, Radical, drew attention to
the fact that the foreign affaire of the
government will, be -left some months
unchecked by parliament. He was
therefore anxious in regard to what
ought to be done by the government.
He deprecated interfering with Bulgaria. : ..
Lord Churchill said tliat he did not
think the majority of the house or the
people would endorse the - Cremer discussion. He deprecated the discussion
of thd Bulgarian situation. Bulgaria
might at any moment become a critical
crises that might be precipitated if the
subject were prematurely discussed.
Sir Wilfred Lawson, Radical, said
that he could riot quite agree with
Lord Randolph Churchill. He asked
the governmont to declare that it
would not care if the Russians got
Constantinople.
; Labouehere complained that Parliament had no voice in regard to the
liabilities and obligations incurred.
The' appropriation bill was finally
adopted and the house adjourned until
Saturday, when it will be prorogued.

Reply to Hr. Edmonds.
Editor Columbian.—I was surprised
to eee my name mentioned in an explanation signed Henry V. Edmonds. I suppose I must explain or bear the imputation of making false statements in the
council. In the < first plaftt, I imagined
all the reports of council work given by
the Mainland Guardian would he taken
with plenty of salt, more especially anything relating to Councillor Lord. In
council I asked the question (a private
one), has Mr. Edmomls moved bis house
on Ellice street, as it did not seem to lie
0 feet on right of way, and 9200 was a
large sum to pay for moving it tbat distance, Mr. Edmonds aayi no particular
■um was agreed upon for moving the
house. Mr. Edmonds* price for right of
way on that lot wai ?1500, putting cost
of -moving house at $300; he tin ally
agreed to t^jce $1400, allowing $200 for
moving house. Mr. Edmonds says It
was agreed he was to have 3 months to
move the house. This Ib not fact; it was
supposed the right of way would pass
through the house and it would nave to
be moved immediately,

Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into largo use, rapidly, for

who are making monuments of alt kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an

Preserving Grapes
X. Take sound, ripe grapes in baskets or boxes from three to six inches
deep, set in a cool place to sweat for
one or twu days, then line the baskets
with paper and placo in layers of
grapes (removing all unsound ones),
then a layer of paper, and eu on until
basket is Oiled, then cover closely with
paper -and keep in a dry placo with
temperature as near 35 or 40 degrees
fah, as possible. Grapes thus put lip
will keep sound and fresh from two to
six months. Even*temperature ia desirable.
2. Take grapes, set by to sweat as
in No. 1, then take sand and wash
until water runs off clear, dry thoroughly in sun or oven, line box or
basket with paper, then put one-half
inch of sand, then a layer of grapes
(each bunch trapped in manilla paper)
then layer sand, and su proceed until
filled. Broken or unsound fruit never
tu be used. This process has kept the
grape fresh to the following June.
flow to Oool a Cellar.
' A great mistake is sometimes made
itt ventilating cellars and milk houses.
■•The object of ventilation is to keep
the cellars cool and dry, but this object
often fails in boing accomplished by a
cummon mistake and instead Uie cellar
is made both warm and damp. A cool
pln-ju should never be ventilated, unless the air admitted is cooler, than the
air within, oft' at least as coul as thar
ur a very little warmer. The warmer
the air the more moisture it holds in
suspension. Necessarily, the cooler
this air the more this moisture iB condensed and precipitated. When a cool
cellar is aired on a warm day, tho entering air, being in motion, appears
cool; but as it fills the cellar the cooler
air with which it becomes mixed chilli
it, the moisture is condensed and dew
is deposited on the cold walls and may
often be seen running down ihem in
streams. Then the cellar is damp and
soon .becomes mouldy. To avoid this
the window should unly be opened at
night and late—the last tiling before
retiring. There is no need to fear that
the night air is unhealthful; it is as j
pure ns the air of midday and is really
drier.. The coul air enters the apartment during the night and circumtes
through it. Tl>e windows shuuld be
closed before sunrise in the murning
ahd kept closed and shaded through
the day. If the air of the cellar is
damp it may be thoroughly dried by
placing in it a peck uf fine lime in an
open box. A peck of lime will absorb
about seven pounds or more than three
quarts of water and in this way a cellar
or milk ruum may soon be dried, even
iu the hottest weather. — Scientific

Where Ivory comes From.
Mammoth tuiks of ivory occasit ually
come to this country from Siberfc, but
as theae have beeu lying exposed for
centuries, and probably for many thousands of years, ami often buried in ice,
the ''nature" has gone out of them,
and they are not fit for the cutler's use
The teeth of the walrus and hippopotamus are used in considerable quantity, and being of suitable size, aro
used whole fur making expensive carved handles.
Ivory of thc best quality comes frum
the west roast of Africa under tlie
name uf the Cameroon, Angola and
Gaboon ivory. This iB brought down
from tlio interior, and retains a large
proportion of the "fat" or gelatine,
from tlie fact, probably, that it is more
recently from the animal. In this
stale'"'it is colled "green" ivory. It is
wufft translucent and not so white as
the Egyptian and other kinds, called
white ivory, that have been lying a
longer time and in a morn sandy re-
gion, iiml exported to the hunt of the
sun until the aulinal matter has disappeared.
The excellence of the "green" ivory
qnuists; in its greater toughness, und
ip its grrtriug winter by age, instead
of yeltbw, as ' is the case with tlie
whiter varieties. Yet buyers of cutlery, through ignorance of these qualities, usually nrefer the whiter kinds,
which, on tliat account are more in
dtiMmd' for the Sheffield trade, and
nave ihore than doubled in price since
1879.
The sales of ivory" occur evory threo
months at I^ondou and Liverpool,
And sales are also held to a limited ox-
tent and ut irregular intervals at Rotterdam. '■ At Liverpool only ivory of
th-o.,be-*t quality and from tho west
cttuiit of. Africa is offered. BuyoiB
from 'Germany and France and agents
of American consumers attend these
sales, and it is estimated that abuut
one quarter uf the whole amount goes
to Sfiejftield, another quarter to Lon-
don, snjf the otfttr half tu Germany,
France and fli* United' States. --(Jhani-

UHiV. Morrison, Farnham Centre,
P.Q., writing about Dr. Thomas' Metric Oil, ssyai George Hell used it on his
fcopfrbd ft: cdwd'.him trf rhtomatism with
only a few applications. The balanco of
the bottle wiiM hy'an old gentleman
for Asthma, with the best results. It
acts like a charm."
Now that the remarkable discoveries which have recently been unearthed by Egyptian explorers aro attracting such wide attention, tbe public will be greatly interested in the
exposition of those wonders which Miss
Amelia B. Edwards contributes to the
October Sana's, MiBs Edwards is
best known as an English novelist, but
her scholarship in antiquities has
achieved for her the distinction of being the tirst lady to roceive the degree of Doctor uf Laws frum an American college; and as if to confirm that
honor from Smith college at its last
commencement, the same season
brought ber the title Ph. D. frum
Bethany college, Topeka, Kansas.
Her thorough-mastery of Egyptian
archraology ii proven by " The Story
of Taiiis." The progress in exhuming
the buried secrets of the Nile valley
leads tip tti a graphic account of the
work of the Egyptian Exploration society. Tanis is identified with "Zoan"
of the Old Testament. " Marvellous
things did He in the sight of Egypt, in
the fields of Zoan," was the psalmist's
reference to the famous city where
Muses was born and bred, the scene
of the plagues, and the other Exodus
events—a city whoso grandeur and
rich history were unparalled even by
Karnac or Thebes. Oneof the most
interesting parts of the article, is a
realistic description of tho priestly
festival celebrated by Barneses J.I., the
Egyptian Alexander, on his return
from a career ef conquest, followed by
the exciting narrative uf the fiery destruction of the city.. An abundance
ef capital engravings renders the article unusually valuable.
Uow Bohemian Glass Is Colored
The ornamentation of the glass is
done partly in connection with the exposure iu the furnace and partly in
the finishing shops, where the work is
completed by cutting, polishing, tarnishing, etching, painting and mounting the metal. The plaas-houses have
at their command a very eumpleto
color scale for transparent, opaque and
clouded glasses. • But it must "Hot be
supposed that a crucible is placed iu
the furnace fur each color, from which
gloss colored for each ornament ia to
be made. The colors are worked out
by means uf what are oulied pastes,
whicli are kept un hand in sticks or
cakes. Frum pieces of these pastes,
previously warmed till thoy are soft,
suitable quantities are cut -.ft', laid
upoh the foundation nf whit-i ur col
ored glass, and then spread ont by
drawing or blowing. . Dy ■ tliis means
only is an tioun'tiiiioal use of buoli* costly materials as geld and silver compositions possible. Some uf the glasses
thus treitc 1 --»«)ld, copper and silver
glasses—-ro-ii.-'.n still little, or not at
all, colored after the melt' ig, shaping
and quick'oooling, and do not take on
their bright Iuk-b until they are reheated. This is the case with the
now yellow-silver gbws, whjcli continues uncelored after the iniei-meUing
of the silver salt until it is exposed iu
the furnace again. Very fine effects
are produced by blending or over-run-
niiiw of paste colois, provided proper
attention jb given to the laws of harmony. A hlue-gln-s c.ip is, for example, overlaid with silver glass at its
upper edge, and this is drawn down in
gradually thinner tones till it fades
nway at the foot of the vase. Gold
i :id cupper ruby colors are thus combined with green glaaseB, etc. Another brilliant effect is produced when
a, still hot bulb of glass is rolled in
finely pulverized uvetiturine glass, and
after this iu melted and previous tu
the shaping of the vessel is overlaid
with a cmitina of either colored or colorless glass.— PopularSckmi Monthly.
A Living Island.
The alligator ib not in any way an
attractive animal. On tiie contrary, it
is about iuu-upeUoiit in looks aud disposition aa any living creature very
well can be. l And yet in one respect
at least, it is to bo envied: It can go
through life without even needing a
dentist, unless it he to oat him; for it
never keeps iU'teetli luiiy enough .to
give thein uny chanoe i.o decay or ache
or gi-tout of o>der iu auy way. When
an litigator's tooth is worn out or
broken, or in need of any kind of ro*
pair, it drops out, and. b'< hold! a new
une fs "ready to t 'kc .is place. Unt 1
need hardly say * .tho /'iyat^r's
teeth are a joy only Lo itsc.f.
Another peculiarity of the alligator
is its ability to Bleep, Like other reptiles, it is so ci'lu bi-juJed that it likes
warmth und hates cold. It needs
water too, and as the dry season and
the cool season come on together in
Florida, there is a double reason why
tho Fluridu alligator should go iuto
winter quarters. It buries itself in
the mud nfter thu manner of its kind
nnd settles down fur a long nap. '
Sometimes it happens that grass aud
quick-growing shrubs spring up un tho
back of this torpid animal. As a rulo
these are all shaken or washed off
when, with the first warm rains, tlie
alligator rouses itself aud makes for
tho water; but occasionally, for sumo
rooaou, the mud clings and with it the
plant-growth, so that when thu half•
awakened creature slides intu tho water
and llonts stupidly off, it louks like a
flouting island.   „
In one instance, a plover was so deceived as to build ita nuHt iu tho plant-
growth on an alligator's back. Tlie
living island su freighted floated slowly
down tho stream until it was noticed
by a party of boys who wore out fishing. They saw tho plover raise frum
tho little island, aud suspecting a nest
to be there, thoy gavo up their fishing
and rowed uut to it.
They never suspected tho naturo of
the island until thoy had bumped their
boat i-atller rudely InW/it'i'biico ur
twice, nml so vexed the alligator tlmt
it opened its mouth with n startling
suddenness tliat brought i\ chorus of
yells from the nest-robbers, and seut
them oft' in a fit mood to sympathize
with tho plover, which was fluttering
about and crying piteously at tho raid
upun itH nest.
Tho poor bird wns doomed to lose
its nest, however, for tho alligator having at last been tbohiughfy'nvm'taod
discovered how hungry it was, and
dived down in miiu-c)) of fpod, thus
