AUCTION MUM.
. By T. J. Trapp, Auctioneer, ut Ewen's

Fishermen's Supplies and Hamilton's
trotting mare "Bella."   Steady,
IPailg f riti«lt Columbian
Ikurnlar Evening, gen, a, laat.
Tlio tremendous storm predicted
by Prof. Wigging, of this city, and
announced in the Sent York Tribune ot May 10th, 1881, and in the
Detroit Free Press ot Augirnt 22nd,
1883, is due to strike Amerigo on
tbe 19th of September next. Prof.
Wiggins expects it to be the moat
violent blow of the century. The
storm, which will originate in the
.Artie circle, i* to cross the meridian
of London, England, an the 16th,
moving westward aoros* (he Atlantic. The wind on the Iflth will be
south-east at Halifax, A counter
wave sweeping aero** the great
lakes from the north-east will roar
over half the Continent, the gale
being at it* height along the Atlantic on the 19th, when the storms
meet. The professor is keeping
pretty quiet just now, paying mote
attention to the Finance Department than to the elements.
When will Sir John Mcdonald
give the more thoughtful portion of
the public the satisfaction of hearing from him something elevating
in tone, something adapted to awak
en in the minds of Canadians generally a sense of duty to their country,
and not a mere greed for local advantages at the general expense!
We grieve to have to recow the
Let that in his tour hut year
through the Ontario constituencies,
hardly anything wa* heard bom
our veteran stateman, but a continuous appeal for support for his
government on the ground that it
had done such and such things for
the several constituencies, and had
put money into people's pockets
through the National Policy. And
we grieve furthor to notice the
same tono again in the Premier's
New Brunswick speeches.' He
drops a hint to the people of St.
Stevens, that they had better "press
upon the government the necessity
for some practical return to the
town from the large expenditure
made upon the railways of the country." Ever the old note—jupport
me, and it will be money in your
pocket! Really, is this the highest
lesson in public duty and political
principle, that the man that has
reached the very summit of honor
in this country can teach! There
i* no mistake about It: the public
opinion of Canada it terribly apathetic—Montreal Star.
It would seem from many indication* that there is some growth of
sentiment in this province in favor
of the union of Oanada with the United States. From expressions freely
nude by prominent business men,
or a half hour* talk with fanner* in
the market, one is lead to think
that the feeling is growing and becoming more outspoken. This will
strike some persons at surprising,
but if it it a fact, as we believe it is,
it may at well be chronicled. Nor
are the reason far to seek. The
government of Canada hat pursued
a course of running into debt, and
of wasteful extravagance in the
management of publio affairs that
has wearied our people of Canadian
rule. They have despotically invaded provincial rights. They have
taxed out of the pocket* of the people of the Eastern Provinces vast
sums to be expended in the West,
while shaping their fiscal policy to
crush our growth. For people tire
of seeing our oity ttand still for a
quarter of a century while Western
cities have doubled their population
and their wealth. Thii would not
have been, It oould not have been
had we been fairly treated. We
confess that we are in doubt how
far the feeling in favor of political
union haa spread. It is yet an uncertain quantity, but luch growth
as it ha* attained we chargo to the
popular discontent arising from Tory
misrule. Such misrule hal twice
brought about rebellion in the
North-West, and ha* now again
brought the people of Manitoba to
the point of taking up arm* in defence of their rights. Ever increasing in debts, taxation, teotionalitm
and public extravagance has begotten in many mind* throughout the
Dominion a diitnnt of the permanence of the Confederation, Where
the present unsettled state of popular feeling will end it would be
difficult to foresee, but one has only
to read a single day's issue of Canadian newspapers, east and west, to
be convinced that the existence of
the Canadian union rests on no vory
secure foundation. If anything
can stop the growth of popular discontent in tho Maritime Provinces,
and the direction it is now taking,
it will be full reciprocity with the
neighboring Republic. The Government have aet their faces against
reciprocity,   If they persist in thii
course, they must be held responsible
for the consequences.—St. Jolm (N.
B.) Telegraph. '

GLADSTONE'S U. S. INVITATION.
London, Sept. 7.—Commenting on
the invitations to Gladstone from the
executive committee to attend the centennial celebration at Philadelphia of
the adoption of the American constitution, the Timet says: "Englishmen
will not fail to gratefully recognise the
kindly feeling that prompted the invitation. We are sorry as Mr. Gladstone
waa chosen that he it unable to accept,
but we find it difficult to discover how
the conclusion wa* arrived at that
Gladstone was peculiarly fitted to represent England on audi on occasion.
We should hardly select Blaine to
represent the United State* if an English celebration were in question."
THE EXETER THEATRE HORROR.
London, Sept. 7.—Dr. Bell, who
ha* been examining the heaps of human remains deposited in the stable
yard near the Theatre Royal, reports
having fouud forty-eight trunks of
bodies, but it is impossible to identify
any of them. The total number of
corpse* so far found is 170. The subscription for the families of the victims
now amount* to $5,000 and is rapidly
increasing. The coroner's jury visited
the ruin* of the theatre to-day with
Mr. Bell, and then went to the hospital and took the testimony of some
of the injured. The inquest wa* adjourned until Friday.

Dublin, Sept. 8.—The ohief event
in Ireland thia week will be the

parliament, have arrived in Dublin en

TBI FISHERIES QUESTION.
Montreal, Sept. t —The government organ in Canada has tho following to-day and it i* official: It is un-
deratood on excellent authority that
although the exact working of the
tisheries commission is not known here,
atill sufficient of it* nature hu been
•sc*rt*ined to warrant the assumption
that it will not be strictly confined to
the consideration of the fisheries question proper, and the scope nf the com-
mission will be sufficiently Urge to enable the commissioners tu exeroise discretionary power* to consider and report upon commercial questions. Thus
th* whole matter relatiuv to the fish-
erie*, including any measure iu Ihe
way of reciprocal arrangements for
interchange of commodities and mutual rearrangements of certain trade ro-
lation* between the U. S. and Oanada
may, it I* believed, becomo aubjecta
for consideration hy the commission.
This will be a cause for congratulation
aa it lead* to the hope that through the
instrumentality of the oommiuion ii'i
amicable and satisfactory settlement on
a permanent basis of thi* long pending
question may he arrived sit.
NUMBER OF VICTIMS.
London, Sept. 8.—The number of
victim* by the theatre Royal fire is
now estimated at 188.
THE ANARCHIST TRIALS.
Ottawa, III., Sept. 8.—The latest
rumor here in regard to the anarchist
cases is to the effect that there iia too
muoh difference of opinion among the
justicesas to tha form the decision should
take, and the probability is now that
no decision will be filed this term but
the wholo matter will go over to the
■pring turn.
CANADIANS AFTER M'OARIOLE.
Montreal, Sept. 8.—The indictment drawn up agniiist tho Chicago
boodler, McGarigle, which will be presented to the jury to-day, charges McGarigle, W. R. Pinkorton, and Micliael
Hickoy, of Chicago, with having con
spired to injure Jas. Baxter by making false evidence against r him in a
criminal cose before the court* here,
and by placing hi* photograph in the
"rogue'* gallery" in Chicago. Than

bill is found a bench warrant will be
Issued and forwarded to Detective
Kellert and the American officer* who
have been shadowing the fugitive ever

Prosecutor Grceushiold a*y* he ha* no

Tkanular Evening, Sept. », ism.
It is to be hoped some permanent
good will result from the conference
about to take place in Washington
for the purpose of securing an arbitration treaty between Great Britain and the United States. The
British deputation comes out under
the auspices of the London Peace
Society, and will carry with it the
earnest sympathy of thousands of
prominent men everywhere. If nn
international arbitration treaty can
be successfully negotiated between
Great Britain and the United States,
the foundation will bo laid for universal arbitration under interna
tional laws, and the barbarous custom of settling disputes by force of
arms will come to an end. It is
not creditable to civiiiuation that
this custom has so long prevailed,
If different nations can justify nn
appeal to arms for the purpose of
settling misunderstandings between
themselves, the justification may be
stretched so as to cover duelling
and personal violence. It has been
said that the awards mode in the
two arbitrations between the United
States and Great Britain were very
unsatisfactory, and in many senses
unjust; but if the two nations had
gone to war over these disputes the
results must in any case have
been a thousand times more disastrous, besides involving an immense sacrifice of innocent lives.
By all means let us adopt the principle of international arbitration;
and if once in a while the results
may be disappointing, nevertheless
the end will show how muoh wiser
and better it is to suffer wrong
sometimes than to become responsible for the indescribable horrors of
war. The success of the movement
now seems to depend upon the spirit
in whioh it is received by the United States government. If the
British deputation is heartily received, and the government at
Washington takes the proposal into
favorable consideration, there is
much reason to hope for success.
Our esteemed cotemporary of the
Herald comes to us again with a
whole column of endeavor to misrepresent the utterances of tho
Columbian. ' It would certainly be
unprofitable to follow him through
this vast array of words, but we
shall briefly point out one or two
sample* of the whole, In a former
article our cotemporary put forward
the fact that the representatives of
Manitoba in the house of commons
voted for disallowance in proof of
his contention that the agitation
against it was confined to n small
minority. Wc disputed this evidence, and referred to the well-
known fact that Manitoba was deceived into electing pledged supporters of the government by tho
assurance that the disallowance policy would be abandoned by the
government. In voting for disallowance, therefore, the Manitoba
members were not representing the
views of their constituents. On
this foundation our cotemporary
imputes to this journal the doctrine
that legislation is not binding if any
one chooses to suppose that n majority of the representatives were influenced by party considerations!
"This is the rankest rubbish," says
our cotemporary —and we quite
agree wifli him—but it was never
uttered by usl Once more our co-
temporary endeavors to justify his
assertion thst the editor of the
Columbian promised to shoulder his
musket and assist the rebellious
Manitobans to defy the federal authorities, and this is his proof:
"Such an outrage would instantly
kindle a thousand camp fires throughout Canada, and willing hands
would be stretched out everywhere
to help the weak against the strong."
Now, this is the basis on which our
cotemporary makes the astonishing
assertion that we promised to shoulder our musket and join tho rebels!
And oi uno dime omnes, for this is
a fair example of our cotemporary'*
style in controversy. The words
quoted were written months ago,
and referred to a hint that an armed
force. might be employed to compel
the abandonment of the disallowed
railway. And in the light of sub
•equent events it was a remarkably
shrewd prophesy, for when it became
rumored that Sir John had asked
(or imperial troops for this purpose,
indignation fired the people of Canada to suoh on extent that Sir
John made all haste to deny publicly
that he had ever done anything of
the sort, Our readers will see how
ridioulous are the inferences and
conclusions reached by our cotemporary from premises that are distorted and misapplied in the most
unreasonable way to suit his own

A Fortune In Dispute*
Colonel Reynolds, of South Carolina,
who recently died, was deemed ono ot
111 ■ richest farmers in that state. Ill-
•si rlir is estimated to amount lo iiboui
rr I'.ililll. Somo fifty yenrs ago, beum

I .rily of mulatto children, fur whom lie

A few hours prior to his death Colonel

It Is all woll enough to Mty there. I*

Homo.
A homo is not a mere shelter from the
weather, nor is it only a placo in which
to lodge and oat; nor yet is it a showroom lor furniture or a museum for bric-
a-brac. It is tho living place, whore the
courtesies of life nro to bo cultivated and
whero health nud happiness, jienco and
prosperity aro to combino to mako lifo n
sublime joy.
Homo should be tbo neatest and most
beautiful houso your means can provide.
If you cannot afford a whole house, tnko
port of a houso, Seo that tho situation
is healthful, tho outlook at pleasant as
possible aud tbo plumbing, drains and
ventilation in good order. Thon keep
every part of the place perfectly clean.
Havo a place for everything, and see
tbat everything is in its jdaco. Allow no
dirt holes in closets or corners. See tha-
tbo cellar is us clean and tidy as tho part
lor.   Much' discaso comes from decaying
vegetables and stale rubbish-heaps in foul
cellars.
Hcqniro everybody to be absolutely
neat and eurefiil in tlio use of the bath*
room and its belongings.
I rout maUir your garret a storehouse
' for what ought to be sent to the junk-
shop or thrown away. Some peoplo keep
ns food for innny generations of moth*
olrl clothes, which might be given to the
f poor or sold.
If tlie home contains a musical instrument, learn to play on it, so that the mu.
sie will bo a delight and not a bore to
tlioso who listen.
' livery meal ought to bo a pleasant festivity, however plain tholfare. Bring to
tho table all the joyful good cheer you
have. Pleasant conversation at table iB
a delightful seasoning for meal*. It
keeps oil' dyspejisia too.
Every ono who lives in the horn*
should contribute his or her (ull shore ot
all that helps to mako home happy. Any
ono who is sulk}', or sour, or cross, ought
not to come to the table, bnt should go
to somo private corner, or to the cellar,
- rather than shed gloom over the others.
However tired or overworked you may
be, it is no reason for being growiy oi
severe. Wo all havo our burdens to
benr.   Let us bear them cheerfully.
Mako friends and neighbors and guests
wcleomo when thoy enter the house, and
bid them heartily make themselves at
homo.
Parents should mako home the place
to which thoir children will look nock
with tender and loving memories, however fur they may wander from It in their
aftor life.—Homo life and homo surroundings have a powerful influence on the
.nextgeneration..

A person speaking only the English
language may moot with amusing inci-
ileuls while travelling in Kuropo. For
example, nn English clergyman stopping
ut a Swiss hotel, desiring ink, got out his
"phriisi'liiiiik," looked carefully through
to tin. I tlio French, word for ink, and tailing iu bis search, concluded to sail in on
his I'ligli.-rlr. llo rang his bell and the
i hnuilicr-niaid eamo to tho door. "Will
you bring me soriio ink?" slid ho. Sh*
stood slatue-like, aud he repeated, "Ink I
ink I" tihe wont out, but very noon re-
lurnod mid naked him, {tartly in French
iiiirl irr poor English, whether he would
havo it wnrinod. Again, on one occasion,
I gavo it railroad conductor in Germany
a sniall silver coin in order to have the
compartment wo woro in all to ourselves.
After riding some distance we came to t
station where he was replaced by another 'conductor. , Before leaving he cam*
and spoke to us in German. Supposing
he desired to seo onr tickets, I extended
my hand with them, at which he shook
Iris head. Wo then thought we must
change cars again, having ridden twenty
miles without doing so, and all rose, at
which movement ho A second time shook
bin head.' We next tfceided that it certainly must bo timo to have our baggage
vised, as it was four hours since the last
examination, and wo accordingly pulled
down our valises nnd started for the door,
whereupon tho conductor not only shook
hirthcail, but pushed us back and shut
the door. We afterwards learned that
ho, llinmgh innate politeness, and in return, no doubt, for tho silver coin I had
iriven hliu, was simply endeavoring to
Irid us good-by.
While going up Iho Rhino wo bow tour
English gentlemen on the deck sitting
togutlier; thoy called a waiter andonf
end lemonade for four. The man went
away, wofrVmo nearly halt an hour, and
at last appeared with ham and esgsfor
four. Nor was ho far astray, as to the
sound of tho order, diiTcrent In nature as
were tho vioiids ho brought us anybody
Willi a bad cold will perceive it he will
wiiiiut the wolds ham and eggs and lemonade alternately,

A Rich Strike of Coal.—As onr
reader* are aware Mr. John Dick has
been engaged for some timo in putting
down a bore for Messrs. Dunsmuir &
Son*, of Wellington Colteries' on their
estate near tho machine shops. The
bore went down through 130 foet of
loam, gravel and cement before the
rock was reached. At a depth of a
little over 200 feet from tho surface
Mr. Dick struck tho Wellington seam
of coal. The drill went through 7 feet,
8 inches of excellent hard coal, without a pnrticlo|of rock or dirt. This is
a splendid result for it proves a very
large area of the company's property,
and clearly indicates that coal will be
king for many a long year yet. Mr.
Bryden, the manager of tlie Wellington colieries, has decided to follow up
his good fortune, and already another
bore has been started further along

1 Strange Proceeding.
Yesterday aftrrnoon when the Coroner and jury arrived at St. Mary's
Hospital to view the body of Mis.
Wolford they were met by J. E. Lord
tho undertaker and Drs. Hull & Cooper. Mr. Lord forbid the coroner to
enter the dead house und demanded
the key from the policeman who had
it iu iii* possession. Lord said tlio
body wa* in his care and ho would not
allow any one to touch it. Dr. Hall
also stepped forward and wanted to
know on whose authority the inquost
was being held. The coroner explained to him that it was at tho request of
six citizeiiB. Some further altercation took place and it wa* not until tho
corouor assured them that ho- was not
going toniakean immediate postmortem
examination and read some law on tho
subject, that these gentlemen desisted
from their attempt to block tho
inquiry. Had they been committed
for contempt of court the proceeding
would have been justifiable.

The Reckless Rasteraers.
A number of young men arrived a
few days ago from eastern climes
where thoy had heard muoh of the
freedom and recklessness that is supposed to exist in thi* wild western
country. Not satisfied with getting
drunk and hauling each other about
in no gentle manner, they proceeded
to derastate the western portion of
our city by tearing down the railing
from the bridge near Oapt, Robinsons
house. This feat being performed to
their entire satisfation the tenderfeet
considered the damage done was sufficient for one night and returned to
their lodging pleased with their fun
and highly delighted with their fint
wild act on the Pacific Coast. Unfortunately the notion* of the*e deluded young men were observed and the
police were notified of the fact. The
railing will now be replaced at the expense of these gentlemen and thoy
nave promised not to do it again.
Moral—Young man come west if
you wi*h to but take a salt water bath

country.
Coroner's Inquest.
The jury ompanueled to Bit on the
inquest of Viotoria Wolford, docensed,
met again last evouing at 8 o'eloek in
the Hyack Hall. Present James El-
aid, ThoB. Oiveua, D. Lyal, A. W.

Smith, T. Dominy, J. Gray, W. Jennings.   Henry Mathers, foreman.
Mr. Coroner Ferris in tho chair.
The coroner explained that as the
post mortem examination had not been
made ho thought it better In proceed
with tire evidence at hnnd.
Dr. Cooper, ttworii, Batd: I was
called to seo the deceased about six
months ago for tho Hist time, her hus*
band took ino ovor to meet two other
doctors who had been there a few days,
they wanted assistance to deliver her
of a child. When I examined her I
told them she was not going to havo a
child then. About live month* afterwards I was sent for again to seo what
was the matter with her,I waa alone at
that time. I diagnosed her "abdominal
tumor." She naked what could be
done to relieve her, I told her an op*
eration wa* hor only chance, ihe wanted to know how aeon It could be done,
I told her I did not know until another
physician had examined her and then
We would decide between us. She
wanted this done as speedily as possible, and on the. following Sunday I
took Dr. Hall over with me. She
wanted to come over right away, we
told her we would give her husband an
answer the following Wodnesday. H*
came over on that day but went
homo without making arrangement*.
He came back a few days afterwards
and said that his wife waa very much
disappointed and depressed a* the arrangement had not been decided upon,
We then told him he might bring her
over the tint of the week and keep her
in the hospital and that we would endeavor to get her in good condition, rn
noither of us thought her conditio!
favorable at tho time. A week ago
last Sunday Dr. Hall, Dr. Wad el
Ward and myself went up to see her.
She then urged on us to havo the operation that week a* she wa* suffering
so muoh she could not stand . it; but
sho was then not in a condition to
operate on and we agreed upon the
Friday of that week for the operation.
Dr. Hall was called away on Wednesday and did not get back in time and
the operation wos delayed until Mondny. She aeemed vory much depressed
because it was put off again and we
hnd to mako it as soon ob poBsiblo to
satisfy her. Her husband in talking
with Dr. Wad el Ward informed tho
Dr. that hiB wife had beon subject to
convulsions ever sinco she had been
chloroformed. We both told the hu*-
band that if she took one of theso fit*
after the operation it would kill her.
He told us we would have to run
the risk as sho could not live the way
sho was, so we decided for tho operation on Monday. Her husband came
over on that day about noon. It took
some timo to got everything in readiness and at 2 o'clock we brought her
down and put her ou tho table. She
was put under ohloroform and ether,
and on opening tho abdomen, whioh
wis dono by Dr. Hall and myself, we
found thst all the tissues were bound,
down by former inflnmniation. On
reselling the fiist tumor which was in
the broad ligament on the right side
and also attached to the fundus of the
the uterus, we had to work off the
adhesions before we oould remove the
tumor, which we did very carefully.
The second tumor adhering to the
bowels, the peritoneum wu strongly
adhorent to it and very muoh thickened by former inflammations. W» proceeded in tho same way with that a*
with the former one but found it a
more difficult operation. We had to
divide it in order to tako it out. The
tumors were both very hard. The operation took about an hour. Beforo
closing the wound we had to wait
about au hour and a half until th*
bleeding wu entirely stopped, tnd
when we found it safe to do so we
closed tho wound up again. We then
removed hor to bed and gut her
slightly under the influence of morphine. We left then and came down
tr dinner it being about six o'clock
She wo* in good condition when we
left her. We left order to keep hor
under the influence of morphine ao as
to prevent a recurrence of the convulsions and keep down the pain. I had
to go to Port Moody that night and I
left word for Dr. Hall to go and see
her. I came home about 1 o'clock and
about 3 o'clock in the morning her
husband eamo to my office and tnle me
Bhe wus very bad and he* thought she
win dying, I returned with him to the
hospital and we found *he had jutt
died. Dr. Hall followed in about fivo
minutcB. I found on enquiry tho morphine had not been Administered.
By Mr. Ferris: I would not like lo
say this neglect caused convulsions.
I have heen accustomed to operation*
of this sort and some that require much
more skill. The tumor* ware removed in about un hour. We used the
usual instruments, a knife, scissors,
forceps and director. I sharpened the
knife twice and cleaned it afterward*
before using again in boiling water.
By tho foreman: Three person* were,
present when the operation was per*
formed. I cannot say that if my orders had boon strictly carried out that
the woman would have lived.
Dr. Hall, sworn: Corroborated Dr.
Cooper's evidence almost word for
word.    .
Dr. Bontley having declined to make
a post mortem examination and no
other physician having beon chosen for
that purpose the foregoing evidence
was considered sufficient atidno post
mortem examination would be neoes-
saty as they were fully aatilied. Having agreed tn thi* no further witnesae*
were called.
After considerable discussion among
the jurymon the following verdict wa*
returned:
Tho verdict Is that the deceased died
from convulsion* which occurred »ub-
tequent to th* removal ol two tumors,
one from the uterus and another from
the bowels and peritoneum, and there
is no blame to be attached. to any person conperned.
