Tie C. P. K. Manlfnto.
Sir Oeorge Stephen has issued a
manifesto against tho construction
of tbe Bed River Valley Bailway.
It eoald net be expected tint it plat
from the President of the Canadian
Pacific Railway company jn favor
of the maintenance of the monopoly
enjoyed by hia company should be
other than a purely ex parte statement, but those who know the history of the company, and have followed the discussion of the contracts
and the loans and agreements between the government and the company, will be surprised at some of
the statements and arguments put
forward by Sir Oeorge Stephen, ln
the fint place, Sir Oeorge Stephen
pleads that the Provincial Legislatures have not the authority under
the British North America Aot to
charter railways intended to oon-
neot with other lines beyond the
boundaries of their own provinces,
Whatever may have been the intent
of the act, common sense is against
this interpretation of it. The Brit
ish North America Aot does give
the Provinces the right to charter
railways within the boundaries. The
Red River Valley Bailway begins
and ends within the province of
Manitoba, and is quite within -its
jurisdiction. Again, the Dominion
Government possesses the power of
disallowing legislation of the Pro-
vincial Legislatures. But tbat power, is one which %as not intended
to be used except in emergencies
such as the defence of minorities or
assaults by provinces on the constitutional rights of the Federal
Government. .It Mauirasrthe strongest evidence of justice in ita favor,
as its exercise oan hardly fail to
breed secessionist sentiments. Sir
Oeorge Stephen's argument is, ot
couns, that ther Dominion Government, having the power is bound in
good faith by the oontract to disallow all charten to the boundary
of Manitoba. This is not the case,
according to law, as Sir George Stephen will allow. As for good faith
the Federal Government is bound
in good faith to the people of Canada td allow Manitoba to construct
railways to the frontier. When the
contract waa before Parliament the
outcry against the monopoly clause
was so universal tbat the contract
was in danger of being rejected on
its account alone. Then it was that
Sir John Macdonald publicly declared that the monopoly clause only
bound the government to refuse
charten to railways in the territories and that Manitoba could charter competing lines, Sir John Mcdonald's words are well-known. "We
cannot check Manitoba," he said.
The conservative press all took the
same ground thereafter, and the
fact of Manitoba's freedom from the
monopoly clause was accepted by all,
Even the Canadian Pacific Bailway
syndicated whioh Sir George was a
member, heard the declarations and
understood the meaning of them.
Ii they did not agree why did they
keep silence; why did they not
speak out! Will Sir George Shephen
allow that he and the other members
of the syndicate were sharen with
Sir-John Mcdonald in his manifest
duplicity. He ignores this declaration of Sir John's altogether in his
manifesto. Sir George alleges that
"hardly a voice was railed in objection to the so-called monopoly
olauie." As we have said, and
as Sir John Mcdonald's declaration
showed, this contract was endangered by the outcry against the
monopoly clause. The Corn Association of Montreal and.if we mistake
not, also the Board of Trade, passed
resolutions almost unimously against
the monopoly clauses and certainly
the voida" of the whole press, even
the cosicrvative press, as shown by
their eager adoption of Sir John
Mcdonald's declaration, was against
it Sir Oeorge Stephen pleads that
tho Canadian Pacific Bailway company "set about 'its work and completed it in less than half the time
required by the contract," and that
it has built many branches, and so
forth, and all because it recognised
the fact that railway construction
in Manitoba was "to some extent
restricted," and, therefore, we are
to suppose the company ii entitled to
consideration. The company did
set about the work and was on the
point of failure, even accoidingto Sir
Geo. Stephen's own showing, in a former manifrato, the exiatenoeof which
he seems to have forgotten. Sir
Oeorge and his company implored
the government to oome to their aid
financially, and promised to allow of
the cancellation of the monopoly
clause on ihe completion of the Lake
Superior section of the line if the
government would advance the
money. Sir Charles Tupper made
the statement in Parliament and
Sir Oeorge Stephen, gave his virtual
promise through the newspapers.
Tlie loan was made, the Lake Superior section was completed, but
the. declaration has been falsified
and the promise forgotten. Can
Sic George Stephen explain why he
has not referred to this also in his
manifesto) As to Manitoba's interests and the interest of tho peoplo
of the Dominion, thoy understand
in wbifedireotion they lie.—Montreal Witness.

a.m.—The weather this morning ll
even worse than yesterday. Within1
the past two houn an unusually heavy
fog has fallen, completely shutting thi
water from view. There is a Tittle
wind over head irom the eut Very
few think there can be a race. The
Thistle is at the Hock, the Volunteer
has not yet come down.
9:30.--Very foggy. Tlie anemometer at Saudy Hook registers the wind
12 miles an hour from thi east
9:45.—The wind appears to be
stronger, though it is yet very foggy.
The sea is gettim? choppy. If the log
would only lift there would be plenty
of wind for a race. Wind 20 miles an
hour.

It is thought that the Volunteer had a
slight advantage as they went over.
They an very close together and going
very fsst, close hauled with booms to
port. They are carrying 3 headsails,
sprit topsails and mainasd.
11.—The wind is hauling to the eastward and is freshening. It ll blowing
from 15 to 20 miles, and the race promises to be a quick one.
11:05.—As the yachts crossed th*
line the Thistle was seen to be to wind- ,
ward. They are beading east northeast, sailing on a course laid towards
the far Bockaways. The Volunteer' is
out-pointing the Scotchman, they have
become very indistinct objects on the
misty horiton and will soon disappear
from view unlets the fog clean away. I
Their relative positions wen unchanged when last seen, being only about
500 yards apart

increased several miles within tha lut
half hour. A steamboat which hu
just come in the Hone Shoe reports
having passed the yachts 8 miles north
northeast of the starting boat. The
Volunteer was leading the Scotch
cutter by an eighth of a mile. Tha
sloop was to windward and both carrying working topuili, and the Volunteer stood up much better than tha
Thistle. There is only one wire working on the Sandy Hook coast and that
is working badly. The rainstorm hu
put the wires down in the woods.
Long Beach, 12:45.-Both lyachti
standing south Jand the Volunteer il
npidly tunning away from thl Thistle;
she is now 1*; miles ahead. There is a
heavy sea.
Sandy Hook, 1 p.m.—The yachts
are in sight one mile south of Long
Bnnch, where turning stake host il
stationed; the Volunteer ia to tha
windward and leading by one mill;,
she will turn the stakeboat in about
ten minutes. She hu her mainsail,
forestay sail, jib, and working jib topsail set. The Thistle has a like complement of uil set
Sandy Hook, 1:20.—The Volunteer
hu turned the stake buoy and is returning to the finishing line with spinnaker to port and mainsail to starboard; she broke a balloon jib toMail
after rounding. Theses is going down
a trifle, and the Volunteer appears to
take to the swell with better grace
than the Thistle. Tbe latter is sit
awash. She buries her bowi dreadfully, and it is plain to be sun aha is
carrying too much canvas. Thl flagship Electra is running on the itir-
board of the Volunteer; all the excursion boats are steering ahead giving
her a great deal of their wash.
Long Beach, 1:40.—Volunteer two
miles ahead,—Poor auld Scotland I
Sandy Hook, 2.—The wind hu fallen at this point to 16 miles an hoar.
The yachti are not yet in sight, Thl

One of the most serious problems
that confronts the United States
government at the present time
seems to be the disposal of the enormous surplus which has for years
been accumulating in the treasury.
This surplus has reached the sum of
nearly $460,000,000, and the result
of the withdrawal of such a vast
amount of money from general circulation is being seriously felt in
the commerce of iho country. A
few days ago a "commercial panic
was avoided in New York only by
tbe most careful management, and
the stringency of the money market
had to: be relieved by the government offering to purchase bonds
which will not fall due yet for eight
or nine yean. The relief thus
afforded was only partial, and it is
generally believed that if somo more
extensive scheme that will enable
the treasury to disgorge a large
amount of its surplus is not speedily devised, the results may be extremely disastrous. The executive
seems to have gone to the utmost
limit of its power in order to meet
the circumstances, but under the
restrictions laid down by congress it
can do very little. The simplest
way to get rid ot accumulating surpluses would be to reduce taxation;
but this implies a readjustment of
tbe tariff and a reduction in customs duties, and the influence of
manufacturing monopolies in the
country is so great that neither of
the political parties has the courage
to face the situation with such a
rjmedy.. It is a very romarkablo
spectacle, and may become instruc
tive inasmuch as it shows the extent
to which abuses may run when government is carried on with greater
concern for the benefit of political
parties than for the public interest.
If the United States and Oanada
were to swap incomes for two or
three yean the surplus difficulty
would quickly disappear, and both
countries might profit by the arrangement Our own certainly
would.
On several occasions we have
pointed out the great advantages
possessed by Westminster as a central market, a manufacturing place,
and a distributing point for the
province. No other city possesses
such advantages at the present time;
and when we have secured direct
railway connection with the American railway system by way of the
sound, and when the improvements
now going on at the mouth of the
river shall have been completed so
as to admit all classes of ocean-going
vessels, our commercial position will
be perfect. At the present time
the great bulk of goods consumed
in this province come to us over the
O. P. R., and are laid down without breaking bulk at our very doors.
We see no reason, therefore, wby
thii eity should not even now be the
seat of a large wholesale business.
The railway tariff is so arranged
thlt goods imported from the east are
laid down for the same rates at
Westminster, Vancouver and Victoria, But goods shipped from these
cities to the interior are not classed
alike, The rate from Westminster
to points in the interior is the same
ai the rate from Vancouver, but
from Victoria the cost of transport
by steamer from that city to the
railway hat to be added. Merchants
from the interior desiring to purchase from personal inspection, too,
will save two days time and an
appreciable item of expense by doing
their business on this side of the
straits. For these reasons it is
almost certain that the wholesale
business of Victoria houses will very
soon bealmostentirely limited to Vancouver Island and thenorthwestcoast,
and the retail trade of this district
and the interior will be supplied by
wholesale houses in one of the mainland cities. It is time now for our
business men to be considering
wliere the distributing point shall
be. Not many years ago a wholesale grocery establishment was
red in this oity, and in spite of
lack of capital and the luck of
proper business methods, very satisfactory trade was secured. That
establishment paid a fair profit while
it existed, and the winding up of
the concern wai not through lack
of business or unsatisfactory returns, but for causes altogether foreign. If any person with a thorough knowledge of the business, and
commanding sufficient capital, were
to establish a wholesale house in
this oity there need be no fear as to
the result As a rule the people of
Westminster are not rich, but there
an tone whoss capital is ample for
the requirements of ntch an enterprise, and we earnestly hope that
before tbe spring trade opens up we
■hall be ami to mpply retail mer
chants on the mainland at such
figure* si will bring to thii city at
least a fair share of thewholcsolo
tmainaw of the mainland.
Mr. ft. C. Wlnlow, Toronto, writes:
"Northrop * Lyman's Vegetable Discovery Is a vahiabl. medlolne to all who are

S10HT9   ON   A   SOUTH    SEA
ISLAND.
X Native Describes the Delicate Details ot
Cannibalism. •
Teetee Hotihon, from tbe South Sea
Island, says: ,
"I myself, before I wns converted to
Christianity nml hnd mingled with Europeans, had e.iten human flesh and relished
it, too. "Why, even now it requires all
my resolution when the craving cornea
upon me to resist knocking down every
plump maiden I sou and proceeding to
bake or boif her. When Fijians want to
Irtiild a temple or boat, or at the launching of a trnnoe, chiefs have been known
to kill several men for rollers, so that the
canoe could be more readily launched,
und the rollers were afterward cooked
ank eaten. ' There was one chief who
killed a man for the keel and one for
every plank that wns put in, and they
were eaten as food for the carpenters.
They used to have another custom—that
of murdering men to wash the deck ol
the canoe with fresh blood, but the missionaries have induced the natives to
cease this practice,
At a battle once at Moourha the supply of prisoners was greater than the
warriors could consume, so they wero
piled up between two cocoanut trees, and
it took two days to cook them. The
raUaruia, or trunk, was thrown away,
ns it would not keep. In 1851 fifty
Irudies wore* cooked at one timo nt
Mnmena. The head, hands and intestines
were thrown away on that occasion, but
In limes ol great scarcity there is no
waste.
"When the bodies are being arranged
for the oven they have a peculiar beating
of the drum. One ofthe natives strikes
the water with a pole ins manner that
is understood to mesh that they have a
biiknlo, or corpse, to eat. When they get
neirr to shore they begin their war dance,
ami tho women on shore respond. Whon
tr.e bout lands the body is dragged ashore
by it vine attached to the left Hand. Then
it is ilrugrieil hy two men, face down-
wurl, to the town, while tho rest go in
ir.ml bin.irlishing their wenpons, throwing til- ir chilis aloft and singing thoir
ut'irl nnrl shrill songs. The body iB
ilrnegrrl to tho chief,' who directs the
iiiii'i priest to offer it to the war god.
Then riiebody is taken to tho oven and
rai-viril. The curving instrument is a slit
iiriiuboo, and the several members are
irut oil'joii.t by joint.
A long, deep gosh is made down the
iibdottien and allaround tho neck to tne
I'One, and the head is quickly twisted off,
lt is not 'often that oodles are baked
whole, but when it is it is covered with s
Muck powder, the body having been
pin. eil in n sitting posture. When it is
lioilerl the llesh is taken from the bones.
"When I wasa boy, Ixrti, aclrief, killed
bis wife nnd ate her. Sho went with him
to plant taro, and when tho work was done
lie sent her to gather wood to make a
lire and collect loaves to line the oven
with, and to procure s bamboo to cut up
what was to be eaten. The good wife
willingly obeyed, and, when everything
was ready, he seized, disemboweled her,
cooked and nte nor, calling in friends to
assist. The woman was his equal, and
he had no complaint to make against
her.
"The heart, the thigh and the arm
abovo the elbow are considered tho greatest delicacies. The head is least thought
of. Tho shin-bones make excellent sail-
needles, and if the body is that of an enemy the chief says: 'Don't hit him in the
head, for I want the skull for a drinking-
cup.'
"Human flesh is extremely difficult to
digest, bo that even the healthiest men
sillier from confined bowels lor several
dnys after the feast, Uouerully vegetables are eaten with the hokola, or dead
uen, ss they aid digestion. Thev use
the leaves of the malawaci and thetu-
dnvo, with which ther wrap up the flesh.
. Sometimes they eat the gum which hag
been hung up and preserved in turmeric.
Then they have a fruit that resembles
the tomatoes that I see in this country,
called the borodina." . .

The senoritss sre chsrmtog to look
upon, and filled with abounding health,
for this high sir seems most gracious* to
wnmon, and their eyes sre very lull of
paniiionnte eloquence. One further learns
tlmt these Mexican girls of the best type
are intellectually remarkable, especially
ant nt acquiring language, proficient musicians, skilled in embroidery, and the
present popular surface accomplishments
in art, and often keeping abreast of their
brothers in thst broad yet impracticable
theorising that Is s national charscteN
istic. In culture they will compare favorably with the choicest New England
product, though their background: may
not have brought forth so deepotic an
article as conscience. Still, they are Inflexible sticklers in sll the forms of the
church, snd therln do not differ from
their sister* in the asms walks ol life st
tlm North the variance being solely that
of the creed by which the feminine soul
is surrounded.
Women of the South mature early, snd
when a learned old lawyer talks of the
rare intellectual companionship which he
unjoys with his daughter of fifteen years,
the i-onttrmed bachelor of the party is attentive snd decorously silent, but quite
too obviously skeptical. But this paternal
judgement h afterward confirmed by k
sensible snd disinterested feminine sdvo-
cnte, who asserts some of the generalisa-
t'or.s embodied above. When women
grow enthusiastic ovw women, one is
very safe In beBerlng In the pomsaion

HOUSEHOLD-NOTES.
Ali-lns tlio House.
As all good housekeepers know that
the airing of the house is of very great
importance to tho health and comfort of
its inmates, tho attending to this tusk
should be ono oi the flrst duties of such
peoplo.
Do not ventilule tiro rooms by opening
nil tho windows, top nud bottom mike, ut
onee, na I hnve known some women to
do, for by so doing you not only venlilnto
tiio house, but nlso your crude ideas of
ventilation. The lower pnrt of ti window
should never bo mined for tlie purpose
of ventilation, unless iu vory wnnn
weather, or when wishing to air tho brrd
covering. The poiaonoun air exhaled liy
the inmates of the house arises,' and,
consequently, should pass out throu,'li
the opeuiig niiule by lowering tlu trp
ntmli, nt the smile time rdloiviivi thii |nn\r,
clear uir from the outside lo rush into the
room. Til r: nre uoiilu ln'r'.iri'S, t) lie
mire, in which llio »iHilarys rl r not let
down from Ihe top, leaving the ventilation'
of the rooms to the lifting of the lower
wish. Well, tlio sooner such windows
uro innde lo open both wuys, the bottor
it will be for tlio uiring of tlie honsj to
which they are attached, nnd to the ho.ilth
of the neojile who livo in it.
Mnny persons occupying a chamber at
night Bleep with the window down some
inches nt the top, giving us a reason thut
they ennuot sleep otherwise. Thi r may
ho all Tory true, because they hnvo been
accustomed to rlo this from chiKlll ro I,
and having naturally strong co.isl.t itioris
it doos tliein no materia! li.ir.n. J'.ut this
way of sleirp'.ng is not nrlvisalil.; lor nny
one in achiinilo such ns ouVu, w' rr on
retiring wo leave the weathers'it nui
mild, und during tho night wri'rr up
shivering to mid more covering, th r consequence of n chilly, damp, nortli-enst -r!y
wind that bus sprung up while wo. w ro
nsloep. Fin- better for us to ventilate tlio
room well during the day, nud dopcnl on
the quantity of fresh air thus obtained,
with tho uddition of whnt comes in at
tho windows, which nro never air tight,
than to endanger the health of our families ami ourselves by tho inhalation of
damp night air.
Before going from the chamber in tho
morning, Tift from the bed nil tho covering and arrange it on chairs in su.-li a
way thut the air will have true access to
every part, open the windows, then leave
the room, closing tbo door after you.
Don't worry nbout letting tho bed stand
unmade, but bo sure it is well aired beforo attempting to make it, no mutter if
it does wnit until afternoon; then turn
the bed, if uot too heavy, in which caso
shako it well, and proceed to cover as
usual.
The other rooms may bo ventilated by
letting down the top sush of the win.lows,
and nftcr closing the doors letting them
remain so until fully nirorl, unl ss in r.iw
damp wenthcr, at which tim r tin air thnt
comes from opening doors is, generally,
all that is needed.
Nevor open tho window of tt room,
either top or bottom, in whicli them is
a sick person, without flrst mklii; the
advice of a physician, its in some eases,
notably acute lung discus-s, tlio least
draught very often proves fatal.
* Wearing Wrnps In CIrrmrlt.
A custom among tho l.idJnB against
which the doctors protest: The heavy
silk plush, fur trimmed wrap is th t tos'i-
ionulile ruge among tlu women this
unison, The silk plush coat of this year
is trimmed with otter or beaver I'ur, irom
three to six inches deep. J'vcn n soiil-
ikiu coat without trimming in not nu
fait, although it has not altogether lost
caste. Philadelphia doctoife have, however declined against tho heavy wrup,
and especially ugninst tho fur collar.
One of the most eminent specialists up rn
diseases of tho throat and lungs says that
tho Improper uso of heavy irlouktr-g i r
this climate has been the cause of.more
diseases nf tho throat ami lungs thrill
anything he knows of. 'JJ.it," nil I li ■,
hopelessly, "they will we'n'r them ii th ■/
sll die, nnd I am only given ere lit ior
having a splto against tlio furriers.
Women go into heated mints with these
heavy wraps on? and with a li 'tivy fur
collar about their necks. They keep un
tho clonks until they uro In n profuse
perspiration ; then thoy throw buck in j
collars, and half unbutton the gariu.'iits.
Perhaps in a few minutes they go out in
the cold air again, and do not close up
the coats until warned by tho chilly blasts
that buttons are needed. Hut this is uot
all. Such garments aro too warm for this
lection, ana am nob safe out-door wraps
even, except in the coldest weather."

OU Your Boots nml Shoos,
The efficacy of oiling depends much
upon the way in which ft is done. In tho
evening brush the shoe clean, and then
wash it with lukewarm water, rather to
moisten than to clean it. Set it whero it
will dry slowly. It should not be perfectly dry the next morning, when the
oil is applied, but foci damp, not wet,
however. The best mixture lor oiling
shoes is made of one-half of neut's-foot
oil—be sure yon get the genuine article—
one-third beef tallow, and one-sixth castor oil. Mix thoroughly over a gontlo
heat. Depend upon tho rubbing rather
than the neat to got the oil in—to express it differently, two parts of rubbing
to one of heat. If tho shoes tiro pegged,
as farmers' shoes usually are, and always
should be, got the oil in well between
the uppers and the sole; it will prevent
the sole pulling loose, or the leather
breaking away from the pegs. Shoos
worn at farm work should be oilod at
least once a week. It require! only a
few minutes to do the work, and It is
decidedly profitable labor.

Destructive Earthquakes. — Dr.
Kent, of Lodnera, sends us the following interesting item: "Having carefully ' examined .all the recorded earthquakes from 742 to August 28th, 188C,
I find the amazing loss of human life
to be 1,204,889 persons. In addition
to these there were many instances in
which the loss of life surpassod all
calculations, and no approximate estimate could be obtained. Nine hundred and eight towns and villages
woro destroyed, besides many others
not recorded in definite numbers. 23,-
189 houses wero destroyed, not including vast numbers of which no record
has been kept. How uncertain is
human life! How kind the warning:
'What I soy unto one, I say unto all,
watch!'"

Has Aobousd.—Early this morning
the SS. Mexico, while attempting to
make her way out of the harbor in the
midst of a thick fog, ran aground, on
the north shore of the Inlet, just
across from Brockton Point It
appears that pilot Uttershauks in
rounding Burnaby reef allowed too
much, and was carried by the tide on
the opposite shore. As tho steamer
had little or no way upon her she sustained no damage, the Bhore Doing
sandy and shelving. Captain .Huntington ordered a quantity of the cargo tu
be shifted astern so as to bring her
bows up as much ns possible. As the
tide rose again yesterday afternoon at
at four o'clock, tho engines were put
full speed astern, and she slowly backed out, none the worse for the mishap,
and sailed away for Port Townsend.—

Tho second raco which took place
to-day between the Thistle and Volunteer has definitely settled the challenge cup for this yenr. There seems
to have been plenty wind and nothing
to prevent a fair and honest race, and
tlie result will be accepted, we think,
as proof of the superior merits of the
American yacht. The Volunteer having won two out of the three contests,
we presume the third will bo abandoned. It .'will now be in order forthe yachtsmen of Great Britain to
delve deeply into nautical science with
a view to the next event.

America ind the Dynamiters.
Editor Columbian.—Aro you not
awaro to state that a great many prominent Americans encouraged the
dynamiters, and to arraign the whole
American people, as you did Wednesday evening, tor aiding and abetting
these agitators, are two quite different
matters) It would indeed be peculiar
if among sixty odd millions of people
there could not be found disciples of
almost any causo or ism, but it is very
unjust to arraign the American people
for the sentiments and acts of nn in-
finitesmel proportion of their countrymen. However, I maintain that your
lust statement, (hat a great many prominent Americans have encouraged
the dynamiters is equally as untrue as
your first, and challenge you to name
two of this class and state your proof.
Then are doubtteu a great many prominent Americans who have contributed to the Irish parliamentary fund,
but there nro none of national prominence who can be aaid to have given
any encouragement to those who advocate tho use of dynamite.
Amehicus.
[We cannot mention at tho present
momont the names of any prominent
Americans who publicly expressed sympathy for the Fenians nnd dynamiters,
but that they did eo is too well known
to admit of question. During tke
sime of the Fenian raids especially
many prominent Americans and prominent American journals gnvo them
open encouragement and aid. The
writer of this happened to be residing
on the very borders of the United
States at tho time, and hu very good
reason to remember the Incidents of
these exciting days, Not only wero
tho Fenians permitted to drill und
arm themselves openly for tho avowed
purpose of raiding Canada, but thoy
were oheered on by thousands, of
Americans, including many occupying
official positions.—Ed.]
From tke Northwest coast.
[Correspondence of tlio Coinmbian.l
Pout Simmon, Sept. 19. — The
whiskey trade, continues to flourish
hero. One craft must have takeu a
good load for a small boat. It was
said she was built to go to the Youcon,
but they sny Bhe has mode three or
four trips with whiskey. This wns
about her bill last trip: 290 gals, rye
whiskey, and eight 10 gal. kegs.
Tlioro is a report that the day after
Jno loft here a small launch was seen
among the islands in search of him,
and it is said they nre closo on his
tracks. Alaska has a custom house nt
Tongas, but that dees lint mntter. ; Of
course, while" this is going on here it is
not very likely Hint the ginger whiskey
is going to bo stopped ni Naas; nor the
rum that has been so freely usod among
the Indians at the littlo town of Es-
tington; nor such shameful oases us
that which occurred the other night
when two white 68hds, who were drunk
with H. B. Oo, rum, went through this
Christian village disturbing tho peace
of tho homes of the poor peoplo in
order to satisfy their lust, and then
boasted of it the noxt day. Well, but
people will say, "Is there no ono up
there to keep the peace! Yes; we have
a judge and a constable, but they seem
to take very little notice of these
things and some of the J. Ps. are said
to be interested in the Bale! It is reported here that the government has
removed Judge Graham from the upper Skeena, the ooly judge who hu
really been of much benefit to the
country. From his long acquaintance
with both the Indians and' the miners
his presence has no doubt saved tho
government many a thousand dollars;
and it is too bad if he should be taken
away just now. For some time the
Indians have been talking about whnt
they will do becauseithe old man who
killed poor Youmans died in gaol.
They have already threatened to kill
Youmans' daughter, and some othor
parties may come in for a share of
their revenge. The Indians have the
utmost confidence in Graham, and the
removal of suoh an officer from. such
an out-of-the-way place as that may be
" penny wise and pound foolish." It
is thought that if the country is so
poor that it cannot afford to pay for to
many men, one might be token away
from Simpson, for there is one here
who never seems to he doing anything
from one years end lo the other.
The exodus still goes on from Metlakahtla to Port Chester, in Alaska.
The str. Glad Tidings has been engaged for some timo towing. She
takes from 50 to 00 canoes at a trip,
and tho departure of the fleet is a sight
worth seeing. Tho people go quietly
on tearing down their homes in the
once famed Christian village of Metla-
hahtla, whioh begins to preseut a sorry sight. They are going to make a
clean sweep of il. It is said nearly all
the peoplo will leave, even some of the
bishop's flock, and aome from the
Methodist mission here. Rev. Mr.
McCullough is putting up a sawmill on
the upper Nass. Mr. J. A. McLellan
wu up hero on the laat boat, and it is
said he bought 'the Naas r Harbor cannery and intends to can talmon next
year. It looks ns if the regular fall
rain had set in, and it is now pouring
down. The miners at Lome Creek
have had a poor season, it has been so
short Lut week the str. Nell was
here on her way to Massett, and one
poor fellow got so much grog thnt he
fell overboard. On Saturday the old
crowd-with the big. canoe came in and
went out the same night with a large
load of whiskey. .The steamer brought
a big supply last night, so the Alaska
smugglers may come on and get sup-
lied at the cheapest rate and with quick
despatch. But the worst ot all this Is it
is spreading among the Indians, and
they are beginning to ask what it all
means; ia'it so that the government
license a big company to sell grog, and
then they have to pay a judge a big
salary, and a constable to keep it in
chock—ond yet they don't do it!
Tbe Provincial Exhibition.
ranker Particular from onr Own Cola.
mlssloner.
The first day (Wednesday) wu taken
up by the judges, and it was late
Thursday morning before the public
were admitted. The attendance from
Victoria and Vancouver Island wu
small, aud there were very few exhibits
from the North Arm. The display of
fruit wu not so large or good as lut
year; still it was very fine. The dairy
exhibits were the largest aud finest
ever seen in the province. There wero
so many exhibits of butter, and the
quality was so excellent, that the
judgos found very great difficulty in
awarding prizes. Mrs. Forsytho carried off tho honors, winning first prises
in salted and unsalted butter. Mr.
Thos. McNeely, of Ladners, made n
splendid exhibit of vegetables.. His
beets, cauliflower, sugar beets, and
carrots wero almost twico as large us
thoso of any other exhibitor, ln the
ladies department tha display wu very
fine, and some of them very costly.
It is generally admitted that tho exhibits in this department show vory
great important. Tho display of cat-
tie, hones and sheep is not so good u
usual, although there aro some very
line animals. The grain exhibits are
not nuinberous, but the quality ia
good. The annual meeting nf members of tho association was held on
Thursday night. There were about
00 persons prese'ht, which, is said tu
be larger than at any previous meeting. It was decided to hold the next
exhibition at Victoria, and the frd'ow-
ing officers were elected: President,
