The switchmen's strike at Oliicsgo
io based on a wrong principle, and
in the end oan hardly fail to injure
the cause of labor by depriving it of
much valuable consideration in public opinion. Organized labor, striking because employers will not dis-
.. charge nonunion men, gives all employers the logical warrant to discharge union men. It organized
labor can not persuade non-union
men to enroll themselves in their
organisation, they surely Imve no
right to compel others to pay the
penalty of their failure. This js a
question that concerns labor alone,
is wholly apart, from any question
bearing on the relations of labor to
capital, which alone constitute a
reasonable cause for labor's assault
on capital.—Indiamjiolis News.

of English public opinion. By all
means, it is practically said,' let the
thing be disposed of by arbitration I
Let two Americans and two Eng
lishmen, with power to appoint another as umpire, .be over this thing
and let thoir decision be final. Perhaps it may be Baid that as Canada
is part of tho British empire all
Canadians are Englishmen, and consequently Britain's representatives
in the proposed conferenoe liiay both
be colonists. This is possible, but
it is in the last degree UttUltoly. The
fact is evident that Canada was
never once thought of. In the case.
The idea is somewhat galling, but it
is still scarcely to be questioned that
we poor Canadians in Imperial eyes
and when Imperial difficulties are
to be settled, scarcely count for
more than the live stock on the
property; if oo much Globe.

One result of the lawless interference with tho business of the
whole people by the strikers in the
Southwestern States is the organisation of law and order leagues. Such
a league has been formed inSedalia,
Mo., where a good deal of suffering
has been caused by the men who
struck under orders from Mr. Martin Irons. This league has sent
word to Mr. Hoxie that he need
give himself no further trouble to
secure protection of life and property there; they will be responsible
for such protection hereafter. Similar leagues are forming in Texas.
This is significant, and the Knights
of Labor, will not be slow to understand what it means. While the
workingmen pursue reasonable ends
by reasonable and lawful means,
they will have the public sympathy;
when they get in the way of general
pregress (hey will rouse a lion.—
Boston Advertiser. f \ ■-'
Long range guns are so rapidly
being developed thut the rotundity
of the earth is offering a serious impediment to correct artillery practice, as a target placed at the extreme limit of ths range is necessarily below the horizon. A gun,
therefore, whose range is fifteen
miles is supposed to be the most
perfect instrument of war that can
be devised. This is an error.: Let
us continue in enlargement until we
obtain a gun whose range is twelve
thousand miles. It could be mounted like the Lick telescope, with
equatorial mountings, nnd be loaded
and aimed by a corps of competent,
astronomers. Suppose wuwere involved in a controversy with Germany over the libels which that nation has published on the American
hog. Our ultimatum having been
sent and war declared, the astronomers knowing the longitude and
latitude of Berlin, could accurately
train the gun; the mathematical
corps compute the grains of powder
necessary to impel the projectile;
the engineer corps time the fuse
with accuracy, and work out the
trajectory; and the electrical corps
fire the several cubio miles of powder
at the precise moment appointed by
the secretary of war for hostilities.
The missile would clear all friendly
and neutral nations, land immediately in the center of the doomed
city, and insure peace by leaving no
German alive. Thero are some few
meohnnical difficulties yet to bo
overcome before this gun can be
properly constructed, but I believe
it will yot prove to be the gun of
our national armament.—Carleton,
in Scientific American.

The question of utilizing to the
best advantage to the empire the
great trans continental railway which
Canada has, out of her own resources, constructed through British territory from the Atlantic to the Pacific is now, we understand, before
the cabinet. This question, which
we may all agree with Lord Har-
rowby in desiring to see approached
and dealt with in no niggardly spirit
and with no party bias, is one that,
whether, we look at it .from a purely
commercial and utilitarian stand'
.point, or regard ita military aspects
and its offer at a lew premium of an
additional national insurance against
war panics, has that in it whieh
should command attention. On one
poiitt—the extreme desirability of
providing for every use an alternate;
route to the east to that very useful
but very hazardous one afforded by
the Suez Canal—the advocates, of
commercial, military, and imperial
interests are all agreed. True, there
is a once frequented, hut now neglected highwoy by the cape, to which,
no doubt, in case of a lengthened
block of the canal recourse would be
again had, and, although many of
the steamers now using the Reef Sea
route are badly adapted for weathering the cape, still it must be admitted that for the heavier class of merchandise uninterrupted water carriage, if safe from the Queen's enemies, will be preferred to that in
which bulk has to be broken. But
for mails, military purposes, for passengers and for the lighter and more
valuable goods requiring the quickest
dispatch, it is contended, and not
without reason, that the Canadian
route must always be not only far
better, as far as China and Japan
are concerned, than the best and
quickest route vin the Suez canal.
From a strategical point of view the
cause for this routo, as made out by
its advocates, is undeniably a atrong
one. On the Atlantic seaboard of
Canada lies Halifax, with its dockyard and military storeB, within
seven: or eight days' steam of England. The Pacific terminus is connected with Halifax by a continuous
line of rails laid entirely through
British territory. When the next
war-cloud-: looms up, it may he for
some time doubtful whether it will
buret in Europe or in India. ■• In
the latter case our interests in the
Northern Pacifio will need special
protection. Now, however muoh
useful the Cnpe route might be for
trade, no one would suggest- the
establishment of a military depot at
the Cape for use either in the East
or in Europe, as circumstances might
decide; but a force quietly collected
in the healthy climate of British
Oolumbia could, if need arose, be
transferred baok to Plymouth in
twelve days, whilst on the contrary
they could garrison Hong-Kong in
less than three weeks, or.be landed
in Calcutta within twenty-five days.
So much for the purely military features of the new route,—London
Post.

The plan for settling the lishory
difficulty, which is proposed by the
Pall MaU Gazette, is whimsically
characteristic, not only of the source
from which it springs, but of tho
average British idea when anything
is to be done in which the colonies
are concerned. The almost grotesque ignorance of anything colonial on the part of even intelligent
Englishmen has long been a sland-
ing joke. Those who havo claimed
to he statesmen have not been much,
if any, better informed, and the oasc
with which even treaty-makers nnd
boundary determiners have had the
wool pulled over their eyes by their
Yankee counterparts has long since
passed into a proverb. Their indif
ference hns been so thoroughly on a
par with their utter want of information that, to throw away tracts
of land as large and as fertile as
France, has given them no more
trouble than to toss a copper to a
beggar or to cost aside the stub of a
half-burnt cigar in a moment of
meditation or forgetfulness. And
yet after all the experience of the
i past the Gazette proposes that the
. lane shall be done again. That
Canada has any interest ill the mat.
ter or any right to a single word in
the settlement of the fisheries in
British North American waters
nover seems to occur to this organ

Talmage on "(-ranks."
It was •UBgestoil to Mr. Talmage
that he get up a lecture on "Cranks"
and relate his experience with cranky
people. Be laughed and said that
whilo his oiperienoe waa wide and
varied on the subject of "cranks," yet
thore was one story that always came
to his mind when the conversation
turned on these peculiar peoplo. He
was once very busy writing in his room1
nt a Hotel nnd a card came up. He
gave tho bell-boy instructions that hn
could sue nobody and dismissed him.
A 'little while after the can! oame up
a second lime, and he told the bellboy to tell the man to call on the next
day, that ho wouldn't seo Ihe angel
flnbricl if he called to-day, and the
bell-boy's oyes stuck'oot.' In a few
minutes the oard came up a third time,
and-then Mr. Talmage went down
stairs to soe who hii persistent vUitor
was. A man stepped up to him and
.aid:
"Von ore Mr. Talmage?"
"lam, sir."
"Well, sir, I am an evolutionist,
aud I want to discuss that question
with you. I am also sn annihilation*
ist. I believe tbat when I die that
will bo the end of ine."
"Thank Hod for thst!" ejaculated
Mr. Talmage, as he walked off, and
left the man perfectly dated.—Harris-

'She f ritish Columbian.
Wednesday Morning, May it. 1888.
Open secession.
On the 6th inst. the premier of
Nova Scotia introduced into the
legislature a resolution proposing
that the three maritime provinces
withdraw from the confederation
and form a maritime union. In tin*
event of New Brunswick and Prince
Edward Island refusing to join Nova
Scotia in this movement, she proposes to go it alone. For years
Nova Scotia has expressed much
discontent with the treatment re
ceived from the Dominion government, and, failing to have her grievances redressed, she proposes secession. What the result will be ono
cannot now forsee, but it would not
be surprising to iind the public ex
pressions of discontent growing
louder and more threatening. Then'
is scarcely a province in the Domin
ion that has not been clumoring at
Ottawa for better terms, and there
is not one that is perfectly satisfied
with its status in the confederation.
If secession is allowed nt all, therefore, it will end in utter disintegration, But it is quite possible the
old remedy will be applied. Better
terms will be given to Nova Scotia
as the price of her loyalty to the
confederation, and the other provinces will be forced either to pay the
difference or to strike for latter
terms themselves.
The Mall Service.
A petition is being circulated for
signature at Vancouver asking the
Dominion government to establish
a daily mail between that city and
Victoria, and to let the mails for
New  Westminster   be carried by
that route.   The petition states that
the mail steamer from Victoria oan
reach Vancouver at 2 p. m., and
the mails, if brought that way, will
be delivered in this city by •_ o'clock
or sooner, whereas by the present
arrangement we do not receive our
maift'tfflft?tf o'cUflAW afte*.* fehia
is one result of the very inefficient
mail service now. existing between
Victoria and this city, and agair-sl
which we have been protesting in
vain.     We have no wish to throw
uny   obstacle in the way of   the
people of Vancouver if they "WAiit
a mail- service daily-between their
city and  Victorii,1" but   we must
really  object   to  the  proposal to
bring the mails for  this city by
suoh a circuitous and inconvenient
route.    It is a fact well known to
every one that a subsidy to a mail
route is usually given as much to
secure regular and sufficient means
of traffic as the carnage of mail
matter.     If the mail subsidy is
taken away from the Fraser route,
it is questionable whether the commerce of the river will not suffer.
This  city will   never   consent to
such an arrangement as it is proposed to aak for; and we advise the
people to take such steps without
delay as will  show unmistakably
what are their feelings in the mutter.   If silence be taken as giving
consent, the Royal Oity mny find
itself left entirely out of the direct
mail route, and depending upon the
stage coach for its intercourse with
the outer world.   Tho inexcusable
delays of the mail steamers coming
up the river this yenr furnish the
ground upon whioh the people of
Vancouver  petition   to  have  tii
mail taken away from the river, and
our citizens do not seem to have any
just conception of  the evils that
may result from their apathy.
tion of the importance of adhering
to the truth, Tlie letter almost begins with the insinuation that a man
cannot -gain a livelihood in this
province by honest means, and it
end-* with a declaration that everybody in the country is ready to return to the east! Such statements
could not come from honest intention. There are doubtless many
new comers here who do not intend
to stay, und who will go back to
their eastern homes whenever the
opportunity is offered; but to say
that any considerable number of
thc old settlers liave auy such feeling is to say what is not true. Thore
are a very large majority of our
peoplo who are satisfied that there
is no provinco in the Dominion that
begins to approach British Columbia in attractions, and who could
uot be persuaded to exchange the
beautiful, healthful climate and
scenery of this coast for any other
place on thc continent "The only
prairie lands are tho upland plains,"
says this correspondent, "and but
badly suited for grazing." This will
be news indeed for British Columbians. It may be doubtful if there
are better grazing lands anywhere in
the world than thoso in the interior
of this province. There our stockmen raise all the beef consumed in
tho country, and better grass-fed
beef no one lias ever tasted. This
man Warwick declares that British
Oolumbia can never become a great
agricultural country, because there,
is scarcely any land within it fit for
cultivation. How does he speak
witli so much confidence on a point
concerning which he must know but
little 1 In the Canadian house of
commons, during the debate on the
admission of British Oolumbia to
confederation in 1871, Mr, Morris
stated that he had been informed by
Mr. Trutch "that there were 140,-
000,000 acres of fertile lands on the
western slope of tho Rocky Mountains." It will readily be admitted
that Hon. Mr. Trutch knows a good
deal more about British Columbia
and its lands than the man Warwick, who probably did not spend
as many weeks in the province as
Mr. Trutch has spent years. It is
not claimed that British Columbia
possesses anything like as much
agricultural land as some other
Canadian provinces in proportion to
her area; but she possesses a great
deal more than will be occupied for
the next twenty years, and in qual
ty and productiveness some of it
cannot be surpassed. We shall not
pursue this matter furthur. Warwick evidently belongs to a class of
disappointed adventurers whose lack
of success leads them to quarrel with
their circumstances and surroundings, and who find a childish satis
faction in misrepresenting facts
which stand up to reproach them
with being the cause of their own
failure.

About ninety persons out of every
one hundred who visit this province
seem to fancy that it is their duty
to enlighten the eastern public by
giving their views and impressions.
This impulse,   perhaps, ought not
always to be resisted, but when per
sons rush into a public declaration
that may influence the action of a
considerable number of people, they
ought to be aura that their utterances are strictly according to facts.
The publication of personal opinions
and experiences is one of the ways
in which a country gete a good deal
of free advertising, but it is a way
also in which it is often grossly mis-
represented.   We are led to these
observations juifrnow becaueeof a
letter we have just been reading in
the St Thomas (Ont.) Tims of the
29th ult written by a person named
Warwick, from Springfield, Ont.,
who haa returned to that place from

A Relic of Moon Worship.
In China, where moon worship largely prevails during the festival of Yue-
Ping, which ia held annually during
the eighth month, incense is burned in
the temples, cakes are made like the
moon, and at full moon tha people
spread out oblations and make prostrations to the planet. These cakes aro
moon cakes and veritable offerings to
the Queen of Beaven, who represents
the female principle in Ohinese the-
olotfy. If we turn now to Jeromiah
vii, 18, and read there, "The women
knead dough to make cakes to the
Queen of Heaven, and to pour out
drink*offerings unto other gods," and
remember that, according to Knshi,
these cakes of the Hebrews had the
image of the god or goddess stamped
upon them, we are in view of a fact of
much interest. Tho interest becomes
greater when we learn that in parts of
Lancashire there exists a precisely
similar custom of inakimj cakes in
honor of the Queen of Heaven. From
these facta, the discovery of two buna,
eaeh marked with a cross, in Hercu-
Inmmiii, and other evidences, we are
driven to tlia conclusion that the
"hot-cross buns" of Christian England
are in reality but a relic of moon worship. —All the Year Round.

; Those Effigies.—Now thst New
Westminster is happy in having a
railway we cannot help indulging in
a few remarks, The recent celebration and rejoicings were in striking
contrast to the meetings held by the
Bume party three weeks ago, when
they did not display that amount of
calm consideration or due deliberation
that should proceed from men who
.frequently 'take upon themselves to
speak for the mainland. Now Westminster should not forget that the
house generously voted 937,600 for
their railway without a dissenting
voice, and that when they charged the
government aud their supporters oa
well as tho opposition With* treachery
and conspiracy, they wero not only
doing the whole house an injustice
but were placing themselves in a position1 of antagonism to the remainder
of the province. The speeches and
actions un those occasions are to be
regretted, and before the branch line
is completed we believe that'none will
rogret and wish to forget them mure
than the chief acton in them.— Kam*

Tub Gas Works.—Operations, are
proceeding in connection with the gaa

something ovur nn acre in extent. A
temporary ofllce hss been erected, a
gang of men is at work excavating,-aud
the builders are framing' the timbers
for a coal shed 30 by 50 feet, to have a
capacity for 300 tuns of coal. The
main building will be 33x85 feet, and
it will be built uf briok. This ii to bo
divided into retort bouse, exhauster
room, purifying ruom, and meter room.
Excavations fur the tank are now being
mode. This will be 20x02 feet, built
of briok laid in cement. The gasometer will be 20x00, with a capacity of
50,500 cubic feet. The works are the
same size as those erected at Tacoma.
It ii expeoted that the building and
works will be completed In about four
months. At present tliere are only 15
moil at work, but as soon as brick oan
be obtained this forco will bo increased

It was resolved to proceed to organize a local auxiliary ut New Westminster immediately.
The committee nn resolutions presented the following resolutions, which
after discussion were adopted:
Whereas a rapidly increasing number of the Indians of British Columbia are in ths habit of resorting to the
hop grounds uf Washington Territory
during'the picking season and engaging
in that industry; and whereas the
Ha-ges-.i-ecfired fnr their services have
been largely spent iu purchasing intoxicating liquors to be drunk by themselves ur sold and bartered among the
tribes on the coast of British Columbia upon tboir return, contrary to the
customs laws, the license laws, the laws
for tha batter protection uf the Indians,
and contrary to their best interests; and
whereas this evil already interferes
perceptibly with the evangelisation of
the Indians, -renders them unsettled,
discontented, and regardless of law,
and has resulted in the perpetration
of many crimes, including -murder;
and whereasCffjfrS is every'teason to
apprehend that this evil will still increase if unchecked: Therefore, resolved*, that a respectful but earnest
petition be presented by this Alliance
tothe Dominion government, entreating them to adopt the moat speedy
and effectivo means of putting an end
to tho evil referred to, as there is not
at present anything being done in thnt
direction.
Whereas the use of intoxicating
liquors by persons employed as Indian
agents, justices ■ of the peace and constables administering law among Indiana, and physicians prescribing fur
Indians, is-.calculated to produce in
the Indian mind contempt for those
laws which prohibit them the use uf
•uch-liquors,* aud tu embolden them
in following to their hurt the example
nf those to whom they sir uid bu
able to luok op with respect un nccount of their supposed wisdom and
authority: ■	
Resolved that tho attention of the
provincial and Dominion governments
be respectfully called to this mat tor,
and thut they be rt-i|uestc(l to .use
every moans in their power tu prevent the.employment of person's addicted to the uso of intoxicants in any
of tho capacities mentioned above;
And iu view uf the fact that Indians
are by law prohibited from the use «if
alcoholic beverages, the attention of
church societies be cilled to tlio
necessity of iiistructinj,' their mi-siou-
ttriiT-B as to the Importance of iuculctjt*
imt the principle*) of total abstinence
by preuept nud example
Resolved that the executive bo in-
structed to prepare a bill for ihe
bettor regulation of the liquor tt-atHo,
to be presented to the provincial
legislature at its noxt session; nnd thai
in tho prosecution of this work they lie
empowered to associate with thuoi-
Bt-lvea such members oi the Allint-vo
as, .they may deem desirublu and to
seek such legal assistance as may lie
found necessary.

Tacoma, May 4.—'To-day's municipal
election resulted in the election of tke
entire anti-Chinese labor ticket by pluralities ranging from 95 to 232, tlie latter
being for mayor. Jacob C. Mann
headed the ticket for mayor. The other
officers elected were city attorney, treasurer, street commissioner, surveyor and
two councilmen. In the fourth ward
there were three tickets in the field, the
other two being independent and one
republican. The victorious party are
serenading the successful candidates.
London, May 6.—A dispatch from
Burmah states that the insurgents hare
possession of Mandalay and destroyed
by fire no less than four thousand nouses.
Among the buildings burned were the
Chinese and Siamese bazaars.' The hostility of the natives, who remain true
to King Thebaw, to the Chinese is intense, because of the Chinese openly
avowed endorsement of Great Britain s
seizure of fiurmah, The officers commanding the British forces have telegraphed to Lord Dufferin, Viceroy, that
they arc powerless to prevent the rebellious rioting of the natives and hive
urgently asked for reinforcements.
London, May tl.—A blue book has
been issued containing the important
acta of parliament of the last century in
relation to Ireland. They are four in
number and are: The act of 1719, the
object cf whicli was to better secure tbe
dependence of the kingdom of Ireland
on the crown of Great Britain; the act
of 1782, which repealed the former ne*-
sure; the act of 1783, whioh was intended
to remove doubts as to tbe jurisdiction
of the Irish parliament, and the last act
of the union. The Pall Mall Octette,
commenting on the anarchist riots at
Chicago and Milwaukee, says that Europe having adopted the system of exporting paupers to the United States is
primarily answerable for the troubles,
and secondly, that America, which hu
shown a fatal kindness In receiving these
paupers, is now reaping the remits of
her folly in trying to make American
citizens out of the scum of Europe. The
Gazelle quotes, apropos ot the remarks
of James Russell Lowell, the -'sower:"
The St. James Gazette lauds the promptness of the Americans in discussing practical socialism at the point of the bayonet and with volleys of musketry, thus
ignoring the aphorism that "force is no
remedy." Tbe paper adds the expression of trust that the American republic
will now restrict free trade in murderous explosives.
There are a number of Mormon missionaries in Switzerland who are trying
to induce girls to emigrate to Utah,
promising them happiness and prosperity. Some who have already been victimised write from Utah bitterly bewail
ing their fate.
Nkw York, May 7.—An Irish home-
rule meeting at the academy of music tonight was a great success. Among those
on the platform were ex-Postmaster-Uen,
James, Governor Hill, Mayor Grace, and
Governor Leon Abbott, of New Jersey.
Later Senator John Sherman, Congress
men Grosvenor and Butterworth of Ohio,
and Gen, Stewart L. Woodford also
arrived and were escorted to seats on the
platform. Mayor Grace was made temporary chairman, and spoke briefly of
the objects of the meeting. Resolutions
wero passed eulogizing Gladstone and
Parnell, congratulating Ireland on its
coming emancipation, and congratulating
England on the progress in public sentiment which had permitted the introduction of the home-rule measure in parliament. The resolutions will be presented
to Messrs. Gladstone and Parnell by Mr.
J. J. O'Douahue, wbo will sail with
them for Liverpool to-morrow.
Halifax, May 7.—Two or three American fishing schooners have appeared
in the basin at Digby within the post
day or two for the purpose of buying
bait. In response to a telegram the government steamer Lansdowne weat this
morning and giving chase to tho David
J. Adams, of Gloucester, overhauled her,
and took ber back to Digby, where she
will be taken to St. John to-night under
seizure for violating the fishing Jaws.
The Adams was put in charge oi a' prize
crew to-night and 13 members of the
schooner's crew were transferred to the
Lansdowne. This is the first American
fishing schooner that hu been seized by
the Dominion authorities.
Montreal, May 7.—For some time
ths customs authorities have understood
that the firm of Patterson, Klsock k Co.
were passing goods at an undervaluation.
Several times they attempted to gain
access to the books of the firm and obtain tlie necessary information, but failed.
This morning they made another attempt
and a struggle ensued as the firm had
taken legal advice, and were informed
that their boo'ts could not be forcibly
taken. During the altercation revolvers
were drawn aud the police were called
in, who arrested the customs officers.
They returned to the store subsequently,
but were again baffled by the firm who
had locked the books in the safe. The
oflicers then seized the stock which is
valued at 8175,000. The firm hava taken
legal prceeediiigs against .-the customs
authorities. Tlie firm state that they
arc innocent of nuy wrong doing. It is-
snid that the charge against the firm ir
of a very serious character.

do not feel disposed to grant any bonus
to the flour mill this season nor hare
they the means at their disposal. The
reeve and Coun. Arthur were empowered
to have tiie requisite number of turnouts
made on the Chilochleu slough road.

,   Maple Ridge council.
In accordance with the bylaw regulating the assessment for 1686, council met
as a court of revision on the lst inst.
Tbe reeve occupied tbe chair. The
assessment roll was revised and appeals
considered. Messrs. Brooke and Clap-
tratt's application to be entered on the
assr-ssment roll was granted. A reduction uf $100 was made in Judgn Crease's
assessment. On motion of Coun. Fer
gusou, seconded by Coun. Laity, the
court closed.
Council met at the usual time; nll the
members present. Tenders for work in
different parts of the municionlity were
read. On motion, road committees were
authorised to award contracts to lowest
teadcrers. The revenue amendment bylaw passed its first and second readings,
Mr. Peter Calder aad Mr. John Hinch
were appointed pathmnsters in place of
Messrs. Robiiuon and Ferguson. The
other pathmasters for last year were reappointed. The road committee was authorized to inspect rood south of railway
station, Port Hammond, and report at

Sou anent the construction of a tramway
across road at Port Haney was granted,
The cemetery amendment bylaw was
read a second and third time and passed.
Applications of Messrs. Beckett & Son,
snd John McLearn to secure sand from
the slide were granted. The following
orders were issued: Jno. Penberthy, $10
(surveying); John McKenney, $12 (road
work). The road committee of ward 2
submitted their report on road work. A
part of ths report tbe reeve ruled out of
order and refused to submit resolution to
council accepting it. Work to the amount
of $50 was done on road in slide merely
on the suggestion of a member of tbe
road committee and without authority
from the council. The reeve held that
ths council was not responsible for work
undertaken by individual members of
road committees without authority from
the council as a corporation, and that if
the report waa adopted it would establish a bad precedent whioh would lead to
confusion in the workings of the council.
After an animated discussion in which
Councillors Laity, Ferguson, Harris and
Dawson took part, the council adjourned.

White Bronze Mouhmints. -White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has como into large use, npidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
beeu found to be so well adapted for statuary and monuments, thst companies
have been for some time established ut
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
theso companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to bs equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antlaue bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are out from refined tine, snd are
given their sparkling appearance hy thc
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but does not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is inilistruetible by
the elements; It cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is so thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it Is affirmed,
ean take place.—Bonton Journal of Commerce, Chas, J. Robson, New Westminster, Is agent for the White Bronze

mfiJOto |j  w. K. III.*K|JJ. The Tornado at St. Cloud.
BY H. C. HOVEY.
Minnesota lias had niore gratuitous
advertising lately than was desirable;
and tho evil has been increased by the
habit of styling tornadoes by tho larger
name of cyclones. Thero are points
of resemblance, such as the fact that
both move vertically around un advancing center, the motion being from
right to left, or in a direction opposite
to that of the hands of a watch, and
both are violent agents of destruction
and objects of dread. But there is
alio a marked difference between the
phenomena. The truo cyclone starts
with a diameter of from 50 to 300
milea. Its usual birthplace is amid
the tropes, and ita fury is exhausted
before it reaches this more ncrthern
• realm. Moving over a large body of
water, it piles up mighty tidal waves
that finally inundate the land. The
tornado, on Die other hand, is purely
a local affair, originating in boiuu cob
. li'sion ot opposing storm currents, assuming a fun net-sh a pud form, its tail
now touching and thon rebounding
from the earth, and again sweeping
along over it liko a huge wet blanket,
but ita greatest diameter raroly exceeding 500 yards. Thus it proceeds in a
serpentine way for from a few rods to
25 or 30 miles, when it bursts in some
sort of local storm of rain or hail.
Should it strike the water, it then
becomes a water-spout, as wns demonstrated in the case of a tornado in
1883, that swept out of Wisconsin
upon Lake Michigan, causing a great
commotion there and lifting a column
of water some 300 feat high.
Several notable tornadoes have ravaged the Northwest during the last
ten years, among which may be mentioned those at Hnzel Green, Wis., tn
June, 1877; at Manknto, Minn., in
Juno, 1380; at Faribault, Minn., in
June, 1881; at New Olm, Minn., ut
GrinneU, Iowa, at Racine, Wis., in
1883; at Rochester, Minn., in the
same year; and ut several other localities. But it should be remembered
that there have likewise been many
storms and tornadoes in other parts of
the United States, as appears from tho
researches made by Lieut Finley,
whose unique book, bearing the title
of "Six Hundred Tornadoes" will give
the needed information, together with
the -supplementary observations made
by the same authority.
The universal opinion, however,
seems to be that none of the long list
exoeeda in ita destructive energy or
terrible manifestations the tornado of
St, Cloud and Sauk Rapids, Minn.,
that took place on April 14,1880, and
of which the writer had tho opportunity to make special observations, at
least ao far aa the effects were concerned. Being on the outskirts of the
storm, I only saw the massing of black
clouds, followed by a spitoful hail,
many of the atones measuring more
than inch ih diameter; but on a subsequent day I visited the locality, making inquiries of eye-witnesses, and
following the tornado's track myself
for several miles, aud noting ita varied
effects.
During the day a remarkably, high
temperature had prevailed for the
season, the mercury rising as high as
80 deg., and the air waB sultry and
oppressive. At 3 p. m. observers saw
dark banks of struggling clouds overhanging the ridge that in ancient times
used to be the river limit, and there
were apprehensions of impending danger. Suddenly the clouds began to
revolve, while sharp points shot downward, until a whirling funnel-shaped
mass was formed above a basin amid
the hills, that seems to have furnished
the cradle for the ensuing tornado.
Its first condition was undoubtedly
that of a simple whirlwind, having a
diameter of about 1,000 feet, which uprooted or twiited off nearly every treo
in its circle, overturned the monuments in the adjoining Masonic cemetery, and tore up the bowlders from
the ground. Thence it moved slowly
. and majestically along, at the rate of
about 12 or 15 miles an hour, but with
an inconceivably rapid rotary motion
upon its vertical axis, confining itself
for some distance to a path hardly
more than 150 feet wide. The pyrotechnic diaplay of flaming colors
againat a background of sooty black-
new waa very impressive and wonderful. Hundreds of people took timely
warning and got out of the road of the
moving column of cloud, whose general
tread wai toward the northeast. Having wrecked the Catholic church on
Calvary hill, and also several farmhouses, it entered a portion of the city
of * St. Cloud mainly occupied by foreigners, whose frame cottagos were
strewn over the plain indiscriminately,
leaving nothing but the cellars to mark
the site of the houses.
I noticed but one exception to this
general work of demolition, and thut
wu of a house that had been whirled
about end for end and loft on its foundation as a wreck. Reaching the freight
depot of the Manitoba R. R,, tho
wind tore that to pieces, overturned
the long linea of freight cars, carried
the trucks away, and even in places
wrenched the iron rails from thc ties.
In one instance the trucks were blown
from underneath a car, dropping tin-
latter on the track where it was left
By a merciful exemption, the hospital
of St. Benedict waa spared, although
the houses in ita vicinity wero taken
The tornado loft the city limits near
the residence of Lieut.-Gov. Gilman,
tearing away hia fences and killing liis
horses. The total loss of life in St.
Cloud waa 22 individuals, mostly wo
men and children, besides 40 or 50
more or less injured; and thu total
low of property was 987,395, of which
amount $50,000 fell to the share cf
the Manitoba R. R., while the re
mainder waa divided among 04 sutler
ers and their families, thus rendered
homeless. From theso figures it will
be seen (hat tho dwellings wore, nut of
. iin oipenaivo sort, nnd will readily he
rebuilt by the generosity of contrihu
tort.
The tornado struck the Mississippi
river at a point opposite the village of
Sauk Rapids, and -fishermen who were
in full view of the crossing aver that
for a few moments the bed of tho river
was swept dry, and ih corroboration of
this remarkable statement they showed
roe a wide marshy spofc-wherfc no water
had fawn before this event took place!
Two spans *et$ tutu away from tho
substantial wagon   bridgo below the
rapids, onespan being hurled up stream
and the. otttr down it by tho rotary
motion of the blast; and grent blocks
of granite being also torn bodily out
from the piera.   Th* Urge flour mill
twMthebridgbwas bNM.   Thfrdo-
pot of the Northern Paoifio IL R. was
demolished, and thd central portion of
the village itself wai then attacked
with the gwateit violence.   'Bejnrfthe
county teat, the court-house was located hen, a substantial atructure, of
which onlv the vault, six iron safes,
and the calaboose were left—tho latter
turned   uplfde   down.    A una new
•ohoolhouse, costing •W.OeO, was com-
pletely swept away. . The Bptacona
churoh wss so utterly wmovad that
the eol* relic thua far found In a bat
tered communion plato. The floor of
the large skating-rink is all that remains of lhat structure. Stores,
hotels, a brewery, and four-fifths of
tho residences in the village were scat
tared as rubbish along the hillsides, or
home away for miles through the air.
The caprice of (he storm was shown
here and there. The lower story of
one house was removed to parts unknown, while tho upper atory was left
on the foundation below. A lanre
barn containing twenty mules was demolished, but the mules escaped without a scratch. A woman was lifted
from her chair, carried over the wftlls
of her roofless dwelling, and deposited
iu a thicket of scrub oaks several rods
distant. A man told nie that, after
getting his family into the cellar, he
thought ho would watch the storm for
a moment; hut being caught by it, he
seized hold of tho roots of a treo, and
wns flopped up and down, as a carpet
Unit is being shaken, but escaped without serious injury. An iron safe was
carried by the wind completely across
tho stroet, and luft thero as u monument of terial energy:
Tho number of tho killed at Sauk
Rapids was 3!), and about 100 were
injured more or less. The fatal blows
seemed to be of two kinds, either contusion about tho head or stabbing by
thu lance-like splinters of boards
whirled through the air. Many had
their limbs broken by falling timbers and other heavy objects. Of
sufferers still living, several aro in a
critical condition and may not survive.
It is an instructive fact that, of those
who had the presence of mind to take
refuge in cellars, on hearing the roar
of the approaching tornado, only ono,
so far as I could learn, fell a victim lo
its fury—a boy who was crushed by
falling masonry itl a part of the cellar farthest from the storm. I examined nearly every cellar in the village
over which the storm had passed, and
found that the portion nearest its direction of approach was free from rubbish, and would no doubt have proved
to be a Bafo refuge.
An appraisement committee say that
the total number of houses destroyed
at Sauk Rapids, not including sheds
und barns, was 109, and the total valuo
of property destroyed was moro than
§290,000.
One of the saddest of the many
tragedies marking this wide disaster
took placo at a farmhouse in the country, about sixteen miles nortii of
Sauk Rapids, where a wedding party
of thirty were msembled. The ceremony was just concluded, and the
officiating clergyman was offcrim*-
prayer, when the building was struck
by the tornado. The bridegroom was
kilted outright, as were also fifteen
others- seven mon* victims have since
died, and only one of the company
oecaped severe injury of some kind.
Following the tornado's track through
the forest, I was interested in observing that the scrub oaks had in so
many instances resisted successfully
the onslaught that had leveled larger
aud nobler trees. Their branches wore
grotesquely laden with torn garments,
scraps of rooting, fragments of boards,
articles of furniture, and other objects.
This display was observable fur miles.
The depot sign "Sauk Rapids" wiib
carried to a locality nine miles distant. A plank 14 inches wide and 12
feet long was transported 18 miles.
A hunter 28 miles north of the villagp
told me that he saw a black cloud
approaching, from which he tuok
refuge. But it did no further harm
than to shower down bits uf boards,
lathing, torn books, etc. Ha picked
up a ledger which was identified as
belonging to the clerk of the county
court.
I had excellent opportunity of noting, in a large open field, the proofs
that the tornado traveled in a serpentine path, and with rapid rotation on
ita axis. Along the right hand of the
general track, the boards and other
fragments of houses, and the overturned trees, were all disposed so as
to point forward and inward toward
the line of march. Those along the
left-hand aide were invariably pointed
backward and away from that line.
Many large splinters were driven into
the ground so firmly that using all iny
strength, I could not pull them out
again.. A farmhouse standing near
the left-hand margin of the track had
its right aide intact, while on the left
or outward side the windows were all
broken in, and the walla and roof were
pierced by numerous splinters. Estimates have beeu mnde as to the rate
of the rotary motion that could drive
timbers deep into tho soil and that
could send a aplintered joist, like a
huge javelin, completely through the
roof a dwelling, but I know of no
satisfactory mode of calculation.
Putting together the testimony of
various observers stationed at different
points, the width of the tornado track
must have vatied frum ono hundred tu
one thousand feet; its entire duration
must have been rather lew thnn one
hour, lingering but a few moments in
anyone locality; and the entire distance traversed by it, from tho starting point southeast of St. Cloud tu the
point where it burst in a heavy rainfall, considerably northeast of Rice's
Station, was about thirty-five or forty
miles. Tho total loss of life thus far
reported from nll points was about
ninety individuals, and about twice
that number injured. The sum total
of property destroyed could not have
been loss than $400,000.

prayer meeting at the Blue Light Tabernacle. After tlie exerciaeB wero over
