The Two Routes.
The visit to this city of His Worship Mayor. Besugrand, of Montreal, ami the geutlomou of his pur
ty, which took place this week,.furnishes another illustration of the importance of giving all tourists an
opportunity of seeing tho royal city
and taking a look at tho lower
FraBer. We tyive contended that
the arrangements of the C. P. R.
should be such that persons making
the round trip' from the east could
have the option of going by the inlet route or the river route as they
might select—or, better, let them
come one way and return another.
In this way they would have nn
opportunity of seeing more of the
country and carrying away with
them a mate intelligent notion of
the province. Mayor Beaugrand
and the othe^entjeraen were njuch
pleased w_tKwB»t"_lil-y saW'ih'this
city, as well as with Victoria and
VancottTer,.J If they hail."gone
home by the same route by which
they catne, not only would iVe have
missed the opportunity of seeing
them, but they,' would have gone
away without seeing the chief city
of the mainland. Mr. Olds waa
good ghbugh to assure Mayor Dickinson yesterday morning that the
C. P. B. Oo. never intended to dis j
criminate against this city, and.
that the discriminating tariff bad
been an oversight which was corrtct-
ed as Soon as it became known. This
is quite satisfactory as ■fttr.ai^he;
freight is concerned, ami if arrangements are now made whereby* passengers may take whatever route
they pleaso without extra cost, the
people of tfiis'city will be without
any grievance against the eoinpany.
Rillwny Projects.
It has been suggested by some en
thusiastic supporter of the proposed
Cariboo Railway that a branch
should be extended also to the gold
fields'<3:''6'meriiii[l.' 'We Uro afraid
the project is impracticable. Everyone who has explored the upper
Fraser knows that, it passes through
a remarkably-rough country, entirely
unadapted to railway construction:
Mr. Marcus Smith, 0. E., whose
explorations in that region enable
him to**s"p*cak" with authority oii the
topography of- the country, -has
stated that any project* for a railway should avoid tbe river, as the
grades and other obstacles that
would lie encountered there are
very serious. He is of opinion that
the true,' outlet for Omonica is not by
way of the* raser nnd the 0. P.R.,
but by a line to the coast. If the
project of continuing the island
railway from Victoria to the northwestern extremity i of Vancouver
Island is ever carried out, it is possible that a road from Omenica to
the coast might-be made to connect
with this road by means of a ferry.
Much of tho region about Omenica,
however, as well as the northern
part of Vancouver Island, is still a
terra incognita, and until it has
been perfectly explored one cannot
discuss with intelligence the best
route for such a railway. From all
appearances we have entered upon
the railway era in this province, and
it is quite possible tliat railway construction may be quite overdone.
It is worth while, however, to consider well the needs of the country
und the prospects of future (level
npment, and to assist such railway
schemes as promise to bring to light
the resources of the province. Referring to the railway to the north
end of Vancouver Island, wo suggested that it ought to be subsidized
by the government became it would
be certain to develop the resources
of tbe island, and it would save the
cost of constructing expensive wagon
roads. Hie same remarks are en-
entirely applicable to the Cariboo
Railway, and to tho New Westminster Southern. Wherever railways can bo made to take the place
of wagon roads, and aro projected
in the .interest of the country, they
ought to be aided by grants of pro-
vincial lands or moneys. British
Columbia has readied a period in
her history when: she must strain
every nerve to provide employment
for those who are coining with the
intention to remain. We cannot
expect strangers to undertake the
development of .our valuable resources if we ourselves refuse aid jh that
direction; and unless these resources
are made accessible wo shall soon
discover, that people who have been
attracted, to our shores will drift
elsewhere' because they cannot Iind
profitable and permanent employment here.   ,
'["'   'li "
Mr. Mag-rood, Victoria Road, writes:
"Northrop, ,4 Lyman's Vegetable Dis.
cuvery and Dyspeptic Our. is a splendid
medicine. My customers say they never
used anything so effectual. Cloud results
immediately follow its uso. I know Its
vulue from personal nperhnce, having
keen troubled for,9 or it) years with
Dyspepsia, and sIuob using it digestion
goes on without thst depressed feeling so
well know to dyspeptics,' I havo no ho
sitation in recommending it In any case
of Indication, Constipation, Heartburn,
or troubles arising from a disordered
stomach.   -.

Those STBiweBEnits.—-Tho Colonist
stated: the other day that a lot of
choice strawberries grown in Capt.;
Irving's garden were on exhibition in
a Victoria window, and made this the
basis of a compliment to the climate.
It turns out tbat the strawberries had
been imported' from California! Our
climate, i is. without dodbt unrivalled
anywhere in Canada, and its reputation does not need to be sustained by
a resort to this sort ot subterfuge.

Stevens during his visit tp the city
aaid, in conversation . with.a reporter,
that tha" people of this oity should soon
consider a system of sewerage, because
it can be carried out so muoh 'easier
while the oity is small. He knew of
no city where a good system could be
more effectively carried out at leu
cost. Everything considered he looks
upon the _site and position of New
Westminster; as. admirable, and says
it is bound to grow every year.
" But," he added, " whether that is

only a very, brief uotice waa given. uf

Texawuna, Deo. 17.—Jas. Howard, aged 36, was taken from jail last
night by a masked mob, by whom he
was carried a short distance bolow
town and hanged toa railroad trestle.
Howard was. arrested on Wednesday
ou a warrant sworn out by his mother-
in-law, Mrs. Winchell, charging him
with maltreating his wife, who is
scarcely 14 years old. Howard and
wife were married last July. Mn.
Howard tells a story of atrocious brutality on the pait of her husband. She
aays he frequently tied her feet together* while she was in a state of nudity and, hanging her up by the feet,
beat her unmercifully and threatened
to kill her if she told anyone of hii
cruelties. On the lit of November
Howard took a common branding iron,
used to brand live stock, and heating
it red-hot branded a large letter " H"
on his wife's person in two places,
while she waa tied to a bed. After
suffering aeveral weeks from the effeots
of these burns Mrs. Howard told her
mother, with the result that Howard
was arrested. Deputy Sheriff Hargett
had anticipated that a mob would attack the jail and had employed extra
care to guard it, but the mob gained
entranoe while the guard were eating
their midnight meal.
.. London, Deo. 17.—Of the bullion
withdrawn from the bank of England

Dublin, Dec. Vf.—The Freeman's
Journal says it doea not believe any
movement in Ireland against back
rents would induce the English people
to consent to coercion. It appeals to
the people .of Ireland to falsify tho
malign prediction that arrests of tho
nationalists lenders would lead to outrage. It says the limit of forbearance
, had been passed, and the governmont
had no alternative but to arrest Dillon
aiid* his associates. Had they acted
otherwise they would have stultified
themselves before the world. Tho
News-Letter (Conservative) of Belfast,
referring to the arrests, says: "The
results would have been deplorable if.
the government had been weak enough
to allow the man who had been fined
to find sureties for hii good behavior
to set the law at defiance.'1 The
Morning News of Belfast says it hopes
the government will grant tiie arrested
gentlemen a. fair trial and leave it to
the country to decide between* Che
leaders of the reduced rent movement
and their intended victims.

PiiiLADKti'HiA, Dec. 17.— Tho Record this morning says: An important
conference bearing ou the relation of
tbo Catholic Church to the Knights of
Labor in the United States is believed
to have taken place here yesterday between Cardinal Gibbons, Archbishop
Corritmn of New York, and Archbishop
Ryan of Philadelphia, at the residence
of the latter. Prominent priests last
evening, in referring to the meeting,
said that tho labor question was certainly - assuming such proportions and
drifting into suoh channels that the
church could not long ignore. He referred to the interest taken iri the
labor movement ns exemplified by tho
heavy vote polled iu New York for
Henry George, and thought Catholics
should be advised by their spiritual
superiors whether or not it was dangerous to support' such movements.
Of course, ho said, no action will bo
taken by. the hierarchy without deliberation and care, and if any decision
is made it will only be for the best
interests of the church and the spiritual welfare of. its adherents.

uliilhrains, aud could get no relief until
about two years ago; ahe was then not

excruciating that she could not sleep at
night. Your agent was on his regular
trip, and she asked him If he could cure
her. He told her Dr. Thomas' Electric
OU was a sure cure. She tried it, and
judge'of her astonishment when in a few
