From Halifax.
Correspondence of the Colum bliui.
Halifax, N. S. Nov. S.—About
two weeks ago II. M. 8. Himalaya arrived from the Bermudas,
bringing about GOO artillery. She
left in about three or four days (or
England, taking with her those regiments of Royal artillery whose three
years here were ended. J. 3. Murphy, the actor, played a week's engagement here in Kerry Gou and
Shaun Bhue at' the academy of
music. Every night the building
was literally packed, and for two
hours he kept the audience in a constant roar of laughter over smart
sallies and Irish wit. -His suoeess
this time will undoubtedly insure
him packed houses upon his next
visit to Halifax. John S. Oiarke,
the boot black orator, followed close
on Murphy. He lectured two nights,
once on life in London, and once on
Hits and Misses, detailing incidents
happening during his life in London
and elsowneie. He was received as
well as a humorous personal lecturer
could be expected to be received
after such plays as Kerry Qou and
Shaun Rhue. For next week the
Jubilee Singers from Fisk University
are billed for two nights ut the Academy, The convocation of Dalhousie College was held in the Orphans Music Hall on the 18th ult.
The customary address was delivered by James Seth, M. A., professor
of metaphysics and ethics. His
subject was, "Philosophy, the science
of the sciences;" in the course of
which he paid an eloquent and
touching tribute to the memory of
the late Sir William Young. The
Grand Lodge of the Sons of Temperance was in sitting here last week.
Delegates were present from all
sectibns of the country. On Wed-
night last they held a concert at
which E. H. Olapp the most Worthy
Grand Patriarch, delivered a very
stirring address on the subject of
temperance. The Rev. Ml". Sa+age
and his band of singers, who have
been here for about a month, have
nearly finished their evangelistic
services, having made a round of all
the Methodist churches in the city.
The final service will be held in the
Orphans Music Hall some time next
week. We had a little rain last
week. It was not that sleepy, lazy,
easy-going rain of the west, but a
regular penetrating, business-like
rain coming right down on the slant,
as if its mission here was to wet one
through, and it had resolved to do
its duty to the utmost of its ability.
Tbe attraction for next week is a
lecture to be delivered by Robert
Motion, S, M., on Tuesday night at
the St. Patrick T. A. A B. Society.
His subject will be personal reminiscences. It attempted to snow yesterday, but for some reason it was
unsuccessful. Probably the next
attempt will succeed better. Tho
thermometer got down to the level
of the freezing point last night
Tbe Czar's Safety.
London-, Nov. 16.—The heads
of tho German police have a delicate
task to perforin in combination with
the Russian secret agents already in
Berlin, to secure the Ozar's personal
safety during his coming visit to the
German capital, without obtruding
themselves upon public attention
while performing their duties. It
is fortunate for them that the Ozar
has a more implicit belief in the
value of their services than many
well-informed people have. The
Russian naval officer now here says
that contrary to general opinion, the
so-called Nihilists in Russia are very
few in number, and are formidable
ly by   activity,   intelligence and
ifcgdiu Ol Uttugfn wlllcrrumitimwr-
ize their attempts. ' The good-
natured loyalty and sluggishness
which distinguish the common people deter the conspirators from recruiting their numbers from the
masses, and they nre almost exclusively men of education nnd mental
attainments who have not received
the advancement in their careers
which they consider due to their
merits, and who seek revenge for
the slighting manner in which their
protes'ts have been received. Deceiving the world, and possibly
themselves, by professing to be
actuated by the most exalted patriotism, remarkable women who
hnve been from time to time associated with their plots were ntllliatcd
with them in nearly all cases by ties
of affection or kindred. The police
must occasionally show their efficiency by inventing or discovering
now conspiracies in large cities, and
to this fact may be attributed re
cent arrests in St. Petersburg, Odessa and Kiel!'.

Sin Dieuo, Cal., Nov. 21.— Samuel
H. Rohn, a plumber, was shot and in*
stnntly killed Inst night by C. F. Gid-
ney, a constable. Tho latter was about
to arrest a drunken man, when Rohn,

BAKNS   HORNED.
Chico, Cal., Nov. 21.—Two large
barns were destroyed by fire, here yesterday. Five horses were burned to
death.   Loss, $10,000.
A BLUE   OCTLOOK FOR GERMANY.
New YorJ, Nov. 21.—The Tribune
this morning publishes a long letter
from a godson of the crown prince of
Germany, who hns been, since infancy,
on terms of intimacy with the family.
He says tho health of Prince William,
son of the crown prince, is very precarious, owing to the never ending succession of abceaaes in the ears between
the tympanum and back of his brain.
. The danger is even greater of meneng-
itis und infliuiiution of the brain, the
disease which killed the late King of
Prussia, after making him insane for
several years, ln addition it must be
borne in mind that, unlike his father,
Prince William's health is exceedingly
bad. His left arm is almost useless,
having been withered since his birth.
The writer continues: "In the event
of insanity or the death of Prince William, one of which appears inevitable
withma measurable time, the imperial
crown on the demise of old Kaiser and
the crown prince, devolves on William's little four-year-old son. A bitter struggle would then ensue for the
regency, in which the Berlin junker
and court party has determined the
Crown Princess Victoria shall have no
share. In the event of a long minority it is difficult to discover a member
of the imperial or royal family who
would be fit to take the regency if the
crown princess wore left entirely out
of consideration.
KAN INTO A CANAL.
Montreal, Nov. 21.—A freight
train on the south-eastern branch of
the Canadian Pacific railway ran into
an open draw bridge over Laohine
canal yesterday. The engineer and

THE RESULT OF CARELESSNESS.
Uohnekville, Cal., Nov. 21.—The
12-year-old son of Henry Paynes,

him. The gun was discharged, killing
him instantly.
RAN INTO BOCKS.
Wheblino, W.Vo., Nov. 21.—A
construction train on tho Cleveland
& Pittshurit mil way ran into a pile of
rocks which had fallen from a hillside
near Steubenville this meriting. The
engineer and firemen were killed and
several persons badly hurt.
A GREAT DIAMOND ROBBERY.
New Yokk, Nov. 21.—There was a
diamond robbery ou Saturday night at
the residence of Matthew Morgan, a
wealthy retired merchant living at 262
Lexington ave. Diamonds valued
from 810,000 to 812,000 were stolen

jewel box in the dressing room of the
different rooms of the family. Tho
loss was discovered this morning.

Qeurge Weufnll, fifty-five years nf ago,
who eamo here a month ago from Oregon City with two children, n girl nged

the Universal feeling that the fault of
the collision rests with the Roes

From Okanagan.
(Correspondence of tbe Columbian,)
Okanagan, Nor. 16.—Mining operations in Cherry Creek region have
about suspended for the season. I(r.
Molntyre hss just come out, also Mr.
J. Morrison's men. Both parties ex
sanguine of reward in the near future.
The Cherry Creek mining company er*
still driviug in their tunnel, and nope -
to strike it rich almost any day. Tne
Shamrock oompany, quartz, have gone -
into winter quarters.
The musical youug men of. Vernon
have formed a club, and are preparing
to give an entertainment about Christ-
mns. Dancing will be participated in
after the concert. Judging from the
talent it will be well worth attending.
The population of the surrounding -
country is ever on the increase, and
marriages, whioh formerly occurred occasionally, are now almost an everyday event, and to vary it a little, Vernon boasts of a real elopement.
Mr. O'Kebfe and wife returned from
Ontario accompanied by two young
lady friends. We trust this will not
be his last trip to Ontario.
Miss Christian 'lately returned from
Quobec, and brought a tody Mend
also.
There arc now 6ve brothers of Mr.
Joseph Christian in Okanagan. Some
one sugiiosted a pun.
Mr. W. N. Bole, M. P. P., passed
through recently, en route to Kere-
meos.
Mr. Robt. McDousal, of Vernon, ii
now interested with Schubert Bros, In

HenOar Evenlarf, Xev. 91,1887.
It seems to be generally admitted
that the New York state election
lately held has mode the nomination
of President Cleveland for a second
term certain. At the same time it
materially reduces Blaine's chancos,
and disposes of Henry Georgo altogether as a possible success. The
Oeorge vote showes a marked decrease since last year, and it ia also
remarkable that a much greater
proportion of it came from the Republican party. The prohibition
vote, on the contrary, is by far the
largest ever polled in the state. All
eyes have been looking to New York
for political pointers, and the very
decided Democratic victory points
surely to Cleveland as next president There are many contingencies
to be considered, however, and it
would be safest to reserve prophesies
until more of the now hidden future
has been disclosed.
A correspondent of the Toronto
Mail has been making a tour of the
Northwest for the purpose of ascertaining the condition and efficiency
of the mounted police service. For
some time serious doubts on this
subject; have been freely expressed
by persons professing to have accurate information. It has been stated
that vacancies in the force have lately been filled by persons anxious for
a soft situation, where salary and a
good time were more to be considered than valuable service, and that
the efficiency of the force had, consequently, degenerated. The Mail
correspondent finds some things
whioh do not altogether meet with
his approval, but he declares that
the presence of the mounted police
in the northwest exercises a most
wholesome effect upon the natives
and others. One of the most demoralising ageneies of the northwest,
as elsewhere, is the whiskey, which
finds its way, in spite of restrictions,
into the region where it is supposed
not to be found. This, the correspondent thinks, is no fault of the
police.
There seems to be no doubt now
that the trouble of the Oerman
crown prince is cancer, and that the
chances of his living many months
are extremely doubtful. The affaire
of Germany are, therefore, in a very
unsettled condition, and considerable
apprehension is felt in some quarters
for the future. The emperor is
wonderfully robust for a person of
his age; but he is very old, and in
the ordinary course of events he
cannot be expected long to survive
his son. In the event of the death
of the emperor and his son, the reins
of government would practically fall
into the liands of Bismarck, with
Prince William as regent. The
affairs of Europe have been for a
long time in such a critical condition that a very slight incident may
be followed by very serious results,
and the death of the emperor and
his heir is no insignificant - occurrence. It may be accepted as beyond dispute that the administration
of Bismarck will be in keeping with
his past record. He will rule the
nation with vigor, and will stand no
nonsense from any quarter. Both
Russia and France will need to be
uncommonly civil,
A few days ago the Victoria
Times, in referring to the unfortunate flood which recently overtook
the Norwegian settlers on Squamish
River, took occasion to throw the
responsibility of the misfortune on
the provincial government Some
other provincial papers, through ignorance of the circumstances, have
fallen into a similar error. In another column will be found a report
of an interview with Ool. McGregor,
who was employed by the government to locate these men, and also
with the interpreter of the colony,
A perusal of (hat report will satisfy
every person that neither the government nor the guide can be held
responsible for the misfortune.
Ool. McGregor states that he warned
the Norwegians of the danger of
floods in the Squamish valley, and
Mr. ■arison.rtnur. iauu|rms„ *'."
statement The Squamish valley is
a very delightful spot, and the Norwegians seem to have been bo
chanted with it and so impressed
with its suitableness for their purpose that they did not feel disposed
to go further, and were prepared to
take the obanees of a flood. The
result is eertainly unfortunate; but
it is gratifying to know that these
people are not discouraged by the
misfortune whioh hu overtaken
them, and that they do not consider
themselves badly treated. It has
been intimated that a large immigration from Norway may be looked for
if those representatives of that country how in this provinoe succeed in
finding a location and employment
suitable to their tastes. Ai a nil
the Norwegians are hardy and in
dustrious—just the sort of people to
develop successfully the deep sea
fisheries along the coast—and we
hop* matters will be speedily -arranged in suoh a way as to satisfy
their requirements The government bail certainly shown a disposition to d»l liberally with them,
and we have no doubt that it will
continue to exhibit the tame spirit
of liberality until a result hu been
reached satisfactory to all parties.
A Creaking Hinge
Is dry and turns hard, until oil ia applied,
alter whicli it moves easily. WJien tlio
joints,orliiuges, of tliu boilyorostlffimed
and inflamod by llhcumutism, they cannot be moved without causing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Saroaparilla,
by its action on the blood, relieves this
condition, and restores tlio joints to good
Vorfcing order.
Ayor's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which baffled tbo efforts of tho
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could give tho names of
many individuals who havo been cured
by taking this medicino. Jn my wise it
has worked wonders, relieving mc of
Rheumatism,
aftor being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayor's SarsapariUa,—K. II.
Lawrence, M. D., Baltimore, Jtfd.
Ayor's SarsapariUa cured me of Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It has eradicated every trace of
disease from my system. — B. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Belmont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted mo griovously, in spite of all the
remedies I could find, until I commenced
using Ayer's SarsapariUa. I took soveral Dottles of this preparation, and was
speedily restored to health.—J. Fream,

2>4Sanaefg. EXECUTION OP CRIM1N
Student In Part,.
-Dr. Fon.'nraln, the eminent physician
ami siiivron, has a forcible paper on
tho abovo subject in the Medical Record.
Thi (Trent principle is to do away as
far as possible with tho necessities In
favor ol all manner of luxuries. A
young Frenchman will like a miserable
room in the sixth story, with a brick
floor and no carpv't, anrl will go without
a lire even in the col lest days of winter,
whereas, by pjyiug twenty francs more
in the month, ho lniiiht have a large
comfortable room, well boated, anrl
two stories lower rlewn. He takes the
twenty Irenes th'iH sivn-1 and invests it
in a lottery ticket— trVt's a great business, by the way, in 'France. He will
go without breakfast to have money for
the theatre, he will dim on unwholesome food for a quarter, and proceed to
spend three or fori.' fr nr s in a cafe for
billiards and various drinkables for
himself and frirriiU. He will sometimes, I regret to Hay, prefer spending
two francs fifty cenil n»s for a bright
new cravat to paring In r necessary ten
sous which would entitle him to a bath.
the Infliction or tho ltoath Pen.
The particular point made Is concerning the manner iu wlli -li the death penalty shoulrl be inilirrt.r.I—in those cases
where the law has dirci'iwll it Hanging
he condemns as lurliar rw, and he denounces the manner in which executions
are carried on. He claims that the
large number of persons allowed to be
present tends to martyrize the unfortunate man. Even the pari allotted to
medical men on surli occasions of listening to the heartbeats after the drop
has occurred he can .not reconcile himself to. He then discuss.'S the various
methods which have from time to time
been suggested as a substitute for hanging.
Any proceeding which the subject
can physically oppos', nr ol which he
can ward oil l.io deadly effect for a
reasonable period of time, is unsuitable.
This sets aside sudocation by earlrouio-
acid gas, drowning nil 1 the use of deadly anesthetics, an I evvn more certainly
all forms of poison. Tire hypodermic
injection of porarn, whieh lately has
found many advocates, fails to meet the >
requirements that death must be caused
instantly—just.us rapidly to the strongest
as to the weakest individual.
There ts something1, sublime In the
tiicturo whieh liistorinu! have drawn
er us of the manner in which Socrates
cnlinly awaited the approach ol death
after having taken tire fatal hemlock.
Firm in the faith of hU convictions, his
last words were those of inspiration and
encouragement tn his fellows. His uninspired words form perhaps the nearest
approach to inspiration of any in profane writings. With the modern sufferer of the death penalty we should
not expect such aitecting surroundings,
snd his great desire would probably Be
to "die game."
Mr. Benjamin sensibly argues thtt
■■any proceeding which involves the
application of mo Ileal or surgical skill
to insure its efficiency must likewise be
ruled out. The medical faculty, presumably, will not a some the role of
executioners. A' physician may be
called upon, ss now, to distinguish apparent death." This will, of course, at
once decide against pitching thte medullar. Publio sentiment will declare
against any mutilating method, and
even shooting, which is, perhaps, the
most speedy method of all thus far alluded to, is open to many objections.
Having mentioned ull these methods to
decry against them, tlie writer brings
forward electricity as the method which
is the most speedy and humane, and
destined to eventually supersede all
others. Sensation, as a physiological
process, requires, he says, one-tenth of a
second. Any method, therefore, which
requires less than this time for its performance is absolutely painless. Tyn-
dall, in one of his experiments, accidentally received a very large charge of
electricity from somo apparatus, tnd
declared that there ensued in his system
an appreciable interval in whicL ill ths
powers of life seemed to bs held In
abeyance, tnd ln which be experienced
no pain. Ths electrodes might bs
placed one under the feet snd tbe other
at the base of the brain. The pressing
of a button would clots the circuit, or
tbe cloeurs might bs made by som*
clock-work apparatus, and thus the execution would take place without the
direct intervention of a human hand.
One argument advanced in ftvor of
electricity mty seem to sains a rather
curious one. It tt ths honor inborn in
man of instantaneous death. Ths litany, we are reminded, contains a distinct supplication that we may be delivered from 'sudden death." It is
argued that this inherent fear would
surround Urn death penalty with mors
of terror and abhorrence than now exists, tad thlt certain classes of evil-
doors would be mors powerfully deterred from crime tban they are under
the existing state of affairs. In the use
of electricity the fatal result would bt
positively assured. Judicial executions
are often slacking blunders. Ths experiments of D'Arsonval hsvs shown
that while, after t shock of under Bvs
hundred volte life can generally be resuscitated by artificial respiration, •
stronger electro-motive lores is tbto-
lutelyftttL
From some of the minor conclusions
of ths article under consideration we
might dissent. With ths msior ones
wo tre disposed to agree. Before sny
mothod of Inflicting the death penalty
may become thl ioetl one • vigorous
reformation in attendant circumstance,
li necessary. It it t judicial procedure
and should be surrounded with ths
law's stern majesty.

begins to make iier wedding trousseau
—no trifling nlliilr, as it is incumbent
upon her to provide not only her owa
wardrobe, hut all the household linen,
furniture, an t kitchen utensils. The
marriage is au occasion for groat re-
joiclngs, and oxtends ovor several days,
during which much tobacco is smoked
by tlie mules nnd much chatter indulged in by the females between the
hours of feasting. Stolid thou,'h they
be, all German husbands do not upp.i.ir
to bo great successes; yet the wives are
evidently sweet, forbearing creatures,
as the following verses from tbo German
will show:
•*Oh, f have a man a, seed as can be,
No woman contd wish for a liouor than ho;
Sometimes, indeed, bo might chance to do
wrong,
But bU lovo for me Is uncommonly ttrong1, *
"When soaked with rum ho Is hardly polite,
But knocks the crockery left anrl rlrrlit;
Anrl palls my hair, and growls again;
Bnt, excepting that, Ire's the best ol1 inon--'
If the foregoing represents tho average of German women, they are easily
satisfied. What a treasure sueli a wife
would prove, what an inestimable boon,
to a Lancashire miner, or to a Yorkshire cotton-spinner.
Wedding Blugs*
In connection with wedding rings
may be mentioned the following cun-
ous notice in one ol the marriage registers of an English church: "ls£>, Nov.
5, Christopher Newsara, Charity Mor-
roll: Charity Morrell being entirely
without arms, tho ring was placed upon
the fourth tee of the left foot, ami sin
wrote her name in this register witii
her right foot." The marriage of Duke
John (brother of Erik XIV., King of
Sweden), to the Princess Catheriiir
(sister of King Sigisinund II. of I'olan I)
in 151*2 gave great offence to Erik, who
subjected the royal pair to terrible sufferings. When tho duke was cast into
prison, his wife bad the choice of living
iu one of the king's palaces, or, if she
wished to accompany her husband, she
was only allowed two maids wirli her
in prison. When Catherine heard this
she exclaimed that "She would rather
die than be separated from the duke,"
and fainted away. When sho was restored, Goran, messenger of King Erik,
asked her what she hod determiner!.
Tho duchess draw her betrothal ring
from her finger, and said, "Head whnt.
stands there." Goran saw the wonts
engraved within it, Aamo nisi won
(None but death). "I will remain by
it," said Catherine, and she did so. At
tho marriage of Napoleon I. with the
Austrian Archduchess, upon reeeivin :
the benediction ring, he asked, "Why
did not the Empress Josephine givr
men ring 7" The reply was, "because,
sire, it is the custom in France that on-
ly the bridegroom gives the ring."
"Ahl" said Napoleon, "that is good,'
and whispered in M. Pradt's ear, "lint
do you know why the women receive
the ring ? It is a custom founded on
the Komau law, which ordained that alt
slaves should wear rings; and, as tlm
women are our slaves, they ought to
wear this badge of servitude.
An Attlst'e llnnce.
Everybody knows ol Edwin A. Abbey, the clever artist whose drawings
for Harper's of "She Stoops to Conquer," "Sally in Our Alloy," and ui
"Kitty of Coleraine," are so much admired. His frieds say that it is one of
Mr. Abbey's little eccentricities that
whenever some piece of work just finished particularly pleases him, lie gives
vent to his feelings in some utterly unconventional way. Not long ago a lady
culled on bim just while he wus finishing tbe best of the Kitty of Coleraine
pictures — "The Devil a Pitcher was
whole in Coleraine." Ho was just in
the working mood, so he begged her to
sit down for t few minutes until ho had
finished.
Sho sat down, and presently Abbey
forgot nil about her. He worked ami
worked, and Anally he completed tlie
picture, lie stepped back, took a goo I
look, then gave a long drawn whistle
of KiUisutetioii. The next moment tho
whistle brightened up into a nutiiiy
melody, and Abbey "did" a first elms
jig that wonld have done honor tu a
professional. The lady, surprised, hut
uot to bo outdone, eommencud to "p-il,1'
but that recullo I tho artist to hlms If.
He turned and sarv tlie lady Hus .e 1
slightly, and apologised. But the apo.-
ogywas't noeessiry, for lt isn't every
one who has thu honor of seeing onu of
America's leading artists doing a little
"pas seul."

pointed out by tlio Columbian, of
running bi-weekly trips between this

stated his intention, after this week,
of making two trips per week across
the gulf, touching at all intermediate
ports. This will bo good news to tho
merchants both in this city and Nanaimo, and the increased shipping facilities will be greatly appreciated by
them. The chanpo also shows Capt.
Rogers is fully alive to tho demands of
trade and able to cope with them.

house, Bradley, Gaiietson & Co., arrived in this city ou Saturday. Ho is
introducing a book on a most vital and
all absorbing question. Tho titlo is,
"Future Punishment, or does Death
end Probation V It is claimed that
this is the most able and scholarly discussion of the subject that has yet beon
written, and as evory Christian church
is represented in the disoussion, by onu
or more of its leading men, it ought to
have a universal circulation. Mr.
Jackson bears the highest of testimonials from leading men of the east,
and we can safely say that peoplo with

upon straightforward aud honorable
dealings on his part, as well as the

The farmers in the vicinity of Ladders, seem determined to keep up
with the progress of the country in
every way, and are rapidly (fathering
together tho finest stock to be found
in the province. Yesterday morning a
car containing 22 thoroughbred animals, arrived from Ontario, consigned
to a number of the moat enterprising
farmers in Ladners. Mr. J. Kirkland
iB the principal importer in this instance, he being the owner of one half
of tbe carload viz. 4 Durhams, 2 Here-
fords, 3 Oxforddown sheep and 2
Suffolk pigs. Two stallions came in
the car, one amagniBeient Clydesdale,
from tho stud of John Kols'on, Glasgow, Scotland, for Mr, H. Benson and
the other a splendidShiru horse, Canadian bred from imported stook, for Mr.
J. A, McNeill of Victoria. Mr. Benson
also imported 2 Berkshire hugs. The
remaining C, short horn Durhams, aro
imported by Messrs Ladner, Woodward and Benson. This makes the
Becond carload of thoroughhrod stock
to arrivo within six weeks.

for Asthma, with the best results, It
acts like a charm."
The Norwegian felony.
SJomo of tho provincial papers, having censured the government and Col.
McGregor, who actod as guide, on account of the misfortunes which has befallen the Norwegian settlers on Squamish river, a representative of tho
Columbian interviewed tho colonel
and tho Norwegian interpreter on Saturday afternoon, for the purpose of ascertaining the facta. Col. McGregor
was first called upon, and did not hesitate frankly to answer all questions
put to him.
Rep.—Did you choose the location,
ou the Squamish river, settled upon
by .tho Norwegians?
Col. McG.—1 did not, and it was
against my wishes they "settled there.
It was my wish that they should see as
much of tho country as possible beforo
deciding upon any particular location.
Rep.—Did tho Norwegians see any
other parts of the country except
Howe Sound and the Squamish river?
Col. McG.—No. As booh as they
reached the spot, afterwards located
on, they declared themselves perfectly
satisfied, and declined exploring further.
Rep.—Did you know the mer overflowed its banks, and if so did you tell
them so?
Col. McG.—I told them it was easy
to see that the river overflowed its
banks, but to what extont I did not
know. I also pointed out Van Brae-
mer's dyke to prove my assertion.
But, in spito of my advice, anduaainst
my wishes, the Norwegians decided to
tako chances, as the Bpot was suitable
and convenient to the 6shing grounds.
Rep.—Did the government have
anythiug to do with tho choice ot location ?
Col. McG. — Nothing whatever.
They gave the Norwegians carte blanche
to settle where it suited them best,
and they were settled on the Squamish
before the government knew a location
had been decided on.
Our reportor then visited the immigration shed, and found the Norwegians all comfortably housed und seemingly contented. Carlson, tho interpreter, said tho Squamish rivor had
been chosen by them against the wish*
esbf Col. MbGrfegoiVwho wanted to
take them to other places before fixing
ou a permanent residence. They had
taken Van Braemer's dyke into consideration, but, as it was farther down
the river than the spot decided on,
they thought it unlikely that a flood
would roach them. Carlson says the
members of tho colony do not attach
blame to anyone, and although thoy
have met with bad luok, they aro not
discouraged, bnt will choose another
locality, and mako a success of it next
time.
The Topographical Hurvey.
Mr. W. S. Drewry, D. L. S.. who
has had charge of the Topographical
survey at Harrison Lako during tho
past summer, is in the city. Mr.
Drewry stated that the survey for this
year is over, and he will proceed to
Ottawa in a few days to report on the
ed work in July, and, owing to the
smoke from forest fires, made slow
progress until the rainy season commenced in October. In Bpito of the
many drawbaoks met with, eight townships, or 286 square miles have beon
accurately mapped. The heights of
mountains, tho size of lakes and the
extent of the valleys hnve been ascertained, along with the nature of the
soil and rock met, with in each locality.
Tho altitude of the highest mountain
taken by Mr. Drewry is little ovor
4,000 feet, and many others nearly ap-
Eroach these figures. Sevoral lakes,
itherto unknown, wero discovered
high up in the mountains, ono in particular being 3,500 feet above the level
of the valley below. Somo of tho valleys are considerable in extent and
oontaiu excellent farming lands, which
will soon be opened up fur settlement
The lost fow weeks being rainy and
cold  mado the work extremely disa-
Keeable, and  the party enjoyed the
xury of sleeping in wet blankets for

never used anything so effectual. Good
rcsulta immediately follow its me. I
know ita value from personal experience,
having been troubled for fl or 10 years
witii Dyspepsia, and since using it digestion goes on without that depressed feeling so well known to dyspeptics, I have
no hesitation in recommoudins it in any
caso of Indigestion, Constipation, Heart-
btirn, or troubles arising from a disordered stomach."

Chung Quan, charged with stealing
a chicken, the property of W. J. Me-
Lood.
Tho evidence in this case went
strongly against tho prisoner, although
up till this morning he strongly deniod
having had anything to do with the
robbery. This morning when ho appeared before the magistrate ho acknowledge his guilt, and said the hen
was sitting on a stump when ho caught
it. That wm tho only hon ho had ever
stolon.
His Honor did not believe that a
Chinaman would stop operations nt
ono hon, and ho believed Chung know
much moro about the lato chicken
stealing than ho pretended to. As the
robbing of hen roosts had become so
common, and so mnny valuable fowls
had boen stolon, His Honor said he
was determined to put an end to it if
possible, and accordingly sentenced
the prisoner to six months in jail with
hard labor.
Ah Tye charged with receiving a
chicken, knowing it to have been stolen. As no evidence could be produced to prove the charge, the case was
dismissed.
Ah Ing was charged with the same
offence, and dismissed on the same
grounds.
