W. 0, T. II. convention.
Tuesday, Sopt. 6.—Devotional
exercises lod by Mrs. Spafford,
scripture reading, 51st chap, of
Isaiah, accompanied \>j appropriate
and earnest remarks, the Lord being present to bless. A reference in
tho minutes to a letter read from
the Hon. John Bohton, informing
the convention that the study of
physiology has toen introduced into
■tl»p«^Kho*fcr:-)lir-enMnee,
gave rise to a pleasant discussion
on the desirability of introducing
scientific temperance instruction
into the public > and high schools.
The committee on blank forms now
reported, having revised the form
somewhat, resulting in large improvement. Report adopted. In
yesterday's report it should have
been stated that it was resolved
that copies of tha paper* giving reports be sent to the Ontario Alliance secretary and Ontario president
of W. 0. T. U. An explanation of
the duties of the superintendent
of literature was given by Mrs.
Jenkins. The press superintendent
(Mrs. Sargison) reported. A short
discussion took place on the
press and the desirability
of securing it on the side
of the W. 0. T. U. A report from
the superintendent of work among
the sailors and lumbermen from
Mrs. Thnin, of Moody ville, was read.
It was suggested that railwaymen
and miners be taken into consider
ation relative to the diffusion of
suitable literature in connection
with sailors and lumbermen, A report on unfermented sacramental
wine, by Mrs. Wells, next appeared
and was adopted. "Heredity and
hygiene," by Mrs. Dr. Clark, of
Victoria, was called for in response
as the lady was not present,
Evangelistic work report by Mrs.
D. Robson, Was a*tso callerffor."A letter was read by the secretary from
Vancouver union to the superintendent of evangelistic work; also one
from Nanaimo, stating their efforts
in this line with success and non-
success. Also a report Iroas -tie
toria indicative of progress in this
important branch of the work. A
verbal report from Westminster by
Mrs, Peers gave evidence of a lively interest taken by many of the
ministers of the gospel Mrs. Spafford spoke very favorably of the
help given by her pastor in this
work. Also Mrs. French bore sim-
iliar testimony, A letter from
Chilliwhack on the subject was also
read, It was resolved that the
recording secretary frame a report
from the matter placed in her hands,
on evangelistic work. The president called for a report on prison
work—responded to by Mrs. Mc-
Cutoheon. Some very instructive
remarks were made by the president
on the success of prison reformation
in Westminster, through the
efforts of the W. O. T. U. and christian workers. Many of the prisoners take the pledge; after regaining
their4iberty, they are sorely tempted by their old companions in ruin
to return to their old-habits. They
are taught in prison to commit scripture and select the hymns for singing. Very happy experiences
given by Mrs. Frenoh and Mrs.
Spafford on this prison work next
followed. At this point Mrs. Sar*
gison moved that the convention
arise and sing "Praise God from
whom all blessings How," whioh was
done. A report, very full and interesting, ou hospital work was read
by the recording seo., giving very
encouraging information relative to
labor iu this department. A suggestion was made in this report relative to tho desirability of the W.
O. T. TT. providing for a bed or beds
for women in the now jubilee hospital. A very touching incident
given by Mrs. Spafford to the point
would almost make it appear imperative that this suggestion be
acted upon. Convention adjourned
for luncheon. Afternoon session
d with devotional exercises
conducted by Mrs. Geo. Chadsey.
A report of the work among tlie
Indians was read by Mrs. Tait, and
adopted. The mainland oi-ganizgr,
Miss. Bowes, reported two new
unions; ono in Hope and one in
Oheam. The islnnd organizer's report shows no new unions—the
field being already thoroughly canvassed by Mrs. Youmaus and Miss
Howes. A report of the organisation of two Loyal Legions, however,
was given. Reports of all the
local unions were read and approved.
Great energy was maintained among
the oIKciirs thoroughout, notwithstanding tho smellness of results, in
many cases. The president's address followed-—so much appreciated that a motion to the effect that
it ho printed in sheet form and dis
tributetl among the Dominion
unions  was  unanimously  carried.
During the afternoon the worthy
Cor. Sec. (Miss McBougall) arrived
and was heartily welcomed by the
convention rising anil waving the
Chiitiiuqiirr salute. In the evening
Miss Bowes delivered a lecture on
"The Jnggernant of Christendom,"
which was listened to with profound attention, and followed liy a
tangible appreciation.

C.P.E.  SUBSIDY HEANTED.
Mokibeal, Sept. 9.—A cable from
London ssys that tho British government has granted a subsidy of £45,
000 sterling per annum to the Canadian Pacific railway company's steamers.
SERIOUS RIOIIKO IK IBELANll.
Dublin, Sept. II.—During the
O'Brien indignation meeting at Mit-
chellstown to-day, a collision occurred
between the police and the citizens, in
which one man was kiled and over 200
were wounded, Messrs. Labouchere,
Dillon, Brunner, Ellis and Condon
were present to address the meeting.
Before the speaking had begun a squad
of 20 policemen vainly tried to break
up the meeting. Thoy attacked the
people with their batons, and a free
tight ensued in which the police were
worsted. They then retired to their
barracks for assistance. On their departure Mr. Dillon began his speech,
but he hsd not proceeded far when the
police strongly re-inforced, returned
to the charge, using the butts of their
rifles. The onslaught was fierce, but
it wss fiercely met, the mounted farmers present riding into the fray and
joining in the fight. After a time the
police were again driven back to their
barracks, into which they retreated.
Then from windows and doors came a
volley directed at a group who were
watching tlu fighting from the bottom
of the sqBto. John Reardon was
shot dead, aflktwo others were wounded by the voUh. One of these, John
Shinnock, died' soon afterward. In
all fifty-four police and one hundred
and fifty oivilians sirae, wounded. It
is not known who ordered the men to
fire. Immediately after the firms;
Messrs. Labouchere and Dillon rushed
into the barracks and asked that the
men', rifles be examined, in order to
determine who had fired. Thi. was
refused. The people dipped their
handkerchiefs in Ihe blood of the victims. Part of Shinnock's skull still
lies in the market place where he fell.
THIS MOKMXfl'S DESPATCHED
AKOTHF.ll SMASH   UP.
Hastinos, Neb. Sept. 10.—Early
this morning a frightful smash up oo-
cured here, by the collision of a St.
Joe and Grand Island train with a
Burlington and Missouri freight at the
crossing of two roads. The freight
engine was thrown into a ditch and
burying E. S. Fuller the engineer who
wus taken out alive, but so badly injured he will probably die. Tho passenger train tumbled over an embankment with the cars piled up in a heap.
John Mendenburg, aged 70 one of
the psssengors, was mortally cut and
wounded, and many other passengers
were badly bruised.
ANOTHER HAN OOSE ASTRAY.
Santa Fa, Sept. 10.—A rumor is in
circulation this morning that the ox-
warden of the penitentiary, T. H.
Gable, has been found short in his accounts to the extent of 910,000.
OBEAT DAMAGE AJXIXII THE NILE.
London, Sept. 10.—Despatches from
Egypt to-day regarding Ihe rise of the
Nile is causing increased alarm. Many
estates on tlio right bank of the river
are ruined. The doura crop in many
places, being now nearly ripe, is irretrievably destroyed, thus n famine is
imminent. At Boulnk the high wall,
il feet thick, constructed between the
railroad and river, whicli wns supposed
to lie equal to any oniergeifoy, has
givon way. The village, around Luxor
aro destroyed. Luxor itself is seriously
dantugud. Telegraphiccomniuiiicatiuii
with upper Egypt is interrupted.
THE CBOWN JEWELS RALK.

known Demncrat here is ill receipt of a
letter fiom Presiileut Cleveland in
which the latter declares that if he
runt fur a second icrm ihe ticket must
lie iiiadu up to suit him.
l'mvliKRLY WILL RESION.
I'lTrsui'iw, Pa, Sept. 10.— U. H.
Betigriugh, a close personal friend of
Gold. Master Workman Powderly, to*
day received information which leaves
no doubt in his mind' that Powderly
will tender his resignation at the Min*
lieapolis convention and that ho will
insist on its acceptance. " Powderly will not resiiin beonuio he
fesrs defeat for himself or his policy,"
said Bengough, "but because he fears
the cause he represents will suffer
through attacks on him dictated by
outside interests."
THE CANADIAN COAST DEFENCES.
Ottawa, Out., Sept. 10.-General
Lord Alexander Russell, oomtusnding
Britith troops in Canada, will arrive
here to-morrow to consult with the Dominion government regarding'the pro*
porred changes in strengthening the
coast defenses of the colony. There
aro many conjectures as tn the motif il
which hns prompted tho Imperil)
government to this hurried line of
action. To the casual observer there
appears no immediate danger.yet then
muBt be something underlying al',
which has prompted the British government to take the extra precautionary
measures proposed.
JUMPED THE TRACK.
Suisun, Cal., Sept. 10.—A special
train containing native sons and daughters, returning from the N.pa celebration this morning, ran off the track
near the depot at 8 o'clock. No one
hurt except tho fireman, K, lake, who
sprained bis ankle luinptag how, tb.	
engine. Chas. Orr, the engineer,
stayed at his post, reverting the engine
and saving life and accident. Tbe
main track Ib torn up for two hundred
feet.
THE ARMV REORGANIZATION.
London, Sept. 10.—The army reorganisation scheme, announced last
night, is a revolution, as it prscticslly
makes Wolseley secretary ofstatefor wt r
without parliamentary responsibility,
and leaves the present secretary with
financial control of the whole war
office, divided into civil and war de*
partmenls. The latter has entire control of army organisation, while the
former simply cheeks the account system. This no doubt means incressed
efficiency for the army, but the principle of individual respontibiliy, if
strictly enforced, will almost certainly
lead to friction between the military
and oivil department. Tbe army will ,
be in the hands of the great heads of
departments, against whom the seoretary for war and the finanoial seoretary will have to struggle for eoonomy.

U. S. army, none but pott commander
will salute. ' Pott colors will be
dipped at parade will be reviewed by
President Cleveland, and General
Sheridan will be in command of the

not grand army men, that the name of
President Cleveland should have been
inserted in that paragraph of order,
and that there was a direct slight to
the chief magistrate in not doing so.
G. A. R. men, however, tre all of
opinion that the omission was an oversight and that no slight wu intended.

Saturday Evening, Sept. IO, last.
Now, wo suppose the Colonist
and the peoplo of Victoria will be
perfectly happy, for it has been definitely promised again that tho China
steamers aro to call at Esquimalt on
tho inward trip! Mr. Everett Frazer. who wns at Victoria the other
day, Baid the matter had received
much consideration, and it had been
determined thut the steamers shall
call horeaftw. Tho greatest difficulty in tho wuy of bringing about
this arrangement was the question
of insurance. Underwriters declared that if tlie stoainors stopped
at Victoria thero would be au addition made to the insurance whicli,
in some cases, would amount to an
extra charge of about §2,000. Lately, however, insurance men had surrendered that point and agreed to
permit the stenmors to call at Esquimalt ''without extra risk, nnd this
will bo done. On the inward trip
such passengers and mails as are
destined for Victoria or sound ports
will be put oil' at Esquimalt, and,
also, special freight, lt is believed
the detention will bo only a few
hours. While the now arrangement
satisfies the requirements of Victoria, tho statements made by Mr.
Frazer show thut the Colonist wus
entirely unjustified when it charged
Mr. VanHorne with falsehood in
connection with this affair. Mr.
Frazer fully corroborates the statement of Mr. VanHorne as to the
extra demand made by insuranco
men.
Mr. J. F. Kerns, of Buffalo, N.Y.,
has invented a device which, it is
claimed, will bring into practical uso
tho immense force of Niagara rapids
which is now wasted. For a great
many years a great many people
have been trying lo do what Kerns
is said to have done, and if the invention is a practical success, doubtless the inventor has struck a veritable bonanza. It is said that lie
has already been ofl'ercd 862,500
for the use of his invention in Erie
and Niagara counties. Tho working model of this contrivance is
doscribed as a platform nbout 18
inches wide and three feet long. It
has three upright bearings set so
that by stretching an endless chain
about them an irregular triangle is
formed. This chain is furnished
with flat puddles that stand out
from it to catch the current, which
is by means of dams or walls thrown
against its longest side. Hinges
permit the paddles to feather back
against the chain on the return side.
One of the wheels mound which
the chain runs is furnished with a
pulley, which gives off the power to
a belt that goes ashore. The inventor says it is proposed to make
a machine 100 feet long with steel
blade310 foet high. This will cost
about $12,000. It is bulieved that
one of these machines will generate
electricity enough to furnish light
and heat for the whole city of Buffalo, Of course the same principle
will apply wherever there is large
water power, and the possibilities of
the invention are very great indeed.
In our issue of yesterday it wus
announced that a new steam vessel
had just made the most remarkable
record for speed ever accomplished,
namely 321- miles in an hour. This
is an achievement little short of u
revolution, and leads one to wonder
where the limit to marine speed may
be safely fixed. Fancy a steamer
covering the distance between this
city and Victoria in two hours and
a quarter, allowing for the loss of
time starting and stopping! We
hope the 0. P. N. Co. will without
delay order a few steamers of the
kind that will do this. It is really
too bad that a company which receives so large a subsidy out of the
public treasury should be permitted
to go on setting at naught the rights
and conveniences of the public. On
Wednesday it wus 7:30 when the
Rithet uri-H-cd—-twelve and a half
hours to make 70 miles! Last
night she did not arrivo till after 0
o'clock, having been detained at
Victoria until after noon. If these
were occasional eccentricities in a
service generally well performed,
we should have nothing to say. The
' public will always excuse un occasional failure where there is aggregate efficiency and a manifest wish
to satisfy. But wo do not rcmeni
ber a single instance during the
whole season when the Rithet has
reached this city with the mails
before 4 o'clock in the nfterndon,
and she has very rately arrived
muoh beforo C. Wu have on sev
eral occasions pointed out how this
wretched service is destroying the
popularity of the Fraser River
route and forcing passenger traffic
into unnatural, inconvenient and
expensive channels. Notwithstanding the protests of tho board of
trade and the district representative, and the fact that these things
are fully known to tho postmaBter-
general und at least three other
members of the federal cabinet, the
people of Westminster have been
forced lo endure this treatment for
nwt-ly u whole summer, and there
ii no present indication of improve.

A Kllghtlnfc Disease—A
that is Hereditary*
Sin
It is woll known that among tho
many baleful oftbets ot tlio liquor
enruo, tlinao inflicted by criminally
careless ot thoroughly brutalised parents upon their helpless nml uufortu-
nato offspring are by no means least
in importance, though porlmps often
mentioned last iu order. Wo give bo-
low somo startling examples of this
much-lost-Bight-of phase of the subject, from the investigations of Dr. T.
D. Crothors, superintendout of Walnut Lodge, Hartford, Conn , and published in the Medical and Surgical
Reporter of Philadelphia. Ho quotes
Dr. Rush as relating that tho minors
of Westphalia, who live away from
thoir wives, are generally intoxicated
whon thoy come home on visits. The
rosult ia that a largo proportion of the
children born of theso families are
idiots and feeble-minded.
In' a number of caBos which ho cites
Dr. Crothors has directly traced inebriety buck to tho parents at a timo
prior to the child's birth. In one instance tho father was a sea captain, a
healthy, robust man, who never drank
except ou shore, and then in great
moderation. His ship went to China
and the South Seas, nnd was away
twelve or fourteen months at a timo.
He married in middle life, and, on
returning from a long voyage would go
to his country houso and bo intoxicated
with his wife for a weoKor moro on
wines—then recovor and start away
again. His wife would drink with
him and bo partially intoxicated. Several children were born, all of whom
died iu infancy except one, a boy. who
grew up and became a periodic drinker, and came under Dr. Crothers' care.
Ho was a nervous, melancholy young
man, who could not follow any steady
work long, and ovory two or three
months he would rush away to join
the most dissolute companions, with
whom he would remain in a room aud
for days drink to a condition of continuous Btupor. Finally ho would become exhausted and bo attacked with
gastritis. His mind was unstable at
all times, and he was credulous of all
things outside of his business. If he
becamo angry and excited he would
stagger and talk like a drunken man,
his face would grow red, the pupils of
the eyes dilate, and the lids swell, aud
he would be more or less stupid for a
long timo.
In another case iho physician cites
that the father as a turn pern tn* man.
The mother had drank huur at meula
all ber life. After their wedding, however, both were intoxicated and remained in that condition for a considerable period at that time. Tlio
first child whs a little, fretful creature,
which cried night aud day for the first
year. By accident whiskey was found
to produce the most perfect relief.
From this time nothing but some form
of spirits wonld alhty tlie nervous irritation, and as he grew older he would
cry fer it and refused to bu autiglit.il
with any other fluid. At ten Iih drunk
beer regularly every night, aud at
fifteen lie drank to groat excess. Iu
appearance he waa feeble and imperfectly developed. His mind was uncertain aud changeable. The tasto
and effects of spirits gavo him, he said,
the greatest pleasure. When he could
not get spirits he whs delirious, and'
after using two or three glasses he bo-
came stupid and laughed at everything
until he fell asleep. He waa placed iu
the care of a physician, who tried to
withdraw the uso of spirits by reducing
it from day to day. After the spirits
were withdrawn lie developed mania
and delusions of persecution, during
which ho escaped from control and
drank tit stupor. The mania diaup-
peared. Again thu etfort to break off
tho use uf spirits \vfla tried, but tlie
mania returned more violent than
ever, and the spirits were resumed and
continued up to death, at 20 years of
age.
X man was placed in Ids cure who
bad occupied a very rcpousible position of trust, nnd who with au iin.auo
indifference had drark to gnat excess
mid forfeited all honor and reapoct.
He was educated, and was a man of
talent and groat energy. Ho wns
temperate up to 40 years of nge, when
suddenly ho drank to intoxication, and
he was seen on the atrcets shunting iu
a delirious way. In two or three days
ho becnine temperate, and seemed to
havo no regrets or sorrows for the voir,
He manifested no interest iu the advice and couusrl nf bis friends, and
made no remarks of explanation lior
gave any reason for his conduct. 8tv-
oral mouths later he drunk iib before,
and returned to his work with the
same cool indiffurenoe us to lin conduct
and its consequences. Ho was fmeed
to resign his position na officer of a
bank, aud gradually went down lower
and lower, until brought to Dr. Crothers. He drank periodically, l be freo
interval being from threo to eighteen
months. The drink paroxysm f;wiiti'(
from three to six days. During thin
paroxysm ho waa umuiaoiil and reeled
up and down the street, or was seen in
an open oarriage, always going where
ho was most pro mine tit and making
public speeches. Ue recovered aud
wont to the fur west to.live on a entile
ranch. Investigations of this man's
history rovealed tho fact that his hither, who was a temperate, healthy
planter, married for the tlrst time at
40. Soon after he drank to great excess, and was after thia u periodical
drinker until bis death ton year* later.
Tbe father was delirium* during these
pnroxyami end spent his timo on the
Btreet and in prominent places preaching and lecturing in a maudlin way.

N.l'flel 'L',;'t...
Nothing ailila more to tlio com'j.r'.i riml
nttructions of ft town than street tr-ocrr.
Tlieir virluff in almost univerarilly con-
cir.lir.l, y.rt it is only within a low years
that ii!'.rriirii;lir(l oltijits liave been made to
plant trees, iiinl improve tho general ill)-
jnnirane.r of towns. In many of the most
progrossiv.r towns aro villago improvement s:t.pi< ties that are doing great good
nrrf oniy In planting trees and in improving tjio'ift rmrriiulings of the homes, but
are exerting by their work an educating
jxrwer that is of groat value. The work
of improvement in town ways and private
grounds is contagious. Many are realty
to improvo their places il attention ib
called to th.r need of it, and if they can
see an.easy way of bringing it about. A
fine row nf tr-e.s in front of neighbor's
grounds is very likely to stir up tlioso in
the ,'ieinity without trees to plant, and a
town with streets lined with fino shade
trees exerts an ilifiuenco ou surrounding
towns in tho direction of tree planting.
Tho rock orsugar maplo is ono of tho
most popular trees at the present timo
for street planting; it is, like all maples,
free from insect eneuiios, and does not
draw the vitality from the soil for a great
distance about it, as docs tho elm; tho
limbs aro inclined upward away from
carriages, and tho autumn colorings are
verv gorgeous.
Tne American elm is the ideal street
tree in growth and habit, for it will grow
rapidly in any good soil, pushes its
branches abovo all surroundings, nnd
forms a perfect arch over a street, aud
allows sutlicient sunlight to pass through
to keep the streets free from gloom und
dampness. II it was not for the exhaust,
ing power of the roots on all soil within a
long distance, and the ravageb ol tho canker worm on the foliuge, it would bo tbo
perfect street tree.
We have many other trees as valuable
as the rock maple that should be planted
along our streets.
It is a mistake to plant only one variety, for it is quite possible that some disease or insect may attack it and destroy
or seriously injure nil the trees in a town-
Bhip. I'Vequently, in late years, the rock
maple has been attacked by a fliseaso
similar'to the prrar blight; a limb cov
ered with foliage will wither and die and
it is not rare, to see a whole tree go in
this way. If this trouble should become
universal, through Homo 'favoring causes,
imagine the havoc that would be mado in
many towns; but if there was a largo
variety in tlie slindo trees the destruction would bo conlhied to the varieties
affected.
The Norway, scarlet and silver-leaf
maple nro valuable) for streot planting.
Tho Norway is ono of tlie few liuropean
trees that soetn to be long lived in our
climate; it has a rounder head and darker
foliage than the rock maple.
The American linden, although somewhat coarser than the European species,
is not injured by borers, unit it is a rapid
grow'ngaiid symmetrica!tree.     •
Tne white Ash is another very rapid
growing tree for street planting in all
soils; tlie outline of the tree at maturity
is broadly oval "or round. It makes a
largo tree and colors in a very striking
and peculiar manner iu tho autumn.
The leaves on the inside of the tree are
a bright yellow and those on the outside
deep purple or reddish brown.

Sinn's Height.
Men ol tho present day have no occasion to feel humiliated because they aro
not taller aud larger than they arc. There
is no reason, in the discoveries of science,
for the supposition that men, as a whole,
havo over had a greater average height
than thov havo now. For a long time, at
I.oueus,'in J"r»ace, near the junction of
tho Isere and Khono rivers, there existed
a deposit ol glgutic bones which bad
long been known ns tho "(limit's Mold."
In recent times lio$ie$ havo fcaeji exhumed there which'were believed to be
human, and which were said to be those
of Teutobodus, the king of tho Teutons,
who was overcomo near the spot by Mar-
ius, the lioman general The researches
of Cuvier, however, proved that these
bones, together with all the others exhumed in the same place, were those ol
the dinolhcrium giganleam, an extinct animal of the tapir species, which measured
about twenty feet in length.
The myth of a race of giants hns its
counterpart in those other creatures ol
the imagination, the pigmies. Theso
fabled people, who were so small that a
stalk of grain was a tree to tiuuii, which
they chopped down with tiny hatchets
and brush-hooks, were said to inhabit
Ethiopia. Thoy were always at war with
tbe cranes, but lived on such excellent
terms with the partridges that they were
able to harness them into their carriages.
They lived at first, according to the
Inble, in Thrace, but were driven out of
J'uropo by the cranes, and took rofuge in
Ethiopia. It is now commonly supposed
that the pigmies were nothing more nor
iess than monkeys of small size, like tho
marmoset. The pigmy's warfare with
tbe crane was prooably the ono grain o!
exact truth which survived in the tradition.
- The stories of the pigmies belong with
the fables ol tho Orlont. Tho men of ancient times were of the same, or nearly
tho same, heigjit of those of tho present
day. The doors dftlie ancient houses, the
ancient armor, the Egyptian mummies,
as well as the bones of fossil men, prove
that thore has been little or no variation.
The normal stature of men and women
ranges between four feet and six feet and
four inches. Those who exceed the latter height may bo cajlcd giants, while
those who are below four feot aro called
dwarfs. Thero havo been dwarfs scarcely one foot six inches in height, but even
these have been considerably taller than
the fabled pigmies of antiquity.

the fall run of salmon, but he Is doubtful if a sufficient number of fishermen
and laborers can be secured. The
Richmond cannery have shipped their
entire pack with tho exception of about

prevent u large addition being mado to

That Tiro of VVab.—Enquiry as to
the tug of war, Westminster vs. Vancouver, which a Vancouver paper
states will take place next Saturday at
Hastings, has failed to find a person in
thii city who knows anything about it. <
It appears that after the Caledonia
games there was Home talk of such a
contest taking place, but the matter
did not go any further and was not
thought of again. If Vancouver athletes wish to pit their pulling powers
against their Westminster brethern
there is no doubt but thst the contest
can he speedily arranged.

An Ofivm Smoker.—Early this
morning a Chinaman, almost dead from

have heen seen lying on the sidewalk
on Columbia street, opposite a drug
store. The moment the shop Was
opened the poor creature dragged him*
aelf inside, but from weakness or some
other cause could not make himself intelligible, but it was apparent he was
after the servioes of a doctor. At the
end of half an hour's rest he seemed tu
gather a little strength and managed
to make his way, though with much
difficulty, towards the Chinese quarter.

Safer Navigation.—Tho government steamer Sir James Douglas,
Capt. Deveroux commanding, arrived
in port from the mouth of the river
this afternoon. Since work was commenced, some time ago, all tlie buoys
in the north channel have been taken
up and painted and replaced with now
moorings. The fog bell lias been
shifted from its old position and is
now hung beneath the light houso. Immediately on arriving in port, Capt.
Deveroux, accompanied by Capt. Grant,
left on the str. Sampson for the North
Arm, to lay somo new buoys. Tho
Sir James Douglas will remain until
Monday noon.
VrouEtt Okkek Bbhiiie.—A few
days ago we stated that complaints bad
beon received from Upper Somas because no effort bad beon mado to replace the bridge over Vedder's Creek.
We have since received a letter from
Mr. Heury Barker calling attention
to the same matter. Mr. Barker says
that unless the bridge is replaced it
will bo almost impossible for any person in that settlement to reach tho
agricultural exhibition, and he thinks
the government is very remiss in its
duty because this important work on a
trunk road has so long boon neglected.
We hopo the government will give this
matter prompt'attention.

Mr. Kennedy's Li-.tteu.—A letter
from Mr. James Kennedy appears in
the Vancouver News ot this morning
relating to the question of city surreys.
Mr. Kennedy's excuse fur sending the
letter to a Vancouver paper is that
" the Columbian has manifested suoh
a decided opposition " to him. This
opposition consists in a paragraph
which we published a few days ago
stating that we " were quite sure thru.
Mr. Kennedy was entirely in error
with respect to the double charge for
the same work." This observation wo
made after learning what we bolieve
are the facta. Dues Mr. Kennedy sup-
poWgthat it ia tho business of a newspaper to publish whatever communication any individual chooses to send it,
and to let it pass without notice whim
the editor is satisfied it contains an untruth! If he does, ho must) hnve i.
good deal to learn with respect to tliu
duties and responsibilities of journalism. Wo have no doubt at all that the
charge brought against Messrs. Wood.,
Turner & Gamble with respect to Iho
double charge for the saino work is entirely untrue, und if Mr. Kennedy is
aa anxious as ho professes to be to ascertain tho facts and promote tbo public interests one of bis first steps should
bo to seek information without prejudice and apologize for misrepreeeiiting
what he does not seem to understand.
Home from CbllllwkMk.
Tho str. Win. Irving on her trip
down yesterday brought the members
of the W. C. T. U. convention which
liriir lately boon in session at Chilliwhack, The Indies al'. speak very
highly of tho manner in whioh they
wero received and welcomed everywhere among the peoplo of Chilliwhack,
whose hospitality they fully appreciate.
The trip both up and down waa at-
tended hy lino weather, and the convention returns highly delighted, the
only regret being that it was ail too
short.

This morniug Mr. W. H. Keary
drove Monsigneurs Taoho and f ubre
around the. city and pointed out to
thorn the principal places of interest
nud beauty. A visit was made to tlie
Royal City planing mills, where Mr.
Hendry conducted the visitors through
tlio various departments. The raver-
end gentlemen were greatly astonished
at the size of somo of the logs, they
being vory much larger than anything
to bo seen in eastern Canada. After
leaving the mill a visit was paid to D.
W. Port & Co.'s salmon freezing and
packing establishment. Mr. Fort
showed thoir Graces round tho building and explained the freezing process
to them, in whioh they manifested
great interest. The party then returned to the palace, highly delighted
with their drive nnd all they had
seen.
Thoir Gracos left this afternoon at
4:30 for Vancouvor, where thoy will
remain until to-morrow, and then proceed to Victoria, from which place
they will leave for homo on Tuesday.

A Qenulno Treat.
Tho goneral prediction, that the
Skating Rink would ho packed lust
night to hear tho Wizard Oil Concert
Company was fulfilled to.the letter,
und a larger or moro appreciative audience could not have boon accommodated with coiUfoiff.''■' The programmo
was very select and woll chosen, most
of tho songs nnd recitations being
entirely new to Westminster playgoers. Mrs. Christie sang very nicely,
and each song was roceived with much
applause by tho audience It would
bo hard to say which was Harry Christie's best effort, every song being sung
so admirably. It wilt be a long time
boforo Westminster hears such a vuice
again. Sidney Burt is a host in himself, and iu his own particular style is
inimitable. His overy appearance was
the signal for u general roar of laughter [rom the audience, and every word
uttered was so very funny that at
times it was difficult to keep the run
of the liioce. "Farmer Magee" and
"Aunt Betsy" fairly kept the audience
in tits from beginning to ond. Jule
S. Strait in his comic and Irish songs
was a treat, nnd an encore was demanded in every instance. Tho con*
cort on the wholo is genorally admitted
to be about the best evor given in the
royal city, and if the company returns
for the purpose of giving another a
much larger hall than the Rink will be
required.
Tub PiioiiRisrs or Medical Enuoht-
knmknt lias led to the abandonment of
many antiquated remedies of questionable value, and- the adoption of newer
and more rational ones. Prominent
among tbo latter is Northrop k Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure,
tiro justly celebrated Blood Purifier, a
comprehensive family remedy for liver
complaint, constipation, indigestion, loss
of physical energy, and female com*
plaints.

Seligman escorted Blaine through various banking institutions iu the city,

assured him he wus not a candidate.
"But my brothers tell mo," persisted
Seligman, "you aro sure to be elected."
