TlieSi'N has already taken the
Kiouml thut the present difficulty
between the federal and provincial
authorities will be settled without
bloodshed, regarding unity and determination on the part of Manito
bans as being a guarantee of success. It has discountenanced as
idle ull talk in a contrary direction.
It is simply absurd to think that
even the strongest upholder of tht
authority ot the Dominion government would be willing to present to
the world the spectacle of shooting
down settlers because they persisted in exercising what was, by the
constitution of the country, their
rijrjht; though perhaps made technically wrongjby the exercise in an
unconstitutional manner of a legal
power. But to those who urge that
the federal authority should never
bo over-ridden, we would put a by-
no-means improbable case. Supposing the courts decide that Manitoba
is constructing the Bed River Valley railroad legally, as well as constitutionally; that the road is com-,
pleted, but that, when- an effort is
made to operate it the Dominion
government legally (but yet improperly) refuses to extend to it customs facilties, what then? That is it,
what then)—Winnipeg Sun.
One of the many results of the
enforcement of the Inter-State Commerce act is that it is more advantageous to own a railway in Oanada
than tp own one in the United
States. Of course the act does not
apply to transportation over a foreign road, ami shippers can get as
good terms as they need ask- for
over the Canada lines, while the
American roads are held to the
.'strict letter of the law. The treaty
of Washington, between the United
States aud Great Britain, ratified in
1674, permits the transportation of
goods in bond from points in one
country through the territory of tH'e
other back to the con htiy from whioh
the consignment was originallymade.
Under this treaty goods can be
shipped from New York or Boston
tb Montreal, there put on board the
Canadian roads and shipped to the
American port nearest their destination without paying duty at either frontier. The long and short haul
clause does not apply to roads across
the border. Naturally, therefore,
tho Canadian Pacific road is enabled to cut freight rates to figures far
below those which the American
roads can offer to shippers. It is
said that the Canadian corporation
has been enabled to draw away thou
sands of tons of freight which would
naturally crocs the continent, or a
large portion of it, by the American
lines. This is not a case in which
the Inter-State commission can give
relief. In order to save our own
railway lines that come in competition with Canadian lines, congress
will either have to change the exist:
ing law, or the treaty of Washington,
so far as it relates to shipments in
bond, will have to be abrogated.—
Chicago Journal
No wonder the latest Panama
Canal loan was a failure. No more
damning influence could have been
used against it than the report on
the state of the enterprise which
was intended to promote its success.
The report appeared in on extra
number of the Bulletin Canal du
Interoceanique, and was prepared
by M. de Lesseps himself. Its direct statements and the unavoidable
deductions to be drawn from them
present a record of recklessness and
infatuation scarcely to be paralleled.
The loans of the company in 1882,
1883 and 1881 netted $82,486,942.
That wai tha amount actually received. But as these loans were
made at a heavy discount, the indebtedness of the company on them
came to (125,964,700. Down to
Juno 1886 the point reached by
this report,, the loans received
amounted to #154,909,820. Out
of these enormous sums only about
$29,000,000 has been spent for actual canal cutting, and some $20,000-
000 for plant and stores. There remains, then, the sum of $105,000,-
000 and more to be accounted for.
It wont for "financine" for interest
and sinking fund, some of it; for
more questionable purposes more of
it; for "sundries" mora than $80,-
000,000, and for "offices expences"
in Paris not less than $2,000,000 a
year. And now M. de Lesseps,
nf ter all Ills pra/ligate expenditures,
for the first time admit! that there
mny be in the mountainous backbone of the Isthmus not yet pierced
tremendous obstacles which no human effortcangive assurance against.
After this, tho next issue of the
Bulletin will be awaited with eagerness. Should it announce the hopo-
less collapse of the whole undertaking, it could have no better introduction than the report M. de
Lesseps has just made- — N. Y.

her maid's child, waa guillotined at 6
o'clock this morning. He made ae
confession. A eest erased. wsjUtd
about the place of execution during
the whole night end kept up a eon.
stent howling and yelling. The din
wu horrible. When the chaplain)
who was to officiate at the execution,
arrived at 4:30 in the morning the
mass of people was so great that he
wu almost prevented from reaching
the gate of the prison. Pranrinl
marched from the oell to the aeafbld
with a firm step and defiant air.
When the executioners teiatd him he
resisted and fought desperately and
demanded they let him sloae. The
executioners overpowered him and
threw him upon the machine and in
an instant had him securely bound.
Immediately tht terrible knife wts
started. It descended with horrible
slowness at first but thin quickened
and the head of the murderer rolled
into tbe basket. The mob beeantt
very disorderly during the progress of
the execution.
CHAMBERLAIN'S NEW APPOINTMEST.
London, Aug. 31.—Joseph Chamberlain expected to goto America at
the close of the present session of parliament, bdt has decided to abandon
his visit The Neat, commenting
upon the appointment of Chamberlain
u a member of the fisheries commission, says: The appointment of the
commission is an important fact, but
that of Chamberlain u coinmiisionet
eclipses it in Interest That the government had an eye to iti own advantage is a perfectly safe calculation.
It ww obviously desirable to have him
out of the way. We congratulate him
and the country and felicitate him
upon his clever escape from the tools
of tho Tories.
BIG STRIKE IN GLASS WORKERS.
Pittsburg, Aug. 31.—There is no*
every probablity tbat all branches of
the glass industry will resume work
without any trouble, excepting window
glass workers. The window glass
workers and their employers have still
a wide breach between them, u the
strike which will be inaugurated tomorrow will throw several thousand
men out ot employment.
AN ABSCONDING CLERK.
Saco, Maine, Aug. 31.—The Merest
sensation Saco hu ever experienced
wu this morning when it wu learned
that the Saco & Biddeford Savings
Institution bad seriously suffered
financially through a young clerk who
hu absconded. Frank 0. McNeilly,
19 years of age, hu disappeared, taxing $35,000 in cash and United States
bonds to tho amount of $185,000, and
railroad, municipal and other bonds
amounting to $91,000. Though he
left town Monday afternoon yet the
bank officers and hit family have kept
the matter to quiet that the news did
not leak out till to-day. President
Goodall says the lou is so much lets
than the surplus that the bank will be
perfectly safe, even if the amount
taken by the absconding olerk it never
recovered, The U. 8. bonds are registered and oannot possibly be uted by
the thief.

Oar Silver Mines.
Hitherto the miners of British
Columbia have not concerned themselves much about any less valuable
metal than gold, but it seems that
wo aro now entering upon the era of
silver mining. The report brought
by Mr. Jaques from Illecillewaet,
which appeared in this paper yesterday, is"distinctly confirmatory of
reports that have for months been
coming from that region. The area
of the deposits of silver ore is very
extensive, and unless the common
indications are entirely deoeptive,
the value of the deposits is beyond
computation. It is said by mining
experts tbat there is silver ore worth
$100,000 now in sight on a single
ledge of one of Mr, Wright's fifteen
locations! But none of the ledges
have really been developed, and
those who have been informed as to
the indications will be quite pre
pared to receive without surprise a
confirmation of the general opinion
that there exists in these mountains
a bigger bonanza than has yet been
brought to light any where. Miners
and speculators are being attracted
in large numbers to this most interesting spot, and the country will
doubtless be thoroughly prospected.
It is probable that before the close
of next season a very large and
prosperous mining community will
be found at Illecillewaet; and the
impulse" of its development Will be
felt throughout the whole of British
Columbia. But silver is not the
only mineral for which: this region
seems destined to become famous.
The deposits of galena are inexhaustible, and the ore is very rich. The
mines are so near the railway track
that the cost of sending it to market will not be great As yet the
ore has been snipped in its natural
state, but when the mines are fully
opened and the output of ore has
become very large some one will
surely erect reduction works so as
to save the cost of transportation.
This will give the province a much
greater return from mining opera-,
tions, because it will furnish employment to a far larger number of men
and cause the pay roll to be greatly
increased. There never was a period
in the history of this country when
mining interests presented a more
hopeful aspect. In gold and silver
and lead we have a heritage which
alone would make us wonderfully
rich, and these added to other resources sufficient in themselves to'
make a prosperous province are destined to place British Columbia fore'
most in the provinces of the confederacy in point of importance.

It is stated that Prince Bismarck
is anxious to bring about a meeting
between the czar of Russia and the
German emperor during the former's visit to Denmark. This statement seems to give color to the
rumor of a probable understanding
between Germany and Russia with
respect to Bulgarian affairs. It is
■aid that Germany has offered to
support the Russian policy with
respect to Bulgaria if Russia will
promise neutrality in the event of
war between Germany and France.
Notwithstanding her apparent consciousness of strength, Germany is
not prepared to find herself surrounded by hostile forces as she
would be with Russia and France
allied against her. The understanding with Italy and Great Britain
may be comfortabB' enough, but it
iB not supposed to be of such a nature as to be depended on in an
emergency. In case of war with
France, it is doubtful if either
Great Britain or Italy would give
Germany more than "moral" support, or strict neutrality. But-moral
support would count for little against
active hostility, and Bismarck does
not propose to take the chances of
finding himself in such an uncomfortable predicament. At present
it is believed there is an arrangement between Russia and France
which ensures mutual aid in case of
German hostility. But if Russia
seeks to play oft* France against
Germany, the whole of the crockery
may come, down some day with a
suddenness tbat nobody expected.
Turkey teems disposed to i concede
the right of Russia to maintain a
certain amount of authority in Bui
garia, while Great Britain, Italy
and Austria conjointly oppose Russian interference. But if it becomes known in France that Russia
is coquetting with Germany, the
whole scheme of alliances will be
changed. -France will not tolerate
anything so clearly prejudicial to
her interests or her honor. Qet-
many is to her an implacable foe,
and her allies must, therefore, declare distinctly against her. Since
the deposition of Boulanger the war
like spirit of France has somewhat
cooled, but the people: will never be
thoroughly content until they have
taken satisfaction out of Germany
or perished in the attempt. Those
who have carefully observed the current of events mutt knew that Bismarck's polioy hat all along been one
of scl6stonett and self aggrandizement. When the exigencies of the
oirounistancs demand it in the interest otOamal he will be prepared to ca«t alliances to the winds
■nd atriU *hm the-greatest ad-
rantage ii to be found.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
IaaXaVCXTaTIT).)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper anil
Printing Concern was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of oltixens
of New Westminster, to be known as the
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
'Limited." 'The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
the British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Now Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tho object of
the new Oompany Is to continue the publication ol ihe Briiisb Columbian news-
paper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual Interest It will bo
to promote the development, especially
ot the Mainland. There will lie no
slackening of the energy hitherto displayed In the management of the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money,
The Colombian will continue to be entirely independent In both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of snch schemes as
may be considered in tho public interest.
The concern is nowentimly separate from
any other, business, tho book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. B.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
In hla own name snd for his own benefit.
It Is desirable that a dally newspaper
should be maintained In thia .city, and
tho new company asks for public patronage on the ground that lt is ongaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publlo welfare. It asks that the Columbian bo judged on Its own merits and
supported only so long aa its polioy Is
enoonslstt with its professions. In con-
sequence ol this business ohange all ao-
counts duo the concern must bo settled
without delay so that the books of the
former company may be adjusted and
olosed. Address all communications and
remittances to

jniri trr llnr eastern boundary u( l'ui'cmo

very edge of Asia nil the way across tlrnt
uii'iit continent, or tiround it, wns n slow,
journey; also across tlie Pacific to the
Americnn continent ngaiti. In America
nnd in Kuropc ami between thorn travel
lias long been reduced to a science, but
this is not half around tlio globe. Two
irreat enteritises have now been put on
foot—one of which lias just been accomplished and tire other is intended to
Ire finished within five years—whoroby
tiro Pacific may readily bo crossed in
ocean "greyhounds" aim tlio Asiatic continent will bo traversed by a railroad.
Already tho trans-Asiatic journey has
been shoir^ened greatly by tho construc-
liou of tlio TraiiH-Casiiian Iioail, now just
completed by Russia. Tlio Uuesian generals anil soldiers who have conquered
< !entral Asia haye shown great bravery,
but the railroad engineers who constructed the Trans-Caspian Railway did
mi oven more important sen-ice, for they
have really opened u continent.- Its construction presented difficulties equal to
those ofany hazardous military campaign,
lis route runs through ever moving sands
of a desert, destitute of water and wood.
Threo grave quostions presented themselves to tho engineers: How to keep the
-way clear of the unruly sand 1 Whenco
lo get water 1 And how to get fuel ? Six
hundred nnd seventy miles of railway
now in actual operation is a splendid
answer to all those queries?
The liangor from ever-moving sand was
obviated thus: Clay was brought from a
(.•rent distance and spread over sand, sea
writer was brought and sprinkled over
I lint uneasy element; at last fences were
I  built against Bandy winds.   Water was
inouglit to the railway stations from the
neighboring mountains by a system of
pipes, without nny pumps.   As to fuel,
oil from liaku proved to lie an excellent
,   sulrstituto for wood nud coal—a substitute
I that has been made in Pennsylvania.
Considering the great  difficulties tho
Trims-Caspian Railway has been pushed
very rapidly.   This is owing in the first
place to tlio unlimited supply of money,
ihir Czar's government being its ownor.
In the second placo thero nover was a
lni-k of laborers oven in the midst of a
srmdv desert, for a number of regiments
of solilieiu, especially trained ana drilled
for- railway building wore always at the
engineer's command.   When this rail'
road is once in good working order, tbo
Iriissian Government will not need to
erect large fortresses in ita Asiatic possessions, for in case of need any number of
soldiers enn be sent there with rapidity.
New Russia can threaten India moro
ell'ectively than ever beforo.   Besides its
military significance that railway is very
important ovon purely from an economic,
standpoint.    Russia   annually  imports
cotton (chiefly from tho United States)
valued at 70,000,000 to 80,000,000 roubles
in gold (from $-.0,000,000 to 500,000,000).
Now it is said tbat a considerable amount
of cotton will bo brought from Central
'Asia. Formerly a transport from Buchnra
to Moscow took ubout four months, and
now it is only ten dnys.   Within a Bhort
time from tho opening of tho railway for
private parties, there was transported ly
it about 0,000,000 pounds of cotton.  It is
possible that some time in the future
Russian manufacturers will stop buying
our cotton; but we can take some satisfaction iu the fact that it was an American
locomotive that first ran on that railway
and wakened the wild inhabitants of the
ik'serts and oases of Central Asia. But to
return to the journey around the world.
The Trans-Caspian Road has shortened
it a good deal, Englishmen now go by it
to India, and save about a week over the
Suez Canal route by water.   But tbe
j I'oatest shortening ol the journoy will be
made by tbe completion ol the Trans-
Si berirlli Road.
I    A project to build a railway through
i tiro great territory of Siberia was made
| by on American company about ten
years ago which offered ita services and
capital to the Russian Government.   Al
I ho Czar would not agree to the terms ol
Ihe oiler, which were like those on which
the Pacific Railroads were built in this
country, the project was then dropped.
But the American suggestion has had its
eli'ect in Russia.   Since then the government greatly assisted  the companies
which undertook to push their lines
toward the Ural Mountains.   Now there
are two lines having their termini on the
Ural, one at Orenburg and the othor at
Ekaterinburg, both places being distant
from St. Petersburg about 1,500 miles.
►The question of pushing tho railway lines
beyond tho Ural has been warmly discussed in Russia for the last five years;
but tho leading railroad men and statesmen could not agree as to what route
should bo preferred, the South Siberian
or the Central Siberian.  Tho latter route
Inrs been finally selected.  Tbe Czar has
approved the decision of the council of
tho empire to build a railway running
from the Ural Mountains all the way to
llio Pacific, a distance oi 6)130 miles by
direct route.  However, aa in Siberia
I hero are on tho route great rivers like
llio Mississippi aud Missouri, they will
servo to shorten the railway proper by
Ilia establishment ol steamship lines.
Tlio great Russian Railway (about 7,000
miles) will run as follows; St. Peters-
. burg, Moscow, Nljni-Novogorod, Tobolsk,
I Tomsk, Irkutsk, Lako Baikal, Strctinisk,
Nertchinsk, and Vladivostok on tlie Pacific.   As far as Tobolsk the road is to be
yet constructed, making 400 miles, From
Tobolsk It is easy to reach Tomsk by
water way, running down the Irtish River
and up tho Obi River, a distance of ovor
1,100 miles. Thon Irkutsk can be reached
either by direct railway or by roll and
water. From Tomsk to Irkutsk it is more
than 700 miles.  Thonce onward, a railway, a part of which must be cut through
tire high mountains, must extend a dist-
tnnco of about 400 miles, and thon tho
journey will be down tho Amour River
which flows into the Pacific.   Steamers
rhnvo been running on the Amour about
ten yeaie,  From the point on the Amour
lying tho farthest south a railway must
lm constructed, leading to Vladivostok.
This town is situated on the farthest south
point of the Pacific shore belonging to
Russia, and Is the only Siberian liarbor
that docs not freeze during tlio winter.
Tiro distance from Northinsk to \Tsdi-
vostok is 3.000 miles,   The time that will
bo required for tho journoy from St.
Petersburg to Vlodivostok is about fifteen
rlavs,   Tho trip across the Pacific has
just boon shortened by the fast line of
11111111101-8 from Voncouver to Yokohama,
which makes tho journey in fifteen days.
This will soon be shortened.   Already it
lias l|i|rl lire ofl'ect of lessening the prieo
if passage from Sun Francisco to China
:o J200.   By the groat Siberian railway
;lio   wprld-girdllug   excursion  will bo
[really shortened,   Let a traveler start
eastward from New York. In six days
he will bo ot Liverpool; in threo days
moro at St. Petersburg; in fifteen days
more on the Pacific coast at Vladivostok;
six days more at Yokohama; fifteen days
more at Vancouver, and five days more
back again in Now York, having been
gono but fifty dayB. Men now living are
reasonably suro to take this excursion as
a vacation pastime, nnd it may not cost
niorc than }ll,000.
Stale Brenil.
A great deal of bread is thrown away
liy thoso who can ill ail'ord It, from luck
of knowledgo how to utilize it. On tlio
farm, in most instances, of course, stale
bread is not wholly lost, for if wet n little
it Milken good food, for the poultry, or
mny he given to the pigs, but this is not
the' best way lo make use of it even by
those who have poultry and pigs.
There are many wnys to utilize stalo
bread. It makes'delicious griildlc-cnkcs
wlicu soaked in cold water. Three sniull
slices with water enough to cover them
should be sufficient, when the milk nud
Hour nro added, to make two quarts of
batter. Somo prefer to put iu one egg,
while others like them fully ns well without. Whon the bread is soaked soft,
make it fine with a spoon, add tlie milk
nnd flufliciont flour to stiffen enough so
that the cakes can bo easily turned. If
sour milk is used odd to the batter ono
even teaspoonful of soda. If you do not
use sour milk use twice ns much cream
of tartar'as soda. French'toast, always
a favorite dish with children, can be made
of thin slices cut from a stale loaf and
moistened in milk'and eggs—two eggs to
a pint of milk—nnd then fried on a griddle with a mixture of butter and lard or
butter and beef drippings, and may be
eaten with sugar or syrup, liko griddle-
cakes.
Pieces of bread which are not too hard
can be made into a resemblance of turkey
dressing. Cut the bread into dice, and if
you hsve a quanity of gravy from which
fat can be taken, left from any kind of
roast—though a piece of butter will do as
well—thoroughly grease the bottom of a
spider, put in the broad, with somo little
cli urrks of butter and irlenty of seasoning;
then pour enough boiling water on 'to
moisten it, cover tightly, and, inn moment, it will steam through nnd you can
stir it, nnd either brown a little or have it
moist like dressing. It should bo eaten
with gravy over it, nnd is a good substitute lor potatoes. The little dry, hard
pieces ana crusts which * always' accumulate can he put in a pie-tin in an oven
that is just hot enough to dry and make
them a light brown, then roll tbein fine
nnd put awny to use in making croquettes,
frying fish, etc. Even theso slightly
browned crumbs make excellent griddle-
cakes with tho addition of one egg and a
handful of flour nnd milk to a batter.
Stale bread may bo utilized .in. making a
Ujfisttlrd ptiddlug also; The fact Is, that
where economy is the rule broad will not
be thrown awny.
An Asian California.
A letter from St. Petersburg in the
Journal dm Dcliats gives an interesting
description of the new California, as tho'
new gold mines discovered in the valloy
of tho Djolguto River are called. This
valley is upon tho Chineso bank of tho
Amoor, opposite tiio Russian Colony of
Tguuchina, and us the soil is very marshy,
and there unv no roads, 'it is only accessible in winter. Gold wus first discovered
there iu May, 18S4, and it booh attracted
a great many adventurers, the earliest
comers being Russian deserters and escape! 1 convicts from Siberia, and by the
month of January in last yenr there was
a colony of 1)000 Hussians; the total having
been very much increased since, whllo
there are also about 0000 Chinese and ISO
adventurers of different nationalities, the
Inst named of whom have joined tlie
Russians, tho organization of tho colony
being altogether Russian. The golu-
finders are divided into 722 artels (small
groups) of workmen, all of whom are absolutely equal. These artels elect twelve
ciders (starchina), who do not work themselves, but superintend the diggings and
receive a salary of 200 roubles a month.
Thoy aro selected from among the dealers
in gold and tlie tavern keepers, and lonn
a sort of district police corps. Tboy do
not meet with any interference from tlie
Chinese authorities in this remote valley,
tbe laws of which are very simplo but
severe, tho penalty of death being inflicted for cheating at play, for adulterating
tlie gold dust, or ior theft; while tlog-
fjngis inflicted for drunkenness during
be hours of labour or, for bringing females into the colony.' Since the foundation of the colony there have been only
three murders and two inflictions of the
death penalty, n Russian having been
hung for adulterating the gold dust, and
a .Tew flogged to death for having sprccd
fatso news us to tho approach of a body of
Russian troops, hoping thereby to tend'
down the price of gold owing to the panic. There aro twenty-seven taverns in
tho colony, nud, owing to tho competition,
the prices rue not high, except for spirits.
Thu golil-liclris, which are twenty-five
miles in length by three miles broad, aro
said to ire very rich, and seven pounds of
Sold nro obtiuncd from thirty-two bun-
red-weight of gravel, ovon  with  tho

Preliminaries to Killing Mad Dogs In India.
The amusing, nud at tho same timo instructive commentary on tliu new local
self-government policy fn India is afford:
cil by tlio following resolution, recently
issued by n municipal committee in the
northwest provinces. Tho subject is the
destruction of mad dogs:
"It is no doubt impossible to ascertain
tlio degrco of madness of a dog killed,
nnd tlie only possible way of determining
tho question is that whenever thu sweepers notice any dog of serial' mildness,
such as hns licgun to bile sill assault
people, they should report it to tlio Mun-
fliiriui, who will issue proper orders for
killing the dog; ami after It lias been
examined hy tne native doctor, the jrcr-
son who will kill it shall be rewarded
annus eight for each of such dogs. Tho
symptoms of usual madness In a dog are:
First, attack on the people.
Srorxl, not recognizing Ills master.
Third, senselessness in general.
When these symptoms bo proved to
havo been truly shown by tlie dog, such a
dog will bo taken as mad, nml unscrupulously killed on tlio spot, and thu pemon
ontitled will bo awarded annas four for
each of such dogs."
Ilili almost rlvalB tlio story of the country station master who telegraphed up to
headquarters;- ''Tiger jumping about
platform. Tloiiso telegraph orders."
■i n.w       I   ss   s in

There are but few ciucs where the use
ol the. word "very" strengthens an idea.
For instance, take this sentence: "Mrs.
Blank is a very fine writer." How much
stronger tlie sentence is witlvii.it "l0
"very." To say that n mollis very well
knowq Indicates that ho is les-r known
than one of whom wo say "Ho is well
known." This weakening element is a
cliarai'toi'islio of llie word "vory." Tlio
eamo might be said of nil sn'perlluous
words, Ihougli few, if any, are ho penrist-.
ently of that character as the word in
question.

A Chinaman was arrested yesterday
by the oity police on a charge of selling
opium to an Indian. This morning he

but his ease wu remanded until Friday. In connection with the above
offence it may be said that tho chief of
police for some time pail has been
making investigations aa to the actual
amount of the fatal drug that is sold
to Indians by celestials. Mr, Devlin
sent tiro .. listed Indians into all the
Chinese stores in the city for the purpose of purchasing opium, and out of
thirty merchants who were put
to the test it was found that only two
would supply the Siwash with the obnoxious article. One of these offend-
en was instantly arrested on the spot,
and if tlio charge is proven against him,
he will be dealt with in sucli a way as
to impress his fellow countrymen with
the danger of committing au offence of
this kind.

Chicago, August 31.—Information
was received in this city to-day through
a reliable source that tho supreme
court, when it meets on Monday, will
affirm the sentence of the seven anarchists condemned tn death. Justico
Magruder is reported aa saying there
will he no dissenting opinions. Chief
Police Ebenold and Sheriff Watson
have already received intimation of
what is coming, and they have been
making active preparations to meet any
emergency that may arise, An official who has watched the sheriff
closely said last night that Watson had
not been to the jail for a week or
more. It is no secret that he has looked ahead to the decision of. the supreme court with a kind of terror as
the duty will fall upon him of hanging
the 7 condemned men.
GETTING KID OF THE INDIANS.
Washington, Aug. 31. —Interior department officials are of opinion that
the war in Colorado ie a one-sided affair and a wanton attack on Indiana by
bushwhacking cowboys. A telegram
from Agent Byrnes says that Oolorow
has been on the reservation since the
27th inst. - A Coloradian aaid hen today: "The main idea of our people is
to get rid of the infernal Indians and
that is why we all rather favor the Indian war." The* department has determined to tako all reporta hereafter
with some allowance, and will give
Byrnes such power as will enable him
to secure the Indians properly and protect them from encroachments of the
whites.

One Who Knows.
, Artesian Well.
As is well known the supply of water
in this city ie very limited and liable
during the dry season to be completely
exhausted. The houses upon the hill
are supplied by wells and some only by
cisterns, During the rainy season
water is, of coune, abundant; but in
the summer the cisterns invariably become dry, as also do the majority of
the welli, although some of the wells
are sunk to a considerable depth
(soventy to ninety feet).
It is thought by many that, by boring to a depth of say 2000 feet,' an
abundant supply of the best water can
bo obtained—a supply sufficient to accommodate the wants of a muoh larger
oity than Westminster. A thoroughly
practical man who has had large e«.
periotico in boring in the eastern part
of Canada and the United Stales is expected to be in this province in the
course ol a month and would be prepared to commence operations iu this
city by about Ihe 1st of November
noxt. Tho oust of boring to a depth
of 2000 feet would be about (6,000.
It is therefore contemplated to bore
at some convenient place on the high
land of this city, to be selected when
operations are ready to* be comuioticcd
tu o depth not exceeding 2000 t«et,aud
a oompany to be incorporated with a
capital of not less than (5,000, divided
into shares of (10 each, is in process of
formation. The shares sold are tn be
paid in cash; but the cash received on
such sales will be deposited by tbe
company in the bank of British Columbia and not used until the contract
for boring is satisfactorily completed.
Operations will therefore be commenced nbout the 1st of November
noxt, if arrangements can be made.
If a.good supply of wator oan be ob
tained in this way, every person oan
see the great benefit and importance of
it. The results of the boring are not,
however, restricted to w^ter, and Ihe e
ere good reasons to hope for tbe discovery of oil, coal or some other valuable article if water is not found,
Tho time for making arrangements
is short, and it Is hoped that parsons
desiring to take stock in tho company
will at once make known their Intentions. Information regarding the
company oan be obtained aud subscriptions for stock mado at Rand
Bros, olllce, oity. Yours respectfully,
Edwin Rand.
