current Events and Opinions.
It hns come to be held as a general opinion tliat marriages between
first couBins were productive of inferior samples of physical and mental being. Researches by unprejudiced enquirers do not seem to confirm this opinion. Statistics nre
exceedingly imperfect, but .so far as
enquirers hnvo gone there seems to
be in fact no reason to believe that
imperfect mental or physical development is found any oftener as the
result of these marriages than any
other. Whero the cousins themselves arc possessed of healthy
minds in hoalthy bodies, the offspring are not likely to suffer, but
it is believed physical or mental
det'uets will be perpetuated.
The President;, it is said, does not
intend to allow the result of the
Ohio election to interfere in tho
least with the carrying out of his
civil service policy.V| That colossal
back-bone which is among Mr.
Cleveland's most valuable possessions is said to bo in excellent condition, and it is to be presumed that
the assaults of the hungry oflioe-
scekors upon the white house will
be no more successful in the future
than they have been in tlie past.
Tlio President means to be even
more independent in making liis
appointments than he has heretofore
been. It is announced that lie will
make all appointments himself, tliat
he trill personally exathine applications, aud that he will not consider
the recommendation of anyone as
conclusive. He evidently folt his
former mistakes most keenly, and if
he can help it there will be no more
jail birds or incompetents appointed
to office.—Scuttle Post.
Our thanks are due and very
heartily paid to tho Mail for putting
what ought to bo a final extinguisher, so far as Canada is concerned,
ou imperial confederation. It was
time that our political horizon should
be cleared of this nebulous fancy,
which obscured and confused our
view, while it never took or was
likely to take a definite, much less
a practical, form, This has now
been effectually done. If tho great
Conservative and Imperialist organ
of the Dominion pronounces against
tho scheme, what chance has the
scheme of acceptance here? Of tho
two intelligible objects of the project, the submission at tho colonies
to an imperial tariff and tlieir assessment to imperial armaments,
neither would receive the assent of
a hundredth part of onr people.
The unlimited exportation of imperial pauperism and vagrancy to
colonial shores, if that may be reckoned as a third object, would
scarcely find more favor thau the
other two. That the refusal to put
back the clock und part with our
self-government for the sake of a
nominal representation in a parliament on the other sido of the Atlantic implies no want of affection
for the mother country, of gratitude
for all that she has given us, of
prido in her greatness, or of desire
that tho bond of the heart botween
us and her may endure for over, tho
character of the Mail itself is a
sufficient guarantee,—The Week.
John Taylor and George Q. Cannon, tho chief leaders of tho Mormons, are secreted from tho officers
of the law, who have warrants for
thoir arrest, but they have issued
an address exhorting the faithful to
hold fast by the "new and everlasting uoveivant" of polygamy,, and declaring that as. they did not reveal
Hv they cannot withdraw or re-
vounce it. They invoke blessings
Upon the noble mon and women
who have sealed their devotion to
principles by submission to bonds
and imprisonment undor the Edmunds law.. They condemn those
who have promised to obey the law,
and deplore the popular prejudice
against tho saints. But the paper
of Cannon and Taylor is also defensive and deprecatory. Thoy disclaim any design to propagate polygamy in the United States, or to
oppose tho practices of Christian
countries, 'lhey desire, on the contrary, to limit the practice to "the
gathering places of the saints." But
even among them it is strictly
guarded, nnd is not generally admissible. It is never to be extended beyond tho Church, and it is
limited oven within tho pale. The
tone of the address, despite its do-
fiance and the secretion of its authors, betrays apprehension. It
shows 11 conviction thnt the government is in earnest, and that the
Kdmunds law is a policy which will
lm enforced. Something is gained
by the admission that polygamy is
not a thing to bo preached and pro
pagated as a universal practice, but
among themselves it must be re-
sbrlete&.—Harpsr's Weekly,
The substitution of petroleum for
coal on the ferry steamers of the
Central Pacific Hailroad Company
was noticed at length in this journal
some days ago.    The experiment
was first tried on the Solano, which
crosses the Strait of Carquinez daily
with freight and passenger trains.
The Solano is tho largest ferry-boat
in the world.   It was not until the
use of petroleum on that boat had
for many months been demonstrated
to be a complete success that other
ferry-boats were adapted to tbe use
of the same fuel.   One largt passenger ferry-boat and a large freight
ferry-boat may now be seen crossing
and re-crossing' the bay without so
much us a faint color of smoke issuing from the smoke-ntacks.   The
saving in the consumption of fuel
has already been stated.   The great
iron steamship whioh for more than
a year past has made an average of
three trips a month between this
port and Tacoma, on Puget Sound,
bringing down on each trip 4,000
tons of coal from the. Carbon Hill
mine, is  laid   up at the railroad
wharf on the Oakland side.   Her
smoke-stack is capped, and ib looks
as if she would not enter the coal
trade again for many a day.   It is
given out that the sailing vessels
can bring down coal at cheaper rates
than steamers.   But if this were a
fact it was as well known when the
San "Pedro began to bring coal from
the Carbon Hill mine as ib is now,
There is probably another reason
for withdrawing the steamers from
the coal business.    Prospectively,
there is a large decrease in the consumption  of coal for steam purposes, occasioned by the substitution
of petroleum.    What this decrease
now is by the change effected in
these    large   steamers   cannot   be
stated exactly.     But ib is probably
not less than 150 tons of coal daily,
or -1,500 tons of coal per month.
If all the ferry steamers of this
line finally used petroleum the difference in the consumption of coal
would be equal to the amount which
the San Pedro could bring monthly
from tho Puget Sound port.   But
the use of petroleum is increasing
in other quarters.     Petroleum is
now burned in cooking-stoves and
ranges, and is nlso used for heating
rooms, not only in grates, but is
used iu hot-air and hot-water furnaces.   The saving iu a large cooking-range by virtue of this substitution is said to be not loss than 40
per cent, in the item of fuel, while
greater satisfaction is afforded by a
more perfect distribution of heat
and the ease with which it is controlled.     In a country where coal
is  cheap   no such decisive results
could be obtained.     But there is
little prospect that coal will ever bo
cheap in the towns on the Pacific
coast.     It never has been cheap
whon compared with the prices in
the  eastern   markets.     To   what
extent petroleum will be substituted
for coal iu the manufacturing establishments hore is still nn open question.    If onco it is demonstrated
that  a  substantial  gain  will   bo
effected, a general substitution will
be  pretty sure to follow.—& F,

There still seems to be a wide
diversity of opinion respecting the
propriety of tho course pursued by
tho editor of the Pall Mall Gazette
in publicly exposing some of London's vices. It is possible tbe circumstances may have justified such
an extraordinary act, but nothing
can excuse the repetition of the
story outside of the kingdom. Probably Mr. Stead will be convicted
of abduction in the cose of Miss
Armstrong, but liis conviction does
not ntlect tbe main question at all;
and it is not impossible after nil
that Ins intentions throughout the
whole atl'air were worthy of commendation. 'People should not hastily rush nt conclusions.
Eastern Development.
Quite recently it was announced
that tlie Chinese government liad
determined upon the construction
of n railway system throughout that
country. This determination furnishes evidence of a great change
of sentiment in tbe minds of both
government nnd people in the flowery kingdom. Tlie time is within
the recollection of most of us when
a company of Englishmen undertook to build a short line iu China,
and after tlie material had been
brought und the road partly constructed, popular superstition impelled the natives to forbid its completion, and the rails had to be
tukrn up. This superstition must
have disappeared, and it is quite
possible the intercourse of Chinamen with the whites has to a great
extent been the cause. It is now
stated that tlie railway fever 1ms
struck Japan, and that island has
now nbout 300 miles of railway,
and travel on these roads has become quito popular. Japan is in
many respects quite in advance of
China in internal improvements, as
she is iu hor willingness to adopt
the appliances of more civilized
nations. She has shown a disposition to extend voluntarily the
freedom of her government, and to
elevate her people and qualify them
for the enjoyment of free institutions. It is almost certain that
tiie dawn of a better civilization in
Japan has influenced tlie people of
China and stimulated them to an
endeavor to keep pace with their
enterprising neighbor. One cannot view theso new development? in
tliese immensely populous coun tri
without wondering what maybe the
final result. The resources cf China
and Japan arc immense, and the
people are by no means destitute of
such qualities as are needful for a
great and powerful nation. If these
people avail themselves of their re
sourcs for peace or war, they will
undoubtedly become very formidable rivals in every way; and instead of being despised and of no
account, they will speedily be sought
after as most desirable and powerful allies.
cause It had no direct cpritiectioh
with thc 0, P. R. Tlio great bulk
of the freight for the interior has
reached the railway at Port Hammond, and there also have the passengers up and down been transferred. Port Hammond has not
been prepared to tnko anything
like tho full advantage of its position as the junction, because of the
lack of facilities. Nevertheless,
tliese advantages have been lost to
this city, and they need not have
beon lost if wo had moved earlier
for railway connection and secured
it. If a branch line had been constructed from this city at the first,
tho whole trunsfer business would
have boen dono here, and this city
would have been the centre for supplies. It is specially important that
our isolated condition in respect to
the railway should como to an cud
now, and that wo should be placed
in a position to handle economically
whatever traffic may legitimately
come to us through this channel,
Within tho noxt few months the
C. P. 11. will be fully completed
and equipped, and trndo then will
at once begin to flow through channels very different from thoso which
havo hitherto been maintained. The
importance of securing an early connection with the 0. P. R. lies in
the fact that without such a connection we must be content to soe thc
trade pass by without as much as
halting at our doors. The new
channels may be filled with business
to overflowing, but we shall not be
one of them ; and when commerce
onpe becomes established ill any direction, it cannot be easily diverted.
If this city is not connected by railway with the C. P. R. when it opens
for regular traffic next summer, an
opportunity will be lost such as we
shall never again find within our
reach. We aro not sure that the
branch line may not even bo ready
for operation before February, when
usually it is not possible for steamers to reach Port Hammond without
delay and risk. Then thc mails
and trathc will come to this city instead of going to Port Moody, nnd
the inconveniences experienced during the two weeks of severe weather
last winter will not be repeated.
The sum of money asked from the
oity is in all less than $f>0,QD0. It
has already been stated that this
loan is merely temporary. As soon
as it is deemed prudent a portion of
the squares will be sold and the debentures cancelled. Our if the citizens prefer to keep the squares and
pay the interest on the debentures,
it is fully within their power to do
so. If it would cost us twice the
sum mentioned, we are sure it
would be forthcoming before rail
way connection would bo abandoned;
for without a railway this city can
never hope to maintain her position
as the commercial metropolis of tlie
mainland.

In. our last issue we pointed out
some of the circumstances which
made it expedient for this city to
give the council power to borrow
temporarily a sum of loney sufficient to meet our railway obligations When tlm proposal win; first
made . give a bonus for railway
connection .fch the C, V. R., ifc was
expected that before the time oame
for payment a sufficient sum would
be realized from the sale of public
squares. Our waders know how
the calculations in this respect miscarried, and that before proceeding
it was thought best to have a special act of the legislature confirming
the by-law upon the authority of
which it was proposed the sale
should bo held. Bo much delay
wns consumed with these proceeding.-!, and so much uncertainty afterwards surrounded the schemes of
the railway people, in as far as the
branch lino was concerned, that
nearly the whole of this year has
been allowed to pass without any
iidvauco in the direction of railway
construction. The official letter
from Mr. VanHome which wo published on Wednesday, and the fact
that the final survey of the branch
is just being completed, lead us to
expect confidently that all vexatious
delays have ended nnd that tlie time
for energetic action is at hand.
Every citizen who is acquainted at
all with our circumstances must
know that there are urgent reasons
why the work of constructing this
railway connection should he undertaken and completed with all possible speed. In the wny of trade
this city has lost thousands of dollars within the past three yean be-

wob seldom empty. This shows that
in spite of all assertions to the contrary, prohibition in a great moral reform, so far as tho city of Athens is
concerned. Tho street coners that
were once the abiding places of half-
drunken loafers are now deserted.
The most marked improvement is noted
in tho colored population.

now in jail. Oneof them proves to be
a man named Brand, heretofore believed to be highly respectable, and
twu accomplices named Major and

named Kelly were caught at Farwell.
Kelly, after an examination, was discharged, his chief uffenoo appearing to

Colonist,
Muiuikh or Suicide.—Last Wednesday night a mun named Hicks was
found lying on a street, in Victoria shot
through the stomach. Tho man had,
apparently, juat mado preparations to
lenve for England with his wife, nnd
stated thut he had been ahot by two
men and robbed of n large sum of
money. From circumstances which
havo sincn como to light it is strongly
suspected thnt the man shot himself;
and the apparent motive is that ho had
been pretending to be well off, whereas
ho had no money, nud finding that tho
truth could not be longer disguised, he
struck upon thia stratagem to account
for his want of funds. Tho wound is
very dangerous, but may not bo fatal.

HICKS DIES YESTtMAY ATTMNOON.
By Telegraph. J
Victoria, 30.—There are many who
believe the case of Hicks who was shot
on Wednesday to be oneof premeditated suicide nud many theories for
this supposition uro advanced. He
died nt 10 o'clock to-day. An inquest
was being held this nfternoon and possibly the evidence taken will give a

which contained $145; it was snatched
by (one of tho proprietors of tho
saloon) who said he would keep it for
safety; I protested, but he fild keep it,
Now, for the result: as I was three
sheets in the wind, McKay, acting the
part of a friend, demanded a receipt
for the money, and fortunately he got
it; well, all went merrily, but iu the
morning I got up nnd began to hunt iu
vain for iny money; McKay, who slept
with mo, said it was behind the bar
and that he had a receipt for it; down
we wont to the bar, when tho following
sceno took place: "Havo your bitters,
Scotty?" "Yes, but let's settle up."
"Oh! nover mind: when nre you going
away.'' "NextMonday." "Woll, stop
here uud we'll take enre of you aud tho
bawbees," And ho did, with a vengeance. They kept me there drunk
and drinking with Tom, Dick and
Harry till I caught oold one night; I
went to bed like a war-horse with the
window up; got up in tho morning
with sore throat and had the mumps
for five days; could swallow uo food,
only drink, drink, drink; well, tho
tailor got crazy, and all the bums in
town; and finally I wont crazy myself
ahd to remained until Friday, the 8th;
then I wanted to settle up. "No,
you'd butler wait till Monday." Being
stupid and easily advised, 1 stopped;
on Sunday I sobered up; Monday
morning I called at tho bar to settle
up, and asked, "How doweBtand?"
Down comes the slate; "You are in
my debt juat $114.25." "You must
bo mistaken!" "No, there's the slate;
it won't lie." I was thunderstruck,
but no uae, there wus, the slate and
there was I; what could Ido? They
had my money, and I was in tlieir
powor. Well, I got together and wont
on board the boat, and nrrived at
Somas with just $25, where I got Mrs.
Hall to fix me up with porridge, &c,
and I am well now, thank God. Now,
sir, I hope this may be a warning to
young men in the city. I nut au old
man of CO; got my head trapanned in
the Crimean war, have been twice
rouud tho world, wub two years whaling in the Arctic, and ought to know
better. But I havu taken the pledge,
and, being iv Scotchman, I will keep
my word as my honor.   Theso deud-
falla are nearly all about alike, as	
aaid to me, "If you had been in any
other station (saloon) in town you
wouldn't have had a dollar in the
morning!" Now, God grant thnt I may
have resolution enough to keep my
pledge." The statement of our correspondent, whieh ia probably correct,
enables the public tu get a glimpse at
some of the practices carried ou under
the cover of a saloon license! We believe thoro aro some hotels tnd saloons
whore suctt things would not be permitted, but they are in the minority.
Thore is very littlo difference between
this and common robbery!

Hudson's Bay.—Capt. Gordon, who
went out under direction of tho Canadian government to mako explorations
and observations iu tho Hudson Bay
region, reports that, in his opinion,
the whole route is feasible for navigation four months of the year by properly built and equipped steamers, and
it is simply a question of whether the
opening up of tho route with such u
short season of navigation will pay in
competition with existing routos. The
sura total of the observations is that
the average temperature is much lower
than generally imagined, the average
cold spells being of thirty below zero.
Regarding the ice conditions, Captain
Gordon said they varied ao every year
that no ono year was a criterion for
another. The navigator simply had to
take the ioe ns he found it, and snil
wherever he saw open wntcr or tho ice
waa thinnest. That was the experience of two Hudson Bay captains whom
he interviewed who had navigated that
rogion for a quarter of a century. Dr,
Bell, of tho Geological Survey, said hu
hnd made n great many geological,
zoological, and botanical discoveries,
and learned a groat deal about tho
habits of tho birds and mammals from
naturo. All tho discoveries nnd information point to the fact of vast
mineral wealth in those regions; gold,
silver, copper, iron, lead, plumbago,
mica, asbestos, nyrites for making sulphuric acid, anthracite opal, and a
great variety of coarser mineral products and minerals of scientific interest
only. He thinks the experiments
ought to bo continued. Dr. Bell and
hia assistant Mr. McNaughton, n New
Yorker, tell thrilling stories of bear
and walrus hunting experiences. Thoy
saw hundreds of these quadrupeds and
killed scores of them; the walruses
weighing a toil each and tho bears
1500 and 1700 pounds. Some of the
bears showed light; one tried to get on
board the steam launch, and nearly
succeeded in upsetting uud dimvtiiiig
the occupants, McNaughton and a
comrade named (-initio had au exceedingly narrow escape with their lives
from an infuriated brute who had been
wounded, and it was only by thu
utmost coolnesB and bravery that lhey
conquered Iuh beat-ship with rifle mid
axe. McNaughton presented Gritl'm
with a gold watch in recognition of his
bravery in standing by uud saving his
life. All agree that tho country is
enormously wealthy in fur-bearing
animals and fisheries, and that the
furs, thu profitable trndo in which hns

A BIk Explosion.
One of the most difficult pieces of
railway engineering ori thu Island railway is tho Niagara canon, noat'Gukl-
stream. The bottom of Iho ciiuon is
over 300 Feet below the IovbI of tho
railway line. In form it is Bemi-circular, roiideiing it impossible to build u
trestle work whereon to carry the truck
across tho yawning chasm. At ono
time it was supposed that the only
feasible plan for overcoming the dilli*
cully was to tunnel the mountain.
Aftor much consideration and examination it was decided to lill up tho canyon by blasting tho rock on the mountain slope. Tho work was entrusted
by Mr. Dunsmuir and his engineer,
Mr. Hunter, to Mr. Tiuu. O'Neil, .an
experienced contractor from San Franoisco, who at one time was superintendent of tho Central Pacific railway of
Orlifornia, and who also constructed
the Market street cable lino for tho
street cars and likewise nupurintended
tho great blast on Sheep island for tho
sea wait iu San Francisco. About a
month ago Mr. O'Neil sot himself energetically to work on the contract.
He secured the services of experienced
furemon and with n gang of 25 men
ran four tunnels in thu shapo of an L
iuto the rook. Into these was deposited
15,000 His,, or 7A tons, of Judsoti
powder. It was intended to sot ofT
the mine to-day but. on Saturday it
wus found that tho holes were filling
up with wator, necessitatiiig-thoir being
plugged with bugs of flour: It was
thdn resolved to explode ttio mine yesterday. Accordingly nt 3 o'clock, tho
chief engineer, Mr. Hunter, and a fow
other gentlemen gathered near the
scene to witness the explosion. Mr.
Gordon of tho Hamilton powder company supplied tho battery and the
wires. At the hour mimed Mr. O'Noil
opened the key and in un instant tho
earth, rocks and trees trembled as if
they had been an aspen leaf, with a
terrific crush rocks weighing tons were
Bent spinning into ttio air many hundreds of fuet. The confined powder
liad found relief nnd mnde itself heard
nnd felt nt a dintaiieu of many miles,
After tliu explosion its effect was examined when it was discovered that at
least 00,000 cubic yardB of rock hnd
beon thrown into tho abyss below,
which will so reduco the height of the
trestle work that it will be but 120
feet high and 00 feet in length. So
carefully had everything beon planned
that not an inch had been left of intervening rock. It was a remarkable undertaking, involving either the making
or losing of a few thousand dollars.
Mr. O'Neil received much counsel
from Mr. Hunter, tho engiueer-in-
ehii-f. The sickness of Mr. Antonolli,
the former contractor, prevented his
boing present. Mr. O'Noil waB ably
assisted in the difficult task by his
partner, Mr. Finney. Both gentlemen naturally feel elated over their
success.—Victoria Times,

''The approaching completion of thu
Canndinu Pacific Railway causes special interest to bu centred on its western terminus. The Bite hns beon under discussion by governmont, railway,
military and naval exports since tho
inception of the enterprise. The difficulty has been, not in finding a suitable harbor, but to select from the
multitude with which tho coast of
British Columbia is indented, tho ono
offering tho greatest advantages. Port
Simpson, as the terminus of the Peace
Kiver route; Bute Inlet, from whence,
crossing to Vancouver Island, it waa
fiussiblu to connect it with tho main
and, and by an island railway convert
Victoria, tho capital of the provinco,
into iv great railway terminus; Now
Westminster, on the Fraser River, and
Burrard'a Inlet, have had their advocates. Eventually, by consent of both
political parties undor whose admin-
iBtratiou the construction af nn all-
Canadian transcontinental line was a
leading quostiun, the choice rested on
Burrard's Inlet, This decision was
confirmed in the contract made by the
government with the Canadian Pncitic
Railway Company fnr tho completion
and operation of the rond. Benching
tidal wnter at Port Moody, tho line is
carried down the length of tho Inlet
tu its western limit, Coal Harbor; passing over tho peninsula which separates
the inner waters from thoso of tlie
Straits of Georgia, the lino lerminntes
at English Buy, giving to tho railway
company tin outer harbor in addition
to tho laud-locked basin of Conl Harbor. English Bay is protected by tho
highlands forming tho eastern, northorn and southern shores,whilo a natural
breakwater, thu Spnnsh Hunk, extending over a milu from thuH.mthoru
short1, protects it from thu seas of thu
Straits. English Bay will permit of
the construction of a wharf front,
without slips, four mites in length,
protected from any sea thnt would interfere with ttio loading or unloading
of ships of all claisus. Both tlio inner and outer hnilti>rs possess advantages peculiarly tlieir uwn.
The tot-minus is reached from the
Paoifio Ocean by wny of tile Straits of
Georgia, Passing Cape Flattery; Victoria, at tint southern end of Vancouver Island; skirting thu Maud of
tho San Juan, fumed iu thn history of
international itrbilrntioiw, tlio course
is northerly for forty miles through an
iBlmid-d-.tliHl channel environed by tho
lofty mountains of Vancouver Island
aud thu main shore. Emerging from
Ihis labyrinth uf inlands, a run of
twenty*tivn union is mnde iicroas the
Straits. An introduction to Burrard's
inlet is had through thu water of
Ei-glish Hay. Thu peninsula separating the two is headed with a bold
rocky bluff of sandstone formation,
180 feot in height—Iho subject of our
illustration. From this bluff it is
possible with properly equipped forti*
ticntimia so to command English Bny
and tho Inlet as to render thom practically Impregnable. Sniling through
tho narrow entrance, whicli scarcely
exceeds 1,000 feet, skirting tho month
of Cnpnlnno Creek, a mountain stream
from which it is propositi tu supply
the city wiih waii-r, iho InlotIn-iresiea
lu wid' h until, pnnaing llrncktmi Point,
ono mile from tho gato, it expands to
a width uf two and oue half miles.
Froni tliis point an average width of a
milu is maintained, witli depth of
water sufficient to float the largest
abips wil bin a few hundred feet of
cither shore, up to Purl Moody, a distance of twelve miles. The land bordering tho shores of Coal Harbor and
English Bay, on which Vancouver,
the terminal city, is now being surveyed, extends back iu ensy grade for
throo miles to the height of land between the Fraser River and Burrnrd's
Inlet: Hub in marked variance to that
ou the northern shore, whore the
mountains approach close to tho sea-
line. This'disposition of ground gives
a sito favorable in itself for the futuro
growth of tho city, whilst possessing
uu outlook on mountain scenery that
will form ono of its chief at tract ions.
Tho main industry of the place as it
stands at present jb in tho manufacturing of lumber and spars for foreign markets. Tho shores abound in
a wealth of timber, enortnoua in size,
some of tho trees measured at the
clenriug of tho town-site girthing over
thirty-three feot.

tho North Arm of Burrard's Inlet and
Howo Sound. Theso fjordB piorco the
mountain chain lying to tho north of
tlio term in us, tho former to u distance
of tweh-i* miles, the latter over thirty.
Lying close at hand, within an hour's
steaming, they will form thu recreation
ground for the future dwellers of
l^uncnuve* and its visitors. Thero is
a groHdeur iu the scenery that even in
tliis picturesque part of thu world is
rarely met with. Purple aud reddish-
brown mumlaina, thoir sombre color
picked out with thc brilliant tints of
moss, nrbutus shrubbery nud heather,
rise in sheer precipitous forms from
the deep waters they outline. Beyond
these warm-tinted rock masses lie the
colder grays and blues of the lofty,
snow-crowned peaks, rising bo high
that at times it is impossible to tell
where mountain ends and cloud bo-
gins. This cloud • capped, shifting
chiaio-oscuro, an endless variety of rock
and mountain forms, with the varied
styles of waterfalls by which the
mountain streams leap into the sea,
make the above—the horizon scene-
throb with seeming life, while the
calm, transparent, seo, with its unbroken reflection of mountains and
forest, presents a restful contrast altogether enjoyable. Islands that are
worthy of u Bpecial look, owing to
their unique formation, are Auvre and
Gambler, Howo Sound, and Jug Island,
in the North Arm. Tho mountains
contiguous to both these sheets of
water havo long been favorite hunting-
grounds for the Indians and the few
white hunters living in the locality,
the sport possessing the greatest fascination on account of its attending
dangers in hunting thc mountain sheep
nud bear. These can be renchod by
climbing almost nny of tho mountain
peaks in the vicinity. Deer, duck,
aud various kinds of grouse afford
splendid sport to the less ambitious
hunter. Fresh-water fishing is con-
fiuod to the brack nnd mountain trout,
thu mvlmon, witli which the rivers
swarm, rarely rising to a fly.
When it is considered that the scenery
—wliich is at bost but feebly illus
(rated horo—enn be viewed under the
most favorablo circumstances of climate (summer weather lasting from
tho first of March until November),
there ought to be sufficient ro entice
thoso wearied of the old tourist-haunts
tn pay a visit to this charming region.
The early summer ia preferable to
August, on account uf the smoke from
the forest fires wliich prevail during
the latter month. This season, March
and April were aa perfect months as
could lie wished for, and might aptly
be describod as mnde up of "days of
cloudless beauty, hoar frost and summer glow."

Toronto Exhibition.
THE DOMINION PIANO & ORGAN CO.
Speaking of the great central exhibi-
bition opened at Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe sayB:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on tite
grounds cannot escape tlie attention .of
the most casual and careless observer, is
tite pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company. This is a separate building but a
little distance from the south cast of tbe
Main Building. This pavilion must be
about 50 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway nil around it extra. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glnss section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
nnd announces to all in broad letters tlmt
it is the pavilion of that company, and
that Joseph Ruse, of 08 Kinq-street
West, represents the company. Inside
no pains nave been spared to make it attractive, nnd certainly its designs hnve
succeeded. No one should visit thc Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he will tind a tittle paradise
of music. Here are decorations, hnnd*
some pictures of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ruse, and above all, pianos nnd organs
of tho most nrtistic nnd unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
.indeed, and a splendid trihuto to the
genius and skill of uur Canadian manufacturers. Pianos nnd organs of every
style and artistic design are found here
—a parlor grand, squares, antl uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with wnlnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut. A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces tlie visitor nt tho extreme
end as he cntere Hub pavilion. For company are orgnns of every style and design to suit the purchaser. The Company also exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit tho fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Grand
National Exhibition held there the Compnny had just carried off the first prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
Tliis is certainly remarkable, though
when tho rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not so remarkable as at first might seem.
The Company's success iu honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. Tho exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized tho high compliment ho paid
the Dominion Organ nnd Piano Company
at the opening of ttie London Fair. In
liis address from tho platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great Impetus Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, tic referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp international
Exhibition, Belgium, nud cited ns an illustration of tho wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of tho
Dominion Organ aud Piano Company
there. He said that ttiis Company (the
Dominion Organ and Piano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over alt other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and ac<-uireiiicnts in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest and best
musicians, liad declared further that the
instruments of this company were superior to uny they had ever seen, heard, or
examined. Witli suctt a compliment
from such a .source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content,

Wall Slreel Bears,
Brokers and operators are "bears"
when they havo sold stock, and particularly stock that thoy did not own,
contracting to deliver it ntsoino futuro
timo. They aro then "short in the
market." The disposition of the bear
is tu pull things down. The Wall
Stroet bear* is often found "gunning a
stock" by putting forth all his strength
and craft to break down the price, nnd
especially when aware that a house is
heavily loaded and can not resist his
attack. He "buys in" by purchasing
stock to meet a "short" contract, or to
return borrowed stock; "covers" or
"covers hts shorts," by buying stock
to fulfil hiB contract on tho day of delivery. This is a self-protective measure, and is called "covering short
Bales." A "drop" in the prico of a
stock is to a bear the noxt beat thing
to a "break." Ho rejoices in an "off1'
market when prices fall. Ho "soils
out" a man by forcing down tho price
of a stock that the person is carrying
so low that ho is obliged to let it go,
and perhaps to fail. Ho groans lustily
when the bulls get a "twist ou tho
shorts" by artificially raising prices,
und "squeezing," or compelling the
bears to settle at ruinous rates.
Neither "bull" nor "boar" is an altogether safo "critter." Tho latter,
however, is reputed to be about four
times as mischievous as the former,
inasmuch as ho rudely sells another
man's property, whereas the bull contents himself with carrying liis own.
The bear occasionally finds himself
in a "corner," whore it is impossible
to buy the stock of which ho is "short,"
and which he must deliver at a specified time. Ho growls and begs, but
must pay what tho holders of his contracts are willing to accept. Sumo relief is afforded by a "lot up," or the
withdrawal from tho market of tho
"clique," or "pool," or combination tif
operators that cornered him. A
"squeal in the pool" is the revelation
of its secrets by one of its members,
and a "leak in the pool" is when one
of the parties sells out his interest
without the knowledge of the others.
Either form of defection yields some
mitigation to tho bear's sufferings.
The  technology of tho stock exchange is too large for full quotation.
"Conversions" are the exchanges of
bonds for equivalent shares of stock,
such   bonds  being called "convertibles."    "Collaterals" are securities of
any kind pledged for borrowed money.
Pledging them is termed "hypothecation.      A "good delivery" is of oer-
tilicates  of  stock   or bonds  legally
issued, bearing satisfactory powor of
attorney on the back or appended, and
transferred agreeably to the laws of
the exchange.    A "bad delivery" is
tho opposite, and involves the right of
appeal to the committee on securities,
and thonee to the governors.    "Differences" aro money balances paid where
stock is not transferred—which seldom
happens.    Tu loud "tint" means without interest.    To "water" atock is to
increase its quantity and impair its
quality.   To "pass a dividend" is not
to pay  it.     There aro other Blang
phrases used iu connection  with the
business of stock privileges, which is
not "recognized" by or done publicly
at the exchange.   Privileges to receive
or to deliver securities are bought and
sold outside the institution.   Russell
Sago  is the  king operator in these
peculiar transactions.     Stock privileges are "puts" and "calls," or combinations uf both. A "put" iB tho privilege of putting or selling to the one who
sells it a certain quantity of u specified
stock at a designated.price within a fixed
time.   A   "call"  is the privilege of
calling for or buying a certain Btock
at  a  specified  price within a given
time.   The seller of the put must be
ready to buy, and of the call to sell
whenever called upon.   A "straddle'
is the option of cither buying or selling;
it combines the put antl call in one,
and differs from the "spread" in thut
the market price at the time of purchase is filled into the latter, while in
the  "straddle"  the price may vary
from that of the market, by agreement
or otherwise.   Tho cost of stock privileges varies with the length of time
they have to run, the differences between the prices named in thom from
those current on the day tho privileges are sold, the activity of the market, and other conditions, and is from
one per cent, to throe per cent, of the
amount involved,   Exports uffrm that
they have u duplex character—thnt of
policies of insurance aud that of tick9
ets in a lottery.   In exceptional cases
unly are thoy means of profit to uny
but those who issue them.   Even the
latter-—with   the   exception   of  tho
shrewd operator uow so conspicuous in
the business, aud possibly not even of
him—are likely to como to grief, as
thc large majority of their predecessor have done.   Thc gain of the holder  is  dependent, first, on favorable
torus in tho market, und next, on bis
ability  and  promptness  in  utilizing
them.     Keen   intellect,   prevision,
nerve,    watchfulness,    and    tigerish
spring at opportunity must unite to
prevent the Iubs of what is invested in
thom.   "Don't," is the best advice to
those  who seek ndvice about fouling
with thein.— Harper's Magazine, '

there was no sail lu thu boat, aud thoro
was nu boat either, for that matter.
The squirrel was seated high and dry
ou a piece of bark and another squirrel was swimming behind and steadily
pushing the barque (as the deacon
calls it). Whether tho furry passenger was timid, or merely lazy, I cannot say, biit prubably alio was tho
mothor of tho family aud sho was used
to being waited upon.—From "Jack-

uirrel did?
"Sho invented a boat to carry her
babies in. At all events, a gentleman writing to a paper called tho
Toledo lilade says he saw her do it,
and I believo liim, for even animal
mothers will do wonderful things when
their babies nre in question.
"Thoy were on their way to n now
part of the country in Ohio, and in
the course of tlieir travels camo to a
creek. Mother -squirrel tried to induce the babies to swim across the
stream, but—bless their little hearts!
—they wero afraid, aud could nut
pluck up courage even with mother to
help I hem,
"The squirrel mothor was very
much distressed at this, und for a few
moments seemed at a loss what to do,
Thero was the creek, and it must bo
crossed. Pretty soon a bright idea
struck her, and she ran briskly up and
down the bank of tho stream until sho
found u piece of wood about a foot
long and half a foot wide.
"Sho dragged that to the edge of
tho stream and pushed it into the
water until only tlie ond of the piece
uf wood rested lightly on the bank.
"Then aho coaxed tho babies to
walk out on the littlo bout. They
stepped un board very timidly and
snuggled closely together, Thc littlo
mother then pushed the boat iuto tho
stream nnd taking hold of it with her
tooth, swam behind it until it touched
the opposito bank, when the babies
scampered nimbly ashore, delighted
to know that their mother was placidly
following them."

How Oracle Closed a Saloon.
Gracie wub only six years old, but
benutiful and loving. Whon hor father
wanted her to come into his saloon,
that ho might introduce her to tho men
lounging there, and hear them praise
her beauty, sho would say, "No, papa;
mako the naughty men go away, and
then I'll come in."
Thore waa a children's temperance
society in tho town, in charge of tho
Woman's Temperance Union, and little
.Gracio and her brother, still younger,
were invited to attend. Tho father
co»aeuted. for ho liked to soo Gracio
dressed, and lmvo people notice her.
Gracie had nover Been any ono pray
before) ind when tho lender talked
about God, aud naked them all to bow
their heads while ho prayed, Gracie
bowed, awed into the most solemn
rovorence.
Mouths passed. Gracio had learned
to pray, and often talked to her father
about tho Christ child, aud wanted
him to pray; but he only laughed and
called her his little saint. One day
Gracio was taken very ill; tho doctor
was sent for, and when he saw her he
said she was very sick.
"Will I die?"
"I hopo uot."
"You needn't bo afraid to tell mo,
'cause I'm ready; I asked Jesus to
take me if he wanted me."
Tiio father, who stood at the fout of
tho bod, Bobbed out, "0, Gracio! you
don't want to leave your papa, do
you ?"
"Yes, I do, if Jesus wants mo to
come, 'cause ho has the best right to
me."
Tho customers came and wont, but
the saloon-keeper heeded them not;
fur his little Gracio was on her little
bod panting Iier lifo away. What cared
he for money, now that tho light of
his life was going out?"
One day, on his coming up out of
tho saloon, Gracio opened her eyes,
and turning upon him an imploring
look, said, "0, papa, is tho Baloon
opon'/ Are tho men drinking? Do close
it, papa, I know I will feol better if
you will."
"I'll do it darling—anything to make
yuu feel better."
The saloon-keeper's heart was almost
breaking. The bar-tender was ordered
to clear the saloon and close the dours.
"Darling, tho saloon is closed," he
snid, bonding over hur a few minutes
later.
"Thank  you, papa; it makes me
happy and better already," and a glad
smilo camo ovor tho suffering face.
Every few hours Gracio would ask:
"Is the Baloon closed now ?"
"Yes, darling."
"Are the shutters up?"
"Yes, dear, thoy aro up."
"0, papa, I wish you'd nevor open
tho saloon again.   Mamma, can't you
get pupa to promise me novor to open
tho saloon again!"
"0, George, do promise your dying
ohild," sobbed the mother, who had
never favored her husband's business.
The strong man shook like a reed.
Ho could not speak for a moment;
then coining and bending ovor her he
said in a strange and husky voice:
"My darling Grace, papa will never
opon tho saloon again."
"0, papa, I'm so glad! I'll tell
Jobus whon I got to heaven, that you
have closed the saloon. And now,
dear papa, you must bo good, nnd ho'll
let you como to the beautiful home,
too; and mamma and Alice can come,"
There was a glad smile on tho dying
child's faco, that soon fadod out intu
lines of pam; but nll at onco, just at
the last, hur face brightened up with a
strange, unearthly brightness, und she
cried out joyfully:
0, mammn, look, lookl tho room
is full of angels. Papa, don't you soe
them ? They are all about you."
There wiib a hush in the room, for
tho gates of heaven were thrown open
to let thc pure spirit pass through.
Only tho body of little Gracie wns left
—the real Gracie had gone to live with
Jesus nnd hia angels. Tho father
never opened tho saloon. The saloonkeeper has not only signed Ihe pledge,
but hns become a Christian and expects to follow his Gracie to heaven
aftor a while,—Vermont Christian Beg-
ister.
How the President Receives.
He does not sit in stately style at
the head of the cabinet-table iu the
cabinet-room, as did Rutherford It.
Huyes, hut standing in the oval library-
room, he receives Iub callers as any
gentleman might, He does not stand
quite still, as Arthur used to do at the
end of tho room, nnd all the people
present passing in procession before
liim; but tho callers having been arranged around the walls to tho full
capacity of the big red-leather chairs
and sofas, ho walks around from right
to left, shaking hands with each caller
and listening to what he has to any as
loug ns patience ia a virtue. At 11
o'clock Col. Looflior, his gray-hairod
doorkeeper, ushers in tho lirst batch
of callers, promptly shutting oft the
stream when the oval of peoplo is
complete. The president, who has
been at his broad oakoii desk there in
tho big how-window ever since !>
o'clock, rises und addresses tlia first
caller on his right. So ho goes around
tho room. As fast as it is omptied'it
is filled again, until I o'clock, when
tho doors are cloBod for tho day.—
