Nanaimo Protests.
The good people of Nanaimo seem
to liavo caught hold of the idea
lately that thoy would do something
to make themselves notorious. IJsib
aIly"Kahaifuo is a quiet.and peaceable town, und does not give much
outward manifestation of its particular opinion, But its war paint haa
been put on liberally, and it seems
bound to make a fuss with somebody.
Sot long ago some special police
officers were sent from Victoria to
Nanaimo. ind the superintendent of
police for the province went with
thein. Tbe people of Nanaimo
warmly resented thia movement,
und called a public meeting for tbe
purpose of placing on record their
emphatic protest. The meeting was
very large, and the report of the
proceedings published in the Free
Press leaves no doubt but considerable enthusiasm and excitement
were manifested .by at least some of
thaw present Somo of the speeches
wore excited. They abounded in
statements which calm reflection
oust have pronounced unfounded
and uncalled for. It was explained
by Hr. Kaybould, one of the local
representatives for Nanuimo, that
this police business was nothing
more than a private matter. Mr.
Dunsmuir has a, great deal of valuable property about Nanaimo, and
since the trouble between himself
and the striking miners has grown
serious he began to entertain a suspicion that his property might be-
' come a pray to the d'suO'ec'cd men.
At his own instance, and at his own
expense, he had some special constables sworn in aud sent up to protect his property in case it should
- bo attacked. At liis request the
attorney-general allowed the superintendent of police to accompany
these men, but on the distinct understanding that all expenses should
be paid by Mr. Dunsmuir. Now,
thero may: have been no substantial
grounds for Mr, Dunsmuir's fears,
and the course he adapted may have
been unwise., Of that we 'know
nothing, and pronounce no opinion.
But ths meeting, with the full explanation of the circumstances before it, proceeded to pass censure upon
the provincial government I The
special constables did not belong to
the government. They were simply
persons hired liy Mr. Dunsmuir to
guard his property, and invested
with constabulary powers so as to
enable them to aot effectively if ro-
quired. The only matter in which
the government could be made re-
sponsible was in permitting tbe
presence of the police superintendent. The premier emphatically
declared that the superintendent
had not been sent with the knowledge of himself or tbo cabinet. It
would mm, therefore, that the attorney-general had taken upon himself tlio responsibility of doing this
without consulting hia colleagues.
It may fairly be open to question
whether the circumstances were
sufficient to justify the interference
of tbe provincial police at all, but
if then waa any improper action
tha attorney-genera! .alone was responsible for it. But the meeting
wu bound to censure somebody, and
It praanxled to censure tbe government, We must aay that such a
proceeding ia boyond defense. But
another meeting was called last
week to discuss tbe island railway
bill, and political issues generally.
The person who called this meeting
is a squatter, and his principal desire
seemed to be to censure the government and the representatives because they gave away the public
lands without making adequate provisions for the protection of squatters. Now, thia ia just one of the
things which the settlement bill does
carefully protect, ami the ostensible
motive of this aquuttor could hardly
be his rial ol.jrct iu promoting the
meeting, The same observation
applies with equal force- to the meeting called on account of the special
police. There can never In' un effect
without a cause. There ure certain
persona in Nuiiuuno, we are told,
who believe it would W a.line thing
to air their eloquence in parliament
.But aa the constituencies are all
fully represented already they And

themselves in the position of Abraham Lincoln's peg8tfor which no
holes could be fouhJ. Tbey want
to make the holes, fiy means of a
publio agitation, aidefc by a number
of malcontents who.are roady for
any new development, these political wire-pullers hope to bring about
the resignation of their {resent representatives, or an appeal to the
people, which would open the doors
of the legislature to themselves,
We believe tbis will be found *o constitute the milk of ths cocoanut,
The last meeting resulted in nothing,
however, as no js—dajjnn was put.
It may beljiat tlie Agitators havo
permitted themselves to go beyond
the region of forbearance, and they
find the sensible people of Nanaimo
will not lend themselves to the
accomplishment of their selfish purposes.
The people of this country havo spoken. -They declare by thoir patronage of
Dr. Thomas' Eclectrio Oil, that they be-

and dislocations, external injuries, coma,

For the Columbian.]
Tho Norseman's Death Song,
Oli! tbe joy of the combat,
The delight of my soul,
When the war-hones nro singing,
The battle blades ringing,
And far overhead
The thick dust clouds roll.
Then Odin is watching,
And thoy, the fair maids,
The Valkyrs are winging
Whew the war-songs are bulging
And choosiuo; the dead
Mid the clash of the bladas.
Tbe eyes darting lightning,
lhe sword swinging nigh,
The battle axe clanging;
Then comes the home ganging,
For the Valkyrs have ehosen
And 'tis joyous to die.
All hail yo Valkyries I
Witti Joy will I go,
For much would I rathor
Greet Odin Alfather
Than dwell on the frozen
Plains here below,
i
Tho Scalds in their saga
Shall sing of my death,
While high In Valhalla,
With heroes whose valor
Is told in famed story, ■__
Shall I mingle iny'bntoth.
And tho bowl shall be flowing,
And tbe hunt shall be high,
Till Knyuarok breatheth.
And my soul again taketb
Its sword for the glory
Of Odin to die.

A JvdQ'S's TaflTMONY.—At the recent session of the Durham, England,
Assizes, Justice Hawkins, in his charge
to the Grnud Jury said :—" He had
had considerable experience in courts
uf law, and every day he lived the more
firmly como to the conclusion that tha
rout of almost all crimo waa drink. It
affected people of all agea and both
sexes. It wak drink whioh was the incentive to crime of dishonesty, and a
man stole in order that he might gat
the means to get drunk. It was drink
whioh enusedhomes to be impoverished,
and they could trace to ita source the
cause of misery which was to be found
in io many cottage homes where the
common necessities uf life woro want*
ing. Ha believed lhat the nine-tenths
of the, crimo of this country, and certainly of the county of Durham, wob
engendered in public-houses. When
he same to that conclusion he considered it was his duly to enjoin upon tlie
magistrates, who had the power in some
respect tu check the terrible ravages of
drink, to do their utmost to suppress it
with all their power and authority with
which the law invested them. Tlie
county of Durham waa tho one county
iu all England whero crimes were most
prevalent. This spoke volumes; and
having drawn tho attention uf the jiry
to it, he would make no further allusion
to the subject,"  .
A New Ttaci'HONE.—The Pal! Mall
Ga:ette describes n now telephone
which Arthur St. George, an English
inventor hns just patented. Supple*
mentary to the telephone itself is a con*
trivance whioh will, it is stated, not
only record every deucripition of con*
venation carried on through the inslru-
nient, but will re-prodtico the words at
any future time, A circular plato of
glass is coated wiih collodion and mado
sensitive naa photographic plate. This
Is placed in a dark box in which is a
slit to admit a ray of light, Iu front
uf the glass Ia the telephone diaphhun,
which by iis vibrations, opens and
closes a small shutter, through which a
benin of light is constantly pnssiugutnd
imprinting a dark lino on tho gjlasi.
Vibrations of the sliuticr can bu tho
dark line to vary iu thickness noun-ding
to the tones of the voico. The glass
plate revolves like clock work, and tliu
conversation ns it loaves tho tuloph?no,
is recorded on the sonnitive plate, tho
words spoken being fixed us is done in
photography. The pla:e can be brought
forward afterward, npd when replaced
in the mauhiuu and coimeuted with a
distant telephone will, when set in
motion, givo back tho original conversation.
Mr. K. 0. Winlow, Toronto, writes:
"Northrop ft; Lyman's Vegetable Discovery is a valuable medicino to all who are
troubled with Indigestion. I tried a bottle of it aftor suffering for somo ten
years, and tho results ara cortainly bo*
yond my expectations. It assists digestion wonderfully, I digest my food with
no apparent effort, and am now entirely
free, from that sensation, which every
dyspeptic well knows, of unpleasant
fulness after each meal,"

The King of Spain was recently
insulted by a Fronoh rabble, and
France has not apologized enough to
satisfy the haughty Spaniards.
From this insignificant circumstance
serious complications may arise.
Spain iB too proud to receive insult
with impunity, and Franco is too
impetuous to reflect upon results
The relations between the two countries at this moment are exceedingly
strained, and it is feai ed satisfaction
may be demanded ut the point of
the bayonet. Tn a single-handed
contest Spain would bo no mutch for
France; but would Spain be alone 9
Germany is thirsting for a row with
her old enemy, and this may be her
opportunity.
A Vast Revenue.
The United States governmolit
are just now accumulating surplusses at such an enormous rato that
it seems difficult to discover ways
and means for the application of
them. The bonds available for
redemption have nearly all been
.-purchased. When the balance of
the 3 per cents, has been redeemed,
there will be no more bonds which
the government can recall until 1891.
At present the pros, ects are that
these 3 per cents, will be exhausted
in three years or less. The accumulating surplusses cannot be applied
to the reduction of tbe public debt
for nearly 7 years. The usual annual
surplus amounts to over $100,000,-
000, and in 1891 the treasury may
contain $700,000,000 surplus. This
is a magnificent financial exhibit;
but people ale beginning to ask why
the producers and consumers should
he taxed so enormously to fill the
treasury with useless gold. The
revenue comes out of the people's
pockets, und tho people's pockets
will not stand the constant drain
without grumbling. The high customs ditties have pressed heavily
upon the people of the United
States, and we should not wonder if
the agitation which has been steadily
growing      may      soon     find   ifcaelf
Strong enough to bring about a substantial reduction in the tariff. The
same process is found in Canada,
but on a smaller scale. We are
burdened with heavy taxes, while
the treasury every year shows a
substantial surplus. It is time the
governments of Cacada and the
United States were considering the
propriety of adjusting tbo taxes so
that surplusses shall disappear.
Tbe Dark Continent.
The brilliant expedition of Mr.
Stanley, the discoverer of Livingstone, directed the eyes of all the
world to Africa, and awakened an
interest in that country which has
never since died out. Later explorations proved that tha interior
of the dark continent was by no
means wanting in resources and'
attractions, and several nations have
beeu looking with covetous eyes
upon the wealth of the newly found,
region.. Not long ago wo mentioned
the success which hail attended
Stanley's most recent attempts to
establish commercial relations between interior Africa and Europe,
and the counter efforts of the
French in the same direotion. In
* a late issue the Globe states that the
attempt of De Brazza to gain for
France A political foothold on the
Congo has utterly failed. Stanley,
the energetic explorer of the river
and the discoverer of the greater
part of it, is actively pioneering for
science, trade, and religion, while
De Brazza with a handful of sickly
men ia forced to stand idly by and
see the efforts of the International
Association crowned with complete
success An immense trade with
the interior has already sprung up,
the imports of English manufactures
alone amounting now to three millions a year. These are carried up
tha Congo to Vivi, 120 miles from
its mouth, in ocean steamers of the
largest class. The river is navigable
tome distance further, and (hen the
celebrated Yellala Falls are passed
by a road 100 miles long, over
which three steamers for use on the
Upper Cong* have been transported
in sections to Stanley Pool. From
this poiot they can navigate the
river without interruption for 800
miles, opening up illimitable opportunities) (or the exercise of commercial enterprise, scientific ardor, and
missionary seal. Whatever opportunity France may once have had
•f wising the gateway of the valley
•f thii great river, it has com.
pletely vanished, It is as jet no
Ban's land politiotdly, the Interna
tional Association being under Belgian auspices. There is absolutely
free trade with the natives, and it
is safe to say that so long aa this
state of affairs continues the bulk
of the trading will be done by British merchants in British vessels
It is equally safe to say that Great
Britain iB not likely now to recognise any pretensions to ownership of
land which holds out such excellent opportunities for profitable
trade, and that all her influence will
be exercised with a view to keep up
the present free and easy arrangement. Probably the first thing to
break it up will be a violent outburst on the part of souie hostile or
treacherous tribe, and the sending
in of troops to ensure the safety of
British residents, after the manner
of the Egyptian occupation.

Tub Concert*),—The concert in the
Skating Rink last Wednesday night
was a vory marked buccbbs, Tho houso
was probably tho largest evor assembled iu this city. There were about
300 people presont. In some respects
the programme was excellent, but
thero wero also many defeoti obBor-
vable. Among the best numbers were
tho "Lost Ship," by Messrs. DeBeck;
and Henderson; the two solos by
Mrs. D. Robson; tho medley by
Messrs. DeBeck, Morey, Pearson, and
Henderson; the recitation, "How ho
Saved St, Michaels," by Rev. Mr.
Dowler;. the solos by Mrs. Secoombo;
and the instrumental music hy Miss
Clute, Prof. Francis and Mr. Morey.
The instrumental trio was really
charming. The concert on Thursday
night, in aid of the Royal Columbian
Hospital, was also very successful,
and the audience numbered over 250.
The principal attractions at this concert wore the solos sung by Mrs,
Sillitoe, Mrs. Moresby and Mr. Keary.
Mr. Keary's songB^ere both in character and took immensely. Tho instrumental music by the amateur orchestra was in some respects woll
renndorod, but the instruments were
not in chord and tho parts not ns well
balanced as one could have wished.
There is good material fu the orchestra, however, and we hope to see these
im perfections disappear with practice.
Tho first conoert was in aid of the
Methodist church, and the gross proceeds amounted to 8157.50 (50 cts. a
ticket). The second Was in aid of the
hospital, and ruulted in about (861

Onr Farming Lands.
Before the immigration mid colonization committee, which Bat at
Ottawa last May, Prof, Macoun was
asked his opinion of the Agricultural
resources of British" Columbia. He
said: " Since 18751 have not been in
British Columbia, but thero are two
tracts of British Columbia.—the lower
valley of the Frasor, is a good agricultural reigon as regards to stock raising
and farming, especially in regard to the
manufaoture of butter and cheese,
because vegetation is wonderfully lux.
uriant and there ia no winter. Thon,
above the Cascades,,on the Thompson,
from Spences* Bridgo to Kamloops,
there will be a splendid reigon for
wheat growing, but it will hnvo- to be
irrigated. Only bunch gross grows
there, and very littlo of that. . In the
valleys in the southern part of British
Columbia—Similkameen and the Kootenay and through there,—when the
railway is built thero and men go in,
thero will be farming, and especially
stock—farming. Great quantities of
cattle can be raised there and kept
without any trouble. From Caene
Creek up the Fraser as far as Quesnello
I have seen wheat growing whero the
ground was suitable, but there aro no
continuous atretohes of agricultural
lands in British Columbia except those
two—tho valloy of the Lowor Fraser,
and the country betweon Spenco's
Bridge and Kamloops. in the upper
country. Thoy constitute tho continuous agricultural lands of the country, but that there aro lots of first-class
land scattered in patches throughout
the country there is no doubt, immense
quantities of pasture lands. In British Columbia, the timber grows largely
from 1,000 ft. to 2,000 ft. above the
plain, on the mountain tops, and the
slopes aro |all covered with fine grass,
which extends up amongst the trees."
The Provincial Exhibition.
THE FIRST SHOW ON THE MAINLAND.
In our last issuo we published a description of the agricultural grounds
and buildings. There iB nothing to be
added to that description, but it may
be remarked that everyone was greatly
pleased at the beauty of the site selected and the excellent accommodation
afforded. Wednesday was n beautiful
day, clear and bright, and admirably
adapted for exhibition purposes. It
was quite late in tho forenoon boforo
the committee of management could
get the articles all properly placed and
ticketed. Then the .judges hod the
premises to themselves for several
hours before visitors were admitted.
About 3 o'clock the gates were opened,
and shortly afterwards it was announced tliat the exhibition would be
formally opened by the Hon. Wm,
Smithe, who was present.'
the premier's address.
Hon, Mr. Smitho stood upon the
steps of tho agricultural hall and said
that it afforded 1dm much pleasure to
bo present and tako pott in tho opening- of tho first provincial exhibition
hold on tho mainland of British Columbia, and he liad to congratulate tho
peoplo on tho fine display thoy haa
made. Considering the great drought
which liad prevailed during the pau
season ho thought it waa quiti^pxtrii-
ordinary. Ho was reminded of a remark mado by Mr. Alexander, a gentleman from Ontario who had recently
visited this country, Mr. Alexander
said thero had not been a drop of rain
during, his stay in the provinco. In
any other country such a drought
would have destroyed* the crops, but in
British Columbia ho found green field*
aud every indication of an excellent
harvest. But while this exhibition had
brought together articles of excellent
quality, ho must 'say thero was ti lock
in quantity. Ho believed a mistake
had been committed by the directors
in charging an eutranco foe for overy
exhibit. Tho charges should bo for
membership, and ono entrance- feo
should entitle a person to enter as
many articles as ho chose, Tho present
arrangement tended directly to limit
the number of exhibits and detract
from the success and usefulness of tlio
show. He hod boon informed that persons who brought stuff for exhibition
refused to enter, because they saw
other articles botter than theirs and
they would not pay the entrance fee
unless they wero assured of obtaining
Kizes. t Ho .hoped this mistake would
rectified at subsequent exhibitions,
and that poople would bo encouraged
to bring all they could,   The exhibi
tion had been opened undor very favorable circumstances. The weather was
exceedingly fine, and the grounds and
buildings woro moBt creditablo. Speaking of the building he waa reminded
that at the close of this exhibition it
would be used for other purposes thau
tliat of an agricultural hall—it was to
bo an immigrant's homo. He was very
glad that immigrants were coming to
this province in considerable numbers
and taking up land. Ho had been informed by the immigrant agent in this
city that GOO men bad taken up land
in New Westminster district this season. Tliis was a most important item.
It meant 600 more families to subdue
and bring under cultivation the JujcIb
of the province, and h< ip stop ihe drain
of money going out for foreign produce.
He hoped the number next year would
bo 1600- instead of 000. He had grant
pleasure now in declaring tho exhibition open.
OUTSIDE show./
Compared with tho exhibition at Victoria last year tho show of animals is
considerably less in quantity, but somo
of the animals aro of excellent quality.
Mr. J. D. Pemberton and Mr. a. Son-
dovor showed two fine bulls, .which took
first prizes. Mr. Pemberton also had
some fine cattle. Mr. G. B. Murray
took first prize for his cow and second
prize for the heifer, Mr. Pemberton
also snowed his fine Clydesdale stallion, which took a firat prize, as did
also the stallion for buggy shown by
Mr. Wm. Turgoose. There were vory
fow sheep, but the ram showed by Mr.
Shopfand is probably the finest on the
Pacific coast, He is a Leicester, raised
at Victoria from imported stock, and
weighs 300 lbs. Mr. Shopland also
shows 5 fine Southdown lambs. Mr.
Wells took a 1st prizo for his ram, and
Mr. J. McKoo's ewes carried off similar
honors. The exhibit of fowls was very
good, although small. Thero were
some fine leghorns shown by Dr. Trew,
and a pair of beautiful geese by Mr.
Handover. Messrs. Johnston & Smith,
of the Pacific Carriage works in this
city, showed 2 very nice buggies, one
made by themselves and the other imported,
THE INSIDE SHOW.
Tlie inside show is pronounced by
evory one to be tho best ovor seen in
British Columbia, The grains shown
embraced a large variety and superior
quality, whieh would be creditable to
any provinco in the Dominion. Thero
wero fall and spring wheat, peas, oats,
barley, buckwheat, and other cereals.
The collection of potatoes and roots
was large and magnificent. There were
potatoes weighing over 4 lbs., turnips
that would not go inside of a patent
pail, squashes measuring over 4 feet in
circumference, and beets that could not
bo beat. The cabbage were very largo
and fine, and so were tho onions and
carrots and tomatoes. Tho display of
buttor was excellent, as well as the
broad and cheese. Mr. Ferris showed
some beautiful honoy in comb, for
which ho took first prize. In fancy
articles tho exhibit did "great credit to
tho ladies of British Columbia, and
especially of tliis city. . There were
many articles of this description shown,
and some of moro than ordinary merit.
Miss Madeline Webster, Mrs. Webster,
Mrs. R. Stevenson (Chilliwhack), Mrs.
and Miss Howay, Mies Philips, Miss
Woods, Mrs. W. H. Smith, and others
made fino exhibits in tliis department.
Miss Webster showed a very tastefully
arranged caso of ferns which was much
admired, Mrs. Major, Miss Clarkson,
Miss Mildred Major, and Miss Cushing
showed together a very nico collection
of fancy and needle work. Mrs. R.
Stevenson (Chilliwhack) showed some
beautiful wax work and a patch-work
quilt which took first prizo. Mrs. Jos.
Wintemute showed a white quilt which
won the prizo, and several other samples of needle work. Mrs. Bunte showed
two very handsome wreathes of leaves,
Mrs. Wintemute a beautiful feather
wreath, and Mrs. Strang a wreath of
hair work. Mrs. Tolmie and ihe
Misses Howay. also showed beautiful wreaths. There was a good
display of manufactured articlos.
Messrs. Kurtz & Co.'s beautiful cose of
citrarsjand cigarettes attracted great attention and added much to the exhibition. Mr. Maynard showed a fine
collection of photos. Messrs. Bagnall
and Keary had a side room filled with
various musical instruments and'fancy
goods. The Belmont Tanning Co. had
a fine display of leather and boots and
shoes, which occupied an entire room.
Messrs. Mansill and Maynard had each
a case of fine boots, shoes an slippers
whioh showed excellent workmanship
and taste. Mr. Rousseau, of this eity,
showed several pieces of leather made
at his own tannery) for whioh lie took
a prize. Messrs. E. S. Scoullar & Co.
oxhibited somo very handsome stoves
from their establishment, and tho Albion Iron Works (Victcria) had a room
full df stoves and grales of all kinds.
The finest display of manufactures was
that from the Royal City Planing Mills
of this city. It occupied a whole room,
and embraced a very great variety of
articles-—2 beautiful tables, brackets,
newel posts, doors, sashes, fish boxes,
and a large lot of fancy and useful articles in wood, beautifully turned and
finished. This collection was well
worth a careful examination and did
great oredit to the establishment. We
believe the most of the work was done
by Mr. M. Leavens, who is an accomplished turner and cabinet maker. Mr,
E. W. Swicord had a very creditable
display of gloves and uiits. Mossw.
Ewen & Co. and the Richmond Packing Co, eaoh showed canned salmon,
while Messrs, Kyle & Tilton showod a
pile of baking powder and a quantity
of cranberries. There was a display of
ale and porter from the Vancouver
Browing Co, which nearly nil disap-
Keared Wore tho exhibition closed.
Ir. O. M. McNaughton showed a case
of watohes and jewollery, and'Mr. S.
H. Webb, tho gunsmith, had a number
of firearms of various dimensions showing the progress which has heen mado
in the trado. Miss Parker had a small
case of bonutiful gold nuggets from lhe
Cariboo mines, and Mr. Erine Robson
showed a very good collection of minerals and fossils. There were several
other exhibit! worthy of note whicli
we must pass over. The attendance
of visitors was fairly good, and altogether the show must be pronounced a
success, We are sorry Mint it was not
possible to seouro the list of prizes yesterday. It will appear in ne-t issue,
when we shall take (occasion to point
out some things which wo think interfered to a considerable extent with the
success of the show, and whioh ought
to be remedied,

Columbus C. Johnston, printer and
champion amateur athlete, claims to

Allow me to say that this claim
appears absurd on the faco of it. It
must be generally admitted to be a
safe ■ proposition that several little
Siwashes saw tho light of day, within
the precincts of New Westminster city,
ere 0. C. Johnston's athletic form had

Boston, Oct. 10.—A letter from
Henry M. Stanley, dated July Uth,
at Stanley-pool, Congo river, has been
received by a personal friend in this
city. With regard to his sudden departure from Europe he explained the
cause as being sensational and exaggerated. A telegram was printed in the
English papers to the effect that one
of the stations had been attacked and
the chief the expedition badly wounded. The chief, who was heartily disliked, waB shot in the arm, but no
station' was attacked. It was the act
of leading men of the party, each of
whom desired to succeed tho chief.
Stanley t'-.nks the station can be supplied. The number of steamers and
boats hns been increased, and altogether
he considers everything moro encouraging. At Lopoldvillo there are two
missions of tho Baptist Church, and
at LivingBtono, on the 'Congo, tho
missionaries aro already putting up
imposing buildings. Stanley Bays:
"Since I arrived on Iho Congo last
December I have been up as far as
the equator and have established two
more stations, besides discovering another lake whieh I have explored for
100 miles or thereabouts. The resources of the country are truly wonderful. Tho rivor known on my map
us the Wetomber, but which is roally
Malundi, is not as large as stated in
iny book, but is about the size of the
Arkansas and is deep, broad and very
navigable The big stream which is
oxpected to drain the largest part of
tho South Congo basin must be some
where higher up. Having become
better acquainted with the country I
am roally struck with thq dense population of the equatorial part of the
basin, whioh, if, it wero uniform
throughout, would give this conntry
a population of ten. millions. Tho
number of the products and the character of tho people is likewise remarkable; rubber, ivory, camphor wood
and hosts of other things, and would
well repry transportation even by the
very expensive mode at present in
use. Tno peoplo are born traders,
and are, for Africans, very enterprising and industrious," Stanley tells
of his mediation'with tribes who wero
at war, and when at peaco (brought
about by his efforts) eloctcd him
"fathor and mother" of their country.

New Westminster, Sept. 25.—At 9
o'clock tho following morning our pariy,
procuring conveyances, were driven io
Port Moody, about five and one-naif
miles distant, the western terminus of
the Canadian Pacific R. R, It was
necessary to go in row boats about one
and one-half miles further, to be on ihe
actual running road. The party were
received by Mr, A. E, Hill, tho civil
engineer of ihis division. A ride over
the rails being proffered and accepted,
we were soon whirling along, the first
American excursion party over the rails
on this end of the line. After riding
a few miles wo returned and three
dieors were given for Port Moody and
tho western terminus of ihe Canadian
Pacific. They were responded to by the
railroad officials and the employees, and
our party returned to Port Moody.
This place iB near tho head of Burrard
Inlet, about twenty-five miles from the
Gulf of Georgia. The harbor is a very
fino one, as are also the docks and
wharves, the latter strongly built with
12 inch piling and six inch planking.
After partaking of refreshments and
making a general tour of inspection we
returned io New Westminster. During
tho day many prominent people of the
city called on board ihe boat, and were
hospitably entertained, and shown over
tho steamer, a great interest being taken
in the calliope. Many presents of fruits
and flowers were sent on board by
friends. During the day ex Governor
Ferry accompanied by several ladies
and gentlemen, called on Mayor Edmunds and were well received. At 3
o.ciock p. in. we bid adieu io Now
Westminster, and proceeded up the
Frnzer river. The scenery on the rivor
is much more grand above New Westminster than below it. The growth of
timber is larger and ihe scenery more
picturesque, Four miles above the city
we poos Pitt. river, where a mile or so
from its mouth is tho great railroad
bridge, tbe largest in British Columbia.
Intending to visit it on our return we
proceeded on our way. Some miles
further the first viow of the railroad is
obtained, the track running along the
left bank of the river for several miles
and then proceeding inland. A few
milea boyond on the right bank of the
river is the old town site of Derby,
located by Sir James Douglas, the Provincial Governor, in 1868. Nothing
remains of what might have been what
New. Westminster is now except a few
dilapidated mockeries. The latter place
was located in the same year by Col.
Moody and being nearer to Victoria and
tide water, .the site up the river was
abandoned. Beyond is Langley, where
the .boats plying on the river receive
and discharge their freight. No town
can be seen, from ihe river, but quite
a settlement has sprung up in the
prairie country back from iho river,
extending for a distance of twenty-
five miles to Semiahmoo City, Passing
the mouth of Stave river, over which a
railroad bridge can be soon nearly 600
feet in length, we came to anchor in
the stream, being about twenty-five
miles above New Westminster, During lhe evoning a passenger steamer
between Yale and New Westminster
passed us, the steam calliope playing
several selections, and a blowing of
whistles and " Hail Columbia" was
rendered by the passengers.
The following morning was very foggy and it was deemed inadvisable to
Iftart on our return trip until one o'clock
p, m. Nothing of note occurred till
reaching the mouth of Pitt river.
Owing to the current our vessel made
a quick trip down, but was unable to
enter Pitt river because of sand banks
at the mouth. While trying to oross
the bar the Rithet steamed past us
on hor way to Yale. We were much
disappointed at not being able to see
the bridge across Pitt river. The
structure is 1845 feet long aud supported by 10 piers. Immense cutwaters and stanchions and masonry
work mako it strong and secure The
work was commenced in January, und
has cost upwards of 9100,000, the rock
work alone costing$20,000. The view
from this bridgo iB said to bo very fine,
tho prairie country stretching away for
miles until ihe Coquitlam iB reached.
Beyond is Pitt Lake, a beautiful sheet*
of water. Ou the left and beyond are
high mountain peaks, snow-capped, aud
glittering in' tho sun. A sunset from
Pitt river is said to be most gorgeously
grand.
On arriving at New Westminster we
lay opposite the wharf for a few moments, during whioh threo cheers were
given for the progressive town, and
three' responsivo ones received for Seattle. Many people witnessed our do-
fmrturo from tho docks and windows of
louses overlooking the harbor, remaining at their posts until or vessel faded
from sight down tho rivor.
Now Westminster is growing rapidly.
Thoro is no reason why great commercial advantages cannot be obtained by
encouraging a trade with Seattle. A
regular line of steamers could be put on
this route. If it is done, Seattle can
and wilt supply the trade of Fraser river
better than either Viotoria, Portland or
San Francisco.
Now' Westminster being a port of
entry, a direct trade could easily be
established. Everything depends upon the energy of ihe merchants of both
oities to create a reciprocity of trade,
and, if oarried out, immense advantages
will acme from tho effort.
It will tako years, oven after the completion of tho Canadian Pacific Railroad, to build up a commerce at Port
Mo-'dy. - Tiio country immediately back*
of it is yet a wilderness. The agricultural country lies south of Fraser river
and ia and will be for years to oome
controlled by New Westminster. Let
our citizens combine to put a steamer
on that route, touching at the islands
of the lower Sound, and the result will
he an addition to the exports of our
city amounting to hundreds of thousands of dollars annually.

A POWERFUL IAWLESS. SECRET ORGANIZATION
(London Telegraph Letter.)
It was in connection with the soldiers
camped at Hangchow that I got somo
information respecting a system which
has of late years spread all ovor China
—I refer to the secret society. Night
was coming on, and I had. returned to
my house-boat with the intention of
turning in, when I found my sailors
busily employed in getting up sail once
mora. As it was my intention to stay
at Hangchow for the night I naturally
asked the reason of this, when my men
frankly replied that though the
" Braves" 1 had been, looking at were
very orderly in camp and very excellent people in iheir way, yet there were
attached to the camp, a certain number
of pestilent persons who would very
possibly take advantage of-the darkness
to out my throat and pillage the boat.
In vain I expressed scepticism on this
point; the boatmen were positive, and
in the end, as either of the probablities
they pictured would have seriously incommoded mo, I concluded to let them
have their way. Accordingly we
moored the craft nearer to the gates
of tho city, close to a police watch-
house. It was then that the "captain"
of the boat asked leave for a few hours.
He belonged, he said, to a secret society, and could fiud out how matters
stood at Hangchow if I would let him
fo; and, permission being given, away
e went, to return at midnight, in
company with several companions, all
of whom slept in the front of the boat
till morning, and then departed. I
afterwards learned that they had come
at his request to watch for any stragglers from the camp who might chance
to turn up. A very littlo inquiry
showed me that this story of the secret
socioty influence was no myth, but that
tho "society" lo which the man-referred was a very real and powerful
organization. An incident which afterwards came under my notice in a neighbouring country to China confirmed
this. The proprietor—a Frenchman,
curiously onough—of a sawmill thought
fit to kick one of the Celestials in his
employ before the rest of the workmen.
An hour later the mill bell rang for the
midday meal. Out filed the 500 Chinamen or so who had been at work, all
as pleased and apparently as satisfied as
though they had been attending a
funeral; but, when the bell rang for
the resumption of work, not one of the
almoned-eyed returned. The proprietor fumed and fretted, but to no purpose. No Chinamen in sight. At last
it struck the Frenchman that something might be wrong, and a short examination showed him that all his saws and
bands had boen broken, and tliat a
notice from the Chinese secret society
was posted on hiB mill door, warning all
Chinamen off. Things were begin ing
to look serious; nor did they mend
when he wont home, for there lay a
letter telling him that tho secret society
intended to punish him with death for
what he had done. A little reflection
convinced him that it would bo better
to leave the place, which he did with
useless anathemas Against secret societies in general, and the Society of the
White L<ly in particular. Of course I
heard, of many another incident of a
like kind before I left the Far East. It
was clear to me that any man might be
removed by tho secret society without
any trouble, -and •■ that, with the exception .of the authorities at Singapore,
who have found a method of coping
with this class of lawlessness, nobody
had yet been discovered who could fight
against the White Lily or its branches.
Growth of Salvation Army.
The Salvation Army is about to celebrate lis eighteenth anniversary, and it
is authoritatively stated (hat whereas
at the last anniversary there were only
320 corps and 706 officers, the army
now possesses, at home and abroad, 601
corps and 1/39 officers. A now order
of sergeants has been created ; 245 outposts have been occupied under their
command, and each sergeant, taking
wiih him a detachment of from'two to
twenty soldiers, marches on Sundays,
frequently from fivo to ten miles to
some village, where service is conducted in any school room, barn, or
other building.
The army has 180 officers abroad.
In India a sulficeut number of natives
have joined tho army to provide interpreters in the most prevalent language of lhe principal cities; and the
work has been, with the exception of
£100 ot £200, entirely supported by
funds raised in India. The growth of
the army in Australin Colonies has been
tho marvel of tho year. Twelve months
ago there were only some three or four
corps established in South Australia.
Now in the 4 Australian Colonies and
in New Zealand the army has twenty-
four corps, under Borne forty officers,
Half a dozen buildings have been erected or'purchased. The English War
Cry, issued once a week twelve months
ago, has become a bi-weekly, wlillo no
fewer than.twelve other War Crys aro
published in different parts intheworld,
and there is a prospect bf four others
before the close of tho year.—London

I.MMKN8E Spots o» thb Sun.—A recent observation of the sun showed that
his gulden face is disfigured at present
by thtoe huge spots, one in the southern and two in the northern hemisphere. The largest spot cuvored a
space of at least a twentieth of tho sun's
diameter, which translated into figures
is about forty-four thousand miles.
Imagination fails to give au idea of
a huge cavity or raging cyclone cm
Buch a gigantic scale. Tho earth could
be tossed in tho seething vortex like a
ball into a pond, Tho four inner plan-
eta, Mercury, Venus, the earth and
Mars, transfused into one mass, would
not half till tho chasm, if its depth be
in proportion to ita external dimensions. Even the giant Noplune, the
third planet iu size of the solar family,
measured Bide by Bide with this enormous sun cavern, would not-equal its
diameter oy thousands of miles. Immense as was the size of this sun spot,
it has beeu groatly exceeded by several
that have been observed during the
past year. The second spot was nearly
as largo as the first, and the third was
by no means insignificant. -The Ameri-

The Qceub of a Chinaman.-A New
Jersey Court will soon bo called upon
to decide a case without the aid of pre-
condents. Five Chinamen, calling
themselves Sam Kee, Moy Wing, Mon
Tom, Moy Dock and Sam Wah, served
a term of imprisonment at Trenton for
anassult upon one of their own countrymen. On thoir arrival at the prison,
the keeper, according to usage, cut their
hair, which involved the loss of their
pig-tails, almost precious in the minds
of ChiAamon as the heads to which they
are attached. Thoy now bring suit for
damages against the prison authorities for the loss of the appendages,
which, as thoy claim, have a religious
signifiance, and sacredness. They base
their suit upon tlio article of the Con-
■       ■  ■    i iii
stitution which declares that all men
shall be protected in their right to
'' worship God according to the dictates
of their own consciences.''

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
Through the thin, bluo-voined hand
his eyes looked wearily up to the sky as
if thoy would piur*) its vory depths,
and his lips moved slightly as if in
"Mr. Olivo," said Milly, in a pained
tono, " do not talk bo , it grieves me to
hear you: you cannot have known such
suffering as this V
"Pardon.me Miss Vaughan, I was
not speaking of personalities."
"Oh, forgivo me," she said, looking
at him so imploringly that his momentary hauteur vanished, " something
in your voice was bo sad tliat I feared
you woro speaking of yourself: but of
course in your ministerial capacity you
muBt havo a largo experience of hearts
and human lifo."
He did uot answer her, hut lay for
awhile with shaded eyes, till suddenly
"  and abruptly, as I thought, lie turned
to mo.
"Miss Mortimer, you think a groat
deal, your faco shows it j do you imagine that there is balm to be found for
wounds such na I liuvi* boen describing?"
The mans weary face evoked my
sympathy.
" Cau you ask, sinco tho sting wna
taken away from doath I Hasnot everything its appointed cure I"
"No," no said;" thoro is noroal
curo for remorse."
" Because their is no such thing with
the Christian, fur with him, remorse
merges into repentance, and rspentauce
brings its never-failing consoliitimi.",
" But must not man pay the penalty
of his>short-sighted weakness V'
"I suppose so, to n certain extant,
but you know tho old suying, ' the wind
is tempered to tho shorn lamb; and
even to these gusts uud storms nf human
passion thore shall come a ' peace, be
■tiU.' "
A sweet smilo broke ovor his face,
and then ho looked at Milly ; a look so
sad, bo yearning, so tender, that she
must have rend it, for a conscious color
reddened over fnco and nock, and rising, sho snid—
" Wo are becoming snd, talking liko
this, so I shnll show Nellie my protty
white cow to raise ber spirits."   *
We went together, but ns Bhe unlocked tho littlo green door, Mr Clivo
was at our sido again. „
"The sight is no novelty to you,"
snid Milly, playfully.
" Ib that a pretext for ridding yourself of my company 1 I am very fond
of visiting your protty white cherry."
" Horwald sent her to us," said
Milly, " aud he gavo me the bee-hive
too ; he ha-i promised mo a glass hive
noxt summer for the flout gardon; nnd,
look, thesebnntiims.im from Hurst Hnll
too."
"Ho, Tiney, and lo, Tiney, and
protty little cow, Bland still," sang
Milly, as Cherry, jangling her boll,
tossed up her head and scampered
round the yard.
''Steady there, lass," nnd alio patted
her sleek sal in skin.
" Oherry never behaves like the
Tiney nf tho song : she nevor kicks me
or her pnil either, but gives mo freely
her sweet now milk ; now como and ace
old Molly."
Old Molly was a bow feeding at a
trough with he.i curly-tailed litter of
pigs. I had a wholesome dislike for
the unclean tenants of the sly, and I
was accordingly surprised, and I think
Mr. CUvc too, at Miliy's coaxing remarks to old Molly, and to see her
stroking her hairy back with a long
stick, till she rushed off snorting with
her whirly tail in the nir
" Now I want you to see my thrush's
nest in the field, and my red-eyed rabbits, and dormice. Oh, tho gate is
looked, and Arthur has the key."
"Shall I fetch itl" aaid Mr. Clivo,
"but tho grass ia long and damp,
perhaps you had bettor not go thero."
Milly lookod at her neat little slippers, and said "Very well," so wo
turned back to the house; nt the door
we meet tho othou.
" You have cut us, Milly," said Herwald, " and now wo nre going to cut
you ; the carriage is here."
" Oh, not so soon. Surely, Nellie,
you will ask him to stay; we can't let
you go."
" Wo must indeed," Baid Herwald,
who had before told mo that he had
ordered the carriage early, that wo
might not overtax their hospitality.
"Nowdon't you fly ofFotatangont;
I am going to leave you to unpack the
- hamper Mrs. Arundel hns sent."
" A hamper! oh Herwald, how kind;
what is in it ?"
"A haunch of venison, and some
head of grouse for Arthur, nnd some
Paris chooalate and bunbons for your
little self, and I believe Mrs. Arundel
has put in some homo preserves nnd
hothouse fruits; but that is hers and
Davidson's business."
"Herwald," snid Milly, stamping
hor foot, "if you havo overloaded it,
I shall send it back. I won't havo
you rob yourself." r
"My dear Milly, do you expect me
to eat all my game myself? I should
only hnvo sunt it to Gray aud St.
Clair; I nm only sorry they aro not
my own shot, but this fellow is such
an angler, ho cares for no other sport."
Milly wrinkled her eyebrows nnd
looked dubious; perhaps sho was thinking how her little inaid-of-ali-work
would manage tho grouso,
"And, Milly," continued Herwald
in a coaxing tone, "I have brought
you a little souvenir from Rome—a
cameo, Psyche's head, I am sure you
will like It. You will accept it, will
you not? I have sent it to Liverpool
to be set as a brooch."
"Oh, Arthur, listen to him, tho
setting will oost as much as the
cameo."
"On the contrary," said Horwald,
prowkingly, "it is rather a costly
one, it is beautifully cut."
"Then I won't have it," said Milly,
decidedly.
"Wont you? very well, I vow that
if you do not instantly accept it, I'll
present it to Miss Rivers; alio will be
, charmed, I know; and now I think of
it, a tittle offering will be acceptable."
"No, no," cried Milly, in a fury,
"she shall not have it, it is mine; do
you hear! it is mine; but I will not
thank you for it, you are far too generous "
"Nonsense, wait a minute, I have
something (or Arthur too, iu the carriage;" and he darted awav to get it,
returning out of breath. "Now, Arthur, don't scold for wasting my
money as Milly did; I would keep
this myself if I dared, but I should
btcomo a Romanist and make an idol
of it if it were in my possession, but
your mind is stronger than mine"—
and ha unfolded from many wraps nn
Ivory cruoiuK, so exquisitely carved
that its value must have been prico*
leu. "Bridget will be shocked at her
master's heresy; but never mind,
Arthur, hang it up fearlessly in your
tiff for b°ft * m not * mS>
and I nm not going to keep this gem;"
and Arthur's blue eyes peered through
his spectacles hungrily at the beautiful crucifix.
"Then I'll smash it," said Herwald,
snatching it so roughly that Arthur,
thinking he meant it, grasped the
treasure in sudden fright, and his face
quite Hushed ns he tried to thank his
friend.
"Nonsense," again said Herwald,
"I won't shake hands for that;" but
he did, looking as happy and radiant
as a young prince. Herwald showed
more to advantage at Rose Cottage
than at tha Cedars; there he was the
listless cynical young aristocrat; here,
among his friends who loved him, he
was frank, boyish, and full of life.
As wo passed into tho little dark passage, I whispered something to liim
to which he gleefully responded:
"Milly, Nellie has proposed a capital plan; that ynu and Arthur should
spend a long day with us. I will send
the carringe for yuu at eleven o'clock,
tho day after to-moirow; so thnt you,
old felloif, may have a cotiplo of hours'
fishing beforo lunch, and afterwards
wo will have n bout on tho river."
"Oh, what fun," cried Milly, in her
odd, childish way; and then ns I Baid
good-bye, she raised herself ou tiptoe
and kissed mu. The last glimpse, as
Arthur placed mo in the carriage and
we drove off, was Milly standing by
tho gate, nud behind her, just in shnd-
ow, Hubert Clive,
*#■***•*
Tliu next day wns the first at Hurst
Hall tliat I wns allowed to enjoy
quietly, nnd I did enjoy it thoroughly
to my heart's content. From morning till night nothing occurred to mar
its tranquility; no stray visitors; no
business ngents or business letters for
Herwald, but one delightful occupation following another. Three hours'
work in the fernery, planting, transplanting, and arranging; a breezy rido
.over the moors; an evening passed in
company with Beothovon and Mendelssohn, and u moonlight stroll in the
park.
Punctually at eleven o'clock the foi
lowing morning the carriage dashed
up tho avenue, and Milly tripped out
in her fresh white muslin, and broad
straw -hat, and Arthur followed hor,
looking gentlemanly in his light gray
suit. While the gentlomen went off
to their sport, eager not to lose a
minute, Milly and I wandered leisurely
through the conservatories, park, and
garden; and then selecting a shady
nook, worked and chnttcd till the
gong summoned us in to the midday
meal. There wo found Mr. Clive
waiting our return on tho terrace,
whom Milly Beamed mora* pleased than
surprised to seo; though I own his
being there looked to mo very pointed.
Herwald took it naturally, however.
"Wlmt, como to tnvell the number
of our oars? that's right.rt
Mr. Olive muttered something about
a leisure Itour nnd parochial duties;
but for all that, came with us, as a
matter of courso, when we crossed tho
meadows to the river, and embarked
in Horwald's protty pleasure-boat.
Thore wo spent the afternoon deli-
ciously, now being swiftly impelled
along by our four oarsmen, now drifting lazily with tho current; Arthur
and Herwald chanted now and then
somo old boating song, while Milly
steered and I sat trailing my hand
lazily in tho cool water. Onco we
landed, and wandered along the green
banks; while Dudley followed lis in
tlio boat. The afternoon was waning
into evening when wo returned to the
house, nnd I took Milly np to my
room to prepare for dinner.
"Oh, the dear room, rosu-colored
every bit of it; how pretty, Nellie!"
"Ia it nol?" I said; it is Horwald's
taste, and it wns all done for me; wos
it not kind?"
Of which self -satisfied littlo speech
I repented, when Miliy's eyes took
-the same quiet searching look that
Mra, Arundel's hnd on a similar occasion. Whereupon, not without a
covert rebuke for her feminine suspicions, I gavo her to understand once
for all the connection between us and
Herwald, though I nm not sure I
quite convinced her that thnt was the
whole truth. She brushed nut her
long black hair thoughtfully, aud said
nothing.
"What beautiful hair, Milly!" I said,
to change the subject, and how long!"
"Yes; look, I can kneel on it, or if I
hold buck my head so, I cau make it
touch the iloor; sometimes," continued
vain Milly, "when I brush it, it crackles nud crisps like a cat's back, and I
call Arthur up to admire it."
"Well," I asked, smiling, "does he?"
"Of courso, though he sometimes
calls mo a vain puss, or a feminino
Absalom, but once when he was playing with it," said Milly, softly, "and
making believe to strangle himself, I
felt him kiss it, poor dear; for would
you believe it, Nellie, Arthur loves me
ever so much more than I do him,
though I do care vory much for my
dear ugly boy, who pets me, aud works
for me, and tries to make rae as clever
as himself. Nellie," bIio continued, ns
she knotted nud braided up her hair so
swiftly with hor dimpled hands, "do
you ever think yourself pretty?"
"Of courso not, Milly; what an
idea ?"
"I do; is it wrong ? but sometimes I
talk to myself in tho glass, and think
what a nice little face I am looking at,
and sometimes when I think of nll tho
protty trinkets and fino new dresses
mamma uaed to buy me, I am ready to
cry. Am I very naughty, Nellie?"
and she turned har earnest child's eyes
on me.
What could I say—I, who had read
her secret, and knew why tho protty
face was prized aud made much of ?
Was it by a'natural sequence of idens
that she should then ask me what I
thought of Mr. Clivo, and how I liked
him?
You ought, Nellie, for he has taken n great fancy to you; he told mo
you had a true woman s face."
"I was thankful to be able to say
