Important to Parents.
Mr. W. M. F, Round, secretary
of the Prison Association of New
York, contributes to the Independ-
anl an able article on "Grime Beginning and Grime Prevention,"
from which we extract the following: "Day by day I see criminals,
hundreds of them—thousands of
them in tlio course of tho yenr. I
seo scores of broken-hearted parents, wishing rather that their sons
had never been born, than they had
lived to boar such burdens of shame
and disgrace. I-Jiear the wailing of
disappointed mothers, nnd see humiliated fathers crying like children,
because of the sina of their children.
I see mothers growing gray between the successive visits in which
they come to inquire about the boy
in prison. And seeing these dreadful things till my heart aches,
I Buy to those mothers and fathers
whose boys have not yet gone ns-
tnry, to those mothers and fathers
whose little families are the care of
their lives, teach our children obedience. I want it written large. I
wish 1 could make is blaze here in
letters of fire. I wish I could write
it in imperishable, glowing letters
on the wall of every home—obedience, obedience, obedience! Obedience to
law—to household law; to parental
authority; unquestioning, intant,
exact obedience. - Obedience in the
family; obedience in tho school.
Wherever, from beginning, from the
first glimmering of intelligence in the
ohild, there is expression of law, let
there be taught respect for it and
obedience to it It is the royal
road to virtue, to good citizenship; it
is the only road. Teach also the
clear distinction between mine and
thine. Let the line be unwaveing.
Let therejbe no quibbling with terms,
aud the distinction can not be
taught in the family where it is not
observed. Where debts are con
tracted carelessly and paid reluct-
nnty, honesty can not be the- dominating principle. In such a moral
atmosphere there is contamination.
There- is poison that will come out
in things counted more shameful
than debts. Educate a boy in suoh
a way that he shall think it of no
consequence whether the milk bill
is paid from one year's end to another, and you educate him to take
his employer's money, with the vague intention of replacing it some
time. Educate tho boy to think
better of himself in a fine coat,
whether the tailor's bill be paid or
not, and you so weaken his moral
sense that he can not resist the
temptation, when the opportunity
comes for gratifying his vanity by
stealing. Make a boy think that a
high social position is the first thing
to be thought of in the world, aud
he will sacrifice his moral principles
for the position. It is frequently
said, in my hearing: "How strange
it is that so many ohildren of respectable parents go astray!" To
which I always answer: "It is
strange that no few of them go
astray." But it is not respectability
that sends them astray, it is sham respectability. It is afalse,sentimental
idea of the love due to children that
makes them disobedient; the ensy
going, tender-hearted, doting parent
that can't benr the sight of a child's
pain, and spun* itself the sight at
the peril of the child's future. It
is the mother's und father's cruel
selfishness that spares the child. It
is the sickening yearning ufter
"gentility," the willingness to buy a
sham social position at nny expense, that ruint many a boy and
many a girl. The parents would
rather hear how well their ohildren
stand socially, than to hear how
good and upright they are. The
children soon catch this tone,
and think gentility is bettor than
goodness; and make n sacrifice of
gooodness to getility, whenever they
think their social standing will be
served by it. This is of course not
truo of all so-culled respectable families whose children go astray, but
it is so often true that I always ex
jrcirt to Hud it so when such cases
come before mc; and nlas! I am not
often disappointed."
New Zealand hns never enjoyed
the fume of the Australian contin
ent for irs gold produce, hut nevertheless since 1857 the gold fields of
New Zealand have produced in

gold exported reached its highest
point in 1S66, when 735,376 ounces, vnlii.»d at $2,8-15,517, were exported. The present production is

Loxuu.N, Oct. 20.—As a result'of
the circular recently issued stating thai!
blocks of wood from trees felled by
Mr. Gladstone at Hawardon might be
hud at fixed prices, Mao ex-premier has
been overwhelmed with written requests for souvenirs of his wood-chopping operations. Consequently Mr.

interest in the matter.

BVICTION ACCOMPLISHED.
Dublin, Oct. 21.—The police surprised and evicted a tenant named
Kenny at Woodford to-day. A strong

BHAVERY BEWARDKU.
San Francisco, Oct. 21.—Wells,
Fargo & Co. to-day sent a check for
£2,000 to messenger Smith at Houston,

THE REMAINS OF ARCHBISHOP SEOHEBS.
San Francisco, Oct 21. — When
the revenue cutter Bear loft St. Michael's in September, Captain Healy was
not able to bring the body of the murdered Archbishop Seghers to this port
for burial, owing to the fact that permission had not been obtained from
the treasury department. That obstacle has now been removed by an
order from Secretary Fairchild directed to Captain Healy. The secretary
authorizes tho conveyance of the remains to any spot whioh may be designated for burial. Prior to ihe departure of His Eminence Cardinal Gibbons, the matter will bo laid .beforo
him, and his views' ascertained as to
whether the body will be interred at
Victoria or elsewhere. At present
the remains aro encased in a coffin
covered with sheet iron, and deposited
in an old Russian church at St. Michael's. Captain Healy thinks that
either the Bear or the Thetis will
bring the body from the north noxt
fall.

THE MYSTERY SOLVED.
Los Anoelos, Cal., Oct. 22. -Hat-
tie Woolstceu made a full confession

ttjARS AN OUTBREAK.
Cmir.ir',0, Oot. 22.—The fear is wide
spread that there will be an outbreak
on tlie day the 7 condemned anarchists
ascend tho gallows, and the scenes
which will follow will make the Hay-
market massacre insignificant. The
whole district near tlie jail has been
depopulated owing to the fear that
dynamite will be used on November
Ilth, the day of the execution. Moat
extensive preparations have already
been made by the sheriff and chief of
police to provide against any such calamity, but the apprehensions of the
public are not allayed.

they can do ao by freeing these poor
girls, whose story is hen partly only
related, from the worse than captivity
and slavery among the Indiana, to
which they are at present subjected.
Facta are stubborn things hu been
said and the following are facts which
we can verify to tlmse who wish to
take thia matter in hand. Then lived
in Victoria some years ago a man with
his family, consisting of hia wife and
three or four children. He wu a
heavy drinker and a dissolute fellow,
and what little money he had went for
whiskey, often leaving his family
without the necsssaries of life. By
threats and cosxinj he induced them
to move to San Juan on the West
Coast—among the Indiana. Sine*
then but little haa been heard of th.ru
until recently. The wife at the time,
of their departure wu
NEARLY   CRAZED
with fear and sorrow. She wu a
finely educated whito woman and from
a good family. As we are informed
one of the daughters is married to or
living with a Chinaman, presumably
sold to bim by hor father u the Chinaman is quite wealthy, another daughter is living with the Indiana on Barclay Sound, having been bartered by
her father for blankets, commodities
and other things for his own use. A
few weeks ago while a schooner wu
down to Barclay Sound, a white girl
eamo running on board, followed by
some Indians, begging and entreating .
the captain in the most piteoua manner
to bring her to Victoria. The Indiana
demanded her as their property, but
the oaptain promptly refused to give
her up. They left but returned in a
a short time with many othen, and
and the captain fearing trouble and
not knowing whnt sort of a scrape ha
might get into, allowed the Indiana to
depart with tlieir captive. A atill
younger girl ol Iho aame family, about
SIX YEARS   Of AOE
was aeon in a canoe filled with Indiana
near Uaoe Rooka light house not long
since, but hearing of aome remarks
made about the white girl being in
tlieir possession, hastily departed and
nothing hu been heard of her ainee.
It la believed that the mother of thia
unfortunate family ia dud. Tha
father is still among the Indians, preferring to live with them rather than
the white people, for u he wu onoa
heard to say, " The Indiana are gentlemen and I prefer to live among
them." The above atory reads much
like a dime novel, is true,but "truth is
atranger than fiction." Then are
many minor facia besides those -recorded and they will be furnished to
anyone designing to help thaw unfortunate ohildren from their captivity,
ind it is to bs hoped that soma Christian family will intercede oa behalf of
these unfortunates and steps taken to
rolievo them from their captivity."
Mrs. O'Hearn, River street, Toronto,
uses Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil for her
cows for Cracked and Sore Teats; aha
thinks there is nothing like it. She also
used it whon her horses had the Eplaoo-
tic with the very beat results. Do aot

place of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrio Oil.

$ail2 $ritish Columbian
Saturday Evealag, Oct. rlrt,
The death of Ayoub Khan, the
enemy of British influence in Afghanistan, is said to be a fact, and
the fact gives much relief both to
the Afghan and the British government. At the samo time the ameer
is showing greater vigor and meeting with more success in his efforts
to suppress the rebellious spirits
who have risen up against his authority, The present authorities
are, of course, favorable to British
influence and opposed to Russia,
but the Afghan ameers and people
are a fickle and faithless race, and
cannot be depended on. As a rule
their loyalty ia measured by the
subsidy it brings. If Russia is ablo
to pay a big enough price, she will
probably buy the right to do as sho
pleases in Afghanistan. In the
meantime Great Britain is having
her innings, nnd is paying well for
the game, If Ayoub is really dead,
and not merely foxing, it will certainly make things easer, but if ho
.should manage to come to life again,
as those eastern fellows have sometimes an awkward habit of doing,
he might make the situation very
inconvenient and interesting.
When we published the extract
from the provincial secretary's statement at Ottawa, as it appeared in
the Free Press, we intimated that
the interviewer had probably not
made an accurate report of what
was said. It seemed to us quite
impossible that the provincial secretary could have made a statement
bo completely at variance with the
facts. If he, or the government,
hod been willing to abandon the
Southern Railway, or conceived it
to be antagonistic to the publio interest, why did thoy support the
bill granting a charter to the road!
The charter went through the house
without opposition, and we have no
reason to suppose that any change
has taken place in the opinions of
the members of the house on this
question. The telegram received by
Mayor Dickinson last night seems
to confirm the opinion that the pro
vincial secretary's statement was
misrepresented in the Free Press,
What he really did say will no
doubt be made known in due time.
A great deal of feeling has been
aroused by the report of the Free
Press, but it will be wisest to suspend judgment until fuller information has been received.
It is stated in a despatch from
Ottawa that Secretary Bayard has
expressed regret because his instructions had not been carried out to
release the Canadian sealers seized
in Behring's Sea; and it is said the
secretary had further intimated that
fresh orders had been given for
their release. This is satisfactory
as far aa it goes, if the American
government will at the same time
recoup the sealers for all losses connected with these seizures. At the
same time the case of the United
States as set out by Mr. Delaney,
V. S. counsel, has been published.
This is a very comprehensive document, and steadfastly maintains
that Behring's Sea is wholly within
the jurisdiction of the United States,
inasmuch as it must be regarded as
an inland sea, lying wholly within
American territory. While stoutly
pressing this claim, Mr. Delaney
freely admits the right of a nation
to maintain jurisdiction to the extent of three miles into all adjacent
waters. This admission may materially aisist the fishery commission in reaching a conclusion with
respect to the Canadian claim to
exclusive jurisdiction over the fisheries on the eastern Canadian coast.
Our excellent friend of the Herald comes to hand again promptly
with nearly a column of disallowance. A few days ago we denied
that the Columbian had advised the
Manitobans to call a special session.
The Herald says wo are inclined to
split hairs, and intimates that if we
did not advise, we suggested. Now,
we most emphatically deny this also,
and we must ask our salt water co-
temporary to be good enough to lay
aside his very disagreeable habit of
misrepresenting. After stating the
position of the disallowed railway,
after the judgment delivered in the
Browning case, we said: "The only
way out of the difficulty seems to
be. to call a special session of the
legislature, pass a new railway bill
and rush the work through before it
can be vetoed." Now, this is neither advice nor suggestion—it is a
simple statement of fact. It was
long ago suggested by eastern newspapers that a special aeasion would
be the best way to meet the difficulty, and if our salt water cotemporary keeps himself informed on
current events he must havo known
this. Our cotemporary's column of
theories is, therefore, utterly wasted
becauae it ia baaed upon a misrepresentation which originated with
himself.

Poisonous Beverages.
Many of the fraternal ordors aro
seriously discussing the question
whether whiskey and beer drinking
shall bo longer tolerated among them,
That large numbers of othorwiso
good and noblo nieii shorten their
lives by the dally indulgence iu moderate tippling iB a fact too well attested
to admit of any doubt.
The individual may drink whiskey
or other form of ardent spirit habitually, but in such moderation as never
to disguise his features, or mask, or
distort his natural character. His
nearest friends may not be able to discover its influence upon him, yet the
poiaon is steadily aud surely, though
slowly undermining his constitution.
It enters the mass of blood, blunts
organio sensibility, and deranges
secretions—especially in the liver,
termed by physicians cirrhoseis or hobnailed liver. Yet the victim may
never have been drunk in his life!
The man who daily quaffs his dozen
glasses of beer stands in equal danger
though the percentum of alcohol in
that beverage being much smaller than
in ardent spirit, its pernioious influence upon health is not manifested so
early. Long continued habitual beer
drinking will, however, induce a disposition to obesity, fat boing deposited
in abnormal amount in all parta of the
body where it naturally accumulates,
and finally, in many instances, certain
organs, as the kidneys, liver and heart
become overladen with the oily product
and death inevitably ensues.
So insiduous and impercepticle are
the morbid changes induced in the system i so pleasant, exhilirating or cheering is the immediate effect of the social
glass, that tho unwary victim becomes
ita helpless, hopeless prey, not only
ere he iB aware of dangor, but while he
actually feels and boasts of its wholesome influence upon both mind and
body!
Truly, no physical or psychical feeling and sensations are, or can bo, more
delightful at the moment, than are the
inspiration realized daily—for a brief
period—by the man who begins the
habit of drink. He first experiences
a sense of indescribable bodily lightness and elasticity, with an unspeakable inward tranquility. This stage is
quickly followed by a remarkable exaltation of the intellectual faculties,
exciting a preternatural manifestation
of mental power and activity, (Perception is quickened, tho flow of ideas,
the flash of thought and corruscations
of fancy aro all heightened and rendered intuitive, brilliant and creative.
These pleasant and enticing effects of
of alcoholic stimulation are, however,
delusive and transient.
Day by day, the nervoUB system becomes accustomed to the unnatural
excitement, tho dose—as with opium
and othor stimulant narcotics —requires to be increased, while ita exhilarating influence diminishes in direct
ratio to the larger amount taken; until, finally, in pursuit of its seductive,
but false allurements, the wretched
toper guzzles it down in unmeasured
quantities, only to be mocked and
cursed by its stupifying and soporitio
properties atone. Persistence in the
habit now speedily closes the tragedy
in delirium and death.
But, our most dangerous cases, aud
because they are so common, are the
habitual moderate drinkers of ardent
spirits or beer. Wo must rojeot all
such. Thoir further acceptance as
members will be at our dendly peril.

What Canadian Doctors Think.
In response to the inqniry addressed
to them recently by the Canada Milan, "Is total abstinence, in your opinion, compatible with the fullest degree of physical health?" eighty-two
of 91 physicians of Toronto answered
in tho affirmative. Of the 1)1 there
wero 57 who emphatically denouncod
all moderate drinking as bad, 34 whoso
opinions on that point woro vory diversified, tliough only about 10 distinctly favored habitual drinking in
quantities usually deemed moderate.
Again of tho 01 thore woro 75 who
agreed in the opinion that the total
abstainer had a better chance than the
modorate drinker for recovery from
disease or accident; and 81 of the .01
agreed that total abstinence would bo
a great publio benofit. Tho modera-
tionists were in a small minority. As
a whole tho answers show gratifying
progress ill tho sphere of medical
temperance opinion.
The liquor bill of tho" United Kingdom last year was £123,208,000, equal
to the total amount apent 'in bread,
butter and cheese; more than the
rental of all houses; nearly twice the
rental of all farms; and thirty millions
more than tho ontire expenditure of
the government. The consumption
waa at the rate of thirty gallons of
liquor por head of the population.
Wo have the local option in Canada,
and consume but three gallons per
head, although of course the consumption in our manufacture is much less
than in England.
 A  ....	
What a rebuke to this nation, receiving millions of dollars annually
from its revenue nn liquors, is conveyed by the Queen of Madagascar, when
she aaya, in a recent proclamation: "I
oannot consent, as your Queen, to
take a single penny of revenue from
that which destroys the aoula and
bodies of my subjects."
A speaker at a great temperanco
meeting Jn Reading, England, said
that if eaoh toototaller in the Vnitod
Kingdom woro to secure another and
the process wore annually repvotod,
the entire population would becomo
toetotallors in (our years.

a«£anaeex. The Mlsititilm-Htoml Hotel Clerls.
"Yon see," aaid tho clerk, "ono ol our
rli'ef duties ia to answer questions. A
lihiK yon are in the' habit of doing all
•lie timo Boon becomes almost automatic,
mil you can do it while your mind is
•cally on other things. People aak the
isinir questions of n hotel clerk a hundred
rimes a dny. He quickly gets the an-
iwere down to the briefest possible formula. These he rattles off in a perfunct-
ary, uninteresting way to all inquirers,
-includinir ncwspriper men. Tlie news-
wp.Tuion get 11 idea that they have
lot received sii.tiuient attention, and im-
iiedintelv jump to tho conclusion that
rlic clerks abstracted manner is due to
wlf-coiuc'it, then it is aim ply a result of
lystemntiiri.ig Iii, work." There is a
trout deal in this,, but the fact remains
;hat is. some unaccountable manner
many hotel clerks, and especially young
sues, absorb tho idea that they are of vast
Miiso'iuonco in a community, and above
the nirir 'ssity which other business men
Hnl o.' being civil to all comers. I saw
ono of lluse aell-important lads beautifully t iken down br on older and more
experienced man at an uptown hotel a
abort timo ago.    The young man in
auestion handles the mail of ao many
istinrnisliod statesmen that he quite
consi I 'ra himself one of them, and feels
competent to patronize any ordinary
people who fall in hla way. A wolf-
known senator of dyspeptic diathesis and
uncertain temper had just arrived. The
young clerk beamed on him with all the
kinllineaa of personal regard, inquired
after hia health, and woundup by asking,
in a rather loud tone of voioe, when the
statesman's wife and daughter would return te town. The Mutator turned on
him with a look that just desolated tbe
smile on his countenance, and drvlv, but
loudly, answered: "Well, I'll let you
know In time for you to make the fires
in their rooms."
Manytag far Money.
Glrla, don't marry a man for money,'
position, or anything but love. Don't do
it if you want to live to a good old age
and be happy. You may think that
money can bring you all you desire, but
it can't. That is where you are mistaken.
It can buy a good many things, but it can
never purchase contentment for your
heart or happiness for your soul. It may
bring temporary smiles to your face, but
it will leave great shadows in your heart.
Don't think that I would advise you to
marry a worthless fellow, just because!
you Imagine you love him, A refined,
good intelligent woman should never
marry a vulgar, ill-bred man. No, no,
never unite yourself to any one who is
not n man in Hie truest meaning of tho
word. Neither could I advise a woman
to marry a man who had no visible
means oi supporting her, but (or heaven's
sake do not marry a millionaire or a king
II you don't love him. It will not do.
i'eople have tried it time and again, only
I > lind it is a miserable failure. It may
rln lor a while. You may revel ingUded
b i Is and be lost in the giddy rounds of
|r .'risnro, but a time will come when
tirote things will be a hollow mockery to
yun. There will be an "aching void' the
world can never All. Sometimes mothers
are tn blame lor the nnhappineas ol their
daughters. They teach them that respect
for their husband and Iota of "boodle"
are infinitely to be preferred to that
foolishness called Ion. That would do
very well if life had no waves ol trouble,
but it, t .kes something more than simple
raui.vt to make two hearts cling together
in tliu hour of adversity. A woman that
turns her back on wealth and takes the
mnn of her choice may miss some of tlu
I \-rn-: sof life, bat she will be happy.
< nr i marry a dude. Belter get vou a
ti' ni key. It ia cheaper nnd a great deal
ir: >'. Don't fool with that class of
animals. They generally wear a $10 hat
on a 10 cent brain, and the woman who
tikes one of then chaps will get lelt
nbout as badly aa the Southern Confederacy did at Appamattor.

The aulphur bath is a local luxury,
and with a clothespin on your nose is
not bad. Having read the pleasing account in large print in the daily papers
of a man who scratched for twenty-eight
years nnd then unfortunately got cured
ami entered the advertising columns In
time to apoil your appetite for breakfast,
you conclude to bathe. Madera physiology is discovering so many kinds of
microscopic nuisances concealed about
one sanatohiy that the idea of a sulphur
bath is rather attractive, Having given
ynnraolf up bodily to old Burrill, a white-
lruii'ed, powerful old mulatto of twenty
years' experience, he leads you toa bathroom anil nuts you to boil. When you
nre somewhat soft he comes in and rubs

It Saved My Life
n
Is a common expression, often heard
from those who have realized, hy personal use, the curative powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. *• I caimot say enough
In praise of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do that, hut for its use, I
should long since have died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of Bleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
-without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to Bay that it
helped me at once. By continued use
thlt medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life. —Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Moss.
I have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely bolieve I
should have been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of tbo lungs,
lor which I bad almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved ray Ufa.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health.—Liazio

A meeting of the counoil of tho
board uf trade was hold this uftoruoun
to consider the statement said to havo
bocn mado respecting tho Sntitlioi'ii
Railway by the provincial secretory nt

was deemed bestito toko no notion until tho return of Mr. Chisholm, M.P.,

Mayors ami Mayers.
The mayors of Viotoria and Vancouver seoui to bo forever getting tliom
solve or others into ,hot wator. Tho
latest break of tho Vnnoouvor mayor
was to get himself tired off tho steamer
Premier. At tho last counoil meeting
the mayor of Viotoria refueod to put
a motion and left the chair. This 'ins
become a habit of his. While nt Nanaimo the other day he took sonic
orders for teas and coffees to bo supplied from his Victoria store. There
is a by-law in Nanaimo imposing a
licenso fee on commercial travellers,
the city collector, very properly applied to Mayor Fell for that feo. The
mayor, however, declined to pay, nnd
tho collector threatens him with nn
action.
Special Council Merlins,
The council held a special meeting
last night at 8 o'clock to discuss the
report of a statement said to have heen
made by the provincial seoretary on
the Southern Railway. The meeting
although generally known throughout
the oity did not seem to rouse much
enthusiasm as may be seen Irom tlie
fact that only four private citizens and
two gentlemen from the distriot attended. Tho mayor and all the coun-
ciUore were present.
His Worship on taking the chair
said: Gentlemon, this special mooting
of the council is called at tho request
of four councillors, arising out of the
report of certain utterances of the Hon.
John Robson in the Ottawa Free Press.
Aa it is the wish of the people of this
city and district to have railway communication to the southern boundary
any resolution you may bring forward
to express thnt wish, will be in order.
If you have several resolutions then
we had hotter go into committeo on
the whole to discuss them.
On motion the council went into
committee on the whole, Coun. Bonson
in the chair.
Coun. Curtis then read a resolution
and the clerk read two others, which
were laid on the table.
Hia Worship thought that resolution
No. 2 by Ooun. Elliot met the case exactly.
As there seemed to be no desire on
the part of the councillors to discuss
the different motions it wns generally
agreed to that tho following resolution
be adopted:
Moved by Coun. Elliot, seconded by
Coun. Shiles, and Resolved that we,
the mayor and oouncil of tlio city of
New Westminster, having Boon in tho
Ottawa Free Press, Victoria Timet, and
Mainland thiardian, n statement snid
to have beon made by tho Hon. John
Robson, provincial secretary of British
Columbia, as follows: " Wo aro satisfied to forego our wish for railroad
communication between New Westminster and the southern boundary,
though it would be a beuoDt to us"
We desire on behalf of the electors
and residents of this city to make
known to the government of the
Dominion and the press that suoh
statement is wholly untrue and that
the residents of this vicinity are unanimously in favor of railroad communication with the southern boundary.
Coun. Duncan said the object of ihia
meeting was to express their disai -'
probation on the statement uf the Hon.
John Kiibson. This matter affoctod
the whole district nnd it was the duly
of the council to notice it. The Hon.
John Robson would have it that tho
people did not want the Southorn
Railway, bnt the peoplo do want it.
The hon. uoutleniaii's statement may
not do much harm to tho road but it
will do very little good nud tho resulti-
tion, though drawn mildly, will cover
the ground nnd show the council's
opinion on the subject. The report
may not be correct, if not it won't do
the provincial secretary any harm, but
if he really made such a statement
then he has uttered what ia false. He
would take much pleasure in supporting the resolution.
The motion was then put and carried
unanimously.
The committee then rose and reported progress.
His worship resumed the chair and
on motion tho report was adopted.
Moved by Coun. Jaques, seconded
by Coun. Duncan thst conies of this
resolution be telegraphed to Sir John
Macdonald and the Ottawa Free Press,
and also that copies of it be mailed to
reeves of all municipalities in the distriot.   Carried.

Dawson vs. Skowes. This matter
coining up on a motion for tho discharge of the prisoner, it was held
after a long argument that an item of
interest amounting to 94:5!) would not
be supported, oa the promise to pay by
the defendent hnd been mnde without
consideration and under a mistaken
idea as to his legal liability. The
striking out of the amount, reducing
the claim to a sum under the lowest
amount for which such a writ would
bo issued, order was inndojfor the discharge. The ordor was made without
costs His Lordship holding that the
circumstanes fully warranted tho detention of the dofeddnnt apart from
tho difficulty ns to the umorint of claim.

Mayor Dickinson received tho following despatoh by telegraph Into last
night:
Ottawa, Oct. 21.—Mr. Robson says
report of his reference to Southern Railway in Free Press of 8th incorrect.—
Editor Inez Pkess.
During tho past fow dBys a great
mnny foolish stories have been circulated nbout tho streets by persons unfriendly to the provincial secretary for
tho purpose of showing tho motive ho
had in uiakiua Iho statement attributed tu bim by Iho Free Press. The
abov u despatch will make it necessary
now for these persons to invont some
theory tn explain why thoy havo
foolishly permitted their aiiimositiea to
run away wiih their better judgment.
There could ho only two wnya of accounting intolligontly for the report of
tho Free Press: Either it was not a
correct report, or the provinoinl secretory had gone crazy. For many rea-
aons, but chiefly for the sake of the
Southern Railway scheme, wo are glad
that the former suppoBition is likely to
turn out tho correct one.
