Tho blood of many Onniulian
soldiers calls for justico unci the
execution of Riol. Only the cowardice of a very short-sighted policy
pleads for his reprieve. Canada
hns to decide whether it will lio
ruled by judicial, reason or sfinti-
uiPiit.—Chicago News,
Having failed in his treasonable
undertaking, Kiel ought not to go
unpunished. Imprisonment or banishment he deserves. But to execute the death penalty for the political crime of treason, aggravated
by no circumstances of extraordinary wickedness, would be ah atrocity thnt probably will ndt bo perpetrated.— Chicago IHmes,
It is hardly to be presumed there
is iu Canada an English faction
bloodthirsty enough to demand a
hanging in preference to incarceration for life, especially as many
criminals dread the latter mode of
punishment scarcely less than they
fear the former. Let justice be
done with Riel, whatever the course,
This case seems to call for clemency
rather than demand severity.—Chicago Inter-Occfun,..
The Mormons. are bowed down
with grief. Flags at half-mast but
feebly express their sorrows over
tlieir lost "liberties." The worthy
gentlemen, each of whom insists on
his divine right to marry all the
women of an emigrant train, or the
inmates of an entire female seminary, are disposed to give up everything for lost. Among the buildings at Bait Lake City that carried
Hags at hulf-tnast on the Fourth
was the ollice of the Desert News,
The reason whereof is a sad. tale.
Thc editor of ihat papor, whicli is
the church organ, has been arrested,
and is likely to be convicted and
imprisoned; for polygamy. It is
gratifying, indeed, to learn that tb
him the Fourth of July is become a
hollow mockery. Every decent man
and woman in the civilized world
will rejoice with real gratitude at
tho admission at last forced from
Mormon chiefs, to wit; That tho
Mormons must flee from the country, abandon their surplus .wives, or
go to the penitentiary. The supremo court's latest decision, that
proof of cohabitation is not essential
out that the fact of a man living
regularly under the same roof witli
two or more women, u sufficient to
convict, has knocked the last prop
from under the infamous structure
which polygamy had built up.—
Oregonian.
Prof. Max Mueller of Oxford
University hus aroused the animosity of the German press by stating
in a published letter that Mr. Gladstone was a safer and better guide
for his country and the world than
Prince Bismarck. In his letter, which
speiiks for itself, aud was written
beforo the, resignation of Mr. Gladstone, Prof. Mueller saya: "England has good and experienced
-physicians, who can boar ahme
-silently, whilo the present crisis
lasts, nnd John Bull is too sensible
a patient to send for other doctors
or quacks because the old physicians
cannot at once work miracles. And
yet the old physician has been
silently working miracles. At home
he has infused uow, fresh, and
sound blood into the Iwdy politic.
Abroad, with hardly a look, from
hiin, tlio long estranged children
and friends have como forward to
dt.'fi.nd, if need he, tho old house
with their best lifo blood., Nover,
I boliove, hss England been stronger than dt present. There are still
others not quite estranged children
-—of the same blood, of the same
speech, and of the same will—not
only in the colonies, and in India,
but iu America, also. And unless
I am quite mistaken in* America
and Americans they will thunder
forth a fierce stop before a hair is
touched ou the groy head of the
old mother. In the German people
thero is also the same blood and tho
samo speech, but where is the
national willi Do Germans really
believe that the breed of the Gort-
schakoHs, .Metterpichs and Gambet-
Uib will produce fn future truer
allies than a kindred race which, so
long as tho world stands, has never
yet erossed swords with a German
army. Germany, too, has a good
physician, who sometimes likes to
Jin called tho honest broker, and un
honest broker is not the man who
would, with a light heart, risk an
old safely invested capital for
ephemera) interest, however high.
It is the German people that must
havo to think and to will again on
their own honk.

Delayed Telegrams.
New York, Avuj, 8.—The members of tho Canadian Press Association
arrivod horo from Boston early this
morning by a Btoamor of tlio Fall
River lino. Thoy wore mot at the
pier by Erastuu Wiman and E, M.
Barrett, of tho Canadian Club. The
party, including the Indies, numbered
about CO. They woro driven on (he
elevated cars about tho city. Thu
high bridgo and General Grant's tomb
woro among the points visitod.
Ottawa, Aug. 11.—The first voyage
of tho steamship Damara, of the newly-
established and Dominion subsidized
line between Havre and Canada, will
bring to the Dominion an excursion
pnrty of 150 members of the different
Parisian financial and commercial exchanges, who will visit all the leading
cities in Canada and the North-west.
The Damn™ is expected to arrive ut
Halifax at the latter end. of ih« month,
Mr. Onderdonk, contractor for the
British Columbia section uf the Canadian Pacific Railway, is here, He.
expects that thc last spike in the road!
will be driven early iu October, and
that the road will be a financial success from the very first. Only six
miles remain to-be completed before a
junction is effected with the section in
Eagle Pubs. Major-Gcnoral Middle-
ton will'arrive hero to-morrow. After
settling up with tho militia department he will proceed to British Columbia. It is understood he has been
commanded by the Imperial war office
to' mako a report oil the advantage of
the Canadian Pacitio Railway as a military lino, and to suggest improvements
in connection with the defences of
Victoria' and other British Columbia
harbors.
Lonuon, Aug. 15.*-Lord Chief Justice Coleridge was married this afternoon to an English lady named Amy
Augusta Jackson Law ford. . The wedding, ceremonies wore conducted privately, and an especial licenso was
granted on August 10th so that the
marriage could take placo any time of
day that the parties wished. The
government will utilize tho material
intended for. the Suakim-Berber railway in connecting the forts at Chatham, Portsmouth and Plymouth,
which will also be connected with the
great railway line*-, in order to provide ready transportation for troops in
case of necessity.
Dublin, Aug. 15.—In a speech at
Laugford to-day Davitt said he was
quite in accord with Parnell, and
would assist the hitter's candidates in
the canvass for the coming election.
London, Auk. 10. —A despatch from
Suakim states that Osman Digma has
forsaken his followers and tied to Kordofan. Tho result is that many sheiks
aro going into Suakim and offering
submission to the British commander,
Caiuo, Auk. 10,—Information has
beeu received here that civil war lias
broken out at Khartoum; that the
treasury has beon saoked, and that
El Mahdi's successor and other officials
have beon killed.
New Yokk, Aug. 10.—A London
cable says: An ingenious mode of
smuggling was discovered by tho custom officer-* at Hull. While some
supposed heavy beams of timber were
being unloaded from a ship, by means
of a crane, one beam struck tho quay
with, suoli force as.to split it open sufficiently to show'that it had been hollowed out and tho space filled with
tobacco and cigars. A customs officer
being ou hand at the moment immediately placed the crow under arrest
and seised the cargo. It was found
that all -the timbers on board ihe ship
contained similar articles. So neatly
was the work of concealment done
that .hud it uut boen for the accident
in swinging tho beams-on thc crane
the goods would liavo oscaped the
watchful eyes of the govornment detectives, and an immense sum would
hove been realized by thu sale of the
contraband nrticlos, aa several tons of
the stuff were consigned to a firm in
Leeds. The customs officers now believe that huge quantities of tobacco
and cigars have been smuggled into
England by the samo means, and are
engaged in a still hunt for beams of
timber recently landed at several other
ports.
St. pRTKiwnuno,- Aug. 17.—A portion of the Russian fleet will, hereafter,
winter on the coast of Finland, because of thu length of time that tho
hnrbor here is icebound.
London, Aug. 17.—Salisbury, it is
reported, will, Boon after going to
France, havu a conference with Signer
De Pretis, Italian prime minister. It
is reported that Italy desires to sand
10,000 troops into the Soudan to se-
ouru the Hed Scacusst from Suakim,
at present held by the British to Arabi
Buy, nlong whioh is most of tho Italian
possessions. The Italian scheme contemplates the control over Eastern
Soudan and thc use of Khartoum ns n
capital. Sir Henry Wolff, who has
beon sent ns special envoy fnnu England to Constantinople and Cairo ht
tho purpose of perfecting arrangements
for the future management of aflairs
and for thu purpose of bringing tho
sultan to terms, says it is believed
England will sign au agreement with
Italy whioh will leave tho latter powor
free to carry.nut her plans at outlined
abovo.       *
Drin.iN, Aug. 17.—Lord and Lady
Carnarvon started tu-dny ou their
tour, .through Ireland. Their first
stop was nt Galway, whore a large
crowd hnd assembled to meet the
now viceroy. People received the
visitors respectfully but, without any
oheerhtg. The lord-lieutenant received
addresses hore from the laborers' society, hnrbor commission- town commission, and citizens of Galway. In
replying to addresses hu said tho government dosirud to do its utmost for
thu prosperity of Ireland. He was
gratified to seo efforts of thu citizens
o( Galway to develop the resources of
their port, which he said wns two
hours, nearer America than any uther
important town in Ireland. Hu hoped
tu soo iu his own lifetime the ancient
prosperity of Galway •revived. He
regretted thu universal depression iu
thu labor market, which ho snid wus
owing to foreign competition, and
urged laborers to study the interest of
their eiimloyurs. He hoped that the
Irish tisiierios and othor industries
would be developed. In conclusion
ho expressed his conviction that times
would soon mend, liis remarks were
received witli cheers.

In a lute number of tho Toronto
Globe we find an nrticlo on tlie
change of the terminus from Port
Moody to Conl Harbor whioh ope
with this sentence: "The public nre
indebted to Senator Me limes for
huving fully exposed another ugly
job." From tliis the diameter of
the article may he judged. In wlmt
follows the Globe falls into several
palpable errors, und altogether
treads upon ground thnt can seiireely
he passed over with safety, With
a full knowledge of nll the circumstances wo are inclined to think tlie
Globe would not have ventured upon
this question.
If it he true, us reported elsewhere, that tho syndicate is ahout
to take over the completed portion
of tlie C. P. ll., wo may expect
some change in the trallic arrange-
incuts. Notwithstanding all the
protests that have been sent from
this province against thc extortionate charges imposed by Mr. Onderdonk, and the unsatisfactory character of the service, no tangible
reduction lias been made in the
rates, lt is now nearly two months
since the rond ought to have been
delivered up by Mr. Onderdonk,
and people liavo been waiting with
impatience for some relief from the
burdensome impositions. The syndicate cannot continue tliese vexatious rates without alienating the
sympathy and support of the people of tins province, and endangering tho success of their road.
»cfeiidlntf His Telegram.
In the last issue of tlie Guardian
we find a letter from Henatoi* Me-
Xlines containing an explanntion
and defense of his misleading telegram respecting the eontrnet for the
Port Moody round liouso. This
letter contains some statements of
considerable public importance, and
we place it verbatim before our
readers:
EDrron (JL'.utuiAN,—It haa just come
to my knowledge that in conset-uenco of
a, certain telegram I sent Mr. Lumlbom
of Port Moody, last May announcing
that a tender for the erection of a ten-
stall engine-house at Port Mooily bad
been accepted—lias not ouly created considerable dissatisfaction, bnt tlmt I have
been actually accused of-Bonding a fraudulent telegram in oiilqr to further my
private interests. I hdvo only to say
the accusation is a malicious falsehood,
and only worthy tlioso evil-minded creatures who conceived thu base idea, The
information I telegraphed Sir, Lundbom
about tho engine-house was obtained
from a high and reliable oiiid.il in thc
Department of Railways. I believed
then, and believe now, that tbe Government decided to accept thc lowest tender
for the building of an engine-house at
Port Moody, and not until tho Government were in the act of oflicially announcing the tact, did tbe Canadian Pacific
railway company prevail on them not to
award the contract. I am pained to say
that I beliovo the Department of Kail-
ways is absolutely under the control of
the (J. P. R, company—that the Department of Railways and thc Canadian Pacific railway company appear to be one,
uud both seething sinks of corruption.
The prevailing opinion throughout the
eastern provinces is tbat tbe main line of
thc C. P. R.- is destined to fall iuto the
hands of the Government within thc
next'two years—an opinion a combination of olrcmustuDccs force me to concur
lu. When that occurs—aud occur it
must—the Coal Harbor bubble will hurst
and vanish forever. Port Moody will
then assume her true position—a position
ber great natural advantages entitles her
to—to lio the western terminus of the
Canadian Pacific Kailway.
Tiros. R. Melons.
We are glad for the sake of (Senator Mclnnes that he is able to
put himself behind "a high and reliable ollicial in the department of
railways," for the telegram to which
ho refers did certainly have a most
damaging etl'ect upon his reputation.
The streets were full of the indignant mutterings of  men  who regarded   the   telegmui   as a fraud
made public   for   the  purpose of
booming the large estate owned by
Senator Mclnnes at Port Moody,
and  if the senator had  made his
appearance    about   that   time   he
would have met with anything but
a   nattering   reception.       Having
shifted   the  responsibility upon a
high government ollicial, we think
the public 1ms a right to know who
that oiHoia) is.    Moreover, .Senator
Mclnnes, himself it supporter of the
present administration, lias publicly
declared   that  the   department of
railways is a "seething sink of corruption."     Tliis is a most serious
charge coming from sueh a source,
nnd the minister of railways can
soarcely suffer it to pass without
notice.     Senator Mclnnes should
have an opportunity of establishing
this charge, which seriously ad'eots
the public interest, and of defending hitaself from the uow suspicion
which will undoubtedly come into
some minds that the failure of-his
Port Moody speculations may be
tho coloring matter in his spe-;'-.teles.
It is not beyond the recollection of
some parsons now living in this oity |
that Senator Mclnnes, while a
member of the house of commons,
used his influence to induce tite
Dominion government to chanj
the terminus from Port Moody to
Coal Harbor or English Bay. Then
he believed, or professed to believe
that Port Moody was not by any
means the best harbor ou the inlet.
Wo do not say the change of opin
ion is not the result of honest con
viction, hut we say that it is gen
erally attributed to the acquirement
by the senator of large vested interests at Poit Moody; hence the
clanger that people may ascribe his
grave accusation against the railway department to a similar mo
the. But we are afraid tho
senator's very sanguine expectations, as expressed in the concluding sentences of Ins letter, may fail
to be realized. He tells us tlie main
line of the 0. P. H. must fall into
tho hands of the government, and
then tiie terminus will be taken
back from Coal Hai-luu* to Port
Moody. Wo are of a vory different opinion. There is uo indication
of a collapse in the syndicate, and
if it did collapse in two years tliere
is no likelihood that a change of
terminus would follow. If the terminal works and the trallic are once
fixed and concentrated at Coal
Harbor or Knglish Bay, there they
will undoubtedly remain. Wo sny
this with the utmost assurance, and
we sny it in the public interest.
Senator Mclnnes has not heretofore proved a safe guide for speculators in terminus lots, and we are
persuaded tliat the "combination of
circumstances" and the consequences
he predicts will turn out to be quite
as groundless as the announcement
contained in the telegmui which he
now seeks to defend. On the
strength of that telegram somo persons dropped a good ileal of money
in Port Moody lots. We hope no
om; will commit a similar act of
folly on the strength of this letter.

A Good Suggestion.--It is related
of a certain college youth of brilliant
parts, who had just returned from Iub
Alma Mater, that ho was onu day com
{daining earnestly in the presence of
its family that it waa sometimes most
difficult fur him to conduct himself in
goud society with tho graco and repose
so much desired. "Why," he said,
with a most humiliated air, "if you'll
believe mc, I am so nervous and embarrassed uomuliineB that I don't know
what to do with my hands." The
youngest member of tho family, whoso
ears had caught tbo troubled sentence,
brought clown thu houso by remarking:
"Why donH you ivush Ihemt"

City Polios,—At a meeting nf tho
city co.uncil held last Monday night
Capt. CD. Grant and Mr. McBroom
woro appointed polico officers for thc
uity. There were 24 applicants for the
position. We havo no reason to doubt
that these two gentlemen will honestly
apply themselves to the duties of their
office, and wo hope that there may be
au impartial and thorough enforcement
of all city by-laws. It is whispered
that there is a groat deal of gambling
carried ou in some places in (ho city,
and there is no doubt but Indians still
manage to obtain Hi)uor unlawfully.
We hope the police may be ablo to
wipe out these und all other abuBea.
City Markets, -- We have often
buen requested by farm era to publish
u roport of the city market, but tho
difficulties in tho way havu hitherto
discouraged us. Thero seems to be no
uniformity iu tho ([dotations of different establishments in the city, and it
is impossible in some cases to ascertain
what fanners really may expect for
articles they may bring -to market.
To-dny we publisllo dotations Ae nearly
correct as they can be made. It should
bo remarked, however, that tho prices
vary a great deal according to the
character of the demand and supply,
If the supply is large, prices will full,
but if it ia not up to the demand, they
will go up. These quotations will be
carefully revised every week.
TnitKi; Men Drowned,— Laat Thursday morning, shortly after leaving this
"city, tlm Btr. Yosemite came into
collision with a fishing boat containing
7 Chinamen. The boat wob smashed
and 3 uf the men wore drowned, the
remaining 4 having been rescued by
the Yosuinitu's boats. The fog was
very thick ut tho time. Before tlio
fishing boat could be seen the Cliini-
inan began shouting, The engines
of tho steamer wero stopped at onco
aud reversed at full speed. The
Bteamer struok the boat, which was
crossing her bows, aud amnshed it
into splinters. Tho mon belonged
to tho British Columbia Packing Cu.t
cannery, and tho 4 who were rescued
woro landed at that establishment.
Tho screams of the Chinamen, and
tho crash of the collision were plainly
heard' by several persons in this oity.
It is supposed tho Chinamen had lost
their way in tho fog, nnd in tho excitement they must have lost thoir heads
as welt.
A Singular Action. —Last Monday
a soinowlint remarkablo caao came before the suprouie court at Victoria. It
is already known to moat of our readers that a syndicate was formed some
months ago to purchase tho Hastings
Sawmill Co.'s proporty at Burrard
Inlet in viow of tho terminus going
down to Cual Harbor. Major Dupont
was a member of this syndicate, and
induced Mr.. W. P. Haywaid to put
some $0,000 into tha sohemo. Mr.
Sayward seems to havo come to the
conclusion that he has buen made the
victim of some designing persons, and
that tho money he invested with suoh
excellent prospects hns beeu lost to
him. Ho conies before tho court,
therefore, nnd claimed that he had
been misled by Major Dupont nnd
ought to recover from him. Aftor
hearing the ov idetico of plf, the learned
chief justico came to tha' conclusion
that there wai no case. The jury was,
therefore, discharged, hut Say ward in
allowed, if ho clnmsi-s, to bring another actlorf for &,0uo*ir!iich he claims
to have loaned to Dupont.
Bluster.--A despatch from Washington to the Now York World gives
tho following statement from an American naval officer just returned from
South America: "All the Spaninli-
Americau nations despise ua, and lose
no opportunity of expressing thoir contempt. .1 know if thu Chilean government had consulted the wishda.or aih*
WMons of  sonlo-ot Its rtilita'ry arid
naval officers, that the alliance Which
Ecundor tried to effect would hnvo
beon mndo, nnd then we would not
havo got Santos out of Ecuadorian
clutches without a fight. In Santiago
thu people showed their dislike for us
in overy possible way. Their officials
openly declared that thu Chilean navy
could destroy ours in a three hours'
conflict, and that nothing would please
them better than u chanco to loot Sau
Francisco." This iB simply a chuap
kind of bluster. While the United
States navy is notoriously inefficient,
and thu defences of the country are
not suoh aa would resist attack from
an iron-clad fleet, tliere is not the
slightest probability that the people of
San Francisco will ever have to defend
themselves against Chile,
Evangelistic Mission.—The services hold in this city by thu Rev. Dr.
Graves have so far been very interesting and profitable. The inaugural
meoting in the Court House Wednesday evening last was so large thnt it
was necessary to find a more commodious place for thu following evening, and tho Methodist ohuroh was
secured. Ou Thursday afternoon he
conducted a most impressive and earnest prayer meeting in tho body of the
church, nud preached in tho evening
to a large congregation, frum the words
"Gather not my soul with sinners,"
in Psalm 20:0. Tho meetings wero
continued in the Methodist church on
Friday afternoon and evening. To-day
(Saturday) Dr. Graves will conduct
an afternoon meeting at 3 o'clook and
preach in tho evening at 7:30 in the
B&nie place. To-morrow (Sabbath) he
wiil hold an open air meeting near the
postoffice at 10:30 a. in. sharp; preach

■ Pout Moody, Aug 21.— Tho barque
Wylo, Capt. Brown, expects to leave her
berth ut tho railway wharf, Saturday
or Monday, merely to drop down the
Inlot to Hastings. She will there be
loaded with lumber for Shanghai,
China.—A largo party of men—all who
could possibly be spared from about
thia end of the railway line—were, by
Thursday morning's up train, despatched to tho front, up at Englo Pass and
the Selkirks, No doubt a tremendous
effort is being made to complete the
rail connection in that vicinity before
the mountain winter Bets in—or before
October.—Soma time, during Wednesday night, or very early on Thursday
murning, a burglary was oonmittod on
the shop or Mr. D. B. Grant. At all
events ample preparations were made
for the perpetration of tho crime.
Thero is a double-sashed window in
tho rear, lighting the back shop, 'On
tho platform outside, the thief had
piled boxes one upon another, so as to
make a rudo staircase. Mounting upun
this, he had let down the upper snub,
wliich, strange to say, was not even
fastened. Whether he then took alarm
and mnde his escape, or whethor he
entered and then retreated in disgust
at not finding any "hard cash,"*it is
difficult to say. Probably the former
was the case; for Mr. Grant misses
nothing whatover.—The railway trains
aro at last, getting into good habits.
The last three down trains were "on
time" to a minute.—Mr. Wm. Bison,
formorly uf New Westminster, hns
purchased and nuw occupies the two
storey building erected and recently
occupied by Mr. Alfred Williams; and,
for the last few days, he has liad
joiners at work fitting up the second
storey (late the school-room) as an
Oddfellow's hnll.—Of course, the smoke
is bad enough overy day and at nll
times of day; but on two mornings
within the current week, even as late
as six o'clock, the smoke and fog combined were so dense us nearly to equal
"a fog" of the other world's.eapital—
London, to wit. It was actually impossible to discern auy object whatever, even of the magnitude of the
largest house in tho place, at twenty
yards distance.- The latest social event
was a ball at Mr. Murray's, Rocky
Point, on the evening of Wednesday
laat.

Baiikkuvillk, Aug. 14.—The Bishop of New Westminster, Mrs. Sillitoe
and Mr. Polly left for the lower country laat Tuesday, aftor a visit here of
about twelve days. All the sorvices
hold by the Bishop were well attended.
Three of the young folks were confirmed last Sunday. During their
stay, his lordship and Mrs. Sillitoe,
aided by somo of our locnl singers,
gavo a concert for the purpose of raising funds for rofencing and otherwise
improving the cemetery. So far,
something ovor 800 has been realized.
Tho annual visit of tho Bishop is an
event eagerly looked forward to by
the church people hero, who are nothing loath to have thus an opportunity of contributing to tho funds of
the diocese.—Mr. Bowman, Mr. Tuok
and staff aro busily at work on the
topographical survey of gold.belt.—
Judge Harrison took his doparturo
from tho judicial capital of the district
to-day, not muoh regretted. He will
probably not bo seen in these parts
again until noxt summer. He succeed-
ed in distinguishing himself this summer by giving judgment (strangely
reaohed') in a very simple case, tried
and all but doeided against the plaintiff nearly a yenr ago. Two of tho defendants aro now the sufferers by the
delay. The story of how this decision
was nrrived at would prove interesting
reading to tho public, the provincial attorney-general nnd tho dominion minister uf justice, if any one conversant
with tho facts would tako the trouble
to write it up.—Kwong Leo & Co.'s
stores have been in possession of the
sheriff for n week; he has just released
his grasp.—No mining news of alining
interest.
The Steamboat collision.
The following additional particulars
respecting tho report of the official inquiry into the steamboat collision will be
read with interest. The report is from
the Colonial;   •
Capt. Devcrcaux, after citing tho provisions of the aet in reference to steamboat collisions and referring to the evidence, read the finding of the commission
as follows:
Wo examined in all tliirty-three witnesses, including the masters of both
vessels, and we find: "That this accident,
which happened on a clear day, was
caused through very faulty navigation on
the part of the steamer li. P. Rithet.
We consider that Ashbury Insley, master of the steamer R. P. Rithet, is the
person who is to be held responsible for
this serious accident.
"ft was proven in evidence that ten
minutes previous to the collision, Uapt.
Insley went to his lunch iu the saloon,
leaving the navigation of liis vesael in
charge of a young and inexperienced man
named Harry Ramwcll, when at the
time he had, according lo law, a 'properly certified mate' on board, and to whom
he should have given charge of thc navi-
5ration during his absence from the deck.
't is more than probable that had he
done aothisaccidentwould not have happened. So it appears that after the
master left thc deck the R. P. Rithet
_was steered well on the port side of the
-fairway channel,'and actually collided
with the Enterprise wheu the latter was
distant only 350 yards from the rocks on
her starboard beam, and the channel at
thia particular part is quite 1,000 yards
wide. This is in direct violation of Art,
21, Act 43 Vic, chap, 29, which provides 'that in narrow channels every
steamship shall, when it is safe and
practicable, keep to that side of the fairway or mid-channel which lies on the
starboard Bide of said ship.' Hail this
rule been followed by the R, P. Rithet
this collision could not possibly have
taken place,
"Under these cir-jumstauces we consider Ashbury Insley, master of the R.
P. Rithet, to be guilty of great neglect
of duty, and we recommend that liis certificate oa master be suspended for a
period of twelve months from date of
accident.
"We would also state: In our opinion
'tho conduct of the officers of both vessels, with the exception of the mate of
tho Enterprise, who was Beriously injured, Ib deserving of grave censure for
not making more active and determined
efforts to control tho excitement and
assist the passengers on the Enterprise.
There seemed to be no attempt to maintain order and authority, that at such
critical times is so necessary for the saving of lifo and property. In this respect
we would particularly mention Capt.
Rudlin, of the Enterprise, who we regret
to notice did not make any effort to get
back to his vessel end passengers after
he had been thrown on to the fore deok
of the R. P. llithet by the shook of the
collision, although there appeared to be
ample time and means of his doing so.
Wo, however, recommend that his certificate as master be returned to him, as
we do not consider him in any way to
blame for the accident."
Capt. Dovereaux said beforo leaving
he would refer to thc extraordinary order
given to tho mate, McLean- who stated
in evidence that on joining the vessel he
liad been given distinctly to understand
by Capt. Rudlin that he had nothing
whatever to do with the navigation of
the boat, and that he was disobeying
orders when he entered the wheelhoiiBo
of the Rithet, This placed him as a
mere dummy aa far as the navigation of
the boat was concerned, though he held
a proper certificate. There should be a
law in reference to inates in these inland
waters; they should be certificated as
pilots. Should an accident occur to the
master of a steamer on its trip the boat
would be virtually without any one in
charge.
Capt. Rudlin explained that tho way
the order was given waa that iu co-iver-
sation on joining the boat tho mato had
stated ho was unacquainted with the inland watorB, and as the Nanaimo routo
was a short one Capt. Rudlin told him
thot he would attend to thc navigation
of tho boat and the mate tn tfw froight.
This was all th- ufller that had been
!riven. Tliere was a chart in thu pilot*
louse for the time to pass certain points
and the distances to be left from shore.
Capt. Lewis hero stated that thoy had
a right to appeal to the minister of
marine from the finding of the commission, and he might take an entirely different view ofthe case. Until Iub decision was given their certificates wo.ild
remain suspended.
Capt. Insley thanked the commission
for their thorough investigation into the
oause, and expressed the opinion that
their finding was a just one.
Capt. Lewis said that now that the
verdict had been rendered he would state
that, in his opinion, and also that of his
colleagues, Capt. InBley was personally
not to blame in the matter; but it was
their duty to inquire into the cause, and
finding a point ot the law had been transgressed they rendered their decision
accordingly, lt was a duty from which
they all would have been glad to have
been relieved.

Rival Railways.
A Now York dispatch says: Officials
uf both the Northern Pncilic and the
Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific domed this morning's reports from Chicago that a controlling interest in thu
former road had been secured by thu
latter. Second Vice-President James
B. Williams of tho Northern Pacific
snid in response to an inquiry: "I
don't care to any anything about it ono
way or the other." Boing asked eithor
to affirm or deny it, ho said: "I suppose we would know if a purchaso of
that, kind had taken place. My impression is thnt tho story is made out
of wholo cloth."
A prominent Wall stroet railroad
man said: "This roport has created
intense excitement in i-ailrond circles,
but it ia pot generally credited. I
think it more than probable that the
Grand Trunk railway is trying to got
control of the Northern Pacifio, as a
sort of countermarch against its gruat
rival, the Canadian Pacific. Although
the Grand Trunk itself is but a poor
paying enterprise it has command of
unlimited money in London."

(! P. R. Trade Prospects,
Hon. Richard C. Baker, ex-minister
of justice for South Australia, who
arrived in San Francisco, eu routo to
England, on the last Australian steamer, was interviewed by the Eieaminer
ou the probabilities of a withdrawal
of the Paoifio mail stoamors; said he:
It is precisely upon matter relating
to this that 1 am now going to London.
I havo been commissioned by the Australian coloniea to go to consult with
the homo govornment relative to an
ngreoment whioh has been drawn up
by which the English-mail servico can
be lot to some Bteamship company.
Tho agreement referred to hns been
signed by South Australia, Now South
Wales, and Victorin, and I lmvo reason
to believe Tasmania, Quoenstown and
West Australia will also sigu it.
Whethor New Zealand will do so is
doubtful. The proposal is to pay
steamship companies so much pel-
pound for mail matter, The contract
will call for a weokly mail of 29,
30 or 31 days from Loudon to
Adelaide, The English companies
taking the mails via Sue/ receive
a subsidy of a million dollars a year.
Their contracts will expire in September, 1887. The new arrangement
would commence on thut date." Mr.
Baker added: "The Canadian Pacifio
had offered to provide a weekly English-Australian thirty-day mail service
via Vancouver Island for onu hundred
thousand pounds a year, and as the
coloniea were now paying twice that
sum it was possible tho Canadian Pacific would secure it. The probabilities
of their doing so would," he said, "be
increased if thu Canadian government
subsidized a lino of steamers between
British Columbia and Australia, which
ho understood it was intended to do."
C. A. Livingstone, Plattsville, nays:
"I have much pleasure in recommending
Dr. Thomas' Lcleotric Oil, from having
used it myself, and having sold it for
some time. In my own case I will say
for it that it is tho heat preparation I
have ever tried for rheumatism."
A Praiseworthy Scheme.
Lonuon, Aug. 14.—Booth, of the
Salvation Army, writes to the papera
that he hus a project for the formation
of un office of help and inquiry, with
headquarters in London, and agencies
in the provinces and principal cities
throughout the the world. Men speaking different languages and familiar
with haunts of vice and the traffic in
girls will be employed, ready to assist
all girls who wish to reform, and who
will aid the parents and guardians of
missing children. In connection with
tlio offico houses of refuge will be
established in London and elsewhere,
capable of accommodating 1000 persons
each, where girls will be provided for
and taught means of earning a livelihood, aud be restored to respectability.
In these homos the girls will bo under
restraint. The establishment of auoh
houses ef refuge will especially meet
tho caao of thousands of girls who have
beon thrown destitute on the world
thruugh the raising of the age of consent. Receiving houses will be established in Canada and the United
States. Mr. Morley has promised

Nkw York, Aug. 11.—A Pittsburg
special says: Pittsburg promises to create
a whirlwind in the New York real estate
market through the claim of Rev. W. lt.
Coovert of this city to Harlem Commons,
covering property valued at 8(100,000,000,
which, if Ins claim be established, will
he divided among one hundred members
of the family. Coovert will arrive in
New York on Friday, primed for the
biggest real estate fihgt in the history of
United States eities. He is confident of
success. The estate embraces the resting-place of Gen. Grant, but this would
not under any circumstances be disturbed.
The Harlem Commons Syndicate, lately
formed, aro heirs of the original patentees that preceded the lato Coovert.
Gen. Fremont is its president. There
arc some very prominent men in it. It
is claimed documents exist in Albany to
prove that a patent which wns made to
fivo Hollanders of 10,000 acres in Harlem in May, 10(10, by Gov. Nicholls, was
reaffirmed twenty years later by Gov.
Donegan, and the title passed to Luke
Coovert and never went out of tho Coov
crt family and never was transferred or
annulled. A Newcastle, Penil., special
says: About forty alleged heirs assembled in this city recently to consider the
advisability of pushing thoir claim to
the property. The meeting was presided
over by John N. Emery, who is tlie
great-great-grandson of Luke Emory.
Emery stated that in bis opinion the site
of Gen, Grant's tomb does not belong to
the heirs. They cannot establish any
claim to it, as the spot was, he thinks,
one of the highlands, while the property
claimed by tho syndicate was all under
water, beforo being filled in. In order
to test the ownership of tho property
claimed, suit will be brought by thc
syndicate against the Elevated Railroad,
which has one or more stations built on
the ground in question. The heirs to
the estate run into the thousands, and
Emery has letters of inquiry iu his possession from persons as far west as Washington Territory, south as far as Florida
and east as far as Maine. If tho syndicate gain Its suit thousands of suits will
follow.
Thomas .Robinson, Farnliam Centre,
P.Q., writes: "I have heen afflicted with
rheumatism for the lost ten years, and
havo tried many remedies without any
relief, I got a bottle of Dr. Thomas'
Eclectrie Oil, and found it gave instant
relief, md since then have had no attack.
I would recommended it to all."

John C. Black, Commissioner: Dear
Sir,—I have not applied for a pension.
I have often wanted a pension-often—
ever so often—I may say, but, inasmuch
as the only military service I performed
during thc war was in thc con federate
army, 1 havo always felt a delicacy
about asking you for it. Howevor, since
you have suggested the thing yourself,1
I feel strengthened. I haven't any
very pensionable diseases myself, bat
I can furnish a substitute — a man
who Is just simply a chaos, a museum of aU the. different kinds of
aches aud pains and fractures, dislocations auti malformations there are;
a man who would regard "rheumatism,
piles and sore eyes" as mere recreation
and refreshment after tho serious occupations of his day. If you grant me the
pension, dear sir, please hand it to Gen.
Hawley, United States Senator- I mean,
hand hiin the certificate, not thc money
—and ho will forward it to me. You
will observe by his postal card, which I
inclose, that he takes a friendly interest
in thc matter. He thinks I've already
got the pension, whereas I've only got
the rheumatism; but I didn't want that;
I had that before, I wish it were catching. I know a man that I would load
up with it pretty early. Lord, but wc
all fcol that way sometimes. I've seen
the day when—but never mind that;
you may be busy; just hand it to Hawley—the certificate, you understand, if
not transferable. Vory truly yours, ,

authority say about Intoxicating Drinks?
CONDENSED FOR THE STUDY OF THE PEOPLE.
Sir Matthew Half, Lord Chief .Tub*
tiee of England, said: "By duo ob-
Borvation extending over 20 years, I
have found that if tho murders and
manslaughters, the burglaries, nnd
robberies, tlio riots and tumults, and
other enormities that have happened
in that time, wero divided into 5 purls,
4 uf these have been the issues and
products of excessive drinking—-of
tavern nnd alehouse drinking."
Lord Chief JuBtiee Oolpridgo said
"I cau keep uo terms with a vice which
tills our jails, that destroys tho comfort of homes nnd the pence of families
and debases nnd brutalizes tho peoplo
of these islands." "There is scarcely
a crime that comeB before me that is
not directly or indirectly caused by
strong drink."
Lord Chief Baron Kelly said: "Two
thirds of the crimes whicli oome before
tho courts of law of tills country are
occasioned chiefly by intemperance."
Judgo Patterson, of Norwich (Em*.).
addressing a grand jury, said; "If it
were not for (his iliiii!;iii», you and I
would have noftiing to do."
Judge Anderson said: "Drunkenness is tho most fertile source of crime,
and if it could be removed, tlio assizes
uf this country would bo rendered
more nullities."
Judge Wight mnn says: "1 find in
my calendar that comes bofore me one
unfailing source, directly or indirectly
of most nf the crimes that are coin
mitted—intemperance."
Mr. Justico Hawkins, speaking t<
the grand jury of drunkenness, said
'Tt was a vory serious matter, and he
could not express ton strongly his
opinion that both thoso who indulged
in tlio harmful and pernicious vice,
und those who oucouiaged it, should
be put down with a strong hand."
Mr. Justice Den man, at the Surrey
nuixesiii 1882, said: "I don't know
* * * that any judge, can hotter
discharge his duty than hy again and
again calling the attention of iho gentry
of tho country, as well ns ihe inhabitants generally to this fact, thai the
groat bulk, I might almost say lhe
whole of the offences of violence which
take placo iu the counties of this land,
aro directly ascribable fo the habit of
drinking to excess."
The Recorder of Dublin, tho Hon.
Fred. R. Falkiner, Q.C., in 1881, said:
"I have been for a whole week trying
cases such ms no Christian judge ought
to have to try—-eases of outrage and
violence in this oity, overy ouo of
whicli originated in public houses, The
drinking system of Dublin ts responsible for 3 sentences of penal servitude
and 7 heavy sentences of imprisonment
whicli I had to impose, varying from
12 to 24 calendar months. T marked
tlio evidence iu every case, nud every
ono of thom began in a public liouso.
It is tho drink system nud thp drink
alone that leads to all this misery and
crime and sorrow."
Mr. Baron Dawse, of Dublin, iu
charging tho jury iu 1881, said: "Ho
found that drink was at tho bottom of
almost every crime committed in Dublin. Even in casos that had im apparent connection with drink nt all, if
closely iu vest igatud, as ho himself had
done in many cases, they would be
found to have their origin in drink."
Sir Thomas Chambers, Q.Oi, M.D.
and magistrate of the central criminal
court, London, says: "I am iu it posi
tion, of course, to see and to fool the
mischief of intemperance, as administering the criminal law at the central
criminal court for a long series of years
and my experience only confirms and
very many years, that if we could ab
solutely put an ond to the vice of intemperance in this metropolis and in
other great towns in tho country, we
should put au end to nearly alt thi
crimes of violence which are brought
before tho public tribunals."
Mr. Fred Hill, lato inspector of
prisons in England, says: "I am within the truth when I state, as the result
of oxtensive and miimte inquiry, that
of 4 cases out of 5 when an oll'enco has
beer, committed, intoxicating drink
has been one of the causes." Equally
definite testimony conies from the
State of
NKW YORKj U.S.A.
Tiio late eminent Judgo (Judy, who
died being upward of HO years old, do
clarod in a public assembly, "that the
greater portion of the trials for minder and assaults and batteries that
wero brought into court since his entrance on.the practice of law, nriginat
ed in drunkenness."
The board of police justices of tho
city of New York, says: "We arc fully
satisfied that intoxication is the onu
great leading causo which renders the
existence of our polico courts necessary."
Governor Dix, speaking of the whole
State, said: '-Intemperance is tho undoubted cause of 4-fifths of all the
crime, pauperism, aud domestic misery
of the State of New Vork.' Tho bureau
of statistics of labor, appointed by the
WASHAQHUBBTT8 LEGISLATURE
to undertako an investigation with
reference to the percentage of crime
resulting from thc use of intoxicating
liquors iu the commonwealth, thus
concludes their report; "Tlioso figures
paint a picture at onco the most faithful and hideous of tho guilt and power
of rum. Men and women, tho young,
the middle-aged, and the old, father
and son, husbnnd and wife, native and
foreign burn, tho night-walker nnd the
mnn-slayur, tho thief and tho adnlturor
—all testify to its ramified nnd revolt-
in« tyranny, 'therefore, the result uf
thii investigation, iu view of tho disproportionate magnitude of the ox-
nlutivoly rum oll'oncca, and considered
in connection with the notorious tendency of liquor to inHutno and enlarge
the passions and appetites, to import
chaos into the moral and physical life,
to level the barriers of doconcy and
aolf-jrespect, and to transport, its vie
timH into an abnormal and irrespou-
nible stato, destructive and degrading,
calls for earnest and immediate attention at the bar of tho public opinion
and the public conscience of Massn-
chttietts."
WEy next will be the expressed views
of physicians in thoir associated capacity, The succeeding articles to close
the aeries will be on thu amount of
intoxicating drinks consumed, tho cost
to the publio, and tho duly of pro-
foised Christians to the temperance
utilise. Should another ba deemed
desirable, setting forth the true position and responsibility of the moderate drinker it will be furnished.
Wm. Kent, M, D.
African I'll IHI Mills.
Any whito man who visits the fow
tribes in Africa that eat human flesh
is likely to have a hospitable reception,
ami is certain to find himself among
natives who, in their intelligence,
arts, and physical and moral qualities
nre not equalled by many of the native tribes. This fact, indeed, is truo
of man-oaters tho world ovor, notwithstanding the popular impression
that cannibalism characterizes only the
lowest levels of savage lifo. It wits
truo in Columbus' time, when ho wrote
to Queen Isabella that tho cannibal
Carriboes filled tho native* of Hayti
with abject terror. The word cannibal
signifies a bravo or valiant man, aud is
derived from tho namo by which tho
Carribees called themselves. A few
hundred miles northwest of Lako Albert Nyanza, on the banks of tho river
Welle, lives a great tribe whoso cannibalism is the most pronounced of any
of tho natives of Africa, They ate
the Monbuttus, a red-skinned race,
physically lino specimens of manhuod,
and far superior to tho black tribes
around them in arts of war or peaco.
They inhabit a beautiful, fertile country, where forests alternate with rolling downs. They engage in agriculture, aiui human llesh, though a frequent, is not a regular urliclo of food
excopt among tho wealthier families.
Sehweinfurth, who lived among thom
for sovoral months, says thoy are not,
like many African tribes, childish in
speech aud In their processes of
thought, hut that tbey understand
reasonable questions and give reasonable answers, The specimens of their
pottery, decorated with ornamental
figures, that aro now in the Ethnographical Museum of Berlin, are said
to equal the bost examples of Egyptian
art. Thuy are ingenious wood-carvers,
and thc greatest house -builders in
Africa. One roofed building described
by SclnVeinfurth,, built of timbers, was
150 feet long, IiO feet wide and 50 feet
high and held an audience of nearly
1,000 persona,
It is characteristic of cannibal tribes
to conceal their practices as much as
possible from those not addicted to
them. Neither Sehweinfurth, Junker
nor Oasati had seen the Monbultus on
many occasions preparing or eatiiij
human flesh. During his months of
residence among thom, Sehweinfurth
on just two occasions saw women of
the thu tribe preparing human llesh
for consumption. He camo upon them
as they wero boiling sundry arms and
logs, but his presence was unexpected
and unwelcome, and ho was invited to
go elsewhere. Iu conversation, how
evor, lhe Monbuttua mado no secret
of tlieir practices, ol which, indeed,
thoro were abundant evidences in tho
heaps of carefully picked human bones
thnt were scattered about nll their
settlement. Their victims are the
prisoners that they tnke in the wars
they are almost incessantly waging
with oue or another of the tribes about
thom. "Tho cannibalism of the Mon-
buttUB," says Sehweinfurth, "is unsurpassed by any savages in the world.
But, with all that, the Monlmttus aro
a noble race of men, who display a
certain national pride, and are endowed
with intellect and judgment such as
fow Africans can boast."
Stanley thought he found evidences
of cannibalism among somo of the
Congo tribes, near Stanley Pool, when
he lirst descended tho river, nud Iub
suspicion has sinco boon amply confirmed by his associates, who have
founded white stations among tho Ban-
gala and at the month of tho Aru wind
river. The Congo natives, liko the
Monbuttus, try to hide from the whitaB
the evidences of their practices.
Next to the Monbuttus. the Africa*
.nu« inoai notorious as man-eaters art
the natives of Novo Uodondo, iu Por-
tu guess Angola, whom J. Mouteiro
described as the finest raco of black,
in every way that ho hnd met iu Africa. He said thore wns no question of
the superior physique and mental qualities of this cannibal tribe, und he
thought their superiority might tic'.dally
be tho result of tho horrid custom by
whieh they supplied themselves with a
larger amount of animal fuod thau
other tribes used. It is far moro likely,
howevor, that their superiority, instead
of being tho result of caunibalisin,
mado it possible for them to be cannibals by enabling them to prey with
impunity upon weaker tribes. The
greatest excesses of cannibalism have
always beon found among tho highor
savage tribes or nations like the ancient
Mexicans and Peruvians. Tho most
encouraging fact with regard to peoples addicted to this custom is, that as
they rise toward the middle and uppor
levels uf civilization thoy voluntarily
abandon the practice. If the missionaries have accomplished nothing moro
among the islands of the Pacific, it
would bo to their lasting credit that
they have induced many thousands of
the natives to give up this praclico.—

* A story is told of a poor soldier who
having one day called at the shop of a
hairdresser who was busy with his customers, and asked relief, stating thnt
he had staid beyond his leavo of ah*
sence, nnd unless he could get a lift
on the coach, fatigue and severe punishment awaited him. The hairdresser
listened to his story respectfully, and
gave him a guinea. "God bless you,
sir!" exclaimed the soldier, astonished
at the amount. "How enn I repay
you? I havo not 111 tig in the world but
this," pulling out a dirty piece of paper
from his pocket. "It is a recipe for
making blacking. It is thu best that
ever was seen; many a half-guinea
havo 1 bad for it from tho officers, and
many bottles have I sold. May you
lm able to got something for it to repay you for your kindness to a poor
toldier." Oddly enough that dirty
picco of papor proved worth hnlf n
million of money to tho hairdresser.
Il was no less than tho recipe for a
famous blacking, thc hairdresser being
a wealthy gentleman, lately deceased,
whoso manufactory is one of the notabilities ol the oity of London.
