During two or threo years, beg'iu-
uing nix or sevon years ago, the
Rural New Yorker gave much time
to an endeavor to find out what
sized pieces and how many eyea to
the piece would give the best orop
of potatees. The result was in favor
of largo pieces with from two to
three strong eyea, and this is the
kind of seed wo hnvo used ever
since, Tho seed is selected from
medium or large, sized potatoes;' the
seed end is sliced off nnd the potato
cut into two or three pieces according to size and number of oyes. * If
the eyes ore close together we sometimes cut out several eyes, so ns to
give the remaining two or three a
large proportion of flesh. Given a
strong eye or so it is deemed of importance that the eyes and resulting
shoots should be supplied with ample
food until roots from the shoots enable them to seoure food from the
soil. Wo regard the flesh aa holding much the aame relation to the
shoot as the first leaves or cotyledons
to the tiny root of the seedling
plant. Thoy nourish the root until
it con act for itself, Tho shoot is a
stem or plant eutting and from it
issuo both mots and other stems,
and it is from the latter alone that
the tuber (itself a stem) forms. Now
how many shoots should grow on a
hill] In other words, how many
eyes should be planted I In the
Bural't experiments above alluded
to, as wiU appear from an examination of baok numbers, as high as ten
eyes (separate) wero planted in a
hill; The yield .in weight was, in
many trials, as great as when fewer
eyes were planted, but the quantity
of marketable potatoes was much
less, the number of small potatoes
being far greater. We also tried
whole aeed both of largo and small
tubers, and, going to the other extreme, separate eyes of small pofa-
'.oes, and evon the peelings each
having an oye or so. As above
stated, the results led us to prefer
from two to three strong eyes, cut
from fair-sized potatoes, dividing
tlie flesh as equally as might be.
We want strong eyes and strong
shoots supplied with all needed nourishment until they oan support
themselves, If s shoot from a small
piow of flesh ia broken off or frost-,
bitten or injured in any other Way
before roots have Ixkbi formed, the1
shoots perish because tho supply has
lioeii crxliimsti'-d, not having made
on,, connection with the soil, and a
missing hill is the consequence.

A couple of these niagnifioont
game birds can be aeen at Mr. W,
Whittaker's, Johnson street, having
been mounted for a gentleman in
thia oity. Die birds were brought
from one of the islands of Washington territory, where they have be-
ooine so plentiful as to lie almost a
nuisance. The Ohinese pheasant is
a game bird of brilliant red and orange plumage, about the site of Uie
English malo pheasant, and villi
even a longer tail. It ia very prolific and increases rapidly. In Oregon and Washington Territory, although the birds have only been introduced during the past few yeara,
they have multiplied to an enormous
extent. Being a fine game bird,
would it not be worth while to introduce them into this province 1 In a
few yean they would provo splendid
sport, and the ooat of introducing
the breed would bo trifling.—Colonist. Tho suggestion of our ootemporary ia an excellent one, and it
might be worth while for the people
of the mainland to consider whether
it would not bo worth while to get a
lot of these birds into thia part of
the oountry.

MoumiAL, May 9.—At the seventh
annual meeting of the C. P. B. Co.
held to-day, tlu balance sheet of the
affairs of the oompany at December
31st lut together with the usual statement roUting to the business of the
put year were submitted. ' Tbe groes
earnings for the year were tUtfOt},-
412.80; the working expenses were $»,-
102,294.04, and the net earnings were
93,601,11716. Deducting the fixed
chan.es accruing during the yesr, $3,-
250,203,81, the surplus was $263,854.-
85. The working expenses amounted
to 09.81 per cent, of the gross earnings
and the net earnings to 30.19 percent.
The St. Lawrence bridge and the different sections of the new line referred
to in the last annual report, with the
exception of the main line from Port
Moody to Vanoouver, were not completed in timo to contribute to any but
the results of the: last three or four
months of tho year. Reference was
made in the last report to Uie unusual
severity and extraordinary snow fall
of the winter just ended.' Thia so retarded and crippled the business of the
country and ao greatly increased the
expense of working the railway during
the first 4 months of the year that the
net earnings at the date of that report
ha'd fallen nearly $400,000 below those
ofthe corresponding period of tha
year before.

Skiuena, V. S. consul at Viotoria, E
C, ia in the eity, He saya the opium
rings in tho Northwest still carry on
their operations. "Thero are iu Victoria" said Mr. Stevens " thirteen
opium refineries whose pioductis valued at about $1,250,000. The value
of this opium in the United States
would be nearly t?,000,000. Niow, it
la absurd to uy lhat thia amount of
atnff la uaed in British Columbia, and
custom house reports at Port Town-
send fail to show that duty was paid
en thia amount of opium, so the natural and moat probably correct inference
is that it is smuggled into the jr. S.
There is a large forco of cuatom officera
at Port Townsend and the revenue
cutter ia always at their disposal, still
smuggling goes on seemingly without
their knowing of it"

provementa aimed at by thoae who
were interested in the passage of the
proposed by-law were either public, er
they were private internets, or perhaps
both. I an not aiiflciently posted hr

In a recej-it Issue the San Fnin
cisco I'list. gives iitti'iiimrcr to thesn
remarkable words: ''As Mrs. Filling, who murdered her husband,
has not passed tho period of her attractiveness, the grand jury should
savo the money of tho city and time
of the courts by ordering hor turned
leoee. It is a farce to try a woman
no older than she is." The woman
referred to abovo was imprisoned for
shooting hor husband; and the
crime was committed in broad daylight, and she freely and boastingly
admitted herself to bo the author of
it Society in San Francisco, ovory
one knows, ia bad enough, but not
many persons supposed it had reached the condition implied in tho
words bf the above paragraph.
A strong effort has boen made in
Washington to shut out the Canadian Pacifio and other Canadian
railways from competing with American transcontinental roads. The
committee which had charge of the
interstate commerce bill was urged
to introduce such additional clauses
as would prevent the 0. P. It. and
the G. T. E. from carrying through
freight between eastern and western
points. The lobby has not been successful. The committee could not
see any way of shutting out these
roads without at tbe same time injuring American interests and also
injuring American railways in whose
interest the proposal was mado; and
it was considered of great importance that the competition of the
Canadian railways should not be
disturbed. This will bo very welcome news to all shippers and consumers; and there is muoh satisfaction to Canadians particularly in the
confession that the international
carrying trade cannot safely be interfered with. The American senate has given the president power to
declare by proclamation that international trailic shall virtually cease
unless Canada waives her claims in
the Atlantic fisheries; but the exercise of this power may. produce
somewhat'tho same result as when
a person cuts off his nose to spite
his face. Tho Americana themselves would very soon rebel against
the adoption of such a far-reaching
polioy, even if it seemed necessary
to satisfy the few impecunious and
turbulent fishermen on the coast of
Maine.
Gabriel Dumont, who was Riel's
commander-in-chief during the last
" unpleasantness " in the northwest,
is already engaged in the patriotic
work of sowing tho seeds of discord
among the French Canadians of
Quebec. Dumont wns really the
front of the rebellion. , He was ono
of the deputation of four who went
across thb border to Montana for the
purpose of inducing Rial to return
to the northwest and become tho
champion Of the half-breeds, and in
this mission he was successful. This
man is delivering addresses to tho
Frenchmen in the province of Quebec, giving a statement of tho origin
of the rebellion, the grievances under whioh the half-breeds were laboring, and detailing the chief incidents in -the military campaign.
Riel, having aocepted the invitation
of the people ofthe northwest, assumed'supreme authority in all mat-
tert. Dumont several times urged
the adoption of a different course
from the one pursued,, but without
success. It was Dumont's plan to
carry on the fight with a great deal
more eaergy than' Riel would consent to. When the volunteers rc-
treated, as they sometimes did, Dumont wanted to follow aud annihilate them; but Riel refused to ! take
advantage of such incidents. If
Dunoht's account is ito bo relied on,
(and in most respects it is probably
not far from the truth), ho is a daring, fearless man, and cordially hates
anything that is not liberally flavored with French. This hatred be
takes no pains to conceal, i and the
expression of it finds a good deal of
response among the people whom he
is addressing. It is to'be feared
that evil will result from the utter-
ances of this man. There lias never
been very great cordiality of feeling
between the Frenchmen of Canada
and (hose ol other nationalities, and
ot Into years the lack of cordiality
has been devoloping into real animosity.' The Frenchmen of Quebec
•re almost entirely Roman Catholic
and Jesuiet-ic, and are, perhaps,
more eubeervient to the priesthood
than the people of any other coun
try. Thia is partly the reason why
French Canadians have not assimilated more extensively with the rest
of the population. A large number
of them give allegiance first to th*
pope, secondly to tlieir own nationality; nnd there is thon very little
left tor the British crown. Besides,
tbe Frenoh are proverbially impulsive and excitable, and such a tire-
brand ea Dumont may do ail immense smotnt. of mischief among
these people. Dumont -scoots the
idea of Kiel's insanity. He showed
no signs ol insanity during the
•monkteproMding the rebellion, al-
thouijh-he was decidedly eccentric,
■nd had'itrango notions oh the subject ot religion; but Dumont has no
doubt at all that he was perfectly
responsible for his actions.

The Rev. Mr. Brick, Churoh of England missionaiy stationed in the Peace
River district of Athabasca, in a sermon in St, Ooorgo's ohureh last evening said thero had been a rabbit famine
for the past two seasons and that the
largo garao had nearly nil disappeared.
The Indians were in consequence in a
starring condition, and unless relief
were speedily furnished many of them
must soon die. Ha instanced coses
where they kept body and soul together on boiled leather and moccasins.
Many were now subsisting on horae
flesh, and soveral coses of cannablism
had' been reported. In one case a woman had been shot and her body devoured hy hungry savages. These were
non-treaty Indians, but ho thought
the government should do something
to keep them from starving.
Jabesh Snow, Gunning .Cove, N. S.,
writes: "I was completely prostrated
with the asthma, but hearing of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil, I procured a bottle, and it done me so much good that I
got another, and before it wai used, I
was well. My son was cured of a bad
cold by the use of half a bottle. It goes
like wild-fire, and makes cures wherever
tt is used."

My children have boen peculiarly sub-

Peotoral. 'Phis preparation relieves tho

cures the complaint.—David G. Starks,

I havo used Ayor's Cherry Peotoral
In my family for many years, and
havo found it especially valuable In
Whooping Cough. Thai medicine allays
au irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to the lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.

The X. M. 0. A. debating society
last night discussed whether or not tho
immigration of Chinese to British Columbia would be beneficial to the provinoe at large. The debate lasted three
houn and wai brilliantly and elnquont-
ly sustained on both side,. When put
to a vote it was decided the provinco
, oould worry along somehow without
uie " heathen Chinee."
Exoept where the wharves and warehouses are situated on Front stroet,
"tho water side is bate of any railing or
other protection to prevent people
bom falling into the water on a dark
night Several persons have fallen into the water during the past month,
though, fortunately, the results wore
not serious. It is advisable that a
railing should be ereoted at all unpro-
Ueted spots and thus prevent what is
'■ ante to occur sooner or later—a fatal
accident
Thii morning a transfer man proceeded to the ferry wharf with a
stage containing a family and household
laraltore, for tho purpose of boing ferried to Brownsville. At the slip ho
was informed tha.K. de K. was having
* -urafctn-*»» WI* -ud it would
be Mveral hours before the trip could
be made. The man said that unless he
oould raaehBrownsrill.bolore lOo'clock
a would bo useless for him to start today, ss tha distance he had to go was
considerable. It seems too bad that
these improvements an not made during the night, or at a time when the
regular tripe ofthe ferry will not be
interfered with.

Thursday, May 10.—Conference
opened at 9 a.m. Bev. J. W.-Fatter*
boh asked to bo locatod after the present year,. A number of memorials
were presented from various districts,
and referred to committees. The suit
ject df missions wua discussed at considerable length, the need of forming
new missions being strongly urged.
Rev.'. Thos. Scouler, of St. Andrew's
church, waa introduced and addressed
the conference briefly, In the afternoon, tlie report on Sunday observance was presented, and tho conference'passed a resolution protesting
against the proposed replacing of local
trains*between Westminster and Vancouver. Rev. Thos. Haddon, of St.
Paul's church, was introduced, and
briefly addressed the conference.
A Four-Legged Bin].
Mr. Archie Mclnnes. steward ot the
penitentiary, has a freak of nature in
shape of a turkey that has astonished
all who have boen fortunate enough
to see it. Some weeks ago he gave a
setting of turkey eggs in charge of an
old turkey, which, stuck to its task
with so much fidelity and persevere nee
that all the eggs but one brought forth
young gobblers. Thinking the ogg
might contain a bird lacking the necessary strength to break the. shell, Mr.
Mclnnes broke it and found a fully developed young turkey with four legs,
four wings and two tails. Unfortunately the bird was dead, and aU
chance of observing how' this' prodigy
would havo conducted itself on reaching maturity, has been lost. Mr. Mclnnes has embalmed the freak in a
bottle of glycerine and will bo pleased
to exhibit it to all friends.
Conference Missionary Mr cling.
Lost night the annual conference
missionary meeting wos held in tlio
Methodist churoh-, in this city, Rov.
E. Robson, president of the conference,
in the chair. After devotional exercises, tho first speaker of j the eveuing
was-Rev. T. Crosby,:ahairman -git. the
Fort Simpson district, and missionary
tothe Tsimpaeans, who in a most
practical address illustrated the difli-
culties Methodist missionaries have 1 >
encounter, through the indifference
and unsympathetic action of government ollicials. Methodist missions to
the Indians, ho said, wero almost despised by the government, yet the missionaries of the Methodist ohurch wero
the' ben who had taught the Indians of
the north the arts of civilisation, loyalty
to the laws and throne of the British
empire, love to the church of Christ,
and abiding faith in God. 1200 of tho
northern Indians to-day are loyal
members of tlie Methodist church.
Presents-of mtimiy had not been employed by Methodist missionaries tn
induce the Indians lo become member.}
of the church. The teachings of Chrin ,
expounded and explained by Metl
dist missionaries, hud brought nboj
tho reformation. Mr. Crosby closed
with several anecdotes of praoUq:il
piety arousing at once tlie sympathies
and prayers of tho congregation forthU
success of the Indian work.
Rev. W. H.' Fierce was the next
speaker, describing in a speech of absorbing interest the needs of tha mi-*-
sion field, 2Q0 miles from the mouth
of the Skeena River, The hundreds
of Indians surrounding the forks of the
Skeena and still further inland wero
asking for Methodist missionaries.
Mr, Pierce's nddross was a powerful
appeal for help, full of humour and
pathos.
Rev. J. Turner, of Kamloops, then
addressed tho meeting, giving information of the rosults of mission work in
and around his district. Tho report
was an excellent one, showing the
work to be in a most prosperous condition.
During the evening several gospel
hymns were sung by members of tho
Chinese mission in this city, who wore
accompanied by Miss Clarke on the organ. There were 22 Chinese present,
and their singing was wonderfully correct, the words being pronounced so
plainly as to bo easily understood by
the audience. This mission is in charge
of tho Misses Oiarke, late of London,
Ont.,; nnd nothing oould better show
its success than the performance of tho
class last night. Many of these Ohlha-
men havo been converted from heathenism, and several of them are members of the church.
A Collection was taken up dii'ring
the evening in aid of missions, and
the sum realized amounted to about
928, which is a slight increase over
last year.

Bobbery ana Attempted Murder.
Yesterday afternoon a man named
(■forgo Hirnio, who olaims to bo a
farmer from Peterborough, Ont., arrived from Vancouvor. After having
dmiRT at a hotel near the station ho
took a stroll round town aud in the
courso of his walk mot with n man
named Miohael Carr. Tho pair had a
couple of drinks together and became
quito friendly, so much so that on
being invited liirnie Went to Carr's
shack to spend an hour, On entering
the cabin Birnie found three men
there, one of whom was cooking.
The visitor was invited to join them at
the table, bnt declined ti Mt until ft
dozen eggs were purchased and fried,
Birnie paid for the eggs, and when the
moal was ready partook of the repast.
Just as they were rising from the tablo
the four men attacked Birnie, nud, after knocking him down, dragged him
into a bedroom and robbed lum of his
money. Three of the men then left
tho houso leaving thoir guest senseless
on the bed. As soon as Birnio was
ublo ho loft the shack and informed
tho polico of tho occurrence, and was
advised to get out a warrant for tho arrest of the men. One of the parties
implicated in the robbery isHerondon,
who was connected with the larceny
case for which Patrick O'Brien got 6
months imprisonment at the last assizes. The name of the third man is
Dickson, an old jail bird, but the
identity of the fourth scoundrel has not
transpired. Constable Pearce met
Uerondon, Carr and Dickson and told
them ho would have tho whole party
in jail within an hour, The men then
went up Front street to the Indian
rancherio where Horondon said he had
a boat. Carr was anxious to avoid tho
police and wished to put tho river between himself and the guardians of the
law. Horondon and Dickson volunteered to paddle their friend across to
Brownsville aud put him on the right
trail for Semiahamoo. The three got
into a canoe belonging.to an old Indian woman and paddled out until
about 00 feet from shore,when Heron-
don deliberately capsized the canoe,
nnd, along with Dickson, swam ashore,
leaving Carr struggling in the water.
Carr could not swim and was nearly
drowned before he managed to seize
hold of the canoe. He then called to
his friends on shore to come to his assistance, but they only laughed at him
and made off. The cries of tho drowning man were heard by somo persons
on Front Street who went to tho rescue
and were just in time to eavo his life.
Carr was taken to a hotel near by,
nud, on being identified by constable
Pearce as oue of tho men who had robbed Birnie, was removed to the lockup. The police are on the lookout for
tho would bo murderers, but it is very
probable they are now safe in Uncle
Sam's country.
About 4 o'olock this afternoon the
polico received information to the effect that one of tho men was hiding
under tho roadway on Front Btreet.
Constable Carty procured a warrant
and is making a thorough search as we
go to press.

Michael Riley, alias Carr, alios
Micky Fry, charged with assaulting
Oeorge Birnio.
Oeorge Birnie, sworn, said: I came
iuto town on tho noon train yesterday
and put up at a hotel near tho station;
I wns perfectly sober; I went up street
aud dropped into a saloon and had a
drink; I sometimes get slightly intoxicated; then went back to the hotel and
there met the prisoner and entered into conversation with him; he said " we
have a shack up hero; take a walk up
there with me;' I went with him and
found a man cooking there; he aaid it
would be well for mo to have dinner;
he had no eggs, so I gave him 50 cents
to buy a dozen; he got them, and we
ate dinner together; two other men
were preaent and dined with us; I
nover saw them bofore; we discussed
the future prospects of Westminster;
as soon aB tho meal was over the whole
four piled on to mu and drugged me
into a room where they tore my clothes,
beat and robbed me; the men thon
left the shack.
To the prisoner—You aro the man
who took me to tho shack; you wore
not cooking.
John Fitzgerald, sworn, said: About
six o'olock last night I met Birnie coming out of the shack; a man followed
him aud coaxed him to go back; Birnio
did not wish to go, but was finally persuaded; about ten minutes afterwards
Birnie came out of the house covered
with blood; I asked him what was the
mattor; he said some scoundrels had
robbed him and tried to choke him;
about two minutes later the prisoner
came out of the house and left in great
■ haste. .The names of tlio occupants ot
I tho houso are Heronden and Dublin
Dickson.
Constable Pearce, sworn, s-iid: Bir*-
nio came to me and said he had beon
robbed; wont to the shack but did not
find the men; met them later and
cautioned them to be careful, as a very
serious charge had been laid against
them.. About 11 o'clook I was inform-
od a half-drowned man was in Hogan's
saloon; went down and found the man
to be Uie prisoner, and took him to the
lookup; he is an old jail bird.
Mr. Moresby gave evidence to the
effect that the whole four men were
scoundrels,
His honor reserved his deoision in
ihe case, but it is very probable the
accused will be sent up for trial.

VicioniA, May 9.—Tho Rey. Father
Letnuens arrived from Olayoquot
mission station this .morning, nnd reports that tho Indians are greatly excited over tlio mysterious disappearance of the head chief of the Muulm-
let tribo. Tho belief prevailing Ib that
he haa been murdered by the hostile
tribes above Hesnuiat. The missing
chief visited the Maeohat tribe, carrying some fish hooks asked for, and has
been missing ever since. The Indians
desire an investigation, and the rev,
father says an outbreak will not occur.
The Indians are also greatly troubled
over the Behring Sea dispute. Though
employment in this industry has been
their chief support, they refuse to accompany tho vessels into the sea for
fear of seizure. Father Lemuens reports thnt the mission is prospering,
and that the Indians nr« gradually giving up all savuge practices.-- Advices
received from Comox to-day state that
an 8-foot seam of coal has been struck
in the Union mine by the miners of
of Dunsmuir & Son, who will have
1000 miners ut work in those mines in
tho course of the year.

Oil on the Waters.
Admiral Olouc, of the French
navy, states thnt loss than half a
gallon* of oil an hour seems, sufficient
to secure j;he largest ship from being
boarded by the waves. It is strange
that the sen-smooth iqg effect of oil
should just be attracting general attention, since it was known in
Pliny's time, and Benjamin Franklin tried—unsuccessfully—to bring
it to notice.
