current Events ami Opinions.
A volume tins recently been published in England wliich may serve
ns a useful tract for members of the
peace society. Ifc is a history of
Knglish taxation and taxes, and a
parb of it is devoted to showing, as
nearly as possible, tho exact cost of
each war into whicli tho English
peoplo havo been led. Thus the
war with the American colonies is
jotted down as costing £97,000,000,
while that of the Spanish succession-
is charged with £50,000,000. If
tho loss of life and the indirect suffering incident to theso struggles
uro considered, and added to the
waste represented by their cost,
those who condemn Mr. Gladstone
for his long-suffering statesmanship
in pi-eventing war betweon England
antl Russia may find in this historical aggregate of misery the key to
his course.—Boston Advertiser.

VOLUME 28
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. O.- SATURDAY, SEPTEMBER 26, 1885.
NUMBER 26
The question is now being considered in the federal courts whether congress meant in the restriction
act to punish all attempts at evasion, or only those made by merchants. The presumption is, that
congress was in full possession of
its faculties when it passed that
law. To punish persons only who
wore merchants, .nntl who it was
supposed in the nature of things
would be very few, and allow tho
perjury of the in-rushing Coolies to
puss unnoticed, would be an act not
so much of insanity as of idiocy and
imbecility. It is beyond controversy tbat congress, had no such intention. To attompt to establish
that ifc did, in terms, make this ridiculous exception, no mattor what
its purpose was, is just the sort of
strained criticism that has such a
tendency to bring the courts into
contempt. Congress lyfcs, already
beon compelled to ijidignnutly deny
that it meant in its legislation what
was attributed to it in somo of the
courts. It Imd to puisne the unusual course, by re-enactincut of
declaring that whon ik mude provision for the admission of men-hunts
it was not guilty of tho incredible
folly of including peanut-venders
and fish peddlers. If this thing is
curried on much longer, it may conclude to linle up by the nupe of the
neck somo of thoso who have beon
trying to lay at its door crudities,
absurdities and childishness that
would be resented by a gathering of
ten-year old boys. We assume that
congress is a representative of the
average intelligenuo of the country.
It is not the fool or the clumsy
bungler that somo legal lights pretend to believe it is. It knows
what it is about just ns well as its
presumptuous oritics. It is singular in this connection that it is only
on laws relating to the exclusion of
the Chinese, and in tho federal
courts of this city, that it is supposed to commit glaring mistakes
and exhibit not only au ignorance
of words but of the construction of
the English language.— S. F, Bulletin.
Mr. Farnell, in the speoch which
he delivered iu Dublin on Mondny
night, opened up trenchautly aud
sharply one of the greutost problems
of the future—tho question whether
the limits of legislative conciliation
have boon reached in Ireland. The
programme of tho member for Cork
put forward as an election manifesto
— for the speech was almost avowedly
a direct appeal to the constituencies
—hns far moro points of resemblance to a Tory manifesto than to
any policy of which Liberals can
approve. His predilection for protection is in itself a strong disclaimer of one of the lirst principles of
liberalism. Mr. Faniell is known
to resent very much what he calls
tho unfair competition of Scotland
aiul England with Irish industries,
lie does not anticipate that the
time will over come when Ireland
can successfully compete with Grout
Britain in every department of
miiuufacturing industry, but ho
thinks that a certain measure of
protection would do much to revive
the woollen and other textile industries of the country. If the lower
classes had to pay more for thoir
food and tlieir clothing iu order
thut Irish industries might flourish,
the farmer and the laborer would iu
a very short timo nsk themselves
whether tho iliinin wns worth the
cimdle. Whatever attitude they
might take, it cannot bo too clearly
made known that neither tho whigs
nor the radicals of Hcollund and
England nre prepared to join or to
conciliate a party wliich has for one
of its avowed objects the destruction iu Ireland or thn free trndo
system of tho United Kingdom. If
this is to be one of the tasks committed to u '-ingle chamber sittiiii;
in college green, the sooner the issue
is sharply defined the better. . Thnt
single-chamber sohemo in itself
would not create much hostility
among Scotch and English radicals,
who nre far from being believers in
the right-divine of peers, ii it were
not for the ominous circumstance
that Mr. Parnell does not intend to
leavo to the people the free choice
of their representatives. He claims
for himself the right to consult With
the electors who they should select,
and he probably justifies his demands by pointing to the wonders
of discipline he bo glowingly referred
to on Monday night.. He could not
have said to this man go and to the
other come with absolute confidence
that the one would go and the other
come unless the men so ordered
were entirely at his merey as regards their political future. It is
one thing, perhaps, to claim thi*
right of "consulting" with the constituencies while the house of commons is unwilling to grant legislative independence to Ireland, and
another to insist upon it if ever that
legislative independence is conceded;
but habits grow upon men, and Mr.
Parnell, after many years of dictatorship, is not likely to abandon his
pretensions to absolute supremacy
merely because he hnd succeeded.
On the contrary, he would, unless
human nature is capable of completely reversing itself, insist upon
larger powers and a freer hnnd;
and the people who for years have
obeyed his veriest nod would probably givo him as muoh as he nsked
for. We come, then, to the conclusion that legislative independence
for Ireland, as understood by the
junior member for Cork, means nn
Irish dictatorship, with Mr. Parnell
us the supreme arbiter of the nation's destinies. What he would do
with so large a grant of power he
has already told us. He would
establish protection for Irish industries ; he would extend the Hoaly
clauso of the land act; he would
abolish unjust evictions, landlord
oppression, and rack-renting; and,
finully, he would mako every farmer
his own landlord on "fair terms."
These are demands whioh may mean
little or nothing moro than the state
of things uow in existence iu Ireland ; but, on the other hand, these
smooth words might be so interpreted as to lend to a civil war, and to
a vast destruction of life and property. The interpreter, as wo have
shown, is to be Mr. Parnell himself,
and we doubt whether, when this is
generally perceived, his own followers wonid be so submissive aa they
are uow. Whether thoy were or
not, we turn awny from Monday's
speech with the conviction thut for
the present at least there is no common ground between the Parnellites
and tho liberal party. — Glasgow

Tobncco-A Parable-
Then shall the kingdom of Satan bB
likened to n grain of tobacco seed,
which, though exceedingly small, being
cast into the ground, grew and became
a grant plant, und ipread its leaves
rank und broad, bo that huge and vile
worms formed a habitation thereon.
And it came tu pass, in the coune of
time, that tho sons of mun looked upon
it, and thought it beautiful tu look
upun, and much to bo desired to make
lntls look bi>{ and manly. So they put
forth their hands and did chew thereof.
And some it mado sick, and others to
vomit most filthily. And it further
came tu puss that these who chewed it
became weak and unmanly, and snid,
"we are enslaved, and can't coast) from
chewing it." And the mouths of all
tlium tliat wero eiwluved became fuut;
nud they were seized with a violent
Bpitting; nnd they did spit even in
Indies' parlors and iu the hmuu of the
Lord of Hosts. And tho saints of the
Must High wore grently plugued thereby. And in the course of time it came
to pass thnt others snuffed it, and they
were taken suddenly with fits, and
they did sneeze with a great and
mighty sneeze, insomuch that their
oyes woru filled with tears, nnd they
did look exceedingly silly. And ethers
cunningly wrought the leaves into
rolls, and did set tire to tha one end
thereof, und suck vehemently at the
other end, and did look very grave and
calf-like; and tlio smoke of their torment nsconded up forever, And thu
cultivation thereof became a great and
mighty business in the earth, and the
merchant men waxed rich by the commerce thereof. And it came to pus
t lut thn sainU of the Most High dollied
themselves therewith; evon the poor,
who could not buy shoes, nor bread,
nor bonks fur their littlo ones, spent
their money for it. And the Lord wns
grently displeased therewith, nnd snid,
"Wherefor thia waste, nud why do
these little ones lack bread and shoes
nnd books! Turn now your fields into
com mid wheat, nnd put this evil thing
fur from ynu; und be separate, nnd
defile not yourselves nny more, and I
will bless you and causo my face to
shine upun you." But with one accord thuy nil exclaimed, "Wo cannot
cense from chewing, snuffing nnd puffing—wo aru slaves. "—Christian Store*
All Iho peoplo uow living in the

Satiinlnv Morning, Sept. 'ib, wm.
A few (lays ago The Columbian,
in noticing the approaching salo of
the household gooda of Senator Mclnnes, mentioned that the family
intended going eust for the purpose
of allowing the boys to obtain a
thorough education. The Victoria
Times and Colonist seem to assume
that the senator doea not intend to
rcfci»'n, antl they urge upon him the
propriety of resigning his seat ia
tlio senate. We believe Senator
Mclnnes does not intend to make
his home in tlie east. It is understood that so soon as the purpose of
his going to Toronto lias been accomplished, he unci his family will
roturn to this country. It may bo
a question, however, whether an
absence of four years should not be
sufficient ground upon which to request tho resignation of a senator.
For a fee of sixty dollars a liquor
license 1ms been issued for the new
mining camp at Similkameen. As
an undoubted and indisputable fact
tho shooting scrape between Louson
and Newland resulted as a direct
consequence of the issue of that
license. This case, before it has
been finally disposed of, will cost
tho government probably not much,
if any, less than §500. Wc have,
therefore, the account presented in
this shape: Receipts, one license for
one year, §60; expenditures, for apprehending Louson, bringing him to
this city (including constables' fees
and travelling expenses), keep in
gaol until assize court, attorney's
fees, proportionate cost of grand and
petit juries, etc., say $500. Tho
balance against the saloon is $440,
and it lias nearly a year left in
■which to prepare the way for more
outrages which may cost the country ten times §500. This is a commercial view, and docs not touch
thc moral phase of the question at
nil. '
Tlie Case of Poundmaker.
A writer in the Week brings forward u plea on behalf of this Indian chief tVh'6 has been sentenced
to three years' imprisonment for tho
part he took in the rebellion.
Poundmaker was found guilty of
treason-felony on the ground (1)
that he had signed a certain treasonable letter to Kiel; (-.)(1that he was
at Battleford is when it was plundered; (3) that he was presont at
the Out Knife Hill fight* and (4)
that he took part in the capture of
tho teams. But this correspondent
pronounces the evidence upon which
it was sought to establish these
charges extremely doubtful, and
mentions many circumstances which
afford ground for believing that
Poundmaker may have been innocent of evil intention throughout
the whole affair. Poundmaker did
not sign the letter to Riel. The
letter was written by a man named
Jefferson, and as the Indian chief is
by no means familiar with thc English language, it may have contained sentiments to which Pound-
maker would not assent. There is
no evidence beyond this man Jefferson that he had authority to sign
Poundmaker's name. The evidence
of Poundmaker's responsibility in
tho othor matters is no less questionable. Against tho supposition
of his treason and felony it is mentioned that ou all occasions he
manifested very great anxiety for
pence, and everywhere used his influence to prevent bloodshed and
tho destruction of property. He
admits being present at the battle
of Out Knife Hill, but that was a
pnrt of his own reservation, and it
is claimed that ho was there in obe*
tlienco to tlie general "order that all
tribes were to go to their reservations. Poundmaker declares that
he urged his people not to pursue
tho volunteers, nnd his declaration
is corroborated by reliable white
men who were present. Pound-
maker's general attitude towards
the whites was cordial and friendly.
Ho cannot bo proved guilty of any
savage net, and it is undoubtedly
true that he treated his prisoners
with kindness, and allowed them to
go back to their friends. It is suggested that an appeal be made for
the releaso of tbis Indian upon theso
grounds. At his trial Poundmaker,
who is ignorant both of our law
and our language, had only this to
say in his own behalf: "Everything
I could do was dono to stop bloodshed. Hnd I wanted war I should
not now be here; I should be on
the prairie. You did not catch me;
I gave myself up. You lmvo got
me because I wanted peace." These
words, if truo, are surely a good
defence. Thoro seems not to be
any satisfactory evidence that they
nre not true.
The $48,000 Loan.
It is already known that a proposal will be made to the people of
this city shortly to give tho council authority to borrow $48,000, but
there may be some who do not understand why this loan is asked.
Probably before many weeks thc
city will be asked to furnish proof
satisfactory to the 0. P. R. authorities that, on completion of the
branch railway, the §37,000 promised as a bonus will be forthcoming.
It will not be sufficient for the
council to reply that, the squares
will be sold and will realize a sum
sufficient for that purpose. There
is no absolute certainty about the
selling of tho squares, or about the
sum they will bring. Probably
very few citizens doubt that the
sale will take place, or that the
squares aro worth a great deal more
than we have promised for the
branch line. But tho syndicate
may doubt both and may manifest
an unwillingness to proceed with
construction until further proof of
our ability to pay is made manifest.
It lias seemed to tho city council
best, therefore, to obtain by temporary loan the amount necessary
to satisfy nil demands of the O.P.R.
syndicate the moment theso demands como to us, and there will
then be nothing to prevent the construction of the line as soon as the
•oute has been determined and thc
surveys approved. Tlw conditions
of the square sale were that only
one-half the purchase money was
to be paid down, the other half
being allowed to remain on mortgage for six months. In order to
secure §48,000, therefore, inside of
six months, it would be necessary
to sell property worth 896,000. It
is believed that tho sale should not
take placo until the ■work of constructing the branch lino has actually begun, because city property
will then be moro sought after.
But if construction will not begin
until the payment of the bonus is
assured, and if the bonus cannot be
assured until tlie squares are sold,
it is manifest that some other means
of meeting thc case muat besought.
Tliis means is a temporary loan, to
be paid oil' from the proceeds of
the sale of tlio squares. It ought
to be possible to obtain from the
banks, or even from private sources,
the sum required upon a fair interest, and the loan need not run more
than a few months at most. An
arrangement could bo made to draw
the money as required, nnd to pay
interest only on what is used, and
until the principal has been repaid.
If a portion of the squares wero
put upon the market when construction begins, quite possibly a
sum nearly large enough to cover
the entire bonus might be obtained
at once, and the nmount to be taken
from tlie banks would be proportionately small. But it will not do
to tnke any risks in a matter of this
sort, because tlie delay of even a
few weeks might make a great difference to us. Nono of us would
like to repeat the experiences of
last winter, when for nearly two
weeks it was impossible for steamers to reach Port Hammond from
this city, and mails and passengers
and freight were brought round by
Burrard Inlet. Wo want the branch
completed early in January at least,
so that if the river happened to be
closed, as it often is for a week or
two, we shall haw uninterrupted
connection with tho great commercial highway. It will be necessary
to take a vote of tho peoplo upon
this loan; and we hope if any objection is going to be brought
against it, it will be brought uow.
Don't lot us jeopardise the whole
scheme by thrusting forward objections at the last moment when it is
too late to meet them.

Congenial Predictions.—Mr. Jas.
Murno returned from n trip through
British Coiumbin last Saturday. He
informs the writer that there is a perceptible improvement in the avenues
of commerce and trade in the British
towns, and is uf the opinion that by
the first of tho year thero will be a
goneral revival of business throughout
tho northwest. With the completion
of tho Canadian Pacific in October
next, will be the inception of thu tide
of immigration uf sturdy, industrious
and energetic Canadains, who will
flock to the Canada of the Pacific coast
to grasp the many opportunities which
await the followers of the mining and
the lumbering, the fishing and the
sealing, the farming and the dairy industries, all of which are as yet iu ti
primitive state. It does not require n
person gifted with a prophetic foresight to seo the era of unprecedented
prosperity that the completion of the
Canadian Pacific railway will open to
the people uf British Columbia and
the northwest. The many thousands
of acres of rich agricultural and valuable timber Innd which await the arrival of the precursor—the Canadian
Pacific railway—to the development of
this grent northwestern territory, will
soon he populated with a prosperous
people.—Maine Journal,

Kclectric Oil afforded almost instant relief, and two bottles effected a perma

(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
Barkerville, Sept. 18.- His Lordship Justice Walkem arrived in town
on Sunday lost. He was accompanied
by Mra. Walkem and daughter. All
thu flags in town were Hying nt topmast and the reception given the judge
by his old friends was a very cordial
one. Court sat next day. There
were only two coses on the calendar—
the one a case of larceny against Mow
Sow, a Chinaman of Quesnelle, who
confessed guilt was sentenced to 0
months in jail nt hard labor; in tho
other case ngainst ono Charles Humphreys of Soda Creek, the grand jury
returned no bill. This case had been
sent up by two justices of the peace,
but being really a dispute as to the
ownership of property claimed by
Humphreys and taken by him in broad
daylight in presence of a witness, tho
judgo instructed the jury that it ought
never to have been sont up as it was.
In their presentment the jury referred
to the urgent need of a new jail being
built and also a new hospital, instead
of repairing the old one. They nlso
gave a worm welcome to Mra. Walkem
on this her first visit to Cariboo, the
scone of the trials and triumphs of hor
respected husband in ear';. - days. Tho
judge nnd lady were serenaded by tho
band on Tuesday evening, as wore Mr.
Jas. Reid, M. P., and Mra. Reid, who
were also among our visitors this week.

The Farwell: Difficulty.
Some little timo since, oue of the
Dominion special constables in the
district of Kootenay, uf the name of
Ruddick, arrested a whiskey trader
within tho forty-mile belt of railroad,
inside of which the salo of liquor is
prohibited. Thero appears to lmvo
been something nut altogether straignt
about tho transaction. At any rato
the whiskey man had tlio special constable arrested undor n warrant uf
Judgo Sproat, tlio British Columbian
magistrate nt Farwell, for stealing the
liquor.' Now the Dominion constables
in (lie belt aro under the orders of G.
Hope Johnston, comuiissionor nf tho
peace, This latter gentleman considered that, if ono of his own men was
tu be tried, ho hnd as good a right to
try him as Judgo Sprout. Accordingly, on the appointed day, after tha
judge hud taken bis scat in court with
all due formality, tho commissioner
entered und set up his tribunal at the
opposite ond of the room. Tho judge
tried the prisoner uud found him
guilty; tho commissioner tried him,
too, nnd found liim not guilty. Then
the provincial constable advanced to
lead Ituddicl; oil' to jail and the Dominion constable stood up to defend
him. After a short but exciting contest, during which the judge nnd the
com mission or were eaeh of them arrested several limes and released, the
provincial party prevailed, and Mr.
.Johnston ntid oue of hia constables
wero conveyed to durance vile, where,
according to the Intest information obtainable, they aro still languishing.
Col. Herchimor went to Farwell Sunday, tho 0th inst., to bold an investigation into the recent, conflict between
the Dominion and provinoial authorities at that point. Wo Imve not heard
whether G. Hope Johnston is yet out
of the vile durance into which he was
eust by the British Columbia police,
but it strikes ub that there will be
more fun over his case than one could
agitate a palm troc at. The Dominion
police claim action under the Publio
Works Act, and tho British Columbia
police probably under tho statute of
91 Henry flth, that no cure which is
worse than the pain need be endured,

GLADSTONE'S MANIFESTO MAKES A 8ENSATI0N
London, Sopt, 19. — Gladstone's
manifesto, the most Delphic utterance
he ever made, has proven the most
successful pamphleteering of hia life.
Thai document tv-is- secretly issued to
hia political colleagues ns early as last
Mondny; its first perceptible effect
waa a palpable rlmpsodimeiit botween
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain, Lord Hartington and .Sir Win. Vornon Har-
courti These most powerful leaders
are next to the exPremier himself in
the Liberal party. AH these are ambitious men nnd they had buen pulling
apart. Each wns taking u large following nlong. Tho Radicals were
going with Chamberlain, the Whigs
with Hartington, nnd Hnrcourt was
endeavoring to hold the Moderates
together. The Liberal party was being
rent to pieces. Tho manifesto put ti
stop to the ripping, nnd the diverging
triumvirate nt onco sot to work to replace thu stitches, and with eaoh effort
came closer together. To-day, n week
only having elapsed, the Liberal pr.rty,
in Great Britain at least, is n solid
unit. Chamberlain may be said to be
the most rebellious leader in the whole
Liberal party. Beforo Mr. Gladstone's
utterance,
. I'HAMHKHLAIN's RADICAL CAMPAIGN
tour included the city of Glasgow,
where no doubt wus entertained that
he would repeat his pronounced independence, but the orator spoke in
Glasgow nfter he had perused tho
manifesto, and his speech displayed a
practical abandonment of his independent radicalism, and adoption of
the policy of opportunism, and so it
has been with Lord Hartington and
Sir William Vernon Harcourt. They
have also indicated complete submission to Gladstone, and have become
opportunists. Thoro aro two explanations to these remarkablo submissions.
No one doubts that if these three leaders had followed the courso they had
mapped out for themselves, the Liberal
party would hnvo been dismembered.
It was protty generally thought that
Gladstone wns tired of public life, nud
Imd decided to remain out of it. He
was implored to reconsider this determination, and assume management of
the present campaign, fur tho party's
success in this campaign wns essential
to the continued existoncc of the Liberal party as a pnrty, and absolute
unity was tho requisite of buccosb.
Mr. Gladstone demanded submission
as tho price of his leadership. It is,
of course, possiblo to suppoB0.-.ihat
Chamberlain, Hartington tind*' Hnrcourt consentod tn drop their differences out of puro desire to accomplish
tho success of their party ns a whole,
and to obtnin this result pay Mr. Gladstone's price, but un duubt can be entertained thnt each ono of these throe
men have been ambitious to succood
the
(IRANI) OLD MAN
in tho leadership. Ctrcuinstances havo
demonstrated that tho party will at
present accept no leader but him, and
that without hiin restoration to power
is impossible. Tho supposition is that
Mr. Gladstone has consented to lead
his party back to power, and is determined after its lodgment thore to ro*
tiro permanently. Thia would affurd
a most reasonable explanation of the
conduct of tho throe submissive lenders, for in this case thoy would bo
playing for a stake worth thoir while,
In this latter event the leadership to
attain would he thnt of a united pnrty,
adhesive with power, a thing immensely different from fractional success, Mnny things go to shew that
tho latter supposition is the correct
explanation of tho turn affairs have
taken. In the opening suntences of
his manifesto Gladstone uses the following significant statement: "It will
not be possible for mo to appear iu the
new parlinment nfter the (irst session."
by Mr. Gladstone that he intends, if
victorious, to confine himself to tho
work of forming n ministry, and after
remaining iu oilieo long enough to
assure thn successful work in u of bis
established governmental machinery
to retire permanently to private life
It is everywhere apparent that the
ex-premier's effort has secured a marvellous and instantaneous restoration
of unity in tho Liberal party, and has
given it fighting trim. It is thoroughly revivified. Its political agents in
tho country already report better prospects, and the obliteration of dissension and consolidation on single candidate:'.

of the City and Lake Kailway Company, No. 102 Canal street, and explained by ono of its patentees, John
T. Wilson.
The box generally resembles iu external appearance nu ordinary railway
fare-box, but differs from it materially
in its workings. It not only serves
as a depository for the customary
nickels paid by the passengers for
transportation, but it also makes
change.
Thero are two openings in the top
of tho box, one being for the reception of fares and tho othor for the
making of change. It is this money-
changing apparatus that is an interesting and most valuable novelty.
For instance, if the passenger desiring to puy fare should offer a silver
dollar to bo changed he would not
hand it to tho driver, but would drop
it into tho box through an oponiug
marked "cliango." The dollar would
a,u into some inner recess, but at the
same moment a half dollar, a quarter
dollar, two dimes antl a nickel would
appear in a small basin iu reach of
the passenger, who would thus get
his clutugu and I hen drop his nickel
into tlie place for fares. If a half-
dollar should be offered for change, u
qmiriur-dollnr, two dime** and a nickel
would bo returned by the higenious
mechanism. If u quarter-dollar wero
offered the change would come out in
thu form of twti dimes and a nickel.
A dime put in for -change would
bring forth two nickels, If, by mistake, a nickel should bo dropped into
the change hopper it would not disturb llio tbo interior arrangements,
but would pans through into tlm basin
and bo returned to tlio passenger.
Of course, tliiu automatic mechanism
would not givo change for bnnk notes,
as thu principles of its operations depend on the weight and sizes of the
coins whicli, on entering thn box, puss
through holes proportioned to tlieir
respective sizes, aptl then press upon
levers which open their onlices aud
set free thu correspond ing coins which
nre to como out in change.
There are also on the side of the
box, under gloss, four dial plates tittod
with hands of indices, which mark the
amounts of money iu the cliango department. Oue dial plate shows tho
number uf half-dollar pieces, another
gives the quarters, a third shows tlio
dimes, ami a fourth tho nickels. When
a oar starts out the change box must
be furnished with n proportion nf coins
of tho denominations mentioned, aud
as change is made, and as these are
successively dropped out, others must
bo put in their places. These dial
plates shuw what is ou hand nud obviate tho necessity of examining the interior of tbo mechanism.
Tho apparatus is exceedingly ingenious nnd appears to operate with
entire accuracy and satisfactory readiness, nnd also saves tho driver of thc
car from having to handle the money.
While nothing but notual use will
provo tho practical value of the invention every indication seems to declare
it a 8Uccesi.~-.tf, 0, Picayune,

WHAT   18   DISEASE, AND   WHENCE   DOES
IT ARISE 1
I answer—Disease is anything and
everything that vitiates the blood, or
obstructs the normal circulation, or
disables an organ to perform its proper
functions, and that it arises in tho nervous system. Tho remote causo or
occasion may arise from without: from
personal contact, as syphilis or itch;
from food, and liquid in excess or pernicious in quality; from alcoholic beverages; from the atmosphere, absorbed
through tho lungs or skin, ua malaria
and contagious disenses; or from sudden changes. Or from within: from
hereditary taint, as scrofula, consumption, erysipelas, or syphilis in parents;
from retained secretions from skin,
lungs, livor, and kidneys; or from violent emotions, fear, or over-active
imagination, etc. But the proximate
cause of disease, in all caseB, "physical
or mental," says Dr. Huff, "is a disturbance of the proper distribution of
the regular balanco of electricity in tlio
system. And the nerves aro tho primary seats of disease.1'*
But of nil causes of mortality arising from disease the greatost are a
close, damp, poisoned atmosphere, personal tilth, irregularities and excesses,
especially the abuse of tho nervous
system arising from tho gratification
of animal passions and appetites, often
followed by one of tho most terrible
and loathsome diseases known to humanity, that never is and nover can
bo wholly eradicated from the system
(Job 20,11), but continues its fcivagOB
to tho third and fourth generation.
So soon as the plastic material furnished through the stomach aud tlio
blood to tho vital powers to replace
that which has already done its duty
is incompatible or injurious, the necessary vital procosses are seriously impeded; the vital functions arc weakened; the even balance between the
life building up principle and tlie
death, destroying principle is materially disturbed in favor of tho latter;
tho vital heat is decreased; animal electricity diminished; tho nerves become
enfeebled; the natural strength abates;
the eyo loses its wonted brightness,
tho skin Us lively, rosy hue, and tlio
mind no longer exhibits its usual vivacity. Disease has fastened on the
vitals, life's fountain head is poisoned,
and the rapid march to the grave has
already commenced.
Take this condition of tho systom,
only a very faint picture of tens of
thousands of realities, and include
with it all the violations of physiological, moral, and sanitary law, and
you havo a perfect hotbed for tho production of the most virulent and
deadly cUauasos that over afflicted mankind. In Biioh a state nf things, tho
Almighty 1ms but just, to nnder tho
atmosphere negatively electric, and
immediately pestilence and death walk
hand in hand through tho land. Tho
atmosphere, seeking to restore its equilibrium, abstracts from tho already
enfeebled body tho animal electricity
imperatively demanded to sustain it in
the life and death struggle carried on
by the vital principle ngainst ovorpow-
ing disease, and as a consequence vitality is so rudely and suddenly shocked
that decomposition is quickened, the
nervous forces aro diminished, tho
purple current loses its propelling
electro-vital force; and thus disease,
under the guiding will of Providence,
swoops away humanity as with tho
besom of death, and tho cry of despair and boreavemeut is hoard in
thousands of homes.
We can now profitably look at the
diseases induced by intoxicating drinks,
and seo why cholera solocts the victims of such diseases.
DISEASES OF THE .STOMACH.
With respect to diseases produced
by alcohol on the living stomach wo
are very largely indebted to Dr. Beau-
inunt's long series of observations on
that of St. Martin, tho French Canadian, a moderate drinker. The actual
condition of the stomach immediately
after death is obtained from post mortem examinations. In the former caso
"the mucous membrane of the stomach soon became covered with inflammatory and ulcerous patches, the
secretions wore -vory much vitiated,
and the gastric juice diminished in
quantity and of an unnatural viscidity (stickiness)." "From the surface
somo nf the livid spots exuded smalt
drops of gruinous (clotted) blood; and
the mucous cover wiib thicker than
usual. The gastric fluids extracted
woro mixed with a lan/e proportion
of thick, r.'ijiy mucous, and slightly
tinged with blond, resembling discharges from tliu bowels in some cases
of dysentery." Yet St. Martin only
complained of "an nnoa&y sensation
and tenderness at the pit of the stomach, some vertigo (dizziness), with
(timiici-.) and yellowness of vision ou
stooping down and rising up," In old,
immoderate drinkers tho condition of
the organ is much more aggravated,
and is generally enlarged and softoned,
mid unfitted for the digestion of food.
However excellent tho food taken it is
immediately contaminated aud poisoned. There ia nlso a loss of appetite, nausea, and vomiting, unquenchable thirst, with pain aud tenderness.
The stomach is surcharged with gases
and acid fluid arising from the improperly digested food iho victim takes,
little though it be, undergoing putro-
fiietion. Thus we have tho very worst
form of dyspepsia~-tlio "rumstomach."
The uxcessive thirst is not natural, --nd
tho consequent intonsu craving for
liquor arises from thn diseased condition of the gastric branches of the
pu on inn-gastric aud ganglionic nerves
transmitting unnatural and injurious
impressions to tho brain. The diseased condition of the nervous tissue
generally increases the evil. When
tlio benumbing, stupefying ellticU of
alcohol liavn passed away, the diseased
nerves givo rise Lo feelings of uneasiness, au indescribable restlessness,
often a sense of exhaustion, whon thu
poor victim "feels that ho umat have
stimulants or die." And havu them
he will. Tho rational will power is
impaired, and he is hurried on to destruction by the demon of alcohol
within.
WHAT IS THE 1,-ONMTION  QF THB HI'JUIT
imiKKBtt'H IilVBIt?
It becomes diseased, changed from
a healthy reddish brown to a palo yellow, increased in size by tbo deposit
of fatty matter in itn substance, sori-
ously impaired in its functions, censing to properly separate the bile from
the blood, giving the couutonance n
sallow tinge and a jautidicud huo—
tho frequent tell-tale of jn temperance.
Thin ie tlio ''rum li"or '—the linger of
death pointing tn the grave. The
liver falling to filter and cleanse the
blood, it contains an excess of oily
and fatty matter, and othor products
of carbon to not lesB than 30 per cent,
in the earlier stages. This excess of
oily particles in tho blood is eventually
deposited in the liver, kidneys, muscular structure of tho heart, and even
tho coats of the blood vessels, especially of the brain, and through the
nervous and muscular structures generally. Bnt if lifo is continued thia
fatty deposit begins to be ro-abaorbed
as tho appetite fails, and the craving
for Btimulants increases. From this
time on tho watery part of tho blood
is augmented, the proportion of blood
globules diminishes and tho blood when
drawn is loss disposed to coagulate,
and the wretched victim soon sinks
into a drunkard's grave But tho
worst eflects of alcohol aro on the
DRAIN AND NERVOUS SYSTEM.
The brain and membranes become
overloaded with impure blood, resulting in congestion, which becomea permanent by tho constant supply of
spirit in tho blood. Under this constant unnatural pressure tho smaller
blood-vessels increase iu size until a
Blicod portion of tho brain has a siove-
liko appearance. Congestion leads to
the softening or hardening of the substance of tho brain, particularly of tho
surface, or gray matter, of tho convolutions of tho large brain, so prominently developed in tho front portion
of the head. This gray matter is the
sent of tho intellect. Equally involved
is tho littlo brain at tho back of thu
head, in which resides tho power to
obey tho commands of tho will, and to
maintain the erect position and control
tho direction of tho body. The constant irritation of the brain by alcohol
in tho blood, its excess of carbon and
other impurities gathered up in its
course, result in tho lowering of the
vital powers of the brain and nervous
systom. "It is this alarming depression of tho vital powers that renders
fear or attacks of acute disorders ho
fatal. In many eases this depression
is tho sole and immediato eatiso of
death." What aro the earliest and
latest
EVIDENCES  OF  THIS CONDITION OF THE
BRAIN 1
I answer: 1. The tremulous hand, the
impaired memory, tho confusion of
ideas, and tho want of ability to concentrate thought upon a given subject;
2, Muscular debility, strango sensations and numbness in different parts
of the body, specially in the feet, legs,
and hands, impairment of vision, indistinctness of speech, serious weakening of tho mind, delirium tremens, insanity, idiocy, and death—tho end of
the moderate drinker. Vv'e have seen
what humanity hns dono. How complete is tho physical preparation for
death by cholera or any other epidemic,
as much so as a bundle of shavings
saturated with herosene Jb ready for
the touch of the burning match.
Nothing more could be done savo
actual suicide. Now let us look at
what God does in the matter, aud why
he doos it, and I havo dono, except
thore should bo au expressed genoral
desire for what I consider the boBt
mode of treatment. I may, however,
say I mako no apology for closing this
subject by an appeal to tho Bible with
respect to its teachings concerning a
special Providence watching over tlio
affairs of,, individuals, families, tribes
and nations, encouraging the good,
and punishing.the bad, who, at the
same time that his penetrating gazo
sweeps tho horizon of tho universe,
watches over the humble sparrow, and
numbers tho hairs of his suffering children.
It is a fact with respect to the divine
moral government,
1. That sin shall bring forth death,
James, 1:15.
2. That whataover a man sowolh
that shall ho reap, Gal, (1:8; Job, 4:1}.
3. That the animal lifo of incorrigible sinners shall bo abridged, Prov.
2:22; Job. 24:24; Ps. 04:23; Prov,
10:27.
4. That tho ordinary laws and elements of naturo are often employed by
Divine Providence to accomplish this
object. Tho instrument may be the
atmosphere, Job, 4:9; Is., 11:4; or
food, Job, 20:14; or a specific disease,
2nd Ohron., 21:15-20; Acts, 12:23;
or fear, Pa., 73:19; or hail and fire,
Ex., 9:23; Lev., 10:2; Num., 10:35;
or water, Gen. 0:5 with 7:17—23; or
earthquake and tempest, Num., 10:30,
33; Is., 29:0; or pestilence, 2nd Sam.,
24:15; 2nd Ohron,, 21:14,15; Sulci.,
5:12; Zee, 14:12; or the withdrawal
of electricity from the utmosphere, aa
hi the epidemic of cholera in London
and Ht. Petersburg. When the fatal
pestilence was at its height, a magnet
of 40 pounds sustaining capacity waa
incapable of sustaining moro than 4 ur
5 pounds; but as the disenso abated it
was gradually restored to its original
power. This state of the atmosphere
had a most disastrous efi'ect upon the
collapsed cholera patients; for Justus
tho heat passed off from the body, did
tho electricity pass od', sometimes in
largo and sensible quantities. The
same electric distutbauce of ihu atmosphere that prevailed in Britain and
un tho continent during llio ou^break
and continuance nf cholera existed
during the cholera epidemic in America; "for nn almost total nh-jonco of
electricity from the atmosphere was
observed and felt, aud it total deprivation of electric power in those bodies
ordinarily possessed of it in a condensed degreo." For an aluoholic
drinker to enter iuto nn atmosphere of
this kind is liko touching a lamp to
keroaened shavings.
5. That the best good of tin-human
rnco demands the execution of this
penal luw. For when persons or peoples are determined toseuim Almighty
at dofianco and die in open rebellion
against hint, the sooner they nro cut
olF tho botter. Their own futuio punishment is proportionately diminished,
Ps., 02:12; Rom., 2:0; offtpring made
like unto themselves by precept and
example are prevented; and their evil
influence ml oUiers iu checked, la.,20:9.
This and the preceding nrticlo aro
specially commended to the attention
of the people of British Oohlmbia and
to her iiiodical men,
Wm, Kent, M.D,
Tlie Girl Who Elopes.
Nothing good is ever heard of tho
girl who elopes. Nuw und then she
figures in tho divorce courts, either as
plalntlh' of defendant, but ordinarily
thu world- movea on and leaves her to
her fate. Occasionally tho pulico
records give a fragment of bur lifo
when the hey-dny of hor youth and
life hns lied, and the man with whom
sho eloped has taken to beating her in
order to get up au appetite for breakfast. Here aud thore tho workhouse
or charitable home opens its doors to
receive her, when she wearies of the
life she gladly assumed, aud is too
proud to beg for forgiveness at home,
Sometimes thu morgue officials Iind
her a grave among tho suicides of the
town, but her experience hns no effect.
