NUMBER 28

Wrilncmlay Evening, Belli. I. 1880.
Mr. Blaine does not "express
himself" on the prohibition question. He merely defends the Republican party ugninst the rage of
the prohibition leaders. It is certainly a little queer that the Republican party of Maine, with its'rco
ord of uniform support of prohibition" for twenty-live years, has not
lieen able to convince the prohibitionists of its fidelity. Possibly
the reoord is not so "uniform" after
all.—Oregonian, \ \
Beaching roi- Trade.
A message from Sau Francisco
contains the important news that
the steamer Mexico whicli left the
Bay City on Friday last, hud on
board eleven car loads of miscel-
lanebus' freight for shipment over
tho Canadian Pacilic Railway to
eastern- points. Thin is a good beginning for the Canadian road. It
was only a week or two ago that
tho freight and ticket agency at San
Francisco was opened, and the 120
tons of goods which will arrive in
the Inlet this week to be transferred to tho cars of the C. P. R., are
the first instalment of business
which tho new agent hns secured
for the road which he represents.
This freight coines to Victoria on
thc Mexico, one of the steamers run
by the Pacific Coast Steamship Company, between Snn Francisco and
Vancouver Island, One hundred
and twenty tons of freight may not
be a sufficiently large amount to
warrant tho steamship company
tending their steamer to Burrard
Inlet direct, but should the amount
of freight incrense—as it undoubtedly will—the day cannot be far of
before our citizens will welcome the
sound of the whistle of the magnificent vessel, the Queen of the Pacific, which would probably be the
largest passenger steamer which has
evor anchored in Coal Harbor. The
Mexico and Queeii of tho Pacific
leai-e the Bay City each alternative
Friday morning for the north, and
when tho company arranges for
these two steamers to call at Vancouver, the terminal city will be in
direct communication with San
Francisco. The result of this connection cannot do otherwise than to
open up a large amount, of passenger and freightitraffio for tho Canadian Pacific. Travelers to the Atlantic Coast will be sure to patronize the road in laigonumbers and
shipper* will also send a portion of
their freight over the Dominion
lint*. There are many points in
eastern Canada now reaohed from
this coast via the American and
Canadinn roads which in future will
be reached by the Canadian Pacific
and its branch lines; the trade in
this manner being diverted from
the United States reads and transferred entirely to those running
through the Dominion. That the
Canadian Pacific jb making a successful bid for the American trade
is evident. It is also bound to secure a large amount of the Puget
Sound traffic, which is now being
transported over the Northern Pacilic; the agent in the queen oity of
the Sound being now engaged in
canvassing for freight antl passenger business. Whether the bold
steps which the Canadian road is
now taking to wrest a share of thc
traffic from our cousins on the othor
•side will lead to a war of railroad
rates is at present uncertain, but
such an eventuality is very likely to
occur. The Canadian Pacific Railroad is fully justified in going into
the territory of the enemy. Too
long has the Oregon Railway and
Navigation Oompany hnd nil its own
way in the matter of freight and
passenger traffic from the coast to
Vancouver Island. The rates
charged by that compnny have been
inordinately large, nud it is time
there was a change. Tliis change
will be brought about by the shippers sondihg' their goods from Victoria to Vancouver, and shipping
them direct over the 0. P. R., in
placo of forwarding them to Tacoma, thenco east over the Northern
Pacifio. Competition is said, truly,
to be the life of trade, und the
events, whicli are now occurring
must end in benefit ull round,
(ioods and passengers will go through
at lower, rates, immigrnlioii will
increase, and the provinco be settled
up much more rapidly than in the
past. The new 0. P. R. dock is
now completed, the warehouse built
nnd ready for business It affords
ample room and accommodation for
the immense quantities of freight
which mny be looked for during the
next few months to be shipped from
the terminus. — Vancouver Jttms,

The llrancli Hallway.
Our semi-weakly cotemporary on
Church st. comes back to his attack
on the branch railway and everybody connected with it. While professing to have at heart tho best
interests of tlio city, our cotemporary has never lost an opportunity
to put himself in tho way of tliese
interests whenever they seemed to
touch the personal schemes wliich
his own ambition had laid out.
When it was first proposed to connect this city liy rail with thoO. P.
It. our cotemporary insisted that
the connecting road must go to Port
Moody, because he had lots there.
When the city council proposed to
sell a portion of tho public squares
for the purpose of enabling us to
secure railway connection, oue co-
temporary interposed every barrier
that he could find, and did his best
both to stir Up opposition to the
square sales and to shake public
confidence in the titles to these lots
given by the corporation. Now
that the road has been built into the
city and has nearly reached the terminal point, our cotemporary is
plainly endeavoring to create a feeling among the citizens that it will
be to their advantage to throw every
possible obstacle in the way of its
completion. We are glad'to know
that these endeavors in mischief are
likely to be as fruitless as they have
been in thc past.. There is every
reason to believe that the road will
be completed in a very short time,
and there is no reason to doubt that
its completion and operation will be
of very great benefit to the city.
The beneficial results of the sule ofthe public squares are already being seen. These unsightly vacancies in the heart of our fair oity
have already undergone such a
change as could scarcely have Been
predicted before they became private
property. A large number of line
residences have boen erected wliere
lust year there was nothing but
stumps und rubbish, and the progress still goes on. These properties, moreover, having been vested
iu private hands, become taxable
and will be a continuous source of
revenue to the city. Our cotemporary protests ugainst the encroachment of the railway on Front street,
and predicts the complete destruction of our water frontages. In the
city of Toronto, the largest uud
most rapidly expanding city in Ontario, nearly the whole of the water
front is occupied by railway tracks.
There is not simply one track, but
ovor a dozen, and they extend clear
across the front of the city. But
Toronto has been made by thc railways, and in point of trade it has
only one equal in Ihe Dominion;
The notion that a track on Front st.
will injure the city is simply the
result of a fresh disarrangement of
our cotemporary's "internal calculus." We shall be well enough satisfied if in the next 25 years this
city can show as large n trade and
as large a population as the city of
Toronto. It is worth while to observe, nlso, that Toronto is not the
terminus of any great railway. The
G!i and Trunk, the (jreat Western,
and the Canadian Pacific all pass
through it,.and they are the great
railways of Canada. The people
of Toronto have never taken stock
in the theory that a railway must be
stopped whenever it reaches tlieir
city. They have encouraged the
extension of tlieir railway system in
nll directions, and have made themselves rich and prosperous by thnt
policy. The only hope for tho establishment-! of wholesale houses in
New Westminster lies in the prospect of improving our means of commercial intercourse and securing
cheap freights. Ou the first page
of this paper to-day will be found
an article from thc Vnncouver News
in which it is intimnted that the
steamships of tho Pacilic Coast
Steamship Co. will hereafter make
regular trips from San Francisco 11
Burrard Inlet. At present these
steamers will go to Port Moody, but
Vnncouver will be their destination
as soon as the railway is extended
to that place. Now, this brings the
terminus of this important steamship line within a few miles of New
Westminster, and opens to our merchants a new channel for wliich wc
have been many years waiting. This
province will always import to a
considerable extent from California,
and with a road from this city to
Vancouver direct we could lay
down California goods at very much
lower rates than can now be done.
New Westminster hns nothing to
fear from railway connection with
Vancouver, but a great deal to gain.
The Guardian professes, to have
in view only the interests of the
city, but we really cannot remember anything that paper has ever
done for the city but hold it and its
affairs up to public execration. The
people of this city would he just us
well pleased if the editor of our co-
temporary confined himself exclusively to the business of booming
his Port Moody lots.

Editou Columiuan.—1 was present on
the lost evening when Mrs. Youmans addressed the large assembly in the Drill
Shed, and could not help observing liow
much in earnest the ladies seemed to be
iu the temperance cause, and ou the other
hand how indifferent the lords of creation
seemed to be, on that and former occasions, on the some subject. I have often
heard the remark that womeu were a
little out of their place in taking the lead
iu this temperance question, and I must
confess that I have to a certain extent
shared in this feeling; but I am becoming
convinced that tbe women's movement is
providential, because it is necessary if
the human family are to be saved from
this great curse. It is quite apparent
that men. are failures in the temperance
movement as far as B.C. is concerned.
Politicians who profess temperance are
too ready to dodge tbe question when
their constituents happen to he interested
in the traffic.. I havo rend of a member
of the Dominion parliament who, when
the question came up for the adoption of
tho Dominion act to B.C. moved that
Victoria oity be excepted; whicli meant
that although a professed temperance
advocate he was anxious to seo the whiskey curse continued in the capital city of
B.C. a while longer. Moody says that
"man has been a failure everywhere."
Very few are fully aware of the havoc
that whiskey is making. Yesterday as I
walked up Columbia street I saw, a little
ahead of me, a young man trying to make
his way home under a load of intoxication. His appearance was truly pitiable.
Poor fellow 1 I felt for his mother, who
would no doubt feel worse than I could.
I often think that if people who are
nominally opposed to evil were really
sincere this fearful state of things under
the license system would soon be altered,

St. John's, N.F., Aug. 19.—Accounts of the destruction caused by the
recent gale aru fast coming in. A
most violent storm swept over St.
Pierre on Wednesdny night, thu
fiercest known for n quarter of a century. Buildings wero blown down in
every direction aud considerable damage done to shipping. Two vessels
were driven ashore uud wrecked, and
several men badly hurt. Dog Island
is strewn with the wrecks of fishing
vessels, nud grave tears nro entertained
for tho safety of the (hand Banks
fleet. At Black Island a fishing skiff
drove on the rocks and all hands perished. Fivo trespassing skills are
missing in all, and the probability is
thoy wore lost as they drove to sea in
tho gale. At Bird Island Cove havoc
was caused by the storm and a tumultuous sea. Five fishing vessels were
there. Fishing stages were wrecked
and blown into the sea. At Old Per-
lican a fishing vessel was swamped and
all hands perished. Two crafts drove
ashore nt Lend Cove nnd ono mnn wns
drowned nnd several seriously injured.
At Bacalieu, whoro n lnrge number of
vessels were fishing, it is feared the
loss of Hfo and property is great. Thu
banker, J. K. Mimdell, wns driven
ashore at Biscay Bay and wrecked.
The ship's sidu was broken in and such
was the fury of tho sea that the crow,
with difficulty, clung to tho bottom of
thu wreck nll night, being surf-wnshed
till 0 o'clock next morning, when- they
were rescued. It is feared the fishing
ileets on thu Labrador const suffered
heavily.

Savannah, Ga., Sept. I, 4 a. in.*---
Three distinct shocks of earthquake have
been felt here since midnight. The last
occurred at 3:40 a, in., and the shocks
were short aud not violent. People are
still greatly excited, and sitting out in
the Btreets and squares or crowding
around the telegraph aad newspaper
offices. The general impression is tliat
Charleston has suffered seriously. It is"
supposed that the cable tinder Ashley
river is broken. AtTybe island, in the
mouth of thu Savaiiiiah river, the louses
in the lighthouses were destroyed. People on the island telephone to the city
that they arc in n state of terror. There
is no communication with the mainland

arc assembled on the highlauds. The
chief cause of fear is from tidal wave*.-,

BcciiAKiMT, Sept. 1.—Tho Russian

London, Sept. 1.- The StandurtPji
Berlin correspondent says that in a conversation yosterday Bismarck said: " 1

Sofia say that Karaveloffand the metropolitan element have fled from that city.
Karavcloff "s action during the revolution
was suspicious. He allowed Alexander's
partisans to be arrested by SemkofY and
to remain in prison, and failed to disarm
all the soldiers implicated in the conspiracy.

Shanghai, Sept. I.—Advices from
Ching Too Poo, cliief city of tho province uf Scchneii, state that the natives of
tho eastern part of that province and
those ofj northern Cochin', China have
risen against the Christiana, and aru
massacreiug them and destroying their
property. This active persecution is attributed to the imprudence of Knglish
and American missionaries iu Cochin
China. About fifty Christians were
killed, . houses burned and farms destroyed. In Sechneii a general massacre
of Christians is reported iu progress, and
they aro killed wherever found. Villages
occupied by Christians havo been destroyed, and all lands occupied by Christians are being devastated. The apostolic vicar's residence has been burned to
tho ground—not a piece of furniture nor
book nor paper saved. The foreign consuls barely escaped from Seohnen with
their lives.

The Confederation Mfe.
'I he annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will bo found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the iiccounts anil the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecotuhuns which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks tothe resolute
maimer iu which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the companv hear to thc
total income the very small ratio of between 17 ami 18 por cent. A point attesting thc soundness of tho finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is 'sufficient to pay the death
elaims- -which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Lifo is something to be
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities arc
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies ami providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $283,100
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets iu the hist year
was U2C0,3fl0. So much for what can he
done by iit-i-1 adherence to what the
President defined as the trnu policy of
the Company, vi*/,:--"To keep its balance-
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the

AFTER DINNER.
Persons who suffer from IndlgcBtlon
can arrest the progress of that painful
malady by tho uso of an after-dinner
pill, so composed that it will give tone
lothe stomach, prevent heartburn, rouse
the liver to healthful action, invigorate
the kidneys, aud thus, through the activity
of these organs, promote the natural
movement or tho stomach and bowels.
Ayer's Pills are so compounded that
their action, though mild, effectually produces the above results. They also, in
curing Constipation, remove the cause of
IJiliousncss, Liver Complaint, Kidney Disease, Rhoumnt ism, and many other serious
ailments.
AYER'S PILLS
contain 110 mineral nor poisonous ruIi-
stancc, ami do not gripe unices the
howi-ls are irritated, and even then their
influence is healing. To continue their
effect in constipated or chronic cases, they
nml only he taken in diminishing Instead
of iiu-rt'HsIng doses. Vot seamen, aud inhabitants or travelers in f-parselv settled
countries where physicians arc not at
hand, they arc of Incstimublc value.
There is hardly a sickness they will not
alleviate, and In most cases cure, if taken
promptly. To young girls just entering
upon womanhood, nnd to women whoso
period of maternity is drawing to a close,
Ayer's Pills, In moderate doses, merely
sufficient to ensure regular nction of the
bowels, will hu found of
Incalculable Value.

-Whitb Biwnze Monuments.—White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into largo use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
beon found to he so woll adopted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, aud St. Thomas, Canada,
who arc making monuments of all kinds
aud styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has beeu found that
tlie material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws oil'a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts thc surface, but docs not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
thc elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is so thin as to lie immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.—Poston Journal of Commerce, Chas. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze

this city for shipment over the Canadian Pacilic lino.

London, Aug. 31.-—The last of the
preliminary mces in tlio international
sculling sweepstakes were rowed to-
day.   Thore were two heats, the fiiBt
between Wm. Beach <>f Australia and |
George Bubeur nf   England,  and  the
other  between  John   Teemer of thu
United States and Neil   Matterson of
Australia.    Beach   and Teenier wore
the winners.   The weather   wus brilliant, but the water somewhat lumpy. I
Beach led Bubear throughout the heat |
and won as he pleased by a  clear six
lengths,    A foul occurred during tho !
race, whicli both mon claimed. Betting !
was G to 1 in favor (tf Beach; hia time,
18 min. 30 sec.   Teemer was almost as \
bi:» a favorite for bbcoikI heat as Bench '■
was for Grst, 5 to 1 being   offered on;
him.   The men got olf together, and
reumiiied mi a level   during   the tirst j
200 yards.    Mutterson then began to
forge ahead, and soon led hy a length, l
when he crtissed over aud took Teem- j
er's   water.   Teemcr   then  closed up ]
and  touched   Mattel-son's  boat, thus
winning the race on a foul.   Teemer j
afterwards got clear and continued to
the  line, finishing alone.    People ou
board the steamers following the race \
were io nbs-irbcd in watching the foul,
and afterwards when Matterson col- !
lapsed, that   they   in endeavoring to
avoid  tho  Australian   ran down the I
press launch, which  was   crushed botween the others and  half tilled with
water.   The reporters scrambled into :
other boats, leaving their notes behind,
with the exception of two press   men
who    swam    ashore.    No   oue was '
drowned, though Kteat confusion pre- j
vailed for a time.   Matterson ascribes
his collapse   to terrific exertions put
forth   liy   liim   yesterday in his  race ,
with   Wallace Ross.   Beach   declares
he is wonderfully well, and that he is
confident   of  beating Teenier in the j
linal race to-morrow.   Betting on the
result of the  race as  between   Beach j
and Teemer is 7 to 4 on  Beach.   The
race will take place at 3:30 p. ni.

Berlin, Aug. 31.— North German ;
Gazette i-eitemtes that Germany has uo
intcrest   whatever in   Bulgaria.     It I
says, it iB not worth while to keep a
single German soldier under anus on
nccount of Bulgaria.     The necessity
for German armament is due to Fruneu. i
" Every French newspaper " the Gaz- \
elte says "proves that France is making
vapid preparations to fight and that j
financial sacrifices are being made to
raise the efficiency of her army.    Germany must always keep her eyes fixed
upon France."
Paris, Aug. 31". A despatch from
Berlin Bays: Prince Dolgovonke will
not go to Bulgaria. The Russian
officers whatever in the Bulgaria army
prior to coup d'etat will not re-enter
Prince Alexanders service. A despatch also says : Prince Alexander is
not at till sanguine of restoring order
and would abdicate unly that lie is encouraged by Kngland to persevere.
City Mexico, Aug. 31.—A powerful
company of English capitalists with
headquarters iu London has got possession of an old concession for a railway from Tuxhan to this city and will

825,000,000. This will be the most
important investment of English capital ever made iii Mexico.
Yokohama, Aug. 81. -Advices from i
Corca state that owing to rumors that !
Russia intends to establish a protector-
ate over Corea, the Chinese minister
then telegraphed to the Pekin govern- '
ment asking that troops be sent to the :
peninsula, and that in compliance witli
the request the Chinese government
despatched a man of wat   with troojjs
on board to Corea, and that they are
now anchored before Chemulpo.    Des-
patches further statu that large num* j
bers of Chinese soldiers hail entered
Seoul iu the disguise of merchants, aud
that groat excitement prevailed in that
tuwii.     Dense  mobs  were parading j
streets, and conflicts woro frequent.
Aug. 81.—-A Washington special to
the Post says :   A new point has been
raised iu -.connection witli the seizures \
liy the revenue cutter of 3 Canadian j
vessels  hi    Behring  straits   on  the !
ground tliat they were catching seals iu j
waters ceded to us by Russia.   One of
these vessels is said to have been  captured 05 miles apd a second 120 miles
froin tho lK-urest  lnnd.     The point
made is. that Russia had no right to
convey the sea to us, and if it did by
the terms of its treaty iu connection
with the sale of Alaska cede the greater part of Behring straits, will tiny foreign government recognize such right
under internal laws f    If the United
States has a. right to prohibit British :
fisherman from taking  fur seals   120
miles from land, has not tho V. S.  the
same Hgllt to prohibit British or Nor-!
wegian whalers  from  taking whales
within tlio   same  seas.     Our treaty j
rights''in Bullring sea have never been
tested. '"It is possible thnt the seizure
of tln»* Canadian vessols liy our revenue cutter may bring tliose lights into
dispute.      Inquiry waa made   at the '
--tote department to-day to ascertain
whether the department hud considered'the matter.    Ass-Secy. Porter said:
tho anliject had not yet boon brought
to the official attention tif the depart- ,
ment whero it will bo likely to remain ,
unless   tiie  owiu'i'H nf the Canadian
vessels should complain to their government. Canada should in turn report
to the British government, and the
subject in this manner be called to the
attention of the State department.

HaoKi:hviu,k, Aug. 27.— The election campaign iu iluldimaud opened

Halifax, N. S„ Aug. 27.-The
statement of the American officers of
tho North Atlantic squadron, who have
been visiting the fishing ground, to
the effect that, tlie Dominion government has taken Capt. Quigley, of the
Terror, in hand for being too sovero
ou the Amorican flshornleh, had no
foundation. Capt. Scott spent ull day
in investigating, but had found that
Gapt. Quigloy aid not exceed his duty
in ilny particular. Tho amount of it
is that the American tishennen have
been allowed to do nbout as they liked.
On account of the treaty, tho enforcement of tin customs regulations has
beeu very lax, and this state of affairs
has been going on so long that the
Americans have come to look upon
these privileges as vested rights, and
to imagine that there ure no laws of
Canada that they nro bound to respect.
The minister of customs is determined
that the laws shall be strictly enforced,
He says: "As far iwit is in my power,
I am going to see that no customs m-
othot- infringements are permitted, aud
that the ollicers of idl the cruisers use
their endeavors to prevent violations."
