A HARDENED  MURDERER.
Oakland, Cal., Jan. 6.—Nathan B.
Suttun waa hanged here this morning.
Sutton was a farmer and shot and
killed his neighbor, Alex. Martin, for
allowing his cattle to wander on Sutton's land. Sutton this morning arose
early and ate a fish breakfast. In reply to the question as to how he felt,
ho said " 1 never felt better." Mrs.
McXeul, a charitable lady, called at the
jail and prayed. She aaked Sutton to
pray for the forgiveness of his crime.
He said, "I have no remorse and felt
justified in killing Martin because the
cuttle trespassed on my land. I would
rather no to Hell and give Martin a
poke in the pit, than go to Heaven.'1
Sutton walked firmly to the gallows*)
and when the jailors were adjusting
the straps Sutton took hold of the
noose saying, "I want to look at that
necktie.''   At 12:16 the trap fell.
THE SITUATION UNCHANGED.
Reading, Pa., Jan. C—The rail*
roadors and miners strike is unchanged
in appearances and indicates a crisis.
Tho men are confident of ultimate sue*
cess, whilo tho railroad company and
collieries say they can get plenty of
non-union men to keep the business
going. General Manager McLeod said,
this morning, he hnd nothing to give
out to-dny and knew of nothing of interest to publish. It is certain, however, that something in the manner of
a compromise with the men must be
mado in a few days as the scarcity of
coal is becoming alarming. Evory mail
brings protests from the large business
people.
injunction served.
Omaha, Jan. (I.—Yesterday an in*
junction was sorved on the state board
of transportation, issued from the
Circuit Court of the United States, in
favor of the Union Pacific Railway
Company. Tho injunction orders the
board to desist from making, issuing,
serving or in any manner attempting
to fix, publish or enforce rates of
tariff ou freight and passengers over
the Union Pacific or Omaha and Republican Valley Railroads, whether
interstate on domestic, and from in
any way intermeddling or interferring
with the rates of tariff charged by the
road.
retaliation  demanded.
Philadelphia, Jan. 6.—A mass
meeting on Tuesday, under tho auspices of the national fishery association,
adopted a resolution of sympathy with
tho fisherman of New England in the
existing fisheries trouble, declaring
that Canadian fishing vessels should be
denied in our ports any rights which
Canada denies to our fishermen, and
calling upon the president to exercise
the retaliatory powers vested in him
by the forty mueth congress. They
protested against any re-establishment
of one sided reccprocity with Canada
and against the prosal to admit Canadian fish or other produots free of
duty.    	
Amos Hudgin, Toronto, writes: "I
have beon a sufferer from Dyspepsia for
the past six years. All the remedies I
tried proved useless, until Northrop ft

best results, and ean with confidence

f nils $ ritish Columbian
Friday Eveulnc, Jan. 6, 1888.
From mi Ottawa despatch which
will be found among our telegrams
to-day, it will be seen that thn Canadian government lias decided upon
a most important step io connection
with transatlantic traffic. With a
lino of such magnificont steamships
as arc mentioned in the telegram,
no other route will be able to compete for mails, express, and passenger traffic between Great Britain
and Canada and the northern states.
It will place the Canadian Pacific
Railway in a much better position
than it now occupies for securing the
through trade both of the Atlantic
and Pacific.
As an inducement for tho people
of Richmond to undertake the construction of roads and bridges leading to Burrard Inlet, it was stated
publicly the other day that the city
of Vancouver would do what no
city in the provinoe had yet done—
establish a public market. The Columbian has for years been urging
upon the people of Westminster the
importance of establishing a market
in this oity, but without result. If
we propose to keep tho large and
valuable trade hitherto carried on
with surrounding settlements, wc
shall have to move forward or take
the risk of finding that trade drifting away from us into other channels. It will not do to rest content
upon the knowledge of our splendid
geographical position and other advantages whicli ought to enable us
to compete successfully with all
other centres of trade. These advantages which nature bestowed upon us are of great importance, but
they will not compensate for the
lack of enterprise. Farmers have
been complaining for years that
there are no facilities offered here
for the disposal of their agricultural
produce. They are often compelled
to pack it about tli'e streets from
door to door, and after patience has
become exhausted sometimes they
dispose of it at a price far below its
value because the only alternative is
to take it home again. Such instances have occurred and will keep
on occurring so long as the people
neglect to provide a market. We
have heard more than one disgusted
farmer declare with emphasis that
he would never again bring a pound
of produce to this city, if he could
possibly help it, because of the vex-
atibns he had experienced in endeavoring tp find a purchaser. The
edst of a market need not be a serious matter; and we are persuaded
that if it were once established, the
city would find it one of the best
paying investments ever made. If
the coming council does not develop
energy enough to deal with this
most important matter, the citizens
must call a public meeting and give
such instructions as will meet the
exigencies of the case. There ought
to be no lime lost either.
A gentleman who lives back of
Maple Ridge informed us yesterday
that ho has been living there threo
years on a ranch he took up, and
has over 60 acres under crop; but to
this day so little has been done for
roads in bis direction that it would
be impossible to reach his place at
any time of the year with a loaded
wagon. In the place where he lives
there are now twenty families who
are as badly off as himself with respect to roads. This is a case which
seems to call for action on the part
of the authorities, both government
and municipal. There is, perhaps,
no rural municipality in the province that has been settling up and
developing moro rapidly within the
past two years than Maple Ridge.
But, unfortunately, like some of her
sister municipalities, the peoplo of
Maple Ridge have not always been
perfectly harmonious in their opinions and actions. Indeed, they have
on several occasions displayed a remarkable disposition to disagree,
and some of them have even beei.
open to the suspicion of having been
influenced by selfish motives more
than by patriotism. It has too often happened that the expenditure
of appropriations from the municipal
revenue has been determined by the
section where the wires can be pulled
with the greatest success, rather
than by the actual requirements of
the settlement. We believe, however, that in this respect Maple
Ridge as well as some other municipalities, has been improving, and the
time may not be far distant when
sectional jealousies and selfishness
will give place to more patriotic
sentiments. Every new settler
who chooses to take up land in a
region remote from the avenues of
travel cannot expect to have roads
constructed for bis individual benefit; but when a settlement springs
up with as many as twenty families
connected with it, there ought to be
means devised for bringing that
settlement into communication with
some market. We have no doubt
the government will, as far as its resources permit, supplement the appropriations of the municipality in
such ca«e«, We have spent a good
deal of money in inducing people to
oom* to this province as settlers: we
must not neglect to furnish them,
when here, with every reasonable
•dvinUge within reach of the municipal and provincial resources.

"You love mc, aud yet you cdnsay

"I could not have loved you had I

"1 dare not listen to you," and great
tears rolled down her cheeks; "1 dure

our earthly fates, and feel in iny heart
lmw entirely we shall yet bo separated

", o.t condemn me, then, to ruin ?"
"1 condemn you to ruin 1 God forbid!
Harry Norton,, it all remains with yourself. I cannot conceal from you tlmt I
think you have » hard battle before you
iu life. To conquer that appetite—to
determine that you will not yield, uud to
iibsinin Irom all that tends to tempt, to
uwakeu desires for stimulants, no matter
how weury, how worn you are with the
struggle—demands the strongest will, the
greatest self-sacrifice, the prayerful
spirit, tho Christian life. Are you capable of all this ? If you doubt yourself at
, all, in mercy never tempt a woman to
share a drunkard's life—to behold herself the mother of children wnu wi.l
never know tlio beauty, thu holiness, tire
protection of home.
"Vou think I exaggerate your fnnlti.
You do uot know all that is burn r.i ,rj
with tbe stamp of tire upon my memory.
1 lie y. urs roll back, aud I sue a youug,
trusting, credulous girl, who knew neither
h. rselt nor her needs in life, wedded toa
until whose jsartWjn prospects seemed
inner than those of most men, But this
girl, so Innocent, lovely, and trusting,
teamed soon—ah, too soon 1 — that her
whole life was sacrificed to one whose
taste forthe accursed stimulus of liquor
inr exceeded his love for the woman ho
prokssed to adore. Year titer year
passed on, adding to thia fatal taste additional strength. No caresses of sweet-
voiied lovely little children, no delights of home, were half so dear to this
uinu as the dm lntttuttton of hia life.
'This girl, always mature in mind, and
far his superior in nature, left no means
untried to save him. She was very attractive in manner, converifation, ahd
person, and all her attractions were put
in force to save him. She concealed his
habits of intemperance for years. She
kept his faults to' herself: She never
breathed aught against him, She upheld him, strengthened him, counselled
bim. If woman's influence could have
saved him he would bava been saved.
"I have keen her homo taken from her.
Her children and herself wandering
from one place to another, as she could
best earn their support; and this man,
seemingly devoid of human feelings,
leaving her to her or^n resources, while
wealthy relation* c*red for him,
"Thia woman waa Very near ana dear
to mo,, and nothing upon earth could
induce ine to gut myself in subjection tb
tho possibility of such a fate. Vou have
my truo friendship my best wishes for
vour welfare, my sincere prayers that
you may conquer in this fiery trial, but 1
dure not give you more. God only knows
bow hard this is for me to say tb you.
How willingly would I share your fate in
poverty, in any ordinary trial of life; but
1 dare not, lor mine own soul's sake, say
I tako your life, whatever it may be, for
mine. And so, Harry, let ua speak of
this no more."
She held out her hand. Hb caught it.
He drew her impulsively towards him.
He held her for an instant closely.
".Margaret," he said, "let tne kiss you
once."
And before she,could reply his burning lips touched her pure cool brow.
"Uoil bless Vou, Margaret, whatever
becomes of me!" . a.
In another instant he wat gone.
Sire passed through the garden-walk
into the pleasant porch, and stood a moment before' the open parlor-window,
whero an old gentleman rested in an
easy-chair.
"It Is a lovely night, father," tha said;
"but 1 will go to my room, I believe. I
urn very weary tonight.   Good-night 1"
"liood-nigbt, uy daughter I"
And Maifcaret went as usual with her
stately s't-p to her chamber .doer; tut
once within its solitude, and the proud
resolved spirit was bowed in bitter tor-
row.   ..,.■._   ,    ....

thaw who live sold/ for their own
pluiisuro, and no one in all the vill gi
wan more relied upon in .sorrow or trouble
na a kind By iny at Inzer than Bhe.
A youug clergyman who settled in tin
pirns!) was soon observant of this stroll t,
■self-reliant nature— thid tender daughter
and kind friend.
Margaret wns not doomed to live a
solitary life, t-h*) found inu't'h to cstemn
in Mr. KMon, and at last much to lovj;
und ono bright spring mornin r sho sioo I
with him at the village altar as his
bride.
Aa she entered tho carriage a pat-kct
was given to her, and opening it, siie
found a wedding-gft—a brooch formed
of a largo pure pearl, finely aot, and a
letter.
The letter waa as follows:
"Mahoaket,—You are a pearl among
all others in my memory, and I beg
you to accept this symbol of yourself
as a gift from an old friend. You wero
right, Margaret —no man, knowing
himself a slave to intemperance, should
ever tempt a woman to share its curso.
What ctfn I write you of my tile I Only
that there are times when I am mad
—when no reason remaina to me—and
then I como out oi this valley of the
shadow of death, and 1 see you, strong,
pure, ao far away from mo. Your
words come back to me, nnd I know
yon were right when you chosj to walk
apart from one so unworthy. Do uot
believe that I do not struggle, but a
power stronger than I controls me. 1
can rejoice in your happitu'ss, and I
know that I wns once blessed with your
lovo—that my true self w..s onu> dear
to you. Hut purity, rec.itude, wero
denror to you than aught else, and ho
who failed of these could not hold possession of your heart. That om
worthy to be your guide, your stuff
througn life haa won yon, awakens no
seliiuh feeling in my heart. I have
aaid that I can—I do—rojoico in your
happiness."
Happy brido though she waa, tears
filled her eyes. She pitiod him very tenderly, and pitied him all the moro bo-
cause of h.-f own happiness.
Tho years rolled quietly on with her;
children were given to her love and care.
In the pleasant village homo where her
childish days were passed alio lived tho
contented life of u happy wifo and
mother.
lt waa towards tho closo of a bright
summer day that Mr. Kldon came slow.y
up the garden-walk, and Margaret, hastening with tender welcome to greet lih.i,
auw alone.', from his face, that he uorj
unwonted news.
"Margaret," ho said, "I wish you would
come with me to see a dying man wh >
wishes to bid you farowell. Vou huvo
nevor forgotten Harry Norton, lt U
he."
It was not calmly she could think of
the intorview. Her hands trout bled aa
she tied the strings on ber bonnet; tears
filled her eyea, and Bhe leaned heavily on
the arm of her husband as ho related to
her the story of hia summons to tlu
house where Harry Norton, fooling his
days were numbered, had come to bid
her farewell—to die.
The setting-sun was glorifying all
things; the distant mountains and rivus
were bathed in golden light. They enter
the chamber of the dying man. Tne
same golden atmosphere lilted it; fro.n
the open window came the,soft aumnicr
air, the glad notes of alnging birds,
"You are good as ever, Margaret,"
Harry aaid faintly, "to come; but 1 folt
that if yon wished me God speed, 1 might
more safely cross the dark river, "i ou
cannot know—no one can know but ita
victims—the irresistible power of tho disease which bears mo to my grave, it is

(Willi say with supernatural power:

hong and tenderly Margaret and hor
huslwnd talked with him, listened pityingly lo his account of the struggles ho
had made so us-.*k*ssly against what he
believed lo bo a madness, und soothed
ami comforted by them, he passed quietly, resignedly—nay, thankfully, into the
other life, the "great beyond.'7

A Sluggish liver
Causes the Stomach und Bowels to become disordered, and the wholo system
to suffer from debility. Id all such
cases Ayer'a Pills give prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Fills.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their action, and their occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition.—Ralph Weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Fills.
Since that time I have never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and Increase the appetite, more surely than any other medicine.-Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy iqual to Ayer's
Fills for Stomach antliwivcr disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Livor, and Dyspepsia; for eighteon months. My skin
was yellow, and ray tonguo coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was palo and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Fills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer'a PillB aro a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting from
Liver Complaint. I have used these

KeTorm Weeded*
Yesterday morning when the police
court opened there was no fire in the
room, uud the temperature wns below
freezing point. Thia morning tlie
same state of affairs wus io exUtanco.
It must bu someones duty to start tlie
fires and keep the room in a proper
state of cleanliness, but the place is
never fit to bo in except whon comity
court or supremo court is in session.
This tiling should bo looked after, as it
is not fair to anyone whose duties require them to bo present during flic
sitting of tlie police court*.
Public   Meeting-
In response to a requisition from a
number of citizens, Mayor Dickinson
has called a public meeting in the Drill
Shed nt 8 o'eloek to-morrow evening.
We do not know the particular subjects that will come before this meeting, but there aro several nintters
which need discussion nnd cull for
prompt action nt the present moment.
If this city wishes to reap the full advantages of its position and resourceo,
it will ha\e to wake up, Wu hope tho
discussions to-morrow night will bo
marked by wisdom and praolical good
sense.
Another Libel -tnui*.
Tho crop of libels is increasing, nnd
now it is the Victoria Times that is
called upon to put up $10,000 nt the
instance of Mr. D. \V, Higgins, M. P.
P. This action comes from a statement which appeared in the Times in
which, plaintiff alleges, it is insinuated
that he got a commission on the contract for supplying uniforms for tlie
Victoria police force, At tho present
time the following libel cases are in
the courts: Hon. Judge Wai ken vs.
tho Colonist, which has been appealed
to the supreme court of Canada; Hon. Jno. Robson vs. the Guard-
imr, Hon. Robt. Dunsmuir vs. tho
Vancouver News; D. W. Higgins, M.
P.P., vs. the Times', Mayor Fell vs.
the Colombian, lu the last case
action was begun nearly threo years
ago, but has not been followed up.
Brick Making.
During tho year 1887 thero hnvo
been made at the brick yard of Manahan Bros., in this city; 1,500,000
bricks, The yard is situated on the
glen near the penitentiary, and the
firm employs 23 men,
Beckett & Co., nf this eity, have
turned out 2,000,000 bricks from their
yard nt Port Huney, where they employ 40 mon.
There are two other yards at Pott
Haney, which have probably made
about 1,000,000 bricks.
Tho live yards near Viotoria report
an aggregate of 8,000,000 bricks for
ihe season.
In the vicinity of Vancouver there
arc three yards, but wo have not been
able to learn the extent of their operations Probably they may have turned out 2,500,000 bricks.
The total product of bricks in the
province during tlio yuur will probably
be over 15,500,000, worth about $160,-
000. Of that quantity about 7.000,-
000 were made in tlie clistriot of Westminster.
The TIiiimiMnn Hlver Bridge,
Tho new government swing bridgo
over tho Thompson river at tho east
end of the town is completed. Tho
structure is 1,000 feet long, with a
span of 120 feet, and an opening of
50 foet, erected at. a cost of about
$7,000 by contractor D. F. Adams, of
Victoria, under the supervision of Mr,
Arthur Ste ven eon. superintendent of
roads and fridges for Yale district.
The bridgo is constructed of wood,
erected on piles, and is twenty-seven
feet above low water. The work was
begun in November and completed in
less than two mouths. Thero is a
straining beam truss on the approaches
to the bridge and on the main span a
Howe truss, with suspension svvny
rods. Thu bridgo was built in evory
particular according to the specifications and u a fir-st-claas piece of work,
being among tho best in tho upper
country and highly creditablo to Contractor Adams. It provides enliven-
ient access to a largo district on tho
North Thompson nnd will prove n
great advantage to tho residents of
that section us well at tlio business

Custom* Returns.
For the yonr ending 30th June last,
tho value of goods exported from the
province at the three principal ports
wns ^ follows: Victoria, $2,004,384
(of which #100,215 was uot tho product of Oanapn); Nanaimo, gl ,141,494;
Westminster (including Burrard Inlet),
§2110,589. A largo part of tho goods
exported through Victoria are the
produce of tho Mainland, including
gold and iish of the value of about §1,-
000,000, and animal products valued
at §380,120. The imports were: At
Victoria, imports, 82,070,088; duly
collected, 8778,558; Westminster, im-
port-i, S:»08,533; duties eolleeted $07,-
042; Nanaimo, imporls, $142,471,
The total imports were valued at §3,-
532,084, aud Uie lotnl duty paid was
$877,18". Compared with ihe yenr
ending 30th June, 1880, there is a decrease of §303", whicli is accounted
for by the largely increased consumption of Canadian goeds ill this province. The inland revenue collected
nt Victoriit for the past yenr amounted
to 878,384. The customs duties paid
at Vancouver for five mouths onding
with November amounted to 924,710.
During the 10 years ending lust Juno,
Biitisli Columbia has paid §0,431,416
in customs duties.
Leather Tanning ami Bool and Slim*
Manufacturing
The only tannery on the Mainland
is situated nt Sapperton, one of the
suburbs of this city. It is known as
the "Mainland Tannery" and is owned
by Mr. James Rousseau. The principal lines of leather manufactured aro
skirting, sole, harness, calf, kip and
upper. The goods tin-nod but by thu
Mainland Tannery will compare very
favorably with the lines manufactured
by tanneries in tho east, and they are
admitted to bo the best manufactured
in the province. Iu skirting leather,
Mr, Kousseau's make commands the
highest price on tlio market. Tho
tannery building is 2!).\77 feet and is
fitted up with everything necessary for
turning out the best lines of leather.
During 1887 the tannery manufactured
about 25,000 lbs of leather, valued at
§10,000. These amounts are largely
in exosss of tlie previous year, nnd it
is expected this yenrs business will
show a largo increaso over thu figures
of J 887.
In boota and shoes Mr. Rousseau
manufactures nothing but hand made
work. During thu greater part of tho
yenr i4 men were employed, who
turned out in nil 810,000 worth of
hand made uoods. These gooda were
principally disposed of in Mr. Rous-
Beau's retail store on Columbia st.
(iRar Manufacturers.
The Mainland Cigar Factory, Win.
Tietjen, proprietor, is the largest establishment of the kind in the province. Tho quality of goods manufactured, ranges from the middling
brands to the best. Strange as it may
Boem the moat expensive brands are
in greater demand tlinn tho cheaper,
though uo cheap cigars nre mado in
the establishment. Mr. Tietjen does
not employ Chinese labor, but skilled
white labor only. Twelve skilled men
arc employed who turn out about 40,-
000 cigars ench month. During 1887
15,000 lbs of raw leaf tobacco were
imported, whieh is valued at §12,000.
The price oi tobacco imported runs
from 70 els. to §i.40 per lb., whicli
includes the finest Havana leafs and
tho be3t Sumatra wrappers. Tho number of boxes imported wns 8,000,
valued at SI.200. During tho year
500.000 cigars woro manufactured,
valued at 832.500. The value of the
goods speaks for the quality, The
average price per 1000 cigars for tho
year was §05, Notwithstanding tho
increiising competition from eastern
manufacturers and tho cheaper grades
of yoods to contend ngainst, tlio business of the Mainland Cigar Factory
has been largely added to during tho
past yenr nnd continues to grow stead-
liy.
•lames Harling commenced manufacturing about aix mouths ago and is
therefore only getting properly started.
We has imported 2,000 lbs of raw leaf
tobacco, valued at 81.500, and 1000
boxes valued at §200, Since commencing busineps he has manufactured 50,-
000 cigars valued ut §3,000.
