Tlie Wrecked Sloop.
From Mr. E. Hill, who arrived
from Oapo Mudgo by the steamer
Dutismnir yesterday, we learned
that the sloop found upset by the
Indians, and reported in the Free
Press last week, was towed by them
into Campbell River and is now
there awaiting identification. The
sloop is a nicely finished double-
euder, painted yellow inside and
red outside. The sloop was found
on its side with the sail not set. In
the boat were found a cook stove
and kettles, paint brushes, head of a
garden ruke, un Indian bow and
four sets of Indian bracelets. There
is no name or mark on the boat by
which she could be identified. The
Indian chief at Campbell River
lias the boat in charge pending it
being claimed by the owner. From
Mr. Graham who returned by the
steamer yesterday we learn that
there is.no truth in the report that
R. Hall and his party were drowned. Mr. Graham saw Mr. Hall at
his farm and he was hale and hearty. Mr. J. H. Gray, 0. E., and his
exploring party, left Salmon River
on Sunday, proceeding northwest,
nnd did not expect to return there
for fourteen days.
A Bold Bobbery!
The trading sohooner Oriole, Mr.
John Greene, owner and captain,
has been at anohor in this harbor
for a week or two preparatory to
making another trip north. On
Tuesday, Mr, Greene came ashore
and got the worse of liquor, leaving
a man named James Lawrence in
charge. On returning to the
schooner Capt. Greene found that
the box-safe on board hud been
broken into and between $375 to
#400 stolen therefrom. About $230
of the stolen money is in sliver and
the remainder in bank notes. Suspicion at once rested on this' man
Lawrence, and on the police making
inquiries they fonnd that James
Lawrence had left by the E. it N.
train on Wednesday afternoon, und
that previous to leaving he had paid
several little bills owed about town.
A representative of the Free Press
saw Lawrence leave by the train
and heard him say he was going
away from the country, but little
dreamt that he had dyed his hands
in robbery. Lawrence stated to
some acquaintances that he intended
to go to Australia, On looking
through the scooner it was found
that Lawrence had left behind his
trunk and clothes. It was noticed
that he hod no valise or trunk with
him when he 'Walked up to meet
the train. On Thursday afternoon
shortly after the robbery was discovered, a description of Lawrence
was telegraphed to tbe superintendent of police at Victoria, but it was
feared he would cross to Washington Territory that morning. Lawrence had been working in this city
for some time and the suspicion of
robbery was a surprise to those who
knew him.—Nanaimo Free Press.
The Pacific Province.
In another crrlunin will bo found
a very int'ert'tVtilig interview between a Cititen representative and
the Hon. John Robson, M. P, P.
for New Westminster District British Columbia, provincial secretary
and minister of agriculture and
mines. Mr. Robson's statements
are interesting, as coming from a
gentleman who has had experience
of British Columbia before anil after
confederation, nnd beforo and after
the construction of the Canadian
Pacific Railway. As a journalist,
having for some timo edited the
British Ohmmiiiax, ns a public
■nan with the experience of the legislative councillor, a member of legislature, rvprivrrte member and a
minister of the crown. Mr. Robson
is eminently qualified to givo practical opinions and reliable information, with refeifinro to the Pacific
Province. Ho is a "Liberal," but
wc imagine of that class which
nourishes contempt for country-
killers and nation-destroyers under
the name and guise of a p'li'ty combination. , As all events, tho candid
un veneered account of British Columbia's present, and the prospects
of a future of increased prosperity—
whether Mr Robson be Liberal or
Conservative, Grit or Tory—will'be
read with pleasure by all who desireto
see each Province thoroughly tlovo-
lopcd, and satisfied to assist in working out the great national problem
every man must hope to seo happily
solved. The mineral, lumber, agri-
cultual anil commercial resources of
British Columbia, bid fur to place
her in tho front rank of that galaxy
of provinces forming confederation.
Her people are industrious, hardy,
loyal nnd progressive, and every
IrueCniimliaii, will rejoice to loam,
tlmt the population returns record a
marked increase, both in point of
numbers, and character of new arrivals.— Ottawa Citizen, Oct. 17.

Stone, editor, of tlie Telephone, was
killed on Friday ot Taleqouh, Cherokee Nation, by E. .0. Baudinot, jr.,
editor Cherokee Advocate. The killing
arose out of a political muddle now
agitating the Cherokee people. The
Telepltime, which is the organ of May's
party, used severe language about
Boudinot, whose paper is run in-the
interest ofthe Rabbit Bunch or National party. Bounding went to
Stone and demanded an apology or retraction, when Stone mode a move as
if1 to draw a pistol, and Boudinot shot
him. , ;-
STARVING SCHOOL CHILDREN.
Vienna, Oct. 24.—The inquiry re
cently instituted into the condition of
tho Vienna poor attending elementary
schools has resulted in the appalling
discoveries that upwards of 4,000 ohildren were Buffering from' the pangs nf
hunger, some of tliem being on the
verge of starvation. A work of relief
is now going on, and hotel and restaurant keepers are feeding large numbers of children every dny.
ASKED TO RESIGN.
Washington, Oct. 24.—It is reported to-day at the department of the
interior that the resignation of Gen.
Sparks has been demanded by Secretary Lnnrrrr, by authority of the president. It is explained that the retirement of Sparks has become necessary,
not only on account of luck of harmony between him and Lamar, but
also from tho fact that in some cases
he hud obstinately adhered to his own
views in his official acts, after a reversal of his decision by the secretary of
tho interior.
DON'T WANT I'llAMllERLAlN.
Washington, Oct. 24.—Some days
ago it was reported from London that
tho American government had intimated to the British authorities that
Joseph Chamberlain would be a very
undesirable man to represent England
upon the fisheries commission whioh is
shortly to meet here. West, British
consul here, denied all knowledge of
anv such action on the part of the U.
S., and state department officials pronounce the story without foundation.
Thero is no doubt, however, that the
state department, in common with the
rest of the country, thinks that Chamberlain may prove a Jonah to the commission, and it is said on reliable authority that Bayard has seriously considered tho advisability of asking the
substitution of some one else. It is
stated to-day thnt the subject will be
brought to tho attention of the cabinet at its first meeting this week, and
as the president thinks with the secretary of state that tho presence of
Chamberlain may jeopardize the
chances of it. ratification of any treaty
which etui bo negotiated, it is likely
Minister Phelps will receive instructions by cable to ask that another and
less objectionable diplomat be selected.
THE FOST SPEAKS.
Washington, Oot. 24.— The Pott,
whioh assumes to be the r.rc-an of the
iitlininistratioti, has a column leader
to-day devoted tn tho political career
of Mr. Chamberlain. It closes significantly as follows: "Tho ministry sonds
him to America to uid in the settlement of tlio fisheries contention. Recent events at homo will not bo reassuring trr his political plans nnd prospects, but really wo havo littlo use for
this isolated statesman among us."

A murderer's confession.
Sas Franoisco, Oot 24.—A mott
profound seusation has been caused .
throughout the oity by the announcement of the suicide of Henry Ben-
haynn and his confession of having
poiBoned his sister, Mrs. Cecilia Bowers, for whose murder Dr. J. Hilton
Bowers is under penalty of death.
While she was living with bar hut-
band, Dr. Bowers, he was constantly
in attendance upon her., During iier
illuess he administered the medicinea .
prescribed by the dootor, taking the
opportunity to mix in a quantity: of
phosphorus with eaeh, which finally
caused her death. Benhayon'i purpose in killing his sister was to obtain
possession of the insurance upon her
life. Her husband had originally been
made beneficiary, but without his
knowledge his wife had transferred
that right to her brother, making him
the person to whom all money was to
be paid;. When the death of Mn.
Bowers occasioned such intense excitement her murderous brother oon';
ceuled the transfers and aided in the
conviction of Dr, Bowers for the
crime. "I must end my misery," was
the wail which wound .up the letter
of confession to the coroner. When
tho news of Benhsyon's confession -
was carried to Bowers at the county
jail, the effect was electrical. He became intensely excited, wept like a'
child, and words of gratitude tor lib
prospective deliverance flowed ttom
his lips.

WESTMINSTER HONORED.   .
London, Oct 24.—Several thousand unemployed workmen marched in
a body from Trafalgar square to Westmlnstor Abbey this afternoon; the
leader of which carried a red tSg.
1200 of them were admitted without
opposition. Many kept their hats on,
whistled and sat upon the pedestal of
the statues. Others mited with th*
regulsr audience, but tha giasttr
portion of the lttter departed,
as soon as practicable, laa.iig'
strangers almost sole possessors. The
unwelcome visitors offered no violence,
but showed a disregard for the plaoe'
by indiscriminate conversation, tobacco chewing, copious expectorating, etc.
During the first lesson they grew bolder and loudly jeered the reader, drowning hiB voice. This conduct wss repeated at the second lesson. Canon
Protherd preached from Romans 12,
1, "I beeseoh yon, therefore, brethren,
by the mercies of God, that ye present
your bodies a living sacrifice, holy and
acceptable, unto God, which is your
reasonable service." He argued that
the punishment of lawbreaker, was
nuecssary for good of the community.
This evident application of personal argument was not favorably received. There
was disorder und cries of "Oh, bosh."
The preacher made an earnest appeal for
order, and entreated his hearer, to try
and uproot evil and plant good Id it.
place. Some ono oried out "That's what
wo arc going to do" amid criw of "hear"
"hear" and cheers. Cation Prothero realising that the ordinary style of sermonizing would not be nccepted by bis
novel audience, now threw his notes
aside and addressed himself direetly to
the unruly crowd. He declared that
while legislation alone could provide,
a remedy for their hunger and suffering everybody could feel and express
sympathy for them. This seemed to
strike crowd in a humorous sens* tor
there was dovisive laughter and odes
of "that's all we shall get" The canon went on to say that charitable
agencies might do'much, this was greeted by the cry "we don't Want charity
wo want work." The preacher got
along better when he declared himself
in favor of state aid for the destitute.
At the close of the service, however the
audience gave their opinion of tha proceeding by vigorously hissing .ah thoy
marched out. They 'were loudly
cheered by their companions
outside as they mtdo their appearance.
The whole party then manned noisily
back to Trafalgar square, and speeehs*
were made, denouncing the ohuroh for
failure to to alleviate the condition of
the poor and condemned the polioe for
brutality. There were several arrests
made, the charges registered againit
prisoners being brawling and stealing.

Haadajr Kvealif. Oct, M, 1
Our cotemporary of the Vancouver News evidently misapprehends the position of the Southern
Railway project "When the possibilities of traffic are such," he
says, "as will make the construction
of the road reasonably remunerative, we shall obtain it without having to give thousands of dollars or
acres of lands to a few promoters
for their own benefit, and to the
impoverishment of the province.
The experience of the island railroad should have taught us a lesson
which it will be to our interests not
to forget" There is no ground
upon which the Southern Railway
ean be compared with the island
road. The promoters of the Southern Railway have never asked an
acre of land or a dollar of bonus
either from the government or the
people. All they ask is that the
charter shall be allowed, and the
road will be built entirely by private
funds. The charter is held by the
Westminster board of trade, in
trustj to be used solely in the public
interest. It is not proposed that
this raad shall compete with the
0. P. R, or interfere with any existing interest, either public or private, but its promoters believe it
will be the means of developing the
resources of an important seotion of
this district, and largely increasing
the trade of the province and the
great national highway.
The Nanaimo free Press of Saturday intimates that Mr. T. B.
Humphreys returned from Comox
last Friday looking "extremely ill"
after his canvass of that district.
It also says: "We learn from private
sources that the people of Comox
will hold a meeting and choose one
from among themselves to represent
them in the local house. It is pretty
generally understood among the settlers of Comox that the coming man
will be a resident .nd not a worn
out politician who has tried nearly
every constituency in the province
and been rejected at the polls. We
think that the people of Comox, as
well as those of other districts, will
be adopting the wisest course in
choosing one from among themselves." We observe, however, that
our local cotemporary of the Guardian vigorously advocates the claims
of Mr. Humphreys to the constituency, and strongly advises the electors to make him their representative. The foot of his being a nonresident does not strike our local
cotemporary as in the least objectionable. "It is the purest bun-
oom," says onr cotemporary, "to urge
this against Mr. Humphreys;" and
in proof he raters to the fact that
several of the ministers are not residents of the constituencies they
represent! This is an old subterfuge of our ootemporary. How
could a man attend to his duties as
minister and reside any distance
from the capital! At the last elec
tion our cotemporary urged the
electors to reject non-residents: now
he thinks the objection is the
"purest bunconi." As applied by
him, we think bo too; but we hope
Comox will never elect such a man
as Mr. Humphreys.
The Free Press ventures to express the opinion that in all respects
Nanaimo is much more favorably
situated for smelting works than
Westminster, Vancouver, or Vioto-
ria. It has a plentiful supply of
coal right at its door, and the cost
of bringing iron ore from Texada
Island would, the Free Press thinks,
be very much less than to bring it
to this oity. Of course Victoria is
out of the question as a location for
suoh works. It has neither coal,
wood, nor water. But our Nanaimo
cotemporary scarcely states the case
fairly. If the reduction of iron ore
is to be the only occupation of the
works, Nanaimo would undoubtedly
possess very important advantages
over the mainland cities in consequence of her proximity to the coal
fields. Bat the cost of bringing
iron on from Texada to this city
would be very little, if any, greater
than to Nanaimo. Our cotemporary, however, loses sight entirely of
tht fact that one of the chief ob-
jects contemplated in the establishment ot these works is the reduction
of lead ores and ores of the precious
metals, and these will come from
the mainland, principally by the
0. P. R. If they had to be carried
to1 Nanaimo they must be transhipped either hen or at Vancouver,
and tha eost ot carrying them across
the straits, would be a very considerable item. At this oity the ores
could ha taken from the cars right
at the fumeaas, and ooal from Wei-
lington could alto be laid down
without transhipment. Reduction
works 'to' be successful must be
located on ths mainland, and there
is a* point on the mainland so fav-
orably situated for that industry as
Westminster. W* have abundance
of wood ttA fresh water, and all
the other materials required can be
laid down hen without transhipment
•nd tt as low a cost as at any other

UAUO HAS A RIVAL,
r:to Wonderful Private Record Made tre
IVllllam Baeketellefs «.y Mr-oM
.    BajMa»e.
Tin ii tlo marj Flemsoe hns just mado
r iiriviito roi'onl which suggests that she
;.iy y/'t lijironij tho rival ol great Maud
:. A Imv days ajjo Mr. William Kocko-
I lor, who ia hor owner, decided to make
i itrst ol hor powers, aa she was in prime
r n Irtion, his track superb ami the
...Mitiut- just iry.it to bring out all hir
i Mors. A few Irieuds woro invited to
r.r. liiwkoleller'a prlvatj irack, about
liree miles back of tli.) railway station in
...ejnwieh, Conn., to witni'ss tho teat.
Mr. Boirkefollnr wnj iro.ilUcnt thnt alio
ivrjuld; trot betMr tli in 2.30, while his
Iliver thought ahj lurgUl do evou better
dim 2.19.
The mare was brought out and given
raa turn to warm her up, and it was at
Drum seen that siu was in line condition.
At the word she went away, doing the
Hint quarter In as steady nnrl firm a step
us ever a trotter attained, and at a 2.20
gait. On the last halt, without seeming
to strain a muscle, ami without any
special urging, she increased her speed
mil came down the home-stretch as
sternly as when she began, and made the
hrint in 2.10.
This is remarkable time for a four-
year-old, especially on a track which,
though excellent, is not particularly fast.
Ol course it. is not a record except private, but the time was accurately taken.
This little mare is a bay, as lundsouirdy
built and proportioned as Mead S. and is
- only four years old. If she keeps in good
condition there is littlo doubt that she
will by-and-by make a record that will
run very close to the Queen's best work.
But it is doubtful whether she will ever
be seen on a public truck. Mr. Rockefeller is vehr much like Mr. Bonner. Ho
prefers to Keep his stable lor his own
Sratification and that of his friends,
lough he has been urged to allow
some of his noted horses to appear on
the track,
Mr. Rockefeller is the president of the
•Standard Oil Crimp my. His pleasures,
until very recently, have beju limited to
his splendid stalile. A few years ago he
louglit sixty n r,'S on the crest of a
s gntly ridge in Ureeiiwhich, and, without stint lu uxp 'inj, laid out the most
vxt"nsive and iu somo respects the most
1> rfect private trotting park in this
roiintry. A very high and thick granite
wnil bounrls it.: It ulloirls rich pasturage
frir his hora.rs. A perfect view of Long
Is an I sound in obtained from the stable,
n 11 the air U ever exhilarating. Here
his famous double team, Independence
rind Cleva were Drought an I here on the
half-mile track lliey have made their best
record, What it is only those whom Mr.
liockeleller permits to know have learned,
but it was sntim'itirtory to him. Besides
Ihesj and thu littli bay mare whose remarkable record, has just been described,
ha has some thirty other horses, all
I ood, some very valuable, and the whole
mi I is estimated to be worth not far
from $200,0J0.
Here, early in the Slimmer mornings,
the ruler ol the Standard OU company
rat his money's worth in speeding the
horses, w.tchtiiK their improvement, and
no.v and then putting them to their best
cd'orts lor a private record. But he is
wholly unlike Mr. Bonner in one respect.
Bonner likes to talk about.hb horses. It
d liuhts him to take a friend to see Maud
ri. or old Dexter or the other marvels in
his stable. Rockefeller on the other
h in I is whist nliout his stables. He is
ticrttirniuhis pleasures us his business,
a very raw thing with rich New Yorkers.
And d ly after day, w'.ieti Iho dawn ia be-
hit dlsaiprted by the sun, this master of
manv millions, atone with his driver and
employes, relrashes himself for his day's
work with these costly playthings; lor
they are nothil g but that to him.
It is strain tbat though Mr. Rock*
MiertaabRlb find bis chief recreation
with his horses, he Is not particularly
loud ot driving, and, as a reihsnun, is
not the equal if his brother, John D.
Rockefeller, the former president of the
Standard Oil company. William Rockefeller is a man of fine physique. His
shoulders are broad, his arms lusty, and
lie stands firm on his feet and doesn't
walk with the quick, nervous motion
that is characteristic ol many New Yorkers who carry "enormous business responsibilities upon their shoulders. Ue
lim the grip of an athlete and the nam
of a much-tried and successful man,
John 0. Rockefeller, his brother, ii a
small man. His figure gives no idea of
physical strength, si thu face does ol
mental power, and he would bo one ol
tho lost men to be selected to hold the
r. ins ol a trotter; clipping along at a 2.20
gait That power would be readily
recognized u William Rockefellers. And
yet John D. is much the better reinsman.
I Ie ha* not so large a stable as William
nor has he any hones aa celebrated aa.
In Ifik-ndence and Cleva, nor a Flemsoe
th it Is to be. But Midnight is a pretty
iiood stepper, and on the boulevard John
I'., .Sunday school superintendent oa he
I -, can bring out all the speed thete is In

William, this summer, however, has
given his amotion to tha Habit, for

work of Improving his neW estate, near

A BAD STORY.
About the Awful _tparlenoe of a Monk-
It was a dork and cold night in winter;
tbe clock of Suint-Nizier-do-Marcigiiy
had just struck nine; the Church of the
Convent of tho Kecollcts was illuminated
only by the flickering lump; and tho
silenco was broken only by the whistling
of a gusty wind that blew the Hying snow
against the window panes. In s rite of
the rigor of tho season nnrl the advanced
hour, a woman was piously kneeling on
tlie stone floor not far from the principal
altar. All at once she seemed to hear
distant groans mingling with the tumult
of the tempest She listened; the plaints
seemed to be repeated. She was seined
with trembling; but, In spiti of it, she
went forward some step3 iu the direction
of the sound, nnd distinguished a hollow
voice culling at intervals and with great
ellort, "Help, brother Kecollcts, help 1 O
God, take pity on me I"
A prey to unspeakable terror, tho
woman rushed from tho church, rang at
the convent gate and demanded to sec
the prior instantly. Tho latter, being
her spiritual director, and knowing the
austere life of his penitent, thought that
she had been the victim of an aberration
of the senses, caused by oxecssivo fasting
and attached no importance to the fuet,
of which he saw no other ]ilansil»lc explanation. He therefore reassured her
as woll as he could and dismissed her as
soon as he saw sho was more calm.
A month later ono of the Uecollets
Fathers died. His body, follow ',1 by all
the religious and by a large multitude of
laymen, was taken to the church. Tho
services ended, the cortege moved
toward the vault of the convent It was
situated beneath the church, nnd was
reached by means of a flight of steps
communicating with one of the side
chapels and the entrance was closed
with a heavy stone. When they reached
Ihe chapel, some of thoso presont united
their forces to remove the stonn. As
soon as a ray of light had ill ia unrated
llie entrance to the vault they beheld a
spectacle which they greeted with cries
of horror. A corpse in the habit of a
monk was kneeling on the upper steps,
with face turned toward the ground.
The features preserved the express.o r of
acute agony; deep bites in the hinds
and the lower arms attested that thu unfortunate being had fought for long
hours against tho torture of hunger.
His habit, his shoulders and the skin on
Iho crown of his head had been worn by
rubbing against the unyielding stone,
which he had vainly struggled to lilt:
and his contracted mus'des, which still
showed themselves in bold relief against
the skin, proved that death alone had
put au end to his desperate efforts. It
was the body of a young brother who
had beeu laid in the tomb tho month before. M. Lonormand says that this took
Slaco a lew years before the great French
Evolution, at Mureigny (.Saone-et Loire)
and that at the time lie wrote there were
some lew old people still living there
who recollected the facte.
•■Bsn's a State of Things 1"
I recall a case that got Into the courts a
short time ago which singularly illustrates
this lax morality and general! depravity.
I shall disguise it only by the omission of
names, but I have no doubt the parties
thereto will recognize themselves. A
young man became enamored of a German broker's wife. He frightened the
llmid Dutchman out of the country and
subsequently furnished the abandoned
wile falsified proof that her husband was
dead. He married her—in fact married
her twice. Subsequently he became
enamored of another man's wife, the
latter obtained a divorce on the ground
of adultery, and the lover, abandoning
his first wife, took the divorce out of tha
state, married her, published the fact of
the marriage, returned to Now York aud
lived openly with No. 2. Wife No. 1 had
him arrested and he pleaded that her
first husband was not dead. She set up
that sbe was never married to the Gorman broker, and the adventurous husband was held for the grand jury; but
tlio Indictment was thrown out on the
opinion of tho district attorney that thero
was a first marriage with tho German and
none with the second husband. One of
tho lawyers in the case was at that time
living with the wife of a former client
with that client's knowledge aud consent
The opposing lawyer was living with the
divorced wife of a former partner without
interference from tbo partner, and with
the knowledge and acquiescence of his
own wife. And the opinion of tho district
attorney was written by an assistant who
had two wives on his hands at the time.
If the case had come to trial on indictment it would havo stood a strong chance
of being tried before a justice who has
two wives living, and was then in contempt of his own court for marrying a
second time against a decree of divorce
depriving him of the right to marry again
during his first wife's life. "Heres a
state of things."—.Yew York Cor. Cincinnati Ctamnxw*. _ .

' ^^'     IaThol_|_aadi,
A correspondent ol the Boston Trim-
icrijii writing from near Balmoral iu the
Highlands of Scotland says: The trans-
formation of several correct gentlemen,
faultlessly arrayed in London clothes, into Highland chieftains, is daily taking
place Before one's eyes. When the
Scotch gentlemen, or even Englishmen
having places in Scotland, come up here,
they Immediately put on kills. In the
morning, when they are shooting or
tramping over the moors, they wear wol-
len kilts, and carry a hunting knife, in-
•Mad of tbe regulation dagger In theli
stocking leg. But in the evening they
appear at dinner in tartans of beautiful
weave, with a jewelled dagger sticking
out of their right stocking leg. Not only
the gentlemen, but their upper servants
put on kilts, and, if anything, the change
in the servants is more startling than thai
In tbe masters, Mr, Paumure-Gordon ig
a great landed proprietor up here. Hla
coachman, who was oho of the most immaculate jehus in London, sitting up on
the box as rigid as iron, and looking as II
he were made at the same time and of
the same stuff as 'he carriage, came up
to the Highlands, and suddenly turned
into a Highlander, and a rampageous
Highlander at that, and wheenod and

Trojan,  It waa really alarming to see

la a common expression, often beard
from thoso who have realized, by personal uso, the onrativo powers of Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. ** I cannot say enough
In pralso of Ayor's Cherry Pectoral, he-
lioving as I do that, hut for its use, I
Should long since havo died from lung
troubles.—E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
Abont six months ago I had n severe
Hemorrhage of tho Lungs, brought on
hy a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of sleep and rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
Without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try
Ayor's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say tbat It
helped me at once. By continued use
tills medicine cured my cough, and, I
am sattofled, saved my life. —Mrs. E.
Coburn, 18 Second St., Lowell, Mass.
I havo used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severo Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took the remedies thoy
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
until I began UBing Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health.—Lizzie

Thii. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
The Security offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business in Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, its cub itatcment showing every item of Income and how expen-
Its position lsnseertalned annually from
a detailed valuation In wbloh every Item
of liability Is Included.
IU progress has been unexampled In
tbe history of Insurance In Canada,
IU policies are Indisputable after threo
years, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.
IU profits are distributed upon an equitable basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger proUU to any other olass. which
method affords superior advantages over
tbe uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Journal of Commerce Special,
Dr, A. E. Uray arrived in the city
yesterday from Vanoouver, and will
remain here seme days obtaining
materials for the British Columbia
number of the San Francisco Journal
of Commerce which is to appear shortly. The doctor reports that a large
edition of this special number has boon
taken at Victoria and Vancouver, and
he thinks Westminster a place of sufficient importance to justify him in
expecting equally liberal patronage.
He is accompanied by Mr. A. D.
Gihon, a San Francisco artist, who is
taking sketches for the illustrations of
tho special number.

something very lMftcrettt.
Tho Colonist of yesterday prints tho
following telegram, dated Ottawa, Oct.
22nd: "In conversation with your
corresponont, Hon. John Robson said
he thought it was rather hard that at
the very moment ho was doing his best
with the Dominion ministers to clear
the way for tho Westminstor Southern
Railway ho was accused of 'giving it
away.' Ho said ho was not Buprisodat
the Times and Guardian seizing upon
untruthful items which havo appeared
upon the subject but ho was surprised
to find the Westninstcr council apparently so ready to believe .this state1
ment. 'Why,' Baid Mr. ltobson,
'Thero are fow inou moro ^interested
Jersonally in that road than I nm, and
vouturo to think it has few moro
loyal and earnest supporters." Thore
is no reason to doubt that tho statements of the provincial secretary, ns
published in tho Free Press, wero
wholly inaccurate and entirely misleading. 	
John Hays, Credit P. O., says: "His
shoulder was so lame for nine months
that he could not raise his hand to
his head, but by the uso of Dr.
Thomas' Kclectric Oil the pain and lameness disappeared, and although three
months has elapsed, ho has not had an
attack of it since."

Mr. Peter Vermott, Hoehelaga, P. Q.,
writes! "Dr. Thoinoa' Eclectric Oil cured
me of Rheumatism after I tried many
medicines to no purpose. It is a good
medicine." Just think of It—yon can

A Fractions Bullock.
Yostcrdiiy morning while a herd of
VaiiViilkonbiirgh's cattlo wero being
driven tu Vancouver ono of thorn u mug-
niliciirnt bullock, waa found tube laiiio
nnd it uris considered boat tu leave it
behind. On attempting to turn it
buck tbo animal commenced to act
strangely and mado a numbor of fiorco
attacks on tho horses and also rushed
nt sevoral foot passengers, who, how-
over, managed to escape without injury. Tho animal finally took its
Btriud on vaiicuut lot opposite Mrs Major's residence from where it glared defiantly at all passers by. As it was
church timo and many people _weft
passing terliidfroitwilB decided to kill tho
bullock in case somo serious aecidont
should occur. Ono of tho moii was
despatched for a riflo and returning
slurt it through tho brain, killing it
instantly. Tho caraiBO was then convoyed to tho slaughter house and on
being butchered it was found that its

Southern Bailway et Alia.
What llie Provincial ftccre»ary Said lo
the Ollawn Cltlien.
The Ottawa Citizen of the 17th inst.
publishes a report of an interview with
Bon. John Robson on various sub*
jects, from whieh we make the following extracts: Being iiskod whether this
province had made muoh progress
since confederation, he said: "Comparatively bo; but to us on the Pacific
confederation meant little without the
C.P.B. Sinco the completion of thnt
gigantic work ita effects for good have
been very marked bo far as British
Columbia is concerned. Without the
railway we wero isolated: through it
we are in real, practical union with
the rest of the Dominion, and in touch
with the world." After stating that
the population of tho provinco may
now safely bo estimated at 80,000,
and that most of tho many tourists
visiting the country went away delight-
ed, he said: "Theooal
MININO ISDUBTItY
is flourishing. The placer gold mining
shows some improvements; but although our quartz ledges ace believed
to bo rich and very extensive, very
little has boon accomplished in the
way of actual development. Capitol is
tho great want, and, indeed, it is
doubtful whother anv .very extensive
quartz mining will take placo in Car-
riboo, the Rivrit quartz centre, until
railway communication shall have
materially reduced tho exponso of
working the lodges with which that
part of tho provinco is known to
abound. I may state that a quartz
lodge of great richness is now being
worked at Illicillewaet by Mr. G. B.
Wright." Referring to the Cariboo
Railway ho said: "Tho province is not
in a position to undergo so Inrge a work
alone; but wo hope to obtain substantial federal aid, as the road would
prove of great federal as well as provincial advantage. British Columbia
has boon, not inaptly, called a 'ma of
mountains'; but in tbo trough of the
' seas' lie great timber and agricultural resources, whilo in the crest of the
waves are to be found unbounded
Btoces of the precious inutals. Taxpayers in tho old provinces are accustomed to talk about what British Columbia cost the Dominion; but let the
federal government only aid in opening
up our stores of latent wealth, and it
will soon bo found that the Pacific
province is the richest and most profitable member of the confederation.
Even already its excessive contribution
to the federal treasury in tho form of
customs duties wculd more than pay
tho interest on all that has been expended upon it." In reply to the que-
tion whether this was the only
KAILWAY
tho province had in view, the hon,
gentleman said: " No; there is the extension of the £. A N. R. to the head
of Vancouver Tsland, and the Shuswap
& Okiuiagnu. And then thero is the
Southern Railway, running from
WcKtmiii'ter to connect with the
American railway system, The survey
for tiio extension of the island lino is
in progress. The survey of tho Shu-
Btvap A- Okanagan Railway was made
last yonr. This road will be an important feeder to the 0. P. R, by supplying flour for return cargoes for tho
Trans-Pacific line of steamers. It is
believed that tho Westminster Southern will also act ns a feeder to the C.
P. R." When anked what business
had brought him to Ottawa, and what
progress ho had made, tha provincial
secretary replied: "The 6m of your
questions I would rather not answer.
As to the Becond, I may say generally
that bo far I have been met in a spuit
which encourages me to anticipate
satisfactory rcsulta."
Mrs. A. Nelson, Brantford, writes: "I
was a sufferer from Chronic Dyspepsia
for eleven years. Always after eating,
an intense burning sensation' in thu stomach, at times very distressing, caused a
droonins and languid feeling, which
would lost for several hours after eating.
I was recommended by Mr. Fopplewefl,
Chemist, of our oity, to try Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and I am thankful to say
that I have not been better for yearn;
that burning sensation and languid feeling has all gono, and food does not He
heavy on my stomach. Others of my
family have used it with best results."
