gaUg glwtiali Coltrmbian
t-rlday Evening, Sept. 3. Man.
It ill announced that the Canadian Pacific telegraph system will be
ready for the transaction of commercial and other business in the course
of a few days. This announcement,
.of course, Will be received with general satisfaction, There will, how
ever, be less enthusiasm than there
would otherwise have been, in consequence of the added statement
that it iaaot int-oded to make any
reduction in tht present ratss. So
far as eastern Canada is concerned
this may not be unreasonable, but it
is to be hoped an exception will bo
made of the Canadian Northwest.
Here the present, rates, both for
commercial and press business, are
altogether too high.' The commercial rate is the highest that prevails
on the continent, and is altogether
inexcusable in view of the large
amount of business exchanged between this portion of the Dominion
and oastern Canada. A lower rate
than at present prevails we believe
would pity both companies, as it
would lead to many communications
being sent by wire that are now entrusted to the less speedy facilities
afforded by her majesty's mails.—-
Winnipeg Sim.   .
Seventy-Six Suicides.
The story is cabled from Europe
of a lady who lost some $60,000 at
the Monte Carlo gaming tables, and
Who in despair committed suicide.
It is added, as an awful commentary on the tragic record of Monaco
ihat this self-murder makes the
leventy-sixth case since the season
wgan. Monaco, the name of the
irincipality ,of which Monte Carlo
s the larger part, is the oldest and
imallest kingdom in the world. Its
irea is eight and a third square
oiles, its army numbers soventy-
wo men, and its total population
ibout 7,000 persons. The tourist
rho visits it—aud every one who
[oes to Nice rides on nine miles east
0 Monaco—is informed that art
rrow oan be shot over it in any
irection, and yet it is the center of
ambling in Europe. Tlie climate
i delightful, it rivals even Nice as
watering-place, and Baden in its
itlmiest days is eclipsed by this
plendid seat of sin. In the year
869 all taxes in this diminutive
irincipality were abolished, and the
o venues are now derived entirely
rom the rent of the Casino, where
laming is carried on. Gambling, or
ather the gaming establishment, is
h the hands of a joint-stock com-
iany with a oipital of fifteen mil-
ion francs, or about $3,000,000.
[he inhabitants of Monaco are not
lermitted access to the gaming
jables. They, however, have a deep
nterest in the game, as it is by it
ihey are secured complete exemp-
;ion from taxation, while at tho
lame time large prices are pnid for
he use df their lands in the principality. It is thirty years since
;ambling tables were introduced
nto Monaco, in the days when the
-resent small reigning prince came
nto possession of hit kingdom.
Homburg, in the Wiesbaden government distriot of tlie Prussian
irovince of Hesse-Nassau, had long
teen famous, or infamous, for its
gambling tables. It, too, was a
watering-place back aa far as 1834.
Fashion mado it a favorite abode of
the wealthy. Austria sent troops
n 1849 to stop gambling, which had
wen prohibited by imperial decree,
rhe peculiar institution suspended,
rat immediately renewed its demoralizing traffic upon the withdrawal
if the soldiery; Prussia finally, in
1872, refused to renew the lease for
[ambling purposes, and that was
he end of it. Among the leading
jpirits who had. flourished for a time
& Homburg and had then fled was
ine M. Blanc, who was given a cor-
lial reception at Monaco. The
Uonto Carlo thereafter became a
lame known the civilized world
iver. Nothing is wanted to attract'
ind retain the visitor, especially if
ie or she be wealthy, for both sexes
requent the tables. There is no
ind of play-rooms, ball rooms, dun-
ling-rooms, reading-rooms; and concerts are given daily. The sports-
nan oan have his pigeon shooting
n Januafy, aud races at statetl sea-
ons. All these are' under the eon-
roi of ihis company, who conduct
heso vast establishments to make
noney rather than to make chancer. The hotels are among the fin
•t in Europe. The princedom,
bus supported by the earnings of
he gaming tables; has also modem
onveniences, sueh as a harbor, a
jewspaper, a palace, and, like all
ood, enterprising Mediterranean
owns, haB a first-class patron saint,
fho is turned to excellent account
ry having an attractive fete (riven
n his honor annually. — Chicago

after the elections, but tlmt expectation has been disappointed. Tho
season is now so far advanced that
the expenditure of any considerable
sum on new roads woultl lie ex- j
treinely unwise, for it will not be
long before the rainy season will be
upon us, und a large percentage of
the expenditure would be lost. We j
do not know the cause of thc delay
in undertaking roadwork, but the
disappointment is very keen and
widespread throughout the district.
On the 28th inst. the annual agricultural exhibition will be held at
Chilliwlmck. This exhibition is
second in importance only to tho
provincial exhibition, and in somo
respects it is usually second to none.
Lust year thore was considerable
disappointment at the small number
of exhibits in some of the departments, as well as the lack of merit.
More than once we heard people remark that they had better stuff at
home than anything shown in some
of tho departments, but they did
not consider it worth bringing. This
is a great mistake, the folly of
which we have pointed out more
than once. Bring the best you have
got, and be sure to bring something,
even if you are certain of receiving
no prize. If agricultural exhibitions are to lie successful, people
must make up their minds to take
a little troublo to make them so.
We hope to see an exceptionally
line exhibition at Chilliwhack this
year.
the Salmon Run.
An article appeared in this papor
a short time ago in relation to thc
failure of the salmon run on Fraser
Kiver this season. It was intimated
that the cause of the failure may
have been the obstructions at the
mouth of the rivor caused by the
large number of nets stretched out
there, without leaving a passage for
the fish. In his official report to
the minister of marine and fisheries
last year, Capt. Pittendrigh, then
inspector of fisheries for this province, made the following observations: "I shall this year, with your
approval, increase the distance between nets when drifting over the
sandheads outside the river from
250 to 400 yards. This action is
requisite through nearly all the fishermen assembling at this point and
forming almost a complete Wrier
of nets, thereby drawing the salmon
into minor channels." This extract
shows that Capt. Pittendrigh believed the practice pursued by the
fishermen on the sandheads to be
prejudicial to the interests of the
fishing industry. We hope the matter will receive prompt and careful
attention from the proper authorities.

Effective Advertising.
If Britisli Oolumbia is not well
advertised this year, we don't know
any country that ia.    Between the
great colonial exhibition that is being   held in London, the Canadian
Pacilic  Railway, the new Pacific
steamship line, the direct tea trade,
the new telegraph company, and the
scores of  distinguished mon  who
are carrying to every corner of the
civilized globe wonderful reports of
our wonderful province, we ought to
lw pretty well known and appreciated everywhere.     Scarcely a train
•from the east arrives without some
distinguished member of the Canadian parliament, or of the imperial
parliament, or some person standing
high in tlie commercial circles of
the commercial world. With scarcely an exception these people carry
away from us the most delightful
recollections.   They are charmed by
,   our climate, charmed by our scenery,
and delighted with everything. With
tho natural attractions and vast resources of this provinco it is the
opinion of  visitors generally that
we have a great future before us.
It is the interest of the Canadian
Pucitic Railway to advertise British
Columbia and to promote in every
possible way the development of its
resources   and   the increase of its
population.     Just now a supreme
effort is being put forward to secure
foreign trade for the road.     But
foreign   trade  can nevor bo very
profitable whore  competition is ro
keen and where there are so many
different route's.     It is the local
trade that pays, and it is the local
tmde   that all   carriers seek most
anxiously  to promote.     For this
reason .all  steamboat and railway
companies become active colonization agents, because in this way they
are building up a future profitable
business for themselves. , Among all
the  influences at work thore is a
fair prospect of rapid development
for this country, and during that
development tliere ought to bo a fair
chance   for   every  ono  to  make
money.

The grent popularity of this preparation,

it is really meritorious, Tliose who have

it does ull that is claimed.
It causes new growth of liair on bald
beads—provided the hair follicles nre not
dend, which is seldom the wise: restores
natural color to gray or faded lmlr; preserves lhe scalp healthful and clear of
dandruff; prevents tho lmlr falling off or
changing color; keeps it soft, pliant, lustrous, and causes it to grow long nnd

of New Westminster will commence
to-morrow. Tliose intending to take
part will go over tho river, in uniform,

The Mail Service.—For some time
past we have been complimenting the
O. P. N. Co. on tho very excellent
mail and traffic aervice it gave us between this city and Viotoria. We are
aorry that anything should have occurred to interrupt that condition of
affairs, but really the service this week
has been inexcusably irregular and
unsatisfactory.

Strangers who have oome to look for

A safer investment could not easily be

New Trade.—Among freight which
arrived on the steamer Evangel from
Seattle this morning was 102,000 cedar
shingles for transhipment over the C

an experiment, a specisl rate having
been made for the purpose, and should
it prove satisfactory a regular weekly
shipment will follow. It is understood
that a considerable trade is likely to
be worked up between the 0. P. R.
and the Sound country, and the probability is that a large proportion of
this year's hop crop will be shipped
east over that line, The shingles will
be the first through freight to leave
the city for tho east by the branch
railway. 	
A State To Be Prodd Of.— You
take old Georgia. I'm proud of her.
If anybody asks you where I live, tell
them I live ill Georgia. Do you hear!
I'm proud of that. Our governor is a
constitutional teetotaller; he won't
touoh it in any shape or form. Ho is
a deacon in the Baptist church, and
loves God and keeps his commandments. The chief justice of our state
will pray all night with a penitent or a
poor sinner that is trying to find God.
United States senators are members of
tbe church of Jesus Christ, and A. H.
Colquitt, the United States senator, is
the grandest prohibitionist worker in
America to-day. And I want to tell
you from the top down, old Georgia is
not only a prohibition state, but ahe
is living on the plan of the ten commandments. We've got decent people
in authority in that state. [A voice-
Democrats, too, ain't they!] Well,
they were until they got religion.

Billy, who is generally short of cosh,

from a till. He lias not since been seen,
and is supposed to havo left for Seattle, whoro ho is well and perhaps more
favorably known than horo. The entrance to thobarbershop waselTeoted
by using'u duplicate kov which was secured in the shop during working
liours. "Billy tho barber" is known
in Victoria, wliere ho worked for a

. ConoxEn's Pees.—It seems prob-
ablo tliat no inquest will lie held in the
case of Mrs. Reid, whose unexpected
death was last woek reported in this
paper. Tho husband of the deceased
was anxious for an inquest on Saturday, but Coroner Trew is away at
Ottawa on an absence of six weeks,
and Coroner McGuigan of Vancouver
could not bo found. Application wns
mado to Mr. W. D. Ferris, who telegraphed the situation to the nttorney-
genernl. Tlie result was thnt Mr.
Ferris was appointed coroner. But
tlu government intimated that it
would not be responsible for payment of fees. Mr. Ferris theu applied to tho city council, but was there
told that ns thu government had appointed liim he must look to the government for his pay. Under these
circumstances Mr. Ferris declined to
go on with the inquest, nnd things
still remain in that unsatisfactory
state. The question Bhould bo settled
without delay. It may be that there
was no need for holding an inquest
in the caso of Mis. Reid. Rumor has
it that her death waB caused by an
over dose of medicine resulting from
an error on the part of tho prescribing physician. There is a counter
rumor to the effect that sho died from
natural causes. If there has been error resulting from carelesanosa it ought
to be known, but it in nut wiso to lot
our conclusions rest upon atreet rumors. No one knows, howover, how
soon a ease may occur whore an inquest
would be indespensiblo, and if the
coroner refuses to act until his pay is
assured nobody could blame him under
tho circumstances. But the circumstances are certainly vory discreditable
to a civilized community.

COMMUNICATIONS.
The So-Oalled Poisoning Case.
Editor Columbian.—-Allow me to explain through your paper the particulars
of tliis case so far as I know them.
If I can put a right construction before
the public I shall be doing my duty. Although the truth Lb not always the most
looked for, I believe it Is what we all
want when rightly disposed. I am anxious that the whole truth nnd nothing
but the truth should be told in this unfortunate case.
Dr, Trew handed me a prescription to
fill for Mrs. Reed (the lady who died);
I filled it the 16th day of August; the
following day Mr. Reed called for and
took it; gave a ublespoonful as ordered;
Mra. Reed had no sooner taken it than
she weut Into convulsions and otherwise
showed signs of distress, vomiting and
straining. To what extent the dose was
ejected I cannot say. The reader gets
the truth when he is told that the dose
was a sharp, sour, bitter one. I want to
state right here that the bottle contained
nothing poisonous; consequently, Mrs.
Reed could not have been poisoned.
Neither did it contain anything hot.
Any one who has taken quinine and acid,
strong, knows it is not (to say the least)
pleasant. •
I did remark to the doctor that the
dose of acid prescribed was too large,
and hesitated about filling it as written,
fearing the stomach would not bear it.
He said I had no right to question the
dose, us he knew what his patient could
take better than I did, I never make a
remark about any doctor's prescription
unless I have reason to believe an omission has been made or the dose excessive.
To put myself in the right light I wish
to explain why I made tne remark that
the dose was too largo. I saw the dose
ordered was two teaspoonfuls of dilute
hydrobromic aoid and about four grains
of quinine with two teaspoon fids of water (in tite mixture).   Hydrobromic acid
ihOUld   mlwtxyts   \.c givon Lwgcly dUnto-l
with sweetened water. While the dose
was the full oue allowed, the absence of
the order to take it iu a large quantity of
sweetened water was the omission which
probably caused the dose to be rejected
by the stomach.
I wish to explain how it became known
that I had made any remark to tlto doctor
about tlie large dose. The day after the
medicine was called for tt was returned
by a child during iny nbaence from the
store. When I came in my clerk said,
"Mrs. Reed has returned a bottle of
medicine with the niessagu that the doctor had told thom it was not right," 1
immediately weut to see the doctor at
his otlice, hut oould not find him. I then
wrote a note to Mrs, Heed explaining
what conversation had taken placo between Dr. Trew and myself relating to
the medicine.
When Mr, Reed uot my notu, he came
to sec me, stating that tho first doso had
sent Mrs, Reed into convulsions, and
otherwise caused Iier to show signs of distress. I assured him there was nothlnu
poisonous In the mixture, and advised
liim to take it back and give in smaller
doses largely diluted with water, which
he did with thc sanction of Dr, Trew (ro
Mr. Reed told mu).
Mrs. Reed, I believe, died the following Thursday, seven days from the day
the dose alluded to was taken. I have
shown the prescription to several doctors
and druggists, all of whom affirm that
thu mixture contains no poison, although
not a nice dose to take.
Yours most respectfully,
D. s. Curtis.

London, Sept. 3.—A violent outbreak
of cholera is reputed at Torredell Annunciation, near Naples, in consequence
of which the religious festival 1ms been
prohibited by the town authorities.
The Dally New »saya: " Prince Alexander has been abandoned and isolated
by agreement of three empires. Nothing
could exceed the humility of his letter to
the czar, which is only equaled in degree by the brutality of the czar's answer."
The Standard says: " Alexander has
committed a serious blunder, and tho only
unworthy act with which he can he reproached. It is carrying the comedy of
courtly dissimulation too far to pretend
that the czar did not approve of the deposition. England has done ber best to
promote peace in the Balkans. If she
fails, Austria and Germany will either
suffer grave injury or make heavy sacrifices. They may yot rue the day they
abandoned Alexander to curry favor
with the czar. Alexander has promised
King Milan to send a diplomatic agent to
Vienna."
London-, Sept. 3.—An attempt was
made to wreck a train conveying Prince
Alexander to Sofia. When near Fhillo*
popolis the engineer discovered un obstruction on the track, and brought the
train to a standstill. On investigation it
waa found that fivo sleepers had been
placed on the track. A conflict between
revolutionists and the following of Alexander is feared at Sofia.
Sofia, Sept. 3.— The revolutionary
regiments here have surrendered unconditionally to Alexander and appealed to
him for clemency, Bulgaria is now tranquil. Alexander, when he reached Bucharest, on his journey to Sofia, telegraphed to the Sultan an assurance of
homage and devotion.
Rome, Sept. 3.*—Cholera returns for

to sleep out of doors. A critical examination shows that all the buildings are

The Laws ok the Medes and Persians were not more immutable than

Probably tho largest literary prizo
ever offered is one of $1,000,000 to bo
given in 1025 by tho Russian National
Academy for tho best work on the life

shortly after the death of Alexander I,
the sum of 50,000 roubles wna offered
by one of his favorite ministers to be
given as a prize a century after his
death, and it is this sum at compound
interests which will amount iu 1025 to
$1,000,000.

if the ruling is enforced a great many
vessels will be compelled to abandon
trade altogether, as they cannot get
cargoes ut Midland or Collingwood,
porta iv here grain is received exclusively. Heretofore American vessels
have carried grain to these two ports
and proceeded from them to one or
the other of tho islands in the bay und
procured cargoes of cedar or salt to
bring back tu Chicago. If this source

seek some other trade.

Cockroach Fighting.
Chicago, Aug. 24.— Chinese residents have been greatly excited over
the outcome of a cockroach tournament which has been going on in the
basement of a down town laundry and
Chinese club house for the lust three
nights. It is the first big tournament
ever held east of the Pacific coast, nnd
was conducted by a party of Chinese
sports who left San Francisco three
weeks ago with nearly fifty trained
fighting cockroaches. Last night it
was reported that the San Francisco
party had left for New York, having
won several thousand dollars trom
local Chinese betting men. The celestial sports arrived here with their animals without mishap last Monday. In
two hours it was known to every Chinaman in the city that the tournament
would begin Wednesday night. About
11 o'clock tho tournament was opened,
a feUherweight tighter being matched
against a middleweight cockroach.
Before the insects were pitted against
each uther they wero handled by
Quang.a Chinaman who had had some
experience in this line in China. With
a minute pair of scissors ho clipped
their wings, and then, just before facing them, greased their bodies with
salve. Tliis is done to prevent the insects catching one another by the
greased portion of each other's bodies,
At a signal the two champions were
dropped into the pit. This was a lurge
urn, shaped like a punch bowl, und
greased on .the edges. The first tight
was one of the best in the wholo tour-
uament. _ When the two roaches
dropped into the bowl thoy sprang at
each other with all lhe fierceness of
bulldogs.   -lust eleven  minutes after
uu- n-tllt Oeffftll thn hitifnnnfc •*■■-*.■*■ A-*,*.
When he died, however, he mortally
woundod his slayer. In tbe last struggle, and despite tho pain caused by
his efforts, he turned in such a manner
that his left fore leg was pulled from
its socket, but in so doing he caught
his advorsary by the throat. The next
instant he died, covered with wounds,
while the'fictor staggered off with a
horrible cut in his throat. Eight battles were fought the first night, it being 2 o'clock before the last battle was
finished. Betting was heavy, and
many uf the local men were winners.
The next night only four battles were
got through with, but thoy wero all
desperato contests, and lasted an hour
each. On the third night thero were
eleven battles, and when the tournament ended the San Francisco Chinamen had nearly all the money of tho
local sports. It was reported that the
Chinaman Quang, who handled the
fighters, had played into the hands ot
the visitors and drugged some of the
bugs.

All Things to all Men.
At a mass meeting of the Salvation
Army held lately in Ottawa tliere were
present members of the army from
several foreign states. Among others
was Major Jul Bhai, a converted Hindoo. This mun became converted
while in England through the efibrts
of tlio Salvation Army, and shortly
afterwards went to India on army
work. Ho addressed the meeting on
tho Indinn work, and suid that four
yours ago when he first'went uut tliere,
the unity officers acted as other missionaries, that is, dressed as .Europeans
and maintained their Europeun modo
of living. This was continued for
eighteen months, during which timo
their BiteeesH was very smull. They
then realized that tho native prejudico
was su intense tlmt they could not hope
to roach tho peoplo unless they discarded their European mode of living.
Following the teaching of the apostle,
"to bo all things to all men," they decided to do this and bo cast asido nll
European attributes. They dressed ns
tho native priests, gavo up their houses
uml slept in the open air with no other
covering than u potato sack, and also
begged thoir food from door to door,
among the natives. Major Jai Bhai's
relation of the trying hardships to
which thoy woro exposed wus amusing.
In bogging for food thoy hud to carry
a smull pitcher, which tho major had
brought with him and hero displayed
to tho audience. At one hut they
would get a handful of rice, nt another
somo curry, so hot as te make them
wish to hang their tongues out to cool
after partaking thereof, and so on, getting a strange mixture nf everything;
a veritable botch potch. The clothing
also wus decidedly cool, a cloth about
thc loins and another over tlie shoulder ' being about all that waa worn.
Last evening he hud on the above
mentioned articles, a turban und a jersey, and seemed to considor himself
quite heuvily clothed. Although theso
harships were great still the success
which immediately followed thoir efforts was enormous, and quite unprecedented. Within a few days over 70
Hindoos were converted, and within
fivo months over 3,000. Tliis great
success was entirely owing to thc appeal to thu native minds which the
adoption of tho native customs entailed. In some places the success at the
mission was most extraordinary. In
one village almost all the inhabitants
were converted, und the Pagan Hag
which used to flout over tho heathen
templo in thc middle of tho village wns
substituted for the Salvation army
banner. It was intended to build a
fence round this village and place sun-
trics nt thc gates with the challenge
for all comers "are you saved." Vory
often they only managed to get one
mcul n day aud would have to go to
bed with a prayer in Hen of supper.
Perhaps one of the most wonderful
successes which had attended their
efibrts was thc gaining of admission to
the mnnnus or hnrems. Thuy hud also
in a measure succeeded in bridging the
almost unfathomable gulf whicli existed between the different castes. Major
Jai Bhai also related several instances
of marvellous escapes from wild beasts
und snakes in the jungles and wilds of
India nnd Ceylon, His description of
India life was listened to with great
interest and especially the vivid description which he gave of tho tortures
to whicli the priests aiul poor Hindoos
would submit in thoir religious ardor.
Once ho wont into a hut und fuund n
priest seeking salvation by sitting on a
bed of iron spikes. In many cases
when natives of high castes embraced
Christianity thoy were subjected to intense persecution ori thu part of tho
relatives. One girl who wus similarly
situated was attacked by a relative, und
stubbed seven times. She recovered,
howover, and wus now a lieutenant in
tho army. Major Jai Bhai explained
that he was desirous of finding recruits
to tako buck for the work in India, nnd
ulso uf obtaining monetary hulp sufficient to pay their passage to that far-
off land. Those who wish to join the
work would liavo to livo liko beggars.
The Home Rule Faiupict.
New York, Aug. 28.—0. W, Smal-
ley's cubio special to the Tribune from
London: The appearance of Gladstone's pamphlet on the Irish question
in a political event of the first magnitude. Tho effect must be ultimately
to dispose of thc Irish question or dispose of < Hailstone. It is uu appeal to
thu constiuencicB, nnd contains some
novel doctrines. Gladstone himself
evidently regards tho occasion as similar to, uud not loss sulouiii than thnt of
1808, when hu was about to disestablish tho Irish church, and of 1870,
when ho rescued Bulgaria, Ou both
occasions ho published similnr appeals*
Nothing that ovor camo from his pen
shows more animation, ingenuity,
youthful energy und hopefulness thnn
his last pamphlet. It pledges his
wholo future to home rule. Whatever
happens never can Gladstone desert
the cause, his advocacy of which, hu
now ."looj-ut-s, was not tho result, nf
Buuuun conviction, but the result of
the- steady and continuous growth of
lm own mind. What tho offuct muy
bu on English public opinion remuins
to be seen. Thero is no sign that ho
is likely to reconquer the affection of
thoso Liberals who renounced their
allegiance to their lender rather thnn
follow him into tho homo rule camp.
An extraordinary bicycle ride has
just been tuken by Goorgo P. Mills of
Liverpool. .Ho rode from Land's End
to John O'GroatB in the extraordinary
time of tivo days aud one and a half
hours. Tho distance being itOO miles,
the rider covered, in round numbers,
180 miles daily for five consecutive
dnys. Tho want of sleep told on him
terribly and he was subjected toa
suvure physical strain. Last year he
rode 250 miles in one day, Mr. Mills
is still under twenty yoars of ago.
He is thu son of a Liverpool merchant.
Mr. T. C. llcrchard, public sohool
teaoher Norland, writes: "During the
1881 I was much troubled with Bilious*
ness and part of the time was unable to
attend to tlie duties of my profcsiion.
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and llyspeptio Cure was recommended
to mo, uud I have much pleasure in stating that I was entirely cared by using
one bottle. I have not hud an attack of
my old complaint since, and have gained
fifteen pounds in weight."
