Indians Albert Welch and David
Brown, of Nans River, and Geo.
Kelly, of Fort Simpson, who acted
as interpreter for his brothern of the
Naas river deputation, accompanied
by the Rov. J. 8, Starr and Rev. Mr.
Tait, Indian missionary on the
Lower Fraser, Messrs. N. Shakespeare, M. P., David Spencer and
Shoriff McMiilian, met Mr. Van-
koughnet, of the Indian Department
Ottawa, to lay before that gentlemen certain matters relating to Indian affairs in this province. Rev.
Mr. Tait said they had come to
make certain statements and obtain
information regarding the subjects
in which they were largely interest
ed. He had heard that it was the
intention to establish a couple of
schools iii this province. He hoped
one would be located on the Lower
Fraser, as the Indian population
thore was larger than in sny other
part of the province. Mr. Van-
koughnet replied by stating that a
school would be established on the
island and one on the mainland;
but where he could not yet state, as
he had not made up his report to
his minister. The point, howover,
would shortly be determined upon.
Sheriff McMillan asked if Roman
Catholic priests were appointed as
instructors how would Protestants
resist the arrangement. Mr. Van-
koughnet said care would be taken
that only laymen would be appointed to such positions as the last
speaker referred to. The religious instruction would be left to the parents
or to their ministers, to be attended to
outside the school curriculeum. The
plan now in vogue in the Ontario
public schools would possibly suit
the case They would be supported
by grants voted by parliaments Rev.
Mr. Tait asked if it was tho intention to establish homes or places of
refuge for Indian women, especially
for girls. Homes already existed at
Fort Simpson, on the Naas River
and one was about to be erected at
Chilliwhack; these were supported
by the missionary society of their
church. Would government supplement their funds. Mr. Vankoughnet
said this was a matter of government
policy. Rev. Mr. Starr said matters
were rapidly changing in this province now. Indians come south
from the north to pick hops and en
gage in the fisheries on the Fraser
and elsewhere. Unfortunately forthe
morals of the Indians they could not
withstand the temptations of civilization, and the result was that in
a short time they went headlong to
destruction. In Washington Territory there was a law preventing a
white man marrying an Indian. In
this province there was no such law.
It was a fact well-known to everyone that many white men, highly
respectable too, were living with
Indian women and raising families
by them, He regretted to be compelled to state that many of the
officials in this province were living
with Indian women. It was a fearful state to bo in, and the key should
be upplied to open the door for a
purer and a better state of all'airs,
that at once. Mr. Vankoughnet
appeared surprised at this statement.
The interview was adjourned to
meet again at the Indian office,
when Dr. Powell would be present.
On reassembling the gentlemen who
accompanied the Indians were informed that it was not considered
expedient for the Indians to make
tlieir statements jn the presence of
any but the officials. Rev. Mr.
Tait protested against the exclusion
of the members of the deputation,
but the officials declined to recede
from their determination, and the
Indians only were permitted to
state their case,—limes.
■•w la be a XabeaJjr.
It is easy to be nobody, and the
Watchman tells how to do it. Go
to the drinking saloon to spend your
timo. You need not drink much
now, just a little beer or some other
drink. In the meantime play dominoes, checkers, or something else to
kill time so that you will be sure
not lo read any useful books. If
you rend anything, let it bo the
dime novel of the day. Thus go on,
keeping your stomach full and your
head empty, aud yourself playing
timc-killihg games, and in a few
years you will be a first-clas nobody
unless you should turn out to be
n drunkard or a professsional gambler, either of which is worse than a
nobody. Thero are any number of
young men hanging about saloons
just ready to graduate and be nobodies.

WUal Ho Did Say.
Wc hopo our readers will excuse
us for referring again to the utterances of the provincial secretary
respecting the Westminster Southern Railway; but the matter has
occasioned so much remark, and
the misrepresentations of the Ottawa pieu have been made use of for
such base purposes by a few unscrupulous papers in this province, that
we deem it proper'to make public
the latest facts connected with tlio
affair. When the report of the provincial secretary's interview at Ottawa reached this province wo expressed the opinion that it wasa
misrepresentation on the part of the
reporter. We know that the provincial secretary had always been
favorable to the construction of this
railway, and that he regarded it as
of great importance to the constituency he represents. Moreover, as a
matter of fact he has been doing his
best in Ottawa to promote the interests of this very road, and both
he and Mr. Chisholm, who was in
Ottawa at the same time, haye expressed the opinion that the federal
authorities will not likely exercise
the veto power with respect to this
rood, which so obviously conflicts
with neither the 0. P. lt. nor any
other existing interest. The paragraph which appeared in the Ottawa Citizen of the 10th inst. was
suoh a gross misrepresentation of
the provincial secretary's views that,
on his return to Ottawa, he addressed a note to the editor pointing out the misleading nature of it
This note the editor did not publish.
As a matter of fact the provincial
secretary left Ottawa on the 7th
inst. and did not return until the
lllh, so that the item in the Citizen,
purporting to be a report of an interview, must have been made up
from other sources because it was
published three days after the provincial seoretary left the city. In
the Ottawa Free Press of the 20th
a letter from the provincial secretary
appeared from 'vh'ch we extract the
following: "I notice a paragraph in
this evening's issue of your paper
wherein I am made to say that the
people of Westminster district 'are
not interested in the disallowance of
provincial railway charters.' Permit me to say, through your columns, that I never made such a
statement, or anything approximating to it." On the 22nd inst. the
Free Press published the resolution
of the Westminster council in respect to the reported utterances of
the provincial secretary respecting
the railway. Immediately after
thia was the following: "On being
questioned in reference to the matter, Mr. Robson, -who is still in
Ottawa, said: 'I never used the
language attributed to me, The
CUizm reported me as saying something of the kind, and theq,>very
unfairly, as I think, refused to publish a letter which I sent contradicting the report. It is quite impossible that I could ever have
stated anything of the kind because
I know the people of Westminster
are anxious for railway connection
with the boundary and I am in
hopes that they may be allowed to
build their road without interference.
In answer to several questions as to
the feeling in our provinoe on the
disallowance question, I hnve said
that the question has not practically
come home to us yet; and it is
hoped that it may-not. The only
contemplated railway in our province to which it could well apply is
the Southern Railway, connecting
Westminster with the American
railway system; but it would so
obviously be a valuable feeder of the
0. P. R, that it is difficult to believe it would be opposed by the
federal government in the interest
of that company." Now, it seems
to us these statements are sufficiently explicit and ought to satisfy
every one that the statements credited to the provincial secretary
upon which the protests of the city
council and the local members wore
baaed, were clearly a misrepresentation and without foundation. The
Citizen is one of those papers that
defends disallowance as a principle,
and wants to see it enforced under
all circumstances. For this reason
it published a misleading statement
with respect to the attitude of the
people of Westminster district towards the question, and then refused to publish the correction sent
by the provincial secretary! While
the press of British Columbia generally has taken a fair view of the
facte, the Guardian and the Times
have to far to,_,o'. in themselves as,
in effect, to dec'are tbat the statement at fint attributed to the provincial secretary was Undoubtedly
made by him, and that thoy will
accept no explanation or denial.
We feel certain {that there arc very
few ot the people who will not say
that the attitude of these papers is
a disgrace to journalism.

You can't mako a man Briber by net
of parliament," So they said. I
thought it ovor. It didn't seem to mo
a self-evident proposition.
" Why not ?" said I. Then came a
crusher.
" You might as well try to euro tho
toothache by act of parliament."
This made me reflect. I had been
troubled with the toothache; worried
by it, maddened by it, kept off work,
my meals, my happinoss by it. My
health was failing in consequence. My
temper was gone. My mind was going.
I was invited to toy various remedies.
" Stop it," said some.
"But how!"   I inquired.
" Fill'the tooth with gold," they ox-
plained. The tooth was thus primed,
but the toothache went on.
" Clear it out," said others.
"How—how)'' was my agonized
exclamation.
" Cleanse tho blessed thing nut,"
they told me. I did. I got it inspected, illuminated, syringed, fumigated, made beautiful with camphor-
ated chalk, bath brick, lato powder
and floraline.   No good.
" Give it a rest on Sundays," said a
clerical friend. I tried this. Even
on Sundays there were some bona' lido
twinges; on Mondays it was as bad na
ever.   What was I to do ?"
" Be extra careful what you let into it," advised a civic functionary.
Nothing oould oxoeod my care.
Three magislrates certified the pood,
harmless, excellent character uf all I
put into my tooth. I folt safe. Not
for long. I soon felt sold. Tho results were disappointing, distressing,
exoruciating. Somehow tho coniliod
application irrst its virtue tho moment
it got inside.
"Hold a drink of water in your
mouth and sit on tho fire until it
boils," urged n knowing one. I began
to think this waB tho only remedy.
At last I took counsel of a fanatic.
"Try the parliamentary euro," said
he.
"What's that)" said 1.
"Have tho tooth out; a short net
will do it."
This seemed drastic. It would lonve
a gap in my social system. I should
miss an old friend. Tho tooth had a
vested interest.   1 took courage.
"Let the operation cost what it may,
it must come," 1 criod, and so I summoned tho dentist.
"I am ready for the parliamentary
cure," said I.
Il took n strung pull. It ivaa done.
The tooth was gone. So wiib tho
toothache.   1. was happy.
Once moro I reflected. Extraction
cures toothache. I had never realized
this before. No tooth no toothache.
This is strange but truo. And yet
you can't mako n man sober by act of
parliament.
Let us Bee, no tooth, no toothache.
Granted. No drink tralHc, uo drink.
Eh, whnt! Is that a fact! No drink
traffic, no drink. I never thought of
that No drink, no drunkenness. A
mule with no hind legs doesn't kick.
He is quiet. If n man can get nothing to drink, ho doesn't drink. Ho is
sober. An act of jiarliament can
mako him bo. By whitewashing the
public house? Not quite. Sanctifying it on Sunday iu big places only?
What, then, do you want parliament
to enact? Prohibition!—ifrisli Temperance League Joumid.
A Temperance Sermon.
In accordance with tho recommendation of the General Assembly of llio
Presbyterian Church at its last session to the effect that ministers of thnt
demonination throughout the Dominion should devote n sermon occasionally
to the question of temperanco, Rev,
Thos. Scouler, ot St. Andrew's, iu
this city, delivered a sound and uble
discourse on this important subject
lost Sunday eveiiiug. He snid, in effect, that although the scriptures did
not teach ejpli-riily, perhaps, total
abstinence from all intoxicating liquors,
they did urge in express words to "abstain from every appearance of evil,"
and "nppenranceB of ovil" were certainly
not wanting in connection with the
liquor traffic. The speaker showed it
to bo the imiuifeBt duty of Christians
to be constant in their endeavors to
suppress this giant curse, and counselled the young to remain upon tho
only safe aide and bewaro of indulging
in tlie tirst step, while those who had
permitted themselves to fall into the
toils of tho drinking habit were urged
to turn right around and assured of
the Divine assistance in overcoming
the fatal tomptntition.
A Canal Fall of Liquor.
In the United States the auiuunt of
intoxicating liquors used iu a year
wonld nil a canal four feet deep, fourteen feet wide and one hundred and
twenty miles in length. If all tho
liquor saloons of New York city were
placed in opposite rows they would
make a street like Broadway eleven
miles in length. The drunkards of
America,in ranks of five abreast, would
form a procession one hundred milea
ill length. That great army, 600,000
strong, goes on to swift and sure destruction.

LETTER FROM ITALY,
Milan, Sept. 16th 1887.
A sojourn In Italy of some five weeks
enables the comparison of the most
striking features of somo of tho Italian
institution^ with those of America. It
is primps well to indulge in these
comparisons before the habits of the
country are incorporated into tho being
of llio temporary resident. To the
American wno has fresh in his mind
orrr brick, stone and wooden structures,
the first glimpse ol Italian cities is rrjrl
lo leave a sort of frmtastic Impression.
This is broiijiht about not only by the
l.'1'nt'i.lly, arlisfiir appearanco of tilings
l.nt notably by. ll|e.fnei that the houses,
with tew exceptions iu the larger and
modern cities, nri'iruneiit-coveri'd stone.
With ua where the art of coment-mak-
in;! is rather in its infancy, such houses
that after a few yenrs exposure lo whirl
anil weather, do not present a most disreputable appeiiiitnire are seldom found.
These Italian structures have stood for
centuries to present an exterior without
crack or blemish. The painting: of these
houses also appoara novel to tho American. The ordinary Italian house has
no actual Bills, cornices and corridoro
frames on the exterior but these are all
frainted sn the houses. The Interven-
ng spaces on the buildings again, arc
frainted in colors entirely different from
lie ordinary American house colors,
usually light Krcrru; blue or red. All
these features combine to give the
buildings an unsubstantial appearance.
Of course tbe traditional solid masonry
of the Italians nmrears in *vast number
of bulldihgssitcb lis the 'Galletla Vittoris
Kmtuanuele' at Milan or the numerous
noble cathedrals throughout tho country.
Most Italian houses are large; tney
seem, to be tenement houses. The explanation, of this ftafure liea in the
scarcity of Italian Soil' in proportion to
the population. Moreover the necessity
of concerted action in case of attack
originally made it necessary that the
inhabitants should cluster together as
closely as possible. Ono notices this
particularly In the fertile plains of
Lombard/ which were always subject
to tbe inroads ol people) from Northern
Europe. The American or English
cottage, with its romantic traditions Is
here truly a "castle in Spain."
Italy is a very poor country. It is
vaatly over-pojmlated, has meagre agricultural naoiiiccs and almost no minerals. Not apouml of coal ll found under
Italian toil and the forest! are gone.
The iilluher and saltpetre mines of
Italy and the deposits of iron ore in
Sardinia are about the only valuable
mineral deposits in Ihe Kingdom. If
It were not for the tourists the Inhabitants could hardly exist. Hence it is
that every institution seems calculated
to get as much money as possible from
the stranger. In point of practical sense
the Italians are far behind the Americans. Railroad fans are about as high
as in America, and the traveler mustln
addition pay a heavy price for the
transportation of his luggage. Every
porter, chambermaid ana waiter, expects a fee, and is almost entirely
dependent upon these fees for subsistence. One never gets through paying
out spare change, The system is gradually developing, a stereotype look
'hopeful of a Trinkgeld' on Hie lower
Italian physiognomy. The custom at
Ihe hotels of charging for every item
separately including such trifles ns
candles and writing paper makes traveling in Italy more expensive Hum in
America, Even the purchase of a cup
of coffee or a glass of beer involves the
giving of a 'Trintyeld.' Won lo the unhappy individual who does not pay his
proper stipend. He might as Well proceed to get buried or envy the criminal
on the scaffold.
It is a custom'among Italian mer-
fi*i"*'to_L*_-:5'*Jori1'eir*«^t^
they expect to get. Every purchaser
hero is expected to "dicker11 and although aome establishmets advertise
prruifiui fixed prices, a store wonld be
rare to find where for tbe purpose ot
making a sale, th* proprietor would not
"knock off" 60 per cent.
The Italians themselves are very polite, warm-hearted and patriotic. The
latter iievery:«fej«eViaenced by statues of their heron. The memory of
Victor Emanuel, Garibaldi and Man-
roiii is preserved by numerous statues,
and in the names of Streets and public
nMM.of :nearly every Italian city. The
Kin)? of Italy and hia wife aro exceedingly popular, Humbert I. combines
great natural ability and a noble heart
with the most self sacrificing seal on behalf of his people. He lives a Very
regular and simple life. Some time
tjpjlm Mm Ainbnmdor made an appointment Mb hijt^to inspect the
work of rectifying the Tiber, whlcL
is being conductedbyaSwiss syndicate.
They were to meet at 6 o'clock in the
morning; and notwithstanding this
early hour the King wat promptly on
hand. At a fire tut long ago in Rome,
be wm one of the first on the Kene, although it occurred ihortly after midnight j through his personal supervision
he encouraged tho firemen to their efforts. The Queen of Italy ia considered
the most beautiful queen living. She
is a favorite with every one, nothing
but good Is heard of her, although Italians aro not at all averso to criticise
even meiAbersof their royal house.
During the past month, immediately
after the death of Minister Depretics,
the HlMsrnt a consolatory teleiiram to
the Cowop tt the deceased atateiman,
the substance of which has not been
made public. Depretics died in rathei
moderate.circumstances and it la whispered among men who know whereof
they ipeak, that tho telegram contained a noble tribute to the merlta ol
thodoceaacd Minister in the form of a
handsome endowment to his widow.
In some such way the Kiiur Is constant.
ly doing good without parading his generosity beforo tho public.      -
The success of the .recant French
Mobilisation haa caused aome comment
here. The.well known antipathy of
the Italians to the French lias caused
rumors of war between France and
J-tnljf. Tbejllllahcso have concluded

by its action on tho blond, relieves this
condition, and restores Uio joints to good

Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, ninny most remarkable cures, in
caaes which bofiled tho efforts of the
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I oould give tlie names of
many individuals who have been cured
by taking this medicine. In my case it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after boing troubled with it for years. In
tikis, and ull othor diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief i'.s Ayer's SarsapariUa.—B. H.

I was, during many months, a sufferer

Intimidating witnesses.
Supt. Roycroft, of tho Provincial
Police, caused the arrest, a few days
ago, of nn Indian woman named Pont-
laas, a relative nf Quamlet, tlie Indian
awaiting trial at tbe coming assizes on
the charge of murdering Dring and
Miller. It seems that she has been
threatening witnesses with death if they
did not change their evidence in tho
higher oourt, and the superintendent,
gotting wind of it, sont ordors to tho
Fraser River, whero the woman was
living, to have her arrested. She was
before tho provincial court yesterday,
but the case was remanded for one
week in order that witnesses can be
secured to prove her guilt.—Colonist,
The Catch Completed.
Mr. Max Mowat, of tho tisheries
department, who has returned from
Harrison River, brought with him
1,450,000 salmon eggs, which completes the catch for this year. In all
10,000,000 eggs havo been secured and
safely deposited in the hatcher}-, nnd
aro now in process of hatching. The
work this year has been much easier
than lost season, the weather lias been
more favorable for operations, nud tbe
iish much more plentiful than usual.
Mr. Mowat states that ho could have
laid in several million more eggs had
there been room for them in the hatchery, and when the wholo number was
completed ho had to turn many fish
out of the trap. It is expected tho
hatchery will be enlarged beforo noxt
season or another hatchery erected,
probably at Harrison River. If this
is done the number of eggs noxt season will run up to 15,000,000.

The Baptist Convention.
Editoii Coiombian.— My attention
has been drawn to an item which appeared in your columns a few days ago
to the effect that tho Baptistconvention
in session in Toronto had votod 81000
to sustain Rov. J. B. Kennedy in Vancouver, and 8200 to the Baptist cause
io tlris city. Permit a word of correction ns this statement has already
produced a false impression. Tho faot
is the convention referred to has no
power to vote any money either to
Vancouver or to Westminster, and did
not vote any. The Dominion board of
home missions in rendering its report
to the convention stated that during
the year it had voted ?200 to aid the
building fund of the Westminster
church, and assisted the church at
Vancouver so us to make tho pastor's
salary $1000. I am not sure what the
exact sum is which the board 1ms do-
voted to Vancouver, but I think it is
perhaps about hnlf the stipulated
salary; the church supplying the other
half nr thorcby,   Very truly yours,

Chicago, Oot. 21.—The Times' Newport, It. I., special uys: The vessels
of the 'North Atlantic squadron are
anchored here, and each day there are
practical and theoretical exercises.
To-day it was decided for practice to
land a 5-inch Dahlgron gun with car-
riago attached on Roso Island, and
there practico with aholls. The experiment was to show what could be dono
in that line with tho usual appliances
found on a man-of-wnr. In order to
land the eun and carriage at the same
time two heavy sailing launches were
utilized and wero taken alongside the
flagship Richmond. Both launches
were connected with heavy spar, and
equally heavy plankinc, and thus a
4-foot platform was improvised. The
gun and carriage wero hoisted clear of
the ship's aide and slowly descended to
the platform, where they were securely fastened, The order to start wos
no sooner given than tho timbers
snapped and the gun and carriage
gracefully glided into tho water. The
weight of the gun as it went overboard
capsized one of the launches, and
caused the other to fill with water.
The water was black with men struggling to free themselves from the debris. Threo wore badly bruised. Tonight the valuable gun and carriage
rest on tho bottom, and the work of
bringing them to the surfaco will involve time and money. It is considered a miracle that no lives woro lost.
Admiral Luce witnessed tho accident
and is deeply chainined.
