Down lo Ihe Coal.
On Monday the workmen engaged
in sinking the shaft (or the East
Wellington colliery reached the coal
at a depth of about 240 feet. As
this shaft goes on the thiok scam of
coal whioh the company are working
connection can at once be made and
the output of coal materially increased. The sinking of this shaft
will enable Mr. W. S. Chandler,
Bupeiintendent, to put in as many
men as he desires. Having only one
shaft they have been restricted by
the coal mines act to a very limited
number of men. We understand it
is the intention of Mr. Chandler, the
proprietor, to work this colliery on
a much more extensive scale now
that the seam has turned out to be
an excellent one. Mr. Chandler
and the community are to be congratulated on the success that has
crowned his perseverence and enterprise.—Nanaimo Free Press,

Editor Columbian:—For the information of the electors of Richmond, will you kindly insert the
following particulars respecting
roads on Lulu Island, so that with
the map before them they may be
enabled to form a good idea of the
location of the roads that are pro
posed to be constructed in case the
loan by-law published in the Comjm
max should carry. Tho following
roads extend north und south across
the island, viz,* Nos. I, 2,3, i, 5,6,
7 and 8. Kb. 1 begins on the North
Arm, hear the gulf, between sections 2 and 3, B4 %ftjrsr.*t j_m
others at intervals Bf oto rilile e'ach
to the eastward. No. 9 begins at
-the 3. W. corner of section 33 B
4K., B. 7W., thence eastward tothe
South Arm of the Fraser. A road
is also gazetted from the town hall
between sections 28 and 33, B. 5N.,
B. 6W., continuing eastward to the
North Arm. By referring to the
map and by-law with these particulars, I trust the electors will not be
at a loss to know where the most of
the money will be spent in case the
loan by-law, to be submitted to them
on the 26th inst., should meet with
their approvaLr-Youp,,^,,,, ^
Richmond, March 5,1888,
Eagland aad Veanaela.
London, Maroh 6.—Repeated protests of the Venezuela government
against the steady encroachments on
its frontier by the Queen's subjects
from British Ouinea, although
couched in moat respectful, not to
say humble terms, appear to have
had only the effect of irritating
those English journals and people
who can be induced to notice the
subject at all, For years there has
been constant nibbling at the Venezuela border, and portion after portion of the territory has been annexed in the most matter of course
manner. There is even a feeling
understood, at least if not expressed,
that very likely the inhabitants of
the territory absorbed are thankful
to be takon under the shield of
British protection, thereby exchanging their status as subjects of a weak
and semi-barbarous power for the
inestimable privilege of British citizenship, and acquiring the protection of the most just, powerful, and
civilized nation of modern times. If
the story of the richness of gold
fields in the debateable lands should
prove to be correct, they can certainly be better developed by British enterprise and capital than by
the primitive methods of the Venezuelans. As for the right of the
matter, it is known to everyone
that defining lines have always been
uncertainly traced, and in matters
of doubt the English government
must protect its interests. The foregoing is the complacent view entertained here, and the proposition of
arbitrament is considered as derogatory to the dignity of a nation so assured of the justice of its position.
Press comments on the subject indicate that not only would arbitration
in the present case be objectionable
on principle, but any suggestion
looking to the selection of the
United States us an adjudicating
power would be flatly rejected,
cither justly or unjustly. It is considered that a nation which has promulgated the Monroe doctrine could
not view the delicate point of differ-
enrre impartially, and a mixed commission would present almost equally insuperable difficulties. The future polioy of England toward
Venezuela may be imagined from
lurr past course. The latter country
dare not provoke hostilities, " and
what," asks the press, " ceuld the
United States do in her behalf, even
if sho were willing,^) riddle in any
quarrel so remote from her soill"
England, of course, would not break
off her friendly relations with the
great republic for any slight cause;
but a nation that has no navy must
not make itself ridiculous by hollow
bluster, and what retaliatory meas
ures could the United States devise
incase her protests were unheeded]

LIST NIGHT'S DISPATCHES.
PAMJ1MENT DOBS NOT ADJOUKN.
London, March 9.—The failure of
parliament to adjourn-as a matter of
respect to the memory of the Emperor
William, was due solely to the importance of the statement of Mr. Oosohen,
presenting the governments scheme
for converting consols. The moment
the outline of the plan became known
in financial circles, consols advanced a
fraction. But the scheme makes their
scheme so gradual that its disturbance
o( the financial equilibrium is rendered
almost impossible. All of the bourses
were strong to-day. The effect of the
Kaiser's death upon financial centres
was discounted by the false reports of
yesterday, and the prompt proclamation of the Grown Prinoe as Emperor contributed to the restoration of
confidence everywhere,
THB CONVERSION  OF CONSOLS.
London, March 9.—In the house of
commons this evening Mr. Ooschen,
the chancellor of the exchequer, in
submitting his scheme for the con-
conversion of consols, asserted that
his proposal wonld greatly lighten the
burdens of the country. The time
had arrived for a bold schema of conversion. He proposed that parliament
should retain the power to pay off
dissentients at such periods as parlia-
mentltsetf might determine. He would
take a 2J percentage as the indication
of the credit ofthe country, which the
government was bound to utilize to
secure taxpayers some advantage. A
system of the gradual reduction of the
interest and with each a guarantee for
a certain number of yean, would in
his judgment ba most sueoessful. He
cited the kinds of stock w>w «iistin*;,
of which he stated £323,000,000 ware
consols, £116,000,000 new threes, and
£69,000,000 reduced threes. The consols snd reduced threes require ten
rears to pay off. The new threes could
be paid off withotit notice. He proposed that there be one large stock of
unifarm denomination snd explained
hie views regarding the paying of annuities and the rates of interest To
the holders of consols and reduced
threes, he offered £105 for every £100
of stock, to forego their right of the
10 years' notice, provided they assented to the offer before April 12th.
Otherwise conversion would be made
at par. Holders of consols would by
this scheme be relieved from the constant fear of being paid off. If the
scheme were accepted it would result
in an immense saving to the country.
The proposal was carried.

The Vote In nation.
Particulars of the .Soott act repeal
vote which took place in Halton,
Ont., on tho 1st inst. are now coming to hand, but do not contain any
very satisfactory explanation of the
unexpected result Halton was one
of the first counties to adopt the
Scott not. It was carried: in 1881
by a majority of 81. In ' 1884 an
attempt was made to repeal it, but
the majority in its favor wns increased to 180. Although tho operations, of the act during the six
years of ita enforcement were not
entirely satisfactory, there can be
little doubt that its results were
beneficial. Crime in the county
decreased perceptibly, and several
times the assize court judges were
presented with white gloves in recognition of the fact that there were
no criminal cases on the docket. In
the four years preceding the enforcement of the act the municipal appropriations for relief of the poor
were $2,100; but in the four yiiers
under the act they amounted to only
$500. It is stated that one of the
causes of the defeat of the act was a
scheme gotten up by its opponents
by means of which n large number
of temperanco votes were lost An
anti-Scott act man would propose to
pair with ri Scott act man on the
plea that it would be foolish for both
of them to go. to the polls and vote
against eaeh other. Having made
an agreement to this effect the anti-
Scott act man would proceed to
make a similar arrangement with a
number of othor temperance votors;
and it is actually stated that in some
case* ono anti had paired with a
dozen votors on the opposite side.
How far this scheme affected the result will probably never be known,
or whether the act would have been
sustained on a straight, honest vote,
we suppose no one can tell. The
defeat in Halton is the first defeat
of the Scott act in any county whero
it has been carried, lt is now enforced, we believe, in over 60 counties; but notice nf repeal has been
given in several of them, and the
question will have to be fought over
again. The result in Halton may
have considerable influence upon the
contests that are approaching.
Navigating the Fraser.
It is with muoh satisfaction that
we call attention to the report in
another column of the gentlemen
who yesterday mode soundings in
the river from this oity to the Straits
tf Georgia. For various reasons it
has hitherto been found very difficult to get reliable information re-
tpeoting the river and the channel
over the sandheads. While those in
this city who have had opportunities of informing themselves were
Suite certain that the navigation of
ae Fraser presented no serious obstacles, there were many in whoso
minds the conviction remained that
only vessels of light draught could
coins up as far as this oity. Such
an opinion must give way before the
evidence presented by the report of
practical men. There is no longer
any doubt that the channel over tho
tandheadahas materially improved
since the commencement of tho
work of cribbing and stopping up
the old channel. This fact in itself
it of the greatest importance, because
it shows that the plan adopted by
the Dominion government is accomplishing the very result intended.
Most of our readers know that some
yean ago a new channel was found
acrou the sandheads, going almost
straight out from Garry Point This
channel has come to be used entirely,
and the Dominion government concluded that if the old channel was
olosed up, the force of the current
would be increased in the new channel to as to deepen it and keep it in
good shape. This theory having
been proved correct by actual experience, it only remains for the
federal authorities to hasten forward
the work until it is completed. Wo
have several times urged the necessity of making an appropriation
large enough to complete the work
this season, and we hope very sincerely that the government will
tee its way clearly to do this at
once. Fraser River ia the most important river in British Columbia,
and the interests depending on its
being made and kept available for
all classes of shipping are very large.
At preaent there is no difficulty in
bringing np vessels drawing 20 feet,
but the entrance ought to be made
deep enough for any vessel that
floats, and it may be done at a very
trifling cost The lower Fraser
runt through the finest and most
prosperous agricultural district of
Britith Columbia, «nd tho region
is remarkably rich in resources. It
is here that the great Iish canneries
ore situated, and ita resources in
magnifioent timber are practically
inexhaustible. The opening of tbe
river to tlie world's shipping would
give an impetus to these industries
the oaMeqnences of which it is im
pottiM-i. to estimate.

Awake! my brothers and sisters,
Awake iu your glorious might)
Our brothers and sisters are falling,
They are dying to-night.
By the evils of the saloon they arc
falling,
By the tempter that lies at our door;
By the men that aro elected to office,
By the money thot's robbed from the
poor.
By night and by day they are falling,
Their lives arc fast ebbing away;
How can we be idle, kind friends,
And not givo them help in somo way.
Let temperance and churchbeunited,
And work with a will for the cause;
And the ovils of the saloon will be
righted.
By the passing of good temperanco
laws.
It's a work for all Christian soldiers,
It's a work by God's children to be
done;
It's a work for the most holy and
righteous,
It's a work that we must never shun.
If our country was threatened with
danger,
With the enemy appearing in sight,
What would bo the use of resistance
Unlets the church and  temperanco
unite ?
ttai Sraiecicd Warning.
A drinking man one night dreamed
that, returning from one of his drunken revels, and getting as far as the
head of his own stairs, he fell from tho
top to tbo bottom and broke his neck,
but opened his eyes in hell. The
whole place appeared to him as it were
one great tap-room, filled with persons
of every nation, and kindred, and
tongue, and peoplo, all seemingly en-
ioyingthemselves,andeavhroaringmore
ustily -than anuthor over their cups,
which were abundantly well supplied
by the governor, to whom he turned
and said, "What abominable lies they
tell us in the other world! they would
make us believe that hell is a place of
endless lire and brimstone, where sinners are to be kept burning to all eternity; but hero all is mirth and jolly.
I think I should like this place mighty
well." All of a sudden every'eye fixed
upon him with a horrid glare, as if to
give him the lie, and rising from their
seats each tore.opon a cloak, which beforo hid them from his view, and presented a solid body of living lire from
tho crown of the head to the sole of
the foot.
On seeing this dreadful sight, his
very soul seemed to die within him,
and he besought tho governor with crying and tears to let him "oseapo for
bis life." "2*0,110," said the governor, '■'there's no discharge from this
place; you tree thousands coming in
but nono goiuif out." "Ohv, but,"
said the young man, "if 1 had but
known what a place of horror this was,
I should have lived a different life, and
nevor havo come to this place of torment. I implore you to let me out on
any condition." "Well" said tho governor, "I will let you go on ono condition, and that is, that you return
this day twelvemonth." "I will,"
said he, flying from the pit of destruction, which effort awoke him from his
awful dream.
He flow at once to his long-neglected minister, who advisod and prayed
with him, and told them that it was
the Lord's mercy that he was now out
of hell, and if he did not hear this
dreadful warning, repent, and begin a
new course of life, God wonld cortnin-
ly cut short his lifo. He took the
warning, became reformed and Boon
had tho delight of seeing his family
again comfortable and happy from his
industry.
Tho reformation continued for six
months, when he was mot by some of
his old companions, who by joors and
temptations led him astray and in a
very short time he became tenfold
more a child of hell than ever. But
returning ono night from tho whisky-
she]) he stumblod from Iho head of the
stairs lo the foot, broko Iris neck, and
was taken up a corpse. The noxt
morning notice was sent to the minister, and the young man's striking
dream flashed across his mind. Ho
went lo his diary, and there saw that
it was that day twolvo months the un-
fortunato muu had been to him unfolding the awful warning of the wrath
to come.
There has been false temperance in
the put; even the Mohammedans are
dishonest and false temperance men.
But every plank in n temperance platform not in itself theologically sound
must nocossarily be permeated with dry
rot and a dangerous thing to trust one's
future to. Again, supernatural motives are of avail in addition of the
.natural motives excited by the sight
of broken-hearted mothers and sisters,
by the sin against God that the degra-
tion of his own image committed by
the drunkard, for whom there is no
heaven, and who is sinking himself Into tho hell whioh, wo are taught, is
prepared for him. So God blesses our
movement snd' helps the sinner' to
overcome. The moans whioh we invoke for the promotion or our cause
nro the confessional and tho communion of the members of onr societies.
Tho Driest watches over his flock, and
all the sanctifying influences of our religion aro brought to bear to protect
man from/becoming r enslaved to his
passions,
Tho destruction of proporty by tlio
crime or carelessness of. drinking or
drunken men has amounted to fully
»0,000,000 for the ten years.
A Creaking Hinge
Is dry and turns hard, until oil is applied,
after which it moras easily.. When the
joints, or hinges, of the body aw stiffened
and inflamc-il by Rheumatism, thoy cun-
not be moved without tuti'ilng tho most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Saraaparilla,
by its action on tho blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
cases which baffled the efforts of the
most experienced physicians. Were it
necessary, I could give the names of
many individuals who have been cured
by talcing this medicino. In mycaao it
has worked wonders, relieving me of
Rheumatism,
after boing troubled with it for years. In
this, and all other diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remody with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayer'a SarsapariUa.—R. H.
Lawrence, H. 17., Baltimore, Md.
Ayer'a SarsapariUa cured me of Gout
and Khemuatirini, when nothing else
would. It has eradicated every trace of
disease from my system.—R. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Belmont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. The disease
afflicted me griovously, in Bpite of aU tbo
remedies I could (1 nd, until I commenced
using Ayer's SarsapariUa. I took several bottles of this preparation, and was
speedily restored to health. —J. Fream,

Your Children
Aio constantly eiposed to dangw faom
Colds, Whooping Cough, Cronp, and
diseases peculiar to the throat and
lungs, For such ailments, Ayer*.
Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered, affords spoedy relief and oure.
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children were
afflicted, we used, during the past win.
ter, with much satis&otion, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all tho medicines whioh hare
come to our knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst, Preceptress, Home {or Little
Wanderers, Doncaster, Md.
My ohildren have heen peculiarly «*.
Jeot to attacks of Croup, and I tailed to
Snd any effective remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Pectoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty of breathing and invariably
cures tho complaint,—David O. Starks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. 7.
I havo used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
in my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable ln
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to the lungs, and quickly subdues anv tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, Plainvlllo, Mloh.
I find no medicine so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Couch, as Ayer'a
Cherry Pectoral. It saved the life of my
littlo boy, only six months old, carrying
him safely through the worst case ol
Whooping Cough-1 ever saw.—Jane

Struck In Ihe Jaw.
This morning while some men in tho
l°gS'nB camp across the river were
blowing up a large stump,a Chinaman,
who was deeply interested iu the exciting spectacle and stood a little closer
than wus safe, wns struck in the jaw
by a flying log. The blow was a very
severe one and, besides dislocating tho
jaw, inflicted a numbor of very nasty
cuts and bruises on the head and faco.
Tho only wonder is that the man was
not killed outright. The Chinaman
was brought over to this city und
placed in St. Mary's hospital, whero
hia injuries wero attended to by Dr.
Fagan. It was thought at first the
injured man would recover, but he
sunk rapidly and died about 4 o'clock
this afternoon.
Slurring  ladlnns.
Chiefs Altximdro of tlie Riviere Qui
Barre Stouiesj Mitch el of the Riviere
Qui Bane Cr-ees, and Alexis of tho
Lake St Ann Stonies, with three of
their councillors, accompanied by
MessM. S. Cunningham and D. Ma-
loney, the former acting as interpreter,
called upon the Edmonton Bulletin on
Thursday to secure the publication of
a statement regarding their present
condition which thoy desired to make.
They told a woeful story of their sufferings during the present winter. Their
crops of grain last year were a failure,
and following upon that disaster wus
the further calamity of a failure of tho
fish supply. The government had also
cut duwu their rations, in some cases
not giving them anything, and in
others their former supply of a pound
of flour and hnlj a pound of pork per
day had beeu cut down to half a pound
of flour a day mid only occasionally
they got any pork at all. On this the
Indians were slowly starving to death,
aud the bands would bo sadly decimated before spring if the government did
not send them relief quickly. A telegram was at once sent tu Sir John
Macdonald asking for relief, and we
understand it was in response lo thut
telegram that Mr. Hayter Reed, assistant Indian commissioner, passed
through Calgary on his way to the
north last week,—Galgary Tribune.
Mrs. A. Nelson, Brantford, writes: "I
was a sufferer from Chronic Dyspepsia
for eleven years. Always after eating,
an intense burning sanitation in the stomach, at limes very distressing, caused a
dtooping and languid feeling, which
would laat for several hours after eating.
I was recommended by Mr. Popplewell,
Chemist, of our eity, to try Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, and I am thankful to say
that I have not been better for years;
that burning sensation and languid feeling have all gone, and food does not lie
heavy on my stomach. Others of my
family have used it with best results."

Some time ago we mentioned that
tlie Ruyal City Planing Mills Co. had
been in communication with vessel
owners with a view to bringing ships
up to this city to load lumber for
foreign markets. Tho difficulty in the
way of accomplishing this has been
the absence of official knowledge iu
shipping circles respecting tho condition of tho sandheads and the Fraser.
Shipmasters and brokers had really
nothing before them 4ipuii which to
form au intelligent i-pilitou as to the
difficulties that might he oiicoUitlerod,
and under tho circu in stances they
naturally refused to make charters
for this mty. The matter waa brought
before the board of trade a short time
ago by Mr. John Hendry, manager uf
the Royal City Planing Mills; and ths
board, believing that thore was nothing to hinder vessels of ordinary
draught coming to tho city, mado arrangements at onco to have S'lundiugs
taken by practical men. Capt Me-
AHster, who is one of the oldest and
best-known pilots iu this pilot district,
waa Bent for, and assisted by Capt.
Johnson of the str. Belle and Mr.
Alex. Ewen, the well-known cannery
proprietor, a thorough examination of
the river from this city to the mouth,
and across tho sandheads, hus been
made. The examination was completed yesterday afternoon, and Capt. Mc-
Aliater reports that the result is even
mure satisfactory than bad been anticipated. The river itself is all right
for navigation by vest-tola of deep
draught. At Woodward's slough, and
at the first bond below this city, the
channel could be improved by dredging, but the only really shallow place
is at the sandheads. Here very careful and extensive soundings were madr,
and the shallowest water found was
24 feet at medium high tide 1 The
channel was found to be in excellent
condition, and a great deal better than
it has ever beon before. It ii so
straight that a ship's comae need be
changed only once from the gulf to
Garry Bush, and both Capt. Mc-
Alister and Capt. Johnson say without
hesitation that there need be no difficulty at all in bringing up ships of 20
feet draught as the channel is now.
This is extremely gratifying, because
it shows that the crib work put in tho
old channel has sensibly improved navigation, and both the captains are of
opinion that when tho work has been
completed the new channel will be
perfectly safe for ships of any draught.
Their report, we may say, agree entirely with statements made by Capt.
Rogors, of tho str. Dunsmuir, who
has, perhaps, os correct a knowledge of
the sandheads as nny one who navigates these waters. Capt. Rogers
stated to the bonrd of trade several
days' agoihat'Wfe Would havo no hesitation in bringing a ' vessel of 20 feet
draught right up to Westminster. As
soon as the report of the soundings
taken yesterday has been completed it
will be forwarded to Ottawa; and steps
will be taken to have Westminster properly recorded at all shipping centres
aa a seaport, safe and easy of access to
vessels uf moderate draught. And
when tho government works havo
been brought to completion, there will
be nothing to prevent the largest war
vessels and merchantmen enjoying the
facilities of our fresh water harbor.

THE AllMY AND NAVY.
London, March 8.—In the house of
commons this morning the debate was
resumed upon the forming uf the commission to enquire into the condition
of the army and navy. Lord Randolph
Churchill reminded tho house that 178
of iis members were connected with
tho war service. Tho debate, he said,
showed that they wero unanimous in
their confession that, notwithstanding
the expenditures for the war service
had been increased, England's military
forco was iu a deplorable condition.
Their remedy was further expenditures
but hia remedy wus reform in thu expenditures already made. Lord Randolph condemned the system, which
subordinated the trained soldiers to
civilians who were utterly untrained.
This systiim wai just as reasonable as
it would be if the premier should nominate Mr. Labouchere as ArehhUhop
of Canterbury, or make Mr. Olnpl n
Lord Chancellor. The speaker then
compared the efficiency uf tho German
army system with that of Engtuud,
greatly in Germany's favor. Mr. Edward Stunhopo, the secretary of trsr,
hold that the government would accede to any orKjuiiy nf ii definite* mutter, but would resist a royal commission, which waa vague and general in
its character. After some further de*
bate upon the subject, iho motion tu
institute an enquiry was rejected.

They started from Brussels previous
to the receipt of the announcement of
the Emperor' William's death. Queen
Victoria and the Prince nf Wales were.
informed of the death of the emporer
at half psst nine o'eloek this morning.
Special messengers informed the ministers, the-Prince of Wales, the ambassadors, various members of the house
of lords and persons prominent in* political circles. The excitement cf yesterday has been renewed and the German embassy is besieged. In consequence of last evening's conflicting rumors the definite news of tho emperu'n
death was received cautiously. Flug-i
on tho publio buildings were placed at
half mast and notice of the emperors
death was posted on the bulletin boards
of the newspapers. Large crowds
gathered about the newspaper offices
and many were the expressions of sorrow and regret mingled with sympathetic remarks as to how the death of
tho emperor would affect the new em-
po or, Frederick William.
