The West and the East.
A week itgn last Monday three
Indians from tho Northwest were
landed in tho streets of Toronto.
Two of tliese men wore Wood Crees,
nnd the third was a Mountain
Stoney. They belonged to the
region of the late rebellion, and
this was their first visit to civilized
Ontario. A Globe reporter interviewed these stalwart sons of the
forest, and took down through an
interpreter what they had to say
respecting tho wonderland of civilization. Their statements will doubtless be read with great interest.
Ohief Pakitn, on being asked what
impression had been made on his
mind by the journey by railway and
steamer from the far west, said: "It
has opened the eyes of my mind. I
hod some thought before I left home
that this would be the cuse. My
strong desire was that my mind
should be enlightened, and that I
might be made to understand many
things of which I was in darkness.
I have been delighted to witness
the power and wonderful working
of the white man. Of course I
feel that it is Christianity which
has made this possiblo to the white
man, and this is what I wnnt for
myself and my people. I am bewildered with the ride I took to-
night, and I do not know what to
say." The ride teferred to was a
ride through some of the principal
streets of Toronto on a street cur.
Cliief Man - that - takes-to-the-woods
was next interviewed, and said: "I
came to satisfy my own mind. We
heard many conflicting reports, and
some of them were of a character
to mako our people anxious about
the future in respect to the way it
would be alfected by the dealings of
the white men with us. For some
years Vo wanted to be at poace, and
I want to be a loyal and true man.
I wanted to be at peace with every
other num. All the way on the
journey I have seon friendship and
kindness manifested towards me und
my friends as we travelled amongst
the whites. My own teaoher and
missionary thoroughly impressed
upon me when I left to take a note
of everything I saw, and what I
thought would be benetioial to our
people, and I am trying to do so.
But I will fuil on iny part in being
able to carry back all the good I.
have seen. The multitude of people, and the sights I have seen of
this city since I came to it has filled
me more with wonderment than
anything else. I never dreamed of
it, and it burst upon me like a revelation. The light on the streets
seemed like the stars in heaven, and
the people seem beyond all numbor
to my mind." This old chief, as
well as I'ukun, was loyal during the
rebellion, and he did good service for
the volunteers. The other chief,
with a namo too long to be pronounced; suid: "At home the railroad clnic to us, and I thought that
was a wonderful power. But then
when I reached the steamboat I
found another great wonder to my
mind. All thut has been surpassed
since I came to the city this even
iug. I don't know how to describe
the great big building! and multitudes of peoplo and the lights which
are like lightning. I shall be happy if I and my people in even a
humble way will, be able in our future to emulate tliis progress. And
I have been thinking since I beheld
this wonderful city, and beheld its
building aud progress, that we must
stir up and we must bo helped to
improve ourselves and learn to be
such ns I see around me. Since I
started on this trip I have looked
upon the earlier yours of my life
aud the long back years of my people as huving been spent iu darkness. Whatever did fill me with
astonishment in tho past, feels uow
like nothing—simply a childish matter. I want to say, like iny friends,
that I have lieen nll tha while firmly
convinced that this is the result of
Christianity. It il God's gift. Two
things have been thoroughly impressed ou my mind, that is, that
the church and thu school-house
seem to stand side by side, and tlait
good order and the keeping of law
nnd prosperity, these nlso go together." The visit of these threo
chiefs will doubtless produce an
excellent1 effect. The wonderful
stories they will curry back to thoir
people must fill them with a conviction af the folly of attempting
successfully to fight ugninst tho
white man.

Disgraceful Journalism.
The Naraiiino Westward Ho availed itself of tlie occasion of the
opening of the Nitmiimb-Esqtmtalt
Railway to mnke u very course mul
unjustifiable attack upon Mr. Robt
iJunsiuuir, jM. P. 1'., presiilcnt of
the roail. Mr. Dunsniulr wus one
of the cundiiliites for Nanaimo ut
the late provincial election, nnd was
elected by n very large majority
over Dr. O'Brian, editor of the
paper named. At the time of the
election it published an article on
the tinancial transactions of Mr.
Dunsmuir and his company of such
a serious character that legal proceedings were taken against it.
This second attack savors so strongly of political or personal spite, and
seems to us so groundless and inexcusable, that we cannot refrain from
expressing our unqualified condemnation of it. We have no wish to
abridge the legitimate liberties of
the press, especially when exercised
in reference to men holding important public positions. A man's
official lids ought to be open always to the closest inspection and
criticism, but there is a great difler
ence between criticism and libel.
No person can be justified in permitting his public conduct to be influenced by personal interest or
political animosity, and we cannot
" persuade ourselves that this lias not
been done In the Case of the editor
df the Westward Ho.

Unhappy Ireland.
Recent advices from Iroland disclose a most deplorable condition of
aHliirs in that unfortunate country.
For some years Ireland has been the
.scene of many political conflicts, in
whicli sometimes lives were lost and
cruel crimes were committed. But
the latest outrages Imve been committed not under tlie guise of politics but in the name of religion.
Orangemen and Roman Catholics
liave been deliberately shooting and
felling each other in th*1 most bloodthirsty manner, and women and
children have been assisting and
cheering ou these savages whose
hearts ave inspired by the most diabolical purposes. Orangemen lighting for Protestantism and Catholics
lighting for Jtormiriism, und each
apparently tilled with the belief that
every head he cau smash will be an
acceptable ottering to the false deity
his disordered imagination has set
up! The spectacle is snd and disheartening beyond measure. But
although these riots are begun and
carried on in the name of religion
(fanaticism, it should be said), it is
doubtless true that political hatreds
may be fuund mingled with the
emotions which have produced so
fearful a crop. The Omngemen of
irland ave opposed to home rule.
They iteidare tlmt the scheme put
forward by .Mr. Gladstone contains
not, only the germs of separation
but the well-developed plant; and
as all Orange men are sworn to loyalty, they feel bound to resist any
scheme tliat involves tlie dismemberment of the empire. On the
other hand, the home rule movement although led by a Protestant,
is supported almost unanimously by
Roman Catcholics. It does not foi
low that Roman Catholics are not
loyal, nor does it follow tbat Orange
men may not be deceived in their
view of the aim and ultimate effects
of home rule. We believe they
have been so deceived. We are
afraid that tlie dread tbey feel of
Roman Catholic rub; in Ireland
prevents them from forming a fair
and impartial opinion of the measure or its effects, Mr. Parnell has
repeatedly declared that he and his
people will be content with home
rule that gives Ireland the management of its own local it Hairs without dismemberment of the empire,
and Mr. Gladstone lias declared that
his scheme whs brought forward to
secure the loyalty of the Irish and
not to separate them from the nation.
There is uo true Briton who would
consent to separation so long-ins
thero existed a possibility of avoiding it; but there are millions of
Britons as loyal as any Orangeman,
who are willing and anxious to see
the wrongs of Ireland adjusted. It
is a poor cause that has to be supported by disorders and excesses
such as have been tilling Ireland
with blood and passion during the
past f|'w (veeks, At this distanco
• it is not possible to determine upon
which party the largest degree of
responsibility for these disorders
rests, but tt is very likely one is as
bad as the other-;and both are bud
enough.
Thk Tbur Phiwisophy ok Medication
is not to iIohi: fur symptoms but to root
out disease. Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery ami Dyspeptiu Cure, the
(irettt Blood Vurilier, lias proved itself
equal to the task. It is a most searching without being a violent remeily fnr
Constipation, 'Biliousness, and Indigestion, It is as well ndapteil to the needs
and physical temperaments of delicti t«
females as to the more robust sex, ami is
a preventive of disease ns well as a remedy for it.

Manitoba Flouu.— Augurs. Carleton & Harris, the enterprising merchants at Port Hammond, bave just
received the first cur load of flour that
has ever comu over the Canadian Pacific Railway to this province. They
deserve considerable credit for the enterprise that tbey have shown in being
thu first to make a move in the right
direction, Manitoba ought to bo able
to compete with Oregon, and we aro
told that the prices quoted by the
Port Hammond firm aro such as will
enable us all to use thu Canadian flour.

The Branch Road.—Hitherto the
work of laying rails on tho branch
road connecting this city with the
main lino of tho C. P. R. has boen
going on vory slowly, thoro being a
gang of only about 20 men employed.
This morning tho forco was increased
to 00, and work will proceed much
more rapidly. Mr. A. R. Green, C.E.,
the engineer in charge, expects the
track layers to' reach Sapperton on
Saturday. Pile driving in front of the
city is being pushed on. Thu piles
have beun driven as far us the west
end of Ewun's wharf, and timbers are
being placed in position for thu track.
A portion of Mr. Townsend's livery

City Police Court.
Before Capt. I'll tend rlfih and P. McTiernan, J. I'm.
Geo. Clark, a tenant of the Cleveland hotel, was charged with selling
liquor to Mary, an Indian woman, on
Monday night last. Constable Pearce
gave uvidenee of a disturbance which
took place near the above named hotel
which attracted hia attention, and on
going to ascertain the cause he saw defendant give the bottle, of gin, produced, to Mary. On demanding it
from her she gave it to an
Indian, who ran nway with it
and threw it down by tlie river, where
witness picked it up. After the evidence of Constable McBroqm had
been given counsel for the defence
withdrew the plea of not guilty, and
pleaded guilty and asked the mercy
of tlie court on-account of the previous good character of the house.
Tho magistrates, after a short consultation, decided to inflict a fine of 9150,
including 'costs. Mr. McColl for tho
prosecution; Mr. Cochrane for defence. Mary, tho informant in the
above, was fined 94 and costs for being
drunk.
Interprovlnclal Trade.
Mr. Vim Horne in conversation
with a Sun reporter, while in Winnipeg ou his way east said: As to tlie
development of Northwestern trade
with British Coiumbin he believed tho
prospects of development wero good.
Already tho C.P.R. had shipped a
number of train loads of cattlu from
the Kamloops district to the Pacific
coast for consumption. There was a
vory large cattlo district about Kamloops, in fact ono of the must important in the whole country. Being asked if the C.P.R. would be able to
send wheat aud flour into British Columbia from the Territories to compute
with American Hour and wheat which
is sunt up from Oregon to British Columbia, Mr. Van Horne said thuy weru
considering the question. Owing to
the lack of good market American
whuat near the Pacific was very low in
price, and tbey woru able Ut pay thb
duty and send it iu at a low Jigure, but
he thought such steps would be taken
by the company as would rosult in
British Columbia being mainly, if not.
entirely, supplied with wheat and flour
from our prairies. It was the desire
of thu company, and they had all along
beun working tn that end, to open up
as many markets as possible for thu
products of the Northwest.

Senator Mclnnes Interviewed
Senator Mclnnes, who returned to
thit, province over the 0. P. R, a few
days ago, expresses himself as very
much pleased with the journey. The
road bed is in good condition, the
cars are all new aud well and comfor'-
ably furnished, und good time is made,
notwithstanding that there are many
heavy gradients. The senator, however, adheres to the opinion previously
held by him, that the road should
have been brought by way of thu Yellowhead pasH. where the grades would
have been lighter, and by which means
the purposes for which the road was
originally designed would have been
better accomplished, viz., the settlement of the country. Along the line
which haa been adopted, he says, there
is a great doal of valueless land, whioh
would have beun avoided had the San-
ford Fleming routo been adhered to.
The scenery is beautiful. The senator
being asked how long he would remain
hero beforo going east again replied,
"That just depends on how you uso
me. Very probably I will stay hero
until next session. • My home and my
interests are here, no matter what
others may say to the contrary, and I
think with the opportunities I now
have and intend to make, I will be
ablo to do more for the province than
evor I could before and as much as any
other man in it." The senator says
he may be pursuing a course somewhat
different from thc other representatives of thu province, but
he believes the people will yet
find it is a right and proper
ono and in their best interest. He
does not consider the province a debtor to the Dominion from any standpoint, but that the latter has been repaid well and sufficiently for everything she has done for us. To obtain
and maintain our rights he believes we
must at times show our political independence. The senator is of the opinion tliat tho Dominion elections will
not take place this year, though before
tho recent adverse test of the government's popularity there is no doubt
thuy woru preparing for it. Since
matters have turned out as they are hu
thinks thu government will uot risk
themselves again in the field until tho
statutory term is run out.
From Granite Creek. .
Mt. Geo. A. Webster, the wutl
known pioneer miner snd prospector,
who has just returned from Graniie
Creek, furnishes our reporter with a
fow particulars concerning the diggings, The claims which paid last
fall continue to pan out fairly well, but
as has been already sttted, these are
limited in number. The Pu»uo company recently struck a hack channel
that is paying $53 to a live-foul set iu
drifting diggings, which is considered very good. Slate Creek is yielding from $3 to 95 per day tu the until,
but this ia the only creek outside of
Granite that is paying anythiug worth
working for. Thu Tulainuen, Mr.
Webster status, has never yet buen
fairly prospected, hnt as a considers* '
ble number of mun are at work on it j
now, and the water ia very lo*, it will j
not be long before it is known whether j
thero ia uny thing there or md. G .Id i
can be found in auy part of that coun*

pay while miners. Chinese who have j
been on thu Tulaiueun for the last
20 or 25 years are alao acattured all
over that count ry, aud will work whet-
ever they can make anything, from j
four bits per day upwards, The most
of the claims owned by them on Grun*
ito Creek have been purchased from
white miners, and our informant d<e->
not think there is one Oii:nose locator
in the camp, They get the cUims be*
cause thuy will generally pay from one ;
to two hundred dollars more for ihum

being employed m claims owned by
white miners, who nim-ttlielcss have
to pay 81,50 and $1.75 per day more
for white labor. There ares'ill about
300 men at the mines, and Mr. Wob*
Bter thinks the moid of these can get
work if thoy want it, and that uot
nmiiv more will come out till the end
of the autison. Of the seventeen saloons winch wire open there thia

scarcity if fodder along this trail, Mr.
Webster   thinks it would   be a  good

says if this were done before lhe weeds

This Afternoon's Despatches.
Special (o the t'uluuiblun.
London, Aug. IS.—Parnell, who has
been grouse shooting iu Wtcklow mountains, lias started for London.
Chicago, Aug, 18.—Thc scenes about
the lobbies of the leading down-town
hotels this forenoon were not unlike those
preceding the national convention. The
delegates to the Irish national league
present number about 1400, aud when
not engaged in getting their credentials
to admit thein to the floor of the convention hall and in obtaining tickets of admission for their friends, they were actively canvassing in behalf of favorite
leaders for the presidency, Dr. O'Kielly,
treasurer of the league, arrived this
morning, aud, assisted by'the secretary,
began to pass upon the credentials of
delegates. Ho completed hit- labors
shortly after 1 o'clock, the time for opening the convention being 2 o'clock. Four
Irish members of parliament who are hero
will be made members of the committee
on resolutions, and will be given seats in
the convention so that the platform
adopted may be in harmony with Parnell s views. It was after 3 o'clook before the convention had been assembled
and called to order. The number present is estimated to be at least 4,000.
Tremendous .cheering greeted the arrival
of Michael Davitt and Mrs. Parnell.
President Patrick Egau iu opening tlie
convention said it would be inspired liy
the presence and aided hy the council of the man who ahove all
others, not even excepting our
great   leader   himself,   holds a warm
filace in the hearts of all Irish exiles—-
lonest und fearless Michael Davitt. He
congratulated the convention ou tlie fact
that since the Poston convention the
famous Crimea Act had been abolished.
He said three successive government's
had been overthrown in England within
nine months on thc Irish qucstiou, Coercion as u system, he believed, was dead.
England's influence among the nations
would be lost until peace reigned in Ire-
laud, and there could bu no peace with
the Irish race until it had obtained home
rule. The great progress towards that
end was due largely to the ageticy of tlie
Irish national league of America, which
since the Poston convention had forwarded to thu trusteesof tho parliamentary fund $320,000. He said tho convention should preserve caution, that no
word or act should compromise those beyond the water, that it should be caution without cowardice, aud a deter
munition such as was shown by American liberty to win back tlie plundered
rights at all hazards. Egan's speech
evoked great cheering at its close. At
the conclusion of Egan's address he nominated, on behalf of the national convention, Judge Fitzgerald, of Cincinnati, for
temporary chairman. , He was chosen
without a dissenting vote.

' he annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will he found
in another column. The facts rovculed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecominms wliich
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner iu which the Compnny has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the -working expenses of the company bear to thc
total income the very small ratio of between 1" and 18 percent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is thc fact that thc interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
elaims- -which in a eoinpany of the ngo of
the Confederation Life is something to he
proud of. The ass ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, tliere is a surplus of $282,191)
over liabilities und capital combined.
Thc Increase in the assets in the last yenr
wns 9260,300. So much for whnt cnu be
dono liy rigid adherence to what the
President defined ns tho true policy of
the Company, vi/.:--"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new business."
