The principal defence to be en

St Agathe, it that the lands in question are no longer the property of
the Crown, but belong to njuattera

to Winnipeg, the Canadian
government could not refute (o re-
cogniie the certificate of the United
States government giving the goods
transit without committing an act
tantamount to. a declaration of
non-intercourse- If the injunction
fails there will be nothing for it, if
the government it determined to
maintain the monopoly, which they
have over and over again promised
to remove, but to retort to force;
and thit would raise the question
whether the country can aitord to
engage, in civil war for the sake of
upholding a policy of restriction,
rendered all the more odious by the
bad faith shown by ministers.—Mail.
A somewhat disquieting feature
in the latest newt from the Emin
Bay expedition may at lint seem to
be its account of the devastating
war between the Uganda nation
and the Unyoro, waged in a region
not very far distant from that to
ward which Stanley, at the latest?
tidings, was directing his way, But
it appears from this tame account
tbat the fortune of war. at changed,
and that King Mwanga hat now
been defeated. Thit young monarch w as not well disposed toward
Emin, whereat the King of Unyoro
had ahown himself to be friendly.
It ia clear, alto, that Emin can cooperate with Stanley, at he has been
informed of the tatter's approach
and ia awaiting him at Wadelai.
TherouteofStanleywouldapparently,
in any event, carry him well to the
north-west of the supposed region of
war, Emin's messenger might also
warn him of any danger. The
"difficulty of passage," too, referred
to in the Zantibar advices, may not
relate at all tn. Stanley's supposed
movements, but only to the experience of Emin's own expedition,
whioh has been exploring the Ka-
kibbi, a large river rising in the
Usougura mountains, and of which
the despatch speaks.—if. t.  Times.

it bat been proposed to oiler rooms
in Buckingham palace to the Qaok-

who are to arrive shortly in England
from Switzerland. It may be hoped
that thit will be done, as the Maharanee of Bartkla is nn Indian princess of the highest rank, and the
bad impression winch hns been
created in Iadia by tho leather

considerable oxtent if the Gaekwar

London, Sopt. 27.—A letter Iras

at. Wailciiii, April 17tl>, in which the
writer declares lie will nut return with
Stanley, and says: "1 havo |msseil two
years of my life here, and have retaken nlid occupied every station of
tlie country with which General Gordon .entrusted me. I havo won the
trust, and. confidence of tho people,

AMBIUCAN FINANCE*.
; Lokuon, Sept. 27. —Kir Bernard
Srimuolsuu, president of the chambers
of commerce, in his annual address,
declared that the currency, 'and tariff
arrangements now existing in the United StatcB were in such a peculiar condition that Kngland, France and Germany wore living in apprehension that
a panic may occur at any moment in
that country. "Iu tho face of this
existing state of affairs in Uie United
States, he added, "somo consolation
was afforded by the fact tut the cash
system adopted by many English trad-
era was extending."
LORD KALIKOl'KV'S HEALTH.
London, Sept. 27.—"The health of
Lord Salisbury." says tlio London correspondent of tho Manchester Guardian, "is a mutter of serious concern
to his friends and especially to his
colleagues. When thoy look to the
future of the administration the question of a prime minister of the ability
to suBttiin thelmrdoti of tho cares and
responsibilities of office, casts the
darkest shadows upon the outlook.
This is one of the great factors of the
political situation which must not be
overlooked. From this cause, if from
no other, the reconstruction of tlio
govermnoiit is possible within the
next six months. Salisbury's medical
advisers havo ordered us much repose
as -is now possiblo for the prime minister to obtain, and that is'being scrupulously observed, but I heard a very
distinguished Unionist say lust uigbt,
thut tho greatest peril of tlie government existed in the infirmity of Lord
Salisbury s health.
THIS MORMNO'B DISPATCHK-.
THE  OW.Nirit   OF THE   VOLUNTEER   AND
THE HATE OF THE THISTLE GIVE
THEIR OPINIONS OF
THE RACE.
New York, Sept. 28. — General
Paine, owner of the yacht Volunteer,
when seen regarding the Volunteer's
victory over the Thistle, said: "The
result astonishes me; that is to say. I
did not think it altogether probable.
I expected to win, but was not confident. About one minute and a half
after the start, when tho Thistle
tacked, it wus a confession of defeat.
From that time to the end thore was
no doubt." After the nice, Jamet
Bell, principal officer of the Thistle,
said he was not nt all surprised with the
result. The Thistle, he declared, had
never moved so slowly through the
wator. Ho was of opinion that there
waa something wrong with the cutter's
bottom, and she would be hauled out
of tho water today with the vie* of
hurling out what it was. He did not
consider thnt a decisive raco had been*
sailed, for that reason, and because
the wind was bo shifting thnt the Volunteer often hnd the advantage of a
breeze that tlie Thistle did not feel,
and besides the excursion boats swashed
the Thistle to a damaging extent.
FEMALE ANARCHIST FINED.
Chicaoo, Sent. 28.—Mrs. Parsons
has been fined five dollars for distributing incendiary circulars.
llErttlLT OF THE 1IACE 1IEAC11E8 ENHLAND
London, Sept. 28.—The Thistle is
not ns popular a plant thU morning
as it was yesterday. Very early in the
evening n lnrgu crowd of luesseiigera
gathered about the doors of the Oom-
iiieiciitl Unble Company's olHco, which
had announced thnt, it would givo tho
earliest result, which it did. Thero
was, however, not a cheer fur tho Volunteer when Capt. l):iiuln.id»e, the
cable superintendent, gave out the
result. An American gathering nt the
Exchncgo did, however, cheer, and
the news soon spread among tho Char
ing Cross loungers and was rapidly
carried to nil points by the "Old Wel-
lers" of passing omnibuses. The
morning papers devote great space to
cable accounts, ns alsu to comments,
but are all philosophic. Tho Sportsman hns a huge map of the course aud
3 columns rrt' a sketch of American
cup races. In errmiiiciitiiig on the last
event, the »S/)»rr>mrm says: "Few of
oven tho most enthusiastic yachtsmen
can remember such universal exoito-
moiit caused by n r co us that which
marked the contest yesterday for the
American cup. Throughout Scotland
this wiib singularly the case. No
Scotchman, however humble, but made
the contest almost a personal matter,
nnd throughout tho north yesterday's
acquntic buttle hns been for weeks the
solo subject of conversation. The
Volunteer, however, has won, and so
Scotland must sit down nnd think out
lilies for a now craft which will nuzzle
our Ameriooii friends to some better
purpose than was the case with tho
Thistle, unless, indeed, she should
mako amends in tho 2 other matches."
The Diiilij Newt begins its leader by
laying: "Yesterday wat a day of fierce
excitement for the yachtsmen of the
two continents."   It adds: "The re
sult is rather a disappointment, for the
Thistle has lost in a wind as if it were
of her own choosing." Referring, at
the end of a column of leader, to
to-morrow's second match, it concludes: "All good patriots will with
that the Thistle may then make good
her .right to boar the proud motto,
'Whtt daur meddle wi' me.'"
The Telegraph, in a column leader,
says it cannot be denied that America
hns maintained her supremacy which
alio won ;ili years ago. Tho blood of
the Vikings runs iu American veins,
but the Thistle lias yet a chance lo retrieve her reputation, uud if so a wave
of humiliation will run from New York
to California.

_    K<. fitiltj British Columbian
Wedacsday Ev«uu, Sept. ts, 1S87.
The people of Blaine and Whatcom, and all along tho sound arc
most anxious to secure connection
with the 0. P. E. by way of Westminster and Vancouver. Our friends
over the line seem to have somewhat
misapprehended the condition of
affairs, however, with respect lo tbo
connecting link. In the Blaine
Journal of the 22nd inst. we find
the following paragraph: "Mr. Mc-
Elmon, who has just returned from
Westminster, informs us that it has
been decided to re-enact the law
granting a provincial charter to the
boundary railroad, at this winter's
session of the British Columbia
parliament." This is entirely misleading. Tho charter for the Westminster Southern Bailway has not
heen disallowed by the federal government nt all, and thero is overy
probability that it will not be disallowed. We have more than once
pointed out that there is a wide difference between the circumstances
surrounding the British Columbia
boundary railway and that of Manitoba. None of the objections urged
by the federal government and the
C. P. R. against the Red River
Valley Railway stand against the
Westminster Southern, and on theso
grounds the people of this city and
district expect that our provincial
charter will be allowed to stand.
In reply to many people who
think that Canada is getting on
very well under present regulations,
and ought not to entertain any proposal for change, the Toronto Mail
says that "as a matter of fact the
Dominion is not getting on very
well." In proof of this assertion
it points out that the public debt of
Canada has increased from $99,000,-
000 in 1873 to $226,000,000 in
1887.   This enormous increase took
Since presumably for the purpose of
eveloping the resources of the
country and extending its trade.
But this purpose does not seem to
have been accomplished to any
extent. In 1873 the foreign trade
of Oanada (imports and exports)
amounted to $217,800,000; in 1883
it had reached its highest point,
$230,000,000; last year it had fallen
to $189,600,000. Notwithstanding
the expenditure of $125,000,000 in
11 years for the'purpose of expanding trade, our trade in these 14
yean has actually decreased by
$28,000,000 per annum. Moreover,
making a comparison between the
public debts of the United States
and Canada, it is found that while
the Canadian debt of $75,000,000
in 1867 has increased to $225,000,-
000 in 1887, during the same period
the debt of the United States has
decreased from $2,508,000,000 to
$1,270,000,000. There is no surplus to speak of in the Canadian
treasury, while the U. S. treasury
contains $159,991,730 in cash, and
the annual surplus is about $100,-
000,000. The per capita debt of
the United States is $25, while that
of Canada is $55. These facts call
for earnest thought on the part of
those in whose hands are the destinies of the country, and they ought
to lead every patriotic Canadian to
consider whether the principles upon
which we are managing our national
affairs are sound and safe.
It it to be observed that the
newspapermen* the United States,
with almost unanimous consent, demand the execution of the Chicago
anarchists. If by any means they
were to escape, it is claimed the
effect wonld be to embolden the
socialists everywhere to persevere in
spreading their pernicious doctrines
and applying them to the subversion
of. law and civil authority. These
papers tell us that there is no place
in-the i United States for the dynamiter, or the persons who employ
such weapont for the accomplishment of social or political revolution. It is a doctrine so repugnant
to American inttitutions that it
mult not be suffered on any pretext
to exist. Thit is a very proper sentiment Whenever doctrines are
proclaimed or practices proposed
which to conspicuously conflict with
law and order and the welfare of
I'm state, they must be firmly
cruthed. But if no countenance
should be given to the doctrines of
dynamiters when directed against
the government and people of the
United States, how can the American people make themselves appear
consistent in harboring and encouraging the Irish dynamiters whoso
avowed purpose it has been to blow
Uie Britith government into smithereens! Not only have they encouraged these merciless schemes,
but for political effect tome of their
foremost statesmen have publicly
hobnobbed with dynamiters and
fire-eaten quite aa bad at Spies or
Schwab. When these things were
taking place very few American
newspapers had a word to' say
against, them, but when plots of a
similar kind are directed againit
their .fellow oitizent, there ia a great
and unanimous outcry. It is to be
hoped this inconsistency will show
our friends across the line how
much better it it to follow the golden rule; and whenever a dynamiter
it found within the republic, let him
be tquelched at once without stopping to oonaider whether his unlawful deeds are to be directed against
America or Europe.

Z>. ROBSON,
ludtanagrex. ; KNCIU3H SPARROWS,
Tho Ortglnnl Colonists In This Country
NiuiilH.riug Fifty Pairs. — Tlieir Prefer-
cute for City Life.
It is twenty yrars since tho English
Fpnrrow was tiilum from his homo iii London nn 1 turned loose in "free America."
Probably Ihe original colonists have gono
tbo way of nil flesh, but if they had tho
truod fortune toisurvive for ten years,
tlioy must have revelled in their own
prutiticiil demonstration of tho multiplied tion table and felt as much pride in
vi. win;r their offspring aa any ofthe un-
I'ient, pnlrhivlts. No English sparrow
now culls hiniijelf English. He has aa
imich right to American citizenship as
the descendant of any puritan of the
Mayflower; his right extends baok
through aa many generations.   ■
Supt. Conkllu, who has chargo of iho
tn*-n«g--ry in Central park, liberated
lifty pairs of, English sparrows in Central
park iu tht* summer of 18(1(1, and from
these nearly nil tho English sparrows
that can be found in every city, vitiligo;
and town of the United States aro descended.
"I hnvo no doubt" observed Mr. Conk-
lin the other day. "that if anything lllto.
au aeuunitu ejustis could be taken of thui
English apart-own in this country to-day
thero would h: a pair of them lor every
man, woman, and child in tho United
i tiites. 1 am not wholly responsible for
tins uiHU'tion, for I acted under orders,
but 1 did not think at tho time what an
alllictiou tlu-y were to become, nor did
anyone else.
Tho Hpnrrows liberated by Mr. Conk'in
wero not, however,, the only ones that
wero brought to this country. A month
before about a dozen pairs were set free
inT-inily churchyard, in the-old New
York hospital grounds, then in Broad-
Way near Uende street, and in Battery
parte, Several persons are known to
h.ive biought over a few of the birds
tut rward, but no other batch was so
liuiiienuH as the one brought to Central
piirk. At tInit time New York.nnd many
<< ujrs wore iulestcd wish n pest in (he
Klta'pe of small given worms au inch long.
. li ye wormshimgfromtjvu.tre:ts insitm-
lui'i' by the tens <;f thousands, dropping
t.ow.i undor the collars of well-dressed
gi'ittlemon and upon the bonnets of
uidiest and sacrificing thuinsclves in the
inorit prodigal idolatry by strewing tho
idowniks in tliu path of pedestrians,
i ho spnrroWs, it was said, would obliterate this nuisance; nnd they did. Within
ii e \ ems after the first importation there
werel.ttle squads of English sparrows in
every sdo street tluit boasted a tree,
hunting up green worms. Tho sparrows
rw hit, ana tho green worms havo dis-
s.ppcared. It became tho fashion for
several-years for parties who went out
mo thu parks to take littlo pieces of
bread and crackers with them to feed
.he sparrows. Tho birds gathered ou the
walks and ate these offerings, never
h tuning to got too much. Many peoplo
uiilt littlo houses aud set them up in the
uees about their yards for the sparrows.
Tlie sparrows hopped into them und took
possession with perfect equanimity.
Within a few years these sparrow
houses have been falling into ruin from
neglect. Few now ones nro now set out,
and the practice of feeding tho sparrows
in tho parks has almost entirely gone
out. Yet the sparrows havo never been
known to complain. Tlio green worms
and tlieir progeny all devoured, und freo
lunches ol muckers nnd bread crumbs no
Linger forthcoming, they have philosophically turned thoir attention to methods
o: subsUtono.-. A few of them continue
i i enjoy ihe rural associations of parks
mid country villnges, but tho greater
u tuber show a marked preference to
ny hie. Wherever there aro human
I euigs congregated, they find subsistence
readily. There is enough waste from
v v ry tablo to fatten a wholo family of
t eiu, uud the sparrows havo become a
kind of street scavengers in large towns.
The later generations seem to havo increased in size in their new country.
They are as fearless as gamo cocks, nevor
h. situting to attack other winged creatures, lor lack of othor shelter, thoy
have taken possession within a few years
ofthe elevated railroad structures, whieh
l.ave lodging accommodations for millions
Of sparrows.
Mr. Conklin's estimate of the present
census as reaching the hundreds of millions is based on the fact that these
birds breed several times in a season, frequently three times and sometimes four,
each tune hatching out a brood of four
voung sparrows. Allowing for all casual-
u a, destruction of neBts, and an excessive mortality, it would not require moro
i ban two breeding seasons a year, in the
twenty years since the original fifty pairs
were liberated in Central park, to bring
tliu number of their descendants far
abovo 100,000,000. They are daring
colonists, and as soon as the young spar-
tows find their numbers in a locality Jin-
lu'ivcnieiitly large, a detachment will
hunt up newforaginggrounds. The rate
of increase is not ob great now, Mr. Conk-
li.i considers, as it was ten years ago.
I heir great numbers and the real character of the bird have changed public sentiment und placed the sparrow on tho
defensive. Within a year or two tho
English sparrow has made his appearance in ttio restaurants in the placoof tho
r«i it-bird, and he has been found so good
■ siilwtituto that the price of reed birds
h. s declined in the market. There are,
ii is said, several persons lta the city who
make it tlieir business of supplying sparrows in tho market, and hundreds aro
f»tuu daily by New Yorkers. The Chi-
n se ookmy has alio found a source of
amtweihent in training the sparrows for
i ght ing purposes. Their bills are rubbed
cuwn with one sand-paper, until they aro
ns khurp as needles, and every stroke
draws blood and feathers. The birds
wilt fight as long as any breath remains
II them, and profits of a whole week's
laundry business are often stoked and
lost on a single bird.
Wi;h these hew dangers tb combat it is
probable that the limit of the sparrow
population has been nearly reached. Tho
chances are that they never will be exterminated, but without» check to their
increase a few years more would prob-
a ly havo brought about a plague of
sparrows, as formidable as one of Kansas
grasshoppers.

Tub report of the Hudson's Bay exploration expeditions, sent out lost year,
lias just been issued. It expresses the
op.n.1111 that the straits, to specially con-
smutted vessels up to 2,000 tons, are not
navigable beforo July 1, and that the
seasoii of navigation terminates about
tliu first week of October. Further, that
in an iron whip making a voyage between,
say, Liverpool and Hudson's Bay, on arrival oil' the western ond of the straits,
the compass will not work, owing to
magnetic disturbances. Altogether, the
navigation of Hudson Strait is considered
as being more than ordinarily difficult,
with slior.es inhospitable and bleak, presenting a picture of loneliness und desolation. The only safetv in thick weather
lie* in the constant use ol the lead and
keepin,' a sharp lookout, as the dead
reckoning is frequently In error to a considerable extent. _.
THEATRICAL, NUISANCES.
Seeing  ti   Piny Winter Circumstances.
Ono evening not long since I wont tc
Ihe thoaiw aud got a very liico sent in the
orchestra. As 1 wont very oarly I had
nn unobstructed view of tlio stage. After a while tho orchestra, like a voter on
election day, began gradually to fill u]5.
Then tho trouble began, nnd, ns is
usually the ease with trouble, thero was
a woman at tho bottom of-it. My trouble
was a tall hat with an ostrich feather on
it that seemed to tickle the, big ohando-
lier, aud she sat. right in front of me, and
pbs.ru 'trO.1 my view pf^ho middle ofthe
stagc,( where the villain,, as a general
thing,' elves up the ghbst.*
I wal congratulating myself with, the
hope thnt the villain might possibly perish niisi'l-ably on tlio side of the stage,
and I'd have a chance to gloat over him,
whon Knottier female enmo in and sat
alongside) of the one already mentioned.
She had on n hat that had n flower-garden on Ihe roof j it closed out entirely
the view ou the left, Unless the villain
was kind enough to perish on the extreme right, my chances of seeing him
draw his last breath were very slim. -
I saw very little of what was happening during the Ihvst act. Thore was a
man sitting next to hie. 1 think he was
from llie U t>sfc, Whon tho curtain went
down, ho wont out, Buffering, with rage,
tlu Ikkm having obstructed his view too.
He nmit havo been n medium, for bo
bud u spirit call between eaeh act. As
he pass -d out, he almost knocked the tall
woiua.i's hat o!f.with his el how, and ho
tro I on my toes besides. When lie came"
back, he almost knocked the oilier hat
oil, and walked about some more on my
corns. Tho ladies looked around at him,
but lie never quailed; such is tho stimulated elh et of a clove.
lie frim in a talkative mood, and turning to me, be said, in &■ whisky-laden
whisper, "T wish tho men in the theatres
would put on their tall hats, just to seo
how flu women would like it."
"I have read,'1 I replied, "that some
(•■cuiushus.invented a theatre hat that
shuts up, tho samo to be worn by the
ladies."
"A tall ladies' theatre hat that shuts
down would answer tho purpose bettor,"
said he. "I was rending tl piece in tho
paper the other duy that in Corua women
wear hats in and out.of doors,, whieh
vary in height from threo to six feet, and
that th'-iv has not beon a theatrical performance in Corea for the lust four years.
I don't wonder lit'H, continued the inebriate, winking; dt mc.
I think Uio Indies in front of us must
have overti'-nnl our ConVei-satibii, for ono
said tqth'e"other, evidently talking nt us,
''It's a pity fJuijm genius euu't invent
.something that will hold a man in his
seat ljutween thu acts."
"Ye.s" ivpli'd thu other lady; "but-
iutead of it but that oould he shut up in
the thfiitiv, a man who could he shut up
would he very desirable,*'
Thy in 'biiiiie winced a littlo, jmd said
tome, "An eminent scientist attributes
the extraordinary longevity of a wotmt i
who died in Huston at the age of n hundred an I fourteen to the (act that slu
never wore a high hat hi ti tle-utiv,"
One of tin tali huts boMu'.l nbout h-
diguautlyas tlio owner iv:na(j;>d. "Tlu

the fact thnt ho never wo.it out betw e;i
tlie act.) to make astronomical obs Tuitions l lirongh a gltuts, und came back with
n breath strong onough to draw a full
iiousj."
"There is a consolation," remarked the
man from tho \Vest, "in cusa there is a
lire; the woman with a big hat will hav -
it jammed down over her eyes, and she
will never get out alive.",
The woman With the flower-garden
on the dome of iter hat was silent for u
moment, and then sho stud, "Tlu man
who keeps his mouth shut never lets
tho public know what an ignoramus he
is."
She had the lflstword, for thy Western
man had temporarily exhausted his ammunition, lie mado no reply. There
were several peoplo in pur imnuillhit.'
vicinity who made uncomplimentary r t-
marks about other people who tab"; too
mush in the theatre. One sugg'st• 1
that some people who brought th'ir
mouths with them to the thcutro slum;.!
ho compelled to leave them -Outside an I
get a check for them, as is done with
umbrellas at the urt gallery.
I loft tho theatro before the performance was over. I didn't get to s.-etiu
stage at nil. I was dazed by the cohvu;--
sution of the Western man and I Uhip
yet from the injuries my toes mutui.t-M

Pills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, and Dyspepsia, for oightoon months. My skin

Capt. Pittendrigh and Mr. McTiernan, J. Ps., were engaged all day yesterday hearing evidence in the case of
Riohard Kelts, charged with committing a rape upon - an Indian woman
named Sophie. The woman stated
that she was living with a man named
Wm. Williams, in Surrey, nearly
opposite Maple Ridge, but they were
not married. She had lived with
several other men before that at various
times. On the 13th inst deft came
her house when her man was away
and asked to be let in; he came again
later in the day and attempted to commit a criminal assualt, but did not
succeed! she ran away and escaped to
a neighbor's where she remained until
her man came for her. It came out in
evidence that this woman wus a loose
character who had been two months
in gaol at Yale, and the magistrates
dismissed the case. Mr. Moresby conducted the prosecution, and Cochrane
(for Bole, Q. C.) and Jenns (for Corbould &McColl) defended.
das v.. Electricity.
There teems to be considerable
doubt in the minds of many citizens
just now respecting the relative cost of
gu and electricity for lighting purposes, and people are puzzled to know
which kind of light they ought to take.
The electric company charges a fixed
sum for eaoh light, and it doesn't matter whether the consumer burns it at
full force or not On the other hand
consumers of gas pay for just what
they make use of, and receive the benefit of whatever economy they may
practice. It is not difficult to reekon
pretty nearly what gas will cost. The
ordinary burner consumes about 4 feot
per hour, and as gas has been reduced
to 30 ets. per 100 feet, it follows that
the cost of an ordinary burner would
be 30 els. for 26. houn. Small burn-
en, suoh as an used in bedrooms, consume only nbout 2 feet per hour.
These figures, if compared with those
asked for electricity, will enable any
one to arrive pretty nearly at the
comparative cost of the two systems,

Our Woollen Mills.
Tire Work or manufacturing Woellcit
Cloth Successfully Began.
It is now mauy months sinco operations were begun looking to the establishment of a woollen mill in this city.
A bonus had beon offered by the provincial government for the encouragement of Ihis now industry beoouse of
the great benefits it was expected to
confer ou tho country. Many poople
from the east, attracted by this very
liberal offer, looked over the ground
and went awny without accomplishing
anything of a practical kind, but
last yenr Messrs, Cunningham and
Campbell, two practical mon, succeeded in erecting a building expressly for
tho purpose uf woollen manufacture.
These gentlemen, however, do not
seem to have had sufficient capital
available to carry out the scheme.
Mr. Campbell, unfortunately,fell a victim to the Arlington Hotel fire, and
loft Mr. Cunningham with the building
up but no machinery. For a time it
seemed as if the wholo undertaking
would fall through; but Mr. James
Punch, with a groat deal of public
spirit, took hold of it just here, and
through his exertions, sided by some
of our enterprising citizens, the woollen mill has finally reached that stage
wliere it is actually running and turning out an
EXCELLENT QUALITY OF CLOTH.
This is an event upon which the people
of this city and province may fairly be
congratulated. Hitherto the market
for wool in this country has not been
such as to encourage its production.
None of it was used in the province,
and the cost of transporting it to other
markets was so heavy that buyers could
offer only extremely low prices. It
was believed, therefore, that tbe establishment of a woollen mill would
induco farmen to go more [extensively
into sheep raising, and in this way
large sums of money which are going
out of tho country every season for
mutton would be diverted into the
pockets of our people. It is to be
hoped these expectations will be fully
realized, and that the liberal bonus offered by the government will prove lo
be ono of the best investments ever
made by the province. It should be
remarked that in addition to the bonus
of 83000 offered by the government,
the eity of Westminster made a grant
of $1000. The building for this new
industry is large and commodious, and
having been erected expressly for a
woollen mill, it ia, of course, exactly
suitable for the work. It stands on
Front street, east of the foundry, and
is only a few yards distant from tho
railway track and the river, and has
first-class facilities for shipping. The
machinery is driven by a boiler contained in an adjoining building. The
various departments seem to be
VERY COMPLETE,
and have been fitted up with great
skill and foresight, snd nothing seems
to have been omitted that would add
to the efficiency of the mill or facilitate the process of manufacture. It is
known as a " one set mill," that is, it
has a complete plant of machinery for
manufacturing woollen goods from the
raw material. The machinery necessary for that purpose is as follows: A
picker, 3 carding machines, spinning
machines. (400 spindles), and looms.
On the top floor are the picker and
drying and oiling rooms. In the drying room tho wool, alter being washed,
is placed on a wiro netting and dried
by hot air conduoted in pipes from the
boiler. On the second floor are the
three carding machines and the spinning machinery, and on the fint floor
are the machines for warping, weaving
and pressing. Tho>ashing, dressing
and dying processes are performed in
an adjoining building. The process of
making cloth out of wool is somewhat
intricate and very interesting, and it
will repay any one to visit the factory
and learn by actual observation how
the thing is done. For the benefit of
those who cannot conveniently do this
we may say that the wool, when received, is fint thoroughly washed to
remove the dirt. Sticks and any other
foreign matter aro not removed by this
process. It is then dyed according
to the color desired, and goes to the
drying room where it remains until
THOROUGHLY DRIBS.
After this it goes to the picker, when
it is completely separated and taken to
the carding machines. In the fint
carder, or "breaker," the burr eylind
en remove all sticks, straws, seeds,
and other foreign substances, and the
wool passes through the other machines
until the process of carding has been
completed. The wool comes from
these machines wound loosely upon
large spools, and is then taken to the
spinning machines, where the 400
spindles quickly convert it into yarn.
These are adjusted with great exactness so that yarn of any size required
in manufacturing may be produced,
either warp or weft. The warp forma
the groundwork of the fabric, and the
weft ia the filling. When a sufficient
quantity of yarn hss been spun, it is
taken down stain to the looms, of
which there are five, and is there
made into cloth, flannel, blankets, ete,
After coming from the looms the oloth
is pressed and washed, and is then
ready for market. During the past
week the mill hu been manufacturing
flannel, and over
ONE THOUSAND YARDS
have been turned out A small quantity was washed and finished yesterday,
and will be sent up to - the provincial
exhibition at Chilliwhack. Before the
end of the week it is expected the first
batch of goods from the mill will be
ready for the market, and we hope to
see many of our citizens appearing ih a
Complete suit of Britian Columbia
cloth 1 Tbe blanket machine has not
beon put in operation yet, but will
probably be st work shortly. The
qualities of material tamed out at
present ran from medium coane to
tine. The company intends next year
to add another set ol machinery which
will make from medium coarae to
coarsest. This will enable the mill to
turn out anything from the finest to
the coarsest woollen goods. The
material produced is entirely satisfactory in quality, and will no doubt meet
with a ready market. All the wool
purchased hitherto has been grown in
the province, and Mr. Punch is confident that he will be able to procure all
the raw material required without
going beyond the boundaries of British Columbia. The daily average output of all qualities will be about 250
yards.

There are Cheap Panaceas for various human ailments continually cropping
up. Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure has no affinity
with any of these. Unlike them, the
article is derived from the purest sources,
is prepared with tho utmo.it chemical
skill, and is a genuine remedy and not a
pallative for Biliousness, Constipation,
Kidney troubles, imyurity of the blood,
and female complaints.
tehees from Ike Mace.
Much surprise is expressed everywhere at the result of the great international yacht race at New York yesterday. It was believed generally that
if the Thistle did not win she would at
least give the Volunteer an exceedingly lively time- Interviews with the of-
ficum of the Scotoh craft brought out
nothing of sufficient importance to explain the real cause of the yacht's
want of success. It is asserted that
the wind failed her for some time, thst
the tide was advene, and that a multitude of small crafts which followed the
race congregated so near as to interfere With both her wind and water; but
sll these disadvantages combined seem
insufficient to account for the wide
apace which divided. the two yachts
when thoy crossed the winning line.
It is thought by a great many that
Oapt Barr, who sailed tho Thistle,
mode a mistake in tacking, but he explains that be was luoking'for better
wind, , and the . explanation seems
reasonable enough in view of the fact
that there was no wind to apeak of for
aome time alter the race began. Capt.
Barr and Mr. Bell both expressed
much disappointment at the behavior
of the Thistle, and the orew declared
that there was something the matter
with her bottom—something that impeded her progress. She is to bo
taken out ot Ule water to-day, and an
examination made so as to ascertain
whether there is really any ground for
this belief. All those who belong to
the Thistle unite in deelaring that sho
never sailed so badly. The performance of yesterday, while it discounts
the Scotch yacht a good deal, does not
lessen the interest attaching to the
contest. There are two more trials
yet before the race is over. If the
Volunteer wins to-inorrow,ol course the
contest will be at an end, but if the
Thistle should carry to-morrow's race,
the excitement will go up to fever
heat It is to be hoped thore will be
no more interference on the pert of
speculators, and that in the two coming trials the true merits of the two
yachts may be made apparent

"Northrop ft Lyman's Vegetable Discovery Is a valuable medicine to all who are
troubled with indigestion. I tried a bottle of it after suffering for some ten years,
and the results ore certainly beyond my
expectations, It assists digestion -wonderfully. I. digest my food with no op.
