The Two Fleets.
Tlio llritish Squadron, in Canadian waters, commanded by Vico
Admiral Algernon McLennan Lyons,
is composed of tlie following vessels,
mostly new and of high speed: Bell-
erophon, u screw iron ship, armor
plated, 7,550 tons displacement,
carrying a battery of 20 heavy rifled
guns, soma of which throw projectiles of COO pounds weight; steam
corvettes Canada, 2,380 tons, 10
rilled guns; Oomus, 2,380 tons, 12
rifled guns, lately on the Pacific
station and well-known at San Francisco as the ship which carried
Princess Louise from this port to
Victoria, British Columbia; Emerald,
2,120 tons, 12 rifled guns; Pylades,
1,410 tons, and Tourmaline, 2,120
tons, 12 rifled guns; steam*gun-boats
Bullfrog, 406 tons, 4 rifled guns;
Lily, 720 tons, 3 rilled guns, and
Mallard, 425 tons, 4 rilled guns.
The corvettes are steel cruisers and
the gun-boats are what are known
as composite vessels-steel with
heavy wood backing. The United
States Squadron under Roar Admiral Stephen B. Luce, is composed
of the following vessels, with but
one exception all of them wooden,
of obsolete types and slow speed:
Richmond, second rate, flag-ship,
1,600 tons, 14 guns, of which two
are 8-inch rifles converted from the
old 11-inch smoth bore by the insertion of a rifled tube, throwing a
projectile of 180 pounds; a 60-pound-
er Parrot rifle ou forecastle, and
the remaining guns, 90-pounder
Dahlgren smooth-bores; Galena,
third rate, 910 tons, 8 guns, of which
one is an 8-inch rifle, another a 60-
pounder Parrot aud the others
smoothbores; Ynntic, third rate,
410 tons, 5 guns, and Dolphin, third
rate, 1 gun. The last is but a despatch-boat and is one of the steel
vessels constructed at Rooch's works,
and acceptance of which, as it did
not, in the opiiffiWWSelftefory
Whitney, come up to the ter.ns of
the contract, caused much controversy.—S. F. Bulletin.

Stanley's Route.
The latest despatches from Mr.
Stanley repoit that he has cut looso
from his base on the Aruwimi River and has moved across the country
toward Wadelai. The Aruwimi, it
should be stated, is a branch of the
Congo, joining the main river about
100 miles below Stanley Falls. By
taking this branch of the Congo
Stanley reaches a point within 250
miles of Emin Pasha's headquarters.
It is a curious fact that General
Gordon in 1884 contemplated reaching the headwaters of the Kile by
the route taken by Stanley in 1887.
In January of that year General
Gordon wrote the secretary of the
British Anti-Slavery Society that it
it was 250 miles from Bahr Gazelle
to Stanley's station on the Aruwimi branch of the Congo, whioh be
spoke of as being navigable nearly
all the way. Stanley left the mouth
of the Congo on the 21st of March,
and he arrived at Aruwimi ou the
2d of June, the journey occupying
soventy-thre9 days. The danger
line was struck when he entered the
territory of Tippu Tib, or rather
the territory devastated by the followers of this slave hunter; but it
is reported that Stanley made terms
with Tippu Tib and started on his
journey to the province of Emin
Pasha in tho belief that no serious
opposition would be offered by the
natives. His plan was to form an
intrenched camp on the Aruwimi,
and move in light fighting order
across the unknown territory to
Lake Albert Nyanza, and it is probable that he is carrying out this
programme. It is now understood
that Stanley goes to the Upper
Nile country in tho interest of the
British Government. This fact, taken in connection with the reported
encouragement of the Italians at
Massowah and on the Abyssinian
frontier, would indicate that there
is to be another period of activity
on the part of the British to restore thoir prestigo in the Nilo
country. The Italian troops went
to the Red Sea in the face of the
protest of France, but with the con
sent apparently of Great Britain.
They have been worsted in their engagements with the Arabs as well
as with the Abyssinians. and it is
now reported that England has used
her influence in Abyssinia to restrain the people of that oountry
from making further attacks on
the besieged Italians. This has provoked hostile comment in [Franco,
and it is said that an explanation
will be demanded. The inference
drawn by Frenoh papers is that
England has put forward Italy to
do what she deemed it impolitic to
do herself, and that some under
standing inimical to the interest of
France has been arrived at between
the two governments. If Stanley
goes to the Province of Emin Pasha
to exert English influence there,
and if English influence is to be exerted ou the Red Sea through the
Italians on ono side and the Abyssinians on the other, the prospect
of England strengthening her grip
on the Nile country is good. — Chicago Inter-Ocean.

FAILURE OP LABRADOR FBHERIES.
St. Johns, N. F. Aug. 14. — The
news of the utter, failure of the Labrador tisheries received to-day, confirms
tlio worst fears of the people. The
alarming report is rrrcoived that 1000
vessels are coming baok clean, und
that the romaiuing 500 craft have only
afow quintals of fish each. This is
the most disastrous thing that could
happen to tho fishery colonies here,
which depend entirely upon the yield
of the ocean for thoir existence. The

people are in reality made paupers by
the failure of their only industry and
must face starvation this winter.
AN UNLIKELY STOKV.

sunk with all hands on board. The
stranger says that tho cruiser at onco
put to sea, but that many people in
the town saw the American vessel's
masts goby the board whon struck by
the shot from the cruiser, and thst
the fishing vossol Bank immediately.
Ho states that there were 15 sailors
drowned.

San Fkancisco, Aug. 10.—Jn tlie
statement to the effect that an agree
ment had been made between the Pacific Coast. Steamship Co. and Ihe
Northern Pacific R. R., whereby tho
former would forward all its San *Frnn
cisco freight to the east over tho N. P.
R. R. by way of Tacoma, it was said
that tho percentage of through mt -a
accorded to the Steamship Co. by the
Canadian Paciflc road was not enough
and that the former company has
drawn out of ita agreement. Gov.
Perkins, of the Pacific Const Steamship Oo., whon asked about the matter admitted it, claiming however that
the agreement did not bar them from
delivering freight to either Portland,
Tacoma, or Vnncouuer. "We are
common carriers," said he, "and serve
all roads." We have no preference,
and we will send by Canadian, Northern, or Union Pacific; the shipper himself will decide by which road he wants
to send his freight.
ARRIVAL of the thistle.
New York, Aug. 10.—The Scotch
yacht Thistle about whioh so much
anxioty has been expressed arrived at
the bar at 4 o'clock this a. m. Capt
Barr reports a pleasant passage except
three days rough weather, and three
without a puff of wind) the rest of the

claims to speed, lt will take about
two weeks to clean her up, aet bar topmast, and bend on her racing laus.
She came over under small mainsails,

Excursionists who have made the
Alaska tour express themselves
greatly charmed with the trip and
the novelty of the attractions to be
found in these northern waters.
Chief among these novelties are the
great glaciers, sorio of which present a spectacle never lo be forgotten by those who are fortunate
enough to witness it. The Davidson glacier presents a face of solid
iee nearly 400 feet high, and when
the rays of the sun fall upon this
crystal wall of congealed moisture
the effect is splendid beyond all description. This glacier projects its
huge front over tho navigable waters, and as the slow movement of
the mass forces it over its supports,
immense pieces are broken off by
their own weight and form icebergs.
It extends away back inland a long
distance, and covers a mountain
summit 4,500 feet in height. There
are many other glaciers besides, no
fewer than eight being in sight from
one point. One of the great advantages of the Pacific coast as a
resort for tourists is the variety and
wonderful healthiness of its climate,
and the unequalled diversity of its
scenery. From Alaska to Panama
the whole coast is rich in variety of
grandeur and loveliness. As a
summer resort, or a winter resort,
or a health resort, it possesses attractions whioh no other coast ean
rival.
Sir. George Stephen, Sir Donald
A. Smith and Mr. W. 0. VanHorne
are on their way to this coast. The
visit of the manager of the 0. P. R.
will furnish an excellent opportunity for our board of trade to present the claims of the Westminster
Southern Railway, and we hope,
that opportunity will not be neglected. It has always seemed to us
that if the facts in connection with
this proposed road were plainly
brought to the notice of the C.P.R.
authorities, all opposition from that
quarter would instantly cease.
There can be no question in the
mind of any person familiar with
situation of the proposed road but
that it will become an important
feeder for the 0. P. R. We have
held that both passengers and
freight from Southern California
and Mexico would be drawn in
larger volume to the 0. P. R if the
trip from San Francisco could be
made without encountering the nas-
tiness of a sea voyage. The San;
Francisco Bulletin of a late date
mentions that a very large number
of those who came to California
thia season have gone over the California <k Oregon Railway to reach
Portland, the Sound, and the C.P.R.
In an article which appeared in the
Columbian on the 2nd inst. this
very result was predicted. A great
many more people would come from
California to British Columbia, and
return east over the 0. P. R, if
they could make the round journey
without encountering the 900 miles
of ocean travel between San Francisco and Vancouver. We think it
quite possible to convince the C.P.R.
managers that it would be in the
interest of their road to have the
Westminster Southern built, and
one of the obstacles in the way of
Ihe enterprise would disappear.
'Che discoveries of rich mines in
place* hitherto unexplored and inaccessible in the interior of this
province is one of the many benefits
resulting from the opening of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. The
Colombian long ago predicted that
this would take place. The mineral
belt in this province lies to a considerable extent in a region which
it waa scarcely possible to reach
without the aid of railways or public roads of some sort But roads
usually follow settlement instead of
preceding it, and but for the railway
these rich deposits of precious met
al would probably have remained
undiscovered and undeveloped for
many yean to come. In quartz
mining the employment of heavy
machinery is essential, and this
cannot be brought to the mines
without some kind of facilities for
transportation. The recent discoveries at Rock Greek promise development* that will eclipse anything
in the history of gold mining, while
the Illecillewaet silver and galena
veins aro even still more important.
A good silver mine aa a rule is moro
largely beneficial to the country
than gold, because the work of development ia greater and a larger
number of men has to be employed.
We look for most important results
from Illecillewaet The indications
are' remarkably good with respect
to the quality of ore, and in quantity it aeemt to be almost without
limit Very little attention haa
hitherto been paid to the galena
contained in thu ore, bnt arrangement* will undoubtedly be made at
once for reducing thii to lead at the
aame time that the silver is extracted.. These discoveries have a very
important bearing on the mining
industry of the province beyond the
amount of wealth they promise to
yield They will give a great stim-
ulous to prospecting, and extensive
prospecting in a region so rich in
minerals ii oertain to remit in other
discoveries. The future is full of
promise.

2*£ana@rer. WHY THE BERNHARDT DISDAINS THE
USE OF THE FASHIONABLE CORSET.
Hie Secret or Her ClraMAal Xotttaentt
and. UistneHjM Posetr. - tstrngtaj't
Weak Points sn conparal with
Bcrtfttrdt.
Bornhnnlt never had a corset. She bas
never fristiriieil a pair ol stays around her
in her Hie, which accounts lor her suppleness and inimitable grace. For one reason, ehe hns always been so thin, that
there has been no need ol lor ecrsets to
ennfino her into a size small enough lor
her gowns. AVhen she goes to the dressmaker sho wears a smooth, but not tight
waist of a heavy -white linen, which the
di-crrsninkiT Jills out iu hollow places with
n fcw loids of cotton batting fitting the
waist ol the gown over it. But this is
'only worn lor smoothness and not to reduce her waist, On tlie stage she does
not wear even that, which account lor her
long, smooth strides and the caso of her
jroscs, that rather melt and dissolve into
ench other than change. In tbe winter
she wears tn the theatre a long, lull gown
of heavy Chinese^ crepe, of which tho
sleeves are tight-fitting nnd como only to
t lie elbow, while it hangs loose Irom throat
to ankles. Over this dress the slips on
her costumes, never removing it unless
llie toilet is decollete. This China crepe
gown keeps her warm ond adds tbe requisite fullness to her figure without In the
slightest degree impeding the freedom ol
her movements.
It is this fact which permits that exquisite equipoise ol bodily movement and
the lotig, sweeping motion of her arms.
Nut only actors, but artists and sculptors,
sat in the Iront tow during tbe Bernhardt
season endeavoring to learn the secret ol
her cat-like, sinous grace. Much ol it is
natural, of course, and would be noticeable in any dress and under any circumstances, bnt muoh olit is also due to the
fact that the muscles ol her back, hips
nml waist have never been enfeebled and
stiffened by the use ol stays. Mrs. Langtry is said to have a beautiful figure ol the
conventional sort, dresses well and is
called graceful; but when-the.two women
nre placed side by side in the photograph
which they hnd taken together, Snmh
Bernhardt shows instantly the superiority
ol tier whole, tone to that ol the Beauty.
The universal verdict has been that it
Linked like tlie picture of a lady and her
maid, and Langtry wasn't the lady.
Langtry's is tho.perfection of form accord-
ding to the English fashionable code, and
ns l)u Marnier pictures it in his representations ol society girls. Thnt is to say, her
waist is brought to an ideal smallness;
her shoulders are squared and lifted,
broadened out of proportion to the rest of
her body, and from tight lacing she has
become cbickcubresteu. The only real or
statuesque beauty she has lelt is the ex-
auisite line irom the crown oi her head
own the nape of her neck. Happily she
has not been able by any artificial means
to spoil that. But all around her body,
about two inches below the arms, can bo
clearly seen through the silk, satin or
wool oi her gown a hard ridge which
marks the upper limit ol her corset. The
same peculiar physiological phenomena
may be observed in almost every actress
who has a conventional reputation ior
dressing well. In 'Theodora' and as
'Lady Macbeth' Bernhardt wears a Jersey
next her skin, over which tho soft folds of
fine crepes or silks hang, not made into a
waist, but caught on the shoulders with
broaches and held about the hips with the
broad metal girdles which she has made
so fashionable. Miss Eastlake bas never
worn a corset, but replaces it with something nearly as bad, a broad heavy linen
band which gives her figure Its peculiar
look. In 'Clito,' however she dispenses
with it and gains greatly in grace thereby.
As 'Hello' she wears a complete suit oi
silk webbing and drapes, over it some
lilty yards or more ot India tissue, which
is so fine and Kit that a double width
ol it can b* drawn through a ring.   _

A Divert t-lfbl wttli a filiark.  '
A diver named Quintrec had a remarkable fight with a formidable fish called
the boultous or bondro, a kind oi shark
which infests tbe Breton coast at Douarn-
cnoz, the other day. Quintrce hail a narrow escape. The diver, an old salt, was
employed by the Government, and in
pursuit oi bis daily labor duly descended,
in a diving apparatus, off the Douarnenes
Pier for the purpose oi laying the foundation of an addition to that structure.
While ho was at the bottom ol tbe sea
tlie men who were working the air pump
in the pontoon boat above were suddenly {tightened by ieeling the alarm signal.
They instantly pulled up, and brought a
large boultous, nearly eight feet long, to
the surface, The marine monster's head
formed three-quarters of his length, and
his under jaws were of immense site.
Shortly afterward Quintreo came up, hie
hand on the air pipe oi his helmet, and
his diving apparatus somewhat damaged.
When he went down to his work be had
scarcely got to the last rung ol the ladder
when he saw the sea monster lying between two huge lumps oi rock. He had
in his hands only his stone chisel and a
hammer, and he intended to go up tor a
crowbar at once, but the fish was too fast
(or him.
It came toward him through tho green
water with its enormous jaws wide open.
Without losing a moment Quintrce managed to wound the animal in tho throat
with his chisel, and then held it down
on a stone while he drew his knifo nnd
made, hole in ill body through whicli
he passed a rope, and thus sent tlio fish
to the surface. Had it not been for his
quickness and dexterity, the diver, owing
to the rents which the fish would mako
In his apparatus, would have been
drowned, and then devoured. As lt happened, it wu the boultous that was. not
only defeated bnt eaten, for Its body was
divided among the victor and his comrades, who made a capital bouillabaisse oi
tho prime parts.       London ~'
"       Contracts.       "*"'
A merchant wanted a milliner. Miss
Mnclay was open to on engagement oi this
kind. The merchant hearing other, dispatched a letter offering the situation, and
asking for her answer by return mail.
Directly she had read the letter, she
wrote her acceptance on a postal catd.
But instead of mailing this herself, she
gave it to a small boy to mail for her,
which small boy carried it iu his pocket,
with his pegtop sand inarbles,for four days
before lie posted it. Meanwhile tho
merchnn tmade other arrangements, nnd
when Miss Maelay reached bis store
according to the terms of the card which
had lingered in the pocket oi the small
boy, she was notified her services wero
not required. Tbo Supreme Court ol
Illinois held thnt sho could not obtain
any damages lor Uie breach oi a contract
without proving a contract to commence
with. She had proved a proposal whicli
required that she should assent by return
itinil, nnd as she had not assented by return mail (the small boy being her agent
in the matter), but by a mall four days
Inter, she had tailed to show acceptance
of the merchant's offer. And judgment
was given against the milliner.

HUMBUG IN WINES,
Dan Native Brands are Mnde Fortlfa
lu tbe Cellars or Sew Torfc.
"We make from thirty to thirty-five
millions of gallons of American wine yearly, nnd wo do not import over five millions. Those figures tell whether the
wino drunk by our peoplo is foreign or
American." So sjroko a New York wine
dealer. "By far tho larger part of tho
American wine, however,' he added, "is
not Bold as American, hut as foreign
wines. Only a (ow days ago I visited the
cellar ol one of the largest wine merchants
in the city. It contained many thousands
of gallons of American wine, the casks
being marked 'St. Julien, 'Medoc.' etc.,
through the list oi prominent foreign
brands. Hotel men go there nnd order
these wines bottled and labelled ns foreign
wino, and I snw in that cellnr many
thousands ol labels ready ior use In tins
way. These parties take good care not
to imitnto ii trade innrk, but they givo the
wine the foreign namo and self it us foreign to theft guests, It Is a strictly confidential business as between tlie wiue
merchant and the hotel keeper. The
American wino is bottled right there in
tho cellnr, marked with tlie foreign label,
and then sent to the hotel, so tlint the
hotel proprietor is'not put in tlie power
o( his steward ot caterer by the latter
knowing Hie source from which his employer receives his wines. 01 course this
does not npply to all hotels.
"It is not difficult to see tho advantage
ol all this," went on tho wine dealer.
"It enables the hotel mnn to sell his wines
at a profit ot 100 to 200 pur cent., and it
enables tho American wine producer to
dispose oi his product, that might otherwise be left on his hands.
"But one ol the most interesting deceptions," ndded the wine dealer, "is that
perpetrated by some of the creme de la
crime upon their confiding Iriends. Some
rich individual, who has a coat ol arms,
and donts ol arms can always bo got in
London at tho tight figure, will order a
quantity of American wine bottled, nnd
have a label with his coat ol arms stamped
on tho bottle. Then be confides to his
friends, as they loll over the dinnei table,
thut tho wine was eqprcssty imported lot
his private use. It's an innocent sort ol
a fraud, und the wine probuhiy tastes t
good ileal hotter for it.
"But Belli .; American wines for foreign
is nothing to ihe trick ol making spurious
wine out of cider, or fruit acid with
enough American wine lot a body. Thii
is not only a deception; it is morally, am;
ought to be legally, a crime. .Yet mau)
thousands of gallons ol such stuff are disposed ol yeaily In New York."—Sun.
TFACHINO.
In his remarkable articles oo Napoleon
recently published in the 'Revue del
Deux Mondes," M. Talne has the follow
ing;
"One result oi his mental structure wai
that never did lie work on nothing (jamais
il nefonctionne a vide). That ia to-day our
groat danger. For three centuries wc
have been losing moro and more tho frrl
and direct view ol things. Under tin
constraint ot an education stay-at-home
multiple, nnd prolonged, we sludy, in
place of objects, signs; Instead ol tin
land, a map; in place ol animals engage!
in the struggle tor lift-, nomenclatures
classifications, aud, at best, the lifclesi
specimens of the museum; instead ol serf
tient and acting men, statistics, history
literature, philosophy; in brief, printer:
words, and, what is worse, abstract words,
becoming more abstract Irom ono century
to another; more remote irom experience,
more difficult to understand, less inmiage-
ablo and more misleading, particularly at
to man nnd society."
If it wore determined and generally accepted that the career of a public-school
teacher should bo iu this kind oi teaching,
and that the pay should be liberal ior all,
while all the honors and rewards ot the
profession should be open to those who
earned them by the most effective work,
thero would bo no lack of good teachers,
and there would be constant progress and
improvement. It would then become
possible for each child to be trained
healthily, naturally, and effectually, to the
utmost of his or her personal capacity.
The fatal temptation to haste would be
removed. The aim of the teachers would
come to bo to mako tho most of each
mind submitted to their guidance. And
this would not involve cramming the
mind with multifarious, complex, and ill-
related matters. It wonld lead rather to
training each mind to tho full uso of the
powers it .was found to possess. The
reading of tho English language would
not be taught by exercises in classes like
regiments, In which no ono scholar can do
more than go hastily over the few words
that may fall to him. It would be possible for each scholar to learn tho language
as an instrument of thought, and, in the
study of that instrument, to acquire the
power and tho habit ol thought. Words
could bo mnde to bo to them not dimly
understood signs, tho form nnd sound o(
whicli thoy must master, and no more;
but signs ol real significance, representing
many and interesting things, capable of
being used with clearness, precision, and
force.
. Tho same principles would apply to tho
other studies. In all the great gain — a
gain simply incalculable as compared
witii tho presont system—would bo tho
possibility ol fairly developing the powcis
ol tho child's mind by . continuous, orderly, and natural course oi actual exercise.

FACTS:—
The SecurUy offered to policy holders ts
unsurpassed by any Compnny doing business In Canada,
It. has no schemes of Insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the publlo can be read

Its position is ascertained annually from
a detailed valuation in which every llcm
of liability Is Included.
Its progress has been unexampled in
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Kb policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfel table after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon an equitable basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger profits to nny other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Query.—A correspondent writers:
"Can an alien from America, who hns
served in tho American army, claim
and hold a pension from tho U. S.
government nnd still be a British subject. There is a person here (Snrroy)
holding a largo tract of land: can lie
hold both pension and pre-emption
land?" We are of opinion that ho
can. We believe it is not necessary
to be an American subject in order to
draw a pension from tho United .Status.

Diverting Trade.—The San Francisco Bulletin says: "The Canadian
Pacific Railway is not only takiux
freight from California to domestic
Atlantic ports, but is bringing eastern
freight for California. Tho last steamer from Victoria brought from the east
lor this port 1200 boxes soap, 61 boxes
hats and caps, 10 cases collars, 3C3
cases boots and shoes, 50 cases samples,
300 caaes canned goods, 100 pkgs. fish,
10 pkgs. harness, 100 pkgs. rubbers
and 60 coses envelopes. Tho compo
tition from that sourco cannot be ignored by managers of American railways across tlio continont,"
Intkmor Cnors.—During the past
two or threo weeks the farmers and-
ranchers in this and neighboring valleys have been busy "haying," and the
crop Is reported to be very heavy and
good generally. Below the town several of the ranohers have not yet commenced 'cutting owing to a variety of
reasons, ohief among which is wetness'
of soil owing to the recent overflow of
the Thomson. The hay harvest of
these ranches will be none the less
heavy on that account; although thoir
cutting, in some cases, will be late in
the season. All tbe crops of the district are reported on favorably, and an
unusually brisk fall business is expected in Karalcops.—Sentinel.

Sikator Sherman.—Senator Sherman and his party, consisting of several gentlomon prominont iu Ohio He-
publican politics, arrived hero by tho
train from the east on Sunday, and
left immediately for Victoria on their
trip to the Sound and probably Alaska.
The whole of the party expressed in
strong terms their admiration of the
scenery on this route, and the senator
hopes to hsve another opportunity of
enjoying it on his return hero in about
three weeks. As regards the seizure
of the sealers, he was not in possession
of the fscts, and in any case would
scarcely desire to express an opinion
on tlie subject. The senator looks
well and hearty, aud does not seem to
be older than when as secretary of the
treasury in tlie administration of Pros-
iden Hayes, he so successfully carried
out the operations whioh enabled the
nation to resume specie payments.—

TnE MusiOAi Convention. — Our
readers should not forgot the R. B.
George convention which opons in this
city to-morrow night. The aims of
this convention are to teach persons
to read music, to improve tho voice,
to encourage congregational and Sabbath- school singing, to awaken a greater interest in music, and to establish
a penuament musical society. Tho
company has been holding similar conventions throughout the United States
for years, nnd its success is attested
by the vory fluttering , testimonials
which it produces. In Victoria it has
held two successful conventions, nnd
arrangements havo been mado for doing Vancouver and Nanaimo. We
should be voiy glad to see a large number of our citizens avail themselves of
the advantages of this couvontioii.
Music has almost become a necessary
part of ono'B education now-a-dnys,
and it is one of tho must beautiful accomplishments. The convention opens
in the Methodist church to-morrow
night
 . . .	
The Disahowed Boad.—Mr. Van
Home wss interviewed by a reporter
in Montreal tho other day with respect
to the Red River Railway. It seems
that the 0. P. B. is transferring its
through butiness with the United
States from Emerson to Gretna. Mr.
Van Home explained that there was
not business enough in that direction
lo justify two roads, nnd the O. P, 'twill contine its business hereafter to
the Manitoba and Southwestern.
When asked if this change would nut
injuriously affect Emerson, Mr. Van
Home said: "It must, of course, but
thete is no way to help it sn far as tho
0. P. R. Is concerned * * * Emerson will be reached by Norquay's
new railway, and the people thero
have little to complain of.' "And do
you think," asked the reporter, "that
Norquay's line will be an accomplished
fact ?" "I do not care to express an
opinion on tho question," answered
Mr. Van Home, " but we are in the
meantime making arrangements nn the
presumption that it will be."
It is a heharkabu vmtt that Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil is as good for internal as external use. For disease of
the lungs and throat, and for rheumatism, neuralgia, crick in tho bac1.;,
wounds and sores, It ia the best known
remedy, and much trouble is saved by
having it always on hand. Jacob Loock*
man, Buffalo, says he has been using it
for rheumatism. He had such a lame
back that he could do nothing; but one
bottle entirely cured him.
Personal.
D. S. Curtis and family are rusticating on the North Arm,
A. R. Reid, 0. P. R. Btationory

afternoon.
Col. McGregor left this morning for
Squamish River in company with four
Norwegians. He will be absent about
a week.
R. C Brace, druggist, Tarn, says: "I
have no medicine on my shelves that
sells faster er gives better satisfaction
than Dr. Thomas' Eolectrio Oil, and tho
aale Is constantly Increasing, the past
Sear being the largest I have ever had.
ne of my customers was curod of catarrh by using three bottles. Another
was raised out of bed, whore he had
been laid up hr a long time with a lame
back, by using two bottles. I have lots
of customers, who would uot be without
It over night."

Co. had stretched two wires across
Columbia Bt. and had suspended their
ai;,'ii from it. He had notified Mr.
Cunningham to remove it, but it yet
remained. He thought something

Artistic Street lm|ir-»vriuent.
A petition was presented to the
council laat night by the property
owners and residents on Olintonst,
enclosing a plan and asking that that
thoroughfare might bo improved and
graded according to the plan. The
plan, which is drawn by Messrs. Clow
& Maclure, is to be adopted only on
wide streets. Clinton st. ia 00 ft. wide,
and affords an opportunity of applying tho suggestion of Messrs. Clow &
Macluro. Tho plan provides that the
roadway shall bo 51 ft. wide only.
This would leavo 24 ft. *n eaeh aide of
tho roadway for sidewalk. The sidewalk is to be placed 0 feet out from
tho lino of fence, and shall bo 12 ft.
wide. The space between tho sidewalk and Btreet boundary nnd sidewalk
and roadway limit shall ue sodded and
planted with trees. The roadway
will be slightly arched so that tho
heavy rains of winter shall not waBh
it away. The plan is cortainly worthy
of consideration, and if tho residents
on Clinton st. carry it out, they will
have sucoeodod iu beautifying it and
making it the handsomest stroet in
tho city. _   	
That "Tocsin op tiw Soul, the Dinner Bell," as Byron calls It, suggeata
no pleasing reflections to the dyspeptic,

he eats, which lies undigested, a weight

Mr. John Magwood, Victoria Road,
writes: ".Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable
Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure is a splendid medicine. My customers say they.
never used anything so effectual. Good
results immediately follow Its use. I
know its value from personal experience,
having been troubled for 1) or 10 years
with Dyspepsia, and since using It digestion goes on without that depressing feeling so well known to dyspeptics. I havo
no hesitation in recommending it in any
case of Indigestion, Constipation, Heartburn, or troubles arising from a disordered stomach."
