lliir lii'iid Mines.
Mr. K. HI. .luliitson returuod on
Tuesday night from a trip to the
Big Bend country. Ho is one of
the four partners who compose the
Ophir Bed Rock flunio Company,
carrying on operations on MoCull-
iiujjh citruk, und from him we learn
the following particulars regarding
that rich mineral Motion of this
provinco. On reaching Revels' ike,
he secuted a pack horse and started
across the country for the camp
which is situi'ted some 70 miles
north of Rev stoke, the journey
occupying three days and twonigbts.
The trail was a diffioult one to travel over. In mnny instances ho had
to dismount and let the horse trav
el by itself It was .also a danger
ous one, for on one side was the
swift (lowing Columbia down some
1500 to 2000 feet of yawning chasms
into which, if anyone fell, the chances
are that it would be the last ever
seen of him. Mountains from 2000
to 0000 feet had to be gane over.
The trail itself had to be cleared in
somo cases, whilst in others tho
horse jumped over the hurned logs
lying across it, caused by mountain
bush fires. There is no stopping
place along the route, so that the
traveler is compelled to depend on
the miners met en route for grub.
The whole country is covered with
mountains, stumps, trees, rocks and
boulders. About half a mile to the
north of Hevelstoke the indications
of the existence of gold begin. The
camp was reached on the evening
of the 15th. On the 16th, with his
partners, he went over and examined the claim. He found the hydraulic apparatus in good working
order. Men wore employed in
hoisting boulders, whilst others were
putting gravel in the flume. He
went down on the riin rock and
picked up .$7.50 iu small gold before dinner time. In tlie afternoon
he walked up the creek about a
mile. Found gold all along hid
trove's. Whenever gravel enough
could be found to pan it yielded
from 50c. to $2 per pan.
a_ ..TUB CpilEANV'tt. JVPRK8i_ __
Tlio Ophir Company's works Mr.
Johnson claims must bo seen to be
conceived. Tlio flume was 250 feet
long; 200 feet of which is built of
stone boulders taken from the creek;
this tunnel is roofed with tree trunks
2 feet thick, and again covered with
12 foet of solid boulder. On tup
of this runs the track and cars of
the dumping carts. A large waste
wator flume is on the left side of
the creek and an hydraulic flume on
tho right hand aide. A blacksmiths
shop and a carpenters shed, men's
houses and all the necessary conveniences for working the claim to
advantage are erected. On the 18th,
Mr. Johnson in a couple of hours
picked up 912 in small nuggets.
The men about the camp were attending to their usual work. On
the 10th he helped to get out timber for an extra flume. On the
afternoon of the 20th they cleaned
the gravel from the bed of the creek
and therefrom in a couple of hours
picked up $95 to $100 as the result of two hour's work.
Ill-Ill KUC■; NOT ItKACHEll.
Bed rock in this claim had not.
yet been reached; but the rim rock
on bottom side of the creek shows
that bed rock cannot be far down
now. In fact Mr. Johnson was solicited to stay a couple of days longer as by that timo he was assured
bed rock wonld be struck. In the
right hand rim the indications alio
were that bed rock waa not far off.
On reaching bed rock it is expected
that largo quantities of gold will be
found. This belief is strengthened
from tho fact that gold is being
picked up from the gravel. There
are four or five gold-bearing quartz
leads a few miles up the McOul-
lough Creek. Sir Donald A. Smith
and Mr. W. 0. VanHorne, of the
Canadian Pncitio, through their local agents, have bonded nn interest
in the claims owned by Mossrs. Tin-
line, Burnett and Ardell. They
gave a $4000 band that it thorough
test would be made of the claim in
sirkr of eight months, nnd if satisfactory the stipulated sum to be
paid for a two-tilths interest therein
was $50,000. Gold is to lie seen
freely in most of the rock taken
from the reef. Several othor quartz
ledges, equally good wero to be
found.
EXPENSIVE TO   OPERATE.
Ono great difficulty in the way of
working these lodges to advantago
is the impossibility of getting machinery into tho district nt present
ns well ns the excessive cost for
supplies. On overy pound of freight
no matter what class, packed in
from Rcvelsloko thero is toll a of 10
cents. At a small outlay a couple
of men might be employed in mend
ing and keeping the trail iree from
fallen burnt logs. Wera,this done
the cost of transportation!. wonld be
considerably lessened. At present
a pack-horse will occupy five days
in going from Revelstoke to the
Bend, whereas If the trail was
properly attended to the distance
would be covered in two days. As
affairs aro now managed a puck
train has to cut its way in and out
from the Bend. Mr. Johnson is
satisfled on every representation
made to him and finds all his expectations regarding the enterprise
fully realized. In next November,
when a goneral clearing up takes
place, he expects a nice return, provided always that no heavy strike
is mado in the meantime, when bed
rock ia found. On SniftlpB creek it
was i eported tbat all thi gold had
beon taken out. On Carne's creek
threo or four claims were being
worked with poor results. On
French creek the Turtel Company
were at work on two or three claims.
Several eastern capitalists were in
the district hunting)up investnents.
The only draw back to ita becoming
a genuine El Dorado is the expense
of getting in supplies. Until this
is changed no immediate, heavy
work will be done.

&071A, Aug. 23,—Prince Ferdinand
has received telegrams from both the
sultan and the czar. The message of
tho sultan is moderate in tone but
st.tes that the prince's rBsiiniptioii ol
the Bulgarian tlir'nno was illegal and
constitutes a. breach of the Berlin
treaty. Tho czar's communication is
decidedly imperative. It declares that
Russia disapproves of Princa'Ferdinsnd
and deems it a gross violation of the.
treaty.

OIMKA   ADVICES.
Sin Francisco, Aug. 28.- Mail advices from Chins eite that 2,000 soldiers have been despatched to join
the Tartar general's forces in Hi, the
report having been made to the throne
that there wero 10,000 Russian soldiers
on tho frontier,
China papers speak at considerable
length of the proposed American-
Ohinone bank. Negotiations for establishing tho proposed bank are said
to have been conducted successfully by
Count Motiqiviz on behalf of the Philadelphia syndicate. Capital is to be
half Chinose and the management
jointly Ohinese and American. All
government loans are to be negotiated
by the bank and sll payments fer war
materials, publio works and foreign
embassies are to be made through the
bank. Papor money,.is to be issued

Yokohama advices state that a draft
of the Japanese civil code having been
compiled and printed is now being
translated into English and Frenoh.
The work must be accomplished before
the revision of the treaties can be re*
resumed.

New Yo.;*-, Aug. 28.—Tho WoiW
to-morrow will print an elaborate art*
icle on I matius Donnelly's attempt
to dethrone Shskespeare and
award tho authorship of the play to
Lord Bacon. The article is written
by Professor Davidson, the well-
known philosopher aud critic, whose
opinion carries great weight Mr,
Davidson admits that if the plays had
eome down to us without any author's
name they would|unhesitatingly bo attributed to Bacon. The article givos
in brief a summary of the result,
reached in Davidson's book soon to be
published, in whioh he shows Shake-
apearo to have boon stupid almost in
every kind of vice, to have boon a
fornicator, adulterer, usurer, oppressor
of the poor, drunkard, systematic liar,
and forger of pedigrees, dying in tho
prime of life from tho results of a
threo days' drunken spree. He next
shows wo have no record thnt Shrike-
spoaro ever owned a library or even a
book and that not a single scrap of his
manuscript has como to us and there
is nothing to show Shakespeare wts
not vety illiterate.

(lETTlNO TORTHia FROM SITTHMINT.
Berlin, Aug. Hi.—The prospect of
settlement of the Bulgarian embrogllo
is more hazy than ever. Nothing
definite is known as to Bismarck's
policy, lt is believed there || bat no
special re-approicbment with Russia is
a result of Bismarck's decrying co-opei*

JOHN   MACKAV   lN'jEBVIEWBD.
San Francisoo, Aug. 2D.—John W.
Mackay was seen at the Palace this
afternoon, Mr. Mr. Mackay hu been
the cause of ao muoh gossip recently in
connection with the wheat market here
and in Chicago that an authoritative
statement from him ia a matter of
public interest, especially in vie* of
the faot that spurious and contradictory interviews with him have been
published in the New York papers and
reproduced here. In regard to the
failure of Rosenfield & Deusbsch and
the alleged connection of tho Nevada
bank with tho wheat deal Mr. Mackay
said: " You may say from me that the
bank does not own a bushel of wheat,
lt simply loaned . money on wheat,
much of which was stored in its own
warehouse. Mr. Brandon has complete management of the batik since
the defection of Mr. Flood hu compelled him to relinquish the personal
supervision he has given to it ever
since it was founded. The great mistake made by Mr. Brandon was making
too heavy loans nn the wheat at entirely
too high a figure. I knew nothing of
these loans until I reached New York,
you oan say that whatever may be
the losses on this wheat, snd it will
take months to settle what these losses
will amount to as cargoes ore now on
their way to Liverpool, the Nevada
bank, which is equivalent to Flood and
myself, will stand them. There hu
been bad business management shown,
but that the hank hu been a party to
this wheat speculation is false. To
prove, this statement I am willing to
submit my personal accounts and books
of the bonk to any competent expert
in San Francisco who may be selected,
if he finds any single item connecting
me or the bank with a single purchase
of wheat, then I shall be willing to put
any sum that may agreed on, and what
is more then this, I am willing that
Rosenfield dt Deusbsoh should be put
on the stand to-morrow and questioned
in regard to their connection with the
bank. They will swear as I would on
my oath, that the bank merely loaned
this money to them and hat absolutely
no interest in the wheat deal.

I am sure it is not too much to uk
that proper provision be made for preventing cattle trampling over the

which made suoh a dashing appearance on Saturday.       A SumuEB.

The Fishery Bonus.
Our vory excellent ootemporary
of the Vancouver Herald accuses
the Columbus of professing ignorance of the reason for giving a honus
to tho Canadian fishermen on the
Atlantic coast, and in proof proceeds
to quote an extract from the Toronto Mail which we republished some
days. Our cotemporary surely does
not intend to hold us responsible
for whatever the Mail thinks proper
to say, and the extract which we
published was explicitly credited to
the Toronto, paper. But we confess
ignorance of any cause which would
be sufficient to justify the granting
of a bonus to the fishermen of the
east while the same advantage is
denied to those of the west, The
Operations of the fishery clauses of
the Washington treaty hamper the
fishermen of the west with respect
to the duties on fish, and our Vancouver cotemporary has not been
able to present any facts or arguments which seem lo us worthy of
consideration in support of the discrimination that has been made in
the disbursement of the fishery
award. The other matters relating
to the unequal distribution of patronage by the Dominion government
our cotemporary discreetly avoids.
They were of greater importance
than the fishery bonus.
Clunge or Tone.
There is a very decided change
in the attitude of some of our provincial newspapers towards the question of disallowance. Not many
months ago the Columbian was the
only journal which came out squarely against the position assumed by
the government that the agreement
with the 0. P. R. made it necessary
to disallow all railway charters west
of Ontario running to the U. S.
boundary except those going in o
westerly direction. We contended
that the application of this veto
power was never intended to be applied to the provinces of British
Columbia and Manitoba, which were
organized under provincial governments when the charter was issued.
The British North America act expressly gives provincial governments
the power to charter railways, and
that power cannot be taken away
arbitrarily by the Dominion government. This view was combatted by
the Guardian, and the principle involved in it met with a hostile
reception by at least a portion of
the Victoria press. Now we find
our local cotemporary publishing
oolumns of extracts in which the
same views are put forward, and the
Colonist gives the greatest prominence to everything of a like char
ncter it can find. While we cordially aeeept whatever aid these
journals may supply towards a proper apprehension of the true situation, we are sorry to be unable to
give them credit for disinterestedness in their change of front. The
Guardian's implacable hostility towards the 0. P. H. and all its belongings is well understood to spring
from considerations of self interest
The Colonist never saw the wickedness of the disallowance policy until the transpacific steamers refused
to call at Victoria on the inward
trip. It is no secret that the people of Victoria were opposed to the
construction of the Westminster
Southern Railway, and the principle
from which this opposition sprang
was the same that inspired the
Cobnitt to make it appear that the
Canadian Pacific Railway ought to
be treated as a public enemy. Nearly
all the traffic that comes to the
mainland by steamer is now forced
to pass through Victoria, but when
the railway system of the coast has
been completed muoh of it will come
by land, and from this traffic Victoria will receive no advantage. For
this reason the people of Victoria
were anxious to prevent the completion of the railway system. As
Boon as it was ascertained that the
China steamers would not call at
Victoria, but intended to proceed
directly to the mainland, the Colonist proposed to boycott not only the
steamers but the railway, and called
upon its reat' s to hinder the operations of the company. It is in pursuit of this purely selfish policy
that our Viotoria ootemporary now
gives aid and comfort to the people
of Manitoba who are endeavoring
to construct a line that will come
.into competition with the 0. P. E.
It makes a groat deal of difference
whose ox is gored, The Manitoba
road may to some extent lessen the
profits of the Canadian transcontinental line, but the Westminster
Southern will have no suoh result,
(or it will add to, instead of diminishing, tha amount of business that
will oome to us.

THB BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased by n
joint stock company composed of citizens
ef New Westminster, to bo known as thu
" British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has been for
nearly a year owned and controlled hy
tlie British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Now Westminster,
Viotoria and Vancouver. The object of
tho now oompany is to continue tlie pub.
lication of the British Columman newspaper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirely by
those whoso individual interest It will he
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland, There will he no
Blackening of tlte enorgy hitherto displayed In tbe management of tho establishment, and iti patrons may rely upon
receiving fall value for their monoy,
The Columbian will oontinue to be entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to tho advancement of snch schemes as
may bo considered in the public interest,
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the hook and
stationery establishment in this oity
having been taken ovor by Mr. T. It,
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
In his own name and for Ids own benefit.
It la desirable that a daily newspaper
■hould be maintained in this city, and
tht new oompany asks for public patronage on tho ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publlo welfare. 'It asks that the Columbian be judged on its own merits and
supported only so long aa Its policy is
enconalstt with its professions. In con-
■equcllco of this buitnesi change all accounts due tho concern must be settled
without delay so that the books of tho
former oompany may be adjusted and
closed. Address alt communications and
remittances to

'Thoro aro many grades of prison life
in Siberia. The lowest sentence is to
simple banishment for threo years, and
tho hardest to hard labor for life. Tho
simple exile without imprisonment is appointed to live in a certain town, district
or province, and must report to the police
at stated intervals. Ho may enjrajjo in
certain specified occupations, or rather in
any occupation which is not on a prohibited list; for example, he may teach
music or painting, but may not teach
languages, as they afi'ord the opportunity
for proposing revolutionary ideas. He
may become a merchant, farmer, mechanic, contractor, or anything else of
that sort and it nut infrequently happens
that exiles enjoy a degree ofiprosponty in
th ar new h j'mos that they did not have
in ISuropoan Russia,
Kxiles and their sons havo becomo
millionaires iu .Siberia; aformer Vanderbilt of liikmilsk, llie capital of eastern
Siberia, was the so:) of an exile serf, his
(mormons fortune having beon gained iu
tho overland lea trade. Many exiles be-
c uno KO attached to Siberia that they re-
in-.dn thero after their term of bimish-
iiitmtis ended, but it should be undor-
stood that their wises are the exception
nitbor than the rule. The wife ami immature children of an exile may follow
or accompany him at the expense of the
government, but cannot return to Kurope
until his term of service bus expired.
Tii.! object of exile is to furnish a population to this sparely inhabited region,
mil it goes without saying tbat a family
munis much more likely to be a good
cillMn-whenhiB wifo and children are
witii him than when they aru thousands
of miles away. The obnoxious name of
"prisoner" or "exile" is never applied to
the banished individuals; iu the language
of tlie people they are called "tmforLun-
atos," and in official documents they are
termed "involuntary emigrants."
Of thoso sentenced to forced labor,
somo aro ordered to becomo colonists;
tlryaro turnished with tools and mat-rials for building a house on a plot of
[jjroun 1 allotted to them aud for three
years can receive rations from tho nearest
government station; but when tho three
,v;';irs hive expired they are expected to
• tt;ioo:*t tlu'nis.ilves. If they were sent
:-l■> til • southern aud western fertile parts
o'sSibjria , there lot would not be a se-
, ,'iv on ', but the most of these colonists
a.') assigned to the northern regions,
fcvherj the support of life from tilling tho
'; <il o;' from hunting and fishing is a mat-
,ter of great diiliculty. Thoso who are
iU; '|it in prison .and sentenced to hard
labor are #iployed In uiiucs, mills,
touudriea or ou the public roads; many
-if them wear eh linn which extend from
li girdle ai'ouid thj waist to each ankle,
ran! efiVtually preclude the possibility
,i running away. Their life is a hard
'in.1,* as their food is coarse and often
limited in quantity; it is bnd enough
' ,u lor kin l-h.-arted overseers and super-
ntendontd, and terrible where the mas-
liu m'o cruel, which happens altogether
oo often. In tha timo of the lir.-a
Vlexa ider and the Emperor Nicholas,
he treatment of the prisoners in Siberia
i-tts more severe than at presont, but
ijvcn to-day there is groat opportunity for
< melioration.

A Kciii^i! ior I'riiiiJniilN,
In the island of Formosa nature herself
hns formed a fortified home for bloodthirsty criminals. Formosa is an island
about ninety miles off the coast of China,
from which* co un try it is separated by the
channel of Folken. It was unknown to
tho Chinese until the year 1-103, and in
11134 the Dutch established a settlement
thore, but after twenty-eight years of
peaceful residence they were expelled by
the famous rebol Coxinga, whose successors ruled the island until 1*183, when the
Chinese took" full possession. Then the
population wns from two to three million ;
now it has dwindled down to a little more
than ono hundred and ninety thousand.
Although only two hundred and fifty
miles long and eighty miles in breadth,
nothing is known—by civilized beings—
of tho interior portion, for it is inclosed by
nn enormous volcanic range, and it is
within this that nil the aborigines now
herd together. Theso natives havo a
slender fdrm, olive complexion and long
hair, and thoy blacken their teeth. They
have no written language, ond theiV
religion is confined to a superatitous belief In demons and sorcerers.
It is no wonder then that thoy are
easily govemerned by somo of the more
advanced descendants of the rebel
Coxinga, many of whom havo taken up
tticirubode with them, and a wild nml
desperato life they lead. They take advantage of tho asylum offered by this belt
of country to make organized expeditions
therefrom for purposes of pi.higpj nud
even go so far as to arrange defensive
operations against tho dwellers on the
Beiicoast m a pretext jbr .tho levying
money. More than one thousand cases
of murder arc committed by these people
every year, and tho Chinese authorities
aro completely set at defiance.
The mountainous and wild nature of
the tract of country, and the large numbers
to bo dealt with preclude all success of
the Chinese soldiers against them. The
brigands know overy loophole, and can
get outside, whereas the others nre unable
to find their way in. The policy of tlie
present governor of Formosa seems to
be to draw all tho natives outside and
away from their associates. This plan
hns partly succeeded, but there are still
at least one hundred thousand natives
leagued with brigands, and nature's lufly
volcanic walls still remain a fortress impossible to storm, but easily held by these
red-handed desperadoes.

Emperor William** Wilt,
In tho Porzellun Sammlung, a groat
cabinet of china, in the Royal Palace oi
Dresden, a collection consisting of no
fewer than (ill.Oil;) pieces of pottery, thore
aro three plain vellow plates, two oithem
entire, tho third broken. Theso uro considered tu bo, as spec!mens,of the ceramic
artjroven moru.eurious and moro precious
than any ether articles in tlio porcelain
galleries* not excluding even the two
earthenware life-siz.; leopards, tho colos-
sul bust of Augustus tlio King, the majolica ware painted from tlie designs of
Itafaelle, and the set of porcelain given to
tho Kleetor Augustus II, hy Frederic I.
of Prussia, in exchange for a companv of
very tall grenadier.-s. The throw yellow
plates are of direct, Chinese manufacture,
and are esteemed tlie greatest rarity in
tlie collection, for the reason that this
class of ware is made for the use of tho
Kinperor of China alone, and its exportation is prohibited under pain of death.
How theso plates fired with tlto Imperial
color tyellow;) found their way to Dresden
is uncurtain, bub for considerably more
I hau a century they have served as models
used atthe royal porcelain manufactory,
for the production of a special species of
porcelain only made for presentation to
royal personages.. ''Dresden yellow" is
thus as historical a hue as "rose du Barrl"

ordered a service of this famous yellow
ware to be made ns a congratulatory offering to her Majesty the Queen of Khglaml

Our cotemporary of the Viotoria
fimu shows wonderful enterprise in
giving its readers a report of the ceremonies whioh took place in this eity
last Saturday evening. The report
filled a column and a quarter and op-
peared in the Timet of Saturday evening. But it was evidently written almost
wholly before the event from the
printed programme and, therefore,
contains many inaccuracies.
Worms derange the whole system.
Mother OraTea'Worm Exterminator deranges worms, and glvsa Wrt to the snf.
fern, tt only oosts twenty-live cents to
try it and be convinced.
Expehsivb Oeow.—The Free Press
tolls us that when the Hon. Mr. M
*.iollan, poBtmaster-general, was :
Nanaimo, his son went out shooting
nnd returned to tho hotel with a partridge. Tho oity constable sumiuontr -
him beforo the magistrate for killing
game out of season. Tho young man
acknowledged that he had killed the
bird, but said he supjioaod it to bo a
crow! After contributing $13 to the
funds of the court he was allowed to
go. When Postmaster McLellan returns to Ottawa he had better post
Mastor MoLollan junior a bit on natural history.

Orikotal Entertainments.—Thero
was a fairly good .audience present in
the Prill Shed on Saturday night to
hear the lecture of Dr. VV ad-el-Ward
on the Comicalities and Realities of
Oriental Life. Tholecturo contained
much information respecting the
practices and customs of the oast, and
threw a good deal of light upon various incidents related in the biblo. Tonight the doctor will deliver his second locturo, "A Trip in Disguiso with
the Mohammedans to Mecca." Ho is
ably assisted by his wife Robokah,
whose personifications of eastern costumes are most interesting.
 » . ..	
Readjustment or ths Mails.—The
people of Nanaimo presented an address to Ihe postmsster-genersl asking
for a better mail service between their
eity and Vancouver. Tho minister
admitted that the present arrangements wero quite unsatisfactory, and
stated that when he returned to Ottawa
he would re-adjust the mail service of
the province. We hope that, whatever
re-adjustment takes place, tho direct
mail between this city and Nanaimo
will not be disturbed. Nanaimo obtains a considerable quantity of produce and supplies from Ladners, and
this is now carried by the Nanaimo
mail steamer.

Gas Mbetisc— A meeting of the
Westminster Gas Co. was held on Saturday afternoon at tho office of Rand
Bros. There was a good attendance
of directors and stockholders, lt was
resolved that when the number of
customers has reached 150 the price
of gas would be reduced to $3 per
thousand. It was also decided that
whenever there was sufficient demand
for the electric light it would be furnished bjr tho company. The charge
made against Mr. Rind, the company's
secretary, by the vintnrcs was not
sustainod, and Mr. Rand was honorably exonerated from blame by tho
meeting. Several other matters woro
disposed of.
Artesian Well.—Mr. E. E. Bind
informs us thst a gentleman who has
had great experience in boring wells
will shortly arrive from tho east with
a view to boring somo artesian wells in
this province. If sufficient encouragement is offered, one of these wells will
be sunk at this city." The object r'
the enterprise is to determine t' ;
'Iraracter of the Btrata underlying tl
alluvial deposits and ascertain wheth,
natural gas, coal, coal oil, or any other
valuable mineral exists. It is propose!
to go down 2,000 foot if necessary.
We hope our enterprising citizens will
aid this important enterpise, as the results msy be of vast importance to the
interests of the city.
The Selfish City.—Victoria is
bound that she shall be recognized.
People who receive telegrams will have
noticed on tho O.P.R. blanks a small
cut of the North American continent
in which the company's telegraph line
from Montreal to Vancouver and
thence to San Franoisco is delineated.
Viotoria does not appear in this cut,
neither do Chicago and many other
large oities. Probably not one man in
a thousand would notice the cut, much
less give it a sufficient critical examination to decipher what cities wore denoted. However, Victoria's eagle eye
lighted on it, her board of trade took
it up and straightway suoh a howl
went up that the company, to appease
her, telegraphed the head offices at
Montreal for a new supply of blanks
on which Viotoria should be designated
in pica blaok face typo. Consequently
Andy Reid, the general stationery
agent of the oompany has for the past
week been employed boxing up and
■hipping back tn Montreal the objectionable blanks.—Com.

Rev, J, MoLaurln, Canadian Baptist
Missionary to India, writes: "During
our stay in Canada, we have used Dr.
Thomas1 Eclectric Oil with very groat
satisfaction. We are now returning to
India, and wonld like very much to take
some with us, for our own use and to
give to the diseased heathen."
Saturday is a day long to bo remembered by the Masons and Oddfellows
of British Columbia, and especially by
the people of tho royal city. Nothing could more surely indicate the
confidence that is folt by our own oil'
zens in tho future prosperity of oi
city than the ovont which brought together such u large gathering of the
fraternities nn Saturday. 'Tho built"*-
ing nf which the corner stnnes woro
thon laid ia tn be ono uf tho largest
and most substantial in British Columbia, aud tho erection of it, together
with tho cost nf the lot, will involve
an investment of ovor $40,000. Tho
coromony brought together ovor 200
Masons and Oddfellows from various
parts of the provinco, representative-)
truing present from Victoria, Nanaimo,
Wellington, Vancouver, Moodyvillo,
Port Moody, Kamloops, Chilliwhack,
and elsewhere. Besides members of
the two s'joioties there were many
other visitors from a distance. Shortly
after 3 o'clock the brethren formed a
procession, and marched down Columbia st. to the music of the band. The
procession looked exceedingly well,
tho officers woaring their rich and
handsome regalia and jewels, and
ull members having on the habiliments
peculiar to these orders. At 3:30 the
procession reached the place where
THE cbkemony
was to take place. Most Worshipful
Grand Master A. 11. Milne, ,of Victoria, was assisted by R. W. Bro. J.
S. Clute, D. G. M.1 M. W. Bro. M.
W. Woitt, Acting S. O. W.; R. W.
Bro. H. Hoy, J. G. W.s V.' W. Bro.

Trcoa.j R. W. Bro. E. C. Neufelder,
G. S.; Bro. W. H. Trickey, G. T. |
and other officers of the grand and
subordinate lodges. The ceremonies
woro very elaborate and imposing, aud
were according to the ritual usually
observed on suoh occasions. Tho stone
wus a inagnilicient block of British
Columbia granite. In tho cavity wore
placod the usual Masonio scroll, copies
of tho constitutions and by-laws of
the lodges, names of grand officers,
current postage stamps, bank notes
from the Bank of British Columbia
and Bank of British North America,
gold and silver coins, copies of the
Daily Couimiian ond tlie Guardian,
lithographic view of tlie city, oto.
These having been deposited, tho stooe
was lowered with grand honors. It
was then laid and .pronounced complete. Corn, wine and oil wero poured
upon it ob emblems of plenty, gladness and peace. Having completed
tho subsequent formalities, the Masons
thon surrounded
Tl'G ODDFELLOWS
at the other corner of the building
wheto they protebb'ed'to lay thoir corner stone with ceremonies equally impressive and fitting. These wore performed by Bro. Joshua Davies, Grand
Master of the Grand Lodge, 1. O. O.
R, assisted by Bro. J. II. Melgand
D. G. M.j Bro. Fred. Davey, G. S.;
Bro. W. Walker, G. T.J Bro. W. W.
Evans. G„Chnp.: Bros. Roberts, Came.
McColl, and Whiles, P.'G.M.'si and
others. In thr cavity of this ston
wero deposited tho parchment scroll,
names of grand officers, constitution
and by-laws, names of city and provincial officers, oopies uf tho locrr!
newspapers and tho Oddfellow for Kith
August, current postage stamps, coins,
etc. When tlie stone had been lowered and adjusted and the ceremony
concluded, the procession was reformed
nnd tho brethren returned lo their
respective lodge rooms. Both the
Masonic and Oddfellows grand masters
wore presented, before laying the
stones, with handsome silver trowels
with inscriptions appropriate to the
occasion. At 8 o'olock tho visiting
brethren were entertained
AT 8UFPER
by tho local lodges. A magnificent
spread was laid in the Skating Rink
by Mr. Luhe Pither, of the Colonial
Hotel. There were three tables sot,
one for the grand officers of tho two
societies, one for tho Masonic brethren, and ono tor tho Oddfellows.
Grand Masters A. W. Milne and
Joshua Davios presided, and thero
wero 112 brethren present. Aftor the
cloth had been removed, nnd tho usual
loyal and patriotic toasts had been disposed uf, a number of special toasts
woro givon and olicited appropriate
responses. Tho principal speakers
woro tho two grand masters and
Messrs. J. S. Cluto, collector of customs; W. N. Bolo, Q. C, M. P. P.;
Jos. Orr, M. P. P.; and W. A. Duncan. The proceedings were varied by
several songs, some of which wero
capitally rendered, and altogether the
occasion was n most enjoyable one. It
was stated that this iB tlie first occasion
un which Masons and Oddfellows have
joined together either at the ceremony
of laying a corner stone ur ut a banquet, and the fact is vory significant.
There is no good reason why these two
societies should nut bocome mutually
helpful. __________

Boston, Aug. 29.—Jawe Poinery,
ohild torturer and murderer, serving
life sentence in Clinrleston state prison,
made a second deBperate attempt to

also the heavy bars in the grating ovor
the window which opens into thu prison yard. When searched ho wpb found
tu have 2 steel saws and a qumuiiy of
gelatitie, whioh ho used to cover up his
wort. A few dpys more mid he would"
have sawed anoc'ier b.ir on i'le outside
of the window and gained lvsireedom.
Fernery is believed to have been given
his outfit and otherwise assisted by his
mother.
