In China when a bank suspends
on tlm Shaokamaxon principle thuy
hn mediately suspend the cashier and
fire the directors—the former from
a tree, the latter from a mortar
against a brick wall. The lust bank
suspension in China took plane in
tho sixteenth year of the Emperor
Min of the Ting dynasty (li. 0.
m\).-PhiMclph'm Record,
Tlio Canadians are Justly proud
of the exploits of their troops in
tho suppression of the rebellion iu
the North-west, iind are now receiving them buck at Toronto and
other places in Ontario and Quebec
with lavish welcome. It wus tiie
lirst. time the Dominion had a
chance to try tin* mottle of its array,-
and tho latter stood the ordeal in
fine shape.—Detroit N.evoa.
Mr. Gladstone's conduct is governed by impulses of which it is impossible to forecast either the direction or thc effect. This only it is
possible to affirm with certainty—
he has closed a chapter of history
written throughout with his own
hand; and the record embraces uot
only tho vast constitutional roforms
with which his name will be identified, but more questionable and complicated transactions ou which the
judgment of a grent body of his
country is not favorable.—London
Truth,
The Week, of Toronto, declares
"the labor vote is at the bottom of
race legislation against tho Ohinese."
Our esteemed contemporary bus the
truth in a nutshell, But when an
idea (such ns love, for Cliiucee) has
proved its inoxpedien'oy, why not
abandon it 'I The Chinese and the
Americans cannot live here together.
Better by far a modus vivendi with
the Indians. Whipple, we believe,
hns snid that in past times War was
business, but now business is war.
Why-not arouso tho faculties tb the
maroh of events ? Two trains are
likely to meet ou ono track, Both
have a right to the track; but will
that fact help them any in passing
each other! The hoodlum put the
thing right when ho said "Tlie Ohinese must go." It was tho American epigram of the contufry. —Chicago Current,
On the whole, tliis ministry which
is to rule England for six months
will itself bo ruled by two men,
Lord Salisbury and Bowl Randolph
Churchill. If they agree, well and
good, If they differ, ministry and
party together are likely to be rent
in twain. It is not necessary to
believe all the stories of their relations now current. But the mere
fact that they are current is significant. Iu all of them Lord Randolph figures as the dictator; Lord
Salisbury acquiesces in the imperious demands of his young lieutenant. The latest of them has to do
with an appointment, ■■' There is an
ablo man at the India office—Mr.
Moore—whose merits became known
to Lord Salisbury when he held that
great post. On becoming prime
minister ho chose Mr. Moore, to be
his private secretary. Presently
Lord Randolph sent his chief word
that Mr. Moore belonged to his department, and that lio could not
spare him; and, in fact, Mr. Moore
becomes private secretary to "Lord
Randolph Churchill, and not to
Lord Salisbury. 80 much U true.
Already wo hear predictions that
Lord Randolph will brenk up this
ministry. That he will be disagreeable if he does not liavo his way is
pretty certain. Whatever happens,
it will be interesting to see how the
pair pull together iu harness.—
Smalley in N. 1\ Tribune.

millions against* 17 millions now.
To nil appearances the controlling
race qf the world will be that wliich
has developed and is still developing
from tho British germ. Three centuries ago ihere was every proba-,
bility that 'the Spanish race would
have this position. Spain's powor
was greatest among nations and her
conquests extended throughout the
globe. But she lacked tho materials
of permanent growth and strength,
and her vitality was sapped by
principles which Had been developed
liy long contests with tho Moors aud
other alien races on her owu soil.
Yet three centuries ago thero was
far more promise that the Spanish
would come near being tho universal
language timu thejv is now that the
English language fifil! gain tl&it jfce-
emi neiice.—Oriujonmn.
According to William Gifl'eu, English statistician, the population of
Europe lias increased iu a hundred
years from 145 millions to 350 millions, or, if the people of European
races settled out of Europe be added,
to 420 millions. According to his
computation the English race has
multiplied five fold, tho Russian
four fold, the Gorman two and a
half fold, and the other races of
Europo in a smaller proportion,
Italy having nearly doubled,-and
Franco and Spain having added only
about ,r)0 per cent, to their population iu 100 years. Mr. Gifleu judges
that in another century there will
be nearly 800 millions of the British
race (with the German blend) iu tho
world; while tho Russian race, apart
from conquest, will not exceed 300
millions, aud the others, increasing
moro slowly still, will lag far behind. France, a century henre, he
thinks, may have 42 millions against
'Mil  niillli<ms now, nnd Spain  22
Big Bend Mining; District.
The following particulars of thu recant discoveries in the Big Bend country are from a correspondent to the
Portland Oregonian; The moat important of the discoveries ia that made
by Thomas Barret, deputy mining recorder of thu district, his partner,
James Bell, and two others. The
party started from Far well in May last
to proceed to tho Big Bond country.
Reaching McCulloch creek, a important point intimately associated, as
many old miners may remember, with
the great gold excitement of '65, they
prospected up the creek, and on the
10th of June discovered two quartz
ledges both currying freo gold in lnrge
quantities. The westerly ledge wns
traced across in uno direction about
1,500 feet, while the easterly one was
observed for 3,000 feot. Shafts were
sunk, and tiio prospectors claim that
iu the former a ledge two feet wide,
md iu the latter a foot wide, was (Iii
Severed. Both tho ledges contain
large quantities of free gold visible to
the naked eye, and from tho numerous specimens brought down the opinion may be warranted that u very rich
strike has been made. Owing to ths
heavy snow still lying on the mountains, to the high state of the Columbia, and to the .inefficiency of their
outfit, the men' having staked uut
thoir claims returned to Fnrwell. They
hnve since, though largoly uugiuentad
in numbers, gono back to McCulloch
creek. Barret says thnt when they
Wt on Juno 22d, the snow lay still so
deep thnt they were unable to complete their examination of the ledge,
but thero seems to be overy prospect
that it follows the crook for quite a
distance. Mr. Gruw, another experienced prospector, has since discovered
nbout half a mile from tho Barret
chum a ledge Bhowiug visible gold,
and nlso a galena lodge which looks
remarkably well. Tliere are now
nearly a hundred men prospecting in
the Gold Creek district, and steps are
being taken to open up a trail, which
competent authorities uver, can be put
through for a trifling sum.
The brothers Kaufman and Sam
Martin claim to have discovered n rich
galena ledge four feet in thickness,
right adjoining the truck of tho Canadian Pacific Railroad a few miles frcm
Fnrwell. The ore is low grade, about
75 per ceut. lend, and 20 silver, but
it is remarkably free from alloy, and
considering tho position of the ledge
it can probably be worked with very
paying results, providing the ledge ib
sufficiently extensive.-— Times,

Scene In the Commons.
An Ottnwa despatch snys: Shortly
after the Houso reassembled at 8
o'clock last night a tall, handsome-
woman, wearing a black satin dress,
hurried past the doorkeeper on duty
at tlio entrance to thu oastern corridor,
nnd walked quickly to the door uf the
commons' chamber, facini; the speaker's chair, or what is known as the
main entrance. Ere Doorkeeper Harris could interpose to prevent her further progress, the woman, throwing
nside tho baino-covered door within,
stood on tlio Huor of the Iioubo. She
made a quick motion ns if to go further, but tbe door-keeper, who had by
this time recovered his wits, bolted
after the intruder aud stepping on the
long train of her dross brought her to
a standstill, A sharp strugglo ensued
and finding herself overpowered, she
shrieked out, "Sir John Macdonald
killed my husband. Let mo go! lot
me go I" By this time sho wus pushed
buck into tlio corridor, and here it became evident that the woman was suf-
fertim from hyatoria. Her shrieks as
sho was led down tbe main corridors
rang along tho halls nnd echoed sharply through the commons' chamber,
whero tho startled legislators for the
moment forgot the business boforo ttie
house and wondered what it all meant.
"They've killed my poor Albert. Givo
mo back my husband." sho wniled
piteouily, ns she wus taken away, and
in one of tho adjacent committee
rooms a small knot of compassionate
members \ And attendants gathered
around the now pacified woman, and
soon all indications of violence ceased.
She became gradually moro composed,
and was driven to ner lodgings in a
covered carriage,
Some time in 1880 an accident occurred on the Prince Edward Island
Railway, aud among the passengers on
the wreckod train waa Oapt. Albert
Mclnnes. Shortly after Mclnnes died
and his widow, an English lady by
birth, entered an action against the
government for 810,000. Iu the session of 1883 the sum of $2,500 was
givon her, and in the following spring
■he sailed for England. Sinco her return she has frequently visited tho
capital,'and during the present session
has been several times iu the Parliament building. It is supposed that in
a fit of nervous exdtoinentarising fmin
the death of her husband, who loft her
in a rather unprotected condition, ahe
oame to the houso last evoning and,
eluding tho door-koopera, rushed into
tlio commons' chamber ns stated. Tho
affair caused no little commotion in
the house. Mrs, Mclnnes is a pretty
woman, of good address und dresses
elegantly.

Saturday Morning, August l, 1883.
Referring to the liberal treatment
of Ireland by the late British administration and its successor, Har-
per's Weekly pertinently remarks:
"It is certainly a gootl sign in England or in America when the contest of party is to win public support by providing tlie best government" In this sentiment we
heartily concur, and we may express
a wish tliat such a contest may become more and more vigorous.
If it bo true thnt Russia has
taken possession of Zulftcai* Pass,
as reported, the strained relations
between Britain and that country
arc such tlmt a positive declaration
of hostilities itt any moment would
not bo a matter of much surprise.
But it is stated thut although tho
Salisbury government bus known of
this new aggressive move on the
part of Russia for two weeks, no
action has been tuken! Ts it possible that the party so shocked at
Gladstone's cowardice is itself more
guilty of inaction than ovor Gladstone was!
Pari) Tactics.
In these days of party Strife
every action of a government is apt
to be construed iuto a party act.
It is not a matter of much surprise,
therefore, to find that the rejection
of the despatch boat Dolphin, mentioned lately in tliose columns, has
been so construed. The Republicans, or many of them, claim that
the object of the severe tests and
ultimate rejection of this vessel is
to saddle the previous administration with incompetence und wastefulness of public funds. This is
denied, of course by the Democrats,
and tlie Dolphin affair is put forward ns proof of the honesty and
good intentions of the new cabinet.
Wliatover may be the cause, there
are a few pnteut facts conspicuously
visible. The Dolphin is not it lit
boat for tlie service she was intended to perform. If she has been
constructed and equipped according
to specifications, these specifications
must have been very incomplete,
and for this the government of
President Arthur is responsible If
the Dolphin hns not been built
according to contract, tho present
administration could not accept her
without failing in its duty. The
onus chiefly lies at the door of the
Republican pnrty, and the only
charge that can be mnintained
against the present administration
is that it refuses to accept a bad
piece of work thnt has in all respects filled the requirements of
very badly prepared specifications.
There is .not much comfort to the
Republicans in that view either.
The Late Collision.
It is stated that an investigation
will be mado by the authorities into the cause of the late disaster
whieh came so near costing mnny
valuable lives. It is to be hoped
the enquiry may be thorough, and
that adequate punishment may be
imposed if it should be found that
the collision was the result of carelessness. Persons ontrusted with
the lives of passengers cannot be
careless without being criminal. A
very slight error in judgment, or a
neglect whicli under ordinary circumstances would be frivolous, mny
result iu n terrible catastrophe, ft
is beyond comprehension how a collision could take place under such
circumstances as surrounded tiie
sinking of the steamer Enterprise
unless thoro was gross carelessness or
stupidity. The two steamers were
clearly visible to each othor loug
before they came together; there
was neither mist nor smoko to interfere with the vision; the channel was unobstructed and wide; the
water was perfectly calm; and it
was almost iu the middle of the
day. And yet, under theso most
favorable circumstances, we find
two steamers belonging to tho same
line coming into collision, and one
of them sunk. It is bolioved that
if the Rithet had changed Iter
courso when tlie Enterprise was
crossing hor bows, they would probably have struck ench other iu such
a way that both would have been
sunk. In that enso tho loss of
life might have boen appalling. It
is not our business uow to point out
whieh steamer wan at fault: that
matter belongs to those who make
the official enquiry, But it is in
the public interest that such an investigation should leavo in the pub-
He mind no suspicion that all the
foots within reach have not been
brought out. It is a matter of
common rumor that somo of the
steamers plying in thoso waters aro
not any stronger or better equipped
than they ought to be; and the
accident which has just occurred.
although not traceable to any lack
of strength or equipment in eithor
of tho steamers, may awaken the
public and tho officials to the duty
of moro thorough inspection of
hulls, machinery and equipments.
We believe Mr. Vigor lias done a
great deal towards improving tho
condition and increasing the safety
of vessels plying in our provincial
waters, but possibly there may still
be room for improvement. If public rumor is not greatly astray,
there is room.
Last of the Idaho.
A telegram from the 0. R. k N.
Co. \^as received on Thursday morning stating that after this weok the
str. Idaho would bo withdrawn
from this route. We need not say
that this intelligence was received
in tho city with a great deal of surprise and regret. For over a year
the Idaho hns been running regularly once a weok from the Northern Pacific Railway terminus to
this city, and this routo has proved
a very grout convenience to business
men. Sometimes the quantity of
freight she brought to the city was
small, and there were never many
passengers; but ninny passengers
could not bo expected on a steamer
which made only weekly trips, and
it was generally believed that, with
tlie traffic gathered up nntl distributed at way places, the Idaho was
doing a paying business, We do
not know the ground upon whicli it
is now proposed to take her off' tho
route, but presume that it is tlio
plea of economy. Tlio same corn-
puny controls the traffic between
Tacoma and Victoria, and it may
have occurred to tho managers that
if freight for the mainland was not
carried by the Idaho to this city it
would at least go by the company's
other steamers as far ns Victoria.
Corporations are proverbially soulless, and tho 0. R. k N. Co. does
not care, perhaps, how freight gets
hero, or how much it costs, if the
interests of the company are served.
Possibly this reasoning may turn
out to ho unsound. Past history
shows that the peoplo of Now Westminster will stand a good deal, but
there must be u limit even to thoir
patience. It may happen that the
importations over the Northern
Pacific Railway will even be affected by tlie want of a direct steamer
between this city aud Tncomn.
Every one knows well enough that
goods brought round by Victoria
from Tacoma will cost a great deal
more than they have been costing
by the Idaho, and if tho mainland
merchants do not get relief from
these burdensome imposts, thoy will
certainly seek other channels than
these through which to obtain their
merchandise. In any event * tho
timo is not now fnr off when our
goods will come over the C. P. R.,
and steamboat connection with
Tacoma direct will not bo a matter
of such importance. But the people ot this city should not permit
thc Idaho to be taken off the route
without using overy legitimate influence to induce her to remain.
She has already saved the city
thousands of dollars in freight
charges. If thc rate she has been
collecting is too low, let hor increase it, and let another effort bo
made to obtain n mnil subsidy for
this important route. Why should
every subsidised foreign mail .service be made to terminate at Victoria! Lot tho Board of Trade at
once consult respecting the best
means of maintaining our steam
sorvice with tho sound, and let us
not abandon the conspicuous advantages of tho present sorvice. Wo
havo the assurance of some of our
most prominent morchants thut
stops will be taken at once to secure
sorvice from Tacoma to this city,
and it is believed tho withdrawal of
the Idaho will only be temporary.

Indian Hop-Pickehh.*** The Purl
Townsend Arauitsays that a deputation
of Indians arrived ou Saturday hi(.rn
ing from Olyquot, weat coast of this
island with Sedakauim, head chief,
and Artlyn, his son. Thoy called un
Judge Swan, who kindly explained to
them that the hop pickers will nol ru
ceive as much pay as formerly, as the
prico of hops is so low that hop-growers
cannot afford to pay big prices. Nearly
two thousand Indiana hnve already arrived at the hop fields, and more are
going from the norlh and from Capo
Flattery. It is probable that from
five to six thousnnd Indians will go
from the tribes of British Oolumbia,
hut most of whom will return home
after they have found out the low
prices of hops.
, A Runaway Scow.—Somo timo ago
an item appeared iu Thk Columbian
relating to a scow which had been conveyed from Port Moody to Granville
under singular circumstances. The
case went into court and was ventilated tho other day at Purt Moody. Capt.
Taylor aud Mr. Geo. Butchart, J. Ps.,
occupied the bonch. Col. P. S. Hamilton appeared as counsel for the plaintiff, and Mr. G. E. Corbould (Corbould
-St MoColl) of-this eity, defended. The
history of the case is as follows: Mr.
Williams, of Putt Moody, undertook
tu build a house for Capt. Clarke, and
associated Mr. Spring with him in the
contract. As part payment for thework
Capt. Clarke conveyed to Williams and
Spring jointly a scow with a house
thereon that was lying at Port Moody.
Spring made aome repairs to tho floating rosidonco and lived in it, but it
seems that Williams was not able to
derivo any advantage at all from it.
He, therefore, conveyed his half interest to Noon upon the understanding
jhat if Noon made anything out of it
he waa to divide up. Noon pressed
Spring for a settlement, whereupon
the latter shoved tho scow adrift aud
jjpuk it down to Granville. Then,Noon.
nad Spring arrested for larceny atu>"it
Was on tins charge he appeared before
the Port Moody magistrates. After
hearing tho case patiently thn court
decided that iih Spring wub joint owner
of thu scow, nud had been in quiet
possession as such, the charge of larceny could not He. The caso was dismissed.
Gratifying Progress. —From the
valley uf the Frasor come must encouraging reports respecting thc condition of the crops nud the substantial
improvements that are boing carried
on. Ou both (fides uf the river the
country ia being filled up with a superior class of settlers, many of whom
are making very extensive improvements. Capt. Thomnson and his partner, who not long ago bought Capt.
Robinson's place at Burton's Prairie,
are making preparations for farming
on a largo scnle. The estate embraces
1000 acres of excellent land which
gives promise of large results, Capt.
Thompson and his family are at present
living under canvas, awaiting the
completion of a very fine residence
now in course of erection. This family
came from London, Eng,, lost year,
and considering thnt they have so
recently left the fashionable circles of
the world's metropolis, they nre adapting themselves with wonderful facility
to the conditions of pioneer hfo in
British Columbia. Mr. Vasey aud
his faintly, lately arrived from the
province of Quebec, are also making
largo preparations for farming on the
banks of Nicomeu slough. This is a
very tine family, with considerable
menus, and belongs apparently to that
class of fanners bo much needed in
British Columbia. In the settlements
at Mount Lehman and Alder Grove
there are a great many new coiners
who are laying the foundations of prosperous and happy homes, and everywhere ono may find gratifying signs uf
development.
The most deadly foe to alt malarial
diseases is Ayer's Ague Cure, a combination of vegetable ingredients only, of
which the most valuable is used iu uo
other known preparation. This remedy
is nu absolute and certain specific, and
succeeds when all other medicines fail.
A care is j warranted.

The Blthel-Knterprlse Collision
FURTHER PARTICULARS OF THE DISASTER.
At the time of going tu press last
Tuesday it, was nut possible to obtain
full particulars uf the steamboat collision. Such as could be obtained by
telegraph wore then given. Several
persons who were passengers on the
str. Rithet arrived in this oity on Wednesdny forenoon, and from these we
Slather a number of additional particu-
ars, Tlio steamers sighted eaoh other
near Ten Mile Point while thoy were
quite a diitanco from each other. The
day was clear and bright, aud the water was smooth as a lake. The steam-
era seemed to be steering such a course
as would enable them to pass at a safe
distance Aftor a While, as they approached nearer, the Rithet sounded
one whistle, which waa answered by
the Enterprise, The latter steamer,
nccording to thu testimony of persons
on board the Rithet, turned and attempted to cross the Rlthet's bows, It
was seen thnt a collision must take
placo, nnd passengers began preparing
for the event, some of thom providing
themselves with lifo preservers, The
Enterprise, finding that she oould nut
elenr tho Rithe*, turned her helm
again and attempted,to get uut of the
way, hilt tno late.   The Rithet struok
hor abuut half way between the wheel-
house aud bow, running iuto her apparently 20 or 30 feet. The shock produced by the collision was very slight.
Passengers on tho Rithet say it was
not more severe than is often experienced in making a landing at tho
wharf. Splinters and broken pieces
of the unfortunate Bteamer went flying
in all directions. The scene which
followed was beyond description. It
is aaid the captain and officers of the
Enterprise made no proper effort to
preserve order or procure the safety
of tbe passengers. Indeed, we are
told that Capt. Rudlin was among the
first t'j escape from his steamer and
take refuge on the Rithet! In a few
seconds twelve or fifteen people were
struggling in the water among bales of
hny, pieces of timber, drowning cattle,
and wild confusion. Women wero
screaming, nion wero rushing about,
nnd the 50 Chinamen and Indians kopt
up a perpetual clatter. Several men
had life-preservers about thein, but it
waa fortunate that not many uf them
went into the wnter, fur these
life-preserving applinncea would certainly have proved in some instances the innocent instruments
of death, for they wero tied about the
lega aud the feot! Many of the
wrecked passengers wore able to step
from the Enterprise un to the Rithet,
us the two steamers stood lucked together for several minutes. Very
anon, however, tho Enterprise began
to slip nwny and sink, bow first. Soma
boats were lowered nnd carried passengers to the Rithot, uud some swam
to the uninjured steadier and wore
pulled onboard. One of the female
passengers in her excitement dropped
a child overboard, but it wus promptly
rescued by Mr. D. McDonald, of Winnipeg, who happened tu be a passenger. To add tu the confusion several
cattle, of whicli there wero about HO
head on board, begun swimming nbout
tho wreck, and greatly frightened
some of tho peoplo in tho water. One
of these animals was forced up into
the ladies' cabin and came out on the
hurricane deck! Among the passengers on board the ill-fated steamer
were Miss Dickinson, Miss Homer,
Mrs. T. Harris, and Messrs. R. H.
Alexander, Wm. Fisher, D. McDonald, C. Todd, T. R, Pearson, and A.
L. Francis. Moat of the ladies wure
remarkably self-possessed under the
circumstances, and none more so than
Miss Homer, It wub not long before
all the passengers who could be found
were safely ou board the Rithet, and
ahe started with them for Victoria. It
ia known that two Chinamen wore
drowned or lulled, but there is no certainty as to whether any more perished
ur not. Several passengers were badly
burned, and the mate had an arm and
sume ribs broken. The Enterprise
gradually settled duwn bow first, thc
stern sticking out of the water at an
angle of about 45 degrees. The str.
Slope, wliich happened to be noar at
the time.of the accident, tuok hold of
the bull and towed it towards the
shore of Cadboro Bay, where it was
eventually beached. All tho baggage,
froight, mails, express, and treasure
went down with the steamer.
The value of the treasure is estimated at about 810,000. The
mails, baggage and treasure were subsequently taken out in a damaged condition, and the bodies of two Chinamen were found uu Wednesdny after*
nomi. It iB believed the steamer was
not insured. Lately thu company
spent upwards of 88,000 overhauling
and refitting her. She will probably
bo a total loss, except the machinery,
Burton's Prnirie & Lehman's.
THE PROVINCIAL SECRETARY A THE SETTLERS
According to announcement the pro
vinoinl socretary proceeded to Burton's
Prairie last Wednesday. The meeting
was tu havo been held at 3 o'clock in
the afternoon, but in consequence uf
delays arising out of the steamboat
(■(■■"■■on it wns 7 o'clock before the
pruv/ucial secretary reaohed the appointed place. There was a large number pf settlers present, but many of
them had exhausted their patience aud
left before the steamer arrived. An
informal meeting of those who remained was held, when the provincial secretary addressed them upon various
public questions, especially that of
roads. A general programme of road
work was proposed which met with
the approval of those present, and was
received with great satisfaction. The
meeting presented the following address:
To thb Hon. Jno. Robson, Pkovin-
cul Secretary: Dear SiR.—We, the
settlers of this vicinity, hereby tender
you a hearty welcome to this our settlement. Allow us to congratulate you as
the first member of the legislature that
has ever paid us a visit, but we hope
you will not be the last. - We also beg
to tender the present government our
hearty support, as this Ts tho only government from which we havo received
any measure of that substantial assistance
whioh has long been our due. We are,
sir, yours respectfully.

MOUNT LEHMAN.
On Thursday the provincial socretary
proceeded to Mount Lehman, whore
he met tho settlers uf that place and
also a number frum Alder Grove and
Matsqui. A meeting was organized in
tho school houao at 10 n.m. Mr. Anthony Hawkins was elected chairman,
and Mr. Sweeny acted as secretary.
The meeting was addressed at considerable length by the pruvincinl secretary upon various topics of public interest, especially those affecting the
progress of the settlements represented. The address was listened to with
greal attention, and frequently Interrupted by applause. Several settlers
took part in tho discussion, und the
mooting expressed itself well satisfied
with the programme of road work
agreed upon. A resolution waa passed
thanking tho provincial secretary for
his visit and address, aud complimenting him upon being the tirst representative of tho district to visit Mount
"Lehman.   ^__«___
Lightning does ita work before the
victim knows anything. Two mon
were struck while taking refuge under
a tree. Buth were carried into tho
house and laid out for dead. One of
the men revived, nnd, after weeks of
terrific suffering nnd infirmity, he got
out again and is still living. He Baid
ho knew no more about having been
struck by lightning than ho was conscious uf having lived befure the flood.
It wbb all nows to him when he was
told of the fact.

From Alaska.
The steamer Ancon, Capt. Carroll,
from Alaska, nrrived yesterday morning. Capt. Carroll saya that the mining excitement is at fever heat, and
some very rich discoveries have been
made. Glowing accounts are given of
the Treadwell mine, on Douglas Island,
The new 120-stamp mill was placed in
position and ready for wnrk about one
month ago. and in ono month the receipts have amounted to nearly $100,-
000, ut.an expense of uut m|re than
15 per cent, of tho proceeds. There is
evory indication of a rich revenue from
the great quartz mill,' which is the
largest ou the continent. It wns erected at a heavy expense and under many
disadvantages iu that distant country,
aud tho owners were not over sanguine
in their estimation on the value of the
ore, or tho quantity to be had. It is
expocted that over §250,000 will be
gained for tho next month's work.
Experts pronounce tho mine the largest nnd richest ovor discovered. The
favorablo report of Alaskan mineral
resources will, no doubt, attract the
attention of mining men everywhere,
aud a large number, it is expected,

Editor Columbian.— Owing to the
constant complaints of thc settlers arriving here of the obstructions ou the Yale
road, who is the proper person to notify
of the same? There aro stubs whieh
have been in the way since last December, and by having to go into the ditch
to get past it is almost impossible to get
through with heavy loads. Furthermore, a quarter of a milo west of the
18-mile post there is from four to five
chains which the wator lies upon in tho
winter months, leaving it almost Impossible for teams or foot passengers to get
through; also, crossing on section 26,
township 10, there is about three chains
and on section 111, township 13, there is
about four chains which I have seen
about three feet of water upon for the
want of a ditch being cut to the river,
only about tho distance of two chains.
Hoping yon will givo this apace in your
valuable paper, I remain yours truly,
G. Lawrence.

Rkoina, N.W.T., July 30.-In the
Riel trial to-day tho case for defence waa
opened by Mr. Green-Shields, of Quebec,
who said the chief line of defence would
be to prove tlie prisoner's insanity.
Father Andre, of Prince Albert, testified
that ho believed Riel to be insane on religion and politics. Hr. Roy, medical
lum, testified to the same effect, basing
his testimony on his observation of Riel
when in the asylum from 1876 to 1878.
superintendent of Beauport (Quebec) asy-
Dr. David Clarke, of Toronto lunatic
asylum, shared iu the same belief. Dr.
Walike, of Hamilton asylum, believed
the prisoner to he perfectly sane. Riol
was very muoh excited during the examination ns to his sanity.

new cases of cholera in the plague stricken districts yesterday, and 1,039 deaths.
Mr, R. C. Wiulow, Toronto, writos:-
"Northrop & Lyman's Vegetable Discov
cry 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 are certainly beyond my expectations. It assists digestion wonderfully. I digest my fook with
no apparent effort, and am now entirely
free from that senslltion, which evory
dyspeptic well knows, of unpleasant ful
ness after each meal."
Irish Land Purchase Bill.
A London cable says: In the lords
last evening Lord Ashbourne presented
tho Irish land purchase bill. He explained that owing to the limited time
at its disposal the govornment directed
Its eucrgies to produciug a short,
workable, non • contentious measure.
The bill provides for the advance of
three-fourths of the purchase money
at 4 per cent, interest for 40 years.
Where needed the whole money will
be advanced on conditions which,
while juat and generous, will not expose the government to the risk of
loss. It is therefore proposed, in such
cases, to retain a deposit of one-fifth
of the purchaso money at a moderate
rate of interest until the tenant has
repaid by instalment an equal sum,
also to utilize the Irish Church surplus
to guarantee the state from intimate
loss, but only after the forfeiture of
the one-fifth retained. Tho act is to
be administered by the existing land
commission, which will be reinforced
by two commissioners for three years
at a salary of £2,000 a year. The
government thought it too late in the
session to appoint a new commission.
It is ulso proposed to create a cheap
and simple' form for the conveyance
uf land. Earl Spencer approved the
measure. Replying to questions,
Lord Ashbourne said tho government
proposed to limit the amount of money
to be advanced to £5,000,000. Tlie
bill passed ita firat reading,
NiiKftet Huntlug-
An old minor who followed the gold
excitement in its devious wandering*
in Australia, California, Mexico and
British Columbia, related to a San
Francisco Cull reporter a few days ago
Gcvciiil instances of lucky discoreriu*.
'An old Dutchman brought the
plodding   method   of  his   race  to thu
i*uik of gold digging in Australia.   AU
J his collip'aniiins had boldness and
dash; but few had tliu stolid persistency in the face nf Imd luek that this
Dutchman possessed. Hu Imd been
plodding along for several months digging a tunnel. Heavy clay was all about
him. Not u pr-mining sign beckoned
i\ on. Hu scorned to get more sottled in his determination to work the
tunnel to the end tho more unpromising it looked.   He had buen working
ill ill tho face of discouragement for
several days. One murning he wns
milking his way into hia tunnel, and
beforo he had gone fourteen feet his
heart sank within him.   There in front
f him was his tunnel, caved! The
path hu had laboriously dug into the
hill wns clogged with tons of earth.
Rut the quality of his character asserted itself. Most men would have volleyed oaths nt their ill luck, und packed
up their kit aud left. The miner
moved more slowly than before, but
he started again to work in the aame
tuiiuul, Ho crawled into his tunnel,
nnd with a pick and shovel set to work
clearing away the hill of earth that
blocked his path, He had not struck
a dozon blows with hU pick before the
sh:ii|) iron point struck something
solid. Mechanically he bent forward
and cleared away the earth, and there
before him was n big nugget, as nuggets go, weighing fourteen ounces. He
crept out of the tunnel, bringing his
precious uuggot with him, and when
ho got into the fresh air and heard the
birds flinging, he sat down and wepi.
No one begrudged the Dutchman hia
luck.
"A nuggety country that has been
only partially worked is just as good a
field as virgin soil," continued the
miner. "Thu spots that have not been
touched may be the very nests of the
lnutal. It is dangerous to leavo a single
foot of ground uu worked. The fortune of n lifetime might thus be passed
by and lost forever. There are many
instances of just sueh cases. There
wna a poor, shiftless fellow, with a
wife in rags and children iu squalor.
The wholo family used to go into the
diggings together and shift about till
they had got enough to buy something
to oat. But ouo day they straggled
into the diggings, not having energy
enough to push on abreast of the workers. They fell to picking a little pillar
that had been left standing in the
midst of tho diggings, all ahout it having been worked, 1 do not think it
could have been moro than three feet
across, certainly not more than six.
It wns a spot that hud been neglected
as the diggers pushed their drifts
ahead. The squalid family began
work on this solitary pillar; all they
hoped for was a fow grains to feed
thein for Ihe day. As the man continued listlessly, the sunlight was
caught np ly a speck iu thu pillar thut
glistened and flashed, Tho oyes of
the poor fellow saw it; he thought liis
work for the day was done. Ilo knelt
down to clean away tho dirt from ttie
bright i-pot. Ab he did h*j the shining
metal grew to larger proportions. Immediately tho whole family wna around
it in eager haste to uncover it. The
furthor thoy cleared tho auil away
about it the further it seemed to recede. After working for two hours
with growing astonishment lhey saw
tho full outline of their prize—oue of
the largest lumps of gold ever fouud.
This was the luckiest find ever made."
"The Mount Moliagul nugget wus
found in a moat peculiar place," resumed the miner. "Thoro was an
unusually rich diggings in the vicinity of Mount Moliagul, Victoria, tliat
had made a hundred men rich. It
had been thoroughly worked iu evory
direction, and it wna thought that
every grain of gold iu the neighborhood had beon collected. Thc crowd
that once made tlio camp a busy
scene uf lifo dissolved us quickly as
it had collected, leaving thu shanties
to the mercy of the weather, which
soon made them a picturesque ruin.
Off' toward the east there was a solitary tree stump, standing on a pillar
of earth that had not been cut away
by the gold hunters because of the
old roots of thc treo that spread
through the aoil. It was not moro
than ten feut iu circumference that
had been loft by thc diggers. One
day two miners came to the deserted
camp and stopped over night ou the
.site nf the old camp, The stump
struck one nf them as a singular feature of the uid diggings, und being a
skilful minor, he knew that one part
of a nuggety country wns ns likely
to prove rich ns thc portions of tho
neighboring field that had yielded so
much gold. He resolved to work the
littlo mound next day. His companion, however, was anxious to be off fo
thu latest diggings, whore the excitement was at the highest pitch. But
the first miner, who had resolved to
explore the solitary jj'atch of tho deserted diggings, persuaded his partner, and together they sot to work on
the old stump. Thoy began by undermining one side ■ f tho stump, but
before they hnd dug in three feet
they discovered an enormous nugget,
one of the most valuable that had boon
found in the whole digginga. They
oontinued their labors and uprooted
the stump, but did not find another
grain of gold.

Those troubled with sleeplessness
are invited to try the following rem1
edy. It is based upon the theory that
sleep is prevented by nn excess of
blood in the brain nnd may be induced
by drawing it to othor parts of the
body: "Having assumed the usual pus-
turo of repose, inhale aud exhale
slowly and steadily long breaths, devoting tho wholo attention to making
the inhalations aiid exhalations of
exactly tbe same length. Tho length
should be much greater than tbat of
ordinary breathing, although not suSl-
cient to disturb the circulation by
working tho lungs to their utmost
capacity. Any person who has fuice
of will enough to concentrate his
whole attention on thu maintenance of
thia style of breathing can compel
sleep in very unfavorable circumstances."
Mrs. Barnliart, cor. Pratt and Broadway, has been a sufferer for !2,years
through rheumatism, and has tried every
remedy she could bear of, but received
no benefit until nhe tried Dr, Thomns'
Kclectric OU; she snys she cannot express the satisfaction she feels at having
her pain entirely removed niid her rheumatism cured. There are wise imitations
of this medicino for sale; sec that you
get Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil.
A man walking in a field near Cincinnati was killed by lightning, the
fluid passing up from thc oarth to the
cloud. This was proved by the pur-
sous who saw tho line of lire go upward; by the leather driven into his
foot from tbe sole of his boot, and by
thu perforation iu thu top of his hat,
the ragged edi;c pointing upward.

The Soldiers at fiunkim.
A London cubio says: Very gloomy
letters nro received from the British
troops now quartered at Suitkiin. Thu
aoldim-s express the belief tlmt this
remnant of den. Graham's force has
been forgotten by the war oflico, now
that the guards and tho Australians
havo been withdrawn. They say that
they are surfing no military purpose
whatever, their sole efforts being concentrated in trying to escape death,
not at tho hands of the euemy, hut
from the eflects of the climate. The
hot desert wind is now blowing con'
tinuously. It ia simply impossible For
Europeans to livo away from shelter
during tho middle of the dny. Tlieir
uniforms aro wholly un sui table for tho
conditions under whicli thoy aro trying to exist, and oflicers and men go
about naked. The heat averages 110
degrees in the shade. Wnter is nbuu-
duut, but fresh food is scarce, and the
diet of canned moat and vegetables,
togothor with the hitunso heat, makes
enteric diseases very prevalent. There
aro 110 proper ncootnmodatibnR for thu
aick iu tho Held. The gunboats in the
harbor arc simply floating hospitals,
and aro already so crowded with patients that thero is no chanco for others
to obtain admission. The percentage
of mortality among tho sick in the inland field hospitals is frightful. Ouo
sergeant bitterly says: "We aro dying
off liko sheep with tho murrain. If
they want Ostriau whipped in the autumn we won't be alive to do it. Better send tho pets back to get the glory
again. We are good enough to rot
here."
Cooling (He Cellars.
A grout mistaku in sometimes made
in ventilating collars aud milk-houaos.
The object of ventilation is to keep
the cellars cool and dry, but this object often fails of being accomplished
by a common mistake, and instead,
the cellar is made both warm and
damp. A oool placo should never be
ventilated, unless tho air admitted is
cooler than tho air within, or is at least
as cool as that, or a very little warmer.
The warmer tlio air, thc more moisture
it holds in suspension. Necessarily,
the cooler the air, thc more this
moisture is condensed und precipitated.
When a cool cellar is aired on a warm
day, Um entering air being in molioii
appears cool; but as it tills tho cellar,
the cooler air with which it becomes
mixed chills it, tho moisture is condensed, and dew is deposited on the
cold walls, and may often be seen running down them in streams. Then
the cellar is damp, and soon becomes
moldy. To avoid this, the windows
should only be opened at night, and
late—the last thing hefore retiring.
Thore is no need to fear that the night
air. is unheaUhful—it is as (mro as tin
air of midday, and is really drier. Tho
eu'-l nir enters tho apartment during
the night, nud circulates through it.
The windows should bo closed before
sunrise in the morning, and kept closed
nnd shaded through tho day. If the
air uf a cellar is dump, it may bu thoroughly, dried by placing in it a pock of
fresh lime in au open box. A peck of
lime will absorb about sevmi pounds,
or more thau threo quarts of water,
and in this way a cellar or milk-room
may soon bo dried, ovon in tho hottest
weather,—American Aijricnll itrixt.
Tlie Story or Vesuvius.
A little more than eighteen centuries since, the form of tho mountain
, was totally different; its height was
probably some hundred yards loss than
at present, its outline a blunt, truncated cone, having n wido crater at the
summit. No eruption in tho memory
of mun hud disturbed the pence of tho
district; scarce a tradition of such an
occurrence appears to havo lingered.
The floor of the crater wns overgrown
with brushwood aud trees, its walls
were festooned with ivy and wild vino.
Onco does it only become prominent
in history, when the Capuau gladiators
shelter themselves for awhile iu this
natural hill-fort, from wliich, undor
command of Spnrtncus, they escaped
to begin the Servile War. In tho yoar
70 of the present era thero was a
change; earthquakes agitated tho neighboring district, and nt last tho imprisoned fires broke forth. From the
crater of Vesuvius a huge dark cloud
rose into the air, spreading itself out
like n groat pine tree. Presently a
hail of rod-hot scoria camo rattling
down over the flanks of the mountain,
nnd as night fell the cloud grew larger
aud darker, and the shower of stones
became thicker, heavier, nnd more
widely spread. All night long the
darkness for many a mile was rendered
blacker still by thu thickly falling scoria, though illuminated at intervals by
a lurid gleam from the mountain, and
rendered yet more awful by the incessant earthquake shocks. Morning
dawned at last, and Inter still the air
cleared; half the ancient crater wall
had vanished, leaving thu fragment
which uow honrs tho name of Homma,
while beneath its ruins Horculanouin,
Pompeii and Stabile lay buried, and
tho ground, even at Miscount, was
white ns snow with the fallen ashes.
Are Von Ihe Temperance Han.'
There lives a man - lot me cull him
George Hardy, the name matters uot,
for it is his story I would impress upon
you-who possesses groat abilities.
His childhood was full of promiso, his
manhood rosy with bono, und his prospects great, until drink beenmo his
master and dragged him down.
His education 'was the bost this
country could givo him, nnd he had
grasped what he studied with the grip
of a, groat mind. Going to tlio bar,
he became a meteor among his fellows,
a' bright star, with powers of oratory
that excited tho admiration of nil who
heard him.
Starting so well on a career so full
of promise, he married, and had children. He loved his wife whon he
married her, and continued to lovo
her without a doubt; but the fatal
fascination of the wine - cup took
possession of him, and wino beenme
his chief pleasure. It stimulated hiin
first, and he became a wonder to those
around him; but when it became a
necessity to him it increased its powers over him, nnd sapped tho energies
and intelligence of which ho had been
so proud.
The change was soon apparent.
With a mind muddled, he mismanaged
two or three cases intrusted to him-
ruined thom, in faot—and confidence
in him was lost. Aftor that ho wont
down hill.
From a cheerful, happy man, hu
became a moody, discontented, surly
brute. It is folly to mince matters in
speaking of him as he then was, for a
brutfl drink had made him. He ill*
treated the woman he loved, and at
lilt drove her from the house to seek
refuge with hor fnther.    She took all
tho children but onu with hor.
The child wns a boy, a copy of bis
father iu beauty aud intelligence.
George Hardy saw in that buy what ho
had onco beon, and his lovo for tho
child was strong onough to stay his
band when hu would havu struck him.
He did not ask for thu boy to bo left
with him; it was tho boy's choice.
"I cannot leavo him," tho child said.
Down, down went the father, until
be became a frequenter of the public-
house bars. To go thoro and drink
tho littlo ho earned was according to
his views, being "on a spree." A
"spree," according to the dictionary,
is a "merry frolic;" but, alas! for the
merriment in thoso mad outbursts—
where was it?
To drink, to boast of what ho had
beeu, to quarrel, to resort to mean
shifts to get money to spend, was all
ho seemed to live for; but the boy
never left him except to sloop.
When hu went out "on tlio spree,
tho boy followed  him, and when hu
reeled unt of tbe ptiblic-houso. sodden
aud stupjd, took him homo.
How often that child had boen
tempted to touch tho fatal poison that
had ruined his father, it is impossible
to'say. But many, many times strangers, and bis father too, had urged him
to put his lips to thu dangerous cud;
but ho was staunch and truo to the
instinct within bim.
"No, no," he would say; "if yoii
kill mo, who is to take care of hiin?"
This from a little child of twelve
would have been touching to auy class
of men except tliose who make tho
publie-hoiiBQ their home. But hia
father's pot companions only laughed
nt him. Ho boro it nil, and never
swerved from his self-imposed duty,
Theru wore times when tho father
might bo seen lying in the gutter help-
loss, and tho child seated upon tho
kerbstone holding the heavy head of
tho druuknrd iu his lap; and there he
would wait until help came.
Matters had got to their worst. For
yoars tho father lived on and the boy
was still with him. One day a famous
temperance lecturer, hearing of tho
man, wont to Iho house nud knocked
at tho dour. Tiio poor boy with u
serious face of anxious manhood upon
bim, but withal handsome and youthful, appeared.
"13 Mr. Hardy iu ?' tho visitor asked.
Tho boy was not sure, but said he
would see. He went nwny, nnd quickly returning, ushered the lecturer into
tho neglected room. In a chair sat
thu fallen man, with hnir prematurely
white, without a waistcoat, and the
rust of his attire hanging loosely about
him.
He looked up, nud scanning his
visitor elorely, asked—
"Are you tho temperance' man ?"
"Yes," was the reply.
George Hardy moved uneasily in
his seat aud getting into a position
with bis back to the light, said—
"Why do you come to mo ?"
"To help you if 1 can."
Ho laughed bitterly, and with another uneasy movement- rejoined—
"Help mo! Do you know I have
boon n drunkard over twenty years.
Can I ho saved?"
"Yes," said the lecturer, "with
God's help you can."
He waved his hand with (he contempt of lhe unbeliever, and said—
"Don't talk to iin; of God."
But the "temperance man," tho
wearer of tho blue, was not to bo put
off. Ho had a story to tell of his own,
almost as dark as that of the wretched
man bufore him. He hogan it. but
George Hardy, interrupting him, rose
from liis chair,
"I should liko Georgia to hear you,"
he said.
Then lie called the little boy, nnd ho
camo in with big tears running down
his chocks. It was plain to sec that
his heart wns breaking, and tho fnther,
stubbornly blind so long, saw it. All
the pent-up loveuf yoars, held back by
the great barrier drink, found vent. It
broke through nnd carried everything
boforo it.
''Oh! my son," ho cried, clasping
the boy iu his arms.
Ho held him thero for n while, and
the visitor sat still, feoliug that tho
hour for help had come. "Pray for
me," lie sobbed; aud they knelt together, aud tho words of earnest pleading for a long sinful past poured from
tho broken man's lips. A week from
thnt time a meeting was held near
George Hardy's house. It was one of
the many thut ure boing hold throughout thu land iu this groat time of
awakening. In the midst of it George
Hardy walked iu und pnssod down the
room,
He was known to many, and joyous
murmurs welcomed his coming.
Straight to the platform ho walked.
There was a table upon it, and on this
he laid his hand.
"I am going to sign the pledge," he
said; "you all know what I havo been.
Pray for me."
He signed it, and then on his knees
asked God to holp him to keop from
drink. A long und fervent prayer
burst from his lips, und thrilled through
tho hearts of nil who heard it.
He has been truo to that vow. Thu
wife whom he drove awny nnd kept
nwny with throats hns como baok to
him. The children to whoso sweet
voices hu turned a deaf ear nro again
gathered about him, nud Ids home is a
happy one
Ho is not now so great a man as he
might hnvo been, but ho is prosperous,
nnd lives honored and respected, bo-
cause hu is no longer seen in tho public house, aud the wine bottle is banished from his home.
Tho boy so stout of heart through
all is growing into a sober manhood,
and with the blessing of Almighty God
may one day hold the position iu life
his fathor forfeited.
Ask George Hardy now, "aro you
tho temperance man?" and ho will
proudly and thankfully answer*—
"Thank God, lam." Is it not well
for him that he is able to answer thus,
and would it not be well for all if they
could say tho samo thing? To be a
temperance man is to be a sober, honest, happy, thriving citizen, the ro-
verse of the drunkard in everything.
Tho ouo is a blessing to the community, the other a curse. One fills his
position in life with credit and honor
to himself, and profit to others; the
other is a social leper, who endures untold misery, and is too often shunned
hy those around him,
It is r. good thing to be ablo to say
"Yos" when you are nsked if you nre
a temperance mnn, but how lost to
shame ono must bo to acknowledge
thnt ho iH a drunkard. And yet Bomo
doggedly boast of the way they give
tlieir livos to drink. It is only drink
tbat could make thein so shameless.

Paralysis It
Two of thom came In In a dying condition.
Tho Hospllnl has undergone a good deal
of repairing during tho year. Tho water
iilpcs hnvo been fixed; outhouses hnve
been moved, and one built for tho reception of tlie dead until burial. Whitewashing nnd papering hns been done, mnking
tho plnco look bright nud cheerful,
I hnve to thank a number of friends of
tho institution for contributions of pictures,, texts, and rending mutter of ovory
description und in large quantities. Also
for tho supply of old washed linen which
Is particularly useful, Also, I hnve to
thank the steward, Mr, Charles Digby, for
tha pnlns ho has tuken in keeping the
wards clean and comfortable: nud, nlso,
for his kindness und nttontlon tothe sick,
Beforo closing my report I wish to suggest thut If a fever wnril.i.c., to udmlf typhoid foyer, could be opened, It would aud
very materially lo the usefulness of the
Institution. I think Mint this might bo
done without much expense by attaching
three or four rooms to the building for the
use of tho steward und his fumily nnd using th« wards up slnlrs for fever eases.
I also wish to bring boforo your notice
the necessltyof mora drains beltigjiulll,
especially one from the hospital direct to
tho rivor.
