Another English sealing vessel
has been seized in the Alaskan
waters by a United States cutter
for illegally catching seals. The
peculiarity of the claim which backs
up this policy is that it asserts for
the United States Government an
authority which it denies to Oanada
in the fisheries dispute. We oppose
the Canadian claim that the three
mile limit goes from headland to
headland, and yet we assert sovereignty over a vast sea nearly as
large as the whole North Atlantic
ocean, where the seal fishery is con
cerned. If Oanada claims exclusive advantages for her fishing fleet
we do not like it", but in Alaska we
virtually assert that a single company shall have the right to kill
seals in the whole of the northern
extremity of the Pacific ocean. This
does not seem very consistent; but
it is entirely harmonious with the
generally accepted policy of running the Government in the interest
of wealthy and favourite corporation.^—Pittsburg Despatch.
The recent floods in a portion of
Ohina have reduced the inhabitants
of the flooded districts to a condition of pitiable suffering. One of
our vice-consuls reports to tho State
Department that during a trip made
through those districts he relieved
186 people. He found the natives
generally living *on the bran and
chaff of alarge species of grass grown
for feeding cattle. Somo were reduced to eating chopped grass moistened with water or baked in cakes,
while others fed on leaves and seeds
of weeds gathered in tho fields' In
some of the villages fully one-half
the dwellings had been washed
away, and the inhabitants were huddled together in the few 'remaining
huts. The deaths from starvation
have been very numerous. Tho Ohinese, as a rule, are very indifferent
to human life, and in all probability
the idea of succouring these poor,
starving, homeless creatures never
ontered the beads of thoso. around
or near them, who might have relieved them. They simply left them
to their fate perfectly careless as to
whether they starved to death or
not, or what became of them. But
even if they had desired to help
them, none but those living in their
immediate vicinity could havo rendered them much assistance on account of the slowness and difficulty
of intercommunication. On the
network of canals and on tbe river
transit is easy and comparatively
rapid by means of boats propelled by
oars and sails, but beyond that it is
very tedious and attended by all
sorts of obstacles.—Omaha See.
Under a sweeping claim of jurisdiction over Behring Sea, a United
States revenue cutter has this season again seized American and English vessels for catching fish in its
waters, in alleged violation of the
exolutive privileges of tho Alaska
Seal Fur monopoly. There is in
this case no question of a three-mile
limit, as in Oanada, beyond which
American fishermen have equal,
rights in Canadian waters. The
Alaska Soul Fur Oompany claims
the exclusive privilege of catching
seals in all the Alaskan waters, and
the Government ii engaged in arresting the crews and confiscating
the cargos of all vessels that venture within tho domain of this monopoly. Already the United States
revenue cutter Bush has captured
two vessels this season, one American and the other English, for the
offence of catching seal in the Behring Sea. Tho cargoes of seals havo
been confiscated and the crows sent
to Sitka, Alaska, for trial in the
United States court. Should the
oourt prove as subservient to the
seal fur monopoly ns in the past,
its judgment in their cases may be
readily anticipated. Meanwhile, tho
three seal fishing vessels captured
last season are lying moored at Oun-
nlaska awaiting the action of the
authorities in regard to them. This
Government has rarely been engaged
in defending a more obnoxious monopoly than that of tho Alaska Seal
Fur Oompany or in nsserting a more
extravagant claim of jurisdiction
than that which has been made in
its behalf, Compared with this
claim the pretention of the Canadians
to dominion over their waters under
the treaty of 1818 is one of extreme
liberality and moderation. —Phili-

SEWS FKOH HONOLULU.
San Francisco, Aug. 8.—Tho str.
Zealand!., from Australia and Honolulu arrived here about noon to3arr
She brings Honolulu advice, to July
30th. Nothing startling has occurred since tbe signing of the constitution by King Kalakaua and the departure of ex-Premier Gibson for the
United States. On the day that the
king signed the constitution, the marshal of the kingdom, accompanied by
the police, blowing horns, rode around
the principal streets of the city and
proclaimed a new constitution. The
next day it was proclaimed in the districts throughout the island, and a few
days later throughout the other island,
of the Hawaiian group. Interests are
now centered in the coming election
for niembcrn of the house of noble,
and tho house of representatives. The
oath required under the new constitution is to the effect that "tie who subscribes thereto, swears he will support
the said constitution and laws of the
said,kingdom, not hereby renouncing
but expressly reserving all allegiance
and citzenship now owing or held by
me." On the 25th ult. a meeting wa.
hold in Honolulu that may prove of
some significance It was a meeting of
the native Hawaiians for the purpose
of nominating candidates for the house
of nobles and the house of representatives. Over 300 native subject, wore
present, among them being the acting
pastor of the church in which the
gathering was held, together with
other prominent natives. The meeting
wus not altogether harmonious and
according to advices adjourned without formally nominating candidates.
After stating the object, of the meeting the chairman cautioned the' speakers not to use exciting language, then
called on one S. Cane, This speaker
said: A short timo ago a new constitution was drawn up and signed by his
majesty the king and hi. ministers.
We have not yet signed it. I do not
hesitate to My that some of the article,
in the constitution are very good;
other, aio uul. Fur tbe grit time in
the history of thi. kingdom ™ h...
power to vote for the nobles, tbat is,
providing we take the oath under th.
now constitution. If we do not take
the oath, of course we cannot vote,
but in this perilous time we are under
obligations to take the oath no matter
whether wo agree with it or not; we
■hall have a majority on our side and
then will be able to change it. The
next speaker, Kaloukon, said: As no
candidates had a. yet been nominated
he would propose his own name for the
district of Honolulu. He approved of
the new consti.ution; tho liberty of
voting had nover before been accorded
to the people; no one had been oppressed by the ue,r constitution. The
tonecf the remarks of thisspe.ker.eem-
ed not to meet the approval of the audience. K. M. Poepoc, in addressing
the audience said, Tbat the country,
which heretofore had been jubilant,
was now in mourning. Tho previous
speaker had said that they were not
oppressed by this now constitution.
" He iB the agent of death. (Applause). Then is little good in the
new constitution, but there is much to
oondemn. In the next legislature the
new constitution will bo finally approved. It's aim i. to make Hawaiia
a republic, therefore thoy want to exercise the same powor here as they do
in thoir own country. They are doing
it little by little and it will not be long
beforo ^Hawaiia will become an en-
tiro republic. We, who cherish our
king, ought not to allow thi. to be
done, therefore we must unite together heart and soul and elect candidates
who will remove this oppression."
After a few remarks by other speakers
in a similar vein the meeting adjourned. Taking political affair, in the
kingdom as a whole they seem now to
be comparatively quiet Queen Kap-
iolani arrived at Honolulu on July
aoib and was given a royal welcome.

THE NORTHERN JTSHERIES A FAILURE.
San Franoisco, Aug. 8.—J. K.
Daggett, president of the McC.llam
fishing and tredinp company, hu returned from Alaska. He .tate. that
when he left, July 21.t, the outlook
for a favorable season's work in sealing, codfishing and salmon netting
was anything but flattering. It wu
hoped at the beginning of this season
the schooners would etch about one
hundred thousand codfish each, bat
the season wu within two weak, of
being dosed when Mr. Doijgett left
and the schooner Arago reported but
46,000, the Dashing Wave, 60,000,
and the Isabella 65,000. None of the
others had been heard from. The
salmon pack did not run for several
weeks after the usual time of opening
of the canning seuon, and scalers that
called at Pirate Cove all reported from
160 to 460 seals, except the Penelope
which had 1300. Everything i. late
this year and prospeots are for a hard
winter.

The employment of British war
ships in restraining the encroachment of American fishermen on the
Atlantic const will probably put an
end to the trouble. It is a great
pity thia plan had not been adopted
long ago. .So long ns Canadian
cruisers were entrusted with the
enforcement of the treaty, American fishermen often took considerable liberties and trusted to the
fleetneas of their crafts or the ingenuity of their devices for escaping from danger. But the presence
of regular British liners will be apt
to produce a most wholesome respect for treaty obligations. Wo
hope the American government may
be induced also to send some more
of its war vessels to tho fishing
grounds. While certain Republican politicians have been howling
about Oanndian outrages on U. S.
fishermen, it is to be observed that
the 17. S. government bas not been
led away from a proper respect for
law by these howlers. The American ships have not interfered at all
with the operations of the Canadian
cruisers. They have tacitly admitted Canadian rights in the fishing
grounds, and when an infringement
of these rights has resulted in the
confiscation of the offending craft,
(he justness of tho proceeding has
commended itself to their sense of
propriety. The presence of American war vessels on the fishing
grounds, as stated hy the American
admin), is not with the object of
taking put in any quarrel that may
came up, but to give moral support
to the law. So long as the U. 8.
fleet ia guided by the present administration, its presence will be no
inducement to American fishermen
to trespass on Canadian fishing
grounds. For this reason their
presence is most desirable, for they
will be co-operating with the British and Canadian fleets in the enforcement of law; and those American fishermen who contemplate
encroachment! on Canadian waters
will find themselves between two
dangerous fires,
The OMcaio Boodler.
The alacrity with which American detectives and correspondents
are pursuing McGarigle, the escaped
Chicago boodler, through Oanada, ia
highly amusing. Chicago papers
are full of the exploits of these men.
It was confidently asserted that the
fugitive had escaped from the
schooner Blake at Sarnia. A few
days afterward, he was positively
Wentifiedat Sarnia.-W'jioming, London, Toronto, Hamilton, and St.
Catharines. On tbe top of all this
it id nnpounced quite emphatically
that lie did W go by the Blake at
all; and some even believe he is
still hiding in Chicago. Meanwhile
Pinkerton's detectives are scouring
the province of Ontario, and correspondents are telegraphing columns of the most awful contradictions to their respective newspapers.
James Baxter, of Montreal, has
sworn out a warrant for the boodler,
and has added to the general uproar
by despatching detectives west to
apprehend him wherever he may be
found. When McGarigle was at
the head of the Chicago police force,
he put up a job on Baxter which is
the cause of the warrant Baxter
had an interest in a valuable silver
mine on Lake Superior, and the
mine vent into the Chicago courts.
Before the case came up for hearing
McGarigle, by some crooked means,
managed to have Baxter's photograph placed in the Chicago "rogues'
gallery," snd this fact was brought
into court for the purpose of turning the jury against him. Baxter
new proposes to have him arrested
and tried for conspiracy. But the
great difficulty in the way of all procedure now- seems to be the difficulty
of finding the oulprit. The American authorities declare that they
will arrest him on Canadian soil
and appeal to the Canadian govern
ment for extradition. But if they
succeeded in this, which is most
improbable, it may be doubted
whether they would be able to obtain a oonvietioo. It has been held
by the United States that a person
who is extradited tor any offence
can be tried for tbat offence only.
In the esse of McGarigle it does not
seem thtt the crime for which he is
wanted is extraditable at all, and
under the decision of its own courts
the United States could not extradite him on one offense and try him
for another. All ef which goes to
snow- the necessity for a revision of
the extradition tresty now existing
between tke two countries — a
necessity whioh, we hope, will he so
forced atpom the United States authorities by the McGarigle case as
to produce some practical result

The Age of Invention.
J. W. Stoker, of Kansas City,
has just thrown up the world an
invention that is calculated to en -
tirely revolutionize railroading
by doing away with steam and
putting electricity in its place,
It is said that a train carrying
all of Mr. Stoker's patents would
be a moving stream of electricity
a circuit on wheels, and the inventor is confident that it will
be but a few years until all the
railroads in the country will
have to adopted his patents. He
has had no trouble in organizing
a company of Kansas City capitalists, who are of his opinion
and who have organized and
taken $1,000,000 of stock in the
patents. The railway train of
the future will be propelled by
electricity, of course, and the inventor, to hasten the change
from the old to the new method,
has arranged his electrical contrivance so that it can be applied
to the locomotive of to-day. The
tender will be replaced by an
electrical storage battery car,
about one-half as large as an express car. The electricity generated by the battery will supply
an electric motor in 'the engine,
The motor operates compressed
air-pumps which force the air
into the boiler and run' the engine with cold air instead of
steam. This does away with
fuel and water, smoke and cinders. Having furnished the
power, [the inventor as turned
his attention to the train itself.
A very neat little contrivance,
called by the inventor an electric conductor and air-brake
coupler combined, provides connection for the electric wires
which arc run through the train,
by connecting the tube. The
coupler makes connection for
both as simply as though they
were but one tube. Mr. Stoker
is now at work upon an invention that he expects will entirely
supplant the Westinghouse airbrake. This is an electro-automatic air-brake constructed
upon an entirely different plan
from that of the Westinghouse.
By means, of it the pressing of
an electric button in the cab of
. the engine will stop the train at
once. The bell cord will be done
away with by another invention,
and the grasping of a wooden
handle or the touch of an electrical button will blow a whistle
in every car in the train an also

man who calls out the names of
the stations in an unintelligible
gibberish. In the end of each
car will be a sign. At the side
of the track at each station will
be a post, at the foot of which
will be planted an electric battery? An arm from this post will
reach out so as to touch each
car as it passes, and when it
touches the car, an electric current will be closed, and the card
bearing the name of the previous
station will drop, giving place to
the one bearing the name of
the next station. Another electrical device that the train of the
future will carry, will be a contrivance to prevent the wheels from
sliding. This will cause a great
saving on a railroad, as sliding
wears out the wheels, and is a
source of constant expense. The
inventor does not intend that
there shall be any collisions of
his moving battery trains, and
one of his inventions is an automatic flag-giving system. By
means of this each train will flag
itself around curves or at any
dangerous point. When a train
arrives at a certain distance from
the curves an electric current is
closed which raises a red flag or
lantern on the other side of the
curve. Still another of Stokes's
ideas is an automatic ventilator
for railway cars. By a system
of electric lights on which he
has applied for a patent, the
storage battery in the engine will
furnish the light for the cars, and
the miserable little coal oil lamps
will be no more. The engine
will also gleam forth into the
darkness with an electric head-
light,-and the inventor has a system of electric lighting for switches.—Omaha Republican.

STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption has for some
tlmo been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and cflcctual means
of conveying to Diseased Oigantj"Curatives," but in cases of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment waa practicably Impossible until the introduction of Oio Starr Kidney
Pod. It costs less than n single prescription nnd is Immeasurably moro decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal
Metlichud dosing. Worn immediately over
tho seat of Disease, its curatlvo properties
become absorbed by tho diseased and enfeebled Organs, continuously and directly,
ns required to Insure In return their healthy action and original vigour. It Is comfortable to the put lent and pleasant In Its
effects, and mires when nothing else oan.
Tho Htarr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A more valuable
discovery ns a truo remedy for Kidney
Diseases was nover mud v.—Medical Gazette

sworn in as president of tho council.
Mr. Turner will, of course, have to go
before his constituents for re-election,
and we may look for a lively opposition fight. Mr. Dunsmuir accopta no
portfolio, and will not require re-election. These appointments will surprise
no one, as they have for some time
beon oxpectcd. Mr. Turner, we believe, will make an excellent minister
of finance, and wo presume he will
have no difficulty in obtaining tlio en-
dorsation of his constituents.

These bricks have been submitted to
the inspection of Mr. G. W. Grant,
architect, who pronuncoB them in ap-
Searance and shape equal to any he
as seen in the country. Mr. O'Bripn
inform, us that several contractors' iii
the oily who have inspected tho bricks
speak highly of them. The yard at
Por( Haney is supplied with 4 brick
machines, operated by horso power,
and capable of turning out aboutlG.000
bricks per day. Tho first kiln of 200,-
000 has just been burnt, and the
brioks brought to this oity yesterday
were taken from it.

Real Estate.—The Sisters have
purchased two lots on Royal Avenue,
immediately east of the property occupied by St. Mary's Hospital. The
price, we believe, was 131050. Wc believe they contemplate purchasing also
the two lots on Agnes st. adjoining,
upon whioh a. residence for the hospital physician will bo erected. Mr. J.
S. Cox has purchased an acre lot in the
suburbs, north of tho brewery, where
he intend, to establish a poultry farm.
The price paid was $300, which is a
very large advance on tho prices
which prevailed in thut vicinity a year
ago. A large number of houses are
going up in that part of the suburbs,
chiefly owned by workingmen, und
there i. a marked improvement in the
appearance of the place.
Tbe Fbesh Fish Tkade.— Messrs.
D. W. Port & Co. hove shipped this
season over tho C. P. U. about 100
tonB of fresh fish in ice for the eastern
markets. Theso have all gone by express, and have boon widely distributed. Today shipments were mode to
Kamloops, Donald, Banff, Calgary,
Qu'Appelle, Broadview, Region, Portage in Prairie, Winnipeg, Toronto,
Montreal, and New York. Shipments
have also been sent to Portland (Maine)
and Boston, whioh looKs like sending
coal to Newcastle. Tho express shipments of this firm amount to about
three tons per week. In' the freezer
soveral tons have been frozen and boxed for future use. When the spring
salmon begin running, a considerable
quantity will be frozen, aa they are
much larger than the Sockeyes, and
will make a better appearance when
frozen. Mr. Viannen has also shipped
a large quanity of. fresh salmon to
point, along the O. P, R., and all the
way to Winnipeg Fraser River salmon
may be had at the hotels and in the

for his decision.

8THEET WOUK.
Coun. Shilos moved thnt the tender
of D. L. Smith of $760 for opening up
John st. from Queen's avenue to Pel-
ham st. bo accepted.
Coun. Jaques thought that the
Council should not expend so large an
amount on this portion of the street,
when the money was more urgently
required to improve other streets.
Coun. Bonson thought tho tender
too high for the amount of work to be
expended.
Coun. Shiles motion wns then voted
on and lost.

to uno gas jet,
Coun. Juqucs recommended tbat
the opinion of an engineer be had for
Borne plan for drainage of the Sisters'
Hospital.
The council thon wont into committeo on the Sunday closing by-law.
Coun. Bonson said he objected to
closing' saloons within the city limits
on Sunday while without the oity
limits saloons were with wide open
doors. He thought if any remedy
for this evil were adopted it should be
general and wide-spread throughout
tho province.
Ooun. Jaques said, as tho present
council did not desire to combat the
liquor sellers on this question, he,
therefore moved that the by-law go
into force on tho 1st of January next.
Coun. Bonson moved in amendment
that it go into force on 1st Jan., 1890.
Ooun. Jaques' motion waa carried.
The by-law was then passed as read,
and read a third time. It provides
that business houses, saloons, &c,

for taxes, and also a list of the accounts in the city barrister's hands for
collection, together with that worthy',
charge, for collecting the same.
Coun. Curtis askod what course the
council meant to adopt in regard to
collecting the cow license tax.
It was decided not to collect the tax
at all, and that all who had paid the
tax should be refunded the money.
Coun. Reid then said as the dog tugs
hnd arrived he thought the by-law
should be enforced and owners of canines obliged to take out a lioenae.
It wat rewrlved to girt the public
notice through the press to tako out
licenses beforo the 15th inst.
It was moved by Coun. Jaques and
seconded by Couu. Bonson that the
