SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Dust Stoiims.—Showers of grayish and reddish dust off the African
coast and over southern Europe
have beeu known from Homer's
time. A "blood-rain" in 1766
covered 200 square leagues of
northern Italy, milking a deposit an
inch deep in places; and a dust fall
nenr Cape Verde, desorlbed by Darwin, was 1600 or 1800 miles wide
«l)d reached 800 or 1000 oiile».from
tlie const. A shower of dust near
Lyons, in 18*6, was estimated by
Ehrenberg to amount to 730,000 lbs.,
one-eighth being microscopic organisms. The red color is due to oxide
of iron.
Al'STUAMAN M0UXD-BUII,DEHS.—
In Australia and the neighboring
islands are seen many large mounds
of earth, which were formerly supposed to be the tombs of departed
natives. These remarkable tumuli
—reaching as much as 15 feet in
circumference at the base—are not
the work of man, however, but are
now known to be tho incubators
built by the Jungle Fowl and other
species of the small family of Mega-
podidae, or great-footed birds. Each
of these great piles consists of fallen
leaves, grasses, etc., whioh tho birds
deposit in place by throwing backward, with one foot.' Though the
mounds are usually in dense shade,
the decaying vegetable matter has
been found to raise the temperature
at tbe centre as high as 95°,
The eggs are carefully placed with
the larger end up, abont twelve
inches apart, and are all covered
to n depth of at least two or three
feet.
Tiik Earth's Supports.—In the
early gropings of the human mind
probably no problem was more perplexing than that of the earth's
foundations. One of tha most
primitive ideas represented the earth
as a vast flat island, surrounded by
an interminable ocean; and this
view was subsequently modified by
giving the ocean a circular boundary, with endless roots stretching
downward beneath the whole. The
priests of Veda asserted that the
earth was supported on twelve
columns, between which the sun
passed. Anaximander regarded the
earth as a cylinder floating in compressed air. The idea that the earth
floated long prevailed, even the
early Hindoos, who supposed the
hemispherical earth to rest on the
heads of four elephants standing on
tho back of a tortoise, maintaining
thut tho tortoise rested on the universal ocean. Aristotle and Strabo
conceived the sphericity of the
earth, but what lupported it as the
motionless centre of their universe
puzzled them. Cosmos, A. D., 535,
propounded the system of a square
earth, resting on nothing, and supporting the heavens on solid walls.
The Venerable Bede, who lived in
the eighth century, regarded the
earth as a floating egg, and this
notion lasted many centuries. These
crude theories have come down to a
surprisingly recent period—so muoh
»thing of today is our modern
scionco.
Pishes op the Sea.—Though no
sharp line of separation can be drawn,
murine fishes are roughly divided,
for convenience, into three categories: Shore fishes, whioh habitually frequent coast-lines, and rarely
descend to a greater depth than 300
fathoms; pelagic fishes, whioh inhabit the open sea, most of them
spawning there also; and the deep-
sea fishes, which live where tbe influence of light aud surface temperature is but little felt. The shore
fishes, according to Heilprin, number upwi.Tils of 3500 speoies. Their
northern range extends to or beyond
the eighty-third parallel of latitude,
but in the Southern Hemisphere
they are not known to go beyond
the sixtieth parallel. In tho different zones these fishes nre largely
identical in both the Atlantic and
Pacific basins, as well as on the opposite sides of these basins. Tropical waters, however, produce a
greater abundance and diversity of
forms than those of temperate
regions, while the reefs give to the
Pacific and Indian Oceans more
species than the Atlantic. Oar
still very meagre knowledge of the
pelagic fishes is sufficient to indicato
that the number of such types is
very limited. They diminish rapidly from the equator, and become
rare beyond the fortieth parallel.
Of tin* deep-sea fishes Guntner enumerated upwards of fifty forms
supposed to have been obtained
from depths exceeding 1000 fathoms;
twenty-six from depths exceeding
2000 fathoms; and nino from 2500
or over. Othor speoies havo since
been ulitainrd by ihe Talisman and
Albatross, ono from the extreme
ilipilinf 2900fathoms.

INTEItSATIOSAl COVBTEST.
London, Mor. 31.—An indication of
the intensity of the friction existing between the Frenoh and Italians is furnished by the following incident: "The
otptain of the Italian ship, Panama,
arriving at Maneillee to-day, insisted
tbat only Italian laborers should bs
employed in discharging his vessel's
cargo. The Frenoh laborere became
incensed at this and complained to the
port commissary of the discrimination
against them. Learning of this action
ofthe French laborers, the Italian
consul at Marseilles demanded of M.
Flourens, tha foreign minister, an explanation of the port commissary's interference with the rights of the matters of Italian vessels to employ whomsoever they pleased to load or discharge
cargoes or to do any other work they
might require. The tone of Ihe consul's demand is understood to have
narrowly escaped transcending the
lines within which diplomatic language
ia confined,and it is feared that an outbreak of hostilities will grow out of the
affair.
BRITISH   POLITICS.
London, March 31.—A lady, who
stands very high in tho councils of the
Tory party and the Primrose League,
aaid to-day that Lady Salisbury remarked a few days sgo with reference
to some contemplated journey, "We
cannot do it now, but we will be out
in six months and then we shall be at
liberty." The lady could not divine
grounds for this prediction, but aaid
she had reason to believe that Salisbury
detests the government's local government bill and hu yielded a grudging
assent to it as the price necessary to be
paid for the Unionist support, It is not
unlikely he may dislike the prospect of
further forced marches along the Radical roads. Another element of uncertainty lies in the fact that the double
labors of the premiership and foreign
office are again telling heavily on
Salisbury's health, and he ia beginning
again to show signs of wear and (are
whicli his autumn holidays obliterated.
These dissentient Liberals who look at
Gladstone every day, and whose primo
calculation is that his age and time is
on their side, most feel embarrassed
when they extend their memoir back
to the career of Palmerston, who was
prime minister and enjoyed the highest popularity until within two days
of the completion of his eighty-first
year.

TWO HOKE OOOD INDIANS.
Helena, Mont, April 3.—Particulars reached here to day from Ashley,
of the lynching of two Indians, who

scanty supply of provisions, snd two
ponies now in possesion of a fugitive
Indian who escaped capture.

AN AMERICAN CITIZEN FORCED TO SERVE
IN  FRANCE.
Washinoton, Apl. 2.—The state de*
partment will probobly make a teat of
the right of France to impress naturalized Americans into the army. John
Feuchier, a citizen of Nevada, who, on
returning to visit France, hia native
country, after being naturalised
in America, wu arrested and forced to
enlist in the French army. Soma
correspondence concerning the eats
hu been held between the two. i*<Hm-.
tries, andwu made publio by the state
department yesterday. Iv appears
from this that Feuchier wu arnated
at St. Martin d'Entannes, uu the 24th
December, 1886. After being held in
prison until Jan, 22nd, 1887, he wu
taken to Cohors and enrolled in the
7th infantry regiment of the Snd battalion. Iu April of that year Minister
HcLane, acting under the instructions
of Secretary Bayard, demanded hia release on the ground that Feuchier had
become a citizen of the IT. 8. Flourens, the French minister, replied under date of June 14, 1887, thtt the
matter had been referred to the war
ministry and Gen. Ferron, the head of
that department, held that tht
claim of the U. S. raised on the question as to the personal statu, of Feuchier could onlv be decided by a court
of justice. If Feuchier would product
the judgmont of a French court giving
him relents from military obligation!
the tar department would discharge
him.

of war, but agreed to take the foreign
portfolio. It ia probable that Goblet
will become minister of education,
Lockroy minister of commerce, and
Flouquet minister of interior.

STRIKERS ON THEIR EAR.
Chicaoo, April 2.—Nothing hu ytt
resulted from the meeting of tht St
Pn rl* Fort Wayne strikers, whioh
wus to be hold this morning, neither
Iraa the Panhandle taken any aotion ia
regard to handling "O." can. Burlington continues an aggressive position, and at 9 o'clock notified tht polico that it was going to deliver a train
of freight to the Michigan Central
Railway. Soon after the Burlington
train, buttling with Pinkerton detectives and various railway officials,
pushed out. Beyond the usual curtee
and cries of "scabs," then wss no hot-
tile demonstration, and the tan
were delivered to the HichiganOtntral.
The Michigan Central switchmen then
notified the yard muter tint they
wi.uld not handlt "Q" oan. A strike
on this road will, therefore, bt precipitated whenever an order is given to
move the cars now in tht yarn. It It
thought thia order it rare to oome

A new instrument culled the tol-
untagraph is just now engaging considerable attention in scientific circles. It iB the invention of Prof.
Elisha Gray, of Chicago. The telautograph has many advantages
over both telephone and telegraph,
and, if successfully applied, will
doubtless come to be extensively employed both in business and social
circlet, Its inventor says: "By
my invention you can sit down at
your office in Chicago, take a pencil
in your hand, write a message to me,
and as your pencil moves a poncil
heroin my lnboratoy moves simultaneously and forms the same let
ters and words in the samo way.
What you write in Chicago is instantly reproduced here infac simile.
You may writo in any language;
write in shorthand if you like; use
a code or cipher; no matter, a fac
simile is produced here. If you wish
to draw a picture it is the same; tho
picture is reproduced here. The
artist of your paper can, by this device, telegraph his pictures of a railway wreck or other occurrence just
as a reporter telegraphs his description in words. The two pencils
move synchronously, and there is no
reason why a circuit of 500 miles
iriiiiiiot be worked as easily as one of
ten miles. The telantagraph will
supplant the telephone for many
purposos, for it will have marked advantages over it. It will be noiseless, less affected by induction, and
no misunderstanding can result." It
is stated that tho price of the instruments will not be more than 810
to "525 each. The telantagraph is
provided with cull bells, similar to
thoso used on the telephone.
One can scarcely determine from
the reports whether the emperor of
Germany is going to recover from
his present ailment or not. The
probabilities are that his life will be
cut short, and that his enjoyment of
the distinguished honor of being
ruler of one of the greatest nations
on earth will be brief. The reports
from medical advisers are of a very
contradictory kind. Indeed, thero
seems to be very little doubt but
much jealosy and bad blood has
arisen among the doctors. The German-physicians are mad because a
doctor from Scotland was engaged
for tht emperor while he was crown
prinoe, and look upon it as a slur
cut upon their own professional
skill. But the emperor and empress
do not seem to have lost confidence
in Dr. McKenzie, and the professional jealosy of the Germans is
more irritating than hurtful. It is
quite likely the emperor intends to
spend his remaining days in working out for Germany a new constitution that shall secure the empire
against the danger of designing
rulers.,. Of late years Prinoe Bismarck and the Emperor William
have kept a very firm grip on the
reins of power, and have shown no
tendency to slacken their hold. But
the new emperor is evidently disposed to increase the liberty of the
subject and place in the constitution such safeguards as will make it
impossible for the rulers to run the
affairs of atate cont -ary to the
wishes' of the people. If he lives to
accomplish this one great undertaking, the memory of his brief reign
will linger, perhaps, longer in the
hearts ot a grateful nation than that
of his august parent. Thero is no
doubt bat the emperor is favorable
to liberal principles, and the empress
is sun to give him tbe fullest support of her influence.
We believe it may be accepted as
a settled foot that Canada is to be
delivered from the disadvantages of
bf the clause giving tho C. P. R. a
monopoly in the northwest. All
reports from Ottawa, Montreal,
Winnipeg, and olsewhere, both by
telegraph and otherwise, confirm
this belief. The exact conditions of
the surrender have not yet, probably, become known. It was announced not long ago that tho syndicate was to receive $14,000,000 as
the price of monopoly; but this has
been contradicted, and it is now
stated that the government is to
take back from the company 7,000,-
000 tores of land for which it is to
pay 110,000,000 in cash. This is
much more likely than the other.
Fourteen millions wonld bo a very
large price indeed to pay for a privilege tho surrender of which would
undoubtedly be of great benefit to
the company itself, inasmuch as it
will certainly stimulate the settlement and development of the country in suoh a way as nothing else
could. Ont of the results cf cancelling the monopoly clause will be
the abandonment of the polioy of
diwllowanct whioh has been punned
by tht federal government in Manitoba Mid British Columbia. This,
tre think, removes all doubt about
the construction of the Westminster
Southern Bailway, which is to connect thit city with the railway system of the Peoifio ooast at tho
American boundary line. It has
been understood that disallowance
wm the only obetecle standing in tho
way of the oonitruotlon of this line;
and, ttyt haying been removed, we
mty look for the commencement of
operations in the near future. The

On May 11,1840. the fint passenger train

Do tickets were sold, either on train or at tho

H'tuployed for this purpose. His name uus
', Reynolds. The record shews that for
(lonthi one train from Hartford to New

iBVeral times the record says: -"Collected
rom Mr, Negro on outside, $1." "Collected
/rom Mr. Irishman outside, $1." Similar en-
,vies occur froqnently in the book, and the
 'itference to tbat no colored person waa nl-
Hkowed to occupy a seat in the car, and tbat

joke.   He took a "■.•t*iwlcr"(lour-wheel cab)
ftcr iiiidnifilit nt I'i'-iadilly circus logo to
his lodgings out in Jlayswnter. Iteiuember-
ing the tita'.ene.i*- of the "lost sovereign"
dodge, lio thought it would hardly "-go
down with n bright and cunning London
cabby, but resolved to tiy juit for tbo fun
of iu Juat na they came in front ofapob-
iMinttta i fow doors from hli home ibe

mul ordered the driver to halt. "1 say, cabby, I've dropped a 'sov' in the straw on the
bottom of the conch; just pull up al tbat
'pub' till I run in and get a match io thit 1
enn find the coin."
"All right, sir," said tht eabby, ind pilled
'in opposite tho door of the tavern.
My friend alighted and bad taken acarcely
threo stepfl in the direction of ibe "pub''
when lo 1 Mr. Cubby whipped on hia horses
und dew away.into the foggy night, carrying
with him (as he supposed) that sovereign
snugly concealed lu the straw,
The gentleman, having now toaobed his
lodgings and without expense, smiled aod
wickedly gloated over tlio brilliant success

Tk« CaplUao Dam
A ihort time ago a paragraph appeared in these columns stating that
floods had carried away the dam erected by the Capilano water company
north of Burrard Inlet. We have ti
letter from Mr. H. B. Smith, the resident engineer, stating that there was
no foundation for the report. The
engineer saya that the Hoods in Cnpil-
ano River have demonstrated the substantial character of tho work, inasmuch ns it completely withstood tho
strain to which it waa subjected. The
only damage done was a slight undermining of one of the abutments, consequent upon the fact that the contractor had not timo to connect it with
the river bank. Tho whole damage,
tho engineer saya, was repaired in a
few days, and the structure will bo entirely coinplotod by the cud of thia
week.
The XarwegUms Unit Ala.
Tho Norwegian colonists seem to
have made up their minds to locnto
themselves permanently in tho immigrant sheds, probably for tho reason
that tho ront is low and an occasional
day's work suffices to koup them in
food. On Saturday afternoon three of
the men got drunk and one of them
struck tho wife of another man, which
was the signal fur a general fight. Tho
three men were soon rolling on the
floor striking each other viciously, and
within a few minutes they were covered with blood. The noise mado by
the fightinc, coupled with the cries of
the women and children, attracted
Capt. Scoullar, Mr. Stamford and Mr,
Shiles to the Bheds, and it was with
much difficulty these gentlemen wero
able to Btop the progress of thu fijj-lit
till the polico wero notified. Ole Lie
waB arrested and conveyed to the lockup, he being tlio originator of tho
trouble. Later in tKe evening two of
these Norwegians met in Mr. Roes'
boot storo, while thn auction sale was
in progress, where, aftor a moment's
conversation, one of them assaulted the
other and a fight would have been the
result but for tho intervention of the
bystanders. The man who committed
the assault, Christian Nelson, was arrested and taken to tho lockup. Both
men wore a species of dirk when taken
into custody, and it is said thoy are
never without these weapons. This
morning Police Magistrate Atkinson
fined Ole Lie $2.50 and costs or 10
days in default, and Nelson $5.00 and
coBts or 20 days in default. Nelson
was also charged with carrying a concealed weapon, on which charge he was
remanded for sentence. These Norwegians are becoming moro and more
of a nusiance every week, aud (he city
would be well rid of them. They do
not show any inclination to strike out
for themselves, but seem to be ' contented to remain in the immigrant
Bheds as long as the government will
allow them to do so. If they had attended properly to the fishing business
on Plumper's Pass there was no reason
why a good living could not have been
obtained, but it -seems they are tno indolent to work steadily as long as government assistance, iu any form, is
given.. The government hus d'me
more for those people than they havo
deserved, and, as tho Norwegians have
shown themselves unworthy of further assistance, the government should
rid the immigrant sheds of them and
force them to prov ido for their own
distance.
WminiliiKler vs. Vancouver.
The long talked of football match
between tlie clubs of the two terminal
cities came off thia afternoon on the
cricket grounds. The Vancouvurites
arrived on the 1 o'clock train and were
accompanied by abuut 100 of their
friends and supporters, prominent
among whom were the fair sex, who
came over to urge thoir champions on
to victory. A great many people
gathered on the grounds to witness the
match nud much enthusiasm wns displayed. The fair sex of Westminster
turned out en masse, and both by
word and look encouraged our boys to
win. Tho Vancouver club waa represented by tho following players: -Sin
clair, Cliuion, C. J. Johnson, F.
Johnson, Harvey, Tatlow, Boulthee,
Williams, Brown, Mowat, Holt,
Graves, Watson (captain). Westminster was championed by Walker, Wii
son, Hambur, Lewis, Paikes, Tumor,
Cunningham, Clute, Olapoott, Black,
.1 onc8,Corbett,Piekles,Lister (captain.)
The game commenced at 3o clock,
Vancouver playing up the Bold and
with tlie wind. From tho first tlie
match was hotly contested and the
play was good on both sides. Lister,
Lewis and Hamber played in splendid
form, especially Lister, who never lot
a chance pass nim or made a mlta
play. For Vancouver, Clinton, Johnson and Watson did splendid work.
Towards tho latter part of the first hnlf
Lewis Bccured the ball iu mid-
lield and hy a brilliant run
secured a touchdown for Westminster.
This was the signal for an outburst
of enthusiasm from the spectators, and
cheer after cheer went upas he crossed
the line. The "try" was a failure, hut
tho ball narrowly escaped passing be
tween the goals. At 3:45 time was
called.
When play was resumed in tho second half, the tide turned in favor of
Vancouver, whose heavy weights began
to tell on their lighter opponents, but
the game was kept up with increasing vigor, and Westminster
made a gallant struggle to hold
tlie lead obtained at the first
half. The struggle though a splendid
one was in vain. Vancouver first won
a "try," and then a goal.and almost at
tho last moment Westminster was
obliged to " touchdown" for
safety. When the ball wns
sent out into tho field again
Westminstor went at it with a rush and
by shoor forco and hard fighting carried it close to thoir opponents' goal.
It looked ai if our boys were going to
get another touch down, but at this
moment time was called and tbe game
closed with Vancouvor tho winner.
Mr. St. George Hammersloy acted as
referee, and Mr. J. W. Harvey ni
umpire. _.

German Hatred mt Rritnln.
The New York Sun's Berlin special
says: A man of 29 years, erect, square-
shouldered, lithe, powerful and austere,
strode out of the railway station here
yesterday after seeing a batch of royal
guests depart. He had a strong, heavily-lined and moody face. The guards
presented arms and a brilliant retfnue
of generals hurried aftor the masterful looking German. It was the Crown
Prince, who will soon be Emperor of
the nation uf warriors. Tho waiting
multitude at sight of him gavo a singlu
yoll that came from their very hoarts.
Tho prince listened with a rapt look,
thon drew back hia head with a sudden
motion and showed his teeth in a smile
of savage exultation. Tho fierce light
that beats about the German throne
leaves the dumb and sickly monarch
in the shadow plodding slowly on towards the near und inevitable end,
while the stalwart, warlike and aggressive figure of Crown Prince William
out witii a vivid distinctness. Tho
namo of the coming Emperor is beard
in the councils of all sovereigns and
diplomats of Europe Not since the
first Napoleon hns a young man wielded such tremendous power as will fall
to the lot of this headstrong, violent
and revengeful prince. He will have
two million men and two million muskets at his back. He hates the English and he hates the Jews; so do the
German people. Thoy detest their
English empress because she makes her
children talk English, and has pro-
vailed upon the Emperor to have an
English physician. They have tried to
mob Dr. Mackenzie, and they look
coldly at Frederick III. because lie
spends the last hours of his waning
life ennobling men of Semitic blood.
They adore the very name of the coming ruler, who has all their prejudices
intensified a thousand fold. Hia aversion to the English extends to his own
mother.
The Doundnry Hallway.
The people of Seattle have from the
first placed much faith in the Seattle &
West Coast road, and for the reason
they saw that through it close, all rail
communication was possible with the
cast. A reason for this faith, perhaps,
has been the fact that tlio lino is one
easy of construction, and the country
through which it is to run is of a nature
that admits of rapid railroad building
when energetic men with money aro
behind the project. Although work on
the road was recently discontinued for
a time, the people have all along felt
that it was but temporary. Such, indeed, is the fact. The road is to be
built, and at once. Papers were signed last evening by which the Seattle,
Lako Shore & Eastern Railroad assumes control of the Weat Coast road.
This transfer means that the work of
construction of tbo West Coast Railway will be resumed aud vigorously
prosocuted to completion and a junction with the Canadian Pacific Railway. Inasmuch as the iinunci.il backing of the Lako Shore & Eastern company is now ample, tho rond to the
Canadian border will be pushed forward
as fast ns men and money can do it.
Workmen will at onco bo set at work
completing tho unfinished sec ion of
tho lino which is now graded nearly to
Snohomish. Tho work of construction
will be in charge of the well-known
contractors, Thomas Earle A-Co. They
will immediately put a laigo forco of
men at work. The road will be completed and trains running to Snohomish by the 16th of May next, and by
January 1, 1889, iho road will be completed to a junction with tlie Canadian
Pacific. Thero is now on hand enough
rails to lay the traok to Snohomish, so
that as the road is already uraded nearly to that city, tho work of completion
involves but littlo mora than the laying
of the ties and rails. As the road is
now a part of the Seattle, Lake Shore
and Eastern system, the latter will
supply its new line with rolling stuck,
a supply of which is now on its way to
this city. New engines and cars both
for the equipment of the Wost Coast
and the further equipment of tho main
line will be added as soon as opportunity .is offered for their use.—Seattle

The Medicine for Liver and Kidney
Complaint.—Mr. Victor Auger, Ottawa,
writes: "I take great pleasure iu recommending to the general public parmelee's I'ifls, as a cure for Liver and Kidney Complaint, I have doctored for the
last three years with leading physicians,
and have taken many medicines which
were recommended to me without relief,
but after taking eight of Parmelee's
Pills I was quite relieved, and now I feel
as free from the disease as besore I was
troubled.
Mothers!
Castoria is recommended by physicians
for children teething. It is a purely vegetable preparation, its ingredients are
published around eaoh bottle. It is
pleasant to the taste and absolutely harmless, It relieves constipation, regulates
the bowels, quiets pain, cures diarrha-a
and wind colic, allays feverishness, destroys worms, and prevents convulsions,
soothes the child and gives it refreshing
and natural sleep. Castoria is the child-
reus' panacea—the mothers' friend. 35
doses, 35 cents. dwmh20ml
Rev. J. -McLaurin, Canada Baptist
Missionary to India, writes: "During
our stay in Canada, wc have used Dr.
Thomas' Eclectric Oil with very great
satisfaction. Wc are now returning to
India, and would like very much to take
some with us, for our own nee and to
give to the diseased heathen.
When Baby was siok, we gate her Castoria,
