current Events and Opinions-
Railway travel in India hnsnmtiy
curious features. Tlie Brahmins*
who objected to the innovation on
the ground that pilgrims would travel by rail instead of on foot, an*
now using the new mode of travel
themselves. They even occupy the
same cars vfith ordinary mortals,
nnd thus a levelling blow has been
struok at caste assumptions. In this
wny tho railroad is of great social
as woll as commercial importance.—
Tndk
The British fair traders are quarreling among themselves; and the
proposal to tax corn is the cause.
Already members are leaving the
ranks of the fair trade league, because they find it impracticable to
carry their theories to any pructical
issue, Mr. Coleridge Kennard, the
tory candidate for Salisbury city,
has withdrawn from the league because he found thu feeling among
his contemplated constituents so,
hostile to a com tax. If the cities
will not consent to a bread tax,
what hope is there that the farmers
will consent to protection on manufactured goods 1 None ! The fact
is now evident which throughout
was contended, that the difficulties
of the fuir traders commenced the
moment they began to discuss the
general principles much less the
details of their proposals.—Ottawa
Free Press,
At first we wero inclined to urgo
that Riel should not bo made a martyr of by execution, and this would
probably have become the prevailing sentiment of the country but
for the dishonorable and successful
effort of the liberals of this province
to embarrass tho government by the
introduction of rnco feeling into tho
question, and so pub what might
have been a generous leniency in
the light nf a weak yielding to a
rude sectional demand. When tliis
was done we declared that the government should be supported in embarrassing extremities, and wo
should stand by it in whatever
course it took.. The position of the
Ontario liberals has been worse than
that of those of this province. They
have carefully avoided expressing a
decided opinion on tho question,
holding themselves in readiness to
blame whatever may be done.—
Montreal Witness.
The cattlemen who tried so hard
to convince President Cleveland
that it was impracticable to move
their stock nre now complying with
the order. The impression has become strong that President Cleveland is a hard man to butt oft' the
track when he has fully made up
Ins mind to stay. There does not
seem to be any influence that he
either courts or fears. A number
of prominent public men, including
United States senators and governors of states, swept down upon tho
wliite house, expecting, doubtless,
to carry their point by the weight
of their names. But the president
calmly told them that the interests
they represented were opposed to
tho interests of the public, and being so must give way. It took ten
days to convince the cattlo syndicate that they had no more influence in the white house than uny
other half-do/on men, but since they
became convinced of that fact they
have behaved quito well.—S. F,
Chronicle. •

Chinese; why not now announce to
the world that we propo^ to Ameri-
canize our present foreign-born population by one or two generations of
purely American breeding and education, before admitting anv more*
and relieve our inBtituikm-*, our
society, and our publio sentiment of
the strain we have hitherto borne,
before it wrenches th6 national
structure entirely out of its original
shape 1~Overfond Monthlf.; IIv,
Full reports of Mr. Parnell's
speech at the! Dublin banqi^on
the 24th of August justify the conclusions df English leaders as to its
purport. Mr. Parnell says the
measure of mensures in the Irish
program mo is the "restoration of an
Irish parliament, the concession of
legislative independence." Again
he says: "I hope that it may not
be necessary in the new parliament
to devote our attention to subsidiary
measures, and that it may be possible for us to lmvo a programme
and a platform with only one plank,
and that one plank of national independence." Iu outlining the work
of an IriBh parliament Mr. Parnell
hints at a protective tariff, to enable
Irish artizans to supply the home
market. Nothing occurs in the
speech which in words demands a
separation from the British crown.
The national independence ho speaks
of is apparently realized by the
erection of an Irish parliament, with
a recognition of its right to make
local laws. The complete independence of the Irish purliamenton local
questions would, however, present
an anomalous condition of affairs.
The Irish parliament might, for example, if so disposed, enact laws
opening its markets to American
goods on more favorable terms than
to English productions. It might
do many things which would be inconsistent with its existence as an
integral part of the British empire
The independence which Mr. Parnell
proposes to work for looks to separation as a natural result of the new
relation. Two legislative heads to
one nation are impossible. Ths
national legislature must be supreme
iu a certain range of legislation, to
avoid confusion and conflict. The
American States, jn "forming a
moro perfect union," voluntarily
handed over to congress legislation
on a certain class of subjects. No
State can treat with a foreign power,
pass a law restricting trade among
the States,. nor coin money, , it
does not appear from Mr. Parnell's
programme that he proposes to place
similar limitations upon the powers
of the Irish parliament.—3, F.
Chronicle.
The effect of the wholesale immigration of the lower nnd more ignorant classes of foreigners into our
country has been two-fold. In the
economical souse, wu have greatly
gained in wealth from the increase
in tho numbor of the laboring and
producing classes; but in the social
and political sense, we have greatly
suffered from the vast concourse of
foreign-born people, whose presence
has changed or ignored the once prevailing Amorican ideas. We have
taken in this foreign element faster
than we can assimilate it, Consequently, wherever it preponderates,
as in most of the lnrge citios, it has
crowded the American element out
of the control of publio aflWim, and1
fostered bossism, corruption und,
fraud to such un extent that municipal government in the United
States is generally conceded to be n
failure. Moreover, public lauds of
good quality, throughout our vast
domain, have been becoming scarce
for somo years, We have now none
to spare for the pauper classes of
Europe. We have not enough left
to supply tho demands of our own
young men for moro than1 two more
generations. Why, then, continue
to sell or give lauds and provide
money to half a million of foreign
immigrants per annum ? We havo
begun a. partial exclusion of   the
The finning No Good.
Ottawa, Sep. 0. —- Sir Frederick
MiJdlatun has been interviewed respecting the use of the Gatling gun,
and is not very onthusiaitic upon tbe
subject. It might be useful in firing
at a body of men crowing a roadway,
bat oven sharpshooter* then would do
more deadly work. For Indian war*
fare, he thinks, the Gatling gun is
absolutely useless. It surprised thu
Indians out' hod no eflect. The Oat-
ling was fired at a house of one inch
plank, behind whioh the rebels were
lurking. There were fifty women nud
children in the house nt the time but
this, was not known till afterward*.
Only une allot Out of eighteen .fired
struck the houao and nobody wna hurt.
During the whole campaign only one
mun was found who might have been
shut by the Catling.
Storing Potatoes.
Potatoes are best stored in a dij,
cout, cellar, when the temperature cau
be kept by ventilation nt nbout 40 degrees. The flour should be of planks,
raised throe inches from the ground,
and laid with one-inch spaoes between
thom for ventilation. The bins should
bo about eight feet long, four feet
wide and deep, made of loose-barred
partitions, wired together at the earners, A bin of thit mt will hold one
hundred bushels, and with such a one,
it is very easy to know precisely how
muoh the crop amounts to. A box to
hold n bushel will bo found a great
convenience in gathering and storing
tlio potatoes. It it made eighteen
inches lanj;, fifteen inches deep in the
clear a' tho ■'dei, aud ten inches
wide, atl inaido mcisuromenta; that
holding two thousand and seven hundred cubio inches, or thirteen cubic
inches (about two good aized potatoes)
over a heaped bushel, which ii two
thouaand six hundred and eighty-teven
inches. These boxes can be set une
Upon another, and then havo a apace
left betweon the potatoes, and are
thus well adapted for use in storing a
part of ihe atop, or a small quantity
for domestic use. The barred aide*
and bottom ttocuro abundant ventilation. The bins in the cellar should
have n spuce of four inches between
the end aud the wall, and between the
sides; thit is easily made by placing a
short rail between thom,*—American
Agriculturist.
It ia stated that the Czar's morbidness concerning Nihilism is increasing
daily, and that, aa a result hit miml it
aliiuiat unhinged' with dread. He
gives uo crodenco at all to the penis*
tiint assertions of hit police that
Nihilism is uruthed out.

uny military authority that thc
defence of Victoria uud Esquimalt
would not be a sufficient protection
for thc rest of the province. When
the Colonist brings forward suoh
things as the letter of Gen. Miles
and attempts to distort it into proof
of its absurd theory, it shows very
clearly the weakness of its cause.
Vfrdiirsriny Morning, Ocl. J, MM.
Full particulars respecting tho
thrilling occurrences which lately
took place nt Farwell seem tb indicate that Mr. Sproat, the representative of provincial authority, has
completely vindicated himself and
covered his province with glory.
The Dominion oflicers have made
an unconditional surrender, and
there is good reason to hope now
for permanent peace.
There is a great denl of dissatisfaction in this city on nccount of
the extraordinary course pursued
by his excellency the governor-general in passing by our very door
without calling. The people oi the
Royal Oity are not by any means
thin skinned, but thoy cannot help
regarding his excellency's uction as
a slight, however otherwise it may
havo been intended. His excellency
would have met with a most hearty
welcome if he liad seen fit to visit
this city in the natural way, but if
he should even now return to see
us we nre afraid the reception will
be very much lacking in enthusiasm
Home More Foolishness.
Unless the Victoria Colonist finds
better arguments than it has put
forward in the discussion of tho
military defences for this province,
it may as well save itself at once
from the prospect of deep humiliation. It has all along contended
that nothing moro was needed for
the defence of British Columbia
than that Victoria and Esquimalt
should be defended; and because
Thk Columbian took exception to
that view and advised that New
Westminster, Burrard Inlet and
Nanaimo required defence as well
as the Colonist's dunghill, our '
tensely sectional" cotemporary keeps
on developing bis muscle. Lately
he discovered a letter from Gen.
Miles, of tho TJ. S., in which that
oflicer expresses the opinion that if
the two entrances to Puget Sound
were properly protected the whole
sound wouiu o*u u..*~ *-.„... ..*■■.
The plan of protection is to place
u fort at each sido of the entrance
to Admiralty Inlet, and a fovt at
the entrance tot Deception Pnss.
The Colo)iist grasps eagerly at this
letter from Gen. Miles and attempts
to manufacture out of it some proof
of his own pet theory. "It will be
seen," says our intensely sectional
cotemporary, "that it is the fortification of the entrance to tho sound
upon which stress is laid by Gen.
Miles. Nothing is said of fortifying Tacoma, tlie terminus of the
Northern Pacific railway; because
as all men whose profession is war
will tell the reader, when the enemy
has got within the fortress he can
turn your own gans upon you. An
enemy tliat can capture Port Town-
sond will hold the key to Puget
Sound; and the enemy that can force
his way past Victoria and Esquimalt
on his way to the mainland will find
tho door open to the coal treasures
of Nanaimo and tho lumber mills of
Burrard Inlot. Let the door be
guarded successfully, and the rest
of the province will be able to take
care of itself." Tlie application of
the suggestion contained in Gen.
Miles' letter to the Colonist's sectional scheme must be incomprehensible to uny person acquainted
with the circumstances. Between
the defence scheme of Gen. Miles
and that of the Colonist there is
nothing in common at all. The
entrance of Deception Pass is less
than a mile in width. The mouth
of Admiralty Inlet is about four
miles, and with a fort at each sido
tho distance to be covered by the
guns would be only two miles,
There would bo no difficulty in protecting a body of water whose entrances are so easily guarded. But
the case of British Columbia is very
different. From Victoria across
the strait is twenty miles, and as
the othor side is American territory thoro could be no British fort
there. No works of defence at
Victoria or Esquimalt could prevent hostile fleets from passing up
the strait to the Fraser, Burrard
Inlet, or Nanaimo. It follows,
therefore, that the defence of Victoria nnd Esquimalt does not mean
the defence of British Columbia,
and the Colonist's intensely sectionnl
theory is obviously worthless. We
have never lost sight of the importance of defending Victoria and
Esquimalt, but we maintain that
there are other points on the mainland and island whero defence is
quite as important; and we assert
without fear of  pontradiotion by

KWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORU.
Salt Lake, Oct. 2.—Edward Brain
was convicted of unlawful cohabitation
today. His latest wife, a Danish girl,
testified frooly concerning their relations.
Brain made n long statement to tlie
court maintaining the truth of his gospel. He said lie knew it by direct revelation from God to himself. His covenants were made for eternity. Ho would
stand by thom at all hazards. Judge
Zane reminded him tliat two of liis wives
in this eternal covenant which lie spoke
about were already divorced from aim,
his first wife being dishonored in hor
old age. To talk of this being an eternal covenant under the divine command
wus blasphemy. He was tired hearing
such hypocritical cant. The sentence
was six mouths in jail and $300 fine.
Constantino i-i.e, Oct. 2.—Great activity prevails to-day iu all tho various
bureaus of the war oflices. Troops nre
rapidly arriving hero ami aa quickly dispatched to Tripoli, Salonicn, and Dedn-
gatch. Marshall Tonad Pasha has
started for Adrianople.
London, Oct. ".—Sir Charles Vf
Dilke, president of the local governmont
board under Gladstone's administration,
was married to-day to Mrs. Mark Patterson, at Chelsea. The ceremony was conducted quietly and without display. Tho
church was c-wded with friends of tiie
bride and groom, many notable persons
being present. Joteph Chamberlain
acted as groomsman. The weather was
bright and a crowd cheered the couple
as they were leaving the church.
Washington, Oct. 3.—The postmaster
general has decided that the special do*
lively of letters shall not be mado on
Sundays.
Bert.fv, Oct. 3.—Germany 1ms acknowledged Spam's claims to the occupation of Yap. In return Spain lias
granted Gouiany the free navigation of
tho water in and around the Caroline
TslandB, together with free commerce
with the inhabitants and the right of
having a coaling station at. one of the
islands. The mediation of the Pone is
now unnecessary, as the affair has been
settled to the satisfaction of both powers.
Copeniiaokn, Oct. 3.— The Ci:ar today received the Bulgarian deputation
at* the I)anish royal country palace of
Marielynst, nt Elsinorc. The mission of
the deputation was to secure the Czar's
recognition of thc union of Bulgaria and
Koumelin. The lnembets of the deputation refused to state whether their object had hem fully accomplished. They,
however, expressed themselves very
well satisfied with the result of the--
interview with the Czar.
Constastinoi'l1-:, Ocb. 3.— A number
of corespondents have endeavored io
obtain some information from the ambassadors of tlie powers respecting the
probable outcome of thc conference
which will meet ou Monday to consider
the Komneluui question, bat their efibrts
have beon iu vniii, ha the ambassadors
are very reticent on all topics relating to
events :i the Balkans.
ViESNA, Oct. 3.—Dispatches received
western frontier of Buljja-ia between
Servian and Bulgarian troops, and that
seven men were killed and il) wounded.
The report has not been confirmed. Both
Bulgaria and Servia have since the Hou-
mekan diiheulty largely 'not-eased their
forces ou the frontier.

YESTERDAY^DISPATCHES.
New York, Oct. 5.—(Jen. Low Wallace, ex-minister to Turkey, in an interview in regard to the Balkan difficulty,
said: I don't th: ik any action will bo
taken by Turkey until thc signatory
powers meet. The sultan hns too much
common-sense to rash haphazard into
war. He will await the issue of the
conference, and :n case of disag-'oement
between the powers probably the wholo
of Europe will be swept into hostilities,
Hussia, France and Italy on one side,
aud England and Austria on tho other.
Germany, guided by Bismarck, will endeavor to act as mediator. Austria
would immediately take possession of
Bosina and Herzcgovinia; Hussia would
occupy Bulgaria and RoumeUa. Thc
conference is most likely to result in a
statu (juo. One of the world's greatest
wars will happen before tho crescent disappears from the Bouphorus,
OOKSTAMTJKOPLB, Oct. (i.—'i'ho report
of the ambassadors to the powers on the
Koumclinii difficulty indicates that the
tenor of the communication to bo addressed to Turkey and Bulgaria will prevent a conflict, leaving to the powers the
duty of solving thc question.
Paiuh, Oct, (b—The Repubjique Fran-
caise iu nn editorial to-day on the results
of the elections says: "Over one-third of
the members of tlie chamber of deputies
are conservatives. This is a serious evil."
It then implores thu republicans to unite
on candidates in districts where second
ballot') are necessary and presorve the
integrity of tho republic.
A Certain Result.— In all disturbed
aotion of tho Stomach, the Bowels, the
Livor or the Kidneyh the result of tuning Burdock Blood Bitters is certain to
afford prompt benefit to tho sufferer,
Burdock Blood Bitters cure when other

Pom Moodv, Oct. 0.—His Excellency the Governor-General of Canada
and suite arrivod here by special train
at 10:40 this forenoon, "fliey were
received by prominent citizens. An
address from the people uf Port Moudy
was presented by Mr. J. T. Scott, and

Coal Harbor Lands.—Under an
agreement with the C, P. R, syndicate, the local syndicate uf landholders
at Burrard Inlet suspended the sale of
lots at Granville until December lst,
to enable the railway company to prepare mnpa of the property conveyed to
them and which they wish to place on
the market at the same timu as the
other. It is now rumored that the
timo for reopening the sale of tho syndicate's lots has "been or will bo extended to a later date than the lst
Deoember.—Colonist,
Canadian Currency.—Oue peculiar
result of the withdrawal of une and
two dollar greenbacks from circulation
is an unexpected prevalence uf Canadian bank notes in nll tho Northern
States,; In many localities they are
more oom mon than American notes,
and they are gradually forcing their
way into a wider and a wider circulation. This is a must fortunate thing
for tho Canadians. It virtually makes
us their creditors. We hold their
promises tu pay, and ure glad enough
to get them. It would pay the Dominion government to set tho printing
presses at work, and turn out paper
money as rapidly as possible. If the
bulk of the issue is to drift at once into
the United States, Canadian finances
could stand the inflation.— Seattle Fast.
Spallumcheen.—The thrashing is
abuut dono here, many of the farmers
nut intending to thrash this fall, there
being no outlet for grain or flour at
the presont high rate for froight on
the railway. Tho grain is of excellent
quality and well secured, although a
lighter yield than usual in consequence of a very dry summer. Messrs.
Lumby and Bennett thrashed four
hundred and seventy thousand pounds
of grain, mostly wheat, Messrs. Clinton snd Murray two hundred and
sixty thousand pounds, and Messrs.
Burns and Wiohera euch about the
same quantity. A mounted police
coustaho is sadly needed here. There
is a great deal of Indian whiskoy selling going un, and there are Chinese
gambling dens frequented by Indians
and a low class uf whites.--Sentinel.

Stephens. Sundry accounts were
passed aud specifications were adopted
fur wurk on Queen's avenue and St.

suds and roots in the ravine. The
clerk waB instructed to communicate
with Mr. Alexander nnd others at
Granville with a view to securing cooperation in obtaining a grunt of 040
acres for race courso. The mayor was
authorised to purchase a suitable flog
for the use of the council.
Scientific Joking.—The London
correspondent of thu Toronto Globe
gives the following laughable incident:
"The nil until meoting of the British
Association which closed the other day
was extremely prosaic. Several journalists fore present at the elosing dinner, iind one of them with moro humor
and courage thnn the rest enlivened
the proceedings in a nuvel manner.
He procured a bean, stuck small fibres
into it for legs, and with two small
beads made eyes. This wonderful
construction was thon carefully placed
nn a* plate, covered with a wine-glass,
and passed around the tahle for inspection labelled "newly discovered insect."
Every one of the mm of science was
deluded, und two presidents uf tec-
tlons warmly discussed tho species of
(ho new bug to the greut aimisomsnt
of those in tho secret. Finally the
wicked journalist exploded all the
previous learned hypotheses uf the
ptufessors, nnd amid mars uf laughter
gravely gave his uwn theories concerning thephaseoids vulgaris."
The PftfNcBsH Looms,—This fine
vessel, which has been oii Cook's ways
for some timo, has received a thorough
overhauling. Her hull has been caulked and reooppered from item to stern,
while her upper works have heen well
painted hy Messrs. Soars & Cu. The
oabina nud snloon look very handsome,
the different lints being very prettily
grouped, The engines, which wurd
taken tu pieces and cleaned, woro
found in firat-clsss order, with the exception of a few small pieces which
have been replaced. . A great convenience is added in the shape uf two
gangways nn each side of the vessel.
The old gangway, whioh is Situated in
front uf tho pilot-house, will be removed, leaving a clear deck to the bows.
This will not only be a convenience,
but will improve the forward part of
the ship, Mr. Leach, who U superin*,
tending the work, expects to have the I

days, when she will immediately be put
Marble Canon Road.—The Marble
Canon ur Hat Creek wagon .ruad,
twenty-three miles in length, Iiob been
completed and accepted by the government from the contractor, Mr, Thomas
Harkms, From those who have traveled over it, it is understood that a
splendid piece uf work haB boon made
uf the road. It starts a short distance
north of Cargyle's hotel from the Cariboo road and winds along tlie oreek
and through Marble Canon tu the Pavilion mountain farms, passing through
sume magnificent scenery and fine agricultural land. A contract will be let
by the government in n few days for
three and three-fourths miles of road,
continuing from the present contract
to a junction with the Pavilion mountain ruad at Lillooet. The construction uf this road will save tho inhabitants of Lillooet the necessity of going
north over Pavilion mountain to Clinton and (hen south ou tho Cariboo
rond to" the railway. The new road,
will save tbis roundabout, journey, and
when thb bridge contemplated is built
at Ashcroft, tlie convenience uf the
road will be greatly increased. The
cost of the road was about $11,000,
and the contractor has constructed it
in three months, one month ahead of
contract time, making a first-class
piece of work.—Colonist.

Yale, Oct. 2.—Twenty-seven car
loads of white men and Chinese left
the upper contract this afternoon, all
having been discharged on the 30th,
Tho Chinese, about seven hundred in
number, will be taken direct tu Hammond and the white meu brought to
Yale.
Yale, Oct. 3.—The train thia morn
ing from tho east brought 1000 whites
and 1200 Chinese discharged from the
upper contract, September 30. At
noon twenty cars of Chineso left for
Port Hammond where they will go into winter quarters, The railway contractor began paying off tho whites
this afternoon. The scene about town
beggars description. Saloons and
streets are full uf intoxicated men.
Residents of the town nre obliged to
bar tho doors of their dwellings in order to keep the howling throng from
forcing au entrance, Such excitement
has not been seen since I860. The
saloons nre reaping a rich harvest.
Yale, Oot. 6.—The four ur five
hundred unpaid men arrived from the
front on Saturday ovening and this
morning went to tho C. P. R. oflico
and demanded their pay. The company's books and pay-rolls not being
mado up, it |wns impossible tu pay
the men. The general superintendent being absent, the men agreed to
await his arrival. At 5:30 this evening he arrived with the governor-
general who was convoyed direct by
train to Onderdonk's private residence, where the men followed nnd,
finding Mr. Haney, demanded pay.
They threatened to tear down the
building. Mr. Haney promised to
pay them to-morrow at 11 a. m.
Serious trouble is anticipated if tho
thc men are not paid at once. [The

to the changes and improvements
whioh have taken place in the neighborhood since the day ho conducted
the first service there in the house of
Alexander McDougall. With the view
of better accommodating all parties
desirous of attending, the congregation afterwards met for several years
in the houio of William Woodward,
whose courteous and obliging mnnners
mode all that came feel as comfortable
as it is possible to feol in a private
house. Hero the small congregation
flourished, and became gradually
larger as new settlers arrived. When
a church building scbomo was proposed by Mr. Dunn in the beginning
of the present year, it was heartily
taken up, and some 9475 wero at
onco subscribed in tho immediate
vioinity. A church building committee, consisting of Messrs, Armstrong,
John Stewart, and D. Brown, was
appointed. Thoy throw themselves
into the work with great enthusiasm,
and have spared no pains and begrudged no labor in tho discharge of
the numerous duties which havu devolved upon them, It was, therefore,
very gratifying tq such a people to see
their new church completed, and its
doors, like tho heaven to whioh It
loads, thrown open to all tlmt seek or
value its blessings. Here, ns at Langley, we wero favored by the weather,
nnd not a few travelled many miles tu
be present at the opening services.
The Rev. J. S. McKay, New Westminstor, preached at both diet* af
worship, His discourses, whioh were
of a high order af merit, wore miiuh
appreciated and earnestly listened to
throughout, To him the congregation
feel muoh indebted fur uss stance rendered in more ways than one Thu
collections amounted to $04. Tbo
Mud Bay church is uf tho same dimensions as the Langley one, nnd is
similar to it also iu all its leading
features. The builders woro Messrs.
Nelson and sou, Langley, whose
thorough and substantial workmanship haa, 1 understand, given entire
satisfaction tu all parties ooncerncd,
The site was kindly oflbrod by the
Rev. J. Cliuntrill, Victoria, who owns
property in thia locality.
I have heard that the Methodist
body are about to build a central
churoh in Langley, half way between
the Fort and the Prairie school house.
It is pleasing tn see and henr of tho
oii the New Westminster route, im multiplication of churches in suitable

Provincial Exhibition.
Ouo of tho most noticeable improvements iu the late exhibition was in the
(juantity and quality of artistic exhibits, Thore were soveral very
creditable specimens of painting and
drawing shown by Mrs. C. WatBon, of
this city, Mr. S. McLuro, of Victoria,
and others. There was a large display
of needle and fancy wurk, the principal
contributors beini- Mrs. Douglas and
MrB. Hodgson. Mr. R, T. Williams,
of Victorin, showed some very handsome specimens uf book-binding and
ruling from hiB establishment. In
mado clothing Messrs A. Gregg & Son
carried off all the prizes. The display
of fruit wns not nearly so large as it
ought to havo been, but aome of the
samples wero very excellent. The
same remark applies to tho roots and
vegetables. The mangold wurtzels were
roally enormous. Grain was not well
represented. There was a largo display of butter, nnd in quality bouio of
the samples could hardly bo surpassed.
In flowers, too, the display was good.
Messrs. Douglas & Deighton showed
some fino harness, fur which they tuok
first prizo. Tlio Belmont Tanning Co.
had n line display of boots and alioes
and leather. The woodwork shown by
the Royal City Planing Mills Co. of
this oity was very complete and creditable. It consisted of duors, sash,
blinds, and turned wurk of a great
many different kinds, und of different
woods. It included two boards 43 ins.
broad aud respectively, _ and 1 inn.
thick. This collection Was much admired. Besides those enumerated
there woro many articles iu the building worthy of inspection. In the yard
thore wore some fine horses, among
which may be mentioned the stallions
exhibited by Mr. Wm. Cliadsey of
Chilliwhack, tind Mrs. Turgoose of
Vancouver Island. The stock was
poor, Dr. Tolmie showed a fine bull,
and Mr. McGillivray's bull calf was
worthy of the prizo ho enrried off.
Mr. Siniplaiid's pen of Southdowus
enrriod away nll the sheep prizes. Tho
poultry show by Mr. Wm. Perrin was
most creditable, and wuuld do honor
to any exhibition.

The Shooting Scrape.
Editor Columbian.—In your paper of
Sept. SOth, in the piece headed "Grnnitt
Creek Murder," there is n piece of injustice to Mr. Newland. I being a, witness
of the affair, Mr. Newlaud was not
drinking or In any way interfering with
tha cowboy, but happened to be looking
on at the time of the shooting and wns
hit by the bullet. I think you ought to
rectify the mistake, and it must have
beeu an unprincipled person who gave
you your information It must not be
taken for granted that all in mining
camps are without character. There are
us good and law abiding people there as
there are in any town in the province, 1
think you should have waited till after
the trial and heard the evidence iu the
case before defaming a man's character.
Respectfully. W. H. Holmes.
[In our last issue we stated that there
was no evidence tliat Mr. Newland had
been drinking or in any way misbehaving himself, and that probably he was
entirely blameless in the matter. - We
nre glad to find that our correspondent
confirms this view. It is admitted, we
believe, by all that the shooting wus accidental, and we have the cowboy's own
statement that he was under the influence of liquor at the time, and that
there wero several others with him in
the same condition.—Eu.]

Alder Grove P. o.
Editor Columbian.—In your Saturday's issue I see that some settler on the
west side of our settlement is dissatisfied with the post otlice having been
placed on the junction of the Yale trunk
road and the road to boundary line; nnd
lie wishes to have it located one mile
farther west. Now, to satisfy the settlers und public nt large that we did not
take any unfair advantage when getting
up the petition for the post otlice, I took
special pains- tq.try and meet every sot-
tier lu the vicinity, wliich I did, excepting four or five who were out hunting at
the time when I passed their way, I
have no doubt that they would have
signed it had they been ut home. But
now a store hus been opened one milu
west from the present post office, aud
several settlers in close vicinity to said
store think the post office ought to be
located there. Now, if our dissatisfied
settler will please look et thc map of our
district he will tind the post ollice is
located in'thr-most treat nil placo that
could be found and most convenient to
meet the wants of all the settlers now in
Alder Grove district. I think it is too
late in the duy for our dissatisfied settlers
to complain. Why did they not bring
iu their complaints before? When getting up the petition I tried my best to
meet the wants of every one of the settlers, and they ull seemed quite satisfied
at that time. I don't think that I am to
blame for any dissatisfaction which may
arise now. G. Lawrakck.

The experience of tho manufacturers
ofthe "Myrtle Navy" tobacco is a valuable lesson in political economy. Previous to their commencing that brand,
the tobacco made of tbo finest Virginia
leaf was always held at fancy prices,
and put up in somo fancy style of manufacture. It was thought that only the
rich would buy such tobacco, and at the
old prices none but the rich could buy it,
Thc makers of tho "Myrtle Navy" ro-
solved to strip the manufacture of the
tobacco of all its fancy costs and put
their profit at so low a rate that uo competitor could possibly undersoil them
with the same i-uality of article. From
the very Unit until now their rate of
profit has been n uniform percentage
upon the cojt. It is their enormous
sales which make their low rate of profit
a satisfactory one in the aggregate, nnd
also give them their firm hold upon the
market. Their success is an excellent
lesson for manufacturers to study over.

G. M. McNaughten,
COLONIAL HLOCK,
NEW WESTMINSTER. Advertising Onr Province-   !
Capt. Chittenden, well known all
ovor this const, is visiting custom
Canada, and while at Toronto ho mado
some interesting .statements about British Columbia to a Globe reporter, from
which wo tako the following extracts:
At Burrard Inlot he took tho railway whioh runs from that port to a
point 230 miles weat. For GO miles
tho lino runs through tho Cascade
range of mouuU.ns, Tho work is of
tho most difficult nature, und 23 miles
of this pnrt of the rond is said to have
coat §125,000 per mile. This section
contains tho second cantilever bridgo
built on tho continent of America. It
is five hundred feet long and hus threo
spans, ono of 300 feet nnd tho other
two 100 feot each. The materials aro
iron nnd stool, and the cost of tho
bridgo is over $400,000. It crosses
the Frasor Rivor. The numbor of
tunnels is unusually largo. There are
five tunnels betweon Port Moody and
Yalo, sixteen botween Yale and Lytton, six between Savona's Ferry and
Kamloops, and two botween Kamloops
and Sickamoua Narrows. The road
passes through precipitous mountains,
somo rising 3,000 or 4,0f0 feot above
tho line. Thu road runs beside the
FraBer llivor, a lnrge ond rapid stream
which flows at tho rate of 15 to 20
miles an hour between canyons, whose
perpendicular faces sometimes rise in
a height of 300 feot. Notwithstanding the engineering difficulties of tho
line tho train travelled at tho rate of
between 25 and 30 miles per hour.
The scenery ou this part of the Hno,
wild, rugged, and grand in its character, is snid to have no parallel iu the
world. There is n region extending
100 miles southward from Eagle Puss
landing, from 8 to 15 miles broad, and
embracing the best portion of the interior of British Columbia, the Spilla-
maohoon, Salmon llivev, and Okanagan valleys, which is splendidly adapted either for agricultural or stuck raising purposes. At Eagle Puss tho cap-
tain took tho atngo for Farwell, the
second crossing on tho Coiumbin, a
distance of 47 miles. Tho country
traversed is well timbered with spruce
nud pine. Bears nnd ot her game aro
abundant. At Farwell, a othor
moans of conveyance failing, Captain
Chittenden got a horse und rode
through the mountain country, following the courso of thc Ille-cille-waut
River. The country is wild, rocky,
and well timbered, containing cedars
of magnificent proportions. The valley of the Ille-cille-waut is from half
a milo to throe miles in width. The
scenery wus a constant succession of
magnificent surprises. The mountains
uro clothed in cedar, hemlock, and
pine. A ride of 25 miles brought him
to tho headquarters ot Contractor
Muir, where he stoppod ull night. Tho
next morning he resumod his journey
on foot, and, after a tramp of 35 miles,
arrived nt Stony Croek bridge, which
was theu tho western terminus of the
C. P. R. Ho took tho journey on
foot because ho wished to examine tho
country thoroughly. The result of his
observation is the opinion that the
danger from avalanches is much less
than is generally supposed, He walked
over ono avalanche, about GOO feet in
width and 60 feot deep, Another one
lay at tho base of tho mountains, gradually sliding iuto the river. Between
the avalanche aud the river there was
a space about two feet wide, and this
formed tho rather perilous path which
Capt. Chittenden was obliged to take
for some distance. In another case a
furrow enabled htm to walk under au
avalanche and soo clour to the top.
Su devious is tho course of the Ille-
cille-waut thut the railway will rt-oaa
it no less thnn thirteen times. Mr.
S. H. Sykcs, division engineer, has
hit upon a device which will vory
much diminish the danger from avalanches. At his suggestion tho line
will cross tho river, run about three
miles through a ravine and como back
to a point about two hundred feet
boyond tho starting point. Five or
six uf tho worst avalanches will bo
avoided, nad a much more level road
is obtained than by tho first survoy.
Capt. Chittenden's opinion is that not
moro than 15 miles of the road will
require protection.
"What is your opinion of tho timber resources of British Columbia?1
asked the reporter.
"There is timber enough in tho
Rocky Mountains accessible from the
Canada Pacific Railway," wns the reply, "to build a house on ovory quarter section of land in tho Northwest,
and supply the territories with timber
for a thousand years, in spite of tho
enormous quantities destroyed by forest lires. Cedar, spruce, fir, and nine
are the principal varieties. I want to
say another thing hero, and that is
that the Canadians own
THE BiaOBST fflOW.BR GARDEN
on this continent, stretching all the
way from Winnipeg to Fort McLeod,
These beautiful flowers cover not only
the prnirie, but the lower slopes of the
mountains, nnd 1 mny mention that
between Kicking Horso Lake und the
first crossing of tho Columbia River,
I rode in compnny with Professor
Macnuiu, tho eminent botanist. He
told mo that ho hnd found GO species
of flowering plants and sbru-JS in the
Rocky Mountain region alone und that
numbers of these aro unknown in any
other country. I have traversed the
hest pasture regions of North Amori
ca, including Texas, Arizona, Montana, Idaho, California, and Washington Terrilory, and I have never seen
grazing land equal to that which lies
betweon Winnipeg and tho Rockies.
There is no desert on the line of the
C. P. K. west of Winnipeg. I did
not we tivo miles of worthless prairie
country on the entire line.   There are
THREE DISTINCT CLIMATES.
In the iirst region, stretching from
the western boundary of British Co
lutnbia to the western base of the gold
mountain range, thoro is nn abundant
rain fall, and no irrigation is required.
Going westward towards Kamloops you
puss into a dryer climate, and artificial
irrigation is required. In both theso
regions tho winters uro fine, dry, and
free from storms, and the snowfall is
light. Winter lasts from November
until Maroh. Whon the Cascade
Mountains are passed, you are in the
tnoist and mild climate of thu coast,
one of the healthiest and most enjoyable in tho world, Threo weeks ia the
average length of the winters, Tlio
rainfall is greater, on the mainland
than it is on Vancouver Island, Travelling northwards, over 700 miles to
Alaska, there is no material change in
the climate except an increase iu the
rainfall, whicli becomes disagreeably
large four or live hundred miles north
of Viotoria."
"Do you think that British Coium
bia will import grain from the North
wertP
"I think that British Columbia her-
aelf eati furnish grain enough to food
at least ten times her present population."
Victoria's Disgrace.
We tako the following extracts from
the report of tho sanitary commissioners presented to tho oity council at
Victoria last week:
The members of the sanitary committee have thc honor to report that
after investigating the chargo brought
against tho owner of the property situate at the corner of Johnson and
Quadra streets, they find it to be truo,
not only in his cr.so, but in that of
others in the immediate vicinity, who
nro using pits instead of earth closets
as provided by law, and strongly recommend that a gonoral notico be served ou all persona to abate thu nuisance
within a rcnsonablo dato, or to bo dealt
with summarily, according to tho provisions of tho net.
Your committeo are also of the opinion that if tho present sanitary laws
are enforced, much of the sickness
complained of will bu averted, In the
cours of investigation your committee
havo visited various purls of tho city,
but have chiefly confined their duties
to such portions as required immediate
attention, prominent amongst whioh
uro what aru commonly known as Chineso tnd Indian quarters.
Wo find the Chinese living in tenements ovor privies, seldom or never
cleaned out, whioh, together with othor
filth accumulated in such locations,
renders the placo almost indescribable,
and cannot fnil, in u humid atmosphere, to provo the origin and distributor of pestilence and death.
Wo havo nlso to report tlio presence
of loprosy iu its most appalling form,
and in one instance woro confronted
witli ono unfortunate Chinaman whoso
feci were rotted ofl' with loprosy, and
other portions affected to a greater or
less extent; tho sinews of his arm boing
contracted and rapidly approaching thu
sume condition of rotleness ns his feet.
Iu u hovel adjoining tho miserable
creature, wo found a privy overflowing
with tilth under tho floor of the adjoining tenements, tho stench from
which is almost unbearable, and demands immediate attention, Pursuing
researches we found another cuse
of leprosy, consisting of a Chinaman
iho had been frequently arrested for
■agrancy, and, although Buffering from
tho loatliBomo disease, had beeu allow-
_ . to mingle with fellow prisoners in
jail and the community at large.
We would also respectfully refer to
a number of tenement house3, or shanties erected over and iu tho vicinity of
many of the filthy places referred to in
our report and cannot too forcibly urge
tho pulling down nnd removal of such
places us eurly as possible. Rotten
structures standing on ground deeply
saturated with the most abominable
filth cannot fail but originato every
species uf malarial disease.
Wo also find that many of tho streot
utters have become so doup from con
ant cleaning that they aro only mud-
oles for tho reception of all kind of
filth and sedimentary matter, and
would strongly recommend that wooden
guttors bo placed where most needed
without delay.
In addressing tho council on tho
ndoution of the report, Councillor Bra
den gave somo additional particulars.
He had renson to knuw, ho said, that
one of tho victims of loprosy was ir
constant communication with u friend
employed in a whito family, from
whom ho received medicines and other
things that ho was iu need of. Tho
free and promiscuous way in which
Chineso servants intermingled with
their diseased companions waa n constant source of danger. Fresh germs
of disease wero daily carried from tho
most filthy quarter of Chinatown to
the best houses in Victorin, nud the
only wonder was that it did not more
generally tako root and break out in
an epidemic of disease.
Fighting Off Death.
Conductor Frazer, of the International and Great Northern railway,
tried tu fight off death a few hours in
urdor that ho might seo his wife once
moro, He had been shot by n trump,
and hud been taken to Tyler, Texas,
in a dying condition.
"Help mo to fight back this cruel
death, boys, until my wife gets hore,"
said the dying man cheerily.
Tho doctors had already told him
that he could live but a fow hours,
With n calm courage he heard thu verdict and called all his wonderful force
to his aid in the struggle to live until
his wife arrived.
"Tell me exciting stories," he said
to the boys around his bed, "for I must
make this run till sho comes."
And the boys did laugh and tell big
stories, poor fellows, when their stout
hearts wore fllled with sad regret. The
hours sped rapidly by; the merry
voice of the conductor grew fainter
and fainter, but his courage never
faltered.
A telegram from his wifo, in answer
to ono sent to hor some iiours before,
was brought into the room and read.
She was coming on a special train; the
rond was cleared for her pnssago and
with lightening speed her train wns
nnihilating distance. What a race! A
young woman, in tho full flush of love
and a new lifo, pitted against the king
of terrors. Tlio nows nerved Frazer
for a moment, and his efforts to keep
up were renewed. A littlo Inter, anothor telegram.
"Old hoy," whispered a brakeman,
"sho will bo horo in an hour."
"Turn me over, boys," he snid.
It wns dono. Ho whispered to nn
attendant:
"Charlie, I can not run on this
schedule.   Goodbye!"
Ho was dead.
 •**>
Dow tlie Salmon Jumps.
Prof. A. Landmark, Chiof Director
of tho Norwegian Fisheries, hus published some interesting particulars of
hie studies of the capability of salmon
to jump waterfalls. Ho is of opinion
that the jump depends as much on the
height of the fall as on the currents
bolow it. If thore bo a deep pool
right under the full, where tho wator
is comparatively quiet, a u&lmon mny
jump sixteen feet perpendicularly, but
suoh jumps aro rare, and he can only
elate with certainty that it has taken
place at the Hellefua, in the Drums
rivor, at Haugsund, where two great
masts have beon placed across the
river for the study of the habits of the
snlmon, so that exact measurements
mny bo effected. The height of the
wator in the river of course varies,
but it is us a rulo, whon the salmon
aro running up stream, sixteen feot
below thosB musts. The distance between tho two is three and one-half
feot, and tho Professor states that he
has seon salmon jump from the river
below across both masts. As another
example of high jumping, he mentions somo instances of Cnrrutunk
waterfall, Reumbec, in North America.
