 g-iilg §ritteli Columbian
•atnnlay Kv.nlat. Angus. 91, MM.
Our Slums,
The facts sot but in the Columbian yesterday respecting the material rottenness and moral depravity
of the Chinese quarter in this city
ought not to be passed over without
serious attention. We cannot afford
to permit the continuance of such
a state of things. There is material
filth enough behind one of these
Chinese establishments to breed a
pestilence that might blight the
whole city. No one can tell how
soon the seeds of disease that are
germinating thore may begin to
bring forth the fruit of death. The
plague may step out at any moment,
for the forces are there which may
be the messengers of swift destruction. There is no reason why ordinary sanitary laws should not be
enforced against the Chinese. They
are herded together in defiance of
all laws of health, and as a rule
their habits are filthy; and the accumulation nf dirt found in their back
premises would not be allowed to
remain in any other part of the
city. There is a health committee,
we believe, in the council, and wo
earnestly entreat that committee to
make a personal inspection of the
back yards of Chinatown and apply
remedial measures before mischief
has been done. If any fatal results should come from their inaction, the public will certainly hold
them responsible. The moral aspect
of the Chinese question is not less
important: indeed, it is of greater
importance than the other. The
corrupting influences found in these
dens cannot be confined to the Ohinese, Indian men and women,
half-breeds, and oven white people
are enticed and ruined. Rob a man
or woman of moral character, and
you have another candidate for admission to the criminal ranks. The
transformation from respectability to
villainy is a very swift process in
our city slums, and it is surely undermining the stability of the commonwealth. Is there no law by
which a Chinaman can be prevented
from openly carrying on this diabolical work right in the midst of a
oivilized community? The facts recited yesterday are not unknown to
the police, or lo the city authorities;
but they are new to many of our
citizens, and we hope publio opinion
will assert itself in such u way as
to compel the adoption of prompt
and vigorous measures against this
terrible shame.
Knowledge by Experience.
In August, 1872. Julius. Chambers, a noted journalist, accepted
one of the strangest commissions
that ever fell to the lot of man.
Rumors had reached the public,
through the New York press, that
gross abuses existed in some of the
private asylums for lunatics which
were located about that city. Dr.
Baldric, who conducted ono of these
establishment, profusely denied the
truth of these rumors, and invited
the most thorough' enquiry. He
made application on several occasions to one of the leading metropolitan journals for a reporter to
examine the institution and ascertain whether or not it was eon-
ducted upon sound principles. The
application was granted in a wiry
which tlie applicant had never
dreamed of. Julius Chambers, a
member of the reportorial stall',
feigned madness, succeeded in hav-
ing himself committed to the any
turn, and aftor two weeks of ex
perience there gave to the world the
inside life of this private asylum
with Ihe ljiost harrowing details.
The publication of this expose produced a profound impression, and
resulted in a state enquiry which
fully substantiated, the worst airou.
sations of the amateur lunatic. In
a book entitled "The Mad World" a
full history of this remarkable journalistic venture may be found. Following the general plan of Chambers, a reporter of the Toronto
Globe lately undertook to post him
self on the inside life of the police
department and prison fare in Toronto. He pretended to be drunk,
had himself arrested, and was finally
sent to the county gaol for a week.
In a series of letters to the Globe
the experiences nnd observations of
this journalist are being given to the
public. While not at all equal in
interest with the revelations of
Chambers, these letters are still
worthy of attention because they
bring to light the existence of many
scandalous abuses 'ill ojficial quarters which cannot be excused and
ought to he remedied. The principal complaint of the Globe commissioner il stupidity, lack of system,
and great cruelty on the part of
the police. Men who have long
been dealing with the criminal
cIiumi, who are almost completely
ut their, mercy, are, apt to fall unconsciously into these habits of
cruelty, and some of the fucts
brought out by this strange adventure are serious enough to procure
the dismissal of jnoiu than one
member of ths Toronto police force.
Tha courage of reporters ns a rule is
undoubted, but not many even of
them would care to take the risks
involved in auoh a bold experiment
aithb.

Tbe Bible on Strong Drink.
A correspondent of tlm Alliance Record regrets the widespread misconception respeotion tho tho teaching of
the bible in regard lu intoxicating
drinks,    Ue Buys:
That the teachings of tlio blblo respecting in toxical in ir drinks are
strangely misread, is a matter for deep
regret, but not of wonder to those
who remember similar ignoninco or
perversity with reference to tho slavery question; and even now no olio believes the bible tu support Unit institution. So in tho time drawing nigh
will no one credit the approval by
scripture of the uso of ititoxicuiiitg
drink, and then will the chief reproach
against civilization, not to speak of
Christianity, he a thing of tho pn&t.
As Dr. F. It. Lees tersely puis ir,
"The propositions which the intelligent teetotaller aflh-ms and believes to
he impregnable in regard to bible
teaching are the following:
That bible history aud biography
record and reveal tbo seductive and mm-
tul consequences of the use of iuiuxi
eating drinks. That in ancient times
a wine was certainly in use which ii
described as a poison to both body
and soul; a wine that was at onco a
mocker, a defraudcr and a tleccivor.
That Biiother wine was also in use,
which cheers but not inebriates, such
ae Pharaoh used, which comuth out of
the earth, and like that of Cnna, do-
serves the name of good wine.
That personages selocted by Gud for
special or pre-eminent services, and
oven sometimes their parents, were
forbidden the use of all wine, uud in
some cases of auything that coineth
of the vine, un extreme tcctotallsiu
not needed in this dny of science.
That tlie first prohibition of wino
nnd tho lirst abstinonco pledge are recorded as coming directly from God.
That men devoted to work of
strength or holiness were appointed to
be teetotallers by special angelic men-
jies.
That neither in the Old nor in the
New Testament ia tlioro iv single passage which implies, much less verbally
expresses, nny Divine approval of intoxicating wine; that, on tho contrary,
there are repeated warnings against
the use of such drink alt through the
bible.
Tbat the Greek for -temperance' in
tho epistles is once applied to tho
known practice «f abstinence, yet in
no case to tho moderate uso of intoxicants; while the Greek word for abstinence ia frequently used as the name
uf Unit practice which distinguished
'the Sons of the Day,' the early Christiana liwl Uio i>r»> Oln-iutitiu J awa ou.llo.1
Kssenes, of that ancient practice which,
in 1853, tlio writer (Dr. Loos) first
called 'Neephalism.'"
Why So Many Beer Hrlnkcts Die or
Heart Disease.
The habitual consumption of beer
in large quantities tends to hypertrophy by the direct action of alcohol
upon the heart, by tho enormous
amount of fluid introduced into the
body, and by tho ensily assimilated
nutritive constituents of the beer itself.
Furthermore, such habits aro often
associated with great bodily activity,
and at least relatively luxurious manner of life. Tho averngo weight of
the normal heart in men is relatively
greater in Munich than elsewhere, a
fact, without doubt, dependent upon
the excessive consumption of beer in
that eity.
Many individuals addicted to -mich
excess attain an. advanced ago, notwithstanding cardiac hypertropy, by
reason of constitutional peculiarities,
an active open air life or an enforced
moderation, but the greatest number
perish after brief illness with symptoms of cardiac failure The excesses
in beer are common in some parts of
Germany ns in tbe new world, but
that such excesses are attended by a
grave danger, hitherto little suspected
should be generally understood.—
Sftdkal News.
Diskask and Death.—"No mutter
what his position < f life may be. or bis
objects or plans, the moderate use of
alcohol will alter and break flown
mental and physical energy and pro
cioilate destruction, Moderate ii-era
of alcohol die from dieiu.Ui proiokel
and stimulated hy this drug. They
always transmit a legacy of defective
tell energy and exhaustion, which hi st
readily finds relief in any iiarcolic.
Tho mnn who fits down and whines
thnt prohibition won't pnuVbii, is I.lut
a mnn who Bits down in thu fence-
corner and whines that his plough
won't plough ' f itsolf. A prohjl iiiu-y
law is tho only tool with whicli iho
work of of abolishing thu liquor tt-ailic
is lo bo d ue, and the ptoplu must
give impetus und notion. To Hay that
prohibition don't prohibit ia only to
say thai tho people aro t<<o indo'cnt

P. M. Arthur, chief of the brotherhood of locomotive engineer, says: "If
Z could I would inaugurate a strike
that would diive the liquor traffic from
the /ace of the earth."
Canon Wilberforce is reported as
saying in Philadelphia that when a
physician prescribed alcohol for him,
he prescribed the door for the
physician.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LIMITED.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
the Columbian Newspaper ami
Printing Concern was purchnsctl liy a
joint stock company composed of citizens
of New Westminster, to be knowu as tlio
"British Columbian Printing .Co.,
Limited." The concern lias been for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tlie British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria aud Vanconver, Tlio object of
tho new company is to continue thu ]>iih-
Hoation of the British Coiatmuiak newspaper and carry on a ncneinl printing and
publishiny concern, controlled entirely by
those whose individual Interest it will bo
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Tlioro will be no
slackening of tho energy hitherto displayed in the management of the establishment, aud Its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
Tho Columbian will continue to be entirely independent in both Dominion nnd
provincial politics, and will duvote itsolf
to tlie advancement of sneb schemes ns
may be considered in the public interest.
The concern 1b now entirely separate front
any other business, tho book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. lt.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it ou
In hit own name aud for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a dnily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, aud
the now company asks for public patronage on the ground that It is ongnged iu
an enterprise calculated to promote the
publlo welfare. It asks that the Col*
uhbiah bt judged on its own merits and
supported only so long aa its polioy Is
onoonshttt with its professions, In consequence of this business change all ao*
connts due tho concern must bo settled
without delay so that tho books of the
former company may be adjusted and
closed, Address all communications and
remittances to

Private lictccllvcs.
The Chicago Inter-occan
gives a little insight into the
so-called private detective agencies. It describes one of these
detectives sitting in his' office
meditating, when his eye catches
the vanishing figure of a beautiful young heiress who has just
married a man with no ambition
and less brains. Years of experience and observation have taught
the private detective that in such
matrimonial affairs a divorce
comes on the heels of the honeymoon, and he is trying to e-
volve a plan to hurry the thing
along. He is wondering whether he had better write the husband that his wifo. is another's
, love, or whether he can get more
money by accusing the husband
of infidelity. Of course, he
knows that they love each other
with all thejr hearts and souls;
but he has driven innocent, husbands and wives insane through
jealousy and suspicion before
and he knows he can do it again.
He will not be at a loss for methods when he decides to act.
One of his favorite schemes is to
write a letter something like.this
to the wife:
"Unfoiunath Madam: Forgive mo for
tho pain that I know this mustoausti you,
but I oan no longer stand idly by uud
seo your innocent and trusting heart imposed upon by the one whom you eall
husband. He is untrue and loves you
not. Do not tako my word for it, but
convince yourself by going to-night at
I) o'clock to tho southeast corner of Blauk
and Dash Btreots. He will then pass
down tho opposite bidu of the street with
ono whom lie has loved for years ami
does still. You must not lot him dis*
cover yon. If you brenthir a word of
this he wilt become suspicious and at
once cancel tho engagement with bis
or .1 r ess. l'ai'don mo for refusing to disclose my identity at this period, and
pin-mit mo to sign myself only as.—A
TmiK Fbiknp."
As soon as this letter is posted
he calls in a female operative of
the agency and tells her a certain
man, describing him fully, will
pass the corner of Blank and
Dark streets at 9 o'clock. She instantly recognizes the old
scheme, and knows that she is
to meet this man and walk with
him past that place. Her confederate, she knows, has learned that
the man is in the habit of passing there every night at that time
or that he will do if to-night
for some special purpose, either
business or pleasure. She never
saw him before, nor he her, but
she will meet him, and through
some subterfuge or artifice meet
him a block away, and walk by
his side past the place designated. Then she will leave him
and go back to the detective
agency. The wife has seen
them together. The anonymous
letter was true. She is ready to
believe anything how, and the
detective follows up the start
with the hundreds of little
schemes he has concocted; he
becomes "accidently" acquainted
with her; she discovers he is the
author of the anonymous letter;
she employs him to "shadow"
her husband's movements and
obtain the necessary evidence'
for a divorce. When he has
progressed this far he usually
tells the husband that his wife
wants to get a divorce from him
and marry another man, and she
has asked him to work up the
necessary evidence for her. A
stormy scene follows, which
ends in the husband hiring the
detective to shadow his wife.
Thus he bleeds them both until
one or the other applies for a
divorce, or his villiany is discovered. In the latter-event, which
rarely happens, the detective
never is punished for his' crime,
because he knows things and
would swear to statements that
would at least cause a terrible
scandal and perhaps ruin them
socially and in business forever.
There are hundreds of "detective
agencies" in the United States
which do this kind of work.
They arc nothing but blackmailing agencies, and it is their work
which has brought the "private
detective" into disrepute. The
honest, legitimate agencies suffer for the crimes of these "matrimonial agencies," as some of
them have openly styled themselves. The woe and misery,
anguish ana) sorrow caused by
these professional blackmailers,
the homes they have blasted,
the hearts they have broken, no
one knows. The detective
agencies, as has been said, are
not all of this class. Some
are managed by the shrewdest
and most honorable men living;
who would scorn to do anything
that was not lawful and right.
They have done inestimable
good ih bring to justice fugitives
and criminals of all classes, To
such private detective agencies
great credit is due, and it is
given.   Btlt they arc few.

Recmtios. — A large number of
members of the Methodist congregation aaaembled in the church lost night
to welcome the new pastor, Rev. J.
H. White, of Hamilton, Ont. A very
plentiful tea was provided by the ladies, after which words of welcome
were spoken by representatives of the
congregation and the conference, to
which Rev. Mr. White made a fitting
reply. Mr. 0. 0. Fisher occupied the
chair, and Rev. E. Robson, of Vancouver, wu present and took part in
the proceedings. Many of those present expressed regret at the departure
of Mr. Fisher, who has for two months
filled the pulpit with so much efficiency. That gentleman leaves for England early next week, expecting to return in the spring with bis wife and
family.' The gathering last night waa
eminently social in its character, and
was thoroughly enjoyed by all present.

The steamer Rainbow arrived at 10
o'clock yesterday. She had on board
tho passengers and mails of the disabled Yosemite. She landed at the
C.P.R. wharf, and overland passengers
and baggage were immediately transferred to the train, which wu waiting
to connect with the Atlantic Express
at the junotion, and which left for the
oast at S0:30 o'clock.
The steamer Rithet did uot arrive
yesterday until tl o'clock. She left
Victoria yesterday morning at her
usual time, 7 o'clock, but struck a
buoy shortly after leaving the wharf
and slightly injured her paddle wheel.
She had to return to Viotoria for repairs, and did not leave again until
near noon. She brought up about
100 tons of freight for various points
along the river and railroad.'
Tke Corner stones.
It was expected the ceremony nf laying the Masonic and Oddfellows corner

until 8:30 and the ceremonies were not
concluded until hear the time when we
had to go to press. In consequence
of the' lateness of the hour we are
compelled to hold over till Monday a
report of this very interesting event.
We niay uy briefly that there were
present over 200 Masons and Oddfellows, and the proceedings were witnessed by a large number of spectator!. After the stones hod been laid
the brethren repaired to their lodge
rooms, and at 8 o'clock a joint supper
will be given in the Skating Rink.
- Tke Yoiealt« Accident.
When the Yosemite lelt Victoria
yesterday morning there wu considerable fog on the straits. Alter proceeding about 10 miles, at slow speed, she
ran on a rock. There wu considerable excitement on board, passengers
lustily leaving their berths and inquiring in anxious tones what had happen
ed. The captain wu in his room at
the time, and the pilot had charge of
the steamer. Without much difficulty
she wu backed off, but it was found
that the had disabled her rudder and
wu leaking. She remained until
about 10 o'clock, when she proceeded
on her journey. After going through
Plumper's Pass and getting into the
straits it wu found the steamer could
net be controlled. She signalled for
the Rainbow, transferred her passengers to the steamer and. telegraphed for
a tug. It is not exactly known how
much injury she sustained, but it is
expected she will be laid up about a
week. The Louise hu taken her place
on the Vancouver route.

MrenrntRiAi Marks.— On Tuesday the members of the provincial
government had a conference with the
Postmaster General and tho Minister
of Justice on the appointment of county court judges and the Behring Sea
seizures. In the course of the eon-
venation Hon. Mr. Turner prated
very strongly for a postal delivery for
Victoria, and he wu given to understand that arrangement! would be
made for tuch a service early next
year. The government urged tne importance of taking steps to secure com-
peiuation to the owners and crews of
the sealing schooners seised by the
Americans in Behring's Sea, and pointed out the fact that it wu u necessary to have war vessels in Behring's
Sea'to protect British interests u it

CoHMtiAK.—Having lett my only son,
I solemnly feel that I ought henceforth
lo live to your tpecial advantage. To
do thii mott effectually I have thought
that it would be best to hire, uy half
a column'of space in the Columbian
weekly, trusting to your generosity to
help me to pay for it, u you may think
best I do not know that you will
appreciate my offer or deem the course
a wise one; but I shall make a beginning, and if it should be thought that
free lectures to the young people aro
preferable, and leu burdensome financially, I shall be willing to adopt that
course if by it I canonist you most.
As a great revolution of thought is
now taking place in many of the leading minda of Christendom with respect to scientific nnd biblical questions; perhaps none so revolutionary
since the dayt of Christ and the apostles, and certainly none so calculated
to extort from infidelity the cry of despair, emblazon the battlements of
revelation, and enrobe the Christian's
hope with a halo of divine glory; I
propose to lay before you, in some
way deemed best, the moat matured
and advanced thoughts of tlie times on
thou great eubjeoti which, of all
others, we are, or ought to be, most
interested in.   I desire to stimulate
rt mental activities and assist you
preparing for the great intellectual
and moral conflict in which every one
af us ought to engage. Among these
subjects will be the nature and character 8f the Creator; the nature of man
u related to the material world; the
nature and Character of man u related
to the spirit world; the instinctive
longing of man for suoh a God u the
Bible reveals; the substantial nature
of the human ooul and iti relation to
a hereafter and to immortality; the
origin, nature, and aacredness of human life; personal identity and the
transmission dt natural and moral
qualities from parent to child; the influence, of sin in deforming the bodily
organism, strengthening the passions,
and confirming bad habits; the probable nature of the resurrection-body;
Bible regeneration in. harmony with
mentoEond moral science, tnd the na-
tare offinito spirit dwtined to a future
state; woman u a virgin, wife, and
mother, and her relation to moral government nnd the scheme of redemption, etc. These subjects will convey
tome Idea of what it is my earnest
desire to interest you in. It will involve- » large amount of labor on my
part, but 1 shall feel amply repaid if I
con tuoceed in interesting you in these
great subjects. I am mott concerned
about the financial part ot the scheme
with respect to the claims of the Columbia*. I hope it will tee iti way
clear to admit the articles tree. It
ought to equal myself in generosity to
the young people. If you can think
of any other preferable way, be kind
enough to let us know. If lectures
are thought but, all thtt I desire is ao-
tuul expenses pah], u I cheerfully givo
both time and labor to promote your
but interests.     Wm. Kim, M, D.

THE DISALLOWED RAILWAY.   .!,."..
Montreal. Aug. 27. — Some new
developments in tho Manitoba railway
trouble came to light yesterday. Hugh
Ryan, contractor for the line, stated
to a friend that though grading would
be finished soon there wu no likelihood of the road being completed this
year, as he wu determined not to forward rails from here until they were
paid for, and as the Manitoba government ww unable to float the bonds it
has no cull.
VAN KORNK OUTWITS THE WINHIFEOER8.
Wixnifko. Aug. 27.—Sir Geo. Stephen, Sir Donald Smith, and Van-
Home, Canadian Pacific magnates,
stole a march on Winnipegera to-dny.
They wero out on the branch line in a
special cur, and it wu intended on
their arrival to subpoena them to attend an examination in the court house
Monday. It was thought some interesting particulars about their connection with the injunctions could be
^duced,,iJt,wiiit^ded.to:pu|yan-
Honie on oath in regard to rates and
show, by comparison with American
figures that competition by means ot
the proposed Red River road would be
a great benefit to the province. The
intention of the government leaked
out and it was privately intimate!
to the U. P. K. party about » o'clock
this morning, while they were in bed
at Sir Donald Smith's former residence
about five miles from Winnipeg. Van.
Home issued prompt instructions to
enable them to escape. Although it
had beeij the intention of the party
to stop here a,short time, a special engine was sent ont from this city and
the magnates boarded a private car
and a few minutes later a special swept
through the yard, passed the station,
and spod on its way down the main
line to Port Arthur. Government
officials were muoh chagrined at being
thus fooled, although it ia felt that the
action of the C. P. R. officials is a confession of the weakness of their cue.

Nxw York, Aug, 27.—An Ottawa
despatch this morning quotes Hr. Foster,
minister of marine and fisheries, u uy-
ingr "There la nothing officially new in
connection with the Behring bu seizures.
Tlie seizures made this yur are in conflict with the course pursued by the U.
8. government' u to last year's seizures.
The Alaska Fur Co. apparently control
matters up there, and late events seam
to indicate that the Washington authorities, have determined to support the
monopoly in Its claims to exorcise fishing

San Francisco, Aug. 27 Mrs. Lang-
try's declaration ol intention to become
an American citizen while here and her
leasing a house for six months u required by the law to perfect her citizenship, appears to be nothing more than an

San Franoisco, Aug. 27.—Caller Bunker announced in the call board of the

Dresback A Rosenfield were unable to
meet tbe terms ob their agreement made
shortly after the suspension of the board
two weeks ago. The ule of 10,000 tons

and involves nearly a million on the part
of Dresback A Rosenfield and more on
the part of others.
