Home rule is one of the great
questions of the day, not only to
Ireland, but the entire empire. It
ia not only a question whether Ireland shall enjoy the privilege of regulating her own local affairs, but it
is a question that involves other important questions. Who would
have thought that this unsettled
question of home rule between poor
Ireland and her "conqueror" would
have given rise at this lute day to
such an important question as the
one that now agitates tho Catholic
church. To read the utterances
of tho loaders, both lay and clerical,
of this home rule movement, the
conclusion is evident that their salvation from so-culled political slavery
is their first consideration, and that
any body or thing that intercepts
their progress towards that end is
not to be tolerated. It is well that
this vital question to Catholics
themselves must be settled amongst
themselves. The Protestants of
1529 who protested against a violation of their conscience by the edict
of the Emperor Charles V, had reference to their right of private
judgment in spiritual things. The
Irish Catholic-Protestants of 1888,
in protesting against the pope's "re
script," have reference only to their
right of private judgment in temporal things; but the principal is the
same in both cases, and is a matter
of conscience in the concrete, with
reference to the means they are
using to accomplish the desired end
—home rule. This is history repeating itself. Shall man be a free,
accountable being or will he divest
himself of his true manhood and deputize some other fellow mortal, or
mortals, to use him as a mere manikin, without brains, heart, or «eon.-
science? The whole civilized world
is anxiously looking to see the ultimate decision of this question. The
"divine right of kings" was long acknowledged, and is to some extent
yet acknowledged; and in so far as
their rule is for the general good of
the subject it is divine, but just so
soon as rulo or authority, from any
quarter, ceases to aim for the good
of the subject, it is no longer divine.
Divine government of thia world isfor
man's good,in every sense of the term.
The first government of the world
was a theocracy; but ever since the
Jews demanded a "king to rule over
them" the world has been governed
(so far as man has been concerned)
by a system of shams, under the
plausible profession of "divine right."
Why does England refuse to grant
home rule to Ireland! Simply bo-
cause, as is alleged, the Protestants
in Ulster might be treated by the
majority (who are Catholics) just as
the Catholics were treated by
the majority (who were Protestants)
before the emancipation acts—deprived of their political acts—proscribed. Some will say, better not
speak of this vexed question, you
will offend somebody. True, if you
try to make it still more vexed, yon
will; but tbe way to settle such a
question is to talk about it in a true
Christian spirit, and it will cease to
vex anybody concerned, except those
who are the cause of it. This home
rule question, although a seeming
evil to all concerned, will in the end
he productive of good: it will be the
means of settling a good many
troublesome questions that impede
the march of true freedom. Ireland
was once the most enlightened and
free spot on earth, and, as ita sons
are still possessed of that same spirit
of gallant chivalry, soon may the
day come when they shall shake off
every shackle, and, instead of being
unwillingly the imputed cause of so
much troublo to themselves and
others, they will stand forth in the
world onoe more freo from overy
yoke, except thnt "yoke which is
easy." We would fnin hope that ere
the time we oome to write the "yonr
of our Lord 1900," this home rule
question will have been settled, lo
the satisfaction of all concerned.

Maurice, of Stewart's Luke, passed
down tu-dav. Ho reports that on arriving at Fort Georgo Canyon on the
1st June ho requested the Indians to
portage the canoe, but thoy refused.
He then left tho canoe and walked
down the canyon, but the Indians pursued their journey on the water. When
passing down the canoe struck a rock.
One Indian was thrown out and drowned. The other stuck to the canoe for
some distance and finally swam ashore.
THE BEHMKO SEA DimdJlTV SETTLED.
ViCTOBii, June 0.—Collector Ham-
ley today announced the fact that he
had information that sealing schooners
entering Behring's Sea would not be
interfered with outside of the three
mile limit. The news caused great rejoicing among the sealers as half a
dosen schooners leave in • few days
for the north. Owing to tho lack of
any confirmation of the news up to date
regarding Behring's Sea the Indian,
refused to go there, but will now undoubtedly consent.
A CYCLONE VISITS OTTAWA,
Ottawa* June 6'.—A terrifio cyclone
passed over the oity thia afternoon,
creating great damage. It came from
the southwest and swept everything in
its path. Dwellings were blown dowu
and tho streets are filled with debris.
While the storm, whioh lasted 15 minutes, was at its height, the lightning
struck the Protestant hospital, sotting
the building ou firo. The inmates
were removed to the ground floor and
tho fire brigade got the flames under
control after half su hour's work. The
lost is 850,000. The destruction in
the suburbs was terrible, though tho
particulars at present to hand are
meagre. Three men were killed in
Gloucester township. They had taken
refuge in a barn whioh was razed to
the ground. The cyclone struck tlm
Catholic church at BillingBbridge whilo
a devotional service was iu progress.
One girl wu killed and three other
children injured. Tho building wits
completely demolished. The wires ate
nearly all down and no further particulars from the outlying districts can be
obtained.
A HOW IMMINENT.
Montreal, June fl. -A sensation
has been caused by Archbishop Fabre
issuing a pastoral letter condemning
the remarks of the Hon. Justice
Church, who on opening the Kermesse,
itow being held in aid of the Notre
Dame Hospital, declared that the institution was an unseetarisnone under
secular control, and this the archbishop
objects to, declaring that the hospital
is a ' Catholic institution, dependent
upon religious authority and under the
direction of the ohuroh. It is feared
that the result will he that the Pro
tr-'stants will take umbrage and withdraw their patronage which will he
ruinous to the success of the enterprise.
The board of governors of tho hospital
take issue with the archbishop- and
declare that the only thing that can
give the hospital a religious character
is the presence ofthe grey nuns as
nurses, as the botrd includes Protestants and the act of Incorporation
clearly provides that the hospital shall
be undenominational in character.

THIS aOBNINfl'S DESPATCHES.
THUSMAX  POR VICE-PRESIDENT,
St. Louis, Mo., June 7.—When Chairman Collins nipped the Democratlo national convention to order a lew minutes
before half-past ton this morning bandanas could be seen flying from almost
every state, and it was plainly evident
that the * 'Old Roman," was the universal
favorite for tho vico-presidency and his
nomination would be a certainty. After
the noise had somewhat quieted, Matter-
son, of tho committeo on rcnohitions,
took the stand to report the platform
amid the cheers of the delegates. Before
reading the platform ho stated that it
had been unanimously agreed upon by
the committee. Tho platform iii-aHirms
the principles of 1884, and endorses the
views of tho president, expressed in liis
last message to congress. Direct attention was paid to tho reading of the platform, which was frequently interrupted
by the wildost applause, When Watter-
son concluded he addressed the convention and then presented .Senator Gorman
of Maryland, who uls. -pr-ke oil the resolutions. While in the midst of his
speech great confu ion waa manifested in
the lower end of the hall liy an encounter
between two spectator's. Instantly pan-
deiiionuim reigned; people thought the
building wos on fire and panic became
evident. Quiet was finally restored and
Gorman finished his speech, stating that
the platform is to be so broad that every
Democrat iu tbe land could stand on it.
The platform was unanimously adopted.
Prolonged ehcoriug greeted the Announcement. Tho following resolutions were
then introduced and carried; Kavoring
admission of Dakota, Montana, New
Mexico, and Washiliiiton Territories; endorsing Mill's tariff1 hill and favoring its
immediate passage! and expressing sympathy for Gladstone and tho home rulers.
The convention had jnst been In session
an hour when the roll of states ami territories was called for the noiniaation of
vice-president.
ANOTHER KINUIHUI ADDED TO TIIE ImiT-
ISH CROWN.
London, Juno 7.—Within a few days
Queen Viotoria hss succeeded in adding to her dominions a vast empire almost continental in siza and peopled
by 70,000,000 of industrious and relatively prosperous inhabitants. This
immense tract extends from Zanzibar
northward aa far as Abyssinia, with a
seaboard of over 1700 miles In length,
Westward it reaches to beyond Vie-.
loria Nysnza and the other great lakes
from which tho Nile takes its source,
and includes the finest lands ana
richest markets in contral Africa. A
royal charter has been issued to sn association known as tho East African
Co., which has been authorised to take
possession of the district in question
and exercise justico, collect revenue,
deal with refractory subjects, and by
"force nf arms" wield all powers of a
semi-independent government.
A SCHEME TO KIDNAP PATTI.
New Yobk, June 7.—A cablegram to
tho World says that a scheme has been
discovered not only to rob Mme. Pitti of
her jewels but to kidnap her. A gang
followed her to Buenos Ayres, and one
of thoir number has communicated with
tho police and the result is that two
members of the gang hayo been put in
prison.
DESTRUCTIVE PIRE.
Salem, Oregon, June 7.—Fire early

building occupied by the electric and
agricultural works of Thos. Holman, and
the sash and door factory of Cook 4
Churchill. Holman's loss is (55,000; insured for $20,000. The factory loss Is
$24,000; insurnnco unknown.

NOMINATION   OF THURMAN  UNANIMOUS.
St. Louis, June 7.—Tarpey, of California, at the Democratic convention today, nominated Thurman for the vice-
presidency amid tremendous applause
ami flying of rod bandannas from every
portion of the building. Patterson, of
Colorado, followed, presenting the nanus
of General Black, but was interrupted In
the midst of his speech by a telegram
from Black, withdrawing nr Thurman's
favor. Biggot, of Connectiout, seconded
Thurman'a nomination. The noise in the
galleries, which were packed for Gray of
Indiana, became so great at this time
tbat the chairman informed the occupants that they would be ejected If it did
net cease, Voorhees was heartily welcomed as he advanced to tho stage to
present Gray's namo. He made a strong
appeal to tho south, to stand by Indiana,
referring to it as the battle ground of
Democracy. The speech had a telling
effect on the delegates. At the conclu- ,
sion of Voorhees' speech the Indiana
delegation wss on its feet, cheering enthusiastically for their choice. Cox, of
Georgia, seconded tho nomination. Dry.
den, of Missouri, Dawson, of South Carolina, Throekmorten, of Texas, and Powell, of Ohio, seconded Thurman's nomination, and Senator Daniels, of Virginia,
suggested that it be made unanimous.
At this moment the states, began changing their votes to Thurman. The con
fusion became intense. Chairman Collins
endeavoured to quell the noise,"l«t desisted, his efforts being in vain.' The
yelling of delegates and spectators was
overwhelming. Voorhees again made
his way to the platform and commanding
attention, withdraw Gray's name and
moved to mako the nomination of Thurman unanimous. This wu done amid
roars of excitement, which if anything,
exceeded that of yesterday. At2.15p.rn.
The convention adjourned sine die.
Admires Ihe "Celmblan."
We admire tho stand the British
Columbian hss taken on the Sabbath
breaking question. It boldly expresses
its disapprobation of Sunday railway
excursions, ete. The Journal is in
sympathy with the Columbian on that
point. We don't take a bit of stock
in these Sunday hurrahs. The oountry without a Sabbath is not fit for a
white men to lire in, excepting as a
missionary. Saturday is a muoh better day for sports, and tho employer
who. will not give his employees Saturday afternoon, if they need it, is undoubtedly a skinflint. Destroy Sunday aud anarchy will fallow soon after.

kMleaajr Indians.
Supt. Neale, Insp. Wroughton and
a party of police started from the barracks hero on Sunday night last at 10
o'clook, to make some arrests on tbo
Blood reserve. But few people knew
that the party was out until they aaw
them baok at about 5 o'clock on Monday afternoon with the prisoners. On
tho way to tho reserve, some of the
horses had to swim both the Kootenay
and Belly river. The arrests were
made at 3 o'clock in the morning, and
numbered four, Nico Old Woman,
Many Fingered Man, The One that
Hollers in Ihe Morning, and White
Crane. No resistance was offered to
the police, ami tho prisoners are now
in tho guard room. The polico searched Rid Crow's camp for his son, but.
thnt youlh could not bo found. Ked
Crow promised to bring him in as soon
ns ho turned up, and sure enough ho
arrived with his own snn in custodyal-
ni'St as toon ns the poliee on Monday,
and tho head chief's heir is now a
prisoner in the guard room. The Indians were arrested for bringing stolen
horses into Oanada. The total number
discovered by tho police was 30 heads.
It will be remembered that a treaty
was brought about between the Bioods
and Gros Ventres at oonsidersblo troublo and expense. The Bloods first
broke it, the Gms Ventres retaliated,
and now there seems every prospect of
its going to everlasting smash.—Afac-

We sometimes wonder whether
everyone is duly thankful for linving
their "lineaeast" in this enviable
latter end of this favored nineteenth
century. What with the advance
of science, a constant accession of
new discoveries nnd inventions, and
those great modern conveniences
and oivilizers—theelectiio telegraph
and the daily newspaper—the world
is getting to bo very cosmopolitan.
Half a century ago thrones might
totter and full in Europe and potentates and statesmen Irow to the
universal decree, montlis beforo the
echo of the ond or the lust funeral
strains of tho other could reach the
shores of America. Now tho world
is as one grent family, and wo oven
in British Columbia are in hourly
touch ns it were with the heurt
throbs of the world's great centres.
What transpires in the remotest
part of the globe is straightway
town talk with us. Witness the
very striking illustration furnished
during the past few weeks by the
sick-clinmber bulletins of tlio world's
present four illustrious and stricken
heroes— two emperors, a soldier nnd
nstotosinan—Frederick of Uennany,
Dom Pedro of Brazil, Phil. Shcri
dan of America, nnd John Bright of
old England. Every day, and
twice a day—through the medium
of the press and telegraph—the
great reading publio ean visit the
bedside of the gallant soldier, inquire nfter the health of the veteran
statesman, feel Dom Pedro's pulse,
and, shaking liands with Germany's
beloved "Fritz," say, "How are you,
old boy, to-day 1" The illustrious invalids have been playing a very
"close game" with the "grim destroyer," and at presont appear
to have got the upper hand. How
much their ability to even postpone
the "fatal day" has been clue to the
cordon of sympathy and good wishes
on their behalf which encircles the
globe, who shall say. We leave
this question to somo professor of
the esoteric sciences.
result of othor nnrl more deeply-entrenched facts, rtnd it is only u truism to say that "facts are stubborn

Chinese that are amongst ua in u

condemn anything uppronphing to

has taught us that, in self-defence,
we must provide against the further
incursions of theso people. A limited number would appear to oll'set
their drawbacks by some advantages,

The last number of the Toronto
Truth to hand has the  following:
"Why should tho Chinaman be made
to pay l}50 before being allowed to
enter British  Columbia,   while  a
negro, an Irishman or n Scot can
come and go as he pleases? It would
bo difficult to say.   Such is the fact,
however, and in Australia even more
stringent measures nre being takon
to keep out tho  almond-eyed   littlo
men, who seem to be hated pricipal-
ly because they are quiet and industrious.    Notoriously, the  Chinese
are not paupers.    If they live  in
unsanitary bouses surely this oould
bo prevented by stringent local regulations.     If they cannot come   to
Canada, why should   Canadians be
allowed to go to China I   Apparently the Chinese government will soon
answer tho question by making reprisals on the same lines, beginning
with tho missionaries who have gono
to convert the dwellers in the Sow-
ory laud to tho purer faith of Christianity."   Our cotemporary petulantly asks a very superficial question,
which any child might put; then he
says it would be difficult to   answer
it, and proceeds tostato u fact which
suggests a question even more   difficult to answer.    Since our cotemporary scrims fond of   conundrums
we -will give him another,  founded
on whut he admits as facts:      I low
is it that the people of   the  United
States'(principally the Pacitio states),
the people of British Columbia, and,
last, but not least, the people of the
great Australian continents-aggregating perhaps a uinjority pf   the
Anglo-Saxon race—who, our, ootemporary muat admit, in the very   nature of things, represent at least the
average   intelligence  and  judicial
fairness of this globe  of. ours—and
who have had (what our  cotemporary and others like  him   obviously
lack) a stern practical experienco of
the Chinese—have all come practically to the same conclusion us to the
nature and extent of the evils of
Chinese immigration, and all  agrco'
substantially as to tho remedy—restriction; or prohibition I   Such an
array «f incontrovertible and signiti-
cant facts barring the vory gute,way
of thii Important question  should
deter any one from entering upon
its discussion superficially.   Answer
thohetvyquestionlirst.friend Truth,
and" the light one will answer itself.
The suggestion that the "almond-
eyed little men" Are ''hated principally because they are quiet and industrious" would lie an insult to the
ordinary common-sense and fairness
of millions of intelligent men,   were
it not too ridiculous on the  face of
it to deserve notice.   The statement
that "notoriously   (the italics   are
ours) the Chinese are not paupers"
il a "notorious" contradiction of the
foots.   Other remarks on the subject demonstrate conclusively what
more our ootemporary doesn't know
about the matter.     The concluding
observations do not really affect the
main question, because, practically
■peaking, reciprocity, or retaliation,
ofthe Chinese government  would
•ink   into   comparative    insignificance bertH* the pressing urgency
ofthorealliveChinese problem, as
exhibited on the Pacifio ooast or in
Australia.   We regret as much as
the Truth possibly oould some of the
facia growing out of the  Ohineso
question, but they are the necessary

A OOOD BEOIMMINO.
How the Fint Step in the Bond 'te-XUtl'
tlnotlon Was Tnkoi
On a bamtifal Summer m(irn|iig, shot
many years ago, two bright-faced boyi
worn strolling along tho beach Jn front of
a large hotel at a noted Summer resort on
tho southern coast of Sweden.   Suddenly
one pf them paused, and stooping quietly
picked out of thosanda beautiful pin,
, crescent-shaped, set with   magnificent
diamonds.   Holding it up,:l» exclaimed:
"Oh,Carl,«ee*liatI'vefoniidj" ;
"Why, Otto," said   i,|,   companion,
"those are diamonds—I'm sure of it, for
nothing elsoever sparkles like those da
And won't you berlchnowf ;foryouciiu
get ever so much money for such a pin
at that." .
I, "y>J-. Cmll" said Otto, reproachfully.
"What do you mean? This pin Isn't mine.
* I am snra lt must belong to ono of tho
great Indies at the hotel, and I shall try
to find tho owner,"
"Oh, nonsensel That won't pay. You'll
[ perhaps not get even a 'thank-you* for
I your pains, and you will feel mean onoui.li
a afterwards to think you were suoh a
:   fOOl."
"I nm sure an approving cinsolencewlll
bo sufficient reward," said Otto, "evon If
r I get no thanks for what I do."
' Otto went at once to tiro hotel, and
j there told the proprietor his story, at the
same time putting Into his hand tho ores-
I cent-pin.
"Good ladlgood lad!" oried tho hotel-
keeper. "Yes, my boy, the lady who lost
,■ tills pin is now under this roof. -Stay hero
f until I take It to her. 1 know that sho
| will wnnt to see you."
I Tlio hotKl-keeper soon roturned, and
I conducted tlio boy to a richly furnished
b parlor, whero a stately lady stood waiting
[ to recejve him.
"I thank yoti, my little man," sho saiil,
"for returning to me this pin, which I
I prize very highly. I am told that your
I father Is dead, but that your mother still
I lives, and that you are doing all you can
Ito help her In earning allving. Gotoher,
land tell her I say she has reason to bo
I very proud ot her boy. Awl yon shnll
1 soon be rewarded wllh something better
■ than thanks, for the Queen of Sweden la
|iiever ungrateful."
~ Overcome with consternation at finding
Jhimself in the presence of tho queen, tho
I boy was powerless to reply, aud could only
Show himself out of the room.
P A few days after thisoccurrence, tho
■queen and her attendants returned to
Stockholm, the capital of the kingdom,
Wand a week later came n summons from
■tho king for Otto and his mother to pro-
lcecd to that city.  Complying at once,
■hey found on their arrtvAlupretty cottage lilted up forthelr reception, nnd woro
'-'i by the king's messenger that lufuturo
jt was their home.   The next day they
were summoned to the prtiact, nnd presented to the king, who learning that
pttoliad an ambition to becomo a must-
Jrian, declared lhat he should nt once bo-
kln his Hiulics nndera competent teacher.
J And this was the result:   Ten years af-
Berwards this boy waa known ns Sir Otto,
llie music teacher of tho royal famllv, arid

■The rainfol Mistake Mail© by a Dishonest
Butcher. ',
All Italian who was traveling in California with i> bear which he had trained
to'Wrestle and dance, stopped before a
farmer's house late ono afternoon, and
after amusing the family, with his performances obtained permission to stay all
night.
The bear was placed la tho barn for
safe keeping.
Curing tbo nlgat the family were
aroused by a terrible noiso in tho barn.
Somo ono wnsscreaming"*vlurder! Help!"
and apparently engaged fn r. struggle for
life.
Tho farmer hastened to the spot, followed by tho Italian nnd others of the
house, nnd found iho tamo hear with a
man in his embrace, hugging hlin tightly
While tho poor fellow struggled frantically to escape. Tho bear was muzzled
nnd could do tho man no serliiua irrjury,
though ho was very uncomfortably situated.
Tiro man proved to bo n dishonest
butcher, who had come to the barn to
steal a lino calf. In tho darkness ho had
stumbled over the bear, who had seized
him and held him fast.
The Italian, learning how matters stood,
called out "Hug htm, Jack!" und the bear
continued to hug bim unmercifully, until
the farmer concluded that he hnd been
sufficiently punished, whon ho was released.
Tho story soon spread abroad, and the
butcher left tho neighborhood to escape
the ridiculo to which lt subjected him.
CROWING TALL BY E.VEBCISE.
Influciitro ot Various Kinds of Exerclso
on tiro Shape of tho Body.
Exercise is generally taken without any
direct reference to tho increase of height.
Thus it ol ten happens that tho gymnastic
feats chiefly Indulged in tend.rather, to
check than to increase the raloof growth.
This applies particularly to the lifting
of heavy weights, the use of large dumb
bells, involving' comparatlveljrslow movements, and all exercises which tend to increase tho supporting power of the spine
and tho leg bones, even though they, mar
hrr exercises primarily directed to increase
tlie muscular power of the arms.
Fulling, exercises, though they tend to
increase tho development oftlipnrms ln
length ns well as in girth (round the forearm chiefly), do not on the whole favor
tbo developmentof length of limb. Sailors,
who from boyhood upward are much employed in pulling aud hauling, are on tbo
nveiHgeslroi'Mueni'though often .the development, of strength and weight resulting from their active open air lives is re-
nirii'krrble. We see oftener among them
than in other classes brawny chests,
shoulders and upper arms iu company
with lower limbs which by comparison
appear almost, stunted.
On tho othor hand, men engaged in
hunting, or iu occupations requiring much
walking, running, leaping and the like,
acquire well developed lower limbs, and
are on tbe average taller than other classes.—Richard A. Proctor.'
SAVED BV AN ACE OF HEARTS.
What Would Have flappenetl If tho Bfan
Hadn't i. Tack of Cards.
Did you ever hear of a man's life being
saved by a pack of cards? Well, here is
an incident that is vouched for by many
who saw the occurrence.
Ono of the best known and popular
drummers who comes here, and he cornea
often was oue of a merry party who were
engaged one night in a friendly game of
"draw," which drummers sometlmee
play.
After concluding the game our friend
placed the cards in the left-hand pocket of
bis coat, which brought them directly
over his heart. Soon thereafter one of the
party, while carelessly handling a pistol,
discharged it, and now comes the strangest part of the story.
The bullet struck the drummer In the
loft breast, going through his clothing
and also through every card in the deck
except one, this one being the bottom
card, or the last one ot the deck. This
card, strange to say,was tbe aco of hearts,
and the character in ita very centre was
identified by the bullet-Americus En-
publican.

Tho water last night roso slightly
higher than on Tuesday night, hut tho
rise can be attributed mainly to the
tides which aro becoming higher as
the change of moon draws near. From
up-river points there is nothing particular to chrotiiclo; tho wator has continued to rise steadily, but so very
slowly that littlo or no sorious damage
has been done, though nt some points
the land along tho river banks iB soveral inches undor water. Thia morning
Capt. Peele recoived a despatch from
Mr. James Wilson, at Soda Creek,
stating the wnter thero had gone down
18 inches in tho past 24 hours. This,
indicates that.wo will soon experience
a similar fall here and that any danger of a Sertoli.-! flood has passed.

The superiority of British Columbia
fir over ull others ia becoming more

latterly whon extra quality timbor is
required, for auch particular work aB
palace car building, no other is used,
providing the timbor can bo secured in
time. For some time past the lloyal
City Mills have been shipping Bill timber to the largest car works in the United States, and new orders are constantly being received from them—a suili-
cient proof of the satisfaction the lumber gives. To-day the lloyal City Mills
shipped four carloads of sill timber to
tho Crosseu Car Worka, of Cobourg,
Out., tho lirst shipment uf a large order
lately received. The timber is all 65
feet in length, of the best quality and
not a knot or flaw will bo found in any
stick of it. This lumber will be used
by tho Croaaen Works on the palace
and first class cars now being built for
the C. P. II., and which require the
very best material that can be produced. Other shipments will follow from
time to time until the order is filled.
' Tbe Seabird Island Reserve.
Nine years ago the Dominion government eet aside Seabird Island, situated
5 miles above Agassi::, as an Indian reserve for the use of the Indians residing between Oheatu and Yale. A short
timo ago settlers in the neighborhood
of Seabird Island, seeing that the land
was of oxcellont quality, made ropre-
Bentatipus to the government to the
effect that the island waa not used by
the Indians und that it should bo
thrown open fur settlement. Mr, McTiernan, Indian agent, has been requested to report on tho matter and
will do so shortly. The Indians on
hearing that thoy might lose tho island
held a mounter meeting at Hope,
which was attended by fully 1000 of
thoir p'joplc. Tho result of tho meeting was that a utrnng protest againat
auy interference with tho reserve was
sent to Mr. McTiernan, und a request
that he should convey their feelings on
the subject to the Dominion authorities. The Indians havo not been residing permanently on Seabird Island,
but crops are planted on it overy year
by them, and they feel that if it bo
oponed for settlement n great injustice
will havo been perpetrated.
Police Court,
Before T. C. Atkinson, P. M.
Tho case of Mithell, charged with
interfering with Constable Smith in
the discharge of his duty, came up
Again this morning.
Tho ovidence of Mr. Fraser, Mr.
HuBBell and a number of Italians was
taken, tho most of which went ngainst
Constable Smith's evidence, but His
Honor expressed himself ob inclining
to take the constable's story as substantially correct. In reviewing the
evidence His Honor said it was plain
thnt the officer had been interfered
with in the discharge of his duty nnd
he would therefore film Mitchell $20 or
14 days imprisonment unless the tine

Complaints nre made that the public
or strangers' cemetery, about two miles
out on Douglas street is in a disgraceful condition. Gates are conspicuous
by their absence, fences are down,
head boards are entirely wanting or
else lying on the ground, and a general
nir of dilapidation and destruction pervades a place which it is the wont of
surviving humanity to associate with
feelings of decent respect, if not of
hallowed memories. Friendless and
unknown whitemen, Chinese and Si-
washes, are huddled promiscuously
into what can only appropriately ba
deseribed as a houe-y»rd. From a
utilitarian point of view thia would
perhaps seem all right (although thu
earelessueas with which somo of tho
intermonts nro performed may not be
conducive to tho sanitary condition of
the adjacent districts), but if tho matter wero to co.uie home to each, individually, who would fool indifferent
about "those who havo gone before"
resting in suoh unhallowed soil. But
it is the old story of "Rattle hia bones
ovor the stonca; he's only a pauper
whom nobody owns." This condition
cf things, however, look ht it how wo
may, it not creditable to us as a city,
nnd as civilized beings. Let some of
our citizens investigate tlie mutter for
themselves, and let us seo if something
connot be done to at least mitigate the
ruin and neglect in this "garden of
Iho dead." _
A Painful Accident.
Last evening while . Aid. Harry
Elliott's son, Willie, was out for a ride
bo met with a Bevoro accident which,
though dangerous, is not expected to
prove fatal. , The animal Willie was
riding was n throe year old colt belonging to Mr, Bonson, which had not
been properly broken to tho saddle.
Near the lower end of Agnes Btreet he
attempted to turn the horse up a side
stroet, but the animal became stubborn
and refused to be guided and made nn
attempt to go further up the hill. In
order tu prevent the horso taking its
own course, Willie checked it in at
which the horse reared up on its hind-
legs uud fell over backwards, crushing
thu rider underneath it.. Tho pommel
of ihe-saddle, a Mexican oue, struck
Willie ovor the abdomen causing internal injuries, but to what extent cannot yet be discovered. Ho also received many severe bruises, but fortunately no bones wero broken. Dr.
Loftas Mclnnes wns called and attended professionally to the injured boy
who is now in na favorable condition
as could be reasonably expected. Dr.
Mclnnes says it will be at least two or
three days beforo it can bo told with
any degree of certainty how the injuries will reault, but tho presont indica-
tlons, he saya, are favorable, and the
probabilities are that the injured boy
will recovor. 'Everybody in town sympathizes with Mr. aud Mrs. Elliott in
tlieir affliction, and all hopo that their
sou may safoly recovor from tho injuries he hns received.
