strikes, no trade local assembly to

and have by a three-fourths vote
agreed to render assistance (tbe
general laws ot the Order requiring
attempts at arbitration to be observed). No assistance from the
General Order to be given until the
case has been presented to the General Executive Board, and by them
submitted to the Order at large. In
ease no assistance from the General
Order is required, the General Executive Board is not to interfere with

. A FornMable CMweUtor.
When the construction of the
Canadian Pacific railroad was approaching completion cynics pointed
to the favourably-competing lines
which crossed the United States
and asked what future there could
be for the new road, except to con
vey Anglo-maniacs and snowballs
from Halifax to an obsoure island
on the Pacific coast. But since the
new line has been completed the
eyes of American railroad men hare
been opened, and it is quite time
thnt the eyes of the nation . were
opened, too. In years gone by
American Vessels did a considerable
share of the narrying trade between
New York, Baltimore and Philadelphia on thb side of the Atlantic
ana the various ports of Western
Europe on the other. Even before
the oivil war broke ont this trade
had begun to slip out of American
hands. It now looks as if the
Pacific trade is going to follow suit.
In the past the United States has
had almost a monopoly of tbe Pacific trade, and the exports from this
country to the Pacific islands are
still in excess of those received-in
these islands from any other source.
But a service of fut steamers has
now been put on between British
Columbia and both Ohina and Japan, connecting with fut trains on
the Canadian Pacific road and calling at the principal Pacific ports.
As a result psssengers from China
and Japan have already begun to
patronise tha new route in preference to the old route via Honolulu,
San Francisoo and the . United
States, the gain in time averaging
from three days to a week in a journey flea Yokohama to New York.
The Canadian Pacific road not only
Crowes a narrower belt of continent
than iti American rivals, but it is
practically one concern, run on business principles and operated without referenoeto sinecure presidencies
or corruption fees to senators and
congressmen generally. The steamers plying between the ports of British Colombia and the Pacific ports
of China and Japan are of improved
modern construction, half ns fut
again as the veteran oraft that sail
from San Francisoo. The anxiety
whioh Great Britain hu manifested
for a settlement of the Hawaiian
difficulty iu her own favor is now
explained. Three out of the four
•prominent Cabinet ministers are
favorable to British' rather - than
American interests, and the last
loan came from British sources.
If Honolulu becomes a mere coaling
station for British vessels monopolising the trans-Paclfio trade,
and the Canadian Pacific road
knocks out the slow trains of the
Northern, Central and Texas Pnoi
Ho, the American flag mny as well
be lowered on Pacific ns on Atlantic
waters,—IhiMmurt HeroU.

VICTORIA MAX VISIT OArJABA. '
London, Sept. 22.—A report has
been started here that tho Queen may
visit her Canadian Dominions. A
very strong cltect is being .mode to
induce her to do su. It has beon
stated that Sir John A. Mcdonald, tho
Canadian premier,. unanimously supported by the members othis. government, and by. public sentiment, proposes to come tu London, arid present
a petition to the Queen to visit her
subjects iu North America. Sir
Charles Tupper has been interviewed
with regard to. the reports and says
he knows nothing of Sir John's intention in the matter.
1 LIVELY   RA1LUOAD.
Sas FiuNOisiro, Sept. 22.—A local
paper hns tha following to-day: "Some
of! tlie transcontinental agencies in
this city, are beginning to think thst
the Canadian Pacific Railway keeps
very wide awake agents in New -York,
Chicago and other city ih the east.
West bound shipments hy this line are
gradually increasing in spite of the
competition. The steamer Mexico
which arrived here on Tuesday brought
7 carloads of miscellaneous frieglit, all
all of whioh came by the Canadian
Pacific route. The cargo included 3
carloads of canned goods. The passenger business, both east and west
bound, continues good, and the agency
here il now securing a share of the
Australian business, much to the disgust of the Burlington road, which has
hitherto monopolized it. A rumor
was in circulation yesterday, that the
Canadian Pacific Co. in order to obtain
a large share of the annual immigration to tho Pacific Coast, has made a
round trip rate over their lines of ¥30.
M. M. Stern, the local agent of the
Canadian Pacific Co. states there is no
truth in the report. The only westbound round trip rato the Canadian
Pacific Compnny is how granting is
one of 8120. The Canadian Pacific
system has no intention, he says, of
demoralizing rates, and is as much interested in their maintenance as any
one else.
THIS MORSINfl'8 DEB PATCHES.
THE LAST MOMENTS.
San Fkancisco, Sopt. 23.—John
Keriiaghan, who beat out the brains
of his sister-in-law, Martha „ Hood,
with a hammer during a quarrel, in
October, 1886, and who is to expiate
his crime on the gallows at noon today, awoke at seven o'clock this morning from a four hours' aleep. He partook of a light breakfast of regular
prison fare. At 8:30 he wns removed to cell 41. next to the stairs leading
to the gallows. Here he engaged in
prayer and prayed fervently for fifteen
minutes, and then sought consolation
in the pages of the testament. A little later his cell wu entered by the
deputy sheriff, to whom Kernnghan
stated he had determined to meet
death stoically and make a statement
from tlie gallows. He said ho desired
reconciliation with his wife, whom he
has not seen for many months. Mrs.
Kerunghan was sent for, but up to 11
o'clock had not arrived. Everything
is prepared for the execution and it
will take place promptly nt noon.
Groups of idlers were standing outside
the jail, staring at tho blcnk walls of
tho place. A'few minutes after 11 tho
doomed man's wife came to the jail
and was immediately admitted to the
presence of her husband. The interview was a brief but iillecting ono.
The couple embraced, kissed and
parted, ill tho words nf Kernnghan,
"Ur meet in heaven." As tho bell of
the city hall pealed forth uoou, SlrcrilF
MoMann and his deputy left tho prisoner'! cell, followed by the latter, who
firmly walked up the stops uf the gallows. He then stopped to the iron
railing in front and mado the follow-
ing speech: "Gentlemen, if it hadn't
been fur drink, nnd if I hadn't been a
drunkard, I would never have sinned
agnii.st God in committing thii crime.
I was n crazy man when I did it. 1
have made my pence with God and am
ready tu meet death. O, death, whero
is thy stiii)?! O, grave, where is thy
victory." Kornnglinn was then bound,
the noose placed around hia neck, hia
head encased in a black can, and the
trap wns sprung at 12:05 Death was
instantaneous.

Yesterday   we  mentioned  that
Prof. Saunders, director of experimental farms, wu in the city and
proposed to inspect aome parts of
the district so as to be able to report intelligently as to the best location  for   tho   British   Columbia
farm.    Prof. .Saunders left yesterday to fulfil the object of his mission, and in a few days his report
will probably be in the hands of the
minister of the interior.     It is of
great importance that no mistake
should be mado in the location of
this farm.   Such a mistake at the
beginning could not oasily be rectified, and might very -audi reduce
the usefulness of  the institution.
There is not any very marked difference in the general circumstances
ot the different settlements in this
district with respect to climate and
soil.    In some places the rainfall is
greater than in others, and, of course
there  is good and bad soil everywhere.   But the temperature and
general' conditions are much the
same; and '.for that matter it would
molte veij little difference on which
side  of  the river  the farm was
placed, or whether it was near the
eastern or western boundary of the
district.   There are other considerations, however; which ought not to
be overlooked.    The experimental
farm, being intended for the benefit
of the people of this provinceyo'ught
to be where it will be euy of access
from all quarters. 'This district is
divided by the Fraser River, which
il one of the great avenue's of gravel
and trade.    It is also traversed-by
the Canadian Pacific Bailway, which
connects us directly with the interior and the rest of -the continent.
The farm ought to lie contiguous
to both these avenues if possible,
because  that  is  the* position that
will bring it within the convenient
reaoh of the largest number of people;   It is important, also, that the
farm should be as near as circumstances will permit to the cities of
the district.   Every business man
who hu attentively considered the
circumstances- necessary to success
recognizes the value of advertising;
and experience " has  demonstrated
beyond .question that no medium of
advertiiiog  is, so effective as the
coliamv'of .well-conducted  newspaper!. . JMilishers who have the
public 'Interest at heart (and most
of them have) are always ready to
lend the influence of their journals
to the advancement of any scheme
whose object is the good of the
state.   If the experimental farm is
to accomplish fully the objects for
whioh it is being established, it
must rely to a great extent upon
the publicity given by the press to
its achievements, for this is one of
the ways in which a knowledge of
its operations will be conveyed to
those whom it is expected to benefit.
But it thd farm is located at any
great distance from the cities where
the newspapers are produced upon
whose columns the people rely for
information, it  will  probably fail
perceptibly in its mission because
the opportunities of gaining information will  be  greatly abridged.
We suppose it hu been practically
decided to locate the experimental
farm in this district; and we now
suggest, for tbe reasons mentioned,
that it ought to he placed as near as
possible to the cities of the district
where  those who make the newspapers will have frequent and convenient opportunities  for making
themselves and the publio acquainted with ita operations.   Moreover,
tho question of hotel accommodation hi one tbat ought not to be lost
sight of.   When the experimental
farm hu blossomed into a thing of
beauty and usefulness, it will speedily become an object of great interest to all who visit this province for
the purpose of informing themselves
with   respect   to   our resources.
Where should a visitor more naturally look for proofs of our agricultural wealth  than  at the model
farm!   But if .the farm is situated
a long distance from the cities, and
remote from places where good hotel
accommodation   oan be obtained,
many persons  would bo deterred
from visiting it under such circumstances.'    Especially would this be
the case  with respect to persons
coming from the old country.   One
of tlieir first enquiries would be as
to hotel aowmaodation, and if these
enquiries could  not be answered,
satisfactorily many of them would
not visit tha farm.    Prof. Saunders
stated yesterday tbat one of the
places he had examined was Black's
ranch.     We presume by this is
meant the ranoh on the Pitt River
road just beyond the Coquitlam.   If
thia farm is found suitable in other
respects, it* situation is such as to
make it veiy desirable aa a location
for the experimental farm.   It is
only about a hill* from the West-
miaitar and Vancouver junction of
the 0. P. R., and it oan be reached
f ron either oity by railway or by
tha. wagon road, and it is easily accessible from all parts of the country.   Person! from a distance visiting it can find first-clan accommodation either at Westminster or
Vanoouver, from whieh they may

SECOND COMl'TBOLLEH'8 DEC1HIONS.
Ill tlio nutter of the claim ol P. A. Engineer K. A. Mngee for difference between
.-bore pay ami sea pay and ration, the
, irirond Comptroller bas rendered the
riirlowing decision:
With the exception ol the difference in
(lntes, tho facts in tho case at bar seem
i irntir'rrl with those in the case of V. S.
vs. lilsliopliai V, S., 51), wherein it la
bold lluit an otllccr serving on board the
Minnrsata iu 1.XR4 wns entitled to full sou
|niy. In view of that decision I should
int'isider the present claim to be as ull
four with tho it si cited, and should
nward full sea pay to the claimant for
r lie time Stated, liiul there not been raised
llie (|iiostlbii of a bur to the claim by ren-
son ol limitation of time, it being conceded that had the officer brought his
claim In the Court of Clniuis he would
have been barred by the statute of limi-
intions. Thu relations of the Court of
Claims to the accounting officers are In
. many respects analogous to those of
i ourts of equity lo courts of law, having
concurrent jurisdiction of the same sub-
j ct matter. Tlio well established rule
iu equity is that after a statute has set a
I nr of time lo n remedy in a court of law
ihe statute will be applied in (lie Court
ol' l'quilv. In admiralty courts the rule
of equity fori ridding tho prosecution of
stale demands, has obtained: but as a
statute uf limitation has never been ennc-
tr'd hy Congrcu, the statute of limitations
of Ihe local jurisdiction will not he followed.
... I am firmly convinced that rules
of limitation should be applied to the
time of filing claims against tho Government, both with the accounting officers
and in the Court of Claims. I can Bee
no good reason for according to persons
employed by Iho Government or to
those having claims against the Government, Ihe general right ol delaying for
un mm asoiinblo and unconscionable period the prosecution of their claim. Such
u right is prohibited us between Individ-
mils, and it would seem that the samo
rule should apply when thu Goveriifm-nt
stands in the position of party defendant.
It is quite unreasonable, that time-worn
claims should bu permitted to be brought
t.iid successfully prosecuted against tho
< ovtriiiueut mnny years after they became due. Nevertheless, an examina-
•linii of Hcvised Statutes, Section 101)11, or
nf the Act of March 3, 1S87, respecting
the jurisdiction of tho Court of Claims,
evinces no manifest intention of the legislate branch of the Government to up-
piy the statute of limitations to any other
claims or claims than those brought before the Court of Claims, the tribunal
th -rein named. Twice Congress has
thus legislateduponthissubject,although
its attention has been called many times
by the executive officers ot tho Govern-
in nt to what seem the very apparent
propriety und reasonableness of applying
a statute of limitations to claims against
tbo Government, whether brought in the
Court of Claims or before the accounting
olticeis. As I do not hold that the present claim can be considered a. stale demand, I shall allow it."

The annual report on Army matters
will soon be in order, and this year they
will be especially interesting. Many
changes of vital benefit to the Service
have been made since the autumn of
r, 1880. and munv more of equal value aro
' projected. Whito the newspapers have
( done their best to moke us believe that
II the Secretary of war and tho l.ieuteiiunt-
lieuirrtl commanding the Army are continually at loggerheads, and thnt even the
President and the Secretary havo had
their little "tills" over Army matters, yet.
i: we are to judge by known results ana
actions, we should say that the utmost
harmony has prevailed, and that each
boa done his best, in his place, to further
the material interest* and uphold tha
dignity and efficiency of the Army. Improvements and additions to barracks
and quarters at most-needed points have
been made to the extent of the funds
allotted. New barracks and quarters,
projects for new posts and enlargement
of others at points where concentration
ol troops is desirable, are veil under way;
important additions to the outfit of the
enlisted men have been made, and other
useful things done which we need
scarcely recapitulate. Above all, we are
soon to have a revised and condensed
book of regulations, a veritable boon aa
so many will certify. We happen to
know just how much care and economy,
nnd cheese-paring, a little here and a
little there, ft takes to make the appropriations go around In anything like
decent shape, and, therefore, we are able
to bestow sincere praise upon the
supreme functionaries who have to regulate all these matters. We hope the
next Congress will fully appreciate what
lias been done and what is still to do,
i and further, consistently and intelligently,
the efforts of those whose only-desire Is
to do their duty, and nothing but their
duty,
AS OLD DOOBIIIKT.
Col. J. P. Nicholson, so well known for
his knowledge ol military literature, has
rescued and printed from the original
innnuscript, an interesting ancient local
record. It is tha "Return of the Pennsylvania Troops In the Service of the
Oni ted States, Angus* T, 1787," com-
miinded by JoaJah Barmar, Esq,, Lieutenant-Colonel commanding. It Is dated
camp at Post Vincennes (Ohio), August
7,1787, and Is addressed to "His Excellency, Benjamin Franklin, Esq., President, and tht Honorable, The Supreme
Kxecutiva Council, Pennsylvania.'* It
shows a foul ot 222 rank and file from
Pennsylvania, Lieutenant-Colonel Har-
' mnr commanding, and Captain Finney.
Captain Ziegler, Captain McCurdy and
Ciiptai n Ferguson in charge of the various
companies and posts included in the
establishment. Colonel Nicholson has
added many valuable notes in reference
to the places and persons mentioned in
the "Return." Hla notices ofthe various
officers revive ths memory of men who
deserve all honor, tt may be said that
from this bandful of men sprang the
Aru.y of the United States, and everything thai throws light on its original or-
s'unitatioa deserves a place in our hiitori-
ca. records, marking the centennial of its
(lUan.s, new to near at hand.

  OP TUB ATLANTA.
From what can be gleaned by inquiry
of some of those who woro on board the
II S. {*, . l/'o;il'f during the recent events
on that ship it uprpears that tho injury to
the ship itself by the experimentation
with her battery was of the most uiiiin- '
i
jiortant character, The doors torn Irom
their hinges were the light doors ori ihe
upper part of Ihe supurstructur ■, socitrd
by.very light brass hinges, soniu of t!i m

stood tho wear and tear of ship's usug',
were not properly strengthened before
the gun trials, and broko during tlio
firing, have beon repaired on board since
thu conclusion of target practice. Tho
Atlanta was aground about a luilf-li mr,
but fortunately there was no sea on, so
injury wiib confined to the loss of ul.o.it
eighteen inches from the end of a propeller blade. The wild utterances s en

fatal injury to the hull, is simply chi.l'.
The fault is in the gun earring s und
their fastenings, unless, indeed, there is
something ill what is said by a well-
informed correspondent who writes us:
"Tho Iriul of the Attanta't guns shows
thnt the gun is too light for the clinrje,
rather than that tho carriage is too light,
for ono pound added to the weight of tlio
gun itself will be found moro ell'ectnel
than two pounds added to tbo carriage,
which must be mado ol pieceB bolted together.
ENROLMENT 07 YACHTSMEN.
Captain S. Samuels publishes a letter
advocating the enrolment of yachtsmen
in the jiroposod Naval Reserve, saying:
"The importance of yachting is very little
understood by the general public. It is
looked upon merely as a luxurious extravagance. Yachting brings into play
quick perception, fine calculation and
courage, which are the prime requisites
of a true sailor. What a powerful auxiliary to our Navy our yachtsmen would be
if properly enrolled as a naval reserve I
Our naval officers could not compute
with tliom in handling small craft used
in harbor defence. We cannot overestimate the importance of yachting, or
give it too much encouragement, considering tho immense sums spent by
yachtsmen annually to -perfect themselves in seamanship, not for m ney
remuneration, but as patriots, 'ill y
fully appreciate the loss ol our niari.ini r
power, which was the nursery lor our
Navy. This knowledge stimulates thoir
actions quite as much and more bo thin
{rlcasiire-seeking. Theso gentlemen, who
orin a body of over thirty thousand nr n,
including their employees, nre not o'liivi-
ous to thu apathy of their members of
Congress towards the shipping interest,
and will Bee to it at the next ballnt-lrox
that those sent to the halls of legislation
shall make the effort to restore our Hug to
its former prestige upon alt seas."
LAlltln CONTRACT.
The contract made by the Navy De-
Earteinent with the lloti-hkiss Co. is for
etween ninety und ono hundred guns of
various sizes, Irom the l-|xnmdur to the
S3-poundcr. Thu ll-pounder and the Impounder arc the two largest sizes now
made. They are both umler trial by tho
English, the French and thu liussiun
Governments. Neither of those two
sizes has yet been adopted us standard
by any of these leading Governments,
and it will probably be three or four
months beforo the tests are comjileteil.
Already the HotchkissCo. have furnished
Kill guns to the Government of the United States. As soon as a Kuropeun Government tested und adopted the gun it
was stipulated that it should be made in
that country. Secretary Whitney has
now marie the demand thnt other* Governments previously made, and henceforth all tlio llotchkiss guns to bu supplied to tlie United States Government
will be manufactured in this country.
Ex-Lieutenant Very, the American representative of tho Hatchkiss Co. has arranged with Pratt and Whitney, of Hurt-
ford, Conn., to manufacture thu guns,
and the ammunition will be made by the
Winchester Company of New Haven,
Conn. Thoy are putting down new
plant for the purpose. The present order
thoy expect to execute In about eight
TALL MEN IK TBE MJL1TIA.
The English militia does not show
much better in regard to stature than in
numbers. A man over six feet in height
is quite a ram avis in the force, there
being only 808 out of 114,4811 who ean
boast that distinction. On the other
band, just one quarter of the total strength
is represented as under five feet, five
inches, and 20,000 odd between that
height and five feet, six inches.
In former years, therefore, when a
higher standard was prescribed, most of
these men would have been rejected as
undersized. These statistics certainly
beat out the public belief, founded on
the evidence of eyesight, that tho constitutional force is not what it should be In
the matter of physique.

NAVAL ACADEMY.
The United States Naval academy was
founded in 1845. The buildings were
transferred from the war to the naval
dopartement, and in these midshipmen
who were from time to time on Bhore
wero given instructions in naval matters.
In 1841) the school was reorganized, the
coarse of instructions was revised and the
title changed from Naval school to United
States Naval Academy, and two years
later the term of study was fixed at four
years.

a very liberal offer by the company.
They have been only in existence one

One of Ladner's most well known
farmen, Mr. George Belroie, wm in
the city yesterday and favored this
office with a call. Ho says the grain
crops in his neighborhood havo been
completely and successfully harvested.
The heavy frosts of Tuesday and Wednesday nighti did not do nearly as
much damage ai waa expected; some
fields uf potatoes lettered slightly, but
that wu the extent of the damage except in a few trifling initancei.. The
long spell of fine weather hu made the
ground too dry for fall ploughing, and
many of the farmer! in the vicinity of
Ladners are likely to be late in getting
their cropi in next spring unless that
seuon seta in favorable and early. The
turners are all content with the results of their year's labor, and consider
that, nn tho whole, it hu been very
prosperous.

A Close Call.
What might havo been a. serious, if
not fatal accident, nappoiied oh one of
our jirincipal streets last evening. Mr.
Fulcs and his fnthor-in-lnw, Mr. Hunter Bet out for Port Moody, between 0
and 1 o'clock. Thoy proceeded
along Columbia street until
when crossing a small bridge, near the
residence of Dr. Molnnis, the horse
shied at a fir branch, thot had been
stuck in a break in tho bridge to warn
peoplo of tho dangerous Bpot. Before
the animal could'bo chocked it had got
ton far to the right and down it rolled,-
over the embankment to the bottom, a
distance of nearly 40 foet. Mr.. Hunter mntiaged to jump clour nf the vehicle and saved himself from injury,
but Mr. Fnlea was nut r»r lucky, and
sustained a number of bruises. The
dog-cat wus badly damaged but tho
horse escaped without a scratch. If
tho council thinks thnt sticking a fir
tree in a holo in a bridge is equal to
repairing it, tho publio do not look at
it in tho saino way, aud thoy would
liko in fututo to soo theBo breaks repaired in moro substantial manner. {Hnd
oithor of the gontlomon mentioned
abovo broken thoir nocks, the affair
might have provod serious for somebody. '
The Enterprising Tontb.
It is a matter of grave doubt whether the practice adopted by the police,
of giving 26 cents for each unlicensed
dog brought in, is a judicious one or
not. In tbe lint place, the inducement of 26 cents to tho small boy is
very great, and ho is apt to cause
trouble to himself and the neighborhood in his efforts to secure the eoveted
Bum. As an instance of what it haB already done, and is still further likely
to lead to, the following story will
show. , A young boy of nob more than
ten summers, the son of vory roipeot-
able parents, having hoard of the 26
cents offered by, the police .rr unlicensed dogs, made up his mind to pro-
fur by this unlooked for chance and
make somo money. Tho following
morning, after eating a vory hearty
breakfast, he was suddenly afflicted by
strange and numerous pains that
racked tho poor child's body in a terrible manner, and consequently the
alarm in the household was great. As
the hour for going to school had paued
before these pains had departed, the
boy, of course, was allowed to remain
at home. About half-past nine he was
observed making a lasso out of an old
clothes line, and about ten minutes
later he had disappeared, and a quarter
of an hour afterwards Iho next door
neighbor's dog had disappeared also.
The boy wm seen once more on the
street duringtho forenooijftnd, wonderful to say, another neighbor's dog
has boon missing over since.. The enterprising youth turned up at dinner
time in a very cheerful mood and with
an excellent appetite, having, to the
joy of his relatives, evidently recovered entirely from the severe attack of
pains he experienced in .the morning.
The joy of the family was short lived,
for aa the poor child was about to leave
for school he was suddenly attacked by
those terrible pains again, only much
more severely than .in tho morning.
Huty remedies were applied, and
Wizard oil wm freely expended on the
sufferer, but when relief cam* it wu
far too late to think of going to school
that day. Wonderful to relate, the
boy again suddenly recovered his usual
health, and in a few minutes was seen
to leave tlio premises with -a rope ill his
hand. During the time he wm absent
two more dogs disappeared from the
neighborhood, and nt night, the boy
who had been too ill to go tc school
had, by some mysterious process, become the proud possessor of four 26
cent pieces. The inference to be drawn
from this account of sn actual occurrence is easily to be arrived' at, and it
it will not be hard to disoovor that the
reward offered by the police is not
judicious.

Halifax correspondence.
Editor Columbian,—I was surprised
on reading that communication from
that young man now at Halifax for the
purpose of studying law. The style of
his letter reminds me of a nwty fly
seeking all the lore spots tn rest upon.
A person who hu never been from
Westminster and then finds himself in
a oity like Halifax would be but a
puor judge of anything he saw, and
yet the writer had tho impudence to
make comparisons. Halifax he represents as a smoke begrimed place, wliere
even tho rain fell dirty, foil of low
dives placed in dark lines aud alleys,
and more immorality in one block than
in all Westminster; numbers of drunken men, nnd lots of small hnys.and tbe
great want ol seeing Indian, and
Chinamen. Now, Mr. Kd".or, .xrliat
opinion can bo formed of such 11 writer?
There can be but one—that on" some
rainy day he took his umbrella «wd
wandered forth, and, true to nature,
