current Efents and Opinions,
Messrs. Muma and Ouimet for
some weeks pjist have been engaged
in investigating losses sustained
through the late rebellion. Throughout the Battleford district, among
both white sottlers and half breeds,
a great de*.1 of destitution *us found
to exist The Iossoh in the vicinity
of Battleford aro reported to be
heavier than at any other point, not
even excepting Batoehe. It is said
the arbitrators are anxious to have
as many claims as possiblo investigated and settled before tho winter
sets in. - This is commendable, but
while it is desirable that all legitimate losses should be made good
and relief afforded the, distressed
settlers as quickly as may be, the
greatest care should be taken that
the work of investigating the claims
advanced is not too hastily and
recklessly done and tbat bogus aud
exorbitant demands are not imposed
upon the country. The sharpers
have already reaped sufficient profit
out of the North-west rebellion.—
Globe.
Some telling revelations, throwing light upon the origin of tbe
rebellion, were made at the recent
meeting of the Presbytery of Brandon by Rev. Mr. Cameron, till lately
of Battleford. The speaker contended that the Indian uprising was
in a great measure due to tho character of the instructors and agents
appointed by Government. If the
Government officials had lieen tho
right kind of men the uprising
would never hnvo taken place. In
many cases their treatment of tho
Indians wns calculated to have a
most injurious effect—sonio of them
treating the Indians like dogs—never speaking to them without an
oath, and paying no regard whatever to their word. The'reverend
gentleman remarked that it would
spoil good. Indians to mako them,
like some of tho Indian Department
officials who are over them and supposed to be civilising them. Uov.
Mr. Flett, another missionary, corroborated the testimony of Mr.
Cameron.—Hamilton Times.
It is fashionable iu some quarters
to represent the political warfare in
Canada as much more violent and
vicious than anything countenanced
by the press and politicians of England. The claim, however, cannot
be supported by facts. Never were
more brutal attacks made upon the
most base of Canadian politicians
than were made upon Mr. Gladstone by the English Tory press in
connection with the death of General Gordon. Never were unsavory
scandals involving the characters of
prominent politicians used in Canada
as the Dilko and Pearce scandals
are being used in England. The
fact is, the tone of political discussion in Canada is just ns high
ns the tone of political discussion anywhere else, not even excepting England, whose practices we aro
so frequently and so pharisaically
rurgetl to. follow.—Toronto Globe,
'There must, then, be a very wido
ilield for improvement both iu Can-
nda and England. Tho tactics resorted to in this country for political
effect are a disgrace to civilization,
and they would not be tolerated a
moment if employed in any other
sphere.
It ii very well known that nny
person discovering a printer's error
in an Oxford Bible will be paid a
guinea if ho will take the trouble
ti {mint it out to the Controller of
the Press—provided, of courso, that
it has uot boon discovered bofore.
The editions of the Sacred Scriptures issued by the University nro
very numerous, and from .one or
another of them errors aro now
and again pieked out, and several
timos during his term of office the
present controller has been called
upon for the guinea, aud has pnid
it. Wliun tho. revised Biblos were
about to bo issued, says Leisure
Hour, the question arose as to
whether guineas should lm paid for
printers' errors in this enormous
inu> pf entirely new print. Every
edition, of course, is an iilAependent
work of thc compositors nud proofreaders; and in un undertaking of
■uch magnitude it oould hardly be
doubted that mistakes would in the
aggregate be m'.rccroa:**' <utd prudence seemed to sugest that no undertaking should lie entcrril into
until the work had for a timo had
tie benefit of the gratuitous oriti-
cltjhi of the public. However, after
running the gauntlet of public scrutiny for a good month, only three
firinters' errors have been discovered
it all the editions. In the pearl
lOmo edition thero is an error in
Ezekiel xvili. 20, where nn "e" is
left out of righteous, and the word
is printed "rightmts." In the parallel 8vo edition there nre two mis-

takes. In Psalmn vii. 13, "shatfs"
appears instead of "slmfts, and in
Amos v. 24, iu tho niargii),..^overflowing" should he "overflowing,"
Of course thero may he others to
be found yet, but that so far only
these should have been brought to
the notice of the authorities is us-
touishing, considering tho magnitude of tiie enterprise.—The Week.
The Kiel Case.
Qubduo, Sopt. 4,~-Majur AUllett,
nn influential French Canadian now in
the United States, aends a communication to Kiel's sympathizers here, in
which ho gives the subatancebf mu interview with Secretary Bayard respecting Kiel's cose, an follows:—Is- The
American government will "not talto
the initiative in researches to bo made
to establish Kiel's title to American
citizenship or his rights iu tliat quality.
2nd. Up to the present the Amerioun
government has not given any attention to the question beyond inquiring
from the wnr department as to the
truth of the statement that Kiel was
made a prisoner on American soil.
This inquiry having been made on the
demand of a citizen of the city of New
York, who asked for information on
the subject. 3rd. The U. S. government will uot consider the question in
any way unless presented for consideration in a formal manner with state-'
ment in writing of the facts and arguments upon which the application is
based. 4th. The government is not
disposed to investigate facts or review
the proceedings of the court which
paused judgment on Riel unless it is
shown Kiel's trial was conducted according to more rigorous methods
than would be adopted iu the trial of
a subject of Her Majesty .the Queen
under like circumstances. 5th, The
government recognizes tlio principle
that every country has a right to determine for itself what constitutes
treason, and is not disposed to question the right Canada has to try Riel
for treason.
——■       ■»■
Is Gen. Gordon Alive?
Col. C. Chnillo Long, tho African
traveller and explorer, to a New York
Time* representative said:-
"I fully coincide with Col. Burton's
views, aud havo expressed the same
long ago. You will have noticed that
no two of the many reports of his
death ngreo, He was murdered in the
streets on his way to tho residence of
the Austrian Consul, says one; he was
stabbed from behind while sitting in
his room reading the Bible; he was
shot while standing sword in hand on
the walls of the citadel; he was shot
wliite standing on the.roof of tha
palace looking through liis Hold-glass
nt the approaching enemy. These are
somo of thc many accounts of his
death. The same confusion exists in
the reports about what became of his
body after his death. We have been
told that his head was sent to the
Mahdi, thnt it was stuck on a lance
and planted ou the wall of tho citadel;
that his body was dragged naked
through the streets, frightfully mutilated, until it was hacked into ah ir-
recognizable mass of flesh. What faith
can you put iu any such
CONTHADIOTOHY  STOKIB8?
From iny knowledge of Arab methods,
Gordon's head, or some unmistakable
evidence of his death, would have been
sent to the nearest English post
Nothing would have given the Mahdi
greater satisfaction, thau this terrible
proof of his triumph. I do uot believo
that Gordon is dead, but thnt ho escaped with as many of his followers as he
could savo when he saw that further
resistance would be uboIcss. The idea
of being rescued by an English oflicer
—by Wolseley—would havo been a
terrible blow to his vanity. Ho fled
more from Sir Garnet Wolseley than
from certain death. He folt that it
would bo better lo die in trying to
escape than to be rescued. That, I am
sure, was Gordon's sentiment. He
had eight steamers ac his disposal.
Four of these he bad previously sent
down to Motemneh, aud I .irmly boliove that he took the other four, with
as many men and as much provisions
and nntmunitiiin ns hu could gather,
and made his way to Gondoeont,
Once out of tho reach of Khartoum,
ho could
KSl'Al'i: WITH I'EUFBUT SAFETY.
Having nrrived in Gondpoora, which
is 1,500 miles south of Khartoum,
heaven only knows what he may do
thore. It would be a truly Gordonian
coup de theatre to organize a fopce
there, whore ho is well-known and beloved by many, nnd move again northwards to tho rear of the invsdjng
Mahdi. Or he may tu ,i toward tho
Congo until ho reaches Nyangwe, one
uf tho eastern stations on the great
river. His march would lead him
through the country of the friendly
King M'Tse, whom Mr. Stanley .converted to Christianity, and who would
givo htm every assistance. Onco in
Nyungwu, ho could assume the functions whicli tho King of tho Belgians,
as the hoad of tho International So*
oiety, conferred upon him. There ia
stdl n third oourso open to him. He
may. push eastward from Gondocnn
aiid without great difficulties, fay tht
road which I have opened, reach the
coast, A year may elapse before we
can hear from him. I will not give up
for n long time the hopo of meeting
and slinking hands once moro with this
man of miraculous oscapes,"
In San Francisco, lately, a inan
drawn as a trial juror failed to appear
and was pronounced .in contempt of
court. Next day ho appeared and explained thnt he had been under arrest
for cheating at face, I -The judges nc-
coptod the excuse, 'purged him of contempt, and ho went cheerfully to duty
in the panel.
A youngster of 5 wns sont to the
nearest barber's shop to havo his hair
eut, "How do yon want it cut?" said
tho barber. "All mowed off for the
summer?" "No; I wan't it out with a
hole in tt, like papa's!"

A somewhat remarkable statement will be found in another column respecting the court established
for the adjustment of tho Alabama
claims. This court, it seems, hns
become a sort of permanent barnacle, and grows fat and fearless
upon the public treasury. It does
not seem to be doing anything more
than spending money upon itself.
The new administration, like the
proverbial broom, sweeps clean, and
will probably wipe this parasite out
of existence. There is still a largo
balanco of the Geneva award remaining unexpended iu the United
States treasury, with no probability
of its being legally claimed. It
has several times been suggested
that this balance should be returned
to Great Britain.
session are just as much entitled to
the extra 8500 as they are to the
ordinary 81,000 as compensation
for an ordinary session. But it
may be open to question whether
the legislation which kept the house
so long in session is worth the extra
cost to tho country. Thc new
franchise bill is chiefly responsible
for the extra length of the session,
and it iB a measure which very few
people seem to regard with favor.
It certainly found no sympathy in
this province.
It is quite possiblo that the order
of President Cleveland for the removal of cattlo from Indian lands
may lead to more serious results
than any one apprehended. It is
said that tliere aro about fivo million hend of cattle now grazing on
Indian lands, and that it would be
morally impossible to remove them
inside of many months. Moreover,
the cattle kings do not intend to
obey the president's order, but will
resist it and fight to the end, It ia
stated that Gen. Butler is personally interested in this cattle business, and that he has been employed
hy tl\e cattle men to institute proceedings for the purpose of proteot.
ing their interests. From nll accounts it seems quite certain that
if an attempt is made to enforce
the president's order these men will
show fight at once, and will make
use of all the implements within
reach.  ^——^
During the first half of this year
Great Britain imported 29,726,195
owt of grain. Of this amount
333,588 cwt. came from Canada,
1,713,684 from Australia, 4,317,-
158! from' British India, 5,113,600
from Russia, and 16,9)0,391 from
the United States. From these
figures it will be seen that the great
bulk ol Britain's'wheat supply continues to come from the United
States, notwithstanding the competition of India and other new
fields. Of Britain's jtit'al supply
the United States contributed 52
per cent. Last year she contributed
59 per cent., and a little over 50
per cent, in 1883. The variation
does not indicate a decline. In the
first half of this year there was
shipped to Britain from the United
States 7,299,324 cwt. of flour,
against 5,164,343 for 1884 and 6,-
405,940 for the year previous. Over
70 per cent, of the flour imported
into Great Britain comes from the
United States. It does not seem
that Indian competition in wheat
and flour is making any perceptible
difference to American farmers.
Some very disgraceful proceedings have been taken by the miners
at Rock Springs, 250 miles west
of Cheyenne, Wyo., with a view to
driving Chinese labor out of that
region. The Union Pacific Railway
Oo, owns large coal mines at Rock
Springs, and a large number of
Chinamen were lately imported to
work in these mines. The white
miners foresaw in this a danger to
themselves and resolved upon a
prompt suppression of the evil.
They made an armed raid upon the
Chinese, drove them out of the
place, burned tlieir houses and
goods, shot ten or eleven of them
dead, and chased the rest to the
mountains. The fugitives went for
refuge to Evanston, where thero are
about 1,000 more celestials, and are
now organized for self - defence.
However improper and dangerous
may be the introduction of Chinamen into the coal mineB of Wyoming,*' the circumstances could not
justify such a murderous attack as
that of Rock Springs, and it is to
be hoped the men who have been
guilty of it may be brought to punishment speedily.
It is said that Hon. Alex. Mackentie haB returned to the federal
treasury the 8500 extra sessionnl
allowance granted on account of
tht unusual length of last session,
and out of this circumstance certain politicians are endeavoring to
make political capital The ground
upon whioh Mr. Mackenzie returned
the money was not, we believe, the
ground assumed by these politicians.
Daring the session he was absent a
great deal of the time on account
of ill health, and did not feel that
he had by attendance earned any
extra indemnity. But we are of
opinion that those members who
guve the usual attendance nt th.
Conflict or Authority.
Affairs at Fnrwell seem to be assuming a very lively attitude. The
conflict between provinoial and federal authority, which has been
■hawing itself more or less for
unny months, now threatens to precipitate a breach of the peaco.
There mny bo a good deal that is
sensational in tho Colonist's report
which we publish in another column, but it may bo fairly assumed
thnt theie nre really grave fears of
bloodshed. It is a pity that such a
condition of things should be allowed. Both the federal nnd provincial oificers have been sent to
Fnrwell ostensibly for the prescription of peace, and they nre not
only not preserving it but are setting an example of lawlessness
themselves thnt innkes their presence worse tban useless. The wholo
trouble seems to have come out of
the determination of selfish and
wicked men to sell whiskey in that
region in spito of all law, Thero
aro large numbers of saloons all
along tho line of railway construction, and they nre run generally by
the worBt characters that can be
found anywhere. Theso men oaro
nothing for law so long ns they nre
allowed to sell smuggled whiskey
to the thirsty rnilway navvies. We
do not know whose fault it is that
this traffic continues to exist; but
neither the Dominion nor the pro
vincial authorities have succeeded
in suppressing it. There nre snid
to be 30 saloons in Farwell alone,
not one of which holds a license!
Wo suppose the two sets of otlicials
will now turn their attention wholly
to fighting each other, while tho
saloon men and gamblers nnd blnck-
legs scoop in the sheckles without
restraint. This ollicial quarrel is a
regular pic-nic for them!
British Colombia Defences.
The Ottawa Free Press ot August
27th says: "It is expected that
General Middleton will within a
few dnys lenve for British Coiumbin
for the purpose of looking after tho
defences for that province and selecting a proper location for the
new "C" Battery of the regiment of
Canadian artillery. Cnpt. J. Peters,
who was in commnnd of n detachment of "A" Battery during the
Northwest campaign, is widely spoken of as the person likely to command the new buttery with the
rank of major. Coal Harbor is also
mentioned as the most probable location for the new battery." Later
ndvices state that Gen. Middleton
will he nccompnnied by Sir A.
Caron, the Dominion minister of
militia, nnd thnt they will nrrive
■ery shortly. Some time ago it was
stated iu The Columbian that the
battery would probably be located
at tho entrance of Burrard Inlet, so
ns to defend that important hnrbor
and the terminus of the C. P. R.
in case of war. It seems that the
people of Victoria, who have always
manifested nn extraordinary nntipa-
thy towards anything that would
benefit the mninlnnd without conferring equal ndvnntages upon Victorin, sot themselves at once to prevent the establishment of this bnt-
tery on the mainland. The Victoria Board of Trade (an organization which falsely assumes to represent the province, and which
unfairly takes tho namo of tlio British Columbia Board of Trade) sent
a protest - to Ottawa, generously
proposing that tho battery should
be stationed nt Victorin or Ksqui-
mnlt, nnd not on the mainland as
recommended by tho military authorities. Then the Victoria Colonist attempted to prove tlint there-
was really no need of any military
defence for British Coiumbin beyond
the protection of Victoria and Esquimau, and when Tim Columiuan
took exception to that view and
intimated that protection wns also
required for New Westminster,
Burrard Inlet and Nanaimo, tho
Colonist charged it with being "intensely sectional." At the present
time the people of Victorin are urging eaoh other to give the minister
of militia nnd the general suoh a
warm reception that they may feel
themselves forced iuto conceding
everything Victoria asks in the way
of military establishments. The
press iB discussing the question, and
the various public bodioB nre moving. It is quite certain that a supreme effort will be made on the
arrival of the military authorities to
corrall the whole military establishments of the country nnd plant
them nbout Victoria. Now, the
peoplo of tho mainland do not care
how much military protection Aric-
toria gets, or how lnrge a sum she
ablo to draw from tho federal
treasury. Wo are not selfish enough
to interpose any obstnelo in the way
of Victoria's aggrandizement, so
long as it is not undertaken at the
expenso of tho rest of the provinco;
but when these people propose
deliberately to divert from tho mainland such institutions as havo
been determined upon, wo shall not
be silent witnesses of the interference. We shnll watch very closely
this latest attempt nt meddling with
provincial interests for local nnd
purely selfish purposes. It is not
at all likely thnt federal military
oflicers will allow themselves to be
influenced by Victoria's blandishments, but whon tho time for action
comes, if it does come, the mainland
will be heard from.

excuse for the many pale, snllow, weary
looking fcmnlea throaghout our lniul,
when Burdock Blood Hitters will regulate their troubles uud renew their health,

Exhibition Regulations.—Mr. Mc-
■Phetvidge, trattio manager of the C.
Pi U. in this province, has issued Bpe-
citic instructions to all railway agents
respecting freight and passengers for
the annual exhibition iu this city on
-tho 1st and 2nd prox. Poisons coming to thu exhibition must say bo when
purchasing their tickuts, aud thoy will
be entitled, ou payment of one full
fare, to got return ticket-) from Port
Hammond or Port Moody. These
tickets will bo good for return until
the 10th October, but will not bo sold
aftor thu 1st. The arrangements for
freight are somewhat similar. One
full rate will be paid at the point of
shipment, aud the goods will be returned freo. The shipper will ho provided with a receipt upon which tho
railway agont will mako this endorsement: "Articles for exhibition at agricultural ahow, New Westminster, entitled to return transportation free, if
offered for sueh transportation at Hammond or Moody on or before Oct. 10th,
1885." This receipt is to be kept and
presented to tho railway agent at Port
Hammond or Port Moody when freight
•is offered for return.. Exhibitor must
also obtain from thu secretary of the
association a certificate stating that the
articles have actually been exhibited at
the show, and unless this certificate is
presented to thu agent at Port Hammond or Port Moody free return transportation will bu refused. It is not
necessary that thu whole of tho shipment should bo returned in order to
secure free transportation. These regulations nre very simple, and should bo
remembered by all persons intending
to patronize the exhibition.

and uilus that ''its miles are large and

Condition of the G, P. R. Truck.
Iu an interview at Victoria the other
day a Colonist reporter obtained tho
following statements from Mr. J.
Hanoy, superintendent of tho Ondordonk contract: "Between two > and
three thousand white and Ohinese employees have been discharged within
tho past ten days, all that are now
retained on construction work being
these engaged in surfacing, track-laying and bridging. Tho Texas lake
sawmill is closed down, thu lumber
and timber for the contract being all
cut, while nearly nll the bridges are
framed. The genera! force nlong the
line operated from Moody to Savona
haa been reduced as has also that in
the machine shops, and everything is
now being dono to facilitate the cloning
of tho Onderdonk work.
The govornmont contract (from
Moody to Savona) was accepted from
the contractor about the middle of
July last. Tho govornment have uot
yet assumed control of tho line, but
the probability is that thoy will do so
on tho 1st of Ootober. By this time
it is expocted that the Onderdonk syndicate contract will be completed tu
OritUn Lake. The rails are nuw laid
to withirt a short distance of Eagle
Pass landing, while tho grading ie all
completed to Griffin lake.
Mr. Peterson, O.K., the syndicate
agent has finished his examination of
tho road and returned east over tho
mountains. Ho made a most careful
investigation, going thoroughly into
details, nnd is a competent and experienced man. His report is, of
course, not yot mnde public. There
aro rails enough on this oud to lay the
track tu within twelve miles of Griffin
lake, which ia 340 miles from tho terminus of-Port Moody. The remaining
dozen miles will be laid from the east
by the syndicate.
The lst of Ootober will thus complete a feat in railway building that
has never before been equalled on the
American continent. The nature of
tho country through which the line has
been constructed is without parallel,
while the quality of the road handed
over to the government by Mr. Onderdonk iB of the very finest kind, and
this notwithstanding tho almost insurmountable obstacles  that had to be
Mutiny at Sea.
I Capt. Jones, of tho bark Hermine,
mado the following statement to a
pohniet reporter at "Viotoria the other
day: After leaving Liverpool my brother, who accompanied us as far as the
pilot, told me that he thought there
would be trouble on tho voyage out, as
he did not like the look of the crew.
I did not take much notice at the time
other than to keep my eyes open until
the actions of my men convinced me
that something was wrong, and upon
examination some days after I found
that the cargo had been breached. I
ordered my mate to fasten down the
hatches, which he did; but to no avail,
tor the men crept down the hold
through a skylight at night and committed their depredations in a much
mure daring manner. Oue day as a
squall was coming up I
'• '  ORDERED ALL HANDS ON DECK,
but to my astonishment all except tho
mates and apprentices remained below.
I went into the forecastle and found
the men drunk. Not cout ent with
stealing the provisions, they had broken through the tank and secured
several cases of liquor with which they
held a grand debauch. All this took
place in. the South Atlantic, and finding that it would be almost impossible
■lor me to round Cape Horne with my
crew in open mutiny, for you know
that a sudden squall would probably
have proved fata) without assistance to
manage my ship, I determined to bear
up to the Falkland Islands. Unfortunately, the men (who I afterwards
learned had determined to throw my
apprentices overboard some stormy
night as we were rounding the Cape in
order to keep their plans from being
revealed), discovered my object and
determined to
TAKE THE SHIP AT ONI  ..
I was informed by a man in the forecastle of their plans, aud on going forward hoard the ring-leader, a vet/
dangerous man named Clerk, tell one
of the other men that the mate and
myself had revolvers, and if they
could get them the taking of the ship
would be an easy mutter. That night
was intensely dark, und fearing & surprise I put my revolver in the front
pocket of my trousers in order to have
it handy. About 10 o'clock the mutineers came aft in a body and ran up
to the poop on which I was standing.
The ringleader, a strong, powerful
man, seised me and felt for my revolver in the back pocket of my
trousers, Not finding it thore he ordered some meu to sie:;e the mate who
was unarmed, and I eluded Clerk's
gruBp and sprang for the cabin stairs.
Ho immediately followed me, when
drawing my pistol I fired, the ball
penetrating his body a few inches below the heart. I expected to see him
fall down; but instead of that he
turned and walked forward never uttering a word. The other men followed him und the mutiny was virtually at an end. This man Clerk wus
the most extraordinary man I oyer
met, and the only man I ever feared.
Ho had all the
OTHER MEN UNDER IUH CONTUOL
and seemed to make them do what he
pleased. He died the next day. On
his deathbed he told tho men he was
a free mason, and had a book full cf
hieroglyphics which he asked them to
throw overboard with a set of burglar's tools which he possessed, and his
other effects. There orders the men
carried out. I never went forward
until after the man died. We arrived
at the islands a few days afterwards
where I was tried and acquittei1. At
the coroner's inquest tho jury brought
iu a verdict of guilty of manslaughter;
but in the supreme court I was honorably acquitted. Two of the sailors
were found guilty of being ringleaders
in the mutiny and sentenced to long
terms of imprisonment.
A Danukrous Condition-.—One of the
most dangerous conditions is a neglected
Kidney complaint. When you suffer
from weary aching baok, weakness ami
other urinary troub es, apply to the back
a. Burdock Porous Plaster, and take Burdock Blood Bitterc, the best system regulator known for tho Liver, Kidneys,
Stomach and Bowels.
From Blp Bend.
Farwell, Aug. 25.- Tho Big Bend
excitement still continues, and from all
reports a quartz development has beon
made at last whioh will pay big. Tho
mines are located ou McCulloch creek
welt up towards tho elbow of the Big
Bend about 00 miles north of here.
About forty minen aro now in there
and 25 locations have boen recorded.
Although somewhat difficult cf access
at the present time the provincial government are making a trail tu tho
mines which will mako them comparatively easy to get at. About 20 miles
of this trail are already completed and
the remaining SO miles will be pushed
forward ns rapidly as possible. Some
minen who oame down for supplies a
few days ago brought with them some
specimens, which were immensely rich,
the gold being visible to tbo naked
eye, and which would probably assay
away up iu the thousands. There is
about 40 feet in gravel placer diggings
on top of the ledge. The Barrett* Bell
party ara putting iu a tunnel two miles
abovo the mouth uf tho gulch, and expect tu run about 200 feet before striking bed rock. Just below them the
Lyons' party are preparing to put in a
Hume four feet wide and two feet deep.
The Lyons' party are prepared to spend
teu thousand dollars iu development.
and when they get fairly started will
employ from 12 to 20 men. Othor
developments aro also being made hy
other parties. Every one is most sanguine of success, and it is expected
that there will be a big camp on McCulloch creek next summer. It must
be borne in mind, however, that those
diggings aro not by sny means "poor
man's diggings," as it takes considerable money to devolop and those who
bave nut sufficient "dust" had bettor
keop away. After tho completion of
tho railway in proportion to tho success uf these mines will Farwell prosper, The administration of criminal
law which is vested iu Mr. Sproat.
stipendiary magistrate, has beon well
attended to and taking into consideration the large number of men who
come in here and the natural tendency
to crime in a country as yet hardly
civilized, the number of offences committed has been very small. A wholesome respect for tho luw seemB to prevail throughout the district, and
beyond a few drunks and an occasional
gambling quarrel, but littlo trouble
occurs. This is largely owing to the
firm stand taken by the stipendiary
magistrate ever since hiB nrrival here
and reflects credit on his administration.— Times Cor.

HIGH-HANDED PROCEEDINGS OF POLICE.
Farwell, Aug 27.—In tho court today Magistrate Sproat issued a warrant
for tho arrest of a Dominion official for
wilfully obstructing u provincial constable. Previous to this, two provincial constables had been placed in the
lock-up by the Dominion police. One
was sentenced to fourteen days' imprisonment by Police Commiuioner
Johnson; the other escaped prior to
his receiving sentence, and laid an information before Mr. Sproat against
the Dominion police. Mr. Sproat issued another warrant for thoir arrest.
Constable Miles, of tho provinoial police, was executing this warrant, when
he was arrested by five of the Dominion
police, and Police Commissioner Johnston sentenced him to 14 dayB* imprisonment. Immediately Magistrate
Sproat became aware of tho now turn
of affairs he issued warrants for tho arrest of all concerned in tho arrest and
imprisonment of Miles nud sworo in
20 special provincial police to make arrests,
Aug. 2iS.—Johnston, Dominion polico commission, nnd three constables
of tho Dominion force, are arrested
and safely lodged in jail, and their
trial is expected to take place to-day.
The Dominion police are barricaded in
their barracks hero, armed with rifles
and 70 rounds of ball cartridges, and
as public sentiment is strongly against
them war is expeoted to the knife.
Telegrams have been sent to Sir John
Macdonald, Ottawa, reporting tho condition of affairs. Capt. Steele and
Col. Horohmer, with a squad of
mounted police are on their way here
from Calgary. The Dominion police
are acting in a most unaccountable
manner all along tho line of the C. P.
R., seizing liquor, fining men without
holding court, and pocketing the proceeds. They are also searching houses
without warrants and compelling the
occupants to pay from $20 to $30
blackmail. Lively times and bloodshed may be expected before long, as
the inhabitants all sympathize with the
authorities, and are very determined,
The universal enquiry of everybody is,
what is to bo done to stop the present
high-handed and blackmailing Bystom
of oppression 1 Sheriff Redgrave is
now on his way to seizo the stocks of
railway contractors who have not paid
their provincial taxes in the event of
their nut liquidating them at once.—

The following report fr.om Mr. G,
M. Sproat, provincial stipendiary
magistrate, addressed to tho attorney-
general, has just been received at Victoria: "Since tho approach of greater
numbers of workmen to this place
crimes have considerably increased.
There also hns been an outbreak on
tbo part of Mr. Johnston, commissioner of polico, and his special constables. They defied the law and the
court, rescued a prisoner from lawful
custody, assaulted aud imprisoned two
provincial policemen, pursued another
one, assaulted and imprisoned an innocent messenger sent by Mr. Kirkup,
threatened to arrest myself and every
officer connected with ths province,
and marched into the chief streets of
this town liko cowboys on a raid.
Recognizing thnt this waB civil war,
nud that the situation created was
military, I arranged to tako the barracks with an overwhelming force of
police and volunteers, under my personal command, ul un early hour on
Suturdny morning; but having fortunately succeeded by a dash, during the
night, in capturing tho ringleaders,
Johnston, Rhodes and a man called
Fane, the necessity for an attack did
not seem immediate; though two provincial policemen, oue of whom is
John Miles, are still imprisoned.
Having, bu fur, reasserted tho powor of
the law, I have held my hand arranging through channels here (as tlm provincial government cannot he quickly
communicated with) that tho facts
should bo mndo known to Sir John
Macdonald by telegram. I now await
events. I do not require any assistance; but iu caao anything happened
to mo, seeing that Mr. John Kirkup
has t i attend to the court house and
gaol, it might bu well if Mr. Royoraft
paid us a visit.
Iu thc meantime tho Dominion policemen are practically confined to thoir
barracks. A squad of mounted police
proper, it is s.iid, are immediately ex*
Sacted nnd the future (unless Sir John
lacdonald takes suitable steps at
once) may somewhat depend on tha
good sense of thoir officer. Under
any circumstances I will not permit
any obstruction to the law. To show
the lawlessness of these policemen, n
messenger sent by Mr, Kirkup st Mr.
Johnston's request from prison for
something he wanted was assaulted
and imprisoned by them at tho bnr-
racks. Another, yesterday, on a similar errand, was met nour the barracks
and warned not to nppiTmch; but he
tied his handkerchief on a stick and
knocked ut the door with this "Hag of
truce." A policeman opened it aud
presented n revolver, whereat the messenger, Mr. Garden, an old soldier,
laughed heartily and pointed to his
flag. This tinges the affair with the
burlesque. These policemcu seem
frightened out of their wits by their
situation before tho law and the prompt
incarceration of their ringleader. Thuy
must all be severely punished. This
trouble is nut connected with any
assumption as to tho constitutionality
of acts or pending questions. It is a
pure outbreak against the law of Canada respecting tho administration of
justice,—I am, sir, your obedient ser-
Tlie Alabama Award.
HOW THE COMMISSIONERS SPEND THE MONEY
Washington, Aug. 25.—The First
Comptroller of the Treasury to-day
made a ruliii" that is likely to embarrass tbe Court of Commissioners of
Alabama Claims for some time to
come. It is in effect that lhe employment of the twenty-four persons borne
on the rolls of the Court is entirely
without warrant of law, and that no
payments can legally be made froni the
treasury on their account in the future. Mr. Andrew H. Allen, disbursing agent of tho Court, recently made
requisition on the Socretary of the
Treasury for 8!),000 to meet tho current expenses of the court. In the
usual course of business the requisitions came before the First Comptroller, aud he decided to make an investigation into the affairs of tho court
before authorizing the issue of the
uecessary warrants. His conclusions
are summarized in the following statement, prepared by him for publication:
The Court of Commissioners of Alabama Claims was created iu 1874 to hear
proof of tho claims to be paid out of
the 815,000,000 awarded >y lhe Geneva Commission, and was continued by
various Acts until December 31, 1877.
It was constituted of five judges, with
an annual salary of $0,000 each, a
clerk at 93,000, and a stenographer at
$2,500, and an attorney to represent,
the United States at $8,000. Provision was also made for rent of court
room, furniture, stationery, fuel, and
other Incidental expenses, nil of which
were to bo paid out of said fund before
judgments were paid. The court was
reorganized in 1882 with the same officers and salaries as before except that
the number of judges wns reduced to
three.. Tho Comptroller in investigating the cuse found that outside of
above-named officers there were on the
pay rolls the names of assistant counsel for the United States, clerks to suid
counsel, experts, clerks to experts,
messengers, watchmen, etc., whose
aggregate salaries amounted to $34,500
per year. He also found in the quarterly returns that there has been paid
to other assistant counsel over $8,000
for the quarter ending December 31,
1884, and about $7,000 for the quarter
ending March 31,1885, besides other
alleged illegal payments. He says he
finds no law authorizing said payments,
und after consulting with the Acting
Secretary of the Treasury and with
the Solicitor of the Treasury, ho has
decided to atop all future payments of
the same.

Nkw York, Sept. 2,—General Stone's
report of expenditures on the Bartholdi
pedestal is still severely criticised, A
Pout writer says: ."According to Stons's
report the work hns cost alwit $(i0t0C3
more than ought to have been the cose.
The admitted cost so far, adding the
money which must be paid to the contractors when the pedestal is finished,
has been 3273,904. Gen. Stone's salary
for two years and four months Is f 14,-
000, which is to be added. The executive committeo has received about $290,-
000, so that the completion of the pedestal proper will find the committee
about $10,000 in debt, with the important costly work of putting up the statue

Four masked men boarded the day car.
Three of them climbed upon tho forward
platform and the fourth got on at the

end of the car, while the other two entered and with drawn revolvers commanded the passengers to give up their
money. A number of them handed out
a small amount of change. One man in
excitement passed -Mtt Ids purse, con-
turning $32. The robbers took whatever
was offered without searching the passengers and made no attempt to rob
them of jewelry, When tho pair had
readied ths middle of the car thoy became suddenly alarmed, and pulling the
bell-rope four times tho robbers sprang
off when tlie t.'ain slackened speed and
disappeared in the darkness.

Herrings Desert Ireland.
The most capricious of all crops has
this yenr proved unpropitious to Ire
land. Tlie Herrings have left Dublin
Bay, or rather they have uot como into
it. The accustomed shoals have lost
their geographical bearings. The Gulf
Stream is possibly to blame. Tho herrings were generally constant to the
bay, and year after year camo and were
caught with despatch, regularity and
profit. Other shoal tish shoved u tendency to be erratic, The sardines
were as capricious as ever they oould
be. You nover knew whero to tind
them. Thoy abandoned the Breton
coast, where tho fishermen had for
many years largely welcomed them,
and turned up without either rhyme ur
reason along tho seashore by Itochello,
the inhabitants being quito unprepared
for their reception, muoh of this "silvor of the sen" being hopelessly lost.
Ou another occasion they disappeared
altogether, and for the following year
pilchards and sprats were largely tinned and consumed at breakfast under
a flattering misnomer. But herrings
seem on the whole to be a faithful fish,
nnd in thc average of years oome and
nro caught with praiseworthy punctuality. This season they have altered
their route, uinitting Ireland from

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground Is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments, The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the ments of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Hen m crowd may be
•een listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Right well do tiie Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
Tlie present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unac
quainted with tlie business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secre
tary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; aud W. S. Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming, A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out about 200 organs and 50
Eianos per month. Tliese aro produced
y 250 hands, who receive in wages
about 915,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches in London aud Man*
Chester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. An 'nprigbi piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of a room, and Ts convenient for
comparatively email apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing witli oil for hours. The touch is
quick and easy, tiie tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos,
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured iu all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample orgaus are shown in the pcviliou.
Tlie largest organ whioh the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
preseut at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to Ite
blown by Turk's water motor, wliich has
heen placed iu position to await the
arrival of tliu big instrument. The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
pnrlor favorite. The casos show wonderful variety. Many of these aw of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship,
The case wliich secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is Largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs aro chaste in design and artis
tio in execution, llio musicians who
tested tlie organs affirmed that for sweet-
uess of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of tho cases.

HARPER A WtOI., H« fork. What Uo Some of the Most Noted Physicians of the Present Day say aboot Intoxicating Brinks?
A CONDENSED ANSWER FOR THE STUDY OF
TNE PEOPLE.
Dr. Carpenter, probably the most
noted physician and medical physiologist tiow living, says: "In tho average
man, the habitual use of alcoholic liquors, in mudcrato or oven in small
quantities, is not merely unnecessary
for the maintenance of bodily and
mental vigor, but it is unfavorable to
tho permanent enjoyment of health,
evon though it may for a timo appear
to contribute to it."
Sir Wm. Gull, a Fellow of the Koy-
al Society and Physician to Her Majesty Qucon Victoria, stated in his
evidence before the Lords committee
in 1877-78: "I Bhould suy froth my
experience, that alcohol is tho most
destructive agent that wo uro awaro of
in this, country I wmild like to
any that a very largo number of people
in society are dying day by day, poi
Boned by alcohol, but not supposed to
be poisoned by it. I know it is a most
deleterious poison."
DK Benj. Richardson, very celebrated for his profound knowledge uf
analytical chemistry, saya: "Finally,
to sum it all up, I find thai alcoholic
drinks givo no strength, reduce the
touo (the natural and healthy tension
of the muscular fibre) of the blood
vessels, build up no muscle, destroy
its powoi-B, and make it less active for
work; that these drinks in the most
moderate .quantity can bo of no use to
mo orany one else as a substance for
food. We are sometimes told that it
is fauatical, it is unpractical, it is contrary to the interests of individual
men, or classes of men, to speak those
things and oppose alcohol. Be it so.
In .anothor age it will be a wonder
that audi arguments as those we are
obliged to use were every necessary tri
convert an unwilling world. ■ In the
meantime, unheeded by any of those
plausible excuses, it is our duty, whether it bo called fanatical or philoso-
phical, practical or impractical, advantageous to class interests or opposed to
them, to unite, body and mind, heart
and soul, in suppressing this evil at its
root, and endeavoring to make this
earth something nearer heaven, by
pulling down from its high placo the
demon drink, who still reigns ao triumphantly in the land in which we
live."
Dr. Thomas, a Fellow of the Royal
Society and Surgeon Extraordinary to
His Majesty tho King of the Belgians,
uit$, surgeon lu University College Hospital, says: "I havo long had the conviction that there is no greater cause
of evil, moral and physical, in this
country than tho use of alcoholic
boyeragos. I do not mean by this that
extreme indulgence which produces
drunkenness, The hitbltual uso of
fermented liquors to an extent far
Bliort of what, is necessary to produce
that condition, aud such as iB quito
common in all ranks of society, injures the body and diminishes the
mental power to au extent which I
think few people are awaro of. Such,
at all events,.is tho result of observation during more than 20 years of
professional life devoted to hospital
practice, and to private practice in
every rank above it. Thus, I have no
hesitation in attributing a very large
proportion of some of the most painful and dangerous maladies which have
come under my notice, as well as those
wliich every medical man haa to treat,
to the ordinary and daily use of fermented drink taken id the quantity
wliich is constitutionally deemed numerate. *-.*.* Bot 'if I ventured
one step farther it would be to express
a belief tbat there is no single habit
in ihis eyunrry wliich eo much tends
to deteriorate the qualities of the race.
and ao much disqualifies it for endurance in that competition which in the
nature of things most exist, and in
which itruegle the prize of superiority must fall to tbe best and the
strongest."
Young Charles Urine, the condemned
murderer, awaiting in the jail at
Stroudsburg the day of execution,
shall close this part of the subject.
Standing on the very verge of the unseen, he takes a comprehensive survey of the past, tho present aud tho
future; he tearfully looks into that
awful eternity into which he is so
shortly to enter, and to that dread
tribunal before which he is bo suon
to stand, and he appeals to young
men and pleads with them in the most
touching language, and BayB: "Lot
your fancy carry you to this lonely
cell. You will see mo with my hands
ironed; irons are on my limbs, and I
am chained to the floor. Do you ask
what brought me here? I must say
whtskoy. I write this in tho hope
that it may bo the means of arresting
the attention and saving some young
man from the path that leads to death
and hell, blights and ruins iu this
world, and fixes destiny in the next
amid tha darkness of eternal night;
for thu sacred volumo declares, 'No
drunkard shall enter the kingdom of
God.1 Oh! that I could only portray
the horrors springing from the first
step! You would shun it as you
would the road in which death in his
most hideous form wns lurking.
Would to God I liad died before I
knew tho love or passion strong drink
oan bring to its poor, deludod victims.
Would to God that one year ago I
could have seen strong drink ns it
really is, stripped of all tho ornaments
thrown ovor it by thoso engaged in thu
traffic—could have seen it as a swift
and aure road that was to lead to my
unhappy condition in a felon's cell,
with the prospect of a shameful death.
Don't believe in moderate drinking;
there ii too much danger in it. There
is no drunkard living but thought he
could leave off when ho wished. Taste
not, touch not, handle not, is the only
safe course. Say you that many drink
und do not what I have done ? All
true: but none do as I did hut what
drink—not one. You say a man can
take a drink and not be a drunkard.
Don't try it; that is what ruined me.
All say at first: 'Whisky shall not be
my master; I am too much of a man
for that.' How soon they find out
that he who said, 'Wine is a mocker,
strong drink is raging, and he that is
deceived thereby is not wise,' knew
more about it than they! Let a man
write all his lifetime and he cannot
utter- mater truths. Give on e»r to
thii advice; it is the advice of a dying
man—dying in his early manhood,
through the accursed cup that -biteth
like a serpent.1" Such the thrilling
and solemn utterances of Ornie before
hii execution. What a momentous
losson to moderate drinkers; to profaning christians who practice it; and,
above all, to ministers of the gospol
who aip tho wine cup and encourage
others to copy their example!  Suoh a
sight as the last, methinks, is enough
to excite hilarious, sneering laughter
iu even Satan himself, while angels
weep, if weep they can.
My next will be the testimony of reformed working men with reBpect to
intoxicating drinks.        Wm. Kknt.
New View or Siberia.
New light has been thrown on Siberia, whereby almost everything assumes a radically different appearance.
Doctor Brahtn, a German, has boen
Btudying that country ethnologically
and ethically, and now presents conclusions ' which will overturn nil that
has been accepted by the civilizad
world outside of ItuBsia.
Siberia ia not, he avers, the region
of frost and sterility wliich it has always been chimed to be, It hns equable seasons—four months of winter,
four of summer, and four of the
others. Grapes cannot bo ripened,
but nearly all the grains nnd fruits of
tho temperate zones are raised in
abundance. Thero is a farming population which, in intelligence, public
Bpirit, industry, thrift, and in other
admirable qualities, ia superior to that
Of Russia proper, and in many respects
superior to that of any of the agricultural elements of Europe. The people, never having been sorfs, aro very
much more elevhted iii tono than tlio
common people of Russia] they nre
patriotic to a fair ..extent, su far as
their Russian allegiance is concerned,
but are much morn so aa Siberians.
They deny being Russians; they nro
Siberians, nnd among their dreams is
one to the effect that time may bring
them independence. Extended visiting among the houses of the people
found everywhere
NOT ONLY COMPORT' HUT KVKN blTXUKIES
Imported stuffs wero abundant, and in
ii majority of the cases tho residents
owned tho land which they occupy.
Marriage is encouraged, and the birth
and rearing of children are regarded
aa praiseworthy efforts in proportion
to their number. Thero ia no necessity fur foundling hospitals, for in case
a child is left without parents any of
the farmers are glad to adont it and
rear it as tlieir own. Probably the
inoBt wonderful discoveries mado by
Brehm havo reference to tho Siberian
prisoners, their treatment, mode of
life.'and tho like. He finds scarcely a
single one of the horrors usually accredited to the deportation of prison-
era and their confinement. On the
contrary, if what he assorts is true,
then tho Siberian system of
IMrniSONMBNT IS AN IMPROVEMENT
on many other systems in ubo among
other nationa. The long march un
foot no longer exists, as a portion of
it is nuw facilitated by the uso of
steamers. Over the portions whero it
is necessary to proceed on foot the
daily stagea are only seven milos, and
every third day ia a vest, during which
the prisoners havo the opportunity to
beg, or earn something by performing
little jobs for the people. The worst
cases of hardship are to be found iu
the prisoners deported for tho higher
class of offences, and who have n sentence of death commuted. They are
forced to work in thc mines, and to
wear chains', day and night, for a certain number of years. In time a
lighter sot supplies thc place of tho
heavy ones, and. in duo season theso
are removed. The officials, according
to Brehm, are
ALt. WARMLY INTERESTED
in the prisoners; they advise them,
assist a* encourage them, and labor
to reconcile them to their fate. As a
rule, the families of the deported no-
ccunpany them into exile, and thus are
near the. prisoner when he is at work
in the mines, or live with him when
his sentence is not one of hard labor.
It is in this direction that the Siberian
system has a feature superior tu that
of any other system. It permits the
prisoner to care for his family. His
wife and children do not starve while
he ia serving his lime; they are not,
as in Illinois, punished for the sin of
the husband and father. The consequence of this system is that the prisoner settles down usually for life.
He can enter on any profession for
which ho ia suited; government lund
can be had on leaso for a few cents an
acre; ho suffers nu loss of social consideration on account of being a convict, but iB estimated solely with reference to hia conduct. The strangest
portion uf Brehm'a discoveries relates
to
THE ESCAPE OP IMUHOyEllS.
It has been suppused that such a
thing as escape from tho Siberian
mines is an impossibility;. According
to Brehm, it is t|uite the revorse. Thero
aru certain routes which aro nlw&ys
taken by men csanying escape from the
mines, and tlie "unfortunates,*' as they
tire called by thu country people, are
always welcome, When the country
people close their houses for thu night,
they alwaya leave foud in au accessible
place for the benefit of the fugitives.
There aro patrols un thu road, but they
perform their duty in a perfunctory
sort of way, and tliere Jb no difficulty
in avoiding them. The wolves and
the enormous distance to bo traversed
are tho main obstacles to tho cacape of
prisoners. The authorities are indifferent when a man is reported iimaing,
and it is of tho rarest occurrence thut
anything iu the nature uf active pursuit ia instituted.
In fino, the investigations of Brehm
reverse all accepted conclusions in regard to Siberia, and reveal to ub a
country capable of supporting a large
population, which is growing rapidly,
whoso prison system is merciful and
calculated tn benefit the country and
the prisoner-), and whose future is of
tho greatest promise, -Chicago Time*.
Mac Blood Romance.
During tho troubles in the reign of
Charles I. a country girl came to London in search of a place ub a servant
maid, hut not succeeding, sho hired
herself to carry out beer from a ware-
bouse, and was one of those called tub
women. Tho brewer, observing a
good-looking girl in this low occupation, took her into his family as a
servant, and nfter a abort time, married her, He died while she wus yet a
young woman, nnd left her the bulk of
his fortune. Tlie business of browing
was dropped, and Hyde wub recommended to the young womnn us a skilful lawyer to arrange her husband's
affairs. Hyde, who was afterward
Karl of Clarendon, finding the widow's
fortune considerable, married lior. By
this marriage there was no other issue
than a daughter, who afterward became
the wife of James II., and mother of
Mary and Anne, Queens of England,—
