NUMBER 12
The • Provincial Penitentiary.
For some time the Dominion government has been considering the
question of enlarging the penitentiary at this city. The present building, everybody knows, is entirely
too small for the proper accommodation of .tlio convicts. There are
(18 cells and 89 prisoners. The
penitentiary regulations do not .allow more than one peison to be put
in each cell, but tinder the eircum-
s'anceB the warden must either violate the rules or refuse to receive
tliese who have been sentenced to
the pc niton tin ry. At the present
time there are as many as five in
somti of the celts, and there is one
room whore six convicts sleep together upon mattresses spread on
tho floor! If the prison regulations
ure good, the violation of them
must be bad. The hospital accommodation is very imperfect, and
there seems to be no provision at
all for female convicts. Not only
are the building-* totally inadequate,
but the grounds attached to tbe institution are far too limited. These
grounds in all comprise about 99
aores. But of this, only from 45 to
50 aeres aro of any use to tbe institution. The balance is occupied
chiefly by the large ravine known
us the Glen, and is unfit for cultivation or any other useful purpose.
The penitentiary should have nbout
500 acres of ground attached, and
it is believed that with a farm of
such dimensions it could be made
nearly self-supporting, nud the fed*
eral government would thus be re*
lieved of a considerable minimi outlay. It must be remembered that
the number of convicts is constantly
increasing, and is likely now to increaso more rapidly than ever on
account of the increase of population. The number of persons iu the
penitentiary on the SOth June, 1879,*
was 30, in 1S80 it was 33, in 1881
it had increased to 43, in 1882 it
was 52, and last year it was 74. It
will be seen that the increase has
been constant, and of late years it
has beon alarmingly rapid. On the
30th Juno last there were 93, an
increase of 19 over last year. The
necessity for enlarged accommodation, therefore-, is very pressing, and
becomes more so every mouth. It is
proposed to add a wing to tho east
end of the present building so as to
meet the wants of the institution,
But under tbe circumstances above
mentioned it seems to us the time
has arrived for tbo federal government to consider whether it would
be wise to incur any further expense
upon premises whieh are so unsuitable for penitentiary purposes. The
lands, we bave said, are entirely too
limited in extent, and they cannot
be materially increased except at
enormous cost. Tho Glen lies on
the west, aud on the east tbe lands
are held by private parties, and aro
. very valuable. A small field partly
in front of the present enclosure is
hold at $10,000, and to secure land
enough in that direction to satisfy
tbe requirements of the institution
would necessitate the expenditure of
hundreds of thousands of dollars.
Besides, there is every probability
that the oity will soon begin to extend in that direction, towards the
railway, and it may not bo many
years before tbe penitentiary will be
almost surrounded hy buildings.
Such an institution should always
be isolated and apart from other
buildings. It should never have
been located on tho present site nt
all. Thero is a reserve at Point
Gray, at thu entrance to English
Bay, comprising about 500 acres.
It wus reserved originally, we believe, for military purposes, aud was
probably intended as the sito of fortifications to defend Burntrd Inlet.
(There would, we apprehend, lie no H?'
difficulty in securing this site for a
new penitentiary, and for that purpose it is admirably situated. The
bay and gulf wonld cut off all chance
of escape on three sides, und a wall
run across the promontory would
protect tlie fourth. Here there
would be ample room for quite nu
extensive farm, and the convicts
could be employed for many yoars
in constructing fortifications upon
the point. Burmrd Inlet will, in a
few years, become one of tho most
important Bhippingaud trading points
in Canada, and thu erection of a fort
at Its entrance will be only a reasonable precaution. The materials for
such a structure could be obtained
near at hand, and tho work would
be dono at very small expense. The
present penitentiary grounds might
be sold for a sum of money almost
largo enough to pay for the erection
nf a new and fur moro suitable building at Point Gray. Or thoy might
bn taken, buildings and all, by the
provincial government to bo used as
a central prison. For this purpose
thoy are well adapted, and the con
struction of the proposed prison in
this eity would then be quite unnecessary. Wo hope the hon. secretary of state, who ia now in the
province, will give this matter his
earnest consideration before any further expenditure is made on the
present penitentiary site.

THE MOST KORRIBUTALE EVER TOLD.
Washington, <p, O.), Aug. 12.—A
horrible story published ia the New
York Times, that the starving survivors
of the Greely party, crazed by starvation, fed on tbe dead bodies of their
comrades, and that written documents
in possession of the Navy Department
substantiate the terrible narrative,
created a great sensation here. Admiral Nichols, Acting Secretary of the
Navy, was shortly beseiged by newspaper men, anxious to ascertain something official concerning the publication. The Admiral says there is absolutely nothing in the Navy Department
confirming tho story, and he doubted
its truth. It is possible, however, that
a roport of this nature may have gone
direct to Secretary Chandler, in New
Hampshire, as numerous documents
are forwarded to him without examination. Some persons express the opinion
quietly that there is something in
the story, aud say that it is beginning
to be known that the Greely party was
uot as harmonious as has houn generally supposed, and that there is a story
relating to the expedition which it was
intended to conceal, but which must
come out in the same way that the
Jeannctte'i unfortunate cruise booame
known to the publio. |
The Times* story was shown General
Hunan, who was at first vory non-com-
municativo, but finally said, with decided emphasis: "There are certain
facts connected with the matter that I
am not at liberty to mention. It is
very probable, though I do not say so
officially, that they will be made the
subject of a congressional investigation
next winter. The story contains some
inaccuracies, notably that in reference
to devouring tho amputated limbs of
those who suffered the loss of legs and
arms in order to preserve their fives."
General Hazen was asked what truth
there was in the statement that young
Henry had been shot und his body
eaten.
"That  is  a subject," he  replied,
"upon which I must decline to be interviewed." ,
"Is tho report that Captain Schley
called you and Secretary Chandler into
the vessel's cabin and informed you
that the survivors had eaten their associates, false ?" was asked.
"That story is untrue.1'
"There is, then, no truth in the remainder of the published stories V
"I will not say that they are uot
true. I have but casually glanced at
the published story other than-at those
portions which I deny."
"Did you hear auy rumors while at
Portsmouth that the dead men had
been eaten T'
"There were rumors of that kind
afloat. My official position would not
permit me to give the facta in the
caao."
'There are facts then ?"
'1 cannot answer that. I had a long
interview with Lieut. Greely, but the
subject of eating bodies waa not referred to. I can imagine a case when
cannibalism would be justifiable, and
it would be the case where men were
starving."
"Du you excuse cannibalism in the
Greely case V
"Under tiie circumstances it would
be excusable."
"Has Secretary Chandler received
nny report relative to this aubject V
"Not that I know of. I have recoived none."
"Is the report that Private Henry
was shot and afterwards eaten false ?"
"There were rumors at Portsmouth
that he had beon killed and that the
survivors had eaten hia body, but I
decline to give any facts in his caso
that I might know."
"Will the shooting be aubject to in*
vestigation by the War Department ?"
"Not necessarily. Men are shot
every day in muntinioa and no investigation is made. Under some circumstances it might be proper."
''Will there be an investigation of
tho reportod eating of tlio bodies I"
"The investigation could not be by
either the War or Navy Department.
That is n matter which Congress will
have to look into. Thon all tho facts
will be presented, and until then nothing will bo given out."
Genoral Hazon soya that Mr,
Greely's roport of tho entire expedition
will probably bu forwarded to him
within a month. While it was generally conceded that there are no records
iu Washington that substantiated tho
story, both army and navy officers,
among thomsolves, did not think it an
impossibility by any nii-aus.
Said a naval officer iu the corridor
of the Navy Department: "Even if
there was uo reason for believing the
story, tho fact that thore are no records
to substantial it doos not disprove it
at all.   It looks as if it is true.

Let ibe People Beware!
It is a matter of regret that the
appointment of a commission by
the Dominion government to take
evidence and otherwise collect information lospecting the Chinese
grievance in this province should
have given rise to serious misapprehension and ill-will; and we are
both surprised and disappointed
that publio men and public journals
should be found encouraging rather
than removing popular prejudices
with respect to this matter. It ia a
question whioh surely should be
approached with calmness and judgment, lest the federal government
may receive the impression that if
the Chinese are an undesirable class,
we are an unreasonable people, If
we wish the world to regard ua as
aensible men, let us not act the part
of petulant children. For years
British Oolumbia has been declaring
through her local parliament, on the
floor of the commons and senate,
and through the public press, that
the unrestricted admission of Ohinese is a great evil, and she has
suggested various schemes by which
that evil might bo modified. The
provincial legislature, hampered by
constitutional disabilities and
strain's, has repeatedly attempted
to apply such remedies as seemed to
lie within its reach, but all legi
tion in that direction has been met
with the federal veto. Our representatives at Ottawa have from time
to timo spoken out on this question,
and before a parliamentary committee which met at Ottawa aome
years ago both they und others gave
evidence as to the charaoter and extent of the evil complained of. But
theso witnesses were not all agreed,
Some of them, both on the floor of
the house and before the committee,
spoke in favor of the Ohinese and
hinted that thia province could not
afford to dispense with tlieir services. They even went so far as
to commend the morality of these
people! During the last two years
both the .local legislature and our
representatives in the federal parliament have manifested increased
earnestness and determination in
protesting against this ovil and demanding a remedy. The legislation
placed on the provincial statute
books last winter leaves no room to
doubt that tbe province is thoroughly in earnest upon this subject. Mr.
Shakespeare's resolution served to
bring the question directly before
the federal parliament, and afforded
the first minister the opportunity of
promising that the whole subject
would be thoroughly investigated
by commission during the recess.
And this brings us to consider the
appointment and character of the
commission. There are those who
have been endeavoring to persuade
the people that, in the very act of
appointing this commission they oan
discern insult to the province—a
sort of tacit declaration on the part
of the Dominion government that
it discredits the statements and
representations made so repeatedly
and emphatically by the constitutional representatives of tbe peoplo
both at Ottawa and James Bay. It
hu been further aaserted that, if a
commission were necessary at all, it
should have been composed of representative men belonging to the
province and not strangers who bave
nothing in common with us. We
confess ourselves unable to perceive
anything savoring of insult in the
act of appointing this commission.
It is not by any means a new thing,
Under similar circumstunces commissions have frequently been appointed both in Great" Britain and
other civilized countries, and we do
not remember a single instance in
which auch an appointment was regarded as an insult On the contrary, it has usually produced the
very opposite effect. California did
not fly into indignant protest when
the United States government, after
years of agitation, appointed a commission to enquire into the samo
grievance under which this proviuce
now lies. She accepted it gratefully, and availed herself of tho
opportunity with all eagerness. Nor
did British Columbia feel herself
insulted when, a few years ago, a
parliamentary committeo was ap
pointed and aat at Ottawa, The
appointment of this commission is
in no mum a reflection upon the
province, its legislature, or its representatives. It ia the reverse, bo-
cause it implies a belief that thore
exists a grievance of sufficient magnitude to justify enquiry. It must
be remembered tliat, in view of
legislative action, the Ohinese question develops into something more
than » provinoial lame.   It ia true
the grievance just now affects only
this province; but any legislation
by way of restriction must be for
tbo Dominion. Under these circumstances it appears to ub quite right
that the Dominion parliament, bofore legislating on tlie aubject, should
require to havo before it all available evidence whicli might enable it
to arrive at a just and wise conclusion; nnd it was most natural and
proper tbat it should seek that evidence through an impartial federal
tribunal. As to the personnel of
the commission, it seems to us to
have been most unjustly attacked.
If it was to be a federal commission
at all, what could be more appropriate than that it should be composed of a federal minister and a
auprcmo court judge! Instead of*
sending us an underling or a political parasite, a member of the cabinet lias come in his own person, and
one of our own supremo court
judges has beon selected as his colleague. May we uot accept the
personnel of such a commission as a
compliment instead of nn insult! It
is stated thnt Judgo Gray is known
to be in favor of the Ohinese. If
tbis be truo it is unfortunate; but
surely a person of Judge Gray's
judicial training and habits would
not permit his personal feelings to
influence his official inquiry! It
has also been objected tlint a person
has been brought nll tbe wny from
tho east to aot as secretary to the
commission. Undoubtedly an efficient secretary might have been
found in this province; but the objection-is in itself frivolous, and in-
asmuch ns the commission began its
enquiries before reaching this province, and will require the services
of a secretary to compile and arrange the evidence after returning
to Ottawa, this objection can scarcely
bo seriously urged. But let us suppose that this commission had been
composed of out* own men (provincial politicians probably, who might
hnve locnl interests or prejudices to
serve), would its work havo been
acceptable to the federal parliament?
These hove been heard already—
they have both B.'okcn and voted.
What parliament nsked for was an
investigation and report by un independent federal tribunal against
which no suspicion of prejudice or
partiality could lie, nnd it mny fairly
be assumed that tho gentlemen who
constitute the commission aro competent for such a work. Tlie commissioners might have met at Ottawa and received evidence there.
But they bave come among us, to
make an investigation whero tho
evil is reported to exist, and it
would bo the most absolute folly
on our part if we fail to take advantage, to tbe fullest extent, of the
opportunity thus brought within
our reach of convincing the Dominion parliament of the pressing need
for restrictive legislation. The
course adopted may quite possibly
have ruffled the feathers of some
self-important local politicians, but
it may nevertheless commend itself
to the impartial judgment of the
peoplo of Canada. We should be
extremely sorry to think tbat tbe
poople of British Columbia, or any
considerable portion of them, could
fairly be held responsible for tbe
unseemly babble and ill temper with
which the commission has been
greeted; and we are glad to be able
to assure the commissioners and the
Dominion government that such is
not the case. The sober sense of
the province ia on the other side.
The self-importance of a few individuals has been hurt, and that is
all. We have only to add in conclusion that we are glad the provincial government was proof against
all attempts to lead it into a false
position in this matter.

Thk Nbw Gaol.—The delay-whlch
occurred in tho erection of this important aud urgently-needed work has
been seized upon as a ground for
doubting the bonafuUs of the government. Thia delay has to some extont
arisen from the fact that the architect
whoso plans were accepted resides in
New York, where tho necessary working drawings, etc,? aro being prepared.
We are in a position to state that, as
soon as tho plans and specifications are
ready, which may bo in two or three
weoks, tenders for the work will be
invited and tho contract, presumably,
will be lot. Tho season is now too far
advanced to admit of the erection of
the buildings this year, but if the contract be assigned this fall the grading,
drainage, water pipes, foundation, etc.,
could bo proceeded with, aud everything made ready for an early start
next Bpring. lu this way we may reasonably luok for its completion bofore

delay is vory unfortunate, but the new
goal is a work of considerable importance and cannot fairly be rushed
through at a season when tho weather
in almost certain tu be unfavorable.

The Commission*.—The Chinese commission arrived from up-river yeBterday morning, and in the afternoon
proceeded to t<oie evidence in this
oity. Hon. Mr. Chapleau and Judge
Gray addressed thouo present at some
length en the scope of tho enquiry.
Senator Mclnnes waB the first called
upon, but asked to be excused from
making any statement. Ho said he
had stated his views fully before Iho
commission at Ottawa, aud had not
since changed his opinion. Mr. J. A,
II. Homer, M. P., was asked a number
of questions tu which he replied. The
purport of his statement waB that
there are in this district, including the
coast, about 5000 Chiuose, of whom
about 2000 belong to the citv; they
aro engaged in almost every kind-of
employment, and are gradually monopolizing many of the industries of the
province. They worked for loss wages
than a whito man could support himself nnd family on; was nut aware that
they had reclaimed any extent of
land; believed they had prevented a
better class of people coining to the
country; their presence wns a menace
to tho health of their immediate
neighbors; did not think any industries would suffer seriously if Chinese immigration should cease;
did nut think wages would go
up to any extent, as it would
not require much of an advance to
brine plenty laborers from east uf the
mountains; it was almost impossible
to collect taxes from them, as they hid
away and assumed names that did not
belong to them; altogether they were
a vory undesirable clues of people, and
wo had for too many of them now.
Tho statements of other witnesses
must bo reserved till next issue. We
understand tho commission will proceed to Nanaimo to-day. Tin's soenid
very ridiculous, ioi in so brief a time
it could not possibly do justice to the
subject nf enquiry nt this city,
A Douhlr Benefit.—Jamea Moore, a

Bridge River is cheering, The following trustworthy information comes in
to Lillooet: McGregor and Vader arrived from Bridge River last night and
give a most favorable report of the
prospects thore. It appears they abandoned the hod of the stream and are
now working into the banks with the
most encouraging prospects.   I. Ste-

being the estimated yield.

The Wretch.—A crusty old bachelor who attendod St. Andrew's church
last Sunday says: "In a church babies
are neither ornamental nor useful, notwithstanding tho opinion of admiring
mothers to tho contrary; preaching,
combined with thoir prattle or squalling
fs not conducive to heavenly-minded-
ness; if it Ib absolutely necessary that
they attend, publio worship, southing
syrup and cradles should be provided
tot them."
Aii Unfortunate Statement*
Not long ago, in writiug on the question uf government advertising, we incidentally mentioned that tho circulation uf the daily Colonist in this city
was fivo times more than that of the
Standard. The paragraph was copied
by the Colnnist, and forthwith the
Standard makes the following foolish
reply:
The Colonist, to bolster up its circulation, copies with avidity any bogus item
printed by the Columbian, or such like
government hirelings, in the journalistic
world, to aid its fast exaggerated allegations as to popularity. Yesterday tlie
Colonist reprinted an item from the Columbian to help itself out of the mire of
unpopularity wherein its feet aro stuck.
One naturally wonders how muoh it costs
the Colonist to make governmental satel*
ites print flattery ana lies as to circulation.
Now, we havo enquired at tho two
bookstores iu this city, and Und that
the number of papera receivod is as
follows: Daily Standards, 0; daily Colonists, 67! It will be seen, therefore,
that our former statement was far too
favorable to thu Standard, as the circulation of thu Colonist in this eity is
eleven times greater instead of five
times. We should uot have taken the
truublo to publish this statement if the
Standard had not forced us tu it in
self-defence. Probably it will-now be
satisfied tu lot well enough atone

Juneau, Alaska, via Nanaimo, Aug.
15.— The miners are doing very well
this season. At Juneau every man
whu wants wurk oan get it, as laborers
are very scarce in the camp. The large
excursion of school teachers arrived
hero yesterday and nre having a splendid time and very fine and pleasant
weather. Oapt. J. B. Coughlin, of the
U.S.S. Adams, has been doing some
very good work this summer. He has
been surveying Peril Straits and Wran-
gel Narrows, and haa found several
new and dangerous rocks snd has put
buoys and beacons .on them. Oapt.
Coughlin has done more good work for
the people of Alaska this last year than
-all the rest of the American officers
have dune fur sixteen years. Everybody is sorry that the Adams and hor
energetic commander are about to leave
our waters. Times are very lively in
the missionary business, Sheldon
Jackson has arrived with 920,000 to
spend in building school houses and
churches for tho poor Indians. The
salmon catch has been very light in
Alaska this' year amounting to only
15,000 barrels,

(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
Last Saturday morning a large party
left this place for a pic-nic up thu inlet
to Port Moody, on Thain & McPhai-
den's steam pleasure yacht Rittler.
The stoamer waB gayly decorated with
flags and other holiday emblems, and
among the company were several captains from ships at hoth the mills, who
were delighted with tho scenery between Moodyvillo and Port Moody.
The day was lovely, and tho rugged
mountains, which lend such a romantic
charm to the inlet, looked their best.
On arriving at Port Moody all wero
quite prepared for lunch, which was
spread nnder an awning un the deck
of the steamer. Afterwards Mr. E. J.
Thain took the ladies fur a trip up the
track on a velocipede, while the gentlemen were left in their hammocks to
ijoy an afternoon smoko. On the
return trip the party wero taken round
Fanny Island so as to get a good viow
of the North Arm. Some of tho poo*
pie of Port Moody were under the im*
pression, when they saw the gigantic
proportions of the Rattler, that it must
contain an exploring pnrty in search of
the real terminus; but even the gentle
whispers of the zephyrs conveyed no
sign that'would dispel the uncertainty
which still, clings to some minds in respeot to that burning question.
The Penitentiary.
HOW THE MIHIKALS ABE DISPOSED OF.
A representative of The Columbian
visited the British Columbia penitentiary lost Saturday afternoon, and
was most courteously received by the
warden and deputy warden of that
institution. As most of our readers
know, the penitentiary is situated on
a part of what ia known as Sapperton,
immediately west of the city limits.
It stands on the bank of the river,
surrounded by well-kept grounds, and
communda one uf the finest views
anywhere to bo had. The building is
of cut stone, and thu floors are of
Vancouver Island oak. It contains
08 cells, but as there are 89 convicts
it is fuund necessary to put more than
one prisoner in a cell, which is contrary to regulations. In some instances there arc as many as five in
one cell, and in one case six! The
constantly increasing numbers make it
certain that an enlargement will bo
necessary at once, or else both the
safety and health of the convicts will
be in danger. The cells are kept very
clean, and, indeed, so is the whole institution. Besides containing various
apartments required for officers, kitchen, laundry, &c, the building contains
a Protestant aud a Roman Catholic
chapel, where tho convicts are required
to attend divine service every Sabbath. Of the convicts now in tlio institution
OVER ONE-THIRD ARE CHINAMEN.
There are 2 half-breeds, 5 negroes, 22
Indians, 20 white men, and 31 Chi*
nose. This is a fact which should be
brought to the notice of the Ohinese
commission. Although thero are twice
BB many white men as Ohinese in the
province, the criminal records will
show that the celestial convicts are
everywhere much more numerous than
the white. As a general rule the convicts in the penitentiary are made to
conform to the regulations of the institution without the incentive of
severe punishment. The most notable
exception to this rule is Barry, whose
name has more than once been made
publio in connection with refractory
conduct. Barry has been frequently
consigned to the blaok hole for bad
conduct, in fact he is seldom at liberty.
Not long ago he was treated to a number of lashes for making a iriurderous
attaok upon one of the guards. This
had a salutary effect, but he very soon
relapsed into his old ways, and is
again in solitary confinement. The
officers, some of whom have been for
over 20 years connected with similar
institutions, say Barry is the worst
sample they ever met. He seems to
be possessed of a devil, and openly
declares that he .will not be content
until he has killed somebody. Surrounding tho penitentiary there are
NINETY-NINE AORES
of ground. Of this about 36 acres
are cleared and enclosed by a high
wall, and the men are now extending
the wall so as to take in 6 aores more,
whioh will also be cleared off and put
under crop. When this has been
doue the limits cannot be extended
much further for any useful purpose.
Running along the west side is a deep
ravine which could not bo of any use
to the penitentiary. On the north
side a branch of this ravine cuts across
near the limit of the 0 acres now Ileitis reclaimed, and extension in either
of these directions would serve no useful purpose. The wholo area of the
land fit for cultivation, therefore, exclusive uf buildings, will not he much
more than 30 aores. Last year the
retirttw obtained from the soil amounted to $2,823.18. This year it will go
above $3,000. With a farm of about 500
acres it is believed enough produce and
stock could be raised to make tlie institution almost self-sustaining. Upon
the present site thia would be impossible. Not only is the area entirely
too Btnall, but generally the soil is
poor and unfit for a goud crop. The
crops raised, howover, are magnificent,
but this result has been reaohed only
through the expenditure of a vast
amount of labor. The whole of the
cultivated grounds have been thoroughly underdrained. The drains are
made of stone whioh has been taken
off the land, and will aggregate a total
length of over 8,000 foot. The land
every year has been heavily manured.
Last year 250 loads of manure wero
used, and this yonr the quantity hns
been larger. Mr. Fitzsimmons, tho
deputy waiden, takes great pride in
the management of the estate. He
has procured a number of verities of
seed, and shows somo of tho
FINEST  SAMPLES
of wheat, oats, peas, potatoes, and
other vegetables wo have ever seen
anywhere. From ground which most
farmers would reject as worthless there
have been cut this year four tons of
hay to the acre. The potato crop will
reach about 50 tons, and the carrots,
beets, onions, and other  vegetables
Sresent a most luxuriant appearance.
lore vegetables are produced on the
grounds than aro required for thu use
of the establishment. There is nlso a
barnyard attached where chickens and
ducks are kopt, and pork enough ia
raised for the requiremunlH uf tho larder. -Last year a magnificent Bpoci-
meu of a Berkshire sow was brought
from England for the penitentiary,
and sho ih thu most perfect animal of
tho kind we have Been in this country.
When fattened shu will probably weigh
over 1000 lbs. There is a stable attached where a span of horses is kopt
for thu use of the establishment, a
baru for storing hay and grain, and u
large ruot-huuse. The workshop has
four apartments used respectively as
blacksmith shop, earpunter shop, tailoi-
shup, and a bout ami shoe shop.
Here the clothing uud impletnutits for
the establishment aru mado. It in intended tu increase considerably tho
efficiency' of the latter two, and to
manufacture bouts uud shoes both fur
the penitentiary and thu other govornmont establishments in the proviuce.
It is proposed to add awing to the
main building so as to secure sufficient
accommodation for thu inmates; but
tho grounds aru altogether so unsuitable that it would undoubtedly bo
found more economic to abandon thom
and erect new buildings in a larger
and more isolated locality. Thupeiuten*

HEWS FROM ML PARTS OF TNI WOULD.
Nashville, Aug 12.—An organization
established by Mormon Elders in Louis
and Hickman counties in this state,
about two years ago, was broken up Sunday by tho killing of all the Elders by a
band of masked men. Mr. Depriest, the
United States mail carrier between Ivey
Mills and Centreville, Hickman county,
gives the following account of the massacre: Three Elders were leading a meet*
ing at Condor's farm on Cane Creek,
Louis county, Sunday evening when
twelve masked men on horseback rode
up to the house and ordered a young man
named Hutson and young Condor to surrender. They showed fight and one of
the masked men knocked Condor down,
breaking his skull. Hutson fired and
one of the masked men fell dead. He
was found to be Dave Henson, a citizen
of Hickman county. He lived at Brush
Fork on the Beaverdam. The masked
men then shot and killed two of the
Mormon Elders. Tho third ran toward
the woods from which firing was soon
heard. The Elder has- not been seen
since and it is supposed that ho was also
killed. It lias oho been ascertained that
tbo masked mci before going to Condor's
house, stopped at tlie house of a man
named Garret, near Condor's, and found
a Mormon Elder there. They left two
masked men in chargo of this Elder.
Shooting was heard shortly afterward
and that Elder has not been seen since,
Whon the firing commenced at Condor's
house one Elder hid behind Mrs, Condor
and in shooting at him Mrs. Condor was
wounded,
Iowa Citv, Aug. 13,—The city is in
the midst of great excitement to-night.
The streets are crowded with people and
a fear of violence pervades all good citizens. This afternoon at tbe trial of two
brewers of this city before a justice of
the peace, a mob of 200 thugs attacked
the prosecuting lawyer, named W. H.
Bailey,1! stripped his clothing off and
tarred him. His lifo was narrowly saved
bv the deputy sheriff. Tho mob, many
of them crazed by drink, tried to catch
the prinoipal witness, named Swafford,
and would have hanged him had they
found him, A constable was severely
cut with knives. The roughs came to
town this evening, and for an hour had
possession of the streets, the sheriffs
force and the oity police being powerless.
After supper tbey found Swafford and
knocked him ana his brother down on
the street. The mob would have killed
tlie SwalTords had not the latter been
secreted lu a store, A meeting of citizens
has been held and the outrages have been
vigorously condemned and special police
appointed for the night. The best people
ot all parties are urging the observance
of 'the law. The ringleaders in the disturbance are known And warrants have
been issued for their arrest.
London, Aug. 14.—A British gunboat

London, Aug. 14.—Parliament was
prorogued to-£ay with the usual cere-
monies. The Queen, in her speech, said:
"I sincerely regret that an important
part of your labors failed of result in a
legislative enactment. Friendly intercourse subsists with all foreign powers.
Diplomatic relations have boen resumed
with Mexico, and the preliminary agreement for a treaty of commerce has been
signed, 1 have to lament the failure or
tho conference to devise meana to restore
the finances of Egypt, which are so im*
portent to the well-being and good order
of the country. I shall continue to fulfil
faithfully the duties growing out of the
presence of my troops in .the valley of
thfc Nile. 1 trust that the speoial mission which I have determined to send
there will materially aid me in considering what steps to adopt. I view with
unabated satisfaction the diminution of
agrarian crime in Ireland and the substantial improvement of the people, j I
design at an early period to call your attention to the great subject of representation of the people. I rejoice to observe,
amid numerous indications of interest in
the subject, constant proofs of loyalty to
the throne nnd respect for the law.
These indications inspire me with full
belief that tho great national aim will be
pursued with order and moderation and
the best securities for such a settlement
may conduce to the happiness and the
liberties of the peoplo and the strength
of the empire." The speech closed with
thankfulness for the favorable season
which is "alleviating the pressure that
has so long and seriously affected the
agricultural industry."
New York, Aug. 14.—Third Ollicer

Tbe Chinese Commission.
The following report of the provincial secretary's evidence before the
Chinese commission at Victoria is
taken from the Colonist:
Since 1859 he had been a resident of
British Columbia, and a member of
the government since one year ago
January last. In answer as to when
the agitation of the Chinese question
began, ho said that it assumed the
shape of a political question in 1872,
when he had moved in the house that
the Chinese be disfranchised. The
immigration came first from California,
but direct shipments oame from China
on the beginning of railway construction. There had been no means used
to ascertain the number of Ohinese
population in the city or province.
The revenue tax was collected from
7-50, bot he thought that would only
cover one-fourth of tlie total number
in Viotoria. The groat bulk of Chinese
were employed in a way that it was
difficult to ascertain the numbers, and
a largo number were unemployed'and
were probably supported by the others.
He oould not explain why it was that
only a money return of 760 could be
had when he estimated that there were
between 3,000 and 4,000 in the oity.
There had been few to his knowledge
left tp tho charity of the citizens, and
the number was limited that had been
treated in the hospitals. He was unaware of any disease among them except by reputation, although the Chineso quarter was dreaded on account
of its filthy state. The death rate was,
perhaps, no larger among them than
other nationalities. There was no provincial record kept of Chinese interments. He had heard evidence in
reference to the cleanliness of Chinese
in comparison with other classes, to
which he must take exception. He
thought they could not be so cleanly
on account of their filthy habits and
surroundings, and it was uot the general opinion that they were so.
The ohairman said that whilo in San
Francisco he had met with clean
Chinamen, but very filthy surroundings. One who waa undressed in the
most disgusting quarters he' found had
clean underclothing and body. He
was struok with tho anomaly of the
case.
The provincial socretary said he
would like to say something in refer*
enco to the contention that British
Oolumbia could not got along without
Chinese, Ho contended that the reason they had not white labor was on
account of iho presenco of the Chinese.
The groat number who arrived here
woro brought by Chinese companies
njid were bound under certain obligations to pay the major part of their
earnings to their musters or owners,
and it was a system of labor that was
not free. Ho referred to tho thousands of Cinnamon who wero discharged from the railway last fall and
went into camp destitute. Thuy lived
ou "sick" salmon and were a source of
groat anxiety to the white settlors,
who feared trouble frum them, and
com mu ii ion tod with the government.
Tbo Chinese companies, however, gave
them barely enough rice to subsist on,
and no serious trouble fortunately occurred. He understood from railway
officials thnt those companies contracted for so many Chineso laborers
and drew the wages. Had not such
labor oxcluded white labor, it would
bo here, nnd Mr. Onderdonk admitted
Chinese labor was not as satisfactory
as whito. White men aud women will
not come here and compete with Chi*
nose slave labor either in the kitohen,
field or public works. At the time of
tho commencement of railway con*
struction there was not an adequate
supply of white labor here or it would
have boen employed in preference to
tho Chinese who wure on the ground.
Thero wero cortaiu branches where the
employment of Ohinese labor was remunerative, but they would never contribute to the progress and wealth of
the country fn the bost sense. It was
asserted thst whito labor demanded
higher, pay than Chinese. That might
be partly owing to the fact that there
was not a tegular supply of the former,
snd he repeated thst the presence of
Chineso slave labor operated to prevent
whito labor from coming. But he
contended that even if white labor
wero fifty per cent, dearer, it would
still be more profitable to the country.
Before commencing his second contract Mr. Onderdonk offered to contribute 9250,000 towards a scheme for
introducing white labor hore, provided
tho Dominion governmc iit, would take
it up, bo convinced was he of its superiority over Ohinese labor. Had
that been done the evil would to a
groat extent have been overcome.

"1 don't know about auy Vernon's
•—except ourselves," Hester said.
"My dear." wid Miu Vernon, hastily, "you must not get it into your
little head that you are by any means
at the head of the house, or near it.
Your grandfather was only the second
son, and you are only a girl—if you
had been a boy it might have been
different; and even my great-grandfather, John Vernon, who is the head
of our branch, waB nothing more than
a cadet of the principal family. So
don't nivo yourself any airs on that
■core AU your neighbors here are
better Vernons than you—"
*'I never give myself any airs—I
don't know what you mean," said Hester, feeling a wish to cry, but mastering herself with all the strength
of passion.
„ "Don't you, my poor child? I think
you do. You are behaving in a silly
way, you know, meeting me like this,
Your mother ihould have taught you
better manners. I have no desire out
to be kind to you. But never mind,
I will not say anything about it, for
I dare say you are all put the wrong
way with fatigue and excitement,
otherwise t should think vou were excessively uncivil, do you know," Misa
Vernon said.
And Hester stood, fiery-red, and
listened. If she had spoken she must
havo cried—there was no alternative.
The candle flickered between the two
antagonists. They were antagonists
already, as muoh as if they had been
on terms of equality. When Miss
Vernon had rested as long as she
thought necessary, she got up and
bade her young enemy good-night.
"Tell your mother I have done my
duty in the way of calling, and that it
is now she who must come to me,"
■he said.
Hester stood at the door of the
veranda, with her candle flaring into
the night, while Catherine went round
to the other door to call Jennings, her
maid, and then watched the two walking away together with a mixture of
confused feeling which filled her childish soul to overflowing. She wanted
ta cry, ta stamp with her feet, and
clinch, her lists, and grind her teeth.
She waa like a child in the unreasoning force of her passion, which was
bitter shame aa well. She had behaved liko a savage, like a fool, Bhe
knew, liko a little silly, ill-tempered
child. She ought to be whipped for
her rudeness, and—oh, far worsel—
she would be laughed at. Does not
every one remember the overwhelming, intolerable shame aud mortification which envelope a youn? creature
like a sudden .flame when she perceives
that her conduct haa beeu ludicrous aa
well as wrong, and that she has laid
herself open tu derision and laughter?
Oh, if she could but wipe that hour
out of her life! But Heater felt that
never, never could it be wiped out of
her life. She would remember it if
she lived to be a hundred. Miss Vernon would remember it, and tell every*
body what a senseless, rude, ignorant
being she was. Oh, if the earth
would open and swallow her up! She
did not wish to live any longer with
the consciousness of this mistake, The
first time, the first time ahe had been
tried—and she had made herself ridiculous! The tears came pouring from
her eyes like hail*drops, hot and stinging. Oh, how Bhe stamped upon tho
floor! Never more could she hold up
her head in this new place. She had
covered herself with shame the very
first hour. All the self-restrain at she
could exercise waa to keep herself
from flying up-stairs and waking her
mother in order to tell her all that
had happened. She was not what
people call unselfish—the ono quality
whioh is supposed to be appropriate to
feminine natures. She was kind and
warm-hearted and affectionate, but
she was not without thought of herself. Her own little affairs naturally
bulked more largely to her than every
thing else in the world. She could
scarcely endure to keep all thii to
herself till to-morrow. She had, indeed, flown up-stairs with a cry of
"Mother, mother!'- open-mouthed:
and then it had occurred to her that
to. wake her mother would be cruel.
She waa very tired, and she had been
more "upset" than Hester had ever
seen her. Probably ihe would be still
upset in the morning if she were dis*
turned now in her slumber. Heater's
fortitude wu not sufficient to make
her go to, bed quietly. She was almost
noisy in, her undressing, letting her
hairbrush fail, and pushing tho furniture about, hoping every moment that
her mother would wake. But Mrs,
John wai very tired, and she was a
good sleeper. She lay perfectly atill,
notwithstanding this commotion; and
Hester, with her heart swelling, had
to put herself to bed at last, whore she
soon fell asleep too, worn- out with
passion and pain—things which weary
the spirit more than even a day on the
railway or crossing the Channel whon
thero are itorms at sea.
Miu Vernon went home half amused,
but more than half angry. Edward
Vernon'had not very long before taken
up his abode at the Orange, and he
wai very attentive to Aunt Catherine,
as many of the family called her. He
came out to meet her when she appeared, and blamed her tenderly for
not calling him when she went out.
"I do not think you would liavo
been the worse for my arm," he said.
He wm a ilim young man, with a black
beard, though he was still quite young,
and a gentle expression in his eyes.
He was one of those of whom it is
said he never gave his parents an anxious hour; but there wu something
in his face which made ono wonder
whether this wu from genuine good-
neas, or because he had never yet come
under temptation. This doubt had
passed through Catherine Vernon's
mind when she heard all that his en*
thuslutio family had to say of him
but it had worn away in boholding the
sweetness of his disposition, and his
gentle, regular life. To see him so
dutiful and gentle wu a relief and
comfort to her after the encounter she
had juat had.
"it would have given yeu a sensation," she laid, "I promise you, if you
had oome with me, Edward. I have
juat had a meeting with a littlo spit-
tire, a little tiger-cat."
-'Who ii that, Aunt Catherine?"
Miu Vernon threw her shawl off
her cap, and ut down on the sofa to
take breath. She had walked home
futerthan usual in the excitement of
tho moment.
"If you will believe me," ihe said,
"I don t even know her name- except,
of course, that tt is Vernon, John
Vernon'a daughter. I suppose she
must hare been warned against me,
and inatructed to keep me at arm's
length."
'•To keep you at arm's length? That
U not poeaibfe."
,  "Well, it doee not look likely, doei
it?" she- said, somewhat molified.
'People are not generally afraid of
Catherine Vernon: but it is singular
sometimes how you will find your own
family steeled against you, when everybody else likes you well enough. They
tee you too near at hand, where there
is no illusion pouible, I suppose; but
that could not be the case with this
little thing, who never set eyes on me
before. She let me know that her
mother was not to be disturbed, and
even refused me admission—what do
you think?—to my own house."
"Are you quite sure there is no mistake?" said Fdward; "it seems incomprehensible to me."
"Oh, I do not find it incomprehensible. She is Mrs. John's daughter,
and there never wu any love lost between us. I always felt her to be a
vacant, foolish creature; and no one
can tell what a venturesome, ridiculous
hoyden she thought me."
Here Catherine Vernon felt herself
grow hot all over, as Hester had done,
bethinking herself of an encounter
not altogether unlike the present, in
which ihe had onacted Heater's part,
and exposed lioraolf to tho ridicule of
Mrs. John. Though this wu nearly
half a century ago, it had atill power
to move her with that overwhelming
aenao of mortification. There are
things which no one ever forgets.
"When I heard of that woman com*
ing home, I knew mischief would come
of it," Miu Vernon aaid.
"But forgive me, Aunt Catherine,
wu it not you tliat uked her to
come ?"
Catherine Vernon laughed.
"You have me there,' ahe said. "I
see you are quick, and I see you are
honest, Edward. Most people hearing
me say that would have been bewildered and thought it not pouible. . No, I
did not bring her. I only said to her,
If you are coming, there is a house
hore which you are welcome to if you
pleue.   What else could I do ?"
"She is not penniless, I suppou.
You might have let her settle where
she pleased."
"She is not penniless, but she is
heedless and heartless," uid Miss Vor-
non, with a sigh; "and as for settling
where ahe pleased, of course, anyhow,
she would nave come here. And then,
I never expected she would take it."
"You thought she would oome here,
and yet you never expected she would
take it; and you knew Bhe would make
mischief, yet you invited her to come.
That is a jumble. I don't make head
or tail of it."
"Nor I," cried Miw Vernon, with
another laugh. "You Bhall carry the
problem a little further, if you pleue.
I feared that her coming would disturb
us all, and yet I am half pleased in my
heart, being such a bad woman, that
ahe is going to make a disturbance to
prove rae right. You see I don't spare
myself."
"It amuses you to make out your
own motives aa well as other people's;
and to show how they contradict each
other," Edward said, shaking hiB head.
Thia little bit of metaphysics refreshed Miu Vernon. She became
quite herself again, as she told him her
story.
"The little firebrand!" Bhe said, "the
little spitfire! facing me on my owu
ground, defying me, Catherine Vernon, in the very Vernonry, my own
creation!"
"I wonder what the child could
mean by it; it must have beon ignorance."
"Very likely it waa ignorance; but
it wu more; it wu opposition, firm,
healthy, instinctive opposition, without
any cause for it; that is a sort of thing
which it refreshes one to see. It muat
have been born in hor, don't you see?
for she didn't know me, never act eyes
on me. The little wild-cat! She felt
in every nerve of her that we were in
opposition, she and I."
"Don't you think you give too much
importance to the nonsense of a girl ?
I know," said Edward, with a very
serious nod of his head, "what girls
are. I have six sisters. They are
strange beings. They will go off at a
tangent in a moment, Pull a wrong
string, touch a wrong stop, and they
aro all off—in a moment."
"You forget that I wu once a girl
myself."
"It iB a long time ago, Aunt Catherine," said the ruthless young man,
"I dare say you have forgotten;
whereas I, you know, have studied the
subject up to il» very last development."
Miu Vernon shook her head at him
with a playful menace, and then the
tea wu brought in, nnd lights. As he
went on talking, she could not refrain
from a little self-congratulation. What
a wiso choice ahe had made! Many
young men hurried out in the evenings,
made acquaintances that were not desirable, involved themselves in indifferent society. Edward seemed to
wish for nothing better than this soft
home atmosphere, her own company,
his books and occupations. What a
lucky choice! and at the ume time a
choice that reflected much credit on
herself. She might juat u well have
chosen his brother, who wu not so irreproachable, As ahe ut on the sofa
and took her tea, her eyes sought the
figure of the young man, pacing quietly
up and down in the dim space, filling
the house and the room and her mind
with a sensation of family completeness. Sho wu better off with Edward
than many a mother with her son. It
wu scarcely possible for Miu Vernon
to divest herself of a certain feeling of
complacency, Even the little adventure with the stranger at the Heronry
enhanced thia, Mrs. John, to whom
she had been so*magnanimous, to
whom sho had offered shelter, had
always beon against her; she had foreseen it, and, if not content with this
incident, wu ao with herself.

Whon Mrs. John awoke, confused
and not knowing where .he wu, very
early the noxt morning, she wu dismayed by the ttory which wu instantly poured into hor half-awakened ean.
Hester, it is to be feared, had not
shown that respect for hor mother's
slumbers which .he had enforced upon
Miss Vernon. The girl wu too impatient, too eager to tell all that had
happened. "Of course I wns not goini
to let her come in and disturb you,
she cried. "I. that how poople behave
in England ? She had not even a bonnet on. No. I did not uk her to
come in. It wu ao late and, besides,
I nevor heard of people making calls at
night; people you don't know."
"Oh, my dear!" uid Mrs. John, in
dismay, "oh Heater] what have you
done t Catherine Vernon turned away
from the door! She will never forgivo
you, never, u long u lhe lives."
"I don't care, uid Hester, almost
■ullenly. "How wu I to know ? Even
if I had been quite aure it wu Cousin
Catherine, I ihould not have lot the
queen in to disturb you."
