A police functionary of high rank

Minister of the Interior has Uiued
orders to watch rigorously all
academies and schools, as it has.
been discovered that tlie students
are collecting money secretly for
revolutionary purposes. lam informed on good authority from another source that tha priests in several provinces of Russia are now
among the most energetic members
of the revolutionary party.—St
Petershury despatch to London
Times.
It it stated that one of the amusing features of Pacific coatt travel
is a great number ofjlndian canoes
and paddles which tourists bring
from Alaska as old Indian relics.
Most of these paddles are made and
painted by Chinamen in San Francisco, shipped to Alaska points, and
Bold as Indian relics, brought down
to Tacoma on the steamers, and
carried thousand! of miles away.
The Atlantic side is not to be outdone in this regard, judging from
tlie.number of orange canes manufactured in New York that are daily
sent away by thousands as souvenirs
from Florida. Mr. Barnum was right
when he remarked that the dear
public loved to be humbuj[gBjliTrL

On one occasion, while in a barroom, Van Amburgh, the great lion
tamer, now dead, was asked now he
got his wonderful power over the
animals. He laid: "It it bj tkaw-
itt_ theni thnt I'm not tne least
afraid of them, and by keeping my
eye steadily on theirs. I'll give
you an example of the power of my
eye." Pointing to a loutish fellow
who was sitting opposite, Van Amburgh said: "You we that fellow?
He'a a regular clown. Ill make
him oome across the room to me,
and I won't say a word to Urn."
Sitting down, he fixed his keen,
steady eye on the man. Presently
the fellow straightened himself
gradually, got up, and came across
to Van Amburgh. When he got
close enough he drew back his arm
and struok the tamer a tremendous
blow under the chin, knocking him
clear ovor the chair, with the remark, "I hope you'll know me ag'in."
—Ifm York Graphic,
"Two nations, but one people,"
let us hope will always bo tbe keynote of Anglo-American policy. A
third nation, but not another people,
may Oanada become in time—is already so, indeed, in a sense; and it
is to to the honor of Mr. Cleveland's
Administration that they have
throughout steadily endeavored to
compose a difference among theso
nations that has been a lasting danger to their agreement as a people.
War for any cause among the nations of the Ango Saxon raoe would
be a staggering blow for civilization,
and disgraceful to all concerned.
Quarrels will arise, causes of war
even be bred, in the friction of competition; but, as in this case of the
fisheries, the two nations, of one
blood, one speech, one system of
laws, one habit of thinking, have
only to carry their dispute into
court to have it fairly adjudged, instead of coming to blows outside like
let autre*. Mr. Cleveland has done
well in the fisheries matter; nay- he
be able to complete the work, crown
ing his Presidency with honor, by
the conclusion of a permanent arbitration treaty with England.—
The Week.
The steamship Anchoria of the
Anchor line, which arrived yester
day, met a tornado on Saturday, 180
miles from Sandy Hook. The
wind came on from the north-east,
and in a very short time there was
a tretnendout sea running. The
rain came down in such floods that
the crow were scarcely able to
stand up on deck. The lightning
poured in stream! of a minute's
duration from the clouds to the
water, while globes of blue flame
played up and down tke rigging and
danced along the yards, and leaped
from inasti incessantly, terrifying
passengeri and seamen alike. For
nbout two houn the wind blew at
eighty milei an hour, Neither lookout nor pilot oould see beyond tho
ship's rail, because of the solid sheets
of rain and flying clouds of spray in
which the ship seemed to be walled
up as by a fog, The engines
were run dead slow, and tlie ship
lay to head to the gale, At the
end of two hours the gale broke
and pleasant weather soon followed.
No damugo was done by either
wind or electricity. Tbe steamship.

Nxw Yobx, Sept. 14.—Hon. John
Norquay, premier of the province of
Manitoba, was found at the Victoria
Hotel by a press news reporter this
afternoon. He said that he intended
to remain in New York-until next
Wednesday. By that time, he said,
he would have consummated one way
or the other the butinesi he is upon,
which was to get capital to build the
railway. He would know by Wednesday whether he oould secure this capital or not. He said that capitalist
bound up bankers had told him that
funds were tied up tight, at investors
had a fear of tome impending crisis.
Mr. Norquay added that he did not
think thit wat laid by the money
lendera with a view to bluff him off.
What the particulars of hit work here
wtt, he would not say, as it would be
indiscreet for him to place his antagonists in possession of hit schemes.
The reporter interviewed a leading
financial gentleman whose home it
engaged in floating government, ttate
and other securities. He laid that
there was little or no chance of money
being raised in New York for suoh
purposes as the construction of the
Bad River Valley road.   In the fint
Irlace, money wat, at Mr. Norquay
tated, tight; in the second place, no
house of any standing would look at a
loan of such a nature as this, which

of risk and uncertainty.

Wikhipeo, Sept 15.—In the Browning injunction case thit morning Chief
Juttiee Wallbridge expressed hit opinion that he would have to decide that
the province hat been proceeding legally in constructing the Bed River
valley railroad under the public workt
act Thit will probably throw out
all private cases and leave the Dominion injunction against crossing its
lands to be pitted againit a properly
legalized work.

Editor CoinrmiK.—I am happy to
inform you that Woods, Turner oV
Gamble have at hut deposited with
the city clerk a profile of city grades.
If thit had been done when I went to
get the grade nf Mary itreet: lut
June it would have uved me a very
unpleasant duty. Why these profiles
should have not been furnished to
the public before now is a question
which the publio would like to have
answered. I never held Woodt, Turner & Gamble responsible. Tha
Mayor and council are responsible to
the ratepayers for anything that may
be done, or left undone, which it
againit the public convenience. If .
woodt, Turner & Oo, ue fittomth
into a libel tuit tgaintt me, for making publio what every ratepayer should
know, they are at liberty.

the Dominion government, ii about to
locate a site for a model farm, A

nothing can be done in thit Dominion
unlest it it following extctly in the

and have a model farm too! I suppose
if we wire only a vut mining ngioh

when a matter of such serious Import
it the foundation of our futun iuaui'

of the people of thit province, I would
tutgeit thtt a committee be formed of
fmctical wcrken to wait on thit gent-
eman and to tell him, in the nana of
the people what we want and what the
government should do. Secondly, 1
would suggest that a Britith Colombia
Fruit Growen Association be formed
to act in conjunction with the government in estiblishing this induitry. In
conclusion, may I urge upon the people tho importance of making a eommon cause in thii respect, and by
cheerful and hearty co-operation as-

The uncertaintiea of law are
beautifully illustrated in the case
of the Northwestern Transportation
Co. vs. Beatty, in which judgment
was given a few days ugo by the
British Privy Council. The plaintiff in this case was Henry Beatty,
manager of the 0. P. R. steamship
lines, and formerly manager of the
Northwestern Transportation Co.
It seems that J. H. Beatty, who
held a large interest in the N.W.T.
Co., and was one of the directors,
sold the company his steamer the
United Empire. The plaintiff in
this case took action to set aside
the sale on the ground that J. H.
Beatty had no right as a director to
become a party to the purchase of a
steamer from himself. The matter
first came before the chancellor of
Ontario, who ordered the sale to be
set aside. An appeal was taken to
the court of appeal of Ontario,
which ordered the plaintiffs bill to
be dismissed with costs. Plaintiff
then appealed to the supreme court
of Canada, where the judgment of
the Ontario court of appeal was reversed. Then the defendant carried the case to the Privy Counoil,
where the Canadian supreme court's
decision waa set aside and the
judgment of the Ontario court of
appeal reaffirmed! The costs after
auch a series of reversals must have
been enormous, and it is satisfactory
to know that there are no other
tribunals to which the matter may
he carried.
In another column we publish a
communication calling attention to
the importance of developing fruit
culture in this province. We are
not prepared to say that the cultivation of fruit is our most important provincial industry, but it certainly is one which demands very
serious attention. The testimony
of those who have visited us, added
to the experience of our own fruit
growers, leaves no room to doubt
tho adaptability of our climate and
soil and circumstances for the sue
cessful production of fruit. A
large area of the southern portion of
the province is admirably suited for
this purpose, and there is no other
place in Canada where fruit can be
produced in such abundance and
with so little labor. Moreover, we
have an excellent and growing market conveniently adjacent, on the
east side of tSe mountains, where
the demand for fruit ia always in
excess of the supply. At present
enormous quantities of fruit are
being shipped from California to
this province and the Northwest
bcuauiie our local producers are not
able to meet even the local demand.
The money that goes out of the country in payment for this fruit ought
to go into the pockets of our own
fruit growers—and it will just aa
soon as they are. able to supply the
market. Within tlie past two or
three yean a great deal of ground
has been covered with, fruit trees,
and if the same enterprise continues
we shall be able shoitly to produce
all the fruit required for ourselves
and our nearest neighbors east of
the mountains. It is important,
however, to get the best kinds of
fruit and adopt the best methods,
nnd this can best be accomplished
by organized effort.
A few days ago we pointed out
the danger which threatened destruction to the old political parties
in the United States through a multiplication of other organizations
brought together with various objects in view. The New York
JFtlnes* of the 7th inst. holds similar views. It says: "The Mugwump
Democrats of Maryland are sup
porting the Republican tioket, and
the liquor-loving memben of the
Republican party in Iowa are bolting their party platform and nominations. With two or three labor
parties, a greenback party and a
prohibition party in the Held, it is
becoming more and more evident
that the old parties are not going to
have all the fun between them much
longer." Almost every day one
hears of new diviiions among the
American politicians. Of late the
reform party seems to have been
losing faith in the honesty of President Cleveland. The fint year or
mora of his administration was
marked by a fairly honest application of the principle of civil service
reform which had been a principal
plank in the platform of his supporter!. Hii firiuneu in resisting
the importunities of Democratic
machine politicians who were hun
gry tor (polls was the very quality
which had secured for him the votes
of thousands of honest Republicans
who had a higher regard for principle than for party. But, (or
reasons which no one bas explained,
many of the more recent appointment! of the president have been
anything, but creditable to him.
Especially in Maryland he has given
office! of truit to spoils politicians
whose record ihould have excluded
them from all executive favor, As a
result tmwte isa split in tha Democratic party of Maryland. Honor-
•ble men belonging to that party
have \*mm».do disgusted atthe
presidential appointmenta that thoy
have openly declared against the
DemooHtk itate ticket, and signified  an intention  to support the
Republicans. If this serious defection is not healed, and others prevented, the outlook for the Democrats at the next election will be
anything but hopeful.

A LAMENT.
The following poem was written by the
lute Richard Lyle. of Danville, va., i
lawyer of fine legal and literary attain
infills, who plunged himself into despal
ilii'ultgh the "sparkling glass."
I Have lici'ii tu thu 1'iinorul of ull my hopes,
Aii.l Intvit untuniiiiiil them one by one;
Nut » wnnl was said,
Nut a tKin-was shed,
Whon tho mom-miil task was done,
slowly anil willy I turned me round     ;"
And sought my silent room,
Ami thure nlone
By thu cold heurthstono
I wooed tho niittniglit gloom,

Those who are working for the Palestine Kxploratloh Fund in Jerusalem are,
it is said) bnlthe eve of most important
discoveries.   It is well known, writes the
London corespondent of tho Mancheiler
Guardian, that there aro three walls of
Jerusalem, of which the flrst Is attributed
, to tho time of David, and the second to
thnt al Kchcuiialj, while the third was
iiuurlt later, und not more than an unimportant outwork.   In the days of Christ,
the second was io (11 intent! and purposes the eity wall.  Portions of a wail
Imvrr lately been uncovered which, on ac-.
Hcoutit of it! characteristic old  Jewish
nworkinanalilp, exportsavoris beyond all
11 doubt tho second wall.   Now this seems
[7 to travel in such a direction that the
I Holy Sepulchre would be included in its
1 ambit.   If further  excavations should
tirove this conjecture to bo truo, it would
>e shown to demonstration that the so-
[ called "holy places" cannot be what they
I are said to be, for it is certain that the
I Sepulchre must have been outside the
l walls. _    , _:....
A STAMPEDE.
Did you ever see a stampede of bufla-
loes ? No I Well, the man who has seen
one, and lived to tell of it, has witnessed
a spectaclo to be vividly remembered all
bis days,
A stampede was a common occurrence
in the life of every western hunter
twenty years ago; but no one will ever
look upon one again. Tbe hide hunters
have not left a score of the animals alive.
What creates a stampede ? Nothing—
anything. While the btifialo is born in a
wild state, and ourdit to get accustomed
to storms, the sight of wolves, and nil
kinds ol noises, he iB the most timid animal on earth. I have seen the coming
up of a dark cloud stampede ten thousand
bnlTaloDs. I have known tho howl of a
woll to Bet a big herd in motion. A Hush
of lightning or n clap ol thunder seemed
to scare them half to death, although vou
would argue that thoy would get used to
it. And once started nothing hut a
mountain could turn the great wave aside
und only exhaustion would bring tliom
back to thoir senses, After a herd had
fairly started, terror seemed to take complete jroi-scgKion of them, nnd it was the
dovil seize tbe lust one. Then it was woe
to the pioneer or hunter who happened
to bo in their path without a grove to
shelter them.
1 saw, in 1807, on tho LonpFork of the
Platte Hlver, an emigrant camp which
had been run over by n stampede. There
hud been seven wagons and 24 people,
with about 30 head of horses nnd crittlo.
The rushing, terror-stricken herd struck
tho camp just at daybreak and was 15 or
20 minutes passing. Only one human
being escaped—a man who was curried
off on the buck of a buffalo, and left at
a spot 10 miles away. Not an animal
was lelt, not a vehicle escaped destruction. I saw the site of the camp ubout
noon of that day, and there wasn't a
fleco of any of the heavy wagons which
could not have, carried off under my
arm. The people had been tramped into
tlio oarth—annihilated—wiped out. Tlie
remains could scarcely be recognized as
those of human beings.
But as to my own adventure. There
were four hunters of us in the locality
spoken of, killing various kinds of game
nnd doing a littlji trapping, and though
plenty ol redskins were in that e.iuntry,
they did not get on to us for a week. Wo
iiiul a camp on a smnll run or creek, with
a grove of about a dozen trees for shelter,
and about two miles to the north was a
spring ami another grove.
The Indians hadn't got hold ol Winchesters and knew nothing of revolvers
in those days, and a war party of loss
than 23 would have hesitated to attack
four huntere. We kept our eves open,
however, and ono was on the watch
while tlio other throe slept. Wo had
been in camp nine or ten days, and constantly surrounded by buiiriloes, when,
one afternoon, just before sunset, it was
apparent from tho actions of the animals
thnt something was ill tlie wind. The
detachments were consolidating, all stray-
bulls joining the herds, and almost every
buffalo ceased feeding and acted anxiously and ill at ease.
That meant indinus. Curious as vou
mav think it, the presence ot an inilirin
will disturb tho buffaloes sooner thiin
that of tlie white man. We couldn't Bay
whether it was a war irarty lirnuing
around to attack us, or u hunting party
hovering on the Hunks ot tlie great herd,
but we made all preparations thnt night
to doiend ourselves.
I have spoken of tho second grove. It
was composed of a few stunted cotton-
woods, and was in no sense a shelter.
Now this is what happoned during the
night.*-A- war purly of about 30 Indium*
took up their position in this little grove,
calculating to Bweep down onus at daybreak and carry our camp bv storm.
Along toward daylight they mounted and
rode softly down to within a quarter of a
j mile of us, and thore waited for day to
: breuk. They would be observed by the
sentinel, but would make a rush and
carry the camp. Well, it was just coming day, and live, minutes more would
have discovered them to the sentinel,
when the big herd, which had been
gathering to the north of us, began n
stampede. The sentinel heard them at
the first start off, and roused us up, and
by the timo we bad our guns in hand we
could see the indian war party. They
knew whit was up better than we did,
but they were caught between two fires,
and tlie chief was too slow-witted for the
occasion. His policy should havo been
to charge us. He might have lost six or
eight men, bnt tho shelter of the grove
would have saved the rest and given
them our sculps to boot. He might not
have known our strength, and so, alter
spending the valuable minutes in reflection, ho ordered tho party off to tho loft.
The only hope they could havo was in
riding across the face of the herd, but that
was out of the question. The front covered, its we afterward knew a distance ol
seven miles, and the Indians had barely
got started when the first buffaloes were
In sight.
They came thicker than bees, their
heads down, horns rubbing, and foot
making a great clatter, and while we
looked we saw the war party swallowed
up in that great heaving sea of animal
life. A moment later au old bull dashed
into and through the grove, and every
man sprang for u tree. As I was climbing up my foot struck a buffalo ou Iho
back, ana beforo I was secure only the
flvo largest trees in tho grove wore standing. All others had been uprooted by
contact, and three crippled animals were
lying on tlio ground beneath me. Our
horses, camp, overy tiling, went in two
minutes. The noise was 10 times more
deafening than a hurricane at-sea, and the
terror of the animals was something appalling.
I have told yon that tlie front of the
herd was seven miles across. You can
judgo what the depth must have beon
when I tell you that they were three
hours in passing. Every animal was
running for his life, and hiB pace could
not havo been less than 10 miles an hour.
I shouldn't hesitate to make affidavit
tbat the herd was a good 30 miles deep.
The animals ran, as we afterward knew,
fully 40 miles before they slowed down
at all. When the lost one had passed un
the country about us was a sight to behold. There wcreat least 150 dead or
crippled animals in sight, and there was
a swath seven miles wide, which had eu:
the very life out of tho prairie. Of all
our camp equipage we could not find one
solitary article of wood, or iron, or leather. All onr horses, had been trampled
under within less than, a mile ol the
grove, and their bodies wero sights no
one could look at twico. We spread out
to seo what fate had befallen the Imli ins,
and we did not have to go far. They hud
been knocked dowh ond stamped Into
the earth. A member of thosome trib',
with whom I talked a year Inter, told me
that not one survived, and tho loss hal
almost demoralized the tribo,

Stri'cka Snau.—Last evening while
the anag boat Samson was backing out
from its moorings it struck a anag in
the shape of a salmon not whioh waa
floating peacefully down the atream iu
tow of a fishing boat. The wheel of
the ateamer got badly mixed up with
the net and it required much delicnlo
persuasion and aomo strong and forcible language to entice the wheel to let
go its hold. Neither snag boat or net
suffered any great amount of damage.

The Boval Oitv.—Notwithstanding
the phenomenal strides Vancouver ia
making, Westminster is not going
back. On the contrary hor progress
this year haa been tbe greatest witnessed for many years. Magnificent
blocks of buildings are railing their
topi heavenward!, aa aro alio villas
and substantial residences throughout
the city and in its proximity. All thia
indicates unmistakably a strong feeling
of confidence on the part of the citizena
in the stability of the place and ita
future proapeisti.—K«. rimes.

Thi BiriEs Paradb.—The rifle
company, under Capt. Scoullar, paraded last night at 8 o'clock for annual
drill. The men turned out in good
numbers and exhibited by their strict
attention to drill and the manner in
which the movements were performed
that they are atill determined to retain
the proud diitinction of " aeeond to
none.". The Drill Shed is much to
small, even for company drill, and a
movement should be aet on foot at
onoe by our citizens to petition the
government, through Mr. Ohisholm,
our member, for a larger and better
appointed drill hall.
The Cricket Match.—The match
on Saturday with the Vancouver club
promises to be a very interesting
event although our eleven aren ot likely
to come out of tho contest successful owing to lack of practice. Tho Vancouver club on the other hand haa
been practicing steadily forp the last
two months, during which timo it has
played a match almost every week,
therefore they ought to play in splendid form on Saturday. The match
will begin at 10:30 and two innings
will be played. The following gentlemen will compose the Westminster
eleven: Cotton, Monek, Woods,
Falding, Dockrill, Read. Walker, H.
Wilaon, Lewis, Tyler, Fletcher. Spare
men Gamble mid Webb.

The municipal counoil of 'Victoria
haa gained a provincial notorety for
the lively character of it* proceedings.
But it hasn't quite a monopoly of thia
kind of entertainment. At a meeting
of the aeparate school board, held
lately in the great moral oity of Toronto, and presided over by the Rev.
Vicar-Genoral Booney, some vory lively work was done. It seems that the
tmatee board had taken part in the
jubilee procession, and the result waa
a bill of 848 fur Cab hire. Ono of the
trustees, Mulligan, ktoully opposed
payment of this bill, and went no far
as to aay that the jubilee affair "waa
nothing more nor leas than an Orange
procession!" ThiB brought ovory
trustee to Ilia feet, and Kennedy we
are told, shouted across the table, at
the top of hia voice, "Mulligan, you're
a liar; Mulligan you're a liar, and you
know it! If I had you outside I would
break your big long nose!" In vigor
the language used by the Toronto
trustee la quite up to anything hitherto reported from Victoria council; but
if Mayor Fell and councillor Barnard
remain in the council next year, we
are inclined to think Kennedy will be
nowhere. 	
Military Supper.
Laat evening after parade the officers
of the rifle company invited the non
com. officers and men to a aupper at
the Club, where a very tempting table
had been laid. Among the invited
gueiti present were Capt. Peele, Oapt.
Bole, Lieut. Glover and Lieut. Mowat.
Dr. Trew, surgeon of the rifles, waa alio present. Cant. Scoullar occupied
the chair, and Lieut. Doane and Lieut,
Rickman the vice ohaira.
The table waa laid out very prettily,
and with the row of fine soldierly looking fellows on either aide presented a
view not soon to be forgotten. When
desert had been brought in Captain
Scoullar roso and propoaed the
"Queen," which waa drank in the usual loyai manner, the whole company
singinv "God Save the Queen.'
Lieut. Doane Hie propoaed the "Princo
of Wale* and Royal family," after
drinking whioh Lieut. Rickman sang a
very funny song in capital atyle.
Songs from Capt. Peele, Lieut. Glover,
Corp. Bonson, Privolea Townsend,
Bensen, Carroll and others followed,
after which Capt. Scoullar rose. and
proposed the health of "Our Brother
OIBcera," which waa drank in true
military style. Oapt. Bole, Lieut.
Glover and Lieut. Mowat replied to the
tout and expressed their gratification
at being preaent on the occasion.
Lieut. Bickman proposed the health
of Oapt Peele, who responded in a very
neat speech reviewing the hiitory of
the company during the time he com'
manded it. In conclusion he caution
ed the men to be careful with Iheir
drill, obey orders without a murmur,
attend all parade* and they would
still be able to keep up the reputation
already gained of boing the beat drilled
company iu the province.
Oapt. Scoullar then made a vory neat
little speech In reply lo the laat apeak-
or, and promised that llio efforts of
himself ond hla two ablo nontenants
