A wonderfully sagacious—nay, I
might safely say—intelligent dog,
wns this self same Morton when I
had llnr pleasure of making his acquaintance itt "Orange, a populous
and thriving town in sunny Kew
Soutli Wales. He was but a youngster of IS or 18 months, and the
property of iv widow lady, who with
her daughters had taught him ninny
little politenesses. He had an ear
for tlie variations of sound und
music, and was so apt a pupil that
when told to piny the piano, lie
would jump up on the music-stool,
mill,- like many young misses, ho
would bang away nt the ivories regardless of the strength of the wires
or tlio ears of his audience. As his
musical performances had anything
but a benelitial effect upon the instrument his education in this department was discontinued. His
ear for sound was shown to best advantage in the dining-room.
" Sit up to the table, Morton."
With instant obedience he would
jump up or sometimes clamber up
into a chair, although he was so very
fat that very little exertion made
him puff and blow liko a juvenile
steam-engine. Having taken his
seat he would fix his beautifully expressive brown eyes on whoever had
invited him to the table, and, as if
ho were trying to say, "Don't you
understand met" he would after a
moment or two look towards the
viands on the table and then back
again
"Ask, Morton!"
"Whoo!" The spaniel would reply
in a gentle tone. ..-.- f* ntti lit 11
"Ask louder." *  "MM
"Whoo! Whoo!! Whoolll" Morton would respond in a key loud
enough to make even a truant boy
hear when skating 3 miles from
school.
But it wns not only in matters
where the appetite was concerned
that he shone. When told to do so,
he would shut the door. This, by
standing on his hind legs and banging himself against it; and when
told to open the door be would get
hia mouth over the knob and try
very hard to obey. He had been
taught obedience, and hence was
useful as well as amusing,
If told to bring in wood, he was
equal to the command, and, wagging his tail, would leave the room,
returning with a piece of fugwood.in
his mouth.
Morton had a literary taste as
well. Every afternoon he instinctively knew the exact time whon the
newspaper should be left at the
front door. Not a day did he miss
tho "news," and judging from his air
of importance, his stately gait, and
the knowing look he gave his mistress as ho brought it to her, he was
cognizant of the exalted position ho
held in tho household.
His mistress mado him a Scotch
cup, decorated with feathers and
nicklo, of which ho was very proud,
and when told to "fetch" his cap,
he know exactly where to lind it.
A cat and a goat were his companions. Of these he was very fond,
and it was laughable to sue Morton
and the goat walking out   together.
When his feline playraato had tlio
misfortune to have a log broken ho
was most attentive, and with a
sympathetic look would lie down
by her side for hours at a time,
A Findlay, Ohio, dispatch of the
21st ult., says: Tho people of this
vicinity wore terrified last night on
seeing strange flashes of light in the
northern sky assume the shape of a
human hand. The appearance lasted an hour. The first finger of the
hand seemed to point at the sleeping
eity, while blood seemed to drip from
all the lingers.
Parisian prophets are not taking
much stock in Ilnulanger's future.
He was 50 years old on April 29th,
and they argue that since Napoleon
bocame first consul at 30, and Napoleon 141 was elected president of
the republic at 40, Boulanger is a
trifle aged for any great revolutionary deeps.
Recent tests of three typos of
storage batteries, intended for
street-car service, gavo encouraging
results. Tho accumulators showed
an efficiency of 89.3 to 91 per cent
when tested for quantity, and 78.5
to 83.4 per eent, when tested for
energy.
Joa. Hoiuulin, M. 1)., Hull, l*. Q.,
write.: "Dr. Thomas' Kclectric OU commands a largo and increasing sale whioh
it richly merits. 1 have always formd it
exceedingly helpful:. I use it In all esses
of rheumatism, as well as fractures and
dislocations. I mado uso of it myself to
calm the pains of a broken log with dislocation of the foot, and in two days I
was entirely relieved of the pain."

Mitkiewiez eonceastoiiB which everybody thought completely dead, wero
brought before the public to-day iu a
manner which leaves no doubt of their
validity. Patera wero shown in the
court 'rf common plen-i to-dny by Count
MitkiBwibK and his asaocinte P&ihu,
bringing auit againat Wharton Barker
for neglect to carry out liis agrreemont
and alleging fraud and ci>llunion with
other partial to deprive Mitkuwicz
and Paine of thoir rights. The oom*
plaint'Recites tlmt Barker agreed to
furnish nil of tho monoy necessary to
obtain tho concessions aud to organize
and capitalize tho companies required
to carry on the business contracted to
bo performed, while the complainants
wero to conduct tha negotiations iu
China, It further alleges that he,
Mitkiewicz, obtained the concessions
and returned to America, accompanied
by a Chinese envoy empowered to conclude the agreements made with the
vicerov, Li Hung Chang, but that Barker, while entertaining aaid viceroy as
hia guest executed with the latter certain papers leaving the complainants
completely out of the schemes contemplated. Having done this, tho com*
plaiuants further allege that Barker
brought certain other parties into the
projects and proceeded to organize cortain companies but not the ones he originally agreed to organize. Mitkiewicz
claims that by ignoring him and dealing direct with the Chinese envoy,
Barker violated his agreement with
him, and by refusing or neglecting to
organize the companies required by
the original agreement he is seriously
impairing the chances of success in the
enterprises which he declares are
merely awaiting the fulfilment of Bar
ker'a part of the contract to become nn
accomplished fact. He further demands to be reimbursed in the sum of
818)000 for the expense in conducting
the negotiations and prays that Barker
be compelled to organize a company
with $6,000,000 capital, iu which the
complainants, Mitkiewicz and Paine,
shall be interested as orignally agreed.
THE CANADIAN   SYSTEM.
Washington, June 8.—In the house
to-day the Dinirley resolution was
adopted calling on the secretary of tho
treasury for information as to whether
an order is now in force by which
United States vessels passing througe

when they make their voyage via the
St Lawrence, pay less tolls than whon
they make it by way of Lake Ontario,
and whether further legislation is
necessary to authorize the seoretary to
impose additional tolls upon vessels
passing through the Sault Ste. Marie
csnal bound to Canadian ports in case
Canada continues her discrimination
against vessels bound to American
ports.

San Franoisco, June 9.—It has been
learned here that the opium, valued at
820,000, seized at Indianapolis, yesterday, left Victoria, B.C., about the eighth

small boat to a place kept by a man
named Saunders. The consignment was
taken tho same night to Smith's Creek,
a small station on the Grand Trunk railway, whence it was shipped by express
to T. Winter, Indianapolis. Both Saunders and Winter have been arrested and
enough evidence has been gathered to
convict them.
ALCOHOL OR ILL-TREATMENT.
San Francisco, June 9.—Notwithstanding the verdict of the coroner's jury
that alcoholism was the cause of the
death of Joseph Morris, fireman of the
str, Willamette, who shipped at Seattle

caused by ill-treatment and abuse from
the officers of tho vessel. Four of them,
who havo left the vessel, state that the
officers compelled Morris to work In the
hot fire room when he was so ill he could
scarcely stand up, Ue tried to throw
himself overboard but was stopped by
the captain, who had him bound. The
cords were tied so tightly about his
wrists that his arms became swollen and

to be the train robbers tint attacked
tho Kah lta Kee express last night.
The whole county is thoroughly aroused
over the matter, the excitement being
intensified by news of the death of
Baggagomastor Ketoham. The capture was a signal for immediate threats
of a quadruple lynching.
SHIPPING DISASTER.
San Francisco, June 9.—A despatch
to the Merchants' Exchange, from Crescent City, says the schr. Berwick wont
ashore at Rogue river this morning. The
schooner is valued at $5000. The str.
Mariposa arrived from Australia, via
Honolulu, this morning. The Chinese
agitation in Australia has becomo firmly
rooted and total oxolusion of Chinese appears to bo tho dosiro of all. Feeling
has beon roused up to so rash a pitch
that several outrages havo occured. Chinese quarters in a numbor of places have
been destroyed by the rough dement
The Mariposa on hor trip up went
threo hundred miles out of tier way to
Palmyra Islands and took off tho crew
nnd passengers of the bark Hector Jamos,
which had boon wrecked there six weeks
previously. The James was a large iron
vossol and carried a cargo of coal from
Glasgow for San Francisoo, The shipwrecked crew and pusengera endured
many hardships while o« the bland*,
their provisions and ihelftr boing limited, jjpailj! f ritish €ohtmbimi
Saturday Lvculug, June 0, 18K8.
A few days asp .'wo atated editor-,
ially and otherwise that the ship
Oamaua, Oapt.' Gordon, had been
chartered for this port, through tlie
enterprise of the Royal Oity Pinning Mills Co., who oll'erecl special
inducements to secure the vessel for
loading lumber at -their mills. Today, it will be seen by perusing the
Columbian, that this energetic
manufacturing firm do nothing by
halves. Besides the Ourimnn, which
will be in port on Mondny or Tuesday, they liave arranged ' for three
more lurge sen-going vessels, ull of
which will be here before the ond of
the present month. One of these,
the Puritan, expected to arrive
about the 25th, is an immense four-
masted vessel. All of these vessels
have been secured by some sacrifice
on tho part of the It. 0. P. M. Co.,
which would not havo had to be
made if a propor oflicial chart had
been furnished beforo now for tho
channel of the Fruiter. Tho company
can not nilbrd to make further concessions of this nature, nor should
they be required to do so, and wo
again urgo upon the authorities to
comply without delay with the very
reasonable und urgent demands from
this quarter in the matter of the
necessary official chart. Interested
parties in rival localities are doing
their utmost to prevent justice being
done to the Fraser river. Some of
this deadly opposition is sugar-coated, but none the less noxious, Similar endeavors in the past have had a
measure of success, and now that a
crisis is imminent, redoubled efforts
nre being put forth. We trust that
the authorities will not allow themselves to be biased by tbe plausible
misrepresentations of designing men,
As will be seen by an article in an
other column, the channel has been
much improved in several respects,
and is now perfectly safe for very
large ships, What wo want, and
demand, is an official chart, and that
the channol shall be further improved until it shall bo a perfect
thoroughfare for the world's commerce.
Government by party would seem
to be a necessary evil. Its most
ardent admirers can hardly say that
it is an unmixed blessing. Ono of
the most damaging indictments tlmt
can be brought against it is that
good measures are sometimes de
feated—not on their own merits or
demerits, as the cose may be—but
purely from a party standpoint.
Speaking of the discussion of tbe
Fisheries Treaty by the United
States senate, the Monetary Time.
of Toronto, Ont., says: "The present Republican majority in tho senate has a party object in opposing
the treaty." Further it says: "The
non-mtilioatioii of the treaty becomes more and more certain." Thu
same article concludes: "It may bo
taken for granted that wo shall havo
to fiill bfiok on the nimnged modiU
vivendi, to which indeed eifoct has
already been given liy onler-in-coun-
cil passed by tho Canadian government, under authority of the Treaty
not of lust session. This arrangement i.-, for the limited term of two
year.*!; and under it American lisher-
•meu will have the privilege of purchasing bait, ice, seines, lines, 'and
all other supplies and outfits,' Shipping of crows and transhipment of
catch. These privileges are to be
obtained by means of licenses granted by tho Canadian government, but
which do not confer the privilege of
fishing or preparing to fish within
tho murine limits of Canada. Similar licenses will be granted by the
government of Newfoundland, and
both will be obtainable from collectors of customs of tho maritime
provinces, or of Newfoundland.
These licenses would be issued freo
in the event of tho United Stntes
removing the duties on fish, fish-oil,
whale and seal-oil, with their coverings and packages, otherwise a charge
of $1,50 a ton will be made for them.
Applications for licenses have already begun to bo reoeived. American fishing vessels may enter our
harbors and those of Newfoundland
without entering at the custom
houses, provided they do not remain
more than twenty-four hours and
do not communicate with tbe shore.
Seizures will be liable to bo made
for illegal fishing or preparing to
fish, with the penalty of forfeiture,
ns before," Thus it would seem that
the arduous labors and carefully
reached conclusions of tho lute renowned Fisheries Commission aro
to end in smoke—a sort of incense
from the sacrifice on the altar of the
great Moloch of party,
Ex-Governor Dewdnoy's appoint-
ment as Minister of the Interior in
the Dominion cabinet is one in
whieh we are interested generally,
but on account of his being one of
British Columbia's early pioneers we
feel a particular interest in the announcement. With regard to his
qualifications, so far as his experience
is concerned there could not be a
fitter, His acquaintance with British Columbia and tho Northwest
(und these form the great interior of
the Dominion) is more intimate tban
most men in the Dominion. The
part that Mr. Dewdney took with
regard to th« locution of the transcontinental railway dowu.the valley
Children Qryfor Pitcher1. Castoria
of the Fraser, and the light that he
threw on that   subject   at   a   time
when ignorance unci prejudice  were
combined to carry tlmt. great rail
way project away beyond the laninds
of civilization, were of grqat  vajno,*
not only to thtj Dominion ut large,
hut to British Coluinbin.   The people of Westminster especially will
not forget the services lie rendered
to thia district, in being the   means
of very much assisting in thwarting
the selfish sohemes on foot   at  that
time with respect to the- great work
whicli is,now completed.   Since his
removal to tlio North west .is governor wo hnve   known   comparatively
very little of hiti   career;   it   must
luiyo been satisfactory lo  the  Dominion government, or they  would
not have promoted him as they hnve
done now. The principal thing, if we
recollect, that has appeared against
his administration of the government
intrusted to his care has been   with
respect to the liquor   permits,   by
means of which intoxicating liquors
wero introduced  into  a  territory
whero it was forbidden by statute.
Wc cannot say what was the exact
nature of the franchise   which ho
disponsed by these permits, and cannot form a judgment on the matter,
If ho did favor the introduction of
the   "mountain   dew"   into   those
trackless plains,   he   certainly   did
wrong, but so long as the leaders of
the people, supported by tho people
themselves, uphold   the   trailic   of
which that was   only   one   of   the
phases, such action could not consistently bo   charged against   him,
Complaints were also laid against
Mr. Dewdney, we believe, with respect to his administration of Indian
affairs in tbe Northwest, but bow
much  weight to give these, on account of the party animus which may
havo inspired them, wo cannot say.
We have not heard where he is likely to get a vacant constituency, but
no doubt that will bo forthcoming.
This province might make a  vacancy: it has dono such   things before,
and might do so again.   Wc  would
be nothing the worse of n friend at
court, who understood our   position
and could further our claims on the.
govornment for help in many necessary public works. It has often been
urged that British Columbia should
be represented in the   cabinot,   but
how are we to be represented if   wo
do not take such an opportunity   as
the present ?   Our present representatives are not likely to be culled to
such a position, and   it.   might bo
some time beforo all the   conditions
would bo favorable to such a contingency.  In making these suggestions
we are not unmindful that we   may
be trespassing on vested rights;  but
we tako it for  grunted   that   our
present represent lives, as well   as
their constituents, nre at all   times
prepared to make sacrifices for the
genera! good.    We would commend
the suggestion to the consideration
of the various constituences, at any
rato, with tlie roniiuder that, if anything is to done, it* must hb   dono
(juickly.     Who'll h- first i     Don't
all speak at once.

manufacturo of thosum. Then thoydls-
tributu thqiS largu cans and buckets
through tho forest at convelilont intervals, aud proceed to businchu.
When tho ulero Selects his tree, ho
clears tho trunk of vines and creepers and
climbs it to tho branches. Then ho descends, cutting diagonal channels through
the bark with a single blow of his hatchet
or knife, left and right, all nieoling at
the angle. At tho bottom of the lowest
cut au iron trough about six Inches long
and four inches widu is driven iuto tho
treo, which catches the milk as it flows
from the wound, and conducts it Into a
bucket on the ground below. This is done
with great speed and skill by nu expert,
nnd necessarily so to prevent waste, asthe
snp springs out instantly, and by the
time tho spout is driven into the treo Is
flowing at the rate of four gallons an
hour.
A largo treo will produce twenty gallons
of sap, nnd will run dry in a single day.
Tho ulero having tupped n dozen or
eighteen trees has all tho work ho can
attend to emptying tho buckets inlo tho
ten-gallon cans that are provided for tho
purpose. Iu the evening the cans are
carried to the camp, und tho sap strained
through sieves into barrels. In Brazil it
is boiled, but in Nicaragua tho natives
have a peculiar system of reducing it.
There is a plant or vino colled the
achuun, tha sup of which when mixed
with that of the rubber tree has the singular property of coagulating it in a few
minutes. By whom, or how, or where,
this process wus discovered no one can
tell. Undoubtedly it was nn necident, for
ihe vino hangs from all the trees In the
ule forest, uud probably n cutting dropped
into a bucket of sapsomotime or another,
nnd produced the result for which it is
sow used.
Having their barrels fnll, tho uleros
cut short pieces of this vine, soak It in
witter, and small bunches aro thrown iuto
pans upon which the sup Is poured. In
tho morning iho rubber has turned to
gum, ubout two pounds to avcry gullon of
sap.
At tho top of tho pan is a quantity of
dark brown liquid, like a weak solution
of licorice. This is poured off, and then
the gum is rolled under heavy weights of
wood into long, flat strips called tortillas, which are bung over poles under tho
shed to drip nnd dry. At flrst they aro
white liko tho vulcanized rubber, but
with exposure they turn black and be-
coiuo hard after a few days. Then tho
tortillas are stacked up tinder cover Until
tbo end of tho season, and Bhip])«u to

and pl-5 and, pickles, and whatever other
Boli-aa thu appetite craved; lint theto
wssu-fc any room for coffee unless you put
itiufl hcittli**
'J'iwu somebody devised a pail with two
comyuvthteuts, one pail fitting into another. Iu this way coffee might bVcilr-
rit-d iii one of tho. parts.
Then somo other genius got up n pail
with four or six separate partt(, all fitting
into each other and making it possible tri
curry four or six articles apart from each
other, 1.
This was good, hut it was discounted by
tho follow who got out a patent ou a device whereby tho coffee could be heated tit
noontime wherever the workman might
be. Tho device consists of a wnd of asheii-
tos cloth two inches in diameter nnd nn
inch thick. This is covered with tin, hnd
thore is on opening at the topcxposiu^-tho
cloth. The whole thing is just like a
small round tin box packed with ns^'htos
and open iifc the top. The workman ':.:\

will do to beat his coffee, Agrtutliuw y

One other scheme has been patented.
It consists of it tin pot, which mnv hu

Tiio heat so geuernted will worm nnythln 7

coffee may bo heated very quickly.

night. The ex-Bishop of Nassau, tho
ex-Bishop of JSululmid, together with
the Bishops of Auckland, Waiapu, Colombo, Singapore, Algoma, Znigloy,
and Antigua, were amongst the primate's guests. Most of tho Fnglish
prelates were also present. To-day it
has been scarcely possible to tike a

most simple manner. He placed his
left foot against ihe door jamb nbout
18 inches above the floor and endeavored to accomplish the trick of jumping
over the left limb with tho right one.
Ho was successful iu his first attempt,
but met with tho misfortune referred
tu in his second elfort. Tho break is
a about a couplo of inches below the
knee. It is a compound fracture, the
broken bones protruding through the
skin. Dr. Davie set the limb in St.

A Juvenile Traitor.
Tho baenball and cricket grounds
was tho scene of unwonted animation
this morning. To-day being Saturday,
and consequently a holiday at the
public schools, the "small boy" turned
out in nil his native fierceness and took
possession of tho play-ground of his
elders, and a lively, but slightly
amended, game of baseball wns played
"to a finish," One sido of course had
to win, but tho result wns eminently
unsatisfactory to the youthful partisans opposite, who openly and vociferously charged one of their own number with selling the game for "two
bits," The scene presented and the
sounds produced for a short time
might bo compared tu tha sensation
which several thousand magpies and a
dead horse would ora-.to. The mercenary urchin so summarily convicted
made tho best "homo run" on record,
and will probably be "sent to Coventry" for n week:
A Knit Time Coming.
The prophetic conference, whioh
has just boon hold at Exeter Hal),

and revolutions in Europe ns shall
change twonty-three kingdoms into
ten. On March 5,1800, rain or shine,

and enrthqunkos nre to devastate the
globe. Finally, on April 11,1901, Our
\nmi is to descend again to earth. AU
thia was firmly agreed on by the conference, aud published to the unheeding
world "on the authority of the Prophet
Daniel." Oh Daniel! How many absurdities hnve boen, and are, and shall

ANOTMER_VlCfORY
lour Ships Chartered to load lumber
at New Wc»1 minuter for lords"
I'arlH.
Tho Royal City mills received a despatch this nfurntng, frum Victoria, tu
tho effect tlmt the ship Camaua was
ready to proceed to this port, and as
soon as a tug was available she would
be towed over. It iB expected Bhe will
arrive on Monday night or Tuesday
morning. All arrangements for loading tho cargo aro completed nnd the
vessel will not bo detained a day longer than is absolutely necessary. In
announcing that the Camaua had been
chartered to load lumber at Westminster we predicted that no serious
I rouble would be met with In charter
ing other vessels, and thia has como
truo even aoonor than Uio most sanguine expected. The Royal City
mills uot content with chartering ono
vessel have, with their well-known enterprise, already chartered another,
(lie Puritan, anil she ia now.on the
voyage from <xm Diego to this port,
Tho Puritan is a large i masted ship,
and almost new, this being her third
voyage since launching. She will load
lumber for lower California and is expected to reach port on the 25th inst.
Following the Puritan two other vessels have been chartered and will reach
Westminster before tho end of the
month. In order to seoure these vessels the company have been forced to
offer special inducements, but with the
loading of the last vessel the inducements will cease and tho port will only
offer the same conditions us its neigh-
burs. This, of courso, is only natural
as the benefit of lying in fresh water,
the ease with which ballast can be discharged aud the excellent arrangements for loading will make it a favorite port with shipowners and captains.
The river has beon properly spar
buoyed and the buoys on the sandheads have beon replaced wherever
necessary, thus making navigation as
free and Bafe to the Fraser River as to
any port on tho coast. What now remains to place Westminster on an
even footing with her sister ports is on
official'chart, and thia we must have,
aud that immediately. For two years
tho Dominion government hns been
making improvements at tho mcuth of
the river and theBO improvements have
effectod much good to the channol,
having alrendy made a difference of 8
feet ut low tide, ln spite of the change,
both in tho course and in the depth of
tho channel, no steps havo been taken
to make an official survey, and the old
admiralty chart, made years ago, is the
only guide foreign shipowners have to
tho port. This, of course, is an injustice to Westminster, and, as is well
known, has proved the only barrier in
the way'of chartering vessels. We believe strong efforts arc being made to
induce the government to order an official survey of the channel,
nnd it is to be hoped tho pressure
brought to bear will result success
fully.
Westminster can congratulate her-
solf on having gentlemen of suoh perseverance and enterprise as are the
managers of the Royal City mills, to
watch her interests, and gentlemen
who, despite the continued and unfair
efforts made by unfriendly neighbors
to balk our advancement, havo fought
manfully against nil obstacles and nt
laBt have successfully overcome thorn.
The Crlr-krl   Mulch*
The cricket match this afternoon,
Old Country vs, Colonies, wns played
under!"VBj*y. favorable circumstances.
The day was fino but not too bright.
A cool, refreshing brooxa waa blowing
all afternoon and tho crense was in as
good condition as it ever wm. Play
began shortly after 2 o'clock, tho Old
Countrymen going to the bat first.
The only stand during tho innings was
made by Miles, who by careful playing
ran up n score of III when ho was
bowled by Lewis. The next highest
score WRfi threo runs. 11 seemed strange
that although U\e Old Countrymen had
the best players on their side, with thu
one exception, tidne of thorn could
raphe a stand, fw.o of the best players
bijing bowled withv.it |uctiruip. Douk-
rill'p bowling waa abpnl tho best yver
seen in Wc-itimiister, * Ho win. dead tin
tlie wlokot and it seemed as though ho
gained -more strength with every bail,
Such nu onslaught could not bo long
withstood, and wicket after wieki-t foil
till the 7th was reached for only S rufis,
Tho fielding ou the part of the colonies
was good as will bo seen by-tho few
extras made by their opponents.
