that Dock Refund,
The people ol Now Westminster distriot. will no doabt feel joyful ovor th.
attnonnearaant la the government oi
soma days ago, that ono hundred )tt
esnd dolkrsluid been received froin
Dominion. It will be remembered that
tola money la part of aanm whioh Is to
be expended in New Westminster distriot
on mads and midges, and thepeopli
that locality may now expect to win

and twenty thou-
B jodi-
Is a little lata there is yet time to get
through a groat deal of work before winter.   The people of the distriot should,
however, lose no time in getting the
Govornment to start the work at once so
as to get their roads put into good order
before the snow oome,. The receipt of
this money from Ottawa pats it out of
tha power of the Government to plead
poverty and then la no'Mason'-why they
should not Ht to work on those roads at
one—Standard.
It is by the publication of saoh
absurd statements aa than that the
organs of a defeated (aartyhopeto
stir ap sectional discontent and make
political capital. The sentiments
expressed by the Standard are exactly similar to those of the dppo-
aitiou organ: an the m 'inland. Both,'
are engaged in the very unpatriotio
and unjuatiBable occupation ot Bowing aeada of diaoord wherever they
may take root. Tbe object is, of
course, to embarrass the government
by endeavoring to mislead publio
opinion. And iu this endeavor they
have not hesitated to misrepresent
fact* and draw falae conclusions Rom
premises whioh do not exist When
the Standard suggests that the people of New Westminster distriot
should demand immediate possession
of the $120,000 already received on
the dry-dock refund, it aimply ahowa
itself to be exceedingly ignorant or
criminally dishonest The government never promised that the dock-
money would be ipant in New
Westminster district They pre*
mined! to spend it in permanent improvement* on the mainland, and
when that promise is fulfilled all
other mainland distriot* aa well as
New'Westminster will receive their
full share in the division. The organ can scarcely be ignorant of thia
bet, because it wu plainly stated by
the provincial secretary and Mr.
Orr it the IpeeSng held a short time
ago in thia eity. And the organ
must be extremely ignorant if it
dots not know.that the cabinet hive
no power to expend thia dock-money
without the express sanction of; the
house.* The dock refund is not given
to the cabinet to be spent aa tbey
may aee fit It cornea to the pro-
vincata* part of tnagraeaent which
Wil submitted to the legislature and
accepted by them. The, money goes
into the provinoial treasury, and re-
mains there until the 'house "gives
permission for it* expenditure and
indicates th* precise works upon
whieh it is to be applied. If the
government wished ever so much to
hand over this money immediately
to New Westminster or tb the mainland, they oould not do so without
violating the constitution and their
oath of office. Bat if this money
bad been promised to the district of
New Westminster, and if the. government had power to spend it at
one*, they wonld be, acting' most
foolishly if they were to do so. This
ii shout th* worst season of the
year for road-making. Ths rainy
season may bs said to have slready
set in. Roads made in the winter
months would oost s great deal and
last* very short time. It is the
opinion of ciprr'encsd road makers
that a road constructed iu the spring
or early summer is worth nearly
twice as much ss one made in win.
ter.- It, would' be.a pjeoi •)(- folly,
therefore, if the goveramint were to
act upon th* suggestion ot the Standard in this instance. ., If the whole
1340,000 due on drydockscooiint
is spent on mainland roads, the
means of communication will then
be none 'too good, and we should
positively protest against any portion of that sum 'wing thrown uway
in winter road making even to pleas*
the Standard. The organs can
scarcely be congratulated upon the
mod* of attacking the government
they have cliaaen. They havo been
singularly unfortunate, * and we ure
afraid it might be said with the ut-
BMt propriety that tlii-y deserve no
sympathy on account of their utter
failure to influence publio opinion,
For the Columbian.]
The Sea Shore*
I stood by the shore of theiea,
Aud the galls flew over the Its,
And tar away in the ah;
Aad the ripples ran bright and free,
And the waves laughed loejft in glee,
And the Bon shone eva^vwnere.
And far from my island hsts*e,
The gull, like a fleck of foaai,       '
Sank down on the resaaas seal
While deep beneath, in their domo
Of ainber, the mermaids oorab
.    Their green hair osaselessly.
And thii. white  galls wheeled and
~t whirled,        W
And the SabM tieraaelves uphurlotl
Out of the sea in. their mirth:
For the banner'of love wa* unfurled,
And my soul was at peace with the
'•'..*       world,
.' And all was bright on the earth.

There was a busy scons on .ihe
steamer Coptic, whioh sailed for Yokohama and Hongkong to-day. Tho dock
waa orowdod with Chinamen, meat of
whim war. waiting a chanco to go
aboard, boing °** their way home 'to
China. There were so many of thom,
howev.r, that they were let aboard
only in hatches of 100, when they wore
inspected by the doctor of the ship and
.went through other formalities. Every
man' who presented himself at the
gangway', had, before he waa admitted
on board,' to present a paper given by
tho Six' Companies, certifying that the
bearor was tree from debt, and that
there was no likelihood of his trying
to escape from his creditors. No Chinaman who is in debt to s fellow countryman can easily take passage for
home, as a sharp lookout ia kept for all
such, Once on board the vessel the
Chinamen were divided into two
classes, thosewho had applied for return certificates through the Custom
House, and those who were entitled to
return qnder the provisions pf the Restriction act relating to merchants,
traders, etc. There were many of the
latter class, and all were examined,
their height taken and their namoa,
etc., recorded by Custom Officers detailed for the purpose. Thoy were sont
aft as soon as the necessary formalities
had beeu complied with. Some 10
or 12 of the returning Chinamen
took with them their wives ami children, tha little ones looking bright and
happy, and causing spectators to won-
d.r hew such pretty children could
have suoh homely parents. In the
gangway where the Chinamen for the
ateerage were congregated, a person
who has overran on a Mississippi river
steamboat might imagine himself again
on one of thoae floating wheelbarrow..
This impression would be produced by
the good, forcible Anglo-Saxon oatha
which were to be heard on every aide
-from blue-bloused Chinamen. Their
joy at the prospect of again seeing their
native land seemed to nnd vcnUnvig.
oroiia swearing in English, whioh a
Chinaman is said to enjoy fully aa
much as they do shark'a tins snd rice
brandy. Up to twelve o'clock about
700 Chinamen had been admitted on
board, and fully four hundred more
ware waiting on the dock in the midst
of their baggage, consisting of Saratoga
trunks, tea chests and bandana handkerchiefs containing all their worldly
goods.' It is the largest human load
that, in the opinion of the Custom
House inspectors, has ever gone out of
thia' port. Of the Chinamen who sailed
on. the Coptic, 020 were registered at
the Custom House, the rest belonging
to the class ol merchants, travelers,
etc. Of those registered it is thought
that not more than 160 came from thia
oity. The largest number came from
the mines and other places In the interior of the State; from all parts of
the cout and from all parts of the
East. There were some in transit from
Cuba and other foreign countries.—

"Boys, I.won't drink lessen you
take what Ido/' aaid old Josh Spillit,
in reply to an invitation. He was a
toper of long standing and abundant
capacity, and tha boya looked at him
jn astonishment.
"Thi idea," one of them replied,
"that you ahould prescribe conditions,
is laughable. Perhaps you want to
fore* one of your abominablo mixtures
on us.' You are the chief of the mixed
drinkers, and I won't agree to your
conditions.
'He wants to run us in on castor oil
and brandy," said the judge, who
would willingly havo taken the oil to
get the brandy.
"No, I'm. square," replied Spillit.
"Take my drink and I'm with you."
Tlio boys agreed, and stood along
the bar. Every one turned to Spillit
and regarded him with interest
"Mr. Bartender,'! said Spillit, "give
me a glass of water."
"Wl'at, water!" tho boys exclaimed.
"Yea, water. It's a new drink to
me, I admit, and I expect it's a scarce
article with all of you.   Lemino tell
Jou how I came tq take it: Soveral
ays ago as a pastel of us went fishing,
and #e took a fine chance of whiskey
along, an' had a heep of fun. Long
toward evenin' I gut powerful drunk,
sn' crawled under a tree, an' went to
sleep. The boys drunk up all the
whiskey an'earn, back tn town. They
thought, it;a ipiiid juku 'causethey'd
left tiie out tliar drunk an' told it
around: town with a mighty bluster.
My son got a hold of the report an'
told it at home. Well, I laid under
that tree all night an' when I woke iii
the.mornin' thar set my wife right thar
by mo. . She didn't say a word when I
woke up, but she,,ofter turned her
head away. I got up ail' looked at her.
She atill didn't say nothin', but I
could tee that she was chokin'.
I wish I had authin ter drink," a'l.
'Then she tuck a cup what she
fotoh with her and went down to whar
* epring biled up and dinned.up s cupful 'an fotoh it to mo. Jes as she,wns
hsudin' it ter me, she leaned ovor ter
'hide her eyes an' I seed a tear drap in
the water. I tuck the cup an' drank
the water an'the tear, an'raisin my
hands I vowed that I would nover hnf-
ter drink my wife's tears agiiij that I
besrl     kneisi     i-ttelBiVieV  ilium     f.isa     ilia   1naat
had been djrinkin'tliam for the hit
twenty ymnri, an* tliat I was going to
■top. You hoys know who it vm thnt
left me drunk. You was ell in tin-
tog. Give mo anothor glass of water,

Public Sonares.
At a special meeting, of the oity
council Held Wednesday afternoon
tbe. question of the disposal of a
number of the publio squares in.
thia oity was further discussed. We
believe there ia no difference of
•pinion among citizens with respeot
tb tbe advisability of selling these
•quant. We need the money, and
we do not need' the land. In the
■rent of a bonus being asked to
aid in the construction of a branch
railway connecting thia oity with
the 0. P. S., it il quite probable
the money thna obtained would be
more than sufficient, and there it
no other way in which it could be
raised more conveniently. But in
any event, whether a railway bonua
be required or not, the squares
ahould be sold. New Westminster
is considerably behind the times in
muy "spec's. It ia scarcely creditable that a oity uf auch commercial
importance should be without t city
bell or a park with any attractions.
Many of our streets are unopened,
and others are full of stumps. We
have no system of sewerage, and
our appliances for fire \irotection are
very inferior. It will require many
thousands of dollars to put the city
into sliape, and the, expenditure of
thia money will be a permanent
benefit. We are glad the city council have taken the matter up, and
that the necessary stops will be
taken to assure our title to these
lands and give us the power to dispose of them.
Magistrates' Courts.
In connection with the cases
brought against Mr. Isaac, of Maple
Ridge, for Belling liquor without a
license, certain circumstances were'
brought ont which are worthy of
comment The offense was committed in the municipality of Maple
Ridge, distant about twelve miles
from thia city. Maple Ridge hat
among ita by-laws ont regulating
the liquor traffic, and it was under
tbat by-law the action waB brought.
At firat tight it stoma very absurd
that such a case ahould be brought
to this eity for trial, instead of being
tried Within tbe municipality where
tbe offense waa committed. It will
be remembered tbat Mr. Armstrong,
who tat on the bench as a magistrate when the case came up for
hearing, objected to the jurisdiction
of tbe court, and contended that the
■natter sbould have been brought
before tht magistrates of Maple
Ridge. It mnst be admitted that
Mr. Armstrong's objection had about
it an air of equity, and, under ordinary circumstance, would have been
well taken. He should have known,
however, that the law does not prevent a cast being tried outside tha
municipality where tbe offense waa
committed; and he could scarcely
have been ignorant of the fact that
this particular case could not have
bean brought beforo the magistrates
of Maple Ridge, Mr. Harris ia tht
Only regular magistrate in that
municipality. Mr. Dawson exercises magisterial functions only by
virtu of bis office as reeve. It
Was necessary tbat at least two magistrates should sit en the case, and
these were tht only two within the
municipality. But Mr. Dawson
Wat not competent toait It was
be wbo granted the license to Mr.
Iaaao, and wbo maintained against
air contrary opinion tbat the license
wu good. Moreover, bt wu a wit:
ness in the cue, and could hardly
give evidence before himself. Kit
worth while te remember, also, tbat
Mr. Isaao is a member of the coun-
eU over which Mr. Dawson presides
u neve These facts were surely
sufficient to make it impossible for
Tab. Dawson to ait on tbe oast; and
u Mr. Harris could not sit alone it
became necessary either to take tbe
ean te tome otbtr court or import
another magistrate. But it a magis-
irate bad gone from tbis city to sit
on the cut at Maple Ridge, the
lawyers Would have had to go there
•'.' u Will, and tbe constable and detective. It ia vary doubtful if the coat
of telling all this professions! mtn
i to Maple Ridgo Would not have been
greater than tbe, cost of bringing
wltniw from Maple Ridge to this
eity. Mr. Armtttong't objection bad
flat e-fltt only, of delaying tbe cau
lor * woek and adding very materi.
ally to Ike oost-a result which he
sbould bar* foreseen. Another
future ii tbe plan which seems to
bore bean adopted by Mr. Isaao and
bit family to avoid detection. From
tht evidence given it tttms they
were not in the!habit of taking
money in payment for liquor. When
a cuatomer purchased a bottle he did
not hand the money to the person in
charge, but aimply left it. on .the
counter, and could, not really swear,
whether it went into the till or not.
The precautions taken made detection extremely difficult, and unlesa
the police had resorted to stratagem
it iB quito likely no conviction would
havo been reached at all. For nearly
four months tht eyes of tht constables hava been watching Maple
Ridge.' It was known well enough
that liquor had been obtained frequently at Mr. Isaacs and other
places where no license waa held,
bnt proof of actual sale was exceedingly difficult. The philippic pronounced by Mr. Bole against tha employment of private detectivea is
moat absurd. Asia lawyer, and as
police magistrate, Mr. Bole knows
perfectly well that it ia only by the
'employment bf such agencies that
crime can be detected and punished
in many 'instances, and we are aware
that the sentimenta ht expressed before the court for effect are at variance with his own convictions.
The Age of Nonsense.
The Dominion government wero bound
to build the Island railway, to pay a aum
of aomo three millions ot dollars, or
thereabouts, for compensation for delays
In railway ooDatruetfon and to pay c subsidy of two hundred and fifty thousand
dollars towards dock conatructlon.—Victoria Standard.
..This is another sample of the
nonsense pnt. forward by the
opposition organs, for political
effect. The, obligation of the
Dominion government may have
been much heavier than even the
Standard makes it. We are not
aware of any agreement which
hound them to construct the island
railway, but in consequence of their
breach of faith this province was
undoubtedly entitled to compensation for delays in railway construction. But how docs the Standard
propose to obtain that compensation! If its. party were now in
power, what course would they propose to secure an equitable settlement of the disputes between the
two governments, We might
rather ask, What did they do when
tbey had power! Nothing—certainly nothing, that ever brought
advantage to the' province. Since
1875 the question of compensation
has not advanced one step towards
adjustment, until it was taken up
thia year. Negotiations have been
carried on, undoubtedly, but wt
look-in vain.for practical results.
In the settlement scheme which
received the sanction of the late
house, there was no compensation
asked. In the negotiations which
proceeded it compensation was
asked, but the request did not receive the concurrence of the Dominion government. Since 1875
it has been absolutely refused, and
the federal government have distinctly denied all liability to this
province tn account of delays. Not
only so, bnt the, relations between
tho two governments were anything
but friendly. Now, thero were
only two courses open to our government — either to abandon the
demand for compensation and make
the best terms -they oould for a
settlement of existing disputes, or
to persevere in demanding compensation. By adopting the former
course it might be possible to effect
an adjustment which would relieve
tht province Of the insatiable dry-
dock, throw the public lands open
to settlement, and: secure tbe construction of the island railway. If
the latter course wu adopted, tht
disputs and animosity between the
two governments would still remain; the dry-dock would continue
to absorb our revenues, and the
lands would remain locked up. If
tbis province had continued in an
attitude ot. hostility towards the
Dominion, and insisted .upon compensation, it Ja possible that com'
penution might' tomt time have
been obtained. > But that wu certainly very improbable iind tbe embarrassment and loss involved in
the risk were undoubtedly moat
serious The settlement made by
tbe present government seems to
ub, under all the circumstanott, the
but that could bo done in tha interests of the province. Not only
has it vutly improved our standing with tbe Dominion government,
but it hu removed out of tho way
questions whieh' while they remained were shutting ub out from
progress and development If the
Standard and ita party oan show
us a more advantageous basis of
let element, however, wt aro .quite
prepared to consider it. It it tbe
best interests ot i tht province we
seek, and not the define ot any
particular scheme. Tht Goluiibmh
is free to support any project tbat
will secure tht adjustment of ex.
isting disputes and induct tht federal government to compensate in
for ileleya. But before we give up
the present basis, of stttlement for
another' and a bitter, wt must have
reasonable proof tbat the other ou
-~——mm-m-wmmm-m—
be carried out. After tht experiences taught in history, tho Standard
cannot expect the people of British
Columbia to abandon a substantial
ine in order to pursue what may
uh a very much desirable shadow. Is the organ prepared to formulate its scheme and furnish
proofs of its feasibility t

An Inadvestant Act.—On Thursday morning Mr. H. Lamont, partner

police court on complaint of Constable
Wiggins, charged with having sold
liquor without license on Tuesday.
Mr, McColl appeared for the prosecution and Mr. Ferris for tho defense,
On behalf of bia* client Mr. Ferris entered a plea of guilty. He sate! some
person had told his client that he could
sell liquor to s boarder without taking
a license, and his client had done so
believing it to be lawful.- In consideration' of the circumstances he asked that
the lowest possible penalty might be
imposed! Mr. MoCou sola he Would
be satisfied with s small penalty as it
appeared this wm the first case against
the defendant. The police magistrate
uid he would make the fine $1, but to
this must be added the license fee of
9100. This wu the lowest penalty he
could impose, but he would recommend
the council to remit one half the license
lee under the cirbumstanoes.! Mr.
Lamont paid the $101 into court.
What the Stxambbs Will Do.
The question is almost daily asked,
what will the O. R. and N. Co. do
with all its vessels when the new and
huge steel steamers come out? This
question would be hard to answer
were we to suppose the company intended to confine itself to the three
routes upon whioh its boats aro now
plying, and also wsre wo to suppose
that there is to be no appreciable and
perceptible increue in the population
of the Puget Sound, British Columbia
snd Alaska regions. In that cose no
more boats would bo needed than the
company new have, or not st least,
until some of tho boats it now has ore
worn out or lost. It is not a reasonable supposition, though,, that this
country is going a stop growing, nor is
it sny mors reuonable to suppose that
this great company hu any idea of
limiting Us trade to Victoria, Whatcom. Olyropis, Tacoma, Port Town-
send, Seattle and Laoonner. In fact
it is not to be doubted that on the
shores of Puget Sound alone ten
thouund new people will be living s
year hence,, or rather ten thousand
more than tlio number at. present.
This increase alone will be sufficient to
justify ths putting on of two or throe
more boats like those st present plying in our trade. These new people
will spread out, and ocoupy the whole
country from Olyiupis and Skokumish
to Semiahmoo and Neah Bay, and
besides them several thousand moro
persons will pou through tho Bound
country on thoir way • to the
country north of the 40th parallel.
We look for the putting on the New
Westminster routo of tlie Geo. E,
Starr or North Pacific oarly next year,
to be followed later by other, bouts on
the route to Port Discovery, New
Dun go ii cm, Port. Angolns, and Neah
Bay, snd later by .a third boat up
Hood's canal.— Stattle Post.

From Kootenay.
Kootenay is emerging from the shallow waters of its local bickerings. Tbe
greatness of the small and the littleness of the great will .soon be forgotten. The bright hopes before lis make
us forget of the past what is not worth
remembering. Ill feeling and jealousy
must collapse; high hopes and bright
prospects for the many will exhaust
the eilvy of the few; Tho beautiful
valley of the lakes (I mean the Columbia'lakes) is being populated rapidly,
and it is gratifying to hear the people
talking earnestly of tho cky that is to
spring up there and that is not to be s
city of a day made by tho Canadian
Pacific Railway, but will be backed up
by pastoral and agricultural lands of
superior quality in a superb climate.
Galena aud quartz mineB abound in
this locality. Going from this valley
to the headquarters of Kootenay,
Wild Horse Creek, you might suppose
from the'number of Chinese arriving
that this old, and yet well to do min
ing camp, wu just lately struck.
Chickens are' sold there st $3 per head.
Long u this camp hu been worked
mines are still valuable. Mr. Henry
Rogers, a respectable -miner well
known to me for 18 years, sold his
claim a short time ago for'$6,000, but
at the Kootenay lako mines s 016,000
claim is not considered a %big thing.
Galena ore abounds: in thue mines.
Two claims of this kind were bonded
or conditionally sold very .lately for
920,000. Two practical miners left
here a few days since for San Francisco, Messrs. Flint & Montgomery
(who have .claims here), with the intention of bringing with them next
spring machinery for smelting purposes.—Colonist Cor,

virtually settles a long disputed question, and gives tho. Canadian Pacific

EXTRACTS FROM DR. DAWSON'S EVIDENCE.
- Q. Can you give any information
from your personal knowledge of the
fisheries and other resources of the
Queen Charlotto Islands and cout
generally I—I spent u gootl part of the
summer of 1878 in tho Queen Char
lotte Islands, und tho rosult pf thu.ext
ploriilimiB was the map now upon the
table (Report Geological, Survoy 1878-
70). The Quoon Charlotte Islands
first attracted attention commercially
from the trade in sea-otter skins, whioh
was commenced about the end of the
hut century and carried on very extensively.' The sea-otter is now, however, on tho west coast nearly extinct,
but a considerable number of fur ttealf
are still caught by the Indians on the
Queen Charlotte Islands and west coast
f of Vancouver. Tlie Queen Charlotte
Islands are altogether 175 miles in extreme length. The southern part ia
mountainous, without any flat land
wtirth'mentioning, but the north-eastern part of Graham Island contains
about 700,000 acres of flat land, most
.of which is densely wooded, but most
or all of which I think, will eventually
be brought under cultivation whon the
population of the west cout is larger,
and the dejnand for agricultural wid
greater. The climate is very much
liko that of Vancouver Island, but, on
the west coast; if anything, more humid than that of the west cout of
Vancouver. It is a very mild climate.
In some winters no snow falls. In
others a heavy snowfall occurs, but it
. lies only a few days and disappears.
Quebec, Oct. 23.—Tho Marquis of The mildness of  the climate Is, of
Limitations of Llqnor Selling,
In sn article discussing ths probabilities of tho appearance of the
liquor question u an iuue in national
politics, The American, s Philadelphia
journal of high character, suggests the
following points relating to regulation
of the traffic at retail, vis:
1. The limitation of the number of
places where liquor is sold. These
sre everywhere ih exceu of the natural demand. They exist only by
stimulating the demand. A bar-keeper' is counted successful when he lets,
no msn get out without spending more
money than be meant to when lie went
in. A well furnished bar.is strewed
with tempting provocatives to thirst,
iThe social atmosphere, maintained by
' skilful hints and witty suggestions, is
thst af devotion to drink as a chief
end of existence. To reduce the
number of thue places ft,one for
each thousand or even 500 of tbe population, would be a diminution of tho
temotations to drunkenness for the
majority of those who patronise them,
Their proprietors then could live without solicitation. .
2. A higher charge for licenses is
proposed In many places as a useful
reform. The man who liu paid fifty
dollars s year for his license hss uo
great interest in enforcing tho-license
laws. The utmost ho oan do by looking after his shabby rivsls is to earn
their ill-will by making them pay the
fifty dollars also. But the man who
hu paid s thousand dollars for _
Hcenu will ue to it thst his business
is not shared with people who have
paid nothing, and that it is not forfeited by his neglect to observe the
laws.   In this way, small, ill-regulated
{daces would be swept sway, and
arger and bettor kept establishments
would have "tho monopoly of the
business.
3. Better than merely fixing a higher
charge for licenses would it be to sell
the licenses at auction for a bonus in
addition to the fixed charges, as seats
in ohurchea ure suctioned for a bonus
in addition to .the pew rente. In this
way the state would got the full value
of the privilege it grants, and it would
be determined which of the people
already in tho business should have
leave to continue it. And if the friends
of temperance in nny quarter felt free
to do so, and had the means, they
might buy in some or all of these
licenses and open the shops themselves.
4. Besides paying lor his licanBe,
the proprietor of suoh an establishment
should be required to give ample
security for tho conformity of hio place
to the requiroments uf the law. Uo
should be required to keep intoxicating
drinks Of good 'quality and at reason-
n<)le price, to reruns drinks to peraoiu
already affected by it, to expel dtsnr-.
derly people from his premises, and to
close on such days, and nt such hours
on other days u the law directs. And
tlie forfoituro of the amount of his
license for a whole year, mid thechm-
itjg of his establishment should be (ho
ponslty for any violation of those
mles.

Christian Japan.
It is not on extravagant anticipation
that Japan may become a Christian
nation in seventeen years. .The Christ-
Ian missionaries are now working with
a strong hope that the twentieth century will opon upon that island empire
no longer a foreign mission field, but
predominantly Christian, converted
from tho shadowy paganisms and vogue
philosophies which now retain but a
feeble hold upon the people, and received into the brotherhood of Christendom. A Japanese Constantino Is
not far off.
It is only twenty-four years since
foreigners were allowed to reside in
Jspsn, and tho first missionaries were
sent there. During the next ten years
there were never ten iniuionaries residing in Japan at one time. Eloven
years ago, whon the first native church
wu formed in Yokohama, there were
scarcely a dozen or two converts in the
whole Japanese Empire. During these
eleven years the dozens have grown to
thousands. The Presbyterians havo
sixteen churches and over a thousand
members. Similar reports are made
by the minion boards of the Methodist, Congregational, snd Reformed
Churches. Within the lut four months
hundreds have joined the Churches as
the result of a widespread religious
movement. At a recent Conference of
Churches in Japan the spirit of confidence was remarkablo. The young
men said: "In ten years Tokio may bo
a Christian city/' It was not extravagant with the past ten years in mind.
Tho soberest forecast would expect a
strong, active, not merely self-support-'
ing but missionary aud propagating
Church in Japan by the tnd of thu
century;. while a strong faith would
look for tho evangelization of Japan by
that date.
Will our Churches hore-nt home take
this hope and aim to heart I' This is
not something to be hid awny in letters-
in monthly missionary magazines; it i»
something for us all as laborers together for the progress of Christ's Church
Lo work for. Think what it .w<iultt
moan to have Japan evangelized-iit,
seventeen years! Japan u nn cmpWj
with moro inhabitimls limit Groat
Britain. It staudtt against the coast; of
Asia as England docs ii^nmst the boost'
of Europe,. Already Corea is sending
her sons to China to learn the Christian
faith, and converts sf the highest rank
of culture und position have been
made, und will soon return to evangelize their own land. From Japan
will go forth a mighty influence to convert Asia. Shall we need to say to
tho Churches, Give us men, give us
money, to convert Japan to Christ t
We wish that each of ths American
missionary societies which we havu
mentioned might immediately tie able
to und out ten new missionaries to oc-"'
oupy all the chief centres and be ready,
M'soon is tbey can Require the language, to enter into the rapidly growing work. It is the time for large plans
and our Christian Churches should not
be bookw'ard. Tlio world must become'
Christ's, and it will be done only by
missionary labor.—ChristianO'tiaidmn.

Kbbi-ixu Horses in OoNnmotr. -
Those who keoo horses should, nt least
twice s week, throw in half ii handful
to eaoh horse of ult and ashes. Mix
up the ult and ashes by putting lit
about three parts of salt tn one of
uhes. Horses relish I Ida, and it wilt
keep them healthy-*-tboir bowels open
snd their hair soft snd fine. It will
prevent them from buintr troubled with.
hots, colic, etc. A little ground sulphur mixed with the salt and uhes.
nud given once every two weeks, will
also be beneficial, All domestic sni-
nials will be benefitted by this. They
relish salt—U is a want of the system
—snd it is cruel to withhold it
course, owing to the foot that the Paoifio Gulf Stream strikes the west
const almost exactly at the point when
these Islands lie, so that they receive
the full benefit of the warmth, of its
waters. The immediately valuable resources of the Queen Charlotte Islands,
I Bhould state in the following order:
Timber, fisheries, snd mines. The
timber I have already said something
about. The fisheries are probably
drore important than on most other
parts of the coast—the deep sea fisheries aud tho halibut fishery particularly. It is true that the halibut hu
not been found to be a fish that can be
1 Canned or salted snd exported with
rtarofit;but it is highly probable that
pefore long the experiment will be
tried of freezing these fish in the mode
now so largely adopted elsewhere, and
caking them in that state to the market, when they would command a good
price in Son Francisco or in any part
of the world. The halibut In the
Queen Charlotte Islands, aftd on the
West coast' of Vancouver hu been
really tho food of the cout Indians.
It iB their daily bread and their only
real staple food. They dry it and
keep it for winter consumption. Besides the halibut, there' aro two species of salmon, similar to those oh the
coast of other parts of British Columbia. There hu been also a factory
established of dog-fish oil. The dogfish are very abundant in the Queen
Charlotte Islands. . In the vicinity of
tqe Islands there is more shallow wator. and more extensive banks than on
the most parts of the cout. It would
be important to-have a survey mode of
these winks, which' are probably good
fishing grounds. The cout of British
Columbia is so far- very imperfectly
Survoyed [ topographically, and the
depth of water, except along certain
choun routes, is unknown. There is
o very extensive bank- between Queen
Charlotto Islands and the Mainland
nnd along-the northern edge of the
Islands, and very probably also on the
west cout, though I do not know that
anyone has put a sounding lead overboard there up to tho present day, As
to tho fisheries of tlio cout of the Province generally, of course the salmon
canning industry is most important,
Of late yoars it has assumed very great
dimensions, and probably it is so well
known that it is scaroely worth going
iiito particulars about it. ■ Thero were,
in 1881, twelve canneries in the Provinces snd over 8,600,000 lbs. of fish
was exported. I think there is very
little danger of exhausting tho salmon
in tho British Columbia rivers; at
least, if there wero any prospect of it,
they would be easily restocked. No
effort has beon made in that direction
yet, because thore has been no cause
to do so. I noticed the other day that
in the British Columbia Legislature a
gentleman brought forward the idea of
introducing the oyster—the eastern
oyster—and the lobster, in British Columbian waters. The suggestion has
boon made before, mid is a most excellent one. An oyster occurs ou the
West-const, but it is very small, and js
generally considered inferior to that
found in tho oastern waters. Its occurrence shows tlmt iu all probability
the eastern oyster would thrive well.
The lobster does not occur. Thero
aro any quantity of crabs, whicli tnke
■its placo in regard to tho food they
consume, and there in ovory reason to
believe that, if the lobster,wore b'*bn;
introduced on tho rocky part of tite
northern coiist, it would givo rise to
vory important indiulriea, i-imilu- to
those found: in the Eastern Provincial.

NELLIE'S MEMORIES.
(Continued,)
From a silent musing fit Into whioh
I had fallen, I suddenly roused up to
find Hr. Clive expatiating eloquently
on the beauty of abstract truth, and
defending against Dudley, who was
evidently casting j some slur on its
Totaries. With a sudden intolerable
Impulse, I rushed into the discussion.
"I think I side with Dudley, Mr.
Clive—that truth is more preached
than practiced."
I had been so silent aiid abstracted
all dinner-time, that they aU started
ni; my abrupt mode of speech, and
Mr. Clive inclined his head courteously as he answered:
"Pardon me, Miss Mortimer, if I
presume to disagree with your brother's sweeping assertion concerning
poor fallen humanity, in my opinion
the lie direct is rarer than vou imaging _ gave among school-boys and
cowards."
"It you mean by the lie direct
mere verbal falsehood, perhaps you
are right, Mr, Clivo," I answered
•'yet how many men do you suppose,
righteous, well-meaning men, aot that
lie at one time or other of their lives,
and are judged not by men but by
Heaven? Is not the one sin as great
or greater than the other; the kits of
Judas more heinous than the lio of
Ananias and Sapphirat"
"There you are right; but I do not
think I entirely follow your meaning!"
Was I going too fart for Dudley
was turning red, and Herwald was
pushing the claret-jog towards him,
with a quick nervous gesture, to hide
his embarrassment.
"My meaning is simple enough. In
your argument I think you dwell too
much on truthful speech, and less on
truthful action; to evade, to disguise,
to keep back part, or the whole of a
matter, must bo hurtful to tbe moral
nature as even the lie direct. No one
can so sin with impunity; that which
is told in the ear shall be proclaimed
on the housetops; and to tho man
who seems to be what he is not, be it
m matters great or small, only evil
ean result from it, evil to himself, or
to ethers more innocent of guile than
he."
I felt I had said too much when I
saw Mr. Clive's ashen face, and the
twitching movement of his lips, and I
was certain of it when Herwald, rising hastily, proposed adjournment to
the drawing-room. Bitterly repenting my one great fault, a tendency to
impulsive speech, I went out to the
terrace and paced diaturbedly to and
fro. What'right had I to meddle
with this man's secret life, and to re-
• o&U to his mind the painful images of
the past? and what good had I done
to commence that which I could not
follow out] The more I coolod down,
the more I marveled at the audacity
of my words, and the intolerable but
courageous impulse that impelled me
te speak them; and 'the more I felt
how impossible it would be for me to
look Mr. Clive comfortably in the face
again.
Quick footsteps ringing on the terrace behind me interrupted my remorseful soliloquy, and with a sudden
terror I turned to find myself confronting Mr. Clive.
"Miss Mortimer, can you grant me
the favor of a few minutes' conversation with you? I have something particular to say; may I suggest a turn
or two in the shrubberies, where we
- shall be able to talk more unrestrainedly than here?''
He offered me his arm, which I declined, though at the same time signifying my readiness to accompany
him; indeed, I could do no less, for
though the words were courteous, the
tone, in.which he uttered them was
peremptory in the extreme, and admitted of no denial; but oh, Nellie
Mortimer, if this will not be a lifelong lesson to^ou never to interfere
again in the business of strangers, but
rather, like the Levite, "pass by on
the other side."
We hod entered the shrubberies and
- were threading their narrow winding
paths, crisping the fallen leaves with
our feet, but still my companion
walked silently by my side, with his
white impassive face aud his
proud sensitive mouth still perceptibly
quivering. He seemed to feel it
tremble, and once or twice raised his
hand to steady it, and bit the nether
Up till the blood seemed ready to start;
till suddenly and abruptly he wheeled
round, and fixing his gray eyes piercingly on my face, as if to read. my
every thought, said—
"Miss Mortimer, you addressed me
just now at the dinner-table in words
and tone suggeitive of hidden meaning. I do not say you intended to
convey suoh to my mind, but I am
terribly sensitive, and something in
your manner disturbed mc with a
vague sense of discomfort. I there-
tore* put tho question to you, which I
beg you to answer frankly, was your
speech purely accidental, or was it
—" he paused for a moment and
then went on, "was it designedly and
ungenerously pointed at mo?"
Dead silence, only the rustling of
th* damp crisp leaves, only the chirping good-nights of the birds, only tho
quick beating of my own uneasy heart.
"Mr. Clive," I said, then faltered
and broke down, the last remnant of
courage oozing rapidly away; till on
his repeating his question in a patient
weary way, I took heart of grace and
spoke:   '
"I did apply those words to you,
Mr. Olive, and I own new that they
ware ungenerous and unkind." -
"Indeed! 1 thought truly then;
and may I aik then what interest Miss
Mortimer can possibly take in the
affairs of a perfect stranger, and why
aha should deign to vouchsafe such
wholesome and cutting rebuke?"
His manner had changed, there was
sternness in his voice, sternness and
concentrated bitterness, his brow
blackened, his eyes literally flashed,
the whole man, as it were, stood at
good and gentle throughout? —and
yet I believe there is one; in my heart
of hearts I believe there Is one tool"
He spoko of Milly; alasl who knew
that so well as I? aud then in a moment I seemed to see the weary little
fact, to feel, again my neck wet with
her tears; and hi my remembrance of
her tried to steel myself, though, all
ineffectually, against the man before
me.
You speak of Milly Vaughan, Mr.
^ iked
strangely.
Clive?"
started and looked at me
 have called mo ungenerous
juat now, and have spoken to me
harshly,-you have a right to hear my
defense; let us walk on, and I wiil
tell you, reluctantly and painfully,
what I know, of your unhappy story,
and ot the existence of that miserable
woman who owns your name."
He shuddered all over; and then,
with an effort to keep calm, folded his
hands behind him, aud walked on
beside me.
"I do not ask, I have no right to,
why you, a clergyman and a married
man, aot so as to lead strangers to
wrong and injurious suppositions; but
I will tell you that both my brother
and I considered you and Milly
Vaughan on the eve of an engagement,
and it was my confident and well-
pleased assertion of the samo that incited Herwald to an indignant refutation, and an expose of the whole
sad story; don't blame Herwald, Mr.
Clive, he could do no less—— and
here I stopped, for the evidence of
his blindness and ignorance were beforo me written legibly on his surprised faco.        .   .
"You coupled my name with Miss
Vaughan's; you could not really have
believod that, Miss Mortimer?"
I laid my hand on hia arm in my
earnestness.
'But I did, Mr. Clive; consider the
error you have been led into;
consider how-you aro even now deceiving her aad Arthur Vaughan."
"But she does not think I mean
that?" and he turned so suddenly on
me that hs read my answer in my
face, I, who would not have betrayed
her innocent lore for tho world, read
it with the quickness of one iui
awaking to the truth. I had hit nil
now; ho stopped and breathed hard
like an animal in pain.
' "Is there a curse on me?" he demanded passionately; "is it not enough
that my life is blasted, and must I
be doomed to drag another down? are
you going to tell me she loves me, too?
I who never knew till this moment
that I loved her?"
"Be calm, Mr. Clive, you frighten
me."
"Bid Tantalus be calm, when the
water, of life flowed to his thirsting.
lips and he could not drink of it; bid
tho condemned be calm who have
looked into heaven, yet dare not outer. You may do so as well as tell
me that Milly loves, and bid me be
calm in one breath 1"
I had not told him, but his mind
had grasped the truth.
"Loves me," he continued; "I tell
you I love her, but I never knew it,

his hands and groaned,
"I havo spared you that duty;
Milly knows all."
"No, no, all—Harriette's miserable
existence; the horrible deed—the secret—the shame? all?"
"Yes, hush, for pity's sake," for his
wildneis terrified me; "I want to tell
you what she said, how lovingly and
sweetly Bhe spoke."
"She loves me," he. repeated again,
"she loves me, I feel it," and the worn
desperate face softened and grew radiant, transformed even, reminding
me of how Hubert Olive must have
looked when he first became assured
of Amy's heart; but this mood speed*
ily changed.
"Heaven do so to me, and more
alao, if I would harm one hair of her
innocent head. If I have sinned, it
has heen in ignorance; I knew I worshipped the ground she walked on, I
knew her pretty ways could charm me
in my darkest hours; but dwelling
among the horrible misty images of
the past, I never once thought of
this; and now I have wronged her past
forgiveness!"
I spoke to him soothingly and gently,
I gave hiin Miliy's sweet message oi
Eeace, I prayed him to have pity or
imself; but though he heard me, and
smiled once or twice in a strange uncertain way, he never moved or turned
his eyes from the distance where they
were fixed on Miliy's home just dimly
shadowed forth between the trees.
At last I stopped quite exhausted,
and then the silence seemed to rouse
him.
Tf in her dear love ahe forgives
j I ean never forgive myself,"
Then stretching out his arms with his
eyes full of tears, "Oh, Hilly, darling,
why have I ever looked into your
child's dear eyes; oh, Milly, Milly I"
snd then he broke down.
Looking up I saw Herwald's grave,
kind face, and an instant sense of
comfort came over me. Passing me
without a word, he went up to his
friend and laid a hand upon his shoulder.
"Hubert, Hubert!" but the young
clergyman gave no heed or answer.
"Hubert, come away with me,
come!" and guiding him gently as one
would guide a sick child, he led him
away.
Sick at heart, I retraced my steps to
the house; Dudley, leaning over the
parapet, was watching for me, and we
paced ihe terrace together, till the
twilight deepened into darkness, and
the moon shone out cold and bright;
then Dudley bade me oome in to tea,
ss Herwald had evidently gone down
to the parsonage, nnd would not be
back till late. The little tea-table
looked bright and pretty as ever, but
we were both saddened by the events
of the day, and talked little, and I
was glad when Dudley proposed our
adjourning . to the library and eaoh
taking a book. Dudley read his
steadily, but I only by fits and starts;
overy quarter of an hour I raised my
eyes to the clock and strained my ear
for a distant footstep. It was half*
past eleven when tho door-bell pealed
through the house, and Herwald camr
in' with a tirod face, aiid threw him
self down in his easy-chair.
"What will I. taker he said, ih
answer to Morrison, who still held
the library door; "a cup of Mrs, Arundel's best tea; sueh, Morrison, as will
cure a headache."
"Well, Herwald!" for'he was examining the diamond on his finger,
absently, and with knitted brow; out
looking up and meeting my anxious
glance, he smiled and roused himself.
