The following communication has
been cent us for publication by Mr.
W. II. Whitney, of La Connor, W.
T., and will doubtless prove inter-
esting to our readers in the country
who hnve herds of cattle. Mr. Whitney was the first to introduce the
cWiorning plan into Washington
Territory. He says: "As many of
your readers may not have thought
much about the matter I would like
to call their attention to what appears to me is pf some importance.
'F.veryotie" wBo'dtJs hsd aA-fthing of
a herd of cattle to attend to or drive
must have taken some notice of the
nature of horned cattle. I recollect
as long ago as I can remember any.
thing, when my folks used to feed
their cuttle in a barnyard, that, as
the feeder storted from the barn
with a forkful of hay,. the "boss"
cow would start as soon as he came
in sight, and woe to the cow that
came within reach of that hay until
she had tasted of every pile which
the feeder dropped. The second
boss would follow suit, and so on
until every cow in the yard had
made a grab at and run over every
pile of hay. The weak cows of the
herd generally carried marks on
their sides mado by the horns of the
stronger. Abortions caused by the
vicious thrusts of the horns were
numerous. 1 did not know then,
and the older people did not seem
to know, whnt was the reason that
the cows should lose their calves.
Looking back witlimy present knowledge and experience I can readily
understand how it came about. To
produce aboi .ion, it is not necessary
that the horns of the vicious animal
in an hour from the goring she received than the wholo CO head suffered from the loss ml tlieir hornB.
They only shrank a little in tlieir
milk for one or two niilkings and
did not lose a feed. Tho owner of
that herd would not trade it for
atiother lieurd equally as i»ood in
every respect with their horns on,
with the condition attached that he
should allow them to remain so, for
$1,000 to boot. The de-horning
should be dono when tho weather
is cool enough co that there is no
danger from flies'—say from November 1 to March 15 in this climate."

GOV 9'HElIt DEMANDS.
Pt'ivjcuco; Feb. 29.—It waalesrnod
to-day that ao far the employees of the
Pittsburg. Fort Wayne and Chicago
division of the Pennsylvania Railway
system, is concerned, the company haa
answered the demand of conductors
Hnd brukonrcn for an advance in wages
and other ciluceasions as follows: On
subdivision A, Pittsburg to Alliance,
Ohio, and the changes made on subdivision B, Alliance to Crestline, 10
cents additional on ench trip; subdivision C, Crestline to Fort Wayne, 20
ccnir on each trip; subdivision D,
Fort Wayne to Chicago, 25 cents on
ccii (rip. On the last named sub.-
division lucul conductors will receive
an advance of 40 cents on euch trip.
On all subdivisions conductors and
jrakemon will be allowed 23 cents and
io cent! respectively, per hour for
overlime. The member of the conference committee giving the above in-
fortiKtron sinterr that nearly all tho
other   concessions   demanded   were
granted. Engineers and iiremen on
shall be sharp enough to penetrate this division have not yet received an
the side of the cow, as   the   contu-   nn"wer to "le,'r demands.
sion of even a blunt horn, or one
with a knob on, will frequently have
that effect, even though the thrust
may not show any outward signs of
i h.iUl.,..   li.„r,;„ ,,.„.,, a   P--.--; introduced lo the house last night, em-
thoirijury.Dur.tig   ie*&iiV««i.7 ■    th„       k     „ ^ dl'.ore.
I wanted in the milking and care   ,-„„_ ,„ y„ „ vote of the tous0 by „
of about lifty head of cattle, and a
short recital of my experience wi'l
illustrate what I wish tp impress
upon your readers. Before we de
horned tho cows two wero killed
outright, ond several abortions caused, with consequent damage to their
usefulness for a long period. In
putting tbe cows into the stable
each one had to be followed in and
fastened in her plaoe to keep her
from hooking the ones already in,
or, if none were in ahead of her, to
keep her irom fighting others out as
tbey came in. In turning them out
if all were turned loose at once a
boss might blockade tbe door and
stop tho whole lot, and that boss
will not move on until she gets
ready, although the driver may yell
himself hoarse. If, too, thoy were
being driven along a lane, tho boss
was sure to get in the lend,, anil
when she ohose to stop the whole
band stopped, as none of them dared
to pns3 her. One day we decided
to de-horn then. We went to work
and took the horns oil' sixty head;
and, presto! the wholo number to fill
each stablo could be driven in nt
once, and then wo , ould go in and
lind overy cow in hrr place, ready
to be fastened. On turning them
out, the who'e string could be loosened ut onr e and go out like n flock
of cheep, nil in a huddle; should ouo
skip in the door, the rest would pass
by her without fear. In watering
them, as many will drink at onco as
ibcre is room for their beads in the
length of tho UwHi, Tho question
has been asked, "Wbv not breed
mullics?"   There are soveral reasons:
(1) The process is too slow. Of the
millions of cattle i i the world at
presont only a cmp'l portion of thorn
a e tnullii'i. As a o'ass they arc
not so desirable for oither their but-
tr, milk or beef as some other kinds.
(2) Shonld everybody want natural
uur1 lies at once tbe price would be
so enhanced that it wouUl be impossible for people with small means
to got them. (5) Tho samo result,
willi a much prettier shaped head,
can be attained by the ever ready
process of dehorning. (4) In ono
yen, or one month, for that matter,
the millions of cattle now with
horns on can be converted into ns
ni. o mullics as a man need look nt.
Another very important reason why
onltle should bo dc-horned is the
danger to human beings from llie
horns. Evory littlo whi'o I pick up
ri paper in which is un account of
sonic person being killed or badly
injured by a vicious bull or cow,
nud I have known of sevoral cases
myself; one at least not long ago in
this country, Taking the horns off
seems to change tho whole nature of
thn animal, While the stump is
hen'ing it is so sore Unit til*!)* only
hurt themselves, whioh they soon
liiiini better than to do, and liy tlio
time they got well they have lost all
disposition to push. Bo thoy suOirr
by the process! A little, no' doubt,
but I have known one to sufl'or more

Loudon, Feb. 20.- ln the house of
commons to-day Mr. firadlaugh (Lib-
e.-J) spoke on the new rule which was
simple rising of the members. Ho said
thrt this rule was graver I ban the
Oybcw, because it affected the rights of
t'ne elcc'orate to know how the members vot-d. Tho Right Bon. H. 0. E.

O.riWA, Feb. 20.—The house of

for.u.rl and routine matters. A rather
lively debate occurred on Mr. Wallaces motion for a comirittee of in
qu:ry into the *' combines" in Canada.
') I'eo'iiTnr'ition tor k occasion to make
an attack ou pr.'ectinn, and contended
that that the only way to abolish com-
briu;ionswas to establish free trade,
the members on the government main-
tui.iiirg that the quostiirn of duties was
not involved. The motion [nr a committee passed. Thero was also some
dis. ussion on a question by Mr. Mc-
Mutleu regarding the charm's by the
Dominion linrl ar/ents for information
to settlers, and tha Hon. Thos. Whito
said he would make an inquiry into the
specific caso referred to. Mr. Baker is
in CMiiiinunicitioii with tho government concerning tho withdrawal of the
mail subsidy to tho line nf steamships
butWT'Cti Victoria and Sim Francisco.
Be says tlmt ihn people of British Columbia object to the oanoellatlon of iho
subsidy, as thoy viow it more iu llio
light of a subvention in tho interests nf
trade and commerce, and mrt sir much
as a map subsidy. Tire arbitrators in
the can rrf the Canadian Pruritic Railway Company vs. tho Dominion, arising out of the construction of the western section of tho Canadian Pacific
Railway will leave for British Columbia on Thursday to inspect the r.cc-

Ottawa, Mar. 1.—The committees
met this morning and elected their
chairmen as follows: Public accounts,
Rykert; banking and commerce, Hall
(Sherbrooke);agrioulture, Peter White;
expiring laws, Royal; railways, Sir
Hector Lingevin. Hon. T. White
was asked if tho government had considered the monopoly question, and
what would probably bo done with reference to it. He replied thut the
qucst'on bad occasioned considerable
attention of the cabinet, but so far he
was unable lo soy what policy would
be adopted.
An unknown man was run over in
the Canada Atlantic railway yard last
night.   He was cut to pieces.
Tho opposiiion has come to a tacit
agreement not to press the fisheries
quc3t'on until it is seen what the U.S.

WrsenOE, Mar. 1.—A most determined case of suicide, in which was
displayed a moat filed resolution to
end life, took place on the Windsor
Bide of the Detroit river yesterday in
the presence of 200 awe stricken spectators. Nathan Mnrlatt, a grain com-
mission meichant of Ridgetown. who
has been in Windsor for tbe past three
mouths on a prolonged spree, walked
down In the edve of the Grand Trunk
railroad dock and in plain sight of the
ferry boat load of passengers jumped
into the river. Half a do/aw people
rushed to his assistance and pushed a
plank to him. He seined the edge of
ihe plank and held on a moment while
a man slid down a board and passed
a rope over his shoulders. Tne man
climbed back and Msrlett, holding the
plank with one hand, with the" other
threw the rope off his shoulders, theo
he waved one hand to the crowd and
lettinrj go the plunk threw his arms up
and disappeared beneath the surface.
He left no letters or anything to explain. - '*.'''•

Losoos, March 1.—The tories are
wildly jubilant over Ihe result of the
Deptford election, aud the liberals at
thut place are correspondintily depressed, but in consideration of all the
circumslunces it wes mrt such a stupendous violory after all. At the last
election Mr. Evelyn (conservative),
who recently resigned his seat in parliament, in disgust with Ihe Irish policy of his party, was returnod by a
majority of 027 in n total of 0,737,
while Mr. Darling, his successor, it
returned by a majority of only 276 in
a poll of 8.14*5. tif the increase of 1078
in the total voto of the constituency
since the late election. 1020 went to
tho liberals.
T"E CHEAT lrAlCI'.OAD Sl'HIEE.
Ci'i ai o, March 1.—It was learned
this morning that the conference between President Perkins and Chief
Arthur last night was brought about
by Editor Detwi'er, of the Knights of
Labor, who has beeu using all his influence to promote an amicable adjustment of the trouble. Chief Arthur
positively refused to show himself to
a reporter this morning, but Mr. Dot-
wilor volunteered the information that
" Both Arthur and Perkins had a better opinion o? ench othor than they
had before last night." Later Ohief
Sargent said: "Tho conference
amounted to nothing, and it may be
stated positively that it will not be renewed unless an official request to that
eTcoir r-oincs from the road. There are
no new features in the strike this
morning. Tho batch of new hands
i bat arrived from the east last night
wero taken to the company's office early
thia morning and are lieing put through
a rigorous examination. Suburban
trains nre running about the same as
yosierdry." Manager Stone was down
town at 7:'0 this morning and said:
" Everything looks oncouraging for us.
We have all our pa.senscr trains ran-
i'i"« now and will send some freight
(.-. is".r'lie Illinois division to-day.
I wi'l im, s y where, but we will do so
wherever it is desirable. Three hundred men oaitto ill this morning, mostly ii'irrii the oust, and some aro Reading men. No, they hnvo not all agreed
to work, but thoy have not passed
their uaomiinuii ns. All I know is that
Mr. Arthur called on Mr. Perkins last
evening, nnd they hnd a conference, but I bave not seen Mr.
Perkins this morning. Mr. Arthur
called of his own accord. One of the
largest freight engines on the Burlington system this morning pulled out the
lnr;est freight train that ever passed
over tlio road. The train was made

loaded to the top with lumber.
I'T'lTiQNlSi,  F,)K roCliniR's   RELEASE.
Albany, Mar. 1.—A lurgo and influential deput .tion waited on Gov.
Hill nt the capil.il, presenting a pe*
litiirn far the release of Jules Fuehrer
from Sing Sing. Fuehrer is the young
German apothecary whose esoupe from
prison and recapture excited so much
sympathy and interest lately in Kew
York city. The petition was based on
the fact of Fuehrer's reformed life
since his escape. R. D. McGibbon,
an attorney of Montreal, addressed the
governor In support of tho petition,
and speeches wero also mnde by Touro
llnhortraii, president of American
Bank Note Co., and others. The pe-
tit Ion bora some of the best names in
Now York. The govornor is expected
to grant the prayer of the petition. Snilii f ritish Columbian
Itiuisilny Kvcnlns, .llalirli 1, ISSS.
Our friend of the Vnncouver Herald has been rending tho fisheries
treaty a second time, and conies to
the conclusion that his first impressions were not correct, and that the
trepty is.practically what the Columbia*.! claiired it to be, a surrender
of Canada's iisiiery rights without
any valuable consideration. The
Coh.ii I now seems to bo the only
newspaper iu Bri.i&h Columbia
stupid enough to say that the treaty
is a fair adjustment of the fisheries
dispute. We are somewhat curious
to know the nrgtrhierils upon which
it hopes to maintain such ti singular
position.
On the other sitlu of tbo inoun
tains gophers nro becoming almost
as much of a pest as rabbits
haze been in Australia, oi'tl var'jus
schemes have bee.i p opo ed for
thoir extermination. A writer in
the Calgary IVk-.e conies forward
with the suggestion thot potted
gopher might be regarded ns a real
luxury, and thinks some enterprising
company inightgoplier.thene'sts and
put them up in tins like V.. itish
Columbia salmon. If llrese creatures tin: of rrtiy commercial value the
suggestion is a sensible one, but we
dodl.it if polled gopher will ever
very seriously tickle tbe Canadian
palate. liicy might find favor,
however, among the Chinese, who
have a ve.nai'kable habit of consuming such doubtful dishes.
Ha.ingrere.'ied the amendment
to the raunio'.-w'i ies act passed last
session permiliing nny two magistrates to issue ri liquor license in a
municipality through which ami1 way
passes, with tlie consent of the railway managers, the house will very
soon bo called upon to consider certain resolutions affecting the liquor
traffic. At tho present writing we
are not nwnro of the character of
these resolutions, but as they are to
be introduced *>y Hon. Ml*. Robson,
who is known to be favorable to
temperance reform, we presume they
are intended to restrict the evils of
the traffic, it is quite possible they
may bo founded on the petitions
lately sent to the heuse asking that
all bars be closed during Sunday.
We believe there is a lousidernble
majority of the people in favor of
such a regulation. It was urged by
many persons against the Sunday
by-law passed in this city that it
would not accomplish the object
aimed at, because liquor might be
sold in places adjacent to the city
limits: and many of these persons
stated that they were in favor of a
provincial low requiring tho closing
of all burs on Sunday. After tho
action of the house in i epealing the
"■ disgraceful amendment tr eked on to
the niPllicipalities act lust year, there
may be some hope Oi its dealing
with the liquor question on a spirit
of reform. If it will grant tho
prajer of the petitions presented,
and require the closing of all bars'on
Sunday, it will be taking a very
important step in sympathy with
the spirit of the age; and wi"
make a regulation that will please a
very large number of electors, while
it will injure no publio interest.
A great many of the people coin
ing to this province nre finding that
they cannot obtain such employment
as they sought for, nnd some of them
are finding fault with tbe country
because of tlieir failure. There nro
hundreds of men looking for situations as clerks in stores ont' offices,
whereas theie is very little demand
for such he'i. There ri'e nlso not a
few looking for good 'ami wh'i
they hope to ob am rrt t'ro government rate of %1 an acre. Wo neetl
not say that such laiid is scarcer
than tweniy-tlol'ir" pieios. There
are consider a olir i .ets of good land
open to pre-emption bin., ii. is mostly
situated where it ccunot '.re retched
without much difficulty nt present.
Very little good land within ehsy
ic.tch of 1 lie Market remains unappropriated; and such hind in tho
. hands of private persons cannot be
hod at anything like .?! nn acre, it
will cost in some cases as hy i its
$50, and at that price some of it
will give a very satisfactory return
for the money invested in it. T! o
sort of people most wtinteu in this
counlry are those who bring with
them a reasonable amount of capital.
and who propose to engage in so.-.re
enterprise that will develop our re-
.sources. People who expect toon-
gage successfully in farming must
have enough to start with, und to
carry them over tho first year. With
a moderate capital, backed up with
eommon  sense and   industry, any
Eirson may do well on a farm in
ritish Columbia. Persons coming
to this country expecting to find in
easy situation with fat salary awaiting them are on tliB wrong (nicl:.
We hare nothing of the sort iu this
country. From the flush times of
1850 to the present duy it has been
the r.de here that a man who woi'hl
not work need not expect to oat.
We hnvo no room here for drones,
and thore who are afraid of physical
or mental exercise. Onr millionaires
are men who have roughed it wliun
roughing it was necessary, and who
bv hard work end energy have laid
the foundations of their own fortunes. A_man who comos to Ibis
country need not expect success un
less he is willing to turn his hand to
any employment that may offer. If
he cannot find the kind of work lie
likes, be must bo content to take
what lie does not liko until something better presents itself..

Among tho most inncccssilrlo parts of
the wor.d is tiro region iu the northern
portion oi this continent along the lower
tonise of the MiKcimo Kiver. For six
mouths in- tho year, amid the ice and
snow of Ihe long winter, it is impossible
to reach this region at all, and at tlio
roost Invoralile periods it takes threo
months' bard travelling Irom Winnipeg
to gam tlie most northern wbito stations.
lu this bleak corner ot tho earth live
nbout twenty white men. A few of
them are married, and have their wives
with them. They livo further north
than any other white men on this con-
, tiuent. They aro missionaries of tho
Knglish Kprstopal aud Hoiuan Catholic
Churches, and some ot tliem, like Ihshop

a Government iwpcetor. "Tire (iovcrii-
inont maintains a s[>ecial service, in
which there are about 75 men employed
to ferret out all thefts and robberies in
the mall service. All lost packages nr

several divisions or the Inspection service, and. they begin tlieir seatc[i tor Uio
lost matter at the place it cirturvl Iho
ninila. u- ttnusunl number oi i rso s of
the last year is due to the faet lhat tlu
Western blatca, whero the star route is
numerous, is infested with gangs of amateur robbers. Ixrss- s of parkugea ami
letters are much 1cm freqant in tlie Knst,
because they aro limited there to tho
theft committed by the employes in the
mail service. Cut in tbe Weet there is
scarcely a day that romo carrier on tho
star route is not held np-that is, tho
mail pouch ia rifled and tho currier re-
ports that be was overpowered. Fre-
qiieully, no doubt, the ritlirrg Is done by
the camera, but it is di.licuit for an
iin-pei tor to mako cos s.on them. About
two thirds of the mail lost in the West is
loat through robberies on tne star routed

are captured. It is not for the pursuit of
thoso caS'S, bnt to prevent the employes

Poet Offices escaping with a registered
letter now and then, that tbo inspectors
ore most valuable. A mail clerk cannot
prey on Ihe mails long without tang

much more difficult rimn the people gen*

very systematically. The no-i nobibla
robbery of recent yearn was that rrf a registered pouch dispatched from luu Now

hundred girls alter returning from the.
picnic, or forfeit hall his wealth one

Wben, in consequence of ago and disease, the hair becomes weak, thin, and

it, restore its original color, promote its
rapid and vigorous growth, and impart

I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for a
long time, and am convinced of its
value. Wben I was 17 years of age my
hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
tbe good effects it produced. It not
only restored tho color to my hair, but
so stimulated its growth, tbat I nave
now more hair than ever before.—

FACTS:—
The Recumy offered to policy holders ia
unsurpnugflri by any Company doing busl-
iicsn in Canada,
It hait no schemes of Insurance, bul the
well-eKtiibllshed lines, hence the policy
holders cannot he misted ns to tlieir cou-
iraittf.

Its position irsiiseertniiieil minually from
ii 'b'liilled vnittatioo in tvhluh every item
of liiiblliiy is included.
Its progress has been unexampled In
Ihe lilstory of Insurance In Cnnada.
Itapotloicsarn indisputable after lhr«c
years, and nou-forfeftiuile after two years'
existence,
Its profits ar" distributed upon an eipilt-
n Me basis. The profits to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to gtvc
larger protlts to any other class, whieh
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bouus plan of distribution.

telephone line to Vancouver went
down nlso. The San Franoisco lino
went down between this city and

ei\ A good programme, com* ist ing of
songs, readings <tnd roottutions was
rendered, ttud enjoyed by all. After
the concert an adjournment was made
to the busempnt, where the ladies had
a magnificent RBJortment of pies
spread over the tables, which, however, disappeared before the healthy
nnpeticei of the young men presont
were satisfied. It ia rumored tbat two of
the y-buinggentlemen preceht were most
agreeably remmded of tho privilege
given to the young ladies by leap year
but it docs not speak very highly for
their courage or gallantry in allowing
