London, April 10.—The King of
Dahomey has considerably embarassed
the invalid King of Portugal by Bunding him a consignment of half a dozen
nogru girls, with a message that, tliey
had been selected' From the plumpest
and prettiest damsels in his dominions.
.On reaching Lisbon these nymphs
were attired much after tho fashion of the garden of Eden, but
they have since been decorously
dressed by order of King Louis. They
were first sent to the marine barracks,
where they were kept for a few days
in a carefully guarded wing. But this
arrangement.caused both scandal and
inconvenience, so they were relegated
to a houso in the Botanical Gardens,
where they still remain.

London, April 10.— Mr. JoEoph
Chamberlain wss banquetted hy tho
Dt-vt-nisUiifc oluM,o-m«ht. Xbrd Granville presided and congratulated Mr.
Chamberlain upon tbo result of his
ni's-tion to America. Lord Hartington, Mr. Ohildera and many members
of the House were present. .Mr.
Chamber'ajn, in replying to Lord Gran«
vi'le, sv-dTheiwas glad to see so many
of his old colleagues present from whom

London, April 11.—A despatch from
Berlin said it was Bismarck who began
by taking the public into bis confidence in the controversy with the Empress. He has suddenly ceased all
revelations and nobody knows,
whether in Berlin, Vienna or London,
tho exact state of the dispute. It ia
believed that a sort of truce has been
agreed to, no betrothal between Prince
Alexander aod the Princess Victoria
just now, and no resignation. The
whole business stands over. The Empress does not relent, nor he from his
opposition. Something wilt depend
on Queen Victoria's visit to Berlin.
Should that visit be made the Queen's
influence will be used in behalf of her
daughter and granddaughter.

A DEADLOCK AT   WASHINGTON.
Washington, April 11 — Notwithstanding the all night session, the
deadlock in the house of representatives was this morning still unbroken.
From 2 o'clock until daybreak, the
members of the bouse sat patiently in
their seats, or reclined on mere easy
sofaa in rear of tbe hall. No motions
wore submitted, no points of order
raised, no parliamentary inquiries submitted; the house was in a state of
siege. The advocates of tho secret bill
recognizing their ability to cope with
the parliamentary tactics of their an-
tognists, refrained from any effort to
dispense with further proceedings un-.
der eall of house.
WHEAT    ADVANCING.

H cents.

WmIuhiUj F.YfnUf, April 11. KM.
In our issue of yesterday it was
intimated that the 0. P. H. tians-
Pacilic steamship service wns to be
strengthened by tho addition of
some new vessels. A despatch will
be found in our telegraphic columns
to-day from San Francisco from
which it will bo learned that one of
the objects of this addition is to enlarge the sphoio of the company's
operations on the American Pacific
eoast. The steamships, we beliove,
nre to bo directly under C. P. K.
control, and they are to extend
their trips to San Francisco. This
will mean direct competition with
the steamship lino from San Francisco to China, with a very great
advantage in favor of the Canadian
line. The Parthia, now at Vancouver, goes to San Francisco before returning to Ohina, and when the new
arrangements have been completed
all the C. P. R. steamships will
make the bay city their ultimate
terminal point.
Our readers will remember that
some time ago the government of
Manitoba sent to London an appeal
for dclivorance from the injustice of
the disallowance policy pursued by
the federal authorities. It is now
freely stated that this appeal has
had something to do with the sudden change of policy adopted at Ottawa. Jt will be remembered that
it was at the suggestion of Sir John
Macdonald that Mr. Greenway went
to Ottawir. on the mission which resulted in freeing Manitoba, British
Columbia and the northwest from
the operation of disallowance, and
it is freely hinted that this conference was the result of hints from
Downing street. Regarded from an
independent standpoint it must be
confessed that there might be some
ground for imperial action. The
policy of the government was a dis-
tiuct policy of monopoly, nnd was in
some respects similar to the policy
which a hundred years ago lost half
of this continent to Great Britain.
If it was not .■ definite breach of the
North America Act to pursue such
a policy was ceitninly stretching the
act almost to ihe point of fracture,
and it would be impossible to guess
what embarrassment nii^ht have
arisen if the policy had not been happily discontinued.
For some weeks we have been endeavoring to draw from our Church-
st. cotemporary some of his "unanswerable arguments" in support of
his declaration that the extension of
the 0. P. R. to Vancouver would
injure this city. It is a fruitless
task, however. The organ refuses
to respond. In this morning's issue
our cotemporary meets the very
reasonable request of The Columbian
by the following paragraph: " Our
cotemporary, the I). P. [which, we
believe, is intended to mean the
Daily Fraud] is very anxious that
we should nll'ord him opportunities
for cracking up the 0. P. R. and
Vancouver. We don't feel inclined
to make pegs for him on which to
hang long strings of words intended
to show bis fidelity to both, We
have only one duty, which is to protect this city, already imperilled by
treacherous seeming friends." And
so that seems to be the best the
Guardian can say in defence of its
contention 1 If it is the duty of our
cotemporary to defend the interests
of this city, which, he thinks, are
imperilled by the proposed extension, why does be not defend them 1
Silence is not a defence: it is merely a trick. We conolude, therefore,
that our cotemporary finds himself
unable to advance any argument at
all in support of his opinion.
Our friends across the border are
keeping themselves in a state of
considerable nervous excitement
over the prospects of railway connection. Blaine and Whatcom are
both townsitcs of great promise if
they get a railway, without which it
li not probable they will amount to
anything for many years to come at
least. It is only natural, therefore,
that ths people over there should be
eagerly looking for railway news.
The Whatcom Kmeillt of the 6th
init says: "The Seattle and West
Coast railroad propose to build along
the Nooksack valley and connect
with that road unless a railroad
from Bellingham Bay be first to
(eaoh the Westminster Southern.
It if a race for supremacy between
Seattle and Hellinghrun Bay enterprise. Whatcom must have a railroad soon or be side-tracked by Seattle." The Blaine Journal of the
Sth int. says: " The Seattle, Lake
Shore & Eastern has a map printed
for distribution, but which has not
been seen by the publio, showing
the propoeed line of the West Coast
road from Seattle to Westminster,
and Blaine and Whatcom are both
marlred as being located on the aaid
proposed line. There is also a circular accompanying said map describing the various towns along the
line, and Blaine and Whatcom are
included among the places favorably
mentioned at being located thereon.
A certain gentleman also informs us
that (Iw 0., B. 4 Q. railway company also lately lm iMued a large
wall map which shows the West
Ooait read as running through
Blalh»««dWh»tooin.   Now this is
no supposition, but genuine good
news for Blaine. Our informant
has seen tke map and circular, and
they will soon be issued to the public." Our readers will doubtless
feel an interest in these paragraphs
inasmuch as they all point to con
nection with the 0. P. R. at this
city.    ^^^^^^^^^

Uctnaifai. A WOMAN NOW.
"You won't many me, Ida?"
"No, I thinfc not, I'm quite sure notr,"
adilrril Ida Moray,' after a second or tiro
o( liasrLntion. liny Hardwick looked
earn stlv at her.
"Jut why not?"
"I don't love you," returned the 16-
year old damsel, Willi extreme frankness.
*'ld:i yju aro cruel."
".;», i am not. At least I don't mean
to hu cruel. Oh, Guy! what made you
lull in love with me? We are having
gni-li a nicn time out horo playing champion croquet griinirr nnd netting up tab-
loniix run! charades an I going on picnics.
And now it's all spoiled.
"Ida," slid Guy, passionately, Betting
his teeth together, "you are a mere child.
You Haven t an idea whnt lovo means—
apart from chocolate creams and new
hall dresses," he ad.lorl bitterly. "What
inaile nu fall In love wilh you? Because
1 couldn't help it. An I now you refuse
to givo me back so much ns a heart-throb
in return."
"And I can't help that," retorted Ida,
naively. "Don't look so cross, Guy. You
.frighten me."
1 "iSoi'riirse I am in earnest, Ida, Try to
think of this as a woman should. Try Ior
onco to lift yourself out of the trivial
world that surrounds you, and tell me
(rom the very depths of your heart if yon
do not think you can love me."
Littlo Ida Moray began to cry*
"I don't want to love you," .he sobbed.
"I don't know why I should get married.
I'm very happy as I am. Mamma says
it is time euougbl'or a girl to think of matrimony when she ia twenty-live years
old.   And I am only sixteen."
"There," Interrupted Guy, bitterly,
"that will do. I looked for an ocean of
deep, solemn sweetness in your heart, I
find but a shallow, pool, reflecting back
the shadow of transient events—and
that is all. Good-bye, Ida. Forget that
1 have made a fool of myself—if you
can 1"
And he strode away, biting his lips,
and tearing at his long black mustache as
he went.
Ida looked after him with quivering
Idimples and scared, velvet-blue eyes.
I "1 don't know what ho means," said
■ this little, half-blossoinud bud of woman-
llioo I, to herself. "I'm sorry I have of-
f funded him, but I couldn't help it I"
And she went back to the hotel for her
Ihour of guitar practicing, feeling a littlo
■bewildered and a little regretful, just as
lilui did when her pet greyhound ran
■away from her I
Just at the entrance of the laurel -walk
-a wild, slavan spot that overlooked the
iiluj gleam of the lake, liortensia Carey
[not Mr. Hardwick. A tall, Juno-like
woman of thirty, with soft, swimming,
Iiriuiiial eyes and a face that was a dream
|>f beauty in itself I
I liortensia Carey had come to Silver-
l.'iew lake to get a rich husband. Hor-
I ensia liked the ardent young Southerner
lind she didn't like 'that insignificant
littlo mite of an Ida Moray," and Hor-
[ensia, snugly shielded behind the trees
Itntl bushes, and heard every word of the
Ileclaratlon of love and it's refusal! .-<
I ".Strike while the iron ia hot!" said
I'lortensio, io herself. "There's many a
Iieart caught in tbe rebound and why
fiotOuy Hardwick's?"
\ So she glided forward with upturned
byes shilling softly beneath their long
Dashes.       . 	
"Mr. Hardwick, are you sad.   You
fxik troubled!" Bhe murmerod syinpa-
iiotically.
'Troubled!"   he   echoed,  moodily.
"There's uot much in tbe world but trouble."
I "Aril you say that!" cried Hortensla.
■''Yon! Now, I, who am only a woman,
blight utter it with reason!"
I t.uy looked into her Cleopatra face,
jtrange that he nover before knew how
fjeriiiiii'nl it was. | t.-AtA,_ ■
I "Will you lake my arm down this steep
pill?" said he.   "And tell me what you
nean by those laat words?"
> 1 Iortensia knew how to avail herself of
f io gn'.den tide of opportunity.   Guy
[lurdwick was just in the mood when a
run wants relief from himself. And
Jtio upshot of it was that he invited her
I- go out rowing on the lake after sunset.
I "Don't ask me, if there is any one else
[ou prefer," sighed Hortensla. "I am
■ccustonied to put myself in secondary
position."
" i'here's no one *t|would prefer to you,"
hid Guy, slowly.   "No one, at least
(ow."

'"Not engagedl>> cried Ida Moray,
Iropping her croquet mallet. "Guy Hard-
tick engaged I 1 don't believe a word of
"I saw the ring myself on Hortensla
[iarey's finger," said Mn. Oppenwell.
Ja-lie told me. She's proud of it, and well
Di i may be, for Mr. Hardwick ia by all
fdrls the finest young fellow at tha lake
fins soason. I ain't quit* like Hortensia,
but she hfytstf handsome. They will
take a splendid couple. Quiet Ida;
he are waiting for you to play—tt u your
■urn."
I'And Ida gave her ball a thump with
■he mallet, vitally damaging her partner's
•lay, and not in the least knowing what
Ihe was about.
I She went home and looted into her
[hirror.
"Yes," said she to herself, "I thought
o! I'm only a little insignificant creatine, with pal* cheeks, senseless blua eyas
Ind hair like flax! Miss Hortensla Carey
Tins eyes Ilka black stars and the height ol
Ji queen. She's worth loving—but I
llidn t think Guy would hav* forgotten
■ue so soon."
| And then Ida began to cry'she didn't
ciilte know why.
j "I think I'm tired of SilvervlewUke,"
the said to herself. "I mean to write to
E/ncle Theodore to coma and take ma
lomo. I suppose they'll be married at
ince, and Miss Carey won't return to
Vermont at all. I won't go to tha wed-
[(inc."
j Of course the contemplated nuptials of
Ihe wealthy Southerner and the beauty
U the season made plenty of gossip and
lonsiderable sensation. It found its way
Into the newspapers, no one knew how
■except, perhaps, Miss Hortensla herself).
-Reporters jotted down th* number of
lliss Carey's dresses and jewels, tha pro.
liable number of thousands per annum
jr/hich constituted the bridegroom's In-
oiue-and Hortensia's superb face actu-
My appeared on the front page of ths
Frustrated papers of the day as the Bride
If ths Season.
1 Guy wu indignant enough—bnt Hor-
fensia only latwhed.
■"Never mind, dear Guy," said she.
■People will talk—and, alter all, they
■on't mean any harm."
1 Hut one beautiful summer morning
JrTiaa Carey's ssstat the breakfast table
bras vacant—and scarcely had that fact
[teen observed when some ono cried out:
"Why, General Vincent Is gone, too I"
Undeniably it was awkward for ths
ir'nle-groom elect. Still more so when a
note, sent from the nearest post oillco,
luvo him to understand that the lovely
liortensia had given buck her heart ta
lit general, an ancient suiter of hers, who
la I recently fallen heir to a large fortune
Ii Cuban plantations and Jamaica spice
wools,
i The note was prettily worded: it conveyed sentimental regrets to Mr. Hard
wick that the future they nan contomp-
latcd so sanguinely could never be realized and prayers for pardon in the namo
of love 1
Guy sethis teeth together, but hs
made no comment. He took his fate as
it was dealt out to him! Nay, pnrhnps, in
his inmost heart hu felt some thrills of
relief Hint he was forever separated front
liortensia Carey. For he had some time
since made the discovery that he did not
love her as a man should love tho woman
whom he means lo marry;
He sat thinkin,' of tlioso thing*, his
head rearing on bis, hand, his eyes fixed
with infinite mournfuluess on ih„ far-oil
blue mountain on the further shore of
the lake. As it chanced ho was sitting
on the very spot whero, two months
since, he had met Hortens'a -when the
laurel bushes rustle! softly at his side,
and Ida Moray's melting blue eyes shone
iuto his,
"O.Guy! lam ho ryl Rosorry!"
And she burst out crying,
"Sorry, Ida? Nay, koep your kindly
sympathy for those that need it mor.y'
he answered,somewhat bitterly. "Am 1
not better off, by far, than if sho had
married me? She did not love mo, you
see.   Nobody loves mo!"
"Guy, that Is not true."
"It is pretty well proven!"
She came nearer to him, with burning
cheeks and glitterim* eyes.
"I love you, Guy."
He looked np suddenly—and then let
his eyes fall again.
"Love, little one7 Love? You do not
know the meaning of the word."
She drew back trembling and sobbing.
"You give me my heart back then,
Guy ? You do not care for me ?" she uttered.
"God knows, darling, that you are ths
only person in tho world for whom 1
really ever oared."
"Then won't you let me comfort you
now'.' Won't you let rae take her place ?"
And looking into Ida's eyes, Guy read
the truth.
"When I wooed you before, darling,
you sii I 'no,'" he whispered.
'Hut I have grown Into a woman sine*
then, dearest."
So thoy were married. And, I suppose, 1 might add that they "lived happy
ever afterward." For Love is the key
to all happiness—and Lovo folded his
silver wings above their nuptial altar.
As for Horteusiri, she was rich—and
that waa all she cared for.
PARTED.
"! u, I wouldn't allow it if I were you.
I think it is outrageous!"
'What is outrageous, Fanny?" and
Lucy I lliot rais.nl her calm blue eyes to
her cousin's face.
"Why, the way Unlph Leland is act-
in;*. 1 saw him myself to-day on the
street with May Walters."
"Well, I don't soo anything outrageous
in a R.nt'oman 1 npnenlhg to meet a lady
on t re street and walking with her."
"Happening to meet her!" cried Fanny
Indigiiantlr. "It's very strange howoften
Itnlph Leland happens to meet May
Waitiria ot late. ■lint it's no use of talking to you, Lu, you take everything so
cosy, tine would think you didn't care
whether Kalph Leland was deceiving you
ot not," and Funny flounced out oi the
room.
Not care whether lialp'i was deceiving
her or not I Lucy lllliot looked doan at
llalpli Leland's engagement ring sparkling on her finger, and her calm blur!
eyes seemed to light up suddenly run!
return the sparkle uf the precious ston *.
All! Fanny little dreamod what ltidp'i
Leland was to Lucy. She had given inn
the lirst love of lief heart. No; llalpli
never would deceivo her. She had heard
a great many stories about his attention
to May Walters of late, but sho was
Ralph's promised wife.
Lucy's thoughts ran on in this strain.
Presently some one entered the room
and crossed to where she was sitting.
A band rested gently on her head, and
an airy voice said:
"A penny for your thoughts, my love."
Lucy's cheeks were like two roses as
sho looked up and met the bright, handsome face of her loyer.
"Good evening, Kalph; my thoughts
were of you."
"Then they're not worth a penny,
Lucy," said Kalph, earnestly.
What was it that male Lucy shiver
and the bright pink fade from her fac* ?
"Won't you be seated, Kalph t."
"Not this evening, Lucy. I've made—
I mean, I have some business to attend
to.   I can rouiaiu but s few minutes."
After her lover left her Lucy sat for
some minutes with her arms folded, Burn * into the fire. What terrible feeling
was this which came over her ?
As she rose from her chair her oven
caught a white paper that lay on the
floor. She picked it up. It was a folded
sheet of note paper. A few lines, traced
in a delicate hand, met her view, and
BheHtSdthoininaf-Umee:
"DuVaasT KAi.iferll you lovo me
better thu her, you Will bo with me this
evening, at 8 o'clock. "
May Walt-oh."
Neither moan nor cry escaped Lucy's
white lips as she read thos.* lines, .-lu
stood for a minute as if turned tu st rue;
then, looking up nt the click ou Ilia
mantel, she hastily Wt the room.
It wanted a quartor of 8, ml I n a fow
minutes Lucy had on her hat nud conk,
and was hurrying in the dire, t un ui .'day
iVnltoia'.
A few minutes' brisk welkin,; lir .rigid
her in sight of May's home* an I s ,,ji S'.rs
not a moment too soon. She sroe I Mir!
us she saw her lover npproar i ami run
lightly up tho stcp3 of May's dwelling.
.-lie watched her lover until he .lis rp.
peered within the house; then, tiiriinu
nwav, she slowly retraced her fooUt pi
homeward, with that feeling in her heart
Hint ouly those who hav* loved and lost
'Over know.
It was evening. Lucy Kliiot sat in tire
s'ino roam where but last night she
pariod irom her lover, ,
"Are you hero, Lucy 1"   * *
' It was Kalph Leland who osked ths
question.
" lis," came In Lucy's qnlet tones.
"Ah, Fanny told me I would list I you
hero," and ho crossed over to where- alio
was sitting. "Lucy, I reaivc.1 a letter
lr..in you to-day, and our engage.nent
ring.   What does it mean i
"it means just what lt says, I wnnt
my Ireedom—I give you back yours.".
"But, Lucy, you give no reason ?"
"It is woman's prerogative to ohanno
her mind when she pleases, you know.
I do not.Care to give you nay otm-r
reason," and Lucy laughed linhtiy.
".ind you are sure, Lucy, you won't be
sorry for what you have douo."
",uito sure, Mr. Leland."      ">
Kalph l.elund drew a breath of rcl'u*',

Our very energetic cotemporaiy on

itom wi'Tch appeared in Thk Coixm-

Our Bleepy cotemporary of the Vancouver News endeavors to make a point
against Thk Columhian because it
doubted whether tlio recent vote on
the reciprocity resolutions in the Canadian houso of commons correctly gauged public sentiment, and declared thut
the voici of tho people could bo heard
only at the polls. In tho goneral election which took place over a year ntro
tho N. P, was sustained, nnd our fault
wnter cotemporary thinks this fact
aflfurdB sufficient evidence tbat the nation is opposed to reciprocity or commercial union. Either our cotempor-
aty " deliberated misrepresents the
fuels, or he ha,-, been sadly neglectful
of events which have been transpiring.
At tho.time of tho general election the
question of commercial union or unrestricted trado hud been scarcely discussed at all. and it had practically no
influence in determining tho result.
But for the past twelve months no
public question has received more attention from buth tho public men and
the pre**-.* of Canada nud any person
who lias beeu at all observant of cur
rent even's must know that the pre-
posal for reciprocal trade with thu
United States has met with a most cordial reception. Meetings have been
held throughout a large part of. Canada, nnd with fow exceptions these meetings havo pronounced in favor of the
doctrine; and we venture to believe
that if a vote were now takeu on thii
question, the result would bo yery different from that of Februaiy, 1887.
If our salt water cotemporary would
wake up and keep himself informed of
events that are transpiring beyond his
own dunghill, he might, perhaps, be
able to discuss intelligently Borne of the
questions which are now occupying bo
conspicjoua a placo in the councils 'if
tho nation.

Montreal, April 9.—For tho inst
few weeks large numbers of French
Canadians havo been returning from
the towns of Massachusetts to lower.
Canada. Not only are the bread
winnera returning, but also their families, nnd they are bringing with them
large quantities of their household effects. Bo much su that extra help haa
had to bo put on tho trains to handle
the baggage; Tho veasuu uf this
strange proceeding is stated to be that
many of tho factories had shut down,
as it was considered tbey had sufficient
stook on hand. It is feared by tho
manufacturers that the next presidential election mny bring about changes
in the tariff that they believe will
firore ominous to them if they have
arge stocks on hand, so it has accordingly been decided to cut down. At
leant, that iB the reason given for
throwing those who are now returning
to Canada out of employment.
IIAKINC PLDNOE OF A JJALOONIfiT.
Jackson, Mich'., April 0, ■— Prof,
Hogan made a magnificent leap irom
his baloon hero, nt noon, from a height
of nearly ton thou-innd foet. At thia
elevation tho baloon seemed to stand
still, and by tho aid of n powerful glass
Hugan could bo seen edging over tho
side of tho car. Suddenly the cry
went up, "He's jumped!" and the
crowds craned tlieir neckB to see the
man dash himself to pieoeS. His parachute failed to work at first, aud the
daring aeronaut wns suen diving tu tho
earth with lightning speed. A moment
later the umbrulla-Bhuped life-preserver
opened its broad wings, and Hogan's
rapid descent was checked. From
that point he dropped slowly aud
reached the earth safely about U miles
from this citj". Tho foolhardy man
dropped 500 feet before his parachute
opened.

London, April 10.—To tho house of
commons to night, when thu Inytton
was made to p;iy a salary to Colonel
King-Harman as under secretiiry fur
Ireland, Mr. Justin McCarthy objected to it and moved to adjourn tho debate on motion. Among tbe government benches no nutice was taken of
Mr. McCarthy's objection or motion.
Mr. Thos.* O'Connor then protested
against the manner in which the guv
ernment studiously ignored tlie objection of tho Irish members t<> conceding a salary to an undersecretary.- Sir.
William H- Smith, tho giv. eminent
leader, replied that it was customary^
and that the objections required no
answer. Tho motion for adjournment
was then put and defeated by a vote
of 169 to 104. Tho motion fur allowing a salary was then put to the house.
Mr. O'Connor declared that the Parnellites would oppose it at eveiy shge.
The motion was carried by a vote of
184 to 109. The house ttien went into committeo of tho whole on the budget resulutiouB. , Mr. Gladstone said
bo commended the budget as a' whole,
but tbo subject of new taxation demanded cliHo scrutiny. Mr. Goschen
thanked Mr. Gladstone for hia complimentary criticism, and said, since ho
had upheld the whole budget, he (Mr.
Goschen) trusted that tho house would
accept it.
ANOTtinK ATrACK BY IHE O. !'■ R.
San FiiANOKOO, April 10.—The
Canadian Pacific Railway, it is announoed to-day, has decided to entfr
San Francisco. This now policy will
quite seriously interfere with tho business of tbe overland roads having tlieir
terminus at this poro, and will also cut
quite heavily into the traflio of the
Pacific Coast' Steamship Company's
C..nad*-an lino if it is to mako this port
the terminus of the trans-Pacific steam
era. In order to do this tha steamers
leaving Hong Kong Will touch at Yokohama and Vancouver. Messrs. John
D. Sprocketed Brothers will bo the
local agents of the line, and in return
the Canadian Pacific Railway will not
run an opposition line to Australia and
will also give the California augur refinery a special rate enabling Sprockels
to shut the American refineries out of
the northern markets. An active competition will be entered into with the
Pacific Mail and Occidental and Oriental Steamship Companies, mid the
outgoing freights on flour and the incoming rates on tea and sdk will be reduced and in addition Chinamen will
be carried for less than the $50 now
oharged by tlioso two lines. A similar
line of policy will be pursued in regard
to cistern freights and local agents
will scale down tho rates of tho Northern Pacific, Iho Central Pacitic and
other American linos. TIih PucitU'
Coast Stu*ini.-hi(i Company will alto hi
heavy hfl-rs, H?retofui*o ihey ha.ij
rontrollod the trade between this p.*,c
and British Columbia, and till thoUan-
adian Pacitio freight ha&tyttj} phiuped
to aud fro by these steamors. Under
tho new arrangement the Pacific Cuaat
Steamship Company will carry no
oiiBtem freight and will hare a c>un-
peliiig line for the inn thorn const I r-idc.
Should the buniness warrant it, two ur
threo small steamers will tie placid on
the route by the Canadian Pacific Hail-
way Company in addition to its China
steamers. The freight on these stc-uu-
ei'B will bo divided so that all cast
bound freight can be discharged at
Vancouvor. At that port all merchan-j
dise shipped at the east for Shu Fran
ciBco will be t.ikmi on board ana
brought hero. Going buck tin cist
bound freight will be 1-uided at Vancouver, and in iti place the venBel will
take on board the Ofil'Hess froig.it collected thero. Owing to tho faet thai
tho new lino is not amoudabb) to the
laws of the United States uud is net
undor the jurisdiction of tho Interstate
Commerco Commission it promises to
cut heavily into the old uetubliahcd
lines.
Mothers!
Castoria is recommended by physicians
for children teething. It ia a purely vegetable preparation, its ingredients are
published around each bottle.     It  ia
pleasant to the taste and absolutely harmless.   It relieves constipation, regulates
the bowels, quiets pain, wires diarrhrea
and wind colic, allays fevorlshness, des-
. troys worms, and prevents convulsions,
! spothes tho child nnd gives it refreshing
and natural sleep.   Castoria is the child-
reus' panacea—the mothers* friend.    05
