The gold mines of Australia continue to be very productive. Somo
of them are more than 2,000 feet in
depth and many will be sunk even
lower that in the near future. This
is contrary to the predictions of old
mining experts, who said many
years ago that no gold would ever
be found in Australia at a depth
greater than a hundred feet.—N. Y.
Tribune.
Mr. Blobbs—"Mariah, hadn't I
better take that hen to market)"
Mariah—"She's about forty years
old, Zeke, and I'm afraid shell spoil

other way of getting rid of her."
"I might give her to the editor in payment of oursubscription." "I paid
that yesterday in last year's turnip's."
"Well, we'll save her for the next
donation party."—Omaha World.
ln one week in July last no less
than $140,000,000 worth of rura|and
tobacco was carried to West and
South Africa from American and
European ports. Thus, one great
crime is being committed against
poor Africa while another is being
suppressed; and bad as is the slave
trade, the rum traffic has greater
sorrows for the despised African.
And who is being enriched by the
rum business? It is not those who
buy; it is only those who sell and
carry. Commerce is not benefited,
because rum prevents production of
that which really enriches commeroe, disabling and destroying the producer.— Chicago News.
Secretary Bayard, it will probably be found, has proposed to England some joint police arrangement
over Alaskan waters for the protection of the seal fisheries. This
would be more sensible than the
"closed sea" theory, which is about
as tenable as the old English theory
about the NorthSea as British dominion and the London Times, in a leader
which reads as if it, were inspired,
proposes a joint jurisdiction as the
cure of all controversy. This will
work well as long as the sealers are
under the American and English
flags, and with England and the
United States united it would not
be diffioult to extend an international jurisdiction over other nations.—

Telegrams froratheprovinoes bring
accounts of weather of almost unprecedented severity for the time of
this year. Snowfalls have taken
place at Bologna, Mantova, Genoa,
Florence, Modena, and elsewhere.
At Torriglia, in Liguria, it fell to a
depth of 30 centimeters. Near Far-
ma telegraphic communications were
interrupted, crops and animals were
injured, and the ohesnut harvest
was seriously damaged. In several
places in that vicinity the snow was
moro than a yard and half deep. A
hurricane at Venice uprooted trees,
blew down chimneys, and caused
the loss of several barks. At Pisa,
houses were partially unroofed, and
the rain seemedtobe nsheot of water.
Several lives were loss on the Lake

A Brooklyn young man with a
modest bank account and bright
prospects, but without the remotest
desire to become a benedict, at least
at present, thinks he met the great
crisis of his life this summer. "I won't
mention any names," he said, "as
1 tell the story simply as a joko on
me. You known I want to have my
fling. I like to take young ladies to
the thraotre and opera and to dancing receptions. I am particularly
fond of having a bright young creature beside me when I take an
afternoon drive. Well, I met a
charming young woman of about
thirty at Saratoga. Her folks were
there. On my third drive with her
we chatted quite afteotionately, nnd
ns we parted in the evening she tenderly said: "Do you care if I tell
my mamma of your affection for met"
I am twenty years old, and if I live
to be eighty I never expect to be
floored as I was when this question
came creeping in my ears. She,
bless her, knew that a man can only
be happy with a charming woman
for his life companion, but I wasn't
quite ready to bo convinced. I
stammered that perhaps it would be
advisable to defer informiug her
niaiiiiiiii until I called again. I left
the springs the next morninig on the
train, and haven't seen my fair
questionrr since."—iVea iork Sun.

Ottawa, Nov. 12.—Montague, Conservative, was elected in Haldimand
to-daybyabout 16.majorto, a phenomenal victory. Haldimand has invariably been Liberal during the lost
60 years.
o'BmEN'n CLOTHES CHANUBD.
Dubiin, Nov. 12.—Wm. O'Brien
wore his own clothes in Tullatnore jail
until lost night. After he had gone to
bed his clothing was removed from the
room and replaced by ordinary prison
garb. O'Brien, upon making tins discovery, refused to dress this morning
and remained in bed all day.
THE CHOWN PRINCE'S OHANOES.
Berlin, Nov. 12.—Dr. Schrosicr
declares bis belief in the existence of a
cancer in the crown prince's throat
and proposes the dangerous but complete extraction by means of tracheotomy. If thia is done he thinks the
Erince may live three or four years.
•r. McKenzie opposes suck an operation as lie fears the patient would succumb to it. He hopes by his method
to prolong life a year and a half. Dr.
Kruuse proposes tracheotomy but he,
oa well as all physicians, are in favor
of postponing all operations until conditions are more favorable. The
NationalZeihtny saya to-day: "The
German specialists on Friday agreed
that the diagnosis which they made
last year was correct, since then the
cancer hss spread."   When the crown
Srince was informed of the nature of
is malady he retired for an hour. At
the end of that time he had decided
not to undergo any operation. He
bears his terrible misfortune in the
bravest possible Bpirit.

Mr. T. C. Borchard, publio school
teacher, Norland, writes: "Daring the
fall of 1881 I was much troubled with
Biliousness and Dyspepsia, and part of
the time was unable to attend to the duties of my professioa. Northrop A Lyman's Vegetablo Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure waa recommended to me, and I
havo much pleasure in stating that I
was entirely cured by using one bottle.

Trade letnras,
Ottawa, Nov. 7.—The trade returns
between Canada and the United Slates
for the fiscal year ending .Tune 30th,
have beon made. The oiports amounted to (59,632,685; the imports to
(34,038,110, or a total of $72,836,387.
The figures in 1836 wero 836,578,7611,
and (*t4,858,03!) respectively, and in
1885, $39,752,734 and 847,150,210.
While tho exports arc about up to the
average of the lost few years, it will
bo seen that there is a considerable
falling off in imports. Ontario, Quebec, Manitoba and other territories
exported goods to the United
Slates amounting lo (31,306.158
and imported to the extent of
(30,828,838. The value of the Maritime provinces exports to tho Btatos

to the states for tho year aro valued at
(1,660,161, and tiio imports (1,278,-
000. Gold nnd silver coin and bullion
were exported to tho states
to tho extent of (1,676,408.
Canada's trado last yoar was 5.57 per

our nearest neighbor, or the fifth highest Groat Britain, Germany, Franco
nud Wost Indies being tho only countries whoso trado oiceoded that of

Gilbert Laird, 8t Margaret's Hopo,
Orkney, Scotland, writes; "I am requested by sevoral friends to ordor nnothor parcel of Dr. Thomas' Kclectric

been tested in sevoral oases of rheumatism, has given relief when doctors'

Lonjion, Nov. 12,—Memben of IU
government admit that tha chanoaa of
of effecting a coalition with Lord Hartington: during the recess, hart not
been increased by recent events, or by
the polioy into which the government
has drifted. In the absence of uy
event, suoh aa Ihe ill-health of Lord
Salisbury, compelling a reconstruction
of the cabinet, or the formation. ot a
new ministry, il iB believed there will
be no change in the attituda of Lord
Hartinrton, who will prefer to await
developments of the Unionists polley.
The Tory leaders know that Lord
Hartington would yield anything bs
regarded as a necessity, and would
join them rather than admit Mr.
Gladstone to power in the present aspect of the Homo Role question.
The little hook recently published
by a workingman, giving an account
of the Church of St. Alban'a, Hclborn,
from the beginning, and ihe various
vicissitudes through which it bas passed, is now being distributed by these
workmen as evidence that Gladstone,
in hia scheme for disestablishment in

of England at heart. Ther book k
dedicated to the Bight Hon. W. K.
Gladstone, M.P., u a slight token of
gratitude for the noble and unsupported defence of tht rights of the
church of England.' There are already a number of ministers of the

not bo passed over lightly.
The news from Afghanistan excites
much uneasiness at the India and foreign offices. Both the position of tha
Ameer and his health have bwoau
much weaker. He is a man of gnat
resolution, but his severity hu alienated powerful tribes, and the succession, in the event of his death by disease or murder, is uncertain, owing to
the fsnoy of his ton and the pretension
and popularity of Ayoub Khan. Luti
Dufferin is powerless to control evtnta
in Afghanistan, and awaits thtir. development, tht probable issue of
which ho is quite unable to forecast for
the information of Lord Salisbury and
Lord Cross, with any approach to oer-
tamty. Events may arise leading to
fears for the security of England's tjk_-
reement with the Russian government,
and to the possible. necessity .for, another advance to Canduhar in case of
the Russian occupation of Herat.
A glance at the telegram * of th*
week shows that the problems which
occupy the statesmen of Europe art
the same to-day at they have bttn for
many months, In France the stability
of the government and perhapa of tht
constitution, is in question. In tht
east it is still doubtful whether the
threatening storn has blown ortr. In
Germany the ill health of the emperor, empress and crown prinoe canst
the gravest anxiety. Tht death of tht
emperor and the crown prince, ud
both seem to be nearing thtir tod,
would bt a great lots to tha Gorman
army as it would leave it without t
rallying figure in ease of war. Both
are the idols of the army and with
either of them at its head, Germany
would have little to fear.
Nothing comet out more clearly
from what is known of the diplomatic
activity of the last twelve montta thu
the change whioh had taken plaet in
the relation of most of the powers of
Great Britain! Every power just now
appears to be anxioua to be on good
terms with England. No one who it
acquainted with the ways of diplomacy
will believe this change uf front on tht
part of the powers is accidental, or that
it is the result of sentimental regard.
The explanation is as simple aa the
state of things it reveals is significant.
The powers have been guaging each
others strength with a view to possible
troubles. The groups into which thty -
fall aro so nearly balanced, that both
tides look around for additional weight
for their own scale, and it hat becomt
evident to both, that England, in
spite of weak points in her military
organization, is able to makt tht beam
point in whiohever direction tht may
take. It it clear, however, that. En- .
glish sympathy and English inttrttta
alike dictate a policy of friendship snd
support lo Germany, Austria and Italy.
The relation of the powers to Great
Britain furnishes the clearest evidenct
iImt tho peace of Europe at prtttnt
rests on uo solid foundation.

Our cotemporary of the Vancouver Xews blows hot and cold on
tho proposal to issue a folder for the
purpose of making public some of
the advantages and resources of tho
city and district of Westminntor.
While admitting that the scheme
may bo productive of much good,
our cotemporary thinks it will be
necessary to exercise very great
caution or else we may find ourselves in possession of a lot of immigrants who are quite unsuited to
the circumstances of the country.
In hia anxiety to preserve the attitude of friendliness without detection our cotemporary gets considerably mixed. For example: "We
consider that the character of the
immigrants who can come here with
advantage to themselves and to the
province are the most desirable olass
of immigrants that can settle in any
country," etc. Our cotemporary is
completely off when he brings forward Kansas and Missouri as instances. To compare these bleak
and  uninviting  regions with this
Srovince   is   a   libel   on   British
olumbia.
Our cotemporary of the Times is
unreasonable. He is now expressing dissatisfaction because the government does not hurry up with the
Oomox election. Mr. Stonhouse
had scarcely got off the seat before
Mr. Humphreys was canvassing tho
constituency, and the Times seems
to bo of opinion that it is the duty
of the government to hurry on the
election with all possible haste so
that the people will have no opportunity of bringing forward any
other candidate with a reasonable
hope of success. "This district is
• large one," says out cotemporary,
and in a few weeks more we will be
in the middle of winter." That
would be dreadful. In winter those
who intend to voto for Mr. Humphreys could not possibly get to the
polls, white rain und storm would
make no difference at all to the government candidate! Or, perhaps,
the Times thinks the government
may be able to distribute sunshine
and warmth among its own supporters, while Mr. Humphreys and
hit friends are shivering in the cold
■hades of opposition! We should
think it is quite proper that the
electors of Oomox should have am-
Ele time to consider the matter they
ave just now in hand, and this is
especially necessary if there is the
slightest danger of a person of Mr.
Humphreys' reputation being able
to secure the seat. If the government had hastened with the issue
ot the writ it is more than likely
the limes would have objected all
the same, and declared that the
election was "being sprang upon the
people, with indecent haste by a
doomed administration who hoped
thereby to snatch a constituency
from the loyal opposition!" If our
cotemporary were to be quite candid we are sure he would admit
tbat this is about the sixe of it.
It seems to be settled definitely
now what the Ohina steamers are
to do for Viotoria. A representative of the Times had an interview
with Oapt. Webber the other day,
and stated that instructions have
been istned to tbe effect thut the
steamers are to be taken to Esquimalt on the inward trip. There the
Victoria passengers are to be landed, together with any freight sent
by exprett for that city. Ordinary
freight, he said, must go to Vancouver and would be lightered to
Victoria. With respect to the mails,
the company had nothing to do
with them beyond mere carriage,
and must deliver them where directed. If the mail for Victoria were
made up separately there would be
no difficulty in having it left off at
Esquimalt. It is probable this will
be done. We are glad to observe a
disposition on the part of the Victoria papers to speak in a less lios
tile way retpeoting the new line of
steamers. Their good sense must
suggest the absurdity of their former attitude, which was both unpatriotic and childish. We have all
along been of opinion that Victoria's
grievance against these steamers
waa not sufficiently serious to justify
the absurd threat of applying the
boycott. The opportunities for extending trade afforded by this new
line are very valuable, and if the
people of Viotoria and the rest of
British Columbia are alive to their
interests and possessed of sufficient
enterprise they will take advantage
of these opportunities and thus ndd
materially to the trade and wealth
of the province. Already large
tkipmentt of flour and lumber, and
sample lots of fruit and other provincial produots have been sent to
the east by thete steamers, and it is
possible auch shipments may be
made a prominent feature of the
trampaefflo trade. We are sorry
that nearly all the flour so far has
been brought from beyond the bouu-
ikrj, but as soon aa our citizens
hare conttruotod a fint-closs flouring mill In this oity we shall be
abb to do this trade ourselves.

In rser-irtuil hi;i former chief with tho

of lilm that "lie hnil found the Whigs

well known era Iho farts that the l'oel-
ites iiilitrinl Iv identified thems.lves
with the Lib, ra! party, and that I'liul-
stono, who was the airiest of them all,
has been lor Iwenry years the recognized
leader of the progressive forces in the
British House of Commons.
Wiihin thorte liist two years a rapture,
tot unlike thnt ctuscil by the secession
of tho Peebles irom the' Tories, liars
taken place among the Liberals, and
one who has-Ireen absent from the
country for a time is met on his return
for 11 brief and friendly visit by the
most Flan ling dimhveries. First of all
he lln,Is tlilit some of those whom he
lornierly kli w nrt the shinncliest supporters of Liberalism, nnd the most devoted pernonni a'imir.rs of Mr. li lad-
stone, are now denouncing him with a
bitterness not Ir&i tlinn that which
I'l.-racli manifestert in liis attack on
Peel, and arc sUiirliast- upholders of a
i o iTiuiit'nt wliotio principal policy in
lre:nrrl is lluit of .the very coercion
whicli for ye.irs tlioy had condemned.
Who, fur example, hns drawn up a
stronger indictment against the government of Ire.and by Kngland on these
tin,s than-John Bright'and yet, in
spite ol lib foliiier friendship with Mr.
(.I.idstone, ho is now one sf Ihe most
pronounced antagonists of his quondam
colleague. Indeed it is probable that
this altitude of Mr. Bright did more
than any oilier single cause to bring
about the deleat ol Gladstone at the
last general election, for multitudes
reasoned that il Sir. Bright, with all his
well-known sympathy for Ireland,
could not support the policy of Gladstone thero must be something wrong
about it, nnd so they either voted with
the 'lories or abstained from voting altogether. They could in aome degree
understand and account forthe attitude
of Argyll, Hartington and others, inasmuch as from traditional position, and
from thoir interests ns landlords, they
might hu led astray, but Mr. Bright was
above nil bucIi reproach, and so but of
regard for him they cither followed him
or stood aloof.
Another surprising thing to ra waa to
find that some of those who had been
specially prominent in religious and
Ih'H'I neiil eiiorts for tho well-being of
v. lint mny moat conveniently be de-
wriihed ns the masses, were ndwranked
among the fiercest opponents of him
whom we have been accustomed lo regard lis the foremost Christian statesman nf his time. lit our view, one of
Iho chief merits of Mr. Gladstone has
been that he bas endeavored to bring
Christian principles to bear on the solution of political problems. More than
ol nny other public nun of this century,
lo go no furtter back, it may be said of
bim that ha hu brought an enlightened
Christian conscience to the settlement
of public questions; and yet in Liverpool at least we lind that aome of the
"bolters" from hia leadership were
among the most earnest and successful laborers in evangeliatio work.
Indeed this if an in a greater or leas
degree all oyer tji# country. Among
Liberal-Unionists, 'aa they are called,
we lind auch Nonconformists aa
t'purgeon, Stoughton, Allon and othen
in Kngland; and Cairns, Calderwood
and men of like standing in Scotland.
We do notsay that anything like a majority ol such men are to be reckoned aa
Liberal-Unionists, but that men of such
cnl,bro shonld btafchoned tmoogthem
at all gives »gr*l«r gravity to the crista
than uinllitftiMon'tblsriideef the ocean
have been accustomed ta suppose belongs to it.
Another perplexing thing to tu ta
tho ijercep'ionot the bfcternese which
Wo Uo not wish to apeak IndlaCTinii-
nnicly, or to indicate that there are no
exceptions to what we are about to aav,
I ut we have rarely heard such inaledic-
tiora poured on tbo head of a man aa
tlioso which have been heaped by
lonner Liberals upon that of Mr. Glad-
store. Londoner! especially, for what
reason does not aeem apparent to us,
aro tierce in their invective. It Is
id'egcd that he half destroyed tlie
liberal party; that he has turned his
lmtrk upon hia former self ;that he has
betrayed hla followen; that he ia •
political trickster, and the like, aa if the
maintenance ol a party were net a

led at (he ttrtellectual ability ol his

refer** tn Mr. titriilstone.
Mifh If in.' Ihe state ot affairs, one ia
tetiiiii.nl tu liik how lt haa como about.
Now it may Iw granted that Mr. Glad-
tb,n i was peiliniie too precipitate in
his i. oveinent in behalf ol Home llule.
eam—mmtetmaaammtmmm—mtammmmmm
He did hot take time to "educate hia
party," It is constantly said, indee',
by Liberal-Unionists, that he should
have proceeded by resolution, as ho di I
in the matter of the disestablishment oi
the Irish Church. But those who thu3
speak seem tacitly to concede tli.it as in
tho cits'j of tlio disestablishment just
mentioned, Home l'rrlrr of some sort i.r
sure to como in the end. It is, therefore, an admission that Mr. Glndstolio
is ahead of bis da.fi Bnt'that is a iiia'rk
of greatness, and if that bo true of hiin,
then no mutter bow lie had procoedod,
some'would havo (allon nway from him.
'1 hen ns to over-haste, it is not to bo forgotten that Mr. Gladstone is now on
tho borders of fourscore. In tho ordinary course of events ho has not ninny
more years to livo and work. What,
therefore, could be more natural to ono
of his temperament and < onvictions,
than that ho should desire to do forthwith that which he clearly foresaw
would require sooner or later to be done
somehow. Tims while the defection ol
some of the members ol his party may
bo easily cxplhnblo on tho ground of
Ilia rapidity ol mrrvrment, that rapidity
isitsell a eliaini'eristic ot tiro man and
a necessity of his lime of life.
But the secession irom the Liberal
party may be du r in somo crises to tho
influence of fashion and success in 1 ifo.
lt happens that not a fow who in curly
days of strngglo wero conspicuous f >r
their exertions in the popular cause,
have become wealthy through pt-osp r-
ity.- Naturally, therefore, they iles.ro
to take their places among thu gentry
of tbe county families. But to thb tlieir
liberalism has heretofore been a barrier.
Yet they could not bring tliemselv. i to
break with their old party only (or that
reason, though for years they had been
in It rather than of it. They bad lost
their enthusiasm in its behalf, and now.
they have gladly embraced the opportunity of alleging so good a pretext as
that whicli the present controversy offers for going over to the ranks of tho
Tories.
Others, again, have been moved by
Cersonal ambition. This seems to havo
een the case especially with such a
man aa Joseph Chamberlain. The
opinion of many of Ihe most conservative, is that throughout—lo uso an
illustration Irom Ihe cricket fiel l-ho
haa been playing olf his own bnt, and
that he hns for the time at least seriously blighted what seemed to be the
fairest prospect of success.
So much for the rupture in tne
Liberal party. But the Tories are not
a happy family any more than tho
Liberals. Many ol them have followed
the present Government with great
misgiving, and we come into contact
with some of them who are just as
dissatisfied with Salisbury aa the
Unionists, so-called, are with Gladstone,
They cannot depend upon their leaders.
They distrust I hem on every hand, regarding them as simply "opportunists"
who are ready to do anything which
may keep them in oflice. Tho Land
bill of this last session ia disliked by
genuine Tories as much as any men!nre
of Mr. Gladstone's ever was, ami the
landlords ere beginning to think that as
far as their interests are concerned,
thero is littlo to choose between Liberal
and Conservative.
When we turn to the future, and ask
what is likely to be the outcome of all
this, we find lt exceedingly difficult to
get an answer. Prophecy is tho most
gratuitous method of running into mis.
take, and we remember the aphorism,
"never prophesy except you know."
Still from the past one limy come tn
some conclusion as to the (ntiire. An I
looking at the present state of things in
irival Britain in that light, we may arrive at one or two conclusions as to the
probabilities.
Things cannot continue as ther ere.
It is impossible that Ireland can' long
be governed by coercion. A sulijec 10:1
which needs to be constantly mmut hied by the sword ol an armed constuh-
nlary is not worth anything when vou
have got it; and Ihe conscience of'the
great Hritish people, irrespective ol all
parly, will not long suffer such a sub-
lection to bo insisted on,
Then, again, tho peoplo of Great
Britain will Boon become restive un Irr
the blockade which Ihe Irish .question
h-is put upon all I 'gislaliou lor Kngland
and Srotland. They will insist upon
some settlement which will allow lli.'in
to look after their own nl'nirs. 1'itlior,
therefore, they will put Mr. Gladstona
once again in power, Hut he may
formulate and carry out those measures
which he and his party shall desire for
tho pacification ol Ireland; or the
Tories will do as they have done before,
ami anticipate and indeed prevent such
a mode ol settlement by Ihauise.ves,
bringing out a Homo ltulo measure
Which will go further than any thin)
Mr. Gladstone would havo proporel.
At any rale, il tlio recent bve-elertioin
aro any nit lion of Iho gcncr.il nrirrl'rii
opinion ol Iho country, It wmiidsoni
.that a reaction is sotting in, mi 1 Ih it in
the event ol another general election
occiiring, tho Liberal-Unionists as a
party wonld be seriously crippled if not
nearly annihilated. All this, of coins .>,
la merely problematical, but strange.-
things than either of those which wo

Constipation
Is a universal and most troublesome disorder. It causes Hcndaoke, Mental De-
preBsion, Impairs the Sight and Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement of the
Liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, and
Piles. Constipation ia speedily cured
by Ayer's Pills.
For a number of months I was
troubled with Costlveuess, in consequence of which I suffered from Loss of
Appetite, Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes ulso troubled mo. I was
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, wan unablo to bear exposure to tho light.   I was entirely
CURED BY USING

hesitation in pronouncing this medicine
to be the best cathartic ever made. —
James Eccles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, con3
sequently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and Piles, fox years. Ayer's Pills, which
I took at the suggestion of a friend, have
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the removal of which has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly im-.
proved my general health.—W. Keeler,

What Phyiioiani Say Aidut thi
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption has for some
time been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and effectual means
of conveying to Diseased Oigans, "Curatives," but ln cases of Kidney Disease and
Complaints attendant thereon, successful
treatment was practicably Impossible until the Introduction of the Starr Kidney
Pad. It costs less than a single prescription and is Immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal
Medicinal dosing. Worn immediately over
tbe seat of Disease, its curative properties
become absorbed by the diseased and enfeebled Organs.continuously and directly,
as required to Insure in return their healthy action and original vigour. It is comfortable to tbe patient and pleasant ln Its
effects, and cures when nothing else can.
The Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A more valuable

Quick Work.
Lost night tho crow of the steamer
Yosemite discharged anil loaded 120
tons of freight in 2 hours and IB minutes. This is an example of the rapidity in which freight can bo handled at
the fresh water terminus. Mving tho
advantage of being practically above
tidal waters vessels can be unloaded
and loaded at Westminster without
taking the tide into consideration, und
the vessels decks being nearly level
with the wharf reduces the labor and
cost of discharging to the lowest possible figure.   '
General Middleton.
Major-General Middleton has returned to Ottawa from Montreal and
denies the statement that he intended
retiring from the command of the Canadian militia, owing to his poriod of
service in the Imperial Army having
expired. The statement, he said, was
unfounded, as the Canadian authorities
were desirous that he should retain
command in Canada and he waa willing
to accede to their wishes. General
Middleton complained that he had not
been  fairly  treated  by the Imperial
authorities.

British Columbia Frail.
Mr. Philip FewBter, one of the recently returned British Columbia excursionists, brought to town a number
of samples of fruit grown in the neighborhood of Victoria. They include
about ten varieties cf eating and cooking apples. Anderson Bros., fruit
merchants of Victoria, sent on the
samples in the expectation of establishing an agency for thoir sale here. The
pears are of very fine quality, und in
flavor much resemble the California
Bartlett's. The apples aro of large
size and very good eating, though
somewhat coarse and less finely flavored than tbe eastern varieties usually
imported here.—Winnipeg Fin Press.
More land Slides.
The train from Vnncouver yesterday
moruing experienced a rather eventful
trip alid was delayed in ctmsequenco
nearly two und a half hours in arriving
here. About half way between Vancouver and Port Moody, a small land
slide was met with which caused the
first delay, a little further up wns another slide and at the cut near Mondy
where the row of piles uro being driven, a large slide had taken place aud u
heap of earth covered tlio track. A
gang of men were at work on this slide
and considering the amount of onrth
to be rornovod, the job was accomplished in a remarkably short space uf timo.
After clearing the big slide, no other
impediment was met with and train
arrived in this eity nt 3:30 o'olock.

risking Heals lost.
In the storm on Friday afternoon
three of Vianen's boats were fishing
oS Plumper's Pass. Tho sous became
so high that the men considered it best
to make for tbe pass for shelter and
while in the act of doing so a heavy
sea came bowling along whioh swamped
one of them. The men in the remaining boats, notwithstanding the groat
danger, put about and gallantly went
to the rescue and wero successful in
saving tho orew, but the boat and fishing gear were lost. Mr. Vianen's loss
is in the neighborhood of 9300, which
will greatly reduce his profits in tho
deep sea catch. Another boat was lust
on Friday by Ihe surveying party under Mr. Geo. Turner, C.E. It broke
loose from tho steamer somewhere on
Howe Sound and was driven ashore
and stove to pieces.

Highwaymen at Work.
It is not every town in tho province
of British Columbia that oan boast of
a real live highwayman of the good old
Turpin sohool, but Westminster can
"no so, honestly and fairly. On Saturday night Mr. S. F. Holt, who lives at
somo distance, below tlie Royal City
Planing mills, was going home, and on
reaching n lonely part of the road was
suddenly confronted by a powerful
looking man who ordered him to
throw up liis hands. As tho mnn was
armed with a long carving knife, Mr.
Holt lost no time in obeying orders,
remarking at tho same time he had
only throe short bits in his pocket:
The highwayman on receipt of this
intelligence looked a little disappointed, and remarked ho "guessad he had
stopped the wrong man," and allowed
Mr. Holt to proceed. As we have
heard of no othor attempt to rob anyone
ou Saturday night, it is likely the man
with tlie knife did not find the person
ho wns looking for. The polios are
working, up the cose audit is quite
probable that they will bring the gentleman of tho vend to account
A Big Waikent It Sltonen.
During Saturday night a washout
Ooo'tfro'd on the C. P. R. at Nicomen
Slouglr which carried away nearly 300
feet of the road-bed lending to tl o
Nicninon bridge. It is rumored nlso
thut tho bridge itself suft'orod but tlio
railway officials dony it. Immediately
on tho nows of tho washout being received at Vancouver, a largo forco of
men, under Asst. Supt. Downio, wero
despatched by a special train and tho
work of filling in is boing proceeded
with na rapidly an men and machinery
ean accomplished it. In consequence
of thia trouble no train from tho cost
arrived either yesterday or to-day, but
it is expected the service will bo restored to-morrow. The stoainor Irving
wont up to Harrison River this morn
ing and will bring down tlio delayed
mails and passengors.
Sal,inlay Night's Slorm.
The second storm predicted by Copt.
Peele came to hand a little too prompt-
ly for comfort on Saturday night.
The rain fell in torrents and tiro wind
blow a hurricane during the whule
night, shaking buildings and threatening some of the most frail with do-
molishment. A number of signs suffered badly, among which was the huge
watch suspended ovor Crake's door.
The tin roofing on the str. Reliance
was rolled up like a sheet of paper, but
no further damage dono to the vcbboI.
The rainfall between 4 o'clock Saturday afternoon nnd 7 o'clook yesterday
morning wss 2.13 inches, whioh is tremendous oven for Westminster. Capt.
Rudlin of the str. Yosemite, reports
that tho storm was so severe on Fri-
afternoon that on reaching Plumper's
Pass he anchored thore until Saturday
morning. Crossing tho gulf yesterday
the sea was very high and delayed the
steamer's progress considerably. Early
yesterday morning a Norwegian barque
went ashore at Esquimalt, togs were
sent to hor assistance, but the amount
of damago was not ascertained. Taken
altogether the storm was one of the
most severe that has visited this vicinity for some length of time.
