A Tientsin coiTespondent of tlie
North 0/iina Daily News mentions
reports which from time to time
come in regnrdin;; the gold fields of
Northern Manchuria nnd in the
valley of the Amoor river on Ohinese territory. Experienced Russian
miners, who have worked in the diggings of the OM, lonn and Yenesoi,
say t(ie Chinese field is of exceptional richness unci even superior to thnt
of the Lena. That is a very flat-
ering comparison. Tho principal
proprietor of tho Lena gold mines,
who lives in groat state at Kiachta,
is computed to be worth about $40,
000,000 in actual accumulations, besides the value of his mines. Last
year his mines produced 28,000
pounds, avoirdupois, of gold, worth
in the neighborhood of $6,000,000;
more than one-third of the total output of California, from these facts
tlio importance of the Chinese gold
fields may be estimated, if tho opinion of Russian experts is worth anything. It does not follow that this
region will vie in production with
the Siberian mines, if worked by
Chinese methods. The Lena mines
nro operated in tho most scientific
and systematio manner. The Chinese plan is just the reverse. When
a mine is opened the official in
charge puts all his relatives and
friends in places of trust. The foreign engineer or superintendent, if
one is employed, is thwarted in
overy ell'ort to conduct matters on a
business-like basis, and is soon crowded out by the native cormorants,
who proceed to exploit the property
for their own advantage. They can
give points to Comstock manipulators. Under those methods the
rich mines of Manchuria will probably cost more than they produce.
It would pay Wje Chinese Govern-,
ment to lease tlie neV gold fields to
foreign companies, whicli would
doubtless come forward promptly if
assured against the interference of
petty officials. Thoy would, of
course, attempt to beat tho Government, but they would at least got
out the metal to the best advantage,
and put it in the current of the
world's exchanges where it is needed.
Dr. Volkenbauer contributes to
The German Geographical Journal
a detailed account of tho early life
of Dr. Edward Schnitzcr, now best
known as Emm Pacha, the hero of
the equatorial provinces, whom Mr.
Stanley is on the way to relieve.
Ho was born, says Dr. Volkendaur,
on March 28, 1840, at Oppeln, in
Silesia. He was the son of a German merchant named Louis Schnitzel' and his wife, Pauline. When
only two years old he went with his
parents to Neisso, where, after the
death of his father in 1845, his
mother married Bernhard Treftz,
director of tho bank, and still resides there. Schnitzer is a member
of the Evangelical Church. He received his education in the Catholic
gymnasium at Neisso from 1820 to
i 808, and early showed a lively interest in natural history, making
collections of butterflies, beetles,
plants and stones. Later, at the
university of Brcslau, ho became
tho intimate freind of Dr. R. Long
and of the lato botanist, Freiherr
von Ucchtritz. Edward Schnitzer's
love of zoology, and especially of
ornithology, brought him into intimate relations with Prof. Grube,
with whom he undertook a little exploratory trip into tho Altvater
mountains. During his last term
at tho university he devoted himself to medical science, but never let
go the idea of becoming an explorer.
From Breslau he went to tho Berlin
University and became assistant to
Dr. Angelstein. After nn absenco
of half a year he returned to Berlin
in the autumn of 1854, only to
leave the city almost immediately
with the intention of going to Constantinople Instead of doing so,
however, wo find him established in
Autivarin, in Albania, as Turkish
harbour and district doctor. In 18-
70 he was sent for by tho governor,
Ismael Haoki Pacha, with whom
he did not remain long, for he went
as military physician to Syria Arabia
with an expedition. Soon after his
return he followed Ismael Paoha to
Trapezunt and Erzeroum, and later
to Epirus and Janina, of which
places Ismael Pacha had been governor.

REVELATIONS OP   OPIUM  SMUGGLING.
San Francisco, Aug. 2.—A published statement is made here that interesting and important disclosures,
whioh will lay bare the operations of
opium smugglers alleged to be working
through the district around Puget
Sound, are expected to bo made in the
investigation of Capt. James Sloan, of
the bark Arcturus. When Sloan was
arrested he maintained with great
vehemence that the two trunks seized
were put on his vessel just before putting to sea. Sloan was examined by
tho U. S. commissioner this morning
and the seizing officer testified as well
us Sloan and one of his personal
friends. Sloan has mado un affidavit
tbatJAlfred|Bartlett,Puget Sound agent
for \V. J. Adams, lumber merchant
and manager of the line of tow boats,

with the two other men. He como
alongside of the Arcturus nt dead of
night and slipped both on board, say.
ing they would be callod for in San

danger of his position and has telegraphed Bartlett to come forward with
an explanation. However, he has not
sent any reply to the question as to
whom the trunks were sent to.

Over an Embankment.
Rat Portage, July 29.—A very
disastrous accident occurred on the
C. P. R. last evening near Hawk Lake,
at the second trestle, The point being
known us the summit trestle had been
filled iu, but the embankment had
slid into the lake, carrying out about
twenty yards of the traok. A heavily
laden train of 17 cars came thundering around the civvil_. Engineer G09. .
Gould instantly recognised the terrible
danger and whistled "down brakes."
The brakes were applied too late and
tho engine and ten cars were pitched
headlong down the steep embankment,
rolling into the lake and being frightfully wrecked in tlie descent Seven
can were smashed to pieces and are
lying with tbe freight, consisting of
dry goods, groceries, merchandise,
etc., in the bottom of the lake. Nobody injured.
Great Silver Mines.—At the present time we read and hear much about
great silver mines. The following
particulars regarding the most famous
ones that the world has yet seen or
heard of will be of interest. The
world-famed Potosi mines, Bolivia,
yielded from 1546 to 1798, a period of
244 years, $1,000,000,007. This is a
large sum, but to obtain it the labor of
five generations of miners was required.
In twenty-seven years the Comstock
mines in California have yielded $410,-
000,000, and a new system of working
is now being inaugurated by which the
lode will be made to yield up as much
more in the next thirty years. But
three minesin all the world have produced more bullion than the Comstook.
These are the Potosi, with $1,000,-
000,000; Sierra Madre, $800,000,000,
and the Rio Grande, with $650,000,-
000. Next to the Comstook comes
the Veta Madre, with a yield of $335,-
045,000. The next in order, the Par-
millian, with $70,000,000, shows a
quick drop, and the yield of other
mines uf of note then runs from
$30,000,000 down to $16,000,000. The
annual production of the whole world
iB now $200,000,000. Half of thia
amount is produced in-the United
States. For twenty-five years past ,
India has absorbed $38,000,000 and
China $9,000,000, being $47,000,000
a year. There are annually used in
the arts in the United States gold and
silver bullion to the value of $16,000,-
000, and in the rest of the world not
less than $35,000,000, making a total

Thus thore is left for the purposes of
coinage for tho whole world $100,000,-

about over-production of silver, and
who wish to see it debased and sold
like so much pig iron or bar lead.
The remarkable mineral known as
corundum, and now being utilised as
one of tho most valuable adjuncts in
art and industry, has the peculiar
quality of being next to the diamond
in hardness, a property whioh is the
source of its great usefulness in certain applications. Tn its pure state it
is compesed of the oxide of aluminium,
and contains two atoms of oxyon in
each molecule. It is exceedingly tough
and compact; occurs in a great variety
of colors—blue, red, yellow to nearly
white—and the pure crystals are translucent mid used as gems.

Transplanting.—Bainy weather ia
best for transplanting, llie next best
thing is to transplant at evening, if to
be done in fair weather. One great
secret of success is to put a firm pressure around the plant when the roots
are in place and covered. Strawberries
and cabbage may bo moved without
much damage with a garden trowel.
It often occurs that a great saving oan
be made if a seed bed of beets, turnips
or csbbsge is in readiness to put in
places destroyed by worms, crows and
wet weather.—People and Patriot.
A correspondent of the English Mechanic gives the following simple remedy for rheumatism, whioh he hu
triod with success: One quart of milk,
quite hot, into which stir an ounce of
alum; this makes curds and whey.
Bathe the part affected with the whey
until too cold. In the meantime keep
the curds hot, and after bathing put
them on as a poultice, wrap in flannel
and—go to sleep (youenn). Three applications should be a perfect cure,
even in aggravated esses.
Old Jacob Ilobbs, of Mississippi,
buried $22,000 iu gold during the war,
wns killed beforo he told anybody of
the spot, and his own son Obadiah hu
been hunting for the yellow boys ever
since without nny luck. Last week he
hung himself to a tree, and in digging
his grave the long-lost fortune wns
turned up. Luck comes to some men
after death.
In England the daily production of
pins is estimated at 15,000,000. An
authority on tho subject says: —"The
manufacture of pins is regarded u ono
of the greatest prodigies of the division of labor, furnishing, u it does, 19,-
000 articles for the sum of 75 cents,
whioh requires the united diligence nf
fourteen skilled operatives."

Flsli In the Inland Lakes.
The Kamloops Sentinel thinks
something should be done towards
dovoloping tho resources of the interior lakes. In Shuswup Lako,
and other large inland lakes, salmon
trout nre said to be found in immense quantities, nnd they aro of
excellent quality. Hitherto they
have been taken only with tho hook,
but the Sentinel thinks nets could
be used to advantage and the wealth
of these waters might bo turned to
very profitable account. This is a
matter of considerable importance,
and it might be worth while for the
fishery authorities to make an exploration aud thoroughly investigate
the extent of the supply and the
probable commercial value of these
fish. We agroo with the Sentinel
that while much is boing dono to
develop the fisheries on the coast,
the interests of this industry should
not be neglected in the interior.
Anything so likely to add materially to the products of the province
and furnish remunerative employment to a number of men, is worthy
of serious attention.
A ur Election.
There has been a very lively fight
over the election contest in Soutli
Berifrew, where Mr. Duncan Mcln-
tyre and Mr. John Ferguson were
candidates in the Reform and Conservative interests respectively. The
principal charge brought against
Mr. Molntyre by his political adversaries seemed to be that he was not
a genuine Reformer. But this
charge was met by the statement
that he had been cordially endorsed
by Hon. Alex. Mackenzie, and that
a candidate who was good enough
for Mr. Mackenzie was good enongh
for anybody. Among other things
brought up at tho nomination meeting was tho question of commercial
union, and Mr. Mclntyre's friends
announced that he was in favor of
that measure, which, by the way,
seems to be gaining much support
in eastern Canada. Hon. Mr.
Thompson, Mr. Peter White, and
Mr. 0. H. Macintosh were present
at the meeting in the interest of the
Conservative candidate, and the proceedings were suoh as to leave the
impression that the election would
be keenly contested by both parties.
Mr. Molntyre has declared himself
to be an independent Liberal.
■i Rep. Dy Pop.
Our friend of the Vancouver
Herald has a very just and sensible
article on the question of provincial
representation in the British Columbia legislature. For some time the
Victoria Times has been drawing
attention to the constitution of the
cabinet, -pointing out that the three
members of which it is composed
are representatives of mainland
constituencies, and upon that fact
constructing the theory that Victoria
interests are sure to suffer. It is
claimed that because Vancouver
Island elects nearly one half the
members of the legislature it should
have at least one half the members
of the cabinet. The Herald very
properly replies that if one half the
representatives are elected on the
island, it is a state of things which
calls for immediate change, since
the mainland has undoubtedly a
great deal more than half the population. We entirely agree with our
Vancouver cotemporary. The disoussion in thi Times affords an excellent pretext for an agitation looking to a rearrangement of the constituencies so as to bring about representation by population. When
that has been done on an equitable
plan it will be found that Vancouver
Island will be entitled to neither
one half the representatives nor
half the cabinet. As a matter of
fact there is a great deal more
ground for complaint against the
present arrangement from the main
land than from the island, Tho
premier, although representing a
mainland constituency, is in all respects a Virtmrinn. His home is in
Victoria, and there is where his interests lie. Tho other two members
of the eabinet, although their interests are on the mainland, reside, of
course, in Victoria, where all ministers must necessarily reside. Moreover, both Mr. Theo. Davie and Mr.
Grant, who represent mainland con-
stituenoies, are Victorians. They
reside there, and there their interests lie—and Mr. Grant, by the
way, ia one of the principal owners
of the Times! It follows, then, that
at least three of the mainland representatives are residents of Victoria]
and if a question should come up in
the legislature where they had to
choose between the interests of tho
mainland and the island, it is altogether likely their votes would go
where their interests lie. It may
be said that the mainland constituencies which elected them are res-
Csible for this, and so they are;
that does not alter the circumstance; nor will it compensate the
mainland for any loss which may
grow out of the present system of
representation. Since the Times
has drawn attention lo the fact, lot
die people of the mainland make a
note of it, and let us prepare to demand during the present parliament
a measure that will give us representation by population. It is surely
a fair principle, und one against
wliidh wo think no sound argument
can brought in the case or' British
Columbia.

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LIMITED.)
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1S87,
the Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern wns purchased hy a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to be known ns tho
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tlio concern lias been for
nearly a year owned and controlled hy
tlio British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
the new company is to ccntinno tho pub*
licatiou of tho British Columbian news*
paper and carry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled entirety by
thoso whose individual interest it will he
to proinoto the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thore will ho no
slackening of tho energy hitherto displayed in the management ot the establishment, and its patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money,
The Columbian will continue to be entirely Independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to the advancement of such schemes as
may bo considered in the publio interest. *
The concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book ind
stationary establishment in this eity
having been taken over hy Mr. T. lt.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for hia own benefit,
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
the new company asks for public patronage on the ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
public welfare. It asks tbat the Columbian be judged on Its own merits and
supported only so long aa ita polioy is
encousistt with its professions. In consequence of this business ehange all no*
counts due the concern must be settled
without delay so that tbe books of the
former company may be adjusted and
olosed. Address all communications and
remittances to

An Kicltlng Tale of the Deep Blue Sea.
" What strange thing has como
athwart my hawser In the last
do7.on yours?" musod Capt. Carnos
of tho brig Mary, as he shifted his
quid.
" Woll, I might toll you of a bit of
julvenluro that happenod to my vessel
uno day among the Windward Islands
i -jf tho Caribbean Sea.
" Wo were just to the east ol the
Kroup, and about llfteen miles away,
whon thero eamo a dead calm. The sea
wus like a mill pond, and the Run beat
down Uko a ball of tiro.
"Ono of the men, who was aloft for
something, discovered ft large shark
prowling around the brig, and I
gavo the men permission to bait for
him.
" They batted a hook and tempted
him, but Iri would not even iraeil of
tho pork. Ho was a straight-out man-
eater, tnd ha wanted sailor or
nothing.
"Ho mads two or threo olrouits
about the vessel, his dorsal fin showing
above water, and he then settled down
on our port quarter, about twenty foot
away, and kept his eyes fastened
on the heads of tho meu above the
rail.
" Well, sir, thero was something so
aggravating in that shark settling down
there, as if determined to stay until
soma of us tumbled overboard,
that wo all -mado up our minds
to drive him away after somo
fashion.
m We had a harpoon aboard, and
ono of tho men used lt to give tho fish
sevornl bad gashes, but after oaoh wound
ho'd mako a circuit and como back to
tho old spot You may rip a shark from
atom to stern and he won't seem to mind
the hurt.
" By and by tho men got so hot that
they asked leave to man the boat and
either kill the grim devil or drive him
uway.
" I consented, and a sailor named
Williams scrambled Into the yawl as
she swung at tho davits to cast off when
she was down. Tho falls had scarcely
been manned when ono ot them
parted, and the boat dropped stem
down.
"The sailor was pitched ton foot
away, aud as he struck tho water thore
wus n yell from ovory man on tho brig.
Ho pitched right at tho shark, und
wo expected to seo him grabbed up In a
second.
" Indeod, wo all saw tho fish whirl
over and mako a rush, but thero was
also a second rush, and as tho sailor
swum alongside and seized a rope a
terrible combat began in tho water.
Wo know that one of tho fighters was
the shark, but lt was minutes before
we iiiiido out that the other was a
sword fish.
" I calculate that rumpus lastod all of
nfteoti minutes,
"Thoy fought on tho surface and
under it, thoy circled and eamo back,
they wont under the brig and around
her, niL« i tho sea was churned to perfect
foam ull Uio time.
" Tho affair finally ended by the shark
turning belly up, as dead as a hammer,
and I guess there wasn't a foot of him
which hadn't felt a thrust of the sword.
Ho bled liko a stuck hog, and was only
fairly dead when tho swordfish took a
tun fur tlio brig.
" Ho backed off about fifty feet and
came full tilt, and, as truo as I'm sitting hero, ho mode hor shiver as he
struck.   That sword of his struck good
oak plank, shoathed with copper, but
nothln;,' stopped It until lt showed for
six Indies in tho hold. Wo saw him as
he backed off, and know that he had
lost hla weapon.
"itvas a terrible hurt, and whon a
broczo sprang up and filled our sails ho
V;a3 &t!U lloundcrlng around the shark's
body, seeming to havo lost his compass
pobts altogether.
"On tho way down to Trinidad the
brig mado considerable water, and whon
wo eamo to unload her cargo we found
tho sword sticking Into her as I havo
told you.
" A portion of It was afterward carried to Boston, and is probably there
yet."

Bores On the Trains
Mr. Daves, of tbe Coast Line, who Is a
bundloot nerves and talent, told us somo
apt stories.
Ho said that one of the officers of a
road was muoh annoyed -at the Importunate ourloslty of an old Boston lady,
with Indescribable bangs upon her
forohead and gigantic spectacles upon
her noso.
Every time tho train stopped for fuel
thia formidable female wanted to know
what caused the detention.
Tired of this monotonous interrogation, the persecuted man determined to
put a vindictive stop to it. When the
dragon of virtue assailed him again
with tho old question, he replied:
" My dear madam, the orakeman Is
very sick at the stomach."
"Oood heavens, sir ("ejaculated tho
woman, "is he extremely Ul?"
The man nodded in solemn affirmation.
"How do you know!" shrieked
Boston.
"Because," wickedly retorted her
victim, " he is throwing up wood."
That silenced her questions, but she
mado an angry, memorandum and
threatened to report him to the
company.
The prohibition question having been
started Hr. Daves said the most ludicrous sight he had ever soon was a
drunken musician, who, after striking a
few inharmonious notes upon tho keys,
crawled up pn top of the piano, and
went to sleep before his astounded and
amused audience I
Mr. Daves also stated that he once
had a friend who periodically "sworo
off."
Ono day Daves met this man of many
broken promises, and said:
" John, have you sworn off again?"
There was an emphatlo negative
response, and then a candid declaration
that he "had not sworn off, but
stopped lying about it I"—[Augusta

'   WATEBINfl THE MILE,
The Story of an Oriental Peddler.
There was nn Arab youth In Bombay
who mado a Irving by peddling milk.
Liko nil Arab Mos Joins, ho was abstemious, frugal and very religious.
lie worked vory hard. ITo got~up
boforo daybreak, said his long prayers,
bought his milk, and I am sorry to
say, ho watered lt, But ho most religiously abstained from watering it
more than half.
By dint of hard work and watering
the milk ho had saved 200 rupees, ana
he concluded to go back to his happy
village- i» Arabia Foils, and buy a little
flock of goats and sheep, and live happy
during tho rest of his llfo.
lie went on board of one of tho native
Arab crafts und sailed happily with a
tight heart, for tho port of Sana, In tho
Red Sea.
I need hardly say that our Arab
friend, Ibon Hasld (for that was hla
namo) never parted from his bag of
rupees. He would croop Into an obscure
corner of tlio llttlo vessel, opon tlio
bag and run tlio bright silver through
his liands, and feol so happy.
Woll, on board of that craft was
ono of thoso mischievous African
monkeys, that aro always an inevitable
appendage to an Arab vossol.
This monkey spied Iben Hasld out,
and was seemingly a boon companion
to him. In fact, our friend Iben would
show him tlio rupees and tell him of
his future plans, and keep the bright
rupees running through his hands into
tho canvas bag.
But the treaciierous monkey was up to
his tricks. Ho watched his opportunity.
He snatched the bag of rupees suddenly
and ran up with it to tho masthead,
and there ho Imitated tlio usual pro-
.coedlngs of Iben Hasld, by trying to
run tlio rupees through his clumsy,
thick hands.
Of course, tho rupee:, foil on the
deck and In the water. Poor ben Hasld
scrambled for his rupees.
When tho monkey had emptied the
bag, he flung the emptied bag at the
Arab's head, and scampered, as usual,
all over the vossol.
Tho poor Arab, after recovering the
bag, put the remaining rupees Into it, and
returned to his obscure corner of the
ship and began to count them.
Alas 1 there wero only 100 rupees left.
But Ibon Ilasid was a devout ami
good Moslem, and ho thus exclaimed:
" Allah I Thou art just and righteous
and Mohammed is thy prophet. I have
saved 200 rupees hy selling milk, half
of which was water. If I had not
watered milk, I could certainly not
havo saved moro than 100 rupees.
"Thcroforo thy judgment is right.
Tho rupees that I made by water havo
now gone back to the wate.. and the
100 rupees I mado by tbe milk remain. Therefore let me t ;aln say,
'Allah, 11 Allah, and Mohammed Is his
prophet.'"
Housekeeping In Japan*
A lady writing from Japan says:
"Housekeeping hero has no trials.
Tha worn and vexod spirits of American
chatelaines ought to rest iu Japan after
death. Capable und faithful servants
are plenty and cheap. Our establishment
boasts flvo, and for theso we pay ubout
what two would cost in New York.
"I do not visit my kitchen oncoa month,
never give an order outside of a spoken
wish, yet tbe domestic machinery moves
with an easo and perfection unattainable at home by almost any effort on tho
part of the mistress.
' 'The manners of the servants aro amusing, not to say startling, to an American
accustomed to tho cheerful familiarity
of her native holp.
"Every night at bedtimo our five retainers appear, prostrate themselves
In succession to the earth, and retiro.
This to wish ino good night and to
renew their testimony of profound respect and pleasure over tho privilege
of serving mo. It was difficult at first
to prcsoivo the necessary dignity for
tho ceremony, but now I am as
majestically gracious as any other potentate
"The other day, on one of my raro
visits to the kltohon, a hairpin became
loosened and dropped without my
notice. I had beon seated In my
room only a few moments when my
houseman entered, bearing a email
salver, which he presented to me with
many genuflections.
"Fancy my surprise to see a llttlo
balrptn upon lt, and to learn from my
proud but embarrassed servitor that-it
had fallen to the kitchen floor from my
head.
"Afterward I found thero had boon a
disoussion as to who should pick lt up,
and almost a quarrel as to whom belonged tho Inestimable honor of bearing
It to its owner 1"

Children's Teeth,
Children's teeth are often neglected by
parents, who gtve the young mouths llttlo attention until decay and tho child's
complaints of toothache warn them of
their duty. Even If they know thore is
decay going on, thoy dismiss tho subject
with the thought thtft they aro only tho
first or temporary teeth, which will soon
bo replaced by the permanent ones.
This Is a great mistake, as tho regularity of tho second set depends largely
upon tlio healthy condition of the first,
which should be retained In thoir places
until the second Bet Is ready to appear,
when thoy will generally drop out or
becomo loosonod, and aro easily romoved.
Much mischief Is done by premature
docay and tbo extraction of tho temporary tooth. Many think that thoy should
bo removed to mako room for tho permanent tculh—a dangerous mistake, which
should bn avoided if after trouble would
bo prevented.
Ono ot the most beautiful provisions
of nature in tho human economy is that
for the removal of the first tooth by absorption of their roots to mako room for
tlio second to advance
Sometimes this absorption does not
go on fast enough, and tho second tooth
is observed lb be coming through before
the lir.it Is loosened. In suoh a. case tho
dentist should bo consulted, who, if he
bad made a proper study of this frequent
condition of things, will very readily
correct it.—[Dr. Gilbert.

Its statements to the public can be readily understood, its cash statement showing every item of lueomo and bow expended.
Its position Isascert alued annually from

larger profiis to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Let's Have the Proof.—Tho prca
ont circulation of the News-Advertiser
in Westminster is greater than that of
the Columbian and the Guardian
combined. Proof can be furnished
that this assertion ia correct.—Vancouver News-Advertiser. If proof can
be furnished to substantiate this preposterous assertion our cotemporary
would be only too ready to produce it,
because it would be one of the best
possible advertisements for himself.
But if he will put up $100 we shall be
ready to.cover it with an equal sum
on condition that if he fails with his
proof his deposit will be forfeited to
the Royal Columbian Hospital in this
city, and if he succeeds our deposit
will go to the hospital in Vancouvor.
What does our cotemporary say 'I
Evading the law.—In a copy of a
Victoria daily yesterday wc found nn
ordinary circular calling attention to a
great sale of damaged goods in ono of
the Victoria shops. Theso circulars
appear to have beon folded iu all tho
papers, and to have been sent through
tho poat-offiee in this way free of postage. This is not by any means tho
first time such a thing has occurred.
Wo have frequently noticed circulars
Bent through the post-office free of
postage under cover of a Victoria newspaper. It is hardly neccsaary to say
that such a practice is contrary to the
regulations. For evory ono of these
circulars the post-office is swidlcd out
of one cent for postage. If we wero
to offer the Columbian with a circular
in it to the postmaster at this city for
transmission by mail, that official would
either order tho circular to bo removed
or consign the whole edition to tho
dead-letter office, and ho would be
quite justified in doing ao. Undor tho
present post-ofHca iemulations newspapers are carried through tho mails
free of iwstage, but it is not supposed
that this liberal provision will bo
abused by publishers bo as to defraud
tho revenue. It is vory unfair that the
newspapers of Victoria should bo allowed to to get their circulars through
the mails free, while the regulations
are strictly enforced elsewhere

Uuilding operations aro -very active
throughout the city. Contractors havo
their hands full and aro unable to obtain men tu meet tho requirements of
their contract agreements. Architects
aro busily drawing plana for new structures, and altogether a regular boom
ia imminent, and tho prospects are
that boforo our wet season seta in
enough buildings will have boon walled
in to afford all carpenters plenty of
work during tho winter. Tho brick
yards are receiving steady sti'caiiis of
orders for Stick, and aro unablo to
moot tho demand, Mmwhuti Bros.,
of this city, have already contracted
for nearly a million bricks to bo delivered at once. A pleasing feature iu
connection with tho various structures
being erected is that builders aro
vicing with each other tu attack handsome und substantial edifices. The
Masons' aud Oddfellows' block, Mr.
Duncan's new hotel, the Scoullar-
Armstrong block, and tho bank of B.
C. building, when finished, will be
ornaments to tho city, and ones which
no place, twice the sizo of the city,
would be ashamed of.
MEN SOAROE,
One great drawback to tho present
activity is tho scarcity of workmen.
It is absolutely impossible at present
for contractors to obtain one half tho
men they require. This, and tho fact
that mauy other buildings are
about to be started, places builders In
an unpleasant position, and some fear
that they will bo unable to finish the
work iu their hands in reasonable time.
Ono gentleman sent to Portland for 30
men yesterday. Others aro sending
to Winnipeg and eastern points.
Bricklayers are paid §5 to $5.50 a day,
and somo as high as $0. A gentleman who has much work in progress
said he could employ 50 men to-morrow morning if he could obtain them.
It is said there aro many idle men in
Victoria at present. Thoy would do
well to come to the mainland. No
doubt, if workmen became plenty,
there would bo many more structures
started in the city at once, which, aa
yet, only exist in the minds of the property owners.
A NEW THEATRE.
Foremost among the improvements
contemplated,and not heretofore enumerated, is a now theatre for the Royal
City, Tlioro is none among us who
have nut concluded that an opera houso
was a necessity which Westminster has
long lacked. Timo and again the
schemo hus been agitated and talked
of. We aro pleased however to state
that Westminster is to have a theatre,
one that will be a creditable enterprise
to our city, and that it will be opened
in time for the coming season. The
projector ia Mr. A. M. Herring. The
situation ia on the corner of Mary and
Agues st. Mr. Herring haa purchased
that corner lot at a good figure, the
transaction being concluded yeaterday.
Mr. Herring, on being interviewed on
the subject this morning said: "I have
always thought that our city was badly
in want of some suitable concert hall
or -opera house. . I will at once give instructions to an architect to draw the
plana. The edifice will be GGxl32 aud
probably two stories high." Mr. Herring further said that tho stage will be
largo and commodious. Tho interior
fittings and decorations will bo of
modern fashion. Tho frescoing work

CANADA'S COMIC JOURNAL
GREAT IMPROVEMENTS FOR 1887.
milE AIM OF "GRTP" Is to set forth, In
X In an Impartial and Independent manner, tho tnisslng events of Ciiuiidinn political and social life,   Its Cartoons sp?ak
moro definitely find moro pleasingly than
who'o columns of editorial. In tills pungent, easily appreciable, and artistic style
of presenting a subject, the wholo situation Is revealed at a glance. The success
of Grip shows how well this /net Is appro-
elated—its Cartoons on Ihe passing pollt*-
lonl events of tho country holng even
more eagerly sought after than tho chaste
nnd humorous letter-press of the paper,—
though the latter is equal to that of any
similan|>uh|lentluu on ihe continent.
The publishers of Grip are making ex
tensive Improvements for 1888. Tho old
cover Is to ho discarded, and the Journal
will hereafter comprise 12 pages, and bs
printed on heavy toned nnd calendered
pa por,—every number being so artist ton! ly
executed as to compare favorably wltn
the best papers on the continent. The
advts, will be compressed and more systematically arranged; whllo similar tm*
provements will be mnde as to 1 ho letterpress. A new and handsome design will
adorn the title pnge; while tlm Cartoons
will certainly not sufler from extensive
Improvements In the nrtlstlo department.
The price of Grip will hereafter be 82 a
year, which is lower than Hint of nny
fmper of Its kind In America,—most of
hem selling for 85. Single numbers of
OWpwIll be 10 conts.
Twice a yenr, nt Midsummer and Christmas, a bcnutlful special number will bo
Issued, tho number of pages being increased, and nlonslng features introduced,
particulars of which will ho given In preceding Issues, These nuinb-u-s will be
presented to subscribers without extra
charge,
