SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Insect Pksth.—The annual loss
caused by insect! in the United
States is estimated at about Jl60,-
000,000, that on cotton alone being
$15,000,000. The insects increase
with the advance of civilisation, on
account, doubtless, of the greater
abundance of the food furnished
them. Every vegetable product and
every variety of fruit and flowers
are attended by special parasites,
each of which thriven oh its respective food'plant,
Vaccination and Anti-Vaccin
ation.—Statistics are against the
few persons who insist that vaccination is useless and unnecessary.
A compulsory vaccination law had
entirely driven out small-pox from
Zurich, so that not a case occurred
in 1882.   The law was repealed   in
1883, and in every 1000 deaths that
year 2 were caused by small-pox; in
1884, there were 3; in 1885, 17;
and in the first quarter of 1886, 85.
Iu England the deaths from this
disease in 1838-1842 were 57. 2 per
100,000 living; but in the five years
1880-1884 the death-rate was only
6. 5 per 100,000. Vaccination has
not only vastly reduced the number
of victims directly, but seems to
have had an indirect influence in
rendering the offspring of vaccinated parents less liable to the disease.
Highway Postal Locomotives.
—In the south of France the government postal service is supplemented by the "wagon post of
private contractors, who employ
many hundred horses in conveying
small parcels from town to town,
even along the railway lines.' This
business has become so extensive
that seworal'^roa^^oo^mo^es j have
been ordered for it, and are proving
very satisfactory. Two of these
machines are running between towns
70 miles apart, each making the
trip one way nightly at a speed of 8
miles an hour.. Fart of the road is
"very hilly, with long gradients up
to as much as 1 in 11. The locomotive, with coal and water, weighs
15 tons, and the loaded wagon from
7 to 10 tons, making the average
weight of the train about 23 tons.
At 175 pounds pressure the engines
give about 1! horse power, and with
fair roads use about half a ton of
fuel for the round trip of 140 miles,
These engines have been running
over six months without interruption.
Geological Architecture.—A
curious effect of the wear and tear
to which the earth's crust is ever
being subjected is exhibited in the
singularly-capped pinnacles existing on the South River in the
Wahsatoh Mountains. There are
hundreds of these slender pillars,
ranging in height from forty to four
hundred feet, most of them crowned
by large caps of stone. They are
not works of human art, as might
almost be imagined, but are the
memorial monuments ot the once
rounded hills, from which they have
been cut by the action of air and
water. These pinnacles alone remain of some square miles of solid
rock, which has been washed away
to a depth of four hundred feet.
The greater hardness of the surface
has caused it to resist erosion more
than the underlying rock, thus leaving the hugh stone caps perched
high in air on the points of the thin
columns. At one point, while this
carving process has been going on,
a thin wall of rock was penetrated,
leaving a lofty natural bridge or
arch, which adds to the picturesquc-
ness of a remarkable landscape.
Mastodon Oioanteus. — Some
thirty species of mastodon, the great
fossil mammal quite closely allied to
the elephant, have been described,
their bones having been found in
recent geological deposits of all
quarten of the globe except Africa.
The best known species is the North
American mastodon (M, giganteus),
of which fragments are frequently
disinterred in different parts of the
United States. A few remains had
been descovered as early as 1705,
though nothing like a complete
skeleton was obtained until 1801.
The most perfect skeleton now
known was discovered at Salisbury
Mills, near Newhurg, N.Y., in 1877,
and is now mounted in the American Museum of Natural History,
New York Oity. By the side of
this specimen will soon be placed
the skeleton of Barnum's great
Asiatic elephant, killed at the late
fire, and in the near future a good
example of the African elephant
will make the third figure in a notable group, Compared with the
mastodon, the elephant shows a
greater height and shorter body, together with many other differences.
A lady writes; "I waa enabled to remove the corns, root and branch, by the
use of HojUoway's Corn Cure." Others
who have tried It have the same eiperl-

LAST NIfiHT-8 DESPATCHES.
the new colonization CO.
London, Feb. 4.—Sir John Lister
Eaye has issued a prospectus of his
new Northwest settlement, -The company is called " The Canadian Auricul-
tural and Colonization Company."
The capital ia £210,000, divided inlo
20,000 seven per. cent, preference
shares of £10 each, which are now offered to the public, and £10,000 in
deferred shares of £1 each, which are
allotted to Sir J. Lister Kaye in part
payment of the 100,000 acres of land
situated on either side of tho Canadian
Pacific Railway westward of Rush
Lake station, of which he obtained the
concession from Ihe Dominion government and the Canadian Pacifio Railway company. Sir J. Lister Eaye alio received £105,000 cash, out of which
he is to defray the chief expenses incurred in the formation of the company. The board of directors includes
Mr. H. S. Hing, M.P., who is chairman, Mr. J. T. Agg-Qardner, M. P.,
Sir John Maswell, Mr, Geo. Moffatt,
of Montreal, Mr. Thos. Swlnyard, of
the Dominion Telegraph Oo. Sir J.
Lister Kaye is the acting manager in
Canada,
THE rUTUBE OP HOLLAND.
London, Feb. 5.—No dynasty question is the subject of more political interest in Germany than that of Holland. The king is 71 years of age, and
his majesty's only surviving child is a
daughter not vot eight yean old. If
the king should live fnr ten years or
so, he will have probably to decide between a German or an English husband for thia princess. If she comes
to the throne during her minority, tire
matrimonial question will be a more
anxious one, and outside of the present limits of Germany, no matter is so
near the heart of Bismarck as the entry of Holland into the German em-
Sire upon a footing like that of Bavaria.
bt only .is the position of Holland so
famrable for the development of the
German strength at sea but her colonial
possessions aro especially attractive.
They are not much coveted by Englishmen, but were Holland to join tbe
German states, the new empire would
at once become the second colonial
power in the world. It is known thst
the Dutch are not doing very well with
their colonies. These colonies extend
in Asia over an area of more than
700,000 square miles with a population
of nearly 29,000,000. The Dutch
maintain at present in their East In
dian possessions alone, 30,000 men
with 60 ships of war for the protection
of their commerce in these waters.
Just now in Holland there ia much
grumbling as to the Acheene war and,
though the Dutch are a staid people,
there are aymptcrms of unrest in and
around Holland which attract and still
more engage the interest of politicians.
IBIS atORNISS'S DESPATCHES.
THE GERMAN-ITALIAN TREATY.
London, Feb. 6—The treaty between Italy and Germany stipulates
that if Franc, attacks either country
the other shsll send an army of 300,-

and ten were killed.
PEACEFUL   RUSSIA.
St. Petersduro, Feb. ti.—The pa-
pors here discuss Iho Auitro-German
treaty and declare that Russia desires
to attack nobody.
AMERICAN r'Kl-.SEirn FOR  TIIE   PACIFIC.
Washington, Feb.0—Tirodispatoh
boat Di'lphin, it is announced, has been
ordered to join tho Pacific squadron.
It is believed the cruiser Atlanta,
which is now under ordera on a special
mission to St. Domingo, might also
be ordered to the Pacific. The im-
pre.sitm that sho will go on a long
cruise is strengthened by the fact that
Ihe request, to leave behind ammunition for eight inch guns, the new
trucks for which have not been received from the ordinance board, haa
been denied. Orders are to lake it on
board and reduce charges to suoh a
force as the carriages will stand. One
of the guns is dismounted and cannot
be trained nt all. The construction
department has been ordered to supply the Atlanta with coal and it is expected ahe will be sent to sea about
Saturday next. These orders hnvo
produced a stir in navy circles.

Monday Evening. Feb. 0,
A fear seems to exist in eastern
Canada that there will be financial
trouble during the present season.
There have been a good many notable failures recently, and the
money market always becomes nervous uiul$r such circumstances. Ono
of the chief causes of these disturbances has been the failure of an unusual uufnber of Canadian banks.
Within a few years tlio Exchange
Bank, the Maratime Bank, the
Bank of London and the Central
Bank have all gone to the wall. In
most of these cases the cause of tho
trouble has been the stupidity or
rascality of the managers. It is
fortunate that comparatively littlo
loss fell upon the holders of notes of
these banks, but the loss to shareholders, aud to a much larger circle
by reason, of business disturbances
has boen very extensive. The partial failure of the wheat crop in the
old provinces is another cause of
disturbance. A great many farmers
who pin their faith to farming on
the old lines have discovered that it
doesn't pay, and there are hundreds
of farms for sale with very fow buyers. Another cause of depression is
undoubtedly the high taxes imposed
upon consumers by the customs 'laws.
Every year the people tiro compelled
to pay enormous sums to the customs collectors, and notwithstanding
these payments the public debt has
been rapidly increasing. This drain
on the resources of the country must
make itself felt sooner or later, and
people are beginning to feel it now,
although many of them have no suspicion as to the cause of the trouble.
From beyond the mountains there
are coming to this const it great
many inquiries from persons who
have a desiro to escape a repetition
of the experiences of the past winter. The deadly blizzard lias been
too awful in its work to be even excused on any of the ordinary pleas,
and is now acting ns one of the most
efficient immigration agents for
British Columbia and the Pacific
coast generally. The San Francisco
Bulletin says the immigration to
California from the east has been
enormous, and shows no signs of
falling oft*. People who have experienced for the. briefest space of
time the charming and unequalled
climate of this coast will not be
contont to endure the blizzards and
other eccentricities of the northwestern states nnd territories. It
must not be supposed that we claim
perfection for our climate any more
than we do for our country, but we
do say without fear of successful
contradiction that the climate of
British Columbia is incomparably
superior to that of any other part of
Canada, and that there are very few
places in the United States which
surpass it. We are glad, therefore,
to welcome our thawed-out eastern
friends, because we know that in
coming to British Columbia they are
coming into circumstances that will
prove far more congenial and satisfactory than those they have loft.
We have lots of room for the whole
population of Ontario in this province, and if men of good sense and
correct habits come to us there need
be no misgivings concerning tho
future of themselves or of the Pacific province,
The result of the election in St.
Andrew's ward on Saturday was
disappointing to those who supported Mr. Reirl, but, of courso, the will
of the majority must prevail. Mr.
Reid made a very good councillor',
and we hope his successor will prove
equally valuable in the management
of municipal affairs. It is not often
that the people of Westminster tnke
such a lively interest in municipal
elections as was shown this year,
and we hope it will be a long time
before the municipal machinery is
again subjected to such a strain as
has been put upon it. The events
which havo been transpiring for the
past few weeks show the need there
iB for citizens to see that their names
are properly pluced on the voters'
lists, and that thoy are in every wny
duly qualified to vote. A large
number of those who t hould have
voted at the late election wero unable to do so owing to their own
carelessness. This ought not to
occur again. The citizen who wilfully abstains from qualifying him
self to exercise the rights of citizenship does not deserve to be recognized as a oitizen at all. We hope
the time is not far oS when the laws
relating to assessment and the preparation of voters' lists will be so
changed that the names of all qualified voters will be placed thereon by
the assessor or the court of revision
whether the elector makes application to that effect or not. This is
the system pursued in many of the
eastern provinces, and we believe it
is the only aystem that will produce
a perfect voters' list. The same
system should be adopted with respect to the lists prepared for provincial and Dominion elections, The
council thii year will be called upon
to consider some very important
questions affecting the interests of
the city, ahd, it is most dosiraMe
thot the members should act with
great judgment snd discretion.
Party feelings, if they exist, should
not be permitted to influence any
persons engaged In performing a
public duty. If the council nnd the
people determine und act wisely the
progress of the city is assured: if
they blunder,, our interests must suffer.

Tbe Bunday Closing Appeal Case.
The case of city of Westminster vs.
Curran, an appeal from the decision of
Mr. W. D. Ferris, J. P., in the matlcr
of the Sunday Closing by-law, came
bofore his lordship Mr. Justice McCreight this morning. Mr. McColl for
respondent, Mr. Atkinson for city of
Westminster. Mr. McColl entered an
objeel ion to the effect that the city wns
not the party aggrieved by the decision, and were, therefore, not the
proper parties to tho case, the information having beeu laid by Frank Devlin. Mr. Atkinson quoted from the
Stntutes of 1887, which rend, "any
person thinking himself aggrieved"
which would make Mr. Devlin's information good. His Lordship held tlmt
if the law was interpreted in this way
any siwash or Chinaman might fancy
himself aggrieved and bring in an appeal. His lordship reserved decision
on the objection till to-morrow, it
being one which could not bu decided
on without referring to authorities.
Mr. Atkinson wished to amend the information, but counsel for respondent
objected.
Inland Fruit Growing.
Many outsiders are under tho impression that the fruit growing region
of British Columbia is confined to iho
coast, and a short dUtanco inland. It
is true Westminster district produces
the finest fruit in the province and
probably on the coast, but the region
in which fruit can be most Micessfully
grown iB very largo and oxtondB fully
300 niilcB inland. Dr. Welsh received
a box of apples to-day from his friend
Mr. H. B. Dark, of Boston Bur, two
ot which were hud on uur table, lt
would be hard to tind more perfect
npples than they are. Each apple
weighs about 10 osra,, is Round, firm
and highly flavored, und to alt appearance is as fresh as if picked from the
tree to-day instead of live months ago,
aB is really the case. Boston Bar is
about 150 miles inland and Mr, Dark
has been most successful in growing
every kind of fruit Ito has experimented with. This is a practical demonstration of tho capabilities of tlie
province and givos fresh proof of what
we have often asserted. At Spence's
Bridge, nearly 200 miles inland, Mr.
Murray has for years most successfully
grown different varieties of grapes
They mature to perfection aud are as
delicious -us any grown on the cons',

Among tho passengers detuned ut

had never beon in Canada before.
Tho night before the blockade was

sitting round the firepL-cu in the C.P.
R. hotel telling yams, incidents of
travel in various countries aud discussing any subject that happened to

old Missourian and when thu conversation turned on Cm ml a ho wns asked

Special to the Columbian.
Nanaimo, Fob. 4.—A mass meeting
of tho men was held this afternoon and
evening. The mooting differed from
tlie evidence at tlio inquest, and they
claimed the explosion was caused by
gas accumulated from Horn's door
being open, which was started by the
the shot and extended by tho dust.
They condemned tho inquoat for not
allowing full evidence of tho miners'
committee to be taken. A motion
was carried for tho men of each colliery to go to work aa the Chinamen
have been taken out. A committee
was appointed to prepare the propoaed
amendments to the mining act. The
question of safety lampa, and the proposals of the managers, wore left in
tho hands of the miners at each colliery. Committees to interview the
managers on Monday morning were
appointed, and a mass meeting will
be held in Nanaimo on Monday at
3 o'clock p.m..
Joseph Rusau, Percy, writes; "I was
induced to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil
for a lameness which troubled mo for
three or four years, and found it tho
best article I ever tried, lt has been a
great blessing tome." Beware of similarly named articles; they aro imitations
of Dr, Thomas' Eclectric Oil.

velocity nud swept everything in its
course. Encountering Mr. Kui (Tit's
houso it swept it instantly from its
foundation, nud carried it along till it
struck some stumps which stopped its
progress; but the momentum, nnd the
stumps whicli acted as a pivot, swung
it right about face. Mr. Poulin, who
was in an adjacent houao nud saw it
coming, ran to warn tho inmates who
wore at dinner, but ho was too late.aud
very fortunately, or they would have
been most likely drowned nr killed.
Mr. Poulin was overtaken and swept
along, sometimes underneath nnd sometimes above the seething slush, nnd
had the misfortune to have his leg
broken, A team of horses and sleigh,

were piled promiscuously between the
houso aud the stumps; but were afterwards takeu out alive. The slush
rushing through the house carried
everything with it, and destroyed the
entiro contents. To make matters

BANK SWINDLERS UAPTUBED.
London, Feb. 2.*—Five stylishly apt
pearing men were charged to-day iu
in tho Marylebone police court with
attempting to obtain £30,000 from the
Bank of England upon forged or stolen
bonds of the Hamilton & Northwestern
railway, of Oanada. The police failed
to capture another man who
belonged to tbe band, nor did they
succeed in securing the bonds. One
of the prisoners posed as "Lord Fairfax," and had lived in great style at
the Grand hotel, Paris. The prisoners were remanded. It is thought
they belong to a gang of forgers, some
of whom wore captured a few weeks
ago.
THE NEWSPAPERS AND PP.1ZE PIOHT1NO.
London, Feb. 5 —Mr. Henry Matthews, the homo secretary, will find
himself faced by a new problem when
parliament meets. He will be asked
in defense of the law, if it is legal for
newspapers to promote prize fighting
in England. The point is a pretty
one, and the social jurist intends to
make the most of it. Tho contention
is made that the publication of challenges for prize tights, and the details
thereof are analogous to the acts
of the Irish papers in publishing
the proceedings of the proclaimed, and
therefore illegal, National League.
The law does not recognize distinctions
that hare no difference. Hence it is
argued by the opponents of prize fighting the English newspapers are equally
guilty with their nationalist cotempor-
arieB in Ireland if they aid or abet an illegal practice. Just now the Bporting
newspapers are filled with challenges
to prize lights. The descriptions are
given ofthe preliminaries to the encounters, and tickets are sold to persons willing to pay to witness an unlawful sport. The home secretary will
havo these practices brought to hia notice, and he will be asked to uphold
the law or by sanctioning its evasion,
permit prize fighting.
