Monday  Evening, Oct. II, 18S7.
"Our foreign visiting yaohtsnion,"
says tho New York Observer, "put
our American yachtsmen to shame
by their observance of the Christian
Sabbath. Lieutent Henn, of the
Galatea, made an enviable impression
by his observance of the day of rest
in all that related to the work and
sailing of his yacht. Captain Barr,
of tho Thistle, attended service at
the Dutch Reformed church on
Sunday, while his vessel lay all day
at atiochor. His antagonist, the
Volunteer, spent the morning in
sailing down the bay, accompanied
by a fleet of admirers."
. It may lie that England is more
firmly planted in India than is generally supposed: the free gift of two
million dollars made by the Nizam
of Hyderabad to the Indian Government for the purpose of strengthening the defences of the northwest
frontier against possible Bustiun aggression, is a substantial indication
of loyalty on the part of the Mohammedan populations that must be disturbing to Anglophobists everywhere. All India evidently is not
groaning under English tyranny;
and an invader could not count on
the whole population rising to aid
in shaking 'oil' the English yoke.
And if Russia really has any de-
siges India-wards, perhaps the fact
of this gift, and the reflection that
England has fifty million loyal Mohammedan subjects whose lighting
men would ask nothing better than
to be led against the power that is
threatening tho Caliph of Constantinople, may J induce an enduring
hesitancy. The fate of Constanti-
tinople, too, may rest in the hollow
of England's hand, while she has
this reserve of solidiery antagonistic
to the Muscovite.—The Week.
There nre here more young medical men from the United States perfecting themselves in the various
branches of medicine and surgery
at Vienna than I found in London.
They say it is much the best field to
be found in thd world, as, for among
other reasons, everything is concentrated. One vast hospital here has
3,000 beds. It may be imagined what
a fine opportunity is afforded for a
practical knowledge of surgery
when it is learned that there is never
the least hesitation about attempting the most difficult and delicate
operations. Population is teeming,
and those above have little regard
for the life or liberty of those
below. Experimenting is freely
practised, and the hapless patient
who has no fritnds *to protect him
will awaken after an involuntary
chloroforming to find that the surgeon's knife has made daring raids
into his interior organization. Recently a peasant came to tho hospital with no nose. The surgeons
thought he might as welljiavo one,
so they took another peasant und
without so much as saying "by your
leave," put him to sleep, and in a
trice had cut enough flesh olf him
to make a nose of first-class proportions.— Cor. of Baltimore Sun.
Tho new triple alliance should
prove more enduring than tho old
one, because there is no conflict of
political interests, at least for the
presont, among its members. While
the llnlkan dispute has permanently
sot Russia and Austria in opposition
to each other, occasional outbursts
of anti-German feeling at St. Petersburg most equally exciieresentment
at Berlin. With Italy the case is
different. Now that her old scores
are settled, her interests nowhere
antagonize those of ^either Austria or
Germany. With the frequent and
ostentations demonstrations of
friendsip between Russia and France and the constant intrigues of the
Czar's diplomats in Turkey, Germany and Russia must have long
since ceased to place much confidence
in their old partner in the imperial
alliance. Italy's Balkan policy, on
the other hand, has repeatedly
shown itself opposed to that of Russia, and the latter power hns deeply
offended King Humbert's government by malicious suggestions, if
not hurtful acts, concerning Abyssinia. Italy cannot hu suspected of
any present or prospective leanings
towards France. Should tho great
despotism of Eastern Europe, therefore, undertake anaggressiveallinnce
with the great republic of Western
Europe the pair would find a tolcr
ably stout intervening barrier in
Germany, Austria and Italy.—-V. Y.

THIS MOBIU-JS'S DESPATCHES.
SOOLANOEK   PUNISHED.
Pams, Oct. 17.—General Boulanger
accepts the punishment imposed upon
upon him by order of Gen. Ferron,
minister of war, and acknowledges
that his language to reporter, about
the Oaffarel affair was indiscreet.
Gen; Forron, minister a\ war, says
that the inquiry into th. matter of .the
sale of-service decorations'is nearly
completed snd that no officer of the
army nor any employee of the war. department bas been found to be involved in the affair, excepting General
Caffarel and Genl. D'Andlau.
Henri Rochefort, in his paper Ie
Infransij/eanfe, charges that M. Wilson, the president's son-in-law, received a hundred thousand francs for
his influence in securing a decoration
for one person. Mr. Wilson denies
tho statement (published iii the In-
transitjeuute, and he intends to prosecute M. Rochefort for calumny.
TUB STORY RENTED.
Nashviue, Oct. 17.—The story
telegraphed the Chicago News about
an attempt being made to wreek the
president's train in Arkansas by burning a trestle is totally denied by all
correspondents who have been with the
party, nothing of tho sort occurred is
what they all say.
HOT THE MEASLES.
LoNiroN, Oct. 17.—Great anxiety
prevails in court circles over the condition of the Princesses Louise and
Maudo of Wales nlio aro ill with the
measles in Copenhagen. Age of the
princesses aro respectively 20 and 18,
and the dangerous charaoter of the disease is therefore enhanced.
llETTlXi: IRRITATED.
London, Oct. 17.-The increased
irritation of Russia over the state of
affairs in Bulgaria together with the
inactivity of the porte renders it extremely likely that the czar's government will make a positive demand on
the Bulgaria and Russian powers with
reference to the state of that principality almost immediately. In semi-official circles there is a conviction thst
something of this kiod will occur during the week.
A SVSrEOTED ROBBER.
Waco, Texas, Oct. 17.—On the
night of Sept. 29th a single robber
stopped and rifled two stages filled
with passengers on tho road between
Ballinger and San Angelo. John A.
Newcnmbe alias Smith, was suspected
of being the robber and was yesterday
brought here in custody of a deputy
U.*S. marshal! and arraigned before
Commissioner Fink on charge of robbing the mail. He was held in $2,600
bail.
NATIONALISTS   MEETINU.
Dunus, Oct. 17.—Messrs. O'Brien
and Thos, P. Gill, assisted by other
national leaders, conducted an immense meeting at Woodford last night
in spite of the fact that tho meeting
had been proclaimed. The meeting
was called tn order at midnight and
was undisturbed tn tho end. The
promoters of the nffrir - took the precaution to eut the telegraph wires,
thus preventing ciinini'iuicalion with
Dublin nnd the polico were not aware
of the meeting until after it adjourned.
THE MIOHTV WILL   MEET.
Berlin, Oct. 17.—Rumors are revived
of a meeting between tire Emperor
William nnd tho Czar, and it is alleged Unit it will take place in Punier-
ink within a fortnight.

all the Catholic churches in this eity
to dny, calling upon all pastors to urgo
their congregations to contribute freely
to tho collection tu he trikcu lip on the
last Sunday in October, tu be presented to the pupe ou tho orxnssiuu'of his
jubilee, nml reminding Catholics of
their duty tu oboy the nbly father not
only in purely religious matters, but
Also in matters of discipline connected
witii llio ohurch.
A TERRIBLE DEID.
Chicaoo, Oct. 17. —Stephen W.
Kawson, n well-known banker, and
connected with the Union Brush Co.,
was probably fatally shot at noon today, near the Third Presbyterian
Church, at ihe corner of Ashland and
Ogdou avenues, by his atopson, Ralph
Haymaker. Tho shouting occasioned
great excitement, and occurred us the
worshijrpers from church were proceeding homoward. Mr. Rnwson
emerged from tho soutli entrance of
the church and started diagonally
across Ogden avenue on his way to his
residence. Haymaker, who had been
waiting fur nearly- an hour, when he
saw Itnwson como, ran until within 8
feet of the banker, thon drew a large
revolver and fired into tho back of the
helpless man, who foil forward upon
his hands and kneos, but before he
struck the earth another bullet was
lodged in his body. The young assassin did not advance ns he fired but
stood pnlo nnd trembling in the gutter.
Whon his Aged victim fell, Haymaker
tunied the revolvor down upon the
prostrate body aud fired 3 times in
succession.   For a moment the throng
uf people coming from churoh wtt
paralyzed by tie spectacle, then a panic ensued among the women tnd ohildren, who fled in wild disorder. As
Haymaker started across the avenue
with the weapon still in hit hand, t
man leaped out of the crowd tnd
seized tlio assassin, who wat shortly
afterwards turned over to the police,
amid cries of "Hang him!" "Takt
me to jail as quickly as possible," ht
said to tho officer; "I have done my
business, now you do yours." It is
stated that tho shooting comet from
domestic troubles. Mr. Rawson recently applied for a divorce from hit
wife, A. L. Lee, who had previously
boon married twice. The stepaon,
Ralph W. Haymaker, or Wm. Let, tl
he was sometimes called, took hit
mother's part and was greatly indignant at certain charges made by Mr.
Rawson against her.
ANARcanir meeting.
PAr-,is, Oct 17.—An anarchist meet-.
ing was held to-night at Menilmen-
hAut an the outskirts of Paris, tt which
Louise Michel and other prominent
woman anarchists wore present. The
police made on attempt to break up
the. meeting, and a general affray wtt
tho result, in which many were wounded. The gendarmes used batons and
revolvers freely.   3 arrest! were made.
ARRESTED FOR FRAUD.
Barcelona, Oct. 17.—Forty pertont
have been arrested here charged with
extensive frauds upon" tile postal department. Some prominent official,
are implicated.
CHINESE CONCESSIONS.
London, Oct. 17.— The Standard!.
Shanghai despatch says that further
do'ays have transpired concerning the
American syndicate matter. It it
stated that Count Mitkiewicz in obtaining the concessions used Mr. Vtn- -
derbilt's name, which actually beetme
incorporated in an agreement signed by
Hung Chang. Vanderbilt wus warned,
but too lato to prevent the occurrence.
Mitkiewicz then used the ttamea of
Mr. Gould and McKay, but upon Mr.
Gould's son denying any connection
with Mitkiewicz, ht engaged Buk.r
Bros., of London, who, after consulting a large London banking firm,
pronounced theachemeuntenabfe. It it
learned, moreover, that whatever railways, etc., should be undertaken with
money raised in America were to be
mortgaged to the syndicate.

feemer at last!" Well, Patience, I'll
tell yer how I kern ttr ttk; tad kt
swallored his coffee tnd pushid back
his plate, whilst I sot back In my ohttr
too surprised to utter a word. " Yer
see, last Sunday, when the parson give
out the plates for collection, he stood
and gave us a littlo talkin' to erbdut
girin'. He said ez how the Lord giv
us all we lied; family, friends, food,
clues; everything kom from Hia; but
when it cum oar turn to giv wt wsi
only willin' to part with the bits. We
wuz satisfied to give the Lord our
smallest coins, and even hunted onr
pockets to find em. New, I lowed
there wuz heaps if truth in thtt, ltd
ter tell the truth it made me feel kinder small, coz I'd put • ten cent piece in
my weskit pooket thit mornin' expressly fer the plate. So I hunted throe
my pocket, ter see if hy luck I hed
enything bigger, and I found thet
Mexican half dollar with a cross eut
onto one side. I put thet on the plato
(good side up) and felt a good deal
easier coz I'd give a little extra to tht
Lord. Wall, Monday, when I wui in
town I went into a terbscoer store ttr
buy some clay pipes for the Tompkin's
youngsters to blow soap bubbles with.
While I wuz there, in cum the parson.
He shmk hands oorjil like, and when
we'd talked awhile he threw down half
a dollar and any. ter the man: 'Giv
me sumo fine cut T. & B.;' and there,
Patrmrco, was my identikle half dollar I'd giv ter tho Lord! That tot tit
ter thinkin'. I sine a pledge not to
uso whisky or terbscoer; nor to ' help
the bisnesa along, 'God being' rijr
helper.' I Urn my boys not ttr Ml
terbacoer coz its sure ter defile tht
temple ef the sole; and then I tee the
money I give ter tho Lord on Sunday
spent fer terbaccer on Monday. - Now,
Patience, I leve it to you: Don tht
Lord smoko terbacoer?"
And before I could ketch Iny breth
Uozekiah wuz outer the door.

The Victoria Colonist publishes
what purports to bo the tenor of a
speech delivered by the umyorof
Vancouver to the excursionists who
arrived from the cast on Friday
evening. There were about 350
excursionists; and as soon us the
train stopped, the whole lot, with
the exception of threo or four, immediately went on board tho str.
Princess Louise to continuo the journey. According to the Colonist
Mayor McLean got on a wood pile
at the wharf and appealed to the
excursionists to remain until the following day. He intimated, according to the report, that the steamer
was not safe to carry so many peo
pie across the straits. If the incident is reported at all correctly, it
does not speak well for the mayor's
sense of the dignity of his position,
or for his gumption. It is no doubt
a disappointment to the people of
Vancouver to find that the through
passenger travel is of very little
benefit to the city, and that excursionists come not for the purpose of
investing in terming lots but for the
enjoyments of the round trip; but
an appeal such as Mayor McLean is
said to have made is quite as injudicious as it is undignified. The
Colonist intimates that the 0. P. N.
Oo, wilt enter an action for libel
against the mayor because he libelled
its steamer. This is probably bluff,
and will not end in anything more
sericu'. The Princess Louise is one
of the staunchest and most seaworthy of all the company's steamers, and anything that Mayor McLean could say would not be apt to
influence the public mind against
her.    	
Dun, Wiman & Oo. show that
the failures in Oanada and the
United States during the current
year have been unusually large,
For the 9 months ending with September there have been 1,017 failures in Oanada, with liabilities
amounting to $13,458,261. This is
an increase of more than $6,000,000
as compared with the corresponding
period of 1885 or 1886. The most
of thit large increase comes from
failures in New Brunswick consequent upon the collapse of the
Maritime Bank. According to province! the liabilities stand as follow!: Ontario, $3,996,225; Quebec,
$3,341,359; New Brunswick, $5,-
253,515; Nova Scotia, $527,160;
P. E. Island, $115,600; Manitoba,
$213,505; British Columbia, $100,-
900. The New Brunswick bank
failure occurred during the first
quarter of the year, but in tbe third
quarter, when there was no bank
failure, the failures aggregated $1,-
096,350 more than for the corresponding period of the previous year.
This is a very serious increase, and
does not speak well for the commercial prosperity of the country. In
the United States the failures during the quarter ending with September aggregated $73,000,000, against
$27,000,000 for the corresponding
quarter of 1886. This large increase
is accounted for by a number of
heavy failures resulting from reckless speculation. It is not improbable thlt we may be approaching a
period ' of commercial depression
both in Oanada and the United
States; and if this be the case, the
chances are that it will fall more
heavily upon the people south of the
line than upon us.
The attempt of the British government to convict the lord mayor
of Dublin has proved to be a very
surprising boomerang. The mayor
wu promptly acquitted by the jury,
and the government officials who
precipitated the Mitchellstown riot
have been indicted by the grand
jury for murder! This is turning
the tables with a vengeance; and it
hit produced a profound feeling of
uneasiness throughout the country.
It hu eome to be accepted as a fact
that Irish juries cannot be relied
upon (or I fair verdict in cases
where there is a conflict between
the people and the officials. The
lord mayor's offence was one which
all Irish nationalists- looked upon as
a potitive virtue instead of a crime;
and u the evidence was of such a
nature u to be open at least to
queition, we need not be surprised
it the conclusion at whioh Ihe jury
arrived. But no one looked for the
indictment of officers tent to enforce the law against pugnacious
tenant! who were setting law at
defiance. It is believed the government will interfere in some way for
the protection of its officers; but if
the titn should be arbitrarily taken
out of the Irish courts, tho right of
trial by jury will be virtually abandoned. The spectacle is certainly
not encouraging. A case very similar in many respects lately occurred
very near home. In the city of
Montreal'a Frenoh Canadian was
brought to trial for a serious offence,
the penalty of which would be a
term in the penitentiary, The evidence of his guilt seemed conclusive
enough, and under ordinary circumstances his conviction would be certain. The defending advocates,
however, taring tbat thero was no
etctpe far their client by the ordinary methods, made a strong and
pathetic appeal for the prisoner on
the ground of his nationality. One
of them declared that when the
British came to Oanada first they
were destitute of money or clothing,
and would have perished but for the
shelter and assistance given by the
French ancestors of the prisoner
who wns now in danger of being
consigned to a folon's cell! The result of this stylo of nppenl was that
the French members of the jury
absolutely refused to convict, nnd
the proseoution failed. Tho prisoner
is still hold for trial, but tlie incident is one which lends us to the
conclusion thut there are other
places than Ireland where men mny
bo induced to sot aside the most
sacred duties of citizenship for reasons which, if allowed to prevail
generally, must quickly undermine
tho wholo fabric of civil government
and personal liberty.
Kvery wifo and mother iu tho conutry
should know tho great vnluo of Ayer s
SarsapariUa, as a blood purifier. It gives
tone, health and strength to tlio vital organs, corrects all irregularities, and expels impurities from tlio system. Young
and old use it.
Perfeot Hair
Indicates a natural and healthy comli-
tion of the scalp, and of tho glands
through which nourishment is obtained.
When, in consequence of age and disease, the hair becomes weak, thin, and
gray, Ayer's Hair Vigor will strengthen
it, restore its original color, promote its
tepid and vigorous growth, and impart
to it the lustre and freshness of youth.
I have used Ayer's Hair Vigor for a
long time, and am convinced of its
value. "When I was 17 years of age my
hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
the good effects it produced. It not
only restored tlio color to my hair, but
so stimulated its growth, that I have
now more hair than ever before. —

If yotj ABE suffering from debility
and loss of appetite; if your stomach is
out of order, or your mind confused;
take Ayer's SarsapariUa. This medicine
will restore physical force and elasticity
to the system, more surely and speedily
than any tonic yet discovered.
For six months I suffered from livor
and stomach troubles. My food did not
nourish roe, and I bocamo weak and
verymuch emaciated. I tooksix bottles
of Ayer's SarsapariUa, and was cured.

to be cut up to supply thnt amount. Mu

lie has not been in New York for some

lived on tho fat of the laud, for his orders
for supplies were on such a grand scale

into the house had to be thrown away
daily. While his father, who made the

they had a pleasant lime of it. 1'very

A correspondent suggests, In a letter
that ths Saturday half-holiday "has been
established and generally observed
throughout Great Britain fpr many years

annually observed-, yet Great Britain
remains prosperous. There are six bank
linhilnys in Lngland and Ireland, five of
which originate ln religious observance,

Mi.inlays in Msy snd August, With New

seven holidays without "Labor Day."

"I suppose," said tho rojrartor, "that
you meet with somo ipieer incidents in
the course of your business ?"
"Yes, I remember a customer corrrin-;
to me not long ago for liisseemi 1 urtitli-lrij
leg. He had worn tlu tlrst for- n numb r
of years, lie sni.l that Ire was ill much
trouble of mind. He was going to get

Tho question iu his inind win w urther to
tell her before, or wait until after marriage. 1 advised him lo inform her beforehand, as utliei'wi e a'.in might have
legal ground to"ripply for nn annulment
of the marriage on tho gioiuid of deception. He told me afterward that he followod my advice, and the lady concluded
that she loved him none tho less on account of his misfortune. Another singular incident, hut of a different character,
was in connection with the collision of
two steamers, one of which had just
started from this port for Europe, and
had to put back again ou account of tlie
damage. None of tiro passengers were
injured by the accident, and a frien I
jokingly remarked in my presence that 1
would, no doubt, ire greatly .disappointed
that there was no loss of limb, as 1 would
therefore get no revenue Irom tlie n.-.-ur-
ronce. Strangely <nough tludriy following a man from Ohio walked into my
offlee and said that he want.nl an uttiticiiil
leg. He related that he had been ft passenger ou the steamer which had to put
back on account, of the collision, having
started Irom his home iu Ohio to pay a
visit to Europo. When the vessel returned to port he con-ltidorl, on rellco-
tion, to give up his Europe-iti trip nn I to
expend the nio-iey In lind received for
the trip in providing himself with n now
artificial leg in place of Iho one Which he
then wore. So it seems that tlie collision
of those two steamers brought business
alter all."
"Who supply limbs for tho soldiers ?"
"Tho business is distribute I among

No Union Boldier who lost a limb in the

In his lecture on the heat action of explosives, delivered to the Institution of
Civil Engineers, London, Captain Noble
said: "Twenty-Itvo years iigo our most
powerful piece of artillery was a impounder throwing a projectile with ft
velocity of 1570 feet a second. Now the
weight oi our guns is increased from live
tons to 100, the velocities from 111.10 to
2000 (oet and the energies frn.u 110J foot-
tons to over 53,000 foot-tons."

Ths black rot so common in England
three hundred years ago h is been, it is
believed by naturalists, completely exterminated by the gray and dun species
of later times. Specimens cannot bo obtained by offering extravagant prims-,

A Chinaman is stated to have discovered that cast-off horseshoes make good
cutlers' steel. The wrought iron of tlu
shoes having been constantly hammered
acquires the hardness of steel. It is also
supposed that the animal heat of the
hoof has something to do with it. The
metal is said to be good for the manufacture of knives and sword-blades.
Cakuomc acid sprinkled on the pantry-

A party of Indians going down tho

in the water about half a mile below
the oity. They went in chase immediately, and after an exciting raco
caught up with it and with a knife cut
its throat. Instead of continuing on
their way down the river the Indiana
returned to the' oity and dispdied of
the carcase to one of onr game dealers for (5. The whole affair did not
occupy more than nn hour, and the
Siwashos departed, extremely proud
of their afternoon's work.

in giving six of them a regular old-
fashioned pounding. Thia morning
the defeated aiwnshos told their grevi-
ances to tho Indian agent who of
course could only warn them not to
mix too much in doubtful society or ho
prepared to stand tho consequences.

The rremler In Vancouver.
Tho str. Premier arrived in Vancouver last evening from Port Town-
send and met with a rousiug reception
at the hands of the people there.
The Premier arrived just as the evening church service was over, and nearly everyone who had attended, men,
women and children soon found their
way to the wharf and aboard tho
steamer. Lighted by electricity and
with everything new and handsome
the Premier looked handsome, and nl'
though much had been laid as to her
beauty and appointments slio exceeded
the expectations uf the most sanguine.
It il estimated that nearly 1000 people
visited the steamer duriug the evening.
Takes Hie Cake.
It is quite certain now that the con-
teat for first-place in big potatoes has
been decided, for this season at least,
in favor of Kamloops. The Sentinel
has one weighing 5. lbs 14 oz. We
hope the editor will share his wonderful good fortune with some of his starving confreres throughout the province.
We notice that the Sentinel has nlrrn
been put in possession of two beets
weighing respectively 11 and 14 lbs.
Kamloops may be a good place for
dead beats, but at the provincial exhibition last Month Mr. Thos. McNoeloy,
of Ladners, showed 6 beets which
averaged 20 lbs. each, and C turnips
which give an average of 30 lbs. each.

The Experimental Farm.
Prof. Saunders, of the government
experimental farms at Ottawa, arrived
in the city last night from Britisli
Columbia, and will remain in the province a couple of weeks, during which
he wilt visit tho northwestern and
southwestern portions of the province
Theobjectof nil visit to Britisli Columbia was to select a site fur tho proposed experimental farm. Tho area of
agricultural lands which lie found in
Pacific province wirs much greater limn
he anticipated. Cattle nnd sheep u-eie
being raised in great numbers. He
said ho had mado hiB report npnti the
British Columbia location, und did
not mind saying that it would be in
the coast climate. Tin's climate exists
both on tho island and mainland, and
there is great rivalry botweon the two
as to which will secure the farm. The
professor says there aro a number nf
suitable sites in the Pacific province,—
Winnipeg Sun.

The Bishop at Kamloops.
The Seiiliiiel contains a very full report of the visit of tho Bishop o!
Westminster to Kamloops.. His lordship held a continuation on Tuesday,
when 4 candidates received the right.
Ou WodnoBduy a conference was held
with the ministers respecting church
work. On Wodncsday evening a reception and conversazione was held in
tlio Court Houso, which mm largely ot-
tended and very successful. During
the evening all address of welcome to
tho bishop and Mrs. Sillitoe waB pre-
Berrteil, to which his lordship mado a
suitable reply. It wns a matter ol
much regret that Mrs. Silhtoo could
not attend tiro reception in cnnBequenco
of indispe&itiun.
Stone Throwers.
Fur a week pnst some men ot boya
hnve been iu the habit ol raining
showers of stonoB overy night on the
houso of Mr. O. M. McNaughten.
Ouo night last week the chicken houso
was raided nnd eleven chickens stolen.
Tho thiovel put tho ehickeni in two
sacks and carried them a short distance, but being evidently alarmed by
something, dropped the ehickeni and
mado off, A neighbor happening
along found the sacks and|returned it
to Mr. McNaughten. The stono
throwing lias become such a nuisance
and annoyance to the inmutea that Mr.
McNaughten was forced to resort to
the police for protection, whom we understand have tho  guilty  parties  in
view.

Arrival ofthe Bishop.
His Lordship tho Biihop of Now
Westminster and Mrs. Sillitoe arrivod
home by tho C. P. R. train to-day.
Tho Ven, Arohdeacon Woods, Rov. C.
Oroucher, Rov. D. Fiennea-Clinton,
undo largo number of othen wero
at station to bid them welcome. The
bishop and hia wifo have been absent
nearly a year in England, and during
his visit Hia Lordship has many timos
appeared in publio at church and secular gatherings. From time to time
the Columbian has reported extracts
from some of his speeches, showing
thot he always had a good word to
speak for British Columbia when a
suitable opportunity occurred. One
of the principal objects of hii visit to
England was to obtain larger financial
aid for carrying on the ohuroh work in
his extensive diocese, which embraces
nearly the whole mainland of British
Columbia. In this, we understand, ho
has met with gratifying success." We
are sorry to learn that Mrs. Sillitoe's
health has been very poor for the last
week, and this unfortunate circumstances has considerably marred tho
gladness of tho home-coming.

From Tort Simpson.
(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
Pout Simpson, Oct. 0.—Tlio Mot-
lakahtlans are still going. The Noll
has just made her second trip to Port
Chester, and ns the commissioners nre
to be up bore in a few dajra it will do-
pend ou the reiult of their work what
will be the course of a large number of
industrious Indians on thii const. The
most exciting event hero for some
timo was the Indian liquor case of
Hay & Jinks whioh came before J udgo
Wuoten. Hay was lined 850 in tho
two cases. This liquor business ii
doing more to diiturb the Indian! than
some people think. When will tho
government bu wise! The sooner it
takes away tho liquor licenses the better will tt be for the coast. The new
church nt Port Essington is going on
well, and will soon be completed. We
had a terrible storm hut Sunday night,
and are now enjoying what might be
called Indian summer.
Police Court.
Before T.C. Atkinson P.M.
Ralph McDonald got drunk on Saturday night and lay down on the railway traok for a quiet snooze, but wua
disturbed by a policeman who provided him with quarters in the lockup
whero he was more comlortable and
less liable to exposure. Ralph was admitted to bail iu tho sum of 85 but us
he did not turn up to answer the
chargo the amount wai forfeited.
Frank Stevens cams in from the
country to enjoy!city lifo for a few days,
but as luck would have it* ho seemed
to enjoy hi. visit too muoh and was
looked up for being a'little too sportive.
Frank did not wish to be locked up
and intimated thut fact to tho police
who however, wore obdurate and the
remit was that it took five men to induce Frank to enjoy the hospitality
of the city for tho night. This morning Stevens deposited 85 as a guarantee
that he Would return ot 10 o'olock and
havo a chat with tbo magistrate, but
ho must havo forgotten all about the
engagmentasho  failed lo turn  up.
Bail forfeited.

Mr. Stcnlionse, M.P.P., Resigns
And Will Join Ihe Army «r Hornirrnn. |
Mr. Maitland StenhoUBc, member
for Comox in tlie provincial legislature,
yesterday tendered tho resignation uf
his seat. It was somewhat of a surprise to tho public when Mr. Stonhouse
was declared the member-elect for llio
northern island district, as his lack of
hearing prevented him from taking an
intelligent part iu the dobatcs, though
he no doubt worked hard during the
last session on his constituents' behalf.
But it will bo a still greater surprise to
know that Mr. Stenhouso has resigned
hiB scat simply and solely for the pur-
Jmso of becoming n member of tho
lloruion community in tho great city
by the Salt Lake. To a representative
of the ColonM, to whom Mr. Stenhouso voluatarily disclosed his intention yesterday, and who witnessed the
signature of the member from Comox
to his resignation, the latter stilted that
ho had not como suddonly to hia
decision, but had boen in communication with tho elders of the Mormon
ohuroh for some time past, and, after
acquainting himself thoroughly with
their teachings, had decided to adopt
them. He also stated that, though
accepting the doctrine of polygamy,
it was not his intention to literally
carry it out. The abovo information
will, undoubtedly, be a startling piece
of information to the opposition, of
whioh he was nominally a member of,
and the result will certainly bo against
them in the election which will necessarily have to be hold to 611 the vacancy. Mr. Stenhouso yesterday proceeded to Nanaimo, and, after transacting business thore, will return to
Comox, settlo up his affairs, and then
take the stops necessary to make him a
full-fledged follower of the tenota of
tho Mormon church.—Co'omrr'.
