current Events nnd Opinions.
Last spring great indignation
was aroused by the exploits of a
few labor vessels from Queensland,
which deliberately kidnapped many
natives of New Guinea and the adjacent islands and took them to
Queensland to work on the sugar
plantations. A number of white
men who were involved in this outrage have recently been sentenced
to long terms of imprisonment and
all the stolen natives except a few
who were willing to remain in
Queensland, havo been sent back to
their houses. The piratical labor
traffic for the benefit of Queensland
and Fiji Islands planters has probably seen its last clays,—N. Y. Sun.

Washington that he had appointed
"Steve" Dorsey one of the three
Commissionow to draw grand aud
petit jurors for the territory, although Dorsey notoriously has
many disputed land claims pending
in the courts, and was thus given
the power to pick out his tools as
jurors. "Upon learning these facts
Mr. Cleveland promptly suspended
Vincent, and his judicial career is
undoubtedly ended. There is no
part of the fedoral service which
needs closer watching than that in
the territories, and an object-lesson
such as the president has given in
the Vincent cuso will do an im-
mimso amount of good.—Nation,
ComimtmattioiMi.-
Tories tell ns that Great Britain
litis taken great steps backward
under free trade during the past
fourteen years. How do they account for the fact that during that
period the average wealth per inhabitant of the country has in
creased by §23? From 1870 to
1884—the great yeurs of depression
according to protectionists — the
carrying power of Great Britain
has doubled through the substitution of steam for sailing tonnage,
From 1850 to 1882—the period of
free trade—tho bunk capital and
deposits of Great Britain have
swollen from £260,000,000 to £840,-
000,000. Notwithstanding the density of population in tho island of
Great Britain, the annual savings
of her peoplo are precisely per head
those of the Americans, While
the average inhabitant of the United States was only fifteen dollars
richer in 1884 than in 1870, the
average inhabitant of Great Britain was .-$140 richer. While the
average inhabitant of Great Britain
was in 1850, only $244 richer than
in 18.10—covering the protectionist
period—tho average inhabitant was
richer in 1884 than in 1850—covering tho freo trade period—by §301
despite the fact that population increased by nine millions iu the
latter period as against threo millions in the former. These facts nil
tell wonderfully in favor of the
free trado policy! — Ottawa Free
Press.
The Stead trial lias issued, as
was expected, in the conviction of
the accused. This result, however,
will neither annihilate Mr. Stead
nor stop tho excitement which has
come to be so largely connected
with his name and doings. Technically, perhaps a conviction wus inevitable. But then even those who
prosecuted seem to givo credit to
the acoused for having been animated throughout by praiseworthy
motives, while the general public is
not at all so churitable in judging
those who set the machinery of law
in motion against them. The Pull
Mall Gazette revelations havo beeu
frightful, but about their substantial truth there is now no two opinions. There may have been on the
part of Mr. Stead sometimes a zeal
that hud in it but littlo discretion,
and the plans ho took and the statements he made could not always be
justified. Surely, however, tlie
great sinners are thoso who, by their
conduct, rendered such revelations
possible, and not the persons who
made them public! If it was
thought that by such a prosecution
and conviction the excitement ovor
the whole matter involved would
speedily die down, we fear the disappointment iu certain quarters will
be great, for the probabilities alt are
that that excitement will become
greater than ever if Mr. Stead is
sent to prison, as he is almost sure
to bo, and if ho muke no effort,
eithor directly or indirectly, to have
either a new trial or any mitigation
of his sentence,—Globe,
The Irish Question.     ■'-
Editor Columbian.—On the Irish
question there appears in your paper
au occasional article that can scarcely
be read with patience or passed ovor
in ailence by anyone familiar with recent events in Ireland. At one time
you picture Ireland as in revolt against
''Parnell who has played the role of
autocrat." Later on, you insinuate
that the Irish people are hopelessly
divided in their politics, for yuu prophesy that if Irish-American politicians
should visit Ireland they would be
embarrassed to find out -'which wine
of the party they ought to asaiat."
The falsehood of that prophecy as well
as the groundlessness of the insinuation were anon exposed by a despatch
which followed stating that ''Parnell's
nominees were unanimously adopted
at all tho county conventions and, in
fact, the Irish leador is at the head of
the only united party now before the
voters of Grent Britain and Ireland."
Thia ought to have shewn you how untrustworthy was the auurce of your information. But thia weok you capped
the climax nnd again echoed the anti-
Irish pnrtisiiin utterances of the Week,
accusing Mr. Parnell and his party of
having "counselled murder" in Ireland,
Had you studied the situation under a
lens prejudiced toucher than the Week
you would know thnt during 1883 the
resources of ihe British government
wore employed—nnd employed in vain
—in endeavoring to prove a connection
between Mr, Parnell's party and the
iuvinciblos or other outrage operators.
Now is it nut too presumptuous for a
pigmy journal in the Northwest to
assert that to be a fact which all the
wealth aud lesuurcea of England's
secret sorvice—though employed at
thc scone of disturbance—fai led to
bring even within shadow uf reasonable suspicion ? Your nrticlei on the
Irish question bear the impress of ig*
noranco of tho main fact*-, and of that
peculiarly obnoxious sort of ignorance
whioh is born of prejudice and nourished on partisanship; which assumes
all the utterances of one party to be
true without inquiring into tho defence
offered by the opposite party. If you
wish to be so informed that, iu futuro,
you may write intelligibly and truthfully on thia subject you should read
the Dublin Freeman's Journal, as well
as the Loudon Times, Thu Dublin
Nation and Weekly News constantly
refute the slanders of the New York
Herald and Montreal Witness; while
tho columns of United Ireland will furnish n suitable antidote to tho perusal
of tho prejudiced nrticlei of the Week.
If you read those juurnala you will be
able to form an independent opinion:
your utterances will then beoome impartial and will bo read with pleasure

Mr. Cleveland apparently believes
thnt the business of a president is
to supervise the administration of
the federal government, and not to
"run" stato elections. Tlie White
Houso hus seldom Imd an incumbent who paid sucli close attention
to tho proper duties of nn executive, and who was so prompt to exercise liis prerogatives when occasion required. There is something
refreshing nhout tho summary wny
in which he brought to book one of
his appointees in Now Mexico last
week. A few months ago the president wns persuaded, upon the
strength of hearty endorsements, to
make William A, Vincent chief
justice of New Mexico, although it
afterword came out thnt Vincent
was concerned in n land controversy
in that territory some time tigo, in
the course of which he wns imprisoned for contempt of court.
On Wednesdny week news reached
The Law or Sevens.
For all who think lightly of Sabbath
rest, these suj-^ubtions have special
force:
Whatever opinion men may havo of
the perpetuity uf Sabbatic laws in the
change of dispensations, man's physical constitution remains unchanged;
and evory law which haa its foundation
and justification in the naturo of
things, is worthy of the most careful
and reverent consideration. They who
violate tho laws of existence must accept thoir penalties.
It is a curious fact that after a man
has overworked and become wearied
and exhausted, from tho neglect of the
appointed times of rest, when at last
he is sinking under disease, and the
frantic struggles of the powers of nature take tliu form of a fever, this same
law of sevens manifests itself iu the
process of restoration. His fever runs
seven days and theu turns; or if nature is not able to recover hersolf at
that point, tho struggle goeB on for
another seven days; and if the fever
does not then turn, It must run another
seven dnys. Fevers do not turn on
the fourth, or fifth, or sixth day. All
the doctors or skeptics in orention cannot mako fevers turn except at the
seventh day. This shows that thn law
of scvoiiB is so wrought into the constitution of man, that he cannot escapo
its control. It is a part of himself;
nnd whethor he believes it or disregards it, lie is still bound by this universal law. The human constitution
is like an eight-day clock. It needs to
be wouud up regularly once n week,
and the day of rest affords tho opportunity of doing it. And any ono who
will study the constitution of mankind,
will find that this law. dividing human
life into periods of one, two, throe,
nnd four sevens of days, is a universal
law, controlling human existence from
its beginning to its end.—Ex,

Saturday Horning, Nov. HI. IH85.
The anti-Oliinese association of
Victoria has been endeavoring to
induce the people to substitute wliite
labor for Ohinese. To that end it
proposes to import a number of
girls from the east or elsewhere who
will be willing to accept situations
in tho country now held by Ohinamen. This is a very practical proposal nnd one that ought to enlist
the sympathy and co-operation of
every British Columbian. There
are hundreds of Chinamen employed
as domestics and operatives in this
province whose places could be filled
more effectively and moro cheaply
by deserving young women, and
employers should be only too glad
to make the exchange. If the anti-
Chinese association is judicious in
its undertaking; it will confer upon
the country a benefit the value of
which cannot be estimated.
V True Sentence.
In the Victoria Colonist of Wednesday a letter appears on the Chinese question in which the following
sentence occurs : "A worse enemy
to the workingmen than John Chinaman is whiskey." The truth of
this remark must be apparent to any
person who has had even moderate
opportunities for observation. The
Chinese evil is obvious enough, but
it is not so obvious as the drink
curse. If all the idle workingmen
in the province were interviewed it
would be found that very fcw-*of
them are men of right principles and
total abstainers. It seldom happens
in this country that a healthy man,
who is willing to work and keeps
away from the saloons, is found
either in idleness or want. Drink
has been the curse of the railway
men, the miners, to loggers, the fishermen, the millmen, and working-
men in every department of industry. If the government proposed
to relieve the country of one of
these two evils, we should unhesitatingly elect to be relieved from
the curse of drink. And yet, whilo
the government imposes a restrictive
tux upon Chinaman, it actually
licenses the greater evil by means
•of which hundreds of our most
valuable Hyqa-WP being-wasted and
wrecked 1
Rnther Muddled.
Although it would be an absolute
waste of time to follow and correct
our local cotemporary in all his
politicu! eccentricities, it may be
profitable now and theu to point
out how utterly inconsistent and
meaningless are some of his assertions. In his issue of last Saturday we find an article on the future
of British Coiumbin. This article
is written professedly to dispel cer
tain misapprehensions which, our
cotemporary declares, exist in the
public mind with respect to this
country. "A confusion of ideas" is
what he proposes to set in order;
but we venture to assert that any
person who peruses the article will
be puzzled exceedingly to comprehend either its purpose or conclusions. Iu the first place the provincial secretary is charged with
issuing pamphlets representing this
country ns a ".veritable paradise for
poor men with smull capital who
would come to farm." The result
of the distribution of these pamphlets, snys our cotemporary, is that
"ii vast number of workingmen and
desiring settlers came to this province to starve." This is certainly a
serious indictment, and if it can lie
sustained by proof, tho provincial
. neeretnry has been guilty of a great
lack cither of judgment or honesty.
But in support of the indictment
mir cotemporary offers no proof at
all. On the contrary, he actually
declares the country to be exactly
the sort of place represented in the
provincial secretary's pamphlet. Listen: "Very few of our people have
any available capital: they came
here poor men and succeeded very
well, aa everyone with industry and
perseverance coming here may do."
Now, if every persevering and industrious man who comes to this
country, although poor, muy succeed
very well, how can our cotemporary
blame the provincial secretary for
inviting immigration, and how cun
it bt) said that "workingmen and
desiring settlers" have oome "to this
province to starve?" Our cotemporary goes on to remark thut those
who have taken up land in the railway belt "up to this time are ignorant as to how or at what price they
ore to obtain their holdings." This
may be true of any person whole
only information upon public questions comes from our cotemporary.
He has always made it appear that
tlio squatters upon lands iu tho railway belt could not know the price
they would be asked to pay for
their holdings, because he supposed
that by making this appear he would
be making capital against the provincial government. It is fortunate, however, that very few of tho
farmers are left to draw their information from so unreliable a source.
The Columbian long ago, and more
than once, pointed out that, by an
order in council, the Dominion government had fixed the prices of
lands in tho railway belt at exactly
the same figures as provincial lands.
Railway lands taken under thc
homestead regulations are fixed at
$1 per acre, and purchased lands nt
$2.50. This arrangement is precisely that which was announced
in the provincial legislature at
the time of passing the settlement bill, and it is surely as
liberal as any person could expect. After again condemning the
criminal folly of "Honest John" for
bringing people here to starve, our
cotemporary says that in this province "a healthy man with any energy
and without capital, or a business
man with capital, can hardly fail to
do well." He then refers at some
length, and in glowing terms, to the
various resources and attractions of
the country, declares that we have
"lots of wealth," and "invites wit])
confidence" all who propose becoming permanent residents to come to
this "real Eldorado." We venture
to say there is nothing in all the
provincial secretary's immigration
pamphlet more flattering to the resources of the province than that
whicli is contained in the article of
our cotemporary, and if the provincial secretary has been guilty of deceiving immigrants, our cotemporary
is equally culpable. But it may be
that the Guardian's discrimination
leads it to the conclusion that nobody ever believes its assertions,
while people would be apt to accept
as true the provincial secretary's
pamphlet. If this is the explanation of our cotemporary's singular inconsistency, it mny not be groundless after all!

Dr. Mclnnes -Made a post-mortem

Sumas, Nov. 13.—Rubber coats and
gum boots have lutely been in grent
demand on account of the continuous
rains. Roads are in a terrible condition, and in some places they uro really
impassable.—The attention of tho customs authorities ought to be called to
tbe lnrge amount of smuggling that
goes on hero from tho boundary. It
is believed thnt enough money cuuld
be collected from duties to pay tbe
salary of a customs officer, and, at uny
rate, tho mt ■ 'bants on this side have a
right to look for protection from illicit
trado.—On the large and well-regulated dairy farm uf Mr. Thos. York, Upper Sumas, yuur correspondent noticed
that tho churning is all done by horse
power, thus doing away the long and
tedious process usually employed. Mr.
York showed your correspondent some
very tine specimens of coal which he
has discovered near his farm.—During
the past year quite a number uf nuw
settlers have come into this settlement,
and all seem tn be prosperous and contented.—The prairie in the vicinity of

of fruit trees. He begins work next
week,—The young people connected
with the Methodist church are going

promised to justify the Methodists in
undertaking the ereotion of a church
here in the spring.—Mr. Matthew Hall
has just finished a large and commodious barn on his place.
Down Grade-
while the soldiers were quartered
at Seattle ostensibly to protect tho
Chinese against outrage, a representative of the Pout put this question to a
good looking young felluw iu the ranks:
"How is that bu many smart looking
young mon enlist in time of ponce? It
can hardly be from patriotio motives,
and one would not think that $13 per
month would be a sufficient inducement."
"You are right," said the boy in
blue. "A great many who enlist are
Germans, Irish, or foreigners of some
kind, who take tu the nrmy ns nu onsy
means of making a living, but in nine
cases out of teu when you find an
American boy enlisting in time of
peaco you can put it down thnt he has
been in somo trouble ur disgraced himself, and joins the army to hide from
the world. Now, take my caso, for
instance. My parents are well-to-do
people in St. Louis, Mo. Two years
ago I was salesman in a wholesale produce establishment, and getting nlontf
finely. By prudence and economy 1
had saved up from my salary several
hundred dollars, nnd was engaged to
marry a splendid young lady. Shortly
before wo weru to have been married
I took hor homo from the theater, nnd
on my wny home I atepped into n
saloon with a friend to get a cigar.
In the back room there wus a kono
and faro game running. I went in to
Bee the men gamble, and nfter looking
on for a while I put down a bet un the
aco and it won. I put down another but
and it won again. That evening |
quit 850 winner. For three nights in
succession I played and won, nnd
finally I imngiued thnt fani was n game
invented to enrich me, and that 1 hnd
struok the only true system to bent it.
Finally, however, tho tables turned,
and I found that my system could lose
as well as win. But to mnke a long
story Bliort, one week nfter I had put
down my first bet I hnd lost every dollar I hnd in the world, my watch and
chain, and everything of value I possessed. My employers learned thnt I
had been gambling and dislmrged mo.
Overwhelmed with shame and disgrace
I borrowed onough money from my
brother to take mo to Cincinnati.
While there I became very despondent,
and had I uot been a coward I would
hnvo committed suicide. But two
things wero loft for me to do—suicide
or to enlist—and uf the two evils I
clmae what I considered the lesser, and
joined the army, enlisting for five
years, and but for disgracing my
mother, whom I dearly love, I would
be tempted to desert. Some of tho
boys, when they get tired of army life,
steal some little thing, aud get court-
martialed and 'bob-tailed,' or kicked
out of the service. Theft is the meanest thing a soldier can be guilty of."
The story of this young man's downfall is virtually that of thousands. It
began in one of those saloons where,
under authority or a government license, a thousand snares aro always
Bet to catch the unwary.
Grand Jury's Presentment.
At tho late assize court the grand
jury mado the following presentment
to his lordship Mr. Justice McCreight:
May it pleaao your lordship:—We,
tho grand jury now in session at the
fall assizes of 1885, desire to present
for your consideration various matters
whioh affect tho peace nnd welfare of
this oity.
It must bo apparent to yuur lordship
and all other persons having duties to
pet form in thia court house, that it is
exceedingly deficient in conveniences
and appointments; it is much too small
to meet tho wants of the rapidly increasing population. Tho sheriffs
office is used aa a grand jury room and
is not tho proper place. Tho sheriff
ihould have accosa to his books at all
times, and the grand jury should hnve
a room where they could dischui-go
their duties without inconvenience or
interruption. It is u uuwt humiliating sight to see the presiding judge
in the effort to reach his room, com-
nulled to push his way through a motley crowd of Indians and Cinnamon,
such aa congregate in the body of the
court house. The ventilation is defective, and as a result the atmospliuru
is poisonous. The removal nf the
prison to new quarters will vncate thu
ground on which the old prison stands,
thus affording abundant spneo for a
new courthouse uf modern design and
of sufficient size.
Tho grand jury visited Ihu prison
aud inspected the prisoners, the food
and the clothing. Nn fault can bu
found with tho genoral management
of the institution: the food is whole-
suniu and the clothing is clean and
warm, and constant employment is
provided for thu prisonurs. The condition of the whole placo reflects great
credit on Mr. Moresby and those associated with hiin. No complaint was
mndo by any prisoner, although each
was asked if he had any complaint to
make.
The Roynl Columbinn Hospital wns
also inspected by us. Thu comfort uf
the eighteen patients is amply provided fur ns far as tliu wretched condition uf the building and grounds will
admit.   Defective drainage—or ruthcr
tho absence of nil drainage— is a
source of great danger to tho inmates
and to Ihu huge population residing iu
the vicinity. It is now almost a quar-
ter of a century since the hospital wus
erected; lilth has been accumulating
ever since on the premises; the ground
in saturated wiih impurities which
must be injurious to the unfortunate
pntients. Under sueh conditions the
best dull of tho physician is neutralized and the object for which this
benevolent and deserving institution
wus erected completely destroyed.
Persons living in the immediate neighborhood of the hospitnl hnve n right
to expect und Bhould insist on n speedy
abatement of the nuisance. Money in
abundance is readily provided for the
construction of rail wny s to this city;
thu material and cotnniui'ciul interests
of the pluce nre woll protected, and it
does seem to tho grand jury thut tho
health nnd safety of thu citizens residing between the hospital and ihe
river is of equal importance and should
receive immediate attention* The
supply of wholesome water is totally
inadequate; u smuU woll into which
tho surface water drains is tho only
source of supply. Great inconvenience and suffering wore experienced
from this defect during the Bummut-
months. Tanks should be constructed
nnd pure water provided at onco.
It is with pleasure we turn from the
hospital to the lunatic asylum, which
hus also received a close inspection.
It reflects the greatest credit on Dr.
Bentley, Mr. Phillips, nnd ull tho
others associated with them in tlie
management. It is nn honor to tlio
province, and must be n source of
comfort to tho friends of the insane.
It appears from thu evidence advanced nt tho trial uf thu convict
O'Connor, that tho penitentiary hns
beou visited but once in seven years
by tho inspector of prisons, and that
but oue day was devoted to its inspection. This serious neglect is entirely
inconsistent with good government,
and exceedingly unfair to the inhabitants of this provinco, who aro more
immediately concerned. Situated ub
we are, some thousands of miles from
tho seat of government, it is almost
impossible to curry out the spirit nnd
letter of the law governing penitentiaries, and wo therefore recommend
that tho laws bB amended as follows:
"That the penitentiary be submitted to periodical inspection by the
grand jury of this city. That a provincial inspector be appointed who
Bhall inspect the penitentiary once in
six mouths, or oftoner it necessary,
nnd make verified reports to the minister of jn..lice, and to the lieut.-governor of tlio province, That an immediate mv jstigatiun be instituted for
the purpose of ascertaining the truth
or falsehood of O'Connor's accusations,
and if found tn bt true, to apply the
needed remedy; if false, to clour the
officials of all blame. And that prisoners be provided with counsel and
that witnesses be examined on oath.
Finally, thu grand jury firmly but
respectfully requests your lordship tu
cause copies of this presentment to be
forwarded to the minister of justico
and tho provincial government of British Columbia."

The Chinese.
Editoi: CoiiUJauMH.—If your column,
will permit, please allow mo to vcntili to
a few thoughts which oftimes pass in r. ■
view wheu this vexed Chinese question
happens to obtriid*1, either here or elsewhere. Whilst the most humane admit
that tlieir presenco is au evil, in ao far as
they monopolize tho labor by which the
great bulk of thc people earn a living,
and whilst all seem anxious to get rid of
the plague, yet very fow would be willing to remove tho causo of the evil. No
ovil exists without a cause. Suffering ia
Bure to follow the violation of sonic law,
natural or moral; nil laws governing our
physical and moral natures were intended
for our happiness, on condition that wo
as free agents did not violate them.
What laws have the people of the Paoifio
coast violated thnt they Bhould be tormented with this Chinese plague ! The
best way to niuwer this question is first
to ascertain in what respects their presence plagues us, The principal grievances aro: 1st, they monopolize labor;
2nd, thoy corrupt our morals. With
respect to the first charge, Mr, China
man must plead guilty, for the simple
reason ilut they arc to be fouud on our
gold fields, on uur public works, ou mir
Farms, iu our factories, ia our -aunilricH,
in our kitchens, in our -limi--; rooms, tu
fact all over our premises—liko the frogd
of Kgypt. Hut „ by aro ilicy to ba found
filling the places that might bo filrd by
our own .,«. pie? The docUiut- of the
survival of the i 'test would acquit tne
Chinaman ami condemn our own peoplo.
Why did they take tho place of tho wliite
laborer on our railroad! Bccauso whisky
was allowed to demoralize the whito
laborer. Why do they fill the factories T
—Whisky I Why do thoy monopolize
field laborI-AVhtakyl Why do they
fill Our houses like frogs?— Laziness! Wo
Anglo'Saxons are the law-breakers, and,
therefore, we sutler. The '2nd charge is
thnt they corrupt our morals: lot us seo.
A few days ago a celestial was brought
to court on a charge of keeping n disorderly house in town. t bean! a young
man sny thnt tn his knowledge there
wero nil sorts of vi.e practised iu the
den. Ami yet ho got ofl to practice his
hellish business npacn by paying a small
fine. But theae dens of destruction wero
hore before Chlnniuen came here; thuy
arc only imitating our vices. No long as
the government, whether it be Dominion
or provincial or municipal, will grant a
licence, either directly or indirectly* for
tho manufacture of criminals, bo' long
will Providence punish n» as we deserve.
Whilst wo arc being punished by the
presence of Chinamen, and whilst 'many
of them nre being corrupted by our cor*
nipt habits, yet iiiuiiy of them are being
fitted to be tho means of regenerating
their own people. All things work together for good. J, K,
Mr, C. IC. Kiughis, llcanisvlllu, writes:
UA customer who triod a bottlo of Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
says it is tho best thing hn ever used; to
quote his own words, 'It just seems to
touch the spot ulYci-ti'il.' About a year
ago he had au attack of bilious fever, and
was afraid he wns in for nnother, whon I
recommended this valuable modicinc with
such hnppy tesnlts,"
nicipality, which was appropriated to tlie
upper Serpentine road; aud it will be
seen by your issue of the 24th ult. that
Coun. Cann was authorized to call for
tenders, and let the contract for the
work to the lowest bidder. It was found,
howeyor, at the meeting that a contract
had been signed with aneigliborof Coun.
Cann, whose tender wai IiO cts, per rod
higher than the lowest tender. The
next lowest tender had also been passed
over, liy these means the settlement
has lost over 5>0 rods of road. But this
is not nil, for thc adjacent settlors have
promised subscriptions to tho amount of
$ 100, or Its equivalent in labor at the
same rate as the accepted tender. This
sum equals 82 rods, but if the lowest
tender Imd been accepted its equivalent
would have been 92 rods, so another 10
rods of road must be added to the loss of
the municipality, But Coun. Cnnn's exhibition of favoritism docs not end with
putting over $40 into the contractor's
pocket. Since the reoeipt of tenders the
specifications were altered, requiring a 3-
ft. ditch instead of a 4-ft. This alteration, which should have been managed
for the benefit of the settlement, is still
further lhat of tho contractor, who must
be wide awake to the advantage of having a "friend in council." But what the
government, when the 9330 is nsked for,
ami the victimized taxpayers, at the next
municipal election, will say, remains to
be seen. An attempt to induce the Surrey council to right matters proved futile,
that body by a resolution ratifying Coun.
Cann's action, ho himself voting in his
own favor. It but remains to be added,
i'i ordor to illustrate the manner in whicli
public affairs are managed over here,
that fivo settlers were found to approve
Couu. Cauti's action and to petition the
council in his favor. It is time a healthy
public opinion were formed to stamp out
these corruptions. Sunnier.
[Wo are inclined to think that if nll
the facts were known our correspondent
would find there were reasons why the
lowest mul next tenders were passed
ovet. If the specifications were altered,
as stated, without calling for fresh tenders or securing n corresponding reduction in the price per rod; we do not see
how such an act ean be justified. But it
is fair that judgment Bhould be suspended until the other side has a chance to
bo heard. Tho action of Mr. Cann has
been ratified by the council, which would
hardly have been done if it had been as
crooked as our correspondent seems to
suppose.—En.]
It is a Hemakkable Fact that Ur.
Thomas' Eclectrie Oil is as good for internal as external use, For disease of
the lungs and throat, and for rheumatism, neuralgia, crick in the back,
wounds and sores, it is the best known
remedy, and much trouble is Bavod by
having it always on hand. Jacob Loock*
man, Buffalo, says he lias been using it
for rheumatism. He had such a lame
bnck thnt he could do nothing; but one
bottlo entirely cured him.

LosnoN, Nov. 11.—Argument was begun beforo the privy council to-day on
the application of the Canadian government tor leave to appeal from the judgment of tho supreme court of Canada delivered on the 12th of January last, in
which it was declared that the Dominion
Liquor License Act of 1883 and an aot to

wero ultra vires of the legislative authority of tho parliament of Canada, except
such portions of them as relate to the
issuo of vessel nnd wholesale licenses and
tho carrying into effect of tho provisions
of the Canada Temperance Act of 1878.
Tho hearing of the ease will probably
occupy three days. It is boing argued
before a strong court, consisting of the
Chancellor, Lords Monkswcll, Hobhouse,
and FHigerald, Sir Montague Smith, Sir
Barnes reacook nnd Sir Richard Couch.

Tiiobaw's war vessel. Tho capture was
ptfjoted under the guns of Clutterback
fort, after n shovt fight. One of the
British officers was wounded.
Rinoooh, Nov. 16.—In the fight with
the war vessel belonging to King Thebaw, reported yosterday, the fire from
tho British caused 200 of tho crew of the
Burmese vessel to jump overboard. The
British then boarded tlie vessel and pro

In order, to get the benefit of timo,
which Is so necessary in tho healing of

uf now roots, the trees should be taken
up from the nursery rows in the fnll,

so deep that they will ho beyond tho
reach of frost during thu winter
months. In Bitch a position, the healing prudes! will proceed slowly, but
surely, and by thu time the frost is out
of the ground in spring, ths roots on
carefully lieeleil-in, or buried trees,
will have commenced to throw out
new rootlets, and wheu placed in their
final position, they will push earlier

A nn her dry placo should he selected for burying the roots of trees, because, if wntcr settles about their roots,

Toronto Exhibition.
THE DOMINION PIANO & ORGAN CO.
Speaking of the great ceutral exhibi-
bftion opened ut Toronto on the 10th
Sept., the Toronto Globe says:
An object of special attention, which
by very reason of its prominence on the
grounds cannot escape the attention of
the most casual and careless observer, is
thc pavilion of the Dominion Organ Company, This is n separate building but a
little distance from the south east of the
Main Building. This pavilion must be
about 50 feet by 40 feet, with a porch or
railed passageway all around it extra. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, comprising
fully one-third of its height in windows,
and announces to all In broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that company, and
that Joseph Ruse, of 68 King-street
West, represents the company. Inside
no pains have been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No one should visit tho Exhibition without going through this pavilion, there he will find a little paradise
of music. Here are decorations, handsome pictures of the Dominion factory
and of the present store room of Mr.
Ruse, and above all, pianos and organs
of the most artistic and unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, and a splendid tribute to the
genius and skill of our Canadian manufacturers. Pianos and organs of every
style and artistic design are found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, satin-wood with walnut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and beryl walnut, A double manual
and pedal bass organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces the visitor at the extreme
end as he enters this pavilion. For company are organs of every style and design to suit the purchaser. The Company also exhibit with the degreo of
triumph and merit the fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at a Grand
National Exhibition held there the Company had just carried off the first prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is certainly remarkable, though
when tho rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is cout idcred,
not so remarkable as at first might aeem.
Tho Company's success in honors, home
aud international, is something remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive und will amply repay
a personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized thc high compliment he paid
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
at the opening of the London Fair. In
his address from tho platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impetus Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited as an illustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of the
Dominion Organ and Piano Company
there. He said that tliis Compnny (the
Dominion Organ and Piano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
there, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competitors, from England, France, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and acquirements in musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of tlieir ablest and best
musicians, had declared further that the
instrument-* of this company were superior to any they had ever seen, heard, or
examined. With sueh a compliment
from such a source, iu addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content.

seSOtc "A Offscouring."
"Well, yes, ma'am, I have stole!"
"Why, John!"
"You asked me, didn't you?"
"Yes, 1 asked you," the mission
teacher ropliod, a sad, almost disgusted
expression upun her sweet, young fnce.
"What did you ask me for, if you
didn't want me to tell yuu? I could a
lied," the boy went on in a stolid sort
of way, and yet with a ring of fooling
in his voice.
"No, you couldn't, Johnny," the
teacher answered with a smile,' 'because
you promised me that you would always toll the truth to me."
"Well, I didn't «o back on it, did I!"
"No, Johnny, Have you any objection to tolling mo how often you
have taken things that didn't belong
to you?"
"Mebbo I can't reinomberthem nil,"
tho boy replied. "I nover lifted anything particular. Once, whon the old
woman where I hang out got sick and
cried a blue streak for oranges, and
nobody had tho money to trot thom, I
asked the old covo that kept the grocery
store to trust mo for a couple till next
day. He wouldn't do it, and that night
I stole six from him."
"Why, Johnny!"
"Why didn't ho lot me havo 'om
thon?" tho boy wont ori doggedly. "I'd
paid, 'causo I said I would. Anyhow,
the old woman got woll oil' them
ornnges." *
"Then you are not sorry you took
thein?" the teacher inquired.
"Well, tho old woman had to havo
thom oranges, and somebody had to
got them for her."
Tlio teacher's face was very grave,
and ns hor companion looked up ho
saw the tears in her eyes, a sight which
had n curious effect upon him.
"Don't mnko me tell you any more,
please, ma'am," he said, dropping his
eyes, while his faco flushed scarlet. "I
ain't nothing but a ofl'scouring, anyhow, nnd it ain't no good to fret nbout
what I do, I wns kinder dragged into
this place, else I'd never bother you,"
"What name did you call yourself?"
tho teacher inquired. "I didn't understand you."
"Grnnny Leeds always said I was an
offscouring, and so I am."
"What is an offscouring, Johnny?"
"Oh! tho leavings of something thnt
ain't no good."
"Granny Leeds, ob you call her, waB
very much mistaken ubout yourself,
Johnny," the teacher replied. "You
are not au offscouring, but ono of God's
own children, and Ho is giving you a
chance to make something of yourself.
How much do you think the things
ure worth that you have taken, in all,
Johnny?"
"Them oranges were worth 4 cents
apiece when I took them; that's 24;
and then two loaves of bread I lifted
for two fellows that frosse their foet Inst
winter, and a mackerel to make the
bread go down. It's awful tough to eat
bread with nothing on it; and thon n
buse ball worth 50 cunts, and all them
things would make near hand to a dollar,   I don't remember anything else."
"Well, Johnny, I shall givo you a
dollar, and I want you to go to those
placeB and pay for nil those things."
"Then I'll have to own up," the boy
interrupted.
"Wouldn't you feel bettor to confess, Johnny?" the young lady inquired,
not a littlo troubled at the effect of
her wards,
For a moment tho boy seemed lost
in thought, and then lifting a frank
face to his companion, snid:
"I ain't never folt perticlor bad about
any of them things, cept the base ball,
and that 1 could a' done without, but
if you say so, Miss Lee, I'll give tho
wholo thing away, only as I ain't lifted
anything lately, and don't mean to
again, thuy would suspicion me, nnd
make mu out a thief when I ain't no
such thing. Don't you think it would
do, ma'tun, if I dropped tho money in
thom places so they'd bo sure tu find
it? If you don't think so I'll blow tho
whole thing if it takes mo to the
islnnd."
"Whnt will you ilo, Johnny, if somebody needs bread nud oranges and you
haven't got nny money to buy them
with?"
"That's a stickler, inn'ani, I dunno."
"And it wouldn't bo strange if something of thut kind wero to happen auy
tlay."
"No, ina'nm. Thero is something
putty generally tu pay with tho folks I
know."
"Well, Johnny, I will tell you what
to do,1, sho replied. "Horo is my
curd, and wheu any of your acquaint*
nnces nre in trouble I wish you wuuld
come directly to me; aud if anything
in nmiss with you nt any timo, be suro
and send n messenger. You hnd better como up, to-morrow, unyway,
Johnny, for 1 want to givo you somo
warm clothos, and then it will be easy
fnr you to find the placo next timo."
Johnny hung Ins head. The kindness had overpowered him, nnd not a
word could he speak.
"I didn't moan tu hurt yuu, Johnny," the tender-hearted toachor hurried to say. "You are willing I should
help you, are you not?"
"I guess you had better let mo git
mnv, Miss Lee," tho boy replied rather
huskily; "you cuuld knock uio down
with nu eyowinkor. You needn't
worry about my remembering ali you
have said; but just nuw I'm all broko
up."
"And I can trust you, Johnny?" the
lady inquired.
"It's a go, mn'ain," tho boy answered tiimply,
MJbs Luo tucked a 81 bill in his
hand, und Johnny hurried out of the
building.
it took considerable tact and ikill,
ns well as time, fur the boy tu satiBfuc*
' turily manage tho business which his
leachor had provided tho money for.
Fur instance, tho grocer from whom
ho had "lifted" tho oranges had suld
nut tu another, and Johnny was obliged to hunt him up. He was at Inst
found, poor nnd ill, nnd tho boy without n moment's hesitation confessed
tha thef1* and produced thu money.
"I guess I can mako it 30 cents," he
Baid, "aud that'll be a little for interest. If I wouldn't like to give 85 then
yuu mny shoot me for n crow,"
Thu ex-grocer wns so surprised nt
Johnny's confession nnd subsequent
generosity that he shook tho boy's
hand heartily and invited him to step
iu again soon, whicli tho lad as heartily promised tu do.
By nightfall these "bnck debts," as
Johnny naively called them, woru settled, and then, after n scanty meal,
the boy started out with evening
papen.
About a quarter to 8 ho hnd sold
out, and then ab fast an his foot would
carry him, he hurried to tho neighborhood of the Academy of Music to
watch tho people go into the building.
It was opera night, and this was one
of Johnny's greatest pleasures, and
bo with his back to tho lump-punt, ho
gave himself up to the delight uf
watching the throng. Johnny wondered what it would be like to drive around
in luxurious oarriugei, and hava plenty
of money tu spend on fino olothes.
He thought of the brond nnd burring
he had eaten for his supper, and tried
to imagine what it would be liko
to have turkey and cranberry sauce
every Christmas. Johnny had turkey
and cranberry sauco for his dinner,
and he knew by experience how nice
they were. Ho had ridden in an ambulance with n friond of hia-—a newsboy, who had boon run ovor by an express wagon, and this was the nearest
approach to a carriage rido ho had ever
enjoyod.
Ho wondered, as ho watched those
happy, gaily-dressed people, why it
was that somo people had all thoy
wanted whilo others were cold and
hungry, and sometimes starved to
death. This was not the first timo thnt
Johnny had boen perplexed with auch
thoughts, but they had never mado
lum feel quito so uncomfortable as ou
this occasion. Ho called to mind the
warm underclothing and tidy jacket
and pants which Miss Leo had given
him that day, and triod to comfort
himself with tho thought that thoro
was one person in tho world who cared
for him.
There hud boen a honvy fall of snow
that day, and as Johnny, still absorbed
with his thoughts, started to cross the
stroot, ho saw something sparkle in the
snow nt the side of the crossing. Thero
had beon a rush of carriai/os, nnd a few
hnd not been able to pull up to the
curb, As ho picked it up he saw that
it was an ornament in the shape uf a
cross, and studded with diamonds,
Johnny knew they were shiners, as
ho culled thom, as soon as he looked at
them, so with his heart in his throat ho
tucked tho precious jewel in his pocket,
still holding it firmly in bis hand.
Johnny's ambition was to start a collee
and cako establishment where the
newsboys could bo entertained nt low
rates. For more than a yonr he had
nursed this object, and hero was a
chance to carry it into execution.
There wero nine stones in the cross.
Disposing of one at a time to avoid
suspicion, here wns money enough to
last him yours and years, ho told himsolf. It puzzled him to know where
ho could keop tho shiners, for thero
wasn't a soul among his acquaintances
whom ho Jure trust with tho secret.
Nut until he hud crept into his poverty-
stricken bod, with his treasure carefully hidden among the straw, did the
thought occur to him that ho ought to
try and find an owner for it. Then
followed a hard battle between the
natural honesty of the lad and his very
natural desire for creature comforts.
Tho person who could wear a gold
thing like that "chock full of shiners,"
ho said to himself, must have money
onough to buy moro shiners. Hero he
was, cold and hungry, with no prospect
bofore him but to bo always hungry, if
not always cold; and hore wore these
"shiners" which would set him up in
business and give him a chance to help
tho boys. Why should he find tho
ownor of the cross when he had nothing and the owner had everything?
This fight continued until it- was time
for the lad to start for the morning
papers, All through the busiest part
of tho forenoon the battlo still raged,
aud tho newsboy's thoughts were so
occupied with his new-found riches
that ho almost forgot to attend to his
customers. About half-past 10, as ho
passed City Hull park, he noticed a
gentleman, nnd as he heard tho words
'diamond cross" spoken, Johnny slackened his pace and listened.
"The diamonds were aU of tho first
water," tho gentleman said: "it wns a'
gift to my wifo from her father and
Bho is terribly cut up by tho loss. 1
don't suppose we shall ever find it."
"You will advertise it, won't you ?"
his companion inquired.
"Oh, of course," the gentleman replied, "but more than likely it has
fallen iuto dishonest hands, and unless
the reward is equal to the value of the
diamonds wc need never expect to seo
them."
When the gentlomen separated tho
one who was interested in the diamonds entered tho city hall, and after
a littlo inquiry, Johnny discovered that
this gentleman held a very honorable
offico in tho city department, Afier
finding this out the lad tuok a turn
round tho park to think it oyev once
more.
"Grnnny Leeds said I was a offeodur-
ing, and Miss Lee says I ain't," he argued tu himsolf. "If I keop theso
shiners granny'II bo right and Miss
Lee'l bo wrong. She said tho Lord
was giving ine a chance to make something of myself. Well, now, tho question is, am I or am I uot n offscouring ?
If I keep thoso shiners I am, if I give
thom up, I ain't. Well, I ain't," and
with theso words on his lips, Johnny
started for the gentleman's office.
Nothing daunted he entored, und presented himself at the desk.
"Some of your folks havo lost something, ain't they," he asked,
"Thoy have," Baid the gentleman.
"Will your honor tell me what it ia
like?" t
'It is u gold cross sot with diamonds," nnd the gentleman described
thc relative position of tho stones.
"It was lost either in the Academy of
Music lust night, or on the way from
that place."
Johnny's coat was off in a twinkling,
and with a rip nt tho stitches which
cuntiued the troasuro, ho took it out,
and put on his coat ngain. "I supposo
tlint is it," he snid, handing it to tho
geutloinan. "I wanted to keop tho
shiners awful had," ho continued.
"They'd a set mo up in businoss, thom
shiners would, but you see I couldn't
be such a oll'scouring na that, though I
have boon trying to be a thief all night
long. If I wero your folks," ho wont
on, "I'd get n stronger string to hold
on thom Bhiuors for fear they'd bo
gono fur guod next timo."
"Whnt is your name?" tlio gentleman  inquired, as the lad, with his cup
in  his  hand, stood modestly beforo
him.
"John Roaney," tho boy replied,
"Havo you u father and n mother?"
was the noxt question.
"Nobody, yer honor, but myself."
"Wliich would you  prefer to do,
Johnny," tho gantloman next inquired,
"go into business or go to school?"
"Well, I wuuld rather go to school,
ten to ono, but there ain't nny ahow
for that,"
"Wo will see," said tho gentleman.
"Will you come into my office, Johnny,
until I see what is best to bo dono ?"
"Yes, air," Johnny ropliod, tho tours
starting tu his oyes.
"I shall want you to go home with
me in nn hour or two, and givo my
wife her diamonds, and see what she
thinks of you."
"All right," said Johnny, brushing
nwny the tears, Anything to do now,
yer honor?'1
Thu following Sunday Johnny wont
to tho mission sohool for the last timo,
and in such clothes thut Miss Leo
hardly knew him. Tho grateful boy
told his toachor all that had happened,
and concluded na follows:
"I am going away to school to-morrow, and if I've got the learning stuff
in me I can go to college; but Miss
Lee, if it had not been for you and
God, I should have been a offscouring
all the days of my life."—Christian
