Wednesday Evening, Augasl ■■• "ft!-
The Winnipeg Free Press says
that Philip Giirnetiu, who wus sentenced to 7 years1 imprisonment for
complicity in the rebellion of 1885,
was released a few days ago, imd
will shortly leave for tho provinco of
Quebec. He purposes writing a history of tho rebellion from the stand
point of the rebel. As he acted as
secretary for Louis Riel after the
break-up of Jackson's mind until the
Wind up of the rebellion at Batoche,
he will be able to present the other
side of the story better than any
other person. Since his release he
has been purchasing the published
accounts of the rebellion, including
Mrs, Delaney nnd Mrs. Gowanlock's
accounts of their capture.
Mrs. Livingstone, of New York
city, recovered $25,000 in the courts
about a year ago from a rich man
who had done her a wrong. Now
she naturally complains because her
lawyers have taken $23,000 of this
sum for their services. Three Milwaukee lawyers once put in a bill
of $25,000 for services in settling
an estate worth $32,000. Judgo
Drummond at once administered to
these cormorants the following stern
rebuke: "Gentlemen, you consider
yourselves good lawyers. How
muoh more are your services worth
to your clients than mine to the
peoplel You have charged $25,000
for sixty days' service. Oould you
not be content, each of you, to toko
my pro rata for the same timet
These charges are infamous. They
are such as men who are scoundrels
and thieves at heart would make.
Tliis charge of $12,000 is cut down
to $1,200; tliose of $5,000 each to
$500. Repeat such a piece of rapine in this court, und I will disbar
every one of you." If every judge
was as bold and upright as Judge
Drummond the people would not
have their scalps taken as frequently by shysters as at present. A
bold, upright judge has a vast power
in his hands to repulse these legal
pirates who deem a client only a
pigeon to be plucked. In New
York city it is notorious that rich
estates hnve been reduced to penury
by the robbery of tho lawyers who
have played the same part to the
rich estate that u starfish does to
the succulent oyster; he never lets
go until he has eaten the oyster aud
left the heirs tho shells. We are
sorry to say that Drummond, who
dropped like a pile-driver on the
skulk of those Wisconsin shysters,
who proposed to suck- the oyster out
of an estate and turn over the
empty shells to- their clients, has retired to privatepructice.—Oregonian.
The movement which is on foot
to present the Prince of Wales with
a testimonial is one that must command very general approval and cooperation. In no part of tho exhibition is it more generally recognized than in the Canadian section
that the success of the whole display is very largely due to the unwearied interest wliich His Royal
Highness has manifested in tho movement from the very beginning. 'Die
resolution adopted at the meeting of
the Royal Commission at the residence of Earl Granville on Wednesday last week, on the proposition of
Lord Iddesleigh, seconded by Sir
diaries Tupper, read as follows:
"That tlio eminent services of His
Royal Highness the Prince of Wales,
in the promotion of the Colonial
and Indian Exhibition, ought to be
marked in some fitting manlier;
that the members of the Royal and
of the Colonial Commissions believe
that the gentlemen who have been
connected with the work, both in
the colonies and in India, would de
sire to share in the public upprecia
tion of His Royal Highness's ser-
' vices; and it is accordingly considered that a piece of plate, commemorative of the exhibition and of thc
great interest which His Royal
Highness has practically evinced in
itl success, should be obtained for
presentation to hiin." 'As an outcome of this resolution a.subscrip-
tion list has been opened both here
and in the colonies and' India for
the purpose of tho presentation, It
is properly desired that the participation in this public tribute to his
Royal Highness should be as widespread as possible, and in order that
every opportunity may be given to
all to share in it, the highest amount
that any ono person may subscribe
is limited to two guineas, though
any smaller sums will be gladly received. The matter is one tlmt
needs nn commendation to all those
directly or indirectly interested in
the Canadian section of the exhibition. It will be strango indeed if,
Canada, who is deriving and will,
derive so much permanent benefit
from the exhibition, does not figure
to her credit in the subscription list.

in the Northwest expedition last
year, writes to the proas complaining of tlie manner in which the services of his force ure referred to in
the militia report. No credit nt nil
is given to tlie very gallant exploits
of Strange's command,'who were
among the first to march to the relief of Edmonton, and whose conduct throughout the campaign was
such as to entitle them to uracil
gratitude. (Jen. Strange thinks the
facts relating to his company were
purposely suppressed because of
personal animosity on the part of
the minister of militia, nnd he points
out thnt n part of his own official
report Jias been altogether omitted
from the minister's general report to
parliament. We can scarcely believe that a minister of militia
would so far forget hi.-j obligations
and duties us to sutler personal animosities to influence his official acts,
but the complaint of fieri. Strange
is serious enough to deserve notice.
It will be very unfortunate if public
distrust creeps into the administration of tho militia department.
Boycotting; n Itnllway.
In the United States courts boycotting lias been declared an indictable offense, and some of the
people who hnve made use of this
dangerous weapon are now suffering
the penalty of an illegal act. But
what the common people are prohibited from doing, some Washington politicians purpose that the
United States government shall do.
The proposal is that an order shall
be passed preventing the Grand
Trunk railway from carrying bonded
cars through the United States, as
it is now doing. The Grand Trunk,
as every one knows, is it Canadian
rnilway, built and maintained by
Canadian and British capital, but
with its termini at Boston or Portland in the east and Chicago in the
west. This railway carries an immense quantity of American freight,
and has long been among the most
successful through routes betweon
Chicago and the Atlantic. The
freight goes through without transfer. At Sarnia it crosses the river
on an immense steam ferry, and at
Montreal it recrosses on Victoria
bridge. If the road was forced to
unload its ears 'upon crossing the
boundary line, it could not compete
with other through lines, and would
be forced out of the through business—and ihis is evidently the object of the proposul. This is a new
fonn of retaliation. Because Canadians refuse to surrender the fishery
privileges secured to them by treaty,
the Americans propose practically
to exclude Canadians from carrying
American pi-oduce. It may lie very
annoying to tlie Americans to find
themselves shut out from our fisheries, but they seem to forget that
the treaty under authority of which
the exclusion has taken place is a
positive document that has stood on
the international law books for 68
years, and that it is no new regulation. During the existence of the
Washington Treaty, in as far as it
related to the fisheries, Americans
were permitted to enjoy certain
special privileges in Canadian waters; but theso clauses of tbe Washington Treaty have become inoperative at the instance of the United
States government, and tho special
privileges no longer exist. But the
people have manifested a disposition
to retain the privileges which they
voluntarily surrendered. They occupy tho position of a man who has
rented an estate and proposes to retain possession of it after giving
notice that tlie lease has expired.
But the project of boycotting the
Grand Trunk will not be a success.
Tlie Americans cannot very well
dispense with the services of a road
which carries such large quantities
of their produce both east and west,
and the Chicngo Inter-Ocean very
aptly compnres the proposed boycotting with the action of the man
who cut oft' his own nose to spite
his face. It points out, moreover,
that not only Chicngo but the entire west is "under very especial
obligation to the Grand Trunk for
its part in furnishing cheap transportation for western grain, livo
stook, and dressed meat," But if
the TJuited States proposes to hoy.
cott Canadian railways, Canadians
may retaliate and lioycott American- lines operating through the
Dominion. It's a poor game at
which two cannot play, and in tliis
contest we shall not be surprised if
Americans get the worst in the
long run.

Sir John's Reception.
A meeting of the committees appointed to arrange for a suitable re-
caption to Sir John Macdonald upon
his arrival in this city was held last
ovening in the council chamher, M-tyur
Dickinson in the chair. His worship
read a telegram from Mr. Pope, Sir
John's private secretary, intimating
the intention of thu premier to arrive
at 0 p. in. on Friday and to leave again
on Saturday afternoon, The news,
whioh had previously been circulated
through the medium of the Daily Columbian, was not less unfavorably
commented.upon at the meeting than
outside of it, and many were in favor
of uu demonstration of honor to the
premier. Others, among whom was
Mr.. Jas. Cunningham, suggested that
the reception tako a quiet form by the
committee simply presenting the civio
address and receiving the reply at
some suitable time and place on Saturday, and without further display or
attention to the chieftain, while Mr.
Homer contended that the programme
as originally decided upon should be
carried uut. Mr. J. C. Armstrong
regarded sueh a visit as a slight littlo
short of an insult to the chief city of
the mainland and the birthplace of
confederation in British Columbia.
Mr. Kennedy regarded the time Bet
for his arrival as good as a declaration
from Sir John that he did not want I
any public reception. A'motion was;
made by Mr. Lord, seconded by Mr.
Kennedy, that work on the arches be
discontinued, which was lost, An
amendment, moved by Mr. J. W. j
Harvey, desiring his worship to tele*
graph the premier requesting him to j
extend liis visit over Saturday in order
that the reception which tlie people desired to givo liim might take the form
originally decided upon, wns carried.
The meeting adjourned at ft:.10 tn 11
this forenoon to await a reply before
taking any further action.
The adjourned meeting of the reception committees was held at 11 today. The mayor informed tho meeting that Sir John's private secretary
had telegraphed stating that he did
not think the arrangement oould be
changed. On motion it was resolved
to carry out the original programmo,
and to invite adjoining .municipalities
to take part in  the   reception.    The
firogramme,. which will include a torch-
ight procession on tho river at the
time of the arrival of the steamer, will
be published hereafter.
Miss Mary Campbell, Elm, writes:
"After taking four bottles of Northrop
& Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure, I feel as if I were a new
person. I hud been troubled with Dyspepsia for a number of years, and tried
many remedies, but of no avail, until I
used this celebrated Dyspeptic Cure."

Alarm Among Sliver Miners.
Butte, Mont., Aug. 4.—Grove alarm exists throughout the mining districts of Montana over the rapid decline of silver. It is estimated that
50,000 people in the territory are dependent oh the mining industry and'
cognate enterprises. The second depreciation of ten- cents per ounce iu
silver represents the profits of the
mining companies, which will have td
closo down unless a reaction occurs.
The lead and copper mines in whicli
silver is an important bi-product, are
also seriously affected. The Glendale
works, employing 1,000 men, will
shut down on the 15th inst. The
Alice Moulton, Lexington, and Wickes
works and many other great enterprises which for years liave paid heavy
dividends and employ thousands of
men, cannot run if the present depression in tlie silver market continues,
and general paralysis of business will
follow.

Logging Operations.
Eau Claire, Wis., Aug. 2.—Several
of the heavier lumber corporations in the
Chippewa district have already awarded
large contracts for putting in logs for
next season on the same terms and stipulations that were paid contractors last
year. Owing to the millions of feet of
logs that are considered hopelessly hung
up until started by the spring freshets of
1887, the cut for the coming winter will
be largely curtailed from tbe amount put
in last season. The estimate out on the
Chippewa river and principal feeders is
placed in round numbers at 650,000,000
feet, which will be a shortage of about
200,000,000 feet of tho log crop of last
winter. Of this amount 325,000,000 feet
will be put in by the Chippewa Logging
Company, or log pool, and the remainder
by outside lumber companies und individual loggers. Exclusive of this, 60,*
000,000 feet will be cut on the Eau Claire
by the Eau Claire and Northwestern
Companies, and over 100,000,000 feet on
the Red Cedar River by Knapp, Stout k
Co., who have the exclusive control of
logging operations on that river and
tributaries.
N. MoRae, Wyebridge, writes: "I

This Afternoon's Despatches.
Special lo (b* 4-aluiubIuu.
London, Aug. 11.—A sensation was
caused by statements made in court today in connection with the affairs of tlie
Briton medical and generd assurance association. Hearing of petition on winding
up of the business of the association wus
iu progress) and during tite courae of the
proceedings the judge stated that tlie
failure of the concern was due to defalcations whioh would exceed $500,000.
He declared every effort wonld be made
to unearth and punish the miscreants
who had caused the ruin of tlie association.
Belfast, Aug. 11.—The city is quiet,
The wounded are improving. A petition
which has received numerous signatures

causes of the disorders which have occurred here since June.

men who may be found within tlio three-

formal transfer of the boat to the Canadian government took place yesterday.
The Yosemite will sail to-day for Halifax.
San Francisco, Aug. 11. --The officers
of the third Irish regiment, at a special
meeting last night, decided to offer then-
services to President- Cleveland in the
.event of complications with Mexico.
Sah 'Franoisco, Aug. 11.—Much ill
feeling is manifested at au order of the
treasury to stamp tho word "Light" on
every gold coin presented at tlie sub-
treasury found to be one-half of one per
cent below standard weight, Coins so
stamped have to he sold as bullion, thus
entailing serious loss oil the holders.
Coins even slightly worn will thus no
longer pass current. Tlie regulation is
viewed as particularly vexatious .to the
people of this coast, gold being thc chief
circulating medium, paper money not
being used,
Much distress and sickness in children
is caused by worms. Mother Graves'
Worm Exterminator gives relief by removing the cause. Give it a trial aiid be

The annual report of this solidly pros-
Jierous Canadian institution will be found
ii another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecoiniums which
tho shareholders present .bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company hear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent. A point at-I
testing thc soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income i.s sufficient to pay the death
claims--wliich in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life is something to lie
proud of. The n-ssi-ts and liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, aftor making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of $28:!, Kill
over liabilities nnd capital combined.
The increase in the assets iu the last year
was §200,300. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, viz:—-"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for tho
sake merely of increasing now business."

Wkitb Bhonzb Monuments.--White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
been found to be so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
havo been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Dea
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments nre cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but does not ad*
here to it. A thin film of oxide wliich
forms on this bronze is indistrtictible by
thc elements; it cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although thc film is so thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.— Boston Journal of Commerce. Chas. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze
Monuments iu British Columbia. Much
cheaper and more durable than any

Twenty pounds of opium, valued at
8325, was seized on the str. Mexico
soon after her arrival from Victoria
and Puget Sound to-day. The drug
was found in a package sont through
Wells Fargo A Co. 's express to How
Kee tfc Co., 010 Dupont st. It is
claimed that the opium came from
Port Townsend, and henco was not
liable to duty, but as it was unstamped
it was taken under a provision that
authorizes the seizure of all opium not
bearing tho necessary stumps.

Belfast, Aug. 10.—5000 troops and
2500 constables occupy the disturbed
districts. Tlio presence of the police
tends to increase instead of suppressing disorder. Protestants declare that
Catholics werfe the aggressors by
4 wrecking Protestant houses, while
Catholics are equally certain that Protestants were the aggressors. Of one
thing tliere is no doubt, nover did two
mobs of different religions display
more blood-thirsty desire to kill or
maim each other. During the lighting
on Sunday and Monday,'when oven
powder rati short, viragoes on both
sides with tlat irons and implements
ground grains of large blasting powder
into a size suitable for small arms,
while boys under age melted lead into
bullets and sluggs. While the rioters
were firing, youth and women stood be-
liind them busily loading spare guns
in order to prevent waste of time. Tho
f usilade lasted until 9 o'clock yesterday
evening, when ammunition gave out
and a tacit truce ensued, both sides
removing dead and wounded to their
homes. Both sides are doing their utmost to hide their losses. On Monday
the Protestants received a welcome
donation of 25 rifles and much ammunition from Bally JUaccaret sympathizers, whilo the Bally Nabet nationalists
sent the Catholics a supply of ammunition and many revolvers of tho typo
called "sweethearts." A plentitudo
of weapons will constitute gravest danger in future. A visitor who hus beun
studying the cause of tho riots writes:
"It is useless mincing matters; the
police liave tired upon aud slain the
people from panic or from vindietive-
ness. When people have friends dead
or dying its worse than useless to say
they want to attack only the policu.
The bitter now represent the people's
deadly death-dealing enemies. Tho
friends of the killed and wounded all
regard the police as foes. Their bare
presence is a terror to be repulsed and
excludes the idea of wantonness."
This is now tho great .supreme difficulty. Numerous complaints liave been
mpde of the behavior of the police.
One citizen says: "While going home
through a quiet street I was stopped
by several constables who rudely
searched me and ordered me to give an
account of myself and then imperatively commanded me to go home at once."
Another writes that live constables
who drifted into a respectable tobacconist's shop upon seeing a pottch en-
gravud with the likeness of Chamberlain flung it down cursing Chamberlain
for "going against them." One of
them addressing tho lady behind the
counter said: "Your'e afraid of tho
Tipperrary boys. I put six bullets
into an Orangeman last night, and I'll
give them double to-night. If I bad
my own way 1 would not leave one !"
Maurice Henly, M.P. for Cork City,
has buen instructed on behalf of tho
widow of Constable Gardner, who was
killed during the Orange riots here, to
claim from the city an indemnity of
£10,000 for his death.
Nkw Yokk, Aug. 10.— Tho executive committee of the Irish parliament
fund association decided this evening
to place thu $53,000 tliat had boen collected, by the association in the bank
of New York at H per cont interest
until it should be needed by Parnell.
London, Aug. 10.—T. D. .Sullivan,
member of parliament for Dublin, at
a meeting of the National League held
here to-day, made a speech in which
he maintained that until tenants in
Ireland hsd sufficient food for them*
selves and their families their landlords could have no just claim to rent.
Sullivan counseled the Irish people to
aot according to tho law of self-preB-
omtion, which he reminded them was
the first law of nature. The Belfast
rioting, he argued, was based upon
the prejudice and feeling that had
grown up under the encouraging influence uf " foreign misrule," and was
of a nature utterly at variance with
the real  Irish  people.
The queen's speech on the reassembling of parliament will be (if.remarkable brevity. Beyond a reference to foreign relations, probably no
subject of importance will be touched '
on, and the speech will bo confined to
the business of tho session.
BKt-ttsT- Aug. 10 —About 5 o'olock
this afternoon two men were shot by
disorderly persons in different parts of
tha oity. One of the men was shot
while in the Catholic cemetery attending tho funeral of a victim of the recent Hots. Special constables are being enrolled. A fund is being opened
for the relief of the families of the
killed.
Oastibn, Aug. 10.—The Emperor

Dublin, Aug, 10.—The Gazette announces that Belfast and Londonderry
have again been proclaimed. There
has been uo more rioting in Belfast up
to midnight to-night. Mr. Biggar, in
a speech beforo the Catholic commission, said that the justices aud Protestant clergy of Belfast encouraged the
rioting and acted unjustly. The
mayor of Belfast, he said, ought to be
put in the dock as a criminal,
Belfast, Aug. 10.—The magistrates
dealt severely  with   the  rioters who
woro  triod to-day.   Throughout the
day and evening   sullen crowds  gathered ou the streets with a desire to renew the rioting, but fear of the troops
prevented an outbreak.   The Queen's
Island meu rejected tho magistrate's
appeal  to   return  to their homes in
small    bodies   instead   of    compact
crowds.   They carried a good supply
of misailes for use iu the event of being attacked.    Youths aud girls con- j

NOVEL EXPERIENCE OF A CANADIAN STEAMER.
OmoAOO, July 31.—Thu Canadian
steamer Isaac Mny staytjered into harbor early to-day, without fuel and destitute of provisions. Cnpt. Muir, her
mnster, relates a strange experience.
The May left Chicago threo weeks ago,
towing the barges Severn, Muskit and
Waubasheiie. After a run of five days
they arrived at Mauitoulin island, on
the Canadian side of Lake Huron. It
is the largest island in the great lakes,
and is covered with cedar trees. For
weeks not a drop of rain hnd fallen.
Shortly aftor the steamer and her tow
began to tnke on their cargo of posts
and ties the woods suddenly burst into
a grent blaze, and no sooner had tho
fire started than a severe wind storm
came over tho island, driving flames in
every direction. The people fled in
terror to the beach, and sought shelter ou board of vessels, which pulled
out into tho lake. Scores of bear,
roaring with pain, ran out of the
woods, with the hair singed from their
hides, and plunged iuto the lako. The
scene was grand beyond description.
Flames shot into the air for hundreds
of feet and turned night into day,
while the heat was bo intense that the
boats wero obliged to leave their moorings aud push out iuto tlie lake. The
noise was deafening, and amid all the
din and confusion thousands of birds
fluttered around their late homes until tired with their constant flight,
when they dropped hit) the lake or
fell into the flames. Iu numerous
cases deer aud bear rushed from the
woods together and threw themselves
into the cooling waters of the lake.
For five days the flames held their
sway, burniiiK *'Ver acres of valuablo
timber, and destroyed a vast amount
uf stuck that had beeu piled ou the
beach for shipment. Then a drenching rain storm set in, aud continued
until the tire was put* nut.
It was teu days from the time the
vessels reached there before thoy wuru
ready to leave, and their stock of provisions was almost exhausted in caring
for the peoplo who took refuge on
them. Still Captain Muir thought he
could make his provisions hold out
until they reached Chicago, but ho did
not count on having head winds all the
way, Thu vessels left tho islands last
Saturday morning, and as dense clouds
of smoke from the burning timber had
settled down over tiio water, the vessels had to pick their way through tho
darkness. Tho steamer passed through
the straits Monday evening, but had
hardly entered Lake Michigan whon
they ran into another bank of smoke
that shut out everything from viow.
The first barge in t*»w could not be
seen from the decks of the steamur.
Capt. Muir was momentarily expecting
a collision with some approaching vessel. On all sides could be heard the
signals of passing steamers, but by
moving slowly and sounding tho whistles at frequent intervals, tho steamer
made her way through tho smoko in
safety. His progress had beon so
greatly impeded, however, that when
about 100 miles north uf Chicago the
ougineer reported that the coal bunkers were empty, aud that thero was
nothing left to eat but salt pork. Con- j
sequently tho crew wore put upon
short rations, aud the deck load of
posts wore drawn on, to fued the fur- j
naces, but tho codar was so groon tlyit
the boilers could hardly be kept warm,
and finally thu steamur had to cut hor ■
consorts adrift and camo to Chicago
without thom. She mado her way j
here under sail, and tugs wore sent out j
to search for tlio barges.
