Wrdairsdar tvenins, July 90, 18ST,
Jules Verne Distanced
Jules Vcvne only just saved his
reputation by publisliiug Iris last
6tory, "Robur tho Conqueror," when
ho did. In thnt fiction he produces
an aerial parullcl to tbtf famous
'.'ifaiiitilus," in which Captain Netto-
journeyed so many thousand leagues
under the sea. Robur the Conqueror devises an aerial machine called
the Albatross, which can he driven
seventy milos an hour in the teeth
of the wind, and can bo managed
and steered in any atmospheric conditions, barring the center of a revolving hurricane. It is an ingenious story, and tho sham science
with which it is padded gives it an
air of sobriety ond reality to the
average render. But we have bo
fore us a circular which proves that
though, according to Jules Verne,
the Philadelphia scientists pin their
faith on balloons, the aerial machine
is already announced to take its departure from an American city. Tho
inventor of tho new machine appears
to be a Frenchman, At all events,
his name is Do Bausset, am! bis nd
dress is Chicago. He gives a cut of
his machine, which is a cigar-sliapcd
cylinder, to bo made of metal plates,
and is to support a car containing
the machinery, passengers and crew,
etc. In external appearance the
body resembles the Avitor, which a
San Francisco journalist spont a fortune upon vainly some yours ago.
There is nothing small about Dr. Do
llausset'rs ideas. His airship is to
be capable of carrying 200 passengers, and he intonds,pabmit ji year,
henco, "startinj^onli Voyage 8f discovery to the Nortli Polo and Aretio
regions." He estimates that n month
will suffice for the voyage to and
from the pole, "allowing ien days or
two weeks for scientific observations
of Arotic phenomena." Whether ho
means that tho passage to the pole
will be made in one week is not quite
clear, but probably nothing is hazarded in that assertion. In the new ait-
ship the flotation is to be effected,
not by gas, but by creating a partial
vacuum in tho suspensory cylinder.
To the objection that the result of
this procedure would be the collapse
of the cylinder, tha bravo inventor
replies by anticipation with equations
which at least satisfy him that "a
partial vacuum (varying and averaging from J to J of exhaustion) gives
ample buoyancy for lifting the cylinder and its car. "Aeroptano"aro to bo
regulated by the vacuum and air-
valves; the exhaust of tho vacuum
being controlled by four powerful
pneumatic pumps driven by storage
batteries. Horizontal motion will
be secured "by the uso of eight compound exhausting nir screws (propellers) displacing and throwing upon
tho surrounding atmosphere 270,000
to 300,000 cubit feet of air per minute, an energy suiliciont to impart to
the Aeroplano a moan velocity of
seventy mile san hour. "Tho projector is somewhat apprchensivo thnt
"even to men of scientific attainments his interprisc may appear visionary;" but he says that no one ho
far has been ablo to point out any
impracticable point in it; that his
plan has the approval of many electrical experts and authorities; and
that ho invites examination and dis
tructivo criticism. Tho opinions of
scientific men upon new mechanical
inventions have frequently proved
to be mistaken as, for example, the
opinion of Dr. Lardner upon tho
possibility of crossing tho Atlantic
withja steamboat, and the opinion of
many English scientists upon the
traction power of the first locomotive engine. Somo of thorn oven contended that the driving-wheels would
not take hold upon a smooth rail, but
would simply spin round and do no
duty. Remomboring thoso deplorable blunders, fow men of science will
declare in advance that an aerial
machine is impracticable; but at the
same time they will hesitate to indorse it speculatively. As the departure of the Aerophone for the
north pole next June seems to depend quite as muoh upon tho success
of the inventor in raising monoy
wherewith to build it, ns upon tho
operation of the principles he is to
apply, a good deal of faith must go
to the accomplishment of the project, and it is to be feared that tho
commodity is not just now so much
a drug in tho market as Dr. DeBaua-
set could wish. Yet it is often by such
bold experiments that great mechanical discoveries aro made,—if. Y.

San Fuancihco, July 19.—Justice
BVld announced in tho U. S, circuit
court this morning that!|fr6. Langtry
would have tu return to this city and
to appear in court in person if .sho de*
sittid to perfect "her eitztiStthip. Her
former declaration was mado at hor

there was no occasion for the removal
of books from court and that there
was a questimi as the legality of pro*
ceodure.
LAUNCUIMl A .NEW STEAMER,
Sax Fkancisco, July 19.—At noon
to-morrow the now Bteel steamer building at the Union Iron Works yard for
Iho Canadian Pacific Railway Co., will

San Franoisco, July 19. — The
members of the chamber of commerce
held a meeting this afternoon at which
a resolution, lookintr for the enlarge
ment of the lire department and improvements of streeta and sowers, was
adopted. Thu following concerning
ihe proposed Pacific cable was adopted:
\VhereaB the political and commercial
relations of the United States and
Hawaiian Islands and South Pacific
Islands and A ustralin aro rapidly increasing, and whereas the laying of
telegraphic cables ou tho ocean routo
is accompanied with grave scientific
questions which will prevent the use
of exclusively private capital therein.
Therefore bo it resolved that the
chamber of commerce nf San Franciaci
forward to tlio ensuing congress a
memorial to bo improved by the board
of trustees earnestly petitioning our
government to oiler such inducements
that capital may be attracted to this
great enterprise and a advantage
to tho wluilo country.
REWARDING UFESAVINO.
Waspinoton, July 19.—Tho retiring army .board, of which Qu*rt*r-
Mnsier-Gcficrjt! IicHibird is president,
has recommended the retirement of
of Capt. J. F. Simpson, 3rd cavalry,
who is now under treatment at the
government hospital for insanity,
Cnpt. Simpson is the officer whocreftt*
ed the scandal in Arizona n few years
ago by his conduct with the "notorious
women." He waacourtmartialled and
sentenced to dismissal. President
Arthur, however, disapproved of the
finding of tho court and ordered the
officer's restoration to duty. Ho was
ostracised by his brother officers and
was subsequently sent to an insane
asylum for treatment. He probably
will bo released ns soon as a vacancy
occurs in the retired Hat. Tho secretary of state has receUod through the
German minister at Washington from
tho emperor of Germany a check for
§1000 and two handsome gold watches
embellished with likeness and monogram of the emperor, with request that
the money be divided equally among
the families of live members of the life-
saving crow at Damneck Mills station,
Virginia, who loet their lives in attempting to rescue tho crew of tho
German ship Elizabeth on tho 8th uf
January last, nnd that thu watches be
presented to Frank Sedoford md Jas.
£theridge, tho only survivors of the
life-saving crow. Tho money and
watches have been turned over to Gen.
Supt. Kimball for distribution.
JUVENILE MORTALITY.

THE CLIMAX BEACHED.
Wheeling, W. Va.t Jolv.lfl.-The
excessive heat culminated last night in
a terrific storm. The rain and wind
were heavy, demolishing tta shade
treea and fences and for an hour there
was not a second intermission between
the flashes of lightning. At Grafton
tt was the most severe ever experienced.
Mrs. W. T. Oarr wu sitting with her
children when the home was struck by
lightning, whioh set fire to the bed in,
the room. The neighbors running to
extinguish the flames found that Mrs.
Carr had been instantly killed and
three children severely burned by the
electric bolt. The residence of Geo.
Deen was also struck and a large hole

POLITICAL NOTES.
London, July 2.—Chamberlain waa
tho principal agent in conducting the
negotiations between the government
and the unionists. The Post thia a.m.
reiterates ita cry for unity among the
unionists. It says tho source of weakness will be apparent so long as Lord
Salisbury is compelled to declare him-
solf in the minority. A new appeal
should be made to the unionists to
take their places in the ministry and
do honor to nis cynical fhrak&Mt
WELCOME TO THE EMPEROR.

iu an unusually warm manner.
DAMAGE TO THE ATLANTA.
New York, July 20.—The Jun ays
private letters from
mmoMnhtt on fccttMf the 	
ser Atlanta say that during target prac>
tice in Gardner Bay, the day before
yesterday, the 8 inch bore and stern
barbette pipot guns recoiled with such
force as to tear loose the tracks on
winch they turned and also to rip up
a portion of the heavy gun deck.
These guns are the heaviest afloat in
the service and those on board the
Atlanta are the first to be tested on
board ship by our naval officers. Just
how serious the damage is could not
be learned.
A BIG FIRE.
Beroin Point, N. J.. July 20.—
The Standard Oil fire is now under
control. Tho loss is estimated at
about 91,500,000.
Miss Mary Campbell, Elm, writes:—-
"After taking four bottles of Northrop
k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and

person. I had been troubled with Dyspepsia for a number of years, and tried
many remedies, bnt of no avail, until t

Not n Boom Town.
We have laid' that Westminster
ia not a boom town, and its best
friends hope it never will bo. But
while there is no disposition or wish
among us to bqoni, there is no reason why we should not be on the
look out for legitimate schemes of
advertising the oity. During the
sitting o( the provincial legislature
a good deal of complaint was made
by Viotoria members because the
C. P. R. people had not made tho
name of their city to appear on the
telegraph, blanks and the letter
heads of the company. This complaint was childishly silly because
the map on the telegraph blank was
n very diminutive birds-eye view,
and did not profess to give the
names of all places served by'the
railway. Between Montreal and
Vancouver ther; was not" a name of
any city mentioned, ond it seemed
ridiculous enough to find'Victorians
shouting about the omission of their
city's name when as a matter of
fact it was not situated on the C.
P. E. at all. Mr. VanHorne, however, saw that the peoplo of the
capital were so seriously exercised
over this matter that he good-
naturedly j promised to have the
name of Viotoria made conspicuous
hereafter wherever it could be inserted. The people of Westminster,
being more modest, have been keeping silenoe, although many things
have been done by the railway
company whioh seemed to them
hardly in keeping with the declaration of Mr. VanHorne that Vancouver and Westminster would be
treated always alike, and the success of each would depend entirely
upon the energy and enterprise of
its oitizens. Por a long time freight
rates were so arranged as to discriminate against us. Upon repeated representation that grievance
was removed, and we believe Westminster and Vancouver are now
enjoying exactly the same rate. We
have before us a pamphlet on British Columbia, published and circulated by the Canadian Pacific Bail-
way, and professing to give reliable
information to immigrants and
others. It is a pamphlet of 56
pages, contains two very good maps
and a great deal of useful information relating to the oountry. This
work was compiled by Molyneux
St. John who, we believe, visited
the province some months ago.
Although the resources of tho various cities and districts are geuerally
set forth with fair accuracy, a special exception seems to have been
made in the case of Westminster.
This, the second oity in the province, and the froth water terminus
of the 0. P. R, is passed by practically without notice. Incidentally
its name occurs twice in the pamphlet, but it is not mentioned for its
own sake at all. Evidently Mr.
St. Johni like > good many others
who come to this province for a
few days and go away under the
delusion that they have seen and
comprehended everything, did not
visit Westminster at all and only
learned incidentally that there *ns
such a place in existence. If his
pamphlet (which goes out, unfortu
nntely, with the authority of the
0. P. R.) had been labelled "British
Columbia, with Westminster omitted," it might have passed without
challenge. Victoria and Vancouver
Island occupy a good deal of space
in the pamphlet, and Esquimalt,
Nanaimo, Vanoouver, Yule, Kamloops, and other places on the railway line or entirely disconnected
from it receive proper attention;
while Westminster, the largest and
most important city connected with
the railway in British Columbia, is
completely ignored! At the end of
the pamphlet are some brief direo
tions to immigrants. In these
directions the writer is careful to
impress his readers with the idea
tbat Victoria and Vancouver are
Uie only places in the province.
They are cautioned to be sure and
buy tickets through to Vancouver,
and to have all their bank orders
and post-office orders made payable
at Victoria—just at if there was no
bank or no postoffice anywhere else
in the province! We have said this
is not a boom oity. Secure in the
possession of geographical tnd other
advantages such as belong to no
other community in British Columbia, we are not easily disturbed by
what looks like a deliberate attempt
to blot us off the face of nature.
But there is a limit to patience. It
may as well be known that these
things are not escaping observation,
and that wa an not altogether indifferent to- them. Another pamphlet or two, issued under the auspices of the C. P. R., like the one
now before ut, maybe just a little
more than we shall choose to stand.
It has occurred to tome of our people that if Mr. VanHorne fulfils his
promise and, puts Victoria on the
company's telegraph Wanks and letter heads, he had better put on
Westminster too. Wo are the fresh
water terminal and entitled to inch
a distinction;1While Vietoria is at

What Physicians Say About the
STARR KIDNEY PAD.
"Treatment by Absorption hns for some
time been recognized by Medical Men to
be the most simple and effectual means
of convoying to Diseased Oigans, "Curatives," but In cases of Kidney Disei.se and
ComplalntH attendant thereon, successful
treatment was practicably impossible until the introduction of the Starr Kidney
Pad, It costs less thaft a single prescription aud Is immeasurably more decisive
and effective than any quantity of internal
Medicinal dosing. Worn immediately over
the scat of Disease, its curative properties
become absorbed by the diseased and enfeebled Owftns. continuously and directly,
as required to insure in return thoir healthy action nnd original vigour. It is comfortable to the patient end pleasant lu Us
effects, nnd cures when nothing else can.
The Starr Kidney Pad accomplishes positive, decisive results. A more valuable
discovery as n true remedy for Kidney
Diseases was w\'crmade.~-Medical Gazette

13. ROBSON,
*fcvd.eC"AClg,8*'. MAIMED MOT OF lEWm.1
Loves of Some Great Anthots-Poeta A3.
truuumars, Preaotiers, Travelers, Etc.
Somo of the names In out list ot men
of letters who married are not thoso ot
authors who dopendod or depend—for
some of them aro still living—on their
writings for subsistence, but nearly all
depend on thoir wrlilngs lor thoir reputation.
.\< ull of theso-Bon wore hustahds.
ami most of (hem fathers, such a lirrt
niuy serve to show llrat husbuwlo and
fathers need not despair .of achieving
reputations as tuthorj, though, lu literature, as In othor pursuits, a man pen-
orally secures somo measure ot success
before ho marries.
This, however, Is far from being always the case. St. Augustine was s
father, if not a husband, before bo wag
a srilnt or author.
Tho mauled poets, lt will bo noticed,
aro nuinoroits. Fow of the best aro
missing. This Is exactly as might bo
expected. Tho genuine poet Is abovo all
tilings a lover.
If some eminent poets aro missing
from our list, which, by tho way, docs
not pretend to bo oxhaustivo, lt would
be rash to accuse them of insensibility
to the fascinations of the fair, for by
the missltifs name there usually lutngs a
sad tale of disappointed lovo.
Camoens, for example, was twice banished because of his passion for ono ot
the " Queen's ladles" at the Court of
Lisbon, and, although his* love was returned, the fates wero so unkind that
she died beforo he could claim her.
. The number of -travelers, or rather
authors of books of travel, Is comparatively small, and this, again, is exactly
as might have been exported. It is not
the husband and the father who affects
the tjatanlo habit ot walking, up and
down and going to and fro upon tbe
earth.
It would take a volumo to notice all
the interesting facts about authors and
thoir wives.   Here aro a few:
Of Tycho Drahe we read that, "being
a great admirer of tho fair sex ho conceive! a violent inclination forCrrristiiift,
a beautiful country girl, the daughter of.
a neighboring peasant, and ali<naled his
family Ull the King commanded them
to bo reconciled to him. Tycho, who
chose hit because she might bo moro
grateful arrd subservient than a lady of
higher birth, nover seems to havo repented, lut ever found bis Christina
un agreeable companion and an obedient
Wifrr."     •
Kepler, on the othor hand, found that,
"the married state at first created him
great u .easiness from a dispute which
anise rrboirt his wlfo's fortune."       •-   '
Odin Jinux, in spite of his "Blast ol
tho Trumpet Against the Monstrous)
Kog'.uii'irt of Women," married two of
ihen:, and !■« 1 ohildren by both.
Sir Jolm JIandevilla "religious!* do-
elii.irj an honorable alliance to tho
Sriiian of Egypt, whose daughter he
tniii-lit have cspuusod It ho would have
abjured Cluisilonity."
Burton, as far as wo hsve heefi able
to learn, was nover married. This
ugalnis as wo ospectod. The "Anatomy or Moiauoholy " Is not the kind of
bouk thai anybody but a lonely baohe-
lor would think of writing.
You.'-, author ot "Night Thoughts,"
man ir ■■'■ a lady with money, Wld so did
Dr. Johnson.

"IhOnrtlmt Smith baa aula Out MS

" Yes," responded tbe otbev oXutt

" It's rather a funny story.

"Smith b a pretty tespeetncloeort ot

thicks the world of his family.

tied around his waist, and was setting
the drinks up pretty free.
" Smith walked over and looked la
tlio pall, lt was beer, and two of the
Loys were so drunk tbat they staggered,
"A neighbor's boy, a couple of years
older, lay a-loop behind the tree.
" ' My God, boys, you must not drink
that,' he said as he lifted the 6-year-old
from behind the bench.
" 'Wo's playln' s'loon, papa, ud 1 WU

WHITE HOUSE EXPENSES.
tPhat It Costs To euro For and Maintain
the President's Home,
Nearly ovory good housewife "cleans
bouse" onco or twice a year, and the
mansion of the nation's Chief-Executive
does not escapo the annual rejuvenation
which is characteristic of Amorlcan home
llfo.
Unlike most prlvato houses, howover,
tho Whito /Houso undergoes its overhauling In tho summer time whllo Its
occupants are off on their annual outing,
The work furnishes employment for a
Small army of servants for a scored!,
ays or moro.
Notwithstanding tho fact that the mansion is kraut In good order at all times,
the annual housocleanlng never fails to
disclose plenty of work to bo dono, and
sweepers, scrubbers and dusters hold
high carnival during the continuance ot
their reign.
Tho uppor ns woll as tho lower floor
undergoes tho processor rejuvenation.
The liiusty old books in the library,
many of thorn dating baok to the days of
Polly Madison ana Susan Monroe, are
all taken out and dusted. The two
pianos in tho houso nro tuned up, and
when tho doors are Anally opened to tho
public tho houso Is In tho most oxqulslte
order and ready for another year's slogo
Ot dinners and receptions.
As may be woll Imagined, it costs a
yery protty ponny to keep tho establishment in order. The $16,000 for keeping
tho house In order for tho noxt yoar,
which becamo available on July 1st, is
net by any meanBall that has beon spent
upon the mansion slnco Frcsldont Cleveland took possession.
Mr. Arthur left a large cash balance
unexpended of the last appropriation
during his term, according to a tlmo-
honorod custom that the outgoing President,.shall leave a lump sum for the blooming President to make any ohanges
he may desire.
Nothing new has beon bought In the
houso since Mr. Arthur left" lt In suoh
complete and beautiful order. It undoubtedly, though, requires a largo sum
to kcop It In condition,
Tho donning of tho huge crystal chandeliers is a considerable Item of expense.
Tho wholo lower floor is lighted by these
enormous crystals, each ono with thousands of pendants. Thero aro no less
than threo dozen of those chandeliers in
tho East Boom, the Blue, Red, and
Green rooms, tho two dining-rooms and
the corridors, and once a year each ono
has to bo tnkon to pieces and every part
carefully cleaned and put back in its
place.
The care of tho carpets and curtains
also roqulros tho spending of monoy.
Tho handsome laco draperies aro torn at
nerrrl.' ovory reception, and theso havo
to bo carefully repaired, to Bay nothing
ot the taking down two or threo times,a
yoar to be washed and darned.
Somo peoplo wonder how the President
can pay out ot his salary the numerous
expenses attached to his olllce.
There aro separata appropriations.
Bosides his salary of S&u.oOO, tho estimate presented to Congress this session
asked for $36,001 additional, to pay the
salaries of his subordinates and clerks.
His private secretary Is paid $3,250,
his assistant prlvato secretary $2,250, his
stenographer $1,800, live messengers
(each) $1,200, a steward $1,800, two doorkeepers who each get $1,200, four other
clerks at good salaries, ono telegraph
operator, two ushers, getting $1,200 und
$1,400; a night usher, getting $1,200; a
watchman, who gots £000, and a man to
tako care of fires, who receives $804 a
yoar.
Iu addition to this there ts sot down
$8,000 for incidental expenses, such as
stationery, earpots, and the care of the
rrosldcnt'B stables.       .    .
ATid'i armor Tin, llnrtof anotner Meaning, thero Is a demand for nearly $10,000
moro. Of this, $12,500 is for repairs and
furnishing tho White House, $2,500 for
fuel, $3,000 for tho greenhouse, and
(15,000 for gas and tho care of tho
stables. ,
Tho White House, all told, costs the
country, In connection with tho President, considerably over $125,000 a year,
and at that rats It ts cheaper, relatively
to the work dono, than the service of
Congress.—[Washington Letter,

" Good-by, my eon; God bless you."

"There Is nothing In the world that

So said a young man of lconoolostlo

"For years men's vests have beon buttoned almost up to tho ohin, and the little piece of shirt front that would bo left

Aud yet men go on wearing shirts with

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
ON THE 10TH OP JANUARY, 1887,
tho Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern, was purchased by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to bo known as tbo
*' British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." Tho concern has been for
nearly a year ownod and controlled by
tlio British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of New Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. Tlio object of
tliu new company is to continue tho publication of the BurriH.il Colombian newspaper and carry on a neneral printing and
publishing concorn, controlled entirely by
those whose individual interest it will bo
to promote the development, especially
of the Mainland. Thore will lm no
slackening of tbo energy hitherto displayed in the management of tho estab*
lishmntit, and ita patrons may rely upon
receiving full value for their money.
The Columbian will continue to bo entirely independent in both Dominion and
provincial politics, and will devote itself
to tbo advancement of snch schemes as
may be oonsidercd in the publio Interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, tho book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been, taken over by Mr. T. R,
Pearson, Who will continue to carry it on
iu his own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this city, and
tlio new company asks fpr public patronage on tbo ground thnt it is engaged in
an enterprise calculnted to promote tho
public welfare. It osltB that the Columbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so lung as its policy is
encousistt with its professions. In con*
sequence of this business change all accounts due tho concern must be settled
without delay so thnt the books of the
former company mny bo adjusted and
olosod. Address .tit communications and

Enquiry Needed.—Within ii few
weeks two prisoners have escaped from
the provi ncial goal in this city. Tlio
one who escaped on Monday night is
evidently an export and a dangerous
character. If tho prison is insecure,
or if tho guards aro inefficient, there
ought to bo a careful investigation.

Smoke,—Mr. J. Wilson, who came
down from Banff to-day, says thu whole
country from this city to tho summit
of the Rocky Mountains is so enveloped in smoke that one can discern nothing at a distance, in some places tho
smoke and heat aro so bad that peoplo
have suffered a great deal. The bush
fires must be doing great damage to
timber.
The Woollen Mill.—Tlie ongino
and boilora of the new woollen mills
were tested this afternoon under a

expect that in two weeks the mill will

parts of the province, and already
about a ton is stored in tho company's

for a while at least Mr. Kennedy

but in every instance so far Sam has

this city lost Monday a large gang of
railway men waa at work constructing
the traok through the disputed proper*

to resume work, but found tho track
barricaded and Greer behind the barricade with a decidedly business air
and two rifles. It did not requiro
much persuasion to convince thorn that
under these circumstances discretion
was the better part of valor, aud Sam
Greer is still holding the fort. . The

would represent tho Fmithill Nursei ies

woat his destination being New Westminster, in British Columbia, n town
of from 2,000 to S.000 inhabitants,
on the banks of the Frazor river.
Mr. H. goes there to represent
eastern capitalists for tho purpose of
buying timber and arable land for those
parties, and introducing baud saws and
other latest improved lumber machinery. He will also represent ono of the
largost Toronto firms. He traveled for
many months through British Columbia
and other places along the Pacific coast,
as well as through tho northwestern
Territories, reaching to the Ponce river
districts, and is so well satisfied with
tho natural resources of the various
filaces that he has concluded to cast his
ot among the people of New Westminister, where he will build a residence and make it his permanent homo.
He has beon in nearly every State and
Territoryin tho Union, but says British
Columbia is his favorito spot, giving as
his reasons, schools tho year round,
teachers all paid by the government,
salerics from 860 to $110 per month;
the climate is much more to his liking,
farmers need not make any hay for
their stock, bunch grass grows thero on
the wild land and is nutritious for
horses as oats and com; land cheap nnd
first class for stock raising and farming,
minerals of many kinds, and many
other things. Mr. H. has had an extended experince in tlio lumber business in all its branches, and for yours
has carried on in connection with C. A.
Meek & Co., of this county, a heavy
business. Many of our peoplo feol sorry
to see him leave, as be is a first class

The Murder of the Archbishop.
MORE PARTICULARS OF THE TRAGIC EVENT.
San Franoisco, July 18.—Further
particulars have been gathered concerning the murder of Archbishop
Seghers, whicli took placo on the 28th
November last. The scene of tho
tragedy waa tho bank of the Yukon
River about 500 miles from its mouth
and fully 40 miles from any human
habitation. The murderer is Frank
Fuller, a youug man from Portland,
who accompanied tho bishop as his
servant and companion. Ho gavo
himself up. No cause for tho deed is
given. The murderer is now in Sitka,
where ho will be tried. Archbishop
Seghers loft for Alaska last summer,
intending to do missionary work among
the Indians. Fuller was taken along,
he being warmly recommended, and
tho two started for the wilderness
from tho sea shore together. Tho
body of the bishop waa loft at St.
Michael's. Father Tasse, tho archbishop's assistant, was seen by n reporter in relation to the death of 'tho
archbishop. "It was a year ago last
mouth," said he, "that tho archbishop
asked mo to bring Fuller with mo to
Alaska. Ho had known Fuller.several
years. Ho was very, anxious to juin
me in the Alaska woilk.;: He asked
several times to bo alio wed to go. Tho
archbishop told mo to bring him along.
Wo started from Victoria on tho 13th
of July, a year ago. The archbishop,
Fuller, and myself went by steamer
to Juneau. Wo thon formed a party
and went to Clnlcat from thero, where
we had tho things carried across the
mountains   by   Indians   to  tho  huud
waters of the Yukon. We built a
boat there, and started down the Yukon and arrived on tho 5th September at tho mouth of tho Stewart
River. Hero tho tho archbishop loft,
with another priest to carry on tho
work among tho Stickeon Indians.
The archbishop, with Fuller and the
Indians, procooded down tlie river.
I heard nothing more of them till
they reached Fort Yukon. About tho
middle of June i learned tho archbishop was dead. From one of the
Indian boys who was with tho archbishop I learned tho particulars of the
murder. On tho seventh day of tho
journey (it was the 27th of November
according to tho boy's story) Fuller became morose and quarrelsome. They
wero thirty miles from Noulata. Towards night Fuller asked the archbishop to make camp. Tho archbishop
consulted tho Indians, who advised
against camping there. The Indians
said they should camp in a number of
Indian houses that would be found a
few miles further. Tho archbishop
told Fuller tho Indians knew bettor
than thoy, and that thoy should follow thoir advice. Fullor complained
at moro attention being paid to tho
Indians than to him. Ho talked so
much about it that tho Indians carried
his words to tho archbishop. 'Never
mint}!' said ho, 'you know hotter
than wo do.' Thoy accordingly went
ou tho camp, and made their beds,
and all slept together in a line. Fuller
was tho first to get up. It was between 0 and 7 o'clock iu the morning,
Ho got some sticks ready for a fire,
but sat down opposite tho archbishop
without lighting them. Tho Indian at
the head of thu line as he roso heard
iFuller say, 'Archbishop, got up.' The
archbishop lifted his head, and half
rose up, when he saw Fuller with his
rifle leveled at him. As Fuller fired
he clasped his arms across his breast
und bowed his head. Tho bullet
Btruck him Bquarely on tho forehead.
Ho nover spoke. Tho muzzle of tho
rifle was so close to his faco that it was
burned by tho powder. All happened
so quickly that the Indian was not
ablo to do anything, but whon Fuller
began to roload ho sprang upon him
and seized his gun, shouting to his
companions that Fuller was going to
murder thorn all. 'No,' said Fuller,
•I want to kill only tho archbishop.1
Tho Indians arrangod the body ns woll
us thoy could, and wont with Fuller
to Noulata. Fullor accompanied tho
body to St. Michaels. He offered to
givo himself up beforo a warrant could
be taken back for his arrest, and ho
was taken to Sitka to be tried. He
confesses tho crime fully and cries
about it,' We have kept tho witnesses
at St, Michael's and thoy will appear
at tho trial."
Jas. Shannon, LeaBkdale, writes: For
many years my wife was troubled with
chilblains, and could get no relief until
about two years ago; sho was then not
ablo to walk, and tho pain was then so
excruciating that sho could not sleep at
night. Your agent was then on his regular trip, and she ashed him if he could
euro ner. Ho told her Dr. Thomas'
Kcleotrio Oil was a sure cure. Sho tried
it, and judge of her astonishment when
in a few days the pain was all allayed
and the foot restored to its natural condition. It is also the best remedy for
burns and bruises I over used.
