gnili) $ ritish Columbian
TLursilny Evening;, July til, 1887.
Tho fnrmors of Ontario appear to
be thoroughly in earnest in thoir agitation for unrestricted trade between Canada and the United States.
They appear to be just as thoroughly
worked up over this question as ever
the manufacturers were over the
question of securing protection, and
for exactly the same reason, as will
be seen by the report of the speeches
made nt Oobourg, Ontnrio, a ta meeting of tlie Farmers' Institute of
West Northumberland, which we
give to our readers as an example
of many similar meetings. It would
be money in their pockets if they got
commercial union. The United
States is the best market for the
Canadian farmers, especially for barley and some other coarse grains, as
well as for horses and cattle and win-
tor fruit, There is this to be said in
favor of the farmer's demand. He
does not ask the Qovenunent to tax
other people in order that he may
profit by it,—Mail,
On this side the restless Atlantic,
where the continuance in office of
tho nation's head is a brief four years
—or a rare continuance to twice that
period—the idea of a half century of
ruling by ono human being comes
with some force. That that ruler
is a woman invests the subject with
additional interest for the gallant
young nation whoso territory stretches from ocean to ocean. No heartier
shouts ascended along the lino of
Queen Victoria's route on the 21st
of June than those issuing from the
throats of Americans. Whether in
the person of a queen or a charwoman, your true American recognises woman's work, and Victoria's admirers in the land of the Stars and
Stripes include almost every intelligent man in Uncle Sara!? <ifl;,
minion.. — Pittsburg Bulletin. It
would possibly cost a New York
daily newspaper about a third of its
circulation to publish so heartly and
altogether sincere a paragraph as the
above.—if". Y. Truth.
The contlict that has arisen between the Canadian Parliament and
the Manitoba Legislature is, to say
the least, a deoidedly unpleasant occurrence. The grounds of the contlict aro very simple. The Legislature of the North-western Provinco
of Manitoba have granted charters
for the construction of railways from
Winnipeg no the United States frontier, and those have been disallowed
by the Federal Government, which
has tho power of veto on all provincial legislation. Tho action of the
Federal Governmont it due to a desire to prevent the expanding business of the North-West from being
diverted to the United States, and
to cause it instead to pass over the
Canadian Pacific railway, aud so benefit the other provinces of Canada.
Judging by tlie telegrams received
this week, feeling at Winnipeg is
greatly excited on the subject. The
Premier of Manitoba is reported to
havo said: "Tho railway will bo built,
no matter what tho consequences
may bo. The contractor has everything in readiness to begin operations
in the coming week. We are not
serfs, and will not be found in tho
background in the event of trouble,
which I hopo will be avoided, but
not at tlio expence of the railway
project." Thero can bo no doubt
that this language is largely justified.
The Provinco of Manitoba is closely
connected commercially with the
United States, and the Govornment
of tho province very naturally wish
es to meet tho demands of business
for increased means of intercourse,
and help forward the legitimate and
natural expansion of Manitoba. And
the Federal Government is making
a very grave blunder in peremptorily
forbiding this; for by doing so it is
imperilling tho unity of tho Dominion, whioh is still tar from secure,
despito all tho efforts that have beon
made to that ond. There can bo no
doubt that tho business of Manitoba
has a natural tendency to gravitate
towards tho United States, instead
of towards the provinces of the Dominion, and this should bo frankly
reoognined by tho Federal Government, however much it may regret
that such should bo the caso ofter it
hns, by the construction of the Canadian Facitio railway, done so much
to bring about nn opposite result.
If Manitoba is givon to understand
that if sho remains in the Union her
commercial interests must be sacrificed, the temptation to sever her connection with the rest of Canada will
be very difficult indeed to resist.—

Sin Fkancisco, July 20.— In a long
interview John D. Spreokles again
speaks of the proposed landing of the
Australian mails at San Diego. He
touches upon tho great value to the
United States of retaining the "mail
contract apart from the monoy received
for carrying mails. He said ' if the
steuniera ceased stopping at Honolulu
und made the run direct to San Diego,
tho run could be made from Auckland in 15 to 1C days, or 20 days from
Sidney. He then said, "I believe the
Atchison road oilers to carry the mails
from San Diego to New York in four
days, which would give thirty days
from Sidney to London and twenty-six
days from Auckland to London through
the United States. Thia beats anything
that Canada offered by the Canadian
Pacific Railway. The Atchison would
have advantage over the Canadian
line in the absence of suow blockades,
whioh wero so very bad through, Canada. If San Diego were made the
mail terminus steamers would come
on hero afterwards and San Franoisco
trade would not be interfered with.
It would be an advantage to San Diego
and Los AngeloB, as passengers might
land there before coining on here.
TO I'lOHT PADDY  KYiN.
Cheyenne, Wy., July 20.—Jack
Burke, accompanied by Paddy Carroll

A BLOODY AFFKAY.

four victims of the bloody affair. MeNeerney having died last night.
SUCCESSFULLY  LAUNCHED.
San Fkancisco, July 20.—The new
str. Premier built for the Canadian Pacific Railway Co., was successfully
launched at tho docks of the Union
Iron Works this afternoon.
NEWSl'APEK WAR,
ELFASO.Tex., July 20.—The newspaper war here barely escaped result-
in tragedy today. The limes and the
Inter-Eejiublic have been indulging in
personal warfare for some time past,
which reached a climax on Sunday
morning by the editor of the Times
making a statement that the editor of
his cotomporary " Belonged in the
penitentiary rather than in a newspaper ottice." The editors of the Inter-Republic, Geo. B. Lowing and Orth
H. Stein, at once went gunning for
Juan I. Hart, editor of tho rimts, who
happoned to be out of tho city. Upon
his return Monday ho was welcomed
by the Inter-PrtMtc in a leading editorial calling him a "bar, paltroonand
cur." This was more than Hart could
stand aud arming himself with a shot
gun he started out with an employee
of his named Wimbody who wns armed
with a revolver. Stein was met in the
street near the stairway nnd Hart
ordered him to throw up his liands.
Instead of doing so Stein ran up stairs.
At this point nn officer appeared and
arrested Stein, Hart nnd Witnborly
and placed them under bonds to keop
the pence. During all this time Hart
stood across tho streot and did not in-
torofore. Stein wns brought here a
yoar atro eharged with forging n check
on tho Now York Sun. He lay in jail
hero until about May 1st when he waa
released on bail, awaiting trial on a
requisition from the governor of Mississippi, whore Stein is wantird on another charge of forgery. Stein killed
a mnn at Kansas Oity a few years ago
and hns a bnd record in mnny localities.
Last woek ho hnd beeu employed by
tho Now York /leraW to visit Baovis-
pa, Mexico, and investigate tho

EXCITING; TIMES IN BULGARIA.
Paris, July 20.—A dispatoh from
Vienna to tho Temps snjB: "The Bui-
garinn govornment is interrupting
telegrams to nnd from tho Bulgarian
capital, and thoir havo been violent
scenes in tho Bobrnnje. Tho members
of tho opposition, including Ex-Pro-
mior RuuostnvofT, being forcibly expelled.
RATHER TOO REALISTIC.
Clinton, Iowa, July 20.—Four people were shot during tho "Wild West"
performance of Sells Bros', circus
Tuesday night. Geo. Harrington,
aged 17, was shot in the forehead and
wdl die; Mrs. W. A. Lambortson was
shot in the left breast, just abovo tlio
heart, dangerously; Wallaco Phillips,
aged 10, was shot ou tho top of the
head; ho is not very seriously wounded; ono of the Indians was shot low
and badly hurt; tho extent of the injury is not known; he was immediately
taken away. No cause is given for
using bullets, oxcopt that tho cow
boys got tho wrong rovolvors. It was
during nn encounter of cow boys nnd
Indians in the ring,
IRISH  BILL—AMERICAN INVESTMENTS —
BLAINE.
London, July 20.—At a meeting today the Irish Conservatives decided
not to oppose amendments to the land
bill accepted by Lord Salisbury. '■ The
changes made in the bill to lessen opposition to the measure that it ie expected tho bill will pan the committoa ,
stage in a week. . A financial paper
'fft'is evening published an interview
with Low, the New York counoillor-at-
law,'at which the latter imparted the
opinion of the alien act given: by
Attorney-general Garland to President
Cleveland. This opinion hi to the
effect. that it does apply to mines or
inheritable interests: in real estate;
that aliens can lawfully hold stocks in
American corporations owning mineral
lands in the territories, provided such
aliens may advanco money with which'
to develop the mines, but they cannot
obtain an interest in -real estate
through BUch advances; that they may', ,
lawfully contract with American Owners to work mines. Low adds his'own
opinion that aliens can dodge the aet
legally by putting their money in 99
year leases.! An exploring expedition /
headed by Joseph Manson is about to
start for Lake Chad, central Africa.
Andrew Carnegie supplies the bulk of
the funds to defray expenses of the,
expedition. Blaine decided not to go '
to Spithead to witness the jubilee
naval review. Senators Hawley and
Frye and Murat Halstead will accompany the diplomatic corps to Spithead.
EXTORT OF CHINESE BONES.
San Francisco, July 20.—A Chinaman named Wing Yung reported to "
the health officer to-day that ho baa
taken a contract to remove 400 bodies
of Chinese from the city cemetery to
China. For each permit of disinter- '
ment Yung must pay $10.
STANLEY RETORTED DEAD.
London, July 21.—A despatch from
St. Thomas, West Africa, says the
West African Oo. has secured a report
that Henry M. Stanley, the African
explorer, has been shot dead by natives
with whom his expedition was fighting
in order to obtain supplies. Another
account says that the steamer on which
Stanley was proceeding to the relief of
Emin Bey, was sunk and that the explorer was drowned. The report em-
ananates from a missionary at Matadi,
who received it from natives from up
the oountry. No direct message hu
been received from the expedition.
A HORRIBLE AFFAIR.
New York, July 21.—A gang of
Italian laborers were ballasting on the
Erie railway on a sharp curve abont....
three-fourths of a mile above Hopokus.
The Chicago express was an hour late
aad rushed round tbe curve before the
men had the slightest warning and
dashed through them killing XT or 15
on the spot and wounding many otban.
The shrieks of the victims were heart-
rending, and when the train slowed up
the track presented a sickening right,
being covered with mangled bodies,
rails splashed with blood, and broken
-limbs and pieces of ragged flesh being
scat^red in all directions. Some
bodies were mangled beyond description and crushed out of all resemblance
of humanity. To most of the victims
death must have come instantly, bat
some of them appear to be yet groaning and the life ebbing away. When
the train wu brought to a stand still,
there was only 15 minutes delay, aad
the train which had wrought so muoh
disaster proceeded on its way from
Allendale to Hopokus.
DISCREDITED.
London, July 21.—Rumors regarding the death of H. M. Stanley is utterly discredited here. The latest authentic news from him wu from Ara-
wiini, and was sent under date of June
2nd, and it would be impossible for the
natives to reach Matadi and Arawimi
nlone, as it is a thousand miles through
a very hot country.
TBE CHOLERA SCOUROX.
Rome, July 21.—Twenty-five deaths
from cholera occurred in Catania daring 24 hours.   People are panic-strick-
Robbers aro  pilfering houses j
whose owners have fled to escape the
scourge.
A PRIZE FIGHT.
Providence, July 21.—Near the
Connecticut line, and not far from a
lonely little village, lut night, there
was gathered the largest crowd of
sports that the steje ever saw, at a prise
ring contest between Ike Weir,'a Belfast sparrer, and Jacob Hamlin. After

A few days ago a number of
prominent American gentlemen met
Mr. and Mrs. Gladstone at a garden
party near London and presented
him with n magnificent and costly
piece of silver as an expression of
esteem from 10,689 eitiiens of New
York,, The grand old man was, of
course, muoh gratified by this mark
of appreciation from America, whose
good opinion he had always valued
highly.- II is stated that Mr. Gladstone now begins to think favorably
of tbe invitation to America so
often repeated and earnestly urged,
He would without doubt meet with
a most wvthusiastio reception everywhere on this continent.
The. growth of the United States
in wealth is very remarkable. It is
estimated that each year $800,000,
000 is added to the national wealth.
From various statistics it is learned
that during the first half of this
year 1600,000,000 has been invested
in new buildings, in railway construction, arid in enterprises in the
south. ' That is, the people have
spent for improvements in the half
year $200,000,000 more than they
have fairly earned. This Bum must
have been token from deposits which
ought to be available for commercial
purposes, or it most have been borrowed. In these circumstances the
New York Tribune sees signs of the
wonderful strength as woll as the
dangers of the republic.
Within the past few days thero
have been two collisions among
British ironclads, and although the
damage done may not be very serious, the effect of these accidents
must be somewhat alarming. The
British navy has no equal in the
world, but if these sea monsters
whioh constitute the backbone of it
are going to run into each other
whenever they go oat together, they
offer no public security at all. Unless things are better managed it
will not be safe for two British
ironclads to go out to sea at the
same time; and if any considerable
portion of the fleet should find it
necessary to join together against
an enemy, it is to be feared they
would sink each other before the
battle had well begun.
Referring to the Columbian's
statements respecting the condition
of the buoys at the Fraser mouth,
the VancouverNews says: "So from
the beginning of July till some indefinite time in August, the vessels
entering the Fraser are to have a
kind of go-as-you-please arrangement If they get in without going
aground, it will be all right. If
they should not, it will be their
misfortune, that is all. We have
not the-pleasure of the acquaintance of Oapt. Lewis, but he is probably of the opinion that in rough
weather when a captain could not
take careful soundings, or on a dark
and stormy night, that he should
not attempt to enter the river at all,
until Oapt Lewis has had an opportunity of taking that little trip on
the Rithet. But the people of the
mainland who are trying to build
up their city, who desire that no
unnecessary difficulty should be put
in the way of vessels seeking to
trade there, will not take this view
of the matter, and will insist that
the persons who have charge of
these things should display, at least,
the same energy as would be shown
by a railway company or a private
individual under similar circumstances."
In its hut issue the Whatcom
Reveille announces that an engineer
with a corps of surveyors has made
a survey of the West Coast Railway as far north as Lake Whatcom.
"From thence," says oar cotemporary, "a line will be surveyed along
the north shore of the lake to the
first passable opening in the hills,
and through this opening into the
lower Notkaack valley, thence across
the country in the direction of
Westminster,     Should  this route
Srove impracticable, a line will then
e ran either from the head of the
lake or from some common point in
the upper Samish valley to the val
ley of the south fork of the Nook-
sack, thenoe down the river to or
near Lyndon, and from thenee to
die boundary line in the direction of
Westminster," From this our co-
temporary concludes that the West
Coast Railway Oo. has abandoned
the projected Hope line, and intends
to make no connection with Whatcom. It calls upon the people,
therefore, to take some steps towards reviving tbe Bellingham Bay
& British Columbia scheme, or they
would wako up some day and find
themselves sidetracked. The abandonment of the Hope route will
bring the only connection to Westminster, whero it ought to be. A
double connection, such as has been
proposed, always seemed to us unjustifiable on any grounds whatever.

A Soldier's Noble Loyally to His Erring
WUe-Healing a Broken Heart.
A decrepit little old man stood on
Broadway down near Trinity Church trying to sell lead pencils, but bad luck at-
tendel his enterprise, and finally disheartened ho fell back from the roadway's edge and leaned agglnst tho Iron
nils that Inclose the hlstorlcold churchyard. -.    v -
And tha old man cried., His antique
hat was dowri over hla oyos, and hurrying passers-by did not'notice his grief,
but he sobbod loudYenough at last as he
edged eft ol Broadway and around Into
the narrow lane ot Rector streot.
A stock-broker's attention was attracted then, and thowoopingold man was accosted. Ho had no story totell, he said,
and wanted to go his way unquestioned,
but Wall-street curiosity lsnot so readily
to be waved aside, and the broker In tho
end elicited the tale tbat he had demanded.
It was a rather Strang* story, and lt
was sad enough to make that, broker
open his purse.
The poor disconsolate old fellow was
a Southerner. He was in the prime of
life, a husband and a father, when the
Rebellion broke out, and he, In devotion
to his State, marched Into the field for
the Confederacy.   .
Before tbe war Was over he lay In a
prison, and afterward was In a hospital
for months at death's door.  .
The fortunes of war had shut off communication with home; thevlllagewhere
that home had been was In ashes, the
site of* battlefield. But as soon as he
was free he hurried to his native State
seeking tidings of wlfo and ohildren.
The boy and the girl ot his household
were dead; the wife—their mother-a
worse fate than death had claimed her.
She was changed, Those who knew the
woman told ot her coquetry with a man
of money and position—a man who,
though not brave enough to wear the
blue, had oome to the Southlnthe Union
Army's van.
He was a Hew Yorker, and finally he
had borne the lngrate wife away to the
North In his company, she avowing herself his wife, her first husband, she Insisted, having fallen on the battlefield.
When the husband heard this story he,
too, started North. Four years he
searched this city and this State over.
In one particular he disbelieved the
tale that he had heard South; he oould
not aeoept as true the assertion that Ms
wife had willingly wronged him; he hollered that she had really thought him
dead; nor would he put his faith In tho
story that aught but a saered marriage
ceremony had given her to this second
husband.
At the end ot tour years his quest was
rewarded. And he found that the Southern gossips had spoken truly. When he
ventured to seek her presence she spurned him.
This was fifteen year and more ago—
years that brought no brightness to the
old soldier; that hod a change ot fortune for the misled woman.
A year ago her rich husband died. She
was left penniless, oast adrift on the
world. Somehow the news got to tho
ears ot the husband working on a far
Southern farm, reoognused by all as a
mental wreck, and he scraped together a
few dollars and hurried to' the city
again.
He was still In love with the erring
wife, anxious to take her book, luU ol
tilth that lt he and she oould again be
reunited that all would go well, that
prosperity would attend him, and that a
nappy homo lite was certain. He didn't
find nor.   She was dead.
Only a few days ago he learned this.
Then his aim was to add a few more dollars to his hoarded pittance, and have
her coffin taken from this town's Potter's
Field tu the Carolina neighborhood where
she spent her innocent maidenhood,
where she was happy ere tbe glitter of
gold came to tempt her. But hla pencils
wouldn't sell; be was heart-broken, despondent, weary ot 111*.= ';  t 1
The stock-broker who heard this story
has no wife; some men have called him
heartless. But he acted like a mortal
all heart now—he put more money In
that poor bUMellow e hand than the selling ot lead pencils months on months
would have produced.
And tho recipient of this largess was a
new man In*moment; hla last dream
wUI be reallzed.-[New York Times.

Lockr Black Call.
"Get a black cat to like you, though.
and you oan tackle anything on earth and

whose words are reported In the Chicago
Mall.
"I'll bet that tbe men who rnve mado

" I knew a young fellow who was In
love—li over his head—nnd didn't know
enou^a to play lt easy. It was his Urst
offense, and he wasn't potted. His girl
was a thousand miles away, and he used
to write her letters—three ot 'em would
make a book.
"One evening a blaok eat walked Into
his office Just like be owned tha place,
andalzrrd up everybody. Then lt came
to my young lover ana Just climbed up
on his knee while he was writing, cuddled down ud oommenoed to sing. It
was an operatlo cat, and sang like a
prima donna. It kind ot pleased the
young fellow, and he petted ft.
"Alter that It used to come around
and sit on his knee every evening, while
be wrote to his girl, and the way that
girl warmed up was amazing. Sho was
sort ot Indifferent before, but sho became
terribly affectionate as soon as tho black
cat came Into the Rame, Buttheblamed

WASHINGTON DEAD BEATS.
How They  Trap tlie Unwary Stranger,
at the Capital.
"I have Just returned from a trip to
Washington. I havo lost nearly all my
confidence in human nature. I shall
avoid that place as much as possible in
the future."
The speaker was tho agent of a largo
manufacturing house in this city, and
whenever the tariff tinkors get to work
In Congress ho Is sent to Washington to.,
look after the Interests of his lirm.
" I have had considerable experience
In Washington," ho continued, " but my
last trip Jjeats anything1 I have ever
seen. I did not know that thore were
so many tramps and dead beats In the
country.
" I had scarcely finished registering at
Wlllard's when a man In the la t stages
of Intoxication rolled up against me
and claimed my acquaintance. He was
so changed that I did not at first recognize him. His face was bloated, his
eyes bloodshot, his qlrthlng dirty and
everything about him ,stampod him as a
drunken sot.
" I recognized him as a man I had
met a few years ago—a young man of
promise then, but with too great a fondness for Washington whisky and gambling. I gave him a dollar and hurried
away upstairs to my room.
"I had been there halt an hour whon
therowasaknook at my door, and in
response to my summons a decently-
dressed man walked in. I did not know
him from Adam. He apologized for
disturbing me at that hour—it was after
eleven o'clook—and said that ho had
met me with Colonel So-and-so the last
time I was in town. Ho saw my name
In the register down stairs and thought
he would call to pay his respects.
"Curious to learn why he wanted to
pay -his respects to a comparative
stranger, I did not follow my first
Impulse and kick him out of the
room.
" After making a tew perfunctory inquiries about affairs in New York, hs
came to tho main point. As I might
have known.lt was my monoy he wanted.
I forget just how he worded his request,
but his embarrassment, which I bellevo
ho said was temporary, was caused by
the failure of the malls to bring an ex-
pooted romlttanoo. Twonty-flvo dollars
would holp him out. His manner
was perfectly cool, aud ono might havo
Imagined that I bad asked him to do
me a favor.
"I told him, howovor, that I was
short of funds, and I kept all my money
In New York. He waved his hand and
sold:
" 'Oh, It's of no consequence.'
" On my arrival here a few days ago
I found a draft on mo from this man for
$28. He said In a note that ho owed a
bill tor furniture, and he should toko lt
as a favor if I would take up the draft
and allow him to pay for lt by some service ho might bo able to render me In
tho future.
"I met hundreds like him. They
dress pretty well, and the majority of
them have seen botter days.
" It Is wonderful how quickly they
spot a stranger. They do not wait for
an introduction, but throw themselves
In your way and begin conversation at
tho slightest provocation. They have
many ingenious ways, and have reduced
the art of deadboatlsm down to a
science. They could givo tho most experienced bunco man points.
" It I was asked once I was asked fifty
times tor a ./temporary loan,' ana,
what's more ro'i'iiKiitabio, none oi tlio
amounts roquestod, wkli the excoption
notod, exceeded $10.
" What jrrAos tlioso Washington (load
beul.i moie drmgerous is their frequent
disguised Their former position In
many cases gives them a sort of hold on
members und senators, ana tney aro
received In places where the professional
swindler would not dare show his
faco.
" Senator Smith may lntroduco you
to one of these persons without thinking
of or really knowing his true character,
and before you have been In conversation long he will strike you for a loan.
His story la always plausible, and
meeting him as you do you generally
oome down.
"I have paid for my experience."—

THE BRITISH COLUMBIAN
Printing  Company
(LIMITED.)
ON THE 10TH OF JANUARY, 1887,
tlio Columbian Newspaper and
Printing Concern was purchased" by a
joint stock company composed of citizens
cf Now Westminster, to be known ns tho
"British Columbian Printing Co.,
Limited." The concern has boon for
nearly a year owned and controlled by
tho British Columbia Stationery and
Printing Company, of Now Westminster,
Victoria and Vancouver. The object of
thu new company is to continue the publication uf tbo Bmtimi Coi.umhian newspaper and curry on a general printing and
publishing concern, controlled outireiy by
tlioso whoso individual interest it will bo
to promote tlio development, especially
of tho Mainland. Thero will bo no
Blackening of tho energy hitherto displayed in the management of tho establishment, and its patronB may rely upon
receiving full vnluo for their money.
The Columbian will continue to bo entirely ind"epondont in both Dominion and
provincial politics, nnd will dovote itself
to tho advancement of snch schemes as
mny be considered in the publio interest.
Tho concern is now entirely separate from
any other business, the book and
stationery establishment in this city
having been taken over by Mr. T. K.
Pearson, who will continue to carry it on
in his own name and for his own benefit.
It is desirable that a daily newspaper
should be maintained in this oity, and
tbo now company asks for publio patronage on the ground that it is engaged in
an enterprise calculated to promote tho
publio welfare It asks that the Columbian bo judged on its own merits and
supported only so long as its polioy is
enconsistt with its professions. In consequence of this business change all accounts duo tho concern must bo settled
without delay so that tho books of the
former company may bo adjusted and
closed. Address all communications and

mouth of Fraser river.
We are informed that the debt on
St. Faul'a (R. E.) church haa been entirely wiped off. This is very credita-
bletbtteeongrtgation.
The Times lays the Colonist's Bute

At laat the dispute between Britian

There ware quite a number present

•ide fight with Greer. They have removed the construction plant off the
disputed property and left him in possession. The matter will now be left
fer settlement to the courts.
The Dry Dock,—H. M. S, Cormorant was successfully placed in tho new
graving dock at Esquimnlt yestorday.

Railway Siauqhikk. — Another
horrible railway disaster is reported
in our dispatches this after-noon. This
iB evidently the resultof gross carelessness. We hope tho person who is re-
sponsible for this needless and shocking loss of life will be promptly arrested and given an opportunity for sov-
erol .years reflection in state prison.
Such negligence iB criminal, and the
frequent repetition of those disasters
calls for exemplary punishment.
The Last of Stanley, — If it be
true, as stated in our dispatches of
this afternoon, that H. M. Stanley
has been killed, the fact will produce
a sorrow reaching to the utmost limits
of civilization. Dr. Livingstone may
be called the first explorer of Africa,
but no man has done so much as Mr.
Stanley towards opening up the dark
continent. His life has been one of
marvellous escapes from frequent dangers, and people have become accustomed to regard mm as almost invulnerable. His death, if it has really occurred, will bo a groat loss to civilization.

Dispute About Newfoundland- A
telegram appeared in this journal tho
other day stating that Sir Alex, Camp,
bell bad gone to Newfoundland for the
purpose of endeavoring to induce that
colony to enter confederation. A late
despatch from Ottawa says: There is
a diversity of opinion in tho Dominion
cabinet as to the advisability of the
government sending Sir Alex. Campbell to Newfoundland to negotiate
with that colony on its entry into the
Dominion, and as forming a part of the
union of the British North America
provinces. The protest,- it is understood, comes from tho minister of
finance, Sir Charles Tupper, who holds
that the alliance, in view of the destitute and embarrassed state of the
colony, would only throw an additional responsibility on tbe almost depleted
treasury of the Dominion.

White's Visit, — Hon. Thomas
White, Minister of the interior, starts
west on the 20th inst. Hu will proceed direct to the Pacific coast following in this respect the programme lie

of the Interior will stop at Kamloops,
Banff Hot Springs aud Calgary. At
Swift Current he will leave tho
railway, proceeding northward to
Battleford by trail. Mr. White
will not visit Prince Albert this
year. If time permits ho will visit
the southern portion of East Assiniboia.
After stopping nt Brandon he will sub
sequently spend live or six days at
Winnipeg before -returning to Ottawa.
The special object of his trip is to see
settlers and inspect tho various land
agencies.
Intebioii Items.—Mr. H. M. Strain-
berg yesterday returned frum on extended trip to tho interior, visiting
Okanagan, Priest's Valley and Grand
Prairie and other prosperous settlements in that section of the country.
He also visited the mines of Mr. G. B.
Wright at lllioillewael. He says Mr.
Wright has twenty claims located and
that already there is enough ore in
light to pay for all the expense incurred in the developing of the mine
heretofore. Illieillewaet is becoming
quite a lively little town. The O. P. R.
have had the place surveyed and tho
lots are now on the market; and in
consequence a great many buildings
and dwellings are being put up. The
railroad company is building large
snowsheds in the vicinity, nnd this increases the activity. The Rock Creek
discovery has produced tremendous
excitement in Okanagan. It is said
that aome of the ore will yield 822,000
to the ton, and there are millions of
dollars worth of it in sight.

More Severe storms.
By Associated Press.
Pittsbubg, July 20.—The protracted hot spell was broken to-night by
the heaviest storm known hero since
the great Butchers Run disaster 13
years ago, when nearly 200 people
were drywnod. Fortunately to-night's
storm was not attended by any fatalities. As far as could bo learned at
midnight tho damage to property,
however, was heavy and will reach at
least §100.000. The storm broke over
the city about 0 o'clock aud in two
hours IH inches of rain had fallen.
Water poured down tho hill streets,
flooding cellars and washing away foundations to houses in tho hill districts.
Many houses wero rendered unsafe
and soveral wero completely wrecked.
At Butchers Run tho sewers bocamo
clogged up and tho water overflowing
tilled tho houses to a depth of soveral
foet. No ono was injured, however,
but a number of houses were washed
from thoir foundations. Outside tho
city small streams overflowed their
banks, doing great damage Telegraph
wires are down in all directions, and
heavy washouts aro reported on tbo
railroads leading east and west from
tho city. At midnight the rain was
still falling with indications for its continuance to-night. The mercury
touched 92 this afternoon, but foil 23
degrees before 11 o'clock to-night.
Five fatal cases of sunstroke occurred

The Thin Canxot Gain in Weight
if they arc troubled with dyspopua, because tho food is not converted into the
due proportion of nourishing blood which
alone can furnish the demerits of flesh.
But thero is no reason, when this wearing, attenuating disease is conquered by
Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Bitcov*
firy, ,>vhy .there should not be an appreciable gain in weight, which indeed is
usually tlie case. It is a peerless remedy
also for Constipation, Liver Complaint,
Kidney troubles, and roots out all impurities from the blood.
From ladner's Landing.
(Correspondence ol tho Columbian.)
Ladners, July 20.—This fine weather is being taken advantage of by our
farmers, who are harvesting their hay,
and the demand is bo great that it is
being baled in the field and shipped as
fast as possible at §17.50 per ton on
tbe wharf here. Tho crop is short, aa
will be that of oats and potatoes. A
hundred ton lot of hay is reported
sold in Victoria at fifteen dollars
per ton here. Tho canneries are
disappointed in tho run cf Hah, and
only enough salmon are caught for the
cannery to run half time, Several
parties appeared before W, H. Lndner,
Esq., J. P., and T. Mowat, Esq,, J. V.,
charged with breaking the fishery laws
by fishing before (j ou Sunday lust.

Jas. Shannon, Leaskdale, writes: For
many years my wife was troubled with
chilblains, and could get no relief until
about two years ago; she was thou not
able to walk, and the pain was then bo
excruciating that she could not sleep at
