Out-Door Recreation,
When the oity loan scheme waft
being discussed some mouths ago we
suggested tlmt in that scheme should
be included a sum sufficient to level
off and improve one of our public
squares. But as the loan bylaw
never saw the light of day this suggestion was, of course, fruitless. We
need not now express regret at the
failure of the loan scheme. At one
time the probabilities of its being
carried into effect were very considerable, but conflicting opinions
and an apparent distrust seem to
have crept into the minds of the city
councillors, and it was deemed prudent to squelch the scheme before it
resulted in more serious mischief.
In consequence of that failure tbe
permanent improvements contemplated in the spring must be abandoned, or nt least stand over for the
present. This is much to be regretted. Permanent improvements, if
undertaken with prudence and carried out with economy, would not
only add much to the attractiveness
and development of the city, but
would, in many cases, become an
important source of revenue. It is
to be hoped the city council and the
city ratepayers may come to jrercoive
tho fact that well-directed enterprise
on the part of u corporation is ns
commonly successful as individual
enterprise, and is sure to bring the
corporation into prominence and
favor. But if we cannot agree upon
a scheme of general improvement,
thore are certain items upon which
it may be possible to unite. We
believe the proposal concerning a
publio park or square should not be
lost sight of because the genoral improvement scheme has collapsed.
We havo already pointed out that
there are in this city very fow
sources of healthful recreation. The
man whose occupation forces him to
remain within doors most of the day,
with his intellectual faculties stunned by unremitting application, must
have both exercise and recreation.
The expenditure of mental energy
exhausts tlie physical powers quite
as much as muscular effort. But
while the body may recuperate by
simple rust and quiec, the mind is
not so easily controlled nnd will not
cease its activity at our bidding. The
mind wants recreation. It wants to
be diverted from the channels of
action in which it exhausted itself.
The body wants exercise, and to bo
effectual that exercise should be of a
sort congenial to the mind. -Sawing
wood or turning a grindstone is excellent exercise, but "there are not
tnauy who regard it as recreation—
it promotes no congenial mental
notion, Now, we aro of opinion that
as a rule the peoplo of this city work
too hard, This is esjieoially the ease
with business mon. They stick to
the shop from early day till bed
time, and never permit themselves
to indulgo iu such amusements aud
recreations as nature needs to restore
the wasted onergies of body and
mind. This high-pressure existence
may continue for a long time where
the constitution is vigorous, but
total collapse must be the result,
There should be diversity of pursuit
as muoh as variety of diet. Wo
doubt if thero can be found anywhere a town as large and wealthy
as New Westminster where provision
has not been made for public recreation. Hera we havo absolutely
nothing, There are a few croquet
lawns in the city belonging to private individuals; but even these aro
seldom used, aud some of them aro
grown .over with grass which would
yield four tons to the acre. We have
no gymnasium, uo rowing club, no
cricket club, no base ball, no lacrosse.
Ami there in no place where healthful guinea can lie played. Twenty
years ago there was n fairly good
cricket uluh iu this city, but it bus.
long since gone to oblivion, and tlm
playground lias very nppfoprlately
become the site of a lunatic asylum.
This institution stands out conspicuously as a warning to those who neglect the claims of nature for the
, recuperation of energy. Let us have
some out-door recreation. Lot tbo
eity council lay out one of the most
suitable squares, level it, and put it

in such a shape as will make it available as a place of public-resort and
amusement. If this were done we
are sura there is energy and public
spirit enough among our young men
to provide the necessary materials
for crioket, baseball, lacrosse, and
othor health-giving recreations. Tii
park would add greatly to the city's
attractions, und it would undoubted
ly be valuable as a means of promoting physical and mental vigor.
§cw\Mfit Jftisalhmj).
Two successful aerial trips havo been
made by Mods. Pompeieu with an
elongated balloon, and on the second
ascent a change in the course of the
air-ship was obtained by simply moving a rudder with which it hod been
provided,
Mons. Angot has been investigating
the influence of altitude upon vegetation. He finds that the harvest-time
for winter wheat is retarded in France
four days, on an average, for every increase of about 350 feet in the height
of tho land above the level of the sen.
An interesting mountain exploration is being attempted in India. Two
mountaineers, one an experienced
Swiss guide, have left Darjeeling with
the purpose of reaching tho highest
possible point on the great Kinchinjin-
ga, one of the very loftiest peaks of
the globe.
Even the foeble rays of tho moon
hnve nn influence upon plants. In a
paper road to the Paris Academy of
Sciences Mons, Musset states that
plants very sensitive to light and heat
were grown from seeds in pots occupying a very dark place. Thoy were
then on three nights exposed to direct
moonlight, when the stoma bent over
toward the moon and followed it in its
course.
The importance to tree-growth of an
abundance cf water is woll illustrated
by nn observation of Mons. Capua. In
the botanic garden nt Samarcande,
Turkestan, an Aitanthns glandnlmits
grew abotit eight inches during the
first year; thirteen inches in the second, nnd thirty-live inches in the
third. The soil was not irrigated during tliese three years, but in tho
fourth year, when irrigation-water was
supplied, the growth of tlie tree was
over thirty feet.
Dis. Sillier wood and Hanlnu have
expressed the belief that excessive
mental work produces a rapid decay of
the teeth. As an explanation of the
alleged fact, another writer suggests
tliat the over-worked brain steals all
the phosphates and leaves none for the
teeth, or else that too much study
causes the general health to deteriorate. The Lancet doubts if excessive
mental work can of itself induce serious disease, but thinks it more probable that ill effects result from the w-jr-
ry—whioh wears upon the system like
friction upon the engine—attending
such work.
Some experiments noticed by Dr.
A. J. Wall indicate that the bite of
the American rattlesnake is far less
deadly thau that of certain snakes
found iu other parts of the world. In
four fatal cases of rattlesnake poisoning in dogs, the animals survived for
an average period of about two hours
and a half after being bitten; and at
least five dogs experimented upon recovered completely, The dogs bitton
by the Indian cobra all died within au
average period of less than thirty-five
minutes; and those poisoned by the
Australian hoplocephalus lived only
one hour and twenty-four minutes,
Messrs, Wroblewski and Olszewski,
two Polish experimeuters, havo succeeded in obtaining both oxygen and
nitrogen in a perfectly liquid form.
The liquids are colorless and transparent, resembling carbonic acid. The
liquefaction was produced under the
combined notion of intense cold and
great pressure. At a temperature of
212.8 degrees below zero Fahrenheit,
a pressure of about 25 atmospheres—
or 375 pounds to the square inch—
readily liquefied oxygen iu glass tubes.
At tho same temperature nitrogen still
retained its gaseous form when a pressure of 150 atmospheres liad been
reached; but a gradual diminution of
the pressure to about 50 atmospheres
yielded the liquid, which quickly evaporated.

Tlm statistics of Paris juBt published
establish tho claim of the city to bo
the moat cosmopolitan In Europe,
Wtiothor it bo a thing to bo proud of
or not, Paris ii chiefly inhabited by
a population who are not. Parisians.
Out of 100 residents only 30 aro born
within tho limits of the town; the remaining 70 are provincials and foreigners. Peoplo como and make their
money or como nnd spend their money
in the capital, or those who have made
it leavo Paris and Eettle in the country.
True-born Parisians are tlie exception,
not the rule. The classification of the
foreigners is unexpectedly misleading.
Neither political importance nor commercial prosperity seems to regulate it.
Wo might think the English as being
neighbors, a trading people, and a
poople fond of colonizing., would be
tho best represented. But they come
rather near the end: much after the
Swiss, and very much aftor the Belgians. Only 10 per ceut. of the stung-
era aro English, while tho subjects of
King Leopold are nearly 50 per ceut.
But it is in the case of Ihe Germans
that wi- meet the most surprising of
the Parisian statistic-*. Thoy have always been very' strung iu Paris, muoh
stronger than thu English and tho
Americana combined. In uumbeis
they formal percent, of tho strangers.
But the curious Incident uf their occupation of the city is that it has boen
steadily on the increase, and has taken
a decided impulse since the Franco-
German war. In 187(1 they wore only
10 per cent, and now they aro more
than 31. On tho whole, it appears
from the census returns that though
the population of Paris has increased
since the last statistics wore published,
the incrcas haa chiefly consisted in the
foreign resident!.—Pott Mall Gazette,

The Steam Ferry*
Tenders for the eatablishmennt
and maintenance of a steum ferry
across the Fraser at this city will be
receWed by tho mayor up till 8 o'clock on Monday night, the 25th
inst From the advertisement which
appears in another column it will be
seen that tenderers have vory great
latitude, and surely some sort of
proposal will be made. It may be
mentionod that the provincial government at last session set aside
$1000 as a bonus for this ferry, provided the conditions of the charter
wera such as would be approved, It
is quite possible the municipalities
would conjointly give a small additional bonus payable yearly for a
limited number of years. We have
more tban once expressed the opinion
that the charter will become a very
valuable franchise within a very
short period. Immigrants still continue to arrive in large numbers, and
so soon as the railway lands are
thrown open there will be an immediate settlement of the waste places
across the river. At the other side
of the boundary line there are hundreds ready to cross whenever these
lands become available for settlement. The traffic across the river is
certain to increase, and all this traffic
must go by the steam ferry. We
hope those who are in a position to
take up this enterprise will not neglect the opportunity that is now
being offered.
The License Court.
At the license courts held yesterday, for the city and district of New
Westminster, all the applications for
licenses were refussd. It must be
obvious to any observer that there
are now more hotels in this city than
the exigencies of public travel and
convenience require. Some of those
now holding licenses are nothing but
drinking-places—they are in no sense
houses for the accommodation of
travelers. In view of the fact that
the number of licenses will probably
be materially reduced next year,
when tbe new Dominion Act comes
into operation, it would surely be
unwise to increase the number now.
There were two applications from
Port Moody. Now, we have already pointed out that the new Act
cannot allow Fort Moody more than
two hotels, probably not more than
one. Bui there are already two licensed houses at Fort Moody, and
that is enough. We understand
that the Port Moody gentlemen who
applied for licenses yesterday were
greatly disappointed at the action of
the court. But the magistrates are
bound to consider the requirements
of the place where a license is asked,
and not the exigencies of the persons who apply for them. It is
surely possible to open and maintain
a public house without selling liquor,
but this is something which some of
these persons seem quite unable to
comprehend.
What "Hansard" Says.
There is no question of greater
importance to the main.ami of British Columbia at the present moment
than that of the opening of the railway belt. The provincial newspapers
have given us no information on
this Bubject beyond what was contain •
ed in the published reports of Sir
John Macdonald's speech. These
reports were taken from Toronto pa-
- pars, and were certainly calculated
to leave the impression that the
lands would be thrown open for settlement, without reference to the
dry-dock and island railway questions. We have before us Hansard
containing the official report of Sir
John's speech, and it certainly confirms that impression. Sir John said:
"Another question, which is considered of great importance in British
Columbia is the opening up of all
the lands for settlement on the mainland, on each side of the railway now
rapidly in course of construction.
Immigration, I am happy to say, is
now Rowing from the south into
British Columbia. Immigration has
gone in there this year, I believe, to
a larger extent than has been the
case for a good many years; and
these lands are sought for eagerly by
intending settlers and by the navvies
and persona employed in the construction of the road, from Yale up
to Kamloops, on the Onderdonk contract. There need be no deadlock or
delay in that matter. The intention
of tbe Canadian government is to instruct Mr. Trutch to confer with the
British Columbia government, to organize at once a land office for the
pnrpoae of putting the lands on each
lide of the railway into the market
iaMdiattl/i and to open them for
settlement on liberal terms. It is
part of the agreement which is to bo
carried out that the terms should be
liberal." This surely seems definite
enough, and we cannot see how the
Canadian government could refuse
to open these lauds this season without a direct breach of the promise
made by Sir John.
NEW8 FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Ottawa, May 25.—H. E. the Governor-General, H.R.H.PrinceBsLouise,
accompanied by a large mite, and
Samuel L. Clemens (Mark Twain) on-
joyed a ride on the Chaudiere timber
slides on a raft last evoning. Tho
party embarked on tho raft, which was
specially prepared at the head of the
slides, near Rochester's Baw mill. Mr,
W. A. Humphrey acted as pilot, and
with the assistance of a gang of raftsmen brought the crib over tho slides,
and into the Otta xa river bolow. Tho
ferry steamer between Hull and the
slide conveyed tho party from tho raft
to shore, where carriages were in waiting,
Winnipeg, May 29. —■ Thu Local
House divided to-night on tho amendment to tho Address, nnd resulted in a
straight party vote, 18 for tho Government and 8 for the Opposition.
Mr. Goulot, who was supposed to bo
elected as Opposition, voted with tho
majority. Three Bents, Portage La
Prairie, Emerson, and St. Agatho,
were not represented.
\ViNim*Ka,May31.—The sito of a
city on the Saskatchewan, to ho called
Leopold, waa fixed on tho recent visit
of General Manager Van Home. Tho
sito occupies a beautiful location on
tho east bank of the Saskatchewan on
a plateau forty feot high, Gradora are
scattered west of the river for a distance of a hundred and twenty miles
towards Calgarry. Fivo thousand
men and two thousand five hundred
teams aro employed on ths construction,
Pahis, June 9. -The plot of tho
Franco-Chinese difficulty daily thickens. The thrill thnt passed through
France at the news of tho fato of the
gallant Riviorie is now tempered by an
apprehension of possible consequences.
Tho reactionary and radical papers
predict that the republic will Iind a
Mexico in China, and twit the republic with having sent a spirited naval
commander to Tonquin to conduct
military operations. The Clarion
goes so far as to detect, in the affairs
with China, the finger of Bismarck and
a preponderance of Germanism, nnd
puts tho case somewhat as follows:—
"Tho triple allianco being an accomplished fact the only remaining ally of
Fiance is Russia. To neutralize this
alliance and thus complete the isolation of France, is the object of France's
most bittor enemy. China oilers tho
means for the accomplishment of such
an end. With China organized for
war and threatening an invasion, Russia would be forced to employ a vast
army in protecting her own frontier in
Asia, anu for offensive purposes Europe would be powerless."
New York, June 7.-—A Herald
Washington special of Juno 6th siws:
In nn interview this morning with Chi
Yoang, Secretary of tho Chinese Legation at Washington, ho stated that no
important dispatches had been received here in reference to the ponding
rupture, but thero was no doubt that
if Franco should refuse to recognize
tho sovereign protectorate of China
over its dependency of Anam, hostilities would l)e inevitable; that whilo tho
causo of quarrel was strictly between
the Anuine.ii! nnd the French, China
could not afford to permit any interference of Franco, even if countenanced by tho King of Anam, a vassal of China, and would interpose at
all hazard. For this purpose tho Viceroy Li had already beon ordered to
tako command of the Chinese troops
and the Chinese fleet ordered to Tonquin, Chi Young expressed great interest in tho impending war, and said
it was natural tliat tho national pride
of Chinamen ahonld be aroused when
threatened by a European Power, from
tho fact that foreign nations had boen
accustomed to believe in the impotency
of tho Chinese as u warlike people.
Ho said that China was anxious to
demonstrate the great improvements it
had made in the modem arts and sciences and ita great progress in tho art
of warfare. It was perhaps owing to
this feeling tliat there is now such a
strong war party in China. It must
bo remembered, ho aaid, that China is
a different nation to what it was fifty
years ago. They havo now all the
modern improvements in rifles, muskets, light and heavy artillery, mortars, shells, etc., besides well-drilled
troops. Tho Chinese navy now consists of between fifty and sixty effective ships, and a number of ironclads
and steel-plated vessels have lately
beon ordered from England and Germany, so that Franco will not find
China helpless on laud or sen. It
would bo easy for China to concentrate
from 100,000 to 150,000 men alone
from the southern provinces, and, if
necessary, 600,000 troops can be in a
short time marched to tho Hold. It is
oxpected that tho Chinese war ships
would prevent the landing of the
French troops at Tonquin, but should
fighting commence on land the scientific engineers of China aud their fortifications would sorely test the French
troops. Another element in favor of
the Chinese is that Tonquin, being
much further south than Algiers, the
French could nnt stand the climate so
well ob Chinamen. Altogether, the
preponderance of opinion, he said, was
in favor of keeping tho dignity of the
Chinese Government, and hostilities
would not bo regarded with disfavor.
Oorunna, Juno 10.—An English
brig recently hoisted a Fenian flag,
green ground and a white cross in the
centre, and at the same timo wns flying a small English Hag at hor foremost. The English consul sent n messenger to ordor the captain to lower
tho green flag, aud the messenger met
with rough treatment on the vessel.
The consul summoned the Spanish
coast guard, and a party of armed sailors boarded tho vessel and removed
the objectionable flag.
San Fkanuihco, June 11,—It is reported that a company with a capital
stock of ?5,000,000 will soon bo organized to build a railroad connecting
Kootenay lake, B. 0., with thu Columbia, Capt. John C. Ainsworth nnd his
son George J. aro at tho head of the
scheme. A large port of tho capital
stock is subscribed. Tho last legislature granted a franchise for the road
and donated 750,000 acres. Tho route
is from Shuswap lake as direct as possible through Eagle putt to tho Columbia river. The road will also aot

Tiio Nortii Arm settlement was never

now. Land is increasing in value, and
crops are looking extremely well. In
addition to his other large purchases,
Mr. Vermelyoa has bought 200 acres
from the McMium Bros, for which I
understand he paid $0,500, The crops
this year will probably run about one-
quarter over lust yenr. They principally consist of oats, barley, hay, and
roots. There is very little fruit hero,
our farmers having planted very fow
trees. Lately more attention has been
given to this branch, however, and it
is believed this will yet heaome one of
the best fruit districts in the province.

The supremo court met on tho 7th
inst., Mr. Justice Crease presiding.
There were only 3 serious cases, all
Chilcotin Indians. The two charged
with murdering Chinamen last April
wero found guilty and sentenced to bo
hanged in September next. One of
thom, Jakio, confessed and showed
penitence, but the other bore his sentence, like a true red-man, with stolid
firmness. They are to bo sent to Now
Westminster for execution. The burglar wns sentenced to 4 years iu the New
Westminster penitentiary. During
court the judge issued n summons to a
juryman who for four consecutive
courts hud refused to appear, and he
wns fined $100. The partiality hitherto shown would certainly hnvo eventually interfered with the administration
of justico, but this may have a salutary
effect in allowing that contempt of
court is a dangerous practice. The
weather is very lino, and abundant
rains have given promise of a bountiful
harvest.
Tub Sound Boom.—Mr. Jas. Kennedy arrived in this city a few days

hundreds and thousands, and nil the
available land is being taken up with
such rapidity that there will soon be
none left. A great deal of the land is
very inferior to that in British Columbia, but peoplo nre buying it nnd
qunrrelling ovor it evory where. Wnsh*
ington Torritory is settled right up to
the boundary line, and towns and
oities nre springing up everywhere,
Mr. Kennedy thinks n stago line from
Semiahmoo to this city would pay, as
many poople are anxious to come ovor

boom will vory soon ranch British Columbia, and our railway lands should
bo openod at once.

From Mud Bay to Ltidner'8.
(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
He who has not seen this part of the
country at this season of the year has
missed a rare pleasure. Nature arrayed
greets one iu her brightest dress and
sweetest smile. As one ascends the
hill from Mud Bay flowers of nil kinds,
indigenous to the place, are on either
band and scattered through the wood.
Dogwood, flowering currant, elder,
wild oherry, wild crabapple and wild
pea, berry blossoms, clover, dtolotus,
trillium, anemony and "wee modest
crimson tipped flower" spread their
beauty or exhale their fragrance. The
graceful vine maple reclines cushioned
with its velvet of green, while tho
long, fine tendrils of pale-green moss
festoon tho upper branches of tho
giant firs, Feins of almost every size
and variety hedge the road, somo peeping above the ground; others iu tho
form of a solitary stem, with branches
and leaves as yot undeveloped; others
again tall and spreading, complete in
f tarts, perfect in form. Some depend
ike feathers from the trunks and
branches of the trees, and, touched by
the gentle breeze, nod to tho passer-by.
Every bend J the road reveals fresh
beauties of flower and tree uml fern
until you reach the brow of a steep
hill and pause to look* at the scone
that lies before. From the foot of the
hill a level, rich bottom stretches away
so far that the waters of tho Gulf are
lost to viow, and tho mountains that
lie beyond seem to bound tho plain.
At the base of the hill, sheltered by
a little house and further protected by
a floor placed around is a spring as
clear and pure as Horace's lovod Bai*
iieiiu fount. After rounding a clump
of bushes one enters fully upon tho
prairie, Newly dug ditches reveal a
dopth of throe foot and a half of coal-
black soil. Some of the residences
along the road aro all that could be
desired, with, surroundings indicative
of industry, thrift and taste. Cattle
roam over the unfuucod portions of
the country and feed upon the tall,
rich grass, The quality of grain, hay
and vegetables raised from tho laud
under cultivation is pronounced first-
class and the yield wonderful.   Hero

Editor Columbian.—1 see by your
paper that the government contemplates
giving a mail service between Seattle
and New Westminster, via Semiahmoo,
und they also contemplate establishing a
post ofiiee at Hall's Prairie, Now, can
we not havo a mail service between
Hall's Prairie and Seminhmoo? What Is
the uso of having these post offices opposito each ether, only a milo or bo apart,
and yet having letters travel about 200
miles to get from ono to tho other ? Or,
better still, couldn't we have tire entire
Seattle mail carried overland from Semiahmoo to Now Westminster? Passengers
coming from Seattle to New Westminstor could savo 4 hours timo by getting
off at Semiuhnioo and crossing by stage
(14 miles) to New Westminster j for
who, when he had come to Semiahmoo,
would want to tako a 50 milo trip round
by the mouth of the Fraser, when he is
already within 14 miles of New West-
minster ? This, it scorns to me, would
also be a first step towards getting a railway built across. I think the people of
New Westminster, and especially those
interested in the railway, should look
into this matter.—Yours truly,

High License.
The two-year history of high license
in Nebraska tells the story. In that
State the movement was met nt the
outset with the same stubborn and
vindictive resistance which it has encountered in thia State, It was bitterly antagonized by the saloonkeepers
as n class, and thoy brought to bear
nil the influence they could command,
including bribery, to defeat it. They
persuaded the Germans that it was intended as au interference with their
personal rights, that it was in offset
prohibition, that it would raise the
price of thoir beer, that it would necessitate a reduction in the size of tho
glasses, etc. On the other hand, the
Prohibitionists iu thu State were largely arrayed against it on the ground
that it would prove an obstacle in tho
way of realizing thoir fanatical dream
of preventing men from drinking by
coercion. Tho politicians were warned
that it would prove to be the destruction of their ambition for future preferment. Some of the Republican
members wero frightened off from supporting the measure, but enough Democrats, representing respectable constituents, were induced to fill their
places, and a bill was passed fixing
$1,000 for tho cities of more than 10,-
000 inhabitants (applying only to Omaha and Lincoln for the present) and
S500 for all the other communities in
the State as the minimum chargo for
the privilege of Belling liquor at retail.
This was done about two years ago,
and within the brief period since that
time the law has taken such strong
hold upon tbe peoplo by its beneficial
effects that the leaders of both parties
are claiming a share of tho credit of its
passage.— Chicago Tribune.
The Fishery Exhibition.
WHAT BRITISH COLUMBIA SNOWS.
Among the delayed exhibits from
British Columbia, which only arrived
yesterday at South Kensington, is a
Bet of photographs to illustrate tho
fisheries, taken by direction of the
Governor-General when he paid a visit
not long ago to tho Pacific shores.
Onu of these photographs shows how
numerous the salmon are at certain
times of the year in tho streams of
British Columbia, for the camera has
been so placed that the salmon can be
Been in tho water thick as minnows.
Two little tin boxes, such as are used
for packing sardines contain fish which
comes with a special recommendatory
note of introduction to medical mon.
It is called tho Ooolahan, and what
kind of fish it is may bo soen from
some specimens cured by Indiana,
Thoso in the tins, however, nre not
cured, but simply packed in oil obtained from their own kind, and thoy
form, it is Baid, an excellent artiolo of
diot as a substitute for or in addition
to cod livor oil. This is not the only
curiosity Bent by British Columbia.
In a largo bottlo placed with the series
of specimens of fish, crustacea, mol*
1 uses, &c, preserved in spirits, and
lent by Professor Honoymnn, are several very long whip-like bodies. These,
which are called stick-fish, are not true
fish, but the verrillia blahii of which
tho white, elastic, invertebrate skeleton, about as thick and quite as supple
as tho top pieces of a good trout-rod,

The situation In Russia.
The coronation of the Czar, with its
semi-barbaric display and protected
ceremonials, is ovor at last, and Alexander Aloxandrovich is now the formally aknowledged monarch of nil the
Russian, und endowed, so fnr ns the
officiating prelates und potentates
could confer it, with the divinity that
doth hedge a king, but is not always
au effective protection against dynamite and daggers, Tho promised attack did not tako place, though to
judgo from tho numerous arrests of
suspected partioB the principal reason
for tho postponement of this generally
anticipated feature of the proceedings
was that tlie sinister energy of the nihilists was checkmated by the activity
of the police and government spies, ft
is possible, however, that tho conspirators never seriously intended to assassinate the new Czar during tlio coronation festivities, being willing to accord
him an opportunity of inaugurating
needed political reforms, and using the
throat of asBaasination instead of its
actual accomplishment aa a means of
tempering despotism. But supposing
them to be roally determined upon Ids
death, it is obvious that the coronation
would be tho worst possible timo to
carry their plot to a successful issue.
Tho special activity of the police, the
extraordinary precautions taken to secure the safety of tho imperial person,
and the aroused suspicions of the well-
disposed portion of the population
would havo rendered it almost impossible to consummate hostile designs
against the Czar, even though tho instruments of tho conspiracy wero us
reckless of their own safety aa the
Russian regicides have usually shown
themselves. Though Alexander III
may breathe a trifle more freely now
that hia dreaded Idea of March have
not only como but passed, it is not at
allt certain that tho dangers of hispo-,
Bition nro iu any respect diminished.*
The eternal vigilance which in hia case
is the price, not of liberty, but of life
itaolf, can hardly be so perfectly maintained as to secure his safety from the
attempts of a body so united, resolute,
and resourceful as the nihilists Imve
shown themselves to be. His opportunity of putting an end to the system
of mutual terrorism lies in the adoption of a progressive and conciliatory
policy which, by removing the grievances lying at tlie root of political and
social discontent, will tranquilize the
atmosphere and appease disaffection.
Nihilism in Russia is tho outcome of
tlie shameful injustice and oppression
to whicli large classes of the people
liave been aubjocted either by governments or the favored classes of society.
The most notable feature, about it is
that it includes so large a proportion
of the educated classes who in other
European countries nre practically a
unit on the aide of order. The aitua-
tion in Russia, in fact, presents several
anomalies which prevent any close parallel being drawn witli kindred agitations elsewhere. The peasantry, as a
rule, are loyal and contented—partly
by reason of stolidity, but to a greater
degree because of the sweeping reforms
in tiie land system by which tlieir
rights in the soil have been'secured.
It is in tlie cities and towns, wliere
the oppression of the governmental
and social system is most severely felt,
tliat nihilism flourishes,
The evilB of the Russian system of
absolutism are manifold, and little dependent upon the personal character of
the Czar—who, however despotic in
theory, is us much in the hands of liis
Ministry as any constitutional monarch. But in this case tho Ministers
are irresponsible, nnd tho divided authority, without actual accountability,
naturally encourages the worst nets of
tyranny aud official caprice. The corruption of RuBBian officials, from the
highest to tlie lowest, is a matter of
universal testimony by thoso who have
traveled or resided in the. country. It
oxtends to overy department and phase
of administrative and judicial service.
The government being: almost bankrupt, officials are paid salaries upon
which an honest man would starve,
and consequently flagrant, wholesale,
and open corruption, wliich might almost bring a blush to the cheeks of a
Topper or a Mackintosh, is daily practised. Justice, official positions, contracts and government favours are
bought and sold without concealment
and without shame. The government
represses with the utmost severity anything like criticism on official measures,
and no matter how hideous the abuses
perpetrated in the name of the law,
remonstrance and protest only servo to
provoke vindictive and merciless punishment. It iB not surprising tliat,
under such a system, men of intelligence and education, who know something of western civilization and have
studied the principles of constitutional
government, are anxious for reform
and eager to place their great but
largely undeveloped country abreast of
tho enlightenment of the age. When
all legitimate, efforts to this end are
treated as acts of rebellion, when appeals to the reason, tho patriotism and
the humanity of tlieir rulers nro regarded as treasonable, and punished
by imprisonment and exile, it is not
remarkable that the added incentive of
revenge for personal ill-treatment
prompts a resort to secret conspiracy
and a revival of the methods of the
rehmgericld ns the only means of accomplishing a change tor tho better.
In tlie interests of civilization it is to
bo hoped that the course of Alexander
III on his formal accession to the
throne will be to set himself in earnest
to tho problem of reform. It is possible that the obstacle of a bureaucracy wedded to the old corrupt and
despotic methods might be found too
formidable for the efforts of any one
man, even the nominal ruler. But
there iB evidently no promise of permanent safety in the present situation
—as even if immediate dangers are
surmounted, the same evils from whioh
they wore bogotten, if permitted to
flourish unchecked, will surely result
iu iv new crop of conspiracies nnd
troubles. Tho circumstances under
which he accedes to tho crown, it is
true, are not auspicious, nnd might
woll dampen tho ardour of even a pronounced and enthusiastic reformer,
which Alexander has nover protended
to be. As a soldier by training, he is
moro likely to look to that old expedient of a foreign war to divert the
minds of his people from domestic
matters. It is not improbable that he
may contemplate aggressive movements in tho direction of Armenia, forgetful of tho circumstance that his
father's attempt to satisfy the aspirations of tho Russian people by enlarging thoir territories in place of extending thoir liberties did not save him
from falling a victim to dynamite.
Tho work of establishing free institutions in Russia must of necessity be a
gradual one. It will take generations
for tho development of the public
spirit, the sense of political morality,
and tlie idea of liberty as distinct from
license, which are essential to their
maintenance. But in Russia, as elsewhere, progress is sure if Blow, and the
cause of freedom will go forward either
with the co-operation and guidance of
those in authority, or iu spite of thom,
and over thom if they persist in their
offorts to obstruct it.—Globe,

Sunday Desecration.
(From tho OH urchin an's Gazette.)
Every provincial newspaper we take
up now-a-days has ono all engrossing
theme Tie:-—the glories of British Columbia, its marvellous fertility, its inexhaustible agricultural as woll as mineral resources; the extraordinary salubrity of ita climate, and so on; and the
journal of Canada and even England
have many of them lately waxed eloquent on the same subject.
It ia an undoubted fact that, attracted by these representations as well as
by other inducements, nn increasing
number of settlers is daily seeking our
shores.
In view of these circumstances, then,
there in a responsibility now resting on
the Dominion Government, the gravity
of which it is impossible to exaggerate.
We maintain that iu this provinco,
at all events in the upper part thereof,
there is an established system of immorality, which daily advances and
increases; a system which is invading
the liberty of the peoplo, lowering
their tone and charactor and threatening therefore to ruin tho interests of
the province. We further maintain
that the government is responsible for
this system. *_
We do not allude to tho liquor traffic
and nll the deep and terrible scandals
therein contained. Public opinion
seems nt last to be waking up on this
subject, and we have good nope that
•very year that passes will see the
country less and less governed by
saloon-keepers and whiskey-distillers,
and more and more by those whose
real interests depend on its advancement, not its retrogression; on its
prosperity, not its brutalization. We
allude, to the legalized desecration of
Sunday, to the shameless robbery of
The Day of Rest from a people who
are not in a position at present to defend themselves from the injustice and
oppression.
The commencement of the matter
was, as suoh things usually are, most
innocent. It suited the general convenience that a mail steamer should
leave Victoria on such a day and at such
an hour, aa caused its arrival at Yale
on Sunday.
Yale was then a small and most unimportant settlement, and there might
have been some reasonable excuses
made then for sacrificing its interests
to those of larger places; but even
then Yale refused to have her San-day
rest destroyed, and for a coiaiiderable
period no steamer wu iHowTs-f is indulge a single pound rf feejjit till
Monday morning. Sow wftih rezard
to Yale all has changed; n&w that it
has become the Canadian Pacific headquarters, it is by far ihe busiest placo
on the mainland, and its population is
numbered in hundreds instead of tens.
To Yale, too, as the head of the Frasor
navigation, the stream of emigration
appears to be tending at present, Tho
newcomers are "moved on" till they
can move no further. The one mail
steamer which n few years since deposited a small bag of letters and a few
hundred-weights of freight, has grown
now into three, four, and sometimes
five boats which arrive at every conceivable hour on Sunday, laden with
heavy mails and hundreds of tous of
freight. Trains are running all day
long; Sunday ia in every respect the
busiest day of the week. All the stores,
with two honorable exceptions, are in
full awing of business, and the saloons
of course are in the greatest request of
all.
The effect of this system we boldly
auert to be the degradation and brutalization of every class in the community. The experience of the world
proves that such is ever the result of a
line of conduct in direct violation of
an authoritative Divine command.
But it ii Aot necessary to take this
higher ground in order to prove the
hardships or shortsightedness of the
practice.
The most convincing of all arguments, observation, teaches us:
1, That no corporeal or mental organization can stand the strain of
seven days continuous work;
2, That in consequence those who
attempt to do thu are frequently
driven to stimulants in which they
would not otherwise indulge, the end
of course being their graduation in the
fashionable vice of what is probably
the most drunken province iu the
world;
3, The circumstances which surround the habit of seven days uninterrupted work—take, for instance, the
simple fact of wearing work-day clothes
on Sunday—lowor the tone of tho
mind imperceptibly but surely, speedily, and effectually.
Last but not least the Sunday work
system places an effectual bar to all
religious influences. It debars everv
class from the worship of God, it
starves the soul, hardens the heart,
and destroys every germ of spiritual
life in the whole being. But, say some,
Yale is content with Sunday work,
does not wish it otherwise. Supposing
that this were true, it would none the
less be the duty of a wise government
to legislate for the interest of the people even though it were against their
inclination, but it if not so. Yale has
4m» her best to escape from the bur-
4m thtt hu bten laid on bar.   Aa
many of our renders know, a petition
signed by perhaps every responsible
individual then in the town, was somo
nine months since sent to the Post-
Master-General calling his attention to
tho hardships indicted on the community and suggesting a perfectly easy
alteration whioh would, if carried
out, have obviated overy difficulty.
This petition wns nover oven acknowledged till somo months nfter;
a letter of enquiry at length elicited n reply which, politely of courso,
shelved tho wholo matter. Now
there is uo doubt but that any
alteration in any existing arrangements
causes a certain amount and frequently
a considerable amount of inconvenience
for a time.to a few officials. Of course
in tho presont caso such n thing as this
is treason even to think of. It would
novor do to put out of the way half a
dozen of tho privileged citizens of tho
great metropolis Victoria, only to sorve
tho interests and preserve tho liberties
of thousands and to promote the
morality of half n province! But again
they say it does not matter about Yalo,
it is not a permanent settlement, in a
yenr or at most two its present population will bo scattered ovor tho world;
it is of no consequence therefore its
being subjected to thia temporal inconvenience Sunday desecration at Yalo
means Sunday desecration on a considerable tract of the Fraser below it
and on the wholo line of wagon road
from the starting and arrival of freight
wngons and pack trains. Besides, and
more than this, thore is the forco of
example, which, in a ensu liko this,
has most extraordinary power. Ynlo
is n town of courso very much frequented by tho settlers in the upper
country nnd those take back to their
homos, their hamlets, their settlements, the immoral tone of the town
they havo visited. As an instance of
this we observed ourselves some months
since, n newly opened store, in one of
the most secluded spots in the country,
just taking the first steps toward Sunday trading, and quoting Yale ns an
authority.
It is a most painful thing to see tho
effect of this desecration system on
new comers and we have had every opportunity lately of observing it. A
family somos from England, for instance, or Canada, with the view of
improving its fortunes by work on the
railway to start with, and ultimately
settling in the country if possiblo.
Theso peoplo havo como from a stato
of decency, civilization, &o., at all
events the outward obsorvnnces of religion. Their first Sunday or two at
Yalo shocks and disgusts thom; "thoy
nevor can stay in a country liko this;
nothing at all events will over induce
them to work soven days," &c. A
week or two elapses,' they havo got
pretty well used to it, and soo nothing
at all outrageous or extraordinary, and
in a vory short timo moro of courso
they are working just liko any ono else
and going down lull just like tho rest.
This is the case with the generality.
We know a fow who havo hitherto persistently refused to follow the multitude to do ovil, nnd we know more,
who, disgusted with tho whole business, have loft tlio country for good;
and such must ever bo tho case. If by
justice, civilization, and order, a place
is made fit for good men and true,
they will come and stay there, if not,
the governing authorities only have
themselves to blamo when thoy find
themselves with a population of blackguards. We maintain that Sunday
trading and Sunday work of all kinds
is the thin edge of the wedge of certain
demoralization of character, that thore
is a sure prospect, unless some alteration be made, and thnt speedily, that
it will become the universal custom in
this provinco; ntid let not tho "favor
ed inhabitants of the Lower Fraser
nor even of the Island itself think for
a moment that by-and-bye it will not
also spread to them. In England bucIi
a state of things would not be allowod
to exist for n week. No government
would countenance it, if it did, popular outcry would drivo it from offico in
a fortnight. No, it is to a so-called
country of freedom that wo must look
for such abject slavery. Tho population of a province so new as tliis is
necessarily n shifting one, and as such,
disunited, careless, irresponsible. Surely it is for England and Canada to defend tho interests of what they both
vaunt to tho world is going to be so
important a colony. It is for these to
defend their emigrant children from
slavery and demoralization, to insist
that a responsible government should
so rule the country that it be true to
the laws of God and the time honored
institutions of the most Christian country in tlie universe.

Another Scheme ror De Lesseps
No sooner has tho once derided
Suez Canal proved its value as a paying enterprise than a rival project to
divert its trade is proposed by means
of a now canal starting from Alexandria. A more honorable, and, in the
end, a more profitable investment
would be found in a canal to connect
the eastern arm of the Red Sea with
the Dead Sea, passing through tho
Valley of Moses and thonco across tbe
plain of Esdracton to the Mediterranean at the Bay of Acre. This would
convert the Dead Sea into a living
lake, 150 miles long by twenty wide,
make Jerusalem a seaport and fulfil
the prophecy of Zachariah. It would
expel the Bedouin robbers from the
Valley of the Jordan and bring tho
ferJle fields of Oiload and Damascus
in contact with modern civilization.
By Hanking Mount Lebanon, it would
bring the city of Damascus within a
day's journey of the head of now navigation, and thus the construction of a
railroad to the Euphrates would bo
shortened and simplified.

he lay a fortnight without an operation

Blood Bitters have a steady sale, are
patronized by the host families here and
surrounding country, and all attest to
its virtues with unqualified satisfaction."
A Minihtkr's Evidence. — The all
prevalent malady of civilized life is Dyspepsia. Rev. W. E. Clifford, of Both-
well, was cured of dyspepsia and liver
complaint that rendered his life almost
a burden. Tlie cure was completed by
three bottles of Burdock Blood Bitters.
