iJotBltttigk^himbi-tn
Tkur.ilay Evening, Sept. I«. 188*.
Parties just arrived irom Alaska
pronounce the eviction of Ohinese
from Douglas island a most heartless
and brutal outrage. Its details were
savage and ruthless to the last degree. It is even intimated that the
poor victims were loaded on the
schooners with the expectation and
hope, that: thejc would never reach
their destination, alive,, and the
charge does not seem' unreasonable
when it is known that the boats
were not properly provisioned for
the I Voyage < and < that1 when they
reached Wrangel their passengers,
who for eight days had been 'kept on
short rations,:were in a half-starved
and famished condition. The story
of j the passage; of eight .days is most
pitiful. , There was not space for all
to lie .down, aiid in addition to the
pangs,.of hunger, thirst and exposure ' Were tlie sufferings of bruised
bodies, and limbs swollen in instances
to | double their natural size from
standing painfully on • the crowded
decks. A more- wretched body of
men than the crowd landed, at
Wrangel can not be imagined. No
usage short of burning at the stake
could have exceeded in cruelty that
inflicted upon these people by men
who bosst -thut' their, conduct was
"attended by 'no act of violence."
If our government does not proceed
at once against these outlaws, for
such they are, and avenge this gross
and cruel proceeding iit will merit
the contempt of the civilised world.
—Oregonian. I
It now begins to look as though
Australia would come forward as a
great silver producer. For the last
ten years She has worked some silver lodes :in a small way, and from
1876 to 1884 her exports of that
metal Have averaged fiom ttbout
430,000 to $100,000. Within the;
last two years American reduction
processes have been introduced, and
in 1885 the export jumped up to
$283,665. This was mostly the
product of a single mine in the New
England district of New South
Wales,.but other districts are now
being discovered . which promise,
large returns In the Barrier Range,
near the boundary between New
South Wales and South Australia,
an: extensive silver-bearing region
has been partly prospected and
worked with promising results. It
is believed that the deposits range
far into tha desert country of South
Australia, and no opinion can yet
be formed of their ultimate value.
There are thousands of square miles
of little known territory in that direction, much of which' resembles
the barren silver-bearing region of
Nevada, The government geologist,
and several other experts who have
made some Investigations, express
the opinion that the district -will
rival the argentiferous regions of
the' Great American Basin ill tlie.
extent and, richness of its lodes.
The country is at present difficult bf
ncMss,: Wood and water are scarce
ond mining and reduction expensive,
biit a railroad is projected to obviate
these difficulties.—& F. DtiUetiii.
Missionaries have the reputation
of being heroic folk and occasion*
ally circumstances are presented
which abundantly, sustain, ib In
the Sandwich group is one island—
Molokia—where the victims of leprosy—that frightful scourge of the
Sandwich islands — are gathered,1
There they are kept separate from
all civilized and healthy humanity.
There the lepers rot and die, and
there thoy are buried by their dying
companions who in turn are burled
by newer victims. It is the island
of living death—the ghastliest spot
on the whole globe. There foi- years
has Father Damen been a willing
prisoner, having been induced' by
his holy zeal to place himself among
that laznr horde to minister spiritual
necessities, to soothe the dying and
to pray for the dead. For a long
time, tbddgh out off froni the outward world, Father Damen continued in good health,'though alone/
among tho dead. But the stroke
has fallen nt last. In a letter written recently he say's: "It is impossible for me to go any more to Honolulu on account of the leprosy
breaking out on me. ; the microbe's
have finally settled in my left leg
and ear, and one eyebrow begins to
fall. I expect soon to have iny faco
disfigured. Haviiu- no doubt myself of the true character of the
disease, I feel calm, resigned, and
happier among my people Almighty
Ood knows1 what is best for my snnc-
tificntion, and With this conviction
I say daily a good fiat voluntas
tuo." Where is the heroism which
will  vie with thlat—ITimi-*<-*/iSnii.

case of Sproule. This man was
tried for murder, found guilty, and
sentenced to death. If lie had been
a poor man, undoubtedly he would
lono; ago havo paid the ponalty imposed by law; but he happened to
lmvo some money, and the lawyers
knew it, and at once a determined
ell'ort was made to escapo from tho
sentence. After exhausting all legnl resources of tho province the
case was earned to Ottawa, where it
wos so successfully handled by prisoner's counsel that Sproule seemed
on the very point of escape. Judge
Henry ordered that he be brought
to Ottawa and discharged. The or.
der wtts resisted, however, by tlie
provincial authorities, and on Monday, after another long and expensive hearing, the supreme court of
Canada decided that Judgo Henry
was mistaken, and his order was discharged. Sproule is now subject to
the order of tho first court, but may
(if he has money enough) appeal to
the privy council of Great Britain.
We are told that his money has been
exhausted, and unless his friends
come up he will hang. There seems
to be no doubt anywhere that he
had a fair trial aud is guilty: the
only questions the courts have been
considering were mere technicalities.
Dodging tbe Point.
Not long ago an article appeared
iu this paper intended to correct
some erroneous impressions that
might bo produced by misleading
statements that liave oppeared in
the Victoria Colonist with reference,
to Fraser River and the city of New
Westminster. It may be remembered that the Colonist made such
references to the closing of Fraser
River by ice as were intended to
leave the impression that ice formed
a serious obstacle to vessels reaching this city in Winter. We pointed out that this is not the wise—
that although there is float ice iu
the river usually for a week or two
each winter, it would presont no
barrier at all to steamers having
thc simplest kind of protection
against it. We drew attention also
to the fact that a city on a river has
very many substantial advantages
over other cities, and that, as a rule,
all great cities were on rivers or
very near them, a fact that must be
patent to any person who possesses
a geography. Tliere was nothing
said - that could be construed into
hostility towards Victoria, and nothing at all about rivalry. In its
issue of Tuesday the Colonist pretends to reply to that article; but
the so-called reply is not a reply at
.all. Carefully avoiding the points
at issue, our cotemporary indulges
iu half a column of ridicule in
which ho manages totally to misrepresent the Columbian's attitude.
Ridicule is sometimes an effective
weapon if employed by skillful
hands; but in the hunds of our Victoria cotemporary it affords a sure
means of detecting the narrow sectionalism which clings to all his
thoughts, and his inability to state
any facts or arguments that will
meet fairly the position taken hy
this journal. It would be neither
wise nor profitable to reply to our
cotemporary's article. We shall
only say that his reference to Port
land as an instance of a river city
badly hampered by obstructions to
navigation is unfortunate. Portland is about 80 miles up the river,
whereas New Westminster is only
15 miles from saltwater, Portland's river has a very dangerous
Inr at its mouth, and there is no
natural or artificial protection at
the entrance, which is exposed to
the full sweep of the wnve3 of tlie
Pacific Ocean. The obstructions at
the mouth of Fraser River are such
as could bo removed by tho expenditure of a very moderate sum of
monoy, and Vancouver Island is
placed directly opposite, admirably
fulfilling the purpose of a breakwater, for whioh nature seems to
have raised it up, But in spite of
all these serious drawbacks on the
Columbia River, Portland is the
largest city on the Pacific nortii of
Sau Francisco, and is a city of great
commercial importance. Its white
population now is about 20,000,
which is moro than double that of
Victoria, and its wharves are constantly lined with ships from all
parts of tho world. If Portland,
with disadvantages of which we
know nothing, hus been able to ac
cumulate such a population and such
commerce, the Colonist cannot successfully infer from its history that
New Westminstor can never become "a great commercial city." If
this city aimed to liecome as big and
ni rich and control as much business ob the city of Portland, it
would be animated hy no mean ambition; but its magnificent situation
and unrivalled natural advantages
prompt it to look oven higher than
this. If the Colonist does not rejoice in * pronpeot equally inspiring,
we are sorry the fates are inexorable.

Escaped fkojc Jail.—A Chinaman
named Ah Fun, who waa being held
on a charge of stabbing a fellow celes-
triel, escaped from the lookup between
10 o'clook last night and eight this
morning. He effected his escape by
first prying up a board in the floor of
hia cell,'and, passing under the building, gained access to the inner yard.
Front here,there wu little difficulty in
reaching the outer yard, and the street
was gained by scaling the main wall
with the assistance ef a loose board,
and then Ah Fun was "as free tn a
bird upon the wing." The police have
been searching for him to-day, but he
no doubt had shaken the dust of the
oity from his feet befon daylight this
morning. The usefulness of tbe old

COMMUNICATIONS.
The so-called Poisoning case.
Editor Columbian: Mr. Curtis' article on the above case in your weekly
issue., of Sept 4 seems purposely do-
signed to blind the eyes of the public
and shield the interested wrong-doers.
Mr.- C. professes tb be anxious that the
whole truth concerning the ''so-called
poisoning case" should bo known, and
writes along 'article purporting, to tell
11 Uie whole truth and nothing but the
truth,"and yet omitsavery eaacntial
part. He informs us that Mr. Reed gavo
a tablespoonful (about two teaspooufuls)
as ordered; Mrs. Reed had no sooner
taken It than she went into oonvulsious,
etc., doubtless the immediate result of
the sudden, violent, irritating shook to
the pneuinogaatric nerve, and through it
to the whole nervous system, especially
the brain. A tablespoonful of what? The
public have a right to know. In such a
melancholy and important case, why not
give the prescription ? But, in Its stead,
Mr. C. says, " The reader gets the truth
when he is told that tike dose was a
sharp, sour, bitter one." Ko, Mr. Curtis, the reader can not thus get the truth,
nor any part of the required truth, as
there are many mixtures with a sharp,
sour, bitter taste. The reader wants to
know the drug prescribed, its nature as a
therapeutic agent, its quality, its
quantity, and ite adaptation to remove
the disease for whioh it was given, before he can get at the first elements re-,
quired to form an intelligent judgment.
Mr. C. then goes on to say: "X want to
state right hero that the bottle contained
nothing poisonous; consequently, Mrs.
Reed could not have been poisoned."
And then he immediately informs us
that one of the principal elements in the
prescription was hydrobromic acid, in the
" full doss allowed," and that in a far too
concentrated form. Mr. C. has assured
us that the bottle contained nothing poi-
sonoue,and yet I affirm that hydrobromic
acid, one of the main ingredients it contained, is highly poisonous, seriously af-
footing the nervous system, specially
and painfully affecting the brain iu tbe
region of the temples, and ia very irritating to the lungs. Brando acid not only
extinguishes flame, but io excess will
extinguish life. Bromine derives its
name fiom its peculiar, penetrating,
suffocating and excessively offensive odor.
It specially affects the brain and the
lungs, two of the main citadels of animal
life, while chlorine specially affects the
throat, and iodine the nose, Mr. C.
further adds: "I have shown the prescription to several doctors and druggists, all of whom affirm that the mixture
contains no poison." The public would
like to know who the several doctors aud
druggists are. NAME THEM. How
they could affirm that the mixture "contains no poison," I am
perfectly at a loss to know.
They may just as well and just as truth*
fully assert tliat a "mixture" containing
strychnine contains no poison. Either
ignorance or alcohol, or both, must have
been at tho bottom of such a statement.
The faot is, that bromine, like many
other articles In the Materia Medica,
nover ought to be used as a medicine; for
it cannot be used by the vital powers; it
is inimical to healthy cell-formation, as a
thorn-prick in tho finger Is inimical to
sensitive pleasure. In conclusion, I
must say that the above case iB a very
painful one, indeed, and might have been
expected. It ought to lead to a very
thorough and Impartial examination by
competent and impartial investigators.
The recklessness of human life is shocking, where the very opposite ought to be
the case. I have long been so painfully
impressed with tho necessity of medical
reform in New Westminster that I now
propose, to write, a few articles on the
subjeot In the Interest of the people, and
publish them in the Columbian or some
othor publia journal. All those persons
who would like me to do so, can let me
know by postal card. Should I do so, I
shall.1 disregard from the beginning any
antagonist wbo neglects the principles of
a gentleman iu the discussion. Yours
respectfully, Wm. Kent, M.D,
[Whatever opinion Dr. Kent may hold
respecting the professional standing of
tlie physiciaus of this oity, wo must decline tho articles on this snbject he proposes to publish.—Ed,] '
Gilbert Laird, St. Margaret's Hope,
Orkney, Scotland, writes: "I am re
quested by several friends to order anothor parcel of Dr. Thomas' Eolectric
Oil, '1 he last lot I got from vou having
been tested in several cases of rheumatism, has given relief when doctor's medicines have failed to have any effect. The
excellent qualities of this medicine should
be made known, that the millions of sufferers throughout the world may benefit
by its providential discovery,"

Wnrra Bbonkx Monuments.—-White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich,, Des
Moines, Iowa, and St, Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made hy
these companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it iB practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and mtpcrior to copper or antique bronze,
which throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand licing blown against tho
work under a high pressure of steam,
whioh cuts the surface, but doea not ad-
hero to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements; It cannot be dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate It, although the film is bo thin as tn be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can takejilace.—Bonton Journal of Commerce, Chas. J. Robson, New Westminster, is agent for the White Bronze

The annual report.of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums whieh
tho shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to tbe resolute
manner in which the Company hss de*
ciined to embark upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per eent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay the'death
claims--which in a company of the age of
thc Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The nss ts aud liabilities are
set forth in minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, thoro is a surplus of $282,109
over liabilities and capital combined.
Tlie increase in the assets in the last year
was §260,390. So much for what can be
dono by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the true policy of
the Company, viz:—-"To keep iti balance
Blieet right and avoid unnecessary, uu*
wise, or extravagant expenditure for the
eake merely of increasing new business."

Sai'uamesto, Sopt. 15.— Michael
Davitt arrived here from the eaat this
morning, The Bee this afternoon publishes an interview with him on the
subject of the pamphlet issued by the
English loyal and patriotic union on
the status of the Irish tenant farmer.
Davitt Bays: "Tho argumeuti advanced in the pamphlet are utterly
misleading, and tend to create a misconception in the minds of the American public as to the exact present
state of affairs in Ireland, He draws
marked attention to the great doprcci
ation that has taken place in the last
few years in prices of all Irish agricultural .products, and denies that
Irish farmers enjoy greater advantages
of tenure than others do. Ho sayB
facts and figures which Parnell will
present when he introduces his bill
into the house of commons on Friday
next will completely refute misrepresentations made ih the ' pamphlet and
establish the truth of his charges
against tho entire Irish landlord system. Mr. Davitt left here this afternoon for Monterey, where he will remain a few weeks, after which he contemplates delivering a aeries of addresses in the principal cities of California.

Dublin, Sept. 15.—Tho Albert

whom were drowned,
Liverpool, Sept. 15.*—Justin McCarthy delivered a farewell lecture- tonight on the eve of his departure for
America. There-was a large attendance. McCarthy had for his subject
"The Irish cause of to-day." He said
tliat tlio causo of Ireland had of late
made remarkable strides. Parnell had
opened up an entirely now chapter in
the history of the Irish struggle for
legislative independence (cheers), and
success was within sight. It wns hardly a question of years but rather a
question of months. The most eloquent of English orators, the most
gifted of English statesmen, Gladstone,
was now tho leader of the home rule
movement, and behind hiin were the
great English democratic party. Only
some strange, unparulled, fatal mistake
by the Irish party could prevent success, and, please Heaven, they would
uot mako such mistake. Irishmen, ho
concluded, did not ask to dissolve partnership with Great Britain, they only
insisted ou tlieir right of governing
themselves. Irishmen wero tired and
sick of being enemies of England, especially as English friends hod so suddonly and nobly risen to do their duty
towards Ireland. (Applause). He
said he waa not going to America on a
political mission. He had heard however that the educated Americans did
not believe in home rule and he would
try and find them out. Ho thought
on his return he would bo able to givo
a list of them, He hoped to return in
time to tako part in the great struggle
which would begin next session of parliament nnd which would lead to tho
complete and consummate success of
the Irish cause. (Applause.) Thia was
thu cause of civilization, of enlightened
progress and humanity and under
God's providence it could not possibly
fail to meet with succoab. At the closo
of McCarthy's speech he was loudly
applauded.
London, Sept. 15.—Succi, tho Italian faster at Milan, will not divulge
the secret of his African herb liquid as
ho intends to tako out a patent for it
and expects to realize a few millions
profit from t its sale, He olaima the
liquid will become a staple, drink among
the poor and will be so cheap that a
large family may subsist for a week on
a franc's worth of liquor. Succi ia
visited by dukes, princes, senators,
deputies, and hosts of directors. His
atrongth is unimpaired.
Turin, Sept. 15.—A congress of
Americana opened hore to-day. Tho
prefect and mayor of Turin and a
