Sinco 1878, the yenr in which the
Scott Act became law, that measure
has been voted on 67 times, and has
sustained IC defeats. Tho total
number of votes cast in favor of the
Act at these contests was 150,842;
the total vote against the Act wns
103,209; the net majority for the
Aot ww 53,633. In several counties, however, repeal votes have
been taken; in a number of constituencies two contests were had before the Act could be carried, and
in one county tho measure was voted
on three times. Taking the Inst
vote polled the total number of ballots coat for the Act was 143,862,
the total vote against wns 94,312,
and the net majority for the Act
was 49,650. The Act has been
adopted in 60 constituencies, and
defeated in 14, the total vote at
these 74 contests being 238,174.—
Globe.
To the thinking man-—even to
the man who does not think—it is
evident that we are upon a momentous crisis. Nover in the history
of Puget Sound has there been a
time when it was more clearly the
duty of the calm to remain calm, of
the law-abiding to maintain their
respect for law, of the passionate to
hold their passions in restraint.
The air is full of rumors, and they
all mean that the people will soon
have to solve for themselves a most
important problem. For months the
times have beeu bad. The peculiar
industries of this region are all depressed, A market is found for
our coul and lumber only with the
greatest difficulty. Many mines
and mills have been shut down or
are running on short time. The
inevitable consequence follows. Our
towns are full of idle men—of men
who are willing aud anxious to
work at nny wages, however low.
All that they demand is a bare living
for themselves and families. This
thoy must have. Many of the largest employers of labor in this city
and in the adjacent coal regions
have within the past few days discharged their Ohinese employees
and substituted for them white laborers. This movement cannot be
too highly commended. It should
lie taken up by all employers in
Washington Territory. Wherever
a Chinaman is employed and a whito
man is able and willing to do tlio
work, discharge the Chinaman and
hire ttie man who calls America his
country. It is to lie regretted, sincerely to be regretted, that any one
must sutler, but if there must lie
•uttering, let it fall upon the alien
rather than upon the citizen. We
owe a duty to all men; we are
bound together by the ties of humanity; but our tirst duty is to our
countrymen, to thoso who aro entitled to claim our help in their extremity. The substitution of white
for Ohinese labor need cause no inconvenience. If white meu ask
wages slightly higher than those
demanded by the Chinese, the difference is made up to the employer
both by the superior work done and
by the increase of business in a pros-
porous community over that in one
where business is stagnant. Iu our
oity alone a hundred families might
be supported for each hundred Ohinamen employed at work to which
whito men are entitled by all the
laws of nature. It is the employers
who must solve the problem presented to us. The solution lies in
the general employment of white
men. Sueh a change would mean
support, not for the workingmen
alone, but for their wives and children as well. It would mean prosperity. Before such n determination as employers must now show
the Ohinamen will withdraw. There
need be no disturbance of auy kind,
but the man without work will leavo
and that man must be the Chinaman. Thc solution of this problem,
and its solution iu an orderly, peaceable and humane way, is the duty
of employers. It is not only a duty,
but it is a necessity, and those who
recognise the gravity of tho situation will not hesitate. Wo do uut
expect that violent measures will bo
taken against the Ohinese, for we
bolieve that employers generally
will enter into the present movement for the employment of whito
labor. And, more thnn this, we
have the firmest faith in the soberness, fairness and love of law which
have always characterized our people. It is safe to say that nowhere
on the earth is there a region
where tho conservative classes are
more united in their respect for order and moro strong in their love of
law than they are among the peoplo
of the Puget Sound country. Here
a heterogeneous population has been
brought together, but each class
seems to vie with tho others in upholding the laws. Tho forbearance
which has been shown by the people

of Ronton -within the past few
weeks, the sturdy respect for law
which they have shown in face of
the calamity which has befallen
them, the peaceable disposition
which has been displayed when
scores of thom wore compelled to
fuce idleness and pet'lmps starvation,
make up an example wliich should
be heeded by all people. Tliis is an
era of bloodless revolutions. The
American laborer demands work,
but he demands it calmly and with
dignity. Ho wishes to violate no
law, but he will have work. So
long as there are white men in enforced idleness Ohinamen should
not be employed. Let employers
do what is expeoted of them, nud
let thom do it at once.—Sedttle Post,
A Ghastly Spectacle,
San Fhanuisoo, Sept; 15.—A horrible discovery was mode in Chinatown to-day. Information wai given
the city coroner that a frightful stench
was being emitted from a cellar on
Paoifio street. Ho want and forced
his way in and found the floor covered
with human skulls and bones partly
covered with flesh in the last stago of
groen putrefaction. Among the do-
cayed mass worms were crawling, while
tho floor was wet and slimy with the
liquid exuding from the roinaina. In
an inner room the coroner found a
number of Chinese engaged in boiling
down the remains of the other bodies,
while Chinese were engaged in scraping the boiled bones and packing them
in botes for shipment to China. It
is estimated that tha cellar contained
over 300 dead bodies which hod been
taken secretly from the various cemeteries throughout tho state. As an
instance of Chinese ingenuity, it ii
stated that those in charge of tho
operations, fearing that the stench
from the boiling pots would be so great
as to attract Attention outside, procured two living skunks, so that the
odor of the latter might overcome the
formor. The coroner confiscated all
the remains. Tho discovery of the
horrible wholesale practices which the
Chinese committed under the very
nose cf thu city authoritias has created
deop and intense excitomont. Tho
knowledge that such a mass of putrefaction was lying exposed in the very
heart of tho city, while at the same
time tho drainage and sewers of the
city are known to be in an unwholesome ami filthy state, created a feeling
of fear fnr the health of the city,
After all the boxes containing tho
remains of the dead Chinamen had
beon removed to tho morgue the coroner was interviewed aa tho matter.
Ho stated that whon he arrived nt the
cellar whero the boxes were stored,
and the putrefied remains which had
still to bu boiled, he set to work with
a hatchet to break open the boxer.
There wero some OO hoy.es in ull.
Each contained a tin case in which
were carefully rolled up in oilcloth a
number of human bones. Smaller
bones nnd long strips of skin were
wrapped up iu separate parcels and
placed within the larger one. On the
outside of the box was a label in Chinese characters indicating the name
of the person while living, ao that the
remains could bo claimed by the relatives on their arrival in China. After
having opened several cases tho coroner concluded to stoze tho wliolo lot
and romovo them to the morgue.
Express wagmiB wero called and while
the oases were being placed ou the
wagons some of the boxes rolled ofl'
to the pavement, breaking and leaving
the bones exposed to view. The
crowd that had assembled, learning
the cause of tho oxcitement, jumped
on the bones iu their indignation and
trod them under foot. The polico
quickly interfered aud the loading continued without further interruption.
The remains weru removed to tho
morgue, where most of the boxes containing the remains weie, on examination, found to have como from cities
in the interior of the state.. The remains had been shipped from there to
San Francisco in common boxes.
Those that come from the interior are
boiled and prepared before shipment,
so that uo odor is perceptible en route,
Only those removed from San Franciaco cemeteries have flesh still on
them when brought to the preparation
cellar. It was the intention to have
shipped ull tliese on tho steamer City
of Pekin, which sails Saturday next.
It is rumored tliat the Chinese Six
Companies will bring aotion against
tho coroner for removing tho boxei
and remains.

The Effects or Dancing.
The chief of police of New York
oity says that three-fourths of the
abandoned ({iris in that city were
ruined by dancing. Young ladies allow gentlemen privileges in dancing
for which, if taken under any other
circumstances, these gentlemen would
bo reported ns improper persons. It
requires neither braina, good morals
nor religion to bo a good dancer. It
will not mix with religion any more
than oil will mix with water. As
tho love of the oue increases the
love of tho other decreases. How
many distinguished Christians are
eminent dancers? 'As certainly as tho
atmosphere around the thermometer
at zero will freeze things, as certainly
as the wind will drive the boat, ao certainly will dancing freeze the religious
sentimonta out of the soul.
It will drivo its devotee away from
the church; it is n wind that blows in
that direction. In ancient times the
sexes danced separately. Alcohol is
tho "spirit" of beverages. So sox is
the apirit of the danco; tako it away,
and let tho sexes dance separately,
and dancing would go out of fashion
very mnn. Parlor dancing is dangerous. Tippling loads to drunkenness,
and parlor dancing leads tn ungodly
balls. Tippling and parlor dancing
sow to tho wind, aud both reap the
whirlwind.
Put dancing to tho crucible; apply
the acids, weigh it, and the Verdict of
reason, morality nnd religion is,
"Weighed In the balance and found
wanting."—Ex.

tttrfaesday Moraine, Sept. *3. IWU.
Mr. Gladstone's late speech, judging from the press comments, shows
very plainly that Parnell need except nothing but sturdy opposition
from the regular Liberal party.
This is wlmt might havo been expected. Unless the Irish party
concludes to accept a good deal less
than Parnell demands, the-demand
muat be resisted. It is believed
the moral effect of Gladstone's announcements will be great, and that
the elections will result in n house
that will firmly set its face against
the Irish party unless its demands
are greatly modified.
International Embarrassment.
The position at preseut occupied
by Mr. Keiley, U. S. minister to
Austria, seems to be singularly embarrassing. Keiley was appointed
not very long ago by President
Cleveland, and forthwith proceeded
to Vienna and took up his residence.
But it was discovered that his wife
is a Jewess, and as all persons of
Hebrew extraction seem to be peculiarly distasteful to tho Austriaus,
the representative was treated with
marked coldness by the court at
Vienna. The Washington govornment was given to understand that
Keily's appointment was not acceptable, but it replied that there was
no sufficient reasdn why it should
not be. The coldness of Keiley's
treatment was such as to make it
plain that he could not discharge
the duties of his position with acceptance either to his own government or the government of Austria.
He, therefore, returned to the
United States, leaving an agent at
the court of Vienna to transact
whatever official business might be
necessary. It seems that the United States government has made up
its mind that it will not cancel
Keiley's appointment, «s the objection raised by Austria is regarded
as frivolous. He is permitted,
therefore, to reside in the United
States, holding his commission and
drawing his salary, while the official
duties of Austrian minister are discharged by a deputy; Tlie uHu-ttioh
is, perhaps, without n precedent,
but it is probably quite as embarrassing to the Austrian bigots as it
is to the people of the United
States.
Worse than Fatly.
One of tliose distressing exhibitions of female folly which once in
u while present themselves to the disgust of all properly-balanced minds
has just taken place at St. Louis. In
the prison at that city is a man
named Maxwell, accused of committing a most horrible murder
about six months ago. All the details of the murder, so far as known,
are of the most revolting kind, and
the object was to secure the proceeds of an insurance policy on the
victim's life. This man Maxwell
has been in prison only a few weeks,
and lately he wns visited by about
200 women who carried to his cell
bouquets of flowers, delicate morsels of food, books, and all sorts of
things expressive of their sympathy
and admiration. They also, or at
loast some of them, gave this supposed murderer their hands, and
assured him of the deep interest
they felt in him. The crime of
which Maxwell is accused produced
a profound sensation throughout
the United Stntes, and one can
imagine no motive for the exhibition
we have mentioned but the love of
notoriety. Persons whose ethics
nre drawn from sensational novels
are ready to pay homage to the
authors of sensation without sloping to enquire into the consequences
of their ueK Every woman who
took part in the Maxwell demonstration waB guilty of a gross breach
of propriety for which no excuse
can be offered, aud is guilty also of
lendintf her influence to a sentiment whicli, if allowed to prevail,
would quickly sap the foundation
of all moral power,
The Duty of the Hour.
Particular attention is called to
an article on the first page of this
paper, taken from the Seattle Post-
hxteUigttneer. The condition of
affairs on the sound is rapidly becoming the condition of affairs in
thia province. Hundreds of Chinamen are being let loose from the
almost finished railway works, und
aro adding themselves to the throng
of idle laborers. White men from
the railway and from other countries are asking for employment
where employment oan not lie had.
The labor market is flooded with
* laborers of all kinds, and where it
is impossible to give every one em
ployment, a careful and judicious
selection should lie made. And in
making this selection it is not
enough to enquire who will work
for the least money. As a rule
Chinameii will work for smaller
wages than white men. But we
must consider whether it is good
policy to fill our industries with
these undesirable people and drive
white labor out of the country.
There is scarcely an industry that
does not depend to a large extent
upon local consumption for its
profits. If the local consumption
comes down to a flock of dirty
Chinamen, whose wants are supplied almost wholly through their
own countrymen, and who send
their earnings away to a foreign
land, these industries will go to the
wall. It is the interest as well as
the duty of every citizen to encourage white labor and discourage the
employment of Chinamen in auy
position wliich a white man can bo
got to fill. In these trying times
employers should be willing to sacrifice a little present profit for the
sake of future good.
That Batten.
It is not worth while to pursue
tlie battery controversy much further, for the Colonist evidently will
not admit the force of either argument or facts. For its benefit we
must repeat again that Thk Columbian never proposed to divert the
battery from the place where the
proper military authorities decided
to locate it. What we contend is
that the military officers ought to
be left uninfluenced by local interests in their consideration of this
question, and it was because tlie
Victoria Board interfered with the
progress of events that we entered
a public protest. The Colonist does
not seem able to brook tbe idea
that The Columbian is going to
"watch" this matter. "The threat
to watch the proceedings," it says,
"is both saucy and impertinent."
Now, if the proceedings in which
the Colonist and the Victoria Board
of Trade are engaged cannot stand
watching, they are just the kind of
proceedings of which we shall make
it a point to inform ourselves.
There is no reason in the world why
they need resent the fullest enquiry
unless, indeed, they have discovered
in themselves a lack of frankness
and patriotism. Wo shall watch
them undoubtedly, nml shall not
hesitate to offer a vigorous protest
against any movement which has
for its object the advancement of
purely local interests at the expense
of tho general interests of the country. In the Colonial's latest utterance on the buttery question it endeavors to make itself laugh over
thc idea of protecting something
which, it intimates, is not worth
protecting. If our "intensely sectional" cotemporary can see nothing
worth protecting at Burrard Inlet,
the fact proves how completely one's
eyes may be blinded to the public
interest by permitting the vision to
be constantly interrupted by purely
local boundaries. On the completion of the great transcontinental
railway its western terminus will be
fixed at Burrard Inlet, and from a
military point of view that will be
the most important poiut in Britisli
Columbia. The defence of the
mouth of the inlet implies a defence
of tlie whole inlet, and the C. P. K.
terminus. Our cotemporary insinuates that The Columbian hus lost
sight of tho fact that there is such
a placo as New Westminster. Has
our cotemporary forgotten that it
was for suggesting tho propriety of
military protection for New Westminster that The Columbian was
unjustly accused of being "intensely
sectional f Our proposal was so
far from being sectional, however,
th.it it embraced Victoria, Esquimalt, Nanaimo, New Westminster,
and Burrard Inlet! But Col.
Holmes hud recommended that the
battery should lie located at the entrance to Burmrd Inlet; and in refusing to ask that it be diverted
from that important point to this
city or anywhere olso Tan Columbian showed how much it was less
sectional and selfish than the Colonist and the Victoria Board of
Trade.

Provincial Pbnithhtiahy.-—Mr. J.
G. Moy lu n, inspector of penitentiaries,
left for Ottawa last Saturday, having
completed his inspection of the British
Columbia penitentiary at this city. To
n Colonist reporter he said that he wns
very much surprised ut the advance
mado in New Westminster since his
Inst visit seven yeurs ago, und the won
derful change ill tliu appearance of tho
penitentiary grounds. Wheu he saw
thein on bis previous visit he thought
that never could tho barren ground,
covered with stumps and boulders, be
mado pleasant, hut on liis visit he
found the grounds converted into a
luxurinntgarden, which transformation
ho considers is greatly to tho credit of
tho uniiiugtummt. Ho expressed him'
self thoroughly satisfied with the ad
ministration of tho affairs of the institution, which are conducted iu n
thoroughly systematic nnd economical
manner, the warden and his assistants
being nil tliat could bu desired iu their
various oflices. Whan asked us to tbo
probability of an increase being mado
iu the accommodation, Mr. Moylan
stated that lio thought it was urgently
ueeded. In spite of the addition of a
number of colls during tho present
yeur thuy wero now with tlie exception
of four occupied, aud tho prospect waa
that tliu coming assises would moro
thut furnish occupants for these, A
couple of yeurs nyo the department of
justice hnd advertised for tenders for
thu cniuttruotioti of an additional wing,
but Ihe tenders received wero nf such
u high-priced nature that the department, in the iulorest of economy, deferred the building of tho addition.
This could not now ho put off any
longer, and thc probability is thnt tenders will bo again asked for. The old
government house on tho grounds is
rapidly falling into decay, windows
and doors being displaced and the
building generally dilapidated. This
building- with n small expenditure of
moifey, could ha converted.into a substantial residence for tho warden of
tho penitentiary, who now lives without the grounds,

A Chinese Robber.
SHOT IN THE BACK ANO COMMITTED TO GAOL.
Last Thursday night one of the Chinese paymasters arrived at Port Hammond from Yale to pay off the Chinese
gangs at that place. While counting
his money in a Chinese store a lot of
Celestials rushed in, and one of them
struck at the paymaster with a knife.
The paymaster jerked his arm away
from tho counter to avoid the blow;
the knife struck the counter, and the
man who had it grabbed the paymaster's money (upwards of $400) and ran,
followed by the crowd. The paymaster took out a warrant, but as there
wns uo person at Purt Hammond who
cured to act as constable, he had a
Bpecial constable named Ball Bent
down from Yale. On his arrival, on
Friday, the special did not think it
safe tu make an arrest. Mr. Moresby,
of this city, happened to be at Port
Hammond on Friday evening, and
consented to make the arrest. He
was advised that the Chinamen were
desperate and would offer resistance.
Ho had a man named McNeil sworn iu
special, and with him and Ball bo proceeded to the Chinese camp. Thoro
were from 40 to 00 Chinamen within
gambling. The robber in the boss
gambler, and beside him was another
Chinaman wbo was by mistake pointed out as the robber. This man Mr.
Moresby arrested and took to the
Bteamer where it waa discovered that
he wasn't the man they wanted. He
was let off, and the three constables
went back to the Chinese camp for the
rubber. The two specials were stationed
outside tho cnmp.and Mr.Moresby went
in for bis man. He had no sooner
entered the tent than be was confronted with a lot of Chinamen who came
up to him in a most threatening attitude, and as he - bad beeu informed
that numbers of them were armed with
knives, be backed up and fired off his
revolver to frighten them away. The
Chinamen retreated, and the robber
took advantage of tlie disorder to
escape through under the tent, Mr.
Ball heard the pistol report and saw
the man escaping, and be fired, and
the mail fell. Mr. Ball says ho didn't
intend to hit him,-hut it seems the
bullet entered hia back. Mr. Moresby
came out and found the man lying on
the ground. He told him to get up,
but thero was no response. He theu
examined him, but could find no sign
of u wound. They took the Chinaman
up and carried him to tbe steamer
where he waB examined again and no
wound noticed. But the man gave uo
sign, and as it was believed he was
shamming he was rather roughly
handled. Finally the wound was discovered, and Dr. Tunstall, who wub
present, thought it might be fatal. On
arrival at this city he was examined by
Dr. Bentley, who gave it as his opinion
that he would recover. Yesterday
morning he was well enough to appear
in court, and after hearing the evidence hu was committed for trial. The
bullet hus not yet been extracted, but
unleaa infiammmatiou sets in there
doea not seem to be much danger of
fatal results.

SOME INTERESTING STATEMENTS ABOUT COMING EVENT5.
The Time* of Saturday publishes a
statement respecting 0. P. R. matters,
from whioh wo take the following: The
gap between the Onderdonk gang and
those in charge of Mr. Ross will be
closed iu threo weeks' time at the furthest. The rails wilt then be laid and
the laat spike driven between the 14th
and 17th of October, Whilo tho occasion witl be a memorable one, aa making a new epoch not only in tho history of British Columbia but also in
that uf Canada, there will be no public celebration. It ia understood that
mnny have expressed a wish to bu permitted to witness the important event,
but the company haa wisely decided
not to run excursions, or celebrate the
event in any public manner. Although
tho line will be completed as above
stated it is not intended to open tbe
line west of the Selkirks for trallic till
next May. This step is rendeicd necessary ui consequence of the amount
of work still to be douo iu tho way of
ballasting, erection of water tanks, station buildings and shops—works in
themselves not very costly, yet requiring time. It has also been deemed
prudent to study the action of tlie
snow in the Selkirk* at loast une winter before commencing operations. Interruptions ti-Ruld be certain and it iB
well to know exactly what has to be
provided against. The telegraph service will be connected simultaneously
with the track, possibly by the first
week in October; but no business over
thu telegraph line will be accepted by
the company till next spring. It is
understood that the government bus
notified tho company that ttio Pacifio
contract, under the superintendence of
Mr. Onderdonk, has been completed.
The company's engineer, who came
here to report as to whether the lino
bod been constructed in accordance
with the plana and specifications, and
the general condition of the line, had
reached Montreal. If his report be
favorable the line will puss under the
control of the Canadian Pacific company within a short time, possibly
about the middle of October. Tho
company have decided on adopting
such a asalu of charges as will place
the people of this province on the
same footing as those exacted from the
pubtie in other sections of Canada,
and leavo no room for just cause of
complaint. It is the determination of
the eompany to build a branch line to
New Westminster, simultaneously
with the extension of thu main line to
Coul Harbor and English Buy. The
engineers have recoived instructions to
proceed with the location ul tlm lines
at once; to prepare pinna allowing tlie
nature and character of the work tn ho
dune, in order that construction may
hu begun at the earliest date possible.
One of the executivo oflicors, whose
word can be considered authoritive,
still asserts that tho whole of Binranl
Inlet from Port Moody to English Bay
will bo required for terminal purposus
before many yean. Others who aru
conversant with the rise and progress
of thu traffic of transcontinental rail-
ways alao endorse that belief. The
construction of docks, buildings nud
other facilities will be proceeded with
at the terminus so soon as a few simple
mutters ot detail can bu nrrnngud.
When these have been begun it wilt
be found that the Canadian Pacific
railway company, in ruspect of their
terminal facilities, will bo iu advance
of all requirements uf traffic, and thu
worka on thia const, in keeping with
their magnificent buildings iu other
sections of Canada aud the unrivalled
elegance of their rolling stock. By
tho duwn of the now year, atl assertions to the contrary, theae will be
wall advanced.
From the Sliullkameen.
Hope, B. C, Sept. 18.—From a
man just iu from Granite Creek, we
learn thnt .lames Nolan was murdered
on Wodnosd&y afternoon by a cowboy.
Four welt armed men aro after bim.
There is great excitement on the crook
over tho affair. Particulars uro not
exactly known. A new creek is struck,
called Bear Creek, 19 miles from Allison's, on the north fork. There i»
considerable rush to that locality.
[We learn that the person shot by
tho cowboy was Newlaud, formerly
connected with Barnard's express. He
wub shot in the head, but the bullet
glanced on his skull, and the wound is
not believed to be fatal. The cowboy
was arrested, examined, nud committed
for trial, and is expected in this city

From Maple Ridge,
'Correspondence of tin- Coin in blan. 1
On Thursday night of last week a
during robbery was committed at Port
Hammond. The C. P. R. Chinese
paymaster, whilo paying one of the
gangs, waB assailed by a Chinaman
with a butcher knife. The blow of
tlio knife was aimed at the paymaster's
hand and in order to evade tho strike
he drew his hand back, leaving a parcel containing $382.30 u prey to his
assailant. On tho following day the
Chinaman was arrested and lodged in
New Westminster gaol. There uro
between three and four hundred discharged Chinamen here at present,
some of whom are in destitute circumstances. What their fate will bo this
winter is a problem for our legislators.
They were brought to this country by
the railway contractors and now they

Thb Chinese Must Go.—A pressure
is being brought to bear ou nll sides
to displace Chinese with white labor,
and from the appearance of things, the
abolition of all Chinese labor in this
locality is near at band. The Black
Diamond Coal Company has givon
notice that all the Chinamen employed
at its minus will be superseded by
white men, nnd thc Seattle Lumber
and Commercial Company has discharged thc Chinamen employed in its
mill. Thero aro a great many unemployed whito mon looking for work,
and it is to the interest of employers
to give them employment, where suoh
a thing is possible. If a little good
judgment and common sense is used,
tho labor question can be adjusted
without further resort to violence,
murder and the destruction of valuable
property. —Seattle Post.

plain. For some time post, or since the
conviction of tbo Bortletts a year ago
for illegal liquor dealing, various subterfuges have been devised whereby the
dry and thirsty sons of Bacchus in Chilliwhack might drink of their favorite
beverages aud no one dare to molest or
to make afraid! In carrying out their
projects, it is believed tbey have violated
tho law, aud our worthy reeve and municipal council, in response to a largo and
respectably signed petition from thc inhabitants, have brought the offenders to
justice. The local magistrates' court
found thc defendants guilty and fined
them. It is said tliat the fine, costs,
kc., amounted to over $150. But as tha
defendants had obtained a restaurant
license for ttie sale of beer (though they
got this without going tothe magistrates'
licensing court for it) they used this
license tor selling intoxicating drinks to
all who asked for tlicm and paid the
price; but with this proviso (as tho vendor hnd a religious scruple in tbe matter)
that ho who bought the drinks must bite
a cracker or swallow a pickle, tliat is to
say an onion, a pepper-pud, a cucumber,
or something of that sortl And ns tbis
smart repast had heen partaken ot in
most of the cases brought before the
court, although not in all, the vendors
innocently (?)* supposed that they had
good grounds for appeal to the county
court, and so they snapped tlieir Augers
at the local J, I'.s aud accordingly appealed. The municipal council defended
their case last week at the sitting of the
county court at Chilliwhack, Judge Mc-
Creight presiding. Mr, Bolo defended
the suit, and Mr, McColl appeared for
the appellants. 1 cannot pretend to do
scribe the ludicrous position of tho Bart-
letts under the examination of Mr. Bole,
but suffice to say tlint ha produced evidence to provo most clearly tho illegal
snle of intoxicant*, and the mirth-pro.

brought down the house iu roars of laugh*
ter, which will serve tho worthy Chilliwhack people material for innocent merriment for many a long day to oome,
But tho lunch of cracker and pickle,
provided for those who bought the
drinks, led Mr. Utile to use tbe signifi-
euut expression ut the head of tins letter,

may become ol the Bartlett case which
id now in tlie hands of tho court for

C'lIILLlWHAOK LUXCH,
Chilliwhack, So t. 21, 1885.
Board of Trade permission to make use
of our names; that they failed to do so
is ho fault of ours. I Imd abundant
opportunity to verify my informants' estimate of the number of eggs laid down,
as I counted not one or two, but thirty
or forty different trays, nnd as there were
several sizes of spring salmon eggs I took
tbe mean as un average of the whole.
Windsor, whom you have made to say
21,000 to 22,000 when lie meant as many
hundreds, evidently counted the smallest
size, as thc largest, of wliich thero wus
quite as many as any other size, would
not, iu a perfectly full tray, go much
over 1,700 or 1,800. As to the suquios,
the number of these bore a very small
proportion to the whole, and the outturn of young fry from tlicm was even
smaller proportionately thau from the
spring salmon. I nssisted to unpack
fulljr two-thirds of tbe eggs as they were
received at the hatchery, and I assert
without fear of truthful contradiction
that more than half the trays that passed
under my observation were not, on an
average, over two-thirds full. I drew
Mr. Mowat's attention to this as it
sccmedjjto me folly to lay down so many
partly filled trays wliich were counted
as they were packed away in the boxes
at the spawning grounds, and not us they
Iny in the hatchery troughs. Afterwards the partly filled trays were emptied into each other, but this was uot
allowed to affect tho count. I nlso vol*
untecicil to pick out the dead ova from
the living ones for several days, so that
I have a pretty good idea of the proportion of dead ova removed, apart from the
count—estimated at 2,000 per tray—
given to mo. While it is truo that many
of the suquias, cohoos and qualluhs turn
whito after a lengthened stay in fresh
water, the ova from all theso hsh invariably partakes of thc. color of the flesh of
the parent Jish when al its prime, and if
Mr. Mowat had used the eyes his Creator
gave him he might have seen tliat last
season, as lie hod ova from them all in
the hatching troughs. It is simply begging the question for Mr. Mowat to
assert that my theory is unsound: let
him prove It so! I have taken ova from
suquias and echoes when their flesh had
lost its color, but the eggs were as bright
as the reddest fish of the same species.
I have also seen thousands of spring
salmon disemboweled during the post u
or 7 years and noted the close relation
ill color of ova to flesh of parent lish;
therefore it will take more than Mr.
Mowat's ipse dixit to convince me that I
am in error. As to the Indians making
fun of him for taking ova from white
salmon, I have the evidence of two respectable white men, who havo had under
me charge of these very Indians for several years, and I prefer to believe their
statements to the denial of the Indians
themselves, who are like children in this
respect and would deny that they said
so for fear 'of getting themselves into
trouble, Une of informants is a well
educated, respectable man, in whom I
have every confidence, as 1 have always
found him truthful, conscientious and
strictly honest in ins statements and
dealings, and have no reason to believo
that he would willingly misstate facts.
Both Indians aud white fishermen have
a method of determining the color of the
spring salmon by lifting the gill cover,
bub it would have been a very easy matter to have mude a slight incision just
below the dorsal fin in tlie mature lish,
ns they were taken out for the purpose
of removing the ova. If a salmon is
white at all it will be found white near
the dorsal tin. Perhaps Mr. Mowat will
explain how it is that there are no white
salmon in the Columbia Kiver? If, as be
implies, all spring salmon turn white,
why do they not catch white salmon
there as well as here? 1 say it is because
thc white spring salmon is udistiuct
variety of salmon, and my English friends
assure me that in Scotland in certain
rivers they have a similar fish iigder. the
name of bull trout, and that they will be
found in one river, while in another a
few milos up or down tbe coast none are
ever taken. If Mr. Mowat will use his
faoulties of, observation lio .may note the
fact that a suquia or cohoe thut has
chnuged color iB poor and thin iu llesh,
which instead of being a bright white
color is rather a dirty yellow. No
white suquias are ever captured at the
beginning of the run, aud seldom if ever
in salt water. It is not until you approach the spawning beds tliat white,

from some unexplained cause, instead of
coming up in a steady stream as they
usually do, lasting from 4 to 0 weoks,
make another spurt in September often
equalling in numbers the cohoes, with
which tbey mingle ou their way to their
spawning beds. Perhaps one-tenth of
these aro white, but the outward appearance of the tish is enough to condemn
them; whereas a genuine white salmon
is bright, plump and firm, and often
larger nnd fatter than his red relative.
It will take a man of far greater inentat
ability thau Mr. Thos. Mowat to teach
the FraBer Itiver men anything about
salmon. O'Connor may be a good judge
of horso flesh but be is certainty not
qualified to give an unbiased opinion of
Mr. Mowat's management. His previous
experience (I have been told) consists in
having worked in Mr. Mowat's brother's
fish freezing establishment in Canada,
where I believo most of Mr. Mowat's
experience was also gained. I understand liis brother hm been employed iu a
hatchery and thnt in matters uf detail
Mr. Mowat always relies upon his superior knowledge. The large percentage
of dead ova wub due in a great measure
to the use of uufiltercd water. As I had
placed a few troughs for the purposo of
hatching salmon in the bed of the creek
some yeurs ago, I gavo Mr. Mowat a
hint that a filter would be required, but
he did not care to act upon it, until it
was tno late. 1 now see that lie is putting in u filter of a kind which may or
may uot work. As I have arranged to

Its t'aiuest Human and Dlv.'nr, aud
Why tt Selects the Vsera of Intoxl-
ratlag DrlnkH ftr Its Victims.
THE HUMAN BODY ADAPTED TO AND PERVADED BY ELECTHIOITY.
"The most carefully conducted experiments hare demonstrated tlmt the
* muaclea and nervos, including the
brain and apinal cord, are ondued during life with tho power to produce currents of electricity. Every minute
particle of the nerves and muscles acts
according to the same law as tlie whole
norve or muscle. Tho electrical currents which tho nerves and muscles
produce aro derived portions of much
more intense currents, circulating in
the interior of tlie nervoa and muscles
around their ultimate particles."—Dr.
Bois Eegmoml and Prof. Miller. The
quantity of freo electricity'in the human body on an average is greater iu
the evening than at tiny other part of
tho day.
There are many points of resemblance betweon the nervous forco or
power and electricity, whatever reasons
may be adduced by somu for disputing
their identity. For my present purpose I shall, like mnny otheri, assume
that the gulvauic current and nervous
forco are identical. Electricity in
some of its modified conditions is tlio
only direct aider of tho vital forces
that wo know of. It will often usaist
tlicm to throw oil' disease and restore
the healthy balanco of tho system
when nll other means havo failed. It
is not vitality, but n controlling forco
which imparts vigor to vitality when
thc latter is culled into action on organic mntter either to appropriate or
ft) expel.     "It seems to be the eon-
* necting link between matter and mind;
the medium through which the principle of life performs its functions and
the mind exhibits its attributes; thc
dynamic companion, but not the essence, of vitality. It is inexplicably
connected with nil the manifestations
of mind, yot distinct from it, nnd
exerts a direct and all-pervading influence over all the functions of life.
What air is to tlio lunga, fluid and
solid food to tho stomach, so is electricity to the brain, the spine, and its
system of nerves." But you sny,
What has this to do with cholora? I
answer, if my vicwB be correct, much
every way.
ACCURATELY BALANCED ANTAGONISM
NECESSARY.
Organic lifo manifests itself in n
ceaseless antagonism between the
forces of decay and those of the vital
or living principle Health is that
statu of the body in which these two
opposing forces are most properly and
evenly adjusted in equipoise. To
maintain this even healthy balance,
thero must be an abundant supply of
fresh pure air, sunlight, nutritious
food and healthy beverage, pure blood,
temperance in ull things, and proper
bodily and mental exercise. The importance of
Pl'RE AIR
will appear from the facts established
by the great chemist Sir Humphrey
Davey: That oxygen, in its normal
state, is alwaas combined with electricity; that the oxygen ubtained from
thc atmosphere which wc inspire owes
its elasticity to electribity; and that
air which hns lost this elasticity is unfit either to support animal life or produce combustion, and, consequently,
animal heat.    Not less important is a
HEALTHY STOMACH,
properly supplied with nourishing food
and drink. By tho pnouino-gastric, or
lung and ..stomach nerve, a bond of
nervous and muscular union is established directly between tho brain, the
heart, the lungs, aud tho stomach, und
what injuriously affects the Btomach
will certainly impair the brain and thc
other related organs. It is through
this nerve that the power—call it electricity, animal magnetism, nervous
force, or what you please—is supplied
to secrete the gastric juice and carry
on all thc functions of digestion.
Whatever the power may bo called,
electricity can substitute it and perform its office. Through nourishing
food and drink we receive into the
stomach a large amount of electricity
which becomes the immediate agent
in the production of vital power therein. Whatever injuriously affects the
stomach or disturbs its functions not
only affects the bruin, but vitiates
THE BLOOD.
During the process of respiration
the purple colored venous blood parts
with a portion of the carbonic acid
gathered up in its course through the
the body, and absorbs in place thereof
electrized oxygon from the air in the
little lung-colls. The blood thus ar-
terializod by the oxygen and vitalized
by the electricity it hns recoived,
hastens on to the capillary system to
distribute its increased proportion of
oxygen, electricity, and cell-food as it
passes through the hair-like tubes, and
again, at the same time, replaces them
with carbonic acid and water. Thus
it is constantly changing, during its
circuit, from arterial to venous blood.
During its passage the oxygen, under
the direction of the vital forces, and
partly by its chemical affinity, unites
with thc carbon and hydrogen in the
worn-out tissuo or * cell formations,
causing the death of the matter with
which it combines, and giving carbonic
acid gas an the product of its union
with the carbon of the dead matter,
and water aa Its union with hydrogen.
In order to continued good health, the
TEMPERATURE
of the body in temperate regions "must
not vary only a few lOths above or
below 08.4° Fahr.; and a rising nbove
W,5", or a depression below 07.IP
Fahr., are sure signs of some disease,
if such increase or depression be per
aistent." The temperature of the
body and all above 00' indicates the
amount of fever present in any dis*
ease, and the appearance of the eye in
disease is much more readily and
rapidly influenced than either the pulse
or the respiration. The temperature
ia beautifully provided for. In wliatover way carbon may combine with
oxygen the disengagement of heat
with electricity is thc result. Hence
the mutual chemical aotion between
the elements of the cell-matter, and
the nutriment and the electrized oxy*
gen conveyed to every part of the
organism, is tbe prinoipal source of
animal heat. Baron Liebeg estimates
the amount of oxygen consumed on
an average daily by an ndult at :i21
om.; while the quantity of pure carbon exhaled from the lungs of a
healthy adult in the form of carbonic
aoid gaa in 24 hours Ib given nt 8 to 0
oa.; and the total amount excreted
from the lungs and skin iu the snmo
time at 13 9-10 oa. The water exhaled as sensible nnd insonsible perspiration during 24 hours is givon at
21 poundB, and that expired from the
lungs at 1 pound.   Hence, pure water
is imperatively demanded by the body,
as a food element, as the proper food
solvent, as the carrier of oxygen and
electrioity, and as the cleanser of tho
organs of secretion—as the skin, the
lungs, the kidneys, and tho bowels.
It is important to remember that tho
body is
CONSTANTLY CHANGING.
It ib a fact that evory thought, overy
volition, every emotion, every Bousa-
tiou, every mental and physical act, is
accompanied by chemical changes in
tlio tissuo or cell-matter of every part
of the body; and that the animal electricity, or electric currents, generated
by these changes aro absolutely necessary to the well-being of the system
and tho healthy functions of mind.
Hence, certain conditions must be fulfilled in order to preserve thc bodily
organs in n healthy state, imperatively
demanded for the proper activity of
tho vital forco, nnd the enjoyable
manifestations of the mind.
Wo nre now prepared to look in my
next at tho causes of disease nnd tho
renson why cholera solects its victims
mainly from thoso who indulge in intoxicating drinks.
Wm. Kent, M. D.
gripped fty an Octopus.
If you can stnnd boforo tho glass
ciibo iu the Smithsonian Institute in*
closing a specimen of the octopus and
not feel your flesh crawl, you havo
moro norve than most men. As oue
looks over theso long, hairy arms, each
ono provided with suckers at evory
joint; as one notices the cruel beak
and looks into the wicked, staring eyes,
he instinctively shrinks away, as if
the dend monster still had power to
harm.
We were off tho Florida coast gathering sponges. In thoso days—nud the
practice is still pursued by tlio poorer
class of sponge*gatherers—wo got our
sponges by anchoring our eninll sloop
or schooner over tlie bed and then diving from hor rail to the bottom of the
sea, enrrytng a weight along to sink us
the faster. A good pair of lungs and
years of practice finally enabled me to
reacli bottom in thirty or thirty-five
foet of water and come up with move
or less of a haul.
On that warm coast the shark and
tho octopus and other horrible things
belonging to the lish or reptile species
aro present, and often lying iu wait.
The diver hns a horror of them at firat,
but the feeling soon wears away, and
some men become perfectly rockles.
During the first year I never wont
down without a sharp knife in my belt
to give any prowling shark a thrust,
but later on I would take a header oil"
the rail when a shark's dorsal fin was
cutting the water not a hundred yards
away.
During tho second season we lust
two men by sharks, but I took no precautions and had no narrow escapes.
In the beginning of the third season
we anchored over a splendid bed, in a
location well sheltered from storm and
swell, and we had renson to anticipate
a profitable catch.
There were four of us on that trip,
and the first man off the rail was au
old diver named Peterson. This wub
about 7 o'clock in the morning, and
although we had boen up for two hours
the bay had been clear of sharks. Wo
watched Peterson go over, but we
watched in vaiu for him to come up.
Twenty seconds passed—then thirty-
then forty, and the captain lenncd
over tlie rail nnd cried out:
"Boys, tlie old man haa got fast
down there and is a goner!"
Wo wnitcd ten seconds longer and
then felt suro that we should never see
tho old man alive again. We were in
28 foet of water, and the trawl showed
the bottom to bo clear of weeds and
made up of rpek and sand. It was
hard to guess what had happened.
He might have bumped his head
ugainst a rock, or hud his foot caught
in a crevice—ho might have burst a
blood-vessel or been taken with cramps.
None of us thought of an octopus in
connection with his sad fate. Wo had
seen a small one three days before,
and knew that the creatures lurked in
the still waters, but somehow wo speculated on all other theories but this.
As you may imagino, the Iosb of old
Peterson upset us, and it was a good
half-hour before any of us had rallied
his courage. It was my next turn
down, and as I finally got ready tn go
the captain handed me a long, keen,
sharp knife on wliich he had just put
an edge. I accepted it, more in hopes
it might bo used in enabling me to
send up tho dead body than thruugh
any bodily fear. If Peterson had beon
caught in a crevice, or was held fast
the knife would loosen him.
Well, over I went at last, and it wus
only a few seconds bofore I struck bottom close to n large rock. Sponges
were growing all around me, and as I
reached out for the nearest I felt something whip across my bare shoulders,
Alt the dress I had on wns a pair of
trunks, leaving lqgn, shoulders, arms
and most of thc body naked. That
"somothiug" stung and bumod and
blistered, but in two seconds the feeling hnd passed from shoulder to waist,
nnd in another instant it was in my
legs, lt wus nut until I tried to spring
nway I realized my situation. At the
first move I was jerked iu the most
violent manner toward thu rock, und
tho burning increased tenfold.
An octopus had gripped me! Ho
hud three of his terrible arms around
me, and wns drawing me to the rock.
How hia suckers burned and blistered!
How the hairy arms gripped nnd twisted!
I tell you I «vas a frightened man,
nnd for several seconds forgot thnt 1
had n knife iu my bolt. When I finally
reached for it thu octopus had drugged
me into the shadow of the rock, and
there I saw old Peterson's body. Two
of the creature's arms wore around it,
and I was to make a second victim.
My left arm was bound to my sido,
but the right was freo. As I drew tlie
knifo I caught Bight of the body of the
reptile. In fact, the arms wore drawing me within reach of his beak. I
did not slush ut the nnm, but struck
straight at the jelly-like body. . I had
then been down so long thnt my curs
wore roaring, and I realized that I had
only a fow seconds to spare. Luck
guided my blows nnd I slashed ut the
creature until pieces of the body floated around me und the arms let up
their grip. Then I started for the
surface, and 1 reaohed it about as near
a dead man ns could ho and have nny
lifo left. They pulled me ou hoard
and with uio came the three terrible
arms which hud been cut from the
body. Not a sucker could loosen its
grip and they had to cut them off with
knives, ono by one, close to my flesh.
Effect 7 Well, that was the last dive
I ever made, for I was in lied for
months. I ean show you thirty spots
on my body where the flesh looks like
a fire burn, and the remembrance of
the situation down there will start a
chill over me the hottest day. Tho
serpent and crocodile and shark are-
terrible enough, especially whon thoy
have you at a disadvantage, but don t
you get within reach of an octopus—
