Current Events and Opinions.
Receipts of the Suez canal during
the hist fiscal years were $1:1,(109,-
989; the expenses, $6,204,236, or a
fraction less than 18 per cent. Tho
net profits were $6,805,754, or
nearly eight per edit, on the entire
capital. Thau income is from a toll
business, which, in the nature of
things, is much larger upon the
Suojs than it could bo for many
years upon tho Panama canal. Still,
assuming that the Panama canal
might at once, upon completion, enjoy as 'urge a patronage as the Suez
canal now has Bfter many years,
and it is not diflicult tb see that the
return upon the Panama investment
would be ridiculously meiiger. The
moat moderate estimates place the
cost of the completed cannl at $600,-
000,000; earnings of $6,805,754 per
year would yield to the shareholders
about 1 per cent, on their investment. Surely not an encouraging
outlook.—Porland Oregonian,
We cannot believe that the scale
of charges which is snid to have
been adopted by tho Canadian Paoi-
fie Railway company is intended to
be permanent. Surely, on the arrival of Mr. Van Horne tho scale
will be revised' end n reasonable
rate adopted. Under the existing
arrangement freight is curried from
Winnipeg to the seaboard of .British
Columbia at a lower rato than it is
carried from Kamloops to the sea
board; nnd freight is curried as low
from Montreal to Kamloops us from
Victoria to Kamlonps. The eflcct
of so unfair a scale, if it should bo
persisted in, cannot be doubtful.
The interior of the province must
shortly be depopulated and nil hope
of maintaining!! commercial entrepot
anywhere on tlio const will lmvo to
be abandoned. Poople wero wont
to wiirco under Mr. Onderdonk's ox-
aotion. Whnt will they do now?
What is wanted is a uniform scale
—a scale that will be as fair for
one section of the Dominion as another—we believe that such is the
intention of tho company, aud that
in a few days the disabilities under
which the merchants and producers
now labor will be removed. At
any rate wo shall not lose fnith until
every means hnvo been exhausted,
— Vic. Colonist.

the political agitation which hns
prevailed—unci which, wo fear, is
still disastrously intorferiig with
business—we are disposed to wait
another quarter before desponding.
If the customs and excise duties
show any growth at all during tho
remaining quarters, the year's revenue may, by the end of 1886, give
us all reason for hope tliat the long-
looked for ro viva I in trade has com

Underground Telegraphs.
Tliu substance used for taiulating
underground wires in Englaid- whore
tho systom of imMermnaan "linea hns
boon longer on trial, than Aywliero
else, is gnttft.pewha. * A thiol? covering of this substance is laid ovor the
wire; this is thickly tarred, thon covered with linen tape and anothor cout*
ing of tar luid on. Thia protection is
needed tu keep tho gutta porcha from
the atmosphere, exposure to which
causes it ta crack itiid decay, thus destroying the insulation, In-Germany
the Bubtermnoan lines nre covered
similarly tu ocean cables, with layers
of gutta pei-elm, about whioh is wound
tarred hemp, lhe wholo encased in a
covering of iron. In England thero ure
over 10,000 miles of underground wire
in operation, but it is complained that
tho insulation obtained through their
method of covering wire is not perfect, tlmt ruts often get into tho pipes,
and gnaw the gutta porcha envelopes,
and that these are also injured by insects and a species of fungus. Several
improvements in insulation have been
tried in this country. The Brooks system, invented by David Brooks, of
Philadelphia, iB said to be the most
successful. In this the wires are first
wrapped in cotton, and then as many
as fifty or more are bound together in
a tight cover of netting, the whole
being then enclosed in a pipe. The
pipe is then filled witli liquid paraffins
uud is kept continually full underpressure, the oil serving not only ns n
water-tight protection but a perfect
insulator for the cable. All underground wires are laid in sections, generally of nbout 400 yards in length,
and ure then joined. Boxes with trap
cover* are placed at tho joints for
convenience in testing tho wires and
drawing them in or out. Connections
nro mado with underground wires just
as with wires above ground, thu only
difference being the added difficulty in
the former caso. The main objection
to Uio uso of subterranean lines is tho
difficulty and expense of hooping thom
in repair. When a hue does not wnrk
well it is very hard to ascertain whore
the trouble ts, and no easy task to
remedy it whon found.—Inter-Ocean.

The opening of tlio O.P.R. through
to tho Pacilic const 1ms attracted
attention in England to tho great
valuo of this Canadian contribution
to the consolidation of the empire.
Kngland lias now an alternative
route to India, China, and Australia, and can girdle the whole earth
without touching foreign soil. It is
a splendid contribution to imperial
unity, of whioh Canada has just
reason to be proud; and it raises
her at once into n most important
constituent of the empire. Com.
mercially, also, there can be no
doubt it will give nn immense impetus to this country. Not only may
the railway be of great service to
tho trade of tho mother country in
case of a blockade of the Suez canal
in time of wnr; but also in time of
pence, owing to its comparative
shortness, it should become the main
highway of trado between Asia and
the eastern coast of this continent;
and there are incalculable possibilities iu the opening up of the vast
habitable Northwest territories. The
railway is certainly (lie greatest industrial work ever undertaken by
a country of the sine of Canada, and
might be deemed a fit monument to
the great statesman who carried it
to completion, were it not that a
Utter will be hereafter found in the
nation covering half a continent his
gonius has founded.—The Week .
The revenuo returns for tho first
quarter of the financial year, which
woro published on Thursday, are
not vory encouraging, but, at any
rate, they do not countenance tho
assertion to frequently mndo that
trade is still declining. It is true
that tho decrease of .£477,OQO in
otistonis and £180,000 in the excise,
ns compared with tho corresponding
quarter of 188S, bears anything but
witness to a bettor stato of things.
Nor is thero much encouragement
to bo derived from the net increase
in tho total returns of £49,000,
■whieh is almost entirely duo to the
vigor with which the arrears of
income-tax have lately been collected. But it must be remembered
that the customs revenue for 180S
was unduly increased by Mr. Childers' spirit duty budget of last yoar,
and that as tho customs reooipts of
the past quarter exceed tliose in
the samo quarter of 1884, it is only
reasonable to suppose that wo have
merely returned to something like a
normal level. Tho inoreasu of £100,-
000 in tho post oflico revenue is
satisfactory, and the decrease of
£20,000 in the telegraph department and £55,000 in stamps urn not
suoh bud omens as they may at first
appear. A much larger decrease
was expected in tho first item from
the reduction in the mossiige tariff,
and the diminished yiold from
stamps may really be a good sign
rather than a bod one. fewer bills
of exohange aro circulating, mid
that helps to make up tho loss, but
trade, for all tlint, may bo on n
sounder basis. Altogether, considering tho distilrhance of trndo by I nl
Mrs. Olevelaml sets lior husband
some good examples wliun alio goes to
churoh. 'lenders uf this correspond-
once may riimoniber that Sir. Clovo-
Innd, us scon at clmroli, did not bow
his head when the prayer was offered;
did not join in the hymn er upon the
hymn-book; fidgeted through tho sermon, and was evidently glad when it
was ovor, and took no particular part
in the services, except to drop a crisp
new bill in tlio basket when it came
around. Mrs. Cleveland doos all tliose
things difl'orontly. Liko too many of
hor sex, she uppours lo liavo to attend
to the praying for the family. Whon
she goes tn church, ws soon us sho enters the pew and takes a seat, she
drops hor pretty head upon her iluintly.
gloved hand and devotes a moment to
silent prayer. Then sho settles horself for a quiet attention upon tho
sorviee, nodding pleasantly to Mrs,
Sunderland, tlio wifo nf tho pastor,
whose pew is just alongside that of tho
President. Sho knows, of course,
that she is the target for overy oye in
the church, and, though' she tries to
conceal her embarrassment, sho is not
able to do so entirely. When the pastor gives out the hymn, she ia glad to
turn hor attention lo tho hymn-book
nnd forget the uncomfortable feeling
which is tho natural result of boing
stared at, When tho congregation
rises she rises also, following the hymn
through from beginning to end, sometimes, though not often, joining in the
singing. Whon tho minister leads in
prayer her hoad is boivud, ond it drops
n littlo lower when ho prays for "the
ohiof magistrate of the nation," and
adds a petition for "thoso thst aro
dear to him." The linnounceineiita nf
the church mcotings which follow the
prayer aro listened tn with womanly
interest; nnd wheu the sermon begins,
after tho second hymn has been sung,
sho ia all attention. Silo does not
lldgot about and lean up tlio corner
and rest her head upon Iier hand, ns
Grover duos, but sits straight and
quiet, listening tn the sermriii frum
beginning to end. Of courso, she
fans herself constantly, for she would
not bo a woman if she did not. She
seems occasionally, to remember that
she is being stored ut constantly, and
bites her lips nervously, wiping them
with Her dainty handkerchief, whioh
she holds in tho sume hand which curries ti jewelled smelling bottle, a wedding gift frnm one of tho cabinet, offi-
oors.   Whon tho basket goes around,
sho drops her contribute odoslly
into if, and when llio closing hymn is
aiven out, finds not only llio "hymn,
but the doxoloey corresponding in
motro with it, and follows tiiiim closely
to the end. When tho services end,

More Mall Facilities.
AVe uaderstnnd tlmt arrangements
havo been mode for n daily mail
service ut all offices on tbe railway,
and for places south of tbe river
that can be readied from tbe railway. The mail will bo delivered
by the oust bound train every day
except Monday, when uo train goes
east. This service is certainly all
that could bo asked, and it will
surely satisfy those who have had
cause so long to complain of the
mail arrangements. We may say
generally that the mail facilities iu
this province have Jicen very materially increased since the opening
of tlie C. P. H. Prom tho oust wo
have a daily mail, and also from
the south by way of Victorin, tbe
mails reaching tliis city alternately
by direct steamer and by wuy of
Burrard Inlet. Lately the mail
steamers has been making very good
time, and there is no room for complaint. The additional facilities
granted along tbe railway line and
the river will, we ure sure, be greatly appreciated. For years The
Columbian has been striving to se
cure a better mail service for tbe
mainland, and it affords us very
great satisfaction now to be able to
make this announcement. The new
arrangement begins, we believe, on
the first of next month.
Roads Again.
Every summer for the last four
years we have called attention to
the folly of putting oil' road work
until the very best time for road
making has gone past. But it
would seem that there is very little
hope for improvement in this respect. Year aftor year tho sn
folly is repeated, and thc revenues
so sorely needed for the improvement of roads nre needlessly wasted.
We .have already stated, and re-
I peated the. statement, that road
work done in mis district "just before the commencement of the fall
rains is not worth fifty per cent, of
the amount expended upon it. Be
fore the newly made road hus a
■chalice to ^IftTe and-become firm it
is saturated with water,'and what
was meant for a road becomes a
mud puddle for the whole winter.
Roads that are made early in the
season become packed and hardened
during the dry weather, and are
much better able to resist the fall
and winter rains. Every practical
. road maker in this part of the country knows these facts, and yot every
year we have a repetition of the
same costly and foolish experiment.
It is row near the first of August,
and -scarcely any government road
work has been done in tlie district.
Before many weeks the fall rains
will be upon us, and then no road
work can be carried on without a
serious sacrifice of resources. If it
is the intention of the government
to do any more road work"-*)!! tbis
district we hope n commencement
will be made without delay. There
is need enough of thc work, und
every day that passes will add materially to the cost of it.
quontly referred with scorn to Canada as the asylum for embezzlers,
but it was America's fault quite as
much as ours tliat a criminal refugee
from tho United States was not extraditable in thi'country. Canada
lias no wish to shield thoso who by
tlieir crimes have been forced to (lee
from the vengeance of their own
laws. They nre not received here
with favor, and we sball bo only too
glad to surrender them when it becomes possible to do so.
Military Detynces-
Our contemporary of the Colonist
returns to the question of military
defences in lus issue of Sundny, and
says:
He (the Columbian) thinks the protection of the drydock, thc Imperial coaling
Station, the magazine, atorcs, ami the
valuablo publio ami private proporty at
Eaijnimalt ami Victoria of aeeoitcfary importance to the protection of New Wost*
milliter mul Coal Harbor. It iy a pity
for tho reputation of lien, Robson ns a
strategist that neither the imperial nur
Cniuulian military authorities concur with
him. * * * It ought ty he plain to
the iiiiist ordinary intellect tlmt if the
gates of a fortress are opened the iiios-
peots of iv successful resistance would be
diminished a hiindied-foh.1. Victoria and
Ksqiiimalt are the gates that require to
bo defended.
We have heard all about this gate
argument long ago, and have so
thoroughly exploded it that nothing
can be said except by way of repetition. The "gate" by which a ves
sol would reach the termini of the
0. P. it. on the Kraser lliyer and
Burrard Inlet is just about 20 miles
wide, stretching from Victoria to
New Dungeness, in Washington Territory. A battery located at either
Victoria or Esquimalt would be perfectly powerless to prevent nn armed
fleet going through this "gate," entering the river and the inlet, and
destroying both the western termini
of the railway. A force from this
fleet could then take possession of
the Nanaimo railway and make a
back-door descent upon Esquimalt
and Victoria and blow tho battery
into smithereens while its guns were
intently engaged in attempting the
impossible task of protecting a 20*
mile gate! The theory of our cotemporary with respect to gates is perfectly sound if there are gates, but a
piece of open water 20 miles wide
does not become a gate simply because he chooses to call it so. If
both sides of this entrance were in
possession of Great Britain or Canada, the position assumed by our
cotemporary would bo more feasible,
but ono side belongs to tbe United
States, and the other could not bo
covered at all by a battery at Esquimalt, and very imperfectly by a
Victoria battery. Our cotemporary
is not adhering to the truth when
he intimates that neither the im
perial nor Canadian authorities agree
with our suggestions on the military
defences of this province. Gen. Sir
F, Middleton and Lieut.-Col. Holmes
are respectively tho highest military
authorities in Canada and British
Columbia, and both of them have
recommended the fortifying of Burrard Inlet. Tho Colonist maintains
that if Esquimalt and Victoria were
fortified, everything necessary for
the defence of British Columbia
would be done. Il'roni this absurd
theory we must respectfully dissent,
and assert that the termini of tho
O. P. It. ought to be fortified ulso,
and Nanaimo, the sourco of the coal
supply.
New Extradition Laws-
it  is gratifying to know that
there is now evory prospect of a
more   complete extradition treaty
between the United States and this
country.   At present the offences
for which criminals may be extradited are murder, assault with intent   to   commit   murder,  piracy,
arson, robbery, forgery,   and   tho
utterance of forged paper.    In the
new treaty it h proposed to add
manslaughter, burgbirly, embezzlement or larceny involving SHO or
upwards, und malicious destruction
of   property  which endangers the
life of others, and  whicli in either
country  is mude a crime by law.
ft is supposed that thc offence last
named is intended to apply to those
persons who have beon resorting to
dynamite ns a moral agent in pushing forward so-called reforms thnt
seemed  to them desirable in their
own interest.     In treaties of this
sort it is of grent importance tbat
cure should be takon to prevent the
extradition of persons who havo become obnoxious on nccount of political agitation, at the samo time it
seems to us the provisions of the
treaty inight be extended still further without encroaching upon any
personal liberties worthy of being
respected.     It has long been a disgrace to botli Canada and the United States that criminals from one
'country tsOTl^jriawtheirtselves absolutely beyonii tho reach of justico
simply by stepping across the boundary line.     Americans have fro

Ottawa, July 15,—As aa outcome of
tho recent loss of tlie great Atlantic
liner, the Oregon, and the inconvenience

The inventor is Mr. Cluis. 13. Knight

Qu'Appeli-b, N.W.T., July 10.—Lost
Saturday as tho Prince Albeit
mail was proceeding north, about -■">
miles cant of Humbolt a mnn with a
double*barrelled gun suddenly appeared
behind tho stage and told tho driver to
stop, levelling tlm gill) tn enforce Iii i demand. He then tied the driver's hand's,
also those of Win. Betts, one of tho pnn*
scngc-rs, and commanded the other passenger, named Fiddler, to hold thc
horses. He proceeded then to open uov*
oral mail bags until he found a registered
packet which he took and decamped.
Hio police have the description of the
man and are in pursuit. It Is supposed
that ho waa supported hy n gang ot about
six and all from Montana. It is reportod
thnt the booty was worth jwOjtWO
but this is believed on the best authority
to he exaggerated, Mr, Swinston, of
Prince Albeit, was stopped tho previon.i
■unlit and overhauled by six men, but
they thd not securo much booty.
New Yoiik, July 21 .—The Star''* London special says: Thc Standard to-day
hus an alarmist article on thc Afghan
question, Russia Is warmly denounced
in connection with tho houndary commission and the recont events in Central
Aain. Russia Is plainly warned tlmt tho
polioy of Her Majesty's government will
he very different to thnt of Gladstone's
ministry with respect to the RusBian project of aggrandizement in the far eaat.
Tlie article bearing as it does indications
of having been inspired from hieii
sources, haa attracted much attention In
diplomatic circles. This early reminder
of thc threatening situation of foreign
politics and of the advent of Tories to
power has had a marked effect in modifying tlio views of tho Liberal Unionists
previously fnvoriong a Tory alliance.
London, July 23—The case of Crawj,
ford ugninst Crawford and Dilke was
given to the jury this afternoon. Tbey
returned a verdict finding Mrs. Crawford
guilty of adultery with Sir Charles Dilke
nnd granted Mr. Crawford a divorce.
Tho jury was absent twenty minutes.
Tlio only decision arrived at by the jury
i«, that Mr. Crawford is entitled to a
divorce from his wife on the ground of
adultery with Dilke, as decided nisi by
Justice Sir Charles Butt on February
I2tti last. The present caso being simply
a rehearing on the intervention of tho
Queen's proctor, for the purpose of ascertaining whether thc decree nisi should
hot bo sot aside on tho ground of collusion botween Mr. nnd Mrs. Crawford, or
on new evidence invalidating his wife's
confession; tho jury finding in favor of
Crawford the proceeding confirms the
previous decree, and makes it absolute at
the expiration of the six months attach*
ing to it. This six months will expire in
August, the decree tiki having heen issued on Feb. 12th. The Queen's proctor
has boon condemned to pay the coats of
the prosout proceedings.

i-uCutiy held a conference with Salisbury
at 11:80 this morning, who started for
Osborne to receive tho Queen's command
to form a government.
London, July 24.— The Pnll Mall Ga-
-.die says that the result of the Crawford
divorce case .strengthens the hypothesis
of Sir Charles Dilkc's innocence and
maintains that the case cannot be permitted to he closed yot, but that cither
Sir Charles must find "Fanny," or prosecute Mrs. Crawford for perjury or the
crown must prosecute Dilke for the
oHence.
London, July 25.—Premier de Frey-
cinct, replying to an inquiry of Deputy

home secretary, are said to be recommended fur peerages without seats in the

Lon dun, July 25.*—Lord Salisbury was
cordially received by tlio Queen at Osborne House. In response to his direct
personal appeal to Lord Hartington, and
other Whigs, to join the new,ministry,
it is claimed they refused. Lord Hartington attended tno conference held yesterday evening ut thc oilieo of the Liberal-Unionist Association, nt which he
announced his rejection of Lord Salisbury's overtures. The announcement

The Daii/-' Columbian.—For aome
time the proprietors of this journal
have contemplated issuing a daily
newspaper. The cost of such an enterprise is very great, and as our mail
arrangements hitherto s-reutly limited
the possible circulation of u daily, the
matter has been postponed from time
to time, .The mail servico in thia part
of the province has been greatly improved, and we propose at once to
begin the issue of The Daily Columbian, The first issue may be looked
for on Snturday, or early next week.
Thc daily issue will be delivered to
city subscribers at 25 cts. a week, or
mailed every day for §10 a year. The
paper will contain all the regular press
despatches, including both home and
foreign news. Wo hope this venture
will meet with general favor.

he crossed the river this morning states
that on arriving at Hope station he
(Swanson) started to walk on the railway track towards Yale. The body
waa taken to Yale hy order of the

This was nu achievement towards

. The editor of Nanaimo Ho! really
seems to have lust his head over the
late provincial elections. Not content
with the defeat of himsolf and his party
at the polls, he has continued to make
the wildest and most unjustifiable assertions cuncernim/ those who havo
been opposed to him. On Saturday
we Btated that for this ho had been
prosecuted for libel, and from the evidence given iu the preliminary enquiry
it seems thnt the slanderous reports
sent out by his paper were utterly
without foundation. Here is an extract frum Mr. Duusmuir's evidence nt
the enquiry:
Robert Dunsmuir sworn, deposed -
Thnt he is ouo of tho contractors to
construct the Nnnaimo nud Esquimalt
railway; Crocker, Stanford, Huntington, C. F. Crocker, Bryden, and his
sun Jas. Dunsmuir, nre his purlers;
he owned a quarter of a million dollars, more than half of tho railway;
the Dunsmuir mentioned in tho alleged
libel in the Westward Ho! of July Uth
was himself; he did not and never did
owe Crocker and Stanford §750,000, '
and never owed them a cent in his
life; he did not owe tho Bunk of British Columbia $230,000; our business
ia large, and tliere may be §2,000 or
3,000 owing ut the Sail Francisco
branch, or there may bo a large credit;
he only vot the statement from the S,
F. branch once a month; he did not
owe anything to the Bank uf British
Columbia in Victoria, but had credit
there; the libel complained of is entirely false.
CrosB-examined by R. O'Brian—The
capital atock uf the railway company is
$3,000,000; none of that stock is hypothecated nor is any of it hold as collateral security; none of the stock haa
been issued except to the partner.-*; it
ia more liko a partnership than a joint
stock company; the mines are my own
individual property, and nlso the property in San Francisco; not a single
dollar of this property is hypothecated;
have nu accounts except at the
branches in Victoria and Sau Franoisco; when au assessment was mnde
for the railway it was always paid in
920 gold pieces; all the plant and supplies were paid for with cash; have had
no advances made on my property;
had never issued bonds or mortgages
uu any property; never received bank
accomodation on collateral security,
fur, thank God, he had never any need
to; thu original arrangements in regard to his partners in the railway
stand to>day thesame as they did then,
and he had not made a different statement tu nny peraon.
On the second charge of libel, Mr.
R. Dunsmuir testified as follows:-—The
Wellington mines alluded tu in the
alleged libel aro my own and nre situated abuut six milesfrotri Nanaimo and
known as the Wellington collieries;
from the reports of mv managers thu
coal is not of au inferior quality; the
cual keeps up the samo standard jn the j
San Francisco market that it always
did; I do not anticipate that the mines
will hu worked out during my lifetime; as a mining expert I can stale,
that at a fair average output tho Wellington mines are good for fifty years;
I have uu reason to require auy money
from the government or any person to
savo too from ruin; I do not wish to
b-rro v nny money; I have no designs
upon the provincial treasury, and I
know I would not get any money if I
had,
The aooused was committed for trial.
The magistrate fixed the bail in each
case at $1000, the defendant in $500
and two sureties of $250 each. The
defendant at first said he would not
accept bail hut would remain iu jail.
Iu an hoar's timo the bail was furnished and the defendant was allowed his
freedom.
since the outlay for boats, nets,
machinery, steamboat service, superintendence and management is precisely the same for a bad year as for a
good one. If the caiinerymen had
not contracted their product, if they
weru in a condition to profit by the
improved market occasioned by the
short supply, then the hardships of
tlm year would nearly be compensated,
but under the circumstances, times are
hard witli them. The most notable
circumstance of the year, apart from
the decline in the rnn, has been the
development of the eastern market,
Formerly nearly the whole produce of
of thu Columbia river was marketed
iu England nnd tho colonies*, but this
yenr the home market, which has been
a small taker for several years, becomes
an almost equal buyer with England.
Since the season opened an average of
TEX C'AELOADS I'KH PAY,
each containing 325 cases, has gone
cast by  rail  and tliere is much yet to
go.   The met hud uf the eastern market has been  "frum hand to mouth,"
—that is, purchases have been small
to meet immediate demands.   There
are no stocks, hence the sudden and
rapid advance since it was found that
the supply was  shorter than usual.
The English market, made cautious by
false reports of short supply in former
years, has not yet responded to the
situation, but it is only a matter uf
time when it will do so.   It ia the
opinio!! uf men of goud judgment and
who have watched the salmon market
in its fluctuations for many years, that
prices will go considerably beyond the
$5 per case now ruling.   The necessity
of taking steps tu keep up the salmon
supply is now more than ever apparent,
Jt is a necessity that cries aloud.     Wo
cannot   go on much longer reaping
where we du nut suw.    In a few more
years, if nothing is done, the aunual
salmon runs will cease and an industry
which brings into the state each year
nearly three millions of dollars of foreign money will die out.   It Jb worth
while to sec how vast thia interest ia
and how widespread ita benefits are.
It employs 2,000 white men in various
capacities.   It employs 2,500 Chiuese.
It employs fifteen tugs and steamboats
and makes business for half a dozen
more employed regularly in the traffio
ot  the river.    It employs, besides,
hundreds of boat-makers, sail-makers
and net weavers.   It is the basis of
the prosperity of thc city of Astoria
and attracts much of our foreign commerce.    Indirectly its benefits reach
every business and nearly every person in the state of Oregon.   And is
such an industry aa this to be permitted to die uut fur the want of a few
thousand dollars a year spent in artificial   propagation 1 — Portland   Ore-

Dominion Lands.
Editor Columbian.— I see in your issue of the 21st July an editorial headed
"Railway Lands," the last five lines of
which I would like to say a few words in
explanation of the facts. The portion 1
refer to Is as follows: "Respecting the
dyked lands nothing can be done until
the question of ownership has been settled between the federal and provincial
governments." I must say that the five
lines referred to above arc a direct contradiction of facts. Whether put in with
the intention to mislead the public or
uot, or whether they are in by some mistake, I cannot tell. Please correct in
your next issue.   Yours, ke.,
S. Cawlkv.
[The dyked lands referred to are, of
course, the lands covered by thc Sumas
dyking act, and tbe statement contained
iu the article of the 21st is Quite correct.
In a report of the first interview, published on the l?th July, the following
sentence occurred: "In leference to this

starving Fishermen!
Ottawa, July, 25.—Hon. A. W.
Edell from St, Johns, N.F., is hero to
confer with the government ns to the
luuiiii-i of relieving the destitute in
Newfoundland and 011 the Labrador
const. Over fivo hundred families are
starving iu Northern ItfJrff'oundlHn^'
while in Labrador one thousand families are ina state of destitution. Already 120 poisons have died. The
thermometer nu the lst of June stood
al storo. From Cape Beauld, N.F.,
to Capo Mugford, on the Labrador
coast, there is a solid barrier of ice and
110 fishing has been possible. Large
numbers of starving fishermen from
■■Indian Harbor and Sandwich Buy have
just arrived tu implore food from the
government. No crops can be grown.
It is probable that one thousand people
will die within another month if help
is notafiordod them.
The Canadian government will send
steamers from Quebec to the coast of
Newfoundland and Labrador, to carry
such donations ns charitably disposed
persons may desire to send the starving
people there.   In Quebec alone orer a
thousand pounds'worth of provisions
have been subscribed so far, and it is
believed that Ontario will do as much
nr more.   The Newfoundland government is not in a position tu give immediate  aid, whioh necessitates demand.   The sufferings of those starving,   ill-dad   fishermen,   havo   beon
known for uver a month but the above
is the lirst step taken to relieve their
distress.   Deputation after deputation
has applied for aid in vain aud an Indian guide and government interpreter
who had just returned from Cape
Chadley,  the  extreme  northweatern
point of Labrador, reached by sledge,
gives a heartrending account of the
terrible destit ut imi and suffering which
the Ks.-tiiiu-mx and Indian farmers are
enduring till tiling the Labrador coast.
In Cape Chndley, 250 souls are distributed over nn area of several milos.
The entire fond supply gave out early
in   March;   the  seal catch waa very
small, and as thu season wore on the
seal failed to come near enough shore
to be onught,   Th? cold was intense
and many older peoplo died of exposure   and   hick   of   nourishment,
Ou   June   12!h,   when   tho   guide
left, the mercury stood at 18 degrees
hulo-v   ?.eru,   and    had   been   lower.
The ice for nevcrnl hundred miles «raa
-.ltd for ti depth of 10 to 100 feot and
bu w was piled mountains high.   At
least SO purauns have perished since
March, between   Cape   Chadley aud
Cape Mui-foid, ami only four survivois
were  found in rude shanties along the
const.     Thi.to accompanied tho guide
ti Cnpe Muufoid.     The bodies of 18
victims were found frozen stiff.   The
olathintl bad  been taken from them,
oviil-ully to help keep life 111 the mis-
orublu survivors, who in turn had died
while out fishing or sealing.   Seventeen  bodies were found here; 22 persons uru known to have perished at
Ofl pa Mut-ford where on June 12th
there were only 20 barrels of meat and
40 barrels uf com Hour; potatoes had
been gone since early in May; there
were lens than a hundred quintals of
full ntid no clothing at all in store; all
the  residents, numbering 300, were
worn and pinched from famine.   In
the outlying districts at least one half
the population had died.   There was
uo sign nf tho ice breaking up, and
the natives had nothing to change for
food nnd clothing. Seventy-five Esquimaux from Astoria, six miles from the
Cape, mado an attack on the stores at
Mugford,     The men  were rendered
desporato by their sufferings.

"In 1868, for the first time in my lifo,
I found myself spending tho summer
months in a dull, humdrum, littlo village in Virginia. It was not my
choice, it wus not my liking. 1 would
have much preferred boing nt Saratopa
or in the mountains, but tho fact was
that money had given ont, und I was
heavily in debt besides, I was simply
-. hiding from my creditors until the time
should como for ino to draw my yearly
allowance. My father wns wealthy,
and allowed me annually Sii.OOO. This
he considered ample for my current
expenses, und I dared not tell him that
I had gambled away and squandered
nearly twice this sum in the pnst eight
months.
- Repentance is a natural consequence
to misdoing, and tho good resolutions
I made almost persuaded mc that New
Yenr wns not so far ofl'nfter all,
It was tedious business this waiting,
and I hailed with joy thc arrival at my
boarding-house of a young lady. Sho
waa very handsome, and evidently a
lady of refinement, aud 1 hoped to
find hi her society some relief from
the dull tedium of evory-day sameness
which was almost unbearable.
I hastened to dinner earlier tlinu
usual and lounged about lliu parlor in
expectation of au introduction to the
new arrival, but was disappointed.
Sovoral days passed, thon a weok, with
atill no sight of tho fair one. I de-
termined that I would inquire of thu
landlady concerning her.   This 1 did.
She was a Miss Lnrnod—Miss Lucile
Lamed. Meals were sent to her romps
for herself and tho French maid, and
she seldom appeared outside.
My anticipated pleasures vanished.
I was again alone,and reckless -but I
had something to think about. It
seemed a mystery to nio that a healthy,
young, pretty lady should thus seclude
herself in a one-horse country town.
I determined to unravel this mystery.
To this end I resolved to get up a
flirtation with hor maid. My overtures in this direction wore received
with haughty disdain. Although my
vanity received a shock at the abrupt
manner in which the pretty piece
turned her back upon me, I had no
intention of abandoning my object. I
imagined that ny reception was due
more to her mistress' coaching than to
her own inclination.
I was still in a quaudry, a month
later, when the stage brought another
guest-rMr. A. C. Carlisle. He was a
man of about thirty. We became
quite friendly and passed many pleasant haurs together. I told him of my
condition and my reasons for remaining at such nn out-of-the-way placo,
but although he gave me very good
advice he never revealed anytiiing regarding himself until some time after
our acquaintance began.
He invited me to his room one evening for a smoke and chat. In handing
a box of cigars from the mantel he
brushed from it a cabinet photograph.
I stooped and picked it up. It had
fallen face upward, and I rocoi/iiined
the likeness at once,
It was the mysterious lady boarder.
I noticed that ho looked palo and
annoyed when I handed it to him, and
the keen look he gave me showed that
he had noticed iu my face the surprise
I felt at seeing the picture,
"Do you know the lady ?" he asked.
I answered that I did not.
Ho puffed vigorously at his cigar,
seemed several times tu bo on the
point of speaking; finally he said: "It
is a painful topic. I came here because
1 wished to be alono—to try and forget; to leavo tho past behind mc; to
blot from memory that which was
causing ino bo much pain and. sorrow—
yet I could not persuade myself to part
with thia picture—a likeness uf the
causo of all my sorrow- all my J rouble.
She is beautiful, is she not? I knew
you would say 'yes;' every one thinks
bo One would uot imagine so pure a
faco could cover u wicked heart. You
shall judge for yourself.
"It waa on our wedding eve that 1
was transformed from the happiest man
on earth to the most miserable.
"I entered the house weighted down
with flowers. I envied not the angels
in heaven—I was so hnppy. I went to
the private sitting-room and knocked.
No one answered, so I entered nnd
placed the flowers, together with tho
evening mail, on a table in the corner
of the room. Drawing a chair to the
table I glanced over the letters, the
larger part of which were congratulations from friends, etc.
"I do not know how it happened.
It must have got mixed with my letters on the table. Before I was aware
of what I was doing I had read it,
"It commenced, 'My darling Lu*
cilo,1 aud was sighed, 'John Randolph.'
It was overflowing with love. He
wrote that nows had reached him that
she was about to be married. Business had kept him from the city Bume
months, but during that timo he had
acquired considerable money by fortunate speculation, and was now able to
keep her in luxury. If she would
break off her engagement, he pleaded,
one little word would bring bim.
Should he come?
"On the table was a letter addressed
to John Randolph. It was in Lucile's
handwriting, and I could uot forbear
reading it. It was unsealed. You
will Bay it was ungentlemanly—but I
could not resist the temptation.
"It contained but one wurd, 'iVa.'
"I waited to ask no explanation; I
waa Bick—sick at heart, I went directly to my room at the hotel, and
did not leave it for several days. Then
I left for good. I hitve traveled 'constantly- trying in vain to forgot thnt I
' ever loved her. I am here now for
thnt purpose—but, do what I mny, I
cannot drive her from my memory.
Wo did not tnlk much after that.
I saw that hu would prefer to be alone,
and I left early, resolved to renew iny
efforts to get into-conversation with
the maid, and to learn* if possible,
why her mistress was masquerading
under hor maiden namo; why shu did
not assume hor proper name—Mrs.
Randolph.
I wns out early one morning, walking in the garden, when 1 came suddenly upon her. She wan startled at
first, and seemed inclined to hurry
away, but glancing np nt the window
nnd seeing shu was not watohed, held
her ground.
To my delight, I had little difflcully
in getting into conversation with her,
though she was guarded in her speech
until I succeeded iu oimvincitig hur
thnt 1 was actuated by something mem
than idle curiosity.
She aaid her mistress' name wan uut
Mri.-I-Jand'alph, but Miss Lamed.
"zat eea my husband's name," she
snid.   "1 nm madam Randolph."
She did not know why Miss Lamed
had not married Mr. Carlisle, but she
knew that they had beon engaged,
Her husband was nwny nn business,
and she preferred Id remain with Miss
Larned until hia return. I was still
talking to her whon I hoard Miss Lar-
ned'a voice, chliing, "Lucile I Lucile!'
and tho maid aroBe and wns about to
leave mo when I detained hor.
"Ia your nnmo Lucile 7" I asked.
"Oui, Monsieur; the same as Ma-
d'm'selle!"
lTp to this moment I had despaired
of making any headway; but tho moment I heard the name it Hashed upon
niy mind that hero might be a solution
to tho prublem. Lucile—Randolph—-
the names were the same.
"Onu more question," I pleaded,
"and I will trouble you un more.''
Did Miss Larned ever write any letters
for you to Mr. Randolph V
Sho laughed nud shriigs/ed her
shoulders in true French fashion.
"I don't know zol you call him one
letter. I not writo ver'good Bngloesh,
so Mnd'iu'sclle sho write for me, one
time, just one word—'oui—yes."
She broke into a merry laugh, and
ran upstairs.
Tt was plain enough to me now. I
knew that Carlisle would be overjoyed
at my discovery, for he did not even
know thnt Miss Larned was under the
same roof; but I had (-rave doubts as
to whether sho would ever forgive hiin
fur hia lack tif confidence in Iter.
# # •:,-• ■ # ■:;* *
Three mouths later found ine in New
York City, congratulating Carlisle and
his brido.
Why Tlie) married.
From Tltlhils.
We lately sent postal cards to tlie
married men of a small town in Western New York with the inquiry, "Why
did you marry?" We give ft few (if
tho responses:—
"That's what I havo been trying for
eleven years to Iind out. X."
"Married to get ovon with her
mothor, but nevor have. W,"
"Becauso I was too  lazy to work.
I. V."
"Because Sarah  told  me that lire
other  young   men   had   proposed to
her. C."
"The old man thought eight years'
court in' was almost long onough, IV
"I was lonesome and melancholy,
and wanted some one to make me
lively. She makes me verv lively.
C. D."
"I was tired of buying icecream and
candies, and going to theatres and
church, and wanted a rest. Havo
saved money. ,1. GV
Because I thought sho was one
among a thousand; now I sometimes
think she is a thousand among one.
R! lil"
I think it was because I was crosseyed; now I am afflicted with two
pairs of cross eyes daily.      Pktkr,"
"Because I did not liave the experience I have now. G."
"The governor was going to give mo
his foot, ao I took his daughter's
hand. H."
1 thought it would be cheaper (ban
a breach of promise suit.        A. C."
That's the same fool question thai
my friends and neighbors ask ino,
C. H."
"Because I had more money than I
knew what to do with,   Now I have
moro to do than T have money with.
B. D."
'Had  difliculty unlocking the door
at night, and wanted somebody to let
me in. Ron,"
I was embarrassed and gavo my
wife the benefit of my namo so that I
could tako the benefit of her name

"I married to get tho best wife in

"Becauso I asked her if she'd have

To Save tlie Drowning
This is the time when tho rivers and
ponds are filled with bathers aud tho
list of drownings, while not as largo
thia year ns in former seasons, is still
startling. In many cases the drowning person is taken from tho water,
and a knowledge of what should bo
dono under tho circumstances would
result iu the saving of lifo. These
directions ahould be followed:
First—Remove all obstructions to
breathing; cut looso the neck and
waist-band. Let tho person be turned
face downward, with tho head downhill, tho person having charge to stand
astride of the hips, with the face
towards the head of the patient, and
the fingers of both hands under the
belly; raiso tho body as high as possible without lifting tho forehead from
the ground, nnd givo tho body a smart
jerk to remove the mucus from ihe
throat and the wator from tho windpipe; hold tho body suspended long
enough, so that you may havo time to
count five (5) slowly. Repent the jerk
threo or four times slowly.
Second--Let tho patient be placed
face downward—-you maintaining your
position astride of tho body. Grasp
the clothing at the shoulder points, or
if the patient is naked place your
fingers into tho armpits with tho
thumbs on top of the shoulders, and
ruiso the chest as high as you can, letting thu head rcBt upon the ground.
Keep this position until you can count
three (3) slowly. Placo the patient on
the ground with the forehead on the
nrm and tlio neck straightened; see
that the mouth! and nose are free.
Placo your elbows against your knees
and your hands on the sides of tho
chest, over the lower ribs, press downward and inward with force, count two
(slowly), then suddenly let go and
grasp the shoulders as before and raise
tho chest, then press upon the ribs.
Those movements should be alternated
for ten or fifteen times a minute,
unless breathing has been rustoied
sooner. Use tliu same regularity as to
natural breathing.
Third -After breathing has been restored then restore tho animal heat.
Wrap the patient in blankets. Put
hot water, hot bricks, or anythitti; to
restore warmth. Warm (he head as
fast as tbo body lo prevent com-ul-
sinus. Rub tho body and slap lhe
fleshy parts. This will produce heat.
When you are satisfied that thepatioiit
e:iu swallow givo hot drinks--r-ofl'eo,
teas, or sparingly of spirits with hot
wnter. Place the patient ori n warm
bed, and let thero be plenty uf ft-eali
air hi the room. Keep the patient
quiet. Avoid delay. Artificial breathing is of the moHl importance. Do
not permit, the patient to lie on Ihe
back, unless some put'soii prevents llm
totit-ue from falling backward, whieh
miylic produce a fatal choking, If
breaihing ceases give smart slm-a on
the fnce or sudden jerks of the hair,
and it will sometimes start again. Du
not -live up too soon, for "within two
hours you may be near succosa.

To trno of its hi mate* whom she had
helped and who was Imyi-ihly jealous
tu du her buiuo servico in return ubo
said, "Do something for somebody
elso. A kind word, a bit nf practical
advice, a helping band, even if there is
not much iu it, will always bu doing
something fur me. And more than
that my child, it will ho doing something for yourself nud something for
God."
