International Events.
On the 19th of April, 1775, the
first   battle   between   British   mid
American troops was fought at Lexington, a small village between Concord and Boston.   The British were
successful, but the struggle for liberty thus begun eventually ended in
the treaty of peace being signed on
the 3rd of September, 1783, in which
Great   Britain    acknowledged   the
United States of America to be free,
sovereign and independent.  No fair
minded person acquainted with the
history of  American  events from
1761  to 1775 will deny that there
existed good grounds tor the revolution,   Tbo pig-headed King George
seemed  unable to comprehend that
it was-possible for the American
colonists successfully to resist the
execution of bis unjust and tyrannical laws.   The British nation gen.
orally cherished sympathy with the
colonists, at least up to the time of
tbe declaration of independence, July
ith, 1776.   But parliament yielded
to the wishes of the king, und nearly
half a continent was lost to the British empire. The bitter enmity which
tbe revolutionary war left on both
sides has, happily, been growing less
and less, and there never was a period
when so much friend linens existed
between the United States and Brit,
ain us exists to-day.   And there is
no   reason   why   tliis   friendliness
should not continue and expand.   In
nil fairness we cannot be held responsible for the blunders of our ancestors over a  hundred yours ago.
The world has been steadily advancing, aud we believe it would be quite
impossible now to induce a Biitish
parliament to commit tho stupidity
which  produced the American revolution.   At the time of tbe declaration of   Independence  the   United
States had n population of 2,614,003:
its present population is over 50,-
000,000.   In 1776 tlio country was
in a condition of hopeless poverty,
and when tbo war of independence
closed   she stood ou the verge of
bankruptcy; to-day tbe United States
stands in tho front rank as a wealthy
nation.   It would not be easy to
imagine what might have been the
present condition of affaire on this
continent if the original colonists hud
been treated with tbe consideration
they deserved, and   had remained
loyal to the mother country.   The
present population of Great Britain
and Ireland is about 35,500,000.  If
Great Britaiu and America (including Canada) were united the empire
would show a solid population of
about    92,000,000,   possessing   re-
AourcflH  and wealth such as would
make ber absolutely independent of
the rest of the world.   But there iH
not muoh prospect of a political union
between Great Britain aud tbe United States.   Tbey may, howover, cultivate an intimate friendship which
would be to their mutual advantage,
and stand aide by side in the development of oivil and religiousfroedoin.
And it is nut too muoh to hope that
tit'for« the end of tho pi-usunt c<-'i)tiii-y
tliui'i- nmy  bu  between the Anglo.
Haxou  iititioiiH a Ijiin alliance which
would give tliem tlie power to regulate the political affairs of the world.
A united empire of 96,000,000, uotn-
'imjwhI   of   Anglo-Saxons, would  be
practically   invulnerable,   In    the
meantime we are glad that the present relations between these two (pent
nations are so satisfactory and cordial,   All along the border between
CarunU and tbe United States the
interchsiigfi of friendly acts is marked.    We enter with the most perfect
good will into the fourth of July
festivities, and Americans generally
share with us iu the enthusiasm of
pur national celebrations.   We are
one jn blood, one in language, one in
the promotion and maintenance of
free   speech und free institutions
Let this international friendship be
strengthened, until the chances of
separation and conflict botween Brit-
sin and America shall become ini-
(Wttible.^^^^^^^^^

The Flsnery Interests.
Iu 1880 tho number of people engaged iu tho fishery industries of the
United States was 131,420. The fishing fleet consisted of (J,G05 vessels and
44,804 boats, and the total amount of
capital invested was $37,065,340. The
value of the great fisheries of tho sea,
the great rivers and the lakes, was
placed at that timo at 843,046,053, and
that of those in ninor inland waters at
81,500,000- in all 844,546,003. Tho
annual product of the British American sea fisheries are set down at about
820,0000,000. In France 80,875 sailors, manning 22,125 ships and smacks,
aro employed in fishing. Tho total
products from the French fisheries, in-
eluding tlie sum derived from thu sale
of oysters, amounts tuabmit835,000,000
per annum. The annual value of the
takes of fish in Norwegian waters is a
littlo over 815,000,000, with from 70,-
000 to 00,000 porsoiis, or eleven per
cent, of the whole population, employed in the fisheries, ami about 50,000
persons, or seven per cunt., m tho
shipping trade. Sweden derives from
its sea wealth about 81,825,000, while
the Dutch fisheries bring an annual
income ef fully 815,000,000. Russia
derives every year a large sum of
money frum her sturgeon and sterlet
fisheries, the amount being not less
than 820,000,000, while the fishing in-
terpsta of Denmark and 'Iceland each
yield an annual income of 5,000,000
crown. Great Britain claims to realise
about $50,000,000 annually froni her
fisheries, and has 120,000 persons constantly or occasionally employed in this
industry.

Wakmth in the Soil,—Professor
Pedhollow gives interesting data showing that stable manure makes a warmer
soil. In the course of a series of observations at Houghton Farm of the
hourly and daily variations in the
temperature of the earth at different
points down to the depth of seven
feet, and extending through May, the
summer months and September, tho
important practical conclusion was established that ordinary cultivation
tends to make soil temperature more
uniform, while it does not lessen the
liability to chill during the night; but
that stable manure, doubtless by the
heat furnished through its decay, does
diminish this danger, keeping the soil
warmer by from one-half to ono degree than a soil treated with commercial fertilizers,   This difference, though

catching at Straws.
The organs of the late provincial
administration are extremely exercised about the fate of this country
under   the   Smitho   government.
When the Kootenay bill wus passed
they cried out lustily, forgetful of
the fact that the only representatives of the defunct administration
were active supporters of that measure,   Now, when there Beems to be
a probability of the Kootenay act
being disallowed, the organs are uot
content, but evidently feel, although
they are afraid to confess, that the
Kootenny scheme was not half so
bad a thing for the country after
al).   Tbe wagon road through Eagle
pass, which formed a necessary part
of the scheme, is being pushed forward with considerable energy, apd
the   benefit** it will confer on the
•ountry aro becoming more obvious
every day.   We are also informed
that considerable numbers of prospectors are now going into Kootenay
with a view to prospecting and opening up mines.   Tiie publicity given
to that district as a result of the
parliamentary discussions lias resulted  in  inducing  immigration, and
immigration can hardly fail to develop tbe resources of the country.
If tbe Kootenay bill is sanctioned,
the  development  of  Kootenay is
sure to be rapid, for the company
are bound   to realize as rapidly as
possible upon their investment.   If
tbe bill fails, then the organs should
be content, but thero will accrue to
the country a certain amount of benefit, nevertheless.    The organs have
been pursuing the same tactics with
reference to the settlement act. They
denounced the act in  unmeasured
terms, and declared that, if carried
into effect, it would ruin the country.   But that act has not yet been
ratified, und may uot go into effect
until next year.   Tho organs tnrn
round and declare the settlement aot
a failure, and howl afresh because
the country is going to the dogs, and
there will be no money for needed
public improvements.   If the settlement act was bad for the country,
Burely  its failure could not also be
bad.   If it has failed, we stand precisely where the Beaven government
left us, and the ordinary revenues of
the country are just as large and as
available as if no settlement had
been attempted.   There is this difference, however; work on the dry-
dock has been virtually stopped, and
that insatiable whirlpool which has
for years been swallowing up our
revenues, without giving any return
whatever, no longer appears in the
provincial estimates.   For this fact
at least the organs should be thankful.   What did Mr, Beaven and tlie
organs accomplish towards a settlement of tho difficulties existing be*
tween this province and the federal
authorities?    They sent a plenipotentiary-extraordinary to Ottawa and
London in the person of Mr. De-
Cosmos, who by his singular lack of
statesmanship left the situation very
much worse than he found it    The
results of his mission were an attitude of hostility between  the two
governments which shut out all hope
of amicable settlement, und an enormous bill of over §10,000 which he
claimed from this province.   Now,
if Mr. Beaven and his friends had
remained in  office till the present
time, does any person who knows
the circumstances pretend to assert
that we would-have been nearer a
settlement?    We fancy not.   The
deadlock    would    have  continued
without prospect of relief, and the
dry-dock would have been going on
as a provincial work, drawing the
very life-blood out of tho state. Tlie
organs know this perfectly, and if
they were honest they would confess
it   We are now nearer a settlement than ever we were before, The
basis of settlement at least has been
agreed upon; and if (he act passed
at last session falls to the ground
there can be' very little doubt of its
ultimate completion when the parliaments meet again,   If the organ-;
were half as anxious to promote the
substantial progress of tho country
as   they are to manufacture grievances against the  present government, they would manifest a much
more commendable spirit     Their
chief concern seems to be the resto-
ration to office of those who will
feed them   liberally, and they are
wildly catching at straws with which
they propose to construct a fortification that will enable them to take
the citadel.

Shall we keep Sunday?
Not long ago it was mentioned in
this journal that the fishery authori
ties at Ottawa had rescinded  the
order permitting Sunday fishing. No
fishing will be allowed this season
between noon on Saturday and  G
o'clock Sunday night   Wc are glad
this step has been taken.    It wns
certainly not creditable to the government of Canada that a special
regulation should bo made to permit Sunday fishing.     The custom
was attended with consequences of
which probably the authorities did
not dreum.   Last year it was several
times reported that men had been
discharged from some of tho canneries because they refused to work
on Sunday.    Some of theso men
were Indians who had beeu taught
by   the   missionaries that   Sunday
labor was both wrong and unlawful.
They could not easily comprehend
bow a practice in itself wrong for
an Indian could bo right for a white
man and legated hy the professedly
Christian government of a professedly Christian   nation.    But theso
Indians had either to do violonco to
their conscience and work ou Sunday, or suffer tho consequences. Tho
effects   often   went   much further
than    mere   Sabbath   desecration.
Human    nature    is    very   much
the   same   in   the .Indian   as  in
the  whito  man.     One stop in a
wrong   direction leads to another,
and we-have heard of in stances in
which these people lost nll moral
restraint   because   they   were persuaded .   to    break   the   Sabbath.
Moral   sentiment   in   this country
does not bring a premium.   It too
often happens that the man who
makes rich regardless of the means
adopted receives the popular benediction.   We are beyond the reach
of many of those restraints whicli
in   other  lands   would provent us
from committing wrong. But altered
.circumstances and surroundings do
not   lessen   the  claims of duty or
change  either  the moral   or civil
law. . It is just as necessary that
Sabbath should be observed in British Columbia us in Ontario or England.   We have deliberately adopted
the English Sunday law, and made
it the law of this province.    If tho
law is good, let it be observed and
enforced; it it is not good, let it bu
repealed or amended.     It has become too much the custom*!n this
country to pass a good law and let
it lie as a dead letter on the statute
book because its enforcement might
interfere    with   somebody's   plans,
Such a practice leads inevitably to
to the degradation of all law, and
brings it into contempt    It is the
business of the legislature to enact
that which will promote the**welfare
of the greatest number.     If individual interests stand   in the way
of the general   good of  the state,
then they must suffer.     We shall
not now attempt to prove that the
observanre of the Sabbath as a day
of rest  is  in the   public interest.
There are few indeed who will undertake   to   dispute   a  proposition
which has so often been proved by
both argument and experience,     If,
then, we are to have a Sabbath in
British Columbia, the law establishing it should be enforced with firmness aud impartiality.   The plea of
necessity must uot be accepted as
sufficient unless it be well founded.
It very seldom happens that a man
who opens the doors of his shop on
Sunday  and   sells  goods over the
counter can successfully shield himself behind such a plea.    And yet
we are informed that this is done
every Sunday in this very city, and
the authorities take no notice of it.
We have seen men sawing wood,
building   houses,   and   performing
other works for whioh we believe
no excuse could be offered, und they
have not been molested.   Now, if
ono man is permitted to sell on Sunday, he not only breaks the law, but
takes an unfair advantage over his
neighboring merchant who refuses to
break it.     On week days all merchants stand upon the Hame footing,
and   he   whoso  wares are best and
cheapest, and who possesses the tact
and   enterprise   necessary  to draw
custom, will  by  legitimate   means
secure .success.    But tiie man who
sells on Sunday steals a march upon
his more scrupulous competitors by
breaking a law which they respect.
The force of examplo is powerful,
especially if that example points in
the direction of personal gain.   If
all   our  merchants   were   to open
their shops on Sunday, all  would
share equally in the profits of the
day; but  where would be our Sunday)   For the sake of the public
good we hope this pernicious practice of Sunday trading and Sunday
labor will stop;  and if those who
engage  in it will not voluntarily
conform to the requirements of the
law, we hope  the authorities will
take measures to prevent them from
taking an unfair advantage over law-
abiding citizens,    There is throughout this province a widespread sentiment In favor of Sabbath obser
vance, and the city of New Westminster should not allow itself to
stand in thu way of a movement so
commendable. Wo nre not in favor
of making our Sabbath a day of
irksome restraint and enforced idleness, All we claim is that it shall
be a day in which ordinary business
avocations shall cease, und the mind
anil body shall have wholesome rest
nml recreation in whatever way
individuals may think best—provided theso recreations aro not of
such a kind an to cause annoyance
to tlio public. We believe the Sab-
bath was made for man, and uot
man for the Sabbath.

The boat was found by Mr. Rowling
some distance down the North Arm on
Tuesday. It contained some provisions,
two bottles of liquor unopened, and a
bottle partly filled. The oars were attached to the row-locks, and it is bo-

Local Talent.—Few cities of tho
same size can boast of as much local
talent suitable for the entertainment
of public gatherings as New Westminster. And additions are constantly
made to the number of thoso whom
the public delight to honor. Those
who had tho good fortune to bo present nt the Blue Ribbon mooting last
Wedneaday evening were treated to
several pleasing surprises, Such wore
the song so sweetly sung, .and ao well
received, by Mias Agnes MoMurphy;
the Scotch »ong by hor vonor:.blo father, the sergeant-major; tho "Maiden Speech," ao well recited by Rev.
W. J. Dowler, B. A,t whicli fnirly
convulsed the audience and elicited
rapturous npplnuso; and last, but not
least, the recitation of "Father Avery's
Prayer," by Mrs. O. D. Knight, whose
clear enunciation, soul-stirring emphasis and graceful elocution placed
her, in tho estimation of competent
judges, at once in tho front rank of
our provincial reciters. By overy
possible token tho nudionco showed
their hearty appreciation of tho high
ordor of talent displayed. With such
resources ob thoso nt its disposal, the
Blue Ribbon Club should bo able to
live and flourish, oven in thedug-days.
Bovine Burglars.
There are a great many cows in this
city. There are good cows, thero nro
bad cowb, and there are cows which
are worse than bad. Many of those are
found prowling around the city, looking for open doors, which may be
doors of usefulness to. them, but certainly prove doors of destruction to
the gardens of the good citizens. For
"ways that are dark" some of these
cows distance oven the "heathen Chinee." It is simply wonderful how expert they have become in effecting
entrance to cabbage gardens and
lawns. It is questionable if anything
short uf a patent combination padlock is poof against them. Of the
entire brigade, there is one cow well
known throughout the city as the
champion burglar. She is of medium
size, young, sleek and fat, with white
hair and short, hooked horns. That
cow can open a gate, bars or door in a
manner that would do credit to many
a "christian" if it wero not for the
bad intent with which it is done.
Were Bhe to be killed (of whioh there
have been many and bitter threats), it
would not surprise ua if, besides a
large supply of tbo neighbors' vegetables, a complete set of burglar's
tools would be found inside of her. It
is believed tbat during her residence
in our oity she dins lessened the taxable value of private gardens, potatoo
bins nnd kitchen sheds by several hundreds of dollars. Now this is all
wrong, and really unpardonable in its
effects upon the patience and temper
of our good citizens. It is aaid that
the cow in question belongs to an employe of the city council, Theowner
has, we are informed, been notified,
entreated, warned, threatened and assessed with damages, to all of which
no attention is paid, save a few unredeemed promises. Will the council
direct Nightwntohmnn Jackman to
look aftor this matter ? Or will it devolve upon the injured parties to present the cow to the next grand jury ua
a nuisance ? It might, indeed, be a
nice point of law for the courts to decide whothor persons drinkjng milk
from such a cow could not be prosecuted for receiving stolen goods. Perhaps Mr. McBride might find some use
for hor at the penitentiary. O'Connor
could milk her as relaxation from his
scientific studies,

Tho annual meeting of the hospital
board was held on Monday last. Too
little interest was manifested in the
business of the meeting. The old
members of the board have all been

report of the board spoke of the successful management of tho hospital
under the present surgeon; and made
the pleasing announcement that the
donations secured through the fire
brigade had put the hospital out of
debt.

France and China.
The confident statement that matters had been arranged between France
and' China has not been confirmed by
later dispatches. It seems tlmt Marquis Tseng only remained one day in
Paris and then passed over to London.
The Chinese diplomat explains that it
was family affairs that caused him to
leave Franco so soon. But persons
engaged in his line of business have
always their excuses ready. Ambassadors and envoys are supposed to do
their work in secret. But that ia not
a very easy matter under present conditions. Onco only a privileged few
knew where an ambassador was or
what he was doing. Now the eyes of
civilized mankind are upon overy individual who rises above the general
mass, His coming and going are
known all over the world. The inferences to be drawn from his movements
are calculated simultaneously almost
at the antipodes. If he is more than
ordinarily close, a piece of fiction so'
adroitly got up that ho must affirm or
deny it publicly, will often smoke him
out of his hole. The inference in this
case is that if Tseng were arranging a
tieace with France he would nor have
eft Paris so suddenly. In fact, there
does not seem to be any way out of the
scrape without a retreat on one side or
the other, France, if the dispatches
are to be credited, has declared that
ahe will not recognize the suzerainty
of China in Anam. It follows that
either China must abandon her pretension, or Franco must take back what
she has advanced. The matter is in
that ugly shape in which .thero must
be a backdown somewhere, if a collision is to be prevented. There nro,
however, several ways by whioh the
ultima ratio might be avoided. France
could discredit her minister nt Shanghai, and say that he exceeded his instructions, or China could throw over
Tseng, as Bhe did the ambassador to
Ruasia whom he succeeded. The for-;
mor, it may be said, camo near losing
his head for conceding too muoh to the
northern bear. But it would not be a
new departure in Chinese diplomacy
to place Tseng in like danger for not
conceding enough.—S. F. Bulletin,
Management of the Star Boute
Cases.
Washington, D. 0., Juno 14.—Now
that the caso is ovor, it is time to tell
Borne facte about the prosecution which
havo been withheld until the case was
closed. In tho first place, the management of the prosecution has been
equally scandalous with the crimes
charged against the defendants. The
District Attorney here has always been
allowed $5 per day for the prosecution
of cases until Mr. Brewster came in.
The preceding Attorney-Generals ruled
this should be the official fee of special
counsel. This was made up by allowing the payment of lump sums as re-
tamers. When Bliss and Merrick
were put upon the extravagant pay of
$150 a day, it was inevitable that thoy
would prolong tho case to the utmost.
Bliss has, on the top of all this pay,
put in an extraordinary list of personal
expenses, which have been allowed up
to a very recent date. The amount of
extra matter run into this case only to
prolong it has resulted in so confusing
the case as to materially aid the defense. Then the reporting of the case
has been turned into a huge job,
When papers would come in whore
only a line of endorsement was put in
as testimony from tho packets enclosing them the reporters would put in
entire pages in the testimony, making
in the end huge books of theso bulky
papers. The stenographers wilt clear
between 130,000 and 840,000 on their
work, Tho other day it was estimated
from official sources that the coat of
thp two star route trials had been $1,-
000,000. It will go over that. It will
foot up nearer $1,200,000. Attorney-
General Brewster owea his place in
the Cabinet, partially at least, to being
connected with tho star route prosecutions. As special counsel under
MncVoagh, President Arthur pnt tho
cases in his hands aud then stood back.
MncVoagh refused to stay and prosecute them, and Mr. Browater, chiof of
the special-counsel, was taken. Now
President Arthur would bo perfectly
justified in dropping Browstor. The
star route cases arc at an end, and tho
government has failed wretchedly aftor
a moat extravagant and misdirected
uso of the means in its power. Senator Van Wyck has threatened to have
the Senate next wintor investigate the
Attorney-General's methods, or, rather, his lack of method.— Milwaukee

(CorrespmiOoiieo qf Hio Bulletin.)
Tho course of tho nvorage ocean
Bteamer. ou tho "inland passage" to
Alaska is about as crooked as the most
fastidious could wish. For instance,
we called at Victoria for ship's supplies
and for discharge of freight, being detained thus twelve hours. Then wo
steamed up the Gulf of Georgia directly on our way for about ninety miles
to Nanaimo, whore we coaled under
difficulties from the great Wellington
mines. Across the little Departure
Bay, little more than a-pistol shot from
the chute of the North Wellington
mine, we observed a group of deserted
and weather-beaten cabins-on tho point
of the beautiful little Now Castle IB-
land, whence was quarried tho fine
building stone for the San Francisco
Branch Mint. Putting off from this
snmo point of land is the wreck of a

told, was the famous Now Cnstlo coal
milie, tho oldest of the Pacific collieries, which was abandoned several
years ago because of the unquenchable
fire which had been kindled within its
walls and filled all its cavers and corridors with death, and thus shuttiug
down one df the finest coal mines on
the coast. But I am imitating the digressions of our steamer. From Nanaimo we returned over the same
course by whioh we came from Victoria,
to Port Townsend. Tliis doubling on
our courso cost us nearly two hundred,
miles extra travel, and a very annoying
delay. Packed «with freight, we left
Port Townsend at midnight, and in

With awe, us one enters this almost
limitless sweep of inland, island-studded seas. The charm of the first consciousness that you aro being, without
n jar or jolt, borne over these narrow
seas, almost fathomless iu their unbroken depths, winding in and out
among tiny islands, covered with forests nnd veined with various minerals,
is well-nigh irresistible. The average
tourist has no disposition to resist the

But as the scene broadens into empires

cabin of the gold hunter, and a simultaneous exclamation of pleasant surprise broke forth from our uninitiated
passengers.
hasrisburo and its mines.
At Harrisburg many of our passengers found their destination, at least
for the present. Their tents were soon
spread upon the ra»ny beach, and long
before night scores of them were off to
the gold fields. Strolling, or rather
stumbling and climbing through the
dripping, mossy, muddy town we found
the whole of it mapped off in mining
claims,- while through the center a
sluice was running f ullof muddy water.
Some of the minora gave us good reports from their diggings, but thore
was what ut first seemed to us a puzzling reticence and half-heartedness
about even the best reports, by whioh
the hurrying stranger would be easily
deceived. But if you could get into
the confidence of one of these same
men, you would readily have solved
the whole puzzle, nud you would be
prepared better to estimate the miner's
confidence iu his mines. I found the
absence of civil government a serious
barrier to all the mining and industrial interests of Alaska. Men, as a
rule, ore a little afraid to say they have
a good mine or a good business of any
kind, less some adventurer iu the absence of human law, and regardless of
nil higher law should dispute their
right by superior force, cunning or
downright meanness, and thus indirectly rob prospectors of all they have
found or can hope to find. I was shown
what I am convinced is a valuable
quartz mine, one of the largest ::i the
world, I was assured, which would long
ago have beeu fully developed, but for
this uncertainty. As it is tho proprietors are simply holding it and waiU
lug tho dawn of the light of civil government. But in spite of all their
rights and their vigilance, large sums
have been taken from tho "placers"
that cover the rook above, while hum
dreds of thousands of dollars, I was
assured by tbe superintendent of the
mine, have been wasted through careless and slovenly mining by those who
havo uo right to a foot of it. Minora
are uow scraping up the "tailings" on
tho beach hundreds uf feot below the
claim, aud washing out in rockers good
wages, hy the time we were ready to
loavo Harriaburg at midnight, many of
our gold-hunting fellow passengers had
"seen the elephant," aud armed with
tickets .for Victoria, Portland or San
Franoisco, returned by the same
steamer that brought. them. They
were thoroughly disgusted. Others
more timid never gave up their staterooms; while others still would gladly
have clung to the boat until she had
borne them out of the country forevor,
but alas, they were "dead broke," and
must stay a while longer at all hazards.
OTHEtt MINES.
Some of our gold-hunters pushed on
fur the Chiloat country, landing in
Pyramid Harbor and packing acroii
the portage to the interior. In about
thirty miles they reach the Yukon
tributaries, Some good prospects have
been found in the interior, I nm told,
but nothing seems to last. Mines suddenly "pinch out" or wash out. Some
good prospects on Admiralty bland,
but on the whole I am convinoed that
tho mining outlook in this part of our
groat Northwest Territory ia not such
ns to encourago any great rush. Indeed, I am inclined to utter a kindly
word of warning to young men of small
means against coming te Alaska for
any business just yet. For men of
ample means and energy thore are no
doubt some fortunes up here, but under the meet favorable circumstances
such fortunes can only be acquired by
the hardest industry. However, it
must not be supposed that Alaska is
poor in resources. Far from it. She
is unquestionably rich in (jbIi and furs.

YATES STHEET, VICTORIA,
Jill-to. The Kootenay Country.
INTERESTING DATA FROM A RELIABLE SOURCE,
(From tlie Victoria gtandtrd.)
Captain Bloadel, one of the promoters of the Kootenay Bill, arrived
here on Saturday last from Kootenay,
▼ia Idaho and Oregon. He left Kootenay mines on the 17th June and after
travelling fifty miles on the Kootenay
lake reached the mouth of the river.
Thence he proceeded up the river until
the 49th parallel—the boundary line-
was reached, making, owing to the sinuosity of the river a detour of 3jj
miles, although, "as tho crow flies,'
the actual distance is only 15 miles.
The travol from the Kootenay mineB
to the boundary is 85 miles. After
crossing the boundary 05 miles of
travel brings one to Bonner's Ferry in
Idaho Territory. The ferry ib on the
Kootenay Rivor and thence, coming
out, 50 miles of trail brings you to-l
Sand Point on tho Northern Pacific -
Railway. On arrival at Sand Point
Capt. Blasdel took tho Northern Pacific railway cars and by direct travel
of 400 miles on that line reached Portland, making tlie journey behind tho
iron horso in 24 hours. Ho informs us
that prospectors aro coming into tho
Kootenay district in search of precious
metals. They principally hail from
Montana, Salt Lako and Eastern Nevada. The promoters of the Kootenay
land scheme have built two handy
stoam launches which will be used to
expedite tho survey parties and their
supplies. The company has already
some 50 men at work on the road between Shuswap Lake and Columbia
River. No Chinese aro employed and
the company are making, bit,' efforts to
fmsh the wagon road through ns quick-
y as possible so that they can get in
their supplies. It is the intention of
the company this season to survey and
locate the line of railway from the
Columbia River to Kootenay Lake and,
in the language of Capt. Blasdel, "this
will be done as quickly as twenty dollar
pieces can do it." Capt. Blasdul states
that the interests of the company are
not in any way identical with those of
the Northern Pacific railway. Tho
ultimate object of the company is to
connect with the Canadian Pacific railway so that the products of tho lands
which have been grantod to the company may be shipped via tho Canada
Pacific. Our reporter asked Capt.
Blasdel whether it would not pay the
company bettor to ship tho lead ores
via the Northern Pacific and in
reply Capt. Blasdoi said: "Certainly
not; by crossing tho boundary lino we
would have to pay a duty of §30 per
ton on the lead ore, which in itself is
worth only 860 por ton, So we should
be handicapped to the extent of fully
100 per cent. It will pay ub far better
to bring the ore through British territory and ship ifc for smelting from
Burrard Inlet.
Rap.—But in tho event of your soiling lands grantod to you undor your
bill of .incorporation, what rights will
tho purchaser have.
Capt. Blasdel.—He will have all tho
rights that any other purchaser has
from tho govornment and tho rights of
the free miner will be recognized. Tho
minor will havo the right to go ou
those lands and prospect for the precious metals and coal just as is provided by your existing statutes.
Rep.—But in the event of damage
to growing crops ?
Capt. Blasdel-—Of courso the prospector has to make that good. That is
the law everywhere. If ho destroys
half an acre of wheat then of course
the owner of the land hns to be remunerated. But the freo miner's license always has its right. As to-the
lands on Kootenay Lako granted to us
I would give anybody a section merely
for the payment of taxes. We havo
not anything like such a good thing as
has been supposed.
Rep.—What is the object of your
scheme then!
Capt. Blasdel.—Well wo think that
we can do your country good. We can
introduce immigration and can make
tho country of some value to you, It
is all to your interest that the country
should b'e settled and by the introduction of capital that can be done. People here have no idea of the resources
of that country. Fish are abundant
in every stream. Trout, the most
beautiful I have evor seen, are caught
there. The Indians bring us in cariboo
and deer and barter them with us for
their requirements. The wild strawberries which I gathered only a few
weeks ago are as luscious as any I have
ever eaten. Tliese grow all along the
line of the Kootenay River. And the
gooseberries can be gathered in abundance. Tho climate is genial and in
fact the country is one which has to be
visited to bo appreciated. Wo shall do
all we can to develop that portion in
which we are interested. On the work
which wo now have iu hand we employ
no Chinese—not even a Chinese cook.
There is a future for Kootenay which
few can yet anticipate.

Five Months Immigration,
The heavy immigration aud tonnage
to Oregon nud Washington Territory
during tho past mouth has continued
unabated. Twenty-throo steamships
of the Oregon Railway aud Navigation
company aud Oregon Improvement
company have brought'from San Francisco during that timo 5,170 passongers
and 28,(150 tons of froight. This givon
a total since January lst of 25,592 passengers nnd 11,088 tons of froight, and
shows an increaso of 2'A net cunt, un
passenger business, and 05 per cunt, nu
freight over the same period last year.
Assuming the numbor of passengers
returning to Han Francisco to represent
the transient travel, we havo a bona
fide immigration by ocean thus far in
1883 of 17,083 souls, to which may be
added the large number teaming in
from the east. The ships of the Paoifio Coast company from San Francisco
to Puget Sound and Viotoria have been
compelled to increase their trips from
three times a month to weekly. Traffic to Alaska has also increased so as to
demand semi-monthly steamers with
full cargoes. Three now canneries
have been established. Recent rich
discoveries in tho mineral regions of
northern Idaho and Montana are attracting miners and prospectors from
all parts. The crop reports from sections east of the Cascade mountains
confirm the estimate of two hundred
thousand tons of grain for the coming
season. —Oregonian.

Where the House Fly Breeds.
As "fly time" app poaches overy
housekeeper wonders where and how
the, increasing swarms of pests multiply bo rapidly. The eggs, more whitish specks to the unaided eye, are laid
in little agglutinated piles in warm
manure or in decomposing vegetation,
especially that about our stables and
barnyards. From 80 to 100 are laid
at a time, and probably at threo or
four different intervals by the same fly,
though on this point wo have no exact data. Within 24 hours in summer
they hatch into footless maggots,
which, after rioting in filth till thoir
tender skins seem ready to burst from
repletion, bocotno full fed in less than
a week, and descending into the earth,
or sheltering under bouio old board,
contract to brown, shining objects,
rounded at both ends, and technically
known as puparin. Within the davk-
ness of this hardened skin profound
changes rapidly take placu, and tho insect passes through tlm pupa to the
perfect state, and finally, in about fivo
days, the interior ond of the pupnriuiu
is pushed off, and the fly quickly
crawls out. At firat its parts arc pale
and soft, and its wings are crumpled
and usoloss, but they soon expand,
and suddenly, without practice or
teaching, tho new fledged Ily wings its
way to your table to mock your dis-

ongtli of timo required from hatching
to maturity varies with tho season and
the temperature, but will uot exceed
ten days in midsummer, while tin; lifo
of tho perfeot fly lusts about three
weeks at tho same bousoii. As cold
weather approaches propagation ceases,
and tho older flies perish. A fow of
the more vigorous females, however,
retreat to some nook or cranny, where,
in a state of torpor, they survive until
the ensuing season—links 'twixt the
summer gone by and to come. Tlio
insect may also hibernate in the pupa
state in the ground. In rooms kept
continuously warm, ur in more southern latitudes, tho fly remains active all
winter, and our palaco sleeping-cars
bring thom daily to us from Florida
during tho coldest months of the yenr.

Petrified Bodies In a Coul Mine.
Marvellous scientific discoveries are

several weapons mid utensils of petrified wood aud stouo nud the fragments

second cavern, afterward discovered,
contained no fewer than eleven fossil-
lized bodies, described as being "of

that the walls of tho cave are covered
