L, P. FISHER Advertising Agent, 21 Merchant's
Exchange, flan Francisco, Is authorised to receive
Advertisement! tot this piper.
THIS PAPER K'
Newspaper Advertising Bureau (10 Spruce St.),
where advertising contracts may be made for It in
The Chinese Commission,
' Just now tlio Victoria papers are
quarreling over the Chinese commission. Hon. Mr. Cliapleim and Mr.
Justice Gray, who constitute the
commission, aro prepared to receive
nny evidence which mny be presented
lor or against the Chinese; but some
'if the newspapers oonteud that the
commission is un insult to British
Columbia, und should be properly
sat upon. We believe every one is
p npared to admit thit tbe appoint-
if -nt of this commission is n mis-
laice. It is an expensive undertaking for which thoro was was no jus-
tifioation. But the commission is
here, nntl io refuse,to recognize it or
furrii.il evidence upon the subject
into which it has been commissioned
to enquire seems to us uot only un-
wise but extremely childish. Some
years ago Mr. Edgar was sent to
this provinco to offer certain propositions for the adjustment of disputes
between tho provincial and Dominion
governments. Tlm people of Viotoria' ignored both -him and his mission, und treated him with thu most
marked disrespect. After waiting
many years they were glad to accept
nn adjustment very much less satisfactory than that offered by Mr.
Edgar. Don't let us repeat that
folly. Let every person who has
anything to say upon the Chinese
question place it beforo the commissioners, and let the people of Canada
know tbat the grievance we complain
ot is a real live grievance for which
speedy redress should come. In
opening the proceedings of the commission Hou. Mr. Chupleuu made a
statement which will bo interesting
to the people of British Colnmbia.
He said : "British* Columbia has repeatedly by her legislature, ns well
ns by her representatives in parliament, solicited tho executive und
parliament of Canada to enact a law
prohibiting the incoming of Chinese
to British Columbia. Nothing was
dono in that direction until last session of parliament, when Sir John
Macdonald, speaking in answer to a
motion asking parliament to enact a
law in the above sense, pledged his
government to issue a commission to
look into the whole subject during
the present session, and to consider
exhaustively its trade relations, its
social relations, and all those moral
considerations which it is alleged
make Chinese immigration undesirable, with the view, as ho stated, of
putting the government and parliament in u better position to deal
with the subject. He nlso stated
tbat it would be a part of tho duties
of tho commission to examine the
evidence submitted in Australia,
California and Washington, and to
condense and collate it, and to submit it with its report to parliament,
so that the parliament of Canada
might have in an accessible shapo all
the information whieh the legislative
bodies ot the United States and
Australia had, when they undertook
the work of legislating on this question. This proposition of the government met with the unanimous consent of parliament. The commission
has been named in fulfilment of that
pledge. The scope of its functions
is the samo as the pledge of the premier. It has made researches in
Washington, and is in possession of
ihe evidence and papers submitted
to congress. The chairman has visited San Francisco and has carefully
examined the different points submitted to the commission, by the
light of what is to be seen there, and
has taken the evidence of thoso who
should bo well informed. The commission is now opunod here for tho
purposes indicated in the Order-in-
Council, which has been read, appointing it. The commissioners wish
for the fullest information on all
the matters submitted to thom, viz,:
(1.) The advisability ot passing a
law to prohibit the incoming ot Chinese into British Columbia, or Canada. (2.) The advisability ol restricting the number coming in, or
of regulating it, and the best manner
of effectually carrying out such object. (3.) The social aud trade relations between the peoplo of British
Columbia, and Canada generally,
with the Chinese, both now, and in
view of the anticipated early completion ot the Canadian Pacific railway, as well aa the effective completion ot the other publio works, about
to be undertaken. (4.) Tha moral
considerations whioh arise out of the
residence und contact of the white
people with Ohinese hero and elsewhere, The commissioner's have already, by letters, invited the Executive Council, tbe Mayor, and the
members of the common council of
this oity, und other representative
officials, to give them whatever information is within their control, on
this important subject. Wo have
only to add that it is the intention
of the government to introduce legislation next session, and we venture
to oxpress the hope that all classes
VOLUME 26

NUMBER 12
of persons, as well of those favorable
to Ohinese immigration, as those opposed to it, will place before the
commission any facts or observations
which will throw light upon the subjects with which the commission has
to deal. We now invite all those
who, by their representative character, have a right to speak in the
name of the people of this province,
or, in tho name of its municipal
counoil, to aid in this investigation,
We also invite those who are connected with boards oi trade, or who
ore engaged in large manufacturing,
mining, or other industrial enterprises, to put their views and other
faots within their knowledge beforo
the commission. We also invite
thoso who are engaged in the pursuit
of agriculture, or stock raising, to
givo us suoh information as will
enable ua to judge of thai question
na it affects' their interests j and
finally, any Information upon the
moral questions from nll sources will
be received and 'considered by the
commission. The commissioners propose to visit as many of the leading
sections of the province aa the limited time at their disposal will permit
and will, he happy to receivo a visit
from any persons wishing to speak
with them on the subject. The
commissioners wish especially for
facts and invite all who feel disposed
to put 'their views, or give any statistical information, on paper aud to
hand it into the secretary of tht
commission."

Don't De Mean, Boys.
Sometimes I wonder what a mean
man thinks about when he goes to bed.
When he turns out the light and lies
down alone, he is then compelled to
be honest with himself. Not a bright
thought, not a generous impulse, not a
word of blessing, not a grateful look
comes back to him; not a penny dropped into the palm of poverty, nor the
balm of a loving word dropped into an
aching heart; no sunbeam of encouragement cost upon a struggling life:
no strong right hand of fellowship
rennhed out to help some fallen' mail to
his foet—when none of these thimrs
como to him as the "God bless you" of
the departed day, how he must try to
roll away from himself and sleep on
the othor Bide of the bed—when the
only victory ho can think of is some
mean victory, in which he has wronged
a neighbor. No wonder ho always
sneers when ho tries to smile. How
pure and good all the rest of the world
must look to him, and how careless
nnd dreary must his own path appear.
Why, even one isolated act of mean*
nesB iu enough to scatter cracker
crumbs in tho bed of the avenge man,
and what must be tho feelings of a
man whose whole life is given up to
mean acts? When there is ao much
suffering and heartache and misery in
the world, anyhow, why should anyone
add a pound of wickedness or sadness
to tlio general burden ? Don't be mean,
boys. Suffer injustice a thousand
times rather than commit it once.—
Burdelte.

You wish another tooth extracted, I

Sufferer—"Yea. It is just as bad
.aa the other one."
"Take a seat, sir."
v "But you have forgotten to call your
daughter."
"My daughter."
"Yea; she played the piano in tbe
adjoining room the last time you nulled one of my teeth, and that is why I
camo back to you instead of going to a
near dentist. I thought it was a regular thing."
"It waa a mere accident; but do you
mean to say you would like to have
her piny again whilo I am operating?"
"Of course."
"Doea her music ease the pain ?"
"Yos. Nothing brings forgetful*
ness of a littlo affliction so much ns a
greater one."

The philologist of the Detroit Fret
Press enlighten, the uninatruoted read-
era of that journal as to the use of the
muoh misapplied word "couple" in this
wire:—"The root of the word, la *
Hebrew noun, meaning 'a fetter,1 bat
we got it from tho Latin copula,
a joining, and it ahould never ba wad
except in the tense of two joined together. A man and hia wite are properly 'a couple;' ao ore two hound, when
strapped together: but two egga are
not a couple; two pins are not a couple,
nor are two daya a 'couple of daya,'
Fowls, when alive and running about
are not couplea; but wheu killed, and
tied in pairs for sale, they become
couples. 	
An old German naturalist tolls that

The Chinese Question.
Thn im-uitiiTfi of tli« Oliiiiew eoui-
iiiiHKioii will meet nt tin; Court
House in this city ivxt Tuesday
afternoon. It i-4 to he lio|x*d overy
on' who poHHt's-;f-H .such facta us will
throw light upon the .subject for
which the investigation is being cur-
vied Ol) -will come forward and present them to th$ commission. This in
especially ilosmitilc in view of tho
fact that a section of the press and
people of Victoria have endeavored
to ttinhnrraas tho investigation, oven
going no far us to denounce any
person who furnishes evidence.
Nothing could be more suicidal.
Aro wo afraid that the representations made, un the strength of which
this commission has boen appointed,
will be found MimiiHlaiiied hy facts?
If so, it nmy be wise for us to
avoid the (inquiry, But there is
surely no ground for suoh misapprehension. The Chinese evil is
too well known und too urgent in
its call for redress to he afraid of
investigation. Oo the fust page of
this paper we give a report of Hon.
Mr. Chapleau's opening address at
Victoria, from which the scope of
the enquiry may he learned. In
our next issue we shall have some
thing more to say about the singular course pursued hy a portion of
the Viotoria press on this question.
land Frauds.
If common report is worthy of
belief there has been a great deal of
fraud practised in the acquirement
of public lands. The law regulating the preemption of crown lands
is very strict, but it is stated that
thia law is systematically evaded
tnd violated by persons who would
sea reel y lie suspected of fraud.
Among the safeguards which the
land aot provides, lirst comes the
tlvchiratioii  «f   tho pre-empt or.    In
this declaration Ite must utfiim:
"That my application to record is
not made in trust for, on behalf of,
or in collusion with, any other person or persons, but honestly on my
owu behalf for settlement and occupation." It is provided that "if
the applicant shall in such declaration make any statement, knowing
the samo tu be false, he shall have
no right nt law or in equity to the
land tbe record of wliich he may
Imve obtained by the making of
suoh declaration." Now, we ure
inclined to suspect tliat there aro
some holding certificates uf record,
and even crown grants, wbo could
not honestly subscribe to such a
declaration, and in every suoh in
nUnce the record is of no legal value
wljatever, and tho person holding it
way be dispossessed by process of law.
After haying obtained a certificate
pf record, the aot requires a "con-
tinuous bona fide personal residence
of the procraptor, his agent, or
family.'1 und ik deolares that "Indians o.r Ohinamen shall not be considered ugunts." Wo are afraid this
clause of the act has been evaded; in
ma.ny yrnys, There is a, clause providing that the pre-emptor may uh-
Hput himself for \wo months in each
year without destroying his claim;
*Mid under certain circumstances the
chief commissioner may permit an
absence of four months. Before
certificate of improvements can issue
it is necessary (hab t-|ie pre emptor
should make u declaration, su ported by two witnesses, that he has
made permanent improvements on
his claim to the value of $2.f>0 per
acre. It is commonly reported that
in very many instances this provision bus la-en shamefully evaded.
The land laws altogether may be
good enough, but lhe temptation to
uct dishonestly is so great with some
men thnt it becomes stronger than
tbu fear of committing perjury.
We believe there sbould be an officer uf the government appointed
whose d'lty it would be to inspect
personally mI) pre-emption claims so
as to ascertain whether tho improve*
itipnts nvouwary to obtaining a certificate have actually been made.
In tbe public interest it is necessary
that no person ahould be able to
secure public lands without nt least
jwrforming the required improve-
ment*- and tbe facility witli which
declarations have beeu obtained
shows clearly that there is need of
some other safeguard. Wo have
not too iiiiivIi land for the purpose
of actual settlement: Jet it be pre
•erred aa muoh ta possible for those
who will bwome pertunent •ettlew,
We do not know what course the
city council intends to pursue, now
tbat the by-law has been carded
enabling it to sell the public
sqates. It may not bo out of place,
however, to suggest that it would be
advisable to sell a sufficient number
of lots to obtain the sum of say
$50,000. This sum should he
placed in the bank in readiness so
that it would be available whenever
wanted for railway purposes. There
are a number of people anxious to
possess themselves of city lots as
soon as the sale takes place, and we
believe the present would1 be as good
a time as any to place a portion of
this property on the market. It is
altogether probable some of those
who purchase intend to improve
their property, and such improvements will add to the beauty and
value of the city. If houses aio ca
be built,-thia is tlie time to build
them. Wo are of opinion tliat Vic-
toiiu Garden Bhould be sold first.
But it might be well to,reserve a
few lots hero and therein this reserve, for future contingencies!
These reserved lots would be increased in valuo by the improvement
of adjoining lots, and might he sold
afterwards as money may bo required for whatever objects it is
thought best tu apply tlie result of
these sales. Since the visit of Mr.
Van Home there seemo to he no
doubt that the 0. P. R. will be extended down to Coal Harbor or
EugliBh Bay, and it is altogether
probable tbe route selected will be
via Burnaby Lake. That is the
route plainly indicated hy Mr. Van
Home on tho maps. It is useless,
therefore, for ns to consider any
longer by what means we may secure tho construction of the New
Westminster k Port Moody Railway. That road will havo to be
abandoned because it would be utterly useless. If we are to be connected with the C. P. R. by a
branch line (or a spur, as Mr. Van
Home calls it), the length of lhat
line will probably not exceed three
miles, and the route is such that
the cost of making a road bed
would probably not exceed $5,000
per mile. Mr. Van Home wob of
opinion that there would be no difficulty about constructing this spur,
and if by any means the syndicate
failed to construct it, the work could
be undertaken by the city itself at
it very moderate outlay. Mr. Van
Hornc meiiliom-d, among other
things, thut the company was anxious to locate its machine shops
at some point where there is an
abundant supply of fresh water.
Now, this city has an exhaustions
supply of that very thing, and possibly the company might he induced
to locate some of its woiks here. If
we could secure for -this city the
workshops of the C. P. R. it would
pay us to give a bonus of $250,000,
or oven more, Perhaps it might be
worth while for the city council to
approach the syndicate on this question. While the sale by-law was
hefuro the ]>eople, several gentlemen
had a great many suggestion^ to
make. Now that the by-law is
passed, we hope these gentlemen
will give the council the benefit of
their opinion* We believe it is the
pin-pose of the council, as well as the
citizens, that the proceeds of the
sale shall be expended in such a
way as to bring the greatest pos*
sible advantage to the city, aud it
will now be quite in order to discuss whatever schemes may be pnt
forward with that object in view.
If the $50,000 mentioned in the
bylaw for railway purposes is not
needed, it may he devoted to some
other object, with the consent of the
citiapns. It must be clearly understood, however, that no patt of the
proceeds of this salo is to be expended for ordinary city purposes. It
should he wholly applied to permanent improvements such as are beyond the reach of the ordinary revenue, and we should endeavor to
invest a part of it at least in reproductive works. Among these may
be mentioned a new city hall. The
city should have a hall and offices
uf its owu, and in this way not only
would rent be saved but a considerable income might he obtained. The
same observation will apply to wuter
worka. The proceeds of these
squares, if the sales nro properly
managed, wil) amount to a considerable sum, and it ought to be the
earnest wish of every one to make
it go as far us possible.

The Kino Salmon. -On Thursday
night Mr. Andenon took the largest
salmon, we believe, that has ever been
caught iu Fraser River. It measured
4 ft. 5 inches in length, ,2 ft. 74 ins.
round the body, and weighed 78 lbs.
This fish is locally known as the Chinook salmon, and is technically known
aB "Salmo Quinnatt" or "Oncorryn-
chus Ohouica" (Halbaum) It weighs
more by H lbs. than any other salmon
taken in these waters of whioh we
have tiny record. It was purchased by
Oapt Pittendrigh, who intends, to
havo it skinned nnd stuffed and sent
to Ottawa for exhibition.
James Ciillon, Pool's Island, N. P.,
.writes; "I have been watching the progress of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil since
its introduction to tbis place, and with
much pleasure state that my anticipations of ita success have bean fully real--
teed, it having cared me of bronchitis
and soreness of nose; while not a few of
my 'rheumatic neighbors' (one old lady
in particular) pronounce it to be the beat

require any longer a sponsor, but if yon
wish me to act aa such, I shall be only
too happy to have my name connected

Surgical Operation.—About two

received a slight wound an the left
arm, just above the elbow. This
wound has never been successfully
healed, although a great many applications have beon tried. On Wednesday an examination was made by Drs,
McLeod &■ Mc Swain, and it was found
that extensive suppuration of the bone
had taken place. It was found necessary to remove a considerable portion
of the bono, and it is hoped tne arm
may be saved. The operation was
successfully performed, and although
necessarily tedious, the patient bore'
it with great courage, and Is doing as
well as could be expected.

Australian Confederacy.—A confederation of the various Australian
colonies seems likely to issue frum the
jacent pourparlers betwixt their executives and the imperial govornment on
the proposal to annex Now Guinea and
the Australian protest against the de*
Eortation of French convicts. Lord
leVby pointed out that any scheme of
co-operation between the home government and the governments of Australasia requires that the colonial governments Bhould form an administrative unit—should in fact represent a
Dominion. The suggestion lias been
eagerly accepted. Both the Victoria
houses of legislature have cost their
votes fur confederation; Queensland
and Tasmania followed suit; and well-
informed authorities declare there will
bo 110 difficulty about the other colonics. This has brought within view
a realization of a pet idea of many
colonial statesmen—tho idea of forming a Dominion of tho Australasian
colonies.— The Week.

. Mr. J. R, Johnston could not compete, as he was one ot the judges, but
he threw the heavy stone 3G ft., and
the light stone 55 ft. . We understand
that Mr. Johnston has an excellent
record as an athlete, having competed
on several occasions with the world's
champion, Donald Dennie. Some of
the contests adve Used had to be withdrawn on account of the weather. The
ball in the evening was attended by
about 200 persons, and is pronounced
a complete success, the arrangements
havintr been made with judgment and
carried out with efficiency. Mr. Car-
michael was present in kilts and tartan and entertained the company with
the inspiring strains uf the bagpipes.
The proceedings during the day were
enlivened also by the Royal City Band,
which supplied music for the ball.
Dancing was kept up till about 4 o'olock
Wednesday morning. The fint Scotch
gathering in New Westminster may be,
pronounced as much of a success aa
could reasonably be expected! under
such adverse circumstances. If the
weather had been fine, its success would
have been complete.

Farmers have just finished their hay
harvest, with a few exceptions, and in
quality and quantity it ie first-class.
AU crops are splendid, with the exception of the mosquito crop, whioh was
not worth gathering. Messrs. D. McGillivray and H. Southard have purchased a thrashing machine of the
Climax mako with which they thrashed
1500 bushels in less than a day. Mr.
Burr has sold threo Osborne self binders in tho Chilliwhack and Sumas settlement, one to Mrs. Evans, one to
Win. Ohadsey, and one to A. S. Vedder. With one of these machines une
*an and threo hones oan do as muoh
work as twelve men could du by hand.
Every farmer whu raises much grain
should invest in one. The Coquilitza
cheese factory, owned by Mr. A. 0.
Wells, is turning out a large quantity
of tint-class cheese whieh meets with
a ready sale. It ia an established fact
that we can make a splendid article of
cheese and butter in theso settle*

been appointed to collect the provincial
revenue tax in this part of the district.
There have been a large number of
people looking for homes here lately,

KnrroR Columbian.—It may be worth
while to draw public attention to on at*
tempt now bang made to drag our school
system into the political arena, In a
rambling and disjointed communication
which appeared ia the Guardian of
Wednesday lut there is evidence of a
desire to insinuate—not, perhaps, that
there is—but that there might be, something rotten in the system; that ita
machinery may be used by a designing
politician to further his own ends. "Censor" is quite right when ho says that
children should be trained to think for
themselves, but he makes it perfectly
evident that he was not so trained, or
that he is not honest enough to use his
training. Every thinking, practical man
knows that "Censor's" argument might
be used against any system of human
devising that you choose to name. It is
simply the old lament over the impossibility of eliminating selfishness and Its
attendant evils from the administration
of public affain; and it is not, there*
fon, an honest argument against* any
particular system, except it eon be shown
—end "Censor" has not attempted to
show—that the machinery of the intern
attacked offers peculiar opportunities to
the corruptlonist.
The troth of the matter seems to be
that "Censor" and his friends hate the
sohool system, and would fain abolish it,
in order that education might become
again a luxury for the rich, and that the
bulk of the people might return to that
state of ignorance in which they were
before the advent of common schools—
that state of Ignorance which afforded
so many opportunities to charlatans and
demagogues, and the passing away of
which they so deeply lament.
If "Censor" has any reasonable, practical suggestions to advance for the.
amendment of our public school system,
he can be aure of an attentive audience;
but if he meditates simply a destructive
onslaught upon that system, he will meet
with tittle sympathy outside the ollice
to which he is attached. There are
hundnds of British Columbians who
would hardly cross tho street to decide
the late of a political battle botween tho
"ins" and "outs"— * ho are utterly sick
of this toothless mumbling nbout imaginary corruption—this dotard twaddle
about "Honest John," and the rest of it;
but who aro ready, If need he, to nse
tongue or pen or head In the Defence of
our common schools, ud of that lll*rty
and enlightenment, la the advoneeuent
and perpetuation of whioh they play
suoh an important part. Parbst.
Police Constable Wiggins'. Can they
tell me why our police magistrate and
J. P.b refuse to uphold him in his actions? I nfer to the case in the police
court on  Aug. 12th.    It #as clearly
Cved fn court that the defendant had
n guilty of the most libuslve language;
yet the case was dismissed. I shouli
like to know for what reasons?
4. For what reason waa Mr. \V. B.
Wilson allowed to escape without a fine
when those who were brought up for the
same offense, both before his case and
after, have in every instance been fined;
and no case brought in court was as bad
as this one, for he publicly defied both
the council and constable?
5. About aix weeks ago the council
passed a resolution, ordering the board
of works to have Daggett's tank cleaned
out and put into repair. Nothing has
been done up to the present time. Can
the council justify the inaction ol the
board of works in this matter?

Some Pointed Questions.
Editor Columbia**.—Will yon kindly
allow me to ask our city councillors m
few questions through the- medium of
your paper, as they affect a number liv*
ing fn this city beside myself:
1. Can a city councillor legally retain
his seat after supplying the council with
gooda or furnishing them with either
material or labor, considering the oath
he take* when being sworn into office?
2. Is then aay other city in this province, or lh any of the provinces, situated
the same as this oity is with regard to
ita polios magistrate, vis: being able to
come down from the benob any time he
chouse', pat a J. F, in the place tbat lie

of kindness occupied his seat to alk-w
him to make money as counsel; aa d,
stranger still, putting the council I to

An Outside Opinion.
G. F. Giles writes from this city to
tho Lindsay (Ont.) Post a lotter from
which we make the following extract.
After describing the trip from Victoria
to the gulf, he says: "Quartering
across tho gulf can be Been the Sand
Heads light house nt tho mouth of the
Fraser. Soon tho bluo waters change
to a whitish hue and a muddy line of
water is seen in tho distance, for the
waters of tho Fraser spread far into
the gulf. We soon enter the shifting
channel of the 8ond Heads, and for
five miles we hear the cry nf the lead
starting at by thu deep, 5 or 30 foot,
decreasing to j less 2, or 10 foet (>
inches. Soon we ate iu the swift
muddy channel of thu Frasor, passing
its rich dyknd delta lands, its white
canneries and rows of fishing boats.
Some of the canneries have large numbers of Indians camped close to them.
as they do must uf tho netting. Now
we atop at a cannery. Tho wharf is
covered with lonif-tailed Chinamen,
who do the fish-canning work. As we
pass up on the river the skifia of the
salmon fisheries drift by—at oue und a
SO0*yurd£gilt not and a five gallon
empty can at thu other ns a buo*.
All the way up wu pass wooded islamU
for some fifteoti miles, when as wu
round the point of one nf the largest
tbe royal uity nf New Westminster is
in sight n milo distant, sloping up
gently from tho river. On the wharf
we find as overy whero elm- in thit
country plenty nf Chinameii and Indians. Far ton many nf thorn both
for the good of the country. Wo have
now come to the end of nur journey
for the present, and a* I fear I havu
not proved vory interesting I will close
for the present, saying Uw the benefit
of my Lindsay friends I would not
advise any mechanics, clerks or labor-
en to oome to British Columbia at
present, no matter what you bear, as I
know there are carpenters and all other
building mechanics, machinists and
clerks tliat cau set nothing to do either
in Victoria or here unless thoy go to
work on the railroad. Fares uro cheap
from Portland, (Oregon), Seattle, Tacoma and other places, and overy boat
brings men who want employment.
It was different a yoar ago. Then the
demand for labor was greater than Iho
supply; now it is just the other way.
I think farm laborers who understand
their work could mako money. There
is plenty of Und to clear and the men
in this country who own it will not
dear it or work ft,   I know of a gang
of Chinamen who are clearing land
eight miles from here and getting $50
an acre fnr it, and I am sure one good
Canadian would do more work than
three of them. They also get all the
eordwood off it and although you can
cut all you want within a mile of town
for nothing it ia worth S4 a curd here,
and pine and fir at that. Vegetables
and fruit will grow almost uny size
here, but the demand in this instance
is greater than tho Bupply. Hardly
anyone raises vegetables. Most of
them are brought from San Francisco
or Oregon. It appears to be too small
a business for landholders hero, though
prices aro very high. So arc poultry,
eggs, butter and all farm produce,
Fruit is cheap find trees are loaded
with cherries, plums, and all other
small fruit except peaches, which do
not grow here.
Corns cause intolerable pain,   Hollo-
way's Corn Cure removes the trouble.
Newspaper Notes.
CULLED AND CUPPED FROM EXCHANGES.
Aimmg some notes about the Canadian Pacific Kailroad,* the Calgary
Herald says: Besides the numerous
small streams which have to bo bridged, tho following bridges are now
either being prepared or are in courso
of construction: The lirst one we come
to is at the second crossing of the Kicking Horse river, fivo miles west of
Summit. It is a one-span Howe truss
bridge, xi>5 feet long, and 80 feet above
tho river bed, and resting on a rock
foundation. Then comes tho tunnel,
136 feet long, oight miles from Summit. Boulder Creek, five miles further west, has a pile trusste 210 feet
long and 33 feet high. Otter Tail
Oreek, sixteen miles from Summit, is
spanned by a bridge 010 feet long, of
which SOO feet is truaslo work, while
the remainder is Howe truss, 112 feet
in height. The third crossing of the
Kicking Horse, which is nineteen and
a halt milos distant, has a pile trussle,
200 feet long and 20 feet high. Porcupine Greek, about two and a half
miles further on, has a Queen truss,
30 feet long, and a 45-foot truBsle.
The fourth crossing of the Kicking
Horse is thirty-one miles from Summit,
has a through bridge—Howe trusa—
of two spans, each 65 feet long and 26
feet high. The fifth crossing, four
miles further west, has a Howe truss
with two spans, 165 and 154 feet respectively, with 00 feet of trussle at
either end, and is 46 feet high.
The announcement made by Superintendent Van Home of the Canadian
Pacific Railway to the city council of
New V?( -.tiniiister is of the greatest
importance, not only to that section of
the province but to this portion as
well. It shows very clearly that the
syndicate mean business oh an immense scale iu the near future, at
whatever point they may select near
Coal Harbor for. tho terminus of the
Canadian Pacific Railway. A lino of
steamships to China and Japan, it will
be seen, is a part of the programme of
the syndicate, and, taking the statement as a whole, it makos a highly encouraging outlook for the future of this
province, aud particularly the coast
section of it. While there is n good
prospect of lively times at Burrard Inlet tho people of this city 'should not
be idle, but watchful of their own interests and not only be satisfied with a
railway from Esquimalt to Nanaimo,
but use their influence to have a proper
ferry connection established as soon as
the Canadian Pacifio Railway is completed between the terminus on the
mainland and somo point on this
Island. If that is accomplished we
will receive our share of prosperity and
it will make this city and its surroundings what nature intended they Bhould
bo, the Queen city of the West nud the
terminus of the great highway from
tho Atlantic to the Pacific, and hence
the starting point for China, Japan and
Australia.—Victoria Standard.
Mr. Charles Crocker, vice-president
of tho Central Pacific railway, arrived
hero yesterday morning from Viotoria,
and is a guest at the Helton. His visit
has no business significance, he having
como to save two days' time by taking
the steamer for San Francisco to-morrow night. His visit to Victoria was
for the purpose of permanently organizing a company to build the Island
railway from Esquimalt harbor to Nanaimo, a distance of seventy miles.
This wai done, and the following gentlemen tVctcd directors: Robort Dunsmuir, Charles Crocker, Charles F.
Crocker, John Brydon, and George
Dunsmuir, The officers are as follows:
President, Robert Dunsmuir; vice-
President, Charles F. Crocker; Secretary, Mr. Pooley. To an Oreyonian
reporter who called, Mr. Crocker Baid
that work would begin as soon hb ihe
plans had been approved by tho Dominion Government's agent. Twenty
miles had been permanently located.
Under the act creating the road, it becomes tho properly nf the company
whenever it ia finished. They have
until June 15,1887, in which to complete the work, but it will probably lio
finished within eighteen months from
this time, it being to the interest 6|
tho oompnny tn complete it as early as
possible, without uniiucflBSiiry waste in
pushing construction. Tim cost will
bo about .£1,000,000. Mr. jQraoker
added laughingly: "It will ho the only
line ilmtwi* will roally own. Every
oilier mad in churned by the people ns
belonging lo thom, aud we ate npurnt-
ing it for them." Answering an inquiry relative In the future of the Central Pacific's Oregon extension, Mr.
Crocker saul.hu did not waut tu build
another milo of railroad in California
until tii ■ people munifuated some desire
tn have morii raili-nnds. Their extension to a connection with the Oregon
nfi-1 California near the State lino
would likely be built some lime, but
nut in ihe immediate future.- Portland
Orfjonian.
Thus, between Emory and Boston Bar,
a distance of 20 miles, the average cost
of construction exceeds 980,000 per
milo, the road-bed for twenty miles
having been hewn out of solid granite
and carried through no less than thirteen tunnels and over eight large and
fourteen small bridges. Between Bob
.tun Bar and Yale the line follows the
Fraser through a vast canyon flanked
by cliffs thousands of feet high. The
bridge and trestle work is enormously
heavy, there being no less than 500
structures, not counting tunnels, between Port Moody and Kamloops.
The money spent on the tunnels alone
would have built 86 miles of branch
lines in Southern Manitoba. The road
whon completed will certainly be a
perfect one in its way. The cuttings
are 22 feet wide and the embankment
17 feet; the tunnels are 22 feet wide
by 21 in height; and the bridges ure
the heaviest Howso truss. Tho track
will be laid with 00-pound steel rails.
Tho country will have something to
show for the expenditure of its money,
but what practical benefit will it be
to Canada 1 The mongrel white, Indian
and Chinese population of British Columbia is n; t worth the half of ton millions, not to speak of tho fifteen or
twenty millions more that will be sunk
in carrying the rood through the Rooky
mountains, twice across the Columbia
and then over the Selkirk range, from
the mouth of Kicking Hone Pass to
Kamloops. The construction of the
road from the prairies to the sea is an
engineering feat almost without a
parallel on this continent, and that is
tho best and most that can be sold of
It. From a political point df view, it
may bave been necessary; but regarding it purely as a business transaction
it is the wildest and the maddest and
the most ruinous freak 5,000,000 of
sane people ever indulged it.— Winnipeg Sun,    .

A REMARKABLE STORY.
She put her mother to bed iu tho
meantime, and did all the little things
■fnr hur wliich were a part of Bflra.
John's system. She brushed her
lmir, still so pretty; Bhe tied nicely,
at if it wero an article nf full dress,
the strings of her nightcap; Bhe put
nil her little things by her on the table
by her btdside—her Bible and prayer-
book, tho navel she had been reading
on the ji>uriioy..t biscuit in ease]Bhe
should wake up feeling faint in the
night. There was quite an array of
small matters. And then Hester
kissed her mother and bid her gu to
sleep. "You will not bu long of coin*
ing to bed, dear?" Mrs. John said; and
the girl promised. But Bhe went away,
carrying her cnndle into une wainscoted room after another, asking herself if she liked them. She had been
used to big white rooms in France.
She saw gleams of her own face and
rofloutions of her light in the deop
brown uf these walls, with a pleasant
little thrill oi alarm. It was all very
strange, Bhe had never seen anything
like it before; but what was the reason why papa left? What had he
done? What had been dune to him?
One of the down-stairs rooms opened
upon a pretty veranda, into which, ahe
was just about stepping, notwithstanding her, dread that the wind would
blow her candle out, when suddenly
she was met by n large and stately
figure which made the heart jump in
Hester's breast. Miss Catherine had
come out, as she did so often nt night,
with a white shawl thrown over, her
cap. The road was so quiet—and if
it had been ever bu noisy Catherine
Vernon could surely dress aa Bhe
pleased, and go as she pleased, froufl
one place tu another in Redborough '
and its. neighborhood. She saw coming out upon her in the light of a
caudle a pair of brown eyes, large and
. wide open, full of eager curiosity, with
a tall girl behind thein somewhat high-
shouldered, with clustering curly, short
hair. Catherine Vernon waa nut without prejudices, uud she did not like
Mrs. John, nur did she expect (or perhaps intend) to like her daughter.
There was something in the girl's face
whioh disarmed her suspicion; but she
was not a person to give in, and givo
up her foregone conclusion, on any
such trifling occasion as that.
Catherine Vernon had come tu see
with her own eyes that her guests or
tenants hod arrived, and that they
wero gumfortable. They were relations, whioh justified tho want of ceremony; but, perhaps, if they had not
been poor, and slit Iv '1 uot been their
benefactor, ahe would scarcely, in bo
very easy a way, with a shawl over
Iter cap, and at an hour not adapted
for visits, have made tho first call
upon them. Sho would have been
more indignant than auy one at such
a suggestion; but human motives are
yery subtile, and, no doubt, though
she was not in the least aware uf it,
this was true. To be sure, thero were
circumstances in which sueh a visit
would have seemed, of all things, the
muat kind) but not, perhaps, with per-
ions so little in sympathy as Catherine Vernon and Mrs. John. She
knew Bhe had boen substantially kind.
It is so much easier to bo substantially
kind than to show that tender regard
fur other people's feelings which is the
nuly thing which ever calls for true
gratitude; and perhaps Ciitherii.0 had
unt alt mint Iter escaped the deteriorating iufliiuiices of too much prosperity.
In her solitude she had become a great
observer %oi men—and women) and
was disposed tn find much amusement
in thia observation. Misa Vernon was
half ware that other motives than
those of pure benevolence affected her
mind as she went that evening to the
Vernonry. Curiosity was in it. She
could not but wonder how Mrs. John
was feeing, what she thought of all
thpae changes. Sho was glad that; her
cousin's widow had, come homo, where
jd\e cnuU^ bu looked after, and where
it would be seen that nothing happened
to her; but she had wondered above
measure when her offer of shelter and
a home had beon accepted, not knowing, of course, anything about that
yery active factor in Mra. John's affairs
who whs known to the people iu Redborough only aa "the little girl." Catherine Vernon thought that she hep
self, in Jflr-s. .John's, position, would
have starved or worked her fingers to
ine bone rather than have con*,e back
in such a humiliated condition to the
neighborhood where she had held so
different a place. She was rather glad
to feel herself justified in her contempt of her cousin's wife by this fail-
me in her nf all "proper pride;" and
ahe- allowed curiosity aiid a sense of
superiority, and her low estimate of
Mn. John's capacity of feeling, to
carry the day over her natural sense
of courtesy. What so natural, she
said to herself, as that she should run
out and aee whether they had arrivod,
s^nd if they were comfortable, aud establish friendly, ow? rotations at once,
without waiting I'm- formalities? Qui
s'exeute -'accuse. Miss Vernon certainly knew, nt the bottom of her
heart, that sorrow and downfall merited a more respectful accoat; but then
Mrs. John had none of those delioa-
ciei of feeling, or it was not in nature
that she would have come at all. And
nothing could be more substantially
kind than Catherine knew she had
been. She had engaged an uxcellent
servant for them—a woman whu had
been in her own house, and who was
a capital cook, and capable of taking
a fcind of charge as housekeeper, if
Mrs. John still remained incapable, as
of old: and, no doubt. Miss Vernon
thought, there would be a foreign
bfijuo: of soiqe sort or other io take
care of "the little girl," Her own
maid accompanied her to the gate,
t,hen went round to the humbler entrance while Miaa Vernon walked
thruugh the garden tu the pretty veranda, newly put up (but in excolient
taste and ..keeping, everybody said),
whioh -was intended to form a sort of
conservatory in a sunny corner, and
give the inhabitants a little more ele
gance and modern prettinesa than thu
other houses afforded. She had done
this on purpose for Mra. John, who
had got used, uo doubt, to foreign
ways, sitting out of doors, and indul-
Kncea of that kind. Could anything
re been more Kind? And yet, nt
the bottom of her heart, Miss Vernon
waa aware that if sho had resisted her
impulse to come and spy upon the poor
traveler thii first night, and invest!
gate bar feelings, and how she waa
supporting the change, and all the
recollections to be called forth by her
return, she would have been far mure
really kind. She felt this, yet she
•tine. What ie there iu the human
bosom more strong than.the desire to
aee how Um gladiators die? Poor Mrs.
John waa no gladiator, but ihe was
upon tht point of that sword of suffering which some writhe and struggle
upon, and: some allow themselves to
be wounded by in silence. Miss Vernon was very anxious to know how
she was bearing, it. The daylight,
which liad come to an end altogether
in the dark wainscoted rooms inside,
was still lingering without. Behind
the trees there was a golden clearness
upon the horizon, against which overy
branch stood nut. The stars were
only half visible iu the faint bine. The
walk i had been delightful, . It waa the
time she preferred tu -bo abroad, her
mind undisturbed by those cares which
pursue less peaceful people, yielding
itself up entirely to; the spell of universal tranquility and repose.
But when Miss Vernon, opening the
glass door of the veranda, suddenly
came in .sighMf a figure jvhieh waa
quite unexpected; which she could not
identify or recognize, sho was, for the
moment, too much startled to apeak.
A tall girl of fourteen, in that large
development which so many girls attain at that early age—to bo "fined
down" into slim grace and delicacy
afterward—with rather high shoulders,
increase^ by the simple form of her
dress; hair of a chestnut color, cut
short, and clustering in natural rings
and twists—not curled, in the ordinary
boiibo of the word; a complexion in
which white predominated, the creamy
whiteness of a sanguine temperament,
but with little of the rose; und two
large, eager, brown eyes, full of curiosity, full of life, evidently interrogating everything, coming out, oven ujjon
the twilight and the tears of departing
day, with her lighted candle and all-
questioning eyes. There ws| so muoh
warmth of life and movement about
Hester that it was difficult not to /eel
a certain interest in her; and there
was something wonderfully characteristic in her attitude, arrested, as she
stepped out, like an explorer, with her
caudle in her hand.
"I don't know you," said Oathorine
Vernon, who, from her general popularity and the worship administered to
her ull round, had, perhaps without
knowing it, acquired the familiar ease
of expression which belongs to kind
aud well-intentioned despots. The
tone of her voice, Hester thought,
who waa accustomed to that distinction, was as if she had said "tit." And
it depends a great deal upon circumstances whether it is affection ur insult
to tutoijer a stranger. "I don't know
you," she said, cuming in without any
invitation, and closing ttio glass door
behind her. "1 suppose you must
havo come with Mrs. John Vernon.
It is not possible," she cried, a momont
after, "that you are "the little girl?"
"I am all the girl there ia. I am
Hester; but I don't know you either,"
the girl said, determined not to show
any poltroonery or to veil her pretensions for any one. "Are you Cousin
Catherine?" she added, after a moment, with a quick-drawn breath.
"Yes, I ain Cousin Catherine. I
came to see how you have gut thruugh
your journey, and how your mother
ia. I suppose she is your mother? It
is quite aatunising to ine to see you
look almost like n grown-up young
woman, you, whom I have always
thought of as a little girl."
"I am fourteen," said Hester. "I
never waa very little since I can re*
member;" and they stood and luoked
at each other under the glass roof,
whioh still let in some light among
the flowers, their two faces lit up by
the Hame of the caudle. Heater stood
in front of tho dour which led into
the house, and, indeed, had something
tho aspect of a guardian of the house
preventing the visitor from, going in,
There was a sort of resemblance tu
each other in their faces and somewhat largely developed figures; but
this, which ought to have beeu a comfortable and soothing thought, did not
occur to either. And it cannot be denied that the first encounter waa hostile on both sides.
"I should liko to aee your mother;
to welcome her—home." .
"She lias gono to bod. Sho was
—tired," Hester suid; and then, with
an effort, "I do uot think it ia quite
happy for her, just the first night,
coming back to the placo she used to
live in.   I mode her go to bed."
"You take good care of her," said
Miss Vernon; "that is right. She always wanted taking care of." Then,
with a smile, she added, "Am I not
to go in? I camo to see if you were
comfortable and had everything you
want."
"Mother will be much obliged," said
HoBter, stiffly. She did not know any
better. She was not accustomed to
visitors, and was altogether at a loss
what to do—not to Bpeak of tho in*
Btinct of opposition which sprang up
in her mind to this first new actor in
the new lifo whieh lay vaguely existing and unknown before hor feet. It
seemed to her, she could scarcely tell
how, that here was an enemy, somo
ono to be held at arm's length. As
for Catherine Vernon, she was more
completely taken aback by this encounter than by anything which hod
happened for years. Fow poople opposed her or met her with suspicion,
much less hostility; and the aspect uf
this girl standing in tho doorway, defending it, ns it were, preventing her
from entering, wus half comic, half
exasperating. Keeping her out of
her own house! It waa one of the
drawbacks of her easy beneficence, the
defauts de set quaUtes, that ahe folt a
little too distinctly that it was her own
house, which, seeing she had given it
tq Mrs. John, was an ungouernsity in
the midst nf her generosity. But she
was human, like tho rest of tis. She
began to laugh, bewildered, half angry,
yet highly tickled with the position,
while Heater stood in front of her, regarding her curiously with those big
eyes. "I must rest here, if lam not
to go in," she said. "I hope you
won't object to that; for it ia as much
as X can do to walk from the Orange
here,"
Hester felt as if her lips were
sealed. She ouuld not say anything)
indeed, she did not know what she
ought to say. A vague sense tliat she
wns behaving badly made her uncomfortable; but sho was not going to submit, to yield to the first comer, to let
anybody entor who chose. Was she
nut the guardian of her mother, and
of her quiet and repose? She shifted
her position a little as Miss Vernon
sat down on one of the creaking basket chairs, but did not oven put her
candle out of her hand, or relax in
her defensive attitude. When her
visitor laughed again, Hester felt a
'•flush of hoVanger, like a flame, going
over her.   To be ludicrous is the last
thing a girl can bear: but even for
that she would not give in.
'You are a capital guardian," Catherine said, "but I assure you I am not
an enemy, I shall have to oall my
maid Jennings, who has gone .to the
kitchen to see Betsey, beforo I go
home, for I am dot fond qf walking
alone. You must try Mid learn that
we are all friends here. I supposo your
mother has told you,a great deal about
the Vernous—and me?"
