We are glad to observe that eastern   Canadian newspapers are beginning to wake np on tbe Chinese
question.    II  the debate On thii
subject whieh took place during last
seaafon of the Canadian parliament
produces no other effect than thia,
it will not have been by any means
fruitless.      If   the  press of   the
country once enters upon a vigorous
crusade  against  Chinamen, publio
opinion will tone the government
to adopt such legislation aa will regulate  and  abate  the evil.     The
Ottawa Free Press of the 3rd inst
aays:  "There is at present every indication that the bad fruits of Sir
John Macdonald's disallowance of
the British Columbia bill prohibiting Chinese immigration will before
long be experienced in this part of
the Dominion,   We are informed
by the telegraph that between three
and. four  thousand Chinese  have
already   applied for work on the
Canadian Pacific Railway, east of
the Rooky Mountains.    There are
at present many thousands of Chin,
ese in British Columbia.    Owing to
the Dominion government's unwise
interference   with  local legislation
many  thousands more will arrive
there.   When the work of railway
construction   in  that province ia
completed the bulk of these will
have to look elsewhere for work.
They will not be permitted to enter   the  United States, and they
will have no recourse but to come
to that portion of the Doiuinion east
of the Rocky Mountains.    When
that time, whieh is not far distant
arrives, wo  will   be  able to fully
appreciate the evils of Chinese im*
migration."   If the -Fn, Press.ni
other* journals in the east had exercised ordinary judgment, they would
long ago have foreseen this result.
While the evil was far away, and
confined to British Columbia, they
rested content; but the presence of
these celestials in Manitoba indicates the approach of the Asiatic
invasion, and has opened tho eyes of
Ontario to personal   danger;   and
now the newspapers begin to howll
In British Columbia we havo had
actual occular demonstration of the
evils of Chinese immigration these
' many years, but we have hitherto
been protesting in vain,   tbe eastern newspapers treated our affliction
as a joke, and even charged us with
communistic notions; and the house
of commons sheltered itself behind
the plea that olass legislation was
contrary  to the spirit of  British
institutions.    But self-preservation
is one of the first lawaof nature,
and acting under that Taw we demand that this fair province may be
preserved from the Chinese.   Other
British possessions have made similar demands; and their right to legislate on the question has been conceded by the imperial government
Is it possible that the government
at Ottawa has become leas liberal
than  the government at London 1
Sir John   Macdonald  vetoed  the
Chinese bills without consulting the
home government, and it is very
generally believed that but for this
action of the Canadian premier, the
bills   would  have   been  enforced.
However that may be, the.peeple
of British Columbia do not propose
that the veto shall turn them aside
from  the question.     It ia of too
much importance to ua aa a province,  for  unless   some restrictive
measures are adopted we shall very
soon be swallowed up completely by
these Asiatic invaders.   The Free
Press, concludes the article above
referred* td in the following words:
"People in the eastern portion of
the Dominion have long considered
the Chinese question as something
which did not concern them, but
the celestial army has already commenced its eastward march; and if
we are not to be subjected to the
horrors with which British Columbia ia now afflicted, prompt action
ahould be taken to restrict Chineso
immigration into Canada.    Under
the circumstances the disallowance
of the British Columbia legislation
on tbis subject cannot be condemned
in too strong terms."

A '-War-Turtle.'-
Boston is the home uf the reformer,
the anti-war man, the heretic, the
Puritan, the anchorite, the free-lover
and the inventor, and while the others
are busy with their theories, their arguments and their agitation, the inventor, bending incessantly aver his
plans and drawings, is putting the
finishing touches to a plan for the
building of a terrible man-killer, u land
monster to be used in time of war.
Up to this date nothing hu been written or printed about it, but the int.
venter, a well known builder of locomotives and the originator- of many
valuable and famous machines, has an
far developed hi. plans that be is will-
inn to speak of then, iu the general
way, while he hold. Heok fejthe present the secret detellrof manufacture.
To fully appreciate the invention one
roust imagine a huge, steel monster,
turtle-shaped, impregnable to the most
forcible missiles of artillery, creeping
over the face of the earth and raining
from the machine guns within it, showers of ballets and dynamite bomh.
.which work terrible havoc among the
ehCMy. The shell of this "war turtle,"
aa the inventor has christened it, is to.
be made of tool steel, thick, heavy and
massive, which no missive can penetrate, It will move on broad wheels,
shod with thick rubber bands, which
can take a strong hold oh the ground,
establishing so great a traction that
the turtle can climb steep hills, driven
by the enormous engine concealed
within its body. "Of course," says
the inventor, "the weight of the turtle,
whioh must carry ammunition, petroleum in tanks beneath the steel skin,
and men to man the guns and steer
the fighting craft, will be enormous;
but I have carefully studied nnd calculated and find that I can get enough
power from the engine to move with
sufficient rapidity and clesr away whatever obstacles; the enemy may erect to
stop the turtle's progress." The sharp,
knife-like edge of the monster will be
able to cut down small trees and
shrubbery and the terrible force of the
engine will be sufficient to o'limre it
through sub'tantial b irrieaoVa, Two
pilots, protected from shnrp sh-.utt'r*
and stray balls by heavy plates, wil.
have positions in the steel ho id of the
creeping battery and guide it bv a peculiar mechanical apparatus nnd thi-
Suns, pointing iu all directions, will
e able to disohnrge 0000 Indian minute. In the tail of the tunle, so to
apeak, will be placed a nmoliine enable of hurling 20 dynamite bombs a
minute, throwing them so far thnt the
turtle will be nut of range when they
explode. The inventor, who is no
Darius Green with his tlylng-maohiiiu,
but is known asaelear, level headed
man, says that of course the tunle
with his guns and dynamito will keen,
impracticable tn the uveraaeeiigineei
alio mechanic*, but he insi.ts t at In-
can build it'and work it suouessfully
whenever tho government shall have
need of suoh a terrible weapon and
death-dealer. Until that time pwhably
the essential detail of manufacture will
be kept secret from all save a few intimate scientific friends who are inter-
ested in the development of the
scheme. The inventor, whoso name
cannot be given at present, was led to
conceive of his fighting turtle after
noticing that, while the most important changes in naval warfare had been
made during recent yean, the notable
improvements iii land fighting were few
and far between. Shuuld the United
State, go to war with Germany or Eng
land, he says the "turtle" will do for
the land force what Kricsou'a "cheese
box" did lor the fighters by sea and
river.—Boston Letter.

Carious Bible Facts.
The learned Prince of Granada, heir
to the Spanish throne, imprisoned by
order of the crown, for fear he should
aspire to tho throne, waa kept in solitary confinement in the old prison at
the Placo of Skulls, Madrid. After
thirty-three years iu thia living tomb,
death came to hia release, and the following remarkablo researches, taken
from the Bible, and marked with an
old nail on the rough walla of his cell,
told how the brain sought employment
through the weary years.
In the Bible the word "Lord" is
found 1863 times; the word "Jehovah"
6865 times, and the word "reverend''
but once and that in the Bth verse of
the 110th Psalm.
The 8th verse of the 117th Psalm
is the middle verse of the Bible.
The Oth verse of the 8th chapter of
Esther is the longest vorso; 36th verse,
11th chap, of St. John, the shortest.
In the 107th Psalm 4 verses aro
aliae, the 8th, 16th, 21st, and 31st.
Each verse of the 135th PSillm ends
alike.
No names or words with more than
sis syllables are found in the Bible.
The 37th chap, ot Isaiah and 10th
chap, of Snd Kings are alike.
The word "gist occurs but once iu
the Bible, 3rd verse and 3rd chap, of
Joel. .
There are found in hoth hooks of
the Bible, 3,68(1,483 letters, 773,003
words, 31,373 verses, 1,180 chapters,
and 68 books.
The 28th chapter of the Acts of the
Apostles is the Bnest chapter to mad.
The moat beautiful chapter in the
Bible is tho 22ud Psalm.
The four most inspiring promises
are John Uth chap., 2nd verse; John
Oth chap., 37th verse; St. Matthew
11th chap., 28th verse; and 37th
Psalm, 4th verse.
The 1st verse of the 00th chap, of
Isaiah is the one for the new convert,
All who flatter themselves with vain
boastings of their perfectnets should
learn the Oth ohap. of Matthew.
All humanity should learn the Oth
chap, of St. Luke from the 20th verse
to its ending.

The Mall Service.
It ia generally supposed that the
■nail service is established and maintained for public accommodation.
The general character of that ser-
viol iu this country, however, has
scarcely beeu iu that direction. It
bu been a constant source of complaint and annoyance; nnd although
in some respects tbo facilities of
mail communication have improved
within the past few years, there ara
many grievances still remaining.
Nnt long ago it was announced that
a proposal had been made to withdraw two of tho four mails a week
between this city and the upper
country, and to substitute, in lieu
of that service, a daily mail to Viotoria. The proposal was considered
by the Board of Trade, whioh refused to recommend it, because it
wonld be depriving the upper country of mail facilities whioh were considered important The people of
tbis city regard the daily mail service as a great accommodation; but
they are not willing for the sake of
personal advantage, to curtail the
mail facilities of the rest of the
mainland. But it seems the acting
post-office inspector paid no attention whatever to the action of the
Board of Trade. Two mails a week
were withdrawn from the river service, and a daily service was established to Victoria. Not long ago
tenders woro asked for a daily mail
between this city and Port Moody.
According to theadvertisement,mails
were to leavo this city every morning at 7:30, and arrive at Port
Moody one hour later. Returning,
they were to leave Port Moody at
4 p. in., and arrive here ut 5. Now,
every one acquainted with tbe:cir-.
cnmstanees knows that the person
who undertook the service on such
specifications would be working at
a great disadvantage. The stages
leave for Port Moody and Granville at 9 a. in. A stage which had
to leave with the mail at 7:30 would
rarely havo anything but the mail
to carry. It is too early for pas-
aongcrs, who would generally prefer
to wait for the 9-o'clock stage. Again,
unless the road happens to be in
the very best condition it would not
be possible for n heavy stage to
make the trip in one hour; and to
return in an hour, going up the
steep grade at Port Moody, would
be almost impossible under any circumstances, Beside;!, during the
winter, when the roads are worst,
the stage would have to leave this
oity beforo daylight in tho morning,
and wonld not be ublo to return
till after dark. When the inspector visited this city some time ago
the absurdity of the specifications
wan pointed out to hiin. lie stated
that tho department would not in-
sist upon the service being performed according to the advortised
schedule — that people tendering
would be allowed to vary according
to circumstances. But when the
blank forms of tender camo up it
was found that they contained a
declaration that the contract would
lie on the basis stated in the advertisement. There wu no mention
whatever of deviation from the
schedule. The result is that some
intending contractors refused to ten
der, and if any person takes the
contract at all he places himself at
tbe mercy of tho inspector. There
has also been a longstanding grievance in connection with the location
of the Port Moody postoliice. It
stands nearly two miles distant
from that portion of the townsito
wliere the settlement is, and
spite of petitions and protests it
stands there still. With respect to
the post-office in this oity there are
many complaints, und ns soon as one
grievance disappears another seems
to present itself. When we had
two mails a week the post-office
wu kept open for mail matter
until 9 o'clock on steamer nights.
Now we hnve a daily mail, bnt the
office doses at 6 p. tn. and does not
open till 9 a. m. The result of this
arrangement is that persons employed in manufacturing establishments, or elsewhere, have no opportunity for getting letters at the
poet-office. It does not open until
after they have gone to work in the
morning, and it closes beforo their
day's work is done at night. We
are not placing tho fault upon tho
postmuter, but merely mentioning
the facta in the hope that a remedy
may ke found by the proper officers.
Tlie postoffice should not clow before 7 o'olock at night, when other
_____________________
business places close, and then
every person oould receive the accommodation which . the post-office is
supposed to provide, There have
been a great many complaints made
about the present arrangement, nnd
they are not without reason.
Tlie Judgment.
On Wednesday it wu announced
by a telegram from Victoria to The
Columbia!- that the police magistrate had dismissed the gambling
eases on Ihe ground that thb play
was not actually going on at tho
time of the arrest. In tho Victoria
papers of Wednesday I wo find further particulars of this singular case.
There wero six gamblers arrested, of
whom one was the dealer. At the
time tbe police entered the premises the dealer was in the act of
dealing out tho cards; but, of course,
operations were ut once suspended.
The dealer was first tried before tbe
police magistrate, and he was acquitted on the ground that ns the dealer
in this game is prohibited from
playing, a charge of gambling could
net lie against him. In the next
case, that of Cooper, the magistrate
makes the following points: (1) The
dealer was in the act of dealing at
the time (of the raid); (2) The
would-be players were waiting for
cards with which to play; (3) They
had not received the requisite number of cards; (4) Consequently no
playing was going on at the time
the officers entered. Now, every
unprejudiced person, not learned in
the law, will doubtless experience a
great deal of astonishment at this conclusion. When the officers entered
the saloon these men were undoubtedly engaged in a game of cards.
They were sitting round a table
with cards lying before them, and
the dealer was dealing out more
cards to complete the required number. In the table drawer there wu
money and all the implements necessary for gambling. The table and
the whole arrangements were shown
by witnesses to be just what aro
commonly found in the gambling
game known ns stud.horse poker.
The policemen arrested these people, captured their table, cards,
money, and other implements, and
produced them in court But tho
learned magistrate finds that because,
tho police did not actually see these
men in tho act of playing, thero
could bo no easel Tbis may be
good law, but it seems to us the
most absolute nonsense. Does the
magistrate for one moment imagine
that when the police officers entered
the room tliese men would continue
to play on and give thomselves
away! If they had continued the
game under such circumstances, that
fact would lead one to suspect they
were engaged in a lawful act But
thoy stopped at once. They knew
perfectly thnt they were gambling
and had beon caught. If the decision of the magistrate is a proper
decision, it follows that it would bo
perfectly impossible to convict any
person of gambling without resorting to the objectionable oxpedient of
employing an informer. No matter
how often the police might raid the
gambling places. The money might
be there for stakes; the cards might
be thero in the hands of gamblers;
the dealer might be there: but if
the players happened to stop, as
they certainly would, on the appearance of the officers, there could be
no gambling proved 1 Does any person imagine. that the law ever contemplated such a thing u this? We
think not; and we think tbat every
person who has read the evidenco
produced in this case must be perfectly satisfied that it was a clear
caso of gambling. A man half
drunk is found sitting with a glnsf
in his hand at a table upon which
there stands half a bottle of whiskey. A policeman enters and arrests him for drinking. But the
magistrate asks, "Did you see him
drinking'" "No," replies tho policeman, "I didn't see him drinking;
but 1 know there wu liquor in him
and liquor on the table beforo him,
and from the circumstances I am
perfectly satisfied he was drinking."
"Ah!" says the magistrate, "but you
must see him do it: the case is dis
missed." In these gambling cases
the magistrate said he had no desire
to screen the offenders. If the
point raised had been a technical
one, he said, he might have passed
it over; but the point seemed to
him vital, and he had no alternative
but to dismiss the case. We do not
pretend to question tbo honesty qf
tho magistrate; but with all respect
to bis judgment we must admit that
the ground of dismissal strikes us
as being puroly technical. To say
that the dealer could not be playing
because he was dealing is a mockery; and to say that the rest could
not bo playing because the caids had
not nil been dealt, is to insult com.
mon sense. Blow could stud-horse
pokor be played without a dealer?
He is us necessary to tho game as
any of. the  five who take their
hand, end to exempt him on such a
ground is pushing technicalities to
the verge of absurdity. We cannot
congratulate either the city council
or the police magistrate of Victoria
on the conduct and result of these
eases. Thoy all profess great anxiety to put down gambling, but tlieir
wholo action in this matter boars a
very different appearance. They
may hnve been honest in their intentions, but wo ask them in all
candor what they could havo done
more than they did to prevent a conviction in these now celebrated
gambling cases!

Cceur d'Alene Mines.
The genera] formation of the Cotmr
d'Alene country is slate; not the laminated slate in thin strata with which
miners are generally conversant, but
the more permanent formation which
exists in solid slabs, broken by fissures
and crevices. Through a canyon in
suoh a formation Pritchard oreek tlows.
The bed of the creek varies from
twenty to eighty rods in width.. The
diggings have been represented as
venr deep, but ns a matter of fact bedrock hns been tapped at a depth of six
feet In every instance where drain
diktat hava been cut. This is an
important fact which will prove of
immense value to the camp and which
will do much to enlist capital to aid in
the development of the placer fields
when it boooroet general!? known. In
several of the opened claims bedrock
is found at four feet, and even less.
The gravel is of the "dead" variety,
very loose and coarse, but carries fine
color from the water level to the bedrock. The bulk of the gold is, of
coune, found on and in the fissures
of tbe bedrock. The character of the
gold is water-worn shot gold, the larger nuggets generally carrying more or
less quartz and assaying $16,75 fine to
the ounce. With a uniform system
•if drain ditching on the several claims
hydraulic power can be successfully
and economically employed. The
w-rk already done and the prospects
obtained on several claims have demonstrated the fact thnt Pritchard creek
will pay to work for its entire length.
Many of the side gulches nf Pritchard
creek are undeniably rich. So much
w'-rk has been done prospecting on tbe
different claims that the status of the
placer mines ns gold-producers is an
assured fact.— Goeur d Ahne Eagle.
About Judges.—Since the temporary retirement of Judge McCreight,
on account of ill-health, the people uf
this city and district have been put to
very great inconvenience. There were
four other judges in Victoria, with,
apparently, not it great deal of vork
on hand, and it was supposed thai one
of them would - be sent to this city to
supply Judge McCreight's place. Yesterday Judges Gray and Walkem came
up, and some people thought one of
these gentlemen would remain, at least
for a short time. We learn, however,
that they are both going up country.
Judge Gray takes the assize court at
Vale, and Judge Walkem takes the
court at Kamloops, Bui the court sit-t
at Yale on the 19th, and at Kamloops
on the 30th, and oue naturally wonders if it would not be possible for one
judge lo take both. Indeed, looking
at the dates arranged for courts in the
interior one can scarcely fail to notice
that the provinoial government pur*
posely intended thai one ju-ige should
do the work. But the provincial government dues not control the judges,
and they seem perfectly free to go
where they please. There is tin re-isoft
tn the world why one of these gentle
men should not take the courts nt Yale
and Kamloops and Clinton, and thu
other remain at this city. This would
not only greatly facilitate business,
hut would also save a great deal of unnecessary expense to the Dominion
government.
Kailway Accidents.
From tbo Yale Sentinel.
Middle of last week the "Pony ou-
gine" ran against a stone down t ,e
track, and had to be brought to the
machine shop here fur repairs. This
littlo "Curlit*," so-called engine, is
often in hand to bo put in running
order. It is called an old trap. Sat
urday tho mail train was late iu consequence of another slide at Maple
Ridge; it tuok four hours to clear the
track. Monday at 1:30 p. in., the
"Yale" engine, engineer Campbell
Johnston, conductor Joe McKenzie,
and fireman Geo, McCulIuugh, left
Emory, and while their tram was going
through No. 2 tunnel, near Hopo, met
the engine "Lytton," drawing a gravel
train, and a collision took place. The
parties with the "Lytton" were engineer Ed. Hosker, conductor N. Spriggs,
and fireman Robt. Ward. As the engines approached under considerable
speed, and after whistling down brakes
—the thought no doubt simultaneously
occurred—they jumped off. And the
men named acted wisely under the
circumstances, and we arc pleased to
announce escaped without serious injury; the only person feeling the effect
of the meeting of the trains was
Johnny Maddigan, a brakesman, who
was upon- the last car at his post of
duty trying to check the speed, and
the collision knocked him down. We
believe his injury is not serious.
Where rumor says the blame properly
belongs we are nut disponed to chronicle, in advance of an investigation; in
all auch cases contradictory statements
are generally put in circulation. One,
thing is certain, there was criminal
neglect somewhere, Men were promptly sot to work to clear the track ns
soon as possible, and the down mail
train, engine "Savona," was ablo to'
pass through the tunnel on Tuesday;
in the afternoon, 19th inst., the "Lytton" was so far fixed up as to ho able
to bring up lhe "Yale," etc., to the
machine shop. As the two engines
with a flat car containing portions of j
the wreck passed, the damage appeared I
to be pretty serious; we understand
the amount has beer, estimated at between 05,000 and 00,000. Out of five
locomotive engines belonging to the
railway company three art now out of

Scotch Gathering.
Editor Columbian.—Will you permit
ine through the columns of yonr paper to
call the attention of my countrymen to
the fact that for three years we have had
no Scotch gathering on the mainland of
Briti h Columbia. In times past I used
to think that to be a Scotchman was almost synonymous with being an honest
man, and I felt some pride in claiming
old Scotland as my place of. nativity.
Now and here, one would think that we
are a nation of rascals and ashamed of
one another. Adam Inxbs and George

Was It Perjurj ?
Editor Columbian.—I see in your
issue ot the 10th inst. you have published
tho evidence for the prosecution iu the
case of Begins vs, McKenzie & McKee.
Such a course on your part I consider
very unfair; firstly, because it was very
untrue, and secondly, even hsd the declarations beeu properly made there
would have been no such a thing as perjury in the case, as the improvements
called for in the land act were made to
the full extent required, and moro than
required; also the land haa been in occupation by Mr. McKenzie's agent ever
since he first took it up. I was indeed
very muoh surprised to see the Columbian publish the evidence of a man bearing such a character when the defendants were not beard. As for my brother
and myself, we have lived in this district
for upwards of ten years, and I will defy
any man to attach (truthfully) dishonor
to our name, John MoKee, Jr.
' Pioneer   Temperance  Lecturer."
Editor Columbian.—I see, by the
Victoria Colonist, thai a certain Dr, Stevenson claims to have beeu tbe first
temperance lecturer in British Columbia.
Whether or not he was the fint professional lecturer, I cannot positively say,
though I u.ver heard of his being that.
This I can say, that on May 25th, 1869,
the late Rev. E. White held a temperance meeting in the treasury building,
Queenborongh (New Westminster) and
lectured on that question.   Several other
gentlemen participated in the exercises.
In August 1st, I860,1 called a temuer-
ance meeting in Nanaimo, at which Mr.
White lectured, and quite a number
signed the pledge. On July 18th, 18r.it,
I assisted, as a charter member, in organising the Victoria Division, Sons of
Temperance, in Victoria city, the late
J. T. Pidwell, Esq., acting as D.M.W.P.
On the 19th October, lm, I took part
in a temperance meeting at Fort Hope,
at which it was decided ta form a division of the Sons of Temperance. The
division was organized tlie next week
and met in my school room while I remained at Hope. There was a good deal
of temperance work done in Biitish Columbia before that lecture was delivered
by Dr. Stevenson, in 18(12.—Yours, Ac.,

NEWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORLD.
London, May 12.—In tho commons
to-day George Anderson (advanced liberal) gave notice that he should shortly
make a motion condemning the existence
of a house of lords. The announcement
was received with great hilarity. Sir
Michael Hicks Beach, conservative,
moved again his motion of May second,
that, the house regrets the courso taken
by the government which has not tended
to promote the nuccess of General Gordon a mission; aud that steps to secure
bin personal safety lmvo been delayed.
Tliis motion was received with prolonged cheers, Gladstone, in rising to
speak in defense of the government's
course, was greeted with hearty cheers.
He congratulated Sir Michael Hicks
Beach on his forcible speech, but strenuously denied that the government had
deserted Gen, Gordon, The demand of
the honorable gentleman, he insisted!
amounted to a war of conquest against a
people straggling to be tree, (Cheers
from the liberals). The war which the
Mahdi is waging is a war of freedom.
It is that which the hon. gentleman
wishes England to put down. (Renewed
cheers). Continuing, the prime minister
denied that the government had failed
to do one single thing tbat was not for
the safety and success of Gen. Gordon.
The charges which the honorable gentleman has just preferred against tbe government are absurd. They ami only be
accounted for by his lack of knowledge
of true facta and real object Whatever
may oa Its ostensible aun its effort Is to
displace the government, (loud cheers
from liberals). Gladstone next referred
to official dispatches to provo Geu. Gordon's security and to justify the action
of tho government which it bad taken,
he contended, without precaution. The
charges failed because it waa not a fact
that Gen. Gordon had orders to resort to
military force if peaceful measures should
n t prove sufficient. "I have a duty"
Gladstone further said, "to General Gordon, and a duty to tbe country to perform. Both will be performed despite
the honorable gentleman or cliiratic danger and difficulty It may be the duty
of the government to plant a British
force in that terrible country; but the
government declines to be driven on
without considering blood, honor and
ticasure. The government also declines
to enter upon that scheme of conquest to
please tho captious opposition." (Cheers,)

The Hovers' Pass.
Dr. Grant In tho Week.
From the summit of tho Selkirks-
down the western slope—to the Columbia, the distance is about forty-five
miles; and, in the first week in September, a trail had been cut only
about half way. Sunn after starting
from the summit, wo came upon the
Ille-cille-waut, sometimes called Mu-
berly Creek, und followed it pretty
closely nll the way down, except in the
Inst threo or four miles of its courso,
Wo found ourselves in tho heart of
the uudittturbed forest primeval, und
among slate mountains intersected by
quartz veins tempting to prospector?.
Thu cedars, hemlocks, spruce nnd
wliite pine are all on the largest scale.
Beforo reaching a point where the
river is said tu "fork," ur whew a
large branch enters tho main stream
from thu north, we camo upon the
most jiotfcct box canyon wo hud yot
seen. Tlm river boila between walls of
naked rock, two hundred foet high,
the distance from wall to wall at une
point being nut more than twenty
feet, A mile or two below tbis canyon, tho trail—to our sorrow—ended.
Horo, at McMillan's camp, whoso mon
were busy surveying aud trail making,
wc were to pnrt with Major Rogers
and with oat hones, and foot it ns
bust we could to tbe Columbia, whero
wu hoped tu effect a junction with
Indian*- from Kamloops.
Ou the way down from the summit
to McMillan's camp, I had many long
talks with the Major about the steps
taken by him to discover tho pass,
Tho information obtained then, and
confirmed subsequently, in nil requisite points, by official documents, I
may give in the form of u historical
sketch: From the time that British
Columbia was formed into a oolony,
its publio mon looked forward to
being connected, by wagon road aud
then by railroad, with tho other British colonies in North America. Thsy
wen thoroughly loyal, and had no
idea of remaining in tho condition of
a thumb separated from tho body any
longer than they could help. Discoveries of gold at the Big Bend of
the Columbia attracted a mining population m 1864 to that remote district,
and it became important to connect
these with the settled parts of the
province. Miners aro a profitable
community to deal with, and the
British Columbians were unwilling
that the Colville merchants, south of
the boundary line, Bhould monopolise
the trade of what were expected to
turn out rich gold fields. From Kamloops, steamers could run up the South
Thompson River and Shuswnp Lake;
and from a point on the lake called
Seymour, Mr. W. Muberly constructed
a trail through thu Gold Mountains to
the Big Bend; and in 1865, he discovered a direct pass from Shuswap Lake
to the Coiumbin. Mr, Trutch, in a
Report uf the Land and Works Department, datod 29th October, 1866, speaks
of this pass and of his hopes in connection with it, in what has turned
out fo bu prophetic language: "It was
not only unknown to wliite men but so
far aa can be ascertained, neither the
Shuswap nor the Columbia river Indians had any knowledge uf it previous
to Mr. Muberly'»reconaissance	
Tho Gold Rango was supposed to be I
an unbroken and impassable wall of
mountains. The summit of thia pass,
now known as Eagle Pass, is only four
hundred and seven feet above the level
of Shuswap .Lake, whioh lako is one
hundred and twenty-seven feet lower
than, thn Columbia River at low water
majkattue mouth of the pass—the
distance through being thirty-two
miles. For some distances near its
summit, this pass is walled in on each
side by abrupt cliffs und is not therefore available for the construction of a
cheap trail; but for a wagon road or
railroad it is moat applicable, and its,
discovery may be regarded as of great
value, for by this pass, it may be confidently hoped will one day be brought
a line of communication, by wagon
road first, and afterwards by railroad,
from the British possessions on the
Saskatchewan across the Rocky Mountains into the central portions of British Columbia, and down the valley of
the Fraser River to the sea."
The Eagle Pass through the Gold
Range having been discovered, Mr.
Mohcrly was naturally anxious to find
a pass across the Selkirks also. He
was sure that quartz mining in the '■
Big Bend would be moat extensive,
Hi'mgli it would tako time to develop
the mines, as the extremely difficult
nature uf the country mode it impossible for prospectors to move about
without trails, Those quartz veins to
which he alluded in his reports are
still awaiting a railway through the
Huckius before they can be developed.
That there was a pass through tho Selkirks hu had little doubt. On coining
throuuh tho Gold Mountains to the
Columbia, a cleavage through the Selkirks can he seen almost as if it were
a continuation of the Eagle Pass,
Through this cleft tho Ille-cille-waut
runs into tho Columbia, and it was
obvious that by it a pass should he
sought. He sent one of his engineers
to ascertain if anything favorable could
be found, hut his report was discouraging. He himself.then took the matter iu hand. Proceeding up the Ille-
cille-waut to its forks, and rightly
judging tliat the pastern branch of the
rivor was the one to follow to its
source, he tried hard to induce his
Indians to accompany him up it and
all thu way across the range. But, as
he reported, "all my efforts were unavailing, as thuy affirmed that if we
went on ae should be caught in the
snow and never get out uf the mountains. As I uow found it would not
be possible to complete the exploration
of the easterly branch so as to arrive
at a definite conclusion, and as a
partial exploration would only be a
waste of timo and money, for should it
be explored throughout, at any future
time, which I would recommend, the
same ground would have to be traversed again, I decided to explore the
northerly fork. At a distance of
about four miles abovo the forks I
entered the slato range, and continued
in it the rest of the distaqce travelled
up tho stream. These slato mountains
are intersected in nil directions by innumerable veins of quartz, and on the
river banks and bars much hard blue
gravel, intermixed with clay, was
seen." Ho washed a few pans of dirt
and obtained prospects pronounced to
be five cents to the pan. Noticing
traces of silver in a vein of quartz, he
knocked oil' a few pieces of rock, and
the Government Assay Office reported
tho mineral tu be argentiferous galena,
with 84 uz, of silver tu the ton. Finding thnt the valley turned more nnd
inure to the north, and that nothing
could be gained by a longer continuance in the Selkirks that year, he retraced his steps and reached Shuswap
Lake on the 10th of October.
Soon after theae explorations, the
Big Bend having proved disappointing
to the miners who had flocked to them
without proper equipment, the necessity for further examination of the
Solkirks by the British Columbia gov
eminent ceased. Tho colony had no
money to spend on surveys tlmt did
not promise an im mediate return, nnd
Mr. Moberly had thus uo opportunity
of discovering tho put" in tho i-.xi-.t-
once of which hu tolly believed. That
honor whs reserved fur our friend the
Major,
When the Syndicate decided to get
n mure direct route tu the Pacific than
that- which thu Yellow Head Pass
ottered, it became all important to
know whwihcr thu Selkirks could be
crussod or not. Major lingers, who
was appointed Engineer of the Mountain Division in February, 1881, was
instructed to settle the point. Studying the Reports, hu saw that hu had
only to take up the examination uf the
mountains whoro Muberly had been
obliged to loavo off. In April, he left
Victorin, 11. C, for Kamloops, nnd obtaining ton Shuswap Indiana from the
mission thure, he detorminud tu push
through the Eagle Pass, cross the Selkirks somehow, and reach tlm mouth
uf tho Kicking Horso; for, from the
first hu had como to tho conclusion
that the Kicking Horse was the natural
pass down the western slope of the.
Roi'ku-h. Ho failed in this first effort.
He forced his way indeed through the
Eagle Pass, and succeeded in getting
up the eastern branch of tho Ilte-cclte-
Wrtiii, into the heart of the Solkirks,
and on May 39th climbed a mountain
near Syndicate Peak and saw that
there, was nn opening down thu other
side nf the range, ami "biiow clad desolation" everywhere else. But provisions wero running short, nud it was
impossible to advance farther. Turning back to tho Columbia, ho dismissed
his Shuswaps, and rafted down the
river to Fort   Colville.   From   that
(mint he got round to the Vermilion
•ass, and on July 10th ho met on the
Bow near Pndmore's his Kooky Mountain parties, Tho rest of that season
wns spent iu exploring everything
bearing tho name of n pass in the main
range—the Kananaskis, Vermilion,
White Man's, Kicking Hone and
Howse.   In May, 1888, ha made ano
ther attempt to find a pass through the
Selkirks,' beginning this' time from the
eastern side. Starting from the mouth
of the Kicking Horse with a small
party he struggled up tho south bank
of the Beaver till he reached a point
where he saw Bear Creek joining it,
and coming evidently from the right
direction. The Beaver waa in flood.
He tried to cross that he might follow
up Bear Creek; but though he felled
trees on its bank by the dozen, they
either broke as they fell or they wero
too short and the current swept them
away. Failing in his attempts, and
provisions running short, he pushed
southerly along the Beaver, and then
struck across the divide into the valley
of the Spill-a-macheen. and got back
to the Kicking Horse Cache on June
16th. The mon .with him hod kept
his birthday by sweetening their tea;
but tea and everything else as well as
sugar were exhausted before they
reached the Cache, and had they not
found a canoe that, enabled them to
cross the Columbia it would have gone
hard with them. A month later, he
started on a third effort to discover the
Pass, taking with him Carroll and D.
Bellhouse as assistants, and three Indians, Louis, Charlie Mountain and
Pete. Every man carried his pack,
ana the brush was so dense that thoy
travelled only from two to four miles a
day. olt rained almost every day, and
when it did not rain the black flies,
mosquitoes and sandflies made it hot
for them. Cutting their way up the
north bank of the Beaver they crossed
Mountain Creek and Bear Creek, and
discovered the Pass on July 24th. But
the Major was not satisfied. Every
spot had to be explored. There might
be a connection between the head-
waters of tho 'North Fork of the Ille-
celle-waut and of Bear or Mountain
Creek; so, sending Bellhouse and an
Indian back to a point where he had
cached some provisions, and instructing them to push up Mountain Creek,
he and the rest went down the Ilie-
celle-waut to the Forks, and then
pushed up the North Fork. "Each
day," said Carroll, "was a repetition
of its predecessor, with this exception,
that our packs were becoming lighter,
and we were able to make better time.
Finding that there was no prospect of
a Pass by the North Fork, we con-'
eluded to cross from where we were,
and try and strike Mountain Oreek. It
tuok us a whole day to climb from the
valley to snow-line, about 7-500 feet
high, where we camped, melting snow
to make our toa. A high wind wu
blowing, Our clothing was wet. Our
blanket—for the Major and I had only
one between us—was wet also. We
could not get enough wood to make a
big fire. Our supper had been limited
as there was little grub left. Altogether, it was a night to be remembered. The next duy we crossed the
main divide, but tor some time could
not find any water running in the direction of Mountain Greek. At last
we struck it, and also a good Cariboo
trail which followed the stream about
sixteen miles and proved invaluable to
us in our almost famished state. At
one place near the trail we saw eleven
large cariboo, quite tame, but we had
no gun Soon after, we met Bellhouse.
and we then made for the Kicking
Horse cache. Two of our Indians
were worn out, and one of them has
nut been able to do much since. Major Rogers suffered severely from
mosquitoes and black files. His forehead and ears swelled so, that they
shook as he walked; and he declared
that they felt just like a piece of liver."
This sketch is sufficient to show how
important wero Mr. Muberly's contributions to a Canadian Pacifio Railway,
and how much credit he is entitled to
in connection with tbe discovery of
the Selkirk Pass, It may also enable
even casual readers to understand
somewhat of the phenomenal energy
and pluck of Major Rogers. Not one
engineer in a hundred would have
risked, again and again, health and
fife as he did. Certainly he deserved
success. Few can understand the
difficulties that have to be encountered,
where everything has to he transported
on men's backs, and where—what with
torrents, precipices and inhospitable
mountains, densest underbrush and
incessant rain—only a snail-Iiko progress can bo made. The Selkirk system consists of several parallel ranges,
which send out transverse spurs en*
closing deep valleys; and it ia simply
wonderful that among suoh a sea of
interlaced mountains so good a Past as
the Rogers' should have boen discovered. It deserves to be known for all
time by the name of its discoverer,
and on the same principle I would
suggest that the Pass through the
Gold Range should be called after
Moberly, instead of oy the meaningless title of the "Eagle Pass."
It may be asked how it wai that the
Indians did not know of the existence
of the Rogers' Pass. The explanation,
is that tha Iudian travels either on
horseback or in a canoe. He would
rather go a hundred miles round tht
difficulties that huge fallen trees and
dense underbrush present than out his
way through a mile or two with an
axe; and tho valleys of the Beaver
and tho Ille-cille-waut wero chokttd
with obstructions that he considered
insurmountable.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Concluded.)
He looked at me anxiously a ino-
ment, and then went away, and I hid
my face in my hands, but I could not
think. I could see nothing but a little boat rooking on a golden sea, and
Xeith in it—Keith who had come
home to England and me.
Presently I becamo aware that the
chair beside me was taken, and thon
lorne one was drawing the hands away
from my face with a gentle force that
would not be denied.
"Nellie, I want to seo you. I have
not looked at you yet!"
Oh, the ring of those brave Scottish
tones, that I thought I was never to
hear again! Oh, the touch of that
strong faithful hand!
I looked up at Keith; and thon, I
don't know how it happened, but
Keith waa holding mo to his heart,
aud I felt like a tired bird that had
found ite nest, and was at rest and
content—that was never to vendor
again—never, oh, never!
"I have found you, my Itaohel; I
have you here! ana Jacob's long term
iB over—my own, my very own!"
"Do you want me, Keith!"
"I have served for you for more
than ten yean now, and, liko Jacob's,
'they were as nothing to tho love I
bore.' Look up in my face, my darling bird, and tell me what you soo
thon!"
"It looks tender and true, Keith.
Ob, Keith, what hare I done, that
you should love me so""
And aa the involuntary exclamation
escaped my lips, low words of blessing
seemed to hovor over me, and fold mo
with ineftable peace.
"Hare I come back to my wife,
Nellie? Dear love, I have wooed you
so long and patiently. I havo suffered
and labored in your behalf."
"I know it, Keith; I know it "
'"What aro you saying, doar? I
cannot hear you."
"I will be what you wish."
And then he kissed me again. And
after that we grew calmer; and he
talked to me, and I listened till Katio
came in, and then Dudley, aud then
we all went back to the drawing-room.
What a long delicious dream that-
evening seems, looking back on it now;
with such a sense of being tenderly
shielded and watched over, with such
a feeling of indescribable repose; and
then, when it was over, the moonlight
walk to Sunnyside, wrapped up in
Keith's plaid, with his strong arm to
lean upon; and to know, oh, happy
Nellie, to know that it was mine to
lean upon forover!
And then, the circle round the
blazing fire; Herwald's merry jests,
and Louie's fond caresses, and Katie'a
bright sparkling face looking up from
the rug at her husband's feet; and last,
but not least, Dudley's proud glance
of triumph as he sat with Eloanor beside him, looking at Keith and me.
"Nellie, do you think now you did
well to trust me with your future?"
Keith w,tched me, smiling.
"I don't understand you, dear;" but
getting hot, as I replied, nevertheless.
Dudley left hia place and bent over
me.
"What should you say, my pet, if
you knew that your brothers, feeling
how lonely you were, and how well
somebody lovod you, wrote a long
letter to that somebody, bidding him
cross the sea that had too long divided
you aud him, and take Sunnyside and
Ids wife together?
"And what ahould you aay, my
pet," us 1 hid my face so gratefully,
oh, so gratefully, on his shoulder; "if
Bruce added a postcript, bidding him
leave the business that had ao ill kept
him from poverty, and take the young,
er brother's share at tho factory, which
my marriage would leave vacant?
"And what would you aay if that
somebody started the very next week,
and arrived just as wo were sotting
out for the parsonage?—no, you ahall
not thank 'us, child; are you r.ot our
very owu?"
"Hush!" cried Keith, drawing me
to him, "what is that?"
And then, as we wero nil silent, the
, pealing of tho Christmas-chimes broke
ou our car.
"Peace on earth, good-will towards
men—a happy Christmas to you all,
my friends?"
"Amen," said Dudley, solemnly,
"and a brighter and a better life to
yon hoth at Sunnyside."
Chinese Women Smuggled.
Tho Portland -Vein says that a short
time ago eleven Chineae women were
taken across the border from British
Columbia, and were afterwards taken
into custody by the U.*. authorities.
Evidence was ut hand to prove that
these human chattels had been smuggled into tho country, contrary to the
restriction act, and it is now asked
what has become of them, and why
they were not sent back from whence
they illegally came? The fact of theso
women being worth 91,000 apieco in
tho slave marts of Portland and San
Francisco should net be allowed to be
a means of .defeating the ends of justice, and it is a well known fact that
they are now at large.
It is reported from the other aide
that a new sohemo haa been adopted
by the Chinese to ovade the law prohibiting the importation of females of
that race. A Chinaman wishing to
import a woman of that description
from Victoria takes out a license and
becomes legally married to her, and
after crossing to the American aide
disposes of her to the highest bidder
or consigns her to a regular dealer in
suoh stock. This scheme is said to
work very satisfactorily tor tho Celestials, as under the provisions of tho
restriction Inw the wife of a Ohinamnn
living in the States has the right of
free egress to the country.

Preferred Marriage to Law.
A Portland, He., dispatch to tho
Boston Globe says: A young Portland
man who is about aa innocent as a
dove, though hardly so wiso aa a serpent, is uid to have been ensnared
into matrimony by a device which has
the charm of novelty. He iB a handsome fellow, and earns good wages at
hia trade, and is, of courso, a favorite
with the fair aex. One of his young
lady friends, who has alwaya shown an
especial fondness for him, asked hiin
Soint blank in tbe course of a recent
unday evening tete-a-tete:
"Who are you going to ninny ?"
"You," he said Jokingly.
"Biaily!"
"Yes/
"Shake hands on it," the businesslike maiden demanded.
The young man did ao, thinking it
the most amusing incident he had ever
borne a part in. The young lady,

Wainm-to See His Nose.—Young
Blabbitt hal been making calls at
stated intervale for aome time in South
Olinton. Lut Sunday night he called
aa usual, and after waiting an hour in
the parlor the girl's little brother
came In, and in rather a sheepish manner uked to ue Blabbitt1- nose. "See
my now!" exclaimed Blabbitt. "What
do you want to ne my nose fori"
"Will, Plummer Plunkitt wu ovor

St Um, and ma uid ihe thought you'd

They not only wager their money, but,
losing all that, often bet and lose their

New Use Tor a Telephone.
A police inspector-at Odesu hu discovered a new uw for the telephone.
One day a policeman brought to the
atation a Jew, having in his possession
a quantity of silver believed to be
stolen. But as tho Jew stoutly declared the metal to bo his own property, the police inspector was put in a
fix, from whieh all his crosi-examina-
tion of the presumed thief failed to
extricate him. He went to the telephone in the adjoining room, and,
mentioning to the officials at the police-
muter's office what had happened,
instructed thom to utter in solemn
tones, on a signal being given, the
words, "Itano Smeliansky, it will he
better for thee'to confess that thou
hut robbed somebody, otherwise thy
punishment will inevitably be more
severe," Afterwards, summoning the
Jew into the room, he pointed to the
instrument on the wall and told him
that it really did not matter whether
he divulged his crime or not, oa the
"machine" would do. it for him. At
this the Jew laughed outright, while
the inspector placed a iheet of paper
on the table and prepared to take
down the confession. When everything was ready, ho told the Jew to
put tbe tube to his ear and decide
whether he would confess himself or
allow the "machine" to do it for him.
Then, giving the signal, he returned
to the table, when a second or two
later ho had the satisfaction of seeing
the Jew's face turn deadly pale at
hearing the solemn advice mysteriously
conveyed to him by the "machine,'
and of noting down directly afterward, a penitent confession from the
thief's own lips.
 a.
The Earth Born of Fire.
Soionce spans the gap between the
present and the past. Its magio fingers lift the curtain and we gaze upon
tho sublime scene of our earth being
born from the enn. No era stood at
its dawn. No historical ovent ran
parallel with its birth. A seething
ocean of fire, whirling around on its
axis at the rate of a thousand miles an
hour, like the impatient racer, darts
away in space, sixty-eight thousand
miles an hour, on its unseen railway
around the sun. How grand the
spectacle, as we gaze upon the fiery
billows, heaving, surging, bounded on
all sides by a blazing sky ! Seething,
boiling, like molten iron, now it wildly
leaps forth ns if to embrace the fiery
clouds; now retiring, crouching, like
tho tiger for a fatal spring, it sends its
fire-capped billows into the very bosom
of the burning sky! But I despair.
It is not for mortal pento picture a
scene so sublime. The Tartaros of the
Greeks, where tho flaming Phleoethon
rolls ita waves of fire, ia but a Chinese
firecracker when compared with it.
There is no day here now, for the
sun's rays can no moro be seen in the
blinding light of melted metals than
the dim beam of a tallow dip in the
midst of the electric light. There is
no night hero, to bring rest and reposo
with its cooling dews and southing
shades. There is no autumn with its
"rainy season," no winter with its
freezing blasts to mitigate the burning
heat.
Where, then, was all tho water thnt
is now contained in our oceans, lakes
and rivers? It had not yet been formed
—not a single drop. Its elements
(hydrogen and oxygen) wero everywhere; but water oan form only undti-
eertain conditions, and these conditions
wefo not present. There were no coal
measures then, no limestone, for nll
the carbon was far away from the
earth. All tho stones and all the
metals were then in a like condition,
resolved by the heat into their original
elements, and by the heat driven off
into space in spite of gravitation.
Wo take no note of time as wo gaze
upon our embryo planet, for no dial
has measured its houn, no pendulum
has paced its seconds. The heat radiates into space, reducing the temperature of our globe at its surface. As
tfce ice forms on the bosom of a lako,
so rook on the surface of the shoreless,
fiery sea. Tho rocks form, break into
fragments by the tossing of the fiery
billows, re-form in a greater mass,
again to bo crushed and broken like
sheets of ico in tho wildly rushing torrent. Hound and round the globe the
molten waves incessantly roll, tossing,
tumbling up the embryo crust into
craggy islands, against which dash the
fiery waves and congeal into rock and
girders, binding the islands into continents that reach forth toward each
other until the fire is covered and its
clory hidden from our view. It now
ceases to shino aa a Ntar in the heavens.
Henceforth it must depend upon othor
bodies for its light, nnd finally, when
miles in depth of crust have been
formed, its heat also. - -Froin the. Port'
land (Or,) Wed Shore.
Tho people of this country have
spoken. They declare by their patron-
ago of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil, that
thoy hclicve it to bo an article of genuine merit, adapted to the cure of rhenma-.
Ham, as well as relieves the pains of
fractures and dislocations, external in*
juries, corns, bunions, piles, and other
maladies,
Thero is a disagreement within tho
combination which monopolizes the
quinine market of the world, which It
is calculated will reduce the cost of
the article to the consumers some 80
per cent,} when rogues, ate.
